ROME, Feb. 20.

Giancarlo Matteoti, Parliamentary Deputy of the Commu-
nist allied Socialist Party, has called for support of the anti-

Cominform Italian Workers’ Movement the

newspaper

Giornale D’Italia reported today.

The paper said Matteoti son
como Matteoti, murdered on

ESTATE OF HENRY

DETROIT, Feb. 20.

ing the palatial Ford home
—Reuter.

In a speech at Fratta Polesine
near Kovigo, Matteoti was re-
ported to have said: “The Com-
munists call Cucchi, and Magnani
traitors. That is a grave error
because the two deputies are in-
tellectuals fighters.

It is not a question of betrayal,
but of a courageous crisis of con-
science which is in process of
determining a national politicai
crisis”.

Matteoti was last week. sus-
pended from all party actvity fo:
six months. His book “Capitalism
and Communism” was condemned
as a “complete antithesis of the

doctrine policy and traditions of |

the party”.
The parwy executive said the
book was “based on informaticn

taken from sources of stale anti-
Communist propaganda”.

If Matteoti’s words at Fratta
Polesine are confirmed, he will be
the first Parliamentary deputy of
the extreme left wing openly to
support Cucchi and Magnani.

WEDNESDAY,

British Manufacturers Are: ©
Anxious To Be On Cordial Ge:

FEBRUARY 21,

1951

Terms With West Indies

Barbados has always been

a very good market for the

United Kingdom and British manufacturers are very
anxious to maintain their cordial relationships Mr. A. R.
Starck, O.B.E., United Kingdom Trade Commissioner in
the British West Indies with headquarters in Trinidad told



the Advocate yesterday.

Engineers Expect
ToRepair‘Gopinsay’
By Thursday

Engineers working on _ the
damaged boiler of the Copinsay,
which still occupies her berth
alongside the Pier Head, are push-
ing ahead to complete repairs by
Thursday.

Captain Bodden told the
Advocate yesterday that he had
high hopes of the Royal Innis-
killing Fusiliers leaving by his
ship for St. Lucia on Thursday.
They might however have to spend
another day or two in Barbados, he
said.

The blown boiler tubes, which
caused the delay at Barbados, have
been taken out and new ones are
to replace them. The engineers
had no difficulty in getting the
tubes as they had brought along
some with them on the ship.

For the past three days when the
tubes were blown, the C y
had to depend on shore batteries
for electricity. No current could
be got from the ship’s batteries
with the boiler not working.

After a short stay ip St. Lucia,
the Copinsay will take the Fusi-
liers back to Jamaica where they
will be stationed until leaving for
England sometime in March,

The Copinsay will then resume
her normal duties as a troop and
cargo transport for the Royal
Army Service Corps of Jamaica.

Her crew of 18 are from the
Cayman Islands and Jamaiea,
They are civil employees of the
War Department, attached to the
R.A.S.C.. Few of them are ex-
servicemen.

Taking a tour with them is
Captain George Ansell, Super-
intendent of the R.A.S.C. fleet
in Jamaica.

Members of the crew say that
they enjoy working in the service
and, especially, on the Cepinsay.
They find the conditions of the

work4 satisfactory — neither too
easy hor too hard,
Captain Bodden said that he

thought the reception given the
officers and company of the Fusil-
jers and also the members of his
ship since they were here was the
best they got throughout the tour.

He was much impressed with
the “clean look” of the harbour
and the surroundings which, in his
opinion, was 100 per cent better
than what he found at Trinidad or
Jamaica.



Stole Cocoanuts

_ SENTENCE of three months’
imprisonment with hard labour
was passed on 32-year-old Milton
Farrell of Goodland, St. Michael
by His Worship Mr. H, A. Talma,
Police Magistrate of District “A”
yesterday.

Farrell was found guilty of the
larceny of cocoanuts valued at 2/-
and the property of Colin Cheese-
man of Lands Ends, St, Michael
on January 22,

Colin Cheeseman said that on
January 22, while he was walking
around his ground he saw Farreli
in one of his cocoanut trees.
Farrell on seeing him came down
and gin with eight cocoanuts in
his hand. He ran after him and
later reported the matter to the
Police,

Later the same day Farrell was
arrested by Police Constable
Clarke of the C.1.D.

Seibert Waldron—keeper of the
criminal records—told the court
that Farrell has eight previous
convictions for larceny.

world follow this simple, inexpen-
beauty care;

Mr. Starck is in Barbados on
one of his usual visits to renew
contacts with various
houses, to look into commercial
conditions generally and to see
what he can do to help local trad-
ers in their desire to buy goods
from the United Kingdom.

He said that in the last few
months, it had become increasing-
ly difficult to get supplies from
Britain because of the call for re-
armament, In certain instances,
raw materials were almost unob-
tainable by British manufacturers
because of stock piling in various
parts of the world. That had had
the effect of forcing the prices of
raw materials and of course, had
been reflected in the cost of the
manufactured articles,

In the case of Britain, it was a
fact that the increase in the cost
of manufactured goods exported,
was very much below the prices
which the United Kingdom manu-
facturers had to pay for import-
ing raw materials. The British
manufacturer was fully conscious
of the competition he would have
to meet in the future and it was
not his desire to force up prices,
but to maintain them at the low-
est possible level.

Remove Restrictions

On the question of the dollar
Liberalisation Plan, he said that
it was a fact that both Canada
and the United States had shown
full understanding of the difficul-
ties which had faeed Great Brit-
ain and the rest of the sterling
area during the past few years. A
responsible people in North
America had done their best to
face the situation, and had not
been critical of the drastic steps
which it was necessary to take in
order to conserve dollars, It was
therefore a matter of great satis-
faction to responsible opinion in
the United Kingdom when it was
possible to reach an agreement
last year in the dollar Liberalisa-
tion Plan, and no one was more
pleased than the people in Britain
that it had been possible to relax
the very severe restrictions which
had been in force.

“Competition is a healthy thing
at all times” Mr, Starck said and
no one wanted controls for the
sake of having them. It was hoped
that it would be possible in due
course to remove restrictions en-
tirely.

As he saw things at the moment,
he was afraid that controls in
some form were going to be with
them for a long time.’ Neverthe-
less, even a slight modification
would bring about competition
which, it was hoped, would be of
benefit to the consumer.

High Fares

Asked whether he had anything
to say with regard to the shipping
position between the United King-
dom and the West Indies, Mr.
Starck said that it was a matter
which was causing concern in all
parts of the West Indies and the
United Kingdom,

So far as freight was concerned,
the position was not very serious,
although it was far short of being
perfect, but there was a lot which
ought to be done to satisfy the
demand for passenger traffic, The
big difficulty as he saw it, was the
high cost of ship building, and
unless fares were set at an ex-
tremely high figure or some form
of subsidisation was given, there
was not much inducement for
owners to lay down new passen-
ger vessels.

He was very pleased to hear
that the sugar crop of Barbados
was estimated to’ be a record one
and he hoped the unseasonal rains
of the last few days would not
continue and that the crop would
come up to expectations.

Shark’s Liver At
U.S. $571 Per Ton

A NEW Company has recently
been formed in the Iles du Salut,
French Guiana, whose main activi-
ties will be shark-fishing and the
processing and export of coconuts.
This enterprise was launched
within the framework of the
economic development plan of
French Guiana,

At the present time the com-
pany is in a position to export
shark livers giving 5,000 interna-
tional units of vitamin A per
gramme of liver, at a price of
$571 U.S., per ton f.o.b., and dried
shark fins at $2,286 U.S., per ton
f.o.b. It can also export decorti-
cated coconuts of an average
weight of 750 grammes priced at
2.57 cents U.S., per unit f.0.b.,
sacks for coconuts to be supplied
by the buyer.

The company is also seeking a
contract with manufacturers of
fish meal, It is capable of supply-
ing 50,000 kilos of fresh fish
monthly.

In addition, this new French

Guiana company can _ supply

SOIL LOSS

WITH the unusual and heavy rains dur-
ing the last two weeks, there has been
much flooding and in some instances con-
siderable erosion has taken place in many
districts.

Some years ago the Government in an
attempt to reduce unemployment in this
island, allocated funds for the planting of
trees at Haggatts and along the Eastern
Coast. This is one form of preventing soil
erosion and the other is contour cultivation
as strongly advocated by Mr. Halcrow
former Deputy Director of Agriculture. It
has been’extensively practised in some dis-
tricts.

In an island, almost purely agricultural,
it is imperative that every effort be made
to prevent soil erosion. During the last
few days the heavy rains washed away
several acres of canes and other crops but
it is noticeable that in those areas where
contour cultivation had been practised the
loss was considerably less than in others.
It is therefore necessary that the type of
cultivation which would prevent erosion
should be encouraged throughout the is-
land wherever there is sloping land.

At Mt. Wilton plantation, an area where
erosion is common, it has been proved that
where trees have been planted erosion has
been stopped. This method has proved suc-
cessful in places where the slope in the land
is really steep. In other places contour cul-
tivation can do much to conserve the top
soil.

It would be well for cultivators of large
and small plots to remember that the
Department of Agriculture is maintained
for disseminating information on such
things as the agricuiturists need and the
officers of that Department are always
ready and willing to be of service to them.
Such advice and guidance should not only
be sought in times of stress or unusual
happenings as at present.

The prevention of soil erosion is a matter
which vitally affects the economy of thou-
sands of people. It was pointed out in a
public lecture a few years ago that the
amount of damage done by soil erosion is
not fully estimated until some time has
elapsed.

Home For Dogs

PUBLIC notices by the Commissioner of
Police:and various Parochial Treasurers
have been warning dog owners that this is
the month of February and so the statu-
tory period for the payment of dog licenses,

The result has been that within the last
. few weeks several emaciated dogs can be
seen wandering about the streets, because
the owners rather than pay the tax, have
chased them from their homes. There is
still on the Order Paper of the House of
Assembly a bill to amend the Dog License
Act and many people are of opinion that as
the tax on dogs was instituted at a time
when the revenue of this island was very
low and it was necessary to tap every
source for funds, it could now be repealed.
The opposite result might of course ensue
and even greater numbers of thin stray
dogs abound.

While the act is in force however-it is
obligatory to pay the tax and many people
would rather commit an act of cruelty than
pay the five shillings.

The answer to the prevention of this
form of cruelty would be the erection of a
home for dogs, such as there is at Batter-
sea. Wher'these animals stray or are un-
wanted they are taken to the home where
they are cared for until such time as peo-
ple who would have pets take them to pri-
vate homes. The financial condition of the
local branch of the S.P.C.A. is not such as
to make such a venture possible but some-
thing could in the meantime be done to
prevent the continuance of a cruel method
of chasing dogs from homes and leave them
to destroy people’s poultry and small stock
when they seek to satisfy the pangs of
hunger.

SEMPER AUXILIO

(J. C. VINTER: 1919-1936)

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

When Sirikes Fold Up...When -Mass Demonstrations’ Fall Flat

Are Stalin’s Men
Shamming?

