Empire Day

Message_

‘IN. AN Empire Day Message
to the Youth of the British
Empire, The Rt. Hon, th
Earl of Gowrie, President of
the Empire Day Movemen.
said:

“OUR concept of the British
Empire has greatly changev
since the celebration’ of an
annual Empire Day was iirs:
Proposed, in 1902, by the 12th
far! of Meath, our founder.

For many, too many yoars
we, at home, have tak@h tne
Colonial dependencies’ tor
granted: we knew vaguely of
their existence but ‘ew
tioubled to find cut much
about them, few even kuey,
aceurately their geographicai
position.

But, in the last two decades,
there has been a real change
of attituce—c change stimu-
lated by this recent war and
the ensuing economic crisis.
A far more in‘eliigent interest
is now taken in the Colonies;
and this was fully proved, if
proof were necessary, by the
success of the Colonial Month
(organised by the Colonial
Office during the summer of
1949) when the size of the
crowds who thronged the ex-
hibition exceeded all expecta-
tions. People now know
where these territories lie,
and how each ciffers from the

other climatically, racially,
economically. Moreover, we
are to understand

beginning

that the wellbeing of the Com-
monwealth and Empire de-
pends as much on the health
and prosperity of each as on
the co-operation of all the
partners that make up this
wonderful chain of English-
speaking peoples. Further-
more, all fully realise that
the maintenance and develop-
ment of this partnership is a
truly stabilising influence in
a sorely troubled world and
an honest attempt to lead a
ae way of life for all man-
ind.

And, as you know, various
factors have forged strong
personal links; on the one
hand, troops from Britain who
served overseas during the
war made friends, and have
thus learnt, at first hand of
life and conditions abroad; on
the other hand, soldiers,
visitors and students in in-
creasing numbers have come
from the Dominions and
\Colonies to see and learn from
the Mother Country — the
heart of this unique family of
nations.

The story of that family, of
its growth and development,
is an enthralling one; for it is
an outstanaing experiment in
harmonious living made by
peoples of many races, from
different backgrounds and in
varying stages of civilisation.

Nor have we reached the
final chapters. You, who have
your life before you, must
contribute your share of good
taste, of courage and integrity,
in writing the next phase.

It is fitting—indeed ‘it is my
privilege—to remind you all,

If It Must Come It |
Must Come Quickly

Says Gomes |;
L

‘Barbados Advocace Correspondent)
LONDON, May 23. |
“Federation of the West Indies
must come quickly, if it is to come |
at all. Delay until such time as |
the territories become self-gov
|} erning would diminish rather than
increase the chances of success.” |
These forthyight views were}
! expressed by the Hon’ble Albert |

| It was a mistake to believ+
vtherwise. If Federation did not
j}eome quickly, it was unlikely to |

Dealing with the S.C.A.C. Re- |

Mr, Gomes concluded: “As I see
it, opposition to a nominated to
Upper House is largely influenced re
by growing class conflict in the
West Indies. Our trouble is that th
we are trying to negotiate class B
struggle and national struggle at
one and the same time, forgetting
obviously, the Biblical injunction
about “A house divided against
| itself not being able to stand.”

Existing tensions in this struggle
will only be relaxed when wealth-
ier elements in West Indian com-
munities realise that they have a
duty and obligation to their com-
munities, and when local politic-
ians bring themselves to realise
that purely emotional reaction to
wealth and those who possess it
will never suffice for communities
whose first need is more, business-
men and more money for industry
and investment.”

Emigration was most desirable, he said, and

that people could be sent from here to America !

ed eventually td yield 60 more

Washington and Santiago, Chile,
came sympathy and aid for sur-
vivors of the violent quake on
Sunday which left historic build

would form standards for the

also inevitable that that revision
of salaries would be followed by

Possible To Recruit

If by chance it was possible to

make some passage provision by
law, if the whole of Dr. Hallinan’s

they would be able to do anything
except by contract, and the con-

HILDREN under four whose
parents cannot afford tele-

the Home Office refuses them
admission to films.

As so many parents now think
it wrong to issue any order to a
child which might upset it, there
will probably be special State
films for babies. There is, I see
a suggestion that no unaccom-
panied child should be allowed in
a film theatre after 8 pm. “This

Empire Day

On the 24th. of May each year the peo-
ples of the British Empire celebrate Empire
Day. The Earl of Meath, the founder of
Empire Day, declared as its object, “the
outward sign of an inner awakening of
the peoples who constitute the British
Empire to the serious duties which lie at
their door.”

It was fitting that the birthday of Queen
Victoria should have been chosen as the
day when Empire Day is celebrated. In
her long reign the Empire attaincd the
summit of its power and influence. The
British navy had no equal and scarcely a
rival.



The building of the British Empire is
remarkable for the unplanned, and in some
eases unsought, manner in which the Em-
pire has been built. Partly through colon-
isation, partly through victory in wars
with France’and Spain, and partly through
the gradual infiltration of English mer-
chants and traders, there grew up a large
mass of people of all races and rejigions
owing allegiance to the British Crown.

The first Empire came to an end with
the successful revolt of the American
colonists. The British learnt the lesson
which that taught and in succeeding gen-
erations gave the world new evideuce of
adaptability and political genius by the
enlightened policy which was adopted in
respect of Canada, South Africa, Australia
and New Zealand. In more recent years
there has been the independence of India
and Pakistan within the Empire as Re-
publican Dominions, This arrangement is
probably incomprehensible to the constitu-
tionalist, but it serves the useful purpose
of keeping together, however loosely, the
Indian peoples within a greater policy.

The Empire has stood firm and united
in the face of great dangers and has sur-
prised those who had expected that at the
first sign of adversity it would have dis-
integrated. In World Wars | and U, sons
and daughters of the Empire were to be
seen on every battlefield.

To-day the Briiish Empire faces serious
difficulties, The Empire is no longer the
first power in the world. The effects of
two. world wars has left Britain exhausted
and her economy disrupted. It is in such
circumstances that the statesmen of Empire
must seek new means and methods of
achieving stability and of continuing to
be a force in the councils of the great and
powerful.

Britain and her Empire still have much
to offer the world. Parliamentary de-
mocracy has been England’s especial con-
tribution to civilisation and this has been
adopted with some success in the countries
that comprise the Empire. The freedom
of the individual is the most treasured
right of the British peoples. In many
countries parliamentary democracy is un-
known and freedom is only an idea with
no practical significance. As long as the
Empire stands for these great ideals so
long will the Empire continue to have a
great contribution to make to world affairs.

To-day the Empire enters on a new stage
in its great history. The colonies, which
for so long have been content to be govern-
ed from England are-clamouring for a
greater say in their own affairs. The British
must adopt the same enlightened policy
now which was adopted in the case of the
great Dominions.

The Empire is a league of nations in
itself. Peace is maintained over large
areas of the world. The peoples of the
Empire must not allow temporary eco-
nomic difficulties to deflect them from the
course which world affairs require. Only
then can the Empire continue to be a
potent force in international matters.

Barbados is a loyal part of the Empire.
Disputes may arise with Britain but the
people of Barbados know that member-
ship of the Empire brings benefits which
cannot easily be replaced. Towards this
end the people of Barbados will join whole-
heartedly in the Empire Day celebrations.

THIS IS a Gulf Oil Well near a road and a park.

FACTS ABOUT GULF

THE GULF OIL CORPORA-
TION (which has recently been
granted a prospecting and conces-
sion license to drill for oil in Bar-
bados) to-day’presented its Annual
Report for the year ended Decem-
ber 31, 1949 at the Annual Meet-
ing of Stockholders held in the
Gulf Building, Pittsburgh, Penn-
sylvania.

CONSOLIDATED net income
for 1949, including $7,418,029 of
capital gain on sale of securities
was $100,877,041 or $8.89 a share
on the 11,345,250 shares out-
standing throughout the year.
This compares with $13,53 a share
in 1948 on the same number of
shares and with $10.53 a share in
1947 on 9,076,200 shares,

The Company's gross operating
income in 1949 totalled $969,502,-
000 or $99,374,000 less than in 1948.

Net income from operations in
foreign countries amounted to
$19,349,000 for the Western Hemis-
phere and $13,844,000 for the
EKastern Hemisphere.

Gulf continued in 1949 to be ore
of the ledding producers of crude
oil in» the United States and
abroad. In 1949 the Company’s
gross preduction, including roy-
alty oil, was 195,418,000 barrels.
Of this 83,829,000 barrels came
from properties in the United
States, 63,993,000 barrels from
other countries in the Western
Hemisphere (principally Vene-
zuela) and 47,596.000 barre's from
Kuwait in the Middle East.

Net production in the United
States, representing the Com-
pany’s share of crude oil from
all producing properties in which
it had an interest, was 71, 860,000
barrels, or about 17% less than
in 1948. The net production in
Venezuela was 51,924,000 barrels,
or an 8% reduction from last yeat.
This Venezuelan production is

subject to a sales contract exe-

4

cuted December 15, 1937, which
extends over the life of the
properties then held, whereby
one-half the production from
those properties is deliverable,
when produced, to the other
parties to the contract in consid-
eration for their paying one-
half of all related operating,
development and equipment costs
in addition to the initial consid-
eration paid. Gulf’s production
from Kuwait during the year was
slightly more than twice the
corresponding figure for 1948.
The increased production in
Kuwait more than offset the
decline in the United States and
Venezub!a,

The reduction in Gulf's_ crude
oil production in thé United
States was attributable primarily
to the fact that allowable pro-
duction in some of the lead-

ing oil states, particularly
Texas, was materially curtailed
} by state authorities beginning

early in 1949, when it became
apparent that production rates
reached in 1948 were excessive.
Because of th's curtailment, the
Company increased its purchases
of crude oil in the United States.

The decrease in Gulf’s produc-
tion in Venezuela was because of
a temporary sharp reduction in
world demand for heavy oil used
primarily for fuel. In Canada,
where crude oil exploration and
development are very active, the
Company realized during 1949 the
first significant return’ from its
exploratory efforts in that area
by a net production of 210,000
barrels. The increase in Kuwait
production, resulting from the
steady drilling campaign, insured
the Company’s ability to meet its
large contract requirements.

For many years Gulf has
covered a portion of its domestic





refinery requirements by the
importation of Venezuela crude
oil and in 1949 supplemented this
w.th Kuwait oil, The Company’s
imports of Kuwait crude oil into
the United States, however, repre-
sent only a small portion of its
share of production from that
country, by far the greater part
being sold under long-term con-
tracts in the Eastern Hemisphere,

Exp:oration activities in 1949
covered areas in nineteen states in
the United States and in various
other countries, including Canada,
Venezuela, Kuwait, Denmark,
Cuba, and Mozambique.

In the United States during 1949,
Gulf drilled 87 exploratory or so-
ealled “wildcat” wells, including
64 drilled in the search of new
fields and 23 in search of new pro-
ducing horizons in old fields. Of
these wells, 25 were completed as
producers of oil or gas. In addi-
tion to the wells drilled in search
of new fields or pools, a number
of outpost or extension wells were
drilled which materially extended
the limits of present tields

The Company also continued its
policy of acquiring oil and gas
rights in peosy#éctive areas, at the
end of the year approximately
10,000,000 acres of undeveloped
lands being held under lease with-
in the United States.

In foreign countries, Gulf drilled
29 exploratory wells during the
year. In Venezuela, 14 were com-
pleted as producers and 5 were
dry holes. The one test well drill-
ed in Cuba was _ unsuccessful.
Nine exploratory wells were com-
pleted in Canada, of which two
were successful, Of the two Can-
adian wells completed as produc-
ers, one resulted in an apparent
sevenmile extension of the Pincher
Creek gas field, while the other
discovered the Stettler oil field in
the Devonian reef limestone. Sev-
eral additional productive wells
have now been completed in the
latter field, which is located in
Alberta, southeast of Edmonton
and northeast of Calgary. In ad-
dition to the exploratory drilling
in Alberta, extensive geophysical
work was done in furtherance of
the Company’s active programme
in this interesting area.

To further define and develop
present producing areas in_ the
United States, the Company drill-
ed, during the year, 778 develop-
ment and outpost wells, including
part-interest operations, of which
about 90% were successful. Of
these 267 were outpost wells drill-
ed to extend the productive area
of partially developed fields, 228
being completed as producers. The
remaining 511 development wells
were drilled within the proved
area of production in partially de-
veloped fields, of which 93% were
completed as producers. Total
development and outpost wells are
about 10% above 1948. In spite
of its active drilling programme
in 1949, the Company has a large
number of proven or_vromising
locations for future drilling.

In Canaca, aevelopment drilling
was limited to the Redwater field
in Alberta Province where 32 wells
were completed in this excellent
field. Of these, one was dry and
the other 31 were successful oil
producers which had a total daily
allowable production of about
2,500 barrels at the end of the year.

