Britain And The
Gommon Market
B
J. M. G. ae ADAMS

20 it’s over at last! After sixteen months the negotiations
between the UK and the European Economic Com-
munity have ended in final breakdown, and (according to
opponents of the Common Market) the Commonwealth can
breathe again. What lies behind the collapse, Britain’s bid
to join Europe, perhaps the greatest peacetime ‘defeat’ ever
suffered in the country’s long history?

The story of the efforts made by the nations of Europe
to come closer together, first in economic relationships and
later in political action, goes back to the days just after the
second world War when a number of the nations of We:-
tern Europe resolved that never again would they be driven
to War by national rivalries, either economic of political.
These countries had one thing in common—they had _ all
been beaten in the War, four of them by Germany while
Italy and Germany itself were occupied by the Western
Allies. They all shared a common, interest in reconstruc-
tion, and they joined to promote the European Coal and
Steel community, the European Atomic organisation and,
“in 1956, the European Economic Community, widely
known as the Common Market.

Aloof

Britain held aloof from all this, The United Kuing-
dom was a victor in the War; it was the centre of a mighty
Empire, and in those days it had a Socialist’ Government
with its own formulas for prosperity. It had, or appeared
to have, great individual economic ipower, and after the
Common Market come into being, » Britain : promoted the
“Formation of arival organisation the European Free “Frade
Association. In time this failed, and no doubt provided
one of the reasons why Britain sought, in 1962, membership
of the Common Market. - es



Other Reasons

Other reasons have also been suggested. One is that
Mr. Macmillan wanted to find an issue on which the Con-
servative Party could win its fourth straight election; (the
general Conservative wish to make Britain free once and _ for
all of the possibility of more socialism could be achieved by
way of the Common Market since the resiiction on sovereignty
involved in the Treaty of Rome could rule out many of the
planning measures that a Labour Government might wish
to introduce). Another is that there was a wish to turn
away from the Commonwealth now that many African and
Asian countries were becoming independent.

Those were of course reasons given by the opponents
of the Common Market.

In Favour

Those in favour of Britain’s joining argued that Europe
was the most ‘dynamic’ market in the world; that the econo
mies of the Common Market countries were growing faster
than Britain’s and that a new United Europe could have a
voice in the world equal to America’s and Russia’s. Despite
the higher standard of living, Britain, it was said, would
stagnate if it did not join and its manufacturers did not step
up their methods to compete with the European producers.

The latter half of the statement was widely accepted in
Britain, but as the late Hugh Gaitskell pointed out, Britain
did not need to “join ’em to beat ’em.”

With this background, the Common Market _ negotia-
tions started. These negotiations wére unlike any others that
have ever been conducted on a subject of such tremendous
importance to the participants. One French diplomat red
marked that the delegation of the Six wanted to talk

Common Market
(Continued from page 2)

about working out a grand design for reat unity; the British
wished to seti!e the question of imports of kngaroo meat.

Commonwealth Interests

The British Government, in fact, publicly put ‘the
interests of the Commonwealth” high on the list of things
that had to be “safeguarded”. On the other hand, critics of
the Common Market; led by Lord Beaverbrook and_ the
iExpress group of newspapers said that the Commonwealth
had already been sold down the river. Observers in the
middle of of the road, however, said that the crunch would
come on two points; first, the British subsidies to _ domestic

agriculture-and-secondly the political plans “of General

de Gaulle. 4

Agricultural subsidies are, in genetal, forbidden by the
Treaty of Rome:(which set up the Common Market) and it
was well understood that the £300 million a year that the
British Government pays British farmers in order t> reduc:
food prices to British housewives would in time have to be
stopped with a possibly devastating effect on the cost of food.

In the event, this formidable problem was never settled
for President De Gauile torpedoed the negotiations on more
general grounds. In one stroke he ended the growing doubis
of the British people, as revealed by the public opinion polls,
as to the necessity or wisdom of joining the EEC, and the
perhaps greater coubts of the Conservative party as to whether
the Market was still an election winner. For some months
the collapse had been foreseen by many observers in Britain,
and despite the constant stream of propaganda from official’
government sources right up to the very end, it became more
and more obvious that.the negotiations were going to break
down, more or less: finally. . i

With acknowledgement to the “ B acon”, Bartados. Mr. Tom
Adams is the barrisier son of Sir Grantley A

~ Common Market ‘Debate



As expected, the House of Commons last week endorsed the Govern-
ment motion asking it to declare ‘full confidence in'(its) determination and
aiility ...to deal with the... situation arising from the breakdown of
Brnssels negotiations” by a majority-of 103. The Opposition mo-con-
fidence amendment was defeated“ by a similar majority. Commenting on
this the London “Times” in a long leader said ‘ what the House thinks hardly
matters: it is what the nation thinks that will determine everything.’*» Re-
ferring to the underdeveloped countries, the writer went on to say “‘it is no
use buying raw commodities at cut-throat prices it the result is to impover-
ish prospective customers. . Whatever Communism’s fortunes, there
will be no lasting peace while half the world live in plenty and the other
half in huugry squalor. The European Economic Community may not
recognize this truth, Britain must .....”

Opposition Criticism

Mr. Harold Wilson (who was later in the week elected leader of the Parlia-
mentary Labour arty), in proposing the Opposition “tno confidence’’
amendment stronaly criticised the Government’s handling of the E.C.M.
negotiations, saying that the idea put forward by Mr. Macmillan that the
Government was within an ace of achieving a satisf.c‘ory agreement only to
have the prize snatched away by an intransigent Frenchman was a “myth’,
which must be killed. The terms which had already been negotiated con-
stituted “national humiliation.”

Mr, Wilson called for a new Commonwealth Prime Minisser’s Con-
ference “to restore confidence” and he urged that links with EFTA
(the seven) should be strengthened ‘‘until something better comes along.”
(In opening the debate Mr. Macmillan proposed that a meeting of com-
monwealth Trade Ministers in London should be held shortly).

The Leader of the Opposition went on to say chat the Brussels break-
down should not be regarded as a disaster, but they should go forward with
the “Kennedy round.” “Instead of a confrontation with the United States
on one side of the table and the enlarged Six including Britain on the other,
we should have the Six on one side and the U.S. and Britain, our EFTA
partners and our Commonwealth on the other.”

United States View

Mr. Wilson views were echoed officially by the U.S. in a statement by the
U.S. Representative for Trade Negotiatiohs Mr. Christian A. Herter, who
also said: ‘The vast majority of European people and, with only isolated
exceptions the leaders who represent them, realize that the Common Market |
is a European movement and must be opened to all European countries
prepare to adhere to its principals. It cannot be used to serve national poli-
cies.’ Improvement of production and trade efficiency through competi-
tjon, he said, it is crucial, because will enable the free world to better

Fearlessness
By Mahatma Gandi

Fearlessness connotes freedom
from all external fear—f-ar of

’ disease, bodily injury and deaths,

of dispossession, of losing one’s
nearest and dearest, of losing re-
putation or giving offence, and
sO on. One who overcomes the
fear of death does not surmount
all other fears asis commonly
but erroneously supposed. Some
of us do not fear death. but glee
from the minor il’s of life. Some
are ready to die themselves, but
cannot’ bear their loved ones
being taken away from them.
Some maisers will put up with al!
this, will part even with their
lives, Dut not their property;
othe s will do uny number of
black deeds, in order to uphold
their supposed prestige. Some
will swerve from the straight and
narrow path, which lies clear be-
fore them simply because they
are afraid of incurring the
world’s odium. The seeker after
Truth must. conquer all these
fears. .

One cannot follow Truth or
Love so long as one is subject
to fear. A seeker after Truth
must g.ve up the fear of parents,
caste, governinent, robbers, etc.,
and he must not be frightened
by poverty or deatb.

Fearlessness does not mean

This in itself is a sign of fear.

ERE we are again, approaching the
gay bacchanalia which means
“goodbye to the Aesh” — Carne vale
—fundamentally an exuberance of human
nature before the serious religious abstin-
ence of forty days of Lent.
This festival, born and nurtured in
Latin countries and eminently suited to
the tropical temperament, has changed its
trend in the lands of the Caribbean. In
Dominica it used to be simply “‘masquer-
ade”: opening up a two-day fantasy
world to the inhabitants of this magnifi-
cent criss-cross mountain range which juts
‘up out of a cobalt sea. In such time of
escape and indulgence, nearly everyone
wished to be different than he or she was
in everyday life. The conventional well-
to-do masqueraded as Lapeau-cabwuits
in crocus bags, while the poor dressed in
satin and sparkle-- emperors for forty-eight
hours. Short men occasionally climbed
up on bois-bois (stilts) and thin men
stuffed pillows into blouses and pretended.
to be stout countrywomen.

their kind of humour. — |
But masquerade has. now become Car-
nival with.a side-glance at Trinidad and
the tourist trade, and it is yearly being Im-
proved. Our eyes and ears will absorb
with appreciation what the Improvers
have done to the old folk-festival, in
which the Junior: Chamber of Commerce
and the business community take consi-
derable interest. Donations to carnival
funds, for example, often exceed hand-
outs to charities. The wonderful dazzling
bands will be there, some individualistic,
some craftily advertising popular products;
and “sponsored” beauty queens, who
blushed unséen in the days when we
might almost have qualified, have become
the mode. The festival has taken on a
plastic and sateen gloss and has become
more respectable, more barefaced and_ less
escapist; if we continue to follow the
Trinidad pattern closely enough, it will
become a spectacle rather than an all-out

MASQUERADE OR GARNIVAL

terrifying. earthenware masks,

The “obscene

participation.

