TALKED WITH GRIFFITHS

Nationalisation

Plans Still On

(By MONTAGUE TYLER)
(Reuter’s Correspondent)

LONDON, May 17.

"THe Sugar delegation from the V’est Indies, who alone

have declined to accept

the British Government’s pro-

posals on a prelonged Empire Sugar Agreement, had pre-

Panama's efforts to at-
tract foreign capital for

development of the coun-

and other natural resources
resulted this

week: in the
of a decree-law
offering extensive conces-
sions to new _ businesses
created for these purposes.

Among the attractions
offered are tax exemptions
on machinery imported for
aomestic inaustry, tax ex-
emptions on imported basic
raw materials not available
locally, exemption of foreign
experts and _ teehnicians

protecting native labour, and

to-day with Colonial Secretary James
Griffiths, British Food Mini

ster Maurice Webb, and Mr.

There was a brief discussion and
a time-table fixed for a future
meeting.

It is understood that the full
discussions will begin early next
week. The presence of Mr. Dug-
dale at to-day’s talks was taken as
meaning that he will represent the
Colonial Secretary at next week’s
full discussions, since Mr. Griffiths
will be in Malaya with War Minis-
ter John Strachey, seeing for
themselves how the Communist

| banditry there is being combatted.

The British Sugar Refiners As-
sociation to-day sent a statement
to Ministers and party leaders de-
claring that there had been no
indication that official plans to
nationalise sugar refining had been
dropped or amended.

“There are indications that
sections of the (Labour) Party
are favouring the substitution
of the word ‘mutualisation’ for
‘nationalisation’, the statement
added. ‘No practical distine-
tion can be drawn between a
‘mutualised’ and a ‘national-
ised’ industry.”

The statement said that the
Labour Party gave as a reason for

Calypso Time



HE major concern of

Government and the Oppos-
ition now being How To Keep
Fit, it is welcome news that this
problem is to be taken more
seriously than hitherto,

For this reason the recent cry
from one of the benches, “Is
‘here a doctor in the House?”
may have been intended as more
than a mere jest. The House will
gradually assume the aspect of a

casualty clearing station, with
nursێs and orderlies moving
quietly about the lobbies, and
doctors reporting to anxious
Whips. Physical drill, gargling,
massage, and. skipping will be

Suet Explains

SKED how he had arrived @
the conclusion that increase
in the price of coal, gas, elee
tricity and other things weuk
have no effect on the cost ©

Charlie Suet said: “It is a matter
of statistics and the cost of living
index. The whole position must
be viewed not from the point oj
view of the individual at any
given moment but from the wider
standpoint of overall figures
When an individual pays more
for what he has to buy, he nat-
urally thinks the cost of living
has increased. But the speeches
of responsible Ministers and their
adjustment of relevant statistics
to larger bodies and longer peri-
ods should reassure him that in
spite of appearances to the
contrary, a rise in prices at this
moment is a sign of health:
recovery, and may even lower the
cost of living.”

Housewives Refuse High Prices

LONDON

British housewives, enraged
over the high prices of vegeta-
bles, have declared a “buyers
strike” until prices drop.

In recent years the Britisi
housewife has been inclined to
accept increased price of food-
stuffs with a shrug of her shoul-
ders and a moan to her next door
neighbour. But recent increased
vegetable charges Were the last
straw.

Prices at which the housewives
rebelled

were 14 cents for one
pound of cabbage; 14 cents
pound for onions; 24 cents for

carrots and 21 cents for a cauli-
flower. One year ago the price:
would have been about 5 cents a
pound for cabbage and _ onions,
10 cents for carrots and 9 cents
for a cauliflower.

Apprehensive that the boycott
might spread, vegetable retailers
and shopkeepers — who blame
shortage of vegetables for the
high prices — quickly arranged
conferences with housewife com-
mittees to talk over the problem

In some cases an agreement
was reached that there would be
no boycott if retailers promised
to drop prices as soon as sup-
plies became plentiful.

Other meetings, however, were
marked by spirited arguments
and declarations by housewives
that the boycott was on. Housv-
wives from other areas wired
their support for such decisions

B.U.O.C. placed at the dispos-
al of the Government, free of
chargé, the services of Dr. Senn |
to make a very thorough survey |
of the underground water, re- |
sources of the Island and his|
report has beén and (it is be-
lieved) will continue to be of
enormous value to this Colony. |

In_ particular, B.U.O.C, lo-
cated and drilled the first Belie
Well which proved the area
that to-day provides the
greater part of the Island's
water supply. This was done
without charge to Govern-
ment.

B.U.O.C. has long establish-
ed in Barbados and forms an
integral part of the Island's
economy. Both B.U.O.C. and
its associates T.L.L. are fully



tives stated that the offer of 45 per
per cent of the Island was satis-
factory to them but reserved cer-
tain points for further discussion
pending the arrival of another
representative of the Corporation
from New York, who was ex-
pected the following day.
Walk Out

The representatives of B.U.O.C./
Trinidad Leaseholds stated that
the offer was quite unacceptable
to them and after a brief refer-

cognisant of the economic|ence by their spokesman to their
standards and _ conditions in| competitors, they f abruptly
the West Indies and conform|and immediately walked out of

to the accepted standards of
conducting relations with la-

rs;

In the view of B.U.O.C., it
would be quite impracticable
to assess in terms of money
the value of the leases which
have been statutorily deter-
mined, the exploration work
which has already been done,
the value of recoverable cas-
ing in the wells, the stipply of
a substantial quantity of gas
to Barbados from Well No. 19
for domestic and industrial
purposés, and the potential
value ef Well No. 20 as a
similar sourcé of gas.

In view of B.U.O.C., the
most practical means of satis-
fying these claims is by the
grant of an exclusive prospect-
ing license over the whole
Island for a_ period of four
years so as to bring to a final
conclusion the work and en-
deavourcontributed by
B.U.O.C. to the exploration for
oil in Barbados.

Finally, if should be men-

weré required by the Allied
Governments unduly to over-
producé their oil Jeases_ in
Trinidad. T.L.L. also increas-
ed its refinery facilities to
meet this increased production
during the war years. The net
result is that to-day T.L.L.,
with increased refinery capa-
city, has inadequate supplies
of crude oil. By reason of the
dollar situation it was forced
to dispose of its assets in Ven-
ezuela, and for the same rea-
son is unable for purposes of
oil production to enter Canada
and the U.S.A, It has recently
drilled in the Bahamas and
British Guiana without suc-
cess. Apart from Trinidad,
Barbados thérefore offers the
only possible outlet in T.L.L. to
increase its crude output in the
British Empire. On the other
hand a competing U.S.A, Com-
pany is not fettered by dollar
restrictions and is free to drill

in the areas not open to
T.LL.”
Offered 55 Per

Cent |
The Governor - in - Executive
Committee, after giving most
careful consideration to the claim
of the B.U.O.C. and the argu-
ments adduced in support of it
decided that B.U.O.C. and their
associates, Trinidad Leaseholds,
should be offered 55 per cent of
the Island with the right to lease
half this area for 21 years re-
newable for a further 21 years,
if the lessee so wished. and fur-
ther that they should be given
first choice of the four sub-di-
visions into which it was pro-
posed to divide the Island for
prospecting purposes. In addi-
tion. they should be granted 50
per cent of certain of the terri-
torial waters with similar rights
as regards leasing. The balance
of the aréa, namely 45 per cent
of the Island and 50 per cent of
the territorial waters. with a
right to lease half this area should
be offered to the Gulf Oil Cor-
poration. The above decision
was communicated to the parties
by the Attorney General and Mr.

Faced with this walk-out by

the Government had to decide on

the next step and reached the con-

The Agreement
The main points of the agree-

ment are as follows:— ,

(1) A prospecting license for 4
years over approximately
half the area of the Island
(namely 85.3 square miles
out of a total area of 166.3
square miles), such area to
comprise the following par-
ishes—St. Lucy, St. Peter,
St. Andrew (excluding ex-
isting natural gas wells), St.
Joseph, . St. horas and
Christ Church.

A prospecting license over
the térritorial waters con-
tiguous to that part of the
Leeward coast which lies
between Harrison Point
Lighthouse and the point
where the boundary of St.
Peter’s parish meets the
coast.

The right to lease 50% of
the prospecting area in one
or more lots for 21 years
renewable for a further 21

years, and the option to ac- }

quire leases of the remain-
der at a competitive price.
The royalty to be 124% for
21 years and thereafter at
a rate not exceeding
16 2/3% if the Governor-
in-Executive Committee so
prescribe. In addition the
company will pay a rental
of $1 per year for every
acre under lease,

$20,000 Monthly

It is expected that the Gulf Oil
Corporation will arrange for a
geophysical crew to commence
work in the Island within the next
month or so and drilling opera-
tions will starf as soon as possible
after this preliminary work is
completed. It is estimated that
geophysical operations alone will
involve an expenditure of $20,000
per month and that by the time the
first hole is drilled to 10,000 feet
the total expenditure incurred by
the Corporation will be in the
region of $2,000,000. The Gulf Oil
Corporation is the third largest oil
company in the world, having a

They expressed dissent in re-
cent Press reports that the Brit-

against a credit, saying that the
decision would _depend on the
negotiations as a whole.

In their opinion the British
negotiators would hardly take a
rigid line oné way or the other

divorced from all the others.

Among British officials, those
concerned’ with the wider as-

the idea of a credit which is war-

It was thought that the amount

Russia Reduces |

.
Reparations
MOSCOW, May 16
Russia has halved East-Ger- |
man reparations and extended |

the time for their payment. This |
was announced in an exchange |
ef letters between Premier Stalin |
and East German Prime Minister
Otto Grotewohl.

The new figure will be $3,171, |
million and payment will be made |
in the next 15 years. }

Stalin said that his Government |
had consulted Poland and had
taken into account the prompt:
way in which East Germany has
so far fulfilled her reparations
obligations to Russia. |

The cut sprang from “the de-
sire to ease the efforts of the |
German people to reduce their |
economy, the letter said.

A Washington State Depart-

ment official described Marshal
Stalin’s agreement to reduce
Germany’s reparations payments

by half as a “sort of empty ges-
ture.”

It was “just being done for
political propaganda effects,” the
official said last night. —Reuter.

There are a few more notes on Housing
mainly pre-occupied with Housing Author-
ities and comments on the relative failure

date. One suggestion is worthy of special
attention because it contains, however
diffidently, the germ of hope for houses.

“In most territories,” it is noted, “there
are widely distributed private funds avail-
able for house construction and a tradi-
tion of self help. It is desirable that hous-
ing programmes should to the greatest pos-
sible extent mobilise and canalise these
funds”. :

Some day, but-

The day when we can again
stand on our own feet as a nation,
free from foreign debt, and able
to. look the whole world in the
face, would indeed be an 6 cat...

which they do not want.

To the extent that the Festival
is successful in attracting foreign-

The Board of Trade is already
at its wit’s end to cope with the

Indeed the mcre | think about

convinced I am that the reasons
given for it are not the real reas-
ons, The real reason, I suspect,
is Mr. Morrison’s well-known and
entirely laudable desire to clean
up the South Bank of the Thames.

No capital city, situated on a
noble river makes as little use of
the river as we do of the Thames,
which John Burns once described
as “liquid history.”

is how much will the community gain by
, the improvement of housing.

“Expenditure on housing” to quote a
- textbook on Social Administration, “has
been productive of good. It removes many
thousands of our fellow citizens from en-
vironments which are productive of evil
‘to environments which elevate. It is en-
abling the nation to rear better prospec-
tive citizens with less probability of their
being a charge upon the local and national
“exchequers.” ‘

And expenditure on housing diminishes
expenditure on preventive medicine, public
assistance, mental deficiency and all the
other evils which result from bad housing
conditions.

{ Housing cannot be written off as a very
expensive luxury which Barbados cannot
afford. Bad housing is at the root of all
our troubles and at the root springs health
or disease.

Comparisons with costs in Great Britain
are dangerous but it is worth noting that
the annual commitments of the Exche-
quer under all housing schemes in Great
Britain and Wales from the end of the
°Great War 1914—18 to the end of March
1938 are approximately £15,400,000 while
the corresponding commitments of local
authorities are about £ 3,500,000. This vast
expenditure on houses represents an in-
crease of three and one half million houses
in England and Wales during that period.
It is worth noting in passing that of this
number over one million were built by
local authorities and two and a half million

by private enterprise.
‘

Although this expenditure is impossible
in the British West Indies (unless Great
Britain at this late hour, takes a leaf from
the United States’ book and refunds to the

WHAT happens to the defeated
candidate for Parliament? How
does he view his failure, and how
do his ambitions stand for the
future?

The Temple, London, where
barristers carry on their practices,
gives an unexpected answer to
these questions. Its few acres
hold more also-rans of the last
election — Tories, Socialists and
Liberals—than any other area a
thousand times its size.

