BELIZE, May 5.

The Government to-day after
six weeks decided to permit the
People’s Committee to hold a
meeting in the Public Square on
condition that the Committee sub-
mit to the Government the names
of the proposed speakers and the
subjects for discussion. The meet-
ing is limited until 8 to 10 p.m,
with no band or other form of
musical assistance in attendance.

Last week the Government
banned a General Workers’ Union
Annual Conference meeting
planned for Battlefield Square.
During the past two weeks heavy
press and public opinion urged the
Government to repeal the Emerg-
ency Act declared on February 13
during the anti-devaluation crisis
on the ground that there has been
no unrest since mid-March.

United States in a new

SATURDAY, MAY

Workers
Walk Out

IN BUFNOS AIRES

BUENOS AIRES, May 5.

Workers in all “frigorificos”
walked out. in orderly fashion at
midnight, thus bringing to a half
all activity in packing ‘houses
throughout the country and also
in branch houses. Police reinforce-
ments were on hand to prevent
disturbances while “frigorificos”
assigned administrative employees
to take over the maintenance of
freezing chambers with a view to
preventing damage to equipment,
which would have been caused by
stopping the machinery.



The strike, which was called
by the Meat Packers Federation
is scheduled to last until packers
are willing to discuss new work-
ing conditions.

The strike will immediately
halt meat loadings to Britain and
will also affect domestic provis
jon of cold and canned meats.
Sausages and other “frigorifico”
by-products although carcass meat
supplies for home consumption
are not affected since State-owned
“frigorificos” and slaughter houses
which are not included in the
strike will be able to make up for
the small volume of carcass meat
which foreign “frigorificos” nor-
mally supply to the home market.

Pro-Government newspapers,
which normally support the strike
movements, today give minimum
attention to the “frigorifico” strike,
despite its importance.

This was taken to mean that
the “frigorifico” strike is not
favoured by the pro-Government
general, Del Trabjo, and it is pre-
sumed that authorities will call
heads of the Meat Workers Feder-
ation in an effort to settle the
strike as soon as possible.

Although workers are striking
against foreign-owned “frigorifi-
cos.” these have heen “subsidised”
to the tune of about 30,000,000
pesos a montb for the past in order
to cover the deficit in steer meat
production so that any increase in
their operating cost as a result of
new wage demands will automati
cally mean an increased subsidy,
from the Government.

Meanwhile the port workers’
strike, which has been declared
illegal by Government and
denounced as unpatriotic by CGT
continued today although incom-
pletely since it is estimated that
30 to 40% of the workers had
returned to work.

On the other hand, workers in
food packing industries, whom
the CGT support, are continuing
their strike strongly.



B.G. Businessman
Gets Seven Years

for Arson

GEORGETOWN, May 2.

Henry Algoo, 47-year-old Ma-
haica businessman» was sent to
prison for 7 years penal servitude
on Tuesday after a jury had found
him guilty of maliciously setting
fire to his $15,000 business pre-
mises which was completely de-
stroyed by fire during the early
hours of April 29. 1949—9 days
after his insurance of the premises
was increased by $2,200. The
verdict of the jury was by a 10—2
majority after deliberating for 2
hours. Mr. Justice E, R. L. Ward
presided,

The Crown's case was based on
the allegation that business at the
“Grand Central’ owned by Algoo
had declined considerably and
Algoo deliberately set fire to it in
order to collect insurance money
with a view to starting a new con-
eern. With this object in mind,
the Crown further alleged that

Algoo removed practically all the
goods from Grand Central to Vic-
toria, Belfield,

Henry VIII's
Wine Cellar
Leaves Whitehall

LONDON.
King Henry VIII’s roomy wine
cellar in Whitehall Gardenhs,

weighing some 800 tons, has been
moved bodily 43 feet from its
original position in one of the
most unique engineering opera-
tions in history

The ancient monument, a crypt
62 feet long, 32 feet wide and 22
feet 6 inches high, was moved to
its new site in one piece and re-
sited 20 feet below its original
level because it interfered with
the building of new Government
offices.

British experts did not want to
demolisk such a distinctive build-
ing with its fine brick vaulting
ond four central stone columns, as
it was still so well preserved after
four centuries,

The wine céllar was formerly
underneath the main floor of the
Tudor palace (Whitehal)] Palace)
used by the King with many
wives

If allowed to remain in its origi-
nal position it would have hin-
dered building operations and
furthermore would have projected
30 feet beyond the building line
and would not have blended with
any architectural feature.

Today the cellar is hidden in
the basement almost next to a
boiler house, When the office
building is completed the cellar
will be open to visitors by special!
arrangement.

The moving was done by con-
structing a steel framework in-
side to take the weight off the
vaulted roof and make the interior
as rigid as possible. The cellar was
then. underpinned with concrete
and steel girders and mounted on
steel rollers, so that it could be
pulled by eight men using screw
jacks at the rate of 8 feet a day.

The lowering operation was car-
ried out by means of 186 16-ton
jacks. The cellor was lowered
only a sixteenth of an inch at a
time.

When the cellar slowly moved
horizontally and was lowered to
its new site not one brick was
disturbed and the few original
cracks are still. there but not
widened. INS

burning, ali
flying boat,

A new k erosene
metal, medium-range
capable of cruising at 500 m.p.h.
and carrying 74 passengers, has
been designed by Saunders-Roe
Ltd., of Cowes, Isle of Wight.

The flying boat, which will be
known as the “Duchess”, will be
equipped with six “Ghost” en-
gines. It is claimed to be the most
economical medium-range aircraft
in the world.

An official of the firm said the
cost per passenger mile is just
over a penny for routes of 1,300—
1,500 miles and two cents per pas-
senger mile on distances of 2,000
miles,

The cost per ton mile is also a
record at just over 14 cents per
ton mile for 1,300-—-1,500 miles and
about 21 cents for 2,000 miles.

The aircraft will have an all-up
weight of 130,000 Ibs., wing span
of 135 ft. 6 ins., and length
124 ft. 6 ins.

Fuel will be carried in the main-
plane and the passenger accom-

of

modation will be pressurized and
air conditioned,
Tasman Empire Airways are

considering the aircraft for jour-
neys such as that between Aus-
tralia and New Zealand.

Captain Clarke, managing direc -
tor of Saunders-Roe, is on a visit
to New Zealand in connection with
the newly-designed flying boat

Saunders-Roe are now engaged

on the completion of the “Prin-
cess” flying boats, the long-range
commercial craft built to carry

100 passengers on long stage jour-
ne such as the North Atlantic
crossing. Three years ago the firm
produced the first ever jet fiving

never had much truck with the

But an order is an order and
so IT went to the Pig and Whistle

“Budget beer” with the three addi
tional degrees of “oomph” in it

Before 1 got my elbows on the
bar I checked with the Brewer
Saciety, whose syokesman ex
plained that on an average the
new beers are only ten per cert
below the strength of the average
pre-war beer,

He said the idea that “budge
beer” would be only half the pre
war strength was probably causec
by a misunderstanding of Sir
Stafford’s remark that the increass
would bring the average gravits
to half-way between its presen
strength and the pre-war strength

=
Publie Utilities

OPINION in Barbados has for some years
past been divided on the future of the
ed fompanics, One group has

at all Public Utility Companies
should be nationalised and run by the State.
Others have felt that private enterprise
has done good work in the past and if any
control were required, the supervision
of a Public Utilities Board would be more
conducive to efficiency.

The latter point of view seems to have
gained greater favour, and His Excellency
has given notice that a Bill for setting up
such a Board will be placed before the Leg-
islature during the present session.

It is to be hoped that the composition of
the Board will be given careful thought.
The interference of politics into every
corner of Barbadian life is not a complete
blessing. The Board to be useful must have
wide powers and the exercise of those
powers must not be influenced in any way
by political considerations.

‘it has not ye’ cen revealed what pow-
ers the Board will have but if it is based
on the Canadian precedents they will in-
clude the regulation of charges, the safe-
guarding of fair distribution and the in-
vestigation of complaints.

In Canada the Board has not operated
as an arbitrator between the Company and
its employees and that is right as long as
the principle of private ownership is
recognised, The function of the Board has
been to regulate the interests of the Com-
pany and the public.

The Board should have power to insist
on expansion and it is to be hoped that it
will be able to obtain for the Public Utility
Companies the Currency and licences ne-
cessary for the purchase of machinery and
equipment for expansion, from the country
best able to supply them.

The recent difficulties of the Electricity
‘Corporation have been due to break-downs
in their plant and although public criticism
has been directed to other matters, the
principal cause for dissatisfaction has been
the partial cessation of the supply of cur-
rent.

Now there remains a large number of
houses which require electricity and which
the Company is not yet in a position to
satisfy. Action must be taken to give every
facility to the Company to obtain the
machinery by which they shall be in a
position to satisfy the demands made upon
them.

