KINcsTON. (ANP) Jamaica and the
United States formally signed a de-
fense pact here a few days ago. The
document, signed by Ambassador
William C. Doherty for the U.S.A.
and Sir Alexander Bustamante,
Prime Minister, for Jamaica, makes
no promise of respect for Jamaica's
t:rr torial integrity by the U.S.
But this shrewdly avoided aspect
of the agreement could have wide
interpretation such as permitting th:
United States to use the island as a
foothold in defense of this part of
the hemisphere, should the occasion
arise in a war.
From the military assistance giv-
en by the U.S, Jamaica will inau-
gurate a coast-guard, and air patrol
force, and bolster her defenseand
police forces with equipment adapt-
able to rugged country use.
Doherty said that the agreement
brings the United States and Jama-
ica "much closer." He added that
the defense articles and defe c: ser-
vices rendered to to the island by
the United .States, were for "legiti-
mate self defense, internal security

Ground testing in Britain of the gant de Havilland Blue Streak
rocket and its powerful Rolls-Royce engines has now reached an advanced
stage, and fight testing will shortly begin at the Woomera Rocket Range
n South Australia.
Blue Streak will be the first stage of a three-stage satellite launching
vehicle On its launching pad trie complete vehicle will weigh more than
After blast-off the first stage will go up about 40 miles, reaching a
speed of 6,8oo miles an hour at the end of its two-and-a-half minute
For the second stage of the launching vehicle a smaller rocket
(supplied by France) will be carried up on Blue Streak's nose, and will
be fired automatically at the end of the first-stage thrust period.
From this point it will climb steeply to a height of about 12z miles
while Blue Streak plunges back to Earth.
When these trials have proved satisfactory, a third and still smaller
ocket, built in Germany, will be added to the nose of the French rocket.
This will begin firing, again automatically, at the end of the second-stage
hrust period, about 120 o iies up
At this height the air is very thin and the third rocket, meeting with
little resistance, will t:ain a velocity of about zo,ooo in. p. h, and be
ible to go on upwards if necessary for several thousand miles.
The tests form part of a big scheme supported by Australia, Boitain,

Space Telephone Lines
This Eu:opean'Satellite Launcher would be capable ,of putting
communications satellites into orbit.
Of the various types of system being considered is one suggested by
Breta n under which twelve satellites would be placed at equal intervals
and heights in a circular equatorial orbit of up to 7,500 nautical miles
above the Earth and would provide hundreds of new *telephone lines" to
most places in the world.
Not only telephone messages, but pictures and television shows will
be beamed into space from ground stations, to be re-transmitted by
satellite to stations thousands of miles away.
The first British station for satellite communications is already
operating at Goonhilly Downs, in Cornwall,
it made history, you may remember, when it picked up and relayed
to millions of viewers pictures televised from the United States of America
to Europe via the satellite Telstar.
Since then it has received and transmitted hundreds of telephone
calls across the Atlantic, using both Telstar and the later Relay satellite,
and has given us a vivid glimpse of what developments the future holds'
When space communications networks are highly developed, we
shall be able to dial a telephone number and speak to friends thousands of
miles away as easily and clearly at if they lived in the next street. BIS

