flag; those oi the Public .shoe
were holding Dutch or Antilluan flags
and those of the *oman Cat4lic
schools had the yellow and white flag
of the Church.
At about 8:50 a.m. a motor-boat was
spotted off Point Blanche, and. Mr.
Lobo, a teacher of the Orange-school
and the organizer of the affair, in-
formed the children that Sint Nihoe-
las along with his partner 'Piet" ws
aboard the motor-boat ed their way to
visit thea, *r. Lobo in a convincing
manner explained that Sint Nicholas
and Piet had-come from a far eof land
aboard a very large ship, but, be-
cause of the-isie of the wharf they
were forced to transfer to the small
motor-boat -'As the motor-boat qear-*
ed the shore,the children accpnatied
by the Community Band started sing-
ing "Sipt Nicholas".
As the boat pulled p to the wharf,
and Sint Nicholas and "Piet diam-.
barked they were greeted a' o e 0
children with cheers and waving aho
Lt. Governor J.J. Beaujon, wsleo~sd
Sint Nicholas and Piet on the wharf
and escorted then to a cowerable,
generously contributed by Boodle1 de
Weever for the purpose.
From the car Piet started distri-
buting candies to the teachers for
the children of their classes, and
when this was done; they drove around
the town in the convertible, driven
by Mr. Lobo.
This was the first time that a
Sint Nicholas Celebeation had been
organized here for al the children,
and it surely did one's heart ged
to see how it was enjoyld y thea'

POSTaL SERVICE OF TIJ N]E~SeANDB
ANTILLES


In the course of the month of De-
cember 1963, the island of Aruba, one
of the six islands of the Netherlands
Antilles with about 58.C00 inhabitants,
will considerably contribute to the
further industrialization in the Nether-
lands Antilles by putting the'recently
built chemical factories in operation.
Apart from the existing oil-refineries
these chemical factories will undoubt-
edly contribute to enlarge the employ-
rent facilities in the Netherlands An-
tilles. The chemical plants rill com-
prise an ammonia factory, pertaining
to the Antilles Chemical Cop-ny Ltd.
and a factory of nutric acid, of nix-
ed artificial manure and of ~uea, per-
taining to the Aruba Chenical Industries
Ltd.
In order to make the establishment
of these factories possible the Govern-
ment has invested considerable amounts
of money for the lay-out of the grounds,
the construction of the harbour, as
well as the extension of the water and
electricity works. The fact that there
is an oil-industry in the island., which
can supply fuel and raw materials in
large quantities, also contributed to
the establishment of the industries in
the island of Aruba. A total amount of
about 42 million U.S.A. dollars has
been invested up to now.
The produce of the au onia factory
will partly be used as- raw materials for'
the other factories and partly be dee-
tined for export purposes. The produce
of the other factories will be sold a-
broad.
On the occasion of the official in-
aug-ration of these factories the
Postal Service of the Netherlands An-
tilles will issue a special stamp on
December 10, 1963.,
Technical details:
Size of the stamp: 40,35 x 30 am
Size of the design: 37,25 x 27 n
Perforation: 13 1/4 : 14
Paper: coated paper without watermark
Sheets of 10 x 10 = 100 stamps
Printing technique: offset

We have been informed that the government plans to have three water storage tanks built at Point Blanche. Work on the construction of these tanks which will have a total capacity of 3000 barrells, is scheduled to start around the middle of January 1964. When the tanks are completed the government will either purchase or charter a tanker to bring rain water from Puerto Rico, which will be stored in them and distributed to the people on the island. In the start, the water will be transported from the tanks by trucks later via pipelines which will be installed for that purpose. We were informed that this will be a temporary measure until the water plant is built at Caybay. LETTERS TO THE 3DIT0R (Not the responsibility of the Editor) Charlestown Nevis 24th.

PCSTiX SETVIC3 OF IH3 NETEE&L/JffiS ANTILLES I In the course of the month of December 1963, the island of Aruba, one of the six islands of the Netherlands Antilles with about 58.COO inhabitants, will considerably contribute-to the further industrialization in the Netherlands Antilles by putting the recently *[ built chenical factories in operation. Apart from the existing oil-refineries these chemical factories will undoubtedly contribute to enlarge the employment facilities in the Netherlands Antilles. The chemical plants Jrill comprise an ammonia factory, pertaining to the Antilles Chemical Company L%d. and a factory of nutric acid, of mixed artificial manure and of u*ea, pertaining to the Aruba Chemical Industries Ltd. In order to nake the establishment of these factories possible the Government lias invested considerable amounts of money for the lay-out of the grounds, the construction of the harbour, as well as the extension of the water and electricity works. The fact that there is an oil-industry in the island, which can supply fuel and raw materials in large quantities, also contributed to the establishment of the industries in the island of /aruba. A total amount of about 42 million U.S.A. dollars has been invested up to now. The produce of the ammonia factory will partly be used as raw materials for^ the other factories and partly be destined for export purposes. The produce of the other factories will be sold abroad. On the occasion of the official inauguration of these factories the Postal Service of the Netherlands iintilles will issue a special stamp on December 10, 1963., Technical details: Size of the stamp: 40,35 x 30 m Size of the design: 37,25 x 27 mn Perforation: 13 l/4 : 14 Paper: coated paper without watermark Sheets of 10 x 10 100 stamps Printing technique: offset Printed by Johan Enachede' & Zonen, Grafiscbe Inrichting N.V., Haarlem.

