PORT-OF-SPAIN, May 22.

Trinidad lost a prominent pub-
lic figure in the death yesterday
ef Algernon Burkett. Born in
1881, Burkett at one time or other
was law clerk, journalist, com-
mission agent, but the best role
in which Burkett 1 be remem-
bered was on the public oratorical
platform, where for the past 40
years he never ceased levelling
scathing criticism at the conduct
of the local Government with
emphasis on the treatment of the
barefoot man.

An ex-soldier of World War I,
Burkett fought unceasingly for
better treatment of soldiers. His
ca i in Woodford Square,
the local Hyde Park, became
recognised as part of the life of
Trinidad where freedom of speech
and criticism of Government and
other bodies formed the keynote
of his oratory.

Some years ago an order was
passed debarring Burkett from
Gnging an action in ia ee

urt except by speci -
sion of the Chief Justice. Burkett
was the only man against whom
such a ban was ever made.

The Chinese Communists in a

95 Years Old: Has

WALLINS CREEK, N.Â¥., May 22.

A 95-year-old farmer, John I.
Osborne, was today proclaimed
“the living father of the largest
number of living descendants in
the United States’—290 of them.

He has 12 children, 76 grand
children, 163 great-grandchildren,
and 39 great-great-grandchildren.

On his birthday yesterday, the
National Fathers’ Day Commit-
tee gave him a $100 Unifed States

descendants gathered at the cele
bration.

courage larger families, ‘‘a van

he waelkouts of the Soviet
presentation in the United Nations
eccurred since the events of 1949
described in this report” ne said.
“In the presence of this wilful
flouting by the Soviet Government
of obligations assumed by it un-
der the Charter, the United
Nations has taken the common
sense attitude of proceeding with
its business as usual”.

The letter and report made it
clear that the President intends
to strive for the United Nations
as a universal organisation—that
is, including the Communist as
well as the Western Powers.

At the same time he emphasised
that within this framework the
American Government intends to
do everything it can to strengthen
the West and block present Soviet
policies,

“Our expériences during 1949
in the United Nations provided
further demonstration that, as the
Secretary of State has recently
stated, agreements with the Soviet
Union and its satellites are valid
only as and when they record
existing siffiations of fact” Mr.
Truman geid.

Not Enoveh

“Tt is not enough to hope for
agreement or to make proposals

It is essential to create. the con-
ditions under which it will be to
the interest of the Soviet Union to
enter into and to keep agreements.
All International activities which
create moral, economic and
military strength among the
nations of the free world will
broaden the area of possible agree-
ment and hasten its coming.”

“The aroused opinion of man-
kind, when brought to sharp and
immediate focus as it often is in
the United Nations, is not likely
to be dismissed, even by a nation
that has strong battalions.”

After reviewing numerous
specific issues on which he Said
the Soviets blocked constructive
action in the United Nations last
year, Mr, Truman said: “The year
ended with a deepening of the
tension which has marked inter-
rational resolutions throughout
the postwar period.” —(Reuter)

Yugoslavs Want

LONDON, May 22

Edvard Kardeij, Yugoslav
Foreign Minister, quoted by Bel-
grade radio to-day, told the Na-
tional Assembly that Yugoslavia
wants to establish epelgh:
bourly relations with Italy” despite
the injustice done_to Yugoslavia
by the peace treaty.

But this he said depended on the
extent to which ri sible circles
in Italy were willing to replace
the “old imperialist policy by a
realistic policy of peaceful ‘ co-
operation and mutual respect for
peoples on both sides of the An-
tarctic. He said that Yugoslavia’s
attitude to Greece could be
summed up in one word—“peace”’.
Kardelj said plans were being
completed for restoration of rail-

An estimated 150 Western

MeCloy Tells |SCHU

Germans To
Repay Jews

HANOVER, British Zone, May 22,

American Ne Commissioner
John Me Cloy to-day urged the
German people to repay the Jews
for their persecution in the Past.
Mr. Me Cloy, speaking at a time
when anti-semitism is growing in
many parts of ‘West Germany,
said: “The peoples outside Ger-
many, and I am sure all right
thinking Germans, feel that one
of the gravest injustices the mod-
ern world has witnessed was un- |
fortunately committed on German
soil—the Nazi persecution of Jews!
and, those who dared to resist.

No one can help those who are

|





dead. The German people, new-'|

ever, can demonstrate their good-
will by faking prompt and
generous action to restituie to the

persecutees that which is justly ||

theirs.

Such action should not need
proging from any allied source.
t is an obligation, moral more
than economic, which the German
people must meet. ‘The spirit and
speed with which it is met will
do much to determine the attitude
of other peoples, so many of whose
lives have been disrupted and im-
paired by the aggressions and
cruel ties of the past. But even
more important, it will mark the
development of the new Ger-
many’s moral structure.—Reuter.

LONDON.

The well - dressed maie is a
“three-hat” man.

London’s mid-town hatters are
insisting that every modern Beau
Brummell should have at leasi
one hat for town wear, another for
the country and a third for week-
ends.

The headgear experts state that
for town wear the black homburg
and the “London-shape” bowler
(derby) with narrow brim are to-
day “the correct vogue”.

“Although the bowler suffered
a waftime eclipse, it is now back
in full popularity for city wear.’

The hatters obviously are fol-

The boater is out too. Its last
brief revival was in the early 30's
when the Duke of Windsor, then
Prince of Wales, brought it back
into short-lived favour.

The main reason for its disap-
pearance—it is now only made for
special orders from scheols—is the
difficulty of getting the straw,
which is imported from Japan.

Panamas will also be out this
summer, as they are imported from
Ecuador for re-export. So only a
few “rejects” will be available in
the home market.

The black silk topper is almost
unobtainable because Britain has
ceased to import the essential
plush from France. But grey Ascot
toppers are plentiful. They are
made of felt.

Girls Always Win

LONDON.
When it comes to growing up.
the girls always win.
Science has now discovered that
girls grow up two to two and one-
half years earlier than boys.

Three British scientists, R. H.
Cawley, Hamilton Hogben and J.
A. Waterhouse, in an article in the
British Journal of Social Medi-
cine, established proof of this by
examining 642 boys and 662 girls,
from 8% to 17 years of age in the
Tottenham area of London.



They state, in an analysis of
their findings, that at an age vary
ing from 10% to 11% the growth
| of girls, in all dimensions, is much
more noticeable, while two to two
and one-half years Jater there is
a swing round in favour of boys.

Before the age of 12, girls on
the average are more long-headed
than boys, but after that age they
become more broad-headed.

At 17 boys are bigger in main
body dimensions except pelvic,
shoulder and face widths.

Diseussion of

SCAC Report

(B. chedos Advecate Correspondent)

GEORGETOWN.

‘To my mind the common interests of the Cartbbean terri-

tories, economically, comme
call for closer association.”

reially and socially, certain!)
So said His Exeellency Sir

Charles Woolley, K.C.M.G., Governor of British’ Guiana, in
his 90-minute address at the Ceremonial opening of the
Third Session of the Colony’s Fourth Legislative Counci!
on Wednesday, May 17, 1950.

B.G. Had $22m
Revenue In ’49

Advocate Correspondent!
GEORGETOWN.
British Guiana’s revenue for
1949 amounted to approximately
$22 million and expenditure to
just under $21 million, including
capital expenditure of some
$1,150,000 on various items pro-
vided for under the Ten-Year
Development Plan or since agreed
upon as necessary additions to
that plan :
This left a balance of approxi-
mately $1 million to be carried to
accumulated surplus balances
which at December 31, 1949, stood
in round figures at $7% million.
Reviewing the position at the
opening of the Legislative Coun-
cil last Wednesday, the Governor,
Sir Charies Woolley, said...
“This satisfactory result was,
however. only achieved by taking
to revenue a_ sinking fund
amounting to $2,180,000 and re-
leased by the conversion of a loan
of $5 million raised in 1929.
Excluding on the one hand this
extraordinary receipt and on the
other, the Development Plan
expenditure the Colony’s accounts

for 1949 only just balanced,

Excessed Revenue

The budget for 1950 has been
balanced without recourse to
extra taxation, but again, only
barely so, with an estimated
excess of revenue over expendi-
ture at the end of 1950 of a mere ;

(Barbados

$300,000. This means that any}

substantial supplementary expen-@2
diture during the current year®
due to unforeseen circumstances,
and some have already been re-
vealed, must be met by inroads

Commenting on this situation. the
Governor emphasised that “cau-
tion is therefore necessary, and
we must therefore reduce such
expenditure to what is absolutely
essential unless it can be shown
to be in itself productive.

The situation appears more
grave When it is realised that the
yg me floods which marked
the close of 1949, caused great
loss of crops and livestock, dam-
age to roads, drainage and irriga-
tion works, and seriously affected
sugar and other production. These
floods will involve expenditure of
nearly $1 million—and for which
there is no _ provision in this
year’s budget—in the form of re-
lief works, assistance to farmers
for rehgbilitation of their fields
and repairs to communications
and drainage works,

The Colony’s financial resources
have been further strained by the
adoption of the recommendations
of the Commissions appointed in
1948 for revision of salaries and
wages of Government, employees,
employees in the Transport and
Harbours Dept., and Primary
School teachers. The adoption of
these recommendations has added
to the expenditure side of the
Colony’s budget a permanent re-
current charge of no less than
2% million dollars.

Dr. R. Downey, Roman

lic Archbishop of Liverpool, said

pursers, cooks and hostesses. He
said that on one ship, 60 of the
crew of 600 were women.

DELICATE

Sir Charles was discussing the
report of the Standing Closer As-
sociation Committee advocating a
British Caribbean Federation, “It
is, I feel.” he said, “particulariy
important that the far reachins
proposals in this report should be
as widely publicised as possible,
so that the people of British Gui-
ana come to no final conclusions
upon them under any misappre-
hension of what they are and what
they mean. We should neither
accept it blindly nor reject it out
of hand in any mood of splendd
isolation.

His Excellency expressed the
view that it is common ground
that the common interests of the
Caribbean territories call for
closer association, and suggested
that the real question which, in
his opinion, is exercising the minds
of Guianese is whether or not that
closer association can best be
brought about by political federa-
tion of the kind proposed.

True Interests

“You have to ask yourselves,”
he added,” and decide where,
when all the pros and cons have
been thrashed out, the balance of
advantage and the true interests
of British Guiana lie.

As the Secretary of State has
assured you His Majesty’s Govern-
ment do not look upon federation
as a means of avoiding its respon-
sibilities or as in amy way pre-

judicing dev. of self -
ernment in inaeiduat territo’ %

Touching on C ional Re-
form, y important
issue politically, Sir Charles said
.... “May I remind you in of
the special Commission ich is

Sto be appointed by His Majesty’s

Government very shortly to make
recommendations

islative Council and related ma‘
ters. The personnel of that Com-
mission and its exact terms of
reference are now being considered
by the Secretary of State and the

ommission itself should arrive
in British Guiana before the end
‘of the year. His Excellency ap-
pealed to all concerned to devote
both time and serious study to
this matter and be ready to give
the Commission their considered
views as the form of Constitution
which they frankly believe would
in our best special circumstances,
be in the best interests of the
people of British Guiana and its
future welfare.

Smoking May
Cause Cancer

SARANAC LAKE, New York,
May 18
Cancer of the lung attacks men
almost exclusively, and appears
to be linked to cigarette smoking
according to Dr. Alton Ochner,
President of the American Cancer



Society.

“Cancer of the lung has become
a frequent disease among men and

continues to increase,” he said in

an address here.
Although not yet proven, ihe

cause is probably cigarette smok-

ing, since the incidence of lung
cancer parallels smoking.

The disease seems to attack men
almost exclusively — by-passing
even women who smoke heavily,”
he added.

Dr. Ochtier said that X-ray
was one of the best ways of de-
tecting cancer. In a talk before
physicians, he recommended re-
moval of the entire lung in treat-
ment of lung cancer.—Reuter.

