Princess Will
Marry Again —

}
SAN FRANCISCO, May 18.

Nineteen-year-old Princess Fat-|
hia of Egypt*said to-day she and
her commoner husband, Riad
Ghali, would be remarried in a
Moslem ceremony “within a
couple of days.”

Her mother, Queen Nazli, said
she meant “as soon as possible—
maybe this week, maybe next |

| week.” }

Princess Fathia was disowned
by King Farouk, her brother, after
marrying Ghali in a secrei civil

;eeremony on April 25,

She and her husband, a Coptic
Christian and Queen Nazli’s form-
er private secretary, have lived
apart since the ceremony, but
after the Moslem marriage, “they
will slip away on their honey-
moon,” the Queen said.

“Do not disturb” signs hung

\

; ;over the doors of their separate

hotel suites to-day as they made
telephone arrangements for their
honeymoon “probably in Hawaii.”

Under Moslem law any couple|
can marry simply by exchanging
vows but “Fathia wants a real
ceremony with a Moslem priest
and a few friends present,” the
Queen said.

She says they will be married
only once and she wants to re-
member it. She will wear a white
French gown — she looks very
iovely in white.

Princess Fathia said she had no
fear of infuriating King Farouk
any more. “He can punish us no
further,” she said. But she was
worried about “my beloved”.

I don’t know what the King will
do to him in Egypt, the King can
do anything. But please let us not
even think about it.

Ghali, whose diplornatic pass-
port has been withdrawn by the
Egyptian Government, has been
asked to leave the United States
by May 25. But Mr. Bruce ‘Bar-
ber, the Immigration Commis-
sioner in San Francisco, hinted to-
day he might be given more time if
he wanted it.

General Assembly to recommend
members that “when they are

“IT want to know what is hap-

result of the decreased exports

tou me

Though successive Chancellors
of the Exchequer have turned a
deaf ear to constant appeals for
the reduction of rum duty, Mr.
Smithers is convinced that the
British Treasury is losing money
while “a valuable West Indies
Industry is prejudiced”,

At 34 to 37 shillings for a bot-
tle of which about three quarters
represent duty, rum is in the
luxury class of drink.



Smithers declares rum is a
healthy drink which the British
public want, but at present is

“priced out of the pocket of the
ordinary working class family ia

other friends were at the airport
to see him off.

Here For Two Weeks

M®.: nd Mrs, C. Lister Stoute

errived by B.W.LA. on
Wednesday from Trinigad to spend
two weeks’ holiday in Barbados.
Mr, Stoute is a Barbadian and this
is his first holiday home in many
years, and they are staying at
Cacrabank, Mr. Stoute «is a
surveyor With Apex Oilfields in
South Trinidad.

Best in the Leewards

A® a result of political agitation

in the British Virgin Islands
a good road is under construction
in Roadtown, Tortola. A settion
from Government House to the
Treasury is already complete, and
by the way, recent visitors to
Tortola are very much impressed
with Mrs. Cruickshank’s decora-
tions at the house there. In fact
they say that Government House
in the Virgins is now the best
furnished in the Leewards.

Going Up
R, JOHN O'KEEFE was in
Barbados on a short visit
while he was fitted with a pair
of spectacles. He returned to St.
Lucia on Wednesday by B.W.LA.
where he is a ae assistant
with Holla.| a. Hannen and
Cubitts, Fenamaitiie
An Irishman, he has been in
S.. Lucia for one year and lives
over in Vigie. Buildings in Cas-

Staying At B.C. In

London
R. L. N. Blache-Fraser, Ac-
countant-General of Trinidad
arrived last week at Liverpool in
the French Line ship SS.
“Gascogne”. He is accompanied
by his wife and child. At pres-
ent Mr. Blache-Fraser is stay-
ing at the British Council] Resi-
dence in London. Next week he
goes to Henley-on-Thames to
attend a course at the Adminis-

trative Staff College.

Smoke Him Out

OMEWHERE in London some-

one is smoking a Jamaican
cigar to which they are zot en-
titled. It is unlikely, however,
they will ever be found out. The
cigar, together with three others,
was stolen from the Jamaican
stand at the B.LF, during the
evening of the first day. The
theft was tapered to the organ-
isers and Stalls are now
locked up at night so that no
further exhibits ‘disappear.’

n Long Leave

R. and Mrs. Lawrence Antro-

bus and their two children
arrived on Wednesda: Pasning by
B.W.LA. from Trinidad. Mr.
Antrobus, who is on three months’
long leave is with T.L.L. They
will be staying with Afrs. Antro-
bus’ parents in Bel itle for the
first couple of weeks of their
holiday and will then be moving
to the seaside.

Also returning with them were
Mrs. L. M. Jones, Mr. Antrobus’
sister and her two children who
have been staying with them in
Trinidad,

On Their Way
N their way to England on
the “Golfito” are Mrs, F. A.
Seaford and her daughter Peta.
Her husband is Cggsulting En-
gineer with Bookers, B.G. Also
on the “Goljjto” were Mr. and
Mrs. A. D. leoner and theiy
daughter as well as Mr. B. L.

Shaw, Chief Accountant for

Bookers. They were all staying
at Cacrabank intransit.
On Leave

Me. and Mrs. Lawrence D.

Cleare are on leave in

Barbados. Mr. Cleare is with
the Agricultural Department of
the British Guiana Government,
and they are staying at Cacrabank.

“She produced sounds like a dog

Bipstone. Striking an average,
she made it H, yet hesitated to
file an obvious W, H, or B under
H. Finding that the R file con-
tained letters about metal hinges
for almanacs, tarred string, pul-
leys and valve-grease, she re-
filed the applications under W,
struck another average, and re-
moved the whole contents of a

chosen a better place for his ex-

smell of restaurant food was too
much for him. He has now re-
moved himself to “a glass cage

“He may be starving,” said a
lion from the side of his mouth,
“but I’m not.” And he prepared
to deal with the matter when the

Quiz Kids

There is an organisation in
Sydney which welcomes the
opportunity of rescuing peo-
ple .who .are .faced .with
mathematical problems which
apparently defy splution.

{iT is called the Mathematica:
Problems Bureau.

A group of enthusiasts in the
Mathematical Association oi
N.S.W. formed the bureau in 1939.
Since then it has solved more
than 200 abstruse mathematical
problems from all over Australia,
and boasts that it has never been
stumped.

Some problems are solved in
an hour or two, Some take days,
but once these men get their teeth
into a mathematical enigma its
secrets are soon laid bare.

The bureau's director, Mr. R. J.
Gillings farms the problems out
to members according to the
field of mathematics in which
they specialise.

They make no charge for their
services, which are available to
everybody.

People from all walks of life
consult the bureaus Some ques-
tions are academic, some of t!
puzzle variety, some related té
work or business.

One man proposed to use an
old circular “kiln for mushroom-
growing. The kiln was 204 feet
in diameter and a chord 17 feet
long cut off a segment of it,

The mushroomer asked the
bureau to work out for him the
area of the segment so that he
would be sure of spreading the
correct amount of mushroom
spawn.

A different kind of problem
came from a tennis club that was
planning a mixed doubles tour-
nament with five men and five
women players. Each man was to
play with each woman, and
against each other man and
woman, only once.

The club wrote to the bureau
asking how many matches would
have to be played. The answer,
10, was sent to the secretary
before the day of the tourrfiment.

Cespite the fact that he repre

Mr. Chang suggested that a

This suggestion caused a debate

Seek To Reform

Coroner Courts

* LONDON,

One of the most controversial
groups in British public lite are
the 246 coroners holding office in
England ands Wales.

They are independent judicial
officers not answerable to any gov-
ernment department—and they
scidem hesitate to assert their in-
dependence.

In the House cf Commons re-
cently, Home Secretary James
Chuter Ede said their pow-
er “might advantageously be
considered” by Parliament. But
with the parliamentary calendar
crowded, he saw little chance of
action “on this difficult and con-
troversial question in the near
future.”

The office of coroner dates
from the 12th century. While
their powers have been steadily
whittled down through the cen-
turies, they still have rights de-
nied to any judge or magistrate.

They can exclude the press or
public from their courts, admit
hearsay evidence and allow ques-

necessary back-+tions based on suggestions of guilt

which would be inadmissible in
a judicial court, Thes can—and
often do—make disparaging re-
marks about people not present
in court.

Recent Flare Up ‘

The most recent flare-up was in
April when Col. Innes Ware, a
Yorkshire coroner, excluded the
Press from an inquest on a society
woman found dead in her home.
He explained that reporters were
barred because relatives were
more likely to speak ig when
the Press was not present.

Ware’s action was vigorously
protested in the Press and in Par-
liament. But the Home Secretary
could only tell the Commons that
the High Court confirmed in 1827
that a coroner had discretion in
common law to hold an inquest
in private for reasons which
appeared to him “necessary and
proper.”

In this case, however, the coro-
ner himself later apologized for
“trespassing on the prerogatives
and privileges of the Press.” 4

The fight to reform Coroners’
Courts has been going on for more
than 20 years. Last year the Brit-
ish Medical Association recom-
mended that coroners be required
to have medical as well as legal
qualification and be barred from
making adverse comments on the
conduct ef people mentioned at
inquests,

‘On the latter point, W. Bentley
Purchase, Honorary Secretary of
the Coroners’ Society, was-in full

eement.
ae They fly off the handle,” Pur-
chase explained, “What we need
is a school for coroners. Some
who are appointed (by county and
borough councils) have no idea of
what they ought to do.”

The B.N.A. also recommended
that suicide verdicts should be that
the dead person “died by his own
-hand” without the usual “unsound
mind” or “balance of mind dis-
turbed” addition.—(C.P.)

FRENCH COMMUNISTS

ROCK THE BOAT

By Michael Gunningham

LONDON.

French Communists celebrated
May ‘Day in Paris chiefly by

onstrating for M. Jolgot-

rie, the recently dismissed
High Commissioner for atomic
energy. This was no _ surprise.
The mixed regret felt in France
at the removal of so distinguish-
ed a scientist was obvious ma-
terial for propaganda. But M.
Bidault could hardly leave this
professed Communist in office
much longer.

One of the “peace” slogans of
the party’s congress at Genne-
villiers last month announced:
“A true internationalist is a man
who is ready to serve the Soviet
Union unreservedly, unhesitat-
ingly, unconditionally”. As it is
sometimes put, the Soviet Union
is the Communist’s patrie, France

merely his pays.

The wave of Communist vio-
lence and agitation has rocked
the French ship of state since

January. Under the twin ban-
ners of “peace” (meaning sup-
port for Moscow) and _ higher

wages (immediate bonus and a
minimum wage) the Party has
organised a violent campaign of
sabotage and strikes against Am-
erican military aid to France and
the sending of French arms to
Indo-China. (As I write, Mr.
Acheson who is now in London

for the Three Powers’ Confer-
ence, after prelimin: talks with
M. Schuman in Paris, has an-

nounced that the U.S. will sup-
ply France with aid for Indo-

China).
Violent

This campaign might have been
more successful if it had been
less violent—if, that is, the Com-
munists had not overplayed
their hand. The war in Indo-
China is not popular and there
are many people in France, be-
sides the Communists, who dis-
approve of the Vietnam regime
of Bao Dai. On the other hand,
some sections of the French
working class are still underpaid
and regard the Communists as
the only true “proletarian” par-
ty. In demanding higher wages

for them, now that there is a
return to collective bargaining
the C.G.T., the French Com-
munist Union, is supporting a
cause that has been recognised
by the Prime Minister down-
wards. Political strikes in France

it might be added, are no long-
er likely to succeed without the
impetus of a genuine _ social
grievance.

But riotous Communist tactics
against M. Bidault’s anti-sabo-
tage bill in Parliament las*
March, during which the Presi-
dent of the Assembly twice call-
ed in the Garde Republicaine to
restore order, and disturbances
such as the recent clash at Brest
between demonstrators and po-
lice have brought public resent-
ment upon the Party. The na-
tional strike movement has, for
the moment, been defeated, with
the unions unable to obtain more
from the employers than the

*5 per cent wage increase offered

at the outset, A little before
the Easter recess a number of
Deputies tabled a motion asking
the government to deal more
firmly with the Communist men-
ace to the national security, The
dismissal of M. Joliot-Curie is
one of the “firm” steps that M.
Bidault has since taken, And in
4 recent speech he told the
rench people that the law
would be sternly enforced against
those who were seeking to un-
dermine the French State.

The Communists, though the
largest party in the Assembly,
with 183 seats, have, in the opin-~
ion of most observers, no chance
of coming to power at present.
In the elections of 1946 they ob-
tained nearly 5% million votes
out of an electorate of 24 million.
This was due partly to their
distinguished record in the Re-
sistance, partly because they
were widely regarded as a pro-
gressive movement and _ partly
because their seeming protest
against “government” appeals to
Frenchmen’s innate individual-
ism. Since then, the Party's in-
fluence has declined. Is this the
reason why French Communists,
probably on orders from Moscow,
have turned to more violent and
revolutionary methods — behind
the peace dove of the convert
Picasso?

Shades of Traicho Kostov

The trial and subsequent hang-
ing of Traicho Kostov last De-
cember and the great purge of
the inner ranks of the Bulgarian
Communist party that followed it
left a large gap to be filled in the
party’s Central Committee. It
was agreed that a congress would
be held on May 9 to elect new
members and discuss party tac-
tics and organisation. Now the
Central Committee has announc-
ed that the Congress will be
postponed—until June 8. They
say this is because the prelim-
inary round of party meetings in
the provinces has not yet been
completed. But this sounds very
much like an excuse, The more
likely reason, I think, is that the
Bulgarian Communist party is
still split over the issue that sent
Kostov to the gallows. The real
crime of the former Deputy Pre-
mier was that he dared to oppose
the economic subjugation of his
country by Soviet Russia.

Church and State

Since taking office as Premier
last autumn, Herr Grotewohl has
managea to crush all political
opposition to his Government in
Eastern Germany. I don’t sup-
pose he has found this difficult
—as the “dictator” of a Commu-
nist-dominated regime. It is
well-known that the “German
Democratic Republic east of the
Elbe, which the Russians set up
in answer to the West German
Government at Bonn, is a Com-
munist puppet state ruled—as
such puppets mostly are—from
Moscow. (Only last week Otto
Grotewohl and his deputy, Wal-
ter Ulbricht, were summoned to
the Russian Capital, probably to
be briefed in the speeches they
have since made in Berlin on
“Liberation Day’ (May 8), the
anniversary of Hitler’s collapse.)
Communists have ways of deal-
ing with their political oppon-
ents. But they are not, always,
so successful in their treatment
of the Church. Herr Grotewohl is
discovering that it does not pay
to browbeat the Clergy of Eas-
tern Germany.

When, just over a fortnight ago,
Dr. Dibelius, the Evangelical
Bishop of Berlin, circulated a
Pastoral Letter protesting against

the spread of materialism and
anti-religious activities in the
Eastern Zone, the East German
Premier upbraided him for at-
tacking “the Constitution, the
Government and the Rephblic.”
This did not deter the worthy
Evangelis:. He wrote a letter to

Herr Grotewohl demanding a
guarantee of the Church’s free-
dom as laid down in the October
Constitution, and that anti- re-
ligious propaganda in _ schools
should cease. Cardinal Prey-
sing, the Roman Catholie Bishop
of Berlin, wrote in simi-
Jar terms to the Premier the
same week, What was Herr
Grotewohl to do, in the face of
such Clerical determination? To
everyone's surprise, he changed
front and promised to meet the
demands of the Protestant and
Catholic leaders. At the same
time, he gave a general assurance
that “the Churches can fulfil
their work on the basis of the
Constitution.”

The only alternative for the
East German Premier was to
have started a new “Kultur-
kampf”, that struggle of the State
to subject the Church which Bis-
marek waged in Germany and
finally lost in 1878. but which
the Communist Government won
last year in Czechoslovakia. Ob-
viously, however, Herr Grote-
wohl cannot think this a matter
of practical polities at present.
He may reflect on recent events
in Poland where strong Catholic
resistance made the Warsaw
Government decide to compro-
mise temporarily with the Bish-
ops. He may ask himself whether
German religious feeling would
he, less weak. So the “Ger-
man mocratic Government” is
being cautious in its policy to-
wards the Church—for the mo-
ment. But as soon as it feels its
position in Eastern Germany to
be stronger, we must expect a
change of tactics. Conciliatory
gestures from Otto Grotewohl
towards Bishops Preysing and
Dibelius may not, then, be so
forthcoming. ‘

Iron Curtain Club

An association of emigres,
called “The Iron Curtain Club”,
has just been formed in London.
It is composed of writers and
journalists exiled from countries
behind the iron curtain. The pur-
pose of this club is to achieve
a common understanding be-
tween members who hail from
states as widely differing in
eharacter and outlook as Latvia
and Hungary. One day, perhaps,
the Russian yoke will be over-
thrown. It is up to these “free”
journalists and writers to get
across to what are inherently
nationalistic peoples the idea of
a federation of Central and Eas-
tern Burope, the Baltic and the
Balkans, which enlightened emi-
gre leaders believe would be the
only safeguard for their countries
against a future aggressor.



