Train All Immi-
grants First,
Says Williams
By Nicholas Carroll
Dr. Eric Williams, Prime Minis-
ter of Trinidad and Tobago. who
was in Britain last week on a private
visit which rapidly turned into a
series of informal talks with new
Labour Ministers, has been tentative-
ly discussing his ideas for properly
pl a n n e d immigration of West
Indians into Britain.
"It was quite wrong", he said,
"that a West Indian should ever
have been allowed to set foot in
Britain in nid-winter wearing a
featherweight suit, quite untrained
for any specific employment. There
should now be a complete review
of the whole problem, with a plan
for propf.r training schemes and
medical inspections for immigrants,
both in their home country and in
Britain. Just as we would not ex-
pcct Britain to send a convicted cri-
minal -to cake up residence in Port
of Spain, so we should not send
anyone with a..criminal record to
Lond n,"
"I would be ready to cooperate
fully'with the Labour Government
in a new approach to the problem,
There are- many sectors in Britain
where West Indians could function

said to have declared that the West

Another Techni- I Victory Again For
cian For Calibishie


-- --- SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1964


NE of the best counsels given to us by
a literary giant was "do not use very
very often". Ever since then, we have
been chary of that qualifying term; but on
this occasion we fiel it is justifiable in an
editorial headline.
Queen Elizabeth I had no husband;
Queen Victoria had a Consort who took
seriously his weighty role of husband of
the Sovereign, father of a future Sovereign
and intimate adviser to the First Lady of a
rapidly growing Empire. Her Majesty
Queen ElizabethtII has a gallant husband
who is a dependable partner in Common,
wealth enterprise, father of three royal sons
and a Princess: this is the imian who lends
a touch of debonair humour to the privi-
lege of sharing the Queen's life and work.
H. R. H. the Prince Philip, Duke of
Edinburgh, is also a descendant of that
good indomitable Queen Victoria.

Most of us know that Prince Philip
-..-. I., r' reecce. a country famed for
-.,ica o,-.- -- ....
sport. He was educated in Britain; but
when the news of his betrothal to
"Princess Elizabeth" was announced, a
certain amount of opposition flickered
briefly in Britain itself. "Should our
Queen marry a foreign-born personage "
some newspapers asked, and various mem-
bers of the public echoed this query.
But the manly Prince from Greece pressed
his suit; it was acceptable to the one who
mattered most, and to her parents; and
who dares say today that the Duke of

Edinburgh has not upheld the best tradi,
tions of Commonwealth democracy, as
well as the peculiarly subtle concept of
Commonwealth royalty He is a British
subject, and as we may say in Dominica,
"one of us."
We appreciate the things which the
Duke of Edinburgh Eas done for both
youth and industry, two matters in which
he is particularly interested.
Now let us speak frankly of local
affairs. The welcome we are giving
Prince Philip, husband of our Queen,
falls short of the material preparations
made by Martiniquans for a recent visit of
General de Gaulle. Why ? Partly, though
not entirely, because our local buildings
are in general poor and shabby. Here
only nature canii afford to be lavish,
unanimous and magnificent; but we think
the Duke of Edinbnigh may be satisfied
with that, especially hen nature's bounty
is leavened by the o' )us good nature or
the citizens of *'" d. eve"" ie who

being the husband and partner of the
Constitutional Monarch of the most po,
werful and enduring kingdom in this
modern world. You may regard the rule
and regalia as purely symbolic: but the
fact is that it exists, and that a diversified
Commonwealth supports its existence
and honours the symbols.

S.D.L. (Blue Bird) Prince of
Marigot has just received his Diplo-
ma in Building Construction from
the Bennett Col'ege. The course
deals in a practical way with the
principles involved in the erection
of buildings of all kinds besides
joinery, glazing, plumbing and
electric wiring, ,le al:o studied scaf-
folding, ventilation, drainage and
interior finishing.

Motor Cycle Dead
Pond Cassi Constable Clement
Guiste had a 'bock whci he returned
to the Police Sta:ion and found that
the generator, chain and magneto had
been removed from his motor cycle
in his absence. It seems that a ma.
had come to Guiste's colleague,
Corporal Prevost, and told him that
Guste had asked him to remove the
parts. Prevost expects to be able to
to recognize the man when the police
catch up with him.

Calibishle Rounders Team scored
a notable victory over Marigot in
their game lost Sunday by an in-
nings ind 42 runs in which H.
Afiica top-scored with a magnifi-
cent 41. Marigot batted first for
half-an-hour making 56 runs; when
Calibishie batted they made 140
in rI hours. Marigot's second in-
nings failed to produce more than
31 runs, so that the day's play end-

A confident Calibishie Rounders
team is prepared to face any chal-
lenge, any time.

remote time, but certainly within a
couple of hundred years or little
more. The Black Rat, which is
rapidly becoming extinct in many
countries, was undoubtedly brought
to Dominica by british ships. This
is the rat whose fleas certainly caus,-
edthe Black Death in 1584 and
killed about a third of the popula-
of Europe. It is slightly different in
shape as well as in colour from the
commoner species which is called
the Brown, or Norway rat. This
rat is spreading rapidly all over the
world, and is the chief enemy of the
old Black Englsh rat. The Norway
rat attacks the food supply where-
ever it may be, but since foods are
more likely to be stored in kitchens
and basements, it is there the Nor,