ROME,

HERE in Rome LI. have been
listening to the anxious talk of
Intelligence men puzzling over
Communist failures in Italy, and
asking:—

“Are they shamming? Are the
Communists deliberately pulling
‘their punches to lead us into an
under-estimation of their strength?
Or are they finished as a revolu-
tionary force? Can we dismiss the
Red Fifth Column as a bogey?”

I heard the same bewildered
talk in Korea six months ago,
when vast stores of ammunition
were stacked —- unguarded —-
between giant petrol tanks at
Pusan.

Although Communists, hundreds
of them, had filtered into the
dock area, there was no attempt
at sabotage.

Why? The American Intelli-
gence officers, who finalWy per-
suaded the Koreans to supply
guards, were baffled.

This time I am more anxious
to solve the problem, For I have
spent the past weeks travelling
across Europe trying to find out
what the Communists are up to.

I wanted to find out to what
extent they have penetrated the
economic and administrative
machines, how far Moscow can
rely on them to form an effective
Fifth Column,

In France I found that the
Communist paper Humanite
reported that 50,000 demonstra-
tors “made Eisenhower fear the
wrath of Paris.” 2

I was there, I saw only a few

men throwing handbills and
shouting: “Home, Eisenhower.”
And No Pay

HERE in Italy, too, as in France,
the attempts of the Communist-
controlled trades unions to organ-
ise anti-Eisenhower strikes or
mass demonstrations of workers
have failed.

In one place only was the strike
order obeyed—-in the great State-
owned shipbuilding yard at La
Spezia. Out of 12,000 men
employed there, 3,000 struck.

When they reported for work
the following day, they were
instantly dismissed. After 12 days
of unemployment without pay
they were allowed back; all that
is, except the ringleaders.

The importance is in that
neither the party nor the union
has attempted to take the slight-
est action in reprisal or in
defence of the penalised strikers.

What is more, both in France
and in Italy the Communist cam-
paign calling on dockers and
transport workers to boycott the
import of American armamertts
has been a fiasco,

In France the attempts of the
Communists to call strikes in pro-
test against German re-armament
brought no success.

It’s No Sham

THE main reason why some
experts are puzzled by what they
consider the deliberate passivity
of the Communists is, that the
find it difficult to reconcile wit
reports they have had of con-
tinued Communist efforts to
build up militia organisations in
France and Italy.

“If these militia groups are as

better” is the argument I have
heard put forward.

In_ Italy the militia—based as

in France on Communist youth

organisations and former resis-

tance vcterans—according to some
estimates, has 70,000 members.

Until recently they were plenti-

279 =sub-
1,800 automatic
6,000 carbines, 26 radio
transmitters, 700 tons of explo-
sives.

But to-day the men who have
trained to use this armament do
nothing. Their comrades in
France are equally quiet. A
sham? A trick? I don’t think so.

Three factors have brought
about the new situation, which in
my view makes a_ considerable
change in the military defence of
Western Europe; —

1 THE EMERGENCE, both in
France and in Italy, of powerful
and effective trades unions which
repudiate the Communist Party,
protect non-Communist workers
defying shop stewards against
Communist reprisals. AND nego-
tiate wage agreements.

2 THE IMPATIENCE of work-
ers at-losing pay by being called
out on strike for political causes
dictated by Moscow.

And they do lose pay when they
strike now. For the Communtst
shop stewards can no longer
guarantee pay packets as they
could only two years ago in both
France and Italy.

Then, even if a man _ stayed
away from work four days «4
week, either for a strike or to do
party jobs, the’ unions would force
the employer to pay out if a man
turned up on the fifth day.

3 THE ANTI-STALINIST
rebellion of an increasingly large
number of young Communists,
especially in Italy, who joined the
party during the war’ in order to
fight for Italy against the. Ger—
mans,

Now they follow the example
of Yugoslavia’s Marshal Tito ia
repudiating Moscow's insistence
on unquestioning subordination of
all national interests to those of
the Kremlin.

High-ups Go

THE latest Italian rebels are
two high-up Communist Deputies
Cucchi and Magnani. They were
the chiefs of the Commun’st
Party in its North Italian streng-
hold of Emilia Province where
67,000 out of 390,000° inhabitants
are party members.

The immediate pretext for
their resignation from the party
was their rebellious declaration.
“In the event of war, every
Italian must defend the sacred
soil of the Patherland against
whatever Powers may be the
aggressor.”

I spoke with some of Cucchi’s
and Magnani’s supporters in their
Rome headquarters. They seemed
confident that, they would be able
to split the Communist Party wide
open.

dumps.

machine guns,



They told me; “We have many
high-up. sympathisers who are
still in the party. We are in touch
with them, despite the Communist
secret po: oo.” *

Yes, I am convinced that unless
Soviet troops actually set foot on
the soil of Italy or France, we can
safely rule out any kind of mass
rising by the Communists and
their followers or the general
strikes aimed at paralysing the
country,

But I am equally certain that
the Moscow Politburo and_ its
agents in the Cominform have
realised this. They have adapted
their planning accordingly.

In their propaganda they will
attempt to recover the lost sym-
pathies of the French and Italiahs
by offering these war-weary peo-
ples the possibility of keeping neu-
tral in any conflict.

While I was in Paris a piece of
intelligence came through saying
that in the event of war the Rus-
sians intended to by-pass a neu-
tralised France. They would
blitz their way with airborne
landings into what they censid-
ered the main American bridge-
heads: Britain and Spain.

Â¥o my amazement, I could see
that this prospect—which if suc-
cessful would, of course, inevi-
tably entail the subjection of
France to Russia and its bombard-
ment by. the Americans—was
greeted with eager interest,
amounting almost to satisfaction,
even by French high-ups.

And An Echo

In Rome, I sat for half an hour
in the :ommittee room of the Na-
tfonal Assembly with a Demo-
Christian anti-Communist M.P.,
Igino Giordani, while he explained
to me exactly why he was against
Italy taking any part in rearma-
ment for war.

“Tf the Russians mean to make
war they will not wait for us to
rearm they will attack us right
way.

“We would do much better to
fight Communism by spending
cn social services money we are
wasting on usélés$ rearmament.”

His last. phras¢ was a verbatim
echo of what a young Communist
worker had said to me only a
few hours earlier in a suburban
district headquarters of the Com-
munist Party.

When a bit later, I suggested
to an Italian elder statesman
that Italy’s role in the event of
urmed conflict might be benevo-

lent, neutrality he smiled and
said:—
“Maybe, But one should never

say .so. There are too many
neutralists around in Italy and
in France, We must not encourage
these cowards,”

New Methods...

Meanwhile to attain their object
of paralysing the economic, in-
dustrial transport, and mobilisa-
tion mechanisms of France and
lialy in the event of war with
Western Euro: the _Cominform
will use methods unconnected with
mass strikes and mass demon-
strations.

What I have discovered about
this, the secret underground side
cf the Communist plan, I will tell
you in my next despatch, ,

You Will Never Get Us Out

“THE native population is
increasing rapidly; in 1890 it was
estimated to be half a million;
to-day it is two millions. The
races do not want to mix.

“What are we doing to improve
race relations? One European who
is rude and tactless to the African
does more to produce bad feeling
than anything else, Europeans
must always be on their best
behaviour. The key to our. policy,
in contradiction to the colonial
policy of Britain is that we place
economic advance and provision
of social amenities a long way
ahead of political advancement.
Economically and socially, ad-
vancement can be speeded up in
proportion to the funds you have
available to spend, but political
advancement can only come
slowly; it is not a flower that
takes kindly to hot-house treat-
ment.

We believe that the native is
entitled to lead a normal family
life in towns. A few years ago
an Act was passed compelling the
employer of an African in the
European area to supply proper
quarters, or, failing these, to pay
the rent for quarters, By that
means decent conditions are pro-
vided, where the men can live a
good family life. The rents paid
are economic and they are paid
by the employer. Provision is_
made for the native-gradually to
take over paying the rent as his
wages increase. I think we shall
never do much with these people
until we have established a native
middle-class; after all, they were
the background of this country
at one time, There are other pro-
visions to safeguard the African,
but I have said enough to indi-
cate to you that we are doing a
good deal to ensure that he does
have a home when he comes to
the European town, and that we
do appreciate that the African 1s

growth of the towns, we are -hope-
lJessly behind. in the construction
of houses.

In the European towns we have
industrial councils consisting of
employers and’ employees, who
fix conditions of service for
skilled and semi-skilled trades.
There is no legal colour bar in
the trades, but in practice the
native is not worth the wages
fixed. It has taken many years
to evolve the trade union move-
ment in Britain, This movement,
which is much vaunted by the
British Colonial Office at present,
may be found to be quite unsuit-
able for Africans when it is put

into practice; on the other
hand, it may _ be _ suitable.
Africans in Southern’ Rho-

desia are not sufficiently advanced
to operate trade unions, Efforts
have been made to form unions
from time to time, but they have
all ended in the same way—the
treasurer made off with the funds.
This system does not affect the
African’s right to strike.

Tm the rural areas and in: the
Native reserves, the African is
the speciak charge of the Native
Affairs Department.. The im-
portant thing about this depart-
ment is that it also provides an
outlet for the trained African, for
although the higher posts are at
present held by Europeans, [|
created them so that one day the
Africans would be able to have
an African director of Native
Agriculture, Native Education or
Native Engineering, It is to be an
outlet for native energy in the

him there are agricultural demon-
strators. These demonstrators are
Africans who have been trained
in up to date agricultural methods
and they advise the Africans on
improved methods. They are
having an uphill struggle and
even to-day, when a demonstrator
achieves spectacular results, the
older Africans still attribute his
— to the -practice of witch-
craft. yi f

In a multi-racial society, where
the majority are very backward
we do not consider that being
guided by the will of the majority
will lead to satisfactory Govern-
ment.

We shall work on the theory
that the definition of “democracy”
tends to regard the people
numerically as the majority or
the greatest number, but that it
misses out a very important fac-
tor. It does not mention anything
about the character or quality of
the people—the sort of men and
women who make up the people.

We hope to. go along these
lines and establish a democratic
form of Government consisting of
just, tolerant and _ reasonable
people. Numbers will come into
the picture, but the great factor
is the way the. people conduct
themselves, the kind of things
they. value, whether or not they
are fair, reasonable or liberal-
minded beings. We shall endeav-
our to make the test for the vote
on the line of civilisation and
culture and not on colour. In this
way we hope to carry the native
people with us, and we believe
that they will never resent our
presence,

I know that there are people in
Europe who think that the Euro-
pean should retire when the
African native is fit to manage
his own affairs. I believe, by
commonsense, there is no reason
why we should not remain in the
country in the friendliest fashion.

