Many Quarrels

The case for the Prosecution is
at Beckles and Cumberbatch had

them were taking the bus to

&, Beckles stabbed him. ¢

defence

+ ahit®

he murder of 48-year-old Win-
began at the Court of

stained clothes to Sgt. Scott. These
clothes, she sdid, had been taken
off Cumberbatch.

Sgt. Thornton of Four Roads,
- St.John, said that on Sepiember

i@ 9, Beckles was brought to District

“C” Police Station
charged with

and at first
inflicting grievous

bodily harm and on the following”

day with murder.

Doctor Anthony Gale who was
on duty at the Casualty of the
General Hospital when Cumber-
batch was carried there, said he
had a stab wound in his left
breast. It was about half an inch
wide, two inches deep, and di-
rectly over the heart. The wound
was inflicted downwards and could
have been caused by a _ sharp
pointed instrument

When he saw Cumberbatch he
Was. just coherent, but lapsed into
incoherence while he was speaking
to him.

Dr. A. S. Cato, visiting medical
practitioner of the General Hospi-
tal, said that the post mortem
appearances were as follows:—
There was a stab wound on the
left side of the chest. There was
eubruise on the lower part of the
back on the right side. There
was an area of softening and
swelling in the middle of the right
cerebral hemispheres.

Half Inch Wound

The stab wound of the chest
reached the muscle of the right
ventrical of the heart, giving a
half inch wound in the heart.

From his examination and from
consideration of the circumstances
surrounding +the death, he would
say that death was due to the de-
fects of embarrassment of the
contraction of the heart, and air
getting into the circulation, there-
by causing damage, These were
the results of the stab wound of
the heart. The wound was inflict-
ed by a sharp pointed instrument.

“From the point of view that
nothing is impossible,”*he — said,
“it is possible that the wound
could have been self-inflicted, but
that is not probable.”

Telephone Messages

George L, Farmer, J.P., a plant-
er of Windemare, St. John, said
he was at home in his sitting room
on September 9 about 10.30 a.m.
when Beckles came and asked
permission to use the telephone.
He 4sked to be put on to District
“C” and went on to say that the
bus had been involved in an acci-
dent on Thicketts Road.

Béckles then said he wanted to
telephone the bus owners. He
telephoned-again and repeated the
same statement,

His wife came into the room and
@nquyired how the accident had
Happened. Beckles told her that
the driver and he were taking the
bys to District “C” and had a con-
‘tention: as to which road they
should take when the bus jumped

Next witness was Sgt. Arthymcthe bank. : ,

Cpl. Hunte told the Court how
he had taken Beckles to the Police
Station to give a statement and
said that Beckles was later charg-
ed with murder.

Cecil O'Neal, Traffic Manager
of the General Bus Co. Ltd., told
the court that Cumberbatah and
Beckles had complained against
each other to him on the morning
before the alleged murder. They
had had a scuffle. He said that
the right front upright near the
driver was broken after the

Blood Stains

There were blood stains about
the driver’s cage, but he had been

one was there before the accident.

gave evidence to the effect that he
was the first who saw Cum-

the bus.

Carmen Bootman,
witnesses who went on the scene
after T accident, said she had
spoken to Beckles. She said that
Beckles was walking away from
the scene when Cumberbatch’s
body was discovered. She recall-
ed Beckles, but he did not return.

Lilian Mc Clean who was within
the cane field near the road when
the bus passed just before the
crash, said that she saw Beckles
jumping over the seats from the
front to the back.

Whitfield Mason was called by
the Court and told the Court that
he could not have seen Beckles
after the bus passed him just be-
fore the crash. When the bus
passed him, though, Beckles was

Statement Incomplete

The additional witness who gave
evidence in the retrial was Super-
intendent Grant. He said that he
had conducted the greater part of
the investigation and the state-
ments from the various witnesses
had been submitted to him. On
September 10, he was informed
that a statement had been taken
from Whitfield Mason but it was
an incomplete statement. He tried
to get the statement completed,
but was unsuccessful in doing so.

To Mr. Dear he said he would
not say that he had the final deci-
sion as to what witnesses he should
call, The Solicitor General had
the privilege of seeing all the
statements.

“T received further information, ’
he said, “that Mason was not wil-

OUR NEEDS |
IF HIS EXCELLENCY’S

Legislature









address to the
at yesterday's opening of the
1951-54 represented
the political party with a
the Barbados House of Assem-
bly we could legitimately rejoice at so
accurate an assessment of what Barbados
needs now. Unfortunately the Governor
was only enjoying his right as Governor to
express opinions that were entirely his own
responsibility. But there is none the Tess
good cause for rejoicing that the Governor
should have spoken with courage and con-
viction his own views on what should be
done. Because the political party in power
will not idly ignore those views.

The Governor did not mince words. He
quoted informed opinion as saying that the
port of Bridgetown is considered to be “the
least efficient and consequently the most
expensive in the Caribbean. He confirmed
informed opinion that there is a “real dan-
ger that the larger class of ships will re-
strict their calls here” and he warned that
“we are not faced with a dispute, but with
a crisis which, if not averted, will affect
adversely everyone in this Island,”

With regard to the Deep Water Harbour,
Sir Alfred Savage again echoed informed
opinion when he expressed the hope that
a definite decision can be taken one way or
the other without further delay. On the
subject of senior-staff in the Civil Service,
Sir Alfred was equally emphatic. He said
that the procession of senior staff (Barba-
dians and others) from this island to better
paid jobs elsewhere must be arrested. He
told the Legislature that he could not carry
out his task with a discontented civil ser-
vice or a service with qualified staff, who
on financial grounds are compelled to seek
other fields of employment.

But the Governor did not only stress
crisis and point to real dangers threatening
Barbados. He suggested positive action to
be taken and proclaimed his belief that we
can succeed in our endeavours to progress
“if we have faith in ourselves and in each
other and do not flinch before the challenge
of the future.”

He was particularly constructive in his
suggestions for the financial and economic
policy which Barbados should adopt for the
next five years. In this sphere the Governor
can in addition to the authority which
comes from his high office speak with de-
tailed experience as an expert in financial
matters. And his recommendations are the
more valuable for this reason, What does he
recommend?

Higher priority must be given to directly
productive schemes. Everyone agrees. More
must be done to improve the productivity
of the 17,000 peasants who grow about 15%
of the sugar crop. Again there is general
agreement.

Further assistance should be given to
small-holders to grow more food and to
keep livestock: irrigation schemes must be
made a live issue: secondary industries,
however small, must be encouraged, if
necessary by loans. These are all-good ob-
jectives which will win support.

And then comes the Tourist Trade. What
does the Governor say? More assistance
should be given by Government and other
interested parties to develop the tourist
trade. Can anyone deny that this is excellent
advice? The remainder of his suggestions
are concerned with revenue and expendi-
ture. Recurrent expenditure should as far
as possible be limited to the moving aver-
age revenue of the previous five years.
This is sound house-keeping economy and
no one can question its wisdom. And it is
only natural that the Governor should
sound the warning that more recurrent,
revenue will be needed if we are to go
ahead with major development schemes
such as a Deep Water Harbour, improved
educational facilities, improved — hos-
pitalization and extension of social ser-
vices. It is only natural, but of course Bar-
bados will be able to afford more revenue
if its productivity goes up. The Goverfhor
does not forget the Revenue Equalization
Fund which should be built up in “above
average” years,

He warns that the General Revenue Bal-
ance should not be allowed to fall below a
third of the annual revenue during the next
five years and that expenditure against

There is much more than deserves
study and consideration in Sir Alfred’s

realistic speech to the Legislature,

But two points deserve more than ordin-
ary notice. He underlined yesterday Bar-
bados’ dependence on rainfall for its reve+
nue. Four above average crops he said “have
given a false sense of security to the gen-
eral public and too many people are for-
getting the bad years of small crops and
limited finances.”

The other point ought to have been made
a long time ago. It is the statement that
“there is a number of potential taxpayers
who are evading the income tax net.”

Sir Alfred has outlined what Barbados
needs. Will the Barbados Labour Party re-
cognise the sincerity of his advice and the
real knowledge on which it is based?

We hope so.



The Mountbatien Story

HICH should we most admire:

Definitely without charm.

When he doodled on a scrap of paper, Camp-
bell-Johnson had no difficulty in discerning “the

symbols of power and glory,”
the piece of paper.

When Jinnah offered to bring
Pakistan into the Commonwealth,
Campbell-Johnson notes that he
“was apparently much shaken
when Mountbatten failed to react
in any way to his offer dramati-
cally presented.”

It is difficult to
what was so shameful abo''t
Jinnah’s proposal. Perhaps
Campbell-Johnson simply cannot
forgive him for being impervious
to the Mountbatten charm. But,
even there, he did the Moslem
leader an injustice. Long after-
wards, he heard that Jinnah had
|said, “When I met (Mountbatten)
for the first time, I felt he had
nur.”

Nur approximates
to “divine radiance.”

So, after all, the circle was
complete. All, all responded to
the magnetism of the last Viceroy.
Some of them, as the reader may
feel, had good cause to.

After all, Nehru and his friends
got more out of the settlement
than they were entitled to—
which strongly suggé@sts that
their brand of charm was not
without its danger. Jinnah got
less than he had hoped for—
punishment for lack of charm?
and Mountbatten? He _ carried
out his orders.

The Gold, Too

He gave away the King-
Emperor's sovereignty (plus the
King-Emperor’s gold plate in
Viceroy’s House), with all the
grace in, the world. He had
hoped that from the _ great
renunciation he might save an
Indian dominion. In this he
failed,

Campbell Johnson’s enthusiasm
for his master does not conceal
from the unwariest reader that
they were certain flaws in the
Delhi adventure.

Dominion was a_ well-meant
blunder. It strengthened the
Moslems in their belief that they
were not being treated justly. It
involved Lord Mountbatten in
the transactions over Kashmir.

While still Viceroy, Mount-
batten saw this ruler and urged
him to aecede either to Pakistan
or to India by a given date
and to do so after finding out
what his people wanted. The
Maharaja was Hindu; his people
Moslem.

The Maharaja did not consult
his people and did not accede by
the given day. His territory was
occupied by Indian troops after
he had been persuaded or brow-
beaten into acceding to India.

Mount Everest is about
50,000,000 years old. That's
young for a mountain. Ben

Nevis in Scotland is infinitely
older, and was a mighty sum-

comprise Everest were sedi-
ment at the bottom of a now
vanished sea.

Before the titanic convulsions
that pushed the sea bed into
the sky there were fish swim-
ming over it. Some geologists
believe the sca bed that be-
came a mountain is still getting
higher.

Mount Everest was “discov-
ered” 99 years ago by an Indian
clerk who had probably never
even seen it. Until then it was
known as Peak XV and was
just one _of the scores of ill-

mapped mountains in the

Agonies OFA Meat-Hungry |

Briton At The Smithfield
Livestock Show

By BRETT OLIVER
LONDON.

UNTIL the day comes when meat goes off
the ration in Britain, I refuse point-blank to
|see another Smithfield Livestock Show and
| Agricultural Machinery Exhibition.
| Any man who likes lamb and mint sauce,
| and plenty of it and doesn’t like fish particu-
| larly would feel much the same way. Really, |;
| it was excruciating to see some of the world’s
best beef, mutton and pork paraded before |
your eyes and then have to go home to the
leftovers from the one meat spree of the
week.

Six hundred fat and tender livestock! And
all you could do was stand there and dream
of them as succulent steaks and chops, juicy
joints, Christmas hams and breakfast bacon.
For meat-hungry Britons, it was worse still
to gaze into refrigerator display windows at
row on row of prime Australia beef joints,
whole lambs and pork roasts in the Australia
export section. People round me had the same
meditative, almost wistful look. Some swal-
lowed hopelessly. It was too much. I moved
on to inspect countless stands of maliciously
unappetising machinery. It was almost a
relief.

