C.D.C. Should Do More

Manley’s View of Unemployment Problem

(From Our Own Correspondent) .
LONDON, Feb. 2.

ME. NORMAN MANLEY, K.C., leader of the

been one of the latest victims of Britain’s influenza
epidemic. Shortly after his arrival last week he
caught the germ. For four days he was confined to
bed at his London hotel. Now, however, he is fully
recovered and pursuing his activities so intently

War May Cost
U.S. 1 Billion $

N YORK, Feb. 8.

The Second World War may cost
the United s clase on $1,000,
006,000,000 in pensions services and
privileges for ex+servicemen, it
was said here today.

The cost of war might continue
for more than 100 years and might
amount to “many times” the direct
cost of fighting.

The National Industrial Confer-
ence Board in an analysis of ex-
servicemen’s benefits granted un-
der hundreds of federal laws add-
ed that these had already cost the
country more than $6,000,000,000
per year since the war ended six
years ago.

Present expenditure on behalf of
American ex-servicemen reached
a total second only to the amount
allocated for national defence, it
said, —Reuter.

forcements were thrown on to the

Michael had refused to go to

locked the door of the nursery |

Peace overtures by both

Trinidad it is necessary to deposit the sum
of one hundred dollars and to satisfy the
immigration authority of the length of the
proposed stay in that island. At the ex-
piration of the proposed period the visitor
must leave the island of his own accord or
be hailed before the Court as a prohibited
immigrant and then repatriated.

The amendment to the Act brings all
visitors to the island under Police notice
and this alone affords a certain amount of
protection against undesirable characters
and others who although not of the crim-
inal class should have their activities
watched. It is not impossible that with the

ascertain from them the length of time
they propose to stay so that their return

Life With The Atom Bomb

LAS VEGAS, Nev., Feb.

At 5:46 o'clock on Sunday
morning Jan. 28th Bob Alexan-
der’s wife shook him awake in
their bungalow on South Second
Street and said “you better get up.
I saw aq bright light, I think some-
one’s turning in the driveway.”

The Alexanders have a reputa-
tion for dispensing hospitality at
any hour in the twenty-four, and
so Mrs, Alexander made a dive for
the kitchen to get the coffee pot
started and Bob dashed into the
bathroom to scrape the Saturday
night whiskers from his face,

Mrs. Bob hoped to. have the
coffee under way and Bob at ‘east
one side of his face presentable
before the knock came at the door,
but the knock never came. The
door opened itself, the coffee pot
bounced across the stove and
Bob’s shaving mirror rocked like
crazy.

The fact of the matter was that
the Alexanders were experiencing
the backwash of the third and
largest- blast yet set off at -the
Atomic Energy Commission’s New
test range approximately a hun-
dred miles north of this desert
mecca for those who pursue the
dice table and the winter sun,

When it dawned on the Alexan-
ders that something big and per-
suasive had happened at the Las

There was a report, however,

In a speech which lent a decided fillip to Lord

that it would be possible to modify the

rison pointed out to the Tory peers that the
aesthetic sensibilities of the Labour peers
were of an equal acuteness, He did not how-
ever assure the House that the Government
would consider the suggestions which had
been put forward in the course of the debate.
It also emerged in his summing-up that the
calling of tenders for the purpose of excava-
ting the foundations of the new building had
only just been arrested.
Works were within ten days for tenders for
the excavation,” said Lord Morrison.

Race Conscious Servicemen

THE majority of ‘coloured ser-
vicemen, West Indians, Americans
and Africans, who served in Eng-
land, or Wales during ‘the last war
were extremely race conscious.
For this reason they gathered at
specific centres in many of the
large cities instead of mixing
freely among the English or Welsh
population,

This was not necessary in the
United Kingdom because an un-
equalled hospitality was extended
to foreign servicemen regardless
of colour or creed. By adopting
this attitude many of these ser-
vicemen were unable to visit his-
toric and beauty spots in the U.K.

When a coloured ‘serviceman
dropped in at Manchester the first

»place he would visit for accomms-

dation would be the King George's
Hostel. This hostel was in a dingy
building of about four storeys.
For the most of the time the place
is over crowded with coloured
servicemen. Although they are
many other hostels and a Y.M.C.A.
with a swimming pool, he would
still prefer the King George's
Hostel.

At Manchester and on the out-
skirts there are many large dance
halls but the coloured serviceman
would always choose the crowded
Plaza Ballroom at Oxford Street
when -he was going to a dance,

By RAF.

Year after year the Plaza Ballroom *

became more and more crowded
with servicemen. When it wus
not a quarrel between. the Afri-
eans and the West Indians it was
one between the Americans and
the Africans, Eventually the
Plaza was closed sometimes be-
tween 1945—46 and one of the
most outstanding Ladies’ Orches-
tras in England, which provided
the music, travelled to another
part of the country. ;

Ev.n to have a drink the ¢ol-~

oured serviceman with an in-
feriority complex had to see an-
other crowd of his race before he
could be comfortable. For a mug
of ale he would walk about a mile
out of the centre of Manchester
to the Crown Pub. In this pub
the atmosphere is always tense—
the rustle of a rat may cause a
fight,

Whenever a coloured service-
man alighted from a train at Liy-
erpool the first place he would ask
for is “Wilkie’s Club”. He would
roam all over the town until he
stumbled on to this Club then he
would feel at home. Wilkie is a
coloured man himself and_ his
doors were always opened to col-
oured servicemen,

~

In London it was the Westmin-
ster Y.M.C.A. for. sleeping accom-

--modation and = Paramount, Ball-

room at Tottehham Court’ Road
for dancing. «Paramount was:

sometimes called “Deserters Hote”

or “Harlem”, For a Military
deserter he only had to visit the
Patamount Ballroom in the heat
ofa Jazz Session.

fT was privilegéd to. witness a
squad of Canadian, American and
English Military Policemen enter
this ballroom in search of desert-
ers. It was somewhat like a spot
dance. As soon as they entered
they ordered the musie to stop and
the couples to remain where they
were.

It was sometimes easy to pick
out a deserter. Although there
would be no music he would try
to dance his partner aroung the’
floor in the direction of the near-
est exit. If he waS not caught in-
side he would run into the arms
of the Policemen outside.

“Fullado Club” at .Leicester
Street was also one of the London
haunts. It wasS more difficult to
enter this Club. You are surveyed

unusual to see an American with

pocket.
{The London authorities closed
a in an effort





to get the hundyéds of coloured
people that flock@@ there’ to dis-
tribute themselves other

dance halls and mix with the

Londoners.