And from its crooked lanes, its
squares and gardens rises with
fervency a hosanna of thanks-
giving for the blessing of defeat,
and the sound of scores of breasts
being beaten as their owners
promise themselves never, never
again to try to win their case be-
fore the electorate.

When a defeated barrister can-
didate meets an MP colleague, his
greeting is more than usually
cheerful. The MP knows this
means that the other is thinking.
“There but for the marvellous
good sense of my constituency go
I’, and the member grinds his
teeth with rage.

BOTH the rage of the vietors
and the pleasure of the vanquished
flow from the same realisation:
that for barristers promoted to
Westminster the hustings have
changed into a scaffold, littered
with the dead and dying corpses
of once prosperous practices.

Political perferment_ has meant
professional disaster. A man
simply cannot combine member-
ship of the 1950 Parliament with
an active practice in the courts.

There were a few barristers of
foresight who realised that this
situation might arise, and never,
in consequence, stood at the elec-
tion.

One of them is Mr, Christopher
Shaweross, K.C., brother of Sir
Hartley, and Socialist member in
the last Parliament for Widnes.
He announced in advance that his
professional commitments _ pre-
vented him from seeking re-elec-
tion,

For the majority the tempta-
tion of politics was too much.
They advanced nobly to the fray,

Says Charles Ray

WHEN the sick and the senile
must come in ambulances to vote
it is not an excuse liable to com-
mend itself to the Party that one
of its healthy supporters must ap-
pear in a libel action, say, at Car-
lisle Assizes.

On the other hand, when a
solicitor has engaged counsel to
appear in a libel action at Car-
lisle Assizes, it is not an excuse
liable to commend itself to the sol-
icitor that his counsel must clock
in at Westminster. With the use
of fast transport, cunning, and
about three hours sleep a night a
barrister-MP may for a time paste
over the space between these two
stools, but, sooner rather than
later, must fall between.

This position holds much greater
interest and importance than
merely providing an opportunity
for the unsympathetic many to
laugh at the dilemma of a highly
embarragsed few. It may in-
dicate the unharnessing of a pair
of horses, law and politics, that
have traditionally run as a team in
British fife, with marked conse-
quences on the atmosphere and
policies of the British system of
government,

In feudal times the lAwyer stood
with the cleric at the right hand
of illiterate kings and barons who
wielded power. When parlia-
mentary government came the
lawyer transferred himself and
his influence to Parliament.

But it was with the rise of
popular democracy in the 19th
century that the lawyers, in great
numbers, came to the fore in
politics. The law was the royal
route through which a man could
come by the glittering prizes on
his talents alone: by the force of
his oratory, the clarity of his
brain, resource, appearance and
an unlimited appetite for work.

It is necessary only to cite a
few names of the living and from
the recently dead to appreciate
the strength of this connection:
Sir Stafford Cripps; Lord Simon,
Viscount Jowitt; Birkenhead;
Asquith; Haldane; Carson; Hail-

As late as the time of the
National Government, in 1931,
nearly 40 members of the Bar
were members of the Government,
inside the Cafinet and out of it.
The present Government, includ-
ing the English and Scottish law
officers, has found place for only
10 members of the Bar; two of
them, Sir Stafford Cripps and
Viscount Jowitt, are in the
Cabinet.

This illustrates a recent ten-
dency which has operated inde-
pendently of the development of
Parliament into a - jegislation
factory in which everyone works
overtime.

The Socialists in power have
had to break outside the lawyers
ring in the distribution of political
favours. The Trade Union official
comes first, and, after him, a new
phenomenon in the English politi-
cal scene — the University in-
tellectual.

The rewards for the lawyer who
reaches the top of the tree in
politics are still quite attractive
enough to enslave the endeavour
of the most ambitious’ and most
self- confident ofsyoung barristers.

The office of Lord Chancellor
and Attorney-General both carry
with them £10,000 a year; the
Solicitor General draws £7,000 a
year. But for the men—and they
are the majority — who would
rather have their cake as barris-
ters than bread and butter as
back-benchers, the impossibility of
eating at both tables makes their
choice easy. They will eat cake
and renounce all claim *o be Prime
Minister,

THIS will be all to"the good,
especially for the Tory Party,
which has done less than the
Socialists to escape from the
lawyer’s embrace.

A party must give evidence by
the personalities of those who
wield the decisive influence in its
counsels that it stands, as it claims,
for the broad national interest.

And it cannot but fail to give
a true reflection of that interest
when it is dominated by men of

Dutra will be picked. Only Brigadier Eduardo
Gomez—who veteran observers recalled as not
friendly towards the United States some ten years
ago but who cooperated, as head of the Brazilian
air force when the Rio de Jangiro government
declared war on the axis—has so-far been pro-
claimed candidate, But Getulio Vargas, whose
now-it’s-on-now-it’s-off policy of friendship to the
United States marked his 15 years in power, may
also run,

Brazil is an important source of war materials,
specially manganese, rubber, iron and vegetabie
‘oils, and Vargas’ recent bickerings with Brazilian
communists has
observers,

worried many United States

Next on the list is Uruguay where the strong
nationalistic and anti-United States Herrerista
party, according to reports from Montevideo, has
a 50—50 chance of winning the coming November
26 elections. Uruguay is an important source of
foodstuffs.

Bolivia—one of the world’$ most important
sources of tin and other minerals—will face ithe
crucial test in May, 1951, when the MNR party
which was accused of being friendly towards the
Hitler regime, will make another bid for power.

Argentine elections are scheduled for early 1952
and Chile’s during the following September. The
first, where President Peron and his nationalistic
policies were expected to be re-elected for another
six years, furnishes large quantities of food-
stuffs to fighting armies, Chile, important source
of nitrates for gunpowder manufacture, has an
important, although outlawed, communist party
which might influence the outcome of the elections,
threatening the current close collaboration of
President Gonzalez Videla with the United States.

Apart from the danger of paralyzing the flow
of strategic raw materials to the United States, the
election of governments unfriendly to Washington
in any of those countries—diplomatic observers
claimed—would break the political unity of the
continent,

The Americas have been working, with rare ex-
ceptions, as one bloc in most international meet-
ings, specially in the United Nations. This unity—
totalling 21 votes—has enabled the United States to
achieve several victories over other blocs, spe-
cially against the pro-Soviet group.

The problem facing the British West
Indies is how to get down the inflated cost

of house building.

Two pointers come trom the United
Kingdom.

Bournville as an example of social ex-
periment and Port Sunlight as an expres-
sion of welfare work were experiments
carried out by employers of labour in pro~
viding houses for the working classes.

i The other pointer is the Housing Act of
1936 which gives powers, facilities and
assistance to bodies of persons and private
individuals who are interested in providing
or desirous of providing houses for the
working classes.

This act is in marked contrast to Barba-
dos where in recent years an importer of
stone cutting machinery was heavily taxed.

The problem of houses in Barbados is the
problem of cutting the cost to suit the
problem, and of bringing down the cost of
all houses in the community. It cannot be
tackled by resignation or ‘depression.

The Editor The Advocate,

SIR,—Some weeks ago you pub-
lished a letter (from a Mr. Jack-
son if I remember aright) com-
plaining that a large portion of
Radio Distribution’s “Request
Time” was taken taken up with a
crowd of advertisements, and ap-
pealing for the preservation of that
programme. The letter ought to
have been followed up by other
subscribers, for it seems that no
notice has been taken of it by the
Management. At any rate there
has been no improvement—rather
the opposite.

The situation is really very
annoying. In my home we have
almost given up listening at that
time, which is a distinct loss, a
deprivation, since we used to en-
joy some of the records often
asked for, such as “Sending Red
Roses, You, you, you, Grandfather's
Clock, Johnny at the Fair” etc.
ete., pieces with a familiar and
cheerful melody, and it is too
troublesome to stay near by and
shut the speaker off and on to suit.

That, by the way, touches on a
circumstance which highbrow
musicians do not seem to recognise.
Ordinary people like old familiar
tunes, provided they have pleasant

melody and good harmony—wit-
ness the frequency with wHich
the compositions I have mention-
ed, and some others, used to be
asked for,

But the nuisance affects not only
“Request Time”, but many other
occasions, even good Sunday hours
which might, I should think, be
kept free. Quite often, before the
words of the Benediction, closing
a religious service, have well died
away the announcers are shouting
at you about somebody’s cloth at
so much a yard, or a toothpaste,
or Codliver Oil etc.
noying. The shops and stores are
closed but we have to put up with
their goods being shouted at us—
unless we can go very quickly and
shut down the service.

One appreciates the desires of
the Company to make money, but
with subscribers running into
thousands surely they are doing
well. And we deserve some con-
sideration.

I do not think, either, that it is
good advertising. It seems to me
that you want not only to intro-
duce your goods to prospective
customers, but to do so in a
pleasing and not annoying manner,
and at suftable times, who is there

It is too an- -

that has not heard ad nauseam, all
about Eno and Klim, and who is
there that can be further per-
suaded to buy them? On the con-
trary I can imagine some people's
backs getting up with a vow
never again to buy what has an-
noyed them so often. That is the
beauty of newspaper advertise-
ments; You see them as you read,
and they are there to refer to if
required, but they don’t persecute
you. .

Cricket Figures
The EditorThe Advocate

SIR,—I was ‘perusing the pagss
of the cricketer Spring Annual
1950, and came across an article
written by Philip Thomson under
the caption, “The 1950 West Indies
Team.

In it he wrote, “Rae has only
played two first class games in the
West Indies, but in the second of
these he scored two separate
hundreds and is the only batsman
to do so in inter-colonial cricket.”

I agree with Mr. Thomson that
Rae is the only batsman to score
two separate hundreds in inter-

colonial cricket, but I would like
to point out that Rae only played
one first class game in the West
Indies. He played in a two days
practice match, “Jamaica Next XI
vs. Barbados” and scored 48 and
52 not out, was not considered
good enough for the first colony
match, but he played in the second
and scored _111 and 128 vs Barba-
dos thereby earning himself a
place in cricket history.

Wisden’s Almanack 1948 and
1949 issues, the cricketer’s bible,
apparently unenlightened, writing
about three figures innings on
first appearance said: “The
following feat is without parallel.
_A. Morris, N.S.W., Australia made
his first appearance in first class
cricket in 1940-41”. Now, I would
like to point out that Rae, Jamaica
and West Indies share the world
record with Morris by scoring 111
and 128 vs. Barbados at Kingston,
Jamaica in 1947 on his first ap-
pearance in first class cricket.

His figures in first class cricket
to the end of the West Indies tour
of India are:

Fish Roasted
On the Wharf

ITÂ¥Y URCHINS, who assist
fishermen with their boats,

are roasting the fish they are
given in return at many spots on
the Wharf and Market area, Now
that the flying fish are cheap, a
familicc sight in these areas is to
see two stones about one foot
upart, two pieces of iron placed
ueross the stones ang a heap of
ashes between the tones, This is
a sign that urchins have been
2 0asting fish.
_ Some of these “scout fires” are
in suitable places on the beach
but others are in dangerous areas.

For instance a group of boys
were seen roasting fish on Tues-
day night at the corner of Prince
Alfred Street and the ‘Wharf. The
fire was only a few feet away
from the pailing of Messrs Da-
Costa’s & Co., Cooperage and this
could start fa large scale fire
which would be a threat to build-
ings on the wharf.
A NOTHER CROWD of boys are

using the ledge to the guard

wall by the market to roast their
fish and about five or six of their
home-made fire hearths can be
seen, This is a suitable place to
roast the fish but on the. other
hand the boys should “throw
ashes and bits of wood into the
sea when they have completed.

When roasting fish, some boys
leave the fires and walk away to
see if they can get more fish
This is also a dangerous practice.

ISHERMEN and jish vendors
are making the beach behind
the Market a dumping ground for
stale fish, fish heads and the in-
testines of fish.'This should not
be done because when this refuse
is beginning to decay it not only
attracts flies but gives off a bad
odour.

Other people throwing similar
refuse in the dust bins at Speights-
town are causing an annoyance to
residents Unfortunately these
residents suffer worse because
their dust bins are only cleaned
once a week.

Many flying fish were seen on
the beach behind the market yes-
terday morning but fishermen stil!
deny throwing fish back into the
sea unless they are unfit for human
consumption.
eS FISH were plentiful in

both Bridgetown and Speights-
town on Tuesday night. In Bridge-
town around 4.00 p.m. they were
selling three cents each but
an hour later they were offered
at a cent less.

During the night they were sell-
ing at a cent each and later at six
for ten cents.

‘HE 125TH ANNIVERSARY of

the Mount Tabor Church will
take place at 7.45 tonight. The
Police Band, under Captain
Raison will be in attendance.

As part of their regular fort-
nightly programme, the Police
Band will be giving a Concert at

AARLY ALL the Secondary
Schools are busy preparing
their exhibits for the Empire Week
Exhibition which will open on
May 24 at Combermere School
Hall, The exhibits will be for-
warded to the Combermere School
on Saturday and afterwards they
will be arranged in the Hall.

