At the Dominica banana Growers. Associacon meeting

list Monday, the Chairman (Mr. Stefford Shillingford)
stressed that greater efficiency was needed in growing and
that if Imperial Preference to U.K. market goes, the price to
banana growers must be economic at three certs per Ib.
rather than the present minimum economic price of 4.2
cen.s. The quality of fruit he said, must improve.

PACE TWO



Message from: the Rt. Hon.
Or. Eric Williams, Prime Minister
of Trinidad & Tobago, to the Con-
ference of Commonwealth Cham-
bers of Commerce, which opened
at the Trinidad Hilton Hotel on
20th April, 1964. —

LONG, OVERDUE



RECOGNITION OF GARIBBEAN

HE selection of Port-cf-Spain as the venue cf your Cor-

fercnce, to be followed later this year by the Meeting of

th- Commenwealth Patliamentary Association in Jamaica,

represents a leng overdue tecognition of the role cf the
Caribbean in the Commonwealth.

In extending to you a warm welcome to Triaidad, I
take this opportunity of expressing my siticere appreciation
of the courtesies extended to me on my recent tour of the
Governmenss of Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda,
Kenya, Tanganyika and the United Kingdom, and I am
certain that equal courtesy will be «xtended by the Govern
ment of Canada when JI arrive there tomorrew.

The Genzva Conference, preceded by the Loadon
meeting of Commonwealth Trade Minisiers, has afforded
us another welcome opportunity of Commonwealth con-
sultation whyzh will perhaps be -taken further at the Con
ference of Commenwealth Prime Ministers in July. -

_ The developing countries in particular will understand

our.growing concern over markeis, our insistence that our
historical associaticns should not lightly be discarded to our
_disadvantige, our advocacy of the cause of small cour tiies,
our: protest against the discrimination to which the Carib-
. bean-is-exposed ir: matters of economic assistance.

_ - -T hope that your stay in Trinidad will give you some
insight into Caribbean realities and-will help you to under-
stand our emphasis on our right to equal treatment whether
“in the Commonwealth or in the United Nations.



“achievements in self-help, our partnership between Govern:
_ ment and the private sector, our expansion of the demmocra-
“tic structure and. practices inherited from the Common-
“wealth, all’ these will, I hope, suggest that our role in the
“Commonwealth and the world need: not necessarily be
limited by our deficiency of land space or physical
resources. — 2 ; i

LT wish you.a pleasant stay in Trinidad and all success

_in your deliberations. |

Commonwealti
Youth Sunday

ffter very careful consideration,
the Committee of Commonwaalth
Youth Sunday has decided ‘co re.
commend to Her Majesty The
Queen that 1964 shall be the last
_ Occasion on which Commenwealth
Youth Sunday, as such, will be
officially observed, The story that
lies behind the reaching of this deci-
sion is as folluws:—

Opinion had . been received Gera
various sources, both at home and
abroad, thet the original conception
of Commonweal Youth Sunday
required rethinking: A working
Party.was accordingiy » set up to de-
cide whether a change of policy was
‘necessazy, This
analysed the success achieved by
Commoenweilth Youth Sunday in
"recent years, particularly in the Unit-
ed Kingdom, and the following
prints emerged:-

(a) There seems to have been a
decline © in’. the observances in the
United Kingdom during the last
ten years; the cverall picture is an
Uneven ore, with a few traditionally
strong areas.

(b) Tbe Present tendency of the

working Party : June,

The Committee of Common-
wealth Youth: Sundzy, on their part,
agreed that any fiinds in their pesses-
sion let after the. winding up of
Commonwealth Youth Sunday and
the issuing of the final Annual Re-
port, should be given to The Joint

to assist them in furthering the aims
of Commonwealth Youth Sunday
as out'ined above.

There are also other questions

(a) The Commonyréileh contains’

a gteat_ majority of non-Christians, |

The’ Service can, ’ therefore be-

come’a dividing rather than a unif-

ig factor’ among young people of
the Commonwealth.

The Working Party were anxious
to avoid the observance slowly de-
clining and ceasing to be taken seri-
ously, and for this reason they felt
it better to take an incisive step,
while it was still held in repute.
For this reason, they recommended
to the Committee that Common-
wealth Youth Sunday should’be
discontinued after ‘the. 1964 observ-
ance.

Ass has’ alieady been stated, the
Co:nmittee accepted this recommen-
dation, but with regret.

Future

The question then arose as to how
the aims of Commonwealth Youth
Sunday could be perpetuated in the
future, as far as possible.
negotictions and meetings with The
Joint Commonwealth Societies,
Council. agreement has been re-ch-
ed whereby they have undertaken to
take steps to bring Youth to a great-
er extent’ into the celebrations on
Commonwealth Day (24th May),
and to lay stress onthe desirability
of a religious observance on Com-

monwealth Day, not only in West-

HE month of May has siarted with a
flourish’ of trade union burgeoning
and a public holiday. It is fitting that
the seminar laid on by the Caribbean
Congress of Labour should be taking
place at this time. Lectures, processions,
admonitions and sport are the order of
May Day, and although we miss a certain
decorative pastoral gaiety — the mayfole,
the country dances in the open air, the
flowers on the .brows of several May
,— perhaps “in future years the
Unionists will elect their own Queen
when theirranks are much augmented...
a _Queen‘chtsen not only for her beauty
but for indistry-and integrity.
May is supposed to be a merry month,

but we hgse started it in all seriousness.
‘One thing which was noteworthy at last

Sunday's opening:session of the C. C. L.
seminar (when the speeches ere rather
interesting) was the constant emphasis on

that there are three forms of federation still
existent between the islands: the federation
of sport, (and particularly of cricket), the
federation of academics epitomised by the
University’ of the West Indies, and the
federation of trade unionism which goes
beyond” small-island and even national

the grass has never been so high (due to
soaking rains). ‘ Most of the leaders of the
old federation were “grass roots” people
themselves. They did not just spring up
overnight, but pushed upwards over long
years of unsung toil to form that desirable
but destructible forest tree. Many of them
patiently stumped the country telling the
people about the obvious advantages of
federation. That they were listened to and
undetstood was evidenced by the votes
they received. But what has happened
since that cutting down or mowing down
of the original federation, not only by two
great scythes but by a variety of little cut-
lasses? No attempt has been made to re-
educate the people towards federation

' Workers of the C ari b-

We extend greeting to you
from: the Free Democratic

Today the Trade Union
Movement celebrates — with
joy and gratitude this day
marking the international
charactec of solidarity of the
working. people, For us in
this part. of the world, the
struggles have been intensive,
but . we. stand firmly even

though at times we seem to ~

be matched against forces so

it possible to be members
of the growing family -of
organised | workers. ‘Many
new agreements have been
completed,. gaining for our




wages, pensions, leave facili-
ties and. securing other im-
provements... Above all, the
trade union movement and
in ‘spite of all obstacles has
made.a sizeable’ contribution
in! maintaining the freedom
and liberty of our people.