The vast hall at London’s Earls Court is
filled with more machinery than ever. The
country’s agricultural engines have done
wonders since 1945. In that year, the value of
total output of farm machinery was only £19
million, of which no more than 18 per cent.
went overseas. In 1950, production had
soared to £84.7 million—more than 50 per
cent. of it for export. This year, it is expected
to top £100 million, with 53 per cent. of it
going overseas,

It is a good record, and clearly to be seen
in the 2500 exhibits of agricultural machinery
packed into Earls Court.

They don’t stop at tractors, almost synono-
mous with good farming nowadays. Certainly,
there are tractors on show, from. diesel-
powered giants for the toughest jobs to the
little hand-controlled two-wheelers for
market gardens and orchards. There are the
combine harvesters which cut, thresh and
sack corn in one operation, and hundreds of
special implements and fittings for tractors to
enable one machine to do a number of jobs--
all reducing the time factor and increasing
output in relation to cost.





What is really new is the development of
mechanical handling machinery for loading
shifting farm produce. Even up to the last
war this field was still following only vari-
ations of centuries-old practices.

For stockmen there are numerous plants
for dehydrating and preparing foodstuffs
from green and other crops, plants which
make today’s farm buildings more like a
‘actory.

To a townsman, a lot of machinery in the
exhibition conveys little. I must confess that
some of the equipment was still a tangle of
steel rods and arms no matter how long i
stared. Rugged farmers, tweedy and earthy,
saw them as agricultural gems and talked of
\ “self-lift three-point linkage hay rake,” and
“non-acid, multi-purpose trailer crop spray-
ers” with knowledgeable intensity.

I took note of some of the more unusual
and intriguing exhibits. There was a new mill
for grinding, fitted with de-fibring apparatus
and controlled by an electronic brain; a new
cream separator in the form of a small earth-
enware pan which, filled with milk and left
‘or seven or eight hours, enables the milk tc
be poured away leaving the cream in a spe-

cial trap; a vegetable washing machine with
| 500 water jets powered by a three-speed
15 h.p. motor. Then, on another stand stood
i mobile butcher's shop, fitted with hot and
‘old .water supply, refrigeration plant and
electric ventilation.

| I learned that overseas interest in. this
| year’s exhibition is specially big. Record
| orders are expected to follow and 1952 will
| indoubtedly see another -record ‘established
| .n Britain’s export of farm machinery. Buyers
|here from all the farming countries of the
Commonwealth and Empire are impressed
| with advances made since the end of the war.
| The revival of the industry is welcomed
overseas where farm development was set
‘back badly by the war. Increasing efforts
;are being made to boost farm production and
| the results of intense scientific and engineer-
ing research in Britain since 1945 are gradu-
ally transforming farming overseas into a
slickly-organized and high-power business.

British farms are probably the most highly
mechanized in the world to-day. And exports
‘of machinery which have made them that
; Way are paying a double dividend. They help
\increase production overseas, which méaris
more food for importation and they earn more
money to pay for the food.

Tn a wey, it looks encouraging for the meat
ration I was thinking about earlier. Britons
aren’t starving by any means but when they
can go into a butcher’s and’ buy what they
want, they will feel a lot happier. It is enter-
prise like that shown at Earls Court this week



which is_bringing the non-ration day closer.

Governor Opens Legislative Session

Vr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Couneil :

_ Mr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :

It is with a deep consciousness of the solemnity of this occasion that |
address you. The Legislature and the people of this Island are facing anew
period of development—political, sucial and economic—and against the: back

ground of the last war with its crippling effects on the economy of the Cota-

monwealth and with a foreground of threats of war, if we are to sueceed in our
endeavours it will need the maximum effort of each one of us, a very. much
closer co-operation of all people, less cleverness and more wisdom, and a more
practical application of the Christian principles which we profess.

{t is with this appéal that I greet you and weleome you on your return
to duty and service for the-pgople of this Island. Those of you who previously
have had the honour And privilege of being members of the Legislature will
I am sure, continue to give the benefit of your counsel and your more mature
experience of affairs. Those who are new to the political life of the Island
will rapidly appreciate; as a statesman once said, that successful Government
is essentially synthetic. In the crucible of the Legislature we hope to fuse
together the aims and the aspirations of our community into one composite
whole. But “the heat needed.for this process is the heat of anxiety to serve
and not that. of controversy or of seetional hostility or of personal interests.”

APPOINTMENTS
| regret to inform you that Sir Dudley Leacock has resigned his appoint-
ment as a member of the Exeeutive Council on general health grounds. His
services to this Island in many eapacities have received well deserved praise
from all sections of the community and were fittingly recognised by His
Majesty the King in the last Birthday Honours by the award of a Knighthood.
1 wish him a very happy and tranquil retirement.
| have (a) provisionally appointed the Honourable John Chandler,
ree President of the Legislative Council, as a member of the Executive
Council;
(b) appointed the Honourable H. A, Cuke; C:B.B., M.L.C., to be a
member of the Executive Committee; and ,
(¢) on the nomination of the leader of the majority party in the
House of Assembly, | have appointed the following four House members
to be members of the Executive Committee :—
Mr.,.G. Hl. Adams
Dr. H. G. Cummins
Mr. M. E. Cox, and
Mr. F. L. Waleott.
Mr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Couneil :
| have appointed Mr. Campbell Wylie to be a provisional member of the
Legislative Council in place of Mr, F. BE. Field.
Mr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :
GENERAL
There is before us a tremendous volume of work and a host of difficult: prob-
lems. Those that come to mind are, in alphabetical order, certain constitutional
questions the Civil Service, the Cost of Living, a Deep Water Harbour, Finan-
cial Policy, Hospital Development, Housing, Lrrigation, Loeal Government and
Public Health, Office accommodation for Government Departments, Population,
the Port of Bridgetown, Production and Subsidization of foodstuffs, Secondary
Industries, School building p: -g ‘amme and Teehnical Education.
I.do not intend to atter:p a complete survey, and, therefore, | haye selected
a number of these items for brief consideration, put their selection does not
imply that the others are not of similar importance. ' would only add that the
opinions I express are entirely my own responsibility and, again, I seek your
indulgence if unwittingly I offend in word any of your traditions or unwritten
rules.

CIVIL SERVICE

I propose first to make some reference to the Civil Service, Following the
reorganisation of departmental staffs carried out during the last session, some
progress: has been made in sending officers overseas for further training and in
obtaining the services of overseas officers to train local staff. 1 am aware that
more needs to be done on a*broader and on a long term basis, but the pressure
of work over the last twelve months unfortunately has precluded this. | 1 am
responsible for the delays, but I haye endeavoured to deal personally with each
department individually rather than delay the completion of an overall plan.
1 can only say that L hope to complete the proposals by the end of January.

1 do not believe the increasing volume and complexity of public business
is appreciated by members of the general public. In the past, to a great extent,
each Colony was interested almost solely in its own affairs, but in the last decade,
the development of international relations, conventions, conferences and the
specialization in almost every brahich of the public service, has thrown a tre-
mendous burden on administrations, and in Berbados with its limited number of
specialist officers, the load has slowed down the speed of achievement, This is
no reflection on serving officers 6%, in particular, on officers who have acted
in the more senior posts. Far too often | have had to demand that they should
endeavour to carry out many of the duties of two posts and, therefore, have
placed on them an unreasonable yolume of work, But it is essential to refer
again to the basic reasons for this apparent neglect of the administration in
filling vacancies.

When | spoke on this matter eighteen months ago, | referred to the neces-

sity to review the terms and conditions of service of professional and other
senior offices and to bring them as far ag our finances would allow to the market
evel,
. Te: my first two years of service in Barbados, I have been, for periods of a
year or upwards, without the services‘of six substantive Heads of Departments
‘and other senior officers. At the end of this month, I shall lose the services of
another Head of Department whose post I have endeavoured, without success, to
fill during the last twelve months. Three serving Heads of Departments have
applied for transfers to other administrations. The most important department
of this Government from an economie point of view is the Agricultural Depart-
ment. If you Study the rainfall of Barbados over the last one hundred years
and compare the crops of the same period, you will find that we are getting
much bigger crops than ever before. There can hardly be one planter who
would not admit that this is due in the main to the work (theoretical, practical
and instructional) of the officers of the Department of Agriculture. Let me
tell you the staff positon. Theré has. been a vacancy fe- a Deputy Director of
Agriculture for just over two years and there are tvo other vacancies awaiting
recruitment, i.¢., Veterinary Officer aud Senicr Peasant Agricultural Instructor.
The posts of Government Analyst, the former holder of which went on leave
prior to retirement in May, 1950, and of Co-op» rative, Oxheer, which was ereated
in August, 1950, have only recently been filied. In addition, one senior officer
has applied for a transfer to a Colony where leave passages are provided, and
another has for the time*being withdrawn the application for transfer which
he had submitted,

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



This is‘all very insidious, for the progressive reduction in the effieieney of
the Agricultural Department would not be quickly seen. Nearly two years ago,
difficulties were being experienced in reeruiting senior qualified teaching staff.
The considerable number of changes in staff in the last twelve months and the
renewed difficulty im reernitment, demands re-consideration of the problem.
These difficulties oceur in many departments which are just as important in their
own sphere of administration. | must emphasise it is not only the question of
re-ruitment, for there is also the problem of retaining serving officers. We have
end-avoured aS a temporary expedient to fill some yacancies by short term
ageeements on. noy-pensionable terms and at very much higher salaries. We
have had to do it, but it has caused much bitterness—and in my opinion legiti
mately so--among the serving officers, many of whom have given a lifetime ot
service to this Government

What are the objections to the review IT have proposed? | haye been told
we cannot afford to pay more, or that if the emoluments of professional officers
are raised there will be pressure for all Government employees of all grades to
have their salaries raised, or that the Governor is endeavouring to get bett»
salaries for officers from overseas and so keep Barbadians out of the best jobs

Let me deal briefly with each objection. While I shall deal with the future
budgetary position in a moment. I can say I have no doubt that this island can
atford to bring its civil service salaries and terms and conditions of service uy
to, say, British Guiana standards. But [ must emphasise that the real approach
should be rather—can Barbados afford to allow its standards in administration, |
in the scientific field and in the many professional fields, to deteriorate to the
lowest in the Caribbean? The procession of senior staff (Barbadians and others)
trom this Island to better paid jobs elsewhere must be arrested. As Head of the
Administration, | have a responsibility to the Legislature and to the people of
this Island to maintain an efficient public service, but 1 cannot carry out my
task with a discontented civil service or a service with qualified staff who, on
financial grounds, are compelled to seek other fields of employment

The next objection has been that it would be unfair to the junior staff to |
improve the terms and conditions of service of the senior staff. That argument
in general, unfortunately, won the day at the last revision of salaries and that
is, of course, why we are in such a parlous condition now, Salaries and wages
and terms end conditions of service in the junior branch of the civil service
compare favourably with those in private employment, and rightly so, but those
of the senior branch of the service are poor in comparison with almost any other
field of employment. Furthermore, the salary seales and superscale posts in
the civil service are quite unbalanced and need coordination. The average
salary of a Head of Department is not much more than $5,000 a year, whereas
a clerical officer can hope to earn roughly 60% of that amount. Surely, it is
obvious that that percentage is completely out of line with the eomparative
responsibilities of the posts’?

.