UP! SIR _ Foster Mother
STAFFORD Wants Bertha

LONDON.
Britain's rising wholesale prices
belie Sir Stafford Cripps’ fore-
cast that devaluation would find
only a mild repercussion in the
cost of living.

After being reduced, to a
modest crawl in the first quar-
ter of 1950, wholesale prices now
are rising briskly.

In April the Board of Trade
index rose 4.8 points to 249.8,
the sharpest movement since the

SINGAPORE, May 22.

Bertha de Hartogh 13 year-old
Dutch girl who the Singapore
Supreme Court ordered to be re-
turned to her natural parents in
Holland, will not leave Singapore
until the Court has heard an
appeal against this judgment. The
Chief Justice today granted a
stay of execution of the Court's
order pending the hearing of an
appeal by Bertha’s foster mother,
Aminah who fled with Bertha into
the jungle when the Japanese
invaded Java in 1942, Bertha had

for cereals and “other food and
tobacco,” resulting from the final
abolition of subsidies on animal
feeding stuffs and the rise in the
price of butter.

Wool prices showed the sharp-
est increases among _ industrial
materials and manufactures but
non-ferrous metals, particularly
copper, lead and Zinc, also were
substantially up.

At 249.8 the index is now 19.1
points or more than eight per
cent above the pre-devaluation
level.

Financial circles consider it un-
avoidable that at a later stage
such a material advance in the
wholesale price level will com-
municate itself more fully to the
level of retail prices.

they searched for their fair-haired
daughter but were unable to find
her until a District Commissioner
made inquires in north eastern
Malaya where he found Bertha

native village.

Aminah said today: “I do not
want to live in this world if |

weak with fever she went into

Free Hens

LONDON.

Britain’s Socialist Government
has presented a new bill to the
House of Commons on Thursday
abolishing restrictions on the
keeping of hens and rabbits.

Because of their slender
majority of six in this Parliament
the Socialists are steering clear
of controversial legislation.

The new bill decrees that “it
shall be lawful for the occupier
of any land to keep. otherwise
than by way of trade and busi-
ness, hens or rabbits in any place
on the land, and to erect or place
aad maintain such buildings or
structures on the land as are
reasonably necessary for that pur-

The bill also amends the law

VEGETABLES





WITHIN recent month

grown in this island have exceeded local
requirements and growers have
ready sale overseas tor several tons.
In an interview with this newspaper Mr.
W. A. Crawford, M.C.P. who is the pro-
prietor of a large garden in Christ Church
said that he was fortunate in having orders
for about ten tons of vegetables within the
next few weeks. Goddard & Sons are also,
it is understood, exporting large quantities
of vegetables to British Guiana. But even
with the quantities of vegetables sent out
of the island, satisfaction of the local house-
wives market still leave thousands of
pounds of vegetables available for sale as

animal food.

Barbados has been and still is importing
from other West Indian islands large quan-
In 1948 canned
and preserved vegetables imported into
this island amounted to 95,811 lbs. at a cost
of £3,832 while imported fresh vegetables
for the same period amounted to 145,467
Ibs. at a cost of £2,180. This meant that the
sum of $29,083 had been spent on imported
food which could have been partly sup-
plied in the local market. The figures for
1949 show that there has been an increase
in both canned preserved and fresh vege-
Last year 119,470 lbs. of canned
and preserved vegetables cost this island
$26,285 while 151,652 lbs. of fresh vegetables

tables.

cost $11,259; a total of $37,544.

The reasons for surplus vegetables are
easy to seek. In the first place much of the
land at one time “dedicated” to cane has
been released. This was due to the excel-
lent returns from the new varieties and
improved methods of cultivation. It was
found that the war time regulation compel-
ling owners to plant a certain percentage
of their lands in food crops was a blessing
in disguise. The returns of the land were
greater and in many instances the econo-
mic position of the small land owner was

improved,

In addition to all this, there was the sys-
tem instituted by Mr. H. M. Halcrow then
Deputy Director of Agriculture who
encouraged peasants to plant vegetables in
good quantities after showing them im-
proved methods of handling their gardens.
The Government took over the schemes
supported by Colonial Development and
‘Welfare supplied funds for irrigation, thus
changing many derelict gardens into eco-

nomic holdings.

"It is a happy discovery that vegetables
are additional means of earning revenue
but care must be taken to ensure that the
exit of vegetables is due to satisfied de-
mand and not to inability of housewives to
afford current prices. Trinidad and British
Guiana are said to afford two fine markets
for. garden vegetables and with a little care
exercised and proper methods of grading
and handling it seems possible to tap a
source of revenue which does not interfere
with the export trade of any other West
Indian colony. But it would be no economy
to sell all our vegetables and go short our-

selves.

With the cost of living rising unexpected-
ly and in some instances out of proportion,
it would be a necessary precaution to en-
sure that in an effort to export goods we
do not unbalance the diet of a people who
have just begun to learn the importance of »
knowing the caloric value of certain forms

of diet.

In addition to the potential export mar-
ket for fresh vegetables Barbados might
consider the next step which is the canning
of vegetables and fruit juices. This indus-
try has already found protagonists quali-
fied and willing to do the job in this island;
but there must be encouragement and help.
At least there must be no obstacles in the
way of taxation on new industries.



@ur Readers Say:

To the Editor, The Advocate
SIR,—During the last few weeks
your newspaper has been doing a
service to the community by
keeping track of the insanitary
ns of the many alley
ways in Bridgetown. The result
has been satisfactory to every
member of the community who
has any aesthetic sense.

It is however strange to find possi

as soon as something was
done to correct the evil and the
hawkers were being removed
from the corners of alleys where
Â¥ instituted the collection of
with their skins and shells,

an of the Sanitary
Commission and a member of the
Scavenging Committee should
ask the Commissioner of Police
for a.chance for these offenders.

The answer to this problem is
markets. The Government has
been toying for many years with
the idea of district markets and
up to now nothing has been done
except that a few people went
around the parish pointing out
the spots which they considered
the most suitable.

If these markets had. been
erected there would have not been
this collection of hawkers in the
alleys. They not only use the
gutters as dustbins but they cause
very unsanitary conditions.

world today.

5. IN PURITY. “Blessed are
the pure in heart, for they shali
see God”, said our Lord. Deep
down, we are called upon to be
sincere. Purity takes many forms;
there,is purity of motive; there is
purity of mind; there is purity of
body; there is purity of speech.
The secret of purity in all its
forms, is to possess what our
Lord called “an honest and good
heart”. Purity of motive and
intention, can only come when
the self is set on what is right;
unless God is our centre, motives
will be all wrong. When they are
wrong, we misunderstand our
own make up: minds will be out
of gear, our senses of sight and
hearing will be adjusted to the
wrong things, and we shall mis-
understand the real purpose of
our bodies, They are the instru-
ments through which character,
the real person, finds expression,
and for the Christian they are
temples of the Holy Ghost, who
remade us in Baptism and dwells
within us. Our bodies are for
use and not for misuse. When
the self is centred on something
other than God, then comes
everything that is vile; eyes
which delight in filth, ears which
listen to all that is sordid, minds
which think of what is base and
selfish, tongues which delight in
slander and untruth and bodies
used for impure and evil ends.
In all these ways there is much
impurity in our Island life. Don’t
despise your youth or allow others
to despise it by delighting in these
evil things. Sin never brings
happiness; it brings shame and
ruin. Sin is never happiness, and
although God means us to be
happy, He first requires us to be
loving, and sin is always se'fish.

What I have said, may sound
depressing, yet it is not really
depressing to assess as well as
we can, the dangers around us.
But the Christian life is a real
life, and in spite of the dangers,
we have assurance beyond all
measure. Last Thursday was
Ascension Day, the day on which
we commemorated Our Lord’s
return to Glory from whejce He
came, and where He now lives,
reigns and works, and no one
knows better than He, the dangers
which beset us in this life. Next
Sunday we shall think of His
promise fulfilled, when He poured
forth the Holy Spirit, to guide
us into all truth, to strengthen
us against all adversity, and to
build us up in love. By these
events in History, tested by cen-
turies of Christian endeavour, we
know that we have at-our dis-
posal thé Whole armour of God,
with every resource at our
disposal to enable us to live the
good life and so meet the tasks
of our own day and generation.
In the practical business of living.
it all comeg to this — you wil!
never have’a good society any-
where in the world, unless and
until the good men and
women. God requires you to be
good. Therefore go from _ this
service, remembering your heri-
tage and the noble people who
have served their fellows in days
gone by, and with your minds
made up that you will try tc
serve God and your fellows
better than ever before. There is
much to be done, but never
despise the simple things which
need doing from day to day.
These simple things provide some
of your best training, and sooner
than you think, you will find
yourselves men and women upon
whom the burden wil? fall. You
have no need to fear: the world
has been overcome, and the
power of God is yours—‘“Let no
man despise thy youth; but be
thou an ensample in word; in
manner of life; in love; in faith;
in purity. God bless you all.

YOUTH IS A STAGE The Public “Have A Look”

WHAT DID the public think of Britain’s
exclusive Fair for the trade?

On Saturday they had an opportunity of
seeing for themselves, and as always, the
Commonwealth Section was besieged by

e

The Nigerian stand attracted attention in
the first place because it is the only one which
boasts a film show. The film, which depicts
life in Nigeria, local customs, songs, agricul-
ture, and so on, runs continuously. The stand
itself is built in a corner, giving it a two-
sided effect, and it is both informative and
instructive. Diagrams in brilliant colour, sur-
realistic wall graphs, and relief maps, show

how important Nigerian products are—as

dollar earners. We see what efforts have been

made to stabilize prices by the setting up

of boards for cocoa, groundnuts, oil palm
products, and cotton; and how comparatively

simple it now is to travel long distances by
air.

Africans, in brilliant national dress, mostly
students, are in attendance, helping to “sell”
Nigeria.

compete with American cotton producers,
this fine Sea Island cotton is to be made in
wider lengths. At the moment it is only 36”
wide, but for Eastern markets, a greater
width is wanted. Only two mills in Lan-
eashire are engaged in making this cotton
at present, but they are able to supply al
that is required, by working at top pitch.

Her Majesty particularly liked a silky
cotton in soft grey, with a dark traced design
all over it.

A West Indian girl, in attendance on the
stall, told me she had been asked innumer-
able questions about cotton by the public.
“Though many of them” she said ruefully,
“thought Sea Island was an island in the
South Pacific! Many of the children wanted
to know how cotton was processed, and were
interested in the cotton bolls and beans on
the stand.”

The Trinidad stall has concentrated more
on curios this year—locally made dolls,
woodwork, straw and raffia baskets. The
Swedish buyers were mostly interested in
the raffia and straw work; Egyptian buyers
wanted the coconut oil.

As for the public, “Well, most of them were
surprised to find that there is other rum be-
sides Jamaican!” I was told. 5

This year, British Guiana has a stand for
the first time. It features mainly timber—
the floor and walls are examples'of the fine
woods available.

“The public’s interest was most flattering”
they told me,, “and Continental buyers, one
from Denmark in particular, said if it were
possible to buy this wood in quantity, they
would use nothing else for flooring.” The
particular woods were wallaba, a herring-
bone pattern and basket pattern timber; and
purpleheart, which can be polished to a deep
warm purple shade,

_ They have received enough enquiries to
justify them going ahead with production of
greenheart, purpleheart, and mora, among
other types of timber-woods that until now
have been ignorgd.

In general, women were interested in
fruit and curios, men in rum and cigars, and
children in everything.

Hong Kong told me they could have used
“a flying squad to keep the public from
swarming all over the stall.”

Pakistan had dozens of enquiries for phool-
kari—beautiful lengths of glowing material
woven with threads of gold, which is not for
sale, and for tiny pointed sandals, also only on
show. However, trade buyers were more in-
terested in their export goods, which ranged
unromantically but usefully, from footballs
to boxing gloves.

