WHEFE LR; GOLD ,ND PRFCI OUS GEMS FOUND??

By Bros Simmn Jeffry
---:*---*

WIo don't have to enroll in a course in mineralogy
to loarn thct gold and precious gems are not often
fonLd on the surface. Yet in the study of the Bible
most people dislike to dig beneath the surface and
therefore they dony themsleves the joy of finding
the hidden treasures.
Jesus said in the book of John 5s39 Search the '
scriptures for in them ye think ye have eternal life,
they are they which testify of me,
How can you know Jesus without searching for Him?'
Whenever you speak of studying the Bible much of our-
day Christians tell yous'"Trust God, but do not trace
Him", which means to say, the Bible must not be
studied; that work is only pertaining to the priest
or minister
That is not true, when Jesus otr blessed Bideemer
told us to search the scriptures, He meant to search
dilligontly until you find the precious treasure '
Jesus was not speaking to the priest or minister only;
but to all, every one who is willing and would devote
themselves to the study of His word.
There was once in this Island when the followers
of tho Clergy were forbidden to read the Bible giving
for reason the Bible is a bad book and cannot be
understood by the ordinary people Ihen their authority
was questioned, their answer was the Bible is eanF

TO BE STUDIED by Prelates who only are
capable to translate the scriptures because
they are qualified; they have spent mapy
years on the Theological benches and have
rooeived their priesthood ordination.
But friends yonast not be mistaken. You
will not find Jesus on the Thoological
benches only Read what the scriptures say
about that's
lo The scriptures is of not private in-
torpretation*
2o Any prayerful man or woman is able
with the aid of the Spirit of prophesy to
understand the word of God.
o The promise is given from the holy
Bible that the holy Spirit of God will lead
you into'all truths
4o The testimony of Jesus Christ is
the Spirit of Prophesy written by the Pro-
phetess, E.G, Thito.
S 5o Isaiah 8t20 Roadss To the law and
the testimony; if they do not speak accord-
ing to this word It is because there is no
light in theme -
Now dear reader there is no church under
heaven that has the spirit of prophesy but
the Seventh Day /vientist Church. Without
the aid of the Spirit of prophesy you can-
not understand the Bible correctly, one
goes with the other. The Bible is a complete
book but the Spirit of Prophesy gives you
in detail what the Bible have in a condensed
form*
For the sake of true knowledge and the
hope of salvation seek the books of the
Spirit of Prophesy. May God help you so to
do.

POLITIC IN THE
WINDWARD ISLANDS
*^
The political campaign and election of May 31, 1963 are now behind our 'Al(
ever there is maoh talks and speculations as to what will take place as a re
past election.
-In St. Eustatius, Mr. Vincent Lopes and his party "SWEEP" have ocme out "1an
getting 3 of the five seats. This gives the "WSEEP" a complete majority and.
to elect the two Deputies of St. Eustatius Woodloy who'formerly headed the
Party at St. Eustatius and who in 1962 became a Democrat, hoadod the eP. litJi4
and his party got 2 seats. Tho big questions in the minds of most political I
areas IHAT WILL HAPPEN TO STrJTIA NOW? 77 ILL THE DEgCC RPTIC PARTY CONTINUE TO
PEOPLE' OF THATT I-L.ND?? .
Well, according to us; with a NATIONCNL victory'at Curacao, the Demooratio Pe
on its way "out" and therofore in a short while will nct be in a position to
the people of Statia.

-In Saba, the Voters have demonstrated that they are fed-up with the adminis"t
of M. Levenstone and L. .nslijn The S.P.P. headed by Granger got the majodiV0
votes (208) and two seats in the now Gouncil T.T.D.P. headed by Nioholscm andi
campaigned against the administration of Deputies, Levenstone and AnsUlin gob
;Jlmost everyone expected that Nicholson would have joined with the Se.P*P.
end to the Lovonstone/Anslijn administration. This however did not happen,
Nicholson has agreed to work with Lovenstono and Anslijn, thereby putting thes=i
"saddle".
According to' reports, Nicholson's action has boen a groat disappointatnt tb -I
his supporters, and this could well mean the ond of his political career.

-In St. Maarten thero has boon some surprises.
First and foremost among the surprises is the fact that Wallaco failed'in
tempt to prevent the Nationals from maintaining their seat in the Council, A.e"
reports and certain statements made it was appcLrzmx the apparent irdention
to take away sufficient vctes from the National Party to pr event them fr4:4
seat, however not sufficient for his list to get a seat. If hh had boon *@>
the D.P. would-have gotten all five seats*
Another surprise was the amount cf votes which two newcomers (Charlie V3A
Lake) were able to got against their names Charlie Vlaun as No. 8 on the
got 120 votes and was elected by preferential votes Jose Lake as Noe 3 on
list got 66 votes; even though this was the highest amount of votes reivewd
the candidates on the National list (the No. 1, candidate, L.B. Scott got S
Lake needed 7 more votes to be elected by preferential votes.
-According to rumours, Claude Wathey is dissatisfied about the aaoub of v
Vlaun got. Ictz*axxxxxa Nxfta3iax There are many who believes, that bIw(
sees Charlie as a threat to his (Claude's) political popularity TheroA,
now going around town that Charlie will not be elected Deputy by the xW
however should not be taken too seriously because the voters have (by
expressed their confidence in Charlie who has boon Deputy of Publio
eight months, and we cannot see how Claude can "shut" him "out"; as
strong aupportors khae been predicting.
For those who may have been wondering what L.-B. Soott intends to
seat in the Council, well, he has deooided to "hold ona"t it.
There is ma h mo re in the looal political world, but, so aeB h for
aot sext week.

NEGRO EDUCATOR SAYS VIOLENCE MAY COE IN
RACIAL STRUGGLE

A leading US. Negro educator soberly
warned recently that the current racial
strife will explode into &rAout violence-
including "wholesale killing of people"-
in less than a year unless Congress and
the President takb immediate action*
James A. Nabrit,; Jre, president of
Howard University, a leading colored
university in the States, said in an
interview recently that nationwide
violence will be unavoidable unless at
least two of three steps are taken
1- "Amajor statement from the Presi-
dent throwing the weight of bie office
behind the rights of the Negro to first-
class citizenshipe"
2- Passing a Fair Employment Practices
Aot4
3- Passing a Civil Rights Alt covering
housing, education and public accnmmida-
tioens
"Anything else," Nabrit declared em-
phatically, "will be nothing but a ges-
ture and will not moan much to the Ne-
gro.l -
Nabrit also stated that "I have come.
to the conclusion that there id no dis-
position on the part of anybody (white
officials) in the U.S. to sclve the ra-
cial problem.
"They just do what they are ccmpelled
to do, not because they think it is
right but because they find it expedient,
politically profitable.".

Problems Where to Put Yanks Visiting -
Britain

Chelwood Gate, England (AP)- This quiet
corner of Englan wondered earlier this
week where to put all those visitors
when President Kennedy and his party ar-
rive later this month.
It will be the biggest influx of visft-
ors seen here since the 16th Century,
when Henry VIII used to go hunting and
courting in these parts*
The President is assured of a bed as
'indeed Henry always was. But for 110 mei
bers of Kennedy's party the prop..ot are
not so bright "
