Well, the Geest boat was ready to ship 1175 tons of bananas from
Dominica on Sunday but in the end only packed-in 1126 tong. The
amount of confusion was considerable throughout the island, partly
because of the week-end work, partly the short notice and changes in
radio notices; but largely due to an eagerness on the part of the
growers which produced an overcut, a lot of rejections (as 3/4 full
was specified instead of the riper 7/8ths grade which many tried to
slip; in).
Mr. Stevens' complaint in the House of Assembly seemed to have
been borne out, especially in the North Eastern District. Atkinson and
Batac&were sent down to Castle Bruce boxing plant (instead of Weirs/
Marigot, and/or Londonderry); and Castle Bruce was short of boxes.
Despite the long period with nothing to do but maintain plant and equip-
ment and supply boxes to each planter, confusion reigned and tempers
were sometimes short (not helped by the the unfortunate hold-up below
Point Cassa, due to an accident in which several were injured on Sunday
night.) It is still a general complaint that the D.B.G.A. board and
staff still seem to assume that they are the Association and the indiv-
idual 6-8,000 farmers are not ; 'Overcut' is an easy expression for
the man in the office but I myself saw 63 fine stems, beautifully
packed, average bunch-weight 35 lbs., first on the Association truck,
returned unloaded (first on.last off) to the grower -a loss of over
Reading last week's STAR report on the banana situation, I noticed
an omission --no mention was made of the incorrect broadcast on Radio-
Dominica about the formation of the Commonwealth Banana Exporters' As-
sociation (BEA) emanating (it appears) from Reuters, Jamaica and a Press
release from the Jamaica Banana Board. This 'CBEA'was only considered
by the WINBAN delegation to Kingston on August 8. The reason, to my
mind, fob publishing a release which was not yet agreed to-by the As-
.sociated States-delegation lies in the 4th paragraph which starts:
"Amongst the tasks of the CBEA would be to speak with one vice in the
U.K. and Europe,.." This paragraph was preceded by a reference to
"Britain's imminent aoc session to the EEC" and therein lies the core.
Britain, having shaken off her colonies and weakened her Common-
wealth ties, has opted to join the non-communist part of Europe in the
enlarged European Economic Community. Fair enough, that is her business;
her Conservatives envy the 'healthy' reactionary capitalism of many of
the European countries; her Labour Party (or a majority section of it)
hopes to introduce some socialist modification of the present undemocra-
tic set-up of the E.E.C.
In the meantime, although the Associated States (ex-colonies), not
yet fully independent, will lose a few concessions, largely in trade,
from Britain, they will at the .same time gain a great advantage over
independent Commonwe 4.lth countries such as Jamaica, Should the Assoc-
iated states (or even Domniina .on her own) opt to join the E.E.C. (or
more correctly the European Common Market), on the Part IV basis of
Associated Territories they immediately gain freedom of movement within
th-e European countries --and the U.K. Immigration Act would not then
apply to West Indians from the Associated States:; although Jamaicans,
Barbadians, Guyanese and Trinidadians would still be ruled by the Act.
Most important of all, the WINBAN countries would have privileged
access for their exports to all the E.C.M. countries, over and above
Jamaica. Far be it from us to damage any potential Westindian unity,but
by putting the Associated States in a strong position (with access also
to EEC Development Funds.) they would, as a bloc, be in a much stronger
position to stand up and ensure for themselves a fair deal in CARIFTA
and future forms of Westindian integration.

STARTII'G ALL OVER AGAIN : by John Spector (from page two)
Turning to more detailed problems at home in Dominica, the Cana-
dian Consultants who are now working on phase III of their plan (part
of their costs will now be borne by.the Association) expect a saving
in 1972 by means of which principal and iinterest amounting to $100,000
may be paid back in January 1975; in future years:- 1974, $200,000;
1975, $300,000; 1976, $400,000 ... and thereafter $200,000 each year
for the balance of the ten years. Incidentally I believe the total
overdraft facilities are $2.4.million, not $2.2 million as stated last
week. These savings, how ever, depend almost entirely on the ability
of the small grower (i.e. theman with under 100 acres of banana cul-
tivation) to increase his production in the same acreage to around
ten tons per acre. In effect this means a doubling of productivity.