It is noticeable, on enquiring at all th:
stands, that the public are displaying much
greater interest in the different countries. In
general, they ask intelligent questions, and
appreciate intelligent answers.

Scout Thanks

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—As it was impossible for
us to suitably thank those who as-
sisted in making the concert re-
cently given by the Scout Troop
of the 36th Barbados (Holy Trinity
Group) for the magnificent suc-
cess it was, may we try to do so in
your valuable columns.

At the outset, we sincerely thank
the Rev. O. E. Jones for kindly
allowing us to give the concert in
the school room; incidentally we

opportunity to express our thanks
to the reverend gentleman for his
kindness in permitting us to do
so.

We cannot even here adequately
express our gratitude to the ar-
tistes from Bridgetown whose
gratuitous performances were so
greatly appreciated by the audi-
ence, The exquisite saw solos of
Mr. Ben Gibson, the glorious
singing of Messrs. Reeves and
Morris; the beautiful accompani-
ments of Mr, Bentley Callender
and -the incomparable tap-danc-
ing of Mr. H. Springer will not
be easily forgotten. We also thank
the lady and the gentleman who
so ably assisted Mr. Reeves in the
play “the cost of a bus ride.” We
thank them all for the cultural
influence they assisted in impart-
ing to our concert and hope that
they will long be spared to carry
on such work for the upliftment
of the community.

We especially desire to thank
Messrs. Ben Gibson, E. Lorde and
Charles Reeves. The first two gen-
tlemen gratuitously placed their
cars at our disposal for the con-
veyance of the Bridgetown artistes
to and from the concert thus
minimising our expenditure con-
siderably. Mr. Reeves was very

ints and suggestions.

We tender heartfelt thanks, to
that inspiring and social worker
Mrs. J. B. Broomes. This lady
not only rendered two inspiring
recitations most beautifully, but
generously came to our assist
in selecting items for the -
gramme; we greatly apprecfate
her help and influence.

It is particularly gratifying to
hear residents of other parishes
say that there are ladies and gen-
tlemen in St. Philip who possess
dramatic ability. We offer thanks
to such ladies and gentlemen af
Mr. Ianthe Marshall, the Miss
Matrid_ Lyte, and Mar-
lorie Daniel, Meide ae
a ilma Greenidge, S,
Kennett Marshall, Calvert Taylor,
Rudolph Sealy and Granville
Forde, who, at no small incon-
venience to themselves gave us
unstintingly of their time and
talents,

Our warmest thanks are also
due to Mr.. Arthur Lucas who
performed the duties of chairman
most efficiently, to Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Nurse for kindly lending
us their piano, to Miss M. Clarke
who lent us screens, to those who
lent us lamps, chairs and benches,

Imperials Can Join
To The Editor The Advocate
SIR,— With reference to Cap-
tain A. H. V. Wakeham’s letter
regarding the formation of a
Canadian Legion Branch in Bar-
bados, the Captain in suggesting
this is performing a real public
service for the commuity.
Having just returned to settle
here, and as a Canadian Legionaire
of twenty odd years the only
criticism I have to offer is that
the fact was not made plain that
Imperial Veterans are just as
welcome and eligible to join as
Canadians, in fact the Secretaries

of our three clubs in Victoria are s

still ex-imperials.

Also for your readers’ informa-
tion the Canadian Legion at the
time of devaluation fought for and
got for the Imperial Veterans in
Canada a raise in their pensions
equivalent to Canadian Veterans.

Disappointed

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—I should like to endorse
fully most of the remarks of your
letter writer “Jackson No, 2” in
your issue of the 18th inst re-
garding the advertisements that
have developed into a regular and
almost continuous feature of the
Radio Distribution programmes.

It seems that the sponsors of
this type of advertising do not
know or realize that it is objec-
tionable to many normal sub-
scribers,

In my opinion the form that
most of the advertising takes is
ill-timed, ill-conceived and un-
pleasant, and so far as I and many
wares are concerned, completely
spbils the enjoyment of what could
very often be pleasant and con-
tinuous music and/or entertain-
ment.

I should certainly never buy
any of the ‘products that are
thrust down my throat continu-
ously and literally, “ad Nauseam.”

Candy Vendors | «

Leave Bus Stand

ROBYN STREET "BUS STAND

is now freeg from the sweet,
bread and cocoanut vendors who
formerly creatéd a nuisance to
passengers alighting from or
awaiting "buses.

Many sweet vendors formerly
took up their stand under the
shelters in this Bus Stand but now
that they have been ordered to
remove, passengers have more

Before action was taken against
the vendors, a regular sight was
to see them making use of the
shelters during a downpour of rain
while on the other hand passengers
had to shelter under trees.

IE BALCONY of the new

Plaza Theatre at Probyn
Street is now being erected and
the ground is being levelled for
the flooring Workmen are
plastering the walls inside while
another set of labourers are work-
ing on the roof.

{
Work on the front view of the}

theatre is also progressing rapidly
and it is expected that in a few
months’ time the opening perform-
ance will take place.

ppeAsemrasss alighting from
"buses entering Trafalgar
Square from the Christ Church
and St. Philip districts are making
full use of the footpath recently
erected in Trafalgar Square.

A few passengers told the
Advocate yesterday that they
would suggest a shelter erected
over the footpath. They said that
when suggesting this they had
taken into consideration the fact
that the “hot weather” will soon
he here.

One of these passengers, who
had visited England on manv oc-
easions, said that in Middles-
borough he had seen the same
type of footpath erected with rails
along both sides. Openings were
at two points and the footpath
was covered. He pointed out
that this type of footpath also
served a good purpose by forcing
passengers to queue for "buses in-
stead of rushing up and pushing
ahead of those who have been
waiting for about ten or fifteen
minutes.

EARLY ALL the temporary

sign posts in Trafalgar
Square are now being replaced by
islands. Workmen were busy
yesterday erecting an island op-
posite the Public Buildings. This
will carry the sign which directs

traffic over the Chamberlain
Bridge,
HIEVES WERE busy over the
week-end and four losses,

ranging from a fowl to a suit,
were reported.

Reginald Smith of Baxters Road
reported the loss of 30 lbs. of lead
weight valued $6.00 from his
residence on Saturday.

The loss of six fowls valued
$6.80, was reported by Viola Sealy
of Licorish Village, My Lord’s
Hill. She stated that they were
removed from her residence
during Saturday night.

Mr. T. S. Branch of Belle Planta-
tion, reported the loss of a battery
valued. $39.07 from.a motor lorry
in a garage at the same plantatiou
during Friday night.

The battery is the property of
the Trustees of the Estate of the
Earl of Harewood.

A grey tropical suit is reported
to be lost by Robert Thorpe of
Chapel Gap, Paynes Bay, St.
James. He stated that it is valued
$35 and was removed from his
mother’s residence at Paynes Bay
between 8.30 p.m. and 10.30 p.m.
on Saturday.

IGHT SHOPKEEPERS were

charged yesterday with fail-
ing to exhibit a copy of the Shop
Orders 1946. Shopkeepers are
being charged daily for this
offence and the Advocate was told
yesterday that the majority of
shopkeepers prefer to be charged
than spending one shilling to ob-
tain an Order from the Colonial
Secretary’s Office.

NLY THREE motorists were

charged with exceeding the
speed limit over the week-end and
the same amount for failing to stop
at Major Koads. Four motorists
were charged with parking in pro-
hibited areas.
“ HE TECHNIQUE of Retail

Grocery Salesmanship” was

Cold Storage
Needed

Six thousand flying fish were





jbrought in by the Government

Research Fishing Boat ‘“Investi-
gator” last night. The majority
of these fish were caught by the
“gill net” while about 1,200 ‘vere
scooped by the ordinary flyin», fish
nets,

In an_ interview’ with
Advocate last night, Mr. D. :
Wiles, Fisheries Officer, said that
he was of the opinion that the
island could double its catches of
fish if there was a large Cold
Storage and a good price offered
for the fish.

An article by George Hunte ap-
peared in the “Evening Advocate”
under the head “Great Jumping
Fishes” which referred to the large
quantities of Bonitoes seen off
the St. James Coast.

With reference co mis Mr. Wiles
said last night that as yet he was
not even worrying to notice the
Banitoes because of the large
catches of flying fish. He is afraid
that the fish would have to be
thrown: away because they wold
be too much for the consumption
of Barbadians.

He says that the Bonitoes are an
easy target, but “what is the use
ef catching them when there is no
need to.”

Mr, Wiles pointed out that there
is a great need for a Cold Storage
in Barbados,

$1,715

Repaid

DURING the month an amount
of $1,715.57 was repaid on loans
to fishermen bringing the total
repaid to date to $45,571.63. In-
terest collected for the
period amounted to $33.37,
making a total of $541.16 collect-
ed to date.

A sum of $3,489.08 was issued
in loans to fishermen, making a
total of $85,702.24 issued to date.

The Experimental Boat and the
tractor at Bathsheba continued to
operate during the month.

There were many large catches
of fish during the month and a
total of 90,265 lb. of fish was re-
corded at the rural market sheds;.
Skeete’s Bay shed in St. Philip
had the largest amount—31,553 Ib.
Returns indicate that 113,634 lb.
of fish were marketed through
the Bridgetown Fish Market and
90,265 lb. through the rural mar-
ket sheds

Tanker Brings

Kerosene

Supplies of 206,338 gallons of
gasoline and 101,421 gallons of
kerosene oil from Trinidad arrived
for Barbados by the oil tanker
“Rufina” on Sunday,

Of this shipment, 180,784 gallons
of gasoline were consigned to
Messrs DaCosta & Cog Ltd. and
30,060 gallons of kerosene for Gen-
eral Traders Ltd. while 25,554 gal-
lons of gasoline and 71,361 gallons
of kerosene came to Messrs R. M.
Jones & Co., Ltd.

The “Rufina” was shortly after
its arrival taken to Spring
Gardens, Black Rock, where it
usually discharges its fuel.

Also arriving on Sunday from
Trinidad with fuel was Schooner
“Gita M”. This vessel brought
212 drums of gasoline and 40
drums of cardium compound.

Death By
Misadventure

Death by misadventure was the
verdict returned by a 9-man jury
when an inquiry into the death of
Orlando Sealy of Kew Land, St.
Thomas, was held by Mr. C. L. D.
Walwyn, Coroner of District “D”,
yesterday.

Sealy, an 11-year-old schoolboy,
while fishing and throwing stones
into the tank at Bagatelle Planta
tion on Sunday, May 21, slipped
and fell and was drowned before
he could be rescued.









MAY MEETING

| The annual Genera] Meeting of
| the West India Committee will, be
held on May 24

Their mission was to get as
many Venezuelans as possible to

| Spend their summer holidays in

Barbados. Mr. Goddard said that
the prospects of success were very
good . ‘They were well re-
ceived wherever they went
Venezuela.

Mr. Iverson, he said, is going to
Trinidad this week to finalise cer-
tain arrangements in connection
with the plan for getting more
Venezuelans here. But there was
one thing Barbados must always
remember. They must always
advertise.

One only had to go outside Bar-
bados, Mr. Goddard said, to real-
ise at once how little Barbados is
known outside. Venezuelans must
be told all the year round “come
to Barbados.”

DECISION REVERSED

Because the compiaint left oui

j the Judges of the Assistant Court
of Appeal, Mr. G. L. Taylor and
Mr. H. A. Vaughn yesterday
reversed a decision of His Wor-
} sm, Mr. D, D. Morris. They struck
out a case which the police brought
| against Stanley Hawkins, c.aiming
that he did not stop his car before
he had entered the carriage way
of Constitution Road, a major
road. Mr. Morris had convicted
Hawkins. Both the police and
he appealed against Mr. Morris’
decision.

The alleged offence was commit-
ted on February 3 when Hawkins’
car became involved in an accident
with Morace Rock of George
Street. Rock was driving a motor
cycle at the time of the accident
He was struck and became un-
conscious 7

No Decision

Their Honours said that they
were making no decision as to who
was right or who was wrong, but
since the complaint had left out

before entering the carriage way,
they had to strike out the case.

