Ask About
Barbadians
In Bermuda

(From Our Own Correspondent)

LONDON, May 11.

The future of Barbadians pres-
ently employed in the Naval
Dockyard, Bermuda, will: be
raised in the House of Commons.
The question on the subject is to
be put down either by Mr. Peter
Smithers or Mr. L. D, Gammans,
Both are members of the West
Indies sub-Committee of the Con-
servative Party Imperial Affairs
Committee.

Colonel Nicholas Dill who led
the recent Bermudian delegation
to London told our correspondent
at the time that about 500 Barba-
dians will be affected by the close
of the dockyard. He added there
was little chance of their being
absorbed in other jobs in. the
colony.

Over Hong Kong
Troop Block

LONDON, May. 11.

Mr. J. C. Hutchinson British
Charge D’Affaires in Peking had
an interview with the Chinese
Deputy Foreign Minister last
Monday, the first meeting since
Marth 17, it was learned here to-
day. n

Mr. Hutchinson was handed a
Chinese note of protest against
the restrictions on the movement
of Chinese immigrants through
Hongkong introduced by the
colony’s Government at the end of
April,

A British Foreign Office spokes-
man today declined to say whetn-
er there had been any further
discussion of the resumption of
diplomatic relations between the
two countries at the interview.
But some development in these
negotiations now five months old
was not ruled out by observers
here,

At the previous meeting between
the British Charge D’Affaires
and a Chinese Foreign Office rep-
resentative Mr. Hutehinson re-
plied to inquiries about British
policy on disputed Chinese prop-
erty in British hands including 7/1
aircraft in Hongkong.

Buenos Aires
Back To Normatcy

BUENOS AIRES, May 11.
All Argentine meat-packing es-
tablishments were back to normal
this morning as a result of the re-
sumption of work by all workers
following failure of the brief
strike. Some groups of meat
workers who favour affiliation
with the state-sponsored C.G.T.
called on the Perons yesterday
and the visiti.g Minister of La-
bour today. Despite the return to
work, workers claims are still
unsatisfied’ so that. new negotia-
tions between packers and work-
ers can be expected although if
the latter are to obtain any offi-
cial assistance it will have to be

through the mediwn of C.G.T.

All of these wells have been of
an exploratory nature and were
drilled in search of new potential
oil horizons, Two were success-
ful oil producers and one was a
gas well; the fourth found only

‘salt water at depth and was com-

pleted as a pumping well in shal-

| lower sands.

The well just completed is cur-
rently producing from a depth of
10,500 feet and is thus the deepest
oil producing well in Trinidad.
This well was drilled to the 10,000
feet level in only 93 days which
was a record for drilling opera-
tions to this depth in Trinidad.

Two of the new heavy 10/15,000
feet Diesel Engine driven drilling
rigs used for these wells are now
being installed at new exploitation
locations to deep horizons; a third
is drilling a deep exploration lo-
cation, and a fourth heavy rig
is due to be operating in the near
future.”

“confession” from a member gj

Navy privateer bomber lost over

They knew that four Russian

the coast of “Russian occupied

They also know that the plane
was on fire before it hit the
water. He said the Government

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua, May 11.

WHEN Lord Baldwin leaves Antigua on June 2

by the “Gascogne,’’ he will be taking with
him tall 28-year-old, Antiguan-born Corporal Eg-
bert W. Francis.
Considered the luckiest native in the island to-day,
smart Corporal Francis from the day of Baldwin's
arrival, March 28, 1948, has been the Governor's
orderly, has driven his car on almost all official

occasions, and travelled to other Presidéncies with
him Over a year ago, Lord Baldwin

a offered to take him to England at
the end of his term of office. Until
recently, Francis had little hope
of seeing the Mother Country for
a very long time, but with. this
morning’s official announcement
of Baldwin’s resignation, .ie die
is cast. Francis, all smiles, said
“T am booked to sail on or about
June 2 on the Gascogne with Lord
Baldwin.”

BY THE WAY By Beachcomber

COFFERS ask how on earth
the action of paddle and pump
will be able to get the Strabismus
rocket into the air. They are not
required to. They only come into
action when the rocket is in the
air.

Under the rocket, suspended by
chains is an enormous iron
basket filled with straw, When

this straw is lit, it warms the air
around the rocket, and so enables
it to float up from the ground, on
the principle of the Montgolfier
balloon of 1783. The main prob-
lem is to store a sufficient supply

of straw in the rocket, and the
sage has solved this by a new
system of compression. With this

method a ton of straw can fit into
a matchbox. When needed as fuel,
it is depostolised by Nuckthorpe
rays, and then forked into the
iron basket as needed. This is the
surest system for slow travel in
the air, and is the reply to pre-
vious failures to reach the moon
by high speed methods.

Trial ascent

N a tial ascent, carried out in
secret, Strabismus took with
ina.Jarge cage, a sheep, a

SPEC

him,

cat, and a sparrow, to observe
the effect of atmospherics. The
sheep, choked by smoke from the
straw, kicked the cat, which fell
against the door of the cage and
knocked it open, The sparrow
flew away. A tongue of flame,
out of control, burned Professor
Ranger’s hat. After reaching a
height of 345 ft., the ballon-
paddle—rocket came to earth in a
railway siding. It was found that
the sheep had eaten two pounds
of reserve straw and a bit of rope.
The cat fainted on alighting and
was taken care of by Mrs, Utter-
leigh, of Larch End, Dibbles-
borough.

Stockbroker’s love song

When Trixie rambles
Among the brambles,

She gets her stocking torn;
And what is worse is
She storms, and curses

The day that she wus born,
Sharp thorns scratch her,

The whole thing’s too absurd.
I follow after,
Sick with laughter,

Unable to say a word.

Thanksgiving
Fund Reaches
£ 500.000

From Our London Correspondent,
LONDON.

The Lord Mayor has already re-
ceived £543,758 on behalf of the
National Thanksgiving Fund
which he launched six weeks ago
in appreciation of the generosity
'o Britain during war-time of the
people of the Commonwealth and
the United States.

Contributions are reaching the
Mansion House at the rate of
£5,000 a day. This does not take
account of the money collected by
local authorities or by Post Offices
since the end of March.

The reaching of the half millipn
mark has brought action from two
brothers, both overseas students in
London. Messrs. D. H. R. and
P. F. R. White asked that their
names should head the list of over-
seas students to be accommodated
in the new £2 million residential
centre that the sponsors of the
Fund hope to build.

The White Brothers come from
Capetown, South Africa. They
are both scholarship students on
au tive year course at the Royal
Academy of Arts. Asked to give
his opinion on the purpose of the
Fund, Mr. D. H. R. White, the
elder of the two, added:

_ “We think the National Thanks-
giving Fund is a magnificent ges-
ture on the part of the British pub-
lic. Nothing is more desperately
needed by overseas students like
my brother and myself than a
residential hall in London where
we can live within our means and
in surroundings fitted to our
studies. We live in most pleasant
lodgings in Wimbledon, but we do
not want to live in lodgings—we
want to live in a residential hall
in the midst of everything, and
part of the student life in London

“And we mean London It is
the capital of the Commonwealth,
and that is the centre of things
for us, and where we want to be.”

That was his answer to the eri-
tics Who object to a memorial -con-
centrated in London.

£200,000
WANTED

(From Our London Correspondent)

fe LONDON.

[Two hundred thousand pounds
will have to be raised to obtain
a sports ground and club house
for all colonial students in London

This figure was mentioned to
me by Sir Sidney Abrahams.
ce eairman of the five-man planning
committee set up to deal with this
particular issue of student welfare.

Sir Sidney, a former British
Olympic representative who took
part in the 1906 and 1912 Games,
18S noW a member of the Legal
Department of the Colonial ce.

His committée were mentioned
in a Parliamentary question last
week when Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked Mr, James Griffiths what
progress had been made in the
acquisition of the sports ground.

Question of Funds

Mr. Griffiths’ reply was that the
committee had prepared a scheme
for a sports club for all colonials,
in¢luding their friends, and that
they were now considering the
question of raising funds.

Sir Sidney told me: “We want
to obtain a large sports ground
with a-running track, cricket and
Soccer and rugger pitches” he said.

“The Club house we want to be
something more than just a
pavilion. We may try and get one
or two bedrooms for people who,
under special circumstances, want
to spend the night and we want
it to have all the latest amenities”.

Sir Sidney and his committee
are expecting to meet again shortly
when they will decide on ways
and means by which they can
raise the necessary £200,000.

Any Extreme”

To Avoid Signing Treaty

WASHINGTON, May 11.

Mr. James Webb United States
Assistant Secretary of State said
today that Russia was apparently
prepared “to go to any extreme”
to avoid signing the Austrian
Peace Treaty.

Questioned at a press conference
about a report in the Soviet paper
Pravda that the treaty was de-
pendent on the Internationalisa-
tion of Trieste he said no one
could be deceived by such tac-
tics.

Mr. Webb said the restoration
of Austrian independence was
“an aim which the United States

has certainly pressed for since
1946.
“In contrast it appears that

Austrian freedom and independ-
ence are the last things that the
Soviet Union desires despite its
participation in the Moscow
Declaration, and that it will go
to any extreme to think up
excuses to avoid this result.”
Now the excuse has’ been
stretched further afield to Trieste,
No one can be deceived by such
tactics or the purpose they hide
to delay fulfilment of a solemn
international commitment towards
the people of Austria. —Reuter

*‘Propaganda”’

LONDON, May 11.

A British foreign office spokes-
man today described as “propa-
ganda move” the forecast by East
German officials that Russia would
shortly announce a sharp cut in
the reparations to be paid by
Germany

He said it was clearly designed
to offset the “disastrous impres-
sion’ made by’ the Soviet
announcement that Russia had no
more prisoners of war to repatri-
ate.

The spokesman
effect of any reduction ‘in
reparations requirements would
be ficticious so long as more than
25 per cent of the eastern zone’s
heavy industry was owned by
Soviet trusts and so long as Ger-
man exports to Russia were sold

at 1936 prices and _ imports
charged for at current prices”.

NEW YORK.

MAN is losing his battle with
the machine, In New York a de-
monstration has just been given of
a loudspeaker device, linked with
an electronic ray, for use in the
grocer’s. As you pass the bread
counter, it will mutter in your ear,
“Don’t forget to take a new loaf.”

Pass by the canned beer, and
it will say: “Aren't you thirsty to-
day? Try a can of nice, ice-cold
beer. It's so-o-o0 refreshing!"*

In Syrachse, New York, they
have installed a talking traffic
light. When the signal goes red
this monster will thunder at pe-
destrians: “No! No! You can’t cross

“All right. Walk!”

In the petrol stations they now

‘sDoesn’t your oil need changing?
Old oil can ruin new engines.” Or,
“About time you get a new set of
sparkplugs. When did you change
them last?”

Some of man’s new weapuns

against weeds and animal pest are |that America is going to have

“back-firing” badly.

From the Middle West comes
word that spraying with DDT has

being decimated by spraying of
weeds along river banks,

Women are being warned to be

}¢oal and steel pool proposed by

French Foreign Minister vest |




By





Sehuman as “a constructive at-
jtempt to solve some of Europe's
| basic economic problems.”

| Seeing the proposal as no threat
to the British industry so far as
details of the scheme are at pres-
ent known they took the view that
| tt was a healthy sign of real plan-
ning and cooperation.

London merchant bankers with
| close continental associations com-
= enthusiastically on the



proposal.

