A Real F ear

IN MOVING the passing of a resolution
at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce
this week, Mr. A. S. Bryden made out a
strong case against the present policy of
the Colonial Office in imposing too severe
a code of restrictions on the expenditure of
Canadian dollars for the purchase of goods
by the West Indies. The point made by Mr.
Bryden was not merely that these increased
restrictions worked hardships but would
have the inevitable reSult of losing us the

services of the Canadian National Steam-

The facts and figures adduced were not
new but in the present circumstances they
bear a terrible emphasis. Business men
in Barbados have from time to time ex-
pressed fears that the policy of restriction
would do irreparable damage to our import
and export trade. It was pointed out that
the obligation to purchase goods within
the sterling area would increase the cost
of living. That this fear was justified is
to be gathered from the fact that a Con-
ference at government level will be held
in this island during March, to investigate
to what extent devaluation has affected
the economy of these colonies-

But if there is good reason for the belief
that the policy adopted before and after
devaluation will adversely affect West
Indies trade with Canada, there is now
the grave danger that because of the re-
striction of that trade the Canadian
National Steamships will be taken off the
West Indian route.

Two years ago public discussion brought
to light the fact that for steamship services
we had been badly served in this island.
tt was difficult to travel between the
islands or from the area to Europe or
the United States. The situation reached
such a stage that students to the Universi-
ties were compelled to use plane services
at extremely high rates or travel by cargo
steamers, if they were lucky, when the
time came for them to begin their terms.

The Canadian National Steamships have
filled a gap which no other line can be
expected to fill if these are withdrawn.
The service was inaugurated in accordance
with the terms of the Canada-West Indies
Trade Agreement, and so important was
it regarded, that the West Indian Colonies
subsidised the Company.

Already there is grave discontent in
Canada over the redirection of West Indian
trade asa result of the new policy which

, compels us to buy goods within the sterling
area. That trade which had been fostered
by Canada during the last thirty years
was worth 85 million dollars in 1949 and
was estimated to be worth one hundred
million dollars in 1950. Its loss to Canadian
manufacturers would justify the removal
of the C.N.S. from the West Indian route;
but it is hoped that some effort will be
made to retain it, The case“might have
been less difficult if British Steamship
companies were willing to supply a service
but as was pointed out by the British Gov-
ernment last year, nothing could be done
because the Government had no control
over the steamship companies.

The resolution will be forwarded to the
Secretary of State for the Colonies and
among other bodies to the Associated West
Indian Chambers of Commerce in order
that appropriate action may be taken. But
it is the duty of the Legislatures of the
various islands to make it plain to the
British Government that a trade policy
which looks only after the interests of the
British worker can be detrimental to
Colonial peoples.

The Barbados House of Assembly might
wel! avoid its error as in the case of the
sugar question and give immediate support
to this resolution.

BLACK OUT |

Busy men have little time for
frivolous amusements. I am a very
busy man indeed and have abso-
lutely no time for frolic and fun.
In truth and in fact, my only
occasional amusement is to tweak
the cat's tail when the feline is
foolish enough to approach too
close to my eager talons. This
cruel habit is inherited, no doubt,
from my Uncle Horatio, who, as
a small boy, tormented flies and
stuck pins through beetles. In
later years he tormented people
by borrowing money from them
and neglecting to return same.
It caused little regret to society
when he met his death by

ee pond at Sir
Hubert "s place near

Reigate. However, Uncle Hora-
tio has nothing to do with the
matter in question.. As I trust I
have made plain, I am a very
busy man. A week or so ago I
received a telephone call from a
certain young lady in whose
company I have spent many de-
lightful hours (before I became
a very busy man). She informed
me, in no terms I for-
got business for a moment and
took her out to dinner—there

hours for me in her company-—
there being many far more inter-
esting men available who were
never busy. Faced with such «
threat I had no alternative but to
comply. There then arose the
usual problem of where to go and
dine on credit, but this was final-
ly overcome with my customary
ingenuity and tact. Seven o’clock
that evening saw us comfortably
installed in pleasant, bright sur-
roundings, anticipating flying fish
and other gourmet’s delicacies.
It was when the first spoonful of
soup was on the way to the yawn-
ing aperture I call my mouth that
every light in the place went out
and things were no longer pleas-
ant and bright. The situation
was not aided by the fact that,
in my surprise (I suffer from
nervous neurosis) I dropped
the spoon into the soup,

Gloomy persons so accustomed
to launching jeremiads against the
poverty of modern fiction that they
would scarcely notice if a Dickens,
Thackeray or Charlotte Bronte
suddenly sprang up fully-armed
beneath their noses, might rouse
themselves from lethargy to con-
sider a recent crop of English
novels.

There seems to me now a mark-
ed breakaway from the frail and
nervous type of work so charac-
teristic of the past few years—
from the “critic’s book,” as dis-
tinct from the book the common
reader both admires and enjoys.
Novelists of the highest talent are
beginning once more to tell stories
about people, and to regard this as
the first requirement of their art.
There is less reporting; there is
less symbolism; there 15
less groping away from. the pres-
ent to the future or to the past.

To my mind, by far the most
striking novel of the past few
months is C. P. Snow’s Time Of
Hope, the third volume in his pro-
jected series of novels designed to
cover a quarter of a century of
the English scene, and * almost
every aspect of social life. Appre-
ciation of Mr. Snow's work. slow
in crystallising, now seems fairly
general. He is a writer of great
humanity, breadth and compas-
| sion, and if he makes one really
+ heavy demand on the reader it 1s
this: that the Jatter shall, as he
reads. try to match either by his
own remembered experience or
imaginative sympathy, the experi-
ence of the young man Lewis
Eliot, brilliant, but bitterly poor,
who gropes his way doggedly up-
wards to worldly success, whic
is at Jast turned to ashes by 2
destructive love. Each novel in
this series, by the way, is‘designea
to be read as a work in its own
right. The novels as a whole are
\ connected by a single narrator,
who is Eliot himself.

The other outstanding event of
the season has been the publication
of Joyce Cary's A Fearful Joy, 2
raging torrent of a book, wild-
spirited, idiosyncratic, about a
pug-nosed girl haunted by ar
obsessive love, who finds herself
a “Beardsley beauty,” the queen
of the “Yellow Book” salons, and
at last, ageing but still rampant,
discovers in the life of her grand-
daughter the obsessed pattern of
her own. This is not so good 8
book as The Horse’s Mouth—the
pace is too great for anyone’s
cemfort, author’s or reader’s; but

Messrs. T. R. Ev
<{Mr. Cook,

it would make the autumn nota-
ble even if no other work of dis-
tinction had appeared to compete
with it.

