J, "Chick" Arrindell of Belle Plaine.was a^ at stake Garibair of Maggot had already accomplished what at the atart of the series aeemed impossible, by winning the. two first games, and thanks to the energetio chairman of the Baseball Committee Mr. ..J. "Chick* Arrindell and his oolleaguea a great deal of'publio interest was. aroused, (&e C A H I.B AIR page 4) •%  :•• & H.RH PRI RCESS IbME AND H.B.H* PRINCESS MABGRIET IN THE wTHDIUBD ISLAN DS H.K.H. Princess Irene and H.B,H. Princess Margrtet arrived here by K.L.M. on Ifcdnesday last on an official visit "to the Ittndward Islands. At about-lli3o a.m. the crowd started gathering at the Juliana airport and at about noon there were hundreds of people on hand to walocme the Princess. At cout the same-time, the school-children, the Methodist Boys' Brigade, Boy Scots members of the P.M.f.A. and O.B.I.A. as well as hundreds of other people were o 7^7J*J£ fr0Qt f tteCour H XOU80 in PhiUpsburg.

WINDWARD ISLANDS' OPINICfL SATURDAY JULY 21. 1962 a oopy of theabovemsntioneddertiBlon has not been received and that the amount of f*~ 271,84 has been booked to : the island budget pf Saba for 19o*2* The Auditing Board is of the opinion that due to thVoiroumstanoes under whioh the Gloria was shipwrecked no oosts oan be booked to the island budget* "Repeatedly the Auditing Board has drawn the attention of the."Exeoutive Counoil ooncerning the improving of the quality of officials in the offices of the Island government* No improvement has been noted* The Auditing Board must note thay have seen" and" heard from others that in the governor* s offioe at St* Maarten of just one or two persons oan be said that a reasonable amount of work is done* Yet in oheoking the monthly financial*pieces repeatedly it*is noted that diffirent officials there are collecting for overtime 1 Contrary to par* 4 of article 12& of' the Island Regulations since 1958 until and including 1962 the budget of tte Wlncfward Islands have not been definitely approved* A bill was written" out to oblleot f* 3027^59 paid government workmen for repairs of"the Gloria, which amount should be returned* Nothing has been paid on this up to the time this report was written* "The note8 made concerning the administration of' the government warehouses were so'brief that this oan hardly be considered an administration^ etc. etc." A very long report, wnich due to space we oannot completely publish; "was written oonoerning the Windward Islinds* It was indeed"far from"flattering, as is easily seen frcm the abovementioned exoerpts* The attempt of the Lt* Governor to defend" the situation was a poor and feeble effort"of which no Windward-Islander oan feel proud. In a nutshell, his defence boiled down to thisi "Although the impression could be created by the report that the flnanoial" administration is irresponsible and' bad and oannot stand oritioism, "wo worked hard*" As editor* 8 note I wish* to addi If is not important that you worked hard but that you worked well *For instance", energy used to abuse' public funds and property for personal gain is not so well applied nc matter how hard you worked* It is"rumoured that the Lt* Governor has been promoted 3 times in the short while he has been in the Windward Islands (not yet 3 years). And in the usual n demoora";i6 n wayi Backpay until the day of birth* .•Let all Windward Islanders and especially Sabian take note "of the comment 8 of the Auditing Board*'Sabians oan see thousands of "guilders wasted whilst aooording to reports the grasping deputy and his colleague are horse-whipping the poor of^Sab'a. Is this in order Whave more "for themselves? ft Wb heard too SopatleBufc-ive secretaries now? What are they dding? The report of the accountants will be real interesting later* **************** CARIBAIR (Continued from page 1) It was a bright sunny Sunday afternoon and people frcm every walk of life and every seotion of the island were present at the Sport-field in Harigot It was the largest orowd ever witnessed on the field; about 1800 to 2000 people* The"odds were in favour of Caterpillars to win" and