A. G. M. At Carib Cinema
"Let the Banana Association buy shares in Mr. John van Gcest's
banana shipping ficet' was the gist of the last reso'acion (o it of at-) at the
Annual General Meeting of the Dominica Bapana Crooaers Asscciation
which took place at the Carib Cinema last Monday. Delegates w e r e
enthusiastic about this one, which pointed out that prices h a d b e e n
decreasing, but Ceet's were s'll making money from their shipping. It
was carried and the resolution further suggested that the shares be bought
from member Association's contributions to WINBAN.

The election of the B o a r d of
Management resulted in the follow-
ing members being re-elected for the
year ending April 30th 1964:--
Messrs R. S. Fadelle, C. J.
Ferreira, Egbert Green, S t a ff o r d
Shillingford and D. A. Durban.
The sixth member elected was Mr.
E. L. Honeychurch.
The Chairman of the Association,
Mr. G. A. Winston, in his opening
address dressed the gra\e threat to

ward Islands posed by the formida-
ble competition which might be
expected in the future by the entry

cheaply and efficiently produced
bananas from Latin America a n d
the French West Indies. He said
that confronted by these threats it
was vitally necessary to take imme-
diate steps to raise the efficiency of
banana production in the Windward
The Board had therefo re
approached Government w i t h
proposals for an Agronomic Pro-
gramme for this island specifically
aimed at raising efficiency standards
in the industry. It was gratifying
to report (he said) that the Honour-
able Minister for T r a d e and
Production had treated the matter as
of national importance a n d w a s
giving the closest and most active
attention to i n a uu r a t in g an
Agronomic Programme both as a
long term project and temporarily
and immediately on an interim basis
with available resources.
The Chairman also referred to
the special summer price increase of
ep per pound which he stressed was
not an increase ofthe Company's
Incentive Bonus but a actual incre-
ase of the contract price applied to
the period of year when bananas

v.cre in greatesr demand and retail
prices at their peak.
He informed the meeting that it
was hoped to finalise the terms of a
new Banana Contract with Messrs
Geest Industries by the end of the
year after discussions.in U. K. be-
tween Winban representatives and
the firm this summer, The Chair-
man warned producers of the great:
harm being done to the industry by
the too f-aly cutting of bananas-
the roi-ng a-nd wastage caused by
the resulting staleness seriously affect-
ed the quality of the ripened ban-
anas. A poor quality outturn meant
loss of money for the firm and a
reduction in the demand of Wind-
ward Islands bananas.
The Annual Report of the Board
and the audited Accounts of the
Association for 1962 were approved
and adopted.
Among the most important re-
solutions from the District Branches
passed at the meeting were those in
connection with the purchase of mec-
hanical equipment by the Association
for road building and development
of banana holdings, the award of
prizes for the best cultivations and
bonuses to the most successful
growers, and the reporting to the
District Branches of matters of in-
terest to banana growers dealt with
at Board of Management meetings.

William Wilberforce.: 1759-1833

0 ye;us of shame,
But one man's fame!
You were the cradle and the nest
Of courage during deep unrest.
You remind me of the phase
When deep in prehistoric days
Egyptians held a race enslaved;
Yet a day came when they were saved,
For Moses, rising from the dust,
With faith of steel that could not rust
(Save when he struck the good hill twice)
Exposed to each man latent vice,
While he was he, the chosen one
To fight the fight of God alone!
Thus with stern love he freed the Hebrews,
And gave them their enfranchisn d dues:
But Moses was a Hebrew too!
It was not the case with you,
O Wilberforce, good child of God.
You met and conquered, not with sword
But with a pen and tongue of grace;
You delivered our race
Fram their crude taskmasters' whip
And their sweat without a tip.
Though among the sou's of glory
You are named in classic story,
Are you honoured in the grave
By the men you fought to save?
Ydu and others of your troop -
Loving, brave, immortal group:
I at least esteem you hi gh.
-- As, the eestials o the sky.

