Marigot Sub-Treasury, Roseau Tech. Wing
THE PEOPLE of Dominica are now richer by two excellent
functional buildings. The first, declared open by Mrs.
W. S. Stevens on December 3, is the new Marigot Sub-Treasury
and Police Station, which will also serve as Post O.tice and Mag-
istrate's Court for the population. Acting C. M. Hon. N.A.N.

Present at the formal opening of the
new technical wing provided for Dom-
inica's Grammar School were Miss
E. R. Donovan, U. S, Consul-General
in Barbados, Mr. Clare Richards, A,
I. D. Representative from Trinidad,
and Mr. James Cahoon, Arts Wing
Superintendent, St. Lucia who came
early to put the final touches for the
opening. After inspection of a smartly
turned-out guard- of honour by H. H.
the Administrator, and by the Lord's
Prayer, speeches were made by the
Headmaster of D. G. S, aid by the
distinguished guests from America.
Dominica Is With You
Miss Donovan, in a happy and en-
couraging speech, told a crowd which
included many interested citizens, some
ofwhom climbed uponthe unfinished
Grammar School buildings to listen,
that the Government of Dominica.had
cabled President Kennedy its backing
over the recent Cuban situation, and
that the President would shortly be
sending a reply. This was the first
knowledge the electorate had of such
action, which could be compared with
the message sent to Britain during
World War I the famous statement
"BarbaJus is with you." The U.S.
Consul-General said she looked for-

He then described the steps by which
this achievement took place, adding
that Dominica's technical wing had
something more than the others-an
agricultural section.
Credit And Thanks
Following the applause which ter-
minated Mr. Richard's address, the
Minister of Labour and Social Services,
Mi. Stevens, gave credit and thanks
appropriately where they were due, and
added that he was glad the U. S.
Consul General was a woman, she
would inspire the girls of Dominica;
he hoped that some day there would
also be a technical wing attached to a
girls' school in the island.
The Hon. Chief Minister, who had
just returned from a meeting of the
Regional Research Centre in Trinidad,
underlined the immense appreciation
expressed by' others of the U. S.
Government's generosity, which would
cement good relations.
Conference In Trinidad
'Mr. O.A. Walker, describing his
thanks as almost superfluous as so m:.nv
people had already been mentioned in
connection with the co-operative effort,
declared that he had been present a. an
education conference in Trinidad in

1959 which had given impetus to the
creation of thcse technical wings. He
v-.s very glad Dominica now had one,
and must see that It is '.ut to good use.

convivial light of candles. On came the lights again, the bane was rolled a few

Ouiet Week For Police

Last week was reported to be one of the quiecst for a long
time sirice recent occurrences of breaking and entering into bus-
iness places down town. This success might be attributed to
the several arrests made by the police. However, there h a v e
been several reports of the stealing of bicycles, three at J e ff e r s
Lane, Goolwill; one by the roadside at Loubiere, and the other
in the vicinity of the cinema. The police request bicycle own-
ers to Lc more responsible in keeping their cycles locked at all
times. Your cycle c o s t s money keep an eye on it always,
whether it's locked or not.
A siev.:dore who is suspected of having stolen two p a i r s
of shoes from the warehouse was recently arrested and charged
with larceny. A man was arrested on a charge of wounding
a young woman, Barbara Boston, of Bath Road: the w o in a n
was alleged to have been beaten with a piece of iron; the accused
is fut ier charged with beating up the policeman arresting him !
and Jamaging his cell bunk in the Roseau Police Station.

