Brilliant Opening of Ecumenical Council
A DAZZLING ARRAY of mitred prelates, the largest concourse of
its kind in ecclesiastical history, assembled around the white-
robed figure of Pope John at the opening of the Ecumenical
Council on October ii. Spectacularly devotional, the cardinals,
archbishops and bishops and some 2,700 pillars of the Chur-h
from all countries bowed their
heads while the Pope initiated
the first session of this vast reli-
gious gathering with an inspir-
ing prayer.. He wore a mitre
of white and gold, studded
with diamonds and a white
cape, strikingly visible against
the scarlet tapestries along the
nave. --Theie vere-:bontroO
churchmen and guests present
in St. Peier's Basilica, (includ-
ing Bishop Boghaert and Bishop
Bowers) and about 15o,ooo
persons were crammed into St.
Peter's Square. Bells rang,
trumpets sounded, thousands
worshipped, and in a specially
built gallery of St. Peter's stood
theologians and observers from
ot he r Christian Churches,
among whom was Dominica's
own Rev. Philip Potter, and
two observers from the Russian
Orthodox Church. This was
the 2zst Ecumenical Council
to be held in twenty centuries
Ignoring those who take a gloomy
view of mankind's destiny, Pope John
said that "divine providence is leading
us to a new order of human relations."
He stated that the Council was not
meeting to condemn errors but would
"use the medicine of mercy", seeking
to demonstrate the validity of Roman
Catholic teachings to meet present
day needs. The union of mankind
was a major concern of the Pope, who
declared next day in the Sistine chapel
that governments must make peace
or face an awful reckoning. He saw
the possibility of international harmony,
and called for greater efforts and nation-
al sacrifices, adding: "It is time some-
Andrew Abraham, owner-driver of
truck No.627 and his foot-boy, drove
into the Goodwill tarrish-pit, dismounted
and strolled away. A roar and a rumble
caused the startled pair to turn around-
before their eyes the truck disappeared,
buried under hundreds of tons of tarrish.
-Abra-ain ii nu. ti'-ar- r- rr-
livelihood; the truck a total uninsured
wreck even after being dug out by the
PWD traxcavator; and Abraham must
pay for the use of the G o v e r n m e n t
thing decisive was done.".
Michael Angelo's wonderful painting
of the Last Judgment was the backdrop
before which the Pope's throne was set
on the second day. Both hope and
warning were intermingled'in his ad-
dress, during which he spoke of a need
for "love for one another, brotherhood
and the end of strife between men of
different races and different mentalities."
Journalists in Audience
Pope John received in audience
last Saturday 1,ooo newspapermen, to
whom he said that the Catholic Church
has nothing to hide, exhorting the jour-
nalists at all times to publish the truth,
as distortion of truth is likely to cause
great harm to the world.
American television was able to pre-
sent scenes from the opening days of
the Ecumenical Council to viewers in
the United States, while radio broad-
casts of the Pope's opening prayer or
address came through firmly and clearly
to many countries including Dominica.
The Council is continuing its
deliberations, which will include changes
in the liturgy and probably both the
use of the vernacular instead of Latin
in services and the participation of the
laity in the Mass.
FOR WORLD HARMONY
United Nations Celebrates
On October 24, 1962, the world will take note of a great anniversary.
Since 1945, when the United Nations came into being, vast global changes have
taken place; but as Secretary-General U Thant of Burma says in his message
to youth, "Hunger, poverty and disease are still the daily lot of more than two-
thirds of mankind." This man, who bravely came forward to take over respon-
sibilities which had been shouldered by the late Dag Hammarskjold, who died
tragically in A fr i c a, adds signifi-
cantly: "Meanwhile, the heavy burden
of armaments continues to strain the
world's resources and place civilisation
itselfin peril ofnuclear destruction "
However, U Thant had a message of
optimism to give when he returned to
headquarters after visiting several Heads
of Governments. He said: "I do not

powers to launch aggression. I think
the matter is more psychological than

Commonwealth member states in this
area have joined the United Nations:

the U, N, buildings in New York and
Geneva. One day, when we have
achieved the collective nationhood for
which most of us hope, our flag will be
hoisted up too. In the meantime, we
are beneficiaries of many U. N. projects
communicated through subsidiary U. N.
bodies. Our people are healthier be-
cause of the work of WHO, and our
children have received UNICEF milk;
we have had the advise of numerous
experts in education and other fi e d s;
there is still a vast untapped fo u nt o.

