Trinidad -- Before And After
By Our Trinidad Correspondent
The British newspapers Manchester Guardian and Sunday Times published
two appraisals just before Independeuce celebrations in our country, in which the
predominant word was"sober". The Manchester Guardian si id that we seemed to
bt Approaching independence with far greater solemity than many people expected.
The Times mentioned Dr. William's appeal "for hard work, discipline and to-
lerance." Steel bands, said the Guardian were forbidden to play on the streets
and there was to be no opportunity for a public "jump up."
Nevertheless the crowds t u r n e d out in their thousands so much so
that at woodford Square during the opening of Par ligament our
children had to be content with seeing H.R.H. Princess Mary from very far off.
They could not even get near the erected T.V. sets. The National Guard and
all armed units in Trinidad went on route marches on different days; there was
the opening of the polytechnic, and a fine exhibition which lasted until Septem-
ber agriculture, health, education and so on; during afternoons, side-shows went
on. Another exhibition was of carnival costumes. Port-of-Spain was decorated all
over: on the main streets lights were strung in patterns and in the centre of each
string was a large papier-machi decoration of fruits, flowers or birds. In Frede-
rick Street there were oranges, slices of avocado, watermelon, cocoa, cashew. etc;
on Henry Street balisier, hibiscus and other flowers; on Abercromby Street there
were birds scarlet ibis, cocrico, semp and others. At night this made a beauti-
ful sight of lights and colour and was a real treat for the youngsters. T.V. sets
were placed at strategic points for the public to see what was going on inside the
Now the fete was ended and the future has to be lived. We had lots of
foreign visitors even Russians and Cubans. The Hilton Hotel was a beehive of
activity. I notice particularly that none of our Federal Ministers were anywhere
around. Did they refuse the invitations, or were they never invited? I can very
well understand their reluctance to attend, after the breaking-up of Federation.
I beleive that of all the "units" only St. Vincent was represented.
Meanwhile the election in Grenada has happened and many people here are
expecting the Grenadians to become our nationals. Tht ex-Mayor of Post of Spain
Mr Dennis Mahabir, in a broadcast recently suggested tha t the Grenadians should
ponder before committing themselves. Oithier hieri hive it that Trinidad wants
the Gren dijns.l so that our crole iopui'l.aion cin be in"'reased and thu"
keep the P. N. AlTong in povwer,.- liic ., ii1 C I. L I. -, . wouia not oe a
bad thing. In "The Spectator" a paper run by the same Dennis Mahabir (Septem-
ber issue)' there in an article by his brother, Dr. Winston Mahabir, one-time
Trinidad Minister of Health, entitled "Eric Williams- -A Prisoner of Power."
It is a very interesting 5-page article, with touches of satirical humour.
Dr. Mahabir says, for example: "The sociologist finds our diversity exciting;
the idealist finds it spiritually satisfying. Certain alarmists, some from frustrated
ambition, others from genuine fears, have sought to import into our territory the
hydra-headed monster of partition. Other vagabonds have even called for open
war of the races. As if any one ever wins a racial war. I am not sure that any
side ever wins any war. Anyone visiting West Germany, for example, would
believe that Germany and not Barbados had won the last war." Dr. Mahabir
later passes on to the immense challenge of the present. "I am convinced", de-
clares the former Minister, "that many who now revolve around the political planet
of Williams are like satellites in orbit, created by him, controlled by him at various
distances from him, and dispensable if and when considered by him useless or
undesirable. This phenomenon is at once the measure of the man's stature and
the chain that makes him a prisoner of power."
Another publication which has caused more widespread interest and joy is
the Trinidad Guardian's special independcuce supplement. As large as on
American Sunday paper, with a disappointing cover but full within of well-writ-
ten pieces about Trinidad's history, culture and endeavour, all over our beloved
land this publication is being stored on shelves, desks and drawers as a souvenir
record of the great event.

Barbados 1962 -- As Seen By Young
Impression of Guy Lapiquonne, aged 16,
Translated by P. S. A. -
Leaving home with the second excursion of students organised by Captain
Thorne, I arrived in Barbados, British island situated 200 miles north of Trinidad
and 95 miles to the east of St. Vincent. Seawell airport in more modern than
that of Fort-de-France, which I visited on my return from Barbados. Its architec-
ture, spaciousness, luxury and comfort are far superior. From the airport to town
we bowled along by cat for about 15 kilometres,
First impressions: the countryside is more monotonous than that of Martinique,
the people are very kind, and in the suburbs all the houses are surrounded by little
gardens tended with jealous care.
