THE PERFECT

| Burma’s

Value Increased

He believed that the accession
of the Asiatic members to the
Commonweselth had increased the
value of such consultations, par-
ticularly where decisions had to
be made on the Far East’. Pear-
son reiterated his statements that
Canada was unlikely to recognise
the Chinese Communisis until he
returned home in mid-February.

The discussion on recognition
led delegates to analyse the posi-
tion in the United Nations Se-
curivy Council, where the Chinese
Nationalist Delegate, Dr. T.. F
Tsiang, is due to take over the
chair today.

Some observers believed that
Russia would be faced with a
dilemma—eivher she must modify
her position on the veto or defeat
her own aims in the Security
Council.

If the question of China’s rep-
resentation were wreated as one
of “substance,” Dr, Tsiang would
be able to perpetuate his Gov-
ernment representation of apply-
ing the vet.

A communique after today’s
session said: The Conference had
considered the recognition of the
new Chinese regime and also
future relations of Commonwealth
countries with China.

Discrimination

Reuter’s correspondent in Dur-
ban writes: The greatest danger
to Commonwealth relavions, peace
and progress comes “not from
Communism but from preaching
and practising racial discrimina-
tion,’ the South African Indian
Congress declared in a cable today
to heads of all delegavions at the
Colombo Commonwealth Confer-
ence.

The cable, also sent to Mr.
Philip Noel-Baker, British Min-
ister of Commonwealth Relations,
and Mr. Malcolm MacDonald,
British Commissioner General in
South Easv Asia, added: “Union
nationals of Asian origin are de-
nied any kird of political rep-
resentation, are discriminated
against in the nation’s economic
life and barred from entering
educational institutions and even
public libraries, all on racial
grounds.

“No country can survive on
such rotten foundations and no
Commonwealth of Nations which
ignores these facts can make any
contribution vo peace and pro-
gress.”’—Reuter.

War Crimes
At 14?

HELSINKI, Jan. 10.

“War crimes” at the age of 14
are alleged against a Finnish gir)
in the Russian memorandum to
Finland demanding she extradite
300 persons for trial in the Soviet
Union, circles close to the Minis-
try of the Interior said to-day.
The Finnish authorities are keep-
ing the name of the girl secret.
Now 21, the girl is living in Bukk,
North West Finland. The Fin-
nish authorities took her into their
eare when her home in eastern
Narellia was burned down in the
fighting there in 1941.

Later she married a Finn thus
automatically requiring Finnish
nationality. Three months ago
she had her first child. She was
described as “prostrate” at the |
prospect of trial as a war criminal |
in Russia. |

The Ministry of the Interior to- |
day circulated to police stations |
in Finland lists of 56 of the 300 |
persons who were desctibed in the
memorandum as “guilty of a par- |
ticularly grave crime against the |
Soviet Union.” Five of these per- |
sons are already in _ custody.
Others. are expected to be arrest-
@d soon.

Ex-Brunswick
ti e
Head On. Trial
BRUNSWICK, Jan. 10.

The trial of Dietrich Klagges
former Nazi Minister, President
of Brunswick and an S.S. Gen-
eral began before a German Court
here to-day.

Klagges is charged with mur-
der and maltreatment of political
prisoners, crimes against human-
ity and racial persecution.

The trial regarded as the big-
gest in lower Saxony since the
war is expected to last about
three months,

The prosecution has called al-
most 250 witnesses. More than
3,000 witnesses have already been
questioned since investigation
started immediately after the
war.

Klagges, interned since the end
of the war, appeared fit when he
entered the courtroom.

Charges brought against
Klagges date back to 1933, when
Brunswick became notorious for
the cruelties committed against
political opponents of the Nazi
regime. i

A letter by Gestapo Chief,
Heinrich Himmler, said the “ac-
tions of Klagges in Brunswick in
1933 have by far exceeded the re-
quired scope.”

In 1933 Klagges removed the
Burnswick Minister President, a
member of the Right Wing De-
futche Nationale Volkspartei
(German National Peoples Party)
and took over his position.

He remained Minister
dent until 1945.

A Majer Disaster

THE breakdown in the negotiations
between the West Indian sugar delegates
and the Ministry of Food is a disaster of
the greatest magnitude for West Indian
sugar production. For Barbados it is a
desperate situation. The remedy lies in
the promotion of other sources of revenue
for the support of two hundred thousand
people which, in as far as this island is
concerned, is almost impossible.

Six months ago delegates representing
the West Indian Sugar Producers went to
London asking that inasmuch as the old
agreement by which the British Govern-
ment purchased all the exportable surplus
of West Indian sugar would expire in 1952
it would be desirable to draw up a new
contract, The terms asked for in the new
agreement was that there should be a
remunerative price paid for West Indian
sugar over a period of ten years. This,
West Indian producers believed, would
provide impetus and time for the expansion
of the industry. x

The first part of the negotiations ended
in August last and it was confidently ex-
pected that these demands would have
been met. The British Government had
promised to give close consideration to
the claims of West Indian interests whose
standards of living they were endeavour-
ing to raise.

Meanwhile Australia, South Africa,
Fiji and Mauritius decided to send dele-
gates to the sugar talks which were there-
by raised to Commonwealth level, In
November the West Indian delegates re-
turned to London. But from the beginning
their prospects looked black.

The long story of stalling, and going back
on its earlier assurance by the Ministry
of Food is well known by readers of this
newspaper.

Although devaluation had hit the West
Indies in the meantime the Ministry of
Food hardened its heart. It was clear
that an increased price for West Indian
sugar would mean an increase however
small in the cost to the British worker
The General Elections are in the offing
and the Food Minister, Mr. Strachey, was
not prepared to risk even a small loss in
the popularity of the British Labour
Party. So he refused to grant the demands
of West Indian sugar producers.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies
Mr. Creech Jones threw in his weight
with the delegation asking for better
terms; but although the Ministry of Food
has entered an agreement with the Aus-
tralian Government it has offered the
West Indies only the opportunity to supply
630,000 tons of sugar per annum at the
old price.

Even though the delegation pointed out
that sugar provided its own fuel, main-
tained the fertility of the soil, resisted
long droughts, was least affected by hur-
ricanes as compared with bananas, cocoa
and cocoanuts, and provided employment
for more people per acre than any other
food crop, the West Indies have been once
more pushed aside.

Despite the pleading of the Lord Bishop
of Barbados, Lord Milverton, Socialist and
Conservative M.P.s and representatives of
workers and employers throughout the
West Indies, we have lost.

The Ministry of Food under a t.abour
Government in Great Britain has done the
greatest disservice to the West Indies.
And this in the fase of support from a
Conservative Opposition in Parliament
that there should be some consideration
given to the claims of the West Indian
Sugar industry if the standard of living
in these colonies is to be raised,



mene tens rae = me

THERE is a story in every cir-
cus; sometimes it is of love, some_
times of heroism or sacrifice, and
sometimes of tragedy.

When Togare, the handsome
tiger-trainer, saved six lions from
fire at Birmingham a few years
ago, he was not actually obliged
to do it,

Yet, not satisfied with having
saved them from near death, he
entered their cages and smeared
their coats with 14lbs. of butter
to save damage to their skins.

This is the spirit of the circus.

Alfredo Codona was a Mexi-
can, born at Harmosillo, Lorosa,
in the early ‘nineties.

His father was a circus proprie-
tor, and Alfredo had a flair for
the flying trapeze.

He made his first appearance,
with his father as “catcher,” with
Wirth Brothers’ Circus in Aus-
tralia.

Apart from his intense love
affairs Alfredo had one great
ambition: to be the first man to
perform a triple somersault in
the air.

In 1917 he partnered his
younger brother, Lalo, in a flying
trapeze act with Clara Curtain, a
beautiful girl and an expert in
the air.

Alfredo had thrown her across
the chasm of the ring many times
to be caught by his brother before
the day he knew he had fallen
in- love,

A Daring Performer
THEY married and worked
together until Clara realised that
Alfredo’s affections were waning
She threatened to leave him
and break up the act. It all ended
in divorce,

For a time Alfredo was discon-
solate, but he recovered when he
saw, on the same programme as
himself, the reigning beauty of
the circus, Lillian Leitzel.

She was a aaring performer on
the White Rope and Roman rings.

Up near the roof of Madison
Square Garden she whirled, the
spotlights projecting her body
against the dimness of the sur-
rounding space.

Suspended by a single white
rope on a Roman ring 55 feet
above the ground, she swung to
and fro,

Then, hanging by one hand,
she went into a body whirl of a
hundred revolutions.

Book Review:

THE HISTORY OF SUGAR, Vol.
I, By Noel Deerr (Chapman &
Hall 50/-).

FOR Barkadians the staff of
life is not bread, but sugar, and
directly or indirectly it has been
the support of everyone in the
Island for some 300 years. The
history of the industry will there-
fore be of the greatest interest to
all who live in Barbados, and I
can fully recommend Mr. Deerr’s
book as being the most compre-
hensive treatise on the history of
sugar yet written,

Together with fruits, homey

sugar to primitive man, except
) Where, in restricted areas, the

bounty of nature had presented
man with the sugar-carie and the
| sugar palms, For the home of the
sSugar-cane we must iook at the
folklore of the south Pacific. The
author quotes a charming little
story which provides evidence of

Oe
eee

its very early presence in those
regions: “In New Britain two
fishermen, To-Kabwana and To-
Karvuvu (To is the Polynesian

for sugar-cane), found one day in
their net a piece of cane. This
they threw away, but recovered
on the second day and again on
the third day, after which they
kept and planted it. One day the
cane burst and a woman came
forth. She cooked food for the
men and at night hid herself in
the cane. On occasion she was
captured and became the wife of
one of the men. From their union
sprany the whole human race
The first canes brought to the
New World were of a_ variety
kndwn as the Puri or Creole cane,
and they were brought by Colum-
bus on his second western voy-
age in 1493. Then with the Span-
ish Conquistadores and the Port-
uguese Donatorios, its spread was
rapid, the extreme western limit
of introduction being Peru. In
1611 the Bermudas were granted
to the Virginia Company, and here
in 1616 was planted the first sugar-
cane to be grown in the British
Empire. But the island was not
really suited for sugar-cane culti-
vation, and although sugar was





Romance On
Trapeze

By W. Buchanan-Taylor

The number of revolutions were
ealled off by the ringmaster, and
Lillian would slide down the rope,
apparently unaffected by her
labours.

She was the “Queen of the Air,”
and Alfredo Codona watched and
admired her.

Now he was billed, justifiably,
as “King of the Air,” for he had
already achieved his triple somer_
sault,

Alfredo wooed Lillian.

Soon she began to wait in the
“wings” while he performed his
triple somersault. She was always
anxious, for she knew that of the
four other gymnasts who had
attempted it, three had been
killed.

She Crashed
EVENTUALLY they married.
They fixed engagements on the

same bill, and travelled in the
United States, Great Britain,
South America, Spain, Italy, and
Germany. Not a flaw marred the
union.

One week they were engaged
at Copenhagen. Codona seemed
inspired. Lillian’s feats were
breath-taking.

