Martinique Costumes

Martinique’s welcome for
the General exceeded the
most sanguine expectations.
After he had made his first
speech, pent-up crowds broke
the barriers and advanced to
embrace him. Police ‘and
gendarmarie got the President
back to Kis car with good-
natured firmness. In the
harbour the battleships Jeanne
d Arc, Resolue@7 Victor Schoel-
scher as well as two mine-
sweepers, beflagged private
craft, and a little white yacht
with orange sails made a
background for the rostrum,
before which shone the
double-barred ‘croix de Lor-

France. . Tiny girls in Mar-

attired but wearing tricolour
foulards added to the _brilli-

by a smart parade of marines
from the fleet, people coming

from the Jeanne d’Arc. A
flight of helicopters _ buzzed
around in formation. All

anticipated disturbances by
pro-independence demonstra-
tors were minimal, although

‘there i8 a strcig movement in

favour of internal self-govern-

of Martiniquans triumphed
over agitation during de

talk in the Assembly Hall of the Wesley High School on
religious mattcrs, accompanied on the platform by the
Methodist Superiatendent Rev. F, A. Roberts, and ‘the
Head of the Anglican Church in Dominica, Canon Lane.



eatDing in che |

It was a far cry from the
“religious rios” in Domin-
ica of October 18th 1847 !!
Speaking on his two Ecu-
menical Council visits to
Rome in. 1962 and 1963,
Bishop Boghaert said “Christ
himself wants the re-un:on
of all Christians and it is up
to us to work to that end”.

Despite the rain, a consi
derable crowd of Protestants

attended the meeting which

was opened by the singing of
the hymn “Christ from
whom all blessings flow”

Boak, followed by a ptayer
by Canon Lane.

Letter From John Wesley

Bishop Boghaert referred
at the start of his address to
a letter written to the then
Pope by the founder of the
Methodist C h u rch, Rev.
John Wesley, pleading reli-
gicustolerance. “The
whole world,” said the Bis-
hop of Reseau, “has been
following the deliberations of
the Ecumenical Council pre-
sided over by Pope John
XXII and later Pope Paul
VI’. He referred to the
twenty Ecumenical Councils
held previously and gave
many statistics of the num-
ber of prelates attending this
last Council, including 76
non-Catholics. His talk
was illustrated with slides,
some of which portrayed the
strangely bearded and garbed
patriarchs of branches of the
Christian Church, such as
the Ethiopian, Greek and
Russian Orthodex Churches.

“The Individual Soul’

The distinguished speaker touched
on various aspects of the 70 items
on the agenda ofthe last Couacil,
particularly on changes in the litur-
gy and the optional use of the vern-
acular (local language) instead of
Latin for those parts of the service in



which thé congregation participated:
the attitude of the Church to the
Jews was also discussed, and’ the
postion of women: :
Listening Methodists were in;ag-
reement with the Bishop’s statement
that “i: was the business of the in-
dividual soul'to find ‘his own way
to God”—this stress onthe indivi-

Apologetic Defensiveness

Last Week’s D. L. PB, Meeting
The deferred meeting of

the D. L.. P. at the foct- of

Federation Drive.on Friday
night last week was mainly
of a defensive nature, answet-
ing the attacks of the DUPP

Only outstanding speaker
was the Chief, Minister «who
started by explaining the mis-
representation of his budget
by Opposition. Leader Elkin
Henry. Justifying the repay-
ment of $350,000 to the
U.K. Treasury, he stated
that this was to re-establish
the credit. cf Dominica xftet ”

of the Baron Government
and that, in any casé, some
of the money was ‘C.D. &

applied to new projects.

taunt, hé explained that figur+
es of. $z0 were placed under.
various heads,.. so thar if and
when money ‘became’ avail-
able’ there would be an ac-
eounting head which .would
enable the government to-go

sulation with the Secreiary of

“30 THEY SAY” --

BY BOR & RAY

1 Sonera

Did you ever notice the salesmen who visit Roseau in July selling
Christmas toys, cloth, bells and bows to the merchonts? Fully six months
ahead of the actua! season. Well, right now the Dominica Citrus As-
sociation should be out with a plan to sell cheit oranges and gtapefcuit. ,.
-even though they won’t actually have fruit to ship until late August or
September. . It will be too late to find the buyers when its packing time
and the lament will go out once more: “'Oh, I wish I could sell my
oranges . .. its such 3 pity they must rot when they arc such delicious
oranges and the whoie world loves nice juicy oranges... ”

Is there a man-with-a-plan to market the 50,c00 boxes of the
world’s best grapefruit ... and $,o00° boxes of better-than-average
oranges? Or is the real trouble in the old-fashioned idea that since we
have superior fruit the buyers will “beat a pathto our door”... don’t
we realize that old adage abour a “better mouse trap” is the buak in
1964? And are we so utterly naivé that we believe a shipping concern
that will carry our fruit to England is also going to go out of their way
to get us fair prices once the fruit is landed. Do the schooners that carry
our copra to Barbados fight,for a higher price for us after they get it there?
Does L. Rose & Co, rely on the Harrison Line to sell their lime juice

~ once they have transported it overseas for then? Ofcourse not!

