Currency And Shipping
THE two first matters deliberated and decided by the Re,
gional Council of Ministers meeting at Sherbourne,
Barbados this week were (a) a new currency unit the
Eastern Caribbean dollar (b) continuation of the West
Indian Shipping Service for another two years.

The East Caribbean dol
lar will continue to have a
fixed parity of four shillings
and twopence to the pound
and the headquarters of the
Currency Boa-d will be Bar,

necessary because Trinidad
and B.G. are no longer on
the original Board. The
new Board will comprise

Lessons Of Our

Dear Madam, Reading
your second Editorial in the
HERALD of Saturday the
I:ta, my thoughts went back
to the "Awakening" of
Dominica from the stupor of
Crown Rule to face the first
gleam of the light of political
consciousness. This was in
1919, when the demand fo:
fulfillment of promise cf "self-
determination" made during
World War I was sweeping
the West Indies. At that
time the "Entente Cordiale"
of BritishFrench treaty of
alliance still held meaning to
peoples of both countries.

even economic relations had
a strong supporter in Mr.
Mahaffy, then Administrator
of Dominica. Unfortunate,

The point I wish to regis/
ter is that no small amount
of the fault for our economic
backwardness and under,
development in 1964 is
directly attributable to the
lack of continuity of policy
in Government as well as in
private enterprise.
I will beg a public super/

me to take a few examples to

WE all knew that a few girls in our island choose their
husbands in funny or casual ways. This tale will
describe how a beautiful girl r.amed Gloria who lives in
Johnson Street in the village of Cress. She was an
attractive, charming young girl; her eyebrows were heavily
accented, jet-black. She was so beautiful that she was
loved by many boys of the village but she interested in
only six boys. These were Motley, Harold, Joseph. Mat,
thew, Kenrick and Justin. They were all handsome boys
and Gloria had the same quantity of affection for each.
Those boys were always in some sort of trouble or the
other, and that's the thing Gloria did not like. She was
trying hard to remedy this confusion.
One night while resting, her head became confused
in imagination and her thoughts were focused on those
handsome-looking lads. Suddenly she jumped up and sat
on the bed, whispering in a low expressionless voice "it's
only one boy I can love, it's time that I remedy such con,
fusion, I am not going to rell anyone what I am about. I
am going to make the whole six write to me, put them in
a hag and draw." She continued saying, "I wonder who
will be the lucky winner. It's a pity that I don't love one
more than the other. Time will put that right." Then
she let her head fall back silently on her pillow.
The following day she went about the village looking
for those lads. She first met Matthew with a shopping
bag, on his way to Rosma shop. Gloria called him; he
walked towards her with a smile on his face, wondering
what tat beautiful girl was going to tell him. At last he
reached her. Gloria said to him quietly, "Matthew Do
you love me/?" He replied "I really love you, Gloria."
"If SO, please write to me bei-ause Ta lonv sVi t no" said

Gloria. Matthew wasted no time,- forgetting everything
about shopping, he ran back home, collected his equipment
and started writing busily.

Gloria met the others privately and told them the
same, and they did more or less the same thing as Matthew.
Poor boys They were unconscious of her plan, and each
one had confidence that he would win her affection. They
beautified their writings with love quotations such as the

"If love was a flower sprinkled with dew,
I would certainly pick it and send it to you,
But love is so precious and quick to depart,
I would rather you the love of my heart."

Now they all started carrying their letters to her home.
On the way, Joseph saw Harold walking quickly a few
yards before him. He shouted cc him, "Old man, where
are you going to ?/ Why are you so busy ?" "That's
none of your business, I go where I want," repFed Harold.
Joseph gritted his teeth. While in this tense emotional
feeling, he heard some footsteps behind him like a Citroen
at full speed, leaving an impression of "Ha/a.ay man'! "
This person was surely Matthew Harold was the first
boy to reach Gloria's home; he handed his letter to her,
whispering low, "please write back as soon as possible, I
will be patiently waiting." He turned back bravely and
started walking to his home. On the way there he met
Matthew, who waved his hand to him; in reply Harold
bent his head on the right shoulder. As soon as Matthew
passed he murmured "What's wrong 2 What's that about?
This feller seems as if he is on the same route with me."
He ground his teeth with grief and scratched his head with
anger. Justin, Motley and Kenrick clashed some yards
away from Gloria's home, all considering what was going
wrong. Matthew made several attempts to turn back but
could not do it. They all went in and handed in their
letters. Meanwhile Gloria started singing her own calypsos
in a sweet voice:

"They all handing in their application -
They will be surely put into consideration -
Who will be the lucky winner
Youi application may be top !
I wonder who will be ihe runnerup "
Not a word came from any of their lips. Poor Harold
patiently waited, then turned away.
At five Gloria decided to draw the lucky letter. She
put all of then in a nice-bag, shook the bag horizontally,
the i dipped her hand into it and drew. Who do you
believe was the lucky winner ? Joseph! She opened the
letter aa, started reading. She shouted "Joseph the great!"
She dipped her hand in cnce more and drew. She open,
ed and read, ejaculating "Justin the runner/up! He
might receive words of sympathy.. So she started singing:
Joseph my dearest,
I will forget the others and make you the greatest;
What about the applications .
I owe them no consolations,
Joseph, when you learn your luck you will be happy--
But poor Justin just words of sympathy."
When Justin received words of sympathy, he smashed
she letter into nothing. As for Joseph, when he received
his sweet reply, he jumped up rejoicing; but he still had
small idea of what had taken place.
This story indicates the idiocy of some men as well as
the tricksy nature of s-omse girls.-


One month from today, on May
S8th, we will have a Holiday. It
is called Whit Monday. There
will be celebrating aplently on Sun,
day prior to this Holiday... never-
theless, we will not work on Mon-.
day, May i8th. But if ships come

of Dominica will pay for this added
expense as the cost of it must be
.tacked onto the food they buy, the
clothes they wear, the machinery
they use or whatever was imported
to the Colony on May i8th.
C ne week after Whit Monday
holiday, we will have another
"shut-down" Holiday. This one
is called Commonwealth Day. If it
was made to fall always on a Sun-
day, a nonwork day, well and
good. But this will be another
Monday when offices, shops, banks
and schools will he closed. And
those employees will undoubtedly
get paid for the full day albeit they
did no work whatsoever! And if
a ship arrives... doubletime on the
jetty once again,
Exactly two weeks later, again
falling on a Monday, June i8th we
will celebrate Queen's Birthday.
The same things will happen to the
admittedly poor state of Dominica's
economy once more. People will
be paid for not working. Double,
time on the jetty should a boat be
in. Road repair ceases (but the
torrential rains do not!). Lives-
stock, pigs, goats, fowls. etc. will be
forgotten until Tuesday morning.
The usual Holiday excursions will
replace the truck-load of goods and
supplies normally grinding over the
roads on a work-a-day Monday.
In the 21 days from May 18th
to June 8th, there will be exactly
14- days of work for the majority
of Dominicans. We will be non-
productive nearly one third of that
period of rime. Is it any wonder
tle cost of living on Dominica is
high. But this must be the way
most people want it as if they did

not, they would do something to
change it.
To quote a recent visitor from
Canada: "Dominicans must be
very rich. Only the wealthy can
afford to waste so much ime. I've
been here six days already and what

Svi a~tiumpisneda i couuia ao in a

body seems to realize the clock is

ed this nonsense a hundred years
We informed the fellow that the
people he intends to occupy those
proposed new homes out at Mero

would have to get accustomed to
the four-o'clock closing since it is a
very old law and Government is
obliged to enforce it. Hard-work-
ing merchants like A.A. Baron
fought against the four-o'clock cios*
ing years and years ago and we
believe his oni and successor would
like to see the ban lifed also.
Dominica, we learn, is locked in a
vise from progressing in many ways
by old, obsolete laws.
Most of these laws are easy to re-
write or repeal entirely. All one
need do is consult Mr Alleyenc,
Q.C, as he spent many, many
months both here and in England,
all-expenses paid to and from and
on salary too, paid by taxpayers to
read and classify these ancient, out,
moded bits of legal red tape. He
could tell you how o!d these laws
are. . many of them passed on to
the books in the days of sailing
ships and never changed since.
Like the Real Estate Laws, for ex-
ample, that were written 52 years
ago iln the U.K. They have
modernied their own real estate
laws in England many times since
then... but the Colony ofDomin-
ica still operates under the only
1912 Laws.
More important than building a
new feeder road (and a whole lot
easier too) is the revamping, re/ex-
amining, yes, and the scrapping of
countless Ordinances and Laws that
literally are binding the islands
commerce to the pace cf a square,
rigged ship.' More important than
trying to get the U.N. to please
drop a pile of cash for this or that
improvement, is the job Dominicar.s
can do themselves, for themselves -

NEXT to English translations of the
Bible, it may be claimed that the
plays and poems of William Shakespeare
are the most widely-read works in the
English language in all the world. Small

acclamation and esteem, everywhere in the
British Commonwealth and doubtless
also in countries where Shakespeare is

Everything Stops
For Worrell
Sir Frank's Other
Tracing the earliest
attempts to provide a national
institute of learning from the
times of Christopher Cod,
rington and Bishop Berkeley,
Sir Frank reminded his audi-
ence that the British Govern,
ment had first donated 2 I
million and the Jamaica
Government 650 acres of
land for the founding of
U.W.I., which now had a
staff of 300 recruited from T5
different countries, serving all
the Units.