Even before the fascination or Jouvet
(jour ouvert), a difference in preparation
may be noted. Where are the songs o
yesteryear? In no spots around Roseau
can old-time tomtom beating, particularly
on moonlight rights months ahead of the
event, be heard spurring on the composer
of gossipy verses and his hangers-on.
True, we now have “radio renditions” in
advance, and the old glancing patots
mepwis is still at work, but it has a spar-
rovian flavour. Young persons today
jump about at night and say they are
“practising for carnival”: but this prac-
tice is feckless and without a folk-lore
thythm.

And the sideshows! Ancient people
remind us with nostalgia of the puppet
boxes, the bele dances at street corners,
the'trays of pistache and benies and the
revealed
when ghostly sheets. were stripped off at
Jouvert and long arms, gleaming with
treacly ochre or blueing, reached out to
ze (c d to seize) the Howery
douilettes of the ladies, who all wore

pink-cheeked wire masks with slanting

blue eyes. Nobly plumed Indians, with
mirrors gleaming from their foreheads,
have vanished into retrospect. Everyone
then “ran mask”, and the clang of buckets,
bells and triangles made falsetto sounds
against the tremendous thump-thump of
drums and feet and the concurrent beating
of thousands of excited hearts. One or
two steel bands have replaced most of that.

But everything was not sweetness and
light in the old days, especially when
dusk was falling; it was the moment of
saturation, obstinacy and sometimes even
of revenge. We hope those shady inci-
dents are improved away forever, so that
as Ash Wednesday approaches and the
people of Dominica cool their aching feet
under taps or in the Roseau river, there
will be nothing to regret during the long
prayerful days ahead.

FEDERATION DAY

We aie celebrating today, probably
because of some official oversight, a once:
proud concept of nationh which no
longer exists: the first Federation of the
West Indies. True, the date has been
turned into a shopping half-holiday by
local decree. But the anniversary ts there,
as a reminder and (in some measure) a
reproach. The first Federation failed be-
cause of faulty human relationships and
economics. But many good things were
started in those days — not all of them as
visible as the Federal ships — which bene-

fit us still, So while we regret the waste,
we may yet be thankful to those who
made efforts and even sacrifices in an
attempt to turn polyglot and far-flung
communities into a nation, and forgive
those who made selfish mistakes.

“The lesson is there for the new smaller
Federation: we cannot succeed in federa-
ting unless we admit that the whole is
gteater than the part, and work together
unstintingly toward that end..

letter sent by Sister Mary Alicia,
¢. $.S. A. to the “Catholic News”,
Trinidad—Editor,
Catholic Social Centre
Roseau, Dominica
February 18, 1963

Editor-in chief,

The Catholic News,

34 Belmont Circular Road,

Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

Dear Sir:

An article entitled “A
Nun’s Story” which appeared
in the January 5 issue ot your
paper, was recently brought
to my attention. This arti-
cle was supposedly based on
my work with credit unions
in Dominica.

The article as it was printed
has about as much _relation-
ship to the Credit Union
Movement in Dominica now
as the man in the moon. It
is extremely out-dated, dis-
torted and presents an extrem-
ly unfair picture ot Dominica

“The Saviour of the Island.”
This simply is not wue an
isa sad reflection on all the

many Dominicans who have

worked so hard for their
Island.

In the second paragraph—
you write, “The financial
needs of families were so
great and the people knew
so little about savings.”
This was possibly the situa-
tion many years ago, but
certainly is mot so today.
Even the humblest person
saviug 25 cents a week is
well aware of the value of
saving.

In the third paragraph—it
is stated that the Credit
Unions here have 6,000
members. At present, there
arte 7,500 members with sav-
ings of $600,000.00.

In the seventh paragraph—
it says that Dominica has
one high school when, in
fact, there are four high
schools here.

In the eighth paragraph —
itis stated that people who
work on estates are paid 75¢
to $1.00 a day. This was
true Io—1§ years ago, but
certainly not today. Wages
for labourers are much higher
and living standards have
improved greatly.

In the ninth paragraph—~

in the first few years of work
here, but none has been done
by me for at least eight years.
Also it is stated that Moth-
et Mary Elizabeth (inciden-
tally, our proper title has been
Sister, not Mother, for the
past several years) was assign-
ed as an assistant last year.
Up until last October,
Sister Mary Elizabeth had
been a member of the Catho-
lic Social Centre Staff for
6—7 years. In addition,
Sister Mary Adele (not
Abele) has not worked with
Children’s Credit Unions
since 19§3—$4. The figure
of $2,000.00, said to have
already been saved by children
in one primary school, is far
too low. Children in one
of our smallar villages have
saved over $3,000.00, and in
Roseau schools the figure
would be comparably higher.

In the tenth paragraph—we

_ have had our own transport

since 1959. Asto “several
ions through dangerous _
waters,” this occurred. only.

d once and was one of. the

first trips I took, 10 years ago.

Inthe eleventh paragraph
—in discussing methods used
to teach the people about
credit unions, I must take
strong exception to the fol-
lowing sentence: ‘Now some
of the early credit union
members are experienced
enough to go with her as
Voluntary assistants in this
extension programme.” I
have not been connected with
the management of the credit
unions here since 1956—57.
Ie has been excellently run
by looal leaders since that
time, and expansion has been
going on under their able
direction continuously.

In the twelfth paragraph—
this entire paragraph is mis-
leading. In the first place,
there are three banks in Ro-
seau and several in other
communities on the Island.
Also, it is unheard of now
to have to pay 100% interest
on a loan, as is suggested in
the article.

In the thirteenth paragraph
-——the statement, “They don’t
borrow much, they just live
in misery” just is not true
here today. Not only do

Boys Brigade Week

Carnival Week is also an important week to the Boys Brigade, and in
the Open Letter published below an appeal is made to all to pause in their
celebrations and give generously to an organis~tion which above all cares
about our young boys, keeps them off the streets and gives them a_mean-
ing and purpose in life. In the soher days after Carnival the B.B, will
still be asking for your help—the week is from Fed vary 25th to March
4th—-please give all you can afford —with a prayer

Dear Friends, CUE
Once again §
Caribbean Boys Brigade |
Week is here. The date §
set is February 25 to March |
4. Over 5,000 Officers |
and Boys of the Caribbean |
will go out collecting dur- ;
ing this week. Although |
Boys Brigade or “B. B.” |
Week is not a National ‘
appeal to the public, but |
rather an opportunity for '
friends and supporters cf
the Boys Brigade to give |
their financial backing,
we feel it best to give the ;
week wide publication.
B. B. Week is more —

important than ever before if the Brigade is to go on advan7-
ing in the Caribbean. We must ensure that we can sup-
port our own training organiser and also be able to build up
company funds for many purposes such as training, equip-
ment, literature and camp.

One of the most outstanding and memorable B. B.
events this year will be the International Camp to be held in
the Highlands of Scotland at Glenalmond, Perthshire,
August 14—22. It is hoped that the Caribbean will be
well represented and that officers and N. C. O.s will avail
themselves of the opportunity of attending truning courses
at Felden Lodge, near London, and Cazronvale near Glass-
































gow.

the needs of the Caribbean with its twin pillars of Discipline
and Religion. Never before in the history of these territories
has there been more pressing need for dedicated Christian
men—a splendid challenge for the Boys Brigade, a challenge
which gives the heart urgency and passion for the spiritual
welfare of our young boys.

B. B. Week enables you to play a part in serving the
Youth of your territory. Last year the response was magni-
ficent, but we are not resting on our laurels, we have fresh
heights to conquer.

I therefore beseech all Officers and Boys and Old Boys,
also parents and friends to give generously and help the
Brigade to further its work of advancing Christ's Kingdom
among Boys.

Greetings and good wishes for a successful B. B.
Week, ;

With the commencement of the Fertilizer Credit Scheme we would
like all planters to study seriously the following suggestions: --

3.

