Monday's success was positive proof
to Director J.J. Robinson, the act,

hard work can reap sweet rewards.
Thanks to superb lighting set up
by British Council Representatives
the play was offto an immediate
good start; besides there were no
trying speeches, before or after, to
take up tedious time. Scenes flow,
ed into each other, the curtain only
filling when a change of scene was
absolutely essential.

IN EXCELLENT WEATHER, which elicited references to a few of thc Great I.
Bard's comments on nature, the first Shakespeare Drama and Music
Festival event took place last Sunday-a "pageant" interlarded with open
ing speeches and some welcome strains of song and 9 usic.
Spot on time the four floats, preceded by 'the Music Lo'vrs Band as
heralds, passed through the'gas of the newv Grammar .School. The
Administrator and Mrs. Lovedac: appeared through a side-entrin'e just 2.
afterwards. It was not a true pageant in ihe .ense that pageantry implies a
procession like a mosaic, and nobody in costume was seen between the four
cars; some vell-aLured pedestrian Shakespeare characters would certainly
have filled in the gaps and added colour anid ballast to a sli;ghly meagre.
spectacle. .
The crowd was large and happy-some two thousand strong, half of
them youths and children. The press was given choice vantage-point,
and watched the charming Midsummer iigvht's Dream float convey King
Oberon and Queen Titania and their retinue beneath flamboyant branches
into the ampi hcatre. As Yea Like It with its Robin Hood effect came
next (unhappily devoid of Rosalind and Celia) and with potted palms in
the the forest of Arden; Julius Caesar, Henry V and Hamlet were effective
in decor and costume.

IN these days when thousands, nay
millions of dollars are spent all over
the world on efforts to prevent or alleviate
hideous acts of violence between man and
man, we do not consider an expenditure
of some two thousand dollars on a Shake,
speare festival in Dominica an extrava-
gance. It is.in fact an investment in the
universality of language, good relations and
enlarged horizons. If we offer elsewhere
minor criticisms from the viewpoint of a
Shakespearean purist and a lover of the
best in Elizabethan language (the language
of Elizabeth II as much as of Elizabeth I),
that does not imply that we underrate in
any way the main concept of the exercise.
Through this drama and music festival
Dominica honours a great creative mind
which has lived on for over three hundred
years after its mortal shell hid pe shed.
It is good that we should join together in

there is any other political party in the

Dominica's Shakespeare festival is an

and many people of all ages and several

Shooting & Pass-
The ability o" the forwards
to shoot mean that they score
goals. Shooting practice
therefore developing strength
of shot and accuracy and the
speed with which the oppor,
t nity to shoot can be take%,
is very important. Practices
i. Driving the ball conti/
nuously against: a wall wh;ch
can be divided into numbered
arezs for accurate shooting.
Both feet should be used for
pov.erful fas: shooting.
2. Same as in (I) but
moving away from the wall
and towards it so t h a t
strength of shot must be con,
tinually mod i fi e d. The
same activity can be done
with a partner hitting the
ball alternately.
3. Acanrfeed B the ball
from a variety of angles and
heights and at. varying speeds.
B must quickly control, and
shoot for accuracy and
power at the wall.' The
same practice in the goal .s

4. Practice all angle .shots
at the goal vrith (a) the ball
moving towards you (b) the
ball moving away and (c) the
ball coining in from the side.
Work with a partner who
feeds the ball.
5. Running on to a
throughpass to s' hoo t.
Where possible one should
develop functional practices,
i. e. practice with situations
which do arise in the game,
and this means an opposition.
Employ a 2 v. i set, using
a wall pass. A passes to B
then A moves away from
bis maker into a space to
receive return from B and
shoots immediately.
Practise goal approach
situations with an opposition,
trying to score each time.
For versatile shooting, prac,
tise volky shots and also lobs
and floor shots with the
inside and outside of the
foot --this type of shot is
used when the goal keeper
advances out of his goal.
Passing involves good con,
trol of the ball when receiving
it and good distribution. A
good player knows where his
pass is going whilst he is
receiving it from another
player. (Coet.on p. 10o)

Showering the blame on Bobby Siamp-
Son::- Thisiss as may be. But al-
-hough one recalls that Simpson did
go n to bat on the thumd cay with
the total at 570 for 4, it must be
remembered that a couple weeks ago
hand manager Roy Steele cabled
for another last bowler to take the
place of the injured Conolly and the
Australian Beard of Control refused
to entertain the request. McKenzie
and Hawke were being overworked
in county games and so Simpson
must have felt that the task of getting
England out twice on a teather-bed
pitch would be too strenuous for his
key bowlers.
Boost Confidence
Although the last five England
wickets fell for the addition of only
5I runs, this draw, well earned, must
tend to boost England's confidence
in their first class batsmen. The last
test at the Oval should be a good
one with both teams about equal
strength. The latest report is that
Cowdry is back in good form scor-