We have intensified our
education programme3, and
it ‘is gratifying to report that
a very high percentage of the
trade union movement cf the
area has been able to orgarise
‘seminars and short courses for
‘members. "CCL is happy
to have been able to spear-
‘head this -great edwcational
drive. But our work would
be nought were it not fer the
,sustained assistance of ORIT-
ICFTU. which made it possi-
-ble for us -to establish our
education department.

On the bad side ot history,
we report to you today that
the Movement is engaged in
a life-atid-death struggle in
British Guiana — a struggle
against the attempt of the
Government to control the
labour movement.

In Jamaica our affiliate is
locked in a grim struggle in
an insistence on the applica-
tion’ of the principle that
workers should not be arbitra-
tily dismissed from their jobs.
We must bring to your

The Boiling Lake
Of Dominica

By G. B. Robson
B.Se., Ph. D.

prised recently to learn that the
famous -Boiling Lake had almosc

dered whether this happening was
of any special importance.

son and it bas. always reappeared.

The Boiling Lake, in its normal
condition, is probably the largest
natiiral hot spring in the world. It
will surprise those who do not know
the mountains of Dominica that
although the island was first settled

y the British in 1759, and was, sur-
veyed in 1770 and ree the exis-
of the. Boiling Lake’ was not discov-
ered until 1875 — more than a
century after tiie island was first sett-
led Ly Europeans.:

About the time ef its discovery
the lake temperature was reported to
be 91 degrees Cent'grade, though a
year later in 1876 its temperature had:

"fallen 10 36 degrees. Five years after

the lake was discovered, an eruption,
or more properly a steam explosion,
took place near the Boiling Lake.
On 4th January £880 at z1.00 a.m
arumbling sound was
southern Dominica. and was repeat-
ed at intervals. Rain was threaten-
ing and it was then seen that a great
black cloud had risen from the
Grande Souftiere and was coming
towards Rosexu. At 11.03 a vio-
lent squall of wind passed over the
town and at 11,r0 the rain turned
to.a failof mud and volcanic sand
with a strong sulpharous smell.
Fifteen minutes later the sky had
cleared. Later both the ~Roseau
and the Point Mulatre rivers came
down in floods of muddy water, the
Roseau river rising twelve feet above
the usual level. .

The ash deposit was two feet
thick at the Grande Souftiere, a
quarter of an inch thick in Roseau
aud it also fell on the deck of a
schooner at sea five miles west of

‘ Roseav,, But-no ash fell at Pointe

Michel to the sowth, or Canefield to
the north. It was at first thought
tha’ this steam explosion had origin-
ated from the Boiling Lake, but on
t2th January Dr. H.A. Nicholls
visited the Grand Soutriere and es-
tablished chat the . explosion had oc-
cured from the old crater that is now
called the Valley: of » Desolation.

“THE NECKLACE

A Famous Skirt Story By GUY de MAUPASSANT—
4% : 1850-1893
Ve was one of those preity and charming young girls

who sometimes are born, as if by a slip of fate, into a
family of clerks. Shz had no dowry, no expectations, no
way cf being known, understood, loved, and wedded by
any rich and distinguished man; so she let herself be mar-

~ ried to a little clerk of the Ministry of Public Instruction.

_ She dressed plainly because she could not dress well,
but she was as unhappy as if she had really fallen from a
higker station; since with women there is neither caste nor
rank, for beauty, grace and charm take the place of birth
and breeding. Natural ingenuity, instinct for what is ele-
gant, a supple mind are theic sole hierarchy, and often
make of women of the people the equals of the very greatest
ladies.

Mathilde suffered ceaselessly. feeling herseif born to
enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. She was distressed at
the poverty of her dwelling, at the bareness of the walls, at
the shabby chairs, the ugliness of the curtains. All those

things, of which another womai of her rank would never

_ even have been conscious, tortured her and made her angry.
The sight of the little Breton peasant who did her humble:
housework aroused in her despairing regrets and bewilder-
ing dreams. She thought of silent antechambers hung
with Oriental tapestry, illumined by tall bronze candelabra,
and of two great footmen in knee-breeches.’ She thought

of long reception balls hung with ancient silk, of the dainty
cabinets cox



‘gomfaming priceless curiosities and of little coquet-
tish perfumed reception rooms made for chatting at five
o'clock with intimate friends, with men famous and sought
after, whom all women envy and whose’ attention they all
‘desire. rs

_ When sh2 sat down to dinner, before the round table
covered with a tablecloth (in use three days) opposite her
husband, who uncovered the soup-tureen and declared with

~a-delighted*air, “Ah, the good soup! I don’t know any- look up your friend,

DOMINICA. HERALD

By a violent effort she conquered her grief and replied
in a calm voice, while she wiped away her tears:

“Nothing. Only I have no gown, and, therefore, I
can’t go tothis ball. Give your card to same colleague
whose wiie is better equipped than I am.”

He was in despair. He resumed:

“Come, let us see, Mathilde. How much would
it cost, a suitable gown, which you could use on_ other
occasions — someching very simple?”

She reflected several seconds, making ker calculations
and wondering also what sum she could ask withouc draw-
ing on herself an immediate refusal and a frightened ex-
clamation from the economical clerk. Finally she replied
hesitatingly: °

“T don’t know cxactly, but I think I could manage
it with four hundred francs.”