4.

Before signing the agreement for Fertilizer Credit please find out all
the details; remember that Dominica is still in the hurricane zone.
Pay cash for what you can and only take on credit the extra bags

Only buy the amount of fertilizer you can use in a short time, be-
cause unlike alcohol, it does not mature with age.

Make the most use of every pound of fertilizer by using the type best
suited to your cultivation, regatdless of price,

This brings us to the type of fertilize: to use. No matter what comb‘na-
tion of fertilizers we may use, we must constantly observe the type of bunch of
bananas we produce, because no single recommendation can possibly be the

Lest for island wide usage,

Fron our observation and close co-operation

with our Agricultural Officer and Mr. Lionel Smith, Banana Agronomist,
we can all eventually discover che fertilizers best suited to each area.
The following is a basic recommendation:~ ~

I.

Potash (K): e.g,

Plant with 8 ozs. Triple Superphosphate in the hole.

After weeding, at about 6 weeks apply, to each mat 1 tb of Sulphate
Ammonia or a mixed fertilizer high in Nitrogen, e.g. 10- 8-4.

Any credit scheme is like dynamite: used caut-

tiously it is wonderful, but reck'essly it can blow up in your face.

The Executive Committee of the Dominica Agricultural Society asks
those interested in this Society to help them choose a motto for the Society.
It should embody the objects of the Society, which read as follow:—

“The object of the Society shall be the dessemination of agricultural

knowledge,

branches of agriculture in the Colony,

and the consideration, encouragement and advancement of all

and of all matters and things incid-

ental or appertaining thereto, in such manner as the Committee shall think

advisable.”

Issued By
Minister For Labour And Soc-
ial Services :
‘Tith February, 1963

The Dominica Chronicle of Wed-
nesday 6th February last contains
the following report as part of a
speech which Hon. E. B. Henry
made in Roseau on the night of
February 1, 1963 ata Dominica
United Peoples’ Party political
meeting: “‘He condemned Mr. Stevens
for lying a lie’* ‘*by stating that
teacher bursaries were existent, but
unused during the time of the last
govt, when it was only during the
time of the present government that
Commonwealth Education Institute
had decided bursaries were granted’’.

In the first place the Honourable
Member o f t he Opposition Mr.
Elkin Henry is confused and ex-
hibits total ignorance of the various
institutions and organisations in con
nection with the Commonwealth.
There is no such thing as a Com-
monwealth Education Institute in
Britain. There is a Commonwealth
Institute, which is a different organ-
isation ftom The Commonwealth
Teacher Training Bursary Scheme.
This Scheme was a result of the
Commonwealth Education Confer-
ence held for the first time at Oxford
in 1959.

In a despatch of August 1960
with which Mr. Henry is fully ac-
quainted, mention is made of 308
teacher students from dependent terri-
tories. Dominica was not then in-
cluded. Notice was also then given
that application forms for the 196x

It is the solemn duty of a ministry
to make sure that people who pay

Henry may now wish to apologise
to the public and make a correction
for the benefit ofthe public of
Dominica, his party, his audience

U.S. To Preserve
Food Through
Radiation

NEW YORK, January 30---The U-
S. Atomic Energy Commission
(AEC), will seek to demonstrate the
technical and economic feasibility of
preserving fish products through radi-
ation,

An irradiator 1s being built by
the Commission as part of its ra-
diation-pasteurized foods program.
This program is directed toward ex-
tending the refrigerated storage life
of fresh products, such as fish and
fruits, from several days to several
weeks

Food successfully pasteurized by
radiation does uot lose its charac-
teristic appearance, taste, or odor,
but does have a longer refrigerated
shelf life, as AEC explained. The
energy — gamma radiation — emit-
ted by radiocobalt passes through
the food, destroying bacteria and
other spoilage-causing organisms.
95 per-
cent of the bacteria asa result of the
ptocess, seafood such as haddock,

Children’s (Factual Test) Corner

Dear Girls and Boys,
Y beard a little girl fromthe C.H.S. play a tune
on the mouth organ. This article from B.I.S., Trinidad, comes in just at

the appropriate time.

Winning Fame With A Mouth Organ
by “The Three Monarchs’’

The mouth organ, or harmonica, is perhaps the most popular of all
instruments with boys and girls, and probably you have all tried blewing
One at some time or other.

But those of you have attempted to play tunes on the instrument will
not need to be told that there is a lot more to it than just blowing and
drawing in your breath.

Study Music

le does not take a lot of effort to learn to play a few simple cunes. But
one must study music thoroughly to make the most of the mouth organ.

You need only to listen to one of the great harmonica exponents play-
ing a composition to appreciate the beautiful music that can be played with
the correct training.

Despite thorough research, nobody knows who actually invented the
harmonica. It has been said that it was well-known many yeats ago, be-
cause a character in one of Shakespeare's plays exclaims: ‘Place this instru
ment to your lips. You will find its ventricles produce sweet music.” Yet
it is fairly cestain chat the reference was to the “Pipes Of Pan”, a series of
Pipes of graded Jength known as syrinxes.

There are many different types of harmonica, and our own collection is
more than 1,000, ranging froma one-inch miniature model to one more
than five feet long. We suggest that the beginner should start with a modest
model and go on to more elaborate instruments as progress is made.

Ie is a sad fact that some young people are just not musically inclined,
and it is a pity for such a child to spend a lot of money on a harmonica if
he or she ends up by giving it away,

“Personal” Instrument

The amazing popularity of the mouth organ may be partly due to the
fact that it is a “personal” instrument, fairly simple to play and casy to carry
about. It has been called a pocket band and, as such, it is an ideal solo
instrument, (though it also has its place in certain compositions with full
orchestras.) All sort of people enjoy playing the mouth organ, and it is
interesting to note that some famous politicians have been enthusiastic play-
crs. é \

In a book on Abraham Lincoln, one of the Presidents of the United
State of America, Carl Sandburg records how. on one occasion during an
election campaign Mr, Lincoln climbed into an old coach and began play-

img a tune on a mouth organ. j : ;

‘When a companion asked why, Mr. Lincolnjfreplied: “Douglas has
a brass band with him, but this will do me." Douglas was a rival can-
didate for the Senate.

{Years later, President Calvin Coolidge often nsed to play his harmon-
ica in the White House in Washington. According to his friends he had
“more than ordinary ability.”

Don't Borrow Or Lend

When it comes to harmonica groups, we have fouud that it is worth.
while introducing other instruments as well as the harmonica to provide
more all-round entertainment.

The harmonica is still our first love, bue using other instruments such
as trumpets and guitars, has resulted in more appreciation for our harmonica
work—— they provide a contrast,

_ Finally, a tip we always pass on to the children-- do not let your
friends borrow your mouth organ. It may seem mean not to lend it, but it
is unhygienic for it to be passed from mouth to mouth.

Tax Neglectful
Fathers

Sir,

We hear all kinds of talk a-
bout tax. I am a mother and would
like to seea taxon men who do
not upkeep their children, Let
Government tax them hard, give

ten, and get a youth counsellor here
with the balance, to cause. children
to respect theit parents.

My own man never helps me
with our children, and I know there
are hundreds in such condition. I
alone taise these children. when I
am sick they hardly live, and have
no discipline. Put this letter in
your paper and bring it to the at-
tention of Pope John and the poli-
ticians. Make men know that they
must not give women children and
then disown after birth. If am
treated so, and I am a married wo-
man, how much worse are women
treated who are not married. We
help men to make home, shop and
garden, then they take and leave us
sometime for any woman on the
streets. Let young girls take warn-
ing of these things. Instead of one
cent on bananas, let us have twenty
dollars tax a month for every child
abandoned. Government would
get tich in this island.

Tam, Yours truly,
MisERABLE, live in Roseau

Another Echo

Sir, — I too had access to the re-
port quoted in your issuc of the
Heracp dated Feb. 9, 1 mean the
report of the Royal Commission
organised in 1893, reviewed by
“Ancient Civil Servant.” Ie ap-
peared to me that some of the
echoes had a trace of heredity.
While on that subject, I should like
to mention my friend W.S, Stevens,
who is (in my opinion) hardly creat-
ed by publicity sometimes. In that
old report, testimony was given by
Mr. David Stevens, Schoolmaster,



(formerly at Coulibistrie), that he
had difficulty regarding attendance
of children at school; that he did
not send children back for non-pay-
ment of school fees; that people had
difficuly sending children well clad
to school; that patois wasa great
disadvantage in education; and that
books are a great want.

Can he have been an ancestor of
soune-of she money to care the child-_ the present Minister concerned with

education? I jmagine so.
Yours faithfully,
WESLEYITE.

