Martinique Welcome Marvellous
WHILE H. M. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's
presence was causing gratification to Dominicans last
Sunday, on a similarly dry and peerless day in the i eight,
bouring island of Martinique, France's greatest survivor cf
World War II arrived on foot at the Savannah to be wel,
corned by tumultuous cries of "Vive de Gaulle !" There
were 60,000 people waiting.

Martinique's welcome for e

PHAL TOUR

Fauna Flora Sur-
vey Of Dominica
Bredin-Archbold Project
In January, the Smithsohian
Instctution of Washington, D. C.,
U.S.A., initiated a three year study
of the flora and fauna of Dominica.
Because of the extensive forests maat
still cover much of the Island, the
scientiLts at the Smithsonian consider
the current survey of animal and
plant life here both timely and im,
portant timely because the forest
lands are fist g.virg way to the in-
roads of the saw and agriculture,
important because a record of the
original life on Dominica should be
preserved for posterity. Further-
mort, a knowledge of-what was
here when man first arrivedwill be
essential to our understanding of the
prehistorical invasions of the Island
by both plants and animals.
The Survey, which is to extend
over a period of three years, will in-
volve the participation of some 5o
scientists from the Smithsonian and


"Otfer institutions oit earnig in the
United States. Presently, there are
four specialists working on the Is,
land: Dr. D. F. Bray, Professor
of Entomology, University of' Dela
ware, is studying certain groups of
insects; Dr. H. H. Hobbs, Jr, Dr.
H. E. Robinson, and Dr. R. L.
Zusi, all from the Smithsonian, are
making observations on the fresh,
water shrimps and crabs, the lower
plains (liverworts and mosses), and
the birds, respectively. Accomn
paying them is Dr. Hobbs' son, a
student at the University of Rich-
mond, who is interested in the na-
tive mammals.
In April, the present group will
be replaced in the survey by four
members of the staffof the Smith,
sonian, two of whom will remain
through the month of April and
two who will be here until they are
replaced in July. 'Iheir interests
are in echinoderms, insects, and fo-,
wering plants.
Headquarters for the Survey, de-
si g n a t e d the Bredin-Archbold-
Smithsonian Biological Survey of
Dominica, are at Clarke Hall.
Partial support for the project has
been provided by Mr, Bruce Bredin
of Wilmington, Delaware, and Mr.
John E Archbold of Springfield,
Dominica, and Upperville, Virginia.

A Bridge Between All Faiths
Bishop Speaks At W. H. S.
HISTORY WAS made in Rose;iu on Tuesday night,
March 24th, when the Roman Catholic Bishop of
Roseau, His Lordship Bishop Boghaert, C. Ss. R. gave a
talk in the Assembly Hall of the Wesley High School on
religious matters, accompanied or the platform by the
Methodist Sup-rintendent Rev. F. A. Roberts, and the
Head of the Anglican Church in Dominica, Canon Lane.


It was a far cry from the
.'religious riots" in Domin.
ica of October i8th 1847 !!
Speaking on his two Ecu-
menical Council visits to
Rome in. 1962 and 1963,
Bishop Boghaert said "Christ
himself wants the reun on
of all Christians and it is up
to us to work to that end".
Despite the rain, a consi-
derable crowd of Protestants
attended the meeting which
was 'opened by the singing of
the hymn "Christ from
whom all blessings flow"

by Canon Lane.

Letter From John Wesley
Bishop Boghaert referred
at the start of his address to
a letter written to the then
Pope by the founder of the
Methodist C h u r ch, Rev.
John Wesley, pleading reli-
gious tolerance. "The
whole world," said the Bis,
hop of Rcseau, "has been
following the deliberations of
the Ecumenical Council pre,
sided over by Pope John
XXIII and later Pope Paul
VI". He referred to the
twenty Ecumenical Councils
held previously and g a v e
many statistics of the num-
ber of prelates attending this
last Council, including 76
non/Catholics. His tal k
was illustrated with slides,
some of which portrayed the
strangely bearded and garbed
patriarchs of branches of the
Christian Church, such as
the Ethiopian, Greek and
Russian Orthodox Churches.
"The Individual Soul"
The distinguished speaker touched
on various aspects of the 70 items
on the agenda of the last Council,
particularly on changes in the litur-
gy and the optional use of the vern-
acular (local language) instead of
Latin for those parts of the service in