MENTAL HEALTH NOTES
Psychiatry And DrUgs
Early Steps In Psychology
The treatment of mental diseases is a comparatively
new science, and, as people in Dominica heard during
the recent successful Mental Health Week, many s t e p s
have been taken since the bad old days when "lunatics"
were simply locked up and ignored.
Probing into mental processes started, perhaps, with
the work' on hypnotism by Mesmer o v e r one hundred
years ago, but the great fillp to the work was the research
in abnormal and normal psychology by Sigmund Freud
at the beginning of this century. Two further schools of
thought also sprang from Vienna, those of Adler and
Jung. Results of their analysis of themselves and neuro-
tic patients led to the school of psychoanalysis, which had
undoubted successes in all minor c a s e s of mental ill-
Tackling Major Diseases
Soon after Wcrld War II discoveries wer m a d e
which, although not affecting complete 'cures except in a
minority of cases, were able to afford re'icf in the major
diseases such as schizophrenia, paranoia and the manic
depressive states. One was the use of Electric S h o c k
Therapy, which produces a state of temporary unconsci-
ousness ind the other was by injection of a massive dose
of insulin, inducing a coma regarded as therapeutic. The
same treatment is now being used with other drugs where-
by the patient is put to s le e p for several days. In the
meantime, the psychoanalysts continued to struggle w i t h
these major diseases, by endeavouring, to discover the root
cause (generally beginning in some childhood stress) and
dispellig the subconscious emotion by helping the patient
to rccognise it and recover from it.
In the late 40s, a drug which had been u s e d for
centuries as a relieffor high blood pressure in India was
rediscovered and applied clinically in the West for the
relief of mental tension. This drug reserpine (Serpas.1)
is' particularly valuable for calming manic and psychotic
states. A drug named chlorpromazine was discovered
a little later which had a remarkable effect on agitated
patients, particularly the neurotics. This new group of
drugs are now in general use and are known as tranqui-
l i z e r s. Although some analysts feared that the use of
tranquilizers might dull the minds of patients and prevent
a full analysis, it is now generally recognized that their
use often prevents a "nervous breakdown" or psychotic
episode (Lading to hospi al z tion) and makes treatment
easier and' shorter. It should be noted that a full psycho-
ana ysis may tale anything from one to three years and is
thus naturally a very expensive treatment.
In the last fifteen years further developments have
taken place which attempt to decrease difficulties that
inhibit certain kinds of patients from discussing their in-
nermost fears and problems, or make them entirely una-
ble to reach their innermost feelings. One of these is

Mescaline And L S D
Research was also instituted on what was intended
to be an improvement on the gronp therapy based on the
use of a drug called lysergic acidudiethylamide (LSD for
short). This synthetis drug produces a hallucinatory
state similar to that produced by the drag mescaline, an
alkaloid derived from the mescal beach growing in Texas
and New Maxico (Sophora secundiflora) and also from the
Sophora Williamii. This latter, known in Mexico- as
peyotl, come from a common button cactus and was used
by the Aztecs in their religious ceremonies.
The drug LSD. which is not physiogically habit-for-
ming, produces, when taken, a bizarre state of mind
which was once thought to be like that of the schizoph-
renic. It supporters claim that it "exposes" the subcons-
cious to the user "completely" and that at the same
time the memory of the exposure is retained. If this were
true the function and need for pschoanalysis with its high
fees and long treatment would be outmoded in favour of
a quick cheap remedy. The group which makes h;gh
claims for LSD were original at Harvard IUniveisity,
but were asked to discontinue their research or leave as
a result of the publication of careful research studies by
scientists in Universities in Europe North America and
Asia, as to the drug's actual lack of efficacy as a means of
treating mentally ill persons. In addition the extravagant
promises of "fast" and "easy cares" attracted a consider-
able number of young people, intelligent people, with
emotional difficulties and confusions, seeking the so-
called "happiness pill", and the qualities of a "cult"

IN THE CABINET
By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter VIII
Once just before I returned to Dominica after half a
life's abs nce, we went to Haworth in Yorkshire to see the
Bronte's house. The melancholy of those narrow forbid-
ding rooms where the spirited girls were boxed up by a
stern father, Charlotte's pathetic dress with its fantastically
narrow waist (no wonder she died in childbirth); the sad
wind-swept moors where Emily, no coward soul, found
liberation and insight, the grim tombstones in the adjoin-
ing churchyard.. all these things filled me with pity and
ov- wonder. How would the Brontes have fared in the lavish
ons but resistant atmosphere of Dominica?
ith There was a pub across from the house and church,
and sitting opposite to an old man who looked like the
up' ideil Victorian "gaffer", my husband and I sipped tank-
so aids of beer. We got talking to the old man and be told
us anecdotes about the Brontes. about how "wild Branwell"
ib- used to drink oi the pub and how his sisters would have
we to come and take him home.
in "The trouble about them was, they all wrote books."
nd said the old man
ber "I've wrtten a boo', too," I sa:d"It is about an island."
tee And I told him someLning of my misgivings. The old gaffer
:u- studied my expression as 1 said the words, and made a
ia- remark which 1 have never forgotten:
"Don't worry. When Bran drank here and them
of girls wrote at the rectory, every squire hereabouts thought,
he was Heathcliff"
lcts My novel, The Orchid House, caused more commo-
er- tion in the confines of Dominica than its far greater fore-
ol- runners did at Haworth. When I met the then Adminis-
trator of Dominica at a party shortly after my return, he
t is (a stranger to me) asked humorously:
"Do you think you will last out here?"
To which I replied with equal bonhomie: "Longer
S than you, Your Honour."'

