Trinidad Minister
Revelations Before
On Tuesday this week, after
public attacks by Tiinidad Liberals
and the DLP opposition, Minister
of Home Affairs and Deputy Prime
Minister of Trinidad and Toba3o,
Dr. Patrick Solomon, resigned his
post. Six days previously, a Police
Corporal had told a four-man
Commonwealth Commission which
is probing the operations of the
Police Force in Trinidad of the
events of January 27th 1962. At
around two o'clock in the morning
Dr, Solomon's stepson Michael
BeauSoleil was detained, charged
with obscene language and throwing
missiles. The Minister of Home Aff-
airs then arrived and directed that the
charges against Beausoleil be can-
celled: he tcok the young man away
with him from the Woodbrook,
Police Station.
A statement on Tuesday night
by Mr. Andrew Carr, P.R.O. fcr
the People's National Movement,
revealed that Dr. Solomon has not
resigned his seat in the House or
Representatives and was still a
a member of the P.N.M.

"_ iltIons of
Dear Malam, I have
read with gladness in the
issue of the HERALD for
Saturday the -5th August,
the article entitled "Patrons
oCEducation", written by oujr
Ex-Head Teacher, Mr. S. L.
Jolly, with regard to some
memorable work done by
Mr. C. G. Philip, Mr. Joffre
Robinson, and Mr. Cliftona
Dupigny during recent years
for the advancement of hig'ih
education in this Colony for
our young boys and girls
who showed the ability to
learn to become professionals
in the various branches of
present da y knowledge.
Though I am living in the
Northern part of this Colony
and do noi go into Roseau
very often, but as I am keep,
ing in t.uch every week in
our local newspapers, I am
able to say that Mr. C. G.
Philip is one of our broad,
inidei Merchants who has
-done all-that he couid for the
seventeen young Dominicans
whose names are given in the
article some of them have
already attained to their pro,.
fessional qualifications, and
tlhe others of them are on the
road which leads to the goal
of their educational achieve,
ments. Since the publica-
tion of the article, my admira,
idon for Mr. C. G. Philip
has become very great, and
.so far as an acknowledgment
of his good work is concern,
ed. I believe without a
doubt, that the officials of the
government have already
taken special noie of what
has been written about him
and whtcn the opportune time
shall have presented itself the
wel! deserved honour shall be
Mr. Joffre Robinson is one
of the enthusiastic workers in
our education department in
this Colony. He is always
a live-wire since he has enter,
ed there. I remember all his
activities during the time he
was the Secretary of the
Dominica Teachtr; Union;
and the many dances, aani
special efforts sponsored by
him to raise funds to assist
the families of poor boys and
girls who were faced witl-
financial burdens in the town
of Roseau and its surround,
ing areas. I remember the

free permission which was
given at that time by the
deceased A. C. Shillingford
who was the Manager of the
Phoenix, and the Albert
Hall was allowed to" be used
without cost by Mr. Jofire
Robinson and tce other pro/
moters. From those years to
this present Roseau is blessed
with many conscientious men
and women who are always
ready and willing to contri/
bute in cash and in kind to
the benefit cf the present
generation who are willing to
learn educationally.
And I am abaut to bring this
short comment of mine to its close
on ExTeacher Jolly's Article
"Patrons of Education", I must
add a fvw words of appeciation to
what has been said about Mr. Clif-
ton A.H. Dupigny who is one of
our brilliant Barristers At Law, and
Solicitors in this our colony, who
throughout the past years has done
some good works that shall remain
for many years in the annals ofth;s
Island's history. It is the fact that
Mr. Dupigny is the only gentleman
who fought for the granting of more
Government .Scholarships to our
Grammar School, and for the e-
duction of its fees to meet the needs
of poor parents; His walking out of
the Legislaiive Couicil a few years
ago as referred to, was rot surpr.sivg
to me at that time, for Mr. Dupig-
,y is a gentlemen who have the
guts and the backbone to stick to
his political beliefs and ideas. Mr,
Dup guy cannot be persuaded to
compromise and political flattery.
It is the men and the women who
are sincere with their whole heart for
the general improvements of this
Colony. Political and otherwise"
will confirm these personal statements
of mine. Mr. Dupigny as I have
been studying his p'st services in all
the offices in Roseau and his general
knowledge of the affair; of the entire
Island including education he can-
not be swayed by any bias and
insinc :re political C ol e a g u e.
Though the Pcttersville Estate was
not his own possession, the people
who at present are occupying that
area must at all times remember that
Mr. Dupigny used all his legal in-
fluences to help the Government to
acquire that adjacent Estate ovwr the
Roseau River which can be called
at any time Roseau No 2. and one of
its Lanes Dupigny Lane. Mrs.
Editor I am afraid my pen have got
control over me, and I must put it
aside and thank you for the space

