EK. Prussia Is
Huge Armed
Soviet Camp

BERLIN, Jan. 4.

The northern part of East Prus-
Sia, which has been incorporated
in the Soviet Union after the war,
is to-day just a huge
camp, |jinhabited almost entirely
by Soviet soldiers and forced la-
bourers, the West Berlin
Demokrat” reports.

The paper, many of whose re-
ports have in the past often
proved extremely unreliable, said
that according to eye witnesses,
East Prussia was now hermetical-
ly sealed off both from the West
and from the Soviet Union.

“Between the river Pregrel and
the river Memel there are about
20 big military camps, a dense
net-work of airfields and under-
ground hangars’’.

North of Kaliningrad (formerly
Koenigsberg) the Russians had
weapon firing bases as part of the

Soviet main line reaching from
the Dneiper to the Memel, the
paper reported.
Other details of the report
were:
(1) Soviet troops in East

Prussia are mainly tank divis-
ions and parachutists.

(2) The Pillau Canal is being

deepened and Insteeburg is being
turned into an experimental
station for new weapons.

(3) The undamaged port of
Memel is being turned into a
submarine base.

(4) No Germans are to be
seen, Soviet immigrants in the
area are mostly Mongols, who
cannot speak Russian,

(5) The frontier \ith Poland
is guarded by special troops
equipped with bloodhounds.

for over 100 years, told me today
that the decision of the Associa-
tion of West India Trans-Atlantic
Steamship Lines was inevitable.

“It is a hard blow to consumers
in the West Indies,” he said,
“but present costs, from the ship
owners’ point of view, are un-
economical.

“Pre-war a ship could be built
for £300,000, buv today the same
vessel would cost £1,000,000.”

Mr. Henriques pointed out
that while in the present circum-
stances the increased charge was
unavoidable, he felt that some

West Indian shipping could have
avoided the necessity

must inevitably bring about an

ever, was not unexpected having
regard to the trend of things to-
day.

Mr. D. G. Leacock, jnr., President |
cf the Chamber of Commerce and|
a representative of the agents of
the Netierlands Steamship Com-
pany, said that if the statement
was correct it was regrettable the!
shipping companies had found it
necessary to increase the rates.

In his view it was sure to bring
about an increase in the cost of
living in the colony to some ex
tent.

He thought that practically all)
building materials except lumber
would have to be increased in
price by an amount correspond-
ing to the increased freight rate
This would be so because almost



affect the basic cost of living
would likewise be affected. Among
these would be the machinery!
which would be brought in by the
various factories and the impor-)
tant item of sulphate of ammonia.!

He did not think foodstuffs!
should be affected because’ most
of these did not come from Great)
Britain or the continent. Only;
special items like English potatoes
should be. |

Taking everything into con-|
sideration, he considered that the!
change in the freight rates men-|
tioned, would undoubtedly create’
an additional burden on the popu-!
lation of the island. |

Messrs R. M. Jones, agents for
the French Line ships said they

On Trade Talks

To a question about the fate!

Britain’s trade talks with
gentina, Sir Stafford replied,
there was no news of much pro-

ss. Asked if he thought some
tish firms were at present
making excessive profits, he
mswered: “A number are mak-
ng very large profits and I think

h some eases they might be used
n reducing prices for the general
benefit”. He told another ques-
i loner that he was “perfectly

Election Petitions Likely
From Five Constituencies

KINGSTON, Jamaica. (By Mail)

REPORTS of impending elec-

Constituencies in which eleetion
petitions are likely to be filed now
are: Western. St. Andrew, West-

and Western St. Ann.

In one of these cases parallel
police prosecution in respect of
alleged election malpractices un- |

Building Case Soviet Still Hold

Dropped

PARIS, Jan. 4.

Investigation of the charge of
economic collaboration against the
French contracting firm of Saint
Rapt and Brice has been definite-
ly dropped by the Paris Court of
Inquiry, it was learned here.
Mention of this case had raised
an uproar in the French National
Assembly, and indirectly caused
the resignation of Prime Minister,
Andre Marie early in 1949. Proof
had been obtained’ that the firm,
alleged to have made high profit
in building the Atlantic wall and
other fortifications for the Ger-
mans, had not devoted more than
40 per cent of its activities to the
Germans. This is a_ tolerated
percentage for French industrial
or trade concerns, which received
German orders without making
previous offers. —Reuter.

3 Whe Pips Squeak

THE increase in the shipping freight
at rates. announced from London yesterday
e will have the effect of raising the cost ct
living and production costs in the West
Indies. It is the first expected spectacular
inerease following on devaluation of the
pound.

} The increased rstes affect Trinidad, Bar-
bados, British Guiana and the Leeward
Islands, on cargoes from Scandinavia,
Britain and the continent from February 1.

In spite of Sir Stafford Cripps’ cheery
assurance that devaluation would be in

the interests of the West Indies, we now
see British shipping companies no less
cheerfully passing on the result of devalua-
tion to the people of the West Indies. In
this newspaper three months ago it was
pointed out that the cost of living woulda go
up in the West Indies and that only the
foresight of the merchants of Bridgetown
had cushioned the blow. It was confidently
expected that the price of imported food
and manufactured goods would rise as soon
as existing stocks had been exhausted; but
few people haa realised that increased
freight rates would be an additional bur-
den. Now that the expected blow has come
it will mean that in every case now the
importer will have to increase his price on
imports to cope with the rise in freight
rates,—a ten per cent rise,

In this island it will mean additional
hardship on the worker; and it is extremely
unfortunate that at a time when the British
West indian sugar industry has made a
debating point for Mr. Strachey’s Ministry
of Food, and the British Government has
not seen fit to override that department
and guarantee a remunerative price fcr
sugar and a long term contract this added
blow should fall. For Barbados dependent
upon sugar for its livelihood, this is a new
year gift we could have gone without.

Without this additional handicap the
West Indies were already facing a serious

p economic situation seeing that they depend
entirely on the revenue obtained from their
sale of produce to supply the essential
needs of the population; and many of these
essentials are not available in the sterling
area. The ten per cent increase in the
freight rates will entail a further rise in
the cost of goods without any correspond-
ing increase in revenue.

in the meantime Mr. Strachey appears
to be still unconvinced of the disaster
which will overtake these islands and of
the widespread poverty and possible un-
employment which will follow if the price
of sugar—our main crop—is not increased
and a long term agreement arrived at.

To make matters more depressing the
imports on which these increased rates are
to be paid can be obtained outside the
sterling area in what until devaluation
were cheaper American or Canadian mar-
kets but because of previous British trade
policy and because of devaluation itself
such goods must now be purchased inside
the sterling area. The future for West
Indian economy is bleak. The wheel has
come full circle and so far from offering
real assistance to the impoverished West
Indies the United Kingdom is treating the
West Indies as sources of revenue for
certain beneficiaries in the United King-
dom, and we are being asked to share the
burden of the British taxpayer without
any share in his “bread and circus.”

West Indian economy is staggering al-

ready from the high cost of essential food-

he | stuffs from dollar markets and the United
Kingdom cannot go on testing it beyond





iH ; breaking point. That we have reached.

| West Indian Governor



In June, 1947, Sir Alan Burns
was appointed Permanent Repre-
sentative for the United Kingdom
on the Trusteeship Council of the
United Nations. This appoint-
ment came after a lifetime spent
in getting to know the conditions
and problems with which the

Council would be dealing, for Sir

Alan had been s Colonial Ser-
vant since the .age of seven-
teen, and retired at sixty after six
years as Governor and C.-in-C.
of the Gold Coast.

He was, he says, practically
born into the Colonial Civ!
Service. His father and grand-
father had both been membe s of
that Service, and had spent their
careers in the Leeward Islands o{
the® West Indies, where Alan
Cuthbert Burns was born, at
Basseterre on St. Kitts, on Novem-
ber 9th, 1887. He came home to
be educated at St. Edmund’s Col-
lege, a Catholic school, for he and
his family ar> Catholics. His
father died when only fourty-fou:,
and it was not possible for the
toy to go on to study at the Uni-
versity, and so on February 15:h
1905 he began work in the Treas-
ury and Customs Depariment cf
St. Kitts-Nevis,

He took a lively interest in his
job from the start, and as a young
man in his early twenties co!-
laborated in a work of some mag-
nitude, being part author of the
“Index to the Titles of the Laws
of the Leeward Islands and its
Presidencies.” This, as he relates
in his autobiography, was ro
mean task, as the Leeward Islands
then consisted of five separate
presidencies each with its own
law-making council, and in the
Presidency of St. Kitts-Nevis
alone there we-e four differeat
sets of laws in force.

Sir Alan's career has been spent

in service in two parts of the
colonial territories, the West
Indies and West Africa. After

holding various appointments in
the Leeward Islands he went in
1912 to Nigeria, served during the
first wovld war in the Cameroous
campaign and in the Egba expe-
dition of 1918, and in 1924 return-
ed to the West Indies as Colonial
Secretary, Bahama Islands.

While in Nigeria he launched
out on another editorial enter-
prise; feeling tne need himself in
his work of some book of statis-
tics and facts about the country,
he suggested that he should com-
pile a handbook which should be
published by the Government.
When the suggestion -was turned
down he determined to bring out
a handbook as a private venture,
and did so at two-yearly inter-
vals from 1917 to 1933, until in
1924 the Government tought the
Nigeria Handbook from him and
brought it out as a Government
publication.

