Rumania “Making

SAYS ACHESON

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.
Secretary of State Dean Ache-
son said to-day the Communist
Governments of Eastern Europe
were attempting to cut off their
peoples from the free world and
“deprive them: of all hope of any
other fate than that reserved for

them by their present rulers.”
At his weekly News Conference
Mr. Acheson referred to the recent
break in relations between the
United States and Bulgaria and
the sentencing to long terms of

imprisonment in Hungary of Vog-

Mr. Acheson said the two men
were convicted “on false charges

without a fair trial,” which formed |

part of a general pattern, common
to Russia’s satellites. Mr. acheson
accused Hungary. and Rumania

Neck And Neck Race

"7 HE LABOUR PARTY has tonight won the British General Election

LONDON, Feb. 24

with an overall majority— so slim that the nation may have to go to the
polls in a few months or weeks.

The photo-finis: election—most sensational in the nation’s history—
with figures at 8.2) p.m. were: Labour 314, Conservatives 291, Liberals
8, Communist and other Parties nil.

Labour, with 3 4 seats so far in a House of 624 cannot be outvoted
if all its members «re present. Scotland saved the day for Labour:

Attlee Will
Carry On

LONDON, Feb. 24.
Prime Minister Clement
Attlee is likely to carry on the
British Labour Government
however small a majority he
has over other parties, it was
authoritatively learned here
to-night.
He will put his position to
a specially summoned meet-

ing of the British Cabinet
to-morrow morning. As _ his
Party still has a majority,

Mr. Attlee is not called upon
under the Constitution to re-
sign. On present indications
he may face Parliament in the
ordinary way when the new
House of Commons meets for
the first time on March 1,

But the deadlock arising
from the election has plunged
Labour and the Conservatives
into the greatest constitution-
al dilemma in British history
for over a century. There are
still a few results to be declar-
ed and for this and other reas-
ons. some days may elapse
before Mr. Attlee in consulta-
tion with the leaders of the
Cabinet and the chiefs of the
Labour Party makes his final
decision,

Difficulty

Attlee’s personal feeling is
understood to be that if La-
bour has an absolute overall
majority, then there must be
a Labour Government, doubt-
less with the reconstruction
usual after a general election
But if Labour transpired to be
merely the leading part fn
many difficulties of preneiplé
will arise and the Prime Min-
ister will have to decide
whether to inform the King
that he is unable to carry on.
These provisions need Parlia-
mentary sanction and a weak-
ened Government might have
considerable difficulty in ob-
taining it.

It is not yet possible to say
whether Labour would agree
to a working arrangement
with the eight Liberals. They
would support a Labour Gov-
ernment, it is understoood, if
nationalisation were not fur-
ther extended.

Cabinet leaders believe that
the effect of 475 Liberal can-
didates in this election dam-
aged Labour even more than
the Ring Wing Party.

To have a chance of re-
maining in office, Labour will
have to impose iron discipline
upon all its Parliamentary
followers, lest by a single ab-
sentee it should be snap-voted
of office, Labour is uneasy
about “support” from other
parties, They have bitter re-
collections of the minority
Labour administrations of
1924 and 1929 to 1931. The
Socialists held Government
with Liberal support.

The big question here to-
night was whether the Gov-
ernment would plan to stay
in office until after the April
Budget. —Reuter.

THE BARBADOS



Tourists Are Happy

EAVING Barbados on Thurs-
day by B.W.1LA. were Mr.
H. A. Scott, Export Manager oi
hialston Purina Co., and Mrs. Scott.
This Company are makers of
Purina animal and poultry chows
and Mr. Scott was here for five
days on business.

It was his wife's first visit to
Barbados, but his third. He likes
here immensely and his wife has
also fallen in love with the islana
and finds it a very clean litte
spot. He thinks that it is a very
good thing that prices for accom-
modation etc., have not shot up
to the terrific heights which they
have done in some of the other
West Indian Islands. He felt that
all the Tourists here were happy
as No one was trying to ‘do them
in the eye.” This would mean
¢nat they would probably xeturn
again next year and bring their
friends with them.

Mr. Scott’s visit here he said
coincided with arrival of a new
line of chows, “Checkerettes.”

Not a Bit Sorry

R. and Mrs. Hugh Fraser and
Mrs. Ruby Johnson who have
been spending a holiday at “Sea
Gaze”, Maxwells returned to
Trinidad on Thursday morning
by B.W.1LA. They didn’t seem a
bit disappointed in having missed
Carnival, and in fact seemed very
sorry to be returning home.

Mr. Fraser is an employee cf
Geo. F. Huggins and Co., and
Mrs. Johnson is on the Staff of
the Cable and Wireless Branch
‘n Port-of-Spain.

comparable seats available, gains
and losses were: Labour—gain 10,
lost 50. Conservatives—gain 54,
lost 5. Liberals — gain 1, lost 3
Communists—gain nil, lost 2.
Aggregate votes at 8.30 were
Labour 13,068,844; Conservatives
12,120,347; Liberals 2,558,069.

Shortly before counting was
due to close to-night, Labour had
lost 50 and gained 10 in seats

where comparison could be made

-totalling 434. Conservatives had
gained 55 seats and lost 5. Liber-
als had gained 1 and lost 3.

This, the strangest of all British
electionssknown, produced a crop
of records, Never before was the
poll so high. Never before have
there been so many candidates—
1,368. Never before have so
many deposits—amounting to well
over £60,000—been lost. Never
befoye has the result been in
doubt for so long. And rarely be
fore has a political situation afte
an election presented so many
heartaches to the politicians,

Daytime Count

Mr. Churchill’s Conservatives
added 1 seat to make a total of
103 compared with Labours’ 163,
when the first result in the day-
time count came today. Brigadier
Fitzroy Maclean, who parachuted
to Marshal Tito during the
last war, had a majority of 3096
in a three cornered fight at Lan-
caster. Maclean held the seat for
the Conservatives af the 1945
clection with a majority of 7,722

The next result, another Con-
servative win. brought Labour's
lead down below the “safe” 6(
mark, A Conservative was re-
turned for the “Dormitory” town
of Reigate to the south of London

business in the capital. As th
first of the declarations came in
Prime Minister Clement Attloe
and his wife arrived at Transport
House. the Labour Party heac-
quarters, to wateh the results.

After three recounts, the Con-
servatives threw out the Labou
member for York, winning the
seat by a majority of 77, compared

Chairman of the Liberal Party Executive, at Church

with Labour's 4,072 majority in
1v49, 1t Was the thira Conserva-
tive success in a row.

Lnceouragement

The resuits due to-day were
mainiy from the rural areas
which vary in character trom the
almost entirery agricuiturai tw
strongly Labourite coal mining
aistricts, like South Wales.

The tarming commuimiues are
traditionally Conservative, but im-
proved conditions and wages on
the land during the past five
years have given some encour-
agement to labour.

Mr. Harry Pollitt, Secretary of
ihe Communist Party and one of

the Party's 100 candidates, was
nfeieated in the South Wales
coal mining constituency ol
“ast Rhondda. His wife had

seen defeated yesterday. He was
second in the poll, getting 5,463
votes compared with the Labour
candidate’s 26,645. Last time he

poled 15,761—only 973 behind
Labour. Mr. Phil Parton, one of
the two Communist members of
the last Parliament, has already
lost his seat in last night’s re-
sults.