The autumn, however, has pro-
duced already several works of a
high order. I have mentioned
Anthony West’s On A Dark Night,
which though unnecessarily hard
reading, offers high rewards to
the sensitive imagination. This
story of a hanged German general
and the lawyer responsible for
sending him to his death, both of
them condemned to make what
they can of the “After Life,” is
full of power and of ideas; but the
ideas are too many and too mud-
died, and Mr. West has not man-
aged to sort them out even to a
preliminary design.

All the same, his writing has
quality, and his book is rich with
the kind of human sympathy and
curiosity so often lacking entirely
in imaginative works of this kind.

Rhys Davies’ volume of short
steries, Boy With A Trumpet,
beautifully reveals this “writer's
gift for comic poetry. On the dark
side he is.atways impressive, but
never quite credible—as the title
story discovers; but when he is
writing of Rowland Canute who
disgraced himself when Up for
the Cup, or of Catherine Fuschias
who could not quite explain
away the presence of a corpse in
her house, his gifts glitter in their
morning gold, and he soars beyond
the reach of criticism, of analysis,
of anything save the purest
pleasure.

Two books have strongly captur-
ed my own imagination: The
Sacked City, by George R. Preedy,
a queer, nightmarish, poetic tale
of a young man recovering from a
nervous illness on a mysterious
(sland; and The Wonder Of All
The Gay World, by James Barke,
third in his series of four novels

ans & Whitfields,
Carter, Miss February 21.

TT do not, in

peared in your issue of Tuesday,

on the life of Robert Burns. This
is a very endearing man-to-man
story, rough, warm and humane,
though not recommended to. the
morally-indignant.

I must also say a word about
another Scottish book—The Cry
Of The Wd, a first novel by
Stewart Hunter. This tale of love
and sorrow, scandal and loving-
kindness in a Lowlands village,
is full of promise for the future.
It has strength and originality,
though the author's characterisa-
tion is at present rather weak.
Such Pleasure, by Martin Boyd, is
a shimmering sad tale of a young
woman heaved up and down in
the trough of society, who grows
into a harridan dreaming only of
returning to her “inheritance”
Mt. Boyd has a bright and lovely
style, and his visual sense is ex-
quisite.. One is. less; conscious. of
reading this story than of seeing
it. i?

Robert Kee’s second novel, The
Impossible Shore, concerning a
prisoner-of-war liberated by the
Russians and discovering precious
little difference between the old
confinement and the new free-
dom, has force and reality; but
it is too much a work of reporting,
and too little a work of creative
fiction,

Among the books of high popu-
larity, Twilight On The Floods,
by Marguerite Steen, and The
Parasites, by Daphne du Maurier,
are conspicuous, Miss Steen’s vast,
lively, conscientious study of a
young man with an urge to im-
molate himself so that he may
somehow wipe out the sins of his
slave-trading forebears, will please
readers who are not seeking to
learn much which is new about
human beings. All these charac-
ter-types are distinct and bright
and they are strong enough to
support the load of narrative they
must carry; but types they are,
and types they remain. This is,
of course, adept story-telling.

From Miss au Maurier, too, one
always expects this. particular
gift; but she lets us down a little
in The Parasites, an evocative,
romantic tale of an actress, her
song-writing brother and her
writing-and-drawing sister. The
flashback device is used here with
somewhat vertiginous effect; and
despite the book’s nostalgic charm
and haunting perfume of powder
and grease-paint, it isn’t Miss du
Maurier’s best work.

majority over the other parties the King is
in a quandary. He must keep himself aloof
at all times from party politics. However,
even if such a contingency arises there is
the faithful non-political adviser around the’

tary leader has in mind and advises the King
accordingly.

Of Goverment

YESTERDAY was polling day in the 1950
British General Election, the results of
which will be known today.

For the past 5 years a Labour Govern-

ment has been in power, with the Conserva-

tives forming the opposition party.
What happens in the event of a defeat of

the Labour Party today?

Many fallacies exist as to the role the

King of England plays when there is a
change of Government. The most quoted
of these is that the King takes the advice of
the resigning Prime Minister as to whom he
should send for to form a new Government.

“This does not happen- ‘ The King accepts
the seals of office of all members of the

retiring Cabinet and sends for the leader of
the largest parliamentary political party
represented in the House of Commons and
asks him to form a cabinet.

If there is no single party with a clear






Court who sounds out what each parliamen-

This happened in 1931. Although it was not
in a majority the Labour Party was responsi-
ble for providing the government of the day.
There was an economic crisis and the Labour
leaders split as to the best means of combat-
ing it. Ramsay Macdonald, supported by
Phillip Snowden and James H. Thomas, ten-
dered his resignation.

The Conservative Party, of which Bonar
Law was the leader, was the functioning gov-
ernmental party. The next in seniority to
the dying Premier was Lord Curzon of Ked-
dleston, and he was in London awaiting the
King’s summons.

But through his non-political adviser at
the Court the King learned that there was
considerable opposition to a member of the
House of Lords becoming Prime Minister. So
the King sent for the then little-known
Stanley Baldwin to head the administration.

What was expected to happen in the cur-
rent General Election was that after the King
had dissolved Parliament on February 3 the
Government would be carried on by the
present Cabinet without a Parliament.

After the election results are known and
Labour has a majority Premier Attlee will
present himself to the King, but before doing
so he will have in his possession the resigna-
tions of all his Cabinet colleagues. He will
then present to the King the names of his
new Cabjnet which, it is believed in this case,
will be very much the same as the existing
cabinet. ’

Should. the Conservatives triumph, then
Attlee will formally present the King with his
resignation and the resignations of his Cabi-
net. The King will then send for Winston
Churchill.

However, should there not be a clear
majority of any one Party and a coalition is
imminent the precedent of 1931 will most
likely be followed.

MARCELLA PEEBLES





Chairman
All Star Bands
To The Edit
SIR,—It was with me 1use-
ment vhat I read the tter head
“All Star Band” l
“Musical Enthusi

appreciate anonymous letters as
they usually indicate fear or in-
feriorivy complex on the part of
the writer and I do not like people
who suffer from either. However,
I do feel I should say something
on the subject seeing that I was
more or less responsible for get-
ting togevher and conducting the
Orchestra referred to.

