iM. CAMPBELL, Deputy Chairman of the West |

“The Times” leader printed on January 13th

-———¢! His argument is split into three
parts,

oG Firstly he reiterates that the

i agement and security” says Mr.

Campbell.

Secondly he points out that the
B.W.I. would have a quota of |
640,000 tons for the United King-
dom with prices based on “rea-
sonable remuneration.”

The remainder would nave to |
be sold at a fictitious world price

“The reason for the amount sent
down is that the Government
wants to make it clear that if
necessary, and I stress ‘if neces-
sary’, it will be prepared to spend
a large sum of money.

Ending the Acting Colonial Sec-
retary told the Council that they
| could rest assured that if adequate
advice could be obtained for a
quarter, or a tenth of the sum,
the Government was certainly
not going to spend money for the
sake of spending it.

Deeper and Deeper

The President, Hon’ble D. G.
Leacock said that the matter was
one which he had tried to follow
from the beginning, and he had
found that it was deeper and
deeper the further he tried to go
into it. He had found out how
little he knew, and how little any
of them knew.

He felt that it was absolutely
necessary to get the most expert
advice on the matter which might
mean hundreds of thousands of
dollars in the future for the island.

He would deal with three points.
The first was that as a business
man he realised that the most es-
sential thing was the original bar-
gaining with the companies for
terms, and that was the thing
about which they knew least. Ex-
cept they could get someone to
help them with that bargaining

would be just up in the air.
As an example of what did hap-

a difference in bargaining when
they came to a place which had
been proved to have oil and in
bargaining as regards a_ place
where oil had not yet been
to exist. Different conditions were
laid down for such places,

Mr. Leacock read from a docu-
ment which he had in his posses-
sion and which he said was equiv-
alent to a contract. One clause in

average production for the current
month of barrels per day was not
over 50, the royalty should be 12%
per cent. Over 110, but not over
130, 18 per cent. Over 500 but
not over 750, 27 per cent. Over
1,500 but not over 2,000, 31 per
cent,

They Knew tittle

TL.at showed how little
knew, Mr. Leacock said.

The next point was how were

they going to bargain with a com-

pany over the amount of money

it was prepared to spend in de-

they



question of royalty, I |

Ra question of saying ;
an economic maxi- |
Would be prepared to |

veloping the industry. Did any-
one know? He had not the vaguest
idea if it would be fair to ask the
company to spend one or twenty-
five million dollars. He wanted
someone who knew what was cus-
tomary in other places to help
advise Barbados.

In bargaining with oil com-
panies, they were bargaining with
the biggest concerns in the world,
and with concerns who had all the
people to advise them that they
could get. In dealing with them

| you wanted all the advise that you

If they did not have that advice, |

an oil company could put them in
their pocket and walk away with
them, They wanted every pos-
sible protection for Barbados from

$100,000 it would be nothing com-
pared with what it, might cost
them in the end if they did not
have the necessary advice.

That was why he wanted to em-
phasise the necessity of getting
that advice.

ON A MOTION of Mr.

the Civil Service to a Select

whether or

{ be heard,
rather
against it wholly,

_ Those who voted that the ques-
tion should be referred to a Se-
lect Committee were: Mr. Foster
(L), Mr. Brancker (C), Mr. Craw-
ford (C), Mr. Goddard (E), Mr.
Gill (E), Mr. E. K, Walcott (E),
Mr. Wilkinson (E), Mr. Ward
(E), Mr. Mottley (E) and Mr.
Bethell (E).

The Noes were: Dr. Cummings
(L), Mr. Miller (L), Mr. Allder
(L), Mr. Smith (L), Mr. Cox (L),
Mr. Bryan (L), Mr. F. L. Wal-
cott (L), and Mr. Adams (L),
Those appointed to the Select
Committee were: Mr. Mottley,
Mr. Crawford, Mr. FE. K. Walcott,
Mr. Mapp, Mr. Goddard and Mr.
| Allder.

Mr. F. L. Walcott (L) remind-

pen, he would say that there was|ed members that the item under

| discussion was one that had taken
some four hours of debate on the
previous Tuesday. He intended
'to begin by saying that the Civil



proved} Service Association and the Gov-

| ernment had agreed on the num-
|ber of leave passages necessary
for the Civil Service and with
that agreement Government had
sent down an order in which cer-
tain posts were named.

A committee had gone into the
|matter and after careful exam-
|ination it had been decided that
| Government should accede to the
request of the Civil Service Asso-
| ciation and provide leave pas-
sages for its officers,

From the debate they had al-
ready had, it was clear that the
minds of certain members were
not sufficiently steady on the ar-
guments and criticisms they were
using. They began by saying that
it was alright to help teachers be-
cause it was a crisis and the
teachers were leaving.

The Committee had pointed out
that it had to be the decision of
any Government to do something
to offset the situation.

They either had to give the Civil
Service leave passages or the sys-
tem of their Government would
fall, no matter what was their
pre of politics.

Good Ofd Ways ?

It was true that Barbados had
existed in the good old days with-
beat leave passages when other
icolonies had to give such grants.
It had since. however, become im-
| perative that Government had to
| give suitable enticement for peo-
ple to come and fill the vacant
posts and for those who were em-
ployed then in some technical job
to remain.

No member who had given the

matter thought could be serious
about the “training” scheme.
When a man was trained, he was
made of world market value, not
Barbados value, and no one could
say that such a trained man could
| be compelled ‘to stick jto Bar-
bados. He doubted very much
whether any Legislation could
ever be passed in Barbados which
would prevent anyone from using |
his brain outside of the colony for
better pay.

He had heard much _ boasting
about the efficient working of
their main industry—sugar. When
had they ever had such a big yield |
per acre as they had had in their
\last crop? Had they, thought it to
be a miracle? It was no miracle.

|
}









| Their agricultural department was
instrumental for the sound hand-
ling of the industry. How then
j could they expect to retain the |
same quality in their industry as
| they had then, if they continued |
to lose their officers as they ha
lost their Deputy — of Ag-
riculture and Botanist. ;

mst a local officer had attained
world market value, then they



could not apply leave passages
for foreigners alone. c

not the method was acceptable to them, shoula

would be given to Englishmen anu

They were making it in such a
way that local men could
enjoy leave passages.

If they went through the sched-
ule, they would see \at the
majority of those people would be
forced to get work some other
place sooner or later if the situa-
tion continued as it was. Mem-
bers should make a careful analy-
sis of their own criticisms and not
do as a boomerang would.

If they realized that there was
an emergency, they should plan

to suit such an emergency. As »
member of the Government he
fully realised that Governmeni

was responsible. No member why
was afraid of political implica-
tions should be entitled to be a
member of the Government. I
was for members to give or no!
to give their votes. They as a
Government would have done
their duty and would be ticklea
by no burden of regret for the
future.

Mr. E. K. Walcott (E) said tinat
he wanted to suggest that the
question should be discussed in .
Select. Committee. There was as
much to be said for the one side
as for the other. It would be
better to hear the views of mem-
bers of the Civil Service as tc
whether or not the method prco-
posed was more acceptable than
any other method. He hoped it
would go to a Select Committee
rather than that they should vote
against it wholly. If they were
to spend £8,000 instead of £12,000
and spread the right throughout
the Service, he would himself be
inclined to cast his vote for the
matter. He might have misunder:
stood the point on the last occu-
sion.

He moved that the Resolution
be referred to a Select Committee,

Mr. Adams (L) said that speak-
ing on the motion of the Resolu-
tion going to a Select Committee—
leaving out for the time whether
it was in order or not—he would
decidedly say that putting it be-
fore a Select Committee would do
no good. The Bill was a Govern-
ment Bil! and nobody could insert

anything.

If there was a feeling that tuere
were some names there thal
should be struck out, they shoulc
make a motion to that effect. li

Committee, Government’s position
would still be the came. He hoped
he made it quite clear to members |
who might be inclined not tu
accept the schedule,

Government’s attitude was then
as it was on the previous Tuesday
and as had been stated by the
senior member for St. Peter, ton
Resolution had to be accepted or}
rejected.

Mr. Crawford (C) said inat he
did not propose then to make
lengthy remarks, but he would
repeat that they had to give a
careful eye to the resources of the
colony.

