No Death Penalty
In “Mercy Killing”

MANCHESTER,

NEW HAMPSHIRE, Feb, 22.
The prosecution will refrain
from demanding the death penalty
in the “mercy killing” trial of Dr.

closed here. William Craig, a
county legal officer, said that an
agreement whereby the State
would not press for the supreme
penalty was reached even before
the selection of prospective jurors
began. Under the New Hampshire
Law, unless the prosecution de-
mands the death penalty, the jury
cannot recommend it, said Craig.

U.S. Import Drop
Offset By Loans

LAKE SUCCESS, Feb. 22.

The recent big fall in Ameri-
can imports has been more than
offset by loans and grants from
the United States, according to

ant Secretary of State. Thorp,

Economic and Social Council,
criticised a United Nations report,
which said that this fall had in-
tensified the world Dollar short-
age. He said the report was “in-
adequate”, and failed to give
other reasons for the fall in dol-
lar stocks abroad, Though Ameri-
cah imports decreased by

Polling Day

THE EYES of the world are on Britain
today as the country goes to the polls to
elect a new House of Commons. It is an his-
torie occasion for the victors will mould
the destinies of Britain and influence the
course of events in the Empire and in
foreign countries for several years to come.

The Socialists assumed power in 1945
with one of the greatest majorities that a
British Government has ever had. At that
time Britain and her Empire were ex-
hausted by their ordeal in the World War in
which they had played so vital a part. The
task, therefore, which faced the Socialists
was a gigantic one. They had to effect the
transfer from War to Peace; they had to
rebuild the shattered economy of Britain;
they had to replace and rebuild the devas-
tation wrought by Hitler’s bombers.



In Foreign Affairs they were quickly
forced to accept the grim realities of Soviet
ambition. This was a bitter disappointment
as the Socialists had argued in 1945 that a
Socialist government would maintain bet-
ter friendship with the Soviet than a
Conservative Government. Time and again
Mr. Bevin has suffered disappointment and
frustration in his efforts to secure a real
spirit of friendship and goodwill between
the British and Russian peoples. Today as
he again seeks the mandate of the British —
people, Anglo-Soviet relations are as bad
as they have been at any time during the
past five anxious years.

In Empire affairs the Socialists have pre-
sided over the birth of the new Republic
Dominions of India and Pakistan. They
have given their blessings to Burmese in-
dependence and Ceylonese self-govern-
ment. They have watched the British with-

drawal from Palestine and Egypt and as
their term of office drew towards its close
they have witnessed these West Indian
Islands seething with disappointment and
disaffection as the result of the negotiations
for a long term contract for sugar at a
remunerative price.

In domestic affairs Mr. Attlee and his
followers have faced several economic
crises, Their opponents have claimed that
these were largely due to the National-

isation policy pursued by the government
while they have maintained that the

crises have been the legacy from the Brit-
ish effort in the war.

Today the Socialists offer to the British
people a continuation of their policy—
more nationalisation, a continuation and
expansion of the social services and a for-
eign policy based on the concepts of demo-
cracy and freedom.

No party in Britain today would attack
the basis of the Welfare State, thus the
Conservatives declare that family allow-
and social services are important
elements of their platform. But they would
call a halt to further nationalisation and
would allow a greater degree of free enter-
prise and initiative.

ances

They have always attacked the Socialists
for wasting American aid and they claim
that they would manage the government
with greater economies.

There is no fundamental issue on the
subject of foreign policy although Mr.
Churchill's suggestion for a “Big Three”
meeting has introduced a minor issue.

All reports indicite that the results will
be close and in the circumstances pro-
phecies are useless.

We in the West Indies are mainly con-
cerned with the attitude which the new
Government will take to the West Indian
demands in respect to sugar. It is to be
hoped that the complexion of the new
administration will not affect the policy
which they must adopt to the loyal colonies
of the West Indies on a matter which is
their life or death.

Natural Gas is being “sold at

As College Chancellor

Addressing the illustrious gath-
ering on her installation as Chan-
cellor of the University College of
the West Indies, H.R.H. Princess
Alice of Athlone, spoke of the
christian character of the consti-

a hristian

; and I

most timely.

But if, as I believe, a Univer-
sity's ‘rst ess is to be a
trustee of human learning, trans-
mitting to the next generation a
peer, founded on the past

refashioned and perhaps en-
riched by present day experience,
that is by no means its only re-
sponsibility. It has another task
of almost equal importance—some
people would say of greater im-
portance. It has to EDUCATE
young men and women and make
them into good citizens. In that
task it has to combine humanism
and techniqye, and by humanism,
I mean the study of man in all
his relations — as a thinker and
as a social and moral being.

But it is neither any good giving
people a smattering of culture it
they are going to starve, nor 1s it
much good teaching them how to
earn a living if their minds remain
narrow and inelastic. A Univer-
sity has both duties to attend to.
It has to strike a balance between
what is academic and what is
practical.

It must be careful not to con-
fuse education, which is a fashion-
ing of the mind, with training
which is learning to acquire men-
tal or manual dexterity.

I think there is a tendency now-
adays for technical training to play
too large a part. Admittedly there
is not much room in this age for

elegant individualism. The social
structure of every country has
been severely shaken, and it is

therefore necessary that every in-
tellectual activity should be di-
rected towards some social need.
The leisurely, old-fashioned con-

ception of education has been e-
placed. What Matthew Arnold
called “the fine old fortifying

classical curriculum” has been to
a great extent discredited.

NEVERTHELESS that old type
of education contained much that
was of great and enduring value
For one thing it was realised by
those concerned with it that the
object of education was to train
and temper the mind and not °
crowd the memory. Moreover ‘t
was not just a matter of provid-
ing classrooms and playground
A University is of no value ? 3
consists of buildings, teachers,
students, a cricket team and
nothing else. It has to have a phil-
osophy of life and learning, 4
standard of corporate responsibil-
ity, a sense of mission and a code
of Christian conduct.

I HOPE AND TRUST that here
you will have all those things

I SAID JUST NOW that a oS
versity has to educate young m*
and women and rfake them fits
good citizens. What exa: “tly do
we mean by “good citizens?” Most
of the problems with which you
will be faced will be new prob-
lems and they will require for
their solution the educated minds
of men and women who are ade-
quately equipped to deal with
them. While holding fast to cer-
tain guiding principles, a good
citizen must be able to adapt
himself or herself to changing
circumstances, and for that pur-
pose certain requirements are
always necessary.

