FISH SHOULD BE SOLD IN THE FISHMb4UM

For scnetime now our fishmen have
4 adopted the bad habit of selling their
fish on the ground at the "head" of
"APOTHEEKSTEEG" better known-as the
"Fish Alley".
This bad habit should be discouraged
by the authorities, because it can
easily give the wrong impression to
visitors -It is also (in our opinion)
not sanitary to have fish lying on the
ground.
Another factor which should be taken
into consideration is the faot that in
the immediate vicinity where our li6-
men have chosen to-sell their: fih '
located two of our most moderns sta er
a modem liquor shcV, and a mot adea~a

DQOINICAN SOUP STRfS NB!W TBWIWO :"T CIBBl
Overthrow of Demoordtio Regime COffrs N w Oppor"
tunities for Castro and Deals Str~og Blow to
U.S. Alliance for Progress


S biigaton, Sept. 28, N.Y.T.,- In the
J..U lness to the tropical dawn Tednesday,
a ,iaperiment:in demooratio social re-
|:i ttolu n of crucial importance to the
^(i srn Heaisphere quietly died in the
laieent Caribbean city of-Santo Damingoe
Its death came when a group of Domini.
-aa gi nrals and colonels, acting as the
bt-'.b ring ram for a motley collection of
S~bitiotus Rightist pblitioians and dis-
i Satled businessmen, ousted President
im.an D. Bosch after seven months in his
i "eleotive office.
I ~e.e ffeotts
The bloodless revolution, described by
its leaders as the road to the creation
7a "Rightist state" in the Dominican
bp Ublio, produced three simultaneous
a d highly negative effects on three
S'different but intimately related levels.
These oan be defined in this ways
(1) On the national level, it set back
Sthe Dominioan Republio politically to
where if" stood in May 1961, when tho old
Sdiotator, IBfael Leonidas Trujillo Moli-
S s, was assassinated after 31 years in
power. Booially and economically, it
impped in the bud the once bright pro-
,.a of demooratio reform.
S() On the regional level, it removed
Sfrme the Caribbean what may have emerged
|:U the pivot of stability in that des-
Sperately troubled area.
S() On the homispherio level, it dealt
bthe'Allianoe for Progress the most des-
|iir.otive body blow it had suffered in
~Its short and urnertain life.
S Shook ed RBe aot ion
The shook and the sense of gloom that
VP*.t anti-Bosoh coup set off in Washing-
.il and in many Latir-Amerioan capitals
)Mted from the realization that the
of the Daoinigan military had
far to compromise the cardinal
iple of the Alliance. That prinoi-
is that economio.and social develop-
SIs possible within the framework of
rwatio freedoms.
0,IX the hesispheri9 sense, the Bosch
was partoularly painful because;
to the Kennedy Administration,
an pBpublio had loomed as the
y to prove in contrast

the ruins of. an oppreeive diotator-
ship.
But if the reaction in this broad;
hemispheric context was thus basically
-philosophical and ideological, in the
more immediate Caribbean terms it pre-
saged arf even greater unrest and quite
probably, a"hefty assist to the cause
of Cuba's Premier Fidel Castro.
Breeding Ground
More than any other area in Latin
America and in a sense resembling
the pro-war condition of the Balkans
in Europe -.the Caribbean region has
been a breeding ground for revolutions,
war and general agitation. sine w en
before its republics gained their irn
dependence in the 19th penturye
In the recent past, these political
storms have been born over the Carit-
bean to lash out at the rest of the
hemisphere. Pranier Castro's initial
Cubao-Caribbean revolution has deeply
affected the Inited States and Latin
America .nearly leading, in fact, to
a nuclear world war'less than a year
ago. In another way, the Dominican den
moo ratic experiment was intended to
serve as an',inspiring example to the
whole continrit; and its sudden collapse
has cast a pall over the future of the
Alliance for Progress. '
Under the'oircumstanoe, everything that
happens in the Caribbean and iA its
political components has'an immediate
and drastic inpaot on the rest bf the'
hemisphere It is in this light; then
that the present tension in the Carib-
bean must be seen.
Widen n in-g E f f ot s
At the time President Bosch was being
ousted, the'-ribbean was going through
one of its mit agitated periods in his-
tory, But no -single, all-embracing diag-
nosis .oould..e offered in explanation aof
this state qf affairs. It was, rather;
the combination of all the old pressrres
of political maturity, economic inae-
quoy, sooitX protest, and the pe~po4laiy
volatile Cawbbean temperaient boDi fran

