Impressions of

By kField Officer of the
British Red Society-Jenny T.
Scott (Scottish Branch)
Many people still ask:;
why is the Red Cross active
in times of peace Whot
do they do ? Let me answer
this by telling you of the
work done in this island by
the Dominican Branch of the
British Red Cross Society.
Soon af;er my arrival in
Dominica on Friday May 8,
I attended an enrollment Cere,
mopy of Junior Red Cross
members at Government
House, when almost 50 new
recruits repeated their pledge
to "join with others all over
the world to help the' sick
and suffering". Their motto
"Serve One Another" speaks
tor itself, and this ideal of
Service Voluntary Service
- is also carried out by the
Senior Voluntary Aid de,
tachments. May 8 was a
most appropriate date for
such a ceremony, since it is
the birthday ofHenri
Dumant, the Swiss Banker
who founded the Red Cross
first over zoo years ago.
It is greatly to the credit of
Dominica that it has so many

The Man Who Pitched Bottles
Ry Phyllis Shand Allfrey
When Hon. Mr. Drmipierre was awakened ,o ea-ly
in tbe morring by that telephone bell in his Sa zannah
-To :el Iedroom, h, responded disagreeably zo the flat, ,wect
bigisland voice.
"Pardchn me, are you the Honourable Damper? Do
you k io v a man by r ame Ignatius St. Medoc?" (She
pronounced it Sammydock.)
Mr. Dampierre was a Smider M. P. at present cornm
biting two happy occupations: attending a conference on
a generous subsistence allowance and watching a memor-
able cricket match. For those, who do not know what
Smtid'r means, it is an abbreviation of small-islander and was
often used in Mr.'s tine to describe emi,.
grants from underdeveloped Caribbean lands to other more
populous centres, or even unfortunates who were popped
into police vans and later deported to hcme ba:es.
The engrossing dream from which Mr. Dampierre was
so rudely aroused had just reached the point when the
whole savannah swarmed with gladiators shouting "Sinlal
doan out!" and fading light flashed and shattered with
shocking glass bottles. He, Dampierre, people's repre,
tentative, had leapt in dream-fantasy to protect the host
Premier instead of the Governor (the real hero), and he
caught a huge rum bottle just before it crashed on the
Premier's skull. Everyone on the field went crazy whvih
admiration. Dampierre received so many thumps on the
back and so many congratulatory drinks afterwards that
his whole physique was ithpaired by the dreams: he could
hardly "hold up the telephone receiver.
"A young man by name Ignatius Saminydxck: Says
he headed bananas for you . Says you and he aie
frietrds. Jubt a minute. .says you know him by the
title of Iggy."

The Man Who Pitched Bottles
(A Short Story)
Cont. from page 3
Igg". The bell in his brain rang at last. "What
does he want, Miss I Dampierre bit back a groan.
"He ask you to bring over a tray of breakfast to the
police station, he is hungry. This is Policewoman Gemma
"Well, hell!" exclaimed Mr. Dampierre. "Excuse
me, Miss. What trouble is Iggy in ?"
"Pitching bottles at the Oval," said the sweet flat
voice, sounding enigmatically sympathetic. Then she
hung up.
Hon. Mr. Dampierre breakfasted with two early-rising
colleagues who were churchward-bound: it was Sunday.
They, too, had slept tensely (they said) after the ferocious
cricket match, but they had not dreamed of heroism, neither
had they been asked to take a tray of breakfast to the police
station. One of them advised Mr. Dampierre: "Damn
sauce. Leave him lie'" But the second, a loyal Smider
M. P., said cautiously, "Isn't he your constituent? "
"My best banana-herder," said Mr. Dampierre gloomi-
ly. So before leaving the dining-room he compromised by
signalling a waiter and ordering a package of thick assorted
sandwiches. When the taxi deposited him at the police
station, he saw Iggy at once, and the counter between them
served as a breakfast table. Iggy looked a little roughed,
up, but was smiling confidently, like a man who has faith
in his legislator. Telling the tale (while he munched) of
how be arrived very late at yesterday's cricket-match and
didn't even see Sinlal run out, he described how he heard
a big comesse just like carnival and saw hundreds of people
pitching botdes. They rmped up and yelled "Sinlal not
out! Sinlal doan out! naturally 'he jumped up and
shouted too! i
"And you pitched bottles too," said Mr. Damoierre