The United Nations is an enormous
international family, with headquarters
in New York City and agencies through-
out the world in the Hague (Inter-
national Court of Justice,) G e n e v a,
Vienna, Rome, Paris, Montreal, Lon-
don, Addis Ababa, Santiago, Athens,
and other great cities. Vast sums of
money are spent by the United Nations
in the attempt to maintain peace through
security and to improve the general con-
dition of mankind by defeating poverty,
hunger, ignorance and disease.
"To live together in peace with one
another as good neighbours" was written
into the U. N. charter by its founding
fathers. We may as well admit that
unless we attain and maintain s u c b a
state of well-being, the world will per-
ish. One of the'great advantages of the
U. N. is that it keeps people ta i ki n g

at present working on the drafts of two
international covenants one on. civil
and political rights, the other on econo
mic, social and cultural rights. As
their first concern is with the h u m an
condition, they have not overlooked the
rights of women and, of children, which
have received special attention.
It would be wrong to regard U. N.
principles as the creation of dreamy ideal-
ists; today y they are more than ever a
compelling necessity. U.N. is not
just a skyscraper far away in New York
but a partnership of Governments affect-

peace, freedom, and a higher universal

Colonial Committee Report
The Special Committee of 17, on the implementation of the 1960 Declara-
tion on the Granting of Independence to Colonial Countries and Peoples ended
its present series oa .ntcings on 19 September by adopting its report to the seven-
teenth session of the General Assembly,
The report covers the work done by the Committee since its first meeting
held on 20 Fcoruary this year. During this period, it held 117 meetings, includ-
ing 19 meetings held in various cities in Africa, and examined the progress of
the implementation of the Declaration in 12 territories, of which II are in Africa
and were on the Committee's list of priorities. The 12th territory discussed was
The II African territories were: Southern Rhodesia, Northern Rhodesia,
Nyasaland, Basutoland, Bechuanaland, Swaziland, Mozambique, Angola, Kenya,
Zanzibar and South West Africa.
During its discussions on Southern Rhodesia, in New York, the Committee,
in April, also sent a Subcommittee to London for talks with the United King-
dom Government concerning that territory.
'The report contains the following conclusions or recommendations:
Kenya: The Special Committee adopted a resolution which would have the
General Assembly affirm the rght of the people of the territory to independence
and request the United Kingdom and "all concerned" to bring Kenya to inde-
pendence "at the earliest date."
Angola: The Committee recommended that the General Assembly condemn "the
colonial war pursued by Portugal against the Angolan people;" call on Portugal
to.desist forthwith from armed action and repressive measures against the people
of Angola; and request member states to deny Portugal any assistance that migh
be used for the "suppression of the people of Angola and, in particular, to termi-
nate the supply'of arms to Portugal."
Southern Rhodesia:. It noted that the Assembly has adopted a resolution request--
rig the administering power (United Kingdom) :"to undertake urgently the con-
vening 'of a constitutional conference' in. accordance \ith the terms of the reso-
lution previously adopted by the Special Committee. ,
Northern Rhodesia: It recommended to the Assembly that a date be fixed for the
yiyasaland: The report noted with regret that the administering power had not
yet taken steps to transfer all powers to the people of Nyasaland.
Basutoland, Beohuanaland and Swaziland: In a resolution the Committee called
for elections to be held in the' thfee territories on the basis of direct universal adult
Zanzibar: The Special Committee adopted a resolution which would have the
Assembly request the administering power (United Kindom) "to make every effort,
including the promotion of harmony and unity among the political elements of
Zanzibar, to bring that territory into independence at the earliest date."
British Guiana: A resolution was adopted requesting "the Government of the
United Kingdom and the Government of British Guiana to resume negotiations
immediately, with a view to reaching agreement on the date of independence for
British Guiana, in accordance with the wishes of the people of British Guiana."
Mozambique: The Committee adopted a r e s o lut io n, which would have the
Assembly call on Portugal to "desist forthwith from armed action and represeive
measures against the people of Mozambique "; and request member states to deny
SPortugal any assistance that might be used for the suppressionn of the people of

