POLICE NOTICE

WARNING
The Polce are charged with the re-
sponsibility of collecting. fees for many
different licences. These fees provide an
important item in the General Revenue
of the Colony and the non-payment of
such fees not only embarrasses Govern-
ment in balancing ts Budge t, but
renders those persons who fail to pay, at
the time such licences are due, liable to
prosecution and p u n ishment by the
Courts.
This Notice is therefore to give
WARNING
that SEVEN DAYS after the publica-
tion of this Notice, all nimebers of the
Force will be charged with special
instructions to track, report anid where
necessary prosecute all persons who have
evade or are attempting to evade the
various laws regarding licensing of
Motor Vehicles,
Drivers,
Radios (including Radio in motor
cars),
Bicycles,
Boats (Passenger and otherwise),
Animals (Dogs, Asses, Etc.),
Firearms, Etc.. Etc.
In the past, some latitude has been
given in the time during which pay-
ments have had to be made but now that
a special appeal is being made by Gov-
ernment, this Department will have no
option but to enforce the law and prose-
cLte in all cases where payment is not
made at the statutory time. Further-
more, those persons who do not comply
with the law will render themselves
liable to heavy penalties and in some
cases the Police Prosecuting Officers
may even ask the Courts to impose the
maximum penalties. The Police have
no wish to take drastic action, but the
obligation to take out licenses at the
correct times is solely YOUES and you
will only have )ourself to blame if you
find yourself before the Conit. You
will be well advised, therefore, to check
at once as to the licencEs which should
be in your possession, and if you have
inot yet taken out the licence or licences
you should have done, do so immediate-
ly. I-norance of the l v: is no excuse.

Superintendent of Police.

31st January, 63.

Sir,
I have the honour to submit the following Report on the Vital Statistics of
Saint Vincent for the year 1951.

POPULATION.
2. The estimated population of the Colony on the 31st December, 1951, was
70,140, consisting of 32,497 males and 37,643 females. This is arrived at by adding
to the estimated population at 31st December, 1950, the number of births registered
between that date and the end of the year under preview, and deducting therefrom
the total number of deaths which occurred in the same period, and by adding the
excess of immigration over emigration during the year, as shown in Table 1.
3. The population to the square mile of the Colony based on the estimated
population on the 31st December 1951, was 467.

MARRIAGES.
4. 197 marriages were registered during the year, being a decrease of 37
compared with the preceding year: this gives a rate of 2.81 per 1,000 of the
estimated population.

175 bachelors married spinsters
8 bachelors married widows
11 widowers married spinsters
1 widower married a widow

6. Of the husbands 5 and of the wives 55, were under the age of 21.

Seventh Day Adventist, (making a total of 18) Ministers of Religion on the
Register at the end of the year.
8. The 107 marriages registered, which were celebrated by Marriage Officers
of the several religious denominations and Civil Registrars, are shown in Table 7.
9. Of the 394 persons married, 10 Bridegrooms and 7 Brides were unable to
sign their names.

BIRTHS.
10. The births registered during the year numbered 2,980, being 1497 males
and 1433 females. This gives a rate of 41.77 per 100 of the estimated population.

the females 490, of the 1991 illegitimate births, the males numbered 080 and the

IITTRODUCTORY REMARKS.
As this was the first meeting since the appointment of the Board for 1953, the
Chairman welcome, the men-bers. He said that he was sorry the Education
Officer was unable tc attend thuj meeting.

CONFIRMATION OF MINUTES.
The minutes of the meeting held on the 13th July, 1951, which had been
previously cirLulatec to members, were confirmed.

BUSINESS ARISING OUT OF THE MINUTES.
In connection with the Annual Examination of the Primary Schools, the
Chairman enquired if there had been any recent complaints with regard to the
ceritres for holding the examination. Members said they had heard none, and the
Inspector of Schools explained that pupils were examined in their own schools
wherever there was difficulty in getting to a proposed Centre.

ANDERSON CUPS COMPETITION, 1953.
The Chairman told the members that ten cups were given by Mr. R. M.
Anderson, M.B.E., to be awarded to the Primary Schools for Oral and Written
English and that the Board of Education met every year to make arrangements for
rthe holding of the examination for the award of these cups, but the Board did not
meet last year and therefore no examination was held. He also informed the
Board that in a conversation with the Education Officer the latter had suggested
that it would be more convenient for the Board to hand over the arrangements for
this examination to the Education Department. The other members saw no reason
why this could not be done, and therefore the following Resolution was passed :-
"That subject to the approval of Mr. Anderson, the Board recommends the
handing over of the arrangements of the Anderson Cups Competition to the
Department of Education."







Proposed : the Archdeacon, Seconded : the Chairman. It was carried nem. con-
It was suggested that the examination should still be conducted by four
examiners.
CORONATION SCHOLARSHIPS.
The Chairman proposed that a recommendation be made to Government for
the award of Coronation Scholarships : Four-two for, boys and two for girls-
from Primary to Secondary Schools, and one scholarship for Higher Education
tenable at the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture or the University College of
the West Indies. This proposal was seconded by Miss Byron and carried
unanimously.
OTHER BUSINESS.
The Chairman expressed his appreciation of Mr. Hadley's scheme for the
advancement of Teachers by the holding of Saturday Classes and Evening Classes
and said he was glad to see that the Teachers were taking advantage of these
Classes. The Archdeacon asked that the Board's pleasure be recorded.
Primary Schools Regulations : Mr. Keane brought up the subject of the
revision of the Primary Schools Regulations. The Board felt that this matter
should not be discussed in the absence of the Education Officer and advised that he
should be asked whether there was any likelihood of a revision in the near future.
The Inspector of Schools said that the Education Officer was quite aware of the
necessity for revising the Regulations and had already taken steps in connection
with this matter.
Primary Schools Vacations : Father Ganteaume asked if consideration could
be given to fixing Primary Schools Vacations as they were under the former
system. The Inspector of Schools explained that it was the Teachers themselves
who requested the change and so far as he understood, Teachers in the other
Islands would like to adopt the present St. Vincent system.

ADJOURNMENT.
As there was no further business the Chairman thanked the members and the
meeting was adjourned, sine die.

K. MARSHALL,
Secretary.

Confirmed this 7th day of July, 1953.