SA cult alone would not have been an insurmountable danger, if
the drug itself were not poisonous. It has, however, been conclusively
demonstrated that the drug is definitely toxic to the human brain (the
hallucinations experienced by the users are in part the result of cerebral ir-
ritation), Moreover although the first claims were that the drug's effects
wear offwithin 81 hours, it is now known that severe and sometimes sqb-
tie personality changes last over 48 hours, and distort both the judgement
and performance of the taker.

"SO THEY SAY"--
BY BOB RAY
.One week ago today, as the North-bond airliner raced down the
runway gathering speed and finally lifted from Dominica, the first deportee
who happened to be an American, might well mark the advance of this
island into the hubbub and turmoil of the Twentieth Century. For here,
explained in deed and action but not by word and letter is the undisput-
ed truti that our society will not tolerate certain forms of ideologies nor
behaviours ot deemed by' the authorities as the norm, the accepted, the
'$rescribed -Our deportee was not really considered an outlaw; not of
the gun.toting kind of yesteryear, but in the most modern sense as an out-
law of&te mind and the senses. And the act of ejecting this alleged
misfit comes under the general heading of Advancing Civilisation.
There are those who will argue against such an action but in one
sense it is like arguing on behalf of a weed that is threatening to choke
your cultivation. Would these people ay: "Let the weed stay. It too
has a right to grow & flourish"? But no, we are deptaJent upon our crops
and we cannot allow the weed to dwarf, yes, even kill-out nat which we
rely upon to maintain us. However, let us not forget to praise those who
took the action. Their alertness, their bravery in the matter, their decision
to act are the things we must be grateful for, and it is this newer concept
that lifts the distressing affair to a far greater and more noble effort. We
people living in Dominica are moving ahead.
During the first span of time covering Dominica's first deportation a
more insidious situation developed and was dealt with that would make
fascinating conversation for those who now only have a smattering of the
facts. Already people are beginning to embroider the tale with their im-
agination, filling in the gaps with wild tales born straight from the fairy-
story hooks. We mean the "Harvard students" the -Mescaline Boys'
the Researchers" who began assembling in Dominica a fortnight ago.
Much of the story has remained shrouded in official mystery and perhaps
will remain so bu ra t perhaps it is best for details to continue to be fuzzy
since the average person might find difficulty in understanding the true
facts that are both scientific and technical.
Once again Government had another thorny problem dumped in
their laps and this time, it is believed, they had the help of the authorities
of Mexico and the US in solving their dilemma. And again the decision
was decisive and carried out in an amazing series of events that makes one
proud, ifa trifle breathless, by what has taken here on t'ny Dominica.
We chanced on a book one time that described Dominica as THE
place to hide from the law and society. The wind, mountainous condition.
sparsely populated by "ignorant peasants," it said, offer an ideal location
of the common criminal, the bizarre and tormented! The events of the past
few weeks belie the book (which is easily accessible and speaks with great
authority) and we hope the publicity generated lately that Dominica is
definitely not populated by "ignorant peasants" will dampen the stories
"in Dominica, one can get away with anything."
Surely the Associated Press and other news services will pick up the
story of what happened when the "Mescaline Boys" landed in Dominica,
and carry the facts to the four corners of the earth: that Dominica is a
respected, no-nonsense island and furthermore that its people and its
government are wide-awake to insidious and harmful influences and arc
quick to act (in this case much quicker than Mexico) when danger
For those who don't know: mescaline is a drug found only in the
carrot like taproot of a thoroughly insignificant little pincushion projecting
a bare three inches above the barren soil in the dry unfertile regions of
Mexico south of the Rio Grande. The plant is a humble cactus,
Lopophora Wiliamsii, by name. This drug is one of the strangest in
the pharmacologist's collection. A powerful hallucinogen, producing
extraordinary visions in the user, it was first used by the Aztecs or pre-
Aztecs and called peyotl. This ancient civilization believed that a deity
dwelt in the cactus and that those who devoured its flesh would behold
the world ofthe gods.
By the time the Spaniards arrived in Mexico, the Aztecs were
worshipping peyotl as a veritable divine substance, the "flesh of the gods",
and, of course, the Spanish priests had their own ideas on the subject of
God's flesh and had no intention of tolerating any rival claims to that
dignity. They promptly dubbed the peyotl "raiz ciabolica'" and perse-
cuted all those who used it. without bothering to investigate the nature
or its properties. Since then considerable efforts have been made to
