Big Bulldozer Clears River Channel
SODDEN cricket pitches, impassable roads, landslides
and s vollen rivers have stigmatised this April as the
wettest in living memory. Top entertainment for the
children of Roseau this week has been the sight of the vast
D8 Caterpillar bulldozer thrashing around under the new
bridge. The swirling waters of the Roseau River had cut
a deep channel on the north side and the retaining walls
on either side of the bridge abutment were being steadily
undermined The big "Cat" wallowed down the south
channel deepening it and piling up a dam of rocks to divert
the water away from the north abutment, and now work is
proceeding to repair the walls.

World's Fair
Opened Fracas
Wednesday's opening of the World's
Fair in New York on Wednesdays
was marred by anti-segregation de,
monstrations and bad weather.
Less than a tenth of the crowd ex-
pected turned up, President John-
son's opening speech was delayed
for ten minutes, and 200 demonstra-
tors were arrested.
Owing to discrimination against
Negro workers by contractors en,
gged on the construction, de.non-
strations on the site have been go-
ing on for months: the opening-day
fracas was a protest against the delay,
ing tactics in Congress of diehard
Southerners a g a i n s t the Civil
Rights Bill.

P.M.s' Confer-
Sir Alec Douglas-Home has
announced that the Commonwealth
Prime Minister's Conference will be
held in don from July 8 to 15.
It is understood that since Northern
Rhodesia will not, by then, have
attained independence, Prime Minis,
ter Kenneth Kaunda will not be
invited. The thorny question of
the presentation of Southern Rhc-
dcsia is still in abey-nce. Prime
Minister Ian Smith has signified his
desire to -itond (and S. Rhode ia has
b:en present at previous conferen-
ces), but the issuing of an invitation
is the : preorogative of all the mem-
bers of the Commonwealth and
several votes against the pt',position

pendent. African co u n tries.
-'TBBXC. political commentator
points out that the. possible indepen-

Relcascd in New York in
February last was the n.-ws
that the Ford Foundation
had made a grant to the
University of tne Wes In,
dies for a five-year Training
.and Research Programme in
Public Administration.
The Giant amount to
$286,000 (U.S.) n d is
intended to enable the Uni,
versity to provide facili-ies in
the Eastern Caribbean for
meeting the needs for the
training of civil servants in
that area and particularly in
the Leeward and Windward
Islands. The programme
will provide courses for civil
servants in the middle and
senior ranks who ate, or may
in the near future be, con,-
cerned with the duties of
advising Ministers on matters
of policy and with imple-
menting that policy. In
addition, in-service training
will be provide in functional
skills, e.g., those of financial
control, customs and account,
ing.,, :
Public Administration
-'The grant also provides
for a programme of research
into areas of particular re.
levanee to Public A dminis,
traction in the Eastern Carib,
bean. It is expected that the
results of: such research will
be of great practical value to
the governments concerned.

The director of the pro,
gramme will be Mr. G. E.
Mills, Director of Training
in Public Administration in
the Department 'f Goverrn,
ment of rhe University of the
West Indies. The effective,
ness of the programme will
depend on close working re/
lationships between the De,
1.artments of Government
and of Extra-Mural Studies
of the University and with
Government Training Offi,
cers in the island. Mr. Mills
is at present Acting Head of
the Department of Govern,
ment and Acting Director of
ExtraMural Studies..
Two Training Centres
It is likely that the pro,
gramme of training facilities
will be organised from two
centres in the area with a
Tutor in Public Administra-
tion at each centre. The
Tutor will have responsibili'
ties for organising courses in
his region and for undertak,
ing teaching and research.
Some courses will be con,
ducted' on a regional basis
while others will be held in
individual territories.
Each tutor will draw for
teaching on available local
knowledge and on staff from
the University, from Govern,
ment and from organizations
both within and outside of
the Caribbean. From time
to time there may be an ex/
change of personnel between
the two centres.
Outstanding officers who