mainstream of the Communist movement.
The Soviet-Chinese split and the detente
between the Thited States and the Soviet
Uhion abruptly forced Prlier Castro in-
to a'neutral position in the Communist
oont rove rsy
Befusing to sign the partial nuclear
test ban treaty, to go along with the-
Soviet concept of coexistence and"to re-
consider his advocacy of violent revolu-
tion, which Moscow now opposes, Dr.
Castro busied himself encouraging the
so-called Chinese revolutionary position
in Latin America. As his power among the
Soviet-oriented Cammunist parties in the
hemisphere began to wane, he conceitrat-
ed on Venezuela, where Leftist terror-_
ists were attempting to force a military
coup d'etat, hoping that it would rally
that country behind an extremist,
"patriotic" revolution.

when his revolutionary economy is limp-
ing badly and required a drastic return
to dependence on sugar* But this week's
Dominican military coup seemed to-offer
Cuba new opportunities in a country much
closer to her shores than Venezuela.
Dominica generals may well have done
Dr. Castro's work for him, and chances
are he will capitalize on the new dio-

Food and water and also a shelter (he
living in what they call a tent; but
uad't see where it is a tent; it more
like a pieoe of rag hold up with a
). From 1960 the 4th. of September
pa took his little house that he
and never one day did our Adminis-
tion saw any thing wrong with this
ld man living under a piece of rage
BHe as in the hospital for a couple of
S and they put him out of the hos-
S(a government hospital) because he
too muoh trouble.
.;o the poor fellow had no way-to go
to return to his rag. He could
other go in or come out, so he stayed
-side of it; rain came wet him, sun
burn him until the Lord made peace
his soul.
Sto tell you the truth my friends

this island, it was indeed an int4ell-

And our agents Mr. KeTHEf and Mr.
-COTT had vowed to aot quite up-toa

regardless 'to race, creed or position*
To be truthful in the beginning it
was marvelous. At that time the manoiu-
vring of the truck drivers and dealers
of kerosene had left us with plenty
confidence ithat this would have ocn-
tinued.
In every. corner of the island the in-
habitants of the poor classes had grouped
up, so that they would be able to, buy a
tank of kerosene within them, just to
ameliorate the situation.
But since these trucks drivers have
gotten plenty of clients and much popu-
larity, they are. acting with the kero-
sene as the fishmen are acting with their
fish on the bay-side only selling to
whom and frca whcm great honour, and
applause esist. They think it hard to
unroll their kerosene hose as to sell
to certain people? with the money in
their hand. They only keep fooling them
upon promises today, and by-passing than
tomorrow. We are sure that these drivers
are monthly paid men and just don't :are,

which we can help our Government in
Reaching its goal in Tourism.
These are the things we would achieve

MILD TC YCUR HANDS mainstream of the Communist movement. The Soviet-Chinese split and the detente between the Uhitod States and the Soviet Union abruptly forced Praaier Castro into a "neutral position in the Communist controversy. Refusing to sign the partial nuclear test ban treaty, to go along with the" Soviet concept of coexistence and"to reconsider his advocacy of violent revolution, which Moscow now opposes, Dr. Castro busied himself encouraging the so-called Chinese revolutionary position in Latin America. As his power among the Soviet-oriented Communist parties in the hemisphere began to wane, he concentrated on Venezuela, where Leftist terror-" ists were attempting to force a military coup d'etat, hoping that it would rally that country behind an extremist, "patriotic" revolution. Possib-le Re* actions The failure, thus far, of this operation has tarnished further Premier Castro's image at home and abroad at a time EVIN RUDE means SERVICE when his revolutionary economy is limping badly and required a drastic return to dependence on sugar. But this week's Dominican military coup seemed to offer Cuba new opportunities in a country much oloser to her shores than Venezuela. Dominican generals may well have done Dr. Castro's work for him, and chances are ho will capitalize on the new dictatorship next door. The theory that military coups tend to benefit Communism or Castroism applies elsewhere in the Caribbean as it did in Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Guatemala has been under military rule sinoe last April. And the Dominican ooup inciediately raised the fear that it Night be imitated in Venezuela Honduras and El Salvador.

