S tUljs. The. unity of the two parts of
.the Kingdoa reached its olimax on Deoem-
her 15th, 1954, when H.M. Queen Juliana
authorized a new legal order'*hich gave
the right to. both the Netherlands An-
tilles and Surinam to promote their own
interests quite independently. The auto-
nomy of each of the countries-was laid
down in a statute to the effect that in
future each part of the Kingdom was to

1 be governed according to its own con-
oeptions.
The Statute introduced a period of
great solidarity between the Netherleads,
Surinam and the Netherlands Antilles.
The Antillean Posts will will emphasize
this fact by the issue of a special post-
age stamp on the occasion of the 150th
anniversary of the independence of the
Netherlands. This stamp has been de-
s signed by the Netherlands artist R.D.E.
I enaar, who aLso designed the three
commemorative stamps to be issued'by the
Netherlands Postal Services, Nov, 21,
1963, The price of the stamp is NA f~.25,

wm ffiNPff/JBD ISLANDS' OPINION SATURDAY NOV. 9, 1963 Your8 Truly, £Lvin N. Patrick St. Eustatius, N.A. St. Martin's Day By: A. Th. Illidge Columbus and a friend saw his discoveries in a dream. And he sfiled out' with no ohart. Only faith in his heart, and he discovered a world* It is fitting that our government, Frenoh and Dutch, who love eajh other oh, so much commemorate, ajicl oelebrate the 470 years of the Island's^disoovery. Subsidery to this, it is now 315 jears since a Jeaoe treaty has been' signed between the French and Dutoh ••• It is indeed, fitting that we celebrate alteivnatively these two historic events. Every citizen, aught to feel proud Frenoh and Dutch, living on an Island with an area of 9800 Heotares divided by a frontier Northern part 6800 Heotares Southern part 4000 Heotares There is absolutely no room for nothing but peaoe. Tie have all kind of' human problems to be solved; industrial, political, economic, financial and religious These problems cannot be solved by hate, or by o'onfliot or force. They may be suppressed some way or other, but if they are to be solved they must be solved in a spirit of kindly oo-operation, of friendly association and of consultation with a fixed purpose of doing justioe and establishing liberty among men. These are the true and lasting foundations of peaoe. It must not be forgotten, Peaoe itself-is not the achievement of an i-" dealj the ideal itself is human Liberty, Justioeand the honourable conduct of an orderly and humane society* More than obvious, two'nations to live in peace in a small area, for over 315 years Let us give God Thanks for that everlasting foundation ofWeaoe, founded by that holy faith of our forefathers. Let us rejoice and be happy as we continue to make history for posterity. For the power of tradition has been one of the most foundamental and constructive forces"of all people f all tines. As a body propelled through space tends to travel in a direct line unless diverted by some force other than that which drives it, so a people tenets' to follow the impulses of the past, and adhere" to traditions unless turned theeefrom by other influences* Therefore the ing raved history of a nation wheih in a broad sense we call tradition, serves as a balance-wheel, tending to restrain sudden and spasmodic departure, from the normal mode of progress. Historical culture and progress materially promote the welfare of the-commonwealth. People of St. Maarten, Frenoh and Dutch, a third object to be attained by educational features is to promote, the assimilation of our adopted population. Because, knowledge of the history of a city, or state or a" nation conduces to love'of country, civio pride and loyalty, it serves to bind a people together, and make it still more homogenous and give it stability. And last, but not least, it makes the inhabitants better citizens, by holding up to their eyes lofty traditions to interest their affection and inspire their imitation. ST. MAARTEN HARBOUR AND TRANSPORTATION CORP. Memorandum Nov. 4. 1963 Tot Stevedores Bargeerews Piermen Tie are aware that a great percentage of the pilferage to the cargoes landed at this port is caused by our stevedores, bargee rews and piermen. Over the year3 measures have been taken to prevent this but unfortunately'the results are far from satisfactory. In the meantime the Port of Philip sburg har been given a very bad name, with reason. Insurance companies have made steady increases of their premiums as a co.'isequenoe of the heavy claims received on cargo discharged at i this port. In view of the above oiroumstanoes we oonsider it hi.gh time to apply the most severe neafures against any one of our employeei detected in any aot of pilfering or tampering with oargo. "Spies" will be on the lookout and will receive a .reward from, us for a tipoff leading to the apprehension of the criminal* Needles', to mention such persons will be immediately discharged from our service without recourse or CSee Letter 3. on page 9)

Press Release tmmmt &f LETTERSl TO LJUauiL (THE EDITOR* ft******************** (Not the Responsibility of t:ie Editor) St. Eustatius N,A October 24, 1963 Dear Mr. Editor: Please publish the following,in your well read Windward Islands' Opinion. I read in a reoent paper cf the Catholic Church,' about the stand that the Catholic Church in Italy had taken towards the segregation in the United ST. MAARTEN TRADING COMPANY Mainstreet Philipsburg -General merchandise Groceries Household articles Bycicles Hardware Cosmetics Suitcases Ladies. Gents & Children wear. COLD STORAGE AND FRESH VEGETABLES States and the murder of the four girls in Alabama. I'm not a member of any particular church, but I believe in the Fatherhood of God and the Brother-. '•; hood of man, and the Roman Catholic Ghurch is proving that they practice what they preaoh. What is the matte T with the Protest ant Churohes? Why. are .they hiding behind some soreen? The majority of Negroes in Aaerioa and West Indians are Protestants, but most of the churches in these plaoes will allow a man to kill you and then oome to your funeral shedding crocodile tears. Why don't they stand up for justice? No, They.-are afraid to stanti up f-r Justice, all they want is their harvest and missionary meetings, and t their ingatherings and several other money schemes. You have to admire the Roman Catholic Church, for they have proven themselves by their actions, and that according Prop. J.P. CffiJNER to the Bible it is hotter to give than to receive. But, the "other" churches are just'the opposite, and instead of using the word God on their pulpit they should'put the reverse, "GIVE AND WANT" instead of G OD IS LOVE A german writer once wrote that any man who is afraid to stand up for his rights is a slave. Now please don't misunderstand I an not a Catholic, but by their fruits you shall know them, and they have gt some very good fruits. Thanks again if possible to have this letter published in your paper, as I am a West Indian who lived in America for 25 years, and I'm quite sure that many Amerioan Negroes and Christian* white's will agree with me. • •'
