ORGANISATION
THE UNESCO BOOK COUPON SCHEME
A, UNESCO Book Coupon Scheme
which has been in operation over a limited
field during,the. lastyear or two has now
been extended in scope.
The Object of the Scheme
The use of these coupons enables indi.
vidualsand institutions in "soft currency"
countries to overcome currency exchange
difficulties in buying books and periodi-
cals from "hard currency" countries. In
this present time of .dollar shortage.
therefore, it may be particularly helpful
to libraries. and other. institutions, The
coupons may be used to buy books
from the following countries: Belgium,
Burma,. Czechoslovakia. Egypt, France,
Hungry. India, Isr4ael, Italy, Nether-
. ... lands, Switzerj!qd, .,Uited States of
America.









"OFFICIAL GAZETTE,' M'ONDAY,':-JNUARY 15, 1951. 15


The coupons may be used to buy books
- of any sort except fiction, -and they can
also be used for subscriptions to periodi-
cals and for payment for photo copies.
How it Works6
Any institution or individual, who is
finding difficulty in obtaining the books
'he needs from any of the above countries
through normal commercial channels can
have recourse to' the scheme. -All he
needs to do is to purchase. with sterling,
from the United Kingdom distribution
centre, coupons to the value required, and
send them either direct or through his
usual bookseller to an agency in the coun-
try concerned. together, with an order for
the books. The agency will post the
books direct to the purchaser or to.hii book-
seller. If the exact value of the book re-
quired is not known, enquihy array be made
beforehand to the agency in the country
concerned. The coupons have a dollar
'face-value and are available in the follow-
ing denominations: 25 cents, $1 09, $3.00,
$10.00 $30.00, and $100.00. The smallest
denomination was specially designed to
enable purchasers to pay for single issues
of periodicals, reprints, etc., payment for
which is difficult under present currency
regulations in most countries. In addi-
tion to the face-value of the coupon, the
purchaser pays a small surcharge to cover
the expenses of the scheme. The period
of validity of a coupon is 10 months.

ADDRESS
TO
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF DOMINICA.
BY
HIJ HONOUR E P. A RROWSM ITH, C.iM.0,
A D I NISTITATOR
14th Decemnber, 1950.

Honourable Members of Legisjltive Cou'cil,
At this Budget session to consider the Estimates for 1951, I
do not intend to give a detailed statement on the various heads of
the Estimates, but to comment briefly on the main events that
have taken place during the year which is now drawing to a close,
and to review the prospects for the future.
On the 7th of July, 1950, a meeting was held to celebrate the
25th anniversary of the present Constitution. This is the last
Budget session that will be-held under this constitution, for -next
year a new constitution will be introduced. It was intended that
the elections should be held early in 1951, but preparation of the
new Constitutional Instruments in England will take longer than
was anticipated, and it i's now necessary to postpone the elections
to later in the year. No final date has yet been fixed.
As we all know, the number of elected members will be in-
creased to eight under the new Constitution, and there will be an
elected majority in Council. The elections will be held on. the basis
of universal adult suffrage without a literacy test. I trust that
the people of Dominica will make the best use of this new power.
During 1950 the value of domestic produce shipped has in-
creased considerably over 1949. The latest figures I have available
are up to the end of October. In the period January 1st to October
31st the value of domestic produce shipped amounted to $1,627,737
compared to $831,574 for the same period in 1949. The value of
1950 exports was thus almost double that of 1949. Since October
there have been large exports of lime juice, citrus fruits and ban-
anas, and I anticipate that by the end of the year the value of
domestic exports will approach $2,000,000.
Bananas showed an increase from 88,954 bunches valued at
$104,936 in 1949 to 259,574 bunches valued at $420,801 in .1950.
This increase, although substantial, it is not as great as we had
hoped. We are not yet producing enough to provide regular fort-
nightly shipments throughout the year. There are several reasons
for this. In the first place, it is not enough to stick a banana
sucker in the ground and to hope that without further care and
attention it will produce a heavy bunch. I am sure that by now
this is fully realized. Like any other crop bananas need proper
care if good results are to be obtained.
Leaf-spot control is also most necessary. We have the ex-
ample of Jamaica before us, and early and energetic measures
must be taken to control this disease. A properly run campaign
will cost much money. It might even be necessary to increase the
cess for leaf-spot control. But I am convinced that this would be
money well spent. I do not think it is yet fully realized that With-
out proper control leaf-spot will kill the banana industry within a
very few years.
More roads are needed, not only oiled motor roads, but rough
motor roads connecting with banana growing areas. Work will
go ahead more quickly in 1951, when work on four oiled motor-
roads will be proceeding simultaneously. Difficulty is still being
experienced in obtaining early deliveries of essential equipment.
Deliveries often take six months or more, but on the last direct








