We have been saying that this will
be a peaceful and happy-Carnival.
Since then, Government declared a
censorship :n the Calypso contes-
tants; they replied by forming their
own association, getting sponsors
to help them in a competition, and
are tonight holding their finals.
We are in no doubt that Govern-
ments censure is because most of the
calypsoes, and certainly the best
ones, are not in favour of the rul-
ing party. They have kept those
lyrics off the air. It remain to
be seen who will be the victors.
In the meanwhile, all,sorts .Df
cfrr.ival queen and princess compet-
itions have been going on; young---
Paula Larocque won the Teen Age 9on-
test; she is a student at Goodwill

THAT GREEN MARKET PRICE
The green market price for Windward
Island Bananas has increased by 5
from 210 t9215 per ton. as from r0
January 1978. Although the price
payable to growers is 13.10 per lb,
the Management Committee has decid-
ed to continue t-o support the price -
oDnsequently, those growers who del-
iver their bananas at boxing plants
will be paid 13.250 per lb. Growers
who earn sleeping and dehanding bon-
uses will receive an extra 0 per
Ib, so that in total the grower can
earn 1U cents per lb.
