60 Killed, Wounded
In Bandung ‘Mutiny’

: DJAKARTA, Jan. 24.
QIXTY Indonesian army men were killed or wounded in
S the Bandung fighting, the Chief of Staff of the Indo-

nesian armed forees, Colonial Simaturpang, said today.
The situation in Lembang 10 mifes north of Bandung was

still confused he said. is

He alleged that what happened in Bandung yesterday “was
really a mutiny by the large number of Dutch forces
stationed there. : }
Colonel Simaturpang said that
Indonesian authorities warn-
the Dutch Commander in
ndung, General Engels, on. Sun-
yy night about the possibility of
n outbreak.
The rebels passed Dutch posi-
ons as they entered the city, the
ndonesian Colonel said.
Commando units of the Indo-
nesian Army, flown in from
Djakarta and Soerabaya, re-
occupied Bandung early today.|

Westerling’s “Army of the

Bandung, to command the moun-
tam passes to Djakarta and could
block any attempt at reinforcing
the city.

Dutch soldiers awaiting repatri- |

Westerling’s forces as they march-
ed past their barracks. Indonesian
soldiers in the Dutch forces, who
are drawn mainly from the east-
ern islands, and who are un-
sympathetic to the present Indo-
nesian Government, were openly |
jubilant at Westerling’s success |
but were under strict orders from
| their Dutch officers to remain in}

Donald Hume on trial here for

murder, gave evidence in his de-

fence at the Central Criminal |
Court to-day, but admitted that |
she did not know much about his

She said that he told her he was

a navy blue two-piece suit with
a navy blue off the forehead hat

into the witness box which Hume

She had heard her husband tell

The prosecution alleged that

Hume killed Setty and*then drop-

' Slashed Taxes

| By FRASER WIGHTON

LONDON, Jan. 24.
‘THE British Conservative (Opposition) Party
today made its supreme bid to recapture con-
trol of Britain’s destinies with a manifesto naming
full employment as “No. 1 priority’’ if the party
wins a five years term of power.
The 22-page manifesto called “This is the Road’’

pinpointed also as chief aims:

SLASHED TAXES.

AN END TO NATION-
ALISATION.

HOMES FOR ALL.

FAIR FIELD FOR
ENTERPRISE.

TIGHTENING
OF BRITAIN’S
BONDS WITY THE
COMMONWEALTH,
AMERICA AN D
EUROPE.

Conforming largely
to forecast, and adher-
ing to the Conserva-
tive earlier policy
statement “the right
road for Britain” the
manifesto proposed to
sweep away Socialist
industrial controls and
to ease the tax burden
by “axing” Govern-
ment expenditure.

The manifesto, which
short foreword
party leader Win-
ton Churchill, stands
fer compulsory service
to sustain British de-
fence It said that
peace was the party’s
supreme purpose but
thought the financial
burden of defence
could be “sensibly re-
duced”.

It declared that an
immediate survey of
Britain’s £750,000,000
annual Defence Bill
was imperative.

All three boys were registered
and began classes the following
day.

Theatrical producers and talent
scouts are in constant touch with
Madame Essertier who was just
an educator when she became
connected with the schoo] at its
foundation,

She admits that 25 years of
contact with it has changed her
and put the show business in her
blood.

Although the artistic director of
the school, who serves without
pay, is Julian Bertheau, famous
actor at the Comedie Francaise,
he is so occupied that he can only
act in an advisory capacity. So the
burden of the direction falls on
Madame Essertier’s shoulders.

No Change
In School |
Requirements

Additional school accommoda-
dion which the island requires is,
being provided as rapidly as |
finances will permit, said the
Governor to the House of Assem-_
bly in a reply to a message from}
that Body on the subject of}
Secondary School accommodation. |

The Governor informed the}
House that “the Government has
no reason to believe that the
Island's requirements have altered
materially since the publication
of the memorandum entitled “A
Policy for Education” prepared by
the Department of Education.”

Bushey’s Alley
Is Clean

Busbey’s Alley is now decid-
edly clean, and a street that the
busiest housewife would loiter in
to make the best choice of the
many greens and vegetables that
are seen in the hawkers’ trays.

A week ago the street was be-
coming mossy and dirty and the
atmosphere not just what one
would associate with the selling
of vegetables and greens; but the
Commissioners of Health for St.
Michael at their last meeting de-
cided to have the street flushed
frequently with water.

The hawkers seem to have ad-
justed themselves to this new
cleanliness, and yesterday, they
were to be seen ranged off on
either side of the street as though
they were out to show their full
appreciation Of the scheme of the
Commissioners of Health.

$500,000 For
Seawell Runway

The House of Assembly yester-
day passed a resolution for the
sum of $500,000 to begin the con-
struction of the new runway at
Seawell. The money was the esti-
mated expenditure to March 31,
1950.

Mr. Adams (L) who moved the
passing of the Resolution, said that
the urgency of the case arose be-
cause they wanted to push the
work before the rainy season
came,

Mr. F. L. Walcott (L) seconded
the motion and said that it was
generally admitted that the run-
way at Seawell could not keep up
as it was doing, bearing heavier
planes, for long. The question was
either that they wanted the new
runway or they did not and while
they were about it, they could
as well make a good job of it.

563 Prefer
To Die

ROME, Jan. 24.

The 563 striking tubercular pa-
tients at a military sanatorium
here today threatened mass sul-
cides, if the authorities enforce a
recent Defence Ministry order to
transfer them.

In a manifesto to Left-wing
newspapers, vhe patients said that
two of the strikers had died in the
past week because of “distress at
the thought of leaving this sana~
torium which we know so well.

They added, “We will not use
violence against those who stamp
on our rights and on our sorrow.
We will only use violence against
ourselves.”

Last week armed police were
called in to remove the patients
from the sanatoriums administra-
tive offices, which they had occu-
pied after throwing out the direc-
tor.

Police were again called to the
hospital last night to quell a de-
monstration by the patients.

**Leotaud’’
Survivors .
Go Home

THE FIVE Vincentians of the 6-
man crew of the Schooner “Alna
Leotaud”, who arrived at Barba-
dos about cight hours after their
vessel was sunk on Monday, left
for home the same night by the
“Lady Nelson”.

The “Alna Leotaud” was sunk
after being involved in an acci-
dent with the “Lady Nelson”
when about 40 miles to the East
of St. Lucia.

Jeffers James, the other mem-
ber of the crew, is still here. He
is from Dominica which is out
of the route of the “Lady Nelson”
when going south.

James spent Monday night on
the schooner “Reginald N. Wal-
lace” and has settled down to
work as one of the crew of that
vessel.

Dressed in a white merino and
a much-worn khaki pants kept
in place by a two-inch leather
girdle, James yesterday rose re-
luctantly from his seat on the
deck of the “Wallace” to give the
“Advocate” a story of the acci-
dent.

He said that the “Alna Leo-
taud” got struck on the starboard
side and within ten minutes the
whole vessel was submerged.

Not Afraid

During the accident, the row-
boat into which they got was
damaged to the ex¥ent that it
began to leak. St. Lucia was in
sight but about 30 miles away .
The men bailed the rowboat and
pulled for land. They did not
have any food or water in the
rowboat. He was of the opinion
that they could not have reached
land unless some ship had come
to their assistance, for the sea was
choppy and the wind high. “T
hever lost my nerves, however,
nor was I afraid. I was deter-
mined to reach St. Lucia”, James
said.

