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

without authority, provided that. they


can show that the expenditure was

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 fromNorth-
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 theindication 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.

proach of a hurricane or severe gales

one of $288,000 for further air survey
work in British Guiana and Jamaica.
A contract has been given for the air

for an. investigation into the. possibilities
of hydro-electric power
The expedition will move to Jamaica,
where 1,30(1 square miles remain to be

returning later to complete operations.
Air Tele.ommuii.cations
A grant of $8,640 is authorized in
favour of British I-onduras for the pro.
vision of VHF' ra:io equipment in the
control tower at Stanley Field airport,
lelize. This will enable two-way com-
munication to be maintained with the
increasing number of small aircraft
operating on charter from this field, with.
out the need for them to carry excessively
heavy equipment.
A $11 186 scheme for St. Vincent pro-
vides for the appointment for three ears
of a matron to the Colonial Hospital. She
will undertake the training of nurses as
well as overall responsibility for admit is"
trative duties.
St. Lucia is to receive a further $3,946
for the constiuetion of feeder roads.
Smne 135,500 were granted for this pur-
pose a year ago.
$2 997,867 This Year
The approval of these four new schemes
brings the total of Development and
Welfare aid, to the British Webt Indies in
1952 to $2,99',867. The total since the
present Acts came into operation on the
1st April, 1946 is now $21,652,719.

ment of Agriculture, with certain related
