THE Secretary of State for the Colonies has been pleased
Ito approve the continuation of the DOMINICA
CITRUS DEVELOPMENT PLAN for a further period
of one year, ending 3 st March, 1965. This scheme re-
places the old one which commenced in 1962 and closed
on 3Ist March, 1964.
A grant of 5,1i19 has been made available for the
operation of the scheme. One important change is that
25% of the landed cost of the fertilizers will be met by
those farmers who wish to participate. All payment for
fertilizers must be made i- advance of delivery.
All those farmers who intend to participate in this
new scheme are requested to advise the Agricultural Super-
intenient of their intention in writing. In so doing they
must indicate that they will meet promptly the cost of ferti-
lizers, as stipulated.
Registration of citrus growers which was carried out
over the duration of the former scheme will be valid for
this continuation seheme. However, those farmers who
wish to include additional areas for benefit under the new
scheme will need to revise and renew their registration.
Appropriate forms are available at the Agricultural D:part,

The Federation of the Ten West Indian Islands is
"dead" alright, but it is my sincere belief that the two
largest islands of the West Indies are not coordinating
t ,wards the right perspective for our area as a whole.
The entire world today is looking at Trnidad &
Tobago and Jamaica as the West Indian mind and
thought. Being independent these two islands at the
extreme end oF the West Indies must protect t-e eight small
islands regardless of their political status.
Inde tendence or no independence, a house divided
against itself cannot stand. At .every conference (partcu
larly in the U. K.) these two West Indian Nations should
debate the future of the smaller island. We mu:t federate,
in some sort ofa way, at some time. We must learn that
the world accepts us as 'West Indians' first and Trinida,

To create a brighter West Indian front the two larger
Islands should intercede for the "Seven" by recommending
'strongly to the U. K. Government a proper Federation,

unity between the Independents and the smaller islands
can be accomplished. As it is now it is survival for
the fittest, and according to the Mighty Sparrow "Dog

the foolish recriminations between these two senior West

sort of thing which independence brings? Lastly came
the incongruous decision by the West indian political
Giants to abandon the Federal Maple and Palm for smaller

Perhaps these West Indian Astronauts need a sea

When I interviewed Dr. Carleen O'Loughlin, (Head of
the Eastern Branch of the Institute of Social and Economi/

along with Mr. E. Collins (a Canadian Government Cost
Accountant with 20 years experience in shipping) during
their eco.,omic survey of these two ships I was convinced
(although they never revealed their decisions to me) that the
Federal ships were heke to stay.
The West Indies is the only Government Institution
in shipping in the world without a full time economist.
Surely shipping companies all over the world lose money,
but trade is the deciding factor where shipping is con-
cerned. Jamaicans might no: be interested in travel to the

