3. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will submit urgently to the Adminis-
trator his first rough Report as soon
as possible after the disaster. The
Report should give such information
as may be considered fairly accurate
and also an opinion as to the extent
of the disaster in those parts of the
district from which there are only
rumours, with an estimate of the pos-
sible requirements in the way of relief.
This report should also give a rough
estimate of loss of life, serious per-
sonal injury, damage to houses and
destruction of food crops and food sup-
olies, and number of individuals ren-
dered destitute.
4. Each District Hurricane Authori-
ty will send in further reports correct-
ing and amplifying the first report and
giving such details as are possible, as
soon as receipt of information justifies
his doing so; and he will continue to
send in daily or periodical reports, as
may be necessary, acting on his own
discretion.
5. The Officials of each District will
afford the District HurricaneAuthority
all the information in their power,
with the least possible delay, in order
that the report may be full and com-
plete.

8. In the event of communication
with the District Hurricane Authority
being difficult or impracticable, the
Local Hurricane Authority will report
direct to the Administrator.
9. Each District Authority will en-
deavour to keep in close touch with
the Local Hurricane Authorities in
the various areas in his District and,
in spite of there being no such vote,
will be justified in expending the
money urgently needed, whether for
special messenger or for food, without
awaiting the Administrator's authori-
ty, up to a limit of 5 for each Dis-
trict. Just as the Administrator will
authorise urgent expenditure in anti-
cipation of being able to justify it to
the Council and Secretary of State, so
the District Authorities may rely on
the refund of the sums they expend
without authority, provided that they


MONDAY JUNE 30, 1952


can show that the expenditure was
reasonable and the need for it urgent.
10. The Public who have suffered
loss or damage should apply to the
Local Hurricane Authorities in each
area and not come or send to the

NOTICE.

HURRICANE WARNING.

1. At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of
July, all shutters and fastenings should
be thoroughly overhauled and renewed
where necessary. In the case of de-
tached shutters identification marks
should be clearly painted on each, cor-
responding with the number and loca-
tion of each window.
2. When barring up a house on
indications of bad weather or the ap-
proach of a hurricane--begin with the
side facing the direction of the pre-
vailing wind, which varies as a rule
from the North-West to North-East.
Should the centre happen to pass over
the island during the period of calm
the north side should be opened up
and the southern or westerly sides
closed. Very often, however, the
hurricane shifts directly from North-
East to South East with little or no
interval of relative calm, and under
such circumstances it is wise to have
every window securely fastened.
3. For the information of the public
generally it may be stated that a
special hurricane code is in use and
on the indication of a falling barometer
and prevailing hurricane symptoms,
mutual telegrams are interchanged;
this is supplemented by a voluntary
service by the Cable and Wireless
(West Indies Limited) who have kindly
undertaken to publish daily barome-
tric and other weather observations
from the observations from the neigh-
bouring islands.
DOMINICA. The following signal,
will be made from Fort Young, Roseau.
as a warning in event of probable ap-
proach of a hurricane or severe gales










OFFICIAL GAZETTE,

mises on shore and vessels in port

tions after either the Cautionary or
Danger Signals have been made, and
it is considered that the hurricane has
passed Dominica, a blue flag will be
hoisted.

same signals will apply, the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted
at the Police Station. Portsmouth.

,, ,, J. O. AIRD. (Excused.)
(Messrs. H,D. Shillingford and J. Bully were attending the
Fourth meeting of the Regional Economic Committee in Barbados.)
VISIT OF MR. W.H. CHINN, SOCIAL WELFARE ADVISER
TO THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES.
His Honour the Acting Administrator introduced Mr. Chinn,
the Social Welfare Adviser to the Secretary of State for the Colo-
nies, to members and welcomed him to the Colony.
His Honour informed members that Mr. Chinn was touring
the British Caribbean Colonies for the purpose of seeing things for
himself and of meeting the Social Welfare Officers of the area in
order to discuss with them personally their problems and difficul-
ties.
Mr. Chinn was recently from Barbados, where he took part in
a Conference of Social Welfare and Probation Officers at which
this Colony was represented by Mr. Roberts the Social Welfare
Officer.
Mr. Chinn in accepting His Honour's invitation to address the
Committee thanked him for the welcome accorded him and said
that he had greatly enjoyed his stay in Dominica,






He described Social Welfare as having two main functions
viz. constructive and remedial.
The constructive function consisted in the building up of a
community sense.
Where there is no special structure as seemed to be the case
here one had to begin from scratch.
The view that economic development would by itself bring
about social progress was a fallacy exemplified by the fact that
England was still suffering from the social problems caused by the
Industrial Revolution. Social Welfare was intended to redress
the balance in such conditions.
The promotion of Welfare schemes of mutual help was an
essential function of Social Welfare activity. In Africa such
schemes had become highly developed and this was owing to the
strong community sense that existed there.
Here, on the other hand, we had attempted to create a com-
munity where no community sense existed and on this assumed
community we had sought to impose certain political machinery
such as village boards which were not understood.
On the remedial side was the care of delinquents, and dis-
tressed people. This usually involved money.
Their e were however many voluntary organizations here whose
objects were good but whose functions tend to overlap. Though
in general, remedial measures which these voluntary organizations
were intended to supply, required Government financial aid for
their implementation, yet good voluntary organizations could re-
duce these to negligible amounts. There were in this Colony many
helpful ladies and this was already an asset.
He thought it was essential that Government should imme-
diately define its Social Welfare policy and formulate a programme
of Social Welfare work in order to remove misunderstandings and
to obviate criticisms by Councillors who in the absence of these
were not not in a position to estimate rightly the work being done.
On the subject of a Probation Officer Mr. Chinn thought that
a greater effort might still be made to obtain an appointment.
He thought that this Colony had a good case. He could not how-
ever give any guarantee of success inasmuch as the last word
rested with the Treasury over which the Colonial Office had no
control.
In this matter he suggested that the appointment of a Proba-
tion Officer should be antecedent to the establishment of any in,
stitution for the reception of offenders as the former would be re.
quired to advise on the planning of the latter.
He expressed the view also that the Prison should be separat-
ed from the Police, for besides the fact that the duty of the Police
was to apprehend and prosecute criminals, they knew nothing
about Prisons and their attitude to them moreover was not refor-
mative.






Mr. Chinn also spoke on Housing, the use of trained Social
Welfare personnel and such other matters directly or indirectly
connected with Social Welfare in reply to questions asked by
members.
His Honour then thanked Mr. Chinn very warmly for his
visit and also for the valuable and informative talk he gave.
274/50. INFORMAL VISIT OF PRINCESS ALICE
AND THE EARL OF ATHLONE.
His Honour informed the Committee that Her Royal Highness
Princess Alice and the Earl of Athlone would be passing through
in the S S. Ariguani due to load Bananas at Roseau or Portsmouth
or at both places on the 21st and 22nd of April, 1952. As this visit
was not official no entertainment was called for.
ADJOURNMENT.
The Committee then adjourned sine die.

Clerk of Legislative Council.
Confirmed this 25th day of April, 1952.