We are there to stay and you
will never get us out,

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1951





inated by two distinct trends during the past
few years-—a steady expansion of produc-
tion, and an increased demand for, and
consumption of, sugar in many parts of the
world. An annual production of 36 to 38
million metric tons within a few years can
be regarded as a possibility. Present indica-
tions are that the 1950-51 production (raw
sugar, and excluding the U.S.S.R.) is likely
to be 33.2 million metric tons, as compared
with 30.4 million metric tons in 1949-50, and
22 per cent above the pre-war average. At
the same time, a substantial demand for re-
fined sugar has developed in many areas in
which the pre-war consumption was very
low and consisted mainly of primitive types.
The consequence of these two developments
is that the world sugar industry is even more
vulnerable than before the war: its economic
stability depends increasingly on the main-
tenance of an expanding world economy and
on a solution of the international monetary
and financial disequilibrium,

Efforts to increase production are being
made by most sugar producing and exporting
countries, through increased sugar acreage, |)
the introduction of newer and better yield-
ing varieties, and the use of scientifie pro-
duction techniques. Extension of suger
acreage has taken place in the United States
and many European countries, notably Ger-
many and Austria. Western Germany plans
to double its 1949-50 output in a few years;
Holland hopes to attain self-sufficiency, and
further expansion is scheduled to take place
in many Latin American sugar-deficit coun-
tries. Factory developments have taken
place in Canada, Near Eastern countries and
in some territories of the Far East.

In Cuba there appears to have been much
more planting and replanting of new cane
varieties than has been generally recognized,
and the 1950-51 crop is likely to exceed that
of 1949-50. There has been slight recovery
of production in Java. The Dominican Re-
public hopes to increase. its exports from
400,000 tons in 1949-50 to 700,000 tons within
a few years. Haiti, Brazil, Czechoslovakia,
Mexico and Poland all plan increased pro-
duction for export.

British Commonwealth and colonial areas,
stimulated by the assurance until 1958 of an
annual market for a minimum of 2.4 million
metric tons in the United Kingdom, are now
making preparations for a great expansion
of production. Despite the many difficulties
in making so great an expansion, the pro-
gramme cannot be dismissed as_ entirely
visionary. Instead of providing a market
for about 900,000 tons of “free” supplies, as
the United Kingdom group of countries did
in 1949-50, they might thus eventually be-
come practically self-sufficient, unless con-
sumption were allowed to rise. Even in
the United States, both in Puerto Rico and
on the mainland, pressure is increasing to
raise the ceiling on home production estab-
lished by the Sugar Act of 1948. Puerto
Rico did in fact produce 200,000 tons above
its quota in 1949, which was sold to Germany
under the E.R.P.

GO AHEAD AND HUM

LONDON.
If you feel like humming a little ditty, then
go ahead and hum. It will make life seem
easier.
That is the advice of Dr. Frederick Parkes
Weber, famous English physician whose habit
of humming while working, caused him to
make a special study of the subject.

Publishing his findings in the British
“Medical Press” Dr. Parkes Weber concluded
it is not necessary to be “musical” to acquire
the humming habit. It can become almost an
instinct, he said, and most people who hum
build up a large repertoire of tunes.

“It is not so much the brain as the general
bodily condition at the time and the kind of
exercise or work that call for the humming
and select instinctively the appropriate melo-
dies,” said Dr. Parkes Weber.

“Tn fact, the body as well as the mind hums
and sings.”

House Inerease Governor’s Allowance

MR. ALLDER PROTESTS
GARDENS, AND FLAGS

Adjourned from its last meeting until 10 a.m, yesterday
because no weather forecaster was good enough to see that
Cricket would have been stalled, the House of Assembly
was off to an early start yesterday morning. Within an
hour and a half after business started, members were so to

speak, singing a legislative

First and main item being dis-
cussed Was a_ Resolution for
$10,334, so that Government could
pay the Governor’s servants, pay
lighting at Government House and
give the Governor a state car.
Leader of the House and Leader
of the Labour Party, Mr, G. H.
Adarss, expected a reduction
amendment from the Leader of the
Opposition, Mr. J. H. Wilkinson,
and said so in introducing the
resolution.

The matter had been already
discussed in private between the
parties, and so when the amend-

ment was moved, Mr. Adams
accepted them, and the party
symphony went on with Mr.

Mottley paying tribute to the way
in which the two parties had been
able to co-operate.

But the symphony came to an
abrupt end as soon as Mr. O. T.
Allder joined the debate. He dis-
agreed with the Resolution, saying
it was increasing the salary of the
Governor under the guise of
granting more pay for the servants.
He criticised the rates of pay
which the Governor’s servants got,
and expressed the view that too
much was spent on gardens and
flags among other things at Gov-
ernment House,

Mr. L. E. Smith, Chairman of
Committees intervened on more
than’ one occasion, asking Mr.
Allder to stick to the principle of
the Resolution, but Mr. Allder was
adamant in bringing out the points
he wanted to bring out. Mention
of flags at Government House
brought from the Chairman one of
his frequent bursts of humour.

“Stick to the point, Mr. Allder,”
he said. “There you are now all
on top of the flagstaff”. But Mr.
Allder was in no mood for humour
and said so.

He continued to speak amid
more interruptions from the
Chairman, Mr. Allder at one time
warning that “if this sort of thing
does not stop the people will have
to stop it.” He described the
resolution as sacrificing the
“masses for the classes.”

At the next interruption from
the Chairman, Mr. Mottley rose
to ask the latter to give Mr. Allder
more latitude lest it should be said
they were stifling debate on the
Resolution, and here a brief respite
was gained when Mr. Adams took
opportunity to move that the
Committee report progress with
the Resolution and ask for leave
to sit again,

The House’ adjourned for
luncheon,
After the resumption the

atmosphere* was not so stormy,
although Mr. Allder continued to
speak, and other members, among
them Mr. Crawford, Mr. Mapp
and Mr. Miller. They found fault
with some aspects of the Resolu-
tion, and Mr. Adams accused Mr.
Mapp of making an electioneering
speech,

By the time that the Resolution
was about to be passed unani-
mously, the symphonic tone of the
debate was back aga'n, Mr. Adams
thanking the Opposition for their
help and support.

The Resolution was previously
for $10,334, but an amendment to
decrease domestic staff, lighting,
heat and fuel by $734 made by Mr.
J. H. Wilkinson was accepted. In
the Schedule, purchase of a motor
car was $7,200, but it was felt that
that sum was too high and the
House passed a token vote of $1
to agree to the principle of buying
the car. At a subsequent meeting
a smaller price for the purchase
of the car will be brought up.

Mr. Wilkinson and Mr, Mottley
of the Opposition agreed that the
Government should stand the ex-
penses of lighting, 75 per cent of
the salaries to domestic servants
and that a sort of state car should
be acquired for the Governor,

Mr, O. T. Allder expressed dis-
approval of what he called “in-
creasing the Governor’s salary”.
He criticised the salaries the serv-
ants at Government House were
getting over a long period, and
said that whoever was responsible
should be censured.

Addendum

The addendum stated that:

The Report of the Commissioner
appointed in 1947 to review and
make recommendations. upon the
structure of the Civil Service of
Barbados and the remuneration
and conditions of service of all
Government servants contains the
following recommendations (at
paragraphs 222 and 223) in re-
spect of the remuneration and
conditions of service of the Gov-

ernor : :

(a) that the duty allowance of the
Governor should be increased
from £500 to £1,000 per
annum;

(b

~~

that transport for the use of
the officer administering the
Government should be pur-
chased and maintained at the
public expense;

thaf some portion of the ex-

-

(ce

penses of the domestic staff
employed at Governmermt

House should be met from
public funds,

symphony.

3. The proposals are:—
(a) that g British make of car
suitable to the dignity of a
Governor should be purchased
and maintained by the state;
that the domestic staff at Gov-
ernment House should con-
unue to be employed as the
personal servants of the Gov-
ernor but that their salaries
and allowances should’ be
borne by the state;
that the expenses of light,
heat and fuel for Government
House should be met from
general revenue;
that the Governor should
make a contribution of 10%
of his salary of $14,400 per
annum to cover the propor-
tion of expenditure under (b)
and (c) which may reasonably
be accepted as meeting the
private and personal needs of
the Governor and his family;
(e) that the proposals in (b), (c)
and (d) should take retrospec—
tive effect from the Ist of
October, 1950.

4. The wages and allowances
of the domestic staff at present
amount to $84.69 per week and it is
now proposed to increase this
amount to $100.79 with effect from
the Ist January, 1951,

Mr. G. H,. Adams (L) made the
motion for the passing of the
Resolution and said that he was
well aware that a Resolution of
that sort was bound to come to the
minds of many Barbadians, in or
out of the House, with consterna—
tion perhaps, and certainly with
opposition. He was prepared,
however—and he thought that
people should endeavour to look
on the matter objectively and see
the Governor of Barbados as just
another Civil Servant—to suggest
that it was reasonable to accept
the proposals made by Commis—
sioner Adams with regards to the
rest of the Civil Service.

Anti-Govt. Attitude

It was no good their shutting
their eyes to the fact that for 300
years the average Barbadian had
been anti-Governor and anti-
Colonial Government, , It was a
good thing that the bulk of settlers
in this colony, although they were
doing it for selfish reasons, started
a fashion of watching the actions
of the Governor, of criticising him
and sending him to England for
trial. It was a very pour thing
in that it enabled Barbadians to
make it crystal clear that they
were prepared to have the ultimate
voice in the running of their own
affairs.

Such a manner had caused them
to reach the stage they had reach—
ed and to be at present, among
the colonies of the British Empire
from the point of view of Govern-
ment, easily the leading.

They could thank their prede-
cessors for having established the
fact that there are not to be dic-
tated to, generally speaking, in
the internal matters, But it was
possible to overdo the expression
of their sentiments.

A resolution of that sort was
not likely to be passed without
opposition or acrimonious debate.
He had hoped to save the neces-
sary embarrassment which such
a Resolution would be to the Gov-
ernor by having an informal con-
ference outside of the House so
that they would have no speech
inside the House, but he was
afraid that that was not to be.

It was nothing more than the
final implementation of Commis-
sioner Adams.

As far as the Governor was
concerned, he was always omitted
from any consideration of revis-
ion of salary. After the Mr.
Adams report, because of the
arguments constantly used on the
floor of the House, the lower
branches of the service were
attended to first.

Revision Passed

The House and the Other Place
finally passed the revision and in
that too the Governor was omitted.

He had had substantial help
from the Leader of the Opposi-
tion and the Senior Member for
the City who were appointed from
their party for an informal com-
mittee to discuss the matter. The
Junior member for St. James had
made suggestions as to what his
party would be willing to accept,
and he felt that it would be but
commonsense to accept those
suggestions

The Govérnor should contribute
from the salary something towards
what could be said to be the per-
sonal servants of himself and his
family. Since he would have to
employ several more servants than
a normal man would empldy, the
state should pay for those Servants.

There was computed to the sum

Mr, Alider said that he would

he was about to divulge to the
House that had been told him at
Government House.

Mr. Adams said that the hon-
ourable member had been saying
that when the Governor was
appointed he must have been told
“so and so.”

On that particular point the
honourable member had been told
at Government House that nothin
that had been said to him shoul
be repeated outside Government
House.

Mr. Allder replied and said that
any normal man would know that
before an officer was accepted to
serve in this or any other country
he would have to be told of the
conditions. He was about to say
that His Excellency must. have
been tald about the conditions he
would meet when he accepted the

That was not fair or honest.
They were doing nothing but
practising a lot of politics which
only suited the classes at the ex-
pense of the masses, They were
extending sympathy to. people
who were capable of taking care
cf themselves at the expense of
the helpless.

