Senate Charges

By ROBERT F. LOFTUS
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19.
The Senate Investigating Sub-Commi:tee charged that the
Defence Department and the Civilian Mobilization Chiefs

are gambling with national security by letting United
States industry turn out too many automobiles, refrigera-



tors, and gadgets, instead of planes, tanks and guns.
The Sub- -committee, headed by
the Texas Democrat Lyndon B.

Johnson, says that they are trying
to give his nation both guns and
butter at the risk of being caught
half-armed if World War III
should explode in the near future.

Defence Mobilizer, Charles E.
Wilson, denies it. He says that
civilian production has never
been allowed to interfere with re-
armament, that the U.S. Armed

Communists May
Block Talks On
War Prisoners

PANMUNJOM, Dee. 19.

The Communists indicated that they may block all fur-

ther talks on the release of war prisoners, including 3,198
Americans, until after Christmas.

Alan Winnington, the Communist newsman who acts

as sort of unofficial spokesman for the Red truce delega-



tion, charged that the list of 132,474 Communist prison-
ers, furnished by the United Nations yesterday was in-
complete and useless ‘
He said that the list was entirely in English whieh
cannot be translated accurately into either Chinese ‘or
Korean, and contained neither unit identifications nor home
towns

with many odd titles during her
publie career. But when it comes
to “Glamour” her American sisters
Tun away with allthe honours.

A girl who was recently elected
“Miss Sewer Cleaner” in Detroit
said that th@ugh she did not think
much of the title, it would prob-
ably help -her career. The same
may be said of another American
girl who was elected “Miss Alum-

Deep in the City

HE most interesting point
about the arrangement to
underwrite the £5,000,000 issue

for the Manchester Ship Canal is
that the debenture stock is not re-
deemable until 1966, by which
time the Iriam Docks viaduct will,
of course, have ceased to a in-
cluded in the area of the Canal,
and the stretch between Warring-
ton and Warburton High Level
Bridge will be in private owner-
ship. This is bound to affect the
issue, and unless Manchester Cor-
poration is prepared to increase the

¥° OO
i
‘





percentage of the redemption yield,
the underwriting will be no easy
matter.

I AM always pleased when wo-

men suddenly grow tired of
being lectured and badgered by

USPECTING, from information
received under cover of dark-

ing sticks of utility liquorice (con-
taining phasmenol) without a
licence. Food Spy No, 348712 ap-
proached him in the disguise of a
schoolboy. The spy purchased a
stick and started to eat it, But it
was a bootlace, and so, instead of
being prosecuted under Regulation
871/C/14/H.234.bf., the vendor had
to be prosecuted under Regulation
R/819/17/Cd.17.8.5.n1/46/K. It was
then discovered by a committee of
12 analysts that there was no
phasmenol in the bootlace, So the

End-of-term examinations

S the end-ol-term examina-
tions draw near at Narkover,
there is the customary degrading
spectacle of organised attempts to

get a preliminary glimpse of a

papers.

It is known that several false
sets are being printed, to put the
boys off the trail. It is also known
that many of the masters are
willing for a _ consideration, to
divulge some of the questions they
themselves are setting. But the
whele thing is complicated by an
elaborate system of double-treble-
and quadruple-crossings. Behind |

it all, and not particularly aloof, is |

the figure of the Headmaster, who

usually makes a good thing out of |

deliberately misleading both mas-
ters and boys. In fact, the main
use of these examinations seems
to be to keep, money in circulation.

Sorrel In Short Supply

Barbados had one of its smallest sorrel crops.

There is very little sorrel offered for sale along the streets
' Manufacturers of aerated drinks, who generally bottle
sorrel at Christmas, drove all over the island in seareh of

sorrel. They got very little.

B.W.I. Sugar
Association
Meeting

THE Annual Meeting of B.W.1.
Sugar Association (Inc.) was held
on the 17th December, 1951, at the
Treasury Building, Port-of-Spain
Trinidad.

The Associations
were the following: —

Antigua Sugar Association (Inc).
Director: Hon. A. Moody Stuart,



represented

O.B.E., M.C., Adviser; Mr, J. C.
McMichael,

Barbados Sugar Producers’ As-

O.B.E., Mr. W. B. Pyett.

B.W.1. Sugar Association Staff
Mr. A. D. Mitchell, Adviser: Asst.
Secretary.

The Directors for the year

1951/52 are the abeve gentlemen
except that Mr. J. C. McMichael
has taken the place of the Hon. A.
Moody Stuart, O.B.E., M.C., as Di-
rector for Antigua, and the Hon.
R.L.M. Kirkwood is the Jamaica
Director, Mr. O. M. Henzell having
acted for him on this occasion.
Chairman Re-elected

The Hon. H. E. Robinson was
unanimously re-elected Chairman
for the third time, having served
in this capacity for the past three
years,

Other formal business was done
and the Hon. G. D. L. Pile, O.B.E.,
of Barbados, who had been Chair-
man prior to the Hon, H. E.
Robinson, for five years was elected
an Honorary Member of the As-
sociation as a token of the esteem
in which he is held by the Direc-
tors,

Unfortunately, the current Com-
monwealth Sugar Negotiations in
the United Kingdom have not yet
been completed and the meeting
was therefore unable to do more
than note the progress made to
date.

In view of the fact that the
Eighth Gongress of the Internation-
al Society of Sugar Cane Technol-
ogists is being held in the British
West Indies in 1953, it was de-
cided not to hold the usual B.W.1.
Sugar Technologists’ Conference
next year.

The future of the British West
Indies Sugar Research Scheme
with headquarters at the Imperial
College of Tropical Agriculture
came under discussion in view of
the fact that the first five-year
period will be completed in August

A Xmas Saving of ||DRESS SHIRTS

Mr. “Bob” Cumberbatch, owner
of the Niagara Bottling Factory,

told the Advocate yesterday that
the heavy rains have caused the
shortage of sorrel this year.

Mr, Cumberbatch buys the
sorrel direct from the plantations.
There are six people employed to
cut and dry it. The sorrel is then
placed in stainless steel recepta-
cles where it is steeped in water
for three days. It then goes through

a special process before being
bettled for delivery

Mr. Cumberbatch said that
owing to the short supply this

year he was foreed to buy sorrel
pods at prices ranging from ten
to twelve cents per pound. Last
year sorrel pods were sold at
five and six cents per pound ana
in some cases it could be pur-
chased at four cents a pound.

Bottling Is Slow

He said tnat the prevess of
bottling the sorrel is a slow one
therefore he has never been able
to make as much as he could
sell. This year he will not be abit
to supply more than two-thirds of
his general output. This is be-
cause of the shortage,

Mr. J. A. Martineau of Martin-
eau’s Soda Factory, Bay Street,
said that he travelled all over

the country, but was only abie to
get a very small amount of sorr>
pods,

He said that when asked the
reason of the snortage, some peo-
ple suggest that it is because of
the heavy rains while others com-

plain that the seeds would not
grow They also gave other
reasons.

Mr, Martineau said* that the

quality of the sorrel to-day is not
us good as years ago. In his opinion
the sorrel years ago was more
acid than it is to-day. The acid
sorrel made the better drink,

He said the he helieved that
the ‘ground was not properly
manured otherwise the _ sorrel
would have maintained its high
quality.

A sorrel vendor told the Ad-
vocate that she has found it ex-
tremely difficult to get sorrel
pods,

She said that
customers in the

EXCELLENCY (S GRAVELY UNWELL,

British Virgin Isles
Expert Livestock To
U.S. Virgin Isles

Dr. L. R, Hutson, Chief Vet-
erinary Officer of the Leeward
Islands, told the Advocate yester-
day that it is gratifying to record
that within the last few years
there has been a slow, but never-
theless, steady awakening of live-
stock cdhsciousness in the islands
of Antigua and St, Kitts-Nevis.

He said that there has alWays
Leen a vigorous livestock industry
in the British Virgin Islands and
regular monthly shipments o1
slaughtered livestock are made t)
St. Thomas, U.S, Virgin Islands.
The British Virgin Yslands have
the signal honour of being atc-
credited by the U.S, authorities
as being free of the cattle tick—
this as a result of the application
of a rigid tick eradication pro-
gramme.

