Third Talented Gitizen Dies Of Burns

pores tears of rain dropped from the skies to mingle
with the salt sad weeping of mourners as youthful

musician George James was conveyed in his bier, to lie at

rest in the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Roseau, his bravely

FOUR TRUCKS IN
ACCIDENTS

Four trucks, none of them owncr-
driven, were in accidents this week,
one of them with serious results.
A Coca Cola truck everturned on
the Reigate road and was damaged
without mishap to the — driver.
Another dropped into an open
trench in Fields Lane—no serious
damage occurred. The pylon at the
bottom of Federation Drive was
Knocked flat by a P. W. D. truck
but has now been replaced.

Worst of these accidents was on
the Imperial Road, between Sylvania
and Castle Bruce junction on Wed-
nesday. Here the driver, Frederick,
ran off the road: the vehicle turned
over several times and landed on _ its
wheels. The truck had been
packed with a road gang, including

two women. Nim: persons were. °

felt at the slowness of recovery
of some of the burns. Sev-

never on fire nor even appear
scorched, yet the flesh underneath
is burned ard healing very slow-

Mental Health Association

We are very glad to see that the Dominica Association for Mental
Health is finally getting underway with a well-worked out draft Constitution
prepared for the General Meeting next month,

From the ‘‘Objects” it is clear that
the Association 1s stepping out on
the nght foot — since the primar y
object of a Mental Health Associa-
tion is to educate the pnblic away
from the medieval idea that mental-
ly ill people are dangerous and in-
curable and that they should there-
fore be shut away from the puolic
gaze for the rest of their lives and
allowed to rot away, without hope,
treatment or love. Dr. Hornick’s
work last summer showed how pro-
per specialist treatment added toim-
ptoved conditions could reduce the
number of mental cases in the so-
called ‘hospital’? by almost half in
a matter of weeks.

Emphasis is also laid on the edu-
cation of ‘‘parents, teachers and ot-
hers in the emotional needs of child-
ren” -— a basic step to remove the
ptoblems of juvenile delinquency
found so frequently in modern com~
munities.

Members of the public interested
in this great work, should immedi-
ately get in touch with the Secretary,
Mrs. J.A. Elwin at the Medical De-
partment, Old Hospital, A small
subscription of $2.00 a year is asked
of individual members to prowide

‘calorie+protein' package. retails: at 4¢
(US) and. provides all the’ protein
needed daily by a child.

Many countries including the
United States and Venezuela have
been licensed to produce Incaparina.
Malnutrition in these islands, as
throughout Latin America, is more
often than not due to incorrect food

ing deficiency diseases and opening
the way for tuberculosis.

Well Fed People Gan Pall
Their Weight

“The greatest resources available
in the Caribbean are the people and
if they are to pull their full weight
they must be fed.” These were rhe
words used by the Secretary-General
of CARIBO when opening the first
meeting of the Standing Advisory
Committee of Food and Nutrition
under the Caribbean Plan, last Nov-
ember.

SACFAN had before it a pro-
posal from WHO-PAHO 0 set
up a Caribbean Nutrition Institute—

* to carryout fundamental and
applied research in nutrition

* to wain personnel at all levels
in aspects of nutrition

* to educate the public

* to give technical assistance to
countries in the area. The com-
munity novtrition programme now
underway in St. Lucia was cited as
a model for other countries to adopt

do ‘hereby’ give. you ‘notice that it is

ayear. Malnourished babies are
especially vulnerable to the lack of
hygiene; bacteria loads their food
and germs are passed to the children
by people with dirty hands. Many
things are required-- more and bet-
ter food, better housing, abundant
pure water, sanitaty toilet facilities. a
high level of health education, puri-
fying milk and education of mothers
in the proper care of babies are ex~
amples given by Dr. Sabin,

The doctor proposes the develop-
ment of a milk substitute for use after
weaning which would contain an
anti-biotic able to reduce the growth
of bacteria due to contamination.

Maiden Speeches Applauded
Dawbiney Literary Club
Mr. C. A. Shillingford on “Why Sociology,” and



Boys and Giris in
Dominica

By
Herald Literary Club



Mr, J.N. Johnson on “Weapons of Mass Media—P ress, Reporter

Radio, Cinema” delivered maiden speeches at a meeting of

the Dawbiney Literary Club on Thursday the 7th instant.

Sociology, stat:d Mr. C. A. Shillingford, is the scien-
tific study of patterned shared human behavior. The
social behaviour of human beings—the way in which people
act towards one another in their social relations has always
been an interesting subject of study and has therefore been
observed and described by many _ historians, politicians,
poets, novelists and philosophers.

Sociology, he continued, may be studied for its own
sake purely as an academic pursuit, because one might
want to know more about society and culture. A know-
ledge of sociology enriches one’s mind gives onea more
thorough understanding of ot her people and provides a
satisfactorily objective judgement concerning one’s fellow
men. The last point is of particular importance, he said,
“because people are often too quick to pass judgement on
others without duly weighing the evidence.

Sociological study, he concluded, lends itself to help-
ing the individual and his society achieve results in terms
of better social relations. The more prominent and influ-
ential a person expects to be, the more useful and import:
ant will sociological knowledge be for him.

“The press, radio and cinema are ostensibly media of

mass propaganda which is the expression of opinion or
action by individuals or groups deliberately designed to
influence opinions or actions of other individuals or groups
with reference to predetermined ends. People are fooled or
_ deceived by multifarious, propaganda devices because ‘they
eit emotions father than to theif treason.
make us believe and do something we would. not believe or
do if we thought about it calmly, dispassionately,” declared
schoolboy-member of the Club J.N N. Johnson.

After showing the way in which the individual and
public can be manipulated by those who have access to
‘mass media: and the effect of the press, radio and cinema
on public opinion, elections and juvenile delinquency, he
then showed how the press (through its editorials especial-

-ly) can influence the decision of statesmen and cause them
sometimes to act ‘irrationally and irresponsibly.’

Qa

“In the Soviet-Communist concept, the mass media
have clear and explicit mandates as to their primary objec-
tives. Above all they are committed to carrying Com-
munist theory and policy to the masses, rallying support for
the party and government and raising the general cultural
level of the people. To achieve these aims the party and
government exercise relatively strict control over the media
and their operation. Butin the libertarian theory which
dominates the Anglo-American and many western coun-
tries emphasis is upon the freedom of the media of mass
communication, especially from government control.
Therefore in the Communist Countties the press radio and
cinema are more potent weapons of propaganda for the
government,” Mr. J. Johnson concluded.

A lively discussion ensued before Chairman A-
Lazare congratulated the Maiden Speakers on their talks,
which he said were of a “higher than anticipated stan d-
ard.”

Elections heild immediately afterwards brought in
only one new member— Miss Yolanda Savarin- on the
Executive Committee. Mr. O. A. Lawrence—President;
B. St. C. Roberts-—Vice Pres, J. A. Barzey--Treasurer,
A. Leevy — Secretary (Honorary), A. Richards — Assist.
Secretary, and M. E. John Lewis—Committee member re-
tained their seats.

News that on 6th April the Club will be celebrating
its 12th Anniversary, that Dawnlit Issue No. 3 will soon be
out and that Miss O. Brand B.A. had been expelled from
the Club were significant announcements. — (Contributor)

George Richard, headbov
of D.G.S., C. Riviere, and
T. Dailey of the D.G.S. Lit-
erary & Webating Society
(forming a panel) discussed
candidly and broadmipdedly
the topic “Boys and Girls
Relationship in Dominica,”
at a meeting of the Society
held on Wednesday 6th
March.

The following views were
ventilated in answer to a
number of question put to
the panel by the chairman
Errol Walker:—

(1) Co-education in the
Secondary Schools would
help improve the education-
al standard in Lominica
since there would evidently
be intense acacemic competi-
tion between the sexes.

(2) Tothe average teen-
ager love is a mere infatua-
tion. There is no profound
affection. Many a boy tells
a girl ‘I love you’ because he
wants to satisfy his animalis-
tic desires. This love rarely
leads to marriage | but the
couple enjoy all the privil-
; arrived hte —

(3) The average boy will
not introduce a girl with
whom he is ‘in love’ to his
parents because he fears
that if she presents him with
an offspring, he will not be
able to say “Iam not the
father.”

(4) Many a girl coming
from the country to seek em-
ployment in town finds hes-
self flirting with the ‘hot
boys’ because she wants
popularity and sometimes
‘financial aid.’

(5) Dances are the chief
means of bringing boys and
girls together but it is a re-
grettable fact that some teen-
age dances are organized by
irresponsible people.

(©) lo some cases parents
are (ignorantly) too strict
with their daughters; they
chastize themif they—the
girls—keep boy company,
Paradoxically these self-same
girls when free from parent-
al tutelage “‘make the fullest
possible use of their liberty.”*

About 40 students listened
to the discussion.

POETS CORNER
MEMORIES OF A YOUTH OF PROMISE

“What has he done to die a death like that?”

I ask myself— it waghs upon my heart!

Oh, angry flames that raped a life so young,

You left us but the guitar and the song!
. Deep in my mind how often 1 can see

The symbol of the lad that used to be!

Anxiety, horror, anguish form the theme

In my blurred mind, of nightmares in one dream.
You went ‘n flames: our hearts survive to Sura
That you have passed, no longer to return!

