Biggest Pageant -- A Funeral

Te pre-Lenten fiesta began on a high note, colourful if

not too musical. On Monday morning all the town
and half of the countryside seemed to have turned out,
dressed in gala carnival costumes. By 3.30 that afternoon
some of the Jaughing dancers and spectators were witnesses
of the horrifying spectacle of three young men being virtu-
ally roasted in the street by sudden incendiarism, while at
least seventeen others in the throng were scorched and

burned in varying degree, some through heroic action.

Earlier there was no hint
of tragedy in the air, which
hummed with hit tunes and
marching feet. Seen from
a high window in King
George V Street, the beauty
queens in their glamour
costumes smiled from slow-
moving cats; an expensively
attired Coronation process-
ion complete with well-
plumed Queen’s Guards,












Queéa . PTINCEes,
Princesses and courtiers
promenaded slowly to the
strains of “Ru'e Britannia:”
among them in satin and
velvet were members of the
ruling Labour Party. After
this came Mexicans, Span-
ish grandees and ladies, tall-
hatted “elite,” pigtailed-
Chinese, and a gorgeous
polyglot: of good natured
citizens and visitors intent on
enjoying carnival to the full,
including four classically
dressed Parisian ladies and a
gamut of Astaphan adver-
tising sailors. Everybody
swirled, dipped and pound-
ed down the sunny streets.

And Then—The Horror

After the luncheon -inter-
val, when hungry merry-
makers darted into houses
for refreshment or lolled
munching at alley-cornets,
the celebrations took on new
zest and seemed to become
both gayer and louder. There
was a special burst of music
and fun as the Vauxhall
Harmonicats pushed th eit
steel band down the main
street, surrounded by en-
chanted followers. Among
these revellers were three
young gentlemen dressed in
Lapeau-Cabwuit style with







beaten-out ropes, wearing
horns and a nonchalant
effect of holiday vagabond-
age which is still popular in
higher circles.

What happened the n?
There was a sudden scatter
of brilliance like the trick
effect of a Aame-eating fakir
on stage; but the ames
were horribly real. People
scatteted wildly; then they




ing in mortal agony. One
man caught alight, another
managed to strip off his
flaming rags -- a third was
ablaze! Brave hands reached:
out to aid the victims and
received painful injuries. As
a result of this ghastly ; tra-
gedy, Eddie Martin, young
musician with a fine
scholastic record, died a few
hours later; his two close
companions Eric Shilling-
ford, garage and bakeries
proprietor, and George James
(son of Lawyer James in
St. Kits) hovered between
life and death.

In a matter of minutes the
S. M. O., Colonel Foster,
arrived in a borrowed cat;
malefactors are reported to
have slashed Eric Shilling-
ford’s car tyres. The seri-
ously burned were taken to
hospital by various helpers. ..
the victims numbered twenty,
including seven women and

half an hour the entire staff
of Doctors and Nurses, many
of whom were costumed and
off duty, reported to - Prin-
cess Margaret Hospital and
battled for the lives and
flesh of the sufferers.

A Bitter Loss

But nobody could save Eddie
Martin, eldest of four brothers and
two sisters, guicarist son of Customs
official Mr, Louis Martin and his
wife. The two other desperately
burned men were flown, after sccup-
ulous overnight. care,.to the Uni-
versity Colleze Hospital of the West
Indies, accompanied by Dr. Watty
and Mr. Alec Giraud. Mr. Eric
Shillingford had only recently been
married;
leader of the G.J. orchestra.

Thus the second day of the
carnival’ was different

‘burial of Pharaoh” of the previous
day. It was in effect the most
macabre carnival procession ever seen
here, as the cortege approached the
Roman Catholic Cathedral along
streets lined with subdued masque-
raders dressed in all the colours of
the rainbow. The dead youth’s
schoolmates of St. Mary's Academy
and the members of his orchestra
all paid him their last sad_ respects.
Over a thousand people attended
the funeral rites, some still dressed
in motley.

Mrs. Harold Wilson
By P.S. A.

Yes, Harold Wilson has a wife, even if you may never
have heard of her before. She looks like her strong and
simple name: Mary Wilson. She is the mother of two

‘sons, onea student at Oxford University (Balliol), the
other a schoolboy of 14.

Let us have a glimpse of the woman wno ma y one
day be the wife of a Prime Minister and hostess at No. 10
Downing Street. She lives with her family quietly in
Hampstead Garden Suburb; she was the daughtec of a
devout Congregational Minister from Lancashire. The
whole family attends the Free Church in their neighbour-
hood; Mrs. Wilson helps to distribute the church miugazine.
People who know her well say she 1s strong and serene,
capable of meeting whatever demands life or high office may
make upon her.

Tell me what you read, and I will tell you what you
are... What books does Mary Wilson read? She reads
the Brontes and Jane Austen, in particular; and she is also
a poet whose works will shortly appear in a volume to’ be
sold for charity.