In the island of Montserrat, a
scheme has been recently drawn
up for the rehabilitation of the
livestock industry and this he said,
has been submitted for approval,

Cattle Breeding

In Antigua, work in _ cattle
breeding at the Central Experi-
ment Station, Department of
Agriculture, continues on the de-
velopment of a dual purpose
animal based on grading experi-
ments to the Red Pol) breed. The
results so far are most encourag-
ing and there are alveady cows
and first calf-heifers producing
three gallons of milk daily. In
adaition, other work is being done
in the fields of pig, horse, mule,

In St. Kitts, Dr. Hutson said
that work is being centred mainly
on the establishment of a grade
Holstein herd as well as prelim-
inary studies in the suitability
of grade Jerseys.

In the island of Nevis, work
has been started on the produc-
tion of beef cattle, using grade
Red Poll bulls on foundation
cows. The objective of this work
the said, is to produce meat
primarily for the home market
and when numbers permit, for
export in the Caribbean area.

No Aggressive
Intentians

PARIS, Dec. 19.

France emphasized to Russia
to-day that the Western powers
had no aggressive intentions and
“are firmly resolved not to de-
part from this attitude”, Ansy er-
ing the Soviet charge of “iter-
vention” in the affairs of the
Middle East States, the French
reply said “no measure of mili-
tary character would be taken
without the complete approval of
the state or states whose inde-
pendence and national sovereignty
would thus be fully safeguarded.”

Full Attendance
At Recital Of
Christmas Music

Mi@hael’s Cathedral was
filed to capacity last night as
many lovers of Church music
turned out to hear the annual
Choral Society recital of Chrisi-
mas music. ‘The Choral Socie y
consisted of 120 voices and w
assisted by the Cathedral Choir

A clear hour before the recital
—which was of one hour and 30
minutes duration—large crowds
gathered outside the two gates of

Saint

the Cathedral and some were
even turmed back after it was
impossible to accommodate any

more persons in the church.

Before the recital was started,
Dean Hazlewood prayed and the
first carel “This is the Month”
was —-. The selection from
Handel “The People that Walked
in Darkness” was well sung by
Mr, C, B. St. John, accompanied
by Mr. Gerald Hudson on the
organ. Mr. St. John a bass bari-
tone, showed last night much
versatility and voice control in
his singing, especially in the
deep notes.

Other soloists were Mrs. L
Branch, Mrs. J. Thorne. Mr.
L. C, Cummings and Mrs. Tudor
who sang “Sleep Holy Babe”.
There were three organ solos by
Mr. Gerald Hudson. The first
organ solo “Noel” by Balfour
Gardiner was played to a mod-
ern setting. The selection is
written for piano but was trans-
cribed by Mr. Hudson himself
for the organ. This piece ended
with a harmonisation of the carol
“Good King Wenceslas”’.

The last work was the finale
from the music to the “Royal
Fireworks” written by Handel.
In this piece Mr. Hudson brought
out all the splendour of the
Church organ.

As last year the Society ended
the recital with the singing of
Tennyson's “Ring Out Wild Bells
to the Wild Sky.”

Antiguan Elections

TODAY the people of Antigua go to the
polls to elect four members of the Legis-
lative Council. Already four “elected”
members have won their seats to the new
Council as a result of no contest. These
four are Labour party members and in-
clude the Leader, the Hon. V. C. Bird.

Elections in Antigua cannot in any way
be compared with elections in Barbados.
The Legislature of Antigua is composed of
one Legislative Council which contains 14
members of whom eight are elected. The
Administrator of Antigua is President of
the Council, two members hold their seats
ex-officio and three others are nominated
by the Governor.

Party politics as known in Barbados
cannot be said to exist in Antigua and
their elections cannot for that reason
arouse more than passing interest. The
results are expected to follow the pattern
already seen in the Windwards where
adult suffrage has resulted in the return
of members on the extreme left. In An-
tigua there are three independents and
one member of another political party
opposing Labour but Mr. Bird’s Labour
party isgeonfidently expected to have the
majority in the new Council.

But if the Antiguan clections~ will
arouse little enthusiasm im Batbados
where the people have just elected 24
members to a’ House of Assembly with
more than three hundred years of tradition
behind it, the Antigua Labour Party’s
“Progress Report” is a very revealing
document worthy of study. Its attitude
to taxation for instance is most enlighten-
ing. In Antigua Labour representatives
have, we are told, “met many attempts to
dip into the pockets of the citizens with
strong opposition, advising that larger
grants be sought from Britain or such
other foreign sources as the Truman
Point Four Programme, the E. Ca A, the
Marshall Aid Plan ete.” .

This rather exceptional attitude*toward
taxation is modified a few Sentences later
by the statement that “Antigua pays more
taxes per head of population than most of
the other Caribbean islands of her size.”
But it is typical of the most amazing para-
doxes which abound in this amazing docu-
ment.

“Progress Report” is not so much a
report of progress in the normal accepted
sense of the word except as a progress
from say bad things to worse. It is a very
vivid and uninhibited commentary on the

‘state of political life in Antigua. Accord-
ing to the report, the chanees of Labour’s
complete success with their “bountiful
and far-reaching improvements would
have been far greater had two members
who went into Council on the Labour
platform stuck to their campaign promises
and supported....the faithful elected
members.” But this damaging admission
is repaired almost immediately by blaming
“the Constitution which denied the Repre-
sentatives of the people the right to run
their own affairs.”

Unlike the Barbados Labour’ Party in
its attitude to taxation the Antigua Labour
Party also differs in its positive approach
to the Tourist Industry. “We will, say
the Labour Party of Antigua ‘do every-
thing in our power to encourage and sup-
port the development of this trade which
ean prove a useful and important money
earner.”

The real difficulty about Progress Re-
port is to know what to take seriously and
what to neglect as insignificant. But every
now and then through its pages a sentence
stands out clamouring for attention, How
for instance is anyone to interpret the
following Statement that “it has been
agreed by Government and is now the
accepted Land Policy that whenever there
is shortage of Agricultural Lands in any
district for the people of the area, lands
will be purchased or acquired to meet
their needs.” Surely such claims assume
supernatural powers not normally -avail-
able to political parties, Or how are we
to be favourably impressed by the follow-
ing statement about corn: “the main
draw-back to its proper handling is the
lack of an individual with the know-how
of cornmeal to run the factory, the lack
of inadequate mills and/or engines. These
minor draw-backs could quite easily be
remedied if Government were to take the
necessary steps, first of all to train tech-
nicians and secondly to acquire a germ ex-
tracting machine and a few more small
modern mills.”

It may surprise the compilers of Pro-
gress Report that no advantage has been
taken of concessions granted under the
Pioneer Industries Bill up to the present,
but it will surprise no intelligent reader
of Progress Report that capital is chary
of entering an island where the Govern-
ment and the nominated element. is
accused of ruling the community in the
way “that has brought illiteracy, misery,
poverty, ignorance and subjection to Im-
perialistic exploitation.” But if the gov-
ernment of Barbados were to take taxa-
tion much higher it is always possible of
course that capital now in Barbados might
be tempted to migrate to Antigua which
although much more backward politically
obviously realises that capital must be en-
couraged. Countries which are backward
politically sometimes show better econo-
mie sense than those which enjoy more
progressive administrations.

BIM-Vol. TV. No.15) AN END TO |
molt & _ FAMINE |



NEVILLE CONNELL

West Indian poetry, literature
and art only exist in the purely
geographic sense. There is no
endemic culture in the Carib-
bean. Such culture as exists in
this area owes its origin and
growth to the influences and
stimuli of Western Europe. The

|
| standards by which critics should
| judge West Indian culture,
| therefore, must be European, If
critics are to be true to their own
| standards, West Indian poetry,
literature and art must be com-
pared with similar contemporary
| European productions. Any ad-
verse criticism in the Caribbean
is not only bitterly resented, but
erities are subjected to torrents
of abuse. Abuse does not usually
matter to impartial critics, but
no critic cares to be stigmatised
“unfair”, for this is almost
equivalent to the critic being
accused of picking jhe pocket of
the writer or artist,

How then must critics judge
if not by their own standards?

BIM: has progressed from being
a purely parochial production and
has become a sort of HORIZON
of the South Caribbean. Previ-
ous, issues of BIM have been
criticised as being no better than
a college or even school maga-
zine. There is much truth in this
statement. The lot of the editors
is not a happy one, for it is diffi-
cult to obtain material, and in

their anxiety to publish two
issu a year they are forced to
include much inferior material.
On some of this a blue pencil

uld have been used to correct
ungrammatical and meaningless
English on the part of contribu-
tors, and an irritating number of
dropped letters on the part of
compositors. The remainder
should have been rewarded a
rejection slip. Many of the con-
tributions are very short, and
there are too many blank spaces
and empty half-pages.