Some sweeter day, should written words come true,
All your own kind shall meet again with you;
And then the truths — mysterious before~-

Shall came to light, and secrets shroud no moce.

interested 1n the citrus industry is doing all they can to produce fruit of the
highest quality for the best price available. - Therefore we are asking all
planters to help the industry overcomie one-of its biggest problems:—






sae “inat, the present: P packing® fruit ¥§ totally
inadequate, but that ean be cured in a relatively shart time, provided. funds
are‘available. Producing emough fruit for this new plant will take many
years and the sooner we tackle this problem the better for all concerned:
On every estate there are citrus trecs growing that produce nothing
or at most only a fraction of the potential of their wonderful, fully develop-

resent. amachinery “for



‘ed root systems. You may’ have seeded grapefruit, sour orange, Gospo, rough

lemon, wild grapefruit and several others. They all possesses a root system
capable of supporting a mature tree whose fruit you can sell for dry cash.

All you have to do is:—

1. Count the numher of trees and note the type of each tree.

2- Take this list to your Agricultural District Officer or your Field Offi-
cet who will thea make arrangements to have your uneconomical trees top-
worked into trees producing a cash crop.

You may have to wait a while before getting yours done, because the
Agricultural Department is now busy topworking trees for all who request
it, but the sooner you contact your Agricultural Officer the sooner your trees
will be topworked and the sooner they will be producing a cash crop. Siart
NOW,

You must realise that a young plant planted now might give you a few
fruit in 1967, but a tree that is topworked today wiil give you a good
crop mn 1965.

Topwork that tree
And you will see
How very far ahead you'll be.

PUBLIC AND HUNAN RELATIONS

{sDUBLIC RELATIONS?” in this

modern world is a highly organ-
ised and often a highly profitable under-
taking, as anyone who has frequented
cosmopolite circles in the large cities of
the United States (particularly Washing-
ton) can testify. Innumerable firms in
the States charge substantial fees for pre-
senting a favourable picture of a concern,
organisation or person through the mass
media of newspapers, television or radio.
Even Britain has gradually become pub-
lic relations minded, Inthe British
House of Commons certain M.P.s are
noted for representing “special interests”
and, notso long ago, a Conservative
M.P. combined his parliamentary duties
with acting as Public Relations Adviser
to the Government of Ghana at a high

oP Bacon eared

edsenior civil servant to England to take
an advanced course, presumably that he’
might better be able to relate Govern-
ment’s achievements to the local popula-
tion and publicise Dominica abroad—
in public relations jargon this is called
“selling” the idea, although we dislike
the verb. On the cover of an excellent
glossy booklet about the Windward
Islands, just published, is a fine photo-
grapic study of our boiling lake, pr o-
duced by the P.R.O.’s Office. All this

is very praiseworthy.

But public relations does not only con:
cern scenery and commerce. On the con-
trary, it should be indivisible from human
relations, and that means that how you and
I and all our acquaintances think, feel and
behave: the unknown quantity. © Where-
ever public relations disregards human re-
lations or tends to assume that property is
more important than persons, or that the
voice of the people is hardly worth lis-
tening to, propaganda becomes sterile and
lifeless. The word-producers may not al-
ways to be blame; they take their direction
or cue from above.

The volume of material received from
the Government Information Office is
indicative of considerable industry. The
releases fall into three categories.

1) Handouts which might be more prop-
erly described as notices or advertisements.
2) Self-eulogies by Ministers of Govern-
ment (frequently taking the form of extracts
from their own speeches) or exculpatory
and defensive statements. 3) Trivia.
Once in a while a significant happening,

ooo

well-documented, is handed in — and

published with alacrity.

If you examine the colourful “Wind-
ward Islands Annual” referrred to above,
you will see that, save for a touch of his-
tory and many names of visiting tourists,
nothing at all is written about the inha-
bitants of the Windwards. This may
of course be deliberate policy; but is it
flattering to the people of the little is-
lands? We of the newspaper HERALD can
at least claim that on our masthead,
before even drawing attention to the
fruits of Dominica’s rich soil, we have
depicted ‘‘The Finest People” in the
matriarchal symbol of a peasant woman,
splendid prototype from whom most of
the. ablest citizens of this land have de-
scended,



Last year Dominica sent a distinguish- To manifest constant concern for the

people is the wisest course for anyone in
Government. Winston Churchill knew:
t his—he was a natural public relations
genius because he :ranslated the word
‘public’ to mean ‘human,’ and was thus
able to draw from a suffering nation
blood, sweat and tears.

When countries are struggling against
odds, it comes naturally to most authori-
ties to put economic things first and al-
ways first. For one thing, material bene-
fits are more yistble. The Social Ser-
vices are usually pared down because
building up the calibre of the people is
a slower and less showy process than
building a road or an office. Concen-
tration on the humanities might not give

~ the P. R. O.s so much to write about at

first, but in the long run the raising of
the living condition and quality of the
ordinary people is the greatest monument
of all.

We are therefore sorry whenever public
relations and human relations are divorc-
ed, and can only assume that the cleavage
springs from lack of empathy at the
source. May we remind our readers of
words spoken over international radio at
a time when the public relations (abroad)
of the old Federation were flourishing, al-
though at home and behind the scenes
human values were breaking up: “It is
useless building airports, accepting ships
and expanding roads if the people who
totter up the gangways or stumble along
the roads are illiterate, ill-nourished, pov-
erty-stricken or diseased. Letus have
fizst things first.”

Afterthought
On Golihaut

Dear Editor,— The tragedy
which shook the island on Car-
nival Monday undoubtedly left
its mark on most spectacors, and

in your



- ourPress..commentators seemed.
to have overlooked somé of the *

less spectacular bands which
turped out this year. .

Asa true Creole, I observed
with the greatest of pleasure that
arather small “old-style” band
from Colihaut appeared in Ros-
eau. What struck me specially
was the cl ck-like precision of
their dance steps and hand move-
ments, the ingenuity of their
palm-leaf costumes so beautifully
pleated and laundered by Nature
herself, and the fact that their
patots songs were exceedingly
catchy and in keeping with the
island wide need for a “‘back-to-
the-land” campaign.

Hoping that these few words
of appreciation will encourage
our Colibaut performers to turo
ont again next year, aad that our
local radio station will arrange
meanwhile to broadcast the songs
they sang to us,

I remain,
Yours gratefully
“Yon Bon Dominichin’’.



Dominicans Are
Too Smart

Sir,

We Dominicans are very
smart. We extract money from
Britain and we don’t owe them any
thanks. We breed like flies, and
don’t have to bother with marriage
and. responsibility. Woe used to
send hundreds of our people to
England, mostly unskilled, some
ctiminals among them. We got
mad when B rit ain called a halt.
Yet we do not want her people here.

We don't even want oar own kin
from the other islands here. We
send fruit and produce to England
and get better prices chan from other
countries. When we want some-
thing more, we yell “Colonialism”

Controversial political letters will not o¢ pub-

in People’s Post do not necessarily
and sometimes ‘Imperialism.’

Dominicans talk a lot of stuff a-
bout ancient slavery and exploitation
of our working people, and they
cheer us. We send our Ministers
abroad with spending money and
they return puffed up with ideas
which they call their own. We a-
buse our best leaders who try to be
tolerant.

Now we are aiming to imitate
Trinidad ac Carnival. We get
Trindadians in to amuse us, and
what does it cost? Look out we
don’t imitate the gangsterism of Car-
nival Trinidad too. Our calypsoes,
are usually dirty.

I would suggest that we try to be
ourselves, decent God-fearing people.
Let us appreciate all who are similar
in their views. Let us be Chcis:-
ians and men of good will together,

Yours truly,
BUSINESS MAN (of Colour)

An Outstanding —
Smear

Sir,

These three words denote what
all Dominican will have been tarn-
ished with unless the culprits of the
trag:dy. of Cacnival Monday ate
identified, tried and pay . the extreme
penalty-~- only then will that smear
whe erased. ene ncaa

Anyone suggesting anything else
but. wiltul murder is hiding .scme-
thing which is vital to identify the
mutderers. © To assist the Police,
detectives and others, it is mecessary
that Government at once offer a
reward for any information which
might lead to the identification of
the culprits and also about anything
observed at the time of the tragedy,
or before or afterwards. Let us
know about:-—

* the liquid sprayed, its constitu-
tion, how sprayed and who made it,

* the individual who ignited the
costume or clothes,

* the person or persons who.
planned and caused the tragedy.

That’s where you Dominicans
can help yourselves. Right NOW —
let every citizen discuss what took
place since someone saw everything
that happered on King George V
Street on Monday February 25th,
1963. That information must be
revealed othe:wise the smear that is
on us Dominicans will linger and
be spoken about in all parts of the
world.

The stain is on YOU if you call
yourself a Dominican.

Something About Goversment -- I
From the Royal Bank of Canada’s Monthly Letter (March)

THE STATE is a community of people whose member
ship sequires them to live under the same code of behav-
iour. To make this possible, they choos: the kind, quality
and quanity of government that best serves their needs
today and gives them hope for tomorrow.

There should be no mistake about this dual function
of government: it must provide what is immediately necess-
ary and at the same time make plans designed to give every
citizen the best opportunity to realize in future the things
he believes to be most worthwhile.

