PEACE CORPS OFFERS HELP
Consultant Here For Exploratory Talks
THE POSSIBILITIES of Peace Corps work in Dominica were
investigated this week by Dr. Lambros Comitas, Consultant
in the Programmne and Operations Divisions of the Corps. He
arrived accompanied by his wife, Irene, on Sunday July 29th and
spent Mohday in discussion with Government Ministers and
Among the fields of poten-
tial assistance which the Peace
Corps offers are the, develop-

September, 1962 there will be groups
in thirty-two different countries.
In the Island of St. Lucia the Peace
Corps is working to improve farm
management and animal husbandry
skills. This contingent has the dis-
tinction of being one ofthe first Peace
Corps units to be sent overseas, -and iri

vice and in agriculture.
Terms Of Reference
The United States Congress, in its"
Peace Corps Act, states that this body
"shall make available to interested
countries men and women of the U.ii-
ted States qualified for se.vice abroad."
The materials and 'equipment with
which they would work could also be
supplied. ',Dr. Comitas said recently:

in their political or military affairs."
The first twelve countries to which
the Peace Corps has sent volunteers

of these people serving abroad will
exceed 3,000, Service is their keynote

Mac's Govt. Still
MAN-IN-STREET NOT IMPRESSED
Despite the fact that the threee-line
whip laid on the Tories when the
House of Commons divided over the
Labour Party's censure motion, pro-
duced a smashing confidence vote of
351 to 254, Macmillan's Government
is still at a low ebb in public opinion.
The Prime Miiister had outlined the
economic progress in the last x years
under 'fory rule, with an exposition
which stated that the standard of living
had risen in 11 years more than in the
previous half a century, unemployment
had been low and gold reserves had
risen by 350,000,000.
NATIONAL INCOMES COMMISSION
He announced a decision to set up
a national incomes commission as a
permanent body, saying "A new poli-
cy was necessary . what we need
now is a new advance." The incomes
commission would inquire into and
express views on pay claims of special
importance, taking into account the
wider considerations of national inter-
est. This scheme for leading Britain
out of her economic difficulties was
promptly dismissed by most political
observers as ill-frined and feeble and

COMMON MARKET TALKS
Meanwhile, in Brussels, Mr. Heath
(Lord Privy Seal) who is conducting
the negotiations for the U.K., sent for
Mr. Duncan Sandys, Secretary of
State for Commonwealth Relations and
the Colonies, to help him persuade
som: of the Commonwealth countries
like Australia and New Zealand to
scale down their demands for more
favourable treatment on temperate
agricultural products. The U.K. had
submitted a paper and proposals for the
inclusion in the plans for integration
ofsome of the temperate agricultural
commodities; g:own in Canada and
Australasia and this was countered by
a paper from tl e -Six" of the European
,Eco. omic Community. It is evident

EUROPEAN POLITICAL UNITY
The Belgian Government, rather
out of favour since the Congo debacle,
,tried last week to re-start talks on poli-
aical integration of Europe (one of the
secondary 'requirements of the E. C,
M.) Britain, of course, shies away
from such meters since she would look
foolish if such issues as European
freedom-of-movement were brought up
after passing the "Colour-Bar" Immi-
grants Bill. However, it appears that
the Belgium plan has failed to win the
support of the French government.
Apparently Foreign Minister Spaak
had suggested a three-man commission
to study political union which a West
Geiman spokesman said brought the
issue out of the stagnation in which it
had been since last April.
NEED FOR SPEED
Somewhat hopefully, the Govern-
ment have arranged for debates in both
Houses of Parliament for this week on
Britain's negotiations with the E. C.

Lemnitzer to Replace Noistad
Many Western newspapers are spe-

of NATO Chief, Laurie Norstad, is
not due to the current conflict over
NATO nuclear policy. It is believed
that Norstad has been converted to the
European idea of the defence of Europe
by Europe with corresponding con-
trol of nuclear forces, as thesis much
frowned upon .by the Pentagon. A
public excharige of letters between Ken
nedy and Norstad is at pains to show
that there is no disagreement, but that