In reply to another ques,
tion, W o r r e 11 said that
although certain areas of the
West Indies had become
independent, they found it
possible to cooperate respon,
sibly on an economic level,
and in io-IS years (polite
means from the young) they
could still get together. He
hoped a federation of cricket
would continue to show re/
gional leaders the wa y.
Pressed about the formation
of a "truly West Indian
team" Sir Frank included in
his reply a decision of the
W. I. Cricket Board to

Leeviards as such into inter,
territorial matches and de,

D. U, P. P. At Newtonw And

Newtown Mostly Ole Talk

Rain f-ll during the D. U. P. P. meeting at New-
town on Atril 3rd, but for all that there were many listeners
in the highroad and many cars lined up to shelter other
more comfortable hearers. Regrettably, we missed the sole
lady speaker and came in during the middle ofthe Mayor's
oration. Aside fiom some interesting remarks made by
Mr. Lestrade on the relativity of time, and a well received
line by.Mr. F. A. Baron on unemployment as well as his
use of the -.otd "Khakocracy" to describe our preser.t
rulers, there v-as little that was fresh and arresting in the
discourses. It was indeed, mostly Ole talk and old com,'
plaints. All of it, however, was new to two visitors from
4)iartinique who braved the drips to have their first expe/
rience of listening to politics in Dcminica. They were
particularly interested in modes of speech and delivery.

Soufriere Convention

According to our Southern political reporter, the
D. U. P. P. Convention held last Sunday spent most of its
open session lambsting the Government in every aspect of
policy, particularly on education, feeder roads, and local
water supply to schools etc. Local Leg. Co, member
Hon. Arthur Ptmbertcn spoke, as well as the Patty's Polil
ticalleader, Mr. F. A. Baron, Hon E. B. Henry, Mayor
S. Lestrade. Mr Alvin Arm.inrading and others. Nota,
ble absentees were Hon. H. D. Shillngford and Hon.
Frobel Laville. A closed session took place after lunch.
Newly elected by the annual convention i are the follow-
:ng D. U. P. P. Oficers:- Mr. R. H. Lockhart, Presi-

would, no doubt, become
eligible for international
cricket. He went on "In
'highly industrialized areas the
cricketing standard has fallen;
people have not the time to

Georgetown, for example ..."
Asked for advice on con-
trolling a team, he replied
that there should not be a
hierarchy; the Captain must
be willing, able and keen to
do what all other members of
his team did." He thought
that Test cricketers had be-
come increasingly aware of
this and were less individual,
listically ambitious. "'Wher
you win, you win for the
team, but when you lose you
leave the ground alone.'

Sir Frank, after he had parried
a query as to whether he had

Aftera few more ques/

peed by a point 3 to 4 strides be,
are the board. The distance of the L
approach varies with the individual
but is between Ioo and 140 feet.
Find ng the starting point of the run,
up is largely a matterr of trial and
rror but it can be done as follows:
he athlete first finds out what dist.-
nce his approach should be then he
tands on, the take off (T.O.) board
and starting with his T.O. foot he
prints that distance away from the
p;t. A second person marks the
point where the runup should start. (1
The jumper then sprints to the board
fror the mark made by his helper
and if his stride is consistent he will
hit the board; if not. he must mark
out his run aga.n; this run-up must
be practised frequently and regularly
o that the athlete can bit the board
every time. The run-up begins with
he same foot each time and if check
marks are used it is advisable to hit
hem v.ith the T.O. foot.
COAST: Top speed has been
-eached 3 to 4 strides before the
board aad the jumper ceases to ac,
celerate. He coasts these last strides
and gathers himself for the jump.
The trunk become, uptight, neck,
shoulders and arms all telak and the
hips sink slightly. Ti-is relaxation
in pieparation fo, the spring is essen-
tial for a good jump.
:TAKE OFF:-- T-he last stride be,
fore T.O. is short and on the T.O.
itself the jumping foot hits the board
well in.advance of the body. The
jumper must spring high in the air.
MID AIR ACTION:- There are
three mid 'ir actions.
a. Sail Jump:- After T.O. the
athlete lifts his legs high out in
front of him in an extended posi-
tion: the postrion in'which he
hopes to land. This method is
seldom used by first class jumpers
;s it is very difficult to counteract
the natural forward rotation
which brings the feet to the ground
too early.
b. Hang:- Continental athletes use
this method. After a hrgh T.O.
the non-jumping leg is left to
trail behind the body with the
T.O. leg. The trunk is extended
and the arms held high above the
head as though in a hanging po-
sition. The head too is held
high. All this counteracts for,
ward rotation. Before landing
the legs are brought swiftly for,
ward and extended horizontally,
the trunk still being as erect as
possible and the arms still held
up and back. On landing the
arms are brought forward to assist
the trunk over the fulcrum of the
c. With British and American athle-
tes the HITCHKICK action is more
popular, the jumper employing
Iy or 21 strides in the air. This
is the easiest method to master.
At T.O. the -ight leg (assuming
it was a left leg T.O ) is brought
to a hip-level whilst the other
trails behind. Then at the highest
point ofthe flight path, the right