It-can be done, but it will need encouragement demonstration, effic-
ient use 9f new methods and new plant-disease resistant strains for
replanting. Above all, it will need more money for nemagon,insecticides,
weedicides, fertilizer, blue diothenaj and comprehension of their
proper use.., and, in many medium-sized plantations, working capital
to pay for extra labour.
A new replanting scheme is being planned by WINBAN, Governments
in the islands will be responsible in the first instance for handling
the scheme, and the respective Ministers of Agriculture will choose a
committee who will select an 'unspecified number of farmers who have
shown drive and ability, to set aside a few acres of their land for
the pilot scheme. Sites will be chosen at different altitudes and with
repreSantative soil types to a total amount of 1000 acres in each
island. The planting material will be the new, improved varieties of.
Valerie and Giant Cavendish. As an incentive, fertilizer, diothene,
nemagon etc4 .will be supplied, if possible free or on.a poundage re-
payment basis. It is hoped that the scheme will be financed by the
Regional Development Bank who have been approached by individual Ban-
ana Boards, backed by WINBAN and the Governments concerned. The applic-
ation has been made at a rate of $1,000 per acre and is designated as
'long term loan for access roads to existing feeder roads, purchase of
agricultural machinery, and working capital to employ labour'. (The
WIIBAN delegation, as readers probably know, stopped off in Barbados
en route to London to see Sir Arthur Lewis last Friday).
The old contract with-Geests expires next year and a new contract
comes into effect.Match 30, 1973. The Bahana Boards and WINBAN hope by
then to be in possession of all the facts and costs relating to bananas
from the field to the consumer. They Will thus be in a better position
to bargain across the negotiating table' on equel terms and I hear
they hope they will even be able to tell Mr. van Geest how much he is
saving by having the bananas demanded and boxed here and sent across'
the Atlantic without paying for shipping the stems! That saving, say
the growers, must amount to considerably more than 250 per lb; they
expect the price to the grower to be" roportionately higher. The growers
should be pleased to know at last how the Green Boat Price becomes the
price..to the grower --Boxing $91.20 per ton, Freight $98.40 per ton -
say 200. per ton come off the GBP (of 70 or 60 before the grower gets
his few cents per Ib. So, at the Greenboat Price of 75 ($360 per ton)
there is less than $160 per ton left for the grower, from which must
come: government tax, DBGA cess, transport and Geests loading and re-
ception expenses. One ton equals 2240 lbs., so if all those things;
come to $60 per ton, there is $100 per ton left for the grower, which
is 10,000-cents div ided by 2240 or 4.47 cents per lb. (Ive done my
homework if anyone can fault me on it, let them do so')
To the growers I would add, this is your Dominica Banana Growers:'
Association. Your representatives should get out all the figures for you
to woan out, and make sure you are getting. a square deal from Govern-
ment, your Association- and- the buying Company and do it before the
next' contract is signed.

About WSI St ies
THE Inter-Presidential Conference. of the
Guilds.A the various cfamp, e: of~ the U versity
of the West Indtes atid the Univereity ot Guyana
has made a call for a teachingprogramme that is
mainly of Caribbean content.
:It isnot msurprising ihat tbhse people rvere-
asetative- of the various student bodies at the
campuses should express. desire for this ap
proach, since a number. of the educational insti-
tutions.and systems in the.area are being examine,
ed to determine their efficacy in a Caribbean
Our education experts have become concern-
ed about where we ~ re going and the type. o
people we: are aiming to produce through out
various systems. in the same way the university
undergraduates want the university to assist
educating our people in the area to be "Caribbean
But in all this; it is nepntiol thai we retain
a sense of proportion. While a case can be made
out for heavier concentration on things Carib
bean in our university studies, it must be borne
in. mind .tha; education has its international as
well as ts village implications.
It is intended for us to have an understand-
ang, not oly of ourselves, in a limited parochial
context, but in the wider context of universal
Thi, rhs, eap, is best borne- out in tipe natural
sciences where scientific laws and stuty relate
and pertain to the whole world, and we might
even add, the universe, as we see It. .