When Mary Wilson was a little girl, she moved
around the various counties of England with her preacher
father quite a lot. She met Harold Wilson when ¢ hey
were both young: he was just going up to Oxford. After
three weeks of acquaintance he decided that he was going
zo marty her; they did not, however, get married until after
the last “great War” started, “I thought I was martying
an Oxford Don,” says Mrs. Wilson. But by the time she
was 31 she was a Cabinet Ministcr’s wife.

She does not care to be a public figure, preferring —
home life; but that is not due to lack of interest in politics.
She is interested in ideas rather than in day-to day combats.
“I just don’t like people shouting at each othe tr,” is her

- comment. Music is important to her, as.it is to her elder son,
~"wHo thas already had one OF AAO Maen paroneacrnay coe
isa gifted mathematician—he won a State scholarship. ‘The
younger boy is Lcrd Attlee’s godson. Athis school
Easter concert, Mary Wilson will be singing alto in Bach’s
Passion. :
What are her other likes? Gardening, wa'king, swim-
ming. She knows how to cook, for she only has a servant _
during the morning. In her living room there are fresh
flowers and a holiday photograph of Nye Bevan and his
wife Jennie Lee.
Thus we see a lady capable of every formal duty, loyal
to her old friends and family, unostentatious, a music-lover;
and asI have said- she !ooks like her name—Mary

Wilson.

OBITUARY —

BERNARD A. SEVERIN

The sad news of the death of Mr. Bernard A. Severin
was announced on Saturday last week. Mr. Severin died
at the P. M. Hospital in his 73rd year.

“Bob” Severin, as he was known to his many friends,
was for many years a dispenser (pharmacist) at both the
Roseau and Portsmouth Hospitals and also at Grandbay.
He was a good churchman, a keen footballer and cricketer

- (he represented the island at soccer) and Scoutmaster of the
Portsmouth Scout Troop.

The fune al took place at St. A’phonsus Church and
thence to the Roseau cemetery.

__ The HERALD extends its sympathy to his widow,
children, grandchildren and his many friends and _ relatives.

————————————————————————————————

TRIBUTE TO B. A.S.







A man of outstanding character, Bernard Alexander
Severin died on February 16th instant atthe Princess
Mirgaret Hospital aged 73 years. His varied interests and
activities during that period earned him friends from all
se tons of the community. On more than one occasion
when there was a shortage of Doctors he was entrusted by
Government with the supervision of the Grandbay District
and Portsmouth in particular. He was popularly known
as “Bob” Severin and as lis‘encrs heard on the air on the
day of his death he was certainly a defender of the faith, He
was a keen sportsman and also indulged in fishing and kept
a keen interest in Scouting; because he had been so keen on
scouting activities he organised a Scout’Troop in Port s-
mouth. His greatness, to: my mind, as was broadcast was
not merely his richly-earned ‘‘d:fender of the Faith” but his
role as friend to one and a hile it is not.a questio

encouragement to the hope, not that
dogmatic barriers can quickly dis-
appea: but those dogmas which
Roman Catholics share with other
Christians may the more stand out
in perspective. The trend towards
unity goes together w'th the tend-ncy,
without conscious quest of unity, for
different parts of Christendom to be
discovering themselves concerned
with the same tasks and develop-
ments.”

He recalled tivat the lass few years
have seen the Eastern Orthodox
emerging from its long isolation
from the West and ‘entering the
larzer field of Christendom’ — a
symbol of which was the reception
of the Church of Russia into the
World Council of Chucches in 1961.

He believes that the impulse to-
wards unity among the “younge’”
Churches is “very strong’? and cites
the creation of the Church of South
India in 1947, when various non-
Episcopal churches unt:d with an
Episcopal church on the basis of the
historic episcopate, creeds and sacra-
ments. (81S)

A Message Of Sympathy |
ana Gondolence

To The Gitizens Of Roseaiu Oa The
Occasion Of The Calamitous Incid-
ent Of Garnival Monday

My dear Citizens; —On behalf of the Roseau Town!
Council, and on behalf of my wife and myself, I wish to:
extend to the numerous relatives and friends of all those:
who suffered from _ the calamitous incident of Carnival
Monday, the deepest sympathy and Christian condolence
of the City Fathers.

Doubtless, you all know only too well, that s uc hj
incidents are entirely be yond _ our control; but we feel
bound in both sentiment and duty, to apologise for such a
shocking national disaster which has taken place in our
city at a time when it was opened to the peaceful revelling
of our citizens in what is truly, our most pompous and!
demonstrative National Festival.

We cannot help mourning deeply, the loss of young’
talented Eddie Martin and the serious illness of Eric
Shillingford and George James, three young men, outstand-
ing in their respective fields, and whom we all in t is com-,
munity need so very much, And it is with the deepest
tegret that I must mention here, that it will be a long time
yet when our society will be replenished with the contribu-
lions that these men were capable of and disposed to.

This message would not be complete if I did not ‘in-
clude our deep thanks to Mr. John Presnund, an Ameri
can Citizen of Campbell who, in his humane and_ heroic
effort to save the lives‘of our then endangered young man,
suffered serious burns himself and has been hospitalized.