But on a night in the Danish
capital the rope by which Lillian
hung broke,

The Roman ring parted in the
middle of her 100 revolutions.
She crashed to the ground.

The audience saw her body
earried from the ring; and she
died in a few minutes,

Codona, broken-hearted, gave
up work; the tragedy preyed on
his mind. He was, however, some.
thing of a sculptor, and so deep
was his affection for his wife that
he carved a statue in her memory.

He died at Long Beach, Calh-
fornia, and his body was laid to
rest next to the statue of Lillian.

Shot An Apple From
Wife's Head

THIS is the story of Hopper,
an artist who was known through_
out the circus world as “William
Tell.”

Three times a day he shot an
apple from the head of his pretty
wife, standing on the other side
of the ring.

For years they lived happily
travelling across the world, enter_
taining thousands. So accurate
was “William Tell” that many
believed the act was nothing more

actually made in 1669, the indus~
try never flourished.

The distinction for being the
pioneer of the British sugar indus-
try belongs to Barbados, An ex-
tract from Major Scott, who wrote
in 1667, gives a good summary of
the introduction of the sugar in-
dustry to Barbados. “After this

(1641) in the government of Bar-
bados, and to tais time the island
was but in ordinary condition
though full of inhabitants having
a great dependence on _ tobacco,
some cotton and ginger, though
sugar-cane had been had from
Brazil a few years before by an
accident, and was first planted
by one Coll. Holdup, who was the
first that made sugar in Barbados,
but it came to little till the great
industry and more thriving genius
of Sir James Drax engaged in that
great work, who brought Col-
lonell Holdup’s essay to such
great perfection, that many more
were encouraged to undertake
the making of sugar, which has
proved of extraordinary advan-
tage to the English nation... ”

The first period of sugar manu-
facture in Barbados was one of
great prosperity, but after about
a generation there was a partial
failure. Littleton writing in 1690,
dates the beginning of the period
of distress from the time of the
imposition in 1685 of the emergent
additional duty on sugar of 2s. 4d.
per ewt. A French writer, Butler
Dumont, records that in 1689 in
Barbados as many as forty estates
were abandoned.

An important discovery was
made in 1858 when Iran Aeus, an
employee of Highlands estate,
Barbados, saw and_ recognised
cane seedlings growing in a field
of ratoon cane, thus definitely es-
tablishing the fertility of cane
seed, He told the owner of the
estate, James W. Parris of his
discovery, and Mr. Parris wrote a
letter to the Barbados Liberal on
February 8th, 1859, so putting the

than a carefully prepared piece
of mechanism.

But it was, in fact, a case of
brilliant marksmanship. Hopper
was deadly.

As they were preparing for the
ring one night, Mrs, Hopper was
called out of the dressing-room.

Hopper spotted a folded note
on her dressing-table. It was a
letter from a secret lover.

Ten minutes later they were
doing their act. She went to her
usual place and there were the
customaty preliminaries.
Boldly the wife placed the apple
on her head. Hopper drew his
bow and the arrow sped across
the ring.

For once, the bowman aimed
inaccurately, The arrow entered
her brow.

She fell dead. It was an acci-
dent, said the jury.

Two Brothers

THE “Three Sylvains” were an
act composed of two brothers—
Adolph and Wilhelm—and Helena
a gorgeously formed creature who
was cast in mid-air by the
brothers.

They had trained Helena and
both fell in love with her.

The triangle became tangled
when she favoured the younger
brother, Adolph. But Wilhelm
was the more desperately in love.

One day Wilhelm saw Adolph
and Helena arm in arm gazing
into a store window.

He asked for an explanation.

The two brothers quarrelled
and threatened to split the part-
nership.

Helena made peace, but Wil-
helm brooded. He sought solace
in drink.

Soon the effect was to show
itself. Wilhelm’s judgment and
timing became faulty.

One night, Wilhelm, misjudging
time and distance, failed to seize
his brother’s outstretched arms
and fell.

A doctor ran to him. Wilhelm
had broken his back. His career
was ended.

Adolph came down from the
heights under the dome, and
knelt beside his brother.

Next morning Adolph, grief-
stricken, was discovered dead
from poisoning at his hotel.

He had committed suicide.

observation on record. Although
the announcement made by Mr.
Parris was copied into the Produce
Markets Review and into the Aus-
tralian press, it attracted little at-
tention and was soon forgotten.
But the matter was re-opened in
1888 when Mr. J. B, Pilgrim, an
overseer at Dodd’s Reformatory,
reported to the Superintendent,
Mr. J. R. Bovell, that he had seen
“fine grasses” springing up in a
field of cane,



“There is one remarkable and
unique feature of the sugar indus-
try in Barbados” writes Mr. Deerr,
“While in its earlier years its
factories were of then normal size,
it maintained its production with
no increase in the size of its fac-
tories or departure from primitive
methods. Once the resort of the
early capitalists, the movement
towards larger factories and the
use of steam and of vacuum boil-
ing left Barbados unmoved and it
became a colony of self-contained
properties, of individual propri-
etors, and still kept a substantia]
degree of prosperity.”

In 1849 there were still 508
plantations, only reduced to 329
by 1911, of which 220 were still
using windmills. But the change
came soon afterwards, and in
1937 there were only thirty dark

crystal and twelve muscavado
factories. Now there are even
fewer,

In other chapters’ the author
deals with the sugar industries of
India, China and the Far East,
the Mediterranean, and of the
various colonies in the Pacific
and the Caribbean. There are
many illustrations, most of them
being reproductions of very rare
old prints, and there are also
contemporary diagrams of early
sugar mills. “The History of
Sugar” will undoubtedly become
a permanent work of reference
for all those interested in the
production and handling of sugar
and indeed for anyone requiring
information concerning the his-
tory of this. important industry,










FROM the Spring-gardens Galleries,
London, to the United Services Club, Luek-
now, to the City Hall Gallery of Durban
and thence to the Jacoby Galleries of Mont-
real adds up to an almost astronomical total
of miles; but Mrs. Dorothy McAvity,
F.R.S.A., has exhibited her pictures at these
centres of art, and many others. During)
the coming weekend she will add the Bar-
bados Drill Hall to the list. ,

Mrs. McAvity, a Nova Scotian by birth, is
probably better known as a painter outside
her native Canada than within. She main-
tained a studio in London for many years
which formed a meeting place for people
well known in the world of arts and letters
and among her sitters have been members
of the Royal Family and many celebrities in
the Armed Services, Society and Administra-
tion, Not limited, however, to portraiture she
is equally facile at expressing her genius in
landscapes and subject pictures.

“THAT’S JOLLY ,GOOD”

An experience shared by few artists befell
her when she was commissioned to paint
Queen Mary and the Duke of Windsor, when
the Duke was Prince of Wales. Both pictures
attracted a great deal of attention in London|
and many of Queen Mary’s personal friends,
including the Marchioness of Salisbury, de-
scribed Her Majesty’s portrait as being one
of the best likenesses ever done of the sub-
ject.



Naval uniform and the picture was repro-
duced in the Strand Magazine, the Sphere,
Mirror and Graphic, the Strand printing it
in full colours. On completion of this portrait
Mrs. McAvity was invited to bring it to St.
James Palace in person, where the Prince
insisted on undoing the bindings and strip-
ping off the wrapping paper himself. Holding
up the picture he exclaimed characteristi-
cally, “Oh, I say—that’s jolly good”.

Among a long list of other sitters have
been : Viscount Falkland, Lady Lloyd-
Graeme, wife of the President of the Board
of Trade, General Sir James Wilcocks, when
Governor of Bermuda, the Countess of Clan-
carty and General Sir David Campbell, when
Governor of Malta.

Mr: R. R. Tatlock, editor of the Burlington
Magazine and art critic of the Daily Tele-
graph wrote this of her ability as a portrait
painter: “She has a remarkable gift for get-
ting on her canvasses not only the super-
ficial features but the internal psychology
of her many distinguished English sitters.
She is the sort of portraitist who can, as it
were, say a great deal in a few words,” Of
the painting of Gen. Sir David Campbell, Mr.
Tatlock wrote: “Very few other painters
could have realised in paint the essential
shrewdness, as expressed in his features, of
this man. The artist interprets his character
inimitably and takes us, through her talent
and her genius, into his spiritual presence,
Of all our Dominions, Canada has produced
the best art, and there is no doubt that one

lof Canada’s ablest artists is Dorothy Mc-
Avity.” Mrs, McAvity’s achievements were
recognized in 1946 when she was elected a
F.R.S.A.

LOCAL PORTRAITS

Mrs. McAvity’s exhibition is to be held at
the Drill Hall on Saturday and Sunday next
and the proceeds have been most generously
donated to the Barbados S.P.C.A. To add to
this tree landscapes have been donated to
the S.P.C.A., one for raffling and two for sale
by silent auction. Of particular local interest
will be the portraits of two well known Bar-
badian ladies which will be on view.

Expel The Nationalists

A demand from the Chinese Communist Govern-
ment that the Nationalist delegates be expelled
from the United Nations Security Council was
received at United Nations Headquarters at Lake
Success today, it was reported by Reuter,

The demand made in a cablegram from Peking
on January 8 was signed by Chou En-Lai, the
Communist Foreign Minister. The cable, addressed
to Mr. Trygve Lie, Secretary General, and the
members of the Council, said : “This is to inform

To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—The attack by your cor-
respondent “C.R.”"on the British
Council is unjustified. Is the British
Council “presenting an undue
amount of the British way of liv-
ing to these quarters”? It does
not appear so. Indeed, is not the
way of life of this island modelled
on the British way?

We should .be grateful to the
British Council for filling the
gaps so long left open.

Your Correspondent does not
think that the West Indies are
without, art or beauty; if by beau-
ty he means beauty of nature, I
agree with him, but where is
the art? I am unaware of the
existence of an Art Gallery in any
West Indian colony. In Barbados
the interiors of homes do not dis-
play much sign of taste or beauty.
The pictures of even well to do
Barbadians are usually poor re-
productions, prints. or watercol-
ours. No local artist could make
a living by selling his works to
fellow Barbadians, and the at-
tendance at art exhibitions is de-
pressing.

4 It is necessary in Art Educa-
tion to begin from scratch, since



few Barbadians have had the op-
portunity of visiting the Picture
Galleries of Europe or the United
States. Constructive criticism is
needed, but Barbadians are no-
toriously unable to stand criti-
cism, which, if it is delivered by
a non-Barbadian amounts almost
to treason. This does not prevent
Barbadians from being highly
critical of each other and even
more of non-Barbadians.

The British Council has grant-
ed scholarships to West Indians
in cases where it has thought it
would be beneficial, doubtless
more will be granted in the course
of time. Some have, therefore,
received a forward push of which
your correspondent seems un-
aware.

Longer Hours for Teachers
To the Editor, The Advocate,



SIR,—Why such an ado over
our Elementary Schools, wher
our inspired first Director with
quick eye discovered the syst
was progressing correctly

that the majority of the Second
ary Schools needed his guidanc:
more?



This progressive age has caused
parents to be over anxious about
their children’s progress in the
early years, but Education is a
slow, process and any cramming or
over-burdening of subjects must
retard real progress.

