Caribbean Must

Plan Agriculture

Development

ON AREA BASIS

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao, Dec. 7.
()N TUESDAY, the West Indies Conference Com-

mittee
reached by Dr. Daniel

unanimously

endorsed conclusions
Neumark of the Food and

Agriculture Organisation on the “importance of
agriculture in Caribbean economy.”’

He said that despite population pressure on

land, opportunities for

agricultural expansion in

the Caribbean were “very considerable’’.

He concluded that while the greatest poten-
tialities were to be found on the mainland territories
of the Guianas and British Honduras, opportuni-
ties for agricultural devolopment existed on many

islands.
Large

scale expenditure for drainage and clearing

forests, and for building roads was necessary to prepare

potential mainland areas for occupation.

Capital invest-

ment was also necessary for developing unutilised land in

the islands.



Etna Villagers See

Ray Of Hope

CATANIA, Dec. 7.
Hope flickered through three
villages on the heaving slopes of
Mount Etna as dawn showed 4

slackening in ithe terrifying
advance of lava.
After engulfing some houses

lying up the mountain side from
the main body of the village of

Rinazzo, the lava stream had
still not yet reached Milo and
Fornazzo.

Police said some 3,000 people

had stripped their houses of all
movables in the three villages,
and that already a flaming sea
of molten rock had eaten its way
through chestnut groves and
vineyards

The fiow was showing signs of
slackening but officials said this
was due to the conformation of
the ground and not to any abate-
ment in the convulsive vomitings
of the volcano,

Hundreds of tourists were flock-
ing from all over Sicily to watch
villages vanish for ever under
molten rock.

At the present rate of movement
it will take the lava several days
to cover Milo and Rinazzo. The
‘tongue which till late last night
was rolling on to Fornazzo seemed
today to have come to a halt,

—Reuter.



More foodstuffs for local con-
sumption could be produced with-
out affecting production of ex-
port crops. To improve nutrition
it was desirable to encourage
the production of milk, poultry
fish products, and green vegeta-
bles and adequate storage facili-
ties, especially cold storage, were
a necessary prerequisite.

Uneconomic size holdings in
many cases lead to good agricul-
tural land being neglected since
owners unable to make a living
often worked elsewhere.

Anothet handicap
farming was peasants having
land scattered in places far
apart. Re-allocation of holdings
was necessary.

Given transport and marketing
facilities, marginal sugar land
could be turned to dairying or
vegetable growing.

Greater opportunities

to good

existed

for inter-territorial exchange of
agricultural products. In some

eases the possibilities of earning
hard currency in nearby terri-
tories were being lost.

Co-ordinated planning on the
use of land and on marketing
was essential for an area with a
population density and such a
high rate of increase as the Carib-
bean.

Agricultural planning was no
longer feasible in each Carib-
bean territory in isolatton. Poli-
cies and programmes need form-
ulating for the area as a whole
Neumark said.

Crisis

LONDON, Dec. 7.

The British Cabinet discussed
the Korean crisis today at its first
meeting since the start of the

Washington talks.

Officially it was said that domes-
tic matters dominated today’s
meeting, but Ministers were un-
derstood to have been told in-
formally of decisions reached by
the Prime Minister and the United
States President in Washington.

The Prime Minister's office at
10 Downing Street, officially de-

Washington today that Truman
and Attlee had summitted two

problems for study by the British
Cabinet. According to a Washing-

Formosa should be included in

Communists and whether an

LONDON, Dec. 7.

British Defence Minister Eman -
uel Shinwell told the House ‘of
Commons to-day “quite emphati-
cally there ts no thought in our
minds or in the minds of Amer-
ican authorities of withdrawal
from Korea.”

The Defence Minister was an-
swering questions on the Korean
crisis. Earlier he made a prepared
statement in which he declared’
“We may have to prepare our-
selves for still harder tidings.”



Conservative Member Beverley
ixter asked him for assurate?,

that withdrawal was not contem-

plated.

He also refused to make any
comment when Labour member
Harold Davies said, “Some mem-
bers on Labour benches would
have nothing to do with the affair
if an atom bomb was dropped on
China.”

In his statement Shinwell said
it would be foolish to under-
estimate the size or determination
of Chinese intervention

He said the latest estimate from
General MacArthur’s headquart-
ers indicated that there were now
some 270,000 peasants in contact
with United Nations forces in
Korea.

Nearly 200,000 were in front of

Republicans Discuss
Dismissal of Acheson

WASHINGTON. Dec. 7

Republican Senate leaders to-
day decided to put before all their
senators a proposal calling for the
dismissal of Secretary of State
Dean Acheson.

Senator Robert Taft, Chairman
of the Senate Republican Policy
Committee of 11, told reporters
this had been the Committee’s de-
cision after an hour and a half
closed door session. He said that
the Committee had not taken any
direct action itself on the pro-
posal put before it by a senator
from New York, proposing they
call oh President Truman to sack
Acheson

Instead, it agreed to call a con-
ference of all 43 Republican Sen-
ators early next week, probably
on Tuesday, for a discussion of
the move as well as broader ques-
tions of foreign and military
political decisions. If Republican
senators agreed to back the de-
mand there was no assurance it
would be met. President Truman
has said repeatedly he had no in-
tention of letting Acheson go

U.S. Exports To Red
China Will Drop

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7,

The United States Department
of Commerce has tightened its
controls on exports to Communist
China again amid demands by
some American Senators that the
United States and Britain should
impose absolute embargoes against
such trade.

Representatives of foreign trad-
ers here said the new orders
amounted to an efnbargo in every-
thing but name.

They predicted a speedy drying
up of the currently small volume
of goods moving to Communist
China

They foresaw probable retalia-
tion on the part of the Chinese in
the form of the refusal by Com-
munist China to ship tin, Tung-
sten ore and other strategic ma-

terials that have been imported
here in growing volume during
\recent months

CANBERRA, Dec. 7

Australia’s Labour - dominated
Senate to-day dealt a severe blow
to the Government’s plang for
compulsory military training for
youths aged 18,

It referred the Bill, which has
already passed through the House
of Representatives to the Select
Committee on an amendment
moved by Labour party leaderr.

Labour opposition in the Senate
also stipulated that the Select
Committee should consist only of
Labour members.

They carried a second amend-
ment to the Bill postponing further
consideration of it until the first
sitting of the Senate in the new
year.

Menzies’ Government intro-
duced a compulsory military
training scheme in its programme,
increasing forces from 20,000 to
50,000 men.

It would train up to 21,000 men
per year at a cost of £7,750,000.

Panic Sweeps |

Seoul

SEOUL, Dec, 7

Near panic swept through the
South Korean capital today when
the news leaked out that the Gov-
ernment had secretly warned
members of the Assembly to send
their families to the south coast.

An authoritative source said

that the Government warning was
given by the Defence Minister
Shin Sung Mo at an emergency
secret session of the National
Assembly today.
Mo said it was “advisable” that
the families of prominent civil
servants should also be sent to
Pusan, He added that if the Com-
munist armies came south of the
38th parallel the Assembly and
the Government would immedi-
ately transfer there.

A few hours after the secret
session military Price opened the
barriers that had prevented civil-
ians crossing southward over the
Han River which funs through;
the southern suburbs.

In Seoul's main market this eve-
ning a grand piano could be
bought for about half the price o |

Reassurances from prominent |
citizens that advancing Commun
ists would stop at the 38th paral |

protect American marines and the Seventh Division
isolated in northeast Korea.

Led by bulldozers, marines with British com-

down the next leg of the Chinese “ricochet road’”’
from the Chosin reservoir area to the east coast.

They went ten miles down the road from
Hagaru to Kotori late last night and linked up with
the rest of the marine division about 15,000 men
all told, to begin the hardest escape move from the
Chinese trap.

SEE that an MP. has been

say, a thousand passengers to re-

thinks that this would bother the

But why should the railway
people care if a thousand travel-
lers having bought their tickets,
refused to travel? They would let
them wait on the platform, and
then bring up a far dirtier train.
By that time the passengers would
be ready to travel in a refuse-cart,
and the: executives could say next

filthy train yesterday, what is
your objection to a rather léss
filthy one today?” That would

leave the public without a leg, or

watching these things would be
able to see their favourites very
clearly, and even to gather auto-
graphs during a lull at the Well-
ington street crossing. “Arduous
test” is the phrase always used of
car rallies. Surely no test could
be more arduous than a 500-mile
route up and down the Strand,
day and night. I shall hope to
read, “Many drivers reported con-
siderable difficulties near Chan-
cery-lane.” '

Hands off my Liberals!

INGLE, dingle little Foot, as

the old parliamentary rhyme
goes. Mr. Foot, if I may so refer
to him, is afraid that the recent
refusal to allow foreign Commun-

propaganda in Sheffield may lead
to similar measures against Lib-

BAY WINDOWS
ARE IDLERS’
PLAYGROUND

HE BAY STREET windows|
are still the play-ground for |
many idlers. These windows which |
are supposed to be attractive and/
to add some beauty to that street,
are always in a dirty condition
with bits of paper, tins and rub-|
bish scattered about on the!
ground.

Yesterday an Advocate repre-|
sentative looking at these win- |
dows noticed that grass was grow- |
ing everywhere and the fishing
boats were still there.

The window opposite Jemmott’s
Lane is perhaps the most untidy
of the lot, as hawkers and fisher-
men find it a good site for selling.
Now that the flying fish season is
coming in, it is not an unusual !
sight for anyone to see the hawk- }
ers hustling around trying to get}
their fruit sold.

However, people still use the |
windows at night although —
complained.

The Esplanade is still the
favourite spot for many who need
some fresh air.

SUCCESS

THE - hundredth exhibition has been a
great success.

So great, that it has been now made
abundently clear that Queen’s Park is un-
able to contain an exhibition and fair of
this size. _

Poultry, pigeons, cattle, sheep, goats and
pigs are an exhibition in themselves.

Handicrafts, photos, and needlework are
hardly suited for an exhibition which is
calied agricultural and industrial.

Rum and beer seemed to be the main
industries on exhibit unless furniture
making is included.

The great number of booths suggests
that the word industrial might easily be

altered to commercial with no loss of
accurate nomenclature.

! It. is understood that the Agricultural
Society has many times in the past been
recommended to change the date of the
exhibition to the early months of the year
when there is greater variety of flowers.
At Easter there is no reason why there
should not be sufficient fruit and vege-
tables available for a display as worthy
as that now presented.

But whatever arguments may be adduced

by agriculturalists in favour of the present
season, there is no doubt whatever that the

exhibition suffers far more than it gains
in attempting to exhibit so much in such
cramped quarters,

The work of the artisans and the handi-
craft sections suffer particularly from this

handicap.

| There seems no reason why an exhibition
arranged by industrial and commercial in-
terests should not be held in December
every year at the Princess Alice Playing
Field; while an agricultural exhibition
could be held twice yearly in Queen’s
Park or in other agricultural stations.

| Agriculture in Barbados is’ not a thing
of one month. It follows the cycle of the
Seasons and every month there ought to
be small exhibitions and displays in the
country which will culminate in the two
major displays of the year.

Nothing in these proposals can detract
from the success of this year’s exhibition
and Barbados has once again been remind-
ed of the variety of life and interests that
exist in this small island. It is a subject
for congratulation that they should be
brought prominently into notice each year



“To The Museum”

TODAY there is on exhibition at the
Barbados Museum until the last day of
December an exhibition of photographs,
sponsored by the Barbados Advocate.

