Article III

Movement in Practice
Since we have been given bodies we should learn
how to use them to express ourselves creatively and ima/
ginatively. We should become competent, inventive,
versatile, adaptable and skillful in our movement. To
achieve these qualities we must develop a sense of'body
awareness' -i all the wide range of possible body movements
and positions. If a person can be developed in this way
he or she will possess a fundamental pool of physical skill
and adequacy which can be channeled in a variety of
directions. He would become a better footballer or gymnast
and she a better netballer or dancer.
In studying body movement and action one finds
three basic principles to consider. The first concerns the
body: children should know what their body is doing in
its movement: what the purpose of the movement is and if
the same purpose could be attained in some otner more
efficacious manner. They must develop a knowledge of the
relative functioning of the limbs, the trunk and the head.
If for instance a girl is doing a simple forward roll, she
should have some idea of how the limbs contribute to the
performance of the action and how thd trunk and the head
must be managed to facilitate the action. Should any part
of the action not be an essential contribute to its successful
performance, then the girl should be taught to recognize it
and know why it is not essential and therefore be encouraged
to omit it from future performances of the same activity.
The second important consideration is the actual
movement of the body: how it moves. If one observes a
child at play or a dance, it soon becomes quite evident that
all of their movement originates from a few basic categories.
They curl and stretch, twist and turn, swing and circle
(limbs especially), roll, jump and run. The trained observer
notices if ihe movement is symmetrical or asymmetrical and
Wrnai-tiapes ihe-bony-afsni-res in--its 'actions ,ind stilc" posi--
tions (balances). He notices also how a movement is
initiated and the control with which it is executed. Children
must be trained to be intelligent observers and here demon/
station in the P.E. lesson has its value. When they are
able to recognize the various facets of movement they will
become sensible critics and better performers themselves.
Time is a vital part of movement, is the speed with
which an action is carried out. Some movements, e.g. a
cartwheel, can be performed at various speeds or just one
part of a movement can be performed fast or slow. Pupils
should learn to decide wisely upon the time of their move/
ments, paying attention to such variables as personal ability
and the type of movement and the circumstance of its per/
formance (a movement performed in isolation may have a
different timing to the same movement performed in a
Weight in movement is best explained in the two words
light and heavy. Some movement is light and graceful
while in contrast other movement is heavy. The former is
usually associated with suppleness and a more acrobatic
ability whilst the latter is strong movement involving great
Flow is the quality which binds movement together.
In a sequence or dance, flow unites all the movements into
one long whole and this together with style is at the centre
of beautiful movement.
If children can apply themselves intellectually to this
work and understand movement, feel it and live it, then
it will greatly enhance their personalities. s ..
The last consideration is space. All movement is
performed in space and broadly speaking this space falls
into two divisions: personal space and general space.
Personal space is that which the body naturally occupies
or has immediate access to at any particular movement.
in a tuck position for instance we occupy less personal
space than we do in a stretched position. General space
on the other hand is that which all bodies in a, given area
have access to: eg. a field.
Children in thy P,, lesson can be trained through
movement:to make the best possible use of both these types
. * . . f ;" r'

of space. Use of personal space is especially important
in such activities as dance, gymnastics and diving whilst
proper use of general space i.e. the ability to find the largest
open spaces, is of great importance in nearly all ball games.
All this is but a steleton picture of Movement as it

twentyfive happy, successful men and women. It gave the
quotations from each person on his or her personal formula
for their happiness and success. Summing up at the end,
they confounded us with the fact that, so they say, not one
of these people h-e~ecr ever did have any of the "six basic
fears" ..
"Six Basic Fears'.: Yes, there seems ro be exactly six
of them. It is said;that yeu can either happy or
successful. if you. harbour any one of those six basic fears.
No, sir, you: -a called upon; to rid yourself f every last
one of these'fears because. if you do not, well, then, just. .
step trying .to be'!...It just wor' work! So they say., .
What are' these fcas; .
First and foremost: .Fear of Poverty! i It appears that
most of mankind has this fear in .one form or another. '
-T0ey--hesrea fto- dp-his ouL Jo tJLA al" Lbcausethey-
are afraid that if they ap or do not, they will be broke!
Hard to believe, at first, but think it over. How many
things do we do against our will and better judgement all
because we think it will hit us in the pocketbook and we'll
lose our jobs nd be. hungry! ,
Second basic fear: Fear Of Criticism! O0 this is
a sneaky one all right. :We go around doing this or that
as we fear someone will criticize us if we don't . and i
is surprising, if you get honest with yourself, how many ( '
th ngs we all do.for this one reason: fear of criticism. Most. The
of us avoid at all costs the hard-to/iake" r1 n iuiing feeling 'o t,
that treeps over you when so neone says: "You shouldn, fort
have done that!"
Third fear: Fear of the Loss of the Love of Someone! i ether
We seldom even think of this as a possible fear but its rated energy tc
as-the third most popular and widespread fear among all d:-bclous
humanity. But, remembe-, you cannot be happy nor producing
successful (so they say) if you have this particular fear. If raltors
everything you do, say, eat, wear, etc. is done because you chbc,:lateI
fear the Loss of tle Love of Somebody if you do other, wi]t your
wise, .. well, that's too bad!
Fourth: Fear of Ill/Health! Millions of people are
guided in their everyday life by this fear. They are some,
times unaware that the fear has them in its grip but nonethe-
less, its very real. And it goes- hand/inhand with the '
fifth basic fear: .,
Fear Of Old-Age! We know people who are in their forties who
are afraid they are "growing old"! Silly. Yes, of course, but its very true :
of a lot of people. They are getting older every year and this is ftighl -
tening to them. Losing their youth! Losing their charm, their good looks!
Fear, fear, fear.. musn't-have it.
The'Sixth Basic Fear is Fear ot Death! .And this doesn't happen to
people about to die, either.'It is a fear that keeps us alive, really. We fear
drowning so we doi't. go swimming in the deep dangerous water. We
fear we might fall to our deaths so we don't get too close to the edge of
a cliffor house-top. This is a normal, protective fear. But the unwholesome
fear is the one- wherewe just fear we -might diel We ate all going to dia