At last year’s Exhibition 21
schools throughout the island com-
peted and it was of a high stand-
ard. Some beautiful designs and
unique water colours were dis-
played and this created much in-
terest among spectators. The
School Hall was gaily decorated
with flags and bunting and the
Exhibition was opened by the then
Acting Governor, Mr. H.
Perowne.

First Prize in the Senior Divis-
ion went to St. Michael’s Schoo!
with an exhibit depicting “Indus-
tries of the West Indies” while
Queen’s College carried off first
prize in the Junior Division.

It is expected that the standard
of the forthcoming exhibition will
even be higher.
rt DEAD BODY of 87-year-

old Joseph Doughty of Bel
Air, St. Philip, was found along
Beachy Head Road in the same
parish at about 5.30 a.m. yester-
day. It was removed to the mor-
tuary at District “C’” Police Sta-
tion where a post mortem exam-
ination was later performed.

Vestryman
Taxation

KENNETH CARLTON



Withdraws
Law Suit

O’NEALE, a Vestryman of St.

Lucy, filed a Court of Common Pleas petition objecting
the exemption of some people (including the Assessor)

from Ownership Tax.

He did not seek legal advice, and

the petition was drawn up hopelessly wrong. So he took

the advice of His Honour

the Chief Judge, Sir Allan

Collymore, in that Court yesterday, and withdrew the

petition.





Frerich Pictures
At Wakefield

Tomorrow

M. Jacques Leguebe, French
Consul in the West Indies was a
recent arrival here and is a guest
at the Ocean View Hotel.

In an interview with the Advo-
cate, M. Leguebe said that he is
very interested in improving the
relations between French speaking
people and the British in the Brit-
ish West Indies. '

To this end he has formed a
Society in Trinidad where his
Headquarters are located and he
has had a part of his home so fitted
that he has been able to exhibit
examples of French culture, paint-
ings, literature and poetry.

Tomorrow at “Wakefield”, Brit-
ish Council Centre, M. Leguebe
will exhibit a collection of repro-
ductions of French paintings and
French documentary films. The
pictures will be exhibited all day
and the films at 5.00 p.m. They
will be:—

VAN GOGH — his life as illus-
trated in his paintings, with
commentary in French.

COMBOURG CASTLE—the home
which so much influenced Cha-
teaubriand with commentary in
English in the form of extracts
from his “Memoirs d’outre
Tombe.”

His Excellency the Governor
and Mrs. Savage have consented
to be present for the film show at
5.00 p.m.

Admission is free.



Traffic Blocked

About midway on the southern
half of the wharf surrounding the
outer basin of the Careenage, a
big heap of stones, marl and sand
ewe the path of traffic yester-

ay.

This stuff was dug out from the
wharf during the past two days
for the purpose of laying down tie
rods to the new piles that were
being driven down and to give
room for new concrete.

Many pedestrians who did not
know of this, were suddenly dis-
appointed on finding their way
blocked, and had to turn back and
make their way up or down the
wharf by way of the Pier Head.

Some, however, were not pre-
pared to turn back and climbed
over the heap of stuff. Others
were more risky. They treaded
their way across the narrow piles
and looked as though they would
have fallen into the sea at any
moment.

Donkey carts and hand carts
were completely denied of the use
of this road, because added to the
hindrance of the heap of stuff, was
the machinery used in driving the
piles which in itself was a block
to traffic.



Flower Pot Factory
Lacks Equipment

With the necessary modern
equipment at Lancaster Flour-
Pot Factory, this colony could
supply Trinidad where there is‘
a ready market, with 100,000 or
even 250,000 flour pots per year,
the “Advocate” was told yester-

ay.

The informant said that at pres-

ent term potters were being em-
ployed at Lancaster making
flower pots for local firms. The
local demand could easily be met
but no attempt could be made to
undertake the making of large
quantities for overseas markets,
since with the present equip-
ent no great demand could be
et.
The present work was just an
effort to keep the industry alive,
for on it many people still depend-
ed for a living.

Schooner Unloads

Schooner “Princess Louise”
began yesterday to unload its
eargo of fresh fruit, copra, fire-
wood and charcoal with which it
arrived from St. Lucia.

The vessel’s skipper, Captain
Mitchell, told the “Advocate” yes-
terday that they met fine weather
throughout the whole voyage
which lasted three days.



~~ ——-e He will have to pay costs.

The Vestry was represented by
Mr, E. K. Walcott K.C. instructed
by Messrs Yearwood and Boyce.
Mr. W. W. Reece K.C. represented
the Assessor of the parish, Fitz
Reginald Greaves. Mr. Reece was
also instructed by Messrs Year-
wood and Boyce.

The Chief Judge remarked
on the attitude of many Bar-
bi -ians who “think themselves
experts in every walk of life.”
He told O'Neale that he was
far from being an accomplished
lawyer.

Mr. Walcott said he had no de-
sire to prevent
from bringing his case before the
Court. There were, however, cer-
tain difficulties which any lawyer
on the other side would find him-
self in,

After citing section 60 of, the
Vestries Act, 1911—5, Mr. Wal-
cott said that such a_ petition
must be addressed to someone.
One could not just petition
the Registrar, and in any case
O’Neale had not even petitioned
the Registrar, nor had he drawn
up the petition in a way to
indicate to the offending party
what they had to meet.

Wandered
The petitioner had simply
lodged the petition with the
Registrar, and in drawing up

what he called a pefition, had
wandered to and fro, whereas he
should have told them exactly
what he was complaining of. In
addition there were paragraphs
which were utterly irrelevant to
the whole matter.

If he wanted to complain about
the assessor, he had a right to
complain to the Vestry asking
that he be dismissed. It was
obvious that the petition was
directed personally more against
the assessor than against the
rates. He did not want it to be
said, Mr. Walcott added, that he
had sat in his chair without draw-
ing to the attention of the Court,
that that document, which was a
letter rather than a petition, was
out of order.

Mr. Reece also took objection
to the petition. He cited the
Vestries Act at Sections 53—1,
58—2 and 60, and submitted that
the petitioner should have set out
particulars, making objection to
a particular rate laid against any
person. He could not just gen-
erally object to the rates.

All Wrong

The procedure that the petit-
joner had adopted was all wrong.
It had never been done in that
way in any case with which he
had been connected, Mr. Reece
said.

He agreed with what Mr. Wal-
cott had said ‘that the letter or
pefition, was more aimed at the
assessor than the Vestry.

The Chief Judge said that no
one wanted to hamper the petit-
foner, but the Court found itself
in a difficult position.

After it was decided that the
petition could not be amended at
that stage, Mr. Walcott suggested
that the petitioner should be
allowed to explain for himself.

Before the petiticner spoke,
the Chief Judge told him that his
method of procedure had been
wrong in many respects. No one
want:d to hamper him in bring-
ing the petition before the Court,
but a lot of the document was
simply airing vestry squabbles
instead of being a petition in
proper form.

Petitioner then said that he
had brought his petition as regards
exemptions from ownership tax
due to the Vestry on behalf of
the omission of the assessor
himself and certain relatives of
his (petitioner’s).

; Irreguiarities

“On the face of it,” said the
Chief Judge to the petitioner, “it
would appear that there are cer-
tain irregularities which should
be corrected, if what you say has
any substance. But you cannot
‘just come and throw mud here
and there without setting real
grounds to your petition. What
you are saying, as far as I can
see, is that the assessor did not
rate himself and certain other
people.”

Both counsels agreed that the
petitioner had failed to indicate

to their clients what they ition

to rebutt, and that the petitio
was hopelessly out of order.

The Chief Judge then suggested
to the petitioner that the best
course for him to take would be

, fo ask leave to withdraw his

that the matter will be rectified

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

B. Honduras
Reduces
Unemployment

The Government of British
Honduras is embarking on
for road work in order to reduce
unemployment which is a_ big
= there, Mr. E. P. Bradley,

bour Officer of that country told
the “Advocate” yesterday.

Mr. Bradley is now attending
the Labour Officers’ Conference at
Hastings House. He arrived on
Monday evening by B.W.1LA. via
Jamaica and is staying at the
Hastings Hotel.

He said that roads were vitally
necessary for opening up the
country and added that from a
long-term view point, there were
various development schemes
under consideration which would
remove the unemployment prob-
lem entirely if they materialized.

Unemployment in British Gui-
ana was largely brought about
by the severe drought of 1949
which threw many small planters
in the wage earning field.

In addition to work on the con-
struction of the roads, he said that
several relief works had been in
force since August last year.

Expansion had already begun in
the citrus industry and prepara-
tions of fields for the Lacatan
banana

Fields were being prepared for

the planting of food crops and Hill

these would be reaped in October.
Timber is the chief product and
both the mahogany and chicle in-
dustries are at a low ebb due to
the falling off of demands in the
American market. S

On the other hand, Mr. Bradley
said that the pine industry was
proceeding at a rapid we in sup-
plying lumber for the West Indian
markets.

Grenada Is
Fortunate

The unemployment problem in
Grenada at the moment is not a
very acute one, Mr. Gordon Da
Breo, the colony’s Acting Labour
Officer, told the “Advocate” yes-
terday.

Mr. Da Breo is here for the
Labour Officers’ Conference and is
Staying at the Hastings Hotel.

He said that Grenada is in a
fortunate position at present in
that the prices for their main
product cocoa, are somewhat
higher than previous years. On
account of that, the estate owners
are now in the process of rehabili-
tating their estates and it is pos-
sible for every agricultural labour-
er who wishes to work to find
employment at the present time.

Mr. Da Breo returned to Grenada
two months ago after spending 18
months’ leave in the United King-
dom. During that time, he quali-
fied as a Barrister-at-Law and also
attended the Colonial Service
Training Course for Labour Offi-
cers,

Well Nearly Filled

About 12 feet of the 16-foot
well which was discovered in one
of the “gaps” of the Garden Land,
Country Road, was filled up yes-
férday with large stones. The
well was discovered when a
wheel of a hearse which was con-
veying a corpse along the “gap”
sank through the foot-and-a-half
layer of earth which covered the
well for many years.

An old unused main pipe runs
over the well and residents think
that it was used in days of wind
mills,

One house is only about two
yards from the well and although
the well was temporarily covered
by pieces of iron when it was dis-
covered, all mothers kept their
children close until it was filled.

Strangers passing along the
“gap” are warned by residents
to be careful lest they should fall
into any other unknown well.

Case Struck Out

A case brought by Edgar
Phillips of Green Hill, St. Mich-
ael, against his brother Samuel
Phillips, claiming partnership in
a house situated on Green Hill,
was struck out yesterday by Mr.
Justice J. W. B. Chenery in the
Court of Original Jurisdiction.
The case was struck out because
that Court had no Jurisdiction
over such a matter as the value of
the house was more than £50.

Twenty-six-year-old Edgar and
23-year-old Samuel built a house
between them, the one putting
$168 and the other $162. Edgar

Inquiry

After a short deliberation a 9-
man jury decided that Lionel
Marshall of Two Mile Hill came to
his death as a result of the acci-
dent which took place on I'wo
Mile Hill when an inquiry which
was held by Mr. A. J. H. Hanschell,
Coroner of District “A” was con-
cluded yesterday.

Lionel Marshall wag ,admitted to
the General Hospital about 12.40
a.m, on Monday, May 8 and died
about 1.30 a.m. after an accident
on Two Mile Hill between the mo-
tor car M—2385, owned and driven
by Courtney Arthur of Haggatts
Hall and a motor lorry, M—1848,

owned by Guy Payne and driven

On Patrol Duty

P.C. 199 William Austin said on
May 8 about 12.30 a.m., he was
on patrol duty along Government
Hill with P.C. Warner. He heard
shouts of stop there! stop there!
stop there! and he ran in the di-
rection where they came from. He
saw the motor car M—2385 com-
ing towards him on the left side
of the road with about four per-
sons running after it,

The car was approaghing slowly
and before he asked the driver
what had happened the people
said that it was an accident. He
asked the driver what had hap-
pened and he said “My friend
“Cocker” got tight and I am taking
him home but a lorry was parked
up the road and I collided with it.
He got a cut and I am taking him
to the Hospital.”

Test Brakes

He told Warner to accompany
them to the hospital so that the
brakes could be tested. He saw a
man who was described as
“Cocker” sitting on the left of the
driver and his head was over the
back rest of the car.

He saw the lorry M. 1848 parked
on the left side of Two Mile Hill
Road facing west with about 12
persons standing on the platform.

The driver of the lorry showed
him the right rear corner of the
platform which was disconnected.
On measuring the width of the
road he found it was 22 feet and
the width of the lorry was six feet,
seven inches, The left fronf wheel
of the lorry was three feet,
one and a half inches from
the south side. The rear light of
the lorry was burning. He found
a piece of a door knob at the spot
where the lorry was parked and
gave it to Sergeant Bancroft.

