U.S.A. Plan 4 More
Army Divisions

For Europe

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15
‘THE UNITED STATES plans to send four
additional Army divisions to Europe, Defence
Secretary Marshall disclosed today.
Marshall told a joint hearing of the Senate
Foreign and Armed Services Committees: “I have
obtained the express permission of the President

to discuss with you the specific strength of the}:

ground forces which the United States has planned
to maintain in Europe.’’

Colonials Will
Not Solve U.K.
Problem

(From Our Own Correspondent)
LONDON, Feb. 1.

It would be a mistake to thin!
any quick solution of the problem
of manpower for British force:
by a. rapid in
crease in Colonial forces. Secre
tary of War, Strachey gave this
answer during last night's im-
portant Defence debate in the
Commons, to several members of
the Opposition who wanted ‘o
know, in the Words of Mr. Gam-
mans, Member Hornsey, “Why .5
it that the Government steadily
refuse to consider raising a
Colonial army?”

Strachey gave as the “obvious”
reason why Colonial forces could
not be rapidly expanded that
equipment is very largely a limi!-
ing factor.

Saying that the question was
one of degree, he agreed that whav
were in effect non-British forces--
Gurkha forces, the Malay rexi-
ment the African forces-—ure
“very valuable.”

Would Serve in 2 Ways

Gammans led the attack con-
cerning the utilisation of Colonial
manpower. He said that Britain,
while unable to provide forges
regarded as adequate for ner
needs, yet reject almost without
any consideration “the great
reservoir” of loyal capable fight-
ing men in the Colonial Empire.”

What was behind that attitude?
Why was it that after five years
of being pressed continuously
from that side of the House, tie
Government. »would do nothing
about it?

A Colonial army could fulfil two
functions. It could provide
garrison troops. How many British
troops, Mr. Gammans continued,
were there scattered all over tic
world in places like Jamateey
Gibraltar, Cyprus, Aden doing
jobs which could equally well be
done by long serviee Colonial
troops, and which before the war
in many cases, were done by men
of the Indian army?

He believed it would be possible
te scrape up one additional dij
sion of British troops if we wito
drew men from far-distant garri-

Industry

Earns Most Dollars
Goddard Tells Government

DURING A DEBATE

in the House of Assembly on

Tuesday Mr. Fred Goddard called on the Barbados Gov-
ernment to put a Hotel Aid Act on the Statute Book.

Mr. Goddard (E) replying to
Mr. Adams said: I thank the
senior member for St. Joseph for
the very clear and concise state-
ment that no help can be expected
from the Government for hotel
keepers, I thank him very much,
but figures can be made to prove
anything. When he said that the
Blue Waters Hotel did not ask
the Government for any conces-
sion whatsoever, I should like to
say that as far as I know — I hap-
pened to be a Director of the
Company — a letter was written
to the Government of that day
asking what it was prepared to do,
that is to say, whether it was
going to fall into line or do some-
thing similar to what the Govern-
ment of Grenada had done, that
is, to send down a Hotel Aids Bill
to the Legislature and a_ reply
was received that they could ex-
pect no such concession. He is
also correct in saying that the
Blue Waters Hotel project failed
because of the refusal of the Gov-
ernment of that day to allow
them tomget thé necessary United
States’ dollars, so that they could
bring a contractor here who was
in Venezuela at the time and
whom, they thought was the only
fit person in the West Indies at
that time capable of building a
hotel of that size and luxury.
project failed on that; it failed o
the refusal to let them get 50,000
United States’ dollars, In the
meantime the steel was imported
from England and, as everybody
knows, was on the spot. It was
eventually sold — some to Vene-
zuela, some, to Trinidad, some to
the Government for use in the re-
construction of the Speightstown
Bridge which was washed’ away,
(Mr. Adams: Some to the Barba-
dos Workers’ Union) and some to
the Barbados Workers’ Union.
The estimate was somewhere in
the vicinity of one million dollars;
to-day it would cost two million
dollars to build that hotel and
that is where I come back to the
Government about asking for cer-
tain ¢oncessions in respect of new
hotels to be built.

Hotel Aids Act

The present hoceis that are
already in existence would con-
tinue to do business; we are per-
fectly satisfied about them. But
if you wish to attract local capital
or foreign capital to put up a new
hotel or put on extensions to the
existing hotels, the first thing that
is going to be suggested to you
is that there should be a Hotel Aids

Act on the Statute Book to
help. the hotel industry.
The hotel industry is a

gamble and unless help is forth-
coming in that direction, I can
see no fresh capital being invested
in the industry. The Canadian
investors have stated plainly that
they want tax exemptions and
that they are not going to come
under any other conditions, I am
interested in the hotel industry
because I represent the parish of
Christ Church in which the
majority of the hotels in the
island are situated. The Marine
Hotel is employing 143 persons
and they have 131 guests in resi-
denée at the present time, more
than one employee to each guest.
(A Voiee: What about wages?)
They pay good wages and their
employees get good tips too and
they cause a great deal of money
to be put into circulation in this
colony,

Lost $40,000 U.S.

I was at the Crane Hotel on
Sunday — I went there to see
what was happening, as far as the
tourists who visited the island
that day were concerned — and
one of the tourists said to me in
the course of a conversation: “You
all do not want tronpy: 8 Barba-
dos. If the town had nm opened
to-day, we would have left
$40,000 in American money
in Barbados.” I go back and say
that if we had to pay our own way
and not depend on somebody else
to give us dollars, we would do
everything in our power to en-
courage the tourist industry; it is
the best dollar-earning business
we have, I went to Venezuela
sometime ago. I was allowed by
the Controller of Supplies to take
900 United States dollars with me
and I did not bring back a penny.
I gave a cocktail party that cost
me $500 but what happened

afterwards? The tourists started
to follow. The Marine Hotel
Company issued a folder with

every hotel in it and paid for it
and that folder coupled with my
visit, brought the Venezuelans to
these shores and they were able
to know, before they left Vene-
zuela, how much they were likelv
to spend in this island, The Hon-
ourable member said that the
hotels contributed only a small
sum but he does not know the
amount which the hotels spend in
advertising the island. Apart from
their contribution to the Publicity
Committees they issue their own

lders which cost them a censid-



erable sum of money. Two months
after I returned from Venezuela
the Manager of the Marine Hotel
went to Puerto Rico on another
mission to get tourists to come
here,
Hotels Help People

Did the Government provide
any of that money? No, I re-
peat, Sir, that I am interested in
the hotels, personally as well as
financially, and I am interested in
the hotel industry for Christ
Church because the majority of
the hotels are in that parish. I
know that thousands of persons
are employed in the industry in
Christ Church, All of them may
not be parishioners of Christ
Church but they nevertheless,
find employment in the industry. I
thank the senior member for St.
Joseph for his definite statement
of the Government's refusal to aid
the hotels; they know where they
stand now. The hotels are help-
ing themselves and they are help-
ing the Government by providing
revenue. When a tourist comes
here and buys a bottle of whiskey
the Government collects its duty
on that bottle of whiskey. The
hotels are also assisting in the un-
‘employment problem, If there
were only two or three guests at
the Marine Hotel, there would not

@ be 143 persons employed; there

might be 10 or 20 employed. If
we had the Blue Waters Hotel in
existence, there would be about
400 persons employed and receiv-
ing good wages, I saw a waiter
receive a $5.00 tip from a tourist
and I am sure that he received
gbaiuhs $20.00 in tips that day.

‘here can be absolutely no argu~
ment against the tourist industry

CHIEF GUIDE'S
BIRTHDAY

LONDON.

The Girl Guides’ Assogiation is
to join in the Seout Radio Pro-
gramme ‘‘Jamboree” at 6.30 p.m.
in the Light Programme on Febru-
ary 22nd. It is a date significant
for both movements for it was the
birthday of Lord Baden-Powell,
the Founder of Scouting and
Guiding, It is also the birthday
of his wife,-the present World
Chief Guide as well as being the
Guides’ Thinking Day.

In order to cOmmemocxate the
day, the programme of February
15th was switched forward to the
22nd. Thinking Day is kept as
an international day by two and
a half million Girl Guides and
Girl Scouts throughout the world
and Guides of different nationali-
ties will be sending birthday
wishes to the Chief Guide, during
the programme.

For Scouts, Mr. D. Francis Mor-
gan will speak of the acclamation
of Lord Baden-Powell as Chief
Scout of All the World at the 1920
World Jamboree : and Mr. A. W.
Hurl! will talk on Baden-Powell’s
last speech at a Jamboree, in Hol-
land in 1937.

Asked whether this programme
was being relayed in the Overseas
Services of the B.B.C., a spokes-
man of the Corporation said to-
day that no arrangements for this
had been made but it was possible
they might be.

40 Years Abroad

Seventy-year-old Samuel Byer
returned to this colony a few days
ago for the first time in 40 years.
All this time he has been in the
United States.

He is on a short visit and has
as yet confined his visits to the
City area, He thinks it has im-
proved a great deal since last he
was here.

He told the Advocate yesterday
that he was born in Jacksons, St.
Michael, In 1907 he left for
Panama and made “good” there.
He returned after three years, just
in time to bury his father, He
went back to Panama soon after
and remained there another year.

New York was his next des-—
tination and in 1915 he married
there. His wife was of Spanish
descent. Two children came of
the marriage—a boy, named Sam-—
uel after him, and a girl, This
boy did war service in Okinawa,
He is now employed at the New
York General Post Office. The
girl is married. Mr. Clarke himself
is an employee at the Brooklyn
General Post Office.

be made public soon.

As Churchill developed his argu-
ment that Britain should have the
atom bomb, Prime Minister Attlee
jumped to his feet ang asked him
“not to mislead the country.” By
his own agreement, Attlee said,
there was an understanding that
the development of the atomic
bomb should take place on the
other side of the Atlantic, Chur-

Attiee replied:

“Certainly.”

Attlee interrupted again to say
That there had been successful
development of the atomic bomb.
Churchill was not producing any
evidence that given resources
existing in Britain any more could
have been done,

Churchill askeq if anybody
challenged his statement that Brit-
ain had not succeeded in making
the atomic bomb completely.

Emanuel Shinwell, Defence Min-
ister then snapped: “Are you con-

Mao Tse Tung
Missing?

HONG KONG, Feb. 15.

Observers of the China scene
began to express curiosity on
Thursday about the whereabouts
of Mao Tse Tung, Communist
Chinese leader. They noted he
had failed to appear at three im-
portant functions in the last few
days.

Reports in this strategie van-
tage point said last month that
Mao had gone or was going to
Moscow to confer with Stalin on
the Korean war and other Asiatic
developments .

The reports appeared to have
been the result of speculation at
the Chinese Nationalist capital
Taipei, and were not regarded
seriously here at that time.

Mao’s last known public ap-
pearance in Peiping was Janu-
ary 26 when he attended the
celebration of the Indian National

Day.

Land Acquisition

SOME months ago in the House of
Assembly, Mr, W. A. Crawford tabled a
question as to whether the Government
would introduce legislation to prohibit
future acquisition by companies or indivi-
duals of lands in excess of 500 acres. The
second portion of the question asked
whether the Government would appropri-
ate lands of absentee proprietors.