New Beef Land

For Britain?
Secret Report By Experts

(By JOHN REDFERN)

A GREAT RANCHING ESTATE in Bechuanaland’s
Kalahari Desert will provide succulent steaks and joints
for the Sunday dinner in Britain, if the findings of experts
who have just surveyed the territory are accepted.

The official report on the empty,
unused Kalahari has gone to the
Colenial Development Corporation.
But it is a secret.

From the Bechuanaland Gov-
ernment secretary down, no one
dare say ¢ word.

The area earmarked for cattle
raising—50,000 square miles—-is
inhabited only by roving bush-
men, among whom a five-footer is
a tall man, and a few Europeans,
most of them in Government ser-
vice.

If the plans go through, in a
few years there will be Bechu-
analand beef on British tables
and less frorn the Argentine.
The planners are prepared to

treble the present beef production
of the Protectorate,

For that they need 750,000 cattle
in ranches each covering 640
square miles and holding 10,000
cattle.

Although this Kalahari is desert
on the maps it is not Beau Geste
country. Sweetgrass, excellent
food for African breeds, grows
five-feet high but is patchily dis-
tributed and needs nursing.

The rough tracks are too much
for ears. Lorries are essential.
The Bechuanaland police use
camels for the toughest part of
their bush beat of 275,000 square
miles.

The Kalahari is healthy, with
brilliant, mild winters. But rainfall

a
Oil

TWO MAJOR facts emerge from the
Government's long awaited announce-
ment on oil.

The first is that the Government of
Barbados have driven a hard bargain in
the interests of the people of Barbados.

The second is that if there is oil in Bar-
bados the Gulf Corporation will find it.

The first fact is obvious when it is
realised that under the terms of the pros-
pecting and concession licence the Gov-
ernment of Barbados retains rights over
three quarters of the island while obtain-
ing royalties of twelve and a half per cent
n all oil produced and rentals of one

dollar per year for every acre of land
under lease.





Furthermore after the comparatively
short period of 21 years the Government
of Barbados will have the right to increase
the royalty to 163 per cent.

There can be no doubt that these fav-
ourable terms are due in no small meas-
ure to the expert advice of the Albertan
Minister of Mines without whose assist-
ance the Government of Barbados would
have found it impossible to negotiate with
the competing oil Companies who wanted
to obtain rights for deep drilling in Bar-
bados.

Free of cost, to this island the Hon. N. E.
Tanner was loaned to Barbados by a
Province of Canada where the discovery
of oil has been hailed as fabulous and
where orderly exploitation of oil is in
marked contrast to the feverish inflation
which has in the past forced up costs of
living in so many other countries where
oil booms have occurred.

Writing of Alberta in Wednesday’s issue
of this newspaper the Toronto correspond-
ent of the greatest Conservative news-
paper organisation in the United Kingdom
wrote “The modern boom is not accom-
panied by the hysterical speculation which
followed the old gold rushes. It is a steady
growth, marked by the most restrained
and level headed investment in the history
of this great land of buried treasures.”

It is in this province of Alberta that
the Hon. N. E, Tanner is Minister of Mines.

Barbados can hardly ever have been
more fortunate in getting the services of
uch a man at no cost to the taxpayer of
this island. If there is oil in Barbados the
Gulf Corporation have promised to find it
and the activities of a company whose
operations are world wide leave no doubt
that the promise will be fulfilled.

The announcement that the Corporation
are contemplating an early start with geo-
physical operations (which include the
use of magnetometers on the ground and
in the air) is sign enough that so far as
the Gulf Corporation is concerned the
search for oil—which is said to have existed
in Barbados before it was discovered in the
United States—has begun, No one knows
whether there is oil in Barbados nor how
much oil will be produced, nor can anyone
forecast with certainty what changes will
result in the island, if oil is discovered.

Everyone is entitled to hope however,
that an island which imports 44 per cent
of its food from North America and which
finds it increasingly difficult to provide
economic employment for the heavy popu-
lation it must support will find oil in.suffi-
ciently large quantities to raise the mate-
rial standards of life throughout the com-
munity.
| In assessing the facts revealed by the
Government announcement that a pros-
pecting and concession licence has been
given to Gulf Oil Corporation, the import-
ant question to answer is “will Barbados
benefit most from the deal?”

On the facts, as announced, it is impos-
sible not to give the Government credit for
having driven a hard bargain in the inter-
_ ests of the people of the island. :

LONDON

May 24th is Empire Day. Fifty
years ago its founder, the Earl of
Meath, said the object of Empire
Day celebrations was “the out-
ward sign of an inner awakening
of the peoples who constitute the
British Empire to the serious
duties which lie at their door.”
He chose May 24th for these cele-
brations use it was Queen
Victoria’s birthday.

May 24th is also the anniversary
of the Linnean Society, and to
mark the occasion the Society will
make its annual award of the
Linnean Medal to an outstanding
naturalist. Their choice of re-
cipient could not have been more
appropriate for they have chosen
as this year’s medallist Mr. Henry
Nicholas Ridley, C.M.G., the, man
who founded the rubber industry
in Malaya.

Now in his 95th year, Mr.
Ridley is one of the last surviving
“Empire builders.” His “serious
duty” was plain to him when he
went to Singapore 62 years ago to
take over the position of Director
of the Botanical Gardens. He
saw what no other man had seen
— that this little-known colony
was a source of potential wealth
unrivalled by any other of our
possessions. Against great ad-
versity he founded the rubber in-
dustry which today earns more
dollars for’the Empire than any
other single industry in it.

But though rubber has earned
many fortunes for the men who
followed Mr. Ridley’s carly lead,
he himself is a man of modest
means, living quietly on the edge
of Kew Gardens, in London.

The story of his achievement is
all the more’ fascinating because
it is little known. It will not be
found in history books, nor among
the great success stories of the
last century. Yet it is a story
well worth telling.

Mr. Ridley was a young man of
32 when he arrived in Singapore.
He had heard of the attempts that
had already been made to grow
rubber trees in Asia. He knew,
for instance, that a number of
rubber seeds, sent from Kew, had
been planted in India, but had
perished during the cold season.
He knew too, that rubber plants,
also from Kew, had been planted
in Ceylon, but had been given up
as a commercial proposition.

He had heard of experiments
carried out on rubber trees in the
Singapore Botanical Gardens.
Twenty-two seedlings, a few from
the same batch that had been sent
to Kew from Brazil, had been
planted there. When Mr. Ridley
first saw them, they had multiplied.
There were now about a thousand
rubber trees in the Gardens, but
they were overgrown with second-
ary jungle. "

The trees were there, bursting
with latex, but nobody knew how
to get it out. Stripping the tree
of its bark, as they did in Brazil,
yielded a certain amount of rub-
ber, but it also killed the tree.
It didn’t need a botanist to tell
that this method was unsatisfac-
tory. nl

Between spells of watching a
troop of monkeys which had
settled in the Gardens—he once
witnessed the murder of the elder-
ly king of the troop by two young
monkeys—and observing for the
first time with human eyes the
behaviour of a colony of ants,
which made nests from leaves by
sewing them together with the

thread from their larvae, Mr. Rid- plants scattered all over the Japanese.

‘John Bull's Tummy, Shrinks

LONDON

Overseas tourists are tucking in
heartily now that Britain has be-
come an “eat-what-you-like”
nation, in the Restaurants at least.
But ten years of austerity has
shrivelled the tummy of John
Bull.

There were fears that the
natives would panic the rest-
aurants and hotels with demands
for “square meals” once the 70-
cent ceiling on meals was removed
to garner more tourist dollars.
These apprehensions have proved
groundless.

The well-upholstered bee f-
eaters of Merrie Englande are en-
titled to a full turn in their graves
—for their modern counterparts
are no “trenchermen”—even when
the victuals are there.

Ten years of meagre rations nas
killed the habit of heavy eating.
The British can no longer ply a
good knife and fork.

Even the “curiosity” rush which
followed the lifting of restrictions
on meals in catering establish-

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

They Called Him Mad

Hecause He Said Rubber Could Be Grown In Malaya

By RONALD BOXALL

MR. RIDLEY

ley concentrated on the problem
ot tapping the rubber trees.

When I spoke to him at his home
this week, he recalled those early
days. “I was popularly known as
‘Mad Ridley’ or ‘Rubber Ridley’
he said, “and one Governor, Sir
Frank Swettenham, actually repri-
manded me for wasting my time
on the plants.”

But he disregarded the scorn
and criticism of his superior Gov-
ernment officers, and after months
of. experimenting at last succeed-
ed in tapping a tree and extract-
ing latex. He was the first man
to discover that a rubber tree
could be tapped in a certain way
one day and that the wound would
heal and the tree could be tapped
again the next day—with even
better results. He invented the
herring-bone system of tapping,
which is still used today.

The trees had to be tapped early
in thé morning before the mois-
ture, which it had absorbed during
the night, evaporated in the heat
of the day. His native assistants
soon became expert tappers, and
one was even able to tap two hun-
dred trees in the hour between
dawn and the time the latex
ceased to flow.

At first he used cigarette tins
to collect the latex, and one cube
of rubber thus obtained was ex-
hibited in 1889 in Singapore—the
first sample of cultivated rubber
ever shown in public.

Later it occurred to him that
the rubber would dry better if it
were made into thin sheets. There
were no funds, available to buy
equipment so he used ordinary
enamel plates. But eventually his
assistant, who was a keen photo-
grapher, obtained a large photo-
graphic developing tray—a rarity
in those days—and with this Mr.
Ridley produced the first sheet of
rubber. One of these sheets was
sent to England where ex-
perts pronounced it to be of first-
class quality.

Mr. Ridley thus proved to his
own satisfaction that rubber culti-
vation had tremendous commercial
possibilities, but it was not quite
so easy to convince other people,
Wherever he went, he produced
a handful of rubber seeds from
the stock which he constantly
earried in his pockets, and dis-
tributed them to District Officers
and Residents to plant near their
houses. His object in doing this
was to have a good supply of

ments on May 1 lasted only a day
or two in most restaurants and
then died down completely.

Festive boards proved too much
for the natives. They had lost
the manly technique of gorman-
dizing.

Even though thousands of free
dentures have been issued since
the National Health Service was
inaugurated in July 1948, snappy
mastication was a lost art.

Luxury establishments through-
out mid-town London reported
only “moderate” increases in the
amount of food consumed by each
customer.

The only difference seemed to
be a demand for delicacies and
succulent tid-bits that restaurants
could not previously provide under
a 70-cent all-in charge.

Smoked salmon, caviare and
other tantalizing dishes have now
come out from under the counter.

London restaurants and _hoteTs
meanwhile are jammed with the
first rush of tourists and buyers
for the British Industries Fair.







Peninsula in readiness for the
great demand which he estimated
would come about 1900 with the
development of motor transport.

“Many years later”, Mr. Ridley
told me, “I found by the resthouse
at Tapah, Perak, some very large
trees, then owned by a Malay who
obtained two. piculs of rubber a
year from OMe of them. I found
that this house had formerly been
the District Officer’s residence and
that undoubtedly he had been one
of those to whom I gave seeds and
induced to plant them near his
house.”

Mr. Ridley tried in vain to in-
spire European planters with some
of his enthusiasm for rubber, but
it was not until 1895, when Mr.
R. C. M. Kindersley and Mr.
D. C. P. Kindersley took up rub-
ber planting in the Federated
Malay States and Mr. Tan Chay
Yan in Malacca, that he succeeded.

Rubber, valued at 2s. 8d. per Ib.,
was sent to England in 1896 from
the Botanical Gardens in Singa-
pore, and in 1897 rubber from
Perak, valued at 2s. 8d. to 3s. per
lb., was sent home by Mr. Derry.
The latter also sent a _ large
quantity in 1899, valued at 3s.710d.
per lb., and Mr. Curtis sent rubber
from Penang, valued at 3s. 3d. per
Ib., in 1898. This was the begin-
ning of the industry which today
earns millions of pounds every
year.

The situation now began to alter.
Coffee, which had been until then
practically the only agricultural
product of the Malay Peninsula,
began to disappear,* and rubber
seed was so much in demand that
it became extremely difficult to
supply them in sufficiently large
quantities. Meanwhile, the whole
staff of the Botanical Gardens in
Singapore were occupied in in-
structing planters, dpaling with
diseases of the rubber tree, im-
proving methods of smoking and
curing raw rubber, and shipping
seeds and seedlings to planters, not
only “in the Maluy Peninsula, but
all over the world.













Mr, Ridley’s work was recog-
nised by the British Government
in 1912, when he was made a
C.M.G. He left Malaya in The
same year.

Although he can truly be called
the father of the Malayan rubber
industry, Mr. Ridley has lived to
see that industry face its first
serious threat from a rival pro-
duct. That product — Amercian
synthetic rubber—valuable as it
was in wartime, need never have
been necessary, he believes, if the
Americans had developed a natural
rubber industry in or near Brazil,
from where the seeds of the first
‘trees planted in the Far East
originated.

Still active at 94 and as mental-
ly agile asa man of half his years,
Mr, Ridley today lives amid the
souvenirs of his travels to many
unexplored parts of the world. He
has compiled a diary, setting out
in the minutest detail every aspect
of his work as a botanist and
naturalist, and still keeps it up to
date.

But although he is surrounded
by the evidente of a lifetime spent
in the service of science, Mr, Rid-
ley’s most treasured possession is
a framed colleetion of signatures
of forty prominent Dutch scien-
tists, which was presented to him
on his ninetieth birthday in 1945,
in the hectic days just after Java
had been liberated from the

Quick Riches Bring

U.S.

Radio Prizes Prove
A Worry And Disillusion
- From FREDERICK COOK

GIVE-AWAY radio programmes are all
the rage in the United States. But for two



Misery

peoplé the riches of a prize brought misery

and worry.

Just before bed-time on the night of Janu-
ary 9, John Oaks, of Sparrow Point, near
Baltimore, Maryland, was listening to the
Stop-the-Music programme. On this pro-
gramme, a “mystery melody” had been
played for days.

A rich prize awaited the listener, tele-
phoned at random, who could name not only
the tune being played at the moment, but
the “mystery melody” too.

Mr. Oaks’ telephone rang.

In his excitement, he almost dropped it

when a voice said: “Mr. Oaks? You are about,
Mr. Oaks, to have the opportunity of a life-
time. Can you identify the name of the tune
we are playing now?”

Mr. Oaks’s niece, in for dinner that night,

said “It’s Maybe You’ll Be There.” He gave}
the name. Instantly the radio fell silent as a
voice yelled: “Stop the Music!”

A Car, Gems, Furniture . . .

“And now,” said the announcer, “if you

can answer the next question correctly I am
going to give you a brand new motorcar a
$3,000 diamond ring, a $2,500 diamond brace-
let, a $2,000 kitchen with $2,000 worth of
food, a $2,000 living-room suite, a $1,000 war
bond and many, many other things—alto-
gether worth $30,500.”

The question followed: “What is the title

of the Mystery Melody?”

Mr. Oaks knew that, too. His wife had

shouted

told him long before “The title,’ he said
shakily: “is ‘When the Bridegroom Comes.
“Right!”
cheers poured out-of Mr. Oaks’s radio set.
For him the cheering did not last long.

rang constantly.

People he had never heard of called and

asked for money. The postman brought his
letters by the sackful.

Most told hard-luck stories and asked for

money. Charities wrote by hundreds.

Then lorries started arriving with the

gifts. They filled his small house so that he
could hardly move. His wife, in the midst of
the excitement, had a heart attack.

Sued By Niece

The income tax man wrote to Mr. Oaks

warning him to keep careful record of all
the gifts and that they would be taxable, as};
unearned income. An accountant friend con-
firmed the worst, the tax would be more
than his annual salary.

In despair, Mr. Oaks started giving the

gifts away. Some he sold. Finally he kept
only $2,400 worth. But still the tax man said
he had received $30,500 worth, and would
get a bill for taxes on that. He almost had a
heart attack himself.