months ago from the post he has held

Kenya Developing A
Sense Of National
Kenya is slowly developing a sense
of national purpose. This finally
became evident last week when Mr.
Tom Mboya the ,Minister of Labour
delivered his fist full scale attack on
the country's most urgent problem -
unemployment followed by the
publication of a broad and mature econ-
omic plan for Kenya by Mr. Kenyatta,
said the "Financial Times" in an article
on Kenya on Tuesday.
The two events seem to have raised
the country's morale as much as if not
more than the announcement ten days
ago by Mr. Maudling (then Colonial
Secretary) that Britain would give
some s1,ooo,ooo (WI $72,000,000)
more to a greatly enlarged land settle-
ment scheme, said the paper, i
It described Mr. Mboya's speech to
the Legislative Council as "impassioned
and hard hitting." (BIS)
Meanwhile Kenya's educational
development plans have been drastically
reduced to fit the money available,
Education Minister Lawrence Sagini
announced today. He said that unless
thie financial situation improves Kenya
will have more school buildings than'
it can cope with. Sagini also reported
reductions in spending on educating

/ SAILEDAY AUGUST 4, 1962,
On July 26th a long and varied
function marked prizegiving at W. H.
S. The key figure, in the proceedsgs
was Sister Joyce dailey, Principal, who
will soon be leaving ,to take religious
office in British Guiana. His Honour
the Admiiistrator was chairman, and
he voiced his expectation ofa full and
flank report from mhe Piincipal and a
sympathetic address from the main
speaker, Mrs. Allfrey. Mrs. Lovelace
handed over the prizes with graceful
ease, and two star pupils who receive
much applause were Miss Jean Jacob
(who carried off in armful of books)-
and the Head Girl, Miss Verdun Bur-
nette of Marigot, who gave the vote of
thanks. Mrs. Allfrey spoke of the
importance of courtesy in school and
everyday life, of the meaning of educa-
tion to girls, and she reminded the
youth in the audience of Rev, Roberts's
"Let no one slight you because you
are young;" saying also that Roseau
appeared to be a city in which there
were more children than older people.
Before the speaker and Mrs. Lovelac
were presented with beautiful cattleya
orchid corsages, Miss Roberts made a
brief but moving speech about Sister
Joyce's great value to the school com-
munity and how she would be missed.
Coloured slides of the school's activi-
ies and of a rer-eit -so -eftdhe
girls to Jamaica were also shown. In
her earlier report,'the Principal gave a
courageous and clearly defined resume
ofWesley High School, its beginnings,
its struggles, and its outlook. Admit-
ting that her speech was "defensive"
she proceeded to show the significance
of the School, its .place in Dominican
education, and its brave outlook for the
future. Songs and a play followed
speeches, noteworthy being the charm-
ing singing of "Belle Nuit." The
play was rather lengthy and would
have scored better by being a single
item on a separate occasion, but its
moral was well delivered by the young
actors. Reverend Roberts opened and
closed the evening with prayer, and thi
representative audience departed satis-
fied and impressed.

The ticket season ended last week
with the "needle" match between Ports-
mouth Boys and Roseau Boys School
played in the Botanical' Gardens.
Roseau won the toss and sent Portsmouth
in on a moist wicket. a move that ena-
bled them to sweep their opponents out
for 57. Roseau replied wih o06 and
in the second innings Portsmouth fared
better scoring 94. Roseau, given 20
minutes to make 45 runs "had.a go"
but accurate bowling by P. Gabrie
(5 for 23) thwarted them of an outright
win, losing them 6 wickets for 25 runs
at close of play.
Short speeches were given by the
Education Officer, by Mr. P. J. Israel,
Head-teacher Roseau Boys and Mr. A.
A. Benjamin, Headteacher, Portsmouth.
At the prize-givng the Roseau winners
were -Uayden Smith (batting), Michael

THE HAND THAT SIGNED THE PAPER
The hand that signed the paper felled a city;
Five sovereign fingers taxed the breath,
Doubled the globe of dead and halved a country;
These five kings did a king to death.
The mighty hand leads to a sloping shoulder,
The finger joints are cramped with chalk;
A goose's quill has put an end to murder
That put an end to talk.
The hand that signed the treaty bred a fever,
And famine grew, and locusts came;
Great is the hand that holds dominion over
Man by a scribbled name.
The five kings count the dead but do not soften
The crusted wound nor stroke the brow;
A hand rules pity as a hand rules heaven:
Hands have no tears toflow.

