INDICATIONS that approaches will be made to the

of the two gift ships Federal Maple and Federal Palm aroused
immediate reactions in certain-qilarters. Three onetime Fed-

suggestion had been promoted by Jamaica and Trinidad
representatives to the Regional Shipping Commission that
the ships be sold, because they are being run at a heavy
loss, and that two smaller ships be purchased for interisland
use instead.

disgust at the virtual disappearance of Pritish imperialism, at least in visi

that an immigration flood has aggravated and would continue to aggra-
vate the housing problem. In such urban areas as London and Birmir.g-

other countries, they have been running at a heavy loss, largely owing to
the multiplication of motor-cars and to some extent the increase in air

the coming General Election, to do more in the direction of public own-

John Shakespeare lived in a

tenant farmer and his brother
was a tenant farmer, but
John had no intention of

Miss Chute writes. "When
he left Snittersfield he pro,

is, by comparison, a weighty
volume written along the
lines that "proving that sime,

examines claims that deservee

DOMINICANS and indeed West
Indians with historic memories will
recall that on 9th June 1958 the then
Prime Minister of the West Indies rose in
the House of Representatives to move the
following resolution:
"That this Government records its
most grateful thanks for the generous
assistance received from the Canadian
Government, including the prompt and
t i m e 1 y provision of technical experts
already at work and still to come, and in
particular for the magnificent offer of a
merchant ship for use in the Regional
All cf us know that the 'magnificent
offer' was doubled in actuality:, we have
seen -with our own eyes the two lovely
Federal ships lying in our blue waters.
Some of us have travelled in them; we
have taken pride in the mere sight of them
- the only substantial souvenirs of lost
we learn that b se of the un,-
economic operation of these ships, describ-
ed as "too costly to operate in the present
conditions of the West Indies" (due large,
ly to lack of sufficient cargo) certain
spokesmen from Jamaica and Trinidad
have suggested that the Canadian Govern,
ment be approached and that the ships
might be disposed of-- sold out, in other
words ?nd other smaller ships substi,

augurated the service, feels about the

ways and means can and should be found
for us to keep our gift ships which
Canada gave to all the people of these
islands, big anj little, so that they may be
run on a properly economic basis; and
beg leave to make the following proposals.

First we admit that under present cir,
cumstances the ships are being run at a
heavy loss. But before taking the deci-
sive step of selling them, thus indicating
lack of confidence in the national and
trade future of these islands, other mea,
sures should be employed.
i. Port dues and charges on our own
ships could be waived; that would be in
effect a form of subsidy.
2. We should seek an extension of in,
tervisland and particularly inter-Trinidad,
Jamaica trade by reconsidering customs

union, even if partial; the run might (with
diplomacy) be extended to British Guiana;
it could be further augmented by visits to
the French islands of Martinique and
3. Provisions could be made immedi,
ately for augmenting the huckster trade.
We have known hucksters prepared to pay
air passages with their goods for trade
visits to Guadeloupe. Why should not
the Federal ships be used increasingly for
this form of transport? Let the working
people take full advantage of their own
shipping service.
4. When the ships are in port, why
not keep the bar and restaurant open,
using relief staffing? Let the islanders go
on board to spend their money and enjoy
their own merchant ships. Advertise!
Have local music and dances on board!
Let the ships make money while they are
in harbour, and bring a little amusement
of the local population! Reflect on the
happy visitors to the French liner Colombie;
and, it wiin e seen \howattractive such 'a
development could become, with the co-,
operation of local tourist boards.,
5. Publish the Economic Report made
to the Regional Shipping Council held last
week. Let us have all the facts about the
running expenses of these ships, so that
public comment can be, invited. We do
not think that ANY GO ERNMENT has the
right to dispose of these ships without re,
ference to the general population. Trini,
dad and Jamaica, being independent now,
can apply for direct financial aid ta Can,-
da; we poor smallislanders, being non-
indepe.dent, cannot do so.

We cannot say we were not waraied.
On March 28, I961, a Federal M.P. with
shipping experience (from Montserrat),
said it- the House: "Let _us make no
mistake, it is one thing to have knowledge
about shipping but it is another matter to
have knowledge of ships, for therein lies
the secret of whether good' proposals can
come out of a corporation for the econo,
mic running cf it." And a columnist
writirg in this very HERALD on March
14 this year pointed out the disabilities
under which the federal ships are now

To sum up: it would be a shameful
thing to throw back Canada's gift ships
and plan for a shrunken standard of com-
munications, just when expansion may be
around the corner and when the Carib,
bean is becoming less insular and more
globalminded, not only in trade matters
but in the even more precious field of
human interrelations.