He grew a little pale, because he was laying aside just
that amount 10 buy a gun and treat himself to a little

‘What is the matter? Come, you have seemed vety

“And she answered: ‘It annoys me not to have a

From GCL:

(Cont from page 5}

We report that certaia
employers are bent on our
destruction and are today
makiag every endeavour to
weaken the unions which
represent their employees.

There are some employers,
however, who have extended
to us the hand of industrial
co-operation, making it possi-
ble for a.good iabour rela-
tions climate to prevail in
their business undertakings.
This is a good policy if future
progress is to be ensured; and
to those good employers we
extend our sincere promise. of
full co-operation.

Those who for selfish
reasons would wish to fight
‘ke unions must be prepared
to meet with our stern and
militant resistance. We
make no threats, but it is our
profound conviction that cers’

shining ‘silverware, of tapestry that peopled the walls with

| ancient personages and with strange birds flying in: the

" midst of a fairy forest; and she thought of delicious dishes

served cn marvellous plates and of the whispered gallantries

to which you listen with a sphinx-like smile while you are
eating-the wings of a perdrix.

She had no gowns, no jewels, nothing: And she

loved nothing but that. She felt made for that. She

would have liked so much to please, to beenvied, to be
charming, to be sought ‘after.

She had a friend, a former schoolmate at the convent,
who was rich, and whom she did tot like to see any more
because she fele so sad when she came home. ;

Bnt one evening her husband came home with a
triumphant. air'and holding a large envelope in his hand.

“There,” said he, “there is s»mething for you.”

She tore the’ paper quickly and drew out a printed
card which bore these words:

“The Minister of Public Institution and Madame

Georges Ramponneau request the honour of M. and.

MadameLoisel’s company at the palace of the Ministry

on Monday evening, January 18th.”

Instead of being delighted as her husband had hoped,
she threw the invitation on the table, crossly muttering:
“What do you wish me to do with that?”

“Why, my dear, { thought you would be glad.
You never go out, and this is such a fine opportunity. I
had great trouble te get it. Everyone wants to go; it is very
select, and they-are not giving many invitations to clerks.
The whole official world will be there.”

She looked at him with an irritated glance and_ said
impatiently: ‘And what do you wish me to put on my
back?” He had not thought of that. He stammered:

“Why, the gown you go to the theatre in. It looks
very well to me.” He stopped, distracted, seeing that his
wife was weeping. Two great tears ran slowly from the
corners of kér eyes towards the ‘corners of her mouth.
“What's the mattet?. What's the matter?” he asked.

that.” |. :
She uttered a ciy of joy: “True, I never thought of
it!” The next day she wert to her friend and told her of her
distress. Madame Forestier went to a wardrobe with a
mirrer, took out a large jewel box, brought it back, opened
it and said to Madame Loisel:
“Choose, my dear.”

She saw first sone bracelets, then a pearl necklace,
then a Venetian gold cross set with precious stones of
admirable workmanship. She tried on the ornaments
before the mirror, hesitated and could not make up her
mind to part with them, to give them back. She kept
asking: ‘‘Haven’t you any more?” |

Why yes, look further; I don’t know what you like.’
Suddenly she discovered, in a black satin box, a superb
diamend necklace and her heart throbbed with a immo-
derate desire. Her hands trembled as she took it. She
fastened it around her throat and was lost in ecstasy at her:
reflection in the mirror. Then she asked, hesitating, filled
with anxious doubt: .

“Will you lend me this, only this?”

“Why, yes, certainly.”

She threw her arms round her friend’s neck, kissed
her passionately, and then fled with her treasure.

wou'd often meet with criticisms on
the government; probably because it
1s ot the litdemen gioup, I am right
to have such belief because yots meet
the bulk of blamcs coming from
‘‘aristocrats” who continually perse-
vere to: make many believe that the
increases on shop goods are through
tne Labour Government.

Last week at Colihaut there was
aD.U.P.P. general meeting, They
were requested by questioners to detail
a two million dof'ars grant to Baren’s
government while in power, and the
answer was incomplete.

For the mere reason that Mr. Le-
blanc is presently leading the Gov-
ernment the big folks.are all plann-
ing strife, but my loyal duty is to
support any Government in pcwer
once it pursue a duty of justice and
love, nevertheless I am, and will al-
ways maintain myself to be of the
Labour Party of Dominica till I can
find fault with them. If the Opposi-
tion had the love it is continually
preaching, its people would work
smoothy with the Govt. till'the com-
ing election and its leader would not
mislead the people on _price-control
when he comes to Colihaut.

Noise About



Dear. Madam:

The first though: to
come to mind on reading about the
Bruce Robinson’s affair was, who
was so interested in blackening an-
ether man’s name and reputation as
to-go to the trouble of baving typed
many copies cf an 1:00-word atti-
cle for distribution in advance of the
breaking of this story? Who would
stand 19 profit most from the elimin-
ation of Mr. Robinson and Sylvania-
Fresh chickens itcom the Dominican
scene?

Certain conclusions are inescapa-
ble. Trade papers, b: they publish-
ed for the poultry business, the oak-
ing trade, the . steel industry, are
rarely read by others than those

~ interested in the specific industry.
How many readers of BAKERS
WEEKLY of IRON AGE, for example,
are there on Dominica? It seems
sel@evident that only persons con-
-neceed with the poultry business
could in this instance have had any
mctive for initiating the attack on
Mr. Robinson.

Did tae other Dominica sews-
paper have advance knowledge ot
the impending circulation of the
typed copies cf this “cffensive arti-
cle: Ifsvo, would it not have been
in the interest of good joucnalism
and unbiased reporting to have ob-
tained a statement from the “accus-
ed”, to have learned whether these
were truly che facts and all the facis,
rather than to have gone all out to
inflame the public mind against the
American Mr. Robinson?

Mrs. Narodney, who has hereto-
fore had our high regard as an indi-
vidual and a writer, seems now her-
self not to be free of error and mis-
conception. The writer of this letter



can personally recall not being able,
in 1961, to purchase anything but
inported, longeftozen chicken with-
out going to Gcodwill -— and then
wt was not always available. One
of the most widely read and fre-
quently quoted books on Dominica
speaks of the “scarcely suppertabie
heat” of Roseau. Perhaps the in-
tense heat of recent days is responsi-
ble for the. specious rage expressed
by Mrs. Narodmy anda certain
noisy, geoupof Dominica at Mr.

