4. l heroism and leadership, he won the
*rvy and Marine Corpse edal. Kennedy
`IX his political career has also proven
1,,Imelf to be a man of courage ... The
Sfim stand which he took during the
Lc ia crisis in October 1962, demonstra-
a part of the courage for which he
noted,;
I"194I ht 29 he ran for the House of


Hi^e an was lecte ed to try
j.. *n 1.j


for the Sanate. And eve~ though he
was faced with the difficult tank of
having to oust the Bepublican, Hmry
Cabot Lodge Jr., who held the teat,
he did not flinch. Again the young
politician succeededand in the years
that followed, young, JOHN FITZGEULD
KENNEDY developed into a competent
Senator, which paved the way for his
election as President in 1960.
Kennedy got great national recogni-
tion during the 1956 Democratic Con-
vention, when the presidential nomina-
tion was won by the former Governor
of Illinois, Adlai Stevenson. At that
time he almost won the nomination of
Democratic candidate for the vice-
presidency. In a neck-and-neck race
he was finally defeated by the late
Senator Kefaiver, who at that time was
very popular because of his fight a-
gainst the underworld in the United
States. Kennedy however was not dis-
couraged, and while the election battle
of 1956 was still in full sway, he,
with the full support of his family,
known as the "Kennedy clan" in Ameri-
ca, started laying the ground work for
th6-battle-for the presidency in 1960.
Joseph Patrick Kennedy, (now 74)
dreamed of a political career for.his
eldest son Joe, but Joseph Jr. died
in the war and to defend tLe family
honour, Jack had to become a politi-
cian.
Like his father before him, John F.
Kennedy studied at Harvard He com-
pleted his social-economic and histor-
ical studies in 3 1/2 years and gra-
duated cum laude, in 1940. He intend-
ed to become a writer or a journalist,
but after the diath of his eldest bro-
ther, he was forced to become a poli-
tician ... In this he had the whole
hearted backing of the'entire "clan":
Mother Rose, sisters, BIniqe, Patricia
and Jean, brothers, Teddy and .obby
(the latter now Attorney General of
the U.S.), beother-in-laws, eister-
in-laws, cousins and later JacquelMne
Boudier, Jack's 'harming and talented
wife, all put their shoulders to the
wheel" in helping Jack to the top; 4n
addition Joe Sr., multi-millionaire,
supplied the necessary dollars 'idW
needed.
InilO9 when John Kennedy was elect-
ed President of the United 8'te h
had already been in politics for

It is the custom each year to gatUer
around the Monument of Friendship and
give a general view of what has been
done during that year, and the per.
spectives of the year to cone.
My it be permitted for me to break
this tradition, not to speak either of
budget or noney or cubic meters of
concrete nor of kilometers of electric
wire or telephone lines.
No, on this day ,a .t St Wrtitn 1a,
I do not want to present you a wBjr-
ial balance. When we put up a cab-
struction, when ue lay out a road, when
we throw a line, we do not add zterial
to material, metal to ,etal,. w only
wish to give a shelter to h*Ask
to join a citizen to .thje R"i.e p(ir
of other citizens. To bring-happiqC ps

All our projects, all our realisa-
tions are made for and by man, and for
the St. Martiner, The ancestor of 1648
had already learned the lesson of soli-
darity. This ancestor, our ancestor,
realized the union of two people en
his territory, whatever their nature
night have been, their belongi p or
their beliefs.
In the year, of grace 1948 sinouq .

S.OPINION LO

i drnoet know lots depend on the working out of the details and also on the ne% s-
sar- government licenses I. can say however, that th group who plan to join- me
will arrive here in December for discussions. At this time I will not venture to
eay how powerful the station will be but you can be assured that it will be ftar
nrepowerful than PJD2.
In the past Rev. Mayer hr.s besides running his own programs contributed greatly
to the public interest. 'e cap all recall the detailed coverage he gave to the elec-
tion returns his informative reports on the weather during the hurricane season as
Swell as the fine job he is doing by keeping us posted on the latest world news.
Speaking about news I must mention that just last week I received a letter ,fro
A' psociated Press one of America's outstanding news agencies informing me that
tey understood that PJD2 would soon be operated on the basis of a non-profit stat-
i~on and that consequently their news service wouli become available at a very noni-
nal charge; This means that FJD2 could have-a 24 hours hook-up directly with New'
York for the latest in news.
In conclusion I want to ask all our listeners and sponsors to continue their Uup-
port tc PJD2. The ownership of the station will remain in.my hands or rather in the
hands of TH VOICE OF SIrT uiRTiNLT N.V. and the management and operation will be
entr-sted to Rev. Mayer.
:: Thank you.