In Barbados, one of the matters which
has always exacerbated public opinion is
the lack of information which they face
on matters vital to the country. A Public
Utility Board can be made the vehicle of
information so that members of the public
can gather their information from reliable
sources,

The Barbados Telephone Company also
requires expansion. Good work has been
done by them in extending the dial system
to country parishes but there are many
would-be subscribers in districts nearer to
town who have been waiting for many
months to have a telephone installed.

Closer co-operation between Govern-
ment, through a Public Utilities Board and
the Company may facilitate their efforts at
extending their field of operations.

The Gas Company has given good service
to the community but their future is over-
shadowed by the refusal of the House of
Assembly to pass a Bill under which the
Company would be enabled to supply
Natural Gas to consumers at a reasonable
rate. Because of this uncertainty the Com-
pany cannot be blamed if they do not un-
dertake greater expansion or are unable to
reduce the cost of supply.

The people of Barbados are not unmind-
ful of the great difficulties faced by the
Utility Companies. It is their hope that the
formation of a Public Utility Board will
help to create those conditions in which the
Companies -will be able to give the best
service to the community.



OUR. READERS SAY:

LIFE ON 5/- A WEEK U.S. llas £230

i

| We should give the old people
| a cost-of-living bonus, as has
been done in so many other cases.
It is necessary to say again
very emphatically that in these
days of high prices it is not pos-

sible to make out in even the Crees (even
it

poorest manner on 5/- a week.

And in and around Bridgetown a charity)
good many of the pensioners have fundamental

to pay 2/- a week, or even 3/-,
for room-rent, It is a mystery
how they get through at all. They
ean only do so by begging, and
the kindness of neighbours, or by
the small gifts of past employers

and the help of kind-hearted folk
who finance the charities of the
churches and other organizations.
But altogether in many cases it

adds up to. very bare and uncer-
tain support. It is most unfor-
tunate that the increase of the
pension last year to 5/- is coun-
teracted so positively by the high
cost of almost everything. And
still prices are rising.

But what should be the amount
of the cost-of-living bonus? I
suggest a shilling a week, and I
feel sure we could manage that.

The proposal goes counter to
my previous point about the big
expenditure on pensions already,
and the doubt whether the island
can bear a further increase under
this head. But our revenue is
rising steadily and substantially
—it is three times the figure of
ten years ago, we are told. And
there are good prospects of fur-
ther increase: only this morning,
as I write, the Advocate declared
that we have had a good tourist
season, and judging by the con-
stant announcements of comings
and goings that is a correct sum-
ming up to date, in spite of com-
plaints about lack of advertise-
ment and encouragement for this
valuable asset.

Anyway we have tp face the dis-
tressful fact that a large number of

us as an inescapable duty. If
it should mean increased taxa-
tion, though i do not think so,
then, as Mr. Mottley exclaimed,
“let there be increased taxation.”

I propose that we should per-
mit our oid people who are able
to go on doing light-work and
earn up to 4/- or 5/- a week,
without including it in the compu-
tations under the head cf the
Means Test, but regarding it as

Rev. F. GODSON,
M.B.E.

This boon is now provided for
in the Mother Country, I under-
stand. Pensioners are allowed to
work for as much as 20/- a week
without interfering with the pen-
sion, which is now actually 26/-
—their figures are vastly and
necessarily bigger than ours, of
course, (But I believe the age for
the free-gift pension is still 7)
years), But
earn more than 20/-, the surplus
is correspondingly deducted from
the pension; and the pensioner is
required to make a weekly de-
claration. Similar arrangements
should be made here: it stands
to reason that if an old person



Hy Rev. F.Goedson M.B.E.

got a good position and was able
to earn a real living, or a sub-
stantial wage, that would oper-
ate to suspend, or at least modify

the pension, which had been
granted at a time of illness or
unemployment.

Now would it not be immensely
better for pensioners to go on
doing a little work, if able, than
to idle around with half support
and have to bes:. Or perhaps to
work surreptitiously and against
the pension law, and with a con-
sciousness, maybe, of obtaining
small sums by dishonest untruth-
ful means.

Besides, they could do useful
light work, if no more, in the
home or yard or garden, etce.,
work which at present house-
holders find it very difficult to
get done, or which remains un-
done,

Finally, coupled with the above
concession 1 suggest that the Old
Age Pension Committees should
be given authority to issue short-
term Tickets to applicants who
are likely to go back to work,
tickets for, say 4 or 6 weeks.
‘Then such a_ pensioner would
have to return at the end of that
short and report his or her
position and earnings. If ‘nothing
doing’ the Ticket would be re-
newed. If on the other hand work
had been taken and the earnings
did not exceed the 4/- or 5/- per-
mitted, well and good, but should
they do so the amount of pension
would be suitably adjusted, or
suspended altogether until per-
manent qualification was attain-

DESIRE MEETS A THRUM-EYED PRIMROSE
By Bernard Wicksteed

|
STOKE GABRIEL (Devon),

HERE we are on a fine sunny

day in spring showing England
to KYX 2. our promising post-
war car, and for her first run
we've chosen the old beat down

to Devon.

I keep telling KYX 2, or Desire
as we call her in the family, what
a lucky car she is. Here she is,
stuffed with happy people rolling
through the lanes of Devon in the
sunshine of an English spring.
Before we've finished with her,
Desire should be an authority on
her native land, for we are going
to show her all the things she’d
have missed had she been sent
abroad for export—the things
that go to make up England.

Lark Song

WE are going to show her pubs
(at least, the outside of them),
thatched cottages, flowers in the
hedgerows, birds, market towns
and cathedral cities, people at
work, and rivers where the best
fish lie.

I once knew an Englishman in
Australia who had a gramophone
record of a lark singing at dawn.
It was a simple bit of recording,
but he used to play it for hours
on end, till the tears ran down
his cheeks and made pools in the
dust at his feet.

Desire will hear the lark for
herself. She'll hear the barn owl
in the ruined tower at night, and
the country church bells on Sun-
day morning.

| Just now we are introducing
her to primroses. England with-
out primroses in April is. unthink-
able, and yet hundreds of cars
leave these shores every day
without ever having experienced
the ancient custom of taking the
family out primrosing.

Here in Devon the banks and
the edges of the woods are yellow
with their flowers, and as one of
my boys so rightly says, “They
make you feel sort of happy, don’t
they?”

Besides picking them and being
made happy by them, have you
ever considered the story of their
life?



The primrose (Primula vulgaris)
is only a humble country flower
but it comes from a very good
family called the Primulaceae.
The name goes back to the
Romans, you know.

Party Flower

THERE'S nothing wrong with
being called vulgaris. It refers to
their abundance, not their man-
ners. Indeed, they've been anh
emblem of Tory respectability for
generations.

They joined the Conservative
Party at the time of Disraeli.
The primrose was his faveurite
flower, and Queen Victoria sent
him a bunch every year for his
birthday. ig

Neither of them knew that the
party was harbouring a plant with
a political secret. The leaves of
the primrose branch from the root
and not the stem. You mustn’t
tell Lord Woolton or the Primrose
League this, but the botanical
word for such leaves is “radical”.

Darwin studied the love+life of
primroses,

In the language of botany, they
hybridise very readily. The poly-
anthus is one of the results. Its
ancestors were a gay primrose and
a cowslip that slipped once too
often.

Two Kinds

IF you take a dozen primroses,
all apparently the same, and look
at them closely you will find that
half the flowers are different from
the other half.

One lot have a ‘tuing in u.°
centre that looks like a green
glass-eye. This is the stigma or
end of the pistil. The other lot
have a group of five little yellow
things covered in pollen, They
are named stamens.

Flowers of the first kind are
called pin-eyed and of the second
thrum-eyed.

Now split them down the centre
and you'll see that the pin-eyed
pistil-packing momma also has
five stamens, but they are down
at the bottom where the nectar
is. And the one with the stamens
at the top has a pistil at the
bottom that’s more like a sawn-
off shotgun. It is all an e’aborate
device to encourage cross-
breeding, and so produce bigger
and more beautiful primroses.

The bee which unconsciously
acts as Cupid, can transfer pollen
from a thrum-eyed primrose to a
pin-eyed one more easily than to
another flower of the same type.

It’s a splendid arrangement.
The only trouble is that at the
time the primroses flower there
are very few bees about. Early
birds get the worm, but early
flowers don’t get the bee.

So every year millions of dear
little primroses are deprived of
the joys of parenthood, and if it
wasn’t for their ability to increase
their numbers by spreading out
underground we might live in a
primroseless world.

As usual, Shakespeare puts it
better than I do. In “Winter's
Tale” he says:—

pale primroses
That die unmarried, ere they
can behold
Bright Phoebus in his strength,
a malady
Most incident to maids.