Our Island cannot afford to pro'

Dominica, so the Government
appears to wish to destroy the few
people by disease.
It is a shame to see the toilet by a
place which is called a bus stop by
the Roseau New Bridge.

island, so much so, that a man was

"To give Honour tci
Whom Honour is due"'
-The Law & The Prrphcts-
Dear Madam, I read
t h e articles 'Pat Stevens'
Notebook' and 'S t ua r t
Williams' Notebook' in the
In his Notebook Pat
Stevens is giving honour and
credit to the present Govern/
ment for good works done in
building schools and roads
and so on.
Stuart Williams in his
notebook is condemning Pat
Stevens for giving credit to
the present, Government for
building roads and schools-
for this work Stuart Williams
says were the plans of the
D.U.P,P. Government.
Taking these two argu,
ments into consideration I
here quote from the Holy
Scripture: "It is more
blessed to give than to
receive". We all know that
Dominica has no money of
her own; and that Britain is
g.vilg her 'mor ey to build
roads and schools etc. When
Dominica receives the money,
whichever Government is in
power has to use that money

for the purpose for which it
was giver. Engineers are
( aled upon to use their skills
in planning t h e s e con/
s.ruct:or-s of roads, of
schools etc. The engineers
in turn call upon their Fore,
men who employ labourers
or technicians. All these
people the Engine:r, the
Foreman, the caterpillar man,
the man who uses the pick
and shovel, the mason, the
carpenter use their know,
ledge to const'ucc either road
or school. Only then is
here any sign of develop/
ment. To wLi(h of these,
ihen, should honour and
credit be given for develop,
ment: To Eritain for giving
the money, to ,he people
engaged in the construction
or those who blow bubbles
in the air ?
I hope Mr. Pat Stevens
and Mr. Stuart Williams will
not be prejudiced :to tell us to
whom this honoiir'is due.
Since .945 Britain has
given over two hundred and
seventy five million pounds
for the development:of her
Yours sincerely,

Oh September 14 Barclays
Bank D. C. O. opened a
new branch at 300 Park
Aveinue, New York -- its
second in the city and the
i40o0tin a network cover,
ing 41 countries. This
strengthening of the place
held by Barclays D. C. O.
in the American banking
scene is made possible by
a relaxation of the New York
State banking law that at one
time prevented foreign banks
from offering a full branch
service. Following the lift'
ing of this restriction, Bar,
clays' boMce in New York a:
120 Broadway -- where the
bank has been established
since 1890 was last year
converted to a full branch
and thus.became able to ex,
ploitrfely its situation in the
heart of the Wall Street busi,
ness district. The new
branch on Park Avenue,
opposite the WaldorfAstoria
hotel, is equally well sited,
and will serve the increasing,
ly important midtown busi,
ness, residential and shopping
The opening of a second
branch of Barclays Bank
D. C. O. in New York
emphasises the international
character of the bank's busit
ness. It also reflects the
growth in the number of
visitors to America from terri
stories in which the bank is
represented, and the steady
increase in trade between
those countries and the
United States.