In the reply the Government stated that
there was no need to limit the amount of
holdings and the expropriation of lands
was not at present contemplated.

| In an island where there is crying need
for investment and the establishment of
other industries in order to increase em-
ployment and to raise the standard of liv-
ing, it is discordant to ask a Government
to prevent people from acquiring land over
500 acres. There might be instances where
new industries could be established if raw
material could be supplied for manufacture
and the type of legislation which Mr, Craw-
ford envisaged by the terms of his address
would prevent people from purchasing the
lands which they needed even if there was
a ready seller.

| In the reply the figures were given show-
ing that the proportion of land owned by
absentee proprietors amounted to 6,748
acres. When it is remembered that the
total acreage in Barbados is 106,470 and
that of this 65,000 acres are arable the pro-
portion does not seem high. It was because
of the difficulties experienced by the sugar
industry in past years that the amount of
land owned by absentee proprietors was
considerably reduced. They have now
fallen into the hands of Barbadians in
almost every instance whether they are in
lots of 500 acres or more. At present,
according to the Government reply, the
lands are well cultivated and afford em-
ployment for many workers.

Already there is a strong criticism against
the cutting up of land in Barbados. This
refers to smaller holdings than those men-
tioned by Mr. Crawford but it has been
admitted by those who are specialists in
jar d cultivation that the division of land in

jarbados in recent years has reduced the
overall productivity. The outstanding in-
stance is the low rate of production of peas-
lant lands as compared with that of the
plantations.

But if all these weak spots in the address
ean be excused on the ground of lack of
specialised knowledge, the latter part
which asks for expropriation of people’s
lands cannot be excused on the same
ground, It must be known to Mr. Crawford
that some of the plantations mentioned in
the list as being owned by absentee propri-
etors are really owned by Barbadians in
Panama. Hundreds of these people who
were not allowed to own properties in
Panama contributed their money to some
“society which began ‘years ago investing
in Barbados plantations; and to ask a Gov-
ernment to expropriate them because the
Barbadians who own them are resident
abroad is the antithesis of good govern-
ment.

i Mr, Crawford has been for some time tilt-
ing at the sugar industry. He has failed time
‘and again and now he has attempted by
means of the questions to invite the Gov-
ernment to come to his aid. That industry
today pays greater sums by way of wages
than ever before. The 200,000 in this island
are almost entirely dependent upon it for
their existence and anything which tends
to interfere with the progress of that in-
_dustry or savours of bringing any measure
of dissatisfaction among those who work in
it, is inimical to the interest of the island.

5

’’The Barbados sugar industry has seen
its dark days due to the keen competition
in the world market and the careless atti-
tude of the British Government. It would
be an error of the first magnitude if Barba-
dians now began to create their own diffi-

‘¢ulties for the one industry which has_

enabled us to maintain a stable economy.

or a martyr? That may sound like
an over-simplification, but it states
the case as Americans see it.

that it was a weak point, but

They say that having been attack-

conditions. His airplanes could not

could not bornb the junction points
nor supply depots. Never in history

direct intervention by the United
Nations in Korea but was over-
iruled, He wanted instead to
strengthen the Nationalist forces
in Formosa, re-arm the Japanese
and encourage the irregulars in
China.

3 Because the North Koreans
drove everything before them in
the first stages of the war the
Chinese held back, Then came the
brilliant American landing at
Inchon and the entire situation
was altered.

4 With the North Koreans in
full retreat, and as the United
Nations troops crossed the 38th
Parallel, MacArthur issued his
famous pronouncement that the
boys would be home for Christ~-
mas, (Incidentally, by “home” he
meant Japan.) He did this with a
double purpose—first to encourage
his “troops to make an all-out
offensive to end the war, and
secondly to convince the Chinese
that they were in no danger of
being attacked.

5 Russia cracked the whip and
the Chinese attacked, for it was so
written in the bond,

I have skeletonised the casé put
by MacArthur’s champions, but in
essence it gives the argument as
presented to me,

Frankly I see one puzzling
weakness in it, nor could my
American friends give a satisfac-
tory explanation,

If MacArthur realised the dan-
ger of Chinese intervention, then
why, as he approached the fron-
tier, did he fan out his troops in
a long thin vulnerable line instead
of maintaining defence in depth?

WOMEN

Anyone so ill-advised as to write
at all is bound, sooner or later, to
find himself faced with having to
write about women. This is easy,
because anything written about
women is of absorbing interest
to men; and because it interests
men, it automatically becomes of
intense interest to women, The
reason for this is that all women
want to know what there is about
women that captures the interest
of men,

The only subject of more
absorbing interest to both sexes
than women, is anything written
about a particular woman, And if
the particular woman written
about happens to be known person.
ally to the reader, it becomes of
even more acute interest. The rea-
son for this is, if the reader
happens to be a woman he likes
he is curious to know whether the
writer had enough discernment to
be aware of all her many attrac-
tions and virtues, or whether he
is only the sort of ignorant ass
who is utterly devoid of a sense
of appreciation.

On the other hand, if the reader
be a woman, and the woman
written about happens to be the
sort of dull, unattractive, but ex-
tremely worthy person whom she
likes, she wants to satisfy her
curiosity as to whether or not the
writer was. capable of realising
how much pure. gold can lie
hidden beneath a lack of glamour
and sex apps. If, however, the
woman wri
be one whom she (the Teader)
dislikes, she is equally eager te
lap up what the‘ writer ‘says in
order to discover whether he had
enough discrimination to ‘perceive
the many and obvious’ short-
comings which can lie ‘hidden
beneath a veneer of cleverly ap-
plied cosmetics, and the sort of
artificial allure which appeals to
the crass ignorance of men.

The result is that whatever one
writes about women is bound to
intrigue readers of either sex, no
matter whether it pleases or dis-
pleases them, The writer who
lacks. the courage to write the
truth about this acutely interest-
ing subject, obviously underrates
the fine sense of discrimination of
the feminine mind, Every woman
knows instinctively that a writer

His Critics
Tt must not be imagined that the
General has no critics in his native
country. i;

and their

As I explained yesterday, there .

is the natural revulsion of
nation enduring defeat for the first
time in its history. Then there
are the blinded and maimed men
coming home with cruel memories
of unbearable cold, and a war
which they do not understand. And
finally, there is the fierce resent-
ment against the failure of the
other United Nations to send their
share of fighting men.

Such bitterness must find ex-
pression, and inevitably much of
it is directed against General
MacArthur. He is described as a
megalomaniac suffering from an
advanced stage of folie de gran-
deur.

Another taunt is that he spends
most of his time being public
relations counsel to MacArthur
the Great. The New York satirists
say that hé intends to crown him-
self Emperor of Japan, The cynics
say it is worse than that—he plans
to become President of the U.S.A.,
even as the defeated Hindenburg
became President of the German
Republic after the 1914-18 war.

It must be ramembered, how-
éver, that such voices are scatter-
ed and have not the cohesion of
those who support the General.

If it is proveq that MacArthur
was the victim of the politicians
who forced him into a campaign
of which he disapproved and then
prevented him from waging full
war against China when she
attacked the UN forces, the tone
will change swiftly. cArthur

about a woman is obviously not
writing about a woman like her-
self. And if what he says coin-
cides with what shehas long sus-
pecteq in the woman written about
she is delighted to have been given
an opportunity of having her
suspicions confirmed.

There is far, far more danger
in writing fulsomely flattering
things about an imaginary woman;
for the moment he does this, every
woman he knows, who could not
possibly fit his description, at once
suspects him of having | been
caught in the toils of some design-
Ing and unscrupulous jade, and
shaving no difficulty in recognising
in her someone they dislike they
begin to wonder what in the name
of heaven any man could see in her
to admire.

Although more has been written
about women than any other sub-
ject under the sun, it always seems
possible to find something more
to say about them, The reason for
this is because despite all that has
been written, not even women,
know very much about themselves,
The reason why they don’t is be-
cause no woman can know what
she herself will do under any given
set of circumstances, And the
reason for this is because no
woman can be relied upon to do
exactly the same thing in the same
way under the same circumstances
at different times. The reason for
that is because she is a woman.

This seeming inconsequence,
which | dull-witted males often
quote as a feminine failing, is, in
fact, one of women’s.most attrac-
tive charms, Without it much of
the interést which men feel for
what any of them might do next
would be lost. After all, if women’s
actions could be predicteq before-
hand with the exactness of a
mathematical problem, life would
be very dull. Who could possibly
want to go on indefinitely adding
two and two together to find out
an answer which they already
know?

THE men and women who look after
Britain’s sick animals are angry about being
called “vets.” They want the full title of “vet-
erinary surgeon” when ever they are talked
about by their clients oy mentioned in print.

Officials of the “vets” union,” the National
Veterinary Medical Association, say “the
word ‘vet’ is too vulgar to be applied to a
learned profession, and lowers our prestige.”

Some “vets” are objecting so strongly that
whenever firms use the word “vet” in their
advertisements they write complaining about
it. /

Dog-food manufacturers recently claimed
in an advertisement that their product is re-
commended by “leading ‘vets,’”. They were
immediately asked to change it to “leading
veterinary surgeons.”

All this is just pompous humbug in my
view. The word “vet” is not an unduly
familiar term, like “doc” for doctor, or “surge”
for surgeon. It is in general use because it is
more convenient than the full title, which is
hard to pronounce properly. ;

For pompous members of the veterinary
profession, I recommend the realistie ap-
proach of an old Scottish “vet” who had built

ties of Great Britain as the centre

But even if our cousins did

apparent lack of resentment on
our part against the Chinese.

Therefore when the Korean

%A DOMESTIC mystery which has puzzled
housewives for centuries—why even the best
potatoes sometimes turn black when they
are boiled—has been cleared up by Cam-

blackening is due to traces of iron.

Some potatoes grown in iron-rich soil, con-
tain so much of the metal that they are bound
to blacken Dr. Eric Bate-Smith told me yes-

But potatoes with moderate iron-content
only blacken if they are cooked in an iron
pot.

The scientists are hoping to find a way of
growing potatoes so free from iron that they
will never blacken. Meanwhile, their tip to
housewives is: cook your potatoes in an

Another Bridge
Washed Away

_ @ From page 1.

Cyclists and pedestrians, going
home after work during the eve-
ning, made use of every available
method to save their heads and
badies from getting wet. Those
who did not have raincoats and
umbrellas used carg boxes, grease
paper and old newspapers while
some had paper bags pulled wel!
down over their heads,

One man, who was riding along
Clapham Road, met with an acci-
dent, The tail of his raincoat
caught into his cycle and he was
thrown into fhe gutter.

Many country telephone lines
were still out of order, but Mr.
T. G. McKinstry, Secretary of the
Telephone Company, said that
there was no major trouble but
many miscellaneous faults

Because of the darkness of the
evening many motorists had to use
their parking lights while driving
through the City.

Residents of Speightstown were
not hard hit. Although, as in other
places, the rain fell continuously,
no streets were flooded. The Police
told the Advocate at 3.00 p.m.

‘that they were not informed of
any damages to homes or property.

As is always the case whenever
there is a heavy rainfall, the
Bowling Alley became a water
course, swelling the Salt Pond
which overflowed its banks The
water however ran into the sea
aback of the fish market.