Address By Minister Of Labour &
Dominica Grammar School
Speech Day 5.10.62
I wish first of all to congratulate the Headmaster, his staff, and his boys on
their being able to resurrect Speech Day at the Dominica Grammar School. It
is actually four years since parents, the public, and the School have had such an
important function as a Speech Day. And we all hope that Speech Day will
be an annual feature of the Dominica Grammar School from henceforth. I wish
secondly to thank the T eadmaster for his comprehensive report despite the fact that
he is hardly 6 months at the Dominica Grammar School. I must also congratu-
late the boys who have earned prizes and certificates. And thank you, boys and staff
for entertaining us to-night.
A Minister must always make important announcements on an occasion like
this. Work is continuing satisfactorily at the new Dominica Grammar S c h o o 1
building. One section, the Hostel, is almost complete. This will give reasonable
quarters to boys from remote villages so that studies can be b e t t e r done and the
health and well-being of the boys improved and maintained. A master will live
on the premises. We sincerely hope that parents are preparing to take advantage
of the facilities of a good hostel under Government control.
The Headmaster has already told you of the improvement in the quality of
the staff: Four graduates, -2 science teachers and 2 arts within 15 months is good
going and the Government hopes to keep this up.
The Technical Wing which will later be officially declared open is gathering
momentum. The St. Lucia Supervisor will come to Dominica for the official
opening. But I have had a very favourable reply from Mr. Jones, T e c h n i c a 1
Advisor to the Right Honourable the Secretary- of State, that a Technical Super-
visor will be appointed, as early as possible. This-is good news. Mr. Bernard
Yankey is earmarked to teach Agriculture at thd;- Technical vvng. He has been
only lent to act Agicuitural Superintendent until this vacancy is filled. Mr. Benoit
Laville is now in the Un.re3iai-es f A-Amernca on a one year cote- -L.ab
roiy work at the Agriciltural section of the Technical Wing. The Tichnical
Wing is open to boys of Secondary and Primary Schools. By January next the
full complement of boys to receive this important instruction and training will' be
established. When the Technical Supervisor is a p p o i n t e d there will be
evening classes for post primary youths. We need people who have a sound back-
ground in their craft. And we sincerely hope our youths and adults will rot he
too shy to make up for what is lost in their education. We are never too old to
learn. Provision is being made for land nearby where boys s p e c i a i z n g in
Agriculture will do practical work. I think Dominica owes a great deal of thanks
to the United States Government for making technical education available to our
youths. Dominica is fortunate in having the U n i v e r s i t y of the Weet Indies
represented here in the person of Dr. E Ii z a b e t h Mueller. She is an ec-prt in
Education and Modern Languages and Teachers in both primary and secondary
schools as well as youths and adults should get as much as possible out of the se,
vice she is rendering us.
Mr. Foubister, a graduate of a Canadian University,is here with his family
for a year to bolster up the teaching of Maths in both primary and secondary
schools. He also takes an evening class or two in mathematics for craftsmen and
commercial clerks. We thank both Dr. Mueller and Mr. Foubister for the service
they are rendering to education in Dominica. The best way to express our ap
preciation is to take every opportunity to improve out education.
April 1964 will be the four hundredth anniversary of the birth of William
Shakespeare, and the whole civilised world is preparing to mark the occasion in a
fitting manner. With the completion of our new Dominica Grammar School this
will be an opportunity to join other places in honouring the greatest dramatist in
world history. Efforts are being made to made to complete the auditorium before
April 1964 and to make the necessary preparations for a -big Drama and Music
Festival. The British Couucil has promised liberal assistance, and the University
of the West Indies will be only too willing to guide and assist us in this ambitious
project. We hope to attact people from neighboring islands. By saying all this
we are giving timely notice to our dramatic and musical artists.
I wish on this occasion to invite attention to one factor in education. I shall
be speaking mainly to parents, and the public. Education is becoming more complex
owing to the manifold changes taking placein modern society. Children a.e
taught by many teachers. Nature is the child's first teacher. There is the hom-:,
there is the School, there is the church, and there are other organizations all teaching
But the best environment is-a teacher whom all of us are prone to overlook, The
greatest teacher in the life of the child is environment.
SYou cannot teach music or any other art by reading about it. Music is
best taught by giving children a chance to listen to music, to make music and to
compose music. The children who speak good English are those who come
from homes where good English is spoken. And it has been said that the best
environment for our children is one made up of a great many type, of individuals.
The children of a sea captain, an air pilot, a doctor, a school teacher, a business
man, an agriculturist, a motor mechanic, a seamstress and so on, bring each a
contribution which makes for a rich environment because it is full ofv-arying
experiences. It is a good thing, too, when a community is made up of several
racial groups with different religious backgrounds, especially when their fathers
are engaged in widely differing occupations. It is this great mixing which gives
school life its flavour and makes tolerance so vitally important as an ingredient in
the democratic education of youth.
But a community must be careful to see that no "deplorable behaviour" is
exhibited before children and youths. I refer to what took place on two occasions
in this very hall which the Dominica Chronicle recently referred to as "deplorable
behaviour." The street as part of the child's environment is already doing much
harm. We may not like this or that individual for various reasons. But we can-
not at social gatherings arrogate to ourselves the right to set a bad example before
children, who, for good or for ill, are greatly influenced by what we older folks do.
We are highly blameable if we put stumbling blocks in the way of our children,
We do it unconsciously. Our passions of hate and dislike outrun our better
judgement. But certainly we reap what we sow. "Evil communications corrupt
good manners." Reading one of the Y. C. W. Bulletins, I came across an cdi
trial on the theme: "Am I my Brother's Keeper?" Cain tried to brush the answer
aside. Ever since, it has been increasingly true that we are our bother's keeper, and
that we can hurt others, not only physically but morally, by what we say and do
in society. If we are our brother's keeper still more so are we responsible for the
children we brought into this world. And it is our solemn and bounden duty
not to place any stumbling block in their way.
The children and youths are our most precious assets. As Minister of Edu-
cation I consider it my solemn duty to denounce any conduct which is bound to do
harm to the Social education of children in this community. And I hope parents
will pay particular attention to certain points of discipline in the Headmaster's Report.
Education is not getting children prepared for social prestige; still less is it a preparation
just for a good job, even though the Government is very concerned about the
employment of youth after school days are done. It is here that technical education
will assuredly help to solve the problem of unemployment, Education,
boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen' is: (i) What you know; this is impor-
tant, (ii) what you can do; which is more important, and (iii) infinitely

