Banana Mosaic Disease
By I. T. Twyford
Banana mosaic is a well known disease irf bananas
which has not hitherto been seen in the Windward Islands
-ithough it has been recognized in nearby areas like Mar-
tinique and Guadeloupe and a lecture on it was given dur/
ing'the Guadeloupe tcur in February, 1964.
In June, 1964, bananas in Montserrat were observed
to be stffe-ing from what looked like mosaic and the con,
dition was becoming widespread in that island. Recently
it has been seen in St. Vincent, Grenada and Dominica
though not so far ii St. Lucia. It appears that it is only
a matter of time however for mosaic to be present in all the
islands of the group and it is necessary now to describe it
and to put forward tentative control measures so that it will
not be allowed to spread.
Mosaic disease, when it attacks a plant early in its life
miay well cause complete cessation of growth or death and
evei in mild cases, bunch formation will be prevented or
intelfeed with. Wh.;n it strikes a plant near shooting it
causes extreme malformation of the bunch rendering it
unIAleable. It is thus an important disease and last year
250;'ooo plantains were lost in Puerto Rico because of it.
The disease affects all varieties of banana, so far as is
'"own, even the tetraploids, Musa balbisiana and balisier.
ntqins appear to suffer more than commercial varieties of
%. but for the latter it is still devastating.
Appearance Of Affected Plants.


'ost characteristic symptom is the loss of colour

is an abnormal thickening of leaf veins making them
eminent. Leaf sheaths also pull away from the pseudo,
stem markedly. When bunches are produced by plants
having mosaic disease they are usually misplaced; in some
cases they extend horizontally from the plant rather, than
hang down, in others they stick upright from ,the' crown

It is fortunate that a recognized expert on mosaic dis,

in problems of the West Indian region. It has been possi,
ble to consult him personally and the following is based on
Dr. Birdfs work and advice.
The disease is 'caused by the common cucumber
mosaic (a virus) and as such is not curable at the present
time. Furthermore, as stated above, no varieties are resis-
tant to it as far as is known. There are several stains of

NATION, COMMUNITY, MUNICIPALITY


SOME rather interesting things have
becasaid recently about nationalism,
community and municipality. One or
two of the prtnouncemetis bave come
ftom exalted wodtd figures such as His
Holiness the Pope and Her Majesty the
Queen, others from noteworthy local char,
actors. We think it would be an interest,
ingNew Year's exercise for our readers
to mpitethese various statements-easily
to be foundin the three recent issues of
this newspapei~icluding the present one,
and make up their own minds what they
understand by the terms nation (and na,
ionalism), community and municipality,
retitng upon the interrelation of these
concepts.
Another interesting puzzle present itself:


is it possible to have a "spirit of national,
lism" where there is no independent
nation? Is what we are seeking for a nar,
row Dominicaisland nationalism or a
wider cultural and social West Indian
fellowship? This vital question will be
enlarged upon in a future editorial. Mean-
while, it is worth thinking about!
The bells of ig65 will be ringing as
our readers, to so many of whom we are
indebted for kindness and encouragement,
gather festively to celebrate a hopeful New
Year, laying aside thought-provoking
newspapers until they have a quiet hour in
the comfort of hcme. ,
And so our pen rests upon these words:
A HAPPY, HEALTHY AND CON-
STRUOTIVE.NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!

Mary Bignall Rand
By Boy Moor

0 LYMPIC history was made at Tokio when the 24-years-
old English girl Mary Rand won the long jump event
wih a world and Olympic breaking record of zz fet
two inches. In so doing, she became th2 first woman
to jump 22 feet (two and a quarter inches more bhan the
existing world record), and the first womari to win aa
Olympics athletics gold medal for Britain.. Her tinal six
jumps did not vary more that eight inches from 21 feet six
inches to her gold madal winning achievement.
Greatest All-Round Woman Athlete
More medal honours came Mary Rand's way in later
stages of this most memorable Olympics a second place
and silver award in the Pentathl'n and a bronze as a mem,
ber of the British women's spiirit relay.
Mary Rand went to the Olympic Games in Tokio to
compete for gold medals in the long jump, Pentathlon. 80
metrts hurdles and sprint relay, as the greatest all/rouid
woman athlete ever to represent Britain in international
-ack and field athletics.
In addition to the long jump and Pentathlon, she has
'ved Olympic qualifying standard s for too metres,
etres, 8o metres hurdles and high jump.
e is so enthusiastic about her athletics that she
npily h.ve competed in these four events at the
'ell as those for which she had been nominated.
actors, rightly, appreciated that even a girl of
rnal athletics talents, could not possibly do
with such an arduous programme, so her
Torts in Tokio were concentrated on the
Pentathlon.
i tremendous long jumping form all
:and~ her outstanding aciecyvni--- -
had been the breaking ofkthe British record with a leap of
21 feet 7- inch.- io inches b:yorid the previous best set by
herself.


Only the Russian champion, Tatona Shchelkanova
(21 feet I T inches) had- beaten Mary's new best in ,world
athletics, but Mary beat Tatana on the two occasions they
met in competition last year.


BRITISH SPORTSWOMAN OF 1964


Mary Rand, Olympic Gold Medalist.


First Championship At 16
Twenty-four last February, Mary missed a great chance
of becoming the Olympic long jump champion.in Rome
four years ago. Then, as Miss Bignal, she outjumped all
her rivals in the preliminaries, only to encounter runup
trouble when the pressure was on in the final. She finished
ninth.
After those Games, she married Br'tain's Olympic
sculler, Sidney Rand. They have a twoyarsxold
daughter, Alison.
Training regularly throughout the year with her' hus,
band, near their home at HenleyonThames, helped Mary
to get stronger than she has ever been.
Ranked (before the Olympics) as the warld's No. z
to Ira Press, of Russia, for the Pentathlon, Mary had a Bri,
tish score this of 4,815 points to Ira's 4,959. Tokio saw
this fiveevent contest included in the Olympic programme
for the first time.
Mary Rand was born at Wells is Somerset, and began
takingan interest in sport at eleven years of age "because
it was comp'ilsry at school". At 15 she won her first
National schools championship at long jumping,
The following year she showed her outstanding vera,
utility by winning the English schools high jump title.
This December she was declared Britain's Sportswoman of
the year.
