Felicity Bolton Speaks
B. C, A, Secretary At Roseau & Portsmouth


Both Roseau and Portsmouth were privileged to hear the Secretary of the
British Caribbean Association address public meetings this week. Mrs. Bolton,
who was on her way from Jamaica's independence celebrations to the big festival
in Trinidad, paused for a few days in Dominica to visit friends, rest and get to
know the people.
On Monday, August 27, although of the British Labour Party, the guest
British Netball festivities and the cinema speaker gave a lively account of the
rivalled this important meeting, which present migrant situation in England
had to do with the welfare of West and of her work there on our behalf,
Indians in Britain and the composition listing some of the- important British
ofB.C.A,, a small attentive crowd and West Indian people and firms who
heard Mrs. Bolton speak of the work her have assisted B.C.A. since 1958. Hon.
Association was doing to break down W.S. Stevens, Minister of Labour and
colour bar attitudes and social injustices, Social Services, chaired the meeting, and
and to increase the prosperity' of these the speaker was introduced by Mrs.
islands. Explaining that the Associa- Allfrey. Hon. E.C. Loblack incor-
,tion was tri-partite in its political sup- porated a vote of thanks in his stimula-
iB, although she herself was a member ting speech.


In Portsmouth it appeared as if the
whole town had turned out to hear Mrs.
Bolton on Tuesday August 28. AfJlr
a quick tour of the" town and a look at
Long House Banana Shed in full
operation, she faced a capacity crowd
in the market. Hon. E.A. Leshe was
in the chair, but passed on the business
of introducing Mrs. Bolton to her old
friend Mrs. Allfrey. Mrs. Bolton
explained the non-political character of
the B.C.A. and appealed to the people
of Portsmouth who had friends or
relatives in England to keep in touch,
promising to get in touch with any
persons in London or Birmingham
whose addresses might be handed in
after the meeting. She gave a vivid
picturfi iaomeSof the causes ofracial
dntigonism .in cPtglana, pointing out
how West indans would object ifa lot
of.white people, moved into their cities,
taking jobs and moving into houses,
especially if -they had vastly different
ways of living and enjoying themselves.
She assured everyone that in most cases
there was friendliness and,that the West
Indians in Britain were doing a fine job
of work.
Hon, E.C. Loblack spoke next and
took the opportunity to tell the people
that, if only they might work as hard
(for good pay, of course) as their friends
and relatives in England, Dominica
could be a wealthy place. Hon. E.A.
Leslie wound up the meeting, and
speaking as the Portsmouth people's
representative, explained the position
arising at Grandvillia (see his letter on
p. 5) and also giving a report on the
Pumice Bill Debate in Legco. He
explained how the government found
that no legislation existed to cover the
mining rights and licences, and that
was the reason why the bill had been
introduced. It had been put on the
agenda as early as was legally possible


since the company which proposedto
mine thepumice was in a hurry. The
jposltn lm&aobjected to 'Cause 3,
which tatd tht a licence had to be
obtained t mine the pumice, on the
grounds that it would prevent any
individual gathering a little pumice
here and there for personal reasons such
as repairing a. oven. They refused to
accept the' ,Crown' Attorney s assurance
that the bill was so worded that it'only
applied to commercial und6rtakings and
they, therefore, walked out before the
end of the debate. The bill was passed
without a division, in their absence.
The following day Mrs. Bolton left
Melville Hall to fly to Trinidad for the
independence celebrations. She is

Governor General, Sir Solomon
Hoochoy.

