When Eric Gairy, the late Chief

Granada, arrived in that-torritory
from the *Little Eight" London con-
ference, he was given a grand welcome
by thousands of .his supporters. Ac-
cording to reports two aged women
lifted Gairy shoulder high and car-
ried'him into the .airport terminal
while the song 'We shall never let
our leader fall, for we love him
the best of all" was sung.
The supporters of the Opposition
Party carried placards, one of which
read Moriey Donr, Treasury Cleanl'"'
And now only the fanatics will not
realize the seriousness of the situa-

but if Uncle Eric is a wise man he
will realize that it is folly for a
defenceless people to violate law

imtUUBD ISLANDS 1 OPINION StfUBDAY JWE.E3. 1962 HOLD TWO FISH BELIEFS Byt Cleon Lyles "The average person will get a great deal out of life if he can always keep two finu beliefs the first is belief in hi mself and the second is belief in others"o This is not always easy* "Know then thyself 11 is advice that has been handed down through the ages* To' do this we must be*fully aware of our capabilities and our limitations No one else can be so aware of these as we areo'It is easy for us to hide these from our selves. Many people are' oapable of doing much mo f'e than they are willing to admit. Certainly we cannot accuse them of being dishonest, but we do know they have not given themselves a ohanoe Especially is this true in the Lord's work. I heard someone say a few days ago, oonoerning the "many Christians in one city 0 "There is an abundance of talent gining to waste." Yet I am sure those who are wasting their talents^are not aware" of it. In some case3 it may have not been called Wtheir attentiono In others there is a'refusal to believe the'faots when presented. Hence no effort is made The person is wise who lives his life so that he can make the most of his oapabilites, yet he must be careful not to destroy his confidence in fruitless efforts to do something for which he is neither fitted nor trained. Th will always lead to fialure 0 Henoe we oan see the necessity o? knowing in what ways we are strong,*in order to make the most of our strength, and still we must know in what way s we are weak so that our*weaknesses will not be allowed to betray uso Belief in oureelves is not based on" idle hopes. It is based on knowing ourselves so well that we know what is possible for us to do and'the oourage to work honestly to do more than might be expected of uso The person who does not believe in himself will never be able to do anything wall* If one has false faith in himself he is doomed to disappointment* To believe in others it is necessary" that we know people.

Mis Editor Sir, Politics is a battle for supremacy, the duculogue and the golden rule are omitted from a political campaign, it has but one object, and that is success To control the antagonists, am' expell the party in power, is the object, consequently a vote is a sacred thing, _ .even if the voter reaches the bureau on a stretcher. You will recall somewhere between Jefferson and Adams, administration election has been won by,a margin of two votes. Consequently, your kind and sympathetic attitude towards the old folks probably made you, your own obstacle in the path of power, and" caused you all to miss the fatted-calf a So in future-, Brother, let your sympathy go out for the old.folks after they cast their vote, not before.

The supporters of the Opposition Party carried placards, one of which road: "Money Done, Treasury Clean!" And now only the fanatics will not realize the seriousness of the situation.
