CHRISTMAS
GREETINGS

From M.S.

‘A Resident in Barbados)
RECENT “Life” edi-
torial began with these

words:— “Democracy is a
lot of people _ .

This phrase breaks up the
solid mass called “Democ-
racy” into a crowd of men,
boys, women, girls, babies,
grandmas and grandpas, each
different from the other in
age, appearance, disposi-
tions, education and earning
ability, Some are good look-
ing, some ugly, some shabby,
some well dressed, some
sickly, some healthy, some
smiling, some scowling. This
mixed crowd of individuals
makes the group we call
“Democracy”.

Nations too are mixed
crowds — a lot of people.
Take Britain. In it there
are blondes and brunettes,
thieves and philanthropists,
snobs and friendly folks,
socialists and conservatives,
some are lazy, some ener-
getic, some courteous and
some rude, It is impossible,
to make a correct generali-
zation such as “The British
are conservative.” Britain is
not a merged mass with a
common mentality, com-
mon character or common
ideals. It is impossible to
generalize about China,
India, Russia, Germany or
U.S.A. It is folly to try and
lump nations into one solid
body and then label them.
Nations are a lot of people
and people are different.

The same is true, if we
stop to think of it, of Insti-
tutions, Classes and Races.
“The Church” is a lot of
people bearing little or no
resemblance, even on points
of doctrine or performance.
“Government” is a lot of
people of varying capacities
and opinions working with
different motives. ‘‘Capita-
lists” are a lot of people
with no common character-
istic, not even the possession
of capital or the desire for
it; “Labour” is a lot of men
and women, some working
hard, others loafing, some
educated, some __ illiterate,
some living in fine houses,
some penniless, The “White
Race” is not uniformly intel-
ligent, honest and unselfish.
Every type of mind and
body and ‘character is found
beneath a white skin. The
“Brown and Black Races”
are not uniformly intelli-
gent, honest and unselfish.
Every type of mind, body
and character is to be found
beneath Bleck and Brown
skins,

A little reflection will con-
vince us that because a man
is born in Brazil he is not
necessarily greedy or gen-
erous, timid or daring,
effi tape ne cawalase Tea other
words — geography has
nothing to do with the per-
sonal quality of a man.
Neither have bank-balances,
skin pigments or school
certificates.

It is easy and convenient
to generalize, to remark that
Americans are rowdy, Chi-
wese are backward, that
Capitalists are exploiters, or
(if we are Capitalists) that
Labour is greedy. Actually
none of these statements is
true. No one trait of char-
acter is shown by every
American, every Chinese,
every Capitalist or every
Labourer. To estimate peo-
ple correctly, each man must
be judged individually on
his own merit.

Men and women of intel-
ligence, integrity and cour-
age, who are interested in
something beyond their own
profit and comfort, are scat-
tered around the globe, If
their location were shown
by red dots—the map would
be aglow, There would be
dots in Greenland’s outposts,
in African jungles, in vil-
lages of Japan and of India;
in the Coane a toed
the steppes of the Cau .
on the ranchos of the Argen-
tine. These men and women
are behind plows, sewing
machines, polished desk
tops, engine throttles, school
desks, wash tubs, silver tea
trays and pulpits, They are
busy making straight seams
and square deals; they fork
deep and measure true. They
face the music of their mis-
takes. They are concerned
with the other fellow’s trou-
ble. They persist. Theirs is
the outward gesture, out-
ward from the pocket, out-
ward from the mind, out-
ward from the heart, out-
ward to the nearest person
in the house, outward across
the street} and across the
seas, These are the aristo-
crats of the spirit and they
are to be found everywhere

Christmas time is a time
of mental generosity, a good
time to mellow our judg-
ments and grow more
divinely just, so that through
the year we will look at

men and women clear-eyed,
seeing each individually,
siving respect where it is
due, regardless of nationali-
ty, race, color, creed or class.

‘Against U.S.

_ Decision

\ LONDON, Dec. 19.
RITISH businessmen with

trading interests in the
Far East are protesting vigor-
| ously against the American
‘decision to restrict trade with
, China and Hong Kong.
The British Government has
also taken up the matter at
the highest level following
the statement from the Hong
Kong Government calling for
i“the strongest _representa-
tions” to the United States
Government.

The Colonial Office is in consul-
tation with the Kong Kong Gov-
ernment to decide what steps
should be taken in’ view of the
American action and to discuss
the possibility of working out a
compromise solution. Meanwhile
the Hong Kong Government’s re-
quest for top level British inter-
vention on their behalf is receiving
the attention of the Foreign
Office.

There is, however, every indica
tion that the United States will
remain adamant. In’ fact, several
Britis h businessmen to-day
admitted they held out little
hepe of influencing the American

decision.
On Record

Their purpose in protesting to
the British Government was to
ensure that their views on the
subject were on record and would
be taken into consideration if other
fovernments pressed on America
to take similar steps to restrict
trade with China

It is considered almost inevita-
ble that the United States Govern-
ment will follow up their action

Sugar Price
Will Be
Fixed Today

(From Our Own Correspondent)
LONDON, Dec..19

The price for the 1951 West In-
dies sugar crop is expected to be
fixed to-morrow. Discussions have
already been proceeding for the
past couple of days.

Informal meetings have taken
place between representatives of
colonial sugar producers and
Prime Minister Hanlon of Queens-
land, Australia, Representing the
West Indies is the West Indu
Committee.

Other colonies are represented
by Sir Phillipe Raffray (Mauri-
tius), Mr. H. R. F. Watson (Fiji)
and Mr, Roger Norton (East
Africa).

To-morrow these representatives
meet the Food Ministry to finalise
price arrangements for all terri-
tories next year. West Indian
producers may be interested to
hear that since the first informal
discussions began it has been
learned that East Africa has now
started importing sugar as local
consumption has exceeded the
| supply. It seems in these circum-
stances unlikely that East Africa
will be able to take up the quota of
10,000 tons when the new agree-
ment comes into operation in
1953 and it is anticipated that this
additicnal tonnage will be divided
proportionately among other col-
onial producers.

Little Hope
For Korean
Cease Fire

LAKE. SUCCESS, Dec. 19.

The United Nations Korean
Cease Fire Commission, assigned
by the Political Committee yester-
day to continue its task, was un-
derstood to have little hope
of stopping the fighting in Korea.
Wu Shu-Chuan, head of the Pek
ing delegation who said that cease
fire proposals were a “trap” was
due to leave for China today.

now

Highly placed delegates here
thought the matter had now reach-
ed a complete deadlock.

The Peking Government is
known to have told the Commis-
sion unofficially that it considered
it an “illegal body” because of its
terms of reference.

Chief Objection

The Chinese Communists chief
objection was that the Commission
was limited to discussion of the
cease fire without authority to
deal with other Asian questions
which Chinese consider insepar-
able from it.

These were the withdrawal of
foreign troeps from Korea, Chinese
Communist membership in the
United Nations and the withdrawal
of American support for Chinese
Nationalists in Formosa

The United States and other
delegations opposed any move to
allow the Commission to discuss
all these points together, They in-
sisted that only the cease fire must
be discussed

Lull In ©

Fighting

By JULIAN BATES
TOKYO, Dee, 19

General Mae Arthur's Intelli-
gence Staff said to-day 18 rearmed
North Korean divisions were poised
alongside more than 250,000
Chinese massed 70 miles north of
the 38th parallel.

This force still showed no sign of
striking. It was under a non-stop
air attack.

The lull in West Korea where
General Walker is strengthening
the defence line covering Seoul
was broken only by patrol clashes
in a wide no-man’s—land.

In the northeast perimeter
around Hungnam, Chinese report-
ed to have been joined by some
North Koreans, launched a series
of attacks last night, but these
slowed down after dawn.

United Nations warships con-
tinued to shell Chinese closing in
on Hungnam.

American troops held their posi-
tions against all attacks, the com-
munique said.

Meanwhile the North Korean
official radio broadcasting from
Kangye in the mountains, claim
that Communist guerilla forces
in South Korea had linked up and
were advancing on the major cities
of Taejon, Taegu and Pusan, major
United Nations supply port in
South Korea.

Taejon and Taegu lie along the
main supply line from that port to
forces around Seoul, South Korean
capital.

Little activity was reported
today in the northeast but it was
disclosed that an airstrip six miles
from Hungnam was overrun by
Chinese during the week

Mortar Positions Smashed

Marine pilots from the United
States.carrier Sicily have smashed |
and silenced Chinese Communist
mortar positions on the northern
fringe of the Allied defence peri-
meter at Hamhung in northeast

Leg. Co. Approve School
Building Programme

I THINK THE TIME has come when those of us in the
Legislature and others, must begin to realise that we have
got to call a halt to the existing methods by which public
business is being conducted, counselled Hon, H. A. Cuke
in the Legislative Council yesterday. He was speaking on
the Resolution for $149,010 to finish the school building
programme, and housing at the Pine, started by the Archi-
tect and Planning Officer, Mr. Crowe. The Resolution was

concurred in.

The Resolution which was pass
ed at the last meeting of the
House of Assembly was not on
the Order Paper but it was ejr-

culated te Honourable Members
The Colonial Secretary asked
leave to deal with it, and ex-

piained that he was doing so at
tnat time because of the contents
ei the Resolution and of the
Christmas recess of the Council.

Leave was granted and he
moved that it be concurred in,
He told the Council:

“It is clear from a perusal of the
available papers, with which I
have only recently become famil-
iar, that (a) the original estimates
in regard to St. Leonard’s Girls’

School, Parry and Coleridge
School, anu the Pine Housing
Estate were far too low; (b)

considerable expenditure has been
incurred for which the sanction
of the Legislature has not been
obtained.

The working of the department
of the Architect and Planning
Officer nas formed the subject of
a Commission of Enquiry whgse
report has been laid before this
Honourable Council on the 10th
of October. I do not propose,
therefore, to touch further on the
activities of the department of the
Architect and Planning Officer in
general. The purpose of the pres-
ent Resolution is two-fold, namely

(a) to secure sanction to pay
outstanding accounts; and

(b) to authorise the com-
pletion of the unfinished
works.