We aré no different than the thousands of other businesses ‘and the
one thing needed ‘today for a successful. operation is MARKETING
AND SALES. | If the boys who catch the ‘ti Ton off Scotts Head
just bring the fisn ashore, the people weuld not have ’ti Ton! It takes
a small army of fish mongers to carry the catch to the people and this is
ordinary marketing and selling! But the market for our excellent grape-
fruit is thousands of miles away ,. , wé can’t afford to send our able local
hucksters to the States and Enyland to sell the fruit... and ifwe could
we would be assured of good sales. What can we do, then? Is there
a man-with-a-plan?

~TROPIGAL FRANCE

My Gop, my Gop, how French you
are!”? — those were the first words
spoken by Geaeral de Gaulle, President of

the French Republic, to a Martiniquan .

crowd last Sunday: a For: de France
~ crowd nearly as large.as the total popula
tion of Dominica. ;

_ There are many Dominicans who have

climbed aboard the gcod ship Colombie in
the dark of night to visit France, often
inspired by deep interest and curiosity; they
number far more than those who, at one-
tenth the cost and about one-fiftieth of
travel time (inclusive of the long drive to
out airport) have aerially cressed the sap
phire Caribbean and touched down ina
tropical France next door where the cli-
mate, the scenery and the countenances of
the population would make any one of us
feel completely at home.

This editorial is not a tourist brochure.
It is simply-a note of wonder that we: sis-

“ter islands “are so aloof “feat” eachother — _have_we not been

True, we Dominicans have a little com-
merce with northern Guadeloupe, but
hardly any informative or cultural links
with either of our French-speaking neigh
bours. This is quite fantastic in a
modern age when the cry is “oné world.”
Recently, however, a few things have
happened to break the ridiculous isolation.
One is the strengthening of the Caribbean
Organisation, which encompasses all the
main regional language groups. Another
is the mutual interest of both British and
French territories in technical developments
in agriculture. A third, and in the long
run the mast important, is the increasing’
ly cordial attitude of the very young (both
French and British nationals) towards each
other. If youth was given more oppor-
tunity to become acquainted, ties of under-
standing and exchange of ideas would
rapidly develop. The Martinique Girl
Guides who greeted Lady Baden Powell
at Lamantin airport seemed every bit as
affectionate towards her as the Girl Guides
of Dominica. It was not by hazard that
General de Gaulle made his longest and
best touring speech to a massed gathering

of youngsters at the Girls’ High School
in Martunique.

Some of us may say, “yes, but going
to Martinique wouldn’t be a change! t
is too near”. That is a fallacy! The
change is so definite:— from the taste of
food and drink to. the sound of words -—
that is sometimes a shock to look around
and see the same coconut fronds waving,
the same hibiscus and alam nda, the same
bananas shooting. For the world of
Martinique is a troptcai French world,
as even the autonomists would admit.
C.L. R. James once said in a Port-of-
Spain library “I will always be pro-
British, because the English language 1s an
indispensable part of. myself.” It is in-
escapable, the How of words like the fow

VIGTORY FOR PRESS FREEDOM

Washington, March 11—
A victory for rhe rights of a
free press. .

This is how the New
York Times describes the de-
cision of the U.S. Supreme
Court Monday reversing a
$500,000 libel judgement
against the paper and four
Negro ministers.

The case arose from an
aavertisement placed in the
Times on March 29, 1960.
The advertisement. sought to
raise funds for civil rights
causes atid attacked condi
tions as they affected race re-
lations in parts cf the South.
A Montgomery, Alabama
oficial, claiming he had been
defamed; was awarded $500,
coo by an Alabama jury.

The Supreme Court
ruling held in effect that a
public official cznnot recover
libel damaged for ctiticisms
of his conduct of public
business unless he proves that
the criticisms were made with
deliberate malice.

By this ruling even a false
statement. about. public offi-
cials would be prctected, un-
less made with acjual malice.
Certain details of the Times
advertisemeat, were conceded
The court decision said
that unlimited libel awards
in cases where public ofkcials
are Criticized would enganger
the freedom to comment on
official conduct, protected by
free speech and itee press
provisions of the U.S. Con-
titution.

No Survival

Said Justice Brennan, de-
livering the court’s cpinion,
“the pall of fear and umidity
imposed upon those who
would give voice to public
criticism is an atmosphere in
which the first amendment
freedoms cannot survive.”

“Tt is an increasingly im-
portant function of the
press’, the Times said
editorially yesterday, “to en-
courage the free give-andiake
of ideas and, above all, to be
free to express criticism of
public officials and public
policies. This is all part of
the life-blood of a democracy.

Necessary Freedom

The WASHINGTON STAR:

“For the first time the
court has held that the first

“This is a freedom which
the court holds to be recess’
ay to full and uninhibited
discussion and debate of
public affairs. But it is also

a freedom, especially in the

case of the press, which murt
be exercised with much. care
and restraint.”

The Chicago Tribune,
which also filed a brief in
behalf of the New York
Times, called the court’s
action “another milestone in
the long fight for freedom of
the press and freedom of
speech.”