have attend-d the courses as

ed for further training in the

MR. R'o b e r t Speaight,
O.B.E., the internation,
ally renowned Shakespearean
actcr and lecturer, will arrive
here on Sunday May 3rd,
staying at Government House,
and will give a Shakespeare
recital in the evening. With
many local talents aspiring to
being on the boards in the
forthcoming Festival of Arts
being planned by the Minis,
try of Labour and Social
Services, Mr. Speaight's reci-'
tal will hardly be more timely
or encouraging.
Part of Robert Speaight's
stock/intrade in depicting
Shakespearean characters, is
the gift of a voice which is
reputed to be one of the finest
speaking voices in the world.
Here is C. V. Wedwood's
appraisal ol this great vocal
talent: W ritin g in the
columns of the "News", a
publication of the Interna-
tional Association of Poets,
Playwrights, Editors, Essay,
ists and Novelists (called
P.E.N. for short) Mr. Wed,
wood* says:
"Mr. .peaight is without
rival in the art of reading
poetry. His beautiful voice,
true and unforced, has a re,
markable range of expressive-
ness. He plays it like an
instrument, with the sensibi.,
lily of a master interpreting
the creative work of another.
Here, without fault or slur,
are all the subtleties of rhythm
and the delicate interplay of
sound, association and mean,
And so with the spell of
"Macbeth in Camera" still
lingering upon us it seems we
are due for yet another such
treat, thanks to the British
Council and the Honourable
Minister for Labour and
Social Services, Mr. W. S.
Stevens, who promptly consen-

the season approaches this type of training is important;- e.g.
(a) 6 x 15O yds. (4 min. rest between each sprict.)
(b) io x 60 yds. (2z min. rest between each sprint.)
The athlete should aim at a fairly consistent time. These two would
of course be run on separate days and combined with jumping.
PRELIMINARY SEASON (2 weeks). Training at this point would include
low hurdling and sprint training, still in the form of interval run-
ing. Also try hopping over distances of up to Ioo feet. Jumpirg
for from twice a week and exercises for the legs and abdomen should
be included in the programme.
EARLY SEASON (3 weeks). Daily training is now longer and more ini
tensive. Technique and form practice now occupies a large part of
the schedule. Sprint training and exercise: should continue.
MID SEASON (3 weeks). Training sessions need not be. so severe. If the
athlete is satisfied with his technique he need give it little or no atten-
tion but concentrate on the approach and building up of leg strength
and speed.
LATE SEASON (I month). The athlete should at this stage of the season
be in peak condition. His technique should be per'tct, In train,

sprinting and low hurdling. Little jumping is done in practice du-

from Monday to Thursday.

Victory For a jinafaiJBaIv
The Consul Cortina which won the 3,189-mile East .,rican Safari
rally recently was a standard model produced for rough territories, it was
announced by the manufacturers-Ford of Britain.
The 90-mile-anbhour saloon has heavy duty suspension and a metal
plate beneath to protect the sump and gearbox.
"It is the type produced for all countries where conditions are rugged",
said a spokesman. "Thousands are in service all over the world, particu,
larly the Commonwealth countries".
Six Grand Tourer Cortinas were entered by Ford. They took first
third, tenth and fifteen places and the manufacturers team prize. Out of
a field of 94, 21 cars completed the course.

.Mr ,Baroni
:Dreams Of Agri-

Dear Mr. Editor,
Agriculture w as
one of the topics on which Mr.
Baron, Political Leader, ranted out
his denunciation at the D.U.P P.
Convention held'at Souf:iere on the
izth April, 1964. Perhaps he is ill
at ease with a trouLl.'d conscien-e
on the subject, not even realizing
that the soil is a living organism
which cannot be cheated.
Under his regime, he held up
Crown Lands, and refused to sell
them to the people cf Dominica.
He and his party were then making
splendid use of our resources.
Weren't they?
The framework of his policy was
to lease the land. Neither his sup-
porters nor the man in the street ever
bothered with 1 e a s i n g Crown
Lanis. The p ) o r Grand-Fon I
people, were bound to accept land
lease, and all the money Mr. Baron
raised in 1960 from this se fish and
relentless policy was ($440.00) four
hundred and forty dollars.
The Labour Government reversed
the iniquitous policy, and this year,
the revenue i expected to be well
over fifty thousand dollar mark. Mr.
John Quashie was not entitled to
ctw"n five or ten acres of land, but
big estate holders can own several
estates each be:ng in the hundreds
of acres. Today, everywhere in
this country, there is agricultural life
throbbing, and banana output is
going up by leaps' and bounds,
thanks to the Labour Party's Policy
of selling Crow-n Lands to friend
and foe, cutting the necessary feeder
roads, and helping those who want
to help themselves.
Talking about agriculkuial poliy
and brains, it was during the Baron
regime that Dominica lost its agri-
cultural geniuses Messrs Hender
son, White, and James who, for the
sake of a few incements were com-
pelled to give up their posts and are
now giving their services to Trini-
Mr. Baron did not wish to have
able people at his elbow, unless they
were to be his political tools. Was
such a policy helpful to agriculture?
And is not Dominica still paying
for this agricultural short sighted-
Mr. Baron said in effect. that the
officers in the Agricultural Depart-
ment are not doing their jobs. I am
glad he has now come to this con-
clusion. that, when Civil servants
do not do their jobs conscientiously,
this country suffer&.
The destructive United People's
Prophets have spared no pains to
undermmin the Labour Government,
through a certain set of officials, w ho
deliberately fail to carry out policy
decisions, or "go slow" on the'a.
Mr. Baron then turns around, and
frantically tells the people "that is
the government you put in power!"
Here is a tip to Mr. Baron if he
is a true loyal citizen. If you can
find officials, agricultural, and other,
wise, not doing their duties as civil