During his term of office in the
Bahamas he was a delegate to the
West Indies Conference in Lon-
don in 1926, administered the Gov-
erment of the Bahamas for va-
rious spells, and was from 1925
to 1928 a member of the House
of Assembly, This was by his own
wish; it was customary for the
Colonial Secretary to be nomin-
ated by the Gove nor as a member
of the Upper House or Legislative
Council, but Mr. Burns, as he then
was, (he received the C.M.G. in
1927, K.C.M.G. in 1936 and
G.C.M.G. in 1946) asked that in-
stead he might stand for election
to the Lower House. He was
elected, and in view of his office
became Leader of the House, with
the responsibility of piloting gov-
ernment legislation diffieu't
enough, since the Government
members never exceeded four in
a House of twenty-nine which
was inclined to regard innova-
tions, even beneficient ones like
sewerage measures, with some
suspicion,

In January 1929 Burns returned
to Nigeria as Deputy Chief Sev-
retary. During the six and a half
years of his second Nigerian ter:
of service he spent most of his
time as acting Chief Secretary,
and deputised for the Governor
on various occasions; he was an
ex official member of the Legis-
lative Council,

Sir Alan is a firm believer in
the encouragement of cultural and
social activities as an integral part
of modern administration. On
his own initiative he introduced
various amenities. During his
first spell in Nigeria he had feit
the need for a library in Lagos,
and in the absence of financial
support for such a scheme had
Started a Bodk Club. Now he
managed to raise a donation from
the Carnegie Trust, and in 1932
the Lagos Library was opened,
He also instituted the Lagos
Dining Club, a very popular in-
stitution, composed of equal num-
bers of Africans and Europeays
who met monthly for a_ social
dinner—and no speeches.

Sir Alan Burns’ first Govefnor-
ship came in 1934 when he was

appointed Governor and C.-in-C.
of British Honduras. He arrived
at a time of serious crisis in the
colony’s history, due to devasta-
tion by hurricane and to world
slump, and instantly set about
remedial measures. He obtained
grants from the Colonial Develop-
ment Fund of those days with
which he set going road-building
and drainage enterprises, en-~-
couraged the sugar industry, and
before he left had plans ready
for large-scale reclamation of
swampy areas. He endeavoured
also to encourage agriculture by
arranging for Government pur-
chase of local grain crops.

Sir Alan arranged for scholac-
ships from elementary to second-
ary schools in the colony, and also
for school meals; he repeated his
Lages enterprise by obtaining
another grant from the Carnegie
Corporation and starting a library
at Belize, and also in this case a
museum with a good collection »5f
ocjects of local origin—Maya re-
mains and plaster casts of stelae
found in the colony and removed
to the British Museum, and also
some exhibits presented by the
British Museum itself.

In 1940 he came home to be-
come Assistant Under-Secretary
of State at the Colonial Office. He
accepted the appointment though
it.meant a drop in salary, for he
had taken great interest in the
Royal Commission’s enquiry into
conditions in the West Indies in
1938/9 and hoped to be able io
help implement its recommenda-
tions. He is also a firm believer
in the usefulness of interchange of
staff between the Colonial Ser-
vice and

the Colonial Office in
London, and mentions this sub-
ject frequently in his book

“Colonial Civil Servant.”

At the Colonial Office he was
responsible for the Far East,
Pacific and West Indies Depart-
ments. It also fell to his lot to
carry out the negotiations witn
the U.S. delegates for the lease
of bases in Newfoundland, Ber-
muda and the West Indies, the
latter in return for military
equipment including fifty destroy-
ers.. Lord Cranborne (now Lord
Salisbury) formally opened the
discussions, but as Vice-Chairman
of the British Committee Sir Alan
Burns presided at all subsequent
meetings; there was some hard
bargaining, tut the negotiations
were carried out in the friendliest
atmosphere, and on leaving two
delegates sent Sir Alan a personal
telegram: “Just to have the last
word, Best of luck.”

In November 1941 Sir Alan
went out to the Gold Coast
Governor and Commander-in-
Chief, but three months later was
seconded to act as Governor of
Nigeria for some months—Febru-
ary to June 1942—during tne
Governor’s absence on leave, Here
the first thing that faced him was
a strike, serious on account of
the interruption to war work,
which he averted by means of a
personal appeal broadcast in sev-
eral languages including “pidgin”
English.

Back in the Gold Coast, Sir
Alan resumed his interrupted
study of its problems, and decided
to take action on two points
Although the Africans had not
yet asked for it, he felt that the
inclusion of Africans on the Exe-
cutive Council was desirable, and
obtained sanction for this from
the Colonial Secretary—a very
popular innovation in the colony,
He was also responsible (in pur-
Suance of the gradual policy of
Africanisation) for the first ap-
pointment of Africans to the Ad-
ministrative Service, and in Sep-
tember 1942 made the first two
appointments of African Assist-
ant District Commissioners;
the same time he arranged
three scholarships a year

To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,--While groundnuts are
hot a major crop in Barbados or
the West Indies and the ground-
nut scandal in East Africa does
not affeci’ us, yet there are certain
areas in Barbados and in other
parts of the West Indies where
groundnuts could be grown wivh
advintage vo supply local needs.
It is for this reason that I think
many of your peasant readers
may be inverested in a letter re-
cently appearing in a London
newspaper in which Louise E.
Howard, President of Albert
Howard Foundation of Organic
Husbandry gives sound advice on
the growing and harvesting ot
groundnuts:

“The administrative scandals
now emerging in connection with
the African groundnuts scheme
are no doubt disquieting, but Par-
liamen’ is dealing with them.
Being dramatic and immediate,
they may mask far more funda-
mental faults which may wreck
not only the scheme itself but the
agriculture of these areas

The planners have been neck-
less in their clearing of the bush
leaving no shelter belis between
the huge Stripped fields, so that

the stories of clouds of red dust
which penetrate even into the
teacups are just a foretaste of the
kind of disaster which at no dis-
tan’ date may ruin the nature of
these soils; and experience all
over the world has shown that
soils under an original bush are
no easy proposition, and need a
most careful programme of con-
servation from the outset. Where
in all the projects is this cardinal
point of the conservation of the
soil considered? They have als:
been old fashioned in their blina
faith in the monocropping method
supported by large machinery
This monocropping principle is
proving disastrous, and the dis-
eases now sweeping our modern
plantations are the answer. Sure-
ly the writing was already on vhe
wall, Is it true, and is. it credible
that, in the revised 10 year ro-
vation planned, groundnuts are to
follow groundnuts twice, and in
all five groundnut crops are to be
taken?

Let me give a few facts about
groundnuts frem an experienced
South Rhodesian farmer This
crop, he states, is not often seen
on new ground, and never does
one crop of groundnuts succeed
another. If this is done. alvhough



the nuts grow and appear to be a
good crop, when they come to be
harvested iv is found that the
kernels have not filled out Again,
if a heavy shower falls, the nuts
must be lifted at once or vhey
Sprout or grow mouldy. This is
why all over the East groundnuts
are grown in small lots by the
peasants; should this emergency
harvesting be necessary the whole
family can turn out—but no’ over
15,000 acres. True, combines are
to be used in
have had to be followed by glean-
ers, official, and these again by
more gleaners, unofficial, and if
any nuts are left in vhe ground
they sprout and are an intoler-
able nuisance to the succeeding
crop. Then the nuts should be
dried. This on my correspondent’s
farm is done by stooking upside
down, the nuts being thus expos-
ed to the air—labour again, and
hand labour av that.”

I am sure every one will agree
that the performance was up to

There is one point I should like
to mention, hoping that the judg-
es and music lovers will noi take
it as a criticism, but as an opin-
ion. T think nearly all the various
choirs needed a little more bass;

Ymas Choirs

SIR—There are many members

I express the deep regret that
this feature of our life has been
Fubjected to the mercenary con-
trol.

It will be admitted that
money which will be given as
prizes will be useful to many of
the péople who now take part in

the singing on Christmas morning
for which nothing else can be

Christmas 1949 was not the

usual Barbadian Christmas. There
was the usual feasting but there
was little sorrel and no choirs,
i It might have been a)| right tc
institute a competition for village
cnoirs and give them the prizes.
This would have encouraged
singing to the same extent, In
my view the Barbadian is a
natural singer and loves his music.
I remember the furore which a
mottley collection of Barbadian
labourers created in the Uniteo
States in 1944 when they came
together after dinner to
hymns and chant psalms, Some
of the American people thought
them to be freaks. But when
they heard that this was oniy
portion of the regular Sunday
afternoon exercises at home they
encouraged jt.

_ A Christmas Choir competition
is all well in its pizce but it has
robbed us of something traditional
as far as Barbados is concerned
and which cannot be
anything else. |

U.K. Takes
Action In
- Eritrea

j ERITREA, Jan. 4.

| British troops re-inforcements
{are arriving in Eritrea, and a
Warship is to be despatched soon
to. the port of Massawa, North
East of Asmara, the capital, it
was officially announced here {o-
night.

Police forces in the former Ital-
ian colony are to be substantially
strengthened, and their mobility
and striking power increased with
more transport and _ wireless
equipment. ;

Chief Administrator, Greville
Drew stated that the British Gov-
ernment was “gravely concerned
at the repeated acts of murder
and violence” in the territory re-
cently, and was determined to
suppress them.

The system of compulsory cen-
voys, introduced on November 18
as a first step towards protectins
the publie, will be continued “as
long as the need for it exists.’

Declaring that acts of terrorism
in Eritrea had been inspired by
“persons, who mistakenly believe
that they can thus influence in
their favour the decision on the
future of Eritrea,” the statement
said that the Brivish Government
had not changed its view that the
eastern provinces of Eritrps
should be ceded to Etheopia “with
adequate safeguard for the Italian
community .”

Nevertheless, the Government
cupported the United Nations
1esolution—to postpone a decision
aad to send a commission of in-
quiry to ascertain the wishes of
the people of the territory—and
would abide by it. —Reuter.

Argentine
Piigrims

VATICAN CITY, Jan. 4.

Pope Pius to-day received in
special audience 500 Argentine
pilgrims headed by Cardinal
Antonio Ceggiano Bishop of Ros-
ario Argentina.

