The important position
occupied by trade unionists
on the British political scene
can be gathered from the
number of them who now
held key Ministerial posts.
Nine of Mr. Wilson's 23-

backgroun'Js in the trade
uniun movement, and several
of them have occupied major
positions in their union.
A first priory task under,

is the development of an
economic programme to meet
both immediate and long-term

task is Mr. George Brown,
member of the Transport and

The importance which Mr.
Brown attaches to this can be
gathered from the fact that
within a few days of his
appointment as Minister he

Diversionary Reading

As the Christmas holidays are on
us, readers may wish to heir about
some light reading- matter to take their
minds off everyday cares. We have
found the following books both enter'
raining and pro-oking; they can
be borrowed from the Public Library.
Why not put your name d o w n if
interested ,


:t Bruce Marshall: "The Girl From
it Lubeck". A hilarious satirical book
e about bodies like UNESCO and the
d British Council (and their U.S. and
s So vi e t counterparts) set mainly in
e Paris; it has a beautiful but amoral
heroine, and is full of jokes about
n spying. Another enjoyable book by
- Eruce Marshall Is "The Manth of
. the Fallen Leaves", amusing but
n tension-full narrative of mistaken
s identity in Warsaw. Marshall has
t certain points in common with Gra-
. ham Greene: both are Roman Ca-
n tholic writers with a witty sense cf
s humour, and both write with im-
s mense vitalty and pace.
e Iris Murdoch: "An Unofficial
y Rose". This brilliantly sensitive: ex-
h posure of the love-dilemmas of sever-
e al human hearts, old an 1 young, puts
1 its writer among such feminine ama-
. zons of literature as Elizabeth Bowen
o and Pamela Hansford Johnson. A
d psychological tour de force.
n Maurice Collis: "Cortez and Mon,
tezuma". A book for those interested
in Spanish colonial history; it lifts
history out of tedious statistics into
action and adventure.

PAT STEVENS NOTE BOOK

The G.M. Wronged For A Good
SO often we come up with criticisms made about the
inappropriation of speeches, that one wonders when
will times be appropriate. Dr. Williams was not wrong
when he said that it seems as though in the West Indies
that one must say nothing once it affects a section of society.
History and time have proved to the world that many
statements made and decisions taken at some time or other
proved right in the end.
No country or nation became what it is on a flowery
bed of ease. We have no idea of the personal sacrifices
made by leaders in speeches and in decisions taken, to
enable their countries to make considerable progress. We
have been too accustomed to our being represented by a
series of cocktail parties without getting down to solving o"r
national problems. Festivities seem to take away the whole
question of sincere representation. We have been too un,
necessarily modest in the past, just a mere set of hypocrites.
Sir Anthony Eden was heavily criticised for his action
ia the Suez crisis; the late John F. Kennedy did not get all
the backing for his policy of searching of U.S.S.R.'s ships
in Cuban Waters. One does not expect very much from
a certain class of people in Rcseau who believe they, are t'he
Be All and End All of Dominica. Their shallow minded,
ness and poliic-l selfishness have been responsible for all
the confusion in this country.
Education is not merely attending a secondary school
or holding a school certificate, but should also be the
ability to think well and straight. In Dominica
presently we are found guilty of the crime: of National
Hypocrisy. We cry out on one hand for deplorable con,
difions and on the o:Ler we say the C.M. was out of place
to' let the Duke knew of our difficulties. We are deliber. -
r"elv malicious to ourselves and our children. If we don't
"_y Say so but don'._ dake. -m lrl,* -
ridiculous. The C M. would be out of place to tell a
foreign member of Royalty of conditions here.. We are:
Her Majesy's Queen Elizabeth II subjects and not objects'
and it is good for her to hear of us, in theseremote Colonial
Territories. Freedom of speech is one, of our hopes for
political recognition, ..
The Duke did show in his rely that he was pleased
with the C.M.'s speech and his attitude towards. progress.
The C.M. never requested anything for himself he spoke
on behalf of the people of Dominica and for those opposed
to his policy as well. I am forced to suggest that accord,
ing to the so called intellectuals who wronged the C.M.,
perhaps the clergy would be considered out of place to ex,
pound his Christian Doctrine outside the walls of the
Church. If this island is to become a worthwhile territory
in the Eastern Caribbean, we must forget class and many
other things responsible for our backwardness and move as
a determined and sensible people, free to think for ourselves
in perfect national sobriety. I have more to say at a later
date when the opportunity arises concerning the question
of society and class. For I see now it is a battle of so-iety
vs. progress.

