‘BRITAIN, U.S. AND SOVIETS SIGN TREATY

Ban Dangerous Tests

On August sth 1963, three big World Powers took the
first step towards safety when Great Britain, the United
States of America and the Union of Socialists Soviet
Republics signed a partial nuclear test ban treaty with full
formality in the Kremlin Grand Palace in Moscow.
Signatories were the Foreign Ministers of the three states,
Lord Home, Mr. Dean Rusk and Mr. Andrei Gromyko,
and the pact was witnessed by the Secretary General of
the United Nations, U Thant, who flew to Moscow

especially for the occasion.
Ban-The Bombers Claim Credit

Premier Krushchev, who also wit-
nessed the signing, said that it cli-
maxed eight years of hard bargaining
between East and West and came
on the eve of the eighteenth anniver-
sary of the devastation of Hiroshima,
the Japanese city which suffered the
first atomic bomb attack.

In Hiroshima the following day was
held, the Ninth-World Conference
against’ Nuclear borubs, in which
determined ‘‘ban-the-bomb” demon-
strators from all over the world
claimed the treaty as the first break-
through that had resulted from their
devoted efforts to arouse public opin-
ion against the evils of nuclear war,
The Russian, Indian and East
European ‘countries’ delegates took
the opportunity to demonstrate
against the Chinese del e gation
(whose leader spoke against the
bomb) by turning their backs whilst
he denounced the test ban treaty as
“an imperialist plot against the
Chinese masses.” China, wh o
along with France has declined to
sign a treaty, is hoping to produce
her own nuclear bomb in the near
future,

Will Adenauer Sign?

Another possib'e non-signatory
is the West German Republic.
The Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer,
wishes to hold off for the present
since East German Prime Minister
Walter Ulbricht wishes to sign and
Adenauer feels that for West Ger-
many to sign on equal terms would
increase the prestige of East Ger-
many and seem like Western recogn-
ition of the Communist regime:
this is denied by British and Amer-
ican spokesmen. who are encourag-
ing Adenauer to sign.

Rush To Support

An unusual procedure declared
the three original signatories of the
trea. to be legal depository powers.
Thus .1 Thursday copies of the
Treaty were available in Moscow,
London and Washington. The
first to sign in London was the
High Coinmissioners for Canada
and he was quickly followed by over
30 other Commissioners & Ambass-

adors including six from Commun-
ist countries. First to sign in
Washington was the Australian am-
bassador, and in each capital ovet
thirty signatures attested to the de-
sire of most independent countries
in the world to end testing as a first
step to miclear disarmament.

Ratification Required

are
proved. by the Soviet Council of
Ministers, of which Mr. Krushchev
is Chairman, by her Majesty’s Go-
vernment in: Great B.itain (probably
through a courtesy vote in the
Commons), and by two-thirds of
the members present in the Senate of
the United Scates. Statements by
Senator Humphrey, Chairman of
the U. S. Senate’s Disarmament
Committee and several other Sena-
tors indicated that onlv a “‘handful”’
of senate votes will be cast against
the ratification of the treaty — and
this despite Federal expenditure on
armaments amounting to 40% of
the annual budget: a sudden reduc-
tion in U. S. armaments spending
without a carefully planned = switch-
over to civilian-consumption goods
might disrupt the economy and
increase the already high unemploy-
ment figure.

Pope John’s Part

Credit for the treaty gocs to all
three leaders, but as leading British
M, P. and Labour Party commen-
tator R. H. S. Crossman wrote in
the Guardian **Mr. Keanedy deserves
all the praise he will get. But the
man who is, I believe, mainly _ res-
ponsible for the new American
policy was buried recently in Rome.
The philosophy ot peacetul co-exis-
tence outlined by Mr. Kennedy was
quite obviously derived wholesale
from Pope John’s call to the nations.
If that papal pronouncement of ap-
peasement had not been made, |
cannot conceive that he could have
repudiated containment with such
profound emotion or with such in-
tellectual conviction.

Before he was elected, did any
one foresee this particular advantage
in having a Catholic in the White
House?”

Death Of
Kennedy’s Son

The U. S. first family was
struck by grief on Thursday
night when Patrick, infant
second son of President and
Mrs. Kennedy, died ma
Boston hospital a g ed one
day.

The boy, five weeks pre-
mature and weighing 44 Ibs,
had beenstrug giing to

sudden birth ata naval

from her third Caesarian

Dominica’s New

Schools

Inhabitants of Paix Bouche and
Bense were gratified to have a new
school each, opened on Thursday
August rst in the presence of Min-
iste s, Officials, guests and local
residents, The two schools cost
$49,500 each and can accomodate
200 pupils apiece, The buildings
were blessed by Rev. Father Vison-
neau, and the fuactions were presided
over by H. H. the Administrator.
School children expressed their joy
by singing.

Disarmament Proceeds

Meanwhile the disarmament con-
ference at Geneva has resumed in an
unusually cordial spirit, the Soviet
delegate Mr. Tsarakin claiming
the Moscow agreement showed the
“correctness” of co-existence and
the Britisn delegate Mr. Peter Tho-
mas emphasising that a total ban on
nuclear tests should be the eventual
goal. As Mr. Macmillan said in
his statement after the treaty signing,
perhaps the log-jam has been clear-
ed and the world will soon move
on to wage the new war on poverty
and hunger.

Barbados Choir Visits
Singers Warmly Received

A fine choir from Barbados whose choral services are
given ‘‘for the animation of the sick and incapacitated”
landed in Dominica last Thursday from MV “Federal
Palm’, accompanied by the Tfon. Mr. Da Costa Edwards
(their Minister of Social Services). They were met by Hon.
W.S. Stevens. The Choir went into action and sang al-
most immediately, visiting Princess Margaret Hospital dur-
ing the same afternoon, and performing at Pointe Michel
at 3 p,m.

Director Arrived Early

There are $y members of the group, and their founder-
director, Mr. Harold Rock, came here a week before-
hand to make neccessary arrangements. The Choir ladies
have been accommodated in the Domestic Science Centre
and the men at the Grammar School. On Friday they en-
tertained Infirmary residents before lunch, and sang at St.
Joseph during the evening. A collection is taken during
public performances to help defray their transportation costs
and assist the institutions. Expressions of gratitude towards .

THE KENYA INSTITUTE

DOMINICA HERALD

OF ADMINISTRATION

BY ALAN SIMMANCE
( Vice-Principal)

The importance of taining institutes in public ad-
ministration has been increasingly recognised by develop-
ing countries in recent years. In Kenya, the decision to
establish an Institute of Administration followed rapidly
on the Lancaster House Conference of 1960, which set an
entirely new pace of constitutional change for the Colony.

It was followed by a conference on the Public
Service which led in turn to the creation within Govern~
ment of a Service and Training Branch. One of the
functions of this branch is to locause the Civil Service at
the greatest speed consistent with the maintenance of
efficient standards. Fundamental to the success of a
policy of localisation is the existence of proper training
facilities for the higher cadre of the Service. It was in
order to provide such facilities that the Kenya Institute of
Administration was opened in July, 1901.

The Institute was fortunate in that a site of sufficient
size and conveniently close to Nairobi was immediately
available for occupation. This was the area of the old
Jeanes School at Lower Kabete, which was taken over
after many years of useful foundation work in the training
field. The Institute’s first course consisted of 22 students
drawn from the ranks of serving officers of the Provincial
Administration and the Labour Department, and sent
into training for six months to qualify fer appointment as
District and Labour Officers.

In less than two yeats, the student population has
risen to over 300, studying in one or another of four
different departments, and preparing for a variety of Cen-
tral and Local Government posts. The Institute already
has'some 700 past students and has not only. diversified
its studies. Ba expanded them’ enormously. in auality_and
scope. Moreover, the physical development of the site
has gone hand in hand with the increase in the size of the
student community.

~ Generous financial assistance from the Agency for
International Development of the United States Govern-
ment has enabled a modern class-room bluck to be con-
structed as well as four new Halls of Residence, a dining
hall and a lounge. A new library with space for 10,000
books is about tc be built through A. I. D. funds, and
the Kenya Government is undertaking the extensive
reconstruction and renovation of an old dining hall and
common room inherited trom Jeanes School and still in
use by a large part of the student body.

By the end of 1963, when the current building pro-
gramme should be completed, the physical aspect of the
Institute will be impressive indeed. Already it presents
an institutional asset, of which any Government might be
proud.

Under the overall direction of the Principal, the In-
stitute now has four autonomous Departments, each under
its own head and with its own qualified lecturing staff.
These are:

@ The Department of Public Administration,

@ The Department of Executive Training,

@ The Department of Local Government,

@ The Communiy Development Training Centre

The Department of Public Administration, whose Head is also Vice-

Principal and Director of Swudies for the Institute as a whole, conducts
courses in public administration for higher administrative cadres of the
civil service. These courses cater not only for the new intake of univer-
sity graduates into the services, but for piomising field officers at the
lower level who are considered suitable material for training for promo-
tion.

Each course lasts for six which have become an accepted
months, and studies are centred part of public administration — train-
around the main subjects of ing at the advanced level.

politics and government, with an
emphasis throughout on the _practi-
cal skills and techniques which the

four; five courses have already passed
through the Institute, and a sixth is
in residence. On the successful
completion of their course, officers

are posted either io the ceniral
government as assistant secretaries Or
to the fizld as district officers. The
object of the course is not, therefore,
to prepare a man for a specific as-
signment as a secretariat official or
regional administrator, but rather to
equip him wita the basic skills and
background knowledge which he
will need in- either capacity.

The governmental
machinery of Kenya
has been built up with the genera-
list administrator as its foundation.
There ic nu reason to believe that,
aithough the political framework is
changing, the essential character of
the administrative task will alter.

The Department of Public Ad-
ministration also conducts courses at
a less advanced level for the district
cadre of the administrative service.
These officers are the principal exe-
cutants of government policy at the
level of day-to-day field administra~
tion, and they come to the Instituce
for a three months’ course, designed,
not as a venue of promotion, but to
enable them to discharge their duties
with greater efficiency and expertise.

They study all aspects of basic
administration from stores’ control
to the performance of limited —ma-
gisterial functions. In addition.
they are given an insight into the
wider spheres of policymaking,
which they must)be able to inter~
pret af not initiate directly. _

KE ie se

‘As an extension of the Insticute’s
current programme, plans already in
preparation for a series of short sen-
icr courses, designed to provide train.
ing in decision-.naking and policy-
formulation for local officers who
are destined tc fill the most senior
posts in the future Civil Service.