INTELLIGENCE OF COURSE,
is one of them. But these world
problems, which are of ever in-
creasing complexity, v’ ill never
be solved by unsvable clever peo-
ple who have brains and nothing
else. Neither will they be solved
by honest ignorance no matter how
much it is reinforced by goodwill
and hard work. There must be
character as well and if you have
a combination of character and
intelligence, then you have the
makings of a good citizen

I HOPE you will forgive me for
most of the things I have said are
platitudes. My words have been
addressed primarily to those w ho
will have the good fortune to pass
through this University as stu-
dents. The opportunity of a Uni-
versity education is given to only
a very small proportion of the
teeming millions who inhabit the
earth. You will go out from this

ledge you will have gained during
your years of study, and you will

the World War was at its height

were far from certain, to set up
a Commission to consider the
development of Higher Education

across the Atlantic in those days
were hazardous enterprises, not

was no dearth of volunteers to in-
vestigate the position in the West
Indies at first hand. I would like
to pay my mai tribute to
those volunteers and, in particu-
lar, to two of therm who are with

us to-day

Sir Tavuiend Priestley is, of
course, inured to danger. He had
good training in his younger days
as a member of both the Shackle-
ton and the Scott expeditions to
The Chairman of
the Committee was Sir James
Irvine, Principal and Vice-Chan-
cellor of the University of St.
Andrew’s, the Chairman also of
the Inter-University Council for
Higher Education in_ the Colonies,
on which body Sir Raymond
Priestley serves. Sir. James must
indeed be a proud and a happy
man to see the institution, which
his Committee planned in those
days of deep uncertainty, so firmly
established and so surely set on the
right path.

But, though the University
College of the West Indies may
trace its ancestry to the Asquith
Commission and the Irvine Com-
mittee, a growing child needs a
mother—or a foster-mother. And
here it may not be inappropriate
for me to say a few words «bout
the role in this great educational
venture of the University of Lon-
don, of which I have the honour
to be Chancellor.

If a university institution is to
take an honourable place in the
world of learning, its academic
standards must be above suspicion
and the building up of those stand-
ards is the heart of the matter. In
this process the University of Lon-
don can play a part which, I am
bold enough to say, no other Uni-
versity in the Commonwealth is so
well fitted to do. .

You have all heard of the Ex-
ternal Degree system of the Uni-
versity of London. The references
to it, to be sure, are sometimes
couched jn terms which are none
too flattering. Nevertheless, I ven-
ture to assert that, whatever its
short-comings in the past, it has
provided a means whereby those
living in outlying parts of the
Commonwealth could test their
academic. attainments and pit
themselves against their more for-
tunate brothers and sisters study-
ing in the many colleges of our
University in London.

THE ASQUITH COMMISSION
was not slow to realise that in
the External Degree system of
the University of London, it had
at its disposal an instrument of
proven worth. The Commission
consulted the University about
the possibility of adapting this
system ta meet the special needs
of thé projected university. col-
leges in the Colonies, of which
the’ University College of the
West Indies was one of the first
to. be. planned. The response of
ihe ‘University of London, I am
happyioto ‘say, was, spontaneous
anc sympathetic. From the ensu-
ing,,consultations there. emerged
the system of special relationship.
which, now links your University
College so
University of London.

PERHAPS THE MOST fre- |
quént: ‘criticisms voiced’ against
our External Degree system have
been two in number. In the first
place, the syllabuses-on which the
examinations were based were the
same the whole world over and
were not modified to suit local
conditions. Second'y, those who
taught external students were
unable to take part in the exam-
inations; of -their students.
these qrmaints'are met in the Spec- |
ial Relationship system. After
full discussion between teachers |
in this University Col’ege and
the appropriate Committees of the
University of London, syllabuses |
are adjusted to meet the eet
ular requirements of this area.

TEACHERS iN
take part with Colleagues in the
University of London in the set-
ting of the papers and
assessment of the performances
of candidates. It is true that the|
last word rests with the London
Examiners, but this, I am sure
you will agree is only fair be-
cause the degrees awarded to the
successful candidates are degrees
of the University of London.

THERE IS A SAYING in
Greek poetry that it is men, not
walls, that make a city. And so
any scheme, however perfect it
may be on paper, is of little avail

operate it are of the right calibre
Of your teachers in this College
I speak with complete confidence.

bers of the University of Lon-

Canada Spends $125,000,000 |
On Education Of Veterans

OTTAWA, (By Mail).

Canada has invested $125,000,000 in state-
financed university training for war veterans
and the sum will reach $145,000,000 before
the big programme concludes.

Of 1,892 Canadian veterans trained along
special lines in United States schools, 1,713
have returned to Canada to = residence
and go to work, a redoubtable answer to
those who fear an excessive exodus of Can-
adian brains to the U.S:

Veterans department officials presented
those and other facts recently to an advisory
committee on university training, a group of
college officials who advise the department
on the programme.

The statements indicated that the pro-
gramme is moving into the final stage. How-
ever, there will still be veterans going to
college with federal cheques to help them
for some time to come. But the big Sump is
over.

Some 50,000 veterans have benefited under
it.

Of the amount already spent, about $80,000-
000 has been paid directly to the veterans in
living allowances while. another $29,000,000
— been paid to the universities in regular

ees.

Cost of providing supplementary grants
to the Canadian universities to enable them
to take care of necessary facilities to handle
the large intake of veterans has been about
$17,000,000. These figures do not include
the cost of providing medical treatment for
the veterans taken ill during their period at
university.

A feature of the reports was that the
heavy demand for entry to medicine and
dentistry, which at one time created a back-
log of several hundred students, now has
pretty well been absorbed. Only 62 candi-
dates qualified for entry to medical college
are still awaiting admission, while 12 quali-
fied students have not yet got into dental
schools

=








The university representatives were con-
fident that these would be absorbed in the
coming university year and that there would
be no difficulty in taking care of the 127
veterans still in pre-medical courses and the
33 still taking studies to enable them to enter
dentistry. Until the present 1,672 veterans
have been admitted to medical schools, 759
to dental colleges.

The university representatives reported
that the scholastic achievement of the vet-
eran students are high. Although the
majority now are reaching their senior
years, only eight per cent failed to pass their
last promotional examinations. This is a
lower failure rate than that of non-veteran
students. Of 1,140 veterans who repeated a
that 80 per cent succeeded on their second
attempt and these were reinstated on veter-
ans allowances.

Provision has been made for the rein-
statment of those veterans who had done a
year or two in university, whose grades
were good, but who were forced to withdraw
for reasons beyond their control.

FOR CANADIAN MILLS

|

In connection with the announcement that a
aew newsprint mill located at Coosa Pines, Ala-
bama, had started operations with an eventual
| output of 300 tons daily, or close to 100,000 tons |
per annum, one of the most interesting points is
the high capital cost involved. For many, many
years, experiments have been made in utilizing
southern pine for production of pulp for news-
print, but many difficulties have been found in
securing a product that would rank with Canadian
|newsprint or that of the Northern States, made
| largely out of spruce and balsam. The question
as to the quality of the Southern newsprint still
ranks as a matter of controversy among newsprint
| mills and a good many publishers.

+ 2
_ $100,000 PER TON OF DAILY OUTPUT



given as

The cost of the new U.S. mill is
| $32,000,000, which works out at about $100,000
| per ton of daily output. This would appear to be
almost double the figures represented by the
average Canadian newsprint mill of between
$50,000 and $60,000. Whether the cost of the
newsprint to the U.S. newspaper publishers who
had supplied the capital will be at all in line with
current prices of newsprint ($100 per ton f.o.b.
New York) will be an important question to be
determined in the next year or two. It will be
recalled that in a presentation at Toronto to a
Committee of the U.S. Congress a couple of ven
ago, the Newsprint Association of Canada held that






“The remaining time on the

Everton had the better of it.

