SR.SEE OF PRIORITIES by ANDROCLES
The recenti-"sacking" of Mr.Frank Baron as Chairman of the Dominica
Tourist Board by Mr.Armour, the Minister. of Trade and Industry, shows up
cl-early the evil nature of the Party of which, it is said, he is the de-
signated heir-apparent. The action is typical of the whole history and
philosophy of that Party.
Mr.Baron has not been re-named after one year's service, not because
he is not competent to head the Tourist Board in fact, there is no one
in Dominica better fitted and more suited to this office. During the
ho1rt period as Chairman of the Board, he had already given a new look
to its activities. MIBaron was "sacked" because Mr.Armour, misreading as
at he always does moods and tempers, had thought that in so appointing
Mr. Baron he would also have commanded the latter's political thoughts
and associations. What a hope. "Strange, piteous, futile thing
Alack, thou knowest not
How little worthy of love thou art!
Whom wilt thou find to love ignoble thee?"
(Francis Thompson: "The Hound of Heaven")
So when in the concatenationof legislation reducing the powers of
the Roseau Town Council, promulgating the dangerous Banking Act, the
Grenada Declaration, dissolution of the Roseau Town Council and assorted
repressions, Mr. Baron spoke out his mind, this was too much for the .Min--
ister who felt that he would have his own back if he relieved Mr. Bafon
of his-opportunity of service in-the economic development of Dominica,It
is of no consideration to the Minister that alternative industries are
urgently required anid that tourism is onje of them. Of course, this is
not surprising seeing that the Government has never-'een genuinely keen
on tourism, proof of which has been its foot-dragging in that direction
despite continual pressure Trdm the Opposition Party (foreseeing the dif-
ficulties into- which the"banana industry would likely get).
SThus the"Miiister and his Governffient feel that they have punished
,Mr. Baron. -'In reality, they have punished-all those persons,- taxi-
drivtrs,-hafdcraft workers, hotel employees, food producer etc. who
depend on an accelerated development of the tourist industry for a better
While on the subject of tourism, I have been hearing on several occaS-
ions of physical attacks on tourists by some persons opposed., like the Min-
isters (1 suppose) to the tourist industry. T find that there is too much
mtlly-coddling of persons-with criminal intent in Dominica. Hate is spread
ing, slowvly"'but surely, and I feel that the Ministers are partly to blame
for spreading hate in oominica. I*'cannot see why the Gov-renment permits
a fe* persons to uWdermine the economic base of the community to the det-
riment of employment opportunities of so many other persons. Again a
matter of placing a few botes above the welfare of the whole community.

It was pleasant to see the coverage given"by the three neWspapers of
Dominica to the celebrations marking the centenary of the coming of the
F.M.I-; Fathers to this Island. It was the least that they could do in
recognition of the work the Fathers have been doing for our people here,
particularly the rural population.
Not-so, -however, Radio Dominica which, despite the editorial suggest-
ion of one of our contemporaries that the principal commemorative event,
namely, the Mats at the Cathedral, should be broadcast, failed to do so.
This was the only discordant note in what was otherwise a fine public
reaction to the occasion. -.
' Where, I ask, is the sense of history of some persons? Radio Domin-
inica will broadcast drivel by the hour. It will advertise who is whose
sweetheart (and sometimes those sweethearts are timid about revealing their
names); It Will give the most marginal news from the'other islands (a
compliment not reciprocated); yet when it comes to event (contd. page 4)

SENSE OF PRIORITIES by ANDRCLES _. Continued from page two
when it comes to an event occurring oice in a hundred years in Dominica,
our 'national radio' is cold.and unconcerned.
Mutt the people of Dominica be 'fed with ojly calypso and. soul and
the dding' of Ministers of Government? Would not tle thousands bf Dom-
inicans In the"'rural areas --those whom you see going to or coming from
Church on a Sunday morning as you drive through the-various villages -
have been glad to listen to the highlight of the centenary celebrations
over theTr radio? Really, Radio Dominica must do better than that. In
all fairness, this is not one of the numerous occasions when the blame
must be put at the door of Ministers,
I"wish to correct a statement Made in the otherwise well-reasone-
Memorandum on the state of the banana industry produced by the Steering
Committee of the recently forMed Farmers Union and submitted to the
Premiers of the Windward Islands. I always believe that a case is strong-
er the"more accurate it is.
In paragraph (D) occurs this statement:
"As time 'goes by, the Government of these States have allowed
Geest Industries to develop a stranglehold on variou -'crops on
which otir very livelihood depenTs. Grapefruit, for one."
Writing with full.knowledge in the matter, I must deny the assert-
itn that Geest Industries has had'or ever tried to have a stranglehold
on the grapefruit exports of Dominica. So far, grapefruit producers are
satisfied with the transportation and marketing service which Geest has
given and there is no complaint, rather only mutual respect.
Perhaps the, reastdr for this satisfactory state of affairs is-'to be
f6uxnd in the main point made by the 'Chiirman, Mr. Armnantrading, in his
inaugural meeting of the Farmer-s' Union, namely, the necessity for prd-
dticers to elect persons competent to represent them in matters pertain-
ing to the industry, The kind of cabbage-stalks Whom banana- producers
have been Wont to elect and Government to nominate -find no Corres-.
pLoidence in the grapefruit industry, I w4ll admit that the job"of the
Banana Assotiation Vis-a-vis Geest is a muth more complicated one than
the relation betweeni the Citrus Association antid 'eest. This-, however,
is additTonal reason why the tesit brains, in banana production should
have been used in the representation of that industry.
While on tile subject, I- should like t--r~call to readers'" minded
that several months ago I wrote in this column that rather than spend
his time devisiiig repressive legislative measures, the Premier would
have better -spent it in having a critical look at the .contract under
which the banana indiistry of Dominita operates.
This was written at a time when it became obvious that our banana
industry was headed for deep. trouble. .
The Premier, however, preferred to 'expen.d his energies-on producing
the Banking Act, the Grenada Declaration of union with Guyana and the
Bill' for distolutioni of the Roseau Town Council, It took a milTtant
demminstratiOn of banana producers to push the PremTer into making a sem-,
blapce,of interest in the banana contract by an unnecessarily expensive
display of delegates falling over each other to St. Lucia.
A display .Party-politically motivated, of course.

