-aii la wapg aa 6.n the goerni '
SJ: 's ffdds *here during" he past
oThese offioea.s; ast.inug "with
o (i ror' 6 o~fioe and -qqding with
thtt Polioe nation, have. aL been re-
o0Vatebd'ald reaodeled (In .afm cases
They have alsg been air-ooQ4itioned).
These improvements have oerbainly in.
proved working onditions fPr the em-
ployees who work at these offices.
The..only exceptions hobmeIr,.are the
Post Office and the Receiv.r's Office,
both located on the first floor of the
Court-house building. These two off ies
are the same today as they were twert y
years ago.
When we consider hoe hard the em-
plQyees of these two offices (especially
the Post Office) work, and the wonder-
ful job they do of serving the publ1a.
Wh are forced to ask the Authorities.
"Why hasn't something been done to im-
these offices and thereby the working
conditions of a group, of government em-
ployees who really do a good job?"
It is a public secret in our canmunity
that the employees.-of the Post Office,
in an effort to make sure that mails
are distributed as soon as possible,
ofteh oA several extra house, (with-
out overtime pay); assorting and dis-
tributing mails.
It is our opinion that these offices
should also be renovated (on the inside:
and air-conditioned. We therefore make
a strong appeal to the Authorities to
do something about improving the in-
terior of these offices soon.


PLEA3E DO NOT SPOIL THE GOOD N.Hi OF
WST. MAARTEN.

A great majority of the tourists who
visited the island aboard the M.V.
Gripsholm on Sunday were satisfied and
favourably impressed. There have however
been one or two unfavourable reports,
Which caused a little dissatisfaction.
These reports were all against taxi-
drivers who tried to take advantage of
Sthe situation.
W were told of a taxi-driver who
Soi-rg6d a tourist #5..- I.S. for a trip
to Little Day Hotel ( the fare is
Fla. 1.60 or 0,80O U,8.) This in our
opinion s. a burning shuae and should

WINDWARD ISLANDS' OPINION "In working the Carlsberg Breweries it should "be a constant purpose, regardless of immediate profit, to develop the art of making beer to the greatest possible degree of perfeotion in order that these breweries may ever assist in keeping beer brewing in Denmark on a high and honourable level." That, ladies and gentlemen, is the motto of the Carlsbery Breweries of Denmark as laid down by Christen Jaoobsen and his successors J.C. Jacobsen and Carl Jaoobsen. A constantpioneer and leader in the field of producing better beer and brewing method! 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 tote, allow yourself to enjoy the flavour of a mild and mature bee. And, speaking of tonios, it should hardly be necessary to remind you that there is none to beat Carlbery VIKING TONIC, CARLSBERY BEER and VIKING MALT TONIC are available in standard size bottles or in stubbies.

The warning was voioed in an article published in the monthly magazine of the Airline pilots Association. It was written by a Captain of Pan American World Airways. It said bluntly that flying and smoking don't mix. The article said in numerous surveys the possible relationship of cigarette smoking to lungcancer has been established, but also quoted from other studies whioh showed that smoking can effect the pilot's flying ability. %  For instance nicotine in the pilot' s syarfcem, raises his body oxygen r<&quiment as much as IB % A pilot that smokes a pack a day adds about 8000 feet to his-actual altitude.