Attendances at schools and
churches were poor. Some parents
kept their children at home for the
entire day while others allowed
them the first half of the day at
school.

In the Station Hill District over
three inches were recorded. Many
residents living in hilly districts
in tenantry areas encountered
difficulty when trying to get to
the main roads. They had to use
mud tracks.

The canal along Halls and Con-
stitution Roads was nearly filled.
In its rush for an outlet it brought
down many small trees, bunches
of canes and weeds.

The water from Bonnetts rushed
across Brittons Hill and down
Dalkeith. It branched off on both
sides of the road opposite Abing-
don. Many pedestrians who made
an attempt to cross were forced
to turn back and had to use Cullo-
den Road and Bishop’s Court Hill,

Throughout the rain the smoke
could be seen coming from the
chimney at Bulkeley Factory, In
the surrounding cane fields lab-
ourers braved the weather and
loaded trucks and carts with canes
which supplied this factory.

Etigecumbe was also working
but the gully behind it was flood-
ed. The road along Chfton Hill
and the gully at Chapel were also
flooded. Fields of yams and pota-
toes were covered with water. At
Moncrieffe the water covered
banana trees while at Dodds it
overflowed a field of burnt canes.

In the Carrington’s Village dis-
trict, the scene for the most part
was that of pools of water around
the majority of houses. In some
eases residents had to wade knee-
deep through the water in order
to get from their homes into the
road.

At eight o’clock last night the
rain was still falling steadily in
St. John while it had ceased for
a short period in Christ Church
and St. Michael. By midenight the
sky over the City had q clear look.

Some of the returns up to 6;
o’clock yesterday evening were as
follows: City one inch, 86 parts;
St. Philip two inches 45 parts; St.
Peter one inch, 18 parts; St.
George one inch and St, Lucy one
inch, 73 parts.

‘Gascogne’ Will Call
At Four More Ports

Four West Indian ports have
been added to the itinerary of the
French liner Gascogne this trip.

They are Grenada and British
Guiana when she is southbound
and St. Lucia and Antigua when
she is returning home.

The Gascogne is due to call at
Barbados on Saturday at 6 a.m.
for passengers. She is coming
from British Guiana via Trinidad
and Grenada.

She is expected to leave port for
Plymouth at 10 a.m, the same day
and will be making calls at St,
Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe and
Antigua,

This itinerary has been planned
for the Gaseogne on all her future
calls.

The other French liner, SS.
Colombie, will be running her
usual route.

Messrs. R. M. Jones & Co., Ltd.,
are the agents.

- ACCIDENT CASE
ADJOURNED

A case brought by Cecil Howell
of St. Peter, claiming damages to
the amount of £50 against Jamies
A. Rose of Pavilion Road, Bank
Hall, for damaging his motor
car E—102 on April 10 was yes-
terday adjourned until March 15)
when it came before Judge J. W. B.
Chenery in the Court of Original
Jurisdiction.

Counsel in the case are Mr.
W. W. Reece for Rose and Mr.
J S. B. Dear for Howell. The
was_ brought









case for damages
after the motor car E—102 was in-
volved in an accident with the
motor lorry M—809 near Hole-
town on April 10.

It was alleged in the evidence
that Rose had promised to pay the
damages of the car, trying to
prevent the matter from going to
the court. Mr. Reece in his cross
examination of the witnesses es-
tablished that the car hit the lorry
instead of the lorry hitting the car,

SENIOR GUARDIAN



Mr. R. L. Ward of the St
Luey Vesiry has been elected

Mr. H



Mr. Ramprashad,
timber and fire coal merchant.
told the “Advocate” yesterday
that British Guiana could supyly
Barbados and some of the other
West Indian islands with some of
their soft woods such as crab
wood, determa and Silver-baili
for the same purpose as the fir
beards which come from Canada.

He said that the wood was not
only strong, but it was cheaner
than that obtained from Canada
and would therefore enable the
colony to keep its currency within
the sterling area and thus save
dollars. :

He used to do a good business
here in the export trade about 18
years ago, shipping kakaralli
timbers to R. and G. Chailenor
and Marshall and Webster. At
the present, he was concentrating
on firewood in British Guiana, bu:
was hoping to resume his expor(
trade with his old friends in the
near future.

In British Guiana, the firewood
and charcoal position was very
good, hence imports from the
colony to Barbados and other
places could be increased.

a wood,

Cheaper Food

He observed that the food sit-
vation here was much cheaper
tuan in Trinidad as meat, chicken
and beef could be obtained more
freely and were even cheaper
than in British Guiana.

Mr. Persaud said that as a rice
producer, he did not think that
Barbados was receiving the best
quality rice from British Guiana.
He believed that the price of the
article was the deciding factor as
compared with the werld markct
prices,

He said that he was however
pleased with the road conditions
here as they were very much
better than those in British Gui-
ana, especially those from the
airport to Georgetown and those
in the country districts.

He hoped that if federation with
the West Indies should come
about, British Guiana might be
able to procure white mar! stone
from Barbados for road building
ia quantity and at cheap prices 11
order that their roads could alse
be well built.

Mr. Persaud who is a ericket
enthusiast is looking forward to
some good cricket between Triti-
dad and Barbados and hopes when
he returns home, he would be able
to impart some of ‘the experience
he has gained to the members of
the Spartan Sports Club of which
he is the Captain.

Milder Rum

Mr. Walte: Guijadeen said that
as a cinema preprietor, he was
impressed by the cinemas he had
seen here and thought that they
compared favourably with those
at home as far as sound anda
seating accommodation were con-
cerned.

He is also a liquor dealer and
bakery proprietor and thought that
the rum here was milder in taste
than that at home and as a blend-
er, he preferred it much more
than the B.G. rum,

As far as the bread was cgn-
cerned, he said that it was better
then that of British Guiana and

Trinidad, especially the butter
bread.
Like Mr. Persaud he was a

cricket enthusiast and captain cf
the Vergenoegen Cricket Club and
weather permitting, he was hop-
ing to see some good cricket here.



“Golfito” Due To-morrow

The Elders and Fyffes’ Golfito
is expected to call at Barbados on
Saturday at 9.30 a.m. from Eng-
land,

The Golfito will be leaving Bar-

bados for Trinidad at 6 p.m. the

same day. Her agents are
Messrs. Wilkinson & Haynes, Co.,

Humour At | ST. JOHN GETS

An Auction

There was a good deal of fun a

an auction sale held at the Depart-
ment of Highways. and Transport
yesterday. What with the rain
and the quality of the articles
the sale could have been a dull

one, but the humour of the buyers
and the “salesability”’ of Mr. Darcy
Scott, Government Auctioneer
made it seem that old tar brooms



minus the handles were not so
hard to sell after all,

The first article sold was ex-
panded metal, quit bit of- it
metal that had seen.many better
days. It went at a small price
Then there was a winch

The
auctioneer offered it optimistically;
sellers heard the offer with ca
tic remarks, and soon’ the pli

took on the atmosphere of
oriental market, except that ac-
cording to the travel. books, the

eastern vendor lowers his price
gradually with much sighing and
raising of the hands to Allah
while yesterday it was the seller
who was egging the price 6n and
up.

An offer of one dollar for ‘the
winch he termed “riGicuious’
and a little later the price reached
five dollars, the intending purchas-

er declaring solemnly. that. he
would pay ho more; but he
eventually paid three dollars
more.

Then a set of tar brooms or
rather the bottoms, went for

small price, so did a set of steel



brooms and a set of scavenging
breoms in the same condition, O!
the buyer some one said, “he has
firewood to last until Christmas,”

And so the story went, Old
shovels were disposed of, and old
agricultural forks. Pincers, span-

ners and files went too, all in good
humour, while outside the rain
poured and leaked in spots through
the roof of the shed where the
sale was carried on.

FINED £2

A fine of £2 to be paid in 14
days or in default one month’s
imprisonment with hard labour
was imposed on Clarence Flem-
ming of Roebuck Street, St
Michael yesterday by His Worship
Mr A. J. H. Hanschell, Senior
Police Magistrate of District “A.’

Flemming was found guilty of a
breach in the Shop Closing Act
and the case which was prosecuted

by Sgt. R. Murrell was brought

A fourth Boys’ Club was open-
ed at Cliff Cottage, St. John; et
5 o'clock yesterday evening, The
few who braved the weather to
witness the opening saw Mr, John

Beckles, M.B.E., perform the
ceremony.

Colonel R, T, Michelin, Com-
missioner of Police, who intro-
duced Mr. Beckles; said that the

Club deserved to succeed, It was
the fourth Boys’ Club in the is-
land. There is an extra-mural
Club at District “A” where the
boys do gardening, physical
training and play games,

He said that they were fortu-
nate in getting the building at
Cliff Cottage. At present 29 boys
had registered..to become mem-
bets but they hoped to increase
this to 50,

Giving a word to the boys, the
Commissioner said that. the-Club
was. opened for their benefit but
apart from. playing games they
would have to learn a trade which
would | becomé’' an everlasting
benefit to them. At the other clubs,
the boys are being taught trades
and they hoped to start classes
in carpentry, tailoring, shoemak-
ing and maybe divawing at that
new club very soon, To become
' eligible for the club they will all
; have to take part in one of these
} trades,
|. He said, “We want to teach you
1 to use your hands so that you
jean have something to carry you



| Sirough in later years.” He said
that anything entirely free was
not much good. -There is a sub-
seription of six cents a month
Which they must pay.

In the country districts there
was very little for the boys to
do to improve their ability or
amuse themselves. .The Boys’

Club was erected for the purpose
of keeping them out of rum shop
verandahs and bad compiny, At
}the club quarters they ‘can play
together and learn together.
He said that Mr. Henriques,

a

pioneer of Boys’ Clubs in BEng-
land, was visiting the island next
month, He will ask Mr. Hen-
riques to visit Cliff Cottage and

have a talk with the boys.

They might wonder why the
Police are taking such an active
part in forming these Boys’ Clubs

It is because in their way of think-
ing it is much better. to devote
time to training . youngsters ‘in

their early days than waiting until
they have grown up and perhaps
taken to crime,

A committee of people iiving in
the area will be responsible for
running the Club. The Police

will be in charge for two years.
By then the Club should be on a
sound footing and able to handle
its own affairs.

He asked them to keep the Club
smart and clean and think of it
as a home away from home.

Mr. John Beckles said that he
was also a social worker like
Colonel Michelin.

It was the first time in the his-
tory of the island that Boys’ Clubs
have been opened. He said that
Colonel Michelin, as a visitor to
jarbados, has done more than
Barbadians.

“The boys of to-day will be
men of to-morrow. Learn to
shoulder your burden,” he said.
He wished them success.

Mr. O, T. Allder, M.C.P., one

a

of *the representatives of the
parish, said that he was inter
ested in the Boys’ Clubs ever,

since the opening o
Bay Street?

The hallmavk of advancing
youth is discipline. He asked the
boys to use the Club as a source
whereby they could discipline
themselves. They must try to go
upwards and they needed insti-
tutions such as these to {guide
them. If they allow an opportu-
nity like this to pass them by they
must blame themselves.

He said, “Colonel Michelin has
lit a torch which I hope others
will follow. This is a good ven-
ture and I wish you God speed.”

