Up to today, the banana situa-
tion in D'ominica looked really
precarious. Now we hear that
banana growers will receive a
total af $1,000 per acre ($00 in
cash and some $500 in "inputs"
for their fields which are cleared
of the d-ead, but toe long-neglect-
ed, leafspot disease. This, it is
said, will put new life into the
banana industry, and by July it
is hoped that production will be
Meanwhile, a news release from
DBGA tells us that the green mar-
ket price for Windward Islands
Bananas in the UK Market dropped
by 7 from 227 to 9220 per ton
on Monday, 8th January. As a con-
sequence, the pricm payable for
bananas sold t boxing plants are.;
11.75 cents per lb.

It is a fact that the St.Ritts

electoral campaign. The results,
strongly contested and repudiated
by P.A.M.'s Dr. Kennedy Simmornds,
are (at first glance):-

It is indeed nice to hear
mention of Village improvements
with active groups having their
ovn Council and such-like. But
meanwhile, couldn't the youths
check -on names of new settle-

That name should cease, since
there is nothing 'gutter' about
the character of those hard-work-

judging from the few I know who
are living there,
