PLANT FIBRE CROPS FOR ST. VIN-
CENT'S GROWING HANDICRAFT
INDUSTRY.

The making of baskets, bags, mats,
hats etc., of fibre is becoming an import-
ant industry in St. Vincent. This handi-
craft industry if encouraged and devel-
oped will greatly assist in solving many
of our economic problems by providing
considerable useful employment and a
most welcome addition to our export
trade.
For this industry to develop and ex-
pand quickly it is vital that supplies of
the raw materials should be available in
greatly increased quantities.
The main fibres used in local handi-
crafts come from the leaves of the
"Wild" or "Screw" Pine (Pandanus
sp.) and Sisal (Agave sp.). These plants
are easy to establish and require little
care once planted.
The Pine is the one most widely used.
It is a plant that provides an excellent
windbreak for other crops, it stands up
well to salt sea spray and will be found
to be a most helpful plant for Estates
and farmers in the Windward area speci-
ally. Pine is also a useful anti-eroison
crop and should be planted extensively
throughout the Colony on steep banks
and the side of gutters, ravines and
streams.
The use of sisal fibre for handicrafts
is increasing and if planted closely

1tH4I FOLLOWING MEMORANDUM BY THE DIRECTOR OF COLONIAL
SCHOLARS ON THE ARRANGEMENTS FOR SENDING COLONIAL STUDENTS
TO THE UNITED KINGDOM FOR HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE 1984/55
SESSION IS PUBLISHED FOR INFORMATION.

1. There is again likely to be severe competition for entry to the Medical
Schools and, in lesser degree, to the Faculties of Dentnitry, EEngineeiirg and
Science, whi-e a solid background of scientific knowledge and a high rctndd
of attainment are prerequisites to acceptance. Entry to oGther lUiiiv ity c< iur-
estor students of potential ability is relatively easier, and every effort will be
made to secure vacancies for all well qualified students who are recommended
through the usual channels.
Students are reminded that entry to the Universities of Oxford, Cam-
bridge and London is most difficult to secure and their attention is drawn to the
advantages of seeking admission to the residential Colleges of the University of
Wales, the Universities in Scotland and the provincial Universities in England.
2. Students should, so far as is practicable, complete their pre-matricu-
lation studies in their own country, and should take advantage of such local
facilities for i'gher education as. nay exist before seeking recommendation for
admission Wt Universiies in the United Kingdom.
3. It is most undesirable that direct applioations should be made, either by
students themselves or sponsoring organizations on their behalf, for admission
to eiducatioIil 'institutions, "or that would-be cardidatts should come to the.
Unitled Kingom inunannounced anid without recommendation in the hope of
siBrirng entrance. Students are strongly advised not to proceed to the United
Kingdom until they a're assured that a place is available for them.
4. Universities are tending to insist on early application and the main
body of applications should be in my hands not later than the 31st January,
2954, if full advantage is to be taken of the places available.
'Applications for entry to medical schools, however, must reach me by
the 1st July this year, since the entry lists to most medical schools clos-e early
in the autumn previous to the year for which admission is desired. Similarly,
applications for entry to medical schools in 1955 should reaoh me by the 1st July,
1954, and intending candidates are hereby warned accordingly.
In the following categories also an early approach is essential and appli-
cations should reach me by the 80th November, 1953 at the latest.
(a) Courses in Dentistry, Engineering and Science.
(b) Teachers' training courses (including physical training, domestic
science, and Froebel and other kindergarten training) for which the
sponsorship of the Ministry of Education is required.
(c) Admission to Oxford and Cambridge Colleges.
(d) Awards under the 1,000,000 Colonial Development and Welfare
Scholarship Scheme.
5. Students proceeding to Universities, particularly Oxford and Cambridjge.
are reminded that they have to incur certain initial expenses, e.g.., on.the pV'-
chase of booksgnd honsehold'equipilnts for their rooms, and ;ie ,dvised.t9 -
provide themselves with a small suin of money to cover such contingencies,
whi6h they inl't otherwi e five difficulty in meeting out.of tlie initiil instal-
ment of their n:ll-ownce. C;ntion Money,1 t'oo, varying from 40 to 75. ispay-
able on onteri'ng an Oxf.rd or Can.biilge College, although t lie greater;part of
this is eventually repayable when'thest:'ident poes down.
6. If a student d-ecides to withdraw or to relinquish a place whichhas beenti
obtained for him, he should report at once so that I may be informed and notify
the University or College concerned.