Another Policeman

P.c. 139 Ivan Warner said on
May 8 about 12.30 a.m. he was on
duty at Government Hill with
Austin when he heard shouts of,
“Stop! Stop!” coming from the di-
rection of Two Mile Hill. He went
and saw the motor car M—2385
proceeding down Government Hiil
in the direction of Two Mile Hill
driven by Courtney Arthur, The
car was travelling slowly and on
inquiring what had happened
Arthur told him that he was going
down Two Mile Hill and collided
with a lorry. The man next to
him in the front seat had got hurt,
he said and he was taking him to
the General Hospital.

He (Warner) got into the car,
sat down in the back seat, and
was taken to the hospital. In the
car was Arthur who was driving;
next to him was Marshall, and in
the back seat a man named Jor-
dan. Marshall was bleeding from
the nose and had a deep dent in
his skull,

How It Happened

On the way to the hospital he
asked Arthur how the accident
happened. Arthur said that while
coming down Two Mile Hill about
100 yards from Marshall's home
he saw a lorry which was parked
on the Jeft side of the road with-
out lights and he collided with it.
He did not collide head-on, but in
taking off, the left side of the car
where Marshall was sitting col-
lided with the lorry. He did not
see the lorry until he was close
upon it.

Jordan said that while Arthur
was driving to Chapel Gap en

was travelling about 25 to 30
miles per hour and not 25 to 35

reds and 12 of the 2d blues—are
known to exist. All trace of the
thousand issued in 1847 were lost,
and collectors were unaware of
their existence till two decades
later.

They were the first stamps of
Mauritius, which was the first
British colony to issue stamps and,
in fact, only the fifth country in
the world to do sc. The design of
the Queen’s head was similar to
that used by Great Britain.

The story of how Mr, J. Bar-
nard, a half-blind watchmaker of
Port Louis, made a mistake in the
engraving of the stamps—by put-
ting ‘Post Office’ instead of ‘Post
Paid’—is probably well known to
Mauritians. The Postmaster of
Mauritius, apparently, only told
Barnard verbally what wording
should appear on the stamps. The
watchmaker remembered what he
should engrave on the right-hand
side (Mauritius), but forgot the
wording for the left-hand side, So
he went to ask the Postmaster. As
he was approaching the Post Office
he looked up and saw the sign
painted on the outside. This
seemed to jog his memory and he
went -back and engraved ‘Post
Office’. At least that is the story.

Schoolboy

Five of the Post Office Mauri-
tius to be shown at Grosvenor
House belong to a European phila-
telist who uses the nom-de-plume
Sextus Afranius. Two specimens,
one of each value, are used to-
gether on a letter addressed to a
Bordeaux firm of wine merchants.
They were discovered by a French
schoolboy.

Neither of the two specimens
from the Royal collection have
been seen by the public since they
were bought by King George V.
He paid £1,450 for the twopenny
one (unused) in 1904, It was dis-
covered by a certain official of the
Civil Service Commission in a
scarcely remembered six-penny
pocket book which he had used
as a stamp album when a school-
boy.

The finest existing ‘Post Office’
piece is an envelope bearing two
ld, stamps which is being dis-
played at the Exhibition by Mrs.
John D. Dale, of New York, She
inherited the collection from her
father, Alfred F. Lichtenstein,
who died in 1947, This letter was
found in an Indian bazaar 53 years
ago and was bought for £50
Later it changed hands for £1,800.
Lichtenstein valued it at £11,000
and was said to have refused
£30,000 when collectors later
offered to buy it.

Exhibits from 185 British and
167 overseas philatelists are on
view at Grosvenor House. These
include the King’s stamps and the
priceless G.P.O. collection. The
public and the philatelist will see
some of the world’s most interest-
ing and rare stamp collections
valued at over £2,500,000,

ernor of Barbados, is now Gov-
ernor of Mauritius.

The head and rear lights were
burning and it was parked on the

that time he felt a blow as if
something had struck the lorry
from behind, When he inspected
the lorry the back beam was
broken and he noticed that some

On a pitch which gave the
bowlers no help the batsmen were
masters from the start and al-
though Goddard tried eight

always seemed at ease.

Dewes unusually free style hit

hard all round the wicket and he
completed 100 out of 167 in two

Draws With
Empire

Notre Dame and Empire battled
to a 1—l draw when they met
at second division football at
Queen's Park yesterday.

This match was to. decide
whether Empire would challenge
Notre Dame for the second divis-
ion cup and the decision is, that
Notre Dame, with still another
match to play, are already win-
ners of the second division trophy.

Babb, inside right for Empire,
scored the first goal of the
evening for his team. Empire

kept this lead until late in the
game when they fouled in the
penalty area, conceding a penalty
to Notre Dame. Headley of Notre:
Dame took the kick and placed
it well into the nets. ©

Empire’s goal was shot abou‘
three minutes after play began
Babb’s display in_ shooting
this goal was fine, After receiv-
ing a through pass from midfield, |
he ran down alone, beating the
Notre Dame's backs, and finally





This half ended with the score
at 1—0 in favour of Empire.

It was not until about 15 min-
utes before end of play that Notre
Dame equalised. When this was
accomplished, both teams began
to press for supremacy. The goal-
keeping was to a good standard
and what would have been goals
for both Notre Dame and Empire

were turned into some clever
saves.
' The teams were :-
Notre Dame— Wilkinson,
Straughn, Browne, Daniel, Rob-

erts, Davis, Headley, Daniel, Gill,
Resf, Daniel.

Empire— Archer, St. John,
Jordan, Wickham, Rynoe, Clarke,
Rarrew, Morris, Babb, McCollin,

Both B U.O.C. and I the offer was quite unacceptable its associates T.L.L. are fully cognisant of the economic standards and conditions in the West Indies and conform to the accepted standards at conducting relations with labour. In the view of B.U.O.C. it would be quite impracticable to assess in terms of money the value of the leases which have been statulorily determined, the exploration work which has already been done, the value of recoverable casing In the wells, the supply of a substantial quantity of gas to Barbados from Well No. 19 for dOines*> and industrial purposes, and the potential value f Well No. 20 as a similar source of gas. In view of B.U.O.C. the most practical means of satisfying these claims is by the to them and after a brief reference by their spokesman to their rnrr.petitors. they roe* abruptly and immediately walked out of the room without further comment. The representatives of Trinidad Leaseholds who had come to the Island for negotiations returned by air lo Tiinldad the following day. Faced with this walk-out by B U.O.C. 'Trinidad Leaseholds. the Government had to decide on the nest step and reached the conclusion that It would be In the in terests of the people of Barbados to continue discussions with the null Oil Corporation on the basis of a prospecting license over half the Island, leaving the remaining; half as a Crown reserve pending further developments. Nine Day Delay Accordingly negotiations were continued with the Oulf Oil Cored on all outstanding points subject to approval of a clean draft of the license by the Gulf Corporation's Head Office." Mr. Tanner -eturned to Alberts the following day. A clean draft license was despatched by air mail to New York on the 7th of May but, owing to inordinate delays in the post, it was not received until the 15th of May, nine dajas later. The Gulf Corporation dealt with the matter expeditlously and Ihe following day telegraphed Iheir approval and on the 17th of May the license was signed at Government House. The Agreement The main points of the agreement are as follows:— (1) A prospecting license for 4 vears over approximately half the area of the Island (namely 85.3 square miles out of a total area of 166.3 square miles), such area to comprise the following parishes—St. Lucy. St. Peter. St. Andrew (excluding Isting natural ui wells). St. Joseph. St. Thorns* and Christ Church. <2) A prospecting license over the territorial waters contiguous to that part of the Leeward coast which lies between Harrison Point Lighthouse and the point where the boundary of St. Peter's parish meets the coast. <3> The right to lease 50% of the prospecting area In one or shore lots for 21 years renewable for I further 21 .vears. and the option lo acnulre leases of the remainder at a competitive price. (4) The royalty lo be 12|% for 21 years and thereafter at a rate not exceeding 16 2.'3"t if the Governorin-Execulive Committee so prescribe In addition the company will pay a rental of SI per year for every acre under lease.

The net result is that to-day T.L.L.. with increased refinery capacity, has Inadequate supplies of crude oil Ily reason of the dollar situation it was forced to dispose of its assets In Venezuela, and for the same reason Is unable for purposes of oil production to enter Canada and the USA. It has recent I v drlled In the Bahamas and British Guiana without success. Apart from Trinidad, Barbados therefore offers the only possible outlet in T.L.L. to Increase its crude output in the British Empire. On the other hand a competing U.S.A. Cnmpnny is not fettered by dollar restrictions and is free to drill In the areas not open T.L I.." Offered W Per tVnl The Governor In Execut Committee, after giving most careful consideration to the claim of the B.U.O.C. and the arguments adduced in support of it decided that B.U.O.C. and their associatis. Trinidad leaseholds, should be offered 55 per cent of the Island with the right to lease half this area for 21 years renewable for n further 21 years, if the lessee so wished, and further that they should be given first choice of Ihe four sub-divlsions Into which it was proposed to divide the Island for prospecting purposes. In addition, they should be granted 50 per cent of certain of the territorial waters with similar right" as regards leasing. The balance of the area, namely 45 per cent of the Island and 50 per cent rf the terr.torial waters, with a right lo lease half this area shoui-i be offered to the Gulf Oil Corporation.

This was their reaction to last night's announcement in Buenos Aires that the Financial Committee of the Anglo-Argentine Trade Negotiations would meet again | this week, after the negotiations had been In abeyance for time. They expressed dissent In recent Press reports that the British Government had decided against a credit, saying that thdecision would depend on the negotiations at a whole. In their opinion the Uritish negotiators would hardly tako a rigid line one way or the other on one Hem In the negotiation divorced from all the others. Among British officials, those concerned with the wider aspects of an AngloArgentine Agreement ware most friendly to the idea of a credit which is warranted by the agreement as a whole.

Plans Still On

(By MONTAGUE TYLER)
(Reuter’s Correspondent)

week: in the
of a decree-law
offering extensive conces-
sions to new _ businesses
created for these purposes.

Among the attractions
offered are tax exemptions
on machinery imported for
aomestic inaustry, tax ex-
emptions on imported basic
raw materials not available
locally, exemption of foreign
experts and _ teehnicians

protecting native labour, and

to-day with Colonial Secretary James
Griffiths, British Food Mini

ster Maurice Webb, and Mr.

There was a brief discussion and
a time-table fixed for a future
meeting.

It is understood that the full
discussions will begin early next
week. The presence of Mr. Dug-
dale at to-day’s talks was taken as
meaning that he will represent the
Colonial Secretary at next week’s
full discussions, since Mr. Griffiths
will be in Malaya with War Minis-
ter John Strachey, seeing for
themselves how the Communist

The British Sugar Refiners As-
sociation to-day sent a statement
to Ministers and party leaders de-
claring that there had been no
indication that official plans to
nationalise sugar refining had been
dropped or amended.

“There are indications that
sections of the (Labour) Party
are favouring the substitution
of the word ‘mutualisation’ for
‘nationalisation’, the statement
added. ‘No practical distine-
tion can be drawn between a
‘mutualised’ and a ‘national-
ised’ industry.”

than a mere jest. The House will

SKED how he had arrived @
the conclusion that increase
in the price of coal, gas, elee

Charlie Suet said: “It is a matter
of statistics and the cost of living
index. The whole position must
be viewed not from the point oj
view of the individual at any
given moment but from the wider
standpoint of overall figures
When an individual pays more
for what he has to buy, he nat-
urally thinks the cost of living
has increased. But the speeches
of responsible Ministers and their
adjustment of relevant statistics
to larger bodies and longer peri-
ods should reassure him that in
spite of appearances to the
contrary, a rise in prices at this
moment is a sign of health:
recovery, and may even lower the
cost of living.”

Housewives Refuse High Prices

LONDON

British housewives, enraged
over the high prices of vegeta-
bles, have declared a “buyers
strike” until prices drop.

In recent years the Britisi
housewife has been inclined to
accept increased price of food-
stuffs with a shrug of her shoul-
ders and a moan to her next door
neighbour. But recent increased
vegetable charges Were the last
straw.

Prices at which the housewives
rebelled

were 14 cents for one
pound of cabbage; 14 cents
pound for onions; 24 cents for

carrots and 21 cents for a cauli-
flower. One year ago the price:
would have been about 5 cents a
pound for cabbage and _ onions,
10 cents for carrots and 9 cents
for a cauliflower.

Apprehensive that the boycott
might spread, vegetable retailers
and shopkeepers — who blame
shortage of vegetables for the
high prices — quickly arranged
conferences with housewife com-
mittees to talk over the problem

In some cases an agreement
was reached that there would be
no boycott if retailers promised
to drop prices as soon as sup-
plies became plentiful.