He said that when the crew
saw the “Nelson” returning about
2% hours after, every man’s
spirit was raised.

James expressed the hope that
he would be allowed by the
authorities here to work, rather
than be sent back to Dominica.
His reason was that he has saved
nothing of his belongings and he
would stand a chance to get some-
thing.

The Harbour and Shipping De-
partment is responsible for James
while he is at Barbados.

Death Off The Road

THE general public were gradually be-
ginning to feel that the founding of the
Road Safety Association was an indication
that the necessity for ensuring safety on
‘the roads had at last been brought home
to every user whether motorist or pedes-
trian, but the number of accidents within
recent weeks would seem to point in an-
other. direction.

The increasing number of vehicles, the
greater volume of traffic and the more
frequent use of the roads both for busi-
ness and pleasure would seem to demand
the exercise of greater care and caution
and a more exact obedience to the traffic
laws. But this care can hardly be said to
be universal in this island to-day.

An added factor of difficulty is the nar-
rowness of the roads as compared with the
regulation size of vehicles and the fact
that cross roads and side roads have not
been-laid out with any regularity and pro-
vide death traps with the short curves and
sharp corners within a few yards of each
other. These are natural conditions
against which all the skill and experience
of the driver is powerless.

With these disadvantages in his way, it is
the duty of the motorist in Barbados to
exercise extreme care. The strict obedience
of traffic laws and the desire to preserve the
safety of other users of the roads would be
a standard of conduct which should do
much to make road travel a pleasure and
in the slogan of the safety association:
“Keep death off the roads.”

As has been pointed out already, motor-
ing is not an anti-social act neither is the
healthy exercise of walking illegal; but
they can both be dangerous if there is not
that caution by both sections of road users.

From time to time the laws governing
the use of the roads have been amended.
And the primary reason behind these
amendments is to keep the law abreast of
the changing conditions.

The introduction of “islands” at road
junctions, metal studs at major roads and
along dangerous curves, the provision of
parking places and the system of one-way
traffic in some of the city streets are but
a few of the measures taken to make travel
safein this island. The law-abiding citizen
takes notice of these; and, even where the

signs for silent zones and the speed limit
are placed in positions where they can
hardly be seen, tries to conform to the gen-
eral rule.

It is not sufficient to depend on skill and
dexterity in handling a potentially lethal
vehicle such as a car or to rely on luck to
avoid being knocked down when jay-
walking along the road; the primary duty
of the road user is to prevent accidents.
And the only method is the exercise of
care while on the roads, remembering that
it is often the innocent and unoffending
bystander or passer-by who pays with his
or her life for the mistakes of another.

It is time, however, that more attention
be paid to the habit of “speeding” by motor-
ists, who depend on their skill and dexterity
in handling the steering wheel to bring
them out of accidents. This habit is not
limited to the drivers of cars; "bus drivers
and those who use lorries for haulage also
indulge in this dangerous pastime. One
method of remedy is to ensure that there
is no excuse for not knowing and not see-
ing the speed limit signs. These should
have large numbers on circular discs and
be conspicuously placed at the desired
spots. There could then be no excuse for
ignoring them or the restriction imposed.
When this is done there should be a strict
enforcement of the law and heavy penal-
ties imposed on those who persist in flout-
ing it. It is as well that anomalies be

removed in order to prevent disrespect
for the law. The safety of every user of
the road—pedestrian and motorist alike—
depends on continued public vigilance.




















































Disappointing. Dull |

LONDON, (By Mail)

The man-in-the~street says he
knows little about the Colombo
Conference of Foreign Ministers
which met in Ceylon, though
now his knowledge ought to be
enlarged, for almos without ¢x-
ception, British newspapers com-
mendted on the an
achievement of the Foreign

’ Meeting in Ceylon.

There is in Britain a regretful
im) on that the Conference
achieved little and was unexpect-
edly disappointing and dull. But
the Manchester Guardian says,
with a keener appreciation of the
character and aims of the Con-
ference that “those who are dis-
appointed have misunderstood
both the nature of the Conference
and the reason of its importance.
It was an experiment to test a new
idea, the idea of specialised or
functional Commonwealth con-
ferences which are to supple-
ment the occasional conference of
the Dominion Prime Ministers.” _

These meetings of which this
Conference was the first, are
principally for the exchange of
opinions and are only experi-
mentally attempting to reach de-
cisions on the basis of mutual ex-
change of ideas and information.
Co-ordinating Commonwealth de-
cisions of policy is a new idea in
itself and progress towards “com-
mon action” cannot be expected to
be fast.

A Precedent

The Colombo Conference de-
monstrated—though theoretically
rather than practically—the cohe-
sion of Eastern and Western
members of the Commonwealth
body and became the precedent
for a new form of exchange ma-
chine between representatives of
the Commonwealth. In this re-
spect Press opinion is agreed that
it was a success, a success in the
long term.

What were the subjects on the
agenda of the Foreign Ministers?
For some weeks now, the meeting
has been awaited and the agenda
anticipated. Large loomed the
question of the recognition of
Communist China and the “line”
to be taken by the various mem-
ber countries. The problem of
stopping the flood of Communist
in East and South East Asia, with
particular reference to economic
aid to Burma, was of the greatest
importance and involved French
Indo-China and the recognition
and suppert to be granted to the
Emperor Bao Dai. Here in Cey-
lon at a meeting of so many in-
terested parties was the oppor-
tunity to discuss the Japanese
Peace Treaty and, off the agenda,
the inter-Dominion rift over
Kashmir.

These briefly were the matters

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE

Hy M. V. Burnett

the Foreign Ministers were eX-
pected to discuss and work out
some measure of agreement and
compromise amongst themselves
respecting these grave matters of

a Commonwealth and further, of

world interest.
i Deep Rift

What happened at Colombo? In-
itially, the meetings were compli-
cated by recognition granted to
the Communist Mao Tse Tung re-
gime by India, Pakistan, Ceylon
and the U.K. The reluctance of
other members to follow suit re-
vealed a deep rift in Comrnon-
wealth conformity of principles.
While the three Asian Dominions
were keen to acknowledge China 's
new Government, Australia was
loud in voicing the South African,
Canadian and New Zealand desire
to keep in step with U.S. policy in
the Far East. No apparent agree-
ment was reached in the discus-
sions and it is felt that recognition
without prior consultation did
much to damage confidence in the
Commopwealth link. ale

This is one of the disappointing
results of the Conference and
along with it comes the Indo-
China question. “It would be un-
fortunate,” says the Times, “if the
same differences wefe to be re-
vealed with regard to the recogni-
tion of the Emperor Bao Dai in In-
do-China, regarded by most of the
other members of the Common-
wealth as the only hope against
Communism but by Mr. Nehru as
still a puppet of the French.”

In the British Press two figures
stand out at the Commonwealth
discussions, Prime Minister Sen-
anayke for his enthusiastic or-
ganisation and Pandit Nehru for
the dominant role he chose to
play. The quiet way in which he
banished the Australian mention
of a Pacific Pact (anti-Communist,
backed by U.S. arms) is comment-
ed upon.

Nehru Capable

The Manchester Guardian says
that the future of the Common-
wealth and South Egst Asia de-
pends on more than financial as-
sistance; on the ability to offer
ideas to the youth of the area,
such as were offered by Britain in
the East three hundred years ago
in the way of administration and
reform. Only Pandit Nehru is
capable of evoking the enthusi-
asms of youth, says the paper,
and it is ironical to see that as
his stature grows abroad so does
it shrink at home.

