Senator Paul Slinger, Minister of State for Tourism, left the
State on September 24th to be present at the official opening

of the Grenada National Tourist Office in Munich, Germany, which
is scheduled to take place within the next few days.


Disclosing this information, Mrs Gertrude Protain, Secretary of
the Grenada Tourist Board, said, "The upsurge of interest in
Grenada from German travellers makes the establishment of this
office a step in the right direction in creating a viable market
in Germany."

relations expert and Grenada's Director of Tourism in Germany,

will be in charge of the National Tourist Office in Munich.

OPPOSITION LEADER TO ASK QUESTIONS.

Two questions have been submitted by the Leader of the Opposition,
Mr Herbert Blaize, for reply by Prime Minister Geiry at the next
meeting of the House of Representatives.


The first question asks the Prime Minister to state "when the
Report of the Supervisor of Elections for the 1972 General
Elections might be expected to be laid on the table of the House".


In the second question, Mr Blaize wants to know how many members

of (1) the Regular & Auxiliary Field Defence Force, (2) the
Royal Grenada Police Bend and (3) the Grenada Cadet Corps, were
taken to Carriacou for the 1975 August Holidays. The Leader
of the Opposition also wants to know what the cost was for
transporting these men to and from Carriacou and of maintaining
them there.

he was able to make contact with Mr Verne Heaslip of East York,

Ont aio, who was then Governor of District 707, Ontario, Canada,
Through this contact, Dr Watts said, the 50 Rotary Clubs of
District 707 were assisting the 44 clubs in the Caribbean in a
variety of projects designed to promote the welfare of the

community.


Citing an example, Dr Watts said that the Rotary Club of Grenada

had already received about EC$6,000,00 for its Market Gardening

Project. Land had been secured and this money was being used
for fencing and tools. Five young men are already being trained
in market-gardening by personnel of the United Nations Development
Programme and the Caribbean Community secretariat. "This is a

pilot project", said Dr Watts. "The aim is to train 10 young

people every year and equip them with skills to make a decent
living and a positive contribution to the community."


Dr Watts said the new Governor of District 707 (Ontaric), Mr

Geoffrey King of Scarborough, Ontario, was carrying on the assistance

programme arranged by his predecessor, and Dr Watts felt that the

1976 Convention would provide opportunity, not only for the
Caribbean to receive further help, but for Rotary Clubs in this
region to make their contribution to the development of Rotary
International.

ROTARY CONVENTION USEFUL TO CARIBBEAN.

In an exclusive interview with NEWSLETTER, Dr John Watts,
immediate past President of Rotary District 404, said that the

1976 Convention of Rotary International would be very useful as
it would permit Rotarians from the Caribbean to make conott
with some 15,000 of their counterparts coming from 151 countries

of the free world.


District 404 comprises 44 Rotary Clubs in countries of the
Caribbean basin stretching from Cayenne to the Bahamas, and,

when this District was created last year, Dr Watts was elected
its first Governor. The Governor of District 404 is now
Mr Jean Passant of Martinique, and Dr Watts has been elected to

the 1976 Convention Committee of Rotary International which is
charged with responsibility to oversee arrangements for the
Convention in New Orleans next June.

Referring to a recent news item that Prime Minister Gairy had

had talks with the British High Commieaionerl, Mr unrT or1uhor

Diggens, on the subject of an emergency grant for (anong other

things) an electrical generator for Grenada's island ward of

Carriacou, Mr Herbert Blaise, elected Representative for Carriacou

said today (26th) it was a "deliberate attempt to deceive".


Mr Blaize, who is Leader of the Opposition in the House of

Representatives, said that, over three years ago, a generator

had been purchased for Carriacou from British Development Funds.

Since then, he said, the generator has been lying on the docks

in St.Georges and no one could predict what condition it w'ld

be found to be in now. Mr Blaize said talsMr Gairy was

having with the High Commissioner relative to a generator for

Carriacou could only be related to the transportation of the

three-year-old generator from the St.Georges docks to Carriacou.


"This is an obvious attempt to deceive the people of Carriacou

that something is now being got for them", the Leader of the

Opposition continued, but, the people are not deceived."