Trinidad On The Threshold Of Independence
SBy
Sir Hilary Blood formerly Governor of Barbados
and of Mauritius
Independence celebrations hayv 'barely finished in. Jamaica before similar
celebrations rise tu a climax I,odo miles away to the south-cast. Trinidad, with
Tobago, becomes a sovereign state on August 31, 1962. The Princess Royal is
to attend the celebrations as the special representative of Queen Elizabeth II.
The two CariLbtan islands together are about the size of Lancashire: their
population numbers about 830,000. Trinidad was named by Columbus who
directed the course of his third ,voyage, in the spring of 1498, to the south of the
two previous journeys and sailed as far as the Cape Verdi Islands before turning
west.
His landfall across the Atlantic was the south-eastern corner of what he later
discovered to be an island. Becaussl he;sighted three hills which he said reminded
him of the Trinity, he named the island Trinidad. Columbus passed through the
narrow channels between Trinidad, and the mainland, calling them Boca del
Sierpe Serpent's mouth and Bocas del Dragon Dragon's mouths and
sighted a small island which he called Assumption. This island was probably
Tobago.
Various Nationalities
At that time Trinidad was inhabited by various Indian tribes Taino
Arawaks and others and with them. he got on friendly terms. Thus Trinidad
become originally a Spanish possession. As such it was not a great success -
possibly because the more adventurous Spaniards were attracted by and to the
Spanish Main.
:.In'theXVIIIth century an attempt was made to attract French settlers and
a niimber, went hfibq French occupied islands, and:. from Europe ahead of the
French revolution. ,Blit in z1797,.Trifidad was conquered by a British force.and,
fornially' ceded by Spain to Britain a few years later. A form of Crown Colony,
Government was imposed and,, as in many other dependent territories, this ~' has
been developed and liberalised dqwn the years until in 1961 Trinidad and Tobago--
they were amalgamated in 1899-became a full internally self-governing stare.
SEven before emancipation labour was short in Trinidad: the island was
'rJ-"-'-wlng.j.tpjy IhPnholknnq ,y( h-ltviTrade hand ......"". "lat"rs.t
from buying more slaves. Porttguese immigrants, Chinese, North 'American Indians
and Negroes, rescued from slave ships and employed as farm labourers, did little to ease
the situation and when, in 1834, the slaves in Trinidad, nearly 1,00ooo of' them,
were released the labour position became acute.
The vacuum was filled by indentured immigrant labour from India and between,
1838 and 1917, when Indian immigration was stopped, 134,000 Indians came\ to
Trithdad. Many returned to India at the end of their period of indenture- but: the
majority remained, and they and their descendants represent more than one-third of
the population of the island. In the 160 years since Trinidad was ceded to the
Crown the population has risen from about 18,o00 to its present total of 830,000.
Recent figures indicate this distribution: 17 per cent. mixed, 42 percent. of Negro
orgin, 38 per cent. East Indian, and the remaining three per cent. Chinese, Syrian,
French and British.
First Prime Minister
Perhaps because of the cosmopolitan nature of the population, and perhaps
also because Trinidadians are busy making money, politics have tended to be, even
movie than elsewhere in the Caribbean, a matter of personalities rather than parties.
3ut about eight years ago a bright star appeared in the political firmament in the
nersonpf Dr. Eric Williams. He created a party, the People's National Move-
nent, and won 13 of the 24 seats in the legislature at the last general election.
Under his guidance the island has achieved internal self-government and he
will be the first Prime Minister of the independent state of Trinidad and Tobago.
Speaking on the Trinidad and Tobago Independence Bill in the House
,ommons, the then Secretary of State for the Colonies Mr. Reginald Maudling,
described Dr. Williams as "a man of outstanding intellect who was going to make
a great contribution to the whole future of the Caribbean area,"
In the same speech Mr. Maudling said that it would enter into independence
with a "stronger economic base aud a better economic prospect than many countries
already independent." Fundamentally like all the West Indian islands, Trinidad is
an agricultural country- its main crops include sugar, cocoa, coffee, bananas and
citrus.
The island is far enough south to be virtually out of the hurricane belt and thus
does not suffer the disasters common to sister islands further north. Field products
are, therefore, more stable than elsewhere, and to Trinidad's sugar industry the
Commonwealth Sugar Agreement has been an inestimable boon.
But there are three other large producers of natural wealth-oil, shipping,
communications-and the tourist trade and light industries. Trinid.ad has an ex-
tensive oil refining capacity, a petro-chemical industry and an abundant supply of
natural gas.
I Trinidad is just 16 miles north of the coast of South America and at the hub
of ocean shipping and major air routes in the Western Hehiisphere. The harbour
of Port of Spain has docking facilities for large ships and the/Piarco airport accom-
modates jet aircraft.


The island has.been described as the Charing Cross or Clapham Junction of
the \VWst. But most important of all is the high state of industrialisation which has
b.en achieved in a comparatively short space of time The list of industrial pro-
ducts is long and lengthening: it includes items ranging from fertilisers to furniture,
textiles to tobacco, beverages to brassieres, and building materials to artificial teeth.
An indication of the country's expansion is given by the electric energy gen-
erated which has risen from less than oo,000,000o kilowatt hours inIs 95 to more
than 300,000,000 in 1961. In all, Trinidadis a good investment and many people
are finding it so, attracted there by incentives in the way of tax holidays, duty-free
importations of plant, industrial sites and other facilities allowed under local legislation
This then is the dependency which has journeyed ovet the long road of de-
pendence and passes on August 31 through the gate marked "Sovereignty." It
has great opportunities ahead and also a special responsibilities to prove what can be
done in a small island with a mixed people by common prudence and leadership.