Radio Pronuncia-
tion

Sir, — We Dominicens know we
speak English “with a frenchified
accent” as some outsiders say, but ag
least we should give the correct pro-
nunciation of the lenger words.
What better medium than the radio
for learning the correct pronuncias
tion? Yet our local and regional an-
nouncers do not apparently take the
trouble to look up th: unfamiliar
words in their pronouncing dictiona-
ries. Heaven forbid that we should
call for B.B.C. diction) which is
terrible — - 1 myself like the accent of
our local announcer very much, buy
please Mr. Announcer give us core
rect accents on the Ecorrect syllable,
NOT, as recently, Ve-neers for Ven-
eers, In-vent-tory for In-ventory.
Merch-ant-able for Mer-chantable
and De-fic-it for Def-ici. And
why must we have the horrible
Americanism of Pewmiss for good

Warning—Our Children
in Danger!

Our community teday is sick.
One wonders what is happening-—
Parents ‘seems to have no centrol
over their children. Children are
astray,

Te seems very stange today that
there is nothing happening that
makes one happy— all is trouble
and worries. Are we just to shrug
our shoulders and say “well, I don’t



eres ph

care what happens; I am free!”
What of our children, then?

It is true that our society has lost
its sense of self-discipline and holds
few moral values. Powerful interests
and influences are at work destroy-
ing accepted standards of morality,
and not only that but proper human
decency. Boys and girls are reach-
ing the point where they hardly

“know the ‘difference between Right

poisoned by evil influences. There

are many who are just drifting into
immorality and a life of crime. Are
we not betraying them by letting
them accept these standards? What
are we doing to halt the corruption
of our young people?

The Church, the School and all
kindred organisations must play their
patt wellin order to check such
alarming condition,

In conclusion, I would like to
remind all Parents, Teachers and
Youth Leaders that our lives are 2
profession of our Faith which in-
fluences our children at all times for
good or ill.

London Letter by Graham Norton ‘
Labour Leadership And Social Glass

The election of the Labour Party’s new leader has
thrown an interesting light on the workings of British demo-
cracy. With the office of Prime Minister now of over-ridicg
importance—he is now no longer, as the old saying had it,

“first among equals”, but rather a man standing h ad and dress, illegal in the future. Perhaps MacMillan, especially as he is a Scot,)

shoulders above his colleagues—the selection procedure of

both of the two main parties has been brought under review.
If it had been Mr. MacMillan, rather than Mr. Gait

skell who had died, then the procedure would have been

very different. The Conservative party does not eleci its
Prime Minister —who is also Party Leader.

This is momi-
nally left to the Queen. Of course, Her Majesty does not

exercise her purely personal choice in the matter —she relies
upon advice. For example, when Sir Anthony Eden re-
signed in January 1957 the Queen’s Secretaries proceeded to
sound feeling: many Conservative M. P’s and local patty
officers poured in letters and telegrams to the Conservative
Chief Whip, and this was passed on to the Palace, and the
Queen also consulted Sir Winston Churchill and Lord
Salisbury, and they, both recommended Mr. MacMillan. If
the Conservatives are the Opposition Purty and the leader is
suddenly removed (which has not occurred in modern times)
then it is at least possible that the party might have no offi-
cial leader until it won an election, when the Queen might
be asked tu choose betwcen the contenders for the highest
office.

For many the interesting tuing about the three contenders for the Labour
Party Ikadership—- Mr. George Brown (48), Mr. Harold Wilson (46) and
Mr. James Callaghan (50)— was, apart from their comparative youth (Mr.
MacMillan is 69) the fact that they are all froma working class back-
grcund. Mr. Brown’s father was a lorty driver, Mr. Callayban’s a chief
petty officer, and Mr. Wilson’s a works Chemist.
Mr. Wilson— attended a university, that being Oxtord. For the first-time
for twenty-five years, the.‘ party of the working class”’ as it styles itself will
be led by the son of a worker.

This may not be so strange as may at first appear. For as a- Conservative

__-Prime_Minister_Lord_Balfour, -who-was--also—a—consideratle olar—a
philoiopke: sid long ago, the British party and parliamentary system ‘‘pre-
supposes a people so fundamentally at one that they can ‘safely afford to
bicker” over details. On the foundations of socicty, they are at one. So
that the Labour Party, for all ‘its ‘‘socialism’ ‘has - been par.y led by
men many of whom have: received the traditional education of the British
upper class, which early sets apart, by means of expensive boarding schools
followed by three years at the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge, that
class from the rest of the community. The late Mr. Gaitskell, the E:rl of
Langford, and even the ‘left wing Socialist” —Mr. Richard Croisman—all
share this background with the leaders of the Conservative ard Lib:ral par-
ties. In the leadership ot the latter two, one school alone- -Eton, the most ex
clusive of all the fee-paying boarding schools (oddly called “public” schools
by the British, owing to historical reasons) dominates. This system of seg-
regation by education was left unharmed by the Labour Government dur-
ing its ye.rs of office, when it preached a doctrine of social equality. Those
who have been fortunate enough, owing to their parent’s wealth, to attend
such schools, undcubtedly have many advantages in Britain’s presen? society.
Employers — th-emseives from such schools— are inclined to give preference
to applicants from the same educational backzround. Even form government
service, they have a good advantage -— particularly in the foreign service—
in having been to a “public” school. And, socially, men (for women are
net classed n arly so much by the social standing of their school— there are
far fewer boarding schools for upper-class girls) in Britain are still largely
judged on the school that they attended. The United Kingdom is still a
tribal country. Divided not by geography and blood but by social class.

How is this indicated? Not by scarification of the face as in Africa
or ancient Germany though the accent of the voice is often twisted into
strange soun Js immediately recognisable to the Englishman as a ‘‘class indi-
cator.” And, since the end of the last war, the dress of men of all classes
has giown steadily similar. (Jt was once possible to judge mn by their
head-gear-— a top hat for the aristocrat, a round bowler hat for the middle
classes, the Alat ‘‘cloth-cap”’ for the worker). But one thing remains. A
strip of multi-colour silk- - the tie.

This remaining dash of colour in the Englishman’s sober clothing, his

town uniform of a dark suit and umbrella is also the surviving remnant of

the badges of social class. For, beside ties, sold purely for adornment, for
their attractiveness, perhaps over half the ties sold in England mean some-
thing, They are, in their hundreds of permutations of stripes and cclours
the symbol of regiments, of universities, above all of the “old school.” A
black tie with light blue stripes signifies “I go to Eton.” No one other
than an ‘Old Etonian” would dare.to wear it. Jt commands universal
respect, guarantees its wearer effortless social sup:riority. And all the other
major “‘public”’ schools equally have their ties. instantly recognised by mem-
bers of the middle and upper classes. Special shops, with obsequious p:>-
prietors, cater for the wearer of these ties in London and the provinces.
Their owners will avoid selling a tie to a man who had no proper claim to
it--- ifany Englishman would ever dare to do such a thing.

DOMINICA HERALD





And yet, . . . . the leader of of the Conservative Party, Prime Minis |

tec MacMillan, speaking to his annual party conference last year, called for
the abolition of this “sort of caste system, . . . all this has got to be chang-

ed,” Even Britain is therefore conscious at last of the old fashioned divisions;

in her society. Perhaps Mr. MacMillan wovld care to take a little advice
from the leader of African States, anxious as most of our Jeaders are to
build up “One Nation ” and to rid themselves of those vestiges or «ribal-
ism which hold back national development. President Houbhouét-Boigny
of the Ivory Coast recently made tribal marks on the face, and even tribal

would not care to go so far. Most admirers of Britain would hate to see

the kilt disappear. But at least he could throw away his Old Etonian tie,|

and swear never to wear it again. /

Dames Humble Spartans

Patrick Henry, hitherto nnknown
to cricket fans, shocked Spartans
with match figures of rr for $5.
Winning the toss, Notre Dame
batted first on an easy paced wicket.
Openers Lewis (41) and Austrie
(35) immediately took command.
‘Their partnership was worth 84.
Lewis, usually a dour batsman,
showed a surprising array of strokes,
and though he gave two chances,
his innings was an entertaining one.
The other batsmen, Jno. Baptiste
(36), Norris (34), Hector (22) and
Gage (21) all batted steadily, and at
close of play the score was 243 for
9. Norris isa player of definite
promise, though he is a shaky
starter.

Notre Dame were all out for

Britain And The
Gommon Market
B
J. M. G. ae ADAMS

20 it’s over at last! After sixteen months the negotiations
between the UK and the European Economic Com-
munity have ended in final breakdown, and (according to
opponents of the Common Market) the Commonwealth can
breathe again. What lies behind the collapse, Britain’s bid
to join Europe, perhaps the greatest peacetime ‘defeat’ ever
suffered in the country’s long history?