A School Magazine

ANOTHER issue of the Provi-

on those of the past.

Its outstanding feature is the
contributions by the pupils of the
School. Here they find outlet for
their energies and expression
There are other contributors ano
chief among these is Dr. F. N
Grannum, Senior Medical Officer
The genial doctor writes showing
“How we can protect ourselve:
against certain Diseases.” Unfor-
tunately his article carries the
title with Dr. Farnum as the authe+
but this in no way lessens the
value of the contribution.

The Providence School Magazine
is a fine contribution to the de-
velopment of the _ elementary
school child in this island.



Broken Winch
Detains Vessel

Unloading of the motor vessel
“Student Prince” was held up
yesterday when a winch broke.

The Student Prince was here
since Sunday with a load of 670
casks of salted fish for this port.
While discharging the cargo into
lighters the winch gave away.

Usually, vessels bringing fish
from Newfoundland come along-
side the wharf to discharge their
cargoes but the Student Prince
was anchored off Pelican Island
because it had on board high ex-
plosives for British Guiana.

The vessel may be completely
discharged of its cargo on Wed-
nesday.

Plaintiff IU:
Suit Adjourned

THE Common Pleas suit of
C.deCourcey Garner of Bank
Hall, St. Michael (plaintiff) and
Blanche Small and Edgar
Small of near Barker’s
Corner, St. Thomas (defendants)
was not heard as scheduled be-
fore His Honour the Chief Judge,
Sir Allan Collymore, yesterday,
because Blanche Small is ill and
cannot attend Court for the next
seven days.

The suit has been adjourned
until next Tuesday.

The Chief Judge explained to
the Special Jury that had been
Summoned that the defendants
were not represented by Counsel,
and that Blanche had tendered a
medical certificate from Dr.
Charles Manning. The Court had
got in touch with Dr. Manning,
who had told of the nature of the
defendant's illness, and had ex-
pressed the opinion that she
would be able to come to Court
in seven days’ time.

The plaintiff is represented by
Mr. E. K. Walcott K.C., instructed
by Messrs. Cottle Catford & Co.

ANOTHER DECISION
REVERSED

THE Judges of the Assistant
Court of Appeal, Mr. G. L. Taylor
and Mr, H. A. Vaughn yesterday
reversed a decision of Mr. E. A.
McLeod, Police Magistrate of
District “A” and dismissed a case
which C. M. Greenidge brought
against I. Barker claiming that he
refused to give up possession of
a house which he rented from
Joseph Barker in Suttle Street.

Mr. McLeod had ordered that
Barker be ejected. Greenidge was
the agent of Joseph Barker, the
landlord, while I. Barker appeared
as the agent of the tenant.

The case had previously been
heard in the Lower Court and
had been withdrawn because the
second notice which had been
given to the tenant had not been
correctly made out. Greenidge
gave another notice after the case
had been withdrawn, holding it to
be a second notice on the basis
that the first notice still held.

‘fheir Honours pointed out that
if they gave judgment on that
ground, it would mean that one
could give a first notice any length
of time before the second notice.
The tenant was fully justified in
thinking that since so"long a time
had elapsed during the first and
second notice, the landlord did
not intend to take further legal
action.

After Lunch

At tea the MCC had scored 120
for 3 on a pitch that looked a good
deal easier than before lunch,
Simpson was then undefeated at
65. Williams claimed all three
of the wickets. Simpson and
Robertson had put on 52 for the
opening partnership, when Robert-
son fell to Rae at long-on. Eight
ruas later Edrich was out l|.b.w,
for 2, playing back to a ball which
went through quickly.

Dewes, the Cambridge blue,
wes again disappointing, hitting
across a delivery which shattered
his stumps at 104. Though Simp-

inches away, Barryw playing on
the right wing got ssion, but
with goal-keeper Atkins only to
overcome passed the ball to the
left wing as the defenders sprung
to the attack, and so missed a
valuable opportunity to score the
first goal of the match.
Pressure Kept Up

The pressure was kept up, but
the partan defence worked
splendidly and averted several
dangerous movements. The efforts
of the Bank Hall team were
eventually rewarded, however. A
good try was sent in and centre-
forward Wood got to the ball just
as the goal-keeper was about to
save. He guided it smartly into
the nets. Further good attempts

PORT-OF-SPAIN, May 22.

Trinidad lost a prominent pub-
lic figure in the death yesterday
ef Algernon Burkett. Born in
1881, Burkett at one time or other
was law clerk, journalist, com-
mission agent, but the best role
in which Burkett 1 be remem-
bered was on the public oratorical
platform, where for the past 40
years he never ceased levelling
scathing criticism at the conduct
of the local Government with
emphasis on the treatment of the
barefoot man.

An ex-soldier of World War I,
Burkett fought unceasingly for
better treatment of soldiers. His
ca i in Woodford Square,
the local Hyde Park, became
recognised as part of the life of
Trinidad where freedom of speech
and criticism of Government and
other bodies formed the keynote
of his oratory.

Some years ago an order was
passed debarring Burkett from
Gnging an action in ia ee

urt except by speci -
sion of the Chief Justice. Burkett
was the only man against whom
such a ban was ever made.

Tibet for many years has heen

95 Years Old: Has

WALLINS CREEK, N.Â¥., May 22.

A 95-year-old farmer, John I.
Osborne, was today proclaimed
“the living father of the largest
number of living descendants in
the United States’—290 of them.

He has 12 children, 76 grand
children, 163 great-grandchildren,
and 39 great-great-grandchildren.

On his birthday yesterday, the
National Fathers’ Day Commit-
tee gave him a $100 Unifed States

he waelkouts of the Soviet
presentation in the United Nations
eccurred since the events of 1949
described in this report” ne said.
“In the presence of this wilful
flouting by the Soviet Government
of obligations assumed by it un-
der the Charter, the United
Nations has taken the common
sense attitude of proceeding with
its business as usual”.

The letter and report made it
clear that the President intends
to strive for the United Nations
as a universal organisation—that
is, including the Communist as
well as the Western Powers.

At the same time he emphasised
that within this framework the
American Government intends to
do everything it can to strengthen
the West and block present Soviet
policies,

“Our expériences during 1949
in the United Nations provided
further demonstration that, as the
Secretary of State has recently
stated, agreements with the Soviet
Union and its satellites are valid
only as and when they record
existing siffiations of fact” Mr.
Truman geid.

Not Enoveh

“Tt is not enough to hope for
agreement or to make proposals

It is essential to create. the con-
ditions under which it will be to
the interest of the Soviet Union to
enter into and to keep agreements.
All International activities which
create moral, economic and
military strength among the
nations of the free world will
broaden the area of possible agree-
ment and hasten its coming.”

“The aroused opinion of man-
kind, when brought to sharp and
immediate focus as it often is in
the United Nations, is not likely
to be dismissed, even by a nation
that has strong battalions.”

After reviewing numerous
specific issues on which he Said
the Soviets blocked constructive
action in the United Nations last
year, Mr, Truman said: “The year
ended with a deepening of the
tension which has marked inter-
rational resolutions throughout
the postwar period.” —(Reuter)

Yugoslavs Want

LONDON, May 22

Edvard Kardeij, Yugoslav
Foreign Minister, quoted by Bel-
grade radio to-day, told the Na-
tional Assembly that Yugoslavia
wants to establish epelgh:
bourly relations with Italy” despite
the injustice done_to Yugoslavia
by the peace treaty.

But this he said depended on the
extent to which ri sible circles
in Italy were willing to replace
the “old imperialist policy by a
realistic policy of peaceful ‘ co-
operation and mutual respect for
peoples on both sides of the An-
tarctic. He said that Yugoslavia’s
attitude to Greece could be
summed up in one word—“peace”’.

MeCloy Tells |SCHU

Germans To
Repay Jews

HANOVER, British Zone, May 22,

American Ne Commissioner
John Me Cloy to-day urged the
German people to repay the Jews
for their persecution in the Past.
Mr. Me Cloy, speaking at a time
when anti-semitism is growing in
many parts of ‘West Germany,
said: “The peoples outside Ger-
many, and I am sure all right
thinking Germans, feel that one
of the gravest injustices the mod-
ern world has witnessed was un- |
fortunately committed on German
soil—the Nazi persecution of Jews!
and, those who dared to resist.

No one can help those who are

|





dead. The German people, new-'|

ever, can demonstrate their good-
will by faking prompt and
generous action to restituie to the

persecutees that which is justly ||

theirs.

Such action should not need
proging from any allied source.
t is an obligation, moral more
than economic, which the German
people must meet. ‘The spirit and
speed with which it is met will
do much to determine the attitude
of other peoples, so many of whose
lives have been disrupted and im-
paired by the aggressions and
cruel ties of the past. But even
more important, it will mark the
development of the new Ger-
many’s moral structure.—Reuter.

\Czechs Throw

A Bomb

FLORENCE, May 22.

Czechoslovakia to-day threw a
bombshell into the opening session
of the United Nations Educational,
Scientific and Cultural Orgeniss -
tion (U.N.E.S.C.O.) meeting here
by demanding the expulsion of
Nationalist China,

“The presence of a Kuomintang
delegation at this Conference is
illegal” declared Czechoslovak
delegate Adolf Hoftmeister, Minis-
ter in Paris. —_

“In the name of my Government
I request the expulsion of this
group”.

Hoffmeister was supported b:
Hungarian delegate Gabor Tolnai,
Minister in ome, who fore-

shadowed a walkout of the east-
ern European delegations if the
demand is not accepted.

“My delegation feels it cannot
remain unless the true Govern-
ment of China is represented” he
said,

Poland, third eastern European
state in the U.N.E.S.C.O., was not
represented at the opening session.

Conference President Dr. E.
Ronald Walker of Austr@lia, de-
clared the meeting incompetent to
deal with the question until the
credentials of all countries’ have
been examined by a nine-nation
Credentials Committee die to re-
port later to-day.—Reuter.

LONDON.

The well - dressed maie is a
“three-hat” man.

London’s mid-town hatters are
insisting that every modern Beau
Brummell should have at leasi
one hat for town wear, another for
the country and a third for week-
ends.

The headgear experts state that
for town wear the black homburg
and the “London-shape” bowler
(derby) with narrow brim are to-
day “the correct vogue”.

“Although the bowler suffered
a waftime eclipse, it is now back
in full popularity for city wear.’

The hatters obviously are fol-

The boater is out too. Its last
brief revival was in the early 30's
when the Duke of Windsor, then
Prince of Wales, brought it back
into short-lived favour.

The main reason for its disap-
pearance—it is now only made for
special orders from scheols—is the
difficulty of getting the straw,
which is imported from Japan.

Panamas will also be out this
summer, as they are imported from
Ecuador for re-export. So only a
few “rejects” will be available in
the home market.

The black silk topper is almost
unobtainable because Britain has
ceased to import the essential
plush from France. But grey Ascot
toppers are plentiful. They are
made of felt.

Girls Always Win

LONDON.
When it comes to growing up.
the girls always win.
Science has now discovered that
girls grow up two to two and one-
half years earlier than boys.

Three British scientists, R. H.
Cawley, Hamilton Hogben and J.
A. Waterhouse, in an article in the
British Journal of Social Medi-
cine, established proof of this by
examining 642 boys and 662 girls,
from 8% to 17 years of age in the
Tottenham area of London.



They state, in an analysis of
their findings, that at an age vary
ing from 10% to 11% the growth
| of girls, in all dimensions, is much
more noticeable, while two to two
and one-half years Jater there is
a swing round in favour of boys.

Before the age of 12, girls on
the average are more long-headed
than boys, but after that age they
become more broad-headed.

At 17 boys are bigger in main
body dimensions except pelvic,
shoulder and face widths.