The purpose of the exhibition is to show
the public of Barbados the high photo-
graphic talent which can be found and
utilised by the community.

The subject matter of the competition,
which stressed the ideal of historical inter-
est has resulted in the collection of an
excellent variety of pictures which will
help Barbadians to understand more of
the attractions of the island.

The photos exhibited include old monu-
ments, country houses, churches and _his-
toric sites many of which are unknown to
large numbers of Barbadians.

The photos themselves vary from a very
high level of photographic art to that of
the modest amateur. The exhibition caters
for every taste and all the photos submit-
ted to the Advocate have been exhibited
in order to encourage all contestants
equally.

If the Photos are of special interest for
the resident of Barbados their appeal to
the visitor or tourist is irresistible, What
better way of finding out where to go and
what to see in Barbados than a visit to this
exhibition?

There in large-size well-displayed photo-
graphs can be seen in half an hour most of
the places of interest that every tourist
will want to visit. Not even the most per-
sistent explorer will have seen them all.

There is one body in Barbados which
the exhibition will benefit materially.

The Barbados Publicity Committee in its
anxiety to publicise Barbados is always on
the lookout for new and excellent pictures.
This exhibition contains many new and
excellent pictures and there is no doubt
that when the members of the Publicity
Committee visit the exhibition they will
be eager to acquire some of them for dis-
play on steamships, airway terminals and
‘even in the Baggage Warehouse itself.

NOTE





The Hon. V. C
| represented Barbados as an ob-
j}server at the Second Annual
| Meeting of the Caribbean Interim
| Tourism Committce in Puerto
| Rico

At this meeting the first matter
lof business was discussion of the
urgent need of additional tourist
|facilities in the Caribbean and
the lack of capital both for their
development and for their con-
struction. There was also a
full discussion of the need
| fer capital under favouraBle terms
| for tourist construction. Mr
| Wall, who represented the US
| Chamber of Commerce, told of his
trip to England, France and Hol-
jland to urge thes? governments
\to adopt a forward looking plan
for tourist development assistance

their Caribbean possessions,
| ond expressed the belief that th=
| metropolitan governments would
take a greater iricrest in Carib-
bean tourist development. He
irged that this matter be followed
up by the islands conceti.ed with
\their home governments
rescilutious were adopte

covering these matters. The first
one requesis the Caribbean Com-
mission to seek a prompt means
jof obtaining Point IV., ECA and
| United Nations’ technical assjs-
(tance for surveys of specific and
rencral Caribbean tourist develop-
jraent projects, including new
|hotels, fishing and handicrafts.

Gale, M.LC.,

The second resolution called to
the attention of the member gov -
ernments the importance of invest-
ment of local capital and govern-
ment funds under favourable
terms both for improvement of
existing facilities and the devel-
opment of new facilities. It
urged the establishment of at
least one y planned and
expertly managed “pilot plant
hotel in each area

The third resolution aims to
take ful) advantage of the tech-
nicians available in the Carib-
bean area as well as from a
in ¢ ing tourism. It sets
up a C.ILT.C. a panel of
spec alists who will be available
to v sit different Caribbean areas
on :pecifie tourist projects.

Cognizance was taken of the
importance’ of training programs
for hotel and travel personne!
and bases were established for
the exchange of personne] within
the Caribbean.

The principle of joint advertis-
ing of the Caribbean area as the
Americans’ all-year—round re-
crestion and travel] area was
app.oved, An advertising agency

individual members will continue
to be responsible for the direc

program being entirely on an
area basis. Among the promotional
efforts, one or more special trips
for key travel] agents through the
Caribbean area as well as
invitations to travel writers, and
photographers, were agreed upon

Among promotional techniques
the Secretary's report and recom-

The C.1.T.C. will publish a

Faith was expressed that with
aggressive individusl and group
methods the transr ‘ation com-
panies, hotels and trave! agents
could make summer business to
the Caribbean even larger thar

A strong recommendation was
sent to member governments that
each member island should have
and maintain an official tourist
office with a full time experi-
enced director to develop anda
promete tourism, remindi the
governments that the efforts of
these men would certainly resuit
in increased tourist and tax in-
come to the islands far in excess
of the cost. :

The key role of sea and air
transportation to and through the
area was fully discussed. On the
score of ocean transportation, the
shortage of passenger steamship
service to and through the area
was emphasized, and the steam-
ship companies urged, in
view of their large stake
in Caribbean tourism, to try to
supplement and add to their ex-

ti





own

der-

isting services, particularly in
providing an inter-Caribbean
passenger steamship service on

regular schedule. Air service was
recognised as the volume means
of passenger transportation and

opment of all-expense trips and

these for 1951 will be a Caribbean
festival protray the art, music,
Gancing and crafts of the Carib-
bean, to be hel@-in the summer
of 1951, probably in San Juan.
A sub-committee report brought
out the great importance of
handicraft production throughout
the ares as an impetus to tourism
and a plan of action was agreed
upon ooking forward to the
development of a major project
t@ further organize and stimulate
handicraft production throughout
the area preserving the native
character of the work

Among other items discussed
and acted upon were: a request
for an authoritative study of the
economic value of tourism; also
a plan for gathering uniform
statistics from all Caribbean vis
tors to measure the tourist busi-
ness.

A_ resclution authorized the
drafting of a charter for a per-
manent Caribbean Travel Devel-
cpment Association to be circula-
“ed to members for discussion at
ihe next meeting with a view to
cstablishing such organization by
January 1, 1952
The Executive Secretary stated
@nat approximately $10,000.00
would be left over from the 1950
year and the delegates presen
confirmed their payments total-
ling $30,000.00 for 1951, making
an available total of $40.000.00
If Jamaica ($6,000) and Barbados
($5,000) join, there will
additional $11,000.00 available
After full discussion, a budget
allocating $40,000.00 was adopted
with the provision that of any
additional funds received $2,000.00
would go to the Chairman’s con-
tingency fund and the balance tc
increase the advertising and
printed material appropriation.

Salvador Catrain, delegate for
the Dominican Republic, present-
ed an invitation from his govern-
ment requesting the delegates to
hold the next meeting in the
Dominican Republic and offering
the same facilities that had been
extended in Puerto Rico, with the
suggestion that part of the meet-
ings be held in Ciudad Trujille
and the balance in
new hotels in the interior. The
invitation of the Dominican Re-
public was unanimously accepted
and decision made to hold the
next meeting in May 1951.

THE MAN IN CELL 9

ACCRA.
In unsleeping Accra the dance
bands and pene eae
blaring tonight, at full v e,
the convent hit tune of Africa's

Gold Coast.

It is a samba-like dance number
labelled on the juke-box list
as “Everybody Likes Kwame

”»

A rvecdy” is lyric-writer’s
licence, for I found Kwame
Nkruma in Cell No. 9 of the
whitewashed prison fort perched
over Accra Harbour. He was
moodily stripping weavers’ cane
in the hard-labour workshops,

Nkruma (pronounce his name
Nek-roo-mah) was one of The Six
Ambitious Men who attempted to
seize power on the Gold Coast in
the riots of February, 1948.

He was leader of the clumsily
and contradictorily named ‘ Posi-
tive Action, Non-Violence, Self-
Government Now” general strike
which collapsed after ten days.

Sedition . . Sasi

Nkruma’s crime was on in
an attempt to anticipate British
plans to give a form of self-gov-
ernment to the Gold Coast,

For to-day, as the barefoot
Nkruma stares through his barred
but glassless jail windows, the
Gold Coast is beginning its first
general election campaign.

I flew into Accra on one of the
hottest days of the year to solve
the Gold Coast riddle: How pow-
erful can a convict be when vot-
ing is going on outside?

The object of the ballot—which
takes place in January — is to
give the Gold Coast a popularly
elected Assembly, the first of its
kind in Colonial Africa.

A Governor—with a power of
veto similar to that of the Presi-
dent of the United States—will
remain as the representative of
Britain,

Briefly, what will happen on
polling day is that 84 members
will be elected to a new central
Legislative Assembly.

A Cabinet of nine—some Euro-
peans, some Africans—will be
appointed by the Governor, and
must be confirmed by a_ two-
thirds majority in the Assembly.

£50 Deposits...

The election will be a fight be-
tween Nkruma’s Convention Peo-
ple’s Party and the moderates,

Nkruma’s party is the only one
organised to fight an election, and
the only one able to find a £50
deposit for all its candidates, Offi-
cially, the C.P.P, has, perhaps,
100,000 members, but the number
of 6d. a month recruits is increas-
ing as the prospect of “jobs for
the boys” gets nearer,

Even this growing membership
—only a minute fraction of the
one anda half million voters
now being registered—gives a
false impression of Nkruma’s
power.

Municipal elections have shown
that the moderates in The five
towns are politically apathetic or
afraid, and most of them stay at
home on polling day. Nkruma’s
party has been able to get land-
slide victories purely by opposi-
tion default.

Vast education campaigns—by
leaflets and mobile cinemas—are
now being conducted to counter
this apathy.

Since many of the population
of the Gold Coast are illiterate,
instructions for getting on the
electoral register have been sim-
plified by the use of pin-men
illustrations.

For example: people are being
told they may vote: (1) If they
are British (a pin-man waving a
Union Jack gets the idea home) ;
(2) If they are 21 (a picture of

By W. A. Crumley

a baptism certificate explains it);
and (3) If they have paid their
levy (for this, there is a little
man holding two bags marke’
with the £ sign).

Dollars .. . “

The daring nature of Britain's
experiment in transferring power
to political novices—and the im-
portance of education in voting—-
is shown by a look at the Gold
Coast’s balance sheet.

Nearly half the world’s cocoa,
gold, manganese, timber, bauxite,
and diamonds—all these help the
Gold Coast to scoop £40,000,000 a
year in dollars into the pool.

I went to see Prison Graduate
Komla Gbedemah, the “strong
man” who, released from jail
eight months ago after a term for
publishing false news, is re-or-
ganising the party for the man in
cell No, 9.

He sat in the absent chairman’s
seat at the three-roomed party
headquarters, Nkruma’s books
still on the desk—a Koran in
English. “Hegel to Marx,” and
Quintin Hogg’s “The Purpose of
Parliament” among them.

He said: “I will say or do no-
thing disloyal to Kwame.”

He realises that the new Con-

stitution is not full self-Govern-
ment; that even were his party
to capture every possible seat 1t
must certainly remain a minority
in Parliament.

I asked if he was prepared to
try to make the Constitution work,
to accept majority decisions in
Parliament.

“It all depends if the Governor
is reasonable about our demands
for full self-government, and

ubout using his veto.”

It depends, too, on Nkruma.
who alone of the 25 fcllowers
still in jail, will not be freed
hefore polling day.

‘Victory’

According to himsei(, 41-year
old Nkruma is a “non-Communist.
non-smoker, non-vegetarian.” He
was a professor of Negro history
in the United States, and a Lon-

don School of Economics stu-
dent-revolutionary.
As he hears his campaigners

marching by and singing “Kwame
Nkruma is behind the prison bars,
but his soul goes marching on,”
the prisoner sings back a new
party anthem: “There is victory
for us.”

The degree of victory depends
on the race now under way. I

Britain’s Colonial Masters

“PAX ROMANA” By Lawrence Waddy, (Chapman & Hall, 15/-) printing magazines.” She concluded _ her

Reviewed by

LONDON.

