Higher Wages
Or We Strike

SAY FINNS

HELSINKI, Aug. 17.

e Finnish Parliament was to-
lay summoned for next Thurs-
day——cutting its summer recess by
nearly two weeks—to det ate the
“higher wages or we strike” ulti-
matum from key trade unions
Agrarian Premier U. Keykonen
ordered the recall after consulta-
tions with President Juho Paasi-
kivi and an extraordinary Cabinet
meeting last night.

The unions are demanding wage
increases up to 50 per cent, des-
pite a pegged wages agreement
with employers last April. Under
this agreement made under the
threat of a general strike, wages
were increased by 15 per cent. all
round, and then pegged to the cost
of living index to rise only with
prices. If granted the increases
now demanded will force up Ythe
price of metal goods which Fin-
land must sell to Russia at “cur-
rent world prices” under their
new trade agreement.—Reuter.

Germans Want
Their Honour
Restored

HAMBURG, Aug 18.
Former German Army Officers
said today that they wanted their |
honour “publicly restored,” before
they considered taking part in
West European defence.

For five years they declared
that German Army Oificers and
men suffered discrimination and
slander. The demand was made
through their organisation Bruder-
schaft in a bulletin publishea
here. Germany, the bulletin said
bad conducted fewer wars than
England or France since 1813, and
“we do not wish to dwell on the
old story of how German soldiers
from recruits to generals have
been treated in prison camps and
at individual or collective trials.”
Most members of Bruderschaft are
former German Staff Officers, who
still maintain a “Planning Staff”

Freitas, who has relatives here,
is one of the delegates to the

and has previously attended the
United Nations Assembly, This
experience alone, however is
hardly likely to qualify him for
the Foreign Secretaryship. There
are several others who, on this

score, might fit the bill, .
Next week Mr, de_ Freitas
leaves for a tour of Amerir-,
where he lectures at Chicago
University and to a trade union
summer school. He will also give
a semes of talks on behalf of the
British Information Service in
Washington. And while on the
other side of the Atlantic, he will
probably take the opportunity to
exchange, at Government level,
views on civil defence, Civil de-
fence is Mr. de Freitas’s particu-
lar province at the Home Office.

Wedding

AMBROSE CHURCH was the

.:
S scene of a quiet wedding on oe

Tuesday afternoon, when Mr, Ivay
Burrowes was marriéd to Miss
Hazel Moe of Martindales Road,
and one of the singers in the Paul!
Wilkin’s Programme, which is
heard over Radio Distribution.

The bride, who was given ii
marriage by her brother, wore «
dress of white figured georgette,
while her headdress was kept in
place by a wreath of lime blos-
soms. Her bouquet was of tube
roses and anthurium lilies,

Miss Millicent Lynch, was Maid
of Honour, while Mr. William Bur-
rows, uncle of the Bridegroom was
the Bestman.

The ceremony, which was fully
choral was performed by the Act-
ing Vicar, Rev. Alleyne and the
Reception was held at the home of
Mr. and Mrs, L. Lynch of Deacons
Road.

Snakes Alive!

MAN with a strange hobb,

is Mr. L. U., Cross, member
of the Trinidad team that shot
at Bisley last month. He collects
poisonous snakes, and has a large
collection at home, including a
bush master and a fer de lance.
While at Bisley, Cross was de-
lighted to capture, with a forked
stick, an adder that was lurking
in some gorse bushes. For week«
afterwards he could be seen in
public parks digging up worms
for his pet to eat. Eventually,
however he found this too much
trouble, su he has lodged it at the
London zco till he returns to
Trinidad. Last week Mr. Cross
went to Whipsnade to have a look
at another collection of reptiles.
Whipsnade is a large open afr
zoo in Berkshire where animals—
though not, of course, snakee—are
allowed plenty of freedom.

On Holiday

I R. C. W. W. GREENIDGE,

England last week for a holiday

lucky enough to get a flat in Nice.
It is only recently that Mr.
Greenidge returned to London
from Geneva, where he had been
collecting material in regard to
slavery allegations in the Middle

T IS THE custom when a iour
ing team has completed its
programme for the Captain t)
issue a statement to the Press
If that procedure is carried out
this summer at the conclusion of
the West Indies visit to England
one London journalist in particular
is due for a nasty shock.
Comments which have been
made on the West Indies team
have been all carefully noted
by John Goddard, West Indies
skipper. He has, I understand,
compiled a little “black béok”
into which all unjust and unproyen
criticisms have been filed.

(From Our Own Correspondent)

GEORGETOWN.

GOVERNOR
REPRIEVES
MURDERER

(From Our Own Correspondent)

: GEORGETOWN
oe oe Governor,
é " ampbell Weolley
K.C.M.G., OBE, MC. has beet
pleased after consideration in
Executive Council, to commute
the statutory sentence of death
pronounced upon James Samuel
Rock for the murder of his wife.
Cecilia Joyce Rock to penal
servitude for life.
Rock, a native of St. Vincent
was sentenced to death last month
for the murder of his St. Vincent
born wife, whose throat was cut
with a penknife, last March. When
Prisons Superintendent Sam Baker
conveyed the news to him, he was
beyond words, and some minutes
elapsed before he found his voice
to shower thanks on his Counsel
Mr. C. E. R. Debidin, whose
petition for the commutation of
the death sentence has brought
him a new lease of life.

Another Life

“You've saved my life; you've
given me another life,” Rock told
his lawyer. “My only thought
when the Prison Chief came io
me was that I was starting out on
my last walk.” He almost collapsed
when he was told he was not to
die, and repeatedly asked if he





His trial before Mr. Justice
Ward, lasted four days. From then
on he had been waiting for what
seemed the inevitable, although
“deep down imside” he said he
felt “something would happen.”

Rock told reporters that he was
convinced prayer accomplished his
deliverance from the gallows.
“Ever since I was condemned I had
been praying, I never stopped
reading the Bible. My prayers
were for myself and my lawyer.
I prayed that Mr. Debidin receive
the courage and strength to carry
on the fight for me.”

In his petition Mr. Debidin who
was instructed by his Solicitor-
Politician brother, Hon. D. P.
Debidin during the trial, urged
among other things that the cir—
cumstances of the case pointed
more to suicide than homicide,



Jamaica Wants
_ Banana Contract

(From Our Own Correspondent)

KINGSTON,

A long-term contract for the
purchase of Jamaica bananas and
the price arrangement for 1951
are among matters to be dis-
cussed at negotiations which are
scheduled to take place. within
the next month or so in England
between the Ministry of Food ana
a delegation from Jamaica.

The delegation will represent
both the Government of Jamaica
and the all-Island Banana Grow-
ers Association and as on pre-
vious oceasions will consist of
Mr. D, C. Ferguson, Commisioner
of Commerce and Industries, Mr.
R. F. Williams, Chairman of the
Association, the Hon. Rudolph
Burke, President of the Jamaica
Agricultural Society, and Mr.
Clifford deLisser, a member of
the Association’s executive.

The present contract with the
Ministry of Food expires in 1952.







now 645 families settled.

The land is allotted in blocks of
from 3 to 15 acres in accordance
with the size and the ability of the
family to cultivate.
holding is 7 acres per family for
the cultivation of rice amd ground
provisions. Land is also provided
for settlers’ dairy cattle, dry cows,
steers and vearlings and settlers
are encouraged to engage i ani-
mal husbandry

Mr. Laing’s repor: aiso records
an overall increase ip the collec-
tion of rates by the Village and
Country Districts in (949 as com-
pared with , collections during
1948,

The aciual per cent of tates-col-
lected during 1949, was 83.9 per
cent as against 77 per cent, in
1948.

Unique Sysiem

Government holds that the Co!-
ony’s Local Government system
which is unique in the British
Colonial Empire provides a good
rolitice1 and administrative educa-
tion for the rural population of
the Colony, and it has been the
policy to encourage what are called
Country Districts where Gouncil-
lors are nominated by Government,
to apply for what is called Village
Status which enables registered
voters of a district to elect two-
thirds of the members of their
Village Council and the Council to
elect its Chairman.

The coastlands of British Gui-
ana, for the administration of
which the Commissioner of Local
Government is responsible, are

divided into five administrative
districts, each under a _ District
Commissioner.

Revenue Up

In the five districts, revenue to-
talling $1,194,322 was collected
during 1949, under the various
heads of Colony Revenue( main
source——-Excise and Licences).
This represents an increase of
$141,846 over the collection for
1948.

There are at present 33 Village
Districts and 57 Country Districts.
Under tte Local Government Or-
dinance, Village Authorities are
entrusted with the management of
the administrative and financial
business of the village and with its
government generally, and they
are expected to shoulder the re-
sponsibilities which accompany
these powers, ;

In addition to his substantive
duties, the Commissioner of Local
Government is the Social Welfare
Officer and is responsible for the
administration of Land Settlement
Schemes. He also has administra-
tive charge of the Prisons, Re-
formative Systems (Approved
Schools for Boys and Girls and
Probation), and Social Assistance,
and performs the statutory duties
of the Immigration Agent General.

Interest Increases

His report to Government shows
that increasing interest in the
Social Welfare Schemés is being
displayed by the community. No
less than 24 applications have been
received for assistance in the form
of grants from Colonial Develop-
ment and Welfare Funds to meet

Jamaica
Delegates To
Visit U.S.A.

(From Our Own Correspondent)

KINGSTON
A Jamaica Government delega-
tion is shortly to visit the United
States to confer with the United
States Labour Placement Com-
mittee on the further large scale

recruitment of Jamaican farm
workers for U.S. farms

Members of the delegation are
expected to be the Hon. W. A.

Bustamante, Mrs. Rose Leon, sole
woman member (Jamaica Labour
Party) of the House of Represent-
atives, and Labour Adviser, Mr.
G. H. Scott.

One of the reasons for the pro-
posed mission is the increasing
unemployment in the island and
another is a countering of the

workers propaganda in the United ruled that no men of under 21;Gandhi broke at the end of the

recent anti-West Indian farm
States.
Recently the, Government sent

out feelers in official Washington
circles on this subject and the
delegation is to be a follow-up.



Air Survey Of B.G.

Forests Starts Soon

(From Our Own Correspondent)
GEORGETOWN
An aerial survey of more than
20,000 square miles of the forests
ot British Guiana will begin short-
ly. Mr, B..A. Hood of Air Survey
Co., Ltd. who arrived here on
Tuesday, said that two C-47 planes
will be flying direct from London,
and are scheduled to be here mid
next week.

Air Survey Company has con-
tracted to carry out an aerial

50 per cent of the cost of building | survey of over 20,000 square miles

community centres. The communi-
ties who will enjoy the benefits of
these centres are required to fin-
ance the remaining 50 per cent of
the cost. This may be in the form
of cash or ‘abour. Two community
centres were opened during 1949
and five were under construction
at the end of the year. Assistance
has also been given for the erec-
tion of seven other centres and
preliminary work in draining and
preparing the sites was in progress,
The remaining 10 applications are
receiving consideration for assist-
ance from local funds as the
C.D, & W. vote for 1949 was ex-
hausted.

including the Bartica triangle
Some work in the same connectiou
has already been done in the
Colony, by Aero Survey Ltd., of
Vancouver, Canada, a subsidiary
of Air Survey of London, but had
to be suspended temporarily due
to weather conditions.

The two survey planes due next
week will be coming with full
photographic equipment and crews,
and will fly direct from London
The party expects to remain in
the Colony for about three months,
depending largely on weather
conditions.

Youth Travel

THE yecent interchange of visits by
bodies of young people from the various
islands in the West Indies is indeed a hope-

,ful sign. During the week a party of
Scouts from Grenada returned home, the
Youthful Printers of Trinidad have just
| concluded a victorious tour of this island,

‘and the girls of the Bishop Anstey’s High
School of Trinidad also paid a visit here.
Meantime a party of Barbados Scouts are
still in St. Vincent.





The visits throughout the area of groups
of young people afford just that education
which is necessary tu foster a truly West
Indian outlook. It has the added advantage
that while they are still young and able to

'MOve around more easily and less expen-
‘sively they will have the opportunity to
learn much more than at the stage where
business and other considerations affect
the length of their stay.
| In the past there have been visits by
school boys of the secondary and first grade
schools. It is true that the war years were
) unsuitable and these visits have not yet
| returned to the normal fixture card. There
|is however no reason why such inter-
; colonial visits should be limited to boys of
' the better schools. There are other groups
such as scouts, youth organisations, sports
; ¢lubs, and others who could with similar
advantage organise such visits.

' But these should not be

Trinidad, British Guiana, Grenada, St.
\ Vincent and Barbados. The other islands
, of the Windward and those of the Leeward
| Islands might well be encouraged to under-

take similar visits and groups from the
| bigger colonies might well make it a point
_ to interchange with them, It is from visits
; such as these that the young people of one
, island will learn at first hand about
people in different islands and so under-
stand what are the problems and ad-
| vantages of the area as a whole.

limited to

With the West Indies headed towards
federation, whatever the rate of progress,
it is at least the pursuit of an ideal that the
people who live in the area should know
more of each other and the conditions
under which they work and live.

Travel amongst the young is the best
form of education. It deserves greater
assistance in the Caribbean from steamship
Companies than it gets.

Summer Visitors

THE delay in temporarily closing Sea-
well airport to heavy traffic has been for-
tunate for the development of tourism
between Venezuela and Barbados,

With the true caution of the real
optimists, Mr. Fred Goddard and Mr. Jean
| Iversen, who visited Venezuela in May to
‘introduce the summer package tours be-
tween Venezuela and Barbados were not
| certain on their return that the good effects
| of their trip would be noticed this year.

! The event has proved their caution to
| have been. too conservative.

' In fact figures for tourists brought to
‘Barbados during the last three months
show how successful has been their attempt
to encourage Venezuelan tourists to come
to Barbados.

| According to records of British West
| Indian Airways, that company’s planes
, brought ninety passengers from Venezuela
, to Barbados in June. In July the number
| was doubled and 180 passengers flew in.

