The D. U. P. P. And Mrs. Allfrey i
I A Statement
It has come to my knowledge that certain persons in Dominica, some of
them members of the Labour Party, and in particular the Hon. Earl Leslie of
Portsmouth, have made both private and public declarations thai "Mrs.
Allfrey has joined the D. U. P. P." or equivalent remarks.
In denying these untrue allegations absolutely, I would add the follow -
ing. I am not now a member ofany political Party, not even, alas, of the
one I founded, although the founder-creator of a Party is usually A life-
member. I have never even considered joining the D. U. P. P., nor have I
been invited so to do, nor have I ever in all my life negotiated with any mem-
ber thereof toward this end.
There are civilised members of the D. U. P. P. who (have shown
Sympathy over my unwarranted expulsion, for which I am appropriately
grateful. It may well be that ftiy expulsion caused some rejoicirg in the
D. U. P. P. camp, since it certainly helped them to win the Town Council
election; it may even be a fact that some members of the D. U. P. P. unwitt-
ingly or otherwise exacerbated strained relations between me and members of
the Labour Party executive.
Will the public please take.notice that I am not attached to either of
the two existent Dominican political parties. Any person who declares' be-
I fore witnesses or otherwise publishes any false or defamatory statement affecting
Smy career either as politician, editor or'author will be proceeded against.