These courses will be conducted
under the direction of the Depart-
ment of Public Administration, but
will be of a participant snd problem-
solving nature, with lectures provide
by persons of eminence in every
walk of life. The courses will also
be a new departure for the Institute
in that they wili be attended not
only by civil servants, but by senior
or potentially senior executive indus-
try Wich the approach of in depend-
ence, i: is essential that leaders in
every field mect together and tackle
their problens ina spirit of mutual
endeavour and understanding. A
series of short courses of this nature
should do a great deal to fulfil the
necd for traming and co-operation
at the highest level of administrative
activity. /

The Department of Executive
Training at the Institute is designed
to train executive
officers for che central government
and the regions. The officers train-
ed are drawn entirely from the cleri-
cal grades of the government service,
and are selected for their excutive
potential and for the branch
of executive work for
which they are best fitted through
the medium of a one week’s assess-
ment course at the Institute.

If they are successful in passing the
assessment standards, they return to

blishments. 148 officers have so far
compleied these courses or are nearing
the end of their studies; they will
provide the backbone of the middle
executive service of the government
for many years to come

Ata higher Jevel of executive
traing, two advanced executive
courses of six months’ duration are
already in progress and will be succee-
ded by further series. These courses
which are extremely intensive in
character, aim at producing men to
assume the most senior posts in the
executive giades. Students are
chosen for training through a system
of interviews under the guidance of
the Civil Service Commussion,

They can look forward to even-
tual appointment to positions at the
top level of the executive cadre, as
chief accountants and chief
establishment officers, Their traning
is vital, not only because the majority
of such posts are currently held by
expatriates, but also because on their
effective functioning so much of the
government machine depends.

In the department of Local
Government — as the name implies
-— the student body is drawn from
the staffs of local anthoritits through-
out Kenya, with a number from
Tanganyika as well.

Courses are at two. levels, the
higher of which prepares, students
for. the intermediate examinations of

_—vevthar heclensine aaa

Treasurers and) Accountants or the
Corporation of Secretaries.’

These students. will, after a year’s
course, be qualified to the intermedi-
ated standard of international recog-
nised professional bodies, and will
assume the more senior posts in the
local government service.

Ata less advanced level, courses
are conducted for local authority
accounts and secretaria) staff, and
these also prepare for examinations
set by the professional bodies men-
tioned above,

Local authorities pay {or their
students to attend courses in the
department, but have been assisted
by bursaries provided by the Agency
for International Development,

The Community Development
Training Centre operates under the
overall direc.ion of the Ministry of
Social Development as a part of the
Tastitute, It trains not only comm.
unity development officers and assis-
tants, but provides also a wide
range of short courses in the princi-
ples and practice of community
development for youth leaders and
the organisers of women's clubs.

After ten years of continuous as-
sociation first with Jeanes School and
latterly with the Kenya Institure of
Admunistration, the East African
School of Co-operation closed at
the end of 1962. Originally an in-
ter-territorial training institution for
the officers of co-operative depart-
ments and the managers of
co operative societies throughout
East Africa, its closure was the result
of the decision of the Uganda Gov-
ernment in 1959 and the Tangan-
yika Government in 1962 to
establish their own training facilities
in their own countries.

However the need for the Kenya
Government to continue with the
training of its own co-operative







personnel is as pressing as ever, pat-
ticularly with the development of
agricultural settiement schemes in
the scheduled areas of the Colony.
It is aoped, ‘therefore, that training
in co-operation will soon ‘be recom~
mend ona Kenya basis avd will
again form part of the general train-
ing function at Kabere,

What is the fiture? The aca-
demic side of the Institute curricu-
lum is about to be strengthened by
the addition to the regular teaching
staff of five university specialists pro-
vided by Syracuse University,
New York, which throughout the
Institute's shert life has been an.
active and valued ally.

The range of skills which these
specialists will cover includes not
only subjects such as comparative
government and economics in which
direct instruction is required, but
also the provision of audio-visual
aids and advice on the latest teach-
ing tuethods and techniques. They
will work under the direction of the
Principal as an integral part of the
institue staff and will undoubtedly
have a unique contribution to make
to the wider development of the
training programme.

The nature of the training provi-
ded at the Institute and the type of
course conducted, are kept under
constant review. As general educa-
tional standards improve, the stand-
ard of learning imparted must ris€
also.

There will be a place — and an
important place — for. research,
which the exigencies of the prog.)
ramme have not so fat allowed : ex-
cept on a limited scale.. A start has:

Tnstitute. with itssown \ instructional
material and text books: particularly
suited to East Afiican needs; the
publication ot an institute journal is
now under consideration and will be
an essential development for the In-
stitute to maintain its status and pres-
tige. The field of public adminis-
tration training is still in many ways
embryonic, and a receptiveness to
new ideas and stimuli will be in the
future a vital prerequisite of progress.
The essential function of the Kenya
Institute of Administration has never
been better expressed than by Sir
Patrick Renison, the then Governor
of Kenya, when he laid the founda-
tion stone of the main tuition block
on the sth January 1962. He con-
cluded his speech with these words:
“TI would wish that we have jointly
created today an Institution that witl,
over the years, gain a reputation for
producing Civil Servants of the big-
gest integrity and ability and that will
be honoured throughout Africa for
the spirit of Service that it has
instilled’.

! from Leads :
; “WORRELL HAS MADE |
- HISTORY” y



A TRIBUTE TO A TRUE LEADER

‘Tere in this do w n-to-
earth north of England in-
dustrial city there is a feeling
of great loss. Not over the
English defeat in the fourth
Test match, but because
Frank Worrell, a West In-
dian, won’t pass this way
again.

Frank Woriell and his
team, first in Australia a
couple of years ago, and now
in England, have added a
new dimension to cricket
history.

Itis tragic, andI am
being practical, not senti-
mental, that this West In-
dies tourof England 1s
Frank W orrell’s last as
Captain.

From being the best ever
of West Indies’ skippers,
the one who has taught
West Indians how to stand
firm in) adversity, the one
who had to. wait too. long
for his inheritance, he wilt

lectured a f:w only of his
men on taking courses to
bring their general know-
ledge of the appurtenances
of hfe up to the siandard
expected from so prominent
a personage as a Test crick-
eter; on cricket he lectured
nobody.

“If something was
wrong, he told them what
was right and left ic to them.

“These words will always
ming 1a my ears. They are
something new, not only in
West Inetes cricket but in
West Indies life West
Indians can often tell you
what is wrong and sume
even what will make it right,
but they don’t leave it to

you. Worrell did. It is
the ultimate expression of a
most finished personality,

who knows his business,

theory and practice, and

knows modern men.”
Every. member of, the

soon-return-té-being Werden W. est

of the University College of:
the West Indies in Jamaica.

‘The present West Indies
team is probably the strong
est cricket combination 1n
the world. It will remain
good, when Worrell 1s using
his own time and his own
petrol to run students toa
sports field that, in his young
days, he’d have walked to
without a thouj,h. But
will ic cver be so good
again?

No appointment in the
West Indies was ever so
universally and warmly ap-
proved as thatof Frank
Worrell as Captain.

West Indians crowding
to Tests bring with them the
whole past history and
future hopes of the islands.
In Worrell, the last of the
three W’s, they have been
prepared to parade their
worldly goods.

These were duly recog-
nised when at the end of
Worrell’s Australian tour, a

uarter of a million people
filled the Melbourne streets
in a spontaneous gesture to
bid fareweil to the West
Indians. One people
speaking to another.

C.L.R. James, in his
superb “Beyond a Bound-
ary, writes: ‘As, everybody
knows, the tour began bad-
ly. But, said Worrell, he

wotld do anything for Frank
Worrell.) I am wondering
what the West Indies will
do without him.

With no disrespect to
younger members of his
side — they are the first to
see it— itis going to be very
difficult to find a successor.
He has set such a high stan-
dard.

He has expatided the con-
ception of West Indian
personality. With all the
West Ind‘an ease, humour
and easy adaptation to envi-
ronment, Frank Worrell has
won new friends for the
West Indies wherever he
has travelled.

As Leeds is missing him
today, soall England is
going to miss Frank Worrell
the man, just as much as
Frank Worrell, master crick-
eter, tomorrow.

success for the joint industrial coun-
cil could only be assured if the par-
ties entered it freely and with a will
to succeed, ‘It should have for its
purpose not only the negotiation of
wages and conditions, but also, tt
should provide the medium through
which discussions can take place for
promoting the welfare of the workers,

or improving employer-worker
relations and for the general efficiency
of the industry, It should not mect
only in the shadow of a trade
dispute.”

Trade Union
“Third Force’

New Development In

GEORGE TOWN, BRITISH
GUIANNA, CP:— A Tirade Union
third force has now begun to take
shape 1n British Guiana, where the
Trades Union Council recently
fought an eighty-day’ general strike
battle, successfully defending the free
Labour Movement against a Gov-
etnment bid for control through
legislative means. It 1s sponsored
by Nicholas Pollard, joint-Sectetary
(for the British Caribbean) of’ the
Latin — American Ccnfederation
of Christian Trade Union. A
new Guiana conftdrition of
Christian and believizg trade unions
and allied organizations has been

formed and a temporary executive
council elected.

Two other forces in being are
the Trade Union Council with its
25 affitiates on one hand, and the
Guiana Agucukural workers Union
sponsored by the ruling Jaganist
party on the other.

‘Capitalist Slaves”

In a radio broadcast Pollard
attacked American unions as “slaves
te the capitalist system.’ Calling
on workers and peasant farmers’
organizations to jon the new move-
ment Pollard declared the Christian
trade union system is the social and
economic system that ca-1 stop peo
ple from goit.g socialist oc commu-
nist. As for old capitel sm everyone
is fed up with it and fed up with
the kind of unions that support it.”

Editorial note: This developinent
and Mr. Pollard’s statement will be of
interest to our readers who have studied

VICTORY OF THE COMMON MAN

Te signing of a nuclear test ban agree-

ment between world powers,
divorced though it may be from s mall
every day currents of reality (since few
humble citizens could have imagined
themselves present at the ceremonial), 1s
not so much a victory for either of the
Mr. Ks, Mr. M., or any other glorified
initial representing power. It is a victory
for the common man, and we acknow-
ledge it as such while we pay tribute to
those. who stepped across the chasm and
did the obvious thing.