Computer At
Olympic Games Results
British equipment which
can feed thousands of results
a day into a computer system
has gone into operation at the
Olympic Games information
centre in Tokyo. The
manufacturers annou n c e d
recently that they have sup,
plied the machines which
will turn the results from 32
event sites into material, for
the computers.
At present the system is
being used for registering the
7,500 athletes taking part in
the Games from roth to 24th
October. Later it will start
turning out, at high speed,
the various kinds of inform-,
tion needed for the press,
broadcasting and television
authorities of the world.
A spokesman for the
makers said recently "Judges
at the event sites -- and some
are many miles apart will
have their results passed into
a machine for rapi trans/,
mission to the computer
centre. Here they will go
through our machines which
can set up punched cards
or punched tape for feeding
into the computers."
The centre will rapidly
collate and print out a conti,
nuous stream of results and
situations reports and apart
from hundreds of issues for
press rooms, copies will also
go back to the event sites.
About 2,300 miles of cable
will be used in joining the
evznt sites with the computer
centre. BIS

THE GENERAL PAPER taken with the Advanced
Level General Certificate of Education Subjects is an
Ordinary Level paper divided into three sections, with at
least five questions in each. Candidates are required to
answer one question from each of two sections.
Section A. Historical, social, economic, political and
philosophical topics.
Section BI Science, including its history, philosophy,
general principles and applications, mathematical and
geographic tpics-:
Section C, Literature and language, arts and crafts.
Questions will not necessarily be set on every topics.
The General Certficate of Education Examination is
a subject examination, and each subject is assessed by a
system of grades.
A candidate may not reach the Advanced L, vel in a
subject, yet he is not failed, but given a pass at Ordinary
Level if he so merits it.
it is wrong for persons to assume that the pass Level
in the General Certificate of Education Examination is be,
low that of the School Certificate. A Credit in the
School Certificate Examination counts as a pass at Ordin,
ary Level in the G. C. E. The G. C. E. affords the
student the option of choosing his subjects, which may be
fewer in number than those required in the former School
Certificate Examination.

a highly austere man, and I replied
that I could think of no better way

me for my advice and went away

told me that a decision bad been
given in his favour. "No doubt the

The Minister for Comnuni/

Honourable Sir,
Due to the
fact that the Government has
thought it fit to rent the
Y.C.W. Centre of Mahaut
as a building for children
from 5 years and over to be
schooled there, and children
frcm Standard two (2) will
be leaving the Mahaut
Government School to attend
schooling there also; I beg
to state Sir, the conditions of
the Campbell road from
Mrs. Leah Harry's shop to
the Y.C.W. Centre which
is less than mile.
That piece of road Sir,
has no drains or outlet on
either side to carry the flow
of water coming from th-

hills to the river. This flow
of water has been constantly
making its way through the1
road and has caused all that
tarrish on the road co be
washed away. All the boul,
ders placed in the road are
now above earth, thus caus-
ing damage to wheeled traffic
and will be very dangerous
to school children who will
have to walk this road dur,
ing school hours.
I would ask Sir, that
early attention be given ta
this piece of road for the
safety of the infacts that will
be walking to a:ad from the
I understand Sir, that the
school will be opened on
Monday x4th Sept"mber, as
a toilet has just been crcm
pleted to serve the school
The parents will be very
thankful if Government will
see its way to tarnish or Pi.ch