Science And Hunger -- Knowledge
Ready To Be Applied
Dennis Weaver formerly of the "News
Science and technology can already provide means to solve, until the end
of the century, the problem of feeding the fast-increasing population of the
world, half of it already underfed. Yet for this, as for other urgent and related
questions, the remedy cannot be effective until it is applied.
The task of applying it is the responsibility not bf science, but of governments
and their sociological and political instruments. But s c i e nt i sts are naturally
deeply concerned that the knowledge that science can brine towards solving the
problems of hunger and malnutrition shall be app Ii e d and they give much
thoughtt to this question. It has received great attention at the annual meetings
of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, one of whose chief ,
'aims is to promote a better general understanding of the significance of scientific
r.'search aid its impact, through its applications, on society
The theme was again a leading one at the recent meeting of the B r i t i s h
Association in Manchester, E n gl a n d, and Earl de la Warr, chairman of the
United Kingdom Freedom From Hunger Campaign, d e v o t e d his presidential
address to the. Agriculture Section to a survey of the means by which exist i n g
knowledge could be applied.
First Point Of Attack
The two twin factors of hunger and population' plo th conirnui' "prob-
ably the greatest challenge not only to our instinct of humanity but to w o6r I d
stability," said Earl de Ia Warr. Recalling current cinmjtes that half the pre-
sent world population of 3,000,000,000 ih dcthir hungry or badly nourished and
that the population is likely to be c.,ooo,o.,o,uoo by ihe year 2,ooo. he stressed
what he termed the good side of the picture.
The basis of this was the statement of Sir John Russell, the ncted a_,ricul-
cultural scientist, in the preface to a B r i i s h Association symposiurhmin 1'..o,
"'H-lDer-n fanitb4' a a rre.te." h-._ '- .-.Jar"e')a- uL,-" n. 'r Jz.r.-._ la',-rhv. e
next 40 years if-- but only if--present knowledge is fully applied. ThI~ r
was no reason why further increases in knowledge should not keep pace with
future increasesin population, so thai further r e s e a r c h, said Earl de la War,
though vitally needed, was not the intminmi;l problem. The first point of attack
must be education not merely technical insruLtion ,but also general education
that increases the demand for and the capacity to uwc, technical advice.
What Could Be Done Now
This knowledge could be listed under a number of heads:
(1) Few under-developed countries; could pro IdJ 'c a, long series of good
crops without the addition if plant food, including major nutrli-s.
The effect of even moderate dressing of the latter on rice and wheat in
China, and millet and groundnuts in Northern Nigeria, had been irm-
(2) Soil chemists and physicists could advise not only on the use 'of'
water forirrigation and location of underground sour cc out, also
on the dangers of excessive irrigation, producing waterlogging or
accumulation of salts or risking rein:roduciion of the malarial mosquito.
(3) Technologists could 'offer new crops or crop varieties, giving
higher yields or strains .adapted to climatic and' seasonal variations.
(4) Organic chemists and plant pathologists had made chemical' means
available to kill weeds, clear bush and apply fungicides and fumigants
to seeds and crops before and after sowing. Expenditure of between
threepence and one shilling and, sixpence per acre' (0.40 hectare)
on cereals and groundnuts had resulted in an increased yield of between
20 to 30 per cent in Ghana.
(5) Machinery and plant had transformed the labour position on farms, in
advanced,countries and were beginning to affect those less-developed by
tackling bush clearing, drainage, levelling and embankment work earlier
impracticable. Simple tools, howe ver,. were more needed than com-,
plicated machinery in some areas.
(6) Artific'al feeding of protein concentrates, sometimes with vitamin, trace
elements and hormone additives, could help in the 'conservation oF-na-
tive cattle species during hunger periods. I Some animal diseases could
be cured by adding small quantities of cobalt or other trace elements.
(7) Vaccines, medicines arid diagnostic tests had .virtually wiped out some
major animal diseases and the work ofveteriiarians had opened up former
ly uninhabitable areas by elimino.ing the tserse fly and other pests. Work
had been done on cattle fertility but results were sd far inconclusive.
(8) Successful attempts had been made to combine cattle qualities making
for prosperity in unpromising tropical and sub-tropical areas and
useful cross-breeding had also been carried out.
(9) The annual world output of 37,000,000 to of o fsh, o"whicn 30,000,000
tons is used for human. consumption, could be increased by one-half
without endangering the stocks.
Need For Education
Earl de la Wart said that shortage of food was far from being the only pro-
blem. The use of food resources was important. Malnutrition often arose from
ignorance and superstition leading to m i s u s e or non-use of valuable sources of
nourishment. Earl de la Warr stressed that existing research also offered promis-
ing further additions to the body of scientific knowledge. Among these were de-
velopment of rotation husbandry, micro-biology applied to tropical legumes, systema-
tic use of fungicides, means ofreducing evaporation, removal of salt from brackish
water, and cloud physics leading to means of inducing rainfall artificially.
All this knowledge, existing or prospective, could help however, only if appl-
ied.in perspective. The farmer must see and be told of every link in the chain
and know that omission of any one link might cancel out all or most of the ben-
fits he hoped to obtain from the others.
One point was clear. The problem of malnutriton and hunger could not
belsolved from the outside. All that outsiders could do was to to help those who
wanted to be helped and the establishment of institutions for the training of indige-
nous advisers was a first task.
At the top of the immediate requirement list was development of Farm In-
stitutes, turning out Advisory or Education Officers with technical training--if
possible men -whose boots if they wear them, still have mud on them" -to play
their part in demonstrating better methods. The United Natibns /International
Children' Fund had helped by encouraging school gardens and teaching children
not only to grow things, but what to grow, so preparing them for later specialist
training in Farm Institutes,and Farm Schools,
Rural'Community Centres were also admirable channels for, the spread of know-
lege and the co-operative movement. This had' worked successfully in Uganda
for both cotton and'coffee. Prizes offered to villages or districts had also proved
effective. Earl de la Warr recommended, the value of demonstration farms and
television and radio programmes in primitive areas.
In coichiusion he said that h' felt that the use of food surpluses of the West
to relieve shortages was not the solution. *Our task", he said, "is not salve to our
consciences by giving away surpluses when it suits us, but to help people to help