While recognising the difficul-
ties ahead they said that the ver-
dict of history might ultimately be
that the present French initiative
was nothing less thai the start of

|a new era.

British steel industrialists adopt-
ed their attitude of cordial neu-
trality in so far as the s¢heme
would impact on the British in-
dustry on the assumption that
there would be only a pooling of
general policy and of techniquy

without tight detailed control by
the proposed central authority,

organisation might prevent a repe-
tition of the pre-war dumping
when some steel was exported at
below production costs simply to

With the approach of the start

for better class issues.

British Government short dated

Steel Band Governor

“It’s not what you do, but the way that
you do it.”

These words from a popular song sum
up the affaire Baldwin as neatly perhaps
as the modern world can sum anything up.

Earl Baldwin came to the West Indies
straight from the arena of British party pol-
itics.

He is a Socialist of the “old-school-tie-
school”, who wears his school-tie with a
difference.

He can behave as a Governor with an
unorthodoxy which no other Governor of
the conventional Civil Service school could
dare to emulate and retain his post for
long.

Earl Baldwin is a nobleman and to him
the poor of Antigua deserve more sympathy
than is required for understanding the
social differentiations of a small island com-
munity.

He is a man of culture, a soldier, an
author, a traveller and by birth an associ-
ate with most of the great ones ‘of his gen-
eration.

But his appointment to the governorship
of the Leeward Islands at a time when
nobility of birth or Socialism was ineffec-
tual to rewind the clock of civil adminis-
tration there, was unfortunate.

The misfortune was pointed out at the

time by most of the informed. In spite of
the triumphant reception by steel bands
and by thousands who welcome him when
he returned from his Pyrrhie victory in
London the misfortune has proved to be
true. The Antigua which Lord Baldwin
leaves, is considered to be an Antigua
where much more might have been achiev-
ed if only the Governor had been a trained
administrator. Lord Baldwin will be re-
membered as the Governor who out of his
pocket paid for politicians to have free
courses at Ruskin College. He will be re-
membered as the Governor who saved
Dead Man’s Chest from going into the
hands of an American proprietor. He will
be remembered as the Governor who gave
a banner to the steel bands and he will be-
come known in West Indian history as the
Patron of steel bands, poets, painters and
musicians. His Government House will be
remembered as the Government House
where shorts and beer were not consider-
ed beneath the dignity of the King’s repre-
sentatives in the tropics.
- In Barbados he will be remembered as
the Governor who walked from Govern-
ment House and did his own shopping.
He will no doubt leave behind in the Lee-
wards a circle of friends who have profited
from their acquaintance with perhaps ‘one
of the most colourful figures of the other-
wise largely prosaic England of to-day.

The Leewards were unfortunate in the
timing of Lord Baldwin’s arrival but the
fact of his presence in the British Carib-
bean has been productive of one certain
result. Lord Baldwin has destroyed the
pare of the Englishman in his stiff col-
ar. If he had had the talents of an admin-
istrator in one half the measure that he
has the talents of an artist, the Leewards
might have reached a stage of develop-
ment which would have made the closer
association of the West Indies more attain-
able than it seems at present.

But Lord Baldwin could not do things in
the conventional way and his resignation
before completing a normal term of 5
years is not surprising. His successor who
is a Civil Servant born and bred will have
a colossal task before him. What happens
in the Leewards is of vital concern to all
the islands where the proposal of federa-
tion is due for discussion by legislatures
now. If Lord Baldwin had achieved nothing
else than a reminder that there are other
islands in the West Indies besides our own,
he would have achieved much. But the West
Indies owe him gratitude for something
else. Lord Baldwin was never afraid to
speak his mind and if West Indians came
in for criticism the Colonial Office got their
fair ration.



Victory

THE VICTORY of the West Indies
cricket team yesterday over the strong
Yorkshire eleven will do much to hearten
not only the players themselves, but
every follower of the game in these parts.
Under trying conditions the West Indies
put up a grand fight, characterised through
all its stages by the traditional dogged-
ness of the northern county on the one
hand, and the determination of their op-
ponents to do well right from the start
of their tour, on the other. This evens
the score in victories between Yorkshire
and the West Indies, each now having
won twice, and when they meet later
in this tour, there will be, no doibt
another dour struggle for supremacy.

‘ The weather up to now has not been
very kind toâ„¢the cricketers from these
Sunny isles, and the first game of the
tour proper, against Worcester, was wash-
ed out after only seven hours play in
three days. With ardour not dampened
by this start the West Indies players
threw themselves irito this game against
the joint county champions, and secur-
ing an early advantage, never relaxed in
their march to a hard won victory. This
win will be a tonic in the English weather.

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE



W.sT. Industrialization

The case for rapid industrial-
ization in the British West Indies
rests chiefly on over population in

relation to existing agricultural re-
sources. IndQstrialization is not
an alternative to agricultural im-
provement. Agriculture cannot be
put onto a basis where it will yield
a reasonable standard of living
unless new jobs are created off
the land. Tax holiday legislation
alone will not attract industries to
the West Indies. It is not true
that an industry cannot be estab-
lished successfully .if the raw
materials are not produced locally;
nor is it true that if the raw
materials are produced locally, it
is ipso facto economic to process
them on the spot. British West
Indian industrial development
should be aimed at the export
market rather than at the domestic
market, especially markets in
Latin America, the United King-



dom and the United States. West
Indian political opinion should
welcome outside capital in indus-
trial development, which is much
less “dangerous” than similar in-
vestment in agriculture or mining,
though local legislation is needed
to protect the interests of the
workers employed in these enter-
prises. Established manufacturers
in the Metropolitan countries,
should, wherever possible, be per-
suaded to set up branches in the
West Indies. A _ British West
Indian Industrial Development
Corporation is necessary to supply
the drive, initiative and planning
needed to build up the momentum
for a successful industrialization
programme. This _ corporation
should have offices in London and
New York to make and follow up
contacts with potential clients and
to attract established manufac-
turers to the West Indies. A major
function of such a corporation
would be to furnish guidance and
accurate information to likely
prospects on matters of law, taxa-
tion, currency regulations, import
controls, labour, availability of
power, supplies, raw materials,
factory sites, transportation, an-
cillary services and similar mat-
ters. Also, it would perform the
services of a liaison agent be-
tween prospective manufacturers
and government departments, the
business community, and organised
labour. It should be prepared to
build factories or install machinery
in them, or both, for lease to
responsible and qualified opera-
tors, and even operate new fac-
tories until private operators for
them can be found. A _ British
West Indian Industrial Develop-
ment Bank would be helpful in
furthering an _ industrialization
programme.

These are the views expressed
by Professor W. Arthur Lewis,
originally of St. Lucia, and now
Stanley Jevons, Professor of Polit-
ical Economy at the University of
Manchester, England, in an article

published in the current issue of
the Caribbean Economic Review,
publication of which was announc-
ed today by Mr. Lawrence W.
Cramer, Secretary General of the
Caribbean Commission. The ar-
ticle was prepared by Professor
Lewis in response to a request by
the Caribbean Commission for a
study of criteria for determining
the suitability of various manu-
facturing industries for Caribbean
territories. In preparation of this
study Professor Lewis last summer
visited Puerto Rico, Jamaica,
British Guiana and Trinidad, An--
other aspect of this problem was
treated by Professor Lewis in an
analysis of the industrialization
programme of Puerto Rico, which
was published at the end of last
year in the preceding issue of the
Caribbean Econom'e Review.
Based on the correlation of u
number of different criteria, Pro-
fessor Lewis concludes that the
following industries are those best
adapted tor the British West Indies
in their present economic situa-
tion: hosiery, leather, the garment
industry, footwear, china, the
paper trades, glass, building ma-
terials, canning, the textile indus-
tries, plastics, rubber goods, olec-

tric switches, toys, and eleciric
lights. Expansion and develop-
ment in the metal trades,
that is finishing in-

dustries based on imported ingots
désigned to produce such products
as agricultural implements, cut-
lery, pins, nails, screws, and the
general run of foundry products
and ironmongery, he considers
favourable and of special impor-
tance. Assembling industries,
such as the assembling and finish-
ing of imported parts into radio
sets, bicycles, and similar articles,
are stressed as having favourable
possibilities. Two of the indus-
tries which figure prominently in
contemporary West Indian discus-
sions of industrial development
are considered by Professor Lewis
as among the less favourable pos-
sibilities—grain milling and sugar
refining. As a basis for his con-
clusion that British West Indian
industrial development should be
aimed at the export market rather
than at the domestic market alone,
Professor Lewis cites the fact that,
in the older industrial countries
like Great Britain and the United
States, the tendency is to empha-
sise the heavy, mass production
industries. He points out that
European countries and Puerto
Rico have found it possible to
secure a market in the United
States for the products of their
lighter industry. “What Puerto
Rico and the countries of Europe
can do,” says Professor Lewis, ‘‘the
British West Indies can do also if
they put their backs into the job.”
He does not disregard the value
of the local market in the British
West Indies, but considers that it
cannot be fully and satisfactorily

exploited until, among other re-
quirements, a British West Indian
customs union has been establish-
ed,

In Professor Lewis’ opinion,
“successful industrialization de-
mands self-confidence, drive, ini-
tiative and soundly conceived
policies.” He finds that these are
not always present. in those who
have formal responsibility for the
development of industrialization
Seer ih the territories.

is drive, he believes, might be
supplied by-the establishment of
a British West Indian Industrial
Development Corporation similar
to those of Peurto Rico, South
Africa and several Latin American
Republics, and to the . former
special area Commissioners in the
United Kingdom. In this connec-
tion, he states that federation of
the British West Indies is neces-
sary to supply adequate base for a
British West Indian Industriai
Development Corporation.

Professor Lewis concludes his
analysis as follows: “The British
islands do not have far to look if
they want to study the technique
of industrialization. For, on their
very doorstep lies Puerto Rico,
whose Industrial Development
Company is a most intelligent
model of what is required.....
Some key, is needed to open the
door behind which .the dynamic
energies of the West Indian people
are at present confined. The key
has obviously been found in Puerto
Rico, where the drive and enthu-
siasm of people hitherio as lethar-
gic as the British West Indians,
warms the heart and inspires con-
fidence in the future. The British
West Indies can solve their prob-
lems if they set to them with a
will. But first they must find the
secret that will put hope, initiative,
direction, and an unconquerable
will into the management of their,
affairs. And this is the hardest
task of all.”

Mr. Cramer declared that the
views expressed in the article
were those of Dr. Lewis. They
do not necessarily represent the
views of the Caribbean Commis-
sion, or of. its Central Secretariat.
They are, however, the views of
a profound student of West Indian
economy, who has put forward
concrete and reasoned proposals
which, in Mr. Cramer’s opinion,
deserved careful consideration by
all officials, planners, legislatures,
Chambers of Commerce and inter-
ested citizens in the West Indies.
“It is my hope,” he declared,
“that Professor Lewis’ proposals
may serve as a basis for discussion
leading to the development of an
acceptable plan or plans for in-
dustrialization in the British Ca-
ribbean, and, in fact, in all Carib-
bean territories, which will chan-
nel and tap the initiative, the
energy and the resourcefulness of
their people.”

Shopping And Parking

RESOLUTIONS concerning the
General Hospital and the Shops
Closing Act occupied the House
of Assembly at last. Tuesday’s
meeting, both brought forward by
Dr, H. G., Cummins. In the case
of the latter Resolution, it was
perhaps as well for those in favour
of the exempting from closing df
shops selling fresh fruit, vegeta-

bles and B.W.I1, handicrafts
that Mr. Adams returned to his
seat when he did, for Dr.