On the other hand English peo-
ple were only too glad to welcome
a coloured serviceman into their
homes to join them with their
afternoon tea or mid-day lunch,

Christmas 1946 saw residents of
Dartford, Kent, sending to the
local Y.M.C.A, enquiring if they
had any servicemen: booked in.
Regardless of colour or creed they
took in one serviceman each in
their hames to spend Christmas
Day. Those who cared to pay a
return visit on the Christmas
Bank-Holiday did so.

In many other villages and
small towns these incidents oc-
curred daily but still coloured
servicemen preferred to stick to
their specific centres in large
cities,

The letter was written to Col. Charles Pat-
terson, ret., who attended West Point with
MacArthur and later became his Chief of
Staff. It was in reply to Patterson’s congratu-
lations to MacArthur on the General’s 71st
birthday, Jan. 26th.

Published with Col. Patterson’s permission
in the Griffin, Ga. Daily News, the letter

stated:

“Thank: you so much for your fine birth-

day letter, which has just reached me. It

| brought back so vividly the lifelong affection
that has united us,

“The going in Korea is tough. We had
about cleaned up the North Koreans when
suddenly China hurled her entire military
might at our relatively small force.
the handicaps and delimitations imposed
upon us, we have had a difficult time to
maintain the integrity of our troops and some
degree of stability in the general situation.
Rees what is in store I do not know but the
confusion which exists in the political rami-
fications which have determined military

actions have perhaps never been equalled in
i military history.”

Few Houses In B’dos
Can Beat This For Age

THERE is an old wall and brick three-storey building
up Government Hill, “Windsor Lodge”, which children used
to call Solomon O’Grundy’s Lodge more than 150 years ago.
At present two greying ladies, the Misses Hutchinson who
fit in well with the antiquity of the house, live there,

These old ladies moved into “Windsor Lodge” 62 years
ago when their uncle who was then’of G.W. Hutchinson

& Co., bought the place.

At “Windsor Lodge” there is a
crisp piece of paper on which is |
written a copy of a newspaper
item of about 200 years ago when
the building was advertised for
sale. The ink is now faded.

At the time 15 acres of land was
attached to the house and. the
grounds were enclosed witha log- |
wood hedge. It hada big orchard
with 150 Jamaican palm trees and
many other fruit trees. Today the
palm trees are gone and many of
the acres sold, but there still re-
mains about 60 mahogany trees,
the trunk of one of which is about
14 feet in circumference.

Among the trees which are to
the front of the house and at the
side of the driveway, tall African
Bow Hemp bush grows, The Afri-
can Bow Hemp is beaten out, dried
and used for making baskets and
hats. It is a plant which is hard
to be rid of. Big lizards like to
run between this bow hemp.

More than 200 years ago the
people of “Windsor Lodge” used
to get water from the 40-foot
square tank that is a short distance
from the house. The tank is now
filled up and fruit’ trees grow
where the ripples of the water
once were. :

Near the tank is a small, solid
wall building where a queerly
constructed pump is still kept.

Funny Nooks

The house is a rambling sort of
house with funny nooks. Through
the ceiling of the third floor there
is a hole which leads to a dark
room on the top. It is called the
box room and nobody ever goes
up there now. When you look at
this hole you would wonder
whether the first p
house had to seek re
the days of robbers. ~

The building is on a rising and
from the third floor you can see
the sea off St. James coast, the
pleasant undulating land that is
St. Thomas’ hills, the green val-
leys of St. George and feel the
wind blowing cool on the hottest
day.

There is something about the
architectural design of this house
which makes it seem snug. There
is not the light touch of the mod-
ern houses and this top floor must
have been built to induce sleep
for the rooms up there are bed-
rooms and dressing rooms, with
every room a partial library. The
Misses Hutchinson have a good
stock of old books, quite in keep-
ing with this aged building.

Clock You Can Hide In

When electricity came to Bar-
bados, “Windsor Lodge” was one
of the. first houses to be equipped
with it. The other day workmen
were replacing the wire and the
old frayed one was dropping to
pieces in the workmen’s hands.

Some years ago when the Misses
Hutchinson were away from home,
part of the ceiling of a room fell
in.

in the course of the next few

Wins Ath

Test By 274 Runs

(From W. J.

O’REILLY)
ADELAIDE, Feb. 8,

The last day’s play in this characterless Adelaide Test,
has driven home a lesson to each of the two teams and to

those who chose them.

Devanshire,
Carlton Play
To 1—1 Draw

A TEAM from the H.M.S, Dev-
onshire and a Carlton side played
to a one all draw in their football
match at the Carlton grounds yes-
terday evening.

The game was fairly fast and
very interesting. On many occa-
sions the sailors failed to find their
men and passes went wide. Carl-
ton’ ¢ombined very well, but miss-
ed many opportunities in the goal
area,

The goal for Carlton was scored
by Kennie Hutchinson in the first
half, He beat the Navy goalie Lau-
charne with a well placed shot.
When the second half was only a
few seconds old the Navy scored
the equalizer, Their opponents only
touched the ball once before the
goal was scored, Callachan beat
the Carlton custodian, King, with
a niee shot in the left corner of
the nets after receiving a pass
from Alltimes,

The teams were as follows:

Marshall, Clairmonte, Cox; Hall,
R. St. C. Hutchinson, K. St, C.
Futchinson, N. S. Lucas (Capt.),
and F, St. C. Hutchinson.

H.M.S. Devonshire: Laucharne:

Nevitt, Francis, Campbell, Wil-
liams, Callachan, Allitimes, Evans,

WHEN-A LADY

——

: King; Sisnett, Kennedy;

Firstly England’s batting.
throughout this season has shown
a pronounced lack of determina-
tion and _ responsibility in the
majority of the batsmen who have
played in the Test.

Apart from Hutton who has done
© grand job honestly, no English-
man has really pulled his weight
with the bat. In Adelaide to-day
England had a splendid chance to
draw the game.

It is useless to argue that the
hopeless position of the game was
not sufficient inspiration for a
dour fight. A drawn game here
would have softened the effect
that a recitation of the perform-
ances of Brown’s team on this tour
will have on young England.

But — apart from David Shep-
pard, who tried every inch of the
way, and seerned prepared to fight
his way through to close of play,
no other katsman récognised the
importance of making a last ditch
fight of it.

Simpson Threw Hand Away

Simpson, who does not lack
ability, threw his wicket away five
minutes before the lunch adjourn.
ment, It is an elementary rule
with batsmen that particular care
must be taken just prior to an. ad-
journment so that a new batsman
will not be geetihens by having
to make a start at that time.

It has been suggested that
Simpson threw his wicket away
intentionally because he was legi-
timately caught at short leg by
Lindwall off Johnston’s bowling,
and adjudged not out by the um-
pire. If the decision was wrong
there was no justification for sui-
cide in a Test match.