In Venezuela, development drill-
ing progressed at a slightly lower
rate than in 1948 with 144 wells
drilled, of which 134, or 93%, were
producers.

In Kuwait, on the Persian Gulf,
the Company is participating in
the development of a concession
through ownership of a half-inter-
est in the Kuwait Oil Company



Limited. These holdings give
Gulf an important position in the
very extensive crude oil reserves
of the Middle East. Successful

THE FAIR IS OVER

(From our Londen Correspondent)
LONDON,

At 3.30 p.m. to-day, a workman began
hauling down the flags which havé fluttered
for a fortnight outside Earls Court, London
The British Industries Fair was closing down
until 1951. Inside, stands were being dis
mantled, decorations taken away, and an
1ir of depression was beginning to settle.

But in the Commonwealth Section, the
work of demolition had hardly begun. Late
comers were still arriving to see this par-
ticular part of the Fair, and all the stall
attendants were wandering about having a
look at the other stands.

Mr. Newton, in charge of the Trinidac
stand, told me he had not had ten minutes
to sit down in peace since the Fair began
fhe contant stream of visitors had kep
everyone on their toes: ,

“T feel that visitors were attracted to th
Trinidad stall in the first place,” he saic
‘by the magnificent display of anthurium
lilies in the front—and the curios in the
corner.”

The lack of literature was a distinct draw-
back on his stand. “Many teachers came
with children” he said, “and they asked for
literature on Sugar in particular, and cacoa
as well. They wanted to know all the use

them in detail how it was used in the pre-

ties in Kuwait during the year

indicate that previous estimates of
the magnitude of the Burgan field
have been very conservative.

Natural Gas

The Company pursued an active
| 1 and
improving the utilization and sale

programme for developing
of its natural gas production dur-
ing the year. A considerable part
of the gas produced contains cer-
tain liquid products.’ Gulf oper-
ates a number of plants to recover
the liquid (namely, natural gaso-
line, butane and propane) obtain-
able from the natural gas. During
1949 Gulf completed and put into
operation two additional plants—
one near Eunice, New Mexico, and
the other near Odessa, in West
Texas. These two plants have a
combined capacity for handling
90,000,000 cubic feet a day and,
after extracting the liquids and
satisfying the fuel requirements of
the plants, the dry gas is disposed
of under contract to a gaS pipe line
company for transmission to Cali-
fornia.

There has been u rapid expan-
sion in the use of natural gas,
largely in the mid-western and
eastern states, During 1949 sev-
eral new contracts were closed for
the sale of gas, which will mater-
ially increase the Company’s rev-
enue from that product. In a
number of cases also, existing con-
tracts were revised to provide
for improved terms of sale.

The market for natural gasol’ne

and liquefied petroleum = gases
experienced sharp readjustments
during the year, resulting froin

an excess supply accompanied by
substantia'ly lower prices.

A considerable addition to the
Company’s natural gas and con-
densate reserves resulted from
further drilling operations in the
the Province of Alberta, Canada,
especially in connection with an
important extension of the Pincher
Creek field. It now appears that
this field constitutes one of the
major gas reserves of the Com-
pany as well as of Canada. Sev-
eral groups ,are negotiating for
permission to build a gas pipe
line from Alberta to the Pacilic
Coast. When such a line is built,
it is expected that Pincher Creck
will be one of its sources of

supply.

“A Sudden Burst Of Noise”

In Canada, stibstantial new }









fashion salons of Paris may have had some-
|thing to do with it.

The way people there felt was summed

up by a West Indian who said, “It feels like
a job well done”—and as records have been
broken at this fair in the number of overseas

buyers who attended, the general feeling of

satisfaction was understandable.

Among the cheering and congratulations,
however, there was a note of criticism to be
heerd if you listened carefully.

Commodore W. J. Mills, R.N.R., who has

and at one time was in charge of a number
of Elder’s and Fyffe’s boats, was forthright.
“Many overseas buyers are annoyed” he
ssid. “One came in yesterday and wanted
100,000 gallons of citrus juice—but under an
agreement, the Ministry of Food are taking
practically all Jamaica’s output. They hold
4a monopoly. We may be able to supply this
buyer with grapefruit juice, but certainly
not with the pure citrus juice.”
The Customs restrictions, and heavy duty
on cigars and rum, are not helpful either.
Most of the West Indians were gratified at
the amoynt of interest displayed by both
public and buyers, in the colonies—but ap-
palled by the ignorance sometimes displayed.
Some typical questions asked by apparent-

Indies?” “What are those” (pointing to extra
large oranges) “Do coconuts really grow like
that?” and so on.

Among the visitors who have ealled To
see the West Indies stands lately were Mr.
Attlee, the Prime Minister; Grantley Adams
Barbados, over here with the sugat
delegation; Mr. Gordon Walker of the Com-
monwealth Relations Office; Mr. Dugdale,
Minister of State for the Colonies; and the
High Commissioners of India and Canada.

The fruit was taken, after the Fair closed
to hospitals and distributed among the
patients, and many of the African carvings
will be sold by the Crown Agents. Your
correspondent did not come away empty
honded from the displays of delectable fruit,
fabrics, carvings and curiosities. A Wes’
Indian took pity and presented me with two
packets of St. Vincent Arrowroot, so now |
can go home ‘and make biscuits.

Athletes And Mothers

TOGETHER for an hour in London recently

were two great women athletes, Fanny Blankers-
Koen, the “Flying Dutchwoman,” and Maureen
Gardner (Mrs. Dyson).
They were among 400 guests at the Savoy for
the presentation of a cup by Health Minister
Aneurin Bevan to champion cyclist Reg Harris,
voted by Sporting Record readers to be the Sports-
man of the Year. ;

Both women are mothers. Mrs, Blankers-Koen
has two children. Maureen, an 8-month-old baby.
But both are in training for their next meeting
at the European Championships at Brussels in
August. The last time they met—in the Olympics

IT CAN'T BE
ALWAYS

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR.—In a letter appearing in
this newspaper on the 18th inst,
there is a complaint that the
advertisements heard over Radio
Distribution are annoying and [
am in agreement with that
opinion.

Viewing the matter from a busi-
ness angle, radio advertising is
useful and necessary but if it
grows to the extent of annoying
subscribers and prospective sub-
scribers then it is no longer an
asset but a liability. A Broad-
casting station has certain func-
tions to perform and among them
are the providing of pleasant
entertainment and the developing
of a well informed community.

In fulfilling these obligations
the management must bear in
mind.that it is the people who
matter and if they do not satisfy
the people by supplying proper
programmes, the service should
be discontinued.

In-Barbados there js a Broad-
easting service which does not
reach overseas. It is a public

utility run by a board of direc-
tors; it must also be remembered
that it is a business worked on
the profit and loss system with
emphasis on profit, Therefore one
would expect advertising to be
done.

With the exception of the Brit-
ish Broadcasting Corporation and
possibly Radio Australia most of
the remaining stations advertise;
but advertising must be well
planned and well done. It should
not be done throughout the day’s
broadcast, it is very boring.
Many times a day on our local
service one hears a sudden burst
of noise in the form of a calypso
which is said to advertise a par-
ticular drink, but if the drink
must be judged by the advertise-
ment—please don’t—don’t drink
it. This is the most recent crea-
tion in the form of advertising.
It is a fact, “newspaper adver-
tisements don’t persecute us”.

Another very unsatisfactory
state of affairs is the standard of
Broadcasting in relation to

announcing, It leaves much to be
desired, The number of errors of
various kinds which are heard
are surprising, not to mention the
tones of the various voices; I did
not know that Ph.D meant “Doc-
tor of Physics! ! We need capable
announcers. I often wonder what
system is employed in selecting
announcers,
B. B. Cc.

God Bless

To. The Editor The Advocate

SIR,—I know that by the kind
of people you are, you will un-
derstand and believe me when I
say how sorry 1 am in leaving
this island, and how sorry I am
for not being able to see all the
people I had hoped to have seen
in the time between getting out
of hospital to the time of my de-
parture from Barbados.

The week in which I had to do
so many things was so short, try-
ing to see every interesting thing
that this small island holds and
making arrangements for my ‘de-

parture would as anyone would
agree take a considerable time,
so with this letter I would like to
express from the bottom of my
heart the gratitude and admiration
I have for you people. You have
made what would have been a
very unpleasant stay, a pleasure
by the gifts and visits.

I know I could have not got
any better treatment and mere
hospitality if I were a king, se
once again I thank you one and
all, Good luck, and God bless you.

J. NEIGHBOUR.

A Trap

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,— The great cricket tour-
nament between England and the
West Indies is on, and as we face
the fact what do we see?

Firstly, let us go back to the
opening of the tour. The first
match played against Worcester in
very cold weather resulted in a
draw. The second played against
Yorkshire resulted in a two day
win. The third played against

Surrey resulted in a draw, the
fourth played against ,Cambridge
University resulted fh a draw
the fifth is now in progress, As we
review these games one by one
coming right down to number
four, we see a record, set up
against the West Indies, we see
our bowling knocked about, and
judging the strength of our team
laying aside all excuses, we see
yet another thing; a trap—yes—a
trap. Since the beginning of the
tour, with the exception of the last

day of the scheduled match
against Yorkshire the West
Indies have got no rest. The

match against Surrey, despite the
bitter disappotntment could still
have been won, but the West
Indies had to abandon the game
one hour before its time rushing
off to catch the train which was
to take them to Cambridge Uni-
versity. ’

Let us loof at the situation from

all angles. After being robbed
of victory in their third match
and without a rest after the said
match, and without a proper rest

after their immediate journey, in

fairness’ sake, could we expect
the ‘very best of them for the
fourth mateh? The Australians|}

playing in 1948 rested one day
between every match. The New
Zealanders had their resting
periods, but there is no such
thing for the West Indies. It is
therefore plain. Knowing this
West Indies team to be the most
powerful one theygmust encoun-
ter, these Englishmen set about
the task. They knew that their
bowlers could do nothing against
the batting of the West Indies. |
They knew that their batting was
uncertain, in short they knew
what they were up against. What
must be done to prevent defeat
by all people the West Indies?
Well as I stated, they. set about
it.

Barbados’ Must ©
Have Emigration

@ From. Page 1

ment, but still tne present Gov-
ernor had made such an excellent
speech at the opening of the pre-
sent that he had to refer to it
There was one thing His Excel-
leney had igft out, however, and
that was the importance of emi-
gration.

They all knew that Barbados
was overcrowded and that their
only hope to get a decent standard
of living for the people was to
find an outlet for somie of them
to go abroad.

There was not ineluded in the
Colonial Estimates, any large
sum under the Head “Emigra-
tion,” but he personally felt and
he knew his colleagues of the
Opposition would agree with him,
that correspondence on this sub-
ject was no good whatsoever.
Contact had to be made with the
people of America and Canada
cirectly to get results, and there-
fore he felt that it would have
been wise to provide quite a
large sum in the E;timates, say
$15,000 or $20,000 for the purpose
of sending up to those places,
people who could make the
hecessary contacts.

New Post Office

Mr. Wilkinson referred to the
Measure that had been sent down
te the House of Assembly for
$20,000 for drawing up a plan for
the new Post Office. It was dis-
covered, he said, that this would
only be the first payment and that
the final payment would bring the
figure to about $30,000 in all. If
his listeners had followed the de-
bate they would see that tkpt
amount had been struck out of the
Estimates and in the opinion of
the Opposition, very rightly so.

Another very peculiar thing that
had happened was the suggestion
contained in a Message from the
Governor that as the Colonial Sec-
retary was leaving the island, and
the Assistant Colonial Secretary
also very shortly, a man should be
imported from England from the
Colonial Office to do the work here
for three or four months, That
seemed to the Opposition an insult
to the island’s public services. As
they knew, this suggestion was
turned down and the only people
who voted for it were those mem-
bers of the Executive who happen-
ed to be in the House.

Since then the Financial Secre-
tary, Mr. Petrie, had been ap-
pointed to act.as Colonial Secre-
tary and two other gentlemen had
been appointed to offices: in the
Colonial Secretary's Office. “If in
an emergency like this,” said Mr
Wilkinson, “there could not be
found a sufficiently able man lo-
cally to carry on the work of the
Colonial Secretary, we had better
been a crown colony.”

Tourist Industry

Referring to the tourist indus-
try, Mr. Wilkinson said that the
Opposition considered that this
should be encouraged as. much as
possible, even going so far as some
of the other colonies in allowing
new companies to be free from
income tax for a period of two or
three years. They were also sug-
gesting that these companies
should be allowed to import their
building material and all elaborate
fittings duty free. “You must cater
to the people from the United
States of America in the way they
are accustomed to,” said Mr. Wil-
kinson, “We are in favour of
allowing all that, because in Bar-
bados we only hfve one industry
at present of any importance, and
that as you know is the sugar in-
dustry. By all means let us en-
courage the tourist industry.”

