Mrs. Claude Bruney at

"Youth needs guidance

have in fifteen or 25 years'

ward is the world head and
Hunte a voluntary a rea
leader), "after which it will
be re-presented to them in a
clarified form, and they will
translate iz into action." Mr.
Hunte said that MRA had
no barriers of sectaria nism or
class or colour: people of all
kinds and of all free coun.

international force for human
advancement, with the guid-

Clean Food
By Alec Forrest
Diry food means trouble. Trouble, often painfu
and dangerous, for all who eat it. A nd it should mear
trouble of another kind for those who make or sell it
Housewives and others who buy food, need to be protected
against those who prepare food without proper care, and
those who "doctor" it for their own profit.
In Britain, an important official in every locality is the
public heakh inspector. His job is to inspect all places
where food is sold or prepared, and make certain that pro.
per standards are observed. If not, he must take action
When we all trouble ourselves about clean food and
insist on good standards, there is much less chance of dirt
food entering our homes. After all, what is the point o
paying cut money, our own earnings, to be poisoned o
made ill?

in the 200,year old Court
House which newly received
barrister Mr. Victor Clement
Josse described as antedating
the French Revolution and
worthy of replacement, a
ceremonial which has both
verbally exciting and full of
affectionate cordiality took
place last Friday morning.
Substituting as Senior mem,
ber of the Bar for the Attor-
ney General (who was una,
ble to be present), Mr. R.H.
Lockhart put the motion for
Mr. Josse's admittance, prais,
ing his new colleague's ex,
emplary career bPrh in the
local civil service and in Fe,
deal employment, saying
there must be room at the top
for a man of such zeal,
energy and enterprise.
Seconding t he moon,
Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny,
who with his two barrister
daughters brought the total
oflawyers in private practice
present up to seven (plus
Magistrate Coplanad, who
also sat. robed at the legal
table), described the period
during 1943 45 when there
was only o n e practising
lawyer in Dominica (himself)
'and new we are ten'. He
hoped the economy of the
country would make room
at the top worth while for
his excellent new colleague,
whose qualities he (like the
mover) both enumerated and
Mr. Justice St. Bernard,
officially welcoming Mr. Josse
to the Supreme Court of the
Leeward an d Windward
Islands (Dominica) Circuit,
said that it gave him great
pleasure to join with the
mover and seconder of the
motion ia their congratula,
tory remarks about Mr.
Josse's distinguished career.
The profession of Law had
a code of honour, requiring
of its members not only to be
competent, but demanding
the highest probity of them
and a tworfold duty-first a
duty towards the Court, and
next a duty towards the client.
"Don't look on the profes,
sion," he told the new bar,
rister, "merely as one of gain,
but help to maintain the
structure of law in your comr,
munity." "As to room at
the top," His Lordship said,
"The cream always rises".
Mr. Jo'se then made his
maiden address at the Bar
and in modest but confident
tones la ter described as
"statesmanlike eloquence"

spoke not only of his legal
future but of other wider
matters: Saying that he was
"deeply conscious of the hon,
our which had been con-
ferred upon him" he pledged
himself "with zestful dedica,
tLon to give devoted service
to the wellbeing of the Court
and of the public good."
Mr. Lockhart, he raid, had
spoken of his attributes ini
the civil and federal services:
but then he had been part of
a team, and his contribution
to is effors was made possible
by the help and cooperation
of those dear friends with
whom he had worked. Mr.
Josse also paid tribute to three
barristers of the past who had
set a good pattern ard had
been a source of inspiration
-Shand, Harris and Rawle
-and mentioned the fascia,-
ating factor of chance in
every man's life, upon which
so much depended. He
hoped that although not a
youth he had nature experi,
ence and qualities which
would help him 'take the
current when it serves'-
Speaking of certain fun,
daminta li bertes, Mrf. Jose
said that the Press was enti,
tied to any honest comment
on matters of public interest.