We live in an age when. shabby idcologies promise
short cuts. They take the undramatic realities of society
and sculpture them into images, then fervently str up
followers. They marry selfishness and ignorance, and
breed conflict between races, crecds, individuals and coun-
tries.

Those who live under Western democracy must not
be complacent about their present felicity. They can re-
tain it only if they are alive to the spirit behind the facade,
as much aware of the moral depths as of the material sur-
face features of acrnocracy.

This may be brushed aside by some people as being a
too idealisiic view of government. But a government is
expected to have ideals —as do business, science, education
and all the ocher social facets of-life - or it is not living up
to its responsibilities.

History is, in the main, the story of man’s efforts to
attain the best he can imagine life to hold for him, and to
maintain order so that enrichment.of living may proceed
generation after ‘generation. It is the purpose of govern-
ment.to provide .the environment in which this advance-
ament will be possible.

——Bvei those who flee trom a government. must av ¢

government, The Pilgrims aboard: the Mayfower formed
themselves’ into ‘a. civill body ,politick” before their litle .
ship reached the shores of America. There is no evidence .
within human history to support the idea that a group of .

people can exist without government. For an ex.mrle of
anarchy all we need do is stand at a busy street corner when
the traffic constable has left it for a minures. Automobiles
become tangled as drivers manoeuvre to .get through and
their horns snarl angrily.

Canadians do not look upon the State asa sort of

overlord, but a creature of their own hands — a servant.

The government of the state is placed in the hands of men
and women believed by citizens to be capable of discharg-
‘ing the duties of care, foresight and protec.ion. The best
form of government, they agree, is government by good
men, quauified to.carry out these obligations.

Democracy is not an easy system to maintain and
develop. It must. bring together under one roof two differ
ent ideas: the idea that the state should provide scope and
opportunity for individual enterprise and the idea that the
state should bea collection of public services, satisfying
people’s needs by subsidies, subventions and the like.

It is not pessible for a government to rule without
curtailing some individual freedoms, but it is contrary to
the canons of good administration that it should seek to
compensate for restrictions by providing circuses as well as

bread.

Aims and principles “He who

eome with

ment must have a'ms that are spec-
fic, concrete, and definite. These
differ from country to country accord-
ang to circumstances and environ-
ment, but the ultimate criterion is
this: are the people preserved and
prosperous?

Ideally, once a representative is
elected by the people he becomes
part of government, not politics.
The purpose of a political party is
to bring together people who believe
alike about certain things so that
they may carry their principles into

It has been the experience of
Canada in general to have political
parues with high principles. They
have been made up of men and
women of conviction who to
explain their beliefs in order to win
support, They hive not descended
to huckstering; they have not aban-
doned theic honesty for the sake of
partisan expediency. Our — great
political figures have looked upon
government as an art and science to
be learned, not merely an office to
be won.

In a democratic state the men
forming the government are con-
cerned with representing the citizens.
They believe in the sovereignty of
the people, universal suffrage in
which every man and woman counts
asa person, andthe right of the
majority to rule. The future of
democracy, said a nineteenth century
writer, mainly depends on the will-
ingness of the omnipotent people to
be led by highly trained and cen-
scientious statesmen, and on the
willingness of those statesmen to
serve the people upon such terms as
democracy will accept.

By Graham Norton
(Cour. from our last issue)

There is now therefore an urgent need for more pov-
ero ment spending in Brash universities, colleges and
technical insututions. More classrooms, laboratories and
living accommodation are needed—and more money 1s
required, both to pay for additional staff, and to keep those
that remain. For the problem has extended itself into that

Carnival Monday incident and the
attitude of Government in the same
‘matter. AsI see it three things
went wrong in the police. procedure
of investigations, as follows:—

(1) That the whole band should |

- -have been. surrounded and

the_name_and_ address '_ of
every individual therein

taken down.

(2) Ena Joseph who is alleged to
have said certain things should
have remained under police
surveillance until she was fic
to make a statement before
shehad any contact with
anybody at all.

His Honour should not have
waited unul he got pressure
from more responsible mem-
bets of the community before
he caused’ samples of the
costumes to be dispatched for
chemical analysis.

The next question is that to the
best of our knowledge the Acting
Chief of Police had either been too
shocked or complacent ever to call
in the local C, I. D. personnel to
give any instruction in regard to the
fire incident. Those investigations
seem to have been done entirely on
their own, and it is not too much
to presume, that the best Police
efforts may not throw any light.

We are glad that ‘Scotland Yard’
has been brought down to investi-
gate this malicious crime.

Another strange thing is that we
have heard that Press Reports given
on the first stage of the Inquiry into
the probable causes of the said fire
have provoked a release ftom Go-
vernment purporting to correct what
was stated in The Press Reports

As we see it, those reports did
not seem to involve Government in
any respect, and we are therefore
shocked to realize Governments’
sudden interest in this matter which
did not provoke their sympathy in
the first place to the bereaved relatives
and friends of these who suffered,

May the Almighty God have
mercy on US.

Yours truly,
Fair Play

A TRISUTE

TO
GEORGE AVORY JAMES 71957-71965

Ie is from the depths of our scathing grief that we record the passing
away of our very loving and dearly beloved George Avory James.

His rather early and unpredictable death came during the pomp and
fanfare of the musical revelling of Carnival 1963, an aspect of community
life to which his own was a matchless contribution. One could hardly be
better known and loved in any community than George was here, a popula-
rity which followed him mainly as a result of his great talent and devotion
to mnsic.

Born on August 12th 1937, George at.ended Roseau Boys’ school, and
later St. Mary’s Academy from where he obtained the School Cert’ficate in
1956,

In the following year he joined the Civil Service and was attached to the
General Post Office, until his transfer to the Labour Department where he
was working at the time of his death,

George’s interest in music began at an early age, but most of this went
unobserved until the Dominica Music Fest val of 1951 when we won two
first places in classes 16 and 17 for ‘Recorder Solo’ and ‘Recorder Duet’
respectively.

He saw his first opportunity to reach the top of Orchestration in this
country after the disbandment of The Casimir Bros. Swingtette, when he
proceeded to form the eversince most popular ‘G, J. Orchestra’ which was
named for bim and which he led with distinctive fame both here and in
Anugua.

The only child in his family, George was loving, respectful and
obedient as could be expected of any truly good child, and asa member of
the community he bore himself as was symbolic of a truly born gentleman,

George was recently espoused to Staff Nurse Stella Green, and to those
who knew, they indicated possession of every genuine quality for marital
success and happiness; but that was not to be. Nurse, however was at his
death bed.

To the whole of this community in which he was an outstanding asset,
our loss cannot be soon written off; to his colleagues and friends, he will
long be remembered; and to his parents their loss’ cannot be reduced to
words........ ; ;

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE,... 3



In the.love of There as the love of here,
Think of him still asthe same, I say,

Children’s (Factual Test) Corner

Dear Girls and Boys,

The news these last few days has made us all sad. It
will be a long time before we shall be able to look forward to Carnival as
the gay, care-free enjoyment of years gone by. There are some school
childcen lying critically ill in the hospital— it could be any one of you—
nearly all of you take part in the “jump up” in bands on those two days.
Our three promising young men lost there lives in the terrible tragedy—
two of them promising musician.

It was Carnival Monday—- the bands had paraded the streets. The
Blessed Sacrament was exposed at the Cathedral. There were quite a few
women praying and a sprinkling of men. Eric Shillingford among them.
Father Albert gave the benediction just before twelve. There I saw Eric
walking down the steps in the bright sunshine outside: little did he rea~
lig that he would be catried up those same steps in his coffin a few days

ater,

Eric was a fine fellow— I knew him well— I taught him at school—
he never changed. He spent years in England studying his profession—
he return home ~- the same unassuming courteous young man I kmew years
ago— what a lesson for you girls and boys-— he never put on airs.

Those who heard Eddie play bis guitar will remember that experience.
He too was a fineyoung man. And now George too is gone— his orches-
tra played at nearly all the best dances in town—- his band was his hobby.

They were al} young men of whom their parents speak highly. What
a void is left in those homes-- oniy time will heal the wounds.

The lines below were written by John Whitcomb. T have made some
slight changes.

“We cannot say, and we will not say,
That they are dead— they’re just away
With a cheery smile and a wave of hand,
They have wondered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming, how very fair

It needs must be, since they linger there.
And you! Oh you! who the wildest year
For the old time step, and the glad return,
Think of them faring on, as dear

In the love of there, as the love of here.
Think of them still as the same. I say,
They are not dead, they are just away.

May their souls rest in peace.
Cherio, till next week, Love from Auntie | Fran,

Miss Africa-- |
Beauty, Brains And Business

“Miss Africa’ came to Chicago recently and in her brief visit created a
very favorable impression for African womanhood with her charm, wit,
intelligence and intense desire to serve her country economically.

She is Miss Abby Ekwonna, a 24-year-old beauty from Lagos, Ni-
geria, who gained international prominence by winning the “Miss Africa”
title in competition with 15 other beauties from 1s African nations in a con-
test held in New York City to commemorate the emergence of the new
African states. She was crowned by Mrs, Catherine Basie, wife of famed
American Negro band leader Count Basie.