The story of the efforts made by the nations of Europe
to come closer together, first in economic relationships and
later in political action, goes back to the days just after the
second world War when a number of the nations of We:-
tern Europe resolved that never again would they be driven
to War by national rivalries, either economic of political.
These countries had one thing in common—they had _ all
been beaten in the War, four of them by Germany while
Italy and Germany itself were occupied by the Western
Allies. They all shared a common, interest in reconstruc-
tion, and they joined to promote the European Coal and
Steel community, the European Atomic organisation and,
“in 1956, the European Economic Community, widely
known as the Common Market.

Aloof

Britain held aloof from all this, The United Kuing-
dom was a victor in the War; it was the centre of a mighty
Empire, and in those days it had a Socialist’ Government
with its own formulas for prosperity. It had, or appeared
to have, great individual economic ipower, and after the
Common Market come into being, » Britain : promoted the
“Formation of arival organisation the European Free “Frade
Association. In time this failed, and no doubt provided
one of the reasons why Britain sought, in 1962, membership
of the Common Market. - es



Other Reasons

Other reasons have also been suggested. One is that
Mr. Macmillan wanted to find an issue on which the Con-
servative Party could win its fourth straight election; (the
general Conservative wish to make Britain free once and _ for
all of the possibility of more socialism could be achieved by
way of the Common Market since the resiiction on sovereignty
involved in the Treaty of Rome could rule out many of the
planning measures that a Labour Government might wish
to introduce). Another is that there was a wish to turn
away from the Commonwealth now that many African and
Asian countries were becoming independent.

Those were of course reasons given by the opponents
of the Common Market.

In Favour

Those in favour of Britain’s joining argued that Europe
was the most ‘dynamic’ market in the world; that the econo
mies of the Common Market countries were growing faster
than Britain’s and that a new United Europe could have a
voice in the world equal to America’s and Russia’s. Despite
the higher standard of living, Britain, it was said, would
stagnate if it did not join and its manufacturers did not step
up their methods to compete with the European producers.

The latter half of the statement was widely accepted in
Britain, but as the late Hugh Gaitskell pointed out, Britain
did not need to “join ’em to beat ’em.”

With this background, the Common Market _ negotia-
tions started. These negotiations wére unlike any others that
have ever been conducted on a subject of such tremendous
importance to the participants. One French diplomat red
marked that the delegation of the Six wanted to talk

Common Market
(Continued from page 2)

about working out a grand design for reat unity; the British
wished to seti!e the question of imports of kngaroo meat.

Commonwealth Interests

The British Government, in fact, publicly put ‘the
interests of the Commonwealth” high on the list of things
that had to be “safeguarded”. On the other hand, critics of
the Common Market; led by Lord Beaverbrook and_ the
iExpress group of newspapers said that the Commonwealth
had already been sold down the river. Observers in the
middle of of the road, however, said that the crunch would
come on two points; first, the British subsidies to _ domestic

agriculture-and-secondly the political plans “of General

de Gaulle. 4

Agricultural subsidies are, in genetal, forbidden by the
Treaty of Rome:(which set up the Common Market) and it
was well understood that the £300 million a year that the
British Government pays British farmers in order t> reduc:
food prices to British housewives would in time have to be
stopped with a possibly devastating effect on the cost of food.

In the event, this formidable problem was never settled
for President De Gauile torpedoed the negotiations on more
general grounds. In one stroke he ended the growing doubis
of the British people, as revealed by the public opinion polls,
as to the necessity or wisdom of joining the EEC, and the
perhaps greater coubts of the Conservative party as to whether
the Market was still an election winner. For some months
the collapse had been foreseen by many observers in Britain,
and despite the constant stream of propaganda from official’
government sources right up to the very end, it became more
and more obvious that.the negotiations were going to break
down, more or less: finally. . i

~ Common Market ‘Debate



As expected, the House of Commons last week endorsed the Govern-
ment motion asking it to declare ‘full confidence in'(its) determination and
aiility ...to deal with the... situation arising from the breakdown of
Brnssels negotiations” by a majority-of 103. The Opposition mo-con-
fidence amendment was defeated“ by a similar majority. Commenting on
this the London “Times” in a long leader said ‘ what the House thinks hardly
matters: it is what the nation thinks that will determine everything.’*» Re-
ferring to the underdeveloped countries, the writer went on to say “‘it is no
use buying raw commodities at cut-throat prices it the result is to impover-
ish prospective customers. . Whatever Communism’s fortunes, there
will be no lasting peace while half the world live in plenty and the other
half in huugry squalor. The European Economic Community may not
recognize this truth, Britain must .....”

Opposition Criticism

Mr. Harold Wilson (who was later in the week elected leader of the Parlia-
mentary Labour arty), in proposing the Opposition “tno confidence’’
amendment stronaly criticised the Government’s handling of the E.C.M.
negotiations, saying that the idea put forward by Mr. Macmillan that the
Government was within an ace of achieving a satisf.c‘ory agreement only to
have the prize snatched away by an intransigent Frenchman was a “myth’,
which must be killed. The terms which had already been negotiated con-
stituted “national humiliation.”

Mr, Wilson called for a new Commonwealth Prime Minisser’s Con-
ference “to restore confidence” and he urged that links with EFTA
(the seven) should be strengthened ‘‘until something better comes along.”
(In opening the debate Mr. Macmillan proposed that a meeting of com-
monwealth Trade Ministers in London should be held shortly).

The Leader of the Opposition went on to say chat the Brussels break-
down should not be regarded as a disaster, but they should go forward with
the “Kennedy round.” “Instead of a confrontation with the United States
on one side of the table and the enlarged Six including Britain on the other,
we should have the Six on one side and the U.S. and Britain, our EFTA
partners and our Commonwealth on the other.”

United States View

Mr. Wilson views were echoed officially by the U.S. in a statement by the
U.S. Representative for Trade Negotiatiohs Mr. Christian A. Herter, who
also said: ‘The vast majority of European people and, with only isolated
exceptions the leaders who represent them, realize that the Common Market |
is a European movement and must be opened to all European countries
prepare to adhere to its principals. It cannot be used to serve national poli-
cies.’ Improvement of production and trade efficiency through competi-

Fearlessness
By Mahatma Gandi

Fearlessness connotes freedom
from all external fear—f-ar of

’ disease, bodily injury and deaths,

of dispossession, of losing one’s
nearest and dearest, of losing re-
putation or giving offence, and
sO on. One who overcomes the
fear of death does not surmount
all other fears asis commonly
but erroneously supposed. Some
of us do not fear death. but glee
from the minor il’s of life. Some
are ready to die themselves, but
cannot’ bear their loved ones
being taken away from them.
Some maisers will put up with al!
this, will part even with their
lives, Dut not their property;
othe s will do uny number of
black deeds, in order to uphold
their supposed prestige. Some
will swerve from the straight and
narrow path, which lies clear be-
fore them simply because they
are afraid of incurring the
world’s odium. The seeker after
Truth must. conquer all these
fears. .

One cannot follow Truth or
Love so long as one is subject
to fear. A seeker after Truth
must g.ve up the fear of parents,
caste, governinent, robbers, etc.,
and he must not be frightened
by poverty or deatb.

Fearlessness does not mean
arrogance .or aggressiveness.
This in itself is a sign of fear.
Fearlegsness presupposes claim-
fessness and.peace of smaind. For
this, it is necessary to have
living faith in God.

of life’ by M.K. Gandi}

ERE we are again, approaching the
gay bacchanalia which means
“goodbye to the Aesh” — Carne vale
—fundamentally an exuberance of human
nature before the serious religious abstin-
ence of forty days of Lent.
This festival, born and nurtured in
Latin countries and eminently suited to
the tropical temperament, has changed its
trend in the lands of the Caribbean. In
Dominica it used to be simply “‘masquer-
ade”: opening up a two-day fantasy
world to the inhabitants of this magnifi-
cent criss-cross mountain range which juts
‘up out of a cobalt sea. In such time of
escape and indulgence, nearly everyone
wished to be different than he or she was
in everyday life. The conventional well-
to-do masqueraded as Lapeau-cabwuits
in crocus bags, while the poor dressed in
satin and sparkle-- emperors for forty-eight
hours. Short men occasionally climbed
up on bois-bois (stilts) and thin men
stuffed pillows into blouses and pretended.
to be stout countrywomen.

their kind of humour. — |
But masquerade has. now become Car-
nival with.a side-glance at Trinidad and
the tourist trade, and it is yearly being Im-
proved. Our eyes and ears will absorb
with appreciation what the Improvers
have done to the old folk-festival, in
which the Junior: Chamber of Commerce
and the business community take consi-
derable interest. Donations to carnival
funds, for example, often exceed hand-
outs to charities. The wonderful dazzling
bands will be there, some individualistic,
some craftily advertising popular products;
and “sponsored” beauty queens, who
blushed unséen in the days when we
might almost have qualified, have become
the mode. The festival has taken on a
plastic and sateen gloss and has become
more respectable, more barefaced and_ less
escapist; if we continue to follow the
Trinidad pattern closely enough, it will
become a spectacle rather than an all-out

“practising for carnival”: but this prac-
tice is feckless and without a folk-lore
thythm.