The third objection is that the Governor wishes to ruise the emoluments of
overseas officers and so retain their services in this Island, to the detriment of |
Barbadians. I would have hoped that in two years | would have earned the
contidence of this Civil Service. I do not practice discrimination of that kind
But the problem is not that of attracting and retaining overseas officers. The
same arguments apply to Barbadians and other West Indians, ‘Too often, and
for too long, the argument has been advanced that if you keep the salaries low in
Barbados, jobs will be kept for Barbadians. What is the result? There are
many qualified Barbadians who have found the local terms of service unattrac
tive and now are enjoying more attractive posts in nearly every part of the
world, A

A few weeks ago, the House of Assembly passed an Address expressing
general agreement with the terms of the Holmes Report and in view of that
measure of agreement, I have again appointed a Committee to examine the
matter. T trust that its report will receive the early and the sympathetic eon
sideration of the Legislature. : ;

POSITION OF CIVIL, SERVANTS

It is inevitable that in a small island problems of personalities should
arise, but | have been distressed at the practice of abusing Civil Servants in
privileged circumstances which do not permit them to reply or to defend them-
selves, Let it not be thought for one moment that | am trying to interfere with
the rights of free speech and fair criticism. But it is axiomatic that rights im
ply obligations and there is a world of difference between fair criticism of the
operations of a Government department and invective against individual Civil
Servants. I hope the practice will cease.

GOVERNMENT OFFICES

There is an urgent need for final decisions to be taken regarding new Gov-
ernment offices. It appears to me that we shall not reach finality until a firm
decision is taken as to whether it is intended to erect new buildings to accom. |
modate thé Honourable Legislative Council, the House of Assembly and the |
departments of the Colonial Secretary afd the Attorney General. A Joint |
Select Committee considered the proposal just after the outbreak of the last |
war and réached the conclusion that *

The difficulty of obtaining a suitable site has always been a problem, but
with some diffidence | throw out the suggestion that an excellent site is avail- |
ble at the east end of Government House grounds. There are several acres of
mainly rocky ground which cannot economically be developed agriculturally
and adequate maintenance is difficult. In my opinion, the use of that site for |

ihe grounds and the site is so far distant from the house that there would not
oe any inconvenience to anyone. '

THE PORT OF BRIDGETOWN

This brings me to the question of the present conditions in the Port o1
Rridgetown, The position has become yery serious and over recent weeks [ have
had informal discussions with representatives of employers and employees. From
my personal contact with ships’ masters and shipping representatives, I am
mformed that the Port of Bridgetown is considered to be the least efficient and
vonsequeitly the most expensive in the Caribbean. The result has been that one
Kuropean company has imposed a surcharge of 10% on all cargo for Barbados,
while three North American companies have given notice of a surcharge of
15% There is also a real danger that the larger elass of ships will restrict thei
alls here as there is a shortage of ships and haridling time is particularly vital
at present, The effect of such action would be that our imports would cost us
ynore because of additional freight and treble handling charges, while our re
‘eipts from our exports would be reduced for similar reasons, with the result
that food and other priees would rise. We are not faced with a dispute, but with
a erisis which, if not averted, will affect, adversely everyone in this Island

I believe that employers and employees can yet the situation. At
present — it seems to me — that representatives of both sides rarely meet ex
vept when there is a dispute, There is an urgent necessity for them to meet more
often and to move closer in a ‘‘partnership of goodwill’’ in the port. I have
suggested that a ‘‘good offices’ committee at the highest level should meet at the
earliest possible moment to consider the reaséns for the present erisis and to
thake recommendations towards a solution. [ do not wish to intervene unneces
warily; but 1 am prepared, if I am approached by both parties, viz., the Barbados
Workers’ Union and the Shipping and Mercantile Association, to art as chairman
to such a Committee and to, use my best endeavours to assist in solving the
»roblem

_ The North American companies have announced their intention of im
posing a siurcharge of 15% as from the Ist of January next, but I appeal to them,
through their local agents, to defer the implementation of that decision for
three months to vive ws an opportunity to remove the stigma and regain the
reputation of efficiency which the port undeniably has lost

HOMES
refer to Housing wich L prefer to designate ‘‘Homes’’, The Census
Report of 1946 with its summary of dwellings and rooms provides much useful
information in relation to the veeds of the situation, and it should now be
possible to prepare a lon plan. 1 say “long term’’ for it is not possible
wnancialiy for any country to carry out a major housing programme in a short
term of years. er nrgrhge

Much has been done by way of loans for repairing and improving houses
— from the Labour Welfare und; by housing schemes from publie funds
both by providing prepared sites for building and by building homes at low
rentals, A Civil Serviee Housing Scheme is to be submitted to the Legislature
in the immediate future.

Sor the present, the Labour Welfare Fund provides only for loans for the

‘alterations, additions or repairs to a house.”’
inadequaie for any other purpose.
T-would hope that some priority could now be given to the
homes, I believe that Government ‘‘should favour awnership and its policy
should be to *‘induce as many people as possible to become owners.’’ Good homes
are the foundations of a happy community and there can be ne doubt that when
people own property theiselves, they gain in self respect and become more use-
ful citizens.

I realize that larger loans vil! condition the rate of progress, but I trust that

n the long term plan which is necessary, some funds will be made available to
uevease the number of owners of homes in this Island.
PRODUCTION OF FOOD
‘ommon world problem i; the inereasiny cost of living. In Barbados
there has been a substantial in: rease in price levels of our imports und of our
domestic production and already we are aware of further potential increases.
Our chief food imports come ivom Canada, the United States, Australia and
sritish Guiana, and the rise in the cost of living in those countries is reflected
in the prices we have to pay. Our own exports have increased substantially in
price which affects the eost of Hving in other countries ;

There are many reasons for this economic roundabout, probably the strong.
est being the threat of war with its rearmament progranime and consequent
inflation. In Barbados, as in qany other countries, we have endeavoured to
cushion the-rise in prices of certain essential foodstuffs by subsidization, but
as elsewhere, the substantial increases in price levels have reduced the effective.
ness of such policy, It is my considered opinion that we cannot afford to in-
evease the recurrent cost of subsidization which already represents a charge
of over 10% of our normal budgst.

There are, of course, erertain foodstuffs which we cannot grow ourselves
and the general view ap ,cars to be that it is unlikely that we could grow other
foodstuffs any chenxper than we can import them. T may have the confidence
ot ignorance, but ! ain not satis.ied to accept that view.

PIG INDUSTRY

L refer in particular to the 2.000 tons of salted pork which we are importing
every year from North America and which we are also subsidizing by over
$800,000 a year. There are two private schemes of pig production and market-
ing of which | am aware and | hope that Government will be prepared to assist
the ventures and to encourage jroducers to develop the industry, not only for
domestic consumption but for tle export of hams and bacon in the Caribbean

CENTRAL MILK DEPOT

I deeply regret that the proposed scheme for a Central Milk Depot and
Greamery has met with so many difficulties. From a food production point of
view this is of the highest priority. Quite apart from the potential increased
production of milk, the seheme would also result in the production of more meat,
Another factor is that the by-product of pen manure is of vital importance to
the sugar industry.

‘ " FISHING INDUSTRY

The recent disaster whereby the greater part of the fishing fleet on the
Leeward coast has been destroyed, affects the fishermen very seriously and food
sroduction substantially, For some time previously there had been discussions
regarding mechanization of some vessels which would result

} f in a substantial
snerease in the quantity of fish caught.

‘ The disaster has expedited: consideration
of this matter and the Fisheries Advisory Committee is now consid ering a scheme
to include mechanization of some of the new wessels to be built The question
of the refrigeration and marketiong of the supply of fish above immediate mar-
ket requirements has also to be considered, ;
VEGETABLES

As regards green vegetable crops, I am advised that any deerease in the

present high costs can be sought in two ways —
(a) by encouraging the prowers to produce more ;

es (b) by decreasing the present high costs of distribution

This would necessitate the establishment of a central marketing depot with
cold storage facilities and these matters are now being investigated. z

I would ;
the Manager after nine |

months operation of the Housing Loans Scheme: |

(a) The increased cost of materials has had an unfortunate effect
upon the rate and period of repayment of loans: : '
The worst aspect of housing conditions as revealed by inspection
is overcrowding ;
Most houses in respect of which applications for loans were made,
were in a bad state of disrepair ;
d) There is encouraging evidence of
workers to repay their loans; :
e) Owners and managers of estates and factories have been active
mid helpful in their co-operation. Without their assistance the
scheme would not have worked.
PRICE STABILIZATION RESERVE FUND
No call has had to be made on the Price Stabilization Reserve Fund since
its inception, but some small reduetion is being made in the annual rate of
contribution in certain years for the benefit of the Labour Welfare Fund.
There appears to be a body of opinion that considers that in view of the ex-
ternal “rolling agreement” with the United Kingdom, there is not the same
need for such a Keserve Fund as before. I do moy share that view. We may
well have a period of droughts, in whieh ease this Fund may be essential to
help cushion the dustry over difficult days,
CAPITAL REHABILITATION RESERVE FUND.
As js weil known, the purpose of the Capital Rehabilitation Reserve Fund
‘s primarily to bring factory efficiency to the highest level possible. A survey
of factory requirements was undertaken when the scheme was initiated, and in
the last five years much has been done to achieve the purpose of the Fund, But
it is clear that an up to date survey of present and future requirements 1s

Wr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :
GOVERNMENT FINANCES.
1 turn now to consideration of the future budgets of Barbados, I do not

intend to go into a lot of detail, but to indicate what I believe, with the experi-
ence I have gained in the last two years, to be a sound financial policy. We
are of course a part of the sterling area and naturally the strength or weakness
of sterling is reflected in our economy. The iast world war and a current re-
armament programme have weakened the Commonwealth, but if war ean be
averted [T am not unhopeful of some strengthening of sterling and, therefore,
of our own economy.
RAINFALL AND REVENUE.

Rainfall and Government Revenue in Barbados are directly related. This
can be ascertained from a comparative table of annual rainfall, crops and
revenue. Last season we had the highest rainfall since 1897 and the biggest crop
ever recorded-—187,000 tons. This is reflected in our eurrent receipts from
customs and excise which will exceed $6,000,000 and in direct taxation—income
tax—which we will collect next year whieh will reach a new peak. The previous
two seasons also reflected above average rainfalls, above average crops and good
revenues. We have had good rains so far this vear and again a good crop—
presently estimated at 165,000 tons—is anticipated. But these four crops are
above average and are giving, | feel, a false sense of security to the general

public and too many people are forgetting the bad years of small crops and lfirming the decision Their Hon-

limited finances. The weakness of a one crop economy must be obvious and

although the development of secondary industries must be encouraged, our}simple. The men who are boat-|

financial policy must be primarily related to agriculture
I have, therefore, sat at the feet of the Director of Agriculture, of Sir John
Saint and other agriculturists and endeavoured to determine future prospects
assuming minimum and maximum rainfalls, further development of new cane
var'cties and the best use of the land. I have summarised their advice as follows :—
(a) It is unlikely that we shall ever fall below a crop of 80,000 tons
in the future ;
(b) It would be reasonable to assume an average crop of the order
of 150,000 tons in the next five years ;
(c) With optimum conditions, a maximum crop of the order of 200,000
tons could be achieved at the end of ten years.
FINANCIAL POLICY
| have endeavoured to translate those opinions into financial and economic
poliey for the next five years and these are my conclusions :
(a) Higher priority must be given to directly productive schemes;
(b) More must be done to improve the productivity of the 17,000
peasants who presently grow about 15% of the sugar erop;

(e) Purther assistance should be given to smallholders to grow moré
feod and to keep livestock; .. ..

