GOVERNOR'S APPEAL FOR FUNDS
FOR WESTMINSTER ABBEY
THE Prime Minister has launched an
appeal for one million pounds for the
repair, preservation and upkeep of West-
minster Abbey. The Abbey is one of the
world's great churches. In it our Queen
was crowned on June 2nd as Kings and
Queens have been crowned there for centu-
ries. It is a shrine where generations of
famous men are buried or commemorated.
It stands near the Houses of Parliament
at the centre of the Commonwealth, and
long ago the House of Commons used to
meet in the Abbey Chapter House.
In this Coronation Year, when we here
are also looking forward to a British
Caribbean Federation as an increasingly
important part of the Commonwealth, the
appeal has been launched to ensure that
the Abbey, which has fostered much that
is best in western civilisation, should be
passed on worthily to the future. I ask all
of you who can help with some gift, how
ever small it may be, to make your contri
bution.
Subscriptions should be lodged at
Barclays Bank and marked Westminster
Abbey Appeal Fund.

awaiting the Administrator's authori-
ty, up to a limit of 10 for each Dis-
trict. Just as' the Administrator will
authorise urgent expenditure in anti-

NOTICE.


HURRICANE WARNING.

1 At the beginning of the hurricane
season and generally in the month of









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, THURSDAY

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 secure .t A-
3. For the inform onf 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.
DOMINICA.
The following signal will be made
from Fort Young, Roseau, as a warn-
ing in event of probable approach of a
hurricane or severe.gales
CAUTIONARY SIGNAL.
One gun or rocket will be fired at
any time of the day or night, and a
red flag having a black centre will be
hoisted on the signal staff by day, and
a red lantern by night.
DANGER SIGNAL.
Two guns or rockets will be fired in
succession, and two red flags with
black centres will be hoisted by day
and two red lanterns by night.
When the signal is given, steps
should,at once be taken to secure pre-
mises on shore and vessels in port
against impending danger.
CANCELLING SIGNAL.
On improvement of weather condi-
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.
With regard to Portsmouth, the
same signals will apply, the necessary
flags and red lanterns being hoisted

No 222
PRICE CONTROLS


IT has been decided that with effect
from July 15th, 1953, price control should
be removed in the case of a number of
articles, the chief of which are textiles
hardware appliances, tobacco, wines and
spirituous liquors and drugs. The prices
of imported foodstuffs and certain items
such as agricultural implements, fishing
tackle and slates will continue to be con-
trolled ; stock and poultry feed have been
added to the controlled list A consolidated
and revised Prices Control Order No. 17 of
1953, which will shortly be published
indicates the articles the prices of which
will continue to be controlled.
2. This decision has been taken in view
of the considerations that supplies of most
goods are now adequate so that shortages
due to inability of suppliers to fill orders
need no longer be expected, and that it is
reasonable to anticipate that freer compe-
tition will operate to reduce prices. It
should be clearly understood by consumer
and distributor alike that price levels of
all goods will continue to be carefully
observed and that the Government will
not hesitate to re-impose controls should
that step prove necessary. The new Prices
Cot trol Order gives the Competent
Authority power to verify the pricing of
all goods, whether price-controlled or not;
with a view to determining whether retail
prices are at an unduly high.level. Dietri'
butors are urged to ensure that stocks
imported will be adequate to meet local
demands.
