RENAMED GHANA:
Gold Coast To Receive Independence from Britain

1

1

By ERNEST GOGREY
ACCRA, Gold Coast, W st Africa
(M.-Early this month an addition
will be made to the ranks of the
world's sovereign nations.
On Wednesday, the African Gold
Coast will become "Ghana," and
with the new name will come a
change of status. Ghana will have
full independence within the Bri-
tish Commonwealth.
Britain has encouraged and
guided African national leaders
with the result that there has
been an absence of bitterness be-
tween Bitain and the leaders of
emergent Ghana.
Rapid Advance Attacked
Some people, both here and in
Britain, have feared that the 94-
vance of self rule has been too
rapid. Others feel that Africans
can not learn to govern themselves
unless they get the opportunity to
do so.
The Gold Coast is serving as a
political laboratory where experi-
ments will continue for a number
of years to test the ability of the
African to govern himself on the
principles of Western democracy.
Covering an area of 92,000 square
miles, the Gold Goast is princi-
pally an agricultural country, sup-
plying half the world's cocoa. It
is also rich in such minerals as
gold, diamonds and bauxite. Tim-
ber is exported in large quantities.
Queen's Representative
At present the Gold Coast enjoys
some measure of internal auto-
nomy with control of foreign af-
fairs in the hands of the colonial
secretary in London. All matters
concerning defense and internal
security are in the hands of the
governor, the Queen's official rep-
resentative.
Since 1850, when the first Legis-
lative Council was set up for the
area, developments in local gov-
ernment and constitutional ad-
vances have given the Gold Coast
people more and more control of
their own affairs.
In 194,9 a wholly African com-
mittee was given the task of work-
ing out a constitution. This com-
mittee's recommendations formed
the basis for the Gold Coast's
movement toward independence.
Single Legislative Chamber
The constitution was introduced
in 1954 and brought the Gold Coast
to the threshold of full self-gov-
ernment. It followed broadly the
British parliamentary model, ex-
cept that it provides for only a
single legislative chamber.
Election to the 105 seats is by
secret ballot with direct universal

NEW ADDITION-Ghana, the African Gold Coast will become a self-governing nation on March 8.
Re ceiving Its Independence within the British Commonwealth, it will serve as an experimental politi-
cal laboratory for a number of years to test the African's ability to govern himself. With removal of
thea powers of the Queen's governor, Ghana's independence will be completed.