leg swings back straightening at
the knee and strongly reaching
out behind the body. The left leg
at the same time bends and come-.
forward so that in fact the leg
position has been reversed. On
landing the right leg is brought
forward, bent, to join the left leg
in an extended and horizontal
position. This comply. tes a 1.i-
strides hitch-kick, but some
jumpers prefer a 2 stride. The
jumper must decide which is best
for him.
ANDING: -- As the heels tear the
pit the trunk should be upright
to eliminate forward rotation and
the resulting premature landing,
The legs should be as extended
as possible to obtain maximum
distance. The arms are held
back prior to landing to keep the
trunk vertical and then, on land-
ing, they are thrown forward to
bring the jumper onto his feet.
Next week:- Training for Long Jump.)

New Blood For Our CattleP
By Alec Forrest
Good beef orcduction cannot be achieved anywhere
without sound planning. And, as one essential, farmers
must know what breeds of cattle will do best on their grass
or natural "bush" grazing land.
It is easy for those with rich pastures to choose animals
to give good beef and raise numbers of healthy calves, but
much more difficult in tropical and subtropical country ,
where grass is poor or patchy, water supplies often lacking,
and there is an ever present danger of disease and tick worry.
The cattle normally bred in the area are the farmer's
best guide for future development. If these are sound and
able to resist diseases, then he should use them as the basis
for his improvement schemes.

A Jamaica Red cow and calf from a breed now
being raised widely in the West Indies.-
..- Successful CrossBreeds
Even so, new blood is necessary. And, though
cross-breeding with animals of European stock may not
always'produce an animal superior to those of local origin,
some fine results have been gained. Farmers in The West
Indies are well pleased'with the Jamaica Hope, developed
from the Brisish Red Poll.
Other points must be watched. Improvement of the
nutritional value of grasses, for example. When this is
done, animals, crossbred or not, can really show their merits!
Equally important is it to fight diseases and treat areas
infected by ticks,
Again, water supplies. If they cannot drink protvcril
very few cattle will put on good beef. And farmers should
realise that cattle are a "crop" to be harvested at regular
intervals, the shorter better!
However, given good natural conditions, it is solnd
policy to look for new strains, .nd perhaps take ad-vaniage
of A. I. (Artificial Insemination) to introduce semen from
selected bulls of European stock.
The Milk Marketing Board of England and Wales
has recently exported semen of beef breeds to several coun,
tries. Sturdy new breeds can thus be developed in remote
areas, where it is difficult as well as costly to bring in live
cattle from other lands. (BIS)

Improving Island

U.N. Assistance Wanted
Practical steps are being taken on
a coordinated balis to Ls:ablzsh in
the '-astern Caribbean a main tele-
communications trunk route system
-from Trinidad to the U. S. Virg:n
Islands and Puerto Rico. and from
there to the outside world. This
emerged from the three.-day telecom-
munications meeting sponsored by
the Caribbean Organiztion which
concluded in San Juan on Tuesday.
This was the first confrontation
of governments and private telecom-
munications agencies operating in
the Caribbean, and in a full discus,
sion held in an atmosphere of cor-
dial cooperation concerning present
and project services, representatives
outhned their plans for improving
telegraph and telephone services and
for linking the area with the outside
world. Tae general pattern today
is one of uneven development with
up-todate services in certain areas
and unsatisfactory facilities in others.
An important result of the meet,
ing was the resolution recommend-
ing that governments of the countries
served by the Caribbean Organiza-
tion, which deem. it necessary,
should request the United Nations
for technical assistance for the Inter,
national Telecommunication Union,
to plan, the improvement of their
internal telephone'services, develop
Additional feeder systems, and to
train their local personnel as a
necessary complement to the main
thiak route being established.
Fr-:' Lthe me' tr mr rgl t
by theend 'of 1965, a main. tele

