DOLLAR POWER STATION FOR DOMINICA

Work Starts On Padu River Scheme | Of To St. Vincent} = seariy $6.5 Million Budget

Ree a Engineer George Rodham gave details last

weck of the new million dollar hydro-clectiic power
station to be buile by the Commonwealh Development
Corporation 450 ft. below the existing Trafaigar Station.

In the words of the
Engincer-in-Charge in Dom-
inica, Mr. H. B. Eniwistle,
the site is a ‘natural’. Water
is taken just below the con-
fluence of the twin Trafalgar
Falls and led by an open
channel to pick up the tail-
race discharge from the exist-
ing power station from
whence it is p:ped parallel to
the road for a mile down to
the confluence of the Padu
and Roseau Rivers; there the
new power station will be
built with two 800 kilowatt

turbines.

Island Capacity Doubled

When the new station
comes into operation in
about two years’ time the
generating capacity of the
island will have been
doubled. At te present
time the expansion of the
Dominica Electricity Services
has bees so rapid that even
the capacity of the two new
260 kw. diesel units installed
last year at Trafalgar has been
nearly taken up.

Work has started at the
foot of the Falls where there
is a small island in the mid-
dle of the Roseau River:
dams are being built either
side of this island to divert
the water to below the Trafal-
gar Station. From then on
the water will be taken by a
wood stave pipeline 40 inches
in diameter to a forebay (on
land owned by Mr. Ayoub
Karam) from whence it will
be taken to the power station
at the bottom of the hill in
two steel pipes (penstocks).

All Local Labour

In our interview with Mr.
Rodham, he stressed that all
local labour will being used
on the job and that all pro-
fits from C. D. C. operation
in Dominica have been
ploughed back into the

island. The new installation St

has been designed by the
consulting engineers to the
C.D.C., Messrs. Ewbank
and Partners Ltd. of Jamaica,
Londor, Trinidad and
Toronto and fresh capital
invesiment is being used.

The Ladies’ Man

By Anna Burnette:

In the little town of Fruitful Vale, where I worked as
secretary to 2 novelist, I almost felt surprised at the large

cirele of ftiends that I had collected after my brief residence

of four years. Among these new fornd acquaintances was
a handsome young man named Robert Baines. He had the
quality of attracting people of both sexes and of all ages.
This was cue partly to the fame and popularity which he
had achieved as leader of an orchestra, and partly to las
ftiendly disposition. Thus it was that I too was influenced
by this hypnotising quality.

As is often the case in such circumstances, we deve
loped a casual comradeship; and he often picked me as his
reliable confidante. He called me Carl for Carol and I
called him Bert for Robert. After a time, Robert an-
nounced to me his intention of becoming engaged to a
young woman named Ruth Grenville. I congratulated
him, and wished him all the best. A month later, I was
happy to be amoag the guests at their engagement arty.

Now, Ruth had a very good friend of about her own
age, named Betty Saunders, whom she introduced to Robert.
While they were together one day, Betty remarked that
Ruth was lucky to be engaged to Robert. Ruch answered,
“Thanks for the compliment, but me would never have
met, if I had consented to live with my aunt in the country.”
Ther: she smiled.

Her aun had long wanted Ruth to come and [ie
with her, but the latter preferred the gaieties of the town.
A few wecks after Betty and Rush had conversed, her aunt

_ again invited her to. stay with her during her husband’s
-.absence of six months. She could go back to town on
his return. To this, Ruth agreed, not suspecting what it
would mean to Robert. :
During the first few weeks of her absence, Reabert,
vranting a substitute for Ruth, beftiended Bey who was

pictures. On observing this, I took the liberty to warn
Robert against letting it happen'too often. He said he
would not. However, this went on without further inter-
ferance.
grown somewhat aloof and sensitive towatds him. Then
followed shocking ramours. At first I refused to believe
them; but socn came that fatal day, and my heart sank as
I realised the bitter truth. Betty had become pregnant.

Nevertheless, she wrote of her misfu.tune to her friend
Ruth, who in her reply, included the fellowing:—

“Well Betty, [am sorry but also ashamed of vou.
I thought you would have kuown better. You have
lowered the honour of womanhocd; and must not expect
our friendship to remain as it used to be.”

Rober: was obliged to support Betty, for the situation
had cost her a gooa job.