Scribbled on this letter in pencil, whioh writing the Inspector alleged to be Hunte 1 s were these observations* "She is hit by two %  omen and one is younger than the other with big breasts, fine incident is buried in the yard in a little pasteboard box." Another letter read by Inspector alleged to have been Written'by Alfred Clarke of San Nicolas, Aruba, states: n You must send the ccr.mission wrapped up in newspaper for these postmasters like to search too much, Mr. Hunte, you know you can help me. Why you have me punishing so? I need help to get a job. Please help me, Mr. Hunte*" A letter to the accused,' Hunte, from one Marie Adams of Ma rig ot, states* "Nothing happens before its time. He does lose maney in tickets. He is nice and I can see he loves me and he does give me anything I want. But is, one thing, I want to get him out of that woman in St. Thomas, for I feel he does give her a lot of his money." Several other letters were read -One from a woman who wanted her boy friend released from the clutches of some other woman, still another woman is alleged to be in great distress as her intended husband seemed to want to make escape from marriage. **************** FBQM QUE SABA CORRESPONDENT On September 17,'1963, a new mayor of police, Mr. Clamer, came to Saba, to take the place of Mr. Faydherbe, who had to leave this island on account" of a serious illness of his wife in Curacao. Most probably Mr. Clamer has to" stay for two years in Saba He has worked many years in Aruba and is an all^ round policeman with much experience. Tfe weloome him most heartily in our midst and we hope that he'll have a good and-pleasant time here. Ife also do hope, for our own sake; that he'll have a quiet time in Saba, without any serious cases. **************** On Wednesday morning about 9*30 a jeep of a friend was parked in front of the home .of Mr. Milton Johnson, Islandcoundil member, at the Windward Side Bis two little sons, Milton, Jr. 4, and Harry 2 were sitting in the jeep. It is believed that one of the childrend released the" hand-brakes and the jeep which was parked on a decline started moving; the eldest brother jumped out, but the younger one was thrown out and pinned between the front wheel of the jeep and a wall The screams of Mrs. Johnqon, caused Milton to rush to the scene and when he saw his son pinned between the jeep and wall he ran to the jeep and lifted the front end at the same time asking an old man who was nearby to pull out the boy slowly In this manner Harry was removed from under the jeep He suffered a broken right leg and minor bruises. He was taken to St. Maarten the same afternoon by plane for further medical oare Mr. Johnson told our reporter that he had full cooperation from the government in getting his child to Sfc. Maarten. V LETTER! TO THE EDITOR (Not the responsibility of the Editor) Dear Mr. Editor* WATER SPORT?? OR DANGEROUS DRIVING?? Watersp ort is a fine thing it builds the body and is also great funJ It is N QT funny however, when this beoomes dangerous to other people who also would like to enjoy the sea. And if you haven't guessed it yet I mean the UTTERLY IRRESPONSIBLE way in which the young set" is WATERSKIING in Philipsburg harbourl It is positively no enjoyment any more to go swimming in Great Bay, not even bathing. Motorboats with their attached skiers are coming so close to the shore that even small ohildren ar in danger of being hit ONE OP THESE DAYS, — UNLESS something is done to prevent the waterskiing youngsters, (and some others who are well up in the twenties, and should know better) of coming too close inshore.

This bad habit should be discouraged by the authorities, because it oan easily give the wrong impression to visitors It is also (in our opinion) not sanitary to have fish lying on the ground. Another factor which should be taken into consideration is the fact that in the immediate vicinity where our fishmen have ohosen to sell their fish are' located; two of our most modern stores" a modem liquor shop, and a modem and up-to-date snack bar and cold storage* We might have been able to allow this undesirable condition to continue unmentioned if our f ishmen'had no other place to seel their fish, but, this is not the case, because, the government has built a fish-market' at the "end" of the "Fish Alley" And in our opinion

