Bill Referred To

Select Committee

The House of Assembly last night passed the second |

reading of the Bill to provid

basis of the report of Sir John Maude and referred it to a

Select Committee.

The Committee comprise Messrs. J. A. Haynes, E. D.

Mottley, V. B. Vaughn, W.

L. E. Smith, E. St. A. Holder C. E. Talma, Dr. Cummins

and Mrs. E. E Bourne.

The proposed new set up will lead to the abolition of

the old Vestry system which

a Mayor and Corporation for the City of Bridgetown.

Most members called for a care~
ful consideration of the Bill whiles
in Select Committee, but complete
objection of it came from Inde-
pendent Junior member for St.
John, Mr. V. B. Vaughan who
thinks that the old system, if re-
formed, is better than the pro-
posed system. He thought the
chief fault of the existing system
is in its set up and claims that
the people for whom it functions
have not been represented during
the last 300 years.

Dr. H. G. Cummins (L) in mov-
ing the second reading of the
Bill said that for all his years in
politics not since the time of the
lowering of the Franchise had
there been so much interest
evinced in a matter such as this
Bill. Like many other members
of the House, he had been ap-
proached by people from all sec-
tions of the community asking
when the House was going to deal
with it.

Dr. Cummins reviewed the his-
tory of the Vestries which Sir John
Maude in his report pointed out

fas scrappy and said that the only

thing Sir John had to assist him
as far as the Vestries were con-
cerned in the early days was a
book written in 1902. by Sir
Charles Clarke, a former Attorney
General of this colony.

He said that in the early days
the Vestries existed for the main-
tenance of the Church and_ the
Churchwardens were elected to
look after the Church’s business.
The Church then instituted a sys-
tem of relief for the benefit of
the poor members and subse-
quently other functions were added
to the Vestries like the Highways
and Sanitary Boards,

Functions Passed On

Today with the exception of St.
Michael who had other, functions
added to its Vestry, the ~other
Vestries existed mainly for the
granting, of Poor Relief, looking
after the Almshouses and admin-.
istering monetary assistance to
the poor of the parishes, etc. \

Centenary Of B’dos
Postage Stamps

OVER one hundred years ago, in August 1851, the first
local legislation, providing for the establishment of a
Postal Service in Barbados was enacted. This legislation
related only to the Inland Post. Prior to this, and dating
as far back as 1663, postal communication with the outside
world, the first in the British West Indies, was maintained
by an Imperial Packet Agency which was operated as a
branch of the British Postal Service.

- sinekgton—ty These two organisations func-
tioned side by side until 1858, the
one in control of the local col-
jection and distribution of postal
matter and the other responsible
for the despatch and importation
of overseas mails.

After a dispute which had
lasted seven years, a final agree-
ment that the Barbados Post
Office should handle overseds as
well as inland mails was reached
in 1858

rested upon his shoulders.

HOLLYWOOD, April, 8.
British film star Robert Newton
|faced another court scene Tues-
| day after paying $15 on a drunk |
disturbance charge in a Municipal |
court. But the scene will be on
the set of Twentieth Century Fox
where Long John Silver of ‘Trea-
sure Island” is playing the part
of a detective in the upcoming
produetion “Les Miserables”.

Newton was arrested for being
“boisterous and noisy” in a sun-
set strip night club early on
Monday. He shrugged off the ex-
perience as_ well worth the fine
and termed those who arrested
him as “really lovely people” al-
though “they had me manacled

THE LAND

IN the chapter dealing with agriculture
in the report of the Comptroller for De-
velopment and Welfare 1951 the agricul-
tural Adviser stressed that further
increases in food production must come
mainly from small producers. The popu-
lation of the West Indies is expanding
rapidly and it must be fed. Steps must
be taken to improve peasant agriculture
to the extent which is essential if the
“present standard of living is to be better-
ed or even maintained”,

The author of this chapter suggests that
agricultural policies of the British Carib-
bean may now need revision, And he
offers four main factors for consideration.
No one will disagree with his main con-
tention that the area must maintain a
high level of production of remunerative

Education is necessary. And the educa-
tion adviser to the Comptroller is ready
with the only remedy that can promote
this education. “The basic problems of the
rural populaticn” he writes “stem from a
generally deficient agricultural produc-
tion, This results in a low standard of
living. It is necessary therefore to devel-
op a school curriculum centred round the
teaching of improved agricultural prac-
tices, home improvement, techniques and
the inculcation of healthy living habits.”

These statements are so self-evident, so
obvious, so basic, so elementary that it is
a great relief to find the experts making
them. We have been warned so often by
so many that there was no short cut to
prosperity and now we are faced with the
inescapable mathematical fact that more
mouths require more food to feed them
and more food ean only result from in-
creased production or increased imports.

Already we are subsidising imported
foods to an extent which alarms the gov-
ernment. We must therefore revise our
whole attitude about the land and our aim
must be “not only to maintain fertility
but to increase it”,

While revenue has increased from agri-
cultural produce in the area, says the ag-
ricultural adviser, agricultural production
in the area as a whole has not increased
appreciably, And that is particularly
serious in view of the diversified agricul-
ture of the region. The highly capitalised
enterprises. of the area which produce
sugar, cocoa, citrus, bananas, arrowroot,
cotton, coffee, ginger and tomatoes are re-
ceiving record prices for their produce but
are “thése prices spread over the small
producers? And are these producers as
efficient as they may be? Already too
much deteriorated land can be found in
the British Caribbean, and unless the
small holder can increase his production
to a level comparable to that of the high-
ly capitalised industries then there will
inevitably be less production and less
food.

The writer of this chapter includes a
quotation made’ by Mr. Page Principal of
the Imperial College of Agriculture at the
Fourth West India Conference in Curacao
in November 1950, The quotation was
from a statement made by the President
of the Agricultural Section of the British
Association for * the Advancement of
Science in 1948 : “If a peaceful world were
to set itself the task of applying the
knowledge we already have....it would
at a very conservative estimate be possi-
ble to double and even treble our produc-
tion of food in a relatively short time”.

In 1951 Barbados increased its output of
sugar by nearly 30,000 tons over 1949—50.
If the enthusiasm and enterprise displayed
by the sugar industry of Barbados could
be harnessed to the service of foods for
local consumption we could take full ad-
vantage of the peaceful conditions under
which we now live. We must produce
more to feed our people. Let us educate
ourselves to make the’best use of the land.
There is no surer way of raising our liv-
ing standards.

N the clear, hard sunshine of this sub-|
; tropical naval base, which ‘lruman
chooses as his iavourite holiday spot, 10,000
navy men are mastering the techniques of a
deadly trade—Anti-Submarine Wartare.

Yhe publicity, in all the talk of a future
war with Soviet Russia, almost always goes |
to the air force or atom bombs and guided
missiles.

Numbers of planes are anxiously com-
puted, Relative performances of Sabre jets
and Russian MIGs are watched with intens-
ity, as if there lies the ultimate key to vic-
tory.

But, with memories of the extremely close
call “last time,’ and with Intelligence re-
ports coming in on the high capabilities of
Russia’s 400-plus subs, America’s top mili-
tary planners regard the work that is going
on here at Key West as perhaps the most
important of all for the survival of the
Western Allies.

They do not encourage questions around
here and huge signs are displayed on doors
and steel fences—“Keep out—this definitely
means you” or “No unauthorised persons at
any time.”

But certain information is available and
“unclassified,” and it reveals glimpses of fan-
tastic advances in undersea warfare.

For example, in the Advance Underseas
Weapons School, the United States Navy is
well along on the development of torpedoes
launchable from submarines outside the lis-
tening range” of enemy ships, which can
| make their way at a designed depth into a
target area, the route of an enemy convoy,
say, or towards an enemy sub.

HEN they get there these “seeing-eye

time, as if endowed with brains of their own,
in a “selected pattern” until their target gets
into range.

Then they pick up speed overtake the tar-

And—the final Jules Verne touch about

these torpedoes can be made to choose the

New Type Of
Fishing Boats
Being Built

AN EXTENS-VE boat
building programme, the larg-
est ever to take place in the
island, is now being carried
out at the grounds of the
Fisheries Office. The type of
boat under construction is an
improved type of the local
fishing boat.-

The new Calvert designed fish-
ing boat, as it is cal-ed, will be 22
feet long, the average length o!
the local fishing boat, These new
boats will replace those which
were destroyed when high seas
pounded the west coast of the
island on December 2 and 3.

It is expected that about 40 new
boats will be built. Already cver
a dozen greenheart keels have ar-
rived from British Guiana, but
now the Fisheries Officer is await-
ing the arrival of Santa Maria
hardwood from British Honduras
for deadwood and transoms.

The boat has been so designed
that it can easily be converted into
a power boat while it is im-
possible to equip the present type
of fishing boat without extensive
renovations.

Ballast

It wil carry more than half of
its ballast on the keel. e pres-
ent fishing boats have no outside
ballast but their ballast (scrap
iron inside the boat) has to be
shifted from port to starboard
whenever the boat tacks.

The Calvert fishing boat will
carry 1,460 pounds of ballast on
its keel. This will prevent it
from overturning easily when
struck by a sudden gust of
wind, Only about 600 pounds of
ballast will be inside the boat.

The outside ballast will be
made of scrap iron and concrete
and will be bolted to the wood-
en keel. The new boat can
easily carry a two-man crew
since the inside bollast will be
very little.

Ribs of the new boats are made
of ahogany and white cedar,
the planking, masts and booms of
silverbali, The mainsail will be
similar to that on the present
type of fishing boat, but will car-
ry reef points.

To assist with this extensive
building programme, the House of
Assembly in January passed a
resolution for $70,000. The cost
of building the 40 new boats was
estimated at approximately $40,-
000 and that of repairing the 43
demaged boats at approximately
$10,000.

Assistance

After hearing of the severe
damage to the local fishing feet,
Jamaica and British Honduras
offered practical assistance to the
island,

Funds were provided by the
Government of Jamaica to send
to Barbados material to assist in
the replacements of the boats and
in consequence, the Governor of
Jamaica sent asa free gift, sail of
suit: ble weight.

The Governor of British Hon-
duras - offered@a gift of Santa
Maria hardwood which wil! pro-
vide deadwood and transoms for
the boats.

The build’mg programme is pro-
gressing rapidly. In the first
stage men were employed. sawing
up tree trunks into timber size.
Now other men are working on the
plonks and keels,

The sail makers have also gone
into action. It is expected that
by the end of next week the keels
of nearly a dozen boats would
have been laid at the grounds of
the Fisheries Office.

NO DECISION

(From Our Own ¢.orrespondent)
LONDON, April 8,

No decision was reached at
today’s meeting between Mr.
Allan Lennox-Boyd and the joint
deputation from the Caribbean
Labour Congress (London
branch) and the West Indian
Students Union who were bring-
ing charges of alleged suppres-
sion of civil liberties in West
Indian colonies,

The Minister of State flr the
Colonies told the deputation he
had another appointment which
would not permit him to spend
the time with them he had
promised, and it was therefore
agreed to have another meeting
at a date not yet fixed, A state-
ment from the West Indian depu-
tation may be seleased tomor-
row.

“THE BOAT BUILDING PROGRAMME at the grounds of the

$99,000 For
Upkeep Of
St. Philip

The St. Philip Vestry yesterday
agreed to spend $99,000 on the

up-keep of the parish for the
parochial year 1952—53, and
fixed the rate on land at $5.40
per acre, and that on trade and
property at 27 cents in the dollar.