which the congregation participated:
the attitude of the Church to the
Jews was also discussed, and the
position of womep.
Listening Methodists werein ag-
reement with the Bishop's statement
,tat "i: was the business of the min
dividual soul to find' 'his own way
t3 God"-this stress on the indivi-
dual having been long a theologi-
cal doctrine of the followers of John
Wesley.
Miss M. Beswick, B.A.,.Head-
mistress of !he Wesley High School
gave the vote of thanks fbr a most
heartwarming evening, .whichi de-
monatrated superlatively that reli-
gious toleraAce and the drawing to-
gether of Christians "everywhi?- i.S'


coming to pass.

Mayor Ignored
N ORDER to disabuse the minds of
the citizens of'Roseau and also to
avoid further queries of me, I wish
to inform the general public that the
Mayor of Roseau was not invited to
meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
The Queen Mother at the p a rt y
convened for that purpose at
Government House on Sunday 22nd
March, 1964.

Her Majesty Queen Eliza/

the following telegram on
Monday:-
"His Honour Lieutenant
Colonel Alec Lovelace, Gov-
ernment House, DOMINICA.
I am so very pleased that
it was possible for me to pay
a brief visit to Dominica. I
have greatly enjoyed seeing
something of your beautiful
island and was greatly touch,

"SO THEY SA Y"--
BY BOQ& RAY

Did you ever notice the salesmen who visit Roseau in July selling
Christmas toys, cloth, bells and bows to the merchants? Fully six months
ahead of the actual season. Well, right now the Dominica Citrus As-
sociation should be out with a plan to sell theit oranges and grapefruit...
-even though they won't actually have fruit to ship until lte August or
September. It will be too, late to find the buyers when its packing time
and the lament will go out once more: "Oh, I wish I could sell my
oranges . its such a pity they must rot when they are such delicious
oranges and the whole world love nice juicy oranges ... "
Is there a man-with-aplan to market the 50,000 boxes of the
world's best grapefruit . and 5,000 boxes of better-than-average
oranges? Or is the real trouble in the old' fashioned idea that since we
have superior fruit the buyers will "beat a path to our door" . don't
we realize that old adage abour a "better mouse trap" is the bunk in
1964? And are we so utterly naive that we believe a shipping concern
that will carry our fruit to England is also going to go out of their way
to get us fair prices once the fruit is landed. Do the schooners that carry
our copra to Barbados fight,for a higher price for us after they get it there
Does L. Rose & Co. rely on the Harrison Line to sell their lime jui-e
once they have transported it overseas for then? Of course not!
We are no different than the thousands of other businesses : and the
one thing needed today for a successful operation is MARKETING
AND SALES. If the boys who catch the 'ti Ton off Scotts Head
just bring the fish ashore, the people would not have 'ti Ton! It takes
a small army offish mongers to carry the catch to the people and this is
ordinary marketing and selling! But the market for our excellent grape,
fruit is thousands of miles away .., we can't afford to send our able local
hucksters to the States and England to sell the fruit .. and if we could
we would be assured of good sales. What can we do, then? Is there
a man-witha-plan?

Bird Visits
Martinique
THE President of the A n,
tigua Trades and Labour
Union and Chief Minister
of the country, Mr. V. C.
Biri, visited Martinique.
He also said that other Minis,
ters of his Government shall
be visiting that country since
"the people of the West In-
dies are one." He said that
on his visit to the country he
met French investors who are
willing to invest in Antigua
but who wanted to know if
the Government would wel/
come French investors. Mr.
Bird said that he assured
them that French investors
will be given the same sup-
port and opportunities as are
extended to investors of other
nationalities. Mr. Bird re,
minded the people of Anti,
gua that whatever the coun,
try has achieved in terms of
economic and social develop,
ment was due to the support
and guidance of the Trade
Union Movement of the
country. The people as a
whole should therefore give
greater support to a move,
ment which has done so
much for the community.