As Mr. Allder went on, the
Chairman again reminded him that
he was straying from the point
and that he could not allow him
to go on doing this,

Mr. E, D. Mottley appealed to
the Chairman to allow the hon-
ourable member every opportunity
to discuss the matter, It was true
he said, that the Opposition had
reached agreement with the other
side on this matter, but if the hon-
ourable member felt that he
should oppose the Measure he
was entitled to his point of view.
Of course he did not think that
he should divulge anything he had
been told in confidence, That, he
considered, would be indecent,

Mr. Adams then asked to report
progress with leave to sit again
and the House adjourned for
lunch,

Mottley seconded
motion, but Mr.
amended it by
reducing the figure for the car

that the Government would pay

Col, Treasurer’s
Amendment
Bill Passed

THE House of Assembly yester-
day passed with slight amend-
ments, a Bill to consolidate and
amend the Acts of the island re-
lating to the Colonial Treasurer.

A motion to postpone the Bill
was defeated.

Mr. Adams (L) said that the
bill had met with the approval of
the House. The Auditor General
was really the watch dog of the
money of this colony, he said, and
that bill was to bring that office -
up-to-date by giving to the holder
of the office those functions which
would enable him to make proper
checking of functions of that office.

He said that it was not the in-
tention of the Government to
change the audit system, In effect,
therefore, there would still be
some other department to do
some rash spending and then put
it down to incidentals. The House
would then find itself having to
pane supplementary estimates, he
said,

He said that the bill was simply
following the Adams Recommen-
dations.

Mr. Mottley said that he would
support the Bill because he felt
that if they were moving out they
had to come into line with the " :
system of administration in big Piss
countries,

Pre-Audit System

But he wanted to be sure that
the pre-audit system would be
retained, If that system was not
to be retained, he would oppose
the Bill. There were one or two
points he wanted to make in re-
spect to the filling of the Heads
of the Departments of this coun-
try whirh was being yiewed hv
the Civil: Service an@ the general
public with much apprenension

For instance, it was observed
that the Governor had recently
appointed a deputy Income Tax
Commissioner, a deputy Auditor
General, a deputy Harbour Master
and a deputy Controller of Cus-
toms. He would say at the out-
set that there were certain special-
ists’ posts in Barbados which he
felt should still be held by im-
ported officials, but they were!
others which local people» who 4
possessed the ability, experience
and integrity could fill, He hoped
that the deputies were not mere
sobs and displaced persons would
not be brought in to be made
heads of departments.

If that were so, there would be
a big row about it. He knew that
members of the Government in
that Chamber would say it was
partly a governor's prerogative to
make these appointments, but he
wanted to inform them that they
still had a voice in expressing to
the Head of the Administration
their views as to the appointment
of local people.

No Displaced Englishman

He hoped his fall on deaf ears and that he
would see every effort made to
appoint local people to the head
of the various offices and not
bring in displaced Englishmen or
other people.

He had expressed his view in
dealing with the Adams recom-
mendation that he viewed with
suspicion some of the suggestions
and recommendations where heads
of departments were concerned,
He hoped the Governor would take
it that that criticism had come
from one who was hearing and
seeing things.

Mr, Gill (E) said that what
was worrying him about the pro-
posed Bill before the House was
the fact that the Accountant Gen- |
eral was receiving and ae

out funds from the Public Treas-
ury, and that he was the chief
accountant. He (Mr, Gill) would |
like to know who would be check-
ing his accounts and would be
able to make a report on it,

He knew that in Trinidad
there was an Accountant General,
but his accounts were audited by
an auditor appointed from the
Colonial Office.

With regards to section two, he
observed that by inadvertence or
design the words “with the
approval and consent of the Gen-
eral Assembly” had been omitted.
He thought that if the House was
the keeper of the public purse,
it should have a voice in dealing
with the money to be deposited by
the Accountant General and not
divest itself of its present power
and the Colonial Treasurer's Act
of 1891 in favour of the Executive
Committee.

A Figurehead

He felt that the House had
already given away a lot of its
power and he did not think it was
desirable or advisable to continue
doing so since ultimately the
House would only become a figure.

He was in agreement with the
increase for the Governor and was

to servants. He was told what those satisfied that the officer admin-

rates were and had paid his
servants accordingly and since he
had been here he had also in-
creased them,

It was up to the Governor to say
what he was going to pay his
servants and not for them as they
were not laying down rates for
Government servants.

He said that if he were so rude

of the House how much he was

in the Resolution, there was

the understanding that the Cov

istering the Government should be
given a State car if the idea was
to buy the best in the world.

He said that he was sorry about
the question of wages for the
servants as he felt that those
figures indicated in the Resolution
might induce the rich to use them
as a basis on which to pay their
servants.

Mr. W. A. Crawford (C) said
the Resolution was a matter which
should be viewed as dispassionate

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



Government House is
ive

Mr. Mapp said that one of the
reasons why the Opposition was
with the Government that day
was because it had been said that
the colony could not bear any
more taxation and therefore :t
was assumed that although they
(the Government) might haye
been paying the Head of the Ad-
ministration more money, they
might not have been attending .to
cther servants of this colony pro-
perly. He said that the civil ser-
ents in the lcwer ranks were
Missatisfied, 2%

N’.. Adams (L) said that he re-
pretted very much to say that he
had not heard so great criticism

dealt cut to the Government as
that which he heard from the
Hcnourable Junicr Member for
St. Thomas.

He said that that Honourable
Member could not have been more
wrong than to have stated some-
thing along ce lines that “the
Gevernment was doing something
wrong to civil servants”.

Mr. Mapp (L) said that he had
rot given such an impression.

Mr. Adams said that the Hon-
curable Junior Member for St.
Thomas had said that there was
dissatisfaction in the lower ranks.
If that member were not accus-
tomed speaking without thinking,
he would not have made such a
statement,

He said that the Government
had brought in cost of living al-
lowance and other considerations
for civil servants and had left
out the Governor, The Govern-
ment had seen to the lower ranks
ef the civil service first and had
then turned to the Governor,
There was no reason for the re-
marks made by the Honourable
Member in connection with tne
Civil Service.

Devaluation Irrelevant

Mr. Adams said that devalua-
tion was-absolutely nothing to do
with the matter, Devaluation or
no devaluation, he said, the Gov-
‘ernor would have been left to be
dealt with after the other civil
servants, the same way as he had
been then,

The Honourable Member, Mr.
Adams said, when he made a
speech of that sort, was damaging
the Government in the way that
no member of the Opposition had
ever done. Such a speech was
putting it in the hands of the
other side to say that one of “their
own men” had said that the Gov-
ernment was faulty in that re-
spect, “A fine speech for the Op-
position”, Mr. Adams said.

Mr. Adams replying to the Hon-
St.

curable Junor Member for
Philip, said that he chicse that day

Four UK Ports:
Disorganised

LONDON, Feb. 20.

Industrial unrest spread in
Britain today, disorganised four
key ports and slowed movement
of freight on railways. In London,
Glasgow, Manchester and Birken-
head, over 18,000 dockers staged
a jone-day strike timed to coin-
cide with the appearance in a}
London Court of seven dock}
workers who are charged with!
inciting dockers to strike illegally. |
‘The case was adjourned until next |
Tuesday and the strikers voted to|
return to work to-morrow and >;
come out again when the seven!
yeaders reappear before the}
Court. On the railways more men !
decided today to begin go-slow |
tactics or to stage token strikes |
next week-end,-—Reuter.

Condemned Nazis'
Sent Back To =a

LANDSBERG, Bavaria, Feb. 20.

Seven condemned Nazi war
criminals in Landsberg prison
were to-day back in the cells they
left last month, when they were
moved ready for execution, and
seven freshly dug grave: e
prison cemetery had pean nttea
in again. ,

The men were allowed to sew
on to their red jackets buttons
removed earlier as a_ security
precaution a West German news
agency reported. The reason is
that application for a writ of
Habeas Corpus on their behalf is
pending in Washington.

Yesterday, relatives of the con-
demned men were told they could
visit them every Monday and
Friday. Last Tuesday had origin-
ally been fixed as the last day for
visits,

Defence lawyers are to send
another appeal to John McCloy,
American High Commissioner in
Germany, it was said.

ROME, Feb. 20.

Giancarlo Matteoti, Parliamentary Deputy of the Commu-

Cominform Italian Workers’ Movement the

newspaper

Giornale D’Italia reported today.

The paper said Matteoti son

—Reuter.

In a speech at Fratta Polesine
near Kovigo, Matteoti was re-
ported to have said: “The Com-
munists call Cucchi, and Magnani
traitors. That is a grave error
because the two deputies are in-
tellectuals fighters.

It is not a question of betrayal,
but of a courageous crisis of con-
science which is in process of
determining a national politicai
crisis”.

Matteoti was last week. sus-
pended from all party actvity fo:
six months. His book “Capitalism
and Communism” was condemned
as a “complete antithesis of the

doctrine policy and traditions of |

the party”.
The parwy executive said the
book was “based on informaticn

taken from sources of stale anti-
Communist propaganda”.

If Matteoti’s words at Fratta
Polesine are confirmed, he will be
the first Parliamentary deputy of
the extreme left wing openly to
support Cucchi and Magnani.

London Express Service.

“A man with a mink farm
wanted a blue mink on his tie;
the owner of a taxicab fleet
wanted pictures of his cabs; a
tobacco firm ordered ties illustrat-
ing their own cigarettes; a
organisation wanted ties orna-
mented with bottles of soft drinks;
a milkman wanted a tie showing
a bottle of milk.”

Jokes Popular

Joke ties (at 10s. each) are
popular. One of Miss Lyons’s
products shows a horse standing
by a bookmaker’s stand placing a
bet. Another shows a drunken
man clinging to a lamppost.

It costs £3 to have a photo-
graph wife, husband, girl
friend, or dog copied in colours
on a tie. Demand is heavy.

WEDNESDAY,

British Manufacturers Are: ©
Anxious To Be On Cordial Ge:

FEBRUARY 21,

1951

Terms With West Indies

Barbados has always been

a very good market for the

United Kingdom and British manufacturers are very
anxious to maintain their cordial relationships Mr. A. R.
Starck, O.B.E., United Kingdom Trade Commissioner in
the British West Indies with headquarters in Trinidad told



the Advocate yesterday.

Engineers Expect
ToRepair‘Gopinsay’
By Thursday

Engineers working on _ the
damaged boiler of the Copinsay,
which still occupies her berth
alongside the Pier Head, are push-
ing ahead to complete repairs by
Thursday.

Captain Bodden told the
Advocate yesterday that he had
high hopes of the Royal Innis-
killing Fusiliers leaving by his
ship for St. Lucia on Thursday.
They might however have to spend
another day or two in Barbados, he
said.

The blown boiler tubes, which
caused the delay at Barbados, have
been taken out and new ones are
to replace them. The engineers
had no difficulty in getting the
tubes as they had brought along
some with them on the ship.

For the past three days when the
tubes were blown, the C y
had to depend on shore batteries
for electricity. No current could
be got from the ship’s batteries
with the boiler not working.