At noon, Conservatives haa
been successful in five of the
daytime results including Scot-

‘and and the Epsom district near
London, where the world’s most
amous horse race, the Derby, is
run annually. Labour’s first re-
corded success today was in the
big boot manufacturing town oi
Northampton, whose electors gave
the Socialist candidate a slightly
bigger majority than in 1945.
Lyttleton Back

Conservative Sir Oliver Lyittle-
ton, former Minister of Supply,
and a member of Mr. Churchill’s
shadow cabinet, was returned
for the Aldershot division of
Hampshire with a 6,172 majority
over Labour. Conservatives reg-
istered a gain from Labour. The
second of the day in the Mitch-
lam division of Surrey on the
outskirts of London, the Conser-
vative had a majority of 4,826
compared with Labour 7,168 ma-
jority in 1945.

After a third Conservative gain
from Labour today—in the Uni-
versity City of Cambridge—an
official of the Conservative Cen-
tral Office said: “A lead of ten one
way or the other is by no means
beyond the bounds of possibility .

Mr. R. A. Burler, former Edu-
cation Minister and author of the
Conservative Party’s policy docu-
ment “The Right Road For Bri-
tain” held his seat at Saffron
Walden, Essex, by a majority of
3,700 higher than in 1945.

At 1 p.m., the comparison with
the 1945 election showed that La-
bour had had two gains and 24
lasses, and Conservatives 25 gains
and one loss. (Gains and losses can
be calculated in only 484 of the
625 constituencies as the remain-
der have been reorganised geo-
graphically since 1945).

But some Labour candidates
also had increased majorites
well.

Fuel Minister Hugh Caitskeli
nereased his 1945 margin to about
5,000 votes in South Leeds. Hugh
Dalton, former Chancellor of the
Exchequer, improved his advan-
tage.

Thumping Majority

War Minister, Emanuel Shin-
weil, was returned by a thump-
ing majority of 29,395 in the coal
mining district of Easington in
N.E. England.

Conservative George Ward, who
won Worther by a majority of
only 4 in the last election, pushed
up his lead to 4,340 to-day.

When all the returns were re-
ceived today for the London
boroughs, Labour ‘held 31 seats,
and Conservatives 12. The Con-
ervatives gained 3 seats, but the
result was in disappointment to
many of them, They had forecast
that their party would do much;

After taking a degree in medicine at Edinburgh University, he settled down to practise ‘ag

Problems Of Victory

WITH the eyes and ears of the world
fixed on Britain, the British people went
to the polls on Thursday to elect a new
Parliament. In an election campaign con-
ducted in a restrained manner, the two
great parties approached the electorate to
seek their favour.

The sun of the Liberal Party has been
declining for some years and it was never
expected that they would obtain a majority,
while the Communist Party is a negligible
factor in British politics. These two part-
ies could therefore have had no more than
a nuisance value in dividing the fight.



The result gives the Labour Party a
slender majority. Gone are the days when
possessed of one of the greatest majorities
in British Parliamentary history, they
were able to impose their will upon Par-
liament and the country.

With the slender majority thus given to
them, the Labour Party will have to tread
warily. They will face a vigilant, active
and powerful Opposition in which the
towering Churchill will stand ready to
pour scorn upon their ideology and rebuke
them for their mistakes.

In the stormy years that lie ahead the
Labour Party will need all the wisdom
and statecraft at their disposal. But the
Labour Party is one divided amongst
itself, The members vary from good
Liberals to fellow travellers of Commun-
ism. With a party so divided the chances
of the Labour Administration surviving
the next five years without a General
Election seem slender. Indeed, it appears
probable that within the next eighteen
months Britain will again have to make
the choice which on this occasion has been
settled in so inconsequential a manner.

But this much can safely be said that
the Government. will be forced to pay
considerable attention to the Opposition
and the views which they express for now
they are backed by the votes of many more
millions.

British politics will probably witness
therefore, a consolidation of Socialist gains
rather than further great new experiments
of Socialism. Any Government which in
five years can witness the loss of over one
hundred seats may well ponder on the
handwriting on the wall.

But sorely divided as Britain is today
she stands in greater need of unity to
overcomé the pressing difficulties than
ever before in her long history. When the
dust settles and the angers abate, poli-
ticians of all parties must recognise that
their greatest loyalty lies towards their
country and Empire and neither the glitter
of temporary political advantage nor the
manoeuvres of party politics must deflect
them from their great and noble duties.

The responsibilities to be incurred in
the execution of those duties will not only
be to the people of Great Britain. The
political stability of Great Britain is the
standard from which the peoples of Europe,
gradually accepting the ideology of the
right, set their course for the future.
Political stability in Great Britain, too,
means the guiding light for a strong and
powerful United States.

It is impossible to tell whether there
will be any abandoning of the issues
which divide the Tory and the Socialist
Parties. There might be a repetition of
history with a Labour Government
attempting to satisfy all parties in an
endeavour to hold the reins of office or a
renunciation of those promises which
brought them popularity and power. The
latter course will encounter the shoals on
which Socialism will founder if its leaders
are not content with consolidating their
recent gains.

The Fountain Garden Should Be Removed From Trafalgar Square

More About Electricity

By R. E. Smythies M. E. LC.

eee





SINCE my article on electricity
appeared in the Advocate of
February 7th many people have
commented on it to me, all of
them favourably, but some of
them raising questions such as
the following.

Do I realise that the water in
Barbados is very hard and to that
extent not so suitable for what
Engineers call ‘boiler feed’? Tue
answer is that a steam plant would
be of the condensing type, as in
all steamships, the entire ocean
being available here for the pur-
pose. Only small amounts of
water would be required for
making up leakage, and this could
be rainwater from cisterns, or
sea-water distilled in suitable
apparatus, also as in ships.

How about marine Diesels, or
Diesel-Electric locomotives; are
they not reliable? The marme
Diesel runs at much lower speeas
than engines driving electric
generavors, and the ship’s En-
gineers carry out running repairs
while in port. At that, my ex-
perience has been that Diesel-
engined ships have to stop in mid-
ocean for engine adjustments
more often than steam-ships.

The steam locomotive has al-
ways been inefficient because it
cannot be of the condensing type,
also the design is of necessity
modified to keep total weight of

engine and boiler down vo practi-
cal limits, thus increasing tne

amount of maintenance enormous-
ly. The Diesel-Electric engine is
coming into use very rapidly on
railroads in Canada and the US.
because it has definite advantages
in these respects, also because the
fuel weighs less and takes less
space than coal, or alternatively
the engines can go much longer
distances without re-fuelling.
Railway engines do not run con-
tinuously but have plenty of time
in the roundhouses for repairs be-
tween trips.

How about using natural gas in
the boilers? This would be the
obvious thing to do if the gas 1s
available in sufficient quantities.
It could be used in boilers as well
as crude oil from Trinidad, or in
some of the boilers if not avail-
able in sufficient quantity for all
of them. I believe the crude oil
should be considerably cheaper
than Diesel oil in any case.

There would be no need to scrap
the Diesel sets as the larger ones
would be useful for taking peak
loads and as reserve or ‘stand-by’
units. The older sets could prob-
ably. be sold to advantage as they
should have been fully written
off under depreciation account by
now, and the cost of such
machinery has increased con-
siderably since they were bought

Since my previous article was
written I have seen monthly bills
of a commercial concern in Bridge-
town from which it is evident
that the consumer is charged about
16% cents per unit for his lighting
and 3.7 cents for power to drive
his machinery. I cannot think cof
any sound reason for the lighting
rate to be almost 4% times the
power rate. One assumes that
the Electric Company makes a
reasonable profit on the current
sold for power purposes, and if so
the high rate charged for lighting
must be very profitable indeed.