Copies of the resolucion and

Youngman, President of the Fed-

the Export Division of Trade and
Commerce in Ottawa.

Grave Concern

Mr. Bryden said: I wish to bring
up this afternoon a matter which
is causing grave concern to all
thinking members of the com-
munity. I refer to the fact vnat
owing to the greatly indreased re-
strictions on ne expenditure of
Dollars by the West Indies there
is a tremendous falling off in the
amount of cargo which is avail-
able, on the Souvhbound trips, to
the Steamship Lines which are
plying between Canada and the
West Indies. On margy occasions
steamers are arriving with com-
paratively small amounts OP mai go.
It must be obvious to anyone that

no Steamship Line can operate} Put in the hands of the various

profitably if vhey are only receiv-
ing paying loads of freight on the
Northbound voyages, and
coming down more than half
empty on their Southbound trips. }

Ty is mure tan obvious that |
such a state of affairs cannot con- |
tinue indefinitely. Sooner or later |
the Canadians will be forced to}
tell us wnat they can no longer!
afford to operate their steamers,
as the losses they are incurring
are far too great. The “Lady”
Boas will be put on to some other
run where they can pay their way,
nd the West Indies will lose their
services, which will be a major
calamity for all of these Islands.
and which must seriously affect
our economy in many ways.

These sveamers bring larg
numbers of tourists to the West!
Indies, who spend large sums of
Dollars each year, and all this
revenue will be lost, as there are!
large numbers of people who
travel by steamer to the West
Indies who would not Ne prepared |
to come here if they could only

$ Shortage

Everyone fully appreciates that
there jis an ‘extremely serious
Dollar shortage in the British
Empire, and that we all have vo
play our part in sa\ing Dollars
wherever it is possible to do so
within reason. It does, however,
appear to me that in laying vane}
plans for saving Dollars in the |
West Indies no account whatever |
has been taken by the English|
Government Auvnorities of the
fact that for generations there
has been a very close trading re-|
lationship between Canada and}
the Wesi Indies, and that in de-
ciding the amount of dollars that|
the West Indies can spend in
Canada due weight should be paid
to this sivuation and we should not}
be put on exactly the same basis
as Colonies in other parts of the
world who have no close connec-
tions with Canada such as ‘he
West Indies have.

As far as one can see, the
instructions which are issued to
the West Indies with regard to
dollar saving are on exactly the
same basis as if we were in
Cyprus or some other distant
colony with no ties with Canada.

Nov only have there been close,
trading ties between the West
Indies and Canada for a long
period, but the relationships with
Canada go much further. [v must
be recollected ‘hat during the
worst period o. the war, when
the United Kingdom was tovally
unable to look after pe West
Indies, the Canadians filled the
breach. They undertook vo pro-
vide the ships to bring goods to
the West Indies and made the
definite statement— which hey
carried out—that they would. treat
he Wesv' Indies in the same man-
ner as if they were a Province of
the Dominion. In addition, they|
made large gifts of Flour to all of
the British West Indian Colonies,
which were a great’ boon and
helped to tide us over a very
difficult period.

Obviously, in view of this
special relationship between the
West Indies and Canada, it ap-
pears to me that in considering
the amount of Dollars which the
West Indies can spend in Canada
special consideration must be
given to the general set-up, and





that the close relationship which | ;,
exists should not be ignored in|;

the way it has been.
At this point it will be interest-

ing to consider how these Dollar |

arrangements are worked out. It
appears that each West Indian
Colony is instructed during the
second half of each year to pre-
pare a programme of its require-
aments for the following year;
stating sources of supply, etc
This programme is sent to Lon-
don to the Colonial Office, where

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE

,to find that while the United
| Kingdom is importing the prime
| parts of the pig for their own con-
| Sumption, it would appear that
| they do not wish the West Indies
| to buy the surplus subsidiary pro-
| ducts which are available inCan-
jada at favourable prices. This
must be the case, as this year when
porkstuffs were to be purchased,
| the first notice which was put up



from countries outside the Dollar
area. It was only when it was
found impossible to secure any-
thing like our full requirements
outside the Dollar area that a no-
tice has subsequently been put up
inviting tenders for these goods
| from the Dollar area.
_ I could cite a number of other
instances of a similar nature to the
ap} ‘es and pork products, such as
bacon, which are allowed to go
into the United Kingdom but not
into the West Indies. There is
only one other, however, which I
will deal with to-day and that is
the case of sugar. There are no
Dollars available for the West In-
dies to buy many essential items
Canada, but Dollars are
found to enable the United King-
dom to buy substantial quantities
of sugar Dollar countries,
which could be produced within
the Sterling area at much lower
prices thay those they are paying
the Dollar’ countries.



“T think trom wnat I have said
this afternoon it must be perfect-
ly clear to anyone that when the
question of the expenditure of
dollars is under consideration, the
West Indian Colonies are not re-
ceiving fair treatment, and that
there is one standard of Dollar
expenditure for the United King-
dom and another quite different
standard for the Coloni¢s. It is
| this discrimination which has

been going on for a considerable
| time, which has stirred up such

The object of my address

I wish to make it quite clear at

who I believe to be one of .the
best Controllers of Supplies in
the West Indies, I do, however,
consider that it is most important
that the commercial community,
who is in a position to under-
stand these matters, should go
carefully into the situation and
make whatever protest is neces-
sary when things are done which
must have a very adverse effect
on the economy of the Colonies.

I would now like to deal with
the question of whether in fact
all of these restrictions on Dollar
expenditure in Canada are in
fact really justified and whether
the Colonies are being treated
absolutely fairly in this matter
I have recently been informed on
very good authority that during
the year 19¢9 the United King-

vices which are being oper-

ated between Canada and the

West Indies, and that such an

eventuality will be a calamity

for the West Indies.

There can be no question that
the close trade ties which have
existed between Canada and the
West Indies for generations, merit
very special consideration and
treatment when the authorities in
London are considering the ques-
tion of the allocation of dollars
for trade with Canada. It is quite
obvious that no special considera-
tion has in the past been given to
this matter and ‘that the West
Indies have been dealt with in
the same manner as if such a re-
lationship had never existed.

I feel that this matter is of
great importance and urgency,
and that this Charnber should this

business houses in” the ‘city are
|to take concerted’ action against
the rat menace. This was decided
at a meeting of the Chamber
yesterday after the question was
brought up by Mr. D. A. cie-
Smith. The Chief Medical
Officer attended the’ meeting and
gave members. advice on the best
action they should take.

Mr. Lucie-Smith told members
that from @nquiries that he had
made, he had found out that rats
infested warehouses in such large
quantities tHat it was. often .possi-
ble merely. with. the use of a
stick to kill as many as 150. in
a single night.

Rats were a menace not only
from the angle of destroying food,
but also from that. of spreadihg
disease. He thought he would
bring the matter up because there
might be other members suffering
from the menace, and he theught
it was vital that something should
be done.