Also on the debit side of the
Conference balance sheet comes
the bee in Pandit Nehru’s bonnet,
which is Kashmir. The “Times”

expresses the very general and
genuine feeling that “Before the ;
full value of the.work can be
gained two things must first be
quarrel between India and Pakis-
tan must be brought to an end
and the British Government must
find a way to work as _closely
with the United States in Asia
and the Patific as it already does
in Europe and the Atlantic.” On
the Kashmir question, it is felt
that the Conference failed to
come up to scratch. Although
there were to- be “informal talks
on the subject in Colombo it is felt
in Britain that one of the most
concrete and useful tasks was
avoided and a Commonwealth
weakness exposed. Those who
have been urging that the Com-
monwealth should claim back the
Kashmir problem. from — the
United Nations feel disappointed
at the negative attitude of the
Commonwealth Foreign Ministers
regarding this problem.

Double Talk

On the question of UK. Parti-
cipation in both the Western
Union and Commonwealth affairs,
the communique issued from Cey-
lon stated that there was no Inq
compatibiligy and Britain could
play a useful role in both these
areas. The “Daily Express’ was
most emphatic in its scorn of this
view. The passage in the final
communique _ declares, “There
need be no inconsistency between
the policy followed by the United
Kingdom Government in relation
to Western Europe and the main-
tenance of traditional links be-
tween the United Kingdom and
the rest of the Commonwealth,”
that, says the Express, “is one
more instance of the double talk
which is clouding the future of
the Commonwealth and Empire.”
It quotes Mr. Fred Doidge of
New Zealand as saying that “If
Britain is to turn to Europe, and
if in the process the Common-
wealth Preference System is
weakened, or possibly destroyed,
this would mean throwing mil-
lions of men onthe economic
scrap heap. Although America is
sincere in her desire to bring the
system of integrated European
economy, she is equally determin-
ed to break down our system of
Commonwealth Preference... . It
might easily shatter the Common-
wealth into pieces”. The Express
says that against the “majestic
and massive concept” of the Com-
monwealth, the Western Union
“is a mere political expedient
to fight Communism in Europe...
intended to flatter American
idealism” and blandish dollars
out of Washington. The paper
warns all Tory candidates to de-
clare themselves for one or the
other. Both together are incom-
patible,” says the Express.

Lunchtime Author From
British Guiana
By lan Gale

LONDON, ,By Mail).

Edgar Mittelholzer of British
Guiana, whose new nevel,
“Morning at the Office” is being
published by Heinemann in May,
must be the most imdustrious
author in London.

When the rest of the staff of the
British Council Book section,
where he works all day, goes out
to lunch, Edgar stays behind ai
nis desk. There, munching a
sandwich as he scribbles, he does
most of his writing. Later, during
the houf’s train journey from his
office to his home in Bagshott, he
writes a bit more. After dinner
he picks up his pen again and
makes a fair copy of what he has
written during the day.. The
week-ends, Edgar thinks, are
just made for writing; but oc-
casionally, when there is a
Wagner concert at the Albert
Hall, he plays hookey for a
while .

Edgar has aiways worked, and
written hard. “For as .ong as I
can remember,” he told me, “I
have been writing stories, When
I was ten * used to fill exercise
books with tales during the
school helidays. Just rubbish of
course — influenced mostly by the
silent films of the day. It was
not. until 1928 that I began to
write seriously. I started by
contributing a series of political
articles to a Georgetown news-
paper.” Since then he has writ-
ten scores of short stories, several
full length novels and hundreds
of newspaper articles.

more money from selling his
paintings than he did from his
writing. He used to paint land-
Scapes in water-colour, but has
given it up now for want of
time. During the war he served
in the Trinidad Royal Navy Re-
serve’ and had the opportunity
of visiting a great many of the
West India islands. After leaving
the navy he got married and
settled in Trinidad, here he did
a variety of jobs, working at one
bime as booking clerk at the
Queen’s Park Hotel.

Edgar has always been very
keen on music, as most Guianese
are, and in his spare time he
organised gramaphone concerts
for the British Council. Naturally
he kept up his writing, and many
of his short stories appeared in
the Barbados literary magazine,
BIM. Also, his first novel, “Cor-

entyne Thunder,” which he
describes as ‘sociological’? was
published in England at this

time.

After a year in England Edgar
has decided to live here perman-
ently. He still writes about the
West Indies, but he finds it much
easier because being far away,
he can now see the islands in per-
spective. He has just finished a
novel called “Shadows Move
Among Them, which he says is
a semiphantasy set in the jungle
of British Guiana, and is now
busily engaged in writing an-
other. I fear that this one may

By Rnnice Savoury ‘

ON the afternoon of Tuesday 17th, two Antiguans
were fishing in a motor launch in the vicinity of
English Harbour when they sighted a small sloop
flying a distress signal. As they steered their launch
nearer they observed the number 11286 unevenly
scribbled on the ship’s bow and her name “Ruben”
on the stern, The 20-ton rig

The two Antiguans heard a chorus of weird
phrases, none of which could be understood. Then
they made gestures of hunger and thirst and the
two young fellows responded by throwing all of
their bait on to the vessel.

It was promptly fried on the deck and quick-
ly divided and devoured by those starving
mouths.

The launch guided the mysterious ete of

le into the shelter ur.
ema toot | Soa ber anchors she had to be tied
alongside. It was,a pitiful sight to see those weary
folk as they slowly stepped on to the historic ground
of Nelson’s Dockyard. Fifty-six in all, one won-
dered if they would ever cease coming out of the
hold. Spanish they spoke.

Only one man could make himself understood
in a little broken English, two others spoke French
and Italian as well as Portuguese.

With wet clothes clinging to their bodies they did
not look in any way out of place in the midst of
ruins. In fact, the heavily lined faces of short,
elderly, seafaring men, women’s haggard sad ex-
pressions, stringy hair, together with dark faded
garments seemed to be in complete harmony with
the surrounding dilapidated buildings. They gave
the appearance of wrecks mingling with wreckage.

To them it seemed a miracle to be alive knowing
that their most dangerous experience had occurred
not many hours previously when their smack was
lodged on a reef. The nine women fell on their
faces, kissed the ground, looked to the heavens and
begged that a Roman Catholic priest be sent to
hold a mass. Their first spacious night’s rest for
many weeks was in the basement of ancient
buildings.

On arrival of the priest in the early morning, he
was shocked at their condition of fatigue and hun-
ger. He felt they were too weak to attend a mass
that morning. He went into the village and bought
bread and milk which he brought to them. A mass
was held on the following morning.

Government assisted with essential foodstuff but
a brighter atmosphere was apparent among them
all after the many liberal contributions of food and
clothing were showered on them by the members of
the Holy Name Society.

LA GUIRA—SALVATION

A glance around the dockyard a day and a half
after their arrival still gave one the impression that
these people were crouching, bending and walking
slowly. A thin, middle-aged woman with flowing
ashy hair sat under a cordea tree mending dresses
while half-clothed toddlers hung around her. A
sudden shower of rain caused thirty odd on the
deck of the “Ruben” to disappear like lightning into
the hold, a stunt they were accustomed to. Eight
men sought shelter under a small stone arch of
Nelson’s boat house. How comfortably they fitted
in and remained there half an hour or more babbl-
ing their language. One had his arm in a sling,
two others remained silent with sneering hard faces.
Their weakness was evident when six comparative-
ly young Spaniards with great difficulty manoeuvred
a cask of water on to the sloop’s deck. Among them
there was a professor, the only golden-haired man
in the lot. Small and slight of stature, his attire
consisted of dingy brown striped pyjamas. He said
he had left Spain because he did not approve of
the Franco regime; he dreaded leaving here and
would have been happy if he could have been
accepted to teach Spanish in the schools. Others
offered themselves as mechanics and one young
girl offered her services as a maid. They were
mostly all peasant folk from the Canary Islands,
and said they could no longer stand the appalling
conditions there. They would prefer to sink to the
bottom of the ocean rather than return to Las

Palmas and their only hope and salvation would be
La Guiara.