- Robinson’s remarks concerning
landslides, excessive rainfall aad
siowness of tue mails — ali indisput-
able facts. Are these people sc
sensitive about and aware of some
of the less pleasant aspects of Dom-
inica -- and some Dominicans —
“tha: they can tolerate 0 criticism?
Or 1s xt simply self-interest that has
moved this tiny if vociterouy ciciueut
to blow the whole matter up out of
all proportion?

Centainly any harm done Dom-
anica vy the paltry citculauon of the
offending article among poultry
growes in the Unitea States 1s
microscopic when viewed in the
light of distribution abroad of facts
concerning a vicious attack ona
foreigner in. Dominica whose chief
offence seems to be .. that, unwitting,
ly, he has trodden on some Domini-
can to-s.

One wonders what might be the
public reaction, were. Mrs. Natod-
ney’s business employers to state that
they share her confidence in the dis-
pensability of such ordinary safe-
guards as keeping property’ under

lock and key? Frequent reference .

ismade to Dominicans being cn
extremely proud people. It is never-

theless difficult to believe that with

cut considerable deliberate fanning
of the Hames public feeling in this
matter woula have been roused suffi-

ciently to permit the disgraceful street «

demonstrations of Friday 17th, April.
Were these the acts of the good and
gentle host — or even a good Chris-
uan?

Certainly all governments need
money — and more and .ore
Money ‘— to operate, But surely
customs duties are not the only possi-
ble source of such revenue for Dom-
inica! Even Antigua has recently
imposed a land tax which seems to
have been inaugurated with litle op-
position. Why could it not be
done here?) Ferhaps Dsminica too
couid then. be freed of the necessity
of “gettng a handout from Mother
England.”

in concJusien, to refer azains to
Mrs. Narodncy’s letter and pasticu-
larly the last paragraph, establish-
ment of the first sizeable and con-
stantly dependable production of
readily available fresh-killed poultry
has beer 0 less thaa an effort “‘to
help Dominica move forward.”

Pa Reem Se
Too Old?
Dear Mr. Editor,

I notice that so far no one
has suggested Eddie Robin-
son as captain ef Dominica.
{ have heard it mentioned
that he is an “old man”.

Is Robinson older chan
Ivan Shillingford, the Larti-
gue brothers, David Burton,

Eric Richards, or Sparrow
Winston when they played?

= —

Tlis is the first instance I
can recall w.cna player is
celled “old a: the age of 35.”

If R>binson was appointed
to capiain cur team, he will
nec have been called out

on
retirement as were the 1952
and 1954 captains. His

capabilities both as captaia
of his club and opening bats-
man for Dominica cannct be
questioned. There is no
one playing the game to-day
vho possesses half the know-
ledge cf the position that he
dues.

If the reason for his non-
selection would ke that his
services as “‘chief cook and
bottle washer” during the
Tournament could not be
dispensed with, I would
understand that! but sugges:
ing that he is too old is absurd.
Sit Frank Worrell was ap-'
pointed captain of the West:
Indies at the age of 36 and
has proved to be the best
captain ever.

If Robinson were to be
appointed, Mr. Editor, it
would be an honour ‘which
is 10 yeats overdue; but bet-
ter late than never.

CRICKET

Dramatic One-Wicket Victory Far

With conditions almost seventy-
five per cent better in that the
‘pitch at the Windsor Park played
truer and easy-paced, the tone of play
in the first trial match brightened
considerably, ending in a dramatic
one-wicket victory tor Lewis side.
The final scores were Shillingford’s
team Iso and 112. Lewis’ 1x
177 and 87,

The retuen to batting form of
Cecil Laiocgue 49 and 28 was a
particularly pleasing feature of the
batting. His meticulous defence,
stylish: hooks to mid wicket and
beautiful timing brought a degree of
character to his innings. Irvine
Shillingford promised good things in
both innings but fell when seem-
ingly on top. He made 37 and 23.
The-only other batting performance o

* note was a responsible 26 by Osborne
in his S€¥’s second innings.

iL .
Nesty, . Laurent Impressive
In the bowling department Black-
burn’s Arthur Nesty and S. M, A.’s
K, Laurent turned in creditable per-
formances. Nesty, in a beautiful
spell of fast bowling cent back Grell,
Shillingferd, John and Corriette thus
breaking the back of the slightly for-
midable batting airay. This petfor-
mance poses a further headache to the
selectors as there is very little to choc:
among the pacers vieing for selection.
Lautent, a highly successful bow-
ler; especially at Windsor Park dur-
ing the league season placed himself
in a most favourable’ position with a
worthy effort bagging nine wickets in
the match,

The fielding was of a relatively low
standard, especially the returns to the
wicket, while the running between
wickets is still atrocious. It is h-psd
that these facets of the game will re-
ceive more urgent attention from the
players for they command as much
importance in the final anaiysis as
batting and bowling.

A Draw Back

Tue tend.ncy of many of our
front-Line batsmen to pay back as the
first objective, and then go forward if
the bail seems weli up 1s a decided
drawback. In tie process they loose
rhymth and body conti) and lack
the proper footwork to get to the pitch
of the ball. So mary of them got
out playing tack to balls fairly up to
the bat that this fault has become
conspiciously proncunced. Any skiil-
ful manipulater of the ball, especially
one whe can cut them in late, would
spell the undoing of so many of our
top batsmen. This pre-emphasis on
back fcot play announces an atti:ude
‘and ¢ntent on survival rather than a
williegness to get on with the game.

I by no means suggest that bats-
mca snould lofi ind:scriminately into
the outfield country, but by the same
token it is sickening to watcied svp-
pcs d'y competent batsmen occupy-
ing the crease for a reasonebly time
and yet display a techi ique devoid of
any risk or adventure.

Sharp accurate passing, adept

anoverwhelming victory for Rock-

sided encounter mostly, for though
the girls in red and white fought
bravely they were ‘obviously no

opponents.

