THE G U AUDI A X Friday November 4 1960 "If fgfffF gf SITTING ON A COLUMN Lawrence Unbound by Wayland Young f ljMLf.l Mi -ffii- All parties wooing youth at Bolton Campaign with many question marks From our Bolton, Thursday. On arithmetic the candidature of Mr Frank Byers for the Liberals should enable Labour just to capture Bolton East. On the ground," most people do not believe it. Their reason is obvious enough. As a Labour optimist here said : " We've had a troubled year." Yet the party survived the ructions of 1954-55 relatively little harmed (though enough to lose Bolton East). Can it do so aain V There have been some indications since the election that 'the non-Socialist parties may have achieved a decisive break-through. Among young people they had probably done so already. The pensioners, who swung to Labour last year, may have been mollified by the announced increases. Are the trade unionists solid (as solid, that is. as they ever were) ? What about the young and the old '' Above all. where docs the Liberal vote come from ? How (!o these factors apply to Bolton East '.' Any categorical answer would be rash. and. for the pensioners, absurd. One can attempt some indications for the others. Contracting out The Tories have a council of Conservative trade unionists who distribute Tory literature and views. Their active members are said to number 200 in Bolton, and to be growing slightly. The party also claims to be well pleased with the results of its contracting out campaign. The general unions and the AEU, who cover a high proportion of Bolton's non-textile workers, report no sign yet of increased contracting out. But a local union official in a cotton mill said that a number of older members had asked to contract out being " fed up with things generally." He did not think the split in the Labour Party had affected the younger ones they Tory gain from Labour at second poll : majority doubled By our Liverpool Liverpool's unprecedented and most costly municipal ward election, held twice in six months after High Court intervention, resulted yesterday in another win for the Conservatives, who gained the seat from Labour. Their majority of 1,124 was more than double the figure of the May elections and there was almost a 40 per cent poll. The figures were : . G. F. T. Smith (C), 3,323 ; A. G. Roberts (Lab, retiring), 2,199. Jlr Smith said he was doubly satisfied with the confidence shown in the Conservative Party and himself. Mr Roberts said he too was now satisfied and the increased poll had shown that some people had abstained from voting in the earlier election because of the confusion. On some of the ballot papers in the May election, Mr Roberts's name was "in South America they call it Very down-to-earth chaps, those South Americans, the Chairman said . . . that's why they were so ama7ed I didn't know? about the Tickopres. seeing 1 was from England. They assured me that to them it was a far more important invention than any Sputnik. What docs it do? Why, nothing less YOUR PEOPLE SHOULD BECAUSE Tickopres' is unequalled in simplicity, iconomy and versatility. BECAUSE Tickopres is made bv ihe experts in tickets, labels and tags. own Reporter were not interested in politics anyway. Conversation with a' number of them confirms this view. Active trade unionists do not regard the older ones as much better : a young bus worker, a strong supporter of the Labour Parly, was scathing about his failure to interest his colleagues but the same man, while admitting that the split, had not been unnoticed, did not think it would make anybody change his vote. His view is shared by other activists. Major step Contracting out is, of course, a major i step. Some may change their views , without being prepared to go so far. j Among ordinary Labour voters I did j not personally meet any who had changed because of the party's division, but whether they would take the trouble to go on voting was not in every case certain. One subject seemed genuinely lo rouse political feeling. Public authority employees have been angered by the new pensions scheme. Apparently they will lose from the local authority scheme at least what they gain from the national one. All parties have' active youth movements, and class distinctions between them are not apparently strongly marked. Young Socialists claim an average attendance at their meetings of 25 : the young Liberals as many : the young Conservatives rather more. The young Socialists have clearly not gone cut of their way to win the unpolitical. Labour has the only young candidate, the Liberals the only one with parliamentary experience. For one who aspires to Westminster the Conserva tive, Alderman Edwin Taylor, is not over-interested in national affairs. But , his innumerable local connections j should be worth something. The Liberals are plugging .Mr Ryers as just the opposite, a national figure. Correspondent confused with another Labour candidate with the same surname contesting a different ward. Mr Roberts appealed to the High Court and an election court declared the result void. Labour's majority among the councillors has now been whittled to one, although in the council as a whole it has an overall majority of 27. No news of ship for three days A Lloyd's message last night stated that no news had been received from the British motor vessel Lesrix (590 tons since October 31 when the vessel was 15 miles west of Sr Catherine's Point. She left Goole on October 29 for Hayle. Shipping has been asked for news of her. the English Sputnik" than to overprint tickets, labels and tags, two tickets or two thousand at a tirtie and all with a professional finish too!