There were four or five pretty young girls with
tanned skins betwéen the ages of twelve and
twenty. They wept with joy and embraced the
native girls of Latin type. At first it was difficult
for the senoritas to realize that their new friends
could not understand their language. Our girls

were so touched they took off their own brightly |

coloured sweaters and handed them to the senoritas.
One girl took off her shoes and gave them to a
pregnant woman. This poor soul was worried
about clothing for the newcomer because it is most
likely there will be an addition to the party before
they reach their destination.

The owner of the “Ruben,” Manel Alezo, is in the
party. The Captain, Josef Suarez, said they had
first sailed to Dakar where they sold their gold and
clothing for stores. Five days after their departure
from Dakar, a French ship had assisted them with

lasted twenty-five days until they reached Antigua,
everybody was rationed to one small meal per day
and very little water. Time and again they had
been soaked in squalls and most of them were
suffering from cramp. Their legs, especially those
of the children, appeared to have chilblains,
It is said that fifty other similar ship loads have
departed from Las Palmas in recent months. The
Ruben’s passengers would have been all glad to
remain here, but as that was not possible, they de-
parted on the morning of the 20th for Venezuela
with great hopes for their uncertain future.

now exists, occasioned by most
unfortunate breakdowns on two
engines in the Diesel Generating
Plant at the Power Station.

The cause of the failures has
been diagnosed in both cases to
be a flaw in the material, a heavy
section fulcrum pin breaking in
the first case and a crankshaft
breaking in the second case, all
within a period of 12 hours of
each other ‘a

These two engines are entirely
recent additions to the Station

in the material is almost beyond
the human element to discover,
and although the resultant damage
ig severe enough, it can be con-
sidered fortunate that the damage

be definitely stated this was only
prevented by the prompt action
of the staff in attendance, bring-
ing the engines to a standstill
within seconds of the fractures

occurring,

Action was at once taken to
obtain the necessary replace-
ments, and I am happy to be able
to say that the new parts re-
quired are all available, and
shipping arrangements are in
hand. It may however be
possible to send some parts for
one of ‘the sets by Air, and if
this can be done it may be that
one engine will be running in
two or three weeks time, which
will permit the Company to re-
store the supply almost to full
capacity.

I should like to add a further
point in regard to security of
supply in the future. Another
Diesel Engine is on order which
should be delivered by October
this year and may be in operation
about Christmas

The Barbados Company applied

but owing to the di

astrous war which intervened it
was not possbile to obtain this.
In the meantime the old Plant
became sorely in need of replace-
ments, and again these could not
be obtained, and bearing in mind
the normal growth of an under-
taking, it is a little surprising
that it has been able to fulfill its
obligations as it has done,

Had it not been for the concen-
trated efforts and co-operation of

Do Not Trespass

To The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—Much has been Said by
the Senior Member for St. John
and the Junior Member for St.
Philip on Tuesday last about the
non-replacement of the roof of
the Mt. Tabor Boys’ School which
is alleged to have been blown off
during the high winds of August
31, 1949.

From the Newspaper report it
would seem that the Senior Mem-
ber for St. Joseph does not know










that there is no longer a Mt.
Tabor Boys’ School, and that
the two schools were amalga-
mated a year or two ago after the
appointed Headmistress was not

trespassing. The matter was re-
ported to the Department of
Education, and Miss Barrett was
instructed to proceed to take up
her duties on the appointed day.
The District Inspector escorted
her to ghe school on the appointed
day, bg: the lady was not allowed
to euter. The Chairman was
there to see that she did not tres-
pass, and as two other Ministers
were there to give him their
moral support, Miss Barrett,
thinking discretion the better
part of- valour, did not venture
out of the Inspector’s car.

The senior assistant of the
school remained in charge while
Miss Barrett remained at home
and drew her salary

Road Menace

To The Editor, The Advocate
SIR,—For several months I
have been using the Welches—
Kingston Road daily, and have
been noticing the following:—

(1) The skill and daring of
the drivers of buses. They swing
around corners and swerve in and
out among vehicles and pedestri-
ans, with perfect co-ordination
of brakes and accelerators, while
passengers sway about clutching

Between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, all areas except
Bridgetown should be “on” and between 4.30 p.m, and
7 a.m,, such capacity as is available, after giving due
priority to the needs of water pumping, baking, ice man-
ufacture, printing, ete., will be distributed as equally as
possible throughout the system by similar “on” periods
as have been effected during the past few days,



Load studies and experimental switching opera-
tions are being carried out continuously with a view
to evolving a workable Schedule and the Company
will be greatly assisted in this if all Consumers, Indus-
trial and Domestic, make sure that consumption for
both light and power is cut to the barest minimum at
the times when current is available, whether during
day or night.





Owing to many requests from Consumers as to
whether we could not give some notice of “cuts” to
the areas affected, we have decided, although it is not
standard practice, to switch “off” the area to be cut for
¥% minute, then switch “on” again for 4 minutes before
the final cut. By this means it is hoped that Consumers
will have time to put into operation their auxiliary
lighting. This method of switching will only be in
operation between the hours of 6 and 10 p.m.

The House of Assembly would iMphMfrri that: (a) during the 10-year period 1M0—9 the B.W. Indies sold all their exportable sugar to the United Kingdom at prices below which they could have obtained In consequence of the world shortage of sugar. (b) the 1950 price of Cuban sugar plus preference is £39, and the 1950 Canadian price, plus preference, about £42; the 1950 price to be paid for West Indian sugar is only £30. 10s. per ton The British Government is therefore purchasing the 1950 West Indian Sugar output at over £6 million less than what foreign sugar will cost. (c) The exportable surplus of B.W.I, sugar production for 1950 is approximately 730,000 tons. (dj acceptance of the nffrr under reference by the British Ministry of Food would prohibit the expansion of the local sugar industry to the level envisaged In the Colony's Ten Year Plan—which itself has the endorsement of His Majesty's Government—a level which the House considers essential to the maintenance of a tolerably decent standard of living for the population. The House desires to assure [Tour Excellency of Its willlngni-ss lo act in concert with all of the Kher West Indian Colonial Governments concerned in any action escalated to achieve success for He efforts of ihe B.W.I.

If the honourable member expected to exceed $3,000 then there was ample time for him to ask for more money.

60 Killed, Wounded
In Bandung ‘Mutiny’

: DJAKARTA, Jan. 24.
QIXTY Indonesian army men were killed or wounded in
S the Bandung fighting, the Chief of Staff of the Indo-

nesian armed forees, Colonial Simaturpang, said today.
The situation in Lembang 10 mifes north of Bandung was

still confused he said. is

He alleged that what happened in Bandung yesterday “was
really a mutiny by the large number of Dutch forces
stationed there. : }
Colonel Simaturpang said that
Indonesian authorities warn-
the Dutch Commander in

yy night about the possibility of
n outbreak.
The rebels passed Dutch posi-
ons as they entered the city, the
ndonesian Colonel said.