After a short stay ip St. Lucia,
the Copinsay will take the Fusi-
liers back to Jamaica where they
will be stationed until leaving for
England sometime in March,

The Copinsay will then resume
her normal duties as a troop and
cargo transport for the Royal
Army Service Corps of Jamaica.

Her crew of 18 are from the
Cayman Islands and Jamaiea,
They are civil employees of the
War Department, attached to the
R.A.S.C.. Few of them are ex-
servicemen.

Taking a tour with them is
Captain George Ansell, Super-
intendent of the R.A.S.C. fleet
in Jamaica.

Members of the crew say that
they enjoy working in the service
and, especially, on the Cepinsay.
They find the conditions of the

work4 satisfactory — neither too
easy hor too hard,
Captain Bodden said that he

thought the reception given the
officers and company of the Fusil-
jers and also the members of his
ship since they were here was the
best they got throughout the tour.

He was much impressed with
the “clean look” of the harbour
and the surroundings which, in his
opinion, was 100 per cent better
than what he found at Trinidad or
Jamaica.



Stole Cocoanuts

_ SENTENCE of three months’
imprisonment with hard labour
was passed on 32-year-old Milton
Farrell of Goodland, St. Michael
by His Worship Mr. H, A. Talma,
Police Magistrate of District “A”
yesterday.

Farrell was found guilty of the
larceny of cocoanuts valued at 2/-
and the property of Colin Cheese-
man of Lands Ends, St, Michael
on January 22,

Colin Cheeseman said that on
January 22, while he was walking
around his ground he saw Farreli
in one of his cocoanut trees.
Farrell on seeing him came down
and gin with eight cocoanuts in
his hand. He ran after him and
later reported the matter to the
Police,

Later the same day Farrell was
arrested by Police Constable
Clarke of the C.1.D.

Seibert Waldron—keeper of the
criminal records—told the court
that Farrell has eight previous
convictions for larceny.

world follow this simple, inexpen-
beauty care;

Mr. Starck is in Barbados on
one of his usual visits to renew
contacts with various
houses, to look into commercial
conditions generally and to see
what he can do to help local trad-
ers in their desire to buy goods
from the United Kingdom.

He said that in the last few
months, it had become increasing-
ly difficult to get supplies from
Britain because of the call for re-
armament, In certain instances,
raw materials were almost unob-
tainable by British manufacturers
because of stock piling in various
parts of the world. That had had
the effect of forcing the prices of
raw materials and of course, had
been reflected in the cost of the
manufactured articles,

In the case of Britain, it was a
fact that the increase in the cost
of manufactured goods exported,
was very much below the prices
which the United Kingdom manu-
facturers had to pay for import-
ing raw materials. The British
manufacturer was fully conscious
of the competition he would have
to meet in the future and it was
not his desire to force up prices,
but to maintain them at the low-
est possible level.

Remove Restrictions

On the question of the dollar
Liberalisation Plan, he said that
it was a fact that both Canada
and the United States had shown
full understanding of the difficul-
ties which had faeed Great Brit-
ain and the rest of the sterling
area during the past few years. A
responsible people in North
America had done their best to
face the situation, and had not
been critical of the drastic steps
which it was necessary to take in
order to conserve dollars, It was
therefore a matter of great satis-
faction to responsible opinion in
the United Kingdom when it was
possible to reach an agreement
last year in the dollar Liberalisa-
tion Plan, and no one was more
pleased than the people in Britain
that it had been possible to relax
the very severe restrictions which
had been in force.

“Competition is a healthy thing
at all times” Mr, Starck said and
no one wanted controls for the
sake of having them. It was hoped
that it would be possible in due
course to remove restrictions en-
tirely.

As he saw things at the moment,
he was afraid that controls in
some form were going to be with
them for a long time.’ Neverthe-
less, even a slight modification
would bring about competition
which, it was hoped, would be of
benefit to the consumer.

High Fares

Asked whether he had anything
to say with regard to the shipping
position between the United King-
dom and the West Indies, Mr.
Starck said that it was a matter
which was causing concern in all
parts of the West Indies and the
United Kingdom,

So far as freight was concerned,
the position was not very serious,
although it was far short of being
perfect, but there was a lot which
ought to be done to satisfy the
demand for passenger traffic, The
big difficulty as he saw it, was the
high cost of ship building, and
unless fares were set at an ex-
tremely high figure or some form
of subsidisation was given, there
was not much inducement for
owners to lay down new passen-
ger vessels.

He was very pleased to hear
that the sugar crop of Barbados
was estimated to’ be a record one
and he hoped the unseasonal rains
of the last few days would not
continue and that the crop would
come up to expectations.

Shark’s Liver At
U.S. $571 Per Ton

A NEW Company has recently
been formed in the Iles du Salut,
French Guiana, whose main activi-
ties will be shark-fishing and the
processing and export of coconuts.
This enterprise was launched
within the framework of the
economic development plan of
French Guiana,

At the present time the com-
pany is in a position to export
shark livers giving 5,000 interna-
tional units of vitamin A per
gramme of liver, at a price of
$571 U.S., per ton f.o.b., and dried
shark fins at $2,286 U.S., per ton
f.o.b. It can also export decorti-
cated coconuts of an average
weight of 750 grammes priced at
2.57 cents U.S., per unit f.0.b.,
sacks for coconuts to be supplied
by the buyer.

The company is also seeking a
contract with manufacturers of
fish meal, It is capable of supply-
ing 50,000 kilos of fresh fish
monthly.

In addition, this new French

Guiana company can _ supply

SOIL LOSS

WITH the unusual and heavy rains dur-
ing the last two weeks, there has been
much flooding and in some instances con-
siderable erosion has taken place in many
districts.

Some years ago the Government in an
attempt to reduce unemployment in this
island, allocated funds for the planting of
trees at Haggatts and along the Eastern
Coast. This is one form of preventing soil
erosion and the other is contour cultivation
as strongly advocated by Mr. Halcrow
former Deputy Director of Agriculture. It
has been’extensively practised in some dis-
tricts.

In an island, almost purely agricultural,
it is imperative that every effort be made
to prevent soil erosion. During the last
few days the heavy rains washed away
several acres of canes and other crops but
it is noticeable that in those areas where
contour cultivation had been practised the
loss was considerably less than in others.
It is therefore necessary that the type of
cultivation which would prevent erosion
should be encouraged throughout the is-
land wherever there is sloping land.

At Mt. Wilton plantation, an area where
erosion is common, it has been proved that
where trees have been planted erosion has
been stopped. This method has proved suc-
cessful in places where the slope in the land
is really steep. In other places contour cul-
tivation can do much to conserve the top
soil.

It would be well for cultivators of large
and small plots to remember that the
Department of Agriculture is maintained
for disseminating information on such
things as the agricuiturists need and the
officers of that Department are always
ready and willing to be of service to them.
Such advice and guidance should not only
be sought in times of stress or unusual
happenings as at present.

The prevention of soil erosion is a matter
which vitally affects the economy of thou-
sands of people. It was pointed out in a
public lecture a few years ago that the
amount of damage done by soil erosion is
not fully estimated until some time has
elapsed.

Home For Dogs

PUBLIC notices by the Commissioner of
Police:and various Parochial Treasurers
have been warning dog owners that this is
the month of February and so the statu-
tory period for the payment of dog licenses,

The result has been that within the last
. few weeks several emaciated dogs can be
seen wandering about the streets, because
the owners rather than pay the tax, have
chased them from their homes. There is
still on the Order Paper of the House of
Assembly a bill to amend the Dog License
Act and many people are of opinion that as
the tax on dogs was instituted at a time
when the revenue of this island was very
low and it was necessary to tap every
source for funds, it could now be repealed.
The opposite result might of course ensue
and even greater numbers of thin stray
dogs abound.

While the act is in force however-it is
obligatory to pay the tax and many people
would rather commit an act of cruelty than
pay the five shillings.

The answer to the prevention of this
form of cruelty would be the erection of a
home for dogs, such as there is at Batter-
sea. Wher'these animals stray or are un-
wanted they are taken to the home where
they are cared for until such time as peo-
ple who would have pets take them to pri-
vate homes. The financial condition of the
local branch of the S.P.C.A. is not such as
to make such a venture possible but some-
thing could in the meantime be done to
prevent the continuance of a cruel method
of chasing dogs from homes and leave them
to destroy people’s poultry and small stock
when they seek to satisfy the pangs of
hunger.

SEMPER AUXILIO

(J. C. VINTER: 1919-1936)

BARBADOS ADVOCATE

When Sirikes Fold Up...When -Mass Demonstrations’ Fall Flat

Are Stalin’s Men
Shamming?

ROME,

HERE in Rome LI. have been
listening to the anxious talk of
Intelligence men puzzling over
Communist failures in Italy, and
asking:—

“Are they shamming? Are the
Communists deliberately pulling
‘their punches to lead us into an
under-estimation of their strength?
Or are they finished as a revolu-
tionary force? Can we dismiss the
Red Fifth Column as a bogey?”

I heard the same bewildered
talk in Korea six months ago,
when vast stores of ammunition
were stacked —- unguarded —-
between giant petrol tanks at
Pusan.

Although Communists, hundreds
of them, had filtered into the
dock area, there was no attempt
at sabotage.

Why? The American Intelli-
gence officers, who finalWy per-
suaded the Koreans to supply
guards, were baffled.

This time I am more anxious
to solve the problem, For I have
spent the past weeks travelling
across Europe trying to find out
what the Communists are up to.

I wanted to find out to what
extent they have penetrated the
economic and administrative
machines, how far Moscow can
rely on them to form an effective
Fifth Column,

In France I found that the
Communist paper Humanite
reported that 50,000 demonstra-
tors “made Eisenhower fear the
wrath of Paris.” 2

I was there, I saw only a few

men throwing handbills and
shouting: “Home, Eisenhower.”
And No Pay

HERE in Italy, too, as in France,
the attempts of the Communist-
controlled trades unions to organ-
ise anti-Eisenhower strikes or
mass demonstrations of workers
have failed.

In one place only was the strike
order obeyed—-in the great State-
owned shipbuilding yard at La
Spezia. Out of 12,000 men
employed there, 3,000 struck.

When they reported for work
the following day, they were
instantly dismissed. After 12 days
of unemployment without pay
they were allowed back; all that
is, except the ringleaders.

The importance is in that
neither the party nor the union
has attempted to take the slight-
est action in reprisal or in
defence of the penalised strikers.

What is more, both in France
and in Italy the Communist cam-
paign calling on dockers and
transport workers to boycott the
import of American armamertts
has been a fiasco,

In France the attempts of the
Communists to call strikes in pro-
test against German re-armament
brought no success.

It’s No Sham

THE main reason why some
experts are puzzled by what they
consider the deliberate passivity
of the Communists is, that the
find it difficult to reconcile wit
reports they have had of con-
tinued Communist efforts to
build up militia organisations in
France and Italy.

“If these militia groups are as

better” is the argument I have
heard put forward.

In_ Italy the militia—based as

in France on Communist youth

organisations and former resis-

tance vcterans—according to some
estimates, has 70,000 members.