I agree with “Musical Enthusi-
ast” that “All Star Band” was not
a very good name for the combin-
avion and it was not my intention
or wish that it should so be called
On the other hand nearly all the
Orchestras I have ever known
have gone by names which were
not always suitable but, never-
theless served vheir purpose for
advertisement purposes.

I very much resent the following
remark and I quote:—“The very
term “All Star” conveys the im-
pression that the bes’ has been
selected, but others along with
myself were bitterly disappointed
to find the i



opposive.” this

statgment is undoubtedly an insult
to those musiciansewho worked
so hard and gave so generou of

. their time to make the venture a

success. It is an insult to me who

eelected them and it makes quite
clear the type of conceived fo

or best to look at? An “All Star”
band as conceived by “Musical
Enthusias’”’ would not be a success
as a band. It is not necessary and
not wise, for instance to select a
brilliant soloist to fill the posivion
say of third or fourth Sax. Special
qualities are required for men who
play in. these positions, e.g., the
ability vo read music well and
the art of effacing oneself from
the limelight and filling a back-
ground position. These men are
not “Stars” in the sense of being
outstanding performers bur’ they
fill a position which is invaluable
to the proper and smooth running
of a large Orchestra. They are
the “Stars” who do not shine but
are there nevertheless and the
combination would collapse with-
out them. “Musical Enthusiast”
would obviously not be able to
eccupy a position of this kind.

When outsvanding soloists of
American Dance Bands get to-
gether at Carnegie Hall for what
is known as a “Jam Session” they
do not function as an Orchestra

but each in Yurn displays his abil-
ity ot his particular instrument
That is entirely different thing
to a Band where, as I say men
have to efface vhemselves for the
good of the Band as a whole. It is
just like an Army. If an Army



The preformers in the 14 piece
Orchestra, which I felt greatly
privileged and honoured to con-
duct, all proved vheir worth not
only as musicians but as men who
had that invaluable quality of
being able to work with and un-
derstand their fellow workers and
they are deserving, every one of
them, of the highest praise.

The standard reached may not
have been the highest of which
they are capable but, taking into
consideration, the very short ‘ime
at their disposal and the fact that
only one full rehearsal was possi-
ble at which nine completely new
orchestrations were run through,
no reasonable person in the world |
could have expecied a better per-}
formance.

_ Re the suggestion or concep-
tion of “Musical Enthusiast” for
what he calls an “All Star” band

I think the least said about tha’
the better because it is obviously
the suggestion of a musical illiter-
aie.

_ I would carry on like this ad
infinitum but fail to see what ben-
efit would be arrived at, and so

ill end by merely suggesting to
“Musical Enthusiast” that he con-
fine his activities to and employ
his time with matters with which
he may be more acquainted.

This was defeated as already
stated by the following counter
motion of Mr. A. R. Toppin sec-
onded by Mr. A. S, Bryden.

“This Vestry has carefully in-
vestigated the circumstances and
have decided that there is no
moral or legal justification in giv-
ing retrospective pay to their em-
ployees as suggested.”

Mr. A. S. Bryden said that it
had been said that he had stated
at a_ certain Vestry meeting that
the Vestry would give back pay,
but at no time at that meeting as
far as he could recollect, had the
question of back pay arisen

had been asking for an increase in
salary, and the Vestry decided
that they were not prepared to

Scale of salaries of the|wculd give his vote.
Vestry’s employees should be in-
vestigated when the Vestry knew

what the report was like.

The framers of the Vestry Act
in their wisdom had not provided
them with the powers to give
back pay, and if now the time had
come when it was considered that
he Act should be amended so
that they would be able to offer
back pay let the proper authorities
do so

As far as the subsi boards
were concerned it was not in the
province of the Vestry to tell them
what to do, but as far as their
own employees were concerned,
they had made it abundantly clear
on several oceagions, that they
were not prepared to pay them
back pay.

Mr. C. A. Brathwaite urged
that they be sympathetic towards
the Parochial employees in this
matter, though of course the Ves-
try was in no way obligated.

He thought that they should
ask the Government’s assistance
in the matter,

No Obligation

Hon. V. C. Gale said that the
question of back pay had been
before the Vestry on other occa-
sions. The last time the Vestry
had decided that they were not
under any obligation to pay their
employees back pay.

He had been in the Vestry for
many years and had introduced <
resolution in the early days of the
war to give war bonus to the em-
ployees of the Vestry. This was
done and it was a step taken long

when the matter was first dis-
cussed, he had yet been the target
of abuse for not allowing the
Vestry to pay retrospective pay
to their employees, His conscience,
however, was quite clear. If there
was one group of people who he
would like to see get back pay
was that of the scavengers, but
he did not think it would be fair
to do it for them alone and not
for the other employees. If it
were to be done it should be done
for all.
Unfortunate Position

He was in the unfortunate
position now of being the Chair-
man of,the Westbury Cemetery
Commissioners; Chairman of the
Scavenging Department, a mem-
ber of the Commissioners of '
Health and as such a member of
the Finance Committee; Hence
he had been appointed in the,
capacity of representing both |
boards at the conciliation meeting. |

The decision arrived at signed |
by Mr. Kidney Chairman of the|
Commissioners of Health and
himself, spoke for itself. They ,
felt that there was moral justi- |
fication in the request of the
employees of the two boards
mentioned, for retrospective pay.
He, however, wanted to make it
clear to the Vestry, that they as
the parent body would have to
make the decision not only for
the Commissioners of Health and
the Westbury Cemetery Com-
missioners, but for all the em-
ployees of the Vestry.

He was prepared to support the
Vestry in any movement to pay,

back pay to all of their employees. | pele the Gemeamnaait tad tanek

On Tuesday evening, February

guests, His Honour the Admin-
istrator, Mr. John M. Stow, C.M.G.
declared the new bulk petroleum

Honourable George McG. Peter,
C.B.E., of Messrs Peter & Co,
Agents, iniroduced Mr. Kerbey,
Sales Manager of Petroleum Mar-
keting Products Ltd., of Trinidad.