C, S, A, & D. U. P. P, Reports On White Paper
Both Call For Strong Central Government
Much as the HERALD would like to publish in full the Memoranda or State-
ments of Policy received from the Civil Service Association and the D.U.P.P.
space does not permit the publication of, in one case nearly 5,000 words and the
other (the C.S.A.) nearer 7,000. We shall attempt to review these reports with.
out bias and high-lighting the more important of the criticisms and suggestions.
Readers should have beside them our June issues containing the full transcript of
the'East Caribbean Federation Conference White Paper for easy reference.
Both reports bear the hall-mark of responsibility and both go deeply into the
political philosophies surrounding the principles of .Federation and Democracy.
Both urge a very strong Central Government with very drastically reduced power
in the Unit Territories. As might be expected, the C.S.A. paper gives detailed
proposals as regards the Civil Service and the D.U.P.P. virtually ignores thesub.
ject, concentrating on the political and economic aspects of the proposed federation,

C. S. A. & D. U. P. P. Reports On White Paper

(Coritinued from page 2)
A Privy Council To Advise G. G.
Highlights of the C.S.A. paper are the proposal for a Privy Council to
advise the Governor General (who shall have powers commensurate with the 1957
Federal Constitution Ordcr in Council i.e. NOT full internal self-government),
and instead of the Economic Development Council and Industrial Development
Board suggested in the White Paper, a National Economic Advisory Council and
a somewhat unorthodox suggestion for the nomination of Senators; six persons are
first nominated (three by government and three by opposition) and an election for
two takes place by means of a selective ballot of Town Councils, Village Councils
and Village Boards (each having a different number of votes according to their
relative importance, numerically). Only two are elected, thus increasing the Senate
to sixteen (as compared with I8 elected members of the lower House).
The D.U.P.P. also prefers the larger Senate of two per unit, but at the same
time it opts for a larger House of Representatives (from the White Paper finger of 18
to 26.) They suggest that Senators should be paid an honorarium of $5oo per
annum and attendance and travelling expenses for sittings of Parhament. The
C.S.A. makes no suggesuous as go payment for Senators but gives a term of office
of seven years.
Unit Legislatures -
Both memoranda agree that the number of elected members in the Unit
Legislatures should remain the same but that nominated membership should be
discontinued. The C.S.A. feels that NO SALARIES SHOULD BE PAID EXCEPT
FQR EX. co.; but only attendance expenses. The D.U.P.P. that salaries should
be halved, and that one or at most only two Ministers should be retained. The
C.S.A. would aSolish the posts of Ministers and have Departments of State run by
Civil Servants (N.B. Prof. Arthur Lewis' origihalproposals were against top-heavy
Ministerial systems, on account of the financial burden of a large civil service, not
on account of the salary of the Ministers)..
More Matters for Exclusive List
The above recommendations for emasculation of the Local Legislatures should
be taken in the light of the proposals to transfer a large proportion of subjects from
the concurrent to the exclusive list. Both memoranda want higher education on
the exclusive list, both want Primary Education to be concurrent :and in addition
the D. U. P. P. sugb,* s that Techological and Agricultural Education be kept
Concurrent. Items according to the Wvlite -aper -_ tFarti enumeration whic
should not be within the Exclusive Legislative Powerof the Federal Government
are as follows: D. U. P. P., Items I, 2, 3, 9, 1o, II, 13, 17, 21, 23, 26', 28, 30,
32, 33 and by the C. S. A. Items 3, 21, 23, 26, 30, and 32. In other words
the C. S. A. recommends that only seven out .of33 items should remain in the
competence of the Units. In addition they argue strongly that subjects not men-
tioned should be put on the Concurrent List and not Reserved to the Units, If
This list in the White Paper Appendix is scrutinized it will be clear that both
memoranda wish to remoire from the scope of the Units all matters fiscal, financial
or in any way remotely concerned with money-taxes, customs, hire-purchase bank.
cruprcy etc. all become Exclusive.
It is noticeable, that in cases where the White Paper is undecided or states tc
be decided on Independence" or "after further consultation", the two papers under
discussion come out with clearcut views and detailed proposals, which will obvious-
ly stimulate discussion (if not agreement). The C.S,A. paper gives an impression
of wanting to reduce on the expenditure on "the people's representatives," but doe
not comment on the expenditure on the Civil Service. The D.U.P.P. paper goes tc
some pains, when they propose an increase in the people's representation, to show
exactly how the money could be saved elsewhere (in the Units). What develops
most obviously is that both organizations want to see a Federation, and want to see a
strong Federal Government with adequate taxing and powers such control over legis-
lation that the Units would be left with minor and very local matters to deal with.
The D.U.P.P. brings up the question of additional aid from the U,K.(with pro'
mised joint assistance from the U.S.) vide: W.I.Constitutional Gonference, 1961,
para 40.
Both reports should be carefully studied by interested persons (and All persons
should be interested) in the original. They show thought and responsible writing,
and should be a challenge to other organisation.
Of the many apt quotations to befound in both Papers we choose the oni
from the philosopher Hume to reprint:-
"To balance a large State or Society.... on general lines is a work of so grea
difficulty that no human genius, however comprehensive, is able by the mere din
of reason and reflection to effect it. The judgement of many must unite it
the work: experience must guide their labour: time must bring it to perfection."


