Russia Controls |
All Oil Mines In
East Turkestan

CAIRO, Dec. 13

The former Governor of Sin-|
kiang Province under Chinese
Nationalists, said here today that
Russia had taken control of
vranium oil and other mineral
Geposits in Eastern Turkestan
which is part of Sinkiang.

He told reporters that since the
Chinese Communists entered East-
ern Turkestan last year, 100,000
Moslems had been killed and mere
than 300,000 detained.

Forced labour had been im-
posed on the population, he added,
to work on airfields, roads and
railways,

The black-bearded ex-Governor,
caressed in smart western clothes,
said he was in Cairo “to enlighten
Moslem peoples about what is
happening” in Eastern Turkestan,

He had already met Premier
Nahas Pasha and other Arab and
Moslem leaders,







He left Turkestan when the
Chinese Nationalists surrendered

in 1949,

He maintains contact with East-
ern Turkestan by underground
movement, he said.—Reuter.

Attlee Reassures
Churchill On Use |
Of Atom |

LONDON, Dee, 13

Frime Minister Attlee is be-
lieved to have informed Winsion
Churchill, Opposition leader, that
President Truman’s assurances to
him on the atom bomb went far
beyond what has been disclosea
publicly, political quarters said
today.

Churchill met Attlee
last night and the
gained here is that he indicated
an absolute understanding hac
been reached on the subject,

The Prime Minister was said
to be satisfied that all countries
fighting together in, Korea would
be consulted before it was pro-
posed to drop the atom bomb.

Attlee is likely to make this
clear tomorrow when he opens the
House of Commons debate on the
Washington talks.

Such a statement will come as
a relief to over 100 Labour mem-
bers, who before he went to Wash-
ington, sent him a letter express-
ing anxiety over reports from
America suggesting that the at6m
bomb might be used,

BRITAIN BREAKS
OFF MEAT TALKS |
WITH ARGENTINA _ |

; LONDON, Dec, 13.

_ Britain has broken off nego-
tiations with the Argentine Gov-
ernment on meat supplies, Food
Minister Maurice Webb told the
House of Commons today,
_ This would cause a_ reduction
in the British meat ration to a
total] value of one shilling — only
two pence more than the lowest
ever reached since the beginning
of the war. It will include two
penny worth of corned beef.

Webb said:

“The Government have con-
sistently refused since July last
to pay higher prices which Argen-
tine authorities had asked for
their meat since they regard such
prices as unreasonable,

Anthony Eden, deputy Leader
of the Opposition, asked if there
Was not any possibility of getting
meat from other sources.

ea by the oil



isiand not beyond the
cultivation, Mr. F,
M.C.P. told
terday

He that it would be
very sad day for the people of
that prosperous community if the
Venezuelans ever were to begin
to refine crude oil.

Mr. Walcott who was one of
the Barbados delegates at the
Fourth West Indian Conference
in Curacao, returned to the island
on Tuesday evening by B.W.LA.

Curacao is an extremely busy
shipping port and during the time
he was there, he had never
looked out on the horizon without
seeing at least one ship coming
or going from the island.

There is in Williamstadt, th»
capital, an _ electrically driven
bridge and that, he said, was a
Magnificent engineering device
which was said to be opened 16

said

Mr. Walcott said that he met
many of the Barbadians working
with C.P.I1.M. in Cufacao and
brought greetings from them to
their relatives and friends in
Barbados.

He also visited the camps

where the B.W.I. workers are liv-
ing and found that their general
spirits and morale were of good
standard. Many of them however.
still yearned after the social
amenities which they could en-
joy in their homelands, but were
prepared to endure the in@onve-
nience of those pleasures for the
purpose of improving their
economic conditions.

He said that he had told some
of the delegates at the Conference
of the population problem in Bar-
bados to find out if there were
any employment opportunities in
any of the areas. He was informed
by Mr. Omar Brown, Chairman
of the Municipal Council of St
Thomas and St. John and leader
of the U.S. Virgin Islands dele-
gation at the Conference that
there were employment oppor-
tunities in St. Thomas for a limi-
ted number of workers in various
fields and he hoped to impress on
the Barbados Government the
necessity for investigating those
possibilities with the appropriate
authorities.

Messrs. Hanschell Larsen are

The Stella Polaris which usually
makes two calls to Barbados each
season, will not be calling here

make a world cruise which will
not include Barbados.

The Mauretania will be making

an 18-day cruise. She _ is
expected to set out from New

February 3, From Barbados, she

MONIQUE DA VA RAMOS.
ee OS.—Died in

Judge Favreau, of Bayonne,
will be asked to read a French
detective novel, “La Dame au
Gardenal,” to decide whether it
gives evidence on how beautiful
20-year-old Monique da_ Silva
Ramos met her death at dawn in
a Biarritz luxury villa 13 months

ago.

Monique’s husband, 26-year-
old Brazilian Joas Carlos da Silva
Ramos, was arrested several

weeks after her death and charged
with murdering her,

‘Overdose of tablets’
theory

Police said there was _ not
enough evidence to show that
Joas had poisoned Monique. He
was given “provisional liberty
with a caution,” while police con-
tinued investigations.