Other meetings, however, were
marked by spirited arguments
and declarations by housewives
that the boycott was on. Housv-
wives from other areas wired
their support for such decisions

B.U.O.C. placed at the dispos-
al of the Government, free of
chargé, the services of Dr. Senn |
to make a very thorough survey |
of the underground water, re- |
sources of the Island and his|
report has beén and (it is be-
lieved) will continue to be of
enormous value to this Colony. |

In_ particular, B.U.O.C, lo-
cated and drilled the first Belie
Well which proved the area
that to-day provides the
greater part of the Island's
water supply. This was done
without charge to Govern-
ment.

B.U.O.C. has long establish-
ed in Barbados and forms an
integral part of the Island's
economy. Both B.U.O.C. and
its associates T.L.L. are fully



tives stated that the offer of 45 per
per cent of the Island was satis-
factory to them but reserved cer-
tain points for further discussion
pending the arrival of another
representative of the Corporation
from New York, who was ex-
pected the following day.
Walk Out

The representatives of B.U.O.C./
Trinidad Leaseholds stated that
the offer was quite unacceptable
to them and after a brief refer-

cognisant of the economic|ence by their spokesman to their
standards and _ conditions in| competitors, they f abruptly
the West Indies and conform|and immediately walked out of

to the accepted standards of
conducting relations with la-

rs;

In the view of B.U.O.C., it
would be quite impracticable
to assess in terms of money
the value of the leases which
have been statutorily deter-
mined, the exploration work
which has already been done,
the value of recoverable cas-
ing in the wells, the stipply of
a substantial quantity of gas
to Barbados from Well No. 19
for domestic and industrial
purposés, and the potential
value ef Well No. 20 as a
similar sourcé of gas.

In view of B.U.O.C., the
most practical means of satis-
fying these claims is by the
grant of an exclusive prospect-
ing license over the whole
Island for a_ period of four
years so as to bring to a final
conclusion the work and en-
deavourcontributed by
B.U.O.C. to the exploration for
oil in Barbados.

Finally, if should be men-
tioned that during the war

weré required by the Allied
Governments unduly to over-
producé their oil Jeases_ in
Trinidad. T.L.L. also increas-
ed its refinery facilities to
meet this increased production
during the war years. The net
result is that to-day T.L.L.,
with increased refinery capa-
city, has inadequate supplies
of crude oil. By reason of the
dollar situation it was forced
to dispose of its assets in Ven-
ezuela, and for the same rea-
son is unable for purposes of
oil production to enter Canada
and the U.S.A, It has recently
drilled in the Bahamas and
British Guiana without suc-
cess. Apart from Trinidad,
Barbados thérefore offers the
only possible outlet in T.L.L. to
increase its crude output in the
British Empire. On the other
hand a competing U.S.A, Com-
pany is not fettered by dollar
restrictions and is free to drill

in the areas not open to
T.LL.”
Offered 55 Per

Cent |
The Governor - in - Executive
Committee, after giving most
careful consideration to the claim
of the B.U.O.C. and the argu-
ments adduced in support of it
decided that B.U.O.C. and their
associates, Trinidad Leaseholds,
should be offered 55 per cent of
the Island with the right to lease
half this area for 21 years re-
newable for a further 21 years,
if the lessee so wished. and fur-
ther that they should be given
first choice of the four sub-di-
visions into which it was pro-
posed to divide the Island for
prospecting purposes. In addi-
tion. they should be granted 50
per cent of certain of the terri-
torial waters with similar rights
as regards leasing. The balance
of the aréa, namely 45 per cent
of the Island and 50 per cent of
the territorial waters. with a
right to lease half this area should
be offered to the Gulf Oil Cor-
poration. The above decision
was communicated to the parties
by the Attorney General and Mr.
Tanner on the 24th of April. The

Faced with this walk-out by

the Government had to decide on

the next step and reached the con-

The Agreement
The main points of the agree-

ment are as follows:— ,

(1) A prospecting license for 4
years over approximately
half the area of the Island
(namely 85.3 square miles
out of a total area of 166.3
square miles), such area to
comprise the following par-
ishes—St. Lucy, St. Peter,
St. Andrew (excluding ex-
isting natural gas wells), St.
Joseph, . St. horas and
Christ Church.

A prospecting license over
the térritorial waters con-
tiguous to that part of the
Leeward coast which lies
between Harrison Point
Lighthouse and the point
where the boundary of St.
Peter’s parish meets the
coast.

The right to lease 50% of
the prospecting area in one
or more lots for 21 years
renewable for a further 21

years, and the option to ac- }

quire leases of the remain-
der at a competitive price.
The royalty to be 124% for
21 years and thereafter at
a rate not exceeding
16 2/3% if the Governor-
in-Executive Committee so
prescribe. In addition the
company will pay a rental
of $1 per year for every
acre under lease,

$20,000 Monthly

It is expected that the Gulf Oil
Corporation will arrange for a
geophysical crew to commence
work in the Island within the next
month or so and drilling opera-
tions will starf as soon as possible
after this preliminary work is
completed. It is estimated that
geophysical operations alone will
involve an expenditure of $20,000
per month and that by the time the
first hole is drilled to 10,000 feet
the total expenditure incurred by
the Corporation will be in the
region of $2,000,000. The Gulf Oil

company in the world, having a

Russia Reduces |

.
Reparations
MOSCOW, May 16
Russia has halved East-Ger- |
man reparations and extended |

the time for their payment. This |
was announced in an exchange |
ef letters between Premier Stalin |
and East German Prime Minister
Otto Grotewohl.

The new figure will be $3,171, |
million and payment will be made |
in the next 15 years. }

Stalin said that his Government |
had consulted Poland and had
taken into account the prompt:
way in which East Germany has
so far fulfilled her reparations
obligations to Russia. |

The cut sprang from “the de-
sire to ease the efforts of the |
German people to reduce their |
economy, the letter said.

A Washington State Depart-

ment official described Marshal
Stalin’s agreement to reduce
Germany’s reparations payments

by half as a “sort of empty ges-
ture.”

It was “just being done for
political propaganda effects,” the
official said last night. —Reuter.

There are a few more notes on Housing
mainly pre-occupied with Housing Author-
ities and comments on the relative failure

date. One suggestion is worthy of special
attention because it contains, however
diffidently, the germ of hope for houses.

“In most territories,” it is noted, “there
are widely distributed private funds avail-
able for house construction and a tradi-
tion of self help. It is desirable that hous-
ing programmes should to the greatest pos-
sible extent mobilise and canalise these
funds”. :

Some day, but-

The day when we can again
stand on our own feet as a nation,
free from foreign debt, and able
to. look the whole world in the
face, would indeed be an 6 cat...

long way off.

Moreover it diverts labour

attracts to Londoners criticism
which they do not want.

To the extent that the Festival
is successful in attracting foreign-

example, the problem of hotei
accommodation in London,

The Board of Trade is already
at its wit’s end to cope with the
present tourist trade so far as

Indeed the mcre | think about

convinced I am that the reasons
given for it are not the real reas-
ons, The real reason, I suspect,
is Mr. Morrison’s well-known and
entirely laudable desire to clean
up the South Bank of the Thames.

No capital city, situated on a
noble river makes as little use of
the river as we do of the Thames,
which John Burns once described
as “liquid history.”

Long ago, the South Bank
should have been delivered from
its unredeemed shabbiness and

present fantastic building prices

is how much will the community gain by
, the improvement of housing.

“Expenditure on housing” to quote a
- textbook on Social Administration, “has
been productive of good. It removes many
thousands of our fellow citizens from en-
vironments which are productive of evil
‘to environments which elevate. It is en-
abling the nation to rear better prospec-
tive citizens with less probability of their
being a charge upon the local and national
“exchequers.” ‘

And expenditure on housing diminishes
expenditure on preventive medicine, public
assistance, mental deficiency and all the
other evils which result from bad housing
conditions.

{ Housing cannot be written off as a very
expensive luxury which Barbados cannot
afford. Bad housing is at the root of all
our troubles and at the root springs health
or disease.

Comparisons with costs in Great Britain
are dangerous but it is worth noting that
the annual commitments of the Exche-
quer under all housing schemes in Great
Britain and Wales from the end of the
°Great War 1914—18 to the end of March
1938 are approximately £15,400,000 while
the corresponding commitments of local
authorities are about £ 3,500,000. This vast
expenditure on houses represents an in-
crease of three and one half million houses
in England and Wales during that period.
It is worth noting in passing that of this
number over one million were built by
local authorities and two and a half million

by private enterprise.
‘

Although this expenditure is impossible
in the British West Indies (unless Great
Britain at this late hour, takes a leaf from
the United States’ book and refunds to the

WHAT happens to the defeated
candidate for Parliament? How
does he view his failure, and how
do his ambitions stand for the
future?

The Temple, London, where
barristers carry on their practices,
gives an unexpected answer to
these questions. Its few acres
hold more also-rans of the last
election — Tories, Socialists and
Liberals—than any other area a
thousand times its size.

And from its crooked lanes, its
squares and gardens rises with
fervency a hosanna of thanks-
giving for the blessing of defeat,
and the sound of scores of breasts
being beaten as their owners
promise themselves never, never
again to try to win their case be-
fore the electorate.

When a defeated barrister can-
didate meets an MP colleague, his
greeting is more than usually
cheerful. The MP knows this
means that the other is thinking.
“There but for the marvellous
good sense of my constituency go
I’, and the member grinds his
teeth with rage.

BOTH the rage of the vietors
and the pleasure of the vanquished
flow from the same realisation:
that for barristers promoted to
Westminster the hustings have
changed into a scaffold, littered
with the dead and dying corpses
of once prosperous practices.

Political perferment_ has meant
professional disaster. A man
simply cannot combine member-
ship of the 1950 Parliament with
an active practice in the courts.

There were a few barristers of
foresight who realised that this
situation might arise, and never,
in consequence, stood at the elec-
tion.

One of them is Mr, Christopher
Shaweross, K.C., brother of Sir
Hartley, and Socialist member in
the last Parliament for Widnes.
He announced in advance that his
professional commitments _ pre-
vented him from seeking re-elec-
tion,

For the majority the tempta-
tion of politics was too much.
They advanced nobly to the fray,

Says Charles Ray

WHEN the sick and the senile
must come in ambulances to vote
it is not an excuse liable to com-
mend itself to the Party that one
of its healthy supporters must ap-
pear in a libel action, say, at Car-
lisle Assizes.

On the other hand, when a
solicitor has engaged counsel to
appear in a libel action at Car-
lisle Assizes, it is not an excuse
liable to commend itself to the sol-
icitor that his counsel must clock
in at Westminster. With the use
of fast transport, cunning, and
about three hours sleep a night a
barrister-MP may for a time paste
over the space between these two
stools, but, sooner rather than
later, must fall between.

This position holds much greater
interest and importance than
merely providing an opportunity
for the unsympathetic many to
laugh at the dilemma of a highly
embarragsed few. It may in-
dicate the unharnessing of a pair
of horses, law and politics, that
have traditionally run as a team in
British fife, with marked conse-
quences on the atmosphere and
policies of the British system of
government,

In feudal times the lAwyer stood
with the cleric at the right hand
of illiterate kings and barons who
wielded power. When parlia-
mentary government came the
lawyer transferred himself and
his influence to Parliament.

But it was with the rise of
popular democracy in the 19th
century that the lawyers, in great
numbers, came to the fore in
politics. The law was the royal
route through which a man could
come by the glittering prizes on
his talents alone: by the force of
his oratory, the clarity of his
brain, resource, appearance and
an unlimited appetite for work.

It is necessary only to cite a
few names of the living and from
the recently dead to appreciate
the strength of this connection:
Sir Stafford Cripps; Lord Simon,
Viscount Jowitt; Birkenhead;
Asquith; Haldane; Carson; Hail-

As late as the time of the
National Government, in 1931,
nearly 40 members of the Bar
were members of the Government,
inside the Cafinet and out of it.
The present Government, includ-
ing the English and Scottish law
officers, has found place for only
10 members of the Bar; two of
them, Sir Stafford Cripps and
Viscount Jowitt, are in the
Cabinet.

This illustrates a recent ten-
dency which has operated inde-
pendently of the development of
Parliament into a - jegislation
factory in which everyone works
overtime.

The Socialists in power have
had to break outside the lawyers
ring in the distribution of political
favours. The Trade Union official
comes first, and, after him, a new
phenomenon in the English politi-
cal scene — the University in-
tellectual.

The rewards for the lawyer who
reaches the top of the tree in
politics are still quite attractive
enough to enslave the endeavour
of the most ambitious’ and most
self- confident ofsyoung barristers.

The office of Lord Chancellor
and Attorney-General both carry
with them £10,000 a year; the
Solicitor General draws £7,000 a
year. But for the men—and they
are the majority — who would
rather have their cake as barris-
ters than bread and butter as
back-benchers, the impossibility of
eating at both tables makes their
choice easy. They will eat cake
and renounce all claim *o be Prime
Minister,

THIS will be all to"the good,
especially for the Tory Party,
which has done less than the
Socialists to escape from the
lawyer’s embrace.

A party must give evidence by
the personalities of those who
wield the decisive influence in its
counsels that it stands, as it claims,
for the broad national interest.