Algerian Elections Postponed
ALGIERS, Aug. 25, (CP): The Algerian National Political Bureau said
that the parliamentary elections scheduled for September 2, had been postponed
until conditions of real peace were assured.


Notice To Intending Travellers And Travel Agents
The attention of all persons intending to leave Dominica, wheth-
er for vacation purposes or otherwise, is drawn to Rula 2 if the
Income Tax (Evasion of Tax Payment) (Prevention) Rule, 1961,

ON NATIONAL LEADERSHIP
ONE OF THE THINGS the old Federation attempted to do, and to
a certain extent succeeded in doing, was to raise the attitude
of Members and Ministers above tending their own little gardens
exclusively and to direct short-sighted vision to a larger landscape.
This brave attempt failed because of faulty human relations, econ-
omic strains and the parish or constituency habit-of-mind of the
leaders. It is so much simpler and more natural to raise a self-
monument in the home circle for future glorification or political
consolidation than to take the long view and be "one whose name
is writ in water" ... the waters of the Caribbean Sea, in which so
many high hopes have drowned. The parish bells have been
ringing loudly and ebulliently in Jamaica and Trinidad these days:
yesterday a knell, today a fete . and tomorrow, perhaps, a new
bptism.
For the so-called "Little Eight" . the big-hearted survivors
S. the days of the long view are coming again. These days are
not beingjiered in b _bell-ringing and fireworks, but by patient
study and thoughtful fraternity. n every corner 'oitheenrtfsh-
Commonwealth it is an eternal maxim that the opinions of the
minority, whether racial, religious or political, should be examined
and respected. We therefore welcome the careful attention which
has been given to the White Paper on East Caribbean Federation
by the Opposition D.U.P.P., though this may not be taken as
endorsement of their recommendations; and the Civil Servants
(who in almost every territory are.suspected of really trying to run
the country behind the scenes) have come out boldly with 24 fool-
scap pages of criticism and suggestions. We are sure that the
Government of Dominica will go through these documents most
carefully, taking also into account any other views which may be
formally expressed to them from every quarter, displaying the ne-
cessary elasticity of mind of true national leadership, uutil the mo-
ment comes for them to make their own official summation and
pronouncement.
For after all, the White Paper is not a- sacrosant document.
It is a soundly worked-out framework upon which eight ruling is-
land Governments have agreed, but it is by no means totally deci-
sive. The fact that comment and criticism has been invited from
all sections is a healthy sign. Most Colonial Office White Papers
are shockingly pedestrian and tedious in their verbiage, and this
one is no inspired exception. It may be found later that to con-
cede points here and there to sensible minority representations
throughout all the Eight islands of the new Federation will en-
hance, rather tharr diminish, the constitution of a new nation
which will have a longer view and a larger loyalty than the two
secessionist national states.

WASTED BEAUTY
The town of Portsmouth lies in one of the most beautiful
natural settings in the West Indies. A shallow cradle nestling
between magnificent hills and the seashore, capable and worthy
of becoming a city second to none if only vision and capital
would some day coordinate, this town (which so recently knew
the boon of electric street-lighting) has a neglected and depressed