(ad) Lrrigation schemes must be made a live issue;

(e) Secondary industries, however small, must be encouraged, if

necessary by loans;
(f) More assistance should be given by Government, and other inter-
ested parties, to develop the tourist trade ;
(g) Reeurrent expenditure should as far as possible be limited to the
moving average revenue of the previous five years ;
More recurrent revenue will be needed if we are to go ahead with
major development schemes such as a Deep Water Harbour,
improved and extended educational facilities, improved hospitaliza-
tion and extension of social services;

(i) The Revenue Equalization Fund, which has been approved with a

token contribution of $150,000 this year, should be built up in
‘above average’’ crop years by fixed annual eontributions and by
the transfer of, say, 50% of any budget surpluses, so that in bad
years we can maintain the current level of public services;
(j) The General Revenue Balance should not be allowed to fall below
a third of the annual revenue during the next five years;
(k) Expenditure against loans should, as far as possible, be limited
to schemes which are directly remunerative ;
RECURRENT REVENUES

| do not propose to detain you by explaining in detail each of these eoneln-
sions, but | want to refer to the item relating to the necessity to obtain addi-
tional recurrent revenne if we are to embark on & major development pro-
gramme,

Recently my attention has been drawn to articles in the Press regarding the
incidenee of taxation in Barbados. | agree at owee that there is a number of
potential taxpayers who are evading the income tax net and that is why the
Department has been reorganised, additional staff provided and emphasis placed
on the preparation of statistics.

But the implication in the original article that public services are pro-
vided, or could be provided, primarily from direct taxation is misleading. 1
enticipate the total revenue this year will reach nearly $72,250,000 of which
only roughly one third will be derived from income tax. The remaining $5,000,-
000 will be received from indirect taxation, Customs and Excise duties paid by
ail sections of the community, and from fees, licences, ete., collected from the
general publi

To return to my main point regarding the raising of additional revenue.
In the last twelve months a review of all revenue items of the Estimates has been
undertaken excluding Head I (Customs and Excise) and Head IT (Taxation).
They include licences, fees for services and other items which have not been re-
vised for many years. There is a legitimate case for some increases. But from a
brief survey of the items, | do not consider we could anticipate colleeting more
than an additional $150,000 annually. As regards Customs and Excise duties,
ii would be possible to raise more revenue on many items, but although there
are very few items which are not related in some way to the cost of living, we
may haye to review this souree of revenue. An fierease in company tax would
vot be substantially effective for most of the capital employed in Barbados
is local and the shareholders are assessed individually. As regards rates of
meome tax on individuals, my view is that no change should be considered until
the Income Tax Department has repaired most of those meshes in its net whieh
are broken and we are satisfied that those who should be paying are, in fact,
assessed.

There is an alternative to increasing customs duties and other taxes. Tt is
io reduce expenditure and I press for reeonsideration of my previous suggestion
for the progressive reduction of present subsidization over a term of years. |The
funds which are saved could be used for financing a development loan. T admit
that less subsidization means an increase in the cost of living, but T see no other
alternatives than those T have mentioned

There is an alternative of three|
months’ imprisonment with hard|
labour if the fine is not paid,
Counsel in the case was Mr. E. W.
Barrow for the defendants Knight}
and Carter.

Police Constables Phillips and
Wilkinson said that while they}
were on duty on the Wharf they)
saw the two defendants in a boat.)
One of them threw a_canv:
spread on the Wharf. They be-|
came suspicious and on opening}
the canvas spread, they found,
that it contained a bolt of cloth
In the boat was a tin filled with
cloth. One of them said that the
Spread wus heavy. In cross ex-
amination Wilkinson said that he
did not see both men throw the}
spread on the Wharf.

In addressing the court Mr.
Barrow said that no evidence wa
given in the case that this parti-
cular bolt of cloth was liable to
customs duties. In a criminal sudh|
as this mens rae must be proved
and the onus was upon th
prosecution to show that the de-
fendants were aware that the
goods found in the spread wer
goods liable to forfeiture. In this
particular case the men_ were
boatmen and quite normally

ment on that part of the Wharf.

that on the evidence the decision

session.

“Mr. Husbanas needs no recom-
mendation from me or from any
of us as Speaker inasmuch as he
has already presided over our des-
tinies with the dignity which we
expect from the Speaker of a Leg-
islative Assembly, and I may add
with extra dignity, if such a thing
is possible—that one would expect
from the Speaker of a Legislative
Assembly that is the second oldest
in the Colonial world.

“I go further, if one were to
read the old debates of the Assem-
bly that had taken place over the
past 300 years in the life of Bar-
bados, one could not find to-day

any diminution in the care witn
which the proposed Speaker has
conducted as our guardian, the

affairs of this Assembly.

“Mr. Husbands has shown the
attention to detail and procedure
as well as the observations of the
rules of the House that one ex-
pects from the holder of an office
as old as ours.

Too Dignified

“Perhaps I should not say this,
but there had been times when 1
personally thought that he was too
dignified and careful as a Speaker.
One does not want to draw invi-
dious comparisons, but it is far
better to show respect to a rigid
Speaker rather than to a lax
Speaker.

“If Mr. Husbands continues in



the way he has begun, I have no
doubt that for the next 40 or 50.
years, we or our successors would

have to
Speaker.”
Mr, J. E, T. Brancker seconded
the proposal made by the Senior
Member for St. Joseph, not mere-
ly because he was the second old-
est member in the Chamber, he
said but, because of his personal
feelings in the matter.

The re-election of Mr. Husbands
as Speaker would provide the
utmost satisfaction to the vast
majority of the inhabitants of the
colony. The electorate of St, Peter
had showed their appreciation by
returning him as senior member
for his parish,

During the past session, he had
studied parliamentary procedure
from the Imperial Home of parlia-
mentary democracy. He had profit-
ed as they had expected he would,
from the two trips he had made
to the Mother of Parliaments.
The fact that he had taken his
duties so seriously during the
past session was an indication that
he would do so even more serious-
ly during this session.

He was therefore happy to sec-
ond the motion made by the hon-
ourable senior member for St.
Joseph.

may mean kidney trouble

A function of the kidneys is to eliminate
harmful impurities from the system. If the
kidneys grow sluggish, these imnpurities—
in particular excess acid—-accumulate and
settle, and become a cause of pain and
suffering in joints and muscles.

The way to tackle the root of the trouble
is to help the kidneys, They should be
toned up with De Witt's Pills — the medicine
made specially for this purpose. De Witt's

Pills have a cleansing and
antiseptic action on the kidneys that

brings them back to perform their
natural function properly.

” Pe Witt’s Pills are a very well-tried

remedy. They are sold all over the world
and we have many letters from sufferers
telling of relief gained, after years of
suffering after taking De Witt's Pills.
They act on the kidneys quickly. Why
not them for x trouble? Go to
your chemist and obtain a supply to-day.

Despite

Valentine

From HAROLD DALE

SYDNEY, Dec. 18.
Amidst scenes of extraordinary enthusiasm, West
Australia beat the West Indies by one wicket at Perth

to-day. Excellent bowling

by Valentine and John. Trim

had steadily mowed down the state batsmen through the
day until with the last pair together and 48 still needed to

win,

class victory.

But Allan Edwards, stood in
their way and proved immovable,
until the game was won. His
great innings contained 11 fours.

It was 4 pity that Trim was not
brought back to bow! at the anxi-
ous, Dunn during this vital last
wicket stand, especially as he had
done so much to give the West
Indies their chance by taking
three for nine in one spell

_ Harriman Urges
Full Speed Alhead
For N.A.T.O. In “52

PARIS, Dec. 18.
The Mutual Security Adminis-
trator, W. Averell Harriman, plead-
ed full speed ahead in European
Rearmament, and General Eisen-
hower pledged the full assistance
of S.H.A.P.E. Headquarters in re-
ceiving maximum goal by 1952.
The statement was contaimed in

the long awaited report of the
temporary Committee of ihe
N.A.T.O. (North Atlantic Treaty

Organization) Harriman said, “The
N.A.T.O. can achieve during the
next year an impressive increase
in its defensive form which will
provide greatly increased deter-
rent to aggression. But Harriman
warned that member governments
and agencies must start work im-

mediately on “certain urgently
required measures.”
Russia virtually promised to

take its seat in the new Commis-
sion, even if forced to vote against
the resolution creating it, due to
continued reference to the Baruch
Plan, Westerners quickly opposed
the Polish Plan yesterday, which

would create’ the Commission
without any instruction. Under the
Western Plan, the Commission

would get to work within 30 days
of final Assembly approval.

B29 CRASHES
INTO HOUSE,
POWER LINES

SHREVEPORT, Louisiana,
Dec, 18,

Four men were killed when a
B.29 bomber crashed and burned |
near here, but fast work by the |
rescue crews who pulled the vic-
tims from the flaming wreckage
is credited with the saying of
Nine other crewmen.

Ambulance and crash truck
crews sped to the crashed super-
fortress within three minutes
after the big bomber roared out
of low-lying fog clipped a house,
sniped through electric power
lines, and smashed into the main
highway near Barksdale Air Force
Base l\ast night,

An unidentified man and his
wife were slightly injured when
a bomber sheared off the top of
their house about 200 yards from
the highway.

W. Berlin’s Message
To The Krentlin

BERLIN, Dec. 18.

The holly, carols, and brightly
‘orated store windows in Allied
se@ors of Berlin form the West's
Christmas card to the Kremlin,
There is a belief here that it gives
the traditional greeting of
peace and goodwill” to all peo-
ples on the Soviet side with more
significance than any diplomatic
phrase or gesture could manage.

West Berliners have learned to
believe again in the warmth and
promise of the Christmas message.
This is seen in the thronging
crowds along the main thorough- |
fare, the Christmas trees outside |
stores in colourful displays and |
above all in good humour and the |
people’s cheerfulness.—U.P. |

Sportsman's Diary:

Young

Wim-
be a
sters
tennis
title

as if the
championships
big year for youth.
tare on the march in lawr
Favourite for the women’s
will almost certainly be Maureen
Connolly, only 17 when she won
the U.S. title in September

From Australia two prodigies
are likely to arrive—Ken Rose-
wall and Lew Hoad, both now 17.

Britain’s contribution w ill
surely be Robert Wilson, Britain's
junior champion, only just 16.

Prodigies Then

But there is nothing new under
the Wimbledon sun.

Betty Nuthall, Who played her
first Wimblelon when 15, was

cnly 16 when she defeated the
U.S. champion, Mrs. Mallory
there.

The record is not likely to be
surpassed. Miss Lottie Dod was
cnly 15 when she won in 1887 the
first of her five championships.
Later she became English golf
champion.

Miss Nuthall, a travel agent in
New York, is now on her way
back there after a holiday with
her mother, Mrs. Stuart Nuthall,
ot Richmond. She said that com-
petitive tennis should begirrat 14.
She herself first used a racket at
eight, and played in a junior tour-
nament a year later.

Nought For Plenty

Little “Sonny” Ramadhin
nought for 143 in a Test. What
can the matter be?

One of the Lancashire men at
the cricket coaching conference in
Shropshire during the week-end
was telling me of Ramadhin’s ex-
traordinary proficiency with the
catapult—skill which entertains
the small boys of Oldham durihg
the League cricket season.

We had come to regard him as
equally deadly with a cricket ball
—but now this!

Over Bowled

There are three likely explana-
tions. Probably the truth lies in
a combination of them:

(1) Ramadhin, with big fel-
low Valentine, has been over-
bowled in this and the previous

Test. At Brisbane he _ sent
down 64 eight-ball overs in
the two innings: now at Syd-

ney 41 in one. A lot of bowling
for a man not physically stur-
dy

(2) The Sydney wicket was
less kind to Ramadhin than ours
in England.

(3) Australians,
way of attacking slow bowl-
ing, are getting used to him.
The “moral” of it all—how

difficult is it for two bowlers—in
this case Ramadhin and Valentine

to “carry” a Test match side.
For Jack Young
A personal item: Middlesex
have granted next_season’s Whit-
sun match at Lord’s \ against
Sussex to Jack Young, now 39.

His 157 wickets last season ex~
ceeded those of anyone else save
Appleyard. of Yorkshire, with
200.

Young is not only a great slow

began at the Court of

clothes, she sdid, had been taken
off Cumberbatch.

Sgt. Thornton of Four Roads,
- St.John, said that on Sepiember

i@ 9, Beckles was brought to District

“C” Police Station
charged with

and at first
inflicting grievous

bodily harm and on the following”

day with murder.