SATURDAY DEC. 7, 1963 SCHOOL CEILDRilN ENJOY SINT NICHOLAS'S AR3IVAL On Wednesday morning, December 4, the school children of the Dutch Part of the island (fron 1st. to 6th. grades of all schools ) witnessed the arrival of Sint Nicholas at the wharf in Philipsburg with much enthusiasm and excitement. At 8:15 a.m. the children from the various schools started gathering infront of the wharf in Philipsburg, they were accompanied by their teachers. A little later the Philipsburg Community Band under the able leadership of its musical director, Mr. John Ch. Lamonie arrived and took its place infront of the school children. All the children were holding small flags; those of the Public schools were holding Dutch or Antillian flags and those of the Roman Catholic schools had the yellow and white flag of the Church. At about 8:50 a.m. a motor-boat was spotted off Point Blanche, and Mr. Lobo, a teacher of the Orange-school and the organizer of the affair, informed the children that Sint Nicholas along with his partner "Piet" was aboard the motor-boat on their way to visit them, Mr. Lobo in a convincing manner explained that Sint Nicholas and Piet had come from a far off land aboard a very large ship, but, because of the size of the wharf they were forced to transfer to the small motor-boat As the motor-boat near-* ed the shore,the children accompanied by the Community Band started singing "Sint Nicholas". As the boat pulled up to the wharf, and Sint Nicholas and "Piet disembarked they were greeted by over 800 children with cheers and waving flags. Lt. Governor J.J. Beaujon, welcomed Sint Nicholas and Piet on the wharf and escorted them to a convertable, generously contributed by "Boedie" de Weever for the purpose. From the car Piet started distributing candies to the teachers for the children of their classes, and when this was done; they drove around the town in the convertable, driven by Mr. Lobo. This was the first tine that a Sint Nicholas celebration had been organized here for all the children, and it surely did one's heart good to see how it was enjoyed by them. We wish to congratulate Mr. Lobo, the organizer, to thanlf all who assisted in making it a success and at the same time express the hope that it will become an annual affair.'

OFFICIAL OFENING BY THE LT. GOVEHNOR, MR. J.J. BBAUJON, AT 2:30 P.M. ON FRIDAY DEC. 13, 1963. ADMISSION: Dec. 13, Fls. 1.25 Dec. 14, Fls. 0.50 Ste el Band" our sincere thanks and appreciation to the people of St. Maarten for their kind hospitality extended to us during our recent visit. We were indeed touched by their friendliness and by the warn welcome we received wherewer we went. \ve certainly had a wonderful time. Particularly we wish to say a special word of thanks to the members of the "Festival Committee" who we think did a splendid job in organizing the Festival and to encourage then to continue this commendable effect. We look forward to retaliate this kindness in the not too distant future. Yours Sincerely, Calvin A. Ilowell 150 YEARS OF PUS. Ni.TICNiiL INDEPENDENCE By A. Illidge One hundred and fifty years of our National Independence For many years the Nation looked forward for an heir to the House of Orange. Then on the 30th. of April 1909, the news flashed around the world. An heir was born to the Bouse of Orange. And it seemed that all nature had paid tribute to ber birth, indicating she was born to be the greatest democratic Queen on earth. In 1952 Parliament approved constitutional anuenducnt, making the Nether-* lands the first country to enact provisions for yeilding authority to Suprarnational organizations. A 1954 Charter revision gave Surinam and the Netherlands Antilles one time colonies, complete internal autonomy. And so today, we share in the joy and honour in celebrating omr 150 years of National Independence. To-day (Nov. 30, 1963) we commemorate the Duke of Alva, the self styled beggers of the sea, who initiated our groat struggle for independence; soon to be led by that great hero, William The Silence. Side by side with that heriac banner adopted as the flag in our celebration today. The red, white and blue, of the United Netherlands, which has remain, that of Holland unto today. The present celebration recalls the day 300 years when Holland, Little Holland, 12,850 square miles, undaunted by the Arm Forces of he mighty oppressor, sought expansion on the distance seas, when love of Liberty, of thought and art embend her citizens, as well as those of other nations, who dwelt on her shores, with ideas of free government, free thought, free speech, and free education. Today we remember how these principles wore .carried to the virgin soil of America. Not only by Hollanders, but to a much greater extent by English men. English men who caue from those countries, where those bands of Dutch had itaaigrate" y^ars before; En. lish men who had a refuge from Religious persecution. Those noble Pilgrim Fathers who after having lived with us the 12 years of our truce with Spain, embued with the ideals Holland was standing for, sailed to the Mew '..'orld to carry out those ideals. Also like William Pen in latter years, whose mother was Dutch who spoke the Dutch language, anct whose form of government was entirely modeled on that of Holland. Ladies and gentlemen, and fellow citizens, in speaking of the greatness of Holland today, we cannot forget Peter Stuyvesant, the fourth and most famous of the Dutch Governor General, of Holland who was appointed in 1647. He lost a leg in the Eutch service on this very island of St. Maarten. It is fittir to remember him today. The free democratic Lcwlander has net lost his enthusiac that enthusiasm is no longer founded upr defence against oppression, but rather, upon gratitude, Every night, minded Hollander feels toward the line of princely leaders ifSao created and perpetuated our independence. It finds its higher expression :.n the-veneration of every Hollander and every citizen of the Netherlands ijit.illes, for that fair and august Democrat of the House of Orange, who nov/ ref.gns our us, (See INDEPENDENCE on page 11)
