BRITAIN, U.S. AND SOVIETS SIGN TREATY
Ban Dangerous Tests
On August 5th 1963, three big World Powers took the
first step towards safety when Great Britain, the United
States of America and the Union of Socialist S o v i e t
Republics signed a partial nuclear test ban treaty with full
formality in the Kremlin Grand Palace in M o s c o w.
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 U n it e d Nations, U Thant, who flew to Moscow
especially for the occasion.

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 Hon. 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 8 p.m.
Director Arrived Early
There are 59 members of the group, and their founder-
director, Mr. Harold Rock, came here a week before-
hand to make necessary 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 signing of a nuclear test ban agree-
ment between world p o w e r s,
divorced though it may be from s m a l
every day currents of reality (since few
humble citizens could h a v e imagined
themselves present at the ceremonial), is
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-
g r a d) 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
staesamen, the.jeas!* Above said tJiatL
t h e s e 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 a p p e a r in this newspaper on
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 go to President Ken-
nedy, who has grasped the concept

Yet though it is but a first step (a
even the ban does not include und
ground tests) and not a sweeping vict
for common sense and the continual
of life on this globe since the v a
Chinese Republic has not assented, x
France has drawn aside it is a v
important signing and a still more i
portant sign. It is a sign that some
the world's leaders at least have reali

We realise all too well that armame
mean employment; nuclear bomb p
duction and launching sites mean v
national spending, and that sometir
(though not invariably) threats act a
deterrent. These are among the arg
ments which will be used to pcstpo
the abolition of the globe's worst mena

"All must realise that there is no h(
of putting an end to the building up

men are oppressed."

VICTORY OF THE COMMON MAN
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 wil 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, instead of going to the Minister, I would
telephone" to find out ifthere 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 House. He deposited me and my portfolio, which
already felt like a sack of stones, in the narrow alleyway
"A which served as a parking-place. Two Members of the
it is Federal Parliament were standing in the sunshine beside a
vise car, with their backs turned; as I moved into the shadow
of a doorway I heard the Prime Minister's name spoken
lnd low, and something in the tone of the speaker, some
ler- note of derision, held me there. I heard the MP say:
ory "Yes, he recovered. It would have been sordid to die
icn of a bad foot."
s t The other M.P. said: "Next time it might be a pro-
and per thrombosis."
very "O come, come," said the first Member. "You mustn't
im- wish sudden death even to a Colonial Office stooge."
of The other parried, "All I want is to see this tomfool
sed weakling Government crack up. As it will, soon. I
rere don't care how."
nes "With their majority, one vote of no confidence'in
ave the House," said the original speaker.
be "Or the defection of one or two Feds or better
ver still, of a Minister "
nd They came around the corner, and there was something in the ten-
r e seness of my beating which alarmed them. They fell silent, then mum-
are bled goodmornig. I went up the stairs, dragging my leather case, while
they took the lief to the Members' room, What I heard.had filled me

This was impossible. I knew it was more important to be a human
ro- being than to be a Minister of State.
vast The Governor General's House was a noble grey stone mansion set
nes amidst spacious lawns; the council chamber there, in which we held our
Is a earliest meetings, was like a large dining-room, air-conditioned to the point,
u- offrigidity. The Governor-General suffered intensely from our tropical
Seat. His bearing was handsome and formal and he disliked the casual
one unpunctuality of many West Indians,
ice, On this day the Prime Minister was alarmingly late. After a wait
to 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."
ope I'm sorry, too," said His Excellency, his features hardly relenting.
of "You see, Sir, I suddenly heard . There was an old white man
ent -must have been over eighty if a day. He died yesterday. He used to
em be my schoolmaster. Died very poor. I heard of the burial late, and
[ete felt I ought to go. So I followed the coffin."
om 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
one deeply sad. I heard him say in an aside, "one of the best teachers I ever
ind knew." His voice was full of authentic affection. I hastily put my
ich glasses on again . The President was saying: "Arising out of the
minutes, I understand there is a correction ..
ttle There it was, the implication of 'universal love' which overshot
limitations of race, social status, and personal discomfort The Prime
ing Minister of our easy little near nation, a sick man, had risen early to
itor attend the funeral of a poor old white man, unknown to me, who had
ihn been a teacher; trudging after the bier to incur the displeasure of his col-
league the Governor General, another white man. I realized 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 tool"
WELCOME, SWEET SONGSTERS
What do the words "weight training" suggest to you? Do you at once think
some picture you may have seen of an old-time circus strong-man in a leopard sk i

sport in which the object is
to lift the maximum weight,

JOHN HEARNE ON W. I.
By HERALD Literary Club Reporter
Age Of Risk'
Only twentytwo persons
of the 13,ooo 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
"None of us in the West
Indies is q uite sure of
what we are going to be at
the end of a second federa-
tion ... up to a few years
ago our history has had a
very cruel 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-
came apparent that W. I.
society had realized that it