The lino cut frontispiece by
John Harrison is not up to the
usual standard of his work, and
the unconnected skeletal torso of
one figure is worrying. Two tail-
pieces by Kathleen Hawkins have
the merit of being clean and
clear, Six excellent photographs
of Haitian life by John Harrison
are spoiled by reproduction on
poor paper.

Mrs, Napier has contributed a
slight sketch entitled “Carnival in
Martinique”, which is almost a
compliment to John Harrison's
interesting article “Aspects of
Haitian Life’, with. its vivid
description of a carnival. Hugh
Popham’s poem “Sleeping Out”

is both gay and charming. Edgar’

Mittleholzer’s sketch “The Sub-
Committee’ has an amusing
twist, and is all the better for its
spontaneity. Geoffrey Drayton's
article “The Recitation of
Poetry” might have been expan-
ded. With his knowledge of
poetry, Geoffrey Drayton is com-
petent to dilate on the music and
meaning of poetry apd their
effect on the. reciter. It was
refreshing to find “Interlude”, a
short story, among so many intro-
spective fragments listed as
“Short Stories’. Cecil Gray
understands the structure of the
short. story. His style is direct,
easy and convincing. The con-
junction “and”, however, is used
too often where a full stop is
needed,

“Some Religious Attitudes in
W.I. Poetry” by E. McG. Keane
attempts an interesting analysis,
which fails because the author
is not clear in his own mind as
to what constitutes a_ religious
attitude, If a poet adopts the use
of a short line following several
much longer lines as in the poem
quoted by George Campbell, this
cannot be said to be a litany,
Derek Walcott’s poem “St. Judas”
is certainly not “One problem of
the orthodox attitude”. It is
highly unorthodox, The “eleva-
tion of Judas Iscariot to the rank
of a martyr” is to repudiate the
meaning of the word “martyr”.
The author, having quoted a few
lines of the poem continues:
“This is however a rather aca-







visitor.4in the enslavement of their fel-

low Africans frequently escapes

This would ensure that meaning-
less ungrammatical sentences are
‘ess frequent, Good style in writing
need not be involved, usually it is
better for being simple.

Readers are informed that Mr.
Stephen Spender was “favourably
impressed by the quality of the
verse” when he stated “his re-
actions to Mr. Lamming’s poetry
ind to West Indian poetry in
general.” “TI am really excited
mbout poets,” ssys Mr. Spender,
“because they give such a strong
mpression of the islands wrabe!
: the important thing is that
we should have a world move-
ment. in poetry” and “, . , here is
a really individual contribution
vhich is highly colourful, and pas-
sionate and idiosyncratic, bringing
an experience of that part of the
werld into a whole world move-
ment of modern poetry”. This
statement will scarcely surprise
readers of Mr, Spender's poetry or
ef his autobiography. Nor will we
be carried away by “a strong im-
tression of the islands” or, the
importance of ‘‘a world movement
of modern poetry” whatever these
may mean.

BIM poets suffer greatly from an
inconsequential stringing together
of words which results in mean-
ingless lines. It is not so muco
that the imagery is confused, or,
that meaning has been sacrificed
to the music of words. Little
attention is paid to form in the
construction of poems, and rhyme
is often forced or false, Constantly
one is compelled to stop and ask
“Why?” or, “What does this
mean?” This is not because the
poem is abstruse, but, because too
many inapposite words are em-
ployed. George W. Lamming’s
poem “Swans” begins:

“By no other name are these

The imperturbable birds more beautiful

No likelicr image for the summer's curl

Of white light caught from the sea's

Arterial cells; or the moon's wry

Face carved on the curved aristocratic

sky”

Swans are not “imperturbable
birds”, for they are capable of
being easily disturbed or agitated.
What are “the sea’s arterial cells”,
and can white light be caught
from them? I doubt it. How is
it possible to have an aristocratic
sky, for this adjective implies a
class of persons, and, in any case
the word is most unmusieal, Yet,
one feels that Mr. Lamming has
something out of the ordinary to
say; there is a striving after poetic
images of real beauty which fail
to materialise because he does not
construe simply.

Derek Walcott’s “Sambo Agon-
istes" cannot be called poetry. The
second and third verses read:

“I was lonely and young on the hills

all the birds

turds,

I was a sagaboy, augur with werds,

contains as its opening:

“Foster flung himself on the
grass under the cannenball tree

a@ stop against the trunk.”

lt is difficult to understand how
th’s feat was achieved. This piece
cf writing is utterly unconvincing.
It is a strain on the reader’s cred-
ulity to be told that a character
who listens to Chopin and formu-
lates a metaphysical theory would
use such ungrammatical language
as “What is t> is must is”.

The essence of a joust is, surely,
that it is a mock fight on horse-

swordpieced, If this was a joust
there should be no _ vindictive

tally wounded, and at whose feet
is doubtful. Surely the successful
rider’s stirrups are not so long
that his feet touch ground? And
there are other similar passages.
“Red Sky” by A. N. Forde
suffers from the same defects:
“. . .. . and from his bed-
room he could see the tall

But the morning still didn’t

of some sort of experiment. For
my part I have only seen palm-

LONDON, December 6.

ACCORDING to a recent estimate by Sir
John Russell, former chairman of UNRRA’s
agricultural sub-committee, if food now being
destroyed annually by pests could be saved,
there would be an end to famine in all coun-
tries suffering from this scourge.

Even in England—a relatively .“pest-free”
country—it has been calculated that 10% of
all crops are lost through this cause. In other
countries—especially in tropical lands, where
parasitic creepers and fungi as well as insects
batten upon precious cultivation—the loss is
about double. India, for instance, together
with her neighbour, Pakistan, are two of the

Africa, too, is another major victim. It has
just been estimated that in certain areas a full

Small wonder that scientists of all nations

put the task of combating these deadly plant

and pest parasites as being a top priority in
current research activities. For not until that
vital percentage of the world’s foodstuffs
now being devoured by these parasites is
diverted to its proper purpose of feeding
human beings, will the twin terrors of mass
starvation and malnutrition be driven from
the earth.

Mercifully, progress toward this goal has
been astonishingly successful in the past
decade. The chemical and the oil industries,
especially, have combined to produce new

while new insecticides, fungicides and weed-
killers—of a potency undreamed of even ten
rears ago—are now in full commercial pro-
duetion.

Both these industries have spent, and are
spending, money without stint on research
programmes essential to the task, and some
of the world’s most brilliant chemists and oil
technologists are pitting their skill and
knowledge against the tsetse fly, the berne,
and other vampiric pests. If the chemical and
oil scientists can win this vital battle, it will

annual report to shareholders,

Although the report was evi-
dently written before the return
of a Conservative Government,
many of the matiers touched on
by Mr. Crossley are still the
subject of lively public debate, His
attack on the present high level of
taxation on company profits and
his criticism of recent legislation
to prohibit the migration of United
Kingdom companies are widely
supported.

The policies now being pursued,
he said; might be fatal to the con-
tinued existence of the sterling
area. Solemn statements were still
issuing from high places about
steps contempla.ed to develop our
resources overseas; but by whom
would these resources now be de-
veloped?

“It seems unlikely, any longer,”
he continued, “that much can be
expected through government
agencies, nor is it likely, in the
main, to be through the operation

“ts not only the unfortunate
shareholders resident in the U.K.
who suffer this disadvantage, but
the local resident overseas, who
cannot take a share in the for.unes
of enterprise carried on by Bi{tish
companies operating in his area
without suffering the penalty of
U.K. tax on the profits of the
company.”

A system which has such results
was clearly out of da.e and must
be amended, he said. Until this
was done, and the profits of U.K.
companies earned overseas freed
from this levy, the disruptive ten-
dencies would continue, with seri-
ous consequences for the whole
currency areas which was centred
on London and whose links with
the business -world of the City
were perhaps the strongest cohe-
sive within it.

The question: “By whom will
Colonial resources now be develop-
ed?” is partly answered in the
same report, which contains a

CONDUCTOR GUILTY OF MURDER

Sentenced To
Be Hanged

The jury took 15 minutes yesterday at thé Court of Grand
Sessions to return a verdict against 40-year-old Alphonza -p
Beckles, a conductor of Society Hill, St. John, of guilty of
murdering 48-year-old Winston Cumberbatch, the ‘bus
driver who. drove the "bus he conducted. Beckles was sen-
tenced by "The Hon. the Acting Puisne Judge, Mr. G. L.

Taylor, to be hanged.