benefit of these infants who
will be art-nding s ch ol 1

SIX years of c h e
England revisited 1-
lenges the eye, the hea, id
the, mind, Th- irst impress
sions, from London Airport,
are those of spaciousness,
monumental buildings,
sweeping rods and flyover
bridges: the old Londoner is
soon lost: the airport bus
takes new strange and seem.-
ingly devious routes to get to
Victoria: one-way streets
abound and the taxi from the
terminal to the flat costs
i2,6d. instead of 5s-. That
was early on a Sunday morn,
Later in the day, the full
farce of the motorized revolu,
tion became clear as the
traffic piled up on the short
stretch of road between the
stop lights outside die flat.
In this one length of road
just over a hundred yards
from end to end were jammed
as many cars as exist in the
whole of Domi'lica im,
movable and over Putney
Bridge the stream of Sunday
traffic slowly !edged its way
out into the country.
TI,;. .-c -nouse does not
.. c situation.
Sis slow in London,
but, considering the immense
increase in the number of
vehicles in the last ten years,
the traffic does not move any
slower. Bottlenecks (li k e
that at Nottinghillgate) have
been cleared away, many one,
way streets introduced, and
not a few flyovers and other
traffic aids sped the driver.
When the motorist gets out
into the country he will find
for the most part that he can
get from place to place quick,

er than heretofore. Well,
calculated speed limits (signs
saying "40" or "So" are
well-placed) enable traffic to
move, even if in a convoy, at
reasonable speeds. A trip of
70 miles to or from London
can, most times, be made in
two hours thanks to long
stretches at 5o miles an hour
or more. Double carriage,
ways are frequent and in
some cases the new motor,
ways (such as the M i from
London to Birmingham)
allows the ardent motorist t-
run his car flat-out for miles
at a time (or until it breaks
down !)
It seemed to me that the
biggest revolution had taken
place in the thought and con,
versation of people due to the
omnipresent "celly." Tele-
vision is a drug that speedily
gels hold of young and old,
rich and poor alike.
Children talk in terms of ad,
vertising slogans and whistle
jingles about ice-cream or
potato chips. Every child
can tell you of the terrible
things that happens to a girl
who does not use the right
deodorant or fails to brush
her teeth with the toothpaste
that contains "that well-
known formula prescribed in
hospitals, XYZ 439". Cul-
ture is predigested, crime
never pays (nor immorality)
and the sheriff or marshal
canters on his palomino
across ten million television
screens for several hours daily,
A few serious programmes
get through, notably "Moni,
tor" (which may, with fresh
insight, tackle anything from
"pop art" to modern music)
or an American sociological

series called "East Side, West Side"
which portrays the emotional
and practical struggles of a
social worker in situations of
racial violence, juvenile de,
linquency or slum re-housing:
the problems are sho ~n in
stark reality, the solutions, as
in real life, seldom adequate
or satisfactory.
The highest virtue of television
lies in the coverage of sport, the ab-
solute'y ideal view of tennis at

Wimbledon, the viewer behind the
test bowler's arm, the godlike obser,
ovation of the showjumping of the
horses. Never before could so many
people have had such a grandstand,
binocular better-than-umpire sight
of the best athletes performing their
feats of gamesmanship, swimming,
running, jumping, riding. No park-
ing of cars required, no queueing,
no pushing through turnstiles. The
best of all events, singled out for
your especial delectation is presented
to you in your own living-room at
the touch of a switch.

To me, however, the most dec
pressing factor of television is te
presentation of the n:ws. ".very
event, whether an incipient world-
war or the escape of the minor con-
vict, is presented in the identically
pitched key. All are significant and
portentous. The politicians are in-
terviewed and supply the same ob-
vious hanali:ies whether direct from
Whitehall, by Telstar fiom America
or Eurovision from Europe, Jour,

Down Payments on Fertilizers on Credit
APPLICANTS for fertilizers on credit are reminded of
the 20o down payment which must be paid before the fertilizers
can be issued out.
This works out at $1.82 per bag and it will save the
time of all concerned if growers would apply only for
quantities of fertilizers within their means after taking into
account the down payments required.
Th" Fertilizer Credit clerks are heavily pressed with
processing the large numbers of applications on hand and
there will be no time for alteration of vouchers and the
complications involved when applicants find they cannot

which a church was built subsequently.
The Arabs occupied Malta in the year 870. They in
turn were driven out 200oo years later by the Norm:ans of
Sicily, but, in the meantime, the Maltese had acquired the,
speech of their Muslim conquerors. From this source is
derived the language of the present day, modified by cn/,

the island had become part of the Kingdom of Sicily.