If in two thousand years hence
a Colonial student of antiquity
looks back to the era of tish
rule in the colonies, what will
he say of those Britishers whose
influence will still be evident?
Will he follow Lawrence Waddy
who, in “Pax Romana” deplores
the failure of the former Roman
masters of England to adapt the
Roman Empire so that it could
survive indefinitely? The en-
during Roman Empire would
have protected its provinces and
its colonies from both the Dark
Ages and the “chaos of modern
nationalism.”

“Pax Romana” is a history of
Rome and its empire from a new
standpoint. It is new because
Mr. Waddy looks to Rome ta
answer some of the questions
that face the world today par-
ticularly the modern anxiety
caused by disunity among nations.
It is new because, though he gives
us an admirable summary of
Rome's political and military his-
tory, he is concerned chiefly with
the ideas and aims of the Romans.
and their limitations, He gives
the layman an intelligible picture
which the specialist sometimes
misses.

To the present-day student of
“Empire” or “Imperialism”
(according to the point of view)
his account of the nature of the
Roman imperial relationship is
fascinating. Rome was able to
introduce everywhere the idea of
“city loyalty” (if it did not exist
already) and, in spite of some
“nationalist” outbreaks, particu-
Jarly among the Jews, she was
successful in preventing the
growth of national loyalties. The
good citizen of the Roman Empire

could feel a genuine loyalty to
his city and to his Emperor,
whatever his own “nationality”
or “race”,

Even in tribal Britain, city life
took roots. The cynical Tacitus
wrote of Agrippa’s “policy in
Britain: “He had the sons of

E. B. Timothy

chieftains educated in the so-
called liberal studies, He
expressed admiration for the nat-
ural ability of Britons, in contrast
to the earnest efforts of Gauls.
And so men who at one moment
turned from the Roman tongue
in disgust, with the next breath

aped our eloquence — the toga
appeared everywhere, and the
allurements of vice. . Little

knowing, they called this ‘civili-
sation’ when really it was part
and parcel of their slavery.” But
to Mr. Waddy two thousand years
later, it is clear that Britain was
better off under the Romans than
she would have been if “free”,

The weakness of the Romans
he finds in their lack of vision,
or ultimate purpose and faith;
their lack of mental originality,
The fundamental weakness of
their empire was the institution
of slavery which destroyed the
empire, but a universal degen-
eration which could afford no
opposition to the barbarian
invaders.

One is disappointed that Mr.
Waddy passes so lightly over the
problem of “colour consciousness”
which plays such an important
role in modern empires and in
the British Commonwealth, at
least, is the chief disintegrating
factor.

Was there any colour discrim-
ination in Rome? Would the
Emperor Septimus Severus, or
Apuleius, author of the “Golden

Ass”, have fourid fame if they
had been “African” or “West
Indian” in the modern sense,
instead of inhabitants of North
Africa and Egypt? Is French
Colonial poticy really that of

Claudius, who considered it “in
the best interests of the Empire
that merit, wherever it is found,
should be transplanted to Rome
and made our own”? One won-
ders too, Why, if slavery was so
fatal to Roman vitality, it

| WILLTAM HENRY FOX |
j 4 i}
| TALBOI |

William Henry Fox Talbot, the inventor |
of photography, was born one hundred |
and fifty years ago in Lacock, Wiltshire, and |
his grand-daughter, Matilda Talbot, recently |
gave a talk about him in a BBC programme. |

She was only six when he died but she re-
members him clearly, an old gentleman with
a kind face and voice, who wore a rather
crumpled long black coat. Little was known
of his early days until she and her sister
discovered a number of letters written by
him in his boyhood. He kept a diary from |
the age of six and it was about this time that ||
he said seriously to his mother, “Mamma, |
Betty (the maid) is very disobliging. I have! ‘
asked her to revolve on her axis and she |
will not.” He went to school first at‘Rotting-
dean and then at Harrow, the famous English | |
public school. At Harrow he studied two}!
subjects which were not then in the school!'
curriculum — botany and chemistry. His|
interest in chemistry became a passion, but |
one day while he was carrying out some|)
private experiments there was an explosion
and an end was put to his work. When Be
was thirteen, he reached the top form, |
and a year later the headmaster recommend- |
ed that he should leave Harrow for, if he),
stayed on, he would have to become Head ,
Boy, a position for which he was too young Li
After two years of study under a private
tutor, he went up to Cambridge University;
and did brilliantly.

Fox Talbot married in 1832 and in the fol-| }
lowing year took his wife to Europe. They!
Stayed in Italy, and he tried to sketch, but
the results were disappointing. He then
used a camera obscura, and traced on paper
the outline of the views shown by it, but
this too was unsatisfactory and led him on
to think of another method of ee
an image. Starting from the knowledge that! {
nitrate of silver darkens under the action of} {f
light, he began to experiment, and within
a year was able to send contact prints to
relatives, who described them as “shadows.”

| Some of these prints had great beauty and|
| delicacy, but he was unable to fix.them and
| had to keep them in the dark, He succeeded
in fixing them later on by using a strong)
salt solution and the next step was to get'
pictures, not by contact, but by exposure in
a camera, Eventually he obtained very small
negative pictures in little cameras which had
been made for him by a Lacock carpenter.
“This,” said Miss Talbot, “was the germ from
which all subsequent photographic work has
developed, for it was a negative and, being
fixed, any desired number of positive pictures
could be obtained from it.” When it became
known that Daguerre in Paris had been able
to produce photographic images, Fox Talbot
also announced his discoveries. Neither man
had any idea of what the other had been
doing and the two processes proved to be
entirely different. Some of Daguerre’s pic-
tures were very beautiful but, unlike Fox
Talbot's photographs, only one picture could
be produced on a metal plate.

Fox Talbot’s “Pencil of Nature” was the
first book to be illustrated by photography
and in it he indicated the use of ultra violet
rays in photography, and suggested its use
as a weapon against crime. Miss Talbot has
many lovely specimens of her grand-



photographic image was transferred to the
sensitised surface of a copper plate and the
plate etched with an acid. After cleaning off
the sensitising medium, any number of
reproductions could be obtained from
printer’s ink. This process was the fore-run-
ner of photogravure, now largely used in

broadcast by saying, “It has been very grati-
fying to see an increased interest in all these
scientific activities of my grandfather’s dur-
ing recent years, and to know that his fertile
imagination and innumerable experiments

have given lasting benefit to the whole of
mankind.”



CANADA DRINKING MORE B.G. RUM

GEORGETOWN, Dec. 5,

British Guiana’s export trade with Canada
reached its peak with Canada last year when
$24,355,000 worth of goods was exported,
according to Mr. Rex Stollmeyer, Trade
Commissioner for the British West Indies,
British Guiana and the Bahamas, now on a
visit to the Colony. The Colony also did
more trade with Canada than any other
British Caribbean colony, Mr. Stollmeyer
said,

Most promising of the exports was
Demerara rum, for which there was a grow-
ing trade.

Mr. Stollmeyer warned that there was
Serious competition developing out of rum
manufactured in Canada from molasses mix-
ed with Demerara or Jamaica rum. This fum
was not up to the standard of genuine Carib-
bean rum, but it was being pushed by one
of the biggest advertising campaigns the in-
dustry had ever known. |

Big C rowds Pack

Queen’s Park
ON LAST EXHIBITION DAY

THE 100th Annual Industrial Exhibition drew
crowd on the second and final day yesterday.

walking was a difficult matter.

a big

p.m. Queen's Park was jam-packed, and three hours later,

The Gymkhana with a re-



| GOVERNOR

cord number of competitors—28—was held yesterday, and

special prizes were distributed by His Excellency the

Governor.
Business for booth proprietors
naturally brightened, and so did
business for the stalls offering
chances {n Bingo and other games.

The Police Band previded music
for the Gymkhana.

Long dresses, short dresses and
those cf medium length were seen
in the Park, and there was a
wealth of colour and fashion. On
the whole, men’s ties were not so
“hot” as they were last year, but
here and there were wearers of
daring designs.

Those who attended the show
yesterday missed seeing some of
the high quality exhibits of cattle,
swine, sheep and goats, because
the owners always remove them
after the first day. But there was
still much to see and to do, and
the Park echoed with the voices
of people enjoying themselves
until the show ended at mid-night.

Before the special prizes were
Presented, Mr. C. M. Drayton,
President of the Agricultural So-
ciety, made a brief speech. The
Governor then made_ his speech
and the presentation of the prizes.

Mr. Drayton’s Speech:

IN the olden days when trans-
port was chiefly on horseback,
or in carriages where roads exist-
ed, most parishes had District
Agricultural Societies where the
planters of those days used to
meet to thrash out the difficulties
which then existed. At that time,
‘on leaving school at 12 or 14 years
of age, a young man was bonded
as an apprentice on some planta-
tion for two years without salary,
after which h
years work for salaries of $5.00 to
$10.00 a month. During this time
he had to learn practically every
trade in addition to that of agricul-
ture. We did not have specialists
in those days and every plantation
was a unit in itself, On the pianter
of that day, devolved the training
and behaviour of all who lived
and worked on his estate and the
District Agricultural Stations were
their headquarters. In 1846 these
District Agricultural Sccieties
were amalgamated into one Gen-
eral Agricultural Society with
meetings held every Friday, and
the first Exhibition was held at
the Market place—14th December
1850. Since then, it has continued
as an Annual event, and few
people realised that it is to those
grand old Gentlemen who worked
and planned for the betterment of
Barbados that we owe the success
of making this Island the garden
of the West Indies,

Personally I can only recall
some 55 years of these Exhibitions:
from the days when it was held
at Harrison College with the
Military Band and soldiers in at-
tendance. From these early days,
I have been privileged to know
Some of those Gentlemen and for
the last twenty years have assist-
ed. Such eminent men as Sir Fred-
erick Clarke, Sir Laurie Pile,
Major Watson, Mr. Henry Arthur,
and indeed many more, have done
work for Barbados, the value of
which few can realise, Their ex-
amples have encouraged others
to carry on the good work which
you see here displayed today,

The Governor's Speech:

It is over a year since I arriv—
ed in Barbados and one of my
first duties was to be present at
this Exhibition. I was genuinely
and deeply impressed particulariy
with the variety of entries and
the general indications of pro-
ductivity of this island.

exhibits, I admit my first though

any means, but our own interests, ory body. On the other hand, any t



as well as world conditions, mak»
it essential that food production
in the island for local consump-
tion must be maintained and in-
creased. With a view to all round
inereased crop production the De-
partment of Agriculture has ob-
j tained an Irrigation Officer and
;is seeking the services of a Cul-
tivation Officer so that further
specialized attention will be paid
to soil improvement and conser-
vation. :
The scheme for the establish-

he would for many | ment of a Central Creamery has

been accepted in principle for
some time and I do regret that
delays on my part in recent
months have deferred final con-
sideration. I hope within a few
days that the discussions will be
resumed. The development of a
dairy industry in Barbados as an
ancillary to sugar production is
entirely dependent on the estab-
lishment of a Central Creame"y
and I hope that land owners will!
be prepared to give every pos-
sible support to the scheme.