Doctor Anthony Gale who was
on duty at the Casualty of the
General Hospital when Cumber-
batch was carried there, said he
had a stab wound in his left
breast. It was about half an inch
wide, two inches deep, and di-
rectly over the heart. The wound
was inflicted downwards and could
have been caused by a _ sharp
pointed instrument

When he saw Cumberbatch he
Was. just coherent, but lapsed into
incoherence while he was speaking
to him.

Dr. A. S. Cato, visiting medical
practitioner of the General Hospi-
tal, said that the post mortem
appearances were as follows:—
There was a stab wound on the
left side of the chest. There was
eubruise on the lower part of the
back on the right side. There
was an area of softening and
swelling in the middle of the right
cerebral hemispheres.

Half Inch Wound

The stab wound of the chest
reached the muscle of the right
ventrical of the heart, giving a
half inch wound in the heart.

From his examination and from
consideration of the circumstances
surrounding +the death, he would
say that death was due to the de-
fects of embarrassment of the
contraction of the heart, and air
getting into the circulation, there-
by causing damage, These were
the results of the stab wound of
the heart. The wound was inflict-
ed by a sharp pointed instrument.

“From the point of view that
nothing is impossible,”*he — said,
“it is possible that the wound
could have been self-inflicted, but
that is not probable.”

Telephone Messages

George L, Farmer, J.P., a plant-
er of Windemare, St. John, said
he was at home in his sitting room
on September 9 about 10.30 a.m.
when Beckles came and asked
permission to use the telephone.
He 4sked to be put on to District
“C” and went on to say that the
bus had been involved in an acci-
dent on Thicketts Road.

Béckles then said he wanted to
telephone the bus owners. He
telephoned-again and repeated the
same statement,

His wife came into the room and

OUR NEEDS |
IF HIS EXCELLENCY’S

Legislature









address to the
at yesterday's opening of the
1951-54 represented
the political party with a
the Barbados House of Assem-
bly we could legitimately rejoice at so
accurate an assessment of what Barbados
needs now. Unfortunately the Governor
was only enjoying his right as Governor to
express opinions that were entirely his own
responsibility. But there is none the Tess
good cause for rejoicing that the Governor
should have spoken with courage and con-
viction his own views on what should be
done. Because the political party in power
will not idly ignore those views.

The Governor did not mince words. He
quoted informed opinion as saying that the
port of Bridgetown is considered to be “the
least efficient and consequently the most
expensive in the Caribbean. He confirmed
informed opinion that there is a “real dan-
ger that the larger class of ships will re-
strict their calls here” and he warned that
“we are not faced with a dispute, but with
a crisis which, if not averted, will affect
adversely everyone in this Island,”

With regard to the Deep Water Harbour,
Sir Alfred Savage again echoed informed
opinion when he expressed the hope that
a definite decision can be taken one way or
the other without further delay. On the
subject of senior-staff in the Civil Service,
Sir Alfred was equally emphatic. He said
that the procession of senior staff (Barba-
dians and others) from this island to better
paid jobs elsewhere must be arrested. He
told the Legislature that he could not carry
out his task with a discontented civil ser-
vice or a service with qualified staff, who
on financial grounds are compelled to seek
other fields of employment.

But the Governor did not only stress
crisis and point to real dangers threatening
Barbados. He suggested positive action to
be taken and proclaimed his belief that we
can succeed in our endeavours to progress
“if we have faith in ourselves and in each
other and do not flinch before the challenge
of the future.”

He was particularly constructive in his
suggestions for the financial and economic
policy which Barbados should adopt for the
next five years. In this sphere the Governor
can in addition to the authority which
comes from his high office speak with de-
tailed experience as an expert in financial
matters. And his recommendations are the
more valuable for this reason, What does he
recommend?

Higher priority must be given to directly
productive schemes. Everyone agrees. More
must be done to improve the productivity
of the 17,000 peasants who grow about 15%
of the sugar crop. Again there is general
agreement.

Further assistance should be given to
small-holders to grow more food and to
keep livestock: irrigation schemes must be
made a live issue: secondary industries,
however small, must be encouraged, if
necessary by loans. These are all-good ob-
jectives which will win support.

And then comes the Tourist Trade. What
does the Governor say? More assistance
should be given by Government and other
interested parties to develop the tourist
trade. Can anyone deny that this is excellent
advice? The remainder of his suggestions
are concerned with revenue and expendi-
ture. Recurrent expenditure should as far
as possible be limited to the moving aver-
age revenue of the previous five years.
This is sound house-keeping economy and
no one can question its wisdom. And it is
only natural that the Governor should
sound the warning that more recurrent,
revenue will be needed if we are to go
ahead with major development schemes
such as a Deep Water Harbour, improved
educational facilities, improved — hos-
pitalization and extension of social ser-
vices. It is only natural, but of course Bar-
bados will be able to afford more revenue
if its productivity goes up. The Goverfhor
does not forget the Revenue Equalization
Fund which should be built up in “above
average” years,

He warns that the General Revenue Bal-
ance should not be allowed to fall below a
third of the annual revenue during the next
five years and that expenditure against
loans should as far as possible be limited to

schemes which are directly temunerative.
This is healthy counsel in an island where

the urge to spend is a national charac-

Legislative Session
the views of

majority in

teristic.
There is much more than deserves
study and consideration in Sir Alfred’s

realistic speech to the Legislature,

But two points deserve more than ordin-
ary notice. He underlined yesterday Bar-
bados’ dependence on rainfall for its reve+
nue. Four above average crops he said “have
given a false sense of security to the gen-
eral public and too many people are for-
getting the bad years of small crops and
limited finances.”

The other point ought to have been made
a long time ago. It is the statement that
“there is a number of potential taxpayers
who are evading the income tax net.”

Sir Alfred has outlined what Barbados
needs. Will the Barbados Labour Party re-
cognise the sincerity of his advice and the
real knowledge on which it is based?

We hope so.



The Mountbatien Story

(By GRORGE MALCOLM THOMSON)

HICH should we most admire:

the

(plainly, far

It is the last which makes the deepest impres-
sion on a reader of Mr. Campbeli-Johnson’s un-

years ago.

Definitely without charm.

When he doodled on a scrap of paper, Camp-
bell-Johnson had no difficulty in discerning “the

symbols of power and glory,”
the piece of paper.

When Jinnah offered to bring
Pakistan into the Commonwealth,
Campbell-Johnson notes that he
“was apparently much shaken
when Mountbatten failed to react
in any way to his offer dramati-
cally presented.”

It is difficult to
what was so shameful abo''t
Jinnah’s proposal. Perhaps
Campbell-Johnson simply cannot
forgive him for being impervious
to the Mountbatten charm. But,
even there, he did the Moslem
leader an injustice. Long after-
wards, he heard that Jinnah had
|said, “When I met (Mountbatten)
for the first time, I felt he had
nur.”

Nur approximates
to “divine radiance.”

So, after all, the circle was
complete. All, all responded to
the magnetism of the last Viceroy.
Some of them, as the reader may
feel, had good cause to.

After all, Nehru and his friends
got more out of the settlement
than they were entitled to—
which strongly suggé@sts that
their brand of charm was not
without its danger. Jinnah got
less than he had hoped for—
punishment for lack of charm?
and Mountbatten? He _ carried
out his orders.

The Gold, Too

He gave away the King-
Emperor's sovereignty (plus the
King-Emperor’s gold plate in
Viceroy’s House), with all the
grace in, the world. He had
hoped that from the _ great
renunciation he might save an
Indian dominion. In this he
failed,

Campbell Johnson’s enthusiasm
for his master does not conceal
from the unwariest reader that
they were certain flaws in the
Delhi adventure.

Increased colonial development

—To remain in Delhi as con-

blunder. It strengthened the
Moslems in their belief that they
were not being treated justly. It
involved Lord Mountbatten in
the transactions over Kashmir.

While still Viceroy, Mount-
batten saw this ruler and urged
him to aecede either to Pakistan
or to India by a given date
and to do so after finding out
what his people wanted. The
Maharaja was Hindu; his people
Moslem.

The Maharaja did not consult
his people and did not accede by
the given day. His territory was
occupied by Indian troops after
he had been persuaded or brow-
beaten into acceding to India.

Young Mountain

Mount Everest is about
50,000,000 years old. That's
young for a mountain. Ben

Nevis in Scotland is infinitely
older, and was a mighty sum-
mit when the materials that
comprise Everest were sedi-
ment at the bottom of a now
vanished sea.

Before the titanic convulsions
that pushed the sea bed into
the sky there were fish swim-
ming over it. Some geologists
believe the sca bed that be-
came a mountain is still getting
higher.

Mount Everest was “discov-
ered” 99 years ago by an Indian
clerk who had probably never
even seen it. Until then it was
known as Peak XV and was
just one _of the scores of ill-

mapped mountains in the
Himalayas,

computing their heights from
the figure of surveyors, came

Agonies OFA Meat-Hungry |

Briton At The Smithfield
Livestock Show

By BRETT OLIVER
LONDON.

UNTIL the day comes when meat goes off
the ration in Britain, I refuse point-blank to
|see another Smithfield Livestock Show and
| Agricultural Machinery Exhibition.
| Any man who likes lamb and mint sauce,
| and plenty of it and doesn’t like fish particu-
| larly would feel much the same way. Really, |;
| it was excruciating to see some of the world’s
best beef, mutton and pork paraded before |
your eyes and then have to go home to the
leftovers from the one meat spree of the
week.

Six hundred fat and tender livestock! And
all you could do was stand there and dream
of them as succulent steaks and chops, juicy
joints, Christmas hams and breakfast bacon.
For meat-hungry Britons, it was worse still
to gaze into refrigerator display windows at
row on row of prime Australia beef joints,
whole lambs and pork roasts in the Australia
export section. People round me had the same
meditative, almost wistful look. Some swal-
lowed hopelessly. It was too much. I moved
on to inspect countless stands of maliciously
unappetising machinery. It was almost a
relief.

The vast hall at London’s Earls Court is
filled with more machinery than ever. The
country’s agricultural engines have done
wonders since 1945. In that year, the value of
total output of farm machinery was only £19
million, of which no more than 18 per cent.
went overseas. In 1950, production had
soared to £84.7 million—more than 50 per
cent. of it for export. This year, it is expected
to top £100 million, with 53 per cent. of it
going overseas,

It is a good record, and clearly to be seen
in the 2500 exhibits of agricultural machinery
packed into Earls Court.

They don’t stop at tractors, almost synono-
mous with good farming nowadays. Certainly,
there are tractors on show, from. diesel-
powered giants for the toughest jobs to the
little hand-controlled two-wheelers for
market gardens and orchards. There are the
combine harvesters which cut, thresh and
sack corn in one operation, and hundreds of
special implements and fittings for tractors to
enable one machine to do a number of jobs--
all reducing the time factor and increasing
output in relation to cost.





What is really new is the development of
mechanical handling machinery for loading
shifting farm produce. Even up to the last
war this field was still following only vari-
ations of centuries-old practices.

For stockmen there are numerous plants
for dehydrating and preparing foodstuffs
from green and other crops, plants which
make today’s farm buildings more like a
‘actory.

To a townsman, a lot of machinery in the
exhibition conveys little. I must confess that
some of the equipment was still a tangle of
steel rods and arms no matter how long i
stared. Rugged farmers, tweedy and earthy,
saw them as agricultural gems and talked of
\ “self-lift three-point linkage hay rake,” and
“non-acid, multi-purpose trailer crop spray-
ers” with knowledgeable intensity.