Unify And
Advance --
Caribo Plan



“A sense of urgency and impend-
ing crisis” and the need for an im-
mediate ‘break through’ on the
part of the smaller countries of the
Cariboean were reflected in the dis-
cussioni and conclusions recorded
by the participants at the end of the
Caribbean Oreunization’s 8 day
seminar on Planning Techniques
and Methods:

Echoing this sentiment, Dr. C.
Lastra, in his capacity of Chairman
of the final session, stated “*A unity
of purpose is ne.ded for the econo-
mic development of the countries of
the area on the regional basis,”” and
he call fora voluntary chain of na-
tions in the area for economic coop-
eration in ovder to raise rapidly the
standard of living of the Caribbean.
Dr. Lastra declared that if the
momentum achieved at the Seminar
was not translated into action by
1964, there was a risk of loss of
faith in the future by the peopie and
governments of the smaller countries.

The need were repeatedly stressed,
during the seminar, for regional
planning on an integrated basis as
being the only hope for small terri-
tories which might be unable to
qualify individually for assistance

from international agencies.

The need for a Condominium
of Aid among th: governments of
the United States of America,
United Kingdom, Franer, Ho land
and Canada, for the smaller islands
in the Caribbean, wes one of the
five main poiits which emerged
from Caribo’s Seminar.

Impulse Towards
Church Unity----
Dr. Ramsey

Self criticism. learning from other
Christian traditions, and co-c-pera-
tion, with them is widely replacing
the spirit of rivalry and aloofness.

This view is expressed by the
Archb shop of Canterbury, Dr.
Michael Ramsey, in a special article
in the ‘Finaneial Times.”’

The Archibishop comments:
“‘Not least noteable are these changes
as they affect the relations of Roman
Catholics and others. The visit of
Dr. Fisher, in his last years of
his Archepiscopate of Canterbury,
to Pope John XXIII both symbolis-
ed and elicited the new spirit far
and wide.”

Referring to the VaticanCouncil,
Dr. Ramsey says: “It is too early to
say much of the Vatican Council
except that its first weeks give much

activity occurs. (GIS)

Feeding Your
Baby

Advice To Mothers On
Breas: Feeding
by ‘The Doctor’

Breast milk *s not only the natural
but the ideal food for babies.

Human milk requires no prepara-
tion and is always available at the
right temperature wherever the
mother may be. It is always fresh
and free of contaminating bacteria.
Errors in preparatioa of artificial
feeding formulas are avoided, so that
the chances of Gastro intestinal
disturbances and malnutrition are
greatly reduced.

Among the lower socio-economic
groups or where sanitary conditions
are poor the breast fed infant con-
tinues to have a much better chance
of survival. It has been found that
there is a higher incidence of respira-
tory infections during the second 6
months of life in artificially fed
infants than those who are breast
fed, The incidence of atopic
eczema is 7 times greater in artifi-
cially fed infants.

From the point of cost, money is

better spent providing the mother a
good diet so that she will be able to
nourish herself and the baby well,
than in providing artificial milk for
the baby.

On the whole breast feeding is
a satisfactory experience for both
mether and Child. For the mother
there is a sense of accomplishment
and essentialness for the infants
welfare and for the baby good
health and — contentment.

Readers are particularly asked to
pass on this information to mothers
who cannot read, since these moth-
er’s babies are the ones who suffer
most from wrong feeding—Ed.

Crime And Gare-
lessness

Crime in London reached the
record figure of 214,120 indictable
offences in 1962—8.8 per cent
above the previous year and more
than twice the total for 1938.

Too many people were cateless
with their property, said Scotland
Yard.

Carnival was such an occasion, and
last Monday the majority of doctors and
many nurses of Princess Margaret Hospi-
tal had joined the dancing throngs to
enjoy a break from the strain of their
difficult and dignified occupations. They
were there in the centre of festivities when
the dreadful incident of the haming

the merrymakers of Dominica. Without»

It was a high sense of duty towards

painful burns inthe process; but he was
not the only heroic partic pant who .ush-

Duty brought the Fire Brigade quickly
to the scene: but the job was not for them.

PEOPLE'S POST

In a country which 1acks complete
news reportage, it is an excellent thing
that so many people come forward and
write letters to the Press. Not only is it
a sign of confidence in their newspapers,
but it creates a democratic forum for the
expression of opinion. We have been
pleased of late to note the increase in our
People’s Post contributions, and only
regret that we are not able to print every
letter sent in. It isa sine qua non of
newspaper life that the editor’s decision
is final, but no letter-writer should take it
as a slight if his or her script does not
appear in print. Sometimes there simply
1s not room; sometimes letters are too late
or far too long; occasionally chey are
abusive or even libellous. We would

ask our kind correspondents to study the .

length of the average letter we publish,
and try to keep their wording within that

range.
_ It is good to have correspondence
from all parts of Dominica, and we
greatly welcome news ftom faraway
villages. We know that many corres-
pondents are shy of signing their full
names: this is a pity. If a letter is worth
ptinting, it is usually worth admission
of authorship. But Dominicans seem to
be in the habit of using a nom-de-plume.
They must, of course, always attach their
true names in such cases; these will be
kept confidential.

