~ ESTABLISHED 1955

DON’T SELL THE P
Dr. O’Loughiin To Investigate? |
NDICATIONS that approaches will be made to the
Canadian Government for a go-ahead signal to dispose
of the two gift ships Federal Maple and Federal Palm aroused
immediate reactions in certain-quarters. Three onetime Fed-
eral M.P.s, Mrs. Phyllis Shand Allfrey of Dominica, Mr.’
J.M.D. (Evans) Bousquet of St. Lucia and Mr. Milton
Cate of St. Vincent, ccnsulted each other by telephone and
‘and agreed that,they would, firmly resist such a‘‘‘deal”., The
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.

Mr. Bousquet said he
could be quoted as “being
adamantly opposed to such a
move’. He agreed wich Mts.
Allfrey that every — effort
should be made to place the
West Indian Sipping ser-
vice on a proficable basis, and
that the ships should be _re-
fained for tie use sma—ocne-
fit of the island populations,
for, the carriage of fre’gnt ad
the comfort of tourists and
travellers, and that it would
be insulting to Canada to sell
out these magnificent gift ves-
sels. (Sce editorial, p. 6).

Meanwhile it is understood
that Dri Carleen C’Lou-
glin, Director of the Insti-
tute of Social and Econemic
Research, U.W.I. (Barba,
dos), is likely to make a sur-
-vey oa behalf of the Regional

Council of Ministers to in
vestigate questions of costs
and feasibility of continuation

Hen. Mil‘oa Cato, Leader
of the St. Vincent (Opposi-
tion) Labour Party said he
welcomed the news of the
proposed survey by Dr.
©’Loughlin and thoughi it
would be a pity to sell the
ships: no acrion should be
taken to dispose of them pen-
ding the examination of her
repott.

While in conversation
with Mr, Bousquet, who was
on his campaign tour in pre-
paration for St. Lucia’s gen-
er] election of June 25, Mrs.
‘Allfrey asked her ex-col-
league about his prospects.
Mr. Bousquet replied confi-
dently that he was certain to
win. é

| Union Split Harms Dominica --—

— Say GC. C. L. Speakers

Aa the heartening strains of “Solidarity Forever” on

May Day, street-corner listeners who missed hearing
wr. Antheny F. Joseph (Iecal President of CLASC-
affiliated T. C. C. W. U.) speak fer over two' hours. last
Wednesday wight, when he counter-atracked against. recent
C. C. I. pronouncements,’ heard Mr. A. EF. Joseph’s
statements summarised and attacked ata lively D. T. U.
gathering addressed from the Union office - on Thursday.

Although Mr. B. Brent- :

nol Blackman of C. GC. L,
declared against “‘the use of
vulgar personal abuse at my
age’, and said Mr, A. F,
Joseph was not significant
enough to waste. ‘90 ma‘.
words on, Mr. Josepn was.
mention in virtually every
other utterance. Sais

“Quarrel With Boss — Not

_ Fach Other

Admitting (as final
speaker) that he had said “the
T. U. movement in Domin-
ica had been wasting a lot
of time aad energy rowing
‘with each other — wheteas
if they had spent such energy
towing with the bosses the
workers would be better off,”
Mr, Blackman picked on
Joseph’s denouncement of
his philosophy as_ being
materialistic Socialism and the
T. C. C. W. claim that it
would not have any rows
with bosses. The workers
in Dominica, said Blackman,
were the poorest-paid in any
W. I. territory. =D. T. U.
officers had been put én the
carpet that day and were
going to “do some real work
and raise hell on behalf of
the workers in the next few
months®: that was their job.

Blunt Words

The speeches of the visit-
ing trade unionis:s could not
be described as delicately
phrased, but their bluntness
evoked pleasure from most of
the audience. Words like
‘fascist, ‘communist’, ‘split-
ter-traitor’ etc. were frecly
thrown about.

Chairman Duff James
(Gen. Sec. Technical &
Allied Workers Union of

St. Vincent): spoke leagthily,

‘vividly and somewhat repeti-

ously between other adv
dresses. He said’ he had
talked to Sir Garnet Gordon
that day .and -visited the

‘banana sheds. >: \Werning of

forthcoming aut o matic
labour-saving devices which
would cause unemployment
in certain islands; Mr: James
caid that the unions canld
protect their members in
such. cases by negotiating
severance pay and © pensions.
Splitting or. fragmentation
of the local union. (described —
as a matter which . strength-
ened the employers’ hand)
was a major hindrance to
good terms for the workers,
several speakers emphasized;
two of the orators stated that
if the Dominican workers
closed tneir ranks they would
be supported in times of
crisis not only by waterfront
and other CCL workers in
the region, but by powertul
unions in Britain, through

the ICFTU.
’ ~ All Christians

Several of the guest
speakers, harking back to
Mr. Joseph, declared their
religious allegiances, one say~
iug: “don’t prostitute our
Church tor devilish ends”;
another — “I go to Mass so
regularly, I must be pension-
able!” Elderly exzschool-
teacher Mrs. Ellen: Peters of
Montserrat madé her quiet
contribution to. this issue.

Promises vere made by
Blackman and James that

a three-day referendum on

asked to say “tyes or “‘no to
Prime Minister Borg Ollivier’s

, There is evidence that Conservatives would suffer a severe defeat at a
“General Election and Labour be retarned with about a majority of about
100 seats, — Says Rev. R.W, SORENSEN M.P.

(Extracts from his article in Indian and Foreign
Review)

“The Outlook in Britain
A Labour View”

.... Som: very right-wing Tories harbour within their breasts, bitter
disgust at the virtual disappcarance of Rritish imperialism, at least in visi-
ble concrete form, whereas the Labour Party has become associated with
the concept of the Commonwealth, so much so that it has provided
material for influential propaganda against it for not endorsing the Gove
ernment’s restriction of imm:gration from the Commonweaith. Undoubt-
edly - a majority evcn of Labour supporters here agree with the Govern-
ment, not out of racial prejudice, but because of a not unfounded fear
that‘an immigration food has aggravated and would continue to aggra-
vate the housing problem. In such urban areas as London and Birmirg-
~hem the influx of hundreds of thou.ands of overseas workers and families
has resulted in their wretched ovet-crowding in slum dwellings, any new
accommodation being reserved for British familics who have been waiting
for this for marg years.

Â¥e.cannct be said that increased electoral suppost for Labour is par-
ticularly concerned with socia'ist theory, even if the public sector of che
British economy and comprehensive public services, including the Nation-
al Health Service, are not only taken for granted, but evoke strong resis-
tance to. any contracti68; On the whole it is felt that the extent to which
public contrel, ownership ar.d enterpris: has been implemented has been
justified. No one suggests the denationalisation of mining, electricity, gas
and’ some other cndertakings, noc of the railways, even though as in most
other countries, they have been’ sunniag at a heavy loss, - Jargely owing to
the multiplication of motor-cars and to some extent the increase in air
travel. But prudently the Labour Party does not propose, if returned at
the'caming General Election, to do more in the direction of public own-

ership than to re-naticnalise stecl, to seek powers to establish national fact- J
origs or industries in depressed areas and to secure some directive control.

in $uch industrial-concerns where this. would be nationally and economt-
cally advantageous. “What-it does stress ‘s the imperative need for drastic
technical modernisation inorder to eniure substantial per capita increase
in productivity that-would avoid inHation and enable social services to
expane and incomes to increase, Itt is for this that the Labour Party will
nest,

Fiaroid Wrilson’s Labcur Party leadership has wotr-aue
among Labour supporters and to some extent beyond these for he has
immense debating skill anda first class mind. The Party presents a
sense of unity and is in goo heart, its former fissions having disappeared
from view not simply because of Hugh Gaitskell’s tragic demise a year
ago, but both because of an intzrnal Party realisation of the necessity of
unity and.the emergence cf citcums-ances respecting cuclear weapons that
have at least temporarily banished letha) atmospheric tests and have dimin-
ished the need for possessing these weapons. Nevertheless, it is probable
that Conservative insistenee on British ownership of a contingent contribu-
tion of nuclear w.afons is a powerful card Conservatives will play at the

"General Election. .
During the cempaiga, the Conservative Party will not assert an im
pressive legislative record: int the lifttime of its Government. but it will al-
so commend to the electoraté new. plans for social betterment and educa-
tional expansicn, the necessity’ of strong military defence (including a

~ British nuclear deterrent), vigorous encouragement of private enterprise in

preference to dangerous extensions of public ownership, preservation of
valuable traditicnal institutions and the alleged outs:-nding capacity of its
leaders.

The Labour Party will criticise the Conservative Government’s errors
and failures (as is customary for an Opposition the world over), claim
that its plans for better social services are superior to those of the other
Parties, urge that its proposals for far-reaching modernisation of the econo-
my alone will meet admiited national need, renationalise the steel industry
and infiltrate public control and direction into other industries, advance
schemes for curtailing exploitation in land and house rents or sales, give
assurances of imaginative initiativ.s for internatiznal co-operation and
peace and assert the duty of integrating Commonwealth partnership.