While this was happening another affair had been
going on betwesa, Rebert and Sandra Jules, a teeriage sixth-
form student of the Eversley High Schoo]. On discussing
with him literary books which T eccassionally lent to him,
he told me thathe had read and lent them to Sandra. I
thought nothing unusual about that, for it is a casual habit
among young people. Then Sandra bagan taking too
great an interest in Robert; and the borrowed books gained
moze of her intention than did her lessens at school.
Formerly an industrious student, she no longer cared
whether she passed or failed her examinations. A friend
of hers, who seemed worried about Sandra’s attitude, hinted
it to me; and I spoke to Robert, who answered,

“But Carl, it isn’t my one afternoon, and on_ her
fault. I cannot frankly se- arrival she found that she

her. What a sensation was
being caused as a result of
tne affairs in which Robert
was indulging! Yet, I re-
gret to say, that most people
treated it as a joke. There
seemed to be nothing that I
could do.

Robert’s aunt, with whom
she lived, was now over-
whelmed with displeasure at
the behaviour of her nephew.
She told it to Sandra’s
friends, who warned her
against being involved in
such rumours Robert’s
cousin tried to corsole and
speak to him about his coa-
duct. His friends noticed
his depression; but, being a
casual crowd, and knowing
him to be humorous and
fond of his own way, they
all refrained from criticising
hira.

Among these companions
was a tall and handsome
fellow named Johnson Haze.
They had been friends since
their schooldays and he also
belonged to che orchestral
hand. One. day, when
Johnson asked Robert: why
it was that the girls were so

crazy after him, he answered.

“Tr is simply my ability to

schoalgizl), was to be b.ides-

Such were the qualities cf
this young man, who came
to be widely known as “The
Ladies’ Man.”

Not long ago, I was tak-

_ had never seen any rhinoceros.

She very kindly offered to

take me on a trip to two of in two secor:ds.

Ve may call it the speech from the
Thronc or the Administrator’s Ad-
dress -- accordiag to your predilection —
although we are personally sure that if and
when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. I
should visit Dominica, she would address
us from the humble yet dignified Speaker’s
chair. It is a delegated throne speech
anyway, and that is why the Administra-
tor of the day uses the cool accents of
reason when he delivers 2 prepared gov-
exnmental summary of. achievements an
intentions. We thecefore welcome a
‘Legislative Council decision that the
recent throne speech and the budget speech
should not be debated together.

Sir Walter Scott said: “with the morn-
ing ceol reflection: came”; in this case the
moderation of a throne speech precedes
the heat of two debates and many argu-
ments; and over them all “foul whisper-
ings are abroad” (Macbeth). False
rumour and reason do not match well

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29,1974

~ REASON AND RUMOUR —

these days have a political basis, but some
are simply mischievous. A policeman ts
summoned by telephone to Grand Fond
to attend his grandmother’s deathbed: he
gathers telatives, gets transport and rushes
to the scene — and finds his grandmother
cooking and quite healthy! In eastcoast
Salybia (a religious and we are glad to
add, incredulous informant tells us) ‘a
Russian helicopter” is alleged to have
touched down! A poor debilitated
minority group is accused of threatening
to take Roseau by force! Even school-

children are dragged into th2 process of

rumour-mongering.

That is why we enjoyed the cool reason’
ed accents of the throne. speech which
presented facts before the hurly-burly of
democratic discussion.

Democratic dis’
cussion is one thing and rumout-mongery |
ing is quite another. In the words of.
‘Dryden, “Some tell, some hear, some

left the unpopulated highway and
were flying down the Siboulie road
through the village of Pte, Michel,
when the accident occurred.

Your Gar No. 1128 was passing
through at 40-50 mls per br. A
little boy of ten and a well fed and
trained dog were on their way home
from an errand. They were sufficiea-
ty clear of your path: yet apparan-
tly your car picked che dog out fram
the pair, aud knocked the thigh out
from the spine.

The dog was seriously datnaged
and had to be taken to a doctor. i:
remains a miracle to witness that the
boy escaped uninjured.

Trad Unions And Development
By Tom Mboya

(Tom Mboya is Minister of Justice and Constitutional
Affairs in Kenya and was formerly Minister of Labour and General
Secretary of the Kenya Federation of Labour.)