WINDWARD ISLANDS' OPINION • SATURDAY XT. 5. 1965 waterskiing, or even fast motorboating within this line(except of course tocome to the shore or leaving from it %  which also should be marked off), much sorrow may lae prevented. Let the authorities please do something about this, and not after scmeonels ohild has been seriously hurt, or even killed, for then it would be closing the stable door after the horse has gone, A. Swimmer and Father Dear Editor; Please mention this in your well known paper for a friend: On Sunday the 29th. of September an old fellow by the name of Pierre well known as "Fab" lay a corpse for the "want of food and water and also a shelter (he was living in what they oall a tent, but I don't see where it is a tent; it more lock like "a pieoe of rag hold up with a Stick). From 1960 the 4th. of September "Donna" took his little house that he had and never one day did our Administration saw any thing wrong with this old man living under a piece of rag* He was in the hospital for a cruple of weeks, and they put him out of the hospital (a government hospital) because he was too much trouble. So the poor fellow had no way to go but to return to his rag.'He could niether go in or come out, so he stayed just side of it; rain come wot him, sun shone burn him until the Lord mado'peace with his scul. And to tell you the truth my friends he was buried in a raw coffin. At least they oould have buy a tin of black paint to paint* it with. This would have looked much better. This could happen to most many of us too if we don't watch outcose, for the poor don't have no more break on the French Side, "Soby" Marigot Dear Mr, Editor; You are kindly asked, to publish in your paper the following: L I B B Y i S Milk, read & save the'label It might sound to certain readers a little radioulous, but it is the truth. mien the two highly established oaapanies, SHELL and ESSO inaugurated the installment' of the kerosene storage on this island, it wa3 indeed an intelligent act,,,,,. And our agents Mr, WATHEY and Mr. XOTT had vowed to aot quite up-todate with their clients on the island, regardless to race, creed or position. To be truthful in the beginning it was marvelous. At that time the manoeuvring of the truok drivers and dealers of kerosene had left us with plenty confidence ,that this would have continued. In every corner of the island the inhabitants of the poor olasses had grouped up, so that they would be able to, buy a tank of kerosene within them, just to ameliorate the situation. But since thes trucks drivers have gotten plenty of clients and much popularity, they are. acting with the kero" sene as the fishmen are acting with their fish on the bay-side only selling to whom and frcm whom great honour, and applause exist. They think it hard to unroll their kerosene hose as to sell to certain people with the money in their hand. They only keep fooling them upon promises today, and by-passing than tomorrow. We are sure that these drivers are monthly paid men and just don't care, are asking the agents of these trucks that are selling kerosene to oheck and kindly'try to deal with the public service similar to; Curacao and Aruba. We are appealing to Mr. '.fathey and Mr. Scott, with confidence that we will get better service, A Frenchman Marigot AN APPEAL TO THE PUBLIC We the C^miwal Committee are now appealing Q the public of St. Maarten, to support us in bringing off our first Carnival here in St, Maarten, This Oiunival is an experiment in order to achieve something that is much more important than just a Carnival, We would try to impart to you all the significance of this experiment. l-.lf we try now to get a Carnival oelebration started on our island with the support of the people, we would be moving with the tides of our island economically. *-i_

•^r-wmtimr — wTNDWARD ISLANDS' OPINION A SATURDAY OCT. 5,. 1963 this market is big enough to acoommodate our fishmen we can therefore see no justification for the above mentioned bad habit* Earlier this week in an attempt to find out if the" fishmen thought" something was wrong with the market our Editor asked on of the fishmen who was selling his fish on the ground at the "head" of the "Fish Alley" what was wrong with the fish-marketi He replied! "Nothing" Our Editor him, why then, was he selling his fish at the "head" of* the "Pish Alley" instead of in the market. He replied* "Mr. Lake, if I go in the market, the fishmen who are at the "head" of the alley will. %  — sell all of their fish dndj I will not be able to sell any of my fish until theirs are finished." He went on to explain that when the first group of fishermen reach in they take theiij fish to the "head" of the alley and all who come afterwards have to do the same thing in order to sell. It is our opinion that fish should be sold in the fish-market and not on the ground at the "head" of the "Fish Alley"; 1 %  we are therefore appealing to the authorities to look into this matter and put an end to this undesirable practice. YOU HAVE TO DO BETTER S.L. HORSFORD & C o, Ltd Earlier this week while making one of our routine checks on the wharf in Philipsburg we were shocked by the sight of a shipmen of flour on the wharf Most of the bags were badly damaged and even though it appeared that they had been sown in certain places; they were still torn in others the bags which were not damaged had apparently been in stock for suoh a*" long time that one side was as hard as cement In' short it was a most horrible sight, which easily gave the impression that, this flour was shipped to the owner of a large pig farm, f or the purpose of feeding his Pigs. Knowing that there are no saoh farms on our beautiful island we investigated the matter a little further and discoverSI.

