The six Royal Air Force Vampires which this week made the first jet crossing of the Atlantic have now arrived at Trenton, Ontario, to give a flying display before going to New York to start a good-will tour of the United States, says a Montreal message to-day.

The flight commander, Squadron – Leader Robert Oxspring, said the worst part of their trip, which took 13 hours actual flying time, was between Iceland and Labrador.

They encountered “terrific” headwinds up to 150 m.p.h. over the Arctic, but otherwise their trip was uneventful.

Judgment for possession of a room at 120, Brook-street, Derby, at present occupied by Mr. William King, his wife, his 15-years-old twins and his three-years old daughter, was granted at Derby County Court yesterday to the tenant, Mrs. Alice Holmes.

Judge R.A. Willes said that much as he symphatised with the sub-tenant, who would only be living with his whole family in such overcrowded conditions because the housing position was desperate, Mr. King was not legally entitled to stay in the house.

The judge added that he was suspending possession for one month only in the hope that the authorities concerned would take steps to help Mr. King quickly.

Accompanied by Peter William Marjot, another 18-year-old student, of Magple Hall-road, Chatham, Kent, Slade had been spending a climbing holiday at the Langdale.

Marjot made his way down to find that Slade was dead, and a party of climbers recovered the body.

General McArthur, Supreme Allied Commander in Japan, today granted its people “virtually a de facto peace.” Though Japan is “still technically at war, there are few places more completely at peace,” he told them in a New Year message.

The past year had seen “progressive and far-reaching relaxation of occupation controls,” and the day would soon come when “political maturity, social justice and self-sufficiency will make Japan a sturdy, highly-respected member of the society of free nations.”

Japan was “rapidly approaching the economic ideal – free private, competitive enterprise,” he said.

Exports had almost doubled in 1949. Production of coal and other basic components of industrial activity were gradually approaching prewar levels.

Tonbridge Goal Bore Charmed Life

Snatched Goal And Points

Tonbridge 1 : Hereford 0

Although penned in their own half for long periods, Tonbridge managed to get the vital goal against Hereford last Saturday and with it went two more Southern League points. Bombarded and battered in the second half, the home defence held on their lead.

The Tonbridge goal bore a charmed life, but credit must be given to Purdie, his backs and halves, for withstanding the pressure.

In midfield Hereford most times outplayed Tonbridge and their smooth passing movements were also very accurate. Time after time every one of their players, with the exception of the goalkeeper, was in the Tonbridge half of the field and yet in some miraculous way the home defence held out.

It is true that some of their clearances were rather wild and that the ball almost invariably went to an opponent, but the main fact was that the ball was prevented from entering the Tonbridge net.

Mr. Vandervelde, the 70-year-old Socialist leader and Minister of Public Health in Belgium’s Coalition Cabinet, resigned his portfolio tonight by the authority of the Executive of the Belgian Labour party.

None of the other Socialist Ministers, however, seem inclined to follow the example of their leader, and the life of the Government is not menaced at this stage.

Mr. Vandervelde is said to have resigned because of divergences of opinion between him and other members of the Cabinet, including even other Socialist Ministers, regarding the policy of non-intervention in Spain, the recruiting of volunteers, the sending of arms to the Popular Front, and the incomplete satisfaction given to Belgium by the Madrid Government after the recent murder of Baron de Borchgrave, a Belgian diplomatic official in Madrid.

The Catholic members of the Government demanded that Belgium should break off relations with the Spanish Government because of this last incident, while M. Vandervelde wanted to refer the question of a money indemnity to a court of arbitration.

More than 3,000 people saw a 17-year-old Crowborough girl, Heather Cooper, of Eridge-road, win the open jumping event at Mayfield Horse show and Gymkhana on Monday.

Golden-haired Heather was the first rider in the competition to complete a clear round. Two others followed-the Hon. S. Money-Coutts and Mr. W. Stokes. But in the Jump-off they had 14 faults against Heather’s four-and the judges awarded her the red rosette and £30 prize money.

Officials said that entries for the show were “many more than usual,” in spite of the fact that another large South of England show was being held on the same day. And a judge later described the event as “A grand show, well-supported-just what is needed.”

The Mayfield silver challenge cup went to Miss Anne Highwood, winner of the local novices’ jumping event. The junior silver challenge cup and the juvenile jumping competition were won by 15-year-old Charles Embling, of Charlwood, on “Mousy III”-and he also took third prize in the same event on “Molly III”.