Original Estimate

The original approved estimated
cost of the new St. Leonard’s Girls
School and the new Parry and
Coleridge school was $168,000 ana
$11,400, respectively. Reference to
the Capital Estimates for 19§0—51
under items 1 and 2 of Head I on
page 113 of the Estimates will
show that token provisions of $1
each was made for these schools,
ihe reason being that the provi-
sion previously authorised for
schools had been exhausted al-
though the buildings had not yet
been completed. It was also
stated that as soon as a revised
estimate, based on a modified
specification had been prepared,
additional provision would be
sought for the completion of the
schools,

It is proposed that the comple-
tion of these buildings should be
undertaken by the Public Works
Department, and the Colonial
Engineer, an officer of long expe-
rience and mature judgment, has
estimated that the amount requir-
ed to pay outstanding aceounts
for materials and service and to
complete the Schools is $56,500
for St. Leonard’s Girls’ School,
and $70,102 for the Parry and
Coleridge School.

It is because these estimates,
$15,559.90 in respect of St. Leon-
ard’s Girls’ and $11,872.26 in re-
spect of the Parry and Coleridge
School represent outstanding ac-
counts, that I have felt justified
in departing from the usual pro-
cedure and am seeking leave for

consideration of a Resolution at
this afternoon’s meeting of the
Council.

However reprehensible may be
the fact that these outstanding
accounts incurred without the
sanction of the Legislature, the
good name of the Government of

this Island requires that they
should be settled as quickly as
possible.

I should mention that of; the
sum of $70,102 required for the
Parry and _ Coleridge School,
$12,102 represents q revote of



provision made in the 1949-50
Estimates which was unspent at
the end of, the financial year.

Chalky Mount School

The third item in the Resolu-
tion relates to the Chalky Mount
School which was completed at
the end of the last financial year
and on that aceount no provision
has been made inthe 1950-51
Estimates, An account for $145.27
has further been rendered for
materials supplied to the Archi-
tect and Planning Officer for this
School, and has been outstanding
since December, 1949. An amount
of $15 is available for revote from
the provision made in the 1949-
50 Estimates, and an additional
amount of $131 will now be re-
quired to meet this commitment.

The fourth item relates to Part
III of the Pine Housing Estate,
From the amount of $280,000
provided in the 1950-51 Estimates
under Head II, Housing, Item 1,
Pine Housing Estate, Part III, an
allocation of $50,500 was made
for the building of 27 new houses
at the Pine Estate.

The whole of this allocation has
been expended, and in order to
complete these houses and to
pay outstanding accounts for
materials supplied, ete., a further
$22,262 will be required. Of this
sum $10,559.58 represents out-
standing bills for materials sup-
plied and $584 for wages and rent
as yet unpaid. “

The total expenditure under
these Supplementary Estimates
will be finaneed from advances
pending the raising of loans I
hope that the Honourable Council
will agree, first, that the outstand-
ing bills must be settled without
further ado, and second, that au-
thority should be given for the
completion of these works by the
Public Works Department in
accordance with the revised esti-
mates which have been furnished
by the Colonial Engineer. It is
not a case of throwing good
money after bad, for I am ad-
vised that when the works are

eventually finished, good value
for expenditure will have been
received.”

Motion Seconded

Hon. H. A. Cuke seconded the
motion. He saiq that in doing
so he would make some remarks
which he did not intend to place
as am argument against the
Resolution because he thought
that everybody was agreed that it
would be senseless to have two
buildings uncompleted and not
spend the necessary money to
complete them.

He did not intend to make any
reference or deal in any way with
the Commission of Enquiry which
had been held, “But the time
has come when those of us in the
Legislature, and others, must be-
gin to realise that we have got
to call a halt to the existing
methods by which public business
is being conducted.”

They should take stock of the
good methods which had been
used in the past and see in what
way they were beneficial and
where necessary stick to them. In
the past in Barbados, there was
a sense of responsibility felt by
every Legislator and everybody,
in connection with public ex-
penditure, particularly so when
it came to things of capital nature.

Before a Resolution was passed
there was the greatest scrutiny
as to the amount of the estimates
and the best way of spending the
money to the advantage of the
community.

Having eventually passed the
estimates for a particular thing,
the Department concerned knew

apaaen. good looks tell you they’re just right.
““ You know, too, when you look at the price
tag, that you can’t get finer value. Illustrated

that if there was any serious mis-
calculations and they had to eome
Back for further funds, they
would be subjected to criticisms.
The result was that there was a
thorough sense of responsibility
and men diq their work efficient-

50% Increase

He felt that the time had come
when they could not go on spend-
ing money at the rate they were
spending without counting their
cost,

Mr. Cuke then referred to the
amount required to finish the
buildings and pointed out that in
one case 50 per cent. more than

what was provided before, was
needed.
He believeg the Legislature

was somewhat to be blamed for
not having gone more thoroughly
into the matter when it first came
before them.

He would cast no aspersions on
the Officer who had to do with
the buildings, because he did not
believe that he haq one cent of
the money. The real cause was
that proper estimates had not
been made. They were just as
responsible for not having asked
more questions, He would give
a note of warning that in the
future the estimates of Capital
Expenditure should be sent to a
Select Committee and any partic-
ular officer concerned should be
brought before them and ques-
tioned so that they would get
down to how the money was to
be spent and see to it that it was
Spent properly.

ey were going on at such a
Yate that he was beginning to get
extremely apnrehensive.

Trade Act To
Be Amended

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL
yesterday passed a Bill to amend
the Trade Act, 1910. The objects
and reasons of the Bill read:

“Under the Oils and Fats Agree-
ment, 1945 certain West India:
Islands agreed to supply Barbados
with Copra and Barbados agreed
to return oil and meal manufac-
tured therefrom. Crude cocoanut
oil is also imported from these
Islands and in due course some
of it is re-exported to them in w
refined state.



“In keeping with the spirit of
the suggested Customs Union, it
is reasonable that crude cocoanut
oil and Copra should receive the
Same drawback of duty as is ai
present allowed in the case of
crude cotton seed oil and cottor
seed and this Bill is intendeg to
give effect thereto.”



In The Council
Yesterday

WHEN the Legislative Counci!
met yesterday they coneurred in
a Resolution to approve of the
Book of Reference and plans of
the proposed extension of the
Waterworks in the parish. The
proposal is for the extension of
the Waterworks along Beckles
Road and the Bay Estate Housing,
Scheme,

The Council passed a Bill to
amend the Trade Act, 1910. The
Bill has to do with the Oils and
Fats Agreement, 1945, with certain
West Indian Islands.

They concurred in a Resolution
for $149,010 for the completion of
the school building programme,
and housing at the Pine,

The Council began considera-
tion of the Regulations made by
the Governor-in—Executive
Committee under the provision of
the Therapeutic Substances Act,
1949, They referred it to a Select
Committee.

Leave was granted Hon, V, C.
Gale as from December 12, to
January 7, and Hon, F. C, Hutson
as from December 9, to December
19.

The Council adjourned until
January 9.

VESTRIES

THE recent publication of the notices
by the parochial treasurers appointing
times and places for the 1951 Vestry
Elections serves to notify ratepayers that
during a long period of festivities they
must prepare for an important civic duty.

It is true that the period of election
has been fixed by statute for some time
now but it is clear that this is an incon-
venient season for vestry elections.

The importance of the functions of these
bodies is not fully appreciated even by
those who are called upon to elect ves-
trymen, In this island, the vestries con-
stitute in truth and fact our local gov-
ernment. . They are charged by statute
with responsibility for health and sanitary
services, and our widest form of social
service in the form of poor relief. These
are the services which touch intimately
the life and well being of the individual.
It is only within recent years that the
Commissioners of Highways in each par-
ish have been displaced by the Central
Road Board and now the Department of
Highways. It is still the right of the ves-
try in each parish to take over the roads
of any district which are in need of re-
pair before they can be done by the gov-
ernment department.

And so important are these functions
that the Vestries are authorised by the
law to lay rates on land and on trade to
carry out these duties under pain of pen-
alty.

If this importance is admitted then it
should be realised that the functions of
any body which touch so intimately the
life of thé people who till the land, carry
on trade and who own property should
be as a matter of course, the subject of
greater public interest.

It is well nigh impossible for the rate-
payers of the parishes to take that inter-
est in vestry elections during the Christ-
mas festivities. This continued lack of*
interest has now resulted in the frag-
mentary knowledge which the ratepayers
show in the composition and functions of
the vestries. And it is clear that vestries
can only function at their best and mem-
bers discharge their duties efficiently when
there is an intelligent interest by the
ratepayers in the details of that work.

It is not necessary to have contested
élections every year or to launch whole-
sale criticism against vestrymen and every-
thing they do in order to show interest
in their work; an intelligent interest in
their proceedings and the reasons for their
decisions is a factor which will contribute
to the efficient working of the system.

The time has come when there should be
greater influence exercised by the vestries
of this island so that there would be left
to the Executive Committee and so the
Central Government, the task of merely
initiating and. directing general policy.
The general method of conducting health
services could be indicated by the Central
Government and the details left to the
vestries. This would be the means of de-
ploying administration and a greater num-
ber of people would be able to take part
more directly in the conduct of public
affairs.

Any examination of the system and its
general benefits to the community must
revive the question as to what is to be
done with the Maude Report on local gov-
ernment. It was realised long ago that
the vestry system would be compelled to
submit to modernisation or fall by the
wayside. Its functions are so necessary
to the life of the community that it is
extremely important that they be exam-
ined once again in! the light of present
day demands. If the modernising is to
come by way of the recommendations of
Sir John Maude then it is time that some-
thing be done. ‘The fate of so important
an institution should not be left to chance.
This is, to say the least, trifling with the
well being of the entire community.