Charles Woolley, K.C.M.G., Governor of British’ Guiana, in
his 90-minute address at the Ceremonial opening of the
Third Session of the Colony’s Fourth Legislative Counci!
on Wednesday, May 17, 1950.

B.G. Had $22m
Revenue In ’49

Advocate Correspondent!
GEORGETOWN.
British Guiana’s revenue for
1949 amounted to approximately
$22 million and expenditure to
just under $21 million, including
capital expenditure of some
$1,150,000 on various items pro-
vided for under the Ten-Year
Development Plan or since agreed
upon as necessary additions to
that plan :
This left a balance of approxi-
mately $1 million to be carried to
accumulated surplus balances
which at December 31, 1949, stood
in round figures at $7% million.
Reviewing the position at the
opening of the Legislative Coun-
cil last Wednesday, the Governor,
Sir Charies Woolley, said...
“This satisfactory result was,
however. only achieved by taking
to revenue a_ sinking fund
amounting to $2,180,000 and re-
leased by the conversion of a loan
of $5 million raised in 1929.
Excluding on the one hand this
extraordinary receipt and on the
other, the Development Plan
expenditure the Colony’s accounts

for 1949 only just balanced,

Excessed Revenue

The budget for 1950 has been
balanced without recourse to
extra taxation, but again, only
barely so, with an estimated
excess of revenue over expendi-
ture at the end of 1950 of a mere ;

(Barbados

$300,000. This means that any}

substantial supplementary expen-@2
diture during the current year®
due to unforeseen circumstances,
and some have already been re-
vealed, must be met by inroads

Commenting on this situation. the
Governor emphasised that “cau-
tion is therefore necessary, and
we must therefore reduce such
expenditure to what is absolutely
essential unless it can be shown
to be in itself productive.

The situation appears more
grave When it is realised that the
yg me floods which marked
the close of 1949, caused great
loss of crops and livestock, dam-
age to roads, drainage and irriga-
tion works, and seriously affected
sugar and other production. These
floods will involve expenditure of
nearly $1 million—and for which
there is no _ provision in this
year’s budget—in the form of re-
lief works, assistance to farmers
for rehgbilitation of their fields
and repairs to communications
and drainage works,

The Colony’s financial resources
have been further strained by the
adoption of the recommendations
of the Commissions appointed in
1948 for revision of salaries and
wages of Government, employees,
employees in the Transport and
Harbours Dept., and Primary
School teachers. The adoption of
these recommendations has added
to the expenditure side of the
Colony’s budget a permanent re-
current charge of no less than
2% million dollars.

DELICATE

Sir Charles was discussing the
report of the Standing Closer As-
sociation Committee advocating a
British Caribbean Federation, “It
is, I feel.” he said, “particulariy
important that the far reachins
proposals in this report should be
as widely publicised as possible,
so that the people of British Gui-
ana come to no final conclusions
upon them under any misappre-
hension of what they are and what
they mean. We should neither
accept it blindly nor reject it out
of hand in any mood of splendd
isolation.

His Excellency expressed the
view that it is common ground
that the common interests of the
Caribbean territories call for
closer association, and suggested
that the real question which, in
his opinion, is exercising the minds
of Guianese is whether or not that
closer association can best be
brought about by political federa-
tion of the kind proposed.

True Interests

“You have to ask yourselves,”
he added,” and decide where,
when all the pros and cons have
been thrashed out, the balance of
advantage and the true interests
of British Guiana lie.

As the Secretary of State has
assured you His Majesty’s Govern-
ment do not look upon federation
as a means of avoiding its respon-
sibilities or as in amy way pre-

judicing dev. of self -

ters. The personnel of that Com-
mission and its exact terms of
reference are now being considered
by the Secretary of State and the

ommission itself should arrive
in British Guiana before the end

pealed to all concerned to devote
both time and serious study to
this matter and be ready to give
the Commission their considered
views as the form of Constitution
which they frankly believe would

be in the best interests of the
people of British Guiana and its

Smoking May
Cause Cancer

SARANAC LAKE, New York,
May 18
Cancer of the lung attacks men
almost exclusively, and appears
to be linked to cigarette smoking
according to Dr. Alton Ochner,
President of the American Cancer



Society.

“Cancer of the lung has become
a frequent disease among men and

continues to increase,” he said in

an address here.
Although not yet proven, ihe

cause is probably cigarette smok-

ing, since the incidence of lung
cancer parallels smoking.

The disease seems to attack men
almost exclusively — by-passing
even women who smoke heavily,”
he added.

Dr. Ochtier said that X-ray
was one of the best ways of de-
tecting cancer. In a talk before
physicians, he recommended re-
moval of the entire lung in treat-
ment of lung cancer.—Reuter.

Britain's rising wholesale prices
belie Sir Stafford Cripps’ fore-

only a mild repercussion in the
cost of living.

After being reduced, to a

are rising briskly.

Wool prices showed the sharp-

VEGETABLES





WITHIN recent month

grown in this island have exceeded local
requirements and growers have
ready sale overseas tor several tons.
In an interview with this newspaper Mr.
W. A. Crawford, M.C.P. who is the pro-
prietor of a large garden in Christ Church
said that he was fortunate in having orders
for about ten tons of vegetables within the
next few weeks. Goddard & Sons are also,
it is understood, exporting large quantities
of vegetables to British Guiana. But even
with the quantities of vegetables sent out
of the island, satisfaction of the local house-
wives market still leave thousands of
pounds of vegetables available for sale as

animal food.

Barbados has been and still is importing
from other West Indian islands large quan-
In 1948 canned
and preserved vegetables imported into
this island amounted to 95,811 lbs. at a cost
of £3,832 while imported fresh vegetables
for the same period amounted to 145,467
Ibs. at a cost of £2,180. This meant that the
sum of $29,083 had been spent on imported
food which could have been partly sup-
plied in the local market. The figures for
1949 show that there has been an increase
in both canned preserved and fresh vege-

and preserved vegetables cost this island

tables.

cost $11,259; a total of $37,544.

The reasons for surplus vegetables are
easy to seek. In the first place much of the
land at one time “dedicated” to cane has
been released. This was due to the excel-
lent returns from the new varieties and
improved methods of cultivation. It was
found that the war time regulation compel-
ling owners to plant a certain percentage
of their lands in food crops was a blessing
in disguise. The returns of the land were
greater and in many instances the econo-
mic position of the small land owner was

improved,

In addition to all this, there was the sys-
tem instituted by Mr. H. M. Halcrow then
Deputy Director of Agriculture who
encouraged peasants to plant vegetables in
good quantities after showing them im-
proved methods of handling their gardens.
The Government took over the schemes
supported by Colonial Development and
‘Welfare supplied funds for irrigation, thus
changing many derelict gardens into eco-

nomic holdings.

"It is a happy discovery that vegetables
are additional means of earning revenue
but care must be taken to ensure that the
exit of vegetables is due to satisfied de-
mand and not to inability of housewives to
afford current prices. Trinidad and British
Guiana are said to afford two fine markets
for. garden vegetables and with a little care
exercised and proper methods of grading
and handling it seems possible to tap a
source of revenue which does not interfere
with the export trade of any other West
Indian colony. But it would be no economy
to sell all our vegetables and go short our-

selves.

With the cost of living rising unexpected-
ly and in some instances out of proportion,
it would be a necessary precaution to en-
sure that in an effort to export goods we
do not unbalance the diet of a people who
have just begun to learn the importance of »
knowing the caloric value of certain forms

of diet.

In addition to the potential export mar-
ket for fresh vegetables Barbados might
consider the next step which is the canning
of vegetables and fruit juices. This indus-
try has already found protagonists quali-
fied and willing to do the job in this island;
but there must be encouragement and help.
At least there must be no obstacles in the
way of taxation on new industries.



@ur Readers Say:

To the Editor, The Advocate
SIR,—During the last few weeks
your newspaper has been doing a
service to the community by
keeping track of the insanitary
ns of the many alley
ways in Bridgetown. The result
has been satisfactory to every
member of the community who
has any aesthetic sense.

It is however strange to find possi

as soon as something was
done to correct the evil and the
hawkers were being removed
from the corners of alleys where
Â¥ instituted the collection of
with their skins and shells,

an of the Sanitary
Commission and a member of the
Scavenging Committee should
ask the Commissioner of Police
for a.chance for these offenders.

The answer to this problem is
markets. The Government has
been toying for many years with
the idea of district markets and
up to now nothing has been done
except that a few people went
around the parish pointing out
the spots which they considered
the most suitable.

If these markets had. been
erected there would have not been
this collection of hawkers in the
alleys. They not only use the
gutters as dustbins but they cause
very unsanitary conditions.

life is thus rooted in a great act

His gift to us. To be an example

5. IN PURITY. “Blessed are
the pure in heart, for they shali
see God”, said our Lord. Deep
down, we are called upon to be
sincere. Purity takes many forms;
there,is purity of motive; there is
purity of mind; there is purity of
body; there is purity of speech.
The secret of purity in all its
forms, is to possess what our
Lord called “an honest and good
heart”. Purity of motive and
intention, can only come when
the self is set on what is right;
unless God is our centre, motives
will be all wrong. When they are
wrong, we misunderstand our
own make up: minds will be out
of gear, our senses of sight and
hearing will be adjusted to the
wrong things, and we shall mis-
understand the real purpose of
our bodies, They are the instru-
ments through which character,
the real person, finds expression,
and for the Christian they are
temples of the Holy Ghost, who
remade us in Baptism and dwells
within us. Our bodies are for
use and not for misuse. When
the self is centred on something
other than God, then comes
everything that is vile; eyes
which delight in filth, ears which
listen to all that is sordid, minds
which think of what is base and
selfish, tongues which delight in
slander and untruth and bodies
used for impure and evil ends.
In all these ways there is much
impurity in our Island life. Don’t
despise your youth or allow others
to despise it by delighting in these
evil things. Sin never brings
happiness; it brings shame and
ruin. Sin is never happiness, and
although God means us to be
happy, He first requires us to be
loving, and sin is always se'fish.

What I have said, may sound
depressing, yet it is not really
depressing to assess as well as
we can, the dangers around us.
But the Christian life is a real
life, and in spite of the dangers,
we have assurance beyond all
measure. Last Thursday was
Ascension Day, the day on which
we commemorated Our Lord’s
return to Glory from whejce He
came, and where He now lives,
reigns and works, and no one
knows better than He, the dangers
which beset us in this life. Next
Sunday we shall think of His
promise fulfilled, when He poured
forth the Holy Spirit, to guide
us into all truth, to strengthen
us against all adversity, and to
build us up in love. By these
events in History, tested by cen-
turies of Christian endeavour, we
know that we have at-our dis-
posal thé Whole armour of God,
with every resource at our
disposal to enable us to live the
good life and so meet the tasks
of our own day and generation.
In the practical business of living.
it all comeg to this — you wil!
never have’a good society any-
where in the world, unless and
until the good men and
women. God requires you to be
good. Therefore go from _ this
service, remembering your heri-
tage and the noble people who
have served their fellows in days
gone by, and with your minds
made up that you will try tc
serve God and your fellows
better than ever before. There is
much to be done, but never
despise the simple things which
need doing from day to day.
These simple things provide some
of your best training, and sooner
than you think, you will find
yourselves men and women upon
whom the burden wil? fall. You
have no need to fear: the world
has been overcome, and the
power of God is yours—‘“Let no
man despise thy youth; but be
thou an ensample in word; in
manner of life; in love; in faith;
in purity. God bless you all.

YOUTH IS A STAGE The Public “Have A Look”

WHAT DID the public think of Britain’s
exclusive Fair for the trade?

On Saturday they had an opportunity of
seeing for themselves, and as always, the
Commonwealth Section was besieged by

e

The Nigerian stand attracted attention in
the first place because it is the only one which
boasts a film show. The film, which depicts
life in Nigeria, local customs, songs, agricul-
ture, and so on, runs continuously. The stand
itself is built in a corner, giving it a two-
sided effect, and it is both informative and
instructive. Diagrams in brilliant colour, sur-
realistic wall graphs, and relief maps, show

how important Nigerian products are—as

dollar earners. We see what efforts have been

made to stabilize prices by the setting up

of boards for cocoa, groundnuts, oil palm
products, and cotton; and how comparatively

simple it now is to travel long distances by
air.