Mr. Inniss speaking from his
experience at the Cotton Factory
Supported Mr. Lucie-Smith’s re-
marks and suggested that con-
certed action should be taken.
Members of the business
community could perhaps on an
arranged night set baits and
poison in all the warehouses
around the city.

The Chief Medical Officer said
that his department helped with
the rat menace in more than one
way. Continuing he said that his
department felt that nothing less
than concerted action and co-
operation would the matter
any further. It felt that co-
operation between themselves and

And so she has put aside all

am entirely in agreement. It is
amazing, however, to find that
this large sum of money should
have been spent on apples for
the United Kingdom. While Ca-
nadian apples are going into
England in large quantities. we
in the West Indies are refused
permission to purchase many ab-
solutely essential items from Ca-
nada,

For instance, potatoes and
onions could be obtained from
Canada at very much lower
prices than we are forced to
pay in various other parts of
the world. We are, however, |
prohibited from buying these |
goods from Canada.

Oats is another item which
the West Indies have bought
from Canada for generations.
These are now totally pro-
hibited and we are told to
obtain our oats within the
Sterling Area at whatever
prices it may be necessary to

pay.

While enormous quantities of
acon are going from Canada to
he United Kingdom, we in the
West Indies are no longer allowed
to buy any bacon from Canada,
We have to buy it within the
Sterling Area, if we can get it—
and this is not always easy. Qur
total allocation of bacon for a
year is comparatively trivial, a
matter of somewhere in the vicin-
ity of 30/35 tons.

Owing to the low standard of
living in the West Indies bacon—

(applause).

The London partners in the
scheme are no less determined
that the venture will be.a success.
Our teachers are co-operating
with your teachers and many of
them have already paid visits to
these Islands. In particular is this
true of the teachers from our
Medical Schools who have helped
to build up your Faculty of Medi-
cine in which, naturally, the Lon-
tradition is paramount. I
have no doubt that, in the years
to come, that Faculty will be a
child of which the parent may
well be proud.

Our eagerness is in part due
to the long tradition which we
have in our institutions, and par-
ticularly in our Medical Schools
of excellent students from the
West Indies. We are proud to
number many of them amongst
our students to-day in London,

aecount the fact that the present

Mentioning some of the condi

remedied, the C.M.O. said that

if any warehouses were ral

be done to keep them reasonably
cleaner than was being done at
present. Then, there was very
little use putting down rat poison
in a warehouse when there was

plenty of meal and flour scattered |

25 YEARS AGO

(Barbados Advocate,

FOOTBALL

Harrison College vs. Rovers

The first footbati match for the
season was begun at the College
on Saturday last.

The Coliege was greatly handi-
tapped by the absence of C. W.
Hutchinson and the loss of D. E
Webster, who strained a muscle
during the second half of the
game. B. Goddard scored a goal
for the College ten minutus after
play begun. That was the only
score made in the first half.

On the resumption of the play
after half time Wilson shot a
g0ai for Rovers. For the rest of
the game play was equally bal-

Thursday, February 23, 1950

Polling Day

THE EYES of the world are on Britain
today as the country goes to the polls to
elect a new House of Commons. It is an his-
torie occasion for the victors will mould
the destinies of Britain and influence the
course of events in the Empire and in
foreign countries for several years to come.

The Socialists assumed power in 1945
with one of the greatest majorities that a
British Government has ever had. At that
time Britain and her Empire were ex-
hausted by their ordeal in the World War in
which they had played so vital a part. The
task, therefore, which faced the Socialists
was a gigantic one. They had to effect the
transfer from War to Peace; they had to
rebuild the shattered economy of Britain;
they had to replace and rebuild the devas-
tation wrought by Hitler’s bombers.



In Foreign Affairs they were quickly
forced to accept the grim realities of Soviet
ambition. This was a bitter disappointment
as the Socialists had argued in 1945 that a
Socialist government would maintain bet-
ter friendship with the Soviet than a
Conservative Government. Time and again
Mr. Bevin has suffered disappointment and
frustration in his efforts to secure a real
spirit of friendship and goodwill between
the British and Russian peoples. Today as
he again seeks the mandate of the British —
people, Anglo-Soviet relations are as bad
as they have been at any time during the
past five anxious years.

In Empire affairs the Socialists have pre-
sided over the birth of the new Republic
Dominions of India and Pakistan. They
have given their blessings to Burmese in-
dependence and Ceylonese self-govern-
ment. They have watched the British with-

drawal from Palestine and Egypt and as
their term of office drew towards its close
they have witnessed these West Indian
Islands seething with disappointment and
disaffection as the result of the negotiations
for a long term contract for sugar at a
remunerative price.

In domestic affairs Mr. Attlee and his
followers have faced several economic
crises, Their opponents have claimed that
these were largely due to the National-

isation policy pursued by the government
while they have maintained that the

crises have been the legacy from the Brit-
ish effort in the war.

Today the Socialists offer to the British
people a continuation of their policy—
more nationalisation, a continuation and
expansion of the social services and a for-
eign policy based on the concepts of demo-
cracy and freedom.

No party in Britain today would attack
the basis of the Welfare State, thus the
Conservatives declare that family allow-
and social services are important
elements of their platform. But they would
call a halt to further nationalisation and
would allow a greater degree of free enter-
prise and initiative.

ances

They have always attacked the Socialists
for wasting American aid and they claim
that they would manage the government
with greater economies.

There is no fundamental issue on the
subject of foreign policy although Mr.
Churchill's suggestion for a “Big Three”
meeting has introduced a minor issue.

All reports indicite that the results will
be close and in the circumstances pro-
phecies are useless.

We in the West Indies are mainly con-
cerned with the attitude which the new
Government will take to the West Indian
demands in respect to sugar. It is to be
hoped that the complexion of the new
administration will not affect the policy
which they must adopt to the loyal colonies
of the West Indies on a matter which is
their life or death.

As College Chancellor

Addressing the illustrious gath-

cellor of the University College of
the West Indies, H.R.H. Princess
Alice of Athlone, spoke of the

most timely.

But if, as I believe, a Univer-
sity's ‘rst ess is to be a
trustee of human learning, trans-
mitting to the next generation a
peer, founded on the past

refashioned and perhaps en-
riched by present day experience,
that is by no means its only re-
sponsibility. It has another task
of almost equal importance—some
people would say of greater im-
portance. It has to EDUCATE
young men and women and make
them into good citizens. In that
task it has to combine humanism
and techniqye, and by humanism,
I mean the study of man in all
his relations — as a thinker and
as a social and moral being.

But it is neither any good giving
people a smattering of culture it
they are going to starve, nor 1s it
much good teaching them how to
earn a living if their minds remain
narrow and inelastic. A Univer-
sity has both duties to attend to.
It has to strike a balance between
what is academic and what is
practical.

It must be careful not to con-
fuse education, which is a fashion-
ing of the mind, with training
which is learning to acquire men-
tal or manual dexterity.

I think there is a tendency now-
adays for technical training to play
too large a part. Admittedly there
is not much room in this age for

elegant individualism. The social
structure of every country has
been severely shaken, and it is

therefore necessary that every in-
tellectual activity should be di-
rected towards some social need.
The leisurely, old-fashioned con-

ception of education has been e-
placed. What Matthew Arnold
called “the fine old fortifying

classical curriculum” has been to
a great extent discredited.

