What Kind Of Union

iams r-ceut pronouncentearts win e
on tour and recent statements made
by the Trinidad High Commissioner
in Canada, Mi. Andrew Rose. To
some observers the move is based on
trade and economics fther than on
closv.r soco-political relations.
Last April, just b-fore Dr. Wil,
liams left England, the Sunday Times
said he wa> leaving "wvitn the main
purpose of his visit to Britan unat-
tained. His talk with Mr. Sandys,
the Commonwealth Secretary, and
senior officials appeals merely to have
intmensified his disenchantment witL
the Commonwealth in general and
with Britain in oa.icular."
"He hoped" tne Times con-,
tinued "to negotiate a Govern-
ment loan of some i0o million in
London, but he has apparently been
offered a good dal less on terms
which he has 4ound objectionable....
he hopes to do better in Ottawa and

mon with countries like the Uni.ed
Arab Republic or Jugoslavia than
with most of the Commonwealth
countries. Commonwealth align-
ment is a meaningless phrase".
The Times Diplomatic Correspon-
dent (Nicholas Cartoll) concludes:
"Two years as Prime Minister of in-
dependent Trinidad appeared to have
left the diminutive Dr. Williams more
pugnacious than ever. His island
country seems far too small a base for
his restless physical and intellectual
energies. With his dark glasses, his
hearing aid and his surprisingly deep,
growling voice, he is an arresting

personality who is likely to make aI
srong impact on the coming Prime 1
Ministers' conference," I

If one goes back to the roots of
socialism, as one- must necessarily go
in order to keep a clear head, it be-
comes clear beyond dispute that the
fundame.ital zim of socialism is the
ni-rgement of the human personality,
that is socialism aims at so manipu-
lating the social and economic con-
ditions of life that the general mass o
of me citizens can deve op their per- c
tonalities to the highest possible level ( thereby have a reasonable op-, i
portutity of enjoying happiness. s
Long and bitter experience even 'e-'
lore the rise of modern socialism, has j
proved that no society can achieve
this anm in which the governm-r.t is
not accountable to the general mass
of the citizens. At worst, the group I
that controls the government will
bend it to its own selfish interests; at
best, it will make the govar.ment bet in accordance with what the t
group cooceives to be the general in-
terest; which coei not differ consid-
erably from its own interest. In other
words, any system' of government
which does not put the government t
firmly under the control of the gene-
ral mass of the people is it compat:-
be with socialism.

Canadian And
Home Nurses
We all agree with the states -
tics on the infant mortality, rate for
the Wes Indies. (highest in Domin-
ica). 1herfore every opportunity
to get help should be utilized,
visitors, agricultural information etc.
We .should waste no time in
petty arguments such as giving
Jackie her Jacket because as far as I
understand 'praise was not meant to
be given to the Canadian Nurses
with the idea to belittle our local
district Nurses. The district Nurses
are Dominicans working for the
welfare for their native land, and we
are -1 proud of them. A person is

are apparently told not to operate

HERE have be-n quite a few e-rais and omissions on
the part of a large number of Banana Growets in
respect of their claims and other matters in connection with
the Hurricane & Windstorm Insurance and the following
points are published to serve as guidance for the future:
1. Soon after a Hurricane or high winds,
you should visit your h o 1 d i n f; s and check
as near as possible the loss in fallen ratoon mats.
If the result is in the region of o/o% and over of the total
cultivwtion, get hold of a claim form. They are available
at the various Association branches scattered throughout
the island. At the SubOffice at Portsmouth or the
Locl Insurance office at the D. B. G. A. or the Sub,
Local Office at Calibishie in the charge of the Assistant'
Local Officer.
Please note that you have a period of ten (10) clear
days to put in your claim including the date the wind
storm occurred. After whichtime your claim will be late
and receive no attention. The Authority however, usually
extends the time for receiving claims during a great disaster
such as a Hurricane.
Let your information ol the claim be truthfully stated
and never try to backdate a claim in respect of damage
Sas the Assessors, who are usually well trained men, will
discover from the condition of your fallen trees that you
arc dishonest about this and may call off the assessment, for
which you would only have yourself to blame.
2.. After yoi have lodged your claim at the Insurance
Office, you will then be informed, well ahead, of a
time and-date when an assessor shall visit you to determine
your actual loss; of course you know that all claims in which
assessment falls below 20% are unqualified and the grower
is paid no benefit. In other words, loss below this amount
orne y the groqer himselt.
3. .Never wait on a friend or other individual to put in
a claim for you as the chances are that such a claim may
never made out; or, as we know from experience, may
arrive too late,
4. Always ensure that you, or some one you desire to
represent you, is present during the time your holding is be,
ing assessed. Your failure to do so, may cause cancellation of
your claim, or leave you with no other choice but to accept
the assessor's figures blindly.
5. During the assessment, you will be asked a few
pertinent questions. Do not believe that the assessor is
just a curious person who wants to know your private
business: this information is vital in order to arrive at a
quick and accurate method ot payment.
Thbse questions are: Where do you dispose of your
bananas? Do you sell all your fruit on your own
name or the name of others? How many different hold,
ings do you have? Where situated? Number of ratoon
mats in each, and if all fruits handled are sold as one or
separately i. e. on the name of each holding. Failure to
give truthful information can only lead to delays and dis,-
appointment; and it is now well known that quite a few
growers disposed of their fruits in some fictitious name in
order to escape the taxman, only to find that when he has
suffered loss there is no means of paying him benefits
which always have reference to his sales during the last
twelve months. In the end, he usually loses more than
the few paltry dollars he robs from the taxman.
6. For quick and r e a d y payment of
the correct amount of bene fi t it is essen,
tial that growers sell their fruit direct to the
purchasing company as agents of the D. B. G. A. at main
Reception Stations or to Association buying points in the
name of the holding (when he has more than one holding.)
While selling to a subagent or Dealer may have some ad,
vantages, unless the system is well organised and the dealer
himself is one with integrity, you may not get accurate
record of sales from him and consequently, satisfactory
figures to establish your claim, should you find your
benefit payment deficient. ,

7. Lastly make sure that all separate holding- are Revivalist Visits

The Federal Ships
Sir,--It is broadly believed
that from the point of view
of having Tourism from

the implementation of the
suggestion that the standard
of the first class cabins on the
Federal Shis should be
lowered would definitely be
a shameful blunder of the
first, magnitude; because the

beautiful ships would then
be reduced to the classifica-
tion and the status of glorified

does not know how the small

A Smaller Canada
Madam Editor,
I have been thinking for quite a
while that our lovely island if under
an a s s n m e d rame of LITTLE
CANADA is sure to prosper, especial,
ly with tourism.
It is not first because of existing
relations (commercial and cultural)
between the two, for then the other
islands would have the same claim.
No! It is rather because of resem,
balance in a hundred and one ways.
Rugged mou nt ains, sparkling
streams, lakes and waterfalls, and the
many fish (such as cavalli, jacks red-
fish and trunny fish) for which our
coastal waters are celebrated.
Near the coast there is also the
level Country known as Grand
Savannah, waiting p e r h a p s, to
develop into a big cattle farming
site thus to make this land more
Canadian in pattern.
History and tradition and two
languages also bind Dominica and
Canada together.