DANCE LITTLE NATION
EFORE the next issue of this newspaper appears, Jamaica will
have celebrated her pas de seul of Independence. We who
regarded ourselves as her brothers and sisters will stand at a dis-
tanxc, listening to the music emanating from che great house, wist-
ful perhaps that it is not a joint family occasion, but wishing the
merrymakers the best in their new, maturity and freedom. We
will think of over ~z6,ooo Jamaicans who wanted to share with
us their festival and their future; knowing with 1 our hearts that
one day surely the tides'df history will swing us all together again.
The third-largest island in the British West Indies salutes the
largest one of all. Jamaica's turbulent history has driven her to-
wards a heightened local nationalism. We are g'ad that she is
remaining in the Commonwealih of Nations; we wish for her
people relief from their pieva1ent confusionn and unemployment;
we, reflect'upon the dynamictexuberance of Jamaicans which' we
had raided as complementary to pur le;s, co-ispic-.u S qualities;
we praise the great social *w lare reform 'v.ic vic' Jamucans
have pursued, and their drive towards bJter aid: uiiversal educa-
tion for their children; we blink an eye (as one does on these oc-
casions) at their failings., Some of the truest West India'ns we
know are Jamaicans, and they will doubtless remain so.
The great metaphysical poet John Donne said that no man
is an island unto himself; and we may add that nowadays no
island is a kingdom urito itself. England is a little island off the
coast of Europe. Jamaica is a little island near the coasts of
Cuba and the United States. Trinidad is a little island off the
coast bf Venezuela. The more brilliant and welcome the inde-
pendence:celebrations, the greater the sense of global interrelationn
and the depie dence of all mankind upon a higher ahd large

cost us ? We arc assured that the answer is, it need cost nothing,
only the minimum which the assisted country can afford. When
you are building a nation, it is a mistake to measure everything
in cold dollars and cents.
There are pockets of apathy and misery in Dominica where
the Peace Corps could be of great value. There are villages
where the inhabitants live like Gogol's dead souls hardly
existent save as statistics on paper; our own social welfare people
haven't the time, personnel or wherewithal to help. The HERALD
can name some of these pockets, which seldom hear the footsteps
of Social Welfare workers, or Doctors, or any interested outsiders;
Good Hope and Mopo, Bellevue-Rawle village near Roseau,
large areas of the Carib Reserve, Boetica and hamlets near Delices,
parts of the Southern district.and communities not far from Ports-
we could all add to the list. Sometimes these "neglected areas"
cry out for just that touch of attention and stimulation which
practical sympathy would provide. The Peace Corps people
could give us just that; it is for our Government to work out how
best they may help us. When the technical workshop wing in,
Windsor park was first envisaged by Federal Government, it was
planned nor only for Grammar School boys, but for night classes
which working men and youths could attend to better their skills.

right idiots if we did not seize every opportunity which they offer.

By means oflesions in housecraft, courses on agriculture and education on

the general standard ofhealth on the island.
Mr. Ken Campbell, Production and Field Assistant of The Jamaica "Wel-
fare Reporter," who says he is greatly impressed by' the success of"Family Doctor"
in Britain, hopes to see a similar but localised version published in Jamaica with
encouragement from the local branch of the British Medical Association.
"It would be a inost useful medium for health propaganda," he told me,
"since 'Family Doctor' interprets health in the broadest possible sense and
deals with anything relevant to the maintenance of health, the treatment of sick-
asm, and the raising of a happy family. Health and happiness are indivisible."
The Jamaica Scial Welfare Commission gives courses in home manage-
ment; organises handicrafts, such as the making of bags, mats, baskets and hats;
rains voluntary social workers in classes, camps and workshops and puts' all its
emphasis on self-help and co-operation.
A Royal Commission in 1937 found'that Jamaicans ate too many starchy
foods, no uncooked green vegetables and too little milk and meat. 'Since then

Jamaica has 718 primary schools with accommodatin for 2i ,64z pupils.
There are also 41 secondary schools with more than 16,0o0 scholar-. Thc
Government's policy is to increase the number of ree places in seco idary schools,
end in 1961 there were 8,00o compared with only 90 in 1950.
The University of the West-Indies which serves th" West Indies as a
whole has faculties of medicine, science and the arts; th; add :iomul facultis of
engineering and agriculture are situated in Trinidad. The Un ve sity College
became 4 full university.when it received a Royal Charter carly in 1962 and will
confer ts own degrees in 1963.