For years now it has become increas-
ingly plain that the little man, the man
in the street, the ordinary family (whether
living in New York, London or Lenin-
grad) took exception to the potential
havoc and pollution embodied in nuclear
bomb, tests — wherever ‘they were to be
held.; At first these objections were mild
and muted: after all, the big-shots, the

statesmen, the -peon!ena above said that_

these tests were necessary for national
security. But as time went on the rum-
blings of anxiety and the grumblings of
discontent became louder, and scientists
had something to say, too. Finally
Churchmen spoke out. A few “crazy
idiots” staged demonstrations. It was at
last perceived by the very highest authori-
ties that human beings took strong except-
ion to nuclear bomb tests. And so a
pact has been signed; details of the nego-
tiations ap pear inthis newspaper on
page one,

Of course the triumph is a limited one
so far. It does not mean that nuclear
bombs or similar other deadly means of
mass extermination have been abolished:
far from it. This is only the first step
towards a general extension of interna-
tional decency: yet everyone knows the
importance of overcoming the obstruct-
ions of pride and past history which pre-
vent the peoples of the earth from reach-
ing an understanding. In this instance,
certain praise must goto President Ken-

nedy, who has grasped the concept “A
clash of doctrines is not a disaster —- it is
an opportunity,” and followed wise
counsel.

Yet though it is but a first step (and
even the ban does not include under-
ground tests) and not a sweeping victory
for common sense and the continuaticn
of life on this globe — since the vast
Chinese Republic has not assented, and
France has drawn aside — it isa very
important signing and a still more im-
portant sign. Itisa sign that some of
the world’s leaders at least have realised
the dangers to which these rival tests were
subjecting their unwilling and sometimes
unwitting populations. ‘‘Ouce you have
unbridled fozces which you will be
powerless to co pe with, then however
matters go, you will be ruined at the end
of the tragedy.” Those words were
written by Engels in 1887; but they ‘are

We realise all too -well that armaments
mean employment; nuclear bomb pro-
duction and launching sites mean vast
national spending, and that sometimes
(though not invariably) threats act as a
deterrent. These are among the argu-
ments which will be used to pcstpone
the abolition of the globe’s worst menace,
the nuclear bomb itself. But listen to
this:

‘All must realise that there is no hope
of putting an end to the building up of
armaments, nor of reducing the present
stocks, nor, still less, of abolishing them
altogether, unless the process is complete
and thorough and _ unless it proceeds from
inner conviction: unless, that is, everyone
sincerely co-operates to banish the fear and
anxious expectation of war with which
men are oppressed.”

Who said those words? Not the litle
man in the street who had been thinking
along those lines, nor the humble editor
of the HERALD, but the late Pope John
XXIII on rith April, 1963.

WELCOME, SWEET SONGSTERS

It is a wonderful treat for us to be privil-
eged to hear a first-class Barbados Choir,
and the HERALD joins in welcoming those
inspired choristers to the island of Dom-
inica. They have come to bring tidings
of comfort and joy to ill and distressed
persons in our community, as well as
much pleasure to the average music-lover.
They are not confining their recitals to
Roseau alone, but will strike out into
country districts and bring with them the

blended notes of unselfish friendship.
Just as the church choirs of English medie-
val days sometimes took along with them
mummers and mimers to entertain the
populace, we learn that these West Indian
singers have amongst them soloists and
tap dancers; their Minister of Social Ser-
vices has also favoured Dominica with
his presence. We thank them all for com-
ing and wish them a happy tour.

IN THE CABINET

By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter IX

It was Tuesday, Council of State day. Normally
on Tuesday, ivstead of going to the Minister, 1 would
telephone to find out if there were any urgent matters for me to
deal with, and if not Nicholas would call for me in his
yellow taxi and drive me straight to the Governor Gen-
eral’s House. On this day I summoned Nicholas early
and we drove to the Ministerial buildings, then known as
Federal fouse. He deposited me and my portfolio, which
already felt like a sack of stones, in the narrow alleyway
which served as a parking-place. Two Members of the
Federal Parliament were standing in the sunshine besice a
car, with their backs turned; as I moved into the shadow
of a doorway I heard the Prime Minister’s name spoken
low, and something in the tone of the speaker, some
note of derision, held methere. I heard the MP say:

“Yes, he recovered. It would have been sordid to die
of a bad foot.”

The other M.P. said: ‘Next time it might be a pro-
per thrombosis.”

“© come, come,” said the first Member. ‘““You mustn’t
wish sudden death even to a Colonial Office stooge.”

The other parried, “All T want is to see this tomfool
weakling Government crack up. As it will, soon. I
don’t care how.”

“With their majority, one vote of no confidence’in
the House,” said the original speaker.

“Or the defection of one or two
still, of a Minister — ”

They came around the corner. and there was something in the ten-
seness of my beating which alarmed them. They fell silent, then mum-
bled goodmorning. I went up the stairs, dragging my leather case, _ while

wit

wild indignation, but I attempted to be detached and indifferent,
This was impossible. I knew it was more important to be, a human
being than to be a Minister of State.

The Governor General’s House was a noble grey stone mansion set
amidst spacious lawns; the council chamber there, in which we held our
earliest meetings, was like a large dining-room, air-conditioned to the point ,
of frigidity. The Governor-General suffered intensely from our tropical ©
heat. His bearing was handsome and formal and he disliked the casual
unpunctuality of many West Indians, 8

On this day the Prime Minister was alarmingly late. After a wait
of nearly three-quarters of an hour he came in, walking very slowly,
unabashed looking. He apologised in his courteous deprecatory voice}

“I’m sorry, Your Exceilency. I had to go to a funeral.”*

“I’m sorry, too,” said His Excellency, his features hardly _relenting.

“You sec, Sir, I suddenly heard . . . There was an old white man
—musi have been over eighty if a day. He died yesterday. He used to
be my schoolmaster. Died very poor. I heard of the burial late, and
felt I ought to go. So I followed the coffin.”

I took off my dark glasses and turned a melancholy gaze full on the
Prime Minister, He was smiling, just as Sese smiled when she was
deeply sad. I heard him say in an aside, “one of the best teachers I ever
knew.” His voice was full of authentic affection. I hastily put my
glasses on aga‘n .. . The President was saying: ‘‘Arising out of the
minutes, I understand there is a correction, . .”

There it was, the implication of ‘universal love’ which overshot
limitations of race, social status, and personal discomfort The Prime
Minister of our uneasy little near nation, a sick man, had risen early to
attend the funeral of a poor old white man, unknown to me, who had
been a teacher; trudging after the bier to incur the displeasure of his col-
league the Governor General, another white man. I realised then more
clearly than ever what the P, M. stood for, and heard with new conscious-
ness the voice of the enemy in the alleyway:

“Better still -— the defection of a Minister,””

In the break for coffee, Teacher spoke to me. ‘‘Why so serious?

Have you been to the funeral tooz”

Most Modern Method

Above all, do not con-
fuse weight training with
weight-lifting, a competitive
spott in which the object is
to lift the maximum weight,
once, in a certain way.

Weight traiaing, some-
times referred to as resistance
exercises, is the most up-to-
date method of keeping the
human body in peak condi-
tion. It isa sure way to
quick results in improving
your physique or figure —
and your health.

There are now thousands
of weight training clubs and
groups all over the world,
and many people of all ages
carry out resistance exercises
at home.

ducing these exercises in
their physical training pro-

A piece of pipe about an
inch-and-a-half in diameter
would do.

Then you need six metal
discs with holes to nt on to
the bar, weighing from two-
and-a-half o ten pounds
each.

They must be in pairs of
the same weight and you
must have some sort of
screw ot collar to fasten
them on the barso they
cannot slip off and injure
you. qn
different weights give you
room for progressiong

The only difference is
that girls should choose
much lighter weights than
boys and do fewer repeti-

to see how much you can
lift, but to do the exercises
correctly.

articles for “loosening 1p”

training sessions. Try ten
of each of these to start with.

1. This is called the Press.

Bend your knees, take hold
of the bar and, using your legs
and back, pull it co your chest

up» Then press the bar ab-
ove your head, keeping it as
near to your face as you can.
Do not look at the bar or
hollow your back, and keep
your fect fiirmly on the floor.
Breathe in as you press up,
out as lower to starting posi-
tion, This is a shoulder and
back exercise.

Upright rowing. With a
natrow grip, hands over the

with the under grip with your

hands about hip width apart.
Bring the bar outwards and
upwards in a curve from your

This is an upper arm and
wrist exercise.

about 18 inches high. Hold
the bar above your kead with

a fairly wide grip. Lower the

JOHN HEARNE ON W. I.
SOCIETY

By HERALD Literary Club Reporter
Age Of Risk’

Only twentytwo persons
of the 13,000 residents of
Roseau found time to listen
to a lecture by famous West
Indian. Author John Hearne
on “The Age of Risk” or
“some Reflections on the

Coming Patterns in W. I.
Culture,” at the D.G. S.
premises on Wednesday
evening.

“None of us in the West
Indies is quite sure of
what we are going to be at
the end ofa second federa-
tion...up to a few years
ago our history has had a
very crucl face — we labour-
ed to produce wealth for
others to spend — but with
the social and political up-
heavals of the 1930's it be-

must be from the head, from
the imagination,” stated the
author of “voices under the
Window’’.
Federation And Fear

In an apt digression the lecturec ,
stated that the breaking up of the
W.L, Federation was superficial and
momentary and that the federation
failed because of fear of taking decis-
ions, fear of errors of judgement,
fear of disturbing old patterns and
fear that preliminany pains would
make us look ridiculous in the eyes
of the world.

Nervous Society

“The Wes: Indies today is the
most nrvous society that I know.
Everyone scems to fecl that we are
treading on the edge of an important
and crucial discovery of ourselves.
We are definitely in a state of severe
crisis in our development and to help
ourselves we must engage ina ceaseless
dialogue with each other. There
must be a ceaseless enquiry”. he

After stating that the WI, today |
have no common identity (without
which the future is grim) and'that.a -
nation or man who does not know. °
who he is, is not worthy of indepen-
dence, the ‘speaker: wenton to say,

tions and traditions, any literate,

have a profound effect on society.

Elusive Exposition

Due to paucity of attendance’
(C.H.S. Speech Night, an annual
event, took place onthe same
pight), John Hearne’s first talk here
in many decades was considerably
shortened: however vote-of-thanks
mover Ce-operatives officer J. Barzey
found it an ‘‘Elusive exposition’’,

On Thursday evening at the same
venue Mr. John Hearne lectured
on ‘The W.I. image and W.I.

munication within the area and with the rest of the wozld are best served by

ships trading in the area whether or not it is decided that the existing ser~
vices should be preserved.

Sports Hero

Sir,

Tt was regretable that no men-
tion was made in the Wednesday
issue of the Dominica Chronicle
of the gallant deed done by Mr,
Patrick. Pierre during the sports
event taking plac: on Sunday 4th
August at the Windsor Park, when
he'Izape and intercepted a bad throw
of the discus which was travelling | ¢

—at_gicat speed into the crowd of
Spectators occupying the stand.