Parents are looking daily for
that old time brilliance or accu-
racy of certain facts which they
had to exhibit, at the point of the
rod or strap, as a sign of learning
in their day. They can’t under-
stand that the whole educational
system throughout the world has
changed from producing a finished
product in the Elementary School,
to developing the brain of the
child to produce and see valuable
and great things later in his life.

I am sure that the majcrity of
our Elementary Schools, js still
producing good and -¢x-ellent
results as compared with Jhe years
past; but some teachers inexperi-

enced, are looking fur finished
products to teach, ‘and some
parents are work ruracies by T 1€

Castries Reconstruction
Is Progressing

ST. LUCIA is continuing with reconstruction, the

programme for which is working to schedule.

Hon’ble

A. C. H. Baynes, the colony’s Treasurer, told the Advocate

yesterday. ;

Mr. Baynes was an arrival on
Sunday by B.W.I.A. for the
Customs Union Talks and is stay-
ing at the Hastings Hotel.

He said that the Estimates for
1950 were passed on Dece,aber 8
by the Legislative Council and
showed a total revenue including
expenditure from Colonial Devel-
opment and Welfare schemes of
$2,672,863. Of that amount, C.D.
and W. schemes accounted for
$766,961 against which there was
an estimated expenditure of
$2,484,985, thus showing a surplus
on the year’s working of $187,878.

At “he end of 1949, there was
an estimated deficit of $470,000
mainly due to effects of the fire,
and the importation soon after
the fire through an error of sur-
plus reinforcing steel bars of over
1,000 tons which cost the Goy-
ernment nearly $300,000.

Ordinances

In December 1949, the follow-
ing Ordinances were passed:
Amendment to the Customs Tar-
iff increasing the import duty on
manufactured tobacco, cigarettes
and cars imported from the Unit-
ed Kingdom; (b) increasing the
rate of collection of trade duty
on spirits from 2/2 to 4/- per gal-
lon; (c) revising the rates in the
upper brackets on Succession Du-
ties; (d) increasing the rates of
income tax on company tax from
6/- to 6/6 in the pound and (e)
a consolidated ordinance revising
the rates of rural house tax and
at the same time introducing for
the first time in the history of the
colony, land tax.

The tax on land was introduced
purely as an instrument of policy
and not as.a fiscal measure.

Despite the reconstruction of
Castries, every effort was being
matle to develop the resources of
the colony. No action was how-
ever being taken for the next two
years or so during the reconstruc-
tion of Castries on schemes, which
were not of a productive nature
or ancillary to production.

Efforts were at present being
concentrated to develop the bana-
na industry, but the results would
not be seen for sometime to come.

Largely through the efforts of
His Honour the Administrator,
Members of the Legislative Coun-
cil, The Agricultural Superintend-
ent and the Adviser to the Secre-
tary of State, by the establish-

ment of experimental fish ponds
at the Union Agricultural Station,
it is hoped to increase the fish
resources of the colony.

For that purpose, a special spe-
cie and type of fish was imported
at comparatively low cost from
Malaya and the experiment show-
ed signs of great potentialities,
especially in areas where the
catches of that valuable and cheap
commodity were inadequate to
meet the needs of the communi-
ties. Such an experiment tended
to clear in due course, areas that
were likely to be overrun with
malaria.

Activities in the Public Works
Department will be necessarily
curtailed in 1950, with the excep-
tion of expenditure on two ex-
traordinary necessary items and
a slight increase in road pro-
grammes, mainly for maintaining
and opening up byesroads into the
interior of the colony.

The rebuilding of the town of
Castries is being supervised by
Colonial Development Corpora-
tion who are the agents of the
Government of St. Lucia, and as-
sociated with them for carrying
out the work is a reputable Eng-
lish firm of contractors (Holland
& Hannan and Cubbits).

Contractors’ Quarters

They had already constructed
living quarters for their contrac-
tors, houses for the poorer classes
at Vide Bouteille, a suburb of
Castries, and were now construct-
ing in Castries proper, several
maisenettes for the lower income
groups and the Customs transit
shed.

During the year 1949, an oiled
15 ft. carriageway between Den-
nery and Vieux Fort approxi-
mately 18 miles, was completed
by Messrs, J. N. Harriman and
Co., Ltd., contractors of Port-of-
Spain, Trinidad.

Three large storage tanks for
storing gasoline, kerosene and gas
oil were also completed at La Toc
about a mile from Castries by the
Trinidad Petroleum Marketing Co.
(West Indies) Ltd. and those
tanks will shortly be in operation.

About the middle of 1949, the
United States base at Beanefield

about 40 miles from Castries was |,

deactivated by the United States
authorities and all fittings and in-
stallations were purchased by the
St. Lucia Government.

St. Vincent
Has Deficit
Of $110,000

The passing of the Estimates by
the St. Vincent Legislature on
December 12, showed that they
have budgeted for a deficit of
approximately $110,000, Hon’ble
V. Archer, the colony’s Treasurer
told the Advocate yesterday.

He said that they were hoping
to offset that deficit by a surplus
carried forward from 1949 as well
as by the introduction of one or
two minor“faxation measures such
as certain increases in stamp

Mr. Archer came in on Sunday
by B.W.1.A. for the Customs Talks
and is staying at the Hastings
Hotel.

He said that agricultural ex-
pansion in St. Vincent was pro-
gressing rapidly and the Land
Settlement Development Scheme
which was being operated in the
Leeward section of the island,
offered most favourable indications
of success. Also, owing to their
energetic Administrator, His
Honour W. F. Coutts, M.B.E., a
salt and salt fishing industry in
the St. Vincent Grenadines was
being vigorously undertaken.

Public Works extraordinary ac-
tivities had been necessarily
curtailed owing to the adverse
revenue prospects for 1950, but
essential maintenance works had,
however, been provided for as well
as a restricted continuation of the
road improvement programme on
the windward section of the
island.

some other reason.

This agent does not expect any
action to be taken by owners of
rented houses until the Vestries
ilay their rates in March. Al-
, though the tax has been abolish-
ed, it was not stated as a fact
that it would be placed on the
owners,

It will be the duty of the Ves-
tries to decide from what source
or sources they will raise the
revenue that has come from
Occupancy Tax heretofore, The!
Agent expressed the view, how-
ever, that if the tax is placed
on the owners, it is almost inevi-
table that rents will be increased.

No renter interviewer by the|
“Advocate” disagreed with the|
abolition of the tax. On the con-
trary they were unanimous in
their detestation of it. Most. of
phem did not mind if the owner







raised rents to the extent justi-
fied by his having to pay
extra tax, but they feared the
unscrupulous landlords would
go beyond what was justifiable.
In this connection the view
| was expressed that it was high
time that Rent Restriction
islation was introduced.

penny and half-penny are included in a fine collection of
coins of local interest presented to the Barbados Museum
by Count Alexandre Orlowski who is paying a visit to

The collection includes a num-
ber of Barbadian copper coins in
mint condition of 1788 and 1792.
An interesting specimen is the
farthing issued by Thomas Law-
ler & co., General Merchants of
11 Broad Street. These were of
the type known as token coins.

Another example of the token
coinage takes the form of a farth-
ing and half-penny issued by
Moses Tolanto, a Jewish merchant
of Barbados. On one side there is
engraved a hogshead with the
initials of the merchant—M. T.
and on the other side, the words
“Freedom without slavery’.

There are also French coins of
the Windward Islands struck
during the reign of Louis XV and
coins of Antigua, British and
French Guiana.

King Edward VIII’s name ap-
pears on British West African
coins, British New Guinea, East
Africa and Fiji dated 1936 but
these were never circulated. The

Shortage
Relieved

The kerosene ol) shortage of
last week has now been relieved.
Messrs. General Traders Lid., and
Messrs R. M, Jones & Co., Ltd.,
agents of the Shell Company and
Esso Company respectively, told
the Advocate yesverday that with
the unloading of the tanker Rufina
on Saturday, no time was lost on
Sunday in making as many de-
liveries as possible. This, they
said, has been going on steadily.

Some shopkeepers said vnat as
yet they have not got their_supply
for the week but no undue de-
mand is being made on the little
vhey have. This they said is very
likely, due to the fact that people
can get their requirements from Ss
other sources who have already
got vheir quota.

Some individuals said that they
were not yet able to get all the
oil they wanved but the situation
was certainly not as difficult as
last week.

At Messrs Fort Royal Garage

“The fuel is still being steadily

The station had received a supply

1950 Yacht Se

Brings Out New Boats [nteresti

WHEN the first Regatta of the coming Yachting Season

opens on Saturday, January

21, lovers of this sport will be

some new boats in action. :

The season shows signs of being a very promising one
with the new Centre Board Class boats amalgamated with
the regular ‘C’ Class boats. The Centre Boards boats are
of the Lightning and Seagull type.

In the ‘B’ Class there are
three new entires. One, the
“Resolute”, which has been beach-
ed for many years, is owned by
Owen Burke and will be sailed by
Hammond Burke. The “Undine”
is now being reconditioned and
it is that it will join in
the Regattas shortly. It is owned
by Teddy Hoad and will be sailed
by his son Tony.

Another new entry to this
Class is the “Circe”, owned by Dr.
J. W. Harkness. This boat was
built in Barbados but was carried
to Trinidad where it did some
sailing. It was recently brought
back to the island. Dr. Harkness
will sail the boat himself.

Regular Entries

The other boats are the regular
entries, but in some cases repairs
have been made and the boats
are expected to give improvea
performances.

Lester Toppin'’s “Gipsy” has
been fitted with a new suit o!
sails and it is expected that this
boat will display some oe
sailing. Stanton Toppin’s “Mts-
chief” has had some minor alter-
ations which should be an asset.

It is regrettable that this Class
will be losing the “Shamrock”, a
type of sister yacht to the “Mis-
chief,” and “Gipsy”. The
“Shamrock” has been sold and wil!
not be competing in the series.

Teddy Hoad’s Star boat “Fan-
tasy” has also been fitted with a
new suit of sails. Also receiving
a new suit of sails is the “Commo-
dore”, Mr. J. H. Wilkinson's,
“Moyra Blair”. Both boats are
expected to sail better this season

Eieven boats are entered in the
Combined ‘C’ and Centre Boara
Class. In the ‘C’ section there
is the “Wizard II” which was
recently built by Jim Jones and
is moored off the Reef.

New Type

In the Centre Board section, the
“Rogue,” a new Lightning type
boat built by Gerald Nicholls, is
entered. Another new Lightning
class boat is the “Scamp”, whic!
is owned and was built »b)
Leonard Archer. The “Folly”, &
thoroughly reconditionei Sea-
gull class boat is also entered. 1
is owned by Lester Toppin and wil
be sailed by his sons, Bert anc
Pat.

Also new to the Combined “C”
Class is Colin Bellamy’s ‘“Magwin’
which , has been

promoted from | Smith,
the Intermediate Class owing 10} jiarns,

Cup will be raced for as usual at
the end 67 the series.

At the end of the tenth and final
Regatta last season the results
were: 3’ Class 1. War Cloud,
71.25%, 2. Moyra Blair, 70.45%,
3. Okapi, 70%.