ROSEAU, SATURDAY NOVEMBER I, 1962
A VISIT FROM FRIENDS
THE appearance in our waters of Her Netherlands Majesty's Ship
Van Ewijck was a good and kindly omen. The warship
was on her way to St. Martin, and dropped anchor to show
pominica an unusual courtesy since nobody can remember
how long ago (if ever) a similar call had been paid. The Dutch
sailors challenged our footballers in Windsor Park; sailors and
West Indiahs speak the common language of sportsmanship, and
it was a happy match.
The conference to which this vessel of war, on an errand of
good will, was cruising is a most important one for our neigh-
bours the Dutch West Indians. Twenty Netherlands Ambassa-
dors (17 from Latin America and' three from Central America)
as well at The Prime Ministers of Surilamand the Netherlands
Antilles, will meet there the Foreign Minister of Holland, draw-
ing together their tripartite kingdom in consultation. The Secre-
tary of the Netherlands Embassy in Trinidad came to Domini-
;ca in preparation for the naval visit here, but has hurried back
to relieve his Amibassador, who is also attending the conference.
Although in the Far Eas the Dutch c ooniai Empire was
the victim of serious strife and loss, in ihese waters Holland's
record has been a fair one. The people inhabiting Dutch Carib--
bean possessions :have prospered so much so that many of our
town citizens have in the past gone to Curacoi and Aruba seek-
ing work, and we know of children of Dominican parents who
are now attending high school in Holland.
Meanwhile, this week all Netherland3 communities are over-
cast by the shadow of Queen-Mother Wilhelmina's death at the
age, of 82. A wise and firm Queen during her 50 year reign,
she brought up her daughter Queen Juliana as t worthy, descend
ant of the House of Orange: both of them showed courage and
fortitude in the face of dangers and reverses. The future Que:n
of Holland, Princess Beatrix, will doubtless also show the world
how well a woman can rule. Queen Vilhemina was an exam-
,ple to all members of the so called weaker sex. We regret her
Once in a while every Government takes action w h i c h is
bound to find favour with even the most critical members of the
community. Tree-planting week is a perfect example of this.
Do not expect the HERALD to quote from that hackneyed poem
'Trees', which has become an international bromide. We pre-,
Carrying precious freight, the noble trees.
Proud of their leafy weight, bow in the breeze.
Coming into heavily-forested Dominica by aerial transport,
nobody could imagine why we would want to plant any more
trees, until they walk the hot midday streets ofRoseau, Portsmouth
and denuded outlying villages. Sizzling heads and bodies long
for a patch of green shade. In Roseau we have two friends who
share a breadfruit tree between their houses, thus achieving cool-
ness and sustenance. Flowering trees, fruit trees, shade trees-
our towns and habitations have need of them all, not only for
utility but for beauty.
We know remarkably little about our own trees, and if a
tourist asks a schoolchild "'what is that tree?" -- he is likely to
get the reply: "it make a pink flower." Tree-planting w e e k
may inspire us all with a greater respect for trees, so that we may
learn their names, how to treat them as friends and allies (how
many people falling down ravines would have lost their i v e s
save for the supreme tenacity of Dominican trees?), how to space
them properly so that they may grow to delight us, and why it
is important not to lay waste our wooded areas to become the
prey of soil erosion.
We know of a Dominican abroad who, forced to inhabit a
luxurious but treeless yard for a few years, feverishly set to work
to plant trees and shrubs. While packing a little rich country
mud into a crack near the verandah, this fortunate exile unwit-
tingly planted a seed of the great bois flot tree, which soon shot
up like Jack's beanstalk and became the wonder of the neigh-
bourhood. Today, u n e s s it has been cut down by a tidy
suburbanite, that tree towers above a modern house in Trinidad,
its leaves as big as round tea-trays, and its trunk as strong as an
ox. The trees neatly planted by Ministers in Dominica this week
have a less miraculous beginning, but they are precious to us all,
and although we do not regard them (as Greeks and Romans of
old did) as habitations for the gods, it should make everybody
happy to see them grow to noble height.

obedience to a request made by some of

in your column, to inform this man,
"That he who has build'the house have

In 1945 I made a great sacrifice to
form the Trade Union and after some
hard work 23 branches were established
over the Island. At that time, Joseph

state of affairs.