He endeavoured to show: hon-
ourable members that the colony
could by no stretch of the imag-|
ination take upon themselves to|
do what Trinidad or British Gui-
aid. Even if they were}
agreed that there was some diffi-
culty to fill certain positions or
retain the Government Officials,
was there any justification in put-
ting offices like the Post Master,
Registrar, Police Magistrate and
many others on the schedule?

He was at a loss to find out
what motivated either the Com-!
mittee or the Government in in-|
cluding all those on the schedule.

Apart from that, it was his de-
cided opinion that the question of
nelping Civil Servants to get

ed to say they could afford to

to amend the many matters for

would say-—by all means Rive |

First Things First |

He personally did not think |
that Government could do all
those. things then, and he took
the policy that first things should |
be done first. The housing ques-
tion, mone could deny, was one
that called for priority. He was
yet to meet any Civil Servant who
was of the opinion that leave
passages were of more importance
than the equipping of them with
homes. j

case, as matters stood, they had to
When they
attempted to make comparisons
with British Guiana and Trinidad,

}to his mind they were faced with

a very difficult problem. It was
from that angle, he was somewhat
in favour with referring the ques-
tion to a Select Committee

He not in favour of ex-
tending those privileges to offices
that could be filled locally. If
the Government did not see its|
way to postpone the Resolution,
then, he could not give it his full
support. It savoured of discrimi-
nation.

He could not, like the honour-
able member who had just sat
down, base ‘his doubts on Govern-
ment’s resources being too unsub-
Stantial, that was for the Govern-
ment to decide.

Another Angle

But another angle from which
the discussion should be viewed
was that even if certain officers
were eligible for leave passage,
their salaries would still be such
as not to enable them to keep
themselves in a tolerable state
wherever their leave passages al-
lowed them to go. Leave pass-
age was only one side of the ex-
penditure to be incurred on such
vacations.

He found it difficult to recon-
cile his sympathy with all the
offices on the schedule. The posi-
tion was that if they were going
to put into the schedule some of
those offices that could be filled
locally, then they had to extend
it right down the level which was

was



obtained in British Guiana and
Trinidad.
Their main consideration then

was a financial one and he was of
the opinion that the Resolution
should go to a Select Committee.

Mr. Mottley (E.) said that he
did not as a rule agree with the
opinions of the Senior Member for
St. Thomas, but on that occasion
he wholeheartedly did so. The
Senior Member for St. Thomas
had fully expressed his own senti-
ments.

One had to agree that they
needed the different specialists
and heads of departments and

——_—_—

they could not employ the special-
ists and isolate them in Barbados.
They had to give consideration to
leave passages.

The Best Thing To Do

He thought that the best thing to
do was to refer the Resolution to a
Select Committee. Members of
the Civil Service seemed rather
lissatisfied since the report had
been released and it had been
suggested that they could very
well put wives off the schedule
and extend it down to some of
the lower grade of the Civil Ser-
vice. But to ask them to vote for
the schedule as it was then, was
asking them too much, It would
be asking them to accept a report
which discriminated and about
which they were not satisfied
better could not be done.

He hoped honourable members
would see the wisdom of putting
the question before a Select Com-
mittee or of postponing it. There
was no point in getting up and
saying they should not do it be-
cause they could not afford it.
They had to give leave passages
if they intended to keep certain
institutions of the colony working
properly.

Mr. Brancker (C) said that he
thought the matter one that
should pre-eminently be gone into
»y a Select Committee. On the
last day of House he had voted for
leave passages for certain special-
sts but the leave passage under
liscussion was somewhat more
intricate. A Select Committee
sould make valuable suggestions
and he strongly supported that the
juestion should be discussed in
that manner first.

No Point In Postponement

Mr. Adams said that honourable
nembers had spoken at length on
the matter already and he had as-
sured them that he would take
the matter back to Government
ind ask them if they would change
their views. That he had done,
after members had expressed their
dissatisfaction on the previous
Tuesday. Were they asking him
then to write down on paper what
they had already said and which
he had taken to Government?
There was no point in postponing
the matter. Government was de-
cide.

There were at least two persons
he knew who were just waiting
on the decision of the House be-
fore they accepted posts in Trini-
dad.

If honourable members felt that
Magistrates should not be on the
schedule, they should move that
Magistrates be deleted. He would
again tell members as he had told
them already, that he could not

| agree to postponement.

life of the House to some
extent depended on the passing
of that Resolution. Many things
that were known to the Govern-
ment could not possibly be known
to the public or even members of
the House. Government had given
the fullest consideration to the
many alternatives of all the things
they had done, but were still de-
cided.

At least in one point he agreed
with the junior member for St.
Philip—the Government was not
a bottomless pit. Government had
done its best by way of a com-
promise to many alternative solu-
tions and he appealed to honour-
able members not to postpone the
Resolution, but, if they wanted to,
they could make a motion for
certain offices to be dropped.

The Resolution was then put to
the vote and on a 10—8 majority
it was decided to refer it to a
Select Committee.

Sir George Seel

THE appointment of Sir George Fred-
erick Seel K.C.M.G. as Comptroller of
Development & Welfare in the West Indies
will be welcomed by all those who have
devoted any study to the problems in this
area in relation to the policy adopted by
the Colonial Office for their solution. It
brings a tried and proved friend to this
part of the Empire in the direction of whose
destinies he has had a guiding hand for
many years.

It is not easy for the head of a depart-
ment which keeps an over all eye on all
aspects of West Indian life to be personally
conversant with the many matters on
which his opinion will be sought. And al-
though Sir George Seel cannot boast of
intimate knowledge of the details of every
problem he is in the happy position of
having a wider knowledge of them than
many others who are eligible for the post.

Sir George does not merely know the
West Indies from Colonial Office files. He
has had the good fortune to pay several
visits to the West Indies where he saw and
in some instances investigated some of the
problems at first hand, His last visit to
Barbados was to take part in the confer-
ence of West Indian Governors late last
year. He had been in the West Indies before
and the knowledge which he had gained
was of immense value to the Governors
who had gathered to discuss the problems
of the area. That is why he was selected
by the Colonial Office and that is the reas-
on why he has been appointed to the re-
sponsible office of Comptroller of Develop-
ment & Welfare.

The new Comptroller comes to the West
Indies as a friend in the time of need,
Devaluation and low prices for our primary
products make an unhappy combination for
the economic future of the West Indies.
The British Government who still control
the destinies of the three million living in
this part of the Colonial Empire, occasion-
ally turn a deaf ear to our plea for greater
consideration. The opinion of “the man on
the spot” is bound to go a long way in
helping us to get.a hearing. In fact no one
can live in the West Indies for any time
without being sympathetic towards our
ambitions and alive to our needs. This Sir

om
George will do.

The Department of Colonial Develop-
ment & Welfare was founded on the recom-
mendation of the Royal Commission of
1939. In the report which was not issued
until the end of the war it was pointed out
that the West Indies deserved greater con-
sideration. The industrial and agricultural
production of the area was not sufficient to
provide a sufficiently high standard of liv-
ing for the populations of the area and the
economie future was bleak.

Since that report was published che de-
pressing conditions which follow any war
have set in; the economy of the Mother
Country was upset and devaluation fol-
lowed. The British Government on whom
these colonies depended for the purchase
of their exportable crops, refused to grant
higher prices. Events have emphasised the
necessity for greater attention to our legiti-
mate claims; and it is here where the
Department of which Sir George Seel is
now the head, can do much in assisting to
relieve the problems.

The people of the entire West Indies will
join in congratulating him on the attain-
ment of a Knighthood. It is a worthwhile
honour especially when it is earned in the
cause of the Colonial Empire. But this
great honour and this great responsibility
carry with them a correspcndingly im-
portant duty. And that is to place the
West Indies and their problems in true
perspective and to bring to bear on their
solution that knowledge and experience
gained during years at the Colonial Office
and in handling West Indian affairs.

W. 1. HAVE SUFFERED ‘ining ev

By Sir Gordon Lethem, K. C. M. G. |
|

Governor of British Guiana 1941-6.