In a short address Mr. Kerbey
reviewed the course of events
dating from 1937 when his Com-
pany -decided that in order to
bring supplies of main producis
to all their markets by the most
modern and economical methods
it. should establish small bulk
plants at all points in the area
where ‘fiese could be economically
justified on the basis of the total
ecnsumption of each product in
each particular market. Negoti-
ations which were ; it off due vo
the war were resumed during
1946—47 and the site was acquired
early in 1948. Handicapped
through the shortage of all mate-
rials especially steel, actual
construction was not begun until
February 1949. Completion was
effected in about 30 weeks.

comprehensive scheme to increase

A. Cuke along with other mem-
bers of the Vestry went into the
matter. Again this was long before
ihe Government had taken any
similar action. From_the Parochial
Treasurer down to the lowest paid
employee was given an increase.
After that there was a further in-
vestigation and a cost of living
onus was added to these increases
Delay

The reason why the Govern-
ment had to give out so much
money for back pay was because
of the delay that had been entail-
ed after the Report of the Commis-

Co., the workmen, in particualr,
Mr. Dave Chapman of Messrs
Minvielle & Chastanev’s Construc-
tion Department. He then asked
His Honour to declare the installa-

Facts And Figures

Mr. Moiuey further pointed
out that in dealing with the mat-
ter and before anyone should think
of turning down the suggestion,
they should ascertain facts and
figures relative to what it would
cost. If it were accepted, there
were three ways open by which
they could raise the necessary
money, one was by getting the
Vestry Act amended so as to give
the Vestry power to make pro-
vision for the amount in the Esti-
mates for the year 1950-51; to get

R. Toppm seconded by Mr. A. S. Brydi-n. •'This Vestry has carefully investigated the dreumata) have decided that there is no moral or legal justification in giving retrospective pay to tb ployecs as suggested Government. Seale Of Salaries Mr A S Pryden said that it had been said that he had stated at a certain Vestry meeting that tha Vestry would give back pay. but at no time at that meeting as tax us he could recollect, had tha question of back pay arisen Some member of the clerical Mai had been asking for an increase salary, and the Veitry decided lhac they were not prepared to reason why they should give back pay for 1948—1949 He did not think it was right. 17 it were right, they should stand on their feet as men and ask the rate payeis for help. In his wav of thinking they were shifting their responsibility. While he saw what Mr. Mottley wanted, from his view, he could not agree to any back pay because he could not differentiate j between manual and other workers. Mr. Bownng supported Mr Leacock's views. Mr. Mottley said that he wasi ''rant it at that time as ttie quspresently the only member J who couid throw any further light on the matter. Although he had not been present when the matter was first discussed, he had yet been the target of abuse for not allowing tha Vestry to pay retrospective pay to their employees. His conscience, however, was quite clear. If there was one group of people who he would like to see get back pay was that of the scavengers, but he did not think it would be fair to do ft for them alone and not for the other employees. If it were to be done it should be done for all. Unfortunate Position He was in the unfortunate position now of being the Chairman of the Westbury Cemetery Commissioners. Chairman of the Scavenging Department, a member of the Commissioners of Health and as such a member oi the Finance Committee; Hence w,."* 5 tion of the scale of salaries of the Government employees was being considered by Mr Adams the Commissioner and that the scale of salaries of the mployees should be investigated when the Vestry knew what the report was like. The framers of the Vestry Act in their wisdom had not provided them with the powers to give back pay, and if now the time had come when it was considered tha'. he Act should be amended so 'hat they would be able to offer back pay let the proper authorities do so. As far as the subsidiary boards were concerned It waa not in the piovince of ahe Vestry to tell them what to do, but as far as their employees were concerned. they had made it abundantly clear on several occasions, that they were not prepared to pay them Mi. C A. Browne said that he was not in favour of the back pay and in his way of thinking it would be immoral to ask the taxpayers to stand this. Mr. F. E. C. Bethel! said that he was not in agreement with retrospective pay. If. however, it could be arranged to give the scavengers back pay, then he w(Mid give his vote. 415 Tourists Came Yesterday him that Price Of Gasolene Reduced Mr C. A. Brathwaite urged 'hit they be sympathetic towards lbs Parochial employees in th.s matter, though of course die Va> he had been appointed in the capacity of representing both boards at the conciliation mectm* The decision arrived at signed by Mr Kidney Chairman TS | U WSf IS S*^ Commissioners of Health and himself, spoke for itself. They felt that there was moral justification m the request of the employees of the two boards mentioned, for retrospective pay. He thought that they should ask' the Government's assistance in the matter. No Obligation Hon V. c. Gale said that the, question of back pay had been He, however, wanted to make "it b f' n HT X e ,r > r " other occa_1 a .. % %  vlftttc Thai fftuf llfHA aiij. tr^.tu., clear to the Vestry, that they as the parent body would have to make the decision not only for the Commissioners of Health and the Westbury Cemetery Commissioners, but for all the employees of the Vestry. He was prepared to support the Vestry in any movement to pay back pay to all of their employees. He had two or three years ago atOM The last time ttve Vestry had decided that they were not under any obligation to pay their employees back pay. He had been in the Vestry foi many years and had introduced ; i (solution in the early days of the war to give war bonus to the em ployees of the Vestry. This wa. done and it was a step taken Ion* before the Government had tak. dealt wth a similar "matter and ,on e £V sun H!T d J'" cUon %  ."*' had been successful.

CHARGED : a W-year-ok. : 'vy was placed /""hip Mr E. A. 'dav and charged was somewhat different then. He hoped members would agree with him that the claim of the employees was a moral otn sldered th.it thr entire matter could possibly have been solved at an earlier stage by soft-! oomprehensive scheme to increase .. i lha vnlartssssi of thai%  Government's had been. Th Vestry's war bonus had continue until it was* considered that it was no longer possible to carry on. They had then embarked on er words, milder a-gument and more dignified persuasion. Kails And Figures Mr. Mo.Lii-y further pointed In dealing with the matter and before anyone should think of turning down the suggestion, they should ascertain facts and figures relative to what it would cost. If it were accepted, there were three ways open by whuh they could raise the necessary money, one was by getting the Vestry Act amended so as to give the Vestry power to make provision for the amount in the Estithe salaries of their employee and it was in 1944 that Hon. H A Cuke along with other member* of the Vestry went into the matter. Again this was long befor. Jie Government had taken anf similar acUon. Frorn_&he Parochial Treasurer down to toe lowest paid employee was given an increase After that there was a further Inm snd a cost of ttvtau, bonus was added to these Increases Delay The reason why the Government had to give out so mucii •y for back pay was because ^^^^^;:^ i --^^o?,Kcanm: 1 Bill passed in the Legislature authorising them to borrow the necassary amount, or as had been suggested, ask the government for Bsavtanoa -Mr T O. Miller said that it was long over a year that the matter had been pending and he hoped that that afternoon a favourable -wuld be reached in the interests of the partxi ployees. He agreed with Mr. Mottley when he said that he was not in favour* wiin .Se principle of paying one group of parochial employees and net another. Government paid retrospective pay to their employees throunh the taxpayers and the same taxpayers were willing to pay the parochial employees for work which they had done In order to maintain a high degree of satisfaction loner. Mr Adams, had been presented. This waa not the ca*-> with the Vestry. When the matter of the revision of the salaries o their employees was being considered last year it was decidt to put into the Estimates for tl vear .lie netessaM pro-. the increases that would be made. Lvery vestryman had agreed to this, but he had not heard one %  jpecUve pay for the financial year 1948—49. Ail the circumsUr.<- of the employees had been levised at the time and everyone iiad agreed that the increasewould be as from March 25, 1949 There waa no question of any back pay as from March 25 1944 Soon after they had earned ou B&rsedo* Advocate CniTiapssslJia' ST.