Ramos denied any connection
with his wife’s death and said she
died of an overdose of sleeping
tablets. Two post-mortems failed
to show any traces of poison in
her body,

There is one child of the mar-
riage.

The case was dramatically re-
opened recently.

Rene Floriot, lawyer for Moni-
que’s parents, said he would give
the judge a copy of “La Dame au
Gardenal,” and ask him to decide
whether Monique could have died
in circumstances similar to a
character in the story.

The novel was published in
Paris more than 12 months before
Monique’s death,

Standing before the judge as
principal witness was Dr. Benoist

Faeenda, Biarritz, on

who was Called to
bedside as she lay

of Biarritz,
Monique's
dying.

“La Dame au Gardenal” is the
story of a murder camouflaged as
suicide, Here is a synopsis :—

Jacqueline and Talliot, two lov-
ers, are found almost dead from
the effects of an overdose of gar-
denal, Empty tubes of the drug
are found in their bathroom,

Heroine confesses

A doctor gives the ae strych-
nine, another powerful poison, to
counteract the effects of the gar-
denal.

Strychnine, says the novel, is
the classic medical treatment for
gardenal poisoning.

Jacqueline recovers after treat-
ment, Talliot, her lover, dies. The
police are baffled.

At the novel’s end Jacqueline
confesses that only she took
gardenal. She tells the police she
gave Talliot another poison, which
strychnine would not counteract.

Weary of lover

She knew, she says that strych-
nine was an antidote for gardenal,
and she left the empty gardenal
tubes to lead police to believe that
both she and Talliot had taken it.

She was weary of her lover, she
says, That was why she killed him.

“La Dame au Gardenal” was
written by Roger Boussinot. Law-
yer oriot told Judge Favreau
that novel bore striking re-
semblances to details of the death
of Monique.

[Gardenal is one of the pheno-
barbitone drugs. I¢ is a sedative
drug, sometimes used for epilep-
sy.]

NO DICTATORSHIP

THE net result of Tuesday’s debate in the
House of Assembly is that the House
accepted the wisdom of the Legislative
Council in amending the Bill to establish
a Natural Gas Corporation.

Mr. Adams ungraciously took the oppor-
tunity to threaten “that at the earliest pos-
sible time the powers of the other Place
would be restricted” and called in the
“promise” of an unnamed Secretary of
State for the Colonies which would “be
redeemed at the earliest possible time”.





At the same time Mr. Adams was at
pains to point out that the Government
“was not prepared to take the blame for an
inerease in the cost of living for which
they were not responsible”.

It is time that the public reminded Mr.
Adams that Barbados has inherited a Par-
liamentary system of Government almost
as old as the Mother of Parliaments itself,
and that it is not prepared to surrender its
democratic rights for the rule of a small
number whether they be Socialists, Tories
or members of the Barbados Electors’
Association.

It is time to remind Mr. Adams that he
is head of a political party which neither
enjoys an absolute majority, nor has by
its record in office satisfied the electorate
that it has acted as efficiently as it might in
dealing with the rising cost of living or the
thousands of problems that beset a small
island of 166 square miles dependent for
survival on the skill and application to
work of its 192,000 inhabitants.

It fell to the lot of Mr. Adams as head of
a political party professedly devoted to the
cause of the worker in Barbados, to edu-
cate his followers in the hard economic fact
that only by greater production per work-
ing hour can Barbados hope to acquire ade-
quate revenue to build its social services to
a level which will reflect credit on the ad-
ministration of this island.

This duty Mr. Adams has signally failed
to carry out and to-day the island of Bar-
bados is hard put to make up for the
thousands of productive working hours
lost to the island by irregular and late
attendance at work.

Mr. Adams has made it clear that he
relies for political support on promises of
higher wages to those who join his party.
He has not in any public utterance
attempted to tell either the employer (who
has to pay these higher wages) or the
worker (to whom they are promised) from
what source additional wages are to come.

At a period of time when devaluation of
the island’s currency, restrictions on free
intercourse of trade, post-war shortages of
materials, equipment and communications,
have hit the island’s economy a devastat-
ing blow, there is not one sign of recogni-
tion from Mr. Adams and his party that the
very preservation let alone the improve-
ment of the existing standards of living
depends on the recognition by every work-
er that excessive productive costs must be
reduced to a minimum,

With the talent and skill available in
Barbados, with the excellent educational
facilities which have so far survived, and
with the tradition of public service still
aflicker, there is every reason why Barba-
dos should continue to hold its own as it
has successfully done for hundreds of
years,

But our continued prosperity depends
finally and solely on the utilization
of every talent and every ability in the
community.

Mr. Adams is over sanguine and most
ill-informed if he imagines that an elector-
ate as intelligent as the Barbados working
man and woman will be willing to surren-
der their rights to a small handful of four
men who represent 12 seats in an elected
Assembly of 24.