‘C’ Class: 1. Astra, 16.27%, 2.
Gannet, 75.47%, 3. Ranger, 55.67%.

Intermediate Class; 1. Magwin,
75%, 2. Coronetta, 70.24%, 3.
Dauntless, 66.20%.

‘D’ Class: 1. Peter Pan, 80.77%,
), Sinbad, 74.36%, 3. Dawn, 71.43%.

When the Frontena¢ Cup was}
sailed for last season, 29 boats;

‘T

entered. The race was won by}
the “Invader”, with the second}
md third places going to the;
“Clytie’? and “Magwin’ respec- |
tively |

Mr. Péter Ince, owner of the}
‘Gannet”, and a member of the

Sailing Committee, is of the opin- |
on that more yachtsmen should be |
mterested in the one-designed |
Centre Board boats after they
have seen them in action this
season.

He said that they had formed a}
Centre Board Class comprising of
Seagulls and Lightnings, but owing
to the scarcity of entries in the
regular ‘C’ Class, these two ssieee'’
had to be amalgamated |

He said that Svecial Prizes will |
be awarded to the Centre Board |
boats at the ending of the season
for the best performances.

Centté Board boats re built |
from imported plan Mr. Ince’s |
boat is one of the oldest Centre

Board boats racing and is built off |

Hy B. M.

John Douglas Goddard, just
named Captain of the West Indies
cricket team for the third time
in his comparatively short cricket!
career is an outstanding example
of what can be accompiished by
grit and determination, linked
with native ability. He was born
on April 21, 1919, and therefore,
incidentally celebrates his birth-
day at the same time as Princess
Elizabeth. He is the last of nine
boys,—and boys who always lik-
ed and played their cricket well.
One brother Dr. A. L. Goddard
was once a stalwart of Pickwick
C.c. and another brother, Cecil
W. Goddard, nicknamed Bedelia
(after a West Indian race horse)
because of his speed on the crick-
et and football field represented
British Guiana, in the first named
game, And the Pickwick Club,
which produced W.I, cricket
names like Tim Tarilton, and
Teddy Hoad, now numbers al)
the Goddards in its roll of meim-
vers.

So John is but following a
tradition. At the age of 10, he
was a schoolboy force to be

reckoned with at Harrison College
vith his left handed batting, and
right arm bowling.

A Youngster

3ut it was at Lodge Sci.ool
where he went in 1933, that he
attracted attention, not only by
his cricketing ability but by his
all round athletic prowess, A
fine turn of speed, which is still
one of his many assets, enabled
him to stand out, in the wing
position, on the football fieid
and also to notch record honours

| by winning the 100 yards events

Inter-School games

“giants”. He has also done

speed, plus a keen eye, and a fine
sense of: anticipation, also made

So it was thus equipped thai!
young John Goddard made his
debut in the intercolonial cricke!
arena, when he was selected to re-
present Barbados in Trinidad at
the age of 17. This was in January
1937, and in September the same
year, he was a member of the
Barbados teal which went to
British Guiana. His first appear-

ance, a’ the historic Kensington
Oval was in 1939, but then he was
only 12th man.

Five years later, the same
Kensington was the scene of his
greatest batting triumph to date
when he partnered Frankie
Worrell in a world record-
breaking 4th wicket partner-
ship of 502. John’s share was
218 and Frankie's 308.

Goodwill Tours

After 1939, the year in which
World War No. 2 starved, big
cricket in these islands took the
form of Goodwill tours and these
gave Goddard full opportunity vo
display his wares. In 1942, on the
second of these tours to Trinidad
he got a fighting 98 not our, of
total of 199 made by thé Barbados
side. Here he displayed his dow
fighting qualities, remaining un-
ruffled and undismayed as_ his
colleagues came and went,

In 1943 his bes’ score was 101
again not out, and 1944 saw him
in all his pristine glory at Ken-
sington. It was in February agains
Trinidad that he and Worrell kepi
the fielders busy for two whole
days. John Goddard had arrived
with a vengeance, and had carved
a niche for himself in West Indies
cricket. He showed that he was
really a vop notch batsman by
collecting 178 in 1945. against
British Guiana, and 164 not ou
in 1946 against Trinidad

A Captain

Then he had his first captaincy
in a big game when he led Bar-
bados in Jamaica in 1947. He
acquitved himself so well that he
was promptly confirmed in the
position when the M.C.C, came
to the West Indies in 1948.

He was one of three W.I. cap-
tains selected to lead teams against
the visiiors, and how he led the
homesters to victory, is still fresh
in the minds of every follower
of the game.

His triumph with the West
Indies team in India were fresh
laurels, and now he is faced with
the sternest test of his career.

That he will do well is the
fervent hope of every West Indian.

John is married, and father of
a family of 4 girls, the eldest
being 7 and the youngest just
over 6 monvhs of age. He works
with his father’s firm, J. N. God-
dard and Sons, as does all
other brothers. He is fond
dogs and horses and is owner of a
race horse or two. Cricket and

racing ere his two chief hobbies

This, the) said, has been going on steadily Some shopkeepers said v'aat ai yet they have not got their.supph for the week but no undue dtD mand is being made on the little rtiey have.

Some individuals said that ihev were not yet able to get all the oil they wanted but the situation was certainly not as difficult as last week. Queueing Over The familiar occurrence of a few days ago of people queucing up outside service stations to get a lli'ilc of the fuel, was not seen yesterday. At Messrs Fort Royal Garage Ltd., where the line at one time had extended almost into the roadway, Mr. Victor Bayley said: The fuel is ,nii being steadily disposed of. but there is no rush."

    THE PERFECT

    | Burma’s

    Value Increased

    He believed that the accession
    of the Asiatic members to the
    Commonweselth had increased the
    value of such consultations, par-
    ticularly where decisions had to
    be made on the Far East’. Pear-
    son reiterated his statements that
    Canada was unlikely to recognise
    the Chinese Communisis until he
    returned home in mid-February.

    The discussion on recognition
    led delegates to analyse the posi-
    tion in the United Nations Se-
    curivy Council, where the Chinese
    Nationalist Delegate, Dr. T.. F
    Tsiang, is due to take over the
    chair today.

    Some observers believed that
    Russia would be faced with a
    dilemma—eivher she must modify
    her position on the veto or defeat
    her own aims in the Security
    Council.

    If the question of China’s rep-
    resentation were wreated as one
    of “substance,” Dr, Tsiang would
    be able to perpetuate his Gov-
    ernment representation of apply-
    ing the vet.

    A communique after today’s
    session said: The Conference had
    considered the recognition of the
    new Chinese regime and also
    future relations of Commonwealth
    countries with China.

    Discrimination

    Reuter’s correspondent in Dur-
    ban writes: The greatest danger
    to Commonwealth relavions, peace
    and progress comes “not from
    Communism but from preaching
    and practising racial discrimina-
    tion,’ the South African Indian
    Congress declared in a cable today
    to heads of all delegavions at the
    Colombo Commonwealth Confer-
    ence.

    The cable, also sent to Mr.
    Philip Noel-Baker, British Min-
    ister of Commonwealth Relations,
    and Mr. Malcolm MacDonald,
    British Commissioner General in
    South Easv Asia, added: “Union
    nationals of Asian origin are de-
    nied any kird of political rep-
    resentation, are discriminated
    against in the nation’s economic
    life and barred from entering
    educational institutions and even
    public libraries, all on racial
    grounds.

    “No country can survive on
    such rotten foundations and no
    Commonwealth of Nations which
    ignores these facts can make any
    contribution vo peace and pro-
    gress.”’—Reuter.

    DEPRESSED

    LONDON, Jan. 10.

    With Britain’s political parties
    nustering their forces for the
    coming election fight, interest in
    London stock exchange is small.
    Market men were to-day awaiting
    the announcement of the polling
    date and with it the start of the
    battle for political control. Stock
    and share trading was meagre
    and prices were sensitive to

    gun fight to-day between sup-
    porters of the Wafdist and Lib-
    eral parties when Egypt went to
    the polts for a second ballot, in
    77 constituencies where results
    were inconclusive in last week’s
    General Election.

    The incident occurred in Mar-
    kabat, the constituency of Assiut
    Province in upper Egypt.

    One person was injured in a
    brawl between Wafdist and Na-
    tionalist supporters in the Seitung
    district of Cairo.

    War Crimes
    At 14?

    HELSINKI, Jan. 10.

    “War crimes” at the age of 14
    are alleged against a Finnish gir)
    in the Russian memorandum to
    Finland demanding she extradite
    300 persons for trial in the Soviet
    Union, circles close to the Minis-
    try of the Interior said to-day.
    The Finnish authorities are keep-
    ing the name of the girl secret.
    Now 21, the girl is living in Bukk,
    North West Finland. The Fin-
    nish authorities took her into their
    eare when her home in eastern
    Narellia was burned down in the
    fighting there in 1941.

    Later she married a Finn thus
    automatically requiring Finnish
    nationality. Three months ago
    she had her first child. She was
    described as “prostrate” at the |
    prospect of trial as a war criminal |
    in Russia. |

    The Ministry of the Interior to- |
    day circulated to police stations |
    in Finland lists of 56 of the 300 |
    persons who were desctibed in the
    memorandum as “guilty of a par- |
    ticularly grave crime against the |
    Soviet Union.” Five of these per- |
    sons are already in _ custody.
    Others. are expected to be arrest-
    @d soon.

    Ex-Brunswick
    ti e
    Head On. Trial
    BRUNSWICK, Jan. 10.

    The trial of Dietrich Klagges
    former Nazi Minister, President
    of Brunswick and an S.S. Gen-
    eral began before a German Court
    here to-day.

    Klagges is charged with mur-
    der and maltreatment of political
    prisoners, crimes against human-
    ity and racial persecution.

    The trial regarded as the big-
    gest in lower Saxony since the
    war is expected to last about
    three months,

    The prosecution has called al-
    most 250 witnesses. More than
    3,000 witnesses have already been
    questioned since investigation
    started immediately after the
    war.

    Klagges, interned since the end
    of the war, appeared fit when he
    entered the courtroom.

    Charges brought against
    Klagges date back to 1933, when
    Brunswick became notorious for
    the cruelties committed against
    political opponents of the Nazi
    regime. i

    A letter by Gestapo Chief,
    Heinrich Himmler, said the “ac-
    tions of Klagges in Brunswick in
    1933 have by far exceeded the re-
    quired scope.”

    In 1933 Klagges removed the
    Burnswick Minister President, a
    member of the Right Wing De-
    futche Nationale Volkspartei
    (German National Peoples Party)
    and took over his position.

    He remained Minister
    dent until 1945.

    A Majer Disaster

    THE breakdown in the negotiations
    between the West Indian sugar delegates
    and the Ministry of Food is a disaster of
    the greatest magnitude for West Indian
    sugar production. For Barbados it is a
    desperate situation. The remedy lies in
    the promotion of other sources of revenue
    for the support of two hundred thousand
    people which, in as far as this island is
    concerned, is almost impossible.