But, it does follow that it its important that
we have an understa.ndng of ourselves in rela-
itoi to the rest of the world, so that it is not out
af place to talk about "a Caribbean man", as
divorced from "a European man" each being
the product of his own environment.
There is still the virtue in education which
broadens the outlook and widens the under-
standing. And,. while we are all anxious that
our university should fulfil a vital role in our
community awareness, we must also bear in mind
.that awareness like growth, Is seldom a sudden
'development. So far, for example, we are sadly
lacking in meaningful and erudite studies in
Caribbeah literature. This is a task our graduates
can well pursue. We only. have to compare what
ig available on authors like Shakespeare and what
the student of Caribbean literature now has at
his disposal.
We sense a degree of hnpatienr e in the views
expressed by the undergraduates, but we must
further point out that just as they themselves are
determined to be the products of the new Carib-
bean, those before them have also been the pro-
ducts of their time.
S People always tend to be the products of
their time, and many have had to take oppor-
tunities where they found them.
In many v. ays because our forefathers
dared, we have found it easier to accomplish.
There is one development we would hope
never befalls our university. It is that the author-
ities do not lose tbelr sense of proportion as we
advance, from staga to stage in our quest for
things Caribbean.


We have witnessed, fbr elsample, in many
university especially, in the United -States, the
haste with which attempts have been made to
introduce "black studies" to; fill what was con-
sidered by. many, to be a vacuum in the educa-
tional system.
It night well- bethat these -are Important
in helping to mould the American man, especially
if he is black, but it is also a fact that some of the
programmes pursued in black studies at a nun.-
bar of the American univerSties seem moore
geased to give emotional satisfaction to students
than being 'aimed at their adviceriment as peo-
pie capable of better value judgments.

OLEWiC GAMES: Avery Brundage of U.S.A,
(84) resigned a week ago as Chairman of t
the Olympics Cttee. Hio place was taakm
by Lord KilAllan. Last Nov. a carefully
prepared Phodesian plan to have lan e
Smith's boys partake' in the Munich Oly a
pics (next week), was successful in a e
sense; they got the vote, promised to c
play "God Save the Queen" and to show t
the old Rhodesian Union Jack flagThreet
weeks ago, the Rhodesian team (inc. 3 i
Blacks) was the 1st team to. take up
quarters at 'Olymip village'. The news ~.
spread and notices of withdrawal by Af-v
rican and other teams were given. A fui
other meeting of the .Committee reversed a
the first decision 35-31 (3 absentions.)h
and Rhodesia was banned from the games.
CRICKET: in the 1st of 3 one-day mat-
ches, England defeated Australia by
6 wickets. Australia (batting first)got
223/8. England replied With 226/4.
FOOTBALL: Two new teams, Paragon and C
Halcyon, made their debut last weekend
Paragon won 2-1. Halcyon scored the st
goal early in the 2iindhalf through
Jerry Lewis, but go4ls from Julius Tim-
'othy & James Joseph clinched victory s
for Paragon, which however lost with
Harlem Rovers (seasoned campaigners)2-C
H.R.'s goals came from"Benbit, one ii
each half. Last Su4day, Saints for-
feited points to Celtic United by not
.turning out pleading injuries I
.SECOND DIVISION: Last Friday, what
started to be a hard game between Cel- C
tic U. and Potters United-was called
off 15 minutes before time. Celtics
scored first throughJ A.Shillingford,
Debutantes Potters equalised just be-
fore'the interval. On resumption 2nd
half, Celtics fund the nets again
through Gerry Active. The match contin-
ued with Celtics dominating the mid-
field, but Potters pulled a quick raid
on the Celtics goal easily averted,
Then Potters fans called for a penalty;
the referee blew his whistle to check,
but by then the field was swarming with
spectators. The match was called off,
leaving much confusion among players &
spectators alike. Replay is in offing,
Saints and Harlem played to a 2-2
draw on Tuesday.
OLYMPICS AGAIN the Africhn contestant
don't want the Rhodesians even'to be
observers at the Olympic Games. Many.
people feel that this is carrying polit
ics too far into sports.