Then his niece filed suit for half of the

total, claiming that he would not have won
anything if she had not been there to name
the tune being played. This claim is now}
pending.

A Woman's House

In California, Mrs. Mary Brod won a $12,500

house “absolutely free” and now wishes she
had never heard of it. It was on a concrete

foundation.

She had to buy land to put it on, then

move it. This cost $3,000, plus a bond for
$2,000 she had to put up to guarantee that it
would comply with local housing laws.

Then came new foundations, sewers, water,

income.

gas and electricity connections, a garage,
landscaping to conform with the local zoning
rules, and a tax bill for $3,000 on unearned

Now the house is on the market. “It has
taken every cent of our savings,” said Mrs.
Brod. “We can’t afford to live in it now. All
we can hope for is to sell it and get our
money back.”—L.E.S.

To the Editor. The Advocate

SIR,—“A number of persons in
the island, keenly interested in the
public welfare, are becoming much
concerned about the rapidly in-
creasing secularisation of life in
general amongst us, and the
diversion of the Sabbath (or
Lord’s Day) from its proper and
most valuable use for Divine
worship, religious instruction and
moral culture. They therefore
beg to invite the community to
think afresh and very earnestly
concerning the matter.

Especially they wish to ask
parents and guardians of children
and young people to see that they
do not miss the help and benéfits
provided for them by the Sunday
Schools and the Churches. It is
exceedingly important for them
and through them for the future
of the whole community, tat
they be nurtured and trained in
Christian principles and ways of
living and Sunday is the special
opportunity for such vital assist-
ance.

It is very noteworthy that at the

Lodge School Speech Day
March last the three specially ex-
perienced and wise persons who
took part, the Headmaster, the
Bishop and H.E. the Governor,
joined to emphasise the supreme
importance of the spiritual basis
of the good life, and of instruction
in harmony with that great fact.

No Know All
To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Please refer to Sunday’s
Advocate (May 14) Page 4, “Side-
lights on Sport” starting from
the second paragraph of the sec-
tion “More Kudos”.

The writer of the column is
attacking Mr. Eytle’s “strange
observations on the West Indies
team” given over the BBC (Sun-
day, May 6, re Yorkshire match).

“Eytle found fault with Rama-

dhin’s bowling, with Walcott’s
wicket-keeping, with the West
Indies’ fielding among other

in things”.

Thus writes the writer
of the sports column. And he
goes on to object strongly to Mr.
Eytle’s comments, calling him a
“self-appointed know-all”, and
pointing out that Eytle “cannot
claim the honour of having rep-
resented either British Guiana in
intercolonial cricket or the West
Indies in international cricket.”

All of which is very bad form.
I heard the summary “Calling the
West Indies,” Eytle said that
Ramadhin was bowling short of a
length; he said that Walcott's
wicket-keeping was much ~ better
than it was in the match vs. Wor-
cestershire (and described and
praised one of his catches); and
as for the West Indies fielding, he
said that our men. were quick to
the ball, ran it hard when neces-
sary, but ‘that their throw back
to the wicket-keeper left much to
ba desired.

He also said that the Yorkshire
side looked better in the field—
mere businesslike, more up to

Test standard in their fielding
than the West Indies did. (We
who saw the M.C.C. here, know

what he means)

But never once did Mr. Eytle
give me the impression that he
was a “know-all” (in fact, his
lack of experience did not allow
him to get over quick, clear, con-
fident impressions, which are so
important to ball-by-ball com~_
mentary-starved West Indians),
but he did see the game, and his
opinions did not differ to any
marked extent from other radio
reports, anyway.

Finally, I must object to the
insinuation that because Ernes.
Eytle did not pity intercolonial
cricket, he is not in a position to
criticise the game. Such an idea
—and this holds good for the
whole field of criticism—is false,

Road Now

To The Editor The Advocate

SIR,—The public have been
hearing for many years that Gov-
ernment contemplated building a
road from Three Houses along the
Coast to St. Andrew, in order to
help the unemployment situation,
now that the Harriman Company
are here with all their equipment
wouldn’t it be advisable to get a
quotation from them for the erec-

tion of a wide road along this area.
The scheme could be carried out
by the raising of a loan if the
present surplus is not sufficient.
In order to meet the interest and
sinking fund, a toll of a shilling
for each vehicle and a three pence
for each passenger passing over
the road could be charged, this
is what is done in many large
countries,

Hurricane Relief

The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—During the election cam-
paign of 1948, I was promised the
“L, R and the seven stars” but
up to the present I have neither
seen or heard anything. Election
will soon be here again.

During the period of August 31
and September Ist 1949, I suffer-
ed the loss of certain household
articles in the flooded area of Vine
Street, which up to this present
moment I am still unable to re-

place.

What has happened to our
representatives in the House of
Assembly? I think they should




be more ready and willing to give


better service since they are paid
a handsome salary. What has
happened to the “Hurricane Fynd”,
as well as the “Advocate Relief
Fund?”

RESIDENT.

Worship

The Editor The Advocate,

SIR,—I am very glad to see a
response given on behalf of the
Jewish Cemetery in Synagogue
Lane, and I make another appeal
that the building on these grounds
become a place of worship for the
Jews. Many of this sect are
anxious to know if this will be so,
so kindly enlighten readers on this
subject.

This is indeed holy ground, and
could be made a place of intsrest
to visitors and I hope soon to see
fhose hideous walls replaced by
nicely carved iron rails and gates
for privacy and respect to the
dead, and to keep out intruders.
“They sleep—the dear dead sleep
Hoping their loved ones’ footsteps

may softly creep
Around their graves! Safe watch

to keep”.

Deaths On
The Road

I SPITE OF warnings and
prosecutions, motorists _ still
continue to speed, but on the other
hand they are being caught daily
by Police Speed Traps, and heavy
fines- are being imposed. At the
City Police Cyurts yesterday two
such offenders were fined £5 and
£3 each.

Colonel R. T. Michelin, Com-
missioner ot Pouce, in an interview
with the Advocate yesterday said,
“Our aim is not to bring drivers
before the Police Court but to
improve driving along these nar-
row roads.”

He said that so far four people
were killed this year as a result
of road accidents and the Police
want to prevent “deaths on the
road”.

He pointed out that the speed
traps are placed along different
roads at various times. =
A PICTURE published recently

in the Advocate showed a
Police Constable about to cross the
Victoria Bridge roadway instead
of using the footpath.

The Advocate was informed yes-
terday that this Constable was not
breaking the Law, but on the
other hand was enforcing the Law
by directing pedestrians to use the
footpath.

‘oo POLICE ARE taking steps

against shopkeepers who fail
to exhibit the Shop Orders of 1946
which sets out the hours of duties
for the employees with early and
late closing days

So far 26 shopkeepers were
charged on Wednesday and 17
yesterday with failing to exhibit
these orders and what is interest-
ing to note is that seven shop-
keepers were prosecuted yesterday
for not closing their shops at the
time stated under this Act.

The Commissioner said yester-
day that other shopkeepers whe
disregard this Act will also be
prosecuted.

RUMPTON STREET, which
was only recently made a
main thoroughfare, is now show-
ing signs of wear and tear caused
by the heavy vehicles using the
road daily.

A lorry loaded with sugar was
turning into Crumpton Street from
Roebuck Street on Tuesday morn-
ing when its left rear wheel force:t
in a part of the covering of the
gutter, leaving a dangerous hole.

The lorry continued on its way
but a Police Constable in the dis-
trict kept guard over the hole
and directed other vehicles that
were turning the corner. Soon
after @ red flag was placed over
the spot and repairs are now
being carried out.

Shortly afterwards the covering
of a manhole at the corner of
Crumpton Street and Constitution
Road broke in when a lorry, also
loaded with sugar, passed over it.
The new covering was brought
the same day and the corner was
again safe to traffic.

Labourers are also doing some-
thing to the centre of Crumpton
Street.

HE WEST INDIAN Knitting

Mill at Coleridge Street is still
awaiting the arrival of more ma-
chinery. When thig happens the
scope of the factory will be widen-
ed and a greater variety of mate-
rials will be produced.

When full scale operations start,
the factory will be working a 24-
hour day and this will mean more
employment for Barbadians.

Three new machines have re-
cently been added to the Sewing
Department and another batch of
girls were brought in.

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



Gets Less

From Emigrants

THE RETURNS from emigration by which Barbados
benefited immensely during the last five or six years are

now’ dwindling.

From Curacao remittances in 1949 reach-

ed over one million dollars but already 1950 shows a drop

to $28,000 per month.

From the United States the re
mittances in 1949 amounted to
$77,707.20 and this is. showing
signs of a reduction consequent on
reduction of the number of men,

Since 1944 when the scheme
started there were about 8,000
men sent to the United States.
Some of these went more than
once and to date there are less
than 500 men in U.S.A,

The three million) dollars does
not include those amounts which
were remitted privately or brought
back by the emigrants.

Recent communications show
that efforts on the part of the
local Government to get a quota
for emigration to U.S.A. have not
been successful.

The progress Report of the
Workers’ Savings Branch show
that remittances amounted to
$3,045,981.33 and that the dis-
bursements are as follows;

DISBURSED:

Remitted to B,W.LC.L.O. $ 1,983.64
Refunded to Barbados
Government 71,255.14
Paid to Returned Workers 2,240,413.64
Paid to Workers’ Allot-
tees 493,251.14
Paid Court Dues 584.00
$2,807 ,487.56
Balance (B.W.I. Funds) 238,493.77
$3,045,981.33

But emigration to U.S.A. is not
the only scheme from which Bar-
bados has benefited within recent
years, Aruba and. especially
Curacao have supplied work for
Barbadians and there are still
hundreds in the Dutch colonies
Remittances increased steadily for
some years until the total for
1949 amounted to $1,447,483.37
with a smal] amount of this going
to St. Lucia and St. Vincent. Now
it might be reduced.

Already for the year 1950 the
remittances for the first three
months amount to the tidy sum
of $86,811.77 at an average of
over $28,000 per month.

There are 328 Barbadians in
Curacao employed particularly as
seamen and in other capacities,

In Aruba the field is not so
wide and even now recent tend-
encies show a reduction in the
cmployment of Barbadians ac-
cording to the bulletin of the
Caribbean Commission,

“Gradual reduction in the labour
force has been taking place in the
oil refineries of Aruba since the
latter part of 1949. In most cases
employees leaving the company
have not been replaced, and, in
addition, recruited labour is being
released as the work for which it
was hired is finished.

The Future

In an attempt to see into the
future of employment, the Presi-
dent of one of the companies sug-
gested the following general in-
iuences as affecting the situatign:
(1) am increased flow of oil from
the Middle East and elsewhere
which resulted in the building of
refineries in Europe and other
places during and after the war;
(2) an overbuilding in the whole
petroleum industry to help meet
the huge demands for oil products
immediately following the war;
(3) Canada’s producing more of
her oil supplies; (4) general in-

creased competition all along
the line.
These things, the President

stated, make it likely that the
crude runs for 1950 will be lower
than the average for 1949. Sugh
an occurrence may bring about tne
shut down of more processing
units which will, in turn, require
less personnel and less mainten
ance, It is hoped that a gradual
reduction in forces can be made
through the usual resignations and
other terminations of employment.
It appears, he added, that this will
not be sufficient, and additional
layoffs may be necessary through-
out the year.

ATATURK FORMED

MODERN
Lecture By Mr.

TURKEY
Risely Tucker

TURKEY "TODAY is a vastly different place from

what it was in 1923.
geograpHfically between the

To-day it is a country which, lying

east and the west, has set its

face towards progress along western lines, and is western
in outlook from the hats worn by the people, to the eman-

cipation of women.

This was stated in the lecture '*—

given at the British Council on
Wednesday night by Mr. Risely
Tucker, British Council Represen-
tative in Barbados. Mr. Tucker
told how the man who had started
the Turkish War of Independence
in 1919 had, after becoming presi-
dent, introduced sweeping reforms
that had transforimed his country.
He was Mustapha Kemal Ataturk,
and he did this transformation in
just 15 vears.

Between East ana West

Mr. Tucker began by reminding
his listeners that Turkey lies be-
tween the east and the west, and
that one thought of Turkey as be-
longing to the east or the west ac-
cording to the direction from
which one approached it. For ex-
ample, he said, people leaving
England and going to Turkey
thought of it as an eastern coun-
try. On the other hand, his wife
and he had gone there after living
for a long time in Moslem coun«
tries in the Middle East, and to
them it seemed like going back
to Englfind.

Mr. Tucker after telling of the
main geographical features of
Turkey went on to inform those
present of the variety of climates
found there. Climate ranged from
the absolutely tropical one in the
south, to the arctic winters in Ana-
‘olia_and towards the Black Sea.

The speaker then gave the
romantic story of how the Turks,
centuries ago, came over in
various ways from Central Asia,
and captured what was then
Constantinople. He told how
they looked on the Crusaders
Shey built up an empire that
as terrible barbarians and how
went right through the Middle
East, along the north coast of
Africa; how they penetrated well
into the Balkans, and more
than once laid siege to Vienna.
Next came a story of reverses
for the Turks; the story of the loss
of their Empire in the first world
war, and the occupation of their
country by Britain, France and
Greece. But out of those reverses
sprang the modern Turkey, Mr.
Tucker’s lecture showed. For
about 1919, strong man of Turkey,
Mustapha Kemal Ataturk by cour-
age and bluff raised an army, lib-
erated his country and then set
cut to re-organise it,

Ataturk

He did a thorough teorganising
job, and made himself deeply
loved and admired by his country-
men.

Ataturk decided that his coun-
try must become a_ western
country, and that it must prog-
ress. He decided that Turkey
should forget all thoughts of
empire, and develop the home-
land. He abolished the Sultanate
and himself refused the crown;
but he became the first president
of the Turkish Republic. He broke
the grip of the Moslem Religion
on the government of the coun-
try, and made Turkey into a lay
state, safeguarding, however, the
freedom of religion provided that
there was no attempt by any
religion to proselytise or inter-
fere in the government.

Ataturk, in addition, brought
in many reforms aimed at
breaking traditions which would
hinder development along west-
ern lines. Such reforms in-
cluded the abolition of religious
schools and religious courts;
making illegal the wearing of
the fez or turban, and insisting
that western hats be worn:
introduction of the international
ealendar and clock; the aboli-
tion of polygamy: introduction
of a civil code along the lines
of the Swiss Code.

The reformer, Ataturk also
provided for the complete eman-

the e of the old A



mint Seen

illegal, replacing it with the
Roman script, so that relations
between the Turks and Europe-
ans could be facilitated, He
brought in a land law and _ broke
up the big estates, giving the land
to peasant proprietors.
Reform Drive

Ataturk, continuing his drive
at reform, compelled families to
take family names and abolished
all titles and military decorations
except the Medal of the War of
Independence, which, incidentally,
is worn on the right breast and
not on the, left.

Mr. Tucker then described
Turkey’s form of government as
being for all practical purposes
a one-party “government, The
presidert. is elected first to the
National Assembly and then to
the Grand National Assernbly.

Ataturk died in 1938, and was
succeeded by President Inonu,
a clever man and less radical
in his reforms than Ataturk,
whose principal assistant he had
been. This new president was
described by Mr. Tucker as the
ideal one for the Turkey of to-
day.

Mr. Tucker talked about mod-
ern Turkey’s educational system
in which there is complete equal-
ity for boys and girls, Co-educa-
tion is practiced, and education
is nominally compulsory and
quite free right up to university
level. Technical schools are
being founded at the rate of two
or three a year. Agriculture and
industry are being developed
along modern lines.

Mobilised Since 1939

The forces of the country had
been mobilised ever since 1939,
Mr. Tucker told the audience,—
informing those who did not
know, and reminding the others,
—that it was a British navel
mission which years ago had
organised the Turkish Navy. Th?
result was that the British and
Turkish Navies have much :n
common, even the names of fix-
tures on the ships.

Mr. Tucker described the
Turkish soldier as being very
tough. Telling of the Turkish
character as he saw it, he said
they were a very honest people.
They were, in fact, too proud w
be dishonest. He said they
were self-reliant and frugal in
life, and extremely patriotic,
but charming in their treatment
of any foreigners whom they
trusted,

Turkish women had _ reacted
finely to their emancipation, said
Mr. Tucker, and took their part
in public life without forgetting
the art of being charming in
their homes. Because of _ that,
there was no militant feminism
in Turkey.