( l.,tb) and BUSINESS ON A DERELICT SITE Caravan plea By our Sale Correspondent A former Merchant Navy officer went to a Ministry of Housing inquiry at Sale yesterday to fight for the right to set up a caravan sales business on a piece of derelict land. Opposing Mr Peter Ceorge Kendall. of Harboro Grove, Sale, who was ills- allied during the war. were the Ministry of Transport and Sale Borough Council. In support of his appeal against the councils refusal to allow him the site in Washway Road, Sale, Mr Kendall submitted the results of a questionnaire he sent to 100 nearby residents and shopkeepers. lie asked them whether they thought his business would spoil what was described as an " attractive street scene." Of 52 people who replied, 43 were in favour of his business and only nine against. Mr Kendall said he would provide a car park for his customers to prevent them from parking on the main road. Impeding traffic A Ministij engineer. Mr P. I'. Carter, claimed nai i iie inisiness wouiu attract . an excessive number of parked cars which would interfere with safety and impede traffic on the trunk road through Sale. The Ministry also wanted part of the land for road widening, but not for at least ten years. Mr Carter said the trunk road through Sale and Altrincham coped with 15.4KH vehicles and 2.715 cycles during IB hours a day in 1954, and since then traffic volume had increased by 50 per cent. "The road is approaching Ihe limit of its capacity, because traffic on it is increasing by 5 per cent cery year (he continued). We hope to have Ihe Princess Parkway extension huill in five or six years, but I don't think this or a bypass west of Altrincham and Sale will relievo the amount of commoting traffic on the road. We hope the Princess Parkway extension wilt diminish traffic on the Sale trunk road, hut the phenomenal rate of 1 raffle growth each year will bring us back to where we arc now " The Ministry of Housing's decision will be made known later. MP in hospital after heart attack Mr H. Hynd, Labour M.P. for Accrington, has been admitted to I Manor House Hospital. London, after a heart attack on Sunday evening. Mr Hynd, who is 60, collapsed m an Accrington street after addressing local party delegates on his recent trip to Tokio. News of his illness was given by his agent, Mr Peter Whittaker, who said yesterday that Mr Hynd was expected to be in hospital for at least another week. Although doctors urged him to enter the local hospital, T'.r Hynd went at his own request by train to London, where he was met by an ambulance. Yesterday he was stated to be quite comfortable. 2,000 FIRE CAUSED BY THIEVES ? Thieves who broke into a sweet and chocolate factory in Leeds early yesterday are thought to have started a fire which caused losses estimated at 2,000. After breaking a window and climb ing into the factory of J. E. Barlow and Son, Ltd., in Whitehall Road, the thieves are helieved to have lit pieces of paper to find their way to the office safe, which they failed to open. Police think that the lighted paper started a fire in the factory's storeroom which the thieves could not put out ; they left with just a few pounds which had been collected for an office girl's twenty-first birthday present. Anguish under the arc-lamps (Continued from page 1) Minister's Polaris statement, which Mr Watkinson had the fob of trying to clear up today, help to put back benchers in any happier frame of mind. There is no sign that Mr Macmillan intends to give a personal explanation. This angered Mr Marcus Lipton, who considered it inadequate of him to " put up a stooge in another place. Translated out of parliamentary into common language this meant " entrust his explanation to the Foreign Secretary in the House of Lords." Even the indulgent Speaker drew the line here, and demanded a withdrawal. Mr Lipton obeyed like the devoted parliamentarian he is. He took back " stooge " and substituted " spokesman." Chance of accident at base " remote " i When representatives of three county councils arrived for a conference with naval stair officers at Greenock yesterday to disruss the US Polaris base to be sited at Holv Loch, they were met by pickets. The pickets, members of Greenock Trades Council, carried placards one of which read : " Greenock wants work, not grave-digging." After the conference at naval head quarters reporters were told that an emergency committee was to be formed as a wise precaution " against the very unlikely event of accident." Mr T. D. Haddow, secretary of the Scottish Department of Health, who presided, said : " While we cannot give a 100 per cent guarantee that nothing will ever happen, the chances are extremely remote." ti left : Mr Frank I'.