\

Already 150 passengers have arrived this

‘month and there are reservations for 125
|More. August will have produced 275
| guests.

| Among the nine hotels who have offered
| package tours to Venezuelans there are
| 365 rooms available.

| The season has not ended. The package
, tours operate until October 31. But it can
‘ already be seen that the Venezuelans want
‘to come to Barbados during the summer
* season.

‘\ Next year it is almost safe to predict that
more hotel accommodation will be needed
‘in the summer months as it is now urgently
needed during the winter season.

| There is news too of the possibility of

| more Americans coming down from Puerto

| Rico.

Tourism is the only industry which will
ever approximate to sugar as a large
‘employer of labour and it is one of the
| easiest ways to earn hard currency for a
sterling area which is still anxious to
woo dollars.

The enterprise of those responsible for
the hotel industry in Barbados is welcome.
There is much leeway to be made up but a
start has been made.

For Robey, even in this autumu

off-weeks, and, when he does,
confesses that he feels rather
lost. It is difficult to acquire a
taste for leisure after being
Britain’s national funmaker for
well over half a century,

That is why the fashionable
first-night audience for Mister
Roberts gazed curiously at the
now rather frail-looking figure
who sat quietly in a box with
his wife.

STILL TOURING

GEORGE ROBEY is still

the footlights to watch many

When he is not taking part in
the touring revue presented by
Mrs, Robey — Blanche Littler—
Robey is in demand for speqjal
functions. (A fortnight ago he
opened a Conservative féte in
Brighton before 15,000 people.)

“What amuses me is_ the
number of times I’m asked to do
charity shows for old people, he
remarked.” “I look around my
audience, most of them younger
than I am—and wonder if they
shouldn’t be entertaining me!”

“Well, what is your retiring
date?” I asked Robey.

“Never—you’re not going to
see me retire!” he retorted, with
a flash of the Robey bulldog
spirit,

So, on these idle days, the
comedian who has become part
of Britain’s theatrical history
feeds the ducks in St, James's
Park, does his jig-saw puzzles,
and sketches, on the backs of
torn-up postcards, those auto-

(From Our London Correspondent.)
LONDON.

A West Indies Symphony Or-
chestra capable of performing
successfully in any part of the
world has long been the dream
of Rudolph Dunbar.

This year the famous British
Guiana-born clarinetist, composer
and conductor hopes to see his
dream take shape.

In November or early December
he returns to the West Indies for
the first time in 20 years to con-
duct and to give a series of re-
citals in all the islands, While
he is there he will seek local sup-
port for his scheme.

“T have long thought that the
West Indies should have such an
Orchestra” he told me this week.
“With Federation coming, it
would be a great cultural achieve-
ment for the area, Canada, Aus-
tralia, New Zealand and South
Africa all have their Symphony
Orchestras and there is no reasor
why the West Indies should not
follow suit, i

“West Indians are endowed with
a colossal amount of musical
talent and | am certain that if an
Orchestra could be formed, it
would be equal to any in the
world. There are in the West
Indies to-day players, who, al-
though they have never had an
opportunity to leave their own
jsiand and gain European back-
ground, are equal to any in the
Western Hemisphere.”

Dunbar himself will spend con~
siderable time during his tour
talent-spotting. If he sees or
hears any promising young musi-
cians he will encourage them and
pass on whatever knowledge he
can from his own experience.

He himself has come a long way
since the day in 1920 when, as
a boy of 10, he left British Gui-

ana to study music in the United
States.

His ambition at that time was
to become a famous coneert
pianist. But after several years
of study he decided to give up
the idea and learn instead the
clarinet.

To pay for his studies he ac-
cepted a wide variety of part-
time jobs, appearing some nights
in vaudeville and others in night
clubs,

In 1931, he went to France
where he continued his studies
at the Paris Conservatoire ot
Music and from there travelled
on to Germany and Austria, all
the time learning something more
about music.

Recognition did not come easily
and in Europe he had to continue
doing part-time jobs, one of which
was conducting a choir.

All these experiences, how-
ever, served to
knowledge and finally in 1938, he
began to see the first fruits of
his efforts. ;

The previous year he had writ-
ten a special ballet emfitled “The
Dance of the 21st Century” for
the Cambridge May Week. This
bollet was introduced into the
United States and achieved such
a success that the National Broad-
casting Company arranged a
coast-to-coast “hook-up,” with
Dunbar himself conducting.

To quote his own words “That
put me on the map. The Ameri-
cans began to see that I had some-
thing original and different to
say and I knew at last that I
had begun to establish myself”.

But all the while the shadow
of a new world war was casting
itself over Europe, and Dunbar,
anxious to play his part returned
to England in 1939.

DRY GQODS DEPT:

To, The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Judging by your leading
article it is proposed that mon-
opoly public utility companies
should be placed under three Com-
missioners, nominated by the Gov-
ernor for the term of five years,
who would have power to review
their operation and to revise their
charges, whether fixed by private
contract or by statute, and to this
end to make investigations and to
obtain all information and advice
that they deem expedient, the
costs and expenses being levied on
these companies.

This is strong medicine and, be-
fore taking it, consideration is
needed to make sure that the cure
is not worse than the disease.

To take the last point first, it
must not be overlooked that it is
the customers of these companies
who provide the money out of
which the companies pay their ex-
penses. Any considerable increase
in these expenses is likely to lead
to higher charges. When the cus-
tomers realize that it is they who
will pay for the Commissioners
and their activities, enthusiasm
may wane. Costs would need to be
counted carefully .and possible
benefit estimated.

I am not attracted by the pro-
posed power to revise private
contracts. As I think, commercial
health depends on confidence that
what a man promises that he will
perform, This confidence is an
essential factor in even the most
ordinary every day transactions.
Anything that tends to undermine
it, is, in my belief, hurtful to the

community. The law has pro-
tected the young and the weak
minded, but sane adults should be
expected to fulfil their obligations.

The proposal that the Commis-
sioners should be empowered to
override legislation {s surprising.
Surely the Legislature is and must
remain the supreme authority. If

proposal is too drastic, the ap-
pointment of Commissioners may
well be useful both to the Public
and to the Companies.

If the Commissioners were em-
powered to receive and to investi-
gate complaints, reporting their
findings both to the House of
Assembly and to the Legislative
Council, the report being also pub-
lished in the Press, it would, I be-
lieve, be beneficial all round. In-
deed the fact of the Commissioners’
existence would tend to prevent
acrimony. They should be enti-
tled to deal with the costs of their
enquiry as they may think just.

If the Commissioners’ duty were
to investigate and report no appeal
would be necessary, for the Leg-
islature would act as might be just.
But if they had power to enforce
their views, then I certainly agree
with you that there should be full
rights of appeal to the Courts of
Justice.

The Commissioners themselves
would, I suppose, be men of stand-
ing in the community, unbiassed
(in a relatively smal! place this
may be a difficulty) and of un-
questioned probity. It would be
well if they agreed to serve from
a sense of public duty and without
pay. Such positions should be
held for honour, and not be look-
ed on as rewards for this or that.
It would be unfortunate if these
companies’ customers came _ to
think that the charges they paid
were loaded to provide “jobs for
the boys.” Also I venture to sug-
gest a three year, instead of a five
year term,

May I add that Barbados has a
long history and a tradition of go-
ing its own way. Mischief has
been caused in the past by thrust-
ing upon it ready made garments
fitted to other figures, with too
little attention to essenital altera-
tions. If these reach-me-downs

Boys’ Club
To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Some people in this com-
munity conceive it their duty to
throw cold’ water on the efforts
of those who would help others
in any direction, These are the
people who do nothing, to others’
efforts they, cantribute nothing
and who are loudest in their
criticisms of everything,

Taking advantage of the court-
esy extended to him in the col-

umns of this newspaper, one
correspondent signing himself
“Anti Police Club” finds it

Strange. that the Police should
run a Boys’ Club, accuses the
Police of playing lukewarm witn
crime, and purposely misnames
pyr eon a Police Club.

other correspondent signin;
himself “R ident” ‘weites mt
more nonsense. He attempts to
gauge public feeling, condemns
the use of the former Guard
House, lies blatantly about
feeble people living in discom-
fort because of the presence of
the Club, proceeds to draw the
conclusion that the presence of
that Club makes the place a
slum area, and suggests that the
school opposite be used, and the
Guard House be put back.
Finally thas gentleman ‘admits
that “Since the withdrawal of
the Police from the Guard
House rowdyism has _ increased
in this area,”

To those who object to the
Police running the Boys’ Club,
I should like to say that they
should have been running a
club and the Police would have
had no need to do so. It is

clear that it is needed, judging
by the reception which it was
given; it is clear that it was

Lastly let me say that it seems
that the Police have shown a
finer sense of their responsibili-
ties and their duties than many
of those who hold themselves
out aa -outstanding aitigens. [
well remember that the same
agcusations were made against
Mr. John Beckles when he first
started the Childrens’ Goodwill
League. Today the tune is a
different one and those who now
curse it will one day come to
bless the establishment of the
Bay Street Boys’ Club.

People should not be allowed
to come from distressed areas
and other parts of the world
where they cannot sleep in peace
and try to tel] Barbadians how
they must run their own business.

PLAIN ;

Appreciation
To, The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Please grant me space in
your valuable columns to express
sincere thanks and appreciation to
the many people who have con-
tributed to make my short stay in
this island very happy and enjoy-
able.

I arrived here on Monday 7th
and leave to-day for my homeland
Grenada, with deep regret and an
everlasting remembrance of this
beautiful island, the very friendly
and entertaining people with
whom I came into contact and last
but by no means least, the home
of a very congenial atmosphere
which I was privileged to enjoy.

This morning I was asked, “If I
had to choose, where would I like
to spend my next vacation”, and
without hesitation, I replied, “Bar-
bados, if you please.”

Thanking you Mr. Editor, and
the“peopte of Barbados whom I
would be glad to meet in Grenada.

Two More
Boys’ Clubs

BY SEPTEMBER

B* THE END OF SEPTEMBER

it is expected to bring the
number of local Boys’ Club formed
by the Police to three. The Com-
missioner of Police now has two
more buildings and he hopes to
open these Clubs by the end of
next month.

In an interview with the
Advocate yesterday, Col. R. T.
Michelin, Commissioner of Police,
said that one of the buildings is

situated in the City, at Pinfold]

Street and will accommodate over

100 boys. |

The other is at Speightstown,
(situated on the sea) and will ac-
commodate 50 boys.- He said that
the furniture for both is now
being made. He is still looking
for other buildings to form more

Clubs |

FIRE OCCURRED at Bishop's

Court, Bishop's Court Hill atl

about 7.15 p.m. on Thursday. Only
a trimming board around the
building was burnt.

It is understood that a defective
electric wire, which ran under the
board, caused the fire. The Fire
Brigade and employees of the
Electric Company arrived on the
scene and the blaze was ex-
tinguished without further damage.

The building is the property of
the Governor-in-Executive Com-
mittee.
ke BISHOP of Dash Gap,

St. Michael reported to the
Police that his joiner’s shop at
the same address was broken and
¢ntered between 7 p.m. on Wednes-
day and 8.15 am. on Thursday
and a .quantity of tools to the
value of $67.84 were removed.

RIDGETOWN WAS WET and

gloomy up to about 2.30 p.m.
yesterday. intermittent showers
fell and this was mainly re-
sponsible for keeping the temp-
erature down to 83.5 degrees

Fahrenheit.

During the morning a few
clerks and businessmen were
caught without raincoats and

umbrellas but after their break-
fast hour the majority returned
prepared for the evening showers.

It was not until after 3 p.m.
that the day brightened. Many
dark clouds had passed over and
during the after-work hours these
folk did not need either umbrella
or raincoat.

The large umbrella erected for
the Constable on point duty op-
posite the Canadian Bank of Com—
merce, served its purpose. During
the occasional downpours this
Constable was still able to direct
traffic and keep it under control.
Prior to the erection of this
umbrella, many traffic jams could
be seen in Broad Street when the
Constable took shelter during a
shower

Wayside vendors were on many
occasions forced to take shelter
inside the stores. Some only
turew a tarpaulin over their trays
until the rain stopped. The gutters
and streets were very clean during
the evening.

KY. ROAw cepairs are}
being carried out aloyg the
St. James Coast.

About 200 yards of road, ex-
tending from Holder’s Corner to
Derricks Corner, has already been |
completed. , |

Yesterday, workmen were con-
tinuing their repairs, going North
ef Holder’s Corner. Gutters are}
being built up and side walks are
being made while the road is being
dug up in preparation for a new
surface,

Throughout the day, rollers,
pick axes, sledges, shovels and
other implements are in action.
These operations block half of the
road, causing a great delay in flow
of traffic. Flagmen, however, are
put at either end of the stretch
of road under repairs to prevent
a traffic jam. F

Around St. Albans Corner,
which is further to the North
along the St. James Coast, stones
and drums of colas have been
dropped along the side of the road.
Repairs to that road may soon be
underway.

LEXANDER JONES of Gall
Hill, Christ Church, reported
that his provision shop at the same
address was broken and entered
curing Wednesday night and a
quantity of articles ,to.the value
of $17.18 removed.
NE MOTORIST WAS charged
yesterday with failing to stop
at a Major Road. Of the five
traffic offences recorded two
motorists were charged for driving
their vehicles without a lighted
lamp to the rear and another for
stopping within 380 feet of a
corner.

A conductor was also charged
for not wearing his conductor’s
badge exposed to view.

A Flying Visit

SHORTLY after mid-day yes-
terday a B-17 Flying Fortress
arrived at Seawell airport from,
Puerto Rico, with a crew of eight.
They were, Col. R. T. King, Pilot,
U.S. Air Force; Lt. Col. R. V.
Travis. Co-Pilot; Lt, Col. J. W.

In an interview with the Advo-
cate, Col, King said that the flight
was to familiarise themselves with
the airfields in the Caribbean
Area, They had made a similar
flight to Trinidad two or three
weeks ago. Although he served in
B.G., Puerto Rico, Trinidad and
St. Lucia, during the last war, this
was his first touch-down at
Barbados.

Col. King and the crew spent a
few hours in Bridgetown, and re-
turned to their headquarters,

Mr. Skinner said that from. time
to time, bus concessionaires have
been coming to him asking for
new fares, That was going on

since that department was opened

in 1945 and there has been no

increase in fares since 1939

Rise In C.O.L.

