grounds that be refused to speak on party platforms and
intends to stand as a candidate (with or without Party
support) at the next election. An amendment to the ex-
pulsion motion that he be asked to resign was rejected.

Founder Member
Loblack, a lifelong Social,
ist, was a founder member
and past President of the
Dominica Trade Union as
well as a founder member of
the Domin'ca Lalour Party.
His political career has been
chequered with st o r m y
episodes. ,, We are informed
that he s ill has the legal right

puts present vonng strength
in the House as seven Labour
plus oe nominated, one
nominated independent and
four D.U.P.P.: other raem-
bers are the Attorney General
and the Speaker.
Loblack's Statement
Mr. Loblack told us that
he had never declined to
speak on a Labour Party
platform. He added that
two weeks ago he learned
that the other nominated
member Mr. Arnold Active
had disclosed at a club in
Federation drive t h a t he
(Loblack) would be pushed
out of the Party so that the
Labour Party could come
to terms with the opposition
weighted T r a d e Union.
Mr. Loblack went on:
"Since the Chief Minister
had declared to the executive
that he v would net be going
back to contest R o s e a u
South, I informed the
Labour Party that I would
contest the Roseau South seat
either by agreement as one of
their candidates or inde,
Loblack said the Chief
Minister would not agree to
stand for that seat because he
was not sure to win there,
and intended becoming a
candidate for his home con,
stituency in the North, dis,

placing his cousin John
Royer, present member.
Loblack also made the state,
ment "I will not stand with
anybody who has no use for
Englishmen." This apparent/
ly referred to rce discrimina/
tion within the Labour Party
It will be recalled that on
March 17 Mr. Loblack pro,
'moted a. Social Security
rlriU.sue e I. 1,ne-riouse and
his then colleagues of the
Labour Party abstained from
voting. The resolution was
passed with Opposition sup,
Bousquet For C. M.?
Meanwhile in St. Lucia
political upheavals of an even
more shaking nature have
taken pla:e: the earlier polli
tical merger of the two
opposition Parties was follow-
ed (on the same day as
Loblack's expulsion) by the
resignation of two Ministers
Alan Bousquet, Minister
of Labour and Social Affairs,
and Joseph M.D. ("Evans")
Bousquet, recently m a d e
Minister without Portfolio,
who vias decorated for meri,
torious services in the British
merchant navy during World
War II. Although one
radio report says that J.M.D.
Bousquet (a lifelong Socialist)
intends to remain secretary of
the Labour Party, another
news flash informs us that
five members of the St. Lucia
* opposition in Leg. Co. have
declared their willingness to
accept Mr. J.M.D. Bousquet

Labour's Steady
A new dimension introduced
into i3rtish politics since the war
has been the Public Opinion Polls.
Now, a government is elated or des-
ponde.ias its popularity rises o:
falls. In h. t.vo ro'ls conducted here,
the National Opinion Poll and the
Gallup Poll,. Neither of these two
organizations question more than
5,ooo voters at a time (the British
electorate numbers nearly 30 mill-
ion), but their techniques are so
sophisticated, that few- doubt' that
their samplee" adequately reflects the
views of the voters. What, then,
do the polls say?
Both have held consistently for
six months and more that the La-
bour Party has an average lead over
the Conservatives of 7%. In all
straight public opinion polls, all-
owance must be made for the "was-
tage" of Labour votes in the highly
populated u -r ba n constituencies
(British parliamentary areas represent
roughly 6o,oo voters, but, in order
to obtain a meaningful community,
arithmetic is modified, and some
MPs represent a few hundreds or
thousands more or. less; Conserva-
tives have more rural areas, where
the population is smaller, on the
average, because of the importance
of not: having too large an area,
while Labour "'suffers". On-the
other hand,'the Labour MP usually
can get roa..i4s constituency-more
a g cin
mind this boils down to a Labo:in
lead of about 5% at-the present
moment, and this, after allowing
for some changes between now and
PdollingDay, is very likely to give
the Labour Party a lead of some 50
seats in the House of Commons.
Even Conservative commentators
and newspapers (lke the 'Sunday
Times") hold that the Government
has little chance, Is the Adminis-
tration, headed by a doomed Prime
Minister, about to plunge into the
depths? Well, the officers are still
trying to keep the ship, afloat, as
they consider there is still a chance
of reaching land. The policy of
the Cabinet and Sir Alec is like
that of the sailing captains of old:
spread sail in order to catch every
breath of wind. The Government
development plans still tumble from
the presses the latest is a compre-
hensive one for the whole South.
East of England. New legislation
to compensate the victims of crimes
of violence is promised. There was
the strange visit to Nigeria of the
Premier, and the promise of a July
meeting of Commonwealth Premiers.
Life must be seen to be in the
Above all measures to prove that
the Government is up and doing is
the retail Price Maintenance Bill.
This is an attempt by the Secretary
of State for Industry, Mr. Heath,
to make illegal the practice current
in Britain at the moment, by which
a manufacturer fixes the price at
which his product may be sold. The
controversy is a complex one, which
it is.not necessary to go into here.
significant thing for us is that
the CBCryative leadership saw the

