puty Claude. Wathey jumped on the
bandstand, at the bull-fight in C~l-
de-Sac many expected to hear him
blow a trumpet or play a guitar, but
instead he announced: Everybody is
invited to a dance, which will be held
here tomorrow, from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m."
Many (even though under their "acid")
were' shocked by this announcement,
and the applaud was very week. De-

Since we do not endorse-bullfightsD
on Sunday we investigated the mat-
ter and discovered that no previous
permission was granted by the Lt.
Governor to keep a public dance at.
Cul-de-Sac on Sunday.
Considering it our duty to .protect
our community and especially our
YOUTHS from the menace of "Bullfights"
on Sunday, we called the Major of
Police by telephone on Sunday night..
about 8:30 p.m. and informed him that
according to our information a public
dance was being held at Cul-de-Sac.
without permission. He promised to_
check the matter as.he had no pre-
vious knowledge of it.
To our surprise and astonishment the
bullfight continued, and when we: check-
ed the matter with the Major the next
morning, we were told by him that.
permission was granted verbally by
the authorized person, either in the
late afternoon or the early evening
hours of Sunday August 13.
The only authorized person to give.
permission for the keeping of pub~~i
dances (bullfights) on this islati
is the Lt. Governor Abd as far a&

WEAT IS LIFE?
BY: V. L. Tobin

Among the many questions that have
been asked, and have been answered;
there is one that is without interpreta-
tion Lrnd that is the question: "What
is Life".
If 1 should ask, what is life? There
are mrny answers that can be given.
But even though an idea can be given-
about it; yet there can be no definite:
solution to the problem. EveZotionists
have i.ried their est. for centuries to
work cn the minds of living beings the:
trend of evolution. But despite the many
ideas given educationally, there are
yet many doubts about their inventions
yithir the-r biological teetta. Perhaps
you're thinking the same, or in some
other direction. Yet there is one de-
finite question; What is Life?
The modern evolutionist does not.a-
gree, in all points with theology.
(Tc be continued next issue)

They'accuse and judge this vicious l aare.

This brute, butcher, and murderous rake
The stench of death he lelt in hi-s wake.,
In Auschigtz he built a real hell:
Torture, gas, burn, he did these well.
On his face he wore a terrible crooked smile.
As six million Jews -walked the "last mile."

An agent of the Third Reich, he w-s este~eed,
As he killed, tortured, gassed, .and maimed
There are "people" in this world even today?
"Eichannm should get a medal", thc say.
He already has a medal, painted ir deep red,
Pinned on his heart by the gingers of the dead.

He was born in Linz, Austriaf fifty-five years ago,
As a boy his vicious blo r cause-d blood to flow.
He pummelled and killed a JewiiJh schoolmate,
But this only aroused his dirty vicious hater.
After the wa r he fled to Argentina far away,
There his victims seized him one sunny day.

He was flown to Jerusalem and put in a cage,
He was scared he'd be gassed and wqs in a rage.
"We warn the living and honor the dead,"
Theme are the words good Ben-Gurion' said,
All mankind stands on trial with him,

Raise their voices and raise their hands.

WAT IS LIKE? BY: V. L. Tobin Among the many questions that have been asked, and have been answered; there is one that is without interpretation end that is the question: "What is Life". If 1 should ask, what is life? There are mrny answers that can be given. But even though an idea can be given about it; yet there can be no definite solution to the problem. Evolutionists have tried their best for centuries to work en the minds of living beings the trend of evolution. But dispite tho many ideas given educationally, there are yet many doubts about their inventions within the^r biological tests. Perhaps you're thinking the same, or in some other direction. Ye*, there is one definite question; What is Life? Tho modern evolutionist does not agree in all points with theology. (To be continued next issue) THE NEXT. IS SUE OF THI S PAPER WTT.T.

"THIS WORL£JJNi)ER._GaDJl Mr.. Le'jues. is the Secretary of the Y 1 s Men's Club mf. Aruba, and a member of the Board of Directors of the Y.M.C.A. on that island. On Tuesday last Mr. Lejuez gave a talk over the "Voice of St. Maarten" in which ho informed the people of the objectives of the Y.M.C.A. He: also pointed out the importance of the Y.M.C. A. and the need for such an organization in a community such as ours. Mr. Lejuez., who left by K.L.M. for Aruba on Friday August 1 8, ended his interview with us with the following remark: "To strengthen the Youth -of today by assisting them in XK adopting true Christian characters, would definately build a better community; 1 for said he: "It is easier to mend boys than to bend men. C A R I B.l.LR (Continued from page 1) pay any attention to the request of the Watheys even if such a request was made. Shortly after receiving this information however, Mr. Cooper called us (in the middle of the month) and asked us to discontinue the advertisement which wo; were carrying for Caribair. We asked him if we could continue the ad. until the end of that month, and ho replied no, that we should stop it immediately. He gave as reason for this: finan cial. dif=. ficultieg. He however continued to advertise over the local radio station (this station is owned by the Watheya) even though it cost more to advertise on the radio, than to do so in this paper. Usually the paper on which the newspaper is printed comes from Puerto Rico by Caribair We expected a shipment of paper on Monday July 2*+, but did not received it. On Tuesday July 25, we sent the following cable to our suppliers in Puerto Rico: "SHIP PAPER IMMEDIATELY" Up to Monday July 31, we did not receive the paper and sent the following cable: "WHY WAS NOT PAPER SHIPPED" the same day we received the following cable: "PAPER SHIPPED CARIBAIR 26th" We took this cable to Caribair's office in Philipsburg the same day Mr. Cooper was not in the office, but we showed it to the person on duty, who promised to inform Mr. Cooper, in spite of the fact that we made' several trips'to Caribair 1 s office we were not able to locate Mr. Cooper until Wednesday morning^ Aug.2. He told.us that he would send a memorandum to San Juan to find out what was the matter. On Thursday August 3, we received the following letter from our suppliers "July 31, 1961 Dear Mr. Lake: We answered you cable of today's date with our cable of the same date reading as follows: "PAPER SHIPPED CARIBAIR 26TH" We meant to say that delivery for immediate shipment was made

Because of her kindness, sympathetic nature and willingness to help the "less fortunate 11 she was loved and respected by many to whom she was known as "Ma". Her passing away will be a great loss not only to her children and relatives, but also to M iddle Region in particular and St. Maarten in general. She was 7 years of age.

Deputy Wathey disappointed because ha did not get tho greaft applaud he expected, repeated the announcement. Since we do not endorse bullfights, on Sundays we investigated the matter and discovered that no previous permission was granted by the Lt. Governor to keep a public dance at Cul-de-Sac on Sunday. Considering it our duty to protect our community and especially our YOUTHS from the menace of "Bullfights" on Sundays, we called the Major of Police by telephone on Sunday night about 8:30 p.m. and informed him that according to our information a public dance was being held at Cul-de-Sac without permission. He promised to check the matter as~he had no previous knowledge of it. To our surprise and astonishment the bullfight continued, and when we checked the matter with the M a j 0 r the next morning, wo wore told by him that; permission was granted verbally by the authorized person, either in the late afternoon or the early evening hours of Sunday August 13. The only authorized person to give; permission for the keeping of public dances (bullfights) on thi6 island is the Lt. Governor And as far as we Know, the present Lt. GovernorMr. JiJ. Beaujon has never before given a verbal permission to keep a public dance. We would be very pleased if Mr. Beaujon would let us know whyhe picked a Sunday to give a verbalpermission to keep a bullfight?