A Real F ear

IN MOVING the passing of a resolution
at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce
this week, Mr. A. S. Bryden made out a
strong case against the present policy of
the Colonial Office in imposing too severe
a code of restrictions on the expenditure of
Canadian dollars for the purchase of goods
by the West Indies. The point made by Mr.
Bryden was not merely that these increased
restrictions worked hardships but would
have the inevitable reSult of losing us the

services of the Canadian National Steam-

The facts and figures adduced were not
new but in the present circumstances they
bear a terrible emphasis. Business men
in Barbados have from time to time ex-
pressed fears that the policy of restriction
would do irreparable damage to our import
and export trade. It was pointed out that
the obligation to purchase goods within
the sterling area would increase the cost
of living. That this fear was justified is
to be gathered from the fact that a Con-
ference at government level will be held
in this island during March, to investigate
to what extent devaluation has affected
the economy of these colonies-

But if there is good reason for the belief
that the policy adopted before and after
devaluation will adversely affect West
Indies trade with Canada, there is now
the grave danger that because of the re-
striction of that trade the Canadian
National Steamships will be taken off the
West Indian route.

Two years ago public discussion brought
to light the fact that for steamship services
we had been badly served in this island.
tt was difficult to travel between the
islands or from the area to Europe or
the United States. The situation reached
such a stage that students to the Universi-
ties were compelled to use plane services
at extremely high rates or travel by cargo
steamers, if they were lucky, when the
time came for them to begin their terms.

The Canadian National Steamships have
filled a gap which no other line can be
expected to fill if these are withdrawn.
The service was inaugurated in accordance
with the terms of the Canada-West Indies
Trade Agreement, and so important was
it regarded, that the West Indian Colonies
subsidised the Company.

Already there is grave discontent in
Canada over the redirection of West Indian
trade asa result of the new policy which

, compels us to buy goods within the sterling
area. That trade which had been fostered
by Canada during the last thirty years
was worth 85 million dollars in 1949 and
was estimated to be worth one hundred
million dollars in 1950. Its loss to Canadian
manufacturers would justify the removal
of the C.N.S. from the West Indian route;
but it is hoped that some effort will be
made to retain it, The case“might have
been less difficult if British Steamship
companies were willing to supply a service
but as was pointed out by the British Gov-
ernment last year, nothing could be done
because the Government had no control
over the steamship companies.

The resolution will be forwarded to the
Secretary of State for the Colonies and
among other bodies to the Associated West
Indian Chambers of Commerce in order
that appropriate action may be taken. But
it is the duty of the Legislatures of the
various islands to make it plain to the
British Government that a trade policy
which looks only after the interests of the
British worker can be detrimental to
Colonial peoples.

The Barbados House of Assembly might
wel! avoid its error as in the case of the
sugar question and give immediate support
to this resolution.

BLACK OUT |

Busy men have little time for
frivolous amusements. I am a very
busy man indeed and have abso-
lutely no time for frolic and fun.
In truth and in fact, my only
occasional amusement is to tweak
the cat's tail when the feline is
foolish enough to approach too
close to my eager talons. This
cruel habit is inherited, no doubt,
from my Uncle Horatio, who, as
a small boy, tormented flies and
stuck pins through beetles. In
later years he tormented people
by borrowing money from them
and neglecting to return same.
It caused little regret to society
when he met his death by

ee pond at Sir
Hubert "s place near

Reigate. However, Uncle Hora-
tio has nothing to do with the
matter in question.. As I trust I
have made plain, I am a very
busy man. A week or so ago I
received a telephone call from a
certain young lady in whose
company I have spent many de-
lightful hours (before I became
a very busy man). She informed
me, in no terms I for-
got business for a moment and
took her out to dinner—there
would be no more delightfu!
hours for me in her company-—
there being many far more inter-
esting men available who were
never busy. Faced with such «
threat I had no alternative but to
comply. There then arose the
usual problem of where to go and
dine on credit, but this was final-
ly overcome with my customary
ingenuity and tact. Seven o’clock
that evening saw us comfortably
installed in pleasant, bright sur-
roundings, anticipating flying fish
and other gourmet’s delicacies.
It was when the first spoonful of
soup was on the way to the yawn-
ing aperture I call my mouth that
every light in the place went out
and things were no longer pleas-
ant and bright. The situation
was not aided by the fact that,
in my surprise (I suffer from
nervous neurosis) I dropped
the spoon into the soup,

By Pamela Hansford Johnson

Gloomy persons so accustomed
to launching jeremiads against the
poverty of modern fiction that they
would scarcely notice if a Dickens,
Thackeray or Charlotte Bronte
suddenly sprang up fully-armed
beneath their noses, might rouse
themselves from lethargy to con-
sider a recent crop of English
novels.

There seems to me now a mark-
ed breakaway from the frail and
nervous type of work so charac-
teristic of the past few years—
from the “critic’s book,” as dis-
tinct from the book the common
reader both admires and enjoys.
Novelists of the highest talent are
beginning once more to tell stories
about people, and to regard this as
the first requirement of their art.
There is less reporting; there is
less symbolism; there 15
less groping away from. the pres-
ent to the future or to the past.