And the sideshows! Ancient people
remind us with nostalgia of the puppet
boxes, the bele dances at street corners,
the'trays of pistache and benies and the
revealed
when ghostly sheets. were stripped off at
Jouvert and long arms, gleaming with
treacly ochre or blueing, reached out to
ze (c d to seize) the Howery
douilettes of the ladies, who all wore

pink-cheeked wire masks with slanting

blue eyes. Nobly plumed Indians, with
mirrors gleaming from their foreheads,
have vanished into retrospect. Everyone
then “ran mask”, and the clang of buckets,
bells and triangles made falsetto sounds
against the tremendous thump-thump of
drums and feet and the concurrent beating
of thousands of excited hearts. One or
two steel bands have replaced most of that.

But everything was not sweetness and
light in the old days, especially when
dusk was falling; it was the moment of
saturation, obstinacy and sometimes even
of revenge. We hope those shady inci-
dents are improved away forever, so that
as Ash Wednesday approaches and the
people of Dominica cool their aching feet
under taps or in the Roseau river, there
will be nothing to regret during the long
prayerful days ahead.

FEDERATION DAY

We aie celebrating today, probably
because of some official oversight, a once:
proud concept of nationh which no
longer exists: the first Federation of the
West Indies. True, the date has been
turned into a shopping half-holiday by
local decree. But the anniversary ts there,
as a reminder and (in some measure) a
reproach. The first Federation failed be-
cause of faulty human relationships and
economics. But many good things were
started in those days — not all of them as
visible as the Federal ships — which bene-

fit us still, So while we regret the waste,
we may yet be thankful to those who
made efforts and even sacrifices in an
attempt to turn polyglot and far-flung
communities into a nation, and forgive
those who made selfish mistakes.

“The lesson is there for the new smaller
Federation: we cannot succeed in federa-
ting unless we admit that the whole is
gteater than the part, and work together
unstintingly toward that end..

letter sent by Sister Mary Alicia,
¢. $.S. A. to the “Catholic News”,
Trinidad—Editor,
Catholic Social Centre
Roseau, Dominica
February 18, 1963

Editor-in chief,

The Catholic News,

34 Belmont Circular Road,

Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.

Dear Sir:

An article entitled “A
Nun’s Story” which appeared
in the January 5 issue ot your
paper, was recently brought
to my attention. This arti-
cle was supposedly based on
my work with credit unions
in Dominica.

The article as it was printed
has about as much _relation-
ship to the Credit Union
Movement in Dominica now
as the man in the moon. It
is extremely out-dated, dis-
torted and presents an extrem-
ly unfair picture ot Dominica

“The Saviour of the Island.”
This simply is not wue an
isa sad reflection on all the

many Dominicans who have

worked so hard for their
Island.

In the second paragraph—
you write, “The financial
needs of families were so
great and the people knew
so little about savings.”
This was possibly the situa-
tion many years ago, but
certainly is mot so today.
Even the humblest person
saviug 25 cents a week is
well aware of the value of
saving.

In the third paragraph—it
is stated that the Credit
Unions here have 6,000
members. At present, there
arte 7,500 members with sav-
ings of $600,000.00.

In the seventh paragraph—
it says that Dominica has
one high school when, in
fact, there are four high
schools here.

In the eighth paragraph —
itis stated that people who
work on estates are paid 75¢
to $1.00 a day. This was
true Io—1§ years ago, but
certainly not today. Wages
for labourers are much higher
and living standards have
improved greatly.

In the ninth paragraph—~

in the first few years of work
here, but none has been done
by me for at least eight years.
Also it is stated that Moth-
et Mary Elizabeth (inciden-
tally, our proper title has been
Sister, not Mother, for the
past several years) was assign-
ed as an assistant last year.
Up until last October,
Sister Mary Elizabeth had
been a member of the Catho-
lic Social Centre Staff for
6—7 years. In addition,
Sister Mary Adele (not
Abele) has not worked with
Children’s Credit Unions
since 19§3—$4. The figure
of $2,000.00, said to have
already been saved by children
in one primary school, is far
too low. Children in one
of our smallar villages have
saved over $3,000.00, and in
Roseau schools the figure
would be comparably higher.

In the tenth paragraph—we

_ have had our own transport

since 1959. Asto “several
ions through dangerous _
waters,” this occurred. only.

d once and was one of. the

first trips I took, 10 years ago.

Inthe eleventh paragraph
—in discussing methods used
to teach the people about
credit unions, I must take
strong exception to the fol-
lowing sentence: ‘Now some
of the early credit union
members are experienced
enough to go with her as
Voluntary assistants in this
extension programme.” I
have not been connected with
the management of the credit
unions here since 1956—57.
Ie has been excellently run
by looal leaders since that
time, and expansion has been
going on under their able
direction continuously.

In the twelfth paragraph—
this entire paragraph is mis-
leading. In the first place,
there are three banks in Ro-
seau and several in other
communities on the Island.
Also, it is unheard of now
to have to pay 100% interest
on a loan, as is suggested in
the article.

In the thirteenth paragraph
-——the statement, “They don’t
borrow much, they just live
in misery” just is not true
here today. Not only do

Boys Brigade Week

Carnival Week is also an important week to the Boys Brigade, and in
the Open Letter published below an appeal is made to all to pause in their
celebrations and give generously to an organis~tion which above all cares
about our young boys, keeps them off the streets and gives them a_mean-
ing and purpose in life. In the soher days after Carnival the B.B, will
still be asking for your help—the week is from Fed vary 25th to March
4th—-please give all you can afford —with a prayer

Dear Friends, CUE
Once again §
Caribbean Boys Brigade |
Week is here. The date §
set is February 25 to March |
4. Over 5,000 Officers |
and Boys of the Caribbean |
will go out collecting dur- ;
ing this week. Although |
Boys Brigade or “B. B.” |
Week is not a National ‘
appeal to the public, but |
rather an opportunity for '
friends and supporters cf
the Boys Brigade to give |
their financial backing,
we feel it best to give the ;
week wide publication.
B. B. Week is more —

important than ever before if the Brigade is to go on advan7-
ing in the Caribbean. We must ensure that we can sup-
port our own training organiser and also be able to build up
company funds for many purposes such as training, equip-
ment, literature and camp.

One of the most outstanding and memorable B. B.
events this year will be the International Camp to be held in
the Highlands of Scotland at Glenalmond, Perthshire,
August 14—22. It is hoped that the Caribbean will be
well represented and that officers and N. C. O.s will avail
themselves of the opportunity of attending truning courses
at Felden Lodge, near London, and Cazronvale near Glass-
































gow.

the needs of the Caribbean with its twin pillars of Discipline
and Religion. Never before in the history of these territories
has there been more pressing need for dedicated Christian
men—a splendid challenge for the Boys Brigade, a challenge
which gives the heart urgency and passion for the spiritual
welfare of our young boys.

B. B. Week enables you to play a part in serving the
Youth of your territory. Last year the response was magni-
ficent, but we are not resting on our laurels, we have fresh
heights to conquer.

I therefore beseech all Officers and Boys and Old Boys,
also parents and friends to give generously and help the
Brigade to further its work of advancing Christ's Kingdom
among Boys.

Greetings and good wishes for a successful B. B.
Week, ;

BULLETIN NO.1

With the commencement of the Fertilizer Credit Scheme we would
like all planters to study seriously the following suggestions: --

I.
= whichyou badly need.
3.

4.

Before signing the agreement for Fertilizer Credit please find out all
the details; remember that Dominica is still in the hurricane zone.
Pay cash for what you can and only take on credit the extra bags

Only buy the amount of fertilizer you can use in a short time, be-
cause unlike alcohol, it does not mature with age.

Make the most use of every pound of fertilizer by using the type best
suited to your cultivation, regatdless of price,

This brings us to the type of fertilize: to use. No matter what comb‘na-
tion of fertilizers we may use, we must constantly observe the type of bunch of
bananas we produce, because no single recommendation can possibly be the

Lest for island wide usage,

Fron our observation and close co-operation

with our Agricultural Officer and Mr. Lionel Smith, Banana Agronomist,
we can all eventually discover che fertilizers best suited to each area.
The following is a basic recommendation:~ ~

I.