He was accompanied by the
Bishops of Conception (Paraguay)
Sante Fe, Parana, Mendoza ani
the auxiliary Bishop of Cordoba,

The Pope addressed the pil-
grims in excellent Spanish and
recalled his visit to Argentine in

1934 as Cardinal Legate to the
Eucharistic Congress in Buenos
Aires.

Cardinal Caggiano said later he
had been profoundly impressed
by the Pope’s warm reeeption to
the pilgrimage. “It was an extra-
ordinarily affectionate audience a
wonderful meeting”, he said.

The Argentine pilgrimage wi'l
return to South America through
Switzerland, France and Spain
visiting the main religious shrines
in each country.

Dewey Opposes
Socialised Medicine
Boosts Free Enterprise

NEW YORK, Jan. 4.

Mr. Thomas E. Dewey, Govern-
or of New York, in his annual
message to the State Legislature,
to-day described socialised medi-
cine as a tool of a “Frankenstein”
government. He devoted nearly
half of his speech to an attack on
the administrations of the Fedev-
al Compulsory Health Insurance
Plan. Mr. Dewey, unsuccessful
Republican Presidential candi-
date in 1944 and 1948, charged that
President Truman’s tax and fiscal
policies were eating away the
sovereignty of the States. He
reviewed in detail what he called
New York’s “gigantic” progress in
the health and welfare fields
Within the Enterprise System
“without the taint of Socialism,”
he declared, “we have achieved
the highest health and welfare
standards in the world without
regimentation or compulsion,
without borrowing from Fascism,
Communism or Socialism.”, he
said, “it is a fact that no person
in New York State need go with-
out medical care, because he does
not have the means to pay for it,”

Wafdists
Victorious
In Egypt

2 Killed in Gun Fight

CAIRO, Wan. 4.

Wafdist “victory” demonsta-
tions began this afternoon as the
National Wafd party's big
lead in Egypt first General Elec-
tion since the war continued to
grow. z

A policeman was slightly in-
jured when several hundred pro-
Wafdist youth demonstrated out-
side the Cairo office of the anti-
Wadfist newspaper Akhbar El
Yom and broke windows.

The Wafdist scored most of its
success in the main cities and
provincial centres. The Saadis‘s,
the largest party in the outgoing
coalition, suffered big setdacks in
the surprise defeat of former
cabinet ministers and leading party
members by youthful Wafdist
candidates standing for the first
time.

Mursi Badr Bey, former Saadist
Education Minister was one of
the victims. He banned Co-
Education, ordered girl studenis
and teachers to wear long sleeved
ankle length dresses.

Polling was orderly in the big
cities, but two people were killed
in a gun-fight at the fishing vil-
lage of Edkou on the Mediterra-
nean before police intervened,

Bedouin tribesmen rode in, and
attacked frontier guards in the
Western desert near Alexandria,
when they learned that their can-
didaté had been defeated.

The final results of ti.e election
will not be known until after a
second ballet on January 10, in
constituencies where the required
majority has not been obtained.

The National Wafdist Party to-
night held 100 of the 133 seats,
for which voting results
were so far known in Egypt’s first
post-war General Election.

They had received 53 per cent.
of the first half million votes
counted. The latest results for tne
contested 319 seats of the Cham-~
ber of Deputies were:

“Wafdist 100; Independents 12;
Saadists 8; Liberal Constitution
Party 8; Nationalists 4; Socialist 1
and Kotla Party 0.

grave situaiion unless these
problems are settled within the
lirst part of the year he wld a
press conference here.

The 5,000,000 unemployed in
western Germany can only be
absorbed by a combination o1
our housing problem and grant
o1 foreign credits for reconstruc-
tion.

Dr. Adenauer said that a bal-
ance sheet showing the damage
sustained by Germany through
the war and burdens resulting
from it was being drawn up by
his government.

The losses suffered by the ex-
pelled, the bombed out, war
invalids widows and orphans
had to be faced as a whole and
not piecemeal, he added.

I am afraid the full picture
will be terrifying he said.

“The future is not too rosy.
We Germans will have to go
patiently along the uphill road
on which we started after the
catastrophe of Nazism.

The more we get on with our
werk the more we come to real-
ise the size of the world-wide
field of ruins left behind by the
Nazi regime.

Dr. Adenauer refused to give
figures on the extent of the for-
eign credits required. Comment-
ing on the settlement of German
prewar debts, he said, there
might be a need for different
forms of accommodation accord-
ing to the position of the cred-
itor.

_ Jap Loans
Drop Two Points

LONDON, Jan, 4.

Rent speculators in foreign
bonds rushed to take profits to-
day. Press comment advising
eaution touched off a wave of
profit-taking and produced losses
of one to two points in Japanese
and Greek loans. Germans
opened firm and made _ good
progress in late dealings to close
strong. This. section remained
mest active in stockmarkets and
ja fairly considerable turnover
ree reported. Fresh support for
Japanese issues was noticed in
ithe closing stages. A new account
begun on a quiet but cheerful
note. Early dealings gave firm-
ness to British funds and lead-
ing industrials. Business dried
up later however and prices
; begun to droop in idle markets.
| Most operators were awaiting a
;Government statement on Brit-
in’s gold and dollar reserves.
In the oil market, Mexican eagles
were quoted ex capital repay-
ment of six and four. Prices
showed firmness at around one
five and nine. Other oils tended
lower. —Reuter.

New Record For

| Canadian Banking

New records in the field of
Canadian banking have been
established in the annual finan-
cial statement of The Royal Bank
of Canada. Covering the twelve

|months period ending November
30, the statement shows toval as-
sets have again increased, by well
over $112,000,000 to reach $2.334,.
985,354, vhe highest in Canadian
banking his i

Since 1941 the assets of The
Royal ‘Bank of Canada have
of Unis banks partion tear

Ss on in the
remarkable business and indus-
trial expansion which has taken
place in Cand@a in recent years.
Deposits, which now total $2,192-
140.578, show an increase of
$124,000,000 over the figures of
the previous balance sheet. They
have reached the highest level

tn attained by any Canadian

—_—

Indicative of the scale of public
saving is the steady increase in
the Royal Bank’s interest-bear-
ing deposits, which have risen to
$1,060,132,600, the highest level
in the history of the bank. The
bank's interest-bearing deposits
are now over two and a half times
the 1941 figure,

The steady upward trend of
commercial loans in Canada, which
began in 1945, has continued, the
figure under this heading having
reached a total of $471,433,338.
Call loans have also increased
from $56,534,207, to $69,097,830.

The liquid position of the bank
is as usual, very strong. Liquid
assets are substantially higher
than a year ago and now stand
at $1,677,489 485, which is equal
to 76.27% of the bank's liabilities
to the public. Included in the
bank’s liquid assets are Dominion
and Provincial securities totalling
$897,338,571, an increase of $130-
424,152 as compared with the
figures in the 1948 balance sheet

Bank Premises Account has in-
creased from $11,729,957 to
$13,601,961, as a result of new
branch openings in districis re-
quiring additional banking ser-
vice, plus an extension programme
of improvements and extensions
to existing branches undertaken
during the year for the better
accommodation of the bank’s
Steadily imereasing clientele and
the resulting greater volume of
business.

Profits are higher. After the
usual deductions for Staff Pen-
sion Fund and Contingency Re-
serves, profits amounted to
$10,918 243 as compared with
$9,517,432 in the previous year.
Of this amount $4,435,000 was
set aside for Dominion and Pro-
vincial taxes, an increase of
$1,285,000 over the figures for
1948. In additio: $655,721 was set
aside for depreciation of bank
premises. After the above de-
ductions the net profit was $5,827-
521, This compares with $5 558,-

| 545 in 1948. Out of net profit,
$3,500,000 was paid in dividends

Storm’s Gift Better
Than Sugar Lady

By Bookie

to Lady’ Pink, a winner of the

Bert Williams, England and
Wolves Ikeeper, concludes his
series of articles with some sound
advice to young goalkeepers.

Watch a goalkeeper taking a
goalkick. It looks, so easy, doesn't
it? Yet there are hours of thought
and training behind it.

THE Trinidad Tu-f Club Christ- By BERT WILLIAMS

mas meeting saw a grand. climax
to a year of outstanding successe:
by two horses. A great creole filly
On the one hand and a great im-
ported ma:e on the other. I have

alrendy had something to Say
about Ocean Pearl, Mr. William
Scott’s three-year-old filly by

Flotsam out of Pearly Glow, so
I shall not repeat myself. She was
seen only once after the second
day’s racing when in a B class six
furlong she was defeated by
Fitches Greeny a winner in Ire-
land. In this event she was allow-
ing the winner no less than a full
stone and therefore her per-
formance is not without merit.
1 also believe that she was feeling
the rigours of her preparation and
the effects of two days close rac-
ing Om the first and second day of
the meeting.

Storm’s Gift

I must now deal
with is Storm’s Gift. Already I
have caused some eyebrows io
be cocked by giving it as m
opinion that she is the best mare
that Mr. Tommy Edwards has :9
far owned and therefore bette
than the famous Sugar Lady. I do
not propose to go into the whys
and wherefores of the question
at the moment but to anyone who

jut the mare

is interested enough I shall cite
my 1.easons which may ‘Ve too long
to include in this article. How-

there is now no doubt that
it is seldom that we have seen a
mare run so consistently with
such high weights at one meeting
as we saw Storm's Gift do in
Trinidad this Christmas.