Disestablishment

To the Editor, The Advocate,

SIR,—The Revd. Mr. Taylor in his recent letter
on the Synod decision seems to be barking up the
wrong tree, for neither disestablishment nor dis-
endowment were the matters at issue before Synod.
What Synod did discuss was simply and solely the
matter of the revision of the Anglican Church Act.
The other two items were dragged in as red her-
rings to frighten the laity in general, and these
tactics were successful. A committee of Synod
meeting a committee of Government could in no
wise have committed either party, and the Synod
decision to avoid even this approach was an out-
standing example of moral cowardice.

_ The suggestion that the Government would act
viciously if the Church asked for the revision of
an antiquated Act was hardly complimentary to

Government. Certainly some “christians” have no
faith in our Lord’s own dictum, “ask and ye shall
receive.” And timidity has never yet been a

Christian virtue. .
Perhaps the most amusing feature of all is the
picture of so-called democratic people (opposed to

autocracy in any form—so they say) handing over
all their liberties on a plate to totalitarianism, for
the Anglican Church Act is nothing but a product
of the totalitarian mentality. But the “people love
to have it so.”

Hail Vox populi! But, of course, it was the Vox
populi that crucified Jesus

Yours truly,
“NON POSSUMUS
Bec. 12th, 1950,

| (An extract from a speech by Mr.
| K. W. Blackburne,, Governor of the
Leeward Islands, speaking at the inau-
guration of the Legislative Council of
the Virgin Islands on Dee. 5, 1950).

The other aay I was looking at
a collection of old Ordinances of
the British Virgin Islands and I
saw with interest that one of the
last acts of the old Legislative
Council was to enact the Appro-
priation Ordinance for 1901—the
Ordinance which provided for all
government expenditure in that
year. I noticed with even greater
interest that the total expenditure
provided for the year amounted to
$4,810 (U.S.). One of the first
acts of the new Council will be
to pass the Appropriations Chdi-
nance for 1951—which will provide
for expenditure of the order of
$150,000 (U.S.). Not only is it an
interesting co-incidence that you
wil meet just fifty years after
your predecessors to consider pre-
cis¢ly the same matter with which
they were then concerned, but also
it is noteworthy to see how gov-
ernment expenditure has increased
in chat space of time.

Some people may say that this
is just an example of the way that
governments always waste money.
I don’t say that there is no waste
in government expenditure in the
Virgin Islands. But I do not believe
thet waste to be extensive—or any
wo.se than occurs with the best
regulated governments in other
parts of the world. No, The major
reasons for this increase in expen-
diture are, first, the way in which
the value of money has fallen
ducing the past fifty years; and,
seccudly, because of the increased
services offered by government in
these modern times—advice and
he’ > with agriculture, public health

services, and education.
It is precisely because govern-
mont in the modern world has so

me ¥ functions affecting the lives
of vhe individual person that a
Le slative Council is so necessary
in .he Virgin Islands to-day, It
gives the elected members—the
chosen representatives of the
people—a chance of expressing
their views on all government
activities and expenditures; and
so it gives the public, albeit indi-
rectly, an opportunity of having—
as they should do—a say in the way
in which their tax money is spent.

You, gentlemen, are entering on
your responsibilities at a difficult
time for the Virgin Islands—at a
tie when government finances
ar: in a poor state. Owing largely
to the failure of the printers in
endon to produce your new
gt. mps in time, your revenue from
the sale of stamps in 1950 is far
below the estimate; and it looks
as though you will end the yea
with a deficit of $59,000 (U.S.)
instead of a surplus of $11,000
(U.S,) as was thought when your
1950 estimates were prepared, It
seems probable that you will have
to depend for a year or two on
direct assistance from the British
Treasury—a sorry state of affairs
not only because it adds many
complications to the administra-
tion of the Presidency, but also
because no one likes to live on
charity. But as some help from
outside seems almost inevitable, I
should like to assure you that the
British Government will be only
too ready to give that help—pro-
vided that we put our case pro-
perly. And that, Honourable Mem-
bers is where you and I come in.
It is for you in your debates to
put forward your views as to what
is needed to solve your difficulties
—and to put forward your views
!in a reasonable way so that people
outside can be convinced of the
justice of your statements; and it
is for His Honour and for me to
see that those views are repre-
sented properly in London.

Before I leave the subject of
financial assistance from His
Majesty's Government, I would

like to say one word more. If the
Britich Government is to give help
to the Co'onies in the future as it
has done in the past, it is for us
in the Colonies to satisfy them

that we are doing our best. No one
likes giving a dollar to a beggar
af that beggar is an able-bodied
man who can find work, And it is
reasonable that the British Govern-
ment should be satisfied by us—
by the Council, by His Honour and
by the Governor—that the people
in the Virgin Islands are playing
their part in the “battle for money”
—that the people are paying as
much as they can reasonably afford
towards the cost of public services

Let me turn from this gloomy
subject of the present, and look
for a moment towards the future.
Here again I know that you have
many difficulties—the problems of
trade and intercourse with the
United States Virgin Islands, the
development of your meat and
livestock industry, the develop-
ment of new lines of enterprise,
and the general improvement of
your public services, The solution
to some of these difficulties lies
beyond the British Virgin Islands,
and I think particularly of the
problem of trade and intercourse
with St, Thomas.