NEVERTHELESS that old type
of education contained much that
was of great and enduring value
For one thing it was realised by
those concerned with it that the
object of education was to train
and temper the mind and not °
crowd the memory. Moreover ‘t
was not just a matter of provid-
ing classrooms and playground
A University is of no value ? 3
consists of buildings, teachers,
students, a cricket team and
nothing else. It has to have a phil-
osophy of life and learning, 4
standard of corporate responsibil-
ity, a sense of mission and a code
of Christian conduct.

I HOPE AND TRUST that here
you will have all those things

I SAID JUST NOW that a oS
versity has to educate young m*
and women and rfake them fits
good citizens. What exa: “tly do
we mean by “good citizens?” Most
of the problems with which you
will be faced will be new prob-
lems and they will require for
their solution the educated minds
of men and women who are ade-
quately equipped to deal with
them. While holding fast to cer-
tain guiding principles, a good
citizen must be able to adapt
himself or herself to changing
circumstances, and for that pur-
pose certain requirements are
always necessary.

INTELLIGENCE OF COURSE,
is one of them. But these world
problems, which are of ever in-
creasing complexity, v’ ill never
be solved by unsvable clever peo-
ple who have brains and nothing
else. Neither will they be solved
by honest ignorance no matter how
much it is reinforced by goodwill
and hard work. There must be
character as well and if you have
a combination of character and
intelligence, then you have the
makings of a good citizen

I HOPE you will forgive me for
most of the things I have said are
platitudes. My words have been
addressed primarily to those w ho
will have the good fortune to pass
through this University as stu-
dents. The opportunity of a Uni-
versity education is given to only
a very small proportion of the
teeming millions who inhabit the

to pay my mai tribute to
those volunteers and, in particu-
lar, to two of therm who are with

us to-day

Sir Tavuiend Priestley is, of
course, inured to danger. He had
good training in his younger days

ton and the Scott expeditions to
The Chairman of
the Committee was Sir James
Irvine, Principal and Vice-Chan-
cellor of the University of St.
Andrew’s, the Chairman also of
the Inter-University Council for
Higher Education in_ the Colonies,
on which body Sir Raymond
Priestley serves. Sir. James must
indeed be a proud and a happy
man to see the institution, which
his Committee planned in those
days of deep uncertainty, so firmly
established and so surely set on the
right path.

But, though the University
College of the West Indies may
trace its ancestry to the Asquith
Commission and the Irvine Com-
mittee, a growing child needs a
mother—or a foster-mother. And
here it may not be inappropriate
for me to say a few words «bout
the role in this great educational
venture of the University of Lon-
don, of which I have the honour
to be Chancellor.

If a university institution is to
take an honourable place in the
world of learning, its academic
standards must be above suspicion
and the building up of those stand-
ards is the heart of the matter. In
this process the University of Lon-
don can play a part which, I am
bold enough to say, no other Uni-
versity in the Commonwealth is so
well fitted to do. .

You have all heard of the Ex-
ternal Degree system of the Uni-
versity of London. The references
to it, to be sure, are sometimes
couched jn terms which are none
too flattering. Nevertheless, I ven-
ture to assert that, whatever its
short-comings in the past, it has
provided a means whereby those
living in outlying parts of the
Commonwealth could test their
academic. attainments and pit
themselves against their more for-
tunate brothers and sisters study-
ing in the many colleges of our
University in London.

THE ASQUITH COMMISSION
was not slow to realise that in
the External Degree system of
the University of London, it had
at its disposal an instrument of
proven worth. The Commission
consulted the University about
the possibility of adapting this
system ta meet the special needs
of thé projected university. col-
leges in the Colonies, of which
the’ University College of the
West Indies was one of the first
to. be. planned. The response of
ihe ‘University of London, I am
happyioto ‘say, was, spontaneous
anc sympathetic. From the ensu-
ing,,consultations there. emerged
the system of special relationship.
which, now links your University
College so
University of London.

PERHAPS THE MOST fre- |
quént: ‘criticisms voiced’ against
our External Degree system have
been two in number. In the first
place, the syllabuses-on which the
examinations were based were the
same the whole world over and
were not modified to suit local
conditions. Second'y, those who
taught external students were
unable to take part in the exam-
inations; of -their students.
these qrmaints'are met in the Spec- |
ial Relationship system. After
full discussion between teachers |
in this University Col’ege and
the appropriate Committees of the
University of London, syllabuses |
are adjusted to meet the eet
ular requirements of this area.

TEACHERS iN
take part with Colleagues in the
University of London in the set-
ting of the papers and
assessment of the performances
of candidates. It is true that the|
last word rests with the London
Examiners, but this, I am sure
you will agree is only fair be-
cause the degrees awarded to the
successful candidates are degrees
of the University of London.

THERE IS A SAYING in
Greek poetry that it is men, not
walls, that make a city. And so
any scheme, however perfect it
may be on paper, is of little avail
unless the men and women who
operate it are of the right calibre
Of your teachers in this College
I speak with complete confidence.
In their selection you have
enjoyed the assistance of mem-
bers of the University of Lon-
don and the same strict stand-
ards have been observed as in
the making of our own appoint-
ments.

Canada Spends $125,000,000 |
On Education Of Veterans

OTTAWA, (By Mail).

Canada has invested $125,000,000 in state-
financed university training for war veterans
and the sum will reach $145,000,000 before
the big programme concludes.

Of 1,892 Canadian veterans trained along
special lines in United States schools, 1,713
have returned to Canada to = residence
and go to work, a redoubtable answer to
those who fear an excessive exodus of Can-
adian brains to the U.S:

Veterans department officials presented
those and other facts recently to an advisory
committee on university training, a group of
college officials who advise the department
on the programme.

The statements indicated that the pro-
gramme is moving into the final stage. How-
ever, there will still be veterans going to
college with federal cheques to help them
for some time to come. But the big Sump is
over.

Some 50,000 veterans have benefited under
it.

Of the amount already spent, about $80,000-
000 has been paid directly to the veterans in
living allowances while. another $29,000,000
— been paid to the universities in regular

ees.

Cost of providing supplementary grants
to the Canadian universities to enable them
to take care of necessary facilities to handle
the large intake of veterans has been about
$17,000,000. These figures do not include
the cost of providing medical treatment for
the veterans taken ill during their period at
university.

A feature of the reports was that the
heavy demand for entry to medicine and
dentistry, which at one time created a back-
log of several hundred students, now has
pretty well been absorbed. Only 62 candi-
dates qualified for entry to medical college
are still awaiting admission, while 12 quali-
fied students have not yet got into dental
schools

=








The university representatives were con-
fident that these would be absorbed in the
coming university year and that there would
be no difficulty in taking care of the 127
veterans still in pre-medical courses and the
33 still taking studies to enable them to enter
dentistry. Until the present 1,672 veterans
have been admitted to medical schools, 759
to dental colleges.