Christmas Treat

THE suggestion made in these columns
during this week that a giant Christmas Tree
be raised in Trafalgar Square in place of the
old evergreen which has now fallen, raises an
intriguing point.

First the suggestion is interesting. A Giant
Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square would be
an extreme pleasure to thousands of small
children, whose festival Christmas really is,
and perhaps to as many grown ups.

The tree, probably a casuarina, could be
given by some public spirited citizen and so
would cost nothing except transport and the
lighting could be done either by the Public
Works Department, as suggested in the letter
or by the Barbados Electric Corporation in
atonement for the power cuts which the public
have endured, or by the merchants of the City
as a means of advertising or perhaps by a
single firm selling electrical equipment.

In any district in England it would be easy
for the local Council to give the “kiddies” of
the district this Christmas treat. In Barbados
it is bound to present a somewhat difficult task.
The question first raised is who will foot the
bill or who can grant permission to erect the
temporary Tree.

If it is that the matter falls to the lot of the
Public Works then it might be necessary to
have a special meeting of the Legislature to
grant the £5 by resolution with a lengthy
addendum explaining the reason for the expen-
diture “which form the Schedule to the reso-
lution,” and inviting the Legislative Council
to concur therein.

Renoir (1841—1919), who at
the end of his life had his fingers
strapped to his brushes to paint
so crippled was he with arthritis,
made two contributions to the
movement. First, the rainbow
palette which he used as a sym-
bol for sunlight in his pictures,
and, secondly, the use of broken
colour or the application of small
strokes of different tints which
merge at a distance as distinct
from tints mixed on the palette.

construction of his figure draw-

Gaugin went a step further, in his Laurencin (1885— ) extracted

Tahitian paintings, he freed line
and ‘colour from being purely re-
presentational and employed them
“a3 such in his rhythmic work. Van
Gogh (1853-1890), a neurotic
Dutchman, reacted violently to
the intensity of the Southern light
of Provence. His earlier works
reflected the sombre light of the
North intensified by his religious
gloom, but his later works are
flooded with sunshine and colour.
He painted for only 6 years

Minor painter though he was, he
also contributed to the liberation

Henri Rousseau, le douaniet
(1884-1890), a retired Customs
House Officer, had long spent his
Sunday afternoons painting. With
no art training, his approach 4°
painting was entirely unsophisti-
cated, As a young man he had
served with the French forces sent
to Mexico to bolster up the ill-
fated Emperor Maximillian; in hi:
later days he used his recollec-
pee of the tropical vegetation of

highly imaginative paintings. He

The Nabis (or prophets) were
a group founded in 1892, composed
mainly of the followers of Gaugin.
Its most important members were
Bonnard (1867-1947) and Vuil-
lard (1867- ), both portrayed
scenes of family life and were
especially concerned with the use
of colour, This movement was fol-
lowed by the Fauves or
Beasts, a movement which aimed
only at giving a visual impressioo
by colour atmosphere.

A number of painters remained
aloof from these new movements
others were for a time influenced
by the new work produced and its
members gradually broke away
evolving their own styles which
still retained traces of the under-
lying theories which the move-
ment sought to disseminate.

Our Readers Say:

No Applause? No Bouquets?
No Theatre?’

To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,~It is unfortunate that the
theatre-going public of Barbados
has so little pride in their own
theatre group. It may be that this
impression (and I admit that it
is an impression) is net altogether
justified. I hope not. I wasn’t
present on the first night of the
“Man who came to Dinner”, On
the second night however, the
audience concealed any enthusiasm
it may have felt with conspicu-
ous success.

Oh—they laughed enough. They
laughed quite a lot, in fact, and
they clapped at odd moments
throughout the performance. It
was evident that they were enjoy-
ing themselves right up to the
final curtain. What happened then
may not have surprised the cast,
but it shocked me. Where there
should have been curtain calls for
the director, at least, and for the
two leads whose solid well-
sustained performances (not te be
compared, incidentally, to a few
minutes caricature) really
deserved them, there wasn’t even
one round of genuine applause. A
few people clapped languidly
There was one moment of pro-
foundly embarrassing _ silence.
Someone muttered “Let’s get out
of here”. Finally the bandmaster,
who'd been doing his best realized
that nothing was going to happen.
He gave the signal for God Save
the King, and that was that.

Now amateur acting is hard
work. It is hard work that people
do for love, that is for absolutely
nothing. The one reward that
amateurs have for months of effort
is applause. If “The Man who
Came to Dinner” hadn't been as
good as it actually was, the actors
would still have deserved better
treatment than they got. As it was,
the play was one of the best
amateur productions I have seen
anywhere, and the audience had
no excuse for its bad manners.

Actors have starved in order to
act, so the Bridgetown Players will
probably survive mere lack of
appreciation. And the director, too.

Slav Chagall (1887—
Italian Chirico (1888— ) began

realism and neo-surrealism
arrived. Surrealist painters sought
to depict a dream—often a night-
mare—world, instead of reality.
It was a natural reaction from
the horrors of war. Neo-surreal-
ists sought by their paintings to
produce psychological disquiet in
tne beholder. Paul Klee (1879—
1940), developed the art of
young children in his own way,
disregarding all the established
canons of art, The pictures which
he produced are often only of
interest for the texture of their
colour. While Klee experimented
with child art, Miro (1893— )
exploited line and colour and has
evolved a style of art remin-
iscent of the art of bushmen.
Picasso for a time toyed with
surrealism chiefly in the form of
constructions of metal, wire and

French painting has also had a
strong influence on American art
Whistler (1834—1903) was a
contemporary of the Impression-
ists, living in Paris and later in
London. Mary Cassatt (1845—
1926) was pupil of Degas,
while Sargen? (1856—1925) was
greatly influenced in his portrai-
ture by the Impressionists’ theory
of light. These were international
rather than American painters.
At the beginning of the second
World War a number of Surreal-
ist painters settled in the United
States and their work has given
a great stimulus to art production
there. In Mexico, a new school
of art is growing. Diego de
Rivera (1886— ) has made it his
policy to mingle leftist politics
with art. But, he is a cosmo-
politan painter, who has found

Cop Egg Hoarders

To The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—May I suggest to Col.
Michelin that the Policewomen be
detailed to keep an eye out this
week for the hawkers who are
hoarding eggs in the hope of
getting fantastic prices, also poul-
try etc., most of them have said
openly what prices they hope to
get out of the cornered housewife.

While on this subject may I
suggest that these Policewomen
be issued with a blue beret with
red patch (I attended the Remem-
brance Day Service at the Cathe-
dral and it did look ludicrous the
four helmets and spikes sticking
up amongst the other ranks) in
fact it is time the entire force
was issued with blue berets to
conform with the Barbados Regi-
ment on combined parades, Low
sho@s for the Girls I entirely agree
with, however, I should like to
see hose with Red hose tops added,
together with a white Spat or
Gaiter, and skirts more of the
Kilt type or at least a few more
box pleats.

Not forgetting the Sgt.° Majors

Sir,—I have seen in your issue

to practice in order that a team
might be selected to play a
B.C.A. team in the near future
and I am very glad to see that
the B.C.L. selectors have gone

~

mout things in such a business
iuke manner; put { am one of
those wno was most disappoimntec
at the omission of Clairmonte
De Peiza of St. John Baptist C.C.
from among the invitees. De
Peiza is one of the best all
rounders in local cricket of today.
Why should such talent go un-
cared for overlooked by those
who could help and wouldn’t?
In what way must this young
man sing his praises to catch
tne selectors’ eyes? He tried with
his bat and was not heard, he
tried with the ball only to be
overlaoked, he tried wicket
keeping all to no avail. Then
ana only then must one approve
of the old colloquial saying
“when men have tried their best
and failed angels can't do better.”
If this young man would only
be given a chance to prove his
worth who knows how far he
would reach? As a local bats-
man he is one of the greatest I
have seen before the stumps, and
it is only for one to see
action, his timing is perfect, his
foot work a joy to behold. and
his strokes the most fluent J
have ever seen wielded from a
flashing blade, and yet these
qualities are not yet enough to
gain a player an invitation on a
B.C.L. team, well then I would
only like to see those Dons and
Lens who oe : Hae invited.

May mean kidney trouble

A function of the kidneys is to
eliminate harmful impurities from
the system. If the kidneys grow
sluggish, these impurities accum-
ulate and settle and often become
a cause of pain in joints and
muscles. The way to tackle the
trouble is to help the kidneys.

Fork secu be toned up with
De Witt's Pills—the medicine

made specially for this purpose.
De Witt’s Pills have a soothing,
cleansing and antiseptic action on
the kidneys that brings them
back to perform their natural
function properly. This well-
tried medicine is sold all over
the world and we have many

Ju-C Beverage
Coming Soon

Ju-C, Trinidad’s favourite
beverage, will soon be introduced
into Barbados. A large two-
storey building that is now being
erected at Bay Street, opposite
the Aquatic Club Gap, will house
the Ju-C plant.

This is another step forward in
local enterprise. The firm bot-
tling Ju-C drinks will be called
Bottlers (Barbados) Ltd.
employ local people and use local
sugar for the drinks.

Mr. Chares Ray, formerly Field
Representative for Coca Cola,
who has been connected with bot-
tling for the past ten years, will
be the Managing Director of the
firm.

Mr. Ray told the Advocate yes-
terday that Ju-C drinks will carry
six or seven different
flavours to suit public taste and
demand. The factory will be
built along modern lines and
equipped with modern machinery.
He said that no effort will be

building in keeping with the sur-
rounding district.

There will be special conditions
offered to employees and there
will also be a staff room on the
second floor where classes will be
held. Everyone employed by the
firm will have to attend

classes,
Quick Work

When asked about the local
artisans, Mr. Ray, who has spent
the majority of his years in
Trinidad, said: “I employed 45
men to erect the building and
considering that they have only
started two months ago, they have
accomplished a lot. They are
very interested in their work and
I am pleased with them”.