There are many Dominicans who have
climbed aboard the good ship Colombie in
the dark of night to visit France, often
inspired by deep interest and curiosity; they
number far more than those who, at one-
tenth the cost and about onefiftieth of
travel time (ihilusive of the long drive to
out airport) have aerially crossed the sap,
phire Caribbean and touched down in a
tropical France next door where the cli,

the population would make any one of us

True, we Dominicans hive a little com,

hardly any informative or cultural links
with either four French-speaking neigh,
bours. This is quite fantastic in a
modern age when the cry is "one world."
Recently, however, a few things have
happened to break the ridiculous isolation.
One is the strengthening of the Caribbean
Organisation, which encompasses all the
main regional language groups. Another
is the mutual interest of both British and
French territories in technical developments
in agriculture. A third, and in the long
run the most important, is the increasing,
ly cordial attitude of the very young (both
French and British nationals) towards each
other. If youth was given more oppor,
tunity to become acquainted, ties of under,
standing and exchange of ideas would
rapidly develop. The Martinique Girl
Guides who greeted Lady Baden Powell
at Lamantin airport seemed every bit as
affectionate towards her as the Girl Guides
of Dominica. It was not by hazard that

Easter Conierence Of D.T.U,

be supported by the General Secte-
tary of the Caribbean Congress of

7,000 members, are sending delegates.
SProposals. put fortard b both
the Technical, Cle ical and Com-
mercial Woikers Union and the
Dominica Trade Union, for the for-
mation of a Trade Union Congress
in Dominica have been temporarily
shelved. One reason is that the
D.T.U. feel that their energies should
be spent more on an organisational
d:i/e, and the o0ter is a feeling that
the TCCWU would not accept
affiliation with the CCL
(a sine qua non for the DTU who
affiliate through CCL/ORIT to the
International Federat on of Free
Trade Unions: the TCCWU is
affiliated to the International Federa/

Cans Farmers Confer
With Distillers
A week ago the DTU executive
and the Cane Farmers Association
met representatives of the five rum
distilleries of Belfast, Macouchcrie,
Canefield, Chcckhall and Bagatelle
in an effort to agree upon a fixed
and equitable method of payment for
their product. Different conversions
to estimate the sugar content are used
by the different distilleries,
After a cordial discussion, with
Labour Commissioner Bruney in the
chair, it was agreed basically th: t juice
would be estimated on a basis or the
syrup at a figure of 40 Baum6 and
the price for that sugar content ag,
reed after consultations at a later date.
Representing the distilleries were
Mr. Newton Shillingford, Mr. E.
Nassief, Mr.. Fitz Shillingford and
Mr. Edward (A.C.) Shiliingford.
The Cane Farmers section of the
DTU were represented by Mr.
Philip Bob, Chairman, Mr. Roy
Laronde, Secretary and Messrs
Norry Vidal and Edward Sampson.
Interunion Struggle In B.G.
The end is not yet in sight in the
violent struggle between the two
unions representing the sugar work,
ers of British Guiana. The CCLo
affiliated Manpower Citizens
Association is being challenged by
the Jaganites who have formed the
British Guiana Sugar Producers'
Union. The latter have started
wildcat strikes all over the sugar


belt, with great violence and many
casualties, in an endeavour to show
that their union has the loyalty of
the majority of the workers rather
than the MPCA which is presently
recognized as the bargaining agent
with the employers.

a dispute caused by a resolution
drawnup- by. he Chairman Mr.
n 1 T-T Ri-r,-i. nnA h;mzrlf"


"That the Council in its infancy
could not do without a permanent
or stabled Secretary" seeing that
Mrs. V. Robin, Secretary of the
Council, had accepted the post of
Head Mistress of the Belles Govern-
ment School.
Mrs. Christian accused the
Chairman and Mr. Henry of hav,
ing taken the wrong procedure-to
which they agreed to a certain ex,
tent. Mr. Henry said that "Mr.
Christian in addressing the council
to the effect, exhibited some flat,
rared psychological stunts and thus
persuaded some of the members of
the council to side with him and
more so to oppose the resolution to
which the entire council strongly
agreed three weeks ago." Mr.
Henry openly accused the council
of bias and threat ied to resign.
He went on to say that had it not
been for the bias of the Councillors,
Mr. Christian would not have over,
ruled the resolution.
He also accused Mr. Christian for
not having, used his discretion--see,
ing that the Council is about to
undertake road construction etc the
Chairman-Secretary quorum will
occur most often then the Mrs.
Robir's resignation, to the Council
as Secretary, was not necessarily a
matter which should be based on
rules and regulations but on mutual
understanding.
When Mr. Christian was asked
"who will do the secretarial worle
of the Council during the Secre.
tary's absence since the Assistant
Secretary has refused to do it." He
replied "anyone at any meeting in
which the Secretary is absent can be
nominated to do the Secretarial
work".
Mr. Henry is strongly opposed to