The shooting of Didier (33

porttrom Shillingford (z6 goals),

ation for Rockets — all in alla

PTLIGHT So They Say

By Bob & Ray

In celebrating the 4ooth

Anniversary of the birth of

William Shakespeare — fast
week, the world could mar-
vel anew rot at what the
famous playwrite-actor had
himself written but more
what he had caused to be
written. There are literally
hundreds 0 f books — about
Shakespeare. Many of these
books ignore the fact that
Shakespeare was a frofes-
sional actor before he became
a professional playwaight.

Ore of the most delight-
ful accounts isa book that
“attempts to briag 3 very
great man into the light of
ccmmon day...to show
William Shakespeare as his
contemporaries saw him,
rather than as the gigantic
and legendary figure he has
become since.”

LONG, OVERDUE



RECOGNITION OF GARIBBEAN

HE selection of Port-cf-Spain as the venue cf your Cor-

fercnce, to be followed later this year by the Meeting of

th- Commenwealth Patliamentary Association in Jamaica,

represents a leng overdue tecognition of the role cf the
Caribbean in the Commonwealth.

In extending to you a warm welcome to Triaidad, I
take this opportunity of expressing my siticere appreciation
of the courtesies extended to me on my recent tour of the
Governmenss of Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda,
Kenya, Tanganyika and the United Kingdom, and I am
certain that equal courtesy will be «xtended by the Govern
ment of Canada when JI arrive there tomorrew.

The Genzva Conference, preceded by the Loadon
meeting of Commonwealth Trade Minisiers, has afforded
us another welcome opportunity of Commonwealth con-
sultation whyzh will perhaps be -taken further at the Con
ference of Commenwealth Prime Ministers in July. -

_ The developing countries in particular will understand

our.growing concern over markeis, our insistence that our
historical associaticns should not lightly be discarded to our
_disadvantige, our advocacy of the cause of small cour tiies,
our: protest against the discrimination to which the Carib-
. bean-is-exposed ir: matters of economic assistance.

_ - -T hope that your stay in Trinidad will give you some
insight into Caribbean realities and-will help you to under-
stand our emphasis on our right to equal treatment whether
“in the Commonwealth or in the United Nations.



“achievements in self-help, our partnership between Govern:
_ ment and the private sector, our expansion of the demmocra-
“tic structure and. practices inherited from the Common-
“wealth, all’ these will, I hope, suggest that our role in the
“Commonwealth and the world need: not necessarily be
limited by our deficiency of land space or physical
resources. — 2 ; i

LT wish you.a pleasant stay in Trinidad and all success

_in your deliberations. |

ffter very careful consideration,
the Committee of Commonwaalth
Youth Sunday has decided ‘co re.

_ Occasion on which Commenwealth
Youth Sunday, as such, will be

lies behind the reaching of this deci-
sion is as folluws:—

Opinion had . been received Gera
various sources, both at home and
abroad, thet the original conception
of Commonweal Youth Sunday
required rethinking: A working
Party.was accordingiy » set up to de-
cide whether a change of policy was
‘necessazy, This
analysed the success achieved by
Commoenweilth Youth Sunday in
"recent years, particularly in the Unit-
ed Kingdom, and the following
prints emerged:-

(a) There seems to have been a
decline © in’. the observances in the
United Kingdom during the last
ten years; the cverall picture is an
Uneven ore, with a few traditionally
strong areas.

The Working Party were anxious
to avoid the observance slowly de-
clining and ceasing to be taken seri-
ously, and for this reason they felt
it better to take an incisive step,
while it was still held in repute.
For this reason, they recommended
to the Committee that Common-

discontinued after ‘the. 1964 observ-
ance.

Ass has’ alieady been stated, the
Co:nmittee accepted this recommen-

The question then arose as to how
the aims of Commonwealth Youth
Sunday could be perpetuated in the
future, as far as possible.
negotictions and meetings with The
Joint Commonwealth Societies,
Council. agreement has been re-ch-

take steps to bring Youth to a great-

and to lay stress onthe desirability
of a religious observance on Com-

HE month of May has siarted with a
flourish’ of trade union burgeoning
and a public holiday. It is fitting that
the seminar laid on by the Caribbean
Congress of Labour should be taking
place at this time. Lectures, processions,
admonitions and sport are the order of
May Day, and although we miss a certain
decorative pastoral gaiety — the mayfole,
the country dances in the open air, the
flowers on the .brows of several May
,— perhaps “in future years the
Unionists will elect their own Queen

the grass has never been so high (due to
soaking rains). ‘ Most of the leaders of the
old federation were “grass roots” people
themselves. They did not just spring up
overnight, but pushed upwards over long
years of unsung toil to form that desirable
but destructible forest tree. Many of them
patiently stumped the country telling the
people about the obvious advantages of
federation. That they were listened to and
undetstood was evidenced by the votes
they received. But what has happened
since that cutting down or mowing down
of the original federation, not only by two
great scythes but by a variety of little cut-
lasses? No attempt has been made to re-

FROM

GCL:

(Read At Celebrations on May Day 1964)

' Workers of the C ari b-
bean:

We extend greeting to you
from: the Free Democratic
Trade Unicon Movement of
the world.

Today the Trade Union
Movement celebrates — with
joy and gratitude this day
marking the international
charactec of solidarity of the
working. people, For us in
this part. of the world, the
struggles have been intensive,
but . we. stand firmly even

though at times we seem to ~

be matched against forces so
sttong..as to appear to be
irresistible. . “es
--We have, however, made
outstanding progress in the
field of collective bargaining
and ‘in organising «into the
wradé'union movement sub-
stantial numbers of* workers.
who in the past did not ‘find
it possible to be members
of the growing family -of
organised | workers. ‘Many
new agreements have been
completed,. gaining for our




wages, pensions, leave facili-
ties and. securing other im-
provements... Above all, the
trade union movement and
in ‘spite of all obstacles has
made.a sizeable’ contribution
in! maintaining the freedom
and liberty of our people.