servants, complain to His Honorr
thz Administrator, for Ministers
cannot scold, hire, or fire Civil Ser-
Mr Baron bad the moral courage
to speak of "WASTE!" 4tis regime
encouraged and enthroned waste io
this terrio.y to the extent that the
Labour G,,vtrnment had to appoi..t
a Commission of Inquiry in the
Public Works Department. Up to
this m me nt, the "Bobol and
Waste" continue. The Labour
Governmen- works ov'rtimn to con,
crol it. The money th-r should
have gone to build roads, bridges,
schools e:c. demanded by the Secre-
tary of State to pay the debts and
"WAST'i" of the now defunct
Dominicans no longer suffer fiom
shot memory and can size up surprisingly fast. Mr. Baron,
I am told, own; land in his native
town of Portsmouth. Jt is often
said, that on those lands, snakes are
managers, ground lizards are watch-
men, and crabs are labour is.
Today, since la.2ds have been re-,
leased by the Labour Government:
officials, and unofficial no longer
move from house to hou-e at week,
ends firing "grg". Instead, they
resort on .atordays to their newly
acquired lands to plant. Mr. Baron
thinks it very hard to do likewise.
Has he ever planted an Ochre in
his life? Unless he can assure us,
that he has he is far from being
convincing, when he tries to ponti-
ficate on agriculture. He wold
surely prefer to carry coals to New-
castle. it only be could make a
"0 ye gods, and small fishes."
Yours faithfully,

THE great novelist Dostoievsky wrote a
book of which the English title was
The Insulted and Injured. It is a great and
compassionate work, and its evocative
name has always stayed in our mind.
On an occasion when a Trinidad reporter
asked a Federal Minister 'why are you in
politics?' she replied: 'on behalf of the
insulted and injured'.
Who are the insulted and injured&
Things have changed a lot since Dostoiev,
sky's time (1821-188I), particularly in
the country of his birth; but there are
always in the world thousands of helpless
or unprotected beings who require cham,
pionship. Sometimes they are submerged
in the current miseries of their lives; some,
times they gain strength, nursing forever
the scars of old insults and injuries, until
they in turn become 't h e injurious.
Sometimes, happily, they not only gain
-strength or powerbiut also wisdom and
insight which gives them sympathy for the
underlings of the earth, so that they dedi-
cate themselves to lifting up rather than to
We would place in this happy category
such great living leaders as Jawaharlal
Nehru, Julius Nyerere, John Karefa Smart
(Foreign Minister of Sierra. Leone), Dr.
Martin Luther King, The Prime Minister
and Labour Minister of Nigeria, and -
yes, while admitting that not all the
insults and injuries have been on one
side Jomo Kenyatta, Prime Minister of
Kenya. These ren have risen above
the past and turned their sight towards a
brotherly enlightenment. O u r readers
may think of several other illustrious
It is a fact that the race which considers
itsdf the most insulted and injured in the
world today is the Negro race, although
during Hilter's reign of terror the Jews
were most hideously persecuted. That
there is tremendous justification for this
rahkling feeling is also a fact, particularly
in lands like South Africa, Southern
Rhodesia and frankly- parts of the
United States of America. It is become,
ing less and less trLe of the majority of
Commonwealth territories.
We know that those who are most
vulnerable to insults and injuries are
minority groups, whatever the complexion,
since their capacity for redress is so feeble.
That is why we keep a solicitous eye on
the treatment of our migrants even in Bri-
tain of today, why we feel aggrieved and
alarmed by the pronouncements of Mr. Ian
Smith, new P. M. of S. Rhodesia, why
we shudder when coloured students or
humble people are not given their proper