To my mind, by far the most
striking novel of the past few
months is C. P. Snow’s Time Of
Hope, the third volume in his pro-
jected series of novels designed to
cover a quarter of a century of
the English scene, and * almost
every aspect of social life. Appre-
ciation of Mr. Snow's work. slow
in crystallising, now seems fairly
general. He is a writer of great
humanity, breadth and compas-
| sion, and if he makes one really
+ heavy demand on the reader it 1s
this: that the Jatter shall, as he
reads. try to match either by his
own remembered experience or
imaginative sympathy, the experi-
ence of the young man Lewis
Eliot, brilliant, but bitterly poor,
who gropes his way doggedly up-
wards to worldly success, whic
is at Jast turned to ashes by 2
destructive love. Each novel in
this series, by the way, is‘designea
to be read as a work in its own
right. The novels as a whole are
\ connected by a single narrator,
who is Eliot himself.

The other outstanding event of
the season has been the publication
of Joyce Cary's A Fearful Joy, 2
raging torrent of a book, wild-
spirited, idiosyncratic, about a
pug-nosed girl haunted by ar
obsessive love, who finds herself
a “Beardsley beauty,” the queen
of the “Yellow Book” salons, and
at last, ageing but still rampant,
discovers in the life of her grand-
daughter the obsessed pattern of
her own. This is not so good 8
book as The Horse’s Mouth—the
pace is too great for anyone’s
cemfort, author’s or reader’s; but

Messrs. T. R. Ev

it would make the autumn nota-
ble even if no other work of dis-
tinction had appeared to compete
with it.

The autumn, however, has pro-
duced already several works of a
high order. I have mentioned
Anthony West’s On A Dark Night,
which though unnecessarily hard
reading, offers high rewards to
the sensitive imagination. This
story of a hanged German general
and the lawyer responsible for
sending him to his death, both of
them condemned to make what
they can of the “After Life,” is
full of power and of ideas; but the
ideas are too many and too mud-
died, and Mr. West has not man-
aged to sort them out even to a
preliminary design.

All the same, his writing has
quality, and his book is rich with
the kind of human sympathy and
curiosity so often lacking entirely
in imaginative works of this kind.

Rhys Davies’ volume of short
steries, Boy With A Trumpet,
beautifully reveals this “writer's
gift for comic poetry. On the dark
side he is.atways impressive, but
never quite credible—as the title
story discovers; but when he is
writing of Rowland Canute who
disgraced himself when Up for
the Cup, or of Catherine Fuschias
who could not quite explain
away the presence of a corpse in
her house, his gifts glitter in their
morning gold, and he soars beyond
the reach of criticism, of analysis,
of anything save the purest
pleasure.

Two books have strongly captur-
ed my own imagination: The
Sacked City, by George R. Preedy,
a queer, nightmarish, poetic tale
of a young man recovering from a
nervous illness on a mysterious
(sland; and The Wonder Of All
The Gay World, by James Barke,
third in his series of four novels

Carter, Miss February 21.

TT do not, in

peared in your issue of Tuesday,

on the life of Robert Burns. This
is a very endearing man-to-man
story, rough, warm and humane,
though not recommended to. the
morally-indignant.

I must also say a word about
another Scottish book—The Cry
Of The Wd, a first novel by
Stewart Hunter. This tale of love
and sorrow, scandal and loving-
kindness in a Lowlands village,
is full of promise for the future.
It has strength and originality,
though the author's characterisa-
tion is at present rather weak.
Such Pleasure, by Martin Boyd, is
a shimmering sad tale of a young
woman heaved up and down in
the trough of society, who grows
into a harridan dreaming only of
returning to her “inheritance”
Mt. Boyd has a bright and lovely
style, and his visual sense is ex-
quisite.. One is. less; conscious. of
reading this story than of seeing
it. i?

Robert Kee’s second novel, The
Impossible Shore, concerning a
prisoner-of-war liberated by the
Russians and discovering precious
little difference between the old
confinement and the new free-
dom, has force and reality; but
it is too much a work of reporting,
and too little a work of creative
fiction,

Among the books of high popu-
larity, Twilight On The Floods,
by Marguerite Steen, and The
Parasites, by Daphne du Maurier,
are conspicuous, Miss Steen’s vast,
lively, conscientious study of a
young man with an urge to im-
molate himself so that he may
somehow wipe out the sins of his
slave-trading forebears, will please
readers who are not seeking to
learn much which is new about
human beings. All these charac-
ter-types are distinct and bright
and they are strong enough to
support the load of narrative they
must carry; but types they are,
and types they remain. This is,
of course, adept story-telling.

From Miss au Maurier, too, one
always expects this. particular
gift; but she lets us down a little
in The Parasites, an evocative,
romantic tale of an actress, her
song-writing brother and her
writing-and-drawing sister. The
flashback device is used here with
somewhat vertiginous effect; and
despite the book’s nostalgic charm
and haunting perfume of powder
and grease-paint, it isn’t Miss du
Maurier’s best work.

majority over the other parties the King is
in a quandary. He must keep himself aloof
at all times from party politics. However,
even if such a contingency arises there is
the faithful non-political adviser around the’

tary leader has in mind and advises the King
accordingly.

Of Goverment

YESTERDAY was polling day in the 1950
British General Election, the results of
which will be known today.

For the past 5 years a Labour Govern-

ment has been in power, with the Conserva-

tives forming the opposition party.
What happens in the event of a defeat of

the Labour Party today?

Many fallacies exist as to the role the

King of England plays when there is a
change of Government. The most quoted
of these is that the King takes the advice of
the resigning Prime Minister as to whom he
should send for to form a new Government.

“This does not happen- ‘ The King accepts
the seals of office of all members of the

retiring Cabinet and sends for the leader of
the largest parliamentary political party
represented in the House of Commons and
asks him to form a cabinet.

If there is no single party with a clear






Court who sounds out what each parliamen-

This happened in 1931. Although it was not
in a majority the Labour Party was responsi-
ble for providing the government of the day.
There was an economic crisis and the Labour
leaders split as to the best means of combat-
ing it. Ramsay Macdonald, supported by
Phillip Snowden and James H. Thomas, ten-
dered his resignation.

The Conservative Party, of which Bonar
Law was the leader, was the functioning gov-
ernmental party. The next in seniority to
the dying Premier was Lord Curzon of Ked-
dleston, and he was in London awaiting the
King’s summons.