Westerling’s “Army of the

block any attempt at reinforcing
the city.

Westerling’s forces as they march-
ed past their barracks. Indonesian
soldiers in the Dutch forces, who
are drawn mainly from the east-
ern islands, and who are un-
sympathetic to the present Indo-

jubilant at Westerling’s success |
but were under strict orders from

' Slashed Taxes

| By FRASER WIGHTON

LONDON, Jan. 24.
‘THE British Conservative (Opposition) Party
today made its supreme bid to recapture con-
trol of Britain’s destinies with a manifesto naming
full employment as “No. 1 priority’’ if the party
wins a five years term of power.
The 22-page manifesto called “This is the Road’’

pinpointed also as chief aims:

SLASHED TAXES.

AN END TO NATION-
ALISATION.

HOMES FOR ALL.

FAIR FIELD FOR
ENTERPRISE.

TIGHTENING
OF BRITAIN’S
BONDS WITY THE
COMMONWEALTH,
AMERICA AN D
EUROPE.

Conforming largely
to forecast, and adher-
ing to the Conserva-
tive earlier policy
statement “the right
road for Britain” the
manifesto proposed to
sweep away Socialist
industrial controls and
to ease the tax burden
by “axing” Govern-
ment expenditure.

The manifesto, which
short foreword
party leader Win-
ton Churchill, stands
fer compulsory service
to sustain British de-
fence It said that
peace was the party’s
supreme purpose but
thought the financial
burden of defence
could be “sensibly re-
duced”.

It declared that an
immediate survey of
Britain’s £750,000,000
annual Defence Bill
was imperative.

All three boys were registered
and began classes the following
day.

Theatrical producers and talent
scouts are in constant touch with
Madame Essertier who was just
an educator when she became
connected with the schoo] at its
foundation,

She admits that 25 years of
contact with it has changed her
and put the show business in her
blood.

Although the artistic director of
the school, who serves without
pay, is Julian Bertheau, famous
actor at the Comedie Francaise,
he is so occupied that he can only
act in an advisory capacity. So the
burden of the direction falls on
Madame Essertier’s shoulders.

No Change
In School |
Requirements

Additional school accommoda-
dion which the island requires is,
being provided as rapidly as |
finances will permit, said the
Governor to the House of Assem-_
bly in a reply to a message from}
that Body on the subject of}
Secondary School accommodation. |

The Governor informed the}
House that “the Government has
no reason to believe that the
Island's requirements have altered
materially since the publication
of the memorandum entitled “A
Policy for Education” prepared by
the Department of Education.”

Bushey’s Alley
Is Clean

Busbey’s Alley is now decid-
edly clean, and a street that the
busiest housewife would loiter in
to make the best choice of the
many greens and vegetables that
are seen in the hawkers’ trays.

A week ago the street was be-
coming mossy and dirty and the
atmosphere not just what one
would associate with the selling
of vegetables and greens; but the
Commissioners of Health for St.
Michael at their last meeting de-
cided to have the street flushed
frequently with water.

The hawkers seem to have ad-
justed themselves to this new
cleanliness, and yesterday, they
were to be seen ranged off on
either side of the street as though
they were out to show their full
appreciation Of the scheme of the
Commissioners of Health.

$500,000 For
Seawell Runway

The House of Assembly yester-
day passed a resolution for the
sum of $500,000 to begin the con-
struction of the new runway at
Seawell. The money was the esti-
mated expenditure to March 31,
1950.

Mr. Adams (L) who moved the
passing of the Resolution, said that
the urgency of the case arose be-
cause they wanted to push the
work before the rainy season
came,

Mr. F. L. Walcott (L) seconded
the motion and said that it was
generally admitted that the run-
way at Seawell could not keep up
as it was doing, bearing heavier
planes, for long. The question was
either that they wanted the new
runway or they did not and while
they were about it, they could
as well make a good job of it.

563 Prefer
To Die

ROME, Jan. 24.

The 563 striking tubercular pa-
tients at a military sanatorium
here today threatened mass sul-
cides, if the authorities enforce a
recent Defence Ministry order to
transfer them.

In a manifesto to Left-wing
newspapers, vhe patients said that
two of the strikers had died in the
past week because of “distress at
the thought of leaving this sana~
torium which we know so well.

They added, “We will not use
violence against those who stamp
on our rights and on our sorrow.
We will only use violence against
ourselves.”

Last week armed police were
called in to remove the patients
from the sanatoriums administra-
tive offices, which they had occu-
pied after throwing out the direc-
tor.

Police were again called to the
hospital last night to quell a de-
monstration by the patients.

**Leotaud’’
Survivors .
Go Home

THE FIVE Vincentians of the 6-
man crew of the Schooner “Alna
Leotaud”, who arrived at Barba-
dos about cight hours after their
vessel was sunk on Monday, left
for home the same night by the
“Lady Nelson”.

The “Alna Leotaud” was sunk
after being involved in an acci-
dent with the “Lady Nelson”
when about 40 miles to the East
of St. Lucia.

Jeffers James, the other mem-
ber of the crew, is still here. He
is from Dominica which is out
of the route of the “Lady Nelson”
when going south.

James spent Monday night on
the schooner “Reginald N. Wal-
lace” and has settled down to
work as one of the crew of that
vessel.

Dressed in a white merino and
a much-worn khaki pants kept
in place by a two-inch leather
girdle, James yesterday rose re-
luctantly from his seat on the
deck of the “Wallace” to give the
“Advocate” a story of the acci-
dent.

He said that the “Alna Leo-
taud” got struck on the starboard
side and within ten minutes the
whole vessel was submerged.

Not Afraid

During the accident, the row-
boat into which they got was
damaged to the ex¥ent that it
began to leak. St. Lucia was in
sight but about 30 miles away .
The men bailed the rowboat and
pulled for land. They did not
have any food or water in the
rowboat. He was of the opinion
that they could not have reached
land unless some ship had come
to their assistance, for the sea was
choppy and the wind high. “T
hever lost my nerves, however,
nor was I afraid. I was deter-
mined to reach St. Lucia”, James
said.

He said that when the crew
saw the “Nelson” returning about
2% hours after, every man’s
spirit was raised.

James expressed the hope that
he would be allowed by the
authorities here to work, rather
than be sent back to Dominica.
His reason was that he has saved
nothing of his belongings and he
would stand a chance to get some-
thing.

The Harbour and Shipping De-
partment is responsible for James
while he is at Barbados.

Death Off The Road

THE general public were gradually be-
ginning to feel that the founding of the
Road Safety Association was an indication
that the necessity for ensuring safety on
‘the roads had at last been brought home
to every user whether motorist or pedes-
trian, but the number of accidents within
recent weeks would seem to point in an-
other. direction.

The increasing number of vehicles, the
greater volume of traffic and the more
frequent use of the roads both for busi-
ness and pleasure would seem to demand
the exercise of greater care and caution
and a more exact obedience to the traffic
laws. But this care can hardly be said to
be universal in this island to-day.

An added factor of difficulty is the nar-
rowness of the roads as compared with the
regulation size of vehicles and the fact
that cross roads and side roads have not
been-laid out with any regularity and pro-
vide death traps with the short curves and
sharp corners within a few yards of each
other. These are natural conditions
against which all the skill and experience
of the driver is powerless.