Talking of the sugar industry
he sai fhere was a rumour about
town that none of the Opposition
was willing to go to England to
represent Barbados along with Mr.
Adams. “I want to tell you all now
that that is an absolute lie. In our
party there are five members who
are all up-to-date with all the
facts and figures on sugar; mem-
Bers who can tell youl how much
cane it would take to make a ton
of sugar, how many people are
employed in producing a ton of
cane, a ton of sugar and the like.
I make bold to say that there is

formation.
To Represent Sugar

| “In spite of all that the Govern-
ment deciced to send two mem-
bers. of their own party to England
to represent you and represent the
sugar industry of Barbados. I have
very great respect for Dr. Cum-
mins, but he cannot be expecied |!
to know as much about the pro-
| duction of sugar as the five men:-
| bers in my party to whom I have}
referred, In the interest of ihe,
| island, this is one of the occasion;
;on which party politics should
have been ignored and the two
; people best able to represent the
|industry sent to England.”

Referring to the Welfare Fund,
Mr, Wilkinson said that this money
had been subscribed mainly by
the taxpayers in England for the
benefit of the sugar workers in
the island. The fund now amount-
ed to over $800,000, and how was
it to be spent, he questioned. He
had asked a question about this in
the House the day the new Ses-
sion had begun, he said, but he
expected to get an answer just
before Christmas.

“Playing fields are necessary,
but there are not the only things
that should be provided for the
people. It is my personal view
that it is even more important to
have a roof over one’s head. What
is the good of a playing field when
one goes home to find his roof
leaking and therefore unable to
sleep in his bed. I feel the first
consideration in the disposal of
this fund should be the offering
of a gift of money to the people
to repair their houses. When this
was done tf/en playing fields could
be provided.”

Oil Bill

Mr. Wilkinson said that as they
knew, their rights and his had
been taken. away from them last
August when the Oil Bill was
passed by a slender majority. He
would now ask them what was the
result. It could only be regarded
as a hopeless mess for they were
even about to lose the little na-
tural gas they were get#ing in
town. They all hoped that oil was
in Barbados. He had heard that
it was about 10,000 feet in the
earth, but he hoped it would be
brought up. They certainly, how-
ever, did not like the method
which was adopted by the present
Government ih the dealing with
this matter.

Mr. Walcott said that the pres-
ent Government had been in
power since 1945, They had said
that they could do better than
others. His listeners” were the
judges of what they had or had
not done during their term of
office. ;



t
Election

There should have been an elec-
tion this year, he said, but the
Government had proceeded to give
themselves another year. The Op-
position regarded that as an im-
moral act; not that it was wrong
for a parliament to last three
years, but that it was wrong after
having got yourself in for two
years to give yourself another
year. That meant that the elec-
tion would not take place until
next year and they would there-
fore have to suffer and endure
for another year what they had
heard and what they would hear
later,

Whether or not they got adult
franchise, it would be a matter
for them to make up their minds
to keep in power those who now
had it, or whether they thought
a change was desirable.

Members of the delegation who
had gone to England were faced
with the problem of trying to
secure a greater quota of sugar.
He hoped their mission would be a
successful one, but as Mr. Wilkin-
son had told them, their members
on the delegation had been chosen
hadly, indeed very badly. ,

United Front

When it came to deal with for-
eign policy, or on a matter which
concerned 4 nation or an island so
much as that of sugar, a united
front should be presented. It was
therefore a great surprise when
they heard that Mr. Wilkinson at
least, was not chosen from their
Party to represent the island on
the sugar question. They had got
to remember that sugar was one
of the things out of which Mr.
Wilkinson made his living, It was
something he knew about and
would have been able to put be-
fore the Colonial Office forcibly.

It had been said in the House
of Assembly and they, his listen-
ers, had heard it time and again,
that the outlook for the colony was
very bleak if they did not get a
greater quota for their sugar pro-
duction quite apart from the ques-
tion of a greater price.

The Opposition had heard that it
was the intention of choosing one
of their party and particularly Mr.
Wilkinson, to go along with Mr.

delegation but that members of the
Adams’ Party insisted that one of
their party should be taken. They
had taken that very amiable and
likeable person Dr. Cummins. H¢
had said so because his courtesy
and demeanour in th
that of a man with whom anybody
would be proud to be associated,
but this did not speak of his ability
to handle the sugar problem.

Mr, Walcott said that a few
weeks ago after the Governor's
speech had been made, a gentle-
man of great repute and not in
politics told him that if he (Mr.
Walcott) had been on the Execu-
tive he would have said that he
had written the Governor's speech
Having heard that gentleman say
the speech was an excellent one,
he felt that that was a great com-

pliment to his party, the Electors |

Association.

Referring to this speech he said
that it was private enterprise from
the beginning, in the centre and at
the bottom and that was what his
party had advocated four years

ago.
Laughed At

Only about three weeks ago
when Mr. Mottley said on the floor
of the House that there should be
a Public Utilities Board he was
laughed at by members of the
other Party. Now the Governor
in his speech had endorsed the
policy the Electors Association had
been advocating for the past four
years for the setting up of such a
Board,

The Governor in his reference
to the Civil Service said: “I feel
that Barbados has put itself rather
in the position of a patient who
is suffering from a wasting disease
and who periodically, when he
begins to feel really ill, calls in a
specialist and seeks his advice.
After having obtained this advice,
he patient proceeds to ignore it
until he is again warned of the
seriousness of his trouble and then
he proceeds to change his special-
ist hoping that a second or even
third opinion will be less alarm-
ing.”

For this, Mr. Walcott said that
Commissioner Adams was import-
ed as one of those specialists.

When one had to deal with a
specific problem, it was only right
to get the best man for the job.
He wished them well, however,
because they might find them-

to recrait, it would be unfair to

limit the Hospital authorities to a

fixed number of charge nurses and

a fixed number of staff nurses.

He moved that the Resolution be
accepted.

Seconds Motion

Dr. Massiah seconding the mo-
tion for concurrence in the Reso-
lution said he wanted to make a
tew remarks about the Hospital in
general:

. For a long time they had known
that the public was very perturbed
about the existing arrangements
at the hospital, and he would say
that in the whole of his 35 years
intimate experience of the hospital
he had. never known ‘it to be in
such a poor condition as it was in
at present.

The position was that they had
one House Surgeon to carry on the
Workiof the-institution. » He had »
draft which would show members
how the work at the Hospijal had
been inereasing. In-patients for
the last year numbered 9,000; out-
patients for 1949-50 numbered
83,718, and both of those. figures
were Still: rising. we ‘a

Position Desperate

There was one House Surgeon
at the moment, an@ the position
was indeed desperate. It was no
new position. It was not a posi-
tion that “had come suddénly “out

ae

of the blue; it had been develop-.

ing for a couple of years now.

When he had been a member of
the staff, he had recommended
strongly that there should be a
trained Anaestheticist. At the
moment at the Hospital, it very
often happened that a surgeon
doing an operation was obliged,
for want of staff, to give the Spinal
Anaesthetic himself. If anything
happened for instance, if the blood
pressure of the patient dropped,
there was no one there to help
with it. That, in his view,’ was a
very deplorable state of affairs
indced.

He knew that the Staff Com-
mitiee had on two occasions sent a
strong recommendation to the
Governrnent, saying that it was
urgent to have an. Anaestheticist..

and perform an abdomimaloper-
ation at the same time. He was
certain that while he was on the
staff he would not have accepted.
that responsibility. It “was too
much strain. $4 ¢

He believed that they could get
a trained man at the moment if
the Government would take the
necessary action, 7

Referring to what Mr. Petrie
had said about free quarters, Dr.
Massiah said that at the moment
the Hospital could only supply
five residences for medical staff.
Under the Order there were 11
people. That meant that six of
them would have to be provided
with quarters outside.

No Residences Near

In addition, it would b& prac-
tically impossible, so far as he
knew, for them to get residences
in close proximity tothe hospital,
and that. would automatically
mean that travelling would have
to be provided for.

There was another point, said
Dr. Massiah. Up to the present,
as far as he knew, there had been
no advertisement in the Medical
Press for staff at the Barbados
General Hospital. Recruitment
was supposed to be done through
the Colonial Office.

The position was that when a
young man was graduated, he
went into the Colonial Office and
said that he wanted to join the
Colonial Service. Barbados had
no Colonial Service as such, and
a man coming down here was en-
tering a cul de sac. If after a
couple of years practice in Bar-
bados he found that he did not
want to remain, he would have
to start all over again in another
ountry. It was a waste of time.

Advertisement





The Hospital Staff should be
allowed through the Medical
Superintendent or the Director of
Medical Services to advertise in
the Medical Press. Not only in
England, but in Canada as well
they eould find young men willing
to come on contract for two or
three years and fill those posts

Dr. Massiah supported the idea
cf not allocating a special ninber
cf nurses under the Heads “Staff”
and “Charge.” Under the scheme
they planned to get 66 trained

urses. At the moment however,
‘here was not room for them
The scheme should be a long term

oe taken on, it would be

sie noped, speaking generally

hat the Government would n,

songer continue in the even teno:

of their way, but that they woula

ao something at the Hospitai for

tne good of the people of the

island. :
Supports

Dr. St. John supported the
views of Dr. Massiah, saying that
the -appointment of a Spec.alist
Anaestheticist at the. Hospital. was
an essential appointment. Dr.
Massiah had not exaggerated one
bity Dr. St. John said.

It was true that there was
cnly one House Surgeon at the
Hospital, and they of the Visit-
ing Staff had agreed to help in
the night casualty. work. They
bad done that because they felt
it was their duty, but they felt
that the! Government haa not
done all*that*could~be done to
obtain « House Surgeon.

He agreed that the Government
should: mot (rely on ‘the: Colonial
OMee,' but’ shduld ‘advertise for
thore posts in the Medical Press
inthe United: Kingdém,° Canada
and the US.A. ~

Serious Omission

Wheres®the absence of a
Specialist Anaestheticist was con-
cerned,,he considered that one of
the "most serious “omissions that
the Government could make. They
had accepted the recommendation
of Dr. Hallinan, who said that the
post might later be considered.
But there was no question.:of
“might” or “later”. It was ex-
tremely urgent. If the post was
created, the Director of Medical
Services would be able to fill .it
at short notice.

There would be only one
House Surgeon’ for the next two
months ‘at-feast.© It was true
that’ one ‘was “due to arrive ‘in
the neer future, but as soon as
he arrived the present one would
be leaving. One House Surgeon
could not be expected to give
all the anaesthetics and do all
his other work at the same
time. wo
Atarrangement had recently

beefinmade: whereby a doctor, not
comm cted «withthe hospital, was

Not Good Enough

Those conditions were not good
enough, especially when _ the
Director of Medical Services had
recently informed the Visiting
Staff tat the Attorney General
had ruled that if any doctor at the
hospital was guilty of negligence
“he and he alone is liable.” It was
easy to accuse a doctor of negli-
gence, but it was not so easy for
him. to defend himself,
“The Visiting Staff at the
Hospital is an unhappy and
angry staff’, Dr. St. John said.
“Not only because of the condi-
tions under which they work,
but because they cannot be sure
that they will not receive the
treatment that one of their
colleagues recently received
when he was accused of
negligence. '
“When'that affair was being ip-
vestigated, he gave his evidence
He was not invited to be presen‘
when evidence was being given
against him, so that he had no op-
portunity of answering. In con-
trast, it was ruled by the Director
of Medical Services in a recent
case where a ward maid was ac-
cused of inefficiency and insolence,
that the ward maid should be
present’ when) evidence was being
given against her.

Justice Denied

“That elementary principle
which we associate with British
Justice was denied to our colleague,
and to use the words of his letter
of dismissal, ‘his appointment was
terminated.” ;

“I speak with restraint when
I say that the Staff do not blame
the Head of the Administration
for the decision, which was the
result-of-an act of injustice ‘to
our former colleague, whereby
His Excellency was wrongly ed-
vised both as to the eviilencc
given against him, and the man-
ner in which. that eviderice swas
taken.” ' i
Mr. Pile said he would not go

into all the details that had been
gone into. He smiled when he
said, how strange it was to see two
doctors agreeing as the last two:
members had agreed. '
Turning to another point, Mr.
Pile said he understood that the
reason why the doctors mention-
ed in the Order, were being given
s



free quarters in addition to their
rather large inereases in salary,
was'not so much to increase their
salaries indirectly, but in order
that they ‘might be on the spot
If that was so; it was evading the
issue to give them house. allow-
anee unless they had the,luck to
yet a house close to. the hospital
Move or Rebuild

Mr. Pile then: referred io the
acheme to move the hospital or
lo rebuild it on its present site,
saying that that had been a matter
ot debate for years. ‘There must
be a great deal of matter dealing
with that in the hospitalrarchives.
There must be several points: in
those discussions which would be
useful to the Government at the
present time :

It’ was a subject in which he
was interested. Everyone who
had the welfare of the people at
heart must°be interested. There
was another important: thing —
preventive medicines» Ifyirtiey
could) by preventive medicine
save people from needing» hos-
pital treatment, they: would
save unnecessary suffering, and
cheapen im the long run the cost
of medical services, speaking gen-
erally. { ®

Excellent Speeches

Mr. Gale said that they had
heart two very excellent speeches,
one from each of the two doctors
on the Council, and it would seem
that the hospital was in a very
bad condition at present. Dr.
Massiah had pointed cut that the
number of patients was increasing
yeartyyand the Medical Staff was
keeping pace with the increase.

