ROSEAU, THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1953.
THE attention of the General Public
is invited to the scheme for organisa-
tion of relief in the event of a hur-
ricane, which is re-published in this
issue of the Oficial Gazette.
ORGANISATION AND PROCEDURE FOR
REPORTING ON DISTRESS AND
ORGANISING RELIEF IN THE
EVENT OF A HURRICANE
1. For the purpose of hurricane
report and relief, the Colony shall
be divided into the following four
Hurricane Districts :-
(a) THE ROSEAU DISTRICT, as
bounded by the jurisdiction of
the Roseau Town Council..
(b) THE WESTERN DISTRICT, being
Magisterial District "E" ex-
(c) THE SOUTH EASTERN DISTRICT,
being Magisterial District "F".
(d) THE NORTHERN DISTRICT, be-
ing Magisterial District "G.".
2. There shall be a District Hurri-
cane Authority for each District as
I (a) For THE ROSEAU DISTRICT, the
Roseau Town Council.
(b) For THE WESTERN DISTRICT,
the Magistrate, District "E."
(c) For THE EASTERN DISTRICT,
the Magistrate, District "F".
kd) For THE NORTHERN DISTRICT,.
the District Officer.
3. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will submit urgently to the Adminis-
trator his first rough Report as soon
as possible after the disaster. The
Report should give such information
as may be considered fairly accurate
and also an opinion as to the extent
of the disaster in those parts of the
district from which there are only
rumours, with an estimate of the pos-
sible requirements in the way of relief.
This report should also give a rough
estimate of loss of life, serious per-
sonal injury, damage to houses and
destruction of food crops and food sup-
plies, and number of individuals ren-
4. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will send in further reports correct-
ing and amplifying the first report and
giving such details as are possible, as
soon as receipt of information justifies
his doing so; and he will continue to
send in daily or periodical reports, as,
may be necessary, acting on his own
5. The Officials of each District will
afford the District Hurricane Authority
all the information in their power,
with the least possible delay, in order
that the report may be full and com-
6. In addition to the District Hur-
ricane Authorities, Local Hurricane
Authorities have been appointed as

7. These Local Hurricane Authori-
ties will take emergency measures for
affording relief and will report as' soon
as possible to the District Hurricane
8. In the event of communication
with the District Hurricane Authority
being difficult or impracticable, the
Local Hurricane Authority will report
direct to the Administrator.
9. Each District Authority will en-
deavour to keep in close touch with
the Local Hurricane Authorities in
the various areas in his District and,
in spite of there being no such vote,
will be justified in expending the
money urgently needed, whether for
special messenger or for food, without
awaiting the Administrator's authori-
ty, up to a limit of 10 for each Dis-
trict. Just as the Administrator will
authorise urgent expenditure in anti-
cipation of being able to justify it to
the Council and Secretary of State, so
the District Authorities may rely on
the refund of the sums they expend
without authority, provided that they
can show tht the expenditure was
reasonable and the need for it urgent.
10. The Public who have suffered
loss or damage should apply to the
Local Hurricane Authorities in each
area and not come or send to the
Officials at Roseau.
11. For the further and better or-
ganizing of these measures the fol-
lowing CENTRAL HURRICANE RELIEF
COMMITTEE has been appointed:-
His Honour the ADMINISTRATOR
The HON. FINANCIAL SECRETARY
The Hon. J.O. AIRD
The DIRECTOR OF WORKS
The SOCIAL WELFARE OFFICER
The Very Revd. the Dean of Roseau
The Rector, St. Georges Church
The Methodist Superintendent
1 At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of
July, all shutters and fastenings should
be thoroughly overhauled and reviewed
where necessary. In the case of de-
tached shutters identification marks
should be clearly painted on each, cor-
responding with the number and loca-
tion of each window.
2. When barring up a house on
indications of bad weather or the ap-
proach of a hurricane-begin with the
side facing the direction of the pre-
vailing wind, which varies as a rule
from the North-West to North-East.
Should the centre happen to pass over
the island during the period of calm
the north side should be opened up
and the southern- or westerly sides
closed. Very often, however, the
hurricane shifts directly from North-
East to South East with little or no
interval of relative calm, and under
such circumstances it is wise to have
every window securely fastened.
3. For the information of the public
generally it may be stated that a
special hurricane code is. in use and
on the indication of a falling barometer
and prevailing hurricane symptoms,
mutual telegrams are interchanged.
The* following signal will be made
from Fort Young, Roseau, as a warn-

ing in event of probable approach of a
hurricane or severe gales
One gun or rocket will be fired at
any time of the day or night, and a
red flag having a black centre will be
hoisted on the signal staff by day, and
a red lantern by night.
Two guns or rockets will be fired in
succession, and two red flags with
black centres will be hoisted by day
and two red lanterns by night.
When the signal is given, steps
should at once be taken to secure pre-
mises on shore and vessels in port
against impending danger.
On improvement of weather condi-
tions after either the Cautionary or
Danger Signals have been made, and
it is considered that the hurricane has
passed Dominica, a blue flag will be
With regard to Portsmouth, the
same signals will apply, the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted
at the Police Station, Portsmouth.
THE attention of Heads of Depart-
ments is called to the notice published
in this Gazette regarding Hurricane
Warnings, as they will be held respon-
sible for seeing that the buildings of
their Departments are made as secure
as possible after firing of signals.

