DEPUTY LEVENSTONE ILL

We have received words that Deputy
Mathew Levenstone of Saba is ill.
According to information a meeting
of the Executive Council of the Wind-
ward Islands which was scheduled to
be held here on Tuesday April 3, had
to be cancelled due to his illness.
It is reported here that he has
suffered a nervous-'breakdown, and
that his condition warrants alarm.
We hope that Deputy Levenstone's
condition may not be too serious, and
wish him a speedy recovery.



NEWS FROM FLLMINGO ISLAND BONA `IF

MYSTERIOUS CURES SEEN IN I30:lI

(By a Special Correspondent)

For the past few months numerous
cases have been reported on our island
in which mysterious cures are ascribed
to the powers of Custom Officer and
part-time hypnotist, Mr. Clifton E.
Lopes.
It is believed that this young m;n,
basing his theories on the teaching
of Christ, does possess healing powers,
According to information received,
in some cases just the touch of his
fingers on an affected part of the
human body can produce astounding re-
sults, As proof thereof is lcntioned
the case of a twelve year old school-
boy, whose knee and other parts of his
body were covered with warts, (growths
appearing mostly in face, on fingers,
toes, knee-caps and other extremities


of the human body). During m
his hypnotic demonstrations
last December in aid of the
CHAMBER~S programme to give t
fortunate children of our isi
a joyful Christmas, Mr. Lopes-
ticed that one of the youngster
(the aforementioned 12 year ol
boy) was afflicted with warta'
lost no time anid with a few p
of the right hand over the spoti
and with the sugcestion that the
warts disappear, it wasn't long
after that (much to the surprisel
of the boy's parents and a polij
man who witnessed this act) the i
warts completely disappeared.
Intelli-ant, ambitious and gif
young men like this should be a.
forded an opportunity by some or
sanization to further develop th
talents.
Many who know the gentleman wel
feel sure that the last has not
yet been seen or heard of him, f
his experiments arc going on daii
and he seems to be gifted with
great inspiration and intuition,
Certain predictions he has made
have also come true in such a wa4
that many prominent citizens herf
have core to recognize in him
something of a prophet.

Once more we would like to make it quite clear, that, should as the result of a fire, accident or qerious -illness, people of these districts should suffer (heavy, property damage or losti of lives) because of the lack of telephone connection, the Executive Council, and the Executive Counoil alone should be held responsible, ************** STEAMER WITH FROZEN GOODS -FROM MIAMI MAY MAKE REGULAR STOPS HERE The -San Martin a 600-ton steamer achored in the harbour at [Philipsburg earlier this weak [and aboard were 8-tons of frozen !meats,' chickens, 'fruits etc., ;from Miami for the merchants who [deal in these items. This is thesecond time that this steamer bas brought frozen food and fruits from Miami for the island, and in a short interview with the agent of the boat Mr; C.A. MacDonald, we were told that if enough business can be I found in St. Maarteh, this steamer would stop in at Philipsburg harbour twice per, month; The San Martin which is skippered by Mr. "Javier Egulrauh and flies a Panamanian flag, starts the trip at Santo Domingo from where provisions and fruits are taken to Miami, at Miami the steamer' takes other cargo and her next stop is St. Thomas, then St'.

Mr. Bruinsma who is the agent for Heineken Beer, and who lias done a great deal in making this beer the number one seller on the island, was forced to leave the island sometime ago due to ill health. Mr. Bruinsma even though reduced by quite a number of pounds, looks well; and in a short interview he told our reporter that he feels well. We welcome Mr, Bruinsma back and hope that he will continue to enjoy good health. *****;:-********* REORGANIZATION CF POLICE DEFART1X171.

Mr. Dr. De Costa Gomez is the President of the N.V.P. (National People's Party; the largest political party in the Netherlands Antilles, and he is also the leader of the loyal opposition in the Staten (Legislature) of the Netherlands Antilles He is considered by friend and foe as the "Brain" of the Netherlands Antilles, and is highly respected for his statemanship at home'as •well as abroad (in the U.S.A., the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Africa) In spite of all this he'is a very humble and simple man, and has sacrificed much for the love of his people and countryIn his native island of Curacao he is considered by all as a great friend and defender of the working people, and_ because of this, his party has never been defeated in Curacao. Upon his arrival here, he was welcomed at the Juliana airport by Board-members of the W.I.P.P. and N.V.P. as well as members and supporters of these two parties, "The same afternoon he left for Saba by chartered speed-boat. He was accompanied on his trip-to. Saba by Jackie Voges,-Mr3.-Jas (Courage) Labega-Bryan (Board-member of the W.I.P.P, Section St. Maarten) and Mrs. Helen Lake, Upon their arrival at the FortBay, Saba at 5:30 p.m. they were welcomed by a large group among wnome were Mr. Henry Every, Mr; %  Frank Ha'ssell, Mr. tf.H.