The-Liveral Party will demand legislation for a form of Preportional
Representation, extol the benefits of co-partnership in public ownership
(including steel), share the . Labour Party’s repudiation of the need of
Britain posséssing its own. nuclear deterrent, support many social reforms
and stress the principles of liberty and freedom.

\So They Say
By Bob & Ray
(Concluded from last week)

The name of this fascina-
ting book. is, simply:
“Snakespeare of Londen”
and it’s written Ly a woman,
Marchetie Chute.

idiss C huie’s opening
chapter on the playwright’s
father, John Shakespeare,
prepares the reader by setting
the time and condivons that
were present just prior to son
William’s birth in Stratford-
on-Avon, England. With
this cleariy defined and docu-
mented the reader is well
prepzred for the flowing
story that follows and when
ke has finished the tiny 361-
page book it is as though the
clock has been turned back
and that the reader was there,
with William Shakespeare
all the while!

Stratford-on-Avon was
one of the largest towns in
Warwickshire 400 years ago
ardamong the _ busiest.
ohn Shakespeare lived in a
pleasant little village of Snit-
tetfield, four miles to the
north. ‘His father was a
tenant farmer and his brother
was a tenant farmer, but
John had no intention of

Miss Chute writes. ‘*Whcen
he left Snittersfield he opro-
bably had no higher ambi-
tion than to become a suc-
cessful business man in Strat-
ford; but before John
Shakespeare died he had
achieved the highest political
office in town, and had_ been
a justice of the peace, a land-
owner and a gendsman with
a coat of arms.”

Iu the telling of this story,
Miss Chute weaves son Wil-
liam carefully into it; descric-
ing with great talen: the
Stratford that John Shake-
speare knew.

The book ‘The Shake-
spearean Ciphers Examined”
by William F. and Elizabeth
S. Friedman published by
Cambridge University Press
is, by comparison, a weighty
volume written aiong the
lines that “‘proving that some-
body else wrote Shakespeare
has become a popular
pastime.” The book
examines claims that “deserve
a fair hearing.” The Fried-
mans are professional crypto-
logists and they have mide a
lifelong study of ciphers that
allegedly disprove Sh-ke-
pearean authorship. Soime
of their “evidence” is indeed
interesting and at times one

has a feelings that the cryptic

\



messages hidden oa old
gravestones, in the texts cf
hundreds of books in
old manuscripts, ec.
have a greater iuterest read
“straight” thao by “interpréta-
tion.”

For the very busy _ person,
the College Outline Series on
“Outlines of Shakespeare’s
Plays” are a fast way to
absorb this amazing maavof-

background material and

Complete Works of Shake-
speare” (1527 pages) with a
preface by Christopher
Morley.

The bsok “Shakespeare”
originally written in French,
by Jean Paris is fairly new
and ‘ brings much of the
Renaissance into the life of

“THE BIRDS”

ORE terrifying and mysterious

than any film he has ever done

in any of kis pre vious episodes,

Aifted Joseph Hitchcock’s “The

Birds” brings a sensational shock and
suspense to the screen.

Although “The Birds” has no
musical background, it is still a
masterpiece. Mauay horrific movies
depict scenes with intense thundery

. Musical suspense, bloodshed, vam-

pires and nightmares. There is a
great contrast in Hitchcock’s work.
He actually deals with life’s natural
resources. His only disadvantage 1s
he always leaves the audience in
doubt at the end of his film.

‘In the little community of “Mo-
daga Bay’—U.S.A., where lawyer
Mitch “Rod Taylor’ sperds every
week-end although stationed in San
Francisco; Lilia “Tippi Hedrin” in-

~-fluenced by Mitch’s handsome: and

The first plague of the Birds at
tacked at Cathy’s paity, causing death
and injuries to many chilaren and the

OMINICANS — and indeed West
Indians — with historic memories will
“recall that on oth 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
timely provision of technical expeits
already at work and still to come, and in
particular for the magnificent offer of a
merchant ship for use in the Regional
Shipping Services.”

All ef us-know that the ‘magnificent
offer’? was-doiibled dn 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
nationhood. .

ow we Jearn that. 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 — and other smaller ships substi-
tuted. We wonder what the Itinidad
High Commissioner in Canada, who as
Federal Minister of Commmnications inv
augurated the service, feels about - the
matter.

In our view this sale would be 2 shan.e-
ful and insulting thing to do. “1 h2 sug-
gestion comes from those “Units” which
were first to abandon the Federal ship of
State. We resist it. We believe that
ways aud means can and should be found
for us to keep our gift ships which
Canada gave to all the people of these
islands, big and little, so that they may be
run on a propedly economic basis; and
beg leave to make the following proposals.

First we admit that under present cit-
cumstances the ships are being run at a

heavy loss. But before takiog 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.

1. 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-
ter-island and particularly inter-Ttinidad-
Jamaica trade by reconsidering customs

union, even if partial; che run might (with
diplomacy) be extended to British Guiana;
it could be further augmented by visits to
the French islands of Martinique and
Guadeloupe.

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?
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 amz1sement
of the local population! Reflect on the

and, it Will be seen ow attracuive su
development could become, with the co-
operation of local tourist boards.

5. Publish the Economic Report made
to the Regional Shipping Council held lase
week. Let us have all the facts about the
running expenses of these ships, so that
public comment can be, invited. We do

_ pot think that ANY GOVERNMENT 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 to Cana-
da; we poor small-islanders, being noti-

“ indepeadent, cannot do so.

We cannot say we were rot war.ed.
On March 28, 1901, a Federal M.P. with
shipping experience (from Montserrat),
said in 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 ofa corporation for the econo-
mic running of it.’ Anda columnist
writirg in this very HERALD on March
14 this year pointed cut the disabilities
under which the federal ships are now
operating.

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 waen expansion may be
around the corner and when the Carib-
bean is becoming less insular and more
global-minded, not only in trade matters
but in the even more precious field’ of
human interrelations.

7-G.6.W.U.
Complaint |

The Editor,
I write as a member of
the T.C,C.W.U. about May Day.

Everything was fine until Mr.
Blackman of C.C.L. got people
annoyed when he said that there
should be one Union. He also was
unwise enough to suggest that cer-
tain people want to divide the
workers by religion, class and so on.

. Has Mr. Blackman told the
unions in the other places — espec-
ially B.G. his home that there are
too many unions there? I guess not
because most of them are perhaps
affiliated to C.C.L. so that is al-
right. .. ~

Mr. Dyce i think, is a gentleman
for while his May Day Letter in the
Herald attacks the CLASC as
creating disenity, he saw to it that
the Secretary of the Dominica
Trade Union did not read that
part at the May Day Rally.

As faras I know, the TCCWU
is trying to havea Trade Union
Council in Dominica for unity but
the CCL has told the Dominica
Trade. Union to stay out of that.
Is this the unity of the workers
that the C.C.L. speaks about < nd is
it that kind of unity they say
CLASC is trying to subvert and

‘confuse? If it is, and Mr, Blackman

has shown’ it clearly, then” the
; Wty Tighe beca

CCL seems te want.a monopoly
to serve North American interests
as is being done in Mexico. now
and was recently exposed by the
CLASC.

I think the

Unioa has had

Domi‘nica Trade
sufficient troubles

‘over the past years for them to now

allow the C.2,L. to separate them-
selves from. the other Untons in
Dominica.

it is the C.C.L. that does not
want unity in the’ true sense. The
unity they speak about is where all
unions be long to C.C.L. ana
C.C.L. alone.

Is that fair? Is that honest? Is
that democratic?

Workers are warned that they
should think well on these things
and demand local co-opecation
among all the Uni-ns for the good
of Dominica.

OS ss Ta
Why He Resigned
Dear Madam,

The apncuncement in
the HERALD of the 25th April of
my resignation of membership in the
Dominica Unit:d People’s Party may
be news with interest perhaps only to
Political rivals of that party but defi-
cient in content ‘as an item of infor-
mation in this mischief-filled island.

In my letter to the Secretary of the
Party I wrote; —

‘Tam sending a copy of this
Jetter to the Organiser of the
Star’ Party, the policies of
which Party, I am likely to
support in fature. I de this,
however, not for any publicity,
which neither I nor this letter
is important enough to get, but
as evidence of my release from
allegiance to the D.U.P.P. end
any obligations arising ‘tom
membership.”

“Policy” then is the reascn for my
resignation. I see too much that re-
quires reform in Dominica for'me to
waste time in giving support ‘o any
patry or orgauization with policies
moulded in castbound traditions and
conceived in the o!d belicfs and sys-
tems that led us into and now leave
us in the state in which we are today:
In my conception, the needs of this
time demand a complete breakaway
from the past and the formulation of
new beliefs, new values and approa-
ches, new formsand systems for our
society and national life.