Potash (K): e.g,

Plant with 8 ozs. Triple Superphosphate in the hole.

After weeding, at about 6 weeks apply, to each mat 1 tb of Sulphate
Ammonia or a mixed fertilizer high in Nitrogen, e.g. 10- 8-4.

Three months afterwards apply 1 1b. per mat of a fertilizer high iu
12-8224 Of 12-12-30,

Desucker all unproductive suckers, especially those “peepers” which

always make water suckers,
But do remember,

before they have time of absorb any fertilizer.
Any credit scheme is like dynamite: used caut-

tiously it is wonderful, but reck'essly it can blow up in your face.

The Executive Committee of the Dominica Agricultural Society asks
those interested in this Society to help them choose a motto for the Society.
It should embody the objects of the Society, which read as follow:—

“The object of the Society shall be the dessemination of agricultural

knowledge,

branches of agriculture in the Colony,

and the consideration, encouragement and advancement of all

and of all matters and things incid-

ental or appertaining thereto, in such manner as the Committee shall think

advisable.”

All suggestions should be addressed:—.to E L, Honeychurch, Hon.

Issued By
Minister For Labour And Soc-
ial Services :
‘Tith February, 1963

The Dominica Chronicle of Wed-
nesday 6th February last contains
the following report as part of a
speech which Hon. E. B. Henry
made in Roseau on the night of
February 1, 1963 ata Dominica
United Peoples’ Party political
meeting: “‘He condemned Mr. Stevens
for lying a lie’* ‘*by stating that
teacher bursaries were existent, but
unused during the time of the last
govt, when it was only during the
time of the present government that
Commonwealth Education Institute
had decided bursaries were granted’’.

In the first place the Honourable
Member o f t he Opposition Mr.
Elkin Henry is confused and ex-
hibits total ignorance of the various
institutions and organisations in con
nection with the Commonwealth.
There is no such thing as a Com-
monwealth Education Institute in
Britain. There is a Commonwealth
Institute, which is a different organ-
isation ftom The Commonwealth
Teacher Training Bursary Scheme.
This Scheme was a result of the
Commonwealth Education Confer-
ence held for the first time at Oxford
in 1959.

In a despatch of August 1960
with which Mr. Henry is fully ac-
quainted, mention is made of 308
teacher students from dependent terri-
tories. Dominica was not then in-
cluded. Notice was also then given
that application forms for the 196x

It is the solemn duty of a ministry
to make sure that people who pay
taxes and have to vote set “the truth

Henry may now wish to apologise
to the public and make a correction
for the benefit ofthe public of
Dominica, his party, his audience
and himself.

U.S. To Preserve
Food Through
Radiation

NEW YORK, January 30---The U-
S. Atomic Energy Commission
(AEC), will seek to demonstrate the
technical and economic feasibility of
preserving fish products through radi-
ation,

An irradiator 1s being built by
the Commission as part of its ra-
diation-pasteurized foods program.
This program is directed toward ex-
tending the refrigerated storage life
of fresh products, such as fish and
fruits, from several days to several
weeks

Food successfully pasteurized by
radiation does uot lose its charac-
teristic appearance, taste, or odor,
but does have a longer refrigerated
shelf life, as AEC explained. The
energy — gamma radiation — emit-
ted by radiocobalt passes through
the food, destroying bacteria and
other spoilage-causing organisms.
95 per-
cent of the bacteria asa result of the
ptocess, seafood such as haddock,
clams, or shtimp can be kept in
ocean-fresh condition for over four
weeks under normal reftigeration.

Children’s (Factual Test) Corner

Dear Girls and Boys,
Y beard a little girl fromthe C.H.S. play a tune
on the mouth organ. This article from B.I.S., Trinidad, comes in just at

the appropriate time.

Winning Fame With A Mouth Organ
by “The Three Monarchs’’

The mouth organ, or harmonica, is perhaps the most popular of all
instruments with boys and girls, and probably you have all tried blewing
One at some time or other.

But those of you have attempted to play tunes on the instrument will
not need to be told that there is a lot more to it than just blowing and
drawing in your breath.

Study Music

le does not take a lot of effort to learn to play a few simple cunes. But
one must study music thoroughly to make the most of the mouth organ.

You need only to listen to one of the great harmonica exponents play-
ing a composition to appreciate the beautiful music that can be played with
the correct training.

Despite thorough research, nobody knows who actually invented the
harmonica. It has been said that it was well-known many yeats ago, be-
cause a character in one of Shakespeare's plays exclaims: ‘Place this instru
ment to your lips. You will find its ventricles produce sweet music.” Yet
it is fairly cestain chat the reference was to the “Pipes Of Pan”, a series of
Pipes of graded Jength known as syrinxes.

There are many different types of harmonica, and our own collection is
more than 1,000, ranging froma one-inch miniature model to one more
than five feet long. We suggest that the beginner should start with a modest
model and go on to more elaborate instruments as progress is made.

Ie is a sad fact that some young people are just not musically inclined,
and it is a pity for such a child to spend a lot of money on a harmonica if
he or she ends up by giving it away,

“Personal” Instrument

The amazing popularity of the mouth organ may be partly due to the
fact that it is a “personal” instrument, fairly simple to play and casy to carry
about. It has been called a pocket band and, as such, it is an ideal solo
instrument, (though it also has its place in certain compositions with full
orchestras.) All sort of people enjoy playing the mouth organ, and it is
interesting to note that some famous politicians have been enthusiastic play-
crs. é \

In a book on Abraham Lincoln, one of the Presidents of the United
State of America, Carl Sandburg records how. on one occasion during an
election campaign Mr, Lincoln climbed into an old coach and began play-

img a tune on a mouth organ. j : ;

‘When a companion asked why, Mr. Lincolnjfreplied: “Douglas has
a brass band with him, but this will do me." Douglas was a rival can-
didate for the Senate.

{Years later, President Calvin Coolidge often nsed to play his harmon-
ica in the White House in Washington. According to his friends he had
“more than ordinary ability.”

Don't Borrow Or Lend

When it comes to harmonica groups, we have fouud that it is worth.
while introducing other instruments as well as the harmonica to provide
more all-round entertainment.

The harmonica is still our first love, bue using other instruments such
as trumpets and guitars, has resulted in more appreciation for our harmonica
work—— they provide a contrast,

_ Finally, a tip we always pass on to the children-- do not let your
friends borrow your mouth organ. It may seem mean not to lend it, but it
is unhygienic for it to be passed from mouth to mouth.

Cherio, till next week, Love from Auntic Fran,
This week’s questions are as follows:— ae

ganizations.
the credit unions give small
loans that are within the
the reach of everyone, but
the banks do as well.

In the last paragraph-—it is
stated that I was instrumen-
tal in starting Family Fast
Day in England. Again,
this is not true. Dominica

Board of Catholic Women

cause of Dominica’s mem-

a gross insult to Dominica

who have and are working
so hard to improve the living

Tax Neglectful
Fathers

Sir,

We hear all kinds of talk a-
bout tax. I am a mother and would
like to seea taxon men who do
not upkeep their children, Let
Government tax them hard, give

ten, and get a youth counsellor here
with the balance, to cause. children
to respect theit parents.

My own man never helps me
with our children, and I know there
are hundreds in such condition. I
alone taise these children. when I
am sick they hardly live, and have
no discipline. Put this letter in
your paper and bring it to the at-
tention of Pope John and the poli-
ticians. Make men know that they
must not give women children and
then disown after birth. If am
treated so, and I am a married wo-
man, how much worse are women
treated who are not married. We
help men to make home, shop and
garden, then they take and leave us
sometime for any woman on the
streets. Let young girls take warn-
ing of these things. Instead of one
cent on bananas, let us have twenty
dollars tax a month for every child
abandoned. Government would
get tich in this island.

Tam, Yours truly,
MisERABLE, live in Roseau
back-yard,

Another Echo

Sir, — I too had access to the re-
port quoted in your issuc of the
Heracp dated Feb. 9, 1 mean the
report of the Royal Commission
organised in 1893, reviewed by
“Ancient Civil Servant.” Ie ap-
peared to me that some of the
echoes had a trace of heredity.
While on that subject, I should like
to mention my friend W.S, Stevens,
who is (in my opinion) hardly creat-
ed by publicity sometimes. In that
old report, testimony was given by
Mr. David Stevens, Schoolmaster,



(formerly at Coulibistrie), that he
had difficulty regarding attendance
of children at school; that he did
not send children back for non-pay-
ment of school fees; that people had
difficuly sending children well clad
to school; that patois wasa great
disadvantage in education; and that
books are a great want.

Can he have been an ancestor of
soune-of she money to care the child-_ the present Minister concerned with

education? I jmagine so.
Yours faithfully,
WESLEYITE.