It doesn’t harm the primrose
plant to pick the flower, you'll
be glad to hear, but you shouldn’t
dig up the roots until the flowers
have died down,

Fresh primrose leaves chopped
up in salad are a substitute for
settuce.

For further reading I am told
that no primrose lover should
miss Fengler and Prentl’s “Die
Naturlichen ° Pflanzenfamilien”

Millions
Headache

Their Rubber Factories
May Wit Dollar Trade

By FREDERICK COOK

NEW YORK.
THE huge synthetic rubber factories
America built in wartime, when the Japan-
ese cut off Malayan supplies of the real
thing, have developed into one of the big-
gest post-war headaches for this country.
Since the middle of 1947, leaders of the

tyre and rubber industries, top Army brass-|)
hats and Government experts have been|}}

deep in discussions about what to do with
them.

The discussions are still going on. And
no solution is in sight:

The problem America faces is this:

Shall the factories be kept going, holding
down the amount of natural rubber America
imports?

FEWER DOLLARS

If the answer is Yes, that means we earn
fewer dollars in Malaya. And that means
the U.S. taxpayer has to go on finding dol-
lars under the Marshall Plan, or we have
to cut U.S. buying still more. Or—

Shall the factories close, throwing thous-
ands out of work?

If the answer to that is Yes, can the
Truman advisers weather the trade union
storm?

Far more importantly, can America be
sure that in a future war her rubber sup-
plies will not again be cut off? Is it a risk
she dare take?

There are more than £238 millions in
Government-owned factories involved,

‘SELL THEM’
The original post-war talks resulted in

June 30 this year.

In mid-January President Truman sought
to end the deadlock with a plan to sell the
factories to private industry “as soon as
possible” and to accompany the deal with
regulations and restrictions aimed at pre-
venting a price war between natural rub-
ber and synthetic.

But his close adviser, Mr. J. R. Steelman,
has admitted: “No permanent or long-range
solution to many of the problems has been
found.”

STATE MONOPOLY OR .. ..

Tied up with the dilemma in which
Washington finds itself are issues which
cannot be brushed aside, like Government
ownership of a monopoly or private enter-
rise,

* At stake, too, are the 9,400,000 acres of
rubber trees owned and cultivated by
America’s friends—ourselves, the Dutch and
the French.

Core of the whole business is national
defence.

The President’s latest report stated flatly
that rubber was “indispensable.”

‘BEST MEN QUITTING’

Yet a trade leader, pointing out that Com-
munist revolutionaries in the Far East were
a grave threat to a steady rubber supply,
said gloomily: “This country cannot really
count on a single ton.

“The rubber estates could produce over
2 million tons a year, but last year’s output
was less than 1,500,000.

“The real reason is that many of the best
estate managers are quitting. They eat and
sleep with a gun beside them and they are|
getting tired of it. They can’t take it any

more.”
18 FACTORIES SOLD
The majority of America’s synthetic
capacity is still either producing or in

stand by condition.

Effective capacity of the U.S. industry is
said to be 800,000 tons annually, enough to
keep the country going if non-essential uses
were trimmed away.

Of this total, the present law demands
that 600,000 capacity be kept either in use
or ready to produce within 90 days.

Bighteen Government factories have
already been sold, at about a third of their
original cost. Five others, declared surplus,
have found no buyers yet.

ting of petroleum and natural gas,
and for purposes cennected with
the matters aforesaid.

(5th January, 1950).

Be it enacted by the Governor,
Council and Assembly of this
Island and by the authority of the
same as follows: —

2. (1) In this Act, except
where the context otherwise re-
quires, the following expressions
have the meanings hereby respec-
tively assigned to them, that is to
say:—
“Ancillary Rights Commis-

sion” means the Commission

constituted by and in accord-
ance with the provisions of the

Schedule to this Act;

“land” ingludes land covered
hy water;

“o.yner” means the person for
the time being receiving the
racic rent of the land in con-
nection with which the word is
used, whether on his own
account or as agent or trustee
for any other person, or who
would so receive the same if the
land were let at a rack rent;

“petroleum” includes any
mineral oil or relative hydro-

which oil can be extracted by
destructive distillation;

“pooling area” in relation to
a productive well means an

well commenced after the com-
ing into operation of this Act
from which petroleum is recov-
ered and in respect of which
royalty is paid;

“well” includes bore-hole.

tained in the last foregoing sub-
section where the ownership of
petroleum has, at the date of the
passing of this Act, been severed
from the ownership of the land
in which such petroleum is situ-
ated, the expression “owner” shall
be deemed to mean the person
who would, prior to the passing
of this Act, have been entitled,
whether on his own account or as
agent or trustee for any other

Payable in respect of such petrol-
eum under a petroleum mining
licence or lease, or any successor
in title of such person.

(3) In this Act references to a

Vesting of property in petroleum
in Governor-in-Executive
Committee

3. (1) Notwithstanding any-
thing to the contrary in any en-
actment or in any lease or other
instrument of title, the property
in petroleum existing in its
natural condition in strata with-
in the Island is hereby vested in
the Governor-in-Executive Com-
mittee.

(2) No person shall, after the
commencement of this Act, search
for or get petroleum except in
pursuance of a licence or lease
granted under this Act.

4. Subject to the provisions of
this Act and of any regulations
made thereunder, the Governor-
in-Executive Committee may
grant to such person as he thinks
fit, licences or leases to search for
and get petroleum and any such
licences or leases shall be grant-
ed for such consideration
(whether by way of royalty or
otherwise) and upon such other
terms and conditions as the Gov~
ernor-in - Executive Committee
may determine.

Royalties

5. (1) Every licensee or
lessee under a licence or lease
granted under this Act shall pay
a toyalty computed at the rate
specified the licence or lease
on the selling value of all crude
petroleum or natural gas recov-
ered from the land comprised in
the licence or lease.

(2) No royalty shall be paid
in respect of any crude petroleum
used by the licensee or lessee for
purposes of production or for pur-
poses incidental thereto, or in re-
spect of natural gas which is not
sold. -

(3) The rate of royalty to be
specified in any licence or lease
shall be determined by the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee
when granting the licence or lease
and shall not in any case be less
than ten per centum.

(4) For the purposes of this
section, the selling value of any
crude petroleum or natural gas

ment, by arbitration.

6. (1) Any royalties or other
monies payable by a licensee or
lessee under a licence or lease
granted under this Act shall be

diction by any person authorised
in that behalf by the Governor-in-
Executive Committee.

(2) All such royalties and
monies shall be paid by tite Colo-

nial Treasurer into the Public
Treasury to the credit of the
general revenues of the Island.

Petroleum Quota Payments
7. (1) Subject to the provis-
ions of this section, every owner
of land situated in a pooling area
in which a productive well is
located shall be entitled to receive
from the Governor-in-Executive
Committee in respect of the petro-
leum recovered from such well
during his ownership of such land,
payments (hereinafter referred to
as petroleum quota payments)
calculated in accordance with the

provisions of the next succeeding
subsection.

(2) A petroleum quota payment
shall be of such an amount as shall
bear the same proportion to
twenty-five per centum of the
royalties payable in respect of
petroleum recovered from a pro-
ductive well during the relevant
period as the area of land owned
by the person entitled to receive
such payment or who would have
been so entitled if the ownership
of the petroleum had not been
severed from the ownership of the
land, bears to the total area of
land in the pooling area.

For the purposes of this sub-
section the expression “relevant
period” means a period of one
year or, if the person entitled to
receive a petroleum quota pay-
ment has owned the said land, or,
where the ownership of the petro-
leum has been severed from the
ownership of the said land, has
owned the petroleum situated in
the said land for a shorter period
than one year, such shorter period.

(3) The petroleum quota pay-
ments to be made under this sec-
tion shall be paid out of the Public
Treasury on the warrant of the
Governor-in-Executive Committee
at such times and in such manner
as the Governor-in-Executive
Committee may direct.

(4) No petroleum quota pay-
ment shall be paid to any person
until he has satisfied the Govcrnor-
in-Executive Committee, by the
production of title deeds, plans,
and such other evidence as the
Governor-in-Executive Committe:
may require, that he is entitled to
receive such payment.

8. (1) Notwithstanding any-
thing contained in this Act, every
person who at the commencement
of this Act is receiving royalties
from an existing well or who at
that date is a lessee of an existing
well shall be entitled to be paid,
by way of compensation for the
vesting in the Governor-in-
Executive Committee by virtue of
this Act of the property in the
petroleum recoverable from such
well, a lump sum representing
the amount which the rights of
the owner or of the lessee, as the
case may be, in respect of such
well might have been expected to
realise if they had been sold on
the twenty-eighth day of January
one thousand nine hundred and
forty-nine, in the open market by
a willing seller.

Provided that in the case of a
lessee, the compensation may, if
the Governor-in-Executive Com-
mittee and lessee so agree, be
satisfied by the grant to the lessee
or to any person nominated by
him, of a licence or lease of such
well, or of lands comprising such
well, under the provisions of sec-
tion four of this Act, or partly by
the grant of a licence or lease as
aforesaid, and partly by the pay-
ment of money.