Asked whether he had anything
to say, Beckles said looking to-
wards the jury: “This is my, last
testimony to you. I am telling you
IT am inneeent of the charge... May
the Lord have mercy on your
souls.”

This was the second time
Beckles stood trial for the murder
he was convicted of having com-
mitted on September 9 this year.
On the first occasion, the Judge
was summing up to the jury when
a juror broke down under nervous
excitement and the case had to be
retried.

This second tria) lasted two
days. On the first day the Prose-
culion called 22 witnesses and the
Court one, Yesterday Mr. J. S. B.
Dear, defence counsel, addressed
the jury for an hour and a half,
Mr. W. W. Reece, K.C., Solicitor
General for the Prosecution ad-
dressed for an hour and the Judge
summed up for an hour and a
quarter.

Mr. George Farmer was associ-
ated with Mr. Dear as Defence
Counsel.

Previcus Quarrels

The Prosecution's case was that
Beckles and St lent had had
many quarrels previous to the
murder-and on the morning of the
day of the murder. The two of
them were taking a ‘bus to Dis-
trict “C,.” St. Philip, and were
passing along Thicketts Road when
Beckles — stabbed Cumberbatch
while he was driving.

In his address to the jury yes-
terday, Mr. Dear said that what
they had heard by rumour, con-
versation or otherwise concerning
the trial, had to be discarded. The
verdict they had to give had to be
based on the evidence they had
heard from the witnesses.

“The Prosecutjon’s case,” he
said, “hinges on’ circumstantial
evidence and YT shall devote some
time to dealing with the probative
force of circumstantial evidence.”

The only time a jury could
bring forward a verdict of guilty
of murder on circumstantial evi-
dence was when the only conclu-
sion théy could come to was that
the murdered man could only
have been killed by the accused
If therefore the conclusion that
Cumberbatch could have been
killed other than by Beckles stab-
bing him they could not return
a verdict of guilty of murder.

Complaints
On the morning of September
9, Cumberbatch and Beckles had
made complaints against each other
to the ’bus manager, Mr. O'’Neale,

The next evidence was that
two mensaw the’bus pass not
long before the accident, and
Beckles was in the rear sea

holding his bicycle at that time.

When the bus reached Thicketts
Road, it suddenly ran off the road
and crashed into the guardwall.

“I submit to you,” he said “that
Beckles’ telling witnesses that
Cumberbatch had gone through
the canes was not inexplicable.

With the evidence that the
cushion was found on the wall
outside the bus, it mayvwell be
seen that in ‘the same waydhat
was thrown out, Becktes!»eould
have been thrown out, Because of
this, the conductor may Well have
thought that the man ran through
the canes,

They, the jury, might ask them-
selves why Beckles did not go and
look for Cumberbatch. They
would remember, however, that
the men were not friendly and
Beckles was fearful that Cumber-
batch had intended killing himé
and had afterwards run throug
the canes. :

You may be asked to think that
Beckles was just putting on a bluff
when he told the witnesses that
Cumberbateh had gone through
the canes, But Beckles would not
have been acting in his own in-
terest if he had left Cumberbatch

Greater Food
Output Needed

IN TRINIDAD

Conditions for export crops m

and, oa the waole, satisfactory

Williams, Acting Director of Agri-
cu ture, told the Advocate yester-
day.

He said that there is the need

The Committee has st:essed the
importance of using the land for

reasonable to think that Beckles
would have tried to delay the dis-
,covery of the stabbing so that no
one would have been able to get
any statement from Cumberbatch.

No Dispute

The evidence of Mr. Farmer to
whom Beckles went to get the
‘telephone message, was not in dis-
pute. No one was denying that
Beckles went and telephoned. He
had telephoned, but he had done
‘that because the crash was merely

but that evidence was not corro-

Seaman’s Death Due
To Natural Causés

A nine’ man jury returned a
verdict of death by natural
causes to Coroner C. L, Walwyn
when the hearing in the inquest
concerning the death of 50-year-
old George Taylor, a seaman of
Queen's Street, St. Michael was
ended at District “A” Police Court
yesterday afternoon,

George Taylor who was living
with his cousin Eloise Spelling at
Queen’s Street was taken to the
General Hospital on December 16
ebout 6.15 a.m, and died the same
day about 6.30 p.m.

br. A. S. Cato who performed
the post mortem examination on
December 17 about 1.30 p.m. said
ihat the deceased was identified to
him by Eloise Spelling. Tihe de-
ceased was a badly nourished man
and there were slight haemor-
rhages on the brain. The heart
was flabby and the liver showed
evidence of acute alcoholism, In
his opinion death was due to acute
alccholism,

Eloise Spelling told

Blood Stains

They could infev that the stab
was received when Cumberbatch
fell out of the bus. If they felt
that that was not reasonable be-
cause of the bloodstains which
were seen in the cage, they could
infer that some of the blood stains
were in the cage before. The
cushion had been put under Cum-
berbatch’s head while he was on
the ground and was afterwards
found within the bus. It was reas-
onable to assume that the remain-
der of the blood was brought in
by. the cushion.

He reminded them that the
Prosecution had not brought for-
ward Whitfield Mason to give evi-
dence, Superintendent Grant had
said that the statement Mason had
given was incomplete, yet Mason
had said that he had given a full
statement and had not been ap-
proached for any other statement.

had forgotten if he had been told.
Yet he knew that that would have
been material evidence.

“There is only one view that can
be taken of this,” Mr. Reece for
the Prosecution said when ad-
dressing the jury, “and it is that
there were only two men in the
bus and one was stabbed and it
could only be the other who had

As the 1952 Olympic games at
Helsinki areé only just round the
corner—and a British team has to

be--selected — top-class amateur
boxing shows are being watched
with additional interest

The match was boxed under

international (A.1.B.A.) and not
under British A.B.A.) rules. The
main difference between them is
that under international rules, the
referee controls the beut from
inside the ring, whereas under
British rules he does it from a seat
at the ringside. This is how the
bouts will be governed at Helsinki.

Of the boxers on view, it was
the heavy-weights who took the
eye. There were two bouts in this
division, and in each the Army
were represented by former A.B.A
champicns.

In the first, Cpl. Worrall (1949
champion) gained the decision
over his tough opponent Hearn, bv
virtue of some good orthodox
boxing, using the gocd o'd British
Straight-left as a cteady points
Scorer. Hearn was down twice in
thé first round, but in round two,
recovered splendidly to score well
with some solid right hand
punches. But Worrall continued
to bex cleverly and with his
superior ringcraft was able to
keep out of further trouble.

The Army were also victorious
in the other heavyweight contest,
where Private P.’ Toch (1950
A.B.A. champion) was too strong
a puncher fcr his opponent R.
Miles.

In these heavyweight bouts, and
in fact throughout the evening, the
boxers displayed a keenness and
fighting spirit which augurs well
for British Olympic hopes.

Senate Charges

By ROBERT F. LOFTUS
WASHINGTON, Dec. 19.
The Senate Investigating Sub-Commi:tee charged that the
Defence Department and the Civilian Mobilization Chiefs

are gambling with national security by letting United
States industry turn out too many automobiles, refrigera-



tors, and gadgets, instead of planes, tanks and guns.
The Sub- -committee, headed by
the Texas Democrat Lyndon B.

Johnson, says that they are trying
to give his nation both guns and
butter at the risk of being caught
half-armed if World War III
should explode in the near future.

Defence Mobilizer, Charles E.
Wilson, denies it. He says that
civilian production has never
been allowed to interfere with re-
armament, that the U.S. Armed

Communists May
Block Talks On
War Prisoners

PANMUNJOM, Dee. 19.

The Communists indicated that they may block all fur-

ther talks on the release of war prisoners, including 3,198
Americans, until after Christmas.

Alan Winnington, the Communist newsman who acts

as sort of unofficial spokesman for the Red truce delega-



tion, charged that the list of 132,474 Communist prison-
ers, furnished by the United Nations yesterday was in-
complete and useless ‘
He said that the list was entirely in English whieh
cannot be translated accurately into either Chinese ‘or
Korean, and contained neither unit identifications nor home

corner has been decorated
with many odd titles during her
publie career. But when it comes
to “Glamour” her American sisters
Tun away with allthe honours.

