TRADITION VS. BLOOD
The triangular dispute which has arisen between the elect-
ed leader of the Legislative Council of British Honduras, the
British Government and the Government of Guatemala has
been attracting widespread attention, especially in view of
the British Government's action in sending troops from Ja-
mnaica and Bermuda and of dismissing the parliamentary
leader from the Executive Council. In the face of this the
Organisation of Central American States has issued a decla-
ration, re-emphasising the Antigua Declaration and backing
Guatemala in the dispute.
There is no question that the emergence of new nations
from the colonial territories in the Ca-ibbean Area and its
littoral will call for careful handling. Recently British efforts
to bring all the British units :n the Caribbean Area into a
single Federation were only partially successful. The two
largest areas British Guiana on the coast of Stuth Ameri-
ca, and British Honduras in Central America refused to
British Guiana has a population of only 600,000 in an area
of 90,000 square miles. British Honduras has a population of
60,000 in an area of 40,000 square miles. The rest of the Bri-
tish units combined have a population of three million in
only some 12,000 square miles. Since both British Guiana and
Honduras are known to be potentially wealthy, especially in
minerals, it is to be seen why the rest of the British area re-
cognises that a Federation could be economically viable only
with the adhesion of one or both of the two mainland terri-
- But here comes the tug of war. The peoples of British
Guiana and British Honduras, while admitting strong ties
with the peoples of the British islands, especially ethnic ties,
feel equally bound to their neighbours of South and Central
America because of the same ethnic call.
The people of British Guiana for instance feel equally
bound to their ethnic neighbours of Dutch Guiana, French
Guiana, and Brazil as they do with their British neighbours
and for that matter with the French and Dutch islands as
well as Haiti.
The people of British Honduras 'are similarly placed. TIhe
tug-of-war therefore is between two loyalties the call of
tradition and the call of blood. For the moment it would seem
that the bonds of tradition are breaking down in the face of
the call of blood. The latter is made all the stronger by a
realisation of the strength which could be achieved by closer
co-operation between the peoples most vitally concerned
themselves. 1 % I
It is for this reason that the editorial comment of the Ja
maica Gleaner reproduced on this page is of interest. Fdur
years ago, on charges of a Communist plot which were never
proved, British troops were landed in British Guiana and the
elected Government dismissed. There was strong evidence
that the Government of thai time was (flirting) with the idea
of declaring its independence and had reason to believe that
it would get at least moral support from its Lajin-American
neighbours. After four years of authoritarian rule elections
were once agin permitted under a limited constitution. Tlhe
people elected the same leaders.
During these years, and because.of the heavy handed atti-
tuide of the British Government and the failure of most of
the neighboring governments of the British islands to read
aright the real struggle of the people of British Guiana, the
chances of both the mainland countries entering the Federa.
lion which was finally accepted last February, were gre atly
projudiced. It is no doubt from this knowledge that the Ja

ras. They have been sent to re-
inforce the UK's security forces
in that colony at the request of
the Governor of that country. It
is obvious that Sir Colin Thornley,
the man on the spot, must be
given precedence in his judgment
of the precautions necessary to
preserve law and order in the im-
passe that .his developed out of
the breaking-off of the economic
and political discussions betVeen
the Colonial Office and the BH
delegation in London. For %what-
ever may be the difference in pri-
vate opinions on the prickly poli-

Indian will agree that the funda-
mental basis of a democratic so-
ciety -the keeping of the peace-
must be preserved at all costs.
But %*th the sad exempli of
British Guiana in 1953 uppermost
in most minds, there is the fervent
hope that there will be no repeti-
tion of suspended constitutions in
British Honduras arising out of
the political tug-of-war between
Mr. Price, Bl's elected .lead-or,
and the Colonial Office.
It is now admitted that only The
West Indies was the loser in the
1953 BG incident; for it is clear
that the political vacuum that
persisted from then until August
last (when Dr. Jagan was return-
ed to office) was the main, perhaps
only reason why The West Indies