stituencies against them. They did
not approve of the risk. And, to
save iteir seats (they thought) many
rebelled, and refused to vote for the
propisi.. The Parlismentary party
are increasingly showing their nerv-
ous strain. Back-benchers are in-
creasingly speaking with an eye "for
the record" so that in the campaign
to come, they can disassociate them-
selves from any Government policy
that they consider might tip the
scale against themselves.
But while the Back-benchers jit-
ter, there is a chance that the elect.-
ion may yet be delivered into Sir
Alec's hands. For, in spite of fran-
tic Labour appeals, the workers in
the Electric Power Stations have de-
cided on a "go slow" to support
their demands for a shorter working
week (already one of the shortest
in the country). This will proba-
bly mean power cuts, and great in-
convenience to the public. The
people may blame the Labour Party,
with its strong Trade Union con-
nections. This may not be entirely
just, and indeed, the TUC has
done its best to persuade the Power
Station workers not to resort to di-
rect action. But, when the electric
trains do not run, the television
picture fades, and the dinner spoils,
Mr. Wilson may be blamed, and
his party's lead may dim with the
electric light.

Exceptional D. T. U. Conference

"Join In Crossing Barries" Dyce
"The trade union movement is a necessity in every
community . It seeks to help people from the bottom
up . We nust all join in crossing barriers, and prevent
the Dominica Trade Union from disintegration: this Union
has been saved by people who don't even know Domin,
ica -- that's the sort of unity we are tying to build up,
comrades all!" said Mr. Osmond Dyce, General Secretary
of the Caribbean Congress of Labour, in a balanced and
penetrating address at the Nineteenth Annual Conference
of Delegates of the D.T. U. on Easter Sunday.
Chaired by Mr. John Larondc, retiring President, the
first guest speaker at the Conference was Hen. W. S.
Stevens, Minister of Labour and Social Services, who
started by speaking of the Easter message and of petty
jealousies and strife which bedevil human progress in the
community. He then made three ministerial announce,
ments, first mentioning Sir Frank Worrell's visit in con,
neetion with the appeal fund and the hope of a University
Centre based in Dominica; next of a scheme to cover all
non-established workers in Government employ which
would "protect the workers from arbitrary dismissal".
The 4ooth anniversary of Shakespeare's birth was another
of Mr. Stevens' topics: he drew listeners' attention to the
forthcoming drama and music festival. After congratulat,
ing the people of Dominica on their good welcome of the
Queen Mother, Mr. Stevens said he would not be surprised
if H. M. Queen Elizabeth II turned up herself one of these
days. He then gave a narration of the history of trade
unionism, its inception by the medieval crafts guilds, the
part played by the Methodist movement, the recognition of
trade Unions in Britain in 1824--5, through' to T..U,.
development in the West Indies and the Moyne Commi/,

Stevens On Trade Union History
Mr. Stevenis told the audience how the British trade
unions, weak without a political force, produced the La,
bour Party the "voic- of the worker." "Woe unto him
if he allows himself to be deceived by Parties pledged to
protect vested interests!" he added, giving all the credit for
social/industrial legislation in Great Britain to trade
unionism and the Labour Party but omitting the part
played by the earlier Liberals and the Beveridge plan. He