THOUGHTS ON WEST INDIAN by R.H.L. (Part I)
Mr. Bryson Louis'may have conveyed more than he had in mind when
he wrote: "There is no other way-to save the West Indies from economic
collapse than collateral-agreement".
Like both the proponents and the opponents of the Grenada Declaration
I believe that the peoples of the West Indies should aspire to form a
West Indian nation. But like Mr. Errol Barrow and Sir Hugh Wooding I
realise that it will take a-long time for this to come about.
I write this mainly to encourage further discussion of the topic.The
factual situation mast-be faced objectively. It is the result of history,
but there are continuing reasons for its-present day existence. Distant
authority and control on-which local opinion is or believes itself to be
powerless-to exert its influence is resented. Hence the appeal of the
old slogan: "No taxation without representation".
Judge Pemberton used to say-that in the West Indies the constitutional
issue was raised when it was; only that the people were dissatisfied with
a bad or unpopular administration. Federation unfortunately cannot exor-
cise'the always haunting spectre of a distantly controlled and on that
account suspect administration.
This I think may have been one aspect of the problem of the siting of
the federal capital. There was something more than the financial and
prestige implications. All except the one unit where the capital was
located were subject to the control of a distant administration which
differed from its metropolitan counterpart in this very important reject
that whereas"the metropolitan-pbwer supplied aid to its colonies,- the-
Federal administration was financially-dependent on its constituent units.
And West Indians do not like helping one another. Politically they act -
.towards one another lIke the Jews and the Samaritans that have no dealings
with-each other, but nOne of them is willing to be a goad Samaritan.
Here is what the Governor if the Leeward Islands, Christopher Codrington,
wrote when he was disappointed with the reply received from Barbados to
which he had appealed, for help" to withstand the French threat at the
outbreak of the Wari of"the"Spanish succession: "I am very well Satisfied
that Barbados has-no inclination to serve or save these islands,rhakp
one of those islands to help another, because if a Sugar Island be lost,
so much the les s the-commodity is made, and consequently ye price is
raised". The feelings of the islands towards one another have not changed.
The Leeward Islands Federation foundered on the same rock that broke
up-the larger Federation of 1958. As far'back as 1893 the Dominican spokes-
men giving evidence before Sib Robert Hamilton's Commission advocated
withdrawal from the Federatibn because Dominica was not getting enough
from its federal connexion and all the other presidencies at one time or
another expressed dissatisfaction with having in times of prosperity to
contribute to the federal budget in greater proportion than those presid-
encies that were worse off. The process of dissolution began when Domin-
ica seeedad in 1939,.
Yet there is one-'instance of the control of a metTropolitan power being
ace pted by West Indian territories satisfied to send representatives to
a Parliament thousands of miles-'away. This is the case of the French Over-
seas Departments of French Guiana,-Martinique and Guadeloupe. Assimilation
into the political, social and-economic system of the French Republic with
representation in the Seeate and Chamber of Deputies is apparently sub-
mitted to by our French neighbburs without-'much objection. It is true of
course that the territories benefit substantially by their association
Might it not be, considering the-difference in size and potentialities,
if some unioft like that envisaged in"the Declaration were"to come about
that'ours would be a similar relationship with the mainland- territory?
Guyana obviously would have the role of the metropolitan"centre-and the
smaller island territories would be its; satellites, having essentially a
colonial situation,-mostly-'exporting primary products, importing manu-
factured articles and dependent on-.the mainland territory for expertise
and development aid. (Conclusion Part II will appear next week).
