"IN VIS0i of the repres rntittiens l-iSde by the Chamber of Commerce,
Government is nw exsiai.nig the commodities affected to make any
adjustinents to the Control Prices that may be necessary. In the
meantime the Price List published on 28th March will'not be en-
forced. It is hoped however that an amended list which will be
strictly enforced will be published shortly."
Such is the 2nd paragraph of an official release dated April 11.
Most of our readers know the lead-in to this notice: that Government
(in the words of our columnist Androcles) had a system of price-
naming at which controlled goods are to be sold which is not work-
able, since new consignmeits, in these days of instability of costs,
so frequently change in price that variations of the Order would
probably be needed with each consignment received.
Government's admission that their price list will not work is a
distinct triupmh for the Chamber of Commerce and the mdrchants,who
behaved with commendable moderationn, putting the public to as little
inconvenience as possible. The little retail shopkeepers, might
have been wiped out by severe Government action; now there is a re-
prieve. As well as moderation, 61a displayed a laudable militancy._
Who would have thought that a Government worthy of the nai, ev"id-
ently diaire.-'!lingc its own Price Control Conmmittee would iss3,1 a
list of controlled prices in which certain imported commodities )ere
required to be sold at less than their landed prices? When the Cham-
ber of Conferce enquirer of Government the basis upon which such
prices was reached, Government either would not or could not supply
the information, we are credibly informed. Yet any Primary Third
Standard pupil studying. 'profit & loss' could tell Government that
Ithe selling price of icport-.e foods must be landed cost plus. We

SA REJOINDER by Androcles
Not less than seven titios in the course of his letter published in the
DOMI-IICAI HERALD of March 30th a writer, under the psoudonyn "Fairplay', rneinds
roadors that Mr. GA. Winston is an Honourable man. As far as this columnist is-
concerned, .it would have boon more rewarding if "Fairplay" had concentrated on
persuading us that honourable with a small t'h was also applicable to his hero.
By t'he way, let me draw the writer's attention to the fact that it is bad form
to have recourse to a second newspaper in which to rebut statements originally made
in another. This is only done if the first newspaper refuses to publish the letter
of complaint. Thus, the onan fidos of the STAR should have been tested before
S"Fairplay" turned to the DOTIIITfCA HERAL.
Lot me clear up on- thing. The writer of the letter complains that since the
General Election of 1961, henchmen, supporters etc. of other political parties
"havo takon every opportunity to-houndS" Mr. Winston. This is not quite so. People
meorly recollect the part that Mr. Winston played in that Election with distaste.
However, the composition of the Agricultural Markoting Board is our immediate
business. Note that I have not challenged the combetcnce to be on the Board (as I
have done regarding most of the other recently appointed 'members) of Mr. Winiston.
'Thus it is quite unnecessary for' "Fairplay'" to provide details of his.-connection
with markets and marketing. No, I have not challenged that gentleman's technical
ooapotoence to sit on or even chair the Dominica Marketing Bohrdc. What I did say
(and it is reassuring to see that "Fairplay" has not denied it) was that Mr.Winston
had developed an antipathy towards the Citrus Co-operative because of his own
personal difficulties with soor of the' leading members of that body some years agoV.
The implication of my statement is that he is therefore not a tactful person to have
beon appointed to, let alone elected to chair that Board, since the relation between
the Co-operative and the Board needs to be close and friendly in the interest of
... the development of the Citrus industry.
I have been informed that it is Mr. Winston who has boon advocating and trying
to persuade the Governmont to.use legislative powers to roeovo the marketing of its
meribeors grapefruit from ',the Co-operative (which controls not less than 80% of the.
exports of this produce) and vest it in the Marketing Board. Ministers of Govern-
mont have not made a secret of the fact that Mr. Winiston. urges thoe'on to this. And
readers may hardly'beliove what I.next say. Mr. Winston's proposal, according. to
several informants, is that Gocst, which for years has been marketing the Co-opora-
ti-vos fruit, should be the same agency to market the fruit-if the Marketing Board
took-over. The question which immediately comes to rind is: why take over? What is
behind this scheme?
Ioro is another of Mr. Winstonts bizarre proposals: he urges that the returns
on grapefruit sold over the whole season be averaged and that the fruit which fotdied
a very high price in the early season be paid format tho'same rate as that which
fotched low prices in the late part of the season.-. Thus,-those persons who by dint
of additional costs in cultivation and manuring r3anagod to ohbtai early- irui~t: Ioould
get the sane prices. as those who monely sat on their haunches and lot Nature have
her way. -Yet, this is what ifould happen if Governnont took over the-grapefruit of
producers.l (Like early strawborrios or early peas on European markets, early grapo-
fruit is a different economic commodity from late produce and priced accordingly).
What principle of co-operativism can be invoked in support of this overall rate
nonsanso? Incidentally, this ir my reply to "Fairplays'"-query about low prices
E-acoivod by producers in the 1966 seE.on:. Those who shippod'fruit in the earlier
part of the season (up .to mid-October) got very good prices, while fruit shipped
later than this came out in the red. Why did not the writer ask about the very
successful 1967 season and of earlier ones?
I am not conccnned to rebut details provided by "Fairplay" about incidents in
the life and career of the Board's new Chairman, What I am concerned about is' that,
a developing agricultural industry should not be put in jeopardy by the attitude of
one man and of those whoso oars he has -- all Honourable monbors like hilmslf.