H was stated that 250 "residents had protested to the Minister of Housing, who ordered the inquiry. Mr C. N. Olidewell, who appeared for zl people living at the rear of open ; land in Oaklands Hoad. Lower Kersal, i on which Salford Corporation proposes to build four blocks of maisonettes, said that the scheme reflected an attitude of mind which could turn this country in a short space of time into a far bigger shambles than even the industrial revolution. Mr It. I Ik'errofl. for the corptiralion. said that like other inlensely developed areas Salford suffered from land starvation and lo a renter degree than most. Kvery inch of ground was precious and Ihis particular site was coins out for development. The only ground of objection was thai il was intended to build fonr-slorey blocks instead of ordinao houses, hul the corporation had development would interfere as liule as n()ss; hi,. ,,iih exislui" amenities The blocks would lie as far as possible from the eisting houses and sited at an jnjde so that they would not intrude. It was agreed lhat m one or two cases an open siew over the site would be spoiled. No date yet for Leeds-Sheffield extension of Ml Mr Marples, the Minister of Transport, in a letter lo Mr Donald Wade, the Liberal member for lluddersfield West, on the question of extending the Ml to Sheffield and Leeds, says that the funds available for long-distance routes in the next five or six years must primarily be devoted to completing the five major projects. The letter adds : "On present indications it looks as if it will also be possible, within the resources mailable, to include the start of the Crick-Doncaster section of the e I motorway in the programme at som lime during this period. I cannot guarantee to make a start on the Sheffield lo Leeds section as well. " Preparation of the Sheffield-Leeds extension is being pressed forward. 1 hope lo publish the draft scheme earl noU J?n Cell I V me e lo make Ihe side road orders and acquire Ihe land by statutory processes and complete the detailed engineering design. It remains lo be seen how fast we can get on. "At this stage it Is far too early to say when the scheme can be ready or when it can be accommodated in the programme. In the meantime you probably know lhat I hine been taking various measures to improve the existing links between Leeds. Bradford, Sheffield, and the Great North Koad." " ALARMING INCREASE" IN SALARIES Lancashire county council at Preston yesterday agreed to the latest salary award which will give its chief officers a rise of 12J per cent, representing up to 600 a year each, but passed a resolution recommending that the machinery responsible for the awards be examined with a view to the setting up of a new body " more representative of the interests of local government." Alderman Ellis Wood, chairman of the establishment committee, said members were "very disturbed" at the amount of the award, which followed closely one of up to 18 per cent two years ago. He added : "1 am wondering if the ratepayers can afford these alarming increases." MR C. CREENHOW Mr Christopher Creenhow. who has died I at Hullermere, aged Ii2, was chairman or the Lake District Hotels and Caterers Association, a founder member of Cockcrmoulh mountain rescue team, an officer of the Royal Observer Corps, and a friend of flockmasters and shep herds of five dales who held tneir cheeking round-up at his hotel.

Haworth Hilditch, savs in his annual report that cancer of the lung and bronchus caused 40 deaths in the town in 1959. against 26 in 1958. lie describes as pedantic the argument as to whether tobacco smoking or aerial pollution from household and industrial sources, or even diesel fumes, are to blame, and comments : "Surely we should all feel better if the air of this town was as clean as that of Ihe resort lo which we reoair ni uront cost for a week or a fortnight each year; ana il we cou k see more of Ihe sun on unii iij-,li-,iu in waiivnij; ill giuuill under a smoke pall." there was no need for legislation or coercion just a public desire to make the air of Wigan clean and fit to breathe.