Without applying to then his philosophy of exsistence has brough neighbouring people to him, and all of this contact has not destroyed the harmonious equilibrium.But, look, all of a sudden the wave of the 20th. century has grippedist. Martin, look now suddenly this wave^has attracted wealth, the taste of organization, the. horror of carelessness, she acconpanyed herself from the regulation of I collectivity,she removes the frontiers, she shrinks the continents, abolishes the seas, and bring the people to a common level. Look, suddenly St. Martin is four hours away from New York, and soon it will be three. Look suddenly St. Martin is nine hcurs away fron Paris, and soon it will be eight hours Look suddenly Auerica and Europe are at our doors, and the first one buys part of the island, the second one is preparing to do the sane. Are we conscious of these facts, if yes, does one have to retreat in front of these people like the worker of the former days, who destroyed his machine? Does one have to give up himself as a hater of foreigners? 9i reject reject all of this! This brutal reaction is the denial of progress. Many would like to destroy the electric bulbs and return to the candle, throw the gasbottle in the sea and blow again in the fire-place. In front of progress our reaction nust be vigilance. We have to get up out of our rockingchairs and look at our doors finding again the ardour of our fathers to exploit the island penetrating the roads and chasing away the haruful who nay it be. V/e have to nake ourselves the labourers of this progress and promote it in order to reuain master. Fron passive we becoue active. From being in debt we becoue ambitious from being discovered people we become explorers. All St. Martiners posses these virtues so why not exhibit them? Progress solicts the pride, the courage and the vigilance You have all these virtues. Right here, swear before your ancestors to remain worthy to them and you, born in the twentieth century stay worthy of then. Keep high heart St. Martiners, the' task is new and immense. It is up to you! :::::::::::: like a whisssper ... EVINRUDE BLUE BANDHOLLAND'S BEST Adrress By Mr. N.C. Vathey Over P.J. D. 2 (The Voice of St. Maarten) at 8.45 p.n. Nov. 26, 1963. Ladies and Gentlemen: Tonight I want to make a brief announcement regarding the change of operation of this station which will go into effect on Decaaber 1st. Possibly uany of our listeners have already hoard of the new arrangement but in interest of those who do not know here is an account of the planned change. For quite some time already Bev. Mayer lias been leasing the daytime hours transmission during which tine religious, cultural and educational material was broadcast. Public response tc his programs was most encouraging not only here on this island but also on tiany of the surrounding islands. This is evidenced by the fact that each week he. receives a volume of fan mail from listeners here as well as from the other islands. He has also able to attract for broadcast over this station taped programs fo internationally know orators. After nearly 19 months of broadcasting from the studies here at Fort ilnsterdau I am confronted with the reality that in order tc make the station self-supporting I would have to make some cl r.nges in the operation. It proved to be insufficiently justified seen fron an economical point of view to lease the station during the daytime hours and run it as a regular commercial broadcast station during the hcurs of 5 p.n. to 10 p.n. The financial proceeds of the nighttime transmission were inadequate to cover the operational cost involved. It was left to ny decision whether to discontinue the lease on the daytime transnission or to discontinue the night operation. My decision has gone in favour pf the former. .I know that to a great number of our listeners this will be a big disappointment for I an aware that many persons enjoyed our evening programs. I want to assure you that the discontinuation is only of tenporary nature for I have serious plans in collaboration with some professional radio people — tc build a new station which will be the regtalr type of commercial station. Just hew soon this will be I