(2) Any question as to the
amount of compensation to be
paid under this section shall, in
default of agreement between the
Governor~in-Executive Commit-
tee and the owner, or the lessee,
be determined by afbitration.

(3) Any sum to be paid under
this’ section shall be paid out of
the Public Treasury on the war-
rant of the Governor of the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee.

Ancillary Rights

9. (1) Where any facility,
right, or privilege is required in
order that petroleum may be
property and conveniently search-
ed for and got by any person to
whom a licence or lease uncer
section four has been granted, and
the proper and efficient searching
for and getting of the petroleum
is unduly hampered by the in-
ability or failure of the licensee
or lessee to obtain such facility,
right or privilege (hereinafter re-
ferred to as an “ancillary right’),
such ancillary right may be con-
ferred on the licensee or lessee in
the manner and subject to the pro-
visions hereinafter appearing.

(2) In particular, but without
prejudice to the generality of the
foregoing provision, such ancillary
rights shall include—

(a) a right to enter upon land and
to search for and get petro-
Jeum;

a right to use and occupy
land for the erection of such
buildings and tanks, the lay-
ing and maintenance of sitch
pipes, and the construction of
such other works as may be
required for the purpose of
searching for and_ getting
petroleum;

a right to obtain a supply of
water or other substances in
connection with thé search for
or getting of petroleum;

a right to dispose of water or
other liquid matter obtained
while searching for or getting
petroleum,

(3) An ancillary right may be
granted te a licensee or lessee
either at the time when a licence
or lease is granted or at any si-
sequent time

(b)

(c)

(d)

10, An ancillary right shall not
be granted under this Act unless
it is shown to the satisfaction of
the Ancillary Rights Commission
that it is not reasonably practicable
to obtain the right in question by
private arrangement for any of
the following reasons—

(a) that the persons with power
to grant the right are numer-
ous or have conflicting inter-
ests;

that the persons with power
to grant the right, or any of
them, are residing out of the
Colony, or cannot be ascer-
tained or found;

(c) fhat the persons from whom

(b)



the right must be obtained, or
any of them, have not the
necessary powers of disposi-
tion, whether by reason of de-
fect of title, legal disability,
or otherwise;

that the person with power
to grant the right unreason-
ably refuses to grant it, or
after reasonable consideration
has been offered, demands
terms, which having regard to
the circumstances, are un-
reasonable.

11. (1) Amy licensee or lessee
who is desirous of obtaining an
ancillary right may make applica-
tion in writing to the Ancillary
Rights Commission for the grant
of such a right.

(2) An application under this
section shall set forth the cireum-
stances alleged to justify the grant
of the right and shall be in such
form and verified in such manner
as the Commission shall direct

(3) The Commission shall, as
soon as possible after the receipt
of an application in pursuance of
Subsection (1) of this section,
cause to be published in the
Official Gazette, in one issue of a
daily newspaper, in one issue of a
bi-weekly newspaper, and in one
issue of a weekly newspaper pub-
lished in this Island, a notice set-
ting forth fhe name of the appli-
cant, the nature of the ancillary
right claimed and a sufficient des-
cription of the area in which it is
desired to exercise the right.

12. (1) The Ancillary Rights
Commission shall inquire into any
application for the grant of an
ancillary right made in accordance
with the provisions of section
eleven of this Act.

(2) Any person whose interests
are or may be prejudicially affect-
ed by the grant of an application
for an ancillary tight shall be
entitled to be heard by himself or
by counsel or solicitor, and to
examine and cross-examine any
person giving evidence before the
Commission.

(d

(3) The provisions of sections
nine, ten, eleven, twelve, fourteen
and seventeen of the Commissions
of Enquiry Act 1908 shall, with
such modifications and adaptations
as may be necessary, apply to an
inquiry under this section.

13. (1) The Ancillary Rights
Commission, in considering
whether an ancillary right should
be granted and the terms and
conditions, if any, to be imposed
if such a right is granted, shall
have regard, among other consid-
erations, to the effect on the amen-
ities of the locality of the proposed
use and occupation of the land
in respect of which the application
is made. f ;

(2) Where the Commission is
satisfied that it is expedient in the
public interest that the application
should be granted, the Commission
shall, by order in writing, grant
such application subject to such
terms and conditions and for sucn
period, as the Commission shall
think fit; and upon such order
being made, the right specified in
the order shall vest in the appli-
cant,

(3) No ancillary right granted
under this section shall confer on
the person to whom it is granted
any greater power than if the
right had been granted by a person
with power to grant such right
nor relieve the grantee from any
obligation or liability to which he
would have been subject had the
right been granted by such a per-
son.

14, (1) Where an ancillary right

More Seawell
Equipment

OCCUPYING the section of the
waterfront by the Government
erane yesterday, were heavy and
light trucks, a motor grader, a
pull grader, truck and aeroplane
tyres, wobble wheels, iron sheets,
concrete forms and other equip-
ment fer Seawell,

They were during the day dis-
charged by motor vessel “Caracas”
which arrived from Trinidad on
Thursday. The “Caracas’s” cranes
handled the lighter cargo while
the Government crane was used
in taking off the heavy cargo.

The “Caracas” is scheduled to
finish discharging the machinery
today. Some of the equipment was
removed from the wharf to Sea-
well yesterday.

Scheduled Price
Ignored Daily

By Banana Sellers

“I AM selling these bananas
two for three cents,” said a vendor
when approached by a would-be
purchaser yesterday.

“Why?” replied the amazed in-
dividual; “I think that that variety
is being sold at three for a penny.
Do you know that you can be
charged for selling above the
scheduled price?”

“I don’t care,” she replied, “for
I know how I bought these.”

This is a typical example of
what happens daily when people
approach the sellers of bananas to
buy the fruit.

Despite the fines that are regu-
larly imposed for the breach of
the Schedule Order, some sellers
persist in disregarding it. Most
of them ask, and usually get, a
cent for each banana but some
are even more unreasonable and
ask three cents for two, which
with another added, should only
bring them two cents,

‘CARIBBEE’
ON DOCK

THE M.V. “Caribbee, which
arrived here on Wednesday morn-
ing, will go on dock at the Central
Foundry for cleaning and general
overhauling today.

The “Caribbee” will be on dock
for a few days and will resume
its regular voyages next week.

The M.V. “Moneka”, sister ship
of the “Caribbee” was taken on
dock earlier this week for a
similar overhaul,

What The |
Chief Justice |
Said |

IN YESTERDAY'S issue of this
paper His Honour the Chief Judge,
Sir Allan Collymore is reported
to have commented on the verdict
of a Common Pleas Jury in these |
words: “I must confess that it is
a most surprising verdigt. How-
ever, that is your verdict.”

The exact words used by the
Chief Judge were: “I must con-
fess that it is somewhat sur-
prising—at least it is to me. But
you are the sole judges of the
fact.”

Before the business of the
Court of Ordinary began yester-
day, the Chief Judge commented
on the misquotation, and said it
was inaccurate, incomplete anc
misleading. He said that he hac
not trespassed on the field which
was peculiarly within the province
of the jury.

batsmen in the world,

Frankie Worrell
He said that Worrell was a great
batsman who was unlikely to do
things in a sensational way, but
would go along steadily, beating
the field with his cleverly placed
strokes.

Worrell had gained valuable
experience of English conditions
in the Lancashire League last
season. He was more orthodox
in style than another excellent
batsman with the team, Everton
Weekes, but in the same mould
of brilliance.

Asked if he thought the leading
West Indies leagues of to-day were

nounces.
Dr. Patrick Owens, sanitary

(Advocate Correspondent)
BELIZE, May 5.

The Government to-day after
six weeks decided to permit the
People’s Committee to hold a
meeting in the Public Square on
condition that the Committee sub-
mit to the Government the names
of the proposed speakers and the
subjects for discussion. The meet-
ing is limited until 8 to 10 p.m,
with no band or other form of
musical assistance in attendance.

Last week the Government
banned a General Workers’ Union
Annual Conference meeting
planned for Battlefield Square.
During the past two weeks heavy
press and public opinion urged the
Government to repeal the Emerg-
ency Act declared on February 13
during the anti-devaluation crisis
on the ground that there has been
no unrest since mid-March.

FIRM NOTE

British Government funds and
leading industrialists claimed most
of the business in the London

tered and prices ciosed on a very
firm note.

United States in a new

SATURDAY, MAY

Workers
Walk Out

IN BUFNOS AIRES

BUENOS AIRES, May 5.

Workers in all “frigorificos”
walked out. in orderly fashion at
midnight, thus bringing to a half
all activity in packing ‘houses
throughout the country and also
in branch houses. Police reinforce-
ments were on hand to prevent
disturbances while “frigorificos”
assigned administrative employees
to take over the maintenance of
freezing chambers with a view to
preventing damage to equipment,
which would have been caused by
stopping the machinery.