FREE ENTERPRISE AND
By Herald Literary Club Reporter
ON Tuesday last the Dawbiney Literary Club was
Addressed by Mr. Frank Waty B.Sc. (Econ.) Lond.-
U. W. I. on "The Free Enterpris,: System and Develop,
After expressing his joy at being back home, the
speaker exhorted the club to heed the needs of the Island,
"To honour with sinceri:y the social responsibilities" and
amend its composition and methods "intelligently and out
of a keen sense of purpose."
It was his intention, the speaker said, to ignore where
possible the political implications of the Free Enterprise
System, but rather attempt to outline the theoretical justifi,
cation of the system, to show its historical development,
and by pointing to the anomalies of th system to demon-
strate forms in which it inhibits the developmental process
in backward countries.
Every economic system (the speaker went on to say)
must meet the functions of production, providing means of
sharing the national product and regulating the ccnsump,
iion of goods. He pointed briefly to ways in which other
systems met these prerequisites. e.g. the autonomous family,
communist societies, economic despotisms, traditional
The free enterprise system he defined as "An econo,,
mic arrangement wherein the individual was free, subject
to minimum restrictions to choose h;s occupation or form
of product, to bargain terms of exchange, to seek his pur,
chasers etc., was both inequitable as well as paid scant
attention to the ,,cial needs of all citizens. Supporters of
the system rele to Government a passive role centered
mainly arou gaining Law and Order and regulating
anda en Krcing commercial- agrutcHE.-F F-- -.
The smooth operation of the system was based on the
workings of the competive market through the Pricing
Excess supply would reduce prices and so discourage
over-production. In the next period, similarly, undcr-
production (given unsatisfied effective demand) would en/
courage increased supply in the future. The observations
were apparent.; -ssential goods like medicines or services like
education would' no longer be left to the regulations of
of prices. Those who needed them most the poor -
could least afford them if prices were higher. It was point,
ed out that the individual's share of the national product
depended as much on the level of prices as on his industry.
Those nearest subsistence level could ill-afford reduction in
price levels. For these traditional Free Enterpnce offered
no consideration. Similarly in the case of scarce goods
the poor were the first to suffer from restrictions from the
point of view of satisfactions.>
In the developing countries, the economics tend to be
dominated by expatriate firms operating at considerable
financial remuneration. These giant enterprises tended to
be price makers i.e., instead of being subject to the market,
by virtue of their size, resources and power they influenced
the market. In conclusion he made the following points:
The assumption that buyer and sellers will be able to
agree to an equitable condition is seldom real;sed. Absence
of efficient organizations restricts inter-communication of
information important to establishing a competitive
2. Predominance of giant enterprises verging on monopolies able to
uudercut competition often results in the imposition of onerous conditions
of employment or trading on those with whom they trade.
3. In view of the high cost of investment in the economy, government
cannot maintain a passive role. Incentives ranging from extensive infia-
structures to actual production is not infrequent. Since profitability (the
inducement to free enterprise) may not exist in areas where considerable
social needs exist.
4. Modern sales techniques have reduced the independence of buyers.
That people are always the best judges of their own needs is no longer
true. Citizens in developed and (more so) developing societies need direc-
t.on and control in making their choice.
5. Developing countries are usually agricultural countries so that

government's regulation of production figures is often necessary since, in
the absence of guaranteed markets, farm overproduction results in adverse
6. The development of economic pockets of power often fails to be
counterbalanced by strong opposites: this is an infringement on Galbraith's
"coutervailing power" theory in which he considers the safeguard of the
free enterprise theory.

OCTOBER 17, 1964
DURING the last days of the big politi-
cal battle in Britain, the Labour Party
was under heavy fire because its schemes
for the relief and advancement of the Btit,
ish people would cost (it was alleged)
millions of pounds more than those of the
Conservative budget. Mr. Wilson chal,
lenged the Tory statistics and further
replied that increased production under
his regime w-uld amply cover improved
social security and other measures with,
out heavier taxation.
No government should dare to call
itself Labour unless it puts social security
well in the forefront of national planning.

Labour's Choice For Prime Minister
Some Notes On Harold Wilson
Harold Wilson was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire,
in 1916, son of an teacher. That was a year of floods and
hurricanes in Dominica. His father saved enough money
by thrift to send Harold (aged 10) and his mother to Aus-
traia for six months; Mrs. Ethel Wilson's brother had
become n Australian M. P., and the boy saw the opening
of Parliament there. Two years later he wrote an essay
"Myself in 25 years' time" and imagined himself as
Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Scouts and Guides will be pleased to know that Ha,
rold became a cub before he was eight, and later a King's
Scout; his father was a Rover Leader and his mother was a
Guide Captain, while his sister was a Guide Patrol Leader.

N view of complaints received recently
from a few growers of the "flare-up"
of Leaf Spot 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 wid 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
promptly as requested in the notice re-
(First published 2nd April, 1962).