A former United Nations secretary, ‘‘Miss Africa’ arrived in Chicago
to visit the Fuller Products Cosmetics Co., as part of a business tour of the
United States. She surveyed the fashion field, establishing contacts and
buying merchandise for a tashion salon she is establish in Lagos. “I will
be offering our young women all the things they desire in modern fashion,”
she remarked about. her business venture.

‘*Miss Africa”! is very modern herself, She was an eyeful to spectators
upon her arrival at O'Hare Airport The 5-foot 3-inch, 115-pound
Nigerian wore a dashing Akwa gown topped by a stole made of African
kente cloth. The Akwa gown is the national costume of her country.
For Miss Ekwonna, it served to accentuate her shapely figure. She wore
black pumps, silver earrings and bracelets and her hair was done vp in the
latesc style. With her winsome smile, the shocolate-colored Miss Ekwonna
was the personification of grace and poise.

Her talents ate not restricted to the beauty field. A fine singer, mostly
in the folk music category. she has appeared in several documentary films
on Africa. The films include, “The U. S. and the Congo”, aud “*Ni.
geria and Democracy.” She also knows all the latest American and La~
tin dances.

“iss Africa” comes by her business talent naturally. Her father is
in the import-export business. Miss Ekwonna believes that economic
growth is one of the major factors in “There is a strong movement among young Afticans to bring the conti-
nent alive,’ We know that it can be done through education, economics
and politics.”

_... Powerful Than Ministers?
fru tha Berman Utada Haat —

In (Germany) the State3Secretaries’ are the civil-service heads of depart-
ments, and deputies of the: ministers in charge of ministries or departments.

During that notorious night when the police action against “Der
Spiegel’, the newsmagazine, was commenced in Bonn and Hamburg, the
Federal Governm.nt appeared to consist not of ministers but exclusively of
State Secretaries. In the Ministry of Justice only State Secretary Walter
Strauss was fully informed about the whole matter, Minister Stammberger
had been excluded carefully from knowing anything, and whatever informa-
tion had to be passed on to the Federal Chanceilor was passed on to him
through State Secretary Globke,

Ministers Lose Office

Ie was that very night that caused the government crisis in Bonn.
The responsible ministers, Franz-Josef Strauss and Stammberger, lost their
Office, but the State Secretaries remained in office; Walter Strauss was pro.
moted to the rank of judge at the European Court of Law in Luxembourg,
and Globke, too continues in office. In Bonn this state of affairs will often
be referred to as the “Trade Union of State Secretaries”, or a kind of “Se-
cond Government’. What is the power and authority of these men who,
after all, are not responsible to parliament?

According to the letter of the law Srate Secretaries are the leading
administrative executives of the ministers. They are to head and adminis-
ter their ministry and relieve their politically active ministers of the adminis-
trative routine work. To use a military example: they can be compared to
the chiefs of a general staff. But in the military service, too, chiefs of staff
have often been more important than the commander in-chief, and practice
has been developing along lines different from what the law had wanted.

State Secretaries have jobs more permanent than those of ministers,
Mr. Walter Stress served as a State Secretary in the Ministry of Justice
for thirteen years, he saw six ministers come and go before he went to
Luxembourg. State Secretaries know everything about their departments
and they know every officer and official personally asthey have appointed
most of them, The ministers will sometimes hardly know their way about
the ministries and the numerous personnel in theit departments.

And what is more, the State Secretaries will sit at theic desks and
work in the department all the time while che ministers travel in the coun-
try, fight electoral campaigns, and represent the policy of their department.
Amost all of the State Secretaries are administrative lawyers, while the
ministers ate politicians. This was meant to be so.
the legal and administrative details, while the ministers are in charge o:
determining the overall political concept. Butin this more complicated
world often the expertise of the expert will win over the overall concept.
This also applies to the federal government. (German Tribune)

New Drug
Prevents Malaria

In clinical tests on malaria by
the U.S. National Jpstitut es of
Health, a new drug hes given
protection against the disease
nearly ten times longer than con
ventional anti-malaria drugs now
in use.

Volunteers givena slpgle injec
tion of the drug nearly a year ago
bave not yet shown any evidence
of malaria even though they have
been bitten by heavily infected
mosquitces at monthly intervals,
Other volunteers not given the
drug have invariably come down
with malaria after being bitten
by the same mosquitoes.

Scientists think it is possible
thac “C1501” kills the parasites
before infection can take root.
If so, the drug will greatly aid
the world-wide programme to
eliminate malaria. The disease,

which presents a grave problem _

particularly to mary of the emer-
ging countries, afflicts 200 mil-
lion people and causes two mil-
lion deaths each year. Scientists
have called the results of CI501’s
clinical tests “Spectacular”.

Laville Sets Record.

It is regrettable that unlike other
West Indians, Dominicans show
little interést in Athletics: it seems
to evaporate as soon as they leave
school. One notable exception ts
Benoit Laville who is presently
studying inthe U.S A. On March
2, he represented Cal-Poly of San
Luis Obispo and threw the javelin
223ft.2in. This distance is a re-
cord for the Long Beach Relays,
the previous best being 16sft. It al-
so broke the Cal-poly record of
atof. gin. set up by H. Ziraman
in 1954, and is easily a West In-
dies record. The World Record
stands at 282ft. 3in., held by J.
Lusis of the U.S.S.R. — Laville is
to-compete against the University of
California in Los Angeles today.

Outright Victories

Te was a weekend of outright
victories in the D.A,S.A, Cricket
League. St. Joseph beat S.M.A.
by 6 wickets at the Botanic Gardens,
while Combermere beat D.G.S. by
72 runs at Windsor Park.

At the Gardens, S.M.A. datted
first on a soft wicket. They were

‘skittled out for 68 in a little over

two hours. Only R. Williams, who
got 20, reached. double figures. The
other batsmen gave the impression:

that they... would . have . prefetred..to..

spend the afteruoon on _the. beach.
K. Ravalin 3 for 22, H. Charles
3 for 23'and K. Laurent 2 for 13,
supplied the music. —

St, Joseph started well and Ly
close of play on Saturday had over-
hauled their opponents -score with
one wicket down. On Sunday
morning the St. Joseph batsmen
could not face up to the off breaks
of skipper F. Grell and the medium
pace of H. Williams, M Felix (55)
and T. Anthony (24) were associa-
ted in a second wicket par:nership
which yielded 65 runs, but as soon
as th’s was broken, the bowlers pro-
ceeded to cut through the innings
like a knife through butter. At one
time, St. Joseph were 90 for 1, but
half an hour later they were all out
for 121. Williams bagged 5 for 34
and Grell 5 for 31.

I was particularly impressed with
the bowling of Williams, He de-
livers his slow-medium in-swingers
intelligently and baffles the best bats-
men with an occasional away-swinget.

Batting a second time, S.M.A.
were again unimpressive. Lawrence
and Ravalin were soon among the
wickets, and the students were all
out for 99. Tony Lartigue (42)
showed flashes of brilliance, but was
run out just when he threatened to
take command. Chasing a total of
42, the St. Joseph batsmen made
heavy weather of it, but at 34 for 4,
He finished the
game with three consecutive sixes

off Grell.

DGS. Crushed

At the Windsor Park, D.G,S.
allowed Combermere to reach a total
of 185 after dismissing eight batsmen

for 65, J. White participated in a
partnership of 69 with E. Pond (29) :
and also helped H. St. Hilaire (17°

ROBINSON

n, 0.) to put on $1 for the lasc wick-
et. His fine innings of 93 included
15 fours anda five. J. Celaire got
6 for 41 and C. Doctrove 4 for 60
for D.G.S,

In their second innings, Comber-
mere could raise only 109, They
were shattered by the pace of Celaire
(6 for 38) and Doctrove — 4 for 53,
H, Williams scored 26 for Comber-
mere, Set to get 167 to win, the
schoolboys were never in the race -—-
all out for 103, Only E, Charles who
hit eight fours in a bright innings of
35 offered any resistance. For Com-
bermere, St, Hilaire took 6 for 34
and Joseph John 4for 32, Skipper
J. Larocque bagged a brace of ducks
in this match.

Cassius Fails

By taking ten rounds to beat
Douglas Jones on points on Wed-
nesday night, Cassius Marcellus
Clay failed for the first time to pre
dict the outcome in seven fights.
He had affirmed that he would stop
Jones in four rounds. At tne end
of the fourth round the crowd jeer-
ed at Clay, This victory is his
nineteenth since turning professional
in 1961. He has never been beaten.
Latest is that he has now been off:

ered a fight with -ex-woild-champ -

THIBAUD IN THE NEWS
_-#The. Secretary. of 'Statews-c- given covering approval ‘for a C D.
& W. grant of £917 (approx $4,

for the purpose of providing the
village of Thibaud with a pipe born
water supply service.” So runs a
GIS. release — but it does not tell
us the most interesting part: what
are the “‘certain reservations?”

Actually, Thibaud which suffered
dysentery and typhoid some while
ago due to a contaminated stream
they were using for their water, has
had the piped water for some time,
thanks to advance approval from the
S.0.5,

On Wednesday this week Thi-
baud received a visit from Hon.L.
C. Didier, Hon J.L. Royer, Mr.
Hunter (P.W.D. Project Engineer)
and the P.S, of the Ministry of
Communications and Works. They
were received by the energetic chair-
man ofthe Village Council Mr
Hugh Fabian who showed them
the work done on the local roads
and other. improvements in which
the village had co-operated.