What is to be the role cf the trade unicn movement
in Independent Africa? Just as the continent is cvolving its
own form cf political orgariza.ion and constitutional struc-
ture, so must the workrs’ leaders also develop a suitable
pattern of behaviour and organizadon.

It has been reveatediy stated that the people of Afr:ca
should not slavishly imitae methods and attitudes which
have been found appropriate for other areas and in other
historical circumstances. Just as che one-party system may
prove in Africa to be mo:e demo:ratic than obstructive multi-party sistem, so may trade union cc-
operation with nationalist governments best serve the
workers’ interests.

We in East Aftica are working out the form of
African Socialism to, which President Nyerere of Tungan-
yika nas given the Swahili name Ujamaa, f.nilytood,
We aim to unite those attitudes of co-operation and com
munity effort derived from our traciioral societics to build
our new nations and the new Africa.

Trade unions must always iemember that they are
part of the I.rger family which ts the nation and continent-
wide frateraity. This does not mzan that the po.tticians
are looking for excuses co suppress the workers. The
political leaders of Aftica appreciate the role played by the
workets in the vanguard of the struggle against colomalism.
They look for the co-operation of the uniuns in the new
task ef nation-building. Adjustments have to be made if
the.ignity of the earlier struggle is to be preserved. In the
battle for Independence, acts of-obstructiveness, e.g. go-slow,
and even industrial sabotage were’ sometimes found to be

“proper means‘in the battle to free ou: countries irom impe-

rialism. After all, we were not unaware that simuar
methods had been used by trade unionists elsewhere in their
struggle for «conomic, social and political justice.

- [| do not believe that such tactics are appropriate to
the circumstances of free Aftica today. Trade ‘union lead:
ets have the difficult task of re-educating their followers to
change their attitudes towards employers and towards the
government. We appreciate the difficult problem they face
in persuading their members that the businessman who yes-
rerday was the arch-suppoiter of the colonialist regime,
today becomes the colleague of their nationalist government.
I believe-that one of the greatest tasks trade unions can per-
form in Africa is to bring about changes of atuitude among
their members. They must persuade the workers that if

“Wwe are to progress, they must put greatsr effort into their
‘work.

Too often—and this is true anywhere in the world —
people tend to think only of strikes and the negative side
of the labour movement when trade unions are mentioned.
I believe more attention should be giveri to the positive side
of the labour movement and to the great asset it represents.
Even in the approach to fundamental questions, such as the
right to strike, freedom of association, the right of collective
bargaining, some African countries have departed from the
models of the West. Those who rush in and criticize
should first consider the conditions of Africa. We are in
a continuing state of emergency. The majority of our peo-
ple never reach a peaceful old age because of sickness.
Few can follow a truly enlightened existence because they
do not have the educational opportunities. Most live
under such a condition of poverty that they must eke out
miserable and narrow lives.

Under such conditions there is an imperative need for
labour-- and capital as well, for that matter—to c-operate
fully with the government. I would not be happy to see
the curtailment of trade union rights in my own country.
But the guarantee for the continuance of those rights will
rest upon the recognition by the unions of the responsible
tole they must play in building property. In the. West,
the unions can rightly. concentrate upon gaining for their

To the Magistrate Dist. “G” &
Chiet of Police,

I, LEONTINE DUPIGNY now resid-
ing at Bataca Parish of St. David: do

’

Aftica was wasteful and mil'tated against economic growth. hese vy give you notice that it s my it~

It ws highly migratory, unsk

illed and uneducated. What tention to apply at the Magistrate’s

is needed is a skilled labour force, with a degree of literacy Court to be held at Portsmouth on

and with enough stability and security to be able to acquire
skills, experience and genuine industrial inter:st in the

tasks to be performed.

Linked with the incaease in effi
ciency is an aspect which is free-
quently overlooked. A skilled and
stable labour force can provide a
reliable and woithwhile market for
Aftica’s own products. Furtiier-
more a stable labour force can pro-
vide the basis for insti.uting work-
ers saving schemes, so that a contci-
bution is made to investment.