Evans played shots at a time

when shots did not matter q hang, ,

Bedser did likewise. And England
lost the match as usual. Until
England’s batsmen buckle down
to the job and play it as hard as
they can all the time, with never
flagging concentration, they will
always find it difficult to beat
Australia in a Test.

Attack Wilted
_ On the other hand, the Austra-
lian attack wilted so badly during
the day that our selectors must be
prepared to admit that their pol-
ley of disregarding legspin bow]-
ing is fundamentally foolish.

When Sheppard and Simpson
were batting confidently before
lunch, the attack was bankrupt
The mercurial Miller, by collect'ng
three quick wickets, finished cif
the game but did not hoodwink
those who realised that the Aus-
tralian bowling had been com-
Pay, exposed.

If Weekes and Worrell are as
good as Englishmen say they are,
our attack needs some bolstering
up before they arrive next season.

Our fast bowlers have almost
run their course and the offspin-
ners Johnson and Iverson are cer-
tainly not attacking bowlers.

I feel certain that the present
Australian team would fare badly
with the team which Hammond
brought to Australia in 1946.

College, Island
Defeat Navy

In the Water Polo match yes-
terday afternoon at the Barbados
Aquatic Club Harrison College
swamped a Cadet team from the
H.M.S. Devonshire nine goals to
love.

Each member of the Harrison
College team with the exception
of R. Feldman scored. He was
just about to have a try at tha
Navy goal when the final whistle

went.

Billy Manning scored four
goals for Harrison College and
Frankie Manning, Jeoffrey Jordan,
Mickey Weatherhead, Eric John-
son and Allan Taylor scored one
each,

The referee was R. Fairall. In
the other match the Barbados
team defeated H.M.S. Bevonshire
three goals to one. For Barbados
Mickey Jordan scored two goals
and George MacLean one. Bar.
bados scored all three goals in
the first half. The Navy got their
lone goal late in the second half
when Cadet Coleman scored with
a well placed shot.

Chief feature of the game was
the excellent goal keeping of the
Navy custodian Bill Bland. Al-
though three goals were scored
on him he must have saved a
dozen other certainties. The Bar
bados players tried their best but
could not get past him with theiy
many tries, The referee was Mr,
Archie Clarke.

The teams were:—

BARBADOS, ADVOCATE



Wales For The

Triple

By PETER

Crown

DITTON
LONDON, January 26.

WHO would be bold enough to say that this will not
be another victorious year for Welsh Rugby. After the

overwhelming defeat of England at St. He

ens, Swansea—

the biggest since 1922 — the odds against Wales retaining
the Triple Crown, already small, shortened even further.
In the circumstances this was only to be expected.

The Welshmen gave the type of
display one usually associates only
with visiting Dominion teams.
The combination between the for-
wards and backs was the finest
seen in Britain for years and the
way in which the ball was flung
about was a joy to watch,

The English team have been
vigorously condemned for putting
up such a feeble resistance and
have been described as one of the
worse ever to wear the white jer-
sey. Such criticism in my opinion
is not just. There were weakness-
es in the English team, particular-
ly in the tackling of the centre-
threes. This was all the more
surprising as Oakley had been
given his first ‘cap’ in order that
his crash-tackling could be pitted
against the straight running of
Jack Matthews, But it was just
one of those things that did not
work and although the covering
might have been better I am in-
clined to believe that the chief
English fault was lack of speed,

Even allowing for the margin of
defeat, there need not necessarily
be a lot of changes in the next
English team for the game against
ireland in Dublin on February
10th. It seems highly probable
that hard-running John Smith of
Cambridge University will be re-
called on the wing and places
will certainly have to be found in
the pack for both Carpenter, the
captain, unable to play against
Wales, and Rittson-Thomas who
was called in to the pack as a
late substitute. But whatever other
changes the selectors make, they
ean take heart that their chosen
XV are unlikely to run up against
quite such strong opposition again
this season,

This Welsh team is undoubtedly
powerful. Emphasising this point
is the significant fact that Bleddyn
Williams, vice-captain of the Brit-
ish Isles team recently return-
ed from Australia and New Zea-
Jand, is unable to command a place
in the side. And yet Williams if he
were qualified for England, I:e-
land or Scotland would be wel-
comed by any of those countries
with open arms. It speaks volumes
also that Newport, the only team
in Great Britain with a 100%
record this season, have only two
players, three-quarter Ken Jones
and wing-forward R, T, Evans in
the Welsh XV,

Competition 1s strenuous with
such great individuals in the team
as Roy John, John Gwilliam,
Cliff Davies, Glyn Davies, Ken
Jones, Jack Matthews and Lewis

Under the inspired leadership |
of John Gwilliam the pack has
been built up and modelled on the

two years ago ‘steam-rollered’ the
men in green to their second suc-
cessive Triple Crown victory. But
whereas the strength of the Irish
team lay almost entirely in the

what makes this Welsh team such

NORMAN MANLEY, K C .loader of the People's National Party of Jamaica, has been one of the latest victims of Britain's influenza epidemic Shortly after his arrival last week he caught the germ. For four days he was confined to bed at his London hotel. Now, however, he is fully recovered and pursuing his activities so Intently that until his departure on February 7th, he will have little or no time to spare. Kalian Peasants Evacuate Homes ROME, Feb. 8 Italian peasants hastily left their hamlets in snow-buried v.,1leys today as avalanches roared down the slopes of Alpine peaks along the Swiss and Austrian borders. In the mountains north of Bergamo authorities evacuated a village and several exposed farmsWacU. Dig avalanches cut communications at one town.

Italy, Feb. 8.

From London hp flies to New York, and thence to several other large American el ties, at each of which he will meet and talk with members of the West Indian comi.'. unity. He has a high opinion of these Weal Indian groups In America. He welcomes their interest. He believes they exercise a powerful in.Uior.ep for good in the Islands. The interest they take in the island elections, for example, is a great stimulant and he says that it was the West Indian communities in America which were instrumental in obtaining what degrees of selfgnvrrr.ment Jamaica has today. Vast Difference At the same time he appreciates the vast difference between those W.st Indians living in America and those still in the Caribbean, particularly so far as the standard nf living is concerned. In his view the standards pertaining In the West Indies cannot under present circumstances, and may not even in the future, equal those enjoyed by the West lndlon communities in the United States. The main reason lie gives for this is the West Indies' vast unemployment problem. "There arc far too many people out of work in the islands,' he says, "and Jamaica's problem is particularly serious. No one can suggest a really effective answer." Seasonal labour demands In the sugar industry provide some relief and it is hoped soon that Jamaican workmen may be employed In the United States which will help to lessen the problem. But even these measures are not sufficient. fost-sji Jntnalce alone Manley puts the Total unemployed as high as 30 per cent of the population—a figure Which Is increasing steadily v far. He feels that further assisla to combat this very real UP C — Uloymcnt threat could be afforded by the Colonial Development Corporation, who. ne declares quite candidly, arc net doing much for Jamaica. What he vAiuld like to see Is Corporation backing for Jamaica's agricultural development %  ChaRM '." increase produetlor itrus fruit and to carry out agricultural experiments. Welcomes Federation He docs not share the view of some West Indians that unemployment would be automatical'. solved with the coming of federation, Manley. however.