But one must assume the prosecution was serious, and the verdict is most certainly serious. Something died at the Old Hailey on Wednesday, some bad old strand in our culture, and the manner of its oing was sometimes funny, sometimes un'.y. The .ludue's repealed little pinj; " Holv wedlock, madam, holy wedlock " awoke no echo in the jury. Treasury counsel, on the other hand, spoutinj; the better documented stereotypes from the Authoritarian Personality while all that he stood for was sinking into the waters of oblivion, was a more imposing phenomenon. " There arc, are there not . . . ' when lawyers say " are there not ? " and " do you not ? " and " I know not " thev are disdaining contemporary life "There are, are there not, certain standards. ..." "After all, restraint in sexual matters. . . .'' Here prosecution counsel reached, inevitably, for his copy of Criminal Statistics, which was ruled out by the Judge. The idea that a decrease in sexual restraint will give rise to an increase in criminal activity can omy he entertained by one particular temperament, that which believes that all or most sexual appetite tends towards criminal actions. This is the very tvpe of temperament which wnl be unable to bear " Lady Chatterley's Lover." and will seek to ban it, since that, book speaks joy, kindness, and trust. , . One should not, perhaps, have doubted the issues. Here was a barrister asking human beings alive now, not the patriarchs of ancient Israel, whether this was a book thev would like " their wives and servants" to read, always referring to lovemaking as " bouts,' speaking ot " my lady's boudoir, reeling off rhetorical questions to which the whole courtroom seethed inaudiblv with the answer he did not want, using a contrived Philistinism, and finally, reserving this for his concluding speech so that the defence could sav nothing about it, trying to panic the jurv with an innuendo uf buggery in the book. And strangest effect of all, unaware that he himself was obliterated by the fire of Lawrence's writing. At one time or another he must have read aloud almost all the, as he called them, "bouts" in the novel. At first it was hard to keep still and silent so painful was that flat, grinding voice coming between us and the words. But then the voice seemed to vanish ; it did not matter who was reading and I for one was brought, in spite of it, to realise that those tremendous pages of level and open eloquence had for years been living unremembered in my head as surely as the Authorised Version or Shakespeare themselves. Lawrence reared up from his grave, sheltered goodness, truth and beauty, and annihilated prosecutors, judges, CJOMETIMKS THE WEATHER Forecast chart for middav Rlats (Maucnesierl 7 13 .

The whole prosecution case was a study in morbid psychology. The blind vanity of those readings was not the intellectual drama of the courtroom : it was real-life tragedy, and awoke pity and horror. The point is worth making, because a cause will find the champion it deserves. The defence, conducted by Gerald Gardiner at his sanest and most agreeable, gave an admirable picture of how ordinary people do feel and think. A procession of clergymen held that since human and divine love are not in conflict, the book had a religious significance ; a procession of writers and others said that this or that particular word cannot be evil ; schoolteachers said children know them anyhow ; a very young woman said, in effect that she had jiot been corrupted ; and so on. The hero among the witnesses was Richard Hoggart. I think he made history. In his own evidence, using the word in its correct and proper sense, he said the point Lawrence made was : " Simply, this is what one does : One fucks." If ever the English language comes to be at peace with itself again, thereby giving people freedom to be at peace with themselves, the credit will be Lawrence's first, but' Hoggart's soon . after. He also gave a model account of the history and meaning of Puritanism, dealing most intelligently and profoundly with our moral and literary heritage ; the prosecution asked if he was serious, and the Judge looked amazed. The jury on the other hand, heard him. Tint then again, it was a famous victory. The " Daily Herald " which, along with the " Guardian," was the most forthright of the dailies in ' welcoming the verdict, had quoted ' the evidence of " Mr Edward Forster, a novelist." " Call Mr Forster," the policeman's voice had echoed down the corridors ; " Call Mr Forster." Nearly forty years ago, Mr Forster and all Bloomsbury had waited for the same call in the " Well of Loneliness " case, and it had not come. But now, there was Roy Jenkins sitting in the court to see the effects of his new statute, which made it possible for evidence of literary merit to be called. " Are you Edward Morgan Forster ? " the defence asked. " I am." Not one of the twelve jurors turned his head. But they acquitted the book ; and this little scene can tell us a lot about the place of the writer in society. It was E. M. Forster and people like him who made those jurors and the " Daily Herald " what they are. and they don't know it. This is how it should ba.; the right fruit of literature is not glory but effect. So that now at last, thirty years late, that jury, ignorant of what formed it, has allowed D. H. Lawrence to become fully effective. Time will show, but I think it possible future generations may say that on November 2, 1960, ,a giant who had lain in chains, the English imagination, was at last unshackled.
