Taxes Strangle

WI Rum Trade

(From Our London Correspondent)

The serious effect that taxation

having upon the West Indian
um trade has been emphasised
xy Mr. J. A. Metcalfe, Chairman
f the Rum Importers’ Association
in a letter to the Daily Telegraph.



fe pointed out that the import
luty on rum is £10. Ils, 2d. per
roof gallon, which is some six-

een tirnes the value of the rum.

“Sums thus accruing to the Im-
oerial Exchequer total many times
he total revenue of the colonies
whenee *he rum derives,” said Mr.
Metcalfe. “In short, at a time
vhen the West Indian Colonies
veed every penny they can gain
to strengthen their economic situ-

tion and to raise the standard of
‘iving of their peoples, the British
Government are surely but not
slowly strangling the trade of one
of their main exports.”

He said that the memorandum
recently submitted to the Treasury
by the British Empire Producers’
Organisation pointed out how the
value of rum exports—the most

mportant by-product — h av e
fallen.
And he warned, “heayily re-

duced sale of rum in 1950 to Brit-
ain, the largest export market will
nean a serious loss to those
(B.W.1I.) colonies thus adding to
their economic problems at a time
when they can least afford it.”

He says discontent is mainly de-
rived from vne frustration all Ja-
maicans fee) at the failure of their
own Government to face their
problems of unemployment and
rocketing prices while the Home
Government appears to them
use controls only for its own ad-
vantage.

“My impression in Jamaica
was that the colony has been
written off as a liability and will
be given compiel sclf-govern-
ment at the eariie.. opportunity
accompanied by i.e usual hypo-
critical self-cong:aia/ation on a
noble gesure,” conuinues Mr,
Duechars.

“In realivty Jamaica is a long
way from being capable of self-
governiment, fc she 1s not eco-
nomically self-supporting, nor is
federation a short-term solution.”

He advocates tuat any finaneial
assistance should be administered
by Brivish officials on the'spot and
granted on condition that. their
technical or economic advice must
be followed.

Confirmation

This is a return to the primary
stages of Colonial Governmeni and
when I spoke to Mr. Duechars at
his Bexhill homg he confirme-
verbally his letter to the Tele-
graph.

“Jamaica is struggling to solve
twentieth genvury economic probk-
lems by a nineteenth century sys -
tem of government and adminis-
tration,” hé told me. “Jamaica was
not really ready when aduli
suffrage was granted to the colony
Their politicians had not had
enough experience and were hard-
ly capable of carrying out local
government. Now there is unrest.
Surely iv is not unexpected?”

Mr. Duechars said he felt that
if Jamaica secured the sugar con-
tract with the United Kingdom it.
would do much to solve the un-
employment p of the
island and at the same time would
alleviate the cry for immediate

vo

self-government which -is being»

raised in certain quarters;

He told me that his letter to the
Daily Telegraph had been written
as a challenge to Government
officials over here. “But I doubt
if they will do anything about it,”
he added.

Later when [ referred the letter
to the Colonial Office I was told
“No comment.”

| Careless Women

BRISTOL

Women students
suffer less than men from exam |
worries bevause they realize they

sull have marriage as a second
bet if they fail.
Dr. H. F. Wilson, 40-year-old

medical officer of Bristol Univer-
sity, came to this conclusion af
ter completing a health survey of
2,000 students at the Univers

“A lot of students complain of
such things as pains across the



front ‘of the head and insomnia— |

largely caused by ‘pre-exam
panic’,” he said.

“But the girls are far less sub-
ject to this sort of psychologica:
trouble than the men.

“A man is usually more ambi-
tious. He has to push himself
ahead; more is expected of him.

“The girl student, on the other
hand, probably realizes that if
fails her exams there is marriage
as a fallback.”

But there is one kind of “psy
chological trouble” that girls suf-
fer from as much as the men-—
Love.

“Both sexes come to me regu-
larly when their love affairs get
complicated,” said Wilson.

“We have a chat and perhaps ! |

give them a sedative. Most are
able to carry on with

studies.”—I.N.S.

Education

“THE reported debate in the House of
Assembly on Tuesday on the Education
vote does not reflect any high standard of
discussion. The enormous expenditure on
schools, the neglect of technical education
and the inflation of literates too little train-
ed to think and to work ought to have

ded the House with ammunitiion
enopgh. Instead, a disjointed array of
parochial details was trotted out and no
‘seems to have given thought to what
st be done to save education in Bar-



2M A

~ One of the indices of the standard of the
discussion was the fact that Mr. G. H.
Adams, the Leader of the House could
have.éxpressed the desire to see a Prepara-
tory School erected on the spot where
Harrison College now stands, without
according to the report of his speech, any
thought as to what would happen to the
College itself. There was, however his
hope to pay strict attention to educational
matters in future. It is a worthy reso-
lution.

In an island like Barbados where so
great a portion of the annual revenue is
spefiton education and where the popula-
tion are demanding increased facilities for
learing, the approach to education should
give greater satisfaction to the public and
any debate on education ought to be the
result. of careful thought not galloped
through as part of the Estimates Race.

It is not merely the standard of debate
in the House with which the public will
be concerned, but what will result from
such a laissez-faire approach. It is a matter
which vitally affects every member of the
community.

Barbados has been able to boast of great
educational achievement in the past; sure-
ly this could not have been possible if edu-
cation had been treated as something

“which comes out of a tap or from a
Ppolitician’s promise. Sound and steady
progress, however slow, has brought Bar-
bados the comparative standard which she

‘has reached by effort and there is no
reason why by that same effort, education,
academic and technical, should not con-
tinue to progress.



Refreshments

DURING the discussion on the vote for

refreshments in the House of Assembly
during last week, Mr. F. L. Walcott, Mem-
ber for St. Peter raised the point as to
whether honourable members should not
pay for their refreshments. There was

strong objection and the motion was not
put to the vote.

It is not the first time that such a ques-
tion has been raised although the members
of thé House had not discussed it. In the
past; when service in the House was
regarded as an unpaid duty to be perform-
ed by such members of the community as
had the necessary qualification, it was
eonsidered that refreshments should be the
concern of the Government to whom they
gave free service.

To-day when members of the House are
being paid for their services there is a
large body of opinion subscribing to the
idea that honourable members should pay
for their refreshments. This practice now
obtains in the House of Commons where
there is a buffet and every member can
order such refreshment as he desires on
payment of the regular fixed prices. The
question admits of much argument for and
against andit is as well that it was
brought up by a member of the House
rather than to have come from outside. It
might be well for tiie House to face the
issuiés’ once and for all.

a condition that so obviously calls
for energetic action rather than
a policy of drift? As the Com-
pany is controlled from London
and the major decisions of policy
are presumably made there, is it
desirable that we should continue
to have no say whatever in the
decisions of people who have done
so badly for us in the past?

Other apologists for the Com-
pany have stressed the fact that
new machinery was unobtainable
during the war period, and while
giving full weight to this argu-
ment, it still looks rather like
another red herring to distract at-
tention from the possibility that
the general policy was short-
sighted as much as 20 years or
more ago, both in engineering
matters and in keeping rates so
high that growth of the under-



I do not know of a rule that the

Certainly no intensive efforts
have been made to obtain signa-

printing is not large and has been
underwritten by a small group of
public-spirited people quite vol-
untarily, as a measure of their
concern for a situation that they
feel merits at least a thorough
investigation in the public interest.

‘The Paintings of Arnold Prince
| And Garner Francis

The paintings of Arnold Prince
and Garner Francis gain from
being shown in a small well lit
gallery at the Museum, when this
exhibition is compared with the
former one held in the larger dim
rooms of Queen’s Park. With the
exception of two paintings by
Francis, the canvases are smaller
than at the previous exhibition

and of a more practical size for the
walls of flats and smaller houses.
It is an exhibition of considerable
interest.

