close to the swimmer to avoid'running

that when the boat struck the swimmer
it was just "free-wheeling". And so
the screams of a woman caused the
swimmer to eesape serious injury by the

WINDRAND IS4NSi OPINION


17 vwoiking the Carlsberg Breweries it should be a constant purpose, regardless 6f
a di. iate profit, to develop the art of making beer to the greatest possible degree
to perfection in order that these breweries may ever assist in keeping beer brewing
I1rn mark on a high and honourable level."

.:"That, ladies and gentlemen, is the motto of the Carlsbery Breweries of Denmark as
.laid down by Christen Jacobsen and his successors J.C. Jacobsen and Carl Jacobsen.

A constant' pioneer and leader in the field of producing better beer and brewing methods
sinoe 1811, Carlsbery is now known as one of the leading pilsner beers in Europe and
the world.

Friends, be a judge of your own taste, allow yourself to enjoy the flavour of a mild
and mature beev.

.And, speaking of tonics, it should hardly be necessary. to remind you that there is
none to beat Carlbery VIKING TONIC.

CALaERY BEER and VIKING MALT TONIC are available in standard size bottles or in
Su abb ie 8s

Pick up your oases at the Philipsburg Printshop & Trading Co. N.V. Backstreet 246, or
look out for our saleman and place your orders.

And don't forget to save your Carlsberg stoppers they are of value.

The boy was called to the Polioe: station and was given a strong reprimand for his conduct, Sept. 28. 1963: A> woman from CUl-de-Sao, reported to the Police that the driver of a jeep had struck one of her sheep with the jeep on the CuL-de-Sac road and had broken one of its legs. She wanted payment for the sheep. The driver was questioned on the matter and explained that a number of sheep ware grazing on the left side of the road and at the moment when he was about'to passj one of the sheep suddenly ran aorces the road and was struck by the jeep He declared that he was not willing to pay for the sheep, since in his opinion he had no fault.