He said that when the building
is completed and the plant is
working ,he hopes to include a
number of these workmen on his
permanent staff.

The building is
block stone. The steel frame
came from Scotland. It stands 20
feet from the road and this space
will be decorated with lawns and
gardens. It is constructed so as
to allow trucks to drive right in-
side the plant. ,

700 Eyes”
Watch A Ship

FOR the first time for more than
50 years the Navy have gone out
of their way to break a ship in
half.

A modern destroyer, the “Battle”
class Albuera, was chosen for the
test—-which may save other ships
in future. *

The uncompleted Albuera was
put in dry dock at the Naval Con-
struction Research Establishment,
Rosyth, with supports only amid-
ships.

Then 700 electric “eyes” were
placed in various parts of the
ship. Through these gauges, all
the stresses in the Albuera could
be seen in a hut on the dock-
side.

Both ends of the vessel were
slowly filled with water until she
broke her back, About 700 tons of
steel fell into a_ specially con-
structed cradle.

“It was not safe for anybody
to remain on board during the
experiment,” a Naval officer said
to-day. “We did not know just
where the ship would break and
there was the danger from flying
rivets and splinters of metal.”

He had certainly tried to under-
stand everyone’s point of view,
poor fellow, but it hadn’t done him
much good.

His home was abandoned and
looted, and if he and his family
were still alive they were in one
of the endless streams of refugees

The theft
You hear of people who would
steal the shirt off your back, but
a colleague of mine in Seoul
caught a Gook Woman stealing his
long winter underpants.

To be fair, he wasn’t actually
wearing thém at the time of the
theft. He had left them in a
drawer, and he came into his room
just as the cleaning woman was
making away with them. He
grabbed one end of them and she

hung on to the other and they had
a real tug-of-war before he got
them back.

All the same, they disappeared
next day, and since then he has
seen them protruding below the
cleaning woman's trousers.

A Gook’s Tour of the black mar-
ket in Seoul is an interesting ex-
perience. Every kind of American
equipment you can think of is laid
out openly on the stalls

The canteen had no batteries
for my electric torch the other
day, but on the black market there
were as many as I wanted all from
the American Army stocks.

A Gook colonel who speaks
English told me that he bought his
uniform in the black market.
There was nowhere else he could
get one. He didn’t think there was
anything odd about it, so a Gook
time was had by all.

GENEVA, Dec. 12
An expert group to-day opened
a six-day session in Geneva,
under joint sponsorship of the
World Health Organization and
the Food and Agriculture Organ-
ization, to formulate recommend-

ations for the control of bovine
tuberculosis and other. animal
diseases communicable to man.
The importance of bovine
tubergulosis as a public health

problem has long been recogn‘™ei!
by health authorities, WHO point-
ed out, Except in Scandinavian
countries the disease is of major
importance in northern, western
and some southern European
countries. It is especialy serious
in the United Kingdom, Eire,
rance, Switzerland, Austria,
Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia

and Italy. In these countries,
between 20 and 60 per cent. of
the cattle are infected. In other
European countries and several

countries of the Eastern Mediter-
ranean area, Africa, Asia, Oceania,
and Central and South America,
the disease is less widespread and
is prevalent mainly in dairy
herds near large population cen-
tres.

Members of the Committee, all
eminent specialists in veterinary
medicine, will formulate guiding
principles for the systematic con-
trol of the following animal dis-



eases transmissible to man: an-
thrax, hydatidosis, Q fever,
psittacosis,



cephalitis.

OPENING AT

Two other important animal
diseases communicable to man-
rabies and brucellosis — were

considered by WHO expert com-
suittees earlier this year. As a
res:lt, an extensive anti-rabies
campaign is already under way
in Israel and a study of a new
hyper-immune rabies serum is in
progress in Iran. Thirteen FAO-
WHO brucellosis centres have
been designated in various conn-

tries.

The experts will also study
ways of achieving closer co-oper

ation between Health and Agri- |

culture Ministries in various coun-
tries to enable veterinarians and
medical officers to plan concerted
attacks on all diseases,

CHRISTMAS
GREETINGS

From M.S.

‘A Resident in Barbados)
RECENT “Life” edi-
torial began with these

words:— “Democracy is a
lot of people _ .

This phrase breaks up the
solid mass called “Democ-
racy” into a crowd of men,
boys, women, girls, babies,
grandmas and grandpas, each
different from the other in
age, appearance, disposi-
tions, education and earning
ability, Some are good look-
ing, some ugly, some shabby,
some well dressed, some
sickly, some healthy, some
smiling, some scowling. This
mixed crowd of individuals
makes the group we call
“Democracy”.

Nations too are mixed
crowds — a lot of people.
Take Britain. In it there
are blondes and brunettes,
thieves and philanthropists,
snobs and friendly folks,
socialists and conservatives,
some are lazy, some ener-
getic, some courteous and
some rude, It is impossible,
to make a correct generali-
zation such as “The British
are conservative.” Britain is
not a merged mass with a
common mentality, com-
mon character or common
ideals. It is impossible to
generalize about China,
India, Russia, Germany or
U.S.A. It is folly to try and
lump nations into one solid
body and then label them.
Nations are a lot of people
and people are different.

The same is true, if we
stop to think of it, of Insti-
tutions, Classes and Races.
“The Church” is a lot of
people bearing little or no
resemblance, even on points
of doctrine or performance.
“Government” is a lot of
people of varying capacities
and opinions working with
different motives. ‘‘Capita-
lists” are a lot of people
with no common character-
istic, not even the possession
of capital or the desire for
it; “Labour” is a lot of men
and women, some working
hard, others loafing, some
educated, some __ illiterate,
some living in fine houses,
some penniless, The “White
Race” is not uniformly intel-
ligent, honest and unselfish.
Every type of mind and
body and ‘character is found
beneath a white skin. The
“Brown and Black Races”
are not uniformly intelli-
gent, honest and unselfish.
Every type of mind, body
and character is to be found
beneath Bleck and Brown
skins,

A little reflection will con-
vince us that because a man
is born in Brazil he is not
necessarily greedy or gen-
erous, timid or daring,
effi tape ne cawalase Tea other
words — geography has
nothing to do with the per-
sonal quality of a man.
Neither have bank-balances,
skin pigments or school
certificates.

It is easy and convenient
to generalize, to remark that
Americans are rowdy, Chi-
wese are backward, that
Capitalists are exploiters, or
(if we are Capitalists) that
Labour is greedy. Actually
none of these statements is
true. No one trait of char-
acter is shown by every
American, every Chinese,
every Capitalist or every
Labourer. To estimate peo-
ple correctly, each man must
be judged individually on
his own merit.

Men and women of intel-
ligence, integrity and cour-
age, who are interested in
something beyond their own
profit and comfort, are scat-
tered around the globe, If
their location were shown
by red dots—the map would
be aglow, There would be
dots in Greenland’s outposts,
in African jungles, in vil-
lages of Japan and of India;
in the Coane a toed
the steppes of the Cau .
on the ranchos of the Argen-
tine. These men and women
are behind plows, sewing
machines, polished desk
tops, engine throttles, school
desks, wash tubs, silver tea
trays and pulpits, They are
busy making straight seams
and square deals; they fork
deep and measure true. They
face the music of their mis-
takes. They are concerned
with the other fellow’s trou-
ble. They persist. Theirs is
the outward gesture, out-
ward from the pocket, out-
ward from the mind, out-
ward from the heart, out-
ward to the nearest person
in the house, outward across
the street} and across the
seas, These are the aristo-
crats of the spirit and they
are to be found everywhere

Christmas time is a time
of mental generosity, a good
time to mellow our judg-
ments and grow more
divinely just, so that through
the year we will look at

men and women clear-eyed,
seeing each individually,
siving respect where it is
due, regardless of nationali-
ty, race, color, creed or class.

_ Decision

\ LONDON, Dec. 19.
RITISH businessmen with

trading interests in the
Far East are protesting vigor-
| ously against the American
‘decision to restrict trade with
, China and Hong Kong.
The British Government has
also taken up the matter at
the highest level following
the statement from the Hong
Kong Government calling for
i“the strongest _representa-
tions” to the United States
Government.

The Colonial Office is in consul-
tation with the Kong Kong Gov-
ernment to decide what steps
should be taken in’ view of the
American action and to discuss
the possibility of working out a
compromise solution. Meanwhile
the Hong Kong Government’s re-
quest for top level British inter-
vention on their behalf is receiving
the attention of the Foreign
Office.

There is, however, every indica
tion that the United States will
remain adamant. In’ fact, several
Britis h businessmen to-day
admitted they held out little
hepe of influencing the American

decision.
On Record

Their purpose in protesting to
the British Government was to
ensure that their views on the
subject were on record and would
be taken into consideration if other
fovernments pressed on America
to take similar steps to restrict
trade with China

It is considered almost inevita-
ble that the United States Govern-
ment will follow up their action

Sugar Price
Will Be
Fixed Today

(From Our Own Correspondent)
LONDON, Dec..19

The price for the 1951 West In-
dies sugar crop is expected to be
fixed to-morrow. Discussions have
already been proceeding for the
past couple of days.

Informal meetings have taken
place between representatives of
colonial sugar producers and
Prime Minister Hanlon of Queens-
land, Australia, Representing the
West Indies is the West Indu
Committee.

Other colonies are represented
by Sir Phillipe Raffray (Mauri-
tius), Mr. H. R. F. Watson (Fiji)
and Mr, Roger Norton (East
Africa).

To-morrow these representatives
meet the Food Ministry to finalise
price arrangements for all terri-
tories next year. West Indian
producers may be interested to
hear that since the first informal
discussions began it has been
learned that East Africa has now
started importing sugar as local
consumption has exceeded the
| supply. It seems in these circum-
stances unlikely that East Africa
will be able to take up the quota of
10,000 tons when the new agree-
ment comes into operation in
1953 and it is anticipated that this
additicnal tonnage will be divided
proportionately among other col-
onial producers.