Shakespeare After 400 Years
(From The Royal Bank of Cana-a Monthly Letter)
(Continued from last week)

A Man To Quote
The ultimate test of liter,
ary merit is survival, which
is the index to majority
opinion. While the great
military conquerors are but
ashes in an urn, Shakespeare
is still moving and breath,
ing in his writings, in our
everyday talk, and in the
life of the world.
It is not easy to go for a
day without quoting him,
because there are not many
subjects of importance that
he does not touch upon in
glowing phrases.
Hamlet gave" us: flaming

IV; "make assurance doubly
sure" and "'the milk- of
human kindness" came from
Macbeth; and so on through
the other plays: merry as the

trowel, an ill-favoured thing,
but mine own, what's in a

elbow room, every inch a

chance, a nine days' wonder,

world kin; and so on and
on. There are 4,000 quota,

and so onm

These phrases and tiles
came from the mint of Shake,
speare's creative genius fresh,
entertaining and alive, and
they remain so today.
A Man For All Ages
Shakespeare's plays were
not only for his own age and
ours, not for one nation or
language, but for all human,
ty. He planted one leg of his
compass in the Elizabet1'an
era and then with the other
swept the whole circumstance
of Time.
His plays will endure be,
cause they embody undying
states of minds. They hold
before us, now and forever,
a conception of human dig-
nity, a sense of the import,
ance of human passions, and
a vision of the amplitude of
human life. All this is em,
bodied in.Hamlet's assertion:
"What a piece of work is a
man,. how noble -in reason, in
form and moving how ex/
press and admirable, in action
how like an angel, in appre,
hension how like a god".
Shakespeare gi v e s us

cable to today's problems.
King Lear may be taken as a
tragedy of filial ingratitude, or
it may be taken as a lesson
that if you throw away your
weapons some less scrupulous
person will pick them up.
A new viewpoint about
Hamlet is given in Outlines oj
Shakespeare's Plays (Barnes &
Noble, In:., New York,
1945). Three men of differ,
J ent temperaments are faced
with the task of avenging the
n death of a father. How will
, each man solve the problem i
1 Hamlet, the man who think!
h without acting, dela y s;
e Laertes, the man who acts
1 without thinking, plunges;
* and the two tragic figures
perish on the same poisoned
, sword, leaving the kingdom
g to Fortinbras, the cool-headed
* balanced man who plans and
acts in due proportion and ai
e appropriate times.
There are, too, lessons o:
tolerance. Cymbeline, A Win,
' ter's Tale, and The Tempes
f are comedies of reconciliattot
d and forgiveness and the re.
storation of lost happiness.

A Famous Short Story By GUY de MAUPASSANT-
Concluded from last issue
The night of the ball arrived. Madame Loisel was
,i gteat success. She w-s prettier than any cthti worian
present, elegant, graceful, smiling and filled with joy. All
mie men looked at her, asked her name, sought to be intro-
duced. All t'ec arach-s of the Cabinet wished to w.,tz

Shl darced v ith rapture, with passion, intoxicated
by pleasure, forgetting all in the triumph of her beau.y, in
the ,loiy of her success, in a sort of cloud of happiness
composed of all this homage and admiratior, and of that
sense of t-iumph which is -o sweet to woman's heart.
She left the ball abuut four o'clock in the morning.
Her husband had been sleeping since midnight in a little
deserted anteroormI with three other gentlemen whose wives

She threw over her shoulders the wraps of common
life, the-poverty of which contrasted with the elegance of
the ball dress. She felt this and wished to escape so as njt
to be remarked by the other women, who were envelop,
ing themsel e.s in costly furs.
Loisel held her back. saying: "Wait a bit. You will
catch cold outside. I vill call a cab."
!lt she did not listen to him and rapidly' descended
'the stairs. When they reached th street they could not

cabinet passing dt a distance.
They went towards the Seine in despair, shivering
with 'cld. At last they found on the quay one of those
ancient night cabs which, as though they were ashamed to
show their shabbiness during the day, are never seen round