The Housing Anti-Discrimination Order I
Thomas J. Marshall
Washington, November 23- This week's Presidential order banning racial
or any other kind of discrimination against buyers or renters of housing to be
built with governmental assistance is an important step forward in the civil rights
While anti bias laws already are in force in 17 states and a score of cities,
the new federal regulations apply on a national scale. They will affect a fairly
large sector of housing construction in the United States, certainly' a new advance
in pursuit of a national policy that seeks equal opportunity for all.
The ord r is not retroactive, But it directs federal agencies to "use their good
services" and take action, including litigation if necessary, to promote non-discrim-
inatory practices in housing created with federal financial assistance in the past.
Also a high powered "Presidential Committee on Equal Opportunities in
Housing," including several cabinet members, not only will supervise the carrying
out of housing order, it has allo been given the task of encouraging educational
programmes by civic groups of every conceivable kind to eliminate bias in hoping
and create an atmosphere in which such bias cannot flourish.
Specifically, the new order affects new construction directly financed by the
federal government; construction to,which the government contributes money, and
construction receiving other federal assistance, which mainly means government in-
surance of private mortgage money.
This latter kind of insurance has been a boon to home- building in the
United States for many years. But this is a field replete with financial, legal and
technical complexities and much thought will have to be given to the details of en-
forcing anti-bias regulations. Eliminating bias in public housin-frinranced, owned
or operated by government, or in housing built with federal loans, or with other
direct contribu ions (such as in slumclearance) is, of'course, a rather simple matter
of hardly more than issuing directives:
Duke To Auction Garter
LO.,DON, Nov. 22 CP: The Duke of B e d fo r d known as "The
S o w m a n Peer" because of his fund raising drives for his stately home will
auction off his insignia of Britain's most exclusive order of chivalry, the Order of
SUBSCRIBERS TO THE HERALD ARE REMINDED THAT ALL SUBSCRIPTIONS
ARE .PAYABLE IN ADVANCE. Town: $5.oo per year. Country $6.oo per year
The case of privately financed homes,, or rental property, where government
participation is restricted to mortgage insurance, is different. Federal agencies
active in home loan insurance have long cooperated with state anti-bias laws..
Fear and Bias
Nor is bias always the prime consideration for a refusal to sell or rent to a
particular person .Often it is simply fear of the unknown, fear, for example, that
a racially mixed neighborhood would depress property values--just as some 'home
builders still shun ultra-modern house styles which have not yet found full accept,
stance by the home-buying public.
But there to attack it--are ways such as, for example, a written nondiscrimira-
tion clause in mortgage contracts and cancellation of mortgage insurance in ca;e of
breach of contract. There is persuasion and there -is economic necessity since
mortgage insurance substantially lowers mortgage costs.
At any rate, the \ ay no.. is open for a large-scale experiment. It will yield
experience, and experience,' and experience often tends to simplify seemingly insolu-
ble problems. And it has behind it the power of the government which has proved
decisive in opening up equal opportunities without discrimination in education, in
hiring and other civil rights fields.

Tribal Move To Oust Mboya
In a move to defeat Tom Mboya in his bid for re-election to the Kenya
Legislative Council, political opponents of the shrewd young labor minister have
brought from outside members of the Kikuyu tribe in large numbers to register as
voters in Nairbi. Mboya, general secretary of the Kenya African National Union
(KANU) and former general secretary of the Kenya Federation of Labor, belongs
to the Luo tribe. At the Kenya general elections last year Mboya won with an
overwhelming majority against a Kikuya independent candidate, Dr. Mumyna
Though a supporter of KANU, the majority party which is headed by
Jomo Kenyatta who is Kikuyu, Dr. Waiyaki stood as an independent so as to
keep party discipline outwardly. He is planning to oppose Mboya again when
Kenya goes to the polls some time next year.
It is not certain when the elections will take place though Governor Patrick
Ranison has gone to London to make the dates final and to discuss other electoral
and constitutional matters. There has been talk of two general elections being
held before the colony is granted full independence. But African leaders, parti-
cularly those in the KANU, have reacted strongly to these suggestions and have
even threatened to resign from the coalition Cabinet if Britain tried to delay inde-
pendence by such tactics.
The coalition government was set up in London earlier this year after lengthy
talks between the British and members of the KANU and the Kenya African
Democratic Union, the colony's other major political party which is headed by
Ronald Ngala. Kenyatta and Ngala, under terms of the London agreement,
are co-ministers of state. Mboya was named labor minister in the coalition

An Attractive Evening Dress
Simplicity is the keynote of today's evemng dress. 1
The design may be austere-sleeveless, perhaps with no subtlety to the neckliae-yet the
fabric in which it is carried out can give a charming ly feminine air to an otherwise simple dress.
The combination of chiffon and lace, for instance, is used by many designers, the chiffon veiling '
th :lace in a way which adds elegance to the, nsemble. ..
If black chiffon is used over red lace th: effect can be gay without being dazzling; and
royal blue ch.ffjn over a lace in a tone of emerald green can loak equally charming.
Any good combination of colours can be used in this way, and if the wearer is a good
amateur dressmaker she can even make them up herself, separating the lace u ad'rdess from its .
chiffon veiling and making two or three of the latter indifferent colours.
In this way, she.can own what seem t9 be several ensembles each looking quite different.
This is a dress which.can be worn on any special occasion, yet one which would be "
equally at home at an informal; party.
The chiffon sheath, with its boat-shaped neck and swathed sash, the ends of which fall to
the hem, is worn over an under-dress in a particularly lovely lace which is subtly highlighted. (BIS)

Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Boys and Girls,-- Tomorrow is the First Sunday in Advent- the
time when the Church calls us to prepare for the coming of Christmas.
Two of our favourite drinks at Christmas time, are sorrel and ginger-beer.
Let's see how we make them so that we can help Mummy prepare her Christmas
Let's take sorrel first. At this time of the year the sorrel shrub with its bright
red fruits is a most beautiful sight. Gather as much fruit as you can. Remove
the petals from the pods, wash well and put to bo 1. Put a large piece of cinna-
mon in the pan. When the water has reach boiling point, remove from the fire
and leave to steep, till next day, Then strain, sweeten and bottle, putting 3 cloves
in each bottle. About 3 days after, your sorrel is fit to drink.
Now, for ginger-bser. A handful of ginger willgive about 4 or 5 bottles
of ginger beer. Scrape well and wash, Then cut into very small pieces. Some
people grate the ginger- this gives a stronger beer. Put in a pan of water to
boil. When it has boiled for about 20 minutes, remove from fire and squeeze in
the juice of half a green lime and let stand till next day.
Then add water to taste, sweeten, bottle and leave in the sun for two or three
days after which your ginger-beer is excellent. Now you add water before you
sweeten so as to bring it to the right strength- some people like a strong beer while
others don't, For children it is better not very strong.*
Well, you are all set for the Christmas drinks. These are so much cheaper
and nicer than some of the sweet drinks you buy in the shops. Besides, sorrel is
excellent for breakfast at Christmas time. The sorrel also makes a delicious jam.
Cherio till next week. Love from Auntie Fran.
*If you do not put your beer in the sun, add a few grains of rice. This will
help it to ferment.
This week's questions are as follows:
i) The sorrel plant is not a tree like the mango. It is a ----
2) You can prepare your ginger in 2 ways. Name thqm (i) ------
3) Two things can be done with your sorrql. They are (i) -

a breadth of vision to the session by
speaking on Education and Professional
Ethics. Analysing the words "Civil"
and "Servant" she appealed to Civil
Servants to hold to ideals of "justice"
in all things, Education in all fields
should continue during adult life, either
by seminars or public meetings, and
the civil servant should remember that
when they used taxpayers' time or ma-
terials for their own ends they were
offending against "justice".

ON SATURDAY MORNING, Novem-

JORD" under the command of Capt.
Ivar Gronbukt anchored off Roseau
with some 380 passengers aboard, who
came from all over the U. S. A,
Among them was Oregon Congress-
man Walter Norblad. The tourists,
it was observed, had a wonderful time,
both on the jetty and onland. On
the jetty, they were entertained by the
elegant dancing of gaily dressed local
girls to the beat of the C o c a-Cola
Steel Orchestra. One dancer, only
3 years old, had the tourists all bathed
in smiles, wiggling their unrhythmic
hips in all directions. Cameras flashed
and clicked, then the laughing ballerina
pocketed her gifts
Another delightful sight was when
some of the tourists who waited on the
ship for a launch to take them ashore,
threw all kinds of silver coins into the
sea so that young local swimmers could
dive for them before the coins reached
All types of vehicles transported the
tourists from Roseau to places of beauty
and interest. Over 6o cars organized
'by the Tourist Board were so packed
that even banana trucks had to be en-
gaged. For some businessmen it was
a very good week-end.

It was reported to us personally by
theHon.-H.D. Shillingford that the
sum asked by Government for connect.
ing Macoucherie from the electricity
line which runs between Roseau and
Salisbury, w h i c h (he states) passes
above his house, is $936,oo. Mr.
Shillingord considers the charge ex-
orbitant and has asked that the matter
be given publicity.
The HERALD contacted the C.D.C.
to obtain their view and they stated
that $936.oo was the price agreed be-
tween the C.D.C. engineer and Mr.
Howell Shillingford's agent when Mr.
Shillingford first asked for the service.
The cost is for labour and materials
only. The C.D.C. says that the line
passing near the estate is a transmission
line and not a distribution line.