Little Hope
For Korean
Cease Fire

LAKE. SUCCESS, Dec. 19.

The United Nations Korean
Cease Fire Commission, assigned
by the Political Committee yester-
day to continue its task, was un-
derstood to have little hope
of stopping the fighting in Korea.
Wu Shu-Chuan, head of the Pek
ing delegation who said that cease
fire proposals were a “trap” was
due to leave for China today.

now

Highly placed delegates here
thought the matter had now reach-
ed a complete deadlock.

The Peking Government is
known to have told the Commis-
sion unofficially that it considered
it an “illegal body” because of its
terms of reference.

Chief Objection

The Chinese Communists chief
objection was that the Commission
was limited to discussion of the
cease fire without authority to
deal with other Asian questions
which Chinese consider insepar-
able from it.

These were the withdrawal of
foreign troeps from Korea, Chinese
Communist membership in the
United Nations and the withdrawal
of American support for Chinese
Nationalists in Formosa

The United States and other
delegations opposed any move to
allow the Commission to discuss
all these points together, They in-
sisted that only the cease fire must
be discussed

Lull In ©
W. Korea
Fighting

By JULIAN BATES
TOKYO, Dee, 19

General Mae Arthur's Intelli-
gence Staff said to-day 18 rearmed
North Korean divisions were poised
alongside more than 250,000
Chinese massed 70 miles north of
the 38th parallel.

This force still showed no sign of
striking. It was under a non-stop
air attack.

The lull in West Korea where
General Walker is strengthening
the defence line covering Seoul
was broken only by patrol clashes
in a wide no-man’s—land.

In the northeast perimeter
around Hungnam, Chinese report-
ed to have been joined by some
North Koreans, launched a series
of attacks last night, but these
slowed down after dawn.

United Nations warships con-
tinued to shell Chinese closing in
on Hungnam.

American troops held their posi-
tions against all attacks, the com-
munique said.

Meanwhile the North Korean
official radio broadcasting from
Kangye in the mountains, claim
that Communist guerilla forces
in South Korea had linked up and
were advancing on the major cities
of Taejon, Taegu and Pusan, major
United Nations supply port in
South Korea.

Taejon and Taegu lie along the
main supply line from that port to
forces around Seoul, South Korean
capital.

Little activity was reported
today in the northeast but it was
disclosed that an airstrip six miles
from Hungnam was overrun by
Chinese during the week

Mortar Positions Smashed

Marine pilots from the United
States.carrier Sicily have smashed |
and silenced Chinese Communist
mortar positions on the northern

Dr. Henry Thomas, Bishop

takes to be a teacher,

Marshall Will Stay

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19,
President Truman

said today
that Genera] George Marshall, |
American. Secretary for Defence, |
would continue in his present
office.
The President was questioned at
his weekly Press Conference |

about a press report that General |
Marshall was likely to step down |
from his cabinet post early next !
year because of ill health

A report published in the New
York Times said that Stuart
Symington, Chairman of the
National Security Resources Board
might be appointed to the
Defence post. President Truman
said that today was the first time
he had heard of the report and
there was nothing to. it .

He added that! Symington .wa

how Acheson had _ consistently

“There have been new attacks
in the past week against Secre-

have been asked to remove him

As soon as General Eisenhower
signifies he is ready to assume

North Atlantic Powers’ forces on
the Continent will be placed un-
der him

‘eThe General’s command will
include armies in being, and
trained additional troops as they
are raised according to time
schedules already prepared.

Troops’ Review

During his inspection tour Gen-
eral Eisenhower is expected to
review the efficiency of troops in
Germany and examine at first
hand the morale, training methods,
equipment requirements, and the
rearmament efforts, of Britain,
France, Belgium, the Netherlands,
Norway Italy and Portugal,

It was in December 1943 that
Eisenhower was called upon_to
take command of the Allied Ex-
peditionary Force preparing for
the liberation of Europe.

He was still a Colonel ten years
ago.

When the United States enter-
ed the First World War “Ike”,
then a temporary Lieutenant
Colonel made a great effort to get '

was on board a troopship ready

Washington to take over the Gen~-
eral Staff's War Plans Division

Leg. Co. Approve School
Building Programme

I THINK THE TIME has come when those of us in the
Legislature and others, must begin to realise that we have
got to call a halt to the existing methods by which public
business is being conducted, counselled Hon, H. A. Cuke
in the Legislative Council yesterday. He was speaking on
the Resolution for $149,010 to finish the school building
programme, and housing at the Pine, started by the Archi-
tect and Planning Officer, Mr. Crowe. The Resolution was

concurred in.

The Resolution which was pass
ed at the last meeting of the
House of Assembly was not on
the Order Paper but it was ejr-

culated te Honourable Members
The Colonial Secretary asked
leave to deal with it, and ex-

piained that he was doing so at
tnat time because of the contents
ei the Resolution and of the
Christmas recess of the Council.

Leave was granted and he
moved that it be concurred in,
He told the Council:

“It is clear from a perusal of the
available papers, with which I
have only recently become famil-
iar, that (a) the original estimates
in regard to St. Leonard’s Girls’

School, Parry and Coleridge
School, anu the Pine Housing
Estate were far too low; (b)

considerable expenditure has been
incurred for which the sanction
of the Legislature has not been
obtained.

The working of the department
of the Architect and Planning
Officer nas formed the subject of
a Commission of Enquiry whgse
report has been laid before this
Honourable Council on the 10th
of October. I do not propose,
therefore, to touch further on the
activities of the department of the
Architect and Planning Officer in
general. The purpose of the pres-
ent Resolution is two-fold, namely

(a) to secure sanction to pay
outstanding accounts; and

(b) to authorise the com-
pletion of the unfinished
works.

Original Estimate

The original approved estimated
cost of the new St. Leonard’s Girls
School and the new Parry and
Coleridge school was $168,000 ana
$11,400, respectively. Reference to
the Capital Estimates for 19§0—51
under items 1 and 2 of Head I on
page 113 of the Estimates will
show that token provisions of $1
each was made for these schools,
ihe reason being that the provi-
sion previously authorised for
schools had been exhausted al-
though the buildings had not yet
been completed. It was also
stated that as soon as a revised
estimate, based on a modified
specification had been prepared,
additional provision would be
sought for the completion of the
schools,

It is proposed that the comple-
tion of these buildings should be
undertaken by the Public Works
Department, and the Colonial
Engineer, an officer of long expe-
rience and mature judgment, has
estimated that the amount requir-
ed to pay outstanding aceounts
for materials and service and to
complete the Schools is $56,500
for St. Leonard’s Girls’ School,
and $70,102 for the Parry and
Coleridge School.

It is because these estimates,
$15,559.90 in respect of St. Leon-
ard’s Girls’ and $11,872.26 in re-
spect of the Parry and Coleridge
School represent outstanding ac-
counts, that I have felt justified
in departing from the usual pro-
cedure and am seeking leave for

consideration of a Resolution at
this afternoon’s meeting of the
Council.

However reprehensible may be
the fact that these outstanding
accounts incurred without the
sanction of the Legislature, the
good name of the Government of

this Island requires that they
should be settled as quickly as
possible.

I should mention that of; the
sum of $70,102 required for the
Parry and _ Coleridge School,
$12,102 represents q revote of



provision made in the 1949-50
Estimates which was unspent at
the end of, the financial year.

Chalky Mount School

The third item in the Resolu-
tion relates to the Chalky Mount
School which was completed at
the end of the last financial year
and on that aceount no provision
has been made inthe 1950-51
Estimates, An account for $145.27
has further been rendered for
materials supplied to the Archi-
tect and Planning Officer for this
School, and has been outstanding
since December, 1949. An amount
of $15 is available for revote from
the provision made in the 1949-
50 Estimates, and an additional
amount of $131 will now be re-
quired to meet this commitment.

The fourth item relates to Part
III of the Pine Housing Estate,
From the amount of $280,000
provided in the 1950-51 Estimates
under Head II, Housing, Item 1,
Pine Housing Estate, Part III, an
allocation of $50,500 was made
for the building of 27 new houses
at the Pine Estate.

The whole of this allocation has
been expended, and in order to
complete these houses and to
pay outstanding accounts for
materials supplied, ete., a further
$22,262 will be required. Of this
sum $10,559.58 represents out-
standing bills for materials sup-
plied and $584 for wages and rent
as yet unpaid. “

The total expenditure under
these Supplementary Estimates
will be finaneed from advances
pending the raising of loans I
hope that the Honourable Council
will agree, first, that the outstand-
ing bills must be settled without
further ado, and second, that au-
thority should be given for the
completion of these works by the
Public Works Department in
accordance with the revised esti-
mates which have been furnished
by the Colonial Engineer. It is
not a case of throwing good
money after bad, for I am ad-
vised that when the works are

eventually finished, good value
for expenditure will have been
received.”

Motion Seconded

Hon. H. A. Cuke seconded the
motion. He saiq that in doing
so he would make some remarks
which he did not intend to place
as am argument against the
Resolution because he thought
that everybody was agreed that it
would be senseless to have two
buildings uncompleted and not
spend the necessary money to
complete them.

He did not intend to make any
reference or deal in any way with
the Commission of Enquiry which
had been held, “But the time
has come when those of us in the
Legislature, and others, must be-
gin to realise that we have got
to call a halt to the existing
methods by which public business
is being conducted.”

They should take stock of the
good methods which had been
used in the past and see in what
way they were beneficial and
where necessary stick to them. In
the past in Barbados, there was
a sense of responsibility felt by
every Legislator and everybody,
in connection with public ex-
penditure, particularly so when
it came to things of capital nature.

Before a Resolution was passed
there was the greatest scrutiny
as to the amount of the estimates
and the best way of spending the
money to the advantage of the
community.