The rates laid for this year
represent an increase of 45 cents
on the acre as against the rate
for last year, and an increase of
2% cents on the rate for trade
and property.

Almost 2/3 of the estimated
Expenditure for the present year
will be devoted to Poor Relief on
which they estimate to spend
$61,777 as against $55,823 spent
during the last parochial year.

There will also be an increase
on the amount to be spent on
sanitation, the figure estimated
for this year being $10,660 as
against $9,399 spent last year.

These figures to a large extent
include increases on salaries
approved by the Vestry at its
last meeting. Another $1,720 is
put aside to be spent on repairs
to buildings, while the vote on
Education remained at $2,100.

The Vestry agreed on the
motion of Mr. D. D. Garner to
raise the rent charged on Cholera
Ground from $4.80 to $7.20.

They deferred consideration of
a motion by Mr. D. Brathwaite
that the Vestry consider the im-
mediate installation of electricity
at the Almshouse, pending a re-
port from Mr. H. L. Smith who
promised to investigate the pos-
sibility of obtaining a suitable
generating plant during his visit
to England.



Policemen Put
Out House Fire

Prompt action by Police Con-
stables Walter King, Forde, and
Standford brought under control
quickly a burning kitchen which
was attached to a double-roofed
house and shed at Friendship Gap,
Turning.

The house is the property of
Mrs. Irene Worrell who was one
of the occupants at the time of the
fire. Another occupant, Clarice
Walters, was cooking on the fire-
hearth when a strong wind blew
in the kitchen and the fire caught
the roof.

The three policemen, members
of the search party on the hunt for
an escaped prisoner, saw the fire
and rushed to the scene with the
van. They were assisted by Rev.
Vorreli’s son and many others
who brought a hose and buckets
of water.

Police Constable King was
wounded on his head while lifting
a part of the burning kitchen. He
worked until the fire was out and
then he went to the General Hos-
pital where he was treated. _

When the Fire Brigade arrived
on the scene, the fire had been
completely put out. The house was
not insured. '

SNAKE KILLED

Lawson Knight of Thomas Gap,
Westbury Road, killed a snake
about seven inches long on the
waterfront yesterday. The black
spotted snake was found among
some mangoes which were being
discharged by the M.V. Caribbe.
The Caribbee arrived here on
Monday evening from Dominica.

The snake did not cause any
alarm, however, as it was too small
to scare anyone around the Carib-
bee’s berth, Knight killed it with
a hammer.

J. M. Kidney Again

Chairman

Of St. M.

Sanitary Board

MR. J. M. KIDNEY was re-elected Chairman of ‘the

Sanitary Board of St. Michael when they met at the poned

Parochial Buildings yesterday afternoon.

Hon. V. C. Gale, who moved that Mr. Kidney be re- Duncans, St.

appointed, said that Mr. Kidney had served as Chairman
for many years and had done the job very satisfactorily.

He was sure that everyone
was with them for another

Insurauece On St.
Philip’s Parochial
Builditigs Doubled

The Vestry of St. Philip yes-
terday decided to insure all the
parochial buildings for full value
against fire and other risks alike,
at a total value of double the
amount for which it was former-
ly insured,

The decision was taken after
the Churchwarden, Mr. H. L,
Smith, had reported to the Ves-
try that he had discussed the
question of full value against
fire, and half value against other
risks as suggested at the last
meeting by Mr. R, B. Skeete,
and that the had discovered that
while this method would result
in a saving of $166 annually, the
saving did not justify the risks
involved.

He explained that under the
method suggested by Mr. Skeete,
they could only claim the amount
for which they were covered,
whether there was total destruc-
tion or not. When under the
full value insurance policy, they
could claim to the extent of the
damage done, even up to the full
value.

The Vestry postponed consid-
eration of an application by a
monthly parochial pensioner for
an increase oh monthly pensions
in keeping with the increase
voted recently by the Vestry for

weekly paupers.

Speaking on the matter, Mr.
H. L. Smith, the Churchwarden
said he was at a loss to know
what to do in the particular case,
because in putting up his mo-
tion to increase the weekly pen-
sions from 72 cents to $1.00, he
had borne in’ mind that there
would be some legitimate cases
for increases to monthly pensions,
but on the other hand he did not
think it reasonable to increase
the pensions of those who had

resigned only a year ago, and

on the basis of their last paid)

salaries, sess :
He suggested that a Committee

be set up to go into the matter,
but on a motion by Mr. D. D.
Garner, the Vestry decided to
potspone further consideration
until a further date.

The Vestry re-appointed Mr.
C. O. Tudor as their Auditor for
the year 1952-53, after agreeing
to an increase on the retainer
now paid to Mr. Tudor, The in-
crease was given on Mr. Tudor’s

application. a

‘CYRIL E. SMITH’ CALLS

The 56-ton schooner Cyril E.

prising 84 tons of firewood, 250
bags of charcoal and crates of

session.
Mr. Kidney thanked members

very much for reappointing him
and said that he would attribute
his success to the cooperation he
got from members.

The Sanitary Commissioners,
under the Head, Correspondence,
received a number of letters from
nearly the whole sanitary staff
asking ‘or increases in salaries.

Mr. Geddard moved that the
whole lot be rejected as they had
just allowed a cost of living
bonus.

Mr. Tuppin seconded Mry God-
dard’s motion, He felt that the
staff was adequately paid. Théy
got better salaries than some
City clerks,

Mr. Mottley did not agree with
turning down the whole lot as he
felt there may be some cases
deserving of consideration.

Hen, V.C. Gale felt that if they
were going to increase one or
two, they would have to increase
all.

Mr. C. B, Layne supported Mr,
Mottley and said; “When you get
applications coming from _ the
Chief Sanitary Inspector down,
there must be some dissatisfac-
Uion,”

Mr. Chase agreed with “Mr.
Gale that they could not increase
one or two without considering
giving a general increase. He
howéver ‘did not think the time
was ripe for increases since they

had recently allowed a cost of
living bonus.
Mr Mottley’s motion was de-

feated by a six—two majority and
Mr, Goddard’s motion: “That the
whole lot of applications be re-
jected,” carried,

At the meeting of the Sanitary
Commissioners yesterday, mem-
bers decided that the estimate for
the year 1952-53 will be $229,042

Members congratulated Mr. L
B. Sharpe, Clerk to the Com-
missioners, for the simplicity with
which he prepared the estimates
They were able to get through
with the estimates in a short time.

When dealing with the Head,
Building Inspector, it was sug-
gested that the Board inform
Government that Mr, S$ W.
Taylor, Building Inspector, wotild
ye of more service if attached to
the Housing Board, as his services

with the Commissioners were
very limited. With that Board
he could also be given an in-

crease in salary.

Members present were: Mr. J.

A. R. Toppin, Mr. E, 'D, Mottley,

Tne VéStry system had been
criticised by" many local peopie
and he remembered the late Mr.

Laurie Yearwood, a member o:
the St. Michael Vestry saying that
the system at that time was con-
sidered outdated,

When the sioyne Commission
visited the island in 1938 to inves-
tigate the existing conditions
which had brought about the 1937
disturbances, they too felt that thr
system as existed then was out of
date and not suitable for present-
aay needs.

Unsuitable

They also had reports of C.M.O’s
aS to the unsuitability of the pres-
ent system and he was very
pleased that they were embarking
on the Bill that day to change the
whole set up which had proved
to be archaic and were replacing
it by something of a more modern
nature.

He said that honourable mem-
bers would remember that only
about three years ago, the House
amended the Vestry Act to give
the Vestries authority to lease, buy
cr rent land for the purpose of
developing playing fields and
community halls. They knew that
in those parishes where commu-
nity halls and playing fields ex-
isted, in most of them, the Vestry’s
enthusiasm was at a very low ebb.

Just a few weeks ago he said
that the parish of St. George had
made an application to’ the Gov
ernment for additional funds to
start playing fields. He also men-
tioned of a community hall being
set up in one of the country par-
ishes and was finished for some
months and yet the people in the
district had never used it and were
constantly asking when it was
going to be opened.

The present Vestries with the
exception of one or two had shown
no enthusiasm in such matters
which they were prepared to pro-
vide for the: people in the several
districts of-the island with the
implementation of this new Bill.

ly the City of Bridgetown, and
the Northern and Southern Dis-
tricts.

When the Bill was introduced
towards the end of the last session
ine Govermiment heeded to the
opinion of some people that there
was too big a jump to go from
11 to three districts and the last
bill set out that. there should be
six areas. They had since reverted
to three districts in accordance
with the recommendation made
by Sir John in his report because
it was felt that to have six local
government areas would be ex-
pensive.

As set out in the objects and
reasons of the bill, Part Il deals
with the franchise for local Gov-
ernment elections. It provides
that every British subject of full
age residing in the electoral area
or occupying premises in the
area having an annual value of
not less laan ifty dollars shal. be
entitled to Vote but no person shall
be allowed to vote in more than
one area, The Clerk of the City
Council or the Clerk of each dis-
trict Council wil] be the registra-
tion officer for his own area and
will prepare each year a spring
register and an autumn register
containing the names of the per-
6ons enllled to vote at local gov-
ernment elections.

Part Ill deals with the general
provisions as to members and
meetings of local authorities and
elections; it should be read in
conjunction with the Fourth
Schedule, which contains further
letails as to their proceedings. A
veneral code is provided, dealing
with the qualifications (Clause 29)
and disqualifications for office; the
latter include disqualifications on
the ground that the candidate has
a pecuniary interest in a contract
with the local authority (Clause
31). The Mayor, Aldermen and
Councillors of the City and the
Chairrran, Aldermen and Coun-
cillors of q District are required
to make a declaration of accep-
tance of office (Ci.32), They may
resign by giving notice in writing
to the clerk of the Council and
will cease to hold office if they
fail to attend any meeting of the
Council for six consecutive
months, (Cl. 33,84). Clauses 36—
38 contain provisions dealing with
casual vacancies, Meetings and
proceedings of Councils are to be
conducted in accordance with the
provisions of the Fourth Schedule
(cl. 39), and provision is made for
dealing with certain offences in
connection with elections such as
defacing nomination and ballot

pagers and personation (cl. 40—

Part IV states that Clause 45
makes it obligatory for every
local authority to appoint a fin-
ance committee and provides that
no liability exceeding $500.00 in
the case of the City Council, or
$250.00 in the case of a District
Council, shall be incurred by a
council, except upon a resolution
passed on an estimate submitted
»y the finance committee, Clause

by means of a committee, The

vided for in Clauses 47—48.