educational and social rights, or when
peasants' landholdings are threatened in
our very island.
We are concerned to discover when an-
insult really is an insult, since it might
well turn out to be a cooked, u garbled
version of a personal comment. We
are glad of the opportunity given to us by
an American living and working in our
midst to print his version of c e r t a i n
published statements which have been
circulated for political and or business
purposes to create a scene and possibly a
deportation. Our readers will be able to
form their own opinion after reading the
material on this page.
An American living in Dominica
today is in rather a defenceless position,
although he belongs to one of the most
powerful countries of the globe. We
have no resident American Consul,' and

not intervene where questions ,of insults
and injuries are concerned, bearing in
mind that his compatriots are guests in a
foreign place. Then, too, Americans do
not appear to be clannish in a national
sense, in the same manner as the English,
the French and (yes) the West Indians
abroad. We have' seen that they are
averse to springing to the defense of one
of their own people while living abroad
and may, in fact, behave in just the oppo,
site manner, condemning him unhead.
Not for them the quixoti: attitude 'my
countryman, right or wrong'.
How then can the stranger (whatever
his origin) makes his case known when
he thinks he has been misjudged or mis/
interpreted? First, he can appeal to the
spirit of common justice vested in a dem,
ocratically elected government. Next, he
can state his case through th. medium of
the free Press, or a free Radio, is there is
one. We shall not here outline the third
and fourth steps.
In the particular case in point, the gen,
tleman was civilly received, heard and
recorded by a Government Minister. That
is good. He has stated his case to the
newspapers. That is fair. At the time
of going to Press with this editorial we
await the outcome. We feel optimistic
that an island which has received so much
from America in the way of friendship,
aid, and offers of aid, could not deport
another American citizen who has poured
sweat and money into our soil for anything
less than a genuine crime. In this affair,
is it not probable that the alleged insulted
are on one side and the potentially injured
on the other?

Shakespeare Af
From The Royal Bank 0

A Master of Words
Those who care most forf
Shakespeare value him in the
first place for his use of lan,
gua'e, his verbal music.
Shakespeare was a master
of all moods. He cculd
thunder like the guns on D t
Day, and then in a twinkle (
he could turn to words so
soft that they would not
break a soap bubble. But
in the proud full sail of his
great verse he moved with
the stream of common speech.
He did not drag in unusual
words like peacock's feathers
to decorate a fowl's tail.
There is no sign of strain or
out/ofcharacter acting when
his players speak in great
poetry. A- Dryden wrote
of him: "All the images of
Nature were still present to
him, and he drew them, not
laboriously, but luckily;
when he describes anything
you more than see it, you
feel it too."
Shakespeare found the
words to express our deepest
secrets. His skill in placing
onse, syllable beside another
gives us acute pleasure. He
put life into hi; plays not
only with the magic of words
but of thought, with an ear
to the appeal of ideas as well
as to the sounds of things.
Some present day script
writers strive to achieve that
which arouses fear, and pro.,
duce only what is monstrous.
What Shakespeare indulged
in monstrosities it was not
far the sake of their moastro,
sity but for their contribution
to the story. When he calls
up the three witches or a
deformed creature like Cali,
ban he convinces us that if
there were such beings they
would so conduct themselves
His skill in transforming
human character and action
into art created .a world of
unforgettable people and
Human activities are not
mere ant-like rushing to and
fro. T h e characters are
motivated by passion, reason,
interest and habit, and we
are made to acknowledge
that their actions and senti,
ments are, from those motives,
the necessaty results. Often,
like Oedipus, they do not
know their own promptings,
but stumble toward their fate
unconsciously. Yet they are
revealed to the audience by
what they say, by (heir man,

silences, by their actions and
by what others says about
A Vigorous Author
Shakespeare wrote vigor,
oully without letting the
effort show. He scattered
the seeds of things, the p.rinr'
ciples of character and action,
with a cunning hand, yet
with a careless air. He roll,
ed the genuine passions of
nature on his tongue, and
put them i n t o sentences
carved with powerful wi:.
But he was a realist, too.
He tidied up. Life is not
all pure drama.
Shakespeare was not a
great original thinker. Few
poets are that is not their
business. What he did was
to give point to the things
inside people a:,d bring them
out into the open. Some,
one has said that "Shake,
speare initiated nothing, but
he brought all the aboitixe
beginnings of others to a
triumphant conclusion."
To all his magpie appro,
priations he added from his
own experiences and the tales
of wonder of the brave new
worlds which Elizabeth sea,
dogs were discovering.