Mr. Thorne had put me into the hands of a Madame Roach, who was able
to lodge and feed me for a month. Arriving at the same time as myself was young
Jacquens, pupil of Lyce Schoelcher, aged 12. The lady of the house quickly
introduced us to her son and to a young Martiniquan girl, spending her holidays
in Barbados, Mlle. Maryse Lamartiniere. I refused to go out that afternoon, bearing
in mind that I didn't know a single word of English, and everybody around me
spoke so fast! There were four of us at supper-the three Martiniquans above-
mentioned, plus an old gentleman.
The Roach family ate in the kitchen: the dishes were typically Barbadian-
fried flying fish, rice, curried potatoes, milk, guava jelly; they were appetising, and
I recall having eaten terrifically that evening. I then became closer acquainted
with the son of my hostess, and one of their friends; we chatted lengthily, far into
the night. Every summer they are accustomed to put up some Martiniquans; St.
Louis and Quenette appeared to be regular visitors there and had left behind vivid
Do you know what astonished me first of all? There, nearby under a roof
and cooing ceaselessly, there were some doves which were not at all timid! This
would seem completely crazy to a Martiniquan hunter. I asked about it, and was
told that British law forbade the shooting of doves and. punished any offenders with
imprisonment. I dreamed about this all night long.
Next day, I went along with a young comrade to the Aquatic Club, and
there we encountered the trio S. D. L.* We went off together by bus to explore
Brid~rmown, the capital: population 12,ooo. The buses here are very. modern,

conductor; they seemed to me bigger than those in Paris, and they only 'had one
Roor-contrary to what I had expected. We paid five cents (15 francs) for about
four to five kilometres; but for the same price one could have gone on much furth-
er. In the bus, the people were most disciplined, very clean, and the woihen wre
as talkative as the ones back home!
The town is flat; not a hill on the horizon; plenty of beggars in the streets.
The centre of town (commercial quarter) is situated on the sea-front, along a large
avenue without trees; there are blocks of flats of two or three stories, of very modern
design. We saw a PRISUNIC ("Woolworths") which was immense and had moving
stairways. How much it recalled Paris! I must be getting old-I had an insane
desire to go up and down the moving stairway several times, but dared not.
If one leaves the shopping street, one can lose oneself in narrow side streets with-
out pavements, bordered by one-storey houses made of wood, as old as the ones in
our Terres Sainvilles, and inhabited by people of modest means. Here and there
certain concrete-built flats sesmed completely out-of-place. There is a river much
larger than our Levassor canal, which big sail-boats can enter. I saw far off in
the port some very modern mechanical structures which are used for loading sugar;
like enormous praying mantises, their skeletons moved against the blue sky; if the
factories in Barbados are still rather old, the machinery for loading this product
which aggregates I65,ooo tons is the last word in modernity.
I did not make any contact with the ordinary people and can't give you
any information on the living conditions of anyone there. That will be the object
of my investigations when I return to Barbados. The young seem to be grouped
in clubs connected with their educational establishments; they practise a lot of sport,
especially cricket, baseball, basket-ball, tennis, and little football; their manners and
habits seem more free than ours: everything here seem to be copied from the Ameri-
cans. They dance a lot to hi-fi and to orchestras: there are many orchestras for the
young, and they seem to favour the guitar. Each Hotel has its dance-floor, with
diffused lighting where one can go and frolic once a week and again on Saturday;
thus one could go out dancing every evening, if one wished, provided one has a bottle
for the surprise parties and the two or three necessary dollars
for these occasions. Night life is more attractive than in Martinique, and one can
find bars with music open until dawn. Youth in Barbados appears to me to be
less cultured than our own, and much more practical; I can't exactly state with
precision what the snags are, for I really had no desire to sample everything, but
things are well organised down there for holiday life and dolce far niente. Of course
I will return there at the earliest opportunity, and if I have the time I will glean
some further information which may encourage you to go and see for yourself if
what I write is true.