sion of BG. vitally important to the
economic viability of the Federa-
Happily, the political leaders of
Trinidad were alert enough after
August to take their own measu-
res on behalf of The Wast Indies
to heal the breach with BG and
had to complete its arrangements
already there are reliable indica-
tions that by the time the Fede-
ration is ready to discuss its po-
litical independence with the Bri-
tish Government around 1963, BG
will be firn)ly ensconced within
the West kidian family.
But if BG was takes on as the
prime responsibility of the Trinid-
adians, there can be no doubt that
BHI is a Jamaican responsibility.
A fair-sized block of Jamaican ca-
pital is invested in that country.
Lunmbter supplies from there form
the basis fo a trading arrangement
that can be turned to greater pro-
fit in the future. The Jamaican
colony there is already sizeable
and can be added to with equal
benefit to both countries as BH

a closer association with British

twen Britain and Guatemala, may
seem drawn to' their continental

however illdgicql it appears from

roots. But no such impracticable

We had some instances here of
Negro womjnen being grabbed, shak-

to get off the streets. So far as I

some did occur. Some servants be-

Fortunately, we qame through
our most difficult period with no

Are We Too Hard On The Tourist ?
VISITORS FIND NO trace siderable unfairness has become I-or three weeks of frentic sight-
of the country's recent politi-
cal troubles which put a crimp
in Haiti's thriving tourist bu-
siness. Now that the troubles
are over, tourist and business
leaders look for even more
than the 60,000 tourist who
came here last year.
Robert Ruark who spent a
merry time here back in 1950
when Tourism was a pup has
devoted some kind thoughts
to that wonderful, interesting
individual the Tourist.
Said it has been my good for-
tune, over a considerable num-
her of year, to have traveled ex-
tensively and to have livdd in
a 'heavy portion of other peo-
ple's real estate, I am bc-gin-
ning to tender if everybody
(myself included) isn't a bit too
mockingly severe on the tourist.
It's awfully easy to be funny
at the expense of people who
have saved painstakingly for
what is likely to be their one
and only adventure in braving
a foreign land, a strange langua
.ge, and even more peculiar lo-
,.Tourist' in Europe with con-
almost synonymous with eAme-
rican and csucker.t In some
countries, France especially, the
tourist* is treated with a con-
tempt surpassing rudeness.
The word tourist trap, has
come to mean some dive where
the accommodations, entertain
ment and food is fit only for
the shorttime traveler The
*trap; is shunned and sneered
at by the natives and even more
so by the habitual expatriates.
who affect a shudded when their
own touring compatriots are
mentioned. These latter poseurs,
event when they can pay their
bills, weary me.
The tourist, poorffellow, sticks
out in the crowd. He can't help
it, because he is festooned with
cameras, buys postcards, compa
res prices, is apt to be unres-
trained Lwhen confronted with
the local alcohols, and more or
less constantly refers to the dif

There is no difference bet-
- ween the American in Rome, the
German in France, the Swiss in
Portugal, the Englishman in
Spain. If they seem rude, noisy,
and appear to travel forever in
flocks, it is because they are
uncertain- frightned, overawed
by the language barrier, cr'oWed
by the tourist agencies by the
currency and, after a bit, sick
and tired of being taken for pi-
geons by every hustler who pops
out of a greasy alley.
The average tourist is some-
body who has saved and scrimp
ed for abrief fling at foreign pas
tures, who is traveling on a bud
get, and who must pack all the
places and sensations into two
te an extra day in Aries chasing
seeing and directed activity.
Why shouldn't he carry a ca-
mera to snap the Coliseum and
"the Arc de Triomphe? Why
shouldn't he buy postcards to
send to the fellows at the office
and to Aunt Gussie? Why shoul-
dn't he complain loudly when
some spiv tries to sell him a wor
thless gimcrack for 10 times its
value, who steers h'm to clip
joints and harasses him cons-
tanlly on the streets, in the bars
and restaurants and shops?
To me, the greatest sinners

they are necessary evils- are
some of the conducted tours,
with cynical tour-leaders who
treat their 'wards like cattle.
only sneer at their pardonable
ignorance and bark at them as
if they were delinquent children

san-me native guide, set down in
his purple suit and funny ac-
cent in the home town of the
people he loathes while guiding,
would be. a pathetically ludi
crous figure, prone to panic.
If it is or any comfort to tile