Interracial Romance Banned

CAPETOWN, South Africa- (ANP)- The poignancy of South
Africa's rigid law against interracial romance was dramatically illustrated
in the case of an outstanding coloured singer and a white music lecturer
who were forced to flee the country, leaving behind a record version of their
clandestine relations.
Caught in the clutches of the Immorality Act of the land of Apartheid
were Maud Damons, described as Cape Town's top coloured singer, and
her paramour, Stanley Glasser, a lecturer in music at the University of
Cape Town.
When Miss Damons, z6 and Glasser 35, found that their love was so
deep that they could nt keep away from each other, they carried on a secret
affair after dark. But they were discovered and forced to flee the country.
Both are now living in Lobatsi, in Bechuanaland.
However, Miss Damons, who reportedly gave freely of her love to
Glasser, left behind a record of a song written by one Collin Campbell,
which aptly described the intensity of her longing for her white lover. The
recording, which has receive much publicity is entitled simply. "Dark."
The lyrics of the song, which w 11 be labelled "After-hours Love,' are:
"In the dark of the night
I must come to you. ....
Bring to you my love ....
When the daylight is gone,
I can run to you . .
When sunshine's in the sky
I wonder why

"The world and we just don't agree,
But then I guess
The night is best for us.
So wait till the night and the dark. ..
Call me back to you
To cling to you,
And bring to you,
My love (After dark)."
The song was ruled Illegal in Soeth Africa.

R.T.G. Dilemma

by Mable James

In view of Mr. Franklin Baron's
catrgotical deniil of thi findings of
the Comminitc of Investigation on
Saturday 27th April, 1 am asking
cv'ry t.x Payer in l(oau to secure
a copy of the "' Repoit ofci.c Roseiu
Town Co,'ncil Inquiy 1962"' for
peiu al. Shortly b fore tie D.U.P P.
government went out of power they
succeeded in changing a five into an
eight and now cmey are trying to
give the tax payers of Roseau a six
for a nine.
Page two, paragraph one of the
report discloses that the bass for the
Inquiry "was a suggestion by Dr.
Wartythe then acting Senior Medi-
ral Officer who after hearing the
frequent complaints of srff inefficcin-
cy, maladministration of funds" etc.
suggested that an Inquiry be set up
The inquiry goes on to say "in some
correspondence from the Mayor to
the Ministry of Labour ar.d Social
Services, is to be observed a marked
s rain of resentment and at timts
Look up page four, chapter two,
where from the mayor's evidence it
became clear t( the investigating
Committee that "there was a strong
current of resentment running thr-
ough the organization of the Town
Council and that Personnel manage-
ment and relationships had to a large
extent broken down."
Paragraph 3 says ''a good deal of
roblee \ as based on a keen rivalt
it itcy between
the Mayor and the Chief executive
Officer the town clerk. It may be
fair to state that the forcefulness of
the language of the Mayor and the
unfortunate reactions to some of his
efforts were the direct cause of this."
Page four paragraph 9 gives you
the facts about the quarrel between
the Mayor and the Town Clerk
over the coffins moving in and out
of the R, T, C.
Page seven records that "many of
the otticials are of the opinion that
the Councillors, and the mayor in
particular, attempt :o interfere with
the staff too much".
Page eight informs us how the
discipline in the R. T. C. is chal-
lenged. ''It has been argued that
this state of affairs was precipitated
by the repeated and unnecessary
presence of the Mayor and .by his
uncalled for m e ddl i n g in staff
matters. Instances have been given
where he re-employed men who had
been dismissed for good cause, and
of his encouraging workmen to flout
authority by looking t.) him for pro-
tection. There have been s o m
instances where workmen were usec
to do odd jobs for the mayor."
Page nine explains that "Nc
proper records are k e p t. "The
method of storing pipes, brooms,
and items of equipment for the usi
of the council is very faulty a n c
provides ready scope for fraud tc
those who get to know of its
Chapter three deals with finance
and financial control, "The audi
has tried in vain to get the Counci
to bring up to date its accounts."