The Ministry team ‘also visited
Bense and Paix Bouche and inspect-
ed progress on the schools at these
villages. The building work is
going well. Possibilities of improv-
ing tracks such as the Thibaud-Pol-
iniere, Penville-Delaford and Pen-
ville-Carib were also investigated.

FOUR TRUCKS IN

Four trucks, none of them owncr-
driven, were in accidents this week,
one of them with serious results.
A Coca Cola truck everturned on

without mishap to the — driver.
Another dropped into an open
trench in Fields Lane—no serious
damage occurred. The pylon at the
bottom of Federation Drive was
Knocked flat by a P. W. D. truck
but has now been replaced.

Worst of these accidents was on
the Imperial Road, between Sylvania
and Castle Bruce junction on Wed-
nesday. Here the driver, Frederick,
ran off the road: the vehicle turned
over several times and landed on _ its
wheels. The truck had been
packed with a road gang, including

two women. Nim: persons were. °

Mental Health Association

We are very glad to see that the Dominica Association for Mental
Health is finally getting underway with a well-worked out draft Constitution
prepared for the General Meeting next month,

From the ‘‘Objects” it is clear that
the Association 1s stepping out on
the nght foot — since the primar y
object of a Mental Health Associa-
tion is to educate the pnblic away
from the medieval idea that mental-
ly ill people are dangerous and in-
curable and that they should there-
fore be shut away from the puolic
gaze for the rest of their lives and
allowed to rot away, without hope,
treatment or love. Dr. Hornick’s
work last summer showed how pro-
per specialist treatment added toim-
ptoved conditions could reduce the
number of mental cases in the so-
called ‘hospital’? by almost half in
a matter of weeks.

Emphasis is also laid on the edu-
cation of ‘‘parents, teachers and ot-
hers in the emotional needs of child-
ren” -— a basic step to remove the
ptoblems of juvenile delinquency
found so frequently in modern com~
munities.

Members of the public interested
in this great work, should immedi-
ately get in touch with the Secretary,

Maiden Speeches Applauded
Dawbiney Literary Club
Mr. C. A. Shillingford on “Why Sociology,” and



Boys and Giris in
Dominica

By
Herald Literary Club



Mr, J.N. Johnson on “Weapons of Mass Media—P ress, Reporter

Radio, Cinema” delivered maiden speeches at a meeting of

the Dawbiney Literary Club on Thursday the 7th instant.

Sociology, stat:d Mr. C. A. Shillingford, is the scien-
tific study of patterned shared human behavior. The
social behaviour of human beings—the way in which people
act towards one another in their social relations has always
been an interesting subject of study and has therefore been
observed and described by many _ historians, politicians,
poets, novelists and philosophers.

Sociology, he continued, may be studied for its own
sake purely as an academic pursuit, because one might
want to know more about society and culture. A know-
ledge of sociology enriches one’s mind gives onea more
thorough understanding of ot her people and provides a
satisfactorily objective judgement concerning one’s fellow
men. The last point is of particular importance, he said,
“because people are often too quick to pass judgement on
others without duly weighing the evidence.

Sociological study, he concluded, lends itself to help-
ing the individual and his society achieve results in terms
of better social relations. The more prominent and influ-
ential a person expects to be, the more useful and import:
ant will sociological knowledge be for him.

“The press, radio and cinema are ostensibly media of

mass propaganda which is the expression of opinion or
action by individuals or groups deliberately designed to
influence opinions or actions of other individuals or groups
with reference to predetermined ends. People are fooled or
_ deceived by multifarious, propaganda devices because ‘they
eit emotions father than to theif treason.
make us believe and do something we would. not believe or
do if we thought about it calmly, dispassionately,” declared
schoolboy-member of the Club J.N N. Johnson.

After showing the way in which the individual and
public can be manipulated by those who have access to
‘mass media: and the effect of the press, radio and cinema
on public opinion, elections and juvenile delinquency, he
then showed how the press (through its editorials especial-

-ly) can influence the decision of statesmen and cause them
sometimes to act ‘irrationally and irresponsibly.’

Qa

“In the Soviet-Communist concept, the mass media
have clear and explicit mandates as to their primary objec-
tives. Above all they are committed to carrying Com-
munist theory and policy to the masses, rallying support for
the party and government and raising the general cultural
level of the people. To achieve these aims the party and
government exercise relatively strict control over the media
and their operation. Butin the libertarian theory which
dominates the Anglo-American and many western coun-
tries emphasis is upon the freedom of the media of mass
communication, especially from government control.
Therefore in the Communist Countties the press radio and
cinema are more potent weapons of propaganda for the
government,” Mr. J. Johnson concluded.

A lively discussion ensued before Chairman A-
Lazare congratulated the Maiden Speakers on their talks,
which he said were of a “higher than anticipated stan d-
ard.”

Elections heild immediately afterwards brought in
only one new member— Miss Yolanda Savarin- on the
Executive Committee. Mr. O. A. Lawrence—President;
B. St. C. Roberts-—Vice Pres, J. A. Barzey--Treasurer,
A. Leevy — Secretary (Honorary), A. Richards — Assist.
Secretary, and M. E. John Lewis—Committee member re-
tained their seats.

News that on 6th April the Club will be celebrating
its 12th Anniversary, that Dawnlit Issue No. 3 will soon be
out and that Miss O. Brand B.A. had been expelled from
the Club were significant announcements. — (Contributor)

George Richard, headbov
of D.G.S., C. Riviere, and
T. Dailey of the D.G.S. Lit-
erary & Webating Society
(forming a panel) discussed
candidly and broadmipdedly
the topic “Boys and Girls
Relationship in Dominica,”
at a meeting of the Society
held on Wednesday 6th
March.

The following views were
ventilated in answer to a
number of question put to
the panel by the chairman
Errol Walker:—

(1) Co-education in the
Secondary Schools would
help improve the education-
al standard in Lominica
since there would evidently
be intense acacemic competi-
tion between the sexes.

(2) Tothe average teen-
ager love is a mere infatua-
tion. There is no profound
affection. Many a boy tells
a girl ‘I love you’ because he
wants to satisfy his animalis-
tic desires. This love rarely
leads to marriage | but the
couple enjoy all the privil-
; arrived hte —

(3) The average boy will
not introduce a girl with
whom he is ‘in love’ to his
parents because he fears
that if she presents him with
an offspring, he will not be
able to say “Iam not the
father.”

(4) Many a girl coming
from the country to seek em-
ployment in town finds hes-
self flirting with the ‘hot
boys’ because she wants
popularity and sometimes
‘financial aid.’

(5) Dances are the chief
means of bringing boys and
girls together but it is a re-
grettable fact that some teen-
age dances are organized by
irresponsible people.

(©) lo some cases parents
are (ignorantly) too strict
with their daughters; they
chastize themif they—the
girls—keep boy company,
Paradoxically these self-same
girls when free from parent-
al tutelage “‘make the fullest
possible use of their liberty.”*

About 40 students listened
to the discussion.

POETS CORNER
MEMORIES OF A YOUTH OF PROMISE

“What has he done to die a death like that?”

I ask myself— it waghs upon my heart!

Oh, angry flames that raped a life so young,

You left us but the guitar and the song!
. Deep in my mind how often 1 can see

The symbol of the lad that used to be!

Anxiety, horror, anguish form the theme

In my blurred mind, of nightmares in one dream.
You went ‘n flames: our hearts survive to Sura
That you have passed, no longer to return!

Some sweeter day, should written words come true,
All your own kind shall meet again with you;
And then the truths — mysterious before~-

Shall came to light, and secrets shroud no moce.

BULLETIN NO. 2
Topworking Citrus

The Citrus Development plan is now in full operation and everyone
interested 1n the citrus industry is doing all they can to produce fruit of the
highest quality for the best price available. - Therefore we are asking all
planters to help the industry overcomie one-of its biggest problems:—






sae “inat, the present: P packing® fruit ¥§ totally
inadequate, but that ean be cured in a relatively shart time, provided. funds
are‘available. Producing emough fruit for this new plant will take many
years and the sooner we tackle this problem the better for all concerned:
On every estate there are citrus trecs growing that produce nothing
or at most only a fraction of the potential of their wonderful, fully develop-

resent. amachinery “for



‘ed root systems. You may’ have seeded grapefruit, sour orange, Gospo, rough

lemon, wild grapefruit and several others. They all possesses a root system
capable of supporting a mature tree whose fruit you can sell for dry cash.

All you have to do is:—

1. Count the numher of trees and note the type of each tree.

2- Take this list to your Agricultural District Officer or your Field Offi-
cet who will thea make arrangements to have your uneconomical trees top-
worked into trees producing a cash crop.

You may have to wait a while before getting yours done, because the
Agricultural Department is now busy topworking trees for all who request
it, but the sooner you contact your Agricultural Officer the sooner your trees
will be topworked and the sooner they will be producing a cash crop. Siart
NOW,

You must realise that a young plant planted now might give you a few
fruit in 1967, but a tree that is topworked today wiil give you a good
crop mn 1965.

Topwork that tree
And you will see
How very far ahead you'll be.