Considering the constant rise in

the cost of living, the rise in price
of gasoline, he felt that the matter
should be gone into.

He drew up a chart repregenting

the mileage, routes and fares paid
on buses in the island, and invited
the concessionaires to a confer-
ence,

The concessionaires were given

charts on which they were asked
to make proposals. They made cer-
tain recommendations which were
not entirely agreed with by the
committee which went

from P.C. 86 Murray, a Sergeant
who is attached to Central Polite
Station. He said that about 1,15
a.m. on July 30 he was on patrol
duty on Roebuck Street near
Crumpton Street corner. He saw
a motor car coming down Roebuck
Street going in the direction of
the Purity Bakery. There wes no
rear light attached to the car
which was being driven at a
fast rate.

As soon as the car reached
as far as Carlton Browne’s
drug store he heard a noise as
if the car had struck someone
or something. He immediately
began to walk to the scene but
before getting there he en-
countered Oscar Minghs who
made a_ statement to him.
When he reached the scene
he saw a man lying on the
ground at the junction of
Church and Roebuck Streets
bleeding from a wound on his
head. This man he was told
was named Clarence Grant
better known as Lingward.
About 25 yards further down

there was another man also lying
on the ground and he was bleed-
irg profusely from the head. On
, seeing these conditions he sent a
message for the Police Van which
came and took both of the men
to the General Hospital.

Picked Up Hat

When the van had left Roebuck
Street he nicked up a hat be-
longing to Gregory — the second
mon he saw lying on the ground
and took it to the Station.
Minghs also went to the Station
with him.

To Set. Forde: Before the car
passed him he was walking heats
Roebuck Street from the direstiot?
of the Globe Theatre. This car
was the only vehicle that passed
kim during that time.

He said that it must be remem-

bered that the law says that the
minimum stage is % mile and the
maximum fare is 3c. a stage.

The concessionaires were not
nsking for increases beyond their
limits, but in the interest of the
travelling public, the best proce-

dure was a “levelling up” system.

‘Cheap Service

Arguments put forward to him
by the Concessionaires were that,
firstly, Barbados has a very cheap
bus service as compared with other
places; and secondly, 2c. per mile
was paid years ago and was not
considered exhorbitant. Why is it
that the 2c. per mile has not yet
been increased ?

These, the Director said, were
fairly strong points. but his com-
mittee would have had to view the
matter from two angles.

Present at the conference was
Mr. C. B. Ward, Chief Inspector of
the Department of Highways and
Transport.

‘Institutes in England and, in 1917,

St. George Women’s

Institute Revived
Doll-Making Class Begins Wednesday

THERE was formerly a Women’s Institute in Barbados but
this ceased to function about 12 months ago. It was formed
by women of the Ellerton Village, St. George.

‘ was however revived by Mrs. Eleanor Baker of England
on August 9 when Officers were elected. Mrs. Baker is a
member of the Women’s Institute at Dorset. Unfortunately
she leaves on August 22 for the U.K. after spending two
years and three months in the island.

In an interview with the the Women’s Institute Organisa-
Advocate yesterday Mrs. Baker tion for making jam from sur-

educational facilities is being met
by lecture courses in conjunction
with the Workers’ Educational

schools. In 1947 the first summer
school was held at Upton Manor,
the home of Lady Lees, in Dorset,

General Discussion

Women’s Institutes are gather-
ings of country women (usually
confined to villages with not more
than 4,000 inhabitants) who meet
together at least once a month to
discuss matters of interest to them
all. They may be rich or poor,
educated or simple, but all come
to learn what, they can and to
teach all they know.

The travelled lady of the
manor can give a talk on strange
lands and customs; the labourer’s
wife can demonstrate the ancient
craft of quilting; the music
lover organise a choir.

All pay the same subscription
and have the same rights and
privileges, The Vicar’s wife and
her young maidservant attend
together. The Queen and the
two Princesses are all members
of the Sandringham Women's
Institute.

In size the Women’s Institutes
may vary from the larger and
more properous ones of 100 to
150 members, often owning their
own Hall, and running a Choir,
Dramatic Society, Needlework
Guild and Library, to a small one
of 15 to 20 members. The manage-
ment is always the same—by a

Opens With Song

Each meeting commences with
the singing of Blake’s “Jerusalem”
or some other song, followed by
discussion of business, then a talk,
cemonstration or debate, Fre-
quently a competition in cookery
or craft work is judged and awards
given, or an Exhibition (old china,
garden flowers, embroidery, etc.,
etc.) forms a focus of interest ana
discussion.

Then follows the “Social half-
hour” which should be as informal
as possible, affording opportunities
for all members to mix and be-
come better acquainted, and for
neweomers to make friends. For
this purpose some entertainment
in which all can join is best—
games, charades, community sing-
ing,—though performances by in-
dividual gifted members of the
Women’s Institute Choirs or
Dramatic Society have their place.
A Quiz or “Twenty Questions”
provides both entertainment and
education.

Neighbouring Institutes may be
invited for special performances,
and the circle of friendship is thus
enlarged or the occasion may be
made an “Open Meeting” at which
husbands, brothers and friends

In loving memory of my dear beloved
sister CLARRA MAYNARD.

One year has past since that sad day,

When the one we loved was called

away,

Her life on earth was very short,

She hadn't time to live,

But in that little space of time,

She had a lot to give.

It didn't take her long to learn

A lesson very great,

She learned that people have to love

To open Heaven's gate,

FERTILITY |'They Anchor

SAYS GOVT. CHEMIST

WHERE does the phosphate ih
the local soil come from, and does
it have any definite effect on the
quality of the local cane juice?
These are two questions which
were discussed yesterday by Mr.
J. B. D. Rebinson, Government
Aeticultural Chemist when he
lectured to members of the
Agricultural Society yesterday.

The subject of the leeture was
sa Fertility, Se eee
spoken off teehnica
trating his address with diagrams
and equations, Mr, Rebingon dealt
with the effect of nitrogen, potash,
and phosphate on the fertility of
thé soil.

He explained that nitrogen and
potash complemented each other.
Both must be put in, and not one
without the other, if the maximum
fertility was to be obtaifiéd, Phos
phate, he said, did not seem
necessary.

Major Factor

Mr. Robinson said that soil
erosion in Barbados was one of
the major factors aifecting soil
fertility. He called it something
which should be facéd up to,
whether it oecurred in the red or
black soil areas. It was not only
the few tons of soil that was
collected at the bottom of the slope
after heavy rainfall that mattered,
he added, The erosion which took
place from ridge to cahe hole was
just as serious.

Referring to the chart of a
soil survey carried out by Sir
John Saint, former Director of
Agriculture during the years
1929 to 1931, Mr. Robinson said
the méan figures represented a
certain optimum Jevel that had
been maintained In the local
soil with the system of Ccultiva-
tion and fertilizing used here.
It indicated, he said, that the
island as a whole had gone
forward considerably, and which
showed a sound basis of cane
husbandry.

Replying to a question by
Hon’ble G. D. L. Pile as to whether
the application of phosphate had
any result in improving the juice
of the cane, Mr. Robinson said
that it appeared that phosphate
on some occasions did correlate
with a better juice, but some-—
times it did not.

Set Quality

As he had said, nitrogen and
potash complemented each other
and use of both resulted in a set
juice quality. As far as he could
see at present, the use of phos-
phate did not always result in
improvement of the sucrose
content of the juice,

Mr, Robinson said he was not
jcertain where the phosphate in
the soil in Barbados came from
It could hardly be from the
coral rock, since that was low in

phosphate content. Poasibly, it
came from the voleanic dust that
settled on the islattd in the past.

was very interested in the

p hate question, and was going
to continue his experiments fe-
lative to the relation between the

application of phdsphate and the
juice quality.

SAYS LIGHTERMAN

RAIN did net hamper water-
front workers yesterday because
there was very little activity on
the Whaff. The Schooner Frances
W. Smith, which is tied off in the
Inner Basin, was taking a load of
lime for British Guiana e at
the Lower Wharf a few vendors
were buying wood from the
Schooner Bluenose Mac. A pum-
ber of seamen could be seen Clean-
ing up the Schooner Belqueen,

Lighters were being loaded with
sugar at the Inner basin while
others took puncheons of molasses
at the Lower Wharf. The majority
were loading in prepuration for the
next ship that calls here for sugar
and molasses, and as soon a8 they
were loaded, their crews placed
a tarpaulin over the contents

Prompt Loading

In an interview with the “Advo-

cate”, a iighterman said that this

method is employed so that they | Flanigan, &s8. Esso Avilla, ss. Porlys,

can begin loading the ship as
as it anchors.

On the Opposite side of the
Lower Wharf was also very
quiet, Around mid-day no one
could be seen by the Baggage
Warehouse landing and_ there
were no boats on dock although
the Motor Vessel Blue Star was
tied off in the vicinity.

Further up a number of drums
containing colas were neatly
backed away. Whenever colas is
brought by intercolonial vessels
from Trinidad it is always depos-
ited at this spot.

The only intercolonial vessel to
arrive yesterday was the Schooner
Lady Noeleen, It came from Trini-
dad and brought two passengers
and a quantity of cargo.

Cocoanuts

The cargo was made up of 3,000
loose coconuts, 15 cords of fire-
wood, 23 bunches and 20 packages
of fresh fruit. Passengers were
Josephine Nelson and Josephine
Curiel.

The 94-ton Motor Vessel Daer-
wood under Capt. DaCoteau sailed
for St. Lucia with cargo and
passengers. Both the Noeleen and
Daerwood are consigned to the
Schooner Owners’ Association.

day confirmed by Their Honours
of The Assistant Court of Appeal,
Mr. G. L. Taylor and Mr. J. W. B.
Chenery. Mr. Nurse had given
judgment to Millicent Vaughan for



£5 which she claimed from her
husband after his sheep had
damaged her young canes in

Taitts Herring Hill, on May 9,
10 and 18.

Millicent and her husband
Joseph do not live together. Mr.
C. H. Clarke appeared for Milli-
cent while Mr, W. W. Reece was
counsel for her husband.

Joseph Vaughn appealed against
the decision of the Court of
Appeal.

Millicent has land some distance
away fiom Her home and evidence
for the prosecution showed that
Joseph’s cow and three sheep
had been seen in her land grazing.

No One Saw

Mr. Reece argued that though
the sheep were seen on the land,
no one had seen Joseph Vaughn
stake them there. The mere cir-
cumstance of his being the owner
of the animals did not make him
liable. It had to be proved that
there was negligence or that the
animals had been wilfully staked
there. He said that a hole of
young canes could searcely cost
10 cents as was given in evidence.

Mr. Clarke said that it had been
proved that there used to bé a
systematic feeding of Joseph's
cattle on Millicent’s land. From
Mr. Reece’s argument nobody
would be secure from damage by
such means if the owner of cattle
carried them on one’s land at
night and was not seen,

Accept Evidence

To assess the damage, he held,
the court éithér had to go by
judicial notice or by the evidence.
Millicetit had brought evidence to
establish the worth of the shoots
and that had to be accepted since
Joseph did not bring evidence to
dispute it.

The Magistrate had made allow-
ance for all the shoots not having
been damaged to the same extent
and he felt that the judges should
not change his findings.

beat! yesterday they had disappeared

from a cupboard in the cook's
room where the maid had them.

The jewels, which included e 20
carat diamond ring and sapphire
earrings, we@re not insured, and
she had offered a reward of £160
for their ppcowesy The disappear-
ance of the D’Arjo jewellery is
one of five big recently reported
inves-
tigated by the French Police,

The two latest big robberies
involved another 16,000,000 and

Dutch Guides
To See First
Polo Game |

THIS EVENING

The last afternoon in Barbados
for the Dutch Girl Guides now
visiting our shores will be spent
watching Polo at the Garrison.
These girls have never seen a
game of Polo, and will no doubt
find it somewhat different to
Hockey and Net Ball,



—

The games on Wednesday were
divided in alternate chukkas of
Seniors and Juniors with one
Senior player on each side of
the Juniors. It was the all
senior games naturally that
caused the greatest interest, for
these were contests of ‘giants’
against ‘giants’, and it would be
difficult to say who was the most
outstanding player.

Perhaps John Marsh on Hawk might have got “top marks’.
but then Colin Deane and Colonel
Michelin were also in excellent
form. It was a pleasure to see
Major Skewes-Cox back in action
again after his accident a few
weeks ago, and although his
sprained ankle is still somewhat
painful, he could not resist taking
part in some of the chukkas even
though this meant playing without
riding boots.

One of the most spectacular
events of the evening was when
a ball was hit from the ‘eld
beyond the boards where some of

Read 2 Excellent

Books On Sport

By 0. 8S. Coppin

PLAYFAIR'’S Cricket Annual 1950 ($1.02) and “Cricketers
from the West Indies” (30c.) on sale at the Advocate
Stationery Department are two books that should at once
find their places on the bookshelves of all keen followers

of cricket.

both this week.
_ Pleyfair’s Annual is edited by
Peter West and Neville Cardus,
wlio supplies the foreword in his
ov/n inimitable style, heads the
list of an imposing array of cricket
writers,

Imposing List of Writers

Rex Alston writes about the
Yew Zealand tour to England last

year. In his article he does not
reproduce his charmingly racy
and entertaining style of the

m‘crophone but writes in a precise
and convincing manner his im-
pressions of the tour, as one who
has paid great attention to every
detail and every circumstance of
that tour,

Charles Bray has contributed
“Overseas Tours” in which he has
to mention the
picturesque grounds at Capetown,
Adelaide, Barbados, Trinidad and
Jamaica and surfbathing at Sydney
cr in the clear blue waters of the
West Indies.

Constantine Again

Constantine discusses the
chances of the West Indies in an
article “The West Indies Can Win”
but they must emphasise the
peculiarly distinctive form of West
Indian cricket.

Louis Duffus writes with rare
skill, an account of the Australia
tour to South Africa in 1949 and
pays tribute to the genius of 21-
year-old left hander, Neil Harvey
ranking him the most aggressive
and attractive left hander to visit
South Africa since Frank Woolley.