readiness to write off sums of
money. In one case, however ,the
mersenger was sent with $120.00
to pay councillors. She returned
a few minutes later and said she
had lost the money. She then
asked for an advance to pay it
back The Cha:rman told the
messenger "The council v ill stand

tion by the chalrim'n. The mess-

On page 14 we find that R.T.C.
records are imperilled; 'a proper
system of filing is necessary for
the safety and ready production
of records. The practise of ex-
traciing documents from the fil-
ing cabinet and of keeping these
for long periods without any
adequate notes being left as to
their whereabouts is most unsatis-
fact ry. Correspondence emanat-
ing from the council should not
be destroyed once it has reached
the hands of the address. Pay-
sheets, vouchers and increment
certificates should not be destroy-
ed without good reason. Two
instances came to the at en ion
of the Committee where this was
done by the Mayor in a moment
of frustration and anger".
Now, my dear Tax Payers of
Roseau, Mr. Baron as you can
see for yourself, was only paying
lip service to Demi cy and has
failed to practice it in his own
party. The DUPP hates the truth,
that is why they walked away
from leg. Co. meeting last week.,
to put their house in order, then
why, was not Mr. R H. Lock-
hart.elected as Mayor? This'might
have inspired more confidence
in the electorate. Instead Mr.
Lestrade is allowed to. practice
his new cult which is sabotaging
the morale of the R. T. C.
Have the D.U.P P. realised that
the misdemear ou's of the R.T.C.
with the hard ejined, blood and
sweat of the the people of Roseau
can be challenged in a court of
law if they are not prepared to
untie this Gordian Knot?

Conference will be conduct-
ed by the Reverend Father
O. T. Davy, O. P., of Trini-
The purpose of the Cana
Conference is the study of
busband-wife relationships
and development of sound
family living. The family as
the basic cell of society can
flourish only if that basic
cell, that is family life,, is
sound and healthy. Too
many people are not aware
of what constitutes family
life marriage and its res-
ponsibilities and the obliga-
tions of parenthood. There-
fore, it is important that.all
married couples understand
the meaning: of the. basic
concepts of marriage and
how to apply them to every-
day life.
Father Davy will be re-
membered for his eloquent
talks on family life tdthe
members of the Sci -
gue Catholic Woman when
he wa in Dominica for the
inter-island meeting of Cath-
olic Women's Organizations.
While here he also gave se-
veral excellent talks to the
officers and members of the
Credit Union.
We hope to publish details
of the Conference next week.

WE recognize well this Government's
endeavours to save money in little
ways, such as by selling school textbooks,
and are sure that such laudable parsimony
can earn nothing but praise fr o m the
Colonial Office. But really this renewal
of an old Poor Law edict that underpri-
vileged persons, in order to get free treat-
ment in hospital, must fi rst of all hobble
around seeking a certificate signed by a
Member of the Board of Visitors, Minis-
ter of Religion, Member of the Legislative
Council, Town Council or V i lla g e
Bo ar d, District Magistrate, Medical
Practitioner or Justice of the Peace, set-
t i n g forth that the applicant is not in a
position to pay and is afit person to re-
ceive gratuitous treatment... in other
words a type of means test document before
they are admitted, is putting the c 1 o c k
back far enough to break the springs.
Q-- 06 I 04

o.IeCLy kIC wulu UL w.ZAii L-uiuEiuLd-
is A part) has reached a stage when even
the very poor have their dignity. The
old charity-poor law stigma is being
erased from the statute books of advanced
communities. M o s t Hospitals have
on their administrative staff an Almoner
trained in the diplomatic assessment of a
patient's capacity to pay, among o t h e r
Our italics.