New right from the road up, the Victor heralds a new
generation of cars... lower, swifter, more efficient. The
low roofline of the Victor is only 58 inches high! Though
built so low to the road, headroom is generous and ground
clearance ample. This very modern design pays big
dividends in easy driving. Weight is kept low and there,
is a new flat-ride suspension system. So the Victor shows
remarkable reluctance to roll on corners. Sure-footed
safety is designed right into the Victor.
Powered by a new, deep-sklirt ,square- engine, the Victor
is very much a top gear car-with swift, smooth top gear
acceleration from walking pace into the middle seventies.
This top gear flexibility cuts petrol consumption, too.
Because the Victor's "square, engine performs so efficient
ly throughout its whole speed range, it puts the Victor far
ahead of its class for all-round fuel economy.
Once again it's Vauxhall for value with an citing new
car at an excitingly low price!
There's value in ever aspect of the Victor's very advanc-
ed design: in its new, lows-sw.vept good looks and pano-
ramic vision: in its new flat-ride suspension, and its new
petrol-saving -square engine.
You must see-and try- this new Vauxhall. It's in our
show-room now awaiting your personal inspection.

ACCENT YOUR PERSONALITY WITH PERFUME _. a ., r
What a lovely time of year is
this month before Christmas! It
makes a woman want to dress as
gaily as she feels, and wear all
her prettiest things, including her
most enchanting perfume. For she
knows that an attractive appea-
rance suggests to the world that
she is a bright, vibrant person.
If you have been making 'the
mistake of believing that perfu-
me is for wearing only on special
occasions, it's time you realized
that theory is just plain -old
hat.. Perfume is no more meant !o
be *saved" than lipstick, which,
in itself, is good clue of when ardl
how to wear fragance. Wear it
whenenever you wear lipstick,
and re-apply it just as often, for
scent rarely stays on the skin
longer than three to four hours.
,Now, once youve decided to
wear perfume daily, (and this is
a must for every lovely woman !)
the next question is what type to
wear. So me women like variety
in their fragrances... enjoy wear-
ing a different perfume for each
mood and occasion. If you're a
woman of varied temperament,
you should own a 'wardrobe of
fraganees which could include
as many as five or six different
perfume types. These might be,
a floral bouquet to match the
young feeling that goes with an
outdoor game or a,ride in the
country- an oriental or semi-
oriental perfume ,to accent the
glamorous feeling of going -on
the town. or to a Country Club
Dance a woody mossy-leafy
perfume for cool, quiet evenings
with family and friends.., a mo
dern perfume to complement the
chic of a new suit a single flo.
ral for those times spent with
'the girls.. It is easy to see how
the multiplicity of modern wo-
man's activities call for owning a
variety of fragrances to comple-
ment those varicrl pursuits.
And for the woman who pre;'ura
wearing one perfume as a kind of
signature, she might like the clas-
sic beauty of a modern blend ...
a perfume that is as right when
worn with a sweater and skirt as one can notice that small amount.
a silk cocktail suit.
There is no formula for telling
the type of perfume that any wo-
man should wear. The only and
best way in which to determine
that is to wear perfume that ple-
ases You. The result will be that
it will please those around you,
Instead, apply perfume to all the
pulse spots wrists, crook of the
arms, temples, throat, and behind
the ears. Then spray the perfume
all about you with an atomizer so
that a fine mist clings to your
clothes. In this way, you will sur
round yourself in a feminine, fra-
grant aura that will be noticed

this form of propulsion is going

Extreme attitudes hold no pro-

that if we really stand for liberty