With these disadvantages in his way, it is
the duty of the motorist in Barbados to
exercise extreme care. The strict obedience
of traffic laws and the desire to preserve the
safety of other users of the roads would be
a standard of conduct which should do
much to make road travel a pleasure and
in the slogan of the safety association:
“Keep death off the roads.”

As has been pointed out already, motor-
ing is not an anti-social act neither is the
healthy exercise of walking illegal; but
they can both be dangerous if there is not
that caution by both sections of road users.

From time to time the laws governing
the use of the roads have been amended.
And the primary reason behind these
amendments is to keep the law abreast of
the changing conditions.

The introduction of “islands” at road
junctions, metal studs at major roads and
along dangerous curves, the provision of
parking places and the system of one-way
traffic in some of the city streets are but
a few of the measures taken to make travel
safein this island. The law-abiding citizen
takes notice of these; and, even where the

signs for silent zones and the speed limit
are placed in positions where they can
hardly be seen, tries to conform to the gen-
eral rule.

It is not sufficient to depend on skill and
dexterity in handling a potentially lethal
vehicle such as a car or to rely on luck to
avoid being knocked down when jay-
walking along the road; the primary duty
of the road user is to prevent accidents.
And the only method is the exercise of
care while on the roads, remembering that
it is often the innocent and unoffending
bystander or passer-by who pays with his
or her life for the mistakes of another.

It is time, however, that more attention
be paid to the habit of “speeding” by motor-
ists, who depend on their skill and dexterity
in handling the steering wheel to bring
them out of accidents. This habit is not
limited to the drivers of cars; "bus drivers
and those who use lorries for haulage also
indulge in this dangerous pastime. One
method of remedy is to ensure that there
is no excuse for not knowing and not see-
ing the speed limit signs. These should
have large numbers on circular discs and
be conspicuously placed at the desired
spots. There could then be no excuse for
ignoring them or the restriction imposed.
When this is done there should be a strict
enforcement of the law and heavy penal-
ties imposed on those who persist in flout-
ing it. It is as well that anomalies be

removed in order to prevent disrespect
for the law. The safety of every user of
the road—pedestrian and motorist alike—
depends on continued public vigilance.




















































Disappointing. Dull |

LONDON, (By Mail)

The man-in-the~street says he
knows little about the Colombo
Conference of Foreign Ministers
which met in Ceylon, though
now his knowledge ought to be
enlarged, for almos without ¢x-
ception, British newspapers com-
mendted on the an
achievement of the Foreign

’ Meeting in Ceylon.

There is in Britain a regretful
im) on that the Conference
achieved little and was unexpect-
edly disappointing and dull. But
the Manchester Guardian says,
with a keener appreciation of the
character and aims of the Con-
ference that “those who are dis-
appointed have misunderstood
both the nature of the Conference
and the reason of its importance.
It was an experiment to test a new
idea, the idea of specialised or
functional Commonwealth con-
ferences which are to supple-
ment the occasional conference of
the Dominion Prime Ministers.” _

These meetings of which this
Conference was the first, are
principally for the exchange of
opinions and are only experi-
mentally attempting to reach de-
cisions on the basis of mutual ex-
change of ideas and information.
Co-ordinating Commonwealth de-
cisions of policy is a new idea in
itself and progress towards “com-
mon action” cannot be expected to
be fast.

A Precedent

The Colombo Conference de-
monstrated—though theoretically
rather than practically—the cohe-
sion of Eastern and Western
members of the Commonwealth
body and became the precedent
for a new form of exchange ma-
chine between representatives of
the Commonwealth. In this re-
spect Press opinion is agreed that
it was a success, a success in the
long term.

What were the subjects on the
agenda of the Foreign Ministers?
For some weeks now, the meeting
has been awaited and the agenda
anticipated. Large loomed the
question of the recognition of
Communist China and the “line”
to be taken by the various mem-
ber countries. The problem of
stopping the flood of Communist
in East and South East Asia, with
particular reference to economic
aid to Burma, was of the greatest
importance and involved French
Indo-China and the recognition
and suppert to be granted to the
Emperor Bao Dai. Here in Cey-
lon at a meeting of so many in-
terested parties was the oppor-
tunity to discuss the Japanese
Peace Treaty and, off the agenda,
the inter-Dominion rift over
Kashmir.

These briefly were the matters

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE

Hy M. V. Burnett

the Foreign Ministers were eX-
pected to discuss and work out
some measure of agreement and
compromise amongst themselves
respecting these grave matters of

a Commonwealth and further, of

world interest.
i Deep Rift

What happened at Colombo? In-
itially, the meetings were compli-
cated by recognition granted to
the Communist Mao Tse Tung re-
gime by India, Pakistan, Ceylon
and the U.K. The reluctance of
other members to follow suit re-
vealed a deep rift in Comrnon-
wealth conformity of principles.
While the three Asian Dominions
were keen to acknowledge China 's
new Government, Australia was
loud in voicing the South African,
Canadian and New Zealand desire
to keep in step with U.S. policy in
the Far East. No apparent agree-
ment was reached in the discus-
sions and it is felt that recognition
without prior consultation did
much to damage confidence in the
Commopwealth link. ale

This is one of the disappointing
results of the Conference and
along with it comes the Indo-
China question. “It would be un-
fortunate,” says the Times, “if the
same differences wefe to be re-
vealed with regard to the recogni-
tion of the Emperor Bao Dai in In-
do-China, regarded by most of the
other members of the Common-
wealth as the only hope against
Communism but by Mr. Nehru as
still a puppet of the French.”

In the British Press two figures

discussions, Prime Minister Sen-
anayke for his enthusiastic or-
ganisation and Pandit Nehru for
the dominant role he chose to
play. The quiet way in which he
banished the Australian mention

backed by U.S. arms) is comment-
ed upon.

Nehru Capable

The Manchester Guardian says
that the future of the Common-
wealth and South Egst Asia de-
pends on more than financial as-
sistance; on the ability to offer
ideas to the youth of the area,
such as were offered by Britain in
the East three hundred years ago
in the way of administration and
reform. Only Pandit Nehru is
capable of evoking the enthusi-
asms of youth, says the paper,
and it is ironical to see that as
his stature grows abroad so does
it shrink at home.

Also on the debit side of the
Conference balance sheet comes
the bee in Pandit Nehru’s bonnet,
which is Kashmir. The “Times”

expresses the very general and
genuine feeling that “Before the ;

tan must be brought to an end
and the British Government must
find a way to work as _closely
with the United States in Asia
and the Patific as it already does

the Kashmir question, it is felt
that the Conference failed to
come up to scratch. Although
there were to- be “informal talks
on the subject in Colombo it is felt
in Britain that one of the most
concrete and useful tasks was
avoided and a Commonwealth
weakness exposed. Those who
have been urging that the Com-
monwealth should claim back the
Kashmir problem. from — the
United Nations feel disappointed
at the negative attitude of the
Commonwealth Foreign Ministers
regarding this problem.