For his heroism and leadership, he won the Navy and Marine Corps Medal. Kennedy in his political career has also proven himself to be a man of oourage ... The firm stand which he took during the Cuban crisis in October 1962, demonstrated a part of the courage for which be was noted. In 1946 at 29 he ran for the House of Representatives and was elected to the Congress... In 1952 he decided to try for the Sanate. And even though he was faced with the difficult task of having to oust the Republican, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., who held the seat, he did not flinch. Again the young politician succeededand in the years that followed, young, JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY developed into a competent Senator, which paved the way for his election as President in 1960. Kennedy got great national recognition during the 1956 Democratic Convention, when the presidential nomination was won by the former Governor of Illinois, Adlai Stevenson. At that time he almost won the nomination of Democratic candidate for the vicepresiiency. In a neck-and-neck race he was finally defeated by the late Senator Kefauver, who at that time was very popular because of his fight against the underworld in the United States. Kennedy however was not discouraged, and while the election battle of 1956 was still in full sway, he, with the full support of his family, known as the "Kennedy clan" in America, started laying the ground work for the!-battle ^for the presidency in 1960. Joseph Patrick Kennedy, (now 74) dreamed of a political career for.his eldest son Joe, but Joseph Jr. died in the war and to defend tLe family honour, Jack had to become a politician. Like his father before him, John P. Kennedy studied at Harvard He completed his social-economic and historical studies in 3 l/2 years and graduated cum laude in 1940. He intended to become a writer or a journalist, but after the death of his eldest brother, he was forced to become a politician ... In this he had the whole hearted backing of the entire "clan": Mother Rose, sisters, Euniqe, Patricia and Jean, brothers, Teddy and Bobby (the latter now Attorney General of the U.S.), brother-in-laws, sisterin-laws, cousins and later Jacqueline Boudier, Jack's 'charming and talented wife, all put their "shoulders to the wheel" in helping Jack to the top; in addition Joe Sr., multi-millionaire, supplied the necessary dollars when needed. In'I960 when John Kennedy was alected President of the United States he had already been in politics for fourteen years Kennedy who had a great deal of world travel was an exception-J ally courageous man, with a firm be>

ARP ISLANDS' CPINION -*T*" i'ti W&iT OUR R3ADERS CCMPLlIN ABOUT A number of our readers have complained to us about the condition in which they received the;, cargo which arrived here on the Ant ilia on r,i on day Nov. 25. Many household articles which arrived on this boat were badly damaged, but what brought the loudest protests were the many items which were damaged because of rain. <; Such items as mattresses^hair-cushions etc., were left on the wharf upprotected (not covered) and were badly damaged by rain According tc reports it was only after the rain had fallen and the caggo was already wet,that efforts were made to cover the:cargo. The complainers are. of the opinion that this was carelessness on the part of those responsible for thecargo. We checked this matter with the proper authorities and were explained that one of the main reasons for damaged car-' go is inadequate facilities %  Jt was explained that the present wharfIwas built to accommodate about 40 or 50 tons of cargo and that now 100 to 2^0 tons of cargo is landed there it was'further explained that the cargo wascovered from the rain but explained the harbour authority: "No natter how well you cover cargo, if it is not in a shed and frain falls a certain part of >it will most probably get wet" He however expressed concern about the damaged cargo even though according to him little can be done to prevent it at present, due to inadequate facilities. ., %  •'-.< f .-.

He was a master in the art of-political debates and organizing... Even before he took the oath as Head of the most powerful nation in the world,_..he organized a nation wide "battue" to'sellect the most qualified condiiates (without consideration of political conviction, religion or color) to serve as,;his advisers. Because of this be was surrounded at the very beginning of his term by a group of men who could be Considered as the best available brains of the nation. Ee had never even heard of some of these men before. In his choice for Secretary of State, he bypassed such prominent figures of the Party as Adlai Stevenson and Dean Acheson for the less known, Dean Rusk. The young residBet also brought a new pirit in American politics; is foreign poli ies as well as 8 domestic clicies... He aced the Comist threat ourageously, fend was not araid to risk he possibility >f a nuclear war rhen it was a [uestion of deending the prin-jliples of the Inites States nd the Free orId. This was _/ : emonstrated in the Berlin as well as in he Cuban crisis. On the national level ennedy stood firmly against the Southjrn States in their attempt to'maintain cial discrimination, and when .necessary even used the "strong arm" i>f the aw (as in the case of James Meredith at he diversity of Mississippi)to uphold he Constitution of the United States ch gaurantees equal rights to every itizen.

What effect his death will have on the world, is still difficult to forecast. It is however certain, that with his passing, the world has lost a man of great courage, a man who believed in the equality and dignity of man the fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man, a man who to use his own words "did not ask what his country could do for him, but who instead wanted to know what he could do for his country", a man who was the greatest champion of the equality and dignity of man the world has ever known. He was not only the greatest president of the United States (in our opinion) but a man who because of his unquestionable courage and deep sense of human justice was the undisputed leader of the Free world He was a loving husband and a kind, devoted and gentle father. JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY is now no more; he has been snatched from the people of the Free world and the Nation he served so ably, 'from bis wife and two children, Caroline (6) and John Fitzgerald Jr. (3), from his other relatives and close friends by an assassin's bullet; but the fine principles for which he stood, and which he so courageously defended...The principles for which he laid down his very life, CAN NEVE: DIE. The Windward Islands' Opinion joins other publication media in expressing deepest regret over the d'eathv of so nable a figure in so abrupt a manner and expresses the hope that his noble soul may forever BEST IN PEACE. oflooooooOOOOoooooooo