TASTE AND STANDARDS
THERE is little doub that the standard of taste of the West
Indian peoples is, in many directions, shockingly low; and
there are good reasons for it, chief of which is the lack of op-
portunity for comparison and for the cultivation of discernment.
The earliest sc:tlers in thes islands were soldiers, adventurers,
commerce its and colonizers, very few of whom brought with
them libraries, musical instruments or works of art. Later on,
when their descendants became the leisured classes, the intellect-
ual vacuum still prevailed. A man like Pere Labt with his
glorious perspicacity and gift of words was a rarity in the early
A heavy Victorianism (which became the norm for every,
respectable household,) then settled upon the Caribbean" An-
thony Trollope, travelling postmaster of liberalviews, records in
one of his voluminous notebooks how he met a young, lady in
Port Antonio, J.maica, in the I85os. She -was dressed in a
%tfitt cfiioinc "llndIU -0nS~ arrd-71Te-'ola-r,.--rraT ,,d,.eg" d
brushed; bn her fingers sparkled many rings. But her. conver-
sation was of a banality so extreme that the visiting writer took
pleasure in recording every. word of it.
Lack of opportunity for comparison lack of art 'stafid-
ards will diminish, and is diminishing in the West Indies
now.th't communications from the great centres of learning in
the world are speedy and frequent. Nonetheless, the coloured
reproductions which are pasted on the walls of our little houses,
and which form the taste of children, are often atrocious present
nations of mediocre paintings; there are certainly mass-produced
copies of works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michael Angelo, Breu-
ghel, Rembrandt, Picasso etc. but we do not oftea fini them
The effect of films and commercial radio on the taste and
manners of his countrymen horrified Vidia Naipaul, novelist
who returned to Port of Spain after a long absence. Vulgarity
and scenes of violence through such mediums seemed to him to
be predominant: and it is the same everywhere.
It was therefore good that the Jaycees of Dominica promot-
ed a music festival, which will be reviewed at length in a later
issue of this newspaper. What a pity, however, that a group
of musicians who might have helped by their skill and talent to
provide comparative standards, refrained from performing.
Lack of taste and standards has its effect on speech, too.
At a political meeting on August 29, the Dominica Minister of
Labour and Soci:il Services was reported as having expressed
dismay at the inability of our young girls to converse socially.
Some of them, indeed, talk exactly as they did in Trollope's
time, with the same limited range of subjects: and the fact that
they may be lovely and well-dressed is only partial consolation.
Is our youth lacking in intellectual curiosity? The answer may
well be that young people talk the way the people around them
talk; and tiht they cannot speak of things which they have
neither seen, nor heard, nor read.
A great responsibility therefore rests not only on parents,
many of whom have early been deprived of the habit of discern-
ment, but particularly on teachers and on bodies like the library
committee, musical and literary organizations, and those who
have talent or the faculty of encouraging or revealing talent.
Only by getting to know the best and most original work can
anypne attain informed standards and develop taste.
The Labour Party Of Dominica
The objects of the Labour Party of Dominica are given hereunder, for the
benefit of our readership.
CLAUSE 11 Objects
I. To give effect as far as may be practicable to the Principles from time to
ime approved by the Party Conference.
To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their in-
dustry, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of
each industry and or service.
Generally to promote the political, social and economical emancipation ofthe
people, and more particularly of those who depend directly upon their own ex-
crtions by hand or brain for their means of livelihood.
z. To unite the forces of Labour within thE: Territory, and to secure the re-
turn of Labour Party representatives to Local Government bodies, the Territorial
Legislative Council and the Federal Government of the West Indies.
CLAUSE III. Human Higits
The Labour Perty of Dominica subscribes wholeheartedly to the Universal
Declararion of Human Rights as defined by the United Nations organisation, and
pledges itself to further these ideals.
In addition to watching over the civic right of the people, this Party seeks to
guard and cherish the natural benefits and advantages with which the Island of
Dominica has been so lavishly endowed by nature.