Africans, in brilliant national dress, mostly
students, are in attendance, helping to “sell”
Nigeria.

compete with American cotton producers,
this fine Sea Island cotton is to be made in
wider lengths. At the moment it is only 36”
wide, but for Eastern markets, a greater
width is wanted. Only two mills in Lan-
eashire are engaged in making this cotton
at present, but they are able to supply al
that is required, by working at top pitch.

Her Majesty particularly liked a silky
cotton in soft grey, with a dark traced design
all over it.

A West Indian girl, in attendance on the
stall, told me she had been asked innumer-
able questions about cotton by the public.
“Though many of them” she said ruefully,
“thought Sea Island was an island in the
South Pacific! Many of the children wanted
to know how cotton was processed, and were
interested in the cotton bolls and beans on
the stand.”

The Trinidad stall has concentrated more
on curios this year—locally made dolls,
woodwork, straw and raffia baskets. The
Swedish buyers were mostly interested in
the raffia and straw work; Egyptian buyers
wanted the coconut oil.

As for the public, “Well, most of them were
surprised to find that there is other rum be-
sides Jamaican!” I was told. 5

This year, British Guiana has a stand for
the first time. It features mainly timber—
the floor and walls are examples'of the fine
woods available.

“The public’s interest was most flattering”
they told me,, “and Continental buyers, one
from Denmark in particular, said if it were
possible to buy this wood in quantity, they
would use nothing else for flooring.” The
particular woods were wallaba, a herring-
bone pattern and basket pattern timber; and
purpleheart, which can be polished to a deep
warm purple shade,

_ They have received enough enquiries to
justify them going ahead with production of
greenheart, purpleheart, and mora, among
other types of timber-woods that until now
have been ignorgd.

In general, women were interested in
fruit and curios, men in rum and cigars, and
children in everything.

Hong Kong told me they could have used
“a flying squad to keep the public from
swarming all over the stall.”

Pakistan had dozens of enquiries for phool-
kari—beautiful lengths of glowing material
woven with threads of gold, which is not for
sale, and for tiny pointed sandals, also only on
show. However, trade buyers were more in-
terested in their export goods, which ranged
unromantically but usefully, from footballs
to boxing gloves.

It is noticeable, on enquiring at all th:
stands, that the public are displaying much
greater interest in the different countries. In
general, they ask intelligent questions, and
appreciate intelligent answers.

Scout Thanks

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—As it was impossible for
us to suitably thank those who as-
sisted in making the concert re-
cently given by the Scout Troop
of the 36th Barbados (Holy Trinity
Group) for the magnificent suc-
cess it was, may we try to do so in
your valuable columns.

At the outset, we sincerely thank
the Rev. O. E. Jones for kindly
allowing us to give the concert in
the school room; incidentally we

opportunity to express our thanks
to the reverend gentleman for his
kindness in permitting us to do
so.

We cannot even here adequately
express our gratitude to the ar-
tistes from Bridgetown whose
gratuitous performances were so
greatly appreciated by the audi-
ence, The exquisite saw solos of
Mr. Ben Gibson, the glorious
singing of Messrs. Reeves and
Morris; the beautiful accompani-
ments of Mr, Bentley Callender
and -the incomparable tap-danc-
ing of Mr. H. Springer will not
be easily forgotten. We also thank
the lady and the gentleman who
so ably assisted Mr. Reeves in the
play “the cost of a bus ride.” We
thank them all for the cultural
influence they assisted in impart-
ing to our concert and hope that
they will long be spared to carry
on such work for the upliftment
of the community.

We especially desire to thank
Messrs. Ben Gibson, E. Lorde and
Charles Reeves. The first two gen-
tlemen gratuitously placed their
cars at our disposal for the con-
veyance of the Bridgetown artistes
to and from the concert thus
minimising our expenditure con-
siderably. Mr. Reeves was very

ints and suggestions.

We tender heartfelt thanks, to
that inspiring and social worker
Mrs. J. B. Broomes. This lady
not only rendered two inspiring
recitations most beautifully, but
generously came to our assist
in selecting items for the -
gramme; we greatly apprecfate
her help and influence.

It is particularly gratifying to
hear residents of other parishes
say that there are ladies and gen-
tlemen in St. Philip who possess
dramatic ability. We offer thanks
to such ladies and gentlemen af
Mr. Ianthe Marshall, the Miss
Matrid_ Lyte, and Mar-
lorie Daniel, Meide ae
a ilma Greenidge, S,
Kennett Marshall, Calvert Taylor,
Rudolph Sealy and Granville
Forde, who, at no small incon-
venience to themselves gave us
unstintingly of their time and
talents,

Our warmest thanks are also
due to Mr.. Arthur Lucas who
performed the duties of chairman
most efficiently, to Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Nurse for kindly lending
us their piano, to Miss M. Clarke
who lent us screens, to those who
lent us lamps, chairs and benches,
and ali others who assisted us in

Imperials Can Join
To The Editor The Advocate
SIR,— With reference to Cap-
tain A. H. V. Wakeham’s letter
regarding the formation of a
Canadian Legion Branch in Bar-
bados, the Captain in suggesting
this is performing a real public
service for the commuity.
Having just returned to settle
here, and as a Canadian Legionaire
of twenty odd years the only
criticism I have to offer is that
the fact was not made plain that
Imperial Veterans are just as
welcome and eligible to join as
Canadians, in fact the Secretaries

of our three clubs in Victoria are s

still ex-imperials.

Also for your readers’ informa-
tion the Canadian Legion at the
time of devaluation fought for and
got for the Imperial Veterans in
Canada a raise in their pensions
equivalent to Canadian Veterans.

Disappointed

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—I should like to endorse
fully most of the remarks of your
letter writer “Jackson No, 2” in
your issue of the 18th inst re-
garding the advertisements that
have developed into a regular and
almost continuous feature of the
Radio Distribution programmes.

It seems that the sponsors of
this type of advertising do not
know or realize that it is objec-
tionable to many normal sub-
scribers,

In my opinion the form that
most of the advertising takes is
ill-timed, ill-conceived and un-
pleasant, and so far as I and many
wares are concerned, completely
spbils the enjoyment of what could
very often be pleasant and con-
tinuous music and/or entertain-
ment.

I should certainly never buy
any of the ‘products that are
thrust down my throat continu-
ously and literally, “ad Nauseam.”

Candy Vendors | «

Leave Bus Stand

ROBYN STREET "BUS STAND

is now freeg from the sweet,
bread and cocoanut vendors who
formerly creatéd a nuisance to
passengers alighting from or
awaiting "buses.

Many sweet vendors formerly
took up their stand under the
shelters in this Bus Stand but now
that they have been ordered to
remove, passengers have more

Before action was taken against
the vendors, a regular sight was
to see them making use of the
shelters during a downpour of rain
while on the other hand passengers
had to shelter under trees.

IE BALCONY of the new

Plaza Theatre at Probyn
Street is now being erected and
the ground is being levelled for
the flooring Workmen are
plastering the walls inside while
another set of labourers are work-
ing on the roof.

{
Work on the front view of the}

theatre is also progressing rapidly
and it is expected that in a few
months’ time the opening perform-
ance will take place.

ppeAsemrasss alighting from
"buses entering Trafalgar
Square from the Christ Church
and St. Philip districts are making
full use of the footpath recently
erected in Trafalgar Square.

A few passengers told the
Advocate yesterday that they
would suggest a shelter erected
over the footpath. They said that
when suggesting this they had
taken into consideration the fact
that the “hot weather” will soon
he here.

One of these passengers, who
had visited England on manv oc-
easions, said that in Middles-
borough he had seen the same
type of footpath erected with rails
along both sides. Openings were
at two points and the footpath
was covered. He pointed out
that this type of footpath also
served a good purpose by forcing
passengers to queue for "buses in-
stead of rushing up and pushing
ahead of those who have been
waiting for about ten or fifteen
minutes.

EARLY ALL the temporary

sign posts in Trafalgar
Square are now being replaced by
islands. Workmen were busy
yesterday erecting an island op-
posite the Public Buildings. This
will carry the sign which directs

traffic over the Chamberlain
Bridge,
HIEVES WERE busy over the
week-end and four losses,

ranging from a fowl to a suit,
were reported.

Reginald Smith of Baxters Road
reported the loss of 30 lbs. of lead
weight valued $6.00 from his
residence on Saturday.

The loss of six fowls valued
$6.80, was reported by Viola Sealy
of Licorish Village, My Lord’s
Hill. She stated that they were
removed from her residence
during Saturday night.

Mr. T. S. Branch of Belle Planta-
tion, reported the loss of a battery
valued. $39.07 from.a motor lorry
in a garage at the same plantatiou
during Friday night.

The battery is the property of
the Trustees of the Estate of the
Earl of Harewood.

A grey tropical suit is reported
to be lost by Robert Thorpe of
Chapel Gap, Paynes Bay, St.
James. He stated that it is valued
$35 and was removed from his
mother’s residence at Paynes Bay
between 8.30 p.m. and 10.30 p.m.
on Saturday.

IGHT SHOPKEEPERS were

charged yesterday with fail-
ing to exhibit a copy of the Shop
Orders 1946. Shopkeepers are
being charged daily for this
offence and the Advocate was told
yesterday that the majority of
shopkeepers prefer to be charged
than spending one shilling to ob-
tain an Order from the Colonial
Secretary’s Office.

NLY THREE motorists were

charged with exceeding the
speed limit over the week-end and
the same amount for failing to stop
at Major Koads. Four motorists
were charged with parking in pro-
hibited areas.

Cold Storage
Needed

Six thousand flying fish were





jbrought in by the Government

Research Fishing Boat ‘“Investi-
gator” last night. The majority
of these fish were caught by the
“gill net” while about 1,200 ‘vere
scooped by the ordinary flyin», fish
nets,

In an_ interview’ with
Advocate last night, Mr. D. :
Wiles, Fisheries Officer, said that
he was of the opinion that the
island could double its catches of
fish if there was a large Cold
Storage and a good price offered
for the fish.

An article by George Hunte ap-
peared in the “Evening Advocate”
under the head “Great Jumping
Fishes” which referred to the large
quantities of Bonitoes seen off
the St. James Coast.

With reference co mis Mr. Wiles
said last night that as yet he was
not even worrying to notice the
Banitoes because of the large
catches of flying fish. He is afraid
that the fish would have to be
thrown: away because they wold
be too much for the consumption
of Barbadians.

He says that the Bonitoes are an
easy target, but “what is the use
ef catching them when there is no
need to.”

Mr, Wiles pointed out that there
is a great need for a Cold Storage
in Barbados,

There were many large catches
of fish during the month and a
total of 90,265 lb. of fish was re-
corded at the rural market sheds;.
Skeete’s Bay shed in St. Philip

Tanker Brings

Kerosene

Supplies of 206,338 gallons of
gasoline and 101,421 gallons of
kerosene oil from Trinidad arrived
for Barbados by the oil tanker
“Rufina” on Sunday,

Of this shipment, 180,784 gallons
of gasoline were consigned to
Messrs DaCosta & Cog Ltd. and
30,060 gallons of kerosene for Gen-
eral Traders Ltd. while 25,554 gal-
lons of gasoline and 71,361 gallons
of kerosene came to Messrs R. M.
Jones & Co., Ltd.

The “Rufina” was shortly after
its arrival taken to Spring
Gardens, Black Rock, where it
usually discharges its fuel.

Also arriving on Sunday from
Trinidad with fuel was Schooner
“Gita M”. This vessel brought
212 drums of gasoline and 40
drums of cardium compound.