So we hope that letter-writers will go
on giving us their news and views and
we will try to give them space as often as
possible. They might however avoid
sending usa carbon copy of a letter in-
tended for some other newspaper. We
happen to like original letters--and our
readers do, too.

Choosing The Queen
by Collins @’ Neiil

Dazzling flashlights of cameras, sky-rockets right down to the little
hand bombs marked the choosing of the Dominica 1963 Carnival Queen
on Carnival Friday night at the gaily lit Carnival City,

Hundreds of people turned up despite the threatening weather. A
packed and appreciative audience saw some of Dominica’s loveliest ladies
in their sparkling, dazzling beauty on the stage of the well-adorned Carni-
val City. When MC Coulthard took up his post and the last year’s
queen was presented, the crowd roared. But whether the roaring had at
the time pointed to a seatless throne or the beauty of the first queen, one
could hardly ascertain, though it is my opinion that since a qucen is a
queen whether outgoing or not special provision for her appearance should
be made, thus ridding her of the discourtesy cr standing, back against the
upstage corner, for any lengthy period. Nevertheless, to be a queen one
has to have courage, and perhaps it might have been a test.

The parade backed by part of the G. J. orchestrs, was unusually
done, ina two-way style. First the contestants richly dressed in straight
carnival fashion, paraded the stage dancing to the roadworthy carnival hits.
This was of course a marvellous means of introducing the characters,
Then there was the Whitchurch’s Symphonettes Steel Orchestra, (winner
of the steelband competition) pouring in their masterful renditions while the
contesting queens who had returned to the robing-rooms prepared themselves
in queenly beauty.

Whilst the queens changed, the audience were entertained by calyp-
onians—the “Spark”, winner of the Calypso Competition singing ‘*Eileen’’
and “Back to Africa” and giving some very excellent leg movements,
which had the audience rolling. Supporting him with their mouth-ptece
music were calypsonians, The Saint, The Snatcher, the Idol and the March
of Dimes.

MC Coulthard returned and the beauties were each called out in the
following order: (1) Miss Coca-Cola (Barbara Bully) (2) Miss Agfa Films
(3) Miss Megan Wilson Store (4) Miss Astaphan Shopping Centre (s)
Miss N-E District (6) Miss Salybia (7) Miss Home Industries (2) Miss
Salisbury (9) Miss Ju~c Beverages (Avonell Shillingford) who was adjudged
the winner ofthe contest. From the time this contestant reached the stage
she moved gracefully, well-timed with the music, and of course holding from
beginning to end a golden smile--the only contestant possessing such queenly
qualities, although Miss Coca Cola was deservedly popular and became
the runner-up.

Show Was Good

The queen’s show was good, there is no doubt about that.

_pagree, that-had ihuccnet-beet lapses-onr the past-of —the—pr
ters, .a better show ‘could have been produced. For example, the MC, if
he had been notified about his post in ample time, (let us be frank,) shou!d
have known that the distant audience (or iet’s be more precise, the whole
crowd) found it impossible to see the costumes at close range, unless with a
telescope and would have liked a slow, detailed word-picture of each con-
aestant from entry to exit. A fashion-conscious women might have been
asked to report on each costume. The contestants themselves should have
been better rehearsed to make an effective appearance, the first curisy, the
movement in graceful time to the music and the final curtsy as she leaves

it might be worth putting in a word
for the overseas reader, as now and

Harris, from whom we = are
delighted to hear, is perfectly
right in stating that we have
published little or no _ politi-

that is due almost entirely to
a lull in decisive happenings
or lack of information on

Sixty years ago, when men thonght of flying in| machines in the air
like birds, people who lived then thought it just as impossible,

Today the sight ofan aeroplane in flight cease to be a wonder,
morrow a voyage to the moon will also ceases to be a wonder:—

Before 1903, men had flown in balloons and airships but noone had
succeeded in travelling through space in a machine that was heavier than air.

Two American brothers--- Wilbur and Orville Wright through their
vision skill, courage and perseverance made this dream came true on th
December 1903, when they made their historic flight at Kitty Hawk in
North Carolina.

Early in life the boys showed a love for machines. They were very
patient, careful, and painstaking and never took a step untess they were
sure the theory was quite correct, This care was of the greatest value when
they came to construct their machine. .

That December morning in 1903 was very cold and a strong Icy
wind was blowing. The brothers drew it from its shed and fixed it on
a wooden rail made in such a way so as to give the machine its first push

POEVS CORNER
SALISBURY

‘Twas cricket that we went to play, and everything went well;

It is my body that returned, my thoughts in Salisbury dwell.

I watched the shadow of a cloud just linger down a hill,

Like that in Egypt long ago that crept, first-borns to kill!