The Conflict With Socialism
By William Pickles
Since there seems to be some confusion (often deliberately fostered by the
enemies of progress) in the minds of many Dominicans between Socialism and

The Conflict with Socialism
One often hears it said, especially by people who know very little about either,
that there is no difference between Socialism and Communism. Scarcely any
Socialist would agree with this view, and Communists only agree with it for about
half the time. I am a Socialist, and I regard Communism as beinj, along wah
Fascism (with which it has a great deal in common), the most execrable of all poli-
Communists regard Socialists as their worst enemies, but they do not always
say so. It is ofter convenient for Communists to encourage confusion between the
two creeds for they don't want people who are beginning to reject one of the more
co servative and Right-wing doctrines to turn to Socialism or to a Party, but rather
to, go right over to Communism. It is partly to perpetuate this confusion of mean-
Sings that Communists;ofter refer to the Soviet .Uni6n as a "Socialist".couintry and
to their doctrine arid-practices as 'Socialism.." .At. all other.tmes, they describe
Socialist as "lackeys of capit.lism ', "agents of Fascismn," ,"lubricious vipers" or
'some similar term.
It is true that there was a period of history-the 183o's and i84o's-when
S a). I [V .' r ,: ,,,.n;.M ,,W,9. lmn i'ntprchan-, -,l, terms Tn so far as they
were not interchangeable, the difference between them was that Communists wanted
to abolish all private property, while Socialists did not. Then, in 1847, Marx
and Engels, the founders of modern Communism, borrowed the word to describe
their particular belief, which at other times they. called "scientific Socialism," as
opposed to what th;y called "Utopian Socialism."-
Socialism an Ideal
The b.,sic difference between Utopian Socialism on the one hand, and Com-
munism, or Scientific Socialism, on the other, was a simple one. The so-called
"Utopian" Socialists saw Socialism as an ideal-sometimes a pait of the Christian
idea which could be achieved only if enough people were per uadcd to believe
in it, to work for it, and to adapt their minds and characters to it. It required
bo:n a change in institutions and changes in men's attitudes to each ether. "Scien-
tific" Socialism, on the other hand, saw Socialism as the tinal term of an inevitable
historical process, of which a violent revolution was to be the last stage but two,
followed by a period of "dictatorship of the proletariat", which was in tuin to give
woy to a sort ofmillenium, in which there would be no "government" at all, but
only "the administration of things", in accordance with known natural laws.
This "scientific" doctrine is still part of Communist theo y, and for a long
time was accepted also by those who called themselves Marxist Socialists. But
just before the end of the last century, many Socialists began to feel doubts about
the "scientific" doctrine, and these doubts spread as society developed more and
more on lines different from those prophesied by Marx. What, however, led to the
final and complete break between Marxian Communists and Socialists was the
interpretation given to Marxism in Russia after the Communist Revolution, and
then by all Communist Parties elsewhere until the death of Stalin. The "dictator-
ship of the proletariat" became first the dictatorship of the Communist Party, and
then the dictatorship of one man, ruling with the aid of secret police, of torture and
of mass assassination, and imposing his views on every subject, from religion
through biology down to philology, on every individual Communist throughout
Belief in Freedom
No Socialist can accept either this method of government, or the intellectual
dictatorship which it has always involved. On the contrary, Socialism believes in
freedom-- freedom to choose one's government and freedom to think as one's mind
and conscience dictate. "Communism" is what the Soviet dictator of any given
moment says it is: Socialism is what every individual Socialist thinks it is.
We do not believe that Socialism can be imposed upon a people which does
not want it. It cannot be imposed by a foreign country, as the USSR imposes
Commuimism on others, or by a band-of revolutionaries at home. It cannot even
be imposed by democratic processes, for it can work, if it works at all, only with
the willing cooperation of something much more than a simple numerical majority