The Road To Castle Bruce (2)
Surveyor General's Report, 1828

The working of the new r o a d to Windward was com-
menced on the 9th October, 1827, from the lower part of Mr.
Bellot's pasture at Brigantin and continued to the end of Novem-
ber, at which period it had been opened nearly to the last branch
of the Mahaut river, where there is a very steep descent on both
sides; this is fully one-half of the distance required to complete
the junction of the road to the part already finished by C a s t 1 e
Bruce Estate.
At an inconsiderable distance after passing the ford of the
Mahaut river above-mentioned, the road joins the one from Hat-
ton Garden, which latter has been opened, although in some
places imperfectly owing to the fo r m e r large washes* etc., by
Negroes of the several estates of that quarter under the direction
of Mr. Appleton: the zeal and activity shown by this gentleman
cannot be too highly estimated, and without his exertions t h i s
part of the undertakitig would not have.been accomplished. Not
having visited the Castle Bruce road since the original track that
was cut to that place, I cannot speak personally as to its merits,
but by the reports of several individuals who have passed through
it it has been finished by Mr. Smith in a very superior manner.
The principal difficulty in working the r o a d at this side
arose at the commencement when there was an absolute necessity
of carrying the road along a narrow ridge terminating abruptly
in a steep declivity down to an extensive flat.
This ridge was covered with a species of iron-wood (called
here Bois Diable), that set our tools at defiance, and had it not
been for the assistance of His Honour the President, who sent 12
Negroes for three weeks solely occupied, on the ridge, the d e l a y
would have been very great. The flat was reached by means of
-gec zig-zag cuts a_.- _:.-t -Asia-thsi ty-aat. a centdo
inches by 6 feet.
From this place the road proceeds nearly on a level, crossing
several small branches of the Mahaut river to the principal and,
last branch before mentioned. At the .end of November 1 a s t
year the rangers w e r e called-off for the purpose of scouring the
country in search of the Martinique runaways, and s i n c e that
period the weather has been such as :o render the working of
the road impracticable.
The rangers have this week resumed their labours, and with
the assistance of 12 to j1 hands in addition to their present num-
ber, I anticipate with confidence that this desirable object, one
which I trust will prove of considerable public benefit, will be
completed about the beginning of May. No d o u b t can now
exist respecting the practicability, and the whole expense will
not, I conceive, exceed the amount fi r s t estimated, viz: 50oo
Currency. I should have mentioned that there is a small space
at the beginning of the r o a d left unopened, to prevent the pre-
mature passage of horses or cattle. In those places, where the
road crosses gr o u n d in a swampy state, it may afterwards be
found necessary to dig drains on one or both side;; in the mean
time it is proper to see what effect the free access of the sun and
air during the the dry season may have upon it.

Economic Needs Of The "Little

In the House of Commons last week Mr. Donald Chap-
man asked the Secretary of S t a t e for the Colonies whether he
would make a statement about the study of the future financial
needs of the territories which are expect ed to form the new West
Indies Federation.
Mr. Nigel Fisher replied: "A detailed survey of the econo-
mic needs and potential development of the area has been en-
trusted to Dr. Carleen O'Loughlin. She is engaged on a pro-
gramme of economic research in the Eastern Caribbean under-
taken by the University of the West Indies and financed f r o m
Colonial Development and Welfare Funds.
Mr. Donald Chapman also asked what further work had
been done since July by the West Indies Regional Council of
Mr. Fisher replied: "The Regional Council of Ministers has
held one further meeting in Barbados b e t w e e n 6th and 8th
"In the absence of a representative from Grenada the five
representatives of the territories whose legislatures had not already
accepted the White Paper re-affirmed their Government's support
for the proposed new federation.
"Subseq uently the full council considered a n u m b e r of
questions of detail relating to the c o n t r o 1 and financing of
regional services to replace those previously the responsibility of
the Federal Government."
Dr. O'Loughlin worked in the Statistical Department of
the former W. I. Federal Government for some time.

As a member and chairman of our

On Saturday, the first of December
1962, I was passing by the Banana

the man in charge of the shed saying,
"I will shw them what sort of a man

I asked a woman standing by; what is

he nilt two little girls playing with a
rubber band, and the police asked'them
where the/ gott from, they saidit was

Then t ie police went to a house where
three children were, he questioned
them ibaut a box of rubber bands and
they w:re sent by the policeman to

told h.: police there is no rubber band

quired for the mother of the children,
I was told that the mother went to the

is something brewing, and some one is

as scapegoats.

Dear Mrs. Editor,
As you are one of
the Trustees of the now well-publ'cised
West Indies Youth Trust 1-und and
also elected Chairman of the Dominica

to say how much interested I am in
the idea, as mother of a large family, in
company --I am sure --- with many
others like myself, who are unable in-
deed through poverty to provide for our,
youthful children.
We (if I may speak for the many in.
articulate poverty stricken) would like
our children to take their place side by
side with their more privileged compan-
ions so that they may become useful
citizens of their 'country but, alas,! they
must remain the "underprivileged" if

clothe and train them.
Lady Hailes must have been irresisti-

which so many of the potential citizens
live, in those parts of the West Indies
she visited, which has a result in the
praiseworthy launching of the W.I.

From TAe Buuletin Of

The National Coun-
cie For Civil Liber-
ties London.