There is no trained Almoner at Prin-
cess Margaret Hospital, and in our opin-
ion there ought to be; such a post would
be an investment, especially if the Medi-
cal department feel e s deprived of fees.
W h e r e there is doubt of the patient's
inability to pay for treatment and 1 o d g-
ment, the wise trained Almoner will give
that patient the benefit of the doubt. Of
course in a Welfare State like B r i t ain
w i t h its social insurance, even bedside
interrogation as a means ts: is out of order.
Dominica's recent budget g i v e s a
reason for this Poor Law action: an in-
crease in Total Estimated Expenditure for
Medical Services (Head 15) of $4,928 is
to be, offset by an increase in Revenue of
$7,616 from Hospital, Medical, Ambu-
lance and X-ray fees (Head 8, I t e m s
17-20). In other words, the patients
must pay.

cently: "I am shocked at the terrible gap
between the comfortable people and the
very poor in this island, but still m o r e
shocked at the indifference of some per-
sons in authority towards the unfortun-
ates, when I consider that it was not so

In Praise Of Ag.

Mr. Editor, It is rather encourag-
ing to know that there is a paper in
our lovely island which is just and
fair. Knowing how difficult it is to
maintain such high standards, I am
making it my duty oln behalf of
every patriotic Dominican to wish you
the necessary courage to persevere.
Permit me therefore to ex p o s e
certain facts concerning the most im-
poltant aspect of our island
i.e. "Agriculture". There has been
lately a sudden outburst of activity
in this department, strong enough to
be remarkable. Although we must
admit that this department is like so
many others, "an established machi-
nery", we also know that the
successful working o f i t depends
almost entirely on the management.
It is therefore agree a ble to hear
several peasants and farmers express
their satisfaction over the present phase
of activity, since the department was
passed over to a son ofthe soil, in the
person of young Mr. J.B. Yankey,
as acting superintendent.
Mr. Editor, in th e event that
Mr. Yankey had proved himself not
fit for the post, I would express it in
the same way; that is to say with facts
and farmers; Therefore I feel it would

son or persons who think him
incapable of the post to express their
views in like manner. For in such
cases where a people can voice its
opinion impartially in matters con-
cerning the general public, it permits
a government of goodwill to act
with firmness and w i s d o m.
Thanking you for space.

National, not
I was in the gallery at Leg. Co.
and heard the Chief Minister com-
plain about people misinterpreting
)1 -- -5 -

Government's intentions, such peo-
ple being indigenous or non-indi-
genous. I want to know what I
am. Am I indigenous? I am a
young man of coloured race with a
little French in my family, like the
C.M. himself. I also want to know
what is my uncle who is second
generation born in the United States
I: he indigenous? Both my uncle,
who is pro-Kennedy, and myself,
who am pro-C.M., incline to inter-
pret Government actions as we please.
Kindly explain Yours truly,
Reply. Both your uncle: and your-
self are Nationals of the U.S. and
of Dominica (British) resp actively,
but neither of you is indigenous in
the strict basic sense of the term.
Although the word indigenous
means native, it also means aborigin-
al, belonging from beginning, not
immigrant. Save for the American
Indians in the U.S. and the Caribs
and Arawaksofthe West Indies,
no citizens of those two lands, so
different in size, can strictly call
themselves indigenous Both lands
contain populations consisting main-
ly of migrant or imported commun-
ities from earlier times. Like my-
self and some 60,000 other citizens,
you are a present-day native of a
mixed community in which colour-
ed Nationals predominate. --

Children And
Income Tax
Madam, I am a widow and
would never marry again after hav-
ing a good husband, when I see the
way some of my neigbours are being
treated. Let me tell you of a matter
already mentioned in your paper bu,
needing more mention Men are
going away, mostly to England, and
after they get a job they write their
wife or the girl who has their child-
ren, saying send me the children's
birth certificates so that I can get in-
come tax exemption, and I will send
you the money for them. T hese
women do as they are required, and
what is the result? They never get
another black cent from the man.
It is for Cournment here to name
a proper place i n England where
these forsaken women can write for
news of the men, who hide them-
selves away after they have fixed up
their tax business. I see my neigh-
bours pay lawyers to write on their
behalf to get satisfaction That is
nor tight. If a man is a father he
owes something to his child and to
the woman bearing the child. Our
land must look after its own.