Radio Pronuncia-
tion

Sir, — We Dominicens know we
speak English “with a frenchified
accent” as some outsiders say, but ag
least we should give the correct pro-
nunciation of the lenger words.
What better medium than the radio
for learning the correct pronuncias
tion? Yet our local and regional an-
nouncers do not apparently take the
trouble to look up th: unfamiliar
words in their pronouncing dictiona-
ries. Heaven forbid that we should
call for B.B.C. diction) which is
terrible — - 1 myself like the accent of
our local announcer very much, buy
please Mr. Announcer give us core
rect accents on the Ecorrect syllable,
NOT, as recently, Ve-neers for Ven-
eers, In-vent-tory for In-ventory.
Merch-ant-able for Mer-chantable
and De-fic-it for Def-ici. And
why must we have the horrible
Americanism of Pewmiss for good
old-fashioned Pumice to rhyme with
rum! Thanks for space,
Purist, Roseau.

Warning—Our Children
in Danger!

Our community teday is sick.
One wonders what is happening-—
Parents ‘seems to have no centrol
over their children. Children are
astray,

Te seems very stange today that
there is nothing happening that
makes one happy— all is trouble
and worries. Are we just to shrug
our shoulders and say “well, I don’t



eres ph

care what happens; I am free!”
What of our children, then?

It is true that our society has lost
its sense of self-discipline and holds
few moral values. Powerful interests
and influences are at work destroy-
ing accepted standards of morality,
and not only that but proper human
decency. Boys and girls are reach-
ing the point where they hardly

“know the ‘difference between Right

poisoned by evil influences. There

are many who are just drifting into
immorality and a life of crime. Are
we not betraying them by letting
them accept these standards? What
are we doing to halt the corruption
of our young people?

The Church, the School and all
kindred organisations must play their
patt wellin order to check such
alarming condition,

In conclusion, I would like to
remind all Parents, Teachers and
Youth Leaders that our lives are 2
profession of our Faith which in-
fluences our children at all times for
good or ill.

London Letter by Graham Norton ‘
Labour Leadership And Social Glass

The election of the Labour Party’s new leader has
thrown an interesting light on the workings of British demo-
cracy. With the office of Prime Minister now of over-ridicg
importance—he is now no longer, as the old saying had it,

“first among equals”, but rather a man standing h ad and dress, illegal in the future. Perhaps MacMillan, especially as he is a Scot,)

shoulders above his colleagues—the selection procedure of

both of the two main parties has been brought under review.
If it had been Mr. MacMillan, rather than Mr. Gait

skell who had died, then the procedure would have been

very different. The Conservative party does not eleci its
Prime Minister —who is also Party Leader.

This is momi-
nally left to the Queen. Of course, Her Majesty does not

exercise her purely personal choice in the matter —she relies
upon advice. For example, when Sir Anthony Eden re-
signed in January 1957 the Queen’s Secretaries proceeded to
sound feeling: many Conservative M. P’s and local patty
officers poured in letters and telegrams to the Conservative
Chief Whip, and this was passed on to the Palace, and the
Queen also consulted Sir Winston Churchill and Lord
Salisbury, and they, both recommended Mr. MacMillan. If
the Conservatives are the Opposition Purty and the leader is
suddenly removed (which has not occurred in modern times)
then it is at least possible that the party might have no offi-
cial leader until it won an election, when the Queen might
be asked tu choose betwcen the contenders for the highest
office.

For many the interesting tuing about the three contenders for the Labour
Party Ikadership—- Mr. George Brown (48), Mr. Harold Wilson (46) and
Mr. James Callaghan (50)— was, apart from their comparative youth (Mr.
MacMillan is 69) the fact that they are all froma working class back-
grcund. Mr. Brown’s father was a lorty driver, Mr. Callayban’s a chief
petty officer, and Mr. Wilson’s a works Chemist.
Mr. Wilson— attended a university, that being Oxtord. For the first-time
for twenty-five years, the.‘ party of the working class”’ as it styles itself will
be led by the son of a worker.

This may not be so strange as may at first appear. For as a- Conservative

__-Prime_Minister_Lord_Balfour, -who-was--also—a—consideratle olar—a
philoiopke: sid long ago, the British party and parliamentary system ‘‘pre-
supposes a people so fundamentally at one that they can ‘safely afford to
bicker” over details. On the foundations of socicty, they are at one. So
that the Labour Party, for all ‘its ‘‘socialism’ ‘has - been par.y led by
men many of whom have: received the traditional education of the British
upper class, which early sets apart, by means of expensive boarding schools
followed by three years at the Universities of Oxford or Cambridge, that
class from the rest of the community. The late Mr. Gaitskell, the E:rl of
Langford, and even the ‘left wing Socialist” —Mr. Richard Croisman—all
share this background with the leaders of the Conservative ard Lib:ral par-
ties. In the leadership ot the latter two, one school alone- -Eton, the most ex
clusive of all the fee-paying boarding schools (oddly called “public” schools
by the British, owing to historical reasons) dominates. This system of seg-
regation by education was left unharmed by the Labour Government dur-
ing its ye.rs of office, when it preached a doctrine of social equality. Those
who have been fortunate enough, owing to their parent’s wealth, to attend
such schools, undcubtedly have many advantages in Britain’s presen? society.
Employers — th-emseives from such schools— are inclined to give preference
to applicants from the same educational backzround. Even form government
service, they have a good advantage -— particularly in the foreign service—
in having been to a “public” school. And, socially, men (for women are
net classed n arly so much by the social standing of their school— there are
far fewer boarding schools for upper-class girls) in Britain are still largely
judged on the school that they attended. The United Kingdom is still a
tribal country. Divided not by geography and blood but by social class.

How is this indicated? Not by scarification of the face as in Africa
or ancient Germany though the accent of the voice is often twisted into
strange soun Js immediately recognisable to the Englishman as a ‘‘class indi-
cator.” And, since the end of the last war, the dress of men of all classes
has giown steadily similar. (Jt was once possible to judge mn by their
head-gear-— a top hat for the aristocrat, a round bowler hat for the middle
classes, the Alat ‘‘cloth-cap”’ for the worker). But one thing remains. A
strip of multi-colour silk- - the tie.

This remaining dash of colour in the Englishman’s sober clothing, his

town uniform of a dark suit and umbrella is also the surviving remnant of

the badges of social class. For, beside ties, sold purely for adornment, for
their attractiveness, perhaps over half the ties sold in England mean some-
thing, They are, in their hundreds of permutations of stripes and cclours
the symbol of regiments, of universities, above all of the “old school.” A
black tie with light blue stripes signifies “I go to Eton.” No one other
than an ‘Old Etonian” would dare.to wear it. Jt commands universal
respect, guarantees its wearer effortless social sup:riority. And all the other
major “‘public”’ schools equally have their ties. instantly recognised by mem-
bers of the middle and upper classes. Special shops, with obsequious p:>-
prietors, cater for the wearer of these ties in London and the provinces.
Their owners will avoid selling a tie to a man who had no proper claim to
it--- ifany Englishman would ever dare to do such a thing.

DOMINICA HERALD





And yet, . . . . the leader of of the Conservative Party, Prime Minis |

tec MacMillan, speaking to his annual party conference last year, called for
the abolition of this “sort of caste system, . . . all this has got to be chang-

ed,” Even Britain is therefore conscious at last of the old fashioned divisions;

in her society. Perhaps Mr. MacMillan wovld care to take a little advice
from the leader of African States, anxious as most of our Jeaders are to
build up “One Nation ” and to rid themselves of those vestiges or «ribal-
ism which hold back national development. President Houbhouét-Boigny
of the Ivory Coast recently made tribal marks on the face, and even tribal

would not care to go so far. Most admirers of Britain would hate to see

the kilt disappear. But at least he could throw away his Old Etonian tie,|

and swear never to wear it again. /

Dames Humble Spartans

Patrick Henry, hitherto nnknown
to cricket fans, shocked Spartans
with match figures of rr for $5.
Winning the toss, Notre Dame
batted first on an easy paced wicket.
Openers Lewis (41) and Austrie
(35) immediately took command.
‘Their partnership was worth 84.
Lewis, usually a dour batsman,
showed a surprising array of strokes,
and though he gave two chances,
his innings was an entertaining one.
The other batsmen, Jno. Baptiste
(36), Norris (34), Hector (22) and
Gage (21) all batted steadily, and at
close of play the score was 243 for
9. Norris isa player of definite
promise, though he is a shaky
starter.

Notre Dame were all out for
267 next day. By far the best
bowler for. Spartans was batsman
Irving Shillingford, who | finished.
with 4 for 22. Sealy alone’ of. the
other bowlers made any impression