Death By
Misadventure

Death by misadventure was the
verdict returned by a 9-man jury
when an inquiry into the death of
Orlando Sealy of Kew Land, St.
Thomas, was held by Mr. C. L. D.
Walwyn, Coroner of District “D”,
yesterday.

Sealy, an 11-year-old schoolboy,
while fishing and throwing stones
into the tank at Bagatelle Planta
tion on Sunday, May 21, slipped
and fell and was drowned before
he could be rescued.









MAY MEETING

| The annual Genera] Meeting of
| the West India Committee will, be
held on May 24

Their mission was to get as
many Venezuelans as possible to

| Spend their summer holidays in

Barbados. Mr. Goddard said that
the prospects of success were very
good . ‘They were well re-
ceived wherever they went
Venezuela.

Mr. Iverson, he said, is going to
Trinidad this week to finalise cer-
tain arrangements in connection
with the plan for getting more
Venezuelans here. But there was
one thing Barbados must always
remember. They must always
advertise.

One only had to go outside Bar-
bados, Mr. Goddard said, to real-
ise at once how little Barbados is
known outside. Venezuelans must
be told all the year round “come
to Barbados.”

DECISION REVERSED

Because the compiaint left oui
| the words “as near as practicable,”
j the Judges of the Assistant Court
of Appeal, Mr. G. L. Taylor and
Mr. H. A. Vaughn yesterday
reversed a decision of His Wor-
} sm, Mr. D, D. Morris. They struck
out a case which the police brought
| against Stanley Hawkins, c.aiming
that he did not stop his car before
he had entered the carriage way
of Constitution Road, a major
road. Mr. Morris had convicted
Hawkins. Both the police and
he appealed against Mr. Morris’
decision.





i

The alleged offence was commit-
ted on February 3 when Hawkins’
car became involved in an accident
with Morace Rock of George
Street. Rock was driving a motor
cycle at the time of the accident
He was struck and became un-
conscious 7

No Decision

Their Honours said that they
were making no decision as to who
was right or who was wrong, but
since the complaint had left out
the words “as near as practicable”
before entering the carriage way,
they had to strike out the case.

The “Mormacland” is scheduled

night for Rio. This vessel is one
of the freighters of the Moore,
MacCormack Line.



A School Magazine

ANOTHER issue of the Provi-
dence School Magazine is just off
the Press and is an improvement
on those of the past.

Its outstanding feature is the
contributions by the pupils of the
School. Here they find outlet for
their energies and expression
There are other contributors ano
chief among these is Dr. F. N
Grannum, Senior Medical Officer
The genial doctor writes showing
“How we can protect ourselve:
against certain Diseases.” Unfor-
tunately his article carries the
title with Dr. Farnum as the authe+
but this in no way lessens the
value of the contribution.

The Providence School Magazine
is a fine contribution to the de-
velopment of the _ elementary
school child in this island.



Broken Winch
Detains Vessel

Unloading of the motor vessel
“Student Prince” was held up
yesterday when a winch broke.

The Student Prince was here
since Sunday with a load of 670
casks of salted fish for this port.
While discharging the cargo into
lighters the winch gave away.

Usually, vessels bringing fish
from Newfoundland come along-
side the wharf to discharge their
cargoes but the Student Prince
was anchored off Pelican Island
because it had on board high ex-
plosives for British Guiana.

The vessel may be completely
discharged of its cargo on Wed-
nesday.

Plaintiff IU:
Suit Adjourned

THE Common Pleas suit of
C.deCourcey Garner of Bank
Hall, St. Michael (plaintiff) and
Blanche Small and Edgar
Small of near Barker’s
Corner, St. Thomas (defendants)
was not heard as scheduled be-
fore His Honour the Chief Judge,
Sir Allan Collymore, yesterday,
because Blanche Small is ill and
cannot attend Court for the next
seven days.

The suit has been adjourned
until next Tuesday.

The Chief Judge explained to
the Special Jury that had been
Summoned that the defendants
were not represented by Counsel,
and that Blanche had tendered a
medical certificate from Dr.
Charles Manning. The Court had
got in touch with Dr. Manning,
who had told of the nature of the
defendant's illness, and had ex-
pressed the opinion that she
would be able to come to Court
in seven days’ time.

The plaintiff is represented by
Mr. E. K. Walcott K.C., instructed
by Messrs. Cottle Catford & Co.





Bodily Harm 20/-

CLEMENT HARPER of Jackson
St. Michael was found guilty of
inflicting bodily harm on Carl
Alleyne also of Jackson yesterday
when he appeared before His
Worship Mr. H. A. Talma.

He was ordered to pay a fine of
20/- and 2/- costs or in defauit
undergo one month’s imprison-
ment. The fine is to be paid in
14 days. B

ADOLPHUS FENTY of Upper
Kew Road was fined 20/- and 1/-
costs to be paid in 14 days or in

prisonment by His Worship Mr.
H. A. Talma yesterday for not
stopping at a major road while
riding the bicycle M-3060 on Bank
Hal! Cross Road.

The offence was

discharging this, the driver would have complied

with the requirements of the law.

ANOTHER DECISION
REVERSED

THE Judges of the Assistant
Court of Appeal, Mr. G. L. Taylor
and Mr, H. A. Vaughn yesterday
reversed a decision of Mr. E. A.
McLeod, Police Magistrate of
District “A” and dismissed a case
which C. M. Greenidge brought
against I. Barker claiming that he
refused to give up possession of
a house which he rented from
Joseph Barker in Suttle Street.

Mr. McLeod had ordered that
Barker be ejected. Greenidge was
the agent of Joseph Barker, the
landlord, while I. Barker appeared
as the agent of the tenant.

The case had previously been
heard in the Lower Court and
had been withdrawn because the
second notice which had been
given to the tenant had not been
correctly made out. Greenidge
gave another notice after the case
had been withdrawn, holding it to
be a second notice on the basis
that the first notice still held.

‘fheir Honours pointed out that
if they gave judgment on that
ground, it would mean that one
could give a first notice any length
of time before the second notice.
The tenant was fully justified in
thinking that since so"long a time
had elapsed during the first and
second notice, the landlord did
not intend to take further legal
action.

Indecent Language: 20/-
AUBREY CADDLE a 32-year-

old labourer of Mapp Hill, St.
Michael was fined 20/- or one
month's imprisonment by

His Worship Mr. H. A.
Talma yesterday when he was
found guilty of using indecent

language on Probyn Street.

On May 21, Caddle was over-
heard using indecent language by
a constable and was spoken to,
but still continued to do so, and
was arrested. >

After Lunch

At tea the MCC had scored 120
for 3 on a pitch that looked a good
deal easier than before lunch,
Simpson was then undefeated at
65. Williams claimed all three
of the wickets. Simpson and
Robertson had put on 52 for the
opening partnership, when Robert-
son fell to Rae at long-on. Eight
ruas later Edrich was out l|.b.w,
for 2, playing back to a ball which
went through quickly.

Dewes, the Cambridge blue,
wes again disappointing, hitting
across a delivery which shattered
his stumps at 104. Though Simp-

inches away, Barryw playing on
the right wing got ssion, but
with goal-keeper Atkins only to
overcome passed the ball to the
left wing as the defenders sprung
to the attack, and so missed a
valuable opportunity to score the
first goal of the match.
Pressure Kept Up

The pressure was kept up, but
the partan defence worked
splendidly and averted several
dangerous movements. The efforts
of the Bank Hall team were
eventually rewarded, however. A
good try was sent in and centre-
forward Wood got to the ball just
as the goal-keeper was about to
save. He guided it smartly into
the nets. Further good attempts

Contributory factors lo the latest Increase :ire higher prices for cereals and "other lood and tobacco." resulting from the iiu.il abolition of subsidies on Bctimal feedini: stuffs anj the rise in the price of butter. Wool prices showed the sharpest increases among industrial materials and manufactures but non-ferrous metals, particularly copper, lead and Zinc, also were substantially up. At 249.8 the index is now 19.1 points or more than eight per cent above the nf duvajtmhm level.

Mat 2:1. 193(1 VEGETABLES WITHIN recent monthi VCgvtMUfll grown in this island have exceeded local requirements and growers have ftwud ready sale overseas lor several tons. In an interview with this newspaper Mr. W. A. Crawford, M.C.P. who is the proprietor of a large garden in Christ Church said that he was fortunate in having orders for about ten Ions of vegetables within the next lew weck.v t i.>ddard & Sons are also, it is understood, exporting large quantities of vegetables to British Guiana. But even with the quantities of vegetables sent out of the island, satisfaction of the local housewives market still leave thousands of pounds of vegetables available for sale as animal food. Barbados has been and still is importing from other West Indian islands large quantities of fresh vegetables. In 1948 canned and preserved vegetables imported into this island amounted to 95,811 lbs. at a cost of £3,832 while imported fresh vegetables for the same period amounted to 145,467 lbs. at a cost of il 2,180. This meant that the sum of $29,083 had been spent on imported food which could have been partly supplied in the local market. The figures lor 1949 show that there has been an increase in both canned preserved and fresh vegetables. Last year 119,470 lbs. of canned and preserved vegetables cost this island $26^85 while 151,652 lb*, of fresh vegetables cost |l J,259; a total of $37,544. The reasons for surplus vegetables are easy to seek. In the lirst place much of the land at one time "dedicated" to cane has been released. This was due to the excellent returns from the new varieties and improved methods of cultivation. It was found that the war time regulation compelling owners to plant u certain percentage of their lands in food crops was a blessing in disguise. The returns of the land were greater and in many instances the economic position of the small land owner was improved. In addition to all this, there was the system instituted by Mr. H. M. Halcrow then Deputy Director of Agriculture who encouraged peasants to plant vegetables in good quantities after showing them improved methods of handling their gardens. The Government look over the schemes supported by Colonial Development and Welfare supplied funds for irrigation, thus changing many derelict gardens into economic holdings. It is a happy discovery that vegetables are additional means of earning revenue but care must be taken to ensure that the exit of vegetables is due to satistled demand and not to inability of housewives to afford current prices. Trinidad and British Guiana are said to afford two fine markets for garden vegetables and with a little care exercised and proper methods of grading and handling it seems possible to tap a source of revenue which does not interfere with the export trade of any other West Indian colony. But it would be no economy to sell all our vegetables and go short ourselves. With the cost of living rising unexpectedly and in some instances out of proportion, it would be a necessary precaution to ensure that in an effort to export goods we do not unbalance the diet of a people who have just begun to learn the importance of knowing the caloric value of certain forms of diet. In addition to the potential export market for fresh vegetables Barbados might consider the next step which is the canning of vegetables and fruit juices. This industry has already found protagonists qualified and willing to do the job in this island; but there must be encouragement and help. At least there must be no obstacles in the way of taxation on new industries. YOUTH IS A a.. ACE Hy Hi.