can only be a system to which the people ofe ch country finds its way slowly, in
accordance with its own temperament and material conditions, rejecting whatever
experience shows to be unworkable, or unsatisfactory in its consequences, or
unsuited to that particular people, and trying again by other ways. One of the
first Socialists to break with Marxism, the great Cerman Soc:alist Edward Berr-
stein, went even further along this empiricist road. "I cannot believe in a final
goal of Socialism", he wrote, "but I strongly believe in the Socialist movement,
in the forward march of the working-class, which must work out its own salvation,
step by step, by changing society from the domain of a commercial, land-owning
oligarchy into a real democracy, guided by the interests of all those who work and

there will be a United States of the Caribbean in which the vari-

TOWN COUNCIL ELECTION: I
The Roseau Town Council election, which takes place on
October 30, is important. If we are not careful how we place
our votes in this election, Roseau, which should be a p r o u d
Capital City, may well become like this-
Desolate are the streets. Desolate is the city.

Those lines warn us of what might happen if an epidemic should
strike us (fostered and festered by the filth lying in our gutters anc
the carelessness of our sanitary arrangements).
There is also the question of v e r b a 1 contamination. The
dirt in the streets can be rivalled by the dubious language of som.
of the contestants or would-be contestants. At the time of going
to press, the full list of nominations is not k n o w n by us but a
certain amount of canvassing has been taking place, either openly
or overtly. This newspaper, in the first of two editorials on the
subject, can only counsel voters generally at this stage as to what
sort of candidates they should avoid. We shall be more precise
Firstly, we would advise our voters and readers not to sup-
port the reinstatement or introduction into the Council of any-
body who has, by intemperate and unkind utterances, slandered
or maligned his fellow h u m a n beings, whoever they may be.
Remember that such a person may turn against you, the voters,
after election, and what redress would you have save in the Courts
In the-second place, as Dominica is a small island and every-
body knows (or thinks he knows) virtually everybody else, con-
sider most carefully the characters of the candidates. Are they
Party men and women. If so, how have they treated the mem-
bers of their own Party, or even of their own families, This will
give you a clue as to their reliability; you can g u e s s how they
may treat you and the interests of Roseau as a whole. If, for
instance, a candidate has been ungrateful to a benefactor and
friend, will he be grateful to you for your votes, or just use it as
a stepping stone?
The HERALD does not advise the placement of more than
one member of the same family, closely related (such as husband,
wife, brother), on so limited a body as the Town Council. An
individual misjudgment, when it comes to taking decisions, is
bad enough, but a familial or collective misjudgment wonld be,

the masses". Measure your candidates, including the retiring
Mayor, against these words.
It would have been simpler and briefer to have recommend-

and instability of some Labour members who evidently do not
live up to the Christian principles of democratic socialism.