Iggy denied this absolutely. "An me holin' my rew
bicycle lamp in my one han' and my new bicycle pump in
the other ? Is late I was late 'because I chain-up the bike
hard to the railing.' Is only jump up I jump up. When
people run I run. Police ketch me because I laughing' too
much. I tell them, is only me alone yourall goin hole '
That vex them." Iggy took a fine bite out of a beef sand-
For many days from that fatal morning, Mr. Dam,
pierre's main pre-occupation was the case of Iggy. He
made submissions to conference in short order and attended
the Magistrate's Court, accompanied by an observer Q. C.,
and later he attended H. M. Gaol, for despite early hopes
Iggy was severely sentenced. It would cos. two hundred
and forty d Jllars to pay his fine and extricate him. Worse,
Mr. Dampicrre was given the charge of Iggy's bicycle. It
was the bicycle which had first convinced our worthy legis,
lator of Iggy's innocence. He knew when the prosecutor
barked "But you had a glass object in your haud the
officer saw it flash ..nd a stick in the other didn't you
pitch ? That Iggy would never have thrown his new
lamp and pump at anybody. But poor Iggy was worse
than unconvincing as a witness. He never even mentioned
his lamp and pump! When he was given a grand oppor,
unity by the question, "did you yourself believe Snmlal was
run out or d'd you not ? Iggy did not even hesitate or
reply truthfully that he never thought at all or (with greater
cunning) "he was out." He simply turned on his confi,
dent smile and said in an echo of that exciting last moment,
"he doan out."
Meanwhile the community and the press had decided
that the bottlepitching was the work of wicked Smiders,
worthy only of deportation. Radio voices quivered with
national indignation at such unsporting behaviour. How,
ever even Mr. Dampierre's sceptical Smider colleagues had
swung round to the belief that Iggy was d harmless scape,
goat, suffering fer the sins of all Smiders and cowring up
for local malefactors. Reluctantly but nobly, Hon. Mr.
Dampierre paid the fine and the legal expenses, moving
into a boarding-house to conserve his subsistence allowance.

Iggy was taken from the prison and deported in a schooner
to his home island. He left his bicycle behind, and Mr.
Dampierre elected to travel back by ship to accompany it.
Such are the trials of ho-iourable members.
If Mr. Dampierre had subconsciously expected a
thankful Iggy to return to heading bananas for him, he was J
mistaken. The hero of botrlepitching speedily accepted a
labourer's job in the public works department.
Neyertheless Iggy's gratitude was genuine; he appeared
on Sunday and made a flower-bed in front of Mr. Dam-
pierre's house, to which every year in office added both
superstructure and amenities. On public holidays he
accompanied his legislator on a tour of the constituency,
wh;ch included Iggy's natal village. There Iggy made his
first political speech, graphically describing the prison break,
fast and other details. This was sensationally well received,
although other villages became slightly disenchanted with
the history. Mr. Dampieire finally made Iggy chairman
of his rural meetings in order to curb his oratory. But
everyone knows that Smider chairmen have the opportunity
to make not just one, but at least six speeches on public
Iggy now wore jacket-style shirts with pleats down the
front, had a new hairstyle, and won a prize at the Cinemn
Talent Show for singing Dan is the Man in the Van with
great feeling and humour. He was popular; he had
several girlfriends, and Mr. Dampierre thought it his duty
to warn him against dubious associations and to remind
him of the soundness of a healthy agricultural career.
After this little lecture, Iggy was not seen around for
several weeks.
One week-day when Mr. Dampierre had received the
overdue appointment of Minister without Portfolio aftef the
incumbent Minister had fallen off a donkey into a ravine,
Iggy strolled into iis office. He had such a liberated
white-collar look that the new Minister asked at once
~" 'a-.- rouay" ".'left the public works long-
time," Iggy replied, laughing. He went on to explain
that he had gone back to the land like Mr. Dampierre had
advised him. A lady had given h;m to manage her
property, not so far frem Mr. Dampierre's own small estate.
The new Minister was duly impressed, and also to a
certain extent proud. He really felt that what he hat he had done
for Iggy had been a good human investment. Certainly
the young man had never looked back since hee had been
rescued from the gaol. "How's your bicycle?" asked Mr.
Dampierre fondly, remembering that dismal Sunday when
he had unchained Iggy's bike from the Oval railings and
tethered it in front of the boardinghouse to depreciate his.
own social status.
"I got a motorbike now," said Iggy. "And later,
is a jeep I'll trade it for."
"Your new employer must have money!" exclaimed
Mr. Dampierre.
"Not money buit plenty land. She and me going
to married is because she modern. Not like the girls
you spoke against. She tole me her manager can sleep by
her at her mother house, but no man sleeping there v.ithout
the Chur:h, the ring and the paper. Is come I come to
ask you to the weddin, because you brought me mny break,