Until recently they were plenti-

279 =sub-
1,800 automatic
6,000 carbines, 26 radio
transmitters, 700 tons of explo-
sives.

But to-day the men who have
trained to use this armament do
nothing. Their comrades in
France are equally quiet. A
sham? A trick? I don’t think so.

Three factors have brought
about the new situation, which in
my view makes a_ considerable
change in the military defence of
Western Europe; —

1 THE EMERGENCE, both in
France and in Italy, of powerful
and effective trades unions which
repudiate the Communist Party,
protect non-Communist workers
defying shop stewards against
Communist reprisals. AND nego-
tiate wage agreements.

2 THE IMPATIENCE of work-
ers at-losing pay by being called
out on strike for political causes
dictated by Moscow.

And they do lose pay when they
strike now. For the Communtst
shop stewards can no longer
guarantee pay packets as they
could only two years ago in both
France and Italy.

Then, even if a man _ stayed
away from work four days «4
week, either for a strike or to do
party jobs, the’ unions would force
the employer to pay out if a man
turned up on the fifth day.

3 THE ANTI-STALINIST
rebellion of an increasingly large
number of young Communists,
especially in Italy, who joined the
party during the war’ in order to
fight for Italy against the. Ger—
mans,

Now they follow the example
of Yugoslavia’s Marshal Tito ia
repudiating Moscow's insistence
on unquestioning subordination of
all national interests to those of
the Kremlin.

High-ups Go

THE latest Italian rebels are
two high-up Communist Deputies
Cucchi and Magnani. They were
the chiefs of the Commun’st
Party in its North Italian streng-
hold of Emilia Province where
67,000 out of 390,000° inhabitants
are party members.

The immediate pretext for
their resignation from the party
was their rebellious declaration.
“In the event of war, every
Italian must defend the sacred
soil of the Patherland against
whatever Powers may be the
aggressor.”

I spoke with some of Cucchi’s
and Magnani’s supporters in their
Rome headquarters. They seemed
confident that, they would be able
to split the Communist Party wide
open.

dumps.

machine guns,



They told me; “We have many
high-up. sympathisers who are
still in the party. We are in touch
with them, despite the Communist
secret po: oo.” *

Yes, I am convinced that unless
Soviet troops actually set foot on
the soil of Italy or France, we can
safely rule out any kind of mass
rising by the Communists and
their followers or the general
strikes aimed at paralysing the
country,

But I am equally certain that
the Moscow Politburo and_ its
agents in the Cominform have
realised this. They have adapted
their planning accordingly.

In their propaganda they will
attempt to recover the lost sym-
pathies of the French and Italiahs
by offering these war-weary peo-
ples the possibility of keeping neu-
tral in any conflict.

While I was in Paris a piece of
intelligence came through saying
that in the event of war the Rus-
sians intended to by-pass a neu-
tralised France. They would
blitz their way with airborne
landings into what they censid-
ered the main American bridge-
heads: Britain and Spain.

Â¥o my amazement, I could see
that this prospect—which if suc-
cessful would, of course, inevi-
tably entail the subjection of
France to Russia and its bombard-
ment by. the Americans—was
greeted with eager interest,
amounting almost to satisfaction,
even by French high-ups.

And An Echo

In Rome, I sat for half an hour
in the :ommittee room of the Na-
tfonal Assembly with a Demo-
Christian anti-Communist M.P.,
Igino Giordani, while he explained
to me exactly why he was against
Italy taking any part in rearma-
ment for war.

“Tf the Russians mean to make
war they will not wait for us to
rearm they will attack us right
way.

“We would do much better to
fight Communism by spending
cn social services money we are
wasting on usélés$ rearmament.”

His last. phras¢ was a verbatim
echo of what a young Communist
worker had said to me only a
few hours earlier in a suburban
district headquarters of the Com-
munist Party.

When a bit later, I suggested
to an Italian elder statesman
that Italy’s role in the event of
urmed conflict might be benevo-

lent, neutrality he smiled and
said:—
“Maybe, But one should never

say .so. There are too many
neutralists around in Italy and
in France, We must not encourage
these cowards,”

New Methods...

Meanwhile to attain their object
of paralysing the economic, in-
dustrial transport, and mobilisa-
tion mechanisms of France and
lialy in the event of war with
Western Euro: the _Cominform
will use methods unconnected with
mass strikes and mass demon-
strations.

What I have discovered about
this, the secret underground side
cf the Communist plan, I will tell
you in my next despatch, ,

You Will Never Get Us Out

“THE native population is
increasing rapidly; in 1890 it was
estimated to be half a million;
to-day it is two millions. The
races do not want to mix.

“What are we doing to improve
race relations? One European who
is rude and tactless to the African
does more to produce bad feeling
than anything else, Europeans
must always be on their best
behaviour. The key to our. policy,
in contradiction to the colonial
policy of Britain is that we place
economic advance and provision
of social amenities a long way
ahead of political advancement.
Economically and socially, ad-
vancement can be speeded up in
proportion to the funds you have
available to spend, but political
advancement can only come
slowly; it is not a flower that
takes kindly to hot-house treat-
ment.

We believe that the native is
entitled to lead a normal family
life in towns. A few years ago
an Act was passed compelling the
employer of an African in the
European area to supply proper
quarters, or, failing these, to pay
the rent for quarters, By that
means decent conditions are pro-
vided, where the men can live a
good family life. The rents paid
are economic and they are paid
by the employer. Provision is_
made for the native-gradually to
take over paying the rent as his
wages increase. I think we shall
never do much with these people
until we have established a native
middle-class; after all, they were
the background of this country
at one time, There are other pro-
visions to safeguard the African,
but I have said enough to indi-
cate to you that we are doing a
good deal to ensure that he does
have a home when he comes to
the European town, and that we
do appreciate that the African 1s

lJessly behind. in the construction
of houses.

In the European towns we have
industrial councils consisting of
employers and’ employees, who
fix conditions of service for
skilled and semi-skilled trades.
There is no legal colour bar in
the trades, but in practice the
native is not worth the wages
fixed. It has taken many years
to evolve the trade union move-
ment in Britain, This movement,
which is much vaunted by the
British Colonial Office at present,
may be found to be quite unsuit-
able for Africans when it is put

into practice; on the other
hand, it may _ be _ suitable.
Africans in Southern’ Rho-

desia are not sufficiently advanced
to operate trade unions, Efforts
have been made to form unions
from time to time, but they have
all ended in the same way—the
treasurer made off with the funds.
This system does not affect the
African’s right to strike.

Tm the rural areas and in: the
Native reserves, the African is
the speciak charge of the Native
Affairs Department.. The im-
portant thing about this depart-
ment is that it also provides an
outlet for the trained African, for
although the higher posts are at
present held by Europeans, [|
created them so that one day the
Africans would be able to have
an African director of Native
Agriculture, Native Education or
Native Engineering, It is to be an
outlet for native energy in the

him there are agricultural demon-
strators. These demonstrators are
Africans who have been trained
in up to date agricultural methods
and they advise the Africans on
improved methods. They are
having an uphill struggle and
even to-day, when a demonstrator
achieves spectacular results, the
older Africans still attribute his
— to the -practice of witch-
craft. yi f

In a multi-racial society, where
the majority are very backward
we do not consider that being
guided by the will of the majority
will lead to satisfactory Govern-
ment.

We shall work on the theory
that the definition of “democracy”
tends to regard the people
numerically as the majority or
the greatest number, but that it
misses out a very important fac-
tor. It does not mention anything
about the character or quality of
the people—the sort of men and
women who make up the people.

We hope to. go along these
lines and establish a democratic
form of Government consisting of
just, tolerant and _ reasonable
people. Numbers will come into
the picture, but the great factor
is the way the. people conduct
themselves, the kind of things
they. value, whether or not they
are fair, reasonable or liberal-
minded beings. We shall endeav-
our to make the test for the vote
on the line of civilisation and
culture and not on colour. In this
way we hope to carry the native
people with us, and we believe
that they will never resent our
presence,

I know that there are people in
Europe who think that the Euro-
pean should retire when the
African native is fit to manage
his own affairs. I believe, by
commonsense, there is no reason
why we should not remain in the
country in the friendliest fashion.

We are there to stay and you
will never get us out,

Our Readers Say:



WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1951





inated by two distinct trends during the past
few years-—a steady expansion of produc-
tion, and an increased demand for, and
consumption of, sugar in many parts of the
world. An annual production of 36 to 38
million metric tons within a few years can
be regarded as a possibility. Present indica-
tions are that the 1950-51 production (raw
sugar, and excluding the U.S.S.R.) is likely
to be 33.2 million metric tons, as compared
with 30.4 million metric tons in 1949-50, and
22 per cent above the pre-war average. At
the same time, a substantial demand for re-
fined sugar has developed in many areas in
which the pre-war consumption was very
low and consisted mainly of primitive types.
The consequence of these two developments
is that the world sugar industry is even more
vulnerable than before the war: its economic
stability depends increasingly on the main-
tenance of an expanding world economy and
on a solution of the international monetary
and financial disequilibrium,

Efforts to increase production are being
made by most sugar producing and exporting
countries, through increased sugar acreage, |)
the introduction of newer and better yield-
ing varieties, and the use of scientifie pro-
duction techniques. Extension of suger
acreage has taken place in the United States
and many European countries, notably Ger-
many and Austria. Western Germany plans
to double its 1949-50 output in a few years;
Holland hopes to attain self-sufficiency, and
further expansion is scheduled to take place
in many Latin American sugar-deficit coun-
tries. Factory developments have taken
place in Canada, Near Eastern countries and
in some territories of the Far East.

In Cuba there appears to have been much
more planting and replanting of new cane
varieties than has been generally recognized,
and the 1950-51 crop is likely to exceed that
of 1949-50. There has been slight recovery
of production in Java. The Dominican Re-
public hopes to increase. its exports from
400,000 tons in 1949-50 to 700,000 tons within
a few years. Haiti, Brazil, Czechoslovakia,
Mexico and Poland all plan increased pro-
duction for export.

British Commonwealth and colonial areas,
stimulated by the assurance until 1958 of an
annual market for a minimum of 2.4 million
metric tons in the United Kingdom, are now
making preparations for a great expansion
of production. Despite the many difficulties
in making so great an expansion, the pro-
gramme cannot be dismissed as_ entirely
visionary. Instead of providing a market
for about 900,000 tons of “free” supplies, as
the United Kingdom group of countries did
in 1949-50, they might thus eventually be-
come practically self-sufficient, unless con-
sumption were allowed to rise. Even in
the United States, both in Puerto Rico and
on the mainland, pressure is increasing to
raise the ceiling on home production estab-
lished by the Sugar Act of 1948. Puerto
Rico did in fact produce 200,000 tons above
its quota in 1949, which was sold to Germany
under the E.R.P.

GO AHEAD AND HUM

LONDON.
If you feel like humming a little ditty, then
go ahead and hum. It will make life seem
easier.
That is the advice of Dr. Frederick Parkes
Weber, famous English physician whose habit
of humming while working, caused him to
make a special study of the subject.

