Mr. Editor:-
Please, I w-ill like,you to en-
t'erthis following Item.ih your
newspaper,
Well Sir do you think it is
right, that from last year Septem-
ber with the hurricane Miss Mary's
house was mashed-up, and up to now
it is the same way,.
Miss Mary was one of the com-
T.itteb members here who was out
picking< up.money fo- the hurricane
fundof Aruba and have collected
q som. of fls,400,-- cash.
Do you think it is right 'for a
poor person to lose so much and
get nothing in return'? She has
lost most of her things, such as
furnituree, wares, half of her
house and also her energy, because
s'he helped in the 'Committee toget
help from the people here, She is
not married-anid has no .one to'help
Icr and is also advancing in age,
she is about Ohe age of 56 years.
Well, Mr. Editor I do think that
she really needs help, because
the government should be there to
help the needy first, ancd not
those who can help themselves. I
therefore thank you very much in.
advance ard :iill be expecting to
read.this letter in your paper
newspaper this webk.
While I remain as ever,
A faithful reader of your popular
newspaper,

it is right, and it may be'recalled

SRED WINE. RED FACE
WASHINGTON:- For a brief moment Monday night, President Kennedy was
simply John F. Kennedy, slightly embarrassed male.
A flick of the presidential wrist accidentally toppled a glass and:
splattered the ivory satin rown of Mrs. Luis Munoz Mirin with the
fine red wine of France.
The presidential face reddened perceptibly. PresidcXtial appo~l
flowed. Mrs. Munoz laughed and the state dinner for Governor .mzS
merrily on.
The gown and stain are not destined for Puerto Rico's histproe
archives*, however. A prudent Housewife as well as a White ioui
of honor, Puerto Rico's First Lady sent the dress to the Cleasn
the next day.

WINDWARD ISLANDS' OPINION SATURDAY NOV. 18. 1961. This however if true is a veryshocking statement to be made by ttiis gentleman because everyone" knows that the people of Colebay voted for Deputy Peters and Wathey one. hundred percent in the last election. If something is not done soon, you can say goodbye Colebay. B.(Gigi)A. Fleming Mr. Editor:Please. I will like.you to enter'this following item in your newspaper. Well Sir do you think it is right, that from last year September with the hurricane Miss Mary's ; house was mashed-up, and up to now it is the same way, Miss Mary was one of the committee members here who was out picking up.money forthe hurricane fund"of Aruba and have collected a som of fIs.400.— cash. Do you think it is right for a poor person to lose so much and get nothing in return? She has lost most of her things, such as ^.furnitures, vra.res, half of her house and also her energy, because che helped in the 'Committee toget help from the people here. She is not married-and. lias no .one to help her and is als.o advancing in age, she is about c bhe age of 56 vears. Well, Mr. Editor^I do think that she really needs help, because the government should be. ther.e to help the needy first, and not those who can help themselves. I therefore thank you very much in advance ard '/ill be expecting to read.this letter in your paper newspaper this week. While I remain as ever, A faithful reader of your popular newspaper, San Nicolas Aruba, N.A. Ed. Note: Of course I do not think it is right, and it may be recalled that on more than one occasion I have called the attention of our readers to the manner in which the hundreds of thousands of guilders which XSXXXE were sent here to assist victims of hurricane "Donna" ware being used by the Local Hur.ri-c^e Committee, which, consists of: L~puty M. Peters, Deputy Claude Wathey, Lt. Governor J.J. Beaujon, J.C, Larmonie, Clem Labega & Co. Dear Mr. Editor of the W.Is' 0pinion: Please allow space in your most widely read paper to say "Thank You" to all whom it may concern. It was with great pride that we read in the October first and second issue of the W.Is 1 Opinion that the island of St. Martin both Dutch and French side will soon be in the position of offering to its people electricity, one of the many blessings long needed to make this little island thecentre, of all worthy praises. Nevertheless we have all come tp learn that it is never too late to do good, and there can never be an end if not a begini*i : -&. In view of these facts the "Voice of The Spot Light" is very proud to express our appreciation; and at the came time congratulate!on to those responsible for this great achievement which has caused quite a lot of anxiety to our people both here.and in Curacao, and we need not mention how the people are wondering if this is really • the fcExxHtxgxiDX beginning of a long awaited fulfilment. If this should really be the case, then "The Voice.of the Spot light" wishes the authorities God's ..most richest blessings on every mpVe thatthey may make on behalf of our -littie island, and its. people. In view~of the above mentioned success "The Voice of the 'S pot Light" ds very pleased to vioce the following reminder to our people of both Dutch and French St. Martini (Ofcourse we really don't % hope that our people may ever need them. But it is still good to be" reminded) Shduld at any time one become the victim of an electrical shock they should rememberthat every second of contact with the source of electricity, lessens the victim's chances of survival. If this should ever happen please remember: First break S