CLAUSE "IV. .Creative Skill

Commonwealth And Common Market
(Editorial Comment from Britain)
There is a new British Sunday paper or at any rate a familiar old paper
appears with a new name smaller format and 36 pages. It's called the "Sunday
Citizen" in big type adding "and Reynolds News" in much smaller type. In it is a
leader claiming that the Commonwealth Prime Ministers Conference was a "punch
on the chin" for Mr. Macmillan and that "the pro-Market newspapers are trying to
put over a gigantic confidence trick on the public." The "Sunday Citizen"
considers that "in every vital respect Macmillan failed to get what he wanted. The
real message from the premiers was 'we cannot stop you if the British people allow
you to go ahead but if you join the Six on present terms the sun has set on the
The "Observer" disagrees. "The time for decision has come," it thinks;
and though it does not say precisely, it clearly implies that the decision must com-
mit Britain to the Common Market without too much hope of effectively improving
the terms for the Commonwealth and without too much faith in all the claims that
are made for E. E. C. The "Observer" concludes: "What is certain, as Mr.
Bonham Carter said to the Liberals last week, is that 'if Britain stays out she will
be for the first time for centuries at the outside edge, not at the centre, of world
affairs.' We could no doubt manage well enough for ourselves-though not for
the Commonwealth- -but our influence would steadily diminish."
The "News of the World" says: "The blueprint for the Common Market
takes further shape. For all the noise and confusion the conference of Common-
wealth Prime Ministers achieved results. Now Mr. Macmillan and Mr. Heath
can move on to the next stage. Mr. Macm.i lan and Mr.
Gaitskell have given their views to the nation on television. Yesterday Mr. Gri-
mond put his case at the Liberal Party Conference. Mr. Macmillan made it clear
that he is looking ahead to Britain's future in 'a world of giants'. That is the true
objective--to find the best terms on which to meet the changing face of history."

Kennedy On Castro
The President of the United States
made the following statement to con-
gressional leaders recently on the situa-
tion in Cuba:
All Americans as well as all our
friends in this hemisphere have been
cone earned over the recent
movesofthe Soviet Union to
bolster the military power of the Castro
regime in Cuba. Information has
reached this government in the last four
days from a variety of sources which es-
tablishes without doubt that the Soviets
have provided the Cuban government
with a number of anti-aircraft defense
missiles with a slant range of 25 miles
which are similar to early models of our
Nike. Along with these missiles, the
Soviets are apparently providing exten-
sive radar and other electronic equipment
which is required for their operation.
We can also confirm the presence of
several Soviet-made motor torpedo boats
carrying ship-to-ship guided missiles
having a range of s1 miles. The
number of Soviet military technicians
now known to be in Cuba or enroute-
approximately 3,500 is consistent
with assistance in setting up and learning
to use the equipment. As I stated last
week, we shall continue to make in-
formation available as fast as it is ob-
tained and properly verified.
There is no evidence of any organiz-
ed combat force in Cuba from any
:t bloc corintry; of military bases
provided to Russia; of a violation otthe
1934 treaty relating in Guananamo; of
the presence of offensive ground-to.
ground missiles; or of other -significant
offensive capability; either in Cuban
hands or under Soviet direction aud
guidance. Were it to be otherwise, the
gravestissues' would arise.
The Cuban question must be cori-
sidered as a part ofthe world wide chal-,
lenge posed by Communist threats to
the peace. It must be dealt' with as a
part of that larger issue as well as in the
context of the special relationships which
have long characterized the Inter-Ameri.
It continues to be the policy of the
United States that the Castro regime will
not be allowed to export its aggressive
purpose by force or the threat of force.
It will be prevented by whatever
means may be necessary from taking
action against any part of the Western
The United States in conjunction
with other hemisphere countries will
make sure that while increased Cuban
armaments will be a heavy burden to the
unhappy people of Cuba themselves,
they will be nothing more. (U SIS)

PAT STEVENS i9. BOK
Most of us in Dominica are unable to see the work done by the Government
Perhaps we measure work only by the stitctu ral visibility. 1y this I mean school
buildings, hospital buildings, police Stations etc. It would be a good thing if-
Domin:cans would develop an appreciation for intellectu il achievements as well.
For the value of a nation depends largely on the g.:n,nel intellectual ability of its
people. Too many importa'it matters pertaining to educ.itive activities slip our
thought, and fail to arouse our enthusiasm.