something that struck me forcibly
while we were in the West Indies.
Since our return, it has been ever
striking. In the early days of the

every educated man played a part
in public life (there were no educa-
ted women in those days). I found
that in the West Indies this was also
true of educated women. Over here,
where education is more readily
available, our women tend to stay
home, and often to waste their talents
and resources. Your own part in
the government of Dominica, and
your prominence throughout the
West Indies make you uniquely
important to an article such as I
I should like to ask you-- and
a few others I was fortunate enough
to meet (incidentally, I should be
very grateful for any suggestions from
you) -a few questions, and to
base my article on the answers.
i) Your family background--
were your parents or others in your
family prominent in civil or politi-

cal affairs? Or in education:
2) Your part, if any in
Federation, Did the Federation g
a special role to women
3) Your views on the special I
to be played by women in
Indian public life.
4) Your own part in the aff
of your country.
If you could possibly find time
discuss these questions, I should
most grateful.

African Women On Being

Notando Jabavu, wife of an Englishman, a member,
of the Bantu tribe of South Africa, who was educated and
has long been resident in Britain and is a well know writer
and broadcaster, spoke recently in a British Radio pro,
gramme about what she means by 'being westernised'.
"We o wn everything that we possess of appreciation
of wes:ern,values", she said, "to our contact with mission-
aries. When I say 'westernised' I'm comparing our sort
of family with the pagan people, who have decided to live
the life of their forefathers. But apart from the fact that
they have not accepted the Christian religion, they are very
much part of vs. Many of my own forebears decided not
to follow the Christian way they decided to go on as
they were, but we're related, we belong to the same clan.
They come to our house, and we go to their huts, and so
on. The whole of our life as Africans is bated on' spoken
language. It was only reduced to writing by the mission-
aries about a hundred and fifty years ago, so really only a
small part of it is a literary life. But my family were
the sort who could partake of both a literary tradition in
English and also in Xhos', which has been bringing up
writers.ever since the language was reduced to writing, and
also this immense talking tradition, the tradition of convert,

Dr. L. A. E. Wong icceiving his medal, for
meretorious service fror Mr. Duncan Sahdys.







It is with deep regret that we report the death or
Mrs. Alma Theresa Clarke, aged 72, which took place at noon
(32 New St., Roseau) at 12.35 a. m. on December 30. She was
the widow of late Supt. of Prisons N.A. Clarke (father of the present
Prison Superintendent).
Since returning from a health trip to Barbados in i96r she had
been ill in bed and never regained her strength. The loss of her
devoted sister Miss Rosa Jno. Baptiste :n Oct. I963 following a serious
illness left Mrs. Clarke in pitiable condition, to be cared fcr by ne-
phew Gerald Smith and great-nephew Roderick Laviniere until her
niece Gwendoline Cyrille n6: Carbon took charge with devotion.
After a painful fall, Mrs. Clarke's condition worsened and she
received Extreme Unction. Surrounded by the holy emblems of
Christmas, this popular and pleasant lady who was a devout mem-
ber of the Roman Catholic Church and of several religious societies,
died and was buried on D'c 30, leaving several relatives here and
abroad to mourn her loss. Remembered by many, may her soul
rest in peace.
Mr. Wilford Smith, Gerald Smith, Gwendoline Cyrille
(nee) Carbon, and Veronne Brian (nee) Peters with families here
and abroad wish to convey through this medium their expression of
sincere gratitude and appreciation, to all families, friends, neighours
and to the Church who sent Wreaths, Cards and in so many ways
played their part to give comfort and consolation. Your efforts are