1 believe any Trade Union leader
would wish to see his organization
concern itself with more than just
che wage interest alone. Responsible
lsaders_ should encourage pro-
grammes cf education particularly
adult, technical and vocational train-
ing. I believe that trade Union are
capable of making a real contribu-
tion in these fields, both in co-op-
eration with the government and
with industry and aiso by organ-
izing their cwn independent pro-
grammes. Similarly in the field of
health which is closely linked wah
productivity—the trade unions caa
help with schemes cf health educa-

-tion and even covogerate in thees-

tablishment of health :centres and
health insurance schemes.

-I have said that we do not intend
slavishly . to:.copy what others: have
done. This is. far from saying that
we reject experience from outside.
Many countries have demonstrated
that trade unions need an economic
interest as well as a wage interest,
I-am thinking of workers co-oper-
atives and social organizations in the
Scandinavia, Germany, Switzer-
land and Israel. Here trade unions
showed the way in putting forward
development programmes in the field
of retail and whoiesale trade, housing
and even banking and insurance. I
ama great believer in this line of
development and support the moves
already nade in these directions by
labour movements in A ftica, includ-
ing those by the Kenya Federation
of Labour.

By such projects the organized
workers will become real partners in
the all-important task of building
the new Affica, They learn the
intricacies of economic planning and
take on the responsibilities that make
it possible for them to see develop-
ment from one point of view.
Equally important, the trade unions
become more stable and broader in
outlook by assuming such zesponsi-
bilities.

In other countries of Africa, in
Algeria for example; the trade- unions
and workers’ organizations have even
entered the productive sector. Because
of the problems an d opportunities
created by the departure of settlers from
Algeria, the workers have taken over
the running of workshops and estates.
Here again one sees the value of work-
ers directly associating themselves with
national development and becoming
aware of wider problems and. chal-
lenges. We in Kenya also have a
problem of redistribution of the land.

Blazkaurn — Run Spree

Blackburn handed out a sound
thrashing to Combermere last week-
end at the Botanical Gardens. The
much celebrated duel turned cut to
be almost a one sided affair, A
sound statt of 37 by openers Edison
Joseph and Anthony Phillips. paved
the way to a run getting spree by the
Blackburn top batsmen. Clem
John 142 not out and Phillips 120
were engaged in a sparkling 3rd
wicket partnership of 223 which
produced some cf the most brilliant
stroke play for the season. This was
John’s second undefeated century ia
consecutive league matches for the
treason. Carlier cn 39 imperious
runs flowed from the bat of Einstein
Shillingford regirtering 9 fours in
the process. Blackbuzn declared
at 340 for 3.

The uphill task was too much
for Combermere and they recovered
from 37 for 6 to reach 141 which
was insufficient to save the follow
on. Nesty 5 for 44 and Clem
John 3 for 28 engineered the rout.
Following on, the batting was more
fortuitous than purposefvl and this
time Combermere fell for 86. Two
usefulinnings of 29 and 28
not out by Johnson Isaac, 27 and
26 by John Joseph. and Joha
Lawrence respectively were the only
bright feature of }Combermere’s ue

of Spartan’s bowling being Grayson
Shillingford 4 for 35 and Clancy
Casimir 3 for 28.

On their turn at the crease Spar-
tan had little answer to K. Laurent
who routed them for 89, Lagging 8
for 34 in the process. When later,
however, S.M.A. were shor out for
126 it was generally felt that the 186
needed for victory was not beyond
Spartan’s reach, They failed by 11
runs to reach the target. A most
pleasing feature was the return to form
of top batsman Irving Shillingford
who scoreda splendid or.
K. Laurent bowled particularly well,
and his 5 fot $6 gave hima match
analysis of 13 for go.

Second Division Results

D.G. S. continued their run of

BOXING

Clay Dethrones Liston

Cassius Marcellus Clay, better
known as the ‘Louisville Lip”
created one of the greatest upsets in
the last decade in the boxing pro-
fesion when he dethroned Cham-
pion Sonny Liston at Miami Beach
Florida in their much publicised
fight. Clay entered the ring a 7
to 1 underdog, but proved that he
can fight almost as well as he can
chat by standing up to Liston far
better than the experts predicted. A
sprained shoulder forced Liston to
retire at the start of round seven, but
up tothat time Clay had given a
good account of himself. Too many
fans, however, the fight was a terrific
disappointment and there is notja
guaranteed return clause.

Clay joins the celebrated few who
have entered the ring as $ to I or
more underdogs and emerged win-
ners, Others are Gene Tunney,
Jersey Joe Walcott and up to recen-
tly Ingemar Johannson.