Cummins, who appeared extreme-
ly hesitant and vaguely lost in a
maze of notes and papers, was
experiencing considerable difficul-
ty in establishing his major point
—that the Resolution was intend-
ed purely to avoid wastage of
perishable goods. Mr. Adams,
however, who. had been absent
from his chair for over half an
hour, saved the situation with
some blunt speaking. Postpone-
ment of the Resolution would, hd
stressed, merely cause months of
delay and subsequent loss to the
‘Colony. He maintained that de-
fects in the Shops Closing Act
would take a great deal of tima
to adjust, and there was absolutely
no point in delaying the Resolu-
tion pending these adjustments.
Earlier in the discussion, Mr, J. H.
Wilkinson had suggested that a
squad of detectives might be re-
quired to make sure that shops
selling fruits and vegetables did
not make sales of other commodi-
ties as well during the “exempt
hours,” and for this Mr. Adams
had a remedy. “It should not be
so expensive,” said the Leader of
the House, “to erect a physical
barrier between what may be sold
and what may not be sold.” Judg-
ing by the groans from the oppo-
site side of the table, this sugges-
tion did not find great favour
with the Opposition. One had
momentary visions of barbed wire
and policemen separating counters
of fresh tomatoes from their
brothers in tins. Mr. Adams men-
tioned the name of a certain well
known local drug store in which
he had seen a police officer pur-
chase a camera on a Sunday
morning, and his following up of
this incident with the statement
that while goods other than drugs
were on display they were not

necessarily being sold seemed
somewhat ironic, Mr, Adams +
profound sympathy for the rural
shopkeeper—even admitting that
he did not know how they man-
aged to keep alive! His jocular
suggestion that their only hope
was to keep the police out of the
district caused no little amuse-
ment. From what I have seen of
rural shops, most of them re-
semble, naturally on a smaller
scale, the general country store of
the United States, selling anythiny
and everything they can. Few
surely would hesitate to make
other sales along with a pound of
green beans if the chance present-
ed itself.

Mr. Garner, in a fiercely aggres-
sive ten minutes, stressed the
plight of the rural shopkeeper,
and the rural residents. Shouted
he, “Many shopkeepers work hard
to feed the poor of the country—
some of you people don’t know
what it’s all about! He emphasised
the problems of dealing with the
man with no money to pay, using
the familiar axiom that credit,
essential fhough it is, often results
in the loss of the customer, the
cash—and everything. Angered by
the laughter of some listening
members, Mr. Garner’s wrath
knew no bounds and the possi-
bility of the Resolution being
postponed appeared strong at this
stage, the more so when Messrs
Dowding and Ward expressed
themselves in agreement with
Mr. Garner’s views. As has been
apparent on numerous occasions
at past meetings, the “poor man”
has no more arden! supporter than
the senior member for St. Philip,
who never hesitates to flay all and
sundry if he considers the oc-
easion demands it. There may be
some who consider Mr. Garner's
oratory carries too much vehem-
ence, his opinions too much bitter-
ness, but there can be few who
would question his sincerity.
Having completed his speech, Mr.
Garner became deeply engrossed
in a volume which he had brought
with him, called, as far as I could
see, “Africa — Britain’s Third
Empire.”



, The Parking Danger

Also passed last Tuesday was a
Resolution to approve the Parking
and Restricted Places amendment
Regulations of 1950, but not before
Mr, Fred Goddard had brought up
a matter which deserved far more
attention than it actually received
—the mad folly of cars parking on
corners and bends—often two or
three vehicles on either side of
the road. Mr. Goddard expressed
the opinion that this was more im-
portant than the Resolution before
the House, and one fails to see
how anyone who does any driv-
ing in this island can do else but
agree with him. One of the most
glaring examples, which can be
seen almost daily and hourly, was
mentioned—the situation outside
one of the Colony’s leading hotels,
in the Hastings area. Almost
opposite this hotel is a wide and
long parking space, an ideal situa-
tion, ableto take three cars abreast
comfortably. This space is con-
stantly ignored by drivers, who
line their cars immediately outside
the hotel on both sides of the road,
and a narrow road at that, The
chaos here at busy times, with
buses and bicycles adding to the
confusion, makes one marvel, as
Mr. Goddard stated, that the num-
ber of accidents is not much
greater. Mr. Goddard recommends
a law prohibiting the parking, and
even the stopping, of cars on bends
and corners. It is to be hoped that
the powers that be heed this wise
suggestion in rapid time.

The Resolution creating new
posts and higher salaries at the
General Hospital was duly passed,
but not without criticism. As ex-
plained by Dr. Cummins, the end
of June would see the hospital
minus a Resident Surgeon, and
the end of the present day (Tues-
day), minus a Medical Superin-
tendent—certainly an alarming
state of affairs. In recent weeks,
four doctors have left the hospital,
and, according to Mr. Mottley,
local medical men who have been
working in the hospital are also
anxious to “say goodbye.” The
affairs and conditions at the hos-
pital have been headline news
for some time nuw, and it is not
desirable that such should be the
case,

The Public Want To Know

To the Editor, The Advocate—

Str,—The public are grateful to
the Honourable J. D. Chandler for
giving them the facts in connec-
tion with the shutting down or the
proposed shutting down of the Gas
Well at Turner Hall and his will-
ingness to allow the _ British
Union Oil Company and _ their
readiness to continue supplying
the public with Gas when the
Government permitted.

The public on the other hand
are shocked at the Government's
handling of the entire affair, as
after all they are servants of the
people. The situation might have
been serious had the Attorney of
Turner Hall and the British Union
Oil Company stood on their dig-
nity for a few days.

The General public who use gas
for cooking would have been ex-
pensed in obtaining substitutes for
the gas ranges and ovens, and

many of the Companies, such as
the Soap and Lard manufacturers
would have been forced to dismiss
their employees as a result of the
failure to obtain gas. It is not
known who is responsible first, for
the secrecy and secondly, for the
mess made but the general feeling
is that the public are entitled to
know everything in connection

with the matter.
TAXPAYER.

Darkness
To the Editor, The Advocate—

Sm,—It is natural for man to
indulge in the illusions of hope,
but we are apt to shut our eyes
against the painful truth.

Is it our lot to remain in the
land of darkness and the sea of
misery all our years? Is there any
possible assistance which will en-
able us the poor remnants of our
poverty-stricken ancestors to move

one step forward into light? Those
in power seem as though they are
given away to lethargy.

Unemployment has declared war
upon us and we are unable to
fight. The disastrous diseases of
squalor and want have bound us
hand and foot, and all that is left
to us is to bow in supplication and
submission before the throne.

We are given a hope once in
every two years (just a little be-
fore the party war bégins) when
various politicians come to prom-
ise us the “Promised Land”,

We lend them our aid, and after
they have climbed to the top of
the ladder, they in turn kick it
away and leave us in the land of
despair.

Shall we ever see our way?

| Sugar Cane Root Borer

THE purpose of this article is to atevet
firstly as a reminder, where necessary, that |
there exists in Barbados a sugar cane pest
known as the “root borer” (Diaprepes
abbreviatus) which can cause serious dam-

age to cane cultivation, and secondly as a
warning that unless preventive measures
are initiated this year to control it, the pest
may become so numerous and widespread
that considerable losses of cane and there-
fore also of both sugar and revenue will be

sustained,

There is no intention of raising an exag-
gerated or disproportionate alarm over the
situation, but it is as well that the facts be
faced.

The damage which this pest can cause is
well known to most of those who were en-
gaged in sugar cane planting during the
nineteen twenties and nineteen _ thirties.
Those who do not know of this pest should
read the records of the Department of Agri-
dulture on the subject and the report of the
Root Borer Commission of 1919. The damage
caused by root borer is often not appreci-
ated until it has assumed such large propor-

tions as 5 or 10 tons of cane lost per acre.

An average loss of only half a ton of cane

an acre would mean a loss of $200.000 to
the industry.

Neither sugar cane, nor any other plant,
can be successfully cultivated if its roots
are attacked and destroyed. There have been
numerous indications and several direct
proofs within recent years that the root
borer of sugar cane is at work in various
districts scattered throughout the Island
destroying the roots of sugar cane.

The present position therefore is that it
will be taking an undue risk to allow the
industry to be jeopardised again, as it un-
doubtedly has been in the past, by sudden
outbreaks or steady building up of this

serious root pest.

Preventive measures may not be popular,
but prevention of losses is essential under
present economic conditions. Damage which
might have shown up seriously this year
has largely been masked by excellent rain-
fall since last August, but the need for or-
ganising preventive action still remains.

There are two main methods of control-
ling the root borer pest — namely (i) by
hand collection of the beetles, and (ii) by
treatment of the soil with an _ insecticide.
Certain tillage operations also help to des-
troy the pest in the grub or “borer” stage,
but for other reasons it is unwise to practice

| these operations on some soil types.

Not enough is known yet in Barbados
about the treatment of the soil with Gam-
mexene as a means of controlling root borer,
but the Department of Agriquiture is taking
steps to acquire the necessary information

as quickly as possible.

Until another and better method of con-
trolling root borer is fully demonstrated in
Barbados, the old method of hand collecting
beetles must be resorted to as a temporary
control measure. Hand collection of beetles
should be organised this year on the same
‘scale as in the period between 1930 and
| 1940. Most sugar cane planters know what
to do and some are already taking individ-
ual action, but to be fully effective hand
collection must be undertaken co-operative-
ly between all cane growers on an, island-

borer. All planters making collections of
beetles, or finding root borer grubs in the
stumps of ratoon fields during ploughing, or
who have reason to suspect that root borer
grubs are attacking this year’s young plant
cane fields, should at once notify the Direc-
tor of Agriculture so that a reasonable estim-
ate of the present status of root borer can
be made.

The control of sugar cane root borer is a
matter of concern to the entire community
in Barbados, Almost everyone, and not only
the sugar cane growers, depend directly or|
indirectly upon the revenue derived from
the sugar industry— any factor which tends
to reduce total sugar production is a matter
of concern for all and has adverse reper-
cussions throughout the entire community.

It is hoped therefore that during the com-
ing months when root borer beetles may be
expected to emerge, everyone will co-oper-
ate in making possible the collection, des-
truction and notification of all root borer
beetles and grubs which can be found.

Tourists—Biggest Year
Since War
By Frederick Cook
NEW YORK.

This looks like being the best year since the war
ended for American tourists in Europe, including
Britain. Official estimates are that some 345,000
Americans will be crossing the Atlantic.

All tourist agencies and shipping companies, as
well as the airlines, report that the demand for
space is “terrific”.

Says Mr. Malcolm La Prade, of Thomas Cook's
offce in New York; “Our bookings are running 45
to 50 per cent ahead of last year already.

“But we are being limited in what we might do
by shortage of transport facilities and of hotel
accommodation abroad.”

VERY HEAVY

Mr. Joseph Brennan, of United States Lines, says:
“Our bookings are exceptionally heavy. We are
considerably ahead of a year ago.”

The Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth are full
to the end of July. In the tourist class, they are
booked until August.

The French Line, Holland-America Line, Ameri-
can Export, Norwegian American, Gdynia America,
Swedish American and the smaller companies all
give the same réport—‘Nothing’ at the moment.”

Soon after she heard that he had
fallen and she ran down the hill
and saw that he was lying in a
deep trench on the left side of
the road. The bicycle was. also
off the hill.

Harold Nurse a labourer of

he knew Best well. and on Sat-

was going down Callender Road
towards Thornbury Hill. Two
men passed him on bicycles and
he recognized one of them as
Best.