Spraying the eye with wonder

Rags Twotone Writes Again ....... MAM AND TIE "EES-CHOPPrI=
h Since I last wrote in those pages, a lot has
happened to me and my family, human and animal.
E must confess that my behaviour has not always
been up to the highest dog-standard, for I suffer
from neuroses and obsessions. I believe, for
Seoxamtple, that I am the aDke of St, Aroment, and
resent anyone passing up the private road to
Bath state lands of Laronde'ss afterr all,
little G, and I were the only creatures actually
born here, for Mam was born in Roseau and only
came up for holidays to visit her grandfather-
long ago. oreover~ I hve a, stupid notion that
when I jump on beautiful children in their clean clothes to fawn and lick their faces,
they will love me. Instead, iif they don't !ow me they scroam, and myi great claws may
scratch them, (ice I jumped on our little l Robbie and knocked him flat, but now, he has
me sized up so he gives me a push and says 'go away', which makes me ashamed. ead and
li!m tie me up with a great cow-rope at night so tlt I y only warn intruders,. Some-
times if I bark or frisk too mech they tie me in the daytime toot although the days of
slavery are over; especially after a neighEboua threaten ed to sue usJ and after tMam fel
she might have to buy dresses for all the pretty litQle girls; in upper Federation Drive;
On my credit side, criminals and thieves who used to haunt toheso leaty parts tend to
avoid the district when they see and hear me, for in an emer I-: hwve a ~eni:; trick
of slipping off the knot of the cow-rope,.
Much of ny doggy life is i.-te listen:ina to conversations literary, friendly and
political, I learned early that Mar had her lwn sort of obsession over tree-choppers.
She-once saw a play in London, by Chekhoi (her favourite fsassian writer), and in that
play there were three sisters who lived.in an old house surroiuded by nuit trees.While
the people in this drama talked on stage, there -ras t, noise of chopping, and the chopping
maSnt that the sisters were losing their land and property, which had been allowed to
decay bit by bit. Long before that, even, t..; had this passion for trees, believing.-
like the Greeks that trees had spirits and that if you killed beautiful old trees, haiin
would come. Consequently whenever there is chopping going on arou nd her (and particul-
arly on family land), she gets deeply upset. When Bth Estate hacked down the bread-
fruit trees to plant bananas, Mai rushed out .to -persuade the overseer to desisttelling
him that breadfruit was the food of the poor people: but he said he had his orders, She

Short Story "TEE MOPPERS' CURE" (Part I) by Julian Guiste

Dominica is a land of fete" Lord. Breaker
.,.Life couldn't be more beautiful for Dominicats feting set.".....

It was the ideal night for a fete. No need to mention that withHoJiday Monday
two days away the holiday spirit was strongly permeating the atmosphere. The
weather was remarkably fine and the stars which decorated the firmament presented
a.picturesque tableau produced by the Master-sa hand.
There was nothing ner in the way of entertainment for the majority of the
public since "Cleopatra1" was now going into its seventh night at the Carib, and
Palm Grove, unfortunately, had been forced to close down'to convert itself into
the "respectable" night-club of its shareholders' dreams, and was, that night, th-
venue for a "Members Only" semi-formal Dance, occupyi-ng the services of the two
S leading combos in town.
Therefore, there seemed to be no "life" that Saturday night, and the only course
open was for one to organise his own.
hNot that that critical state of affairs unduly bothered the "Life-Lads" for one
S moment. They had just gathered at their meeting place, the interior of a car, to
discuss just that.
tGentlemen,' began bespectacled Fitter, the parliamentarian of that group of
young men, all living only for the "next fete."
'Gentlemen, there is only one path- left-open to us. I beg to move, second,
vote for and pass etcetera, etceter a e, that we proceed immediately to-organise one
of our impromptu sessions for tonight. All those in favour say "Rum I those
against, don't speak '
'No better night I I exclaimed Bingo Hilson, amidst the unanimous shouts'of
"R-um For a change there was something positive ab6ut his attitude, for, though
he was dubbed the most "negative" member of the group, the exception to his rule.
was "rumn-ing." He could smell a "bottle" a mile off.
tWait...a minute I that was Coz; everybody kept quiet. Coz had that remark-
able way about him. Uith as little as a significant motion of his hand, he cap-
tured the attention of everyone in his immediate-vicinity.
Tha,boys looked upon him as the most "positive;" member of the group, and he
Sstrove hard to project that image of himself. -His ideas and suggestions were
i imos-ly the ones which carried weight in the clique. -
'Listen fellers I he was saying, tampering indifferently with the steering of
his Viva SL-- for that was the meeting place, 'ro have to plan this thing well.
Bulllshitter I The 'individual thus addressed, acknowledged the summons with a
raised index finger, simultaneously bending his head slightly forward shyly and
with a smile a characteristic trait of his. Coz.continued:
'Bullshitter, start collecting from the fellors. Three dollars each man '
-'Wu1-wwaitttt a minute pi-pu-pardner I stammered Cyril Baygas. Where money
was involved he was always "negative", and nearly always stammered when a seemingly
big contribution was demanded. He was the only schoolboy in the group..
'Oh Baygas, Coz cut him short with a searing look of mock reproach, and con-
tinuod:
'Three dollars each man, that's lemme see, that's twenty-one dollars..O.K...
as usual, let's have pity on Cyril...'
'Wait i cried Eim, the group's cynic, 'eight threes are twenty-four -- where