DOLLAR POWER STATION FOR DOMINICA

Work Starts On Padu River Scheme | Of To St. Vincent} = seariy $6.5 Million Budget

Ree a Engineer George Rodham gave details last

weck of the new million dollar hydro-clectiic power
station to be buile by the Commonwealh Development
Corporation 450 ft. below the existing Trafaigar Station.

In the words of the
Engincer-in-Charge in Dom-
inica, Mr. H. B. Eniwistle,
the site is a ‘natural’. Water
is taken just below the con-
fluence of the twin Trafalgar
Falls and led by an open
channel to pick up the tail-
race discharge from the exist-
ing power station from
whence it is p:ped parallel to
the road for a mile down to
the confluence of the Padu
and Roseau Rivers; there the
new power station will be
built with two 800 kilowatt

turbines.

Island Capacity Doubled

When the new station
comes into operation in
about two years’ time the
generating capacity of the
island will have been
doubled. At te present
time the expansion of the
Dominica Electricity Services
has bees so rapid that even
the capacity of the two new
260 kw. diesel units installed
last year at Trafalgar has been
nearly taken up.

Work has started at the
foot of the Falls where there
is a small island in the mid-
dle of the Roseau River:
dams are being built either
side of this island to divert
the water to below the Trafal-
gar Station. From then on
the water will be taken by a
wood stave pipeline 40 inches
in diameter to a forebay (on
land owned by Mr. Ayoub
Karam) from whence it will
be taken to the power station
at the bottom of the hill in
two steel pipes (penstocks).

All Local Labour

In our interview with Mr.
Rodham, he stressed that all
local labour will being used
on the job and that all pro-
fits from C. D. C. operation
in Dominica have been
ploughed back into the

island. The new installation St

has been designed by the
consulting engineers to the
C.D.C., Messrs. Ewbank
and Partners Ltd. of Jamaica,
Londor, Trinidad and
Toronto and fresh capital
invesiment is being used.

The Ladies’ Man

By Anna Burnette:

In the little town of Fruitful Vale, where I worked as
secretary to 2 novelist, I almost felt surprised at the large

cirele of ftiends that I had collected after my brief residence

of four years. Among these new fornd acquaintances was
a handsome young man named Robert Baines. He had the
quality of attracting people of both sexes and of all ages.
This was cue partly to the fame and popularity which he
had achieved as leader of an orchestra, and partly to las
ftiendly disposition. Thus it was that I too was influenced
by this hypnotising quality.

As is often the case in such circumstances, we deve
loped a casual comradeship; and he often picked me as his
reliable confidante. He called me Carl for Carol and I
called him Bert for Robert. After a time, Robert an-
nounced to me his intention of becoming engaged to a
young woman named Ruth Grenville. I congratulated
him, and wished him all the best. A month later, I was
happy to be amoag the guests at their engagement arty.

Now, Ruth had a very good friend of about her own
age, named Betty Saunders, whom she introduced to Robert.
While they were together one day, Betty remarked that
Ruth was lucky to be engaged to Robert. Ruch answered,
“Thanks for the compliment, but me would never have
met, if I had consented to live with my aunt in the country.”
Ther: she smiled.

Her aun had long wanted Ruth to come and [ie
with her, but the latter preferred the gaieties of the town.
A few wecks after Betty and Rush had conversed, her aunt

_ again invited her to. stay with her during her husband’s
-.absence of six months. She could go back to town on
his return. To this, Ruth agreed, not suspecting what it
would mean to Robert. :

followed shocking ramours. At first I refused to believe
them; but socn came that fatal day, and my heart sank as
I realised the bitter truth. Betty had become pregnant.

Nevertheless, she wrote of her misfu.tune to her friend
Ruth, who in her reply, included the fellowing:—

“Well Betty, [am sorry but also ashamed of vou.
I thought you would have kuown better. You have
lowered the honour of womanhocd; and must not expect
our friendship to remain as it used to be.”

Rober: was obliged to support Betty, for the situation
had cost her a gooa job.