THERE has been most im-
pressive development in colonial
aumuuistrauion and in the range
vt activities controlled by the
Colonial Office in recent decades
—new services, new and broaden-
ing policies, new organizations,
auvisory and executive, new
iunds,

Yet, judged by what should be
the principal criterion of success
—un: meeting of the natural
rights and aspirations of colonial
peoples and the growth of their
wust and confidence in britain—
results fall far below the measure
of the effort. Disappointment and
even frustration as well as delay
in advance have been marked.
this can be said in spite of much
magnificent achievement in nearly
every sphere of action and the
best of intentions in all things.

A principal reason is the de-
gree of centralized direction, aris-
ing from causes noted later,
against which colonial aspiration
has to battle. There has been a
quite excessive degree of direc-
tion and control in detail. Very
many of the older colonies at
least are beyond the stage when
such detailed subjection is either
proper or politic. In particular,
there has been a hesitation, and
an often disastrous slowness, in
decisénn,

The cures should be: one, the

widest possible devolution to
colonial peoples and colonial
governments; and two, effective

parliamentary influence as a cor-
rective to Civil Service and office
bureaucracy.

The first, devolution to colon-
ies, does not necessarily involve

the premature and indiscrimin-
ate infliction of full responsible
self-government on numerous

immature colonies. Short of that,
a very great degree of self-gov-
ernment in local affairs could. be
safely handed over. Mistakes
would be made of course, with
results no worse than follow from
the present methods. But more
would be done, and done more
quickly, and—-an important ad-
vantage—done by the colonials
themselves. Results might even
be more practical and econom-
ical,

The second, effective
mentary influence, as contras
with office influence, require
division of the colonies territori-
ally into groups of a manageable
size over which a person of min-

parlja-
ted





{sterial status could effectively
| preside. Such a head should be
in a position to take the respon-
sibility of decisions and _ not.
largely the mouthpiece of a
machine.

The African group, in view of

its immense importance in the
future, would be a full-time job
for a Minister, even with much
detail devolved on to the colonial
governments.

The West Indian and Caribbean
group is not large measured by
statistics but it is a definite entity
in itself. And it has suffered im-
mensely from ineffective hand-
ling in the West Indian branch
of the Colonial Office. It is pos-
sible that one Minister could take
under his authority the eastern
colonies, after exclusion of Afri-
ca, as well as the West Indies, at
least until a better development
vere feasible. The territorial
division of the colonial territories
into three is the logical develop-



} ment. But in the immediate pres-

ent the independent handling of
African affairs is so clearly
necessary as to require no argu-

ment. West Indian interests will
not receive satistactory handling
until they can have the adequate
attention of a Minister.

The writer speaks from thirty-
six years of colonial service in
Nigeria, the Seychelles, and the
West Indies, thirteen of them as
a Governor and ten of these in
the West Indies. Certain impres-
sions of his service lead him to
make the comments above.

One of these impressions is that
the one-time liberal and tolerant
humanism towards colonial peo-
ples, in the tradition of “British
Justice,’ on which golonial loyal-
ty has been founded, has in fact
less and less dominated practical
administration.

Chief reasons have been—the
fact that the drive for material
and technical efficiency and ad-
vance have led to the imposi-
tion of an immense top-hamper
manned by Englishmen, not by
colonials, concerned with techni-
cal and specialized ‘activities; and
the fact that the overhead di-
rection, both in Whitehall and in
the colonies, has lain far too
much in the hands of persons of
office training and experience
only. The senior executives have
for the most part never lived,
humanly speaking, in real touch
or personal sympathy with colo-
nial peoples; and the Englishmen
in colonial posts have for the
most part been—partly as a re-
sult of social custom and manner
of their life in the colonies—about
as much in touch with colonial
and native life as though they
lived in a London suburb. The
excellent advice and preaching
of many leaders in colonial ad-
ministration have failed to coun-
ter these faults.

A particular and quite new
instance of the tendencies criti-
cized is seen in the new Colonial
Development Corporation. The
spirit of centralized autocracy
which appears to animate this
organization is dangerous. Secre-
tiveness and a poor sense of
public relations have been evi-
dent, and the methods of the
Corporation vis-a-vis colonial
people, as far as they are ap-
parent to the outside observer,
however justifiable they may
seem in the newer and more
primitive colonial areas, can
only provoke suspicion and op-
position in the older, unless they
are modified with active effort
to invite full partnership.

A second impression has beer
that there is no real effective
difference between the political
parties in the United Kingdom in
their handling of colonial admin-
istration. Ideals as expressed
have always been high and liber-
al. Some Conservative Secre-
taries of State have shown great
personal quality and_ potential
ability to stimulate the machine
under them. The Labour influ-
ence about 1930 and at other
times seemed to the writer to
show promise of ability to go
beyond the orthodox Hhtesitatiorss
of the Civil Service, but that
promise has faded. In recent
years we have had the spectacle
of an immense job completely
overwhelming the Ministers and
rendering their influence quite
superficial.

A third impression has been
the regrettable failure in recent
years to make use in Whitehall
of officers with senior service in
the colonies. The practice of em-
ploying Colonial Governors as

The ‘1950 initial world quota
was established by Cuba at
925,000 long Spanish tons. It is
reported that another 200,000
tons already is in administration
process to be added to the 925,-
000 tons this year. This compares
with an initial world quota last
year of only 800,000 tons, which
early in the year was reduced to
600,000 tons. With the larger 1950
world quota, obviously the price
rise is eaused primarily by a
strong world sugar demand, the
Dwyer Company continues. At
present the relative difference
between the world and U.S. spot
raw sugar prices is about 35
cents per 100 ibs.

Can Government Not Provide An Exelusive Road For Buses? i

To The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—-The public of Barbados
are known for their cooperation
for improvements suggested by
Government but the transfer of the
Bus. stand to Probyn Street is
unjust and is bound to work a
great hardship on the middie class
people who are compelled to use
the bus.

When the rainy season is on

, does the Government expect bus
users to get out in the rain and
wend their way from Probyn
Street to the end of Broad Street?
Many cf the clerks who have an
hour for breakfast, and go home

purchasing sare in town, can

is accustomed to seeing Busy-as-

here and there and the shouts of
the various newspaper sellers
and other amusing atiractions
right there in the park. Now it
is all gone. For the sake of such
people like me, bring the buses
back.

THE suggestion that Govern-

Treasury with more revenue was
contained in a question tabled by

here, possibly in April, to discuss
the same matter, and he had put

House Delays
Gas Price Bill

The Bill which is to decide
the maximum price to be paid
per therm for gas was delayed
last Tuesday until another sitting
of the House after the Chairman
of the Committee had reported
the passing of the Gas Works
Bill in Committee. The Speaker
said that in fairness to the mover
of the Bill, Mr. E. K. Walcott,
who had expressed a desire to
proceed no further then and who
had left the House, the Bill would
be postponed,

The Bill had been sent to a
Select Committee last year to de-
cide a new price per therm for
gas after members had expressed
the view that two shillings was
too high. The Committee finally
recommended one shilling and
three pence as a_ suitable sum
and that the words “On the ap-
piication of the Company” which
occurred in lines eight and nine
of sub-section three, section 15,
should be deleted.

After the suggestion of Mr. E.
K. Walcott for the postponement
of the Bill, Mr. Adams moved
that the amendments of the sec-
tions as had been recommended
by the Select Committee should
stand part of the Bill. The mo-
tion was carried. It was at that
stage that Mr. E. K. Walcott
left the House,

No Letter

The Harbour Master replying
to the Chamber said if a report
had been made to his office at the
time of the occurrence, instruc-
tions would have been given im-
mediately to clear the steps for
the disembarkation of passengers,
The letter added that no appli-
cation is made to the Harbour
Master’s office for permission to
place the lighters at the landing
steps for the loading or unloading
of baggage. That was done by the
agents of the passenger steam-
ships in port, F
Those agents should in a spirit
of co-operation refrain from
blocking the disembarkation of
passengers from their own ships
as well as any other ships which
might be in port.

Purpose of the cruise is to train
young cadets to be seamen and
to give them their first introduc-

“The visit to Barbados,” said
Lt. Cdr. Wright, “makes a pleas-

All cadets do two cruises, At
the end of this cruise, the senior
cadets will be sent over to the

The book that has set the world talking

UMMEL

A swashbuckling general who insfyred many a story, some



ficticious some true, to be told about him while the fighting
in Werld War II was still at it’s height,

Hollywood once tried to portray the character of this Ger-
man General on the sereen but they missed badly.