Part V of the Bill deals princi~
pally with the appointment of offi-'
cers. It provides in Clause 49 that |
every Council shall, with the sone |
sent of the Governor, appoint a
clerk of the Council and a treasur- |
‘r, and that no officer so appointed '
shall be dismissed except with the |
‘onsent of the Governor. Clause
59 provides that the Governor, may

tors on such terms as the Governor
may direct. Provision is made for
the appointment of such other offi-
cers and staff as the Council think
1ecessary without reference to the
Governor (Cl, 51). Power is given

pose of providing pensions and

Part VI of the Bill, dealing with
rating and valuation, states that
the City Council and District
Councils are constituted ating
authorities and authorised to levy
a general rate at a uniform amount
per dollar on the rateable value
of each hereditament in their area
and also special rates in specified
parts of their areas to provide for
abnormal or extraordinary expen-
diture for those parts of the areas.
Power is given to remit the pay-
ment of rates on the grounds of
poverty (cl. 57, 58). The rate
is to be borne and paid by the

owner_of the hereditament but the the

amount may be paid by the occu-
pier and deducted from any rent
payable by him to the owner
(cL 61), Clauses 63—66 deal with
the procedure for publishing a
rate, demand notes, discount, and
recovery of rates; a detailed pro-
cedure for recovery rates is set out
in the Fifth Schedule. The fol-
lowing hereditaments are exempt-
ed from rates; chattel houses, if
owneu-occupied and the annual
value does not exceed fifty dollars,
places of public religious worship,
and burial ground (cl. 67, 68).
The next group of Clauses (69—
84) deal with the valuation of
hereditaments for the purpose of
rating. Valuations lists are to be
prepared by valuation officers ap-
appointed by the Governor and
revised every five years (cl. 69,
70). The rateable value of a here-
ditament is the rent at which it
might reasonably be expected to
let from year to year if the tenant
undertook to bear the cost of the
repairs, insurance and other ex-
penses to maintain it in a state to
command that rent (cl, 72).
Clauses 73—81 deal in detail with
the procedure for preparing and
revising valuation lists, for lodg-
ing objections, and for appeals to
the Assistant Court of Appeal in
cases of disagreement. A valua-
tion officer is given power to re-
quire owners to make returns and
to enter hereditaments for the pur-
pose of poking a survey and valu-
ation (cl. 82, 83).

Part VII deals with trade tax.
Every Council is empowered to
levy a tax, to be known as a trade
tax, on the annual profits accruing
fvom trade carried on in their
area at sugh rates as may be pre-
scribed by the Council. The as-
sessable income of any person for
the purpose of this tax is to be
determined in the same manner as
the income of a person derived
from sag determined under the
Income Tax Act 1921, except that
no deductions are to be made in
respect of annuities, life insurance
premiums, and personal allow~-
ances (cl. 85 and 86). Persons
whose assessable income does not
exceed $1,000 are exempt from
trade tax (cl. 87), The tax is to
be assessed by the Commissioner
of Income Tax and the provisions
of the Income Tax Act 1921 relat-
ing to the making of returns, as-
sessments and appeals are applied
with the necessary modifications
and adaptions (cl. 88). The Com-
missioner of Income Tax is re-
quired to transmit the assessment
to the Council concerned as soon as
it is made and the clerk of the
Council is authorised to demand
the tax from the person charged

Part VIII deals with a general
code for the acquisition and dis-
posal of land Councils. It is

mittee, acquire a by agreement

Part IX states that as provided
in Clause 99, every Council shall
prepare and submit to the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee be-
fore the commencement of the fin-
ancial year an estimate of the in-
come and expenditure of the
Council for that year; the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee
may approve the estimate with or
without m cations but the total
amount may not be increased. The
Governor-in-Executive Committee
may make contributions out of
moneys provided the Legisla-
ture towards ture incurred
by a Council for the of
discharging any of their ions
(cl. 101). All receipts of a Coun-
cil are to be carried to a Council
general rate fund and all liabili-
ties are to be discharged out of
that fund (cl. 102) (1) ). Clause
102 (2) provides for separate ac-
counts to be kept for certain pur-
poses.

Part X, dealing with borrowing,
states that the borrowing powers
of Councils can only be exercised
with the consent of the Govenor-
in-Executive Committee. The
general purposes for which money
may be borrowed are set out in
Clause 104. Power to borrow
money by way of temporary over-
draft from a bank is given by
Clause 105,

Part XI provides that the ac-
counts of every Council, commit-
tee and joint committee are to be
audited by the Auditor General
(cl, 107, 108). All accounts are
to be made up yearly to the end
of the financial year and within
fourteen days of the completion.
of the audit the Auditor General
is to report on the accounts to
the Council or committee or joint |
committee as the case may be (cl.
110—112). The Audited accounts
are to be published in the Official

occasions been approached by
people, even from St. Philip, who
asked for the Maude Bill to be
dealt with as soon as possible.
It was hoped that the bill would

majority of people of this limited |
franchise, who have been able to

parish of St. Michael, the assess- |
ors have been very afraid of as- |
sessing many of those people at
the true value because their boss-
es sat on those boards as vestry- |
men and might be able to harm |
them ”

As a result, he said, many of |
the “small people” who were not
qualified had to bear the brunt.
“Small properties have been
rated high and large properties |
have been rated low”.

He said he did not find it set

they were not sending it to a

to spénd many a night there de-

He observed, he said, that ar-

gratuities to all those employed,
except those who came under the

would say that it was hardly fair
for one to be employed with the
understanding that the position
taken is a pensionable one and
then were faced with such a
change that they would get no

because of the power vested in
them to enact such legislation as
would take away the pensionable
right. This would affect organ-
ists, sextons and such like,

a Mayor and Corporation is long
overdue,” he said.

He believed that if they had
changes in these modern days and
they could satisfy him that such
changes were for the improve-
ment of local conditions, they
should give it a trial. But he would
counsel members not to be guided
by the idea of centralising things
into three rather than six. Any
Vestryman present, anyone who
had had to deal with local admin-
istration would see that even if
they made a saving in ohe way,

without the personal touch, the
man-of-the-district knowledge,
everything would not run as

smoothly.

He was not voting for it because
it was better than the present
system, he said, but merely be-
cause he felt that these were the
days when they should move on.
They could hope that they would
not have similar experience as
the citizens of Port-of-Spain were
having with their Mayor and Cor-
poration.

Mr, J. A. Haynes (E) said that
one of the chief points they had
to concern themselves with was
whether the proposed system was
better than the old system.

It was years now, he said, since
he started to advocate that there
should be a reform of the Vestry
system, of land taxation and
that they should not be in a
position in which the Vestry
found itself mixed up with the
Church. There were anomalies
in the old system — the Church-
warden, an executive of the par-
ish, and yet in many of the par-
ishes the Churchwardens were
not Anglicans or in same cases,
churchmen at all. He _ himself
was not a churchman and yet he
held the post of Churchwarden
for some years.

The anomalies belonged to the
days when the Vestry system was
the only type of organisation for
local Government. But as_ the
Senior Member for the City had

tlon
that they in this had done some-
thing worthy of note.

“But under the present Bill,”
he said, “I see some other anoma-
lies coming up which are very

disconcerting to a Vestryman
like myself with 30 years’ ex-
perience, That is why I ‘am

counselling members not to look
at this matter from a party view
but from a general point of view
because it is for general good.”

Town Planning

He would point out, he said,
that the Bill should go in con-
junction with the future Public
Health Bill. Those two Bills
were very associated. Another
Bill which was bound to come
was the Town and Country Plan-
ning. It was very difficult to
form. a structure of.a building or
of anything concrete or other~-
wise. without the whole thiag
being put together before. Tha
was where, he believed the Bult
would fall down, They would
pass it and find that such and
such would not work.

They were going to tear out 18
Acts out of the statute book with
the passing of the Bill — not that
he was in favour of them. They
had to remember that they did

not want _something of mere
ethereal heights, but something

practical.

He, like the Senior Member for
the City, he said, would support
the Second Reading, but he
hoped that the members of the
Select Committee and members
when it went into committee in
the House, would take a serious
view of all the sections.

He said the Vestry’s con-
sideration of spending money for
various items really correspond-
ed to Resolutions in the House,
Then with few limitations, they
were capable of spending and
there was no revising ohamber.
So one of the things he would
compliment was the proposed re-
vision by the Governor-in-Exe-
cutive Committee. J

There was a glaring point in
the draughtsmanship which to this
mind fell down, Therefore under
conditions sof changes, he was
supporting it, but if they did not
come t& earth in those various
matters, they would find that
the last state was worse than the
first.

Mr. V. B. Vaughn (I) who
spoke against the Bill and said
that the present Vestry system
reformed would be better than
the proposed change, told mem-
bers that he had first hand in-
formation of the working of Ves-
tries as he had once been a Ves-
try employee and another time
a Vestryman.

He said that they had to be
careful that in their attempts at
moving forward they did not re-
main in the same place or indeed,
go back. He was in complete
disagreement with the Vestry
system, he said. With the excep-
tion of the Mayor and Corpora-
tion for the city of Bridgetown,
the Vestry system in the remain-
ing areas only needed certain
reforms and not abolition, There
should be no substitution of two
districts for the remaining 10.

He said that the Report on the
system had been arrived at by a
misconception and Sones the
system with the English Local
Government.

Any defects in the present sys-
tem were due to the delay in
changing the qualifications for
membership. These changes in
qualifications Were overdue for
nearly 50 years. One particular
class in the community had been

dominating and the people for
whom it functioned were not re-
presented.

One of the greatest criticisms
made against the system, he said,
was that the island was too little
to have 11 Vestries. He, however,
would quote figures to show that
any observation of their being too
many Vestries would not altogeth-
er be a wise observation, To,every
4.000 inhabitants in the United
Kingdom, he said, there was one

saw that everything con- changed and the future genera-, ative as possible, there were 6,000
of Barbados would consider to each autonomous local author-

ity. In Barbados there were 18,000
as compared with 6,000.

As to the question of assessing,
it was always said that the areas
were too small to be economic,
but it was not established that
when they amalgamated the par-
ishes for the new system of local
Government, it would become
more economical. It all depended
on tHe service they intended sup-
plying.

Mrs. Bourne (L) said she was
surprised to hear it said that the
present Vestry system was not
antiquated, She, and others would
agree with her, felt it suited the
Elizabethan age.

She said that the present forms
of taxation were most unsatisfac-
tory, the failing to tax certain
things connected with large fac-
tories, and it was to eradicate all
the evils of the system that they
intended changing it.

Mr. J, Mottley (C) said that the
Bill was one of such magnitude
that members should consider it
very seriously.

Mr. L. A. Williams (L) observed
that the question was whether
they were going to change the
system or modify it. The operating
system was not perfect and the
whole purpose of the Bill was to
try and do something to remove
the imperfections.

He felt that instead of three cen-
tres, there should be four or five.
He was in agreement with the
Junior Member for St. Andrew
when she said that the Public
Health Act should at least come
into effect with the Bilt.

Concluding, Mr. Williams ob-
served that there was a dying
interest in local government

affairs, and he therefore felt that
if the Bill went through, quite a
number of young men would be
prepared to “ginger up” that dying
interest,

He said that even from the point
of view of the United Kingdom,
there had been the tendency for
people to take a greater interest
in the affairs of the Central Gov-
ernment than they took in the
affairs of local government.

He observed that within recent
years, records tended to show
that little interest was taken in
local government affairs, and this
was borne out by the fact that
there is no contest in many of the
Vestry elections. He felt therefore
that if the Local Government Bill
were passed, along with a new
Public Health Bill and a Town
Planning Bill, it would do much
to “ginger up” the interest now
being taken in the affairs of local
government.’

He said that in supporting the
Bill, he would counsel them that
it was largely a question of going
cautiously, trying as they went
along to see the weaknesses,
remedy them and try where pos-

sible to make it a practical suc-
cess.



Anti-Red Campaign
Launched In
East Germany

BERLIN, April, 7.