got applause when he appealed for intelligent t r a d e
unionists in Dominica -- "not the type of trade uriopists
who will be swept off their feet by politicians like myself!"
Mr. Laronde then read a letter from His Honour Col.
Lovelace stating that he regretted his inability to atrend
the opening session of conference because at that time he
would be attending service in his Church. In point of
fact the Administrator attended divine service some two
hours earlier. Mr. underlined the trade union's
need for intellectuals in its ranks, appealing to intelligent
men and women to join.
A long message of greeting from the St. Lucia Gn,
eral Workers Union was read by Mr. R.P. Joseph, Gen.
Secretary of D.T.U., followed by others from the Barbados
Workers Union and the Grenada Trades Union Council.
Next guest speaker was Mr. Claude Bruney. Labour Conm,
missioncr, who gave a fairly long but interesting talk. He
displayed the book "Essence of Trade Unionism" by Vic-
tor Feather of the British T.U.C. which Mr. Stevens had
earlier recommended, adding his commendation. Speak-
ing of the "Two forces employers and labour -"
Mr. Bruney said they ought to be two forces of equal
strength in order to counteract each other. That would be
the ideal position for both powerful sides to be equal, so
that neither would like to offend the other. Dominica, he
said. had a lot of work ahead before reaching that situa,
"Somebody Is Not Thinking" Bruney
"A Trade Union's primary objective is the maintain,
ance of proper living standards for its members and vork,
ers," said Mr. Bruney, adding, "public opinion is the
strongest force that we are very likely to have for trade
unions or anybody else." He gave branch officers sound
advice on the conduct of their'affairs, saying that he would
add to his remarks at a future date. The attitude of em-

ness, and protocol may be rega-ded
as the stiff right branch of the same
flowering tree. When the sap or milk of
human kindness dries up or is bled off by
crude negation, the blossoms of reciprocal
grace wilt, and even the strong righc arm
becomes merely a stark excrescence.
Public men have a special responsibility
in this matter, but they learn slowly that
all their actions or inactions are subject to
We were dismayed to learn that not
only the Mayor of Roeau but the Reve-
rend Canon of the Anglican Church in
Dominica had not been paid the courtesy
due to them of an invitation to meet
H. M. the Queen Mother during her all,
too-short stay in this island.
.The Mayor is the head of a municipal
corporation and has, so to speak, the keys
of the city. The Canon is the local bead
of the Church of which the Queen
'Mother a voted member. Why then
were they ignored? Those loving people
who specially cleaned and decorated St.
George'sChurch, Roseau, for such a
notable Palm Sunday -- the Church of
an island congregation and of Merrie
England must have felt discouraged to
learn that Queen Elizabeth the Queen
Mother made her devotions in other territo,
rial Churches of their faith, but neither
met their Rector nor was guided to enter
their humble but beautiful place of wor,
As to His Worship the Mayor, although
we personally have suffered in the past
from his own verbal discourtesies, we
distinctly feel that, like the Canon, it was
his right and due to have been presented.
After all, the Royal Lady's foot first
touched land in his bailiwick.


It is no earthly use for those i' authority
to complain about the im erfections of
our youth when they themselves set such
a bad example. The habit of unkind,
ness of unfeelingness, as a regional trade
unionist has named it -- is most depress,
ing when it emanates from above.
Let us give a different example. A
short while ago (we are convincingly
informed) on another bright Sunday, a
poor peasant woman looked out from the
dwelhng which she and her husband had
painstakingly built within their garden in
the Parish of St. David since 1946, the
year when they applied for possession of
crown lands, and during which they paid
the sum of eight pounds four shillings and
sixpence for surveyor's fees etc. Imagine
her surprise when she saw an executive
member of the ruling Labour Party plant,
ing coconuts behind the,,shade of her
bananas! We are told that other Labour

this woman, giving her to understand that
it was their right to cultivate that land: on
the following day, a civil serve t visited
the site. In the whole stretch of the road
from Pond Cassee to Castle Bruce, why
should these people encroach upon ground
which two poor souls had carefully cleared
and planted? Are there not other crown
lands available? Even if those peasants,
who can neither read nor write, had not
been assisted to complete all title formally
ties, is such action either just, kind or
judicial? Is it not more typical of a
fendal squirearchy?
We leave it to the general public to
estimate from these and other experiences
how much kindness, courtesy, and proper
execution of protocol is now vested in
oficialdom in the island of Dominica.

"is It Nothing
To You?"

