Seymour, Literary Co-or-
dinator for Carifesta, brought
the local writers up-to-date
on the arrangements made so

far for Carifesta which s
to be held from August 25

main aims of. the meeting in
the words of Mr. Seymour
was "to see how local writers
can make good literary use
of Carifesta."
The involvement of young

many topics discussed. At the