The university representatives reported
that the scholastic achievement of the vet-
eran students are high. Although the
majority now are reaching their senior
years, only eight per cent failed to pass their
last promotional examinations. This is a
lower failure rate than that of non-veteran
students. Of 1,140 veterans who repeated a
that 80 per cent succeeded on their second
attempt and these were reinstated on veter-
ans allowances.

Provision has been made for the rein-
statment of those veterans who had done a
year or two in university, whose grades
were good, but who were forced to withdraw
for reasons beyond their control.

FOR CANADIAN MILLS

|

In connection with the announcement that a
aew newsprint mill located at Coosa Pines, Ala-
bama, had started operations with an eventual
| output of 300 tons daily, or close to 100,000 tons |
per annum, one of the most interesting points is
the high capital cost involved. For many, many
years, experiments have been made in utilizing
southern pine for production of pulp for news-
print, but many difficulties have been found in
securing a product that would rank with Canadian
|newsprint or that of the Northern States, made
| largely out of spruce and balsam. The question
as to the quality of the Southern newsprint still
ranks as a matter of controversy among newsprint
| mills and a good many publishers.

+ 2
_ $100,000 PER TON OF DAILY OUTPUT



given as

The cost of the new U.S. mill is
| $32,000,000, which works out at about $100,000
| per ton of daily output. This would appear to be
almost double the figures represented by the
average Canadian newsprint mill of between
$50,000 and $60,000. Whether the cost of the
newsprint to the U.S. newspaper publishers who
had supplied the capital will be at all in line with
current prices of newsprint ($100 per ton f.o.b.
New York) will be an important question to be
determined in the next year or two. It will be
recalled that in a presentation at Toronto to a
Committee of the U.S. Congress a couple of ven
ago, the Newsprint Association of Canada held that






“The remaining time on the

Everton had the better of it.

Grave Concern

Mr. Bryden said: I wish to bring
up this afternoon a matter which
is causing grave concern to all
thinking members of the com-
munity. I refer to the fact vnat
owing to the greatly indreased re-
strictions on ne expenditure of
Dollars by the West Indies there
is a tremendous falling off in the
amount of cargo which is avail-
able, on the Souvhbound trips, to
the Steamship Lines which are
plying between Canada and the
West Indies. On margy occasions
steamers are arriving with com-
paratively small amounts OP mai go.
It must be obvious to anyone that

no Steamship Line can operate} Put in the hands of the various

profitably if vhey are only receiv-
ing paying loads of freight on the
Northbound voyages, and
coming down more than half
empty on their Southbound trips. }

Ty is mure tan obvious that |
such a state of affairs cannot con- |
tinue indefinitely. Sooner or later |
the Canadians will be forced to}
tell us wnat they can no longer!
afford to operate their steamers,
as the losses they are incurring
are far too great. The “Lady”
Boas will be put on to some other
run where they can pay their way,
nd the West Indies will lose their
services, which will be a major
calamity for all of these Islands.
and which must seriously affect
our economy in many ways.

These sveamers bring larg
numbers of tourists to the West!
Indies, who spend large sums of
Dollars each year, and all this
revenue will be lost, as there are!
large numbers of people who
travel by steamer to the West
Indies who would not Ne prepared |
to come here if they could only
gev transportation by air.

$ Shortage

Everyone fully appreciates that
there jis an ‘extremely serious
Dollar shortage in the British
Empire, and that we all have vo
play our part in sa\ing Dollars
wherever it is possible to do so
within reason. It does, however,
appear to me that in laying vane}
plans for saving Dollars in the |
West Indies no account whatever |
has been taken by the English|
Government Auvnorities of the
fact that for generations there
has been a very close trading re-|
lationship between Canada and}
the Wesi Indies, and that in de-
ciding the amount of dollars that|
the West Indies can spend in
Canada due weight should be paid
to this sivuation and we should not}
be put on exactly the same basis
as Colonies in other parts of the
world who have no close connec-
tions with Canada such as ‘he
West Indies have.

As far as one can see, the
instructions which are issued to
the West Indies with regard to
dollar saving are on exactly the
same basis as if we were in
Cyprus or some other distant
colony with no ties with Canada.

Nov only have there been close,
trading ties between the West
Indies and Canada for a long
period, but the relationships with
Canada go much further. [v must
be recollected ‘hat during the
worst period o. the war, when
the United Kingdom was tovally
unable to look after pe West
Indies, the Canadians filled the
breach. They undertook vo pro-
vide the ships to bring goods to
the West Indies and made the
definite statement— which hey
carried out—that they would. treat
he Wesv' Indies in the same man-
ner as if they were a Province of
the Dominion. In addition, they|
made large gifts of Flour to all of
the British West Indian Colonies,
which were a great’ boon and
helped to tide us over a very
difficult period.

Obviously, in view of this
special relationship between the
West Indies and Canada, it ap-
pears to me that in considering
the amount of Dollars which the
West Indies can spend in Canada
special consideration must be
given to the general set-up, and





that the close relationship which | ;,
exists should not be ignored in|;

the way it has been.
At this point it will be interest-

ing to consider how these Dollar |

arrangements are worked out. It
appears that each West Indian
Colony is instructed during the
second half of each year to pre-
pare a programme of its require-
aments for the following year;
stating sources of supply, etc
This programme is sent to Lon-
don to the Colonial Office, where
there appears to be some man,



!

or men, whose duty it is to close-|

ly scrutinise these programmes
and see to it that the Colonies do

THE BARBADOS ADVOCATE

,to find that while the United
| Kingdom is importing the prime
| parts of the pig for their own con-
| Sumption, it would appear that
| they do not wish the West Indies
| to buy the surplus subsidiary pro-
| ducts which are available inCan-
jada at favourable prices. This
must be the case, as this year when
porkstuffs were to be purchased,
| the first notice which was put up



from countries outside the Dollar
area. It was only when it was
found impossible to secure any-
thing like our full requirements
outside the Dollar area that a no-
tice has subsequently been put up
inviting tenders for these goods
| from the Dollar area.
_ I could cite a number of other
instances of a similar nature to the
ap} ‘es and pork products, such as
bacon, which are allowed to go
into the United Kingdom but not
into the West Indies. There is
only one other, however, which I
will deal with to-day and that is
the case of sugar. There are no
Dollars available for the West In-
dies to buy many essential items
Canada, but Dollars are
found to enable the United King-
dom to buy substantial quantities
of sugar Dollar countries,
which could be produced within
the Sterling area at much lower
prices thay those they are paying
the Dollar’ countries.



“T think trom wnat I have said
this afternoon it must be perfect-
ly clear to anyone that when the
question of the expenditure of
dollars is under consideration, the
West Indian Colonies are not re-
ceiving fair treatment, and that
there is one standard of Dollar
expenditure for the United King-
dom and another quite different
standard for the Coloni¢s. It is
| this discrimination which has

been going on for a considerable
| time, which has stirred up such
;& great amount of ill-feeling
throughout the Colonies. Certain-
ly during my entire lifetime,
there was never an occasion when

bered that most of the Control-|
lers of Supplies are Government

up all their life in the Civil Ser-
vice, and who have, from time

The object of my address
this afternoon is not, however,
to deal with the question of
discrimination, but with the
fact that if the present state
of affairs continues it is only a
matter of time before we lose
the present Steamship Ser-



immemorial regarded an edict}
from the Colonial Office as some- |
thing which must be carried out
without question. Unless the
goods are not obtainable within
the Sterling Area no protest is
made, unless the public and the
commercial community make
uch an outery that the matter
has to be taken up.