Among those present were—
Capt. W. A. Farmer, Major
R. A. Stoute, Capt. F. Parris,

Mrs. Parris, Inspector Chandler,
Miss Hall and Sgt. B. Gaskin.

DOCTORS AND DENTISTS
R, R. W. SORENSEN, (Ley-
ton, Lab.) asked the Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies
approximately how many foreign-
ers ‘Or persons” whose qual-
ifications were secured = in
foreign countries have obtained
British registration for medical or
dental service in the Colonies.
R. J. GRIFFITHS: On the
assumption that my hon.
Friend refers to doctors and den-
tists with foreign qualifications in
colonial Government employment
who are registered in the United
Kingdom, the answer is 37 doctors
and two dentists. There are also
a few doctors in the employment
of colonial Governments who are

not registered in the United
Kingdom,

R. SORENSEN: As there are

a number of doctors with

foreign qualifications who

could
well be used

in .colonial areas,
what steps are being taken to
enable these doctors, especially
those living in this country, to
secure British registration?
R. GRIFFITHS: I should be
glad if my hon. Friend
would put that Question down, It

is very important and I should

prefer to see it on the Order Paper

before I reply. ;
DOMINICA

(Geneva Estate)
R-) H. HYND (Accrington
Lab.) asked the Secretary
of State for the Colonies why the
Government of Dominica aban-
doned its project of buying 600
acres of the Geneva estate, result-
ing in this acreage being bought
privately and 368 tenants being
given notice to leave; and whether
he will advise the Government
that this 600 acres should be
bought in the interests of the ten-

ants.
M®*: J. GRIFFITHS : After this
estate had been sold priv-
ately, and notice to leave had been
given to some 211 tenants, the
Government of Dominica then
proposed to purchases 600 acres
compulsorily, but the project had
to be abandoned because ex-ten-
ants, whom the Government pro-
posed to resettle on the land, de-
clined to enter into tenancy
agreements with the Government
providing for reasonable rents and
safeguards for good husbandry.
The new owner has offered the
ex-tenants contracts which about
60 have accepted. Many ex-ten-
ants have land elsewhere, The
answer to the last part of the
Question is in the negative,
R. HYND: Is not my right
hon, Friend aware that the
tenant are nervous in case they
are enslaved to the new owners of
the property? Would it not be
better that they should become
the tenants of the Government?
R. GRIFFITHS: This great
body of tenants diq not
accept the offér of the Govern-
ment, and, since, they refused it,
the Government are seeing that
the new conditions are as good as

they can be made,

Thin adhesive tape, not more
than an inch wide, is all that
is permitted.

The idea is to protect the deli-

back of a boxer’s hands—the most
vulnerable section of a fighter’s
“weapons”.

The Colonial army could raise
a field force. He did not mean
for service in Europe, but for
service in the Far East and Near
East.

“Look at the magnificent war
record of West African and East
Atrican troops in Burma during
the war’ Gammans added.

“Would not men of that sort be
equally useful to fight the war
in Malaya?

Gammans anticipated the Secre—
tary for War’s answer on the
equipment question by saying: “If
we were to raise long service
troops from the Colonial Empire,
we could get them into formations,
trained and disciplined, and supply
them afterwards.”

There was a great reservoir of
officers from the Indian army, who
would willingly take service in the
Colonial army.

Secretary of the Telephone Company, said that there was no major trouble but luitiy miscellaneous fault* Because of the darkness of the evening many motorists had to use their parking lights while driving through the City. Residents of Spelghlslown were not hard hit. Although, us in other tlM rain fell continuously, no streets were flooded. The Police told the AdvaraW at 3.00 p.m. thai they were not informed of nny damages to home* or property As Is always, the case whenever there Is a heavy rainfall, the Bowling Alley became a water course, swelling the Salt Pond which overflowed 1U banks The water however ran into the sea aback of the fish market Attendances at schools and were poor. Some parent? kcVt their children at home for the entire day while others allowed them the first half of the day at school. In UM Station "ill District over throe inches were recorded. Many residents livtrg in hilly districts in iti.iiitry areas encountered difficulty when trying to get to the main roads. They had to use mud tracks The canal along Halls and Constitution Roads was nearly fllled. In its rush for an outlet it brought down many small trees. btUKBH of canes and weeds. TinA.IUT from BuDJWUi rushed across Brittnns Hill ami down Dalketth. It branched oil on Imth If n On road opposite Ablngdon. Many pedestrians who made an attempt to crost were forced to turn back and had to use Culloden Road and Bishop's Court Hill.

At eight o'clock last night the rain was still falling steadily in St, John while It had ceased for a short period in Christ Church and St. Mlih.nl B) mld-nighl the Sky over the City had a clear look.

They are Grenada and British Guiana when she is southbound and St. Lucia and Antigua when she Is returning home. The Gascocne is due to call at Barbados on Saturday at 6 a.m. for passengers. She is coming from British Guiana via Trinidad and Grenada. She is expected to leave port for Plvmuuth at 10 a.m. the same day and will bo making calls at St, Lucia. Martinique, Guadeloupe and Antigua. This itinerary has been planned for the Gasooane on all her futurcalls. The other French liner, S.S. Colomble, will be running her usual route. Messrs. R M. Jones A Co.. Ltd.. ate the agents. told the "Asivaeate" lanasilaj fiat British Guiana could ^i,".'.Barbados and some of the other llan islands with some of their soft woods such as CTLO wood, determa and Sihv b...'.i lor the same purpose as the fir boards which come from Canada. He said that the wood was DM only strong, but it was chear*r •.tan that obtained from Canada and would therefore enable '.In eolcny to keep its currency within l!ie sterling area and thus save dollars. He used to do a good buineshere in the export trade about 18 years ago, shipping kakaralll timbers to R. and G. Chailerc: and Marshall and Webster. /.: the present, he was concentratii'K on firewood m British Guiana, bui vas hoping to resume his expor. trade with his old friends m the near future. In British Guiana, the firewood nnd charcoal position was very kood. hence Imports from ft* ilony to Barbados and other places could be Increased. Cheaper Food He observed that the food sitration here was much cheaper n in Trinidad as meat. chickoi< nnd beef could be obtained more freely and were even cheaper than in British Guiana. Mr. Persaud said that as a rice producer, he did not think U)Bl Barbados was receiving the best Quality rice from British Guiana He believed that the price of th. rticle was the deciding factor M compared with the w'-rld market prices. He said that he was hcwevci pleased with the road conditions here as they were very mu-h better than those in British Guiana, especially those from the irport to Georgetown and those n the country districts. He hoped that if federation will the West Indies should eOBaf about. British Guiana mignl bo rble to procure white marl %  tonP from Barbados for road bulldi:i quantity and at cheap punun order that their roads could alflO be well built. Mr Persaud who is B evitke*. i Is looking forward I IC good cricket between Trinidad and Barbados and hope; arabo he returns home, he would be able to impart some of the exaerieacr he has gained to the members of the Spartan Sports Club of which he is the Captain. Milder Rum Mr. Waltei GulJadeen said that ;.s a cinema pr prietor. he wai impressed by Ota cinanu Mtn ban and choughi that they compared favourably with those at home as far as sound and seating accommodation were concerned. He is also a liquor dealer and bakery proprietor and thought thi>" the rum here was milder In tatle than that at home and as a blender, he preferred It much more liar, the B.G. rum. As far as the bread was con i crned. he said that it was bctu r Ihan that of British Guiana a;' Trinidad. especially the butler braad, lake Mr. Persaud he was crlohtt enthusiast and captain the Vergenoegen Cricket Club and weather permitting, he was hoping to see some good cricket hen Gotfito" Due To-morrow The Elders and Fyffes' Golnta is expected to call at Barbados on Saturday at 9.30 am from England.

Colonials Will
Not Solve U.K.
Problem

(From Our Own Correspondent)
LONDON, Feb. 1.

It would be a mistake to thin!
any quick solution of the problem
of manpower for British force:
by a. rapid in
crease in Colonial forces. Secre
tary of War, Strachey gave this
answer during last night's im-
portant Defence debate in the
Commons, to several members of
the Opposition who wanted ‘o
know, in the Words of Mr. Gam-
mans, Member Hornsey, “Why .5
it that the Government steadily
refuse to consider raising a
Colonial army?”

Strachey gave as the “obvious”

Industry

Earns Most Dollars
Goddard Tells Government

DURING A DEBATE

in the House of Assembly on

Tuesday Mr. Fred Goddard called on the Barbados Gov-
ernment to put a Hotel Aid Act on the Statute Book.

Mr. Goddard (E) replying to
Mr. Adams said: I thank the
senior member for St. Joseph for
the very clear and concise state-
ment that no help can be expected
from the Government for hotel
keepers, I thank him very much,
but figures can be made to prove
anything. When he said that the
Blue Waters Hotel did not ask
the Government for any conces-
sion whatsoever, I should like to
say that as far as I know — I hap-
pened to be a Director of the
Company — a letter was written
to the Government of that day
asking what it was prepared to do,
that is to say, whether it was
going to fall into line or do some-
thing similar to what the Govern-
ment of Grenada had done, that
is, to send down a Hotel Aids Bill
to the Legislature and a_ reply
was received that they could ex-
pect no such concession. He is
also correct in saying that the
Blue Waters Hotel project failed
because of the refusal of the Gov-
ernment of that day to allow
them tomget thé necessary United
States’ dollars, so that they could
bring a contractor here who was
in Venezuela at the time and
whom, they thought was the only
fit person in the West Indies at
that time capable of building a
hotel of that size and luxury.
project failed on that; it failed o
the refusal to let them get 50,000
United States’ dollars, In the
meantime the steel was imported
from England and, as everybody
knows, was on the spot. It was
eventually sold — some to Vene-
zuela, some, to Trinidad, some to
the Government for use in the re-
construction of the Speightstown
Bridge which was washed’ away,
(Mr. Adams: Some to the Barba-
dos Workers’ Union) and some to
the Barbados Workers’ Union.
The estimate was somewhere in
the vicinity of one million dollars;
to-day it would cost two million
dollars to build that hotel and
that is where I come back to the
Government about asking for cer-
tain ¢oncessions in respect of new
hotels to be built.

Hotel Aids Act

The present hoceis that are
already in existence would con-
tinue to do business; we are per-
fectly satisfied about them. But
if you wish to attract local capital
or foreign capital to put up a new
hotel or put on extensions to the
existing hotels, the first thing that
is going to be suggested to you
is that there should be a Hotel Aids

Act on the Statute Book to
help. the hotel industry.
The hotel industry is a

gamble and unless help is forth-
coming in that direction, I can
see no fresh capital being invested
in the industry. The Canadian
investors have stated plainly that
they want tax exemptions and
that they are not going to come
under any other conditions, I am
interested in the hotel industry
because I represent the parish of
Christ Church in which the
majority of the hotels in the
island are situated. The Marine
Hotel is employing 143 persons
and they have 131 guests in resi-
denée at the present time, more
than one employee to each guest.
(A Voiee: What about wages?)
They pay good wages and their
employees get good tips too and
they cause a great deal of money
to be put into circulation in this
colony,

Lost $40,000 U.S.

