Mr. Chapman declared,
towards the close of a bril,

address, "I am speaking of

power in Dominica would
be receiving the attention you

plied: "This is in fact a very,
very important question in,

Labour Party in Dominica
that will have as much help
as I have been talking about?
The answer is NO. When
Ihave been talking to n.i gh t,
I have been talking about

on to say that naturally he

region When asked later
by a questioner whether he
thought two dollars a day
was sufficient for a man to
maintain his family on, Mr.
Chapman referred back to
this statement sympathetically.
Mr. Chapman suggested
that "the U.S., Canada an!
Britain together might pro,
vide the money for putting
these islands on their feet",
through an overall federal
scheme for the whole of the
Windwards and Leewards.
"In every sense of the word
i: is important to have this
federation .... There are ten
hundred million people in
the British Commonwealth
to help. In your homeland
there are 50-60 thousand.
We have got to help them
as well . But you must
not regard Britain as just a
cow to be milked . We
will want to be assured that
you are putting in what
money you can too."

HOW MR. STEVENS MET LABOUR M.P.s
The following portion of letter (hand-written oil a
blue airmail form from an address in Seven Sisters Road,
London, and dated 19. 12. 59) was received by Mrs. P. S,
Allfrey (then President of the Dominica Labour Party and
a Federal Minister). She did not know at the tim: that
Mr. Stevens had been negotiating with Mr. C. A. H.
Dupigny to join another political party.
After two long paragraphs about personal finance and
his reception in England, the letter continues:-
"I was surprised that Barclays advice preceded us
here, and disappointed that neither Ctown Agents nor
Colonial Office has been briefed about my visit. The
Crown Agents promised to write Dominica and let me
know the reply. They have promised to pay our passages
by air from New York to Dominica in April next. We
hope to spend abott six weeks in New York with relatives
and friends. I am hoping to receive a refund of the
amount paid for the passages from Dominica to U.K. If
you can say or do anything to speed up the Govt. promise
to refund this money early in January 1960, I shall be
"Finally and most important I retire on April, 16,
1960. On the l8:h write me up as a member of the
Labour Party. Please let me know the fee. Then while
I am.here I want you to recommend me t? the most im,
portant Labour M. P's, Officials, Secretaries etc. here in
London, I wish to talk freely with them so that we can
give fire to Labour in Dominica. You are in a position
to persuade one or two top notch folks to visit Dominica
and speak there. We need more capable people; we need
leaders. Help me however you can to get the necessary
connections and ideas here.
"We have a serious handicap in Dominica in not
having an organ. Surely if Labour is willing here it can
help us to publish a little weekly in Dominica, I could
pledge to help make it worthwhile to the people who want
t-p, rSud-itneTsem to getanything written with interest
aandcopinection at their level. All over Dominica people
have invited me to go in for politics but as I am not
persona gratia in the service. There will be tim: enough
after April 16 next. The Baron Government will do
everything to prevent general election nexc year. The Col.
Office and the Federal Government should insist on the
decision at the last London Constitutional Conference
to have one.
"I should like to hear from you as early as possible
with plans for the 1960 campaign. I am unable any
longer to see Dominica's needs economically and socially
without being able to help her. I am learning all I can
here in preparation for what lies ahead. I have already
had callers from home and I need not mention that you
will do all you can to help Helen to extend her
"P.S, Although I promised not to state my address,.
I did and haven t another form to hand. Messrs-
Griffiths, Noel Baker, Gaitskell etc. etc. are among
those I should like to meet."
On 16th March 1960, Mr. Stevens wrote to Mts.
Allfrey: "Thank you immensely for the connections you
gave me. I met every person mentioned in your letter and
had valuable discussions with each in connection with the
work that lies ahead." Later still, he wrote and thanked
her for "sending along Mr. George Thompson M.P."

Drawn Match At
At a cricket match played be-
tween the Calibishie and Marigot
Teams, which began at 11.30 on
Sunday zz Nov. Calibishie was the
first to bat and they made 1o5 runs.
Marigot then batted and made ISz
runs by wh'ch rhey led Calbishie
by 47 runs. Second innings for
Calibishie was very successful; but
unfortunately for them and also
Marigot there was not enough time
to end the match. So the day's play
was ended thus: Calibishie 183 for
9 and Marigot _had no time to bat
again. The match was declared
drawn by the Calibishie Captain
with which M arigot's capt. agreed.