ADDRESS OF WELCOME TO HIS
EXCELLENCY BY THE HONOUR-
ABLE SENIOR MEMBER OF THE
IT is with.great pleasure and pride
that on behalf of this Council and on
behalf of the people of Dominica I ex-
tend a most sincere welcome to Your
Excellency and Mrs. Beetham on the
occasion of your first visit to this
I hope that Your Excellency's first
impressions have been pleasant ones
and hope that Your Excellency's offi.
cial duties permit you to increase your
acquaintance with our island and, we
hope. to form an enduring attach-
ment to the country.
This undeveloped island will present
Your Excellency with many economic
and social problems but Your Excel-
lency can derive comfort from the
fact that this Council can boast of a
record of stable and responsible Gw-
ernment which should give some as-
surance to Your Excellency that with
mutual trust and confidence the co-
operation of this Council with Your
Exce lency shall always be forthcom-
Among these islands I think we
may say with confidence that this
island is outstanding in the scope it
offers for agricultural expansion and
general economic development. This
we feel entitles this island to a sub-
stantial quota of any financial assis-
tance extended by Her Majesty's
Government for the welfare and de-
velopment of these Islands. And
particularly, we-feel a strong claim to
a greater proportion of Your Excel-
lency's time and attention than Gov-
ernors of the past have accorded us.
Our need for agricultural develop.
ment is obvious enough but there is
one formidable problem confronting
us which we think calls for mention
here that is our lack of shipping.
This deficiency has hampered the de-
velopment of our citrus industry, re-
tarded the expansion of our banana
cultivations and wrecked our. Bermu-
da fruit trade. This is a predicament
in which we naturally turn to Her
Majesty's Government for assistance.
It is not amiss to mention here that
unlike the Sugar islands we receive
no direct subsidy from Her Majesty's
Government, and that the G. A. T. T.
agreement narrowly restricts assis-
tance from the United Kingdom by
way of preferential tariffs.
We therefore most fervently hope
that we will have Your Excellency's
active co-operation in seeking Per
Majesty's Government's assistance in
the solution of this very difficult pro-
In conclusion I must wish Your Ex-
cellency and Mrs. Beetham a very
happy stay with us in this island and
we hope that you shall be so enchanted
by its natural beauty that we shall
soon be welcoming you again and that
we shall have frequent opportunities
of discussing personally with Your
Excellency the affairs and problems
of this country.
256 OFFICIAL GAZETTE,
REPLY BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE
Your Honour, Honourable Members of
Councils, Ladies and Gentlemen.
I thank you sincerely for your
kind welcome to my wife and myself.
We look forward with the greatest
pleasure to this present visit to your
beautiful Island and to all the visits
which we shall pay in the future. I
wish this visit could be for a longer
time so that I could see more of nhe
Island and more of its people than will
in fact be possible. hose pleasures
must, however, wait until another time,
for I have not yet been able to go to
St. Vincent where I plan to spend ten
days shortly after leaving here.
Since I have been in the Windward
Islands I have not been idle in dealing
with your affairs, and I do not want
anyone to imagine that because I am
not actually in Dominica, its successes
go unnoticed or that its problems are
shelved. Nothing could be further
from the truth. I come here to meet
as many people as possible and to learn
as much as I can about the Island so
that when I leave I am the better
equipped to further your development
You have a wonderful Island, an
Island the resources of which"are
so relatively undeveloped. "-You will
have learnt with gratitude that
Her Majesty's Government propose
to continue to give financial aid
under a new Colonial Development
and Welfare Act which will enable
further grants to be made after the
present Act expires in 1956. Any
grants and loans which we may re-
ceive under this new Act are for eco-
nomic development, and it is of vital
importance to ensure that they are
spent to the best possible advantage
and that not one penny is unwisely
spent, I know that perhaps your great-
est need is road communications, but
is only half a truth to say "Give us
the communications andl agricultural
development will follow". It is clear
that we must adopt a far more ima-
ginative and progressive attitude to-
wards our agricultural methods and
towards the solving of our agricul.
tural problems, so that the maximum
possible use is made of the land: we
must not look only to the immediate
future, but to the future of our child-
ren and our children's children. We
must progress and we must realise
THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1953.
that we are living in the year 1953
and use up to date methods some of
which may well mean certain changes
in our daily routine and changes in
the ways in which we have been ac-
customed to think.
I hope therefore to see the most
careful longterm planning for the
eventual increase in prosperity of this
Island and I hope to see an increase
in all cops and this includes Bananas;
the production of which I am delighted
to hear has increased by no less than
25% over the past twelve months. In
bananas you have a most important
and valuable crop: do not risk its fu:
ture by neglecting to take the obvious
precautions against diseases such as
leaf spot which can well become a
grave menace to the industry- in fact
a far graver menace than many of
you may realise. I hope to see an in-
crease of cattle and sheep and poultry,
kept under proper and modern condi-
tions of animal husbandry. I com-
mend to you the great value to be ob-
tained from properly constituted and
organised producers' associations to
stimulate production and to facilitate
While we are the fortunate recipi-
ents of generous aidform the United
Kingdom tax payer and while this
help is willingly given, it is given to
help us to become economically and
financially self-supporting. I know
that there is not one person in this
room who would wish to remain de-
pendent upon direct financial help
from outside for one moment longer
than is necessary, and we ourselves
have therefore our part to play. It
is up to us. first, to ensure that none
of this money is wasted, either
through reckless planning or through
lack of enthusiasm and individual
hard work, and secondly, to help our-
selves by every .means in our power
through self help and- through fair
and equitable increased taxation.
I am happy to tell you that the newly
appointed Comptroller of the Colonial
Development and Welfare Organisa-
tion for the West Indies, will visit us
this week. I am most grateful to him
for coming at my request, at this time
when he is hard pressed with many
other urgent problems, so that he may
learn at first hand our hopes and as-
pirations for this Island with its truly
enormous agricultural possibilities.
Let me end by asking from all