This Council has always defended
the right of free speech, and believe, that
tlis right applies to anyone of any group
who wishes peacefully to propate any
policy or opinion. We are, however,
opposed to th: abuse offr:e speech as
represented by the spreading of race hate.
In August we criticised the Ministee of
ioiks for banning the fascist meetings
11 Trafalgar Square. No amount of
Spolit.,l'-per.uasjon can change a man's
ancesirs or his colour; racial incite-
ment and racialist policies can only lead
to hliumiliatioai, violence, and resultant
lo's's uf lib.ty. It is with thi. libetty in
mind thia tae Council has for several
years pressed for legislation against the
incitement of raLe hatred and the events
of recent months have s h o w n how
necessary this is.
We do not, have not, and shall not
forget that freedom of speech is the very
essence of civil liberty, and that it must
be accorded to all. But freedom muit
be defended by the statute book, and by
our elected representatives, not by ad-
ministrative action or bans imposed by
t e Minister of Works or the Comniis-
s,,oner ol Police.

Promising Acting By C.S.A. Players

Collins O'Neill
Oa Mmnd ty night November 26, over two hundred people turned up at Gov-
ernment House grounds to see the production of wo plays presented by the Civil
Service Association. The plays BOND OF MATRIMONY by J.S. Barker
and'THE ONE EYE IS KING by Roderick Walcott were a success. Pr.de of
place goes to the second play performed, BOND OF MATRIMONY. Rud-
olph Richards who played Boysie was indeed the only player seeing himself in
his character and if he had got better support from his co actors the production
would undoubtedly have, seen superb. To my mind one or two persons of the
cast were green to the stage, which would explain flaws like unwarranted laughs
and wrong gestures. However, I must congratulate the producer Mr. A.B. Lazare
for his wonderful effort.
The One-Eye Is King
THE ONE-EYE IS KING is another lively play, but the performance
was such as to endanger the complete production. First I should deal with 'mask-
ing'. This laxity is largely due to bad stage direction; sometimes to the greenness
of the players on stage. Some of our readers may not know what is masking, but
it simply means one or more players hidden by other players thus obscuring the
view of the audience, This went on lavishly right from the start. Some players
deliberately looked or waited for other players to make their entries; that too was a
piece of bad acting. Again, there were a lot of wrong gestures in this play. The
producer, frankly, failed miserably in some instances: on several occasions there was
an actress who sat on a couch or chair as though she had been a mm, or let me
say 'in a boyish manner.' If this was purposely intended then I think the produ-
cer should have had her take up a poiiton less embarrassing to the audience.
Sound Effects Good
A player should learn how to sit, walk and turn on the stage, even if it be
the size of a match-box. Another thing was the slow picking up of cues: if stage
fright is the case of this, then the producer is obviously forgiven. The sound
effects of the rain in the play were excellent, for at times persons in the audience
were seen putting o' their hands so as to see if the rain was falig on hem lo
Finally, in this play I often wonder why the acting area was set r i g h t up stage.
Many producers have a tendency to use the up-stage rather than the down-stage area
this of course is unsound. Generally the production was good.
Advice to Producers
A word of advice to young producers. When you have been through several
rehearsals without scripts, a wise thing to do is to get hold of your script, read it
word for word with every player in mind, then if you have a good imagination you
will readily see each player's mistake bor omissions. Take note in your notebook
and correct the player immediatelthey return for rehearsal. And finally, never
devote all your attention to one 'backward player.

A Tip lo Young Actors
If you want to act wil,l first' try to overcome stage fright. Learn your lines
thorough' Ij so that there may be no need .for prompting. If there is a prompter do
nut depend" on him; often inaccurate prompting jeopardizes an entire production.
Ani ren:etiber, acting means doing the rigft thmng at the right time.
Among the players in BOND OF MATRIMONY were Miss O. Sy#ies,
S. Bruney, F. Andre, B. Moses. J. Robinson, Miss E. Bellot, and Miss M. Burke,
Playing in "THE ONE-EYE IS KING" were B. Eugene, T. ,rtrand, C. Butler
R. Richards, J. Lawrence N. Collins and Miss J. James.