At the , time of interception the
discus was flying straight at the head
of a little girl of about 6 years.

Ithink it a truly great deed and
offer Mr Pierre my sincerest con-
gratulations.

Sir, — As the caterpillar is not on
the road and I ama staunch read-

something about — ‘So They Say’.

The first ume I saw you was
when I came from England and
you were giving a reply to a
controversial question eoncerning
E,B. Henry and Mr. Joshua at the
Market Place—one of your greatest
speecnes ever before your disinissal;
in my opinion Dominica has lost a
great public figure.

I wish I could see. our friend who

Dominica can prosper: Land-tax,
oh friend! I am quite hippy to say
that I have seen the Windward Is-
lands and Jand-tax is not the answer
to help us here. Sir, let us look at
one of our disadvantages here —
no agricultural bank, no roads, no
public transport, These are a few
things I mention butte pay a land-tax
is a hard one.

Put a road programme in, public
transport, and an agricultural bank
in the country, to mention a few
things that will help Dominica: any
expert will say the same thing, Ie is
not easy to get by in tilling the soil
here with all these disadvantages.
One thing I am quite sure of is —
there are quite a few people who

‘SO THEY SAY”--
BY BOB & RAY

Early in July each year we have been in the habit of slowly building
up a supply of “hurricane stores” in our home. We start out by stocking
afew pounds of Hour, sugar, butter and some matches. These we put
into speccial plastic coutamners so they won’t get wet — when the roof
blows off! And each week during July we add a few items of food to
our meagre larder: some corned beef, sardines. scup, instant coffee. We
cannot afford to get it all at once but its 2 steady increase so by the mid-
dle of August we have what we consider to be enough things to
tide us over a period of a week or ten days.

But last Sunday morning the news on the radio about Tropical
Storm Arlene b:gan to concera us. We felt this storm might possibly
strike Dominica and for ‘he first time in years we tned some other
hurricane precautions. Even though the sun was shining and it seemed
like a beautiful day, we were upset by ihe clearness of the atmosphere.
One could see great detail miles away and this we knew is a_ portent of a
big storm. The clouds were very high in the blue sky bue they seemed to
just hang there not mov.ng, and they were long and stringy, not flat and
fleecy like regular clouds, The next bulletinon the radio an hour later
I spoke of the storm 200 miles directly east of Marigot — but headed nor-
th-northwest — or did the man say west-northwest? Suppose he was
wrong, and it was really headed west!

That did it! We decided tc close the storm shutters - - not that
the weather outside warranted it, but we langhingly explained to the others
that we might as well have “practice” or what the army calls a dry run.
So we began to close the heavy shutters that have just been hanging on

jtheir hinges for these many years. Imagine our surprise to find many of
them would not close properly, the hinges were so badly rusted. So we oil-
ed the hinges and made bars for those that were missing. When finally,
we found it had take us around three hours to shut the house up properly
— and this in bread daylight! We are alarmed at this and mentioned
what it might be if we had to do this at night, 1n a howling gale of wind
and rain. But it was good practice. The storm did not strike Domin-
ica but if we have to close up for another storm, we at least are familiat
with the shutter problem and could, if need be, do it inthe dark rather
quickly we think,

Buc while we were about this dry run getting ready for a hurricane to
strike, we felt some extra water in the house would be a good thing It
took us sume time to locate a suitable drum for this supply of water; to
clean it out.and make a stand for it where the wind . would not knock i
over. Then, with a length of rubber hose, we filled the drum with drink-
ex-from che-tap,—The water from the pipe, we hac, siould either
not be owing or would not be safe to drink if a real storm struck since
high winds and heavy rains quickly knock out most man-made things
like water pipes and reservoirs. A gallon or two of kerosene is part of
our “hurricane stores”? as the electric will surely be off for many days after
a big storm.

We always feel a trifle silly sturing up food this way but if imagi-
nation is worth anything at all (added to the things we have seen and read
about the hurricane’s power), ws would feel a lot less silly if other people
also stocked up some food too! We have a great respect for the hurricane.
It is the most powerful thing in nature, Next to the power of the sun it-
self, a hurricane puts ovt more energy than any oth ¢ force on eatth —more
than the largest earthquake — and hundreds of umes more powerful even
than man’s best H-bombs! If it were possible to harness the power of just
one ord:nary-sized hurricane, it would supply enough energy to run ail the
motors of the world, light every ciry, drive every ship for a hundred years.

Having studied hurricanes, talked with the m:n who Aly the airplanes
looking for hurricanes and plotting their size, direction, intensity, we feel
in great awe of these storms and can visualise Roseau, for example, delug-
ed by a flood of rain water from the mountains and lashed by a food of

water from the sea so that there is not a p rticle of dry food to be found in
town. This alarms us and that is why we put food aside, safely cached,
But upon questioning others we learn we are almost alone in this habit.

Of course nowadays the world is conscious of the sufferings of people
hard-hit by tropical storms, The Red Cross and other reliet organisations
usually rush in the day after the storm and set up kitchens and first aid
centres to c2re for the illestarred populace. But could hug: suppy planes
land at Melville Hallz Would we have to wait for help to arrive by boat?
This might take a week, and in a week a person can become very very,
hungry! And somehow, we would rather eat our own food, and prepare
it Ourselves) than to wait for some people to bring us food from some



have land on the road and will not
rent or sell. One thing I know is if
we could get as many strangers as
pos ible they would bring in their
ideas, both bad and good. Any
government that can succeed in giv-
ing us these things I mention —
public transport and an agricultural
loan bank — will by that time hit
the nail on the head, By the way,
I heard a few of my friends talking
toa Bajan, and he said, “What
Dominica wants first is National

and child play their part.’

relief warehnuse. In all the hurricane precaut‘on advice we have
seen, scldom is a safe supply of food mentioned. They tell you not to
cat food from a refrigerator from which the electric supply has been cut
off for several days since the food would be poisonous. How true. But
what shall we cat and how shall we cook what food we may be lucky
enough to find? A few chocolate bars wrapped up in a plastic sack,
some raisins, a few tins ot meat, a tin of biscuits would be nice to have in
the house.

Remember, hurricane season is supposed to be officially over each
year in November (but the last oae to strike Dominica did so Iate in
December!) so you can consume your hurricane stores wher the season is
finished, Just remember to stock up again next June — and next time
add some tins of Domfruit juice. Not only does it help to wash down
those dry biscuits but itsa Dominican product and will help local _ busi-
ness if you will buy locai products! So they say.

‘THIS DECISIVE HOUR

The following words hy the Rev.
Martin Luther King, famous U. S.
preacher and opposer of race in-
justice, are reprinted from “British
Weekly”’.

1 Love the church; I love her
sacred walls. How could I do
otherwise? I am = in the rather
unique position of beng the son,
the grandson and the great grandson
of preachers. Yes, 1 see the church
as the bedy of Christ. But, oh!
How we have blemished and scarred
the body through social neglect and
fear of being np ncorils reuists

There was a time when the church
was very powerful, It was during
that period when the early Christians
rejoiced shen they were deemed
worthy to suffer for what they
believed. In those days the church
was not merely a thermometer that
recorded the ideas and principles of
popular opinion; it was the thermo-
stat that transformed the mores of
soeiety, Wherever the early Chris-
tians entered a town the power
structure got disturbed and imme
diately sought to convict them for
being ‘-disturbers ot the peace” and
“outside agitators.” But they went
on with the conviction that they

Liston — Clay Bout Called Off

Sonny Listo*, World Heavywe ghe
Champion, 1a: called off his atle
fight with Cassius Clay because of
tax problems, The fight was due to
take place in New York on Septem-
ber 30th. Liston’s decision means
that Clay will bave to wait until
next year for his chance at the ute.
At his Louiswille appartment on
Tuesday, Clay’s comment was,
"T’ve got tax problems too. Liston
is scared to death of me’’.

Iam in complete agreemet with
Clay. Liston's excuse isa flimsy
one. Both fighters have tax problems,
so the easiest solution would be to
stage the fight either in Canada or
England, out of reach of the U. S.
Income Tax collectors.

Why is Liston aftaid? Til tell
you. He’s gota terrific punch in
both hands, but he likes his oppon-
ents to “‘bring the fight’? to him.
Most of his opponents so far have
done just that and paid the penalty.
Clay, on the other hand is a great
counter puncher and_ will wait for
Liston to come and get him. Liston
would‘have to’ change his style and
between now and September is too
short a time to do so effectively.

Two months ago, Liston told his
manager that he wanted Clay for a
Christmas present. Now he has his

present within his grasp, he has

refused it. Rather like Julius Ceasar;
don’t. you’ think so? Meanwhile,
Clay. will not be idle, he has
immediately stated negotiations to
meet Brian sondon inthe near
future.

Athletics

An all-island Athletics meet
sponsored by the Jaycees during the
holiday weekend, ended in victories
for D.G.S. (men) and Invincibles
(ladies). D.G.S finished with 57
points and Invincibles with 374
points. Victor Ludorum was Benoit
Laville of D.G.S., who threw the
Javelin 187‘s** (far below his best),
threw the cricket ball x07 yds. and
the Discus 1218”. Laville also
won the shot put with a throw of
38°10 and Pole Vaulted 10’6”,
Other outsanding athletes were P.
Blaize of Combermere who covered
3 miles in 18 minutes 17 seconds
and won the 8 mile Cross Country
race, and R. Harris who won the
440 yds and 880 flat races, Among
the ladies, F. Harris of Y.C. W. run
oo yds in 13 seconds, high Jumped
4’1“ and long jumped 13’5””.

Netball

Teams from tne Caribbean area
have so far performed fairly well in
the Netball Tournament at East-
bourne in England. So far, Trini-
dad have won four matches out of
five, Jamaica three out of five and
the West Indies two out of five.
New Zealand and Australia have so
far dominated the Tournament.

New Zealand, hitherto undefeat-
ed, were beaten on Thursday 37
goals to 36 by Australia. Australia
now lead with 10 points from five
games, while England, New Zea-
land and Trinidad each have 8
points from five games.

The New Zealand team made
netball history last Saturday when
they beat Northern Ireland by 112
goals to 4.

‘BRITAIN, U.S. AND SOVIETS SIGN TREATY

Ban Dangerous Tests

On August sth 1963, three big World Powers took the
first step towards safety when Great Britain, the United
States of America and the Union of Socialists Soviet
Republics signed a partial nuclear test ban treaty with full
formality in the Kremlin Grand Palace in Moscow.
Signatories were the Foreign Ministers of the three states,
Lord Home, Mr. Dean Rusk and Mr. Andrei Gromyko,
and the pact was witnessed by the Secretary General of
the United Nations, U Thant, who flew to Moscow

especially for the occasion.
Ban-The Bombers Claim Credit

Premier Krushchev, who also wit-
nessed the signing, said that it cli-
maxed eight years of hard bargaining
between East and West and came
on the eve of the eighteenth anniver-
sary of the devastation of Hiroshima,
the Japanese city which suffered the
first atomic bomb attack.