Before he reached the foot of
the hill he heard someone say that
a man had fallen over the guard
wall. He went and “looked over
the guard wall and saw a man

lying on the bank next to the
trench. A man called Jerome
Durant helped him to lift the

body. He later recognized the man
to be Whitford Best who lived at

THE WEST INDIES, though given a fright, gained their

first victory of the tour by
wickets in two days here.

Not since 1906 have the West

Indies beaten the County. This was Yorkshire’s third de-

Finn Wants All
Countries InGames
Stadium Finished

COPENHAGEN, May li,
Erik V. Frenckell, a Finnish
member of the International
Olympic Committee which meets
here next Sunday, said to-day that
he would like to see all countries
represented at the 15th Olympiad

to be held at Helsinki in 1952.
“I can well understand that
small nations, which have suffered
during occupation and war find it
difficult to accept the presence of
all nations,” he said, “but they
must forget; otherwise we shall
never have peace in the world.
Youth must not be taught hatred.”
Frenckell said that the Commit -
tee is in touch with Russia, but he
could not say more, “No doubi
apan will be represented,” he
added, “but Germany is the prob-
lem. I hope this country is allow-
ed to come. The whole purpose of
the Olympic idea is that the entire
world should meet at a sports fes-

tival.”
Stadium Ready

The stadium in which the games
are,to be held is now finished and
will be opened in June on the oc-
easion of Helsinki’s 300th anni-
versary. It will hold 70,000. Sales
of tickets for the games will start
on September 1, 1951, and Frenc-
kell said to-day that he expected
they would be sold out within a
week. Half the tickets will be
reserved for Finland, where it is
expected up to 2,000,000 Finns will
want to see the games.

Asked whether he expected
archery to be included in the 1952
programme, Frenckell said he did
not. “There is not a chance in a
thousand,” he added, ‘there are at
feast 10 other sports which need a
place in the programme.

In giving a good display the

tourists showed themselves to be

a thoroughly competent side. The

belief that they might not be able §

to adapt themselves to the pecu-
liarities of difficult English pitches
was in this match at least proved
unfounded.

Admittedly some of their lead-
ing batsmen did‘not look happy
against the turning ball, but the
attack was distinctly formidable.

Prior Jones, West Indies fast
bowler, swung the ball away and
brought it back off the ground at
a good pace to capture seven
wickets for 29 runs. His perform-
ance indicated that when the
lively pitches arrive he will be a
threat to most batsmen.

Hutton alone mastered the West
Indies bowling and he scored
more than half of Yorkshire’s
total jn a stay of two and a quar-
ter hours, When the tourists bat-
ted a second time Yorkshire
bowled and fielded so well that
their opponents were definitely
uncomfortable. Rae, however, re-
mained imperturbable and more
sound batting by Walcott slowly
retrieved the position after early
reverses. Trestrail put West Indies
in sight of victory with a lively
innings, but even then Yorkshire
were not beaten. With five runs
still needed the sixth and seventh
wickets fell before Jones made
the winning hit.

The West Indies fast bowlers
found a little more life in the
eo here to-day and by lunch
ad claimed four Yorkshire second
{innings wickets for 81. York-
shire, 41 in arrears got off to a
bad start on the slightly soft pitch
in fine weather, With only eight
runs on the board Prior Jones
held an easy return catch to dis-
miss Lowson, and with the last
ball of the same over had Halli-
day leg-before without adding to
the score,

Lance Pierre occasionally over-
pitched but several of his out-
swingers and backbreaks caused
the batsmen concern. He gained
his reward when he bowled Les-
iter to make three wickets down
for nine. Hutton did not look com-
pletely at ease but he hooked
Jones for 6.

Three offside fours by Hutton
off Ramadhin showed the outfield
to be quite fast. Ramadhin and
Gomez made the ball turn, but
not with so much “bite” as on the
first day. Wilson helped to add
53 for the fourth wicket before
falling to a brilliant catch at the
wicket. Hutton completed a mas-
terly fifty in an hour and three
quarters,

Some
Jones,
mainly responsible for Yorkshire
being dismissed for 127 leaving
the West Indies to get 87 to win.

{Hutton played supremely con-
fident cricket for two hours and
a quarter while hitting a six and
four fours before he fell to a mis-
timed drive to deepish midon, to
end a determined rally by York-
shire. Yardley gave Jones an
easy return catch at 114 and six
runs later Smailes Coxon and
Wardle all fell at the same total,

Then came the West _ Indies
fight for the runs required for
victory, and there were many
tense moments before the tour-

ists won

Carlton Routs Boston

In Return Fixture

IN THEIR return football match with Everton at Ken-
sington yesterday, Carlton defeated their opponents by

The fine combination of -Carl-
ton’s forward line proved too
much for the Everton defence
which, though putting up a stub-
born resistance at the start, weak-
cned considerably in the second
ha'f of the game. Everton played
with ten men leaving the left
wing ‘unattended.

The Carlton forwards, Lucas,
R. Hutchinson, Cozier and Green-
idge were oitstanding, while
Warren, Clairmonte and A. Willi-

THE following are the results of
the Handicap Spoon Shoot which

valuable support.

From the start, Carlton kicking
towards the Pavilion goal assailed
their. opponents’ goal area. The
defence held firm however, and it
was not until about mid-way of
this first half that Greenidge on
the right wing sent in a high try
that obviously tricked the goal-
keeper. The ball went clear over
his head and settled in the right
corner of the nets.

Everton went about in search
of the equaliser immediately after
the kick-off, but though they
succeeded at some times in pierc-
ing Carlton's defence their for-
wards were not quick enough to
take advhntnge of the opportuni-
ties offered. The tussle was keen
for the remainder of the period
but no further goals were scored.

four goals to nil.

Two Up
Carlton went two up soon aftet
the game resumed. It was the

result of a fine piece of work by
the forward line who swept down
the field, Lucas playing at inside-

the ball with goal keeper Reece

Ask About
Barbadians
In Bermuda

(From Our Own Correspondent)

LONDON, May 11.

The future of Barbadians pres-
ently employed in the Naval
Dockyard, Bermuda, will: be
raised in the House of Commons.
The question on the subject is to
be put down either by Mr. Peter
Smithers or Mr. L. D, Gammans,
Both are members of the West
Indies sub-Committee of the Con-
servative Party Imperial Affairs
Committee.

Colonel Nicholas Dill who led
the recent Bermudian delegation
to London told our correspondent
at the time that about 500 Barba-
dians will be affected by the close
of the dockyard. He added there
was little chance of their being
absorbed in other jobs in. the
colony.

LONDON, May. 11.

Mr. J. C. Hutchinson British
Charge D’Affaires in Peking had
an interview with the Chinese
Deputy Foreign Minister last
Monday, the first meeting since
Marth 17, it was learned here to-
day. n

Mr. Hutchinson was handed a
Chinese note of protest against
the restrictions on the movement
of Chinese immigrants through
Hongkong introduced by the
colony’s Government at the end of
April,

A British Foreign Office spokes-
man today declined to say whetn-
er there had been any further
discussion of the resumption of
diplomatic relations between the
two countries at the interview.
But some development in these
negotiations now five months old
was not ruled out by observers
here,

At the previous meeting between
the British Charge D’Affaires
and a Chinese Foreign Office rep-
resentative Mr. Hutehinson re-
plied to inquiries about British
policy on disputed Chinese prop-
erty in British hands including 7/1

All of these wells have been of
an exploratory nature and were
drilled in search of new potential
oil horizons, Two were success-
ful oil producers and one was a
gas well; the fourth found only

‘salt water at depth and was com-

pleted as a pumping well in shal-

| lower sands.

The well just completed is cur-
rently producing from a depth of
10,500 feet and is thus the deepest
oil producing well in Trinidad.
This well was drilled to the 10,000
feet level in only 93 days which
was a record for drilling opera-
tions to this depth in Trinidad.

Two of the new heavy 10/15,000
feet Diesel Engine driven drilling
rigs used for these wells are now
being installed at new exploitation
locations to deep horizons; a third
is drilling a deep exploration lo-
cation, and a fourth heavy rig
is due to be operating in the near
future.”

WHEN Lord Baldwin leaves Antigua on June 2

by the “Gascogne,’’ he will be taking with
him tall 28-year-old, Antiguan-born Corporal Eg-
bert W. Francis.
Considered the luckiest native in the island to-day,
smart Corporal Francis from the day of Baldwin's
arrival, March 28, 1948, has been the Governor's
orderly, has driven his car on almost all official

occasions, and travelled to other Presidéncies with
him Over a year ago, Lord Baldwin

a offered to take him to England at
the end of his term of office. Until
recently, Francis had little hope
of seeing the Mother Country for
a very long time, but with. this
morning’s official announcement
of Baldwin’s resignation, .ie die
is cast. Francis, all smiles, said
“T am booked to sail on or about
June 2 on the Gascogne with Lord
Baldwin.”

It was unfortunate that ‘they

had been made in the Cast since
their last production. Allowing
for the general criticism, the
Players must be complimented
for yet another success in th@ir
now long role of successes.

The honours of the acting must

trayal of Mrs. de Winter was just

There is no doubt that the action
of Greta Bancroft as Mrs. Danvers
was the best action of the Play
but there was something—an in-
definable something—about her
diction which was not up to the
same standard as her action.

BY THE WAY By Beachcomber

COFFERS ask how on earth
the action of paddle and pump
will be able to get the Strabismus
rocket into the air. They are not
required to. They only come into
action when the rocket is in the
air.

Under the rocket, suspended by
chains is an enormous iron
basket filled with straw, When

this straw is lit, it warms the air
around the rocket, and so enables
it to float up from the ground, on
the principle of the Montgolfier
balloon of 1783. The main prob-
lem is to store a sufficient supply

of straw in the rocket, and the
sage has solved this by a new
system of compression. With this

method a ton of straw can fit into
a matchbox. When needed as fuel,
it is depostolised by Nuckthorpe
rays, and then forked into the
iron basket as needed. This is the
surest system for slow travel in
the air, and is the reply to pre-
vious failures to reach the moon
by high speed methods.

Trial ascent

N a tial ascent, carried out in
secret, Strabismus took with
ina.Jarge cage, a sheep, a

SPEC

him,

cat, and a sparrow, to observe
the effect of atmospherics. The
sheep, choked by smoke from the
straw, kicked the cat, which fell
against the door of the cage and
knocked it open, The sparrow
flew away. A tongue of flame,
out of control, burned Professor
Ranger’s hat. After reaching a
height of 345 ft., the ballon-
paddle—rocket came to earth in a
railway siding. It was found that
the sheep had eaten two pounds
of reserve straw and a bit of rope.
The cat fainted on alighting and
was taken care of by Mrs, Utter-
leigh, of Larch End, Dibbles-
borough.

Stockbroker’s love song

When Trixie rambles
Among the brambles,

She gets her stocking torn;
And what is worse is
She storms, and curses

Sharp thorns scratch her,

The whole thing’s too absurd.
I follow after,
Sick with laughter,

Unable to say a word.

Thanksgiving
Fund Reaches
£ 500.000

From Our London Correspondent,
LONDON.

The Lord Mayor has already re-
ceived £543,758 on behalf of the
National Thanksgiving Fund
which he launched six weeks ago
in appreciation of the generosity
'o Britain during war-time of the
people of the Commonwealth and
the United States.

Contributions are reaching the
Mansion House at the rate of
£5,000 a day. This does not take
account of the money collected by
local authorities or by Post Offices
since the end of March.