A girl who was recently elected
“Miss Sewer Cleaner” in Detroit
said that th@ugh she did not think
much of the title, it would prob-
ably help -her career. The same
may be said of another American
girl who was elected “Miss Alum-
inium Stép-ladder.” May I sug-
gest to’ the Slopcorner that she
should- allow her name to go for-

Deep in the City

HE most interesting point
about the arrangement to
underwrite the £5,000,000 issue

for the Manchester Ship Canal is
that the debenture stock is not re-
deemable until 1966, by which
time the Iriam Docks viaduct will,
of course, have ceased to a in-
cluded in the area of the Canal,
and the stretch between Warring-
ton and Warburton High Level
Bridge will be in private owner-
ship. This is bound to affect the
issue, and unless Manchester Cor-
poration is prepared to increase the

i
‘





percentage of the redemption yield,
the underwriting will be no easy
matter.

I AM always pleased when wo-

men suddenly grow tired of
being lectured and badgered by

USPECTING, from information
received under cover of dark-

ing sticks of utility liquorice (con-
taining phasmenol) without a
licence. Food Spy No, 348712 ap-
proached him in the disguise of a
schoolboy. The spy purchased a
stick and started to eat it, But it
was a bootlace, and so, instead of
being prosecuted under Regulation
871/C/14/H.234.bf., the vendor had
to be prosecuted under Regulation
R/819/17/Cd.17.8.5.n1/46/K. It was
then discovered by a committee of
12 analysts that there was no
phasmenol in the bootlace, So the

End-of-term examinations

S the end-ol-term examina-
tions draw near at Narkover,
there is the customary degrading
spectacle of organised attempts to

get a preliminary glimpse of a

papers.

It is known that several false
sets are being printed, to put the
boys off the trail. It is also known
that many of the masters are
willing for a _ consideration, to
divulge some of the questions they
themselves are setting. But the
whele thing is complicated by an
elaborate system of double-treble-
and quadruple-crossings. Behind |

it all, and not particularly aloof, is |

the figure of the Headmaster, who

usually makes a good thing out of |

deliberately misleading both mas-
ters and boys. In fact, the main
use of these examinations seems
to be to keep, money in circulation.

Sorrel In Short Supply

Barbados had one of its smallest sorrel crops.

There is very little sorrel offered for sale along the streets
' Manufacturers of aerated drinks, who generally bottle
sorrel at Christmas, drove all over the island in seareh of

sorrel. They got very little.

B.W.I. Sugar
Association
Meeting

THE Annual Meeting of B.W.1.
Sugar Association (Inc.) was held
on the 17th December, 1951, at the
Treasury Building, Port-of-Spain
Trinidad.

The Associations
were the following: —

Antigua Sugar Association (Inc).
Director: Hon. A. Moody Stuart,



represented

O.B.E., M.C., Adviser; Mr, J. C.
McMichael,

Barbados Sugar Producers’ As-
sociation (Inc)., Director: Mr.

O.B.E., Mr. W. B. Pyett.

B.W.1. Sugar Association Staff
Mr. A. D. Mitchell, Adviser: Asst.
Secretary.

The Directors for the year

1951/52 are the abeve gentlemen
except that Mr. J. C. McMichael
has taken the place of the Hon. A.
Moody Stuart, O.B.E., M.C., as Di-
rector for Antigua, and the Hon.
R.L.M. Kirkwood is the Jamaica
Director, Mr. O. M. Henzell having
acted for him on this occasion.
Chairman Re-elected

The Hon. H. E. Robinson was
unanimously re-elected Chairman
for the third time, having served
in this capacity for the past three
years,

Other formal business was done
and the Hon. G. D. L. Pile, O.B.E.,
of Barbados, who had been Chair-
man prior to the Hon, H. E.
Robinson, for five years was elected
an Honorary Member of the As-
sociation as a token of the esteem
in which he is held by the Direc-
tors,

Unfortunately, the current Com-
monwealth Sugar Negotiations in
the United Kingdom have not yet
been completed and the meeting
was therefore unable to do more
than note the progress made to
date.

In view of the fact that the
Eighth Gongress of the Internation-
al Society of Sugar Cane Technol-
ogists is being held in the British
West Indies in 1953, it was de-
cided not to hold the usual B.W.1.
Sugar Technologists’ Conference
next year.

The future of the British West
Indies Sugar Research Scheme
with headquarters at the Imperial
College of Tropical Agriculture
came under discussion in view of
the fact that the first five-year
period will be completed in August

A Xmas Saving of ||DRESS SHIRTS

Mr. “Bob” Cumberbatch, owner
of the Niagara Bottling Factory,

told the Advocate yesterday that
the heavy rains have caused the
shortage of sorrel this year.

Mr, Cumberbatch buys the
sorrel direct from the plantations.
There are six people employed to
cut and dry it. The sorrel is then
placed in stainless steel recepta-
cles where it is steeped in water
for three days. It then goes through

a special process before being
bettled for delivery

Mr. Cumberbatch said that
owing to the short supply this

year he was foreed to buy sorrel
pods at prices ranging from ten
to twelve cents per pound. Last
year sorrel pods were sold at
five and six cents per pound ana
in some cases it could be pur-
chased at four cents a pound.

Bottling Is Slow

He said tnat the prevess of
bottling the sorrel is a slow one
therefore he has never been able
to make as much as he could
sell. This year he will not be abit
to supply more than two-thirds of
his general output. This is be-
cause of the shortage,

Mr. J. A. Martineau of Martin-
eau’s Soda Factory, Bay Street,
said that he travelled all over

the country, but was only abie to
get a very small amount of sorr>
pods,

He said that when asked the
reason of the snortage, some peo-
ple suggest that it is because of
the heavy rains while others com-

plain that the seeds would not
grow They also gave other
reasons.

Mr, Martineau said* that the

quality of the sorrel to-day is not
us good as years ago. In his opinion
the sorrel years ago was more
acid than it is to-day. The acid
sorrel made the better drink,

He said the he helieved that
the ‘ground was not properly
manured otherwise the _ sorrel
would have maintained its high
quality.

A sorrel vendor told the Ad-
vocate that she has found it ex-
tremely difficult to get sorrel
pods,

She said that
customers in the

EXCELLENCY (S GRAVELY UNWELL,

British Virgin Isles
Expert Livestock To
U.S. Virgin Isles

Dr. L. R, Hutson, Chief Vet-
erinary Officer of the Leeward
Islands, told the Advocate yester-
day that it is gratifying to record
that within the last few years
there has been a slow, but never-
theless, steady awakening of live-
stock cdhsciousness in the islands
of Antigua and St, Kitts-Nevis.

He said that there has alWays
Leen a vigorous livestock industry
in the British Virgin Islands and
regular monthly shipments o1
slaughtered livestock are made t)
St. Thomas, U.S, Virgin Islands.
The British Virgin Yslands have
the signal honour of being atc-
credited by the U.S, authorities
as being free of the cattle tick—
this as a result of the application
of a rigid tick eradication pro-
gramme.

In the island of Montserrat, a
scheme has been recently drawn
up for the rehabilitation of the
livestock industry and this he said,
has been submitted for approval,

Cattle Breeding

In Antigua, work in _ cattle
breeding at the Central Experi-
ment Station, Department of
Agriculture, continues on the de-
velopment of a dual purpose
animal based on grading experi-
ments to the Red Pol) breed. The
results so far are most encourag-
ing and there are alveady cows
and first calf-heifers producing
three gallons of milk daily. In
adaition, other work is being done
in the fields of pig, horse, mule,
donkey and sheep breeding.

In St. Kitts, Dr. Hutson said
that work is being centred mainly
on the establishment of a grade
Holstein herd as well as prelim-
inary studies in the suitability
of grade Jerseys.

In the island of Nevis, work
has been started on the produc-
tion of beef cattle, using grade
Red Poll bulls on foundation
cows. The objective of this work
the said, is to produce meat
primarily for the home market

No Aggressive
Intentians

PARIS, Dec. 19.

France emphasized to Russia
to-day that the Western powers
had no aggressive intentions and
“are firmly resolved not to de-
part from this attitude”, Ansy er-
ing the Soviet charge of “iter-
vention” in the affairs of the
Middle East States, the French
reply said “no measure of mili-
tary character would be taken
without the complete approval of
the state or states whose inde-
pendence and national sovereignty
would thus be fully safeguarded.”

Full Attendance
At Recital Of
Christmas Music

Mi@hael’s Cathedral was
filed to capacity last night as
many lovers of Church music
turned out to hear the annual
Choral Society recital of Chrisi-
mas music. ‘The Choral Socie y
consisted of 120 voices and w
assisted by the Cathedral Choir

A clear hour before the recital
—which was of one hour and 30
minutes duration—large crowds
gathered outside the two gates of

Saint

the Cathedral and some were
even turmed back after it was
impossible to accommodate any

more persons in the church.