I remember visiting St. Thomas
seven years ago and being told
that the biggest problem of the
British Virgin Islands was the need
for the removal of restrictions on
entry into St. Thomas, I remem-
ber being told that the smallest
launch owner in Tortola had to
complete as many official forms
and documents before entering or
leaving St. Thomas as the Captain
of the “Queen Mary” when enter-
ing or leaving New York. Seven
years is a long time—and I am
dismayed to learn that the prob-
lem is not yet solved, It is, as this
length of time suggests, a very
difficult problem. It is natural that
the United ‘States Government
should be reluctant to amend the
laws controlling immigration over
its whole vast continent just to
meet the special case of the Virgin
Islands—and there are other com-
plications as well. All that I can
say is that His Honour has in the
past done his very best to over-
come these difficulties, and that he
and I in the future will continpe
the struggle. We are both meeting
the Governor of the United States
Virgin Islands and his officials
tomorrow to discuss the problems
of immigration and trade, and we
shall see that your case is put as
forcibly as possible both to the
authorities in St. Thomas and to
those in Washington, Alas I cannot
promise results — I can only
promise that we will have a very
good try to get them.

In the meantime there are other
matters which will, | hope engage
your attention in your efforts to
improve the economy and_ the
wealth of your islands. You have
available to you £53,000 under the
Colonial Development and Welfare
Acts which must be spent on use-
ful work before the end of March,
1956, Valuable preliminary work
has already been done by a local
Committee to determine the best
way of using this money; and help-
ful recommendations have been
made by the Agricultural Adviser
from the Development and Welfare
Organisation in Barbados, who
visited you recently. I understand
that you still need further techni-
cal advice on engineering prob-
lems—roads and so on—and I hope
that the Construction Engineer
from Barbados will soon be visiting
you to give this help. It will then
be possible for a final Develop-
ment Plan to be drawn up. And the
sooner the better, not only so that
work can begin, but also that the
Virgin Islands may not lose any
chance of getting a share of the
further help wh'ich has just been
made available by the United
Kingdom Parliament—which voted

only last month a further grant of
£20,000,000 for development in the
Colonies. Whether the Virgin
Islands is able to derive any bene-
fit from this further grant depends
largely on the preparation of a
sound Development Plan.

It would be presumptuous for
me after only three days in your
beautiful islands to attempt to
describe the many other matters
which call for attention. I have
merely mentioned three — the
financial position, trade and inter-
course with St. Thomas, and the
Development Plan, because they
are matters which call for co-op-
eration and help from outside. I
ean promise no complete answer
to your problems, and I can
promise no Utopia for the Virgin
Islands. But I am confident that
much can be done, not only by
government, but also by private
enterprise.

As regards private enterprise,
I am delighted to learn of the
establishment of your Livestock
Producers’ Association. You al-
ready have a fine reputation for
ship-building—ang other develop-
ments will no doubt come as wel!
—sponsored in many cases, I hope,
by Virgin Islanders, who have
always been noted for their enter-
prise. I suggest that more pros-
perity can be brought to your
islands by the development ot
facilities for visitors, and I hope
that you will be willing to pass
legislation—such as exists already
in several ther Caribbean
Colonies—which will assist private
enterprise to develop tourist and
hotel facilities. You need have no
fear of your islands being dese-
crated by hordes of tourists in
strange attire, but I do believe
that your beautiful waters, your
lovely scenery and your compara-
tive isolation can offer attractions
for visitors of the best kind.

But private enterprise cannct
flourish unless the government
provides adequate basic services;
the government itself cannot play
its part unless it has the support
of the public. That is why both the
Secretary of State and I welcome
the establishment of this Council.
It is for the Council to represent
public opinion and to guide and
assist the administration in its
work. It is a task which is
absolutely fundamental to the
development of the British Virgin
Islands. And here. 1 will venture
to repeat what I said in my in-
augural address in Antigua on my
first arrival in the Leeward Islands|
three and a half months ago on
the subject of criticism.

It is a common practice in many
countries of the world, including
the Leeward Islands, for the
public to sit back and blame the
government for every ill, Now I
believe—given certain conditions
—that such criticism is a very
good thing. Governments are
staffed by human beings, and no
human being is infallible. So
governments often do make
mistakes, and criticism is very
helpful to prevent such mistakes
and to spur the administration on
to greater efforts. To that extent
criticism is an excellent thing.
But it can be a soul-destroying
instrument to a people if it binds
them to their own responsibilities
—if it blinds them to the facts
that government can only do
what it can afford, that hard work
by all the people all the time is
the only sure way of improving
conditions, and that unless the
wealth of a country is increased
its government cannot afford to
do more.

So let us have criticism; but let
it be constructive criticism which
realises that some of the responsi-
bility rests with the public and
with the critics; and above all let
it be informed criticism, based
not on rumour but on a proper
knowledge of the facts.