The strike, which was called
by the Meat Packers Federation
is scheduled to last until packers
are willing to discuss new work-
ing conditions.

The strike will immediately
halt meat loadings to Britain and
will also affect domestic provis
jon of cold and canned meats.
Sausages and other “frigorifico”
by-products although carcass meat
supplies for home consumption
are not affected since State-owned
“frigorificos” and slaughter houses
which are not included in the
strike will be able to make up for
the small volume of carcass meat
which foreign “frigorificos” nor-
mally supply to the home market.

Pro-Government newspapers,
which normally support the strike
movements, today give minimum
attention to the “frigorifico” strike,
despite its importance.

This was taken to mean that
the “frigorifico” strike is not
favoured by the pro-Government
general, Del Trabjo, and it is pre-
sumed that authorities will call
heads of the Meat Workers Feder-
ation in an effort to settle the
strike as soon as possible.

Although workers are striking
against foreign-owned “frigorifi-
cos.” these have heen “subsidised”
to the tune of about 30,000,000
pesos a montb for the past in order
to cover the deficit in steer meat
production so that any increase in
their operating cost as a result of
new wage demands will automati
cally mean an increased subsidy,
from the Government.

Meanwhile the port workers’
strike, which has been declared
illegal by Government and
denounced as unpatriotic by CGT
continued today although incom-
pletely since it is estimated that
30 to 40% of the workers had
returned to work.

On the other hand, workers in
food packing industries, whom
the CGT support, are continuing
their strike strongly.



B.G. Businessman
Gets Seven Years

for Arson

GEORGETOWN, May 2.

Henry Algoo, 47-year-old Ma-
haica businessman» was sent to
prison for 7 years penal servitude
on Tuesday after a jury had found
him guilty of maliciously setting
fire to his $15,000 business pre-
mises which was completely de-
stroyed by fire during the early
hours of April 29. 1949—9 days
after his insurance of the premises
was increased by $2,200. The
verdict of the jury was by a 10—2
majority after deliberating for 2
hours. Mr. Justice E, R. L. Ward
presided,

The Crown's case was based on
the allegation that business at the
“Grand Central’ owned by Algoo
had declined considerably and
Algoo deliberately set fire to it in
order to collect insurance money
with a view to starting a new con-
eern. With this object in mind,
the Crown further alleged that

Algoo removed practically all the
goods from Grand Central to Vic-
toria, Belfield,
village.

Henry VIII's
Wine Cellar
Leaves Whitehall

LONDON.
King Henry VIII’s roomy wine
cellar in Whitehall Gardenhs,

weighing some 800 tons, has been
moved bodily 43 feet from its
original position in one of the
most unique engineering opera-
tions in history

The ancient monument, a crypt
62 feet long, 32 feet wide and 22
feet 6 inches high, was moved to
its new site in one piece and re-
sited 20 feet below its original
level because it interfered with
the building of new Government
offices.

British experts did not want to
demolisk such a distinctive build-
ing with its fine brick vaulting
ond four central stone columns, as
it was still so well preserved after
four centuries,

The wine céllar was formerly
underneath the main floor of the
Tudor palace (Whitehal)] Palace)
used by the King with many
wives

If allowed to remain in its origi-
nal position it would have hin-
dered building operations and
furthermore would have projected
30 feet beyond the building line
and would not have blended with
any architectural feature.

Today the cellar is hidden in
the basement almost next to a
boiler house, When the office
building is completed the cellar
will be open to visitors by special!
arrangement.

The moving was done by con-
structing a steel framework in-
side to take the weight off the
vaulted roof and make the interior
as rigid as possible. The cellar was
then. underpinned with concrete
and steel girders and mounted on
steel rollers, so that it could be
pulled by eight men using screw
jacks at the rate of 8 feet a day.

The lowering operation was car-
ried out by means of 186 16-ton
jacks. The cellor was lowered
only a sixteenth of an inch at a
time.

When the cellar slowly moved
horizontally and was lowered to
its new site not one brick was
disturbed and the few original
cracks are still. there but not
widened. INS

burning, ali
flying boat,

A new k erosene
metal, medium-range
capable of cruising at 500 m.p.h.
and carrying 74 passengers, has
been designed by Saunders-Roe
Ltd., of Cowes, Isle of Wight.

The flying boat, which will be
known as the “Duchess”, will be
equipped with six “Ghost” en-
gines. It is claimed to be the most
economical medium-range aircraft
in the world.

An official of the firm said the
cost per passenger mile is just
over a penny for routes of 1,300—
1,500 miles and two cents per pas-
senger mile on distances of 2,000
miles,

The cost per ton mile is also a
record at just over 14 cents per
ton mile for 1,300-—-1,500 miles and
about 21 cents for 2,000 miles.

The aircraft will have an all-up
weight of 130,000 Ibs., wing span
of 135 ft. 6 ins., and length
124 ft. 6 ins.

Fuel will be carried in the main-
plane and the passenger accom-

of

modation will be pressurized and
air conditioned,
Tasman Empire Airways are

considering the aircraft for jour-
neys such as that between Aus-
tralia and New Zealand.

Captain Clarke, managing direc -
tor of Saunders-Roe, is on a visit
to New Zealand in connection with
the newly-designed flying boat

Saunders-Roe are now engaged

on the completion of the “Prin-
cess” flying boats, the long-range
commercial craft built to carry

100 passengers on long stage jour-
ne such as the North Atlantic
crossing. Three years ago the firm

You know T’ve been over heré
since the war years and hav
never had much truck with the
warm, weak and watery stuff that
passes for beer in Brita n. Drink

concoction regularly would have

been high treason to the biggest

city in Wisconsin.

But an order is an order and
so IT went to the Pig and Whistle
to tly out Sir, Stafford Cripps
“Budget beer” with the three addi
tional degrees of “oomph” in it

Before 1 got my elbows on the
bar I checked with the Brewer
Saciety, whose syokesman ex
plained that on an average the
new beers are only ten per cert
below the strength of the average
pre-war beer,

He said the idea that “budge
beer” would be only half the pre
war strength was probably causec
by a misunderstanding of Sir
Stafford’s remark that the increass
would bring the average gravits
to half-way between its presen
strength and the pre-war strength

per cent more mait and hops will
be used in bringing beer back to

Publie Utilities

OPINION in Barbados has for some years
past been divided on the future of the
ed fompanics, One group has

at all Public Utility Companies
should be nationalised and run by the State.
Others have felt that private enterprise
has done good work in the past and if any
control were required, the supervision
of a Public Utilities Board would be more
conducive to efficiency.

The latter point of view seems to have
gained greater favour, and His Excellency
has given notice that a Bill for setting up
such a Board will be placed before the Leg-
islature during the present session.

It is to be hoped that the composition of
the Board will be given careful thought.
The interference of politics into every
corner of Barbadian life is not a complete
blessing. The Board to be useful must have
wide powers and the exercise of those
powers must not be influenced in any way
by political considerations.

‘it has not ye’ cen revealed what pow-
ers the Board will have but if it is based
on the Canadian precedents they will in-
clude the regulation of charges, the safe-
guarding of fair distribution and the in-
vestigation of complaints.

In Canada the Board has not operated
as an arbitrator between the Company and
its employees and that is right as long as
the principle of private ownership is
recognised, The function of the Board has
been to regulate the interests of the Com-
pany and the public.

The Board should have power to insist
on expansion and it is to be hoped that it
will be able to obtain for the Public Utility
Companies the Currency and licences ne-
cessary for the purchase of machinery and
equipment for expansion, from the country
best able to supply them.

The recent difficulties of the Electricity
‘Corporation have been due to break-downs
in their plant and although public criticism
has been directed to other matters, the
principal cause for dissatisfaction has been
the partial cessation of the supply of cur-
rent.

Now there remains a large number of
houses which require electricity and which
the Company is not yet in a position to
satisfy. Action must be taken to give every
facility to the Company to obtain the
machinery by which they shall be in a
position to satisfy the demands made upon
them.

In Barbados, one of the matters which
has always exacerbated public opinion is
the lack of information which they face
on matters vital to the country. A Public
Utility Board can be made the vehicle of
information so that members of the public
can gather their information from reliable
sources,

The Barbados Telephone Company also
requires expansion. Good work has been
done by them in extending the dial system
to country parishes but there are many
would-be subscribers in districts nearer to
town who have been waiting for many
months to have a telephone installed.

Closer co-operation between Govern-
ment, through a Public Utilities Board and
the Company may facilitate their efforts at
extending their field of operations.

The Gas Company has given good service
to the community but their future is over-
shadowed by the refusal of the House of
Assembly to pass a Bill under which the
Company would be enabled to supply
Natural Gas to consumers at a reasonable
rate. Because of this uncertainty the Com-
pany cannot be blamed if they do not un-
dertake greater expansion or are unable to
reduce the cost of supply.