The reaching of the half millipn
mark has brought action from two
brothers, both overseas students in
London. Messrs. D. H. R. and
P. F. R. White asked that their
names should head the list of over-
seas students to be accommodated
in the new £2 million residential
centre that the sponsors of the
Fund hope to build.

The White Brothers come from
Capetown, South Africa. They
are both scholarship students on
au tive year course at the Royal
Academy of Arts. Asked to give
his opinion on the purpose of the
Fund, Mr. D. H. R. White, the
elder of the two, added:

_ “We think the National Thanks-
giving Fund is a magnificent ges-
ture on the part of the British pub-
lic. Nothing is more desperately
needed by overseas students like
my brother and myself than a
residential hall in London where
we can live within our means and
in surroundings fitted to our
studies. We live in most pleasant
lodgings in Wimbledon, but we do
not want to live in lodgings—we
want to live in a residential hall
in the midst of everything, and
part of the student life in London

“And we mean London It is
the capital of the Commonwealth,
and that is the centre of things
for us, and where we want to be.”

That was his answer to the eri-
tics Who object to a memorial -con-
centrated in London.

£200,000
WANTED

(From Our London Correspondent)

fe LONDON.

[Two hundred thousand pounds
will have to be raised to obtain
a sports ground and club house
for all colonial students in London

This figure was mentioned to
me by Sir Sidney Abrahams.
ce eairman of the five-man planning
committee set up to deal with this
particular issue of student welfare.

Sir Sidney, a former British
Olympic representative who took
part in the 1906 and 1912 Games,
18S noW a member of the Legal
Department of the Colonial ce.

His committée were mentioned
in a Parliamentary question last
week when Mr. Dodds-Parker
asked Mr, James Griffiths what
progress had been made in the
acquisition of the sports ground.

Question of Funds

Mr. Griffiths’ reply was that the
committee had prepared a scheme
for a sports club for all colonials,
in¢luding their friends, and that
they were now considering the
question of raising funds.

Sir Sidney told me: “We want
to obtain a large sports ground
with a-running track, cricket and
Soccer and rugger pitches” he said.

“The Club house we want to be
something more than just a
pavilion. We may try and get one
or two bedrooms for people who,
under special circumstances, want
to spend the night and we want
it to have all the latest amenities”.

Sir Sidney and his committee
are expecting to meet again shortly
when they will decide on ways
and means by which they can
raise the necessary £200,000.

Any Extreme”

To Avoid Signing Treaty

WASHINGTON, May 11.

Mr. James Webb United States
Assistant Secretary of State said
today that Russia was apparently
prepared “to go to any extreme”
to avoid signing the Austrian
Peace Treaty.

Questioned at a press conference
about a report in the Soviet paper
Pravda that the treaty was de-
pendent on the Internationalisa-
tion of Trieste he said no one
could be deceived by such tac-
tics.

Mr. Webb said the restoration
of Austrian independence was
“an aim which the United States

has certainly pressed for since
1946.
“In contrast it appears that

Austrian freedom and independ-
ence are the last things that the
Soviet Union desires despite its
participation in the Moscow
Declaration, and that it will go
to any extreme to think up
excuses to avoid this result.”
Now the excuse has’ been
stretched further afield to Trieste,
No one can be deceived by such
tactics or the purpose they hide
to delay fulfilment of a solemn
international commitment towards
the people of Austria. —Reuter

*‘Propaganda”’

LONDON, May 11.

A British foreign office spokes-
man today described as “propa-
ganda move” the forecast by East
German officials that Russia would
shortly announce a sharp cut in
the reparations to be paid by
Germany

He said it was clearly designed
to offset the “disastrous impres-
sion’ made by’ the Soviet
announcement that Russia had no
more prisoners of war to repatri-
ate.

The spokesman
effect of any reduction ‘in
reparations requirements would
be ficticious so long as more than
25 per cent of the eastern zone’s
heavy industry was owned by
Soviet trusts and so long as Ger-
man exports to Russia were sold

at 1936 prices and _ imports
charged for at current prices”.

LET OTHERS SHOUT



NEW YORK.

MAN is losing his battle with
the machine, In New York a de-
monstration has just been given of
a loudspeaker device, linked with
an electronic ray, for use in the
grocer’s. As you pass the bread
counter, it will mutter in your ear,
“Don’t forget to take a new loaf.”

Pass by the canned beer, and
it will say: “Aren't you thirsty to-
day? Try a can of nice, ice-cold
beer. It's so-o-o0 refreshing!"*

In Syrachse, New York, they
have installed a talking traffic
light. When the signal goes red
this monster will thunder at pe-
destrians: “No! No! You can’t cross
now!”

Change of Tone

When the green switches on it
will say, with a change of tone:
“All right. Walk!”

In the petrol stations they now
have a lighted moving tape on top
of the pumps. . As the driver is
getting petro) he sees the message:
‘sDoesn’t your oil need changing?
Old oil can ruin new engines.” Or,
“About time you get a new set of
sparkplugs. When did you change
them last?”

‘Back-firing’
Some of man’s new weapuns

against weeds and animal pest are |that America is going to have

“back-firing” badly.

From the Middle West comes
word that spraying with DDT has
killed millions of birds, and other
pests are multiplying. Fish life is
being decimated by spraying of
weeds along river banks,

Women are being warned to be
careful, now that spring cleaning
time is here, against some of the
spot-remover flulds.

Four people have been killed in

WHO are the worst tax dodgers

By

While recognising the difficul-

that the present French initiative
was nothing less thai the start of

there would be only a pooling of

Steel Band Governor

“It’s not what you do, but the way that
you do it.”

These words from a popular song sum
up the affaire Baldwin as neatly perhaps
as the modern world can sum anything up.

Earl Baldwin came to the West Indies
straight from the arena of British party pol-
itics.

He is a Socialist of the “old-school-tie-
school”, who wears his school-tie with a
difference.

He can behave as a Governor with an
unorthodoxy which no other Governor of
the conventional Civil Service school could
dare to emulate and retain his post for
long.

Earl Baldwin is a nobleman and to him
the poor of Antigua deserve more sympathy
than is required for understanding the
social differentiations of a small island com-
munity.

He is a man of culture, a soldier, an
author, a traveller and by birth an associ-
ate with most of the great ones ‘of his gen-
eration.

But his appointment to the governorship
of the Leeward Islands at a time when
nobility of birth or Socialism was ineffec-
tual to rewind the clock of civil adminis-
tration there, was unfortunate.

The misfortune was pointed out at the

time by most of the informed. In spite of
the triumphant reception by steel bands
and by thousands who welcome him when
he returned from his Pyrrhie victory in
London the misfortune has proved to be
true. The Antigua which Lord Baldwin
leaves, is considered to be an Antigua
where much more might have been achiev-
ed if only the Governor had been a trained
administrator. Lord Baldwin will be re-
membered as the Governor who out of his
pocket paid for politicians to have free
courses at Ruskin College. He will be re-
membered as the Governor who saved
Dead Man’s Chest from going into the
hands of an American proprietor. He will
be remembered as the Governor who gave
a banner to the steel bands and he will be-
come known in West Indian history as the
Patron of steel bands, poets, painters and
musicians. His Government House will be
remembered as the Government House
where shorts and beer were not consider-
ed beneath the dignity of the King’s repre-
sentatives in the tropics.
- In Barbados he will be remembered as
the Governor who walked from Govern-
ment House and did his own shopping.
He will no doubt leave behind in the Lee-
wards a circle of friends who have profited
from their acquaintance with perhaps ‘one
of the most colourful figures of the other-
wise largely prosaic England of to-day.

The Leewards were unfortunate in the
timing of Lord Baldwin’s arrival but the
fact of his presence in the British Carib-
bean has been productive of one certain
result. Lord Baldwin has destroyed the
pare of the Englishman in his stiff col-
ar. If he had had the talents of an admin-
istrator in one half the measure that he
has the talents of an artist, the Leewards
might have reached a stage of develop-
ment which would have made the closer
association of the West Indies more attain-
able than it seems at present.

But Lord Baldwin could not do things in
the conventional way and his resignation
before completing a normal term of 5
years is not surprising. His successor who
is a Civil Servant born and bred will have
a colossal task before him. What happens
in the Leewards is of vital concern to all
the islands where the proposal of federa-
tion is due for discussion by legislatures
now. If Lord Baldwin had achieved nothing
else than a reminder that there are other
islands in the West Indies besides our own,
he would have achieved much. But the West
Indies owe him gratitude for something
else. Lord Baldwin was never afraid to
speak his mind and if West Indians came
in for criticism the Colonial Office got their
fair ration.



Victory

THE VICTORY of the West Indies
cricket team yesterday over the strong
Yorkshire eleven will do much to hearten
not only the players themselves, but
every follower of the game in these parts.
Under trying conditions the West Indies
put up a grand fight, characterised through
all its stages by the traditional dogged-
ness of the northern county on the one
hand, and the determination of their op-
ponents to do well right from the start
of their tour, on the other. This evens
the score in victories between Yorkshire
and the West Indies, each now having
won twice, and when they meet later
in this tour, there will be, no doibt
another dour struggle for supremacy.

‘ The weather up to now has not been
very kind toâ„¢the cricketers from these
Sunny isles, and the first game of the
tour proper, against Worcester, was wash-
ed out after only seven hours play in
three days. With ardour not dampened
by this start the West Indies players
threw themselves irito this game against
the joint county champions, and secur-
ing an early advantage, never relaxed in
their march to a hard won victory. This
win will be a tonic in the English weather.

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE



W.sT. Industrialization

The case for rapid industrial-
ization in the British West Indies
rests chiefly on over population in

relation to existing agricultural re-
sources. IndQstrialization is not
an alternative to agricultural im-
provement. Agriculture cannot be
put onto a basis where it will yield
a reasonable standard of living
unless new jobs are created off
the land. Tax holiday legislation
alone will not attract industries to
the West Indies. It is not true
that an industry cannot be estab-
lished successfully .if the raw
materials are not produced locally;
nor is it true that if the raw
materials are produced locally, it
is ipso facto economic to process
them on the spot. British West
Indian industrial development
should be aimed at the export
market rather than at the domestic
market, especially markets in
Latin America, the United King-



dom and the United States. West
Indian political opinion should
welcome outside capital in indus-
trial development, which is much
less “dangerous” than similar in-
vestment in agriculture or mining,
though local legislation is needed
to protect the interests of the
workers employed in these enter-
prises. Established manufacturers
in the Metropolitan countries,
should, wherever possible, be per-
suaded to set up branches in the
West Indies. A _ British West
Indian Industrial Development
Corporation is necessary to supply
the drive, initiative and planning
needed to build up the momentum
for a successful industrialization
programme. This _ corporation
should have offices in London and
New York to make and follow up
contacts with potential clients and
to attract established manufac-
turers to the West Indies. A major
function of such a corporation
would be to furnish guidance and
accurate information to likely
prospects on matters of law, taxa-
tion, currency regulations, import
controls, labour, availability of
power, supplies, raw materials,
factory sites, transportation, an-
cillary services and similar mat-
ters. Also, it would perform the
services of a liaison agent be-
tween prospective manufacturers
and government departments, the
business community, and organised
labour. It should be prepared to
build factories or install machinery
in them, or both, for lease to
responsible and qualified opera-
tors, and even operate new fac-
tories until private operators for
them can be found. A _ British
West Indian Industrial Develop-
ment Bank would be helpful in
furthering an _ industrialization
programme.