On general principles 1 would
think that current could and
should be sold in Barbados for a
figure much nearer to 3 or 4 cents
than 16 cents or 22 cents.

There would seem to be a strong
case for having the whole system
of rates for electricity gone into
rather thoroughly.

I have not been in England for
20 years and am out of touch with
such matters there, but it is true
that some time ago the whole
business of electric supply there
was chaotic, both financially and
technically. Rates charged varied
over a very wide range indeed,
for no reason other than that some
Companies followed a policy of
selling a lot of current at a relative-
ly low price, and others were con-
tent to sell limited quantities at
very high rates.

Among other things I have
looked up the Electric Light and
Power Act of 1899," and the
Electric Light and Power (Orders
Confirmation) Act of 1907, under
which the Barbados Electric
Supply Co., Ltd. came into exist-
ence and started functioning. The
original franchise covered an area
within 5 miles from the limits of
the City of Bridgetown and was
exclusive for only 42 years, which
will, I believe, expire in a year
or two. The later franchise

seem mmezimin ory henna amneaCe

‘THE BARBADOS

covered the whole island and ex-
tended to 1986 but is not exclusive.

The Company may charge up
to a maximum of 30 cents per
unit for current and I did not
notice any provision for limiting
the rate of profit that may be
made. However, the Acts do give
the Governor-in-Executive-Com-
mittee very wide powers to deal
with a, situation in which the
Company may fail to give reliable
and efficient service, and to regu-
late the Company in various ways,
including even the power to
require it to sell the entire under-
taking to the Governor, at the
fair value of its physical assets
with nothing for goodwill.

It is also laid down that the
system shall be approved by the
Governor and subject to his regu-
lations from time to time. He may
require the Government Electrical
Inspector or other suitable person
to investigate and report him
on accidents in the
he may send an Auditor to ex-
amine all the books, documents
and records of the Company, at
the expense of the Company.

The Governor may require the
Company to remedy any system
not approved by him at any time
that he thinks necessary, and he
has the power to revoke the Order
as to the whole or any part of
the area of supply at any time
and upon such terms as he may
direct, if the Company shall fail
to perform duties imposed upon
it by the Act of 1899 and any
amending Act or Order.

From the above it is evident
that the machinery exists for
effective control of the Company
in the interests of the community
as a whole, and [ feel that many
Barbadians wilh agree that it
would be most opportune at this
time for the powers to be exercis-
ed, at least to the extent of a
thorough, impartial survey of the
situation. By that I mean a com-
plete review of the financial
record of the Company, also the
policy with reference to the type
of equipment installed and the
plans for future development of
the system to take care of steadily
increasing demand for electricity
in the island.

There is some ground for belief
that the rate structure contains
serious inequalities and that the
use of electricity would expand
more rapidly if these were adjust-
ed. This has certainly been the
experience in many places where
the policy has been to encourage
use by setting the rates as low as
possible, consistent with sound
finance and fair treatment of the
shareholders.

I understand that financial con-
trol of the Company rests in Lon-
don, and in such cases the
question comes up automatically
as to whether in the past the
technical policy has been unduly
influenced, to the detriment of
the consumers, by a desire of the
financial gentlemen in London for
larger dividends. I see that in
the legislation of 1907 there is
mention of The Anglo-American
Debenture Corporation Limited, of
London, as well as The Barbados
Electric Supply Co. Ltd., also of
London, and this suggests to the
eye of the experienced business-
man that perhaps the capital
structure is somewhat complicated
by the interposition of what may
be termed financial middlemen,
of doubtful practical benefit, but
adding considerably to the over-
head expense.

I have heard that only a few
shares are held in Barbados,
which seems surprising to a corn-
parative newcomer like myself,
especially in view of the fact that
the demand for conservative in-
vestments here undoubtedly ex-
ceeds the supply. If anyone
doubts this he has only to try to
find a sound investment for some
of his hard-earned savings that
will give him a net return of, say
5% on his capital.

I have also heard that for a
number of years after the Com-
pany was formed no dividends
were paid. That cannot have been
because the rates were too low I
think, so was probably due to
unexpectedly rapid growth of

I have seen and heard refer-

best way to fend off nationalisa-

Company policy and the fairness

SIR,—I quite agree with Mr.
G. F. Sharp in condemning the
Fountain Garden in Trafaigar
Square. Here is a great lake of
cement not artistic, and vaking up
valuable space. The benches are
low and uncomfortable and the
surroundings even unsanitary.

If this were removed it would
be a blessing. Trafalgar Square
does look deserted, and I really
thought Wat some of the buses
such as Belleville, etc, would be
allowed to remain, What the
a want should be considered
irst,

If we must nave gardens, these
should be highlighted, and made
atvractive. There should also be
sanitary conveniences and d@rink-
ing fountains, places of shefter and

phone booths.

Selecting The
West Indies Team
To The Editor, The

mR ’
SIR rl

Advocate,
1 selection of the
land cannot be





ly say that the selectors
y hard to break their
of wilful mistakes and
ven in surprising

themselves, We were led to be-
lieve through the Press, at least
in a statement coming from these
gentlemen, that the team would
be selected on the performances of
the players concerned as there
‘would be ho practise matches
played.

Now let us take a look at the
team and then for questions and
answers,

The certainties pick themselves
for their performances. Now the
irregulars, Hines Johnson. What
has he done? Has he ever played
cricket in any other place than
Jamaica to prove his mettle?
Kenny Trestrail; could he be re-
garded as a better batsman than
Ken Rickards who just bore the
brunt of a mediocre batting team?
Ramadhin; a find I understand.
Will his performance not prove a
flash-in-the-pan, in place of the
proved W. Fergusson? And least

of all L. Peirre. Where does he
come in? Has he not gone lame
after a few overs for the last
couple of years and had to play
in the pavilion? Could he be con-
sidered as good as Frank King

who just howled on perfect

wickets on Kensington and cap-
tured 7 wickets or in a lesser
degree John Trim who took threa
with little assistance from the
wicket?

The selectors have done a
wonderful dis-service to the West
Indies Team, because I feel sure
if Lance Pierre was a _ selector
he would have liked the West
Indies too much to include himself.
So they have done it again and
will do it again.

The Rat Menace
To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—The publicity given by
your paper to the Rat Menace
brings this unpleasant subject from
the seclusion it has too long en-
joyed.

The remarks of the Chief Medi-
cal Officer remind us that rats
are a public heal'h problem. They
are capable of traysmitting murine
typhus, plague, trichinosis and
Weil’s disease. They inhabit sew-
evs and rubbish dumps and then
migrate to warehouses and con
taminate food destined for human
consumption. Not content with
eating from one sack or container
they sample and spoil sack after

sack, ruining up to. ten times the
amount they actually consume, Nor
do they confine their attention to
edible material: furniture, paper
goods, textiles, leather and candles
all suffer from their attacks while
in storage. In their search for
water they have been known to
gnaw through metal pipes, also
through gas pipes and electric

cables, causing leakages, short
circuits and even fires
Their recundity is stupendous

and given good breeding and liv-
ing conditions it is possible for a
single female brown rat to become
the ancestor of 62,056 descendants
in one year.