“The Gamblers”, seen on page 5,
which Lord Baldwin purchased
from Francis, is a large painting.
It is one of the more ambitious
paintings by Francis, who has
here combined figures with land-
seape. The lighting of the pic-
ture is well directed from the
open door to the figures and
objects in the room. The draw-
ing of the figures is stronger
| than in his other large painting
| “Phe Beggar,” where the figure
in the doorway is too wooden.
In “The Beggar’ too much at-
tention has been paid to detail
rather than to the broader effect
of paint on canvas.



“The Old Tree” is a pleasing
arrangement, the colour is subtle
and it conveys the impression of
sunlight. In “The Mahogany



Tree” the colour is too rich and
strident.

In his seascapes “Anchorage”
and “Sunlight and Boats”, Fran-
cis achieves the effect of sunlit
waters by the fluidity of his col-
our. In both these paintings the
colour is better handled than in
“At Anchor”, where the solidity
of colour fails to convey the
translucence of the sea, here the
design 1s somewhat confused.

Successful

Francis has an undoubted af-
fection for trees, this is well ex-

in the “Old Tree”,

Prince is also successful in his
handling of trees and water, par-
ticularly in “The Pond” and “Rat
Island.” The aerial perspective of
the latter painting is, perhaps

“Under Spanish Needles”

The grades of officers whieh we have vcheduled
are analogous to those of the police service.

It will be seen from the schedules in Appendix
II that in the case of one of the above services, viz.,
postal, we have included certain of the highest
clerical posts. At first sight there might appear, in
this respect, to be some in with the ex-
posts from the other services which







clusion of such

we propose for unification. But im point of fact]

there is no inconsistency. It is only in the field of}
administration that we have found it necessary to
exclude the highest clerical posts for the reasons
given in paragraphs 59 to 62. duties attaching
to the clerical posts in the service which we
have scheduled are not administrative but executive
in character, and the re-organisation of the admin-
— service which we propose will not affect

em.

In the preceding paragraphs of this chapter, we
have set out the services which we recommend for
unification. The Federation of Civil Service Associ-
ations, a body which is strongly in favour of the
unification of the public serv: would go further
than we have felt able to do, and would add to our
list audit, public works, customs and excise, inland
revenue, treasury, labour, survey, government
themist and administrative officers of educational
departments. We have already given in paragraph
29 our reasons for excluding audit, inland
‘evenue, and treasury, and in paragraph 34 the
‘easons which make us think that the immediate
tnifications of the labour and survey servicer would
’e premature. Public works and educational admin-
stration fail, and signally fail, to satisfy one of the
‘riteria which we refer to in paragraph 29, namely,
chat the service should be one in which the qualifi-
vationy for entry and advancement are, broadly
speaking, of an equivalent standard. As regards the
government chemist, this is a post rather than a
service, and can, in our view, best be left to the
operation of voluntary transfer, as and when vacan-
cies occur.

Prima facie, customs and excise, as at present
generally organised, appears to us to. be a service
which could appropriately be unified. But the future
of this service is uncertain, in view of the fact that
the whole question of customg and excise is under’
review by the Customs Union Commission. In these -
circumstances, we do not feel able to make any
recommendation on the question of the unification
of the service. The matter will naturally fall to
2e considered by the Public Service Commission in
the light of such decisions as may be taken on the }
report of that Commission.

CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
In paragraphs 5 to 7 of his draft despatch, the

Services Report—cona

Secretary of State dwells upon the importance of |
ipplying common conditions of service to such!

services as may be recommended for unification. As
1e there points out, such uniformity will enabla
transfers to be easily and conveniently made and
= the most effective use to be made of available
alent.

While we readily subscribe to the principle laid
lown by the Secretary of State, we are constrained
to draw attention to certain difficulties to which
t application will give rise, It will be appreciated
that, in so far as changes may be made in the condi-
tions of service attathing to posts in unified services
only, the existing homogeneity in the matter of con-
jitions of service applicable to the holderg of com-
parable posts in the same colony will pro tanto be
mpaired, Human nature being what it is, any such
discrimination will be resented, and the resentment
is likely to be vocal. With this consideration in
mind, we have been at pains not to suggest uni-
formity for uniformity’s sake, and have limited our
proposals to those conditions of service which, in
our view, uniformity is, if not a necessary ante-
cedent to the introduction of a system of compulsory
transferability as between one colony in the area
ind another, at least a logical corollary to it. We
have accordingly excluded from our consideration
what may be called the minor conditions of
service, such as travelling and subsistence allow-
ances, acting allowances, local leave, and the like.
Such conditions are determinable in large measure
by loeal conditions, and we have not attempted to
iron out any variations there may be, since such
variations offer no obstacle to transferability from |
one colony to another, Indeed, with one exception,
question of uniformity of conditions of service?
Secretary of State’s draft despatch, namely, grad-
ing of posts, salaries, vacation leave, passages and

the age of retirement. The one exception is the im-
portant matter of housing.
GRADINGS AND SALARIES

The first of the conditions of service to be con-
sidered is the grading of pogis and the salaries to
attach to them. Such guidance as the Secretary of
State has to offer on these matters is contained in
the following extract from paragraph 6 of his draft
devpatch: “Common conditions of service would
imply a uniform system of grading of posts, a
common basic salary for comparable posts . .
Differences in conditions and costs of living in the
various colonies could be met by varying local
allowances.” Prima facie, nothing could be more
reasonable than this proposition, but a prolonged
examination has convinced us that it is impracti-
cable. The matter falls to be considered under two
heads, first, the introduction of a uniform system
of grading and common bagic salaries attaching to
the various grades. These are two facts of the same
problem, for unless common basic salaries are an
attainable end, the task—and it would be a formid-
able one—of scrapping the existing systems of
grading, widely different as they are, and replacing
them with a uniform system would serve no useful
purpove, Under the second head comes the question
of local additions to basic salaries to meet differ,
ences in conditions and costs of living.

The intention of paragraph 6 of the draft despatch
appears to be that, a decision having been ‘taken
that a particular service should be unified, a list of
grades should be prepared and each post in the
service of each colony should be allotted to one of
the grades. In order to consider how such an
arrangement could be applied, we take the ser-
vice which probably presents the greatest meas-
ure of homogeneity, viz., the commissioned ranks of
the police, and set out the gradings of that service
in the largest colony, Jamaica, and one of the

smaller colonies, British Honduras.

2 the beauty

Beauty

To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Francis Godson has sub-
mitted many worthy letters to
your correspondence columns, and
this is the first time that I have
found it necessary to offer an
opinion that might not altogether
be in keeping with Mr. Godson’s
views.
_ In qualifying a picture published
wy the “Advocate”, he used the
term “vulgar and indecent”. I
too saw the picture and I must
say that I saw nothing vulgar or
indecent about it. In fact, had I
been asked at the time, I might
have said that it would be diffi-
cult to find another five pairs of
legs that were more healthy in
appearance, more symmetrical in
design. As in any accepted paint-
ing by Peter Paul Rubens or
Maillol, the legs were displayed.
Now no one would think ill of a
person who attractively exhibited
of a woman's face

t To The

understand the bewilderment of a
person who in the course of a mere
sixty years has seen such a trans-

formation.
But Sir, one must move with
the times. Such developments

are as inevitable as death, and
futile are any efforts to retard
them. Yet minds may be made
easier if one considered that God hay
did not intend human beings to be w
clothed, and that they never would
have been if the forbidden fruit
had not been eaten. One might
do worse than consider certain
tribes whose womenfolk to this
day go around with uncovered
breasts, and attract no more
amorous attention from the males
than do the women of the Euro-
pean race. I think Sir, the time
has come when all should realise
that there as much simple
beauty in a shapely leg as there
is in a well-modelled arm

In my humble opinion, it woul

the requisite vessels for manu-

If more money was needed, sup-

could speak with certainty at the
present time.

Mr. Adams (L) replying to the
remarks made about Emigration
said that at this stage, the Govern-
ment could only say, regretfully,
that the prospects were not bright.