"r18 OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY JANUARY 15, 1951.

ship from England some much needed equipment was obtained,
and this will enable the work to go ahead more quickly.
Planters and peasants in some cases need further capital to
expand their cultivations. I hope that by early in the New Year
a scheme will be worked out under which loans may be made.
Strict supervision will be necessary to see that loans are well spent
and that repayments are made promptly.
Owing to the efforts of a leading planter, there has been a
welcome revival in the shipment of fresh citrus fruit. The Gov-
ernment fruit packing plant was not designed to handle large
quantities, and there was considerable difficulty with the first
shipment. The position will improve as soon as the Colonial De-
velopment Corporation's packing plant comes into operation.
I hope that during 1951 producers will form a Citrus Growers
Association. This will not only prevent needless competition be-
tween shippers, but should also ensure that the best possible prices
are obtained The Association would also be able to use.its influ-
ence to see that fruit is properly handled before it reaches the
packing shed. Many people have still to learn that if rejections
and wastage are to be avoided, an orange or grapefruit should be
handled as gently as an egg.
To turn now to imports, the value of imports from January to
the end of September amounted to $2,406,672 compared to $1,344,-
333 for the same period in 1949. There were comparatively heavy
imports of machinery and building materials. Prices continue to
show an upward trend, although up to the time of the war in
Korea their tendency was to fall.
The high cost of living is of concern to everyone here, and
there is no easy answer to the problem. We can do nothing to
control the first cost of goods from abroad, but local prices of im-
ported goods are subject to control with a fixed percentage of
profit allowed to the retailer. The prices of local produce are not
controlled and the question is often asked why Government does
not do something about it. The answer is that so long as people
are prepared to pay high prices for produce that is in short supply
price control has little effect. If eggs for instance were controlled
at four pence each how many people would refuse to pay sixpence
at their back doors if they needed eggs badly ? The only satisfac-
tory answer is to increase supplies.
This brings me to the problem of Land Use in Dominica op
which Mr. Thelwell has written an interesting report which has
been circulated to Honourable Members. I do not intend to com-
ment at any length on this report which has yet to be considered
by Government, but what we clearly need are well-run estates
with tenants and landlords secured by agreements. In this way
we will not only increase the acreage of export crops, but also in-
crease the supply of local provisions.
Government should also use the estates which it owns to the
best advantage. A start in this direction has been made by the
establishment of a prison farm on the Goodwill Estate to provide
f6od for public institutions.
The Medical Report for 1949 shows that there has been a re-
markable fall in the death rates. Between 1946 and 1949 the
number of deaths registered were as follows:--
1946 1,000,
1947 944
1948 749
1949 698
As a result of the extensive use of D.D.T. and other anti.
malarial measures, deaths attributed to malaria fell from. 94 in
1946 to 26 in 1949. The infant mortality rate, that is, deaths of
children under one year old pmr 1,000 live births has decreased from