“The effect of the deci-
sion,” the Times said, “‘is to
reaficm. the ccnstitutional
rig-it of every citizen to cri-
ticize government and other
officials of government.”-—

Voltaire Replaces
Richelieu

By Darsie Gillie, Manchester Guard-
ian (Britain)

The new to-ftanc bank note,
with Voltaire replacing: Richelieu,
is at last in circulation. It isa
curiously mediocre Voltaire,’ as if
Bamkof Fr

a aid 5
tations in putting the subversive

‘mocker in such a place,

That the Bank of France portrays
public men more convincingly than
poets or pamphleteers is the least
that can be said, but we already
knew that from the comfortably
dull, bourgeois Racine that has
replaced the gay, smuling Henry [V
on the so-franc note. One can
only look forward with trepidation
tothe Corneille that will replace
the brilliant young Bonaparte on
the roo-franc note in a few month’s
time.

Voltaire, in a red jacket and with
a-quill pen in his hand, seems to
be doing his best to reassure pious
and anxions souls.

But hold the note up to the light
and look atthe waterinark on the
round white space; here you will
see another Voltaire, the mocking,
cadaverous head of his old age that
we all know.

Cane Farmers Confer ~
With Distillers

A week ago the DTU executive
and the Gane Farmers Association
met representatives of the five rum
distilleries of Belfast, Macouchcrie,
Canefield, Checkhall and Bagatelle
in an effort to agree upon a fixed
and equitable method of pay nent for
their product. Different conversions
to estimate the sugar content are used
by the different distilleries.

After a cordial discussion, with
Labour Commisstoner Bruney in the
chair, it was agreed basically thet juice
would be estimated on a basis ot the
syrup at 2 figure ef 40 Baumé and
the price for that sugar content ag-
reed after consultations at a later date.

Representing the distilleries were
Mr. Newton Shillingford, Mr. E.
Nassief, Mr.« Fitz Shillingford and
Mr. Edward (A.C.) Shiliingford.
The Cane Farmers secticn of the
DTU were represented by Mr.
Philip Bob, Chairman, Mr. Roy
Laronde, Secretary and Messrs
Norry Vidal and Edward Sampson.

Interunien Struggle In B.G.

The end is not yet in sight in the
violent struggle between the two
unions representing the sugar work-

ers of British Guiana. The CCL
affiliated Manpower Citizens

Association is being challenged by
the Jaganites who have formed the
British Guiana Sugar Producers’
Union. The latter have started
wildcat strikes all over the sugar





belt, with great violence and many
casuzlties, in an endeavour to show

that their union has the loyalty of fact

than the MPCA which 1s presently
recogn:zea as the bargaining agent
with the employers.

Wesiey Village
Gouncil Storm

Mr. Fred A. Colberg Herry
who had been acting Secretary to
the Wesley Village Council handed
al! documents and _ staticneries of
the Council to the Chairman te-
cently. Hecontends that Mr.
Christian, Social Welfare Officer,
came to an irrelevant conclusion
(when he drove his car up to Wes-
ley on 12th March 1964) in settling
a dispute caused bya resclution
drawn up. by. she Chairman Mr.

: imselé.

“Thatthe Council. in its infancy
could not do without a permanent
or stabled Secretary” seeing that
Mrs, V. Robin, Seczetary of the
Council, had accepted the post of
Head Mistress of the Belles Govern-
ment School.

Mrs. Christian accused the
Chairman and Mr. Henry of hav-
ing taken tne wrong procedure—to
which they agreed to a certain ex-
tent. Mr, Henry said that “Mr.
Christian in addressing the council
to the effect, exhibited some late
rared psychological stunts and thus
persuaded some of the members of
the council to sice with him and
more so to oppose the resolution to
which the entire council s:rangly
agreed three weeks ago.” Mr.
Henry openly accused the council
of bias and threate sed to resign.
He went on to say that had it not
been for the bias of the Councillors,
Mr. Christian would not have over-
ruled the resolution.

He also accused Mr. Christian for
not having used his discretion-—see-
ing that the Council 1s about to
undertake road _constructien etc the
Chairman-Secretary quorum will
occur most often — then the Mrs.
Robir’s resignation, to the Council
as Secretary, was pot necessarily a
matter which should be based on
rules and regulations but on mutual
understanding.

When Mr. Christian was asked
‘who will do the segretarial worle
of the Council during’ the Secre-
tary’s absence since the Assistant
Secretary has refused to do it?” He
replied “anyone at any metting in
which the Secretary is absent can be
nominated to do the Secretarial
work”,

Mr. Henry is strongly opposed to



DOMINICA



this and so also is the chairman for
they both are conscious of the
that the members of
the Council cannot do the Secre-
tarial work.

This now leaves the council in a
stormy and rettering position. Mr.
Henry said that Mr., Christian’s
attitudes were not good and that
everything showed glaring preference
on behalf of the secretary but who
will do her work? Then has the
council a, secretary?

He concluded “I will remain on
the council until my time is ended
to see if Mr. Christian will rot
accept the resolution’ THAT THE
COUNCIL IN ITS INFANCY CANNOT
DO WITHOUT A STABLED OR PER’
MANENT SECRETARY.”

Dominica At Her Best
- Queen Mother Ashore Twice

Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother was so enchanted
by her swift glimpse of Dominica at midday on Sunday
that she took a trip up to Pont Cassée in the late afternoon.