A Baby Submarine Was Sent By
Diplomatic Post=

And an Atom Bomb Isn‘t any larger

By CHAPMAN PINCHER

Enough atom bombs to cripple
Britain’s defences could be
brought into this country without
the knowledge of police, Customs,
or the Secret Service. I confirmed
this when I questioned the Foreign
Office about the control over “dip-
lomatic freight’—a term which
covers packages sent between Gov-
ernments and their diplomatic
representatives abroad.

The Foreign Office says that
Britain’s defence against treachery
in the use of this diplomatic privi-
lege is “our trust in the honour
of the foreign countries with which
we have diplomatic relations.”

Could any weapon the size of
an atom bomb—which weighs four
tons—really be smuggled in among
us if that trust were betrayed?

A feat almost identical
already been achieved.

An official report recently re-
leased discloses that the Italians
smuggled six weapons, each as
heavy as an atomic bomb, into a
foreign country under their diplo-
matic seal during the war.

Smuggled

These weapons, which were mid-
get submarines of the type known
as two-man torpedoes, were
smuggled across Europe to the
Spanish port of Algeciras, near
Gibraltar,

They were used in raids against
Gibraltar harbour and sank at
least six big ships.

British authorities are satisfied
that the Spaniards did not know
the torpedoes were being smuggled
into theig- country, The Italians
declared that the crates containing
the torpedoes were filled with spare
parts for repairing a_ scuttled
Italian ship.

Their word was accepted simply
because the crates bore the Italian
Foreign Office seal.

To me all this adds up to a
terrifying situation. By current
international agreement there is no
fixed limit to the size and weight
of freight which a foreign country
can bring into Britain under its
diplomatic seal.

It follows that crates big enough
to carry the parts of an atom bomb
would automatically short-circuit
the Customs, if brought in by a
foreign diplomatic courier.

Loophole

devised by our security authorities

for examining foreign freight are

carried with 100 per

screen will still be wide open to

Pearl Harbour should surely
have taught us what the honour

of Totalitarian States is worth,
Japanese diplomats, remember,
were negotiating in Washington

at a moment bombs started falling
on helpless U.S. warships.

More precisely, we can gauge
the value of Communism’s diplo-
matic honour from the Russians’
flagrant use of their embassy in
Ottawa as a spy agency, as dis-
closed at the Dr. Alan Nunn May
‘trial of 1946.

Restriction

The only secure defence against
diplomatic sabotage would be for
the Foreign Office to restrict privi-
leged imports by embassies to the
proper diplomatic bags. These are
kit-bag-sized containers in which
confidential documents are carried.

All other packages addressed to
embassies should be liable to
security and Customs scrutiny,

FIVE QUESTIONS
made urgent by the Page One
war news

@ What types of atom bomb
are available in America for opera-
tional use? There are large stocks
of the Mark I type used at Hiro-
shima and Nagasaki. Surveys of
the damage they did in Japan and
at Bikini rate each bomb as effec-
tive as 2,000 tons of T.N.T. “block-
busters.” There are also stocks of
a Mark II bomb of greatly improv-
ed design and about five times as
powerful.

Lower-powered atom bombs for
localised use cn the battlefield can-
not be made.

@ What would be the atomic
bomb's value as a field weapon
against troops in Korea? Very little
in my view. An atomic bomb is
essentially a giant incendiary. It
is, therefore, suited mainly to
attacks on large cities and indus-
trial centres.

GRANDMAS WAIST

To Use Atom Bomb |

By Frederick Cook oy

New York.

MANY hundreds of men in the United
States air force now know how to prime
and handle an atom bomb. It is disclosed in
Washington for the first time that a secret
training programme has long been under
way and is now gathering momentum.

Those trained already include members of
the Strategic Air Command, who are con-
tinually flying Superfort bomber missions
simulating those they would undertake if
war should come.

These crews, it is strongly indicated, now
have a pretty accurate idea of what their
actual targets would be in real war.

Air force officers in Washington reveal
that about 150,000 men (nearly a third of
the total air force strength) are involved in
varying degree in the atom bomb training
programme.

Soldiers and sailors are receiving very
similar training, but in smaller numbers.

Eventually, a knowledge of how to prepare
handle and drop an atom bomb will be part
of every Service man’s military education.

MORE IN THE KNOW

These developments were brought to light
after Mr. Gordon Dean, chairman of the
Atomic Energy Commission, had stated in a
Washington interview that since the Gov-
erament now had “a large force’ being
trained in the use of the atom bomb it was
inevitable that the circle of people having
access to atomic information had to be wid-
ened.

Nevertheless, said Mr. Dean, it still re-
mained true that only a very few knew
how to make an atom bomb.

A high-ranking officer, commenting on
Mr. Dean’s statement, said frankly: “It is
the Air Force’s objective to train everyone,
at different levels, to use this weapon.”

Specialists are being trained in “priming”
the bomb — which apparently means install-
ing its firing mechanism — and in handling
it before and after primin iB

18-MO COURSE

Such men must undergo 18 months of
rigorous training after their general educa-
tion is ee There are already “hun-
dreds” in this classification.

Just how many hundreds is still a military
secret.

