Sharing 500 Years Of Experience-,-
Saiors cf the newly-independent countries are now
taking-over the making and revising of the maps of their
own coastal waters. It is a job that never ends. Many of
them are now training with the Hydrographic Departient
of the Royal Navy, whose charts are bought by the ship,
vown-rs 'f all nations. Nearly oneanda-half million
Admiralty charts are sold every year, for there are few pkces
where a ship can be sailed without them.
Mountains In Tie Sea
Surveys by the Royal Navy, in one year alone (I959)
and apart from those round the British Isl-s, were carried
out in South East Aia, British Guiana, the West Icrdies,
the Bahamas, the Persian G'lf, the Pacific Islands, and the
China Sea. Some were to see if there is enough depth of
water for new, big ships, and many were for the benefit of
local people. In Antigua, for instance, surveys were made
to frd the best places to put wharves for the loading of
sugar and bananas.
Even ii the middle of wide- ceanm, depths have to be
taken and written into charts. If a ship becomes unable
to find out where she is in any other way, by measuring the
depth of the water, she can find her- way home. This is
because surveys have shown that the bottom of the odeans
have their hills,' valleys ?nd high mountain ranges just as
has dry land. The deepest known valley, and the greatest
dcprh of water..yet found. (35,640 feet, or nearly seven miles)
isathe Pacific Ocean.- It is known to seameni t of all
stations as the. Challenger Deep, after 'the *Royal Navy's
hydrographic ship Challenger, which'inade the soundings.


This new survey instrument can measure distances up
to 50 miles (to within a few inches) by day or night,
in all weathers.

THE rescue of the nine French miners
entombed this month in a shaft far
below the surface of the earth for over a
week without food or water and with
hardly any air is an outstanding example
of an accident that turned into a miracle.
When the nine men limped out into the
daylight, each one wearing his dark
glasses and each one supported by a
special doctor, it must have seemed incre-
dible to their waiting relatives to see them
emerge alive.
In a one-time bestseller "The Bridge of
San Luis Rey" the most fascinating part
of the book is headed Perhaps An Accident.

lives were curiously and secretly interlinked

A Tribute To The
Barbadian Chol"
By H. K.
On Wednesday 22nd.
July, the choir for the Ani-
mation of the sick and In.
capacitated arrived in
Dominica to take part in the
Dcminica Drama and Music
Festival in Cummemoraticn
of the Quatercentenary of the
Birth of William Shake,
speare. The choir was unde-
the direction of Mr. Harold
Rock who is organist and
choirmaster of St. Leonard's
church in Barbados. The
choir was started in 1944
when Mr. Rock felt that
music should be taken to the
poor unfortunates who were
shut away in the Infirmaries
and other institutions in Bar,
bados. After a time Mr.
Rock felt that it was selfish
to restrict this work to the
poor in Barbados, and he
decided to take the good
work to otber institutions in
the Caribbean. The choir
has made tours co .Grenada,
St. Vincent, St. Lu cia,
Antigua and Dominica, this
being the choir's second visit
The money for these tours
is obtained through concerns,
Secular and Sacred, dances
On this occasion th. choir
was accompanied by Mr.
Norville, a very promising
tenor of the operatic Style,
Miss Norma Bowen, Sopra,
no, Mr. Erwin Brathwaite,
Violinist, and Mr. Irvin Har,
ris, tenor. Also accompany,
ing the choir were the Federal
Harmoneues ld by the Min,
ister of Health and Com-
munity Development
(Barbados) Hon. Da Costa
Edwards, and top dancers
Messrs, Hilton Springer and
Darrel Steec. The choir
took part in the opening pro,
gramme of the festival and
gave a performance at the St.
Gerards Hall along with the
Dramatic Society of t h e
Federal High School (Barba-
dos) The choir also gave a
performance of Sacred music
on Sunday 2nd August at
the Anglican church, Assist-
el in the Service at the
Methodist Church on 26th
July, and sa ngfor the inmates
of the Infirmary, the Hospital,
and the Mentil Hospital.
The choir left for Barba-
dos on August 5th. The
members of the choir would
like to say a hearty "thank
you", to all those who made
their stay in Dominica such

a enjoyable one and look
>rward to returning to these
orzes in the future.

West Indian

by Professor Brian
ister of Trinidad and foba-
go, is one of the few Prime
Ministers of emergent Common-
wealth countries to have arrived
in office w'tnout having been to
prison. Instead, after studying in
the normal way. in Eng'aod. he
went to the Unt.d State where
he became Professor of Poli ical
Science at Howard Univers ty,
Washington D.C., become an
expert member of the Caribbean
Commission, and returned to his
own country as leader of Trini-
dad's history. The Peoples
National Movement, led by
Williams. came to power in
1956, negotiated Trnnidad's inter-
nal independence from Crown
Colony rulq, and led Trinidad
with great patience to accept the
idea of West Indian federatio ,.
Manley's political incompetence
and the insularity of the Jamai-
can electorate scuppered the
federal idea, and since that time
rrinidad and Tobago have gone
their own way as an independent
In the course of this history
Dr. Eric Williams has emerged
as one of the very few charisma-
tic loaders in toe whole world
who retains an attachment to
constitutional forms, to persua-
sion rather than fear, to self-
help father- than hat holding,
For instance, 981 per cent of
the total 48 miJians f.ie-r,_ar-
plairWa Drianced from purely
local resources' surplus revenues,
for local loans without assistance
from outside. Trinidad and Tobago
are moving into the modern world
at a great rate, and to a large extent
the deciphue repaired to do this in
a territory well known for its unre-
strained individualism has been the
example and leadershipp of Dr.
Williams himself It is clear that if
the progress continues in this way.
the next decades will bring Trini,
dad and Tobago an international
authority totally disproportionate
to its size and population.
It is, of course, rtre for a Prime
Minister in officeto produce and
publish works of scholarship. The
first of these books, Capitalism and
Slavery, is in fact a reissue: it was
originally pubhshed some twenty
years ago. The second, a History of
the People of Trinidad and Tobago, was
written in the months before Trini-
dad and Tobago finally became
independent in 1962. Williams has
always been acutely conscious of the
need to integrate Trinidadians into
a self conscious' community and to
break with the energyconsuming,
hatredinspiring racial divisions be'
tween African, white, Chinese,
East Indian, and the intermediate
variants. This second book is un-
doubted!y a product of this concern,
and some of it is rousing stuff in a
full-blooded but old fashioned way,.
In terms of scholarship there is no
doubt that "Capitalism and Slavery"
is a better bo)k. It is a work of
original scholarship tracing the
economic basis of Slavery in the
development of the colonial societies
ofthe Wet Indies and the States;
it shows how the triangular trade
of exports to Africa traded for slaves
fos the plantations, whose produce
was then retuned to Britain, was

not only the making of the ports of
Bristol and Liverpool, but also lay
at the very origins of the Industrial
Revolution itself But this i; not an
arid book to be shut away in the
dilty libraries of the economic
historian: it is a story shot through
v'ith compassion, understanding,
and sardonic humour. Williams
understands that slavery was not one
form of massive exploitation: that
the indentured white servan: ws as
helpless and broken ar hii slave
successors, and that men w-re treat,
e] like beasts in England as weil as
in Jamai:a.