Double Talk

On the question of UK. Parti-
cipation in both the Western
Union and Commonwealth affairs,
the communique issued from Cey-
lon stated that there was no Inq
compatibiligy and Britain could
play a useful role in both these
areas. The “Daily Express’ was
most emphatic in its scorn of this
view. The passage in the final
communique _ declares, “There
need be no inconsistency between
the policy followed by the United
Kingdom Government in relation
to Western Europe and the main-
tenance of traditional links be-
tween the United Kingdom and
the rest of the Commonwealth,”
that, says the Express, “is one
more instance of the double talk
which is clouding the future of
the Commonwealth and Empire.”
It quotes Mr. Fred Doidge of
New Zealand as saying that “If
Britain is to turn to Europe, and
if in the process the Common-
wealth Preference System is
weakened, or possibly destroyed,
this would mean throwing mil-
lions of men onthe economic
scrap heap. Although America is
sincere in her desire to bring the
system of integrated European
economy, she is equally determin-
ed to break down our system of
Commonwealth Preference... . It
might easily shatter the Common-
wealth into pieces”. The Express
says that against the “majestic
and massive concept” of the Com-
monwealth, the Western Union
“is a mere political expedient
to fight Communism in Europe...
intended to flatter American
idealism” and blandish dollars
out of Washington. The paper
warns all Tory candidates to de-
clare themselves for one or the
other. Both together are incom-
patible,” says the Express.

Lunchtime Author From
British Guiana
By lan Gale

LONDON, ,By Mail).

Edgar Mittelholzer of British
Guiana, whose new nevel,
“Morning at the Office” is being
published by Heinemann in May,
must be the most imdustrious
author in London.

When the rest of the staff of the
British Council Book section,
where he works all day, goes out
to lunch, Edgar stays behind ai
nis desk. There, munching a
sandwich as he scribbles, he does
most of his writing. Later, during
the houf’s train journey from his
office to his home in Bagshott, he
writes a bit more. After dinner
he picks up his pen again and
makes a fair copy of what he has
written during the day.. The
week-ends, Edgar thinks, are
just made for writing; but oc-
casionally, when there is a
Wagner concert at the Albert
Hall, he plays hookey for a
while .

Edgar has aiways worked, and
written hard. “For as .ong as I
can remember,” he told me, “I
have been writing stories, When
I was ten * used to fill exercise
books with tales during the
school helidays. Just rubbish of
course — influenced mostly by the
silent films of the day. It was
not. until 1928 that I began to
write seriously. I started by
contributing a series of political
articles to a Georgetown news-
paper.” Since then he has writ-
ten scores of short stories, several
full length novels and hundreds
of newspaper articles.

a writer. At first he used to make
more money from selling his
paintings than he did from his
writing. He used to paint land-
Scapes in water-colour, but has
given it up now for want of
time. During the war he served
in the Trinidad Royal Navy Re-
serve’ and had the opportunity
of visiting a great many of the
West India islands. After leaving
the navy he got married and
settled in Trinidad, here he did
a variety of jobs, working at one
bime as booking clerk at the
Queen’s Park Hotel.

Edgar has always been very
keen on music, as most Guianese
are, and in his spare time he
organised gramaphone concerts
for the British Council. Naturally
he kept up his writing, and many
of his short stories appeared in
the Barbados literary magazine,
BIM. Also, his first novel, “Cor-

entyne Thunder,” which he
describes as ‘sociological’? was
published in England at this

time.

After a year in England Edgar
has decided to live here perman-
ently. He still writes about the
West Indies, but he finds it much
easier because being far away,
he can now see the islands in per-
spective. He has just finished a
novel called “Shadows Move
Among Them, which he says is
a semiphantasy set in the jungle
of British Guiana, and is now
busily engaged in writing an-
other. I fear that this one may

By Rnnice Savoury ‘

ON the afternoon of Tuesday 17th, two Antiguans
were fishing in a motor launch in the vicinity of
English Harbour when they sighted a small sloop
flying a distress signal. As they steered their launch
nearer they observed the number 11286 unevenly
scribbled on the ship’s bow and her name “Ruben”
on the stern, The 20-ton rig

The two Antiguans heard a chorus of weird
phrases, none of which could be understood. Then
they made gestures of hunger and thirst and the
two young fellows responded by throwing all of
their bait on to the vessel.

It was promptly fried on the deck and quick-
ly divided and devoured by those starving
mouths.

The launch guided the mysterious ete of

le into the shelter ur.
ema toot | Soa ber anchors she had to be tied
alongside. It was,a pitiful sight to see those weary
folk as they slowly stepped on to the historic ground
of Nelson’s Dockyard. Fifty-six in all, one won-
dered if they would ever cease coming out of the
hold. Spanish they spoke.

Only one man could make himself understood
in a little broken English, two others spoke French
and Italian as well as Portuguese.

With wet clothes clinging to their bodies they did
not look in any way out of place in the midst of
ruins. In fact, the heavily lined faces of short,
elderly, seafaring men, women’s haggard sad ex-
pressions, stringy hair, together with dark faded
garments seemed to be in complete harmony with
the surrounding dilapidated buildings. They gave
the appearance of wrecks mingling with wreckage.

To them it seemed a miracle to be alive knowing
that their most dangerous experience had occurred
not many hours previously when their smack was
lodged on a reef. The nine women fell on their
faces, kissed the ground, looked to the heavens and
begged that a Roman Catholic priest be sent to
hold a mass. Their first spacious night’s rest for
many weeks was in the basement of ancient
buildings.

On arrival of the priest in the early morning, he
was shocked at their condition of fatigue and hun-
ger. He felt they were too weak to attend a mass
that morning. He went into the village and bought
bread and milk which he brought to them. A mass
was held on the following morning.

Government assisted with essential foodstuff but
a brighter atmosphere was apparent among them
all after the many liberal contributions of food and
clothing were showered on them by the members of
the Holy Name Society.

LA GUIRA—SALVATION

A glance around the dockyard a day and a half
after their arrival still gave one the impression that
these people were crouching, bending and walking
slowly. A thin, middle-aged woman with flowing
ashy hair sat under a cordea tree mending dresses
while half-clothed toddlers hung around her. A
sudden shower of rain caused thirty odd on the
deck of the “Ruben” to disappear like lightning into
the hold, a stunt they were accustomed to. Eight
men sought shelter under a small stone arch of
Nelson’s boat house. How comfortably they fitted
in and remained there half an hour or more babbl-
ing their language. One had his arm in a sling,
two others remained silent with sneering hard faces.
Their weakness was evident when six comparative-
ly young Spaniards with great difficulty manoeuvred
a cask of water on to the sloop’s deck. Among them
there was a professor, the only golden-haired man
in the lot. Small and slight of stature, his attire
consisted of dingy brown striped pyjamas. He said
he had left Spain because he did not approve of
the Franco regime; he dreaded leaving here and
would have been happy if he could have been
accepted to teach Spanish in the schools. Others
offered themselves as mechanics and one young
girl offered her services as a maid. They were
mostly all peasant folk from the Canary Islands,
and said they could no longer stand the appalling
conditions there. They would prefer to sink to the
bottom of the ocean rather than return to Las

Palmas and their only hope and salvation would be
La Guiara.

There were four or five pretty young girls with
tanned skins betwéen the ages of twelve and
twenty. They wept with joy and embraced the
native girls of Latin type. At first it was difficult
for the senoritas to realize that their new friends
could not understand their language. Our girls

were so touched they took off their own brightly |

coloured sweaters and handed them to the senoritas.
One girl took off her shoes and gave them to a
pregnant woman. This poor soul was worried
about clothing for the newcomer because it is most
likely there will be an addition to the party before
they reach their destination.