I was at the Crane Hotel on
Sunday — I went there to see
what was happening, as far as the
tourists who visited the island
that day were concerned — and
one of the tourists said to me in
the course of a conversation: “You
all do not want tronpy: 8 Barba-
dos. If the town had nm opened
to-day, we would have left
$40,000 in American money
in Barbados.” I go back and say
that if we had to pay our own way
and not depend on somebody else
to give us dollars, we would do
everything in our power to en-
courage the tourist industry; it is
the best dollar-earning business
we have, I went to Venezuela
sometime ago. I was allowed by
the Controller of Supplies to take
900 United States dollars with me
and I did not bring back a penny.
I gave a cocktail party that cost
me $500 but what happened

afterwards? The tourists started
to follow. The Marine Hotel
Company issued a folder with

every hotel in it and paid for it
and that folder coupled with my
visit, brought the Venezuelans to
these shores and they were able
to know, before they left Vene-
zuela, how much they were likelv
to spend in this island, The Hon-
ourable member said that the
hotels contributed only a small
sum but he does not know the
amount which the hotels spend in
advertising the island. Apart from
their contribution to the Publicity
Committees they issue their own

lders which cost them a censid-



erable sum of money. Two months
after I returned from Venezuela
the Manager of the Marine Hotel
went to Puerto Rico on another
mission to get tourists to come
here,
Hotels Help People

Did the Government provide
any of that money? No, I re-
peat, Sir, that I am interested in
the hotels, personally as well as
financially, and I am interested in
the hotel industry for Christ
Church because the majority of
the hotels are in that parish. I
know that thousands of persons
are employed in the industry in
Christ Church, All of them may
not be parishioners of Christ
Church but they nevertheless,
find employment in the industry. I
thank the senior member for St.
Joseph for his definite statement
of the Government's refusal to aid
the hotels; they know where they
stand now. The hotels are help-
ing themselves and they are help-
ing the Government by providing
revenue. When a tourist comes
here and buys a bottle of whiskey
the Government collects its duty
on that bottle of whiskey. The
hotels are also assisting in the un-
‘employment problem, If there
were only two or three guests at
the Marine Hotel, there would not

@ be 143 persons employed; there

might be 10 or 20 employed. If
we had the Blue Waters Hotel in
existence, there would be about
400 persons employed and receiv-
ing good wages, I saw a waiter
receive a $5.00 tip from a tourist
and I am sure that he received
gbaiuhs $20.00 in tips that day.

‘here can be absolutely no argu~
ment against the tourist industry
and as long as I represent the
parish of Christ Church, I am
going to fight for it. The present
hotels, I repeat, are capable of
fighting for themselves. I have
no more money to put in the ex-
tension of those hotels and as re-
gards the building of new hotels,
do not lose sight of the fact that
the people who are going to be
employed stand to benefit to a
considerable extent, Apart from
the tourist industry, you cannot
go far to help the people.

CHIEF GUIDE'S
BIRTHDAY

LONDON.

The Girl Guides’ Assogiation is
to join in the Seout Radio Pro-
gramme ‘‘Jamboree” at 6.30 p.m.
in the Light Programme on Febru-
ary 22nd. It is a date significant
for both movements for it was the
birthday of Lord Baden-Powell,
the Founder of Scouting and
Guiding, It is also the birthday
of his wife,-the present World
Chief Guide as well as being the
Guides’ Thinking Day.

In order to cOmmemocxate the
day, the programme of February
15th was switched forward to the
22nd. Thinking Day is kept as
an international day by two and
a half million Girl Guides and
Girl Scouts throughout the world
and Guides of different nationali-
ties will be sending birthday
wishes to the Chief Guide, during
the programme.

For Scouts, Mr. D. Francis Mor-
gan will speak of the acclamation
of Lord Baden-Powell as Chief
Scout of All the World at the 1920
World Jamboree : and Mr. A. W.
Hurl! will talk on Baden-Powell’s
last speech at a Jamboree, in Hol-
land in 1937.

Asked whether this programme
was being relayed in the Overseas
Services of the B.B.C., a spokes-
man of the Corporation said to-
day that no arrangements for this
had been made but it was possible
they might be.

40 Years Abroad

Seventy-year-old Samuel Byer
returned to this colony a few days
ago for the first time in 40 years.
All this time he has been in the
United States.

He is on a short visit and has
as yet confined his visits to the
City area, He thinks it has im-
proved a great deal since last he
was here.

He told the Advocate yesterday
that he was born in Jacksons, St.
Michael, In 1907 he left for
Panama and made “good” there.
He returned after three years, just
in time to bury his father, He
went back to Panama soon after
and remained there another year.

New York was his next des-—
tination and in 1915 he married
there. His wife was of Spanish
descent. Two children came of
the marriage—a boy, named Sam-—
uel after him, and a girl, This
boy did war service in Okinawa,
He is now employed at the New
York General Post Office. The
girl is married. Mr. Clarke himself
is an employee at the Brooklyn

As Churchill developed his argu-

“not to mislead the country.” By
his own agreement, Attlee said,

Mao Tse Tung
Missing?

HONG KONG, Feb. 15.

Observers of the China scene
began to express curiosity on
Thursday about the whereabouts
of Mao Tse Tung, Communist
Chinese leader. They noted he
had failed to appear at three im-
portant functions in the last few
days.

Reports in this strategie van-
tage point said last month that
Mao had gone or was going to
Moscow to confer with Stalin on
the Korean war and other Asiatic
developments .

The reports appeared to have
been the result of speculation at
the Chinese Nationalist capital
Taipei, and were not regarded
seriously here at that time.

Mao’s last known public ap-
pearance in Peiping was Janu-
ary 26 when he attended the
celebration of the Indian National

Day.

Land Acquisition

SOME months ago in the House of
Assembly, Mr, W. A. Crawford tabled a
question as to whether the Government
would introduce legislation to prohibit
future acquisition by companies or indivi-
duals of lands in excess of 500 acres. The
second portion of the question asked
whether the Government would appropri-
ate lands of absentee proprietors.

In the reply the Government stated that
there was no need to limit the amount of
holdings and the expropriation of lands
was not at present contemplated.

| In an island where there is crying need
for investment and the establishment of
other industries in order to increase em-
ployment and to raise the standard of liv-
ing, it is discordant to ask a Government
to prevent people from acquiring land over
500 acres. There might be instances where
new industries could be established if raw
material could be supplied for manufacture
and the type of legislation which Mr, Craw-
ford envisaged by the terms of his address
would prevent people from purchasing the
lands which they needed even if there was
a ready seller.

| In the reply the figures were given show-
ing that the proportion of land owned by
absentee proprietors amounted to 6,748
acres. When it is remembered that the
total acreage in Barbados is 106,470 and
that of this 65,000 acres are arable the pro-
portion does not seem high. It was because
of the difficulties experienced by the sugar
industry in past years that the amount of
land owned by absentee proprietors was
considerably reduced. They have now
fallen into the hands of Barbadians in
almost every instance whether they are in
lots of 500 acres or more. At present,
according to the Government reply, the
lands are well cultivated and afford em-
ployment for many workers.

Already there is a strong criticism against
the cutting up of land in Barbados. This
refers to smaller holdings than those men-
tioned by Mr. Crawford but it has been
admitted by those who are specialists in
jar d cultivation that the division of land in

jarbados in recent years has reduced the
overall productivity. The outstanding in-
stance is the low rate of production of peas-
lant lands as compared with that of the
plantations.

But if all these weak spots in the address
ean be excused on the ground of lack of
specialised knowledge, the latter part
which asks for expropriation of people’s
lands cannot be excused on the same
ground, It must be known to Mr. Crawford
that some of the plantations mentioned in
the list as being owned by absentee propri-
etors are really owned by Barbadians in
Panama. Hundreds of these people who
were not allowed to own properties in
Panama contributed their money to some
“society which began ‘years ago investing
in Barbados plantations; and to ask a Gov-
ernment to expropriate them because the
Barbadians who own them are resident
abroad is the antithesis of good govern-
ment.

i Mr, Crawford has been for some time tilt-
ing at the sugar industry. He has failed time
‘and again and now he has attempted by
means of the questions to invite the Gov-
ernment to come to his aid. That industry
today pays greater sums by way of wages
than ever before. The 200,000 in this island
are almost entirely dependent upon it for
their existence and anything which tends
to interfere with the progress of that in-
_dustry or savours of bringing any measure
of dissatisfaction among those who work in
it, is inimical to the interest of the island.

5

’’The Barbados sugar industry has seen
its dark days due to the keen competition
in the world market and the careless atti-
tude of the British Government. It would
be an error of the first magnitude if Barba-
dians now began to create their own diffi-

‘¢ulties for the one industry which has_

enabled us to maintain a stable economy.

_THOSE people in Britain who
think that General MacArthur is

figure — and there are many
anxious to believe it—are reckon-

powerful friends in the U.S.A.

The issue before history is stark tag

clear, Is MacArthur a blunderer
or a martyr? That may sound like
an over-simplification, but it states
the case as Americans see it.

In New York I had conversa-
tions with men of high position
who put a startling new face
upon the whole matter I cannot

manner in which my friends
acquired their information—but J

that it was a weak point, but
assumed that as the Chinese had

They say that having been attack-

ordered to fight under impossible

conditions. His airplanes could not
cross the frontier and therefore
could not bornb the junction points
nor supply depots. Never in history

direct intervention by the United
Nations in Korea but was over-
iruled, He wanted instead to
strengthen the Nationalist forces
in Formosa, re-arm the Japanese
and encourage the irregulars in
China.

3 Because the North Koreans
drove everything before them in
the first stages of the war the
Chinese held back, Then came the
brilliant American landing at
Inchon and the entire situation
was altered.

4 With the North Koreans in
full retreat, and as the United
Nations troops crossed the 38th
Parallel, MacArthur issued his
famous pronouncement that the
boys would be home for Christ~-
mas, (Incidentally, by “home” he
meant Japan.) He did this with a
double purpose—first to encourage
his “troops to make an all-out
offensive to end the war, and
secondly to convince the Chinese
that they were in no danger of
being attacked.

5 Russia cracked the whip and
the Chinese attacked, for it was so
written in the bond,

I have skeletonised the casé put
by MacArthur’s champions, but in
essence it gives the argument as
presented to me,

Frankly I see one puzzling
weakness in it, nor could my
American friends give a satisfac-
tory explanation,

If MacArthur realised the dan-
ger of Chinese intervention, then
why, as he approached the fron-
tier, did he fan out his troops in
a long thin vulnerable line instead
of maintaining defence in depth?

WOMEN

Anyone so ill-advised as to write
at all is bound, sooner or later, to
find himself faced with having to
write about women. This is easy,
because anything written about
women is of absorbing interest
to men; and because it interests
men, it automatically becomes of
intense interest to women, The
reason for this is that all women
want to know what there is about
women that captures the interest
of men,

The only subject of more
absorbing interest to both sexes
than women, is anything written
about a particular woman, And if
the particular woman written
about happens to be known person.
ally to the reader, it becomes of
even more acute interest. The rea-
son for this is, if the reader
happens to be a woman he likes
he is curious to know whether the
writer had enough discernment to
be aware of all her many attrac-
tions and virtues, or whether he
is only the sort of ignorant ass
who is utterly devoid of a sense
of appreciation.