In Hiroshima the following day was
held, the Ninth-World Conference
against’ Nuclear borubs, in which
determined ‘‘ban-the-bomb” demon-
strators from all over the world
claimed the treaty as the first break-
through that had resulted from their
devoted efforts to arouse public opin-
ion against the evils of nuclear war,
The Russian, Indian and East
European ‘countries’ delegates took
the opportunity to demonstrate
against the Chinese del e gation
(whose leader spoke against the
bomb) by turning their backs whilst
he denounced the test ban treaty as
“an imperialist plot against the
Chinese masses.” China, wh o
along with France has declined to
sign a treaty, is hoping to produce
her own nuclear bomb in the near
future,

Will Adenauer Sign?

Another possib'e non-signatory
is the West German Republic.
The Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer,
wishes to hold off for the present
since East German Prime Minister
Walter Ulbricht wishes to sign and
Adenauer feels that for West Ger-
many to sign on equal terms would
increase the prestige of East Ger-
many and seem like Western recogn-
ition of the Communist regime:
this is denied by British and Amer-
ican spokesmen. who are encourag-
ing Adenauer to sign.

Rush To Support

An unusual procedure declared
the three original signatories of the
trea. to be legal depository powers.
Thus .1 Thursday copies of the
Treaty were available in Moscow,
London and Washington. The
first to sign in London was the
High Coinmissioners for Canada
and he was quickly followed by over
30 other Commissioners & Ambass-

adors including six from Commun-
ist countries. First to sign in
Washington was the Australian am-
bassador, and in each capital ovet
thirty signatures attested to the de-
sire of most independent countries
in the world to end testing as a first
step to miclear disarmament.

Ratification Required

are
proved. by the Soviet Council of
Ministers, of which Mr. Krushchev
is Chairman, by her Majesty’s Go-
vernment in: Great B.itain (probably
through a courtesy vote in the
Commons), and by two-thirds of
the members present in the Senate of
the United Scates. Statements by
Senator Humphrey, Chairman of
the U. S. Senate’s Disarmament
Committee and several other Sena-
tors indicated that onlv a “‘handful”’
of senate votes will be cast against
the ratification of the treaty — and
this despite Federal expenditure on
armaments amounting to 40% of
the annual budget: a sudden reduc-
tion in U. S. armaments spending
without a carefully planned = switch-
over to civilian-consumption goods
might disrupt the economy and
increase the already high unemploy-
ment figure.

Pope John’s Part

Credit for the treaty gocs to all
three leaders, but as leading British
M, P. and Labour Party commen-
tator R. H. S. Crossman wrote in
the Guardian **Mr. Keanedy deserves
all the praise he will get. But the
man who is, I believe, mainly _ res-
ponsible for the new American
policy was buried recently in Rome.
The philosophy ot peacetul co-exis-
tence outlined by Mr. Kennedy was
quite obviously derived wholesale
from Pope John’s call to the nations.
If that papal pronouncement of ap-
peasement had not been made, |
cannot conceive that he could have
repudiated containment with such
profound emotion or with such in-
tellectual conviction.

Before he was elected, did any
one foresee this particular advantage
in having a Catholic in the White
House?”

Death Of
Kennedy’s Son

The U. S. first family was
struck by grief on Thursday
night when Patrick, infant
second son of President and
Mrs. Kennedy, died ma

The boy, five weeks pre-
mature and weighing 44 Ibs,
had beenstrug giing to

Dominica’s New

Schools

Inhabitants of Paix Bouche and
Bense were gratified to have a new
school each, opened on Thursday
August rst in the presence of Min-
iste s, Officials, guests and local
residents, The two schools cost
$49,500 each and can accomodate
200 pupils apiece, The buildings
were blessed by Rev. Father Vison-
neau, and the fuactions were presided
over by H. H. the Administrator.
School children expressed their joy

Disarmament Proceeds

Meanwhile the disarmament con-
ference at Geneva has resumed in an
unusually cordial spirit, the Soviet
delegate Mr. Tsarakin claiming
the Moscow agreement showed the
“correctness” of co-existence and
the Britisn delegate Mr. Peter Tho-
mas emphasising that a total ban on
nuclear tests should be the eventual
goal. As Mr. Macmillan said in
his statement after the treaty signing,
perhaps the log-jam has been clear-
ed and the world will soon move
on to wage the new war on poverty
and hunger.

Barbados Choir Visits
Singers Warmly Received

A fine choir from Barbados whose choral services are
given ‘‘for the animation of the sick and incapacitated”
landed in Dominica last Thursday from MV “Federal
Palm’, accompanied by the Tfon. Mr. Da Costa Edwards
(their Minister of Social Services). They were met by Hon.
W.S. Stevens. The Choir went into action and sang al-
most immediately, visiting Princess Margaret Hospital dur-
ing the same afternoon, and performing at Pointe Michel
at 3 p,m.

Director Arrived Early

There are $y members of the group, and their founder-
director, Mr. Harold Rock, came here a week before-
hand to make neccessary arrangements. The Choir ladies
have been accommodated in the Domestic Science Centre
and the men at the Grammar School. On Friday they en-
tertained Infirmary residents before lunch, and sang at St.
Joseph during the evening. A collection is taken during
public performances to help defray their transportation costs
and assist the institutions. Expressions of gratitude towards .

THE KENYA INSTITUTE

DOMINICA HERALD

OF ADMINISTRATION

BY ALAN SIMMANCE
( Vice-Principal)

The importance of taining institutes in public ad-
ministration has been increasingly recognised by develop-
ing countries in recent years. In Kenya, the decision to
establish an Institute of Administration followed rapidly
on the Lancaster House Conference of 1960, which set an
entirely new pace of constitutional change for the Colony.

It was followed by a conference on the Public
Service which led in turn to the creation within Govern~
ment of a Service and Training Branch. One of the
functions of this branch is to locause the Civil Service at
the greatest speed consistent with the maintenance of
efficient standards. Fundamental to the success of a
policy of localisation is the existence of proper training
facilities for the higher cadre of the Service. It was in
order to provide such facilities that the Kenya Institute of
Administration was opened in July, 1901.

The Institute was fortunate in that a site of sufficient
size and conveniently close to Nairobi was immediately
available for occupation. This was the area of the old
Jeanes School at Lower Kabete, which was taken over
after many years of useful foundation work in the training
field. The Institute’s first course consisted of 22 students
drawn from the ranks of serving officers of the Provincial
Administration and the Labour Department, and sent
into training for six months to qualify fer appointment as
District and Labour Officers.

In less than two yeats, the student population has
risen to over 300, studying in one or another of four
different departments, and preparing for a variety of Cen-
tral and Local Government posts. The Institute already
has'some 700 past students and has not only. diversified
its studies. Ba expanded them’ enormously. in auality_and
scope. Moreover, the physical development of the site
has gone hand in hand with the increase in the size of the
student community.

~ Generous financial assistance from the Agency for
International Development of the United States Govern-
ment has enabled a modern class-room bluck to be con-
structed as well as four new Halls of Residence, a dining
hall and a lounge. A new library with space for 10,000
books is about tc be built through A. I. D. funds, and
the Kenya Government is undertaking the extensive
reconstruction and renovation of an old dining hall and
common room inherited trom Jeanes School and still in
use by a large part of the student body.

By the end of 1963, when the current building pro-
gramme should be completed, the physical aspect of the
Institute will be impressive indeed. Already it presents
an institutional asset, of which any Government might be
proud.

Under the overall direction of the Principal, the In-
stitute now has four autonomous Departments, each under
its own head and with its own qualified lecturing staff.
These are:

@ The Department of Public Administration,

@ The Department of Executive Training,

@ The Department of Local Government,

@ The Communiy Development Training Centre

The Department of Public Administration, whose Head is also Vice-

Principal and Director of Swudies for the Institute as a whole, conducts
courses in public administration for higher administrative cadres of the
civil service. These courses cater not only for the new intake of univer-
sity graduates into the services, but for piomising field officers at the
lower level who are considered suitable material for training for promo-
tion.

Each course lasts for six which have become an accepted
months, and studies are centred part of public administration — train-
around the main subjects of ing at the advanced level.

politics and government, with an
emphasis throughout on the _practi-
cal skills and techniques which the

four; five courses have already passed
through the Institute, and a sixth is
in residence. On the successful
completion of their course, officers

are posted either io the ceniral
government as assistant secretaries Or
to the fizld as district officers. The
object of the course is not, therefore,
to prepare a man for a specific as-
signment as a secretariat official or
regional administrator, but rather to
equip him wita the basic skills and
background knowledge which he
will need in- either capacity.

The governmental
machinery of Kenya
has been built up with the genera-
list administrator as its foundation.
There ic nu reason to believe that,
aithough the political framework is
changing, the essential character of
the administrative task will alter.

The Department of Public Ad-
ministration also conducts courses at
a less advanced level for the district
cadre of the administrative service.
These officers are the principal exe-
cutants of government policy at the
level of day-to-day field administra~
tion, and they come to the Instituce
for a three months’ course, designed,
not as a venue of promotion, but to
enable them to discharge their duties
with greater efficiency and expertise.

They study all aspects of basic
administration from stores’ control
to the performance of limited —ma-
gisterial functions. In addition.
they are given an insight into the
wider spheres of policymaking,
which they must)be able to inter~
pret af not initiate directly. _

KE ie se

‘As an extension of the Insticute’s
current programme, plans already in
preparation for a series of short sen-
icr courses, designed to provide train.
ing in decision-.naking and policy-
formulation for local officers who
are destined tc fill the most senior
posts in the future Civil Service.

These courses will be conducted
under the direction of the Depart-
ment of Public Administration, but
will be of a participant snd problem-
solving nature, with lectures provide
by persons of eminence in every
walk of life. The courses will also
be a new departure for the Institute
in that they wili be attended not
only by civil servants, but by senior
or potentially senior executive indus-
try Wich the approach of in depend-
ence, i: is essential that leaders in
every field mect together and tackle
their problens ina spirit of mutual
endeavour and understanding. A
series of short courses of this nature
should do a great deal to fulfil the
necd for traming and co-operation
at the highest level of administrative
activity. /

The Department of Executive
Training at the Institute is designed
to train executive
officers for che central government
and the regions. The officers train-
ed are drawn entirely from the cleri-
cal grades of the government service,
and are selected for their excutive
potential and for the branch
of executive work for
which they are best fitted through
the medium of a one week’s assess-
ment course at the Institute.