The same night the Windward IslandsPeople 's Party (W.I.P.P.)" 1 Section Saba, hold a political meeting at the Guest-house in -. The Bottom. This meeting was attended by about 300 people who listened attentively to the many speakers (Jose Lake, Jas (Courage) Labega-Bryan, Jackie Voges), but who paid special attention to Mr. Dr. De Costa Gomez or "Doctoor" as he is commonly called in Curacao, as he explained the real issues and problems which face the Netherlands Antilles to-day because of the mal-administration of the D.P/P.P.A.-Gang. The applauds were loud and long as this "Great Antillian pledged the support of over 30,000 voters of the National People's Party to the Windwa'rd--Islands People's Party in its struggle for Freedom and Justice. -; There was a solemn silence over the crowd as "Doctoor" read the following declaration: %  "THE W.I.P.P. AND THE N.V.P. ARE PARTIES OF PRINCIPLE THAT DEFEND THEHUMAN RIGHTS, AND WHICH BELIEVE IN AND FIGHT FOR THE DIGNITY OF MAN. IN KEEPING HEREWITH THE W.I. P.P. AND THE N.V.P. HAVE JOINED FORCES IN THE WINDWARD ISLANDS TO FIGHT THE COMMON ENEMY AND PUT AN END TO CORRUPTION AND ALL MAL-ADMINISTRATIONIN THE WINDWARD ISLANDS ONCE AND FOR ALL.

At the end of this history making declaration the crowd clapped and cheered long and loud, and among the cheering and clapping could -'barely be heard a few feeble, "booes" from a hand-ful of the few members of the D.P. (Dead Party) which are now left on this most beautiful and picturesque island in the Caribbean. The last speaker of the meeting was the young, courageous, straight-forward afld determined Sabian and former ^jdmihistrator^of Saba Mr. Henry Every, who iT 9 very clear.and persuasive voice explained, the great struggle with

(To be continued in the next issue). 1HHHHHHHHHHHMHHHHHHMI DEPUTY LEVENSTONE ILL We have received words that Deputy Mathew Levenstone of Saba is ill. According to information a meeting of the Executive Council of the Windward Islands which was scheduled to be held here on Tuesday April 3, had to be cancelled due to his illness. It is reported here that he has suffered a nervous-breakdown, and that his condition warrants alarm. We hope that Deputy Levenstone's condition nay not be too serious, and wish him a speedy recovery. ** w ** it# K ii mnw NEWS FROM FLAMINGO I5IAND BONAIRE MYSTERIOUS CURES SEEN IN BQI'AIRZ (By a Special Correspondent) For the past few months numorous cases have been reported on our island in which mysterious cures are ascribed to the powers of Custom Officer and part-time hypnotist, Mr. Clifton E. Lope s. It is believed that this young nan, basing his theories on the teaching of Christ, does possess healing powers, according to Information received, in some cases just the touch of his fingers on an affected part of the human body can produce astounding results. As proof thereof is mentioned the case of a twelve year old schoolboy, whose knee and other parts of his body were covered with warts, (growths appearing mostly in face, on fingers, toes, knee-caps and other extremities of the human body). During one of his hypnotic demonstrations given last ffiecember in aid of the JUNIOR CHAMBER'S programme to give the unfortunate children of our island a Joyful Christmas, Mr. Lopes noticed that one of the youngsters (the aforementioned 12 year old boy) was afflicted with warts; He lost no tine and with a few passes of the right hand over the spots and with the suggestion that the warts disappear, it wasn't long after that (much to the surprise of the boy's parents and a policeman who witnessed this act) the warts completely disappeared. Intelligent, ambitious and gifted young men like this should be afforded an opportunity by some organization to further develop their talants. Many who know the gentleman well, feel sure that the last has not yet been seen or heard of him, for his experiments arc going on daily aid he seems to be gifted with great inspiration and intuition. Certain predictions he has made have also come true in such a way that many prominent citizens here have come to something of recognize in him prophet.