After a number of broadcast statements that it was
not known whether Her Majesty would be coming ashere,
and warning everyone to stand by their radios for news at
1.0 pm, in actuality the Queen Mother stepped ashore on
the Roscau jetty 2t axactly 12.30 p.m. on Sunday.

Persons up Federation Drive had a magnificent view
of the Britrania steaming into Woodbridge Bay at around
11.30, and soon after this H. H. The Administrator Col,
Alec Lovelace and Mrs Lovelace went on board.

Met Ministers

When Her Maiesty stepped ashere an hour later, three
cheets were raised by the Canadian Teacher Trainer group,
she met Ministers Stevens and Didier, and cameras were
active all around. Looking considerably Jess than her 62
years the Queen Mother went straight into the waiting car
and was driven off for a quick run past the Court House,
through the Gardens, round the parking space of the new
Grammar School, thence ug the steep St. Aroment Hill
and down to the P. M. Hospital where the entourage
paused for a brief minute before going down to Govern
ment House.

“At G. H there: were intreductions to Mr. Jus:ice St.
Bernard, The Right Rev. Arnold Boghaert, Bishop of
‘Roseau, and other notables. Exactly seventy minutes later,
Het:Majesty was again aboard the Royal Barge heading for
the Royal Yacht Brittania. Col. and Mrs. Lovelace accom-
panied terfor lunch on board.

!

~ The:Queen Mother looked charming in a_ white

-bowffon frock and typical Hartnell-designed white-feathered.

hat. Her two ladies-in-waiting wore similar hats.
Trip To Pont Gassee
~ Fler afternoon trip started j cK
consisted of a tour in peerless weather up the Layou Park
Road to the Administrators Cottage down the Castle
Bruce Read and back via the twisting Imperial Road as
dusk fell. Her Majesty's ttip was blessed with blue skies,
cloudless views of the mountains and a magnificent sunset
(we hope she saw the wonderful emerald drop). She did
not leave the jetty to return to the Britania until after 8.00
but a magnificant half-moon illuminated everything and we
can surely say that Dominica offered her the best of her
beauty. - H.M. received presents of grapefruit, limes and a
grass mat.. » ee
Dominicans from the Nerth saw the Royal Yacht in
the morning when she steamed slowly through Prince
Rupert’s Bay on her way South to Roseau.

Blackburn Thrash St. Joseph

T# Blackburn. vs St. Josegh en-
counter last weekend at the
Botanical Gardens was almost a ones
sided affair. Winning the toss
Blackburn amassed 214 runs in just
over 24 hrs against bowling which
never looked very penetrative. Ron-
ald Osborne topped the batting con-
tributions with a well played 49, in
an innings which showed plenty
character and good timing, Einstein
Shillingford and Eddison Toseph got
37 apiece and the middle and lower
order batsmen gave worthy support
with timely contributions to the effect
that the batting side never looked in
sericzs trouble.

Clayton R, Shillingford varied
pace and spin exiremely cleverly to
finish with a full bag of 7 for 72.
St. Joseph went in to bat about 45
mitutes before close of play and the
openers settled very ricely. But that
was while Nesty was erratic. As
soon as be found a length they were
in serious trouble. A parade of
batsmen in and out of the pavilion

had fallen for a palery 4i runs. On

General Kisses Headmistress

It was at the Girls High School
that he received the most charming
ovation by some Gooo pupils from
all over Martimque (the High
School has 1800 students), After
Kissing the Heacmis:ress, Mlle Nar-
dal, he spoke ac length to the
massed you.h groups aout Martin-
ique’s future: “We shall go forward
«wif you wish! The future of the
entire country comes from the cha-
racter of the French cusemble nationale
.all.the doors are open, but the fu-
tuze depends on you, the youth of

petite Mme. Valére, wife of France ...”° And chen, atftee his

the gallant leader of the Op-
position, wore a Grecian-
style gown. of heavy white
satin with black flowers in
her hair and delicate black
slippers. On !/londay the
Navy was host, with recept-
ions aboard the Jeanne d’ Arc
and at the Officers’ Club.

hal tour by the great hero-

France Prestigieux

Two of the most revealing
appearances of the General
were reserved for his last day,
Monday, when he entered
the new housing settlement
of five-floor flats called Briant
and saw a banner waving:
“We wantto stay French”.
Thousands of tiny school-
children greeted him with a
song. In his speeches the
General referred constantly to
the fact that France had
never been so prestigieux (a
difficult word to translate),
he also stressed the word

“ensemble” when speaking of

the forward progress of the

earnest words, he led the young
people in singing the. Marseillaise,
but his voice (sL.gttiy off key) was
soon drowned by the most magni-
ficient singing of their national an-
them that anyone in Martinique had
ever heard. It was gcodbye to a
great hero, an Olympian: after Ma-
dame de Gaulle (dressed in dotted
gtey with plumey hat and pearls) had
been extricated from her admirers,
the cavalcade drove straight to the
airport. De Gaulle carried away
with him a gift book of poems
written by Dr Daniel. Lhaly of
Dominican Martinique origin.

eatDing in che |

It was a far cry from the
“religious rios” in Domin-
ica of October 18th 1847 !!
Speaking on his two Ecu-
menical Council visits to
Rome in. 1962 and 1963,
Bishop Boghaert said “Christ
himself wants the re-un:on
of all Christians and it is up
to us to work to that end”.