Seminar on productivity: Five Lectures, Edited by G.E. Eaton- Institute
of Social and Economic Research, U.W.I., Jamaica (8 shillings). This seminar,
which took place during three evenings last June, attracted an enormous amount
of interest 60 to 70 persons attending e a.c h night, so that four discussion
groups had to be formed.
The five lectures are set out in mimeographed form in the o r d e r that they
were given. The first, by, Dr. G. E. Cumper, sets forth to define the term "Pro-
ductivtiy". In its simplest concept it can be defined "as the relation b e t w e e n
what one pants into a process and what one gets out of it, measured in some stand-
ard terms.' This is vague enough to need further clarification, particularly as the
terms would vary as between the private and the public sector of an economy, the
individual and the state, a military operation and a University (and he takes the
U. W. I. as an example, showing how the factors for measurement can be con-
fused if improperly analysed).
Dr. Cumper, in stressing the problems of efficiency in Jamaica today, states
"For we are only just reaching the stage at which the public is beginning seri-
ously to question the position of private business, and at which business needs to
be able to say not merely 'We are selling what the public wants and making a
profit', but to be able to demonstrate that it is doing this while paying adequate
wages, taking no more p r o fi t s than is reasonable and operating at a technical
efficiency as great as that of potential competitors overseas or as could be obtained
by some form of control or nationalisation." As an example of productivity cost-
ing he takes a "rural bus business" anyone who should purchase the assets of
the Dominica Transport Co. Ltd. should read this first.
After elaborating on the semantics of productivity, Dr. Cumpcr goes on to
point out that in Jamaica (and the same applies to elsewhere in the West Indies)
management should be content with labour-intensive pioduct'on, since in terms
of capital or skilled labour, unskilled labour is cheap. This does not necessarily
apply in Dominica, since unskilled labaur is scarce (but the law of supply and de-
mand has still not raised the wage rate). The last statement, however, is not a
scientific one,, since, as in Jamaic.a "Unfortunately we have hardly any of tha data

too much old-fashioned emphasis on th: "Jdcisphne ot l tu. and the humanities to-

from a purely agrarian economy to one w,th a st:onj basis of mining and industry.
Formally "a handful of highly skilled men and an army of labourers, often illiter-
ate could keep an agrarian economy going, although the labouring classes subsisted
at a low standard of living."
He ends up by saying "But to improve our standard of living, we must increase
our productivity .. . The 'hard-handed men of Athens' may- support an
agrarian economy. ... but the better life can only be achieve by the fullest develop-
ment of aptitudes, both intellectual and technical."

He says there is no easy answer to the
entangled problem of world agricultural
production. The two main aspects
which pariculaily affected the under-
developed countries were the inadequate
yields of indigenous agriculture and the
waste of labour involved in primitive
Mr. Lloyd-Jacob suggests three basic
remedies for this situation: Education in
improved techniques: irrigation: and the
use of fertilisers and pesticides. When
agriculture lost workers to industry, he
suggests a fo u r t h requirement --

time were now available, swifi and dra-

supplies were already adequate..
"Fertiliser raw materials 'are virtually
unlimited", writes Mi. Llyd-Jacob.
"There is:a world surplus at theimom-
.ent, but consumption is growing rapidly,
particularly in the already developed
countries, and production capacity is
continually being increased. It is unlike-
lythat a foreseeable level of demand
would be difficult to satisfy."
The under-developed count ies would
need a great deal of assistance from the
developed countries to meet a probably
expenditure of roo.oco,ooo (WI$48o,-

o000,00) per year, but its showed, howiv:r,
that the world could afford to feed it
population if it really set its mind to it.
"Almost any under-developed coun-
try could double its food production
with sufficient use of fertilisers and the
yields obtained in advanced agriculture
in Europe, if available all over the
world, would take care of any rise in
population for a very long time" con-
cludes the writer. (B.I.S.)

On someone else; of him, poor foolish fellow,
Not a scrap is left, not even his name.
Indescribable- being neither thli nor that,
Uncountable- being any number,
Unreal-being anything but what they are,
And ugly customers for somecoi to encounter,
It is our fault entirely if we do:
They cannot touch us; it is we who % ill touch them.
Curious from wantonness- to see % hat they are like,
Cruel from fear- to put a stop to them,
Incredulous from conceit- to prove they cannot be,
We stroke or kick or measure and are lost:
The stronger we are the sooner all is over;
It is our strength with which they gobble us up.
If someone being chaste, brave, humble,
Get by them safely, he is still in danger,
With pity remembering what once they were,
Of turning back to help them. Don't.
What they were once was what they would not be,
Not liking what they are not is what now they are.
No one can help them; walk on, keep on walking,
And do not let your goodness self-deceive you:
It is good that they are, but not that they are thus.

