The nefs of continuing falls in the price of bananas at this time of
the year is most ominous. Taken in conjunction with similar bad trends
in other departments of the national life, there is every reason to fear
for the future of Dominica.
-I distinctly recall the Deputy Premier saying at the recent meeting
of the House. of Assembly that the economic strength of Dominica is such
that it is the envy of many of the neighboring islands. This is the.
trouble with persons. whose. standards (either for themselves or for others)
are. low: they are satisfied with so little, A rather similar view was
expressed at the same meeting by another Government Minister who said
that the forthcoming institution of a system of Government agricultural
credit was taking place in its due time as the Government has been hith-
erto been concerned with other activities. As though with its. variety of
ministries, the Government cannot undertake varied business at the same
The vulnerability of the Dominican economy is being made manifest. The
Government, starry-eyed, has been for some years now emphasising manufact-
uring industry as its favourite and most likely line of further economic
development. Agriculture has. only been cursorily mentioned and the Budget
provisions for agricultural development during the 10 years that this
Government has been in power is an index of the importance attached to
agriculture. I am almos't Acertain that more money was spent to influence
the outcome of the last General Election than has been spent for agri-
cultural development (I do not include stereo.typred expenditure like sal-
aries) for all the years taken together that Labour has been in power.
It is only a couple of weeks ago that we hear a Government Minister
urging the large scale planting of coconuts, a vital point made in the
Opposition Party's manifesto a year ago. The Government's cavalier treat-
ment of the representations ofthe Citrues Growers Cooperative Association
for incentive measures to enable it to put up a proposed million-dollar
Packing House to permit the large.-scale development of the grapefruit
industry is in strange contrast with the same Government's financial
concession to so many insubstantial ventures, mainly expatriate.
Again, for a long time the Opposition Party has been pressing for Gov-
ernment. to take more seriously the tourist industry. The Government brush-
ed these views aside, saying it saw no future for tourism in the.near
future; damned the authoritative Zinder Report which had indicated some
of the prerequisites for the development of tourism in Dominica; uncerem-
oniously jettisoned the. offer of the Conservation Foundation to help to
take steps in establishing a National Park as a main tourist attraction;
decreed that lands should not be sold to foreigners who could conceivably
assist us with further economic development and provide badly-needed funds
to locals-for intensifying agricultural extension. And when, at long last,
the Government decides to increase funds provided for the promotion of
tourism, its. Party publication and some of its r-epresentatives lyingly
state that it is the Opposition Party which had opposed tourism and, re-
ferring back to B.C., add that the Government. of 1971 is providing more
funds for promoting tourism than did the Government of 1960'
Still germane to a consideration of the Government's policy (or lack
of it) for economic development is the waste and politically-oriented ex-
penditure which could be useed instead to further economic development. It
is not an e::Iy--'_-:tion to say that much of the taxes collected by the Gov-
ernment is. used fo:- pursuing silly purposes calculated to maintain it in
office indefinitely. We have seen no substantial development arise, from
our own taxes. All important undertakings such as the construction of new
roads and schools have come directly froa funds provided by the United
Kingdom and Canada. Things are reaching such a pass now that we find the
authorities of the Caribbean Development Bank proposing to take a direct
hand in the agricultural development of Dominica, a proposal which a self.-
respecting Government, as the Hon. WV.S,Stevens so rightly pointed out in
the House of Assembly debate, should not have tolerated.

SERIOUS TIMES AHEAD by Androcles (from page two) And yet, despite all
this, we find Dominica still carrying up the rear when it comes to gettjig
funds from the Regional Development Bank. For example, a small State like
St.Kitts gets. loans of half a million dollars each for agricultural credit
and for industrial-credit: Dominica gets half a million for both services.
St. Lucia and Grenada get huge slices of the Bank's funds for their sev-
development projects I do not however blame the Bank authorities. One
look and one conversation is enoughf.cr:-pp rspicacious persons like the off-
icers of the Bank to assess the calibre of the Government repres-
e-tatives' they are dealing with -- persons who (by their .ayinga) work on
a basis of elass; envy and jealousy; persons perhaps with complexes and,
generally, unfamiliar with financial matters. An evidence of this was the
way in which they were made to look silly by the promoters of the SIPA
bubble, a thing, which could hot have- happened to people who knew what
they were about..