    Six months ago delegates representing
    the West Indian Sugar Producers went to
    London asking that inasmuch as the old
    agreement by which the British Govern-
    ment purchased all the exportable surplus
    of West Indian sugar would expire in 1952
    it would be desirable to draw up a new
    contract, The terms asked for in the new
    agreement was that there should be a
    remunerative price paid for West Indian
    sugar over a period of ten years. This,
    West Indian producers believed, would
    provide impetus and time for the expansion
    of the industry. x

    The first part of the negotiations ended
    in August last and it was confidently ex-
    pected that these demands would have
    been met. The British Government had
    promised to give close consideration to
    the claims of West Indian interests whose
    standards of living they were endeavour-
    ing to raise.

    Meanwhile Australia, South Africa,
    Fiji and Mauritius decided to send dele-
    gates to the sugar talks which were there-
    by raised to Commonwealth level, In
    November the West Indian delegates re-
    turned to London. But from the beginning
    their prospects looked black.

    The long story of stalling, and going back
    on its earlier assurance by the Ministry
    of Food is well known by readers of this
    newspaper.

    Although devaluation had hit the West
    Indies in the meantime the Ministry of
    Food hardened its heart. It was clear
    that an increased price for West Indian
    sugar would mean an increase however
    small in the cost to the British worker
    The General Elections are in the offing
    and the Food Minister, Mr. Strachey, was
    not prepared to risk even a small loss in
    the popularity of the British Labour
    Party. So he refused to grant the demands
    of West Indian sugar producers.

    The Secretary of State for the Colonies
    Mr. Creech Jones threw in his weight
    with the delegation asking for better
    terms; but although the Ministry of Food
    has entered an agreement with the Aus-
    tralian Government it has offered the
    West Indies only the opportunity to supply
    630,000 tons of sugar per annum at the
    old price.

    Even though the delegation pointed out
    that sugar provided its own fuel, main-
    tained the fertility of the soil, resisted
    long droughts, was least affected by hur-
    ricanes as compared with bananas, cocoa
    and cocoanuts, and provided employment
    for more people per acre than any other
    food crop, the West Indies have been once
    more pushed aside.

    Despite the pleading of the Lord Bishop
    of Barbados, Lord Milverton, Socialist and
    Conservative M.P.s and representatives of
    workers and employers throughout the
    West Indies, we have lost.

    The Ministry of Food under a t.abour
    Government in Great Britain has done the
    greatest disservice to the West Indies.
    And this in the fase of support from a
    Conservative Opposition in Parliament
    that there should be some consideration
    given to the claims of the West Indian
    Sugar industry if the standard of living
    in these colonies is to be raised,



    mene tens rae = me

    THERE is a story in every cir-
    cus; sometimes it is of love, some_
    times of heroism or sacrifice, and
    sometimes of tragedy.

    When Togare, the handsome
    tiger-trainer, saved six lions from
    fire at Birmingham a few years
    ago, he was not actually obliged
    to do it,

    Yet, not satisfied with having
    saved them from near death, he
    entered their cages and smeared
    their coats with 14lbs. of butter
    to save damage to their skins.

    This is the spirit of the circus.

    Alfredo Codona was a Mexi-
    can, born at Harmosillo, Lorosa,
    in the early ‘nineties.

    His father was a circus proprie-
    tor, and Alfredo had a flair for
    the flying trapeze.

    He made his first appearance,
    with his father as “catcher,” with
    Wirth Brothers’ Circus in Aus-
    tralia.

    Apart from his intense love
    affairs Alfredo had one great
    ambition: to be the first man to
    perform a triple somersault in
    the air.

    In 1917 he partnered his
    younger brother, Lalo, in a flying
    trapeze act with Clara Curtain, a
    beautiful girl and an expert in
    the air.

    Alfredo had thrown her across
    the chasm of the ring many times
    to be caught by his brother before
    the day he knew he had fallen
    in- love,

    A Daring Performer
    THEY married and worked
    together until Clara realised that
    Alfredo’s affections were waning
    She threatened to leave him
    and break up the act. It all ended
    in divorce,

    For a time Alfredo was discon-
    solate, but he recovered when he
    saw, on the same programme as
    himself, the reigning beauty of
    the circus, Lillian Leitzel.

    She was a aaring performer on
    the White Rope and Roman rings.

    Up near the roof of Madison
    Square Garden she whirled, the
    spotlights projecting her body
    against the dimness of the sur-
    rounding space.

    Suspended by a single white
    rope on a Roman ring 55 feet
    above the ground, she swung to
    and fro,

    Then, hanging by one hand,
    she went into a body whirl of a
    hundred revolutions.

    Book Review:

    THE HISTORY OF SUGAR, Vol.
    I, By Noel Deerr (Chapman &
    Hall 50/-).

    FOR Barkadians the staff of
    life is not bread, but sugar, and
    directly or indirectly it has been
    the support of everyone in the
    Island for some 300 years. The
    history of the industry will there-
    fore be of the greatest interest to
    all who live in Barbados, and I
    can fully recommend Mr. Deerr’s
    book as being the most compre-
    hensive treatise on the history of
    sugar yet written,

    Together with fruits, homey
    formed the source of supply of
    sugar to primitive man, except
    ) Where, in restricted areas, the

    bounty of nature had presented
    man with the sugar-carie and the
    | sugar palms, For the home of the
    sSugar-cane we must iook at the
    folklore of the south Pacific. The
    author quotes a charming little
    story which provides evidence of

    Oe
    eee

    its very early presence in those
    regions: “In New Britain two
    fishermen, To-Kabwana and To-
    Karvuvu (To is the Polynesian

    for sugar-cane), found one day in
    their net a piece of cane. This
    they threw away, but recovered
    on the second day and again on
    the third day, after which they
    kept and planted it. One day the
    cane burst and a woman came
    forth. She cooked food for the
    men and at night hid herself in
    the cane. On occasion she was
    captured and became the wife of
    one of the men. From their union
    sprany the whole human race
    The first canes brought to the
    New World were of a_ variety
    kndwn as the Puri or Creole cane,
    and they were brought by Colum-
    bus on his second western voy-
    age in 1493. Then with the Span-
    ish Conquistadores and the Port-
    uguese Donatorios, its spread was
    rapid, the extreme western limit
    of introduction being Peru. In
    1611 the Bermudas were granted
    to the Virginia Company, and here
    in 1616 was planted the first sugar-
    cane to be grown in the British
    Empire. But the island was not
    really suited for sugar-cane culti-
    vation, and although sugar was





    Romance On
    Trapeze

    By W. Buchanan-Taylor

    The number of revolutions were
    ealled off by the ringmaster, and
    Lillian would slide down the rope,
    apparently unaffected by her
    labours.

    She was the “Queen of the Air,”
    and Alfredo Codona watched and
    admired her.

    Now he was billed, justifiably,
    as “King of the Air,” for he had
    already achieved his triple somer_
    sault,

    Alfredo wooed Lillian.

    Soon she began to wait in the
    “wings” while he performed his
    triple somersault. She was always
    anxious, for she knew that of the
    four other gymnasts who had
    attempted it, three had been
    killed.

    She Crashed
    EVENTUALLY they married.
    They fixed engagements on the

    same bill, and travelled in the
    United States, Great Britain,
    South America, Spain, Italy, and
    Germany. Not a flaw marred the
    union.

    One week they were engaged
    at Copenhagen. Codona seemed
    inspired. Lillian’s feats were
    breath-taking.

    But on a night in the Danish
    capital the rope by which Lillian
    hung broke,

    The Roman ring parted in the
    middle of her 100 revolutions.
    She crashed to the ground.

    The audience saw her body
    earried from the ring; and she
    died in a few minutes,

    Codona, broken-hearted, gave
    up work; the tragedy preyed on
    his mind. He was, however, some.
    thing of a sculptor, and so deep
    was his affection for his wife that
    he carved a statue in her memory.

    fornia, and his body was laid to
    rest next to the statue of Lillian.

    Shot An Apple From
    Wife's Head

    THIS is the story of Hopper,
    an artist who was known through_
    out the circus world as “William
    Tell.”

    Three times a day he shot an
    apple from the head of his pretty
    wife, standing on the other side
    of the ring.

    For years they lived happily
    travelling across the world, enter_
    taining thousands. So accurate
    was “William Tell” that many
    believed the act was nothing more

    actually made in 1669, the indus~
    try never flourished.

    The distinction for being the
    pioneer of the British sugar indus-
    try belongs to Barbados, An ex-
    tract from Major Scott, who wrote
    in 1667, gives a good summary of
    the introduction of the sugar in-
    dustry to Barbados. “After this
    Collonell Philip Bell succeeding
    (1641) in the government of Bar-
    bados, and to tais time the island
    was but in ordinary condition
    though full of inhabitants having
    a great dependence on _ tobacco,
    some cotton and ginger, though
    sugar-cane had been had from
    Brazil a few years before by an
    accident, and was first planted
    by one Coll. Holdup, who was the
    first that made sugar in Barbados,
    but it came to little till the great
    industry and more thriving genius
    of Sir James Drax engaged in that
    great work, who brought Col-
    lonell Holdup’s essay to such
    great perfection, that many more
    were encouraged to undertake
    the making of sugar, which has
    proved of extraordinary advan-
    tage to the English nation... ”

    The first period of sugar manu-
    facture in Barbados was one of
    great prosperity, but after about
    a generation there was a partial
    failure. Littleton writing in 1690,
    dates the beginning of the period
    of distress from the time of the
    imposition in 1685 of the emergent
    additional duty on sugar of 2s. 4d.
    per ewt. A French writer, Butler
    Dumont, records that in 1689 in
    Barbados as many as forty estates
    were abandoned.

    An important discovery was
    made in 1858 when Iran Aeus, an
    employee of Highlands estate,
    Barbados, saw and_ recognised
    cane seedlings growing in a field
    of ratoon cane, thus definitely es-
    tablishing the fertility of cane
    seed, He told the owner of the
    estate, James W. Parris of his
    discovery, and Mr. Parris wrote a
    letter to the Barbados Liberal on
    February 8th, 1859, so putting the

    than a carefully prepared piece
    of mechanism.

    But it was, in fact, a case of
    brilliant marksmanship. Hopper
    was deadly.

    As they were preparing for the
    ring one night, Mrs, Hopper was
    called out of the dressing-room.

    Hopper spotted a folded note
    on her dressing-table. It was a
    letter from a secret lover.

    Ten minutes later they were
    doing their act. She went to her
    usual place and there were the
    customaty preliminaries.
    Boldly the wife placed the apple
    on her head. Hopper drew his
    bow and the arrow sped across
    the ring.

    For once, the bowman aimed
    inaccurately, The arrow entered
    her brow.

    She fell dead. It was an acci-
    dent, said the jury.

    Two Brothers

    THE “Three Sylvains” were an
    act composed of two brothers—
    Adolph and Wilhelm—and Helena
    a gorgeously formed creature who
    was cast in mid-air by the
    brothers.

    They had trained Helena and
    both fell in love with her.

    The triangle became tangled
    when she favoured the younger
    brother, Adolph. But Wilhelm
    was the more desperately in love.

    One day Wilhelm saw Adolph
    and Helena arm in arm gazing
    into a store window.

    He asked for an explanation.

    The two brothers quarrelled
    and threatened to split the part-
    nership.

    Helena made peace, but Wil-
    helm brooded. He sought solace
    in drink.