A LOT TO BE DONE
AS Mental Health Week draws to a
close the Dominica Mental Health
Association can congratulate itself on
having made considerable progress in the
last three years. No longer is the Mental
Hospital a "lunatic asylum" and officially
part of the gaol; instead it is administered
by the medical department a.nd the n"mn,
ber of patients fluctuates between 15 and
40 instead of over So. This has been
achieved partly by drawing the attention
of the sad plight of the mentally ill to the
authorities concerned, but largely by a
change of attitude by the public (the voter
Much work is still to be done and,
more than ever, people are beginning to
realise that there is no stigma attached to mental
illness. The mind breaks down occasion
ally from the stresses and strains of life,
just as the body can catch diseases.when
in a weakened state. Mental illness,
tdmaref isno .more -s~aneful than
pneumonia, and can (in these days), be
as completely cured.
SFifteen patients only are in Dominica's
mental hospital as we write these words.
But this does not represent the number of
mentally ill in Dominica who are in
desperate need of medical attention. If
one includes all the alcoholics (a form of
mental illness), the depressed persons, the
"wild" men and women who curse and
rave aggressively whenever they are frus,
treated, and the more or less harmless
wanderers who roam the streets muttering
to themselves, then the number of sick in
mind must number over a thousand (as
one authority stated at a lecture this week).
.All these people could be helped, perhaps
cured, by proper psychiatric treatment.
But these persons would have to come to
a mental hospital as voluntary patients -
under their own steam. Could any doctor
persuade them to go to that "asylum" next
to the prison, with its lack of amenities,
lack of a qualified psychiatrist, and grim
atmosphere We doubt it; the shame
attached is too great.
In Britain, over three-quarters of the
patients in mental hospitals (which are
bright, cheerful, unbarred places with
beautiful gardens) are voluntary patients.
They have not been committed by a
magistrate and two doctors as "raving
"lunatics"; they have come to hospital on
the advice of their physician to be curd -.
and cured most of them are, often in a
matter of wLeks. And when they return
home, the neighbours do not treat them as
"crazy", they just say, "Mrs. So-and-so
had a nervous breakdown" or, "Mr.
Whatsit has just come out of hospital",
and they do what they can to be friendly
and help them.
"A country is judged by the way it
treats its mentally sick" it has been said.
More and more, it has come to be realized
that the whole quality of a nation or a
community can be judged by its state of
mental health. Hitler suffered from one
of the most catching mental diseases -
paranoia and he infected the minds of
millions of Germans; the moral is clear.
Let us make up our minds to use the best
medical care in the best hospital or clinic,
cal conditions to make sure that, in the
future, Dominica will be a well-balanced,
socially normal society. To do this we
have to lay our plans NOW for the ser,
vices of a psychiatrist and for the building
of a wing of the Princess Margaret Hos,
pital for mental patients. Only then can
we alleviate the sufferings of the wretched
people who live in states of fear, depression
and anxiety and who above all are afraid
to be branded as crazy if they are sent to
"that place by the prison."
Mental illness in Dominica is often
hidden, by the patient or by the family
who are "shamed", but cure is possible,
and the people themselves should press
their Government into, taking steps to re,
move this canker from our midst. (Our
second editorial will appear on page 11).

The People Gets The
Government It Deserves...
HOW far does this apply to us in Dominica ? Take a
lo'k at Coney Island and probably you can draw
your own conclusion. Our government has failed to see
that Coney Island is detrimental to me economy and so
they have allowed them to come in. And we the people
of Dominica whose pockets are directly affected by Coney
Island also gave great support to it.
Where are our senses ? Did the $70,000 carried
away last time have no effect on us W? ll if we could
not s:e how Coney Island was detrimental, could we not
ask ourselves, "How is Ccney Island helping us? ". Is it
solving any of our problems ? Is it helping to eradicate de-
linquency Is it helping ,o eradicate illegitimacy ? Is it
helping to educate our people ? is it bringing money to
our Island i These are the questions we should ask our-
selves before lavishly spending cur money at Cor.ey Island.
Probably you, the readers, of this article, can still do some,
thing about it by withholding support. Let us try to help
our country by not making the same mistakes as our gov,

OUR BEHAVIOUR AT RALLIES..
WE were well expecting the Royl visit of H.R.H. the
Duke of Edinburgh to be a memorable and exqui,
site one. In a sense it was, however, it is a pity that things
turned out so badly at the Rally of the schools a: the Botan,
First of all, there was no crganizat;on. The schools
were asked :c be there at 1o:5 when the Duke was not
arriving until 10:45; this resulted in many children fainting.
This long waiting also caused the children to grow ex,
treamly restless and so the lnes were broken and there was
no order among them. The organizers shoulI have asked
the schools to be there a little later than the prescribed time.
Let us pass over the other faults of the Rally like the
failing P.A. system and the C.M.'s speech and move on to
the other "faux pas" made by the schools.
On the Duke's tour around the arou_-ds the students
could be seen rushing from one side to the other which re,
suited in some having worse views than if they had stayed
where they were. There was no march pass and no cheers
were giver. Thanks to the dance given tle day was saved.
My object in speaking of all these faults is to show the
students how childish and destructive it is to be disorderly
at such functions. True enough it showed -'ur enthusiasm
and joy of the visit but we should never let it get out of
hand. In so doing you bring down your name, thR name
of your school, the name of your country.