Storm's Gift’s career started in
1948 and it is noticeable how long
she took to run into form. it was
not until November 1948 that she
won and then again at the Christ-

ever

mas meeting she picked up the
last event of the meeting whil
carrying light weight. After thi
she wa till not regarded as any
vorld heater Still in B at
he B i March meeting she
accounted for two at this fixture

en went on to her two mem-
orab V ries over Blue Streak
nd Atomic II at the June meet-
ing. In Barbadk in August it
was iealised what a glutton fo
work she was when a few shot
weeks after the T.T.C. Midsuin
mer event she was proved short

of work and did not run into form












until the third day of the meeting
When she took the last A Cla«s
race, In November she was thought
to be running off but as subse-
quent events | e proved she was
probably as short of work then
as she was in August. Otherwise
she would not have reaped such
a harvest at the Christmas meet-
ing

Her victory in the T.T.C. Cup,
I have already commented on
But her winning of the equiva
lent Handicap must stand out as
her best race at thi meeting
Afte; Elizalethan had set a blis-
tering pace, ably assisted in tuin
by » Streak, Determination and
finally Gun Site Storm's Giit,
with top weight of 132 Ibs., came
along and passed them all in the
stretch to win going away by a
tength and a half. Whav' I shall al-

ys regret is that I was not there
to see it. But’ yours truly had per.
foree to retire to the sanctuary of
my hotel after the first race on
the third day suffering from the
effects of that ill which is
caused by change in food and
water. However I managed to be
there on the last day and to see
herself and Gun Site fighting it
out in the last race was a fitting
climax to the meeting

Gun Site

Old Gun Site himself has earn-
ed his laurels well. I am satis-
fled that my estimate of him afte:
mis duel with The Gambler in
November is entirely correct.

What always impresses about him
is the rough handling he takes in
his races it is no exaggeration to
say that Crossley was working on
him for the last six furlongs of
the mile and 130 yards and never
once did he shirk the vask. Now
I have rated Gun Site as the best
cross of O.T.C. and Sunrise, and,
barring Atomic II vhe best colt or
gelding produced by this sire. But

even so he is still 14 lbs. below
Storm’s Gift o Monday's run-
ning

The other outstanding perform-
er in A was Blue Streak. His six
furlong in 1.15 flat was an indica-
tion that he has speed as well as

Stamina. He led from start to fin-
ish and gave no | than 15 Ibs;

Two Others

Should i be asked to pick out
two more outstanding performers
at the Christmas races I would
think of septembe: Song and the
lion hearted little Tiduc. Two
torses of more different stature

n hardly be imagined. The
former an extremely powerfully
built upstanding colt close on six-
teen hands or as much; the latter
1 compact diminutive little ches-
nut colt. Both were equally at

September Song is of course in
the imported classes. I think he
will be going much further up the
adder too as he is evidently tne
obust type and should be able
to stand up to the hard work. I
also fancy that he will go on im-
roving.

Tidue on the other hand is in

to be at his best now and will
herdly improve his condition, but
there is no telling where his big
heart take him. There is one
thing about him; he always gives

vim run.

Australia
Defeats
S. Africa

BY 8 WICKETS

CAPETOWN, Jan. 4

A fightthg century by Dudley
Nourse, the captain, failed to save
South Africa from being defeated
by Australia in the Second Test
which ended here today.

Australia won by eight wickets
to make them two up in the cur-
rent series, having won -the First
Test by an innings and 85 runs

Forced to follow on after reply-
ing with 278 to Australia’s first in-
nings of 526 for 7 declared, South
Africa were all out in their sec-
ond innings today for 333. Left
to get 86 runs in an hour and 45
minutes for victory, Australia
scored 87 for 2 in their second in-
nings with 27 minutes to spare,

By scoring a century today
Nourse equalled the South Afri-
can record of eight test centuries
held by Bruce Mitchell. He has
made six centuries against Eng-
land and two against Australia.

A Great Part

Nourse’s innings today of 114,
which occupied four hours 34
minutes and included nine hours,
played a great part in enabling
South Africa to avert an innings
defeat by 85 runs. He partnered
H. Tayfield in a seventh wicket
stand of 66 before being leg-before
to McCool,

Tayfield and

his new partner,
Norman Mann, put up a great
display when defeat looked im-
minent. Hitting out at the tiring

bowlers on a crumbling wicket,
the pair added 100 runs before be-
ing separated by Ray Lindwall

Lindwall, who did not take a
wicket in the First Test, claimed
the last five South African bats-
men to finish with figures of five
for 32 in 15 overs.

Australia went for the runs in
their second innings and scored
the required 86 in 78 minutes for
the loss of Morris and Moroney,
both being dismissed by Mann. —

If he puts that ball in the wrong
place he’s as guilty as any {for-
ward who makes a bad pass.

Some goalkeepers take an im-
mense run to kick the deaa bai.
It isn’t necessary. Take about six
or seven steps back from the ball,
then jog-trot up to it, and attempt
to drive.

Remember to keep your eye on
the ball until the moment of
impact, remember to keep the toes
well down to get “under” the ball,
ang remember to follow through.

Must Carry Through

The kick does not end at the
moment of impact. The leg must
carry through in a follow tnrougn
movement.

Don’t “toe” the ball under any
circumstances. It makes lengtn
and direction difficult, and it’s bat
for the toes! You just try it.

A goalkeeper needn’t kick all
the time. A short, well-aimed
throw to an unmarked team-mate
is often the best and quickest way
of turning defence into attack.

You need to act quickly when a
forward is coming right up tc
goal with the ball at his feet. That

have to risk injury by diving at
his feet.

Never dive face on at an op-
penent’s feet. You’re liable to hurt
yourself. Always acvance slightly
to left or to right and then dive
across.

This enables you to stop the
ball with your arms and also
leaves the goal partially blocked
by your outstretched legs.

Every footballer should under-
stand that the goalkeeper is in
complete charge of the 18-yards
area. He should be responsible for
organising line-ups and defence
against free kicks just outside the
penalty area.

I like to have a number of
players lined up shoulder tc
shoulder so that-they are guarding
one half of the goal. I can dea
with the other half.

Organise Defence

How often you see players tak-
ing up wrong, sometimes futile
positions outside the upright
during a free kick. The goalkeep-
er should cut out this waste.

You must be slick to organise
ycur defence against free kicks
Let your team mates know during
training what you expect of them
when free kicks are being taken
lear goal.

In all phases of goalkeeping re-
member this—never allow your-
self to become unsighted. If you
can’t see the ball you're useless.

Two essential items of a goal-
keeper’s equipment are gloves
and a cap. No, they’re not to keep
him warm, as some people think

The gloves are to get a good grir
on a greasy or wet ball: the cap

to shield your eyes from the
sun,

It is a good icea to have a spare
pair of woollen gloves handy in
case one pair becomes waterlogge
or too muddy to be efficient.

So there you are, young goal-
keepers. I hope you take this ad-
vice and get as much fun—and
Success—out of the game as I do
But the essence of everything you

'do on the field depends on train-

ing.
The efficiency of a player can

| be told by the manner in which}

EK. Prussia Is
Huge Armed
Soviet Camp

BERLIN, Jan. 4.

The northern part of East Prus-
Sia, which has been incorporated
in the Soviet Union after the war,
is to-day just a huge
camp, |jinhabited almost entirely
by Soviet soldiers and forced la-
bourers, the West Berlin
Demokrat” reports.

The paper, many of whose re-
ports have in the past often
proved extremely unreliable, said
that according to eye witnesses,
East Prussia was now hermetical-
ly sealed off both from the West
and from the Soviet Union.

“Between the river Pregrel and
the river Memel there are about
20 big military camps, a dense
net-work of airfields and under-
ground hangars’’.

North of Kaliningrad (formerly
Koenigsberg) the Russians had
weapon firing bases as part of the

Soviet main line reaching from
the Dneiper to the Memel, the
paper reported.
Other details of the report
were:
(1) Soviet troops in East

Prussia are mainly tank divis-
ions and parachutists.

(2) The Pillau Canal is being

deepened and Insteeburg is being
turned into an experimental
station for new weapons.

(3) The undamaged port of
Memel is being turned into a
submarine base.

(4) No Germans are to be
seen, Soviet immigrants in the
area are mostly Mongols, who
cannot speak Russian,

(5) The frontier \ith Poland
is guarded by special troops
equipped with bloodhounds.

Living Will Rise

(From Our Own Correspondent)

LONDON, Jan. 4.
((OST OF LIVING in the West Indies and also
production costs are hound to rise following
the decision announced in London yesterday that
shipping freight rates to the Eastern Caribbean are
going uv ten per cent. on February 1.

This is the view of West Indian

Mi. Harold Henriques of D. Q

Inevitable

Henriques, West Indian Exporters
Say Businessman













for over 100 years, told me today
that the decision of the Associa-
tion of West India Trans-Atlantic
Steamship Lines was inevitable.

“It is a hard blow to consumers
in the West Indies,” he said,
“but present costs, from the ship
owners’ point of view, are un-
economical.

“Pre-war a ship could be built
for £300,000, buv today the same
vessel would cost £1,000,000.”

Mr. Henriques pointed out
that while in the present circum-
stances the increased charge was
unavoidable, he felt that some
form of governmen” subsidy to
West Indian shipping could have
avoided the necessity

An increase in the shipping rates
must inevitably bring about an
increase in the local cost of liv-
ing, and is especially unfortunate

He said that there had been

Mr. D. G. Leacock, jnr., President |

a representative of the agents of

pany, said that if the statement
was correct it was regrettable the!
shipping companies had found it
necessary to increase the rates.

In his view it was sure to bring
about an increase in the cost of

He did not think foodstuffs!
should be affected because’ most
of these did not come from Great)
Britain or the continent. Only;
special items like English potatoes
should be. |

Taking everything into con-|
sideration, he considered that the!
change in the freight rates men-|

ss. Asked if he thought some
tish firms were at present

mswered: “A number are mak-

Election Petitions Likely
From Five Constituencies

KINGSTON, Jamaica. (By Mail)

REPORTS of impending elec-
tion petitions against the result of
the polling of December 20 have
been spread in quite a few con-
stituencies.