The latest report on the strike was that while negotiation! between employers and employees are still deadlocked, the strike has been fading liecause of 1he back-to-work movement after appeals by national leaders. Questioned after his statement, the President referred to the background for the "sick call' walkout of shunters. He said that •green* ent had been signed and the management did not run out on it.

He would also like to associate the name of the Barbneex AJvefatr for the splendid articles tbey had been writing, pointing out to the Government the necessity of doing something to assist the Hotel Industry. He was very closely associated with the Tourist Industry and he could tell them that at the present time It was exceedingly difficult to get hotel accommodation In the Island, tie felt that while the Government had been good enough to increase within th,last year, the amount of money voted to thc Publicity Committee, it was now up to them also to five support to the Hotel Industry to that there might be an increase of hotels in the Island. Private Brochure He would suggest that any one who was thinking along the lines expressed by Mr. Taylor, could da what Messrs. Da Costa A Co., Ltd., had done. They had printed their own brochure and in Spanish, so thst their Venezuelan friends could understand something; about the place, where to shop. etc. On his several trips to Caracas he had gradually worked on the tourist business between Veoeluela and this island. Since he h-d been appointed Vice-Consul for that country in 1947, the number of vissa granted by bim at tha Consulate for persons to ratmii t Venezuela after holidaying M Barbados, had Increased from 170 that year to almost 2,000 last year. The number this year was already hifh. He thought that the tourist business with Venezuela was going to develop very rapid and they had to look after tne necessary accommodation for the visitors Finally Mr. Knight pointed out that the Mexican Government who about fifteen years ago resented the idea of tourists visiting the country, were now 100 per cent tourist-minded. He hoped the time would come when the Barbados Government like Mexico, would see what a • %  Fage 1 eebever fii fedcratien and says "Federation will come but net nec ess a rily quickly. It may be years before we are united under a federal Government." He would welcome the formation of a West Indies federation for tne improvements he believes it would bring aboa in administration and the pooling of ideas. But he labours under Bo delusion that Federation of ltaelf will solve the West indie* economic and unemployment problems. He naturally feels that socialism correctly applied would be most bencnclal for the future of the West Indies and for that reason he has token great inter*** in Britain's Socialist Government. Al the same time he realise* th.it floctsjbsm has to be applied in different way* for different countries and he does not suggest that British Socialism which has brought free health services and nationalisation would be beitor even practical for Jamaica. "We must applv tbe particular brand of Socialism which Is best for our island." he saidContinuation of a Socialist Government in Britain. Manley feels. might turn the balance of political power in his favour at the next General election. But he is also optimistic enough to believe that if Britain's Socialists are thrown out Jamaica's Socialists will not lose any ground politically. U.K. GOVT.

This was due to the fact that Barbadians arc to be found in all parts of the world but it has now led to a condition which can no longer be ignored. A bill to transfer from the Harbour and Shipping Master to the Police the control df immigration was passed by the House of Assembly during the week and during the course of the debate the fear was expreised that the number of traders and other people who come to this island with no specific object is increasing to dangerous proportions. Within the last year a certain number of visitors arriving in this island have caused embarrassment to the authorities. There can be no legitimate objection to the entry of people who come to do business or to live here on independent means but as one member pointed out there are people who come with no specific object in view and they lend to reduce the already low standard of living. Barbadians who live under conditions brought about by having to support approximately 200,000 people on 65,000 arable acres and keep them living at 1,100 to the square mile, cannot afford to harbour among them people who contribute nothing to their own nor the wehare of the community. Jt is not intended to prevent people from coming to Barbados but there should be some means of imposing such restrictions that those who do come will be in a sufficiently strong financial position to support themselves and to pay their passages back home. In the neighbouring colony of Trinidad it is necessary to deposit the sum of one hundred dollars and to satisfy the immigration authority of the length of the proposed stay in that island. At the expiration of the proposed period the visitor must leave the island of his own accord or be hailed before the Court as a prohibited immigrant and then repatriated. The amendment to the Act brings all visitors to the island under Police notice and this alone affords n certain amount of protection against undesirable characters and others who although not of the criminal class should have their activities watched. It is not impossible that with the free and easy methods in Barbados for considerable harm to be done in more ways than one before the perpetrator is discovered or the evil itself brought to light. It should not be impossible under another amendment to the same Act to lix a sum for deposit by people entering the island and to give the Police an opportunity to ascertain from them the length of time they propose to slay so that their return to their homeland might be ensured. BOX US IT should have been unnecessary for Mr. D. D. Garner, member for St. Philip to have to raise in the Hpuse of Assembly the point of the amount of bonus which had not been paid to the labourers at Dodds plantation. The report of Professor Beasley over a year ago set out the proportions which should be paid and the percentages which should be divided among workers on sugar plantations. The members of the political party which now compose the members of the Government have been strong in their denunciations of those who even delay such payments. The matter would have been easily settled if the Government had announced its intention of paying the bonus of which Mr. Garner spoke. the next vo;c Mr Atllee would go against to make unemployed *<* extraordinary •1-mtner. would rui " * tt J*L 1,r out ot vrock to become coal down exports, arm* production His position is very prccan< i onuumption.