That was due to the fact that
employers had no work for
would-be emigrants to do, and in
addition they came up against
Trade Unions who claimed that
the importation of emigrants low-
ered the rate of wages. In some
countries objection was taken on
grounds of race and colour.

Doing All

They were doing all that they
could, Mr. Adams said, and they
were trying to impress the British |
Government with the necessity of |
giving whatever help they could |
on the highest plane.

As far as the Evans Report was !
concerned, he had no official in- |
formation, but he had heard, un-
officially that there was no en-
thusiasm for an immediate impli-
mentation of that Report.

Mr, E. K. Walcott (E) asked
how many Jamaicans had been re-
cruited for work in the U.S.A.
within the last year.

Mr Adams (L) said he could|
not reply accurately on that point,
but he thought he was correct in
saying that Jamaica was having |
the same difficulty as Barbados.
Mr. Walcott (E) expresved the
view that where emigration to the
States was concerned, they should

rather than depend on the Jamai-
can who looked after it at present. |
He had no confidence in the latter, |
who he considered saw after Ja-
maica’s benefit only. \

Dr. Cummins (L) replying to
the remarks about Surinam said
that representatives of that coun-
try were to meet representatives
of the Barbados Government, but
they had not yet turned up.

Mr, Allder (L) said that was a
sign that the Surinam authorities
were still desirous of having Bar-
badians. He would suggest that
since Barbados had the labour to
sell, they should take the lead and
send some person or persons to
negotiate with the Surinam au-

which they were dealing and also
Capital Works, he had seen no.
thing about the Harmony Hal
Road. He would like to kno\
from the hon. member in chargt
of the Department if provisio
for the carrying out of work or
the road was in the Estimates.
Large Vote

Referring to the sum of $10,9£
for bus signs, ete, Mr. J. H
Wilkinson (E) said vhat when he
questioned the large amount \!
$24,000 asked for last year, jit
had been explained by the hon
member in charge of the Depart
nent, that quite a lot of ‘bu
stops, road signs, eta. were re-

and that it was nece
sary to put in a large vote. Tit
same argument, however, cou)
not be made this year. The sw
of over $10,000 did appear to hij
to be an enormous amount t
noney for the purpose. The hof
nember could perhaps give the}
some details as to how that m@
ney was spent.

Travelling

Speaking on the item “Travel
ling Expenses,” Mr. T. O. Brydn
(L) said vhat roller drivers and
the like were given three cents
per mile outside a radius of fou
miles, andshe was suggesting that
instead of that Government f
low the example set by priva
enterprise like the Electric Com
pany and the Telephone Compan
and provide transportation for
these workers. Inc‘dentally, trans-
portation was provided for th
workers of the Waterworks De
partment, which was a Govern
ment concern,

There is a roller driver livin;
in this parish,” said Mr. Bryan
who had to ride to his work n
St. Andrew each day and back
He would suggest that some ei
fort be made to get transporca-
tion for these men.

Mr. O. T. Aiider (L) said thai
he wanted to know if the Gov-
ernment were going to make the
office of Tenantry Roads Engin-
eer permanent.

Many motorists were finding it
difficult to drive at night he said,
because of the difficulty of seeing
the stud signs. Some of them hac
complained that these signs wer:
too high. There were some dan-|}
gerous corners too which did not|
have any indicating studs. He}
felt these should be looked after. |

Mr, F. L. Walcott. (LL) said|
in replying to the comments, that
in the first place he would point!
out that the plan for Harmony
Hall. was still up for considera-
tion. The road was good in itself
but there was some difficulty
there about the drainage. An-!
other thing was that before the
Government embarked upon a
plan to go there and spend a con-
siderable amount of money, they |
would have to take into consid- |
eration the amount of money that
would have to be spent on other
roads in greater need. Something
would probably be done to pre- |
vent the water flooding there, but |
the curve would be eradicated in
process of time.





thorities.
Under Head 32—Department of

Highways and Transport, Mr.
Brancker (C) spoke fist. He
queried the appointment of
Parish Roads Engineer.
No Explanation
Referring to the item “Inci-

denvals,” Mr. Brancker said that
the vote of $1,200 was rather high
in the absence of any explana-
tion, as there was no note on it,
Apparently the sum was the same
as last year but he could not re-
member the explanation given
then, -

On the item of “Marking and
maintenance of traffic lines and
signs, road signs and bus stops,”
Mr. Brancker said that there were



mai 2 ;

“The Gamblers,” —Story on page 4.





certain districts in which ths
Transport Board had promised to
put stop signs but they had not
yet gone up. This caused a great
deal of hardship and inconveni
ence io the drivers of "buses who
were required to stop every now
and then for persons along the
particular route. He would sug-
gest to the Government member
| partment of Highways and Trans
} port to look into this matter.

On the item “Unestablished
| Staff”, he said that he understood
| that some time ago certain check-
}ers had sought an interview with
| the Director of the Department on
| the question of being paid on :

monthly basis instead of on

| weekly basis, These checkers de-
' sired this change and he thought
|this was a matter which should
also be taken up by the hon
member in charge of the Depart-
ment

He thought that the im ol

a

there was a Works Committee
sitting on the question of reor-
sanisation, and therefore th:
natter of the post was for the
sovernor-in-Executive Commit-
tee to decide on at the appropri-
ate time.

Of the item “Incidentals,” Mr,
Valeott said that where ther
vas the enormous sum of well

over $500,000 to be expended
inder the Head, the amount of
ittle over $1,000 for incidentals

vas a very small portion of this
*xpenditure.

As regards the matter of trans
ortation

for roller workers etc
he considered that that was a
iatter for examination.

On the matter of the “Unestab
ished Staff” he was hop'ng that

vhen the Government took
.ead_ in connection with thesc
natters, it would become the

tead to private employers.
Deaths

Mr, F.C,
o know how many deaths wer
o take place along the Harmon;
dal! Road area before somethin;
was done. The honourable mem-
over had tried to say that th
irainage was the cause. Thai

that was left out purposely be. |

ause some major capital work
was ta be done to make the roac
1 proper road. There was no
ioubt that the road was the mai
vne in the island, It was th:

more traffic travelled along i

.Qan any other road in the islano |

He never expected the hon

ourable member to tell him that |

ine work was to be postpone
or a future date. He had con

sulted the Department of Hign- |
vays and Transport and they hac |

old him that a scheme had bee:
put up and the Estimates Com

further consideration of the Heaa |

until he got a better reply.

Mr. F. L. Waleott (L) said in
reply that not only
Hall Road but a lot

of other

Harmony |

things had been considered by the |

Estimates Committee that woul
not be able to be dealt with
this year,
the hon. member was saying but
he must bear in mind that the
repairs and reconstruction of a
road was a big one. The hon.
member would admit that there
were other curves that the Gov-
ernment had undertaken to do,
have done, and were still doing,
and he should not be so extrava-
gant to say that because this thing
was not done this year it would

never be done. He would ask
the hon. member to possess his
soul in patience and this roac

would be done. He would give
him the assurance that what the
danger now was, was the swamp-
ing of the road,

Accidents

There was no question of bring.
ing in the question of accident.
because it was kndéwn there hac
been fatal accidents on many
main roads,

If people were more careful in
their driving there would be fewer
accidents. However, this road hac
one of the many dangerous curves
in the island and would be at-
tended to in due time,

discussion, Mr. E. K, Walcott (Ek)
questiqned the House as_ to
whether the Housing Board hac
the authority to decide the issues
of the Pine or Bay estates.

He said that the Housing Board
was one of those Boards which did
not err through their haste. They
had to be pushed from every
quarter to try and get them to do
something. On one occasion the
House had had to vote money
for them when they had not even
asked for it. They had had to
uifge the Housing Board when
the money had been voted to try
and get ahead and do something.
The Board was an emancipated
Board and not a Government
Board.

Mr. Reece (E) was of a similar
opinion as tothe authority of the
Housing Board on such a point.