He hoped that the Government
would take to heart the remarks
made ‘by the two doctors, one of
whom had ‘been connected with
the hospital for many years, while
the other’ was connected with it
at present, They were competent
to criticise the administration of
the Hospital. ‘

Mr, Gale then asked the. acting
Colonial Secretary what members
of the Hospital Staff came under
the Civil~.Establishment Order.
and what members did not. Were
nurses Civil Servants? The Hos-
pital was run by the Government,
and it seemed an anomaly that
some of the staff were considered
Civil Servants and some were not
so considered, while those new
posts: came under the: Civil Estab+
lishment Order. : ; f

Who Is:In Charge?

The President asked the Act-
ing Colonial Secretary if he could
inform, him who was really in
charge of the running of the hos-
pital... Around the Council: table,
there were many, members who
had. been members of the old
Hospital Board. They had agreed.
to change it from that old Board
which was largely a_ political
one—in the hope that the Hospital
would be better run than it was
run by politicians, who he believ-
ed were sometimes more swayed
by self advertisement for their
constituents than by the benefit of
the sick.

That had been his hope, but the
old Board could never be accused
of trying to run the Hospital with
one resident surgeon. They had
managed better than that. He
wanted to ask the Acting Colonial
Secretary if the Governor-in-
Executive Cammittee listened to
the advice of the Hospital Advis-
ory Board, or if it was the Direc-
tor of Medical Services, or who.
it was that really had the say in
advising, the Governor-in-Execu-
tive Committee as to the best
course to pursue.

Did it Take Advice ? :
After’ the Governor-in+Execu-
tive Committee was advised did it
take that advice, or did it de
cide what should be done just as
a political board would have de-
cided?

The idea of providing free quar-
ters. was a rather vague. one,
when it was pointed out that it
was difficult to get suitable quar-
ters anywhere. To him there
was also some doubt as to what
sum of money the Governor-in-
Executive Committee intended to
spend on free quarters. One
member of the Staff might say
that he could get a house for $50
or $60 a month, Another might
say $120.

He did not want to be purely
critieal’, | He wanted to be con-
struétive too, the President said,
He wanted to ask the Acting Colo-
nial Secretary if the Government
had cOnsidered using the derelict
premises which they had owned
tor so leng at Stockton just across
fram the~hospital, and whether a
series of bungalows could not he
erected on those premises for the
use of the statf, That was prose
vided. it was intended that th»
hospital; should remain on its
present site i

Reconsider

He hoped'that the Government
would reconsider their decision
that the creation of the new posts
should he compensated for by the
abolition. of: one: House Surgeon
anc \Anaestheticist. i

Mr, Pile said he could not allow
to Pass; unchallenged the imputa-
tions that the ald Hospital Board

not say that a member might ndt
be swayed sometimes by political
considerations, but he did mat

Mr. Petrie replying, said there
were, some points. om which he
would have difficulty in replying.
He would. do his. best, syhowever .
He said the Order was the -first
instalment of Government's action
to clear-up the present ‘unfortun-
ate position at the Hospita}. - -

It was true that the Government had
accepted the suggestion taat the Pasts a)
House Surgeon Anaestheticist shoul:

Medical Officers But the Government
had every intention of considering Dr
Hallinan'’s recommendation that the fill.

Imperative
It was imperative that quarters

be provided so that the doctors i
be on the premises. But if they ie
not be got near the hospital, it could not
be expected that the doctor should pay
for them himself because_ihey were not
near the hospital. As soon as plans were
made fox the building or rebuilding of
the hospital, provision would have to be
at for accommodation of the medical
sta

Who Advises ?

Mr. Petrie further said that the Hos-

Trygve Lie Has

SAYS INDIAN EDITOR

PARIS, May 23.
Mr. Rusky Karanjia, editor of
two Indian newspapers, said to-
day he —s that Mr. Trygve
Lie, Unt Nations Secretary:
General, had brought back fromm
Russia a total peace plan, involv-
ing everything from the atom and
hydrogen bombs to admission of
the New China to the United Na-
tions, and probably a Big Four

meeting.
After a
with Mr. Trygve:Lie shortly be-
fore he left for London for talles
with British leadets, Mr, Karanjia

said: “I had every reason 'te:¢on~ |
clude from my-interview ‘that Mr-|

Lie had something concrete in his
pocket, details of which he was
not willing to reveal at this stage.

“Mr. Bie was very happy about
his Moscow trip and laughed off
the idea of war, and pooh-poohed
all talk of it.

“I got the impression that he

was optimistic and happy that the |

big hurdle had been crossed
through his visit to Moscow.”

Mr. Karanjia said Mr. Lie was
also pleased with talks he had
with the French Premier, Georges
Bidault, and the Foreign Minister,
Robert Schuman, after the Mos-
cow meetings.

the town during the day. Now,
almost all summer dresses are
made in this way, with nee

boleros to “cover up.”

Illustrated is a two-piece in
cotton, printed with extra large
white spots. The bra is particu-
larly well fitting, with three but-
tons down the front, and the brief
pants are neat Over it can be
worn a matching hip-length
berch coat,

These outfits are seldom worn
for swimming. They are far more
suitable — and comfortable — for
lazing in the sun. And to carry
with you on your excursions to
the seaside are straw accessories
of every kind. Apart from the
attractive straw necklaces and
and earrings, which Paris has
acclaimed as the latest thing in.
fashion jewellery, there are hand-
made raffia sandals, big straw
hats tied on with a bandana hand-
kerchief, straw hold-alls, minute
baskets with gathered fabric tops
—but not, as yet, straw skirts.

But if it’s opulence you are
seeking, perhaps the most valu-
able bathing costume in Britain
would appeal to you. It glitters—
and it is GOLD—24-carat gold, in
fact, worth £75. It was model-
led this week for British Indus-
tries Fair buyers at a West-End
night club.



Strikers Resume
Work In St. Kitts

ST. KITTS, May 23,





The Labour nion called a
24-hour token strike at 1 p.m.,
yesterday. While loading a_ ship
with sugar for Canuda, lighter
with sugar remained laden until
work was resumed at 1 p.m,
today

upping merchants were in
formed that the Union reserved
the right to call a similar strike
at any time on any ship in con-
sequence of the shippers’ refusal
to pay by Day instead of by ton

for handling cargo

The strike has not, otherwise
affected the sugar industry. Work
is proceeding normally.

Cariton defended the north goal
in the first half. Shortly after

ldy began Lueas took a shot at
ihe Rovers goal but the ball went
high over the cross bar,

A few minutes later Kennedy,
the Carlton left winger, ran down
the wing and centred, but the
ball struck the left upright and
went out of play

Golden Opporiunity

Rovers missed a gulden oppor-
tunity to open their account when
Wells ran down the right wing
and centred. Taylor received the
ball but keeked it outside.

Carlton narrowly missed their
first goal a few minutes before
half time when Hill, the Rovers
custodian, was out of the goal.
Kennedy took a one time shot but
the ball struck the cross bar and
rebounded,

In the second half Carlton again
went into the attack. Lucas took a
hard low shot and Hill stopped the
ball but failed to gather it. Mar-
shall, Who was boring through,
caught the ball on the rebound
with a hard one time shot but just
missed the right upright by a few

Hundreds of square miles of muddv wider ajn funnelled between them to Lake Winnipeg. With the river in strong check, the public and official at tention is centred on two problems: (1) What to do with 8.000 persons whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by the worst flood since 1SSV>. and in Creator Winnipeg since 1826 In the Red River Valley farther south. (2) What preventive measures to take so there can be no recurrence. About 100.000 persons have left the flood zone at the urging of Brigadier Morion who wanted to reduce the risk of life if general evacuation became necessary. They are scattered among friendly homes from here to both coasts. —Can. Preas. Lie WU1 Talk With Attlee LONDON, May 23.

PACE roiR BARBADOS \DVOC\TE WEDXIMiU. 1930 B^MDOSi&AlMMrE r 1 f i Wednesday. Mn> 21. IM| I iiH.ii || a > On the 24th. nf M., pies of Ihe Hi .* Day. Tin K u i i I atdm ot Empin I r i as its serious duties which lit at their door." h was fitting ihnt the birthday -1 Qmm Victoria should haw been chosen as the day when Empire Day Is celebrated. In her long reign the Empire attained the summit of its power and influence. Tin British navy had no equal and scarcely a rival Tlie buildine, ofl the British Empire is remarkable for th "I, and in some cases unsought, manner In which tha Kmpire has been built. Partly Ummgh colon* lsalion, partly through victory in wars with France and Spain, and parti' | the gradual infilti.ition of English merchant.* a/id tradeis. there grew up i largo mass of people of all races and ri^iemns owing allegiance to the British Crown The first Empire came to an end with the successful revolt of (he American colonists. The British learnt thi which that taught and in succeed!! erations gave the world new evidence <>f adaptability and political genius by U enlightened policy which was adoptad respect of Canada, South Alnca. All and New Zealand. In moiv ntcenl y-n:. there has been the Usdepandasce ol India and Pakistan within the Empire as Republican Dominions. This arraiigemrn* hi probably incomprehensible to the cons'.iiutionalist. but it serves the useful purpose of keeping together, however loosely, the Indian peoples within a greater policy. The Empire has stood firm and united in the face of KPMl dangers and has surprised those who had expected that ot the first sign of adversity It would have dis integrated. In World Wars I and II, sons and daughters of the Empire were to be seen on every battlefield To-Oay the Brlliah Empire faces serious difficulties. The Empire is no longer the first power in the world. The effects of two world wars has left Britain exhausted and her economy disrupted. It is in such circumstances that the statesmen of Empire must seek new means and methods of achieving stability and of continuing to be a force in the councils of the great and powerful. Britain and her Empire still have much to offer the world. Parliamentary democracy has been England's especial contribution to civilisation and this has been adopted with some success in the countries that comprise the Empire. The freedom of the individual is the most treasured right of the British peoples. In many countries parliamentary democracy is unknown and freedom is only an idea with no practical significance. As long as the Empire stands for these great ideals so long will the Empire continue to have a great contribution to make to world affairs. To-day the Empire enters on a new stage in its great history. The colonies, which for so long have been content to be governed from England are clamouring for a greater say in their own affairs. The British must adopt the same enlightened policy now which was adopted in the case of the great Dominions. The Empire is a league of nations in itself. Peace is maintained over huge areas of the world. The peoples of the Empire must not allow temporary economic difficulties to deflect them from the course which world affairs require. Only then can the Empire continue to be a potent force in international matters. Barbados is a loyal part of the Empire. Disputes may arise with Britain but the people of Barbados know that membership of the Empire brings benefits which cannot easily he replaced. Towards this end the people of Barbados will join wholeheartedly in the Empire Day celebrations. Jm—k.

The Advocate SIR—In a letter appearing la this newspaper on the 18th insl, there is a complaint that the advertisements heard over Radio Distribution are annoying and I am In agreement with that opinion. Viewing the matter from a business angle, radio advertising is useful and necessary but If it grows to the extent of annoying subscribers and DttMpoctWa MI!Iscrlbers then it Is no lonajar un asset but a liability. A Broodcastlng station has certain functions to perform and among them are the providing of pleasant entertainment and the developing nf .1 well informed community. In fulfilling these obligations the management mast beer la mind that it Is the people who matter and if they rly not satisfy the people by supplying propr-r programmes, the service should be discontinued. In Barbados there Is a BroadeSStfeDf service which does not reach overseas. It U .1 pubttc utility run by a board of directors; It must also be remembered that It Is a business worked on the prollt and loss system with emphasis on prollt. Theref..:.' one would expect advertising to be With the exception of Ihs Bril isli Broadcasting Corporation and Radio Au-1r.ili:i inost <•' the remaining stations edvsrUBe; hut advertising must be well planned and well done. It ulioulit not IKdone throughout the. day's broadcast, It Is very boring Many Umee a day on our local DBS hears a sudden burst of noise In the form of a calypso which Is said to advertise a particular drink, but If the drink nidged by the advertisement—please don't—don't drink It. This is the most recent creation in the form of advertising. It la a fart, "newspaper advertlsements don't persecute us". Another very unsatisfactory state of affairs Is the standard of Ring in relation to announcing It leaves much to be desired. The number of errors of various kinds which are beard are surprising, not to mention the tones of the various voices; I did not know that Ph.I) meant "Doctor of Physics! We need capable announcers.