Trained in much more detail are 16 nuclear
physicists, all of whom hold doctorates and
are Air Force officers.

These men, the elite of the programme,
are working at Los Alamos, New Mexico,
where the first atom bomb was exploded
experimentally.

Eighty-five officers are attending schools
where some will take doctorates and the rest
Master of Science degrees.

GENERALS, | TOO

Sixty more officers will be enrolled in such
schools shortly.

Many hundreds of other ranks are being
given advanced courses in electronics and in
mathematics up to calculus.

Among the officers it is revealed 75 per
cent. of the Air Force generals and almost
all the staff officers at headquarters in Wash-
ington, have now undergone special courses.

Fourteen hundred officers have been given
advanced instruction at a special school in
the New England mountains.

FEW! KNOW SECRET
_ Little highly technical information is being
imparted to officers who might be taken
prisoner.

Their training is confined to how and
where to use an atomic bomb and its effects
when dropped.

They know virtually nothing of manufac-
turing processes,

Secrets of manufacture are still confined
to the handful working behind the wire in
the New Mexico desert.

Ry Fred Doerflinger

LONDON.

British fashion expert and authoress Doris
Langley Moore today exploded the myth
about grandma’s “wasp” waistline and
claimed that “Victorian waists were no
smaller than ours.”

The small-waisted legend got around, she
said, simply because a small dress, a pair of
shoes or gloves have a tendency to be pre-
served—fewer people wear them.

British actresses Googie Withers and
Coral Browne with an average 25—26
waist fitted “quite easily” into Victorian
costumes for Mrs. Moore’s “Vista of Fash-
ion” show at London’s New Theatre on
December 5.

“For film stars Margaret Leighton and
Margaret Lockwood with 22 inch waists,
actress Joan Tetzel, authoresses Marghanita
Laski and Mrs. Robert Henrey the costumes
had to be taken in,” she declared.

Mrs. Moore further asserted that not only
were women’s waists as small as in Vic-

torian days but women today, in fact, keep }}})

slimmer for far longer than the Victorians.”

Mrs. Moore explained that in the days
when the prim and straitlaced Queen Vic-
toria ruled Britain a woman of thirty with
two children considered herself, and behaved
like, a sedate matron.

Today a woman of that age feels that she
is just reaching the “peak of her attractive-
ness.”

“Women are much more active today and
their entire attitude has changed. Social
activities today are also a far cry from what
they were in Victorian days.”

The emancipation of women is not the
only reason for slim waists today. Said Mrs.
Moore:

played a big part too.’—INS,

vided to eat and drink,” the Com-
missioner said.

The first party of this type was
held last Christmas, On that oc-
casion the children took a keen
interest in the Shetland pony
rides.

OTORISTS should have no

parking worries over the

Christmas period. The Commis-
sioner said yesterday that there is
generally space at the Jubilee
Gardens for parking, and that
more space has been provided in
Trafalgar Square.

“Now that it has been arranged
for the Fontabelle "buses to use
the Probyn Street "Bus Stand for
a certain period of the day, mo-
ftorists can now park their cars
at Beckwith Place in the space
which these buses once took up,”
he said. |

Fifty Children

Centre

The Black Rock Baby Welfare
League was founded 30 years ago
by Mrs, St. Clair Browne who
was also the first president. Af-
ter Mrs. Browne, Mrs. M. Han-
schell, M.L.C. became president,
but she relinquished this post
after being appointed member of
the Legislative Council. Mrs, N.
G. Daysh is the, present. presi-
dent.

The object of thé League is to
help people from the surround-
ing district with their children
and on some occasions mothers
come from as far as St. Thomas
with their children.

The child is examined by the
doctor and if it is found to be
ill he prescribes the medicine
The mother then takes the
prescription to the General Hos-
pital where she is given medi-

cine. The League pays for this
medicine. Children are also given





cod liver oil, milk, food yeast
and any other thing that the
doctor considers essential.

Mrs. N. G. Daysh, told the
Advocate yesterday that for-
merly the League was mainly
concerned with nutrition but
now the greatest call is to advise
the mothers on how to feed,

elothe and bring up their chil-
dren properly.

The visiting periods are on
Tuesday and Saturdays. A doc-
tor and a trained nurse are there
to give advice.

During this year the attend--
ance has increased and from
about 50 to 70 children now visit
the clinic twice a week. The up-
keep of the clinic depends main-
ly on the £250 from Govern-
ment and the £150 from the St.
Michael Vestry, Donations are
also received from firms.

At the party yesterday after-

noon each child was_ given
enough material to make a gar-
ment, ice cream, sponge cake

and a balloon.

onting” rahi betes Large Advertising Signs Six Months

To Be Discouraged

THE SECRETARY of the Chamber of Commerce wil!

interview interested business houses with a view to
ling their co-operation in prohibiting the erection of large
advertising signs about the country districts.
sion was taken by the Council of the Chamber of
merce at their meeting yesterday.