Here, at last, is the truth behind one of the greatest dramas
ever to come out of the second World War.

What he thought of his men and his Italian allies !
What he thought of his foes; the men of the Empire !

How he was eventually murdered by Hitler’s Gestapo !

JAMAICA HOLD

TRINIDAD

TO DRAW

Rickards Hits 83 Runs

(By O. S.

COPPIN)
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Feb.

2
0.

JAMAICA’S BATTING pulled itself out of the rut to-

day to earn a well-deserved draw in the second

match

against Trinidad as the first official interegionial Tour-
nament between the two colonies concluded at Queen’s

Park Oval here this evening.

Jamaica had made 276 for tha®*-——————

loss ef four wickets when Skipper
Johnny Groves made a sporting
declaration but Trinidad although
accepting the challenge by open-
ing with Guillen and Tang Choon
did not achieve victory.

Rickards again topscored fot
Jamaica emerging from the series
as the on!y batsman the Isle of
Springs can seriously offer for
consideration for the English tou:
since it appears generally accept-
ed that George Headley is unlikely
to be favoured by the selectors.

Promptly at 11.30 a.m. Thor-
bourn 6 and Bonitto 5 resumed
Jaraica’s second innings of 16/1
in brilliant sunshine.

Gomez bowled the first ans
sent down a maiden over '
Thorbourn from the pavilion en

Pierre took over from the farn
end and Thorbourn turned hin
neatly off the pad for a brace and
each of the batsmen took a sing!
the over yielding four runs

Drove Beautifully

The next over from Gomez,
Thorbourn drove beautifully o
the backfoot for four. Pierré

bowling at a very quick pace then
sent down a maiden over
Bonitto,

But the next over Thorbour:
who seems very strong on strokes
off the pad on drove one well up
for three runs. Gomez continue:
to bow! inswingers from the
pavilion end and beat Bonitt
with a change outswinger anc
sent down a maiden over.

The next over however, Bo-
nitto got well behind a pitche
up delivery from Gomez anc
crashed it past cover-point fo
four, then swept him to the fin
leg boundary.

With the score at 37 Ramadhin
relieved Pierre at the screen er
and sent down a maiden over
Thorbourn,

Completing a double
Stollmeyer brought on Fergus
at the pavilion end in place «
Gomez Bonitto drove hard
the left of Stollmeyer fieldi:
widish mid-off and a magnificen
one handed field only gave th
batsmen a single. Stollmeyer th
brought in square leg close to thi
wicket and with silly mid-on an
silly fine leg set leg trap fo
Ramadhin’s bowling but Bonitt
was not worried and cover-drov
the first ball for four then wit!
his famous sweep stroke hit Go
mez fielding in the leg trap
short square leg and forced Stoll!
meyer to move him back severa
yards to backward square les
Ramadhin’s next added sing\
to the score sending up the firs
50 after 71 minutes play. Stoll-
meyer then brought Tang Choon
to replace Ferguson giving the
ball to the veteran Chinese sta
for the first time of the series
The second ball tossed full up
outside the off wicket was ade-
quately handled by Thorbourr
who hammered it through th«
covers for an unstoppable four

over from Ramadhin. A late ctt

to the boundary when Ramadhir

fielded, and another coming off
the last over

Stollmeyer now tried Atkinsor

from the pavilion end in place of
Tangchoon—the bowler opening
with a maiden.

In Trestrail’'s next, Ramadhir
again demonstrated absolute in
ability to field when he made
Bonitto a gift of another four
which the batsman acknowledged
by late cutting the next delivery
for another boundary. In Atkin-
son's next over Ramadhin made
some atonement when Thorbourn

on-drove the third delivery in
the air for the youngster to ac
cept a catch at mid-on
78—2—31

Rickards came in and was im-
mediately off the mark steering
the first ball he received to the
left of gully for a brace.

After Trestrail’s next over, the
skipper brought back Ramadhi:
from the opposite end —his first
over conceding a single run

Pierre then came on for Tres-
trail for the concluding overs be
fore lunch. Bonitto took 3 off
the second ball with a well-timed
turn to square leg and Rickards

slammed the fifth for a brace ic
cover.

Bonitto reached 50 in Rama-
dhin’s next over cutting one hard
down to hop over Tangchoon’s
head at gully for two. After one
more over from Pierre the um-
pires removed the bails for lunch
—Bonitto being 51, Rickards 4
extras 4 with the total at 92—2.

Ramadhin resumed from the
pavilion after lunch, Rickards
driving the fourth to the long-off
boundary. Pierre continued ‘o
come from the farm end, Bonitto
sending up 100 when he turned
the third to square leg@or an easy

couple,

The century had taken 115
vainutes

Two runs came from Ramadhin's
next.

In Pierre’s next over Bonitto
snicked dangerously near to
Stollmeyer’s right hand at first

lip to send a thrill through th«
nlookers but he got four for th
stroke nevertheless.

Devonshire Defeats
YMPC At Football

Handicapped by the absence
of two players, Y.M.P.C. suffered
a defeat of 5—1 yesterday after-
noon when they played an H.MLS.
Devonshire XI a friendly football
game at their grounds at Beckles

Road.

Five minutes after play the
Devonshire centre forward scored
with a hard low shot completely
beating goal keeper Archer.
Shortly after tne Devonshire for-
wards moved down fast and net-
ted the other two goals.

Aiter the second goal was scored
by Devonshire, H. Straker of
Y.M.P.C. received a long pass
from his right winger and the
Devonshire goal keeper Thomas
made a vain try to save the only
goa] scored by Y.M.P.C.

When referee Clairdale blew
for half time the score was Devon-
shire three, Y.M.P.C. one. In the

second half Devonshire scored
again twice and the Y.M.P.C.
players made fruitless attempts

to score but the Devonshire backs
were always on the alert.

The teams were:—

Y.P.C.— J. Archer, H. Straker,
D. Edghill, D. Bourne, C. Mec

Kenzie, A. Hazel, B. Lewis, L.
Dash, and R. Gomes.

A New Anigle

On Table |

aie '

Tennis

By FRANK EMERY

MANILA, (By Mail).

A group of Filipinos have de-

cided to revamp the Philippine

version of table tennis and adopt a

whole new set of rules for the
£



ame. :
At least, this is the aim of the
newly organized Philippine Table
Tennis Association which has
assigned itself the tremendous job
of convincing thousands of addicts
that they are not playing the
game accérding to Hoyle. we

Instead of following Filipino
rules, the new organization plans
to introduce the use of Interna-
tional rule. The new rules may
lead to chaos in the Filipino
sports world. ;

At least, this is the belief of
Ernesto Angeles, organizer of the
Philippine Table Tennis Associa-
tion which was formed last Octo-

ber.
Misunderstood

Angeles, who asserts that the
game is “the most misunderstood
sport in the Philippines,” is con-
vinced that this organization may
be able to make sweeping new
changes within one year.

In addition, the new rules may
have such a devastating effect
that new champions may be pro-
claimed almost over night.

But old champions may refuse
to relinquish their titles under the
new rules.

Despite such forecasts of trou-
Ble, Angeles is determined to in-
crease the ranks of his associa-
tion’s 200 initial members anc
link the group with the Unitec
States Table Tennis Association ir
addition to the Internationa!
Table Tennis Association.

His organization already has re-
ceived blessings and encourage-
ment from the American grour
headed by Laszlo Bellak.

New Gospel

Furthermore, Angeles has ap-
pointed special delegates to preach
the new gospel throughout the
Philippine islands.

Actually, he says, post-war
Filipino table tennis has dropped
to a new low. Before the war, it
was one of the Philippine’s top
indoor sports. }

But now most clubs are hostile
to each other and the game itself,
he says, has become “mostly a
betting game.” '

His future plans, however, in-
clude an effort to hold special ex-
hibitions with foreign players in
addition to national tournaments
in order to stimulate interest in
international table tennis rules.

Campbell.

Secondly he points out that the
B.W.I. would have a quota of |
640,000 tons for the United King-

Deeper and Deeper

The President, Hon’ble D. G.
Leacock said that the matter was
one which he had tried to follow
from the beginning, and he had
found that it was deeper and
deeper the further he tried to go
into it. He had found out how
little he knew, and how little any
of them knew.