The: Politicz] Paty I will sepport
in the future must be one with a vis-
ion and a philosophy of life, imbued
with a crusading spirit and sense of a
Missioner carrying a message to men
and women — young and old,
learned and unlearned, prince and
Feasant — and not a mere vote-sali-
citing machine and copy-book poli-
cy maker,

Yours faithfully

LONDON LETTER



SAIURDAY, MAY 9, 1964

BY GRAHAM NORTON

Clutching At

‘Straws.

_ The announcement by Siz
“Alec Douglas-Home that
Britain is nct to have the

General Election uniil the
autumn after all, has led to a
lull in the campaign between
the two main parties. The
tension that must build up
when battle is imminen: has
gone frem us. Instead, we
find a state of siege, a great
game of trench warfare.
Both sides have taken up
their position, and will be
careful-during the next six
months not to be tempied
out into danger.

The Labour Party in
particular has learnt its lesson.
In previous ejections the party
has issued detailed statements
of its proposals. These have
then provided the Conserva-
tives with fine targets at
which to fir The best
form of defence, the. Tories
know, is attack. And the
Labour Party, even - more
foolishly, instead of ignoring
this tactic, and allowing it to
peter out, have in the pas
leapt to tne aid of their pre-
cious policies, The delight-

ee ives then carried
the war into their enemies’
camp, and uirce times have
emegedvictorious. A
government in an election
campaign expects to defend
its cecord, including what it
has not done. To be relieved
of this burden is an act of

political charity for which no
teward-excepting o fi c e!—
‘could be too great, Mr.
Wilson however is neither
generous to his opponents nor
lacking in tactical skill; and
he means to wir. Under
his orders, the party stands
pat on its policy as laid dewn
in 1967. New cetailed prov
posals are avoided, and a
continued criticism of the
government, its actions and
its men, never ceaces.
For Sir iXlec, the post.
ponement of the election is a
breathing space during ‘which



understandably unenthasias-
tic. Ahead of the Govern-
ment lie probable balance-of
payments difficulties after the
sum met, international
troibles in Cyprus and in
the Aden Federation, and
the demand of the minority
White governmen: in Sou-
thern Rhodesia that they
shall be givea independence,
and, if not, the threat that
they will declare themselves
so. This would pose the
gtavest problem yet for the
Commonwealth. Can Bri-
tain steel herself in that case
to intervene by force? If she
does not, then the Aftican
nations of the ‘Common-
wealth will in all probability
cease to have any regard for
their connection with it.

The Government must
face dangerous situations, and
they will be exposed to
withering fire at home from
which thete is mo escape.
This will continue to come
not only from Labour, but
also from many of the most
influential newspapers, and
even from. the ranks of the
Conrervative Party itself.
In The Times; a rece:st series
of aricles by ‘A’ Conserva-
five prov.acd some. of the.
most devastating criticism of
tne party ii recent years, and
was cbviously by an M, P.
Mr. Enoch Powell has made
several scathing speeches on
the Government’s policies, or
lack of them. If there is
weakness on Southern Rho-
desta, then Mr. Macleod will
not keep silence, and he will
be joined by many progres-
sive young Members.

One caiinot help observ
ing that tue Prime Minister’s
party is not united, that his
showing nas done little to
rally its cleverest members in
the House to him by reason
of any confidence in his
powers. As the months go

Gn The Last Regional Ccuncil Meeting

@ The Workers’ Voice (Antigua) April 19, 1964

_ Many of us ate very anxious to learn something about the Confer-
ence of the Regional Council of Ministers now taking place in Barbados.
So far up to this present time very little news is availavle for publication.
There are (sic) scme news in regards to the Eastera Caribbean (u recy,
but this thing bad already vgreed to at a previcus meeting of the Council. N

Nevertheless we hold these truth in the absence of news from them,
that all men are crea:ed equal, that they are endowed by their creator with
certain unalieable rights, that among these are Ife, liberty and th: pursuit
of happiness. That jc secure these tights, government are instituted
among man did it 1s the right of every people to institute their own go-
vernment which seems most likely to affect theit owa safe’y and happi-
ne $.

It seems to us however that there are substantial diffcrences of opin-
icn on that extent, as many of the delegates Lave already. bent on the idea
of having a very strong central gevernment which may affect many of the
Islands policy in pursuing the welfare of their people without interference
from out:ide. rs ee

Strong elements of jealousy may confront many delegates whore intention is
to protect the advance march already in progress in theit, Island terrat-sry.

government with supreme power in all matters which concern the im-
provement of their teruitories which may develop into. majce points of

their home states and their special interest. fee
All of the territories have almost the same needs and similar idea
abouc freedom and trade atd none cvn act alone to sucessfully handle
their own problems. But the fear exists ameng some that, with the idea
of a strong central government they would be und:r the the thumb of the
larger Island who would tend to dictate which area should be first to
develop industrially. '
Basing our opinion on imagination by not having news, tt may ve that our
thoughts are tight with the position as it stands in the conference reom.
But bedtso-of not all of the Islands ate in need of development. | All
of theme-need it right away, for all of them have been neglected in the
past, and it is not possible that any of the delegates are going to commit

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 cur
everyday talk, and in the
life of the world.

It is not easy to go fora
day without quosing him,
because there are. not many
subjects of importance that
he does not touch upon in
glowing phrases.

Hamlet gave” us: flaming
youth, in my mind’s eye, to
the manner born, the prim-
rose path, it smells to heaven,
there’s the rub, method in
his madness, brevity ‘is the
soul of wit, cudgel thy brains
mote matter and less art,
neither a borrower nor a lend-
_ér be, this mortal coil,” yeo-
‘man’s service. “Pomp and
circumstance” came , from
Othello, with a dozen. more;
“the dogs of war” ftom Julius



the devi : dich
-has eaten me out of house
and home” are ftom. .Henry
IV; “make assurance doubly
sure’ and “the milk - of
human kindness” came from
Macbeth; and so on through
the other plays: metry as the
day is long, laid on with a
trowel, an ill-favoured thing,
but mine own, what’s in a
name? a fool’s paradise,
elbow room, every inch a
king, the wheel is come full
circle, throw cold water on it,
play fast and loose, the main
chance, a nine days’ wonder,
a spotless reputation, some-
thing in the wind, one touch
of nature makes the whole
world kin; and so on and
on. There are 4,000 quota-
tions and extracts in the Dic-
tionary of Shakespeare Quota-
tions. by. D. C. Browning
(Every.nan’s Reference Libra-
ty;-19$3).

Hundreds of books heve
iaken their titles from Shake-
speate: Crack of Docm,
Tomorrow and Tomorrow,
All Our Yesterdays, Brief
Cardles, The Undiscovered
Courtry, Rosemary for Re-
membrance, Dear Brutus,
Not in Our Stars, Strange
Bedfellows, Brave New
World, The Web of Life,
Gaudy Night, The World
My Oyster, Valiant Dusi,
‘and so on,

Gaesar; “hearts of gold, give 5

These phrases and _ ticles
came from the mint of Shake-
speare’s creative genins 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
curs, not for one nation or
language, but for all humani-
ty. He planted one leg of his
compass in the Elizabct>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 emi-
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 gives 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 of
Shakespeare’s Plays (Barnes &
Noble, Inc, New York,
1945). Three men of differ-
ent temperaments are faced
with the task of avenging the
death of a father. How will
e.ch man solve the problem ?
Hamlet, the man who thinks
without acting, delays;
Laertes, the man who acts
without - thinking, plunges;
and the two tragic figures
perish cn the same poisoned
sword, leaving the kingdom
to Fottinbras, the cool-headed
balanced man who plans and
acts in due proportion and at
appropriate times.

There are, too, lessons of
tolerance. Cymbeline, A Win-
ter’s Tale, and The Tempest
are comedies of reconciliation
and forgiveness and the ree
storation of lost happiness.