Tne writer has been studying
primary school educdion intensively
tur the past twenty-focr years. He
has discussed this difficult problem
and its vital olution with the senior
member s of the st.ff before 1960.
This method of modern primary
education had been pursued in
Great Britain for many years. It had
been tried with a lot of modifications
at Wesley Government School by
the writer, wit.a provisions for boih
girls and boys wt'o did gardening
and carpentry with a qualified
teacher. The method can be follow'
ed in Dommnica with a lot of modi-
fications in the densely populated
school areas, like Roseau, St. Joseph
Mangot, Portsmouth, Mahaut and
Grand uay.
When pupils have passed the
age of twelve years ena cannot
qualify acadenmcally for Standard
VI or can only reach the borderline
ofihhe Fifth Standard and cannot
cross it, in spite of good conseuen-
tious teaching, they should be draf,
te I into the industrial art classes
where they would continue to learn
the aRs connected with thzir indus-
trial art subjects. The experts call
this method, learning according to
their "Centre of Interest". '.his

is properly handled by the right

English s the most important to
the school subjects but arittimedc is
the most d.iflic ult subject
to teach. Ia arithmetic the
classes must be graded, whereas it
is not so important in English. Un-
less grading is practised in arithmetic,
standards will continue to be low.

Barring accidents before and after
birth, and having consideration to ac-
cidental damages to the brains of
children and rdilts, and to adequate
accommodation,there is no reason why
most Dominicans cannot be properly
educated according to our means.
Proper nutrition asa plays an essen,
tial part in successful learning and
teaching. Backward or retarded pu-
pils should be diagnosed and treated
and ,. record should be kept.
The sight and i-aring of some pu-
pls are often, defective. These c'efects
should be examined and treated me-
Unless pupils are fi: for learning,
teachers should not be blamed or be-
come scapegoats.
The late Dr. Simon, a Domini-
can and a leading world doctor,
made an attempt to examine the pu-
pils of San Sauveur School. That
was a commendable good job. The
same process was tried at Wesley once
after World War II by a foreign
doctor then stationed at Marigot.

G. 0. E. Results Analysed

I results released recently by the Education Depar.r.ent show some significant im,
provemcnts in performances particularly by the Dominica Grammar School and the
Wesley High School. Comparisons are supposed to be invidious yet competition
among our secondary schools should be encouraged. In order to make fair compari-
sons the HERALD has prepared a table showing the percentage of students (in term of
total school enrolment) passing the various levels of examinations. To keep the record
straight, however, we also use th, same percentage figure multiplied by the number of
subject passes obtained per school.

Blackburn Scores First Victory
The 1964 D.A.S.A.
football competition g o t
underway at Windsor Park
on Sunday last with the al-
most traditional fixture of
Blackburn vs. S artan and
once again it was Blackburn
by the narrow margin of

A sizeable crowd, which
grew as the game progressed
witnessed a fairly entertaining
struggle. SFartan sharpened
things soniewhat in the early
minutes, mainly through
some fine play by Smith and

ces when close to goal..
Blackburn, ?however, netted
from their fitsc real scoring
opportunity, Clem John

scramble in the goal mouth.

ball descended direcdy into

Casimiri aidcompany started
some real thrZsty movements,
allowing Docirove to quel!
the Blackburn attempts and
this resulted in a goal by
Roberts in the 55th minute,,
The score was 2-I when

called the halt.
Thunderbirds Edge Out Empire
Empire had their colours
lowered in Thursday's first
division fixture, when Thun,
derbirds moving faster and
playing harder scored a r nil
victory over them. While
producing nothing spectacu-
lar the encounter sustained
local interest mosdy from the
fact that the teams were even,
ly matched and at anytime
anything could happen. The
first half produced the best
footballof the match and
aEtir a series of raids Thun-
derbirds ne i t e d through
Baron. This lone goal
proved to be the decider.
Goalkeeper's Guye of'Birds'