He felt that it was absolutely
necessary to get the most expert
advice on the matter which might
mean hundreds of thousands of
dollars in the future for the island.

He would deal with three points.
The first was that as a business
man he realised that the most es-
sential thing was the original bar-
gaining with the companies for
terms, and that was the thing
about which they knew least. Ex-
cept they could get someone to
help them with that bargaining

would be just up in the air.
As an example of what did hap-

a difference in bargaining when
they came to a place which had
been proved to have oil and in
bargaining as regards a_ place
where oil had not yet been
to exist. Different conditions were
laid down for such places,

Mr. Leacock read from a docu-
ment which he had in his posses-
sion and which he said was equiv-
alent to a contract. One clause in

average production for the current
month of barrels per day was not
over 50, the royalty should be 12%
per cent. Over 110, but not over
130, 18 per cent. Over 500 but
not over 750, 27 per cent. Over
1,500 but not over 2,000, 31 per
cent,

They Knew tittle

knew, Mr. Leacock said.

The next point was how were

idea if it would be fair to ask the
company to spend one or twenty-

someone who knew what was cus-
tomary in other places to help
advise Barbados.

In bargaining with oil com-
panies, they were bargaining with
the biggest concerns in the world,
and with concerns who had all the
people to advise them that they

_ Those who voted that the ques-
tion should be referred to a Se-
lect Committee were: Mr. Foster
(L), Mr. Brancker (C), Mr. Craw-
ford (C), Mr. Goddard (E), Mr.
Gill (E), Mr. E. K, Walcott (E),
Mr. Wilkinson (E), Mr. Ward
(E), Mr. Mottley (E) and Mr.
Bethell (E).

The Noes were: Dr. Cummings
(L), Mr. Miller (L), Mr. Allder
(L), Mr. Smith (L), Mr. Cox (L),
Mr. Bryan (L), Mr. F. L. Wal-
cott (L), and Mr. Adams (L),
Those appointed to the Select
Committee were: Mr. Mottley,
Mr. Crawford, Mr. FE. K. Walcott,
Mr. Mapp, Mr. Goddard and Mr.
| Allder.

Mr. F. L. Walcott (L) remind-

pen, he would say that there was|ed members that the item under

| discussion was one that had taken
some four hours of debate on the
previous Tuesday. He intended
'to begin by saying that the Civil



proved} Service Association and the Gov-

| ernment had agreed on the num-
|ber of leave passages necessary
for the Civil Service and with
that agreement Government had
sent down an order in which cer-
tain posts were named.

A committee had gone into the
|matter and after careful exam-
|ination it had been decided that
| Government should accede to the
request of the Civil Service Asso-
| ciation and provide leave pas-
sages for its officers,

From the debate they had al-
ready had, it was clear that the
minds of certain members were
not sufficiently steady on the ar-
guments and criticisms they were
using. They began by saying that
it was alright to help teachers be-
cause it was a crisis and the
teachers were leaving.

The Committee had pointed out
that it had to be the decision of
any Government to do something
to offset the situation.

They either had to give the Civil
Service leave passages or the sys-
tem of their Government would
fall, no matter what was their
pre of politics.

Good Ofd Ways ?

It was true that Barbados had
existed in the good old days with-
beat leave passages when other
icolonies had to give such grants.
It had since. however, become im-
| perative that Government had to
| give suitable enticement for peo-
ple to come and fill the vacant
posts and for those who were em-
ployed then in some technical job
to remain.

No member who had given the

matter thought could be serious
about the “training” scheme.
When a man was trained, he was
made of world market value, not
Barbados value, and no one could
say that such a trained man could
| be compelled ‘to stick jto Bar-
bados. He doubted very much
whether any Legislation could
ever be passed in Barbados which
would prevent anyone from using |
his brain outside of the colony for
better pay.

He had heard much _ boasting
about the efficient working of
their main industry—sugar. When
had they ever had such a big yield |
per acre as they had had in their
\last crop? Had they, thought it to
be a miracle? It was no miracle.

_E. K. Waleott (E) the House of
; Assembly on Tuesday decided by a ten-eight majority to

refer the consideration of payment of leave passages in

Committee.

Mr. Walcott said that much could be said on both sides
and the views of members of the Civil Service, as to
not the method was acceptable to them, shoula
He hoped it would go before a Select Committee
than that they on that side should have to vote

the feeling that leave passages
would be given to Englishmen anu
focal men would be exciudea.
They were making it in such a
way that local men could
enjoy leave passages.

If they went through the sched-
ule, they would see \at the
majority of those people would be
forced to get work some other
place sooner or later if the situa-
tion continued as it was. Mem-
bers should make a careful analy-
sis of their own criticisms and not
do as a boomerang would.

If they realized that there was
an emergency, they should plan

ase

to suit such an emergency. As »
member of the Government he
fully realised that Governmeni

was responsible. No member why
was afraid of political implica-
tions should be entitled to be a
member of the Government. I
was for members to give or no!
to give their votes. They as a
Government would have done
their duty and would be ticklea
by no burden of regret for the
future.

Mr. E. K. Walcott (E) said tinat
he wanted to suggest that the
question should be discussed in .
Select. Committee. There was as
much to be said for the one side
as for the other. It would be
better to hear the views of mem-
bers of the Civil Service as tc
whether or not the method prco-
posed was more acceptable than
any other method. He hoped it
would go to a Select Committee
rather than that they should vote
against it wholly. If they were
to spend £8,000 instead of £12,000
and spread the right throughout
the Service, he would himself be
inclined to cast his vote for the
matter. He might have misunder:
stood the point on the last occu-
sion.

He moved that the Resolution
be referred to a Select Committee,
Government Bill
Mr. Adams (L) said that speak-
ing on the motion of the Resolu-
tion going to a Select Committee—
leaving out for the time whether
it was in order or not—he would
decidedly say that putting it be-
fore a Select Committee would do
no good. The Bill was a Govern-
ment Bil! and nobody could insert

anything.

If there was a feeling that tuere
were some names there thal
should be struck out, they shoulc
make a motion to that effect. li
the Resolution went to a Select
Committee, Government’s position
would still be the came. He hoped
he made it quite clear to members |
who might be inclined not tu
accept the schedule,

Government’s attitude was then
as it was on the previous Tuesday
and as had been stated by the
senior member for St. Peter, ton
Resolution had to be accepted or}
rejected.

Mr. Crawford (C) said inat he
did not propose then to make
lengthy remarks, but he would
repeat that they had to give a
careful eye to the resources of the
colony.

He endeavoured to show: hon-
ourable members that the colony
could by no stretch of the imag-|
ination take upon themselves to|
do what Trinidad or British Gui-
aid. Even if they were}
agreed that there was some diffi-
culty to fill certain positions or
retain the Government Officials,
was there any justification in put-
ting offices like the Post Master,
Registrar, Police Magistrate and
many others on the schedule?

He was at a loss to find out
what motivated either the Com-!
mittee or the Government in in-|
cluding all those on the schedule.

Apart from that, it was his de-
cided opinion that the question of
nelping Civil Servants to get



tance than giving to thém leave
passages. If Government intend-
ed to say they could afford to
pass the Resolution and yet afford
to amend the many matters for
betterment in the colony, then he
would say-—by all means Rive |
leave passages.
First Things First |

He personally did not think |
that Government could do all
those. things then, and he took
the policy that first things should |
be done first. The housing ques-
tion, mone could deny, was one
that called for priority. He was
yet to meet any Civil Servant who
was of the opinion that leave
passages were of more importance
than the equipping of them with
homes. j

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE

be too much a financial burden tc
the colony if they extended those
eligible for leave passages. In any
case, as matters stood, they had to
When they
attempted to make comparisons
with British Guiana and Trinidad,

}to his mind they were faced with

a very difficult problem. It was
from that angle, he was somewhat
in favour with referring the ques-
tion to a Select Committee

He not in favour of ex-
tending those privileges to offices
that could be filled locally. If
the Government did not see its|
way to postpone the Resolution,
then, he could not give it his full
support. It savoured of discrimi-
nation.

He could not, like the honour-
able member who had just sat
down, base ‘his doubts on Govern-
ment’s resources being too unsub-
Stantial, that was for the Govern-
ment to decide.