In the last twelve months I
have travelled over 6,000 miles in
the highways and by-ways of
Barbados, and although now I
take the.intensive cultivation for
granted, I appreciate the con-
tinued drive and energy which is
necessary to maintain’ the high
level of productivity essential for
the well-being of the whole com-
munity, But we all know it is not
endugh, if the increasing popu-
lation is to enjoy improved stand -
ards of living. I had hoped that
as a result of a speech I made
earlier this year that there wou!d
have been-a number of applica-
tions for loans from Government

pose a philanthropic fund but_a
scheme whereby individuals and
others with knowledge and prac-
tical experience in industri
production would be able to ob«
tain funds for development o2f
their small undertakings or of
new minor industries. As I have
said before, it will mean taking
some risks and probably financial
risks which could not be under-
taken by the notmal lending in-
stitutions. ‘
Secondary Industries

I have in mind, therefore, to
set up a Secondary Industries
Board to invite and investigate
applications for assistance for the
promotion and development of
secondary industries in this
Island. 1 would hope as a resui

major schemes would require t-e
prior approval of the Legisla
ture.

The details of the sugar agree-
ment with the

individual countries in
ibbean have not yet been made
public and I trust I shall
not be indiscreet if I refer to the
matter as it affects Barbados. It

to the
the Car-

is recognised by all that a long
term sugar agreement for the
West Indies generally is the

most important economic devel-
opment of the century. We now
can look forward—apart from the
disaster of a major war, which I
pray God will be avoided—we
ean look forward for the next
decade to a period with sound
economic foundations and, there-

fore, with a security which has
not previously existed. I believe
the figures for Barbados will

give confidence in their future to
all Barbadians and that we shall
be able to consider a plan of
development with greater confi-
dence than was previously possi~
ble.

thoughts. Confidence in each

By FRED DOERFLINGER
LONDON.
British brains have been
twisted and turned for the “nutty
notions” corner of the 1951 Fes-
tival of Britain exhibition.

Within two weeks of the appeal
by Festival official Laurie Lee
for “cranky creations” the
nation’s eccentrics have inun-
dated Festival headquarters in
London with concrete evidence
of national insanity.

e@ man has invented a stair-
case with weighted steps which
gives the feeling of going up-
stairs when going down.

Outdoing Lee’s suggestion to
provide examples to stand up to
the foreigners’ idea of the ‘mad
English” another British genius
has developed a unique mouse
trap maze in rough brick.

Panne is lured into the
maze by the overpowering smell
of ripe cheese and is diverted into
dead ends until it is hysterical.
Its frantic running stirs up
Pp on the pathways causing
such violent sneezing that the
mouse “bashes its brains out” on
the rough brickwork.

Then there is a rubber bus
which deflates “when going
under low bridges” and a smoke-
grinding machine for “grinding
smoke if you want your smoke
ground.”

Lee, admittedly something of
an ercentric himself, does not
quite know what to do about the
offer of a budding “madman” to
dry up the skies for the Festival

is clever character enclosed
testimonjals of his ability from
several women whose Monday
morning wash is never touched
by rain, and suggested in a
nicely nasty way that if his offer
was not accepted he would make
next summer “absolute hell.”

Another gent with an obviously
fertile brain offered to construct
a machine 20 feet square on
sound engineering principles with
the sole object of “blowing out
matches.”

This idea was
enough for Lee.

London Boys To
Play Host To
World Scouts

(From Our



Own Correspondent)
LONDON.
Boy Scouts from all parts of
the world are to participate next
year in an International Patrol
Camp to be held in connection
with the Festival of Britain. Tne
Camp, organised by the County
of London Boy Scouts will be
situated at Gilwell Park, near
Chingford, from August 22 to
September 1
So far 44 countries have ac-
cepted the invitation to attend.

They include Pakistan, Ceylon
Malaya, Uganda, Zanzibar, Sierra
Leone, Malta, Gibraltar, Trini-

cad, Windward Islands Jamaica,
Bermuda and British Guiana.

The Pakistan contingent will
eome to London after attending
the World Jamboree in Austria,
being held earlier in August. Be-
fore the camp, they will enjoy
hospitality in the homes of Lon-
don scouts for a week and will
visit the Féstival.

Kenya, Tanganyika and North-
ern Rhodesia have received invi-
tations but it is doubtful at the
moment if they will accept in
view of the holding of the Central
African Jamboree the following
year.

Patrols of six, made up of three
overseas scouts and three London
Scouts, will camp together for ¢
Iweek during the internationnl
gathering in London.

Besides attending tne Interna-
tional Camp, the Overseas Scouts
will have the opportunity of see-
ing an exhibition of Antarctic
expedition relics, including those
of Captain Scott. This exhibition
remains open throughout the
period of the Festival.

A small camp is being set up
within the Festiva! site itself. It
is being manned by Scouts and
other Youth organisations. Scouts
are also taking part in displays
in the open air arena in the week
August 26 to September |

National Voluntary Youth Or-
ganisations, including the Bev

couts’ Association. are staging a
Pavilion of Youth. This will con-
sist of a reception and information
centre, and a hall for exhibitions,

perfecting the machine so that it(demonstrations and dramatic pres-

lights matches as well.—I.N\S.

CANASTA

CANASTA in Spanish means “a basket”. It is also



the name of the Uruguayan card game which became a
craze in the United States and has gained a firm foothold
on this side of the Atlantic.

The game is said to have been invented by the ladies of
Montevideo in a successful attempt to lure the menfolk
away from their eternal games of Poker.

Canasta is a truly social game, combining the easy
mechanics of Rummy with some of the skill of Bridge and
the bluff element of Poker.

It can be learned in little time

and does not require the vast fund
NS





of knowledge of the complete
ARTIE’S HEADLINE Bridge player.
It may be described as the

greatest boon of all time for the
harassed hostess who never knows
what to arrange for the Browns,
who don’t play Bridge, or the
Smiths who love q mild gamble.

Canasta belongs to the Rummy
family of card games. The main
object is to collect canastas of
}seven cards of-a-kind, suits and
sequences play no part.

Two packs of 52 cards each are
used with the addition of four
Jokers which together with the
eight Twos count as “wild” cards
and can be used at the discretion
of their holder to represent any
other card or a& a stop card to
“freeze” the pack—i.e., to prevent
the opposition gaining possession
of cards previously discarded

The game can be played by two,

the northeast coast. He compared
their fishing grounds to a narrow
belt of water about four miles
thick and following the winding
coastline. “If the fish come in,” he
said, ‘our fishermen work like
dogs and catch them, But if the
fish do not come in, the fishermen
go on the dole.”















Loans To fishermen

Premier Smallwooa spoke of the
Government's plans for moderni-
zation of the fisheries. He men-
tioned the newly formed fisheries
loan board which would be given
from one to five million dollars to
enable fishermen to finance new
and better boats and fishing gear,
and to teach them more modern
methods of catching fish.

He said the Government has
studied fishing methods in other
countries and would soon put some
of these practices into operation
in Newfoundland.

In this connection he said that
next month a boat of the Nor-
wegian type would be launched

The new type boat would
be capable of fishing in all seasons
and with all types of fishing gear,
the Premier said.

The boat is based on the Nor~-
wegian-type fishing craft and can
fish in comparatively rough wa-
ters. It is being built of local wood
at the Clarenville shipyards.

Sixty feet long with a 17-foot
beam and a nine-foot depth, the
boat is 48 gross tons, powered with
a 160 horsepower engine. It will
carry 63,000 pounds of fish with
summer icing and has a fuel cap-
acity for 2,000 miles cruising.

Although not yet officially
named Newfoundlanders are
already calling her ‘“Lukie’s boat”

Handicralts. photos, and needlework are hardly tutted for jn exhibition which is called atjnculturjl and industrial Rum and beer seemed to be UM mair. Industries un xhioit unless furniture making is inclumd. The great number of booths suggests that the word industrial might easily be altered to commercial with no lots of accurate i.on,encljturi\ It is understood that the Agricultural Society has many times in the past been recommended to change the dai< exhibition to the early months of the year when there i graatai varittj ol flowers At East IT there is no reason why there should not be iufllcitPt fruit and vegetables available for a display as worthy as that now presented. But whatever arguments may be adduced by agriculturalists in favour of the present season, there is no doubt whatever that the exhibition aufir* f;r monthan it gains In attempting to exhibit so much in such cramped quarters. The work of the artisans and the handicraft sections sulfer particularly from this handicap There seems no reason why an exhibition arranged by industrial and commercial interests should not be held in December every year at the Princess Alice Playing Field; while an agricultural exhibition could he held twicp yearly in Queens Park or in other agricultural stations. Agriculture in Barbados is not a thing of one month. It follows the cycle of the seasons and every month there ought to be small exhibitions and displays in the country which will culminate in the two major displays of the year. Nothing in these proposals can detract from the success of this year's exhibition and Barbados lias once again been lemiiided of th<' variety of life and utter* I thai exist in this small island. It Is a subject for congratulation that they should be brought prominently into notice each yeai "...To The Museum TODAY there is on exhibition at the Barbados Museum until the last day of December an exhibition of photographs, sponsored by the Barbados Advocate. The purpose of the exhibition Is to show the public of Barbados the high photographic talent which can be found and utilised by the community. '. The subject matter of the competition. which stressed the ideal of historical inter; est has resulted in the collection of an ; excellent variety of pictures which will 8'. help Barbadians to understand more of > the attractions of the island. jf The photos exhibited include old nionuf menu, country houses, churches and hisI toric sites many of which are unknown to large numbers of Barbadians. The photos themselves vary from a very high level of photographic art to that of the modest amateur. The exhibition caters for every taste and all the photos submit_ ted to the Advocate have been exhibited j In order to encourage all contestants • equally. If the Photos are of special interest for the resident of Barbados their appeal to the visitor or tourist is irresistible. What better way of finding out where to go and what to see in Barbados than a visit to this exhibition? There in large-size well-displayed photographs can be seen in half an hour most of the places of interest that every tourist will want to visit. Not even the most persistent explorer will have seen them all. There is one body in Barbados which the exhibition will benefit materially. The Barbados Publicity Committee in its anxiety to publicise Barbados is always on the lookout for new and excellent pictures. This exhibition contains many new and excellent pictures and there is no doubt that when the members of the Publicity Committee It the exhibition they will be eager Ic acquit* some of them for display on sti in dips, airway terminals and even in th I B ge Warehouse itself.

A Governor—with a power of veto similar to that of the President of the United States—will remain as the representative of Britain.

In many sections, Ihla K. bition is the tx*st Barbados h*.. ever had.

We did not have specialists In those days and every plantation was a unit In itself. On the punter of that day, devolved the training and behaviour of all who lived and worked on his estate and the District Agricultural Station* w ere their headquarters In 1846 these District Agricultural Societies were amalgamated Into one General Agricultural Society with meetings hekl every Friday, and the first Exhibition was held at the Market place—14th December 1850. Since then, it has continued •a an Annual event, and few people realised that il is to those grand old Gentlemen who worked and planned for the betterment of Barbados that we owe the success of making this Island the garden of the West Indies. Personally I con only recall some ." ye.-irs of these Exhibitions. from the days when It was held Jj, Harrison College with the Mllftarv Band and soldiers In attendance From Iliese early days. I have been privileged to know some of those Gentlemen and for the last twenty years have assisted. Such eminent men as Sir Fred, erick Clarke, Sir Laurie Pile.

I appreciate the continued drive and energy which is necessary to maintain the high level of productivity essenUal for the well-being of the whole community. But we all know it Is r.it enough.