The 400th Anniversary

This year all England is
going Elizabethan in celebra-
tion of the 4ooth anniversary
of Shakespeare’s birth.

| THE NECKLACE ..
A Famous Short Story By GUY de MAUPASSANT—
1850-1893
Concluded from last issue
The night of the ball errived. Madame Loisel was

a gteat success. She wvs prettier than any ctha woman
present, elegani, graceful), sm‘ling and filled with joy. All
the men Icoked at her, asked her name, sought te be intro-
duced. All ure attaches of the Cabinet wished to waltz
with ur. She was remarked by the min.ster himsetf.
She darecd v ith rapcure, with passion, intoxicated
by pleasure, forgetting ali ia the triumph of her heau-y, in
the slory of her success, in a sort of cloud of happiness
composed of all this homage and admiratior, and of that
sense of triumph which is so sweet to weman’s heart.
“She left the bail abuur four o’clock in the mcrning.
Her husband had been sleeping since midnight in a little
deserted anteroom with three other gentlemen whose wives
were enjoying me ball.
She threw over her shoulders the wraps of commen
life, the.poverty of which contrasted with the elegance of
the ball dress. She felt this and wislied to escape so as not
to be remarked by the other women, who were envelop-
ing themsel:es in costly furs.
Loisel held her back. saying: “Wait a bit, You will
catch cold outside. I will call a cab.”
‘But she did not listen to him and rapidly' descended
‘the staifg. When they reached the strcet they could net
-find’a tatriage and began to look for one, shouting after the
cabmen passing at a distance.
. . "hey. went towards the Seine in despair, shivering
with-celd. . At last: they found on the quay cxe of those
ancient night cabs which, as though they were ashamed to
- skow their shabbiness during the day, are never seen round
Paris until after dark. ;
- Ittook'them to their dwelling in the Rue des Martyrs,

for her. As to him he reflected that he must be at the
ministry at ten o'clock that morning.

She removed her wraps betore the glass so as to see
herself once nore in all her glory. . But suddenly she
uttered a-cry. She no longer had the necklace round her
_ neck!

“What is the matter with you?” dsmanded her hus-
band, already half undressed. She turned distractedly
towards him.

“T have—I have—I've lost Madame Forestiet’s neck-
lace,” she cried." - He stood up, bewildered.
“What! — how? Impossible!”
They looked among the folds of her skit, 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?”

“No.” !

They looked, thunderstruck, at each other, At last
Loisel- put cn his clothes “I shall go back on foot,” said
he, ‘“‘over the whole route, to see whether I can find. is,”

He went out. She sat waiiing cn a chair ‘n her ball
dress, without strength to go to bed, overwhelmed, without
any fire, without a thcught. Her husband returned abeut
seven o'clock. He had found nothing. Fle went to
police headquarters to the newspaper offices to offer a rev
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 conditicn 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 ar?
having it mended. That will give us time to turn round.”

She wrote at his dictation.

At the end of the weck they had losr all hope.
Loisel, who had aged five years, declared:

“We must consider how to replace that ornament.”

The next day they took the box that had cortained it
and went to the jeweller whose name was found within.
He censulted his books.”’

“It was not I, madame, who sold that necklace; I
must simply have furnished the case.”

Then they went from jewelier to jeweller, searching
for a necklace like the other, trying to recall it, both sick
with chagrin and grief.

They found in a shop-ar the Palais Royal, a string of
diamonas that seemec io them exactly Uke the one they
had lost. It was worth forty thousand francs. They
could have it for thirty-six.

So they begged the jeweller not to sell it for three days
yet. And they made a bargain that he should buy it back
for tinirty-four thousand francs, in case they should find the
lost necklace before the end of February.

Loisel porsessed eighteen thousand francs which his
facber had left him. He would borrow the rest.

He did borrow, asking a thousand francs of one, five
bundred of another, five louis here, three lou:s there. He
gave notes, tcok up ruinous obligations, dealt with usurers
and all the race of lenders.. He compromised all the rest
of his life, risked signing a note without even knowing
whether he could meet it; and, frightened by the trouble
yet to come, by the black misery that was about to fall
upon him, by the prospect of all the physical privations
and moral tortures that he was to suffer, he went to get the
new necklace, laying upon the jeweller’s counter thirty-six
thousand francs,

When Madame Loisel took back the necklace, Madame Forestier
said to her with a chilly manner: 5

“You shculd have returned it sooner; I might have needed it.”
She did rot open the case, as her friend had so much tearsd. If se

had detected her substitution, what would she have thought, what would -

High Jump
Technique

Mcst good high jumpers are tall
and long legged but not all: a
shorter athlete with good springing
power can also excel. The secret
of success apatt from natural ability,
lies in the skilful use of oxe of tne
recognised 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 jump-
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 soould
consist of between 9 and 5 strides, 7
being the ideal. It. should bea
fluent run-up with no hep and
skips; over the fast 3 to 4 strides,
there shold be a marked acceleration
with the hips sinking slightly in
pteparation for the spring. The
last stride is long with the heel of
the foot striking the ground first’
The body is then leaning backwards
and is slightly inclined towards the
bar; buc this incline must net be
exagger:ted, . The direction of the
approach varies from jumper to
a4DO' all-
gle of 40 d2grees to the bar, It
should not ve ead on or too acute.

Take off:— The! take-off is of
paramount. importance and cannot
be over emphasised. For botly styles
described here the take-off is from
the leg “nearest the bar. A ter the
long last stride the unjumping leg is
swung through vigorously and high.
A wide splits position is essential
and the leading Jeg should be as
high as possible when the other
leaves the grourd. It is the long
Jast stride and the splits position
that enabe a convertion of forward
momentum to upward momentum.
The head should be kept erect and,
with th: chest, shoulders and arans,
be lifted as the leading leg coms
up.

Cleuran e:— The greatest heights
are ‘reached when the
achieves a good laycut over the
bat ie, when his centre-o’gravity is
as low over the bar as possible.
The Western Roll and Struddle are

e OU ally

the best techniques in achieving this. :

The ‘Roll’ is done with the side to
the bar and has a_ higher cenire-of-
gravity than the Straddie which is
done with the chest facing the bar
ard the body, in effect, ‘draped’

over it. The Srraddle is therefore
more efficient but itis also more

difficult to master then the roll,
Western Roll:— In effect this is

merely 2 hop over the bar with the

oody paralled to it as it clears.
The take-off is with the leg nearest
the bar and, if this is the left leg,
the layout is‘to the left, ie. the body
rotates to the left, The body cour-
tinues to rotate after clearance so that
the landing is face tc the ground
and on the hands and_ the jumping
foot. Inthe layout the head is.in-

stitable changes will be made if
deemed necessary by the selection
panel.

Batting -In_ Depth

THE team is a pretty strong one
especially from the batting point of
view, There is welcome depth in the
‘batting. Any side which can afford
to bat..a talented strokeplayer like
Gregoire at No 8 must engender ap-
prehension in the ranks of the enemy.
Phillips and Elwin are a formidable
opening combinatior. Elwin, whose



gression will find a calm, sober part-
ner in Phillips. oo.

“The ccol almost serene artistry of
Irving Shillingford, the brilliance of
Clem John when at his best, coup
led with a Alamboyant J. ©. Joseph
in tremendous batting form at the
moment, the hard hitting Eicstein
- Shillingford plus the stolid and stylish
Larocque, should provide betsman-
ship of a very high calibre.

The bowling is not lacking in va-
riety, Nesty and Mellow will spear-
head the attack the former being the
mere hostile and possibly the more
dangerous, but Mellow commaads a
fairly good length mest of the time.
Of slow medium seamer K, Laurent
with his ability to move the bail
both ways, many things are expected.
We has bowled excellently throu, hout
the season, but his analyses have been
significantly flattered too, by too many
leaden-footed batsmen. Much will
depend on the type of field placing
that his skipper employs,

All-rounders J, C. Joseph, skip-
pet Shillingford and Larocque pro-
vide a good vasiety of spin and all
told the team should give a good ac-
count of itself: The fielding and run-
ning between the wickets still leaves
much to be desired,

The Captaincy

The selection of Einstein Shill-
ing‘ord to lead the side is not unex-
pected. Heis avery keen player
and approaches his task with a cool
level. headed disposition which is
sometimes misinterpreted for noncha-
lance. Thoughts of O. Lewis as
captain divindled into oblivion
when it was observed that he is
very much handicapped by an eye
defeat — a factor which I think,

should have also disqualified him
for selection altogether, unless it
could be ascertained medically that
he will be fit in time for the tourna-
ment. Tis is very enlikely.

Shillingford’s task now is to
mould these players intc a good
team with the proper spirit. There
are many individuals on the side
and it is hoped that ia this cil im-
portart issue, team consciousness
will gain priority over the flait for
individual recognition or the tenden-
cy to tty to outdo each — other.
Though this can at times lead to.
useful performances, the demerits are
however morenumerous.

Robinson for Manager

A good manager, one who has
seen the players in action this season
and one who possesses a sound
knowledge of the game and its in
tricaries, will be an asset to-Shilling-
ford, and Eddie Robinson, fermer
island opening batsman, possessed
of a wealth of experience in these
teirnaments and once editor or this
culumn (Sporlight) would be an
ideal man for the job if he could
find the time to incorporate this into
his already tight schedule as secre-
tary of the cricket sub-committee,
It is hoped, however, that Shilling-
ford will get the best out of his
players irrespective of who is chc-
sen to help general the army.