Although man has for centuries
reluctantly supplied rats with
food, shelter and transport (ships
are notorious rat carriers) science

and patient research have now



stepped into the picture. It only
remains for the public to under-
stand the magnitude of the rat
menace and then to co-operate
intelligently with the C.M.O. and
his officers. Although methods of
destruction have to be varied to
suit local conditions it has been
found possible in England to
achieve 85 00% destruction in a
single treatment. To quote David

-
Gunston, Editor of “Country
Journal”, “The biggest problems
in rat control today are not tech-
nical but social and psychological.
So much depends on the general
and individual attitude towards
these vermin that the only real
difficulty lies in the non-
co-operation of the public. Sci-
entific research continues apace
—one of the latest developments
being the new poison, Antu,

1/200th of an ounce of which will }

kill a brown rat—but all the sci-
ence in the world cannot remove
the present lamentable attitude,
displayed by all sections of the:
community towards rat infesta-
tion. Rats are at first largely
ignored, and when the importance
and danger of the matter is
brought home to people they tend
to assume that rats, whilst evil,
are necessary adjuncts to life;
they are like bad weather, un-
pleasant but unavoidable”
;
“Until public opinion is persuad-
ed that rats in a civilised coun-
try are as outdated as the plague
they once caused, they will re-
with us, a shameful blot}
an unnecessary



main
and evil,”
CECILE WALCOTT.

ground against which to plan fu-
ture development on a
footing.

Dr. Huggins’ first Assistant will
fill in the gaps for those islands
which have no such figures.

The second Assistant is now
making a study of labour condi-
tions and productivity in such
industries as sugar, beginning at
Jamaica but making comparative
studies of other islands. It is
hoped by this means to throw
light on the employment prob-
lems so that future development
can be planned.

The third Acsistant, Mr. Lloyd
Braithwaite is making studies of
social communities. He is a
Trinidadian who graduated from
the London School of Economics
having been trained in social
survey work.

Research

He will begin with three related
studies in Trinidad taking the
problems of family life mainly
East Indian; secondly that of a
family mainly West Indian; and
thirdly a Mixed Community.

In these investigations it will
be seen how far racial, colou. and
traditional obstacles hinder full
co-operation in the communities
in which they exist and how a
health regional approach to their
solution can be made,

The result of all these investi-
gations will be published under
vhe auspices of the Research
Institute as purely scientific data
and in the hope that it will have
great value for social and eco-
nomic progress.

Lapsing from the easy profes-
sional manner into a note of
serious apprehension he said.
“Publication will follow the end
of each investigation and we look
forward to iniormed opinion in
each island to study and débate
them and to weigh the significance
of policy so that future develop-
ment can be based on a greater
knowledge of the facts and their
implications.”

He next suggested that the Ves-

In_ answer to a question from

he would be quite in favour of a
contractor from inside the parish.

Mr. Arnold C. Griffith, a master
carpenter and contractor, said that

M.C.P.,;he was in favour of giving the

work out on contract, but in an-
swer to a question by Mr. E. L.

that in the interest of the parish

In answer to Mr. Brancker, Mr.

Large F-rofit

In roply to a question from Mr.

Of the fast men he had only

With regard to the wickets, he
said that those in Barbados and
British Guiana were similar and
the batsmen usually played to the

the ball jumped more and it had
to be watched more carefully
There was another great differ-

that in the West Indies the swerve
of the ball was lost after the first
three or four overs due to the light
atmosphere, but in England where
the atmosphere was heavy, the
bowler could swerve all day.
Looking back at the 1923 tour,

the present team get a good sum-

their performance when one
takes into consideration the fact
that they were short of practice,
especially match practice and
still managed to give a compara-
tively good account of themselves
under the circumstances.

Their ground fielding on the
whole was superior to that of
Barbados, Bruce Pairaudeau,
Robert Christiani, Leslie Wight,
C. H. Thomas and Rollox being
particularly outstanding.

Bowling Steady

But British Guiana’s greatest) he is one of our most promising

vidual bowling performances of
Berkeley Gaskin, John Trim and
Rollox. This trio commanded the
greatest respect throughout the
tour and were courageous even
in the face of punishment from
batsmen of the calibre of Weekes,
Walcott and Marshal] who had

up their extraordinary ability.

Berkely Gaskin has probably}
never bowled so well in his long
Imtercolonial career. He sent}
down his medium fast inswingers
and deliveries cut back from leg,|
to a consistently good length and
should have had an even greater
measure of success,

He sent down 116 overs during
the tour, by far the greatest in-
dividual amount sent down by
any player in either of the teams
and claimed 6 wickets for 387
runs. His fielding was excep-



much pace in the first game but/
in the Second Test his bowling
was of a high standard

He worked up considerable!
pace in the first innings of the
Second Test and made his deliv-

a good blow for B.G., when he
captured three wickets for 79
runs in 29 overs when it is re-
membered that those were the
wickets of Clyde Walcott (17),
Cc. “Boogles” Williams (0) and

Weekes caught and bowled (82).|

He also proved himself no
he helped to put on 61 for the
tenth wicket to carry the B. G

have given the Selectors a very
bad headache if he were a young-

} Worrell and Walcott,

|| Announcing Fresh Supplies

Clyde Walcott’s contribution te
the tournament is about one of the
most commendable all round per-

ovmance in the history of Bar-
bados’ contribution to Intercoloni2
ricket.

Walcott in addition to
the second place with am avereg

of Weekes” 219.50 in three inning
wen, on to head. the Barbado
bowling averages with & wicket
taken at a cost of 15.50

These were the best figures o
any bowler on either team durin
the tourmament and the highesi
“dividual amount of wickets “ake
curing the tournament.

In addition to this, Walcot
found time to turn in a smart spe)
cf wicket-keeping for his tea:

Skipper John Goddard was on!)

highest score 66 not out. I shoulc

te to see him play a frear gam

iitra careful in my opinion and i
suite capable of playing a more
enerprising game, One appre-
ciates the responsibility of cap
ney but Bradman did not allow
frontline batsman in the makiag| his to cramp his batting style
We expect more runs from ow
popular skipper.

Roy Marshall played one of the
best innings of his career to score
191 and so secure his place as one
of the three opening batsmen for
the 1950 West Indies team Ther«
can be few who saw his display
during the tournament who would
not consider him as eminentl)
suited to have been selected to fill
this role.

Bustamante last night followed

Bustamante thinks that Jones
lost his seat because vhe colonies

With whiskey in his hand and
wearing a black suit for vhe first

ill’s enormous victory with cries:
“Hear, Hear!’ and only Miss
Longbridge’s persuasions could
tear him from the radio, where he
followed the results with “greaver
interest than my own Jamaican

Bustamante attribuves the Con-

following his advice and learning
to speak like Churchill.

SAYS ACHESON

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.
Secretary of State Dean Ache-
son said to-day the Communist
Governments of Eastern Europe
were attempting to cut off their
peoples from the free world and
“deprive them: of all hope of any
other fate than that reserved for

them by their present rulers.”
At his weekly News Conference
Mr. Acheson referred to the recent
break in relations between the
United States and Bulgaria and
the sentencing to long terms of

imprisonment in Hungary of Vog-

Mr. Acheson said the two men
were convicted “on false charges

without a fair trial,” which formed |

part of a general pattern, common

Neck And Neck Race

"7 HE LABOUR PARTY has tonight won the British General Election

LONDON, Feb. 24

with an overall majority— so slim that the nation may have to go to the
polls in a few months or weeks.

The photo-finis: election—most sensational in the nation’s history—
with figures at 8.2) p.m. were: Labour 314, Conservatives 291, Liberals
8, Communist and other Parties nil.