While this was happening another affair had been
going on betwesa, Rebert and Sandra Jules, a teeriage sixth-
form student of the Eversley High Schoo]. On discussing
with him literary books which T eccassionally lent to him,
he told me thathe had read and lent them to Sandra. I
thought nothing unusual about that, for it is a casual habit
among young people. Then Sandra bagan taking too
great an interest in Robert; and the borrowed books gained

Formerly an industrious student, she no longer cared
whether she passed or failed her examinations. A friend
of hers, who seemed worried about Sandra’s attitude, hinted
it to me; and I spoke to Robert, who answered,

her. What a sensation was
being caused as a result of
tne affairs in which Robert
was indulging! Yet, I re-
gret to say, that most people
treated it as a joke. There
seemed to be nothing that I
could do.

Robert’s aunt, with whom
she lived, was now over-
whelmed with displeasure at
the behaviour of her nephew.
She told it to Sandra’s
friends, who warned her
against being involved in
such rumours Robert’s
cousin tried to corsole and
speak to him about his coa-

his depression; but, being a
casual crowd, and knowing
him to be humorous and
fond of his own way, they
all refrained from criticising
hira.

Among these companions
was a tall and handsome
fellow named Johnson Haze.
They had been friends since
their schooldays and he also
belonged to che orchestral
hand. One. day, when
Johnson asked Robert: why

crazy after him, he answered.

Ve may call it the speech from the
Thronc or the Administrator’s Ad-
dress -- accordiag to your predilection —
although we are personally sure that if and
when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. I
should visit Dominica, she would address
us from the humble yet dignified Speaker’s
chair. It is a delegated throne speech
anyway, and that is why the Administra-
tor of the day uses the cool accents of
reason when he delivers 2 prepared gov-
exnmental summary of. achievements an
intentions. We thecefore welcome a
‘Legislative Council decision that the
recent throne speech and the budget speech
should not be debated together.

Sir Walter Scott said: “with the morn-
ing ceol reflection: came”; in this case the
moderation of a throne speech precedes
the heat of two debates and many argu-
ments; and over them all “foul whisper-
ings are abroad” (Macbeth). False
rumour and reason do not match well

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 29,1974

~ REASON AND RUMOUR —

these days have a political basis, but some
are simply mischievous. A policeman ts
summoned by telephone to Grand Fond
to attend his grandmother’s deathbed: he
gathers telatives, gets transport and rushes
to the scene — and finds his grandmother
cooking and quite healthy! In eastcoast
Salybia (a religious and we are glad to
add, incredulous informant tells us) ‘a
Russian helicopter” is alleged to have
touched down! A poor debilitated
minority group is accused of threatening
to take Roseau by force! Even school-

children are dragged into th2 process of

rumour-mongering.

That is why we enjoyed the cool reason’
ed accents of the throne. speech which
presented facts before the hurly-burly of
democratic discussion.

Democratic dis’
cussion is one thing and rumout-mongery |
ing is quite another. In the words of.

Dear Madam—Thankfiul if you

ter:—-My dear driver of Car No.
1128, Feb.6sh 1964 8.00 p.m

I expect that this form of address
will come as a shock to readers but
not to the driver concerned, as he
knows he is a “hit-and-run” driver.

You had a delightful run from
Soufnere, the Prefect taking the hills
with ease at breakneck speed. You
left the unpopulated highway and
were flying down the Siboulie road
through the village of Pte, Michel,
when the accident occurred.

Your Gar No. 1128 was passing
through at 40-50 mls per br. A
little boy of ten and a well fed and
trained dog were on their way home
from an errand. They were sufficiea-
ty clear of your path: yet apparan-
tly your car picked che dog out fram
the pair, aud knocked the thigh out
from the spine.

The dog was seriously datnaged
and had to be taken to a doctor. i:
remains a miracle to witness that the
boy escaped uninjured.

You can imagine how miserable
I felt about this, It Mould be poor

done to you.

You wiil see however that many
of the villagers having young chil-

judge of news, some

make it.”

dren will ‘corroborate what I say—
that the dog was-in no way respon-
sible for the accident.

I have done all that is possible
to savethe dos’s life and it’s young
pupswho had to be fed from a
baby’s bottle; and they won't die
from the bounce which hurled the
dog 25 fect away.

L only hope that to expedite a
cure, the police will take the neces-
sary steps to have you people with
horse power engines from your own
selves; and they can start by posting

up some signs and let offenders go -

‘“‘Emphatically, yes!’’ It cleans

Trad Unions And Development
By Tom Mboya

(Tom Mboya is Minister of Justice and Constitutional
Affairs in Kenya and was formerly Minister of Labour and General
Secretary of the Kenya Federation of Labour.)