The School'Leaving results for t is yc.ir in the Primuny Schools are on the
whole satisfactory, except in a few cases wlhre harder wo.!l needs be done, for
some large schools seem to send in too few studentssfoo th, cxamninations, I must
at this stage complement the teachers whose schools did well, and hope that they
keep up such good work in the interest of the intellectual wealth of the country.
It needs to b.: mentioned as well that we begin to enjoy the value of the training
given to our teachers abroad. I have also to say emphatically that the Govern-
ment must be highly commended in having sent 22 teachers for training abroad.
Six teachers were sent for courscs at British U nivcrsiticc, six to Erdiston College,
Barbados and ten to: Golden Grove, Antigua. The Government realizes the
value of Education, and is spending as much as possible on Education above all
things, and rightly so.
While on this question of Education, I wish o1 draw the attention of Govern-
ment to the fact that the Education Department is robbing the schools of two Se-
lected Grade Head Teachers who would, I believe, do a better job to the island
if they would be returned to the schools. .This I say is in the interest of Educa-
tion in the territory. ,
More arguments based on facts are: quite a number of the able Heal Teach-
ers have been sen to0 U.K. iad quilt a liw of the c .pble As.:itani 'Teachcrs
have been sent.to Barbados and Ant1lzU, as well., "Must we then leave our schools
in the hands of Pupil Teachert o. inre.:.irienced Assistant Teachers when we ha"e
two Senior Head Teachers playing clerks in the Office If some new posts were
created, and these gentlemen were appointed to them we would all agree, .But
here! They are not clerks,,they are iiotIt ichb (for tlky \ oill be in the schools').

Economic Topics For Discussion At "Worker's
formerly of the Trade Union
By far the largest number of subjects down for discussion at "Britain's annual
workers' parliament"- -the Annual Congress of the Trades Union Congress-to be
held from Septembec 3 to 7 concern economic matters-pay, full employment,
industrial development, and, not unexpectedly, the European Common Market.
These subjects have been put on the agenda by the trade unions affiliated to
the Trades Union Congress whose Congress-the 94th-in the big Lancashire sea
coast town of Blackpool. Any of the 185 unions affiliated to the T. U, C.,
which groups together more than 8,250,000 workers, may place up to two motions
an the congress agenda and these together with the detailed report of the T. U. C.
executive- -the General Council-form the business for the week-long gathering
of some 1,000 delegates.
The motions on the possible entry of Britain into Common Market reflect the
present spectrum of views throughout the nation. But not all of the motions
concern such wide economic issues. Some seek the support of the unions which
make up Congress for a fresh investigation into the structure of the trade union '
movement; others point to areas in industry.where trade unionism is still relatively
weak and where co-ordinated recruiting activity may be necessary.
As usual the motions cover, wide field-safety in industry, national insu-
rance, trade'union and. public education, arbitration machinery, television and broad-
casting policy, are among the subjects which will call for decisions. And not to
be outdone in topicality one union has put down for discussion the subject of
space communications. Once accepted by Congress a motion gdes to the T. U.
C. General Council for action and, while the affiliated unions usually hear as soon
is possible \\hahahas been done, the Council makes a full report on all its activities
to eachF Annual Congress.',
T.U s And The Arts
Congress, a new venture in linking cultural activities and the trade union move-
ment did in fact spring a couple of years ago from a motion passed at the annual
T. U. C, The motion was No. 42 on the agenda and the cultural organisation
which it has inspired is appropriately know as "Centre 42".
Linked in this venture are, among others playwright Arnold Wesker, singer
Cleo Laine and her husband jazz-band leader Johnny Dankworth, and such national
'trade union figures as transport workers' leader Frank Cousins and the engineers'
president Bill Carron. The aims of "Centre '42" are first to find a multipurpose
building say a disused factory or warehotise and next to set up working parties
in the theatre, film visual arts, and both classical and jazz music. Already trade
union festivals backed by "Centre 42" have been held in London and Norwich.
Others are planned this year in Nottingham, Leicester, Birmingham, Welling-
borough and Bristol. The festivals are to take the from of exhibitions of painting,
sculpture and architecture designed to mirror thr face of Britain. In an interview
with, a columnist in "The Post", the journal of the Union of Post Office Workers,
Arnold Wesker said that he believed it was up to "Centre 42" to prove itself.