British brains have been twisted and turned for the "nutty notions" corner of the 1031 Festival of Britain exhibition. Within two weeks of the appeal by FestlvM official Laurie LM for "cranky creations" nation'.s eccentrics have ini dated Festival headquarters In London with concrete evident I of national insanity. One man has invented a staircase with weighted steps which gives the feeling of going upstairs when going down. Outdoing Lee's suggestion to provide exampfes to stand up to the foreigners' idee of the "mad English" another British genius has developed a unique mouse trap maze In rough brick. The mouse Is lured into th" maze by the overpowering smell of ripe cheese and Is diverted into dead ends until It is hysterical Its frantic running stirs up pepper on the pathways causing such violent sneeang that the mouse "bashes its brains out" on the rough brickwork. Then there is a rubber but which deflates "when goinc under low bridges" nnd a smok grinding machine for "grinding smoke if you want your smok' ground." Lee. admittedly something of an c-centrlc himself, does not quite know what to do about the ofTer of a budding "madman" to dry up the skies for the Festival This clever character enclosed testimonials of his ability from several women whose Monday morning wash is never touched by rain, and suggested in n nicely nasty way that If his offer wai not accepted he would make next summer "absolute hell" Another gent with an obvious! fertile brain offered t l( oonatruc a machine 20 feet square 0L sund engineering principles with the sole object of "blowing out matches."

Caribbean Must

Plan Agriculture

Development

ON AREA BASIS

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao, Dec. 7.
()N TUESDAY, the West Indies Conference Com-

mittee
reached by Dr. Daniel

unanimously

endorsed conclusions
Neumark of the Food and

Agriculture Organisation on the “importance of
agriculture in Caribbean economy.”’

He said that despite population pressure on

land, opportunities for

agricultural expansion in

the Caribbean were “very considerable’’.

He concluded that while the greatest poten-
tialities were to be found on the mainland territories
of the Guianas and British Honduras, opportuni-
ties for agricultural devolopment existed on many

islands.
Large

scale expenditure for drainage and clearing

forests, and for building roads was necessary to prepare

potential mainland areas for occupation.

Capital invest-

ment was also necessary for developing unutilised land in

the islands.



Etna Villagers See

Ray Of Hope

CATANIA, Dec. 7.
Hope flickered through three
villages on the heaving slopes of
Mount Etna as dawn showed 4

slackening in ithe terrifying
advance of lava.
After engulfing some houses

lying up the mountain side from
the main body of the village of

Rinazzo, the lava stream had
still not yet reached Milo and
Fornazzo.

Police said some 3,000 people

had stripped their houses of all
movables in the three villages,
and that already a flaming sea
of molten rock had eaten its way
through chestnut groves and
vineyards

The fiow was showing signs of
slackening but officials said this
was due to the conformation of
the ground and not to any abate-
ment in the convulsive vomitings
of the volcano,

Hundreds of tourists were flock-
ing from all over Sicily to watch
villages vanish for ever under
molten rock.

At the present rate of movement
it will take the lava several days
to cover Milo and Rinazzo. The
‘tongue which till late last night
was rolling on to Fornazzo seemed
today to have come to a halt,

—Reuter.



More foodstuffs for local con-
sumption could be produced with-
out affecting production of ex-
port crops. To improve nutrition
it was desirable to encourage
the production of milk, poultry
fish products, and green vegeta-
bles and adequate storage facili-
ties, especially cold storage, were
a necessary prerequisite.

Uneconomic size holdings in
many cases lead to good agricul-
tural land being neglected since
owners unable to make a living
often worked elsewhere.

Anothet handicap
farming was peasants having
land scattered in places far
apart. Re-allocation of holdings
was necessary.

Given transport and marketing
facilities, marginal sugar land
could be turned to dairying or
vegetable growing.

Greater opportunities

to good

existed

for inter-territorial exchange of
agricultural products. In some

eases the possibilities of earning
hard currency in nearby terri-
tories were being lost.

Co-ordinated planning on the
use of land and on marketing
was essential for an area with a
population density and such a
high rate of increase as the Carib-
bean.

Agricultural planning was no
longer feasible in each Carib-
bean territory in isolatton. Poli-
cies and programmes need form-
ulating for the area as a whole
Neumark said.

Crisis

LONDON, Dec. 7.

The British Cabinet discussed
the Korean crisis today at its first
meeting since the start of the

Washington talks.

Officially it was said that domes-
tic matters dominated today’s
meeting, but Ministers were un-

formally of decisions reached by
the Prime Minister and the United
States President in Washington.

The Prime Minister's office at
10 Downing Street, officially de-

nied a newspaper report from
Washington today that Truman
and Attlee had summitted two

problems for study by the British
Cabinet. According to a Washing-

ton report, these were whether
Formosa should be included in
any negotiations with Chinese
Communists and whether an

economic blockade should be im-
posed on China failing any agree-

James Reston, New York Times diplomatic correspon-

two major problems to be settled by British Prime Minister

All other major issues had been settled. The two out-

Leaving Korea

LONDON, Dec. 7.

British Defence Minister Eman -
uel Shinwell told the House ‘of
Commons to-day “quite emphati-
cally there ts no thought in our
minds or in the minds of Amer-
ican authorities of withdrawal
from Korea.”

The Defence Minister was an-
swering questions on the Korean
crisis. Earlier he made a prepared
statement in which he declared’
“We may have to prepare our-
selves for still harder tidings.”



Conservative Member Beverley
ixter asked him for assurate?,

that withdrawal was not contem-

plated.

He also refused to make any
comment when Labour member
Harold Davies said, “Some mem-
bers on Labour benches would
have nothing to do with the affair
if an atom bomb was dropped on
China.”

In his statement Shinwell said
it would be foolish to under-
estimate the size or determination
of Chinese intervention

He said the latest estimate from
General MacArthur’s headquart-
ers indicated that there were now
some 270,000 peasants in contact
with United Nations forces in
Korea.

Nearly 200,000 were in front of
the American Eighth Army in the
west and ‘over 70,000 were attack-
ing the American Tenth Corps in

Republicans Discuss
Dismissal of Acheson

WASHINGTON. Dec. 7

Republican Senate leaders to-
day decided to put before all their
senators a proposal calling for the
dismissal of Secretary of State
Dean Acheson.

Senator Robert Taft, Chairman
of the Senate Republican Policy
Committee of 11, told reporters
this had been the Committee’s de-
cision after an hour and a half
closed door session. He said that
the Committee had not taken any
direct action itself on the pro-
posal put before it by a senator
from New York, proposing they
call oh President Truman to sack
Acheson

Instead, it agreed to call a con-
ference of all 43 Republican Sen-
ators early next week, probably
on Tuesday, for a discussion of
the move as well as broader ques-
tions of foreign and military
political decisions. If Republican
senators agreed to back the de-
mand there was no assurance it
would be met. President Truman
has said repeatedly he had no in-
tention of letting Acheson go

such trade.

Representatives of foreign trad-
ers here said the new orders
amounted to an efnbargo in every-
thing but name.

They predicted a speedy drying
up of the currently small volume
of goods moving to Communist
China

They foresaw probable retalia-
tion on the part of the Chinese in
the form of the refusal by Com-
munist China to ship tin, Tung-
sten ore and other strategic ma-

terials that have been imported
here in growing volume during
\recent months

thought that until a settlement had

Labour Holds Up |

Conscription
In Australia

CANBERRA, Dec. 7

Australia’s Labour - dominated
Senate to-day dealt a severe blow
to the Government’s plang for
compulsory military training for
youths aged 18,

It referred the Bill, which has
already passed through the House
of Representatives to the Select
Committee on an amendment
moved by Labour party leaderr.

Labour opposition in the Senate
also stipulated that the Select
Committee should consist only of
Labour members.

They carried a second amend-
ment to the Bill postponing further
consideration of it until the first
sitting of the Senate in the new
year.

Menzies’ Government intro-
duced a compulsory military
training scheme in its programme,
increasing forces from 20,000 to
50,000 men.

It would train up to 21,000 men
per year at a cost of £7,750,000.
Three groups would be called up
each year the first to be in May,

Sydney Suburb

SYDNEY, Dec. 7.

Shattering explosions rocked the
Sydney suburb of St. Peters early
to-day when fire destroyed a
large paint and chemical factory.

Damage is expected to run into
hundreds of thousands of Austra-

During the three-hour battle to
subdue the flames there was a
threat of explosion from 15,000
gallons of solvent in an under-
ground tank. It could have demol-
ished the neighbourhood

Blasts hurled drums and sheets
of corrugated iron and flaming
debris hundreds of feet into the
air. A few hours earlier £100,000
worth of cotton was lost in a blaze

Panic Sweeps |

Seoul

SEOUL, Dec, 7

Near panic swept through the
South Korean capital today when
the news leaked out that the Gov-
ernment had secretly warned
members of the Assembly to send
their families to the south coast.

An authoritative source said

that the Government warning was
given by the Defence Minister
Shin Sung Mo at an emergency
secret session of the National
Assembly today.
Mo said it was “advisable” that
the families of prominent civil
servants should also be sent to
Pusan, He added that if the Com-
munist armies came south of the
38th parallel the Assembly and
the Government would immedi-
ately transfer there.

A few hours after the secret
session military Price opened the
barriers that had prevented civil-
ians crossing southward over the
Han River which funs through;
the southern suburbs.

In Seoul's main market this eve-
ning a grand piano could be
bought for about half the price o |




a second hand wrist watch of ju-
different quality.

Reassurances from prominent |
citizens that advancing Commun
ists would stop at the 38th paral |



lel went unheeded by the people
of the Southern capital who bit
terly recalled similar FoRaeUranioes |
last June,

Some families who could not
leave immediately began to send
their sons of military age into the
hills to escape the rapidly widen-
ing call up net. |

Chemists reported what prob
ably epitomised as clearly as an
thing else, the outlook of this cily
living anxiously under the shad-
ow of re-occupation—they were

Russia Opposes
Debate On Korea

LAKE SUCCESS, Dec, 7

The Soviet Union objected
today to the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly's Political Com-
mittee beginning a debate on
Chinese-Communist intervention
in Korea.

THe Peking Government dele-
gation sat in the visitor’s seat
in the Committee room and
heard Andréi Vyshinsky, Soviet
Foreign Minister, oppose a sug-
gestion that the present Korean
situation should be given priority

Vyshinsky insisted that the
Committee continue with the
debate which it had already
opened on Soviet charges of
American aggression against
China.

Jean Chauvel of France pro-
posed that the Committee drop
that item and go on to the Korean
situation which he said loomed
as the immediate danger for
world peace

TOKYO, Dec. 7.

GENERAL Mac ARTHUR to-day threw in every

available warplane to lay down walls of fire to
protect American marines and the Seventh Division
isolated in northeast Korea.

Led by bulldozers, marines with British com-
mandos and 10th Corps troops prepared to fight
down the next leg of the Chinese “ricochet road’”’
from the Chosin reservoir area to the east coast.

They went ten miles down the road from
Hagaru to Kotori late last night and linked up with
the rest of the marine division about 15,000 men
all told, to begin the hardest escape move from the
Chinese trap.

BY THE WAY

SEE that an MP. has been

calling for an organised revolt
against dirty trains. He wants,
say, a thousand passengers to re-
fuse to board a dirty train, and
thinks that this would bother the
railway people.