An Anti ~ Communist under-
ground group to-day urged East
Germans to offer passive resis-
tance to the main exploitation of
workers in East Germany and
picked a snail as a symbol in their
campaign. The organisation which
operates within East Germany's
Red Trade Union appealed from
West Berlin to the eastern work-
ers and employees to paint snails
secretly on factory and office
walls, fences and bridges, “The

Speed of the snail symbolizes the |

pace of “the progress” in East
Germany and provides an exam-
ple of how to oppose any further
increase of production quotas”, it

Three Stab Wounds

Mr. Colin Vaughan told the

Glenville Hart of Belair, St.
Philip said that on December 17
about 1 p.m. he was in St. Philip
at Qutram’s house. While there
he saw the accused, While Keelyn
Barton was walking in the road,
the accused took something from
his pocket and “made a catch at
Keelyn and made-a stab at her

back.”
The accused ran after Keelyn
and while running he (the ac-

cused) dropped a knife. The ac-
cused after pointed a revolver at
him while he (Hart) was stand-
ing at Outram’s house. He knocked
the revolver out of the hand of
the accused and an Island Con-
stable arrested the accused,

A man named Gibson took up
the revolver and the knife. The
accused also took up a cane bill
and made attempts to cut him with
at.

James Gibson of Stroud Land,
St. Philip said he was at Miss
Outram’s house on December 17
when he saw the accused,

Stabbed

While he was talking to Miss
Outwam he heard the accused say
something to his wife. About ten
minutes after Keelyn Barton
passed by Miss Outram’s home.
Just as Keelyn Barton was going
up the road the accused rushed
to her with a knife and stabbed her
in the back,

The accused dropped the knife
while running. The accused also
took out a revolver out of his
pocket and pointed it ‘> Hart.
Hart rushed at the accused and
the revolver dropped from the
hand of the accused,

He took up the revolver and the
accused was held, Later a police-~

Water Polo Season

SWIMMING SPORTS SOON

WHEN the Barbados Amateur Water Polo and Swim-

the Barbados Aquatic Club on Monday it was decided that

the 1952 season would begin

=



Bannister

Needs Serious
Tests

f Says PETER WILSON

To run or not to run?—that is
the question. Roger Bannister,
so far Britain’s best post-war
miler, who is inevitably _com-
pared with the late great Jack
Lovelock—they both ran for Ox-
ford, and then both became
medical students—seems to have

the ' Same, ideas, as, the 1936
Olympic 1,500 metres champion.
Lovelock used to train for a

peak performance on one speci-
fie day.
In, say, May, June or July he

would not mind who beat him,
But—-to take a hypothetical case
—if he'd made up his mind to
win.a race, whether it was in
Tooting or Timbuctoo, in the first
pees in August, you would have
to. be a world-beater to lick him
that afternoon.

I had lunch with Bannister
before the Oxford and’ Cam-
bridge athletic meeting — in
which, after announcing the
event, he was the first to con-
gratulate the slow-pulsed Chris
Chataway who had just broken
his. inter-Varsity record — and
Jolly Roger told me that he did
not mean to do much competi-
tive running before the event of
the year—the 1,500 metres at
Helsinki.

This probably explains why he
will not be running in the indoor
athletic meeting at Harringay
tomorrow and Saturday,
although Bill Nankeville—whom
Bannister beat for the A.A.A.
mile title last year—will be com-
peting, together with European
800 metres champion, John Par-
lett, and the Northerner Len
Eyre.

Two Kinds
It certainly explains why he
will not be flying to California
with McDonald Bailey to com-
pete in the Coliseum relay meet~-
ing at Los Angeles on May 16.

Instead, the red-roofed Chata-
way will be taking his place
there.

There are, of course, two kinds
of milers. One excels in running
against the clock, with assistance
from the other competitors.

I always felt that Sydney
Wooderson was of this type. His
then world-record-breaking mile
of 4 mins, 6.4 secs. was put up in
a specially framed handicap race

ut the only disappointing
race I ever saw Sydney run was
in the Princeton “Mile of the
Century” (America had a “Mile
of the Century” every year be-
fore the war), when he was the
only Englishman in an_ inter-
national field.

ana Tim Tarilton yield in
the first innings against

Trinidad in the 1927 Tri-

angular toarngmens at

Kensington?

If a player is ruled “off-

side’ in water-polo, does

on Monday, May 12th.

Various committees were ap-
pointed to look after the running
of the association.: The 8 ing
Committee was asked to take im-
mediate steps to arrange a train-
ing programme for the forthcom- '
ing visit of a Barbados Swimming
Team to Venezuela in August or 3.
September, and it was ‘hoped that
this committee would be able to
organise without delay a swim-
ming competition for the associa-
tion; The Gear Committee was
asked to make the water polo gear
available for practice as soon as
possible,

Referees for the various leagues
were appointed and emphasis was
Jaid on the registr ation of “A”
players in the men’s senior league,
A Committee comprising Boo
Patterson, Jack Knight and Ken
Ince were appointed to examine
all registration cf “‘A” players in
this league before the season
began.

It was also unanimously agreed

that the association continue
its affiliation to the Federa-
tion Internationale de Nata-
tion Amateur (the Interna=
tional Organisation governing
water polo). The meeting ended

after the Hbn. Secretary was in-
structed to write the Ty inidad
Water Polo Association to confirm
that October would be suitable
for that Association to send a
Water Polo team to Barbados.

E. PROCTOR





Lovelock, on the other hand,
preferred the cut and thrust of a
competitive, mile, and I always
got the feeling that to him and
Bannister beating the opposition
is more important than the time
taken to do so.

However, there are little more
than a hundred days to the open-
ing of the Olympics, and al-
though I know he is practising
vigorously I can't helny feeling
that Bannister, needs some fairly
serious miling, irrespective of the
results, to iron out any kinks
which may have developed in his
style during the winter, and to
sharpen him up mentally.

Most members called for a care~
ful consideration of the Bill whiles
in Select Committee, but complete
objection of it came from Inde-
pendent Junior member for St.
John, Mr. V. B. Vaughan who
thinks that the old system, if re-
formed, is better than the pro-
posed system. He thought the
chief fault of the existing system
is in its set up and claims that
the people for whom it functions
have not been represented during
the last 300 years.

Dr. H. G. Cummins (L) in mov-
ing the second reading of the
Bill said that for all his years in
politics not since the time of the
lowering of the Franchise had
there been so much interest
evinced in a matter such as this
Bill. Like many other members
of the House, he had been ap-
proached by people from all sec-
tions of the community asking
when the House was going to deal
with it.

Dr. Cummins reviewed the his-
tory of the Vestries which Sir John
Maude in his report pointed out

fas scrappy and said that the only

thing Sir John had to assist him
as far as the Vestries were con-
cerned in the early days was a
book written in 1902. by Sir
Charles Clarke, a former Attorney
General of this colony.

He said that in the early days
the Vestries existed for the main-
tenance of the Church and_ the
Churchwardens were elected to
look after the Church’s business.
The Church then instituted a sys-
tem of relief for the benefit of
the poor members and subse-
quently other functions were added
to the Vestries like the Highways
and Sanitary Boards,

Functions Passed On

Today with the exception of St.
Michael who had other, functions
added to its Vestry, the ~other
Vestries existed mainly for the
granting, of Poor Relief, looking
after the Almshouses and admin-.
istering monetary assistance to
the poor of the parishes, etc. \

Centenary Of B’dos
Postage Stamps

OVER one hundred years ago, in August 1851, the first
local legislation, providing for the establishment of a
Postal Service in Barbados was enacted. This legislation
related only to the Inland Post. Prior to this, and dating
as far back as 1663, postal communication with the outside
world, the first in the British West Indies, was maintained
by an Imperial Packet Agency which was operated as a
branch of the British Postal Service.

- sinekgton—ty These two organisations func-
tioned side by side until 1858, the
one in control of the local col-
jection and distribution of postal
matter and the other responsible
for the despatch and importation
of overseas mails.

After a dispute which had
lasted seven years, a final agree-
ment that the Barbados Post
Office should handle overseds as
well as inland mails was reached
in 1858

Robert Newton
In Court Again

HOLLYWOOD, April, 8.
British film star Robert Newton
|faced another court scene Tues-
| day after paying $15 on a drunk |
disturbance charge in a Municipal |
court. But the scene will be on
the set of Twentieth Century Fox
where Long John Silver of ‘Trea-
sure Island” is playing the part
of a detective in the upcoming
produetion “Les Miserables”.

Newton was arrested for being
“boisterous and noisy” in a sun-
set strip night club early on
Monday. He shrugged off the ex-
perience as_ well worth the fine
and termed those who arrested
him as “really lovely people” al-
though “they had me manacled

THE LAND

IN the chapter dealing with agriculture
in the report of the Comptroller for De-
velopment and Welfare 1951 the agricul-
tural Adviser stressed that further
increases in food production must come
mainly from small producers. The popu-
lation of the West Indies is expanding
rapidly and it must be fed. Steps must
be taken to improve peasant agriculture
to the extent which is essential if the
“present standard of living is to be better-
ed or even maintained”,

The author of this chapter suggests that
agricultural policies of the British Carib-
bean may now need revision, And he
offers four main factors for consideration.
No one will disagree with his main con-
tention that the area must maintain a
high level of production of remunerative

Education is necessary. And the educa-
tion adviser to the Comptroller is ready
with the only remedy that can promote
this education. “The basic problems of the
rural populaticn” he writes “stem from a
generally deficient agricultural produc-
tion, This results in a low standard of
living. It is necessary therefore to devel-
op a school curriculum centred round the
teaching of improved agricultural prac-
tices, home improvement, techniques and
the inculcation of healthy living habits.”

These statements are so self-evident, so
obvious, so basic, so elementary that it is
a great relief to find the experts making
them. We have been warned so often by
so many that there was no short cut to
prosperity and now we are faced with the
inescapable mathematical fact that more
mouths require more food to feed them
and more food ean only result from in-
creased production or increased imports.

Already we are subsidising imported
foods to an extent which alarms the gov-
ernment. We must therefore revise our
whole attitude about the land and our aim
must be “not only to maintain fertility
but to increase it”,

While revenue has increased from agri-
cultural produce in the area, says the ag-
ricultural adviser, agricultural production
in the area as a whole has not increased
appreciably, And that is particularly
serious in view of the diversified agricul-
ture of the region. The highly capitalised
enterprises. of the area which produce
sugar, cocoa, citrus, bananas, arrowroot,
cotton, coffee, ginger and tomatoes are re-
ceiving record prices for their produce but
are “thése prices spread over the small
producers? And are these producers as
efficient as they may be? Already too
much deteriorated land can be found in
the British Caribbean, and unless the
small holder can increase his production
to a level comparable to that of the high-
ly capitalised industries then there will
inevitably be less production and less
food.

The writer of this chapter includes a
quotation made’ by Mr. Page Principal of
the Imperial College of Agriculture at the
Fourth West India Conference in Curacao
in November 1950, The quotation was
from a statement made by the President
of the Agricultural Section of the British
Association for * the Advancement of
Science in 1948 : “If a peaceful world were
to set itself the task of applying the
knowledge we already have....it would
at a very conservative estimate be possi-
ble to double and even treble our produc-
tion of food in a relatively short time”.

In 1951 Barbados increased its output of
sugar by nearly 30,000 tons over 1949—50.
If the enthusiasm and enterprise displayed
by the sugar industry of Barbados could
be harnessed to the service of foods for
local consumption we could take full ad-
vantage of the peaceful conditions under
which we now live. We must produce
more to feed our people. Let us educate
ourselves to make the’best use of the land.
There is no surer way of raising our liv-
ing standards.