It happens in nearly all cricket-
ing circles and at all levels, and
hence we are_no exception: selectors

“have never and will nevér be able to”

choose a team which will please all
the people all or even most of the
time, not even most of the people
most of the time, coupled with this
is the shield that to err is human,
but the omission of Renald Osborn
competent wicketkeeper -batsmaa,
from the sixteen selected is viewed
in virtually all local cricketing cir-
cles as an obvious ezror. |

Perhaps not so much so from the
nature of the post but more so be-
cause of the calibre of the player
omitted. If anyone deserved selec-
tion on merit to fill the role of dep-
uty to Gregoire, .Osborixe did. His
so runs on Sunday showed that his
sound temperament and his unruffled
fluent strokepiay especially on the off-
side merited greater rewards.

It is true that Gregoire is very fit
but inthe event of 2 mishap, che
lack of a good substitute keeper could
have far reaching effecis on the per-
formance of the team. Elwin and

Larocque can both ‘do some sore of should

work behind the stumps while Clem
John is not unacquainted with the
gloves, but there is a further case for
Osborne’s selection. Since Lewis’ fit-
ness 1s questionable and the four ex-
tras are all bowlers, Osborne if se-
Jected could fulfilla dual role—that
of being an extra batsman in reserve
as well as a regular wicket keeper.

Not Too Late

It is not too late to’ make amends
if the selectors can see this way of
thinking or if they think the criti-
cisms are justified and constructive.
Further if Lewis doesn't pass the
fitness test (medically) then he is
the type of tue sportsman’ who ma
easily ask the selectors to count him
out, thereby giving another a chance.

DON’T SELL THE P
Dr. O’Loughiin To Investigate? |
NDICATIONS that approaches will be made to the
Canadian Government for a go-ahead signal to dispose
of the two gift ships Federal Maple and Federal Palm aroused
immediate reactions in certain-quarters. Three onetime Fed-
eral M.P.s, Mrs. Phyllis Shand Allfrey of Dominica, Mr.’
J.M.D. (Evans) Bousquet of St. Lucia and Mr. Milton
Cate of St. Vincent, ccnsulted each other by telephone and
‘and agreed that,they would, firmly resist such a‘‘‘deal”., The
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.

Mr. Bousquet said he
could be quoted as “being
adamantly opposed to such a
move’. He agreed wich Mts.
Allfrey that every — effort
should be made to place the
West Indian Sipping ser-
vice on a proficable basis, and
that the ships should be _re-
fained for tie use sma—ocne-
fit of the island populations,
for, the carriage of fre’gnt ad
the comfort of tourists and
travellers, and that it would
be insulting to Canada to sell
out these magnificent gift ves-
sels. (Sce editorial, p. 6).

Meanwhile it is understood
that Dri Carleen C’Lou-
glin, Director of the Insti-
tute of Social and Econemic
Research, U.W.I. (Barba,
dos), is likely to make a sur-
-vey oa behalf of the Regional

Council of Ministers to in
vestigate questions of costs
and feasibility of continuation

Hen. Mil‘oa Cato, Leader
of the St. Vincent (Opposi-
tion) Labour Party said he
welcomed the news of the
proposed survey by Dr.
©’Loughlin and thoughi it
would be a pity to sell the
ships: no acrion should be
taken to dispose of them pen-
ding the examination of her
repott.

While in conversation
with Mr, Bousquet, who was
on his campaign tour in pre-
paration for St. Lucia’s gen-
er] election of June 25, Mrs.
‘Allfrey asked her ex-col-
league about his prospects.
Mr. Bousquet replied confi-
dently that he was certain to
win. é

| Union Split Harms Dominica --—

— Say GC. C. L. Speakers

Aa the heartening strains of “Solidarity Forever” on

May Day, street-corner listeners who missed hearing
wr. Antheny F. Joseph (Iecal President of CLASC-
affiliated T. C. C. W. U.) speak fer over two' hours. last
Wednesday wight, when he counter-atracked against. recent
C. C. I. pronouncements,’ heard Mr. A. EF. Joseph’s
statements summarised and attacked ata lively D. T. U.
gathering addressed from the Union office - on Thursday.

Although Mr. B. Brent- :

nol Blackman of C. GC. L,
declared against “‘the use of
vulgar personal abuse at my
age’, and said Mr, A. F,
Joseph was not significant
enough to waste. ‘90 ma‘.
words on, Mr. Josepn was.
mention in virtually every
other utterance. Sais

“Quarrel With Boss — Not

_ Fach Other

Admitting (as final
speaker) that he had said “the
T. U. movement in Domin-
ica had been wasting a lot
of time aad energy rowing
‘with each other — wheteas
if they had spent such energy
towing with the bosses the
workers would be better off,”
Mr, Blackman picked on
Joseph’s denouncement of
his philosophy as_ being
materialistic Socialism and the
T. C. C. W. claim that it
would not have any rows
with bosses. The workers
in Dominica, said Blackman,
were the poorest-paid in any
W. I. territory. =D. T. U.
officers had been put én the
carpet that day and were
going to “do some real work
and raise hell on behalf of
the workers in the next few
months®: that was their job.

Blunt Words

The speeches of the visit-
ing trade unionis:s could not
be described as delicately
phrased, but their bluntness
evoked pleasure from most of
the audience. Words like
‘fascist, ‘communist’, ‘split-
ter-traitor’ etc. were frecly
thrown about.

Chairman Duff James
(Gen. Sec. Technical &
Allied Workers Union of

St. Vincent): spoke leagthily,

‘vividly and somewhat repeti-

ously between other adv
dresses. He said’ he had
talked to Sir Garnet Gordon
that day .and -visited the

‘banana sheds. >: \Werning of

forthcoming aut o matic
labour-saving devices which
would cause unemployment
in certain islands; Mr: James
caid that the unions canld
protect their members in
such. cases by negotiating
severance pay and © pensions.
Splitting or. fragmentation
of the local union. (described —
as a matter which . strength-
ened the employers’ hand)
was a major hindrance to
good terms for the workers,
several speakers emphasized;
two of the orators stated that
if the Dominican workers
closed tneir ranks they would
be supported in times of
crisis not only by waterfront
and other CCL workers in
the region, but by powertul
unions in Britain, through

the ICFTU.
’ ~ All Christians

Several of the guest
speakers, harking back to
Mr. Joseph, declared their
religious allegiances, one say~
iug: “don’t prostitute our
Church tor devilish ends”;
another — “I go to Mass so
regularly, I must be pension-
able!” Elderly exzschool-
teacher Mrs. Ellen: Peters of
Montserrat madé her quiet
contribution to. this issue.

, There is evidence that Conservatives would suffer a severe defeat at a
“General Election and Labour be retarned with about a majority of about
100 seats, — Says Rev. R.W, SORENSEN M.P.

(Extracts from his article in Indian and Foreign
Review)

“The Outlook in Britain
A Labour View”

.... Som: very right-wing Tories harbour within their breasts, bitter
disgust at the virtual disappcarance of Rritish imperialism, at least in visi-
ble concrete form, whereas the Labour Party has become associated with
the concept of the Commonwealth, so much so that it has provided
material for influential propaganda against it for not endorsing the Gove
ernment’s restriction of imm:gration from the Commonweaith. Undoubt-
edly - a majority evcn of Labour supporters here agree with the Govern-
ment, not out of racial prejudice, but because of a not unfounded fear
that‘an immigration food has aggravated and would continue to aggra-
vate the housing problem. In such urban areas as London and Birmirg-
~hem the influx of hundreds of thou.ands of overseas workers and families
has resulted in their wretched ovet-crowding in slum dwellings, any new
accommodation being reserved for British familics who have been waiting
for this for marg years.

Â¥e.cannct be said that increased electoral suppost for Labour is par-
ticularly concerned with socia'ist theory, even if the public sector of che
British economy and comprehensive public services, including the Nation-
al Health Service, are not only taken for granted, but evoke strong resis-
tance to. any contracti68; On the whole it is felt that the extent to which
public contrel, ownership ar.d enterpris: has been implemented has been
justified. No one suggests the denationalisation of mining, electricity, gas
and’ some other cndertakings, noc of the railways, even though as in most
other countries, they have been’ sunniag at a heavy loss, - Jargely owing to
the multiplication of motor-cars and to some extent the increase in air
travel. But prudently the Labour Party does not propose, if returned at
the'caming General Election, to do more in the direction of public own-

ership than to re-naticnalise stecl, to seek powers to establish national fact- J
origs or industries in depressed areas and to secure some directive control.

in $uch industrial-concerns where this. would be nationally and economt-
cally advantageous. “What-it does stress ‘s the imperative need for drastic
technical modernisation inorder to eniure substantial per capita increase
in productivity that-would avoid inHation and enable social services to
expane and incomes to increase, Itt is for this that the Labour Party will
nest,

Fiaroid Wrilson’s Labcur Party leadership has wotr-aue
among Labour supporters and to some extent beyond these for he has
immense debating skill anda first class mind. The Party presents a
sense of unity and is in goo heart, its former fissions having disappeared
from view not simply because of Hugh Gaitskell’s tragic demise a year
ago, but both because of an intzrnal Party realisation of the necessity of
unity and.the emergence cf citcums-ances respecting cuclear weapons that
have at least temporarily banished letha) atmospheric tests and have dimin-
ished the need for possessing these weapons. Nevertheless, it is probable
that Conservative insistenee on British ownership of a contingent contribu-
tion of nuclear w.afons is a powerful card Conservatives will play at the

"General Election. .
During the cempaiga, the Conservative Party will not assert an im
pressive legislative record: int the lifttime of its Government. but it will al-
so commend to the electoraté new. plans for social betterment and educa-
tional expansicn, the necessity’ of strong military defence (including a

~ British nuclear deterrent), vigorous encouragement of private enterprise in

preference to dangerous extensions of public ownership, preservation of
valuable traditicnal institutions and the alleged outs:-nding capacity of its
leaders.

