MISCELLANEOUS NOTICES.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY COM-
MITTEE FOR COMMONWEALTH
STUDIES

PREPARATORY COURSE IN TROPICAL
AGRICULTURE-3rd--15th July, 1961.

The Course is primarily designed to
help those who are proceeding to the
tropics for the first time to take up
agricultural posts. Most such people
will already have some training in gen-
eral agricultural science; but inquiries
from people without this qualification
will also be welcomed, if they think they
will benefit from the course. The
course should prove useful to newly-ap-
pointed staff of governments, missionary
societies, business firms and others.
Topics on the course will include:
tropical climates and soils, soil conserva-
tion, tropical crops and livestock, the
economics of tropical agriculture and
agricultural extension work. The method
of study will be by lectures, demonstra-
tions, discussion groups, reading (for
which excellent library facilities are
available), and written work if desired.
Participants in the course will have to
pay nothing except the expenses of their
accommodation in Oxfbrd. Accom-


modation for a limited number can be
offered at the Commonwealth Services
Club, 3, South Parks Road.
If the demand for this initial course
justifies -it, similar courses (for which
fees will be charged) will be run in sub-
sequent years.
All enquiries should be addressed to
Mr. G. B. Masefield, Department of
Agriculture, Parks Road, Oxford.

dents holding the Jr. Cambridge

year's duration.

ritories for technical and voca-
tional training for the academic

CUSTOMS NOTICE

ADVERTISING MATTER AND COMMERCIAL
SAMPLES.

The attention of Merchants and Im-
porters is drawn to the subject of the
treatment of Commercial samples and
Advertising matter.
Advertising matter of -.o commercial
value, and patterns and samples of negli-
gible value, are exempted from duty in
the St. Vincent Customs Tariff, items
13 and 30 of Table B.
There has, however, always existed
some doubt among Importers as to how
advertising matter and samples on the
whole should be dealt with, and the fol-
lowing paragraph is an attempt to
clarify further Customs interpretation
and method of treatment.
Bona fide samples of no intrinsic value
and advertising matter which can be
used only to advertise products, are ad-
missible free of duty. If, however,
samples do have some commercial value
or use, they should be treated as dutiable
goods. Similarly, advertising matter
which, though used to advertise products
or manufacturing firms and the like, is
of use, and which if allowed in duty
free would tend to compete with the
ordinary "Commercial" commodity,
should bear duty. In cases where no
value is stated for Customs purposes,
this would be assessed by the Collector
of Customs.
JAMES H. D. COX,
Collector of Customs and Excise.

POLICE NOTICE.

PEDESTRIAN CROSSING.

It has been observed that motorists
are not assisting Pedestrians in the use
of Pedestrian Crossings in Kingstown,
and Pedestrians are very hesitant to
use these Crossings.
In several cases brought to notice of
Police, cars have stopped to permit
Pedestrians to cross and other cars
have driven on the Crossing without
paying any attention to the Pedestrians
making use of the Crossing.
The attention of the Public is drawn
to S.R. & O. No. 6 of 1956 which reads
as follows:-
"Pedestrian Crossing: A Pedes-
trian Crossing is that portion of a
road contained between two yellow
lines marked on the surface of the
road, such lines running parallel to
each other and leading from one side
of such road to the other. The ap-
proach to a pedestrian crossing is in-
dicated by a traffic sign consisting of
a yellow circular board with the
words "Please cross here" printed
thereon in black letters.
Drivers of Vehicles to stop if ped-
estrian walking within crossing. The
driver of every vehicle shall stop his
vehicle at the first line of a crossing
if there is a pedestrian going from
one side of the road to the other
within such crossing.
Drivers of vehicles approaching
crossing to stop if necessary. The
driver of every vehicle approaching
a crossing shall, unless he can see
that there is no pedestrian thereon,
proceed at such speed as to be able,
if necessary, to stop before reaching
such crossing.
Pedestrian to have precedence
over vehicular traffic at crossing. The
driver of every vehicle at or ap-
proaching a crossing where traffic is
not for the time being controlled by
a police constable, shall allow free
and uninterrupted passage to any
pedestrian who is within such cross-
ing, and every such pedestrian shall
have precedence over all vehicular
traffic at such crossing.
Drivers of vehicles not to stop up-
on crossing. No driver of a vehicle
shall cause such vehicle or any part
thereof to stop upon any crossing, un-
less either-
(a) he is prevented from proceed-
ing by circumstances beyond
his control, or
(b) It is necessary for him to stop
to avoid an accident.













206 SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 4 JULY, 1961.-(No. 35).


Pedestrians not to remain upon
crossing longer than necessary. No
pedestrian shall remain upon any
crossing longer than is necessary for
the purpose of passing from one side
of the road to the other with reason-
able despatch.
Penalty. Any person who commits
a breach of any of these Regulations
shall be liable on summary conviction
to a fine not exceeding ten dollars".
The Chief of Police has issued in-
structions that all motorists found of-
fending will be prosecuted.
