Last week's strong headline lead-

insecticide, Alrin, drew the attenitW
of many thoiLhtful citizens of Dominiica

.ons of the banana borer. A civvic-mind-
ed, representative meeting at Mr. Ted.
Boyd's house with medical ,agricultural.
tind ecological interests attending
1:robed the subject thoroughly a. couple
of nights ago. To us,, the situation ap-
peared slightly better than Mr. Agar''s
letter presupposed. The Banana Assoc-
staion is well aware of the dangers in-

Last week I quoted the words of Pro-. Sir Arthur Lewis, President of the
Caribbean Development Bank and a world-renowned economist in his own right,
about the present standing of the productive sectors in the economy of
these smaller Caribbean islands. Dr. Lewis noted that agriculture was in
a bad way; that very little is stirring in manufacturing and that "the
tourist industry is.the only lively sector". I am sure that we must give
credit to Sir Arthur for knowing what he is talking about.
Actually, ad even before he so spoke, the more discerning elements in
Dominica had arrived 'at the same conclusion and that is why in recent years
we have seen here the beginnings of an hotel/tourist industry in the DOm-
inica which the present Premier thought did not have a potential in this
direction in the near future. Following the lead established by the Fort
Young Hotel -41 the planning of which goes back to the period when F.A.
Baron was Chief Minister of Dominica -- there are now several hotels in
the field, al conforming to the size and structural pattern which is now
accepted as appropriate ,to our conditions. Much of the Aot-so-plentiful
capital in Dominica has gone and is going into the equity of these hotel
companies and 'there is> still an unsatisfied demand. So that it can be
said that despite the Premier's prediction to the contrary, an hotel/tourist
industry is in process of development locally. This is a trend which may
well be accelerated if and when the Government ever makes up its mind to
accept the long standing offer from the Conservation Foundation of the
U.S.A. to help! establish a National Park in Dominica. If and when this
latter event occurs, not only will it give a fillip to the tourist industry,
-but it will have vindicated +.he early stand on the matter taken by the
Opposition Party, informed on thia matter -by THE STAR.,
So we :have now come to take the tourist industry seriously. iviuch thought
-has been given to it and the hdrd-earned cash (and also credit) of num-
erous Dominicaps has gone into it. Additionally, revenues of this State
'are increasingly being spent in very recent times in promoting the tourist,
industry and that outstanding salesman of Dominica, MT. !Baron, has agreed
to give his services in the drive to popularise this island.
It follows Froi What has been said that the private sector (16ng'active
in this direction) and the Government seedor (of very recent awakening)
have realized the possibilities of tourism-for Dominica, more particularly
in the light of the not-so-bright picture which agriculture, according to
the Report of he Board of Govdrnors of the Caribbean Development Bank,
presents. The'hotel/tourist industry is therefore rapidly becoming an
important industry with us.
Now of all industries, with perhaps the possible exception of banking,
there is none which is. more dependent ,for its success on favourable psych-
ological, political and social conditions.' It can be a profitable work-
giving industry when all is going well, but let there be any upset in these
conditions, and the industry can vanish overnight with capital, lost and
work opportunities destroyed. We have seen these things almost happen -in
this region in recent times. A year or two ago, some Antiguans took it
into their heads to be openly antagonistic and abusive to North American
tourists comiiwg to' vacation in their land. Immediately the word was
passed around in North American tourist circles and a slump ensued in
Antigua's tourist industry. More recently and in Trinidad a year ago, the
violent demonstrations taking place there with clear overtones of host-
ility to persons of the whit race produced a backlash which badly acted
the tourist industry of the whale'-of the ~aexm n Caribbean and to some extent
is still with us. Can we in Dominica afford the similar luxury of chasing
away persons coming to pay for enjoying our scenery, climate and other
amenities? Can we turn our back upon and destroy this opportunity of pro-
viding work for our increasing hordes of unemployed youth?
And yet, according to information which I-have. this is exactly what
we are doing. There have been several cases of local persons accosting
bite visitors to this island and-if I know -of them, the authorities
must know much more. (continued on page four)