Despite the rain, a consi
derable crowd of Protestants

attended the meeting which

was opened by the singing of
the hymn “Christ from
whom all blessings flow”

Boak, followed by a ptayer
by Canon Lane.

Letter From John Wesley

Bishop Boghaert referred
at the start of his address to
a letter written to the then
Pope by the founder of the
Methodist C h u rch, Rev.
John Wesley, pleading reli-
gicustolerance. “The
whole world,” said the Bis-
hop of Reseau, “has been
following the deliberations of
the Ecumenical Council pre-
sided over by Pope John
XXII and later Pope Paul
VI’. He referred to the
twenty Ecumenical Councils
held previously and gave
many statistics of the num-
ber of prelates attending this
last Council, including 76
non-Catholics. His talk
was illustrated with slides,
some of which portrayed the
strangely bearded and garbed
patriarchs of branches of the
Christian Church, such as
the Ethiopian, Greek and
Russian Orthodex Churches.

“The Individual Soul’

The distinguished speaker touched
on various aspects of the 70 items
on the agenda ofthe last Couacil,
particularly on changes in the litur-
gy and the optional use of the vern-
acular (local language) instead of
Latin for those parts of the service in

“30 THEY SAY” --

BY BOR & RAY

1 Sonera

Did you ever notice the salesmen who visit Roseau in July selling
Christmas toys, cloth, bells and bows to the merchonts? Fully six months
ahead of the actua! season. Well, right now the Dominica Citrus As-
sociation should be out with a plan to sell cheit oranges and gtapefcuit. ,.
-even though they won’t actually have fruit to ship until late August or
September. . It will be too late to find the buyers when its packing time
and the lament will go out once more: “'Oh, I wish I could sell my
oranges . .. its such 3 pity they must rot when they arc such delicious
oranges and the whoie world loves nice juicy oranges... ”

Is there a man-with-a-plan to market the 50,c00 boxes of the
world’s best grapefruit ... and $,o00° boxes of better-than-average
oranges? Or is the real trouble in the old-fashioned idea that since we
have superior fruit the buyers will “beat a pathto our door”... don’t
we realize that old adage abour a “better mouse trap” is the buak in
1964? And are we so utterly naivé that we believe a shipping concern
that will carry our fruit to England is also going to go out of their way
to get us fair prices once the fruit is landed. Do the schooners that carry
our copra to Barbados fight,for a higher price for us after they get it there?
Does L. Rose & Co, rely on the Harrison Line to sell their lime juice

~ once they have transported it overseas for then? Ofcourse not!

We aré no different than the thousands of other businesses ‘and the
one thing needed ‘today for a successful. operation is MARKETING
AND SALES. | If the boys who catch the ‘ti Ton off Scotts Head
just bring the fisn ashore, the people weuld not have ’ti Ton! It takes
a small army of fish mongers to carry the catch to the people and this is
ordinary marketing and selling! But the market for our excellent grape-
fruit is thousands of miles away ,. , wé can’t afford to send our able local

THE President of the Anv

Union and Chief Minister
of the country, Mr. V. C.
Bird, visited Martinique.
He also said that other Minis-

ters of his Government shall .

be visiting that country since

“the people of the West In-

dies are one.” He said that
on his visit to the country he
met French investors who are
willing to invest in Antigua

but who wanted to know if —

the Government would wel-
come French: investors. Mr.
Bird said that he assured
them that French investors
will be given the same sup-
port and opportunities. as are
extended to investors of other
nationalities. Mr. Bird re-
minded the people of Anti-
gua that whatever the coun
try has achieved in terms of

economic and social develop :

ment was due to the support
and guidanee of the Trade
Union Movement otf the
country. _The people as a

ment which has done so

~TROPIGAL FRANCE

My Gop, my Gop, how French you
are!”? — those were the first words
spoken by Geaeral de Gaulle, President of

the French Republic, to a Martiniquan .

crowd last Sunday: a For: de France
~ crowd nearly as large.as the total popula
tion of Dominica. ;

_ There are many Dominicans who have

climbed aboard the gcod ship Colombie in
the dark of night to visit France, often
inspired by deep interest and curiosity; they
number far more than those who, at one-
tenth the cost and about one-fiftieth of
travel time (inclusive of the long drive to
out airport) have aerially cressed the sap
phire Caribbean and touched down ina
tropical France next door where the cli-
mate, the scenery and the countenances of
the population would make any one of us
feel completely at home.

This editorial is not a tourist brochure.
It is simply-a note of wonder that we: sis-

“ter islands “are so aloof “feat” eachother — _have_we not been

True, we Dominicans have a little com-
merce with northern Guadeloupe, but
hardly any informative or cultural links
with either of our French-speaking neigh
bours. This is quite fantastic in a
modern age when the cry is “oné world.”
Recently, however, a few things have
happened to break the ridiculous isolation.
One is the strengthening of the Caribbean
Organisation, which encompasses all the
main regional language groups. Another
is the mutual interest of both British and
French territories in technical developments
in agriculture. A third, and in the long
run the mast important, is the increasing’
ly cordial attitude of the very young (both
French and British nationals) towards each
other. If youth was given more oppor-
tunity to become acquainted, ties of under-
standing and exchange of ideas would
rapidly develop. The Martinique Girl
Guides who greeted Lady Baden Powell
at Lamantin airport seemed every bit as
affectionate towards her as the Girl Guides
of Dominica. It was not by hazard that
General de Gaulle made his longest and
best touring speech to a massed gathering

of youngsters at the Girls’ High School
in Martunique.