We have intensified our
education programme3, and
it ‘is gratifying to report that
a very high percentage of the
trade union movement cf the
area has been able to orgarise
‘seminars and short courses for
‘members. "CCL is happy
to have been able to spear-
‘head this -great edwcational
drive. But our work would
be nought were it not fer the
,sustained assistance of ORIT-
ICFTU. which made it possi-
-ble for us -to establish our
education department.

On the bad side ot history,
we report to you today that
the Movement is engaged in
a life-atid-death struggle in
British Guiana — a struggle
against the attempt of the
Government to control the
labour movement.

In Jamaica our affiliate is
locked in a grim struggle in
an insistence on the applica-
tion’ of the principle that
workers should not be arbitra-
tily dismissed from their jobs.
We must bring to your



attent‘on alao, the sneak
efforts of the CLASC to
subveit our democratic trade
union struciure and their
attempts at creating confusion

and disharmony at a ume,

when unity should be the
watchword.

The Boiling Lake
Of Dominica

By G. B. Robson
B.Se., Ph. D.

prised recently to learn that the
famous -Boiling Lake had almosc

of any special importance.

son and it bas. always reappeared.

The Boiling Lake, in its normal
condition, is probably the largest
natiiral hot spring in the world. It
will surprise those who do not know
the mountains of Dominica that
although the island was first settled

y the British in 1759, and was, sur-
veyed in 1770 and ree the exis-
of the. Boiling Lake’ was not discov-
ered until 1875 — more than a
century after tiie island was first sett-
led Ly Europeans.:

About the time ef its discovery
the lake temperature was reported to
be 91 degrees Cent'grade, though a
year later in 1876 its temperature had:

"fallen 10 36 degrees. Five years after

the lake was discovered, an eruption,
or more properly a steam explosion,
took place near the Boiling Lake.
On 4th January £880 at z1.00 a.m
arumbling sound was
southern Dominica. and was repeat-
ed at intervals. Rain was threaten-
ing and it was then seen that a great
black cloud had risen from the
Grande Souftiere and was coming
towards Rosexu. At 11.03 a vio-
lent squall of wind passed over the
town and at 11,r0 the rain turned
to.a failof mud and volcanic sand
with a strong sulpharous smell.
Fifteen minutes later the sky had
cleared. Later both the ~Roseau
and the Point Mulatre rivers came
down in floods of muddy water, the
Roseau river rising twelve feet above
the usual level. .

The ash deposit was two feet
thick at the Grande Souftiere, a
quarter of an inch thick in Roseau
aud it also fell on the deck of a
schooner at sea five miles west of

‘ Roseav,, But-no ash fell at Pointe

Michel to the sowth, or Canefield to
the north. It was at first thought
tha’ this steam explosion had origin-
ated from the Boiling Lake, but on
t2th January Dr. H.A. Nicholls
visited the Grand Soutriere and es-
tablished chat the . explosion had oc-
cured from the old crater that is now
called the Valley: of » Desolation.

“THE NECKLACE

A Famous Skirt Story By GUY de MAUPASSANT—
4% : 1850-1893
Ve was one of those preity and charming young girls

who sometimes are born, as if by a slip of fate, into a
family of clerks. Shz had no dowry, no expectations, no
way cf being known, understood, loved, and wedded by
any rich and distinguished man; so she let herself be mar-

~ ried to a little clerk of the Ministry of Public Instruction.

_ She dressed plainly because she could not dress well,
but she was as unhappy as if she had really fallen from a
higker station; since with women there is neither caste nor
rank, for beauty, grace and charm take the place of birth
and breeding. Natural ingenuity, instinct for what is ele-
gant, a supple mind are theic sole hierarchy, and often
make of women of the people the equals of the very greatest
ladies.

Mathilde suffered ceaselessly. feeling herseif born to
enjoy all delicacies and all luxuries. She was distressed at
the poverty of her dwelling, at the bareness of the walls, at
the shabby chairs, the ugliness of the curtains. All those

things, of which another womai of her rank would never

_ even have been conscious, tortured her and made her angry.
The sight of the little Breton peasant who did her humble:
housework aroused in her despairing regrets and bewilder-
ing dreams. She thought of silent antechambers hung
with Oriental tapestry, illumined by tall bronze candelabra,
and of two great footmen in knee-breeches.’ She thought

of long reception balls hung with ancient silk, of the dainty
cabinets cox



‘gomfaming priceless curiosities and of little coquet-
tish perfumed reception rooms made for chatting at five
o'clock with intimate friends, with men famous and sought
after, whom all women envy and whose’ attention they all
‘desire. rs

_ When sh2 sat down to dinner, before the round table
covered with a tablecloth (in use three days) opposite her
husband, who uncovered the soup-tureen and declared with

~a-delighted*air, “Ah, the good soup! I don’t know any- look up your friend,

DOMINICA. HERALD

By a violent effort she conquered her grief and replied
in a calm voice, while she wiped away her tears:

“Nothing. Only I have no gown, and, therefore, I
can’t go tothis ball. Give your card to same colleague
whose wiie is better equipped than I am.”

He was in despair. He resumed:

“Come, let us see, Mathilde. How much would
it cost, a suitable gown, which you could use on_ other
occasions — someching very simple?”

She reflected several seconds, making ker calculations
and wondering also what sum she could ask withouc draw-
ing on herself an immediate refusal and a frightened ex-
clamation from the economical clerk. Finally she replied
hesitatingly: °

“T don’t know cxactly, but I think I could manage
it with four hundred francs.”

He grew a little pale, because he was laying aside just
that amount 10 buy a gun and treat himself to a little
shooting next summer on the plain of Nanterre, with
several friends who went to shoot birds there of a Sunday.

~ But he said:, “Very well. I will give you. four
hundred francs. And tzy co have a pretty. gown.”

[he day of the ball drew near and” Madame Looisel
seemed sad, uneasy, anxious. Her frock was.ready, how-
ever. Her husband said to her one evening:

‘What is the matter? Come, you have seemed vety
queer these last three days.”

“And she answered: ‘It annoys me not to have a
single piece of jewellery, not a single ornament, nothing — to
put on. I shall look poverty-stricken. I would rather not
go at all.” ao oe
~ "You might wear natural Aowers,” said. her husband.
‘‘they’re quite fashionable at this time of, year. ‘For ten
francs you can get two or three magnificent roses.”