mostpeople (exoept the players of Caribair and a few of their "die-hard"* fans) believed that the'boys from Great Bjy were"going to "bringhome" this gone* Caribair In their first inning c scored tow runs off two hits, one of whioh"a home-run by Ji Ijtnoh Caterpillars then Went to bat with "blood 0 in their eyes,"and determined to win the gome* Before the inning was over the Cat8 were nble'to score 5 runs, it started when Harry C arty "got, base on balls followed by a two-base hit by V* Annioharigo* A two-base hit by J* Illidge caused Carty and Annioharigo to"soore Li Friday and tfl* Forde got bosses on'balls and Edwtfld Vlolenus hit a two-bagger which caused Illidge,"Friday and Forde to so ore The 8star" pitcher of the* Cats,"young and strong M* Cannegietor was able to keep the pilots sooreless for the next three innings and"it was not until in the fifth that Caribair was able tx> add three more runs to the soore bringing the soore 5.-5* But in fche sixth the Heavy Equipment oome book in full foroe"and before'the inning was ended "increased their score by 4 runs Forde and Cannegieter got bases

WINDWARD ISLANDS 1 .. OPIHIflJ SATURDAY JULY 21; 19 62 not a criminal act has 'been committed' against m 'by n Heohoa n However,. "Heohbs" oould be of some assistance in this, by stating in its next issues 1Wftether"the "services" meantar£ the same sort of "services" which Mrs* Blanoa Jbnokheer, wife of the Prime Minister,..has so often renderad; 2* Or whether these" services" are'the same kind of "services" whioh Miss Jewel Wathey, sister of deputy'Claude Wathey; so willingly has rendered to Mr* Hyacinth Conner} 3* Or if it. perhaps means "by "servi*^ the "services" whioh Sam Casseres oannot render and "whioh Jap a Beaujon is always so eager to renderj. "Heches" cannot bo any means have meant by "services" the kind of servioeB whioh have caused so many divorces among democrats^ as in that case "Heohos" would have insulted a very "large portion of Windward Islanders, besides the fact that the writer would'in this last oaso have to face a criminal charge* '*"I therefore patiently await the answer from "Heohos" with an explanation as to whether it means by "services" Immoral acts or just some other service, so that I may determine if I oan lodge a complaint against "Heohos" or not* Thanking you for the spfece allowed I am, deal* sir, Yours. Wallace Peterson,(ex-detective) Philipsburg July 13, 1962, To The Windward Islands' Opinion! Dear Sir; For your "Information Please" this" week 1*11 like very muoh touring forth this question to you, rather its moro like your opinion* As you have lived"in iruba for a long time and have seen baseball in that island* DO YOU THINK THAT A SELECTION OF OUR BOYS FRO! HEi^E IN ST, MAARTEN ST. MARTIN CZN PLAY AGAINST A "AA" *TEiM FROM" ARUBA T Suoh asHoinekens or Zenith or any of the other teams? DO'YOU THINK THE BOYS FROM HERE WOULD HAVE A CHANCE 3D WIN STBH A-TEAM? .1 know that in Aruba there are'very good teams and that they have more experience in baseball than we do* But I feel that with a good selection in my opinion anything could happen* My opinion is that the boys would play better In Aruba because'of the field there being muoh better* Here forexanple the field has plenty of little stones and grass patches; whioh make the ball difioult to field at times* A oouple months ago there was a scout from the U.S.A. assisted by two others from St* Thomas, One of them remarked* "I really don**; kfaow how these boys can field the ball ..< 4 here"." In Aruba*s sport-park the fields/is smooth, 'no holes in the ground to. look"for that unexpected" hop* You'll be able to oolleot the ball much hetterj That's what I mean Dy"having a good chance in beating Aruba* I have seen baseball in other oountries and our"boys have just atf muoh hitting power as any I have seen We have here in St* Maarten good Batting good Pitching and good enough" fielding to*'do anything, I'll like very much for you to print this Mr, Lake and %  also have your opinion on'this issue* Thanking you in advance. Your truly D* Cannegieter* Ed* note!