Caribbean Nurses Conference Here
Preparations are going ahead for the Third Biennial Conference of the Carib-
bean Nurses' Organisation, which is to be held from October z9th to November
3rd at the New T.B Block, Princess Margaret Hospital. About50o nurses, re-
presenting 24 territories in the Caribbean are expected to attend.' There will be
special services held in the Anglican, Methodist and Ronran Catholic Chuch es
on Sunday 28th October at 7 a.m., and the prayers of the public are asked for
the success and fruitful outcome of the conference.
Thc^conference will beo A opn ar
on Monday, 29th instant, tinder the distinguished -Chairmanship of H.H, the
Administrator. The Hon. Minister for' Labour and Social Services will deliver
the Opening Address,: and the delegates will be -officially welcomed by Miss D.
M. Harrison, President of the Dominica Nurses' Association. Following the cer-
emony, the visitors will be entertained at a Punch Party, kindly being held for,
them by H. H. the Administrator and Mrs Lovelace.
The theme of the conference will be "The Nurse as an Educator". During
the week, talks and discussions will be held with the object of putting foith ideas,
and putting into practice various projects which will enable the Nurse to help
educate the general public in the principles of hygiene, diet, care of children, and
the preservation of general good health.
It is hoped, also that a plan may be set in motion, enabling nurses trained in
Dominica to be given further training in one of the other territories, thus opening
up opportunities for better nursing education and qualifications for nurses trained
here. With such opportunities in view, it may be then possible to obtain for
training in Dominica, more and better educated candidates, thus relieving the acute
shortage of suitable trainees, which is at the moment causing such grave concern to
the Medical Authorities in the Island.
The Dominica Nurses' Association is deeply appreciative of members of the
general public who have responded so generously to appeals made to them for help
in pr paring for the Confesence.

International Credit Unions
I. C, U. Day- October 18
International Credit Union is fundamentally a self-help movement, a move-
ment towards thrift without deprivation, and it has taken hold of the imagination
of the West Indian people. In Dominica, Credit Union is Io years old, and
at the end of 1961 had $702,875 share capital, loans of nearly two million dol-
lar3 having been granted up to that date.
Wherever the movement thrives, you find small business people obtaining
help for worthy enterprises even if economic development lags; the strall man
is helped to get credit at reasonable rates. The movement was first a rural one,
gravitating towards the cities. Credit Unions are a sub-division of the larger
concept of co-operation.
In 1945 the first West Indian Credit Union was founded in Jamaica and
in 1945 Trinidad & Tobago passed a Credit Unions Ordinance. In 1951 a
Trinidad Confederation of C. U. S. followed by a Barbadian seminar in 1959,
helped further to build the movement. Jamaica now has nearly Ioo credit un-
ions, Dominica has 19, Trinidad & Tobago 264 branches, and Antigua six.
Among the aims of credit union bodies art to carry on a society on a strictly
co-operative basis whose objects are the promotion of thrif among its members
only at legitimate iates of interest, exclusively for provident or productive pur-
We print below some points made by the Dominica Minister of Trade
and Production, Hon. N. A. N. Ducreay, in a broadcast speech to celebrate
International Credit Union day,
Credit Union "has indicated in a very positive manner how people can by
their combined efforts contribute to the solution of some of their problems. What
is essentially important about your organization is that it is founded upon the
golden principles of democracy which is in fact the pillar of our freedom.
"It is necessary for me to inform you that Government is prepared to assist
your Credit Union Movement in every possible way. ..
"It is my earnest hope to see your organizationgrow from s t r e n g t h to

"Keep up this wonderful spirit of co-operation which -has made your or-
ganization so successful. I .. .send my sincere greetings and best wishes to
all the Credit 'Unionists in every, part of Dominica."
Riot In Belgium
Brussels, Oct. 14 CP.---Thousands of Flemish and French-speaking Wal-
loous rioted in downtown Brussels in a new outbreak of i a n u a g e and race
rivalry. About 50,000 Flemish from the north staged a protest mnaic against
"subjugation" by the balloons. Eleven people were injured as crowds p-lted each
other with rotten eggs and ripe tomatoes.

Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Boys & Girls, --Sometime ago we spoke about a Blood Bank. Today
we shall speak about an Eye Bank.
Tilus is another of the wonderful advances that has been made in medicine
within recent years. You know what it means when we say someone is blind;
well the Americans with the help of science are solving this great physical handi-
cap that has plagued man throughout the ages,
The Head-quarters of the Eye Bank is situated in New York City. This
is how it works: When a donor dies the Eye Bank is notified at once by the
attending doctor or a relative. Then the Bank takes over. Eyes do not deterio-
rate until a few hours after death and they can be kept in refrigeration and used up
to 48 hours after. An operation called "Enucleation" is performed by a surgeon
on the donor for the removal of the eyes. It is so well performed that it leaves
no facial disfigurement.
The eyes are then placed in a pair of refrigerated cotton-filled glass
containers. While the operation is taking place the Eye-Bank arranges for
transportation by the fastest means. All air-lines and the Red Cross co-operate
in the transportation. When the eyes reach the laboratory, they are examined to
s:e that they are healthy.
Patients awaiting transplants are then notified and the containers are placed
aboard an airline and are at the surgeon's disposal in a matter of hours. Only
one eye can be operated on at a time, so two different persons receive the eyes of
one dead person. The Bank reports that these operations are 90% successful and
patients regain their sight after a stay of about 1 weeks in hospital.
Since 1944 when the Eye Bank was established over 9,000 men, women and
children have regain their sight.
Neither age not the cause of death has any bearing on the usefulness of the
One thing is important. The eye must not be willed. Wills take long
to probate. Instead a form is filled up by a donor and he carries this card on his
person always. You knows wha it is when one cannot see! Isn't it a wonder-
ful thing that an operation can now restore sightl

church, Rockaway and Phoenix-so
runs the list of burglaries or attempted
burglaries in the last few months.
Several arrests have already been made
and it seems that more may be to come.
The third attempt on Rockaway was
so successful that Mr. Hiram Williams
says that he may be forced to close this
well-known resort. Eight hundred
dollars worth of drinks, cigarettes and
provisions were stolen-all apparently
by the light of matches, to judge from
the number of dead match ends on the
floor. Even cutlery, glasses, plates and
hand-towels were stolen, as well as the
contents of a well-stocked deep-freeze:
the only thing that was not taken was
the juke-box and an attempt had been
made to force that to get out the money.
Three days later, last Thursday,
thieves broke into the Phoenix store by
sawing through the office-door padlock.
The constable on the beat, observing
the door open, investigated and managed
to hold one of the thieves. The second
man escaped and, hotly pursued by the
police, took to the water near the Po;t
Office. Later a man know as "Maca-
que" was detained in Newtown, his
clothes still wet with salt water.
Caribbean Organization Welcomes
Welcoming the interest shown by the Government of Jamaica and St. Vin-
cent in Membership of the Caribbean Organization, the Caribbean Council at its
Third Meeting which ended in Paramaribo last week, invited the states and terri-
tories which formerly formed part of the Federation of the West Indies to become
Members of the Organization and, if they so desire, extended to them all the neces-
sary constitutional formalities for their admission as Members.
The Council agreed upon a formula of percentage budget contribution to apply
initially to these countries should they, as it was hoped, become Members of the
The 5-day meeting was attended by delegates from seven Member Govern-
ments, by a representative from the Government of St. Vincent, and by observers
rom the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland, and the United States of America. An observer from the
Dominica Republic invited with the unanimous approval of the Organization's
Members and the Signatory Powers was alo in attendance. The Council adopted
the Budget for 1963 which was somewhat less than the current year's. Noting
with satisfaction that the Clearing House for Trade and Tourism Information started
its operation, it made budgetary provision for the operation of this Clearing House
in 1963. The Council expressed its hope that this service of the Secreta.iat will be
fully used by business circles and Governmeut Departments with a view to increas-
ing intra-Caribbean Tade.
The Council approved a work programme for the Organization which includ-
ed inter alia:
i. a study of the area's need for long-term loan financing with a view to the
possible establishment of a Caribbean Development Bank, and a Caribbean