General assembly Monday past a draft declaration on the elimjn tion of all forms of racial discrimination. There were 89 votes in favour and none in opposition to the draft declaration. But, the tipped for unanimity was not achieved when 17 nations, those that alight rougitly be termed, western nations abstained. The dr.-ft declar-tioi that still has to 30 before a plenary session of the assembly for final approval, siad in its first article that discrimination between hum-rn beings onthe grounds of race, colour or ethnic origin, is an of'ense to human dignity. And shall be enfidemned as"":.. denial of the principles of the charter of the U nited Nations. And as a violation of the human rights and foundamental freedom proclaimed in the Univesal Declaration of Human Rights. The other articles are an elaboration of this essential article and deals -with specifio aspects of the question. The 17 abstaining nations did so because of dissatisfaction with one sentence of one artidle. The sentence as past, reads: "IN ORDER TC PUT INTO EFFECT THE PURPOSES AND PRINCIPLES OF THIS DECLARATION. ALL STATES SHALL TAKE IMMEDIATE AND POSITIVE MEASURES, INCLUDING LEGISLATION AND OTHEE MEASURES TO PROSECUTE 4ND OR OUTLAW ORGANIZATIONS WHICH PROMOTE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION, OR INSITE TO OR USE VIOLENCE FOR THE PURPOSE OF DISCRIMINATION BASED ON RACE, COLOUR OR ETHNIC ORIGIN." The abstaining nations'maintained that the sentence in question, particularly the word p romot e violates such other human rights as, freedom of speech, and freodem of association. They said that one right should not be saorifioed for another. The western nations that abstained said at the beginning of a long and extremely complicated debate, that they were prepared to accept the draft declaration as presented to the Committee by the Canmission of Human Rights. But thoy found that this one ammendment was not acceptable. The United States was among the abstaining nations. **************** ******* ************************#„,*** FOR SALE One 1961 Hillman "Husky" in A 1 condition 4 new tires new battery & new radio.

WINDWAFD ISLANDS 1 OPINION SATURDAY NOV. 2, 1963 the improvements made on the government's offices here during the past months These offices; starting with the Governor's office and ending with the Police Station, have all been renovated and remodeled (in-sons cases they have also been air-oonditioned). These improvements have certainly improved working conditions fpr the employees who work at these offices. The. only exceptions howqver, are the Post Off ice and the Receiver's Office both located on the first floor of the Court-house building. These too offices are the same today as they were twenty years ago. When we consider how hard the employees of these two offices (especially the Post Office) work, and the wonderful job they do of serving the public. We are foroed to ask the Authorities. Why hasn't something been done to imthese offices and thereby the working conditions of a group, of government employees who really do a good job?" It is a public secret in our community that the employees-of the Post Office in an effort to make sure that mails are distributed as soon as possible often work several extra hours, (without overtime pay) assorting and distributing mails. It is our opinion that those offices snould also be renovated (on the inside) and air-conditioned. We therefore make a strong appeal to the Authorities to do something about improving the interior of these offices soon. PLEASE DO NOT SPOIL THE GOOD NJWS OF ST. MAARTBN A great majority of the tourists who visited the island aboard the H.V.Gripsholm on Sunday were satisfied and lavourabl^ impressed. There have however been one or two unfavourable reports which caused a little dissatisfaction. •These reports were all against taxidrivers who tried to take advantage of the situation. We were told of a taxi-driver who charged a tourist $5.~ I.S. for a trip to Little 8 % y Hotel ( the fare is Fls._l.50 or $0.80 U.S.) This in our opinion 1a burning shame and should "over happen again. kHO" that the St. Maarten Tourist 43 beans in every oup ... N E 3 C A F E Bureau is doing a great deal"to"encoura. e and promote tourism on this island and it would be a terrible thing to allow one or two greedy taxi-drivers to spoil things not • only for themselves, but fo'r the whole island. Because of this we would like to suggest that a special loaf let, containing the taxi fares and maybe a short message from the Tourist Bureau be made and Be distributed (on the wharf) to tourists from aboard future cruise s hips. To the greedy taxi-drivers would like to sayj PLEASE CHARGE THE CORRECT FARES AT ALL TIMES PLEASE DO NOT SPOIL THE'GOOD NAME OF ST. MAARTEN. ***************** LIGHTS AT MIDDLE REGION, DEFIANCE AND UPPER PRINCE' S QUAfrTEfi On Saturday last the lights went on at Middle Region, Defiance and a seotion of Upper Prince's Quarter.