If they are successful in passing the
assessment standards, they return to

blishments. 148 officers have so far
compleied these courses or are nearing
the end of their studies; they will
provide the backbone of the middle
executive service of the government
for many years to come

Ata higher Jevel of executive
traing, two advanced executive
courses of six months’ duration are
already in progress and will be succee-
ded by further series. These courses
which are extremely intensive in
character, aim at producing men to
assume the most senior posts in the
executive giades. Students are
chosen for training through a system
of interviews under the guidance of
the Civil Service Commussion,

They can look forward to even-
tual appointment to positions at the
top level of the executive cadre, as
chief accountants and chief
establishment officers, Their traning
is vital, not only because the majority
of such posts are currently held by
expatriates, but also because on their
effective functioning so much of the
government machine depends.

In the department of Local
Government — as the name implies
-— the student body is drawn from
the staffs of local anthoritits through-
out Kenya, with a number from
Tanganyika as well.

Courses are at two. levels, the
higher of which prepares, students
for. the intermediate examinations of

_—vevthar heclensine aaa

Treasurers and) Accountants or the
Corporation of Secretaries.’

These students. will, after a year’s
course, be qualified to the intermedi-
ated standard of international recog-
nised professional bodies, and will
assume the more senior posts in the
local government service.

Ata less advanced level, courses
are conducted for local authority
accounts and secretaria) staff, and
these also prepare for examinations
set by the professional bodies men-
tioned above,

Local authorities pay {or their
students to attend courses in the
department, but have been assisted
by bursaries provided by the Agency
for International Development,

The Community Development
Training Centre operates under the
overall direc.ion of the Ministry of
Social Development as a part of the
Tastitute, It trains not only comm.
unity development officers and assis-
tants, but provides also a wide
range of short courses in the princi-
ples and practice of community
development for youth leaders and
the organisers of women's clubs.

After ten years of continuous as-
sociation first with Jeanes School and
latterly with the Kenya Institure of
Admunistration, the East African
School of Co-operation closed at
the end of 1962. Originally an in-
ter-territorial training institution for
the officers of co-operative depart-
ments and the managers of
co operative societies throughout
East Africa, its closure was the result
of the decision of the Uganda Gov-
ernment in 1959 and the Tangan-
yika Government in 1962 to
establish their own training facilities
in their own countries.

However the need for the Kenya
Government to continue with the
training of its own co-operative







personnel is as pressing as ever, pat-
ticularly with the development of
agricultural settiement schemes in
the scheduled areas of the Colony.
It is aoped, ‘therefore, that training
in co-operation will soon ‘be recom~
mend ona Kenya basis avd will
again form part of the general train-
ing function at Kabere,

What is the fiture? The aca-
demic side of the Institute curricu-
lum is about to be strengthened by
the addition to the regular teaching
staff of five university specialists pro-
vided by Syracuse University,
New York, which throughout the
Institute's shert life has been an.
active and valued ally.

The range of skills which these
specialists will cover includes not
only subjects such as comparative
government and economics in which
direct instruction is required, but
also the provision of audio-visual
aids and advice on the latest teach-
ing tuethods and techniques. They
will work under the direction of the
Principal as an integral part of the
institue staff and will undoubtedly
have a unique contribution to make
to the wider development of the
training programme.

The nature of the training provi-
ded at the Institute and the type of
course conducted, are kept under
constant review. As general educa-
tional standards improve, the stand-
ard of learning imparted must ris€
also.

There will be a place — and an
important place — for. research,
which the exigencies of the prog.)
ramme have not so fat allowed : ex-
cept on a limited scale.. A start has:

Tnstitute. with itssown \ instructional
material and text books: particularly
suited to East Afiican needs; the
publication ot an institute journal is
now under consideration and will be
an essential development for the In-
stitute to maintain its status and pres-
tige. The field of public adminis-
tration training is still in many ways
embryonic, and a receptiveness to
new ideas and stimuli will be in the
future a vital prerequisite of progress.
The essential function of the Kenya
Institute of Administration has never
been better expressed than by Sir
Patrick Renison, the then Governor
of Kenya, when he laid the founda-
tion stone of the main tuition block
on the sth January 1962. He con-
cluded his speech with these words:
“TI would wish that we have jointly
created today an Institution that witl,
over the years, gain a reputation for
producing Civil Servants of the big-
gest integrity and ability and that will
be honoured throughout Africa for
the spirit of Service that it has
instilled’.

; “WORRELL HAS MADE |
- HISTORY” y



A TRIBUTE TO A TRUE LEADER

‘Tere in this do w n-to-
earth north of England in-
dustrial city there is a feeling
of great loss. Not over the
English defeat in the fourth
Test match, but because
Frank Worrell, a West In-
dian, won’t pass this way
again.

Frank Woriell and his
team, first in Australia a
couple of years ago, and now
in England, have added a
new dimension to cricket
history.

Itis tragic, andI am
being practical, not senti-
mental, that this West In-
dies tourof England 1s
Frank W orrell’s last as
Captain.

From being the best ever
of West Indies’ skippers,
the one who has taught
West Indians how to stand
firm in) adversity, the one
who had to. wait too. long
for his inheritance, he wilt

lectured a f:w only of his
men on taking courses to
bring their general know-
ledge of the appurtenances
of hfe up to the siandard
expected from so prominent
a personage as a Test crick-
eter; on cricket he lectured
nobody.

“If something was
wrong, he told them what
was right and left ic to them.

“These words will always
ming 1a my ears. They are
something new, not only in
West Inetes cricket but in
West Indies life West
Indians can often tell you
what is wrong and sume
even what will make it right,
but they don’t leave it to

you. Worrell did. It is
the ultimate expression of a
most finished personality,

who knows his business,

theory and practice, and

knows modern men.”
Every. member of, the

soon-return-té-being Werden W. est

of the University College of:
the West Indies in Jamaica.

‘The present West Indies
team is probably the strong
est cricket combination 1n
the world. It will remain
good, when Worrell 1s using
his own time and his own
petrol to run students toa
sports field that, in his young
days, he’d have walked to
without a thouj,h. But
will ic cver be so good
again?

No appointment in the
West Indies was ever so
universally and warmly ap-
proved as thatof Frank
Worrell as Captain.

West Indians crowding
to Tests bring with them the
whole past history and
future hopes of the islands.
In Worrell, the last of the
three W’s, they have been
prepared to parade their
worldly goods.

These were duly recog-
nised when at the end of
Worrell’s Australian tour, a

uarter of a million people
filled the Melbourne streets
in a spontaneous gesture to
bid fareweil to the West
Indians. One people
speaking to another.

C.L.R. James, in his
superb “Beyond a Bound-
ary, writes: ‘As, everybody
knows, the tour began bad-
ly. But, said Worrell, he

wotld do anything for Frank
Worrell.) I am wondering
what the West Indies will
do without him.

With no disrespect to
younger members of his
side — they are the first to
see it— itis going to be very
difficult to find a successor.
He has set such a high stan-
dard.

He has expatided the con-
ception of West Indian
personality. With all the
West Ind‘an ease, humour
and easy adaptation to envi-
ronment, Frank Worrell has
won new friends for the
West Indies wherever he
has travelled.

As Leeds is missing him
today, soall England is
going to miss Frank Worrell
the man, just as much as
Frank Worrell, master crick-
eter, tomorrow.

The Commis.iin added that
success for the joint industrial coun-
cil could only be assured if the par-
ties entered it freely and with a will
to succeed, ‘It should have for its
purpose not only the negotiation of
wages and conditions, but also, tt
should provide the medium through
which discussions can take place for
promoting the welfare of the workers,

or improving employer-worker
relations and for the general efficiency
of the industry, It should not mect
only in the shadow of a trade
dispute.”

Trade Union
“Third Force’

New Development In

GEORGE TOWN, BRITISH
GUIANNA, CP:— A Tirade Union
third force has now begun to take
shape 1n British Guiana, where the
Trades Union Council recently
fought an eighty-day’ general strike
battle, successfully defending the free
Labour Movement against a Gov-
etnment bid for control through
legislative means. It 1s sponsored
by Nicholas Pollard, joint-Sectetary
(for the British Caribbean) of’ the
Latin — American Ccnfederation
of Christian Trade Union. A
new Guiana conftdrition of
Christian and believizg trade unions
and allied organizations has been

formed and a temporary executive
council elected.

Two other forces in being are
the Trade Union Council with its
25 affitiates on one hand, and the
Guiana Agucukural workers Union
sponsored by the ruling Jaganist
party on the other.

‘Capitalist Slaves”

In a radio broadcast Pollard
attacked American unions as “slaves
te the capitalist system.’ Calling
on workers and peasant farmers’
organizations to jon the new move-
ment Pollard declared the Christian
trade union system is the social and
economic system that ca-1 stop peo
ple from goit.g socialist oc commu-
nist. As for old capitel sm everyone
is fed up with it and fed up with
the kind of unions that support it.”

Editorial note: This developinent
and Mr. Pollard’s statement will be of
interest to our readers who have studied

VICTORY OF THE COMMON MAN

Te signing of a nuclear test ban agree-

ment between world powers,
divorced though it may be from s mall
every day currents of reality (since few
humble citizens could have imagined
themselves present at the ceremonial), 1s
not so much a victory for either of the
Mr. Ks, Mr. M., or any other glorified
initial representing power. It is a victory
for the common man, and we acknow-
ledge it as such while we pay tribute to
those. who stepped across the chasm and
did the obvious thing.

For years now it has become increas-
ingly plain that the little man, the man
in the street, the ordinary family (whether
living in New York, London or Lenin-
grad) took exception to the potential
havoc and pollution embodied in nuclear
bomb, tests — wherever ‘they were to be
held.; At first these objections were mild
and muted: after all, the big-shots, the

statesmen, the -peon!ena above said that_

these tests were necessary for national
security. But as time went on the rum-
blings of anxiety and the grumblings of
discontent became louder, and scientists
had something to say, too. Finally
Churchmen spoke out. A few “crazy
idiots” staged demonstrations. It was at
last perceived by the very highest authori-
ties that human beings took strong except-
ion to nuclear bomb tests. And so a
pact has been signed; details of the nego-
tiations ap pear inthis newspaper on
page one,

Of course the triumph is a limited one
so far. It does not mean that nuclear
bombs or similar other deadly means of
mass extermination have been abolished:
far from it. This is only the first step
towards a general extension of interna-
tional decency: yet everyone knows the
importance of overcoming the obstruct-
ions of pride and past history which pre-
vent the peoples of the earth from reach-
ing an understanding. In this instance,
certain praise must goto President Ken-

nedy, who has grasped the concept “A
clash of doctrines is not a disaster —- it is
an opportunity,” and followed wise
counsel.