She was not convinced. ‘*No; there’s nothing more
humiliating than to look poor among other women .who
are rich.”

We report that certaia

to which you listen with a sphinx-like smile while you are
eating-the wings of a perdrix.

She had no gowns, no jewels, nothing: And she

loved nothing but that. She felt made for that. She

would have liked so much to please, to beenvied, to be
charming, to be sought ‘after.

She had a friend, a former schoolmate at the convent,
who was rich, and whom she did tot like to see any more
because she fele so sad when she came home. ;

Bnt one evening her husband came home with a
triumphant. air'and holding a large envelope in his hand.

“There,” said he, “there is s»mething for you.”

She tore the’ paper quickly and drew out a printed
card which bore these words:

“The Minister of Public Institution and Madame

Georges Ramponneau request the honour of M. and.

MadameLoisel’s company at the palace of the Ministry

on Monday evening, January 18th.”

Instead of being delighted as her husband had hoped,
she threw the invitation on the table, crossly muttering:
“What do you wish me to do with that?”

“Why, my dear, { thought you would be glad.
You never go out, and this is such a fine opportunity. I
had great trouble te get it. Everyone wants to go; it is very
select, and they-are not giving many invitations to clerks.
The whole official world will be there.”

She looked at him with an irritated glance and_ said
impatiently: ‘And what do you wish me to put on my
back?” He had not thought of that. He stammered:

“Why, the gown you go to the theatre in. It looks
very well to me.” He stopped, distracted, seeing that his
wife was weeping. Two great tears ran slowly from the
corners of kér eyes towards the ‘corners of her mouth.
“What's the mattet?. What's the matter?” he asked.

that.” |. :
She uttered a ciy of joy: “True, I never thought of
it!” The next day she wert to her friend and told her of her
distress. Madame Forestier went to a wardrobe with a
mirrer, took out a large jewel box, brought it back, opened
it and said to Madame Loisel:
“Choose, my dear.”

She saw first sone bracelets, then a pearl necklace,
then a Venetian gold cross set with precious stones of
admirable workmanship. She tried on the ornaments
before the mirror, hesitated and could not make up her
mind to part with them, to give them back. She kept
asking: ‘‘Haven’t you any more?” |

Why yes, look further; I don’t know what you like.’
Suddenly she discovered, in a black satin box, a superb
diamend necklace and her heart throbbed with a immo-
derate desire. Her hands trembled as she took it. She
fastened it around her throat and was lost in ecstasy at her:
reflection in the mirror. Then she asked, hesitating, filled
with anxious doubt: .

“Will you lend me this, only this?”

“Why, yes, certainly.”

She threw her arms round her friend’s neck, kissed
her passionately, and then fled with her treasure.

are presently going around Domini-

thiak I would be deing right to
stand for the intecest of my colony
and speak for its advancement.

Since afer the election in 1961 I
wou'd often meet with criticisms on
the government; probably because it
1s ot the litdemen gioup, I am right
to have such belief because yots meet
the bulk of blamcs coming from
‘‘aristocrats” who continually perse-
vere to: make many believe that the
increases on shop goods are through
tne Labour Government.

Last week at Colihaut there was
aD.U.P.P. general meeting, They
were requested by questioners to detail
a two million dof'ars grant to Baren’s
government while in power, and the
answer was incomplete.

For the mere reason that Mr. Le-
blanc is presently leading the Gov-
ernment the big folks.are all plann-
ing strife, but my loyal duty is to
support any Government in pcwer
once it pursue a duty of justice and
love, nevertheless I am, and will al-
ways maintain myself to be of the
Labour Party of Dominica till I can
find fault with them. If the Opposi-

preaching, its people would work
smoothy with the Govt. till'the com-

mislead the people on _price-control

Noise About



Dear. Madam:

The first though: to
come to mind on reading about the
Bruce Robinson’s affair was, who
was so interested in blackening an-
ether man’s name and reputation as
to-go to the trouble of baving typed
many copies cf an 1:00-word atti-
cle for distribution in advance of the
breaking of this story? Who would
stand 19 profit most from the elimin-
ation of Mr. Robinson and Sylvania-
Fresh chickens itcom the Dominican
scene?

Certain conclusions are inescapa-
ble. Trade papers, b: they publish-
ed for the poultry business, the oak-
ing trade, the . steel industry, are
rarely read by others than those

~ interested in the specific industry.
How many readers of BAKERS
WEEKLY of IRON AGE, for example,
are there on Dominica? It seems
sel@evident that only persons con-
-neceed with the poultry business
could in this instance have had any
mctive for initiating the attack on
Mr. Robinson.

Did tae other Dominica sews-
paper have advance knowledge ot
the impending circulation of the
typed copies cf this “cffensive arti-
cle: Ifsvo, would it not have been
in the interest of good joucnalism
and unbiased reporting to have ob-
tained a statement from the “accus-
ed”, to have learned whether these
were truly che facts and all the facis,
rather than to have gone all out to
inflame the public mind against the
American Mr. Robinson?

Mrs. Narodney, who has hereto-
fore had our high regard as an indi-
vidual and a writer, seems now her-
self not to be free of error and mis-
conception. The writer of this letter



can personally recall not being able,
in 1961, to purchase anything but
inported, longeftozen chicken with-
out going to Gcodwill -— and then
wt was not always available. One
of the most widely read and fre-
quently quoted books on Dominica
speaks of the “scarcely suppertabie
heat” of Roseau. Perhaps the in-
tense heat of recent days is responsi-
ble for the. specious rage expressed
by Mrs. Narodmy anda certain
noisy, geoupof Dominica at Mr.

- Robinson’s remarks concerning
landslides, excessive rainfall aad
siowness of tue mails — ali indisput-
able facts. Are these people sc
sensitive about and aware of some
of the less pleasant aspects of Dom-
inica -- and some Dominicans —
“tha: they can tolerate 0 criticism?
Or 1s xt simply self-interest that has
moved this tiny if vociterouy ciciueut
to blow the whole matter up out of
all proportion?