Some of us may say, “yes, but going
to Martinique wouldn’t be a change! t
is too near”. That is a fallacy! The
change is so definite:— from the taste of
food and drink to. the sound of words -—
that is sometimes a shock to look around
and see the same coconut fronds waving,
the same hibiscus and alam nda, the same
bananas shooting. For the world of
Martinique is a troptcai French world,
as even the autonomists would admit.
C.L. R. James once said in a Port-of-
Spain library “I will always be pro-
British, because the English language 1s an
indispensable part of. myself.” It is in-
escapable, the How of words like the fow

VIGTORY FOR PRESS FREEDOM

Washington, March 11—
A victory for rhe rights of a
free press. .

This is how the New
York Times describes the de-
cision of the U.S. Supreme
Court Monday reversing a
$500,000 libel judgement
against the paper and four
Negro ministers.

The case arose from an
aavertisement placed in the
Times on March 29, 1960.
The advertisement. sought to
raise funds for civil rights
causes atid attacked condi
tions as they affected race re-
lations in parts cf the South.
A Montgomery, Alabama
oficial, claiming he had been
defamed; was awarded $500,
coo by an Alabama jury.

The Supreme Court
ruling held in effect that a
public official cznnot recover
libel damaged for ctiticisms
of his conduct of public
business unless he proves that
the criticisms were made with
deliberate malice.

By this ruling even a false
statement. about. public offi-
cials would be prctected, un-
less made with acjual malice.
Certain details of the Times
advertisemeat, were conceded
The court decision said
that unlimited libel awards
in cases where public ofkcials
are Criticized would enganger
the freedom to comment on
official conduct, protected by
free speech and itee press
provisions of the U.S. Con-
titution.

No Survival

Said Justice Brennan, de-
livering the court’s cpinion,
“the pall of fear and umidity
imposed upon those who
would give voice to public
criticism is an atmosphere in
which the first amendment
freedoms cannot survive.”

“Tt is an increasingly im-
portant function of the
press’, the Times said
editorially yesterday, “to en-
courage the free give-andiake
of ideas and, above all, to be
free to express criticism of
public officials and public
policies. This is all part of
the life-blood of a democracy.

Necessary Freedom

The WASHINGTON STAR:

“For the first time the
court has held that the first

“This is a freedom which
the court holds to be recess’
ay to full and uninhibited
discussion and debate of
public affairs. But it is also

a freedom, especially in the

case of the press, which murt
be exercised with much. care
and restraint.”

The Chicago Tribune,
which also filed a brief in
behalf of the New York
Times, called the court’s
action “another milestone in
the long fight for freedom of
the press and freedom of
speech.”

“The effect of the deci-
sion,” the Times said, “‘is to
reaficm. the ccnstitutional
rig-it of every citizen to cri-
ticize government and other
officials of government.”-—

Voltaire Replaces
Richelieu

By Darsie Gillie, Manchester Guard-
ian (Britain)

with Voltaire replacing: Richelieu,
is at last in circulation. It isa

Bamkof Fr

tations in putting the subversive

‘mocker in such a place,

That the Bank of France portrays
public men more convincingly than
poets or pamphleteers is the least
that can be said, but we already
knew that from the comfortably
dull, bourgeois Racine that has
replaced the gay, smuling Henry [V

only look forward with trepidation
tothe Corneille that will replace
the brilliant young Bonaparte on
the roo-franc note in a few month’s

Voltaire, in a red jacket and with
a-quill pen in his hand, seems to
be doing his best to reassure pious

But hold the note up to the light

Proposals. put forward by both
the Technical, Cle ica) and Com-

Dominica Trade Union, for the for-
mation of a Trade Union Congress
in Deminica have been temporarily
shelved. One reason is that the
D.T.U. feel that their energies should
be spent more on an organisaticnal

the TCCWU would not accept
afiliation with the CCL

Cane Farmers Confer ~
With Distillers

A week ago the DTU executive
and the Gane Farmers Association
met representatives of the five rum
distilleries of Belfast, Macouchcrie,
Canefield, Checkhall and Bagatelle
in an effort to agree upon a fixed
and equitable method of pay nent for
their product. Different conversions
to estimate the sugar content are used
by the different distilleries.

After a cordial discussion, with
Labour Commisstoner Bruney in the
chair, it was agreed basically thet juice
would be estimated on a basis ot the
syrup at 2 figure ef 40 Baumé and
the price for that sugar content ag-
reed after consultations at a later date.