And it cannot but fail to give
a true reflection of that interest
when it is dominated by men of

Dutra will be picked. Only Brigadier Eduardo
Gomez—who veteran observers recalled as not
friendly towards the United States some ten years
ago but who cooperated, as head of the Brazilian
air force when the Rio de Jangiro government
declared war on the axis—has so-far been pro-
claimed candidate, But Getulio Vargas, whose
now-it’s-on-now-it’s-off policy of friendship to the
United States marked his 15 years in power, may
also run,

Brazil is an important source of war materials,
specially manganese, rubber, iron and vegetabie
‘oils, and Vargas’ recent bickerings with Brazilian
communists has
observers,

worried many United States

Next on the list is Uruguay where the strong
nationalistic and anti-United States Herrerista
party, according to reports from Montevideo, has
a 50—50 chance of winning the coming November
26 elections. Uruguay is an important source of
foodstuffs.

Bolivia—one of the world’$ most important
sources of tin and other minerals—will face ithe
crucial test in May, 1951, when the MNR party
which was accused of being friendly towards the
Hitler regime, will make another bid for power.

Argentine elections are scheduled for early 1952
and Chile’s during the following September. The
first, where President Peron and his nationalistic
policies were expected to be re-elected for another
six years, furnishes large quantities of food-
stuffs to fighting armies, Chile, important source
of nitrates for gunpowder manufacture, has an
important, although outlawed, communist party
which might influence the outcome of the elections,
threatening the current close collaboration of
President Gonzalez Videla with the United States.

Apart from the danger of paralyzing the flow
of strategic raw materials to the United States, the
election of governments unfriendly to Washington
in any of those countries—diplomatic observers
claimed—would break the political unity of the
continent,

The Americas have been working, with rare ex-
ceptions, as one bloc in most international meet-
ings, specially in the United Nations. This unity—
totalling 21 votes—has enabled the United States to
achieve several victories over other blocs, spe-
cially against the pro-Soviet group.

both in quantity and quality of houses.

The problem facing the British West
Indies is how to get down the inflated cost

of house building.

Two pointers come trom the United
Kingdom.

Bournville as an example of social ex-
periment and Port Sunlight as an expres-
sion of welfare work were experiments
carried out by employers of labour in pro~
viding houses for the working classes.

i The other pointer is the Housing Act of
1936 which gives powers, facilities and
assistance to bodies of persons and private
individuals who are interested in providing
or desirous of providing houses for the
working classes.

This act is in marked contrast to Barba-
dos where in recent years an importer of
stone cutting machinery was heavily taxed.

The problem of houses in Barbados is the
problem of cutting the cost to suit the
problem, and of bringing down the cost of
all houses in the community. It cannot be
tackled by resignation or ‘depression.

The Editor The Advocate,

SIR,—Some weeks ago you pub-
lished a letter (from a Mr. Jack-
son if I remember aright) com-
plaining that a large portion of
Radio Distribution’s “Request
Time” was taken taken up with a
crowd of advertisements, and ap-
pealing for the preservation of that
programme. The letter ought to
have been followed up by other
subscribers, for it seems that no
notice has been taken of it by the
Management. At any rate there
has been no improvement—rather
the opposite.

The situation is really very
annoying. In my home we have
almost given up listening at that
time, which is a distinct loss, a
deprivation, since we used to en-
joy some of the records often
asked for, such as “Sending Red
Roses, You, you, you, Grandfather's
Clock, Johnny at the Fair” etc.
ete., pieces with a familiar and
cheerful melody, and it is too
troublesome to stay near by and
shut the speaker off and on to suit.

That, by the way, touches on a
circumstance which highbrow
musicians do not seem to recognise.
Ordinary people like old familiar
tunes, provided they have pleasant

melody and good harmony—wit-
ness the frequency with wHich
the compositions I have mention-
ed, and some others, used to be
asked for,

But the nuisance affects not only
“Request Time”, but many other
occasions, even good Sunday hours
which might, I should think, be
kept free. Quite often, before the
words of the Benediction, closing
a religious service, have well died

at you about somebody’s cloth at

or Codliver Oil etc.
noying. The shops and stores are
closed but we have to put up with
their goods being shouted at us—
unless we can go very quickly and
shut down the service.

One appreciates the desires of
the Company to make money, but
with subscribers running into
thousands surely they are doing
well. And we deserve some con-
sideration.

I do not think, either, that it is
good advertising. It seems to me
that you want not only to intro-
duce your goods to prospective
customers, but to do so in a
pleasing and not annoying manner,
and at suftable times, who is there

It is too an- -

that has not heard ad nauseam, all
about Eno and Klim, and who is
there that can be further per-
suaded to buy them? On the con-
trary I can imagine some people's
backs getting up with a vow
never again to buy what has an-
noyed them so often. That is the
beauty of newspaper advertise-
ments; You see them as you read,
and they are there to refer to if
required, but they don’t persecute
you. .

Cricket Figures
The EditorThe Advocate

SIR,—I was ‘perusing the pagss
of the cricketer Spring Annual
1950, and came across an article
written by Philip Thomson under
the caption, “The 1950 West Indies
Team.

In it he wrote, “Rae has only
played two first class games in the
West Indies, but in the second of
these he scored two separate
hundreds and is the only batsman
to do so in inter-colonial cricket.”

I agree with Mr. Thomson that
Rae is the only batsman to score
two separate hundreds in inter-

colonial cricket, but I would like
to point out that Rae only played
one first class game in the West
Indies. He played in a two days
practice match, “Jamaica Next XI
vs. Barbados” and scored 48 and
52 not out, was not considered
good enough for the first colony
match, but he played in the second
and scored _111 and 128 vs Barba-
dos thereby earning himself a
place in cricket history.

Wisden’s Almanack 1948 and
1949 issues, the cricketer’s bible,
apparently unenlightened, writing
about three figures innings on
first appearance said: “The
following feat is without parallel.
_A. Morris, N.S.W., Australia made
his first appearance in first class
cricket in 1940-41”. Now, I would
like to point out that Rae, Jamaica
and West Indies share the world
record with Morris by scoring 111
and 128 vs. Barbados at Kingston,
Jamaica in 1947 on his first ap-
pearance in first class cricket.

His figures in first class cricket
to the end of the West Indies tour
of India are:

Fish Roasted
On the Wharf

ITÂ¥Y URCHINS, who assist
fishermen with their boats,

are roasting the fish they are
given in return at many spots on
the Wharf and Market area, Now
that the flying fish are cheap, a
familicc sight in these areas is to
see two stones about one foot
upart, two pieces of iron placed
ueross the stones ang a heap of
ashes between the tones, This is
a sign that urchins have been
2 0asting fish.
_ Some of these “scout fires” are
in suitable places on the beach
but others are in dangerous areas.

For instance a group of boys
were seen roasting fish on Tues-
day night at the corner of Prince
Alfred Street and the ‘Wharf. The
fire was only a few feet away
from the pailing of Messrs Da-
Costa’s & Co., Cooperage and this
could start fa large scale fire
which would be a threat to build-
ings on the wharf.
A NOTHER CROWD of boys are

using the ledge to the guard

wall by the market to roast their
fish and about five or six of their
home-made fire hearths can be
seen, This is a suitable place to
roast the fish but on the. other
hand the boys should “throw
ashes and bits of wood into the
sea when they have completed.

When roasting fish, some boys
leave the fires and walk away to
see if they can get more fish
This is also a dangerous practice.

ISHERMEN and jish vendors
are making the beach behind
the Market a dumping ground for
stale fish, fish heads and the in-
testines of fish.'This should not
be done because when this refuse
is beginning to decay it not only
attracts flies but gives off a bad
odour.

Other people throwing similar
refuse in the dust bins at Speights-
town are causing an annoyance to
residents Unfortunately these
residents suffer worse because
their dust bins are only cleaned
once a week.

Many flying fish were seen on
the beach behind the market yes-
terday morning but fishermen stil!
deny throwing fish back into the
sea unless they are unfit for human
consumption.
eS FISH were plentiful in

both Bridgetown and Speights-
town on Tuesday night. In Bridge-
town around 4.00 p.m. they were
selling three cents each but
an hour later they were offered
at a cent less.

During the night they were sell-
ing at a cent each and later at six
for ten cents.

‘HE 125TH ANNIVERSARY of

the Mount Tabor Church will
take place at 7.45 tonight. The
Police Band, under Captain
Raison will be in attendance.

As part of their regular fort-
nightly programme, the Police
Band will be giving a Concert at
the Hastings Rocks tomorrow
night.

tition.
AARLY ALL the Secondary
Schools are busy preparing
their exhibits for the Empire Week
Exhibition which will open on
May 24 at Combermere School
Hall, The exhibits will be for-
warded to the Combermere School
on Saturday and afterwards they
will be arranged in the Hall.

At last year’s Exhibition 21
schools throughout the island com-
peted and it was of a high stand-
ard. Some beautiful designs and
unique water colours were dis-
played and this created much in-
terest among spectators. The
School Hall was gaily decorated
with flags and bunting and the
Exhibition was opened by the then
Acting Governor, Mr. H.
Perowne.

First Prize in the Senior Divis-
ion went to St. Michael’s Schoo!
with an exhibit depicting “Indus-
tries of the West Indies” while
Queen’s College carried off first
prize in the Junior Division.

It is expected that the standard
of the forthcoming exhibition will
even be higher.
rt DEAD BODY of 87-year-

old Joseph Doughty of Bel
Air, St. Philip, was found along
Beachy Head Road in the same
parish at about 5.30 a.m. yester-
day. It was removed to the mor-
tuary at District “C’” Police Sta-
tion where a post mortem exam-
ination was later performed.

FTHE BICYCLE reported missing
by Louis Walrond of Tudor
Bridge was found on Chapel Lane,

Vestryman
Taxation

KENNETH CARLTON



Withdraws
Law Suit

O’NEALE, a Vestryman of St.

Lucy, filed a Court of Common Pleas petition objecting
the exemption of some people (including the Assessor)

from Ownership Tax.

He did not seek legal advice, and

the petition was drawn up hopelessly wrong. So he took

the advice of His Honour

the Chief Judge, Sir Allan

Collymore, in that Court yesterday, and withdrew the

petition.





Frerich Pictures
At Wakefield

Tomorrow

M. Jacques Leguebe, French
Consul in the West Indies was a
recent arrival here and is a guest
at the Ocean View Hotel.

In an interview with the Advo-
cate, M. Leguebe said that he is
very interested in improving the
relations between French speaking
people and the British in the Brit-
ish West Indies. '

To this end he has formed a
Society in Trinidad where his
Headquarters are located and he
has had a part of his home so fitted
that he has been able to exhibit
examples of French culture, paint-
ings, literature and poetry.

Tomorrow at “Wakefield”, Brit-
ish Council Centre, M. Leguebe
will exhibit a collection of repro-
ductions of French paintings and
French documentary films. The
pictures will be exhibited all day
and the films at 5.00 p.m. They
will be:—

VAN GOGH — his life as illus-
trated in his paintings, with
commentary in French.

COMBOURG CASTLE—the home
which so much influenced Cha-
teaubriand with commentary in
English in the form of extracts
from his “Memoirs d’outre
Tombe.”

His Excellency the Governor
and Mrs. Savage have consented
to be present for the film show at
5.00 p.m.

Admission is free.



Traffic Blocked

About midway on the southern
half of the wharf surrounding the
outer basin of the Careenage, a
big heap of stones, marl and sand
ewe the path of traffic yester-

ay.

This stuff was dug out from the
wharf during the past two days
for the purpose of laying down tie
rods to the new piles that were
being driven down and to give
room for new concrete.

Many pedestrians who did not
know of this, were suddenly dis-
appointed on finding their way
blocked, and had to turn back and
make their way up or down the
wharf by way of the Pier Head.

Some, however, were not pre-
pared to turn back and climbed
over the heap of stuff. Others
were more risky. They treaded
their way across the narrow piles
and looked as though they would
have fallen into the sea at any
moment.

Donkey carts and hand carts
were completely denied of the use
of this road, because added to the
hindrance of the heap of stuff, was
the machinery used in driving the
piles which in itself was a block
to traffic.



Flower Pot Factory
Lacks Equipment

With the necessary modern
equipment at Lancaster Flour-
Pot Factory, this colony could
supply Trinidad where there is‘
a ready market, with 100,000 or
even 250,000 flour pots per year,
the “Advocate” was told yester-

ay.

The informant said that at pres-

ent term potters were being em-
ployed at Lancaster making
flower pots for local firms. The
local demand could easily be met
but no attempt could be made to
undertake the making of large
quantities for overseas markets,
since with the present equip-
ent no great demand could be
et.
The present work was just an
effort to keep the industry alive,
for on it many people still depend-
ed for a living.

Schooner Unloads

Schooner “Princess Louise”
began yesterday to unload its
eargo of fresh fruit, copra, fire-
wood and charcoal with which it
arrived from St. Lucia.