I took note of some of the more unusual
and intriguing exhibits. There was a new mill
for grinding, fitted with de-fibring apparatus
and controlled by an electronic brain; a new
cream separator in the form of a small earth-
enware pan which, filled with milk and left
‘or seven or eight hours, enables the milk tc
be poured away leaving the cream in a spe-

cial trap; a vegetable washing machine with
| 500 water jets powered by a three-speed
15 h.p. motor. Then, on another stand stood
i mobile butcher's shop, fitted with hot and
‘old .water supply, refrigeration plant and
electric ventilation.

| I learned that overseas interest in. this
| year’s exhibition is specially big. Record
| orders are expected to follow and 1952 will
| indoubtedly see another -record ‘established
| .n Britain’s export of farm machinery. Buyers
|here from all the farming countries of the
Commonwealth and Empire are impressed
| with advances made since the end of the war.
| The revival of the industry is welcomed
overseas where farm development was set
‘back badly by the war. Increasing efforts
;are being made to boost farm production and
| the results of intense scientific and engineer-
ing research in Britain since 1945 are gradu-
ally transforming farming overseas into a
slickly-organized and high-power business.

British farms are probably the most highly
mechanized in the world to-day. And exports
‘of machinery which have made them that
; Way are paying a double dividend. They help
\increase production overseas, which méaris
more food for importation and they earn more
money to pay for the food.

Tn a wey, it looks encouraging for the meat
ration I was thinking about earlier. Britons
aren’t starving by any means but when they
can go into a butcher’s and’ buy what they
want, they will feel a lot happier. It is enter-
prise like that shown at Earls Court this week



which is_bringing the non-ration day closer.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1951:

Governor Opens Legislative Session

Vr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Couneil :

_ Mr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :

It is with a deep consciousness of the solemnity of this occasion that |
address you. The Legislature and the people of this Island are facing anew
period of development—political, sucial and economic—and against the: back

ground of the last war with its crippling effects on the economy of the Cota-

monwealth and with a foreground of threats of war, if we are to sueceed in our
endeavours it will need the maximum effort of each one of us, a very. much
closer co-operation of all people, less cleverness and more wisdom, and a more
practical application of the Christian principles which we profess.

{t is with this appéal that I greet you and weleome you on your return
to duty and service for the-pgople of this Island. Those of you who previously
have had the honour And privilege of being members of the Legislature will
I am sure, continue to give the benefit of your counsel and your more mature
experience of affairs. Those who are new to the political life of the Island
will rapidly appreciate; as a statesman once said, that successful Government
is essentially synthetic. In the crucible of the Legislature we hope to fuse
together the aims and the aspirations of our community into one composite
whole. But “the heat needed.for this process is the heat of anxiety to serve
and not that. of controversy or of seetional hostility or of personal interests.”

APPOINTMENTS
| regret to inform you that Sir Dudley Leacock has resigned his appoint-
ment as a member of the Exeeutive Council on general health grounds. His
services to this Island in many eapacities have received well deserved praise
from all sections of the community and were fittingly recognised by His
Majesty the King in the last Birthday Honours by the award of a Knighthood.
1 wish him a very happy and tranquil retirement.
| have (a) provisionally appointed the Honourable John Chandler,
ree President of the Legislative Council, as a member of the Executive
Council;
(b) appointed the Honourable H. A, Cuke; C:B.B., M.L.C., to be a
member of the Executive Committee; and ,
(¢) on the nomination of the leader of the majority party in the
House of Assembly, | have appointed the following four House members
to be members of the Executive Committee :—
Mr.,.G. Hl. Adams
Dr. H. G. Cummins
Mr. M. E. Cox, and
Mr. F. L. Waleott.
Mr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Couneil :
| have appointed Mr. Campbell Wylie to be a provisional member of the
Legislative Council in place of Mr, F. BE. Field.
Mr. President and Honourable Members of the Legislative Council;
Mr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :
GENERAL
There is before us a tremendous volume of work and a host of difficult: prob-
lems. Those that come to mind are, in alphabetical order, certain constitutional
questions the Civil Service, the Cost of Living, a Deep Water Harbour, Finan-
cial Policy, Hospital Development, Housing, Lrrigation, Loeal Government and
Public Health, Office accommodation for Government Departments, Population,
the Port of Bridgetown, Production and Subsidization of foodstuffs, Secondary
Industries, School building p: -g ‘amme and Teehnical Education.
I.do not intend to atter:p a complete survey, and, therefore, | haye selected
a number of these items for brief consideration, put their selection does not
imply that the others are not of similar importance. ' would only add that the
opinions I express are entirely my own responsibility and, again, I seek your
indulgence if unwittingly I offend in word any of your traditions or unwritten
rules.

CIVIL SERVICE

I propose first to make some reference to the Civil Service, Following the
reorganisation of departmental staffs carried out during the last session, some
progress: has been made in sending officers overseas for further training and in
obtaining the services of overseas officers to train local staff. 1 am aware that
more needs to be done on a*broader and on a long term basis, but the pressure
of work over the last twelve months unfortunately has precluded this. | 1 am
responsible for the delays, but I haye endeavoured to deal personally with each
department individually rather than delay the completion of an overall plan.
1 can only say that L hope to complete the proposals by the end of January.

1 do not believe the increasing volume and complexity of public business
is appreciated by members of the general public. In the past, to a great extent,
each Colony was interested almost solely in its own affairs, but in the last decade,
the development of international relations, conventions, conferences and the
specialization in almost every brahich of the public service, has thrown a tre-
mendous burden on administrations, and in Berbados with its limited number of
specialist officers, the load has slowed down the speed of achievement, This is
no reflection on serving officers 6%, in particular, on officers who have acted
in the more senior posts. Far too often | have had to demand that they should
endeavour to carry out many of the duties of two posts and, therefore, have
placed on them an unreasonable yolume of work, But it is essential to refer
again to the basic reasons for this apparent neglect of the administration in
filling vacancies.

When | spoke on this matter eighteen months ago, | referred to the neces-

sity to review the terms and conditions of service of professional and other
senior offices and to bring them as far ag our finances would allow to the market
evel,
. Te: my first two years of service in Barbados, I have been, for periods of a
year or upwards, without the services‘of six substantive Heads of Departments
‘and other senior officers. At the end of this month, I shall lose the services of
another Head of Department whose post I have endeavoured, without success, to
fill during the last twelve months. Three serving Heads of Departments have
applied for transfers to other administrations. The most important department
of this Government from an economie point of view is the Agricultural Depart-
ment. If you Study the rainfall of Barbados over the last one hundred years
and compare the crops of the same period, you will find that we are getting
much bigger crops than ever before. There can hardly be one planter who
would not admit that this is due in the main to the work (theoretical, practical
and instructional) of the officers of the Department of Agriculture. Let me
tell you the staff positon. Theré has. been a vacancy fe- a Deputy Director of
Agriculture for just over two years and there are tvo other vacancies awaiting
recruitment, i.¢., Veterinary Officer aud Senicr Peasant Agricultural Instructor.
The posts of Government Analyst, the former holder of which went on leave
prior to retirement in May, 1950, and of Co-op» rative, Oxheer, which was ereated
in August, 1950, have only recently been filied. In addition, one senior officer
has applied for a transfer to a Colony where leave passages are provided, and
another has for the time*being withdrawn the application for transfer which
he had submitted,

BARBADOS ADVOCATE



This is‘all very insidious, for the progressive reduction in the effieieney of
the Agricultural Department would not be quickly seen. Nearly two years ago,
difficulties were being experienced in reeruiting senior qualified teaching staff.
The considerable number of changes in staff in the last twelve months and the
renewed difficulty im reernitment, demands re-consideration of the problem.
These difficulties oceur in many departments which are just as important in their
own sphere of administration. | must emphasise it is not only the question of
re-ruitment, for there is also the problem of retaining serving officers. We have
end-avoured aS a temporary expedient to fill some yacancies by short term
ageeements on. noy-pensionable terms and at very much higher salaries. We
have had to do it, but it has caused much bitterness—and in my opinion legiti
mately so--among the serving officers, many of whom have given a lifetime ot
service to this Government

What are the objections to the review IT have proposed? | haye been told
we cannot afford to pay more, or that if the emoluments of professional officers
are raised there will be pressure for all Government employees of all grades to
have their salaries raised, or that the Governor is endeavouring to get bett»
salaries for officers from overseas and so keep Barbadians out of the best jobs

Let me deal briefly with each objection. While I shall deal with the future
budgetary position in a moment. I can say I have no doubt that this island can
atford to bring its civil service salaries and terms and conditions of service uy
to, say, British Guiana standards. But [ must emphasise that the real approach
should be rather—can Barbados afford to allow its standards in administration, |
in the scientific field and in the many professional fields, to deteriorate to the
lowest in the Caribbean? The procession of senior staff (Barbadians and others)
trom this Island to better paid jobs elsewhere must be arrested. As Head of the
Administration, | have a responsibility to the Legislature and to the people of
this Island to maintain an efficient public service, but 1 cannot carry out my
task with a discontented civil service or a service with qualified staff who, on
financial grounds, are compelled to seek other fields of employment

The next objection has been that it would be unfair to the junior staff to |
improve the terms and conditions of service of the senior staff. That argument
in general, unfortunately, won the day at the last revision of salaries and that
is, of course, why we are in such a parlous condition now, Salaries and wages
and terms end conditions of service in the junior branch of the civil service
compare favourably with those in private employment, and rightly so, but those
of the senior branch of the service are poor in comparison with almost any other
field of employment. Furthermore, the salary seales and superscale posts in
the civil service are quite unbalanced and need coordination. The average
salary of a Head of Department is not much more than $5,000 a year, whereas
a clerical officer can hope to earn roughly 60% of that amount. Surely, it is
obvious that that percentage is completely out of line with the eomparative
responsibilities of the posts’?

.

The third objection is that the Governor wishes to ruise the emoluments of
overseas officers and so retain their services in this Island, to the detriment of |
Barbadians. I would have hoped that in two years | would have earned the
contidence of this Civil Service. I do not practice discrimination of that kind
But the problem is not that of attracting and retaining overseas officers. The
same arguments apply to Barbadians and other West Indians, ‘Too often, and
for too long, the argument has been advanced that if you keep the salaries low in
Barbados, jobs will be kept for Barbadians. What is the result? There are
many qualified Barbadians who have found the local terms of service unattrac
tive and now are enjoying more attractive posts in nearly every part of the
world, A

A few weeks ago, the House of Assembly passed an Address expressing
general agreement with the terms of the Holmes Report and in view of that
measure of agreement, I have again appointed a Committee to examine the
matter. T trust that its report will receive the early and the sympathetic eon
sideration of the Legislature. : ;

POSITION OF CIVIL, SERVANTS

It is inevitable that in a small island problems of personalities should
arise, but | have been distressed at the practice of abusing Civil Servants in
privileged circumstances which do not permit them to reply or to defend them-
selves, Let it not be thought for one moment that | am trying to interfere with
the rights of free speech and fair criticism. But it is axiomatic that rights im
ply obligations and there is a world of difference between fair criticism of the
operations of a Government department and invective against individual Civil
Servants. I hope the practice will cease.

PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION.
_ The Public Service Commission Act has been placed on the Statute Book.
It is the intention to set up the Commission not later than the Ist of April next

* DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS,

I intend to propose the establishment of a new department of Government
Every modern and progressive state has a department responsible for the collee-
tion, interpretation and distribution of the statistics of the country. It would |
not require a large staff and would not be unduly expensive. Tt may be prefer. |
able to select Barbadians for trainjng and, therefore, it may not be possible to
establish the Department for two years, but | hope meantime to arrange for a
quarterly bulletin of statistics to be published by the administration |

GOVERNMENT OFFICES

There is an urgent need for final decisions to be taken regarding new Gov-
ernment offices. It appears to me that we shall not reach finality until a firm
decision is taken as to whether it is intended to erect new buildings to accom. |
modate thé Honourable Legislative Council, the House of Assembly and the |
departments of the Colonial Secretary afd the Attorney General. A Joint |
Select Committee considered the proposal just after the outbreak of the last |
war and réached the conclusion that *
he postponed’.