this and so also is the chairman for
they both are conscious of the
fact that the members of
the Council cannot do the Secre-
tarial work.
This now leaves the council in a
stormy and rottering position. Mr.
Henry said that Mr.. Christian's
attitudes were not good and that
everything showed glaring preference
on behalf of the secrezarv but who
will do her work Then has the
council a, secretary.
He concluded 'I will remain on
the council until my time i, ended
to see if Mr. Christian will not
accept the resolution" THAT THE
COUNCIL IN ITS INFANCY CANNOT
DO WITHOUT A STABLED OR PER,
MANEIT SECRETARY."

DAWBINEY ON COMMERCIAL BANKS
BY
HERALD LITERARY CLUB REPORTER


THE tumultuous applause,
which followed his forty-
five minute talk exemplified
the fact that his 50-strong
audience were throughly con-
vinced t h at Commercial
Banks are fleecing and
capitalising reduudantly on
the underdeveloped countries,
w he n Mr. S. P. Richards,
University of the West Indies
graduate in Economics and
History addressed the Daw,
biney Literary Club on "The
Role of Commercial Banks
in Underdeveloped Coun,
tries", recently at the new
premises of the Dominica
Grammar School.
Profit Motive
"The principal Commer,/
cial Banks in underdeveloped
territories are usually branches
of expatriate banks (Barclays
and Royal in Dominica)
commanding hu g e inter,
national resources; and oper,
ating under a system as the
Currency Board system can
do almost anything to the


motive alone is- the factor
influencing the decision of a
Commercial Banking firm to
establish a branch in an


underdeveloped country (this
may come as a bit of a Qhock
regarding such immensely re/
spectabl' institutions)" he
said.
Enumerating the effects of
the operations of Commercial
Banks on underdeveloped
economics he stated that these
Banks operate as though the
countries are part of the
metropolitan area, they do rot
consider t he territories as
separate entities. As a re,
sult the policy of these ex/;
patriate banks is det'erimnined
by Head Offices primarily.
with regard to monetary ni6 n
editions prevailing in -the
country with the Head Office
and ignoring the needs of the
poor countries. The local.
rate of interest in the territory
is a function- of the rate of
interest in the overseas money
markets rather" than a. result
of internal economic foices-
Similkrly, the total volut me -qf
business undertaken in any
country is determined by de/
cisions in its head office -aid

nection with demand for
credit, or the state of output
and employment in the over/
seas territory.

PAGE EIGHT DOMINICA HERALD


Dominica At Her Best
Queen Mother Ashore Twice
Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother was so enchanted
by her swift glimpse of Dominica at midday on Sunday
that she took a trip up to Pont Cass6e in the late afternoon.
After a number of broadcast statements that it was
not known whether Her Majesty would be coming ashore,
and warning everyone to stand by their radios for news at
I.o pm, in actuality the Queen Mother stepped ashore on
the Roscau jetty at exactly 12.30 p.m. on Sunday.
Persons up Federation Driie had a magnificent view
of the Brittania steaming into Woodbridge Bay at around
II.30, and soon after this H. H. The Administrator Col,
Alec Lovelace and Mrs Lovelace went on board.
Met Ministers
When Her Majesty stepped ashcre an hour later, three
cheers were raised by the Canadian Teacher Trainer group,
she met Ministers Stevens and Didier, and cameras were
active all around. Looking considerably less than her 62
years the Queen Mother went straight into the waiting car
and was driven off for a quick run past the Court House,
through the Gardens, round the parking space of the new
Grammar School, thence up the steep St. Aroment Hill
and down to the P. M. Hospital where the entourage
paused for a brief minute before going down to Govern,
ment House.
At G. H there were introductions to Mr. Justice St.
Bernard, The Right Rev. Arnold Boghaert, Bishop of
Roseau, and other notables. Exactly seventy minutes later,
Her Majesty was again aboard the Royal Barge heading for
tbh Royal Yacht Brittania. Col. and Mrs. Lovelace accom,
panied ftefor lunch on board.
ThIeQuten Mother looked charming in a white
bouffon frock and typical Hartnelldesigned white/feathered
hat. Her two ladies/in/waiting wore similar hats.
Trip To Pont Gassee