Dear Mr. Editor:-Here I
am again with a few words
of advice to all concerned.
Do Dominicans want a
grant-aided island deporting
all s ranger= from their coun,
try? Some Dominicans are
asking3 the-Chief Minister to
decort Mr. Robinson and
they don't want him a
man that will help everybody
in the island.
If you think I am lying,
read So They Say. It is said
the truth hurts, and that is
true Sir. I am prepared to
offer a reward of $r' as one
small man, to any man that
can say that he has a staff
that he can rely on in this
country. I am no historian
but the Church has historians
and they have been here over
400 years, yet there is o80 per
cent that can't read and write
ini-his land.
Look at some of the things
that we Dominicans are
doing, You can be for a
man or against him; look at
the roads in town while they
are fighting for power and
trying same time to deport
strangers from here. Stop-
and think for awhile and see
who wants deporting. The
attitude that some Domini-
cans have, they will get any
man b r o k e. The general
attitude of the people in
regards to banana cultivation
where a man asks $o10 per
day according to the job and
the labour problem, is just
too bad. Blame the author,
ties and not Bruce Robinson.
Dominicans hate all strangers
including the Syrians, they
hate the Labour Party too.
All in all Dominicans don't
know who not to hate.
The very people that are
selling for Bruce hate him.

Flying Lika The
In Britain there are 60 glider
clubs, with more than 4,000 mem-
bers. Some people have their own
sailplanes, but many use aircraft
belonging to their clubs. They
pay a set amount each year to be
a member, and five shillings each
time they make a flight. 21lying
in a sailplane is probably as close
to real flying (like birds) as any,
body can achieve.
Anybody flying a sailplane sits
in a small cockpit near the nose of
the aircraft. The pilot feels that
the wings stretching out on either
side of him really are part of him.
The cockpit is usually covered over
wiLh a kind of unbreakable glass, so
that one really feels as "though one is
in the sky, and not in an aircraft.
Having been launched into tlhe
air, the pilot faces the problem of
staying there. For, when flying at
30 miles per hour in still air, a sail,
plane loses height at the rate of about
three fact per second.
Pilots have to find natural upcnr,
rents of air-which may lift them at
the rate of ten feet per second.

Practical gliding plays an important part in air cadet training in Britain.
a cadet receives instructions about how to manage his "sailplane".-BIS.

Sometimes the air above part of
the land becomes hotter than the rest,
and starts to rise. It will carry a
glider up with it.
Pilots know that these "thermals",
as they are called, often occur above
a ploughed field, a wood or a town.
Another way in which a pilot
can gain height is when the wind
blows on to a hill and bounces off
it in an upwards direction. Air
blowing from high mountain ranges
will provide the same lift,

Sailplane pilots watch birds, for
they use the same currents to gain
Sometimes, however, a pilot will
find one of the currents first. The
birds in the area will notice this, and
will often join the glider in its up"
ward flight.
Staying In The Air
By using the currents of ai-, it is
possible to stay in the air for a very
long time as long as two or
more days.


Most people, however, do not
stay in the air for that length of time,
in case they should fall asleep.
More people in Britain are join-
ing gliding clubs, and this is the
easiest way to enjoy the sport. For
not only is a sailplane expensive
(even for those who are clever
enough to make their own), but
anybody flying one needs help from
others who hold the wings
steady, operate the winch (which
literally hauls the glider into the air),
signal for the takeoff, and fetch the
towline by tractor for the next glider.