Labour, with 3 4 seats so far in a House of 624 cannot be outvoted
if all its members «re present. Scotland saved the day for Labour:

Attlee Will
Carry On

LONDON, Feb. 24.
Prime Minister Clement
Attlee is likely to carry on the
British Labour Government
however small a majority he
has over other parties, it was
authoritatively learned here
to-night.
He will put his position to
a specially summoned meet-

ing of the British Cabinet
to-morrow morning. As _ his
Party still has a majority,

Mr. Attlee is not called upon
under the Constitution to re-
sign. On present indications
he may face Parliament in the
ordinary way when the new
House of Commons meets for
the first time on March 1,

But the deadlock arising
from the election has plunged
Labour and the Conservatives
into the greatest constitution-
al dilemma in British history
for over a century. There are
still a few results to be declar-
ed and for this and other reas-
ons. some days may elapse
before Mr. Attlee in consulta-
tion with the leaders of the
Cabinet and the chiefs of the
Labour Party makes his final
decision,

Difficulty

Attlee’s personal feeling is
understood to be that if La-
bour has an absolute overall
majority, then there must be
a Labour Government, doubt-
less with the reconstruction
usual after a general election
But if Labour transpired to be
merely the leading part fn
many difficulties of preneiplé
will arise and the Prime Min-
ister will have to decide
whether to inform the King
that he is unable to carry on.
These provisions need Parlia-
mentary sanction and a weak-
ened Government might have
considerable difficulty in ob-
taining it.

It is not yet possible to say
whether Labour would agree
to a working arrangement
with the eight Liberals. They
would support a Labour Gov-
ernment, it is understoood, if
nationalisation were not fur-
ther extended.

Cabinet leaders believe that
the effect of 475 Liberal can-
didates in this election dam-
aged Labour even more than
the Ring Wing Party.

To have a chance of re-
maining in office, Labour will
have to impose iron discipline
upon all its Parliamentary
followers, lest by a single ab-
sentee it should be snap-voted
of office, Labour is uneasy
about “support” from other
parties, They have bitter re-
collections of the minority
Labour administrations of
1924 and 1929 to 1931. The
Socialists held Government
with Liberal support.

The big question here to-
night was whether the Gov-
ernment would plan to stay
in office until after the April
Budget. —Reuter.

Tourists Are Happy

EAVING Barbados on Thurs-

H. A. Scott, Export Manager oi
hialston Purina Co., and Mrs. Scott.
This Company are makers of
Purina animal and poultry chows
and Mr. Scott was here for five
days on business.

It was his wife's first visit to
Barbados, but his third. He likes
here immensely and his wife has
also fallen in love with the islana
and finds it a very clean litte
spot. He thinks that it is a very
good thing that prices for accom-
modation etc., have not shot up
to the terrific heights which they
have done in some of the other
West Indian Islands. He felt that
all the Tourists here were happy
as No one was trying to ‘do them
in the eye.” This would mean
¢nat they would probably xeturn
again next year and bring their
friends with them.

Mr. Scott’s visit here he said
coincided with arrival of a new
line of chows, “Checkerettes.”

comparable seats available, gains
and losses were: Labour—gain 10,
lost 50. Conservatives—gain 54,
lost 5. Liberals — gain 1, lost 3
Communists—gain nil, lost 2.
Aggregate votes at 8.30 were
Labour 13,068,844; Conservatives
12,120,347; Liberals 2,558,069.

Shortly before counting was
due to close to-night, Labour had
lost 50 and gained 10 in seats

where comparison could be made

-totalling 434. Conservatives had
gained 55 seats and lost 5. Liber-
als had gained 1 and lost 3.

This, the strangest of all British
electionssknown, produced a crop
of records, Never before was the
poll so high. Never before have
there been so many candidates—
1,368. Never before have so
many deposits—amounting to well
over £60,000—been lost. Never
befoye has the result been in
doubt for so long. And rarely be
fore has a political situation afte
an election presented so many
heartaches to the politicians,

Daytime Count

Mr. Churchill’s Conservatives
added 1 seat to make a total of
103 compared with Labours’ 163,
when the first result in the day-
time count came today. Brigadier
Fitzroy Maclean, who parachuted
to Marshal Tito during the
last war, had a majority of 3096
in a three cornered fight at Lan-
caster. Maclean held the seat for
the Conservatives af the 1945
clection with a majority of 7,722

The next result, another Con-
servative win. brought Labour's
lead down below the “safe” 6(
mark, A Conservative was re-
turned for the “Dormitory” town
of Reigate to the south of London

business in the capital. As th
first of the declarations came in

and his wife arrived at Transport
House. the Labour Party heac-

After three recounts, the Con-
servatives threw out the Labou

seat by a majority of 77, compared

tive success in a row.

Lnceouragement

The resuits due to-day were
mainiy from the rural areas
which vary in character trom the
almost entirery agricuiturai tw
strongly Labourite coal mining
aistricts, like South Wales.

The tarming commuimiues are
traditionally Conservative, but im-
proved conditions and wages on
the land during the past five
years have given some encour-
agement to labour.

Mr. Harry Pollitt, Secretary of
ihe Communist Party and one of

the Party's 100 candidates, was
nfeieated in the South Wales
coal mining constituency ol
“ast Rhondda. His wife had

seen defeated yesterday. He was
second in the poll, getting 5,463
votes compared with the Labour
candidate’s 26,645. Last time he

poled 15,761—only 973 behind
Labour. Mr. Phil Parton, one of
the two Communist members of
the last Parliament, has already
lost his seat in last night’s re-
sults.

At noon, Conservatives haa
been successful in five of the
daytime results including Scot-

‘and and the Epsom district near
London, where the world’s most
amous horse race, the Derby, is
run annually. Labour’s first re-
corded success today was in the
big boot manufacturing town oi
Northampton, whose electors gave
the Socialist candidate a slightly
bigger majority than in 1945.
Lyttleton Back

Conservative Sir Oliver Lyittle-
ton, former Minister of Supply,
and a member of Mr. Churchill’s
shadow cabinet, was returned
for the Aldershot division of
Hampshire with a 6,172 majority
over Labour. Conservatives reg-
istered a gain from Labour. The
second of the day in the Mitch-
lam division of Surrey on the
outskirts of London, the Conser-
vative had a majority of 4,826
compared with Labour 7,168 ma-
jority in 1945.

After a third Conservative gain
from Labour today—in the Uni-
versity City of Cambridge—an
official of the Conservative Cen-
tral Office said: “A lead of ten one
way or the other is by no means
beyond the bounds of possibility .

Mr. R. A. Burler, former Edu-
cation Minister and author of the
Conservative Party’s policy docu-
ment “The Right Road For Bri-
tain” held his seat at Saffron
Walden, Essex, by a majority of
3,700 higher than in 1945.

At 1 p.m., the comparison with
the 1945 election showed that La-
bour had had two gains and 24
lasses, and Conservatives 25 gains
and one loss. (Gains and losses can
be calculated in only 484 of the
625 constituencies as the remain-
der have been reorganised geo-
graphically since 1945).

But some Labour candidates
also had increased majorites
well.

Fuel Minister Hugh Caitskeli
nereased his 1945 margin to about
5,000 votes in South Leeds. Hugh
Dalton, former Chancellor of the
Exchequer, improved his advan-
tage.

Thumping Majority

War Minister, Emanuel Shin-
weil, was returned by a thump-
ing majority of 29,395 in the coal
mining district of Easington in
N.E. England.

Conservative George Ward, who
won Worther by a majority of
only 4 in the last election, pushed
up his lead to 4,340 to-day.