ministry at ten o'clock that morning.
She removed her wraps before the glass so as to see
herself once more in all her glory. But suddenly she
uttered a cry. She no longer had the necklace round her
"What is the matter with you?" demanded her hus-
band, already half undressed. She turned distractedly
towards him.
"I have-I have-I've lost Madame Forestier's neck,
lace," she cried.' He stood up, bewildered.
"What! how? Impossible!"
They looked among the folds of her skirt, of her cloak,
in her pocket, everywhere, but did not find it.
"You're sure you had it on when you left the ball?"
he asked.
"Yes, I felt it in the vestibt le of the minister's house."
"But if you had lost i: in the street we should have
heard it fall. It must be in the cab."
"Yes, probably. Did you take his number?"
"No. And you -- didn't you notice it?"
They looked, thunderstruck, at each other. At last
Loisel put en Es clothes "I shall go back on foot," said
he, "over the whole route, to see whether I can find it."
He went out. She sat waiting cn a chair in her ball
dress, without strength to go to bed, overwhelmed, without
any fire, without a thought. Her husband returned ,about
seven o'clock. Hi! had found nothing. He went to
police headquarters to the newspaper offices to offer a re,
ward; he went to the cab companies everywhere in fact
whither he. was urged by the least spark of hope.
She waited all day, in the same condition of mad fear
before this terrible calamity.
Loisel returned at night with a hollow, pale face.
He had discovered nothing.
"You must write to your friend", said he, "that you
have broken the clasp of her necklace and that you are
having it mended. That will give us time to turn round."

High Jump
Mcst good high jumpers are tall
and long legged but not all: a
shorter athlete with good springing
power can also excel. The secret
o success apart from natural ability,
lies in the skilful 'se ofoze of tne
recognized techniques. The Sciss-
ors, modified Scissors and -.astern
Cut-off are rarely seen in top-class
jumping so the two most popular
styles will be described here, the
Western Roll and the Straddle.
The general idea of high jumrp-
ing is to project the centre of gravity
of the body as high into the air as
possible and then with convenient
body distribution to make it pass
over the bar as low as possible.
Approach:-- The approach should
consist of between 9 and 5 strides, 7
being the ideal. It should be a
fluent run-up with no hop and
skips; over the last 3 to 4 strides,
there should be a marked acceleration
with the hips sinking slightly in
preparation for the spring. The
last stride is long with the heel of
the foot striking the ground first-
SThe body is then leaning backwards
f and is slightly inclined towards the
bar; but this incline must not be
exagger ted, [he direction of the
approach varies from jumper to
Y -Buprtt.vuu,4 aly-about an an-
gle of 4o degrees to the bar. It
should not be. head on or too acute.
Take off:- The' take-off is of
paramount importance and cannot
be over emphasised. For both styles
described here the take-off is from
the leg nearest the bar. .A ler the
1 long last stride the unjumpmg leg is
swung through vigorously and high.
" A wide splits position is essential
e and th- leading leg should be as
, as possible when the other
S leaves the ground. It is the long
last stride and the splits position
that enable a convention of forward
momentum to upward momentum.
1 The head should be kept erect and,
, with th. chest, shoulders and arms,
l be lifted as the leading leg comes
d up.
Clearan e:- The greatest heights
are reached when the jumper
y achieves a good layout over the
r bar i.e, when his centre-ocgravity is
as low over the bar as possible.
f The Western Roll and Struddle are
f the best techniques in achieving this.
l1 The 'Roll' is done with the side to
g the bar and has a higher cen'trecf-
w gravity than the Straddle which is
r done with the chest facing the bar
k ar.d the body, in effect, 'draped'
over it. The Srraddle is therefore
- more efficient but it is also more
difficult to master th.n the roll.
he Western Roll:- In effect this is
c merely a hop over the bar with the
cody paralled to it as it clears.
or The take-off is with the leg nearest
ty the bar and, if this is the left leg,
se the layout is'to the left, i.e. the body
n rotates to the left. The body coup-

the inside arm, in this case the left,
leading the way over the bar. I he
jumping leg is bent at the knee and
tucked in close to the thigh of the
leading leg.
The Straddle:- With the body
'draped' over the bar this technique
gives a lower centre of gravity in
the layout position, The che:;t and
stomach face the bar and the inside
arm and shoulder and the head
have .cleared it and are below it
when the jumping leg is also below
the bar but yet to clear. The app-
roach and the take off are similar to
the Western Roll except that the
Straddle jumper employs a more
pronounced straight leading leg
