Beaujon to consult the seetxons St. Ifaarteii and Saba and endeavour to obtain their consent to increase the amount of fl,390.o6o,— allotted to Statia by fl. ^000.—; Sfr, Lopes then asked the Chairaan Ifr, Beaujon'if this request had been complied withi I*.

In fact to us it was nothing by a repetition of :x>aningless words. But Deputy Lopes was ncfcfc satisfied with this sort of thing he •wanted to have a definite answer^ So finally Ifr.

Ifoat then is Denorcacy? I If the Denocritic party was the Denccrqjbic party, ^eoplewpuTd never be cheated of their rights. Are you going to allow your children to be robbed of their rightful heritage?]To allow this to continue is blindness, "^flie^e* there is no vision the people perish," People often are inclined to thirik, that a dietatcr ship* is a one nan*s power, A dictator cannot execute his power* unless you allow hin to. Are you going to allow your children and grand— chHldrgn, to hold you responsible for a dictatorship? There are Windward Islanders, that are neutralists, a dictatDship grows out.of neutralisni A dictatorship is corpised of nenbers, it is a body, or a groupj that seeks foreign aidi, Maybe the^r thoughts are set upon Saba and St, Eustatius, hut the"only"aid in'those isla n ds d the Denocritic party, and on .the Uth. o£ June, the people' shall be the judges. They with us shall t rcnove dictatorship fron the Windward Islands,' A government shall"reign in its ibead, one for the people, chosen by", the v£l f eople, "Long Live the People," Its the Voice of the "World"* the four .corners of the earth are shouting* "FREEDOM, JUSTICE, LIBERTY,.

But are we just going to be admirers and lookerson and leave .hin to fight the battle alone? /ire we going to keep oh slunberjng and never pay heed to the wrongs that are 'going on around us? While the fi$it is on, are we not going to help fight? Are we going to wait xuitill the fight is over and our doom is seal to start to fight? By that tine ny friends it will 'be too late, we nust fight now while the fight is on, n/e. cannot stop and stand by as lookerson^while other people ax fighting for us.

FOR TIDED TEE AMD CLINCH THE 1962 CffiJfflOBSHI?; ... ._ .. i On Sunday last a large croiTd was on hand to see the natch between Caterpillars and K.L.I I. at the Cul-do-Sac Sport-He^Ld. The Caterpillars of Ihilipsbtrg (1961 chanpions) and the K.L.II. of Cul-de-3ac (1961 runner-up) are the tvvo strongest teams in the present baseball compensation, and even thou-h Caterpillars have defeated K.L.K. in their first, two encounters there is still a conciet between baseball fans here, as to -which of the two teans is the stronger* As always when these two teans clash, there were xany charning ladies shouting for both sides, • Caterpillars determined to continue their "winning striek" scored >2 runs in the very first inniag> but were unable to score for the next two innings, due to the steady pitching of Edwin Philips. In the Uth. inning Caterpillars soorred l"run, but by this tine K.L.K. 'who had' scored 1 in the 2nd. and 2 in the 3rd. innings had tied the score (3 3).' Caterpillars then went on to take the lead.by scoring 1 in the 5th,,'dL in the 6th. and 2 in the 7th, innings "Captain J. Hodge of K.L.II. who by this tine realised that pitcher E. Philips was tired,^had hin replaced on the : hill" by H. (Tanpico) Scott who stopped the 6ats, by^ pitching two scoreless innings, this however was too late to save, the-gam e; because the young pitch&Bg "star" L!,_ Cannegieter was able to prevent K.L.I& from'scoring fron the Uth. to the 8tft. iftning It vras not until in the" 9th, inning that K.L.K. was able to score 1 run npre. ". And thus the gane which was a-very exciting one ended in a-7 U victory for the Cats! Caterpillars who have won all their games in tie coiTpetition, now have 99 out of lOO chances to becone the 1962' baseball chanpions. we feel that lfr.~.J. Illidge and :r. Victor Annicchiarico deserve credit for the fine job -they have done in makiilg] the Caterpillars a good.baseball team. %  JHHH:-X-5:-:.-X-5KK!-;HHHBH{ISLAND COUIICIL METING On Friday April 13, 1962 a combined meeting of the 'three sections of the Council of the Island Territory the Yflndward Islands was held at the'?.iI.IJU Hall in Philipsburg, St. I&arten.

TRIBUTE-m-THE LATE REV. WILLIAM J. BARRETT m js CHAIRMAN AND" GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT OF' THE LEEWARD ISLANDS DISTRICT OF THE METHODIST %  CHURCH by The Rev. K. R. Khan, Supt. St. Maarten *' The news of the death of The Rev. WILLIAM J. BARRETT" was a shock to his many friends throughout the Caribbean Methodists and nonMethodist alike. In-.his passing the W.I. Methodist church has lost a good minister of Jesus Christ. As a Circuit minister, his influence upon the more thoughtful of his people was far reaching, and by his warm friendly personality, he : mediated for many throughout the islands, 'the love of the Master he served so-faithfully. He was the first Methodist minis-" ter to be appointed to the Aruba circuit and with our own Richard • Hazel can be looked upon as the "Father of Methodism" for.that island. He ha3 also served for many years in Curacao and dominica. Rev, Barrett has claimed many Windward Islanders as his personal friends and had a tender spot in his.heart for the Netherlands Antilles. As Chairman of the District, he was never too busy with his own problems to give advice and active help to both small and momentous matters when referred to him'. He has done as much as any man to help our people grow spiritually. In his missionary service -and in his saintly Christian character, there were marks of true greatness, 'and he won the affection and respect of not only his people, but of his colleagues, both W.I, and missionary alike 0 He has given 35 of his 60 years to the Church'and people he had loved so well, and his name will ever live.in W.I. Methodism. %  ADDRESS GIVEN AT THE FUNERAL OF THE LATE REV, WILLIAM J. BARRETT by The Rev. Lenard C. Carty. M.B.E. • *'-• %  %  •*-• %  2 Cor. 11 28.