    Soon the effect was to show
    itself. Wilhelm’s judgment and
    timing became faulty.

    One night, Wilhelm, misjudging
    time and distance, failed to seize
    his brother’s outstretched arms
    and fell.

    A doctor ran to him. Wilhelm
    had broken his back. His career
    was ended.

    Adolph came down from the
    heights under the dome, and
    knelt beside his brother.

    Next morning Adolph, grief-
    stricken, was discovered dead
    from poisoning at his hotel.

    He had committed suicide.

    observation on record. Although
    the announcement made by Mr.
    Parris was copied into the Produce
    Markets Review and into the Aus-
    tralian press, it attracted little at-
    tention and was soon forgotten.
    But the matter was re-opened in
    1888 when Mr. J. B, Pilgrim, an
    overseer at Dodd’s Reformatory,
    reported to the Superintendent,
    Mr. J. R. Bovell, that he had seen
    “fine grasses” springing up in a
    field of cane,



    “There is one remarkable and
    unique feature of the sugar indus-
    try in Barbados” writes Mr. Deerr,
    “While in its earlier years its
    factories were of then normal size,
    it maintained its production with
    no increase in the size of its fac-
    tories or departure from primitive
    methods. Once the resort of the
    early capitalists, the movement
    towards larger factories and the
    use of steam and of vacuum boil-
    ing left Barbados unmoved and it
    became a colony of self-contained
    properties, of individual propri-
    etors, and still kept a substantia]
    degree of prosperity.”

    In 1849 there were still 508
    plantations, only reduced to 329
    by 1911, of which 220 were still
    using windmills. But the change
    came soon afterwards, and in
    1937 there were only thirty dark

    crystal and twelve muscavado
    factories. Now there are even
    fewer,

    In other chapters’ the author
    deals with the sugar industries of
    India, China and the Far East,
    the Mediterranean, and of the
    various colonies in the Pacific
    and the Caribbean. There are
    many illustrations, most of them
    being reproductions of very rare
    old prints, and there are also
    contemporary diagrams of early
    sugar mills. “The History of
    Sugar” will undoubtedly become
    a permanent work of reference
    for all those interested in the
    production and handling of sugar
    and indeed for anyone requiring
    information concerning the his-
    tory of this. important industry,










    FROM the Spring-gardens Galleries,
    London, to the United Services Club, Luek-
    now, to the City Hall Gallery of Durban
    and thence to the Jacoby Galleries of Mont-
    real adds up to an almost astronomical total
    of miles; but Mrs. Dorothy McAvity,
    F.R.S.A., has exhibited her pictures at these
    centres of art, and many others. During)
    the coming weekend she will add the Bar-
    bados Drill Hall to the list. ,

    Mrs. McAvity, a Nova Scotian by birth, is
    probably better known as a painter outside
    her native Canada than within. She main-
    tained a studio in London for many years
    which formed a meeting place for people
    well known in the world of arts and letters
    and among her sitters have been members
    of the Royal Family and many celebrities in
    the Armed Services, Society and Administra-
    tion, Not limited, however, to portraiture she
    is equally facile at expressing her genius in
    landscapes and subject pictures.

    “THAT’S JOLLY ,GOOD”

    An experience shared by few artists befell
    her when she was commissioned to paint
    Queen Mary and the Duke of Windsor, when
    the Duke was Prince of Wales. Both pictures
    attracted a great deal of attention in London|
    and many of Queen Mary’s personal friends,
    including the Marchioness of Salisbury, de-
    scribed Her Majesty’s portrait as being one
    of the best likenesses ever done of the sub-
    ject.



    Naval uniform and the picture was repro-
    duced in the Strand Magazine, the Sphere,
    Mirror and Graphic, the Strand printing it
    in full colours. On completion of this portrait
    Mrs. McAvity was invited to bring it to St.
    James Palace in person, where the Prince
    insisted on undoing the bindings and strip-
    ping off the wrapping paper himself. Holding
    up the picture he exclaimed characteristi-
    cally, “Oh, I say—that’s jolly good”.

    Among a long list of other sitters have
    been : Viscount Falkland, Lady Lloyd-
    Graeme, wife of the President of the Board
    of Trade, General Sir James Wilcocks, when
    Governor of Bermuda, the Countess of Clan-
    carty and General Sir David Campbell, when
    Governor of Malta.

    Mr: R. R. Tatlock, editor of the Burlington
    Magazine and art critic of the Daily Tele-
    graph wrote this of her ability as a portrait
    painter: “She has a remarkable gift for get-
    ting on her canvasses not only the super-
    ficial features but the internal psychology
    of her many distinguished English sitters.
    She is the sort of portraitist who can, as it
    were, say a great deal in a few words,” Of
    the painting of Gen. Sir David Campbell, Mr.
    Tatlock wrote: “Very few other painters
    could have realised in paint the essential
    shrewdness, as expressed in his features, of
    this man. The artist interprets his character
    inimitably and takes us, through her talent
    and her genius, into his spiritual presence,
    Of all our Dominions, Canada has produced
    the best art, and there is no doubt that one

    lof Canada’s ablest artists is Dorothy Mc-
    Avity.” Mrs, McAvity’s achievements were
    recognized in 1946 when she was elected a
    F.R.S.A.

    LOCAL PORTRAITS

    Mrs. McAvity’s exhibition is to be held at
    the Drill Hall on Saturday and Sunday next
    and the proceeds have been most generously
    donated to the Barbados S.P.C.A. To add to
    this tree landscapes have been donated to
    the S.P.C.A., one for raffling and two for sale
    by silent auction. Of particular local interest
    will be the portraits of two well known Bar-
    badian ladies which will be on view.

    Expel The Nationalists

    A demand from the Chinese Communist Govern-
    ment that the Nationalist delegates be expelled
    from the United Nations Security Council was
    received at United Nations Headquarters at Lake
    Success today, it was reported by Reuter,

    The demand made in a cablegram from Peking
    on January 8 was signed by Chou En-Lai, the
    Communist Foreign Minister. The cable, addressed
    to Mr. Trygve Lie, Secretary General, and the
    members of the Council, said : “This is to inform

    To The Editor, The Advocate,

    SIR,—The attack by your cor-
    respondent “C.R.”"on the British
    Council is unjustified. Is the British
    Council “presenting an undue
    amount of the British way of liv-
    ing to these quarters”? It does
    not appear so. Indeed, is not the
    way of life of this island modelled
    on the British way?

    We should .be grateful to the
    British Council for filling the
    gaps so long left open.

    Your Correspondent does not
    think that the West Indies are
    without, art or beauty; if by beau-
    ty he means beauty of nature, I
    agree with him, but where is
    the art? I am unaware of the
    existence of an Art Gallery in any
    West Indian colony. In Barbados
    the interiors of homes do not dis-
    play much sign of taste or beauty.
    The pictures of even well to do
    Barbadians are usually poor re-
    productions, prints. or watercol-
    ours. No local artist could make
    a living by selling his works to
    fellow Barbadians, and the at-
    tendance at art exhibitions is de-
    pressing.

    4 It is necessary in Art Educa-
    tion to begin from scratch, since



    few Barbadians have had the op-
    portunity of visiting the Picture
    Galleries of Europe or the United
    States. Constructive criticism is
    needed, but Barbadians are no-
    toriously unable to stand criti-
    cism, which, if it is delivered by
    a non-Barbadian amounts almost
    to treason. This does not prevent
    Barbadians from being highly
    critical of each other and even
    more of non-Barbadians.

    The British Council has grant-
    ed scholarships to West Indians
    in cases where it has thought it
    would be beneficial, doubtless
    more will be granted in the course
    of time. Some have, therefore,
    received a forward push of which
    your correspondent seems un-
    aware.

    Longer Hours for Teachers
    To the Editor, The Advocate,



    SIR,—Why such an ado over
    our Elementary Schools, wher
    our inspired first Director with
    quick eye discovered the syst
    was progressing correctly

    that the majority of the Second
    ary Schools needed his guidanc:
    more?



    This progressive age has caused
    parents to be over anxious about
    their children’s progress in the
    early years, but Education is a
    slow, process and any cramming or
    over-burdening of subjects must
    retard real progress.

    Parents are looking daily for
    that old time brilliance or accu-
    racy of certain facts which they
    had to exhibit, at the point of the
    rod or strap, as a sign of learning
    in their day. They can’t under-
    stand that the whole educational
    system throughout the world has
    changed from producing a finished
    product in the Elementary School,
    to developing the brain of the
    child to produce and see valuable
    and great things later in his life.

    I am sure that the majcrity of
    our Elementary Schools, js still
    producing good and -¢x-ellent
    results as compared with Jhe years
    past; but some teachers inexperi-

    enced, are looking fur finished
    products to teach, ‘and some
    parents are work ruracies by T 1€








    snit winners

    I’ is well known that the aver-
    ige child needs individual atten
    Wor

    No human being can give that

    extra individual attention to a
    class of more than 25 children,
    with a curriculum already over-
    burdened with activities that
    should be optional,

    The percentage of excellent
    results therefore must be small
    when the number of the staff is
    inadequate. The same parents
    that are so critical of the Elemen_
    tary School fail to keep the rules
    of the ‘school, but as soon as they
    get these children in the Second-
    ary Schools they do everything
    possible to keep the rules of these
    schools and so aid the Secondary
    teachers immensely,

    Age grouping is a splendid in-
    novation for parents and children,
    but it should never precede pro-
    per staffing of schools and com-
    pulsory attendance. Those who
    have visited our schools on open
    days and speech days must believe
    that our teachers are over-worked
    and still underpaid.’ Why then try

    ® to spoil the whole thing by now

    over 200 years teachers

    ols for five hours a day and

    di excellent results. Why in

    less than what his predecessor re.

    workers throughout the whole
    world are demanding better pey
    and less working hours?

    No teacher is against a com-
    mon course for our schools.
    teacher would ever object to any
    method which really would help
    our children,
    there are teachers who know
    Latin and French but how many
    know Spanish?

    Barbados followed a Common
    Course in the days of Rev, Ni-+
    chols and Mr Greenhalgh with
    success. It is not the Common
    Course that is the disturbing
    thing but the extended hour. An
    extended hour might suit another
    island but it certainly does not
    suit Barbados except the goal is

    11, 1950

    Castries Reconstruction
    Is Progressing

    ST. LUCIA is continuing with reconstruction, the

    programme for which is working to schedule.

    Hon’ble

    A. C. H. Baynes, the colony’s Treasurer, told the Advocate

    yesterday. ;

    Mr. Baynes was an arrival on
    Sunday by B.W.I.A. for the
    Customs Union Talks and is stay-
    ing at the Hastings Hotel.

    He said that the Estimates for
    1950 were passed on Dece,aber 8
    by the Legislative Council and
    showed a total revenue including
    expenditure from Colonial Devel-
    opment and Welfare schemes of
    $2,672,863. Of that amount, C.D.
    and W. schemes accounted for
    $766,961 against which there was
    an estimated expenditure of
    $2,484,985, thus showing a surplus
    on the year’s working of $187,878.