Empire Day

Message_

‘IN. AN Empire Day Message
to the Youth of the British
Empire, The Rt. Hon, th
Earl of Gowrie, President of
the Empire Day Movemen.
said:

“OUR concept of the British
Empire has greatly changev
since the celebration’ of an
annual Empire Day was iirs:
Proposed, in 1902, by the 12th
far! of Meath, our founder.

For many, too many yoars
we, at home, have tak@h tne
Colonial dependencies’ tor
granted: we knew vaguely of
their existence but ‘ew
tioubled to find cut much
about them, few even kuey,
aceurately their geographicai
position.

But, in the last two decades,
there has been a real change
of attituce—c change stimu-
lated by this recent war and
the ensuing economic crisis.
A far more in‘eliigent interest
is now taken in the Colonies;
and this was fully proved, if
proof were necessary, by the
success of the Colonial Month
(organised by the Colonial
Office during the summer of
1949) when the size of the
crowds who thronged the ex-
hibition exceeded all expecta-
tions. People now know
where these territories lie,
and how each ciffers from the

other climatically, racially,
economically. Moreover, we
are to understand

beginning

that the wellbeing of the Com-
monwealth and Empire de-
pends as much on the health
and prosperity of each as on
the co-operation of all the
partners that make up this
wonderful chain of English-
speaking peoples. Further-
more, all fully realise that
the maintenance and develop-
ment of this partnership is a
truly stabilising influence in
a sorely troubled world and
an honest attempt to lead a
ae way of life for all man-
ind.

And, as you know, various
factors have forged strong
personal links; on the one
hand, troops from Britain who
served overseas during the
war made friends, and have
thus learnt, at first hand of
life and conditions abroad; on
the other hand, soldiers,
visitors and students in in-
creasing numbers have come
from the Dominions and
\Colonies to see and learn from
the Mother Country — the
heart of this unique family of
nations.

The story of that family, of
its growth and development,
is an enthralling one; for it is
an outstanaing experiment in
harmonious living made by
peoples of many races, from
different backgrounds and in
varying stages of civilisation.

Nor have we reached the
final chapters. You, who have
your life before you, must
contribute your share of good
taste, of courage and integrity,
in writing the next phase.

It is fitting—indeed ‘it is my
privilege—to remind you all,

If It Must Come It |
Must Come Quickly

Says Gomes |;
L

‘Barbados Advocace Correspondent)
LONDON, May 23. |
“Federation of the West Indies
must come quickly, if it is to come |
at all. Delay until such time as |
the territories become self-gov
|} erning would diminish rather than
increase the chances of success.” |
These forthyight views were}
! expressed by the Hon’ble Albert |
|Gomes of Trinidad, addressing |
| the Commonwealth Parliamentary

| It was a mistake to believ+
vtherwise. If Federation did not
j}eome quickly, it was unlikely to |
}come tor a long time |

Dealing with the S.C.A.C. Re- |

Mr, Gomes concluded: “As I see
it, opposition to a nominated to
Upper House is largely influenced re
by growing class conflict in the
West Indies. Our trouble is that th
we are trying to negotiate class B
struggle and national struggle at
one and the same time, forgetting
obviously, the Biblical injunction
about “A house divided against
| itself not being able to stand.”

Existing tensions in this struggle
will only be relaxed when wealth-
ier elements in West Indian com-
munities realise that they have a
duty and obligation to their com-
munities, and when local politic-
ians bring themselves to realise
that purely emotional reaction to
wealth and those who possess it
will never suffice for communities
whose first need is more, business-
men and more money for industry
and investment.”

strewn rubble which was expect-
ed eventually td yield 60 more
bodies. From as far away as
Washington and Santiago, Chile,
came sympathy and aid for sur-
vivors of the violent quake on
Sunday which left historic build
ings, centuries old, in ruins.

standards contained in the Order
would form standards for the
emoluments of members of the

the Government Service, It was
also inevitable that that revision
of salaries would be followed by

ment Medical institutions.

by Dr, Hallinan were more than

they included salaries, housing and |

Possible To Recruit

If by chance it was possible to
recruit an officer other than by
contract, it would be necessary to
make some passage provision by
law, if the whole of Dr. Hallinan’s
recommendations was to

they would be able to do anything
except by contract, and the con-
tracts, as he had said, would nor-

It might also be necessary to
seek the authority of the Legisla-

instead of providing free quarters. |

As so many parents now think
it wrong to issue any order to a

will probably be special State

a suggestion that no unaccom-

a film theatre after 8 pm. “This

Empire Day

On the 24th. of May each year the peo-
ples of the British Empire celebrate Empire
Day. The Earl of Meath, the founder of
Empire Day, declared as its object, “the
outward sign of an inner awakening of
the peoples who constitute the British
Empire to the serious duties which lie at
their door.”

It was fitting that the birthday of Queen
Victoria should have been chosen as the
day when Empire Day is celebrated. In
her long reign the Empire attaincd the
summit of its power and influence. The
British navy had no equal and scarcely a
rival.



The building of the British Empire is
remarkable for the unplanned, and in some
eases unsought, manner in which the Em-
pire has been built. Partly through colon-
isation, partly through victory in wars
with France’and Spain, and partly through
the gradual infiltration of English mer-
chants and traders, there grew up a large
mass of people of all races and rejigions
owing allegiance to the British Crown.

The first Empire came to an end with
the successful revolt of the American
colonists. The British learnt the lesson
which that taught and in succeeding gen-
erations gave the world new evideuce of
adaptability and political genius by the
enlightened policy which was adopted in
respect of Canada, South Africa, Australia
and New Zealand. In more recent years
there has been the independence of India
and Pakistan within the Empire as Re-
publican Dominions, This arrangement is
probably incomprehensible to the constitu-
tionalist, but it serves the useful purpose
of keeping together, however loosely, the
Indian peoples within a greater policy.

The Empire has stood firm and united
in the face of great dangers and has sur-
prised those who had expected that at the
first sign of adversity it would have dis-
integrated. In World Wars | and U, sons
and daughters of the Empire were to be
seen on every battlefield.

To-day the Briiish Empire faces serious
difficulties, The Empire is no longer the
first power in the world. The effects of
two. world wars has left Britain exhausted
and her economy disrupted. It is in such
circumstances that the statesmen of Empire
must seek new means and methods of
achieving stability and of continuing to
be a force in the councils of the great and
powerful.

Britain and her Empire still have much
to offer the world. Parliamentary de-
mocracy has been England’s especial con-
tribution to civilisation and this has been
adopted with some success in the countries
that comprise the Empire. The freedom
of the individual is the most treasured
right of the British peoples. In many
countries parliamentary democracy is un-
known and freedom is only an idea with
no practical significance. As long as the
Empire stands for these great ideals so
long will the Empire continue to have a
great contribution to make to world affairs.

To-day the Empire enters on a new stage
in its great history. The colonies, which
for so long have been content to be govern-
ed from England are-clamouring for a
greater say in their own affairs. The British
must adopt the same enlightened policy
now which was adopted in the case of the
great Dominions.

The Empire is a league of nations in
itself. Peace is maintained over large
areas of the world. The peoples of the
Empire must not allow temporary eco-
nomic difficulties to deflect them from the
course which world affairs require. Only
then can the Empire continue to be a
potent force in international matters.

Barbados is a loyal part of the Empire.
Disputes may arise with Britain but the
people of Barbados know that member-
ship of the Empire brings benefits which
cannot easily be replaced. Towards this
end the people of Barbados will join whole-
heartedly in the Empire Day celebrations.

THIS IS a Gulf Oil Well near a road and a park.

FACTS ABOUT GULF

THE GULF OIL CORPORA-
TION (which has recently been
granted a prospecting and conces-
sion license to drill for oil in Bar-
bados) to-day’presented its Annual
Report for the year ended Decem-
ber 31, 1949 at the Annual Meet-
ing of Stockholders held in the
Gulf Building, Pittsburgh, Penn-
sylvania.

CONSOLIDATED net income
for 1949, including $7,418,029 of
capital gain on sale of securities
was $100,877,041 or $8.89 a share
on the 11,345,250 shares out-
standing throughout the year.
This compares with $13,53 a share
in 1948 on the same number of
shares and with $10.53 a share in
1947 on 9,076,200 shares,

The Company's gross operating
income in 1949 totalled $969,502,-
000 or $99,374,000 less than in 1948.

Net income from operations in
foreign countries amounted to
$19,349,000 for the Western Hemis-
phere and $13,844,000 for the
EKastern Hemisphere.

Gulf continued in 1949 to be ore
of the ledding producers of crude
oil in» the United States and
abroad. In 1949 the Company’s
gross preduction, including roy-
alty oil, was 195,418,000 barrels.
Of this 83,829,000 barrels came
from properties in the United
States, 63,993,000 barrels from
other countries in the Western
Hemisphere (principally Vene-
zuela) and 47,596.000 barre's from
Kuwait in the Middle East.

Net production in the United
States, representing the Com-
pany’s share of crude oil from
all producing properties in which
it had an interest, was 71, 860,000
barrels, or about 17% less than
in 1948. The net production in
Venezuela was 51,924,000 barrels,
or an 8% reduction from last yeat.
This Venezuelan production is

subject to a sales contract exe-

4

cuted December 15, 1937, which
extends over the life of the
properties then held, whereby
one-half the production from
those properties is deliverable,
when produced, to the other
parties to the contract in consid-
eration for their paying one-
half of all related operating,
development and equipment costs
in addition to the initial consid-
eration paid. Gulf’s production
from Kuwait during the year was
slightly more than twice the
corresponding figure for 1948.
The increased production in
Kuwait more than offset the
decline in the United States and
Venezub!a,

The reduction in Gulf's_ crude
oil production in thé United
States was attributable primarily
to the fact that allowable pro-
duction in some of the lead-

ing oil states, particularly
Texas, was materially curtailed
} by state authorities beginning

early in 1949, when it became
apparent that production rates
reached in 1948 were excessive.
Because of th's curtailment, the
Company increased its purchases
of crude oil in the United States.

The decrease in Gulf’s produc-
tion in Venezuela was because of
a temporary sharp reduction in
world demand for heavy oil used
primarily for fuel. In Canada,
where crude oil exploration and
development are very active, the
Company realized during 1949 the
first significant return’ from its
exploratory efforts in that area
by a net production of 210,000
barrels. The increase in Kuwait
production, resulting from the
steady drilling campaign, insured
the Company’s ability to meet its
large contract requirements.

For many years Gulf has
covered a portion of its domestic





refinery requirements by the
importation of Venezuela crude
oil and in 1949 supplemented this
w.th Kuwait oil, The Company’s
imports of Kuwait crude oil into
the United States, however, repre-
sent only a small portion of its
share of production from that
country, by far the greater part
being sold under long-term con-
tracts in the Eastern Hemisphere,

Exp:oration activities in 1949
covered areas in nineteen states in
the United States and in various
other countries, including Canada,
Venezuela, Kuwait, Denmark,
Cuba, and Mozambique.

In the United States during 1949,
Gulf drilled 87 exploratory or so-
ealled “wildcat” wells, including
64 drilled in the search of new
fields and 23 in search of new pro-
ducing horizons in old fields. Of
these wells, 25 were completed as
producers of oil or gas. In addi-
tion to the wells drilled in search
of new fields or pools, a number
of outpost or extension wells were
drilled which materially extended
the limits of present tields

The Company also continued its
policy of acquiring oil and gas
rights in peosy#éctive areas, at the
end of the year approximately
10,000,000 acres of undeveloped
lands being held under lease with-
in the United States.

In foreign countries, Gulf drilled
29 exploratory wells during the
year. In Venezuela, 14 were com-
pleted as producers and 5 were
dry holes. The one test well drill-
ed in Cuba was _ unsuccessful.
Nine exploratory wells were com-
pleted in Canada, of which two
were successful, Of the two Can-
adian wells completed as produc-
ers, one resulted in an apparent
sevenmile extension of the Pincher
Creek gas field, while the other
discovered the Stettler oil field in
the Devonian reef limestone. Sev-
eral additional productive wells
have now been completed in the
latter field, which is located in
Alberta, southeast of Edmonton
and northeast of Calgary. In ad-
dition to the exploratory drilling
in Alberta, extensive geophysical
work was done in furtherance of
the Company’s active programme
in this interesting area.

To further define and develop
present producing areas in_ the
United States, the Company drill-
ed, during the year, 778 develop-
ment and outpost wells, including
part-interest operations, of which
about 90% were successful. Of
these 267 were outpost wells drill-
ed to extend the productive area
of partially developed fields, 228
being completed as producers. The
remaining 511 development wells
were drilled within the proved
area of production in partially de-
veloped fields, of which 93% were
completed as producers. Total
development and outpost wells are
about 10% above 1948. In spite
of its active drilling programme
in 1949, the Company has a large
number of proven or_vromising
locations for future drilling.