communication trunk route of tro-
pospleric scatter systems will have
been established.
This will be of vital importance
to the Caribbean countries in their
:ffor.s to improve ard cxpand their
:iade an) tourism industries.
The governments represented at
the meeting Were France, Nether',
lands Antilles, Antigua, Monr errat,
St. K i t t s-'Ntvs,Anguilla, ,St. t,

while the telecommunication agen-
cies included International Telecom-

Advice To Parents
Of Primary School
Children In Dominica

T shall be the duty, of the parents
of every child oi compulsory
school age to cause him to receive
flicient full time education -suitble
o his age, ability and aptitude by
regular attendance at school.
The term "compuiscry school
ge" means any age between five
and fifteen years, and accordingly
a child shall be deemed to be of
compulsory school age if he has at'
tainted the age cf five years and Las
not yet attained the age of fifteen.
It has become a great concern to all
of us to see so many healthy child,
ren of this age loitering all about the
place creating mischief especially in
Roseau. Children should he at
school during' school ours and they
should have limited recreation and
liberty under the supervision of par,
ents or guardians.
Parents should bSar in mind that
education is the stepping stone to a
prosperous goal in the world today.
I therefore, appeal to all parents and
well-wishers of primary school child,
ren to consider the importance of
regularity at school and its bearing
upon good education.-
In order to encourage good atten,
dance at school, when parents are not
at fault, I wquld strongly advise closer
co-operation with teachers, parents,
and child. Proper Christ-an homes
with good training generally produce
best efficiency at school which, later,

"Self reverence, selfknowledge,
These three alone lead life to

Too often, parents are guilty of a
laisscz-aire attitude towards their
chi dozen, wlicil in itself creates in the
minds cf these children a s(nse of
negligence and irres-orsibility on
their part.

Parents must correct and le'dd
children to use their own initiative to
solve their problems, yet, they must
not be brutalized in their efforts or
made to feel inferior, as they will
be unhappy and such children will
shun you and hcme.
There is a stagee in the life of a
chill when certain sentiments are
being formed, and these in turn be-
come habits which form his charac,
ter. This adolescence stage is the
most critical stoge in the life of a
child. At this time, the child is
more desirous of doing the natural
things around him. He adheres to
his environmental factoss whether
good or bad. On entering this
stage of adolescence, parents must
be extremely careful about their own
habits and behaviour, especially at
home, as children are apt to copy.
The children must be' controlled,
cared for and advised rightly.
The best way to arrive at this, is

What was Going On
We of the twentieth cen,
tury believe that we are liv,

tuous era than ever afflicted
the world before. but let us

and we cannot be so sure.
Look at these great events:

Huguenot; England lost
Calais to France; Ivan the
Terrible ravaged Russia; the
Turks besieged Malta; war

lands; Pope Pius V organized
a Holy League against the
Turks; the Turks were de-
feated at the battle of Lepanto,
the greatest naval battle since
the fleet of Antony a n d
Cleopatra was beaten by
Octavian 1,600 years before;
the massacre of St. Bartholo,
mew; Netherlands provinces
joined together to drive out
the Spanish; the Moors de,
feared the Portuguese in the
Battle of the Three Kings;
the Spaniards invaded Portu,
Col. tAh na i'dh Armadan
a a scattered by
the English fleet; the Edict
of Nantes eded the French
civil wars of religion; the
Japanese invaded Korea; the
Irish rebelled under Hugh
O'Nill; Polish troops inter,
vened in Russia's "time of
troubles" and were thrown
out after three years.
Exploration and colonization:
Manila, Philippine Islands,
founded by the Spanish;
Martin Frobisher sailed in

Queen; Virginia Dare, the
first white child born in
America; the Marquis de la
Roche obtained from Henry
IV of France a commission
to conquer Canada; Samuel
de Champlain sailed up the
St. Lawrence as far as La
Chine Rapids, discovered
the St. John River
and Lake Champlain, and
brought a colony to settle and
found Quebec; Port Royal
founded in Nova Scotia by
the French; first schools in
Canada founded, at Trois,
Riviires and Tadoussac.
Rulers and dynasties: Mary,

Queen of Scots, married Dar-
nky; Darnky caused Rizzio,
favourite of Mary, to be mur,
dered, and was himself mur,