"Calypso In A Cold Climate"

By Jack Monro

This is an unoriginal but enthusiastic review of an
ITV (Independent Television) programme I've just been
watching this Sunday evm.ning, March, r4th, which I'm
sure would have interested ana impressed West Indians
while the belated snovw storms blanket down over central
and eastern England and make me so thankful to live in
The regular p.m. "Sunday Break" programme,
introduced with Christian largesse by Barry Westwood,
today reviewed "15 Years of West Indian Immigration into
England." Did I hear the nostalgic echo of "This is my
island in the sun, where I have toiled since life begun". and
where "even people are frigid to:"'
And just where are the great West Indian centres?
There's Birmingham, Cardiff, Nottingham, of course.
But really it's London that's the great metrop -is for them
as for everyorie, Ridley Road, Dalston, at a weekend
might be West Indies. And, fanning out from there cr
Bnxton towards the suburbs, by the time you get to Totten,
ham, wnole streets are black, tight little communit;cs, segra,
gated ghettoes of the future. Unless .. .
Un e,s, of course, Jamaican Johnny Watson, prosper.,
ing in his coier stere, is right when he says they're not
here for keeps,'and describes the wonderful and highly
practical work he does in supplying them with pumpkins
and yams and mangoes and banainasonthestem and what,
not to 1.ep them from being homesick, and starting to
help them purchase plots of land back home 'n Jamaica to
return to, back home in the suir.
Johnny arrived here, trained as a surgical shoemaker,
ten years ago, but couldn't get any skilled job, so went into
British Railways at Hornsey, From there he moved to
various other jobs involving not much less abuse as part of
-4 :'-nraturaP-treatmcnt for black people, until- finally--h
got independence with his cornerstore.
Vincent Campbell, assemblyshop, manager for a
North London engineering firm, is able to take a rather
different line. He says: '~ We West Indians ae slow com,
pared with Europeane. And we think we know a lot,
just like they think they know a 16:, Best thing is if we
stop and think again what the Europeans h.we to offer us,
and tackle a job as a man should tackle it, not 2s black or
white." That's fine for him; he's an assembly shop mana,
ger. Well then, so its's possible .. for the odd man.
Aren't the churches even doing anything? No. They've
failed. Quite simply, where 69% of West Indians back
home in the island used to attend church regularly, now in
England less than 40/ do so. Why; Because they find
that white people, who first taught them their religion,
themselves in Eagland don't go to church, even though the
churches are nicely heated. And, after all, white people
are still the models for West Indian people. Or are they?
Certainly not whtre Religion is concerned! Here too
the West Indians have been forced into unwanted segrega,-
tian, away at least from bleakness of the sparse white
"service", to the warmth and happiness of the old-fashioned
Pentecostal small gathering, whpre "Oh gloiy, glory, there's
sunshine in my soul."
Everybody ought to know who Jesus is:
It's different now, since Jesus saved my soul.
Keep telling, keep telling, wherever you go:
It's different, now, since Jesus made me whole.
Rev. Clifford Hill is a rare white parson who over years past has,
with vast difficulties from both sides, build upja joyous mixed black and
white congregation, He says; "Generally we "have tended to treat West
Indians as a 'problem' instead of asking what they can give us. And
one thing they certainly can give us, and which is going to revolutionize
many of our chur-h services in future, is Music not to mention, the lay
precbhers and readers, sidesmen, sunday-school teachers and all the rest
with which they can fortify us."
There was a moment, Father Hill reminisces. when white opposition
to his church integration programme was so violent that the whole of the
front of hik vicarage was plastered with white paint and dirty slogans.
But it rebounded, as one could haiv hoped and known, in the tight di-
tection, There's been a vast improvement says Father Hill, even in such
a short time as since thoze days of the Notting Hill riots. And he looks

forward to the time when "there will be born a fully integrated multi,
racial community "
But everyone parson, engineering shop-manager. corner-store
keeper and the rest is agreed that of all the work being done towards
that great Christian human ideal of the multi-racial ccminunity, none is
more important or more successful than what is achieved in the primary
schools. It's true, the wonderful work performed by West Indian workers
on the underground railways and by our West Indian hospital nurses is
steadily building up mutual affection as well as respect. But it is above
all in the schools to which the littlest people, black and white, go that
unconscious, unquestioning acceptance and friendship are being solidly
founded. 'A nameless thoroughly Cockney headmaster, appearing on the
screen, detailed some of the primitive ways in which nonwhite new-
comer children often have to be instructed in hygiene, use of toilets,
and so on. He too reminisced charmingly about past times when parents
had angrily withdrawn their children because of the mounting number
of negroes not to mention Cypriots. Maltese, Poles, XLdenese and so
on. But then he sent the ball flying back by adding that he had had
almost as much trouble from West Indian parents withdrawing their
children from his school for the same reason ! !