The decision to acquire a site of Ihe Old Westminster Hospital in order to build a new Colonial Office there, was taken by the Government in 1946; but work on the Colinial Office has been postponed. Towards the end of last year after the demolition of he Westminster Hospital building, the British public began to realise that the erection of the projected building would interfere with the architectural scales and harmonies if Westminster Abbey and the Westminster Central Hall, especially near the western tpproach facing Victoria Street. There is now a stronger feeling than ever .hat the new Colonial Office should not go up m this site, or at least, if built, it should be nodified. This opinion was reflected in a rlouse of Lords debate this week, when Lord blottistone (whose father was Under-Secreary of State for the Colonies in a Liberal Government before 1914) in a maiden speech, lrgued with considerable persuasion that :he site should remain an open space or altertatlvely. the frontage of the Colonial Office .hnuld be moved. "The accommodation needed by the Colonial Office cannot be found by replanning." said Lord Mottistone, who is an architect, "then let a smaller Department be housed in the new building which must replace the Old Stationery Office, ind let another site be allocated to the Colinial Office where there may be room and to spare without disservice to neighbouring buildings." In referring to the alternative proposals which may be adopted, Lord Mottistone asked — "My Lords, cannot we by rome means keep this blessed plot free from building?" The field of unconverted speakers in the Lords Debate was led by Lord Halifax, who argued for leaving the site an open space. In a speech which lent a decided fillip to Lord Mottistone's motion, Lord Silkin, the former Minister of Town and Country Planning, appealed to the Government for a reconsideration of the position. His argument was that it would be possible to modify the building to satisfy the objections raised without diminishing in any way the accommodation which the Colonial Office needs. Lord Samuel, the Liberal leader, and wittiest Peer, urged the setting back of the Colonial Office. "It does appear the area will be a terrible jumble, if the present plans are carried out," he said. He was supported by Lord Swinton. To leave the site as an open ipace, argued Lord Chorley, would be an aesthetic blunder. There were peers, however, who were indifferent whether the site was left an open space or the building sel back. D. V. SCOTT & CO, LTD. TO-DAYS SPECIALS at THE COLONNADE l'ks.

Americans and Africans, who served in England, or Wales during the last war were extremely race conscious. For this reason they gathered at specific centres in many of th.ling.' cities instead of mixin;: frii-iy amons tinfelglllb ur W. I popuimion. Tins was not M C M m y In tht United Kingdom because an uneqiuil'ed hospitality was extended lo foreign *er\ uvinen icRardiaM of colour or creed, lly adopts; this attitude many of these servicemen were unable to visit hisloric and beauty spots in the U.K. When a coloured serviceman dropped In at Manchester the first BlaM he would visit for acconun .dution would be the King George J Hostel. This hostel was in a dingy building of about four storeys. For the most of the time the place is over crowded with colouieti servicemen. Although Ihey arc many other hostels and a Y.M C A with a swimming pool, he would still prefer the King George'.; %  tOStal At Manchester and on the outskirts there are many large U..n hallfl but the coloured serviceman would always choose the crowded Plaza Ballroom at Oxford Street when lie was going lo a dame. By R.A.F. iwea Year after year the Plasa Ballroom became more and wort, crowded with servicemen When it wits not a quarrel between the Africans and the West Indians il vgsl one between the Americans and the Africans. Eventually tls • Plaza was closed sometimes between 145—4tf ami one of the mosl outstanding Ijiilies' Orchestras in England, which provided the music, travelled lo .mother part of the country Ev.n to have ; %  di ink ihe coloured serviceman wlih an inferiority complex had 10 see another crowd of his race before he could be comfortable. For a mug of ale he would walk about a mile oul of the centre of Manchester to the Crown Pub. In this puh Ihe atmosphere is always tense— the rustic of a rai may cause a light. Whenever a coloured Mivueman alighted Irom a tr.nn at Liverpool the Ant place lie would ask for is "Wilkie's Club". He would roam all over Ihe town until he stumbled on to this Cl.tb than hi would feel at home. Wilkie is u coloured man himself and his doors were always opened to coloured servicemen. I:i London il was the Westminster Y.M.C.A. for sh-eping accommodalion and Paramount Ballroom at Toitonham Court Road for dancing. Paramount Was .sometimes called "Desciters Huh.'" or "Harlem' Toi a Military Policeman lo capture a colountst deserter he only had to rait the Paramount Ballroom in Ihe heat of a Jarr Session. I was privileged to witness a squad of Canadian. American and English Military Policemen enter this ballroom in search of deserters. It was somewhat like a spot dance As soon as they entered they ordered the mu*ic to stop and the couples to remain where they It was sometimes easy to pick out a deserter. Although there would be no musk he would try to dance his partner mound *he" floor in the direction of the nearest exit. If he was n>jl rough* inside he would run into the arms of the Policemen outside. "Fullado Club" at Leicester Street wns also one of the London haunts. It was more difficult to enter this Club You re surveyed by men looking through two "peep-ho.es" before being ullo< Initda. There were Jtgular "show downs" at this Club and it was not unusual to see an American with two large scars in his face and u AS calibre revolfer in his hip pocket The London author.ties closed Paramount i.vcntly in an effort to get the iHindrM* of coloured people thai rtoem thento distribute themselves^gmosig other dance halls and mix with the I undone is. On the other hand English people were only too glad to welcome a coloured serviceman into their homes to join them with their nfternoon tea or mid-day lunch. Christmas 1946 saw residents of Dartford. Kent, sending to the local Y.M.C.A. enquiring If Uu-v had any servicemen booked in. Regardless of colour or creed they look in one seiviceman each in their homes to sawnd Chruilmak Day Those who cared to pay i. return visit on the Christmas Bank-Holiday did so. In many other village! and small towns these incidents occurred daily but still coloured servicemen preferred to stick to their specific centres in lorge Cit:S. In replying for the Government, Lord Morrison pointed out to the Tory peers that the aesthetic sensibilities of the Labour peers were of an equal acuteness. He did not however assure the House that the Government would consider the suggestions which had been put forward in the course of the debate. It also emerged in his summing-up that the calling of tenders for the purpose of excavating the foundations of the new building had only just been arrested. "The Ministry ol Works were within ten days for tenders foi the excavation," said Lord Morrison. MacArthur Tells An Old Friend GRIFFIN, GA. Gen. Douglas MacArthur. in a human and wryly humorous windup of a letter tc an old friend and classmate, wrote: "My best to you. Pat. as always, and. if you hear of my last roundup at tho end of a rope from an oriental telegraph pole, don't be surprised or shocked." The letter was written to Col. Charles Patterson, ret., who attended West Point with MacArthur and later became his Chief ol Staff. It was in reply to Patterson's congratulations to MacArthur on the General's 71st birthday, Jan. 26th. Published with Col. Patterson's permissior. in the Griffin. Oa. Daily News, the lettei stated: Thank you so much for your fine birthday letter, which has just reached me. It brought back so vividly the litclonu affection j that has united us. "The going in Korea is tough. We had about cleaned up the North Koreans when | suddenly China hurled her entire military might at our relatively small force. With the handicaps and delimitations imposed upon us. we have had a difficult time to maintain the integrity of our troops and some degree of stability in the general situation. Just what is in store I do not know but the confusion which exists in the political ramifications which have determined military actions have perhaps never been equalled in military history." —I.N.S.