    At “he end of 1949, there was
    an estimated deficit of $470,000
    mainly due to effects of the fire,
    and the importation soon after
    the fire through an error of sur-
    plus reinforcing steel bars of over
    1,000 tons which cost the Goy-
    ernment nearly $300,000.

    Ordinances

    In December 1949, the follow-
    ing Ordinances were passed:
    Amendment to the Customs Tar-
    iff increasing the import duty on
    manufactured tobacco, cigarettes
    and cars imported from the Unit-
    ed Kingdom; (b) increasing the
    rate of collection of trade duty
    on spirits from 2/2 to 4/- per gal-
    lon; (c) revising the rates in the
    upper brackets on Succession Du-
    ties; (d) increasing the rates of
    income tax on company tax from
    6/- to 6/6 in the pound and (e)
    a consolidated ordinance revising
    the rates of rural house tax and
    at the same time introducing for
    the first time in the history of the
    colony, land tax.

    The tax on land was introduced
    purely as an instrument of policy
    and not as.a fiscal measure.

    Despite the reconstruction of
    Castries, every effort was being
    matle to develop the resources of
    the colony. No action was how-
    ever being taken for the next two
    years or so during the reconstruc-
    tion of Castries on schemes, which
    were not of a productive nature
    or ancillary to production.

    Efforts were at present being
    concentrated to develop the bana-
    na industry, but the results would
    not be seen for sometime to come.

    Largely through the efforts of
    His Honour the Administrator,
    Members of the Legislative Coun-
    cil, The Agricultural Superintend-
    ent and the Adviser to the Secre-
    tary of State, by the establish-

    ment of experimental fish ponds
    at the Union Agricultural Station,
    it is hoped to increase the fish
    resources of the colony.

    For that purpose, a special spe-
    cie and type of fish was imported
    at comparatively low cost from
    Malaya and the experiment show-
    ed signs of great potentialities,
    especially in areas where the
    catches of that valuable and cheap
    commodity were inadequate to
    meet the needs of the communi-
    ties. Such an experiment tended
    to clear in due course, areas that
    were likely to be overrun with
    malaria.

    Activities in the Public Works
    Department will be necessarily
    curtailed in 1950, with the excep-
    tion of expenditure on two ex-
    traordinary necessary items and
    a slight increase in road pro-
    grammes, mainly for maintaining
    and opening up byesroads into the
    interior of the colony.

    The rebuilding of the town of
    Castries is being supervised by
    Colonial Development Corpora-
    tion who are the agents of the
    Government of St. Lucia, and as-
    sociated with them for carrying
    out the work is a reputable Eng-
    lish firm of contractors (Holland
    & Hannan and Cubbits).

    Contractors’ Quarters

    They had already constructed
    living quarters for their contrac-
    tors, houses for the poorer classes
    at Vide Bouteille, a suburb of
    Castries, and were now construct-
    ing in Castries proper, several
    maisenettes for the lower income
    groups and the Customs transit
    shed.

    During the year 1949, an oiled
    15 ft. carriageway between Den-
    nery and Vieux Fort approxi-
    mately 18 miles, was completed
    by Messrs, J. N. Harriman and
    Co., Ltd., contractors of Port-of-
    Spain, Trinidad.

    Three large storage tanks for
    storing gasoline, kerosene and gas
    oil were also completed at La Toc
    about a mile from Castries by the
    Trinidad Petroleum Marketing Co.
    (West Indies) Ltd. and those
    tanks will shortly be in operation.

    About the middle of 1949, the
    United States base at Beanefield

    about 40 miles from Castries was |,

    deactivated by the United States
    authorities and all fittings and in-
    stallations were purchased by the
    St. Lucia Government.

    St. Vincent
    Has Deficit
    Of $110,000

    The passing of the Estimates by
    the St. Vincent Legislature on
    December 12, showed that they
    have budgeted for a deficit of
    approximately $110,000, Hon’ble
    V. Archer, the colony’s Treasurer
    told the Advocate yesterday.

    He said that they were hoping
    to offset that deficit by a surplus
    carried forward from 1949 as well
    as by the introduction of one or
    two minor“faxation measures such
    as certain increases in stamp
    duties and a slight advance in the

    Mr. Archer came in on Sunday
    by B.W.1.A. for the Customs Talks
    and is staying at the Hastings
    Hotel.

    He said that agricultural ex-
    pansion in St. Vincent was pro-
    gressing rapidly and the Land
    Settlement Development Scheme
    which was being operated in the
    Leeward section of the island,
    offered most favourable indications
    of success. Also, owing to their
    energetic Administrator, His
    Honour W. F. Coutts, M.B.E., a
    salt and salt fishing industry in
    the St. Vincent Grenadines was
    being vigorously undertaken.

    Public Works extraordinary ac-
    tivities had been necessarily
    curtailed owing to the adverse
    revenue prospects for 1950, but
    essential maintenance works had,
    however, been provided for as well
    as a restricted continuation of the
    road improvement programme on
    the windward section of the
    island.

    some other reason.

    This agent does not expect any
    action to be taken by owners of
    rented houses until the Vestries
    ilay their rates in March. Al-
    , though the tax has been abolish-
    ed, it was not stated as a fact
    that it would be placed on the
    owners,

    It will be the duty of the Ves-
    tries to decide from what source
    or sources they will raise the
    revenue that has come from
    Occupancy Tax heretofore, The!
    Agent expressed the view, how-
    ever, that if the tax is placed
    on the owners, it is almost inevi-
    table that rents will be increased.

    No renter interviewer by the|
    “Advocate” disagreed with the|
    abolition of the tax. On the con-
    trary they were unanimous in
    their detestation of it. Most. of
    phem did not mind if the owner







    raised rents to the extent justi-
    fied by his having to pay
    extra tax, but they feared the
    unscrupulous landlords would
    go beyond what was justifiable.
    In this connection the view
    | was expressed that it was high
    time that Rent Restriction
    islation was introduced.

    penny of Barbados Neptune

    penny and half-penny are included in a fine collection of
    coins of local interest presented to the Barbados Museum
    by Count Alexandre Orlowski who is paying a visit to

    The collection includes a num-
    ber of Barbadian copper coins in
    mint condition of 1788 and 1792.
    An interesting specimen is the
    farthing issued by Thomas Law-
    ler & co., General Merchants of
    11 Broad Street. These were of
    the type known as token coins.

    Another example of the token
    coinage takes the form of a farth-
    ing and half-penny issued by
    Moses Tolanto, a Jewish merchant
    of Barbados. On one side there is
    engraved a hogshead with the
    initials of the merchant—M. T.
    and on the other side, the words
    “Freedom without slavery’.

    There are also French coins of
    the Windward Islands struck
    during the reign of Louis XV and
    coins of Antigua, British and
    French Guiana.

    King Edward VIII’s name ap-

    Copra, firewood, cocoanuts, fresh

    Fresh fruit were in larger quan-

    Kerosene |
    Shortage
    Relieved

    The kerosene ol) shortage of
    last week has now been relieved.
    Messrs. General Traders Lid., and
    Messrs R. M, Jones & Co., Ltd.,
    agents of the Shell Company and
    Esso Company respectively, told
    the Advocate yesverday that with
    the unloading of the tanker Rufina
    on Saturday, no time was lost on
    Sunday in making as many de-
    liveries as possible. This, they
    said, has been going on steadily.

    Some shopkeepers said vnat as
    yet they have not got their_supply
    for the week but no undue de-
    mand is being made on the little
    vhey have. This they said is very
    likely, due to the fact that people
    can get their requirements from Ss
    other sources who have already
    got vheir quota.

    Some individuals said that they
    were not yet able to get all the
    oil they wanved but the situation
    was certainly not as difficult as
    last week.

    Queueing Over

    The familiar occurrence of a
    few days ago of people queueing
    up outside service stations to get
    a livile of the fuel, was not seen
    yesterday.

    At Messrs Fort Royal Garage
    Ltd., where the line at one time
    had extended almost into vhe
    roadway, Mr. Victor Bayley said:
    “The fuel is still being steadily
    disposed of, but there is no rush.”
    The station had received a supply
    on Monday.

    Av the Esso Servicenter the sit-
    uation was again normal, they had
    got their supply since Sunday.

    Messrs Redman & Taylor
    Garage Ltd., on the other hand
    had gov a little on Monday, it was
    learnt, and this was disposed of
    in short time. They expected a

    1950 Yacht Se

    Brings Out New Boats [nteresti

    WHEN the first Regatta of the coming Yachting Season

    opens on Saturday, January

    21, lovers of this sport will be

    some new boats in action. :

    The season shows signs of being a very promising one
    with the new Centre Board Class boats amalgamated with
    the regular ‘C’ Class boats. The Centre Boards boats are
    of the Lightning and Seagull type.

    In the ‘B’ Class there are
    three new entires. One, the
    “Resolute”, which has been beach-
    ed for many years, is owned by
    Owen Burke and will be sailed by
    Hammond Burke. The “Undine”
    is now being reconditioned and
    it is that it will join in
    the Regattas shortly. It is owned
    by Teddy Hoad and will be sailed
    by his son Tony.

    Another new entry to this
    Class is the “Circe”, owned by Dr.
    J. W. Harkness. This boat was
    built in Barbados but was carried
    to Trinidad where it did some
    sailing. It was recently brought
    back to the island. Dr. Harkness
    will sail the boat himself.

    Regular Entries

    The other boats are the regular
    entries, but in some cases repairs
    have been made and the boats
    are expected to give improvea
    performances.

    Lester Toppin'’s “Gipsy” has
    been fitted with a new suit o!
    sails and it is expected that this
    boat will display some oe
    sailing. Stanton Toppin’s “Mts-
    chief” has had some minor alter-
    ations which should be an asset.

    It is regrettable that this Class
    will be losing the “Shamrock”, a
    type of sister yacht to the “Mis-
    chief,” and “Gipsy”. The
    “Shamrock” has been sold and wil!
    not be competing in the series.

    Teddy Hoad’s Star boat “Fan-
    tasy” has also been fitted with a
    new suit of sails. Also receiving
    a new suit of sails is the “Commo-
    dore”, Mr. J. H. Wilkinson's,
    “Moyra Blair”. Both boats are
    expected to sail better this season

    Eieven boats are entered in the
    Combined ‘C’ and Centre Boara
    Class. In the ‘C’ section there
    is the “Wizard II” which was
    recently built by Jim Jones and
    is moored off the Reef.

    New Type

    In the Centre Board section, the
    “Rogue,” a new Lightning type
    boat built by Gerald Nicholls, is
    entered. Another new Lightning
    class boat is the “Scamp”, whic!
    is owned and was built »b)
    Leonard Archer. The “Folly”, &
    thoroughly reconditionei Sea-
    gull class boat is also entered. 1
    is owned by Lester Toppin and wil
    be sailed by his sons, Bert anc
    Pat.

    Also new to the Combined “C”
    Class is Colin Bellamy’s ‘“Magwin’
    which , has been

    promoted from | Smith,
    the Intermediate Class owing 10} jiarns,

    Cup will be raced for as usual at
    the end 67 the series.

    At the end of the tenth and final
    Regatta last season the results
    were: 3’ Class 1. War Cloud,
    71.25%, 2. Moyra Blair, 70.45%,
    3. Okapi, 70%.