Yet though it is but a first step (and
even the ban does not include under-
ground tests) and not a sweeping victory
for common sense and the continuaticn
of life on this globe — since the vast
Chinese Republic has not assented, and
France has drawn aside — it isa very
important signing and a still more im-
portant sign. Itisa sign that some of
the world’s leaders at least have realised
the dangers to which these rival tests were
subjecting their unwilling and sometimes
unwitting populations. ‘‘Ouce you have
unbridled fozces which you will be
powerless to co pe with, then however
matters go, you will be ruined at the end
of the tragedy.” Those words were
written by Engels in 1887; but they ‘are

We realise all too -well that armaments
mean employment; nuclear bomb pro-
duction and launching sites mean vast
national spending, and that sometimes
(though not invariably) threats act as a
deterrent. These are among the argu-
ments which will be used to pcstpone
the abolition of the globe’s worst menace,
the nuclear bomb itself. But listen to
this:

‘All must realise that there is no hope
of putting an end to the building up of
armaments, nor of reducing the present
stocks, nor, still less, of abolishing them
altogether, unless the process is complete
and thorough and _ unless it proceeds from
inner conviction: unless, that is, everyone
sincerely co-operates to banish the fear and
anxious expectation of war with which
men are oppressed.”

Who said those words? Not the litle
man in the street who had been thinking
along those lines, nor the humble editor
of the HERALD, but the late Pope John
XXIII on rith April, 1963.

WELCOME, SWEET SONGSTERS

It is a wonderful treat for us to be privil-
eged to hear a first-class Barbados Choir,
and the HERALD joins in welcoming those
inspired choristers to the island of Dom-
inica. They have come to bring tidings
of comfort and joy to ill and distressed
persons in our community, as well as
much pleasure to the average music-lover.
They are not confining their recitals to
Roseau alone, but will strike out into
country districts and bring with them the

blended notes of unselfish friendship.
Just as the church choirs of English medie-
val days sometimes took along with them
mummers and mimers to entertain the
populace, we learn that these West Indian
singers have amongst them soloists and
tap dancers; their Minister of Social Ser-
vices has also favoured Dominica with
his presence. We thank them all for com-
ing and wish them a happy tour.

IN THE CABINET

By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter IX

It was Tuesday, Council of State day. Normally
on Tuesday, ivstead of going to the Minister, 1 would
telephone to find out if there were any urgent matters for me to
deal with, and if not Nicholas would call for me in his
yellow taxi and drive me straight to the Governor Gen-
eral’s House. On this day I summoned Nicholas early
and we drove to the Ministerial buildings, then known as
Federal fouse. He deposited me and my portfolio, which
already felt like a sack of stones, in the narrow alleyway
which served as a parking-place. Two Members of the
Federal Parliament were standing in the sunshine besice a
car, with their backs turned; as I moved into the shadow
of a doorway I heard the Prime Minister’s name spoken
low, and something in the tone of the speaker, some
note of derision, held methere. I heard the MP say:

“Yes, he recovered. It would have been sordid to die
of a bad foot.”

The other M.P. said: ‘Next time it might be a pro-
per thrombosis.”

“© come, come,” said the first Member. ‘““You mustn’t
wish sudden death even to a Colonial Office stooge.”

The other parried, “All T want is to see this tomfool
weakling Government crack up. As it will, soon. I
don’t care how.”

“With their majority, one vote of no confidence’in
the House,” said the original speaker.

“Or the defection of one or two
still, of a Minister — ”

They came around the corner. and there was something in the ten-
seness of my beating which alarmed them. They fell silent, then mum-
bled goodmorning. I went up the stairs, dragging my leather case, _ while

wit

wild indignation, but I attempted to be detached and indifferent,
This was impossible. I knew it was more important to be, a human
being than to be a Minister of State.

The Governor General’s House was a noble grey stone mansion set
amidst spacious lawns; the council chamber there, in which we held our
earliest meetings, was like a large dining-room, air-conditioned to the point ,
of frigidity. The Governor-General suffered intensely from our tropical ©
heat. His bearing was handsome and formal and he disliked the casual
unpunctuality of many West Indians, 8

On this day the Prime Minister was alarmingly late. After a wait
of nearly three-quarters of an hour he came in, walking very slowly,
unabashed looking. He apologised in his courteous deprecatory voice}

“I’m sorry, Your Exceilency. I had to go to a funeral.”*

“I’m sorry, too,” said His Excellency, his features hardly _relenting.

“You sec, Sir, I suddenly heard . . . There was an old white man
—musi have been over eighty if a day. He died yesterday. He used to
be my schoolmaster. Died very poor. I heard of the burial late, and
felt I ought to go. So I followed the coffin.”

I took off my dark glasses and turned a melancholy gaze full on the
Prime Minister, He was smiling, just as Sese smiled when she was
deeply sad. I heard him say in an aside, “one of the best teachers I ever
knew.” His voice was full of authentic affection. I hastily put my
glasses on aga‘n .. . The President was saying: ‘‘Arising out of the
minutes, I understand there is a correction, . .”

There it was, the implication of ‘universal love’ which overshot
limitations of race, social status, and personal discomfort The Prime
Minister of our uneasy little near nation, a sick man, had risen early to
attend the funeral of a poor old white man, unknown to me, who had
been a teacher; trudging after the bier to incur the displeasure of his col-
league the Governor General, another white man. I realised then more
clearly than ever what the P, M. stood for, and heard with new conscious-
ness the voice of the enemy in the alleyway:

“Better still -— the defection of a Minister,””

In the break for coffee, Teacher spoke to me. ‘‘Why so serious?

Have you been to the funeral tooz”

Most Modern Method

Above all, do not con-
fuse weight training with
weight-lifting, a competitive
spott in which the object is
to lift the maximum weight,
once, in a certain way.

Weight traiaing, some-
times referred to as resistance
exercises, is the most up-to-
date method of keeping the
human body in peak condi-
tion. It isa sure way to
quick results in improving
your physique or figure —
and your health.

There are now thousands
of weight training clubs and
groups all over the world,
and many people of all ages
carry out resistance exercises
at home.

ducing these exercises in
their physical training pro-

A piece of pipe about an
inch-and-a-half in diameter
would do.

Then you need six metal
discs with holes to nt on to

and-a-half o ten pounds
each.

They must be in pairs of
the same weight and you
must have some sort of
screw ot collar to fasten
them on the barso they
cannot slip off and injure
you. qn
different weights give you
room for progressiong

The only difference is
that girls should choose
much lighter weights than
boys and do fewer repeti-

to see how much you can
lift, but to do the exercises
correctly.

articles for “loosening 1p”

training sessions. Try ten
of each of these to start with.

1. This is called the Press.

Bend your knees, take hold
of the bar and, using your legs
and back, pull it co your chest

up» Then press the bar ab-
ove your head, keeping it as
near to your face as you can.
Do not look at the bar or
hollow your back, and keep
your fect fiirmly on the floor.
Breathe in as you press up,
out as lower to starting posi-
tion, This is a shoulder and
back exercise.

Upright rowing. With a
natrow grip, hands over the

with the under grip with your

hands about hip width apart.
Bring the bar outwards and
upwards in a curve from your

This is an upper arm and
wrist exercise.

about 18 inches high. Hold
the bar above your kead with

a fairly wide grip. Lower the

JOHN HEARNE ON W. I.
SOCIETY

By HERALD Literary Club Reporter
Age Of Risk’

Only twentytwo persons
of the 13,000 residents of
Roseau found time to listen
to a lecture by famous West
Indian. Author John Hearne
on “The Age of Risk” or
“some Reflections on the

Coming Patterns in W. I.
Culture,” at the D.G. S.
premises on Wednesday
evening.

“None of us in the West
Indies is quite sure of
what we are going to be at
the end ofa second federa-
tion...up to a few years
ago our history has had a
very crucl face — we labour-
ed to produce wealth for
others to spend — but with
the social and political up-
heavals of the 1930's it be-

must be from the head, from
the imagination,” stated the
author of “voices under the
Window’’.
Federation And Fear

In an apt digression the lecturec ,
stated that the breaking up of the
W.L, Federation was superficial and
momentary and that the federation
failed because of fear of taking decis-
ions, fear of errors of judgement,
fear of disturbing old patterns and
fear that preliminany pains would
make us look ridiculous in the eyes
of the world.

Nervous Society

“The Wes: Indies today is the
most nrvous society that I know.
Everyone scems to fecl that we are
treading on the edge of an important
and crucial discovery of ourselves.
We are definitely in a state of severe
crisis in our development and to help
ourselves we must engage ina ceaseless
dialogue with each other. There
must be a ceaseless enquiry”. he

After stating that the WI, today |
have no common identity (without
which the future is grim) and'that.a -
nation or man who does not know. °
who he is, is not worthy of indepen-
dence, the ‘speaker: wenton to say,

tions and traditions, any literate,

have a profound effect on society.

Elusive Exposition

Due to paucity of attendance’
(C.H.S. Speech Night, an annual
event, took place onthe same
pight), John Hearne’s first talk here
in many decades was considerably
shortened: however vote-of-thanks
mover Ce-operatives officer J. Barzey
found it an ‘‘Elusive exposition’’,

On Thursday evening at the same
venue Mr. John Hearne lectured
on ‘The W.I. image and W.I.

meeting of the G.A.T.T, and report to their respective
Governments the proceedings .t those meetings and note

tives of the Conference of Heads of Governments.

The Governments should endeavour to agree on their

' 2. CANADA/WEST INDIES AGREEMENT:
(...That the details of the Agreement and other economic
relationships with Canada should be examined with a view
to discussion at the next meeting of Heads of Governments.

Trinidad and Tobago in an exhibition of West Indian
products in the Netherlands Antilles.

4. VENEZUELAN 30% SURTAX.

It was unanimously agreed that the Antillean surtax
was discriminatory aud that the participating Governments
should make a joint protest against this and other discri-
minatory practices against export products from Caribbean

countries and request their removal.
5. SEA COMMUNICATIONS:

It was agreed that a Working Party of experts be appointed ta study
all aspects of sea cornmunicatiens withir. tle Region and outside the Re-
gion with special reference to: ‘

(a) an examination of the suitability of the ships now operated by

transport within the Region including British Guiana;

(b) determining whether the needs of the area in the field of sea com-
munication within the area and with the rest of the wozld are best served by
the presenc arrangements and, if not, to make recommendations;

(c) examining means of expanding employment of West Indians on
ships trading in the area whether or not it is decided that the existing ser~
vices should be preserved.