Constituencies in which eleetion
petitions are likely to be filed now
are: Western. St. Andrew, West-
ern St. Thomas, Northern St.
Elizabeth, Southern Manchester,
and Western St. Ann.

In one of these cases parallel
police prosecution in respect of
alleged election malpractices un- |
der the Election Law is said to
be pending against the agents of
a successful candidate.

Up to yesterday, however, no
petition has been filed.

Building Case Soviet Still Hold

Dropped

PARIS, Jan. 4.

Investigation of the charge of
economic collaboration against the
French contracting firm of Saint
Rapt and Brice has been definite-
ly dropped by the Paris Court of
Inquiry, it was learned here.
Mention of this case had raised
an uproar in the French National
Assembly, and indirectly caused
the resignation of Prime Minister,
Andre Marie early in 1949. Proof
had been obtained’ that the firm,
alleged to have made high profit
in building the Atlantic wall and
other fortifications for the Ger-
mans, had not devoted more than
40 per cent of its activities to the
Germans. This is a_ tolerated
percentage for French industrial
or trade concerns, which received
German orders without making
previous offers. —Reuter.

It has come to our notice that a few people are under the impression
that ordinary un-refined petroleum jelly sold in drug stores in boxes or
paper parcels is the genuine ‘Vaseline’ Petroleum Jelly.

For your protection, we, the Chesebrough Manufacturing Co. (owners
of the registered trade mark ‘Vaseline’), would like it to be known that
genuine ‘Vaseline’ Petroleum Jelly is sold in Barbados only in pots,
tubes and tins each bearing the trade mark ‘Vaseline,’ and that any
other type of box or paper wrapping does not contain genuine ‘Vaseline’
Petroleum Jelly.

For your all-round protection (cuts, burns, bruises, scalds, skin irri-
tations, sunburn, work-sore hands, baby’s rash, etc. etc.) don’t just ask
for Vaseline—ask for ‘Vaseline’ Petroleum Jelly and see that the
pot, tube. or tin is marked:

3 Whe Pips Squeak

THE increase in the shipping freight
at rates. announced from London yesterday
e will have the effect of raising the cost ct
living and production costs in the West
Indies. It is the first expected spectacular
inerease following on devaluation of the
pound.

} The increased rstes affect Trinidad, Bar-
bados, British Guiana and the Leeward
Islands, on cargoes from Scandinavia,
Britain and the continent from February 1.

In spite of Sir Stafford Cripps’ cheery
assurance that devaluation would be in

the interests of the West Indies, we now
see British shipping companies no less
cheerfully passing on the result of devalua-
tion to the people of the West Indies. In
this newspaper three months ago it was
pointed out that the cost of living woulda go
up in the West Indies and that only the
foresight of the merchants of Bridgetown
had cushioned the blow. It was confidently
expected that the price of imported food
and manufactured goods would rise as soon
as existing stocks had been exhausted; but
few people haa realised that increased
freight rates would be an additional bur-
den. Now that the expected blow has come
it will mean that in every case now the
importer will have to increase his price on
imports to cope with the rise in freight
rates,—a ten per cent rise,

In this island it will mean additional
hardship on the worker; and it is extremely
unfortunate that at a time when the British
West indian sugar industry has made a
debating point for Mr. Strachey’s Ministry
of Food, and the British Government has
not seen fit to override that department
and guarantee a remunerative price fcr
sugar and a long term contract this added
blow should fall. For Barbados dependent
upon sugar for its livelihood, this is a new
year gift we could have gone without.

Without this additional handicap the
West Indies were already facing a serious

p economic situation seeing that they depend
entirely on the revenue obtained from their
sale of produce to supply the essential
needs of the population; and many of these
essentials are not available in the sterling
area. The ten per cent increase in the
freight rates will entail a further rise in
the cost of goods without any correspond-
ing increase in revenue.

in the meantime Mr. Strachey appears
to be still unconvinced of the disaster
which will overtake these islands and of
the widespread poverty and possible un-
employment which will follow if the price
of sugar—our main crop—is not increased
and a long term agreement arrived at.

To make matters more depressing the
imports on which these increased rates are
to be paid can be obtained outside the
sterling area in what until devaluation
were cheaper American or Canadian mar-
kets but because of previous British trade
policy and because of devaluation itself
such goods must now be purchased inside
the sterling area. The future for West
Indian economy is bleak. The wheel has
come full circle and so far from offering
real assistance to the impoverished West
Indies the United Kingdom is treating the
West Indies as sources of revenue for
certain beneficiaries in the United King-
dom, and we are being asked to share the
burden of the British taxpayer without
any share in his “bread and circus.”

West Indian economy is staggering al-

ready from the high cost of essential food-

he | stuffs from dollar markets and the United
Kingdom cannot go on testing it beyond

| West Indian Governor



In June, 1947, Sir Alan Burns
was appointed Permanent Repre-
sentative for the United Kingdom
on the Trusteeship Council of the
United Nations. This appoint-
ment came after a lifetime spent
in getting to know the conditions
and problems with which the

Council would be dealing, for Sir

Alan had been s Colonial Ser-
vant since the .age of seven-
teen, and retired at sixty after six
years as Governor and C.-in-C.
of the Gold Coast.

He was, he says, practically
born into the Colonial Civ!
Service. His father and grand-
father had both been membe s of
that Service, and had spent their
careers in the Leeward Islands o{
the® West Indies, where Alan
Cuthbert Burns was born, at
Basseterre on St. Kitts, on Novem-
ber 9th, 1887. He came home to
be educated at St. Edmund’s Col-
lege, a Catholic school, for he and
his family ar> Catholics. His
father died when only fourty-fou:,
and it was not possible for the
toy to go on to study at the Uni-
versity, and so on February 15:h
1905 he began work in the Treas-
ury and Customs Depariment cf
St. Kitts-Nevis,

He took a lively interest in his
job from the start, and as a young
man in his early twenties co!-
laborated in a work of some mag-
nitude, being part author of the
“Index to the Titles of the Laws
of the Leeward Islands and its
Presidencies.” This, as he relates
in his autobiography, was ro
mean task, as the Leeward Islands
then consisted of five separate
presidencies each with its own
law-making council, and in the
Presidency of St. Kitts-Nevis
alone there we-e four differeat
sets of laws in force.

Sir Alan's career has been spent

in service in two parts of the
colonial territories, the West
Indies and West Africa. After

holding various appointments in
the Leeward Islands he went in
1912 to Nigeria, served during the
first wovld war in the Cameroous
campaign and in the Egba expe-
dition of 1918, and in 1924 return-
ed to the West Indies as Colonial
Secretary, Bahama Islands.

While in Nigeria he launched
out on another editorial enter-
prise; feeling tne need himself in
his work of some book of statis-
tics and facts about the country,
he suggested that he should com-
pile a handbook which should be
published by the Government.
When the suggestion -was turned
down he determined to bring out
a handbook as a private venture,
and did so at two-yearly inter-
vals from 1917 to 1933, until in
1924 the Government tought the
Nigeria Handbook from him and
brought it out as a Government
publication.

During his term of office in the
Bahamas he was a delegate to the
West Indies Conference in Lon-
don in 1926, administered the Gov-
erment of the Bahamas for va-
rious spells, and was from 1925
to 1928 a member of the House
of Assembly, This was by his own
wish; it was customary for the
Colonial Secretary to be nomin-
ated by the Gove nor as a member
of the Upper House or Legislative
Council, but Mr. Burns, as he then
was, (he received the C.M.G. in
1927, K.C.M.G. in 1936 and
G.C.M.G. in 1946) asked that in-
stead he might stand for election
to the Lower House. He was
elected, and in view of his office
became Leader of the House, with
the responsibility of piloting gov-
ernment legislation diffieu't
enough, since the Government
members never exceeded four in
a House of twenty-nine which
was inclined to regard innova-
tions, even beneficient ones like
sewerage measures, with some
suspicion,

In January 1929 Burns returned
to Nigeria as Deputy Chief Sev-
retary. During the six and a half
years of his second Nigerian ter:
of service he spent most of his
time as acting Chief Secretary,
and deputised for the Governor
on various occasions; he was an
ex official member of the Legis-
lative Council,

Sir Alan is a firm believer in
the encouragement of cultural and
social activities as an integral part
of modern administration. On
his own initiative he introduced
various amenities. During his
first spell in Nigeria he had feit
the need for a library in Lagos,
and in the absence of financial
support for such a scheme had
Started a Bodk Club. Now he
managed to raise a donation from
the Carnegie Trust, and in 1932
the Lagos Library was opened,
He also instituted the Lagos
Dining Club, a very popular in-
stitution, composed of equal num-
bers of Africans and Europeays
who met monthly for a_ social
dinner—and no speeches.

Sir Alan Burns’ first Govefnor-
ship came in 1934 when he was

appointed Governor and C.-in-C.
of British Honduras. He arrived
at a time of serious crisis in the
colony’s history, due to devasta-
tion by hurricane and to world
slump, and instantly set about
remedial measures. He obtained
grants from the Colonial Develop-
ment Fund of those days with
which he set going road-building
and drainage enterprises, en-~-
couraged the sugar industry, and
before he left had plans ready
for large-scale reclamation of
swampy areas. He endeavoured
also to encourage agriculture by
arranging for Government pur-
chase of local grain crops.

Sir Alan arranged for scholac-
ships from elementary to second-
ary schools in the colony, and also
for school meals; he repeated his
Lages enterprise by obtaining
another grant from the Carnegie
Corporation and starting a library
at Belize, and also in this case a
museum with a good collection »5f
ocjects of local origin—Maya re-
mains and plaster casts of stelae
found in the colony and removed
to the British Museum, and also
some exhibits presented by the
British Museum itself.