Excellent Job

Roy Webber has done an ex-
cellent job in préparing a Who’s
Who of English cricketers that
embraces almost everyone who ap-
peared in first class cricket in
England in 1949 and even some
who did not play.

Roy Webber alone has compiled
tables giving the full career
record, complete to September
30, 1949, of every player likely to
eppear in the 1950 season.

This’ includes players like
Constable, Cook, Doggart, Dollery,
Grieves, Berry, Hever, Muncer,
Pleass, Prentice, Shackleton and
many other players that performed
ereditably against the West Indies





the spectators were standing and
suddenly a hand shot out and cook
the ball in a brilliant catch.

Believe it or not, but the
catcher was Mr. S. T. Harrison
who as a 1914 Polo Player is
still very keen on the game and
seldom fails to attend the matches.
Needless to say a cheer weit up
not only for the catch whic. was
worthy of a test match cvicket
player, but because the ball may
have struck one of the children
at play on the field beyond

It is hoped that the weather
will be kind this afternoon s9 tht
he attractive visitors in uniform
may see their first game of Palo

I have been very privileged to have read them



Sir PELHAM WARNER

on this tour with whose records
we. were not quite familiar.

An interesting feature of the
Annual is the “Playfair’s Eleven
Cricketers of 1949.” These are
all caricatured and the reasons
for their selection given as well.

I found most helpful and inform-
ative the photographs and names
of the twenty-six professionals
elected to be honorary member
of the M.C.C,

W.I. Cricketers

“Cricketers from the West
Indies” is perhaps the only book
of its kind ever published about
West Indian cricket. It gives a
complete “Who’s Who” of the 1950
West Indies team to England,

Interesting Background

Pat Landsburg in an article
“Background to the tour” gives a
short history of West Indies
cricket ranging from 1895 when
Slade Lucas brought the first
English team to the West Indies,
through 1928 when they were first
given Test match status, past
1930-31 when they toured Australia
for the first and only time up to
now, straight on to the India tour
of 1948-49.

The records of previous West
Indies tours to England—1906-1939
are cleverly set out to be found
at a glance.

Tribute to H. C.

Sir Pelham Warner has written
the foreword and has taken the
opportunity to pay a tribute to
Harrison College. He writes:—
“Whatever success I may have at-
tained at cricket was largely due to
my earliest lessons at Harrison Col-
lege, Barbados, a school, which
considering its size and the com-
paratively short time it has been
in existence, has produced as
many good cricketers as almost
any other school.”

cess, write a columnist
“wWWwews Chronicle.” He quotes
siaro.d Grannum, Trinidad-born
varrister, on this game: “Every
schoolboy plays it at break-time
cr odd moments. Someone tnrows
u& cricket bat into the air and
inere’s a scrum for it. Lucky
chap who gets the bat is then
bowved to, and his sole object
is to hit the ball. There’s no
wicket, no runs, but as soon as
le misses the ball he’s out and
}as to pass the bat to the bowler”.

Grannum believes this business
of hitting the ball is very import-
unt. He says it gives lads a keen
eye and produces a_ spirit of
attack. Over here children con-
centrate too much on defend ng
the wicket—even if its only a
dustbin or chalk marks on the
wall. They’d do better to learn
to hit the ball.” It sounds con-
vineing. —L.E.S.

PRIZE CROSSWORD

West Indies Play |
Gloucestershire To-day |

Today the West Indies engage
Gloucestershire in the twenty sev-
enth game of their tour, at Chel-
tenham, and the county which
gave English cricket its Walter
Hammond can be relied upon tc
give the visitors a good game.
There have always been stout-
hearted, and clever players at
Gioucestershire of the ilk of Tom
Geddard, Crapp and Emmett, ano
theif T. W. Graveney was at the
Opening of the present season
mentioned as “one of the young
men” to watch,

So with the “tumult and the
shouting” of Test matches wel
behind them, and after two days
of well earned rest the West
Indies will enter today’s game
prepared to uphold the name they
have made for themselves.

The tour near its close, and the
skipper will perhaps, give all
members of the team full oppor-

tunity without endangering the
the all-round strength of his
combination . Pierre, Williams,

Marshall, Trestrail, may turn out

LONDON, August 18.
Ramadhin is a Hindu but speaks

Ghin”, only out of his teens in May

When young Ramadhin strikes
a deadly patch he is “practically
unplayable”. This diminutive spin
howler who turns the. ball either
way is the first Indian to represent
the West Indies. He was selected
for the West Indies tour after
playing in only one Intercolonial
‘Tournament.—Reuter.

Ramadhin For
India Tour

LONDON, Aug. 18.

Sonny Ramadhin, 20-year-old
West Indies spin bowler who with
Alf Valentine played a big part
in England’s defeat in the Test
series, has accepted an invitation

Commonwealth cricket team.

Frankie Worrell, another mem-
ter of the victorious West Indies
side, will also accompany the
Commonwealth party when it
sails on September 15 He will be

invited to join the tour “but had
not yet made up his mind’’.

Ltd I Saturday, AuguM is. is:ii % on lli II.IMI THE i-eccni Intarchange tA bodies of young people from tin islands in the West Ii i a hopo ful sign. During tha Woh .1 party of Scouts from Grenada return* u home, tlM Youthful Printers of Trinidad have m->t concluded a victorious tour of this island, and the girls of th Bishop Anstey 'a High School of Trinidad also paid a visit here. Meantime a party of Barbados Scouts are still in St. Vincent. The visits throughout the area ol groups of young people afford just thai education which is necessary u. (otter ;. truly Waal Indian outlook. It has the added advantage that while they are still young and able to move around more easily and less expensively they will have the opportunity to learn much more than at the stage where business and other considerations affect the length of their stay. In the past then.' have been visits by school boys of the secondary and first grade schools. It is true that the war years were unsuitable and these visits have not yet returned to the normal fixture card. There is however no reason why such lnlerI colonial visits should be limited to boys of the better schools. There are other groups such as scouts, youth organisations, sports clubs, and others who could with similar advantage organise such visits But these should not be limited to Trinidad. British Ouiana, Grenada, Si Vincent and Barbados. The other islands of the Windward and thote of thtM-wward Islands might well be encouraged to undertake similar visits and groups from the bigger colonies might well make it a point to interchange with them. It is from visits such as these that the young people of one island will learn at first hand about people 111 different islands and so understand what are the problems and ad* vantages of the area as a whole. With the West Indies headed towards federation, whatever the rate of progress, it is at least the pursuit of an ideal that the people who Uv i" the area should know more of each other and the conditions %  under which they work and live. Travel amongst the young is the best form of education. It deserves greater assistance in the Caribbean from steamship Companies than it gets. Summer Visitors THE delay in temporarily closing Seawell airport to heavy traffic has been fortunate for the development of tourism between Venezuela and Barbados. With the true caution of the real optimists, Mr. Fred Goddard and Mr. Jean Iversen, who visited Venezuela in May to introduce the summer package lours between Venezuela and Barbados were not certain on their return that the good effects of their trip would be noticed this year. The event has proved their caution to have been too conservative. In fact figures for tourists brought to Barbados during the last three months show how successful has been their attempt to encourage Venezuelan tourists to come to Barbados. According to records of British West Indian Airways, that company's planes brought ninety passengers from Venezuela to Barbados in June. In July the number was doubled and 1(10 passengers (lew in. Already 150 passengers have arrived tins month and there are reservations for 125 more. August will have produced 275 guests. Among the nine hotels who have offered package tours to Venezuelans there are 365 rooms available. The season has not ended. The package tours operate until October 31. But it can already be seen that the Venezuelans want to come to Barbados u-rin,; the summer 'season. V Next year it is almost safe to predict that more hotel accommodation will hi' needed in the summer months as 11 is now urgently needed during the winter season. There is news too of the possibility of more Americans coming down from Puerto Rico. Tourism is the only industry which will ever approximate to sugar as a large employer of labour and u is one of the easiest ways to earn hard currency for a sterling area which is still anxious to woo dollars. The enterprise r>r those responsible for the hotel industry in Barbados is welcome. There is much leeway ;. bo made up but a start has been made. Itefire? Never!

A West Indies Symphony Orchestra capable of performing .successfully in any part of the world has long been the dream ol Rudolph Dunbar. This year the famous British Guiana-bom clarinetist, composer and conductor hopes to see his i;ream take shape In Novemt>er or earty Decemlcr he returns (o (he West Indies for the first time In 20 years to conduct and to give a series of rental* in all the islands Whlloi he Is there he will seek local support for hi* scheme. %  I have long thought that the West Indies should have such an he told me this week "With Federation coming, it would be a ueal cultural achievement for (he area. Canada. AurIralia, New Zealand and South Africa nil have their Symphony Orchestras and there is no reason why the West Indies should not follow suit "West Indians are endowed with colossal amount of musical talent and I am certain that it an Orchestra could be formed, it would be co.ual to any In the world. There arc in the West liidtes to-da> players, who. although limy h.ive never had an opportunity to leave their own irtand and |aln European back6 rounn. are equal to any In the rastern Hemisphere." Dunbai himself will spend considerable time during his tour talent-spotting. If he sees or hears any promising young musicians he will encourage them and pass on whatever knowledge he ( an from his own experience He himself has come a long way %  Mice (he day In 1920 when, na a bov of IP. he left British Guiana to study music in the United States His ambition at that time was to become a famous conoert pianist. But after several years of study he decided to give up tbS idea and loam instead the clarinet. To pay for his studies he accepted a wide variety of parttime jobs, appearing some nights in vaudevitla and others in night clubs. In 1931, he went to France where he continued his studies ;• %  the Paris Conservatoire or Music and from there travelled ci to Germany and Austria, all (he time learning something moro about music. Recognition did not come easily and In Europe he had to continue doing part-time Jobs, one of which was conducting a choir. All these experiences, however, served to broaden his knowledge and finally in 1938. he began to see the first fruits of his efforts The previous year he had writ ten a special ballet ci/itlcd "The Dance of the Hist Century" for (he Cambridge May Week This brllet was introduced into the United States and achieved such a success that the National Broadeasting Company arranged a roastto-coasi "hook-Up," with Dunbar himself conducting To quote his own words "That put me on the map. The Americans began to see that I had something original and different to say and 1 knew at last that I had begun to establish myself". But all the while the shadow of a new world war WAS casting llsctf over Europe, and Dunbar. anxious lo play his part returned to England in 1939 He joined the Ministry jf Information and was with them until D-Day. when he went in France as the Correspondent of the Associated Negro Press of America. During his spell at the Ministry I'p found time (J give a scr..*j of lectures throiuthout the country explaining the influence the Negro has had upon music In 1942. he achieved one of hi.' major personal triumphs when invited to conduct the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Albert Hall. That was a proud moment for him. But the war was f; si gaining momentum and u-o much time could not ho spaied for music. Dunbar had to wilt until the liberation of Paris before he again wielded a baton and then r invited lo become the first foieign tonductor to lead the PSdcsle Sinynhony Orchestra after the German occupation. He was a great success and as result offers to conduct eUvewhc began to flood In. After the Oernian surrender, he conducted the famous Berlin Philharmonic and (hen returned to Paris to take part In the Festival of Contemporary American Music, which was hailed as lh> greatest musical achievement in the history of Paris. Tours of all the main European countries followed md Dunbar found himself on the crest of the wave. To-day he is still greatly in demand In all the capitals of Europe. and he ha* two engagements lo fulfil before he can embark on hii visit to the Caribbean. He is determined that the tlinthas come lo place the West Indies on the music map of the world and to make the area famous for more than its Calypsoes. TARGETS IN KOREA WASHINGTON. How much of Nor in Korea's industry is of nul.tary importance ? At Urst glance Ihe information appears fragmentary, but there is ample evidence that U S. strategic bombers have a wide variety ol prune targets for continuing heavy air strikes. Modern industrial plants .alued a( nearly a billion dollars, including huge installations capable of manufacturing explosives, were built in North Korea by the Japanese before World War li. notes the National Geographic Society. The Korean Bads; have revealed few details about lha postwr pioductivity of these industries, which were wrested from the Japanese m 19*3 by the occupying Russian forces. However, this much is known The North has more than SO per cent of all Korean heavy industry, including steel mills, iron foundi lea, refineries, chemical works, coal and ore mines, factories for farm machinery, and a few plants for m.'tal processing and machine loots. The bulk of this industry is concentrated in five vital centres located at Sinuiju, in the extreme northwest; in the vicinity of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, and at Wonsan. Hungnam .and Chongjin on the east coast. All of these industrial areas were badly crip* pled by Japanese sabotage before Nippon's surren*r in 1945. Nineteen key plants were reported completely wrecked, and at least 47 others were severely damaged. But official reports of recent B-29 bomb %  trikea indicate the North Koreans may have been more successful in rehabilitating their industry during recent years than many civilian experts believed possible. For instance air reconnaissance of Hungnam since tin.Korean conflict's start has indicated that tremendous chemical factories there were back in operation, although they had been among the plants sabotaged. A dozen main buildings were observed some of them 1,200 feet in length, as well as eight railway sidings, two large electric transformer yards, and a complete modern harbour. The buildings, originally designed for the production of fertilizers and the processing of light ores, had turned out large quantities of explosives for the Japanese and were being used for the same purpose by the North Koreans, according to the Air Force. The plants at IIngnam. oil renncnes at Wonsan, I and ihe large Japanese-built arsenal at Pyongyang have been reported severely hit by B-39's and other | urcraft in the United Nations forces. What other strategic industrial targets may n North Korea's 48,468 square miles of territory ? On the basis of compilations of prewar data, herel a few certain to occupy the attention of Air staff | officers: The neighbouring "tri-towns" of Pyongyang, Chinnampo, and Kyomipo have outlying industrial I areas devoted to coal, farm machinery, machine tools. Iron and steel, glass and other products. The: Japanese are reported to have built an airplane! bly plant near Pyongyang, but there Is no! record of production during World War II. They I also erected in the vicinity of the capital a production plant for absolute alcohol, on essential In the manufacture of explosives. Chongjin nnd Songjin, east cuut ports, are similar In their economies as well as their names. Both were steel manufacturing centers under the Japanese, who installed electric furnaces. There Is evl-| dence of considerable development In recent years at Songjin. which lies on the edge of a fertile agriultural region and is believed to have large planking mills for lumber. Between these two cilies lies the town of Yongsn, here the Japanese erected a synthetic oil plant with a reputed capacity of 50,000 tons. It employed i new process for the liquefaction of anthracite. A jmilar plant was built at Aoji. little town on the, brief 10-miIes border shored by Korea and Russia. This border area is only 60 miles from the Soviet port of Vladivostok. Civilian experts generally agree that the military apaclty of North Korean industry wis purposely restricted under Japanese occupation. There were few fabricating plants for heavy metals, and the economy generally was geared to supply Japan with raw materials and semi-finished goods. However, observers point out that some of these deficiencies may have been overcome. North Koreans claimed 822 factories in operation as early as 1847. In some respects Korea has one of the largest industrial potentials In the Orient. It. deposits of coal, iron, and many other minerals are substantial -and most are north of the 38th parallel. Similarly, the North has B0 per cent of the electric power capacity, which as far back as 1943 amounted to well over a million kilowatts. The sources of most of this power stems from a number of modern dams built by the Japanese on the Yalu River, which forms the little-known border between North Korea and Manchuria. —(l.N.S.) Our Headers Stay: Public rtilitie* To, The Editor, The Adoocale, SIR. Judging by your leading article it is proposed that monopoly public utility companies should be placed under three Comi. i ^loiiii iiomimiU'd I v Hie fio\ ernor for the term of five rears, who would have power to review their operation and to -evise their charges, whether fixed by private contract or by statute, and to this ,'iui to make investigations and to obtain all Information and advice that they deem expedient, the costs and expenses being levied on these companies. This Is strong medicine and. before taking it. consideration Is needed to make suro that the cure Is not worse than the disease. To take the last point first, it must not be overlooked that It is the customers of these companies who provide the money out of which ihp companies pay (heir expenses. Any considerable increase In thj • expenses is likely to lead to higher charges. When the customei n-allze that it i^ they who will pa for the Commissioners and Ihclr activities, entfauslssn may wane. Costwould need to be counted carefully and possible benefit estimated. I am not attracted by the proposed power to revise private contracts. As I think, commercial health depends on confidence thai what a man prot'ilacs that he will perform. This xinfldcnce Is an essential factor In even the most ordinary every day Iran Anvthing that tends lo undermine my be! r, hurtful to the community. Th> law has protected the youn and the weak hut saiidultl should be expected to fulfil their obligations The proposal '. at the Comml*Itould i empowered to laalalai n U surprising Bureiy ihe Leejbl lura u and must .'hority. If amendment is needed, it is for the Lagulatura to anaet it. The Legislature must not abdicate. Though, as It seems to me, the proposal Is too drastic, the appointment of Commissioners may well he useful both to the Public and to the Companies. If the Commissioners were empowered to receive and to investigate iriniiihiints. reporting their findings both to ihe House of Assembly and to the Legislative Council, the report being also published in the Press. It would, 1 believe, be beneficial all round. Indeed the fact of Ihe Commissioners' existence would tend to prevent acrimony. They should be entitled to deal with the costs of their enquiry as they may think Just. if the Commissioners' duty were lo investigate and report no appeal would be necessary, for the Legislature would act as might be Just. But if they had power to enforce their views, then I certainly agree with you that there should be full rights of appeal to the Courts of Justice. The Commissioners themselves would, I suppose, be men of standing in the cummuulty. unbiassed (In a relatively smal' place this may be a difficulty) and of unquestioned probity. It would be well if they agreed to serve from a sense of public duty and without pay. Such positions should be held for honour, and not be looked on as rewards for this or that. It would btunfortunate if these ompiinles' customers came to ihlnk that the charges they paid were loaded to provide "Jobs for the boys."