Before the recital was started,
Dean Hazlewood prayed and the
first carel “This is the Month”
was —-. The selection from
Handel “The People that Walked
in Darkness” was well sung by
Mr, C, B. St. John, accompanied
by Mr. Gerald Hudson on the
organ. Mr. St. John a bass bari-
tone, showed last night much
versatility and voice control in
his singing, especially in the
deep notes.

Other soloists were Mrs. L
Branch, Mrs. J. Thorne. Mr.
L. C, Cummings and Mrs. Tudor
who sang “Sleep Holy Babe”.
There were three organ solos by
Mr. Gerald Hudson. The first
organ solo “Noel” by Balfour
Gardiner was played to a mod-
ern setting. The selection is
written for piano but was trans-
cribed by Mr. Hudson himself
for the organ. This piece ended
with a harmonisation of the carol
“Good King Wenceslas”’.

The last work was the finale
from the music to the “Royal
Fireworks” written by Handel.
In this piece Mr. Hudson brought
out all the splendour of the
Church organ.

As last year the Society ended
the recital with the singing of
Tennyson's “Ring Out Wild Bells
to the Wild Sky.”

Antiguan Elections

TODAY the people of Antigua go to the
polls to elect four members of the Legis-
lative Council. Already four “elected”
members have won their seats to the new
Council as a result of no contest. These
four are Labour party members and in-
clude the Leader, the Hon. V. C. Bird.

Elections in Antigua cannot in any way
be compared with elections in Barbados.
The Legislature of Antigua is composed of
one Legislative Council which contains 14
members of whom eight are elected. The
Administrator of Antigua is President of
the Council, two members hold their seats
ex-officio and three others are nominated
by the Governor.

Party politics as known in Barbados
cannot be said to exist in Antigua and
their elections cannot for that reason
arouse more than passing interest. The
results are expected to follow the pattern
already seen in the Windwards where
adult suffrage has resulted in the return
of members on the extreme left. In An-
tigua there are three independents and
one member of another political party
opposing Labour but Mr. Bird’s Labour
party isgeonfidently expected to have the
majority in the new Council.

But if the Antiguan clections~ will
arouse little enthusiasm im Batbados
where the people have just elected 24
members to a’ House of Assembly with
more than three hundred years of tradition
behind it, the Antigua Labour Party’s
“Progress Report” is a very revealing
document worthy of study. Its attitude
to taxation for instance is most enlighten-
ing. In Antigua Labour representatives
have, we are told, “met many attempts to
dip into the pockets of the citizens with
strong opposition, advising that larger
grants be sought from Britain or such
other foreign sources as the Truman
Point Four Programme, the E. Ca A, the
Marshall Aid Plan ete.” .

This rather exceptional attitude*toward
taxation is modified a few Sentences later
by the statement that “Antigua pays more
taxes per head of population than most of
the other Caribbean islands of her size.”
But it is typical of the most amazing para-
doxes which abound in this amazing docu-
ment.

“Progress Report” is not so much a
report of progress in the normal accepted
sense of the word except as a progress
from say bad things to worse. It is a very
vivid and uninhibited commentary on the

‘state of political life in Antigua. Accord-
ing to the report, the chanees of Labour’s
complete success with their “bountiful
and far-reaching improvements would
have been far greater had two members
who went into Council on the Labour
platform stuck to their campaign promises
and supported....the faithful elected
members.” But this damaging admission
is repaired almost immediately by blaming
“the Constitution which denied the Repre-
sentatives of the people the right to run
their own affairs.”

Unlike the Barbados Labour’ Party in
its attitude to taxation the Antigua Labour
Party also differs in its positive approach
to the Tourist Industry. “We will, say
the Labour Party of Antigua ‘do every-
thing in our power to encourage and sup-
port the development of this trade which
ean prove a useful and important money
earner.”

The real difficulty about Progress Re-
port is to know what to take seriously and
what to neglect as insignificant. But every
now and then through its pages a sentence
stands out clamouring for attention, How
for instance is anyone to interpret the
following Statement that “it has been
agreed by Government and is now the
accepted Land Policy that whenever there
is shortage of Agricultural Lands in any
district for the people of the area, lands
will be purchased or acquired to meet
their needs.” Surely such claims assume
supernatural powers not normally -avail-
able to political parties, Or how are we
to be favourably impressed by the follow-
ing statement about corn: “the main
draw-back to its proper handling is the
lack of an individual with the know-how
of cornmeal to run the factory, the lack
of inadequate mills and/or engines. These
minor draw-backs could quite easily be
remedied if Government were to take the
necessary steps, first of all to train tech-
nicians and secondly to acquire a germ ex-
tracting machine and a few more small
modern mills.”

It may surprise the compilers of Pro-
gress Report that no advantage has been
taken of concessions granted under the
Pioneer Industries Bill up to the present,
but it will surprise no intelligent reader
of Progress Report that capital is chary
of entering an island where the Govern-
ment and the nominated element. is
accused of ruling the community in the
way “that has brought illiteracy, misery,
poverty, ignorance and subjection to Im-
perialistic exploitation.” But if the gov-
ernment of Barbados were to take taxa-
tion much higher it is always possible of
course that capital now in Barbados might
be tempted to migrate to Antigua which
although much more backward politically
obviously realises that capital must be en-
couraged. Countries which are backward
politically sometimes show better econo-
mie sense than those which enjoy more
progressive administrations.

BIM-Vol. TV. No.15) AN END TO |
molt & _ FAMINE |



NEVILLE CONNELL

West Indian poetry, literature
and art only exist in the purely
geographic sense. There is no
endemic culture in the Carib-
bean. Such culture as exists in
this area owes its origin and
growth to the influences and
stimuli of Western Europe. The

|
| standards by which critics should
| judge West Indian culture,
| therefore, must be European, If
critics are to be true to their own
| standards, West Indian poetry,
literature and art must be com-
pared with similar contemporary
| European productions. Any ad-
verse criticism in the Caribbean
is not only bitterly resented, but
erities are subjected to torrents
of abuse. Abuse does not usually
matter to impartial critics, but
no critic cares to be stigmatised
“unfair”, for this is almost
equivalent to the critic being
accused of picking jhe pocket of
the writer or artist,

How then must critics judge
if not by their own standards?

BIM: has progressed from being
a purely parochial production and
has become a sort of HORIZON
of the South Caribbean. Previ-
ous, issues of BIM have been
criticised as being no better than
a college or even school maga-
zine. There is much truth in this
statement. The lot of the editors
is not a happy one, for it is diffi-
cult to obtain material, and in

their anxiety to publish two
issu a year they are forced to
include much inferior material.
On some of this a blue pencil

uld have been used to correct
ungrammatical and meaningless
English on the part of contribu-
tors, and an irritating number of
dropped letters on the part of
compositors. The remainder
should have been rewarded a
rejection slip. Many of the con-
tributions are very short, and
there are too many blank spaces
and empty half-pages.

The lino cut frontispiece by
John Harrison is not up to the
usual standard of his work, and
the unconnected skeletal torso of
one figure is worrying. Two tail-
pieces by Kathleen Hawkins have
the merit of being clean and
clear, Six excellent photographs
of Haitian life by John Harrison
are spoiled by reproduction on
poor paper.

Mrs, Napier has contributed a
slight sketch entitled “Carnival in
Martinique”, which is almost a
compliment to John Harrison's
interesting article “Aspects of
Haitian Life’, with. its vivid
description of a carnival. Hugh
Popham’s poem “Sleeping Out”

is both gay and charming. Edgar’

Mittleholzer’s sketch “The Sub-
Committee’ has an amusing
twist, and is all the better for its
spontaneity. Geoffrey Drayton's
article “The Recitation of
Poetry” might have been expan-
ded. With his knowledge of
poetry, Geoffrey Drayton is com-
petent to dilate on the music and
meaning of poetry apd their
effect on the. reciter. It was
refreshing to find “Interlude”, a
short story, among so many intro-
spective fragments listed as
“Short Stories’. Cecil Gray
understands the structure of the
short. story. His style is direct,
easy and convincing. The con-
junction “and”, however, is used
too often where a full stop is
needed,

“Some Religious Attitudes in
W.I. Poetry” by E. McG. Keane
attempts an interesting analysis,
which fails because the author
is not clear in his own mind as
to what constitutes a_ religious
attitude, If a poet adopts the use
of a short line following several
much longer lines as in the poem
quoted by George Campbell, this
cannot be said to be a litany,
Derek Walcott’s poem “St. Judas”
is certainly not “One problem of
the orthodox attitude”. It is
highly unorthodox, The “eleva-
tion of Judas Iscariot to the rank
of a martyr” is to repudiate the
meaning of the word “martyr”.
The author, having quoted a few
lines of the poem continues:
“This is however a rather aca-







visitor.4in the enslavement of their fel-

low Africans frequently escapes

This would ensure that meaning-
less ungrammatical sentences are
‘ess frequent, Good style in writing
need not be involved, usually it is
better for being simple.

