THE news that the Council of the
Windward Islands Broadcasting Ser,
vice have been taking a long, hard look
at the economics of the Service and have
decided that the four territories should no
longer carry the "recurrent finar.cial
burdens" of this public service is not sur,

ment of their intention to set up "before,
the end of 1965 a Statutory Corporation
along commercial lines to include corn,
.mercial advertising" needs a great deal
more amplification before it can be accept,
ed by the general public.
Radio is second only to television as the
most powerful mass medium for infuenc,
ing, informing and educating for good or
bad the wold has ever known. Recent
directives i ss ue d to the programme
director ofWIBS to ensure that no ad,
verse criticism^f indcumfnr- U1ra-1t eH
are broadcast, shows that the Chief
Ministers of the Windward Islands are
well aware of this. Some blame for the
failure of the West Indian Federation can
be attributed to the small amount of
money spent by the late Federal Govern-
ment on its Informnation Service and the
small amount of time allowed by WIBS
to enhance the West Indian Image (in
contrast to the time devoted to publicising
parochial island nationalism.)
Non-commercial broadcasting, like
education, does not show profits that can
be measured in dollars and cents. If
there are benefits to the people they are
intangible. In these islands where (so
far) most of the textbooks in our schools
are not regionally orientated but refer to
things, places, animals, flowers and social
conditions outside Caribbean experience,

the immediate use of the W7BS network
for schools broadcasts (and the techniques
are readily available) would build up a
national spirit and also alleviate the short,
age of experienced teachers in both prim/
ary and secondary schools.
Do not infer from this that we are
averse to the introduction of commercial
broadcasting, Properly regulated, this
can be a most satisfactory way of aug,
meeting the income and covering the
expenses cf staffing and maintenance of a
radio network. We suggest that regula-
tion can best be done by an impartial
outside body modelled on the lines of the
British Television Authority which, work,
ing as an independent guardian of the
public\interest, ensures that the rules laid
down by legislation are adhered to: for
example, limitation ef number and dura,
tion of advertising "spots" and the require,
ment that news items be objective and

the advertisers will show some good taste
in their choice of programmes, using local
talent whenever possible.
We feel, therefore, that the proportion
of time devoted to news, sport, education,
entertainment and advertising should' be
laid down and incorporated in the legisla,
tion required to set up the statutory body
envisaged.in the Government release issued
last week.
One thing is essential: that all the pro-
posals should be set out in a White Paper
well beforehand to encourage the greatest
amount of public discussion and comment.
Lastly, in view of the ta-get date fixed
- "the end of 1965" we fervently
hope that the legislation setting up the
"Windward Islands Broadcasting Corpo/
ration" will be a federal law, applicable
to all the islands concerned.

N view of complaints received recently
from a few growers of the "flare-up"
of L-'f Soot on their cultivations all
made at a late stage of infection-growers
are reminded that there is in existence
since April 1962, a carefully worked out
system for them to channel their com-
plaints to the Association's Executive
Officers through their District Branches.
it is unfortunate that growers have
completely neglected the use of this sys-
tem. The Inspectors have very wide dis-
tricts to cover and growers are expected,
in their own interests and that of the in-
dustry generally, to co-operate with the
inspectors by notifying them as soon as
the first signs of a "flare-up" appear.
Like every other disease, Leaf Spot is
most effectively treated in the early stage
when the first spots appear.
If the grower is dissatisfied in anyway
with the treatment or lack of treatment
given his bananas, he should take action
promptlyas requested in the notice re-
published below.


(First published 2nd April, 1962).
To enable the Executive Officers
of the Association to deal more effectively,
with growers' complaints regarding Leaf
Spot Control, the following procedure has
been approved by the Board of Manage-
ment and becomes effective from 15th
April, 1962:
(i) Any grower who is dissatisfied, in
any way, with the control mea-
sures applied to his cultivation, or
the lack of such measures, wi 1
first make complaint to the Chief
Leaf Spot Inspector of -nis District.
(ii) After a reasonable period of time,
if the grower remains dissatisfied
with the treatment given his cul-
tivation, he will report his com-
plaint to the Secretary of his Dis-
trict Branch.
(iii) The Branch Secretary'will com-
municate this complaint to the
Banana Disease!Officer, in writing.
At the end of every month he will
send a detailed return of such
complaints to the General Mana-
(iv) If, after the above action, the
grower is still dissatisfied, he will
inform the Branch Secretary who
will investigate the complaint and,
if he considers it necessary, report
to the General Manager directly
on the matter.
(v)) The General Manager will then
enquire into the case, personally,
and inform the Branch Secretary
of his decision.

The Role Of An Opposition In A Democracy
Most of us seem :o bave the wrong concept of the part that the op-
position ought to play in the state. It is entirely impossible to expect every
citizen of the state to agree with the policy of its government since every
individual or section of the community does not benefit directly from certain
aspects of the policy of the government. Around this nucleus an opposi-
tion begins to hatch. For iften we believe that the duty of the opposition
is to oppose for opposing sake or in other words to act as a barrier in the
way of the Volicy of the gover.mert. Aid it is at this point I make it try
duty to enlighten my country that the responsibility of the opposition is to
assist or rather to be a rudder in the ship of Government in stabilising the
political and economic well-being of the state.
It may be well and good for an opposition to criticise Government's
policy on a particular issue but the other question is what solution has th-
opposition to solve the problem. An opposition which is not prepared to
submit alternative plans for development and in whose policy can be clear-
ly seen the aims and attitudes for self-aggrandistment can be termed a
destructive opposition and a people should be careful in deciding on such
an opposition in following its next government.
I would like to go further to emphasise that an opposition desirous of
forming a Govt. must not deny its country of its viewpoints on matters per-
taining to development; for it is necessary for the electorate to have a know-
ledge of its policy before a general election campaign, and it is only then
that a peoFle should give consideration to its philosophy of thought. For
the law of retribution condemns destructive criticisms.
To Star Lestrade
I would like to make it universally known that Mr. W.S. Stevens has
no hand whatsoever in the articles that I write and that I am fully capable
of voicing my opinion in a democracy in any part of the Commonweatlh
without his assistance. That he has sent me to school was the greatest gift
that he has bestowed unto me, and t h at my environment as a boy was
responsible for what I am. I cannot imagine myself after my association
w.th high standards of political literature such as written by Harold Laski,
Michael Stewzrt M.A. M.P. and others to give way to political mud-sling-
ing such as at the level of Mr. Star Lestrade and colleagues which evidently
is their highest standard attained for my school of thought does not permit
me to indulge in such low practices.
In future I shall ref-ain from cutting short my series on political educa-
tion to reply to those who fail to come with me in the highways of logic
and sequence of thought.

THUNDERBIRDS as a result of
their 2--1 win over Spartans
on Sunday are clear leaders in Div I
and have maintained an unbeaten
record this season. Zhunderbirds
play a pretty quick game and this is
often an advantage, but Spartans al-
lowed too many of their chances to
go ahegging, especially in the second
hJfwhen they had the leaders in the
run and under a lot of pressure.
Pinard. as good an opportunist as
you cou'd wish, opened the account
for Thunderbirds on or about the
Iith minute of play. Viry soon,
however, the equaliser came, as Lio-
nel 6mith booted i. a very low drive
in the corner of the lft upright.
From then onwards, the boys in blue
and yellow looked the more danger-
ous, but the Birds raided with fine
gusto when opportunity knocked,
Half way in the second half Baron

lead. This goal was quite against the
run of play, but it was a real beauty,
and so it ended 2-1.