I wish to make it quite clear at
this juncture that I attach no
blame whatever to our local Con-
troler of Supplies, Mr, Bishop,
who I believe to be one of .the
best Controllers of Supplies in
the West Indies, I do, however,
consider that it is most important
that the commercial community,
who is in a position to under-
stand these matters, should go
carefully into the situation and
make whatever protest is neces-
sary when things are done which
must have a very adverse effect
on the economy of the Colonies.

I would now like to deal with
the question of whether in fact
all of these restrictions on Dollar
expenditure in Canada are in
fact really justified and whether
the Colonies are being treated
absolutely fairly in this matter
I have recently been informed on
very good authority that during
the year 19¢9 the United King-

vices which are being oper-

ated between Canada and the

West Indies, and that such an

eventuality will be a calamity

for the West Indies.

There can be no question that
the close trade ties which have
existed between Canada and the
West Indies for generations, merit
very special consideration and
treatment when the authorities in
London are considering the ques-
tion of the allocation of dollars
for trade with Canada. It is quite
obvious that no special considera-
tion has in the past been given to
this matter and ‘that the West
Indies have been dealt with in
the same manner as if such a re-
lationship had never existed.

I feel that this matter is of
great importance and urgency,
and that this Charnber should this

the rat menace. This was decided
at a meeting of the Chamber
yesterday after the question was
brought up by Mr. D. A. cie-
Smith. The Chief Medical
Officer attended the’ meeting and
gave members. advice on the best
action they should take.

Mr. Lucie-Smith told members
that from @nquiries that he had
made, he had found out that rats
infested warehouses in such large
quantities tHat it was. often .possi-
ble merely. with. the use of a
stick to kill as many as 150. in
a single night.

Rats were a menace not only
from the angle of destroying food,
but also from that. of spreadihg
disease. He thought he would
bring the matter up because there
might be other members suffering
from the menace, and he theught
it was vital that something should
be done.

Mr. Inniss speaking from his
experience at the Cotton Factory
Supported Mr. Lucie-Smith’s re-
marks and suggested that con-
certed action should be taken.
Members of the business
community could perhaps on an
arranged night set baits and
poison in all the warehouses
around the city.

The Chief Medical Officer said
that his department helped with
the rat menace in more than one
way. Continuing he said that his
department felt that nothing less
than concerted action and co-
operation would the matter

am entirely in agreement. It is
amazing, however, to find that
this large sum of money should
have been spent on apples for
the United Kingdom. While Ca-
nadian apples are going into
England in large quantities. we
in the West Indies are refused
permission to purchase many ab-
solutely essential items from Ca-
nada,

For instance, potatoes and
onions could be obtained from
Canada at very much lower
prices than we are forced to
pay in various other parts of
the world. We are, however, |
prohibited from buying these |
goods from Canada.

Oats is another item which
the West Indies have bought
from Canada for generations.
These are now totally pro-
hibited and we are told to
obtain our oats within the
Sterling Area at whatever
prices it may be necessary to

pay.

While enormous quantities of
acon are going from Canada to

West Indies are no longer allowed
to buy any bacon from Canada,
We have to buy it within the
Sterling Area, if we can get it—
and this is not always easy. Qur
total allocation of bacon for a
year is comparatively trivial, a
matter of somewhere in the vicin-
ity of 30/35 tons.

The London partners in the

that the venture will be.a success.
Our teachers are co-operating
with your teachers and many of
them have already paid visits to
these Islands. In particular is this
true of the teachers from our
Medical Schools who have helped

have no doubt that, in the years
to come, that Faculty will be a

Our eagerness is in part due
to the long tradition which we

It is an historic occasion for the victors will mould the destinies of Britain and influence the course of events in the Empire and in foreign countries for several yearj to come. The Socialists assumed power in 1945 with one of the greatest majorities that a British Government has ever had. At that time Britain and her Empire wore exhausted by their ordeal in the World War in which they had played so vital a part. The task, therefore, which faced the Socialists was a gigantic one. They had to effect the transfer from War to Peace; they had to rebuild the shattered economy of Britain: they had to replace and rebuild the devastation wrought by Hitler's bombers. In Foreign Affairs they were quickly forced to accept the grim realities of Soviet ambition. This was a bitter disappointment as the Socialists had argued in 1945 that a Socialist government would maintain better friendship with the Soviet than a Conservative Government. Time and again Mr Bevin has suffered disappointment and frustration in his efforts to secure a real spirit of friendship and goodwill between the British and Russian peoples. Today as he again seeks the mandate of the British people. Anglo-Soviet relations are as bad as they have been at any time during the past five anxious years. In Empire affairs the Socialists have presided over the birth of the new Republic Dominions of India and Pakistan. They have given their blessings to Burmese independence and Ceylonese self-governbava watched the British withdrawal from Palestine and Egypt and as their term of office drew towards its close they have witnessed these West Indian Islands seething with disappointment and disaffection as the result of the negotiations for a long term contract for sugar at a remunerative price. In domestic affairs Mr. Attlee and his followers hare faced several economic Their opponents have claimed that these were largely due to the Nationalisation policy pursued by the government they have maintained that the have been the legacy from the British effort in ti.e war. Today the Socialists offer to the British I people a continuation of their policy— ::al:sation. a continuation and 1 the social services and a forj.olicy based on the concepts of democracy and freedom. party in Britain today would attack tail ol the Welfare State, thus the Conservatives declare that family allowances and social services are important Ob of their platform.

Canada has invested $123,000,000 in statefinanced university training for war veterans and the sum will reach $145,000,000 before the big programme concludes. Of 1,892 Canadian veterans trained along special lines in United States schools, 1.713 have returned to Canada to take up residence and go to work, a redoubtab.e answer to those who fear an excessive exodus of Canadian brains lo the U.S. Veterans department officials presented those and other facts recently to an advisory committee on university training, a group of college officials who advise the departmen on the programme. The statements indicated that the pro ijiamme is moving into the final stage. However, there will still be veterans going to college with federal cheques to help them for some time to come. But the big bump is over. Some 50,000 veterans have benefited under it. Of the amount alreadv spent, about $80,000000 has been paid directly to the veterans in living allowances while another $29,000,000 has been paid to the universities in regular fees. Cost of providing supplementary grants to the Canadian universities to enable them to take care of necessarv facilities to handle the large intake of veterans has been about ,/**££ itotil For T0-DA1 Cost C Uviggj |^ Tins TRINIDAD GRAPEFRUIT HEARTS ""* k Tins BOURNVHiE CHOCOLATE B'SCLITI S -a McBWANS RED LABEL BEER-per .otUe "''-I rCa IUJVJ COLONNADE sriMUA We have just received CONGOLEUM in various colours and patterns, excellent i i and breakfast room floors or for concrete 1W, -also CONGOLEUM SQUARE 3x3 yards and 3x24 yards earn narrow fuse education, which is a fashion,. rrmani during the late war.

