behind Ma:tinique: the French is-

On the local front good progress has
been made in the formation of co-opera-
tives to implement (he new fishing
scheme, for the marketing of copra, the
cutting of feeder roads, the purchase
of Felicite Estate and for a retail shop in
Calibishie. The Technical Wing to the
Grammar School was opened and good
progress made on the D G. S. building
itself. A new Treasury-Post-Office-Poiice

been otiaine' to complete the surfacing
and drainage: the extension of the Lee-

On the political front, Mrs. Allfrey's
expulsion from the Labour Party was the
big news. Rumoured to have stemmed
from her editorship of this paper (as
from June Ist) it resulted in a total rout
of the Labour Party by the D. U. P. P.
in the Roseau Town Council elections.
Roseau throughout the year 'has con-

And so as w,. draw near to 1963, the
last major highlight of our year is the
visit to Dominica of Secretary of State
for the Colonies, the Rt. Hon. iuncan
Sandys and his wife, accompanied by an
old Colonial Office friend of the West
Indies, Mr. 4. R. Thonas. It has been
a year of probes with publicity but with-
out results, and political rumours with-

which could however have been a lot
worse. And so We wish all our readers
an enlighteneie and happier New Year.

actually at work as 22,500. The firm
number of Unemployed as given to us
from this source is 80o in 1962 compared
with 500 in 1958.
Now these figures were shown to the
Editor in the HERALD office a few d a y s ago. But even
allowing for a brief time-lag, we beg to disagree with the
stated total of Unemployed. We think there are far more
than 800 workless ablebodied people in the territory of
Dominica. Moreover, we know that the number of under-
employed persons those who have a little "garden"
which provides ground provisions but does not maintain
its cultivators in any sort of civilised manner, is very high
indeed we can hardly guess how high. This is a fit and
urgent subject for local manpower research.
What has this got to do with the training of young girls?
A great deal. If at this moment of our history there are
hundreds of people, male and female, seeking (however
half-heartedly and listlessly) for work, what of the young
who have no skills and crafts and who will, unless
something radical is done to help them, become a further
drug on the labour market
We write mainly of young girls in this editorial, be-
cause they have been more vocal to us on the matter,
although the plight of the boys is just as pitiful. The
HERALD has for two weeks advertised the services of two
strong honest youths. Not a single offer of employment
has been received from a readership of over- a thousand loc '
people. Are there no jobs for those- who are ready and
willing to work for an honest dollar?
We have noticed that many girls show an eagerness to
learn skilled trades which is as great. as their unwillingness
to enter domestic service. If tnere were factories but
we cannot finish the sentence Ourgirls, taken early and
properly guided, coull be good, conscientious and diligent
workers in any field. Many of them, particularly in the
country districts, want to be Nujses; but there are not suffi-
cient opportunities. If.wecould co-ordinate this desire to
serve with a definite need for servic-, something might truly
For example, most Dominican girls have a genuine love
of chilicen, and some might, well be taught how to tare for
the nation's young Thereafter they could (if they oaitain-
a certificate or diploma) obtain jobs anywhere in "
ore to going on the streets or wasung the r pt
mental powers on idle pursuits.
In St. Vincent there is a scheme, b-cked by the Youth
Trust Fund, for the training of suitable guls as Nursery
Nurses. Dominica has desperate need of such a scheme,
and moreover already possesses the framework for it. We
believe that the moral leAders of this community would
support to the full a drive to make Dominican teen-age girls
not only self-supporting but valuable and respected assets
of our land.

Talking, even of the most earnest kind, is not the pur-

achieves nothing comparable to one small a c t i o n. The

about procedures and get on to grapple with the pith of its

person rarely knows all the facts or all the angles. An
exchange of opinions is necessary to spark right action. The