What is to be the role cf the trade unicn movement
in Independent Africa? Just as the continent is cvolving its
own form cf political orgariza.ion and constitutional struc-
ture, so must the workrs’ leaders also develop a suitable
pattern of behaviour and organizadon.

It has been reveatediy stated that the people of Afr:ca
should not slavishly imitae methods and attitudes which
have been found appropriate for other areas and in other
historical circumstances. Just as che one-party system may
prove in Africa to be mo:e demo:ratic than obstructive multi-party sistem, so may trade union cc-
operation with nationalist governments best serve the
workers’ interests.

We in East Aftica are working out the form of
African Socialism to, which President Nyerere of Tungan-
yika nas given the Swahili name Ujamaa, f.nilytood,
We aim to unite those attitudes of co-operation and com
munity effort derived from our traciioral societics to build
our new nations and the new Africa.

Trade unions must always iemember that they are
part of the I.rger family which ts the nation and continent-
wide frateraity. This does not mzan that the po.tticians
are looking for excuses co suppress the workers. The
political leaders of Aftica appreciate the role played by the
workets in the vanguard of the struggle against colomalism.
They look for the co-operation of the uniuns in the new
task ef nation-building. Adjustments have to be made if
the.ignity of the earlier struggle is to be preserved. In the
battle for Independence, acts of-obstructiveness, e.g. go-slow,
and even industrial sabotage were’ sometimes found to be

“proper means‘in the battle to free ou: countries irom impe-

rialism. After all, we were not unaware that simuar
methods had been used by trade unionists elsewhere in their
struggle for «conomic, social and political justice.

- [| do not believe that such tactics are appropriate to
the circumstances of free Aftica today. Trade ‘union lead:
ets have the difficult task of re-educating their followers to
change their attitudes towards employers and towards the
government. We appreciate the difficult problem they face
in persuading their members that the businessman who yes-
rerday was the arch-suppoiter of the colonialist regime,
today becomes the colleague of their nationalist government.
I believe-that one of the greatest tasks trade unions can per-
form in Africa is to bring about changes of atuitude among
their members. They must persuade the workers that if

“Wwe are to progress, they must put greatsr effort into their
‘work.

Too often—and this is true anywhere in the world —
people tend to think only of strikes and the negative side
of the labour movement when trade unions are mentioned.
I believe more attention should be giveri to the positive side
of the labour movement and to the great asset it represents.
Even in the approach to fundamental questions, such as the
right to strike, freedom of association, the right of collective
bargaining, some African countries have departed from the
models of the West. Those who rush in and criticize
should first consider the conditions of Africa. We are in
a continuing state of emergency. The majority of our peo-
ple never reach a peaceful old age because of sickness.
Few can follow a truly enlightened existence because they
do not have the educational opportunities. Most live
under such a condition of poverty that they must eke out
miserable and narrow lives.

Under such conditions there is an imperative need for
labour-- and capital as well, for that matter—to c-operate
fully with the government. I would not be happy to see
the curtailment of trade union rights in my own country.
But the guarantee for the continuance of those rights will
rest upon the recognition by the unions of the responsible
tole they must play in building property. In the. West,
the unions can rightly. concentrate upon gaining for their

To the Magistrate Dist. “G” &
Chiet of Police,

I, LEONTINE DUPIGNY now resid-
ing at Bataca Parish of St. David: do

’

Aftica was wasteful and mil'tated against economic growth. hese vy give you notice that it s my it~

It ws highly migratory, unsk

illed and uneducated. What tention to apply at the Magistrate’s

is needed is a skilled labour force, with a degree of literacy Court to be held at Portsmouth on

and with enough stability and security to be able to acquire
skills, experience and genuine industrial inter:st in the

tasks to be performed.

Linked with the incaease in effi
ciency is an aspect which is free-
quently overlooked. A skilled and
stable labour force can provide a
reliable and woithwhile market for
Aftica’s own products. Furtiier-
more a stable labour force can pro-
vide the basis for insti.uting work-
ers saving schemes, so that a contci-
bution is made to investment.