OFFICIAL L GAZETTE, MONDAY;'JANUARY 15, 1951. 9

141 to 87' ever the same period. I hope this very satisfactory pro-
gress will be maintained, but the recent whooping cough epidemic
may inerease the infant mortality rate for 1950.
Communications with other islands have always been a pro-
blem, but since the 23rd of May, 1950, a weekly air service by a
Grumman Goose aircraft of British Guiana Airways has been
operating from Pottsmouth. It was hoped that this service would
be operated by Sealabd amphibians and that a twice weekly :ser-
vice would be provided. Unfortunately, the Sealand aircraft
priovd unsuitable foi operations in this area,.and no other aircraft
of a similar type are available. The life of the Grumman Goose
is not indefinite, and the older an aircraft becomes the mf re diffi-
cult it is to get spare parts.
Attention has, therefore, been given once more to the possi-
bility of building an air strip at Melville Hall. Honourable Mem-
bers are aware of the history of this project. Diverse views have
been expressed about whether Melville Hall is a suitable site for an
airfield or not. One thing, however, is agreed, and that is that
-*Melville Hall is the only feasible location for an airfield in the
- island. But when it was thought that the Sealand service would
be provided no further action was taken at Melville'Hall.
The latest development is that a senior engineer from a well
known Ehglish firm, and a senior pilot of British West Indian Air-
Sways have recently examined'the airfield site. They will now be
reporting to their principals, and if their reports are favourable,
as I: hope. they may be, a detailed survey of the area, particularly
of the approach over which the aircraft would have to fly before
landing will be made.. If it is decided to build an airfield, an un-
dertaking would be required from the operating Company that
they.would fly aircraft into it, and, if necessary, would provide
aircraft of a suitable type to do so. The ideal is, of course, to have
an airfield from which aircraft, such as Vikings, regularly employ-
-ed on existing routes can operate. But the one thing it is esser-
tial to avoid is to build an airfield-and then to have the operating
Company say they cannot provide a service, because the field is not
suitable for the aircraft they use.
In the meantime, the Grumman Goose service will continue to
operate. The Administrator of St. Vincent has arranged for the
Goose to be stationed at St. Vincent. It would be possible to ar-
ranged a service twice a week between Dominica and Barbados if
there is sufficient demand for air*passages.
To turn now to the Estimates for 1951, and the financial posi-
tion of the Colony, the estimated expenditure to be placed before
you amounts to $1,416,915. In addition to this sum, there are fur-
ther proposals amounting to some $15,000 which were received too
late for inclusion in the printed Estimates, and with these added,
the total possible expenditure amounts to $1,431,915, exclusive of
expenditure on Colonial Development and Welfare schemes. Re-
venue is estimated at $1,271,449, exclusive of receipts from Colonial
Development and Welfare funds, leaving a deficit of $160,466.
These estimates of expenditure may seem high, but we are not
yet in a position of equality with other Colonies in the services we
provide,: especially in the educational field. The most significant '
increases for 1951 come under the Head of Education. 'We are
particularly anxious to improve the standard of education at the
Grammar School. Under this Head also, the new salaries "of ele-
mentary school teachers which were applied in 1950 are shownfor
the first time. As a result of the teacher training programme, 19.'
teachers have been promoted to the Assistant Teacher grade.
The present high cost of materials and the increase in labour
rates are inevitably reflected in most heads of expenditure.
.,On the revenue side, I think that in 1951 the results of the.
present commercial-activity will be more evident, and that revenue
will rise. Nevertheless, there is a largegap between revenue and
expenditure which must be closed. We must seek to' raise more
revenue logilly and.ptopbsals to achieve this.are at present being '
considered. -

On the whole, however, there is reason .for optimism. Th're
is more activity in the Jsland, than for many years, and if we are
faced with no major disaster like a war. I think we will continue
to make progress. We need, however, to press ahead more quickly
With our Eeonomic project's, and that reqiiries hard work from
everyone.
In conclusion', I would like to thank Honourable Members fCr
their services during the past year The present time is an im-
portant and critical one for this Colony, and as development pro-
ceeds the affairs of the Colony will require even more of your time
and attention. That this will be willingly given I have no doubt,
and it is my earnest hope that this last Council under the present
constitution will leave behind a record of service which its succes-
sors will be proud to emulate.
REPLY BY UNOFFICIAL MEMBERS TO
PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS AT MEETING
OF LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL-16 12 50.

May it Please Your Honour,
We have listened with interest to Your Honour's Address and
note with pleasure that the economic condition of the Island has
definitely improved during the year in question and share Your
Honour's hopes that the coming year will show further improve
ment. .
We notice with especial satisfaction Your Honour's stress on
the necessity for further road development, the dangers of leaf
spot and the possibility of securing loans for the; benefit of agri-
cultural producers.
We, however, view with a certain atnount of apprehension the
broadening of the gap between Revenue and Expenditure and hope
that after essential requirements have been imet, we will be in a
position to balance our budget or even create a surplus.
This possibly being the last budget meeting of this Council,
we wish to express to Your Honour our sincere appreciation of the
statesman-like manner in which Your Honour has conducted the
proceedings, leading to a feeling of trust in the Government.