QUEBEC, Aug. 18

Archbishop Maurice Roy of
Quebec has cescribed as a ‘ground-
less rumour’ the report that the
College of Cardinals and several
organisations of the Roman Cath-

would move here in case of a
third World War.

The report originating in Wash-

Archbishop Roy said last
night that the Church authorities
had never heard such a project.

Pilgrim who occupied a room |
on the fourth floor was busy |
working when he heard shouts of
fire. He rushed down two flights
of stairs to the dining saloon
where he was met by a volume |
of smoke rising from the hotel's
only exit.

In great confusion he reached
window ana leaped clear over |
the rising fire out into the crowd-
ed street where luckily three men |
broke his fall. He escaped with
slight bruises and shock.

The spectators declared that it
was the mo! spectacular jump
by a slim athletic figure.

Also making his escape was
DeSilva another travelling sales-
man from Harold Proverbs Ltd,,
Barbados, who jumped from the
third storey straight on to the
street obtaining a fractured right
leg,

The City Fire Brigade ran into
action with strong pressure focuss-
ed on the new Esso Service Sta-
tion obliquely opposite as the
crimson! flames rose to the sky |
with bellowing clouds of smoke
circling higher and higher. In 25
minutes the hotel was complete-
ly gutted.

Spreads to Bakery

The fire spread to an adjoining
bakery, the largest and most up-
to-date in the island owned by
S. R. Mendes & Co, Fire equip-
ment froma former U.S, base
and Antigua Sugar factory joined
in the scene of action and two
pumps came into action from the
sea.

The fire tore its way ‘to: the
large original family residence of
the Mendes family.. Fighters are
{still hard at work with the fire
j till hovering around ‘the three
| oakery chimneys standing erect
j!ike beacons amidst the grim sur-
}rounding ruin. Part of the
Mendes offices was destroyed but
\the Antigua Distillery, Electric
{Company and Esso building are
untouched as a _ result of the
supreme effort of the Fire Brigade
under the command of Col.
J. R. A. Branch. Tonight finds
the whole of St. John’s in complete
darkness with everybody in a
desperate search for candles.

Higher Wages
Or We Strike

SAY FINNS

HELSINKI, Aug. 17.

e Finnish Parliament was to-
lay summoned for next Thurs-
day——cutting its summer recess by
nearly two weeks—to det ate the
“higher wages or we strike” ulti-
matum from key trade unions
Agrarian Premier U. Keykonen
ordered the recall after consulta-
tions with President Juho Paasi-
kivi and an extraordinary Cabinet
meeting last night.

The unions are demanding wage
increases up to 50 per cent, des-
pite a pegged wages agreement
with employers last April. Under
this agreement made under the
threat of a general strike, wages
were increased by 15 per cent. all
round, and then pegged to the cost
of living index to rise only with
prices. If granted the increases
now demanded will force up Ythe
price of metal goods which Fin-
land must sell to Russia at “cur-
rent world prices” under their
new trade agreement.—Reuter.

Germans Want
Their Honour
Restored

HAMBURG, Aug 18.
Former German Army Officers
said today that they wanted their |
honour “publicly restored,” before
they considered taking part in
West European defence.

For five years they declared
that German Army Oificers and
men suffered discrimination and
slander. The demand was made
through their organisation Bruder-
schaft in a bulletin publishea
here. Germany, the bulletin said
bad conducted fewer wars than
England or France since 1813, and
“we do not wish to dwell on the
old story of how German soldiers
from recruits to generals have
been treated in prison camps and
at individual or collective trials.”
Most members of Bruderschaft are
former German Staff Officers, who
still maintain a “Planning Staff”

A big surprise was in store for
Mrs. John Goddard, wife of the
West Indies Captain. She accom-
panied her husband to the Tele-
phone Exchange, but had not ex-
pected to be able to speak. Then
to her surprise she found the Post
Office authorities, after last min-
ute efforts, had included her in the
party, and she was able to talk to
her small daughters in Barbados.

Didn’t Know Which

The reception was not perfect
and Mrs. Goddard was so excited
that she said afterwards she did
not know which one of her daugh-
ters she had spoken to.

Shortly afterwards the team left
for Cheltenham for the match with
Gloucester.

Goddard and Prior Jones did not
travel with the party, as they are
staying in London dnd hope to-
morrow to see Tottenham-Black-
pool soccer match—first of the new

RESIGNS

ATHENS, Aug. 18,

King Paul tonight accepted the
resignation of General Nicholag
Plastiras’ Coalition Government,
from which seven Liberal Minis
ters resigned yesterday.

The King sent for the Liberal
leader Sophocles Venizelos. Un-
confirmed reports said the Liberal
leader was planning to form a new
Government with a parliamen-
tary majority. The Liberals re-
signed after General Plastiras had
charged that other parties were!
hindering his policy of “leniency”

Of Belgian Communists

BRUSSELS, Aug. 18.

Belgian Communist Party
leader Julien Lahaut was assas-
sinated at his house at Searing
near Liege tonight

Lahaut, who was a member of
the Chamber of Deputies, was
killed by two men. His attackers
drove up to his home in Liege
province, Eastern Belgium, in a
car.

A former coal miner, M
Lahaut had been President of the
Belgium Communist Party for
five He was 65. He wa
elected to the Chamber of Rep-
resentatives in 1932. He w:

He took a prominent part in

the early post-war discussions
on the return of exilei King
Leopold, During the ceremony in
which Prince Baudouin was
sworn in as Chief of State last
week after the King’s “efface-
ment”, Lahaut interrupted the

proceedings with shouts of “vive
la Republique”.

Lahaut was shot in his shirt
sleeves at the door of his house
as he answered the knocks of
two men, Their car was left with
engine running, Four shots were

fired. One hit Lahaut in the
head, three in the body. The two
men rushed te their car and
escaped

Lahaut called for the abdica-

tion of King Leopold as early as
July 1945, On August 12 a bomb
blasted the Communist Party
headquarters in central Brussels,
Demand for a““popular republic”
is one of the main planks of the
party programme.

In 1945 Lahaut was defeated
in a parliamentary vote for the
Presidency of the Chamber of
Deputies. Four Communist Min-
isters immediately resigned from
the Coalition Government in
protest, They returned next day

R. GEOFFREY DE FREITAS,
Home Officer Under-Secre-
tary, is mentioned by one Lon-
don newspaper as a possible suc-
cessor to Mr, Bevin. Mr, de-
Freitas, who has relatives here,
is one of the delegates to the
Council of Europe at Strasbourg
and has previously attended the
United Nations Assembly, This
experience alone, however is
hardly likely to qualify him for
the Foreign Secretaryship. There
are several others who, on this

score, might fit the bill, .
Next week Mr, de_ Freitas
leaves for a tour of Amerir-,
where he lectures at Chicago
University and to a trade union
summer school. He will also give
a semes of talks on behalf of the
British Information Service in
Washington. And while on the
other side of the Atlantic, he will
probably take the opportunity to
exchange, at Government level,
views on civil defence, Civil de-
fence is Mr. de Freitas’s particu-
lar province at the Home Office.

S scene of a quiet wedding on oe

Tuesday afternoon, when Mr, Ivay
Burrowes was marriéd to Miss
Hazel Moe of Martindales Road,
and one of the singers in the Paul!
Wilkin’s Programme, which is
heard over Radio Distribution.

The bride, who was given ii
marriage by her brother, wore «
dress of white figured georgette,
while her headdress was kept in
place by a wreath of lime blos-
soms. Her bouquet was of tube
roses and anthurium lilies,

Miss Millicent Lynch, was Maid
of Honour, while Mr. William Bur-
rows, uncle of the Bridegroom was
the Bestman.

The ceremony, which was fully
choral was performed by the Act-
ing Vicar, Rev. Alleyne and the
Reception was held at the home of
Mr. and Mrs, L. Lynch of Deacons
Road.

Snakes Alive!

MAN with a strange hobb,

is Mr. L. U., Cross, member
of the Trinidad team that shot
at Bisley last month. He collects
poisonous snakes, and has a large
collection at home, including a
bush master and a fer de lance.
While at Bisley, Cross was de-
lighted to capture, with a forked
stick, an adder that was lurking
in some gorse bushes. For week«
afterwards he could be seen in
public parks digging up worms
for his pet to eat. Eventually,
however he found this too much
trouble, su he has lodged it at the
London zco till he returns to
Trinidad. Last week Mr. Cross
went to Whipsnade to have a look
at another collection of reptiles.
Whipsnade is a large open afr
zoo in Berkshire where animals—
though not, of course, snakee—are
allowed plenty of freedom.

It is only recently that Mr.

slavery allegations in the Middle

Executive Council, to commute
the statutory sentence of death
pronounced upon James Samuel
Rock for the murder of his wife.
Cecilia Joyce Rock to penal
servitude for life.
Rock, a native of St. Vincent
was sentenced to death last month
for the murder of his St. Vincent
born wife, whose throat was cut
with a penknife, last March. When
Prisons Superintendent Sam Baker
conveyed the news to him, he was
beyond words, and some minutes
elapsed before he found his voice
to shower thanks on his Counsel
Mr. C. E. R. Debidin, whose
petition for the commutation of
the death sentence has brought
him a new lease of life.

Another Life

“You've saved my life; you've
given me another life,” Rock told
his lawyer. “My only thought
when the Prison Chief came io
me was that I was starting out on
my last walk.” He almost collapsed
when he was told he was not to
die, and repeatedly asked if he





His trial before Mr. Justice
Ward, lasted four days. From then
on he had been waiting for what
seemed the inevitable, although
“deep down imside” he said he
felt “something would happen.”

Rock told reporters that he was
convinced prayer accomplished his
deliverance from the gallows.
“Ever since I was condemned I had
been praying, I never stopped
reading the Bible. My prayers
were for myself and my lawyer.
I prayed that Mr. Debidin receive
the courage and strength to carry
on the fight for me.”

In his petition Mr. Debidin who
was instructed by his Solicitor-
Politician brother, Hon. D. P.
Debidin during the trial, urged
among other things that the cir—
cumstances of the case pointed
more to suicide than homicide,



Jamaica Wants
_ Banana Contract

(From Our Own Correspondent)

KINGSTON,

A long-term contract for the
purchase of Jamaica bananas and
the price arrangement for 1951
are among matters to be dis-
cussed at negotiations which are
scheduled to take place. within
the next month or so in England
between the Ministry of Food ana
a delegation from Jamaica.