But through his non-political adviser at
the Court the King learned that there was
considerable opposition to a member of the
House of Lords becoming Prime Minister. So
the King sent for the then little-known
Stanley Baldwin to head the administration.

What was expected to happen in the cur-
rent General Election was that after the King
had dissolved Parliament on February 3 the
Government would be carried on by the
present Cabinet without a Parliament.

After the election results are known and
Labour has a majority Premier Attlee will
present himself to the King, but before doing
so he will have in his possession the resigna-
tions of all his Cabinet colleagues. He will
then present to the King the names of his
new Cabjnet which, it is believed in this case,
will be very much the same as the existing
cabinet. ’

Should. the Conservatives triumph, then
Attlee will formally present the King with his
resignation and the resignations of his Cabi-
net. The King will then send for Winston
Churchill.

However, should there not be a clear
majority of any one Party and a coalition is
imminent the precedent of 1931 will most
likely be followed.

Chairman
All Star Bands
To The Edit
SIR,—It was with me 1use-
ment vhat I read the tter head
“All Star Band” l
“Musical Enthusi

appreciate anonymous letters as
they usually indicate fear or in-
feriorivy complex on the part of
the writer and I do not like people
who suffer from either. However,
I do feel I should say something
on the subject seeing that I was
more or less responsible for get-
ting togevher and conducting the
Orchestra referred to.

I agree with “Musical Enthusi-
ast” that “All Star Band” was not
a very good name for the combin-
avion and it was not my intention
or wish that it should so be called
On the other hand nearly all the
Orchestras I have ever known
have gone by names which were
not always suitable but, never-
theless served vheir purpose for
advertisement purposes.

I very much resent the following
remark and I quote:—“The very
term “All Star” conveys the im-
pression that the bes’ has been
selected, but others along with
myself were bitterly disappointed
to find the i



opposive.” this

statgment is undoubtedly an insult
to those musiciansewho worked
so hard and gave so generou of

. their time to make the venture a

success. It is an insult to me who

eelected them and it makes quite
clear the type of conceived fo

or best to look at? An “All Star”
band as conceived by “Musical
Enthusias’”’ would not be a success
as a band. It is not necessary and
not wise, for instance to select a
brilliant soloist to fill the posivion
say of third or fourth Sax. Special
qualities are required for men who
play in. these positions, e.g., the
ability vo read music well and
the art of effacing oneself from
the limelight and filling a back-
ground position. These men are
not “Stars” in the sense of being
outstanding performers bur’ they
fill a position which is invaluable
to the proper and smooth running
of a large Orchestra. They are
the “Stars” who do not shine but
are there nevertheless and the
combination would collapse with-
out them. “Musical Enthusiast”
would obviously not be able to
eccupy a position of this kind.

When outsvanding soloists of
American Dance Bands get to-
gether at Carnegie Hall for what
is known as a “Jam Session” they
do not function as an Orchestra

but each in Yurn displays his abil-
ity ot his particular instrument
That is entirely different thing
to a Band where, as I say men
have to efface vhemselves for the
good of the Band as a whole. It is
just like an Army. If an Army



The preformers in the 14 piece
Orchestra, which I felt greatly
privileged and honoured to con-
duct, all proved vheir worth not
only as musicians but as men who
had that invaluable quality of
being able to work with and un-
derstand their fellow workers and
they are deserving, every one of
them, of the highest praise.

The standard reached may not
have been the highest of which
they are capable but, taking into
consideration, the very short ‘ime
at their disposal and the fact that
only one full rehearsal was possi-
ble at which nine completely new
orchestrations were run through,
no reasonable person in the world |
could have expecied a better per-}
formance.

_ Re the suggestion or concep-
tion of “Musical Enthusiast” for
what he calls an “All Star” band

I think the least said about tha’
the better because it is obviously
the suggestion of a musical illiter-
aie.

_ I would carry on like this ad
infinitum but fail to see what ben-
efit would be arrived at, and so

ill end by merely suggesting to
“Musical Enthusiast” that he con-
fine his activities to and employ
his time with matters with which
he may be more acquainted.

This was defeated as already

“This Vestry has carefully in-

ployees as suggested.”

the Vestry would give back pay,

Scale of salaries of the|wculd give his vote.
Vestry’s employees should be in-
vestigated when the Vestry knew

what the report was like.

The framers of the Vestry Act
in their wisdom had not provided
them with the powers to give
back pay, and if now the time had
come when it was considered that
he Act should be amended so
that they would be able to offer
back pay let the proper authorities
do so

As far as the subsi boards
were concerned it was not in the
province of the Vestry to tell them
what to do, but as far as their
own employees were concerned,
they had made it abundantly clear
on several oceagions, that they
were not prepared to pay them
back pay.

Mr. C. A. Brathwaite urged
that they be sympathetic towards
the Parochial employees in this
matter, though of course the Ves-
try was in no way obligated.

He thought that they should
ask the Government’s assistance
in the matter,

No Obligation

Hon. V. C. Gale said that the
question of back pay had been
before the Vestry on other occa-
sions. The last time the Vestry
had decided that they were not
under any obligation to pay their
employees back pay.

He had been in the Vestry for
many years and had introduced <
resolution in the early days of the
war to give war bonus to the em-
ployees of the Vestry. This was
done and it was a step taken long

when the matter was first dis-
cussed, he had yet been the target
of abuse for not allowing the
Vestry to pay retrospective pay
to their employees, His conscience,
however, was quite clear. If there
was one group of people who he
would like to see get back pay
was that of the scavengers, but
he did not think it would be fair
to do it for them alone and not
for the other employees. If it
were to be done it should be done
for all.
Unfortunate Position

He was in the unfortunate
position now of being the Chair-
man of,the Westbury Cemetery
Commissioners; Chairman of the
Scavenging Department, a mem-
ber of the Commissioners of '
Health and as such a member of
the Finance Committee; Hence
he had been appointed in the,
capacity of representing both |
boards at the conciliation meeting. |

The decision arrived at signed |
by Mr. Kidney Chairman of the|
Commissioners of Health and
himself, spoke for itself. They ,
felt that there was moral justi- |
fication in the request of the
employees of the two boards
mentioned, for retrospective pay.
He, however, wanted to make it
clear to the Vestry, that they as
the parent body would have to
make the decision not only for
the Commissioners of Health and
the Westbury Cemetery Com-
missioners, but for all the em-
ployees of the Vestry.