Our fast bowlers have almost run their course and the ofTspinners Johnson and Iversou are certainly not attacking bowlers. I feel certain that the present Australian team would fare badly with the team which Hammond brought to Australia in 1946.

Such criticism in my opinioi. is not just. There were weaknesses In the English team, particularly in the tackling of the centrethrees. This was all the mure siiipriMng as Oakley had been %  first 'cop' in order that Ink ciaah-tackling could be pitted against the straight running ol Jack Matthews. But 11 was Just ON of those things that did work and although the covering might have been better I am inclined to believe that the chief English fault was lack of speed. Even allowing for the margin of defeat, there need not necessarily be a lot of changes in the rtexl English team for the game against Inland In Dublin on February 16th. It seems highly probable that hard-running John Smith of Cambridge University will be recalled on the wing and places will certainly have to be found in the pack for both Carpenter, the captaifli unable to piny against Wajes. gnd R It tson -Thomas who was called in to the pack a* a late substitute. But whatever other rhanges the selectors muke, they can Ian basil that their chosen XV ure unlikely to run up against quite such strong opposition again this :canon. This Welsh (earn is undoubtedly fowerful. Emphuslsing this point is the significant fact that Bleddyn Williams, vice-captain of the British Isles team recently returned from Australia and New Zealand, is unable to command a place in the ltd*. And yet WllUams if he iv qualified for England. I elancl or Scotland would be welcomed by any of those countries with open arms.

War May Cost
U.S. 1 Billion $

N YORK, Feb. 8.

The Second World War may cost
the United s clase on $1,000,
006,000,000 in pensions services and
privileges for ex+servicemen, it
was said here today.

The cost of war might continue
for more than 100 years and might
amount to “many times” the direct
cost of fighting.

The National Industrial Confer-
ence Board in an analysis of ex-
servicemen’s benefits granted un-
der hundreds of federal laws add-
ed that these had already cost the
country more than $6,000,000,000
per year since the war ended six
years ago.

Present expenditure on behalf of
American ex-servicemen reached
a total second only to the amount
allocated for national defence, it
said, —Reuter.

forcements were thrown on to the

The local fire brigade had to be
called out when three-year-old
Michael Topping staged a revolt
in his nursery.

Michael had refused to go to
bed and while his mother was
getting him a glass of milk he
locked the door of the nursery |
from the inside.

Peace overtures by both
parents failed, and. the fire
brigade was called to enter the
second-storey window.

Michael was found asleep on
the floor with his iron rations—
a box of chocolates—beside him.

Ask For Increased Grant

9, 1951

Committee

THE PUBLICITY COMMITTEE have asked Govern-

ment to increase their gran

t this year. Government have

pointed out that they would like to see increased contribu-
tions from merchants and others.

Honorary Secretary of the Committee Mr. A. C. Boyce

gave this information yeste

This view was algo expressed
by Hon. V. C. Gale M.L.C. ant
supported by Mr. Vernon Knight.

Mr. Knight expressed his ap-
preciation of the work that Mr.
Boyee was doing as honorary
secretary. Mr Boyce had given
ef his time to a job, he said,
which he thought the commercial
community of the island, the Gov-
ernment and the public im general,
should .be grateful to him for.

He would also like to associate

Life With The Atom Bomb

LAS VEGAS, Nev., Feb.

At 5:46 o'clock on Sunday
morning Jan. 28th Bob Alexan-
der’s wife shook him awake in
their bungalow on South Second
Street and said “you better get up.
I saw aq bright light, I think some-
one’s turning in the driveway.”

The Alexanders have a reputa-
tion for dispensing hospitality at
any hour in the twenty-four, and
so Mrs, Alexander made a dive for
the kitchen to get the coffee pot
started and Bob dashed into the
bathroom to scrape the Saturday
night whiskers from his face,

Mrs. Bob hoped to. have the
coffee under way and Bob at ‘east
one side of his face presentable
before the knock came at the door,
but the knock never came. The
door opened itself, the coffee pot
bounced across the stove and
Bob’s shaving mirror rocked like
crazy.

The fact of the matter was that
the Alexanders were experiencing
the backwash of the third and
largest- blast yet set off at -the
Atomic Energy Commission’s New

dred miles north of this desert

In a speech which lent a decided fillip to Lord

that it would be possible to modify the

were of an equal acuteness, He did not how-
ever assure the House that the Government
would consider the suggestions which had
been put forward in the course of the debate.
It also emerged in his summing-up that the
calling of tenders for the purpose of excava-

only just been arrested.

Race Conscious Servicemen

THE majority of ‘coloured ser-
vicemen, West Indians, Americans
and Africans, who served in Eng-
land, or Wales during ‘the last war
were extremely race conscious.
For this reason they gathered at
specific centres in many of the
large cities instead of mixing
freely among the English or Welsh
population,

This was not necessary in the
United Kingdom because an un-
equalled hospitality was extended
to foreign servicemen regardless
of colour or creed. By adopting
this attitude many of these ser-
vicemen were unable to visit his-
toric and beauty spots in the U.K.

When a coloured ‘serviceman
dropped in at Manchester the first

»place he would visit for accomms-

dation would be the King George's
Hostel. This hostel was in a dingy
building of about four storeys.
For the most of the time the place
is over crowded with coloured
servicemen. Although they are
many other hostels and a Y.M.C.A.
with a swimming pool, he would
still prefer the King George's
Hostel.

At Manchester and on the out-
skirts there are many large dance
halls but the coloured serviceman
would always choose the crowded
Plaza Ballroom at Oxford Street
when -he was going to a dance,

By RAF.

Year after year the Plaza Ballroom *

became more and more crowded
with servicemen. When it wus
not a quarrel between. the Afri-
eans and the West Indians it was
one between the Americans and
the Africans, Eventually the
Plaza was closed sometimes be-
tween 1945—46 and one of the
most outstanding Ladies’ Orches-
tras in England, which provided
the music, travelled to another
part of the country. ;

Ev.n to have a drink the ¢ol-~

oured serviceman with an in-
feriority complex had to see an-
other crowd of his race before he
could be comfortable. For a mug
of ale he would walk about a mile
out of the centre of Manchester
to the Crown Pub. In this pub
the atmosphere is always tense—
the rustle of a rat may cause a
fight,

Whenever a coloured service-
man alighted from a train at Liy-
erpool the first place he would ask
for is “Wilkie’s Club”. He would
roam all over the town until he
stumbled on to this Club then he
would feel at home. Wilkie is a
coloured man himself and_ his
doors were always opened to col-
oured servicemen,

~

In London it was the Westmin-
ster Y.M.C.A. for. sleeping accom-

--modation and = Paramount, Ball-

room at Tottehham Court’ Road
for dancing. «Paramount was:

sometimes called “Deserters Hote”

or “Harlem”, For a Military
deserter he only had to visit the
Patamount Ballroom in the heat
ofa Jazz Session.

fT was privilegéd to. witness a
squad of Canadian, American and
English Military Policemen enter
this ballroom in search of desert-
ers. It was somewhat like a spot
dance. As soon as they entered
they ordered the musie to stop and
the couples to remain where they
were.