The difficulty of obtaining a suitable site has always been a problem, but
with some diffidence | throw out the suggestion that an excellent site is avail- |
ble at the east end of Government House grounds. There are several acres of
mainly rocky ground which cannot economically be developed agriculturally
and adequate maintenance is difficult. In my opinion, the use of that site for |
thé purpose | have suggested will not interfere in any way with the beauty of
ihe grounds and the site is so far distant from the house that there would not
oe any inconvenience to anyone. '

THE PORT OF BRIDGETOWN

This brings me to the question of the present conditions in the Port o1
Rridgetown, The position has become yery serious and over recent weeks [ have
had informal discussions with representatives of employers and employees. From
my personal contact with ships’ masters and shipping representatives, I am
mformed that the Port of Bridgetown is considered to be the least efficient and
vonsequeitly the most expensive in the Caribbean. The result has been that one
Kuropean company has imposed a surcharge of 10% on all cargo for Barbados,
while three North American companies have given notice of a surcharge of
15% There is also a real danger that the larger elass of ships will restrict thei
alls here as there is a shortage of ships and haridling time is particularly vital
at present, The effect of such action would be that our imports would cost us
ynore because of additional freight and treble handling charges, while our re
‘eipts from our exports would be reduced for similar reasons, with the result
that food and other priees would rise. We are not faced with a dispute, but with
a erisis which, if not averted, will affect, adversely everyone in this Island

I believe that employers and employees can yet the situation. At
present — it seems to me — that representatives of both sides rarely meet ex
vept when there is a dispute, There is an urgent necessity for them to meet more
often and to move closer in a ‘‘partnership of goodwill’’ in the port. I have
suggested that a ‘‘good offices’ committee at the highest level should meet at the
earliest possible moment to consider the reaséns for the present erisis and to
thake recommendations towards a solution. [ do not wish to intervene unneces
warily; but 1 am prepared, if I am approached by both parties, viz., the Barbados
Workers’ Union and the Shipping and Mercantile Association, to art as chairman
to such a Committee and to, use my best endeavours to assist in solving the
»roblem

_ The North American companies have announced their intention of im
posing a siurcharge of 15% as from the Ist of January next, but I appeal to them,
through their local agents, to defer the implementation of that decision for
three months to vive ws an opportunity to remove the stigma and regain the
reputation of efficiency which the port undeniably has lost

HOMES
refer to Housing wich L prefer to designate ‘‘Homes’’, The Census
Report of 1946 with its summary of dwellings and rooms provides much useful
information in relation to the veeds of the situation, and it should now be
possible to prepare a lon plan. 1 say “long term’’ for it is not possible
wnancialiy for any country to carry out a major housing programme in a short
term of years. er nrgrhge

Much has been done by way of loans for repairing and improving houses
— from the Labour Welfare und; by housing schemes from publie funds
both by providing prepared sites for building and by building homes at low
rentals, A Civil Serviee Housing Scheme is to be submitted to the Legislature
in the immediate future.

Sor the present, the Labour Welfare Fund provides only for loans for the

‘alterations, additions or repairs to a house.”’
inadequaie for any other purpose.
T-would hope that some priority could now be given to the
homes, I believe that Government ‘‘should favour awnership and its policy
should be to *‘induce as many people as possible to become owners.’’ Good homes
are the foundations of a happy community and there can be ne doubt that when
people own property theiselves, they gain in self respect and become more use-
ful citizens.

I realize that larger loans vil! condition the rate of progress, but I trust that

n the long term plan which is necessary, some funds will be made available to
uevease the number of owners of homes in this Island.
PRODUCTION OF FOOD
‘ommon world problem i; the inereasiny cost of living. In Barbados
there has been a substantial in: rease in price levels of our imports und of our
domestic production and already we are aware of further potential increases.
Our chief food imports come ivom Canada, the United States, Australia and
sritish Guiana, and the rise in the cost of living in those countries is reflected
in the prices we have to pay. Our own exports have increased substantially in
price which affects the eost of Hving in other countries ;

There are many reasons for this economic roundabout, probably the strong.
est being the threat of war with its rearmament progranime and consequent
inflation. In Barbados, as in qany other countries, we have endeavoured to
cushion the-rise in prices of certain essential foodstuffs by subsidization, but
as elsewhere, the substantial increases in price levels have reduced the effective.
ness of such policy, It is my considered opinion that we cannot afford to in-
evease the recurrent cost of subsidization which already represents a charge
of over 10% of our normal budgst.

There are, of course, erertain foodstuffs which we cannot grow ourselves
and the general view ap ,cars to be that it is unlikely that we could grow other
foodstuffs any chenxper than we can import them. T may have the confidence
ot ignorance, but ! ain not satis.ied to accept that view.

PIG INDUSTRY

L refer in particular to the 2.000 tons of salted pork which we are importing
every year from North America and which we are also subsidizing by over
$800,000 a year. There are two private schemes of pig production and market-
ing of which | am aware and | hope that Government will be prepared to assist
the ventures and to encourage jroducers to develop the industry, not only for
domestic consumption but for tle export of hams and bacon in the Caribbean

CENTRAL MILK DEPOT

I deeply regret that the proposed scheme for a Central Milk Depot and
Greamery has met with so many difficulties. From a food production point of
view this is of the highest priority. Quite apart from the potential increased
production of milk, the seheme would also result in the production of more meat,
Another factor is that the by-product of pen manure is of vital importance to
the sugar industry.

producers will reconsider the matter and come forward with alternative pro
posals which they would be prepared to'support, me

‘ " FISHING INDUSTRY

The recent disaster whereby the greater part of the fishing fleet on the
Leeward coast has been destroyed, affects the fishermen very seriously and food
sroduction substantially, For some time previously there had been discussions
regarding mechanization of some vessels which would result

} f in a substantial
snerease in the quantity of fish caught.

‘ The disaster has expedited: consideration
of this matter and the Fisheries Advisory Committee is now consid ering a scheme
to include mechanization of some of the new wessels to be built The question
of the refrigeration and marketiong of the supply of fish above immediate mar-
ket requirements has also to be considered, ;
VEGETABLES

As regards green vegetable crops, I am advised that any deerease in the

present high costs can be sought in two ways —
(a) by encouraging the prowers to produce more ;

es (b) by decreasing the present high costs of distribution

This would necessitate the establishment of a central marketing depot with
cold storage facilities and these matters are now being investigated. z

LABOUR AND WELFARE FUND
]1 have made some referenee to the Labour Welfare Fund, but
like to read to vou the summary of conclusions ot



I would ;
the Manager after nine |

months operation of the Housing Loans Scheme: |

(a) The increased cost of materials has had an unfortunate effect
upon the rate and period of repayment of loans: : '
The worst aspect of housing conditions as revealed by inspection
is overcrowding ;
Most houses in respect of which applications for loans were made,
were in a bad state of disrepair ;
d) There is encouraging evidence of
workers to repay their loans; :
e) Owners and managers of estates and factories have been active
mid helpful in their co-operation. Without their assistance the
scheme would not have worked.
PRICE STABILIZATION RESERVE FUND
No call has had to be made on the Price Stabilization Reserve Fund since
its inception, but some small reduetion is being made in the annual rate of
contribution in certain years for the benefit of the Labour Welfare Fund.
There appears to be a body of opinion that considers that in view of the ex-
ternal “rolling agreement” with the United Kingdom, there is not the same
need for such a Keserve Fund as before. I do moy share that view. We may
well have a period of droughts, in whieh ease this Fund may be essential to
help cushion the dustry over difficult days,
CAPITAL REHABILITATION RESERVE FUND.
As js weil known, the purpose of the Capital Rehabilitation Reserve Fund
‘s primarily to bring factory efficiency to the highest level possible. A survey
of factory requirements was undertaken when the scheme was initiated, and in
the last five years much has been done to achieve the purpose of the Fund, But
it is clear that an up to date survey of present and future requirements 1s
necessary becanse if any acta! sr potential free funds are available, consider-
ation might be given to the requirements of prodtcers who presently can only

Wr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly :
GOVERNMENT FINANCES.
1 turn now to consideration of the future budgets of Barbados, I do not

intend to go into a lot of detail, but to indicate what I believe, with the experi-
ence I have gained in the last two years, to be a sound financial policy. We
are of course a part of the sterling area and naturally the strength or weakness
of sterling is reflected in our economy. The iast world war and a current re-
armament programme have weakened the Commonwealth, but if war ean be
averted [T am not unhopeful of some strengthening of sterling and, therefore,
of our own economy.
RAINFALL AND REVENUE.

Rainfall and Government Revenue in Barbados are directly related. This
can be ascertained from a comparative table of annual rainfall, crops and
revenue. Last season we had the highest rainfall since 1897 and the biggest crop
ever recorded-—187,000 tons. This is reflected in our eurrent receipts from
customs and excise which will exceed $6,000,000 and in direct taxation—income
tax—which we will collect next year whieh will reach a new peak. The previous
two seasons also reflected above average rainfalls, above average crops and good
revenues. We have had good rains so far this vear and again a good crop—
presently estimated at 165,000 tons—is anticipated. But these four crops are
above average and are giving, | feel, a false sense of security to the general

public and too many people are forgetting the bad years of small crops and lfirming the decision Their Hon-

limited finances. The weakness of a one crop economy must be obvious and

although the development of secondary industries must be encouraged, our}simple. The men who are boat-|

financial policy must be primarily related to agriculture
I have, therefore, sat at the feet of the Director of Agriculture, of Sir John
Saint and other agriculturists and endeavoured to determine future prospects
assuming minimum and maximum rainfalls, further development of new cane
var'cties and the best use of the land. I have summarised their advice as follows :—
(a) It is unlikely that we shall ever fall below a crop of 80,000 tons
in the future ;
(b) It would be reasonable to assume an average crop of the order
of 150,000 tons in the next five years ;
(c) With optimum conditions, a maximum crop of the order of 200,000
tons could be achieved at the end of ten years.
FINANCIAL POLICY
| have endeavoured to translate those opinions into financial and economic
poliey for the next five years and these are my conclusions :
(a) Higher priority must be given to directly productive schemes;
(b) More must be done to improve the productivity of the 17,000
peasants who presently grow about 15% of the sugar erop;

(e) Purther assistance should be given to smallholders to grow moré
feod and to keep livestock; .. ..

(ad) Lrrigation schemes must be made a live issue;

(e) Secondary industries, however small, must be encouraged, if

necessary by loans;
(f) More assistance should be given by Government, and other inter-
ested parties, to develop the tourist trade ;
(g) Reeurrent expenditure should as far as possible be limited to the
moving average revenue of the previous five years ;
More recurrent revenue will be needed if we are to go ahead with
major development schemes such as a Deep Water Harbour,
improved and extended educational facilities, improved hospitaliza-
tion and extension of social services;

(i) The Revenue Equalization Fund, which has been approved with a

token contribution of $150,000 this year, should be built up in
‘above average’’ crop years by fixed annual eontributions and by
the transfer of, say, 50% of any budget surpluses, so that in bad
years we can maintain the current level of public services;
(j) The General Revenue Balance should not be allowed to fall below
a third of the annual revenue during the next five years;
(k) Expenditure against loans should, as far as possible, be limited
to schemes which are directly remunerative ;
RECURRENT REVENUES

| do not propose to detain you by explaining in detail each of these eoneln-
sions, but | want to refer to the item relating to the necessity to obtain addi-
tional recurrent revenne if we are to embark on & major development pro-
gramme,

Recently my attention has been drawn to articles in the Press regarding the
incidenee of taxation in Barbados. | agree at owee that there is a number of
potential taxpayers who are evading the income tax net and that is why the
Department has been reorganised, additional staff provided and emphasis placed
on the preparation of statistics.