The people of Barbados are not unmind-
ful of the great difficulties faced by the
Utility Companies. It is their hope that the
formation of a Public Utility Board will
help to create those conditions in which the
Companies -will be able to give the best
service to the community.

| We should give the old people

been done in so many other cases.
It is necessary to say again
very emphatically that in these
days of high prices it is not pos-

poorest manner on 5/- a week.

And in and around Bridgetown a charity)
good many of the pensioners have fundamental

to pay 2/- a week, or even 3/-,
for room-rent, It is a mystery
how they get through at all. They
ean only do so by begging, and
the kindness of neighbours, or by
the small gifts of past employers

and the help of kind-hearted folk
who finance the charities of the
churches and other organizations.
But altogether in many cases it

adds up to. very bare and uncer-
tain support. It is most unfor-
tunate that the increase of the
pension last year to 5/- is coun-
teracted so positively by the high
cost of almost everything. And
still prices are rising.

But what should be the amount
of the cost-of-living bonus? I
suggest a shilling a week, and I
feel sure we could manage that.

The proposal goes counter to
my previous point about the big
expenditure on pensions already,
and the doubt whether the island
can bear a further increase under
this head. But our revenue is
rising steadily and substantially
—it is three times the figure of
ten years ago, we are told. And
there are good prospects of fur-
ther increase: only this morning,
as I write, the Advocate declared
that we have had a good tourist
season, and judging by the con-
stant announcements of comings
and goings that is a correct sum-
ming up to date, in spite of com-
plaints about lack of advertise-
ment and encouragement for this
valuable asset.

Anyway we have tp face the dis-
tressful fact that a large number of

This boon is now provided for

work for as much as 20/- a week

necessarily bigger than ours, of
course, (But I believe the age for

earn more than 20/-, the surplus
is correspondingly deducted from

required to make a weekly de-

should be made here: it stands

got a good position and was able
to earn a real living, or a sub-
stantial wage, that would oper-
ate to suspend, or at least modify

the pension, which had been
granted at a time of illness or
unemployment.

Now would it not be immensely
better for pensioners to go on
doing a little work, if able, than
to idle around with half support
and have to bes:. Or perhaps to
work surreptitiously and against
the pension law, and with a con-
sciousness, maybe, of obtaining

DESIRE MEETS A THRUM-EYED PRIMROSE
By Bernard Wicksteed

|
STOKE GABRIEL (Devon),

HERE we are on a fine sunny

day in spring showing England
to KYX 2. our promising post-
war car, and for her first run
we've chosen the old beat down

to Devon.

I keep telling KYX 2, or Desire
as we call her in the family, what
a lucky car she is. Here she is,
stuffed with happy people rolling
through the lanes of Devon in the
sunshine of an English spring.
Before we've finished with her,
Desire should be an authority on
her native land, for we are going
to show her all the things she’d
have missed had she been sent
abroad for export—the things
that go to make up England.

Lark Song

WE are going to show her pubs
(at least, the outside of them),
thatched cottages, flowers in the
hedgerows, birds, market towns
and cathedral cities, people at
work, and rivers where the best
fish lie.

I once knew an Englishman in
Australia who had a gramophone
record of a lark singing at dawn.
It was a simple bit of recording,
but he used to play it for hours
on end, till the tears ran down
his cheeks and made pools in the
dust at his feet.

Desire will hear the lark for
herself. She'll hear the barn owl
in the ruined tower at night, and
the country church bells on Sun-
day morning.

| Just now we are introducing
her to primroses. England with-
out primroses in April is. unthink-
able, and yet hundreds of cars
leave these shores every day
without ever having experienced
the ancient custom of taking the
family out primrosing.

Here in Devon the banks and
the edges of the woods are yellow
with their flowers, and as one of
my boys so rightly says, “They
make you feel sort of happy, don’t
they?”

Besides picking them and being
made happy by them, have you
ever considered the story of their
life?



The primrose (Primula vulgaris)
is only a humble country flower
but it comes from a very good
family called the Primulaceae.
The name goes back to the
Romans, you know.

Party Flower

THERE'S nothing wrong with
being called vulgaris. It refers to
their abundance, not their man-
ners. Indeed, they've been anh
emblem of Tory respectability for
generations.

They joined the Conservative
Party at the time of Disraeli.
The primrose was his faveurite
flower, and Queen Victoria sent
him a bunch every year for his
birthday. ig

Neither of them knew that the
party was harbouring a plant with
a political secret. The leaves of
the primrose branch from the root
and not the stem. You mustn’t
tell Lord Woolton or the Primrose
League this, but the botanical
word for such leaves is “radical”.

Darwin studied the love+life of
primroses,

In the language of botany, they
hybridise very readily. The poly-
anthus is one of the results. Its
ancestors were a gay primrose and
a cowslip that slipped once too
often.

Two Kinds

IF you take a dozen primroses,
all apparently the same, and look
at them closely you will find that
half the flowers are different from
the other half.

One lot have a ‘tuing in u.°
centre that looks like a green
glass-eye. This is the stigma or
end of the pistil. The other lot
have a group of five little yellow
things covered in pollen, They
are named stamens.

Flowers of the first kind are
called pin-eyed and of the second
thrum-eyed.

Now split them down the centre
and you'll see that the pin-eyed
pistil-packing momma also has
five stamens, but they are down
at the bottom where the nectar
is. And the one with the stamens
at the top has a pistil at the
bottom that’s more like a sawn-
off shotgun. It is all an e’aborate
device to encourage cross-
breeding, and so produce bigger
and more beautiful primroses.

The bee which unconsciously
acts as Cupid, can transfer pollen
from a thrum-eyed primrose to a
pin-eyed one more easily than to
another flower of the same type.

It’s a splendid arrangement.
The only trouble is that at the
time the primroses flower there
are very few bees about. Early
birds get the worm, but early
flowers don’t get the bee.

So every year millions of dear
little primroses are deprived of
the joys of parenthood, and if it
wasn’t for their ability to increase
their numbers by spreading out
underground we might live in a
primroseless world.

As usual, Shakespeare puts it
better than I do. In “Winter's
Tale” he says:—

pale primroses
That die unmarried, ere they
can behold
Bright Phoebus in his strength,
a malady
Most incident to maids.

It doesn’t harm the primrose
plant to pick the flower, you'll
be glad to hear, but you shouldn’t
dig up the roots until the flowers
have died down,

Fresh primrose leaves chopped
up in salad are a substitute for
settuce.

For further reading I am told
that no primrose lover should
miss Fengler and Prentl’s “Die
Naturlichen ° Pflanzenfamilien”
(Leipzig 1887-1908). I'll bet it’s
exciting.

Millions
Headache

Their Rubber Factories
May Wit Dollar Trade

By FREDERICK COOK

NEW YORK.
THE huge synthetic rubber factories
America built in wartime, when the Japan-
ese cut off Malayan supplies of the real
thing, have developed into one of the big-
gest post-war headaches for this country.
Since the middle of 1947, leaders of the

tyre and rubber industries, top Army brass-|)
hats and Government experts have been|}}

deep in discussions about what to do with
them.

The discussions are still going on. And
no solution is in sight:

The problem America faces is this:

Shall the factories be kept going, holding
down the amount of natural rubber America
imports?

FEWER DOLLARS

If the answer is Yes, that means we earn
fewer dollars in Malaya. And that means
the U.S. taxpayer has to go on finding dol-
lars under the Marshall Plan, or we have
to cut U.S. buying still more. Or—

Shall the factories close, throwing thous-
ands out of work?

If the answer to that is Yes, can the
Truman advisers weather the trade union
storm?

Far more importantly, can America be
sure that in a future war her rubber sup-
plies will not again be cut off? Is it a risk
she dare take?

There are more than £238 millions in
Government-owned factories involved,

‘SELL THEM’
The original post-war talks resulted in

June 30 this year.

In mid-January President Truman sought
to end the deadlock with a plan to sell the
factories to private industry “as soon as
possible” and to accompany the deal with
regulations and restrictions aimed at pre-
venting a price war between natural rub-
ber and synthetic.

But his close adviser, Mr. J. R. Steelman,
has admitted: “No permanent or long-range
solution to many of the problems has been
found.”

STATE MONOPOLY OR .. ..

Tied up with the dilemma in which
Washington finds itself are issues which
cannot be brushed aside, like Government
ownership of a monopoly or private enter-
rise,

* At stake, too, are the 9,400,000 acres of
rubber trees owned and cultivated by
America’s friends—ourselves, the Dutch and
the French.

Core of the whole business is national
defence.

The President’s latest report stated flatly
that rubber was “indispensable.”