In 1940 he came home to be-
come Assistant Under-Secretary
of State at the Colonial Office. He
accepted the appointment though
it.meant a drop in salary, for he
had taken great interest in the
Royal Commission’s enquiry into
conditions in the West Indies in
1938/9 and hoped to be able io
help implement its recommenda-
tions. He is also a firm believer
in the usefulness of interchange of
staff between the Colonial Ser-
vice and

the Colonial Office in
London, and mentions this sub-
ject frequently in his book

“Colonial Civil Servant.”

At the Colonial Office he was
responsible for the Far East,
Pacific and West Indies Depart-
ments. It also fell to his lot to
carry out the negotiations witn
the U.S. delegates for the lease
of bases in Newfoundland, Ber-
muda and the West Indies, the
latter in return for military
equipment including fifty destroy-
ers.. Lord Cranborne (now Lord
Salisbury) formally opened the
discussions, but as Vice-Chairman
of the British Committee Sir Alan
Burns presided at all subsequent
meetings; there was some hard
bargaining, tut the negotiations
were carried out in the friendliest
atmosphere, and on leaving two
delegates sent Sir Alan a personal
telegram: “Just to have the last
word, Best of luck.”

In November 1941 Sir Alan
went out to the Gold Coast
Governor and Commander-in-
Chief, but three months later was
seconded to act as Governor of
Nigeria for some months—Febru-
ary to June 1942—during tne
Governor’s absence on leave, Here
the first thing that faced him was
a strike, serious on account of
the interruption to war work,
which he averted by means of a
personal appeal broadcast in sev-
eral languages including “pidgin”
English.

Back in the Gold Coast, Sir
Alan resumed his interrupted
study of its problems, and decided
to take action on two points
Although the Africans had not
yet asked for it, he felt that the
inclusion of Africans on the Exe-
cutive Council was desirable, and
obtained sanction for this from
the Colonial Secretary—a very
popular innovation in the colony,
He was also responsible (in pur-
Suance of the gradual policy of
Africanisation) for the first ap-
pointment of Africans to the Ad-
ministrative Service, and in Sep-
tember 1942 made the first two
appointments of African Assist-
ant District Commissioners;
the same time he arranged

Alan introduced another reform
before it was asked for, altering
the system of municipal admin-
istration so as to make it a train-
ing ground for self-government;
beginning with the town of Ku-
masi, he enacted an Ordinance,
providing for a Town Council with
a majority of elected members;

To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,--While groundnuts are
hot a major crop in Barbados or
the West Indies and the ground-
nut scandal in East Africa does
not affeci’ us, yet there are certain
areas in Barbados and in other
parts of the West Indies where
groundnuts could be grown wivh
advintage vo supply local needs.
It is for this reason that I think
many of your peasant readers
may be inverested in a letter re-
cently appearing in a London
newspaper in which Louise E.
Howard, President of Albert
Howard Foundation of Organic
Husbandry gives sound advice on
the growing and harvesting ot
groundnuts:

“The administrative scandals
now emerging in connection with
the African groundnuts scheme
are no doubt disquieting, but Par-
liamen’ is dealing with them.
Being dramatic and immediate,
they may mask far more funda-
mental faults which may wreck
not only the scheme itself but the
agriculture of these areas

The planners have been neck-
less in their clearing of the bush
leaving no shelter belis between
the huge Stripped fields, so that

the stories of clouds of red dust
which penetrate even into the
teacups are just a foretaste of the
kind of disaster which at no dis-
tan’ date may ruin the nature of
these soils; and experience all
over the world has shown that
soils under an original bush are
no easy proposition, and need a
most careful programme of con-
servation from the outset. Where
in all the projects is this cardinal
point of the conservation of the
soil considered? They have als:
been old fashioned in their blina
faith in the monocropping method
supported by large machinery
This monocropping principle is
proving disastrous, and the dis-
eases now sweeping our modern
plantations are the answer. Sure-
ly the writing was already on vhe
wall, Is it true, and is. it credible
that, in the revised 10 year ro-
vation planned, groundnuts are to
follow groundnuts twice, and in
all five groundnut crops are to be
taken?

Let me give a few facts about
groundnuts frem an experienced
South Rhodesian farmer This
crop, he states, is not often seen
on new ground, and never does
one crop of groundnuts succeed
another. If this is done. alvhough



the nuts grow and appear to be a
good crop, when they come to be
harvested iv is found that the
kernels have not filled out Again,
if a heavy shower falls, the nuts
must be lifted at once or vhey
Sprout or grow mouldy. This is
why all over the East groundnuts
are grown in small lots by the
peasants; should this emergency
harvesting be necessary the whole
family can turn out—but no’ over
15,000 acres. True, combines are
to be used in
have had to be followed by glean-
ers, official, and these again by
more gleaners, unofficial, and if
any nuts are left in vhe ground
they sprout and are an intoler-
able nuisance to the succeeding
crop. Then the nuts should be
dried. This on my correspondent’s
farm is done by stooking upside
down, the nuts being thus expos-
ed to the air—labour again, and
hand labour av that.”

U.K. Takes
Action In
- Eritrea

j ERITREA, Jan. 4.

| British troops re-inforcements
{are arriving in Eritrea, and a
Warship is to be despatched soon
to. the port of Massawa, North
East of Asmara, the capital, it
was officially announced here {o-
night.

Police forces in the former Ital-
ian colony are to be substantially
strengthened, and their mobility
and striking power increased with
more transport and _ wireless
equipment. ;

Chief Administrator, Greville
Drew stated that the British Gov-
ernment was “gravely concerned
at the repeated acts of murder
and violence” in the territory re-
cently, and was determined to
suppress them.

The system of compulsory cen-
voys, introduced on November 18
as a first step towards protectins
the publie, will be continued “as
long as the need for it exists.’

Declaring that acts of terrorism
in Eritrea had been inspired by
“persons, who mistakenly believe
that they can thus influence in
their favour the decision on the
future of Eritrea,” the statement
said that the Brivish Government
had not changed its view that the
eastern provinces of Eritrps
should be ceded to Etheopia “with
adequate safeguard for the Italian
community .”

Nevertheless, the Government
cupported the United Nations
1esolution—to postpone a decision
aad to send a commission of in-
quiry to ascertain the wishes of
the people of the territory—and
would abide by it. —Reuter.

Argentine
Piigrims

VATICAN CITY, Jan. 4.

Pope Pius to-day received in
special audience 500 Argentine
pilgrims headed by Cardinal
Antonio Ceggiano Bishop of Ros-
ario Argentina.

He was accompanied by the
Bishops of Conception (Paraguay)
Sante Fe, Parana, Mendoza ani
the auxiliary Bishop of Cordoba,

The Pope addressed the pil-
grims in excellent Spanish and
recalled his visit to Argentine in

1934 as Cardinal Legate to the
Eucharistic Congress in Buenos
Aires.

Cardinal Caggiano said later he
had been profoundly impressed
by the Pope’s warm reeeption to
the pilgrimage. “It was an extra-
ordinarily affectionate audience a
wonderful meeting”, he said.

The Argentine pilgrimage wi'l
return to South America through
Switzerland, France and Spain
visiting the main religious shrines
in each country.

Dewey Opposes
Socialised Medicine
Boosts Free Enterprise

NEW YORK, Jan. 4.

Mr. Thomas E. Dewey, Govern-
or of New York, in his annual
message to the State Legislature,
to-day described socialised medi-
cine as a tool of a “Frankenstein”
government. He devoted nearly
half of his speech to an attack on
the administrations of the Fedev-
al Compulsory Health Insurance
Plan. Mr. Dewey, unsuccessful
Republican Presidential candi-
date in 1944 and 1948, charged that
President Truman’s tax and fiscal
policies were eating away the
sovereignty of the States. He
reviewed in detail what he called
New York’s “gigantic” progress in
the health and welfare fields
Within the Enterprise System
“without the taint of Socialism,”
he declared, “we have achieved
the highest health and welfare
standards in the world without
regimentation or compulsion,
without borrowing from Fascism,
Communism or Socialism.”, he
said, “it is a fact that no person
in New York State need go with-
out medical care, because he does
not have the means to pay for it,”

Wafdists
Victorious
In Egypt

2 Killed in Gun Fight

CAIRO, Wan. 4.

Wafdist “victory” demonsta-
tions began this afternoon as the
National Wafd party's big
lead in Egypt first General Elec-
tion since the war continued to
grow. z

A policeman was slightly in-
jured when several hundred pro-
Wafdist youth demonstrated out-
side the Cairo office of the anti-
Wadfist newspaper Akhbar El
Yom and broke windows.

The Wafdist scored most of its
success in the main cities and
provincial centres. The Saadis‘s,
the largest party in the outgoing
coalition, suffered big setdacks in
the surprise defeat of former
cabinet ministers and leading party
members by youthful Wafdist
candidates standing for the first
time.

Mursi Badr Bey, former Saadist
Education Minister was one of
the victims. He banned Co-
Education, ordered girl studenis
and teachers to wear long sleeved
ankle length dresses.

Polling was orderly in the big
cities, but two people were killed
in a gun-fight at the fishing vil-
lage of Edkou on the Mediterra-
nean before police intervened,

Bedouin tribesmen rode in, and
attacked frontier guards in the
Western desert near Alexandria,
when they learned that their can-
didaté had been defeated.

The final results of ti.e election
will not be known until after a
second ballet on January 10, in
constituencies where the required
majority has not been obtained.

The National Wafdist Party to-
night held 100 of the 133 seats,
for which voting results
were so far known in Egypt’s first
post-war General Election.

They had received 53 per cent.
of the first half million votes
counted. The latest results for tne
contested 319 seats of the Cham-~
ber of Deputies were:

“Wafdist 100; Independents 12;
Saadists 8; Liberal Constitution
Party 8; Nationalists 4; Socialist 1
and Kotla Party 0.