These are the views expressed
by Professor W. Arthur Lewis,
originally of St. Lucia, and now
Stanley Jevons, Professor of Polit-
ical Economy at the University of
Manchester, England, in an article

published in the current issue of
the Caribbean Economic Review,
publication of which was announc-
ed today by Mr. Lawrence W.
Cramer, Secretary General of the
Caribbean Commission. The ar-
ticle was prepared by Professor
Lewis in response to a request by
the Caribbean Commission for a
study of criteria for determining
the suitability of various manu-
facturing industries for Caribbean
territories. In preparation of this
study Professor Lewis last summer
visited Puerto Rico, Jamaica,
British Guiana and Trinidad, An--
other aspect of this problem was
treated by Professor Lewis in an
analysis of the industrialization
programme of Puerto Rico, which
was published at the end of last
year in the preceding issue of the
Caribbean Econom'e Review.
Based on the correlation of u
number of different criteria, Pro-
fessor Lewis concludes that the
following industries are those best
adapted tor the British West Indies
in their present economic situa-
tion: hosiery, leather, the garment
industry, footwear, china, the
paper trades, glass, building ma-
terials, canning, the textile indus-
tries, plastics, rubber goods, olec-

tric switches, toys, and eleciric
lights. Expansion and develop-
ment in the metal trades,
that is finishing in-

dustries based on imported ingots
désigned to produce such products
as agricultural implements, cut-
lery, pins, nails, screws, and the
general run of foundry products
and ironmongery, he considers
favourable and of special impor-
tance. Assembling industries,
such as the assembling and finish-
ing of imported parts into radio
sets, bicycles, and similar articles,
are stressed as having favourable
possibilities. Two of the indus-
tries which figure prominently in
contemporary West Indian discus-
sions of industrial development
are considered by Professor Lewis
as among the less favourable pos-
sibilities—grain milling and sugar
refining. As a basis for his con-
clusion that British West Indian
industrial development should be
aimed at the export market rather
than at the domestic market alone,
Professor Lewis cites the fact that,
in the older industrial countries
like Great Britain and the United
States, the tendency is to empha-
sise the heavy, mass production
industries. He points out that
European countries and Puerto
Rico have found it possible to
secure a market in the United
States for the products of their
lighter industry. “What Puerto
Rico and the countries of Europe
can do,” says Professor Lewis, ‘‘the
British West Indies can do also if
they put their backs into the job.”
He does not disregard the value
of the local market in the British
West Indies, but considers that it
cannot be fully and satisfactorily

exploited until, among other re-
quirements, a British West Indian
customs union has been establish-
ed,

In Professor Lewis’ opinion,
“successful industrialization de-
mands self-confidence, drive, ini-
tiative and soundly conceived
policies.” He finds that these are
not always present. in those who
have formal responsibility for the
development of industrialization
Seer ih the territories.

is drive, he believes, might be
supplied by-the establishment of
a British West Indian Industrial
Development Corporation similar
to those of Peurto Rico, South
Africa and several Latin American
Republics, and to the . former
special area Commissioners in the
United Kingdom. In this connec-
tion, he states that federation of
the British West Indies is neces-
sary to supply adequate base for a
British West Indian Industriai
Development Corporation.

Professor Lewis concludes his
analysis as follows: “The British
islands do not have far to look if
they want to study the technique
of industrialization. For, on their
very doorstep lies Puerto Rico,
whose Industrial Development
Company is a most intelligent
model of what is required.....
Some key, is needed to open the
door behind which .the dynamic
energies of the West Indian people
are at present confined. The key
has obviously been found in Puerto
Rico, where the drive and enthu-
siasm of people hitherio as lethar-
gic as the British West Indians,
warms the heart and inspires con-
fidence in the future. The British
West Indies can solve their prob-
lems if they set to them with a
will. But first they must find the
secret that will put hope, initiative,
direction, and an unconquerable
will into the management of their,
affairs. And this is the hardest
task of all.”

Mr. Cramer declared that the
views expressed in the article
were those of Dr. Lewis. They
do not necessarily represent the
views of the Caribbean Commis-
sion, or of. its Central Secretariat.
They are, however, the views of
a profound student of West Indian
economy, who has put forward
concrete and reasoned proposals
which, in Mr. Cramer’s opinion,
deserved careful consideration by
all officials, planners, legislatures,
Chambers of Commerce and inter-
ested citizens in the West Indies.
“It is my hope,” he declared,
“that Professor Lewis’ proposals
may serve as a basis for discussion
leading to the development of an
acceptable plan or plans for in-
dustrialization in the British Ca-
ribbean, and, in fact, in all Carib-
bean territories, which will chan-
nel and tap the initiative, the
energy and the resourcefulness of
their people.”

Shopping And Parking

RESOLUTIONS concerning the
General Hospital and the Shops
Closing Act occupied the House
of Assembly at last. Tuesday’s
meeting, both brought forward by
Dr, H. G., Cummins. In the case
of the latter Resolution, it was
perhaps as well for those in favour
of the exempting from closing df
shops selling fresh fruit, vegeta-

bles and B.W.I1, handicrafts
that Mr. Adams returned to his
seat when he did, for Dr.

Cummins, who appeared extreme-
ly hesitant and vaguely lost in a
maze of notes and papers, was
experiencing considerable difficul-
ty in establishing his major point
—that the Resolution was intend-
ed purely to avoid wastage of
perishable goods. Mr. Adams,
however, who. had been absent
from his chair for over half an
hour, saved the situation with
some blunt speaking. Postpone-
ment of the Resolution would, hd
stressed, merely cause months of
delay and subsequent loss to the
‘Colony. He maintained that de-
fects in the Shops Closing Act
would take a great deal of tima
to adjust, and there was absolutely
no point in delaying the Resolu-
tion pending these adjustments.
Earlier in the discussion, Mr, J. H.
Wilkinson had suggested that a
squad of detectives might be re-
quired to make sure that shops
selling fruits and vegetables did
not make sales of other commodi-
ties as well during the “exempt
hours,” and for this Mr. Adams
had a remedy. “It should not be
so expensive,” said the Leader of
the House, “to erect a physical
barrier between what may be sold
and what may not be sold.” Judg-
ing by the groans from the oppo-
site side of the table, this sugges-
tion did not find great favour
with the Opposition. One had
momentary visions of barbed wire
and policemen separating counters
of fresh tomatoes from their
brothers in tins. Mr. Adams men-
tioned the name of a certain well
known local drug store in which
he had seen a police officer pur-
chase a camera on a Sunday
morning, and his following up of
this incident with the statement
that while goods other than drugs
were on display they were not

profound sympathy for the rural
shopkeeper—even admitting that
he did not know how they man-
aged to keep alive! His jocular
suggestion that their only hope
was to keep the police out of the
district caused no little amuse-
ment. From what I have seen of
rural shops, most of them re-
semble, naturally on a smaller
scale, the general country store of
the United States, selling anythiny
and everything they can. Few
surely would hesitate to make
other sales along with a pound of
green beans if the chance present-
ed itself.

Mr. Garner, in a fiercely aggres-
sive ten minutes, stressed the
plight of the rural shopkeeper,
and the rural residents. Shouted
he, “Many shopkeepers work hard
to feed the poor of the country—
some of you people don’t know
what it’s all about! He emphasised
the problems of dealing with the

the familiar axiom that credit,

in the loss of the customer, the
cash—and everything. Angered by
the laughter of some listening
members, Mr. Garner’s wrath
knew no bounds and the possi-
bility of the Resolution being
postponed appeared strong at this
stage, the more so when Messrs
Dowding and Ward expressed
themselves in agreement with
Mr. Garner’s views. As has been
apparent on numerous occasions
at past meetings, the “poor man”
has no more arden! supporter than
the senior member for St. Philip,
who never hesitates to flay all and
sundry if he considers the oc-
easion demands it. There may be
some who consider Mr. Garner's
oratory carries too much vehem-
ence, his opinions too much bitter-
ness, but there can be few who
would question his sincerity.
Having completed his speech, Mr.
Garner became deeply engrossed
in a volume which he had brought
with him, called, as far as I could
see, “Africa — Britain’s Third
Empire.”



, The Parking Danger

Also passed last Tuesday was a
Resolution to approve the Parking
and Restricted Places amendment
Regulations of 1950, but not before
Mr, Fred Goddard had brought up
a matter which deserved far more
attention than it actually received
—the mad folly of cars parking on
corners and bends—often two or
three vehicles on either side of
the road. Mr. Goddard expressed
the opinion that this was more im-
portant than the Resolution before
the House, and one fails to see
how anyone who does any driv-
ing in this island can do else but
agree with him. One of the most
glaring examples, which can be
seen almost daily and hourly, was
mentioned—the situation outside
one of the Colony’s leading hotels,
in the Hastings area. Almost
opposite this hotel is a wide and
long parking space, an ideal situa-
tion, ableto take three cars abreast
comfortably. This space is con-
stantly ignored by drivers, who
line their cars immediately outside
the hotel on both sides of the road,
and a narrow road at that, The
chaos here at busy times, with
buses and bicycles adding to the
confusion, makes one marvel, as
Mr. Goddard stated, that the num-
ber of accidents is not much
greater. Mr. Goddard recommends
a law prohibiting the parking, and
even the stopping, of cars on bends
and corners. It is to be hoped that
the powers that be heed this wise
suggestion in rapid time.

The Resolution creating new
posts and higher salaries at the
General Hospital was duly passed,
but not without criticism. As ex-
plained by Dr. Cummins, the end
of June would see the hospital
minus a Resident Surgeon, and
the end of the present day (Tues-
day), minus a Medical Superin-
tendent—certainly an alarming
state of affairs. In recent weeks,
four doctors have left the hospital,
and, according to Mr. Mottley,
local medical men who have been
working in the hospital are also
anxious to “say goodbye.” The
affairs and conditions at the hos-
pital have been headline news
for some time nuw, and it is not
desirable that such should be the
case,

The Public Want To Know

To the Editor, The Advocate—

Str,—The public are grateful to
the Honourable J. D. Chandler for
giving them the facts in connec-
tion with the shutting down or the
proposed shutting down of the Gas
Well at Turner Hall and his will-
ingness to allow the _ British
Union Oil Company and _ their
readiness to continue supplying
the public with Gas when the
Government permitted.

The public on the other hand
are shocked at the Government's
handling of the entire affair, as
after all they are servants of the
people. The situation might have
been serious had the Attorney of
Turner Hall and the British Union
Oil Company stood on their dig-
nity for a few days.

The General public who use gas
for cooking would have been ex-
pensed in obtaining substitutes for
the gas ranges and ovens, and

many of the Companies, such as
the Soap and Lard manufacturers
would have been forced to dismiss
their employees as a result of the
failure to obtain gas. It is not
known who is responsible first, for
the secrecy and secondly, for the
mess made but the general feeling
is that the public are entitled to
know everything in connection

with the matter.
TAXPAYER.

Darkness
To the Editor, The Advocate—

Sm,—It is natural for man to
indulge in the illusions of hope,
but we are apt to shut our eyes
against the painful truth.

Is it our lot to remain in the
land of darkness and the sea of
misery all our years? Is there any
possible assistance which will en-
able us the poor remnants of our
poverty-stricken ancestors to move

one step forward into light? Those
in power seem as though they are
given away to lethargy.

Unemployment has declared war
upon us and we are unable to
fight. The disastrous diseases of
squalor and want have bound us
hand and foot, and all that is left
to us is to bow in supplication and
submission before the throne.