Amenities

Dr. Cummins (L) observed that
he was not of the legal trend and
he could not pursue the validity
of their argument. The Govern-
however, had set up 2a
Board to acquire land and move
houses. Streets were necessary
amenities to any community and
none could argue that lighting
was not of the utmost importance
| when streets were made.

Mr. Cox (L) said it seemed to
him as though the Honourable
member was not against the
voting of the money for light-
ing, but only against the legal
point of authority.

As the position was, he said,
they thought that by then the
Housing Board would have been
non-existence. They had passed
a Bill to transfer the powers of
the Board to the Government.
Until the passing of that Bill the
Housing Board was asked to go
into the question of administer-
ing at least the Bay Estate es-
pecially after the disaster of the
August floods.

Appropriate Department

The Board had been asked to
make recommendations and at
the same time deal with the ques-
tion of chattel, rent and tax
such other things. As far as he
knew the Housing Board was
the appropriate department to

amount of care requisite, the

The head was passed.

Head 37, Peasants’ Loan Bank,
was passed without any con-
troversial points being raised.

The next head, Old Age Pen-
sions, was strongly criticised by
Mr. E. D. Mottley (E). He stress-
ed that the age fur old age pen-
sion should be 65.

Mr. Mottley (E) said that dis-
regardless of anything he would
express his opinion strongly on
that matter.

He still contended as he had
always contended and would
ever contend, that it woul
cost much money, but none
could for a moment think
furthermore suggest that it
would be money ill-spent.

The age that people should

be given old age pension, he

held, should be 65.

I-Alii. tOLK IIAHBADOS ADVOCATE SU^ADOsSADVtK^TE Thursday. 16th March. I95(P Kdurafinn THE reported debate in the House of Assembly on Tuesday on the Education vote does not reflect any high standard of discussion. The enormous expenditure on schools, the neglect of technical education and the inflation of literates too little trained to think and to work ought to have provided the House with ammunition enough. Instead, a disjointed array of parochial details was trotted out and no one seems to have given thought to what must be done to save education in Barbados. One of the indices of the standard of the discussion was the fact that Mr. G. H. Adams, the Leader of the House could have expressed the desire to see a Preparatory School erected on the spot where Harrison College now stands, without according to the report of his speech, any thought as to what would happen to the College itself. There was, however his hap* to pay strict attention to educational matters in future. It is a worthy resolution. In an island like Barbados where so great a portion of the annual revenue is spent on education and where the population are demanding increased facilities for learning, the approach to education should give greater satisfaction to the public and any debate on education ought to be the remit of careful thought not galloped through as part of the Estimates Race. It is not merely the standard of debate in the House with which the public will be concerned, but what will result from such a laissez-faire approach. It is a matter which vitally affects every member of the community. Barbados has been able to boast of great educational achievement in the pasl, ly this could not have been possible if education had been treated as something which comes out of a tap or from a politician's promise. Sound and steady progress, however slow, has brought Barbados the comparative standard which she has reached by effort and there is no reason why by that same effort, education, academic and technical, should not continue to progress. Refreshment* DURING the discussion on the vote for refreshments in the House of Assembly during last week, Mr, F. IWalcott. ber for St I whether bom ... i efflben should not pay for tin strong objection and u pUl l<> 111! It is not the Aral ttma I; at auch I tioti has be.i of the House had nut dlTlltml It In tht past when service in the House was regarded as an unpaid duty to be Dtt ; ed by such memht had the necessary qualification, it was %  iered that rt-i: nould be the concern of the Government to whom they gave free service. To-day when members of the House are being paid for their services then large body of opinion subscribing to tinidea that honourable members should pay for their refreshments. This practice now obtains in the House of Commons where there is a buffet and every member can order such refreshment as hi payment of the regular lixed prices The question admits ..f much argument for and against and it is as well that it was brought up by a member of the House i-ther than to have come from outside It might be well for toe House to fate the i once and for all. Electrical Facts Wanted y K. §;. S.i.Tihir* M. E". I. f. The controversy over our suppi}; of electricity is notable for the number of red herrings that appear In the path of discussion. In the "Advocate" of March 12th friend "Sagittarius" adds his quota in referring to what he describes as. "a demand for blood" and "punitive action" against the Company, and (or good measure throws in his own demand that the Company be granted doldollars with which to buy equipment. Surely by this time the Company could purchase new and better machines in Britain with which to provide more and cheaper electricity for us. So why the request for dollars now? I understand that during the war period the Government offered the Company both opportunity and dollars to buy American machinery, but the offer was refused for what no doubt seemed adequate reasons at the time, such as fear 01 unpblc to obtain spare parts later on. Perhaps this difliculty was more imagined than real; c ert ai n! ) the actual experience could hardly have been more sad than the c\enls of the past two months, jnd might have been better. Nothing is to be gained by hashing over this old argument now as it will generate no kilowatts for us, and H easy to be wise after the I The essential thing is to ascertain what is wrong with uui vU-< Brical undertaking, if anything, and .,M best be done to correct a situation that will do (U harm to the island if allowed to continue. The public should be entitled to know the real facts wiihout being considered unduly inquisitive It is interesting to see that "Sagittarius" himself describes the present plant of the Company engineering burlesque", while otherwise tppNlfaefl a* an %  poloctlt for the Company and a critic Of the past policy of Government to* This point needs clearing up and DOUld be luMUted in enquiring if it is true, and, if the answer is ton the affirmative, what can and will be done to improve a coodiUoo that so obviously calls for energetic action rather than a policy of drift? As the Company is controlled from London and the major decisions U policy ly made theie. deiirablc that we should continue to have no say whatever In the of people whe so badly for us in the past? Other apologists for the Company have stressed the new machinery was unobtainable during the war period, i giving full weight to this argument, it still looks rather like another red herring to dl tcnlion from the postu the general poll more ago. both in < ,:rowth of the undertaking was retarded. Perhaps the Government of the day should share responsibility for whatever was done or left undone; impartial enquiry could bring out the facts, not with the idea of assessing blame now. but with the very definite deiire to bring about much-needed improvement for the future. It is also said that the Company pays only a dividend of 5%, which is borne out by the balance sheet. The figures given in a recent issue of the "Advocate" also show, ^Provision for Taxes tl3.500". and this seems to justify enquiry as to how much the rates we pay are Increased by taxation of the Company paid in England and in Barbados, or in other words duplicate taxation. It must also be borne in mind th..t it is quite impossible to judge the proilts made by any business concern merely from the dividends paid to shareholders. Some Companies follow a policy of leaving substantial sums from pronts in the business year by year to provide for expansion, and this may be only prudent management. It does also have the effect of Increasing the value of the shares considerably however, and in the long run the shareholder benefits by what are called 'capital gains' which are not taxed in England I relieve, though they are taxed in the United States along with income. The point is that tne real profits of any Company can only be calculated after a close study of successive balance sheets and other records for a period of years. say at least 10 and better still 15 years. In such a case. It is also interesting to note that "Sagittarius" has decided that the Petition will fall, although It is addressed to His Excellency and the decision as to its fate in his hands, so that in the meantime none of us should comment on what It will be. The number of signatures may prove larger than anticipated, and in any ca.ie I do not know of a rule that the number must necessarily be very large in order to receive serious consideration. Certainly no intensive eilorti h;.ve been made to obtain signatures. The expense incurred m printing is not large and has been underwritten by a small group of public-spirited people quite voluntarily, as a measure of their concern fur a situation that they feel merits at least a thorough investigation in the public interest. 1 accept no payment for these articles because 1 want to keep st.iitly on the basis of having no axe to grind, even a very small one. It seems reasonable to suppose that the fate of such a o would depend on the soundness or otherwise of the requests made, rather than the number of lagMtiirej. With some propaganda one could probably obtain many riptartu r es to a petition to have green cheese imported from the moon, especially when the supply of th.it comnodity from mundane sources is as scarce and costly as at present. To sum up, may I again emphasise that this movement to request enquiry into the matter of our electricity supply is absolutely non-political and withou ulterior motives of any sort? The group of people behind the movement feel strongly that it woulo. be very much in the public interest to seek answers to questions such as the following: t. Why are the rates in Barbados so much higher than in Trinidad, and B-G? 2. Have pronts of the Company over the past 10 years or sc been reasonable for such an undertaking, or deflnitelj higher than is reasonable? 3. Is it true that the past policj in engineering matters leavemuch to be desired? 4. If the answer to No. 3 i affirmative, what can and wn be done to correct the situa tlon as soon as possible? 5. How long will it be 'befon consumers can be assure* that the service is reliabk and with adequate reserve: to provide for contingency other than hurricanes, earthquakes or other extreme conditions? 6. Is It true that the present policy of the Company is tr refuse to give a definite under taking to industries teettfni power, that they will obtair it when required in the near future? If so, is this on instruction* from the Head Orftce ii. London, and how long wil. the situation continue? 7. To what extent Is the general policy in engineering anc financial matters settled it< and dictated from, the Londoi. Office? 8. In the past, has the Lond.ii Office sometimes over-run. the judgment of Compaq Officials in Barbados, or refused to grant requests (03 the provision of cquipmen 1 considered by the latter to be necessary for efficicn operation of the undertaking' It is felt that these question: are pertinent and the answers oi great Importance to everyone h Barbados, and not only to consumers of electricity. Those behinj the movement are certainly no', seeking scapegoat: and have no desire to penalise anyone, but feel strongly t h a energetic steps should be taken ti end 'he present deplorable situa lion of the electric supply In the Island. Perhaps a prime need i: to strengthen the hands of Un local officials in dealing with their principals in London. But In an> case, in the meantime, please. HO more red herrings!!