This matter of advertising signs
and hoardings was brought up by
Mr. Trevor Howring at the last

Quarterly General Meeting of the One of a committee appointed to}

Chamber. He gave as his opinion
then, that the erection of — these
signs and hoardings about the
island was rapidly spoiling the

scenic beauiy of the island and
was being adversely commented
upon by visitors

It was decided that the Cham-
ber should call a meeting invit-
ing interested parties including
a member of the Civic Circle to
discuss the matter and if possi-
b'e arrive at some solution.
_This was referred to the Coun-
cil who discussed the matter
yesterday. The President Mi:
D. G. Leacock Jnr., who return-
ed to the island a short while
ago, told the members that frorn
the Minutes of the Quarterly
Meeting he gathered that the
Chamber was to try to get ihe
big advertising hoardings abol-
ished by the mutual consent of

Mr. D. A. Lucie-Smith said
that he wanted to know if Bar-
bados was any different from
other countries in respect of these
advertising signs. He could not
see what was the objection to
these signs. He disappoved of
unclean gutters in Bridgetown,
broken down houses and the like.
but he definitely did not sce any
hoardings spoiling t he = scenic
beauty of the island,

Scenic Pride E

Mr Trevor Bowring
what would be the position if
rival firms began to erect the big
advertising signs one saw nowa-

asked

days, on opposite sides of each
other. Such large signs did, in
his opinion, spoil the scenic

beauty of the island. He thought
it was a case where the Gov-
ernment should in the interest
of the community as a whole and
of the people who had some
scenic pride—step in and put o
stop to it.

Mr. Leacock said that as a/re-
sult of the Town and Country
Planning Act in England, : these
advertising hoardings were being
slowly removed, Signs on shops
were not affected at all, but the
big hoardings along tiie country-

side.
Mr A. R. E. King said that
what 1. thought was wrong in

connection with the matter they
were discussing, was the menticn |
of the word “hoarding”, The
number of hoardings in the
island were very few. If Mr
Bowring was referring to signs
on shops that was a_ different
matter, but to say there was ;
large number of hoardings about
the country districts was, in his
opinion, cue incorrect. Ags a!
matter of fact it would appear
that some people did not under-
stand what was meant, i

Mr. Bowring said that he
not think there was any misuf-
derstanding. At the Quarterly
Meeting the motion he had made
was amended and accordingly was
made not to include signs on
shops but big advertising signs as
in a field and along the country-
side. He would tell Mr, King
that quite a few people were in
agreement with his (Mr. Bow-
ring’s) opinion.

Legal Arrangement Unlikely

Mr. A. R. Bryden said that at
the meeting it was pointed out
there was no likelihood of get-
ting a voluntary or legal arrange-
ment prohibiting a man_ putting
a sign on his shop. When it came
to the big advertising signs along
the countryside, nowever, it wes
felt that a small committee might
interview the parties concerned
with a view to getting them ad-
vertise in some other form.

The view was finally expressed
by some of the members that
the Secretary of the Chamber
along with some member of the
Civie Circle should interview the
parties concerned about the mat-
ter. Some felt however, that it
was a matter which the Cham-
ber should undertake to look
after themselves. The latter sug-

Breakfast Hour

Concern had been expressed at
a Special Meeting of the Chamber
over the Regulation that an as-
sistant could not be employed for
more than 44 hours from the time
of commencing duty, without at
least an hour for a meal. Some
thought that the term ‘“commen-
cing duty” might entail) giving
some assistants two hours in a day
if the breakfast hours were stag-
gered.

A letter from the Acting Finan-
cial Secretary was read to the
members of the Council yesterday,
informing them that as regards
the inquiry of the Chamber about
the deep water harbour, that mat-
ter was at present receiving the
attention of the Governor-in-
Executive Committee

Another letter from the officer
who had been acting for the
Colonial Secretary before his ar-
rival to the colony, referre: to the
public holiday that had been given
on the arrival of the West Indies
cricketers in this island.

It was in reply to the Chamber's
view about this holiday, and stated
that under ordinary circumstances
the Chamber's views would have
been sought and given full weight
in the deliberations of the Execu-
tive Committee. It was pot possi
ble, however, having regard to the
short time at their disposal, to
consult interested parties.

From the ring, bedecked with

Humphries—grudgingly using a

Tex Rickard, who was fondly
booed by the crowd.

The new Garden was Rickai d's
dream—built on
old streetcar barn with $5,000,905
loaned principally by 600 mil-
lionaires. It was the latest word
in sports arenas and remains ‘\¢
most famous indoor sports cite: cl
in the world.

Main Aitraction

For the main attraction on |i
first boxing card that night of
Dee. 11, 1925, Rickard had P.u!
Berlenbach defending his li h!
heavyweight champions!ip
against Jack Delaney

Contemporary accounts indic ite
that the bout set a high stan-
dard of action for the future
fight cards that were to pou

more than $15,000,000 into ihe
garden coffers. Said one vre-
porter:

“Both of them were bleeding

at the finish. Both of th m

linquished the title
»His boxing career
1928, when he retired from the
ring to enter business. Delaney |
died of cancer two years ago.
Ups and Downs
As for Madison Square Garden

petered out in

the “New” Garden has been
through its share of ups and
downs Richard designed it for
boxing alone—designed it so well

that ry seat has an unobstruct-
ed view of the prize ring but many
are poor for other sports

3ut the big arena has been used
for almost everything in addition
to boxing. It has been the seene
of every sport from dog shows to
hockey and six-day bike racing
It has been home to circus, rodeo
and to political conventions.