The vessel’s skipper, Captain
Mitchell, told the “Advocate” yes-
terday that they met fine weather
throughout the whole voyage
which lasted three days.



~~ ——-e He will have to pay costs.

The Vestry was represented by
Mr, E. K. Walcott K.C. instructed
by Messrs Yearwood and Boyce.
Mr. W. W. Reece K.C. represented
the Assessor of the parish, Fitz
Reginald Greaves. Mr. Reece was
also instructed by Messrs Year-
wood and Boyce.

The Chief Judge remarked
on the attitude of many Bar-
bi -ians who “think themselves
experts in every walk of life.”
He told O'Neale that he was
far from being an accomplished
lawyer.

Mr. Walcott said he had no de-
sire to prevent
from bringing his case before the
Court. There were, however, cer-
tain difficulties which any lawyer
on the other side would find him-
self in,

After citing section 60 of, the
Vestries Act, 1911—5, Mr. Wal-
cott said that such a_ petition
must be addressed to someone.
One could not just petition
the Registrar, and in any case
O’Neale had not even petitioned
the Registrar, nor had he drawn
up the petition in a way to
indicate to the offending party
what they had to meet.

Wandered
The petitioner had simply
lodged the petition with the
Registrar, and in drawing up

what he called a pefition, had
wandered to and fro, whereas he
should have told them exactly
what he was complaining of. In
addition there were paragraphs
which were utterly irrelevant to
the whole matter.

If he wanted to complain about
the assessor, he had a right to
complain to the Vestry asking
that he be dismissed. It was
obvious that the petition was
directed personally more against
the assessor than against the
rates. He did not want it to be
said, Mr. Walcott added, that he
had sat in his chair without draw-
ing to the attention of the Court,
that that document, which was a
letter rather than a petition, was
out of order.

Mr. Reece also took objection
to the petition. He cited the
Vestries Act at Sections 53—1,
58—2 and 60, and submitted that
the petitioner should have set out
particulars, making objection to
a particular rate laid against any
person. He could not just gen-
erally object to the rates.

All Wrong

The procedure that the petit-
joner had adopted was all wrong.
It had never been done in that
way in any case with which he
had been connected, Mr. Reece
said.

He agreed with what Mr. Wal-
cott had said ‘that the letter or
pefition, was more aimed at the
assessor than the Vestry.

The Chief Judge said that no
one wanted to hamper the petit-
foner, but the Court found itself
in a difficult position.

After it was decided that the
petition could not be amended at
that stage, Mr. Walcott suggested
that the petitioner should be
allowed to explain for himself.

Before the petiticner spoke,
the Chief Judge told him that his
method of procedure had been
wrong in many respects. No one
want:d to hamper him in bring-
ing the petition before the Court,
but a lot of the document was
simply airing vestry squabbles
instead of being a petition in
proper form.

Petitioner then said that he
had brought his petition as regards
exemptions from ownership tax
due to the Vestry on behalf of
the omission of the assessor
himself and certain relatives of
his (petitioner’s).

; Irreguiarities

“On the face of it,” said the
Chief Judge to the petitioner, “it
would appear that there are cer-
tain irregularities which should
be corrected, if what you say has
any substance. But you cannot
‘just come and throw mud here
and there without setting real
grounds to your petition. What
you are saying, as far as I can
see, is that the assessor did not
rate himself and certain other
people.”

Both counsels agreed that the
petitioner had failed to indicate

to their clients what they ition

to rebutt, and that the petitio
was hopelessly out of order.

The Chief Judge then suggested
to the petitioner that the best
course for him to take would be

, fo ask leave to withdraw his

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

B. Honduras
Reduces
Unemployment

The Government of British
Honduras is embarking on
for road work in order to reduce
unemployment which is a_ big
= there, Mr. E. P. Bradley,

bour Officer of that country told
the “Advocate” yesterday.

Mr. Bradley is now attending
the Labour Officers’ Conference at
Hastings House. He arrived on
Monday evening by B.W.1LA. via
Jamaica and is staying at the
Hastings Hotel.

He said that roads were vitally
necessary for opening up the
country and added that from a
long-term view point, there were
various development schemes
under consideration which would
remove the unemployment prob-
lem entirely if they materialized.

Unemployment in British Gui-
ana was largely brought about
by the severe drought of 1949
which threw many small planters
in the wage earning field.

In addition to work on the con-
struction of the roads, he said that
several relief works had been in
force since August last year.

Expansion had already begun in
the citrus industry and prepara-
tions of fields for the Lacatan
banana

Fields were being prepared for

the planting of food crops and Hill

these would be reaped in October.
Timber is the chief product and
both the mahogany and chicle in-
dustries are at a low ebb due to
the falling off of demands in the
American market. S

On the other hand, Mr. Bradley
said that the pine industry was
proceeding at a rapid we in sup-
plying lumber for the West Indian
markets.

Grenada Is
Fortunate

The unemployment problem in
Grenada at the moment is not a
very acute one, Mr. Gordon Da
Breo, the colony’s Acting Labour
Officer, told the “Advocate” yes-
terday.

Mr. Da Breo is here for the
Labour Officers’ Conference and is
Staying at the Hastings Hotel.

He said that Grenada is in a
fortunate position at present in
that the prices for their main
product cocoa, are somewhat
higher than previous years. On
account of that, the estate owners
are now in the process of rehabili-
tating their estates and it is pos-
sible for every agricultural labour-
er who wishes to work to find
employment at the present time.

Mr. Da Breo returned to Grenada
two months ago after spending 18
months’ leave in the United King-
dom. During that time, he quali-
fied as a Barrister-at-Law and also
attended the Colonial Service
Training Course for Labour Offi-
cers,

Well Nearly Filled

About 12 feet of the 16-foot
well which was discovered in one
of the “gaps” of the Garden Land,
Country Road, was filled up yes-
férday with large stones. The
well was discovered when a
wheel of a hearse which was con-
veying a corpse along the “gap”
sank through the foot-and-a-half
layer of earth which covered the
well for many years.

An old unused main pipe runs
over the well and residents think
that it was used in days of wind
mills,

One house is only about two
yards from the well and although
the well was temporarily covered
by pieces of iron when it was dis-
covered, all mothers kept their
children close until it was filled.

Strangers passing along the
“gap” are warned by residents
to be careful lest they should fall
into any other unknown well.

Case Struck Out

A case brought by Edgar
Phillips of Green Hill, St. Mich-
ael, against his brother Samuel
Phillips, claiming partnership in
a house situated on Green Hill,
was struck out yesterday by Mr.
Justice J. W. B. Chenery in the
Court of Original Jurisdiction.
The case was struck out because
that Court had no Jurisdiction
over such a matter as the value of
the house was more than £50.

Twenty-six-year-old Edgar and
23-year-old Samuel built a house
between them, the one putting
$168 and the other $162. Edgar

Inquiry

After a short deliberation a 9-
man jury decided that Lionel
Marshall of Two Mile Hill came to
his death as a result of the acci-
dent which took place on I'wo
Mile Hill when an inquiry which
was held by Mr. A. J. H. Hanschell,
Coroner of District “A” was con-
cluded yesterday.

Lionel Marshall wag ,admitted to
the General Hospital about 12.40
a.m, on Monday, May 8 and died
about 1.30 a.m. after an accident
on Two Mile Hill between the mo-
tor car M—2385, owned and driven
by Courtney Arthur of Haggatts

owned by Guy Payne and driven

On Patrol Duty

P.C. 199 William Austin said on
May 8 about 12.30 a.m., he was
on patrol duty along Government
Hill with P.C. Warner. He heard
shouts of stop there! stop there!
stop there! and he ran in the di-
rection where they came from. He
saw the motor car M—2385 com-
ing towards him on the left side
of the road with about four per-
sons running after it,

The car was approaghing slowly
and before he asked the driver
what had happened the people
said that it was an accident. He
asked the driver what had hap-
pened and he said “My friend
“Cocker” got tight and I am taking
him home but a lorry was parked
up the road and I collided with it.
He got a cut and I am taking him
to the Hospital.”

Test Brakes

He told Warner to accompany
them to the hospital so that the
brakes could be tested. He saw a
man who was described as
“Cocker” sitting on the left of the
driver and his head was over the
back rest of the car.

He saw the lorry M. 1848 parked
on the left side of Two Mile Hill
Road facing west with about 12
persons standing on the platform.

The driver of the lorry showed
him the right rear corner of the
platform which was disconnected.
On measuring the width of the
road he found it was 22 feet and
the width of the lorry was six feet,
seven inches, The left fronf wheel
of the lorry was three feet,
one and a half inches from
the south side. The rear light of
the lorry was burning. He found
a piece of a door knob at the spot
where the lorry was parked and
gave it to Sergeant Bancroft.

Another Policeman

P.c. 139 Ivan Warner said on
May 8 about 12.30 a.m. he was on
duty at Government Hill with
Austin when he heard shouts of,
“Stop! Stop!” coming from the di-
rection of Two Mile Hill. He went
and saw the motor car M—2385
proceeding down Government Hiil
in the direction of Two Mile Hill
driven by Courtney Arthur, The
car was travelling slowly and on
inquiring what had happened
Arthur told him that he was going
down Two Mile Hill and collided
with a lorry. The man next to
him in the front seat had got hurt,
he said and he was taking him to
the General Hospital.

He (Warner) got into the car,
sat down in the back seat, and
was taken to the hospital. In the
car was Arthur who was driving;
next to him was Marshall, and in
the back seat a man named Jor-
dan. Marshall was bleeding from
the nose and had a deep dent in

On the way to the hospital he
asked Arthur how the accident
happened. Arthur said that while
coming down Two Mile Hill about
100 yards from Marshall's home
he saw a lorry which was parked
on the Jeft side of the road with-
out lights and he collided with it.
He did not collide head-on, but in
taking off, the left side of the car
where Marshall was sitting col-
lided with the lorry. He did not
see the lorry until he was close
upon it.

Jordan said that while Arthur
was driving to Chapel Gap en
Haggatt Hall Cross Road the car
was travelling about 25 to 30
miles per hour and not 25 to 35

reds and 12 of the 2d blues—are
known to exist. All trace of the
thousand issued in 1847 were lost,
and collectors were unaware of
their existence till two decades
later.

They were the first stamps of
Mauritius, which was the first
British colony to issue stamps and,
in fact, only the fifth country in
the world to do sc. The design of
the Queen’s head was similar to
that used by Great Britain.

The story of how Mr, J. Bar-
nard, a half-blind watchmaker of
Port Louis, made a mistake in the
engraving of the stamps—by put-
ting ‘Post Office’ instead of ‘Post
Paid’—is probably well known to
Mauritians. The Postmaster of
Mauritius, apparently, only told
Barnard verbally what wording
should appear on the stamps. The
watchmaker remembered what he
should engrave on the right-hand
side (Mauritius), but forgot the
wording for the left-hand side, So
he went to ask the Postmaster. As
he was approaching the Post Office
he looked up and saw the sign
painted on the outside. This
seemed to jog his memory and he
went -back and engraved ‘Post
Office’. At least that is the story.

Schoolboy

Five of the Post Office Mauri-
tius to be shown at Grosvenor
House belong to a European phila-
telist who uses the nom-de-plume
Sextus Afranius. Two specimens,
one of each value, are used to-
gether on a letter addressed to a
Bordeaux firm of wine merchants.
They were discovered by a French
schoolboy.

Neither of the two specimens
from the Royal collection have
been seen by the public since they
were bought by King George V.
He paid £1,450 for the twopenny
one (unused) in 1904, It was dis-
covered by a certain official of the
Civil Service Commission in a
scarcely remembered six-penny
pocket book which he had used
as a stamp album when a school-
boy.

The finest existing ‘Post Office’
piece is an envelope bearing two
ld, stamps which is being dis-
played at the Exhibition by Mrs.
John D. Dale, of New York, She
inherited the collection from her
father, Alfred F. Lichtenstein,
who died in 1947, This letter was
found in an Indian bazaar 53 years
ago and was bought for £50
Later it changed hands for £1,800.
Lichtenstein valued it at £11,000
and was said to have refused
£30,000 when collectors later
offered to buy it.

Exhibits from 185 British and
167 overseas philatelists are on
view at Grosvenor House. These
include the King’s stamps and the
priceless G.P.O. collection. The
public and the philatelist will see
some of the world’s most interest-
ing and rare stamp collections
valued at over £2,500,000,

ernor of Barbados, is now Gov-
ernor of Mauritius.

they were drinking on the lorry.
The head and rear lights were
burning and it was parked on the
spot for about ten minutes. During
that time he felt a blow as if
something had struck the lorry
from behind, When he inspected
the lorry the back beam was
broken and he noticed that some

Sound Batting
Dewes got into his stride by off-
driving Jones for fours, and forty
went up in just over 50 minutes
before the slow left-hander Valen-

tine came on in place of Jones.
Next over Ramadhin replaced
Johnson. Sheppard cut Ramad-'
hin for 4 and Dewes hit him hard
to the leg boundary. Dewes com-
pleted 52 in 85 minutes by hitting
Ramadhin for another leg four,
and the hundred’ appeared in 95
minutes, though the bowling was
again changed to bring on Wil-
liams and Johnson.

