SEVENTH OILS AND FATS
CONFERENCE.
The Report of the Conference is now
being considered by participating Govern-
ments. The Conference recommended
no change in the basic price of Copra and
so for the year beginning 1st September,
W53, the price will be 62. 10s. per ton
F.O.B., that is, $300.00 B.W.I. This price
may be reviewed before the end of the
year, probably in August, 1954.
T1-' Conference devoted considerable
time to assessing the part played by suc-
cessive Oils and Fats Agreements during
the past decade. It was agreed that
these arrangements had proved of great
valuo in building an important regional
iud.;str:, and that policy should be di-
rected 10 continuing nimasures of protec-
tion to ensure that both the producers of
coconuts a':d the procssors- should gon-
tin., to enjoy rearoicable measures of
p:'o;ctlon. in futrr_, due r-eard being
-aid to t'h interess cf consumers.

form in its provisions based mainly on
protection by tariffs against outside com-
petition, but working towards free trade
within the area in coconuts and derived
products. The Conference decided to
ask for the support of Her Majesty's Gov-
ernment in implementing this policy
and in framing suitable legislation.
The Conference agreed that a fair
average price for crude coconut oil, cor-
responding to the basic price of copra,
would be $2.20 B.W.I. F.O.B. per imperial
gallon.
The Conference further agreed that
since the region as a whole was deficient
in supplies of copra, no true surplus could
be held to exist at this stage, although lo-
cal supplies might accumulate tempora-
rily. It was agreed that these local sup-
plies must be disposed of within the re-
gion and the output of processing plants
adjusted to local markets.

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

The making of baskets, bagi, mats,
hats etc.. of fibre is becoming an import-
ant industry in St.Vincent. Thishandi-
craft industry if encouraged and devel-
opedl will greatly assist in solving many
of our economic problems by providing
considerable useful employment and a
most welcome addition to ou'r export
trade.
For this industry to develop and ex-
pand quickly it is vital that supplies of
th, raw materials should be available in
Sre:tly increased quantities.
The main fibres used in local handi-
craft- come from the leaves of the
"Will or "Screw" Pine (Pandanus
sp). and Sisal (Agave sp.). These plants
















SSAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 18 AUGUST, 1953.-(No. 49)._ 265


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 he 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 andt if planted closely
-enough can b- in rde int, a stock proof
fence. Sisal is ;nlson anti-erosion crop
if planted aloig co'iltour' ,irriers.
All farmers !oth large and small are
asked to make every effort to grow
these plants wherever suitable. All those
who are interested and whvo miy require
further information and advice should