On the other hand, if the reader
be a woman, and the woman
written about happens to be the
sort of dull, unattractive, but ex-
tremely worthy person whom she
likes, she wants to satisfy her
curiosity as to whether or not the
writer was. capable of realising
how much pure. gold can lie
hidden beneath a lack of glamour
and sex apps. If, however, the
woman wri
be one whom she (the Teader)
dislikes, she is equally eager te
lap up what the‘ writer ‘says in
order to discover whether he had
enough discrimination to ‘perceive
the many and obvious’ short-
comings which can lie ‘hidden
beneath a veneer of cleverly ap-
plied cosmetics, and the sort of
artificial allure which appeals to
the crass ignorance of men.

The result is that whatever one
writes about women is bound to
intrigue readers of either sex, no
matter whether it pleases or dis-
pleases them, The writer who
lacks. the courage to write the
truth about this acutely interest-
ing subject, obviously underrates
the fine sense of discrimination of
the feminine mind, Every woman
knows instinctively that a writer

His Critics
Tt must not be imagined that the

and their

As I explained yesterday, there .

is the natural revulsion of
nation enduring defeat for the first
time in its history. Then there
are the blinded and maimed men
coming home with cruel memories
of unbearable cold, and a war
which they do not understand. And
finally, there is the fierce resent-
ment against the failure of the
other United Nations to send their
share of fighting men.

Such bitterness must find ex-
pression, and inevitably much of
it is directed against General
MacArthur. He is described as a
megalomaniac suffering from an
advanced stage of folie de gran-
deur.

Another taunt is that he spends
most of his time being public
relations counsel to MacArthur
the Great. The New York satirists
say that hé intends to crown him-
self Emperor of Japan, The cynics
say it is worse than that—he plans
to become President of the U.S.A.,
even as the defeated Hindenburg
became President of the German
Republic after the 1914-18 war.

It must be ramembered, how-
éver, that such voices are scatter-
ed and have not the cohesion of
those who support the General.

If it is proveq that MacArthur
was the victim of the politicians
who forced him into a campaign
of which he disapproved and then
prevented him from waging full
war against China when she
attacked the UN forces, the tone
will change swiftly. cArthur

about a woman is obviously not
writing about a woman like her-
self. And if what he says coin-
cides with what shehas long sus-
pecteq in the woman written about
she is delighted to have been given
an opportunity of having her
suspicions confirmed.

There is far, far more danger
in writing fulsomely flattering
things about an imaginary woman;
for the moment he does this, every
woman he knows, who could not
possibly fit his description, at once
suspects him of having | been
caught in the toils of some design-
Ing and unscrupulous jade, and
shaving no difficulty in recognising
in her someone they dislike they
begin to wonder what in the name
of heaven any man could see in her
to admire.

Although more has been written
about women than any other sub-
ject under the sun, it always seems
possible to find something more
to say about them, The reason for
this is because despite all that has
been written, not even women,
know very much about themselves,
The reason why they don’t is be-
cause no woman can know what
she herself will do under any given
set of circumstances, And the
reason for this is because no
woman can be relied upon to do
exactly the same thing in the same
way under the same circumstances
at different times. The reason for
that is because she is a woman.

This seeming inconsequence,
which | dull-witted males often
quote as a feminine failing, is, in
fact, one of women’s.most attrac-
tive charms, Without it much of
the interést which men feel for
what any of them might do next
would be lost. After all, if women’s
actions could be predicteq before-
hand with the exactness of a
mathematical problem, life would
be very dull. Who could possibly
want to go on indefinitely adding
two and two together to find out
an answer which they already
know?

THE men and women who look after
Britain’s sick animals are angry about being
called “vets.” They want the full title of “vet-
erinary surgeon” when ever they are talked
about by their clients oy mentioned in print.

Officials of the “vets” union,” the National
Veterinary Medical Association, say “the
word ‘vet’ is too vulgar to be applied to a
learned profession, and lowers our prestige.”

Some “vets” are objecting so strongly that
whenever firms use the word “vet” in their
advertisements they write complaining about
it. /

Dog-food manufacturers recently claimed
in an advertisement that their product is re-
commended by “leading ‘vets,’”. They were
immediately asked to change it to “leading
veterinary surgeons.”

All this is just pompous humbug in my
view. The word “vet” is not an unduly
familiar term, like “doc” for doctor, or “surge”
for surgeon. It is in general use because it is
more convenient than the full title, which is
hard to pronounce properly. ;

For pompous members of the veterinary
profession, I recommend the realistie ap-
proach of an old Scottish “vet” who had built

ties of Great Britain as the centre

They cannot understand why
British policy must consider the

Dominion and Colonial Govern-
ments across the seas.

But even if our cousins did
realise the necessity for a slower

apparent lack of resentment on
our part against the Chinese.

Therefore when the Korean
war is over the American people
will demand a show-down, They
will want to know the truth about
the origin and direction of the
struggle in Korea, They will cali
for some man to put it into words
so that all can understand.

That man may be Genera

China was committed to make war
in Korea, and if he ean further
prove that China is in fact the
Far East partner of the Communisi
Imperialist Axis then the reper-

be that the Republican Party
would capture both Houses of

%A DOMESTIC mystery which has puzzled
housewives for centuries—why even the best
potatoes sometimes turn black when they
are boiled—has been cleared up by Cam-
bridge scientists. They have proved that the
blackening is due to traces of iron.

Some potatoes grown in iron-rich soil, con-
tain so much of the metal that they are bound
to blacken Dr. Eric Bate-Smith told me yes-

search Station.

But potatoes with moderate iron-content
only blacken if they are cooked in an iron
pot.

The scientists are hoping to find a way of
growing potatoes so free from iron that they
will never blacken. Meanwhile, their tip to
housewives is: cook your potatoes in an
aluminium pan,

Another Bridge
Washed Away

_ @ From page 1.

Cyclists and pedestrians, going
home after work during the eve-
ning, made use of every available
method to save their heads and
badies from getting wet. Those
who did not have raincoats and
umbrellas used carg boxes, grease
paper and old newspapers while
some had paper bags pulled wel!
down over their heads,

One man, who was riding along
Clapham Road, met with an acci-
dent, The tail of his raincoat
caught into his cycle and he was
thrown into fhe gutter.

Many country telephone lines
were still out of order, but Mr.
T. G. McKinstry, Secretary of the
Telephone Company, said that
there was no major trouble but
many miscellaneous faults

Because of the darkness of the
evening many motorists had to use
their parking lights while driving
through the City.

Residents of Speightstown were
not hard hit. Although, as in other
places, the rain fell continuously,
no streets were flooded. The Police
told the Advocate at 3.00 p.m.

‘that they were not informed of
any damages to homes or property.

As is always the case whenever
there is a heavy rainfall, the
Bowling Alley became a water
course, swelling the Salt Pond
which overflowed its banks The
water however ran into the sea
aback of the fish market.

Attendances at schools and
churches were poor. Some parents
kept their children at home for the
entire day while others allowed
them the first half of the day at
school.

In the Station Hill District over
three inches were recorded. Many
residents living in hilly districts
in tenantry areas encountered
difficulty when trying to get to
the main roads. They had to use
mud tracks.

The canal along Halls and Con-
stitution Roads was nearly filled.
In its rush for an outlet it brought
down many small trees, bunches
of canes and weeds.

The water from Bonnetts rushed
across Brittons Hill and down
Dalkeith. It branched off on both
sides of the road opposite Abing-
don. Many pedestrians who made
an attempt to cross were forced
to turn back and had to use Cullo-
den Road and Bishop’s Court Hill,

Throughout the rain the smoke
could be seen coming from the
chimney at Bulkeley Factory, In
the surrounding cane fields lab-
ourers braved the weather and
loaded trucks and carts with canes
which supplied this factory.

Etigecumbe was also working
but the gully behind it was flood-
ed. The road along Chfton Hill
and the gully at Chapel were also
flooded. Fields of yams and pota-
toes were covered with water. At
Moncrieffe the water covered
banana trees while at Dodds it
overflowed a field of burnt canes.

In the Carrington’s Village dis-
trict, the scene for the most part
was that of pools of water around
the majority of houses. In some
eases residents had to wade knee-
deep through the water in order
to get from their homes into the
road.

At eight o’clock last night the
rain was still falling steadily in
St. John while it had ceased for
a short period in Christ Church
and St. Michael. By midenight the
sky over the City had q clear look.

Some of the returns up to 6;
o’clock yesterday evening were as
follows: City one inch, 86 parts;
St. Philip two inches 45 parts; St.
Peter one inch, 18 parts; St.
George one inch and St, Lucy one
inch, 73 parts.

‘Gascogne’ Will Call
At Four More Ports

Four West Indian ports have
been added to the itinerary of the
French liner Gascogne this trip.

They are Grenada and British
Guiana when she is southbound
and St. Lucia and Antigua when
she is returning home.

The Gascogne is due to call at
Barbados on Saturday at 6 a.m.
for passengers. She is coming
from British Guiana via Trinidad
and Grenada.

She is expected to leave port for
Plymouth at 10 a.m, the same day
and will be making calls at St,
Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe and
Antigua,

This itinerary has been planned
for the Gaseogne on all her future
calls.

The other French liner, SS.
Colombie, will be running her
usual route.

Messrs. R. M. Jones & Co., Ltd.,
are the agents.

- ACCIDENT CASE
ADJOURNED

A case brought by Cecil Howell
of St. Peter, claiming damages to
the amount of £50 against Jamies
A. Rose of Pavilion Road, Bank
Hall, for damaging his motor
car E—102 on April 10 was yes-
terday adjourned until March 15)
when it came before Judge J. W. B.
Chenery in the Court of Original
Jurisdiction.

Counsel in the case are Mr.
W. W. Reece for Rose and Mr.
J S. B. Dear for Howell. The
was_ brought









case for damages
after the motor car E—102 was in-
volved in an accident with the
motor lorry M—809 near Hole-
town on April 10.

It was alleged in the evidence
that Rose had promised to pay the
damages of the car, trying to
prevent the matter from going to
the court. Mr. Reece in his cross
examination of the witnesses es-
tablished that the car hit the lorry
instead of the lorry hitting the car,

SENIOR GUARDIAN



Mr. R. L. Ward of the St
Luey Vesiry has been elected
g wr Guardian of the irish in

Mr. H



Mr. Ramprashad,
timber and fire coal merchant.
told the “Advocate” yesterday
that British Guiana could supyly
Barbados and some of the other
West Indian islands with some of
their soft woods such as crab
wood, determa and Silver-baili
for the same purpose as the fir
beards which come from Canada.

He said that the wood was not
only strong, but it was cheaner
than that obtained from Canada
and would therefore enable the
colony to keep its currency within
the sterling area and thus save
dollars. :

He used to do a good business
here in the export trade about 18
years ago, shipping kakaralli
timbers to R. and G. Chailenor
and Marshall and Webster. At
the present, he was concentrating
on firewood in British Guiana, bu:
was hoping to resume his expor(
trade with his old friends in the
near future.

In British Guiana, the firewood
and charcoal position was very
good, hence imports from the
colony to Barbados and other
places could be increased.

a wood,

Cheaper Food

He observed that the food sit-
vation here was much cheaper
tuan in Trinidad as meat, chicken
and beef could be obtained more
freely and were even cheaper
than in British Guiana.