Once it had, then it would rapidly extend its appeal to all sections and ages of the
trade union movement. (B I S)
St. Lucia L, P. Rejects Trinidad Union
The following release has been received from the St. Lucia Labour Party:
The executive committee of the St Lucia Labour Party, at a special meeting
held at party -headquarters on September 18, 1962, to discuss the result of the
Grenada elections and the possibility of that island's joining the unitary state of
Trinidad & Tobago, unanimously decided as follows:
i. That St. Lucia will intensify her efforts to effect a union of Barbados, the
Leeward and Windward Islands or as many ofthem as may decide to join that union:
2. That the party will never (repeat never) support any idea of joining the
unitary state of Trinidad and Tobago:,
3. That any federation of the Eastern Caribbean that may eventually be formed
should proceed immediately to independence and membership of the British Com-
monwealth anrd the United Natiods:
4. That ny attempt'by Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom to
debase the constjtution of this territory will be resisted to the utmost and with all
the power at our command.
The party recognizes that only a political union with the remaining territories
of the Eastern Carbbean will satisfy the hopes of the aspirations to economic viabil.,
ity, political dignity and social self-respect of he people of St. Lucia.

At 4 p.m. on Sunday the I5th instant a public meeting was held at the
Portsmo uth Market Square the use of which was kindly permitted by the Chair.
man of the Portsmouth Town Council.
The speakers were the first Vice President Mr. R.P. Joseph, the General
Secretary and the Treasurer Mr. Deveril Lawrence.
Mr. Lawerence among other things said (in effect) that the manner in which
Trade Unionism was approached in its early stages in Dominica could not be said
to have been satisfactory; that Trade Unionism was not intended to disrupt the
economy of any country by getting workers set against employer and employer
against employee. Instead Trade Unionism was out to ensure that happy relation-
ships were firmly established among employees and employers in order that orderly
social and economical development of the country could be attained.
Emphasis was laid on the necessity of being given a fair day's pay for a fair day's
work and of giving a fair day's work fol the expected fair day's pay.
He showed how unity had secured for the Grenada Airfield workers the in-
crease of pay satisfactory to them. He then related the story of two servants in the
employ of a certain king who was about to abdicate in favour of his son:
The first to choose whatever she wanted was reminded by the King that the
other would get twice as much.
Without delay she asked that one of her arms be cut off.
Such worthless spirit of selfishness, Mr. Lawrence pointed out, had no place in
true trade unionism though it was obvious that there was a certain amount of
determination in some individuals to allow themselves to be carried away by it.
The General Secretary explained the meaning of"HoLD THE FORT FOR WE
ARE COMING" (which was sung after the D.T.U. Prayer) in light of the D .T.U,s
affiliation with ICFTU, C,C.L. and IFPAAW and the assistance which was
being received from these organizations.
He reminded workers that the executive Board was prepared to discuss and
receive the recommendations of their Branch or section in connection with the re.-
vision or renewal of the Agreement signed between the employer and the D.T.U.
on their behalf.
Mr. Jose ph the chairman of the rieetiug spoke inter alia of the decision of the
Court of Appeal relative to the dispute which had up to the present kept the
Portsmouth and Grand Bay Branches from functioning normally and constitution-
ally anat a certain stage invited members of the- au djice iO -riuLi cominga e
and to ask questions.
Comments were made by the Hon. Mr. Earl Leslie who felt that if he had
been a hostile Trade Union leader the request seeking permission to use the Market
Square could have been turned down, and that the invitation he received inz the
morning could have been extended earlier.
A few questions (replied to) were asked these include the following:
(1) Why has the delegate (who represented the Port Workers at Antigua
Seamen's Conference August last year) not visited the Portsmouth
Port-Workers to give an account of what transpired there?
(2) What has become of the old'Jeep.
After listeners had welcomed the idea of all members getting together to bring
about a realisation of the UNITY which the Organisation stands for, the meeting
was brought to a (lose at 6.15 p.m when the Trade Union Officers left for

Dr. William emphasised that his
country wanted to establish close relati, ns
with all countries of the Caribbean with
view to establishing a Caribbean
economic community, but added that in
the ease of a country like Cuba, this
would be extremely difficult.