Health services in Jamaica are continually improving, as reflected in the

19606, whili infant mortality has dropped from 86.7 per thousand live births to

ADDIS ABABA- -(ANP)-Yet another crisis has arisen to throw a
blight on Af'iran unity, this time, the wave of charges and counter charges be-
tween Nigeni and Ghana, two of Africa's.Jbstl nown and closely watch inde-
The charge, made against Ghana is that she is guilty of subversive activities
against'her larger neighbor (two states removed). 'W ile it is not intended to go
into the pros and cons of the situation, nonetheless, wl atevet the cause of the differ-
enices between the two, it becomes necessary that it be amicably .settled in the
mtreist of the overall continental objective. I

enter' the blood stream and contaminate the hole system. This dispute, though
centered.n the relativdy smal area of West Africa, is perhaps a symptom of a
more deep-seated disease, one wh ch concerns all the other independent African
states, and even those that will become independent in the future
Much has beie said in the many conferences of Free Africa of machinery
to deal with just such a problem. The Ghana-Nigeria quarrel might thus be a
blessing in disguise, for if t; ere ever was a t me when such a machinery should be
put into operation, it is now.
Behind this dispute is an undertone of jealousy which tends to lead to rivaly
among African 'caders, even at tlis eary stage of the continent's evolution.
though all the facts of the Ghana-Nlgcria dispute are not yet known, this one
factor seems to play a weighty part in it. :
Both Ghaga and N;geria emerged frohithe Britis colonial system.. Pothare
m;mberr of the Common vealth. Both are comnitted to African unity.. Beyond
question, they and their fellow independent states have a Ion: and nornj path
before them. They have to contend with inertia of the past while trying to keep
in pace with the demands of the present and the future. With ta h rtep forward
for a long time to come, they will uncover new and added tes on abilities.
This unending seaicli fcr betterment 'makes it imperative t att ti r efforts not
be dissipated by inter tribal, inter-community or inter-national disatreements. Yet
by the very nature of sovereignty and nat.ophood; it would be uiopian to rule out
independent thinking that would, time and again, lead each oft ai opposing direct;
tions. But, in such cases, the preservation of African unity sauuld provide the
guidelines to continued harmany.
Besides the internal differences that have to be met, there are r.any external
influences that make the roap to nationhood-maturity precarious. In the care of
Ghana and Nigeria, neither can afford to create a new front of combat by engen-
dering or encouraging this type of dispute.
S Obviously both recognize the urgent demand for raising the standard of liv-
ing of their people. The'developinent plans being put forward by each nation
testify to this awareness. In their external relations, both have given evidence of
their desire to work for the strength of the continent. In these two 'domineering
areas of their endeavors, disputes of the current nature, can only becloud their vision.
Now that Europe is moving out of direct control of Africa, the ;4ntinent i;
called upon to assume this control over its destiny. As-the Old "World is struggle,