The delegation will represent
both the Government of Jamaica
and the all-Island Banana Grow-
ers Association and as on pre-
vious oceasions will consist of
Mr. D, C. Ferguson, Commisioner
of Commerce and Industries, Mr.
R. F. Williams, Chairman of the
Association, the Hon. Rudolph
Burke, President of the Jamaica
Agricultural Society, and Mr.
Clifford deLisser, a member of
the Association’s executive.

The present contract with the
Ministry of Food expires in 1952.







now 645 families settled.

The land is allotted in blocks of
from 3 to 15 acres in accordance
with the size and the ability of the
family to cultivate.
holding is 7 acres per family for
the cultivation of rice amd ground
provisions. Land is also provided
for settlers’ dairy cattle, dry cows,
steers and vearlings and settlers
are encouraged to engage i ani-
mal husbandry

Mr. Laing’s repor: aiso records
an overall increase ip the collec-
tion of rates by the Village and
Country Districts in (949 as com-
pared with , collections during
1948,

The aciual per cent of tates-col-
lected during 1949, was 83.9 per
cent as against 77 per cent, in
1948.

Unique Sysiem

Government holds that the Co!-
ony’s Local Government system
which is unique in the British
Colonial Empire provides a good
rolitice1 and administrative educa-
tion for the rural population of
the Colony, and it has been the
policy to encourage what are called
Country Districts where Gouncil-
lors are nominated by Government,
to apply for what is called Village
Status which enables registered
voters of a district to elect two-
thirds of the members of their
Village Council and the Council to
elect its Chairman.

The coastlands of British Gui-
ana, for the administration of
which the Commissioner of Local
Government is responsible, are

divided into five administrative
districts, each under a _ District
Commissioner.

Revenue Up

In the five districts, revenue to-
talling $1,194,322 was collected
during 1949, under the various
heads of Colony Revenue( main
source——-Excise and Licences).
This represents an increase of
$141,846 over the collection for
1948.

There are at present 33 Village
Districts and 57 Country Districts.
Under tte Local Government Or-
dinance, Village Authorities are
entrusted with the management of
the administrative and financial
business of the village and with its
government generally, and they
are expected to shoulder the re-
sponsibilities which accompany
these powers, ;

In addition to his substantive
duties, the Commissioner of Local
Government is the Social Welfare
Officer and is responsible for the
administration of Land Settlement
Schemes. He also has administra-
tive charge of the Prisons, Re-
formative Systems (Approved
Schools for Boys and Girls and
Probation), and Social Assistance,
and performs the statutory duties
of the Immigration Agent General.

Interest Increases

His report to Government shows
that increasing interest in the
Social Welfare Schemés is being
displayed by the community. No
less than 24 applications have been
received for assistance in the form
of grants from Colonial Develop-
ment and Welfare Funds to meet

Jamaica
Delegates To
Visit U.S.A.

(From Our Own Correspondent)

KINGSTON
A Jamaica Government delega-
tion is shortly to visit the United
States to confer with the United
States Labour Placement Com-
mittee on the further large scale

recruitment of Jamaican farm
workers for U.S. farms

Members of the delegation are
expected to be the Hon. W. A.

Bustamante, Mrs. Rose Leon, sole
woman member (Jamaica Labour
Party) of the House of Represent-
atives, and Labour Adviser, Mr.
G. H. Scott.

One of the reasons for the pro-
posed mission is the increasing
unemployment in the island and
another is a countering of the

workers propaganda in the United ruled that no men of under 21;Gandhi broke at the end of the

recent anti-West Indian farm
States.
Recently the, Government sent

out feelers in official Washington
circles on this subject and the
delegation is to be a follow-up.



Air Survey Of B.G.

Forests Starts Soon

(From Our Own Correspondent)
GEORGETOWN
An aerial survey of more than
20,000 square miles of the forests
ot British Guiana will begin short-
ly. Mr, B..A. Hood of Air Survey

Tuesday, said that two C-47 planes
will be flying direct from London,
and are scheduled to be here mid

50 per cent of the cost of building | survey of over 20,000 square miles

community centres. The communi-
ties who will enjoy the benefits of
these centres are required to fin-
ance the remaining 50 per cent of
the cost. This may be in the form
of cash or ‘abour. Two community
centres were opened during 1949
and five were under construction
at the end of the year. Assistance
has also been given for the erec-
tion of seven other centres and
preliminary work in draining and
preparing the sites was in progress,
The remaining 10 applications are
receiving consideration for assist-
ance from local funds as the

Some work in the same connectiou
has already been done in the
Colony, by Aero Survey Ltd., of
Vancouver, Canada, a subsidiary
of Air Survey of London, but had
to be suspended temporarily due
to weather conditions.

The two survey planes due next
week will be coming with full
photographic equipment and crews,
and will fly direct from London
The party expects to remain in
the Colony for about three months,
depending largely on weather
conditions.

Youth Travel

THE yecent interchange of visits by
bodies of young people from the various
islands in the West Indies is indeed a hope-

,ful sign. During the week a party of
Scouts from Grenada returned home, the
Youthful Printers of Trinidad have just
| concluded a victorious tour of this island,

‘and the girls of the Bishop Anstey’s High
School of Trinidad also paid a visit here.
Meantime a party of Barbados Scouts are
still in St. Vincent.





The visits throughout the area of groups
of young people afford just that education
which is necessary tu foster a truly West
Indian outlook. It has the added advantage
that while they are still young and able to

'MOve around more easily and less expen-
‘sively they will have the opportunity to
learn much more than at the stage where
business and other considerations affect
the length of their stay.
| In the past there have been visits by
school boys of the secondary and first grade
schools. It is true that the war years were
) unsuitable and these visits have not yet
| returned to the normal fixture card. There
|is however no reason why such inter-
; colonial visits should be limited to boys of
' the better schools. There are other groups
such as scouts, youth organisations, sports
; ¢lubs, and others who could with similar
advantage organise such visits.

' But these should not be

Trinidad, British Guiana, Grenada, St.
\ Vincent and Barbados. The other islands
, of the Windward and those of the Leeward
| Islands might well be encouraged to under-

take similar visits and groups from the
| bigger colonies might well make it a point
_ to interchange with them, It is from visits
; such as these that the young people of one
, island will learn at first hand about
people in different islands and so under-
stand what are the problems and ad-
| vantages of the area as a whole.

limited to

With the West Indies headed towards
federation, whatever the rate of progress,
it is at least the pursuit of an ideal that the
people who live in the area should know
more of each other and the conditions
under which they work and live.

Travel amongst the young is the best
form of education. It deserves greater
assistance in the Caribbean from steamship
Companies than it gets.

Summer Visitors

THE delay in temporarily closing Sea-
well airport to heavy traffic has been for-
tunate for the development of tourism
between Venezuela and Barbados,

With the true caution of the real
optimists, Mr. Fred Goddard and Mr. Jean
| Iversen, who visited Venezuela in May to
‘introduce the summer package tours be-
tween Venezuela and Barbados were not
| certain on their return that the good effects
| of their trip would be noticed this year.

! The event has proved their caution to
| have been. too conservative.

' In fact figures for tourists brought to
‘Barbados during the last three months
show how successful has been their attempt
to encourage Venezuelan tourists to come
to Barbados.

| According to records of British West
| Indian Airways, that company’s planes
, brought ninety passengers from Venezuela
, to Barbados in June. In July the number
| was doubled and 180 passengers flew in.

\

Already 150 passengers have arrived this

‘month and there are reservations for 125
|More. August will have produced 275
| guests.

| Among the nine hotels who have offered
| package tours to Venezuelans there are
| 365 rooms available.

| The season has not ended. The package
, tours operate until October 31. But it can
‘ already be seen that the Venezuelans want
‘to come to Barbados during the summer
* season.

‘\ Next year it is almost safe to predict that
more hotel accommodation will be needed
‘in the summer months as it is now urgently
needed during the winter season.

| There is news too of the possibility of

| more Americans coming down from Puerto

| Rico.

Tourism is the only industry which will
ever approximate to sugar as a large
‘employer of labour and it is one of the
| easiest ways to earn hard currency for a
sterling area which is still anxious to
woo dollars.

The enterprise of those responsible for
the hotel industry in Barbados is welcome.
There is much leeway to be made up but a
start has been made.





lGeorge Robey. 80. says:

IN the large drawing-room of
a flat overlooking Buckingham
Palace a ruddy-cheeked, white-
| haired. man who has amusea
| millions Sat amusing himself—
doing a jig-saw puzzle. George
Robey—81 in September—had a
week “off”; and time, he found
was hanging 4. little heavily on
his hands,



For Robey, even in this autumu
of his life; doesn’t have so many
off-weeks, and, when he does,
confesses that he feels rather
lost. It is difficult to acquire a
taste for leisure after being
Britain’s national funmaker for
well over half a century,

That is why the fashionable
first-night audience for Mister
Roberts gazed curiously at the
now rather frail-looking figure
who sat quietly in a box with
his wife.

STILL TOURING

GEORGE ROBEY is still

too



busy on the performing side of
the footlights to watch many
shows.

When he is not taking part in
the touring revue presented by
Mrs, Robey — Blanche Littler—
Robey is in demand for speqjal
functions. (A fortnight ago he
opened a Conservative féte in
Brighton before 15,000 people.)

“What amuses me is_ the
number of times I’m asked to do
charity shows for old people, he
remarked.” “I look around my
audience, most of them younger
than I am—and wonder if they
shouldn’t be entertaining me!”

“Well, what is your retiring
date?” I asked Robey.

“Never—you’re not going to
see me retire!” he retorted, with
a flash of the Robey bulldog
spirit,

COLLAR AND WIG

ROBEY is unhappy, his wife
confided to me, unless he can
still put on his wig, his grease-
paint and his clergyman’s collar
—and smell the atmosphere of a

violin hobby is a thing of the
past—although he still keeps his
violins—and I can’t get him to

So, on these idle days, the
comedian who has become part
of Britain’s theatrical history
feeds the ducks in St, James's
Park, does his jig-saw puzzles,
and sketches, on the backs of
torn-up postcards, those auto-
graphed caricatures of himseli
—of which he has given tens of
thousands away during the past
twenty years.

Or just gazes contentedly
around the walls at countless

parts of the world. (Occupying

Shakespearean role—which was

(From Our London Correspondent.)
LONDON.

A West Indies Symphony Or-
chestra capable of performing
successfully in any part of the
world has long been the dream
of Rudolph Dunbar.

This year the famous British
Guiana-born clarinetist, composer
and conductor hopes to see his
dream take shape.

In November or early December
he returns to the West Indies for
the first time in 20 years to con-
duct and to give a series of re-
citals in all the islands, While
he is there he will seek local sup-
port for his scheme.

“T have long thought that the
West Indies should have such an
Orchestra” he told me this week.
“With Federation coming, it
would be a great cultural achieve-
ment for the area, Canada, Aus-
tralia, New Zealand and South
Africa all have their Symphony
Orchestras and there is no reasor
why the West Indies should not
follow suit, i

“West Indians are endowed with
a colossal amount of musical
talent and | am certain that if an
Orchestra could be formed, it
would be equal to any in the
world. There are in the West
Indies to-day players, who, al-
though they have never had an
opportunity to leave their own
jsiand and gain European back-
ground, are equal to any in the
Western Hemisphere.”

Dunbar himself will spend con~
siderable time during his tour
talent-spotting. If he sees or
hears any promising young musi-
cians he will encourage them and
pass on whatever knowledge he
can from his own experience.

He himself has come a long way
since the day in 1920 when, as
a boy of 10, he left British Gui-

ana to study music in the United
States.

His ambition at that time was
to become a famous coneert
pianist. But after several years
of study he decided to give up
the idea and learn instead the
clarinet.

To pay for his studies he ac-
cepted a wide variety of part-
time jobs, appearing some nights
in vaudeville and others in night
clubs,

In 1931, he went to France
where he continued his studies
at the Paris Conservatoire ot
Music and from there travelled
on to Germany and Austria, all
the time learning something more
about music.

Recognition did not come easily
and in Europe he had to continue
doing part-time jobs, one of which
was conducting a choir.

All these experiences, how-
ever, served to
knowledge and finally in 1938, he
began to see the first fruits of
his efforts. ;

The previous year he had writ-
ten a special ballet emfitled “The
Dance of the 21st Century” for
the Cambridge May Week. This
bollet was introduced into the
United States and achieved such
a success that the National Broad-
casting Company arranged a
coast-to-coast “hook-up,” with

How much of North Korea’s industry is of mili-

appears fragmentary, but there is ample evidence
that U.S. strategic bombers have a wide variety of
prime targets for continuing heavy air strikes.

DRY GQODS DEPT:

To, The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Judging by your leading
article it is proposed that mon-
opoly public utility companies
should be placed under three Com-
missioners, nominated by the Gov-
ernor for the term of five years,
who would have power to review
their operation and to revise their
charges, whether fixed by private
contract or by statute, and to this
end to make investigations and to
obtain all information and advice
that they deem expedient, the
costs and expenses being levied on
these companies.

This is strong medicine and, be-
fore taking it, consideration is
needed to make sure that the cure
is not worse than the disease.

To take the last point first, it
must not be overlooked that it is
the customers of these companies
who provide the money out of
which the companies pay their ex-
penses. Any considerable increase
in these expenses is likely to lead
to higher charges. When the cus-
tomers realize that it is they who
will pay for the Commissioners
and their activities, enthusiasm
may wane. Costs would need to be
counted carefully .and possible
benefit estimated.

I am not attracted by the pro-
posed power to revise private
contracts. As I think, commercial
health depends on confidence that
what a man promises that he will
perform, This confidence is an
essential factor in even the most
ordinary every day transactions.
Anything that tends to undermine
it, is, in my belief, hurtful to the

community. The law has pro-
tected the young and the weak
minded, but sane adults should be
expected to fulfil their obligations.

The proposal that the Commis-
sioners should be empowered to
override legislation {s surprising.
Surely the Legislature is and must
remain the supreme authority. If

proposal is too drastic, the ap-
pointment of Commissioners may
well be useful both to the Public
and to the Companies.

