i'tDear Editor;
SWe must hereby tha-'nk the editor
-and staff of the W,I's Opinion
. for the prompt manner in which
our paper notified the public
general. of the death of our
beloved mother SARAH ARRIN'DELL.
Thanking 'you a~.in, I remain,
Egbert Arrindell & family.



,~B$RSONAL INTEREST COiZS FIRST
SAYS THE POWERS THAT 1B,


Not less than a month aso the
schooner "Blue Peter left our
sunny shores for Curacao, thus
,ending a remarkable history here
Sin .the Windw.ard Islands.
This schooner was owned by the
government and has rendered to
j the people of these Islands ser-
'vice which willbl:ays be remen-
Sbered.
The Blue Peter is replaced by
Sa small steamer named. "Hertha"
Thhis steame r is the property of
'the Watheys and company. Accord-
ing to reports the -Government has
loaned the owners of the.above
'mentioned steamer quite an am... "-nt
'pf money for the sake of purchas-
a.g said steamer.
This of course is Csoewhat sur-
ising; because iri the past many
ople have askcd the government
or loans These people had to
ergo quite an enormous amount
"red tape" and finally were
shed off with a. few discourag-
words, which were: "The govern-
t have no money,"
ow strange friends? The govern-
have no money, but there's
h money to lavishly spend on
eamer There is money to
(increase)... the pay of De-
a 100 % with three years
I y, and to th-nk that these
asdo little; other than
oos arm.

in the abovementioned circum--
stances, but also in the line of.
business. For instance should some-
one apply for permission to open
a certain business which may be
profitable, they are rejected;
like in the case of the service
station.
It is high time that you the peo-
ple of St. Maarten observe that
the interest of those who call
themselves political leaders comes
first.
The are not only trying to mo-
nopolize loans, business etc., but
also your thinking.
Bernard A. Fleming.



Dear Editor:
I have understood,-however I
don't know if this is true or not,
that there ic a laC which states
that any antillian who has obtained
a medical degree from a foreign
university, must first be screen-
ed, to see if hi.~ qualifications
are equal to those of a Medical
College in Holland, if so and only
then can he practice his profession
in the Tstiierla-ndsC Antilles. As I
said before I do not know if this
law really exists, but if it does,
was Saba included? (Ed; note: It
does, and Saba. is included, be-
cause(even though Lt is treated
different) Saba is still a part of
the Net herlands Antilles)
Mr. Bloodsucker why do you take
your family to St. Kit's when they
require medical attention, have
you no confidence in our medical
deoart.ment he-e in Saba?
You should se t the example, as
you once said it was your hospi-
tal. So when you're feeling ill a-
gain spend a few days in your hos-
pital and let the howling of 'the
wind through, those aluminum louvres
rattle the brass in your dentures.
Why do you harbour such a fana-
tical hatred for Mr. Every, is it
because you cannot put your brub-
by fingers on Government funds
anymore?

PERSONAL INTEREST COMES FIRST SAYS THE POWERS THAT B5 Not less than a month ago the schooner "Blue Peter left our sunny shores for Curacao, thus ending a remarkable history here in the Windward Islands. This schooner was owned by the government and has rendered to the people of these Islands service which will-.-tlwayc be remembered. The Blue Peter is replaced by a small steamer named: "Hertha* This steame r is the property of the Watbeys and company. According to reports the government has loaned the owners of the.above mentioned steamer quite an am;,, ".nt of money for the sake of purchasing said steamer. This of course is somewhat surprising; because in the past many people have asked the government for loans These people had to undergo quite an enormous amount of "red ta.pe" and finally were brushed off with a few discouraging words, which were: "The government have no money." How strange friends? The government have no monej r but there's enough money to lavishly spend on a steamer There is aoney to hike (increase), the pay of Deputies 100 % with three years back pay, and to think that these deputies do little; other thankeep bar-stools warm. These wrongs do not only exist Dear Editor: I have understood, -however I don't know if this is true or not, that there is a law which states that any antillian who has obtained a medical degree from a foreign University, must first be screened, to see if his qualifications are equal to those of a Medical College in Holland, if so and only then can he practice his profession in the Netherlands Antilles. As I said before I do not know if this law really exists? but if it does, was Saba included? (Ed, note: It does, and Saba is included, because (even though it is treated differnt) Saba is still a part of t he Net herlands)Antilles) Mr. Bloodsucker why do you take your family to St. Kitts when they require medical attention, have you no confidence in our medical department here in Saba? You should se t the example, as you once said It was your hospital. So when you're feeling ill again spend a few days in your hospital and let the howling of the wind through those aluminum louvres rattle the bra'BS in your dentures. Why do you harbour such a fanatical hatred for Mr. Every, is it because you cannot put your brubby fingers on Government funds anymore ? A Sabian