Sheppard had begun to pro-
gress more rapidly with well-
timed cuts and occasional drives
and he reached 50 in an hour and
55 minutes. At lunch, with 129
on the board, neither batsman had
made a serious mistake. -°

on the opening day of the match
the opening pair exceeded the

Grant’s 1933 side.

On a pitch which gave the
bowlers no help the batsmen were
masters from the start and al-
though Goddard tried eight
bowlers, Dewes and Sheppard
always seemed at ease.

Dewes unusually free style hit

hard all round the wicket and he
completed 100 out of 167 in two

and a half hours. Sheppard less
venturesome took — three hours

THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1956 “{



Draws With
Empire

Notre Dame and Empire battled
to a 1—l draw when they met
at second division football at
Queen's Park yesterday.

This match was to. decide
whether Empire would challenge
Notre Dame for the second divis-
ion cup and the decision is, that
Notre Dame, with still another
match to play, are already win-
ners of the second division trophy.

Babb, inside right for Empire,
scored the first goal of the
evening for his team. Empire

kept this lead until late in the
game when they fouled in the
penalty area, conceding a penalty
to Notre Dame. Headley of Notre:
Dame took the kick and placed
it well into the nets. ©

Empire’s goal was shot abou‘
three minutes after play began
Babb’s display in_ shooting
this goal was fine, After receiv-
ing a through pass from midfield, |
he ran down alone, beating the
Notre Dame's backs, and finally





This half ended with the score
at 1—0 in favour of Empire.

It was not until about 15 min-
utes before end of play that Notre
Dame equalised. When this was
accomplished, both teams began
to press for supremacy. The goal-
keeping was to a good standard
and what would have been goals
for both Notre Dame and Empire

were turned into some clever
saves.
' The teams were :-
Notre Dame— Wilkinson,
Straughn, Browne, Daniel, Rob-

erts, Davis, Headley, Daniel, Gill,
Resf, Daniel.

Empire— Archer, St. John,
Jordan, Wickham, Rynoe, Clarke,
Rarrew, Morris, Babb, McCollin,

BU.OC. placed at Ihe dispos-
al ul (he Uovemment. free cf
charie. the services of Dr. Serm
lo make a very thorough survey
of Ihe underground water re-
source* of Ihe Island and his
report has been and (it tt be-
lieved) will continue to be of
enormous value to this Colony.
In particular. B.U.O.C. lo-
cated and drilled the first Bel .
Well which proved the area
that to-day provides the
greater part of the Island's
water supply This was don?
without charge to Govern-
ment.
B.U.O.C. has long establish-
ed in Barbados and forms an
Integral part of the Island's
economy. Both BU.OC and
Its associates T.L.L. are fully
cognisant of the economic
standards and conditions in
the West Indies and conform
to the accepted standards of
conducting relations with la-
bour.
In the view of B.UOC, it
would be quite imp:
to assess in terms of money
tin- value of the leases which
have been statutorily deter-
mined, the exploration work
which has already been done,
the value of recoverable cas-
ing In the wells, the supply of
a substantial quantity of gas
to Barbados from Well No. 10
for domestf<- and industrial
purposes, and the potential
value / Well No. 20 as a
similar source of gas.
In view of B.U.O.C. the
most practical means of satis-
fying these claims Is by the
grant of an exclusive prospect-
ing license over the whole
Island for a period of four
years so us to bring to a final
conclusion the work and en-
deavour contributed by
B.U.O.C. to the exploration for
<.il in Barbados.
Fhnll. if should be men-
tioned that during; the war
T.L.L., which will be associat-
ed with B.U.O.C in deep
drilling in Barbados, in order
to he*p the war effort and ob-
tain maximum production,
were) required by the Allied
tlovernments unduly to over-
produce their oil Jeases in
Trinidad. T I..1-. also increas-
ed its refinery facilile* to
meet this increased production
during tho war yearr The net
result is that to-day T.L.L.,
with Increased refinery capa-
city, has Inadequate supplies
of crude oil. By reason of the
dollar situation it was forced
to dispose of Its assets In Ven-
ezuela, and for the same rea-
son Is unable for purposes of
oil production to enter Canado
and the U.S.A. It has recently
drlled in the Buhamas and
British Guiana without suc-
cess. Apart from Trinidad,
Barbados therefore offers the
only possible outlet in T.L.L. to
increase Its crude output In the
Brilsh Empire. On the other
hand a competing U.S.A. Com-
pnnv is not fettered by dollar
restrictions and is free to dnll
In the areas not open to
TLL."
Offered 55 Per Cent
The Governor In Executive
Committee, after giving most|
rarcfu' consideration to the claim;
of the B.UOC. and the argu-
ments adduced in support of it
decided that B.U.O.C. and their
associates, Trinidad leaseholds.
should be offered 53 per cent of
the Island with the right to lease
half this area for 21 years re-
newable for a further 21 ye;irs,
if the lessee so wished. MSB fur-
ther that they should be given
first choice of the four sub-di-
vlsions into which It was pro-
posed lo divide the Island for
prospecting purposes. In addi-
tion, they should be granted 50
per cent of certain of the terri-
torial waters with similar rights
as regards leasing. The balance
of the area, namely 45 per cent

Walk Out
The representatives of B.U.O.C./
Trinidad Leasehold* stated that
the offer was quite unacceptable
to them and after a brief refer-
ence by their spokesman to their
competitors, they rose abruptly
and immediately walked out of
the room without further com-

Trinidad Leaseholds who had
come to the Island fOr negotiations
returned by air to Trinidad the

Faced with this walk-out by

the Government had to decide on
the next step and reached the con-

to continue discussions with the
r.ulf Oil Corporation on the basis
of a prospecting license over half
the Island, 'caving the remaining
half as a Crown reserve pending
further developments.
Nine Days Delay
Accordingly negotiations were
continued with the Gulf Oil Cor-

despatched by air mail to New

to Inordinate delays In the post,
it was not received until the 15th
nf May, nine dayat later. The
Gulf Corporation dealt with the
matter expeditiously and the fol-
lowing day telegraphed their ap-
proval and on the 17th of May the
license was signed at Government
House.
The Agreement
The main points of the agree-
ment are as follows: .
(1) A prospecting license for 4

ishesSt. Lucy, St. Peter,
St. Andrew (excluding ex-
isting natural gas wells), St.

(3' The light to lease 50% of
the prospecting area in one
or tnore lots for 21 years
renewable for a further 21

(4) The royalty to be 12% for
21 years and thereafter at
a rate uol exceeding
16 f/f*j if the Governor-
in-Executive Committee so
prescribe. In addltl
company will pay a rental

CREDIT TO AtGENTlNA
MAY MATERIALISE
LONDON, May 16.
London financial experts be-
lieve to-day that the question of
a British credit to Argentina was
still a possibility.
This was their reaction to last
night's announcement in Ruvni
Aires that the Financial Commit-
tee of the Anglo-Argentine Trade
Negotiations would meet again;
this week, after the negotiations
had been in abeyance for some'
time.
They expressed dissent In re- |
cent Press reporta that the Brit-
ish Government had decided
against a credit, saying that the
decision would depend on the
negotiations as a whole.
In their opinion the British
negotiators would hardly take a
rigid line one way or the other
on one item In the negotiation
divorced from all the others.
Among British officials, those
concerned with the wider as-
pects of an Anglo-Argentine
Agreement were most friendly to
the idea of a credit which is war-
ranted by the agreement as o
whole.
It was thought thst the amount
rather than the principle of
credit might be the stumbllnr
block.

PAGE FOUR BARBADOS ADVOCATE TIIVRSDW. MW IS 130 t. *" BARBADOS ADVOGUTE I'oli.iral XfHslnnii II. W J. ISro.w. I liis Morrison Mausoleum Thursday. May 18. MM Health Or llisiasr V THE MOST depressing document to reach this newspaper for many months is entitled "Notes based on Informal Conference of Government Architects and Town Planning Officers. Barbados. February 1950." The architects and town planning officers decide that it is not easy to see tow the situation can be swiftly altered with regard to houses, in the British West Indies, and then state the "problem is not what form of housing can be made to pay for itself; bin to decide (a) how much the community can afford to "lose" on the improvement of housing; and how to employ that sum so that the greatest improvement is effected for a given expenditure of public funds." There are a few more notes on Housing mainly pre-occupii'd with Housing Authorities and comments on the relative failure of local Governments to have achieved much in the way of house building to date. One suggestion is worthy of special attention because it contains, however diffidently, the germ of hope for houses. "In most territories," it is noted, "there are widely distributed private funds available for house construction and a tradition of self help. It is desirable that housing programmes should to the greatest possible extent mobilise and canalise these funds". Now these words are by far more forward looking and more progressive than an Oriental resignation to fate or a feeble answer to the question "how much can the community afford to lose on housing?" The real question that must be answered is how much will the community gain by the improvement of housing. "Expenditure on housing" to quote a textbook on Social Administration, "has been productive of good. It removes many thousands of our fellow citizens from environments which are productive of evil to environments which elevate. It is enabling the nation to rear better prospective citizens with less probability of their being a charge upon the local and national And expenditure on housing diminishes expenditure on preventive medicine, public assistance, mental deficiency and all the other evils which result from bad housing conditions. Housing cannot be written off as a very expensive luxury which Barbados cannot afford. Bad housing is at the root of all our troubles and at the root springs health or disease. Comparisons with costs in Great Britain are dangerous but it is worth noting that the annual commitments of the Exchequer under all housing schemes in Great Britain and Wales from the end of the Great War 1914—18 to the end of March 1938 are approximately £15,400,000 while the corresponding commitments of local authorities are about £3.500,000. This vast expenditure on houses represents an increase of three and one half million houses in England and Wales during that period. It is worth noting in passing that of this number over one million were built by local authorities and two and a half million by private enterprise. i Although this expenditure is impossible in the British West Indies (unless Great Britain at this late hour, takes a leaf from the United States' book and refunds to the British West Indies the revenue which the United Kingdom has gained annually from the duty on West Indian rum entering that country) it is also unnecessary. Because the West Indian needs are so much less both in quantity and quality of houses. The problem facing the British West Indies is how to get down the inflated cost of house building. Two pointers come from the United Kingdom. Bournville as an example of social experiment and Port Sunlight as an expression of welfare work were experiments carried out by employers of labour in providing houses for the working classes. The other pointer is the Housing Act of 1936 which gives powers, facilities and assistance to bodies of persons and private individuals who are interested in providing or desirous of providing houses for the working classes. This act is in marked contrast to Barbados where in recent years an importer of stone cutting machinery was heavily taxed. The problem of houses in Barbados is the problem of cutting the cost to suit the problem, and of bringing down the cost *>f all houses in the community. It cannot b n tackled by resignation or depression.

WORLD COPRIC.HT RESERVED —L.E.H. The Lawyers Are Leaving Westminster WHAT happens to the defeated candidate for Parliament* 1 How does he view his failure, and how do his ambitions stand for the future? The Temple, London, where barristers carry on their practices. gives an unexpected answer to these questions. Its few acres hold more also-rans of the last election Tories, Socialists and Liberals—than any other area a thousand times its size. And from its crooked lanes. Its squares and gardens rises with fervency a hosanna of thanksgiving for the bleating of defeat, and the sound of scores of breasts being beaten as their owners promise themselves never, never again to try to win their case before the electorate. When a defeated barrister candidate meets an MP colleague, his greeting is more than usually cheerful. The MP knows this means that the other Is thinking. "There but for the marvellous good sense of my constituency go I", and the member grinds his teeth with rage BOTH the rage of the victors and the pleasure of the vanquished flow from the same realisation: that for barristers promoted to Westminster the hustings have changed into a scaffold, littered with the dead and dying corpses of once prosperous practices. Political perfermem has meant professional disaster. A man simply cannot combine membership of the 1050 Parliament with an active practice In the courts. There were a few barristers of foresight who realised that tins situation might arise, and never, in consequence, stood at the election. One of them is Mr. Christopher Shawcross, K.C., brother of Sir Hartley, and Socialist member in the last Parliament for Widnes, He announced In advance that his professional commitments prevented him from seeking re-election. For the majority the temptation of politics was too much. They advanced nobly to the fray, and those who gained their objective now have the alternative f resigning, or not standing for re-election, ns Mr. John Maude, K.C..

They expressed dissent In re| cent Press reporta that the British Government had decided against a c r e dit saying that the decision would depend on the negotiations as a whole. In their opinion the British negotiators would hardly take a rigid line one way or the other on one item In the negotiation divorced from all the others. Among British officials, those concerned with the wider aspects of an Anglo-Argentine Agreement were most friendly to the idea of a credit which is warranted by the agreement as o whole.