Unification Of Public Services Report-c^ PRISONS WE FEEL that the unification of the prisons service does not call for any spec'al explanation. The grades of officer? which we have scheduled are analogous to those of the police service. It will be seen from the schedules in Appendix II that In the case of one of the above services, viz.. postal, we have included certain of the highest lerical posts. At first sight there might appear, in this respect, to be iv>me Inconsistency with the exiusion of such posts from the other services which ve propoiv for unification. But in point of fact thero is no inconsirtency. It is only in the Meld of administration that we have found it necessary to exclude the highest clerical poets for the reasons given in paragraphs 59 to 62. The duties attaching to the clerical posts in the postal service which we have scheduled are not administrative but executive n character, and the re-organisation of the administrative service which we propose will not affect them. In the preceding paragraphs of this chapter, we I out the services which we recommend for unification. The Federation of Civil Service Associations, a body which is strongly in favour of the indication of the public services, would go further -nan we have felt able to do. and would add to our audit, public works, customs and excise, inland revenue, treasury, labour, survey, government hemist and administrative officers of educational lepartments. We have already given in paragraph 19 our reasons for excluding audit, inland evUlN, and treasury, and in paragraph 34 the easons which make us think that the immediate :niflcations of the labour and survey service!.' would • premature. Public works and educational adminBtntton fail, and signally fail, to satisfy one of the riteria which wo refer to in paragraph 29. namely, hat 'he service should be one in which the qualifiation.' for entry and advancement are. broadly 'peaking, of an equivalent standard. As regards the *ovemment chemist, this is a port rather than a in, in our view, best be left to the n of voluntary transfer, as and when vacancies occur. Primn facie, customs and excise, as at present generally organised, appears to m* to. be a service which could appropriately be unified. But the futur? jf this service is uncertain. In view of the fact that he whole question of custorm* and excise is under review by the Customs Union Commission. In these circumstance!', we do not feel able to make any (commendation on the question of the unification f the service. The matter will naturally fall to :v considered by the Public Service Commission in "he light of such decision!.* as may be taken on the report of that Commission. CONDITIONS OF SERVICE In paragraphs 5 to 7 of nil draft despatch, the Secretary of State dwells upon the importance of q (dying common condition;' of service to such be recommended for unification. As %  e there points out, such uniformity will enable*, transfers to be iMifljr and conveniently made and illow the most effective use to be made of available alent. While we readily subscribe to the principle laid town by the Secretary of State, we are constrained 'o draw attention to certain difficulties to which t.' application will give rise. It will be appreciated that, in so far as changes may be made in the conditions of service attaching to posts in unified services inly, the existing homogeneity in the matter of coniitions of service applicable to the holden* of comparable posts in the same colony will pro tan to be mpaired. Human nature being what It is. any such Hscrimination will be re-*ented, and the resentment is likely to be vocal. With this consideration in mind, we have been at pains not to suggest uniformity for uniformity's i*ake, and have limited our proposals to those conditions of service which, in OUT view, uniformity is, if not a necesrary antecedent to the introduction of a system of compulsory transferability as between one colony in the area md another, at least a logical corollary to it. We have accordingly excluded from our consideration .vhat may be called the minor conditions of service, such as travelling and subsistence allowances, acting allowances local leave, and the like Such conditions are detei minablc i" large measure by local lumntions. and we have not attempted to iron out sny variations there may be, since inn varlatlons offer no obstacle to transferability from ine colony to another. Indeed, with one exception, no occasion to extend our examination of tho question •( uniformity of conditions of service in paragraph 6 of the Secretary of State''* draft despatch, namely, grading of posts, salaries, vacation leave, passages and • including under the last mentioned head the age of retirement. The one exception is the important matter of housing. ( %  HIDINGS AND SALARIES The first of the conditions of service to be cooMilerod is the grading of poi'ts and the MUU attach to them. Such guidance as the Secretary of State has to offer on these matters is contained li the following extract from paragraph 6 of his draft "Common condition? of service would imply a uniform system of grading of posts, common basic salary for comparable posts . Difference in conditions and costs of living in the various colonies could be met by varying local .dluwunccs." Prima facie, nothing could be more reasonable than this proposition, but a prolonged examination has convinced us that it LImpracticable. The matter (alls to be considered under two Brat, the introduction of a uniform system rig and common baric salaries attaching to •in various grades. These are two facts of the same problem, for unless common basic salarier are an %  ttalnabw end. the task—and it would be a formidable one—of scrapping the existing syims of grading, widely different as they are. and replacing rfth a uniform system would serve no useful Under the second head come* the question if local additions to basic salaries to meet differences in conditions and costs of living. Tho intention of paragraph 6 of the draft dei-patch ppcars to be that, a decision having been taken thai • particular service should be unified, a list of grades should be prepared and each post in the service of each colony should be allotted to one of the grades. In order to consider how such an arrangement could be applied, we take the service which probably presents the greatest measure nf homogeneity, viz., the commissioned ranks of the police, and set out the grading.* of that service in the largest colony, Jamaica, and one of the smaller colonies, British Honduras. g**Mtt*.*A.rs. e KITCHEN NEEDS! se/ect from this ,de range WOOD AND COAL STOVES— Nos, 7 .u i OIL STOVES COAL Km PHESSURE COOKERS "" 5 SAUCEPANS—Iron, Enamel and Aluminum DOUBLE BOILERS NEGRO POTS—2. 3. and 4 gallon DANISH POTS—1, 2. and 3 gallon FRY PANS—II" and 12" and FRENCH ntlrae COFFEE MILLS—Nos. 2 and 3 ^ MEAT MINCERS—Nos.

Taxes Strangle

WI Rum Trade

(From Our London Correspondent)

The serious effect that taxation

having upon the West Indian
um trade has been emphasised
xy Mr. J. A. Metcalfe, Chairman
f the Rum Importers’ Association
in a letter to the Daily Telegraph.



fe pointed out that the import
luty on rum is £10. Ils, 2d. per
roof gallon, which is some six-

een tirnes the value of the rum.

“Sums thus accruing to the Im-
oerial Exchequer total many times
he total revenue of the colonies
whenee *he rum derives,” said Mr.
Metcalfe. “In short, at a time
vhen the West Indian Colonies
veed every penny they can gain
to strengthen their economic situ-

tion and to raise the standard of
‘iving of their peoples, the British
Government are surely but not
slowly strangling the trade of one
of their main exports.”