Dear Editor,
Reading in the Guardian
of a planned Carnival Show to aid
the Mental 2-.ome in Trinidad I am
inspired to write to your readers to
ask if they could not do more to
help our mental patients in Domini-
ca! We are fortunate in having on-
ly a handtil of these poor people in
our Mental Home, but that does not
make it less incumbent for us to
do moe for them.
For the last 6 months I have been
helping them to sew on two after-
noons a week, the.r own skirts,
blouses and dresses with material
kindly given by some shops at
Cnristmast:me. 1 he Mental Asso-
ciation has now provided me with
some funds to continue this work,
as the free gift has come to an end.
Unfortunately I shal. soon be Lwving
for a 3 month's holiday in Europe,
and I am wondering who will con,
tinue to visit those people. I do not
think it is the actual teaching of
sewing which is helping, but the
fact that someone from outside is in-
terested in them and is befriending
them, getting to know them indivi-
dually. There ace othir things which
you could do ifyou cared sufficiently.
i5..;_ aliWiw ^ mi wuji-
one to da some community singing
with them. Many of them have
good voices and would enjoy a
singsong. There was a promise that
someone would start someone would
start some handwork with them, but
this seems to have fallen through.
Could not some interested persons
with a projector occasionally give
a film show at the H o m e
I am sure there are other ways in
which you could help if you cared
sufficiently. I can assure you that
these people are not violent or
frightening, they are just temporarily
sick. You will also get every assis,
stance from the nurses in charge a
very valiant little band, who would
also get much deserved

habit of thrift which marked
out the significance of the
Credit Unions. The Banks
had been forced to change
their policies and give credit
on easier terms because of the
existence of credit unions.
It was expressed through that
it was a pity if the Credit
Unions made the Commer/
cial banks tneir banker since
the funds would still be
chanelled outside. The Co,
operative Bank too had from
its inception shown readiness
to accept the mere pittance
of the small man and build a
saving out of it. It adopted
a more liberal policy than
Barclays and Royal in giving
local credit.
During the discussion it
was pointed out that it must

A surprisingly large percentage of Dominicans are interested in
furthering their education in study courses by mail. David wants to
study welding and writes to the school in England for literature. The
school sends his letter to their representative in Trinidad. David event,
ually sends a postal money order to the Trinidad agent.. .and never hears
from it again. Charles wants to study accounting. Writes to a school
in Canada for particulars. Eventually he sends a postal money order to
the school in Montreal. Then, Charles cannot get his visa to go to
Caiada... writes the school to please return his money. They refuse.
John likes radio repair and decides to take a study course by mail from
a school in the States. He sends his money for the lessons and they never
Aside from dampening the enthusiasm of these young men to try and
better themselves, this (so far at least) has turned out to be an outranl'out
fraud. What recourse has a hardworking young man in Dominica,got
to get his money back from these places, that for one reason or another
neither send the lessons nor refund the monies paid?
The three cases named above are real people living in Dominica.
There must be dozens of others. And there muse be dozens more who
are actually in the process now of sending for litrature on mal-order
education courses or thinking seriously about it. Should there be some
way made so that these aspiring Dominicans can get their lessons and at
the same time be safeguarded that they will uot be swindled out of their
On: very good way to do it might bAo establish an office under
the Minister of Labour and Social Services in which a study-by-mail
scheme is organized. If a boy or girl wishes to take a mail-order course
in welding, for example, he or she goes ;o this office and tells the clerk the
name of the school in which they are interested. Or, if he does not
know the name of a school that teaches welding, then he may visit this
special office operated by Government where there are lists of"approved"
schools... those that the Governmer.t has written to and have received
clearances from impartal sources such as the Better Business Bureau in
America, the Boa-d of Trade in E-gland, and so forth.
The application, then, could be made in the usual way by the pros,
pective student, but again, via this Government office. It is felt that no
school abroad is going to make-up in dealing with a Government-placed
application. The turn, sends his completed lessons back to
the school via the Government office once mote.. and gets his next as-
sigdment or lesson back via the Government office. __
t ,: iS:never need be made must, ie, that one would be "breaking a
law" to contact a school direct and to 'deal with it directly thereafter. It
only a hbiods:those'iizens on bDominic4 a safe way to take applied edu-
cation coursess while at the same'itime having a "go-between" ar "moral-
force" between the student and his school. This will give the student
impetus to, continue studying (although he is not bound to, of course).
It'will also give Government the names ofthose people on the island who
have taken special courses which will serve as a handy reference for em-
ployment. Should, for example. a man be qualified as a refrigeration
specialist and someone is very desirous of hiring such a man, all that
needs to be done is to contact this Govesnment office and inquire if they
know of a man who can repair refrigerators. Yes, they have his name.
So what we developed now? A special Government office that acts
as (I) a clearing house for qualified schools, (2) a place where the citizens
can get this information, free (3) assistance with the application (4) a
liason between the student and the school (5) an employment agency!
Dominicans ship enough of their money overseas for food and
clothing via the local merchants. It seems a shame that they must also
send their money abroad for education -- and often times in vain -
while this quest for knowledge is really man's greatest resource. So
they say.