On to the sea! All lands slope downward, everywhere—

The truly broken countenance of Domin‘ca dear!

Salisbury village is my joy, perhaps has always been—

Though I can not (fam a boy) pen the surrounding scene.

I see in Salisbury brave results of toil and industry,

For she was once. not long ago, a plain of poverty!

No less the drought of this kind place has caused some joy to me?

Her humane folks act fair and well, show hospitality. :

My visit there—too short, too short-~I wished would always be. .

Said goodbye to my Lina-friend. .. my heart felt grievously!

Biggest Pageant -- A Funeral

Te pre-Lenten fiesta began on a high note, colourful if

not too musical. On Monday morning all the town
and half of the countryside seemed to have turned out,
dressed in gala carnival costumes. By 3.30 that afternoon
some of the Jaughing dancers and spectators were witnesses
of the horrifying spectacle of three young men being virtu-
ally roasted in the street by sudden incendiarism, while at
least seventeen others in the throng were scorched and

burned in varying degree, some through heroic action.

Earlier there was no hint
of tragedy in the air, which
hummed with hit tunes and
marching feet. Seen from
a high window in King
George V Street, the beauty
queens in their glamour
costumes smiled from slow-
moving cats; an expensively
attired Coronation process-
ion complete with well-
plumed Queen’s Guards,












Queéa . PTINCEes,
Princesses and courtiers
promenaded slowly to the
strains of “Ru'e Britannia:”
among them in satin and
velvet were members of the
ruling Labour Party. After
this came Mexicans, Span-
ish grandees and ladies, tall-
hatted “elite,” pigtailed-
Chinese, and a gorgeous
polyglot: of good natured
citizens and visitors intent on
enjoying carnival to the full,
including four classically
dressed Parisian ladies and a
gamut of Astaphan adver-
tising sailors. Everybody
swirled, dipped and pound-
ed down the sunny streets.

And Then—The Horror

After the luncheon -inter-
val, when hungry merry-
makers darted into houses
for refreshment or lolled
munching at alley-cornets,
the celebrations took on new
zest and seemed to become
both gayer and louder. There
was a special burst of music
and fun as the Vauxhall
Harmonicats pushed th eit
steel band down the main
street, surrounded by en-
chanted followers. Among
these revellers were three
young gentlemen dressed in
Lapeau-Cabwuit style with







beaten-out ropes, wearing
horns and a nonchalant
effect of holiday vagabond-
age which is still popular in
higher circles.

What happened the n?
There was a sudden scatter
of brilliance like the trick
effect of a Aame-eating fakir
on stage; but the ames
were horribly real. People
scatteted wildly; then they




ing in mortal agony. One
man caught alight, another
managed to strip off his
flaming rags -- a third was
ablaze! Brave hands reached:
out to aid the victims and
received painful injuries. As
a result of this ghastly ; tra-
gedy, Eddie Martin, young
musician with a fine
scholastic record, died a few
hours later; his two close
companions Eric Shilling-
ford, garage and bakeries
proprietor, and George James
(son of Lawyer James in
St. Kits) hovered between
life and death.

In a matter of minutes the
S. M. O., Colonel Foster,
arrived in a borrowed cat;
malefactors are reported to
have slashed Eric Shilling-
ford’s car tyres. The seri-
ously burned were taken to
hospital by various helpers. ..
the victims numbered twenty,
including seven women and

half an hour the entire staff
of Doctors and Nurses, many
of whom were costumed and
off duty, reported to - Prin-
cess Margaret Hospital and
battled for the lives and
flesh of the sufferers.

A Bitter Loss

But nobody could save Eddie
Martin, eldest of four brothers and
two sisters, guicarist son of Customs
official Mr, Louis Martin and his
wife. The two other desperately
burned men were flown, after sccup-
ulous overnight. care,.to the Uni-
versity Colleze Hospital of the West
Indies, accompanied by Dr. Watty
and Mr. Alec Giraud. Mr. Eric
Shillingford had only recently been
married;
leader of the G.J. orchestra.

Thus the second day of the
carnival’ was different

nificence the carnival
‘burial of Pharaoh” of the previous
day. It was in effect the most
macabre carnival procession ever seen
here, as the cortege approached the
Roman Catholic Cathedral along
streets lined with subdued masque-
raders dressed in all the colours of
the rainbow. The dead youth’s
schoolmates of St. Mary's Academy
and the members of his orchestra
all paid him their last sad_ respects.
Over a thousand people attended
the funeral rites, some still dressed
in motley.

Witness Collapses

Copeland in the Magistrate’s court
dunng a hearing of the adjourned
inquest yesterday, witness Ena Joseph
of New Street collapsed and the
inquest was further postponed until
Thursday March 7. Miss Joseph,

Margaret Hospital as a casualty after
the burning incident, was being

PAGE TWO DOMINICA HERALD

Mrs. Harold Wilson
By P.S. A.