prove that peyotl was harmful but there is no evidence whatever that
peyotl is associated with debauchery, Aldous Huxley believed that as a
euphoriant, peyotl or mescaline is unlikely to replace alcohol "though its
effects are infinitely more interesting and it does not drive the taker into
the kind of uninhibited action which results in brawls, crimes of voilence
and traffic accidents" (Huxley). It has no addiction-forming properties.
Indians who have consumed it for years still manage perfectly well
without the drug. It seems to have no lasting ill effect on any organ in
the body, including the liver on which falls the task of detoxifying this
particular poison, for mescaline is poisonous, albeit the effects are interest-
ing and the toxic symptoms rarely alarming. It belongs to the class of
poisons which the great toxicologist, Lewin, labeled phantastica, a class
of materials now more commonly referred to as hallucinogens.
So such for mescaline or its old-world name peyotl; but earlier this
year a group of doctors and scientists at Harvard University studying the
effects of the drug were asked to discontinue their use of it on humans.
When they did not, the operating fu nd s w ere withdrawn
and they were asked to leave. Thty, we are told, moved
tt.eir laboratory to Mexico and recently bhe Mexicin government also
asked then to leave. Then, with or without Dominica's first deportee's
aid and assistance, (the facts have never been officially stated), these Mes-
caline admirers sought establishment here on Dominica. We are told
thirteen arrived, fifty more were soon to follow, a total of two-hundred
would be here within a few months! Whew! Who needs this
Yes, the story traveling across the world today is a good one for
Dominica. Burdened with illiteracy, mounting expenses and more or less
intractable mountains, Dominica is not insensible to rtght and wrong and
is striving mightily and well to lift itself even ever higher for the good and
well-being of its people, and the world. So they say!
Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Girls & Boys,
-- -This week wc have its rw- heb -se datt s d a ennhe
University of the West Indles in Jamaica. They have come to familiarise
themselves with Dominica and its people and problems I guess and at the
same time they have been giving lectures.
At least this is one of the fruits of Federation. The gift of the Federal
ships from Canada has made travelling between the islands cheaper and
easier. We are getting to know each other better. I am sure they will
gain quite a lot of knowledge about Dominica and Dominicans from their
It is not uncommon when one travels to find out that few people
know of Dominica as an island but think we and the Dominican Republic
are one and the same place.
Jamaica, too, to us was like a foreign country. Our students who
travelled to Jamaica a few years ago, had the greatest difficulty in reach-
ing there, besides it was quite expensive travelling by plane which was
about the only way to reach there from either Antigua or Barbados. We
were like strangers to each other though we were all West Indians.
Our young people here must have noticed too among the students
quite a few girls. I was pleased to s ee that they could hold their own on
the platform. Among the'students from the Dept. of Agriculture from
Trinidad were also two girls.
There is a point I would like to make to our girls. As soon as
they leave school with a certificate- they bid goodbye to books and stu-
dies Our boys do make an attempt to improve themselves- they join
clubs, discuss both local and foreign affairs read and keep themselves abie.'st
of the times. But what a sid picture our girls. with few exceptions make in
a general discussions, even on current affairs. Men like to talk to intelli-
In Victorian times, a lady was an ornament in a man's home but to-
day she must be able to converse with him intelligently-she must be able
to hold her own when his male friends visit him. Men hate to talk
"shop" all the time.
I hope this is a hint to our girls. The idea of these student tours is a
very good one. We get to know each other better. In this way,
maybe the next Federation might have a better chance of success. Who
knows, maybe some day we might all join forces again in one big Federa-

It was agreed that there was
still an urgent unsatisfied
demand for bankable loans
for industrial and commer-
cial purposes at normal rates
of i interest. There was also
a demand for loans at low
interest fcr long periods for
i n f r a-structural projects,
urgently required by many
of the smaller and less deve-
loped countries in the area.
Emphasis was again laid
upon the need for the bank-
ing institution to provide
technical and administrative
assistance to countries re-
quiring such help.
The Committee therefore
recommended t h a t the
Secretary-General of the

secure, through a technical
assistance project, the neces

onal bases for the establish-

Bank in the Caribbean area,
expressing the hope that the
results of such a survey be
presented to the Caribbean
Council at its Fourth Meet-
ing in September 1963.
The Committee further
recommended t h a t the
Caribbean Council should
support the establishment of
a private investment com-

and commercial projects,