"T'1 assasmlination.of President Kennedy killed not only a .man...'. It 'demolished
the. myth that hate and violence ..can be confined in an aictight chamber to be

that these words may very well apply .to Dr.King himself?
Wost Indians and dark skinned Amoripans (like the Englishman and the Amcritan) '
may be the, same onlour and speak nearlyy) the same. laUnguago, but their problems
and culture are .difforcnt, and hard for each other to understand fully. F'rantL.ly
I think that many fachrs of intolerance in ,America would ba funny if they didn't .
have' such tragic overtones; .isn't it ironic that tiny Dominica is miles ahead
.of the richest and most powerful nation on earth when it comes to ra.c unity I
I lived in America.for -years, and due to my religious beliefs as a. BaMhi I
inevitably :found, myself :involved, in this race unity question. (You will notice
that use the term 'race unity. in preference to 'civil rights.': equal laws arc.
a. first step, .but nobody can :pass a law that .will make people '.love one another).
Being a. Gaucasian' (and that ts American for 'white man ), escaped most of the
insults that a'coloured person in a similar position would expect as a matter of
ooursd, although my wife was asked once before marriage to leave her apartment
moroly because Negro friends had called on her to take her to.a Bahai meeting ...
I never mot *Dr.King personally over the race unity problem, but had, several .
friends who kniow him well,, and respected him. It is. hard to' explain how DrKing's
doctrine of non-violence plus love. was so deceptively simple, and yet is .the
single most -important building-block of race unity in Ameriica. *It calls for a
quiet persistent cdura.g, and-lots of hard unspectacular work quite different
from the senseless hooliganism that topk over in many cities. I worked at a
rlargo printing plant in thoe .iF its area of Los Angolos and had to drive to work
through the-riots there: this reminded me of the hoight of the London Blitz,
and if Dr.' King's death :-ill convince people that -love.and .cooperation are

mont, Everybody except Coz and Baygas was to contribute throo dollars. Coz was
to pay half price, the other half making up for petrol, Baygas would supply throe
crates for buying "chaser."
Bingo was to make a large bottle of punch with a dollar and a halfts worth of
"kaka poulo", while his brother promised to cook the pelau. The session would
be hold at their honel..
Coz (for-transoort), Bulshittor and Bim were to buy all the '"ncessarais" from

The others, Fitter, Captain, Baygas, Bim and Julio wore seemingly fused into
their respective partners, gyrating with the minimum of movement, now and then
whispering "sweet nothings" into the ears of the gullible gils.-
At- -that moment life couldn't have been more beautiful for the Lifo-Lads (the

Prof- P. Mahavedan, Dcan- of the Faculty
of.Agriculture of the U.T,.I., was guest
lecturer at the Dominica Lions Club
last Tuesday evening. He gave a very
lucid and informative lecture on ie work
of his Faculty.
Tho Professor pointed out that a recent
man-power survey carried out under the
auspioias of the Rockefellor Foundation
showed that 267 professional agricul-
turists will be required in the area in
1968 to 1972. Guyana has 27 vacancies'
in the professional grades in agricult-
ure, Trinidad has had to shelve its
Crown Land Settlement Scheme for lack
of professional staff in agriculture.
The University has the facilities for
training the necessary staff, but new
students are not entering the field in
sufficient quantities. The present in-
tako of new students is only 15 to 20
annually. Many more are needed iimm~di-
ately.
The Professor wont on to describe the
work being done in research and exten-
sion, .Ie is at the present. time nego-
tiating a schoem with the U.!T. for
extension of the livestock industry in
the area. The scheme is estimated at