We are given a hope once in
every two years (just a little be-
fore the party war bégins) when
various politicians come to prom-
ise us the “Promised Land”,

We lend them our aid, and after
they have climbed to the top of
the ladder, they in turn kick it
away and leave us in the land of
despair.

Shall we ever see our way?

| Sugar Cane Root Borer

THE purpose of this article is to atevet
firstly as a reminder, where necessary, that |
there exists in Barbados a sugar cane pest
known as the “root borer” (Diaprepes
abbreviatus) which can cause serious dam-

age to cane cultivation, and secondly as a
warning that unless preventive measures
are initiated this year to control it, the pest
may become so numerous and widespread
that considerable losses of cane and there-
fore also of both sugar and revenue will be

sustained,

There is no intention of raising an exag-
gerated or disproportionate alarm over the
situation, but it is as well that the facts be
faced.

The damage which this pest can cause is
well known to most of those who were en-
gaged in sugar cane planting during the
nineteen twenties and nineteen _ thirties.
Those who do not know of this pest should
read the records of the Department of Agri-
dulture on the subject and the report of the
Root Borer Commission of 1919. The damage
caused by root borer is often not appreci-
ated until it has assumed such large propor-

tions as 5 or 10 tons of cane lost per acre.

An average loss of only half a ton of cane

an acre would mean a loss of $200.000 to
the industry.

Neither sugar cane, nor any other plant,
can be successfully cultivated if its roots
are attacked and destroyed. There have been
numerous indications and several direct
proofs within recent years that the root
borer of sugar cane is at work in various
districts scattered throughout the Island
destroying the roots of sugar cane.

The present position therefore is that it
will be taking an undue risk to allow the
industry to be jeopardised again, as it un-
doubtedly has been in the past, by sudden
outbreaks or steady building up of this

serious root pest.

Preventive measures may not be popular,
but prevention of losses is essential under
present economic conditions. Damage which
might have shown up seriously this year
has largely been masked by excellent rain-
fall since last August, but the need for or-
ganising preventive action still remains.

There are two main methods of control-
ling the root borer pest — namely (i) by
hand collection of the beetles, and (ii) by
treatment of the soil with an _ insecticide.
Certain tillage operations also help to des-
troy the pest in the grub or “borer” stage,
but for other reasons it is unwise to practice

| these operations on some soil types.

Not enough is known yet in Barbados
about the treatment of the soil with Gam-
mexene as a means of controlling root borer,
but the Department of Agriquiture is taking
steps to acquire the necessary information

as quickly as possible.

Until another and better method of con-
trolling root borer is fully demonstrated in
Barbados, the old method of hand collecting
beetles must be resorted to as a temporary
control measure. Hand collection of beetles
should be organised this year on the same
‘scale as in the period between 1930 and
| 1940. Most sugar cane planters know what
to do and some are already taking individ-
ual action, but to be fully effective hand
collection must be undertaken co-operative-
ly between all cane growers on an, island-

borer. All planters making collections of
beetles, or finding root borer grubs in the
stumps of ratoon fields during ploughing, or
who have reason to suspect that root borer
grubs are attacking this year’s young plant
cane fields, should at once notify the Direc-
tor of Agriculture so that a reasonable estim-
ate of the present status of root borer can
be made.

The control of sugar cane root borer is a
matter of concern to the entire community
in Barbados, Almost everyone, and not only
the sugar cane growers, depend directly or|
indirectly upon the revenue derived from
the sugar industry— any factor which tends
to reduce total sugar production is a matter
of concern for all and has adverse reper-
cussions throughout the entire community.

It is hoped therefore that during the com-
ing months when root borer beetles may be
expected to emerge, everyone will co-oper-
ate in making possible the collection, des-
truction and notification of all root borer
beetles and grubs which can be found.

Tourists—Biggest Year
Since War
By Frederick Cook
NEW YORK.

This looks like being the best year since the war
ended for American tourists in Europe, including
Britain. Official estimates are that some 345,000
Americans will be crossing the Atlantic.

All tourist agencies and shipping companies, as
well as the airlines, report that the demand for
space is “terrific”.

Says Mr. Malcolm La Prade, of Thomas Cook's
offce in New York; “Our bookings are running 45
to 50 per cent ahead of last year already.

“But we are being limited in what we might do
by shortage of transport facilities and of hotel
accommodation abroad.”

VERY HEAVY

Mr. Joseph Brennan, of United States Lines, says:
“Our bookings are exceptionally heavy. We are
considerably ahead of a year ago.”

The Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth are full
to the end of July. In the tourist class, they are
booked until August.

The French Line, Holland-America Line, Ameri-
can Export, Norwegian American, Gdynia America,
Swedish American and the smaller companies all
give the same réport—‘Nothing’ at the moment.”

IF plans for the preservation of
flying fish in Barbados materialise,
Mrs. Housewife will be able to
purchase the “birds” long after
the season has passed. That such
plans are afoot was told to the
“Advocate” by the Fisheries Ofti-
cer yesterday. The plans are in
respect to the storage and can-
ning of fish and it is hoped that
they will materialise in time for
the next season.

The details of the plans have

Soon after she heard that he had
fallen and she ran down the hill
and saw that he was lying in a
deep trench on the left side of
the road. The bicycle was. also
off the hill.

he knew Best well. and on Sat-

was going down Callender Road
towards Thornbury Hill. Two
men passed him on bicycles and
he recognized one of them as
Best.

Before he reached the foot of
the hill he heard someone say that
a man had fallen over the guard
wall. He went and “looked over
the guard wall and saw a man

lying on the bank next to the
trench. A man called Jerome
Durant helped him to lift the

body. He later recognized the man
to be Whitford Best who lived at

STEEL BANDS
AT FUNERAL

(Barbados Advocate Correspondent)
ANTIGUA.
Steel Bands had a_ funeral
parade last Monday. Two mem-
bers of “Hell’s Gate” lost their
mothers so the band played
“Nearer my God to Thee” ‘“‘Abide
with Me” and “Lead kindly
Light”.

LAND TAX ORDINANCE

(Barbados Advocate Correspondent)

CASTRIES.
The Colonial Office has intimat-
ed that the power of the King’s
non-disallowance will not be ex-
ercised in regard to the Land Tax
Ordinance which was recently
passed by the local legislature.
The Ordinance will accordingly be

put into effect by proclamation.

Ignore Sidewalk

ONLY about 50 per cent of the
pedestrians who pass over -the
Victoria Bridge use the sidewalk
which was recently built to the
west of the Bridge. The majority
of that 50 per cent make up those
who come from the direction of
the ‘bus stand going towards the
city.

A few pedestrians interviewed
by the Advocate yesterday said
that it seemed natural when
going from Bridge Road towards
the bus stand or Probyn Street
to walk on the left side of the
road. ‘That side has no sidewalk.
There are still many who seem
| to forget there is a sidewalk and
‘take fo the road when going in
the opposite direction.

DELIBERATE
FRAUD

(Barbados Advocate Correspondent)

PORT-OF-SPAIN, May 11.

White and coloured « workers
and Government clerks this morn-
ing peeped in at the doors of the
Port-of-Spain First Assize Court
to glimpse at the pretty Chinese
prisoner Gertrude Ling Tom.

She is on a 22-count indictment
for falsification and embezzlement
The sums involve the property of
ner former employer Agostini
Brothers, Ltd., and the amount is
$53,920. Ling Tom pleaded not
guilty on all counts.

Mr. C. T. W. E. Worrell prose~
cuting for the Crown described the
allegation as the most deliberately
executed fraud. The indictment
took 15 minutes to read and the
ease is continuing. Mr, Louis
Wharton, K.C., is defending.

Royal Stam P| U.S. Has World’s

Most Powerful

Generator

| WASHINGTON, May 11.

President Truman today dedi-
pcated the world’s greatest power
generator — Grand Coulee Dam
j across the Columbia River.

After 16 years’ construction the
110% million cubic metres con-
crete structure will develop more
ejectricity than has ever been gen-
| erated anywhere else in the world.
| A strange reservoir created by
‘the Dam Lake Roosevelt is 150
miles long. The Grand Coulee
|} Where the last turbine has now
‘been installed weighs about 21,-
| 600,000 tons. It will have 18 elec-
trical generators of which 13 are
already in place. During the war
when installations were still_ in-
complete, power from the Mant
helped to build the first atom
bomb.

President Truman said at the
dedication that he was determined
to develop low-cost public power
on all the great American rivers
and fight against its use “for pri-
vate profit.”

No Applicants

LONDON.
For the first time on record
Ingleton is without a town crier

The Village bellman—70-year-
old Sidney Hobbs — retired coal-
miner, has resigned and there are
10 applicants for the ancient
office,

It carried no salary but the
bellman retains the fees, which

usually amount to 35 cents three
or four times a year.



Ingleton councillors expressed
regret that the office is vacant.
The century-old bell will be made
available to anyone who has news

Will Consider
Amendments
CANBERRA, May 11

Australian Premier Robert Men-
zies in a statement on the anti-
Communist Bill today declared
that the government would con-
sider any reasonable amendment”

which did not impair the meas-
sure’s real efficacy, He mentioned
imendments for proper safe-
guards on the power of search and
toy provision of appéal to the Su-
preme Court, The Bill in the Gov-
ernment’s opinien does not touch
the status of a Member of Parlia-
ment but it was prepared to put
that beyond all doubt by a pro-
vision similar to that in the Crimes
Act, which states that nothing in
the Act should derogate from the |
privilege of either House of Par- |
liament or its members,

first victory of the tour by
wickets in two days here.

feat of the season, but they put up a great fight in a thrill-

ing match.

foundation for WI. victory.



Finn Wants All
Countries InGames
Stadium Finished

COPENHAGEN, May li,
Erik V. Frenckell, a Finnish
member of the International
Olympic Committee which meets
here next Sunday, said to-day that
he would like to see all countries
represented at the 15th Olympiad

to be held at Helsinki in 1952.
“I can well understand that
small nations, which have suffered
during occupation and war find it
difficult to accept the presence of
all nations,” he said, “but they
must forget; otherwise we shall
never have peace in the world.
Youth must not be taught hatred.”
Frenckell said that the Commit -
tee is in touch with Russia, but he
could not say more, “No doubi
apan will be represented,” he
added, “but Germany is the prob-
lem. I hope this country is allow-
ed to come. The whole purpose of
the Olympic idea is that the entire
world should meet at a sports fes-

tival.”
Stadium Ready

The stadium in which the games
are,to be held is now finished and
will be opened in June on the oc-
easion of Helsinki’s 300th anni-
versary. It will hold 70,000. Sales
of tickets for the games will start
on September 1, 1951, and Frenc-
kell said to-day that he expected
they would be sold out within a
week. Half the tickets will be
reserved for Finland, where it is
expected up to 2,000,000 Finns will
want to see the games.

Asked whether he expected
archery to be included in the 1952
programme, Frenckell said he did
not. “There is not a chance in a
thousand,” he added, ‘there are at
feast 10 other sports which need a
place in the programme.

In giving a good display the

tourists showed themselves to be

a thoroughly competent side. The

belief that they might not be able §

to adapt themselves to the pecu-
liarities of difficult English pitches
was in this match at least proved
unfounded.

Admittedly some of their lead-
ing batsmen did‘not look happy
against the turning ball, but the
attack was distinctly formidable.

Prior Jones, West Indies fast
bowler, swung the ball away and
brought it back off the ground at
a good pace to capture seven
wickets for 29 runs. His perform-
ance indicated that when the
lively pitches arrive he will be a
threat to most batsmen.