The post-war boom in _ sports
attendance prompted plans tor a
new garden—a $25,000,000 enter-
prise with seats for 25,000. But

now the boom has passed, building
costs are prohibitive, and it looks
like the present Garden will re-
main the mecca for indoor sports-
men for many years to come.,

Shs fell into a pond near Riee< St Philip Necessary Precautions You may reasonably ask yourselves, whv has all this trouble been taken, so far. on account ol a suspected case'' I reply it is to take all necessary precautions which we have at our disposal, to ensure as far as is humanlv possibly, that a cane may not occur in the community. This precaution Is deemed as being further advisable, some of :he main reasons being: — 1 The best form of defence Is to attack, especially so In this problem; 2 The peculiarities of small pox. generally, this disease as you know, is one of the most htghlv Infective of infectious diseases and U therefore highly 'catching": 3. The unfortunate fact that the population generally In this Island must be considered, from my point of view —and despite my exertions to the contrary—to have too many people in it who have not availed themselves of vaccination during the last few years and who arc therefore not protected. 4 The fact that medical science has made available to us. as a well-proven means of protection for any Individual.— "small pox vaccination" and the quicker this protection is given to us in any threat to public health by this disease. the better are the chances. of :i Successful outcome So far. the protection already given In Ih itstanfl li limited becauJp of the short tuna aim arrival and I deem it as very necessary to extend this protection immediately to the whole City of Bridgetown. This Is advisable as in our population there is no barrier between the port of Bridgetown and the Bridgetown area with Its surroundingsI do not think it necessary in the Immediate present set up vaecination Centres in the Country district as generally the people living there have no direct contact with the Port. Such extension of vaccination centres remains for the decision later, this is not to say that any person in any part of the Island cho wishes to have small pox accinatlons should not apply for it to his local doctor. Vaccination Centres The Vaccination Centres will be as follows: — 1. The office of the Direct M e d i Wharf. 9 a.m. to S p 2 Parochial Buildings. Cumherlond Street. Bridgetown. hours 9 a.m. to S p.m. 3 Queen's Park. Bridgetown, hours 0 a.m. to $ p.m. 4 Police Station. Bav Street. Further Centres may he started from dav to dav. but notice will l>e given in the Press Small Pox Vaccination Service Is free. I repeat free -to anyone unending these I %  As there are thousands of people resident In this tnra—it is necesaarv to five precise instruc%  Id l-e im%  is m this 2. R is further abeoi"'and the community, that those people who have never b. .mated should k*n done Immediately In this regard those who go to their persona. are free U> do MJ. but t centres will be speciaU] and no nine will i>e wasted in aattim 'i-u v.irtinated 3 Babies and children sidered to te of BDCeia] interest, and these should be mated immediately. 4 The next class of people should avail then.lea of vaccination are those win have not been vaccinated within UM last 3 i. >' || considered thai lion becomes less and less after this 3 year period. .*> Those people who have beei vaccinated within the last 3 years, and who have in then possession a certificate of Va.uuation satisfactiii \ |o me need not rush for vaccination, but it is generally advisable that they he revacei noted. C>J Deration I remember last year after the rful ilood of September 1st. having offered protection to the people of the flooded areas of Bridgetown, and this service received magnificent co-operation from the people In fad 3,000 people were protected at that time against the disease—Typhoid Fever — which i thieatened us. This proved nc. if pii">r were needed, of the remarkable common sense and oi the inHipie of this ind 1 no am a/all %  wara thai the appeal SrbloB now lake will meet with that same dm comroo n ae n— i corporation, but indeed in a much larger measure. One Anal word Than M need foi alarm, it is time enough to get alarmed should the circumstances warrant it, but there is real need for attention to my Which have for their object the protactftOB and safety of all of you who live in this lovely Island of Barbados. A short word about small pox vaccination I tse lf, part of which I am now about to say has special reference for vaccinators It means this — after your arm is cleansed and this need be only by soap and water, and then plain water and allowed to dry, a little special liquid vaccine is place,! id i, punctured into the skin by a needle. This is painless. The procedure for doing this varies, but the vaccinators know their Job and it is the best method which I require, Return to Centre The vaccination must be Inspected on the 4th and 8lh day %  0 please return to ihe Centre hese days. It is most advisable for all who go to one Cctiire Uj return to that same Centre. At period varying from 2-10 days reaction stppears in the arm hich is good for you. this gradually settles down. Very, very rarely does one feel III from it—possibly a little soreness or %  wnaas, sometimes a little headache or feeling out of sorts for a day or two. Nothing to prevent one except In the rarest of occasions from carrying out the dally work. But look at what you get in return — a protection from one of the most serious diseases known to mankind, and from whose threat iklnd In any pan of Ihe world has at present no real securitv except by vaccination Sale of lni.