PUBLIC AND HUNAN RELATIONS

{sDUBLIC RELATIONS?” in this

modern world is a highly organ-
ised and often a highly profitable under-
taking, as anyone who has frequented
cosmopolite circles in the large cities of
the United States (particularly Washing-
ton) can testify. Innumerable firms in
the States charge substantial fees for pre-
senting a favourable picture of a concern,
organisation or person through the mass
media of newspapers, television or radio.
Even Britain has gradually become pub-
lic relations minded, Inthe British
House of Commons certain M.P.s are
noted for representing “special interests”
and, notso long ago, a Conservative
M.P. combined his parliamentary duties
with acting as Public Relations Adviser
to the Government of Ghana at a high

oP Bacon eared

edsenior civil servant to England to take
an advanced course, presumably that he’
might better be able to relate Govern-
ment’s achievements to the local popula-
tion and publicise Dominica abroad—
in public relations jargon this is called
“selling” the idea, although we dislike
the verb. On the cover of an excellent
glossy booklet about the Windward
Islands, just published, is a fine photo-
grapic study of our boiling lake, pr o-
duced by the P.R.O.’s Office. All this

is very praiseworthy.

But public relations does not only con:
cern scenery and commerce. On the con-
trary, it should be indivisible from human
relations, and that means that how you and
I and all our acquaintances think, feel and
behave: the unknown quantity. © Where-
ever public relations disregards human re-
lations or tends to assume that property is
more important than persons, or that the
voice of the people is hardly worth lis-
tening to, propaganda becomes sterile and
lifeless. The word-producers may not al-
ways to be blame; they take their direction
or cue from above.

The volume of material received from
the Government Information Office is
indicative of considerable industry. The
releases fall into three categories.

1) Handouts which might be more prop-
erly described as notices or advertisements.
2) Self-eulogies by Ministers of Govern-
ment (frequently taking the form of extracts
from their own speeches) or exculpatory
and defensive statements. 3) Trivia.
Once in a while a significant happening,

ooo

well-documented, is handed in — and

published with alacrity.

If you examine the colourful “Wind-
ward Islands Annual” referrred to above,
you will see that, save for a touch of his-
tory and many names of visiting tourists,
nothing at all is written about the inha-
bitants of the Windwards. This may
of course be deliberate policy; but is it
flattering to the people of the little is-
lands? We of the newspaper HERALD can
at least claim that on our masthead,
before even drawing attention to the
fruits of Dominica’s rich soil, we have
depicted ‘‘The Finest People” in the
matriarchal symbol of a peasant woman,
splendid prototype from whom most of
the. ablest citizens of this land have de-
scended,



Last year Dominica sent a distinguish- To manifest constant concern for the

people is the wisest course for anyone in
Government. Winston Churchill knew:
t his—he was a natural public relations
genius because he :ranslated the word
‘public’ to mean ‘human,’ and was thus
able to draw from a suffering nation
blood, sweat and tears.

When countries are struggling against
odds, it comes naturally to most authori-
ties to put economic things first and al-
ways first. For one thing, material bene-
fits are more yistble. The Social Ser-
vices are usually pared down because
building up the calibre of the people is
a slower and less showy process than
building a road or an office. Concen-
tration on the humanities might not give

~ the P. R. O.s so much to write about at

first, but in the long run the raising of
the living condition and quality of the
ordinary people is the greatest monument
of all.

We are therefore sorry whenever public
relations and human relations are divorc-
ed, and can only assume that the cleavage
springs from lack of empathy at the
source. May we remind our readers of
words spoken over international radio at
a time when the public relations (abroad)
of the old Federation were flourishing, al-
though at home and behind the scenes
human values were breaking up: “It is
useless building airports, accepting ships
and expanding roads if the people who
totter up the gangways or stumble along
the roads are illiterate, ill-nourished, pov-
erty-stricken or diseased. Letus have
fizst things first.”

Afterthought
On Golihaut

Dear Editor,— The tragedy
which shook the island on Car-
nival Monday undoubtedly left
its mark on most spectacors, and

in your



- ourPress..commentators seemed.
to have overlooked somé of the *

less spectacular bands which
turped out this year. .

Asa true Creole, I observed
with the greatest of pleasure that
arather small “old-style” band
from Colihaut appeared in Ros-
eau. What struck me specially
was the cl ck-like precision of
their dance steps and hand move-
ments, the ingenuity of their
palm-leaf costumes so beautifully
pleated and laundered by Nature
herself, and the fact that their
patots songs were exceedingly
catchy and in keeping with the
island wide need for a “‘back-to-
the-land” campaign.

Hoping that these few words
of appreciation will encourage
our Colibaut performers to turo
ont again next year, aad that our
local radio station will arrange
meanwhile to broadcast the songs
they sang to us,

I remain,
Yours gratefully
“Yon Bon Dominichin’’.



Dominicans Are
Too Smart

Sir,

We Dominicans are very
smart. We extract money from
Britain and we don’t owe them any
thanks. We breed like flies, and
don’t have to bother with marriage
and. responsibility. Woe used to
send hundreds of our people to
England, mostly unskilled, some
ctiminals among them. We got
mad when B rit ain called a halt.
Yet we do not want her people here.

We don't even want oar own kin
from the other islands here. We
send fruit and produce to England
and get better prices chan from other
countries. When we want some-
thing more, we yell “Colonialism”

Controversial political letters will not o¢ pub-

in People’s Post do not necessarily
and sometimes ‘Imperialism.’

Dominicans talk a lot of stuff a-
bout ancient slavery and exploitation
of our working people, and they
cheer us. We send our Ministers
abroad with spending money and
they return puffed up with ideas
which they call their own. We a-
buse our best leaders who try to be
tolerant.

Now we are aiming to imitate
Trinidad ac Carnival. We get
Trindadians in to amuse us, and
what does it cost? Look out we
don’t imitate the gangsterism of Car-
nival Trinidad too. Our calypsoes,
are usually dirty.

I would suggest that we try to be
ourselves, decent God-fearing people.
Let us appreciate all who are similar
in their views. Let us be Chcis:-
ians and men of good will together,

Yours truly,
BUSINESS MAN (of Colour)

An Outstanding —
Smear

Sir,

These three words denote what
all Dominican will have been tarn-
ished with unless the culprits of the
trag:dy. of Cacnival Monday ate
identified, tried and pay . the extreme
penalty-~- only then will that smear
whe erased. ene ncaa

Anyone suggesting anything else
but. wiltul murder is hiding .scme-
thing which is vital to identify the
mutderers. © To assist the Police,
detectives and others, it is mecessary
that Government at once offer a
reward for any information which
might lead to the identification of
the culprits and also about anything
observed at the time of the tragedy,
or before or afterwards. Let us
know about:-—

* the liquid sprayed, its constitu-
tion, how sprayed and who made it,

* the individual who ignited the
costume or clothes,

* the person or persons who.
planned and caused the tragedy.

That’s where you Dominicans
can help yourselves. Right NOW —
let every citizen discuss what took
place since someone saw everything
that happered on King George V
Street on Monday February 25th,
1963. That information must be
revealed othe:wise the smear that is
on us Dominicans will linger and
be spoken about in all parts of the
world.

yourself a Dominican.

Something About Goversment -- I
From the Royal Bank of Canada’s Monthly Letter (March)

THE STATE is a community of people whose member
ship sequires them to live under the same code of behav-
iour. To make this possible, they choos: the kind, quality
and quanity of government that best serves their needs
today and gives them hope for tomorrow.

There should be no mistake about this dual function
of government: it must provide what is immediately necess-
ary and at the same time make plans designed to give every
citizen the best opportunity to realize in future the things
he believes to be most worthwhile.

We live in an age when. shabby idcologies promise
short cuts. They take the undramatic realities of society
and sculpture them into images, then fervently str up
followers. They marry selfishness and ignorance, and
breed conflict between races, crecds, individuals and coun-
tries.

Those who live under Western democracy must not
be complacent about their present felicity. They can re-
tain it only if they are alive to the spirit behind the facade,
as much aware of the moral depths as of the material sur-
face features of acrnocracy.

This may be brushed aside by some people as being a
too idealisiic view of government. But a government is
expected to have ideals —as do business, science, education
and all the ocher social facets of-life - or it is not living up
to its responsibilities.

History is, in the main, the story of man’s efforts to
attain the best he can imagine life to hold for him, and to
maintain order so that enrichment.of living may proceed
generation after ‘generation. It is the purpose of govern-
ment.to provide .the environment in which this advance-
ament will be possible.

——Bvei those who flee trom a government. must av ¢

government, The Pilgrims aboard: the Mayfower formed
themselves’ into ‘a. civill body ,politick” before their litle .
ship reached the shores of America. There is no evidence .
within human history to support the idea that a group of .

people can exist without government. For an ex.mrle of
anarchy all we need do is stand at a busy street corner when
the traffic constable has left it for a minures. Automobiles
become tangled as drivers manoeuvre to .get through and
their horns snarl angrily.

Canadians do not look upon the State asa sort of

overlord, but a creature of their own hands — a servant.

The government of the state is placed in the hands of men
and women believed by citizens to be capable of discharg-
‘ing the duties of care, foresight and protec.ion. The best
form of government, they agree, is government by good
men, quauified to.carry out these obligations.

