In the second half the Eleven Brothers
came out with nerr vigor but found the
Sporting Club a real tough castou er,
SThroughout the mitch the Sporting Club
" displayed better football, and had it
not been for the exeCellent goal-keeping
of Bill, the Sporting Club rould have no
Sdoubt\scored a "basket" of go.ls.
The gam p was played in a friendly and.
sportman-like mannerr and all the spectam-
tors (though some of then night have
been disappointed) agreed that it was a
good g,-ne of football.
At the end of the match the Acting

set in the current football tour-nment by
defeating the Eleven Brothers of Philips-
I burg (one of the strongest teans or. the
island) 1 0 in their encounter on Suin-
-dy November 12.
Fair crowd (as is always the ~9bEa
Case bt Mhrigot) was present to see the
,match, which everyone (except the players
.&' od Entrepide) thought would have been a
S"all-over" for the Eleven Brothers.
En. repide however reinforced with such

BOXING

SPORTING TIGER GETS T.K.O. DECISION
OVER KID BING

By: George Springer

Sporting Tiger of St. Kitts was a-
vr-rdcld a T.K.O deCision over Kid Bing
of St. lkrtin iwhen they met in the min
bout at the Factory Social Centre last
Saturday night.
The fight, which was scheduled for ten
rounds, ca ne to an abrupt end in two
minutes and five seconds of the sixth
round, when after a dynanic exchange
of punches at.close range followed by
a clinch, Kid Bing applied what is known
in wrestling as the "headlock" on Sport-
ing Tiger. The referee, Victor Lovell
(one of Barbadosts Leading boxers who
is at present attached to this Colonyts
Police Force) was obliged to use much
effort to get Sporting Tiger fron under
the DutchranTs powerful lock.
There was pandenonuiin at the ringside
"s Bingts seconds felt that too much
force -was used by the referee against
their idol, and after remonstrating and
threatening "Don't you do that again"
they quickly threw in ttie towel leaving
the fairly lar.e crowd disappointed and
duri-f wounded.
The seconds of both fighters next took
off their gloves and Kid Bing crossed
over to Sporting Tiger's corner and'ex-
tended his hand. The Tiger, however, re-
fused to shake hands.
It 1'.s indeed regrettable that this
fight, which w.s undoubtedly one of'the
most thrilling seen while it lasted,
wns terminated in this nrnner, and it
is to be hoped that all boxers would &-
ways endeavour to adhere to the proper
rules of the gane.
THE BATTLE

The fight was fast and furious from
the gong and the points were almost
even when it came to an end.
Kid Bijg, standing over four inches
taller and from all appearances a pore
experienced fighter than his opponteit
made good use of his reach in stregIit
jabbing and uppercutting
n Spting Tiger shpt apd.

showed remarkable skill in bobbing and
weaving (ducking) and was al1ys superior
to his opponent at infighting.
In the first round both fighters ex-
changed evay imaginable punch in the
book.
In the second round Kid Bing was
caught with some round arm swings and
showed his displeasure. later in the
round his head came in contact (either
intentionally or unintentionally) with
the Tigerts. This action was followed
by booes from the crowd.
In the following three rounds two
angry fighters went all out for "the
kill" in terrific toe-to-toe slugging
but Sporting Tiger alvwys appeared to
be the stronger at the end of each
round.
During an excl.nge of punches about mid-
way'in the sixth, round, Ding received a
jab, about the sane tine he looked as
though he wanted to say something to
either the referee of his opponent,
Bing retaliated and a barrage of punches
were again exchanged until they went in-
to a clinch. It was during this clinch
that Bing applied the neck-hold on

extend to you a cordial welcome, assuring
you, that I consider it a high privilege
to be standing before you.here in this
historical fort and ackreessing you on this
illustrious day for St. Eustatius.
The gun salute fired' some instants ago
by the U.S.S. "Richard Kraus" as reenact-
nent of the national gunsalute by the
United States Brig of- I ar "Andrew Doria"
on Noveriber 16th. 1776 and its- reply by '
this historical fort by eleven gun shots,
leads us back into history of this event;
Slet us reflect now a moment upon the signi-
ficance of this salute.
By the "Decla.ration of Independence"
adopted by the representatives of the 113
colonies on Lth. July 1776, the young Re-
public of the Continental States was torn
and started to fight for Independence a-
gairst England.
The necessary supplies' ~-cx for this
warfare were hard to get, as England was
powerful at sea and controlled the na2ga-
tion and ships carrying supplies for the
American rebels.
What mws St. Eustatius, like that time?
Because of its splendid location a key to
the Spanish main, it developed into an im-
portant centre of trade and commerce and
free port since it was taken by the Dutch
from the Spaniard in 1626;
Ships froh all over _the world frequented
the harbour, bringing their merchandise to
traded for other products 'from foreign
countries.
The protection of the harbour was tdken
care. of by the powerful batters of Itort
Orange, Fort Rpyal, Fort Amiteraa and

This action was followed by booes f ron the, crowd. In the following three rounds two angry fighters went all out for "the kill" in terrific toe—to-toe slugging but Sporting Tiger.always appeared to be the stronger at the end of each round. During an exchange of punches about nidijay' in the sixth, round, Ding received a jab, about the sane tine he looked as though he wanted to say sonething to either the referee of his opponent.