It was sometimes easy to pick
out a deserter. Although there
would be no music he would try
to dance his partner aroung the’
floor in the direction of the near-
est exit. If he waS not caught in-
side he would run into the arms
of the Policemen outside.

“Fullado Club” at .Leicester
Street was also one of the London
haunts. It wasS more difficult to
enter this Club. You are surveyed

a in an effort





to get the hundyéds of coloured
people that flock@@ there’ to dis-
tribute themselves other

dance halls and mix with the

Londoners.

On the other hand English peo-
ple were only too glad to welcome
a coloured serviceman into their
homes to join them with their
afternoon tea or mid-day lunch,

Christmas 1946 saw residents of
Dartford, Kent, sending to the
local Y.M.C.A, enquiring if they
had any servicemen: booked in.
Regardless of colour or creed they
took in one serviceman each in
their hames to spend Christmas
Day. Those who cared to pay a
return visit on the Christmas
Bank-Holiday did so.

In many other villages and
small towns these incidents oc-
curred daily but still coloured
servicemen preferred to stick to
their specific centres in large
cities,

The letter was written to Col. Charles Pat-
terson, ret., who attended West Point with
MacArthur and later became his Chief of
Staff. It was in reply to Patterson’s congratu-
lations to MacArthur on the General’s 71st
birthday, Jan. 26th.

Published with Col. Patterson’s permission
in the Griffin, Ga. Daily News, the letter

stated:

“Thank: you so much for your fine birth-

day letter, which has just reached me. It

| brought back so vividly the lifelong affection
that has united us,

“The going in Korea is tough. We had
about cleaned up the North Koreans when
suddenly China hurled her entire military
might at our relatively small force.
the handicaps and delimitations imposed
upon us, we have had a difficult time to
maintain the integrity of our troops and some
degree of stability in the general situation.
Rees what is in store I do not know but the
confusion which exists in the political rami-
fications which have determined military

actions have perhaps never been equalled in
i military history.”

Few Houses In B’dos
Can Beat This For Age

THERE is an old wall and brick three-storey building
up Government Hill, “Windsor Lodge”, which children used
to call Solomon O’Grundy’s Lodge more than 150 years ago.
At present two greying ladies, the Misses Hutchinson who
fit in well with the antiquity of the house, live there,

These old ladies moved into “Windsor Lodge” 62 years
ago when their uncle who was then’of G.W. Hutchinson

& Co., bought the place.

At “Windsor Lodge” there is a
crisp piece of paper on which is |
written a copy of a newspaper
item of about 200 years ago when
the building was advertised for
sale. The ink is now faded.

At the time 15 acres of land was
attached to the house and. the
grounds were enclosed witha log- |
wood hedge. It hada big orchard
with 150 Jamaican palm trees and
many other fruit trees. Today the
palm trees are gone and many of
the acres sold, but there still re-
mains about 60 mahogany trees,
the trunk of one of which is about
14 feet in circumference.

Among the trees which are to
the front of the house and at the
side of the driveway, tall African
Bow Hemp bush grows, The Afri-
can Bow Hemp is beaten out, dried
and used for making baskets and
hats. It is a plant which is hard
to be rid of. Big lizards like to
run between this bow hemp.

More than 200 years ago the
people of “Windsor Lodge” used
to get water from the 40-foot
square tank that is a short distance
from the house. The tank is now
filled up and fruit’ trees grow
where the ripples of the water
once were. :

Near the tank is a small, solid
wall building where a queerly
constructed pump is still kept.

Funny Nooks

The house is a rambling sort of
house with funny nooks. Through
the ceiling of the third floor there
is a hole which leads to a dark
room on the top. It is called the
box room and nobody ever goes
up there now. When you look at
this hole you would wonder
whether the first p
house had to seek re
the days of robbers. ~

The building is on a rising and
from the third floor you can see
the sea off St. James coast, the
pleasant undulating land that is
St. Thomas’ hills, the green val-
leys of St. George and feel the
wind blowing cool on the hottest
day.

There is something about the
architectural design of this house
which makes it seem snug. There
is not the light touch of the mod-
ern houses and this top floor must
have been built to induce sleep
for the rooms up there are bed-
rooms and dressing rooms, with
every room a partial library. The
Misses Hutchinson have a good
stock of old books, quite in keep-
ing with this aged building.

Clock You Can Hide In

When electricity came to Bar-
bados, “Windsor Lodge” was one
of the. first houses to be equipped
with it. The other day workmen
were replacing the wire and the
old frayed one was dropping to
pieces in the workmen’s hands.

Some years ago when the Misses
Hutchinson were away from home,
part of the ceiling of a room fell
in.

there is a clock that a school boy

in the course of the next few

There is a sense of security in

Nowadays where the wine was

«

Certainly not ! Baby’s cry

© usually means pain — the pain of indigestion.
Cow's milk by itself you see, is apt to form a clot in
baby’s stomach. "Fhat’s why wise nurses and mothers add
Robinson’s ‘Patent’ Barley. This famous cereal enables
bottle-fed babies to digest their food as easily as mother’s
milk and prepares their digestive organs to deal with
more solid foods later on. Try Robinson’s ‘Patent’ Barley

Wins Ath

Test By 274 Runs

(From W. J.

O’REILLY)
ADELAIDE, Feb. 8,

The last day’s play in this characterless Adelaide Test,
has driven home a lesson to each of the two teams and to

those who chose them.

Devanshire,
Carlton Play
To 1—1 Draw

A TEAM from the H.M.S, Dev-
onshire and a Carlton side played
to a one all draw in their football
match at the Carlton grounds yes-
terday evening.

The game was fairly fast and
very interesting. On many occa-
sions the sailors failed to find their
men and passes went wide. Carl-
ton’ ¢ombined very well, but miss-
ed many opportunities in the goal
area,

The goal for Carlton was scored
by Kennie Hutchinson in the first
half, He beat the Navy goalie Lau-
charne with a well placed shot.
When the second half was only a
few seconds old the Navy scored
the equalizer, Their opponents only
touched the ball once before the
goal was scored, Callachan beat
the Carlton custodian, King, with
a niee shot in the left corner of
the nets after receiving a pass
from Alltimes,

The teams were as follows:

Marshall, Clairmonte, Cox; Hall,
R. St. C. Hutchinson, K. St, C.
Futchinson, N. S. Lucas (Capt.),
and F, St. C. Hutchinson.