Centainly any harm done Dom-
anica vy the paltry citculauon of the
offending article among poultry
growes in the Unitea States 1s
microscopic when viewed in the
light of distribution abroad of facts
concerning a vicious attack ona
foreigner in. Dominica whose chief
offence seems to be .. that, unwitting,
ly, he has trodden on some Domini-
can to-s.

One wonders what might be the
public reaction, were. Mrs. Natod-
ney’s business employers to state that
they share her confidence in the dis-
pensability of such ordinary safe-
guards as keeping property’ under

lock and key? Frequent reference .

ismade to Dominicans being cn
extremely proud people. It is never-

theless difficult to believe that with

cut considerable deliberate fanning
of the Hames public feeling in this
matter woula have been roused suffi-

ciently to permit the disgraceful street «

demonstrations of Friday 17th, April.
Were these the acts of the good and
gentle host — or even a good Chris-
uan?

Certainly all governments need
money — and more and .ore
Money ‘— to operate, But surely
customs duties are not the only possi-
ble source of such revenue for Dom-
inica! Even Antigua has recently
imposed a land tax which seems to
have been inaugurated with litle op-
position. Why could it not be
done here?) Ferhaps Dsminica too
couid then. be freed of the necessity
of “gettng a handout from Mother
England.”

in concJusien, to refer azains to
Mrs. Narodncy’s letter and pasticu-
larly the last paragraph, establish-
ment of the first sizeable and con-
stantly dependable production of
readily available fresh-killed poultry
has beer 0 less thaa an effort “‘to
help Dominica move forward.”

Pa Reem Se
Too Old?
Dear Mr. Editor,

I notice that so far no one
has suggested Eddie Robin-
son as captain ef Dominica.
{ have heard it mentioned
that he is an “old man”.

Is Robinson older chan
Ivan Shillingford, the Larti-
gue brothers, David Burton,

Eric Richards, or Sparrow
Winston when they played?

= —

Tlis is the first instance I
can recall w.cna player is
celled “old a: the age of 35.”

If R>binson was appointed
to capiain cur team, he will
nec have been called out

on
retirement as were the 1952
and 1954 captains. His

capabilities both as captaia
of his club and opening bats-
man for Dominica cannct be
questioned. There is no
one playing the game to-day
vho possesses half the know-
ledge cf the position that he
dues.

If the reason for his non-
selection would ke that his
services as “‘chief cook and
bottle washer” during the
Tournament could not be
dispensed with, I would
understand that! but sugges:
ing that he is too old is absurd.
Sit Frank Worrell was ap-'
pointed captain of the West:
Indies at the age of 36 and
has proved to be the best
captain ever.

If Robinson were to be
appointed, Mr. Editor, it
would be an honour ‘which
is 10 yeats overdue; but bet-
ter late than never.

Dramatic One-Wicket Victory Far

With conditions almost seventy-
five per cent better in that the
‘pitch at the Windsor Park played
truer and easy-paced, the tone of play
in the first trial match brightened
considerably, ending in a dramatic
one-wicket victory tor Lewis side.
The final scores were Shillingford’s
team Iso and 112. Lewis’ 1x
177 and 87,

The retuen to batting form of
Cecil Laiocgue 49 and 28 was a
particularly pleasing feature of the
batting. His meticulous defence,
stylish: hooks to mid wicket and
beautiful timing brought a degree of
character to his innings. Irvine
Shillingford promised good things in
both innings but fell when seem-
ingly on top. He made 37 and 23.
The-only other batting performance o

* note was a responsible 26 by Osborne
in his S€¥’s second innings.

iL .
Nesty, . Laurent Impressive
In the bowling department Black-
burn’s Arthur Nesty and S. M, A.’s
K, Laurent turned in creditable per-
formances. Nesty, in a beautiful
spell of fast bowling cent back Grell,
Shillingferd, John and Corriette thus
breaking the back of the slightly for-
midable batting airay. This petfor-
mance poses a further headache to the
selectors as there is very little to choc:
among the pacers vieing for selection.
Lautent, a highly successful bow-
ler; especially at Windsor Park dur-
ing the league season placed himself
in a most favourable’ position with a
worthy effort bagging nine wickets in
the match,

The fielding was of a relatively low
standard, especially the returns to the
wicket, while the running between
wickets is still atrocious. It is h-psd
that these facets of the game will re-
ceive more urgent attention from the
players for they command as much
importance in the final anaiysis as
batting and bowling.

A Draw Back

Tue tend.ncy of many of our
front-Line batsmen to pay back as the
first objective, and then go forward if
the bail seems weli up 1s a decided
drawback. In tie process they loose
rhymth and body conti) and lack
the proper footwork to get to the pitch
of the ball. So mary of them got
out playing tack to balls fairly up to
the bat that this fault has become
conspiciously proncunced. Any skiil-
ful manipulater of the ball, especially
one whe can cut them in late, would
spell the undoing of so many of our
top batsmen. This pre-emphasis on
back fcot play announces an atti:ude
‘and ¢ntent on survival rather than a
williegness to get on with the game.

I by no means suggest that bats-
mca snould lofi ind:scriminately into
the outfield country, but by the same
token it is sickening to watcied svp-
pcs d'y competent batsmen occupy-
ing the crease for a reasonebly time
and yet display a techi ique devoid of
any risk or adventure.

Sharp accurate passing, adept

anoverwhelming victory for Rock-

the girls in red and white fought
bravely they were ‘obviously no

opponents.

The shooting of Didier (33

porttrom Shillingford (z6 goals),

PTLIGHT So They Say

By Bob & Ray

In celebrating the 4ooth

Anniversary of the birth of

William Shakespeare — fast
week, the world could mar-
vel anew rot at what the
famous playwrite-actor had
himself written but more
what he had caused to be
written. There are literally
hundreds 0 f books — about
Shakespeare. Many of these
books ignore the fact that
Shakespeare was a frofes-
sional actor before he became
a professional playwaight.

Ore of the most delight-
ful accounts isa book that
“attempts to briag 3 very
great man into the light of
ccmmon day...to show
William Shakespeare as his
contemporaries saw him,
rather than as the gigantic
and legendary figure he has
become since.”