During my stay in the U. K.

I had the privilege of seeing those
who were physically handicapped in
one way or another being brought
to and from church on stretchers on

bers of the congregation to a place

Roseau and in other p a r t sw h o

together with their congregations in

We in Dominica, seem to suffer from that traditional disease of hav-
ing very short memory on one hand, and are too readily willing to accept
a doctrine on the other, without exercising the minimun of effort to think
deeply and sensibly on the issue in question., Ic is a pity, that those who
profess and call themselves intellectuals find themselves victims of the above
condition described. We must be prepared to think hard and straight if
we desire this country of ours to progress satisfaclo ily.
In Mr F, A. Baron's article which appeared in the DOMINICA
HERALD of Saturday 27th April 1963, he only succeeded in making
himself another conspicuous victim of what has been described above. I
would be happy to quote for Mr. Baron's benefit, as well as that of those
who may happen to be unfortunate to be a similar casualty that "where
ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise. Another statement which will bear
me out in support of my criticism of his article, is that, when the fox cannot
get the grapes it says that they are sour.
When the D. U. P. P. was in power, and Mr Baron was then head
of the Government, I wrote an article to be read over WIBS, Roseau. Mrs.
Narodney, who was then programme assistant, returned me the article,
stating that she was unable to do so without its being channeled through the
P. R. O. of the Chief Minister's Office. Was that freedom oft h e a i r.
Was that Democracy: I pause for a reply. It seems strange, that some-
thing is right for some people, and the same thing wrong for another set,
It was in the same regime that Mr. Baron tried to prevent a General Election,
and failed miserably, when these Elections had been laid down in the 1959
constitution. Was this Democracy? Tarry a little.
Mr. Baron must understand that once that I am alive and sane he
must not try to come to the public with his frivolous and cunning ideas
and hope to get away with them scotfree. He may do so secretly, if he
caresto, "Ycu can fcol ome ofthe people some of the time, but y o u
cannot fool all the people all the time."

Healer? Divine? SageP they
"Dark Puritan" By Dr, M.G. Smith, Univers.ty of California, Los Angel- in4
es, Puoiisned ny the Department of Extra Mural Stuaies, university of an
the West Indies. adv
Dr. Michael G. Smith was at the time senior lecturer in Sociology of diff
the University of the West Indies when he wrote this book. In reviewing, dan
we must remember that the sociologist only describes sociological fac.s and
trends, he does not pass moral or political juagement. as sociology is not a map
normative science. When Dr. Smith therefore collects the narrative ot the'
Norman Paul, the Grenadian healer, he does not report )t as ift i were a less
case history, he simply transcribes the narra.ive as Ie took it down on his pla
tape recorder, and giving from time to time in a foot-note an explanatory pea
comment. In his introduction he puts this narrative into the context of hav
the socio-economic-cultural-poitical b.caground of Grenada. It is to be use
p,tied that this introduction is not nuch longer and more detailed with re- boa
guard to the religious background of the African religion. of the Yorubas perl
and other tribes. The reader who is innocent of any knowledge in Com- min
parative History of Rehgions will be very thankful for toe "Ilotes on the fide
Powers" at the back of the book, but will still be rather confused, su
The,e remarks however, will not dissuade those interested i the social o
and religious history of the West Indies irom reaaing the "'Dark Puritan. ser
On the contrary, it is felt that this book mignt inspire interested persons to ste
take up research into the different manifestations ot religious hbeit apparent- far
ly so different from their own. There is also inspiration tor those wno want all
to find reasons behind tne increase or mne trade in charms, protective and of
others, the surge of superstition and incliation towards magic. mi
The narrat.ve itself breaches sincerity and discerning introspection. The
background of a young man with ambition growing up on an estate in a ha
fanuly of farm labourers, his inner fight for his own religious convictions the
and the final development of h s ighiy indvidal cult. mo
The discrepancy of the adtterent turns ot culture and social back-
ground min Greuada, the development of partition of labour and early union- -
ism, depression and inter migration in the different West Indian territories,
all add to the colourful picture of West Indian life in one of its not too
common forms.
The respect with which Dr. Smli threats the simple narrative, speaks
for his saenutic integrity, and cuntubutes to odr attempts to put together for
ourse'f he I1 sa'a' puzzle of the plura.itic society in which we live.
Dr. Elizaveth Muller _