Mr. Tucker said that the Brit-
ish Council establishment in
Ankara was a large one. There
were during his time, over 20
London appointed officers and

over 50 Council employees alto-
gether. The budget in 1944 was
2300,000.

one now would be a more ex-
pensive affair than the one just
constructed, In view of the pos-
sible reconstruct on of the bridge,
however, this was a matter thai
would necessitate the careful
consideration of Government be-
fore granting the necessary mo-
ney, the Director of Highways
and Transport told the “Adyvo-
cate” yesterday.

He said that he did consider
the erection of a “Please Cross

Here” sign from the Public
Works entrance to the present
pathway a necessity. and that

this would definitely be done.
Immediately after the putting
up of other signs in the City, full
attention, he said, would be giv-
en to “crossing” signs for pe-

destrians wherever they were
necessary.
The Director said that the

erection of “Road Direction”
signs about the island had now
greatly improved on account of
the availability of the necessary
material. The extension of ‘“Ma-
jor Road” signs was a recognised
necessity too, he considered, and
an effort was now being made

to devise a cheaper sign than
that at present in use.
Work in Hand

Asked about the annual Road

Construction Programme, he saic
that the work was in hand, and
in some places had already start
ed. As regards the Harmon)
Hall bend to which attention had
but recently been drawn in the
House of Assembly, he said that
estimates had been submitted to
Government, and their decision
was now being awaited,
Referring to the new bus
stand, the Director said that it
seemed to be working quite sat-
isfactorily as there had been no
complaints from any quarter

Tax-Free Holidays
Should Attract
Foreign Capital

Trinidad is making a ‘great
effort to encourage foreign capi-
tal and so establish additional
industries in the colony in fur-
therance of their policy of in-
dustrial development, Mr. Solo-
mon Hochoy, Commissioner of

“Advocate” yesterday.

Mr. Hochoy arrived on Sunday
by B.W.LA. for the Labour OM-
cers’ Conference, and is staying
at the Hastings Hotel.

He said that in order fo give
effect to the policy of encourag-
ing foreign investment, the Gov-
ernment had enacted legislation
to aid pioneer industries. The
chief provision of the Ordinance
was a tax-free holiday period,
which should prove to be a great
attraction to foreign capital, The
manufacture of glass bottles had
already been declared a pioneer
industry.

Trinidad offered great possibil-
ities for development by reason
of the fact that fuel and elec-
dricity were easily available and
again, the availability of deep-
water harbour and inland trans.
facilities and its geo-

graphical position, which were
great assets.
Mr. Hochoy said that living

conditions in Trinidad still con-
tinued to be subject to external
forces over which the colony
had no control, in common with
all other British West Indian
territories,

The reduced value of the pound
and restrictions on dollar spend-
ing had tended to make living
conditions, perhaps, a little more
difficult, There was still heavy

the provisions of the Rent Re-
striction Ordinance have tended
to curb inflations in rental levels.
Agreement

He said that after weeks of
negotiations, the Oilfields Em-
ployees’ Association and the Oil
fields Workers' Union coneluded
on Wednesday last week, an
agreement to take the place of
one just expired. The details had
not yet been released, but for-
mal ratification of the agreement
was due to take place on Thurs-
day May 25.

The House Met
In *«‘Rum-Shops”’

THE BARBADOS HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY used to
meet in “Rum-shops” in the 17th Century, Mr. Lionel L.
Hutchinson, Librarian of the House of Assembly, told the
Leeward Cultural Association

in Speightstown last night.

@ Mr. Hutchinson was giving an
introduction to the House ol
Assembly and during his speech
said:

In those days the Assembly was
not blessed with a specific cham-
ber, and taverns,—or if we
prefer in this age to call them
“Rum-shops” we are welcome,-—
were the main venue for meet-

ings, until Sir Johnathan Atkins
who came as Governor in 1674
publicly criticized meetings in
taverns. He also took the oppor-
tunity to remind the Legislature
that he was truly in sympathy
with the Good Shepherd, since

he as* Governor had no where to
lay his head.

Sometimes the House met at
private residences, Freemasons
lodges .or at the Clerk’s House.
The cost of refreshment for the
members was usually defrayed
from the excise on liquor,

However, about 1714 it seemed
customary for the Assembly to
meet at Pilgrims, the residence of

All Ready For Rain

PEDESTRIANS in the City area
were yesterday equipped with
their rain coats, but there were no
hard showers in this area. Several
women were seen with plastic
coats or head ties of the same ma-
terial which were placed either in
their baskets or carried over the



hand.

Cyclists carried coats over the
handles of their vehicles, while
passengers getting on and off the
buses were also prepared for any
showers. About midday a few
light showers fell in the city area
but were soon finished.

Governor William Sharpe, and
after differences of, opinion
between the Governor and As-

sembly, a new venue had to be
found. In 1730 when the Town
Hall was built, the Assembly
found accommodation awaiting in
this building. At its inception,
the Town Hall housed the judi-
ciary, along with the Legislature,
and prisoners. In 1837 the
influx of lawbreakers crowded
out the Legislature and the judi-
ciary, which were transferred to

the opposite building, until the
opening of Glendairy Pirison
allowed these important bodies

to resume in the Town Hall

On the morning of 14th Febru-
ary, 1860, a destructive fire took
toll of Bridgetown claiming the
business premises of John Gill, a
druggist on the west side of High
Street, and after the fire, (and
it was not possible to “save John
Gill and let the Ice House burn”)
the government wisely purchased
the Trafalgar site and erected the

Public Buildings in 1872, whien
were opened in 1874, giving birth
c ‘ne present chambers of the

House of Assembly.



Technique For

Statistics

MR. ALLAN I. MORAIS, Senior
Assistant Statistician of the Cen-
tral Bureau of Statistics, Jamaica,
is now in Barbados discussing with
the officers attending the Labour
Conference, the establishment of
a standard technique in the com-
pilation of presentation and inter-
pretation of cost of living on re-
tail price indices in the West In-
dies,

Mr. Morais arrived on Monday
evening by B.W.1.A. and is stay-
ing at the Hastings Hotel.

Methods

He said that he had already dis-

cussed with the members of the

delegation, the methods now oper-
ating in their various territories.
Problems in that connection
had been outlined in detailed
discussions and recommendations

would) be handed down to the
Conference on the extent of change
if any, that might be desirable.

Mr, Morais recently returned
from England where he was the
Jamaica's representative at the
London Conference of Colonial
Government Statisticians held be-
tween March 15 and 3),

before declaring today, the

iwo wickets before the close.

They were then 215 behind.

Spartan
Defeat

Rovers

Spartan defeated Pickwick-
Rovers by the odd goal in three
at Kensington yesterday evening
to retain their lead in the First
Division Football line up.

The game was fairly fast
throughout. The Spartan for-
wards combined better and thei:

defence offered a stubborn re-
sistance at all times, They also
kept the Rovers players wel!
marked and their long passing
was accurate

The Park team should have
ccred many. more goals but
Boyce on their left wing failed
to make use of many opportuni-
ties when he was unmarked.
Rovers too missed a few oppor-
tunities.

ro .

First Half

Spartan scored their two goals
in the first half. The first was
punched in by Desmond John-
son, their inside right while
Keith Walcott scored the second

with a powerful shot from well
outside the goal area.

The lone goal for Pickwick-
Rovers was scored by Taylor,
their inside right, in the second
half. ;

The touch off was taken by

Spartan who defended the north
goal. The Kensington boys were
first to attack. Wilkes beat his
way down the left wing but the
Spartan backs tackled him and
cleared before. he could shoot
goalwards.

Outside

Soon after Robinson, on the
left wing for Rovers, got hold of
the ball and took a shot. Gib-
bons in the back line for Spartan
stopped the ball and pushed it
outside, Wilkes kicked a corner
but the Spartan defence soon had
the ball mid-field.

A few minutes later Spartan
opened their account when Boyce,
after receiving a pass from one
of the halves, ran down the left
wing and centred. The ball
struck the right upright and re-
bounded into play. Johnson, who
was boring though, pounced on
the ball and shot hard into the
left corner of the nets while
Hill, the Rovers custodian, was
out of position.

The second
came without

goal for Spartan
any fuss, Keith
Walcott who was well outside
the goal area, took a hard shot
which went into the left corner
of the nets while Hill stood gaz-
ing at the cross bar.

At half time the score was un-
changed, Spartan were first to
attack on resumption and nearly
seored their third goal when
Chase centred. Walcott received
the ball and took a “powder-
puff” shot. Hill pushed the ball
back into play and Trotman, who
was standing in front the goal,
had a try but the ball struck the
left upright and rebounded. f

A few minutes later a melee
took place in the Rovers goal
area but Mike Foster somehow
got hold of the ball and cleared.

Bowen, in the Spartan back
line was well up and the ball
went over his head. Taylor ran
through and beat Harris with a
high shot to open the account
for his team.

Rovers nearly got the equaliser
about five minutes before the
blow-off, A free kick was award-
ed and Foster punched the ball
to Wilkes. Before Wilkes could
settle the ball Wells ran across
and took a lusty kick which went
high over the cross bar.

The teams were;

Spartan; Harris, Gibbons, Bow-
en, Cadogan, Haynes, Chase,
Johnson, Walcott, Trotman, Boyce
and Gittens.

by Oxford Harlequins against

K. Nunes in 1928.

Strong driving Stevenson, who
hit nine tours, and May shafted
in an unfinished stand of 84 in
less than an hour for Cambridge

Che tourists got a wicket with
the tenth ball of the day, left-

_aer fimmel edging a catch to

wicket-keeper. But May and
S.cvenson maintained an average
«coring rate of about 80 runs an
hour and added 84 in fifty five
minutes. Stevenson hit nine fours
six of which were scored in his
first 27 runs,

Of 145 overs bowled by the
tourists, only 13 were maidens.

W.1. Batting

Warr and Waitt bowled at a fin:
pace when the West Indies went
in, and both Christiani and Stoll-
meyer enjoyed an early escape.
Stollmeyer, who took twenty
minutes to open his score, had
made only two when he was
dropped at first slip off Waitt
and Christiani, who was more
enterprising, saw May in the gul-
ly miss a chest high catch off
Warr when he was 19. Had the
catches been held two wickets
would have been down for 27,
The batsmen afterwards display-
ed care, and Stollmeyer, timing
the ball badly, was clearly ill at
ease,

However, this proved to be the
pest West Indies opening partner-
ship of the tour. They steadily
improved and Christiani, after
taking 100 minutes to reach, 50,
completed his first century—the
third of the touring team, in an-
other fifty.

Not until the board showed 178
in two hours, fifty minutes, did
Christiani fall l.b.w. His driving,
cutting and hitting to leg were
excellent, and he hit eleven fours.

Stollmeyer, not nearly so ag-
gressive, made some good drives
and leg glances, but he took nearly
three hours and a half to put to-
gether 83, with only three boun-
daries. He fell to a great catch
in the gully by Doggart, who flung
himself sideways and held the ball
near the ground,

Worrell and Weekes

Then came Worrell and Weekes,
both driving and hitting to leg
powerfully to add 166 without
being parted in the last hour and
fifty minutes. Weekes scored so
freely that he reached 102 in 101
minutes. So far the match has
yielded 973 runs for six wickets.

In the Ladies’ Déubles which

ended in a victory for Tranquillity
the game was quite even and thera
were good patches of net play.
Miss Reid won most of her points
with cross court shots and Miss
Trestrail was playing very stead-