Only 62 candidates qualified for entry to medical college are still awaiting admission, while 12 qualified students have not yet got into dental schools. The university representatives were confident that these would be absorbed in the coming university year and that there would be no difficulty in taking care of the 127 veterans still in pre-medical courses and the S3 still taking studies to enable them to enter dentistry. Until the present 1.672 veterans have been admitted to medical schools. 759 to dental colleges. The university representatives reported that the scholastic achievement of the veteran students are high. Although the w are reaching their senior years, only eight per cent failed to pass their last promotional examinations. This is a lower failure rate than that of non-veteran students. Of 1,140 veterans who repealed a I failed year at their own expense figures show that 80 per cent succeeded on their second attempt and these were reinstated on veterans allowances. 1'iovision has been made lor the reinstatment of those veterans who had done a year or two in university, whose grades were good, but who were forced to withdraw for reasons beyond their control. $I00,'(HK) PER TON OF DAILY OUTPUT FOR CANADIAN MILLS In connection with the announcement that a ,iew newsprint mill located at Coosa Pines, Alahad started operations with an eventual output ol 300 tons daily, or close to 100,000 tons .in. one ol the most interesting points Is .:h capital cost involved.

Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Canadian Chambers of Commerce and to the Director of the Export Division of Trade and Commerce in O'.: Grave Concern Mr. Bryden said: I wish to bring %  is causing grave concern to all thinking members of the community. I refer to tho fact mat owing to the greatly increased restrictions on .'ne expenaiture of Dollars by the West Indies there is a tremendous (ailing off in the amount of cargo wnich i available, on the Souvnbound trips, to the Steamship Lines which aro plying between Canada and the West Indies. On maiiy occasions steamers are arriving with comparatively small amount's ofssacgo It must be obvious to anyon,that no Steamship Line can operate profitably if tttey are on. I could cite a number of other instances of a similar nature to th* api .es and pork products, such as haion. which are allowed to go into the United Kingdom but not into the West Indies. There is only one other, however, *Mln I will deal with to-day and that is the case of sugar. There are no Dollars available for the West Indies to buy many essential items from Canada, but Dollars are found to enable the United Kingdom to buy substantial quantities of sugar from Dollar countries, which could be produced within the Sterling area at much lower prices than those they are paying the Dollar countries. earliest possible time. The Resolution Resoired that The Barbados Chamber of Commerce in General Meeting wishes to express its very grave concern at the fact that duo to the increased restrictions on the expenditure of Canadian Dollars for the purchase of goods from Canada the volume of cargo moving south bound from Canada to the West Indies has been greatly roflucod If this state of affairs is allowed to continue for any appreciable period, it is that the present excellent Steamship communications existing between Canada and the West Indies will be serlciub disrupted, and *r*ntuaUy suspended, as no Steamship Lins can be economically operated unless it can secure adequate quantities of remunerative freight on both its outward and homeward voyages. In view of the close trade relationship which has always existed between Canada and the West Indies, and also taking into account the fact that the present excellent steamship communications with Canada are endangered, this Chamber is of the opinion that the Import Control Regulations should be so modifled as to permit of a greater amount of trade being transacted between Canada and the West Indies. Be it further Kcaoltvd that a copy of this Resolution be forwarded to His Excellcno. th* Governor-ln-Executivc Committee, with ;i request that he forward same to the Secretary of State for the Colonies.

It does, however, appear to me that in laying lb* plans for saving Dollars in tho West Indies no account whatever has been taken by the English Government Authorities of th*.* fact that for generations there has been a very close trading relationship between Canada and the Wesc Indies, and that in deciding the amount of dollars that :he Wt %  Canada due weight should I e paid to This s.XMtio:! .in.i w* should not be put on exactly the same basis as Colonies In other parts of the world who have no close connections with Canada such as die West Indies have. As far as one can see, tho instructions which are issued to the West Indict, with regard to dollar saving are on exactly the •.nine basis as if we were In Cyprus or some other dit>lanl colon) with no lie* with Canada. NoV only have there been close trading ties between the West Indies and Canada for a long period, but the relationships with Canada go much further. K must be recollected 'hat during the worst period o. the Wl the United Kingdom WU BBAU3 unable to look after Re West Indies, the Canadians filled the breach. They undertook .0 provide the ships to bring goods to the West Indies and made the Ueiiniti statement — which ihey earned out-—that they would treat he WesY Indies in the same manner as if they were a Pi the Dominion. In addition, they made large gifts of Flour to all of n West Indian Colonies. which were a grea.' boon and helped to tide us over a very difficult period. Obviously, in view of this special relationship between the West Indies and Canpcars to me that In considering th* amount of Dollars which thr West Indies can spend In Canad'i special consideration must be given to the general set-up, and that the close relationship whxh exists should not be ignored ii it has been are, for the most pan. uter">e manner in which their affairs <-d out, unless it is founu 1 arr conducted by the Colonial impossible—as sometimes hap-' Office. pan—to procure the goods from tho source set but in the revised programme. It must be remembered that most of the Control-1 lers of Supplies arc Government officials who have been brought, up all their life in the Civil Scrwho have, from timei a] regarded an edict (rom the Colonial Office as some-. thing which must be earned out without question. Unless the ^oods are not obtainable within ( the Sterling Area no protest is mad*, unless the public and the .'1 community make nch an outcry' that the matter e taken up. 1 wish to make it quite clear at this juncture that I attach no blame whatever *.o our local Con:ru ler of Supplies, Mr. Bishop, who I believe to be one of the b*at Controllers of Supplies in :he West Indies. I do. however, know that a short time ago there was a public announcement from the United Kingdom that a very large conthe purchase of bacon in Canada had been put through by the Ministry of Food at very advantageous prices The obiect of my address this afternoon Is not, however, to deal with Ihe question of discrimination, but with the fart (hat If the present state of affairs continues It Is %  ml> a matter of lime before we lose thr pment steamship Services which are beta* oper%  iled between Canada and the West Indies, and that inch an eventuality will be a calamity for the West Indies. There can be no question that the close trade ties which have existed between Canada and the West Indies for generations, merit very special consideration and treatment when the authorities in London are considering the question of the allocation of dollars for trade with Canada. It is quite obvious that no special consideration has in the past been given to this matter and that the West Indies have been dealt with in the same manner as if sucn a relationship had never existed. I feel that this matter Is of great importance and urgency, and that this Chamber should this that from enquiries that he had made, he had found out that rats infested warehouses in such large quantities that It was often possible merely with the use of a stick to lull as many as 150 in a single night. Rats were a menace not only from the angle of destroying food,; menace but also from that of spreading' After further who owned warehouses in the ( n> was essential.

He thought he would bring the matter up because there might be other members suffering from the menace, and he thought it was vital that something should be done. Mr. Innlss speaking from his experience at the Cotton Factory supported Mr. Lucie-Smith'.* remarks and suggested that concerted action should be taken Members of the business community could perhaps on an arranged night set baits and poison In all the warehouses around the city.
