For Instance*,' if we should look baok through, our records of time and deeds, our hearts would surely turn and ache anew when'being .remino"ed of the way in w hioh our hurricane relief fund nad been distributed. Next to be considered"is the government low u wages, and very poor oonsi'deration for the poor obligated labourers of the islands, For the above reasons, we would appreciate very much, an answer to these few questions* Why should in"our days of autonomy; when we are flyingan *£nti}.w lian flag with six (6) stars, of whioh"arc the symbols of the sdx sister islands o*f the Antilles under" the Brotherhood of one; Central Government*,* should tine people Of these "three" Windward Islands, St. Maarte'n, St. Eustatius and Saba be paid by the Government fls*4*75 *per day as labourers in comparison to that of the other three sister islands? If no answer oan be given to these questions, then I will conclude that this is the fault of your government; and If these are the faults of .your government, it also means t*hat we have all rughts to vote *them otrb of power" and eleot a new bo'ard of representatives that would take more interest in the welfare of our poor olass of people So now is Jjour time to know whether you should free yourself from all w these 'unjust and un*Jmd"actions, or whether you would prefer %o oontinue your ever lasting crying from the heat of fire that you yourself ebntinue to promote for your own disadvantage* *' For example, let's take in'oonsideration Aruba, the natives of Aruba have now found it necessary to make a .change in their government; and there"is no one that can" stop this chage from taking plaoe, because the Arubans are the'majority of voters in their oountry, and it is them to deside, and they have also decided* The Arubans have also decided that their list of candidates' should be, oomprise*d of all irubans, to take over the governaent as representatives of the Arubansi so it is for this'Veason we the Windward Is&dders in Aruba have also decided"t6 form.a" slate of Windward Islanders, the Windward Islands People s Party ("tf.I.P.P.) with .the hope of eleoting one or even two candidates to the State n* DEAR WINDWARD ISLANDERS LET U3 ALL JOIN AS ONE AND ON JUNE 4th* VOTE FOR IHE W.I.P.P. ** Yours truly A Windward Islai der residing ,An Aruba* ************************ E S S 0 (Continued from page 2) Part by 14** L*B* Scott ondvon the