The Labour Party will criticise the Conservative Government’s errors
and failures (as is customary for an Opposition the world over), claim
that its plans for better social services are superior to those of the other
Parties, urge that its proposals for far-reaching modernisation of the econo-
my alone will meet admiited national need, renationalise the steel industry
and infiltrate public control and direction into other industries, advance
schemes for curtailing exploitation in land and house rents or sales, give
assurances of imaginative initiativ.s for internatiznal co-operation and
peace and assert the duty of integrating Commonwealth partnership.

The-Liveral Party will demand legislation for a form of Preportional
Representation, extol the benefits of co-partnership in public ownership
(including steel), share the . Labour Party’s repudiation of the need of
Britain posséssing its own. nuclear deterrent, support many social reforms
and stress the principles of liberty and freedom.

DOMINICA HERALD

\So They Say
By Bob & Ray
(Concluded from last week)

The name of this fascina-
ting book. is, simply:
“Snakespeare of Londen”
and it’s written Ly a woman,
Marchetie Chute.

idiss C huie’s opening
chapter on the playwright’s
father, John Shakespeare,
prepares the reader by setting
the time and condivons that
were present just prior to son
William’s birth in Stratford-
on-Avon, England. With
this cleariy defined and docu-
mented the reader is well
prepzred for the flowing
story that follows and when
ke has finished the tiny 361-
page book it is as though the
clock has been turned back
and that the reader was there,
with William Shakespeare
all the while!

Stratford-on-Avon was
one of the largest towns in
Warwickshire 400 years ago
ardamong the _ busiest.
ohn Shakespeare lived in a
pleasant little village of Snit-
tetfield, four miles to the
north. ‘His father was a
tenant farmer and his brother
was a tenant farmer, but
John had no intention of

Miss Chute writes. ‘*Whcen
he left Snittersfield he opro-
bably had no higher ambi-
tion than to become a suc-
cessful business man in Strat-
ford; but before John
Shakespeare died he had
achieved the highest political
office in town, and had_ been
a justice of the peace, a land-
owner and a gendsman with
a coat of arms.”

Iu the telling of this story,
Miss Chute weaves son Wil-
liam carefully into it; descric-
ing with great talen: the
Stratford that John Shake-
speare knew.

The book ‘The Shake-
spearean Ciphers Examined”
by William F. and Elizabeth
S. Friedman published by
Cambridge University Press
is, by comparison, a weighty
volume written aiong the
lines that “‘proving that some-
body else wrote Shakespeare
has become a popular
pastime.” The book
examines claims that “deserve
a fair hearing.” The Fried-
mans are professional crypto-
logists and they have mide a
lifelong study of ciphers that
allegedly disprove Sh-ke-
pearean authorship. Soime
of their “evidence” is indeed
interesting and at times one

has a feelings that the cryptic

\



messages hidden oa old
gravestones, in the texts cf
hundreds of books in
old manuscripts, ec.
have a greater iuterest read
“straight” thao by “interpréta-
tion.”

For the very busy _ person,
the College Outline Series on
“Outlines of Shakespeare’s
Plays” are a fast way to
absorb this amazing maavof-
letters for it gives synopses,
background material and
genealogical cherts in boiled-

own version...all done
for you by three scholarly
gentlemen all of New York
University. Where in con-
trast you can take months
reading one volume “The
Complete Works of Shake-
speare” (1527 pages) with a
preface by Christopher
Morley.

The bsok “Shakespeare”
originally written in French,
by Jean Paris is fairly new
and ‘ brings much of the
Renaissance into the life of
the Elizabethan actor and
how that age was destined
to inspire thousands of great
works with its forces of dark-
ness and corruption begin-

“THE BIRDS”

ORE terrifying and mysterious

than any film he has ever done

in any of kis pre vious episodes,

Aifted Joseph Hitchcock’s “The

Birds” brings a sensational shock and
suspense to the screen.

Although “The Birds” has no
musical background, it is still a
masterpiece. Mauay horrific movies
depict scenes with intense thundery

. Musical suspense, bloodshed, vam-

pires and nightmares. There is a
great contrast in Hitchcock’s work.
He actually deals with life’s natural
resources. His only disadvantage 1s
he always leaves the audience in
doubt at the end of his film.

‘In the little community of “Mo-
daga Bay’—U.S.A., where lawyer
Mitch “Rod Taylor’ sperds every
week-end although stationed in San
Francisco; Lilia “Tippi Hedrin” in-

~-fluenced by Mitch’s handsome: and

pair of love-birds, “which Mitch ur-

The first plague of the Birds at
tacked at Cathy’s paity, causing death
and injuries to many chilaren and the
Bennter family; this was followed by
an attack on a school, where the
Birds automatically gathered on cages,
fences and -n the school-roof await-
ing the pupils’ dismissal; a second
attack brought the death of Anne.

Myster:ously, ‘The Birds” ats cxed
a gasoline station, killed the salesman
causing gasoline to scatter. Later an
innatentive smoker lights a match,
and causes a huge fire. Firemen ana
other people had to face two com-
bats.

“The Birds’’ last attack was on
the Benniers (Mitch’s family) causing
devastation to their reinforced home;
the Birds ravaged docrs, windows,
and destroyed the roof—and went o.+

keep them out he is badly battered by
bird’s oites. '

With thousands of Birds massing

Government, including the prompt and
timely provision of technical expeits
already at work and still to come, and in
particular for the magnificent offer of a
merchant ship for use in the Regional
Shipping Services.”

All ef us-know that the ‘magnificent
offer’? was-doiibled dn 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
nationhood. .

ow we Jearn that. 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 — and other smaller ships substi-
tuted. We wonder what the Itinidad
High Commissioner in Canada, who as
Federal Minister of Commmnications inv
augurated the service, feels about - the
matter.

In our view this sale would be 2 shan.e-
ful and insulting thing to do. “1 h2 sug-
gestion comes from those “Units” which
were first to abandon the Federal ship of
State. We resist it. We believe that
ways aud means can and should be found
for us to keep our gift ships which
Canada gave to all the people of these
islands, big and little, so that they may be
run on a propedly economic basis; and
beg leave to make the following proposals.

First we admit that under present cit-
cumstances the ships are being run at a

heavy loss. But before takiog 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.

1. 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-
ter-island and particularly inter-Ttinidad-
Jamaica trade by reconsidering customs

union, even if partial; che run might (with
diplomacy) be extended to British Guiana;
it could be further augmented by visits to
the French islands of Martinique and
Guadeloupe.

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?
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 amz1sement
of the local population! Reflect on the

and, it Will be seen ow attracuive su
development could become, with the co-
operation of local tourist boards.

5. Publish the Economic Report made
to the Regional Shipping Council held lase
week. Let us have all the facts about the
running expenses of these ships, so that
public comment can be, invited. We do

_ pot think that ANY GOVERNMENT 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 to Cana-
da; we poor small-islanders, being noti-

“ indepeadent, cannot do so.

We cannot say we were rot war.ed.
On March 28, 1901, a Federal M.P. with
shipping experience (from Montserrat),
said in 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 ofa corporation for the econo-
mic running of it.’ Anda columnist
writirg in this very HERALD on March
14 this year pointed cut the disabilities
under which the federal ships are now
operating.

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 waen expansion may be
around the corner and when the Carib-
bean is becoming less insular and more
global-minded, not only in trade matters
but in the even more precious field’ of
human interrelations.

7-G.6.W.U.
Complaint |

The Editor,
I write as a member of
the T.C,C.W.U. about May Day.

Everything was fine until Mr.
Blackman of C.C.L. got people
annoyed when he said that there
should be one Union. He also was
unwise enough to suggest that cer-
tain people want to divide the
workers by religion, class and so on.

. Has Mr. Blackman told the
unions in the other places — espec-
ially B.G. his home that there are
too many unions there? I guess not
because most of them are perhaps
affiliated to C.C.L. so that is al-
right. .. ~

Mr. Dyce i think, is a gentleman
for while his May Day Letter in the
Herald attacks the CLASC as
creating disenity, he saw to it that
the Secretary of the Dominica
Trade Union did not read that
part at the May Day Rally.

