The Tenth CARIPTA Council of
Ministers met in Dominion this week
and adopted unanimously a vital
resolution to seek a group relat-
ionship with the Enlarged European
Economic Community. There are no
constitutional Impediments (says
the British Government) to parti-
cipation by the Associate States.
After some bickering on the
placement of industries in less
developed States, and with certain
questions outstanding, agreement
was reached on a sch S-; for thi,
harmonisation of fiscal '..c tives
to industry, also on a cor00.17. ex-.
ternaI tariff and c is n rtec-
tive policy for GATFTA. The
More De3veloperd C,:nt.,'Is g"uaran-
tee to buy in incr asking volume,
over 'a number of years at negot-
iable prices certain "agricl-
tural comaiJlfti es capable of In-
creased production in the Less
Developed Countries."

CADEC ANDU

All these telescopic names like
.. EC1, CARIFTA, OCL, and so on rep-
resent long titles which are too
much of a mouthful to keep repeating
Now we have the regional Churches
abbreviating their latest venture
too, CADEC really means Christian
Action for Development in the Car-
ibbean; in its recent Iyi 'rationale'
we note that the wor4 Caribbean
occurs seven times and the words
Christian and Catholio not at ll.
It is concerned with community and
'conscientisation' and social need.
As suah, CADEC will certainly
attract the ancommiltted as Moral
Rearmament did. Civil Servants in
particular should find it a great
outlet.
-From 7-9 Sept. GADEC will hold a
seminar at the WI buatding,Domlnica,
(We' shall print details nearor the tnei).

STHE DEATH OF THE HEART 'by John Spector
Last week I referred to "the iianerelY0y od .and- kind people" of
Dominica, but I am nowod.wondering how long it ill be before Dominicans
lose their kindness ai-d goodness in the face of all the rubb:iSahb'ing ...
pumped'at them -- from "Black Cry" and a belated Ward Report to the.
oft repeated phrases shouted at:'ithem '". s are the best" .. .Yest .. It''s.
true ... Two. for one..". Even. regional meetings of V.I.Pb. can only
talk of .'economic, integration'while .the 'nearest approach to..getting.
West Indians to get to know each other is called 'cultural exchange'.
Thank heaven that St. Vincent., St.S Luoia and Grenada are proposing a
more sensible Freedom of Movement approach which can mean a real mutmial-
understanding at the grass roots.

Speehes made.at CARIFTA and other similar conferences are, I real--
ise, bound to be on the slightly pompous hoard-room level of a Chamber
of Commerce meeting (although Secretary-General Willian Demas has the
knack of making economics sound almost human) but emotive speeches in
L.S.E. jargon about 'agricultural protocol', fiscal incentives' and
infrastructure will not cause any.West- Indian heart to beat with patrio-
tic. fervour for idxegration. Granted that .Man, especially'West Indian
Man, cannot live by heart and soul alone, neither can he nor will 'he
live by bread alone (whether. made of imported flour, cassava farine or
breadfruit).
In his opening address at the Tenth Meeting of the CARIFTA.Council
Mr.Demas pointed out-that it -was the first Ordinary Meeting of CARIFTA
,tio be held. away from the Guyana HQ; it was taking place in a less de-
veloped country whose future he regarded optimistically; and then he
expressed gratitude to, the Government of Dominica for hosting the meeting.
On the contrary, this Government should be grateful to the Members
for attending; they badly'need same~hing to prop up their morale which has
suffered some severe shocks' up to and after the 16th of December, and.a
-gathering of heads of certain States among whom St.Vincent, Jamaica,
Barbados anid Montserrat are 'first-timers' is a bit of a boost, also
filling a few eirp hotel rooms and giving depressed taxi-drivers some.
fares for a change, Nr.Kamaluddin Mohammed, an experienced chairman,
played his part competently as usual; but as everybody knows, the real'.
discussions, at.these meetings are the asides, and the real obstacles
are the human and home-local ones in every Minister's heart, and the
real get-togethersb are over drinks or meals.' Thus there is always an air
of obscurity about these.conferences and the. public -is left wondering.- ....
what it is, all about, until suddenly they read in a newspaper that
so-and-o, has. happened, something to do with tariffs and Brussels nomen-
something., .ECLA or OAS. .There are still an awful lot of people in'.
these islands who have not the faintest' idea what the words 'Common
External Tariff'.or. 'Enlarged.irEropean Economic Community' really mean,
and even Arington Riviere can't turn,'those into patois: so most people
are .cut off by a veil of obscurity from.the true negotiations and they
are extremely -unlikely to find out unless- their pockets are affected.

Njow. I turn to the true death of the heart which is taking place in.
Dominica today. This has nothing to' do with 'CARIFTA and trade and. in-
dustry as such. An attitude of. ulnindness aind incivility -is abroad.
It occurs 'in shops (the' way customers are-.-tieated), Government. depart-
ments andj"~'hools, on th' streets and among motorists. It is eontagioug.
If people are constantly' rude or' ukind"to you, you find yourself."sub-
eonsicously taking it out'on the next fellow. I am bound to.say that I
suffer ,very little from it myself, .save' indirectly; but. the reports are
so ~a uuent and so ominous that they are worth attention. (concl-on' p4)-' :

DEATH OF THE HEART by Johu. Spector (fr. p.2) The mariner in which child-
ren treat their parents; the way the St.Mary's boys seemed not to care
that their actions would jeopardise the education of younger brothers,
cousins and friends; the exchange of insults; the rejoicing over the
death of a human being; the treatment of tourists, visitors; and teachers
(you can carry on from there).