Another Angle

But another angle from which
the discussion should be viewed
was that even if certain officers
were eligible for leave passage,
their salaries would still be such
as not to enable them to keep
themselves in a tolerable state
wherever their leave passages al-
lowed them to go. Leave pass-
age was only one side of the ex-
penditure to be incurred on such
vacations.

He found it difficult to recon-
cile his sympathy with all the
offices on the schedule. The posi-
tion was that if they were going
to put into the schedule some of
those offices that could be filled
locally, then they had to extend
it right down the level which was

was



obtained in British Guiana and
Trinidad.
Their main consideration then

was a financial one and he was of
the opinion that the Resolution
should go to a Select Committee.

Mr. Mottley (E.) said that he
did not as a rule agree with the
opinions of the Senior Member for
St. Thomas, but on that occasion
he wholeheartedly did so. The
Senior Member for St. Thomas
had fully expressed his own senti-
ments.

One had to agree that they
needed the different specialists
and heads of departments and

——_—_—

they could not employ the special-
ists and isolate them in Barbados.
They had to give consideration to
leave passages.

The Best Thing To Do

He thought that the best thing to
do was to refer the Resolution to a
Select Committee. Members of
the Civil Service seemed rather
lissatisfied since the report had
been released and it had been
suggested that they could very
well put wives off the schedule
and extend it down to some of
the lower grade of the Civil Ser-
vice. But to ask them to vote for
the schedule as it was then, was
asking them too much, It would
be asking them to accept a report
which discriminated and about
which they were not satisfied
better could not be done.

He hoped honourable members
would see the wisdom of putting
the question before a Select Com-
mittee or of postponing it. There
was no point in getting up and
saying they should not do it be-
cause they could not afford it.
They had to give leave passages
if they intended to keep certain
institutions of the colony working
properly.

Mr. Brancker (C) said that he
thought the matter one that
should pre-eminently be gone into
»y a Select Committee. On the
last day of House he had voted for
leave passages for certain special-
sts but the leave passage under
liscussion was somewhat more
intricate. A Select Committee
sould make valuable suggestions
and he strongly supported that the
juestion should be discussed in
that manner first.

No Point In Postponement

Mr. Adams said that honourable
nembers had spoken at length on
the matter already and he had as-
sured them that he would take
the matter back to Government
ind ask them if they would change
their views. That he had done,
after members had expressed their
dissatisfaction on the previous
Tuesday. Were they asking him
then to write down on paper what
they had already said and which
he had taken to Government?
There was no point in postponing
the matter. Government was de-
cide.

There were at least two persons
he knew who were just waiting
on the decision of the House be-
fore they accepted posts in Trini-
dad.

If honourable members felt that
Magistrates should not be on the
schedule, they should move that
Magistrates be deleted. He would
again tell members as he had told
them already, that he could not

| agree to postponement.

life of the House to some
extent depended on the passing
of that Resolution. Many things
that were known to the Govern-
ment could not possibly be known
to the public or even members of
the House. Government had given
the fullest consideration to the
many alternatives of all the things
they had done, but were still de-
cided.

At least in one point he agreed
with the junior member for St.
Philip—the Government was not
a bottomless pit. Government had
done its best by way of a com-
promise to many alternative solu-
tions and he appealed to honour-
able members not to postpone the
Resolution, but, if they wanted to,

The insanitary condition of a

Board of Health at their meet-
ing yesterday.

Chis arose out of letter
written by Mi R. M. Jones

complaining gvout the weil which
is Situatea above his premises

This well which is about 40
leet aeep by 8 feet wide, receives

the storm water from Mt. Friend-

A report was submitted by

Government's Chief Sanitary In-

the

spector on the conditicn of the
well and a copy of this was
forwarded to the Director of

Highways and Transport with an
enquiry whethc: that depart-
ment was responsible for the
maintenance since it used to be
maintained by the old Centra
Road Board.

Mr: J. M. Kidney said that the
Sanitary Commissioners of St.
Michael had given regular at-
tention to the well by oiling it,
but thought that the remeiy
would be for it to be thorough
cleaned out.

Proper Authority

Mr. Gale said that the Sanita-
tion Officer had written to the
Highways and Transport Depart-
ment who were the proper au-
thority to look after the matter
and they could do nothing until
they received a reply from them

The President pointed out the

seriousness of the matter, after
which the Board decided to
await the reply from the Direc-

before taking any further action

Arising out of the Minutes, |
Mr. J. M. Kidney moved, secon-

Sir George Seel

THE appointment of Sir George Fred-
erick Seel K.C.M.G. as Comptroller of
Development & Welfare in the West Indies
will be welcomed by all those who have
devoted any study to the problems in this
area in relation to the policy adopted by
the Colonial Office for their solution. It
brings a tried and proved friend to this
part of the Empire in the direction of whose
destinies he has had a guiding hand for
many years.

It is not easy for the head of a depart-
ment which keeps an over all eye on all
aspects of West Indian life to be personally
conversant with the many matters on
which his opinion will be sought. And al-
though Sir George Seel cannot boast of
intimate knowledge of the details of every
problem he is in the happy position of
having a wider knowledge of them than
many others who are eligible for the post.

Sir George does not merely know the
West Indies from Colonial Office files. He
has had the good fortune to pay several
visits to the West Indies where he saw and
in some instances investigated some of the
problems at first hand, His last visit to
Barbados was to take part in the confer-
ence of West Indian Governors late last
year. He had been in the West Indies before
and the knowledge which he had gained
was of immense value to the Governors
who had gathered to discuss the problems
of the area. That is why he was selected
by the Colonial Office and that is the reas-
on why he has been appointed to the re-
sponsible office of Comptroller of Develop-
ment & Welfare.

The new Comptroller comes to the West
Indies as a friend in the time of need,
Devaluation and low prices for our primary
products make an unhappy combination for
the economic future of the West Indies.
The British Government who still control
the destinies of the three million living in
this part of the Colonial Empire, occasion-
ally turn a deaf ear to our plea for greater
consideration. The opinion of “the man on
the spot” is bound to go a long way in
helping us to get.a hearing. In fact no one
can live in the West Indies for any time
without being sympathetic towards our
ambitions and alive to our needs. This Sir

om
George will do.

The Department of Colonial Develop-
ment & Welfare was founded on the recom-
mendation of the Royal Commission of
1939. In the report which was not issued
until the end of the war it was pointed out
that the West Indies deserved greater con-
sideration. The industrial and agricultural
production of the area was not sufficient to
provide a sufficiently high standard of liv-
ing for the populations of the area and the
economie future was bleak.

Since that report was published che de-
pressing conditions which follow any war
have set in; the economy of the Mother
Country was upset and devaluation fol-
lowed. The British Government on whom
these colonies depended for the purchase
of their exportable crops, refused to grant
higher prices. Events have emphasised the
necessity for greater attention to our legiti-
mate claims; and it is here where the
Department of which Sir George Seel is
now the head, can do much in assisting to
relieve the problems.

The people of the entire West Indies will
join in congratulating him on the attain-
ment of a Knighthood. It is a worthwhile
honour especially when it is earned in the
cause of the Colonial Empire. But this
great honour and this great responsibility
carry with them a correspcndingly im-
portant duty. And that is to place the
West Indies and their problems in true
perspective and to bring to bear on their
solution that knowledge and experience
gained during years at the Colonial Office
and in handling West Indian affairs.

W. 1. HAVE SUFFERED ‘ining ev

By Sir Gordon Lethem, K. C. M. G. |
|

Governor of British Guiana 1941-6.

THERE has been most im-
pressive development in colonial
aumuuistrauion and in the range
vt activities controlled by the
Colonial Office in recent decades
—new services, new and broaden-
ing policies, new organizations,
auvisory and executive, new
iunds,

Yet, judged by what should be
the principal criterion of success
—un: meeting of the natural
rights and aspirations of colonial
peoples and the growth of their
wust and confidence in britain—
results fall far below the measure
of the effort. Disappointment and
even frustration as well as delay
in advance have been marked.
this can be said in spite of much
magnificent achievement in nearly
every sphere of action and the
best of intentions in all things.