‘BEST MEN QUITTING’

Yet a trade leader, pointing out that Com-
munist revolutionaries in the Far East were
a grave threat to a steady rubber supply,
said gloomily: “This country cannot really
count on a single ton.

“The rubber estates could produce over
2 million tons a year, but last year’s output
was less than 1,500,000.

“The real reason is that many of the best
estate managers are quitting. They eat and
sleep with a gun beside them and they are|
getting tired of it. They can’t take it any

more.”
18 FACTORIES SOLD
The majority of America’s synthetic
capacity is still either producing or in

stand by condition.

Effective capacity of the U.S. industry is
said to be 800,000 tons annually, enough to
keep the country going if non-essential uses
were trimmed away.

Of this total, the present law demands
that 600,000 capacity be kept either in use
or ready to produce within 90 days.

Bighteen Government factories have
already been sold, at about a third of their
original cost. Five others, declared surplus,
have found no buyers yet.

Post Office and acquire a 5/6

from which a 5/- stamp can be
purchased. The Police Department
could certainly be allowed to have
£5 in stamps to save this waste of
valuable time.

To The Editor The Advocate
SIR,—As a contributor to the)
General Bus Co., how often
have coveted the fortune of the
disgruntled peoples who have the |
heurly service of the St. George |
Bus Co. : i
Has it ever occurred to the
Directors of the General Bus Co.
that an hourly service between
Horse Hill and Bridgetown would
prove advantageous? and a trans—
fer bus between Martins Bay and
Clifton Hall, an age-long neces.

sity? ;

Tt may sound incredible, but!
‘tis true that people frequently
walk from Horse Hill, Paris Hill,
Fisher Pond, Sweet Bottom and
other distant districts to New-
bury, through force of circurs
stances, to patronise the St. |
George buses. Would not tnis'
cause lopsidedness somewhe.e?
Would it be right to tell them.
“These not your buses”.

How often school children are
left by the roadside at the mercies
of others, with no excuse what-
ever; after having already pur-—
chased tickets from the Genefal
Bus Co.

It is that those who have, cannot

appreciate what others long for |

the matters aforesaid.

quires, the following expressions

tively assigned to them, that is to
say:—

sion” means the Commission

constituted by and in accord-
ance with the provisions of the

Schedule to this Act;

hy water;

“o.yner” means the person for
the time being receiving the

natural condition in strata with-
in the Island is hereby vested in

ed for such consideration
(whether by way of royalty or
otherwise) and upon such other
terms and conditions as the Gov~
ernor-in - Executive Committee
may determine.

Royalties

5. (1) Every licensee or
lessee under a licence or lease

the licence or lease.

(2) No royalty shall be paid
in respect of any crude petroleum
used by the licensee or lessee for
purposes of production or for pur-
poses incidental thereto, or in re-

specified in any licence or lease
shall be determined by the Gov-

(4) For the purposes of this
section, the selling value of any
crude petroleum or natural gas

Petroleum Quota Payments
7. (1) Subject to the provis-
ions of this section, every owner
of land situated in a pooling area
in which a productive well is
located shall be entitled to receive
from the Governor-in-Executive
Committee in respect of the petro-
leum recovered from such well
during his ownership of such land,
payments (hereinafter referred to
as petroleum quota payments)
calculated in accordance with the

provisions of the next succeeding
subsection.

(2) A petroleum quota payment
shall be of such an amount as shall
bear the same proportion to
twenty-five per centum of the
royalties payable in respect of
petroleum recovered from a pro-
ductive well during the relevant
period as the area of land owned
by the person entitled to receive
such payment or who would have
been so entitled if the ownership
of the petroleum had not been
severed from the ownership of the
land, bears to the total area of
land in the pooling area.

For the purposes of this sub-
section the expression “relevant
period” means a period of one
year or, if the person entitled to
receive a petroleum quota pay-
ment has owned the said land, or,
where the ownership of the petro-
leum has been severed from the
ownership of the said land, has
owned the petroleum situated in
the said land for a shorter period
than one year, such shorter period.

(3) The petroleum quota pay-
ments to be made under this sec-
tion shall be paid out of the Public
Treasury on the warrant of the
Governor-in-Executive Committee
at such times and in such manner
as the Governor-in-Executive
Committee may direct.

(4) No petroleum quota pay-
ment shall be paid to any person
until he has satisfied the Govcrnor-
in-Executive Committee, by the
production of title deeds, plans,
and such other evidence as the
Governor-in-Executive Committe:
may require, that he is entitled to
receive such payment.

8. (1) Notwithstanding any-
thing contained in this Act, every
person who at the commencement
of this Act is receiving royalties
from an existing well or who at
that date is a lessee of an existing
well shall be entitled to be paid,
by way of compensation for the
vesting in the Governor-in-
Executive Committee by virtue of
this Act of the property in the
petroleum recoverable from such
well, a lump sum representing
the amount which the rights of
the owner or of the lessee, as the
case may be, in respect of such
well might have been expected to
realise if they had been sold on
the twenty-eighth day of January
one thousand nine hundred and
forty-nine, in the open market by
a willing seller.

Provided that in the case of a
lessee, the compensation may, if
the Governor-in-Executive Com-
mittee and lessee so agree, be
satisfied by the grant to the lessee
or to any person nominated by
him, of a licence or lease of such
well, or of lands comprising such
well, under the provisions of sec-
tion four of this Act, or partly by
the grant of a licence or lease as
aforesaid, and partly by the pay-
ment of money.

(2) Any question as to the
amount of compensation to be
paid under this section shall, in
default of agreement between the
Governor~in-Executive Commit-
tee and the owner, or the lessee,
be determined by afbitration.

(3) Any sum to be paid under
this’ section shall be paid out of
the Public Treasury on the war-
rant of the Governor of the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee.

right, or privilege is required in
order that petroleum may be
property and conveniently search-
ed for and got by any person to
whom a licence or lease uncer
section four has been granted, and
the proper and efficient searching
for and getting of the petroleum
is unduly hampered by the in-
ability or failure of the licensee
or lessee to obtain such facility,
right or privilege (hereinafter re-
ferred to as an “ancillary right’),
such ancillary right may be con-
ferred on the licensee or lessee in
the manner and subject to the pro-

ably refuses to grant it, or
after reasonable consideration
has been offered, demands
terms, which having regard to

ancillary right may make applica-
tion in writing to the Ancillary

Commission, in considering
whether an ancillary right should
be granted and the terms and

erations, to the effect on the amen-
ities of the locality of the proposed
use and occupation of the land

right been granted by such a per-
son.

More Seawell
Equipment

OCCUPYING the section of the
waterfront by the Government
erane yesterday, were heavy and
light trucks, a motor grader, a
pull grader, truck and aeroplane
tyres, wobble wheels, iron sheets,
concrete forms and other equip-
ment fer Seawell,

They were during the day dis-
charged by motor vessel “Caracas”
which arrived from Trinidad on
Thursday. The “Caracas’s” cranes
handled the lighter cargo while
the Government crane was used
in taking off the heavy cargo.

The “Caracas” is scheduled to
finish discharging the machinery
today. Some of the equipment was
removed from the wharf to Sea-
well yesterday.

Scheduled Price
Ignored Daily

By Banana Sellers

“I AM selling these bananas
two for three cents,” said a vendor
when approached by a would-be
purchaser yesterday.

“Why?” replied the amazed in-
dividual; “I think that that variety
is being sold at three for a penny.
Do you know that you can be
charged for selling above the
scheduled price?”

“I don’t care,” she replied, “for
I know how I bought these.”

This is a typical example of
what happens daily when people
approach the sellers of bananas to
buy the fruit.

Despite the fines that are regu-
larly imposed for the breach of
the Schedule Order, some sellers
persist in disregarding it. Most
of them ask, and usually get, a
cent for each banana but some
are even more unreasonable and
ask three cents for two, which
with another added, should only
bring them two cents,

‘CARIBBEE’
ON DOCK

THE M.V. “Caribbee, which
arrived here on Wednesday morn-
ing, will go on dock at the Central
Foundry for cleaning and general
overhauling today.

The “Caribbee” will be on dock
for a few days and will resume
its regular voyages next week.

The M.V. “Moneka”, sister ship
of the “Caribbee” was taken on
dock earlier this week for a
similar overhaul,

words: “I must confess that it is
a most surprising verdigt. How-
ever, that is your verdict.”

The exact words used by the
Chief Judge were: “I must con-
fess that it is somewhat sur-
prising—at least it is to me. But
you are the sole judges of the
fact.”

Before the business of the
Court of Ordinary began yester-
day, the Chief Judge commented
on the misquotation, and said it
was inaccurate, incomplete anc
misleading. He said that he hac
not trespassed on the field which
was peculiarly within the province
of the jury.

Frankie Worrell
He said that Worrell was a great
batsman who was unlikely to do
things in a sensational way, but
would go along steadily, beating
the field with his cleverly placed
strokes.