Mr. Persaud said that as a rice
producer, he did not think that
Barbados was receiving the best
quality rice from British Guiana.
He believed that the price of the
article was the deciding factor as
compared with the werld markct
prices,

He said that he was however
pleased with the road conditions
here as they were very much
better than those in British Gui-
ana, especially those from the
airport to Georgetown and those
in the country districts.

He hoped that if federation with
the West Indies should come
about, British Guiana might be
able to procure white mar! stone
from Barbados for road building
ia quantity and at cheap prices 11
order that their roads could alse
be well built.

Mr. Persaud who is a ericket
enthusiast is looking forward to
some good cricket between Triti-
dad and Barbados and hopes when
he returns home, he would be able
to impart some of ‘the experience
he has gained to the members of
the Spartan Sports Club of which
he is the Captain.

Milder Rum

Mr. Walte: Guijadeen said that
as a cinema preprietor, he was
impressed by the cinemas he had
seen here and thought that they
compared favourably with those
at home as far as sound anda
seating accommodation were con-
cerned.

He is also a liquor dealer and
bakery proprietor and thought that
the rum here was milder in taste
than that at home and as a blend-
er, he preferred it much more
than the B.G. rum,

As far as the bread was cgn-
cerned, he said that it was better
then that of British Guiana and

Trinidad, especially the butter
bread.
Like Mr. Persaud he was a

cricket enthusiast and captain cf
the Vergenoegen Cricket Club and
weather permitting, he was hop-
ing to see some good cricket here.



“Golfito” Due To-morrow

The Elders and Fyffes’ Golfito
is expected to call at Barbados on
Saturday at 9.30 a.m. from Eng-
land,

The Golfito will be leaving Bar-

bados for Trinidad at 6 p.m. the

same day. Her agents are
Messrs. Wilkinson & Haynes, Co.,

Humour At | ST. JOHN GETS

An Auction

There was a good deal of fun a

an auction sale held at the Depart-
ment of Highways. and Transport
yesterday. What with the rain
and the quality of the articles
the sale could have been a dull

one, but the humour of the buyers
and the “salesability”’ of Mr. Darcy
Scott, Government Auctioneer
made it seem that old tar brooms



minus the handles were not so
hard to sell after all,

The first article sold was ex-
panded metal, quit bit of- it
metal that had seen.many better
days. It went at a small price
Then there was a winch

The
auctioneer offered it optimistically;
sellers heard the offer with ca
tic remarks, and soon’ the pli

took on the atmosphere of
oriental market, except that ac-
cording to the travel. books, the

eastern vendor lowers his price
gradually with much sighing and
raising of the hands to Allah
while yesterday it was the seller
who was egging the price 6n and
up.

An offer of one dollar for ‘the
winch he termed “riGicuious’
and a little later the price reached
five dollars, the intending purchas-

er declaring solemnly. that. he
would pay ho more; but he
eventually paid three dollars
more.

Then a set of tar brooms or
rather the bottoms, went for

small price, so did a set of steel



brooms and a set of scavenging
breoms in the same condition, O!
the buyer some one said, “he has
firewood to last until Christmas,”

And so the story went, Old
shovels were disposed of, and old
agricultural forks. Pincers, span-

ners and files went too, all in good
humour, while outside the rain
poured and leaked in spots through
the roof of the shed where the
sale was carried on.

FINED £2

A fine of £2 to be paid in 14
days or in default one month’s
imprisonment with hard labour
was imposed on Clarence Flem-
ming of Roebuck Street, St
Michael yesterday by His Worship
Mr A. J. H. Hanschell, Senior
Police Magistrate of District “A.’

Flemming was found guilty of a
breach in the Shop Closing Act
and the case which was prosecuted

by Sgt. R. Murrell was brought

A fourth Boys’ Club was open-
ed at Cliff Cottage, St. John; et
5 o'clock yesterday evening, The
few who braved the weather to
witness the opening saw Mr, John

Beckles, M.B.E., perform the
ceremony.

Colonel R, T, Michelin, Com-
missioner of Police, who intro-
duced Mr. Beckles; said that the

Club deserved to succeed, It was
the fourth Boys’ Club in the is-
land. There is an extra-mural
Club at District “A” where the
boys do gardening, physical
training and play games,

He said that they were fortu-
nate in getting the building at
Cliff Cottage. At present 29 boys
had registered..to become mem-
bets but they hoped to increase
this to 50,

Giving a word to the boys, the
Commissioner said that. the-Club
was. opened for their benefit but
apart from. playing games they
would have to learn a trade which
would | becomé’' an everlasting
benefit to them. At the other clubs,
the boys are being taught trades
and they hoped to start classes
in carpentry, tailoring, shoemak-
ing and maybe divawing at that
new club very soon, To become
' eligible for the club they will all
; have to take part in one of these
} trades,
|. He said, “We want to teach you
1 to use your hands so that you
jean have something to carry you



| Sirough in later years.” He said
that anything entirely free was
not much good. -There is a sub-
seription of six cents a month
Which they must pay.

In the country districts there
was very little for the boys to
do to improve their ability or
amuse themselves. .The Boys’

Club was erected for the purpose
of keeping them out of rum shop
verandahs and bad compiny, At
}the club quarters they ‘can play
together and learn together.
He said that Mr. Henriques,

a

pioneer of Boys’ Clubs in BEng-
land, was visiting the island next
month, He will ask Mr. Hen-
riques to visit Cliff Cottage and

have a talk with the boys.

They might wonder why the
Police are taking such an active
part in forming these Boys’ Clubs

It is because in their way of think-
ing it is much better. to devote
time to training . youngsters ‘in

their early days than waiting until
they have grown up and perhaps
taken to crime,

A committee of people iiving in
the area will be responsible for
running the Club. The Police

will be in charge for two years.
By then the Club should be on a
sound footing and able to handle
its own affairs.

He asked them to keep the Club
smart and clean and think of it
as a home away from home.

Mr. John Beckles said that he
was also a social worker like
Colonel Michelin.

It was the first time in the his-
tory of the island that Boys’ Clubs
have been opened. He said that
Colonel Michelin, as a visitor to
jarbados, has done more than
Barbadians.

“The boys of to-day will be
men of to-morrow. Learn to
shoulder your burden,” he said.
He wished them success.

Mr. O, T. Allder, M.C.P., one

a

of *the representatives of the
parish, said that he was inter
ested in the Boys’ Clubs ever,

since the opening o
Bay Street?

The hallmavk of advancing
youth is discipline. He asked the
boys to use the Club as a source
whereby they could discipline
themselves. They must try to go
upwards and they needed insti-
tutions such as these to {guide
them. If they allow an opportu-
nity like this to pass them by they
must blame themselves.

He said, “Colonel Michelin has
lit a torch which I hope others
will follow. This is a good ven-
ture and I wish you God speed.”

Among those present were—
Capt. W. A. Farmer, Major
R. A. Stoute, Capt. F. Parris,

DOCTORS AND DENTISTS
R, R. W. SORENSEN, (Ley-
ton, Lab.) asked the Secre-
tary of State for the Colonies
approximately how many foreign-
ers ‘Or persons” whose qual-
ifications were secured = in
foreign countries have obtained
British registration for medical or
dental service in the Colonies.
R. J. GRIFFITHS: On the
assumption that my hon.
Friend refers to doctors and den-
tists with foreign qualifications in
colonial Government employment
who are registered in the United
Kingdom, the answer is 37 doctors
and two dentists. There are also
a few doctors in the employment
of colonial Governments who are

not registered in the United
Kingdom,

R. SORENSEN: As there are

a number of doctors with

foreign qualifications who

could
well be used

in .colonial areas,
what steps are being taken to
enable these doctors, especially
those living in this country, to
secure British registration?
R. GRIFFITHS: I should be
glad if my hon. Friend
would put that Question down, It

is very important and I should

prefer to see it on the Order Paper

before I reply. ;
DOMINICA

(Geneva Estate)
R-) H. HYND (Accrington
Lab.) asked the Secretary
of State for the Colonies why the
Government of Dominica aban-
doned its project of buying 600
acres of the Geneva estate, result-
ing in this acreage being bought
privately and 368 tenants being
given notice to leave; and whether
he will advise the Government
that this 600 acres should be
bought in the interests of the ten-

ants.
M®*: J. GRIFFITHS : After this
estate had been sold priv-
ately, and notice to leave had been
given to some 211 tenants, the
Government of Dominica then
proposed to purchases 600 acres
compulsorily, but the project had
to be abandoned because ex-ten-
ants, whom the Government pro-
posed to resettle on the land, de-
clined to enter into tenancy
agreements with the Government
providing for reasonable rents and
safeguards for good husbandry.
The new owner has offered the
ex-tenants contracts which about
60 have accepted. Many ex-ten-
ants have land elsewhere, The
answer to the last part of the
Question is in the negative,
R. HYND: Is not my right
hon, Friend aware that the
tenant are nervous in case they
are enslaved to the new owners of
the property? Would it not be
better that they should become
the tenants of the Government?
R. GRIFFITHS: This great
body of tenants diq not
accept the offér of the Govern-
ment, and, since, they refused it,
the Government are seeing that
the new conditions are as good as

they can be made,

Supply Them Afterwards

The Colonial army could raise
a field force. He did not mean
for service in Europe, but for
service in the Far East and Near
East.

“Look at the magnificent war
record of West African and East
Atrican troops in Burma during
the war’ Gammans added.

“Would not men of that sort be
equally useful to fight the war
in Malaya?

Gammans anticipated the Secre—
tary for War’s answer on the
equipment question by saying: “If
we were to raise long service
troops from the Colonial Empire,
we could get them into formations,
trained and disciplined, and supply
them afterwards.”