6. COMMUNICATION BY AIR WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE REGION;

Sports Hero

Sir,

Tt was regretable that no men-
tion was made in the Wednesday
issue of the Dominica Chronicle
of the gallant deed done by Mr,
Patrick. Pierre during the sports
event taking plac: on Sunday 4th
August at the Windsor Park, when
he'Izape and intercepted a bad throw
of the discus which was travelling | ¢

—at_gicat speed into the crowd of
Spectators occupying the stand.

At the , time of interception the
discus was flying straight at the head
of a little girl of about 6 years.

Ithink it a truly great deed and
offer Mr Pierre my sincerest con-
gratulations.

Sir, — As the caterpillar is not on
the road and I ama staunch read-
er of your paper I a'n going to say
something about — ‘So They Say’.

The first ume I saw you was
when I came from England and
you were giving a reply to a
controversial question eoncerning
E,B. Henry and Mr. Joshua at the
Market Place—one of your greatest
speecnes ever before your disinissal;
in my opinion Dominica has lost a
great public figure.

I wish I could see. our friend who

Dominica can prosper: Land-tax,
oh friend! I am quite hippy to say
that I have seen the Windward Is-
lands and Jand-tax is not the answer
to help us here. Sir, let us look at
one of our disadvantages here —
no agricultural bank, no roads, no
public transport, These are a few
things I mention butte pay a land-tax
is a hard one.

Put a road programme in, public
transport, and an agricultural bank
in the country, to mention a few
things that will help Dominica: any
expert will say the same thing, Ie is
not easy to get by in tilling the soil
here with all these disadvantages.
One thing I am quite sure of is —
there are quite a few people who

‘SO THEY SAY”--
BY BOB & RAY

Early in July each year we have been in the habit of slowly building
up a supply of “hurricane stores” in our home. We start out by stocking
afew pounds of Hour, sugar, butter and some matches. These we put
into speccial plastic coutamners so they won’t get wet — when the roof
blows off! And each week during July we add a few items of food to
our meagre larder: some corned beef, sardines. scup, instant coffee. We
cannot afford to get it all at once but its 2 steady increase so by the mid-
dle of August we have what we consider to be enough things to
tide us over a period of a week or ten days.

But last Sunday morning the news on the radio about Tropical
Storm Arlene b:gan to concera us. We felt this storm might possibly
strike Dominica and for ‘he first time in years we tned some other
hurricane precautions. Even though the sun was shining and it seemed
like a beautiful day, we were upset by ihe clearness of the atmosphere.
One could see great detail miles away and this we knew is a_ portent of a
big storm. The clouds were very high in the blue sky bue they seemed to
just hang there not mov.ng, and they were long and stringy, not flat and
fleecy like regular clouds, The next bulletinon the radio an hour later
I spoke of the storm 200 miles directly east of Marigot — but headed nor-
th-northwest — or did the man say west-northwest? Suppose he was
wrong, and it was really headed west!

That did it! We decided tc close the storm shutters - - not that
the weather outside warranted it, but we langhingly explained to the others
that we might as well have “practice” or what the army calls a dry run.
So we began to close the heavy shutters that have just been hanging on

jtheir hinges for these many years. Imagine our surprise to find many of
them would not close properly, the hinges were so badly rusted. So we oil-
ed the hinges and made bars for those that were missing. When finally,
we found it had take us around three hours to shut the house up properly
— and this in bread daylight! We are alarmed at this and mentioned
what it might be if we had to do this at night, 1n a howling gale of wind
and rain. But it was good practice. The storm did not strike Domin-
ica but if we have to close up for another storm, we at least are familiat
with the shutter problem and could, if need be, do it inthe dark rather
quickly we think,

Buc while we were about this dry run getting ready for a hurricane to
strike, we felt some extra water in the house would be a good thing It
took us sume time to locate a suitable drum for this supply of water; to
clean it out.and make a stand for it where the wind . would not knock i
over. Then, with a length of rubber hose, we filled the drum with drink-
ex-from che-tap,—The water from the pipe, we hac, siould either
not be owing or would not be safe to drink if a real storm struck since
high winds and heavy rains quickly knock out most man-made things
like water pipes and reservoirs. A gallon or two of kerosene is part of
our “hurricane stores”? as the electric will surely be off for many days after
a big storm.

We always feel a trifle silly sturing up food this way but if imagi-
nation is worth anything at all (added to the things we have seen and read
about the hurricane’s power), ws would feel a lot less silly if other people
also stocked up some food too! We have a great respect for the hurricane.
It is the most powerful thing in nature, Next to the power of the sun it-
self, a hurricane puts ovt more energy than any oth ¢ force on eatth —more
than the largest earthquake — and hundreds of umes more powerful even
than man’s best H-bombs! If it were possible to harness the power of just
one ord:nary-sized hurricane, it would supply enough energy to run ail the
motors of the world, light every ciry, drive every ship for a hundred years.

Having studied hurricanes, talked with the m:n who Aly the airplanes
looking for hurricanes and plotting their size, direction, intensity, we feel
in great awe of these storms and can visualise Roseau, for example, delug-
ed by a flood of rain water from the mountains and lashed by a food of

water from the sea so that there is not a p rticle of dry food to be found in
town. This alarms us and that is why we put food aside, safely cached,
But upon questioning others we learn we are almost alone in this habit.

Of course nowadays the world is conscious of the sufferings of people
hard-hit by tropical storms, The Red Cross and other reliet organisations
usually rush in the day after the storm and set up kitchens and first aid
centres to c2re for the illestarred populace. But could hug: suppy planes
land at Melville Hallz Would we have to wait for help to arrive by boat?
This might take a week, and in a week a person can become very very,
hungry! And somehow, we would rather eat our own food, and prepare
it Ourselves) than to wait for some people to bring us food from some



have land on the road and will not
rent or sell. One thing I know is if
we could get as many strangers as
pos ible they would bring in their
ideas, both bad and good. Any
government that can succeed in giv-
ing us these things I mention —
public transport and an agricultural
loan bank — will by that time hit
the nail on the head, By the way,
I heard a few of my friends talking
toa Bajan, and he said, “What
Dominica wants first is National
Pride and let every man, woman
and child play their part.’

relief warehnuse. In all the hurricane precaut‘on advice we have
seen, scldom is a safe supply of food mentioned. They tell you not to
cat food from a refrigerator from which the electric supply has been cut
off for several days since the food would be poisonous. How true. But
what shall we cat and how shall we cook what food we may be lucky
enough to find? A few chocolate bars wrapped up in a plastic sack,
some raisins, a few tins ot meat, a tin of biscuits would be nice to have in
the house.

Remember, hurricane season is supposed to be officially over each
year in November (but the last oae to strike Dominica did so Iate in
December!) so you can consume your hurricane stores wher the season is
finished, Just remember to stock up again next June — and next time
add some tins of Domfruit juice. Not only does it help to wash down
those dry biscuits but itsa Dominican product and will help local _ busi-
ness if you will buy locai products! So they say.

‘THIS DECISIVE HOUR

The following words hy the Rev.
Martin Luther King, famous U. S.
preacher and opposer of race in-
justice, are reprinted from “British
Weekly”’.

1 Love the church; I love her
sacred walls. How could I do
otherwise? I am = in the rather
unique position of beng the son,
the grandson and the great grandson
of preachers. Yes, 1 see the church
as the bedy of Christ. But, oh!
How we have blemished and scarred
the body through social neglect and
fear of being np ncorils reuists

There was a time when the church
was very powerful, It was during
that period when the early Christians
rejoiced shen they were deemed
worthy to suffer for what they
believed. In those days the church
was not merely a thermometer that
recorded the ideas and principles of
popular opinion; it was the thermo-
stat that transformed the mores of
soeiety, Wherever the early Chris-
tians entered a town the power
structure got disturbed and imme
diately sought to convict them for
being ‘-disturbers ot the peace” and
“outside agitators.” But they went
on with the conviction that they

Liston — Clay Bout Called Off

Sonny Listo*, World Heavywe ghe
Champion, 1a: called off his atle
fight with Cassius Clay because of
tax problems, The fight was due to
take place in New York on Septem-
ber 30th. Liston’s decision means
that Clay will bave to wait until
next year for his chance at the ute.
At his Louiswille appartment on
Tuesday, Clay’s comment was,
"T’ve got tax problems too. Liston
is scared to death of me’’.

Iam in complete agreemet with
Clay. Liston's excuse isa flimsy
one. Both fighters have tax problems,
so the easiest solution would be to
stage the fight either in Canada or
England, out of reach of the U. S.
Income Tax collectors.

Why is Liston aftaid? Til tell
you. He’s gota terrific punch in
both hands, but he likes his oppon-
ents to “‘bring the fight’? to him.
Most of his opponents so far have
done just that and paid the penalty.
Clay, on the other hand is a great
counter puncher and_ will wait for
Liston to come and get him. Liston
would‘have to’ change his style and
between now and September is too
short a time to do so effectively.

Two months ago, Liston told his
manager that he wanted Clay for a
Christmas present. Now he has his

present within his grasp, he has

refused it. Rather like Julius Ceasar;
don’t. you’ think so? Meanwhile,
Clay. will not be idle, he has
immediately stated negotiations to
meet Brian sondon inthe near
future.

Athletics

An all-island Athletics meet
sponsored by the Jaycees during the
holiday weekend, ended in victories
for D.G.S. (men) and Invincibles
(ladies). D.G.S finished with 57
points and Invincibles with 374
points. Victor Ludorum was Benoit
Laville of D.G.S., who threw the
Javelin 187‘s** (far below his best),
threw the cricket ball x07 yds. and
the Discus 1218”. Laville also
won the shot put with a throw of
38°10 and Pole Vaulted 10’6”,
Other outsanding athletes were P.
Blaize of Combermere who covered
3 miles in 18 minutes 17 seconds
and won the 8 mile Cross Country
race, and R. Harris who won the
440 yds and 880 flat races, Among
the ladies, F. Harris of Y.C. W. run
oo yds in 13 seconds, high Jumped
4’1“ and long jumped 13’5””.

Netball

Teams from tne Caribbean area
have so far performed fairly well in
the Netball Tournament at East-
bourne in England. So far, Trini-
dad have won four matches out of
five, Jamaica three out of five and
the West Indies two out of five.
New Zealand and Australia have so
far dominated the Tournament.

New Zealand, hitherto undefeat-
ed, were beaten on Thursday 37
goals to 36 by Australia. Australia
now lead with 10 points from five
games, while England, New Zea-
land and Trinidad each have 8
points from five games.

The New Zealand team made
netball history last Saturday when
they beat Northern Ireland by 112
goals to 4.