Readers are informed that Mr.
Stephen Spender was “favourably
impressed by the quality of the
verse” when he stated “his re-
actions to Mr. Lamming’s poetry
ind to West Indian poetry in
general.” “TI am really excited
mbout poets,” ssys Mr. Spender,
“because they give such a strong
mpression of the islands wrabe!
: the important thing is that
we should have a world move-
ment. in poetry” and “, . , here is
a really individual contribution
vhich is highly colourful, and pas-
sionate and idiosyncratic, bringing
an experience of that part of the
werld into a whole world move-
ment of modern poetry”. This
statement will scarcely surprise
readers of Mr, Spender's poetry or
ef his autobiography. Nor will we
be carried away by “a strong im-
tression of the islands” or, the
importance of ‘‘a world movement
of modern poetry” whatever these
may mean.

BIM poets suffer greatly from an
inconsequential stringing together
of words which results in mean-
ingless lines. It is not so muco
that the imagery is confused, or,
that meaning has been sacrificed
to the music of words. Little
attention is paid to form in the
construction of poems, and rhyme
is often forced or false, Constantly
one is compelled to stop and ask
“Why?” or, “What does this
mean?” This is not because the
poem is abstruse, but, because too
many inapposite words are em-
ployed. George W. Lamming’s
poem “Swans” begins:

“By no other name are these

The imperturbable birds more beautiful

No likelicr image for the summer's curl

Of white light caught from the sea's

Arterial cells; or the moon's wry

Face carved on the curved aristocratic

sky”

Swans are not “imperturbable
birds”, for they are capable of
being easily disturbed or agitated.
What are “the sea’s arterial cells”,
and can white light be caught
from them? I doubt it. How is
it possible to have an aristocratic
sky, for this adjective implies a
class of persons, and, in any case
the word is most unmusieal, Yet,
one feels that Mr. Lamming has
something out of the ordinary to
say; there is a striving after poetic
images of real beauty which fail
to materialise because he does not
construe simply.

Derek Walcott’s “Sambo Agon-
istes" cannot be called poetry. The
second and third verses read:

“I was lonely and young on the hills

all the birds

Did me a Dance with their showering

turds,

I was a sagaboy, augur with werds,

contains as its opening:

“Foster flung himself on the

lt is difficult to understand how
th’s feat was achieved. This piece
cf writing is utterly unconvincing.
It is a strain on the reader’s cred-
ulity to be told that a character
who listens to Chopin and formu-
lates a metaphysical theory would
use such ungrammatical language
as “What is t> is must is”.

The essence of a joust is, surely,
that it is a mock fight on horse-
back. There igs no such word as
swordpieced, If this was a joust
there should be no _ vindictive

tally wounded, and at whose feet
is doubtful. Surely the successful
rider’s stirrups are not so long
that his feet touch ground? And
there are other similar passages.
“Red Sky” by A. N. Forde
suffers from the same defects:
“. . .. . and from his bed-
room he could see the tall

some impish delight.

But the morning still didn’t
seem to be itself.” Few readers
will have realised that “tall palm
trees” are able to sway by way
of some sort of experiment. For
my part I have only seen palm-
leaves sway in the breeze, but,
I have never experienced a
“morning that did not seem to be

happen. Later:

on the scene two years ago and

LONDON, December 6.

ACCORDING to a recent estimate by Sir
John Russell, former chairman of UNRRA’s
agricultural sub-committee, if food now being
destroyed annually by pests could be saved,
there would be an end to famine in all coun-
tries suffering from this scourge.

Even in England—a relatively .“pest-free”
country—it has been calculated that 10% of
all crops are lost through this cause. In other
countries—especially in tropical lands, where
parasitic creepers and fungi as well as insects
batten upon precious cultivation—the loss is
about double. India, for instance, together
with her neighbour, Pakistan, are two of the

Africa, too, is another major victim. It has
just been estimated that in certain areas a full

Small wonder that scientists of all nations

put the task of combating these deadly plant

and pest parasites as being a top priority in
current research activities. For not until that
vital percentage of the world’s foodstuffs
now being devoured by these parasites is
diverted to its proper purpose of feeding
human beings, will the twin terrors of mass
starvation and malnutrition be driven from
the earth.

Mercifully, progress toward this goal has
been astonishingly successful in the past
decade. The chemical and the oil industries,
especially, have combined to produce new

while new insecticides, fungicides and weed-
killers—of a potency undreamed of even ten
rears ago—are now in full commercial pro-
duetion.

Both these industries have spent, and are
spending, money without stint on research
programmes essential to the task, and some
of the world’s most brilliant chemists and oil
technologists are pitting their skill and
knowledge against the tsetse fly, the berne,
and other vampiric pests. If the chemical and
oil scientists can win this vital battle, it will

annual report to shareholders,

Although the report was evi-
dently written before the return
of a Conservative Government,
many of the matiers touched on
by Mr. Crossley are still the
subject of lively public debate, His
attack on the present high level of
taxation on company profits and
his criticism of recent legislation
to prohibit the migration of United
Kingdom companies are widely
supported.

The policies now being pursued,
he said; might be fatal to the con-
tinued existence of the sterling
area. Solemn statements were still
issuing from high places about
steps contempla.ed to develop our
resources overseas; but by whom
would these resources now be de-
veloped?

“It seems unlikely, any longer,”
he continued, “that much can be
expected through government
agencies, nor is it likely, in the
main, to be through the operation

“ts not only the unfortunate
shareholders resident in the U.K.
who suffer this disadvantage, but
the local resident overseas, who
cannot take a share in the for.unes
of enterprise carried on by Bi{tish
companies operating in his area
without suffering the penalty of
U.K. tax on the profits of the
company.”

A system which has such results
was clearly out of da.e and must
be amended, he said. Until this
was done, and the profits of U.K.
companies earned overseas freed
from this levy, the disruptive ten-
dencies would continue, with seri-
ous consequences for the whole
currency areas which was centred
on London and whose links with
the business -world of the City
were perhaps the strongest cohe-
sive within it.

The question: “By whom will
Colonial resources now be develop-
ed?” is partly answered in the
same report, which contains a

CONDUCTOR GUILTY OF MURDER

Sentenced To
Be Hanged

The jury took 15 minutes yesterday at thé Court of Grand
Sessions to return a verdict against 40-year-old Alphonza -p
Beckles, a conductor of Society Hill, St. John, of guilty of
murdering 48-year-old Winston Cumberbatch, the ‘bus
driver who. drove the "bus he conducted. Beckles was sen-
tenced by "The Hon. the Acting Puisne Judge, Mr. G. L.

Taylor, to be hanged.

Asked whether he had anything
to say, Beckles said looking to-
wards the jury: “This is my, last
testimony to you. I am telling you
IT am inneeent of the charge... May
the Lord have mercy on your
souls.”

This was the second time
Beckles stood trial for the murder
he was convicted of having com-
mitted on September 9 this year.
On the first occasion, the Judge
was summing up to the jury when
a juror broke down under nervous
excitement and the case had to be
retried.

This second tria) lasted two
days. On the first day the Prose-
culion called 22 witnesses and the
Court one, Yesterday Mr. J. S. B.
Dear, defence counsel, addressed
the jury for an hour and a half,
Mr. W. W. Reece, K.C., Solicitor
General for the Prosecution ad-
dressed for an hour and the Judge
summed up for an hour and a
quarter.

Mr. George Farmer was associ-
ated with Mr. Dear as Defence
Counsel.

Previcus Quarrels

The Prosecution's case was that
Beckles and St lent had had
many quarrels previous to the
murder-and on the morning of the
day of the murder. The two of
them were taking a ‘bus to Dis-
trict “C,.” St. Philip, and were
passing along Thicketts Road when
Beckles — stabbed Cumberbatch
while he was driving.

In his address to the jury yes-
terday, Mr. Dear said that what
they had heard by rumour, con-
versation or otherwise concerning
the trial, had to be discarded. The
verdict they had to give had to be
based on the evidence they had
heard from the witnesses.