Representing the distilleries were
Mr. Newton Shillingford, Mr. E.
Nassief, Mr.« Fitz Shillingford and
Mr. Edward (A.C.) Shiliingford.
The Cane Farmers secticn of the
DTU were represented by Mr.
Philip Bob, Chairman, Mr. Roy

The end is not yet in sight in the
violent struggle between the two
unions representing the sugar work-

ers of British Guiana. The CCL

Association is being challenged by
the Jaganites who have formed the
British Guiana Sugar Producers’
Union. The latter have started
wildcat strikes all over the sugar





belt, with great violence and many
casuzlties, in an endeavour to show

that their union has the loyalty of fact

Wesiey Village
Gouncil Storm

Mr. Fred A. Colberg Herry
who had been acting Secretary to
the Wesley Village Council handed
al! documents and _ staticneries of
the Council to the Chairman te-
cently. Hecontends that Mr.
Christian, Social Welfare Officer,
came to an irrelevant conclusion
(when he drove his car up to Wes-
ley on 12th March 1964) in settling
a dispute caused bya resclution
drawn up. by. she Chairman Mr.

: imselé.

“Thatthe Council. in its infancy
could not do without a permanent
or stabled Secretary” seeing that
Mrs, V. Robin, Seczetary of the
Council, had accepted the post of
Head Mistress of the Belles Govern-
ment School.

Mrs. Christian accused the
Chairman and Mr. Henry of hav-
ing taken tne wrong procedure—to
which they agreed to a certain ex-
tent. Mr, Henry said that “Mr.
Christian in addressing the council
to the effect, exhibited some late
rared psychological stunts and thus
persuaded some of the members of
the council to sice with him and
more so to oppose the resolution to
which the entire council s:rangly
agreed three weeks ago.” Mr.
Henry openly accused the council
of bias and threate sed to resign.
He went on to say that had it not
been for the bias of the Councillors,
Mr. Christian would not have over-
ruled the resolution.

He also accused Mr. Christian for
not having used his discretion-—see-
ing that the Council 1s about to
undertake road _constructien etc the
Chairman-Secretary quorum will
occur most often — then the Mrs.
Robir’s resignation, to the Council
as Secretary, was pot necessarily a
matter which should be based on
rules and regulations but on mutual
understanding.

When Mr. Christian was asked
‘who will do the segretarial worle
of the Council during’ the Secre-
tary’s absence since the Assistant
Secretary has refused to do it?” He
replied “anyone at any metting in
which the Secretary is absent can be
nominated to do the Secretarial
work”,

Mr. Henry is strongly opposed to



DOMINICA



this and so also is the chairman for
they both are conscious of the
that the members of
the Council cannot do the Secre-
tarial work.

This now leaves the council in a
stormy and rettering position. Mr.
Henry said that Mr., Christian’s
attitudes were not good and that
everything showed glaring preference
on behalf of the secretary but who
will do her work? Then has the
council a, secretary?

He concluded “I will remain on
the council until my time is ended
to see if Mr. Christian will rot
accept the resolution’ THAT THE
COUNCIL IN ITS INFANCY CANNOT
DO WITHOUT A STABLED OR PER’
MANENT SECRETARY.”

Dominica At Her Best
- Queen Mother Ashore Twice

Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother was so enchanted
by her swift glimpse of Dominica at midday on Sunday
that she took a trip up to Pont Cassée in the late afternoon.

After a number of broadcast statements that it was
not known whether Her Majesty would be coming ashere,
and warning everyone to stand by their radios for news at
1.0 pm, in actuality the Queen Mother stepped ashore on
the Roscau jetty 2t axactly 12.30 p.m. on Sunday.

Persons up Federation Drive had a magnificent view
of the Britrania steaming into Woodbridge Bay at around
11.30, and soon after this H. H. The Administrator Col,
Alec Lovelace and Mrs Lovelace went on board.

Met Ministers

When Her Maiesty stepped ashere an hour later, three
cheets were raised by the Canadian Teacher Trainer group,
she met Ministers Stevens and Didier, and cameras were
active all around. Looking considerably Jess than her 62
years the Queen Mother went straight into the waiting car
and was driven off for a quick run past the Court House,
through the Gardens, round the parking space of the new
Grammar School, thence ug the steep St. Aroment Hill
and down to the P. M. Hospital where the entourage
paused for a brief minute before going down to Govern
ment House.

“At G. H there: were intreductions to Mr. Jus:ice St.
Bernard, The Right Rev. Arnold Boghaert, Bishop of
‘Roseau, and other notables. Exactly seventy minutes later,
Het:Majesty was again aboard the Royal Barge heading for
the Royal Yacht Brittania. Col. and Mrs. Lovelace accom-
panied terfor lunch on board.

!

~ The:Queen Mother looked charming in a_ white

-bowffon frock and typical Hartnell-designed white-feathered.

hat. Her two ladies-in-waiting wore similar hats.
Trip To Pont Gassee
~ Fler afternoon trip started j cK
consisted of a tour in peerless weather up the Layou Park
Road to the Administrators Cottage down the Castle
Bruce Read and back via the twisting Imperial Road as
dusk fell. Her Majesty's ttip was blessed with blue skies,
cloudless views of the mountains and a magnificent sunset
(we hope she saw the wonderful emerald drop). She did
not leave the jetty to return to the Britania until after 8.00
but a magnificant half-moon illuminated everything and we
can surely say that Dominica offered her the best of her
beauty. - H.M. received presents of grapefruit, limes and a
grass mat.. » ee
Dominicans from the Nerth saw the Royal Yacht in
the morning when she steamed slowly through Prince
Rupert’s Bay on her way South to Roseau.

