U. S. Doctor Meets Mental Health Barbados Band
Association Steals The Show
Much Impressed By Our Attitude At Edinburgh
E iA gikI
The Dominica Mental Health Association, at its
meeting on Thursday last week, heard some very interesting
comments about our Men:al Hospital from Dr. Steinmuller
and agreed to pass on some of his suggestions to the Medi/
Commenting upon conditions at the Mental Hospiral
he stated that he was much impressed with the up-todate
attitude f the authorities here, which compared very
favourably with many publicly-maintained similar hospitals
irn the U. S. A. The devotion and keenness of the staff,
the comparative freedom of the patients and the fact that the
hospital was administered by the medical department test,
filed to the forwardness of public opinion and the work of
the M. H. A. in Dominica.
He was appalled at the "atrocious condition of the
physical plart" useless c oking facilities and lack of
paint, for instance ~nd his wife had already made a
start to encourage forms of occupational therapy. Patients
who had been sitting around like "zombies" became eagerly
interested when Mrs. Steinmuller showed them how to
mike decorative plaques with plaster, shells, twigs arid
postcard views of Dominica. The Doctor thought that
the patients would be much helped by a programme .f
"make-it-yourselt" in which they could sew their own
clothes, fabricate sandals and stuff mattresses.
Just Another Illness
Dr. Steinmuller had a special interest in drawing the
General Hospitals and unspecialised medical practitioners
into the Mental Health field, since many mild cases of
mental illness could be treated in the early stages in clinics
and remedication and thought that this could be made the
responsibility of the local clinics and doctors. Following
his comment the Committee agreed to suggest to the medi
cal authorities that an official procedure be adopted for
notifying local clinics and doctors on the discharge of a
mental patient, giving details of future treatment that might
Mental Hospital Administration
The doctor also stated that there was the need for a
single co-ordinating administrative officer. To this end
the Committee, after a brisk discussion agreed upon a
resolution that government and Mental Health Association
appoint a small "Board of Management" jointly and from
their number, one member be appointed as an executive
Officer with noi-medical administrative responsibility on a
dollar-ayear basis. The appointment should be made by
government and approved by the Association.

WEST INDIAN BOOKS
THE recent announcement by the Uni-
S versity o' the West Indies of their
immediate intention to produce text books
for use in primary schools mus: surely be
appreciated as a very definite step forward
in West Indian education.
Of course, this effort (like the buylocal
drives) represents a profound change in
West Indian mentality. For the first uti.e,
the major West Indian educational body
will produce books for use by West In,
dians. The country has taken ovr the
reins and begun to think for itself.
The "Mighty Sparrow", Trinidad's
famous calypsonian, hit a very neat note
with his satyrical calypso "Dan is the Man
in the Van." After all, it is high time
that local schoolbooks came do-wn to
earth --or at least down to th- children!
It is time that oaks become mangoes and
continents islands; time that cur young
school students studied themselves a little
more closely before turnir g to the Cliffs
We cannot help speculating on the
fate of England if instead of first learning
about the fcgs of Winter and the wheat
of the Essex plains, her young children
studied all about life in the tropics and
The very idea is absurd; a child is at-
tracted to knowledge, not by the realisition
that the material put before it is sound
but by recognizing in that knowledge
something that is familia'--something chat
rings a bell.
In this light, it was quite surprising to
learn that certain areas of the island, plans
are still under way to order more English
We hope ihe Education Department
has noted that the body best fi:ted to
,lo so, our own University of the West
Indies, is producing these W.I. books.
As a professor at U.W.I. said some
time ago, "Colonialism may be a dead
force politically, but it is very much alive
culturally." Let us not be stopped by
any deep feelings of inferiority from utilis,
ing to the fullest our own inheri':ance.

Frankly, I don't like the
using of the word here, for
the reason that the verb to
instigate with its noun insti,

bad sense, in which I have
always so regarded it.

8.30 a.m. thia Sunday a formal visit was paid to the
Chiet warm welcome. He gave the boys the first meal
of the day coffee and Mrs. Francis' "delicacies" which
the boys appreciated very much. The old father of the
Chief kissed our boys kindly before they left, and we
were ve;y moved.
At 9.30 the long day began: to walk and to walk

praise of the quality of the lectures
"This evaluation which I have
just referred to is the most impor,
tant part of any Seminar, for the
simple reason that it provides us
with a certain amount of guidance
for improving future Seminars.
For instance one lecturer felt that
there should have been a few lectur-
ers outside of the organisation and
that a lecturer should not be required
to speak too often. Other students
gave their impressions commenting
on the lectures, the approach of the
lecturers, the manner in which the
seminar was condaced on the
whole and expressed their thanks to
those who had contributed to their
well-spent two days. These criti-
cisms will without doubt serve as
useful guide-posts for future semi-

Dominica Banana Growers Association
Fertiliser. Credit Scheme
The Board of Management has approved of the re,

pended after the hurricanes.
--Applicaioon-orms ean be obtained from fth c-Asocaia
tion's Offices i Roseau and Portsmouth and frm the Dis-
trict Branch Secretaries.
The amount of credit granted for any holding depends
on the ability of the owner to repay his loan from the
banana sales from such holding within 12 months. There,
fore, it will save time in processing applications if appli,
cants for fertilizer credit will forward their sales dockets (or
sales "slips") for the previous two months along with their
applications to this office.
Growers are reminded of the conditions governing
fertilizer credits as follows:--
I. The limit of credit to each grower shall not ex,
ceed $500 irrespective of the number of holdings
cr estates such grower may possess.
2. Fertilisers sold on credit shall bear a service charge
of 45 cents per bag of 112 lbs.
3. A down payment of 20% hall be made in re,
spect of each credit sale.
4. There shall be no further credit issue to any
grower unless he had reduced his current indebted,
ness by at least 75 %.
5. Repayments shall be in the form of deductions
from the banana sales of the debtor grower at.the
time he receives payment and shall be at the rate
of I cent per lb. of bananas sold.
6. Any debtor grower who attempts to evade repay,
ment of his debt by selling his bananas under the
name of another grower or under an assumed
name shall be prosecuted under Section o2 (4) of
the Banana Ordinance x959.
7. All debtors in respect of the former Fertiliser
Credit Scheme (in operation before 1963) shall be
excluded from the present Scheme until they have
settled their indebtedness.