He said that the memorandum
recently submitted to the Treasury
by the British Empire Producers’
Organisation pointed out how the
value of rum exports—the most

mportant by-product — h av e
fallen.
And he warned, “heayily re-

duced sale of rum in 1950 to Brit-
ain, the largest export market will
nean a serious loss to those
(B.W.1I.) colonies thus adding to
their economic problems at a time
when they can least afford it.”

He says discontent is mainly de-
rived from vne frustration all Ja-
maicans fee) at the failure of their
own Government to face their
problems of unemployment and
rocketing prices while the Home
Government appears to them
use controls only for its own ad-
vantage.

“My impression in Jamaica
was that the colony has been
written off as a liability and will
be given compiel sclf-govern-
ment at the eariie.. opportunity
accompanied by i.e usual hypo-
critical self-cong:aia/ation on a
noble gesure,” conuinues Mr,
Duechars.

“In realivty Jamaica is a long
way from being capable of self-
governiment, fc she 1s not eco-
nomically self-supporting, nor is
federation a short-term solution.”

He advocates tuat any finaneial
assistance should be administered
by Brivish officials on the'spot and
granted on condition that. their
technical or economic advice must
be followed.

Confirmation

This is a return to the primary
stages of Colonial Governmeni and
when I spoke to Mr. Duechars at
his Bexhill homg he confirme-
verbally his letter to the Tele-
graph.

“Jamaica is struggling to solve
twentieth genvury economic probk-
lems by a nineteenth century sys -
tem of government and adminis-
tration,” hé told me. “Jamaica was
not really ready when aduli
suffrage was granted to the colony
Their politicians had not had
enough experience and were hard-
ly capable of carrying out local
government. Now there is unrest.
Surely iv is not unexpected?”

Mr. Duechars said he felt that
if Jamaica secured the sugar con-
tract with the United Kingdom it.
would do much to solve the un-
employment p of the
island and at the same time would
alleviate the cry for immediate

vo

self-government which -is being»

raised in certain quarters;

He told me that his letter to the
Daily Telegraph had been written
as a challenge to Government
officials over here. “But I doubt
if they will do anything about it,”
he added.

Later when [ referred the letter
to the Colonial Office I was told
“No comment.”

| Careless Women

BRISTOL

Women students
suffer less than men from exam |
worries bevause they realize they

sull have marriage as a second
bet if they fail.
Dr. H. F. Wilson, 40-year-old

medical officer of Bristol Univer-
sity, came to this conclusion af
ter completing a health survey of
2,000 students at the Univers

“A lot of students complain of
such things as pains across the



front ‘of the head and insomnia— |

largely caused by ‘pre-exam
panic’,” he said.

“But the girls are far less sub-
ject to this sort of psychologica:
trouble than the men.

“A man is usually more ambi-
tious. He has to push himself
ahead; more is expected of him.

“The girl student, on the other
hand, probably realizes that if
fails her exams there is marriage
as a fallback.”

But there is one kind of “psy
chological trouble” that girls suf-
fer from as much as the men-—
Love.

“Both sexes come to me regu-
larly when their love affairs get
complicated,” said Wilson.

“We have a chat and perhaps ! |

give them a sedative. Most are
able to carry on with

studies.”—I.N.S.

Education

“THE reported debate in the House of
Assembly on Tuesday on the Education
vote does not reflect any high standard of
discussion. The enormous expenditure on
schools, the neglect of technical education
and the inflation of literates too little train-
ed to think and to work ought to have

ded the House with ammunitiion
enopgh. Instead, a disjointed array of
parochial details was trotted out and no
‘seems to have given thought to what
st be done to save education in Bar-



2M A

~ One of the indices of the standard of the
discussion was the fact that Mr. G. H.
Adams, the Leader of the House could
have.éxpressed the desire to see a Prepara-
tory School erected on the spot where
Harrison College now stands, without
according to the report of his speech, any
thought as to what would happen to the
College itself. There was, however his
hope to pay strict attention to educational
matters in future. It is a worthy reso-
lution.

In an island like Barbados where so
great a portion of the annual revenue is
spefiton education and where the popula-
tion are demanding increased facilities for
learing, the approach to education should
give greater satisfaction to the public and
any debate on education ought to be the
result. of careful thought not galloped
through as part of the Estimates Race.

It is not merely the standard of debate
in the House with which the public will
be concerned, but what will result from
such a laissez-faire approach. It is a matter
which vitally affects every member of the
community.

Barbados has been able to boast of great
educational achievement in the past; sure-
ly this could not have been possible if edu-
cation had been treated as something

“which comes out of a tap or from a
Ppolitician’s promise. Sound and steady
progress, however slow, has brought Bar-
bados the comparative standard which she

‘has reached by effort and there is no
reason why by that same effort, education,
academic and technical, should not con-
tinue to progress.



Refreshments

DURING the discussion on the vote for

refreshments in the House of Assembly
during last week, Mr. F. L. Walcott, Mem-
ber for St. Peter raised the point as to
whether honourable members should not
pay for their refreshments. There was

strong objection and the motion was not
put to the vote.

It is not the first time that such a ques-
tion has been raised although the members
of thé House had not discussed it. In the
past; when service in the House was
regarded as an unpaid duty to be perform-
ed by such members of the community as
had the necessary qualification, it was
eonsidered that refreshments should be the
concern of the Government to whom they
gave free service.

To-day when members of the House are
being paid for their services there is a
large body of opinion subscribing to the
idea that honourable members should pay
for their refreshments. This practice now
obtains in the House of Commons where
there is a buffet and every member can
order such refreshment as he desires on
payment of the regular fixed prices. The
question admits of much argument for and
against andit is as well that it was
brought up by a member of the House
rather than to have come from outside. It
might be well for tiie House to face the
issuiés’ once and for all.

underwritten by a small group of

untarily, as a measure of their

‘The Paintings of Arnold Prince
| And Garner Francis

The paintings of Arnold Prince
and Garner Francis gain from
being shown in a small well lit
gallery at the Museum, when this
exhibition is compared with the
former one held in the larger dim
rooms of Queen’s Park. With the
exception of two paintings by
Francis, the canvases are smaller
than at the previous exhibition

and of a more practical size for the
walls of flats and smaller houses.
It is an exhibition of considerable
interest.

“The Gamblers”, seen on page 5,
which Lord Baldwin purchased
from Francis, is a large painting.
It is one of the more ambitious
paintings by Francis, who has
here combined figures with land-
seape. The lighting of the pic-
ture is well directed from the
open door to the figures and
objects in the room. The draw-
ing of the figures is stronger
| than in his other large painting
| “Phe Beggar,” where the figure
in the doorway is too wooden.
In “The Beggar’ too much at-
tention has been paid to detail
rather than to the broader effect
of paint on canvas.



“The Old Tree” is a pleasing
arrangement, the colour is subtle
and it conveys the impression of
sunlight. In “The Mahogany



Tree” the colour is too rich and
strident.

In his seascapes “Anchorage”
and “Sunlight and Boats”, Fran-
cis achieves the effect of sunlit
waters by the fluidity of his col-
our. In both these paintings the
colour is better handled than in
“At Anchor”, where the solidity
of colour fails to convey the
translucence of the sea, here the
design 1s somewhat confused.

Successful

Francis has an undoubted af-
fection for trees, this is well ex-

in the “Old Tree”,

Prince is also successful in his
handling of trees and water, par-
ticularly in “The Pond” and “Rat
Island.” The aerial perspective of
the latter painting is, perhaps

The grades of officers whieh we have vcheduled
are analogous to those of the police service.

It will be seen from the schedules in Appendix
II that in the case of one of the above services, viz.,
postal, we have included certain of the highest
clerical posts. At first sight there might appear, in
this respect, to be some in with the ex-
posts from the other services which







clusion of such

we propose for unification. But im point of fact]

there is no inconsistency. It is only in the field of}
administration that we have found it necessary to
exclude the highest clerical posts for the reasons
given in paragraphs 59 to 62. duties attaching
to the clerical posts in the service which we
have scheduled are not administrative but executive
in character, and the re-organisation of the admin-
— service which we propose will not affect

em.