Complaint From The Save The
Pichelin Children Fund

Impure Water Supply
THE people of Pichelin want to
know: is our village included
in the island-\,ide WHO water and
sanitation plan, or is it not? They
are seriously wcried atout the con,
tamination of their water supply by
seepage from latrines and toilet refuse,
since villagers have to pass over the
source of drinking water supply to
dump their refuse, and occaFionally
it spills on the way.
Well-known shopkeeper of the
lovely village of Pcl elia in South,
ern Dominica, Mr. L. Desabaye,
was civic-minded enough to head a
petition to Government since 26th
January 1962, in the following
"We the humble ir.h'bi:ants of the
village of Pichelin in the Grand Bay
area have been suffering for a very
long time for the lack of a pipertorne
water supply, the need of which is
very urgent, as many cases of typhoid
fever and other intestial! diseases due
to impure water have occurred recently
and in the past.
" e'W have made repeated applica-
tions drawing the attention of the
authorities to our unfortunate condi-
tion but satisfistory steps have not
been taken to remedy the situation.
We should therefore be very grateful
if you would gi"c our apple cation for
a pipe-borne water supply a favour-
able consideration as soon as
In reply Mr. Desabaye ultimately
received a letter fom the Actitg
Principal Sertarnyrv tn the Minister of
Communications and Works, which
stated that "Supplies of pipeborne
water... A survey has been made
and also estimates of costs, but it is
regretted that Government is unable
at present to accede to this request,
as no funds are available for such a
project. The matter is to be kept
under constant review".
The inhabitants of Pichelin are
not satisfied with their present situa-
tion, as they feel that their drinking
water is in constant d a n g er of

Massacre Songwriter
Mr. Cletus Hilton of Massacre,
known as "the Wonderman"' has
just published two original songs
with music nnder the imprint of
Nordyke Songs & Music Publish-
ing Co. of Sunset Boulevard,
Hollywood. Calif. They are en-
titled "She's 8ot a feeling" and
"Dont play with the fellow's love".
A U.S. release !t.tes that Cletus
Hilton is a brilliant songwriter
whose published works are now
being distributed.
Mr. Hilton told us: "I've always
been interested in writing songs. I
sent two of my poems to the Music
City Songcrafters; these were consi-
dered magnificent. After receiving
a few lead sheets and four demen,
station records, I forwarded them
to Nordyke's, and they have been
published. Success depends on the
warmest interest and on strong
support by the public. Therefore I
call on all musicians, instrument
players and "pops" to visit Mr.
Casimir for music sheets with words
and printed music.
Instead of writing the songs and
making mistakes, gec the songs to,
gether with the music, you pops!"

This is ?n Organisation
founded in 1919 in England
by Eglantyne Jebb primarily
for the purpose of assisting
the needy children in that
country. Its activities were
eventually extended to take
care of similar prevailing
conditions of need in other
parts of the world. Her

The Save The Children
Fund is being established
throughout the Windward
Islands by Miss Monica
Green as the West Indies
Representative stationed in
St. Vincent.
During the month cf
October, 1963, M'ss Green
visited Dominica with a
view to starting the Organi-
sation here, and appointed
Mrs. Lorna Robinson Su,
ptrvisor for Dominica. Ir,
December the Committee to
advise and assist in the plans
for this Island was appointed
by the Hon. Minister for
Labour & Social Services.
The following are members
of the Committe:--

,President; Mrs, Celia Fedelle,
Secretary; Rev?. Canon
Lane; Revd. Sister Hilde,
brand; Mrs. Phyllis Didier;
Miss D. Harrison; Mr. L.
A. J. Simon; Mrs. Lorna
Robinscn, Supervisor.
The work being under-
taken at present in Dominica
is the distribution of Soya-
mcal to children of 6 months
to 3 years who are suffering
from malnutrition. T h i s
Soyameal is the product of
whole Soya Bean which has
been fully processed and
ready for use without further
cocking. It may be added
to Milk, Tea, Soups, Por/
ridge, etc., in ord-r to increase
the protein intake of children.
On advice of the Medical
Department weekly distribu/
tion of Soyameal was started
in the villages of Good Hope,
San Sauveur and Petite Sou-
frnere, they being the ones
with the highest malnutrition
rates on the island. The
villages of Scotts Head,
Soufriere, Massacre and
Mahaut have since been
included. A trial period of
three months in the villages
on the Eastern Coast revealed
remarkable improvement of
the children. Mothers have
been fairly regular in bring-
ing or sending their children
for weighing and receiving

of the meal. There has been
striking improvement in the
general conditions of the
children. T he disappear-
ance of sores, the improve,
meant in the texture of their
skin and their srtcky eyes are
very noticeable. This Dis-
trict has proved a good one
to demonstrate the good that
a small regular quantity of
protein given over a period
can do to the general improve-
mr.t of the children.
The meal is received here
in bags of 45 lfs; these bags
are opened weekly as required
and weighed into I 1b plastic
containers freeof/charge
by Astaphans SuperMarket,
to whom we owe a debt of
gratitude for this free service
to the IsL nd.
Worn clothing has also
been received and is at pre,

most needy areas by members
of the Commitree.
To date One Ton or 70
Bags have been distributed
in the areas abovementionec.

has been received and on the
advice of the Medical De-
partment distribution will