Democracy is not an easy system to maintain and
develop. It must. bring together under one roof two differ
ent ideas: the idea that the state should provide scope and
opportunity for individual enterprise and the idea that the
state should bea collection of public services, satisfying
people’s needs by subsidies, subventions and the like.

It is not pessible for a government to rule without
curtailing some individual freedoms, but it is contrary to
the canons of good administration that it should seek to
compensate for restrictions by providing circuses as well as

bread.

Aims and principles “He who

eome with

might be paraphrased:

ment must have a'ms that are spec-
fic, concrete, and definite. These
differ from country to country accord-
ang to circumstances and environ-
ment, but the ultimate criterion is
this: are the people preserved and
prosperous?

Ideally, once a representative is
elected by the people he becomes
part of government, not politics.
The purpose of a political party is
to bring together people who believe
alike about certain things so that
they may carry their principles into

It has been the experience of
Canada in general to have political
parues with high principles. They
have been made up of men and
women of conviction who to
explain their beliefs in order to win
support, They hive not descended
to huckstering; they have not aban-
doned theic honesty for the sake of
partisan expediency. Our — great
political figures have looked upon
government as an art and science to
be learned, not merely an office to
be won.

In a democratic state the men
forming the government are con-
cerned with representing the citizens.
They believe in the sovereignty of
the people, universal suffrage in
which every man and woman counts
asa person, andthe right of the
majority to rule. The future of
democracy, said a nineteenth century
writer, mainly depends on the will-
ingness of the omnipotent people to
be led by highly trained and cen-
scientious statesmen, and on the
willingness of those statesmen to
serve the people upon such terms as
democracy will accept.

University Grisis
By Graham Norton
(Cour. from our last issue)

There is now therefore an urgent need for more pov-
ero ment spending in Brash universities, colleges and
technical insututions. More classrooms, laboratories and
living accommodation are needed—and more money 1s
required, both to pay for additional staff, and to keep those
that remain. For the problem has extended itself into that
celd also. Figures recently published show that many of
Britain’s most promising scientists had taken up careers
abroad, paruculacly in che United States. This 1s not only
cs loss fo che universities Qvho also lose such talents to high-

All dis discontent has found expression ina getting
sogecher of university teachers with all teachers, particularly
chose represented in one powerful “National U nio n of
Teachers,” and all those interested in education in a “1963
Campaign For Education,” a vast pressure group, which
it is hoped, will develop like some great slow-mo ving

Why has no one yet said this
Street Jump Up shonld be abolished
by Government, Churches, Civic
Organizations, parents, wives, and
husbands as a celebration that only
encourages drunkeness, illegitimacy
(which every decent citizen wants
wiped out) and now death.

Can anyone explain why no
one has suggested abolishing this
particular celebration, or is it because
there are those who will endure any
misfortune for their carnal satisfaction;
and in such numbers!

Then all I can cry is Shame
shame shame on Dominica.

Thank you,

SYMPATHIZER
P.S. I would ask all Good D omi-
nicans to join together to approach
Government to abolish Carnival
Steeet Jump Up.
SYMPATHIZER,

Sharp Griticism

Sir,—Day after day things seem
to be going from bad to worse in
this hitherto pleasant community of
ours. I refer to police action on the
Carnival Monday incident and the
attitude of Government in the same
‘matter. AsI see it three things
went wrong in the police. procedure
of investigations, as follows:—

(1) That the whole band should |

- -have been. surrounded and

the_name_and_ address '_ of
every individual therein

taken down.

(2) Ena Joseph who is alleged to
have said certain things should
have remained under police
surveillance until she was fic
to make a statement before
shehad any contact with
anybody at all.

His Honour should not have
waited unul he got pressure
from more responsible mem-
bets of the community before
he caused’ samples of the
costumes to be dispatched for
chemical analysis.

The next question is that to the
best of our knowledge the Acting
Chief of Police had either been too
shocked or complacent ever to call
in the local C, I. D. personnel to
give any instruction in regard to the
fire incident. Those investigations
seem to have been done entirely on
their own, and it is not too much
to presume, that the best Police
efforts may not throw any light.

We are glad that ‘Scotland Yard’
has been brought down to investi-
gate this malicious crime.

Another strange thing is that we
have heard that Press Reports given
on the first stage of the Inquiry into
the probable causes of the said fire
have provoked a release ftom Go-
vernment purporting to correct what
was stated in The Press Reports

As we see it, those reports did
not seem to involve Government in
any respect, and we are therefore
shocked to realize Governments’
sudden interest in this matter which
did not provoke their sympathy in
the first place to the bereaved relatives
and friends of these who suffered,

May the Almighty God have
mercy on US.

Yours truly,
Fair Play

A TRISUTE

TO
GEORGE AVORY JAMES 71957-71965

Ie is from the depths of our scathing grief that we record the passing
away of our very loving and dearly beloved George Avory James.

His rather early and unpredictable death came during the pomp and
fanfare of the musical revelling of Carnival 1963, an aspect of community
life to which his own was a matchless contribution. One could hardly be
better known and loved in any community than George was here, a popula-
rity which followed him mainly as a result of his great talent and devotion
to mnsic.

Born on August 12th 1937, George at.ended Roseau Boys’ school, and
later St. Mary’s Academy from where he obtained the School Cert’ficate in
1956,

In the following year he joined the Civil Service and was attached to the
General Post Office, until his transfer to the Labour Department where he
was working at the time of his death,

George’s interest in music began at an early age, but most of this went
unobserved until the Dominica Music Fest val of 1951 when we won two
first places in classes 16 and 17 for ‘Recorder Solo’ and ‘Recorder Duet’
respectively.

He saw his first opportunity to reach the top of Orchestration in this
country after the disbandment of The Casimir Bros. Swingtette, when he
proceeded to form the eversince most popular ‘G, J. Orchestra’ which was
named for bim and which he led with distinctive fame both here and in
Anugua.

The only child in his family, George was loving, respectful and
obedient as could be expected of any truly good child, and asa member of
the community he bore himself as was symbolic of a truly born gentleman,

George was recently espoused to Staff Nurse Stella Green, and to those
who knew, they indicated possession of every genuine quality for marital
success and happiness; but that was not to be. Nurse, however was at his
death bed.

To the whole of this community in which he was an outstanding asset,
our loss cannot be soon written off; to his colleagues and friends, he will
long be remembered; and to his parents their loss’ cannot be reduced to
words........ ; ;

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE,... 3

Children’s (Factual Test) Corner

Dear Girls and Boys,

The news these last few days has made us all sad. It
will be a long time before we shall be able to look forward to Carnival as
the gay, care-free enjoyment of years gone by. There are some school
childcen lying critically ill in the hospital— it could be any one of you—
nearly all of you take part in the “jump up” in bands on those two days.
Our three promising young men lost there lives in the terrible tragedy—
two of them promising musician.

It was Carnival Monday—- the bands had paraded the streets. The
Blessed Sacrament was exposed at the Cathedral. There were quite a few
women praying and a sprinkling of men. Eric Shillingford among them.
Father Albert gave the benediction just before twelve. There I saw Eric
walking down the steps in the bright sunshine outside: little did he rea~
lig that he would be catried up those same steps in his coffin a few days

ater,

Eric was a fine fellow— I knew him well— I taught him at school—
he never changed. He spent years in England studying his profession—
he return home ~- the same unassuming courteous young man I kmew years
ago— what a lesson for you girls and boys-— he never put on airs.

Those who heard Eddie play bis guitar will remember that experience.
He too was a fineyoung man. And now George too is gone— his orches-
tra played at nearly all the best dances in town—- his band was his hobby.

They were al} young men of whom their parents speak highly. What
a void is left in those homes-- oniy time will heal the wounds.

The lines below were written by John Whitcomb. T have made some
slight changes.

“We cannot say, and we will not say,
That they are dead— they’re just away
With a cheery smile and a wave of hand,
They have wondered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming, how very fair

It needs must be, since they linger there.
And you! Oh you! who the wildest year
For the old time step, and the glad return,
Think of them faring on, as dear

In the love of there, as the love of here.
Think of them still as the same. I say,
They are not dead, they are just away.

May their souls rest in peace.
Cherio, till next week, Love from Auntie | Fran,

Miss Africa-- |
Beauty, Brains And Business

“Miss Africa’ came to Chicago recently and in her brief visit created a
very favorable impression for African womanhood with her charm, wit,
intelligence and intense desire to serve her country economically.

She is Miss Abby Ekwonna, a 24-year-old beauty from Lagos, Ni-
geria, who gained international prominence by winning the “Miss Africa”
title in competition with 15 other beauties from 1s African nations in a con-
test held in New York City to commemorate the emergence of the new
African states. She was crowned by Mrs, Catherine Basie, wife of famed
American Negro band leader Count Basie.

A former United Nations secretary, ‘‘Miss Africa’ arrived in Chicago
to visit the Fuller Products Cosmetics Co., as part of a business tour of the
United States. She surveyed the fashion field, establishing contacts and
buying merchandise for a tashion salon she is establish in Lagos. “I will
be offering our young women all the things they desire in modern fashion,”
she remarked about. her business venture.