When all the returns were re-
ceived today for the London
boroughs, Labour ‘held 31 seats,
and Conservatives 12. The Con-
ervatives gained 3 seats, but the
result was in disappointment to
many of them, They had forecast
that their party would do much;
better in London in view of its }
sweeping gains a year ago in the}
London County Council elections. |

The sudden spurt of Conserva- ;
tive success, which reduced !
bour’s lead, included a victory)
for the Irish peer, Earl Winterton, |
known as “Father of the House” ;
He has sat in Parliament contin-

seat at Horsham. He gained

Born in Sheffield in 1718, John Roebuck was the son of @ prosperous manufacturer. Ws
After taking a degree in medicine at Edinburgh University, he settled down to practise ‘ag

in Birmingham. Applied science became his hobby, and the lead chamber was only one of |

many improvements in chemical production which he introduced to Birmingham’s industries.

Iu 1749 he established his own sulphuric acid works near Edinburgh, and later greatly cone a

tributed to Scotland’s wealth by founding the Scottish iron industry. By the time of his
death in 1794, he had been made a Freeman of Edinburgh and a Fellow. of its Royal
Society. Roebuck’'s interests covered an extremely wide sphere, but
his enduring claim to fame rests on the chamber process, which with
the “ contact” process patented in 1831 by another Englishman,
Peregrine Phillips, is still used today to meet industry’s enormous
demands for sulphuric acid.®

Problems Of Victory

WITH the eyes and ears of the world
fixed on Britain, the British people went
to the polls on Thursday to elect a new
Parliament. In an election campaign con-
ducted in a restrained manner, the two
great parties approached the electorate to
seek their favour.

The sun of the Liberal Party has been
declining for some years and it was never
expected that they would obtain a majority,
while the Communist Party is a negligible
factor in British politics. These two part-
ies could therefore have had no more than
a nuisance value in dividing the fight.



The result gives the Labour Party a
slender majority. Gone are the days when
possessed of one of the greatest majorities
in British Parliamentary history, they
were able to impose their will upon Par-
liament and the country.

With the slender majority thus given to
them, the Labour Party will have to tread
warily. They will face a vigilant, active
and powerful Opposition in which the
towering Churchill will stand ready to
pour scorn upon their ideology and rebuke
them for their mistakes.

In the stormy years that lie ahead the
Labour Party will need all the wisdom
and statecraft at their disposal. But the
Labour Party is one divided amongst
itself, The members vary from good
Liberals to fellow travellers of Commun-
ism. With a party so divided the chances
of the Labour Administration surviving
the next five years without a General
Election seem slender. Indeed, it appears
probable that within the next eighteen
months Britain will again have to make
the choice which on this occasion has been
settled in so inconsequential a manner.

But this much can safely be said that
the Government. will be forced to pay
considerable attention to the Opposition
and the views which they express for now
they are backed by the votes of many more
millions.

British politics will probably witness
therefore, a consolidation of Socialist gains
rather than further great new experiments
of Socialism. Any Government which in
five years can witness the loss of over one
hundred seats may well ponder on the
handwriting on the wall.

But sorely divided as Britain is today
she stands in greater need of unity to
overcomé the pressing difficulties than
ever before in her long history. When the
dust settles and the angers abate, poli-
ticians of all parties must recognise that
their greatest loyalty lies towards their
country and Empire and neither the glitter
of temporary political advantage nor the
manoeuvres of party politics must deflect
them from their great and noble duties.

The responsibilities to be incurred in
the execution of those duties will not only
be to the people of Great Britain. The
political stability of Great Britain is the
standard from which the peoples of Europe,
gradually accepting the ideology of the
right, set their course for the future.
Political stability in Great Britain, too,
means the guiding light for a strong and
powerful United States.

It is impossible to tell whether there
will be any abandoning of the issues
which divide the Tory and the Socialist
Parties. There might be a repetition of
history with a Labour Government
attempting to satisfy all parties in an
endeavour to hold the reins of office or a
renunciation of those promises which
brought them popularity and power. The
latter course will encounter the shoals on
which Socialism will founder if its leaders
are not content with consolidating their
recent gains.

The Fountain Garden Should Be Removed From Trafalgar Square

More About Electricity

By R. E. Smythies M. E. LC.

eee





SINCE my article on electricity
appeared in the Advocate of
February 7th many people have
commented on it to me, all of
them favourably, but some of
them raising questions such as
the following.

Do I realise that the water in
Barbados is very hard and to that
extent not so suitable for what
Engineers call ‘boiler feed’? Tue
answer is that a steam plant would
be of the condensing type, as in
all steamships, the entire ocean
being available here for the pur-
pose. Only small amounts of
water would be required for
making up leakage, and this could
be rainwater from cisterns, or
sea-water distilled in suitable
apparatus, also as in ships.

How about marine Diesels, or
Diesel-Electric locomotives; are
they not reliable? The marme
Diesel runs at much lower speeas
than engines driving electric
generavors, and the ship’s En-
gineers carry out running repairs
while in port. At that, my ex-
perience has been that Diesel-
engined ships have to stop in mid-
ocean for engine adjustments
more often than steam-ships.

The steam locomotive has al-
ways been inefficient because it
cannot be of the condensing type,
also the design is of necessity
modified to keep total weight of

engine and boiler down vo practi-
cal limits, thus increasing tne

amount of maintenance enormous-
ly. The Diesel-Electric engine is
coming into use very rapidly on
railroads in Canada and the US.
because it has definite advantages
in these respects, also because the
fuel weighs less and takes less
space than coal, or alternatively
the engines can go much longer
distances without re-fuelling.
Railway engines do not run con-
tinuously but have plenty of time
in the roundhouses for repairs be-
tween trips.

How about using natural gas in
the boilers? This would be the
obvious thing to do if the gas 1s
available in sufficient quantities.
It could be used in boilers as well
as crude oil from Trinidad, or in
some of the boilers if not avail-
able in sufficient quantity for all
of them. I believe the crude oil
should be considerably cheaper
than Diesel oil in any case.

There would be no need to scrap
the Diesel sets as the larger ones
would be useful for taking peak
loads and as reserve or ‘stand-by’
units. The older sets could prob-
ably. be sold to advantage as they
should have been fully written
off under depreciation account by
now, and the cost of such
machinery has increased con-
siderably since they were bought

Since my previous article was
written I have seen monthly bills
of a commercial concern in Bridge-
town from which it is evident
that the consumer is charged about
16% cents per unit for his lighting
and 3.7 cents for power to drive
his machinery. I cannot think cof
any sound reason for the lighting
rate to be almost 4% times the
power rate. One assumes that
the Electric Company makes a
reasonable profit on the current
sold for power purposes, and if so
the high rate charged for lighting
must be very profitable indeed.

On general principles 1 would
think that current could and
should be sold in Barbados for a
figure much nearer to 3 or 4 cents
than 16 cents or 22 cents.

There would seem to be a strong
case for having the whole system
of rates for electricity gone into
rather thoroughly.

I have not been in England for
20 years and am out of touch with
such matters there, but it is true
that some time ago the whole
business of electric supply there
was chaotic, both financially and
technically. Rates charged varied
over a very wide range indeed,
for no reason other than that some
Companies followed a policy of
selling a lot of current at a relative-
ly low price, and others were con-
tent to sell limited quantities at
very high rates.

Among other things I have
looked up the Electric Light and
Power Act of 1899," and the
Electric Light and Power (Orders
Confirmation) Act of 1907, under
which the Barbados Electric
Supply Co., Ltd. came into exist-
ence and started functioning. The
original franchise covered an area
within 5 miles from the limits of
the City of Bridgetown and was
exclusive for only 42 years, which
will, I believe, expire in a year
or two. The later franchise

seem mmezimin ory henna amneaCe

‘THE BARBADOS

covered the whole island and ex-
tended to 1986 but is not exclusive.

