Defence Of
Expulsion
Sir, Recently, there appeared
in the local press letters criticizing
the expulsion of pupils at S.M.A.
I was waiting for more such letters
before commenting. I think that if
the writers of those letters had not
neglected certain basic ideas, and
had obtained more facts about ad-
ministrative efforts affecting the sta-
tus of boys in the school, they
would certainly have refrained from
making their attack, which was by
no means nqt bitter and in which
flowed an, undercurrent of bias and
prejudice.
"IndignapF' was wrong when be
or she stated' j a letter appearing in
the 4th July issue of the Dominica
Herald that S.M.A. expels pupil

as "dull", bav: spent five years ant

know.ihetieart always some smart
pupilswo come to school,, not to

they (the' smait pupils) do no;
understand nor wish to t.y to under-

not perform home work assignments
without sufficient reason, who ate

be corrected by teachers (and, I dare
say, by parent, even if some parent.
do not: admit it!), who are even
absent from school when their par-
cnts and guardians think they ar. at
school.. These are the pupils who
came from.some of our many negli-
gent homes so negligent some,
times, that the parents and guardians
hardly have the ability, time, desire

Badly-behaved boys who are
dull have little chance at S.M.A.
The main reason for this is that they
have two-fold adverse power in
the class-room, and beyond. Not
only do they not take instructions
themselves, but they also prevent
teachers from giving instruction, to
capable and willing boys: they force
teachers too frequently to stop lessons
in order to attempt to correct their

Act Now Mr, St. Luce!
Sir.
Allow me a little space to pro-
phesy the shortcomings ofone or more
unfortunate Grand-Bayians.
That piece of road from "Deux-
Pont" leading to ravine "Yec-Yee"
requires medical attention now.
Proof of this has bcen the regula-
rity with vhich heavy heaps of deb-
ris have been falling. I can readily
count five monstrous heaps look
out for others.
It is gratifying that nobody has
been buried there yet.
Seventy-five percent of us redes-
trians trod daily on that road to river,
garden or otherwise. Furthermore it
is the shortest way to get to the vil-
lage, police station, cemetery or hos-
pital from outside villages as Dub.'
ique, FondSt. Jean and Petite Savy
anne. L'Alke has only one street.
It's heart-breaking to drive down and
up that "steep bill" when an carter
passage could be had.
Why not make that road motora-
ble then? Infact why not join Yee-
Yee to Deux-Ponts, since the rest is
already notorable?
Now that the caterpillar is a stone's
throw sway, we want dear Mr. St.
Luce to take some positive action to
prevent any hazard.
Of course, it is nice to s!eep
soundly now and awake only when
election is around the bend.
It is jobs like this, Mr. St. Luce,
the tax-payers pay you to do. Time
to make an ex a m i n action of
conscience ..

could all be inspired by tne
common purpose of prcmct-
inm the development of the
Commonwealth by a coor,
dinated programme of joint

British Government said that
they wouli be prepared to
make a substantial contribu-

would enable the members

cardiac patient to suffer nervous strain.
Few people are at their case in a den-

Rende-Marie L'Aventure, mother of
one child, who was being treated for
heart disease by herDo ctor at
Point B Pitre, omitted to mention her
complaint t- her surgeon-dentist at
Morne L'est.
The dentist, who had already per-
formed two extractions some time ago
Ln this patient, pLoceeded to extract
a third tooth: the lady's heart failed
during this minor operation. A near,

inquest, and the girl's parents said
they were stunned but not astonished
at her sudden end, since they knew
of her weak state of health.

i World's Most Powerful Plane


Faster B VC- 10


The giant new VC-io airliner-the most powerful in the Western world-is now operating
on British Overseas Airways Corporation routes to the Middle East.
It is part of the airline's general plan for the gradual replacement of the famous Comets. The
VC-zo, powered by four mighty Rolls-Royce jets mounted at the rear, will bring some striking
time reduction for journeys to countries in the south-east Mediterranean and elsewhere.
Some examples: London to Baghdad non-stop in five hours 25 minutes compared with eight
hours by Comet via Cairo; Beirut to London in four hours 56 minutes compared .ith the
Comet's five hours 40 minutes; London to Kuwait in six hours non-stop compared with the
present nine hours I5 minutes taken by the Comet with two stops on the way.
The VC-o carries up to 135 passengers and cruises at 600 miles an hour. Soon the Super
VC,,o will be in service. It will take up to iso passengers and have a range of more than
5,00o miles.
Operationally the VC-zo, which was designed to lift a big payload from hot, high altitudes
and short runways, has lived up to the B.O.A.C.'s high expectations.
For the first time it has proved possible to operate a non-stop daylight flight from Lagos to
London with a full payload, and this service is proving extremely popular.

THE annual general mending of

It is hoped that the sub-corumitt:e

generally tone up the standard of play.
With the Windsor Park in its pres-
ent pallous state it is unlikely that the

will gi clubs a chance to get scme
much Oeded practice, which up to
now is net in evidence, and also suffi-
cient time to pay the required regis-
tation fees.
The question of referees and lines-
men must be approached seriously.
The subcommittee should write each
club asking for 2 players who know
the game sufficiently well to control a
match with the whistle, or to assist
with the flag. Here the onus is on
the clubs personnel. It is their res-
ponsibility to see that they don't sub-