Dear Madam,
Allow me to write of
those lots around the botanical
experimental station, Kings Hill.
The water system there is very poor,
making life uncomfortable for fami-
lies. We have to go down to New
Town to get water. It is worse for
homes with large families. The
plastic hose put in over two years
ago as a temporary measure has a
lt of leaks, it has been damaged by
people digging foundations.
For three successive weeks in the

THE ADMINISTRATOR


IN another part of this paper, our readers
will note that a political speaker at a
public meeting has issued a warning to the
incoming Administrator of Dominica,
who has not yet reached our shores.
This editorial is intended to be reflective
rather than cautionary.
We regard the advent of this gentleman
from abroad as an important event, and
we will tell you why.
When in the late 195os the prospects
of a federated tenunit British Caribbean
nation looked fair and firm, it was gene-
rally assumed that island Administrators
would wilt gracefully away with the bur,
geoning of the young state: some even
said that they would be replaced by dis,
tinguished Advisers, presumably retired
Civil Servants, serving in an honorary
expense-paid capacity. What actually
happened was that the only personages
to be eliminated were the Governors of
b&ht-Wiai-dwaac dL.raaud'2' ri'dsE?1'"^'
role of any W. I. Administrator, although
symbolically reduced by constitutional
amendment, became more, rather than
less, significant. No longer is there a
group Governor to play a buffer part in
transactions between the islands and the
Colonial Office; if an Administrator's
actions are considered either inexact or
unjust, the only appeal is to some faraway
unseen group impatient to divest itself of
Colonial burdens.
We would say that a man who takes
substantive office in Dominica at this time,
when an Eastern Caribbean Federation is
in the offing, has a difficult and impor,
tant job. True, some of the prefederal
decisions will have been made without
his assistance (and evidently without the
assistance of either the Opposition or the
general public); but there will still be
points to clear up and counsel to be given,
for the Administrator who now ad-
vises Ministers in private and Ex. Co. and
does. not appear in the full light of the

WE are happy indeed to announce a
triumph of good sense over fiscal
stinginess and lack of vision. The lovely
federal ships presented by Canada to the
people of the West Indies will not yet be
sold after all or exchanged for smaller craft.
On May 9, 1964, this newspaper struck
the first major blow in defence of retaining
our gift vessels, invaluable for communi,
cations between the islands without which
we can never be welded together. We
had a frontpage headline DON'T SELL


THE PEOPLE'S SHIPS (remember?)
At that time, all the negotiations about
the ships were conducted in Regional
Shipping Council and the Dominican
public was never officially told what the
position was. We of the HERALD, how-
,ever, got early indication of the forces in
favour of disposal, and we decided to go
into battle and muster our own forces.
We were the first West Indian newspaper
to blazon this cause openly in the head-
lines. In that same issue of May 9 we

too late to decide anything.

Administrators have little influence in
these days ofelective government, let us
pose a few theoretical questions. What

FOOTBALL.
The first trial match to selec' a
representative team to tour in St.
Lucia in January was played rt
Windsor Park on Thursday. The
match was a poor one in virtually
all aspects of football; Construct';oi,
technique, ball control etc. A few
highlights lifted it from the dol-
drums, such as goals by Clem John,
Addie Pinard and Hugh Pinard
(playing for Skeff John's side) and
goals by Elwin and A. Cage (play-
ing for Ronald Osborna's side).
The inside forwards did some
useful work but all wingers were
hopelessly off target almost through-
outtbe match. The long absence
took its toil ofthe players and their
play. The final score 3-2.