Having eventually passed the
estimates for a particular thing,
the Department concerned knew

apaaen. good looks tell you they’re just right.

tag, that you can’t get finer value. Illustrated

calculations and they had to eome
Back for further funds, they
would be subjected to criticisms.
The result was that there was a
thorough sense of responsibility
and men diq their work efficient-

50% Increase

He felt that the time had come
when they could not go on spend-
ing money at the rate they were
spending without counting their
cost,

Mr. Cuke then referred to the
amount required to finish the
buildings and pointed out that in
one case 50 per cent. more than

what was provided before, was
needed.
He believeg the Legislature

was somewhat to be blamed for
not having gone more thoroughly
into the matter when it first came
before them.

He would cast no aspersions on
the Officer who had to do with
the buildings, because he did not
believe that he haq one cent of
the money. The real cause was
that proper estimates had not
been made. They were just as
responsible for not having asked
more questions, He would give
a note of warning that in the
future the estimates of Capital
Expenditure should be sent to a
Select Committee and any partic-
ular officer concerned should be
brought before them and ques-
tioned so that they would get
down to how the money was to
be spent and see to it that it was
Spent properly.

ey were going on at such a
Yate that he was beginning to get
extremely apnrehensive.

Trade Act To
Be Amended

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL
yesterday passed a Bill to amend
the Trade Act, 1910. The objects
and reasons of the Bill read:

“Under the Oils and Fats Agree-
ment, 1945 certain West India:
Islands agreed to supply Barbados
with Copra and Barbados agreed
to return oil and meal manufac-
tured therefrom. Crude cocoanut
oil is also imported from these
Islands and in due course some
of it is re-exported to them in w
refined state.



“In keeping with the spirit of
the suggested Customs Union, it
is reasonable that crude cocoanut
oil and Copra should receive the
Same drawback of duty as is ai
present allowed in the case of
crude cotton seed oil and cottor
seed and this Bill is intendeg to
give effect thereto.”



In The Council
Yesterday

WHEN the Legislative Counci!
met yesterday they coneurred in
a Resolution to approve of the
Book of Reference and plans of
the proposed extension of the
Waterworks in the parish. The
proposal is for the extension of
the Waterworks along Beckles
Road and the Bay Estate Housing,
Scheme,

The Council passed a Bill to
amend the Trade Act, 1910. The
Bill has to do with the Oils and
Fats Agreement, 1945, with certain
West Indian Islands.

They concurred in a Resolution
for $149,010 for the completion of
the school building programme,
and housing at the Pine,

The Council began considera-
tion of the Regulations made by
the Governor-in—Executive
Committee under the provision of
the Therapeutic Substances Act,
1949, They referred it to a Select
Committee.

Leave was granted Hon, V, C.
Gale as from December 12, to
January 7, and Hon, F. C, Hutson
as from December 9, to December
19.

The Council adjourned until
January 9.

VESTRIES

THE recent publication of the notices
by the parochial treasurers appointing
times and places for the 1951 Vestry
Elections serves to notify ratepayers that
during a long period of festivities they
must prepare for an important civic duty.

It is true that the period of election
has been fixed by statute for some time
now but it is clear that this is an incon-
venient season for vestry elections.

The importance of the functions of these
bodies is not fully appreciated even by
those who are called upon to elect ves-
trymen, In this island, the vestries con-
stitute in truth and fact our local gov-
ernment. . They are charged by statute
with responsibility for health and sanitary
services, and our widest form of social
service in the form of poor relief. These
are the services which touch intimately
the life and well being of the individual.
It is only within recent years that the
Commissioners of Highways in each par-
ish have been displaced by the Central
Road Board and now the Department of
Highways. It is still the right of the ves-
try in each parish to take over the roads
of any district which are in need of re-
pair before they can be done by the gov-
ernment department.

And so important are these functions
that the Vestries are authorised by the
law to lay rates on land and on trade to
carry out these duties under pain of pen-
alty.

If this importance is admitted then it
should be realised that the functions of
any body which touch so intimately the
life of thé people who till the land, carry
on trade and who own property should
be as a matter of course, the subject of
greater public interest.

It is well nigh impossible for the rate-
payers of the parishes to take that inter-
est in vestry elections during the Christ-
mas festivities. This continued lack of*
interest has now resulted in the frag-
mentary knowledge which the ratepayers
show in the composition and functions of
the vestries. And it is clear that vestries
can only function at their best and mem-
bers discharge their duties efficiently when
there is an intelligent interest by the
ratepayers in the details of that work.

It is not necessary to have contested
élections every year or to launch whole-
sale criticism against vestrymen and every-
thing they do in order to show interest
in their work; an intelligent interest in
their proceedings and the reasons for their
decisions is a factor which will contribute
to the efficient working of the system.

The time has come when there should be
greater influence exercised by the vestries
of this island so that there would be left
to the Executive Committee and so the
Central Government, the task of merely
initiating and. directing general policy.
The general method of conducting health
services could be indicated by the Central
Government and the details left to the
vestries. This would be the means of de-
ploying administration and a greater num-
ber of people would be able to take part
more directly in the conduct of public
affairs.

Any examination of the system and its
general benefits to the community must
revive the question as to what is to be
done with the Maude Report on local gov-
ernment. It was realised long ago that
the vestry system would be compelled to
submit to modernisation or fall by the
wayside. Its functions are so necessary
to the life of the community that it is
extremely important that they be exam-
ined once again in! the light of present
day demands. If the modernising is to
come by way of the recommendations of
Sir John Maude then it is time that some-
thing be done. ‘The fate of so important
an institution should not be left to chance.
This is, to say the least, trifling with the
well being of the entire community.





Christmas Treat

THE suggestion made in these columns
during this week that a giant Christmas Tree
be raised in Trafalgar Square in place of the
old evergreen which has now fallen, raises an
intriguing point.

First the suggestion is interesting. A Giant
Christmas Tree in Trafalgar Square would be
an extreme pleasure to thousands of small
children, whose festival Christmas really is,
and perhaps to as many grown ups.

The tree, probably a casuarina, could be
given by some public spirited citizen and so
would cost nothing except transport and the
lighting could be done either by the Public
Works Department, as suggested in the letter
or by the Barbados Electric Corporation in
atonement for the power cuts which the public
have endured, or by the merchants of the City
as a means of advertising or perhaps by a
single firm selling electrical equipment.

In any district in England it would be easy
for the local Council to give the “kiddies” of
the district this Christmas treat. In Barbados
it is bound to present a somewhat difficult task.
The question first raised is who will foot the
bill or who can grant permission to erect the
temporary Tree.

If it is that the matter falls to the lot of the
Public Works then it might be necessary to
have a special meeting of the Legislature to
grant the £5 by resolution with a lengthy
addendum explaining the reason for the expen-
diture “which form the Schedule to the reso-
lution,” and inviting the Legislative Council
to concur therein.

Renoir (1841—1919), who at
the end of his life had his fingers
strapped to his brushes to paint
so crippled was he with arthritis,
made two contributions to the
movement. First, the rainbow
palette which he used as a sym-
bol for sunlight in his pictures,
and, secondly, the use of broken
colour or the application of small
strokes of different tints which
merge at a distance as distinct
from tints mixed on the palette.

Gaugin went a step further, in his Laurencin (1885— ) extracted

Tahitian paintings, he freed line
and ‘colour from being purely re-
presentational and employed them
“a3 such in his rhythmic work. Van
Gogh (1853-1890), a neurotic
Dutchman, reacted violently to
the intensity of the Southern light
of Provence. His earlier works
reflected the sombre light of the
North intensified by his religious
gloom, but his later works are
flooded with sunshine and colour.
He painted for only 6 years

Minor painter though he was, he
also contributed to the liberation
of colour from being purely des-

Henri Rousseau, le douaniet
(1884-1890), a retired Customs
House Officer, had long spent his
Sunday afternoons painting. With
no art training, his approach 4°
painting was entirely unsophisti-
cated, As a young man he had
served with the French forces sent
to Mexico to bolster up the ill-
fated Emperor Maximillian; in hi:
later days he used his recollec-
pee of the tropical vegetation of

exico to produce a number of
highly imaginative paintings. He
is also a master of proletarian art

The Nabis (or prophets) were
a group founded in 1892, composed
mainly of the followers of Gaugin.
Its most important members were
Bonnard (1867-1947) and Vuil-
lard (1867- ), both portrayed
scenes of family life and were
especially concerned with the use
of colour, This movement was fol-
lowed by the Fauves or
Beasts, a movement which aimed
only at giving a visual impressioo
by colour atmosphere.

A number of painters remained
aloof from these new movements
others were for a time influenced
by the new work produced and its
members gradually broke away
evolving their own styles which
still retained traces of the under-
lying theories which the move-
ment sought to disseminate.

No Theatre?’

To the Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,~It is unfortunate that the
theatre-going public of Barbados
has so little pride in their own
theatre group. It may be that this
impression (and I admit that it
is an impression) is net altogether
justified. I hope not. I wasn’t
present on the first night of the
“Man who came to Dinner”, On
the second night however, the
audience concealed any enthusiasm
it may have felt with conspicu-
ous success.

Oh—they laughed enough. They
laughed quite a lot, in fact, and
they clapped at odd moments
throughout the performance. It
was evident that they were enjoy-
ing themselves right up to the
final curtain. What happened then
may not have surprised the cast,
but it shocked me. Where there
should have been curtain calls for
the director, at least, and for the
two leads whose solid well-
sustained performances (not te be
compared, incidentally, to a few
minutes caricature) really
deserved them, there wasn’t even
one round of genuine applause. A
few people clapped languidly
There was one moment of pro-
foundly embarrassing _ silence.
Someone muttered “Let’s get out
of here”. Finally the bandmaster,
who'd been doing his best realized
that nothing was going to happen.
He gave the signal for God Save
the King, and that was that.

Now amateur acting is hard
work. It is hard work that people
do for love, that is for absolutely
nothing. The one reward that
amateurs have for months of effort
is applause. If “The Man who
Came to Dinner” hadn't been as
good as it actually was, the actors
would still have deserved better
treatment than they got. As it was,
the play was one of the best
amateur productions I have seen
anywhere, and the audience had
no excuse for its bad manners.