In the preceding paragraphs of this chapter, we
have set out the services which we recommend for
unification. The Federation of Civil Service Associ-
ations, a body which is strongly in favour of the
unification of the public serv: would go further
than we have felt able to do, and would add to our
list audit, public works, customs and excise, inland
revenue, treasury, labour, survey, government
themist and administrative officers of educational
departments. We have already given in paragraph
29 our reasons for excluding audit, inland
‘evenue, and treasury, and in paragraph 34 the
‘easons which make us think that the immediate
tnifications of the labour and survey servicer would
’e premature. Public works and educational admin-
stration fail, and signally fail, to satisfy one of the
‘riteria which we refer to in paragraph 29, namely,
chat the service should be one in which the qualifi-
vationy for entry and advancement are, broadly
speaking, of an equivalent standard. As regards the
government chemist, this is a post rather than a
service, and can, in our view, best be left to the
operation of voluntary transfer, as and when vacan-
cies occur.

Prima facie, customs and excise, as at present
generally organised, appears to us to. be a service
which could appropriately be unified. But the future
of this service is uncertain, in view of the fact that
the whole question of customg and excise is under’
review by the Customs Union Commission. In these -
circumstances, we do not feel able to make any
recommendation on the question of the unification
of the service. The matter will naturally fall to
2e considered by the Public Service Commission in
the light of such decisions as may be taken on the }
report of that Commission.

CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
In paragraphs 5 to 7 of his draft despatch, the

Services Report—cona

Secretary of State dwells upon the importance of |
ipplying common conditions of service to such!

services as may be recommended for unification. As
1e there points out, such uniformity will enabla
transfers to be easily and conveniently made and
= the most effective use to be made of available
alent.

While we readily subscribe to the principle laid
lown by the Secretary of State, we are constrained
to draw attention to certain difficulties to which
t application will give rise, It will be appreciated
that, in so far as changes may be made in the condi-
tions of service attathing to posts in unified services
only, the existing homogeneity in the matter of con-
jitions of service applicable to the holderg of com-
parable posts in the same colony will pro tanto be
mpaired, Human nature being what it is, any such
discrimination will be resented, and the resentment
is likely to be vocal. With this consideration in
mind, we have been at pains not to suggest uni-
formity for uniformity’s sake, and have limited our
proposals to those conditions of service which, in
our view, uniformity is, if not a necessary ante-
cedent to the introduction of a system of compulsory
transferability as between one colony in the area
ind another, at least a logical corollary to it. We
have accordingly excluded from our consideration
what may be called the minor conditions of
service, such as travelling and subsistence allow-
ances, acting allowances, local leave, and the like.
Such conditions are determinable in large measure
by loeal conditions, and we have not attempted to
iron out any variations there may be, since such
variations offer no obstacle to transferability from |
one colony to another, Indeed, with one exception,
question of uniformity of conditions of service?
Secretary of State’s draft despatch, namely, grad-
ing of posts, salaries, vacation leave, passages and

the age of retirement. The one exception is the im-
portant matter of housing.
GRADINGS AND SALARIES

The first of the conditions of service to be con-
sidered is the grading of pogis and the salaries to
attach to them. Such guidance as the Secretary of
State has to offer on these matters is contained in
the following extract from paragraph 6 of his draft
devpatch: “Common conditions of service would
imply a uniform system of grading of posts, a
common basic salary for comparable posts . .
Differences in conditions and costs of living in the
various colonies could be met by varying local
allowances.” Prima facie, nothing could be more
reasonable than this proposition, but a prolonged
examination has convinced us that it is impracti-
cable. The matter falls to be considered under two
heads, first, the introduction of a uniform system
of grading and common bagic salaries attaching to
the various grades. These are two facts of the same
problem, for unless common basic salaries are an
attainable end, the task—and it would be a formid-
able one—of scrapping the existing systems of
grading, widely different as they are, and replacing
them with a uniform system would serve no useful
purpove, Under the second head comes the question
of local additions to basic salaries to meet differ,
ences in conditions and costs of living.

The intention of paragraph 6 of the draft despatch
appears to be that, a decision having been ‘taken
that a particular service should be unified, a list of
grades should be prepared and each post in the
service of each colony should be allotted to one of
the grades. In order to consider how such an
arrangement could be applied, we take the ser-
vice which probably presents the greatest meas-
ure of homogeneity, viz., the commissioned ranks of
the police, and set out the gradings of that service
in the largest colony, Jamaica, and one of the

smaller colonies, British Honduras.

SIR,—Kindly allow me to thank

Mrs. Moore for her lettef purport-

= ‘to be an answer to my ques-
tion in this connection.

But unfortunately the lady mis-
understood the question, When
I asked “What is the idea or pur-
pose of such an item etc?” I did
not have in mind any allocation
of the profits, of which I knew
nothing, but simply and clearly,
“Why is a picidre of five half-
naked young women presemed as
an attractive advertisement of the
coming entertainment?” And I
am afraid that my interpretation
of that circumstance still must

stand. I wish j: could be ex-
plained away.

I am glad to learn that the
proceeds ere for the benefit of

2 the beauty

Beauty

To The Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—Francis Godson has sub-
mitted many worthy letters to
your correspondence columns, and
this is the first time that I have
found it necessary to offer an
opinion that might not altogether
be in keeping with Mr. Godson’s
views.
_ In qualifying a picture published
wy the “Advocate”, he used the
term “vulgar and indecent”. I
too saw the picture and I must
say that I saw nothing vulgar or
indecent about it. In fact, had I
been asked at the time, I might
have said that it would be diffi-
cult to find another five pairs of
legs that were more healthy in
appearance, more symmetrical in
design. As in any accepted paint-
ing by Peter Paul Rubens or
Maillol, the legs were displayed.
Now no one would think ill of a
person who attractively exhibited
of a woman's face

t To The

understand the bewilderment of a
person who in the course of a mere
sixty years has seen such a trans-

formation.
But Sir, one must move with
the times. Such developments

are as inevitable as death, and
futile are any efforts to retard
them. Yet minds may be made
easier if one considered that God hay
did not intend human beings to be w
clothed, and that they never would
have been if the forbidden fruit
had not been eaten. One might
do worse than consider certain
tribes whose womenfolk to this
day go around with uncovered
breasts, and attract no more
amorous attention from the males
than do the women of the Euro-
pean race. I think Sir, the time
has come when all should realise
that there as much simple
beauty in a shapely leg as there
is in a well-modelled arm

Brewery

To The Editor, The Advocate,
SIR,—I have read in your
paper a statement that a Brewery
is being contemplated in Barba-
dos; I hope this suggestion will
catch the eye of the Directors of
the Barbados Distilieries Ltd. It
is reilly on behalf of the share-

LETTERS which are si

assurance of good faith.

igned with a } nomde- lume, b
accompanied by the customary bona fides, will ie cr}
Many such reach the Editor's desk each week, and readers

are again reminded of the necessity for the writ
er’
to be known to the Editor, lou

holders of that Company, to
whom I am gratefully indebted
that I am making the suggestion.

In my humble opinion, it woul
be worthwhile making a vent
of brewing at Barbados Distiller-
ies. The present capacity af
unwanted space would be quite
ample for the requirements; and
the requisite vessels for manu-
facture can be supplied from over-
— equipment at very small
frosts.



I venture to give the suggestion
on the ground that some years
ago, I erected a small brewery
on lands of Mr. C.-H. Kinch and
succeeded with a small Brew of
superior quality Beer. I have no
doubt that it may be beneficial
to the Comipany in its present

If more money was needed, sup-
plementary resolutions would be
sent down to the House. Emigra-
tion was a matter of which no one
could speak with certainty at the
present time.