The Company may charge up
to a maximum of 30 cents per
unit for current and I did not
notice any provision for limiting
the rate of profit that may be
made. However, the Acts do give
the Governor-in-Executive-Com-
mittee very wide powers to deal
with a, situation in which the
Company may fail to give reliable
and efficient service, and to regu-
late the Company in various ways,
including even the power to
require it to sell the entire under-
taking to the Governor, at the
fair value of its physical assets
with nothing for goodwill.

It is also laid down that the
system shall be approved by the
Governor and subject to his regu-
lations from time to time. He may
require the Government Electrical
Inspector or other suitable person
to investigate and report him
on accidents in the
he may send an Auditor to ex-
amine all the books, documents
and records of the Company, at
the expense of the Company.

The Governor may require the
Company to remedy any system
not approved by him at any time
that he thinks necessary, and he
has the power to revoke the Order
as to the whole or any part of
the area of supply at any time
and upon such terms as he may
direct, if the Company shall fail
to perform duties imposed upon
it by the Act of 1899 and any
amending Act or Order.

From the above it is evident
that the machinery exists for
effective control of the Company
in the interests of the community
as a whole, and [ feel that many
Barbadians wilh agree that it
would be most opportune at this
time for the powers to be exercis-
ed, at least to the extent of a
thorough, impartial survey of the
situation. By that I mean a com-
plete review of the financial
record of the Company, also the
policy with reference to the type
of equipment installed and the
plans for future development of
the system to take care of steadily
increasing demand for electricity
in the island.

There is some ground for belief
that the rate structure contains
serious inequalities and that the
use of electricity would expand
more rapidly if these were adjust-
ed. This has certainly been the
experience in many places where
the policy has been to encourage
use by setting the rates as low as
possible, consistent with sound
finance and fair treatment of the
shareholders.

I understand that financial con-
trol of the Company rests in Lon-
don, and in such cases the
question comes up automatically
as to whether in the past the
technical policy has been unduly
influenced, to the detriment of
the consumers, by a desire of the
financial gentlemen in London for
larger dividends. I see that in
the legislation of 1907 there is
mention of The Anglo-American
Debenture Corporation Limited, of
London, as well as The Barbados
Electric Supply Co. Ltd., also of
London, and this suggests to the
eye of the experienced business-
man that perhaps the capital
structure is somewhat complicated
by the interposition of what may
be termed financial middlemen,
of doubtful practical benefit, but
adding considerably to the over-
head expense.

I have heard that only a few
shares are held in Barbados,
which seems surprising to a corn-
parative newcomer like myself,
especially in view of the fact that
the demand for conservative in-
vestments here undoubtedly ex-
ceeds the supply. If anyone
doubts this he has only to try to
find a sound investment for some
of his hard-earned savings that
will give him a net return of, say
5% on his capital.

I have also heard that for a
number of years after the Com-
pany was formed no dividends
were paid. That cannot have been
because the rates were too low I
think, so was probably due to
unexpectedly rapid growth of

If this were removed it would
be a blessing. Trafalgar Square

Advocate,
1 selection of the

of wilful mistakes and
ven in surprising

themselves, We were led to be-
lieve through the Press, at least
in a statement coming from these
gentlemen, that the team would
be selected on the performances of
the players concerned as there
‘would be ho practise matches
played.

Now let us take a look at the
team and then for questions and
answers,

The certainties pick themselves
for their performances. Now the
irregulars, Hines Johnson. What
has he done? Has he ever played
cricket in any other place than
Jamaica to prove his mettle?
Kenny Trestrail; could he be re-
garded as a better batsman than
Ken Rickards who just bore the
brunt of a mediocre batting team?
Ramadhin; a find I understand.
Will his performance not prove a
flash-in-the-pan, in place of the
proved W. Fergusson? And least

of all L. Peirre. Where does he
come in? Has he not gone lame
after a few overs for the last
couple of years and had to play
in the pavilion? Could he be con-
sidered as good as Frank King

who just howled on perfect

wickets on Kensington and cap-
tured 7 wickets or in a lesser
degree John Trim who took threa
with little assistance from the
wicket?

The selectors have done a
wonderful dis-service to the West
Indies Team, because I feel sure
if Lance Pierre was a _ selector
he would have liked the West
Indies too much to include himself.
So they have done it again and
will do it again.

The Rat Menace
To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—The publicity given by
your paper to the Rat Menace
brings this unpleasant subject from
the seclusion it has too long en-
joyed.

The remarks of the Chief Medi-
cal Officer remind us that rats
are a public heal'h problem. They
are capable of traysmitting murine
typhus, plague, trichinosis and
Weil’s disease. They inhabit sew-
evs and rubbish dumps and then
migrate to warehouses and con
taminate food destined for human
consumption. Not content with
eating from one sack or container
they sample and spoil sack after

sack, ruining up to. ten times the
amount they actually consume, Nor
do they confine their attention to
edible material: furniture, paper
goods, textiles, leather and candles
all suffer from their attacks while
in storage. In their search for
water they have been known to
gnaw through metal pipes, also
through gas pipes and electric

cables, causing leakages, short
circuits and even fires
Their recundity is stupendous

and given good breeding and liv-
ing conditions it is possible for a
single female brown rat to become
the ancestor of 62,056 descendants
in one year.

Although man has for centuries
reluctantly supplied rats with
food, shelter and transport (ships
are notorious rat carriers) science

and patient research have now



stepped into the picture. It only
remains for the public to under-
stand the magnitude of the rat
menace and then to co-operate
intelligently with the C.M.O. and
his officers. Although methods of
destruction have to be varied to
suit local conditions it has been
found possible in England to
achieve 85 00% destruction in a
single treatment. To quote David

-
Gunston, Editor of “Country
Journal”, “The biggest problems
in rat control today are not tech-
nical but social and psychological.
So much depends on the general
and individual attitude towards
these vermin that the only real
difficulty lies in the non-
co-operation of the public. Sci-
entific research continues apace
—one of the latest developments
being the new poison, Antu,

1/200th of an ounce of which will }

kill a brown rat—but all the sci-
ence in the world cannot remove
the present lamentable attitude,
displayed by all sections of the:
community towards rat infesta-
tion. Rats are at first largely
ignored, and when the importance
and danger of the matter is
brought home to people they tend
to assume that rats, whilst evil,
are necessary adjuncts to life;
they are like bad weather, un-
pleasant but unavoidable”
;
“Until public opinion is persuad-
ed that rats in a civilised coun-
try are as outdated as the plague
they once caused, they will re-
with us, a shameful blot}
an unnecessary



main
and evil,”
CECILE WALCOTT.

ground against which to plan fu-
ture development on a
footing.

Dr. Huggins’ first Assistant will
fill in the gaps for those islands
which have no such figures.

The second Assistant is now
making a study of labour condi-
tions and productivity in such
industries as sugar, beginning at
Jamaica but making comparative
studies of other islands. It is
hoped by this means to throw
light on the employment prob-
lems so that future development
can be planned.

The third Acsistant, Mr. Lloyd
Braithwaite is making studies of
social communities. He is a
Trinidadian who graduated from
the London School of Economics
having been trained in social
survey work.

Research

He will begin with three related
studies in Trinidad taking the
problems of family life mainly
East Indian; secondly that of a
family mainly West Indian; and
thirdly a Mixed Community.

In these investigations it will
be seen how far racial, colou. and
traditional obstacles hinder full
co-operation in the communities
in which they exist and how a
health regional approach to their
solution can be made,

The result of all these investi-
gations will be published under
vhe auspices of the Research
Institute as purely scientific data
and in the hope that it will have
great value for social and eco-
nomic progress.