He was prepared to support the
Vestry in any movement to pay,

In a short address Mr. Kerbey
reviewed the course of events
dating from 1937 when his Com-
pany -decided that in order to
bring supplies of main producis
to all their markets by the most
modern and economical methods
it. should establish small bulk
plants at all points in the area
where ‘fiese could be economically
justified on the basis of the total
ecnsumption of each product in
each particular market. Negoti-
ations which were ; it off due vo
the war were resumed during
1946—47 and the site was acquired
early in 1948. Handicapped
through the shortage of all mate-
rials especially steel, actual
construction was not begun until
February 1949. Completion was
effected in about 30 weeks.

A. Cuke along with other mem-
bers of the Vestry went into the
matter. Again this was long before
ihe Government had taken any
similar action. From_the Parochial
Treasurer down to the lowest paid
employee was given an increase.
After that there was a further in-
vestigation and a cost of living
onus was added to these increases
Delay

The reason why the Govern-
ment had to give out so much
money for back pay was because
of the delay that had been entail-
ed after the Report of the Commis-

Facts And Figures

Mr. Moiuey further pointed
out that in dealing with the mat-
ter and before anyone should think
of turning down the suggestion,
they should ascertain facts and
figures relative to what it would
cost. If it were accepted, there
were three ways open by which
they could raise the necessary
money, one was by getting the
Vestry Act amended so as to give
the Vestry power to make pro-
vision for the amount in the Esti-

Delicious Quaker Oats gives you
a generous supply of important
food elements in a healthful,
whole-grain cereal.

Rich in Vitamin B, which turns food into “body-
fuel”, Quaker Oats aids in building resistance to
fatigue. Because it supplies needed nourishment
with so little tax on the digestive system, this
“natural” food is favored by elderly people as well
as growing youngsters and active adults. Quaker
Oats is the perfect breakfast for a// the family!

If5i A Heal Fear MOVING the passing of a resolution at a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce this week. Mr. A. S. Bryden made out a strong case against the present policy of the Colonial Office in imposing too severe a code of restrictions on the expenditure of Canadian dollars for the purchase of goods by the West Indies. The point made by Mr. B'ryden was not merely that these increased restrictions worked hardships but would have the inevitable result of losing us the services of the Canadian National Steamships. The facts and figures adduced were not new but in the present circumstances they bear a terrible emphasis. Business men in Barbados have from time to lime expressed fears that the policy of restriction would do irreparable damage to our import and export trade. It was pointed out that the obligation to purchase goods within the sterling area would increase the cost of living. That this fear was justified is to be gathered from the fact that a Conference at government level will be held in this island during March, to investigate to what extent devaluation has affected the economy of these colonies But if there is good reason for the belief that the policy adopted before and after devaluation will advenely affect West Indies trade with Canada, there is now the grave danger that because of the restriction of that trade the Canadian National Steamships will be taken off the West Indian route. Two years ago public discussion brought to light'the lact that for steamship services we had been badly served in this island, ft was difficult to travel between the islands or from the area to Europe or the United States. The situation reached such a stage that students to the Universi... ire compelled to use plane services at extremely high rates or travel by cargo steamers, if they were lucky, when the time came for them to begin their terms. The Canadian National Steamships have filled a cap which no other line can be expected to fill if these are withdrawn. The servicewas inaugurated in accordance with the terms of the Canada-West Indies Trade Agreement, and so important was lad, that the West Indian Colonies subsidised the Company. Already there is grave disconten 1 in Canada over the redirection of West Indian trade a* a result of the new policy which compels in to buy goods within the sterling area That trade which had been fostered bv Canada during the last thirty years was worth 85 million dollars in 1949 and was estimated to be worth one hundred million dollars in 1950. Its loss to Canadian manufacturers would justify the removal S. from the West Indian route; • is hoped that some effort will be made to retain it. The case-might have been less difficult if British Steamship companies were willing to supply a service but as was pointed out by the British Government last year, nothing could be done because the Government had no control %  he steamship companies. The r. solution will be forwarded to the Secretary of State for the Colonies and among other bodies to the Associated West Indian Chambers of Commerce in order that appropriate action may be taken But it is the duty of the Legislatures of the various islands to make it plain to the British Government that a trade policy I loob only after the interest, ..t tbi British worker can be detrimental >o Bill peoples.

The King And A Change Of Goverment YESTERDAY was polling day in the 1950 British General Election, the results of which will bknown today. For the past 5 years a Labour Government has been in power, with the Conservatives forming the opposition party. What happens in the event of a defeat of the Labour Party today? Many fallacies exist as to the role the| King of England plays when there is a change of Government. The most quoted of these is that the King takes the advice of Ihe resigning Prime Minister as to whom he should send for to form a new Government. This does not happenThe King accepts the seals of office of all members of the retiring Cabinet and sends for the leader of the largest parliamentary political party represented in the House of Commons and asks him to form a cabinet. If there is no single party with a clear majority over the other parties the King is in a quandary. He must keep himself aloof at all times from party politics. However, even if such a contingency arises there is the faithful non-political adviser around the" Court who sounds out what each parliamentary leader has in mind and advises the King accordingly. This happened in 1931. Although it was not in a majority the Labour Party was responsible for providing the government of the day There was an economic crisis and the Labour leaders split as to the best means of combating it. Ramsay Macdonald, supported by Phillip Snowden and James H. Thomas, tendered his resignation. The Conservative Party, of which Bonar Law was the leader, was the functioning governmental party. The next in seniority to the dying Premier was Lord Curzon of Keddleston, and he was in London awaiting the Kind's summons. But through his non-political adviser at the Court the King learned that there was considerable opposition to a member of the House of Lords becoming Prime Minister So the King sent for the then little-known Stanley Baldwin to head the administration. What was expec>ed to happen in the current General Election was that after the King had dissolved Parliament on February 3 the Government would be carried on by the present Cabinet without a Parliament. After the election results are known and Labour has a majority Premier Attlee will present himself to the King, but before doing so he will have in his possession the resignations of all his Cabinet colleagues. He will; then present to the King the names of his: new Qabjnet which, it is believed in this case, | will be very much the same as the existing cabinet. Should the Conservatives triumph, then Attlee will formally present the King with his resignation and the resignations of his Cabinet. The King will then send for Winston Churchill. However, should there not be a clear majority of any one Party and a coalition is imminent the precedent of 1931 will most, likely be followed.