WINDWAH) I SUNOS' OPINION 4 SATURDAY OCT. 5.1963 DOMINICAN COUP STIES NEW TEN8ION DJ CARIBBEAN Overthrow of Democratic Regime Offers New Opportunities for Castro and Deals Strong Blow to U. S. Allianoe for Progress Washington, Sept. 28, N.Y.T. iIn the stillness of the tropioal dawn Wednesday, an experiment in democratic social revolution of crucial impcrbanoe to the Western Hemisphere quietly died in the ancient Caribbean city of "Santo Domingo* Its death came when a group of Dominic oan generals and'oolonels, acting as the battering ram for a motley collection of ambitious Rightist politicians and disgruntled businessmen, ousted President Juan D. Bosch after seven months in his elective office. Three Effects The bloodless revolution, described by its leaders as the road to the oroation of a "Rightist state" in the Dominican Bepublio, produced three simultaneous and highly negative effects on three different but intimately related levels. These can be defined in this way: (l) On the national level, it set back the Dominican Republic politically to where it'stood in May 1961, when tho old diotator, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina, was assassinated after 31 years in power. Socially and economically, it nipped in the bud the once bright promise of democratic reform. "(2) On the regional level, it removed from the Caribbean what may have emerged as the pivot of stalility in that desperately troubled area, (3) On the homisp'herio level, it dealt the Alliance for Progress the most destructive body blc it had suffered in its short and uncertain life. Shocked Beacti o n The shook and the sense of gloom thxt the anti-Bosch coup set off in Washington and in many Latin-Amerioan capitals stenaed from the realization that tho aotion of the Dominioan military had gone far to ocmpromise the cardinal prinoiple of the Alliance, That principle is that eoonomio and social development is possible within the frame-work of demooratio freedoms. In the hemispheri9 sense, the Bosch upset was particularly painful becauseJ at least to the Kennedy Administration, the Dominican Republio had loomed as the golden opportunity to prove in oontrast to neighboring Communist Cuba that a progressive demoo rao'y could be built on the ruins of an oppresive dictatorship. • But if the reaotion in this broad; hemispheric context was thus basically philosophical and ideological, in the more immediate Caribbean terms it presaged an? even greater unrest and quite probably, a'hefty assist to the cause of Cuba's Premier Fidel Castro, Breeding Ground More than any other area in Latin America and in a sense resembling the pre-war condition of the Balkans in Europe the Caribbean region has been a breeding ground for revolutions, war and general agitation since rrren before its republics gained their independence in the 19th century. In the reoent past, these political storms have been born over the Carife" bean to lash out at tho rest of the hemisphere. Premier Castro's initial Cuban-Caribbean revolution has deeply affected the United States and Latin America nearly leading, in faot, to a nuclear world war'less than a year ago. In another way, the Dominican da* moc ratio experiment was intended to serve as an:-inspiring example to the whole continent; and its sudden oollapse has cast a pall over the future of the Allianoe for Progress* Under the'circumstance, everything that happens in the Caribbean and ijfc its political components has"an immediate and drastic Jmpaot on the rest of the' hemisphere^ It is in this light, then, that tho present tension in the Caribbean must be seen. Widening Effects At the time President Bosoh was being ousted, the'-Caribbean was going through one of its m^st agitated periods in history. But no-single, all-embracing diagnosis oould 'be offered in explanation'of this state of affairs. It was, rather; the combination of "all the old pressures of political immaturity, eoonomio inadequacy, social protest, and the peoulaflly volatile Caribbean temperament born frcra the crisscrossing of cultures and raoes and the stimulus of the revolutibnary age For all the practical purposes, the Caribbean as a geopolitical oonoeptobuld no longer be restricted to'its angry islands in the sun. Nowadays, the