had not contributed anything
and wanted to contribute
something. Since we can-
not be a society of heroic
achievement a pohli'ial
power our contributioi
must be fiom the head, from
the imagination," stated the
author of "voices under the
Federation And Fear
In an apt digression the lecturer,
stated that the breaking up of the
W.I, 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 preliminary pains would
make us look ridiculous in the eyes
of the world.
"The West Indies today is the
most nervous society that I know.
Everyone seems to fed 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 in a ceaseless
dialogue with each other. There
must be a ceaseless enquiry". .
After stating that the W.I, today
have no common identity withoutt
which the future is grim) and that a
nation or man who does not kow'.
who he is, is not worthy of'indepn-
dence, the.speaker went,on t. say,
that the ,world will not tolerate a ti-
mid and immature society; -ertifE l -e
every literate West Indian must be-a
teacher or else he does not deserve.t
be called a West Indian, Since w*
are in the process of creating institi-
tions and traditions, any literate,
thinking and active individual can
have a profound effect on society.
Due to paucity of attendance
(C.H.S. Speech Night, an manual
event, took pl a ce on the same
night), John Hearne's first talk here
in many decades was considerably
shortened: however vote-of-thanks

"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
a lew pounds of flour, sugar, butter and some matches. These we put
into special plastic containers so they won't get wet when the roof
1blws off! And each week during July we add a few items of food to
our meagre larder: some corned beef, sardines, soup, instant coffee. We
cannot afford to get it all at once but its a steady increase so by the mid.
dle of August we have what we co ni s i d cr 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 began to concern. us. We felt this storm might possibly
strike Dominica and for -he first time in years we tried some other
hurricane precautions. Even though the sun was shining and it seemed
like a beautiful day, we were upset by the 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 but they seemed to
just hang there not moving, and they were long and stringy, not flat and
fleecy like regular clouds. The next bulletin on the radio an hour later
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 to close the storm shutters - not that
the weather outside warranted it, but we laughingly explained to the others
that we might as well have "practice" or what the army calls a dry run.
So xe began to close the heavy shutters that have just been hanging on
their hinges for these many years. Imagine our surprise to find many of
them would not close properly, tle 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 broad dayhght! We are alarmed at this and mentioned
what it might be if we had to do this at night, in a howling gale of wind

The following words by the Rev.

preacher and opposer of race in-
justice, are reprinted from "British
I Love the church; I love her

as the body of Christ. But, oh!
How we have blemished and scarred
the body through social neglect and
fear of being nonconformists
There was a time when the church
was very powerful, It was during
that period when the early Christians
rejoiced \:hen 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
society, Wherever the early Chris-
tians ertered a town the power
structure got disturbed and imme
diately sought to convict them for
being 'disturbers oi the peace" and
"outside agitators." But they went
on with the conviction that they
were "a colony of heaven", and
had to obey God rather than man.
They were small in number, but
big in commitment. They were too
God intoxicated to be astronomyi
cally intoxicated." They brought
an end to such ancient evils as
infanticide and gladiatorial contest.
Things are different now. The
contemporary church is no often a
weak, ineffectual voice with an un-
certain sound. It is so often the
arch supporter of the status quo.
Far from being disturbed by the
presence, of the church, the power
st-ucture ofthe average community
is consoled by the church's silent
and often vocal sanction of things
as they are.
But the judgement of God is
upon the church as never before.
if the church of to-day does not
recapture the sacrificial spirit of the
early church, it will lose its authentic
ring, forfeit the loyalty of millions,
and be dismissed as an irrelevant

BY EDDIE ROBINSON
Liston--Clay Bout Called Off PEOPLE IN THE NEWS
Sonny L.Uto ,, World Heavywe ght
Champion, l a. called off his title
fight with Cassius Clay because of
tax problems. The fight was due to
take place in New York on Septem-
ber 3oth. Liston's decision means
that Clay will have to wait until
next year for his chance at the title.
At his Louisville apartment on
Tuesday, Clay's comment was,
"I've got tax problems too. Liston
is scared to death of me".
I am in complete agreement with
Clay. Liston's excuse is a 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 afraid? I'll tell
you. He's got a 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 sot Meanwhile,
Clay will not be idle, he has
immediately started negotiations to
meet Briin--j ondon in the near
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 371
points. Victor Ludorum was Benoit
Laville of D.G.S., who threw the
Javelin 187'5-' (far below his best),
threw the cricket ball 0o7 yds. and
the Discus 121'8". Laville also
won the shot put with a throw of
38'Io" and Pole Vaulted io'6",
Other outstanding athletes were P.
Blaize of Combermere who covered
3 miles in Is 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
1oo yds in 13 seconds, high Jumped
4'I" and long jumped 13'5".
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 o1 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 zz2
goals to 4.

U.W. I. Students
Leaving the island by the Federal
Palm on Thursday were the fourteen
U. W. I. undergraduates who
arrived in Dominica two weeks ago
to build a wall on the Infirmary
premises. The students, headed by
Dominica's Franklin Watty are en
route to Jamaica. They we:e not
able to complete the wall, but they
indeed helped to save a few hundred
dollars, (cost of labour) since their
labour was free.
Miss E. Charles was responsible
for organising picnics and other
forms of entertainment for the students
and was generally in charge of their
welfare while in the island,