Mr. Adams (L) replying to the
remarks made about Emigration
said that at this stage, the Govern-
ment could only say, regretfully,
that the prospects were not bright.

That was due to the fact that
employers had no work for
would-be emigrants to do, and in
addition they came up against
Trade Unions who claimed that
the importation of emigrants low-
ered the rate of wages. In some
countries objection was taken on
grounds of race and colour.

Doing All

They were doing all that they
could, Mr. Adams said, and they
were trying to impress the British |
Government with the necessity of |
giving whatever help they could |
on the highest plane.

As far as the Evans Report was !
concerned, he had no official in- |
formation, but he had heard, un-
officially that there was no en-
thusiasm for an immediate impli-
mentation of that Report.

Mr, E. K. Walcott (E) asked
how many Jamaicans had been re-
cruited for work in the U.S.A.
within the last year.

Mr Adams (L) said he could|
not reply accurately on that point,
but he thought he was correct in
saying that Jamaica was having |
the same difficulty as Barbados.
Mr. Walcott (E) expresved the
view that where emigration to the
States was concerned, they should
try to make their own contacts
rather than depend on the Jamai-
can who looked after it at present. |
He had no confidence in the latter, |
who he considered saw after Ja-
maica’s benefit only. \

Dr. Cummins (L) replying to
the remarks about Surinam said
that representatives of that coun-
try were to meet representatives
of the Barbados Government, but
they had not yet turned up.

Mr, Allder (L) said that was a
sign that the Surinam authorities
were still desirous of having Bar-
badians. He would suggest that
since Barbados had the labour to
sell, they should take the lead and
send some person or persons to
negotiate with the Surinam au-

which they were dealing and also
Capital Works, he had seen no.
thing about the Harmony Hal
Road. He would like to kno\
from the hon. member in chargt
of the Department if provisio
for the carrying out of work or
the road was in the Estimates.
Large Vote

Referring to the sum of $10,9£
for bus signs, ete, Mr. J. H
Wilkinson (E) said vhat when he
questioned the large amount \!
$24,000 asked for last year, jit
had been explained by the hon
member in charge of the Depart
nent, that quite a lot of ‘bu
stops, road signs, eta. were re-

and that it was nece
sary to put in a large vote. Tit
same argument, however, cou)
not be made this year. The sw
of over $10,000 did appear to hij
to be an enormous amount t
noney for the purpose. The hof
nember could perhaps give the}
some details as to how that m@
ney was spent.

Travelling

Speaking on the item “Travel
ling Expenses,” Mr. T. O. Brydn
(L) said vhat roller drivers and
the like were given three cents
per mile outside a radius of fou
miles, andshe was suggesting that
instead of that Government f
low the example set by priva
enterprise like the Electric Com
pany and the Telephone Compan
and provide transportation for
these workers. Inc‘dentally, trans-
portation was provided for th
workers of the Waterworks De
partment, which was a Govern
ment concern,

There is a roller driver livin;
in this parish,” said Mr. Bryan
who had to ride to his work n
St. Andrew each day and back
He would suggest that some ei
fort be made to get transporca-
tion for these men.

Mr. O. T. Aiider (L) said thai
he wanted to know if the Gov-
ernment were going to make the
office of Tenantry Roads Engin-
eer permanent.

Many motorists were finding it
difficult to drive at night he said,
because of the difficulty of seeing
the stud signs. Some of them hac
complained that these signs wer:
too high. There were some dan-|}
gerous corners too which did not|
have any indicating studs. He}
felt these should be looked after. |

Mr, F. L. Walcott. (LL) said|
in replying to the comments, that
in the first place he would point!
out that the plan for Harmony
Hall. was still up for considera-
tion. The road was good in itself
but there was some difficulty
there about the drainage. An-!
other thing was that before the
Government embarked upon a
plan to go there and spend a con-
siderable amount of money, they |
would have to take into consid- |
eration the amount of money that
would have to be spent on other
roads in greater need. Something
would probably be done to pre- |
vent the water flooding there, but |
the curve would be eradicated in
process of time.





thorities.
Under Head 32—Department of

Highways and Transport, Mr.
Brancker (C) spoke fist. He
queried the appointment of
Parish Roads Engineer.
No Explanation
Referring to the item “Inci-

denvals,” Mr. Brancker said that
the vote of $1,200 was rather high
in the absence of any explana-
tion, as there was no note on it,
Apparently the sum was the same
as last year but he could not re-
member the explanation given
then, -

On the item of “Marking and
maintenance of traffic lines and
signs, road signs and bus stops,”
Mr. Brancker said that there were



mai 2 ;

certain districts in which ths
Transport Board had promised to
put stop signs but they had not
yet gone up. This caused a great
deal of hardship and inconveni
ence io the drivers of "buses who
were required to stop every now
and then for persons along the
particular route. He would sug-
gest to the Government member
| partment of Highways and Trans
} port to look into this matter.

On the item “Unestablished

| that some time ago certain check-
}ers had sought an interview with
| the Director of the Department on
| the question of being paid on :

' sired this change and he thought

there was a Works Committee
sitting on the question of reor-

natter of the post was for the

ate time.

Of the item “Incidentals,” Mr,

As regards the matter of trans

he considered that that was a
iatter for examination.

On the matter of the “Unestab
ished Staff” he was hop'ng that

vhen the Government took

natters, it would become the

tead to private employers.
Deaths

Mr, F.C,

over had tried to say that th

Mr. F. L. Waleott (L) said in

Estimates Committee that woul
not be able to be dealt with
this year,
the hon. member was saying but
he must bear in mind that the
repairs and reconstruction of a
road was a big one. The hon.
member would admit that there
were other curves that the Gov-
ernment had undertaken to do,
have done, and were still doing,
and he should not be so extrava-
gant to say that because this thing
was not done this year it would

never be done. He would ask
the hon. member to possess his

discussion, Mr. E. K, Walcott (Ek)
questiqned the House as_ to
whether the Housing Board hac
the authority to decide the issues
of the Pine or Bay estates.

He said that the Housing Board
was one of those Boards which did
not err through their haste. They
had to be pushed from every
quarter to try and get them to do
something. On one occasion the
House had had to vote money
for them when they had not even
asked for it. They had had to
uifge the Housing Board when
the money had been voted to try
and get ahead and do something.
The Board was an emancipated
Board and not a Government
Board.

Mr. Reece (E) was of a similar
opinion as tothe authority of the
Housing Board on such a point.

Amenities

Dr. Cummins (L) observed that
he was not of the legal trend and
he could not pursue the validity
of their argument. The Govern-
however, had set up 2a
Board to acquire land and move
houses. Streets were necessary
amenities to any community and
none could argue that lighting
was not of the utmost importance
| when streets were made.

Mr. Cox (L) said it seemed to
him as though the Honourable
member was not against the
voting of the money for light-
ing, but only against the legal
point of authority.

As the position was, he said,
they thought that by then the
Housing Board would have been
non-existence. They had passed
a Bill to transfer the powers of
the Board to the Government.
Until the passing of that Bill the
Housing Board was asked to go
into the question of administer-
ing at least the Bay Estate es-
pecially after the disaster of the
August floods.

Appropriate Department

The Board had been asked to
make recommendations and at
the same time deal with the ques-
tion of chattel, rent and tax
such other things. As far as he
knew the Housing Board was
the appropriate department to

amount of care requisite, the
many odd heads seen, would be
put in their right columns.

The head was passed.

Head 37, Peasants’ Loan Bank,
was passed without any con-
troversial points being raised.

The next head, Old Age Pen-
sions, was strongly criticised by
Mr. E. D. Mottley (E). He stress-
ed that the age fur old age pen-
sion should be 65.

Mr. Mottley (E) said that dis-
regardless of anything he would
express his opinion strongly on
that matter.

He still contended as he had
always contended and would
ever contend, that it woul
cost much money, but none
could for a moment think
furthermore suggest that it
would be money ill-spent.

The age that people should

be given old age pension, he

held, should be 65.