But why should the railway
people care if a thousand travel-
lers having bought their tickets,
refused to travel? They would let
them wait on the platform, and
then bring up a far dirtier train.
By that time the passengers would
be ready to travel in a refuse-cart,
and the: executives could say next

day: “If you travelled in that
filthy train yesterday, what is
your objection to a rather léss
filthy one today?” That would

leave the public without a leg, or
rather platform, to stand on.

BAY WINDOWS
ARE IDLERS’
PLAYGROUND

HE BAY STREET windows|
are still the play-ground for |
many idlers. These windows which |
are supposed to be attractive and/
to add some beauty to that street,
are always in a dirty condition
with bits of paper, tins and rub-|
bish scattered about on the!
ground.

Yesterday an Advocate repre-|
sentative looking at these win- |
dows noticed that grass was grow- |
ing everywhere and the fishing
boats were still there.

The window opposite Jemmott’s
Lane is perhaps the most untidy
of the lot, as hawkers and fisher-
men find it a good site for selling.
Now that the flying fish season is
coming in, it is not an unusual !
sight for anyone to see the hawk- }
ers hustling around trying to get}
their fruit sold.

However, people still use the |
windows at night although —
complained.

The Esplanade is still the
favourite spot for many who need
some fresh air.

SUCCESS

THE - hundredth exhibition has been a
great success.

So great, that it has been now made
abundently clear that Queen’s Park is un-
able to contain an exhibition and fair of
this size. _

Poultry, pigeons, cattle, sheep, goats and
pigs are an exhibition in themselves.

Handicrafts, photos, and needlework are
hardly suited for an exhibition which is
calied agricultural and industrial.

Rum and beer seemed to be the main
industries on exhibit unless furniture
making is included.

The great number of booths suggests
that the word industrial might easily be

altered to commercial with no loss of
accurate nomenclature.

! It. is understood that the Agricultural
Society has many times in the past been
recommended to change the date of the
exhibition to the early months of the year
when there is greater variety of flowers.
At Easter there is no reason why there
should not be sufficient fruit and vege-
tables available for a display as worthy
as that now presented.

But whatever arguments may be adduced

by agriculturalists in favour of the present
season, there is no doubt whatever that the

exhibition suffers far more than it gains
in attempting to exhibit so much in such
cramped quarters,

The work of the artisans and the handi-
craft sections suffer particularly from this

handicap.

| There seems no reason why an exhibition
arranged by industrial and commercial in-
terests should not be held in December
every year at the Princess Alice Playing
Field; while an agricultural exhibition
could be held twice yearly in Queen’s
Park or in other agricultural stations.

| Agriculture in Barbados is’ not a thing
of one month. It follows the cycle of the
Seasons and every month there ought to
be small exhibitions and displays in the
country which will culminate in the two
major displays of the year.

Nothing in these proposals can detract
from the success of this year’s exhibition
and Barbados has once again been remind-
ed of the variety of life and interests that
exist in this small island. It is a subject
for congratulation that they should be
brought prominently into notice each year



“To The Museum”

TODAY there is on exhibition at the
Barbados Museum until the last day of
December an exhibition of photographs,
sponsored by the Barbados Advocate.

The purpose of the exhibition is to show
the public of Barbados the high photo-
graphic talent which can be found and
utilised by the community.

The subject matter of the competition,
which stressed the ideal of historical inter-
est has resulted in the collection of an
excellent variety of pictures which will
help Barbadians to understand more of
the attractions of the island.

The photos exhibited include old monu-
ments, country houses, churches and _his-
toric sites many of which are unknown to
large numbers of Barbadians.

The photos themselves vary from a very
high level of photographic art to that of
the modest amateur. The exhibition caters
for every taste and all the photos submit-
ted to the Advocate have been exhibited
in order to encourage all contestants
equally.

If the Photos are of special interest for
the resident of Barbados their appeal to
the visitor or tourist is irresistible, What
better way of finding out where to go and
what to see in Barbados than a visit to this
exhibition?

There in large-size well-displayed photo-
graphs can be seen in half an hour most of
the places of interest that every tourist
will want to visit. Not even the most per-
sistent explorer will have seen them all.

There is one body in Barbados which
the exhibition will benefit materially.

The Barbados Publicity Committee in its
anxiety to publicise Barbados is always on
the lookout for new and excellent pictures.
This exhibition contains many new and
excellent pictures and there is no doubt
that when the members of the Publicity
Committee visit the exhibition they will
be eager to acquire some of them for dis-
play on steamships, airway terminals and
‘even in the Baggage Warehouse itself.

NOTE





The Hon. V. C
| represented Barbados as an ob-
j}server at the Second Annual
| Meeting of the Caribbean Interim
| Tourism Committce in Puerto
| Rico

At this meeting the first matter
lof business was discussion of the
urgent need of additional tourist
|facilities in the Caribbean and
the lack of capital both for their
development and for their con-
struction. There was also a
full discussion of the need
| fer capital under favouraBle terms
| for tourist construction. Mr
| Wall, who represented the US
| Chamber of Commerce, told of his
trip to England, France and Hol-
jland to urge thes? governments
\to adopt a forward looking plan
for tourist development assistance

their Caribbean possessions,
| ond expressed the belief that th=
| metropolitan governments would
take a greater iricrest in Carib-
bean tourist development. He
irged that this matter be followed
up by the islands conceti.ed with
\their home governments
rescilutious were adopte

covering these matters. The first
one requesis the Caribbean Com-
mission to seek a prompt means
jof obtaining Point IV., ECA and
| United Nations’ technical assjs-
(tance for surveys of specific and
rencral Caribbean tourist develop-
jraent projects, including new
|hotels, fishing and handicrafts.

Gale, M.LC.,

The second resolution called to
the attention of the member gov -
ernments the importance of invest-
ment of local capital and govern-
ment funds under favourable
terms both for improvement of
existing facilities and the devel-
opment of new facilities. It
urged the establishment of at
least one y planned and
expertly managed “pilot plant
hotel in each area

The third resolution aims to
take ful) advantage of the tech-
nicians available in the Carib-
bean area as well as from a
in ¢ ing tourism. It sets
up a C.ILT.C. a panel of
spec alists who will be available
to v sit different Caribbean areas
on :pecifie tourist projects.

Cognizance was taken of the
importance’ of training programs
for hotel and travel personne!
and bases were established for
the exchange of personne] within
the Caribbean.

The principle of joint advertis-
ing of the Caribbean area as the
Americans’ all-year—round re-
crestion and travel] area was
app.oved, An advertising agency
will be appointed to carry out

phasizing its ail-year attractions
with particular emphasi its
virtues in the summer time. The
individual members will continue
to be responsible for the direc
advertising and promotion of
their own areas, the Committee's
program being entirely on an
area basis. Among the promotional
efforts, one or more special trips
for key travel] agents through the
Caribbean area as well as
invitations to travel writers, and
photographers, were agreed upon

Among promotional techniques
the Secretary's report and recom-
mendations of C.I.T.C. support
in founding a Caribbean Amateur
Football Federation with matches
in different islands was approved.
The importance of pecksge
trips” as a means of ceveloping
the all-important summer trips
to the Caribbean was recognize?
and all members greed t
foster these trips fer their
areas either as inividual
tination trips or as o e destinatio:
on trips visiting several islands.
The C.1.T.C. will publish a
list of all such tri for the
Spring, Summer and of 1951
Faith was expressed that with
aggressive individusl and group
methods the transr ‘ation com-
panies, hotels and trave! agents
could make summer business to
the Caribbean even larger thar
winter b :

A strong recommendation was
sent to member governments that
each member island should have
and maintain an official tourist
office with a full time experi-
enced director to develop anda
promete tourism, remindi the
governments that the efforts of
these men would certainly resuit
in increased tourist and tax in-
come to the islands far in excess
of the cost. :

The key role of sea and air
transportation to and through the
area was fully discussed. On the
score of ocean transportation, the
shortage of passenger steamship
service to and through the area
was emphasized, and the steam-
ship companies urged, in
view of their large stake
in Caribbean tourism, to try to
supplement and add to their ex-

ti





own

der-

isting services, particularly in
providing an inter-Caribbean
passenger steamship service on

regular schedule. Air service was
recognised as the volume means
of passenger transportation and
the airlines were urged to join in
a concerted effort in the devel-
opment of all-expense trips and
air cruises utilizing seasonal ex-
cursion fares,

Recognizing the amportance of
events in attracting tourist busi-
ness, ai’ members are furnishing
a list of events of special interest
in their area which will be
releas€d as a T.C. Caribbean
calendar of ew . Chief among
these for 1951 will be a Caribbean
festival protray the art, music,
Gancing and crafts of the Carib-
bean, to be hel@-in the summer
of 1951, probably in San Juan.
A sub-committee report brought
out the great importance of
handicraft production throughout
the ares as an impetus to tourism
and a plan of action was agreed
upon ooking forward to the
development of a major project
t@ further organize and stimulate
handicraft production throughout
the area preserving the native
character of the work

Among other items discussed
and acted upon were: a request
for an authoritative study of the
economic value of tourism; also
a plan for gathering uniform
statistics from all Caribbean vis

A_ resclution authorized the
drafting of a charter for a per-
manent Caribbean Travel Devel-
cpment Association to be circula-
“ed to members for discussion at
ihe next meeting with a view to
cstablishing such organization by
January 1, 1952
The Executive Secretary stated
@nat approximately $10,000.00
would be left over from the 1950
year and the delegates presen
confirmed their payments total-
ling $30,000.00 for 1951, making
an available total of $40.000.00
If Jamaica ($6,000) and Barbados
($5,000) join, there will
additional $11,000.00 available
After full discussion, a budget
allocating $40,000.00 was adopted
with the provision that of any
additional funds received $2,000.00
would go to the Chairman’s con-

A Race is on to Test if “Everyone Loves”

THE MAN IN CELL 9

ACCRA.
In unsleeping Accra the dance
bands and pene eae
blaring tonight, at full v e,
the convent hit tune of Africa's

Gold Coast.

It is a samba-like dance number
labelled on the juke-box list
as “Everybody Likes Kwame

”»

A rvecdy” is lyric-writer’s
licence, for I found Kwame
Nkruma in Cell No. 9 of the
whitewashed prison fort perched
over Accra Harbour. He was
moodily stripping weavers’ cane
in the hard-labour workshops,

Nkruma (pronounce his name
Nek-roo-mah) was one of The Six
Ambitious Men who attempted to
seize power on the Gold Coast in
the riots of February, 1948.

He was leader of the clumsily
and contradictorily named ‘ Posi-
tive Action, Non-Violence, Self-
Government Now” general strike
which collapsed after ten days.

Sedition . . Sasi

Nkruma’s crime was on in
an attempt to anticipate British
plans to give a form of self-gov-
ernment to the Gold Coast,

For to-day, as the barefoot
Nkruma stares through his barred
but glassless jail windows, the
Gold Coast is beginning its first
general election campaign.

I flew into Accra on one of the
hottest days of the year to solve
the Gold Coast riddle: How pow-
erful can a convict be when vot-
ing is going on outside?

The object of the ballot—which
takes place in January — is to
give the Gold Coast a popularly
elected Assembly, the first of its
kind in Colonial Africa.

A Governor—with a power of
veto similar to that of the Presi-
dent of the United States—will
remain as the representative of
Britain,

Briefly, what will happen on
polling day is that 84 members
will be elected to a new central
Legislative Assembly.

A Cabinet of nine—some Euro-
peans, some Africans—will be
appointed by the Governor, and
must be confirmed by a_ two-
thirds majority in the Assembly.