Yes, Harold Wilson has a wife, even if you may never
have heard of her before. She looks like her strong and
simple name: Mary Wilson. She is the mother of two

‘sons, onea student at Oxford University (Balliol), the
other a schoolboy of 14.

Let us have a glimpse of the woman wno ma y one
day be the wife of a Prime Minister and hostess at No. 10
Downing Street. She lives with her family quietly in
Hampstead Garden Suburb; she was the daughtec of a
devout Congregational Minister from Lancashire. The
whole family attends the Free Church in their neighbour-
hood; Mrs. Wilson helps to distribute the church miugazine.
People who know her well say she 1s strong and serene,
capable of meeting whatever demands life or high office may
make upon her.

Tell me what you read, and I will tell you what you
are... What books does Mary Wilson read? She reads
the Brontes and Jane Austen, in particular; and she is also
a poet whose works will shortly appear in a volume to’ be
sold for charity.

When Mary Wilson was a little girl, she moved
around the various counties of England with her preacher
father quite a lot. She met Harold Wilson when ¢ hey
were both young: he was just going up to Oxford. After
three weeks of acquaintance he decided that he was going
zo marty her; they did not, however, get married until after
the last “great War” started, “I thought I was martying
an Oxford Don,” says Mrs. Wilson. But by the time she
was 31 she was a Cabinet Ministcr’s wife.

She does not care to be a public figure, preferring —
home life; but that is not due to lack of interest in politics.
She is interested in ideas rather than in day-to day combats.
“I just don’t like people shouting at each othe tr,” is her

- comment. Music is important to her, as.it is to her elder son,
~"wHo thas already had one OF AAO Maen paroneacrnay coe
isa gifted mathematician—he won a State scholarship. ‘The
younger boy is Lcrd Attlee’s godson. Athis school
Easter concert, Mary Wilson will be singing alto in Bach’s
Passion. :
What are her other likes? Gardening, wa'king, swim-
ming. She knows how to cook, for she only has a servant _
during the morning. In her living room there are fresh
flowers and a holiday photograph of Nye Bevan and his
wife Jennie Lee.
Thus we see a lady capable of every formal duty, loyal
to her old friends and family, unostentatious, a music-lover;
and asI have said- she !ooks like her name—Mary

Wilson.

OBITUARY —

BERNARD A. SEVERIN

The sad news of the death of Mr. Bernard A. Severin
was announced on Saturday last week. Mr. Severin died
at the P. M. Hospital in his 73rd year.

“Bob” Severin, as he was known to his many friends,
was for many years a dispenser (pharmacist) at both the
Roseau and Portsmouth Hospitals and also at Grandbay.
He was a good churchman, a keen footballer and cricketer

- (he represented the island at soccer) and Scoutmaster of the
Portsmouth Scout Troop.

The fune al took place at St. A’phonsus Church and
thence to the Roseau cemetery.

__ The HERALD extends its sympathy to his widow,
children, grandchildren and his many friends and _ relatives.

————————————————————————————————

TRIBUTE TO B. A.S.







A man of outstanding character, Bernard Alexander
Severin died on February 16th instant atthe Princess
Mirgaret Hospital aged 73 years. His varied interests and
activities during that period earned him friends from all
se tons of the community. On more than one occasion
when there was a shortage of Doctors he was entrusted by
Government with the supervision of the Grandbay District
and Portsmouth in particular. He was popularly known
as “Bob” Severin and as lis‘encrs heard on the air on the
day of his death he was certainly a defender of the faith, He
was a keen sportsman and also indulged in fishing and kept

encouragement to the hope, not that
dogmatic barriers can quickly dis-

Roman Catholics share with other
Christians may the more stand out

unity goes together w'th the tend-ncy,
without conscious quest of unity, for
different parts of Christendom to be
discovering themselves concerned
with the same tasks and develop-

A Message Of Sympathy |
ana Gondolence

To The Gitizens Of Roseaiu Oa The
Occasion Of The Calamitous Incid-
ent Of Garnival Monday

My dear Citizens; —On behalf of the Roseau Town!
Council, and on behalf of my wife and myself, I wish to:
extend to the numerous relatives and friends of all those:
who suffered from _ the calamitous incident of Carnival
Monday, the deepest sympathy and Christian condolence
of the City Fathers.

Doubtless, you all know only too well, that s uc hj
incidents are entirely be yond _ our control; but we feel
bound in both sentiment and duty, to apologise for such a
shocking national disaster which has taken place in our
city at a time when it was opened to the peaceful revelling
of our citizens in what is truly, our most pompous and!
demonstrative National Festival.

We cannot help mourning deeply, the loss of young’
talented Eddie Martin and the serious illness of Eric
Shillingford and George James, three young men, outstand-
ing in their respective fields, and whom we all in t is com-,
munity need so very much, And it is with the deepest
tegret that I must mention here, that it will be a long time
yet when our society will be replenished with the contribu-
lions that these men were capable of and disposed to.