But the implication in the original article that public services are pro-
vided, or could be provided, primarily from direct taxation is misleading. 1
enticipate the total revenue this year will reach nearly $72,250,000 of which
only roughly one third will be derived from income tax. The remaining $5,000,-
000 will be received from indirect taxation, Customs and Excise duties paid by
ail sections of the community, and from fees, licences, ete., collected from the
general publi

To return to my main point regarding the raising of additional revenue.
In the last twelve months a review of all revenue items of the Estimates has been
undertaken excluding Head I (Customs and Excise) and Head IT (Taxation).
They include licences, fees for services and other items which have not been re-
vised for many years. There is a legitimate case for some increases. But from a
brief survey of the items, | do not consider we could anticipate colleeting more
than an additional $150,000 annually. As regards Customs and Excise duties,
ii would be possible to raise more revenue on many items, but although there
are very few items which are not related in some way to the cost of living, we
may haye to review this souree of revenue. An fierease in company tax would
vot be substantially effective for most of the capital employed in Barbados
is local and the shareholders are assessed individually. As regards rates of
meome tax on individuals, my view is that no change should be considered until
the Income Tax Department has repaired most of those meshes in its net whieh
are broken and we are satisfied that those who should be paying are, in fact,
assessed.

There is an alternative to increasing customs duties and other taxes. Tt is
io reduce expenditure and I press for reeonsideration of my previous suggestion
for the progressive reduction of present subsidization over a term of years. |The
funds which are saved could be used for financing a development loan. T admit
that less subsidization means an increase in the cost of living, but T see no other
alternatives than those T have mentioned

CONCLUSION
Wr. President and Honowrable Members. of, the Legislative Council :

“Mr. Husbanas needs no recom-
mendation from me or from any
of us as Speaker inasmuch as he
has already presided over our des-
tinies with the dignity which we
expect from the Speaker of a Leg-
islative Assembly, and I may add
with extra dignity, if such a thing
is possible—that one would expect
from the Speaker of a Legislative
Assembly that is the second oldest
in the Colonial world.

“I go further, if one were to
read the old debates of the Assem-
bly that had taken place over the
past 300 years in the life of Bar-
bados, one could not find to-day

any diminution in the care witn
which the proposed Speaker has
conducted as our guardian, the

affairs of this Assembly.

“Mr. Husbands has shown the
attention to detail and procedure
as well as the observations of the
rules of the House that one ex-
pects from the holder of an office
as old as ours.

Too Dignified

“Perhaps I should not say this,
but there had been times when 1
personally thought that he was too
dignified and careful as a Speaker.
One does not want to draw invi-
dious comparisons, but it is far
better to show respect to a rigid
Speaker rather than to a lax
Speaker.

“If Mr. Husbands continues in



the way he has begun, I have no
doubt that for the next 40 or 50.
years, we or our successors would

have to
Speaker.”
Mr, J. E, T. Brancker seconded
the proposal made by the Senior
Member for St. Joseph, not mere-
ly because he was the second old-
est member in the Chamber, he
said but, because of his personal
feelings in the matter.

The re-election of Mr. Husbands
as Speaker would provide the
utmost satisfaction to the vast
majority of the inhabitants of the
colony. The electorate of St, Peter
had showed their appreciation by
returning him as senior member
for his parish,

During the past session, he had
studied parliamentary procedure
from the Imperial Home of parlia-
mentary democracy. He had profit-
ed as they had expected he would,
from the two trips he had made
to the Mother of Parliaments.
The fact that he had taken his
duties so seriously during the
past session was an indication that
he would do so even more serious-
ly during this session.

He was therefore happy to sec-
ond the motion made by the hon-
ourable senior member for St.
Joseph.

may mean kidney trouble

A function of the kidneys is to eliminate
harmful impurities from the system. If the
kidneys grow sluggish, these imnpurities—
in particular excess acid—-accumulate and
settle, and become a cause of pain and
suffering in joints and muscles.

The way to tackle the root of the trouble
is to help the kidneys, They should be
toned up with De Witt's Pills — the medicine
made specially for this purpose. De Witt's

Pills have a cleansing and
antiseptic action on the kidneys that

brings them back to perform their
natural function properly.

” Pe Witt’s Pills are a very well-tried

remedy. They are sold all over the world
and we have many letters from sufferers
telling of relief gained, after years of
suffering after taking De Witt's Pills.
They act on the kidneys quickly. Why
not them for x trouble? Go to
your chemist and obtain a supply to-day.

Valentine

From HAROLD DALE

SYDNEY, Dec. 18.
Amidst scenes of extraordinary enthusiasm, West
Australia beat the West Indies by one wicket at Perth

to-day. Excellent bowling

by Valentine and John. Trim

had steadily mowed down the state batsmen through the
day until with the last pair together and 48 still needed to

win,

class victory.

But Allan Edwards, stood in
their way and proved immovable,
until the game was won. His
great innings contained 11 fours.

It was 4 pity that Trim was not
brought back to bow! at the anxi-
ous, Dunn during this vital last
wicket stand, especially as he had
done so much to give the West
Indies their chance by taking
three for nine in one spell

_ Harriman Urges
Full Speed Alhead
For N.A.T.O. In “52

PARIS, Dec. 18.
The Mutual Security Adminis-
trator, W. Averell Harriman, plead-
ed full speed ahead in European
Rearmament, and General Eisen-
hower pledged the full assistance
of S.H.A.P.E. Headquarters in re-
ceiving maximum goal by 1952.
The statement was contaimed in

the long awaited report of the
temporary Committee of ihe
N.A.T.O. (North Atlantic Treaty

Organization) Harriman said, “The
N.A.T.O. can achieve during the
next year an impressive increase
in its defensive form which will
provide greatly increased deter-
rent to aggression. But Harriman
warned that member governments
and agencies must start work im-

mediately on “certain urgently
required measures.”
Russia virtually promised to

take its seat in the new Commis-
sion, even if forced to vote against
the resolution creating it, due to
continued reference to the Baruch
Plan, Westerners quickly opposed
the Polish Plan yesterday, which

would create’ the Commission
without any instruction. Under the
Western Plan, the Commission

would get to work within 30 days
of final Assembly approval.

B29 CRASHES
INTO HOUSE,
POWER LINES

SHREVEPORT, Louisiana,
Dec, 18,

Four men were killed when a
B.29 bomber crashed and burned |
near here, but fast work by the |
rescue crews who pulled the vic-
tims from the flaming wreckage
is credited with the saying of
Nine other crewmen.

Ambulance and crash truck
crews sped to the crashed super-
fortress within three minutes
after the big bomber roared out
of low-lying fog clipped a house,
sniped through electric power
lines, and smashed into the main
highway near Barksdale Air Force
Base l\ast night,

An unidentified man and his
wife were slightly injured when
a bomber sheared off the top of
their house about 200 yards from
the highway.

W. Berlin’s Message
To The Krentlin

BERLIN, Dec. 18.

The holly, carols, and brightly
‘orated store windows in Allied
se@ors of Berlin form the West's
Christmas card to the Kremlin,
There is a belief here that it gives
the traditional greeting of
peace and goodwill” to all peo-
ples on the Soviet side with more
significance than any diplomatic
phrase or gesture could manage.

West Berliners have learned to
believe again in the warmth and
promise of the Christmas message.
This is seen in the thronging
crowds along the main thorough- |
fare, the Christmas trees outside |
stores in colourful displays and |
above all in good humour and the |
people’s cheerfulness.—U.P. |

title

as if the

big year for youth.
tare on the march in lawr
Favourite for the women’s
will almost certainly be Maureen
Connolly, only 17 when she won
the U.S. title in September

From Australia two prodigies
are likely to arrive—Ken Rose-
wall and Lew Hoad, both now 17.

Britain’s contribution w ill
surely be Robert Wilson, Britain's
junior champion, only just 16.

Prodigies Then

But there is nothing new under
the Wimbledon sun.

Betty Nuthall, Who played her
first Wimblelon when 15, was

cnly 16 when she defeated the
U.S. champion, Mrs. Mallory
there.

The record is not likely to be
surpassed. Miss Lottie Dod was
cnly 15 when she won in 1887 the
first of her five championships.
Later she became English golf
champion.

Miss Nuthall, a travel agent in
New York, is now on her way
back there after a holiday with
her mother, Mrs. Stuart Nuthall,
ot Richmond. She said that com-
petitive tennis should begirrat 14.
She herself first used a racket at
eight, and played in a junior tour-
nament a year later.

Nought For Plenty

Little “Sonny” Ramadhin
nought for 143 in a Test. What
can the matter be?

One of the Lancashire men at
the cricket coaching conference in
Shropshire during the week-end
was telling me of Ramadhin’s ex-
traordinary proficiency with the
catapult—skill which entertains
the small boys of Oldham durihg
the League cricket season.

We had come to regard him as
equally deadly with a cricket ball
—but now this!

Over Bowled

There are three likely explana-
tions. Probably the truth lies in
a combination of them:

(1) Ramadhin, with big fel-
low Valentine, has been over-
bowled in this and the previous

Test. At Brisbane he _ sent
down 64 eight-ball overs in
the two innings: now at Syd-

ney 41 in one. A lot of bowling
for a man not physically stur-
dy

(2) The Sydney wicket was
less kind to Ramadhin than ours
in England.

(3) Australians,
way of attacking slow bowl-
ing, are getting used to him.
The “moral” of it all—how

difficult is it for two bowlers—in
this case Ramadhin and Valentine

to “carry” a Test match side.
For Jack Young
A personal item: Middlesex
have granted next_season’s Whit-
sun match at Lord’s \ against
Sussex to Jack Young, now 39.

His 157 wickets last season ex~
ceeded those of anyone else save
Appleyard. of Yorkshire, with
200.

Young is not only a great slow

He suggested positive action to be taken and proclaimed his belief that we ran succeed in our endeavours to progress "if we have faith in ourselves and in each other and do not Hindi before the challenge %  >f the future." He was particularly constructive in his suggestions tor the financial and economic policy which Barbados should adopt for the next five years. In this sphere the Governor can in addition to the authority which comes from bus hii;ii office speak with detailed experience as an expert in financial matters And his recommendations are the more valuable for this reason. What does he recommend'' • r priority must be given to directly productive ichemei Everyoneagreea. More must be done to improve the productivity of the 17,000 peasants who grow about 15^ Of the suijur crop. Again there is general i ment. Further assistance should be given to small-holders to grow mure food and to keep livestock Irrigation schemes must be made a live issue: secondary Industrie*. ItQVrever small, must be encouraged, if necessary by loans These are all good objectives which will win support And then comes the Tourist Trade. What does the Governor say? More assistance should be given by G >Vt mmenl and other interested parties to develop the tourist trade Can anyone denv that this is excellent advice? The remainder of his pjgjgl %  Uoni are concerned with revenue und expenditure. Recurrent expenditure should as far as possible be limited to the moving average revenue of the previous five years.

People round me had the same meditative, almost wistful look. Some swalwed hopelessly. It was too much. I moved nri to inspect countless stands of maliciously unappetising machinery. It was almost a relief. The vast hall at London's Earls Court is tilled with more machinery than ever. The country's agricultural engines have done wonders since 1945. In that year, the value of total output of farm machinery was only il 19 million, of which no more than 18 per cent. went overseas. In 1950. production had >ared to X84.7 million—morethan 50 per cent, of it for export. This year, it is expected to top £100 million, with 5;t per cent, of it I-mug overseas. It is a good record, and clearly to be seen m the 2500 exhibits of agricultural machinery packed Into Earls Court. They don't stop at tractors, almost synonoiious with good farming nowadays. Certainly, 'here are tractors on show, from diesel.tnwered giants for the toughest jobs to tht iittle hand-controlled two-wheelers for %  narket gardens and orchards.