TWO MATTERS OF MOMENT by Androcles (from p.2)
By the same human rights which we invoke for other circumstances,
every person has the right, once allowed into a country, to move unmol-
ested while he does not offend against the law. This is, if you like, a
moral canon. But additionally with us, financial self-interest dictates.
that we do nothing. silly to destroy an industry which holds promise of
becoming an important source of national income. We should never forget
that there are other areas of the world with equal or better tourist at-
S traction anxious to increase their share of the tourist industry.
The authorities must not allow a few misguided malcontents so to damn-
age the economic fabric of our society without cause that numerous inno-
cent persons Will thereby suffer. It is-to prevent this kind of thing
that Governments exist. I am surprised (or am I really?) that no steps
have been taken to put an early stop to this. I continue to be of opinion
that any' dangerous trend should be handled firmly from the start and
> before it takes root. Instead of a. lot of the inanities coming over WIBS,
I should have thought that a talk by a leading Minister along the lines
of this piece would have been more useful to the community. After all,
encouraging the hotel industry is done in other ways than selling hotel
aites at favorable rates to chosen ones. The trouble, of course, with
those Ministers is that they allow Party political considerations, even
of the very distant future, to colour all their activities 'or inactivit-
ies, even though in the process they lower and distort human values. If
'they have constituted themselves ("by the vote of the majority of the
,people") spokesman and guardians of the welfare of the community, they
must live up #o the demands of these positions, more particularly as they
S re overpaid to do so.

Hon. W.S.Ste.vens, in his column last Saturday in another local news-
paper, has joined the ranks of those discerning persons who see in the
Police commitment to the Leblanc Labour Party as the most sinister event
currently taking place in this State..
Let me mako it clear, however, that by no means all the policemen are
involved in this unsavoury business. There are many including some in the
senior ranks whO are definitely not to be blamed or included in denun-
ciations of this great evil developing in our midst. Their hands, we
believe, are tied because their subordinates are encouraged by Ministers
to.ta~k-their eues from them rather than from. the officers. There are many
members of the Police Force who do not like what they see in this attitude
of some; of their confreres. It is, in the main, the middle grade of the
Force, particularly those who are the games-mates of the Premier, who are
that way involved and their militancy makes up for their numbers. Only
as recently as the last public meeting of the LeBlanc Labour Party in
Lagon. Roseau, a group of them (not in uniform, it is true) was seen wildly
cheering the speeches of the platform speakers. I should like to repeat
that it is my view that this is the most sinister thing happening in Dom-
inica at the present time. Why do I say so?
In the final analysis force is what counts. It is force which has to be
used to contain evil-doers, and to prevent subversion. It is also force
which has to be used when Governments; become oppressive and ride rough-shod
ower their citizenry. Under our circumstances, force resides in the Police
and the public can only feel assured if it believes that thisrepository
of force. subsists on the basis of impartiality as between political parties
and groupings;. More than that, it is only under such conditions that the
Police can secure the respect of the populace and, even more important,
its co-operation in their day-to-day activities of maintaining order.
Thus, as I see it., this involvement of the Police in Party political
matters has been brought about by the actions, activities and attitudes
of the Premier-, ,and this is yet one more of those briaches of the basis
of civilized and democratic living by which he will be remembered when
he leave -- as leave he must --.the public scene.

Yesterday,the latest issue of
the "Marian Messenger", St. Mary's
Academy school papery was brought
to me by my young nephew. The Editor,
Moderators and Staff should be com-
plimented for their very good effort.
The reading material is excellent,
typing perfect and illustrations
very good. This paper, produced by
the students' efforts, shows just
how much talent there is amongst
our youth of S.M.A. So for God's
sake, boys, develop such gifts, in-
stead of following the unambitious
few by just loafing at street corn-
ers and on doorsteps., letting your
precious hours tick away. It is mos