N the clear, hard sunshine of this sub-|
; tropical naval base, which ‘lruman
chooses as his iavourite holiday spot, 10,000
navy men are mastering the techniques of a
deadly trade—Anti-Submarine Wartare.

Yhe publicity, in all the talk of a future
war with Soviet Russia, almost always goes |
to the air force or atom bombs and guided
missiles.

Numbers of planes are anxiously com-
puted, Relative performances of Sabre jets
and Russian MIGs are watched with intens-
ity, as if there lies the ultimate key to vic-
tory.

But, with memories of the extremely close
call “last time,’ and with Intelligence re-
ports coming in on the high capabilities of
Russia’s 400-plus subs, America’s top mili-
tary planners regard the work that is going
on here at Key West as perhaps the most
important of all for the survival of the
Western Allies.

They do not encourage questions around
here and huge signs are displayed on doors
and steel fences—“Keep out—this definitely
means you” or “No unauthorised persons at
any time.”

But certain information is available and
“unclassified,” and it reveals glimpses of fan-
tastic advances in undersea warfare.

For example, in the Advance Underseas
Weapons School, the United States Navy is
well along on the development of torpedoes
launchable from submarines outside the lis-
tening range” of enemy ships, which can
| make their way at a designed depth into a
target area, the route of an enemy convoy,
say, or towards an enemy sub.

HEN they get there these “seeing-eye

torps” cruise slowly about for a short
time, as if endowed with brains of their own,
in a “selected pattern” until their target gets
into range.

Then they pick up speed overtake the tar-
get—even follow it through any dodging it
may try—and finally blast it.

And—the final Jules Verne touch about
these awesome robots—in certain conditions
these torpedoes can be made to choose the
type of ship out of a given convoy which
they are to attack.

Models capable of this sort of performance
are now in regular use.

New Type Of
Fishing Boats
Being Built

AN EXTENS-VE boat
building programme, the larg-
est ever to take place in the
island, is now being carried
out at the grounds of the
Fisheries Office. The type of
boat under construction is an
improved type of the local
fishing boat.-

The new Calvert designed fish-
ing boat, as it is cal-ed, will be 22
feet long, the average length o!
the local fishing boat, These new
boats will replace those which
were destroyed when high seas
pounded the west coast of the
island on December 2 and 3.

It is expected that about 40 new
boats will be built. Already cver
a dozen greenheart keels have ar-
rived from British Guiana, but
now the Fisheries Officer is await-
ing the arrival of Santa Maria
hardwood from British Honduras
for deadwood and transoms.

The boat has been so designed
that it can easily be converted into
a power boat while it is im-
possible to equip the present type
of fishing boat without extensive
renovations.

Ballast

It wil carry more than half of
its ballast on the keel. e pres-
ent fishing boats have no outside
ballast but their ballast (scrap
iron inside the boat) has to be
shifted from port to starboard
whenever the boat tacks.

The Calvert fishing boat will
carry 1,460 pounds of ballast on
its keel. This will prevent it
from overturning easily when
struck by a sudden gust of
wind, Only about 600 pounds of
ballast will be inside the boat.

The outside ballast will be
made of scrap iron and concrete
and will be bolted to the wood-
en keel. The new boat can
easily carry a two-man crew
since the inside bollast will be
very little.

Ribs of the new boats are made
of ahogany and white cedar,
the planking, masts and booms of
silverbali, The mainsail will be
similar to that on the present
type of fishing boat, but will car-
ry reef points.

To assist with this extensive
building programme, the House of
Assembly in January passed a
resolution for $70,000. The cost
of building the 40 new boats was
estimated at approximately $40,-
000 and that of repairing the 43
demaged boats at approximately
$10,000.

Assistance

After hearing of the severe
damage to the local fishing feet,
Jamaica and British Honduras
offered practical assistance to the
island,

Funds were provided by the
Government of Jamaica to send
to Barbados material to assist in
the replacements of the boats and
in consequence, the Governor of
Jamaica sent asa free gift, sail of
suit: ble weight.

The Governor of British Hon-
duras - offered@a gift of Santa
Maria hardwood which wil! pro-
vide deadwood and transoms for
the boats.

The build’mg programme is pro-
gressing rapidly. In the first
stage men were employed. sawing
up tree trunks into timber size.
Now other men are working on the
plonks and keels,

The sail makers have also gone
into action. It is expected that
by the end of next week the keels
of nearly a dozen boats would
have been laid at the grounds of
the Fisheries Office.

NO DECISION

(From Our Own ¢.orrespondent)
LONDON, April 8,

No decision was reached at
today’s meeting between Mr.
Allan Lennox-Boyd and the joint
deputation from the Caribbean
Labour Congress (London
branch) and the West Indian
Students Union who were bring-
ing charges of alleged suppres-
sion of civil liberties in West
Indian colonies,

The Minister of State flr the
Colonies told the deputation he
had another appointment which
would not permit him to spend
the time with them he had
promised, and it was therefore
agreed to have another meeting
at a date not yet fixed, A state-
ment from the West Indian depu-
tation may be seleased tomor-
row.

$99,000 For
Upkeep Of
St. Philip

The St. Philip Vestry yesterday
agreed to spend $99,000 on the

up-keep of the parish for the
parochial year 1952—53, and
fixed the rate on land at $5.40
per acre, and that on trade and
property at 27 cents in the dollar.

The rates laid for this year
represent an increase of 45 cents
on the acre as against the rate
for last year, and an increase of
2% cents on the rate for trade
and property.

Almost 2/3 of the estimated
Expenditure for the present year
will be devoted to Poor Relief on
which they estimate to spend
$61,777 as against $55,823 spent
during the last parochial year.

There will also be an increase
on the amount to be spent on
sanitation, the figure estimated
for this year being $10,660 as
against $9,399 spent last year.

These figures to a large extent
include increases on salaries
approved by the Vestry at its
last meeting. Another $1,720 is
put aside to be spent on repairs
to buildings, while the vote on
Education remained at $2,100.

The Vestry agreed on the
motion of Mr. D. D. Garner to
raise the rent charged on Cholera
Ground from $4.80 to $7.20.

They deferred consideration of
a motion by Mr. D. Brathwaite
that the Vestry consider the im-
mediate installation of electricity
at the Almshouse, pending a re-
port from Mr. H. L. Smith who
promised to investigate the pos-
sibility of obtaining a suitable
generating plant during his visit
to England.



Policemen Put
Out House Fire

Prompt action by Police Con-
stables Walter King, Forde, and
Standford brought under control
quickly a burning kitchen which
was attached to a double-roofed
house and shed at Friendship Gap,
Turning.

The house is the property of
Mrs. Irene Worrell who was one
of the occupants at the time of the
fire. Another occupant, Clarice
Walters, was cooking on the fire-
hearth when a strong wind blew
in the kitchen and the fire caught
the roof.

The three policemen, members
of the search party on the hunt for
an escaped prisoner, saw the fire
and rushed to the scene with the
van. They were assisted by Rev.
Vorreli’s son and many others
who brought a hose and buckets
of water.

Police Constable King was
wounded on his head while lifting
a part of the burning kitchen. He
worked until the fire was out and
then he went to the General Hos-
pital where he was treated. _

When the Fire Brigade arrived
on the scene, the fire had been
completely put out. The house was
not insured. '

SNAKE KILLED

Lawson Knight of Thomas Gap,
Westbury Road, killed a snake
about seven inches long on the
waterfront yesterday. The black
spotted snake was found among
some mangoes which were being
discharged by the M.V. Caribbe.
The Caribbee arrived here on
Monday evening from Dominica.

The snake did not cause any
alarm, however, as it was too small
to scare anyone around the Carib-
bee’s berth, Knight killed it with
a hammer.

J. M. Kidney Again

Chairman

Of St. M.

Sanitary Board

MR. J. M. KIDNEY was re-elected Chairman of ‘the

Sanitary Board of St. Michael when they met at the poned

Parochial Buildings yesterday afternoon.

Hon. V. C. Gale, who moved that Mr. Kidney be re- Duncans, St.

appointed, said that Mr. Kidney had served as Chairman
for many years and had done the job very satisfactorily.

He was sure that everyone
was with them for another

Insurauece On St.
Philip’s Parochial
Builditigs Doubled

The Vestry of St. Philip yes-
terday decided to insure all the
parochial buildings for full value
against fire and other risks alike,
at a total value of double the
amount for which it was former-
ly insured,

The decision was taken after
the Churchwarden, Mr. H. L,
Smith, had reported to the Ves-
try that he had discussed the
question of full value against
fire, and half value against other
risks as suggested at the last
meeting by Mr. R, B. Skeete,
and that the had discovered that
while this method would result
in a saving of $166 annually, the
saving did not justify the risks
involved.

He explained that under the
method suggested by Mr. Skeete,
they could only claim the amount
for which they were covered,
whether there was total destruc-
tion or not. When under the
full value insurance policy, they
could claim to the extent of the
damage done, even up to the full
value.

The Vestry postponed consid-
eration of an application by a
monthly parochial pensioner for
an increase oh monthly pensions
in keeping with the increase
voted recently by the Vestry for

weekly paupers.

Speaking on the matter, Mr.
H. L. Smith, the Churchwarden
said he was at a loss to know
what to do in the particular case,
because in putting up his mo-
tion to increase the weekly pen-
sions from 72 cents to $1.00, he
had borne in’ mind that there
would be some legitimate cases
for increases to monthly pensions,
but on the other hand he did not
think it reasonable to increase
the pensions of those who had

resigned only a year ago, and

on the basis of their last paid)

salaries, sess :
He suggested that a Committee

be set up to go into the matter,
but on a motion by Mr. D. D.
Garner, the Vestry decided to
potspone further consideration
until a further date.

The Vestry re-appointed Mr.
C. O. Tudor as their Auditor for
the year 1952-53, after agreeing
to an increase on the retainer
now paid to Mr. Tudor, The in-
crease was given on Mr. Tudor’s

application. a

‘CYRIL E. SMITH’ CALLS

The 56-ton schooner Cyril E.
Smith arrived here yesterday from
British Guiana with a cargo com-
prising 84 tons of firewood, 250
bags of charcoal and crates of
pumpkins. She is consigned to the

session.
Mr. Kidney thanked members

very much for reappointing him
and said that he would attribute
his success to the cooperation he
got from members.

The Sanitary Commissioners,
under the Head, Correspondence,
received a number of letters from
nearly the whole sanitary staff
asking ‘or increases in salaries.

Mr. Geddard moved that the
whole lot be rejected as they had
just allowed a cost of living
bonus.

Mr. Tuppin seconded Mry God-
dard’s motion, He felt that the
staff was adequately paid. Théy
got better salaries than some
City clerks,

Mr. Mottley did not agree with
turning down the whole lot as he
felt there may be some cases
deserving of consideration.

Hen, V.C. Gale felt that if they
were going to increase one or
two, they would have to increase
all.