As faras I know, the TCCWU
is trying to havea Trade Union
Council in Dominica for unity but
the CCL has told the Dominica
Trade. Union to stay out of that.
Is this the unity of the workers
that the C.C.L. speaks about < nd is
it that kind of unity they say
CLASC is trying to subvert and

‘confuse? If it is, and Mr, Blackman

has shown’ it clearly, then” the
; Wty Tighe beca

CCL seems te want.a monopoly
to serve North American interests
as is being done in Mexico. now
and was recently exposed by the
CLASC.

I think the

Unioa has had

Domi‘nica Trade
sufficient troubles

‘over the past years for them to now

allow the C.2,L. to separate them-
selves from. the other Untons in
Dominica.

it is the C.C.L. that does not
want unity in the’ true sense. The
unity they speak about is where all
unions be long to C.C.L. ana
C.C.L. alone.

Is that fair? Is that honest? Is
that democratic?

Workers are warned that they
should think well on these things
and demand local co-opecation
among all the Uni-ns for the good
of Dominica.

OS ss Ta
Why He Resigned
Dear Madam,

The apncuncement in
the HERALD of the 25th April of
my resignation of membership in the
Dominica Unit:d People’s Party may
be news with interest perhaps only to
Political rivals of that party but defi-
cient in content ‘as an item of infor-
mation in this mischief-filled island.

In my letter to the Secretary of the
Party I wrote; —

‘Tam sending a copy of this
Jetter to the Organiser of the
Star’ Party, the policies of
which Party, I am likely to
support in fature. I de this,
however, not for any publicity,
which neither I nor this letter
is important enough to get, but
as evidence of my release from
allegiance to the D.U.P.P. end
any obligations arising ‘tom
membership.”

“Policy” then is the reascn for my
resignation. I see too much that re-
quires reform in Dominica for'me to
waste time in giving support ‘o any
patry or orgauization with policies
moulded in castbound traditions and
conceived in the o!d belicfs and sys-
tems that led us into and now leave
us in the state in which we are today:
In my conception, the needs of this
time demand a complete breakaway
from the past and the formulation of
new beliefs, new values and approa-
ches, new formsand systems for our
society and national life.

The: Politicz] Paty I will sepport
in the future must be one with a vis-
ion and a philosophy of life, imbued
with a crusading spirit and sense of a
Missioner carrying a message to men
and women — young and old,
learned and unlearned, prince and
Feasant — and not a mere vote-sali-
citing machine and copy-book poli-
cy maker,

LONDON LETTER



SAIURDAY, MAY 9, 1964

BY GRAHAM NORTON

Clutching At

‘Straws.

_ The announcement by Siz
“Alec Douglas-Home that
Britain is nct to have the

General Election uniil the
autumn after all, has led to a
lull in the campaign between
the two main parties. The
tension that must build up
when battle is imminen: has
gone frem us. Instead, we
find a state of siege, a great
game of trench warfare.
Both sides have taken up
their position, and will be
careful-during the next six
months not to be tempied
out into danger.

The Labour Party in
particular has learnt its lesson.
In previous ejections the party
has issued detailed statements
of its proposals. These have
then provided the Conserva-
tives with fine targets at
which to fir The best
form of defence, the. Tories
know, is attack. And the
Labour Party, even - more
foolishly, instead of ignoring
this tactic, and allowing it to
peter out, have in the pas
leapt to tne aid of their pre-
cious policies, The delight-

ee ives then carried
the war into their enemies’
camp, and uirce times have
emegedvictorious. A
government in an election
campaign expects to defend
its cecord, including what it
has not done. To be relieved
of this burden is an act of

political charity for which no
teward-excepting o fi c e!—
‘could be too great, Mr.
Wilson however is neither
generous to his opponents nor
lacking in tactical skill; and
he means to wir. Under
his orders, the party stands
pat on its policy as laid dewn
in 1967. New cetailed prov
posals are avoided, and a
continued criticism of the
government, its actions and
its men, never ceaces.
For Sir iXlec, the post.
ponement of the election is a
breathing space during ‘which



understandably unenthasias-
tic. Ahead of the Govern-
ment lie probable balance-of
payments difficulties after the
sum met, international
troibles in Cyprus and in
the Aden Federation, and
the demand of the minority
White governmen: in Sou-
thern Rhodesia that they
shall be givea independence,
and, if not, the threat that
they will declare themselves
so. This would pose the
gtavest problem yet for the
Commonwealth. Can Bri-
tain steel herself in that case
to intervene by force? If she
does not, then the Aftican
nations of the ‘Common-
wealth will in all probability
cease to have any regard for
their connection with it.

The Government must
face dangerous situations, and
they will be exposed to
withering fire at home from
which thete is mo escape.
This will continue to come
not only from Labour, but
also from many of the most
influential newspapers, and
even from. the ranks of the
Conrervative Party itself.
In The Times; a rece:st series
of aricles by ‘A’ Conserva-
five prov.acd some. of the.
most devastating criticism of
tne party ii recent years, and
was cbviously by an M, P.
Mr. Enoch Powell has made
several scathing speeches on
the Government’s policies, or
lack of them. If there is
weakness on Southern Rho-
desta, then Mr. Macleod will
not keep silence, and he will
be joined by many progres-
sive young Members.

One caiinot help observ
ing that tue Prime Minister’s
party is not united, that his
showing nas done little to
rally its cleverest members in
the House to him by reason
of any confidence in his
powers. As the months go

Gn The Last Regional Ccuncil Meeting

@ The Workers’ Voice (Antigua) April 19, 1964

_ Many of us ate very anxious to learn something about the Confer-
ence of the Regional Council of Ministers now taking place in Barbados.
So far up to this present time very little news is availavle for publication.
There are (sic) scme news in regards to the Eastera Caribbean (u recy,
but this thing bad already vgreed to at a previcus meeting of the Council. N

Nevertheless we hold these truth in the absence of news from them,
that all men are crea:ed equal, that they are endowed by their creator with
certain unalieable rights, that among these are Ife, liberty and th: pursuit
of happiness. That jc secure these tights, government are instituted
among man did it 1s the right of every people to institute their own go-
vernment which seems most likely to affect theit owa safe’y and happi-

It seems to us however that there are substantial diffcrences of opin-
icn on that extent, as many of the delegates Lave already. bent on the idea
of having a very strong central gevernment which may affect many of the

A Man For All Ages

Shakespeare’s plays were
not only for his own age and
curs, not for one nation or
language, but for all humani-
ty. He planted one leg of his
compass in the Elizabct>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 emi-
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 gives 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 of
Shakespeare’s Plays (Barnes &
Noble, Inc, New York,
1945). Three men of differ-
ent temperaments are faced
with the task of avenging the
death of a father. How will
e.ch man solve the problem ?
Hamlet, the man who thinks
without acting, delays;
Laertes, the man who acts
without - thinking, plunges;
and the two tragic figures
perish cn the same poisoned
sword, leaving the kingdom
to Fottinbras, the cool-headed
balanced man who plans and
acts in due proportion and at
appropriate times.

There are, too, lessons of
tolerance. Cymbeline, A Win-
ter’s Tale, and The Tempest
are comedies of reconciliation
and forgiveness and the ree
storation of lost happiness.

| THE NECKLACE ..
A Famous Short Story By GUY de MAUPASSANT—
1850-1893
Concluded from last issue
The night of the ball errived. Madame Loisel was

a gteat success. She wvs prettier than any ctha woman
present, elegani, graceful), sm‘ling and filled with joy. All
the men Icoked at her, asked her name, sought te be intro-
duced. All ure attaches of the Cabinet wished to waltz
with ur. She was remarked by the min.ster himsetf.
She darecd v ith rapcure, with passion, intoxicated
by pleasure, forgetting ali ia the triumph of her heau-y, in
the slory of her success, in a sort of cloud of happiness
composed of all this homage and admiratior, and of that
sense of triumph which is so sweet to weman’s heart.
“She left the bail abuur four o’clock in the mcrning.
Her husband had been sleeping since midnight in a little
deserted anteroom with three other gentlemen whose wives
were enjoying me ball.
She threw over her shoulders the wraps of commen
life, the.poverty of which contrasted with the elegance of
the ball dress. She felt this and wislied to escape so as not
to be remarked by the other women, who were envelop-
ing themsel:es in costly furs.
Loisel held her back. saying: “Wait a bit, You will
catch cold outside. I will call a cab.”
‘But she did not listen to him and rapidly' descended
‘the staifg. When they reached the strcet they could net
-find’a tatriage and began to look for one, shouting after the
cabmen passing at a distance.
. . "hey. went towards the Seine in despair, shivering
with-celd. . At last: they found on the quay cxe of those
ancient night cabs which, as though they were ashamed to

Paris until after dark. ;

for her. As to him he reflected that he must be at the
ministry at ten o'clock that morning.

