A fine massive building which would
have made a good town hall with adequate
office accommodation for Police in one sec-
tor, relief for cramped Firemen in another,
and essential space for a juvenile court-
room and even an arts display room was
opened on Monday.
The British gave the money (over $3
million1)but we are enidtled to remark that
the building, bigger than many London
police stations, could be put to better uses
And perhaps it will be, comcmr -ine day.

IS THIS CONCERN? by O.A.Sanderson
During the Labour Party Convention at Wesley a. few weeks ago, the
Sporty pretended to-have some concern for the hard-working people of the
State, since it was .said that Government should seek means and ways to.
relieve hard-working people from their pains and heat of the sun at Roseau
Market.
If this is not sheer hypocrisy, then there must be a complete review
of Government's attitude .toward the worker.
During the past month, Radio .Dominica has been making a. big splash
about the increase in the Green boat price of bananas in an attempt to
say the grower is having a good time, for this reason it is necessary
to take a,. close look at the facts. ..
In the early years of the industry, bananas were shipped to the; U.K.
on the bunch involving wastage, de handing etc., yet the grower received-
up to 7-.aenta per lb., in those days. We were told that boxing is the
answer to its survival and that would be the way to better prices.
During the early months of 1973 Banana price went to its lowest,
making.production virtually unworkable; however, intensive negotiation
caused the situation to improve.
The grower, was then ,told that due to much debt by the Association,
they would be paid at a. fixed rate until the 24th April, when the debt
was expected to be settled; this now -proves very untrue as facts; prove
over $3 million is still owed.
Nowi that the banana price is at an all-tirme high, very little
improvement has been made in regards to the price paid to the grower.
At present the Qreen boat price is said to be 121 per ton equivalent
to $580.80EC as compared to-the basic of 6.250,= to 4150o00 per ton paid-'
to the grower; from this he must buy fertilizer at $12,00 a bag and feed
his family, pay for the cost of production, for handling etc. Other
fraction bonuses he must qualify for, or get none.
Should not Government care enough, to take immediate steps to see
that justice is done to the. poor hard-working people of the State, since
those responsible are Government's. own appointed bureaucrats, caring for
no one but themselves it would appear.
Another .great injustice isi the fact that most growers received
nothing from the $3 million U.K. relief grant (on the grounds that they
did not qualify) : what a shame;
A further grant was also given, this time for feeder roads. Govern-
ment claims'to spread those roads over a 5-year period, whilst caterpillars
rust, operators idle, because of no employment and the hard-working
people continue to toil in vain with no help until they are forced to :-
give up. IS THIS CONCERN?
Use judgement and do-justice, for the- evils that men do live-no
longer after them, but along with them.


POLICE HEADQUARTERS
.The large new Police. Hoad-
quarters building in Bath Road
was officially opened-at 5 p.m.
on Monday.
Mr. J. Rednall, Heae of the
British Development Division,
the Ebn.' Premier, the Minister
of Home Affairs and Hon.R.O.P.

spoke at the function, and after
the blessings bestowed by Church-
men, guests were entertained with
refreshments.