If the Commissioners were em-
powered to receive and to investi-
gate complaints, reporting their
findings both to the House of
Assembly and to the Legislative
Council, the report being also pub-
lished in the Press, it would, I be-
lieve, be beneficial all round. In-
deed the fact of the Commissioners’
existence would tend to prevent
acrimony. They should be enti-
tled to deal with the costs of their
enquiry as they may think just.

If the Commissioners’ duty were
to investigate and report no appeal
would be necessary, for the Leg-
islature would act as might be just.
But if they had power to enforce
their views, then I certainly agree
with you that there should be full
rights of appeal to the Courts of
Justice.

The Commissioners themselves
would, I suppose, be men of stand-
ing in the community, unbiassed
(in a relatively smal! place this
may be a difficulty) and of un-
questioned probity. It would be
well if they agreed to serve from
a sense of public duty and without
pay. Such positions should be
held for honour, and not be look-
ed on as rewards for this or that.
It would be unfortunate if these
companies’ customers came _ to
think that the charges they paid
were loaded to provide “jobs for
the boys.” Also I venture to sug-
gest a three year, instead of a five
year term,

May I add that Barbados has a
long history and a tradition of go-
ing its own way. Mischief has
been caused in the past by thrust-
ing upon it ready made garments
fitted to other figures, with too
little attention to essenital altera-
tions. If these reach-me-downs
designed for other wearers. rub

Boys’ Club
To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Some people in this com-
munity conceive it their duty to
throw cold’ water on the efforts
of those who would help others
in any direction, These are the
people who do nothing, to others’
efforts they, cantribute nothing
and who are loudest in their
criticisms of everything,

Taking advantage of the court-
esy extended to him in the col-

umns of this newspaper, one
correspondent signing himself
“Anti Police Club” finds it

Strange. that the Police should
run a Boys’ Club, accuses the
Police of playing lukewarm witn
crime, and purposely misnames
pyr eon a Police Club.

other correspondent signin;
himself “R ident” ‘weites mt
more nonsense. He attempts to
gauge public feeling, condemns
the use of the former Guard
House, lies blatantly about
feeble people living in discom-
fort because of the presence of
the Club, proceeds to draw the
conclusion that the presence of
that Club makes the place a
slum area, and suggests that the
school opposite be used, and the
Guard House be put back.
Finally thas gentleman ‘admits
that “Since the withdrawal of
the Police from the Guard
House rowdyism has _ increased
in this area,”

To those who object to the
Police running the Boys’ Club,
I should like to say that they
should have been running a
club and the Police would have
had no need to do so. It is

clear that it is needed, judging
by the reception which it was
given; it is clear that it was

Lastly let me say that it seems
that the Police have shown a
finer sense of their responsibili-
ties and their duties than many
of those who hold themselves
out aa -outstanding aitigens. [
well remember that the same
agcusations were made against
Mr. John Beckles when he first
started the Childrens’ Goodwill
League. Today the tune is a
different one and those who now
curse it will one day come to
bless the establishment of the
Bay Street Boys’ Club.

People should not be allowed
to come from distressed areas
and other parts of the world
where they cannot sleep in peace
and try to tel] Barbadians how
they must run their own business.

Appreciation
To, The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Please grant me space in
your valuable columns to express
sincere thanks and appreciation to
the many people who have con-
tributed to make my short stay in
this island very happy and enjoy-
able.

I arrived here on Monday 7th
and leave to-day for my homeland
Grenada, with deep regret and an
everlasting remembrance of this
beautiful island, the very friendly
and entertaining people with
whom I came into contact and last
but by no means least, the home
of a very congenial atmosphere
which I was privileged to enjoy.

This morning I was asked, “If I
had to choose, where would I like
to spend my next vacation”, and
without hesitation, I replied, “Bar-
bados, if you please.”

Thanking you Mr. Editor, and
the“peopte of Barbados whom I
would be glad to meet in Grenada.

Two More
Boys’ Clubs

BY SEPTEMBER

B* THE END OF SEPTEMBER

it is expected to bring the
number of local Boys’ Club formed
by the Police to three. The Com-
missioner of Police now has two
more buildings and he hopes to
open these Clubs by the end of
next month.

In an interview with the
Advocate yesterday, Col. R. T.
Michelin, Commissioner of Police,
said that one of the buildings is

situated in the City, at Pinfold]

Street and will accommodate over

100 boys. |

The other is at Speightstown,
(situated on the sea) and will ac-
commodate 50 boys.- He said that
the furniture for both is now
being made. He is still looking
for other buildings to form more

Clubs |

FIRE OCCURRED at Bishop's

Court, Bishop's Court Hill atl

about 7.15 p.m. on Thursday. Only
a trimming board around the
building was burnt.

It is understood that a defective
electric wire, which ran under the
board, caused the fire. The Fire
Brigade and employees of the
Electric Company arrived on the
scene and the blaze was ex-
tinguished without further damage.

The building is the property of
the Governor-in-Executive Com-
mittee.
ke BISHOP of Dash Gap,

St. Michael reported to the
Police that his joiner’s shop at
the same address was broken and
¢ntered between 7 p.m. on Wednes-
day and 8.15 am. on Thursday
and a .quantity of tools to the
value of $67.84 were removed.

RIDGETOWN WAS WET and

gloomy up to about 2.30 p.m.
yesterday. intermittent showers
fell and this was mainly re-
sponsible for keeping the temp-
erature down to 83.5 degrees

Fahrenheit.

During the morning a few
clerks and businessmen were
caught without raincoats and

umbrellas but after their break-
fast hour the majority returned
prepared for the evening showers.

It was not until after 3 p.m.
that the day brightened. Many
dark clouds had passed over and
during the after-work hours these
folk did not need either umbrella
or raincoat.

The large umbrella erected for
the Constable on point duty op-
posite the Canadian Bank of Com—
merce, served its purpose. During
the occasional downpours this
Constable was still able to direct
traffic and keep it under control.
Prior to the erection of this
umbrella, many traffic jams could
be seen in Broad Street when the
Constable took shelter during a
shower

Wayside vendors were on many
occasions forced to take shelter
inside the stores. Some only
turew a tarpaulin over their trays
until the rain stopped. The gutters
and streets were very clean during
the evening.

KY. ROAw cepairs are}
being carried out aloyg the
St. James Coast.

About 200 yards of road, ex-
tending from Holder’s Corner to
Derricks Corner, has already been |
completed. , |

Yesterday, workmen were con-
tinuing their repairs, going North
ef Holder’s Corner. Gutters are}
being built up and side walks are
being made while the road is being
dug up in preparation for a new
surface,

Throughout the day, rollers,
pick axes, sledges, shovels and
other implements are in action.
These operations block half of the
road, causing a great delay in flow
of traffic. Flagmen, however, are
put at either end of the stretch
of road under repairs to prevent
a traffic jam. F

Around St. Albans Corner,
which is further to the North
along the St. James Coast, stones
and drums of colas have been
dropped along the side of the road.
Repairs to that road may soon be
underway.

LEXANDER JONES of Gall
Hill, Christ Church, reported
that his provision shop at the same
address was broken and entered
curing Wednesday night and a
quantity of articles ,to.the value
of $17.18 removed.
NE MOTORIST WAS charged
yesterday with failing to stop
at a Major Road. Of the five
traffic offences recorded two
motorists were charged for driving
their vehicles without a lighted
lamp to the rear and another for
stopping within 380 feet of a
corner.

A conductor was also charged
for not wearing his conductor’s
badge exposed to view.

A Flying Visit

SHORTLY after mid-day yes-
terday a B-17 Flying Fortress
arrived at Seawell airport from,
Puerto Rico, with a crew of eight.
They were, Col. R. T. King, Pilot,
U.S. Air Force; Lt. Col. R. V.
Travis. Co-Pilot; Lt, Col. J. W.
Holt, Co-Pilot; Maj. W. C. Dodds,

Mr. Skinner said that from. time

in 1945 and there has been no

Considering the constant rise in

the cost of living, the rise in price
of gasoline, he felt that the matter
should be gone into.

He drew up a chart repregenting

the mileage, routes and fares paid
on buses in the island, and invited
the concessionaires to a confer-
ence,

The concessionaires were given

from P.C. 86 Murray, a Sergeant
who is attached to Central Polite
Station. He said that about 1,15
a.m. on July 30 he was on patrol
duty on Roebuck Street near
Crumpton Street corner. He saw
a motor car coming down Roebuck
Street going in the direction of
the Purity Bakery. There wes no
rear light attached to the car
which was being driven at a
fast rate.

As soon as the car reached
as far as Carlton Browne’s
drug store he heard a noise as
if the car had struck someone
or something. He immediately
began to walk to the scene but
before getting there he en-
countered Oscar Minghs who
made a_ statement to him.
When he reached the scene
he saw a man lying on the
ground at the junction of
Church and Roebuck Streets
bleeding from a wound on his
head. This man he was told
was named Clarence Grant
better known as Lingward.
About 25 yards further down

there was another man also lying
on the ground and he was bleed-
irg profusely from the head. On
, seeing these conditions he sent a
message for the Police Van which
came and took both of the men
to the General Hospital.

Picked Up Hat

When the van had left Roebuck
Street he nicked up a hat be-
longing to Gregory — the second

The accident

He said that it must be remem-

bered that the law says that the
minimum stage is % mile and the
maximum fare is 3c. a stage.

The concessionaires were not
nsking for increases beyond their
limits, but in the interest of the
travelling public, the best proce-

dure was a “levelling up” system.

‘Cheap Service

Arguments put forward to him
by the Concessionaires were that,
firstly, Barbados has a very cheap
bus service as compared with other
places; and secondly, 2c. per mile
was paid years ago and was not
considered exhorbitant. Why is it
that the 2c. per mile has not yet
been increased ?

These, the Director said, were
fairly strong points. but his com-
mittee would have had to view the
matter from two angles.

Present at the conference was
Mr. C. B. Ward, Chief Inspector of
the Department of Highways and
Transport.

‘Institutes in England and, in 1917,

St. George Women’s

Institute Revived
Doll-Making Class Begins Wednesday

THERE was formerly a Women’s Institute in Barbados but
this ceased to function about 12 months ago. It was formed
by women of the Ellerton Village, St. George.

‘ was however revived by Mrs. Eleanor Baker of England
on August 9 when Officers were elected. Mrs. Baker is a
member of the Women’s Institute at Dorset. Unfortunately
she leaves on August 22 for the U.K. after spending two
years and three months in the island.

In an interview with the the Women’s Institute Organisa-
Advocate yesterday Mrs. Baker tion for making jam from sur-
said “The Women’s Institute is plus fruit, and all over the coun-
the most wide-spread movement! ty Women’s Institute members
for adult education, though that is| @%d_ voluntary helpers spent |

hours or days every week mak-
ing and bottling jam of all kinds
which, after being examined and
passed by experts, was sold to
jocal shops to go “on the ration”’.
Profits went to the Women’s In-
stitute fund
A growing demand for more
educational facilities is being met
by lecture courses in conjunction
with the Workers’ Educational
\ssociation and by week-end
schools. In 1947 the first summer
school was held at Upton Manor,
the home of Lady Lees, in Dorset,
and proved such a success that it
will doubtless be followed by

many more.

not its specific object. }
The first Women’s Institute was)
formed in Ontario in 1897. During |
World War I the need for a com-|
bined effort, particularly in food}
production and preservation, lel |
to the organisation of Woren’s
there were 137 in existence. The
number 30 years later was 6,531

General Discussion

Women’s Institutes are gather-
ings of country women (usually
confined to villages with not more
than 4,000 inhabitants) who meet
together at least once a month to
discuss matters of interest to them
all. They may be rich or poor,
educated or simple, but all come
to learn what, they can and to
teach all they know.

The travelled lady of the
manor can give a talk on strange
lands and customs; the labourer’s
wife can demonstrate the ancient
craft of quilting; the music
lover organise a choir.

All pay the same subscription
and have the same rights and
privileges, The Vicar’s wife and
her young maidservant attend
together. The Queen and the
two Princesses are all members
of the Sandringham Women's
Institute.

In size the Women’s Institutes
may vary from the larger and
more properous ones of 100 to
150 members, often owning their
own Hall, and running a Choir,
Dramatic Society, Needlework
Guild and Library, to a small one
of 15 to 20 members. The manage-
ment is always the same—by a
Committee elected by secret ballot,
‘vith President and Secretary,



In the same year Marcham Park,
nine miles from Oxford, was pur-
chased and renamed the Denman
College. Here, in addition to prac-
tical courses in Handicraft, Horti-
culture, Cookery, Music and
Drama, it is intended to give in-
struction in International Affairs,
Citizenship, History and Litera-

ture,

Mrs. Baker said, “Women's In-
stitutes or similar Societies have
been formed in many parts of the
world, India, Australia, New Zea-

land, Rhodesia, Natal, Nyasaland,
and British Guiana all

House to House’ Enquiry ‘
In England each Women’s
Institute is affiliated to its County
Federation and National Federa-
tion and sends delegates and
resolutions to both bodies, In
support of a National resolution
advocating a better water supply
for rural districts, many Institutes
conducted a house to house en-
quiry to discover what proportion
of rural homes had tap water and
how many depended on wells,
stand pipes or rain water tanks.

is done to influence public opinion
and rouse rural district councils
to appropriate action,

Opens With Song

Each meeting commences with
the singing of Blake’s “Jerusalem”
or some other song, followed by
discussion of business, then a talk,
cemonstration or debate, Fre-
quently a competition in cookery
or craft work is judged and awards
given, or an Exhibition (old china,
garden flowers, embroidery, etc.,
etc.) forms a focus of interest ana
discussion.

Then follows the “Social half-
hour” which should be as informal
as possible, affording opportunities
for all members to mix and be-
come better acquainted, and for
neweomers to make friends. For
this purpose some entertainment
in which all can join is best—
games, charades, community sing-
ing,—though performances by in-
dividual gifted members of the
Women’s Institute Choirs or
Dramatic Society have their place.
A Quiz or “Twenty Questions”
provides both entertainment and
education.