She removed her wraps betore the glass so as to see
herself once nore in all her glory. . But suddenly she
uttered a-cry. She no longer had the necklace round her
_ neck!

“What is the matter with you?” dsmanded her hus-
band, already half undressed. She turned distractedly
towards him.

“T have—I have—I've lost Madame Forestiet’s neck-
lace,” she cried." - He stood up, bewildered.
“What! — how? Impossible!”
They looked among the folds of her skit, 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?”

“No.” !

They looked, thunderstruck, at each other, At last
Loisel- put cn his clothes “I shall go back on foot,” said
he, ‘“‘over the whole route, to see whether I can find. is,”

He went out. She sat waiiing cn a chair ‘n her ball
dress, without strength to go to bed, overwhelmed, without
any fire, without a thcught. Her husband returned abeut
seven o'clock. He had found nothing. Fle went to
police headquarters to the newspaper offices to offer a rev
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 conditicn 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 ar?
having it mended. That will give us time to turn round.”

¥-mourted-the-stairs.to_rheir—flat.. All was. ended.

She wrote at his dictation.

At the end of the weck they had losr all hope.
Loisel, who had aged five years, declared:

“We must consider how to replace that ornament.”

The next day they took the box that had cortained it
and went to the jeweller whose name was found within.
He censulted his books.”’

“It was not I, madame, who sold that necklace; I
must simply have furnished the case.”

Then they went from jewelier to jeweller, searching
for a necklace like the other, trying to recall it, both sick
with chagrin and grief.

They found in a shop-ar the Palais Royal, a string of
diamonas that seemec io them exactly Uke the one they
had lost. It was worth forty thousand francs. They
could have it for thirty-six.

So they begged the jeweller not to sell it for three days
yet. And they made a bargain that he should buy it back
for tinirty-four thousand francs, in case they should find the
lost necklace before the end of February.

Loisel porsessed eighteen thousand francs which his
facber had left him. He would borrow the rest.

He did borrow, asking a thousand francs of one, five
bundred of another, five louis here, three lou:s there. He
gave notes, tcok up ruinous obligations, dealt with usurers
and all the race of lenders.. He compromised all the rest
of his life, risked signing a note without even knowing
whether he could meet it; and, frightened by the trouble
yet to come, by the black misery that was about to fall
upon him, by the prospect of all the physical privations
and moral tortures that he was to suffer, he went to get the
new necklace, laying upon the jeweller’s counter thirty-six
thousand francs,

When Madame Loisel took back the necklace, Madame Forestier
said to her with a chilly manner: 5

“You shculd have returned it sooner; I might have needed it.”
She did rot open the case, as her friend had so much tearsd. If se

had detected her substitution, what would she have thought, what would -

she have said? Would she not have taken Madame Loisel: for
Thereafter Madame Loisél knew the -barrible existence of the needy

High Jump
Technique

Mcst good high jumpers are tall
and long legged but not all: a
shorter athlete with good springing
power can also excel. The secret
of success apatt from natural ability,
lies in the skilful use of oxe of tne
recognised 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 jump-
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 soould
consist of between 9 and 5 strides, 7
being the ideal. It. should bea
fluent run-up with no hep and
skips; over the fast 3 to 4 strides,
there shold be a marked acceleration
with the hips sinking slightly in
pteparation for the spring. The
last stride is long with the heel of
the foot striking the ground first’
The body is then leaning backwards
and is slightly inclined towards the
bar; buc this incline must net be
exagger:ted, . The direction of the
approach varies from jumper to
a4DO' all-
gle of 40 d2grees to the bar, It
should not ve ead on or too acute.

Take off:— The! take-off is of
paramount. importance and cannot
be over emphasised. For botly styles
described here the take-off is from
the leg “nearest the bar. A ter the
long last stride the unjumping leg is
swung through vigorously and high.
A wide splits position is essential
and the leading Jeg should be as
high as possible when the other
leaves the grourd. It is the long
Jast stride and the splits position
that enabe a convertion of forward
momentum to upward momentum.
The head should be kept erect and,
with th: chest, shoulders and arans,
be lifted as the leading leg coms
up.

Cleuran e:— The greatest heights
are ‘reached when the
achieves a good laycut over the
bat ie, when his centre-o’gravity is
as low over the bar as possible.
The Western Roll and Struddle are

e OU ally

the best techniques in achieving this. :

The ‘Roll’ is done with the side to
the bar and has a_ higher cenire-of-
gravity than the Straddie which is
done with the chest facing the bar
ard the body, in effect, ‘draped’

over it. The Srraddle is therefore
more efficient but itis also more

difficult to master then the roll,
Western Roll:— In effect this is

merely 2 hop over the bar with the

oody paralled to it as it clears.
The take-off is with the leg nearest
the bar and, if this is the left leg,
the layout is‘to the left, ie. the body
rotates to the left, The body cour-
tinues to rotate after clearance so that
the landing is face tc the ground
and on the hands and_ the jumping
foot. Inthe layout the head is.in-
clined: downwaids -with the arms

Larocque, should provide betsman-
ship of a very high calibre.

The bowling is not lacking in va-
riety, Nesty and Mellow will spear-
head the attack the former being the
mere hostile and possibly the more
dangerous, but Mellow commaads a
fairly good length mest of the time.
Of slow medium seamer K, Laurent
with his ability to move the bail
both ways, many things are expected.
We has bowled excellently throu, hout
the season, but his analyses have been
significantly flattered too, by too many
leaden-footed batsmen. Much will
depend on the type of field placing
that his skipper employs,

All-rounders J, C. Joseph, skip-
pet Shillingford and Larocque pro-
vide a good vasiety of spin and all
told the team should give a good ac-
count of itself: The fielding and run-
ning between the wickets still leaves
much to be desired,

The Captaincy

The selection of Einstein Shill-
ing‘ord to lead the side is not unex-
pected. Heis avery keen player
and approaches his task with a cool
level. headed disposition which is
sometimes misinterpreted for noncha-
lance. Thoughts of O. Lewis as
captain divindled into oblivion
when it was observed that he is
very much handicapped by an eye
defeat — a factor which I think,

should have also disqualified him
for selection altogether, unless it
could be ascertained medically that
he will be fit in time for the tourna-
ment. Tis is very enlikely.

Shillingford’s task now is to
mould these players intc a good
team with the proper spirit. There
are many individuals on the side
and it is hoped that ia this cil im-
portart issue, team consciousness
will gain priority over the flait for
individual recognition or the tenden-
cy to tty to outdo each — other.
Though this can at times lead to.
useful performances, the demerits are
however morenumerous.

Robinson for Manager

A good manager, one who has
seen the players in action this season
and one who possesses a sound
knowledge of the game and its in
tricaries, will be an asset to-Shilling-
ford, and Eddie Robinson, fermer
island opening batsman, possessed
of a wealth of experience in these
teirnaments and once editor or this
culumn (Sporlight) would be an
ideal man for the job if he could
find the time to incorporate this into
his already tight schedule as secre-
tary of the cricket sub-committee,
It is hoped, however, that Shilling-
ford will get the best out of his
players irrespective of who is chc-
sen to help general the army.

It happens in nearly all cricket-
ing circles and at all levels, and
hence we are_no exception: selectors

“have never and will nevér be able to”

choose a team which will please all
the people all or even most of the
time, not even most of the people
most of the time, coupled with this
is the shield that to err is human,
but the omission of Renald Osborn
competent wicketkeeper -batsmaa,
from the sixteen selected is viewed
in virtually all local cricketing cir-
cles as an obvious ezror. |

Perhaps not so much so from the
nature of the post but more so be-
cause of the calibre of the player
omitted. If anyone deserved selec-
tion on merit to fill the role of dep-
uty to Gregoire, .Osborixe did. His
so runs on Sunday showed that his
sound temperament and his unruffled
fluent strokepiay especially on the off-
side merited greater rewards.

It is true that Gregoire is very fit
but inthe event of 2 mishap, che
lack of a good substitute keeper could
have far reaching effecis on the per-
formance of the team. Elwin and

Larocque can both ‘do some sore of should

work behind the stumps while Clem
John is not unacquainted with the
gloves, but there is a further case for
Osborne’s selection. Since Lewis’ fit-
ness 1s questionable and the four ex-
tras are all bowlers, Osborne if se-
Jected could fulfilla dual role—that
of being an extra batsman in reserve
as well as a regular wicket keeper.

Not Too Late

It is not too late to’ make amends
if the selectors can see this way of
thinking or if they think the criti-
cisms are justified and constructive.
Further if Lewis doesn't pass the
fitness test (medically) then he is
the type of tue sportsman’ who ma
easily ask the selectors to count him
out, thereby giving another a chance.