Mr., Dampierre's good deeds, like an obituary notice.
Hon. Mr. Dampierre (who was still an unmarried
father) was visibly moved by such during allied to sent,

"Now take it light and doan ride no donkeys," said
Iggy in an exact reproduction of Mr. Dampierre's admoni,
tory tone. "Still for all, God dispose, so if you meet up
with any accident, is a modern married man the people is
looking for. Be certain sure, Honourable, Iggy will never
let you down."

Mdudlitig's 'stand reflected the
attitude of the Colonial Office,

1961 the objective situation had not
changed. It was a wanton act in
the eyes of the outside world, and in
a large part of the West Indies.
The British had therefore been re-
luctant to enter once more into a
whole new set of negotiations for an-
other federation. The Colonial
Office had been fed up with the
West Indies for a very long time,
and'had already advised the politi,
cians t.iat from Federation onwards
the West Indies must forget Britain

It was unfair to the Windward
and Leeward Islands because they
were saddled with 15 per cent of the
national budget although they only
had 1o per cent of the population
within their borders. Therefore they
had been paying an unfair share of
Federal burden.

A String Of Aid in a White Paper Scholarships And

These various considerations set out in die White
Paper form part of the present international thinking on the
whcle question of how best to grart aid. These are sub-
jects on which the recipient countries are thinking hardly
less than the donor nations. The application of Labour
policy to aid-giving would have to take account of these
current thoughts and current endeavours in this new realm
of bilateral and multilateral transactions.

During the last three years the need for aid has be,
come no less. The difference between the standards of
living in the industrialized and in the developing nations
has not diminished on the contrary it has increased.
The developing countries of the world must necessary,
ly depend largely on their own exertions; but the de,
veloped nations recognize a responsibility to help them,
both by giving financial aid and by providing advice
and training facilities. The world-wide desire for a de,
termined and co-operative effort has been recognized in
the United Nation' designation of the 196os as the De,
velopment Decade, and the need of the developing
nations is a challenge to those countries whose lot is
easier. It is a challenge that we in Britain must con,
tinue to accept. ,

William Shakespeare Again!

f kI



For serious students of Shakespeare, the openi'ng of the new Shakespeare Centre
at Stratford-upon-Avon on 22nd AFril was one of the mcst significant events
commemorating the 400oth anniversary of the poet's birth.
The entrance exhib'rion hall has a lifesize bronxe figure of William Shake,
speare. The face of the figure is turned towards the birthplace garden -- but
it is an eyeless face. This is a deliberate act by the sculptor who intends the
visitor to imagine for himself the sort of eyes 'Shakespeare had. The double
door in the far wall lead to the Stratford Room lecture theatre.