£50 Deposits...

The election will be a fight be-
tween Nkruma’s Convention Peo-
ple’s Party and the moderates,

Nkruma’s party is the only one
organised to fight an election, and
the only one able to find a £50
deposit for all its candidates, Offi-
cially, the C.P.P, has, perhaps,
100,000 members, but the number
of 6d. a month recruits is increas-
ing as the prospect of “jobs for
the boys” gets nearer,

Even this growing membership
—only a minute fraction of the
one anda half million voters
now being registered—gives a
false impression of Nkruma’s
power.

Municipal elections have shown
that the moderates in The five
towns are politically apathetic or
afraid, and most of them stay at
home on polling day. Nkruma’s
party has been able to get land-
slide victories purely by opposi-
tion default.

Vast education campaigns—by
leaflets and mobile cinemas—are
now being conducted to counter
this apathy.

Since many of the population
of the Gold Coast are illiterate,
instructions for getting on the
electoral register have been sim-
plified by the use of pin-men
illustrations.

For example: people are being
told they may vote: (1) If they
are British (a pin-man waving a
Union Jack gets the idea home) ;
(2) If they are 21 (a picture of

By W. A. Crumley

a baptism certificate explains it);
and (3) If they have paid their
levy (for this, there is a little
man holding two bags marke’
with the £ sign).

Dollars .. . “

The daring nature of Britain's
experiment in transferring power
to political novices—and the im-
portance of education in voting—-
is shown by a look at the Gold
Coast’s balance sheet.

Nearly half the world’s cocoa,
gold, manganese, timber, bauxite,
and diamonds—all these help the
Gold Coast to scoop £40,000,000 a
year in dollars into the pool.

I went to see Prison Graduate
Komla Gbedemah, the “strong
man” who, released from jail
eight months ago after a term for
publishing false news, is re-or-
ganising the party for the man in
cell No, 9.

He sat in the absent chairman’s
seat at the three-roomed party
headquarters, Nkruma’s books
still on the desk—a Koran in
English. “Hegel to Marx,” and
Quintin Hogg’s “The Purpose of
Parliament” among them.

He said: “I will say or do no-
thing disloyal to Kwame.”

He realises that the new Con-

stitution is not full self-Govern-
ment; that even were his party
to capture every possible seat 1t
must certainly remain a minority
in Parliament.

I asked if he was prepared to
try to make the Constitution work,
to accept majority decisions in
Parliament.

“It all depends if the Governor
is reasonable about our demands
for full self-government, and

ubout using his veto.”

It depends, too, on Nkruma.
who alone of the 25 fcllowers
still in jail, will not be freed
hefore polling day.

‘Victory’

According to himsei(, 41-year
old Nkruma is a “non-Communist.
non-smoker, non-vegetarian.” He
was a professor of Negro history
in the United States, and a Lon-

don School of Economics stu-
dent-revolutionary.
As he hears his campaigners

marching by and singing “Kwame
Nkruma is behind the prison bars,
but his soul goes marching on,”
the prisoner sings back a new
party anthem: “There is victory
for us.”

The degree of victory depends
on the race now under way. I

Britain’s Colonial Masters

“PAX ROMANA” By Lawrence Waddy, (Chapman & Hall, 15/-) printing magazines.” She concluded _ her

Reviewed by

LONDON.

If in two thousand years hence
a Colonial student of antiquity
looks back to the era of tish
rule in the colonies, what will
he say of those Britishers whose
influence will still be evident?
Will he follow Lawrence Waddy
who, in “Pax Romana” deplores
the failure of the former Roman
masters of England to adapt the
Roman Empire so that it could
survive indefinitely? The en-
during Roman Empire would
have protected its provinces and
its colonies from both the Dark
Ages and the “chaos of modern
nationalism.”

“Pax Romana” is a history of
Rome and its empire from a new
standpoint. It is new because
Mr. Waddy looks to Rome ta
answer some of the questions
that face the world today par-
ticularly the modern anxiety
caused by disunity among nations.
It is new because, though he gives
us an admirable summary of
Rome's political and military his-
tory, he is concerned chiefly with
the ideas and aims of the Romans.
and their limitations, He gives
the layman an intelligible picture
which the specialist sometimes
misses.

To the present-day student of
“Empire” or “Imperialism”
(according to the point of view)
his account of the nature of the
Roman imperial relationship is
fascinating. Rome was able to
introduce everywhere the idea of
“city loyalty” (if it did not exist
already) and, in spite of some
“nationalist” outbreaks, particu-
Jarly among the Jews, she was
successful in preventing the
growth of national loyalties. The
good citizen of the Roman Empire

could feel a genuine loyalty to
his city and to his Emperor,
whatever his own “nationality”
or “race”,

Even in tribal Britain, city life
took roots. The cynical Tacitus
wrote of Agrippa’s “policy in
Britain: “He had the sons of

E. B. Timothy

chieftains educated in the so-
called liberal studies, He
expressed admiration for the nat-
ural ability of Britons, in contrast
to the earnest efforts of Gauls.
And so men who at one moment
turned from the Roman tongue
in disgust, with the next breath

aped our eloquence — the toga
appeared everywhere, and the
allurements of vice. . Little

knowing, they called this ‘civili-
sation’ when really it was part
and parcel of their slavery.” But
to Mr. Waddy two thousand years
later, it is clear that Britain was
better off under the Romans than
she would have been if “free”,

The weakness of the Romans
he finds in their lack of vision,
or ultimate purpose and faith;
their lack of mental originality,
The fundamental weakness of
their empire was the institution
of slavery which destroyed the
empire, but a universal degen-
eration which could afford no
opposition to the barbarian
invaders.

One is disappointed that Mr.
Waddy passes so lightly over the
problem of “colour consciousness”
which plays such an important
role in modern empires and in
the British Commonwealth, at
least, is the chief disintegrating
factor.

Was there any colour discrim-
ination in Rome? Would the
Emperor Septimus Severus, or
Apuleius, author of the “Golden

Ass”, have fourid fame if they
had been “African” or “West
Indian” in the modern sense,
instead of inhabitants of North
Africa and Egypt? Is French
Colonial poticy really that of

Claudius, who considered it “in
the best interests of the Empire
that merit, wherever it is found,
should be transplanted to Rome
and made our own”? One won-
ders too, Why, if slavery was so
fatal to Roman vitality, it

| WILLTAM HENRY FOX |
j 4 i}
| TALBOI |

William Henry Fox Talbot, the inventor |
of photography, was born one hundred |
and fifty years ago in Lacock, Wiltshire, and |
his grand-daughter, Matilda Talbot, recently |
gave a talk about him in a BBC programme. |

She was only six when he died but she re-
members him clearly, an old gentleman with
a kind face and voice, who wore a rather
crumpled long black coat. Little was known
of his early days until she and her sister
discovered a number of letters written by
him in his boyhood. He kept a diary from |
the age of six and it was about this time that ||
he said seriously to his mother, “Mamma, |
Betty (the maid) is very disobliging. I have! ‘
asked her to revolve on her axis and she |
will not.” He went to school first at‘Rotting-
dean and then at Harrow, the famous English | |
public school. At Harrow he studied two}!
subjects which were not then in the school!'
curriculum — botany and chemistry. His|
interest in chemistry became a passion, but |
one day while he was carrying out some|)
private experiments there was an explosion
and an end was put to his work. When Be
was thirteen, he reached the top form, |
and a year later the headmaster recommend- |
ed that he should leave Harrow for, if he),
stayed on, he would have to become Head ,
Boy, a position for which he was too young Li
After two years of study under a private
tutor, he went up to Cambridge University;
and did brilliantly.

Fox Talbot married in 1832 and in the fol-| }
lowing year took his wife to Europe. They!
Stayed in Italy, and he tried to sketch, but
the results were disappointing. He then
used a camera obscura, and traced on paper
the outline of the views shown by it, but
this too was unsatisfactory and led him on
to think of another method of ee
an image. Starting from the knowledge that! {
nitrate of silver darkens under the action of} {f
light, he began to experiment, and within
a year was able to send contact prints to
relatives, who described them as “shadows.”

| Some of these prints had great beauty and|
| delicacy, but he was unable to fix.them and
| had to keep them in the dark, He succeeded
in fixing them later on by using a strong)
salt solution and the next step was to get'
pictures, not by contact, but by exposure in
a camera, Eventually he obtained very small
negative pictures in little cameras which had
been made for him by a Lacock carpenter.
“This,” said Miss Talbot, “was the germ from
which all subsequent photographic work has
developed, for it was a negative and, being
fixed, any desired number of positive pictures
could be obtained from it.” When it became
known that Daguerre in Paris had been able
to produce photographic images, Fox Talbot
also announced his discoveries. Neither man
had any idea of what the other had been
doing and the two processes proved to be
entirely different. Some of Daguerre’s pic-
tures were very beautiful but, unlike Fox
Talbot's photographs, only one picture could
be produced on a metal plate.

Fox Talbot’s “Pencil of Nature” was the
first book to be illustrated by photography
and in it he indicated the use of ultra violet
rays in photography, and suggested its use
as a weapon against crime. Miss Talbot has
many lovely specimens of her grand-



photographic image was transferred to the
sensitised surface of a copper plate and the
plate etched with an acid. After cleaning off
the sensitising medium, any number of
reproductions could be obtained from
printer’s ink. This process was the fore-run-
ner of photogravure, now largely used in

broadcast by saying, “It has been very grati-
fying to see an increased interest in all these
scientific activities of my grandfather’s dur-
ing recent years, and to know that his fertile
imagination and innumerable experiments

have given lasting benefit to the whole of
mankind.”



CANADA DRINKING MORE B.G. RUM

GEORGETOWN, Dec. 5,

British Guiana’s export trade with Canada
reached its peak with Canada last year when
$24,355,000 worth of goods was exported,
according to Mr. Rex Stollmeyer, Trade
Commissioner for the British West Indies,
British Guiana and the Bahamas, now on a
visit to the Colony. The Colony also did
more trade with Canada than any other
British Caribbean colony, Mr. Stollmeyer
said,

Most promising of the exports was
Demerara rum, for which there was a grow-
ing trade.

Mr. Stollmeyer warned that there was
Serious competition developing out of rum
manufactured in Canada from molasses mix-
ed with Demerara or Jamaica rum. This fum
was not up to the standard of genuine Carib-
bean rum, but it was being pushed by one
of the biggest advertising campaigns the in-
dustry had ever known. |

cord number of competitors—28—was held yesterday, and

special prizes were distributed by His Excellency the

Governor.
Business for booth proprietors
naturally brightened, and so did
business for the stalls offering
chances {n Bingo and other games.

The Police Band previded music
for the Gymkhana.

Long dresses, short dresses and
those cf medium length were seen
in the Park, and there was a
wealth of colour and fashion. On
the whole, men’s ties were not so
“hot” as they were last year, but
here and there were wearers of
daring designs.

Those who attended the show
yesterday missed seeing some of
the high quality exhibits of cattle,
swine, sheep and goats, because
the owners always remove them
after the first day. But there was
still much to see and to do, and
the Park echoed with the voices
of people enjoying themselves
until the show ended at mid-night.

Before the special prizes were
Presented, Mr. C. M. Drayton,
President of the Agricultural So-
ciety, made a brief speech. The
Governor then made_ his speech
and the presentation of the prizes.