Actors have starved in order to
act, so the Bridgetown Players will
probably survive mere lack of
appreciation. And the director, too.

realism and neo-surrealism
arrived. Surrealist painters sought
to depict a dream—often a night-

It was a natural reaction from
the horrors of war. Neo-surreal-
ists sought by their paintings to
produce psychological disquiet in
tne beholder. Paul Klee (1879—
1940), developed the art of
young children in his own way,
disregarding all the established
canons of art, The pictures which
he produced are often only of
interest for the texture of their
colour. While Klee experimented
with child art, Miro (1893— )
exploited line and colour and has

This is a tale of the early eighteen hun-
dreds, when almost every day saw some new
and fascinating development in industrial
technique. Foremost among the an
signs of progress were the huge new gas-| |
holders springing up around Britain’s ex-
panding manufacturing towns, unsightly in-
stallations admittedly, but tribute to the gen-
ius of Scottish-bred William Murdoch, the
man who pioneered the commercial use of
gas as a source of light and heat. One of the
largest gas-works was built on the outskirts

realism had however, begun in

In England the movement in
modern art slowly followed that

Impressionists to the outbreak of
the second World War, there had

in the art world, for her last
period of painting —one of deli-
cate colours and shapes — is her
most successful. Paul Nash (1889-—
1946) evolved a reticent colour
scheme in his landscapes. He was
much influenced by geometric
cubism and later by surrealism,
Henry Moore (1898— ) a sculptor,
was for a time influenced by Sur-
realism, but his preoccupation has
always been the human form. His
drawings and watercolours of

The equally shrewd gasworks manager
stipulated that, if he took one waste-product
for nothing, he must buy the other by-pro-

accepted the compromise. He found no},
difficulty in marketing the coal tar and
residual oils; only the remaining crude nap-
tha seemed worthless. Nevertheless, its new
owner was determined to make this “white
elephant” serve some purpose. After end-
less experiments, he tried dissolving some
rubber in the naptha—and evolved the first
rubber solution. His discovery seemed to
him a miraculous means of combatting one

French painting has also had a
strong influence on American art
Whistler (1834—1903) was a
contemporary of the Impression-
ists, living in Paris and later in
London. Mary Cassatt (1845—
1926) was pupil of Degas,
while Sargen? (1856—1925) was
greatly influenced in his portrai-
ture by the Impressionists’ theory
of light. These were international
rather than American painters.
At the beginning of the second
World War a number of Surreal-
ist painters settled in the United
States and their work has given
a great stimulus to art production
there. In Mexico, a new school
of art is growing. Diego de
Rivera (1886— ) has made it his
policy to mingle leftist politics
with art. But, he is a cosmo-
politan painter, who has found

Whoever chose and cast “The Man
who Came to Dinner” knows too
much to be discouraged. There wil!
be more plays, though whether or
not Barbadian audiences deserve
plays is an open question. Perhaps
they only need a little corrective

Cop Egg Hoarders

To The Editor, The Advocate

SIR,—May I suggest to Col.
Michelin that the Policewomen be
detailed to keep an eye out this
week for the hawkers who are
hoarding eggs in the hope of
getting fantastic prices, also poul-
try etc., most of them have said
openly what prices they hope to
get out of the cornered housewife.

While on this subject may I
suggest that these Policewomen
be issued with a blue beret with
red patch (I attended the Remem-
brance Day Service at the Cathe-
dral and it did look ludicrous the
four helmets and spikes sticking
up amongst the other ranks) in
fact it is time the entire force
was issued with blue berets to
conform with the Barbados Regi-
ment on combined parades, Low
sho@s for the Girls I entirely agree
with, however, I should like to
see hose with Red hose tops added,
together with a white Spat or
Gaiter, and skirts more of the
Kilt type or at least a few more
box pleats.

Not forgetting the Sgt.° Majors
of Scottish regiments who used to
stand at the Barrack gate and in-
spect the men going out on leave
to see that they did not have on

Wanted: Angel

To The Editor, The Advocate—
Sir,—I have seen in your issue
of the 16th. that twenty six
\eague players have been invited
to practice in order that a team
might be selected to play a
B.C.A. team in the near future
and I am very glad to see that
the B.C.L. selectors have gone

~

mout things in such a business
iuke manner; put { am one of
those wno was most disappoimntec
at the omission of Clairmonte
De Peiza of St. John Baptist C.C.
from among the invitees. De
Peiza is one of the best all
rounders in local cricket of today.
Why should such talent go un-
cared for overlooked by those
who could help and wouldn’t?
In what way must this young
man sing his praises to catch
tne selectors’ eyes? He tried with
his bat and was not heard, he
tried with the ball only to be
overlaoked, he tried wicket
keeping all to no avail. Then
ana only then must one approve
of the old colloquial saying
“when men have tried their best
and failed angels can't do better.”
If this young man would only
be given a chance to prove his
worth who knows how far he
would reach? As a local bats-
man he is one of the greatest I
have seen before the stumps, and
it is only for one to see
action, his timing is perfect, his
foot work a joy to behold. and
his strokes the most fluent J
have ever seen wielded from a
flashing blade, and yet these
qualities are not yet enough to
gain a player an invitation on a
B.C.L. team, well then I would
only like to see those Dons and
Lens who oe : Hae invited.

Thanks

To The Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Would you kindly allow
me on behalf of the committee to
thank everyone who so kindly
contributed money and gifts for
the Fair held at Woodside on
December 9th.

It is impossible for me to men-
tion all their names, but I would

Clothes And The Man

To The Editor, The Advocate—

SIR,—Are tailors bound by
agreement to put suitable
materials i.e., linings in tweeds—
serges etc?

Last Easter, I gave a tailor a
suit to make, materials, costing
$22.67, he charged me $22.00 for
—a which I have since

It it has flour-bag pockets, “I

instead of changing the pockets
abused me,

I am writing this so that others
may beware, as I believe tailors
shou'd use proper pocketing,
when charging that much for
making a suit.

Ju-C Beverage
Coming Soon

Ju-C, Trinidad’s favourite
beverage, will soon be introduced
into Barbados. A large two-
storey building that is now being
erected at Bay Street, opposite
the Aquatic Club Gap, will house
the Ju-C plant.

This is another step forward in
local enterprise. The firm bot-
tling Ju-C drinks will be called
Bottlers (Barbados) Ltd.
employ local people and use local
sugar for the drinks.

Mr. Chares Ray, formerly Field
Representative for Coca Cola,
who has been connected with bot-
tling for the past ten years, will
be the Managing Director of the
firm.

Mr. Ray told the Advocate yes-
terday that Ju-C drinks will carry
six or seven different
flavours to suit public taste and
demand. The factory will be
built along modern lines and
equipped with modern machinery.
He said that no effort will be

building in keeping with the sur-
rounding district.

There will be special conditions
offered to employees and there
will also be a staff room on the
second floor where classes will be
held. Everyone employed by the
firm will have to attend

classes,
Quick Work

When asked about the local
artisans, Mr. Ray, who has spent
the majority of his years in
Trinidad, said: “I employed 45
men to erect the building and
considering that they have only
started two months ago, they have
accomplished a lot. They are
very interested in their work and
I am pleased with them”.

He said that when the building
is completed and the plant is
working ,he hopes to include a
number of these workmen on his
permanent staff.

The building is
block stone. The steel frame
came from Scotland. It stands 20
feet from the road and this space
will be decorated with lawns and
gardens. It is constructed so as
to allow trucks to drive right in-
side the plant. ,

700 Eyes”
Watch A Ship

FOR the first time for more than
50 years the Navy have gone out
of their way to break a ship in
half.

A modern destroyer, the “Battle”
class Albuera, was chosen for the
test—-which may save other ships
in future. *

The uncompleted Albuera was
put in dry dock at the Naval Con-
struction Research Establishment,
Rosyth, with supports only amid-
ships.

Then 700 electric “eyes” were
placed in various parts of the
ship. Through these gauges, all
the stresses in the Albuera could
be seen in a hut on the dock-
side.

Both ends of the vessel were
slowly filled with water until she
broke her back, About 700 tons of
steel fell into a_ specially con-
structed cradle.

“It was not safe for anybody
to remain on board during the
experiment,” a Naval officer said
to-day. “We did not know just
where the ship would break and
there was the danger from flying
rivets and splinters of metal.”

He had certainly tried to under-

The theft
You hear of people who would

a colleague of mine in Seoul
caught a Gook Woman stealing his
long winter underpants.

To be fair, he wasn’t actually
wearing thém at the time of the
theft. He had left them in a
drawer, and he came into his room
just as the cleaning woman was
making away with them. He
grabbed one end of them and she

hung on to the other and they had
a real tug-of-war before he got
them back.

All the same, they disappeared
next day, and since then he has
seen them protruding below the
cleaning woman's trousers.

A Gook’s Tour of the black mar-
ket in Seoul is an interesting ex-
perience. Every kind of American
equipment you can think of is laid
out openly on the stalls

The canteen had no batteries
for my electric torch the other
day, but on the black market there
were as many as I wanted all from
the American Army stocks.

A Gook colonel who speaks
English told me that he bought his
uniform in the black market.
There was nowhere else he could
get one. He didn’t think there was
anything odd about it, so a Gook
time was had by all.

To Human Beings

GENEVA, Dec. 12
An expert group to-day opened
a six-day session in Geneva,
under joint sponsorship of the
World Health Organization and
the Food and Agriculture Organ-
ization, to formulate recommend-

ations for the control of bovine
tuberculosis and other. animal
diseases communicable to man.
The importance of bovine
tubergulosis as a public health

problem has long been recogn‘™ei!
by health authorities, WHO point-
ed out, Except in Scandinavian
countries the disease is of major
importance in northern, western
and some southern European
countries. It is especialy serious
in the United Kingdom, Eire,
rance, Switzerland, Austria,
Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia

and Italy. In these countries,
between 20 and 60 per cent. of
the cattle are infected. In other
European countries and several

countries of the Eastern Mediter-
ranean area, Africa, Asia, Oceania,
and Central and South America,
the disease is less widespread and
is prevalent mainly in dairy
herds near large population cen-
tres.

