After more than a decade as the main strategic battlefront in the U.S. war on drugs, the mini-states of the Caribbean, led by Jamaica and the Bahamas, have opened a campaign to draw the United Nations into an active anti-drug combat role. The aim is to ease sensitivities over too great an American presence in drug-troubled countries such as Colombia, Bolivia and Peru. Prime Ministers Michael Manley of Jamaica and Lynden O. Pindling of the Bahamas have called for a rapid U.N.

Beckoning beaches are still empty, the salt pans that once meant jobs are abandoned. But change may finally be overtaking one of Britain's last outposts in the Caribbean. On the brink of major development, the Turks and Caicos, a colony of about 30 sun-drenched, water-short islets southeast of the Bahamas and north of Haiti, will probably change more in the next decade than it has in the last four centuries. Many people here hope that includes some sort of union with Canada.