eventually won by three sets to

PAGE FOl'B BARBADOS A DVOCATE FRIOAV MAV i<>. nsn BARBADOS ip AIMMTE They Called Him Mail Ifcruiis.II. Said ll.il.h.i loultl II. hriran In Malaya Friday. May 19. 195" Oil TWO MAJOR facts mrgt f, ( .ni tlu Government's lon awaited announcement on oil. The first is that the Government of Barbados have driven a hard bargain in the interests of th e people of Barbados. The second is that if there is oil in Barbados the Gulf Corporation will find it. The first fact is obvious when it :s realised that under the terms of the prospecting and concession licence the Government of Barbados retains rights over three quarters of the island while obtaining royalties of twelve and a half per cent on all oil produced and rentals of one dollar per year for every acre of land under lease. Furthermore after the comparatively short period of 21 years the Government of Barbados will have the right to increase the royalty to 161 per cent. There can be no doubt that these favourable terms are due in no small measure to the expert advice of the Albertan Minister of Mines without whose assistance the Government of Barbados would have found it Impossible to negotiate with the competing oil Companies who wanted to obtain rights for deep drilling in Barbados. Free of cost, to this island the Hon. N. E. Tanner was loaned to Barbados by a Province of Canada where the discovery of oil has been hailed as fabulous and where orderly exploitation of oil is in marked contrast to the feverish inflation which has in the past forced up costs of living in so many other countries where oil booms have occurred. Writing uf Alberta in Wednesday's issue of this newspaper the Toronto correspondent of the greatest Conservative newspaper organisation in the United Kingdom wrote "The modem boom is not accompanied by the hysterical speculation which followed the old gold rushes. It Is a steady growth, marked by the most restrained and level headed investment in the history of this great land of buried treasured." It is in this province of Alberta that the Hon. N. E. Tanner is Minister of Mines. Barbados can hardly ever have been more fortunate in getting the services of jfuch a man at tio cost to the taxpayer of this island. U there is oil in Barbados the Gulf Corporation have promised to find it and the activities of a company whose operations are world wide leave no doubt that the promise will be fulfilled. The announcement that the Corporation are contemplating an early start with geophysical operations (which include the use of magnetometers on the ground and in the air) is sign enough that so far as the Gulf Corporation is concerned the search for oil—which is said to hove existed in Barbados before it was discovered in the United States—has begun. No one knows whether there is oil in Barbados nor how much oil will be produced, nor can anyone forecast with certainty what changes will result in the island, if oil is discovered. Everyone is entitled to hope however, that an island which imports 44 per cent of its food from North America and which finds it increasingly difficult to provide economic employment for the heavy population it must support will find oil in aufii ciently large quantities to raise the material standards of life throughout the community. In assessing the "facts revealed by the Government announcement that a prospecting and concession licence has been given to Gulf Oil Corporation, the important question to answer is "will Barbados benefit most from the deal?" On the facts, as announced, it is impossible not to give the Government credit for having driven a hard bargain in the interests of the people of the island. LONDON May 24th is Empire Day. Fifty yean ago its founder, the Earl ol M.-ath. said the object of Empire ay celebrations was "the outward sign or an inner awakening ..f the peoples who constitute the British Empire to the sertou* .Udles which lie el their door.'" He chow May 24th for these celebrations because H was Queen Victoria's birthday May 24th is also the anniversary of the Linnean Society, and to mark the occasion the Society will make its annual award of the Linnean Medal to an outstanding naturalist. Their choker of recipient could not have been more appropriate for they have chosen as this year's medallist Mr. Henry Nicholas Ridley. C MO., the man who founded the rubber industry in Malaya. Now In his 95th year. Mr. Ridley is one of the last surviving "Empire builders." His "serious duty" was plain to him when he went to Singapore 62 years ago lo take over the position of Director ,f the Botanical Gardens. He saw what no other man had seen — that this little-known colonv was a source of potential wealth unrivalled by any other of our possessions. Against sreat adversity he founded the rubber Industry which today earns mor? dollars for the Empire than any other single industry in it. But though rubber has earned many fortunes for the men who followed Mr. Ridley's early lead, he himself Is a man of modest means, living quietly on the edge of Kew Gardens, In London. The story of his achievement is all the more fascinating because tt is little known. It will not be found In history books, nor among the great succe s s stories of the last century Yet it Is a story well worth telling. Mr. TildJey was a young man of 12 when he arrived In Singapore He had heard of the attempts that had already been made to grow rubber trees In Asia. He knew for Instance, that a number of rubber seeds, sent from Kew. had been planted In India, but had perished during the cold season He knew too. that rubber plants, also from Kew. had been nlanted In Ceylon, but had been given up as a commercial proposition He had heard of experiments carried out on rubber trees In the Singapore Botanical Gardens. Twenty-two seedlings, a few from the same batch that had been sent to Kew from Brazil, hnd been planted there. When Mr Ridlev first saw them, they had multiplied There were now about a thousand rubber trees in the Gardens, but they were overgrown with secondary )unle. The trees were there, hurstlng with latex, but nobodv knew how to ret It nut. Stripping the tree of Its bark, as they did In Brazil. yielded a certain amount of rubber, but it also killed the tree It didn't ne*H a botanic m toll that this method was unsatisfactory. Between spells of watching a troop of monkeys which had settled In the Gardens—he once witnessed the murder of iho %  Marly king of the troop by two .voting monkeys—and observing for the first time with human eyes the behaviour of a colony of ants, which made nests from leaves by sewing them together with the thread from their larvae, Mr RillBy RONALD BOXALL MR. RIDLEY ley concentrated on the pioblcm < Shrinks LONDON Overseas tourists are tucking In heartily now that Britain has become an "eat-what-you-llke" nation, in the Restaurants at least. But ten years of austerity has shrivelled the tummy ol John Bull. There were fears that the natives would panic the restaurants and hotels with demands rur "square meals" once the 70ccnt ceiling on meals was removed to garner more tourist dollars. These apprehensions have proved groundless. The well-upholstered b e e Iealers of Merrie Englande are entitled to a full turn in their gravs —for their modern counterparts are no "trenchermen"—even when the victuals are there. Ten years of meagre rations nas killed the habit of heavy eating The British can no longer ply a good knife and fork. Even the "curiosity" rush which followed the lifting of restrictions on meals in catering establishments on May 1 lasted only a day or two In most restaurants and then died down completely. Festive boards proved too much for the natives. They had lost the manly technique of gormandizing. Even though thousands of free dentures have been issued since the National Health Service was inaugurated In July 1948. snappy mastication was a lost art. Luxury establishments throughout mid-town I.ondon reported only "moderato" Increases in the amount of food consumed by each customer. The only difference seemcl to be a demand for delicacies and succulent tid-bits that restaurants could not previously provide iinr' M a 70-cent all-in charge. Smoked salmon, cavtaga and other tantalizing dishes have now come out from under the counter London restaurants and hotels meanwhile are Jammed wlnt the lirst rush of tourists and buyers for the British Industries Fair. They have greeted the plentiful supplies of comestibles with gratification and traditional sounds of satisfaction. But they report that it will take London and the rest of Britain some time to regain any sort of eminence in the food world. Prices are most reasonable. But cooking and service could really do with a good deal of Improvement. For ten years British kitchen and dining room staffs have been proportioned to austerity needs. Compantively few. even of London's mid-town twank establishments, have been prepared for the demands on skilled chefa made inevitable by tne abandonment of food restrictions. Reports in the trade state that in London alone some 400 firstclass chefs could find employment. Americana, however, have found that the British have finally caught on the table when 'hey sit down to dine. -INS Quick Rirhes Bring Misery I'.S. Iladio Prize* Prove A Worn Ami D.illu*.on From FREDERICK COOK GIVE-AWAY radio programmes are all the rage In the United Stales. But for two people the lithes of a prize brought misery and worry. Just before bed-time on the night of January 9, John Oaks, of Sparrow Point, near Bammore. Maryland, was listening to the Stop-the-Music programme. On this programme, a "mystery melody'* had been played for days. A rich prize awaited the listener, tele phoned at random, who could name not only the tune being played at the moment, hut the "mystery melody" too. Mr. Oaks' telephone rang. In his excitement, he almost dropped it when a voice said: "Mr. Oaks? You are about Mr Oaks, to have the opportunity of a lifetime. Can you identify the name of the tune we art playing now?'' Mr. Oaks's niece, in for dinner that night, said "It's Maybe You'll Be There." He gavef the name. Instantly the radio fell silent as a voice yelled: "Stop the Music?" A Car. Gems, Furniture . "And now," said the announcer, "if you can answer the next question correctly I am going to give you a brand new motorcar a $3,000 diamond ring, a $2,500 diamond bracelet, a $2,000 kitchen with $2,000 worth of food, a $2,000 living-room suite, a $1,000 war bond and many, many other things—altogether worth $30,500." The question followed: "What is the title of the Mystery Melody?" Mr. Oaks knew that, too. His wife had told him long before "The title," he said shakily: "is 'When the Bridegroom Comes.' "Right!" shouted the announcer, and cheers poured out of Mr. Oaks's radio set. For him the cheering did not last long. Wife's Heart Attack Two hours late, five policemen stood outside his door, keeping back tremendous crowds. His telephone rang constantly. Friends called to congratulate him. People he had never heard of called and asked for money. The postman brought his letters by the sackful. Most told hard-luck stories and asked for money. Charities wrote by hundreds. Then lorries started arriving with the gifts. They filled his small house so that he could hardly move. His wife, in the midst of the excitement, had a heart attack. Sued By Niece The income tax man wrote to Mr. Oaks warning him to keep careful record of all the gilts and that they would be taxable, as unearned income. An accountant friend confirmed the worst, the lax would be more than his annual salary. In despair, Mr. Oaks started giving the gifts away. Some he sold. Finally he kept only $2,400 worth. But still the tax man said he had received $30,500 worth, and would get a bill for taxes on that. He almost had a heart attack himself. Then his niece filed suit for half ol the total, claiming that he would not have won anything if she had not been there to name the tune being played. This claim is now pending. A Woman's House In California, Mrs. Mary Brod won a $12,500 house "absolutely free" and now wishes she had never heard of it. It was on a concrete foundation. She had to buy land to put it on, then move it. This cost $3,000, plus a bond for $2,000 she had to put up to guarantee that it would comply with local housing laws. Then came new foundations, sewers, water, gas and electricity connections, a garage, landscaping to conform with the local zoning rules, and a tax bill for $3,000 on unearned income. Now the house is on the market. "It has taken every cent of OUT savings." said Mrs. Brod. "We can't afford to live in it now. All we can hope for is to sell it and get our money back."—L.E.S*. Oar Header* Say: Sunday Is A Day Of The Spirit To the Editor. The Advocate SIB.—"A number of persons in the Island, keenly Interested in the public welfare, are becoming much concerned about the rapidly Increasing secularisation uf lite in general amongst us, and the diversion of the Sabbath (or Lord's Day) from Its proper and most valuable use for Divine worship, religious instruction and moral culture. They therefore beg to Invite the community to think afresh and very earnestly concerning the matter. Especially they wish to ask parents and guardians of children and young people lo see (hat they do not miss the help and benefits provided for them by the Sunday Schools and the Churches. It Is exceedingly important for them and through them for the future of the whole community, tiTSl they be nurtured and trained in Christian principles and ways o' living and Sunday is the special opportunity for such vital assistance. It Is vary noteworthy that at the Lodge School Speech Day in March last the three specially experienced and wise persons who took part, the Headmaster, the Bishop and H E. the Governor. joined to emphasise the supreme Importance of the spiritual basis of the good life, and of Instruction In harmony with that great fact. FRANCIS GODSON. On behalf of Associates for Spiritual Revival and Emphasis Chelsea. May IB, 1960. WO hnnir All To the Editor. The Advocate— SIR,—Please refer lo Sunday's Advocate (May 14) Page 4. "Sidelights on Sport" starling from the second paragraph of the section "More Kudos". The *TttW of the column |a attacking Mr. Eytle's "strange observation* on the West Indies learn" given over tlM BBC (Sunday. May 6. re Yorkshire match). bund fault with Ramadhln's bowling, with Walrotfs wleket-keeping, with I Indies' fielding among other things". Thus writes the writer of the sports column. And he goes on to object strongly to Mr. Eytle's comments, calling him a "self-appointed know-all", and pointing out that Eytle "cannot claim the honour of having represented either British Guiana in intercolonial cricket or the West Indies In International cricket." All of which Is very bad form. I heard the summary "Calling ihc West Indies." Eytl said that Ramadhin was bowling short of a length i he said that Walcott's wicket-keeping was much better than it was In the match vs. Worcestershire (and described and praised one of his catches); aiui %  a for the West Indies fielding, he said that our men were quick to the Kill, ran it hard when necessary, but that their throw beck to the wicket-keeper left much to b desired. He also said dial tU V .side icoked better in the aeld more businesslike more up to Test standard in their lidding than the West Indies did (We who saw the M.C.C. here, know what he means). But never once did Mr. Eytle give me the Impression that he was a "know-air' (m fact, his lack of experience did not allow him to get over quick, clear, contidetit impressions, which are o important to ball-by-ball com mentary-starved West Indians but he did see the game, and his opinions did not differ to any marked extent from other radio reports, anyway. Finally. I must object to the insinuation that because Ernes. Eytla did not p&. intercolonial cricket, he Is not in a position to criticise the game. Such an ide;i —and this holds good for tho whole field of criticism—la false. L E. BRATHWA1TE I'I-UII Vow To The Editor The Advocate SIR,—The public have been hearing for many years that Government contemplated building a road from Three Houses along the Coast to St. Andrew, in order to help the unemployment situation, now that the Harrlman Company .'re ban with all their equipment wouldn't It be advisable lo get a tiuotation from them for the erecI lion of a wide road along this area The scheme could be carried out by the raising of a loan If the present surplus is not sufficient. In order to meet the Interest and Milking fund, a toll of a shilling far each vehicle and a three pence for each passenger passing ovei Ihe road could be charged, Oils is what Is done in many large countries. TAXI DRIVER Hurricane ReHrf The Editor, The Advocate SIR,-During the election campaign of IMS. I was promised the "L, R and the seven stars" but up to the present I have neither •een or heard anything. Election will soon be here again. During the period of August 31 and September 1st 1949. I suffered the loss of certain household articles In the flooded area of Vine Street, which up to this present moment I am still unable to replace. What has happened to our lives in the House of Assembly? I think they should be more ready and willing to give better service since they are paid a handsome salary What has happened to the "Hurricane Fund". as well as the Advocate Relict Fund?" RESIDENT. Wonhip The Edtlor The Adeocate, S1H. 1 am very glad to see a response given on behalf of the Jewish Cemetery in Synagogue Lane, and I make another appeal that the building on these ground become a place of worship for the Jews. Many of this sei anxious to know If this will be so. so kindly enlighten readers %  suBJect. This Is indeed holy ground, end could be made a place of int >rrs! to visitors and I hope soon to see the e hideous walls replaced by nicety carved iron rails and gates for privacy and respect to the dead, and to keep out intruders 'They sleep—the dear dead sleep Hoping their loved ones' footsteps may softly creep Around their graves; Safe watch to keep".

Princess Will
Marry Again —

}
SAN FRANCISCO, May 18.

Nineteen-year-old Princess Fat-|
hia of Egypt*said to-day she and
her commoner husband, Riad
Ghali, would be remarried in a
Moslem ceremony “within a
couple of days.”

Her mother, Queen Nazli, said
she meant “as soon as possible—
maybe this week, maybe next |

| week.” }

Princess Fathia was disowned
by King Farouk, her brother, after
marrying Ghali in a secrei civil

;eeremony on April 25,

She and her husband, a Coptic
Christian and Queen Nazli’s form-
er private secretary, have lived
apart since the ceremony, but
after the Moslem marriage, “they
will slip away on their honey-
moon,” the Queen said.

“Do not disturb” signs hung

\

; ;over the doors of their separate

hotel suites to-day as they made
telephone arrangements for their
honeymoon “probably in Hawaii.”

Under Moslem law any couple|
can marry simply by exchanging
vows but “Fathia wants a real
ceremony with a Moslem priest
and a few friends present,” the
Queen said.

She says they will be married
only once and she wants to re-
member it. She will wear a white
French gown — she looks very
iovely in white.

Princess Fathia said she had no
fear of infuriating King Farouk
any more. “He can punish us no
further,” she said. But she was
worried about “my beloved”.

I don’t know what the King will
do to him in Egypt, the King can
do anything. But please let us not
even think about it.

Ghali, whose diplornatic pass-
port has been withdrawn by the
Egyptian Government, has been
asked to leave the United States
by May 25. But Mr. Bruce ‘Bar-
ber, the Immigration Commis-
sioner in San Francisco, hinted to-
day he might be given more time if
he wanted it.

members that “when they are
compelled to declare a state ‘of

Though successive Chancellors

deaf ear to constant appeals for
the reduction of rum duty, Mr.
Smithers is convinced that the
British Treasury is losing money
while “a valuable West Indies

At 34 to 37 shillings for a bot-

Quiz Kids

There is an organisation in
Sydney which welcomes the
opportunity of rescuing peo-
ple .who .are .faced .with
mathematical problems which
apparently defy splution.

{iT is called the Mathematica:
Problems Bureau.

A group of enthusiasts in the
Mathematical Association oi
N.S.W. formed the bureau in 1939.
Since then it has solved more
than 200 abstruse mathematical
problems from all over Australia,
and boasts that it has never been
stumped.

Some problems are solved in
an hour or two, Some take days,
but once these men get their teeth
into a mathematical enigma its
secrets are soon laid bare.

The bureau's director, Mr. R. J.
Gillings farms the problems out
to members according to the
field of mathematics in which
they specialise.

They make no charge for their
services, which are available to
everybody.

People from all walks of life
consult the bureaus Some ques-
tions are academic, some of t!
puzzle variety, some related té
work or business.

One man proposed to use an
old circular “kiln for mushroom-
growing. The kiln was 204 feet
in diameter and a chord 17 feet
long cut off a segment of it,

The mushroomer asked the
bureau to work out for him the
area of the segment so that he
would be sure of spreading the
correct amount of mushroom
spawn.

A different kind of problem
came from a tennis club that was
planning a mixed doubles tour-
nament with five men and five
women players. Each man was to
play with each woman, and
against each other man and
woman, only once.

The club wrote to the bureau
asking how many matches would
have to be played. The answer,
10, was sent to the secretary
before the day of the tourrfiment.

Cespite the fact that he repre

Mr. Chang suggested that a

This suggestion caused a debate

Seek To Reform

Coroner Courts

* LONDON,

One of the most controversial
groups in British public lite are
the 246 coroners holding office in
England ands Wales.

They are independent judicial
officers not answerable to any gov-
ernment department—and they
scidem hesitate to assert their in-
dependence.

In the House cf Commons re-
cently, Home Secretary James
Chuter Ede said their pow-
er “might advantageously be
considered” by Parliament. But
with the parliamentary calendar
crowded, he saw little chance of
action “on this difficult and con-
troversial question in the near
future.”

The office of coroner dates
from the 12th century. While
their powers have been steadily
whittled down through the cen-
turies, they still have rights de-
nied to any judge or magistrate.

They can exclude the press or
public from their courts, admit
hearsay evidence and allow ques-

necessary back-+tions based on suggestions of guilt

which would be inadmissible in
a judicial court, Thes can—and
often do—make disparaging re-
marks about people not present
in court.

Recent Flare Up ‘

The most recent flare-up was in
April when Col. Innes Ware, a
Yorkshire coroner, excluded the
Press from an inquest on a society
woman found dead in her home.
He explained that reporters were
barred because relatives were
more likely to speak ig when
the Press was not present.

Ware’s action was vigorously
protested in the Press and in Par-
liament. But the Home Secretary
could only tell the Commons that
the High Court confirmed in 1827
that a coroner had discretion in
common law to hold an inquest
in private for reasons which
appeared to him “necessary and
proper.”

In this case, however, the coro-
ner himself later apologized for
“trespassing on the prerogatives
and privileges of the Press.” 4

The fight to reform Coroners’
Courts has been going on for more
than 20 years. Last year the Brit-
ish Medical Association recom-
mended that coroners be required
to have medical as well as legal
qualification and be barred from
making adverse comments on the
conduct ef people mentioned at
inquests,

‘On the latter point, W. Bentley
Purchase, Honorary Secretary of
the Coroners’ Society, was-in full

eement.
ae They fly off the handle,” Pur-
chase explained, “What we need
is a school for coroners. Some
who are appointed (by county and
borough councils) have no idea of
what they ought to do.”

The B.N.A. also recommended
that suicide verdicts should be that
the dead person “died by his own
-hand” without the usual “unsound
mind” or “balance of mind dis-
turbed” addition.—(C.P.)

FRENCH COMMUNISTS

ROCK THE BOAT

By Michael Gunningham

LONDON.

French Communists celebrated
May ‘Day in Paris chiefly by

onstrating for M. Jolgot-

rie, the recently dismissed
High Commissioner for atomic
energy. This was no _ surprise.
The mixed regret felt in France
at the removal of so distinguish-
ed a scientist was obvious ma-
terial for propaganda. But M.
Bidault could hardly leave this
professed Communist in office
much longer.

One of the “peace” slogans of
the party’s congress at Genne-
villiers last month announced:
“A true internationalist is a man
who is ready to serve the Soviet
Union unreservedly, unhesitat-
ingly, unconditionally”. As it is
sometimes put, the Soviet Union
is the Communist’s patrie, France

merely his pays.