SATURDAY, 4, AUGUST Im96
SALURDAY ALGUST 4, t96Z,
THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS
WE often wonder what might happen if one of the more enterprising shop
proprietors decided to try some modern merchandising ideas. Would he
be successful and get the edge over his competitors or would he be so cordially
hated by the rest o0 the shop-keepers that they wouldn't speak to him again! Or
would he care about that?
Lets just say this store-owner wasn't a Shillingford and that he was tired of
making a bare living... he wanted more than just a new Vauxhall car and a
nice home in Goodwill. So what did he do? Well, first he streamlined his
premises; made his store so that people could pass back of the counter and help
themselves. He would be instituting what is known as "self-service" and one of
the many advantages of this system is you do not need so many clerks and se-
condly, the customer usually buys more when left to her own devices amid piles
Then this chap advertised in the HERALD every week and listed the
prices of items he had for sale that were either exclusive with him or upon which
he had a lower price than the other shops. And while he is defying tradition
in Roseau, he announces in his advertising that he is going to remain open from
8 in the morning until 8 in the evening with no dosing for lunch-h.ur, or
supper-hour. And now the stage is set for some real merchandising: he is going
to give away some nice premiums! Everytime you,'shop at this fellow's place,
they give you a trading stamp for every iog worth of merchandise you buy. You
save these trading stamps and when you get a hundred of them, you can redeem
them for, say, a bath towel, worth 390 or, ifyou prefer, a packet of razor blades,
etc. But if yon wapt.to save those trading stamps until you have I,o0o of them,
Well, then, you can redeem them for an electric flatiron or a nice set of flmu .
sugar-coffee-iea canisters to brighten up your kitchen. But if you really hafg on
to your trading stamps until you have, saved' up 5,oo0 of them... yo.p can
turn this amount in for a record-player or a deluxe fully-equipped .bicycle 'or s:
table-model seiking-michine! And our shop-keeper has, ynur. exclusive 'business:
you buy everything in his store because.(i) is cleat and' self-service, (2) it opens
a full 1z hours, you can shop any time that suits you . not when it suits the
shop-keepe!' and .(5) his trading stamps give you extra things, for your home at
no additional cost. '
Of course our mythical Roseau store;has done a few other things to make it
appealing to go there. He has no open sewer or gutters right under his tront
door to slip and fall into! He has torn down the shacks in the rear of his place
and paved the are 'for Free Parking While You Shop .. and he has 'installed
a rest room for ladies and men and this forward-looking fellow put in, yes, guessed
it: air conditioning! Its cooler than Barclays inside. Has he got business: Well,
neighbour, after six months there wouldn't be another store in town!
Once in a while we bump into what we choose to call a cautious person.
Someone who "looks before they leap". Mr. and Mrs. Gray of Miami can be
classified as "extremely cautious." Before they came to Dominica, tlhe read every
shred of literature concerning Dominica that was available to them ii the libra
ries and bookshops n Miami, They even subscribed to the PLO le's Paper,
the DOMINICA HERALD for one full year before they embark:.i on the trip
to visit the island. And they came prepared. They shipped in a ntorcycle so
they'd be assured of transportation and they rented their hom- in Miami 'while
they "'look around" Dominica. If they like what they see, and if they think
they might be happy here. . and providing Government likes them -- they'll
stay! Meanwhile the HERALD takes this opportunity to bid a hearty welcome
to the Grays and we are sort of proud that they read the HERALD for a year
before coming to Dominica!
Tlien ther4 is another fellow from the States on Dominica who has been
here three times before . and each time he comes here he tries to buy some
land on which he can raise food crops. Some of, the established estates owners
give him friendly advice such as: "You better go back home, Mr. P., you don't
have enough money to buy a place, building it up and cultivating the- soil until
it will support you!" And all tie while this friendly chap goes from one end
of the island to the other, looking at land that is for sale, talking with other farm-
ers, visiting with Dominicans to see if its true: should he go home and forget
Mbst of the land that is "for sale" is (a)'either priced higher than a site on
Picadilly Circus in ithe heart of London or (b) so overgrown with distant rela-
tives wbo claim a portion of it that it would be a hundred years before Certifi-
cate of Title could be obtained or (c) both! But then, ifyot will spend a few
minutes talking with Mr. P. you will learn that most of Donunica is not for
sale at any price! Interesting?
At this point let me explain to my dear readers (and who knows! perhaps
some of them live id Miami), there is NO LAND TAX in Dominica and
this simply means, it costs nothing to retain a piece of land . you may not
know it, but we understand there ks noother place i the Caribbean where there
is no land tax. And this might also be the reason we have .(i) such pooi roads.

Lord Home, Britain's Foreign Sectetary, emphasised the U.K. Governments
desire foraa peaceful solution of the Congo impasse at -Geneva this week. The

Ka.taingai'ard will do nobody any good. Moise Tshombe. head of thke secessionist
state plays both sides off against the middle, stalls around and refuses to meet
Congolese Prime Ministers until they become so discredited that .t is too late..
Over the border in' the Rhodesias, Sir Roy Welensky, ex-pugilist Prime
Minister of the Central African Federation stirs up-the pot by backing Tshombe
and the International Capitalists who control the rich "Union Miner.le" mines ot
the province. Despite rumours emaatirig from Lisbon that the U.N. is preparing
a military campaignto t fo'e,- Katanga to' join the Congo Fede.-atim the U.N.
troops remain calm with strict ordE not to fire unless fired upon To pacify
Tshomnbe and avoid any criticism, .the U.N. have moved Frenchman Jean Back,
as U.N. Chief Representative in the Katapga and transferred him to Leopoldville,
replacing bimn with Kenyan, Eliud Wandu Mathu.
Britain counsels "patience" . . that is something Tshomb: hias a lot of,
besides power, mineral wealth' and the 'backing of big business. Meanwhile the
International Court of Justice at the Hague has decided that all me nber nations of
the U.N. must pay their contribution to the cost of the U.N. op,'itions in Suez
.'aqd the Congo, estimated at $170,ooo,ooo (U.S.). Russia and the Soviet bloc
have, of course, decided to ignore the judgement.