Mr. C. B, Layne supported Mr,
Mottley and said; “When you get
applications coming from _ the
Chief Sanitary Inspector down,
there must be some dissatisfac-
Uion,”

Mr. Chase agreed with “Mr.
Gale that they could not increase
one or two without considering
giving a general increase. He
howéver ‘did not think the time
was ripe for increases since they

had recently allowed a cost of
living bonus.
Mr Mottley’s motion was de-

feated by a six—two majority and
Mr, Goddard’s motion: “That the
whole lot of applications be re-
jected,” carried,

At the meeting of the Sanitary
Commissioners yesterday, mem-
bers decided that the estimate for
the year 1952-53 will be $229,042

Members congratulated Mr. L
B. Sharpe, Clerk to the Com-
missioners, for the simplicity with
which he prepared the estimates
They were able to get through
with the estimates in a short time.

When dealing with the Head,
Building Inspector, it was sug-
gested that the Board inform
Government that Mr, S$ W.
Taylor, Building Inspector, wotild
ye of more service if attached to
the Housing Board, as his services

with the Commissioners were
very limited. With that Board
he could also be given an in-

crease in salary.

Local Government Bill Referred To Select Committee |

@ from page |

Andrew, these parishes had since
passed on thelr Highway func~
uons to the Centra: Governmen
and the system seemed io be
working Sauslacwruy.
He said that they
seeking a change of the Vestry
system ior. something modern
which would answer to the needs
of the social upliftment of which
everyone was now speaking about.
The presengthange in some quar-
ters was eonsidered revolutionary
because it broadens Wie existence
of the functions of the Vestries
He said that social welfare was
becoming burdensome for the olc
type of macfinery and it was

were now

time that there should be a
coange,

Tne VéStry system had been
criticised by" many local peopie
and he remembered the late Mr.

Laurie Yearwood, a member o:
the St. Michael Vestry saying that
the system at that time was con-
sidered outdated,

When the sioyne Commission
visited the island in 1938 to inves-
tigate the existing conditions
which had brought about the 1937
disturbances, they too felt that thr
system as existed then was out of
date and not suitable for present-
aay needs.

Unsuitable

They also had reports of C.M.O’s
aS to the unsuitability of the pres-
ent system and he was very
pleased that they were embarking
on the Bill that day to change the
whole set up which had proved
to be archaic and were replacing
it by something of a more modern
nature.

He said that honourable mem-
bers would remember that only
about three years ago, the House
amended the Vestry Act to give
the Vestries authority to lease, buy
cr rent land for the purpose of
developing playing fields and
community halls. They knew that
in those parishes where commu-
nity halls and playing fields ex-
isted, in most of them, the Vestry’s
enthusiasm was at a very low ebb.

Just a few weeks ago he said
that the parish of St. George had
made an application to’ the Gov
ernment for additional funds to

ly the City of Bridgetown, and
the Northern and Southern Dis-
tricts.

When the Bill was introduced
towards the end of the last session
ine Govermiment heeded to the
opinion of some people that there
was too big a jump to go from
11 to three districts and the last
bill set out that. there should be
six areas. They had since reverted
to three districts in accordance
with the recommendation made
by Sir John in his report because
it was felt that to have six local
government areas would be ex-
pensive.

As set out in the objects and
reasons of the bill, Part Il deals
with the franchise for local Gov-
ernment elections. It provides
that every British subject of full
age residing in the electoral area
or occupying premises in the
area having an annual value of
not less laan ifty dollars shal. be
entitled to Vote but no person shall
be allowed to vote in more than
one area, The Clerk of the City
Council or the Clerk of each dis-
trict Council wil] be the registra-
tion officer for his own area and
will prepare each year a spring
register and an autumn register
containing the names of the per-
6ons enllled to vote at local gov-
ernment elections.

Part Ill deals with the general
provisions as to members and
meetings of local authorities and
elections; it should be read in
conjunction with the Fourth
Schedule, which contains further
letails as to their proceedings. A
veneral code is provided, dealing
with the qualifications (Clause 29)
and disqualifications for office; the
latter include disqualifications on
the ground that the candidate has
a pecuniary interest in a contract
with the local authority (Clause
31). The Mayor, Aldermen and
Councillors of the City and the
Chairrran, Aldermen and Coun-
cillors of q District are required
to make a declaration of accep-
tance of office (Ci.32), They may
resign by giving notice in writing
to the clerk of the Council and
will cease to hold office if they
fail to attend any meeting of the
Council for six consecutive
months, (Cl. 33,84). Clauses 36—
38 contain provisions dealing with
casual vacancies, Meetings and
proceedings of Councils are to be
conducted in accordance with the
provisions of the Fourth Schedule
(cl. 39), and provision is made for
dealing with certain offences in
connection with elections such as
defacing nomination and ballot

pagers and personation (cl. 40—

Part IV states that Clause 45
makes it obligatory for every
local authority to appoint a fin-
ance committee and provides that
no liability exceeding $500.00 in
the case of the City Council, or
$250.00 in the case of a District
Council, shall be incurred by a
council, except upon a resolution
passed on an estimate submitted
»y the finance committee, Clause

by means of a committee, The

Part V of the Bill deals princi~
pally with the appointment of offi-'
cers. It provides in Clause 49 that |
every Council shall, with the sone |
sent of the Governor, appoint a
clerk of the Council and a treasur- |
‘r, and that no officer so appointed '
shall be dismissed except with the |
‘onsent of the Governor. Clause
59 provides that the Governor, may

tors on such terms as the Governor

the appointment of such other offi-
cers and staff as the Council think

pose of providing pensions and

Part VI of the Bill, dealing with
rating and valuation, states that
the City Council and District
Councils are constituted ating
authorities and authorised to levy
a general rate at a uniform amount
per dollar on the rateable value
of each hereditament in their area
and also special rates in specified
parts of their areas to provide for
abnormal or extraordinary expen-
diture for those parts of the areas.
Power is given to remit the pay-
ment of rates on the grounds of
poverty (cl. 57, 58). The rate
is to be borne and paid by the

owner_of the hereditament but the the

amount may be paid by the occu-
pier and deducted from any rent
payable by him to the owner
(cL 61), Clauses 63—66 deal with
the procedure for publishing a
rate, demand notes, discount, and
recovery of rates; a detailed pro-
cedure for recovery rates is set out
in the Fifth Schedule. The fol-
lowing hereditaments are exempt-
ed from rates; chattel houses, if
owneu-occupied and the annual
value does not exceed fifty dollars,
places of public religious worship,
and burial ground (cl. 67, 68).
The next group of Clauses (69—
84) deal with the valuation of
hereditaments for the purpose of
rating. Valuations lists are to be
prepared by valuation officers ap-
appointed by the Governor and
revised every five years (cl. 69,
70). The rateable value of a here-
ditament is the rent at which it
might reasonably be expected to
let from year to year if the tenant
undertook to bear the cost of the
repairs, insurance and other ex-
penses to maintain it in a state to
command that rent (cl, 72).
Clauses 73—81 deal in detail with
the procedure for preparing and
revising valuation lists, for lodg-
ing objections, and for appeals to
the Assistant Court of Appeal in
cases of disagreement. A valua-
tion officer is given power to re-
quire owners to make returns and
to enter hereditaments for the pur-
pose of poking a survey and valu-
ation (cl. 82, 83).

Part VII deals with trade tax.
Every Council is empowered to
levy a tax, to be known as a trade
tax, on the annual profits accruing
fvom trade carried on in their
area at sugh rates as may be pre-
scribed by the Council. The as-
sessable income of any person for
the purpose of this tax is to be
determined in the same manner as
the income of a person derived
from sag determined under the
Income Tax Act 1921, except that
no deductions are to be made in
respect of annuities, life insurance
premiums, and personal allow~-
ances (cl. 85 and 86). Persons
whose assessable income does not
exceed $1,000 are exempt from
trade tax (cl. 87), The tax is to
be assessed by the Commissioner
of Income Tax and the provisions
of the Income Tax Act 1921 relat-
ing to the making of returns, as-
sessments and appeals are applied
with the necessary modifications
and adaptions (cl. 88). The Com-
missioner of Income Tax is re-
quired to transmit the assessment
to the Council concerned as soon as
it is made and the clerk of the
Council is authorised to demand
the tax from the person charged

Part VIII deals with a general
code for the acquisition and dis-
posal of land Councils. It is

mittee, acquire a by agreement

Part IX states that as provided
in Clause 99, every Council shall
prepare and submit to the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee be-
fore the commencement of the fin-
ancial year an estimate of the in-
come and expenditure of the
Council for that year; the Gov-
ernor-in-Executive Committee
may approve the estimate with or
without m cations but the total
amount may not be increased. The
Governor-in-Executive Committee
may make contributions out of
moneys provided the Legisla-
ture towards ture incurred
by a Council for the of
discharging any of their ions
(cl. 101). All receipts of a Coun-
cil are to be carried to a Council
general rate fund and all liabili-
ties are to be discharged out of
that fund (cl. 102) (1) ). Clause
102 (2) provides for separate ac-
counts to be kept for certain pur-
poses.

Part X, dealing with borrowing,
states that the borrowing powers
of Councils can only be exercised
with the consent of the Govenor-
in-Executive Committee. The
general purposes for which money
may be borrowed are set out in
Clause 104. Power to borrow
money by way of temporary over-
draft from a bank is given by
Clause 105,

Part XI provides that the ac-
counts of every Council, commit-
tee and joint committee are to be
audited by the Auditor General
(cl, 107, 108). All accounts are
to be made up yearly to the end
of the financial year and within
fourteen days of the completion.
of the audit the Auditor General
is to report on the accounts to
the Council or committee or joint |
committee as the case may be (cl.

Mr. M. E. Cox (L) said that in
seconding the motion made that
the bill be read the second time,
while it was customary for one to
second a bill without saying any-

e said that he had on many
occasions been approached by
people, even from St. Philip, who
asked for the Maude Bill to be
dealt with as soon as possible.
It was hoped that the bill would
have been passed since last year
in order that it would have come
the last election, How-

he vestries have outlived |
their usefulness”, he said. “The |
majority of people of this limited |
franchise, who have been able to
sit on the vestry boards, have |
been able to lay rates on the people
and at the same time escape their
paying their rightful share. In the ,
parish of St. Michael, the assess- |
ors have been very afraid of as- |
sessing many of those people at
the true value because their boss-
es sat on those boards as vestry- |
men and might be able to harm |
them ”

As a result, he said, many of |
the “small people” who were not
qualified had to bear the brunt.
“Small properties have been
rated high and large properties |
have been rated low”.

missioner.

That should be so fixed, he said,
that if they were to have such
under that control, they should
have assessors attached to that
department as was the case in
British Guiana, Jamaica and Tri-

nidad.
Whai For ?

He said he did not find it set
out what the rates were to be
laid for. But then in such a volu-

minous Bill there would be over-
sights and difficulties. Indeed, if
they were not sending it to a
Select Committee they would have
to spénd many a night there de-
bating it.

He noticed, he said, that there
was going to be adult suffrage. He
would submit that because of the
set up in this country under thé
Companies Act, Limited Liabili-
ties and so on, it should also ex-
tend to all companies. Some mem-
bers because they might not un-

derstand it, might very we
Say that it was an attempt
to . protect big businesses.. But

if they did not protect big busi-
nesses, but destroy them, there
would be no _ taxation. They
should protect all sorts of peo-
ple, all sorts of businesses.