Lapsing from the easy profes-
sional manner into a note of
serious apprehension he said.
“Publication will follow the end
of each investigation and we look
forward to iniormed opinion in
each island to study and débate
them and to weigh the significance
of policy so that future develop-
ment can be based on a greater
knowledge of the facts and their
implications.”

In_ answer to a question from
Mr. Brancker,. Mr. Deane said that
he would be quite in favour of a
contractor from inside the parish.

Mr. Arnold C. Griffith, a master
carpenter and contractor, said that

M.C.P.,;he was in favour of giving the

work out on contract, but in an-
swer to a question by Mr. E. L.

that in the interest of the parish
it would be better for the work

In answer to Mr. Brancker, Mr.

Large F-rofit

In roply to a question from Mr.
Brancker, Haynes said that he

if some of the labour (about
25%) went to workmen of other

Of the fast men he had only

With regard to the wickets, he
said that those in Barbados and
British Guiana were similar and
the batsmen usually played to the
pitch of the ball, but in England
the ball jumped more and it had
to be watched more carefully
There was another great differ-
ence Mr. Tarilton said and it w:
that in the West Indies the swerve
of the ball was lost after the first
three or four overs due to the light
atmosphere, but in England where
the atmosphere was heavy, the
bowler could swerve all day.
Looking back at the 1923 tour,
he thought that it was more a
winter than a summer and should
the present team get a good sum-

give a good account of themselves

in the face of punishment from
batsmen of the calibre of Weekes,

Berkely Gaskin has probably}
never bowled so well in his long
Imtercolonial career. He sent}
down his medium fast inswingers

to a consistently good length and
should have had an even greater
measure of success,

He sent down 116 overs during
the tour, by far the greatest in-

any player in either of the teams

runs. His fielding was excep-

} Worrell and Walcott,

|| Announcing Fresh Supplies

Clyde Walcott’s contribution te
the tournament is about one of the
most commendable all round per-

ovmance in the history of Bar-
bados’ contribution to Intercoloni2
ricket.

Walcott in addition to
the second place with am avereg
146.50 in three innings to
of Weekes” 219.50 in three inning
wen, on to head. the Barbado
bowling averages with & wicket
taken at a cost of 15.50

These were the best figures o
any bowler on either team durin
the tourmament and the highesi
“dividual amount of wickets “ake
curing the tournament.

In addition to this, Walcot
found time to turn in a smart spe)
cf wicket-keeping for his tea:

Skipper John Goddard was on!)
ut once in: three innings with hi
highest score 66 not out. I shoulc

te to see him play a frear gam
with which we have associat

im for the past few years. He i
iitra careful in my opinion and i
suite capable of playing a more
enerprising game, One appre-
ciates the responsibility of cap
ney but Bradman did not allow
frontline batsman in the makiag| his to cramp his batting style
We expect more runs from ow
popular skipper.

Roy Marshall played one of the
best innings of his career to score
191 and so secure his place as one
of the three opening batsmen for
the 1950 West Indies team Ther«
can be few who saw his display
during the tournament who would
not consider him as eminentl)
suited to have been selected to fill
this role.

Of Victory WITH the eyes and ears of the world fixed on Britain, the British people went to the polls on Thursday to elect a new Parliament. In an election campaign conducted in a restrained manner, the two Crekt parties approached the electorate to •icir favour. The sun of the Liberal Party has been declining for some years and it was nevar expected that they would obtain a majority, while the Communist Party is a negligible factor in British politics. These two parties could therefore have had no more than a nuisance value in dividing the fight. The result gives the Labour Party a slender majority.

The reason why was facing me. tlie local Co-op store. This Co-op is the only shop serving Taita s population ol 9.000. It has the only grocery store, the only butcher's, the only vegetable shop, the only beauty salon for the entire district. Again and again residents had asked that ex-Servicemen should be allowed to open other shops. But New Zealand's Socialist Government had sternly turned them down. Here, now there was a gathering of citizens outside the Co-op discussing the latest news A pretty, fair-haired young mother in a blue linen frock which went admirably with her white pram, pointed an angry finger at thc Co-op shop But she spoke with pleasuie "Their monopoly is broken," she said. "They won't be able to boss us around any more Have you heard? Permission has been given to go ahead and open three new private shops next month and more to come.'' Another woman took it up. "There will be competition. We'll have more choice, and they had better look out. We have thrown out the Socialists. We'll throw them out too if they try any funny stuff." READY TO WAIT But the women, like everyone else I have met here, were quite content to accept the left-overs of the old order and wait, confident that the freedom they have been looking forward to is around the corner. There will be no wild spree after the upsurge of anti-Socialist revolt. The general public is so relieved that there WILKINSON & HAYNES CO.. LTD, Sucm*. C. S.

On general lines British Guiana have every right to be proud of their performance when one take* into consideration the fact that they were short of practice, especially match practice and still managed to give a comparatively good account of themselves under the circumstances. Their ground fielding on the to that of to make and it was that Derek Saaly should have been selected as wicket-keeper. Should the West Indies get a good summer like the one the New •inlanders had. there was no reason why the team should not give a good account of themselves. One Criticism MB F. A V WILLIAMS another international player who represented the Wt-sl Indie* durIni *.h< las', tour to England in 1999 said that the only criticism he had to make was the selection Barbadoa, Bruce Pairaudeau. Robert Christian!, Leslie Wight. C. H. Thomas and Rollox being particularly outstanding. ..nd Ramadhin m pagf. Trim and Ferguaaon He failed U. how the sear* could p broughl i D -.adhin .ifter f playing in ne only conlLon he (MM bra to was fjial Ramadhin world water He hi Aid lhat the was a i A \ p IMM I Hood one with i ra y of •aU. ,iut ttic weakest link was in ihe bowling department. Speaking ol BoogieV he said that he would prove the best bowler of the tour Although nol as quick through the air as Doug Wright. England's spin it he was quicker than and should have good season Bowling Steady But British Guiana's greatest pride should ba felt at the individual bowling performances of Berkeley Gaskin, John Trim and Rollox. This trio commanded the greatest respect throughout the tour and were courageous even in the face of punishment from batsmen of the calibre of Weekes, Walcott and Marshall who had cot ditions In their favour to back up their extraordinary ability. B rkely Gaskin has probably never bowled so well in his long Intercolonial career, li down his medium fast lnswingers anu deilvegftfj] cut back from leg. ntarcolo| t^j a consistently good length and al series and i should have hod an even greater measure of success. He sent down 116 overs during the tour, by far the greatest individual amount sent down by any player In either of the teams and claimed 6 wlcketa for 287 runs His lidding was exceptionally good and his all round performs: %  my opinion in the team k .MI wfll make the next West Indies team if he ntiintains this rsq provement in batting tl .vhown.

It is true that hf ga\ a rufftcient indication of his re worth to make his claims for Inclusion In the Wes' Indies team undeniable. He scored 121 with a quartet of chances but his chanceless innings of 5~ in the second Innings of Ihe First Test before he was stumpe. .i, | MTV close decision off Lucas was sufficient to convince us th_ he Is one of our most | young batsmen in the West Indies to-di smart spe. for ( SMppor Jctin Goddard was or..* n three Innings with h. nre M nol out 1 shouli with which we have as-wiat h past few years He I .lira careful In my opinion and i lultt capabl* 1 of playing a more % %  a game.

Williams Improved Frank King did not bowl with the devil he displayed in the 1946 fixtures with the touring M.C.C team.