A principal reason is the de-
gree of centralized direction, aris-
ing from causes noted later,
against which colonial aspiration
has to battle. There has been a
quite excessive degree of direc-
tion and control in detail. Very
many of the older colonies at
least are beyond the stage when
such detailed subjection is either
proper or politic. In particular,
there has been a hesitation, and
an often disastrous slowness, in
decisénn,

The cures should be: one, the

widest possible devolution to
colonial peoples and colonial
governments; and two, effective

parliamentary influence as a cor-
rective to Civil Service and office
bureaucracy.

The first, devolution to colon-
ies, does not necessarily involve

the premature and indiscrimin-
ate infliction of full responsible
self-government on numerous

immature colonies. Short of that,
a very great degree of self-gov-
ernment in local affairs could. be
safely handed over. Mistakes
would be made of course, with
results no worse than follow from
the present methods. But more
would be done, and done more
quickly, and—-an important ad-
vantage—done by the colonials
themselves. Results might even
be more practical and econom-
ical,

The second, effective
mentary influence, as contras
with office influence, require
division of the colonies territori-
ally into groups of a manageable
size over which a person of min-

parlja-
ted





{sterial status could effectively
| preside. Such a head should be
in a position to take the respon-
sibility of decisions and _ not.
largely the mouthpiece of a
machine.

The African group, in view of

its immense importance in the
future, would be a full-time job
for a Minister, even with much
detail devolved on to the colonial
governments.

The West Indian and Caribbean
group is not large measured by
statistics but it is a definite entity
in itself. And it has suffered im-
mensely from ineffective hand-
ling in the West Indian branch
of the Colonial Office. It is pos-
sible that one Minister could take
under his authority the eastern
colonies, after exclusion of Afri-
ca, as well as the West Indies, at
least until a better development
vere feasible. The territorial
division of the colonial territories
into three is the logical develop-



} ment. But in the immediate pres-

ent the independent handling of
African affairs is so clearly
necessary as to require no argu-

ment. West Indian interests will
not receive satistactory handling
until they can have the adequate
attention of a Minister.

The writer speaks from thirty-
six years of colonial service in
Nigeria, the Seychelles, and the
West Indies, thirteen of them as
a Governor and ten of these in
the West Indies. Certain impres-
sions of his service lead him to
make the comments above.

One of these impressions is that
the one-time liberal and tolerant
humanism towards colonial peo-
ples, in the tradition of “British
Justice,’ on which golonial loyal-
ty has been founded, has in fact
less and less dominated practical
administration.

Chief reasons have been—the
fact that the drive for material
and technical efficiency and ad-
vance have led to the imposi-
tion of an immense top-hamper
manned by Englishmen, not by
colonials, concerned with techni-
cal and specialized ‘activities; and
the fact that the overhead di-
rection, both in Whitehall and in
the colonies, has lain far too
much in the hands of persons of
office training and experience
only. The senior executives have
for the most part never lived,
humanly speaking, in real touch
or personal sympathy with colo-
nial peoples; and the Englishmen
in colonial posts have for the
most part been—partly as a re-
sult of social custom and manner
of their life in the colonies—about
as much in touch with colonial
and native life as though they
lived in a London suburb. The
excellent advice and preaching
of many leaders in colonial ad-
ministration have failed to coun-
ter these faults.

A particular and quite new
instance of the tendencies criti-
cized is seen in the new Colonial
Development Corporation. The
spirit of centralized autocracy
which appears to animate this
organization is dangerous. Secre-
tiveness and a poor sense of
public relations have been evi-
dent, and the methods of the
Corporation vis-a-vis colonial
people, as far as they are ap-
parent to the outside observer,
however justifiable they may
seem in the newer and more
primitive colonial areas, can
only provoke suspicion and op-
position in the older, unless they
are modified with active effort
to invite full partnership.

A second impression has beer
that there is no real effective
difference between the political
parties in the United Kingdom in
their handling of colonial admin-
istration. Ideals as expressed
have always been high and liber-
al. Some Conservative Secre-
taries of State have shown great
personal quality and_ potential
ability to stimulate the machine
under them. The Labour influ-
ence about 1930 and at other
times seemed to the writer to
show promise of ability to go
beyond the orthodox Hhtesitatiorss
of the Civil Service, but that
promise has faded. In recent
years we have had the spectacle
of an immense job completely
overwhelming the Ministers and
rendering their influence quite
superficial.

A third impression has been
the regrettable failure in recent
years to make use in Whitehall
of officers with senior service in
the colonies. The practice of em-
ploying Colonial Governors as

The ‘1950 initial world quota
was established by Cuba at
925,000 long Spanish tons. It is
reported that another 200,000
tons already is in administration
process to be added to the 925,-
000 tons this year. This compares
with an initial world quota last
year of only 800,000 tons, which
early in the year was reduced to
600,000 tons. With the larger 1950
world quota, obviously the price
rise is eaused primarily by a
strong world sugar demand, the
Dwyer Company continues. At
present the relative difference
between the world and U.S. spot
raw sugar prices is about 35
cents per 100 ibs.

SIR,—-The public of Barbados
are known for their cooperation
for improvements suggested by
Government but the transfer of the
Bus. stand to Probyn Street is
unjust and is bound to work a
great hardship on the middie class
people who are compelled to use
the bus.

When the rainy season is on

, does the Government expect bus
users to get out in the rain and
wend their way from Probyn
Street to the end of Broad Street?
Many cf the clerks who have an
hour for breakfast, and go home
for same, finding it cheaper than
purchasing sare in town, can
hardly continue to do mos
of the time will be spent on the
road,

the enormous amount of traffic
which is forced to use this bridge.

Can the Government not pro-
vide a single road say Marhill
Street for the exclusive use of the
buses and make provision except
when the Legislature is meeting,
for the buses to enter Marhill
Street by way of Rickett Street
and Palmetto Street and leave by
way of Trafalgar Street?

Will the City, St. Michael, and
Christ Church Members of the
House take some action in the
House to relieve this oppression?

glamour. Some people, (perhaps
the authorities) do not know what
this little paradise is to every-
body especially the stranger who
is accustomed to seeing Busy-as-
a-bee traffic, and a little fun
here and there and the shouts of
the various newspaper sellers
and other amusing atiractions
right there in the park. Now it
is all gone. For the sake of such
people like me, bring the buses
back.
“Only seeing it makes me happy,
Much less walking round the
park,
Now I feel so dead and dreary
Lost—as it were in true despair,
Contented I am, because I am
dreaming,
Let me wake and find Trafalgar
there.”

SIR The Exhibition of “Latest
Fashions” by ladies termed Man-
nequins may have proved siccess-
ful, but I think styles exhibited

more appropriate. After marriage,
one loses that real glamour of
youth that is an asset to fashion-
able dress. Married women seem
now to get to the fore in
everything.

To The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—Further to my letter of
yesterday I notice in the “Times”
that the L.C.C. inviteti Social
Workers and others with knowl-
edge of the problem to attend a
meeting of the Consultative Com-
mittee on the Homeless Poor on
February 21, when the whole
matter will be discussed.

A representative of the League
cf Coloured Peoples said it was
intended that any money rece!
over and above the £5,000 ert
for in an appeal recently launched
would be used to form the nucleu
for another fund for building
hostels in different parts of the
country. An appeal for money for
work in this country is
launched in America also.

Mr. Learie Constantine is a past

become too much for. a voluntary

It is visualized that the London

House Delays
Gas Price Bill

The Bill which is to decide
the maximum price to be paid
per therm for gas was delayed
last Tuesday until another sitting
of the House after the Chairman
of the Committee had reported
the passing of the Gas Works
Bill in Committee. The Speaker
said that in fairness to the mover
of the Bill, Mr. E. K. Walcott,
who had expressed a desire to
proceed no further then and who
had left the House, the Bill would
be postponed,

The Bill had been sent to a
Select Committee last year to de-
cide a new price per therm for
gas after members had expressed
the view that two shillings was
too high. The Committee finally
recommended one shilling and
three pence as a_ suitable sum
and that the words “On the ap-
piication of the Company” which
occurred in lines eight and nine
of sub-section three, section 15,
should be deleted.