appearance, as disheartening as that of certain streets in Roseau-
Let us fact it : Portsmouth suffers from neglect . neglect by
Government, and self-neglect. The former condition dates back
for decades if not for centuries: the latter is continual, and could
be changed tomorrow, with a will and a way.
Portsmouth is full of young girls, and a fair number of
youths, who have no occupation save to stand around aimlessly
so that mischief may befall them. We hope that the resident
Extra Mural Tutor from U.W.I. will soon find time to examine
the student potential of this towfl of wasted beauty, and to start
some classes in the neighbourhood which will give these young
people hope and direction. Recently arrived in Portsmouth are
returned migrants from Britain who would (we are certain) be
happy to change the boredom of their existence by joining in
schemes for the town's betterment. All that is needed is stimu-
lus and organisation, and Portsmouth's leading citizens bear part
of the responsibility. The Member for Portsmouth has been
\fighting a difficult battle, assisted by one or two civic-minded
persons, to persuade his people that they must help themselves so
that they may be worthy of outside aid. Both kinds of assistance
are requisite: Portsmouth deserves them, so that she may be to
an improved Roseau what San Fernando is to Port of Spain and
Montego Bay is to Kingston. All of us will help... but the
primary motivation must come from the Portsmouth people!
We hope and expect that one of these days streams of traffic
from the airport will flow in two directions. .. one stream to
Roseau, and the other to Portsmouth, capital of the North.

Those Chinese
immigrants
Sir,- The opinion of Alice in
"Through the Looking Glass" on the
importation of Chinese agrarian workers
into Dominica is a stimulant to wishful
thinking. But let me use that ambigu-
ous word 'interesting' because, like all
good ideas which come from outsiders and
which we do not possess the initiative to
u ie, we like others to imagine we are giv-
ing it a second thought!
The undersigned has had the privi-
lege of living among the Chinese people
for many years and heartily endorses the
view that, if you want to change the
face of Dominica overnight and put on
a new look of thriving prosperity, then
import Chinese agrarian workers and if
we want to be excessively particular, then
let us stipulate, Christian agriculturalists,
carpenters, or masons with their wives
and children.
Yes today the United States of Amer.
icl has a big problem and that is to sup-
ply farm labour for their rural areas and
we can trust them to know a good thing
when they see it. Today dear uncle Sam
is opening its doors to these gentle hard
working Chinese peasant workers who
are feeling the wrath ofMao and the Com-
munist heeL We can do the same and not
pretend Chrtstian Charity but give some
Chinese families a hand and a chance to


farm our land. I can promise you, not.
an island which is little different from
when Columbus discovered it, but clean
well kept farms, harmonious qu-et and
steady activity, herds of well kept pigs
ducks and poultry. The market place
would be crowded with masses of fresh
vegetables in abundance and variety,
flowers and fruit like luscious pineapples
and streets and compounds swept like
when "old Mayor Nicholls had a town,
ei ai ei yi yoh" and clean -clean -
clean.
Yours sincerely,
JONATHAN SWIFT.

Offclal Press Release By The Windward Islands Banana Growers Association


The Delegation from the Windward Islands, now in London, has just con-
cluded what may be regarded as a successful mission in the overall interest of banana Aug.
growers in the territories concerned.
One bfthe main objects of the visit was to conduct an on-the-spot investi-
gation into the reasons and factors leading up to the recent unprecedented drop in
the official Green Boat price for bananas-in the U. K. market; and to secure the 0
earliest possible recovery of the market; so that the growers may be assured of a Sala
reasonably renumerative summer price. expe
To thisend, theDl`iIation held a series of discussions with Geest Industries Indu
Lcd.., the purchasr: of all -Windward Islrid bananas, and also met Elders and
al levels of the trade (retailers, wholesalers and green ripeners) were visited in
different parts ofthe.countty arid much valuable information .gleaned.
On all matters of common interest, the Delegation worked in harmony with
the Delegation from the Jamaica Banana Board which is also in ,the U. K. for a 1
similar purpose.
S Opportunity was also taken to hold useful and encouraging talks with the
Colonial Office on matters particularly affecting the industry to wit Britain's pro-
posed entry into the European Common Market, present British policy on Dollar Sept
Lieralisation, and the future position of Cameroon Fruit in the U. K. market.
.A full report on the entire exercise of the Delegation has been prepared and A
will be submitted shortly to the Island Associations for study, squad
Meantime, the Delegation is pleased to announce that as from Monday, the Dwe
i7th day of August the official Elders and Fyffes Green Boat price will be put Geon
back up to where it was before the collapse, that is to say at 467. 5. o. per ton. JESS
This should enable Geest Industries Ltd. to maintain this price as it has been
doing throughout the crisis.
The Windward Island Delegation was led by Mr. Denis Henry, President
of the Windward Island Banana Growers Association, accompanied by Mr. H.
V. Atkinson, Deputy-President and Mr. W. D. Lapiar, Secretary.