There was a great reservoir of
officers from the Indian army, who
would willingly take service in the

PAGE FOUR BARBADOS ADVOCATE FRIDAY. FEBRl'ARY >. "51 BARBADOS £A ADVtXrfTE Friday. February 1C, 1951 Land Acquisition SOME monlhs ago in the House of Assembly. Mr. W. A. Crawford tabled a question as lo whether the ('lovernment would introduce legislation to prohibit future acquisition by companies or individuals of lands in excess of 500 acres. The second portion of the question asked whether the Government would appropriate lands of absentee proprietor!". In the reply the Government stated that there was no need to limit the amount of holdings and the expropriation of lands was not at present contemplated. : In an island where there is crying need for investment and the establishment of other industries in order to increase employment and to raise the standard of living, it is discordant to ask %  Government to prevent people from acquiring land over 500 acres. There might be instances where new industries could be established if raw material could be supplied lor manufacture and the type of legislation which Mr. Crawford envisaged by the terms of his address would prevent people from purchasing the lands which they needed even if there was a ready seller. ) In the reply the figures were given showing that the proportion of land owned by absentee proprietors amounted to 6.748 acres. When it is remembered that the total acreage in Barbados is 106.470 and that of this 65.000 acres are arable the proportion does not seem high. It was because of the difficulties experienced by the sugar industry in past years that the amount ol land owned by absentee proprietors was considerably reduced. They have now fallen into the hands of Barbadians in aJmost every instance whether they are in lots of 500 acres or more. At present, according to the Government reply, the lands are well cultivated and afford employment for many workers. Already there is a stiong criticism a;ainst the cutting up of land in Barbados. This refers to smaller holdings than those mentioned by Mr. Crawford but it has been admitted by those who are specialists in land cultivation that the division of land In %  Barbados in recent years has reduce*! the overall productivity. The outstanding instance is the low rate of production of peasant lands as compared with that of the plantations. But if all these weak spots in the address can be excused on the ground of lack of specialised knowledge, the latter part which asks for expropriation of people's lands cannot be excused on the same ground. It must be known to Mr. Crawford that some of the plantations mentioned in the list as being owned by absentee proprietors are really owned by Barbadians in Panama. Hundreds of these people who were not allowed to own properties in Panama contributed their money to some society which began years ago investing in Barbados plantations; and to ask a Government to expropriate them because the Barbadians who own them are resident abroad is the antithesis of good government. Mr. Crawford has been for some time tilting at the sugar industry. He has failed time tfnd again and now he has attempted by means of the questions to invite the Government to come to his aid. That industry today pays greater sums by way of wages than ever before. The 200,000 in this island are almost entirely dependent upon it for their existence and anything which tends to interfere with the progress of that industry or savours of bringing any measure of dissatisfaction among those who work in it, is inimical lo the interest of the island. The Barbados sugar industry has seen its dark days due to the keen competition in the world market and the careless attitude of the British Government. It would be an error of the first magnitude if Barbadians now began to create their own difficulties for the one industry which has enabled us to maintain a stable economy. MacARTHUR Blunderer Or Martyr ? THOSE people in Britain who nk that General MacArthur finished ai a military and political 'Inure — and there arc many mxious to believe it—arc reckonng withnut ihe Gcncrul and hh powerful friends in the U.S.A. The issue before history is lUft clear.

This is the case they make for MacAr't m 1 The General knew tnat Russia. China and North Korea had reachaitreemenl thai the North should attack the South, and that f the United Nations intervened China would enter the war. 2 MacArthur was against direct Intervention by the United Nations in Korea but was overruled. He wanted Instead to trengthen the Nationalist forces in Formosa, re-arm the Japanese and encourage the irregulars in China Because the North Korean* drove everything before them in tn* first stages of the war the Chinese held back. Then tame the brilliant American landing at Inchon and the entire situation was altered. With the North Koreans in full retreat, and as the United Nations troops crossed the 38th Parallel, MacArthur issued infamous pronouncement that the boys would be home for Christ %  mas. (Incidentally, by "home" he meant Japan.) He did this with a double purpose—first to encourage his troops to make an all-out offensive to end the war, and secondly to convince the Chinese that they were in no danger of being attacked. Russia cracked the whip and the Chinese attacked, for it was *• written in the bond. I have skeletonised the rase pu* by MacArthur's champions, but in essence it gives the argument as presented to me. Frankly I see one puzzling weakness in it, nor could n>y American friends give a satisfactory explanation.

At the moment he is muzzled worn D COPYMCHT Hr-sravzo hy Washington, but when the —L.E.S. White W O M E N Anyone so ill-advised as to write at all is bound, sooner or later, to find himself faced with having to write about women. This is cosy because anything written about women Is of absorbing intcic-t to men; and because It interests men. it automatically becomes ir intense interest to women. The reason for this is that all women want to know what there Is about women that enpturcs the Interest of men. The only subject of more bsorbing interest to both sexes than women. Is anything written about a particular woman. And if the particular woman written about happens to be known personlly lo the reader, it becomes of even more acute intern:.i. The reason for this is, If tinreader happens to be a woman he likes he Is curious to know whether the writer had enough discernment to be aware of all her many attractions and virtues, or whether he jnly the sort of ignorant as.* who Is utterly devoid of a sense of appreciation. On the other hand, If the reader be a woman, and the woman written about happens to be the sort of dull, unattractive, but extremely worthy person whom she likes, she wants to satisly her curiosity as to whether or not the writer was capable of realising how much pure gold can He hidden beneath a lack of glomour nd sex appeal. If, however, the woman written about happens tn be one whom she (the reader) dislikes, she is equally eager u lap up what the writer says In order lo discover whether he had enough discrimination to perceive the many and obvious shortcomings which can Ho hjdden beneath u veneer of cleverly applied cosmetics, and the sort of artificial allure which appeals l" the crass ignorance of men. The result is that whatever one writes about women is bound to Intrigue readers of either sex. no matter whether it pleases or displeases them. The writer who lacks the courage to untr thi truth about this acutely interesting subject, obviously underrates the fine sense of discrimination ol the feminine mind. Every woman knows instinctively that a writer who says anything derogatory By C. G. about a woman Is obviously not writing about a woman like herself. And if what he says coincides with what she has long suspected " the woman written about she is delighted to have been given an opportunity of having her suspicions confirmed. There Is for, far more danger in writing fulsomely flattering things about an Imaginary woman; for the moment he does this, every woman he knows, who could not possibly fit his description, at once suspects him of having been caught in the toils of some designing ond unscrupulous Jade, and having no difficulty in recognising in her someone they dislike they begin to wonder what in the name of heaven any man could see in her to admire. Although more has been written about women than any other subject under the sun. it always seems possible to find something more to say about them. The reason for this is because despite all that bag been written, not even women, know very much about themselves. The reason why tney don't is because no woman can know what she herself will do under any given set of circumstances. And the reason for this Is because no woman can be relied upon to do exactly the same thing In the same way under the same circumstances at different times. The reason lor that is because she is a woman. This -seeming inconsequence, which dull-witted males often quote as a feminine failing. Is. in fact, one of women's most attractive chorms. Without it much of the interest which men feel for what any of them might do next would be lost. After all. If women's actions could be predicted beforehand with the exactness of a inatheinatieal problem, life would be very dull. Who could poaathly want lo go on Indefinitely adding two and two together to find out an answer which they already hnasjrl There is a noisy tree in Barbados which is known as "Woman's Tongue". This nomenclature is unfair to the tree, which for many months in the year is as silent av any other tree. There is much more Justification for the woman who dlsplensed with something done by the House ot Assembly, described its members as a "pack of old women." despite the fact that the volubility of old women is not fined to only one day in the week Nothing could be more unfaii than the criUclsm of women by men. who, jealous of the upee' with which women come to thei conclusions, try tn damn the method they employ by scornfully describing tt as mere feminine intuition. Women deserve great credit for the tolerance with which they view the laboriou and lengthy process by which mei arrive at decisions on important matters. In a murder case it tak< a whole police force, a learned judge, several distinguished members of tinBar, a number of witnesses, and a Jury days to de cide whether or not a woman l: guilty of having wilfully and with malice aforethought put too much arsenic In the coffee. Any woman worth her salt, after taking one look at the prisoner the dock and hearing what sort of bloke the husband was. could tell you in five minutes whether this was a ease of murder merely one of justifiable homicide All through the ages -men havi considered that one of women': greatest faults is her unreasonable determination to have th< last word. The real truth is, It is not that women want the las' word. All thev want is to prevent men from gratifying their owi unreasonable desire to have It And they arc quick enough tt recognise that, unless men wen content to let all their argument 1 with a woman endl in a vocal duet, there is no way of preventing a man having the last word except by having it themselves. This desire on the part of both sexes to have the last word is clear proof of how little fundamental difference there Is between the make-up of a man and a woman. It would seem the i real difference lies in the facs that one happens to be n n and the other cannot help being that tantalising, unpredictable, illogical, and therefore intense). attractive creature, a woman. The Man Who Cures The Cat Hates To Be Called VET By CHAPMAN PINCMfR THE men and women who look after Britain's sick animals are angry about being called "vets." They want the full till.? of "veterinary surgeon" when ever they are talked about by their clients o/mentioned in print. Officials of the "vets" union," the National Veterinary Medical Association, say "the word 'vet' is too vulgar to be applied to a learned profession, and lowers our prestige." Some "vets" are objecting so strongly that whenever firms use the word "vet" in their advertisements they write complaining aboul it. Dog-food manufacturers recently claimed in an advertisement that their product is recommended by "leading 'vets,'". They were immediately asked to change it to "leading veterinary surgeons." All this is just pompous humbug in my view. The word "vet" is not an unduly familiar term, like "doc" for doctor, or "surge" for surgeon. It is in general use because it is more convenient than the full title, which is hard to pronounce properly. For pompous members of the veterinary profession. I recommend the realistic approach of an old Scottish "vet" who had bunt up a terrific reputation among the farmers of three counties. ^rftien asked by an earnest veterinarycollege student how he encouraged his clients tn address him. the old man said: "Well, some call me 'vet', a few call me 'Mister,' but most of them just call me 'Wullie'. ^A DOMESTIC mystery which has puzzled housewives for centuries^—why even the best potatoes sometimes tuin black when they are boiled—has been cleared up by Cambridge scientists. They have proved that the blackening is due to traces of iron. Some potatoes grown in iron-rich soil, contain so much of the metal that they are bound to blacken Dr. Eric Bale-Smith told me yesterday, when I toured his first-rate Food Research Station. But potatoes with moderate iron-content only blacken if they are cooked in an iron pot. The scientists are hoping to find o way of growing potatoes so free from iron that they will never blacken. Meanwhile, their tip to housewives is: cook your potatoes in an aluminium pan. ^^^_ FROM "Eternal Eve," a 699-page book by Dr. Harvey Graham, giving an exciting running commentary on the fight by doctors and midwives which has made childbirth so safe that now only one mother in 1,000 rifot her life through having %¡ baby, I take the?c quotes:— • The argument that the pain of childbirth is essential for the full development of mother-love has been revived recently. So fa its exponents have failed to convince any woman who has ever borne a child. • We are fast reaching a stage where the chances of any mother dying of a childbirth infection will be about 10,000 to one against • Half the women in the most civilised countries in the world bear their children with no more relief from pain than is usual in the darkest jungle. Their more fortunate sisters aro saved the worst of the pain for perhaps a tenth of the time. • A girl of eight has become a mother. So has a woman of 63. • A Cassarean operation is now no more dangerous than an operation for appendicitis. • Obstetricians and gynaecologists play a large part in bringing about the saving of infant lives. But the part played by midwives is more important. -j|r Just as in every flock of hens there is a social ladder ranging from the recognised top bird to a fowl regarded by the rest as the lowest thing that clucks, so among cows there are rungs of respectability. Social supremacy in the fowl-run is signified by who pecks whom. In a herd of cows it is a case of who butts whom, scientists report after four years' close study of bovine behaviour. When two cows who do not.know each other meet they begin a butting duel. The winner establishes her social superiority for all time, and with it the right to butt the loser without retaliation. Butting contests between twins always ended in a draw, the scientists report. Such a social stalemate was never observed among less closely related cows.—I..E.S. Oar Header* S*T: ClIHtotllH / ninn The rdiior. the Advocate SIR,—Your speci.ll correspondent wrote nu-l. about the proposed Customs Union, but ho is not. I four. ;i very leliable guide. He claims that "fcv. If any, living in or having deaUnfl with the west Indies would oppose the conception of the proposed union." In this he is probably COTM-I because, in these difficult tlgys. few bother ;il* ideas. But to Illustrate the that, in '. would lo the Public the Union, he seta out threst examples.