Dominica to me
Tall mountains clothed with\leafage green.
Down which flows many a gurgling stream,
Pink cliffs tilt sheer into the sea,
This is Dominica to me.
The people are a friendly race,
And often show a smiling face,
Their laughter rises clear and free,
This is Domiiica to me.
The fishing hamlets dot the coast,
And streams or rivers flow through most,
While conch-shells echo out to sea,
This is Dominica to me.
The sunset and the fleecy cloud.
And sometimes too, a tempest loud,
The orange sun, a coconut tree- '
This is Dominica to me.
A land of brown, and greens and blues,
A lind of many splendid hues,
A land of calm serenity,
This is Dominica to me




Children's (Factual Tesl) Corner
Dear Boys and Girls, Recently you 'lave been hearing quite a lot
about West Indies Youth Trust Fund. You saw posters about it, some
of you even:attended a film sho. last Saturday at the St. Gerard's Hall to
Collect fund fo- the c.use. Now, lets talk about it today.
Lady Hatles, wife of the f, rmer Governoi-General, travelled widely all
over the West Indian h aids and got to knjw tnem thoroughly. She saw
more than the us i t tlurist who a.ei onlv tn: bea t.ful things the islands
have tooffer-- I .v:ly sAnJy bsac is, ho eli. aliJ noautiful scenery. She
saw thousands of b!'it tron who live in slums, those who are crippled. those
who are blind, those who are deaf and 'dumn': aind.taose who live in ex-
treme poverty, and suffer fo om in tnutriuo i (poor feeding).
Strange as it mary seem to you, there is ,s much poverty and distress
in the rith islands as in lie poor ones. In f.ct I don't think you have
any idea:of tht: iype of n i rn: s s s n: p -opie t1 larger.islands live in.
"Cow lown" could give you an idea; but ttie Government promptly put
i stop, to Cow Towr, when they di cidcd to erect the Grammar School on
that suot, and they bu It new houses for i'- inhabitiats.
Well Lady Hales' heart was touch :d by what she saw, and she de-
cided to.do some sing a'biu it. She wiv dole to get a Social Worker.
Miss ,Moniha Green; from Eogland to visit hbe West Indies, investigate
ihbse conditions :nd inke a report. .
A committee was formed. Lady Hailes\became the President. A
Fund was started to help relieve the situation. Mrs. Allfry, after she
hd, ceased to ba F.d::ral Minister for Social Afftiis, was named a Trustee.
'Of course you know what happened to the West Indian nation.
However, that does not m.an ihai the idea must ,b abandoned! A local.
commiitte has been set up and Mrs. Allfrey made its chairman.
Christmas is the time when nearly everyone., shows love and goodwill
t. v .'ds others What better way can you spazd a truly happy Christ-i
mas than by "giving" something out of your Christmas money to help
tuiose kss fortunate than yourself?
Pc haps as you go shopping you will see o0ie'of these collection tins
-round. Drop in a coin. Every little penny, helps. The money willbe
iecd to help the distressed little ones in your island h6ie.
Then you will be able to hear agai i in your own little hearts the mess-
a,'e of the angels; "Peace on earth to Men :of Goodwill" and spread a
r a!ly Happy Christmas, knowing that you have contributed towards help-
i someone 'less fortunate than you. ,
Cherio till next week. Love from Auntie Fran.
This week's questions are as foJllws: ,
(1) Who lrst thougni ol 01 elp' g disf's'chi'-arr -;- rie u *-^

Aime iesaire's Triumph

Re-elected Deputy

MARTINIQUE, November 1962. Monsieur Aime Cesaire, poet and Icader of
Martinique's Progressive Party, was re-elcted to the French National Assembly as
an M. P. after a sweeping second-round victory in the Central Region. During
the first tour or trial (since France has proportional representation) lMr. Cesaire
received less than the required majority, because of a tremendous number of abste i-
tio~ Jue to internal politics. One of his early associates had turned against him and
gre- l :onfu:,ion ensued, during which Communists and RightWing leactionaries
printed. On Sunday November 26, however, in the sec rid round Mr. Cesaire
won 22,662 votes out of a total v6te of 25,633; the Comini.-nist candidate had to
vw riidaw. During the week before polling day, Mr. Cesaire worked night and
d4, persuading the voters that ii was their duty to go to dte polls; he managed to
rT'iuc all opposition arguments and misstatements.
Our correspondent writes that it was a great victory, one without precedent in
the history of Martinique: for the first time nobody spoke of election frauds-an
:mmense majority having been obtained, and the upright conduct of Mr. Cesaire
having been without question.
The man who nearly caused Mr. Cesaire to resign in disgust Giom all poli-
i; alaction after the first round was one of his best former colleagues, whoml he had
i: lpcd to become a Senator. After thelelection, writes our corresportient, some
white businessmen came into the crowded Town Hall to shake Mr. Cesaire's hand
and thank him for saving Martinique from the Communists. Some of these, who
hi I never seen him personally before, were very astonished to find he was so "black"!
The HERALD congratulates Monsieur Cesaire on his magnificent win and
h spes that he will pay Dominica a visit one of these days.