Publishing his findings in the British
“Medical Press” Dr. Parkes Weber concluded
it is not necessary to be “musical” to acquire
the humming habit. It can become almost an
instinct, he said, and most people who hum
build up a large repertoire of tunes.

“It is not so much the brain as the general
bodily condition at the time and the kind of
exercise or work that call for the humming
and select instinctively the appropriate melo-
dies,” said Dr. Parkes Weber.

“Tn fact, the body as well as the mind hums
and sings.”

House Inerease Governor’s Allowance

MR. ALLDER PROTESTS
GARDENS, AND FLAGS

Adjourned from its last meeting until 10 a.m, yesterday
because no weather forecaster was good enough to see that
Cricket would have been stalled, the House of Assembly
was off to an early start yesterday morning. Within an
hour and a half after business started, members were so to

speak, singing a legislative

First and main item being dis-
cussed Was a_ Resolution for
$10,334, so that Government could
pay the Governor’s servants, pay
lighting at Government House and
give the Governor a state car.
Leader of the House and Leader
of the Labour Party, Mr, G. H.
Adarss, expected a reduction
amendment from the Leader of the
Opposition, Mr. J. H. Wilkinson,
and said so in introducing the
resolution.

The matter had been already
discussed in private between the
parties, and so when the amend-

ment was moved, Mr. Adams
accepted them, and the party
symphony went on with Mr.

Mottley paying tribute to the way
in which the two parties had been
able to co-operate.

But the symphony came to an
abrupt end as soon as Mr. O. T.
Allder joined the debate. He dis-
agreed with the Resolution, saying
it was increasing the salary of the
Governor under the guise of
granting more pay for the servants.
He criticised the rates of pay
which the Governor’s servants got,
and expressed the view that too
much was spent on gardens and
flags among other things at Gov-
ernment House,

Mr. L. E. Smith, Chairman of
Committees intervened on more
than’ one occasion, asking Mr.
Allder to stick to the principle of
the Resolution, but Mr. Allder was
adamant in bringing out the points
he wanted to bring out. Mention
of flags at Government House
brought from the Chairman one of
his frequent bursts of humour.

“Stick to the point, Mr. Allder,”
he said. “There you are now all
on top of the flagstaff”. But Mr.
Allder was in no mood for humour
and said so.

He continued to speak amid
more interruptions from the
Chairman, Mr. Allder at one time
warning that “if this sort of thing
does not stop the people will have
to stop it.” He described the
resolution as sacrificing the
“masses for the classes.”

At the next interruption from
the Chairman, Mr. Mottley rose
to ask the latter to give Mr. Allder
more latitude lest it should be said
they were stifling debate on the
Resolution, and here a brief respite
was gained when Mr. Adams took
opportunity to move that the
Committee report progress with
the Resolution and ask for leave
to sit again,

The House’ adjourned for
luncheon,
After the resumption the

atmosphere* was not so stormy,
although Mr. Allder continued to
speak, and other members, among
them Mr. Crawford, Mr. Mapp
and Mr. Miller. They found fault
with some aspects of the Resolu-
tion, and Mr. Adams accused Mr.
Mapp of making an electioneering
speech,

By the time that the Resolution
was about to be passed unani-
mously, the symphonic tone of the
debate was back aga'n, Mr. Adams
thanking the Opposition for their
help and support.

The Resolution was previously
for $10,334, but an amendment to
decrease domestic staff, lighting,
heat and fuel by $734 made by Mr.
J. H. Wilkinson was accepted. In
the Schedule, purchase of a motor
car was $7,200, but it was felt that
that sum was too high and the
House passed a token vote of $1
to agree to the principle of buying
the car. At a subsequent meeting
a smaller price for the purchase
of the car will be brought up.

Mr. Wilkinson and Mr, Mottley
of the Opposition agreed that the
Government should stand the ex-
penses of lighting, 75 per cent of
the salaries to domestic servants
and that a sort of state car should
be acquired for the Governor,

Mr, O. T. Allder expressed dis-
approval of what he called “in-
creasing the Governor’s salary”.
He criticised the salaries the serv-
ants at Government House were
getting over a long period, and
said that whoever was responsible
should be censured.

Addendum

The addendum stated that:

The Report of the Commissioner
appointed in 1947 to review and
make recommendations. upon the
structure of the Civil Service of
Barbados and the remuneration
and conditions of service of all
Government servants contains the
following recommendations (at
paragraphs 222 and 223) in re-
spect of the remuneration and
conditions of service of the Gov-

ernor : :

(a) that the duty allowance of the
Governor should be increased
from £500 to £1,000 per
annum;

(b

~~

that transport for the use of
the officer administering the
Government should be pur-
chased and maintained at the
public expense;

thaf some portion of the ex-

-

penses of the domestic staff
employed at Governmermt

House should be met from
public funds,

symphony.

3. The proposals are:—
(a) that g British make of car
suitable to the dignity of a
Governor should be purchased
and maintained by the state;
that the domestic staff at Gov-
ernment House should con-
unue to be employed as the
personal servants of the Gov-
ernor but that their salaries
and allowances should’ be
borne by the state;
that the expenses of light,
heat and fuel for Government
House should be met from
general revenue;
that the Governor should
make a contribution of 10%
of his salary of $14,400 per
annum to cover the propor-
tion of expenditure under (b)
and (c) which may reasonably
be accepted as meeting the
private and personal needs of
the Governor and his family;
(e) that the proposals in (b), (c)
and (d) should take retrospec—
tive effect from the Ist of
October, 1950.

4. The wages and allowances
of the domestic staff at present
amount to $84.69 per week and it is
now proposed to increase this
amount to $100.79 with effect from
the Ist January, 1951,

Mr. G. H,. Adams (L) made the
motion for the passing of the
Resolution and said that he was
well aware that a Resolution of
that sort was bound to come to the
minds of many Barbadians, in or
out of the House, with consterna—
tion perhaps, and certainly with
opposition. He was prepared,
however—and he thought that
people should endeavour to look
on the matter objectively and see
the Governor of Barbados as just
another Civil Servant—to suggest
that it was reasonable to accept
the proposals made by Commis—
sioner Adams with regards to the
rest of the Civil Service.

Anti-Govt. Attitude

It was no good their shutting
their eyes to the fact that for 300
years the average Barbadian had
been anti-Governor and anti-
Colonial Government, , It was a
good thing that the bulk of settlers
in this colony, although they were
doing it for selfish reasons, started
a fashion of watching the actions
of the Governor, of criticising him
and sending him to England for
trial. It was a very pour thing
in that it enabled Barbadians to
make it crystal clear that they
were prepared to have the ultimate
voice in the running of their own
affairs.

Such a manner had caused them
to reach the stage they had reach—
ed and to be at present, among
the colonies of the British Empire
from the point of view of Govern-
ment, easily the leading.

They could thank their prede-
cessors for having established the
fact that there are not to be dic-
tated to, generally speaking, in
the internal matters, But it was
possible to overdo the expression
of their sentiments.

A resolution of that sort was
not likely to be passed without
opposition or acrimonious debate.
He had hoped to save the neces-
sary embarrassment which such
a Resolution would be to the Gov-
ernor by having an informal con-
ference outside of the House so
that they would have no speech
inside the House, but he was
afraid that that was not to be.

It was nothing more than the
final implementation of Commis-
sioner Adams.

As far as the Governor was
concerned, he was always omitted
from any consideration of revis-
ion of salary. After the Mr.
Adams report, because of the
arguments constantly used on the
floor of the House, the lower
branches of the service were
attended to first.

Revision Passed

The House and the Other Place
finally passed the revision and in
that too the Governor was omitted.

He had had substantial help
from the Leader of the Opposi-
tion and the Senior Member for
the City who were appointed from
their party for an informal com-
mittee to discuss the matter. The
Junior member for St. James had
made suggestions as to what his
party would be willing to accept,
and he felt that it would be but
commonsense to accept those
suggestions

The Govérnor should contribute
from the salary something towards
what could be said to be the per-
sonal servants of himself and his
family. Since he would have to
employ several more servants than
a normal man would empldy, the
state should pay for those Servants.

Mr, Alider said that he would

he was about to divulge to the

Government House.

Mr. Adams said that the hon-

that when the Governor was
appointed he must have been told
“so and so.”

On that particular point the
honourable member had been told
at Government House that nothin
that had been said to him shoul

Mr. Allder replied and said that
any normal man would know that

conditions. He was about to say

They were doing nothing but
practising a lot of politics which
only suited the classes at the ex-

who were capable of taking care

As Mr. Allder went on, the
Chairman again reminded him that
he was straying from the point
and that he could not allow him
to go on doing this,

Mr. E, D. Mottley appealed to
the Chairman to allow the hon-
ourable member every opportunity
to discuss the matter, It was true
he said, that the Opposition had
reached agreement with the other
side on this matter, but if the hon-
ourable member felt that he
should oppose the Measure he
was entitled to his point of view.
Of course he did not think that
he should divulge anything he had
been told in confidence, That, he
considered, would be indecent,

Mr. Adams then asked to report
progress with leave to sit again
and the House adjourned for
lunch,

Mottley seconded

Col, Treasurer’s
Amendment
Bill Passed

THE House of Assembly yester-
day passed with slight amend-
ments, a Bill to consolidate and
amend the Acts of the island re-
lating to the Colonial Treasurer.

A motion to postpone the Bill
was defeated.

Mr. Adams (L) said that the
bill had met with the approval of
the House. The Auditor General
was really the watch dog of the
money of this colony, he said, and
that bill was to bring that office -
up-to-date by giving to the holder
of the office those functions which
would enable him to make proper
checking of functions of that office.

He said that it was not the in-
tention of the Government to
change the audit system, In effect,
therefore, there would still be
some other department to do
some rash spending and then put
it down to incidentals. The House
would then find itself having to
pane supplementary estimates, he
said,

He said that the bill was simply
following the Adams Recommen-
dations.

Mr. Mottley said that he would
support the Bill because he felt
that if they were moving out they
had to come into line with the " :
system of administration in big Piss
countries,

Pre-Audit System

But he wanted to be sure that
the pre-audit system would be
retained, If that system was not
to be retained, he would oppose
the Bill. There were one or two
points he wanted to make in re-
spect to the filling of the Heads
of the Departments of this coun-
try whirh was being yiewed hv
the Civil: Service an@ the general
public with much apprenension

For instance, it was observed
that the Governor had recently
appointed a deputy Income Tax
Commissioner, a deputy Auditor
General, a deputy Harbour Master
and a deputy Controller of Cus-
toms. He would say at the out-
set that there were certain special-
ists’ posts in Barbados which he
felt should still be held by im-
ported officials, but they were!
others which local people» who 4
possessed the ability, experience
and integrity could fill, He hoped
that the deputies were not mere
sobs and displaced persons would
not be brought in to be made
heads of departments.

If that were so, there would be
a big row about it. He knew that
members of the Government in
that Chamber would say it was
partly a governor's prerogative to
make these appointments, but he
wanted to inform them that they
still had a voice in expressing to
the Head of the Administration
their views as to the appointment
of local people.