The author James Pope Hennessy once said that he was in Washington
on a certain day during World War II. His apartment telephone rang
constantlyy with invitations to cocktail parties or other celebrations.
When the first call came he was not aware that President Franklin D.
Roosevelt had just died. Imagine his astonishment when he was invited
to rejoice -- an Englishman on U.S. territory -- over the death of the
President. At first he simply said 'no' and sat stunned. But as the
calls came in he returned withering satire to the feckless celebrants,
using such strong terms that they seemed to slink away over the wires.
Something of the kind has been happening in our micro-state this week
over the death of Androcles,. Androcles did not carry a gua or have a
police bodyguard like the Ministers; his only weapon was his pen. But
there are others in this-State whose pens are well-tempered, loaded and
at the ready. They will carry on the defence of the Rights of Man,

THE OILS AND FATS COiNJFREiNCE OPENING An Impression by Sonia T.Allfrey
Many an individual might think that such a conference was being held
,'i this State partly to help educate everyone in our community on that.
important subject -- Free Trade (CARIFTA); but I observed that aspects
of the whole show were being kept in darkness.
Does the lift ever work in the four-floor grand building known by
some as Johnson's House and by others as Government HQ? If not, dele-
gates with weak hearts, overweight, pressure or weak legs (or other dis-
abilities) should not attend any conferences there. The opening, sched-
uled to start at nine o'clock-sharp, didn't do so until 25 past nine.(I
had just returned from abroad, where people are bound to be punctual).
'One gentleman -Mr. Carrington of the Secretariat --made a brief speech
of appreciation for the hosting, after which the Minister of Finance Mr.
Armour was voted in as chairman, .
All this took about ten minutes and then the Press was asked to
le.ave. I was absolutely stunned, because the Presse is a means of educ-
ation for the people. The Herald was not even represented -afterwards
I heard they had not been invited. Mr. Julian Johnson remained in the
conference room and I thought he was covering the eve4t for Manicou
or the Educator perhapS, but later I heard he had a Government job.
Oils and Fats led to the CARIFTA meeting on Monday. It is some
sort of trade integration, and people are trying to make it into some-
thing more than that.
At present it is an integration not of national spirit but one of
the stomach and goods. After my experience at Oils and Fats I did not
attend on behalf of the Star on Monday, but simply wondered if the
general public would ever get woken up from its everlasting sleepiness
which allows a handful of men or deputy men to brainwash them,
It was my first visit to Government Headquarters, Dominica's
sJkyscraper. All I saw was a number of people sitting at or around desks.
It intrigued me to wonder what really goes on in there. S.T.A.

Endowed with a heart most stout,

CAN DOMINICA PLAN A SUCCESSFUL
AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT PRO-.
GRAMME WITHOUT THE USE OF CUR-
RENT AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS?
Before considering the answer to
this topic, let us examine briefly the
meaning of the term "Agricultural
Statistics" andwhat it stands for,
An objective guess could hardly fail
to relate the subject to .some sort of
.assemblement or accumulation of data
on Agriculture.
More specifically, however, Agric-
ultural Statistics is primarily con-
cerned with a study of the Agricultur-
al Structure within a "Universe of
Interest". A "Universe of Interest"
may either be a part or parts of a
region, or all portions of land and
water comprising a region. For example,
assuming that our interest is directed
'towards a knowledge of the Agricultur-
al Structure of an entire Country in
which "Complete Coverage" is desirable,
then all areas (or rather all portions
of land and water comprising that
Country) would fall within the "Univ-
.erse of Interest". 'On the other hand,
certain defined portion or specified
regions within a Country may be de-
clared the "Universe of 'Interest"upon
which attention is to be focused.
Broadly speaking, Agricultural Stat-
istics stands for procedures and sys-
'tems calculated to bring about, at
optimum costs, highly efficient results
in respect of the characteristics to be
studied. The successful application of
such procedures and systems culminates
in a reliable picture of the Agricul-
tural Structure of the "Universe of
Interest"'
The question "Can Dominica plan a
successful Agricultural' Development
Programme without the use of current
Agricultural Statistics?" can there-
fore be answered by another question:
"Does Dominica need to have a Reliable
Picture of its Agricultural Structure
now and tomorrow in Order to plan,and
successfully improve, its current
Agricultural Development Programme? '!
This is the questions The answer
seems obvious,
Let us therefore look forward with
patience to the results of Dominica's
1970 Agricultural "Sample Survey".
(More about "Sample Survey" to follow,)
-- BENNY PIERRE
TAY... C I
Superintendent .Philbert"is now on pre-
retirement lea.es',,and Mr. Oliver N.
Phillip is appointed as Ag.Commissioner
of the R.D.P.F. We 'wish Mr. Philbert, a
man of human integrity, well; and also
congratulate his excellent successor. *

Fiction: MA TITINE by Cynthia Watt
"Doan. a:, me oef I still cOrnfine to

Ma Titine to Genelia pettishly. Both
ladies were strolling around town at"
suns hour when all is quiet ,quieter

the trees which seemed to shoot up un-
der their very 'gaze, like something in
a science film,
"Not me... I glad I' doan have no
children," retorted Genelia. "Dey too
bodderation today."
Ma Titine just signed, thinking'sad-
ly of Eurilla, so far away, and her in-
fant son Gareo Jr. who had died "as
sweet as a'bar of chocolate.in his little
lace shroud'."
Baby side-stepped her huge bulk
through.a closed shop doorway and"joined
them. "Wha you doin"? Stealin Miss
Green marijuana plant?" asked GenAlia
sarcastically. They all thought it a
-great joke and rocked accordingly,
"No, is hot Marie Warner but is