Sprinting Technique

AI URAL ability is essential if a
sprinter is to make good but in
a world'of high standards and strong
competition it is not enough; he
must, no matter how talented, train
hard and perfect his technique.
The spinter's speed depends upon
two basic factors (a) stride length and
(b) rate of striding. The sprintMr must
no! try to overstride or understride to
quicken his striding rate as this
makes a natural action become un-
natural. To lengthen the stride with-
out slowing down the striding rate
he must develop greater muscular
strength and increase the joint mobi-
lity of the legs. Both of these factors
vary according to the individual's

extension of the hip, knee and ankle
of the driving leg, The other, the
recovery leg, is speedily p u 1le d

The arm action is important too
as (a) it helps to balance the run-
ner and (b) it sets the pace for the
legs. The arms are well bent at the
elbows and are carried high and the
main movement is forwards a n d
backwards rather than across the
body. Timing between arms and
legs does not have to be learnt-it
is done naturally: a reflex action.
The shoulders should be square to
the front. /
Ifthe athlete fixes his eyes on a

Casuals Bow To Spartans
Spartans enjoyed a relatively easy victory over lowly Casuals at the
Botanical Gardens last weekend. Robinson called correctly and elected
to bat on moisture-laden wicket. Two hours later the Casuals side was
back in the pavilion having totalled 81, Austrie getting 24 of those, and
Alwyn Shillirgford 4 for II to top the Spartan bowling figures.
Spartans replied with 349 for 6 wkts, due primarily to a scruitllating
174 by star Winward Island batsman Irving Shillingford, Robinson lab-
oured bravely for 3 for 85. From the rime of declaration the result was
almost a foregone conclusion, for the Casualites were already psychologi-
cally defeated. They fell for 59.

Sir Frank Worrell To Play Here
The two teams which will engage in a benefit cricket match at the
Botanical Gardens, as highlight of Sir Frank Worrell's visit to the island
have been selected. They are:
1. O. Lewis Capt. (Empire) i. E. Robinson (Casuals)
2. H. Elwin (Empire) 2. C. Williams (S.M.A,)
3. Shillingford (Spartan) 3. F. Grell (S.M.A.)
4. C. John (Blackburn) 4. E. Charles (Spartan)
5. C. Larocque (Combermere) 5. E. Shillingford (B..burn) Capt.
5. A. Grego:re (Combermere) 6. J. Corriette (Spartan)
7. E. Jno Baptiste (Spartan) 7. R. Osborne (Blackburn)
8. J. Pierre (Police) 8. F. Thomas (Warwicks)
9. P. Simon (Combermere) 9. G. Nicholls (Spartan)
1o. St Hiliare (Combermere) o1. J. Celaire (D.G.S.).)
i1. H. Williams (S.M.A.) i. C. Doctrove (D.G.S
12. K. Laurent (S.M.A.)
Sir Frank Worrell will bat for both sides. He will allo bowl and
field for both sides. This will ensure that spectators get a full chance to
see him perform. This, if haudled properly, shouldn't prove as tiring tc
our visitor as many suspect.
Two two local sides are not evenly balanced. On the one hand
"there is last year's island team which is probably too sttorg especially in
batting for the opposing teem However we think that the selectors know
what thbt, ar looking for from this encounter.

S' Change Of Date
Worrell will not arrive on Sunday 5th as was formerly publicised
but on Tuesday 7th and the two cricket match will now take place on
Wednesday and Thursday 8-9th instant. Large crowds are expected to
attend the match which commences at 1.30 o'clock each afternoon.

Clubs engaged in cricket and foot-
ball with Blackburn winning the
former, whilst a draw was the inde-
cisive result of the latter.
The cricket match was particul,
arly interesting since the visitors had
been beaten on the two former oc-
casiont that the two met. Blackburn
won the toss and batted on a good
firm wicket and looked all set for a
large total but succumbed to the cle-
ver spin of J. Tittle who took 6 for
55. Clem McIntyre 40, Joey Cools-
Lartigue 38 and Ronald Osborne 23
enabled the Blackburnites to reach
138. The host team replied with
130 of which Payne mastered 38,
and particular mention must be made
of the bowling of Clem John who
bagged 7 for 30.
A sporting decoration at 124 for

Shillingford gave the Antiguans a
chance to make a match of it. Set

These are the tangible results of the
tour, but there are many more as-
pects from which the tour was a suc-
cess. The games were played in a
very friendly s p i r i t reflecting fair
competition and sportsmanship, and
very good relations existed through-
out. The Blackburn Club looks for-
ward to repaying the courtesy.
Two football matches were played
this week, both at the grounds of the