H.M.S. Devonshire: Laucharne:
Jewell, Brimacombe, Plummer,
Nevitt, Francis, Campbell, Wil-
liams, Callachan, Allitimes, Evans,

Sgt. Turner was referee,

——

: King; Sisnett, Kennedy;

Firstly England’s batting.
throughout this season has shown
a pronounced lack of determina-
tion and _ responsibility in the
majority of the batsmen who have
played in the Test.

Apart from Hutton who has done
© grand job honestly, no English-
man has really pulled his weight
with the bat. In Adelaide to-day
England had a splendid chance to
draw the game.

It is useless to argue that the
hopeless position of the game was
not sufficient inspiration for a
dour fight. A drawn game here
would have softened the effect
that a recitation of the perform-
ances of Brown’s team on this tour
will have on young England.

But — apart from David Shep-
pard, who tried every inch of the
way, and seerned prepared to fight
his way through to close of play,
no other katsman récognised the
importance of making a last ditch
fight of it.

Simpson Threw Hand Away

Simpson, who does not lack
ability, threw his wicket away five
minutes before the lunch adjourn.
ment, It is an elementary rule
with batsmen that particular care
must be taken just prior to an. ad-
journment so that a new batsman
will not be geetihens by having
to make a start at that time.

It has been suggested that
Simpson threw his wicket away
intentionally because he was legi-
timately caught at short leg by
Lindwall off Johnston’s bowling,
and adjudged not out by the um-
pire. If the decision was wrong
there was no justification for sui-
cide in a Test match.

Evans played shots at a time

when shots did not matter q hang, ,

Bedser did likewise. And England
lost the match as usual. Until
England’s batsmen buckle down
to the job and play it as hard as
they can all the time, with never
flagging concentration, they will
always find it difficult to beat
Australia in a Test.

Attack Wilted
_ On the other hand, the Austra-
lian attack wilted so badly during
the day that our selectors must be
prepared to admit that their pol-
ley of disregarding legspin bow]-
ing is fundamentally foolish.

When Sheppard and Simpson
were batting confidently before
lunch, the attack was bankrupt
The mercurial Miller, by collect'ng
three quick wickets, finished cif
the game but did not hoodwink
those who realised that the Aus-
tralian bowling had been com-
Pay, exposed.

If Weekes and Worrell are as
good as Englishmen say they are,
our attack needs some bolstering
up before they arrive next season.

Our fast bowlers have almost
run their course and the offspin-
ners Johnson and Iverson are cer-
tainly not attacking bowlers.

I feel certain that the present
Australian team would fare badly
with the team which Hammond
brought to Australia in 1946.

Defeat Navy

In the Water Polo match yes-
terday afternoon at the Barbados
Aquatic Club Harrison College
swamped a Cadet team from the
H.M.S. Devonshire nine goals to
love.

Each member of the Harrison
College team with the exception
of R. Feldman scored. He was
just about to have a try at tha
Navy goal when the final whistle

went.

Billy Manning scored four
goals for Harrison College and
Frankie Manning, Jeoffrey Jordan,
Mickey Weatherhead, Eric John-
son and Allan Taylor scored one
each,

The referee was R. Fairall. In
the other match the Barbados
team defeated H.M.S. Bevonshire
three goals to one. For Barbados
Mickey Jordan scored two goals
and George MacLean one. Bar.
bados scored all three goals in
the first half. The Navy got their
lone goal late in the second half
when Cadet Coleman scored with
a well placed shot.

Chief feature of the game was
the excellent goal keeping of the
Navy custodian Bill Bland. Al-
though three goals were scored
on him he must have saved a
dozen other certainties. The Bar
bados players tried their best but
could not get past him with theiy
many tries, The referee was Mr,
Archie Clarke.

The teams were:—

He failed to catch the speedy

Agramonte \as bleeding from the
mouth and ieft eye, and hanging
on desperately as the bell ended
the tenth and last round.

Agramonte’s retreating tactics
kept him out of trouble for seven

BARBADOS, ADVOCATE



Wales For The

Triple

By PETER

Crown

DITTON
LONDON, January 26.

WHO would be bold enough to say that this will not
be another victorious year for Welsh Rugby. After the

overwhelming defeat of England at St. He

ens, Swansea—

the biggest since 1922 — the odds against Wales retaining
the Triple Crown, already small, shortened even further.
In the circumstances this was only to be expected.

The Welshmen gave the type of
display one usually associates only
with visiting Dominion teams.
The combination between the for-
wards and backs was the finest
seen in Britain for years and the
way in which the ball was flung
about was a joy to watch,

The English team have been
vigorously condemned for putting
up such a feeble resistance and
have been described as one of the
worse ever to wear the white jer-
sey. Such criticism in my opinion
is not just. There were weakness-
es in the English team, particular-
ly in the tackling of the centre-
threes. This was all the more
surprising as Oakley had been
given his first ‘cap’ in order that
his crash-tackling could be pitted
against the straight running of
Jack Matthews, But it was just
one of those things that did not
work and although the covering
might have been better I am in-
clined to believe that the chief
English fault was lack of speed,

Even allowing for the margin of
defeat, there need not necessarily
be a lot of changes in the next
English team for the game against
ireland in Dublin on February
10th. It seems highly probable
that hard-running John Smith of
Cambridge University will be re-
called on the wing and places
will certainly have to be found in
the pack for both Carpenter, the
captain, unable to play against
Wales, and Rittson-Thomas who
was called in to the pack as a
late substitute. But whatever other
changes the selectors make, they
ean take heart that their chosen
XV are unlikely to run up against
quite such strong opposition again
this season,

This Welsh team is undoubtedly
powerful. Emphasising this point
is the significant fact that Bleddyn
Williams, vice-captain of the Brit-
ish Isles team recently return-
ed from Australia and New Zea-
Jand, is unable to command a place
in the side. And yet Williams if he
were qualified for England, I:e-
land or Scotland would be wel-
comed by any of those countries
with open arms. It speaks volumes
also that Newport, the only team
in Great Britain with a 100%
record this season, have only two
players, three-quarter Ken Jones
and wing-forward R, T, Evans in
the Welsh XV,

Competition 1s strenuous with
such great individuals in the team
as Roy John, John Gwilliam,
Cliff Davies, Glyn Davies, Ken
Jones, Jack Matthews and Lewis

Welsh side. The three-quarters

the striking force. Each plays a
definite part in relation to the

constantly switching. That is
what makes this Welsh team such
a grand one and what leads me
to prophesy that they will stay on |