Don't sayI didn't tell you!

One of the things an' observant
visitor to Dominica notices, but
which natives scateiy see because
th.y never see tnem witn other than
roving eyes, are the boats which our
fishermen have made themselves, in
which to go to sea. They are dug
out,, and very few people in the
world know now they are made.
It is ingenious and one may hope
that this is a native craft which
will not be lost and forgotten.
They have been used for many yeats,
and some are even sailed with a
square sail, which may well have
delighted Noah-when he was a
little boy-they are truly historic.
and can only exist where huge trees
grow in the forest. Their tradition.
al design is, I believe, peculiar to this
It is, however, rather absurd that
our fishermen have never outgrown
these primitive craft which are cer-
tainly dangerous, and probably are
more often lost than we know . .
and seldom are good Samaritans
sent to find them when they are
I presume these are not to be
endowed with expensive out-board
motors Some changes are inevita-
ble when supposedly thinking peo-
ple desire to share their benefits and
inventions with their underprivileged
neighbours. I knew the out-
boards of the past, and used them
myself for years when fishing for big
game fishes around the Berry Islands
Without doubt these engines have
been improved out of all recognition
during the last forty years, and their
prices have substantially increased
also, As I recollect it, my first cost

me about $15o, and rumour hints
that they cost about the same today
- multipled by ten. Father
Christmas is giving them away to
selected fishermen, but I have not
heard that fishermen in any of the
islands have made an equivalent
improvement, and unless t h e y
suddenly discover singular and
unexpected mechanical abilities, I
pity them with my whole heart.
My own experience with such toys
is obsolete. I lived to tell the tale--
but only just . .
Outboard engines are harder to
handle than the common internal
combustion engines used in cars and
trucks. Chauffeurs are said to
think themselves a grade or so supe-
rior to the fisherfolk, but we hear of
continual accidents on our roads,
incredible escapes but also not a few
deaths witness last week, for an
example. An accident on the road
often finds a rescuer within a few
minutes, or ate le ph o n e the
telephone service outside the three-
mile limit is notoriously unreliable,
and fishermen stand a very slim
chance of reaching a friendly hospital
when an accident happens at sea.
Knowing this, the Bahamians de-
cided that it was better to give the
fishermen better boats and sails which
they understood none better. The
ships do not have to be large to be
be as safe as anything that floats, so
they can stay away for several days if
they choose and still they bring in
their fishes, not only fresh, but alive.
Their boats are built with wells,
which are simply 'holds' which fill
with water up to sea level, built
water-tight except where water is

opposed to be. Catches of fish are thinking
ned into the 'wells' from which selves t
y can be dipped out with a hand who do
. alive, fresh and perfect for mar- one ti'i
and the customers. This has been chase a
existence for at least fifty years, it lo
d possibly much longer. Its main due for
rantage is that fishermen are not peals f
iged to learn anything new and and bitl
icult, and are not exposed to the
iger of gasoline, bout which
ople who smoke cigarettes and tip
tches away without seeing that --
y are extinct, are notoriouly care-
, Nobody tl whom I have ex-
ined this system in Dominica ap- g ff