The wave of Communist vio-
lence and agitation has rocked
the French ship of state since

January. Under the twin ban-
ners of “peace” (meaning sup-
port for Moscow) and _ higher

wages (immediate bonus and a
minimum wage) the Party has
organised a violent campaign of
sabotage and strikes against Am-
erican military aid to France and
the sending of French arms to
Indo-China. (As I write, Mr.
Acheson who is now in London

for the Three Powers’ Confer-
ence, after prelimin: talks with
M. Schuman in Paris, has an-

nounced that the U.S. will sup-
ply France with aid for Indo-

China).
Violent

This campaign might have been
more successful if it had been
less violent—if, that is, the Com-
munists had not overplayed
their hand. The war in Indo-
China is not popular and there
are many people in France, be-
sides the Communists, who dis-
approve of the Vietnam regime
of Bao Dai. On the other hand,
some sections of the French
working class are still underpaid
and regard the Communists as
the only true “proletarian” par-
ty. In demanding higher wages

for them, now that there is a
return to collective bargaining
the C.G.T., the French Com-
munist Union, is supporting a
cause that has been recognised
by the Prime Minister down-
wards. Political strikes in France

it might be added, are no long-
er likely to succeed without the
impetus of a genuine _ social
grievance.

But riotous Communist tactics
against M. Bidault’s anti-sabo-
tage bill in Parliament las*
March, during which the Presi-
dent of the Assembly twice call-
ed in the Garde Republicaine to
restore order, and disturbances
such as the recent clash at Brest
between demonstrators and po-
lice have brought public resent-
ment upon the Party. The na-
tional strike movement has, for
the moment, been defeated, with
the unions unable to obtain more
from the employers than the

*5 per cent wage increase offered

at the outset, A little before
the Easter recess a number of
Deputies tabled a motion asking
the government to deal more
firmly with the Communist men-
ace to the national security, The
dismissal of M. Joliot-Curie is
one of the “firm” steps that M.
Bidault has since taken, And in
4 recent speech he told the
rench people that the law
would be sternly enforced against
those who were seeking to un-
dermine the French State.

The Communists, though the
largest party in the Assembly,
with 183 seats, have, in the opin-~
ion of most observers, no chance
of coming to power at present.
In the elections of 1946 they ob-
tained nearly 5% million votes
out of an electorate of 24 million.
This was due partly to their
distinguished record in the Re-
sistance, partly because they
were widely regarded as a pro-
gressive movement and _ partly
because their seeming protest
against “government” appeals to
Frenchmen’s innate individual-
ism. Since then, the Party's in-
fluence has declined. Is this the
reason why French Communists,
probably on orders from Moscow,
have turned to more violent and
revolutionary methods — behind
the peace dove of the convert
Picasso?

Shades of Traicho Kostov

The trial and subsequent hang-
ing of Traicho Kostov last De-
cember and the great purge of
the inner ranks of the Bulgarian
Communist party that followed it
left a large gap to be filled in the
party’s Central Committee. It
was agreed that a congress would
be held on May 9 to elect new
members and discuss party tac-
tics and organisation. Now the
Central Committee has announc-
ed that the Congress will be
postponed—until June 8. They
say this is because the prelim-
inary round of party meetings in
the provinces has not yet been
completed. But this sounds very
much like an excuse, The more
likely reason, I think, is that the
Bulgarian Communist party is
still split over the issue that sent
Kostov to the gallows. The real
crime of the former Deputy Pre-
mier was that he dared to oppose
the economic subjugation of his
country by Soviet Russia.

Church and State

Since taking office as Premier
last autumn, Herr Grotewohl has
managea to crush all political
opposition to his Government in
Eastern Germany. I don’t sup-
pose he has found this difficult
—as the “dictator” of a Commu-
nist-dominated regime. It is
well-known that the “German
Democratic Republic east of the
Elbe, which the Russians set up
in answer to the West German
Government at Bonn, is a Com-
munist puppet state ruled—as
such puppets mostly are—from
Moscow. (Only last week Otto
Grotewohl and his deputy, Wal-
ter Ulbricht, were summoned to
the Russian Capital, probably to
be briefed in the speeches they
have since made in Berlin on
“Liberation Day’ (May 8), the
anniversary of Hitler’s collapse.)
Communists have ways of deal-
ing with their political oppon-
ents. But they are not, always,
so successful in their treatment
of the Church. Herr Grotewohl is
discovering that it does not pay
to browbeat the Clergy of Eas-
tern Germany.

When, just over a fortnight ago,
Dr. Dibelius, the Evangelical
Bishop of Berlin, circulated a
Pastoral Letter protesting against

the spread of materialism and
anti-religious activities in the
Eastern Zone, the East German
Premier upbraided him for at-
tacking “the Constitution, the
Government and the Rephblic.”
This did not deter the worthy
Evangelis:. He wrote a letter to

Herr Grotewohl demanding a
guarantee of the Church’s free-
dom as laid down in the October
Constitution, and that anti- re-
ligious propaganda in _ schools
should cease. Cardinal Prey-
sing, the Roman Catholie Bishop
of Berlin, wrote in simi-
Jar terms to the Premier the
same week, What was Herr
Grotewohl to do, in the face of
such Clerical determination? To
everyone's surprise, he changed
front and promised to meet the
demands of the Protestant and
Catholic leaders. At the same
time, he gave a general assurance
that “the Churches can fulfil
their work on the basis of the
Constitution.”

The only alternative for the
East German Premier was to
have started a new “Kultur-
kampf”, that struggle of the State
to subject the Church which Bis-
marek waged in Germany and
finally lost in 1878. but which
the Communist Government won
last year in Czechoslovakia. Ob-
viously, however, Herr Grote-
wohl cannot think this a matter
of practical polities at present.
He may reflect on recent events
in Poland where strong Catholic
resistance made the Warsaw
Government decide to compro-
mise temporarily with the Bish-
ops. He may ask himself whether
German religious feeling would
he, less weak. So the “Ger-
man mocratic Government” is
being cautious in its policy to-
wards the Church—for the mo-
ment. But as soon as it feels its
position in Eastern Germany to
be stronger, we must expect a
change of tactics. Conciliatory
gestures from Otto Grotewohl

Iron Curtain Club

An association of emigres,
called “The Iron Curtain Club”,
has just been formed in London.
It is composed of writers and
journalists exiled from countries
behind the iron curtain. The pur-
pose of this club is to achieve
a common understanding be-
tween members who hail from
states as widely differing in
eharacter and outlook as Latvia
and Hungary. One day, perhaps,
the Russian yoke will be over-
thrown. It is up to these “free”
journalists and writers to get
across to what are inherently
nationalistic peoples the idea of
a federation of Central and Eas-
tern Burope, the Baltic and the
Balkans, which enlightened emi-
gre leaders believe would be the
only safeguard for their countries
against a future aggressor.



New Beef Land

For Britain?
Secret Report By Experts

(By JOHN REDFERN)

A GREAT RANCHING ESTATE in Bechuanaland’s
Kalahari Desert will provide succulent steaks and joints
for the Sunday dinner in Britain, if the findings of experts
who have just surveyed the territory are accepted.

The official report on the empty,
unused Kalahari has gone to the
Colenial Development Corporation.
But it is a secret.

From the Bechuanaland Gov-
ernment secretary down, no one
dare say ¢ word.

The area earmarked for cattle
raising—50,000 square miles—-is
inhabited only by roving bush-
men, among whom a five-footer is
a tall man, and a few Europeans,
most of them in Government ser-
vice.

If the plans go through, in a
few years there will be Bechu-
analand beef on British tables
and less frorn the Argentine.
The planners are prepared to

treble the present beef production
of the Protectorate,

For that they need 750,000 cattle
in ranches each covering 640
square miles and holding 10,000
cattle.

Although this Kalahari is desert
on the maps it is not Beau Geste
country. Sweetgrass, excellent
food for African breeds, grows
five-feet high but is patchily dis-
tributed and needs nursing.

The rough tracks are too much
for ears. Lorries are essential.
The Bechuanaland police use
camels for the toughest part of
their bush beat of 275,000 square
miles.

The Kalahari is healthy, with
brilliant, mild winters. But rainfall

a
Oil

TWO MAJOR facts emerge from the
Government's long awaited announce-
ment on oil.

The first is that the Government of
Barbados have driven a hard bargain in
the interests of the people of Barbados.

The second is that if there is oil in Bar-
bados the Gulf Corporation will find it.

The first fact is obvious when it is
realised that under the terms of the pros-
pecting and concession licence the Gov-
ernment of Barbados retains rights over
three quarters of the island while obtain-
ing royalties of twelve and a half per cent
n all oil produced and rentals of one

dollar per year for every acre of land
under lease.





Furthermore after the comparatively
short period of 21 years the Government
of Barbados will have the right to increase
the royalty to 163 per cent.

There can be no doubt that these fav-
ourable terms are due in no small meas-
ure to the expert advice of the Albertan
Minister of Mines without whose assist-
ance the Government of Barbados would
have found it impossible to negotiate with
the competing oil Companies who wanted
to obtain rights for deep drilling in Bar-
bados.

Free of cost, to this island the Hon. N. E.
Tanner was loaned to Barbados by a
Province of Canada where the discovery
of oil has been hailed as fabulous and
where orderly exploitation of oil is in
marked contrast to the feverish inflation
which has in the past forced up costs of
living in so many other countries where
oil booms have occurred.

Writing of Alberta in Wednesday’s issue
of this newspaper the Toronto correspond-
ent of the greatest Conservative news-
paper organisation in the United Kingdom
wrote “The modern boom is not accom-
panied by the hysterical speculation which
followed the old gold rushes. It is a steady
growth, marked by the most restrained
and level headed investment in the history
of this great land of buried treasures.”

It is in this province of Alberta that
the Hon. N. E, Tanner is Minister of Mines.

Barbados can hardly ever have been
more fortunate in getting the services of
uch a man at no cost to the taxpayer of
this island. If there is oil in Barbados the
Gulf Corporation have promised to find it
and the activities of a company whose
operations are world wide leave no doubt
that the promise will be fulfilled.

The announcement that the Corporation
are contemplating an early start with geo-
physical operations (which include the
use of magnetometers on the ground and
in the air) is sign enough that so far as
the Gulf Corporation is concerned the
search for oil—which is said to have existed
in Barbados before it was discovered in the
United States—has begun, No one knows
whether there is oil in Barbados nor how
much oil will be produced, nor can anyone
forecast with certainty what changes will
result in the island, if oil is discovered.

Everyone is entitled to hope however,
that an island which imports 44 per cent
of its food from North America and which
finds it increasingly difficult to provide
economic employment for the heavy popu-
lation it must support will find oil in.suffi-
ciently large quantities to raise the mate-
rial standards of life throughout the com-
munity.
| In assessing the facts revealed by the
Government announcement that a pros-
pecting and concession licence has been
given to Gulf Oil Corporation, the import-
ant question to answer is “will Barbados
benefit most from the deal?”

On the facts, as announced, it is impos-
sible not to give the Government credit for
having driven a hard bargain in the inter-
_ ests of the people of the island. :

LONDON

May 24th is Empire Day. Fifty
years ago its founder, the Earl of
Meath, said the object of Empire
Day celebrations was “the out-
ward sign of an inner awakening
of the peoples who constitute the
British Empire to the serious
duties which lie at their door.”
He chose May 24th for these cele-
brations use it was Queen
Victoria’s birthday.

May 24th is also the anniversary
of the Linnean Society, and to
mark the occasion the Society will
make its annual award of the
Linnean Medal to an outstanding
naturalist. Their choice of re-
cipient could not have been more
appropriate for they have chosen
as this year’s medallist Mr. Henry
Nicholas Ridley, C.M.G., the, man
who founded the rubber industry
in Malaya.

Now in his 95th year, Mr.
Ridley is one of the last surviving
“Empire builders.” His “serious
duty” was plain to him when he
went to Singapore 62 years ago to
take over the position of Director
of the Botanical Gardens. He
saw what no other man had seen
— that this little-known colony
was a source of potential wealth
unrivalled by any other of our
possessions. Against great ad-
versity he founded the rubber in-
dustry which today earns more
dollars for’the Empire than any
other single industry in it.

But though rubber has earned
many fortunes for the men who
followed Mr. Ridley’s carly lead,
he himself is a man of modest
means, living quietly on the edge
of Kew Gardens, in London.

The story of his achievement is
all the more’ fascinating because
it is little known. It will not be
found in history books, nor among
the great success stories of the
last century. Yet it is a story
well worth telling.

Mr. Ridley was a young man of
32 when he arrived in Singapore.
He had heard of the attempts that
had already been made to grow
rubber trees in Asia. He knew,
for instance, that a number of
rubber seeds, sent from Kew, had
been planted in India, but had
perished during the cold season.
He knew too, that rubber plants,
also from Kew, had been planted
in Ceylon, but had been given up
as a commercial proposition.

He had heard of experiments
carried out on rubber trees in the
Singapore Botanical Gardens.
Twenty-two seedlings, a few from
the same batch that had been sent
to Kew from Brazil, had been
planted there. When Mr. Ridley
first saw them, they had multiplied.
There were now about a thousand
rubber trees in the Gardens, but
they were overgrown with second-
ary jungle. "

The trees were there, bursting
with latex, but nobody knew how
to get it out. Stripping the tree
of its bark, as they did in Brazil,
yielded a certain amount of rub-
ber, but it also killed the tree.
It didn’t need a botanist to tell
that this method was unsatisfac-
tory. nl

Between spells of watching a
troop of monkeys which had
settled in the Gardens—he once
witnessed the murder of the elder-
ly king of the troop by two young
monkeys—and observing for the
first time with human eyes the
behaviour of a colony of ants,
which made nests from leaves by
sewing them together with the

thread from their larvae, Mr. Rid- plants scattered all over the Japanese.

‘John Bull's Tummy, Shrinks

LONDON

Overseas tourists are tucking in
heartily now that Britain has be-
come an “eat-what-you-like”
nation, in the Restaurants at least.
But ten years of austerity has
shrivelled the tummy of John
Bull.

There were fears that the
natives would panic the rest-
aurants and hotels with demands
for “square meals” once the 70-
cent ceiling on meals was removed
to garner more tourist dollars.
These apprehensions have proved
groundless.

The well-upholstered bee f-
eaters of Merrie Englande are en-
titled to a full turn in their graves
—for their modern counterparts
are no “trenchermen”—even when
the victuals are there.

Ten years of meagre rations nas
killed the habit of heavy eating.
The British can no longer ply a
good knife and fork.

Even the “curiosity” rush which
followed the lifting of restrictions
on meals in catering establish-

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

They Called Him Mad

Hecause He Said Rubber Could Be Grown In Malaya

By RONALD BOXALL

MR. RIDLEY

ley concentrated on the problem
ot tapping the rubber trees.

When I spoke to him at his home
this week, he recalled those early
days. “I was popularly known as
‘Mad Ridley’ or ‘Rubber Ridley’
he said, “and one Governor, Sir
Frank Swettenham, actually repri-
manded me for wasting my time
on the plants.”

But he disregarded the scorn
and criticism of his superior Gov-
ernment officers, and after months
of. experimenting at last succeed-
ed in tapping a tree and extract-
ing latex. He was the first man
to discover that a rubber tree
could be tapped in a certain way
one day and that the wound would
heal and the tree could be tapped
again the next day—with even
better results. He invented the
herring-bone system of tapping,
which is still used today.

The trees had to be tapped early
in thé morning before the mois-
ture, which it had absorbed during
the night, evaporated in the heat
of the day. His native assistants
soon became expert tappers, and
one was even able to tap two hun-
dred trees in the hour between
dawn and the time the latex
ceased to flow.

At first he used cigarette tins
to collect the latex, and one cube
of rubber thus obtained was ex-
hibited in 1889 in Singapore—the
first sample of cultivated rubber
ever shown in public.

Later it occurred to him that
the rubber would dry better if it
were made into thin sheets. There
were no funds, available to buy
equipment so he used ordinary
enamel plates. But eventually his
assistant, who was a keen photo-
grapher, obtained a large photo-
graphic developing tray—a rarity
in those days—and with this Mr.
Ridley produced the first sheet of
rubber. One of these sheets was
sent to England where ex-
perts pronounced it to be of first-
class quality.

Mr. Ridley thus proved to his
own satisfaction that rubber culti-
vation had tremendous commercial
possibilities, but it was not quite
so easy to convince other people,
Wherever he went, he produced
a handful of rubber seeds from
the stock which he constantly
earried in his pockets, and dis-
tributed them to District Officers
and Residents to plant near their
houses. His object in doing this
was to have a good supply of

ments on May 1 lasted only a day
or two in most restaurants and
then died down completely.