Adenauer Wants
| Foreign Credits
‘To Rebuild On Nazi Ruins

{ BONN, Jan. 4.

| West German Chancelior Dr.
{Konrad Adenauer today urgentiy
| appealed to the alhes to allow
foreign private credits to be
granted to Germany and to
make it possible to settle the
probiem of: pre-war debts. We
}shall be conironted with a ‘very
grave situaiion unless these
problems are settled within the
lirst part of the year he wld a
press conference here.

The 5,000,000 unemployed in
western Germany can only be
absorbed by a combination o1
our housing problem and grant
o1 foreign credits for reconstruc-
tion.

Dr. Adenauer said that a bal-
ance sheet showing the damage
sustained by Germany through
the war and burdens resulting
from it was being drawn up by
his government.

The losses suffered by the ex-
pelled, the bombed out, war
invalids widows and orphans
had to be faced as a whole and
not piecemeal, he added.

I am afraid the full picture
will be terrifying he said.

“The future is not too rosy.
We Germans will have to go
patiently along the uphill road
on which we started after the
catastrophe of Nazism.

The more we get on with our
werk the more we come to real-
ise the size of the world-wide
field of ruins left behind by the
Nazi regime.

Dr. Adenauer refused to give
figures on the extent of the for-
eign credits required. Comment-
ing on the settlement of German
prewar debts, he said, there
might be a need for different
forms of accommodation accord-
ing to the position of the cred-
itor.

_ Jap Loans
Drop Two Points

LONDON, Jan, 4.

Rent speculators in foreign
bonds rushed to take profits to-
day. Press comment advising
eaution touched off a wave of
profit-taking and produced losses
of one to two points in Japanese
and Greek loans. Germans
opened firm and made _ good
progress in late dealings to close
strong. This. section remained
mest active in stockmarkets and
ja fairly considerable turnover
ree reported. Fresh support for
Japanese issues was noticed in
ithe closing stages. A new account
begun on a quiet but cheerful
note. Early dealings gave firm-
ness to British funds and lead-
ing industrials. Business dried
up later however and prices
; begun to droop in idle markets.
| Most operators were awaiting a
;Government statement on Brit-
in’s gold and dollar reserves.
In the oil market, Mexican eagles
were quoted ex capital repay-
ment of six and four. Prices
showed firmness at around one
five and nine. Other oils tended
lower. —Reuter.

New Record For

| Canadian Banking

New records in the field of
Canadian banking have been
established in the annual finan-
cial statement of The Royal Bank
of Canada. Covering the twelve

|months period ending November
30, the statement shows toval as-
sets have again increased, by well
over $112,000,000 to reach $2.334,.
985,354, vhe highest in Canadian
banking his i

Since 1941 the assets of The
Royal ‘Bank of Canada have
of Unis banks partion tear

Ss on in the
remarkable business and indus-
trial expansion which has taken
place in Cand@a in recent years.
Deposits, which now total $2,192-
140.578, show an increase of
$124,000,000 over the figures of
the previous balance sheet. They
have reached the highest level

tn attained by any Canadian

—_—

Indicative of the scale of public
saving is the steady increase in
the Royal Bank’s interest-bear-
ing deposits, which have risen to
$1,060,132,600, the highest level
in the history of the bank. The
bank's interest-bearing deposits
are now over two and a half times
the 1941 figure,

The steady upward trend of
commercial loans in Canada, which
began in 1945, has continued, the
figure under this heading having
reached a total of $471,433,338.
Call loans have also increased
from $56,534,207, to $69,097,830.

The liquid position of the bank
is as usual, very strong. Liquid
assets are substantially higher
than a year ago and now stand
at $1,677,489 485, which is equal
to 76.27% of the bank's liabilities
to the public. Included in the
bank’s liquid assets are Dominion
and Provincial securities totalling
$897,338,571, an increase of $130-
424,152 as compared with the
figures in the 1948 balance sheet

Bank Premises Account has in-
creased from $11,729,957 to
$13,601,961, as a result of new
branch openings in districis re-
quiring additional banking ser-
vice, plus an extension programme
of improvements and extensions
to existing branches undertaken
during the year for the better
accommodation of the bank’s
Steadily imereasing clientele and
the resulting greater volume of
business.

Profits are higher. After the
usual deductions for Staff Pen-
sion Fund and Contingency Re-
serves, profits amounted to
$10,918 243 as compared with
$9,517,432 in the previous year.
Of this amount $4,435,000 was
set aside for Dominion and Pro-
vincial taxes, an increase of
$1,285,000 over the figures for
1948. In additio: $655,721 was set
aside for depreciation of bank
premises. After the above de-
ductions the net profit was $5,827-
521, This compares with $5 558,-

| 545 in 1948. Out of net profit,
$3,500,000 was paid in dividends

Storm’s Gift Better
Than Sugar Lady

By Bookie

to Lady’ Pink, a winner of the

Bert Williams, England and
Wolves Ikeeper, concludes his
series of articles with some sound
advice to young goalkeepers.

Watch a goalkeeper taking a
goalkick. It looks, so easy, doesn't
it? Yet there are hours of thought
and training behind it.

THE Trinidad Tu-f Club Christ- By BERT WILLIAMS

mas meeting saw a grand. climax
to a year of outstanding successe:
by two horses. A great creole filly
On the one hand and a great im-
ported ma:e on the other. I have

alrendy had something to Say
about Ocean Pearl, Mr. William
Scott’s three-year-old filly by

Flotsam out of Pearly Glow, so
I shall not repeat myself. She was
seen only once after the second
day’s racing when in a B class six
furlong she was defeated by
Fitches Greeny a winner in Ire-
land. In this event she was allow-
ing the winner no less than a full
stone and therefore her per-
formance is not without merit.
1 also believe that she was feeling
the rigours of her preparation and
the effects of two days close rac-
ing Om the first and second day of
the meeting.

Storm’s Gift

I must now deal
with is Storm’s Gift. Already I
have caused some eyebrows io
be cocked by giving it as m
opinion that she is the best mare
that Mr. Tommy Edwards has :9
far owned and therefore bette
than the famous Sugar Lady. I do
not propose to go into the whys
and wherefores of the question
at the moment but to anyone who

jut the mare

is interested enough I shall cite
my 1.easons which may ‘Ve too long
to include in this article. How-

there is now no doubt that
it is seldom that we have seen a
mare run so consistently with
such high weights at one meeting
as we saw Storm's Gift do in
Trinidad this Christmas.

Storm's Gift’s career started in
1948 and it is noticeable how long
she took to run into form. it was
not until November 1948 that she
won and then again at the Christ-

ever

mas meeting she picked up the
last event of the meeting whil
carrying light weight. After thi
she wa till not regarded as any
vorld heater Still in B at
he B i March meeting she
accounted for two at this fixture

en went on to her two mem-
orab V ries over Blue Streak
nd Atomic II at the June meet-
ing. In Barbadk in August it
was iealised what a glutton fo
work she was when a few shot
weeks after the T.T.C. Midsuin
mer event she was proved short

of work and did not run into form












until the third day of the meeting
When she took the last A Cla«s
race, In November she was thought
to be running off but as subse-
quent events | e proved she was
probably as short of work then
as she was in August. Otherwise
she would not have reaped such
a harvest at the Christmas meet-
ing

Her victory in the T.T.C. Cup,
I have already commented on
But her winning of the equiva
lent Handicap must stand out as
her best race at thi meeting
Afte; Elizalethan had set a blis-
tering pace, ably assisted in tuin
by » Streak, Determination and
finally Gun Site Storm's Giit,
with top weight of 132 Ibs., came
along and passed them all in the
stretch to win going away by a
tength and a half. Whav' I shall al-

ys regret is that I was not there
to see it. But’ yours truly had per.
foree to retire to the sanctuary of
my hotel after the first race on
the third day suffering from the
effects of that ill which is
caused by change in food and
water. However I managed to be
there on the last day and to see
herself and Gun Site fighting it
out in the last race was a fitting
climax to the meeting

Gun Site

Old Gun Site himself has earn-
ed his laurels well. I am satis-
fled that my estimate of him afte:
mis duel with The Gambler in
November is entirely correct.

What always impresses about him
is the rough handling he takes in
his races it is no exaggeration to
say that Crossley was working on
him for the last six furlongs of
the mile and 130 yards and never
once did he shirk the vask. Now
I have rated Gun Site as the best
cross of O.T.C. and Sunrise, and,
barring Atomic II vhe best colt or
gelding produced by this sire. But

even so he is still 14 lbs. below
Storm’s Gift o Monday's run-
ning

The other outstanding perform-
er in A was Blue Streak. His six
furlong in 1.15 flat was an indica-
tion that he has speed as well as

Stamina. He led from start to fin-
ish and gave no | than 15 Ibs;

cisastrous beginning.
Two Others

Should i be asked to pick out
two more outstanding performers
at the Christmas races I would
think of septembe: Song and the
lion hearted little Tiduc. Two
torses of more different stature

n hardly be imagined. The
former an extremely powerfully
built upstanding colt close on six-
teen hands or as much; the latter
1 compact diminutive little ches-
nut colt. Both were equally at
home on soft and hard going and
2oth jan well over six furlongs
ind the mile and a distance.

September Song is of course in
the imported classes. I think he
will be going much further up the
adder too as he is evidently tne
obust type and should be able
to stand up to the hard work. I
also fancy that he will go on im-
roving.

Tidue on the other hand is in
* and is already five. He looks
to be at his best now and will
herdly improve his condition, but
there is no telling where his big
heart take him. There is one
thing about him; he always gives
of his best and I just love to see
vim run.