‘*Miss Africa”! is very modern herself, She was an eyeful to spectators
upon her arrival at O'Hare Airport The 5-foot 3-inch, 115-pound
Nigerian wore a dashing Akwa gown topped by a stole made of African
kente cloth. The Akwa gown is the national costume of her country.
For Miss Ekwonna, it served to accentuate her shapely figure. She wore
black pumps, silver earrings and bracelets and her hair was done vp in the
latesc style. With her winsome smile, the shocolate-colored Miss Ekwonna
was the personification of grace and poise.

Her talents ate not restricted to the beauty field. A fine singer, mostly
in the folk music category. she has appeared in several documentary films
on Africa. The films include, “The U. S. and the Congo”, aud “*Ni.
geria and Democracy.” She also knows all the latest American and La~
tin dances.

“iss Africa” comes by her business talent naturally. Her father is
in the import-export business. Miss Ekwonna believes that economic
growth is one of the major factors in “There is a strong movement among young Afticans to bring the conti-
nent alive,’ We know that it can be done through education, economics
and politics.”

_... Powerful Than Ministers?
fru tha Berman Utada Haat —

In (Germany) the State3Secretaries’ are the civil-service heads of depart-
ments, and deputies of the: ministers in charge of ministries or departments.

During that notorious night when the police action against “Der
Spiegel’, the newsmagazine, was commenced in Bonn and Hamburg, the
Federal Governm.nt appeared to consist not of ministers but exclusively of
State Secretaries. In the Ministry of Justice only State Secretary Walter
Strauss was fully informed about the whole matter, Minister Stammberger
had been excluded carefully from knowing anything, and whatever informa-
tion had to be passed on to the Federal Chanceilor was passed on to him
through State Secretary Globke,

Ministers Lose Office

Ie was that very night that caused the government crisis in Bonn.
The responsible ministers, Franz-Josef Strauss and Stammberger, lost their
Office, but the State Secretaries remained in office; Walter Strauss was pro.
moted to the rank of judge at the European Court of Law in Luxembourg,
and Globke, too continues in office. In Bonn this state of affairs will often
be referred to as the “Trade Union of State Secretaries”, or a kind of “Se-
cond Government’. What is the power and authority of these men who,
after all, are not responsible to parliament?

According to the letter of the law Srate Secretaries are the leading
administrative executives of the ministers. They are to head and adminis-
ter their ministry and relieve their politically active ministers of the adminis-
trative routine work. To use a military example: they can be compared to
the chiefs of a general staff. But in the military service, too, chiefs of staff
have often been more important than the commander in-chief, and practice
has been developing along lines different from what the law had wanted.

State Secretaries have jobs more permanent than those of ministers,
Mr. Walter Stress served as a State Secretary in the Ministry of Justice
for thirteen years, he saw six ministers come and go before he went to
Luxembourg. State Secretaries know everything about their departments
and they know every officer and official personally asthey have appointed
most of them, The ministers will sometimes hardly know their way about
the ministries and the numerous personnel in theit departments.

And what is more, the State Secretaries will sit at theic desks and
work in the department all the time while che ministers travel in the coun-
try, fight electoral campaigns, and represent the policy of their department.
Amost all of the State Secretaries are administrative lawyers, while the
ministers ate politicians. This was meant to be so.
the legal and administrative details, while the ministers are in charge o:
determining the overall political concept. Butin this more complicated
world often the expertise of the expert will win over the overall concept.
This also applies to the federal government. (German Tribune)

New Drug
Prevents Malaria

In clinical tests on malaria by
the U.S. National Jpstitut es of
Health, a new drug hes given
protection against the disease
nearly ten times longer than con
ventional anti-malaria drugs now
in use.

Volunteers givena slpgle injec
tion of the drug nearly a year ago
bave not yet shown any evidence
of malaria even though they have
been bitten by heavily infected
mosquitces at monthly intervals,
Other volunteers not given the
drug have invariably come down
with malaria after being bitten
by the same mosquitoes.

Scientists think it is possible
thac “C1501” kills the parasites
before infection can take root.
If so, the drug will greatly aid
the world-wide programme to
eliminate malaria. The disease,

which presents a grave problem _

particularly to mary of the emer-
ging countries, afflicts 200 mil-
lion people and causes two mil-
lion deaths each year. Scientists
have called the results of CI501’s
clinical tests “Spectacular”.

Laville Sets Record.

It is regrettable that unlike other
West Indians, Dominicans show
little interést in Athletics: it seems
to evaporate as soon as they leave
school. One notable exception ts
Benoit Laville who is presently
studying inthe U.S A. On March
2, he represented Cal-Poly of San
Luis Obispo and threw the javelin
223ft.2in. This distance is a re-
cord for the Long Beach Relays,
the previous best being 16sft. It al-
so broke the Cal-poly record of
atof. gin. set up by H. Ziraman
in 1954, and is easily a West In-
dies record. The World Record
stands at 282ft. 3in., held by J.
Lusis of the U.S.S.R. — Laville is
to-compete against the University of
California in Los Angeles today.

Outright Victories

Te was a weekend of outright
victories in the D.A,S.A, Cricket
League. St. Joseph beat S.M.A.
by 6 wickets at the Botanic Gardens,
while Combermere beat D.G.S. by
72 runs at Windsor Park.

At the Gardens, S.M.A. datted
first on a soft wicket. They were

‘skittled out for 68 in a little over

two hours. Only R. Williams, who
got 20, reached. double figures. The
other batsmen gave the impression:

that they... would . have . prefetred..to..

spend the afteruoon on _the. beach.
K. Ravalin 3 for 22, H. Charles
3 for 23'and K. Laurent 2 for 13,
supplied the music. —

St, Joseph started well and Ly
close of play on Saturday had over-
hauled their opponents -score with
one wicket down. On Sunday
morning the St. Joseph batsmen
could not face up to the off breaks
of skipper F. Grell and the medium
pace of H. Williams, M Felix (55)
and T. Anthony (24) were associa-
ted in a second wicket par:nership
which yielded 65 runs, but as soon
as th’s was broken, the bowlers pro-
ceeded to cut through the innings
like a knife through butter. At one
time, St. Joseph were 90 for 1, but
half an hour later they were all out
for 121. Williams bagged 5 for 34
and Grell 5 for 31.

I was particularly impressed with
the bowling of Williams, He de-
livers his slow-medium in-swingers
intelligently and baffles the best bats-
men with an occasional away-swinget.

Batting a second time, S.M.A.
were again unimpressive. Lawrence
and Ravalin were soon among the
wickets, and the students were all
out for 99. Tony Lartigue (42)
showed flashes of brilliance, but was
run out just when he threatened to
take command. Chasing a total of
42, the St. Joseph batsmen made
heavy weather of it, but at 34 for 4,
He finished the
game with three consecutive sixes

off Grell.

DGS. Crushed

At the Windsor Park, D.G,S.
allowed Combermere to reach a total
of 185 after dismissing eight batsmen

for 65, J. White participated in a
partnership of 69 with E. Pond (29) :
and also helped H. St. Hilaire (17°

ROBINSON

n, 0.) to put on $1 for the lasc wick-
et. His fine innings of 93 included
15 fours anda five. J. Celaire got
6 for 41 and C. Doctrove 4 for 60
for D.G.S,

In their second innings, Comber-
mere could raise only 109, They
were shattered by the pace of Celaire
(6 for 38) and Doctrove — 4 for 53,
H, Williams scored 26 for Comber-
mere, Set to get 167 to win, the
schoolboys were never in the race -—-
all out for 103, Only E, Charles who
hit eight fours in a bright innings of
35 offered any resistance. For Com-
bermere, St, Hilaire took 6 for 34
and Joseph John 4for 32, Skipper
J. Larocque bagged a brace of ducks
in this match.

Cassius Fails

By taking ten rounds to beat
Douglas Jones on points on Wed-
nesday night, Cassius Marcellus
Clay failed for the first time to pre
dict the outcome in seven fights.
He had affirmed that he would stop
Jones in four rounds. At tne end
of the fourth round the crowd jeer-
ed at Clay, This victory is his
nineteenth since turning professional
in 1961. He has never been beaten.
Latest is that he has now been off:

ered a fight with -ex-woild-champ -

Ingemar Johannsen.

THIBAUD IN THE NEWS
_-#The. Secretary. of 'Statews-c- given covering approval ‘for a C D.
& W. grant of £917 (approx $4,

490 W.I.), with certain reservations,

for the purpose of providing the
village of Thibaud with a pipe born
water supply service.” So runs a
GIS. release — but it does not tell
us the most interesting part: what
are the “‘certain reservations?”

Actually, Thibaud which suffered
dysentery and typhoid some while
ago due to a contaminated stream
they were using for their water, has
had the piped water for some time,
thanks to advance approval from the
S.0.5,

On Wednesday this week Thi-
baud received a visit from Hon.L.
C. Didier, Hon J.L. Royer, Mr.
Hunter (P.W.D. Project Engineer)
and the P.S, of the Ministry of
Communications and Works. They
were received by the energetic chair-
man ofthe Village Council Mr
Hugh Fabian who showed them
the work done on the local roads
and other. improvements in which
the village had co-operated.

The Ministry team ‘also visited
Bense and Paix Bouche and inspect-
ed progress on the schools at these
villages. The building work is
going well. Possibilities of improv-
ing tracks such as the Thibaud-Pol-
iniere, Penville-Delaford and Pen-
ville-Carib were also investigated.