COURTH A L L HEWS" On Monday November 20, the Court of Justice held its first cession here for criminal cases. There was bat one case to be handled. The.judge Dr. Van Veen presided, Dn Bouwer represented the people as public'prosecutor and the recorder was Mr, Nicastia, The accused were two young men one 16 years and the other 18 years of agej charged with having stolen three sheqp. The young men confessed guilt to the charges against them whereafter the public prosecutor demanded a punishment of six months imprisonment conditionally against each accused with as special condition that the owner of the sheep be compensated by them for the loss_sustained, and further a fine of f 50,— to be paid by the 16'year old youngster and a fine of f '75.— to he paid bv the older accused. The judge Dr. Van Veen eendemadd both young men by confirming the demand, Tuesday November 21, wag the date appointed for civil cases. It is surprising how many disputes concerning land is brought before our courts lately One of the causes for this ? is that the value of land has increased enormously recently^ Dr. Van Veen presided while Mr, [ Nicastia assisted hin as recorder^ The case was treated in chambers. This case THIS between the Little Bay Hotel and one of its_employee's. The herring was not public. There followed one d:£ vorce Rase and two petitions requesting partition and division of the floods of two 'Couples who have recently been divorced. Five disputes concerning land.TTas brought before the judge. Three of these were withdrawn and one postponed until a later date, while the other which was a dispute about a piece of land located'at Cole Bay was postponed until U p.m. the same afternoon, when the Court would go on the spot for personal observation by His Honour the judge. This Case promised to be interesting because our. two local "ttorneys (Tfelter Buncamper and TfellaCe 1iterson) stood opposed -to each other in this case. However, when the 8ourt' Convened at Cole Bay Wallace Peterson, produced so much documentary evidence that Tfelter Buncamper withdrew his case which also involves the payment of" the costs of the law-suit by his client^ ****}HBHHBn rKMXMM ii X lH HHHWHHt %  JHaSHi•HSWHHfr -:KB$-K-& /

By the "Declaration of Independence" adopted by the representatives of the H3 colonies on Uth. July 1776, the young Republic of the Continental States was born and started to'fight for Independence against England, The necessary supplies' xxmoxxx for this warfare were hard to get, as England was powerful at sea and controlled the na^gation and ships carrying supplies for the American rebels. What was St^ Eustatius, like that time? Because of its'splendid location a key to the Spanish main, it developed into an important centre of trade and commerce and free port since it was taken by the Dutch from the Spaniard in 1626^ Ships from all over the world frequented the harbour, bringing their merchandise to trade for'other products from foreign countries. The protection of the harbour was taken Care of by the powerful batteries of Rort Orange, Fort Royal, Fort Amsterdam and Fort Rotterdam, The West Indian Company had the Is*n4 properly reinforced, (To be continued in next issue) VOLUME TIGHTLY BOUND

On more than one occasion the forward line of the Eleven Brothers cane within scoring range but always missed the target. At the end of the first half the score was 1 0 in favour of the Sporting Club, -. In the second half the Eleven Brothers came out with new vigor but found the Sporting Club a real tough Customer* Throughout the match the Sporting Club displayed better football, and had it not been for the exeCellent goal-keeping of Bill, the Sporting Club would, have no doubt^scored a "basket" of goals. The gamp was played in a friendly and. sportman-like manner and all the spectators (though some of them might have been disappointed) agreed that it was a good gone of football. At the end of the natch the Acting Governor of the Hetherlands Antilles presented the trophy to the Captain of the Sporting Club who had won the game 1-0.

Afair crowd (as is always the KXXKR case at Ivferigot) was present to see the match, which everyone (except the players of Entrepide) thought would have been a "walk-over" for the Eleven Brothers. Entrepide however reinforced with such football veterans as Alberic Richards and George was determined to prove that experience is better than youth, and did just fihat. The crowd was amaaed to see the players of Entrepide as it were; giving the Eleven Brothers a lesson in football. At the.end Of the match which ended in a 1-0 victory for the Entrepide many spectators cauls hardly believe what they^had seeni The goal was scored by George, B 0 X I N G SP0RTHIG TIGER GETS T.K.O. DECISION OVER KID BING By: George Springer Sporting Tiger of St. Kitts was awarded a T.K.O, decision over Kid Bang of St. Lfcrtin when they met in the main bout at the Factory Social Centre last Saturday night. The fight, which was scheduled for ten rounds, cane to an abrupt end in two minutes and five seconds of the sixth round, when after a dynamic exchange of punches at.close range followed by a clinch, Kid Bing applied what is known in wrestling as the "headlock" on Sporting Tiger. The referee, Victor Lovell (one of Barbados's Leading boxers who is at present attached to this Colony's Poli c e Force) was obliged to use much effort to get Sporting Tiger [ from under the Dutchman's powerful lock. There was pandemonium at the ringside as Bing's seconds felt that too much i force was used by the referee against their idol, and after remonstrating and, threatening "Don't you do that again" they quickly.threw in i*te towel leaving the fairly large crowd disappointed and dumb-founded. The seconds of both fighters next t