“The Prosecutjon’s case,” he
said, “hinges on’ circumstantial
evidence and YT shall devote some
time to dealing with the probative
force of circumstantial evidence.”

The only time a jury could
bring forward a verdict of guilty
of murder on circumstantial evi-
dence was when the only conclu-
sion théy could come to was that
the murdered man could only
have been killed by the accused
If therefore the conclusion that
Cumberbatch could have been
killed other than by Beckles stab-
bing him they could not return
a verdict of guilty of murder.

Complaints
On the morning of September
9, Cumberbatch and Beckles had
made complaints against each other
to the ’bus manager, Mr. O'’Neale,

The next evidence was that
two mensaw the’bus pass not
long before the accident, and
Beckles was in the rear sea

holding his bicycle at that time.

When the bus reached Thicketts
Road, it suddenly ran off the road
and crashed into the guardwall.

“I submit to you,” he said “that
Beckles’ telling witnesses that
Cumberbatch had gone through
the canes was not inexplicable.

With the evidence that the
cushion was found on the wall
outside the bus, it mayvwell be
seen that in ‘the same waydhat
was thrown out, Becktes!»eould
have been thrown out, Because of
this, the conductor may Well have
thought that the man ran through
the canes,

They, the jury, might ask them-
selves why Beckles did not go and
look for Cumberbatch. They
would remember, however, that
the men were not friendly and
Beckles was fearful that Cumber-
batch had intended killing himé
and had afterwards run throug
the canes. :

You may be asked to think that
Beckles was just putting on a bluff
when he told the witnesses that
Cumberbateh had gone through
the canes, But Beckles would not
have been acting in his own in-
terest if he had left Cumberbatch

Greater Food
Output Needed

IN TRINIDAD

Conditions for export crops m

and, oa the waole, satisfactory

cu ture, told the Advocate yester-
day.

He said that there is the need

The Committee has st:essed the
importance of using the land for

reasonable to think that Beckles
would have tried to delay the dis-
,covery of the stabbing so that no
one would have been able to get
any statement from Cumberbatch.

No Dispute

The evidence of Mr. Farmer to
whom Beckles went to get the
‘telephone message, was not in dis-
pute. No one was denying that
Beckles went and telephoned. He
had telephoned, but he had done
‘that because the crash was merely

but that evidence was not corro-

Seaman’s Death Due
To Natural Causés

A nine’ man jury returned a
verdict of death by natural
causes to Coroner C. L, Walwyn
when the hearing in the inquest
concerning the death of 50-year-
old George Taylor, a seaman of
Queen's Street, St. Michael was
ended at District “A” Police Court
yesterday afternoon,

George Taylor who was living
with his cousin Eloise Spelling at
Queen’s Street was taken to the
General Hospital on December 16
ebout 6.15 a.m, and died the same
day about 6.30 p.m.

br. A. S. Cato who performed
the post mortem examination on
December 17 about 1.30 p.m. said
ihat the deceased was identified to
him by Eloise Spelling. Tihe de-
ceased was a badly nourished man
and there were slight haemor-
rhages on the brain. The heart
was flabby and the liver showed
evidence of acute alcoholism, In
his opinion death was due to acute
alccholism,

Eloise Spelling told

Blood Stains

They could infev that the stab
was received when Cumberbatch
fell out of the bus. If they felt
that that was not reasonable be-
cause of the bloodstains which
were seen in the cage, they could
infer that some of the blood stains
were in the cage before. The
cushion had been put under Cum-
berbatch’s head while he was on
the ground and was afterwards
found within the bus. It was reas-
onable to assume that the remain-
der of the blood was brought in
by. the cushion.

He reminded them that the
Prosecution had not brought for-
ward Whitfield Mason to give evi-
dence, Superintendent Grant had
said that the statement Mason had
given was incomplete, yet Mason
had said that he had given a full
statement and had not been ap-
proached for any other statement.

had forgotten if he had been told.
Yet he knew that that would have
been material evidence.

“There is only one view that can
be taken of this,” Mr. Reece for
the Prosecution said when ad-
dressing the jury, “and it is that
there were only two men in the
bus and one was stabbed and it
could only be the other who had

in the service—received a great fillip when a strong London colonies of the B.W.1

As the 1952 Olympic games at
Helsinki areé only just round the
corner—and a British team has to

be--selected — top-class amateur
boxing shows are being watched
with additional interest

The match was boxed under

international (A.1.B.A.) and not
under British A.B.A.) rules. The
main difference between them is
that under international rules, the
referee controls the beut from
inside the ring, whereas under
British rules he does it from a seat
at the ringside. This is how the
bouts will be governed at Helsinki.

Of the boxers on view, it was
the heavy-weights who took the
eye. There were two bouts in this
division, and in each the Army
were represented by former A.B.A
champicns.

In the first, Cpl. Worrall (1949
champion) gained the decision
over his tough opponent Hearn, bv
virtue of some good orthodox
boxing, using the gocd o'd British
Straight-left as a cteady points
Scorer. Hearn was down twice in
thé first round, but in round two,
recovered splendidly to score well
with some solid right hand
punches. But Worrall continued
to bex cleverly and with his
superior ringcraft was able to
keep out of further trouble.

The Army were also victorious
in the other heavyweight contest,
where Private P.’ Toch (1950
A.B.A. champion) was too strong
a puncher fcr his opponent R.
Miles.

In these heavyweight bouts, and
in fact throughout the evening, the
boxers displayed a keenness and
fighting spirit which augurs well
for British Olympic hopes.

But if the Antiguan .lection* will HtUa enthufUfm m Barbados bava nrtt riactnd 24 members to a House of Assembly with more than three hundred years of tradition behind it. the Antigua labour Party 1 "Progress Report" is a very revealing document worthy of study Its attitude •mil for instance is most enlightening In Antigua Labour representatives have. iv. arc told, "met many attempts to dip into the pockets of the dnWOI artth strong oppOatUon, advising that larger grants be sought (from Britain or such other foreign sources as the Truman Point Four Programme, the B Q A, lha Marshall Aid Plan etc." This rathei exceptional attitude towartra taxation is modiffc I a lew sentences late? by the statement that "Antigua pays more j taxes pel head of population than most of the other Caribbean islands of her size." But it is typical of the most amazing paradoxes which abound in this amazing document. "I'n.ii Hepoit" is not so much I report of program In 'he normal accepted sense of the word except as a progress from say bad things to worse. It is a very vivid and uninhibited commentary on Urn state of political llfa in Antigua. A> iiu,' to the report, the eliances of LaOOUri complete success with their "bountiful and far-reaching improvements would have been far greater had two members who went into Council on the Labour platform stuck to their campaign promise. ami supported the faithful elected members." But this damaging admission is repaired almost immediately by blaming "the Constitution which denied the hVpusentatives of the people the right to run their own affairs." Unlike the Barbados Labour Party in its attitude to taxation the Antigua Labour Party also differs in its positive approach to the Tourist Industry. "We will' % %  > the Labour Party of Antigua "do eveiything in our power to encourage and support the development of this trade which van prove a useful and important money earner." The real difficulty about Progress Report is to know what to take seriously and what to neglect as insignificant. But every now and then through its pages a sentence stands out clamouring for attention. How for instance is anyone to interpret the following statement that "it has been agreed by Govanunant and is now the accepted Land Policy that whenever there I Agricultural Lands in any district for the people of the area, landl will be purchased or acquired to meet their needs." Surely such claim supernatural pownri not normally available to political parties. Or how are we to be favourably impressed by the follow lug statement about corn "the main draw-back to its proper handling is UM lack of an individual with the know-how of cornmeal to run the factory, the lack idequate mills and or engines. These minor draw-backs could quite easily be remedied if Government were to take the necessary steps, llrst of all to train technicians and secondly to acquire a germ extracting machine and %  few more small modern mills." it may surpriai the cornpUari of Progress Report that no advantage has been taken inted under the Pioneer Industries Bill up to the present but it will surprise no Intelligent reader ol Prugrev. Report that capital is ehar\ of entering an island where the Govern ment and the nominated element is accused of ruling the community In the way "that has brought Illiteracy, misery. and subjection to Imperialistic exploitation" But if the government ol Barbados were to take tSXI tion much higher it is always possible of courts that capital now in Barbados might be tempted to migrate to Antigua which although much more backward p obviously realises that capital mil i .ui.iilea wrueh are backward illy sometimes show better ecODOI so than 0 %  MOV more _.