In faith, In Sermon ,,,.,, hrd ti ,h. Y-*jlh Service held tf J*mr* Str**t Church on Sunday. THROUGHOUT ur Commonwealth, young people are meetina* tuttether today, in churches and in the open air. to join In an eel of worship to Almighty God; in pray for Hi* guidance on their lives, ami to dedicate Ihemselvelo His service and the service o( Iheir fellow* This is no empty or formal meeting of young people On the contrary, it b, detigned to help them to know how good a thing it Is to be alive; to learn something of the great tasks which wait to bacromplished and to understand that as the heirs of tomorrow. they Oil an important place In human life. "Let no man despise thy youth". Youth is a stage through which all must past in the course of their lives, and so Rrst let me say something about this word despise". To despise a person is to think ill of him, and to regard him of no account. That Is a sin; for human beings, no matter what their ages may be. are sacred beings and of great value to God People who have long passed their youth somctimo-; despise the young people of their day. and complain that the voung folks of today are far worse than when I hey were young. I do not believe that. The youth of any age are the youth appropriate to that age and that age alone, and they take their own tone from (he tone of the age In which they live. Whatever defects there are In young people In any age, they andefects due to that age, for which the o'der people are in Urge measure responsible; they have failed to give proper guidance and encouragement And have failed In example, and it is no good blaming the youngsters. On the other hand, young people in every age are faced with the temptation to think and act as though they alone are up to date, and that older people ore "old fashioned and generally a nuisance. The older ones here this afternoon have been through that stage, and we thought Just the same thing. But it is quite false, and to hold such a view has often proved the ruination of many a young life. The truth Is that youth Is a necessary stage in life; li is an Important stage, valuable for Its own sake and to be used as a necessary period In •he training and building up of character Wisdom only comes with years: knowledge only romes by bard work and application, and nt no time Is evcivthin given to us ready made. We are not machines, but human being*. stamped with the Image of God, possessing reason, conscience and will, -nd thus capable of knowing. Judging nnd doing. To "despise" is a sin; sin comes from yielding to temptation and yoi* have it in your own power It) remove Ibis temptation to despise your youth. How la It to be done' 1 By showing yourselves examples In various wayi which S Paul set down in hia letter to Timothy. Let us look at them for a few minutes. I. IN WORD. Do you ever think what a grand thing it la to nble to apeak? By It. we give expression lo our thoughts, the %  cal content of our minds; through l we receive knowledge of the content of the minds of others. Speech is In tho nature of a sacrament When we use lips, teeth, tongue, throat muscles, to produce the sounds which we call fords, we arc in fact using the outward and visible things by which we exchange thoughts. H .'i a precious gift, but badly aLmsed. Speak tho truth, keep a clean tongue and remember the warning of S. James that it Is a the same tongue with which we bless God and curse men. It is specially needful that you set a good example in this matter, for one of the ttcnetting sins of all small communities Is irresponsible gossip, which give rise to the wildest rumours and develops Into slander which means that human characters are being taken away; lying la a shocking thing and It li for to* rife among us. 2. IN MANNER OF UrE. How do you live? You hove certain inescapable duties; to your homes, your parents and members of your family; to your schools, and If you are at work, to your employers; to the comlltua ty in general and above all to Uod. One distressing feature in our Island life is an increase in general rudeness. This is a ser.ous defect, for it means that people are losing all respect for Met) othe.-, u iid that u a very Md thing. Frequently young baft ami gi. is in meir ..•en*, appear to ttunK that lo be downright rude to other people is a sign of real manhood and real womanhood, li is. In fact, a sign of a thoroughly bad life. It will bring this fair Island into discredit if it continues, and the deep root from which it springs, is a dft line in reverence for Almighty God. Hence, your duty to God must come flrst. If you do not say your prayers, and learn to worship God and obey 11.s laws, you will never learn the proper respect which la due from you lo other people. This respect is due, just because they are people, and children of God as you are. Remember, it is people who matter, not Just you alone, but all psssplt, Your home, school and church training, as well as that which comes tu you through the various organisations to which you belong, is designed to make your manner of life acceptable lo God and honoured by me... But this cannot be done without your effort. 3. IN LOVB. Here m UM* the nature of God himself. We Christians believe that this universe Is the creation of God who kl Lot*; that we arc H> of His love, and that we too must be filled wit'i mid respond to that same love. We know its quality, through the hie und work of Our Ixird Jesus Christ. It is no weak thing, as Li sometimes supposed. It is self-sacriticing and heroic, and Its fullest expression lg seen hi the Cross, in I li daily expression Is seen in self-forgetfulues:t and real service to others. Tho, is the love which has inspired the noblest of men ami women through tho ages, it is the ground of evei y high endeavour. It has inspired every icnuine rOfWUIOr, whether he knew it or not, and it la ths key to unlock the door lo that wav of life which will resolve our |. < -rut dislre % %  > %  S iui|mit:iti' is it, that Our Ird summed op the whole purpose of life in the fulfilment of a two-fold law— Thou ahalt love the Lord Ihjf Ood, with all thy heart, with nil ihv mind, with all thy soul and with all thy strength; Thou shut love thy neighbour as thyself." We shall keep the second of these two laws, only so far as we keep the first. The biggest mistake being made today is the bethe second without boUtOriOJ ulKut the l.rst It is the mistake of most poli'.cians and most of the welfare workers. I: is ., tumplne delusioi. Love of God is the ro.it of all good living; love, of man i.the full, and you cannot have .inin; without the root. All of you. Irnm the youngest to the oldest, can cosily discover what kind of example you are in love, by looking at your attempts to keep both laws If you leave God out. you '/il entirely, and your behaviour to others, whether of your own age or not, will be anything but loving; you will want to serve yourselves, not others. 4. IN FAITH. You cannot take faith out of life We have to do many things on trust. The greatest scientists, in spite of alt their knowledge. In a real sense, still work In faith. They believe that this universe can be understood by the mind of man; that It is a rational thing and not chaotic; that with patience in observation and experiment and arrangement of facts etc. it will yield up its secrets. They have gone a long way to prove the truth of this basic assumption. If you go on a Journey for the first time, you find out all you can about the route before you start; you may not find out everything, and you will probably have to ask someone to show you the way When he gives you the information, you do not argue with him about It, you follow his directions, und when you begin to do that, you have given yourself to your guide In faith. In trust, and it is only at the end of the Journey that you will know the truth of your act of faith. Then it Is that you prove it, When Christian! say they have faith in God, the. do not use in empty phrase. The> know what G< 1 has done His Eternal Sn and what he t M does through the Holy Spun. they have some facts to go on. and so they commit themselves t< God in absolute personal trust life is thus rooted in a great act of Faith in God. His love and Hi plan, and it is God who makes this possible Religious Faith ii His gift to us. To be an example in Faith means that the circumstances of life, no matter how •dvesao, are not going to whelm us and drive us to seek for other gels. If people laugh at your faith, they laugh at that of which they know nothing, and the men gad women who want us to believe that man u aelfMilTh.ent. „n> juat the people who bring havoc and ruin Into life, aa they are doing iu the world today. 5. IN PURITY. "Blessed an the puro in heart, for they shal BOS tjoxl", s*id our Lord. Deep down, we are called upon lo be sincere. Punty lakes many forms; there, is purity of nioUve; there I purity of mind; there is purity a body; Uses* Is purity of speech The secret of purity in all its rorms. is to possess what our I-ord called "an honest and good heart". Purity of moUve and intention, can only come when the self is s.-i on what is right; unless God is our centre, motives will be all wrong. When they are wrong, we misunderstand our own make up: minds will be out of fear, our senses of sight and hearing will be adjusted to the wrung things, and we shall misunderstand the real purpose of our bodies. They are the Instruments through which character, the real person, ilnds expression, and for the Christian they arc temples of the Holy Ghost, who remade us in Baptism and dwells within us. Our bodies are Eos use and not for misuse. When Ihe self is centred on something other than God, then everything that is vile; eyes which delight In filth, ears which listen to all that Is sordid, mind* which think of whal is base and selfish, tongues which delight in slander and untruth and hodle* used for impure and evil ends. In all those ways there is much impurity In our Island life. Don't despise your vouth or allow others to despise it by delighting in these evil things. SJn never brings happiness; it brings shame and ruin. Sin is never happiness, and although God means us to be happy. He first requires us to be loving, and sin is glwaj What I have said, mav soum' depressing, yet it is not really depressing to assess as well us we can, the dangers around Bui the Christian life is a real life, and in spite of the dangci we have assurance tieyond measure. Last Thursday w_. Ascension Day, the day on which we commemorated Our Lord' return to Glory from whe|ce He came, nnd where He now lives, reigns and works, and knows better than He. the danger* which beset us in this life. Next %  uoday we sho'l think of His prouse fulrilled. when He poured fort', the Holy Spirit, to gu'de us into all truth, to strengthen us against all adversity, and ti build us up In love. By these events in History, tested by centuries of Christian endeavour, we know that we have at our disposal thai whole armour of God. with every resource at our disposal to enable us to live the good life and so meet Ihe task' of our own day and generaUon In the practical business of livhg. I all comes to this — you wilt good society anyh.i\ivhsre in ikr world, unless and ereXaro | God requires j until thcreja good men and .ulres you to be good. Therefore go from this serv.ee. remembering your heritage and the noble people who have served their fellows in days gone by. and with your minds made up thai you will try tserve God and your fellow* ba tt SJT than ever before There |i much to be done, but never despise Ihe simple things which need doing from day to day These simple things provide some of your best training, and sooner than you think, you will fin< yourselves men and women upon whom the burden wiirfall. You have no need to fear: the world has been overcome, and the power of God Is yours—"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an en sample in w*ord; in manner of life; In love; In faith. In purity. God bless you all. ihe Public "Have A Look" (From Our London Correspondent) LONDON WHAT DID the public think of Britain's exclusive Fair for the trade? On Saturday they had an opportunity of seeing, for themselves, and as always, the Commonwealth Section was besieged by youn>i and old. all eager for information. It would be difficult to single out any particular stand but the greatest interest seemed to be in the West Indies, Pakistan, Hong Kong, and Nigeria. The Nigerian stand attracted attention in the first place because it is the only one which boosts a film show. The film, which depicts life in Nigeria, local customs, songs, agriculture, and so on, runs continuously. The stand itself is built in a corner, giving it a twosidcd effect, and it is both informative and. Instructive. Diagrams in brilliant colour, surrealistic wall graphs, and relief maps, show how important Nigerian products are—as dollar earners. We see what efforts have been made to stabilize prices by the setting up! of boards for cocoa, groundnuts, oil pa!m! products, and cotton; and how comparatively simple it now Is to travel long distances by air. Africans, in brilliant national dress, mostly students, are in attendance, helping tu "sell* Nigeria. i The West Indian "Sea island Cotton" stand was well patronised. I hear that in order to compete with American cotton producers, this fine Sea Island cotton is to be made in wider lengths. At the moment it is only 'M" wide, but for Eastern markets, a greatei width is wanted. Only two mills in Lancashire are engaged in making this cotton at present, but they are able to supply al that is required, by working at top pitch. Her Majesty particularly liked a silky cotton in soft grey, with a dark traced design all over it. A West Indian girl, in attendance on the stall, told me she had been asked innumerable questions about cotton by the public "Though many of them" she said ruefully, "thought Sea Island was an island in |M South Pacific! Many of the children wanted to know how cotton was processed, and wen interested in the cotton bolls and beans on the stand." The Trinidad stall has concentrated mor- i curios this year—locally made dolls. w< odwork, straw and raffia baskets. The Swedish buyers were mostly interested in the raffia and straw work; Egyptian buyers wanted the coconut oil. As for the public, "Well, most oi them were arpriied to find that there is other rum hoides Jamaican!" I was told. This year, British Guiana has a stand foi the first time. It features mainly timber— the floor and walls are examples'of the AIM woods available. "The public's interest was most Mattering' they told me,, "and Continental buyers, on< from Denmark in particular, said if it were possible to buy this wood In quantity, the\ would use nothing else for flooring." The particular woods were wallaba, a herringbone pattern and basket pattern timber; and purpleheart, which can be polished to a deep warm purple 3hade. They have received enough enquiries tc. justify them going ahead with production of greenheart. purpleheart, and mora, among other types of timber-woods that until now have been ignoryd. In general, women were interested in fruit and curios, men in rum and cigars, and children in everything. Hong Kong told me they could have used "a flying squad to keep the public from swarming all over the stall." Pakistan had dozens of enquiries for phoolkan—beautiful lengths of glowing material wovon with threads of gold, which is not foi sale, and for tiny pointed sandals, also only on show. However, trade buyers were more int. rested in their export goods, which ranged unromantically but usefully, from football;to boxing gloves. It is noticeable, on enquiring at all th. stands, that the public are displaying much greater interest in the different countries. In general, they ask intelligent questions, and appreciate intelligent answers. D V.SCOTT TODAYS SPECIALS a co. LTD. at the COLONNADE Tims Lelwia Fescues very unsanitary conditions.