This message would not be complete if I did not ‘in-
clude our deep thanks to Mr. John Presnund, an Ameri
can Citizen of Campbell who, in his humane and_ heroic
effort to save the lives‘of our then endangered young man,
suffered serious burns himself and has been hospitalized.
= ‘Again our sincere thanks and warm congrzetulations}.

Caribo Plan



“A sense of urgency and impend-
ing crisis” and the need for an im-
mediate ‘break through’ on the
part of the smaller countries of the
Cariboean were reflected in the dis-
cussioni and conclusions recorded
by the participants at the end of the
Caribbean Oreunization’s 8 day
seminar on Planning Techniques
and Methods:

Echoing this sentiment, Dr. C.
Lastra, in his capacity of Chairman
of the final session, stated “*A unity
of purpose is ne.ded for the econo-
mic development of the countries of
the area on the regional basis,”” and
he call fora voluntary chain of na-
tions in the area for economic coop-
eration in ovder to raise rapidly the
standard of living of the Caribbean.
Dr. Lastra declared that if the
momentum achieved at the Seminar
was not translated into action by
1964, there was a risk of loss of
faith in the future by the peopie and
governments of the smaller countries.

The need were repeatedly stressed,
during the seminar, for regional
planning on an integrated basis as
being the only hope for small terri-
tories which might be unable to
qualify individually for assistance

from international agencies.

The need for a Condominium
of Aid among th: governments of
the United States of America,
United Kingdom, Franer, Ho land
and Canada, for the smaller islands
in the Caribbean, wes one of the
five main poiits which emerged
from Caribo’s Seminar.

Impulse Towards
Church Unity----
Dr. Ramsey

Self criticism. learning from other
Christian traditions, and co-c-pera-
tion, with them is widely replacing
the spirit of rivalry and aloofness.

This view is expressed by the
Archb shop of Canterbury, Dr.
Michael Ramsey, in a special article
in the ‘Finaneial Times.”’

The Archibishop comments:
“‘Not least noteable are these changes
as they affect the relations of Roman
Catholics and others. The visit of
Dr. Fisher, in his last years of
his Archepiscopate of Canterbury,
to Pope John XXIII both symbolis-
ed and elicited the new spirit far
and wide.”

Referring to the VaticanCouncil,
Dr. Ramsey says: “It is too early to
say much of the Vatican Council
except that its first weeks give much

activity occurs. (GIS)

Feeding Your
Baby

Advice To Mothers On
Breas: Feeding
by ‘The Doctor’

Breast milk *s not only the natural
but the ideal food for babies.

Human milk requires no prepara-
tion and is always available at the
right temperature wherever the
mother may be. It is always fresh
and free of contaminating bacteria.
Errors in preparatioa of artificial
feeding formulas are avoided, so that
the chances of Gastro intestinal
disturbances and malnutrition are
greatly reduced.

Among the lower socio-economic
groups or where sanitary conditions
are poor the breast fed infant con-
tinues to have a much better chance
of survival. It has been found that
there is a higher incidence of respira-
tory infections during the second 6
months of life in artificially fed
infants than those who are breast
fed, The incidence of atopic
eczema is 7 times greater in artifi-
cially fed infants.

From the point of cost, money is

better spent providing the mother a
good diet so that she will be able to
nourish herself and the baby well,
than in providing artificial milk for
the baby.

On the whole breast feeding is
a satisfactory experience for both
mether and Child. For the mother
there is a sense of accomplishment
and essentialness for the infants
welfare and for the baby good
health and — contentment.

Readers are particularly asked to
pass on this information to mothers
who cannot read, since these moth-
er’s babies are the ones who suffer
most from wrong feeding—Ed.

Crime And Gare-
lessness

Crime in London reached the
record figure of 214,120 indictable
offences in 1962—8.8 per cent
above the previous year and more
than twice the total for 1938.

Too many people were cateless
with their property, said Scotland
Yard.

PEOPLE'S POST

In a country which 1acks complete
news reportage, it is an excellent thing
that so many people come forward and
write letters to the Press. Not only is it
a sign of confidence in their newspapers,
but it creates a democratic forum for the
expression of opinion. We have been
pleased of late to note the increase in our
People’s Post contributions, and only
regret that we are not able to print every
letter sent in. It isa sine qua non of
newspaper life that the editor’s decision
is final, but no letter-writer should take it
as a slight if his or her script does not
appear in print. Sometimes there simply
1s not room; sometimes letters are too late
or far too long; occasionally chey are
abusive or even libellous. We would

ask our kind correspondents to study the .

length of the average letter we publish,
and try to keep their wording within that

range.
_ It is good to have correspondence
from all parts of Dominica, and we
greatly welcome news ftom faraway
villages. We know that many corres-
pondents are shy of signing their full
names: this is a pity. If a letter is worth
ptinting, it is usually worth admission
of authorship. But Dominicans seem to
be in the habit of using a nom-de-plume.
They must, of course, always attach their
true names in such cases; these will be
kept confidential.

So we hope that letter-writers will go
on giving us their news and views and
we will try to give them space as often as
possible. They might however avoid
sending usa carbon copy of a letter in-
tended for some other newspaper. We
happen to like original letters--and our
readers do, too.