Her afternoon trip started just before five o'clock and
consisted of a tour in peerless weather up the Layou Park
Road to the Administrators Cottage down the Castle
Bruce Road and back via the twisting Imperial Road as
dusk fell. Her Majesty's trip was blessed with blue skies,
cloudless views of the mountains and a magnificent sunset
(we hope she saw the wonderful emerald drop). She did
notleave the jetty to return to the Britania until after 8.00
but a magnificant half-moon illuminated everything and we
can surely say that Dominica offered her the best of her
beauty.H.M. received presents of grapefruit, limes and a
grass mat.
,Dominicans from the North saw the Royal Yacht in
the morning when she steamed slowly through Prince
Rupert's Bay on her way South to Roseau.

Marketing Information
Concern was felt about
the possibility of m a r k e t

felt for better information and
statistical analyses of market
trends, improved advertising,
and the general collection,
collation and dissemination
of information from the
soil to the consumer and


from the mat to the shop
counter.
The Industry In Martinique
An intrr-sing document,
in French, was distributed
during the Guadeloupe
Study Tour giving some de,
tails of the progress of the
industry in Martinique. Un-
like Guadeloupe, in which
everyone emplovs his own
shipping agenr, Martinique
has been organised in much
the same way as the Wind,
ward Islands in that the
growers unified in August
1962 to form "La Soci&t
d'Interet Collecr.if Agricole
Bananiere de la Martinique"
known as SICABAM.
As a result the growers
were able to ob-aii- an over,
all freight contract resulting
in considerable reduction in
costs, a proper control of cut,
ting to suit ripening (cutting
out almost entirely rejects of
unsatisfactory f uit) and a
means whereby unacceptable
fruit is considered by an offi/
cial control commission.
Stabilization Fund
SICABAM have been
able to obtairi fixed quotas
for the Fre:cl i market and
organised a "compensatory
reserve" based on a cess on.
bananas seit to metropolitan
z 67T - t i./ --, :A6]-


to stabilize the standard of
living of the farmers and
guard against fluctuations in
foreign prices.
Exports have been de,
veloped to Italy, Switzerland,
Ireland and the U.K. since
1962 but especially to the
U.S.A. where the more un,
certain market is compensated
for by the U.S. demand for
a better quality (and higher
priced) fruit. Great stress is
now being placed through,
out Martinique on quality
and conditioning. SICA-
BAM is planning:an ex,
pending production with the
U.S. able to absorb the extra
tonnage -- a target of 25o,
ooo metric tons per annum
is aimed at.
More Sales By "Hands"
It is noticeable that crating
and cartoning of "hands" is
becoming an increasingre,
quirement, especially for the
U.S. and Swiss market (and
even in France itself). For
nine months of 1963, about
30% of production was
plain wrapped stems, 30%
diothene stems, 20% in wood
crates and 20% in cartons.
The article goes on to
state that the combined pro-
duction of Martinique and
Guadeloupe now r an ks


fourth in the world. De- thanks to purchases by
spite the three hurricanes last SICA BAM from their Afri-
year, they were able to meet can colleagues in Ivory Coast
their contract requirements and Cameroon.

Blackburn Thrash St. Joseph


THE Blackburn vs St. Joseph en-
c o a n t e r last weekend at the
Botanical Gardens was almost a one,
sided affair. Win n n n g the toss
Blackburn amassed 214 runs in just
over 2- hrs against bowling which
never looked very penetrative. Ron-
aid Osborne topped the batting con-
tributions with a well played 49, in
an innings which showed plenty
character and good timing. Einstein
Shillingford and Eddison Joseph got
37 apiece and the middle and lower
order batsmen gave worthy support
with timely contributions to tne effect
that the batting side never looked in
serioaz trotb!e.
Clayton R, Shillingford varied
pace and spin extremely cleverly to
finish with a full bag of 7 for 72.
St. Joseph went in to bat about 45
mit.utes before close of play and the
openers settled very cicely. But that
was while Nesty was erratic. As
soon as he found a length they were
in serious trouble. A parade of
batsmen in and out of the pavilion
ensued and by 6 o'clock 8 wickets
had fallen for a paltry 41 runs. On
resumption Clayton Shillingford