POLITICS IN DOMINICA
POLITIcs deals with the mainer
of the way of life in the state and the
way in which its functions is seen in
the process of time. Some people look
at politics as something only designed
for a few, or perhaps a feature of base
values. The science of politics is of a
very high academic value, and ought
not to be regarded as something mean.
The London School of Economics
provides the opportunity for research
in political science, as well as among
other recognized insLitutio.s. It would
be a good thing for us to concern
ourselves with the affairs of the siate,
and refrain from the philosophy that
"I am net interfering with politics"
for if you don't it does with you. For
legislation of the state must be ob-
served by every citizen of the state or
resident of the state.
How do we look at politics in
this Island! Perhaps too sentiment,
tally and individualistically for na-
iional progress. Our sentiments
generally create the atmosphere for va-
luing in the wrong director, and too
often we fal to come to any logical
conclusion on the very simplest ef
issues. Let me illustrate for one mo-
ment. We tend to concern ourselves
not with the utility and inefficiency of
the individual, but with the know,
ledge f who is the individual and
whence he came. This behaviour is
vy evident in our capital city.
Political selfishness is one of those
ag that contributes largely to retar,
ding national progress. No section of
society should envy the setting up of
a development project in an area
wheteit is absolutely necessary. For

unemployment situation. Develop,
ments in any area in a country must
be treated as an asset to national pro-
gress. At this junction it is necessary
to compare and contrast the way in
which we treat our politics here: it is
far different from that of our sister
Eastern Caribbean territories. Facing
the facts is one of our weaknesses in
our political doctrine and the other is
to fal to hold in high esteem our
We are usually ashamed of our an-
atomy and physiology as far as this
country is concerned but must realize
that we are not responsible for the
potographv. To strike a:otier note
in the music of our political ideology
we have the tendency to avoid pro.,
bouncing on any political injustice
and we are only willing to do so only
when we are affected one way or oth,
er. All these political ailments must
be cured before we can think in terms
of national movement.
There is something peculiar about
politics in big countries which per,
haps we need to copy which of
course may do us all good. When
matters of vital importance come
before these countries they are treated
on a national bisis. For instance

EDITORIAL COLUMN (Cont. from p. 6
LABOUR PARTIES CONTRASTED
WE have said before in these columns that not evety
organisation calling itself "L-bour" in the Carib,
bean is Labour in the special British Commonwealth sense
of the term. The Editor of the HERALD, who (like her
husband) is a lo.ngterm member of the British Labour
Party, from which the original Labour Party drew suste-
nance and inspiration, reflects that there are undoubtedly
other returned migrants (among others) in the West Indies
in the same sound position. So far, such straightforward
socialist loyalty is no crime, even in a bright little tight little t
island such zs ours.
What happens then when a British Labour M. P. r
comes to a land where proven and loyal Labour Party
members have been shabbily treated by compatriots who
used them ruthlessly to attain power? The Brish Labo,;r
Party has always been noted for the dignity and gratitude
with which it has treated its founders and pionters. Not
fcr those people resentment of all criticism and the un,
democratic ejection of two founder-, such as the Dominica
Labour Party perpetrated upon Allfrey ard Loblack.
At the time of writing, we do not know vhpether the
visiting British Labour M. P. will be invited to meet all
C. P. A. numbers h re; we have been told that alh ar,
rangements to meet him must be made though the Minis,
ter of Labcur and Social Services. The uisitcr, closely
linked with the BritishCaribean; Association, will draw
(we hope) his own conciusiolns. In addition to its care
for the, rights of minorities all over the Commonwealth, the
Labour Party of Great Britain ieeds the support of that
same Commonwealth. And what is the Commonwealti.
A mixed, widespread amalgam of differing communities
sharing to some extent the same ideals based on justice.
It may help Mr. Donald Chapman M. P. to assess values
when he realises that in 1958 the writer of this editorial
scnd_ 345 votes to the present Chief Minister's 8968 and
there are no marked indications that the broadminded
electorate of Dominica has changed its mind save per,
haps in the town of Roseau, v.here Labour (hampered
with its present tendencies) has no hope.
If our distinguished visitor could find time to compare 1
the constitution of the Dominica Labour Party, drawnup
in x955 after kindly advice from Hugh Gaitskell, with a
recent pronouncement of the weighty and self/odvocated
President oftne local, party what would he find? The
local Party brings religion into the issue, which the British
Party does not; it mentions the Fatherhood of God, but
says nothing about the paternity practices of mankind!
'Where the British L.P.places strong emphasis on public own,
ership, the local Party speak of a "policy geared towards
free enterprise;" the phrase "efficiency in banana production"
was trotted cut, at a time when banana exports were dete-
riorating in quality due to dishonest practices.
The new Government of Britain is, we are certain, led
by men and woman who counterbalance ethical and
moral leadership by their small majority in the House. Can
we say the same of all the political leaders in power in little