No Displaced Englishman

He hoped his fall on deaf ears and that he
would see every effort made to
appoint local people to the head
of the various offices and not
bring in displaced Englishmen or
other people.

He had expressed his view in
dealing with the Adams recom-
mendation that he viewed with
suspicion some of the suggestions
and recommendations where heads
of departments were concerned,
He hoped the Governor would take
it that that criticism had come
from one who was hearing and
seeing things.

Mr, Gill (E) said that what
was worrying him about the pro-
posed Bill before the House was
the fact that the Accountant Gen- |
eral was receiving and ae

ury, and that he was the chief
accountant. He (Mr, Gill) would |
like to know who would be check-
ing his accounts and would be
able to make a report on it,

He knew that in Trinidad
there was an Accountant General,
but his accounts were audited by
an auditor appointed from the
Colonial Office.

With regards to section two, he
observed that by inadvertence or
design the words “with the
approval and consent of the Gen-
eral Assembly” had been omitted.
He thought that if the House was
the keeper of the public purse,
it should have a voice in dealing
with the money to be deposited by
the Accountant General and not
divest itself of its present power
and the Colonial Treasurer's Act
of 1891 in favour of the Executive
Committee.

A Figurehead

He felt that the House had
already given away a lot of its
power and he did not think it was
desirable or advisable to continue
doing so since ultimately the
House would only become a figure.

He was in agreement with the
increase for the Governor and was

to servants. He was told what those satisfied that the officer admin-

rates were and had paid his
servants accordingly and since he
had been here he had also in-
creased them,

It was up to the Governor to say
what he was going to pay his
servants and not for them as they
were not laying down rates for
Government servants.

He said that if he were so rude
as to ask any honourable member
of the House how much he was

paying hig servants or tell him
what. Bhould pay, the member
would.

in the Resolution, there was
specific amount for servants with
the understanding that the Cov

wages,

to

istering the Government should be
given a State car if the idea was
to buy the best in the world.

He said that he was sorry about
the question of wages for the
servants as he felt that those
figures indicated in the Resolution
might induce the rich to use them
as a basis on which to pay their
servants.

Mr. W. A. Crawford (C) said
the Resolution was a matter which
should be viewed as dispassionate

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



Government House is
ive

Mr. Mapp said that one of the
reasons why the Opposition was
with the Government that day
was because it had been said that
the colony could not bear any
more taxation and therefore :t
was assumed that although they
(the Government) might haye
been paying the Head of the Ad-
ministration more money, they
might not have been attending .to
cther servants of this colony pro-
perly. He said that the civil ser-
ents in the lcwer ranks were
Missatisfied, 2%

N’.. Adams (L) said that he re-
pretted very much to say that he
had not heard so great criticism

too expens

dealt cut to the Government as
that which he heard from the
Hcnourable Junicr Member for
St. Thomas.

He said that that Honourable
Member could not have been more
wrong than to have stated some-
thing along ce lines that “the
Gevernment was doing something
wrong to civil servants”.

Mr. Mapp (L) said that he had
rot given such an impression.

Mr. Adams said that the Hon-
curable Junior Member for St.
Thomas had said that there was
dissatisfaction in the lower ranks.
If that member were not accus-
tomed speaking without thinking,
he would not have made such a
statement,

He said that the Government
had brought in cost of living al-
lowance and other considerations
for civil servants and had left
out the Governor, The Govern-
ment had seen to the lower ranks
ef the civil service first and had
then turned to the Governor,
There was no reason for the re-
marks made by the Honourable
Member in connection with tne
Civil Service.

Devaluation Irrelevant

Mr. Adams said that devalua-
tion was-absolutely nothing to do
with the matter, Devaluation or
no devaluation, he said, the Gov-
‘ernor would have been left to be
dealt with after the other civil
servants, the same way as he had
been then,

The Honourable Member, Mr.
Adams said, when he made a
speech of that sort, was damaging
the Government in the way that
no member of the Opposition had
ever done. Such a speech was
putting it in the hands of the
other side to say that one of “their
own men” had said that the Gov-
ernment was faulty in that re-
spect, “A fine speech for the Op-
position”, Mr. Adams said.

Mr. Adams replying to the Hon-
St.

curable Junor Member for
Philip, said that he chicse that day

to snare at the members of the
support-
That mem-
was
the only member of the Heuse to
Government
should have sent down a Resolu-
tion to buy a seaside house and
furnish it for the Governor, and
he said that in the midst of the

Electors Association for
ing the Gevernment,
ber had forgotten that he

suggest that the

last war.

The Opposition had stated that
although they had not intended to
go the whole way with the sum
asked for, they were prepared to
support the principle of the resolu-
He wanted to thank them
for taking the matter in that light.
The resolution was then passed.

At tea when» play ended ami the time the West Indies
Provinces had made 276 for nine Selec*crs leave for Jamaica for

wickets. The first four wickets
to fall were due mainly to fine
bowling by Ray Dovey, off spinner,
Dovey finished the day with three

four for 89. Sonny Ramadhin,
West Indies spin bowler took two

I OSS WITH the unusual and heavy rains during the last two weeks, there has been much flooding and m some instances conrideral place in many Some years ago the Government in an attempt to reduce unemployment in this island, allotted funds for the planting of at Haggatts and along the Eastern Coast. TbJi : t pnvtnttng soil n and ',1K other is contour cultivation as tO ated by Mr. Holcrow former Deputy Director of Agriculture. It has bfl ;•' practised in some districts. In an island, almost purely agricultural. i i v effort be made to prevent soil erosion. During the last few days the heavy ratal washed away several acres of canes and other crops but it Is noticeable that in those areas where contour cultivation had been practised the loss was considerably less than in others, therefore necessary that the type of cultivation which would prevent erosion should be encouraged throughout the island wherever there is sloping land. At Mt. WUtOfl plantation, an area where erosion is common, it has been proved that where Ireli.ivr been planted erosion has been stopped This method has proved successful in places where the SIOJK.' in the land illy sleep In ntdel placet COtltOUT cultivation call do much to conserve the top soil. It would be well for cultivators of Urge and small plots to remember that the Department of Agriculture is maintained for disseminating information on such things as the agriculturists need and the officers of that Department are always ready and willing to be of service to them. Such advice and guidance should not only be sought in times of stress or unusual happenings as at present.

Ills last phras* was a verbatim echo of what a reung Communist vorker had said to me only a fiw hours earlier in a suburban d.strict headquarters of the Communlat Party. When a bit later, I suggested to an Italian elder statesman armed conflict might be benevolent, neutrality he smiled and said:— "Maybe. But one should never say so. There are too many ntutraUsta around in Italy and In France. We must not encourage l'.ese cowards." IIOIIMloi' lilies PUBLIC notices by the Commissioner of Polica and various I'arochial Treasurershave been warning do)> owners that this is the month of February and so the statutory period for the payment of dog licenses. The result has been that within the last few weeks several emaciated dogs can be seen wandering about the streets, because the owners rattier than pay the tax, have chased them from their homes. There is still im the Order Paper of the House of Assembly a bill to amend the Dog License Act and many people are of opinion that as the tax on dogs was instituted at a time when the revenue of this island was very low and it was necessary to tap every source for funds, it could now be repealed. The opposite result might of course ensue and even greater numbers of thin stray dogs abound. While the act is in force however it is obligatory to pay the tax and many people would rather commit an act of cruelty than pay the five shillings. The answer to the prevention of this form of cruelty would be the erection of a home for dogs, such as there is at I.uttersea. Whet*'these animals stray or are unwanted thcy are taken to the home where they are cared for until such time as people who would have pets take them to private homaa The flnancta] condition of the local branch of the S.P.C.A. is not such as to make such a venture possible but someuld in the meantime be done to nrevii.t tincontlnuanca of a cruel method of chasing dogs from homes and leave them to destroy people's poultry and small stock when they seek l<> satisfy the pangs of hunger.

Because of the influx the agricultural side and under win Outlook For Sugar FROM the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations comes the following statement on the world pcodaetloB md outlook for sugar. The world sugar economy has been domnatcd by two distinct trends during the past few years—a steady expansion of production, and an increased demand for, and consumption of, sugar in many part* of the world. An annual production of 36 to 38 million metric tons within a few years can be regarded as a possibility. Present indications are that the 1950-51 production (raw sugar, and excluding the US.S.R.) is likely to be 33.2 million metric tons, as compared with 30.4 million metric tons in 1949-50. and 22 per cent above the pre-war average. At the same time, a substantial demand for refined sugar has developed in many areas in which the pre-war consumption was very low and consisted mainly of primitive types. The consequence of these two developments is that the world sugar industry is even more vulnerable than before the war* its economic stability depends increasingly on the maintenance of an expanding world economy and on a solution of the international monetary and financial disequilibrium. Efforts to increase production are being made by most sugar producing and exporting countries, through increased sugar acreage, the introduction of newer and better yielding varieties, and the use of scientific production techniques. Extension of sugrr acreage has taken place in the United States and many European countries, notably Germany and Austria. Western Germany plan.. to double its 1949-50 output in a few years; Holland hopes to attain self-sufficiency, and further expansion is scheduled to take place in many Latin American sugar-deficit countries. Factory developments have taken place in Canada, Near Eastern countries and in some territories of the Far East. In Cuba there appears to have been much marc planting and replanting of new cane varieties than has been generally recognized, and the 1950-51 crop is likely to exceed that of 1949-50. There has been slight recovery of production in Java. The Dominican Republic hopes to increase its exports from 400.000 tons in 1949-50 to 700,000 tons within a few years. Haiti, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, Mexico and Poland all plan increased production for export. British Commonwealth and colonial areas. .stimulated by the assurance until 1958 of an annual market for n minimum of 2.4 million metric tons in the United Kingdom, are now making preparations for a great expansion of production. Despite the many difficulties in making so great an expansion, the programme cannot be dismissed as entirely visionary. Instead of providing a market for about 900,000 tons of "free" supplies, as the United Kingdom group of countries did in 1949-50, they might thus eventually become practically self-sufficient, unless consumption were allowed to rise. Even in the United States, both in Puerto Rico and on the mainland, pressure is increasing to raise the ceiling on home production established by the Sugar Act of 1948. Puerto Rico did in fact produce 200,000 tons above its quota in 1949. which was sold to Germany under the E.R.P. • FAO | World Outlook and Stale of rood and. Agrkultufat 1900. FAO : Commodlt* l^poru.

Electrical Department GO AHEAD AND HUM LONDON. If you feel like hummine a little ditty, then go ahead and hum. It will make life seem easier. That is the advice of Dr. Frederick Parkes Weber, famous English physician whose habit of humming while working, caused him to make a special study of the subject. Publishing his findings la the British "Medical Press" Dr. Parkes Weber concluded it is not necessary to be "musical" to acquire the humming habit. It can become almost an instinct, he said, and most people who hum build up a large repertoire of tunes. "It is not so much the brain as the general bodily condition at the time and the kind of exercise or work that call for the humming and select instinctively the appropriate melodies," said Dr. Parkes Weber. "In fact, the body as well as the mind hum and sings." Now in Stork in our Clothing Daft, o RAINCOATS j by Chas.