LOGAL SPORTLIGHT

Blackburn Thrash St. Joseph

T# Blackburn. vs St. Josegh en-
counter last weekend at the
Botanical Gardens was almost a ones
sided affair. Winning the toss
Blackburn amassed 214 runs in just
over 24 hrs against bowling which
never looked very penetrative. Ron-
ald Osborne topped the batting con-
tributions with a well played 49, in
an innings which showed plenty
character and good timing, Einstein
Shillingford and Eddison Toseph got
37 apiece and the middle and lower
order batsmen gave worthy support
with timely contributions to the effect
that the batting side never looked in
sericzs trouble.

Clayton R, Shillingford varied
pace and spin exiremely cleverly to
finish with a full bag of 7 for 72.
St. Joseph went in to bat about 45
mitutes before close of play and the
openers settled very ricely. But that
was while Nesty was erratic. As
soon as be found a length they were
in serious trouble. A parade of
batsmen in and out of the pavilion
ensued and by 6 o'clock 8 wickets
had fallen for a palery 4i runs. On
resumption. Clayton Shillingford
thumped Nesty for 17 in an over
and brightened up things consiaera-
bly, but avas caught and bowled the
next over for a'godd 28 and thelside
was all out for 86.

Asked to follow on, St, Joseph
did tittle better in the second inn-
ings, totalling 95 of which Ravalier
made.an undefeated 36. Clem John
and Einstein Shillingford shared the

Frank Worrell’s Visit

THE celebrated West Indian
cricketer Sir Frank Worrell wall visit

light of bis stay ‘will be a benefit
match engaging two local sides with
Sir Frank playing on one of these
sides. This match takes place at
the Botanical Gardens on Monday
and Tuesday afternoon from 1.30 p.m
It is rumoured that Conrad Hunte,
Vice-Captain to Worrell on the re-
cent West Indies tour of England
may be here around that time also in
which case we would be extremely
fortunate to see both of these world-
wide cricketing figures in action.

This is atime for the selectors to
survey the best talent in the island
and select the two .trongest and well
balanced teams that-can -be found in
these quarters and put our talent on
display.. {¢ is hoped that very large
crowds fromthe country and Roseau
will be in attendance. The funds
are in aid of building. a University
Centre for Dominica. and there will
be a raffle of a cricket bat personally
autogzaphed by Sir Frank.

French nation, and told the
young people, “France is
pledged to doa lot for her
children, but she expects
them to do someth ing for her
as well.”

General Kisses Headmistress

It was at the Girls High School
that he received the most charming
ovation by some Gooo pupils from
all over Martimque (the High
School has 1800 students), After
Kissing the Heacmis:ress, Mlle Nar-
dal, he spoke ac length to the
massed you.h groups aout Martin-
ique’s future: “We shall go forward
«wif you wish! The future of the
entire country comes from the cha-
racter of the French cusemble nationale
.all.the doors are open, but the fu-
tuze depends on you, the youth of

petite Mme. Valére, wife of France ...”° And chen, atftee his

the gallant leader of the Op-
position, wore a Grecian-
style gown. of heavy white
satin with black flowers in
her hair and delicate black
slippers. On !/londay the
Navy was host, with recept-
ions aboard the Jeanne d’ Arc
and at the Officers’ Club.

No account of this triump-
hal tour by the great hero-
politician would be com-
plete without mention cf the
Prefect (M. Raphael Petit)’s
kindness and of Professor
Pierre Lucette’s role in help-
ing a Dominican visitor of no
official importance to go
everywhere in record time,
and see everything desired.
Lucette, who is now in
Puerto Rico seeing his tela-
tiveindaw Mr. C. F.
Beauregard preparatory to a
tour of St. Kitts, Antigua
and Dominica, acted at
Press photographer for the
Dominica HERALD and also
for the Advocate: some
ofhis photographs will be
published by us later. An
account of the Editor’s recep
tion by the Caribbean
Friends Club and meeting
with Mr. Oliver Norris must
also be deferred for space
reasons.

France Prestigieux

Two of the most revealing
appearances of the General
were reserved for his last day,
Monday, when he entered
the new housing settlement
of five-floor flats called Briant
and saw a banner waving:
“We wantto stay French”.
Thousands of tiny school-
children greeted him with a
song. In his speeches the
General referred constantly to
the fact that France had
never been so prestigieux (a
difficult word to translate),
he also stressed the word

“ensemble” when speaking of

the forward progress of the

earnest words, he led the young
people in singing the. Marseillaise,
but his voice (sL.gttiy off key) was
soon drowned by the most magni-
ficient singing of their national an-
them that anyone in Martinique had
ever heard. It was gcodbye to a
great hero, an Olympian: after Ma-
dame de Gaulle (dressed in dotted
gtey with plumey hat and pearls) had
been extricated from her admirers,
the cavalcade drove straight to the
airport. De Gaulle carried away
with him a gift book of poems
written by Dr Daniel. Lhaly of
Dominican Martinique origin.