Hutton alone mastered the West
Indies bowling and he scored
more than half of Yorkshire’s
total jn a stay of two and a quar-
ter hours, When the tourists bat-
ted a second time Yorkshire
bowled and fielded so well that
their opponents were definitely
uncomfortable. Rae, however, re-
mained imperturbable and more
sound batting by Walcott slowly
retrieved the position after early
reverses. Trestrail put West Indies
in sight of victory with a lively
innings, but even then Yorkshire
were not beaten. With five runs
still needed the sixth and seventh
wickets fell before Jones made
the winning hit.

The West Indies fast bowlers
found a little more life in the
eo here to-day and by lunch
ad claimed four Yorkshire second
{innings wickets for 81. York-
shire, 41 in arrears got off to a
bad start on the slightly soft pitch
in fine weather, With only eight
runs on the board Prior Jones
held an easy return catch to dis-
miss Lowson, and with the last
ball of the same over had Halli-
day leg-before without adding to
the score,

Lance Pierre occasionally over-
pitched but several of his out-
swingers and backbreaks caused
the batsmen concern. He gained
his reward when he bowled Les-
iter to make three wickets down
for nine. Hutton did not look com-
pletely at ease but he hooked
Jones for 6.

Three offside fours by Hutton
off Ramadhin showed the outfield
to be quite fast. Ramadhin and
Gomez made the ball turn, but
not with so much “bite” as on the
first day. Wilson helped to add
53 for the fourth wicket before
falling to a brilliant catch at the
wicket. Hutton completed a mas-
terly fifty in an hour and three
quarters,

Some
Jones,
mainly responsible for Yorkshire
being dismissed for 127 leaving
the West Indies to get 87 to win.

{Hutton played supremely con-
fident cricket for two hours and
a quarter while hitting a six and
four fours before he fell to a mis-
timed drive to deepish midon, to
end a determined rally by York-
shire. Yardley gave Jones an
easy return catch at 114 and six
runs later Smailes Coxon and
Wardle all fell at the same total,

Then came the West _ Indies
fight for the runs required for
victory, and there were many
tense moments before the tour-

ists won

Carlton Routs Boston

In Return Fixture

IN THEIR return football match with Everton at Ken-
sington yesterday, Carlton defeated their opponents by

The fine combination of -Carl-
ton’s forward line proved too
much for the Everton defence
which, though putting up a stub-
born resistance at the start, weak-
cned considerably in the second
ha'f of the game. Everton played
with ten men leaving the left
wing ‘unattended.

The Carlton forwards, Lucas,
R. Hutchinson, Cozier and Green-
idge were oitstanding, while
Warren, Clairmonte and A. Willi-
ams in the back line gave ~.ort



Spoon Shoot
Handicap

THE following are the results of
the Handicap Spoon Shoot which
took place at the Small Bore Rifle
Club on Wednesday, April 26. .

when Capt. C. R. E. Warner
emerged the winner with a handi-
cap score of 197.60. :

valuable support.

From the start, Carlton kicking
towards the Pavilion goal assailed
their. opponents’ goal area. The
defence held firm however, and it
was not until about mid-way of
this first half that Greenidge on
the right wing sent in a high try
that obviously tricked the goal-
keeper. The ball went clear over
his head and settled in the right
corner of the nets.

Everton went about in search
of the equaliser immediately after
the kick-off, but though they
succeeded at some times in pierc-
ing Carlton's defence their for-
wards were not quick enough to
take advhntnge of the opportuni-
ties offered. The tussle was keen
for the remainder of the period
but no further goals were scored.

four goals to nil.

Two Up
Carlton went two up soon aftet
the game resumed. It was the

result of a fine piece of work by
the forward line who swept down
the field, Lucas playing at inside-
left, finally getting possession of
the ball with goal keeper Reece

There la no doubt that the action of Greta Bancroft as Mrs. Danvers was the best action of the Play tut there was something—an indefinable something—about hediction which was not up to th same standard as her action. Norman Daysh as Brothcr-lnI-aw was just right. It was a pity there was so Uttla of him. He should appear more often and in leading roles. His wife Florence Daysh was terribly handicapped in the First Scene by the strange tricks of a microphone which pushed her voice up in all the wrong places Her vivacity and spirit, however. triumphed over these obstacles. Ralph Crowe as Maxim dc Winter had the burden of the Play on his shoulders and after a faltering start in the First Scene, he steadily settled down to an interpretation of de Winter, which was a magnificent achievement for an amateur 1 actor.

PACE FOITI THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE I'KIDAV. MAY 12. 1W BAKMDOSj4A0VtMTE *.. 1 -=TTf 7 I t ft lWi OB. •*.. M. MM SH.. I Frida>. May I?, IMM Steel Band Goi eriior "hi" my that "It's not what you do it." These WORM from ,i popular s< the West Indies straight from the arena of British partv politics. He is a Socialist of the "old-school-tieachool". who wears his scho.l-tie with a difference. He can behave as a Governor with an unorthodoxy which no other Governor of the conventional Civil Service school could dare to emulate and retain his post lor long. Earl Baldwin is a nobleman and to him the poor of Antigua deserve more sympathy than is required for understanding the social differentiations of a small island community. He is a man of culture, a soldier, an author, a traveller and by birth an associate with most of the great ones of his generation. But his appointment to the governorship of the Leeward Inlands at a time when nobility of birth or Socialism was ineffectual to rewind the clock of civil administration there, was unfortunate. The misfortune was pointed out at the time by most of the informed. In spite of the triumphant reception by steel bands and by thousands who welcome him when he returned from his Pyrrhic victory in London the misfortune has proved to be true. The Antigua which Lord Baldwin leaves, is considered to be an Antigua where much more might have been achieved if only the Governor had been a trained administrator. U>cd Baldwin will be remembered as the Governor who out of his pocket paid for politicians to have free courses at rfciskin College He will be remembered as the Governor who saved Dead Man's Chest from going into the hands of an American proprietor. He will be remembered as the Governor who gave a banner to the steel bands and he will become known in West Indian history as the Patron of steel bands, poets, painters and musicians. His Government House will he remembered as the Government House where shorts and beer were not considered beneath the dignity of the King's representatives in the tropics. In Barbados he will be remembered as the Governor who walked from Government House and did his own shopping. He will no doubt leave behind in the Leewards a circle of friends who have profited from their acquaintance with perhaps one of the most colourful figures of the otherwise largely prosaic England of to-day. The Leewards were unfortunate in the timing of Lord Baldwin's arrival but the fact of his presence in the British Caribbean has been productive of one certain result. Lord Baldwin has destroyed the K cturc of the Englishman In his itlfl colr. If he had had the talents of an administrator in one half the measure that he has the talents of an urtist, the Leewards might have reached a stage of development which would have mode the closer association of the West Indies more attainable than it seems at present. But Lord Baldwin could not do things in the conventional way and his resignation before completing a normal term of 5 years is not surprising. His successor who is a Civil Servaat born and bred will have a colossal task before him. What happens in the Leewards is of vital concern to all the islands where the proposal <>f federation is due for discussion by legislatures now. If Lord Baldwin had achieved nothing else than a reminder that there are other islands in the West Indies besides our own. he would have achieved much. But the West Indies owe him gratitude for something else Lord Baldwin was never afraid to %  peak his mind and if West Indians came in for criticism the Colonial Office got thenfair ration. VirloiMrTHE VICTORY of the West Indies cricket team yesterday over the strong Yorkshire eleven will do much to hearten not only the players themselves, but every follower of the game In these parts. Under trying conditions the West Indies put up a'grand fight, characterised through all its stages by the traditional doggedncss of the northern county on the one hand, and the determination of their opponents to do well right from the start of their tour, on the other. This evens the score in victories between Yorkshire and the West Indies, each now having won twice, and when they meet later in this tour, there will be. no dofibt another dour struggle for supremacy. The weather up to now has not been very kind to "the cricketers from these sunny isles, and the first game of the tour proper, against Worcester, was washed out after only seven hours play in three days. With ardour not dampened by this start the West Indies players threw themselves into this game against the joint county champions, and securing an early advantage, never relaxed in their march to a hard won victory.

Sugar Cane Root Borer TMt DUipoaa ol this article is to serve firstly as a reminder, where rieeessary. .hat there exists in Barbados a suiiur cane pesi known as the "root borei Uliaprrpeabbrrviatue.) which can cause serious dam-! ae t.i cans cultivation, and secondly as a wjrninthat unless preventive measures Hi 11 Itlatad this year to control it. the pest mav bafloma so numeious and widespread that considerable losses of cane and therefore also 01 Iw.th sugar and revepue will be sustained. There is n intention of raising an exangeratcd or disproportionate alarm over the situation, but it is as well that the facts be faced. The d.tiiuu'e which this pest can cause is well known to most of those who were engaged in sugar cane planting during the nineteen twenties and nineteen thirties. Those who do not know of this pest should read the records of the Department of Agri(tulture on the subject and the report of the Root Borer Commission of 1919. The damage caused by root borer is often not appreciated until it has assumed such large proportions as 5 or 10 tons of cane lost per acre. An average loss of only half a ton of cane an acre would mean a loss of $200,000 to the industry. Neither sugar cane, nor any other plant, can be successfully cultivated if its roots are attacked and destroyed. There have been numerous indications and several direct, proofs within recent years that the root' borer of sugar cane is at work in various districts scattered throughout the Island destroying the roots of sugar cane. The present position therefore is that it will be taking an undue risk to allow the industry to be jeopardised again, as it undoubtedly has been in the past, by sudden outbreaks or steady building up of this serious root pest. Preventive measures may not be popular, but prevention of losses is essential under present economic conditions. Damage which might have snown up seriously this year has largely been masked by excellent rainfall since last August, but the need for organising preventive action still remains. There arc two main methods of controlling the root borer pest — namely (i) by hand collection of the beetles, and (ii) by treatment of the soil with an insecticide. Certain tillage operations also help to destroy the pest in the grub or "borer" stage, but for other reasons it is unwise to practice thete operations on some soil types. Not enough is known yet in Barbados about the treatment of the soil with Gammexene as a means of controlling root borer, but the Department of Agrioulturc is taking steps to acquire the necessary information as quickly as possible. Until another and better method of controlling root borer is fully demonstrated Barbados, the old melhod of hand collecting beetles must be resorted to as a temporary control measure. Hand collection of beetles ;h<>uld be organised this year on the same cm re— "" %  "!'•••""• %  • 1 ma. %  >•• 11in"" in-.' "7 _" .,,,. smaller portant than the BesoluUon before scale as In the period between 19.J0 and 1940. Most sugar cane planters know what lo do and some are already taking individual action, but to be fully effective hand collection must be undertaken co-operatively between all cane growers on an islandwide basis. The Department of Agriculture is willing assist sugar cane growers in any way possible to secure effective control of root borer. All planters making collections of beetles, or finding root borer grubs in the stumps of ratoon fields during ploughing, or who have reason to suspect that root borer grubs are attacking this year's young plant cane fields, should at once notify the Director of Agriculture so that a reasonable estimate of the present status of root borer can be made. The control of sugar cane root borer is a matter of concern to the entire community in Barbados. Almost everyone, and not only the sugar cane growers, depend directly or indirectly upon the revenue derived from the sugar industry— any factor which tends to reduce total sugar production is a matter of concern for all and has adverse repercussions throughout the entire community. It is hoped therefore that during the com_ng months when root borer beetles may be expected to emerge, everyone will co-operate in making possible the collection, destruction and notification of all root borer beetles and grubs which can be found.