If the Commonwealth is to change,"
he said, "we will seek to see that it
chauges for the better.We have already
served notice that we want to take par
in a discussion on Commonwealtn im
migration. We object to the present
policy on principle although it does not
affect many Trinidadians, but we regard
it as a form of inequality."
Dr. Williams was accompanied by
the High Commissioner for Trinidad
and Tobago, Sir Learie Constantine,
and Lady Costautine. (BIS)

Atlantic Air Crash
R. A, F. Directs SuccessTfl Air Sea Rescue
49 survivors from the Super Constellation airliner which came down in the
Atlantic 500 miles west of Ireland on Sunday night were on their way to Shannon
Airport, Ireland, on Monday afternoon following an intensive search and rescue
operation directed from the R. A. F. Rescue Co-ordination Centre at Plymouth.
This operation involved British and American aircraft, and ships from Swit-
zerland, Britain, Canada and the United States. It is the latest example of R.
A. F. co-operation in rescue work-a service which is automatically available to
all civilian aircraft, as well as to British and allied military aircraft.
Two rescue centres keep a 24-hour alert and know at any given moment the
whereabouts and readiness of rescue aircraft based at various stations round Britain.
At least one Shackleton aircraft, radio-equipped, is always standing ready to
take off. On Sunday the first one was airborne in 30 minutes with its crew fully
briefed. Another followed five minutes later.
Two Shackletons have been airborne continuously since the latest operation
began in the non-stop quest for survivors. (BIS)
A later cable states that sixteen Flying Tiger Airline crash victims are still
missing in the North Atlantic after forty nine survivors and eleven bodies were
picked out of the raging seas by the small Swiss freighter Celerina. (CP).
Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Boys and Girls,-I see that every-one is now back at school and all
look bright, gay and happy.
I can only guess that all had an enjoyable time-no early rising, no watching
of clocks, no bells to listen to and all text books packed away. What happy
times holidays are!
I suppose some of you from the town went to friends and relatives in the
country. There is a special magic in the country during the lovely August days.
It is a great pity that some town children who have no where to go to, could not
have camps organised for them, so that they too could enjoy some country life dur-
ing their holidays.
You know, we live in a beautiful island-full of the beautiful things of
nature-and you must learn to delight in and enjoy them.
How lovely to listen to birds 'chirping in the trees under your window in the
-*-eary- g "im gs -to cjuy-z a '~ 1 tiltum.a.coIui ftU at-- long- wai.Vl--w o-go-
fruit hunting for guavas, mangoes, cherries, sea-side grapes-all in season in Au-
gust,-to enjoy a meal of fresh vegetables and fish fresh from the sea,--to sit on a
porch in the evening and watch a full moon rise over the hills---to enjoy the full
spendour of a starry sky on a dark night--to sit on a sandy beach at sunset and
watch the sun, like a ball of fire dip below.the horizon.
Yes, you must learn to appreciate and enjoy the beauty you have around you.
Here is part of a little poem which you must learn. It is called "Leisure"
Mr. Lewis mentioned in an article.last week. It is by a Welsh Poet called Wil.
liam Davies, who died just 22 years ago.
(i) What is life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare,
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows
No time to see in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty's glance
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
A poor life this is, if full. of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
Cherio till next week.
Love from Auntie Fran.
This week's questions are a follows :
(r) Who wrote the Iocm "Leisure" ------- -
(2) In what country was the poet born?-----. ----

Spokesman, Mr. Samuel S. Joseph said the conference is one of a
Sworld-wide series covering over 188 countries and islands of the sea. "These
conferences", he said, "are particularly important in view of the ever in-
creasing threat of international Communism, and the program is designed
so that we can put on a united and courageous front against this menace."
"We need to be better equipped in the practical use of the Bible", Mr.
SJoseph said, "so that we cau help fortify the spiritual morale of the people
in our community, and the conference is arranged to accomplish this."
Mr. Joseph said. "We are very much concerned about peace and last-
Sing unity, and this will be achieved by and through God's Kingdom which
Swe all pray for in the 'Our Father Prayer.'
S "Just how this will come about will be pointed out by an official
speaker f -or dhe group on Sunday Oct. 7, at 5 p. m. We invite you to
hear his hour-long discourse on the striking subject, 'TAKE COUR-
I AGE-GOD'S KINGDOM IS AT HAND!', which comes as a cdmax