Australia
Defeats
S. Africa

BY 8 WICKETS

CAPETOWN, Jan. 4

A fightthg century by Dudley
Nourse, the captain, failed to save
South Africa from being defeated
by Australia in the Second Test
which ended here today.

Australia won by eight wickets
to make them two up in the cur-
rent series, having won -the First
Test by an innings and 85 runs

Forced to follow on after reply-
ing with 278 to Australia’s first in-
nings of 526 for 7 declared, South
Africa were all out in their sec-
ond innings today for 333. Left
to get 86 runs in an hour and 45
minutes for victory, Australia
scored 87 for 2 in their second in-
nings with 27 minutes to spare,

By scoring a century today
Nourse equalled the South Afri-
can record of eight test centuries
held by Bruce Mitchell. He has
made six centuries against Eng-
land and two against Australia.

A Great Part

Nourse’s innings today of 114,
which occupied four hours 34
minutes and included nine hours,
played a great part in enabling
South Africa to avert an innings
defeat by 85 runs. He partnered
H. Tayfield in a seventh wicket
stand of 66 before being leg-before
to McCool,

Tayfield and

his new partner,
Norman Mann, put up a great
display when defeat looked im-
minent. Hitting out at the tiring

bowlers on a crumbling wicket,
the pair added 100 runs before be-
ing separated by Ray Lindwall

Lindwall, who did not take a
wicket in the First Test, claimed
the last five South African bats-
men to finish with figures of five
for 32 in 15 overs.

Australia went for the runs in
their second innings and scored
the required 86 in 78 minutes for
the loss of Morris and Moroney,
both being dismissed by Mann. —

If he puts that ball in the wrong
place he’s as guilty as any {for-
ward who makes a bad pass.

Some goalkeepers take an im-
mense run to kick the deaa bai.
It isn’t necessary. Take about six
or seven steps back from the ball,
then jog-trot up to it, and attempt
to drive.

Remember to keep your eye on
the ball until the moment of
impact, remember to keep the toes
well down to get “under” the ball,
ang remember to follow through.

Must Carry Through

The kick does not end at the
moment of impact. The leg must
carry through in a follow tnrougn
movement.

Don’t “toe” the ball under any
circumstances. It makes lengtn
and direction difficult, and it’s bat
for the toes! You just try it.

A goalkeeper needn’t kick all
the time. A short, well-aimed
throw to an unmarked team-mate
is often the best and quickest way
of turning defence into attack.

You need to act quickly when a
forward is coming right up tc
goal with the ball at his feet. That

have to risk injury by diving at
his feet.

Never dive face on at an op-
penent’s feet. You’re liable to hurt
yourself. Always acvance slightly
to left or to right and then dive
across.

This enables you to stop the
ball with your arms and also
leaves the goal partially blocked
by your outstretched legs.

Every footballer should under-
stand that the goalkeeper is in
complete charge of the 18-yards
area. He should be responsible for
organising line-ups and defence
against free kicks just outside the
penalty area.

I like to have a number of
players lined up shoulder tc
shoulder so that-they are guarding
one half of the goal. I can dea
with the other half.

Organise Defence

How often you see players tak-
ing up wrong, sometimes futile
positions outside the upright
during a free kick. The goalkeep-
er should cut out this waste.

You must be slick to organise
ycur defence against free kicks
Let your team mates know during
training what you expect of them
when free kicks are being taken
lear goal.

In all phases of goalkeeping re-
member this—never allow your-
self to become unsighted. If you
can’t see the ball you're useless.

Two essential items of a goal-
keeper’s equipment are gloves
and a cap. No, they’re not to keep
him warm, as some people think

The gloves are to get a good grir
on a greasy or wet ball: the cap

to shield your eyes from the
sun,

It is a good icea to have a spare
pair of woollen gloves handy in
case one pair becomes waterlogge
or too muddy to be efficient.

So there you are, young goal-
keepers. I hope you take this ad-
vice and get as much fun—and
Success—out of the game as I do
But the essence of everything you

'do on the field depends on train-

ing.
The efficiency of a player can

| be told by the manner in which}

Colonel Michelin was unanimously electei Provisional Chairman and Mr j Brome Provisional Secretary. I it was unanimously agreed that I the name of the Association I should be the Barbados Road Bafetj Aeeoetattoti There is a general diacussion which centred around the conduct of motorists, cyclists, carters and pedestrians and the increasing number of accidents Reference was made to the irresponsibility of motorists and th [ease with which licenses were obtained Licensing Authority It was suggested that in ordci to counteract this the licensing of drivers be done bv a Licensing Authority instead of the Police who would then be left I or offences and aak to the revocation if Qaceaaar) ol licenses. There should be a slmiI as that whu twenty-live years ago when every applicant for a license was subjected to a medical inspection aim an examination as to his knowledge of engines. Mr. Gooding suggested that the inspection of private mshlnlai might be instituted in order tt keep or the roads only thos* which are mechanically sound. Mr. Brome suggested that compulsory third parly insurant-* might be introduced In order tt protect the public against acci dents. Mr. MacKenzic pointed OUl that the majority of accidents -ed by carelessness ir the part of pedestrians and drivers alike Capt. Press supported this adding that bad manners was respon sible for another great portion o< iccidenls. Mr. MacKenzie said that then was only one company to hii knowledge which would hired cars and the provision wat that a chauffeur must be ir charge of the vehicle. Small Fines Colonel Mlchelin said that tht question of small lines had ton-' considered and that he was pre' pared to take up the matter with the Chief Justice and other mem:hc Ik-nth. A point was raised that the road signs now in ISM many instances badly placed. tosne ware too high and oijier? Dollars The Hard Wav r LADIES ...

BritishGuiana and the Leeward Islands, on cargoes from Scandinavia, Britain and the continent from K.'bruary 1 In spite of Sir Stafford Cripps' cheery assurance that devaluation would be in the interests of the West Indies, we now see British shipping companies no less cheerfully passing on the result of devaluation to the people of the West Indus In this newspaper three months ago it was pointed out that the cost of living woi. up in the West Indies and that only the foresight of the merchants of Bridgetown had cushioned the blow. It was Confidently expected that the price of imported food and manufactured goods would rise as soon as existing slocks had been exhausted; but few people haa realised that increased i rates would be en additional burden. Now that the expected blow has come it will mean that 111 every case new the importer wili have to increase his price on •mports to cope with the rise in !: rates,—a ten [er cent rise.

BroHii. HV IF I say that Mr. Attlee's first polIU in the New Yeai should be to disn,. Strachey from his post as Minister of Food, that is not because I dislike Mr. Strachey. I I envy no Minister, and dislike very few ol them. I say that Mr. Strachey should go f r what seem to me to be sound public reasons, i It is. of course, damaging to a Government when a Minister's policy fails or when he' makes a botch of a job, for it impugns the wisdom of his selection in the first place. That probably explains the forecast that 10 change will take place at the Mini ."ood or in the composition of the Overseas. Food Corporation Board. After the emphatic endorsement of thCj present composition of the board daring last month*! debate to alter it now would call Mr. Strachey's position sharply into ques-! tion. You can't keep on sacking subordinates without sooner or later being required to look at the boss. And the Prime Minister is said to be anxious not to change his Minister of Food with a General Election in the offing. HE HAS FAILED But if it is damaging to a Government to dismiss a Minister, it is doubly damaging f ,P*#* %  Wat IS u. in \\~ in II i tin I. i IK ,.i | a 1 per I an,,,, Kill VMM I I A It, I I I I l'l> M I ro ,!'•! ed 1 alter, i-kis i nun i • ,. loom i IIKIMII .• PINI ... ,, Bi.llle.

Suceesson Is C.S. PITCHER & CO.. LTD Phones: 4472 & 4687 to keep him on when he has demonstrably failed. The present Government have condoned too many failures and indiscretions already. When Britain was brought nearly to a standstill by a fuel crisis, which, according to Mr. Shinwell. was never going to happen, he was not sacked, but merely transferred to another Ministry. When Mr. Aneurin Bevan. while a Royal Commission was silting on the Press, publicly attacked it as "the most prostituted Press in the world" and then declined an invitation from the Commission to come forward and substantiate his statements, he was not sacked. The Prime Minister cast his skirts about him. There has been only one resignation of a senior Minister —Mr. Dalton's — and within the year he was found a new place in the Ministry. It is very damaging to a Government that the impression should grow that the Prime Minister dares not sack anyone; or that th< impression should grow that he refrains from so doing because of electoral considerations. If Mr. Strachey is retained, these impressions will be conlirmed. Politically that would harm the Government much more than a frank admission that the groundnuts scheme has gone all awry, and the appointment of a new Minister of Food to put it right. From the public interest, as distinct from the Government's credit, it is plain that the change should be made. Ministers cannot have it both ways. If. when a scheme is successful, tiny ere entitled to take the credit, as they vat ily do, they cannot when things go wrong, expect to avoid the responsibility. From the public-interest point of view, it essential that failure should be followed %  > di s mis sa l That it should be necessary to assert this elementary principle is indeed the measure of the distance we have travelled in these matters from the practice of .lays The retention of Mr. Shinwell in a Ministry after the fuel crisis; the retention of Mri Strachey after the revelation of the colossal errors and mistakes in the groundnuts scheme, would have been unthinkable In raj previous Government I can think of whatever its political complexion The principle that failures should go is more important to-day than ever. For the State is to-day responsible for the conduct of quite a large sector of the industry of Britain: mines, railways, electricity, gas. road transport and what not. ;;^-.-.^-.^-.'-,-.-.-.-.-.-,-,-.-.-.-.-.-.-,-.-,-,-,->V^.V>->-.', JAMAH'\ TOMATO Jllt'Eper tin I'KOl I HALL IIK.IM.i: JI'ICK—per till ROMAV'S i.IM .1 K RAKK BISCUITS—per In, KOMAV'S HONEY BAKE BISCTITS— per tin .