He observed, he said, that ar-
rangements were made in‘the Bill

for protecting all employees of
the various Boards and that with

one exception the Bill would pro-
vide to take over pensions and pay
gratuities to all those employed,
except those who came under the
Angiican Church Act, With mak-
ing a.defence for the Chutch, he
would say that it was hardly fair
for one to be employed with the
understanding that the position
taken is a pensionable one and
then were faced with such a
change that they would get no
pension. That should not be done
because of the power vested in
them to enact such legislation as
would take away the pensionable
right. This would affect organ-
ists, sextons and such like,

; Long Overdue

“IT am going to support the sec-
ond reading because I believe that
a Mayor and Corporation is long
overdue,” he said.

He believed that if they had
changes in these modern days and
they could satisfy him that such
changes were for the improve-
ment of local conditions, they
should give it a trial. But he would
counsel members not to be guided
by the idea of centralising things
into three rather than six. Any
Vestryman present, anyone who
had had to deal with local admin-
istration would see that even if
they made a saving in ohe way,

without the personal touch, the
man-of-the-district knowledge,
everything would not run as

smoothly.

He was not voting for it because
it was better than the present
system, he said, but merely be-
cause he felt that these were the
days when they should move on.
They could hope that they would
not have similar experience as
the citizens of Port-of-Spain were
having with their Mayor and Cor-
poration.

Mr, J. A. Haynes (E) said that
one of the chief points they had
to concern themselves with was
whether the proposed system was
better than the old system.

It was years now, he said, since
he started to advocate that there
should be a reform of the Vestry
system, of land taxation and
that they should not be in a
position in which the Vestry
found itself mixed up with the
Church. There were anomalies
in the old system — the Church-
warden, an executive of the par-
ish, and yet in many of the par-
ishes the Churchwardens were
not Anglicans or in same cases,
churchmen at all. He _ himself
was not a churchman and yet he
held the post of Churchwarden
for some years.

The anomalies belonged to the
days when the Vestry system was
the only type of organisation for
local Government. But as_ the

that they in this had done some-
thing worthy of note.

“But under the present Bill,”
he said, “I see some other anoma-
lies coming up which are very

disconcerting to a Vestryman
like myself with 30 years’ ex-
perience, That is why I ‘am

counselling members not to look
at this matter from a party view
but from a general point of view
because it is for general good.”

Town Planning

He would point out, he said,
that the Bill should go in con-
junction with the future Public
Health Bill. Those two Bills
were very associated. Another
Bill which was bound to come
was the Town and Country Plan-
ning. It was very difficult to
form. a structure of.a building or
of anything concrete or other~-
wise. without the whole thiag
being put together before. Tha
was where, he believed the Bult
would fall down, They would
pass it and find that such and
such would not work.

They were going to tear out 18
Acts out of the statute book with
the passing of the Bill — not that
he was in favour of them. They
had to remember that they did

not want _something of mere
ethereal heights, but something

practical.

He, like the Senior Member for
the City, he said, would support
the Second Reading, but he
hoped that the members of the
Select Committee and members
when it went into committee in
the House, would take a serious
view of all the sections.

He said the Vestry’s con-
sideration of spending money for
various items really correspond-
ed to Resolutions in the House,
Then with few limitations, they
were capable of spending and
there was no revising ohamber.
So one of the things he would
compliment was the proposed re-
vision by the Governor-in-Exe-
cutive Committee. J

There was a glaring point in
the draughtsmanship which to this
mind fell down, Therefore under
conditions sof changes, he was
supporting it, but if they did not
come t& earth in those various
matters, they would find that
the last state was worse than the
first.

Mr. V. B. Vaughn (I) who
spoke against the Bill and said
that the present Vestry system
reformed would be better than
the proposed change, told mem-
bers that he had first hand in-
formation of the working of Ves-
tries as he had once been a Ves-
try employee and another time
a Vestryman.

He said that they had to be
careful that in their attempts at
moving forward they did not re-
main in the same place or indeed,
go back. He was in complete
disagreement with the Vestry
system, he said. With the excep-
tion of the Mayor and Corpora-
tion for the city of Bridgetown,
the Vestry system in the remain-
ing areas only needed certain
reforms and not abolition, There
should be no substitution of two
districts for the remaining 10.

He said that the Report on the
system had been arrived at by a
misconception and Sones the
system with the English Local
Government.

Any defects in the present sys-
tem were due to the delay in
changing the qualifications for
membership. These changes in
qualifications Were overdue for
nearly 50 years. One particular
class in the community had been

dominating and the people for
whom it functioned were not re-
presented.

One of the greatest criticisms
made against the system, he said,
was that the island was too little
to have 11 Vestries. He, however,
would quote figures to show that
any observation of their being too
many Vestries would not altogeth-
er be a wise observation, To,every
4.000 inhabitants in the United
Kingdom, he said, there was one

saw that everything con- changed and the future genera-, ative as possible, there were 6,000
of Barbados would consider to each autonomous local author-

ity. In Barbados there were 18,000
as compared with 6,000.

As to the question of assessing,
it was always said that the areas
were too small to be economic,
but it was not established that
when they amalgamated the par-
ishes for the new system of local
Government, it would become
more economical. It all depended
on tHe service they intended sup-
plying.

Mrs. Bourne (L) said she was
surprised to hear it said that the
present Vestry system was not
antiquated, She, and others would
agree with her, felt it suited the
Elizabethan age.

She said that the present forms
of taxation were most unsatisfac-
tory, the failing to tax certain
things connected with large fac-
tories, and it was to eradicate all
the evils of the system that they
intended changing it.

Mr. J, Mottley (C) said that the
Bill was one of such magnitude
that members should consider it
very seriously.

Mr. L. A. Williams (L) observed
that the question was whether
they were going to change the
system or modify it. The operating
system was not perfect and the
whole purpose of the Bill was to
try and do something to remove
the imperfections.

He felt that instead of three cen-
tres, there should be four or five.
He was in agreement with the
Junior Member for St. Andrew
when she said that the Public
Health Act should at least come
into effect with the Bilt.

Concluding, Mr. Williams ob-
served that there was a dying
interest in local government

affairs, and he therefore felt that
if the Bill went through, quite a
number of young men would be
prepared to “ginger up” that dying
interest,

He said that even from the point
of view of the United Kingdom,
there had been the tendency for
people to take a greater interest
in the affairs of the Central Gov-
ernment than they took in the
affairs of local government.

He observed that within recent
years, records tended to show
that little interest was taken in
local government affairs, and this
was borne out by the fact that
there is no contest in many of the
Vestry elections. He felt therefore
that if the Local Government Bill
were passed, along with a new
Public Health Bill and a Town
Planning Bill, it would do much
to “ginger up” the interest now
being taken in the affairs of local
government.’

He said that in supporting the
Bill, he would counsel them that
it was largely a question of going
cautiously, trying as they went
along to see the weaknesses,
remedy them and try where pos-

sible to make it a practical suc-
cess.



Anti-Red Campaign
Launched In
East Germany

BERLIN, April, 7.

An Anti ~ Communist under-
ground group to-day urged East
Germans to offer passive resis-
tance to the main exploitation of
workers in East Germany and
picked a snail as a symbol in their
campaign. The organisation which
operates within East Germany's
Red Trade Union appealed from
West Berlin to the eastern work-
ers and employees to paint snails
secretly on factory and office
walls, fences and bridges, “The

Speed of the snail symbolizes the |

pace of “the progress” in East
Germany and provides an exam-
ple of how to oppose any further
increase of production quotas”, it
explained.

Three Stab Wounds

Mr. Colin Vaughan told the

Glenville Hart held the accused
and both men fell to the ground.
She then got a car to take Keelyn
to the Hespital. She did not see
what the accused stabbed Keelyn
with

The accused held her sister with
his left hand and stabbed her with
the right

Glenville Hart of Belair, St.
Philip said that on December 17
about 1 p.m. he was in St. Philip
at Qutram’s house. While there
he saw the accused, While Keelyn
Barton was walking in the road,
the accused took something from
his pocket and “made a catch at
Keelyn and made-a stab at her

back.”
The accused ran after Keelyn
and while running he (the ac-

cused) dropped a knife. The ac-
cused after pointed a revolver at
him while he (Hart) was stand-
ing at Outram’s house. He knocked
the revolver out of the hand of
the accused and an Island Con-
stable arrested the accused,

A man named Gibson took up
the revolver and the knife. The
accused also took up a cane bill
and made attempts to cut him with
at.

James Gibson of Stroud Land,
St. Philip said he was at Miss
Outram’s house on December 17
when he saw the accused,

Stabbed

While he was talking to Miss
Outwam he heard the accused say
something to his wife. About ten
minutes after Keelyn Barton
passed by Miss Outram’s home.
Just as Keelyn Barton was going
up the road the accused rushed
to her with a knife and stabbed her
in the back,

The accused dropped the knife
while running. The accused also
took out a revolver out of his
pocket and pointed it ‘> Hart.
Hart rushed at the accused and
the revolver dropped from the
hand of the accused,

He took up the revolver and the
accused was held, Later a police-~

Water Polo Season

Will Start May 12

SWIMMING SPORTS SOON

WHEN the Barbados Amateur Water Polo and Swim-
ming Association held their Annual Council Meeting at
the Barbados Aquatic Club on Monday it was decided that

the 1952 season would begin

=



Bannister

Needs Serious
Tests

f Says PETER WILSON

To run or not to run?—that is
the question. Roger Bannister,
so far Britain’s best post-war
miler, who is inevitably _com-
pared with the late great Jack
Lovelock—they both ran for Ox-
ford, and then both became
medical students—seems to have

the ' Same, ideas, as, the 1936
Olympic 1,500 metres champion.
Lovelock used to train for a

peak performance on one speci-
fie day.
In, say, May, June or July he

would not mind who beat him,
But—-to take a hypothetical case
—if he'd made up his mind to
win.a race, whether it was in
Tooting or Timbuctoo, in the first
pees in August, you would have
to. be a world-beater to lick him
that afternoon.

I had lunch with Bannister
before the Oxford and’ Cam-
bridge athletic meeting — in
which, after announcing the
event, he was the first to con-
gratulate the slow-pulsed Chris
Chataway who had just broken
his. inter-Varsity record — and
Jolly Roger told me that he did
not mean to do much competi-
tive running before the event of
the year—the 1,500 metres at
Helsinki.

This probably explains why he
will not be running in the indoor
athletic meeting at Harringay
tomorrow and Saturday,
although Bill Nankeville—whom
Bannister beat for the A.A.A.
mile title last year—will be com-
peting, together with European
800 metres champion, John Par-
lett, and the Northerner Len
Eyre.

Two Kinds
It certainly explains why he
will not be flying to California
with McDonald Bailey to com-
pete in the Coliseum relay meet~-
ing at Los Angeles on May 16.

Instead, the red-roofed Chata-
way will be taking his place
there.

There are, of course, two kinds
of milers. One excels in running
against the clock, with assistance
from the other competitors.

I always felt that Sydney
Wooderson was of this type. His
then world-record-breaking mile
of 4 mins, 6.4 secs. was put up in
a specially framed handicap race

ut the only disappointing
race I ever saw Sydney run was
in the Princeton “Mile of the
Century” (America had a “Mile
of the Century” every year be-
fore the war), when he was the
only Englishman in an_ inter-
national field.

first person who sends the cor-
rect answers to the three fol-
lowing questions.

1. If a player kicks a foot-

enters the goal, should the
referee award a goal or
not?