    ‘C’ Class: 1. Astra, 16.27%, 2.
    Gannet, 75.47%, 3. Ranger, 55.67%.

    Intermediate Class; 1. Magwin,
    75%, 2. Coronetta, 70.24%, 3.
    Dauntless, 66.20%.

    ‘D’ Class: 1. Peter Pan, 80.77%,
    ), Sinbad, 74.36%, 3. Dawn, 71.43%.

    When the Frontena¢ Cup was}
    sailed for last season, 29 boats;

    ‘T

    entered. The race was won by}
    the “Invader”, with the second}
    md third places going to the;
    “Clytie’? and “Magwin’ respec- |
    tively |

    Mr. Péter Ince, owner of the}
    ‘Gannet”, and a member of the

    Sailing Committee, is of the opin- |
    on that more yachtsmen should be |
    mterested in the one-designed |
    Centre Board boats after they
    have seen them in action this
    season.

    He said that they had formed a}
    Centre Board Class comprising of
    Seagulls and Lightnings, but owing
    to the scarcity of entries in the
    regular ‘C’ Class, these two ssieee'’
    had to be amalgamated |

    He said that Svecial Prizes will |
    be awarded to the Centre Board |
    boats at the ending of the season
    for the best performances.

    Centté Board boats re built |
    from imported plan Mr. Ince’s |
    boat is one of the oldest Centre

    Board boats racing and is built off |

    the Seagull one-desigt

    John Douglas Goddard, just
    named Captain of the West Indies
    cricket team for the third time
    in his comparatively short cricket!
    career is an outstanding example
    of what can be accompiished by
    grit and determination, linked
    with native ability. He was born
    on April 21, 1919, and therefore,
    incidentally celebrates his birth-
    day at the same time as Princess
    Elizabeth. He is the last of nine
    boys,—and boys who always lik-
    ed and played their cricket well.
    One brother Dr. A. L. Goddard
    was once a stalwart of Pickwick
    C.c. and another brother, Cecil
    W. Goddard, nicknamed Bedelia
    (after a West Indian race horse)
    because of his speed on the crick-
    et and football field represented
    British Guiana, in the first named
    game, And the Pickwick Club,
    which produced W.I, cricket
    names like Tim Tarilton, and
    Teddy Hoad, now numbers al)
    the Goddards in its roll of meim-
    vers.

    So John is but following a
    tradition. At the age of 10, he
    was a schoolboy force to be

    reckoned with at Harrison College
    vith his left handed batting, and
    right arm bowling.

    A Youngster

    3ut it was at Lodge Sci.ool
    where he went in 1933, that he
    attracted attention, not only by
    his cricketing ability but by his
    all round athletic prowess, A
    fine turn of speed, which is still
    one of his many assets, enabled
    him to stand out, in the wing
    position, on the football fieid
    and also to notch record honours

    | by winning the 100 yards events

    Inter-School games
    secs. in company
    “giants”. He has also done
    100 in 10 secs. This turn of
    speed, plus a keen eye, and a fine
    sense of: anticipation, also made

    in
    of
    the

    in the
    10-1/5

    him into a first rate fieldsman,
    and today he is as good as any
    other West Indies fieldsman ir

    position, especially near the
    From cover, he has a fuil
    return straight and true

    any
    wicket

    made mre than gloved
    fieldsmz.. wince.

    So it was thus equipped thai!
    young John Goddard made his
    debut in the intercolonial cricke!
    arena, when he was selected to re-
    present Barbados in Trinidad at
    the age of 17. This was in January
    1937, and in September the same
    year, he was a member of the
    Barbados teal which went to
    British Guiana. His first appear-

    NG BUT STATIC!

    ance, a’ the historic Kensington
    Oval was in 1939, but then he was
    only 12th man.

    Five years later, the same
    Kensington was the scene of his
    greatest batting triumph to date
    when he partnered Frankie
    Worrell in a world record-
    breaking 4th wicket partner-
    ship of 502. John’s share was
    218 and Frankie's 308.

    Goodwill Tours

    After 1939, the year in which
    World War No. 2 starved, big
    cricket in these islands took the
    form of Goodwill tours and these
    gave Goddard full opportunity vo
    display his wares. In 1942, on the
    second of these tours to Trinidad
    he got a fighting 98 not our, of
    total of 199 made by thé Barbados
    side. Here he displayed his dow
    fighting qualities, remaining un-
    ruffled and undismayed as_ his
    colleagues came and went,

    In 1943 his bes’ score was 101
    again not out, and 1944 saw him
    in all his pristine glory at Ken-
    sington. It was in February agains
    Trinidad that he and Worrell kepi
    the fielders busy for two whole
    days. John Goddard had arrived
    with a vengeance, and had carved
    a niche for himself in West Indies
    cricket. He showed that he was
    really a vop notch batsman by
    collecting 178 in 1945. against
    British Guiana, and 164 not ou
    in 1946 against Trinidad

    A Captain

    Then he had his first captaincy
    in a big game when he led Bar-
    bados in Jamaica in 1947. He
    acquitved himself so well that he
    was promptly confirmed in the
    position when the M.C.C, came
    to the West Indies in 1948.

    He was one of three W.I. cap-
    tains selected to lead teams against
    the visiiors, and how he led the
    homesters to victory, is still fresh
    in the minds of every follower
    of the game.

    His triumph with the West
    Indies team in India were fresh
    laurels, and now he is faced with
    the sternest test of his career.

    That he will do well is the
    fervent hope of every West Indian.

    John is married, and father of
    a family of 4 girls, the eldest
    being 7 and the youngest just
    over 6 monvhs of age. He works
    with his father’s firm, J. N. God-
    dard and Sons, as does all
    other brothers. He is fond
    dogs and horses and is owner of a
    race horse or two. Cricket and

    racing ere his two chief hobbies

    terms with the Jamaica Cricket
    Board regarding his acceptance
    to captain the team going 10

    To-day’s “Guardian” editorial
    deplored the fact that the “old

Wednesday, January 11, 1950 \ Major lli*aler THE breakdown in the negotiations between the West Indian sugar delegates and the Ministry of Food is a disaster of the greatest magnitude for West Indian sugar production. For Barbados it is a desperate situation. The remedy lies in the promotion of other sources of revenue for the support of two hundred thousand people which, in as far as this island is concerned, is almost impossible. Six months ago delegates representing the West Indian Sugar Producers went to London asking that inasmuch as the old agreement by which the British Government purchased all the exportable surplus of West Indian sugar would expire in 1952 it would be desirable to draw up a new contract. The terms asked for in the new agreement was that there should be a remunerative price paid for West Indian sugar over a period of ten years. This, Indian producers believed, would provide impetus and time for the expansion of the Industry, The first part of the negotiations ended in August last and it was confidently cx%  I that these demands would have been met. The British Government had promised to give close consideration to the claims of West Indian interests whose standards of living they were endeavouring to raise. Meanwhile Australia, South Africa, Fiji and Mauritius decided to send deleto the sugar talks which were thereby raised to Commonwealth level. In nober the West Indian delegates returned to London. But from the beginning their i ke<1 Muck. The long stury of stalling, and going back on il by tl" Ministry -•d is well known by readers u( this newspaper. Although devaluation had hit the West Indies in the meantime the Ministry of Food hardened its heart. It was clear that an increased price for West Indian would mean an increase however small in the cost to the British worker The I 'lions are in the offing and the Food Minister, Mr. Strachey, was not prepared to risk even a small loss in the popularity of tinHnti.sh Labour Bo ii • rafUNd I" giant the demands of West Indian sugar prodl Ti,r Secretary of State la \: ( IIOOJM Mr. Creech Jones threw in his weight with ih.delegation asking (or b teims; but although tinMutiltry of I d .1 with the Australian GovenuMnt it lias offered the Indus only the opportunity to supply b.iU.OOO tons of sugar per annum at the old pi 'i though the delegation pointed out .:...i provided its own fuel, main: the iiTtiiiiy ot the toll, tealilml long diough • affected by hur"impared with bananas, cocoa iul provided employment re people per acre than any other food i ..4 Indies have bei I more p..

She was the "Queen of the Air." and Alfredo Codona watched and admired her. was billed, justifiably, as "King of the Air." for he had already achieved his triple somer. SiHilt. Alfredo wooed Lillian.

One week they were engaged at Copenhagen. Codona seemed inspired. UUlan'f feats were '.iking. Hut on a night in the Danish capital the rope by which Lillian hung broke. The Roman ring parted In the middle of her 100 revolutions. She crashed to the ground. The audience saw her body carrt i from the ring, and she I few minutes. Codona, broken-hearted, gave up work; the tragedy preyed on his mind. He was, however, something of a sculptor, and so deep was his affection for his wife that I ,i -tatiie in her memory He died at Long Beach, California, and his body was laid to rest next to the statue of Lillian. Miof An Apple From Wife's II. HI THIS is the story of Hopper, an artist who was known through, out the circus world as "William Tell." Three times a day he sho* an in the head of his prettt* 'ling on the other side <>f the ring. For years they lived happily tr.,veiling across the world, entertaining thousands. So accurate William Tell" that many the act was nothing more titan a carefully prepared piece of mechanism. But it was, in fact, a case of brilliant marksmanship. Hopper was deadly. As they were preparing for the ring one night, Mrs. Hopper wacalled out of the dressing-room. Hopper spotted a folded note nn her dressing-table. It was a latter from a secret lover. Ten minutes later they were doing their act. She went to her usual place and there were the customary preliminaries. Boldly the wife placed the apple on her head. Hopper drew his bow and the arrow sped across the ring. For once, the bowman aimed inaccurately. The arrow entered her brow. She fell dead. It was an accident, said the jury. Tw Hroll.ns THE "Three Sylvains" were an act composed of two brothers— Adolph and Wilhelm—and Helena a gorgeously formed creature who was cast in mid-air by th. brothers. They had trained Helena and both fell in love with her. The triangle became tangled when she favoured the younger brother, Adolph. But Wilhelm was the more desperately in love One day Wilhelm saw Adolph and Helena arm in arm gazing into a store window. He asked for an explanation. The two brothers quarrelled and threatened to split the partnership. Helena made peace, but Wilhelm brooded. He sought solace m drink. Soon the effect was to show itself. Wilhelm's judgment and liming became faulty. One night, Wilhelm, misjudging time and distance, failed to seize his brother's outstretched arms and fell. A doctor ran to him. Wilhelm had broken his back. His career was ended. Adolph came down from the heights under the dome, and knelt beside his brother. Next morning Adolph, griefstricken, was discovered dead from poisoning at his hotel. He had committed suicide. It.iok lliunt : The Staff Of Life Tilt IHMOUY OF SUGAR.

"There is one remarkable and unique feature of the sugar industry in Barbados" writes Mr. Deerr, "While in its earlier years its factories were of then normal size, it maintained its production with M in the size of its fact.parture from primitive methods. Once the resort of the early capitalists, the movement towards larger factories and the use of steam and of vacuum boiling left Barbados unmoved and it became a colony of self -con tamed properties, of Individual proprietors, and still kept a substantial degree of prosperity."