Thus practically all of the so-calle:d prosperity which was enjoyed in
recent years did not arise- from the workings of this Government. The ban-
ana industry the main base was set up by a quite different type of
persons Roads came from direct grants fortheir construction from the
United Kingdom Government, as did also at the request of the Dominica Gov-
ernhint, funds, for the: large-scale constructions of Police stations all
over Dominica. The other main base of the so-called prosperity came from
the remittances of Dominicans abroad a purely adventitious circumstance
as far as this Government is concerned,-
If therefore the economic life of the community is in grave danger, we
must look askanes, at those who have been in command of it during the past
decade and who seem to have made no provision or alternative arrangements
against the evil days which now appear to be coming, over both the banana
industry and the earnings of invisible exports from our nationals abroad.
The. policy pursued except as. regards the few who have benefitted dir-
ectly has been such that the bulk of persons of capital and initiative
("friends" of Labour always excepted) have held back in uncertainty of
what is the true intention of the type.owhich has constituted the Govern-
ment which has ruled for these past ten years. And so, with fear and trep-
i'dation, we watch as a kind of economic nemesis appears about to overtae us.
At the same time we see and sense a kind of breakdown in our social
life. There are hordes- of unemployed and unemployable youth on our streets.
Crime is proliferating. The Police seem reluctant to deal with certain
categories of breache.s aof the law. Incidents which strike fear for the
future into the hearts of citizens- abound. These are. spoken about in whisp
ers. in intimate conversation, There. are. no plans for dealing with them and
there is just a general drift towards the abyss. Really, things would
not be very diffe-rent if there were no Government at all. The. trouble
is that too much time and national resources have been spent in polit-
icking and too little: in social engineering and planning. It is now very
late. and those who, at great pains, ensured the ri';e to and maintainance
in power of a Government essentially based on negativism will now have
their fill,
Lot me. give one: example of this Government's; negativism: this
o"rek, we learn, 106 Peace Corps workers have come- oct to the Eastern
Caribbean to give service. Every single island has: requested and is
receiving a number of these Peace Corps workers: some twenty, others ten,
the least, six, Dominica is. the only island not receiving because a
complex-ridden Government some time ago decided that we must not in
future have s.ch workers lest, I suppose, they Bingg some measure of
enlightenment to those masses who (it is. felt in the same circle)
should be more profitably be kept in ignorance,. Wlha.t can you do, or
better still, what should be done, with such rulers ?

Miss World's visit was a sehsation-
al event to all Dominicans for it was
the very first time that a Miss World
had visited our tiny Island, and She
is one of us West Indians. All the
people made an effort to see her,
even though some of the villagers
deen inland didn't see her, they pro-
bably heard all about it from Jeff,
and Co. on the radio.
Well, as niost people know, Miss
World is very charming intelligent and
has a good figure (this I must say
because of the manner she carries
herself). Actually the very first
time I got a good look at Miss World
was at the official opening of the
Sisserou Hot.l, which took place on
tfi-.atesday, axnd for a change she did
not have a turban round her lovely
black hair. After Miss Jennifer en-
tered the lounge a complimentary
speech was. given by Mr. F.A.Baron (he
said the Sisserou was a very uncommon
bird just as Miss World was rare,but
it was found in Dominica.)Jennifer
then spoke arnd declared the Hotel qpEn-
She said she was having a wonderful
pleasant stay 210 roople had dinner
with her there.
On Wednesday night I saw Miss World
again at the Arawak Fashion Show in
which there also were some of our4
own beautiful- girls performing in
Mrs. G, Nasief's seamless costumes
and in..t.2 h etc. As for Miss rld
she was out of this world. The best
part of the show was when Parry
.Bellot askeC. Miss World to marry him.
In reply she said "the boy doesn't
know what he is taking on". Parry
then said "I will think it over."
As Parry sa '1. later in the programme
he had been close to Miss World for
the past few days, this is true for
he has been making it up to her and
do you -envy him? When he was about
to hand her a bouquet on stage, he
gave her a kiss beforehand. However
I beat.Parry because I gave her my
heart it .was a wooden heart I start-
ed in the woodwork class of Goodwill
Junior High School and I finished it
at home and decorated it with silver
stars. She has taken it home with her.,
