on the CARIFTA Agreement, we see a flurry-of activity Tfrom the .ecrtar-

It was therefore with pleasure that I learned, that..during .the recent
visit, of- CARIFTA officials to Dominica, opportunity was. taken even in the,

understand that .at a public meeting arranged for thos6 CARIFTA offi~fials,
Mr. Stafford fLestrade distinguished himself. in that direction, -with mahi-'

The contrary attitude of our Government in taking -withot protest alL':
the hurt inflicted on us by CARIFTA in the holy,.name of regional' integra-

for special associate status in the European Economic Community under the ,

.Now let us compare this attitudeestoquested. of. the Associate:d States

The Windwards will probably now bea-: the brunt of the effect of Pyffes
bringing in bananas into Britain from the Ivory Coast, Surinam etc. even
long before Britain enters the EEC. This is one example of the kind
of regional solidarity practised by the more knowledgeable CARIFTA

It was with something of a shock that I read in last Saturday's
papers that the Jaycees are proposing to ask Goverrnent to join with
this voluntary body in organising the 1972 Carnival/Masquerade. I have
never heard of anything more backward and reactionary. This proposal
certainly does nothing to enhance the reputation of the organizational
ability of the Jaycees.
The conception of the role of Government among the members of a
group who, no doubt, consider themselves progressive in outlook, is
sadly striking What has the Government got to do with organizing Carn-
ival? What is its, or any other Government's, competence to do so? Is
this,the Jayceds' way of getting the Government to nominate to.the pro-
posed Committee those very persons who now organize Carnival? I shall
Applaud the Premier if he rightfully turns downtthe Jaycees' proposal
S and asks them to look around for the appropriate persons to form a Coi-
mittee which should be. a voluntary.Committee of Carnival lovers and of
persons With ability of organizing. Government's role should be confined
Sto helping with funds which aay be required. The bulk of the population
likes Carnival and it is therefore perfectly in order that its taxes.
S should be used, if necessary, to subsidize this national fiesta. But
that Government should or ganize the thing must send a shudder through
persons who know better. It seems to me that there are persons who would
be'prepared to give their very souls into the keeping of Government. How
very backward
Incidentally, it is more than time that steps be taken to invite
the carnival public to get going on composing patois songs for the next
Masquerade. I1 was clear from the WIBS survey that the mass o. people
feel that the :re-introduction of patois songs into the national fiesta
is Urgently required and while the Jaycees still remain in control,they
should issue a notice to that effect which will bind any other group
'that may take over. We cannot expect to give the usual two months'
notice and ge t anything worthwhile.

SI understand that Mr. Bradshaw, the Premier of St.Kittt-Nevis, is
sacking some of his senior civil servants and that he postponed taking
this ste p until he was, safely returned to: power. Two days after his re-
cent victory at the polls, he sett the necessary machinery in action.
I must say that I am longcng to see an example made in one of these
wretched Asa~ciated States of ruling politicians who trample underfoot
the rights of other people.
It is almost certain that these civil servants have been persons
who have not allowed themselves to.be prostituted in the service of
politicians. I am almost sure that these were manly characteras or rather
strong-minded pnesp, since women were also involved, who would not crawl
on their bellies to the Bradshaw regime. That we have not had similar
incidents he re is to be explained, I think, in the difference in out-
look of senior civil servants of St. Kitts and of Dominica, not in the
difference between the r uling politicians.
I hope the Piblic Service Commission of St. Kitts is manly enough
to do the right thing or resign.

(See page 11 for a n'reprint on the dismissal of the St. Kitts Civil
Servants. Editor).;