After the suggestion of Mr. E.
K. Walcott for the postponement
of the Bill, Mr. Adams moved
that the amendments of the sec-
tions as had been recommended
by the Select Committee should
stand part of the Bill. The mo-
tion was carried. It was at that
stage that Mr. E. K. Walcott
left the House,

The Harbour Master replying
to the Chamber said if a report

time of the occurrence, instruc-

The letter added that no appli-
cation is made to the Harbour
Master’s office for permission to
place the lighters at the landing
steps for the loading or unloading
of baggage. That was done by the
agents of the passenger steam-
ships in port, F
Those agents should in a spirit
of co-operation refrain from
blocking the disembarkation of
passengers from their own ships
as well as any other ships which
might be in port.

The book that has set the world talking

UMMEL

A swashbuckling general who insfyred many a story, some



ficticious some true, to be told about him while the fighting
in Werld War II was still at it’s height,

Hollywood once tried to portray the character of this Ger-
man General on the sereen but they missed badly.

Here, at last, is the truth behind one of the greatest dramas
ever to come out of the second World War.

What he thought of his men and his Italian allies !
What he thought of his foes; the men of the Empire !

How he was eventually murdered by Hitler’s Gestapo !

JAMAICA HOLD

TRINIDAD

TO DRAW

Rickards Hits 83 Runs

(By O. S.

COPPIN)
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Feb.

2
0.

JAMAICA’S BATTING pulled itself out of the rut to-

day to earn a well-deserved draw in the second

match

against Trinidad as the first official interegionial Tour-
nament between the two colonies concluded at Queen’s

Park Oval here this evening.

Jamaica had made 276 for tha®*-——————

loss ef four wickets when Skipper
Johnny Groves made a sporting
declaration but Trinidad although
accepting the challenge by open-
ing with Guillen and Tang Choon
did not achieve victory.

Rickards again topscored fot
Jamaica emerging from the series
as the on!y batsman the Isle of
Springs can seriously offer for
consideration for the English tou:
since it appears generally accept-
ed that George Headley is unlikely
to be favoured by the selectors.

Promptly at 11.30 a.m. Thor-
bourn 6 and Bonitto 5 resumed
Jaraica’s second innings of 16/1
in brilliant sunshine.

Gomez bowled the first ans
sent down a maiden over '
Thorbourn from the pavilion en

Pierre took over from the farn
end and Thorbourn turned hin
neatly off the pad for a brace and
each of the batsmen took a sing!
the over yielding four runs

Drove Beautifully

The next over from Gomez,
Thorbourn drove beautifully o
the backfoot for four. Pierré

bowling at a very quick pace then
sent down a maiden over
Bonitto,

But the next over Thorbour:
who seems very strong on strokes
off the pad on drove one well up
for three runs. Gomez continue:
to bow! inswingers from the
pavilion end and beat Bonitt
with a change outswinger anc
sent down a maiden over.

The next over however, Bo-
nitto got well behind a pitche
up delivery from Gomez anc
crashed it past cover-point fo
four, then swept him to the fin
leg boundary.

With the score at 37 Ramadhin
relieved Pierre at the screen er
and sent down a maiden over
Thorbourn,

Completing a double
Stollmeyer brought on Fergus
at the pavilion end in place «
Gomez Bonitto drove hard
the left of Stollmeyer fieldi:
widish mid-off and a magnificen
one handed field only gave th
batsmen a single. Stollmeyer th
brought in square leg close to thi
wicket and with silly mid-on an

Ramadhin’s bowling but Bonitt
was not worried and cover-drov
the first ball for four then wit!

meyer to move him back severa

Ramadhin’s next added sing\
to the score sending up the firs
50 after 71 minutes play. Stoll-
meyer then brought Tang Choon
to replace Ferguson giving the
ball to the veteran Chinese sta
for the first time of the series
The second ball tossed full up
outside the off wicket was ade-
quately handled by Thorbourr
who hammered it through th«
covers for an unstoppable four

Stollmeyer now tried Atkinsor

from the pavilion end in place of
Tangchoon—the bowler opening
with a maiden.

In Trestrail’'s next, Ramadhir
again demonstrated absolute in
ability to field when he made
Bonitto a gift of another four
which the batsman acknowledged
by late cutting the next delivery
for another boundary. In Atkin-
son's next over Ramadhin made
some atonement when Thorbourn

on-drove the third delivery in
the air for the youngster to ac
cept a catch at mid-on
78—2—31

Rickards came in and was im-
mediately off the mark steering
the first ball he received to the
left of gully for a brace.

After Trestrail’s next over, the
skipper brought back Ramadhi:
from the opposite end —his first
over conceding a single run

Pierre then came on for Tres-
trail for the concluding overs be
fore lunch. Bonitto took 3 off
the second ball with a well-timed
turn to square leg and Rickards

slammed the fifth for a brace ic
cover.

Bonitto reached 50 in Rama-
dhin’s next over cutting one hard
down to hop over Tangchoon’s
head at gully for two. After one
more over from Pierre the um-
pires removed the bails for lunch
—Bonitto being 51, Rickards 4
extras 4 with the total at 92—2.

Ramadhin resumed from the
pavilion after lunch, Rickards
driving the fourth to the long-off
boundary. Pierre continued ‘o
come from the farm end, Bonitto
sending up 100 when he turned
the third to square leg@or an easy

couple,

The century had taken 115
vainutes

Two runs came from Ramadhin's
next.

In Pierre’s next over Bonitto
snicked dangerously near to
Stollmeyer’s right hand at first

lip to send a thrill through th«
nlookers but he got four for th
stroke nevertheless.

Devonshire Defeats
YMPC At Football

Handicapped by the absence
of two players, Y.M.P.C. suffered
a defeat of 5—1 yesterday after-
noon when they played an H.MLS.
Devonshire XI a friendly football
game at their grounds at Beckles

Road.

Five minutes after play the
Devonshire centre forward scored
with a hard low shot completely
beating goal keeper Archer.
Shortly after tne Devonshire for-
wards moved down fast and net-
ted the other two goals.

Aiter the second goal was scored
by Devonshire, H. Straker of
Y.M.P.C. received a long pass
from his right winger and the
Devonshire goal keeper Thomas
made a vain try to save the only
goa] scored by Y.M.P.C.

When referee Clairdale blew
for half time the score was Devon-
shire three, Y.M.P.C. one. In the

second half Devonshire scored
again twice and the Y.M.P.C.
players made fruitless attempts

to score but the Devonshire backs
were always on the alert.

The teams were:—

Y.P.C.— J. Archer, H. Straker,
D. Edghill, D. Bourne, C. Mec

Kenzie, A. Hazel, B. Lewis, L.
Dash, and R. Gomes.

A New Anigle

On Table |

Tennis

By FRANK EMERY

MANILA, (By Mail).

A group of Filipinos have de-

cided to revamp the Philippine

version of table tennis and adopt a

whole new set of rules for the
£



ame. :
At least, this is the aim of the
newly organized Philippine Table
Tennis Association which has
assigned itself the tremendous job
of convincing thousands of addicts
that they are not playing the
game accérding to Hoyle. we

Instead of following Filipino
rules, the new organization plans
to introduce the use of Interna-
tional rule. The new rules may
lead to chaos in the Filipino
sports world. ;

At least, this is the belief of
Ernesto Angeles, organizer of the
Philippine Table Tennis Associa-
tion which was formed last Octo-

ber.
Misunderstood

Angeles, who asserts that the
game is “the most misunderstood
sport in the Philippines,” is con-
vinced that this organization may
be able to make sweeping new
changes within one year.

In addition, the new rules may
have such a devastating effect
that new champions may be pro-
claimed almost over night.

But old champions may refuse
to relinquish their titles under the
new rules.

Despite such forecasts of trou-
Ble, Angeles is determined to in-
crease the ranks of his associa-
tion’s 200 initial members anc
link the group with the Unitec
States Table Tennis Association ir
addition to the Internationa!
Table Tennis Association.

His organization already has re-
ceived blessings and encourage-
ment from the American grour
headed by Laszlo Bellak.

New Gospel

Furthermore, Angeles has ap-
pointed special delegates to preach
the new gospel throughout the
Philippine islands.

Actually, he says, post-war
Filipino table tennis has dropped
to a new low. Before the war, it
was one of the Philippine’s top
indoor sports. }

But now most clubs are hostile
to each other and the game itself,
he says, has become “mostly a
betting game.” '

His future plans, however, in-
clude an effort to hold special ex-
hibitions with foreign players in
addition to national tournaments
in order to stimulate interest in
international table tennis rules.