Neighbouring Institutes may be
invited for special performances,
and the circle of friendship is thus
enlarged or the occasion may be
made an “Open Meeting” at which
husbands, brothers and friends
form part of the audience,

FERTILITY |'They Anchor

SAYS GOVT. CHEMIST

WHERE does the phosphate ih
the local soil come from, and does
it have any definite effect on the
quality of the local cane juice?
These are two questions which
were discussed yesterday by Mr.
J. B. D. Rebinson, Government
Aeticultural Chemist when he
lectured to members of the
Agricultural Society yesterday.

The subject of the leeture was
sa Fertility, Se eee
spoken off teehnica
trating his address with diagrams
and equations, Mr, Rebingon dealt
with the effect of nitrogen, potash,
and phosphate on the fertility of
thé soil.

He explained that nitrogen and
potash complemented each other.
Both must be put in, and not one
without the other, if the maximum
fertility was to be obtaifiéd, Phos
phate, he said, did not seem
necessary.

Major Factor

Mr. Robinson said that soil
erosion in Barbados was one of
the major factors aifecting soil
fertility. He called it something
which should be facéd up to,
whether it oecurred in the red or
black soil areas. It was not only
the few tons of soil that was
collected at the bottom of the slope
after heavy rainfall that mattered,
he added, The erosion which took
place from ridge to cahe hole was
just as serious.

Referring to the chart of a
soil survey carried out by Sir
John Saint, former Director of
Agriculture during the years
1929 to 1931, Mr. Robinson said
the méan figures represented a
certain optimum Jevel that had
been maintained In the local
soil with the system of Ccultiva-
tion and fertilizing used here.
It indicated, he said, that the
island as a whole had gone
forward considerably, and which
showed a sound basis of cane
husbandry.

Replying to a question by
Hon’ble G. D. L. Pile as to whether
the application of phosphate had
any result in improving the juice
of the cane, Mr. Robinson said
that it appeared that phosphate
on some occasions did correlate
with a better juice, but some-—
times it did not.

Set Quality

As he had said, nitrogen and
potash complemented each other
and use of both resulted in a set
juice quality. As far as he could
see at present, the use of phos-
phate did not always result in
improvement of the sucrose
content of the juice,

Mr, Robinson said he was not
jcertain where the phosphate in
the soil in Barbados came from
It could hardly be from the
coral rock, since that was low in

phosphate content. Poasibly, it
came from the voleanic dust that
settled on the islattd in the past.

was very interested in the

p hate question, and was going
to continue his experiments fe-
lative to the relation between the

application of phdsphate and the
juice quality.

SAYS LIGHTERMAN

RAIN did net hamper water-
front workers yesterday because
there was very little activity on
the Whaff. The Schooner Frances
W. Smith, which is tied off in the
Inner Basin, was taking a load of
lime for British Guiana e at
the Lower Wharf a few vendors
were buying wood from the
Schooner Bluenose Mac. A pum-
ber of seamen could be seen Clean-
ing up the Schooner Belqueen,

Lighters were being loaded with
sugar at the Inner basin while
others took puncheons of molasses
at the Lower Wharf. The majority
were loading in prepuration for the
next ship that calls here for sugar
and molasses, and as soon a8 they
were loaded, their crews placed
a tarpaulin over the contents

Prompt Loading

In an interview with the “Advo-

cate”, a iighterman said that this

method is employed so that they | Flanigan, &s8. Esso Avilla, ss. Porlys,

can begin loading the ship as
as it anchors.

On the Opposite side of the
Lower Wharf was also very
quiet, Around mid-day no one
could be seen by the Baggage
Warehouse landing and_ there
were no boats on dock although
the Motor Vessel Blue Star was
tied off in the vicinity.

Further up a number of drums
containing colas were neatly
backed away. Whenever colas is
brought by intercolonial vessels
from Trinidad it is always depos-
ited at this spot.

The only intercolonial vessel to
arrive yesterday was the Schooner
Lady Noeleen, It came from Trini-
dad and brought two passengers
and a quantity of cargo.

Cocoanuts

The cargo was made up of 3,000
loose coconuts, 15 cords of fire-
wood, 23 bunches and 20 packages
of fresh fruit. Passengers were
Josephine Nelson and Josephine
Curiel.

The 94-ton Motor Vessel Daer-
wood under Capt. DaCoteau sailed
for St. Lucia with cargo and
passengers. Both the Noeleen and
Daerwood are consigned to the
Schooner Owners’ Association.

£5 Awarded For
Damaged Property

A decision of Mr. S. H. Rud-
der, Police Magistrate, was yester-
day confirmed by Their Honours
of The Assistant Court of Appeal,
Mr. G. L. Taylor and Mr. J. W. B.
Chenery. Mr. Nurse had given
judgment to Millicent Vaughan for



£5 which she claimed from her
husband after his sheep had
damaged her young canes in

Taitts Herring Hill, on May 9,
10 and 18.

Millicent and her husband
Joseph do not live together. Mr.
C. H. Clarke appeared for Milli-
cent while Mr, W. W. Reece was
counsel for her husband.

Joseph Vaughn appealed against
the decision of the Court of
Appeal.

Millicent has land some distance
away fiom Her home and evidence
for the prosecution showed that
Joseph’s cow and three sheep
had been seen in her land grazing.

No One Saw

Mr. Reece argued that though
the sheep were seen on the land,
no one had seen Joseph Vaughn
stake them there. The mere cir-
cumstance of his being the owner
of the animals did not make him
liable. It had to be proved that
there was negligence or that the
animals had been wilfully staked
there. He said that a hole of
young canes could searcely cost
10 cents as was given in evidence.

Mr. Clarke said that it had been
proved that there used to bé a
systematic feeding of Joseph's
cattle on Millicent’s land. From
Mr. Reece’s argument nobody
would be secure from damage by
such means if the owner of cattle
carried them on one’s land at
night and was not seen,

Accept Evidence

To assess the damage, he held,
the court éithér had to go by
judicial notice or by the evidence.
Millicetit had brought evidence to
establish the worth of the shoots
and that had to be accepted since
Joseph did not bring evidence to
dispute it.

The Magistrate had made allow-
ance for all the shoots not having
been damaged to the same extent
and he felt that the judges should
not change his findings.

Dutch Guides
To See First
Polo Game |

THIS EVENING

The last afternoon in Barbados
for the Dutch Girl Guides now
visiting our shores will be spent
watching Polo at the Garrison.
These girls have never seen a
game of Polo, and will no doubt
find it somewhat different to
Hockey and Net Ball,



—

The games on Wednesday were
divided in alternate chukkas of
Seniors and Juniors with one
Senior player on each side of
the Juniors. It was the all
senior games naturally that
caused the greatest interest, for
these were contests of ‘giants’
against ‘giants’, and it would be
difficult to say who was the most
outstanding player.

Perhaps John Marsh on Hawk might have got “top marks’.
but then Colin Deane and Colonel
Michelin were also in excellent
form. It was a pleasure to see
Major Skewes-Cox back in action
again after his accident a few
weeks ago, and although his
sprained ankle is still somewhat
painful, he could not resist taking
part in some of the chukkas even
though this meant playing without
riding boots.

One of the most spectacular
events of the evening was when
a ball was hit from the ‘eld

Books On Sport

By 0. 8S. Coppin

PLAYFAIR'’S Cricket Annual 1950 ($1.02) and “Cricketers
from the West Indies” (30c.) on sale at the Advocate
Stationery Department are two books that should at once
find their places on the bookshelves of all keen followers

of cricket.

both this week.
_ Pleyfair’s Annual is edited by
Peter West and Neville Cardus,
wlio supplies the foreword in his
ov/n inimitable style, heads the
list of an imposing array of cricket
writers,

Imposing List of Writers

Rex Alston writes about the
Yew Zealand tour to England last

year. In his article he does not
reproduce his charmingly racy
and entertaining style of the

m‘crophone but writes in a precise
and convincing manner his im-
pressions of the tour, as one who
has paid great attention to every
detail and every circumstance of
that tour,

Charles Bray has contributed
“Overseas Tours” in which he has
to mention the
picturesque grounds at Capetown,
Adelaide, Barbados, Trinidad and
Jamaica and surfbathing at Sydney
cr in the clear blue waters of the
West Indies.

Constantine Again

Constantine discusses the
chances of the West Indies in an
article “The West Indies Can Win”
but they must emphasise the
peculiarly distinctive form of West
Indian cricket.

Louis Duffus writes with rare
skill, an account of the Australia
tour to South Africa in 1949 and
pays tribute to the genius of 21-
year-old left hander, Neil Harvey
ranking him the most aggressive
and attractive left hander to visit
South Africa since Frank Woolley.

Excellent Job

Roy Webber has done an ex-
cellent job in préparing a Who’s
Who of English cricketers that
embraces almost everyone who ap-
peared in first class cricket in
England in 1949 and even some
who did not play.

Roy Webber alone has compiled
tables giving the full career
record, complete to September
30, 1949, of every player likely to
eppear in the 1950 season.

This’ includes players like
Constable, Cook, Doggart, Dollery,
Grieves, Berry, Hever, Muncer,
Pleass, Prentice, Shackleton and
many other players that performed
ereditably against the West Indies





the spectators were standing and
suddenly a hand shot out and cook
the ball in a brilliant catch.

Believe it or not, but the
catcher was Mr. S. T. Harrison
who as a 1914 Polo Player is
still very keen on the game and
seldom fails to attend the matches.
Needless to say a cheer weit up
not only for the catch whic. was
worthy of a test match cvicket
player, but because the ball may
have struck one of the children
at play on the field beyond

It is hoped that the weather
will be kind this afternoon s9 tht
he attractive visitors in uniform
may see their first game of Palo

I have been very privileged to have read them



Sir PELHAM WARNER

on this tour with whose records
we. were not quite familiar.

An interesting feature of the
Annual is the “Playfair’s Eleven
Cricketers of 1949.” These are
all caricatured and the reasons
for their selection given as well.

I found most helpful and inform-
ative the photographs and names
of the twenty-six professionals
elected to be honorary member
of the M.C.C,

W.I. Cricketers

“Cricketers from the West
Indies” is perhaps the only book
of its kind ever published about
West Indian cricket. It gives a
complete “Who’s Who” of the 1950
West Indies team to England,

Interesting Background

Pat Landsburg in an article
“Background to the tour” gives a
short history of West Indies
cricket ranging from 1895 when
Slade Lucas brought the first
English team to the West Indies,
through 1928 when they were first
given Test match status, past
1930-31 when they toured Australia
for the first and only time up to
now, straight on to the India tour
of 1948-49.

The records of previous West
Indies tours to England—1906-1939
are cleverly set out to be found
at a glance.

There are many more records,
facts and figures given in this
thirty-two page book.

Tribute to H. C.

Sir Pelham Warner has written
the foreword and has taken the
opportunity to pay a tribute to
Harrison College. He writes:—
“Whatever success I may have at-
tained at cricket was largely due to
my earliest lessons at Harrison Col-
lege, Barbados, a school, which
considering its size and the com-
paratively short time it has been
in existence, has produced as
many good cricketers as almost
any other school.”

cess, write a columnist
“wWWwews Chronicle.” He quotes
siaro.d Grannum, Trinidad-born
varrister, on this game: “Every
schoolboy plays it at break-time
cr odd moments. Someone tnrows
u& cricket bat into the air and
inere’s a scrum for it. Lucky
chap who gets the bat is then
bowved to, and his sole object
is to hit the ball. There’s no
wicket, no runs, but as soon as
le misses the ball he’s out and
}as to pass the bat to the bowler”.

Grannum believes this business
of hitting the ball is very import-
unt. He says it gives lads a keen
eye and produces a_ spirit of
attack. Over here children con-
centrate too much on defend ng
the wicket—even if its only a
dustbin or chalk marks on the
wall. They’d do better to learn
to hit the ball.” It sounds con-
vineing. —L.E.S.

PRIZE CROSSWORD

West Indies Play |
Gloucestershire To-day |

Today the West Indies engage
Gloucestershire in the twenty sev-
enth game of their tour, at Chel-
tenham, and the county which
gave English cricket its Walter
Hammond can be relied upon tc
give the visitors a good game.
There have always been stout-
hearted, and clever players at
Gioucestershire of the ilk of Tom
Geddard, Crapp and Emmett, ano
theif T. W. Graveney was at the
Opening of the present season
mentioned as “one of the young
men” to watch,

So with the “tumult and the
shouting” of Test matches wel
behind them, and after two days
of well earned rest the West
Indies will enter today’s game
prepared to uphold the name they
have made for themselves.

The tour near its close, and the
skipper will perhaps, give all
members of the team full oppor-

tunity without endangering the
the all-round strength of his
combination . Pierre, Williams,

Reason for this is that beyond six miles from the City, all 2c stages have been increased to '*i :..i;.'.In the City area there has been what is called a "levelling up" of fares. That is. certain ducrepanelei with bus concessionaires have been settled. However, care has been taken thai the terminal fares taken on Ld-'^ win a country terminus, does not exceed 2c per mile This, the Director pointed out. is legal and is paid by passengers using other routes. The new fares proposed, which will be In some casei, higher than before, will be posted up in thc 'buses of every route from September 1. Mr Skinner said that from time to time, bus concessionaires have been coming to him asking for new fares That was going on since that department was opened in 1945 and there has been no increase in fares since 1939 MM In C.O.L. Considering the constant rise In the cost of living, the rise in price of gasoline, he felt that the mnttei •mid be gone into. He drew up a chart representing e mileage, routes and fares paid i buses In the island, and invited the concessionaires to a conferThe concessionaires were given Chard ->n which they were asked to ir*.ke proposals. They made certain recommendations which were not entirely agreed with by the committee which went into the matter. That committee then de< elded to implement a levelling up process. He said that It must be remembered that the law -ays that the minimum stage Is l i mile and the maximum fare Is Sc. a stage. The concessionaires were not asking for increases beyond their limits, but in the interest of the travelling public, the best procedure was a "levelling up" system Cheap Service Arguments put forward to him :..

"'ll t!:..\ firstly, Barbados nas a very ch bus service as compared with other places; and secondly. 2c. per mile paid years ago and was not dered exhorbitant Why is it that thc 2c. per mile has not yet been increased ?