Festive boards proved too much
for the natives. They had lost
the manly technique of gorman-
dizing.

Even though thousands of free
dentures have been issued since
the National Health Service was
inaugurated in July 1948, snappy
mastication was a lost art.

Luxury establishments through-
out mid-town London reported
only “moderate” increases in the
amount of food consumed by each
customer.

The only difference seemed to
be a demand for delicacies and
succulent tid-bits that restaurants
could not previously provide under
a 70-cent all-in charge.

Smoked salmon, caviare and
other tantalizing dishes have now
come out from under the counter.

London restaurants and _hoteTs
meanwhile are jammed with the
first rush of tourists and buyers
for the British Industries Fair.







Peninsula in readiness for the
great demand which he estimated
would come about 1900 with the
development of motor transport.

“Many years later”, Mr. Ridley
told me, “I found by the resthouse
at Tapah, Perak, some very large
trees, then owned by a Malay who
obtained two. piculs of rubber a
year from OMe of them. I found
that this house had formerly been
the District Officer’s residence and
that undoubtedly he had been one
of those to whom I gave seeds and
induced to plant them near his
house.”

Mr. Ridley tried in vain to in-
spire European planters with some
of his enthusiasm for rubber, but
it was not until 1895, when Mr.
R. C. M. Kindersley and Mr.
D. C. P. Kindersley took up rub-
ber planting in the Federated
Malay States and Mr. Tan Chay
Yan in Malacca, that he succeeded.

Rubber, valued at 2s. 8d. per Ib.,
was sent to England in 1896 from
the Botanical Gardens in Singa-
pore, and in 1897 rubber from
Perak, valued at 2s. 8d. to 3s. per
lb., was sent home by Mr. Derry.
The latter also sent a _ large
quantity in 1899, valued at 3s.710d.
per lb., and Mr. Curtis sent rubber
from Penang, valued at 3s. 3d. per
Ib., in 1898. This was the begin-
ning of the industry which today
earns millions of pounds every
year.

The situation now began to alter.
Coffee, which had been until then
practically the only agricultural
product of the Malay Peninsula,
began to disappear,* and rubber
seed was so much in demand that
it became extremely difficult to
supply them in sufficiently large
quantities. Meanwhile, the whole
staff of the Botanical Gardens in
Singapore were occupied in in-
structing planters, dpaling with
diseases of the rubber tree, im-
proving methods of smoking and
curing raw rubber, and shipping
seeds and seedlings to planters, not
only “in the Maluy Peninsula, but
all over the world.













Mr, Ridley’s work was recog-
nised by the British Government
in 1912, when he was made a
C.M.G. He left Malaya in The
same year.

Although he can truly be called
the father of the Malayan rubber
industry, Mr. Ridley has lived to
see that industry face its first
serious threat from a rival pro-
duct. That product — Amercian
synthetic rubber—valuable as it
was in wartime, need never have
been necessary, he believes, if the
Americans had developed a natural
rubber industry in or near Brazil,
from where the seeds of the first
‘trees planted in the Far East
originated.

Still active at 94 and as mental-
ly agile asa man of half his years,
Mr, Ridley today lives amid the
souvenirs of his travels to many
unexplored parts of the world. He
has compiled a diary, setting out
in the minutest detail every aspect
of his work as a botanist and
naturalist, and still keeps it up to
date.

But although he is surrounded
by the evidente of a lifetime spent
in the service of science, Mr, Rid-
ley’s most treasured possession is
a framed colleetion of signatures
of forty prominent Dutch scien-
tists, which was presented to him
on his ninetieth birthday in 1945,
in the hectic days just after Java
had been liberated from the

lishments, have been prepared

ment of food restrictions.

in London alone some 400 first-
class chefs could find employ-

Radio Prizes Prove

GIVE-AWAY radio programmes are all
the rage in the United States. But for two

peoplé the riches of a prize brought misery

and worry.

Just before bed-time on the night of Janu-
ary 9, John Oaks, of Sparrow Point, near
Baltimore, Maryland, was listening to the
Stop-the-Music programme. On this pro-
gramme, a “mystery melody” had been
played for days.

A rich prize awaited the listener, tele-
phoned at random, who could name not only
the tune being played at the moment, but
the “mystery melody” too.

Mr. Oaks’ telephone rang.

In his excitement, he almost dropped it

when a voice said: “Mr. Oaks? You are about,
Mr. Oaks, to have the opportunity of a life-
time. Can you identify the name of the tune
we are playing now?”

Mr. Oaks’s niece, in for dinner that night,

said “It’s Maybe You’ll Be There.” He gave}
the name. Instantly the radio fell silent as a
voice yelled: “Stop the Music!”

“And now,” said the announcer, “if you

bond and many, many other things—alto-
gether worth $30,500.”

The question followed: “What is the title

Mr. Oaks knew that, too. His wife had

People he had never heard of called and

asked for money. The postman brought his
letters by the sackful.

Most told hard-luck stories and asked for

money. Charities wrote by hundreds.

Then lorries started arriving with the

gifts. They filled his small house so that he
could hardly move. His wife, in the midst of
the excitement, had a heart attack.

Sued By Niece

The income tax man wrote to Mr. Oaks

warning him to keep careful record of all
the gifts and that they would be taxable, as};
unearned income. An accountant friend con-
firmed the worst, the tax would be more
than his annual salary.

In despair, Mr. Oaks started giving the

gifts away. Some he sold. Finally he kept
only $2,400 worth. But still the tax man said
he had received $30,500 worth, and would
get a bill for taxes on that. He almost had a
heart attack himself.

Then his niece filed suit for half of the

A Woman's House

In California, Mrs. Mary Brod won a $12,500

house “absolutely free” and now wishes she
had never heard of it. It was on a concrete

foundation.

She had to buy land to put it on, then

move it. This cost $3,000, plus a bond for
$2,000 she had to put up to guarantee that it
would comply with local housing laws.

Then came new foundations, sewers, water,

income.

gas and electricity connections, a garage,
landscaping to conform with the local zoning
rules, and a tax bill for $3,000 on unearned

Now the house is on the market. “It has
taken every cent of our savings,” said Mrs.
Brod. “We can’t afford to live in it now. All
we can hope for is to sell it and get our
money back.”—L.E.S.

To the Editor. The Advocate

SIR,—“A number of persons in
the island, keenly interested in the
public welfare, are becoming much
concerned about the rapidly in-
creasing secularisation of life in
general amongst us, and the
diversion of the Sabbath (or
Lord’s Day) from its proper and
most valuable use for Divine
worship, religious instruction and
moral culture. They therefore
beg to invite the community to
think afresh and very earnestly
concerning the matter.

Especially they wish to ask
parents and guardians of children
and young people to see that they
do not miss the help and benéfits
provided for them by the Sunday
Schools and the Churches. It is
exceedingly important for them
and through them for the future
of the whole community, tat
they be nurtured and trained in
Christian principles and ways of
living and Sunday is the special
opportunity for such vital assist-
ance.

It is very noteworthy that at the

Lodge School Speech Day
March last the three specially ex-
perienced and wise persons who
took part, the Headmaster, the
Bishop and H.E. the Governor,
joined to emphasise the supreme
importance of the spiritual basis
of the good life, and of instruction
in harmony with that great fact.

No Know All
To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Please refer to Sunday’s
Advocate (May 14) Page 4, “Side-
lights on Sport” starting from
the second paragraph of the sec-
tion “More Kudos”.

The writer of the column is
attacking Mr. Eytle’s “strange
observations on the West Indies
team” given over the BBC (Sun-
day, May 6, re Yorkshire match).

“Eytle found fault with Rama-

dhin’s bowling, with Walcott’s
wicket-keeping, with the West
Indies’ fielding among other

in things”.

Thus writes the writer
of the sports column. And he
goes on to object strongly to Mr.
Eytle’s comments, calling him a
“self-appointed know-all”, and
pointing out that Eytle “cannot
claim the honour of having rep-
resented either British Guiana in
intercolonial cricket or the West
Indies in international cricket.”

All of which is very bad form.
I heard the summary “Calling the
West Indies,” Eytle said that
Ramadhin was bowling short of a
length; he said that Walcott's
wicket-keeping was much ~ better
than it was in the match vs. Wor-
cestershire (and described and
praised one of his catches); and
as for the West Indies fielding, he
said that our men. were quick to
the ball, ran it hard when neces-
sary, but ‘that their throw back
to the wicket-keeper left much to
ba desired.

He also said that the Yorkshire
side looked better in the field—
mere businesslike, more up to

Test standard in their fielding
than the West Indies did. (We
who saw the M.C.C. here, know

what he means)

But never once did Mr. Eytle
give me the impression that he
was a “know-all” (in fact, his
lack of experience did not allow
him to get over quick, clear, con-
fident impressions, which are so
important to ball-by-ball com~_
mentary-starved West Indians),
but he did see the game, and his
opinions did not differ to any
marked extent from other radio
reports, anyway.

Finally, I must object to the
insinuation that because Ernes.
Eytle did not pity intercolonial
cricket, he is not in a position to
criticise the game. Such an idea
—and this holds good for the
whole field of criticism—is false,

Road Now

To The Editor The Advocate

SIR,—The public have been
hearing for many years that Gov-
ernment contemplated building a
road from Three Houses along the
Coast to St. Andrew, in order to
help the unemployment situation,
now that the Harriman Company
are here with all their equipment
wouldn’t it be advisable to get a
quotation from them for the erec-

tion of a wide road along this area.
The scheme could be carried out
by the raising of a loan if the
present surplus is not sufficient.
In order to meet the interest and
sinking fund, a toll of a shilling
for each vehicle and a three pence
for each passenger passing over
the road could be charged, this
is what is done in many large
countries,

Hurricane Relief

The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—During the election cam-
paign of 1948, I was promised the
“L, R and the seven stars” but
up to the present I have neither
seen or heard anything. Election
will soon be here again.

During the period of August 31
and September Ist 1949, I suffer-
ed the loss of certain household
articles in the flooded area of Vine
Street, which up to this present
moment I am still unable to re-

place.

What has happened to our
representatives in the House of
Assembly? I think they should




be more ready and willing to give


better service since they are paid
a handsome salary. What has
happened to the “Hurricane Fynd”,
as well as the “Advocate Relief
Fund?”

RESIDENT.

Worship

The Editor The Advocate,

SIR,—I am very glad to see a
response given on behalf of the
Jewish Cemetery in Synagogue
Lane, and I make another appeal
that the building on these grounds
become a place of worship for the
Jews. Many of this sect are
anxious to know if this will be so,
so kindly enlighten readers on this
subject.

This is indeed holy ground, and
could be made a place of intsrest
to visitors and I hope soon to see
fhose hideous walls replaced by
nicely carved iron rails and gates
for privacy and respect to the
dead, and to keep out intruders.
“They sleep—the dear dead sleep
Hoping their loved ones’ footsteps

may softly creep
Around their graves! Safe watch

to keep”.

Deaths On
The Road

I SPITE OF warnings and
prosecutions, motorists _ still
continue to speed, but on the other
hand they are being caught daily
by Police Speed Traps, and heavy
fines- are being imposed. At the
City Police Cyurts yesterday two
such offenders were fined £5 and
£3 each.

Colonel R. T. Michelin, Com-
missioner ot Pouce, in an interview
with the Advocate yesterday said,
“Our aim is not to bring drivers
before the Police Court but to
improve driving along these nar-
row roads.”

He said that so far four people
were killed this year as a result
of road accidents and the Police
want to prevent “deaths on the
road”.

He pointed out that the speed
traps are placed along different
roads at various times. =
A PICTURE published recently

in the Advocate showed a
Police Constable about to cross the
Victoria Bridge roadway instead
of using the footpath.

The Advocate was informed yes-
terday that this Constable was not
breaking the Law, but on the
other hand was enforcing the Law
by directing pedestrians to use the
footpath.

‘oo POLICE ARE taking steps

against shopkeepers who fail
to exhibit the Shop Orders of 1946
which sets out the hours of duties
for the employees with early and
late closing days

So far 26 shopkeepers were
charged on Wednesday and 17
yesterday with failing to exhibit
these orders and what is interest-
ing to note is that seven shop-
keepers were prosecuted yesterday
for not closing their shops at the
time stated under this Act.

The Commissioner said yester-
day that other shopkeepers whe
disregard this Act will also be
prosecuted.

RUMPTON STREET, which
was only recently made a
main thoroughfare, is now show-
ing signs of wear and tear caused
by the heavy vehicles using the
road daily.

A lorry loaded with sugar was
turning into Crumpton Street from
Roebuck Street on Tuesday morn-
ing when its left rear wheel force:t
in a part of the covering of the
gutter, leaving a dangerous hole.

The lorry continued on its way
but a Police Constable in the dis-
trict kept guard over the hole
and directed other vehicles that
were turning the corner. Soon
after @ red flag was placed over
the spot and repairs are now
being carried out.

Shortly afterwards the covering
of a manhole at the corner of
Crumpton Street and Constitution
Road broke in when a lorry, also
loaded with sugar, passed over it.
The new covering was brought
the same day and the corner was
again safe to traffic.

Labourers are also doing some-
thing to the centre of Crumpton
Street.

HE WEST INDIAN Knitting

Mill at Coleridge Street is still
awaiting the arrival of more ma-
chinery. When thig happens the
scope of the factory will be widen-
ed and a greater variety of mate-
rials will be produced.

When full scale operations start,
the factory will be working a 24-
hour day and this will mean more
employment for Barbadians.

Three new machines have re-
cently been added to the Sewing
Department and another batch of
girls were brought in.

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



Gets Less

From Emigrants

THE RETURNS from emigration by which Barbados
benefited immensely during the last five or six years are

now’ dwindling.

From Curacao remittances in 1949 reach-

ed over one million dollars but already 1950 shows a drop

to $28,000 per month.

From the United States the re
mittances in 1949 amounted to
$77,707.20 and this is. showing
signs of a reduction consequent on
reduction of the number of men,

Since 1944 when the scheme
started there were about 8,000
men sent to the United States.
Some of these went more than
once and to date there are less
than 500 men in U.S.A,

The three million) dollars does
not include those amounts which
were remitted privately or brought
back by the emigrants.

Recent communications show
that efforts on the part of the
local Government to get a quota
for emigration to U.S.A. have not
been successful.

The progress Report of the
Workers’ Savings Branch show
that remittances amounted to
$3,045,981.33 and that the dis-
bursements are as follows;

DISBURSED:

Remitted to B,W.LC.L.O. $ 1,983.64
Refunded to Barbados
Government 71,255.14
Paid to Returned Workers 2,240,413.64
Paid to Workers’ Allot-
tees 493,251.14
Paid Court Dues 584.00
$2,807 ,487.56
Balance (B.W.I. Funds) 238,493.77
$3,045,981.33

But emigration to U.S.A. is not
the only scheme from which Bar-
bados has benefited within recent
years, Aruba and. especially
Curacao have supplied work for
Barbadians and there are still
hundreds in the Dutch colonies
Remittances increased steadily for
some years until the total for
1949 amounted to $1,447,483.37
with a smal] amount of this going
to St. Lucia and St. Vincent. Now
it might be reduced.

Already for the year 1950 the
remittances for the first three
months amount to the tidy sum
of $86,811.77 at an average of
over $28,000 per month.

There are 328 Barbadians in
Curacao employed particularly as
seamen and in other capacities,

In Aruba the field is not so
wide and even now recent tend-
encies show a reduction in the
cmployment of Barbadians ac-
cording to the bulletin of the
Caribbean Commission,

“Gradual reduction in the labour
force has been taking place in the
oil refineries of Aruba since the
latter part of 1949. In most cases
employees leaving the company
have not been replaced, and, in
addition, recruited labour is being
released as the work for which it
was hired is finished.

The Future

In an attempt to see into the
future of employment, the Presi-
dent of one of the companies sug-
gested the following general in-
iuences as affecting the situatign:
(1) am increased flow of oil from
the Middle East and elsewhere
which resulted in the building of
refineries in Europe and other
places during and after the war;
(2) an overbuilding in the whole
petroleum industry to help meet
the huge demands for oil products
immediately following the war;
(3) Canada’s producing more of
her oil supplies; (4) general in-

creased competition all along
the line.
These things, the President

stated, make it likely that the
crude runs for 1950 will be lower
than the average for 1949. Sugh
an occurrence may bring about tne
shut down of more processing
units which will, in turn, require
less personnel and less mainten
ance, It is hoped that a gradual
reduction in forces can be made
through the usual resignations and
other terminations of employment.
It appears, he added, that this will
not be sufficient, and additional
layoffs may be necessary through-
out the year.