Know Your Island--
THERE are few questions that one
can ask any native Dominican
;.bout his island which he will not
a-swer with perfect tr'th: "I do nct
Th: thought occurs that it is per-
haps that not so much no curiosity
or general intelligence as that nobody
has even tried to teach him, tell him
anything about it as opposed to any
other place; for those who live in the
country parts of this island often
know a great deal about the things
which most concern them. Such
men make good g u i d e s, having
developed the faculties of noticing
small signs, they are capable of much
greater cultivation than those who
have lived in a town exclusively and
have grown accustomed to having all
their thinking done for them by oth,
ers. But i is not admirable to know
nothing simply because nobody else
has taught one. Man should grow
up thinking for himself and being
accustomed to ask questions which, if
he receives no answers, he should try
to answer better himself, for that is a
natural right, to seek out reasons, and
not believe the first superficial answer
suggested without further considera-
tion. Some, but not all men, are hers.
Freedom of every kind is the gift of
God and does not depend upon any
uther fellow-creature. Nobody who
ever lived was freer than Epectetus,
and he was a slave. But the com-,
mon slave ype is the one who is con,
tent to sit back-i a "e q-uite warisfilci'
to say, 'I don't have to do anything
in myfree time. If anybody wants
to tell me any thing, let him pay me
to listen"! Some years ago a fine
priest of Massacre named Fr. Bossuet,
by denying himself some small luxu-
ries and pleasures, saved enough mo-
ney to buy cricket bats and balls and
stumps for the boys of his parish.
He thought they would be pleased,
but even with a lifetime of experience
he found himself unready, when they
asked who was going to pay them
It is a fact thatthere are a great
many young people in Dominica
who grow up without knowing
how to do anything in particular,
certainly nothing well. They do not
keep pets, they da not collect stamps
or anything else, they do not make
their own t ys or, if they make any
attempt to do so they are well satis-,
fied to take the centre of a coconut
leaf for a bat, and a hard lime for a
ball. If you give them a ball, and
they lose it, they do not look for it,
but wait for somebody to give them
another. They do net know the
names of the mountains beneath
which they live, and not one in a
dozen has ever had the cnriosity to
climb one. They do not know their
rivers or what lives in them unless
they can eat it. They know nothing
about the signs of weather, and still
less do they know the animals and
birds they see every day, or where to
find their nests or how to recognize
a bird by the colour of its egg. Only
a few know how to catch, tame or
cook them. If they do, their one
idea is to get money by selling them,
which they spend at once on food,
drinks or the pictures. ., we should
all be very much ashamed.
Has nobody ever told them that
this is a very degrading state of affairs,
which separates them from the youth
of all civilized countries where young
people are expected to share the lives
of their parents, to work, to help, to
be brave and courteous, and to rec-
ognize that they owe a duty to those
who are less privileged than them-
sekes. This difference keeps them in
an inferior position which they re-
sa:n, but feel no obligation to dis-
There is nobody, however poor
and hard his lot who hTs much diffi-
culty in finding somebody who is
in greater need of help or comfort,
and it was for this that Lord Baden
Powell started the Boy Scout organ-
izatfon, with its ideal of doing at
least one person a good turn every
day. How many Scouts live up to
that fine ideal? We do not live up to
the best ideals we know, but it is
something to know what is right
and at least try to do our best to get a
little closer to it than the savage who
is concerned only with his own
self-preservation at any prices For
that is what it means to have an
ideal, and it is a privilege not denied
to the feeblest. (To be Continued)

Some Notes On Harold Wilson
Cont. from page 7
There is a picture of Harold as a little boy standing
outside No ro Downing street wearing short pants and a
large cloth cap. Twentyone years later, he made his first
speech from the Government front bench. (He was in
two Labour Cabinets between 1945-51).
In the meantime he had taken a first class in Philoso,
phy, Politics and Economics at Oxfrrd after winning a
history scholarship; he became lecture r at New College ani
Fellow of UiJversiiy College, and mnarned Mary his wife
in 1940. They have two sins, Robin (at Oxford) and
Cil-s, a schoolboy of is.
The Labour Party's choice for Prime Minister has
written a number of books, pamphlets and articles and has
travelled widely. Once, while on a trade talk in Moscow,
where he argued interminably with Mr. Mikoyar. an agree,

Mary Wilson says "it would be a complete waste of
time doing any fancy cookery for Harold." She complains
charmingly that he drowns out nice meat and fish with
too much sauce. His old father, now 81, and a lifelong
socialist, remarked: "Harold gets his personal qualities from
his mother. Blame me for his politics." Harold's friends
call him "prodigiously clever and as tough as old boots."
The Wilsons attend the Free Church in N. London.
There is every indication that HaroldWilson will be
a strong, wise and scientifically brilliant Prime Minister