In Canaca, aevelopment drilling
was limited to the Redwater field
in Alberta Province where 32 wells
were completed in this excellent
field. Of these, one was dry and
the other 31 were successful oil
producers which had a total daily
allowable production of about
2,500 barrels at the end of the year.

In Venezuela, development drill-
ing progressed at a slightly lower
rate than in 1948 with 144 wells
drilled, of which 134, or 93%, were
producers.

In Kuwait, on the Persian Gulf,
the Company is participating in
the development of a concession
through ownership of a half-inter-
est in the Kuwait Oil Company



Limited. These holdings give
Gulf an important position in the
very extensive crude oil reserves
of the Middle East. Successful

THE FAIR IS OVER

(From our Londen Correspondent)
LONDON,

At 3.30 p.m. to-day, a workman began
hauling down the flags which havé fluttered
for a fortnight outside Earls Court, London
The British Industries Fair was closing down
until 1951. Inside, stands were being dis
mantled, decorations taken away, and an
1ir of depression was beginning to settle.

But in the Commonwealth Section, the
work of demolition had hardly begun. Late
comers were still arriving to see this par-
ticular part of the Fair, and all the stall
attendants were wandering about having a
look at the other stands.

Mr. Newton, in charge of the Trinidac
stand, told me he had not had ten minutes
to sit down in peace since the Fair began
fhe contant stream of visitors had kep
everyone on their toes: ,

“T feel that visitors were attracted to th
Trinidad stall in the first place,” he saic
‘by the magnificent display of anthurium
lilies in the front—and the curios in the
corner.”

The lack of literature was a distinct draw-
back on his stand. “Many teachers came
with children” he said, “and they asked for
literature on Sugar in particular, and cacoa
as well. They wanted to know all the use

them in detail how it was used in the pre-

ties in Kuwait during the year

indicate that previous estimates of
the magnitude of the Burgan field
have been very conservative.

Natural Gas

The Company pursued an active
| 1 and
improving the utilization and sale

programme for developing
of its natural gas production dur-
ing the year. A considerable part
of the gas produced contains cer-
tain liquid products.’ Gulf oper-
ates a number of plants to recover
the liquid (namely, natural gaso-
line, butane and propane) obtain-
able from the natural gas. During
1949 Gulf completed and put into
operation two additional plants—
one near Eunice, New Mexico, and
the other near Odessa, in West
Texas. These two plants have a
combined capacity for handling
90,000,000 cubic feet a day and,
after extracting the liquids and
satisfying the fuel requirements of
the plants, the dry gas is disposed
of under contract to a gaS pipe line
company for transmission to Cali-
fornia.

There has been u rapid expan-
sion in the use of natural gas,
largely in the mid-western and
eastern states, During 1949 sev-
eral new contracts were closed for
the sale of gas, which will mater-
ially increase the Company’s rev-
enue from that product. In a
number of cases also, existing con-
tracts were revised to provide
for improved terms of sale.

The market for natural gasol’ne

and liquefied petroleum = gases
experienced sharp readjustments
during the year, resulting froin

an excess supply accompanied by
substantia'ly lower prices.

A considerable addition to the
Company’s natural gas and con-
densate reserves resulted from
further drilling operations in the
the Province of Alberta, Canada,
especially in connection with an
important extension of the Pincher
Creek field. It now appears that
this field constitutes one of the
major gas reserves of the Com-
pany as well as of Canada. Sev-
eral groups ,are negotiating for
permission to build a gas pipe
line from Alberta to the Pacilic
Coast. When such a line is built,
it is expected that Pincher Creck
will be one of its sources of

supply.

“A Sudden Burst Of Noise”

In Canada, stibstantial new }









fashion salons of Paris may have had some-
|thing to do with it.

The way people there felt was summed

up by a West Indian who said, “It feels like
a job well done”—and as records have been
broken at this fair in the number of overseas

buyers who attended, the general feeling of

satisfaction was understandable.

Among the cheering and congratulations,
however, there was a note of criticism to be
heerd if you listened carefully.

Commodore W. J. Mills, R.N.R., who has

and at one time was in charge of a number
of Elder’s and Fyffe’s boats, was forthright.
“Many overseas buyers are annoyed” he
ssid. “One came in yesterday and wanted
100,000 gallons of citrus juice—but under an
agreement, the Ministry of Food are taking
practically all Jamaica’s output. They hold
4a monopoly. We may be able to supply this
buyer with grapefruit juice, but certainly
not with the pure citrus juice.”
The Customs restrictions, and heavy duty
on cigars and rum, are not helpful either.
Most of the West Indians were gratified at
the amoynt of interest displayed by both
public and buyers, in the colonies—but ap-
palled by the ignorance sometimes displayed.
Some typical questions asked by apparent-

Indies?” “What are those” (pointing to extra
large oranges) “Do coconuts really grow like
that?” and so on.

Among the visitors who have ealled To
see the West Indies stands lately were Mr.
Attlee, the Prime Minister; Grantley Adams
Barbados, over here with the sugat
delegation; Mr. Gordon Walker of the Com-
monwealth Relations Office; Mr. Dugdale,
Minister of State for the Colonies; and the
High Commissioners of India and Canada.

The fruit was taken, after the Fair closed
to hospitals and distributed among the
patients, and many of the African carvings
will be sold by the Crown Agents. Your
correspondent did not come away empty
honded from the displays of delectable fruit,
fabrics, carvings and curiosities. A Wes’
Indian took pity and presented me with two
packets of St. Vincent Arrowroot, so now |
can go home ‘and make biscuits.

Athletes And Mothers

TOGETHER for an hour in London recently

were two great women athletes, Fanny Blankers-
Koen, the “Flying Dutchwoman,” and Maureen
Gardner (Mrs. Dyson).
They were among 400 guests at the Savoy for
the presentation of a cup by Health Minister
Aneurin Bevan to champion cyclist Reg Harris,
voted by Sporting Record readers to be the Sports-
man of the Year. ;

Both women are mothers. Mrs, Blankers-Koen
has two children. Maureen, an 8-month-old baby.
But both are in training for their next meeting
at the European Championships at Brussels in
August. The last time they met—in the Olympics

IT CAN'T BE
ALWAYS

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR.—In a letter appearing in
this newspaper on the 18th inst,
there is a complaint that the
advertisements heard over Radio
Distribution are annoying and [
am in agreement with that
opinion.

Viewing the matter from a busi-
ness angle, radio advertising is
useful and necessary but if it
grows to the extent of annoying
subscribers and prospective sub-
scribers then it is no longer an
asset but a liability. A Broad-
casting station has certain func-
tions to perform and among them
are the providing of pleasant
entertainment and the developing
of a well informed community.

In fulfilling these obligations
the management must bear in
mind.that it is the people who
matter and if they do not satisfy
the people by supplying proper
programmes, the service should
be discontinued.

In-Barbados there js a Broad-
easting service which does not
reach overseas. It is a public

utility run by a board of direc-
tors; it must also be remembered
that it is a business worked on
the profit and loss system with
emphasis on profit, Therefore one
would expect advertising to be
done.

With the exception of the Brit-
ish Broadcasting Corporation and
possibly Radio Australia most of
the remaining stations advertise;
but advertising must be well
planned and well done. It should
not be done throughout the day’s
broadcast, it is very boring.
Many times a day on our local
service one hears a sudden burst
of noise in the form of a calypso
which is said to advertise a par-
ticular drink, but if the drink
must be judged by the advertise-
ment—please don’t—don’t drink
it. This is the most recent crea-
tion in the form of advertising.
It is a fact, “newspaper adver-
tisements don’t persecute us”.

Another very unsatisfactory
state of affairs is the standard of
Broadcasting in relation to

announcing, It leaves much to be
desired, The number of errors of
various kinds which are heard
are surprising, not to mention the
tones of the various voices; I did
not know that Ph.D meant “Doc-
tor of Physics! ! We need capable
announcers. I often wonder what
system is employed in selecting
announcers,
B. B. Cc.

God Bless

To. The Editor The Advocate

SIR,—I know that by the kind
of people you are, you will un-
derstand and believe me when I
say how sorry 1 am in leaving
this island, and how sorry I am
for not being able to see all the
people I had hoped to have seen
in the time between getting out
of hospital to the time of my de-
parture from Barbados.

The week in which I had to do
so many things was so short, try-
ing to see every interesting thing
that this small island holds and
making arrangements for my ‘de-

parture would as anyone would
agree take a considerable time,
so with this letter I would like to
express from the bottom of my
heart the gratitude and admiration
I have for you people. You have
made what would have been a
very unpleasant stay, a pleasure
by the gifts and visits.

I know I could have not got
any better treatment and mere
hospitality if I were a king, se
once again I thank you one and
all, Good luck, and God bless you.

A Trap

To the Editor, The Advocate

SIR,— The great cricket tour-
nament between England and the
West Indies is on, and as we face
the fact what do we see?

Firstly, let us go back to the
opening of the tour. The first
match played against Worcester in
very cold weather resulted in a
draw. The second played against
Yorkshire resulted in a two day
win. The third played against

Surrey resulted in a draw, the
fourth played against ,Cambridge
University resulted fh a draw
the fifth is now in progress, As we
review these games one by one
coming right down to number
four, we see a record, set up
against the West Indies, we see
our bowling knocked about, and
judging the strength of our team
laying aside all excuses, we see
yet another thing; a trap—yes—a
trap. Since the beginning of the
tour, with the exception of the last

day of the scheduled match
against Yorkshire the West
Indies have got no rest. The

match against Surrey, despite the
bitter disappotntment could still
have been won, but the West
Indies had to abandon the game
one hour before its time rushing
off to catch the train which was
to take them to Cambridge Uni-
versity. ’

Let us loof at the situation from

all angles. After being robbed
of victory in their third match
and without a rest after the said
match, and without a proper rest

after their immediate journey, in

fairness’ sake, could we expect
the ‘very best of them for the
fourth mateh? The Australians|}

playing in 1948 rested one day
between every match. The New
Zealanders had their resting
periods, but there is no such
thing for the West Indies. It is
therefore plain. Knowing this
West Indies team to be the most
powerful one theygmust encoun-
ter, these Englishmen set about
the task. They knew that their
bowlers could do nothing against
the batting of the West Indies. |
They knew that their batting was
uncertain, in short they knew
what they were up against. What
must be done to prevent defeat
by all people the West Indies?
Well as I stated, they. set about
it.

Barbados’ Must ©
Have Emigration

@ From. Page 1

ment, but still tne present Gov-
ernor had made such an excellent
speech at the opening of the pre-
sent that he had to refer to it
There was one thing His Excel-
leney had igft out, however, and
that was the importance of emi-
gration.

They all knew that Barbados
was overcrowded and that their
only hope to get a decent standard
of living for the people was to
find an outlet for somie of them
to go abroad.

There was not ineluded in the
Colonial Estimates, any large
sum under the Head “Emigra-
tion,” but he personally felt and
he knew his colleagues of the
Opposition would agree with him,
that correspondence on this sub-
ject was no good whatsoever.
Contact had to be made with the
people of America and Canada
cirectly to get results, and there-
fore he felt that it would have
been wise to provide quite a
large sum in the E;timates, say
$15,000 or $20,000 for the purpose
of sending up to those places,
people who could make the
hecessary contacts.

New Post Office

Mr. Wilkinson referred to the
Measure that had been sent down
te the House of Assembly for
$20,000 for drawing up a plan for
the new Post Office. It was dis-
covered, he said, that this would
only be the first payment and that
the final payment would bring the
figure to about $30,000 in all. If
his listeners had followed the de-
bate they would see that tkpt
amount had been struck out of the
Estimates and in the opinion of
the Opposition, very rightly so.

Another very peculiar thing that
had happened was the suggestion
contained in a Message from the
Governor that as the Colonial Sec-
retary was leaving the island, and
the Assistant Colonial Secretary
also very shortly, a man should be
imported from England from the
Colonial Office to do the work here
for three or four months, That
seemed to the Opposition an insult
to the island’s public services. As
they knew, this suggestion was
turned down and the only people
who voted for it were those mem-
bers of the Executive who happen-
ed to be in the House.

Since then the Financial Secre-
tary, Mr. Petrie, had been ap-
pointed to act.as Colonial Secre-
tary and two other gentlemen had
been appointed to offices: in the
Colonial Secretary's Office. “If in
an emergency like this,” said Mr
Wilkinson, “there could not be
found a sufficiently able man lo-
cally to carry on the work of the
Colonial Secretary, we had better
been a crown colony.”