1 believe any Trade Union leader
would wish to see his organization
concern itself with more than just
che wage interest alone. Responsible
lsaders_ should encourage pro-
grammes cf education particularly
adult, technical and vocational train-
ing. I believe that trade Union are
capable of making a real contribu-
tion in these fields, both in co-op-
eration with the government and
with industry and aiso by organ-
izing their cwn independent pro-
grammes. Similarly in the field of
health which is closely linked wah
productivity—the trade unions caa
help with schemes cf health educa-

-tion and even covogerate in thees-

tablishment of health :centres and
health insurance schemes.

-I have said that we do not intend
slavishly . to:.copy what others: have
done. This is. far from saying that
we reject experience from outside.
Many countries have demonstrated
that trade unions need an economic
interest as well as a wage interest,
I-am thinking of workers co-oper-
atives and social organizations in the
Scandinavia, Germany, Switzer-
land and Israel. Here trade unions
showed the way in putting forward
development programmes in the field
of retail and whoiesale trade, housing
and even banking and insurance. I
ama great believer in this line of
development and support the moves
already nade in these directions by
labour movements in A ftica, includ-
ing those by the Kenya Federation
of Labour.

By such projects the organized
workers will become real partners in
the all-important task of building
the new Affica, They learn the
intricacies of economic planning and
take on the responsibilities that make
it possible for them to see develop-
ment from one point of view.
Equally important, the trade unions
become more stable and broader in
outlook by assuming such zesponsi-
bilities.

In other countries of Africa, in
Algeria for example; the trade- unions
and workers’ organizations have even
entered the productive sector. Because
of the problems an d opportunities
created by the departure of settlers from
Algeria, the workers have taken over
the running of workshops and estates.
Here again one sees the value of work-
ers directly associating themselves with
national development and becoming
aware of wider problems and. chal-
lenges. We in Kenya also have a
problem of redistribution of the land.

Blazkaurn — Run Spree

Blackburn handed out a sound
thrashing to Combermere last week-
end at the Botanical Gardens. The
much celebrated duel turned cut to
be almost a one sided affair, A
sound statt of 37 by openers Edison
Joseph and Anthony Phillips. paved
the way to a run getting spree by the
Blackburn top batsmen. Clem
John 142 not out and Phillips 120
were engaged in a sparkling 3rd
wicket partnership of 223 which
produced some cf the most brilliant
stroke play for the season. This was
John’s second undefeated century ia
consecutive league matches for the
treason. Carlier cn 39 imperious
runs flowed from the bat of Einstein
Shillingford regirtering 9 fours in
the process. Blackbuzn declared
at 340 for 3.

The uphill task was too much
for Combermere and they recovered
from 37 for 6 to reach 141 which
was insufficient to save the follow
on. Nesty 5 for 44 and Clem
John 3 for 28 engineered the rout.
Following on, the batting was more
fortuitous than purposefvl and this
time Combermere fell for 86. Two
usefulinnings of 29 and 28
not out by Johnson Isaac, 27 and
26 by John Joseph. and Joha
Lawrence respectively were the only
bright feature of }Combermere’s ue

On their turn at the crease Spar-
tan had little answer to K. Laurent
who routed them for 89, Lagging 8
for 34 in the process. When later,
however, S.M.A. were shor out for
126 it was generally felt that the 186
needed for victory was not beyond
Spartan’s reach, They failed by 11
runs to reach the target. A most
pleasing feature was the return to form
of top batsman Irving Shillingford
who scoreda splendid or.

BOXING

Clay Dethrones Liston

Cassius Marcellus Clay, better
known as the ‘Louisville Lip”
created one of the greatest upsets in
the last decade in the boxing pro-
fesion when he dethroned Cham-
pion Sonny Liston at Miami Beach
Florida in their much publicised
fight. Clay entered the ring a 7
to 1 underdog, but proved that he
can fight almost as well as he can
chat by standing up to Liston far
better than the experts predicted. A
sprained shoulder forced Liston to
retire at the start of round seven, but
up tothat time Clay had given a
good account of himself. Too many
fans, however, the fight was a terrific
disappointment and there is notja
guaranteed return clause.

Clay joins the celebrated few who
have entered the ring as $ to I or
more underdogs and emerged win-
ners, Others are Gene Tunney,
Jersey Joe Walcott and up to recen-
tly Ingemar Johannson.