The owner of the “Ruben,” Manel Alezo, is in the
party. The Captain, Josef Suarez, said they had
first sailed to Dakar where they sold their gold and
clothing for stores. Five days after their departure
from Dakar, a French ship had assisted them with

lasted twenty-five days until they reached Antigua,
everybody was rationed to one small meal per day
and very little water. Time and again they had
been soaked in squalls and most of them were
suffering from cramp. Their legs, especially those
of the children, appeared to have chilblains,
It is said that fifty other similar ship loads have
departed from Las Palmas in recent months. The
Ruben’s passengers would have been all glad to
remain here, but as that was not possible, they de-
parted on the morning of the 20th for Venezuela
with great hopes for their uncertain future.

SIR,—As representative of

to express my thanks and appre-

co-operating in limiting the use of
electricity to the minimum during
the very serious position which
now exists, occasioned by most
unfortunate breakdowns on two
engines in the Diesel Generating
Plant at the Power Station.

The cause of the failures has
been diagnosed in both cases to
be a flaw in the material, a heavy

the first case and a crankshaft
breaking in the second case, all
within a period of 12 hours of
each other ‘a

These two engines are entirely

this can be done it may be that

two or three weeks time, which
will permit the Company to re-

point in regard to security of
supply in the future. Another

should be delivered by October
this year and may be in operation

Between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, all areas except
Bridgetown should be “on” and between 4.30 p.m, and
7 a.m,, such capacity as is available, after giving due
priority to the needs of water pumping, baking, ice man-
ufacture, printing, ete., will be distributed as equally as
possible throughout the system by similar “on” periods
as have been effected during the past few days,



Load studies and experimental switching opera-
tions are being carried out continuously with a view
to evolving a workable Schedule and the Company
will be greatly assisted in this if all Consumers, Indus-
trial and Domestic, make sure that consumption for
both light and power is cut to the barest minimum at
the times when current is available, whether during
day or night.





Owing to many requests from Consumers as to
whether we could not give some notice of “cuts” to
the areas affected, we have decided, although it is not
standard practice, to switch “off” the area to be cut for
¥% minute, then switch “on” again for 4 minutes before
the final cut. By this means it is hoped that Consumers
will have time to put into operation their auxiliary
lighting. This method of switching will only be in
operation between the hours of 6 and 10 p.m.

There's no business like show business to the 250 youngster; who combine an adult's work with a child's school day at the Pans School for Theatrical Children. Although not all the children. who are from six to IS years old ,iave permanent Jdba, a large perentafe of them work at least >art time on the radio, in the theatre, in vaudeville or In the movies.

However, she has had several students who have continued their studies at the French Conservatory of Music. During our visit a woman and her three sons — six, eight and 11 years old — Came in to see the school's directress. Madam Marie Louise Essertier. The whole family were acrobats in a travelling circas and as a result the children's schooling had been very haphazard. Even the oldest boy could hardly read.

Although 'there were to be Informal talks Death Off The Road THE genera 1 public were gradually beginning to feel that the founding of the Road Safety Association was an indication that the necessity for ensuring safety on the roads had at last been brought home to every user whether motorist or pedestrian, but the number of accidents within recent weeks would seem to point in another direction. The increasing number of vehicles, the greater volume of traffic and the more frequent use of the roads both for business and pleasure would seem to demand the exercise of greater care and caution and a more exact obedience to the traffic laws. But this care can hardly be said to be universal in this island to-day. An added factor of difficulty is the narrowness of the roads as compared with the regulation size of vehicles and the fact that cross roads and side roads have not been laid out with any regularity and provide death traps with the short curves and sharp corners within, few yards of each tSS>S!^ASSg& ^^^ jEsFtT 3TJ* £S other.

With these disadvantages in his way, it is the duty of the motorist in Barbados to exercise extreme care. The strict obedience of traffic laws and the desire to preserve the safety of other users of the roads would be a standard of conduct which -.hould do much to make road travel a pleasure and in the slogan of the safety association: -Keep death off the roads." As has been pointed out already, motoring is not an anti-social act neither is the hei.'.hy exercise of walking illegal; but they can both be dangerous if there is not that caution by both sections of road users. From lime to time the laws governing the use of the roads have been amended. And the primary reason behind these amendments is to keep the law abreast of the changing conditions. The introduction of "islands" at road Junctions, metal studs at major roads and along dangerous curves, the provision of parking places and the system of one-way traffic in some of the city streets are but a few of the measures taken to make travel safe in this island. The law-abiding citizen takes notice of these; and, even where the signa for silent zones and the speed limit are placed in positions where they can hardly be seen, tries to conform to the general rule. It is not sufficient to depend on skill and dexterity in handling a potentially lethal vehicle such as a car or to rely on luck to avoid being knocked down when jaywalking along the road; the primary duty of the road user is to prevent accidents. And the only method is the exercise of care while on the roads, remembering that it is often the innocent and unoffending bystander or passer-by who pays with his oi her life for the mistakes of another. It is time, however, that more attention be paid to the habit of "speeding'' by motorists, who depend on their skill and dexterity in bgasdlitaf tt.e steering wheel to bring them out of accidents. This habit is not limited to the drivers of cars; 'bus driven and those who use lorries for haulage also indulge in this dangerous pastime. One method of remedy is to ensure that there is no excuse for not knowing and not seeing the speed limit signs. These should have large numbers on circular discs and be conspicuously placed at the desired spots There could then be no excuse for ignoring them or the raaHiettOD imposed When this is done there should be a strict enforcement of the law and heavy penalties imposed on those who persist in flouting it. It is as well that anomalies be removed in order to prevent disrespect for the law The safety of every user of the road—pedestrian and motorist alike— depends on continued public vigilance.

With wet clothes clinging to their bodies they did not look in any way out of place in the midst of ruins. In fact, the heavily lined face* of short, elderly, seafaring men, women's haggard sad expressions, stringy hair, together with dark faded garments seemed to be in complete harmony with the surrounding dilapidated buildings. They gave the appearance of wrecks mingling with wreckage. To them it seemed a miracle to be alive knowing that their most dangerous experience had occurred not many hours previously when their smack was lodged on a reef. The nine women fell on their faces, kissed the ground, looked to the heavens and begged that a Roman Catholic priest be sent to hold a mass. Their first spacious night's rest for many weeks was in the basement of ancient buildings. On arrival of the priest in the early morning, he as shocked at their condition of fatigue and hunger. He felt they were too weak to attend a mass that morning. He went into the village and bought bread and milk which he brought to them. A mass was held on the following morning. Government assisted with essential foodstuff but a brighter atmosphere was apparent among them all after the many liberal contributions of food and clothing were showered on them by the members of j § the Holy Name Society.

A thin, middle-aged woman with flowing ashy hair sat under a cordea tree mending dresses while half-clothed toddlers hung around her. A sudden shower of rain caused thirty odd on the deck of the "Ruben" to disappear like lightning into the hold, a stunt they were accustomed to. Eight men sought shelter under a small stone arch of Nelson's boat house. How comfortably they fitted in and remained there half an hour or more babbling their language. One had his arm in a sling, two others remained silent with sneering hard faces. Their weakness was evident when six comparatively young Spaniards with great difficulty manoeuvred a cask of water on to the sloop's deck. Among them there was a professor, the only golden-haired man in the lot. Small and slight of stature, his attire consisted of dingy brown striped pyjamas. He said he had left Spain because he did not approve of lhe Franco regime; he dreaded leaving here and would have been happy if he could have been accepted to teach Spanish in the schools. Others offered themselves as mechanics and one young girl offered her services as a maid.

At first it was difficult for the senoritas to realize that their new friends could not understand their language. Our girls were so touched they took off their own brightly coloured sweaters and handed them to thc senoritas. One girl took off her shoes and gave them to a pregnant woman.