Tourist Industry

Referring to the tourist indus-
try, Mr. Wilkinson said that the
Opposition considered that this
should be encouraged as. much as
possible, even going so far as some
of the other colonies in allowing
new companies to be free from
income tax for a period of two or
three years. They were also sug-
gesting that these companies
should be allowed to import their
building material and all elaborate
fittings duty free. “You must cater
to the people from the United
States of America in the way they
are accustomed to,” said Mr. Wil-
kinson, “We are in favour of
allowing all that, because in Bar-
bados we only hfve one industry
at present of any importance, and
that as you know is the sugar in-
dustry. By all means let us en-
courage the tourist industry.”

Talking of the sugar industry
he sai fhere was a rumour about
town that none of the Opposition
was willing to go to England to
represent Barbados along with Mr.
Adams. “I want to tell you all now
that that is an absolute lie. In our
party there are five members who
are all up-to-date with all the
facts and figures on sugar; mem-
Bers who can tell youl how much
cane it would take to make a ton
of sugar, how many people are
employed in producing a ton of
cane, a ton of sugar and the like.
I make bold to say that there is

formation.
To Represent Sugar

| “In spite of all that the Govern-
ment deciced to send two mem-
bers. of their own party to England
to represent you and represent the
sugar industry of Barbados. I have
very great respect for Dr. Cum-
mins, but he cannot be expecied |!
to know as much about the pro-
| duction of sugar as the five men:-
| bers in my party to whom I have}
referred, In the interest of ihe,
| island, this is one of the occasion;
;on which party politics should
have been ignored and the two
; people best able to represent the
|industry sent to England.”

Referring to the Welfare Fund,
Mr, Wilkinson said that this money
had been subscribed mainly by
the taxpayers in England for the
benefit of the sugar workers in
the island. The fund now amount-
ed to over $800,000, and how was
it to be spent, he questioned. He
had asked a question about this in
the House the day the new Ses-
sion had begun, he said, but he
expected to get an answer just
before Christmas.

“Playing fields are necessary,
but there are not the only things
that should be provided for the
people. It is my personal view
that it is even more important to
have a roof over one’s head. What
is the good of a playing field when
one goes home to find his roof
leaking and therefore unable to
sleep in his bed. I feel the first
consideration in the disposal of
this fund should be the offering
of a gift of money to the people
to repair their houses. When this
was done tf/en playing fields could
be provided.”

Oil Bill

Mr. Wilkinson said that as they
knew, their rights and his had
been taken. away from them last
August when the Oil Bill was
passed by a slender majority. He
would now ask them what was the
result. It could only be regarded
as a hopeless mess for they were
even about to lose the little na-
tural gas they were get#ing in
town. They all hoped that oil was
in Barbados. He had heard that
it was about 10,000 feet in the
earth, but he hoped it would be
brought up. They certainly, how-
ever, did not like the method
which was adopted by the present
Government ih the dealing with
this matter.

Mr. Walcott said that the pres-
ent Government had been in
power since 1945, They had said
that they could do better than
others. His listeners” were the
judges of what they had or had
not done during their term of
office. ;



t
Election

There should have been an elec-
tion this year, he said, but the
Government had proceeded to give
themselves another year. The Op-
position regarded that as an im-
moral act; not that it was wrong
for a parliament to last three
years, but that it was wrong after
having got yourself in for two
years to give yourself another
year. That meant that the elec-
tion would not take place until
next year and they would there-
fore have to suffer and endure
for another year what they had
heard and what they would hear
later,

Whether or not they got adult
franchise, it would be a matter
for them to make up their minds
to keep in power those who now
had it, or whether they thought
a change was desirable.

Members of the delegation who
had gone to England were faced
with the problem of trying to
secure a greater quota of sugar.
He hoped their mission would be a
successful one, but as Mr. Wilkin-
son had told them, their members
on the delegation had been chosen
hadly, indeed very badly. ,

United Front

When it came to deal with for-
eign policy, or on a matter which
concerned 4 nation or an island so
much as that of sugar, a united
front should be presented. It was
therefore a great surprise when
they heard that Mr. Wilkinson at
least, was not chosen from their
Party to represent the island on
the sugar question. They had got
to remember that sugar was one
of the things out of which Mr.
Wilkinson made his living, It was
something he knew about and
would have been able to put be-
fore the Colonial Office forcibly.

It had been said in the House
of Assembly and they, his listen-
ers, had heard it time and again,
that the outlook for the colony was
very bleak if they did not get a
greater quota for their sugar pro-
duction quite apart from the ques-
tion of a greater price.

The Opposition had heard that it
was the intention of choosing one
of their party and particularly Mr.
Wilkinson, to go along with Mr.

delegation but that members of the
Adams’ Party insisted that one of
their party should be taken. They
had taken that very amiable and
likeable person Dr. Cummins. H¢
had said so because his courtesy
and demeanour in th
that of a man with whom anybody
would be proud to be associated,
but this did not speak of his ability
to handle the sugar problem.

Mr, Walcott said that a few
weeks ago after the Governor's
speech had been made, a gentle-
man of great repute and not in
politics told him that if he (Mr.
Walcott) had been on the Execu-
tive he would have said that he
had written the Governor's speech
Having heard that gentleman say
the speech was an excellent one,
he felt that that was a great com-

pliment to his party, the Electors |

Association.

Referring to this speech he said
that it was private enterprise from
the beginning, in the centre and at
the bottom and that was what his
party had advocated four years

ago.
Laughed At

Only about three weeks ago
when Mr. Mottley said on the floor
of the House that there should be
a Public Utilities Board he was
laughed at by members of the
other Party. Now the Governor
in his speech had endorsed the
policy the Electors Association had
been advocating for the past four
years for the setting up of such a
Board,

The Governor in his reference
to the Civil Service said: “I feel
that Barbados has put itself rather
in the position of a patient who
is suffering from a wasting disease
and who periodically, when he
begins to feel really ill, calls in a
specialist and seeks his advice.
After having obtained this advice,
he patient proceeds to ignore it
until he is again warned of the
seriousness of his trouble and then
he proceeds to change his special-
ist hoping that a second or even
third opinion will be less alarm-
ing.”

For this, Mr. Walcott said that
Commissioner Adams was import-
ed as one of those specialists.

When one had to deal with a
specific problem, it was only right
to get the best man for the job.
He wished them well, however,
because they might find them-

trained Anaestheticist. At the
moment at the Hospital, it very
often happened that a surgeon
doing an operation was obliged,
for want of staff, to give the Spinal
Anaesthetic himself. If anything
happened for instance, if the blood
pressure of the patient dropped,
there was no one there to help
with it. That, in his view,’ was a
very deplorable state of affairs
indced.

He knew that the Staff Com-
mitiee had on two occasions sent a
strong recommendation to the
Governrnent, saying that it was
urgent to have an. Anaestheticist..
The C.M.O. had to hisdenowledge
since December opr January jalso:
recommended thatery The CuM Ox
in fact, was in touch With @ tain-
ed Anaestheticist: during » those
months. : rine ’
Sail The Necessity

Wile he was im favouat‘of the
legislation sent down to :proy me
for an increase of statl, there was
still the necessity of; shaving: the
Ancetheticist. He wouldesay with
all emphasis that it was Mote#air/id
expect . man to give an ck
and perform an abdomimaloper-
ation at the same time. He was
certain that while he was on the
staff he would not have accepted.
that responsibility. It “was too
much strain. $4 ¢

He believed that they could get
a trained man at the moment if
the Government would take the
necessary action, 7

Referring to what Mr. Petrie
had said about free quarters, Dr.
Massiah said that at the moment
the Hospital could only supply
five residences for medical staff.
Under the Order there were 11
people. That meant that six of
them would have to be provided
with quarters outside.

No Residences Near

In addition, it would b& prac-
tically impossible, so far as he
knew, for them to get residences
in close proximity tothe hospital,
and that. would automatically
mean that travelling would have
to be provided for.

There was another point, said
Dr. Massiah. Up to the present,
as far as he knew, there had been
no advertisement in the Medical
Press for staff at the Barbados
General Hospital. Recruitment
was supposed to be done through
the Colonial Office.

The position was that when a
young man was graduated, he
went into the Colonial Office and
said that he wanted to join the
Colonial Service. Barbados had
no Colonial Service as such, and
a man coming down here was en-
tering a cul de sac. If after a
couple of years practice in Bar-
bados he found that he did not
want to remain, he would have
to start all over again in another
ountry. It was a waste of time.

Advertisement





The Hospital Staff should be
allowed through the Medical
Superintendent or the Director of
Medical Services to advertise in
the Medical Press. Not only in
England, but in Canada as well
they eould find young men willing
to come on contract for two or
three years and fill those posts

Dr. Massiah supported the idea
cf not allocating a special ninber
cf nurses under the Heads “Staff”
and “Charge.” Under the scheme
they planned to get 66 trained

urses. At the moment however,
‘here was not room for them
The scheme should be a long term

ud gradually developing one. H

oe taken on, it would be

sie noped, speaking generally

hat the Government would n,

songer continue in the even teno:

of their way, but that they woula

ao something at the Hospitai for

tne good of the people of the

island. :
Supports

Dr. St. John supported the
views of Dr. Massiah, saying that
the -appointment of a Spec.alist
Anaestheticist at the. Hospital. was
an essential appointment. Dr.
Massiah had not exaggerated one
bity Dr. St. John said.

It was true that there was
cnly one House Surgeon at the
Hospital, and they of the Visit-
ing Staff had agreed to help in
the night casualty. work. They
bad done that because they felt
it was their duty, but they felt
that the! Government haa not
done all*that*could~be done to
obtain « House Surgeon.

He agreed that the Government
should: mot (rely on ‘the: Colonial
OMee,' but’ shduld ‘advertise for
thore posts in the Medical Press
inthe United: Kingdém,° Canada
and the US.A. ~

Serious Omission

Wheres®the absence of a
Specialist Anaestheticist was con-
cerned,,he considered that one of
the "most serious “omissions that
the Government could make. They
had accepted the recommendation
of Dr. Hallinan, who said that the
post might later be considered.
But there was no question.:of
“might” or “later”. It was ex-
tremely urgent. If the post was
created, the Director of Medical
Services would be able to fill .it
at short notice.

There would be only one
House Surgeon’ for the next two
months ‘at-feast.© It was true
that’ one ‘was “due to arrive ‘in
the neer future, but as soon as
he arrived the present one would
be leaving. One House Surgeon
could not be expected to give
all the anaesthetics and do all
his other work at the same
time. wo
Atarrangement had recently

beefinmade: whereby a doctor, not
comm cted «withthe hospital, was

Not Good Enough

Those conditions were not good
enough, especially when _ the
Director of Medical Services had
recently informed the Visiting
Staff tat the Attorney General
had ruled that if any doctor at the
hospital was guilty of negligence
“he and he alone is liable.” It was
easy to accuse a doctor of negli-
gence, but it was not so easy for
him. to defend himself,
“The Visiting Staff at the
Hospital is an unhappy and
angry staff’, Dr. St. John said.
“Not only because of the condi-
tions under which they work,
but because they cannot be sure
that they will not receive the
treatment that one of their
colleagues recently received
when he was accused of
negligence. '
“When'that affair was being ip-
vestigated, he gave his evidence
He was not invited to be presen‘
when evidence was being given
against him, so that he had no op-
portunity of answering. In con-
trast, it was ruled by the Director
of Medical Services in a recent
case where a ward maid was ac-
cused of inefficiency and insolence,
that the ward maid should be
present’ when) evidence was being
given against her.

Justice Denied

“That elementary principle
which we associate with British
Justice was denied to our colleague,
and to use the words of his letter
of dismissal, ‘his appointment was
terminated.” ;

“I speak with restraint when
I say that the Staff do not blame
the Head of the Administration
for the decision, which was the
result-of-an act of injustice ‘to
our former colleague, whereby
His Excellency was wrongly ed-
vised both as to the eviilencc
given against him, and the man-
ner in which. that eviderice swas
taken.” ' i
Mr. Pile said he would not go

into all the details that had been
gone into. He smiled when he
said, how strange it was to see two
doctors agreeing as the last two:
members had agreed. '
Turning to another point, Mr.
Pile said he understood that the
reason why the doctors mention-
ed in the Order, were being given
s



free quarters in addition to their
rather large inereases in salary,
was'not so much to increase their
salaries indirectly, but in order
that they ‘might be on the spot
If that was so; it was evading the
issue to give them house. allow-
anee unless they had the,luck to
yet a house close to. the hospital
Move or Rebuild

Mr. Pile then: referred io the
acheme to move the hospital or
lo rebuild it on its present site,
saying that that had been a matter
ot debate for years. ‘There must
be a great deal of matter dealing
with that in the hospitalrarchives.
There must be several points: in
those discussions which would be
useful to the Government at the
present time :

It’ was a subject in which he
was interested. Everyone who
had the welfare of the people at
heart must°be interested. There
was another important: thing —
preventive medicines» Ifyirtiey
could) by preventive medicine
save people from needing» hos-
pital treatment, they: would
save unnecessary suffering, and
cheapen im the long run the cost
of medical services, speaking gen-
erally. { ®

Excellent Speeches

Mr. Gale said that they had
heart two very excellent speeches,
one from each of the two doctors
on the Council, and it would seem
that the hospital was in a very
bad condition at present. Dr.
Massiah had pointed cut that the
number of patients was increasing
yeartyyand the Medical Staff was
keeping pace with the increase.