Choosing The Queen
by Collins @’ Neiil

Dazzling flashlights of cameras, sky-rockets right down to the little
hand bombs marked the choosing of the Dominica 1963 Carnival Queen
on Carnival Friday night at the gaily lit Carnival City,

Hundreds of people turned up despite the threatening weather. A
packed and appreciative audience saw some of Dominica’s loveliest ladies
in their sparkling, dazzling beauty on the stage of the well-adorned Carni-
val City. When MC Coulthard took up his post and the last year’s
queen was presented, the crowd roared. But whether the roaring had at
the time pointed to a seatless throne or the beauty of the first queen, one
could hardly ascertain, though it is my opinion that since a qucen is a
queen whether outgoing or not special provision for her appearance should
be made, thus ridding her of the discourtesy cr standing, back against the
upstage corner, for any lengthy period. Nevertheless, to be a queen one
has to have courage, and perhaps it might have been a test.

The parade backed by part of the G. J. orchestrs, was unusually
done, ina two-way style. First the contestants richly dressed in straight
carnival fashion, paraded the stage dancing to the roadworthy carnival hits.
This was of course a marvellous means of introducing the characters,
Then there was the Whitchurch’s Symphonettes Steel Orchestra, (winner
of the steelband competition) pouring in their masterful renditions while the
contesting queens who had returned to the robing-rooms prepared themselves
in queenly beauty.

Whilst the queens changed, the audience were entertained by calyp-
onians—the “Spark”, winner of the Calypso Competition singing ‘*Eileen’’
and “Back to Africa” and giving some very excellent leg movements,
which had the audience rolling. Supporting him with their mouth-ptece
music were calypsonians, The Saint, The Snatcher, the Idol and the March
of Dimes.

MC Coulthard returned and the beauties were each called out in the
following order: (1) Miss Coca-Cola (Barbara Bully) (2) Miss Agfa Films
(3) Miss Megan Wilson Store (4) Miss Astaphan Shopping Centre (s)
Miss N-E District (6) Miss Salybia (7) Miss Home Industries (2) Miss
Salisbury (9) Miss Ju~c Beverages (Avonell Shillingford) who was adjudged
the winner ofthe contest. From the time this contestant reached the stage
she moved gracefully, well-timed with the music, and of course holding from
beginning to end a golden smile--the only contestant possessing such queenly
qualities, although Miss Coca Cola was deservedly popular and became
the runner-up.

Show Was Good

The queen’s show was good, there is no doubt about that.

_pagree, that-had ihuccnet-beet lapses-onr the past-of —the—pr
ters, .a better show ‘could have been produced. For example, the MC, if
he had been notified about his post in ample time, (let us be frank,) shou!d
have known that the distant audience (or iet’s be more precise, the whole
crowd) found it impossible to see the costumes at close range, unless with a
telescope and would have liked a slow, detailed word-picture of each con-
aestant from entry to exit. A fashion-conscious women might have been
asked to report on each costume. The contestants themselves should have
been better rehearsed to make an effective appearance, the first curisy, the
movement in graceful time to the music and the final curtsy as she leaves

Sixty years ago, when men thonght of flying in| machines in the air

Today the sight ofan aeroplane in flight cease to be a wonder,

Before 1903, men had flown in balloons and airships but noone had
succeeded in travelling through space in a machine that was heavier than air.

Two American brothers--- Wilbur and Orville Wright through their
vision skill, courage and perseverance made this dream came true on th
December 1903, when they made their historic flight at Kitty Hawk in
North Carolina.

Early in life the boys showed a love for machines. They were very
patient, careful, and painstaking and never took a step untess they were
sure the theory was quite correct, This care was of the greatest value when
they came to construct their machine. .

That December morning in 1903 was very cold and a strong Icy

Answer (by Rt.

of its powers before the winding
up of federal affairs; matters were
then handed over to an Interim
Commission Meanwhile Federal
Civil Servants have received com-
pensation ranging from $2 to $50.000
(one Federal ex-employee bought a
handsome house in Barbados with
his money).

It will also be remembered that
the Government Party of Dominica
forwarded a resolution to the Gov-

urging nonpayment of compensation

SALISBURY

‘Twas cricket that we went to play, and everything went well;

It is my body that returned, my thoughts in Salisbury dwell.

I watched the shadow of a cloud just linger down a hill,

Like that in Egypt long ago that crept, first-borns to kill!

On to the sea! All lands slope downward, everywhere—

The truly broken countenance of Domin‘ca dear!

Salisbury village is my joy, perhaps has always been—

Though I can not (fam a boy) pen the surrounding scene.

I see in Salisbury brave results of toil and industry,

For she was once. not long ago, a plain of poverty!

No less the drought of this kind place has caused some joy to me?

Her humane folks act fair and well, show hospitality. :

My visit there—too short, too short-~I wished would always be. .

Said goodbye to my Lina-friend. .. my heart felt grievously!