Worrell had gained valuable
experience of English conditions
in the Lancashire League last
season. He was more orthodox
in style than another excellent
batsman with the team, Everton
Weekes, but in the same mould
of brilliance.

Asked if he thought the leading
West Indies leagues of to-day were

Public llililics to has lor some years past bacn divided on the future or the companies. One tfroup has I >l:c Utility Companies should be nationalised and run by the State. ban* felt that private enterprise has done fcood work in tht paM and if any control vrr required, the supervision Public Utilities Board would be more conducive to cfliciency. The latter point of view seems to have gsilMd graatar favour, and His Excellency has given notice that a Bill for setting up such ,i Board will be placed before the Legre during the present session. Ii li to be hoped that the composition of the Buurd. will be given careful thought. The interference of politics into every i r of Barbadian life is not a complete tog. The Board to be 111 fill must hove wide powers and the exercise of those powers must not be influenced in any way by political considerations. Hi has not y* -*n revealed what powers the Board will have but if it is based on the Canadian precedents they will include the regulation of charges, the safeguarding of fair distribution and the investigation of complaints. In Canada the Board has not operated as an arbitrator between the Company and its employees and that is right as long as the principle of private ownership is recognised. The function of the Board has been to regulate the interests of the Company and the public. The Board should have power to insist on expansion and it is to be hoped that it will be able to obtain for the Public Utility Companies the Currency and licences necessary for the purchase of machinery and equipment for expansion, from the country best able to supply them. The recent difficulties of the Electricity 'Corporation have been due to break-downs in Iheir plant and although public criticism has been directed to other matters, the principal cause for dissatisfaction has been the partial cessation of the supply of curItJjt Now there remains a large number of houses which require electricity and which # the Company Is not yet in a position to satisfy. Action must be taken to give every facility to the Company to obtain the machinery by which they shall be in a position to satisfy the demands made upon them. In Barbados, one of the matters which has always exacerbated public opinion is the lack of information which they face on matters vital to the country. A Public Utility Board can be made the vehicle of nation so that members of the public can gather then information from reliable %  MM i-i.. The Barbados Telephone Company also cpai d >n. Good work has been done by them in extending the dial system tq country parishes but there are many would-be .subscribers in districts nearer to town who have been waiting for many months to have a telephone installed. Closer co-operation between Government, through %  Public Utilities Board and the Company may tadlrtate their efforts at extending man? Hold of operations. The GAS Company has given good service to the community but their future is over.shadowed by the refusal of the House of Assembly to pass a Bill under which the Company would be enabled to supply Natural (i.is to consumers at a reasonable rate. Because of this uncertainty the Company cannot be blamed if they do not undertake greater expansion or are unable to reduce the cost of supply. The people of Barbados are not unmindful of the great difficulties faced by the Utility Companies. It is their hope that the formation of a Public Utility Board will help to create those conditions in which the Companies-a*ill be able to give the best to tne community. We face the distressful fact that a large number of our fellow creatures, our imniedi. • %  and felloe -.iliitn*. are not getting reasonable and adequate 1 support (even with the help of charity) In the fundam e n t a I forms of food, clothing, and shelter, and we CBflBOt leave It It that.

Or perhaps to work surreptitiously and against the pension law. and with a consciousness, maybe, of obtaining small sums by dishonest untruthful means. Besides, they could do useful light work, if no more, in the home or yard or garden, i work which at present householders find it very difficult to get done, or which remains un done.

Here in I>evnn the banks and the edges of the woods are yellow with their (lowers, and ai one of my boys so rightly says. "Thev make vou feel sort of happy, don t they?" Besides picking them and being made happy by them, have you ever considered the story of their life? & The primrose (Primula vulgarity is only a humble country flower Itut it comes from a very good family called the Primulaccac. The name goes back to the Romans, you know. I'nri* Flower THERE'S nothing wrong with being called eulaaru. It refers to thetl abundance, not their manners. Indeed, they've been an emblem of Tory respectability for generations. They joined the Conservative Party at the lime of D'sraell. The primrose was his favourite flower, and Queen Victoria sent him a bunch every year for hi' birthday. Neither of them knew that the party was harbouring a plant with a political secret. The leaves of (he primrose branch from the root and not the stem. You mustn't tell Lord Woolton or the Primrose League this, but the botanical word for such leaves is "radical". It.t .MII studied the love-life of primroses. In the langunge of botany, they hybridise very readily. The polyanthus Is one of the results. Its ancestors were a gay primrose and a cowslip that slipped once too of ion. Two Kinds IF you take a dozen primroses. all apparently the same, and look at Ihem closely you will find thai half the flowers are different from the other half. One lot have a *'.iing ir. % %  centre that looks like a g-cen glass-eye. This is the stigma or end of the pistil. The other lot have a group of five litt'e yallOVf things covered in pollen. They are named stamens. Flowers of the first kind are called pin-eyed and of the second thrum-eyed. Now split them down the cantTS and you'll see that the pin-eyed pistil-packing momma also has five stamen*, but they are down at the bottom where the nectar is. And the one with the stamens at the top has n pistil at the Ixrttnm that's more like a sawnofT shotgun. It is all an e aborale device to encourage crossbreeding, and so produce bigger and more beautiful primroses. The bee which unconsciously acts as Cupid, can transfer pollen from a thrum-eyed primrose to a pin-eyed one more easily than to another flower of the same type. It's a splendid arrangement. The only trouble U that at the lime the primroses flower there are vcrv few boos about Early birds get the worm, but early flowers don't get the bee. So every year millions of dear lill'e primroses are deprived of of parenthood, and If it wasn't f, ,h,,,r ability to Increase then' numbers by spreading oul underground we might live tfl >> prlmroseless world. As usual, Shakespeare puls i better than I do. In "Winter' Tale" he says: — pole primroses That die unmarried, ere they can behold Briuht Phoebus In his stretn a tuaiadu Most im-idrn' to maids. II doesn't harm the primrose plant to pick the flower, you 11 be glad lo hear, but you shouldn i dig up the roots until the flowers have, died down. Fresh primrose leave* chopped up in sa'nd are a substitute for tottuse.

Has £230 Millions Headache I h*ii ttnbh #•/ffirfon'M Ifcfs/ Hit IMIar Trail** By FRFDrkKK COOK NEW YORK. THK huge synthetic rubber factories America built in wartime, when the Japanese cut off Malayan supplies of the real thing, have developed into one of the biggest post-war headaches for this country. Sines the middle of 1947, leaders of the lyre and rubber industries, top Army brasshats and Government experts have been deep in discussions about what to do wilh them The discussions are still poing on. And no solution is in sight: The problem America faces is this: Shall the factories be kept going;, holding* down the amount of natural rubber America imports? MUM; DOLLARS If the answer is Yes, that means w t e-rn fewer dollars in Malaya. And that nn.ans the U.S. taxpayer has to go on finding dollar.-, under the Marshall Plan, or we have to cut U.S. buying still more. Or Shall the factories close, throwing thousands out of work? If the answer to that is Yes, can the Truman advisers weather the trade union storm? Far mere importantly, can America be sure that in a future war her rubber supplies will not again be cut off? Is it a risk she dare take? There are more than £23>t millions In Cli-vernmrnt-uwned factories involved. •SELL THEM' The original post-war talks resulted in the 194B Rubber Act. which runs only until June 30 this year. In mid-January President Truman sought to end the deadlock with a plan to sell the to private industry "as soon as possible' 1 ami to accompany the deal with regulations and restrictions aimed at preventing a price war between natural rubber and svnthetic. Uut his close adviser, Mr. J. R. Sleelman, has admitted: "No permanent or long-range solution to many of the problems has been found." STATE MONOPOLY OR .. Tied up with the dilemma in which Washington linds itself are issues which cannot be brushed aside, like Government ownership of a monopoly or private enterprise. At stake, too. are the 9,400.000 acres of rubber trees owned and cultivated by Americas friends—ourselves, the Dutch and the French. Core of the whole business is national defence. The President's latest report stated flatly .hat rubber was "indispensable." BEST MEN QUITTING' Yet a trade leader, pointing out that Communist revolutionaries in the Far East were a grave threat to a steady rubber supply, said gloomily: "This country cannot really count on a single ton. "The rubber estates could produce over 2 million tons a year, but last year's output was less than 1 £00.000. .. ._ "The real reason Is that many of the best estate managers are quitting. They eat and! sleep with a gun beside them and they aref gottms tired of it. They can't take it any more." 1ft FACTORIES SOLD The majority of America's synthetic capacity is still either producing or in itand by condition. Effective capacity of the VA industry is said to be 800,000 tons annually, enough to keep the country going if non-essential uses were trimmed away. Of this total, the present law demands that 600.000 capacity be kept either in use or ready to produce within 90 days. Eighteen Government factories have already been sold, at about a third of their %  uii;in:il c..st.