Rats are very like human beings.
They are certainly intelligent and
they fight immediately any stranger
whom they suspect, as we do oursel-
ves. They are the principle animal
enemy of mankind and we have
every right to defend ourselves against
them in any way that is effective, but
even to rats we should feel morally
obliged to respect the as enemies,
and not to demean ourselves by
wanton and insnsite cruelties, which
however unpleasant may be the por-
tion of the rats, it is ten times more
horrible in its effects upon us, for
cruelty does not rest in one place,
but spreads rapidly : like an infectious
disease'- and very easily indeed to
inferior human beings.
Mature rats usually breed three or
four times in a year, and have been
known to produce as many as twenty
in a single litter. They seldom have
less than ten young at a birth and may
begin to breed at four months. Ob,
viously if a very large number of rats

at least as many rats as persons, and
hat is often very much under-rather

than over-estimated. In Dominica
there are about sixty thousand people
today, or to take the lowest figure we
may be sure that there are 40,000.
Forty thousand rats consuming half
a pound of food each means
2o,ool0bs of food of one sort or ano-
ther every week. That comes to the
trifle of 1,040.oo00 bs in a year,
which is a very high tax to pay for
something we do not want. But of
course accidents happen to rats as to
men. Arithmetic c an deceive us
when we are not absolutely sure of the
figures we first start with, but if we
cut the figure in half, it still leaves a
very large quantity of food much of

By Graham Norton

CAN Britain's new govern,
ment survive That is
a question that many are
asking. With a majority cf
cnly five over the combined
Conservative (303 seats) and
Liberal (9 seats) opposition,
the smallest majority since
the war, its hold on power
appears weak. Lord Artlee
in950o could not keep office
with eight, and had to appeal
to the country, going down
to defeat and ushering ir, in
1951, what was to be 13 un,
broken years of Conservative
government. However, poli,
tics cannot be entirely reduced
to mathematics. The will
to rule is important. And
there is little doubt that in
x95I the Labour Party was
exhausted from its stay in
$ffic. The party was rid-
dled. With internal dissatis,
factions, indeed, Mr. Wilson
himself resigned in the close,
ing months of Mr. Attlee's
administration. Yet, with
such a tiny majority, Mr.
Wilson has undoubted diffi'
posed to overcome them :
First, Mr. Wilson must
have to himself recognized
that there will come a day,
sooner rather than later, when,
in a division in the House
of Commons, the Govern,
ment will be "defeated."
All illness, a missed ccail
nection in London's busy
traffic, and the unavoidable
absence of a couple of minis,
ters overseas, and the Labour
party in the division lobby
will be a little less than the
Conservatives a n d t h e
Liberals in the other lobby.
The tellers will advance on
Mr. Speaker and hand him
the result. He will announce
the figures. And the Chain
ber will ring with derisive
shouts of "Resign"..
Mr. Wilson will rightly
ignore these taunts. For,
unless the Government is de,
feated by the permanent de,
fiction of some of its sup,
porters, then he can go to the
House the next day and get
what was defeated by acci,
dent through. All this
wastes time, of course, the
most valuable item on the
timetable. A modern gov.,
emment has so much to do.
And if the Opposition per,
sists with this tactic, then they
can effectively be accused by

Ithe Government of obstruct, Roseau & Portsmouth.
ing the nation's business (as, We publish last week's Har,
indeed, will the House of hour Log for record purposes.

Lords if they try to frustr te
the Labour programme).
This might be an effective
weapon to Mr. Wilson
electorally, when he goes to
the country in an attempt to
increase his majority.
One happy result that
might come abou: is that the
Commons will stop making
a fetish of attendance at divi,
Sins. Mr. Wilson is known
to believe that this is a great
time-waster, for Ministers and
: Private Members alike. So
the convention may be estab,
lished, to the benefit of sue,
ceeding generations, th a t
M.P.s only vote on the mere
important occasions.
But Mr. Wilson also be,
lives that the spirit of the
SGovernment and party is all,
important. T he Labour
Party, he thinks, must always
,.be kept on the go. There
must be no faltering at the
top, no hesitation, otherwise
dissention may break our.

Thunderbirds First Defeat
For the first time this season the
boysin red and white have gone un-
der to their opp o ne nt s,
Empire beating them by a goals to I.
The match was relatively high in
excitement especially in the second
half but disappointing in the poor
brand of football displayed. To
their credit, Empire did well to keep
the Birds forwards at bay, but the
Birds were never really themselves
and had their wings clipped twice.
Skipper Henry Elwin scored both
goals for Empire while Barn netted
for Thunderbirds.
This win means that Empire have
qualified to go into the seri-.finals
of the knock out competition.
D.G.S. have already beaten Sham-
rock and Blackburn will play Spar-
tan at a date to be re-fixed.
On Sunday a local representative
side beat the H. M. S. Decoy by 6
goals to nil. The visitors, though
excelling in ball control and posi-
tional play, lacked punch and drive
when within the area. Also they
were unfortunate to lose their goal