Mr. Drayton’s Speech:

IN the olden days when trans-
port was chiefly on horseback,
or in carriages where roads exist-
ed, most parishes had District
Agricultural Societies where the
planters of those days used to
meet to thrash out the difficulties
which then existed. At that time,
‘on leaving school at 12 or 14 years
of age, a young man was bonded
as an apprentice on some planta-
tion for two years without salary,
after which h
years work for salaries of $5.00 to
$10.00 a month. During this time
he had to learn practically every
trade in addition to that of agricul-
ture. We did not have specialists
in those days and every plantation
was a unit in itself, On the pianter
of that day, devolved the training
and behaviour of all who lived
and worked on his estate and the
District Agricultural Stations were
their headquarters. In 1846 these
District Agricultural Sccieties
were amalgamated into one Gen-
eral Agricultural Society with
meetings held every Friday, and
the first Exhibition was held at
the Market place—14th December
1850. Since then, it has continued
as an Annual event, and few
people realised that it is to those
grand old Gentlemen who worked
and planned for the betterment of
Barbados that we owe the success
of making this Island the garden
of the West Indies,

Personally I can only recall
some 55 years of these Exhibitions:
from the days when it was held
at Harrison College with the
Military Band and soldiers in at-
tendance. From these early days,
I have been privileged to know
Some of those Gentlemen and for
the last twenty years have assist-
ed. Such eminent men as Sir Fred-
erick Clarke, Sir Laurie Pile,
Major Watson, Mr. Henry Arthur,
and indeed many more, have done
work for Barbados, the value of
which few can realise, Their ex-
amples have encouraged others
to carry on the good work which
you see here displayed today,

The Governor's Speech:

It is over a year since I arriv—
ed in Barbados and one of my
first duties was to be present at
this Exhibition. I was genuinely
and deeply impressed particulariy
with the variety of entries and
the general indications of pro-
ductivity of this island.

as well as world conditions, mak»
it essential that food production
in the island for local consump-
tion must be maintained and in-
creased. With a view to all round
inereased crop production the De-
partment of Agriculture has ob-
j tained an Irrigation Officer and
;is seeking the services of a Cul-
tivation Officer so that further
specialized attention will be paid
to soil improvement and conser-
vation. :
The scheme for the establish-

he would for many | ment of a Central Creamery has

been accepted in principle for
some time and I do regret that
delays on my part in recent
months have deferred final con-
sideration. I hope within a few
days that the discussions will be
resumed. The development of a
dairy industry in Barbados as an
ancillary to sugar production is
entirely dependent on the estab-
lishment of a Central Creame"y
and I hope that land owners will!
be prepared to give every pos-
sible support to the scheme.

In the last twelve months I
have travelled over 6,000 miles in
the highways and by-ways of
Barbados, and although now I
take the.intensive cultivation for
granted, I appreciate the con-
tinued drive and energy which is
necessary to maintain’ the high
level of productivity essential for
the well-being of the whole com-
munity, But we all know it is not
endugh, if the increasing popu-
lation is to enjoy improved stand -
ards of living. I had hoped that

scheme whereby individuals and
others with knowledge and prac-

their small undertakings or of
new minor industries. As I have
said before, it will mean taking
some risks and probably financial
risks which could not be under-
taken by the notmal lending in-
stitutions. ‘
Secondary Industries

I have in mind, therefore, to
set up a Secondary Industries
Board to invite and investigate
applications for assistance for the
promotion and development of
secondary industries in this
Island. 1 would hope as a resui

is recognised by all that a long

West Indies generally is the

most important economic devel-
opment of the century. We now
can look forward—apart from the
disaster of a major war, which I
pray God will be avoided—we
ean look forward for the next
decade to a period with sound
economic foundations and, there-

fore, with a security which has
not previously existed. I believe
the figures for Barbados will

give confidence in their future to
all Barbadians and that we shall
be able to consider a plan of
development with greater confi-
dence than was previously possi~
ble.

Confidence

That brings me to the subject
which constantly is in my

By FRED DOERFLINGER
LONDON.
British brains have been
twisted and turned for the “nutty
notions” corner of the 1951 Fes-
tival of Britain exhibition.

Within two weeks of the appeal
by Festival official Laurie Lee
for “cranky creations” the
nation’s eccentrics have inun-
dated Festival headquarters in
London with concrete evidence
of national insanity.

e@ man has invented a stair-
case with weighted steps which
gives the feeling of going up-
stairs when going down.

Outdoing Lee’s suggestion to
provide examples to stand up to
the foreigners’ idea of the ‘mad
English” another British genius
has developed a unique mouse
trap maze in rough brick.

Panne is lured into the
maze by the overpowering smell
of ripe cheese and is diverted into
dead ends until it is hysterical.
Its frantic running stirs up
Pp on the pathways causing
such violent sneezing that the
mouse “bashes its brains out” on
the rough brickwork.

Then there is a rubber bus
which deflates “when going
under low bridges” and a smoke-
grinding machine for “grinding
smoke if you want your smoke
ground.”

Lee, admittedly something of
an ercentric himself, does not
quite know what to do about the
offer of a budding “madman” to
dry up the skies for the Festival

is clever character enclosed
testimonjals of his ability from
several women whose Monday
morning wash is never touched
by rain, and suggested in a
nicely nasty way that if his offer
was not accepted he would make
next summer “absolute hell.”

Another gent with an obviously
fertile brain offered to construct
a machine 20 feet square on
sound engineering principles with
the sole object of “blowing out
matches.”

This idea was
enough for Lee.

London Boys To
Play Host To
World Scouts

(From Our



Own Correspondent)
LONDON.
Boy Scouts from all parts of
the world are to participate next
year in an International Patrol
Camp to be held in connection
with the Festival of Britain. Tne
Camp, organised by the County
of London Boy Scouts will be
situated at Gilwell Park, near
Chingford, from August 22 to
September 1
So far 44 countries have ac-
cepted the invitation to attend.

They include Pakistan, Ceylon
Malaya, Uganda, Zanzibar, Sierra
Leone, Malta, Gibraltar, Trini-

cad, Windward Islands Jamaica,
Bermuda and British Guiana.

The Pakistan contingent will
eome to London after attending
the World Jamboree in Austria,
being held earlier in August. Be-
fore the camp, they will enjoy
hospitality in the homes of Lon-
don scouts for a week and will
visit the Féstival.

Kenya, Tanganyika and North-
ern Rhodesia have received invi-
tations but it is doubtful at the
moment if they will accept in
view of the holding of the Central
African Jamboree the following
year.

Patrols of six, made up of three
overseas scouts and three London
Scouts, will camp together for ¢
Iweek during the internationnl
gathering in London.

Besides attending tne Interna-
tional Camp, the Overseas Scouts
will have the opportunity of see-
ing an exhibition of Antarctic
expedition relics, including those
of Captain Scott. This exhibition
remains open throughout the
period of the Festival.

A small camp is being set up
within the Festiva! site itself. It
is being manned by Scouts and
other Youth organisations. Scouts
are also taking part in displays
in the open air arena in the week
August 26 to September |

National Voluntary Youth Or-
ganisations, including the Bev

couts’ Association. are staging a
Pavilion of Youth. This will con-
sist of a reception and information
centre, and a hall for exhibitions,

perfecting the machine so that it(demonstrations and dramatic pres-

lights matches as well.—I.N\S.

The Game That's Always Making News

they were in another room playing ...? CANASTA.

CANASTA

CANASTA in Spanish means “a basket”. It is also



the name of the Uruguayan card game which became a
craze in the United States and has gained a firm foothold
on this side of the Atlantic.

The game is said to have been invented by the ladies of
Montevideo in a successful attempt to lure the menfolk
away from their eternal games of Poker.

Canasta is a truly social game, combining the easy
mechanics of Rummy with some of the skill of Bridge and
the bluff element of Poker.

It can be learned in little time

and does not require the vast fund
NS





of knowledge of the complete
ARTIE’S HEADLINE Bridge player.
It may be described as the

greatest boon of all time for the
harassed hostess who never knows
what to arrange for the Browns,
who don’t play Bridge, or the
Smiths who love q mild gamble.

Canasta belongs to the Rummy
family of card games. The main
object is to collect canastas of
}seven cards of-a-kind, suits and
sequences play no part.

Two packs of 52 cards each are
used with the addition of four
Jokers which together with the
eight Twos count as “wild” cards
and can be used at the discretion
of their holder to represent any
other card or a& a stop card to
“freeze” the pack—i.e., to prevent
the opposition gaining possession
of cards previously discarded

The game can be played by two,

the northeast coast. He compared
their fishing grounds to a narrow
belt of water about four miles
thick and following the winding
coastline. “If the fish come in,” he
said, ‘our fishermen work like
dogs and catch them, But if the
fish do not come in, the fishermen
go on the dole.”















Loans To fishermen

Premier Smallwooa spoke of the
Government's plans for moderni-
zation of the fisheries. He men-
tioned the newly formed fisheries
loan board which would be given
from one to five million dollars to
enable fishermen to finance new
and better boats and fishing gear,
and to teach them more modern
methods of catching fish.

He said the Government has
studied fishing methods in other
countries and would soon put some
of these practices into operation
in Newfoundland.

In this connection he said that
next month a boat of the Nor-
wegian type would be launched

The new type boat would
be capable of fishing in all seasons
and with all types of fishing gear,
the Premier said.

The boat is based on the Nor~-
wegian-type fishing craft and can
fish in comparatively rough wa-
ters. It is being built of local wood
at the Clarenville shipyards.

Sixty feet long with a 17-foot
beam and a nine-foot depth, the
boat is 48 gross tons, powered with
a 160 horsepower engine. It will
carry 63,000 pounds of fish with
summer icing and has a fuel cap-
acity for 2,000 miles cruising.

Although not yet officially
named Newfoundlanders are
already calling her ‘“Lukie’s boat”

Dec. 7 ()N TUESDAY, the West Indies Conference Com mittee unanimously endorsed conclusions reached by Dr. Daniel Neumark of the Food and Agriculture Organisation on the "importance of agriculture in Caribbean economy." He said that despite population pressure on land, opportunities for agricultural expansion in the Caribbean were "very considerable". He concluded that while the greatest poten tialities were to be found on the mainland territories of the Guianas and British Honduras, opportune ties for agricultural devolopment existed on many islands. 1 i scaleexpenditure for drainage and clearinR forests, and for building roads was necessary to prepare potential mainland uu for occupation. Capital investment was also necessary fi>r developing unutilised land in the islands. More foodstuffs for local con1 sumption couW be produced without affecting production of exjport crops. To improve nutrllioii ill was desirable to encourag" the production of milk, poultry fish products, and green vegetables and adequate storage facilities, especially cold storage, were .i necessary prerequisite. Uneconomic size holdings in many cases lead to good agricultural land being neglected since owners unable to make a iivin-i often worked elsewhere. Another handicap to good farming was peasants having land scattered in places far apart. Rr-alloeation of holding* was necessary. Given transport and marketing facilities, marginal sugar land could be turned to dairying or vegetable growing. Greater opportunities existed for inter-territorial exchange of agricultural products. In some rases the possibilities of earning hard currency m nearby territories were being lost. Co-ordinated planning on tinuse of land and on marketing wag essential for an area with a B 'pulatlon density and such 3 igh rate of increase as the Caribbean. Agricultural planning was no longer feasible in each Caribbean territory in isolation Policies and programmes need formulaLing for the area as a whole Neumnrk said. —Reuter.