How many runs did the

first wicket partnership

between George Challenor
ana Tim Tarilton yield in
the first innings against

Trinidad in the 1927 Tri-

angular toarngmens at

Kensington?

If a player is ruled “off-

side’ in water-polo, does

SPORTS QUIZ

rm

on Monday, May 12th.

Various committees were ap-
pointed to look after the running
of the association.: The 8 ing
Committee was asked to take im-
mediate steps to arrange a train-
ing programme for the forthcom- '
ing visit of a Barbados Swimming
Team to Venezuela in August or 3.
September, and it was ‘hoped that
this committee would be able to
organise without delay a swim-
ming competition for the associa-
tion; The Gear Committee was
asked to make the water polo gear
available for practice as soon as
possible,

Referees for the various leagues
were appointed and emphasis was
Jaid on the registr ation of “A”
players in the men’s senior league,
A Committee comprising Boo
Patterson, Jack Knight and Ken
Ince were appointed to examine
all registration cf “‘A” players in
this league before the season
began.

It was also unanimously agreed

that the association continue
its affiliation to the Federa-
tion Internationale de Nata-
tion Amateur (the Interna=
tional Organisation governing
water polo). The meeting ended

after the Hbn. Secretary was in-
structed to write the Ty inidad
Water Polo Association to confirm
that October would be suitable
for that Association to send a
Water Polo team to Barbados.

E. PROCTOR





Lovelock, on the other hand,
preferred the cut and thrust of a
competitive, mile, and I always
got the feeling that to him and
Bannister beating the opposition
is more important than the time
taken to do so.

However, there are little more
than a hundred days to the open-
ing of the Olympics, and al-
though I know he is practising
vigorously I can't helny feeling
that Bannister, needs some fairly
serious miling, irrespective of the
results, to iron out any kinks
which may have developed in his
style during the winter, and to
sharpen him up mentally.

PACK l-Ol'R liUtHXIMIN ADVOCATE WEDNESDAY. APM. • ' BARBADOS^ AWOGUl" e. I •---= — t 1 Wednesday. April 9, IH2 I 111 I AMI IN Ihe chapter dealing with agriculture In the report of the Comptroller lor Development and Welfare 1951 the agricullitral Adviser stressed (Wat further increases in food production must come mainly from small producers. The population of the West Indies is expanding rapidly and it must be fed. Steps must be taken to improve peasant agriculture to the extent which is essential if the "present standard of living is to be bettered or even maintained". The author of this chapter suggests that agricultural policies of the British Caribbean may now need revision. And he offers four main factors for consideration. No one will disagree with his main contention that the area must maintain a high level of production of remunerative export crop! to pay for essential imports. Nor would anyone dispute the need foe a great increase in the local production of food particularly with a view to the partial replacement of imported foods such as meal. The other two factors follow from the first two. To achieve them there must be better use made of the land including land at present unproductive or insufficiently unproductive and peasant production must improve. None of these factors are repugnant to reason and they hove been consistently advocated in these columns. Unfortunately diagnosis will not solve our troubles. Our task is to educate the people to understand the ills from which they suffer and to apply the remedies which can only be applied if they co-operate. The Comptroller's report 1951 confirms this statement of fact. "Unless the people of these territories" writes the agricultural adviser "are made aware of these problems they cannot be expected to support the measures which will be needed if the problems are to be solved." Education is necessary. And the education adviser to the Comptroller is ready with the only remedy that can promote this education. "The basic problems of the rural population" he wrtes "stem from a generally deficient agricultural production. This results in a low standard of living. It is necessary therefore to develop a Hchool curriculum centred round the teaching of improved agricultural practice*, home improvement, techniques and the Inculcation of healthy living habits." These statements are so self-evident, so obvious, so basic, so elementary that it is a great relief to find the experts making them. We have been warned so often by so many that there was no short cut to prosperity and now we are faced with the inescapable mathematical fact that more mouths require more food to feed them and more food can only Result from incraasad production or increased imports. Already we are subsidising imported foods to an extent which alarms the government. We must therefore revise our whole attitude about the land and our aim must be "not only to maintain fertility but to increase it". While revenue has increased from agricultural produce in the area, says the agricultural adviser, agricultural production in the area as u whole hos not increased appreciably. And that is particularly serious in view of the diversilied agriculture of the region. The highly capitalised enterprises of the area which produce sugar, cocoa, citrus, bananas, arrowroot, cotton, coffee, ginger and tomatoes are receiving record prices for their produce but are "these prices spread over the small producers? And are these producers as eflicient as they may be? Already too much deteriorated land can be found in the British Caribbean, and unless the small holder can increase his production to a level Lnm|>arable to that of the highly capitalised industries then there will inevitably be less production and less food. The writer of this chapter includes a quotation made by Mr. Page Principal of tin Imperial College of Agriculture at the Fourth Wot India Conference in Curacao in November 1950. The quotation was from | statement made by the President of the Agricultural Section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1948 ; "If a peaceful world were to set itself the task of applying the knowledge we already have it would at a very conservative estimate be possible to double and even treble our production of food in a relatively short time". In 1951 Barbados increased its output of sugar by neatly ..0,000 tons over 1949—50. If the enthusiasm and enterprise displayed by the sugar industry of Barbados could be harnessed to the service of foods for local consumption w could take full advantage "t the peaceful conditions under whuh we now live, We must product, mote to ftad our people U' % %  %  %  "i the land.

HOPEFVLX ( 10,000 Men In A Water-world Of Fantasy... By K. M. MactOLL KET WaKbT. | I N the clear, hard sunsiune oi tnis sub, tropical naval base, wmch lrun.Mii [ciyoece aa his lavounie noiiuay spxit, iu,uuu navy men are mastering me tecnniques ui a 'deaaiy trade— .Anti-bubmarine \Variare. Igsfl publicity, in all the U1K ot a luture war with Soviet Russia, almost always goes j to the air lorce or atom bombs and guided missiles. Numbers of planes are anxiously computed. Relative performances of Sabre jets and Russian MIGs are watched with intensity, as if there lies the ultimate key to victory. But, with memories of the extremely close call "last time," and with Intelligence reports coming in on the high capabilities of Russia's 400-plus subs. America's top military planners regard the work that is going on here at Key Went as perhaps the most important of all for the survival of the Western Allies. They do not encourage questions around here and huge signs are displayed on doors and steel fences—"Keep out—this definitely means you" or "No unauthorised persons at any time." But certain information is available and "unclassified," and it reveals glimpses of fantastic advances in undersea warfare. For example, in the Advance Underseas Weapons School, the United States Navy is well along on the development of torpedoes launchable from submarines outside the listening range" of enemy ships, which can make their way at a designed depth into a target area, the route of an enemy convoy, say, or towards an enemy sub. TORPEDOES WITH BRAINS' VX^HEN they get there these "seeing-eye torps" cruise slowly about for a short time, as if endowed with brains of their own, i.i a "selected pattern" until their target gets into range. Then they pick up speed overtake the target—even follow it through any dodging it may try—and finally blast it. And—the final Jules Verne touch about these awesome robots—in certain conditions these torpedoes can be made to choose the type of ship out of a given convoy which they are to attack. Models capable of this sort of performance are now in regular use. MONEY— QUARTER OF BUDGET ^T^O give you a fairly sdlid idea of the extreme seriousness with which America's admirals regard the work of A.S.W.— just three years hack only six per cent, of all American naval research and experimental funds went to this branch. To-day a whopping 25 per cent, of the big naval research budget is devoted to A.S.W, Some of America's best brains are at work here. They are soberly alert, impressive men, with nothing of the "Pearl Harbour complacency" about them. HIT FIRST New Technique QNE of the grim possibilities which America faces is that in a war with Russia enemy subs would sling guided missiles, perhaps with atomic warheads, into the great coastal towns from distances of a hundred miles or more out to sea. A.S.W. .techniques are aimed at finding and sinking these U boats before they can go into action rather than hunting them down and polishing them off in retaliation after the damage has been done. So in the brilliantly blue waters off this remote Florida coast the American Navy men are constantly experimenting with sea-air "hunterkiller" exercises. Planes and "blimps," equipped with all the latest seeing and listening devices, as well as fast destroyers, make up these killer teams. THE 'IFIs Still An if Vla/HO has the "edge" in this particular form of potential war ? It is the opinion of most American Intelligence men that while A.S.W. has come a very long way in the past few years the submarine still retains not only the initiative but also the general tactical advantage. A modern sub can move almost as fast submerged as a frigate can on the surface. and it can dive to depths beyond 300ft. where it cannot be heard by sound locators. These and other problems are some of the things which the grave men at Key West are trying all the time to "crack" About as far as these laconic men will commit themselves is : "If we can spot the subs we can kill them—but an 'if Is still an 'if'." NO TALK ABOUT THIS ONE 'TMfE generally accepted American naval doctrine about subs is that in hit-andrun attacks in the open sea the enemy has at least three chances in live of getting away with it. One potent weapon in the A.S.W. set-up which nobody will say anything at all about is the submarine which has been developed to seek out and "kill" other tuba, —L.E.S.

UlliM NDYY. APRIL J, 12 BAHIlllHiM.MII Ml New Type Of Fishing Boats Being Built I boat building programme, the largest ever to lake place in the island, is now being carried out at the grounds of the I The type of boat under construction is an improved .type of the local fltttlflg boat. The new divert designed fishing boat, as it h caled. will be 22 fMt long, the average length o. the local Ashing boat. These ne* boats will replace those which were destroyed when high seas pounded the west coast of the island on December 2 and 3. It is expected that about 40 new boats will be built. Already ever a dozen greenheart keels have arrived from British Guiana, but now the Fisheries Officer U awaiting the arrival of Santa Maria h; rdwood from British Honduras IT de.dwood and transoms. The boat has been so designed that It can easily be converted into a power boat while it Is Impossible to equip the present type of fishing boat without extensive renovations. Ballast It wi 1 carry more than half of it"! ballast on the keel. The present fishing boats have no outside ballast but their ballast (scrap iron inside the boat) has to be shifted from port to starboard whenever the boat tacks. The Calvert Hailing boat will rarry 1.460 pounds of ballast on Its keel. Thai will prevent It from overturning easily when •truck by x sudden gust ,,f Mind. Only about AM pounds of ballast will be Inside the Deal. The outalde ballast will be msde of scrap Iron and concrete and will br bolted to the wooden keel. The new boat can easily carry a two-man crew since the inside b Hast will be very lilt'.-. Ribs of the new boats are made of mahogany and white cedar, the planking, masts and booms of %  UverbalL The mainsail will be similar to that on the present type of Ashing boat, but will carry reef points. To assist with this extensive building programme, the HOUM of Assembly in January passed a lesolution for $70,000. The cost Of building the 40 new boats was estimated at approximately $40.000 and that of repairing'the 43 di maged boats at approximately $10,000. Assistance After hearing of the severe damage to the local fishing fleet. Jamaica and British Honduras nnVrrd practical assistance to the island. Funds were provifled by the (Jovemment of Jamaica to cnd to Barbados material to assirt in the replacements of the boats and in consequence, the Governor of Jamaica sent as a free gift, sail of suit ble weight. The Governor of British llonchiras ottered n gift of Santa Mai .i hardwood which Will provide dcadwood ond transoms for the boats. The buildVig programme is progressing rapidly. In the first stage men were employed sawing up tree trunks into timber size. Now other men nrc working on the pl-i"k* and keels. The sail makers have also gone Into action.