Members of the Committee, all
eminent specialists in veterinary
medicine, will formulate guiding
principles for the systematic con-
trol of the following animal dis-



eases transmissible to man: an-
thrax, hydatidosis, Q fever,
psittacosis,



cephalitis.



precemees qutineenemepen

OPENING AT

Two other important animal
diseases communicable to man-
rabies and brucellosis — were

considered by WHO expert com-
suittees earlier this year. As a
res:lt, an extensive anti-rabies
campaign is already under way
in Israel and a study of a new
hyper-immune rabies serum is in
progress in Iran. Thirteen FAO-
WHO brucellosis centres have

In this one yard alone the vaiue
of the tankers building is between
£15 million and £20 million

What a bad start for e

“Before taking Kruschen, I > a
used to wake in the

morning feeling very tired. Now

. have lost all that tiredness and

Kruschen has made me feel years
younger, I also suffered with
cheumatic pains in my shoulders ,
and swellings round my ankles.
I am now completely cured of
these pains and swellings. I take
Kruschen Salts regularly and
cannot speak too highly of ie.






“TL know. One's
first du Maurier is qui e
a revelation, They showed

Kruschen keeps you young me quite a new standard
because it tones up the liver,
kidneys and bowels and keeps
them all working smoothly and
efficiently. The reward of this
interna! cleanliness is a freshened
and invigorated body. Poisonous
waste materiqjs are expelled and
the pains of Theumatism cease.
And as you continue with Kru-
schen, Tr telan te body responds
to its pur ng force.

Kruschen is obtainable from all

of enjoyment,”? 4

The uncompleted Albuera was put in dry dock at the Naval Construction Research Establishment, Rosyth. with supports only amidships. Then 700 electric "eyes" were placed in various parts of the ship. Through these gauges, all the stresses In the Albuera could be seen In a hut on the dockside. Both ends of the vessel were slowly filled with water until sho broke her back.

Drrrinner 20. 193" VESTRIES THE recoil publication ol the nottcM by tin." parochial treasurer* appointing times and places for the Ml \ Mry Elections serves to notify ntgfayan that during a long periml of festivities they must prepare for an important civic duty. It is true that the period of election has been fixed by statute for some time now but it is clear that this is an inconvenient season for vestry gtaCtiOOR. The importance of the functions oi these bodies is not fully appreciate*! even by those who are called upon to elect vestrymen. In this island, the stitute In truth and fact our local government They are charged by statute with responsibility for health and sanitary jtervices. and our widest form of social service in the form of poor relief. These are the services which touch intimately the life and well being of the individual. It is only within recent years that the Commissioners of Highways in each parish haw been displaced by the Central Road Board and now the DtptftflMnt of High w ay s. It is still the right of the vestry in each parish to take over the roads of any district which arc in need of repair before they can be done by the government department. And so important are these functions that the Vestries are authorised by the law to lay rates on land and on trade to carry out these duties under pain of penalty. If this importance is udmitted then It should be realised that the functions of any body which touch so intimately the life of the people who till the land, carry on trade and who own property should be as a matter of course, the subject of greater public interest. It is well nigh impossible for the ratepayers of the parishes to take that interest in vestry elections during the Christmas festivities This continued lack of" interest has now resulted in the fragmentary knowledge which the ratepayers show in the composition and functions of the vestries. And it is clear that vestries can only function at their best and members discharge their duties efficiently when there is an intelligent interest by the ratepayers in the details of that work. It is not necessary to have contested elections every year or to launch wholesale criticism against vestrymen and everything they do in order to show interest in their work; an intelligent interest in their proceedings and the reasons for their decisions is a factor which will contribute to the efficient working of the system. The time has come when there should be greater influence exercised by the vestries of this island so that there would be left to the Executive Committee and so the Central Government, the task of merely initiating and directing general policy. The general method of conducting health services could be indicated by the Central Government and the details left to the vestries. This would be the means of deploying administration and a greater number of people would be able to take part more directly in the conduct of public affairs. Any examination of the system and its general benefits to the community must revive the question as to what is to be done with the Maude Report on local government. It was realised long ago that the vestry system would be compelled to submit to modernisation or fall by the wayside. Its functions are so necessary to the life of the community that it is extreme I v important that they be examined once again in the light of present day demands. If the modernising is lo come by way of the recommendations of Sir John Maude then it is time that something be done. The fate of so important an Institution should not be left lo chance. This is. to say the least, trifling with the well being of the entire community. riii'isinias Treat THE .suggestion made in these column* during this week that a ioant Christmas Tree be raised In Trafalgar Square in place of Ihe old evergreen which has now fallen, raise un intriguing point First the suggestion is interesting.

This is a tale of the early SJSJMSJSSJI hundreds, when almost every day jaw some new and fascinating development in industrial technique. Foremost among the tangible [' signs of progress were the huge new gasholders springing up around Britain's ex, panding manufacturing towns, unsightly inI stallations admittedly, but tribute to the genius of Scottish-bred William Murdoch, the man who pioneered the commercial use of gas as a source of light and heat. One of the largest gas-works was built or. the outskirts of Glasgow, a plant which proved an understandable magnet to a certain young chemist who had already won wide respect over his processes for treatingwoollen and cotton yarn. He was especially IntsiglMd by the great heap o waste inaasjiftali %  blacl. treacly mass--which daily accumulated • a corner of the gasworks' yard. Even.ually his curiosity—and his business acumen—prompted him to offer to remove the stuff >t he could have it free. The equally shrewd gasworks manager stipulated that, if he took one waste-product for nothing, he must buy the other by-products at a fair price, but the young chemist accepted the compromise. He found no JjJ difficulty in marketing the coal tar and j f residual oils; only the remaining crude napiha seemed worthless. Nevertheless, its new owner was determined to make this "white elephant" serve some purpose After endless experiments, he tried dissolving some rubber in the naptha—and evolved the first rubber solution. His discovery seemed to him a miraculous means of combatting one particular discomfort which especially annoyed him and which Glasgow's winter climate rendered an almost daily occurrence: getting his clothes soaked by rain. He liberally covered a length of tweed cloth with his new solution and then told his tailoi to make him a topcoat from the treated material. The next week, the ingenious chemist—Charles Macintosh—was striding cheerfully through Glasgow's heaviest downpours, wearing the prototype of the garment to which he thus gave his name. D. V.

A reaction against surartists of today. ol — To-day. we take "mackintoshes" for granted. Indeed. Macintosh himself would have a shock if he could see just how far we have progressed in methods of manufacturing these indispensable garments. Preparing rubberised solutions has been radically simplified by use of various petroleum products which not only facilitate the mixing procedure but which give added softness and elasticity to the rubber. Some "plastic" raincoats are, in fact, made from materials themselves manufactured from petroleum by-products. For that matter, if the inventor of the "mac" were practising chem istry to-day. he could make himself a complete wet-weather outfit—sou'wester, stormcoat and goloshes—from petroleum-based synthetic rubber. But nothing that has been discovered since detracts from Charles Macintosh's inventiveness and enterprise. Next time you defy a real monsoon deluge with your faithful raincoat, spare a thought for the man who founded the fashion. Counetl Our lleau>r Smy : iVo Applauaet No Bouquet*? No Theatre?

Where there >hould have been curtain calls for the director, at least, and for the two leads whose solid wellsustained performances (not to b" compared, incidentally, to a few minutes caricature) really deserved them, there wasn't even one round of genuine applause.

May I suggest to Col Michelm that the Policewomen be detailed to keep an eye out this WMk for the hawkers who ar* hoarding eggs in the hope of getting fantastic prices, also poultry etc most of them have said openly what prices they hope to gel out of the cornered housewife While on this subject may I suRgest that these Policewomen be Issued with a blue beret with red patch (I attended the Remembrance Day Service at the Cathedral and It did look ludicrous the four helmets and spikes stickln* up amongst the other ranks) In fact it l time the entire force was issued with blue berets to conform with the Barbados Regiment on combined parades. Low -hoes for the Girls I entirely agree with, however, I should like to see hose with Red hose tops added, together with a white Spat or Gaiter, and skirts more of the Kil' type or at least a few more box pleets. Not forgetUng the SgV Majors of Scottish r'-glments who used to ptand at the Barrack gate and inspect the miii Ki-ing out on leave 10 IM that they did not have on shorts SANDY. Wanted; Angel To The Editor. The Adrocote— Sir.—I have seen in your issue Of the lth. that tci.t\ R league players have been invited to practice In order that a team might be selected to play a B.C.A. team in the rear future and I am very glad to see that the B.C.L selectors luive gone about things in such a business nre manner; out l am one of inose wno was most a IN appointee at the omission of ClairmonUDe Peiza of St. John Baptist C.C from among the invitees. De l*elza is one of the best all rounders in local cricket of today. Why should such talent go uncared for overlooked by those vho could help and wouldn't" In what way must this young man sing his praises to catch ine selectors' eyes? He tried with h.* bat and was not heard, he tried with the ball only to b*over*oked. ho tried wlckci keeping all to no avail. Ther iiiio" only then must one approve of the old colloquial saying "when men have tried their best and failed angels can't do better." if this young man would onl" be given a chance to prove his worth who knows how far he would reach? As a local batsman he Is one of the greatest I have seen before the stumps, and it Is only for one to see rtlin In action, his timing Is perfect, his foot work a toy to behold, .it.-' his strokes the most fluent have ever seen wielded from a flashing blade, and yet these qualities are not yet enough to ,:-iin a player an invitation on a B.C L. team, well then 1 would only like to see those Dons and Lens who have been invited.