He hoped that the Government
would take to heart the remarks
made ‘by the two doctors, one of
whom had ‘been connected with
the hospital for many years, while
the other’ was connected with it
at present, They were competent
to criticise the administration of
the Hospital. ‘

Mr, Gale then asked the. acting
Colonial Secretary what members
of the Hospital Staff came under
the Civil~.Establishment Order.
and what members did not. Were
nurses Civil Servants? The Hos-
pital was run by the Government,
and it seemed an anomaly that
some of the staff were considered
Civil Servants and some were not
so considered, while those new
posts: came under the: Civil Estab+
lishment Order. : ; f

Who Is:In Charge?

The President asked the Act-
ing Colonial Secretary if he could
inform, him who was really in
charge of the running of the hos-
pital... Around the Council: table,
there were many, members who
had. been members of the old
Hospital Board. They had agreed.
to change it from that old Board
which was largely a_ political
one—in the hope that the Hospital
would be better run than it was
run by politicians, who he believ-
ed were sometimes more swayed
by self advertisement for their
constituents than by the benefit of
the sick.

That had been his hope, but the
old Board could never be accused
of trying to run the Hospital with
one resident surgeon. They had
managed better than that. He
wanted to ask the Acting Colonial
Secretary if the Governor-in-
Executive Cammittee listened to
the advice of the Hospital Advis-
ory Board, or if it was the Direc-
tor of Medical Services, or who.
it was that really had the say in
advising, the Governor-in-Execu-
tive Committee as to the best
course to pursue.

Did it Take Advice ? :
After’ the Governor-in+Execu-
tive Committee was advised did it
take that advice, or did it de
cide what should be done just as
a political board would have de-
cided?

The idea of providing free quar-
ters. was a rather vague. one,
when it was pointed out that it
was difficult to get suitable quar-
ters anywhere. To him there
was also some doubt as to what
sum of money the Governor-in-
Executive Committee intended to
spend on free quarters. One
member of the Staff might say
that he could get a house for $50
or $60 a month, Another might
say $120.

He did not want to be purely
critieal’, | He wanted to be con-
struétive too, the President said,
He wanted to ask the Acting Colo-
nial Secretary if the Government
had cOnsidered using the derelict
premises which they had owned
tor so leng at Stockton just across
fram the~hospital, and whether a
series of bungalows could not he
erected on those premises for the
use of the statf, That was prose
vided. it was intended that th»
hospital; should remain on its
present site i

Reconsider

He hoped'that the Government
would reconsider their decision
that the creation of the new posts
should he compensated for by the
abolition. of: one: House Surgeon
anc \Anaestheticist. i

Mr, Pile said he could not allow
to Pass; unchallenged the imputa-
tions that the ald Hospital Board

not say that a member might ndt
be swayed sometimes by political
considerations, but he did mat
think the Board could have been

Mr. Petrie replying, said there
were, some points. om which he
would have difficulty in replying.
He would. do his. best, syhowever .
He said the Order was the -first
instalment of Government's action
to clear-up the present ‘unfortun-
ate position at the Hospita}. - -

It was true that the Government had
accepted the suggestion taat the Pasts a)
House Surgeon Anaestheticist shoul:

Medical Officers But the Government
had every intention of considering Dr
Hallinan'’s recommendation that the fill.

Imperative
It was imperative that quarters

be provided so that the doctors i
be on the premises. But if they ie
not be got near the hospital, it could not
be expected that the doctor should pay
for them himself because_ihey were not
near the hospital. As soon as plans were
made fox the building or rebuilding of
the hospital, provision would have to be
at for accommodation of the medical
sta

Who Advises ?

Mr. Petrie further said that the Hos-

Trygve Lie Has
' A Peace Plan

SAYS INDIAN EDITOR

PARIS, May 23.
Mr. Rusky Karanjia, editor of
two Indian newspapers, said to-
day he —s that Mr. Trygve
Lie, Unt Nations Secretary:
General, had brought back fromm
Russia a total peace plan, involv-
ing everything from the atom and
hydrogen bombs to admission of
the New China to the United Na-
tions, and probably a Big Four

meeting.
After a
with Mr. Trygve:Lie shortly be-
fore he left for London for talles
with British leadets, Mr, Karanjia

said: “I had every reason 'te:¢on~ |
clude from my-interview ‘that Mr-|

Lie had something concrete in his
pocket, details of which he was
not willing to reveal at this stage.

“Mr. Bie was very happy about
his Moscow trip and laughed off
the idea of war, and pooh-poohed
all talk of it.

“I got the impression that he

was optimistic and happy that the |

big hurdle had been crossed
through his visit to Moscow.”

Mr. Karanjia said Mr. Lie was
also pleased with talks he had
with the French Premier, Georges
Bidault, and the Foreign Minister,
Robert Schuman, after the Mos-
cow meetings.

HORROCKSES, one of the greai

names in cotton, are responsible
for a variety of gay, strapless
cotton beach dresses, Many two,
three and four-piece outfits are

made in deep “jungle” prints, or

spotted material. It) is noticeable
in London how the prices for
these clothes have gone down i

the last year. Twelve months ago,
it was still considered fairly dar-

ing to wear strapless dresses in
the town during the day. Now,
almost all summer dresses are
made in this way, with nee

boleros to “cover up.”

Illustrated is a two-piece in
cotton, printed with extra large
white spots. The bra is particu-
larly well fitting, with three but-
tons down the front, and the brief
pants are neat Over it can be
worn a matching hip-length
berch coat,

These outfits are seldom worn
for swimming. They are far more
suitable — and comfortable — for
lazing in the sun. And to carry
with you on your excursions to
the seaside are straw accessories
of every kind. Apart from the
attractive straw necklaces and
and earrings, which Paris has
acclaimed as the latest thing in.
fashion jewellery, there are hand-
made raffia sandals, big straw
hats tied on with a bandana hand-
kerchief, straw hold-alls, minute
baskets with gathered fabric tops
—but not, as yet, straw skirts.

But if it’s opulence you are
seeking, perhaps the most valu-
able bathing costume in Britain
would appeal to you. It glitters—
and it is GOLD—24-carat gold, in
fact, worth £75. It was model-
led this week for British Indus-
tries Fair buyers at a West-End
night club.



Strikers Resume
Work In St. Kitts

ST. KITTS, May 23,





The Labour nion called a
24-hour token strike at 1 p.m.,
yesterday. While loading a_ ship
with sugar for Canuda, lighter
with sugar remained laden until
work was resumed at 1 p.m,
today

upping merchants were in
formed that the Union reserved
the right to call a similar strike
at any time on any ship in con-
sequence of the shippers’ refusal
to pay by Day instead of by ton

for handling cargo

The strike has not, otherwise
affected the sugar industry. Work
is proceeding normally.

P Ue i ment. bui Mill me pi, vrnor had made tuch an excelled: .-peech at the opening of the present that he had to refer t u IT Tnere wai one thing His ExewlI'IKV had left out, however, aiu that was the importance of emlf ration. They all knew that Barbados was overcrowded anj that their only hope to get a decent standard of living; for the people was to And an outlet for soiruof them lo go abroad. There was not included In the Colonial Estimates, any large sum under the Ilea-t ; tion," but he personally felt and ha knew his BOHHgUll of trie Opposition would agree with him. that correspondence on this subject was no good whatsoever. Contact had to be made with the ; eople of America and Canada <'.reetly to pp| n-uls and therefore he felt that it would have 1*1 n *tM lo \>r A Ida quite a liirue sum in the E timatas, say $15,000 or $20,000 for the purpose cf sending up to those places, people who could make ihe necessary contacts. New Posrt Office Mr. Wilkinson referred lo the Measure that had been oent down le the House of Assembl.s for $20,000 for drawing up a plan for the new Post Office. It was discovered, he said, that this would only be the first payment and that the final payment would bring the figure to about $30,000 in all. If his listeners had followed the debate they would sec that trat amount had been struck out of the Estimates and In the opinion of the Opposition, very rightly so. Another very peculiar thing that had happened was the suggestion contained In a Message from the Governor that as the Colonial Secretary was leaving the island, and the Assistant Colonial Secretary also very shortly, a man should be imported froQi England from the Colonial Office to rlo the work here for three or four months. That seemed to the Opposition an Insult to the island's public service* A they knew, ihis suggestion was turned down and the only people who voted for it were those members of the Executive who happened to be in the House Since then the Financial Secretary, Mr. Petrie. hod been appointed to r tu What's on Today Opening of Empire Week at Combermere School at %  000 Jin Aquatic.

In the intere island, this is one of the o on which party politic hava been ignored and the two people best able to reprtf'nt the industry sent to England Referring to the Welfare Fund, Mr. Wilkinson said that this money had bryn subscribed mainly by the taxpayers in England for the bsjnaflt of the sugar workers bl the island. The fund now amounted to over $800,000. and how was It to be spent, he questioned. He had asked a question about this in the House the day the new Session had begun, he said, but he expected to get an answer Just before Christmas. "Playing fields are necessary, but there are not the only thing.-, that should be provided for the people. It is my personal view that it is even more important to have a roof over one's head. What is the good of a playing field when one goes home to find his roof leaking and therefore unable to sleep in his bed. I feel the first consideration in the disposal of this fund should be the offering of a gift of money to lhe people to repair their houses. When this was done t/en playing fields coul l be provided Oil BUI Mr. Wilkinson said that as they knew, their rights and his had been taken away from them last August when the CHI Bill was passed by a slender majority. He would now ask them what was the result. It could only be regarded as a hopeless mess for they were even about to lose the little natural gas they were getting In town They ill Imped that oil was in Barbados. He had heard that It was about 10.000 feet in the earth, but he hoped it would be brought up. Thev certainly, however, did not like the method which was adopted by the present DoVeft) nt in lhe dealing with this matter Mr Walcott said that the piesent Government had been In power since 1045. They had said that they could do better than others. His listeners* were the Judges of what they had or had not done during their term of office. Election There should have been an election this year, he said, but the Government had proeeeded to give themselves another year. The Opposition regarded that as an unmoral act: not that it was wrong for a parliament to last three years, but that it was wrong after having got yourself in for two years to give yourself another year. That meant that the election would not take place until next year and they would therefore have lo suffer and endure for another year what they had heard and what they would hear later Whether or not they got adult franchise, it would be a matter for them to make up their minds to keep in power those who now had it. or whether they thought I change was desirable. Members or the delectation who had gone tu England were faced with the problem of trying to secure a greater quota of sugar He hoped their mission would be a successful one. but as Mr Wilkinson had told them, their members on lhe delegation had been chosen badly. Indeed very' badly. United Front When it came to deal with foreign policy, or on a matter which concerned i nation or on island MJ much as that of sugar, a united front should be presented. It was therefore a great surprise when they heard that Mr Wilkinson at least, was not chosen from their Party lo represent the island on the sugar question. They had got to remember that sugar was one of the things out of which Mr Wilkinson made his living. It waa something he knew about and would have been able to put before lhe Colonial Office forcibly. It had been said in lhe House at Assembly and they, his listeners, had heard it lime and again, thai the outlook for the colony was very bleak if they did not get a greater quota for their sugar production quite apart from the question of a greater price. The Opposition had heard that it was the Intention of choosing one 1 of their party and particularly Mr. Wilkinson, to go along with Mr. 1 THE FOSTERS v.hi.h n the senior H K S I PRIZE for Combcrm.'re School. piCurfP 1 ; rirknt.

Mr. Walcott said that a few weeks ago after the Governor's speech had been made, a gentleman of great icpule and nut in politictold turn that it he (Mi Walcott) had been on the Executive he would have said that In had written lhe Governor's speech Having heard that gentleman say the speech was an excellent one. he felt lhat that was a great comj plimenl to his party, the Electors %  Association. deferring to this speech he said that it was private enterprise from the beginning, in the centre and at the bottom and that was what his party had advocated four years ago. Laughed At Only about three weeks ago when Mr. Mottley said on lhe floor of the House that there should I* • Public Utilities Board he was laughed at by members of the other Pally. Now the Governor In his speech had endorsed the policy the Electors Association ha.1 been advocating for lhe past foui years for the selling up of such a Board. The Governor In his refere n ce In the Civil Seivice said: "I feel that Barbados has put il-c-lf rathej in the position of a patient WDO is suffering from a wasting disease and who periodically, when he begins to feel really ill. calls in a specialist and seeks his advice. After having obtained this advice, he patient proceeds to ignore it until he is again warned of the seriousness of his trouble and then he proceeds to change his specialist hoping lhat a second or even third opinion will be less alarming."