ATATURK FORMED

MODERN
Lecture By Mr.

TURKEY
Risely Tucker

TURKEY "TODAY is a vastly different place from

what it was in 1923.
geograpHfically between the

To-day it is a country which, lying

east and the west, has set its

face towards progress along western lines, and is western
in outlook from the hats worn by the people, to the eman-

cipation of women.

This was stated in the lecture '*—

given at the British Council on
Wednesday night by Mr. Risely
Tucker, British Council Represen-
tative in Barbados. Mr. Tucker
told how the man who had started
the Turkish War of Independence
in 1919 had, after becoming presi-
dent, introduced sweeping reforms
that had transforimed his country.
He was Mustapha Kemal Ataturk,
and he did this transformation in
just 15 vears.

Between East ana West

Mr. Tucker began by reminding
his listeners that Turkey lies be-
tween the east and the west, and
that one thought of Turkey as be-
longing to the east or the west ac-
cording to the direction from
which one approached it. For ex-
ample, he said, people leaving
England and going to Turkey
thought of it as an eastern coun-
try. On the other hand, his wife
and he had gone there after living
for a long time in Moslem coun«
tries in the Middle East, and to
them it seemed like going back
to Englfind.

Mr. Tucker after telling of the
main geographical features of
Turkey went on to inform those
present of the variety of climates
found there. Climate ranged from
the absolutely tropical one in the
south, to the arctic winters in Ana-
‘olia_and towards the Black Sea.

The speaker then gave the
romantic story of how the Turks,
centuries ago, came over in
various ways from Central Asia,
and captured what was then
Constantinople. He told how
they looked on the Crusaders
Shey built up an empire that
as terrible barbarians and how
went right through the Middle
East, along the north coast of
Africa; how they penetrated well
into the Balkans, and more
than once laid siege to Vienna.
Next came a story of reverses
for the Turks; the story of the loss
of their Empire in the first world
war, and the occupation of their
country by Britain, France and
Greece. But out of those reverses
sprang the modern Turkey, Mr.
Tucker’s lecture showed. For
about 1919, strong man of Turkey,
Mustapha Kemal Ataturk by cour-
age and bluff raised an army, lib-
erated his country and then set
cut to re-organise it,

Ataturk

He did a thorough teorganising
job, and made himself deeply
loved and admired by his country-
men.

Ataturk decided that his coun-
try must become a_ western
country, and that it must prog-
ress. He decided that Turkey
should forget all thoughts of
empire, and develop the home-
land. He abolished the Sultanate
and himself refused the crown;
but he became the first president
of the Turkish Republic. He broke
the grip of the Moslem Religion
on the government of the coun-
try, and made Turkey into a lay
state, safeguarding, however, the
freedom of religion provided that
there was no attempt by any
religion to proselytise or inter-
fere in the government.

Ataturk, in addition, brought
in many reforms aimed at
breaking traditions which would
hinder development along west-
ern lines. Such reforms in-
cluded the abolition of religious
schools and religious courts;
making illegal the wearing of
the fez or turban, and insisting
that western hats be worn:
introduction of the international
ealendar and clock; the aboli-
tion of polygamy: introduction
of a civil code along the lines
of the Swiss Code.

The reformer, Ataturk also
provided for the complete eman-

the e of the old A



mint Seen

illegal, replacing it with the
Roman script, so that relations
between the Turks and Europe-
ans could be facilitated, He
brought in a land law and _ broke
up the big estates, giving the land
to peasant proprietors.
Reform Drive

Ataturk, continuing his drive
at reform, compelled families to
take family names and abolished
all titles and military decorations
except the Medal of the War of
Independence, which, incidentally,
is worn on the right breast and
not on the, left.

Mr. Tucker then described
Turkey’s form of government as
being for all practical purposes
a one-party “government, The
presidert. is elected first to the
National Assembly and then to
the Grand National Assernbly.

Ataturk died in 1938, and was
succeeded by President Inonu,
a clever man and less radical
in his reforms than Ataturk,
whose principal assistant he had
been. This new president was
described by Mr. Tucker as the
ideal one for the Turkey of to-
day.

Mr. Tucker talked about mod-
ern Turkey’s educational system
in which there is complete equal-
ity for boys and girls, Co-educa-
tion is practiced, and education
is nominally compulsory and
quite free right up to university
level. Technical schools are
being founded at the rate of two
or three a year. Agriculture and
industry are being developed
along modern lines.

Mobilised Since 1939

The forces of the country had
been mobilised ever since 1939,
Mr. Tucker told the audience,—
informing those who did not
know, and reminding the others,
—that it was a British navel
mission which years ago had
organised the Turkish Navy. Th?
result was that the British and
Turkish Navies have much :n
common, even the names of fix-
tures on the ships.

Mr. Tucker described the
Turkish soldier as being very
tough. Telling of the Turkish
character as he saw it, he said
they were a very honest people.
They were, in fact, too proud w
be dishonest. He said they
were self-reliant and frugal in
life, and extremely patriotic,
but charming in their treatment
of any foreigners whom they
trusted,

Turkish women had _ reacted
finely to their emancipation, said
Mr. Tucker, and took their part
in public life without forgetting
the art of being charming in
their homes. Because of _ that,
there was no militant feminism
in Turkey.

Mr. Tucker said that the Brit-
ish Council establishment in
Ankara was a large one. There
were during his time, over 20
London appointed officers and

over 50 Council employees alto-
gether. The budget in 1944 was
2300,000.

would necessitate the careful
consideration of Government be-
fore granting the necessary mo-
ney, the Director of Highways
and Transport told the “Adyvo-
cate” yesterday.

He said that he did consider
the erection of a “Please Cross

Here” sign from the Public
Works entrance to the present
pathway a necessity. and that

this would definitely be done.
Immediately after the putting
up of other signs in the City, full
attention, he said, would be giv-
en to “crossing” signs for pe-

destrians wherever they were
necessary.
The Director said that the

erection of “Road Direction”
signs about the island had now
greatly improved on account of
the availability of the necessary
material. The extension of ‘“Ma-
jor Road” signs was a recognised
necessity too, he considered, and
an effort was now being made

to devise a cheaper sign than
that at present in use.
Work in Hand

Asked about the annual Road

Construction Programme, he saic
that the work was in hand, and
in some places had already start
ed. As regards the Harmon)
Hall bend to which attention had
but recently been drawn in the
House of Assembly, he said that
estimates had been submitted to
Government, and their decision
was now being awaited,
Referring to the new bus
stand, the Director said that it
seemed to be working quite sat-

Tax-Free Holidays
Should Attract
Foreign Capital

Trinidad is making a ‘great
effort to encourage foreign capi-
tal and so establish additional
industries in the colony in fur-
therance of their policy of in-
dustrial development, Mr. Solo-
mon Hochoy, Commissioner of

“Advocate” yesterday.

Mr. Hochoy arrived on Sunday
by B.W.LA. for the Labour OM-
cers’ Conference, and is staying
at the Hastings Hotel.

He said that in order fo give
effect to the policy of encourag-
ing foreign investment, the Gov-
ernment had enacted legislation
to aid pioneer industries. The
chief provision of the Ordinance
was a tax-free holiday period,
which should prove to be a great
attraction to foreign capital, The
manufacture of glass bottles had
already been declared a pioneer
industry.

Trinidad offered great possibil-
ities for development by reason
of the fact that fuel and elec-
dricity were easily available and
again, the availability of deep-
water harbour and inland trans.
facilities and its geo-

graphical position, which were
great assets.
Mr. Hochoy said that living

conditions in Trinidad still con-
tinued to be subject to external
forces over which the colony
had no control, in common with
all other British West Indian
territories,

The reduced value of the pound
and restrictions on dollar spend-
ing had tended to make living
conditions, perhaps, a little more
difficult, There was still heavy

the provisions of the Rent Re-
striction Ordinance have tended
to curb inflations in rental levels.
Agreement

He said that after weeks of
negotiations, the Oilfields Em-
ployees’ Association and the Oil
fields Workers' Union coneluded
on Wednesday last week, an
agreement to take the place of
one just expired. The details had
not yet been released, but for-
mal ratification of the agreement
was due to take place on Thurs-

The House Met
In *«‘Rum-Shops”’

THE BARBADOS HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY used to
meet in “Rum-shops” in the 17th Century, Mr. Lionel L.
Hutchinson, Librarian of the House of Assembly, told the
Leeward Cultural Association

in Speightstown last night.

@ Mr. Hutchinson was giving an
introduction to the House ol
Assembly and during his speech
said:

In those days the Assembly was
not blessed with a specific cham-
ber, and taverns,—or if we
prefer in this age to call them
“Rum-shops” we are welcome,-—
were the main venue for meet-

ings, until Sir Johnathan Atkins
who came as Governor in 1674
publicly criticized meetings in
taverns. He also took the oppor-
tunity to remind the Legislature
that he was truly in sympathy
with the Good Shepherd, since

he as* Governor had no where to
lay his head.

Sometimes the House met at
private residences, Freemasons
lodges .or at the Clerk’s House.
The cost of refreshment for the
members was usually defrayed
from the excise on liquor,

However, about 1714 it seemed
customary for the Assembly to
meet at Pilgrims, the residence of

All Ready For Rain

PEDESTRIANS in the City area
were yesterday equipped with
their rain coats, but there were no
hard showers in this area. Several
women were seen with plastic
coats or head ties of the same ma-
terial which were placed either in
their baskets or carried over the



hand.

Cyclists carried coats over the
handles of their vehicles, while
passengers getting on and off the
buses were also prepared for any
showers. About midday a few
light showers fell in the city area
but were soon finished.

Governor William Sharpe, and
after differences of, opinion
between the Governor and As-

sembly, a new venue had to be
found. In 1730 when the Town
Hall was built, the Assembly
found accommodation awaiting in
this building. At its inception,
the Town Hall housed the judi-
ciary, along with the Legislature,
and prisoners. In 1837 the
influx of lawbreakers crowded
out the Legislature and the judi-
ciary, which were transferred to

the opposite building, until the
opening of Glendairy Pirison
allowed these important bodies

to resume in the Town Hall

On the morning of 14th Febru-
ary, 1860, a destructive fire took
toll of Bridgetown claiming the
business premises of John Gill, a
druggist on the west side of High
Street, and after the fire, (and
it was not possible to “save John
Gill and let the Ice House burn”)
the government wisely purchased
the Trafalgar site and erected the

Public Buildings in 1872, whien
were opened in 1874, giving birth
c ‘ne present chambers of the

House of Assembly.



Technique For

MR. ALLAN I. MORAIS, Senior
Assistant Statistician of the Cen-
tral Bureau of Statistics, Jamaica,
is now in Barbados discussing with
the officers attending the Labour
Conference, the establishment of
a standard technique in the com-
pilation of presentation and inter-
pretation of cost of living on re-
tail price indices in the West In-
dies,

Mr. Morais arrived on Monday
evening by B.W.1.A. and is stay-
ing at the Hastings Hotel.

Methods

He said that he had already dis-

cussed with the members of the

delegation, the methods now oper-
ating in their various territories.
Problems in that connection
had been outlined in detailed
discussions and recommendations

would) be handed down to the
Conference on the extent of change
if any, that might be desirable.

Mr, Morais recently returned
from England where he was the
Jamaica's representative at the

before declaring today, the

iwo wickets before the close.

They were then 215 behind.

Spartan
Defeat

Rovers

Spartan defeated Pickwick-
Rovers by the odd goal in three
at Kensington yesterday evening
to retain their lead in the First
Division Football line up.

The game was fairly fast
throughout. The Spartan for-
wards combined better and thei:

defence offered a stubborn re-
sistance at all times, They also
kept the Rovers players wel!
marked and their long passing
was accurate

The Park team should have
ccred many. more goals but
Boyce on their left wing failed
to make use of many opportuni-
ties when he was unmarked.
Rovers too missed a few oppor-
tunities.

ro .

First Half

Spartan scored their two goals
in the first half. The first was
punched in by Desmond John-
son, their inside right while
Keith Walcott scored the second

with a powerful shot from well
outside the goal area.

The lone goal for Pickwick-
Rovers was scored by Taylor,
their inside right, in the second
half. ;

The touch off was taken by

Spartan who defended the north
goal. The Kensington boys were
first to attack. Wilkes beat his
way down the left wing but the
Spartan backs tackled him and
cleared before. he could shoot
goalwards.

Outside

Soon after Robinson, on the
left wing for Rovers, got hold of
the ball and took a shot. Gib-
bons in the back line for Spartan
stopped the ball and pushed it
outside, Wilkes kicked a corner
but the Spartan defence soon had
the ball mid-field.

A few minutes later Spartan
opened their account when Boyce,
after receiving a pass from one
of the halves, ran down the left
wing and centred. The ball
struck the right upright and re-
bounded into play. Johnson, who
was boring though, pounced on
the ball and shot hard into the
left corner of the nets while
Hill, the Rovers custodian, was
out of position.

The second
came without

goal for Spartan
any fuss, Keith
Walcott who was well outside
the goal area, took a hard shot
which went into the left corner
of the nets while Hill stood gaz-
ing at the cross bar.

At half time the score was un-
changed, Spartan were first to
attack on resumption and nearly
seored their third goal when
Chase centred. Walcott received
the ball and took a “powder-
puff” shot. Hill pushed the ball
back into play and Trotman, who
was standing in front the goal,
had a try but the ball struck the
left upright and rebounded. f

A few minutes later a melee
took place in the Rovers goal
area but Mike Foster somehow
got hold of the ball and cleared.

Bowen, in the Spartan back
line was well up and the ball
went over his head. Taylor ran
through and beat Harris with a
high shot to open the account
for his team.

Rovers nearly got the equaliser
about five minutes before the
blow-off, A free kick was award-
ed and Foster punched the ball
to Wilkes. Before Wilkes could
settle the ball Wells ran across
and took a lusty kick which went
high over the cross bar.

The teams were;

Spartan; Harris, Gibbons, Bow-
en, Cadogan, Haynes, Chase,
Johnson, Walcott, Trotman, Boyce
and Gittens.

hit nine tours, and May shafted

less than an hour for Cambridge

Che tourists got a wicket with
the tenth ball of the day, left-

_aer fimmel edging a catch to

wicket-keeper. But May and
S.cvenson maintained an average
«coring rate of about 80 runs an
hour and added 84 in fifty five
minutes. Stevenson hit nine fours
six of which were scored in his
first 27 runs,

Of 145 overs bowled by the
tourists, only 13 were maidens.

W.1. Batting

Warr and Waitt bowled at a fin:
pace when the West Indies went
in, and both Christiani and Stoll-
meyer enjoyed an early escape.
Stollmeyer, who took twenty
minutes to open his score, had
made only two when he was
dropped at first slip off Waitt
and Christiani, who was more
enterprising, saw May in the gul-
ly miss a chest high catch off
Warr when he was 19. Had the
catches been held two wickets
would have been down for 27,
The batsmen afterwards display-
ed care, and Stollmeyer, timing
the ball badly, was clearly ill at
ease,

However, this proved to be the
pest West Indies opening partner-
ship of the tour. They steadily
improved and Christiani, after
taking 100 minutes to reach, 50,
completed his first century—the
third of the touring team, in an-
other fifty.

Not until the board showed 178
in two hours, fifty minutes, did
Christiani fall l.b.w. His driving,
cutting and hitting to leg were
excellent, and he hit eleven fours.

Stollmeyer, not nearly so ag-
gressive, made some good drives
and leg glances, but he took nearly
three hours and a half to put to-
gether 83, with only three boun-
daries. He fell to a great catch
in the gully by Doggart, who flung
himself sideways and held the ball
near the ground,

Worrell and Weekes

Then came Worrell and Weekes,
both driving and hitting to leg
powerfully to add 166 without
being parted in the last hour and
fifty minutes. Weekes scored so
freely that he reached 102 in 101
minutes. So far the match has
yielded 973 runs for six wickets.

Manning’s back and fore hand

Victory
In the Ladies’ Déubles which

ended in a victory for Tranquillity
the game was quite even and thera
were good patches of net play.
Miss Reid won most of her points
with cross court shots and Miss
Trestrail was playing very stead-
ily.

In_ the ‘first set’ Mrs. Connell’s
drives were a bit wide as com-
pared with those in the second
set when she_ scored many
points from them.

In the third set, the scores were
up to 2—2, then

Manning rallied back,

contested one which Tranquillity
eventually won by three sets to
one after pulling up from a deficit
of 2—5 in the fourth set.
