Mother Superior, and to the entire staff for the kind and nost humane manner in which these nost sympathetic 8isters have performed their act of first aid on our little baby son (Daniel Sylvain) until the presence of our, competent doctors, could have been > obtained. Ours little baby;was taken to the liarigot hospital in a critical condition and was ordered to be hospitalized along with the mother immediately by the Rev. Sister Louis of the Liarigot hospital. This Bev, Sister, who by experience and skill, seems to have acquired the knowledge of a good doctor, gave us her words of hope, and confidence, that with God first and the Doctor, herself and aids, our little boy, would soon be out of danger. Instantly her work of survival was started on the little baby boy. Our competent Doctors took over on their arrival, and after one week in the hospital, we could have boasted the hopes of a first baby son, among many little daughters.

Sylvain Gumbs & Family To the Editor of the Windward Islands Opinion: January 16, 1964. In behalf pf the entire family and relatives of the late'MISS FiUNCES HODGE, I'm hereby taking this opportunity; to say a word of thanks, in appreciation tc all those that paid the last tribute of respect, to our dear beloved one. On the beautiful Sunday morning of January 12, 1964; not long after arriving from church, my grandmother Miss Frances E. Eodge, paid us a visit. Se were indeed delighted and very much amused by her presence, she looked so charming; had you seen her, you would not have believed that she was 88 years of age. She seemed to have had her visits all planned; for approximately 2-weeks previously to the above mentioned date she had visited her daughter Mrs. Ianta Richardson living at Cole-bay; she was indeed glad to have had the opportunity to visit her grandchildren and great grandchildren at Cole Bay. I heard her having quite a debate with my mother, fidrs. Octavia Richardson, finally she asked my mother to accompany her. to the home of her youngest daughter Hiss Ethel Lake, however, due to unforeseen circumstances my mother was'unable to accom any her. The next thing she did was to inform my aunt, Mrs, Liaude

It was the spirit and determination of one man, Mr. de Eaynen, which fired the Sabians to the lofty ambition of struggling to demonstrate to the world that even Saba could be equipped with an airstrip. There after the financial aif, intellect, leader; ship'and understanding of dedicated men have nurtured and developed the idea which was born in Mr. de liaynen's soul tc be reflected and magnified by the yearning of the people of Saba for a better ana nore comfortable Saba. On the 4th. of September 1960 hurricane, donna s.riously damaged the first plane which landed on Saba. I heard Mr. de Kaynen offer it's propeller to Saba. I do hope soon his offer will be ac .epted and-this propellor will hang as a symbol in the terminal at Flat Point. Mr. de Eaynen, a Frenchman, brought the conviction that the Sabians had not hoped in vain. Let this propellor therefore also symbolize that unity among men warrants peace anc progress. xJid as we gaze upon our little relic of Saba's first aircraft if we are lucky to obtain it let us realize that the progress of our island may be propelled an-.: aided from without but is mostly greatly dependant upon the energy and labour originating from within, from the Sabians themselves. It is no easy task to maintain and stimulate a healthy and balanced economy on hehalf of a group of people. Saba's island government has as first duty tc endeavour to effect that from the improvements received, such as our airstrip and connecting road, in order that a lasting benefit will steadily manifest itself amongst the people, -braham Lincoln said it so coneise: "the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people." To those who endeavour in honesty and justice to serve the interest of Saba I cannot withhold my approval. The Sabians at home are called upon to serve this purpose, ils one whose origin is amongst the Sabians I will continue always to wish Saba and the achievements of Saba unblemished success. No matter where I am I sincerely hope that every Sabian in the course of time receive to some degree in this life the fulfilment of their aspirations and dreams of happiness that are shared by all humanity Curacao, January 4th. 1964 E.C.

WDOSASE ISLANDS OFDf TON SATUJtD^Y JAN. 18, 1964 >.'. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR (Not the responsibility of the editor) Deat Editor; After listening to the lecture of the Eon. teacher Mr. Arrindell of Marigot on his thene of Education, at the Men's Club at Marigot And his answers to the various questions and to Mr.Baley, teacher of Cole Bay and many others on the subject of Education, School, Teachers, Guardians and children. The entire subject provided food for thought and has given wings to ny oind and flight tc uy imagination. Consequently I have seen the imperative"necessity for a general meeting of all teachers, parents, guardians and children for a better understanding on the whole. Therefore I made immediate contact with the Principals of the schools for a general public meeting, which was gladly accepted. I also spoke to nev. Khan on the subject, who immediately agreed and offered one hundred chairs, for whereever the meeting will be kept. But, asked please not to keep it in his absent, as he would like to voice his opinion. The Honorable Principal, lit, Lindeboon will give a lecture on the subject, all parents, guardians and children -i are politely invited to be present at this particular meeting. It will be one of the most constructive and important meetings of its kind. Public sentiment will be a potent factor. The Lady Principle of the St.. Joseph College will also voice her sentiment on this important issue. Mr. Baley, teacher of Cole Bay has been lonf, waiting for an opportunity to express his views j*nd many more including Miss Bells. This issue was brought about because of parents going to teachers with reference to the behavior of children. Too many mothers love for her child is like the instinct of an animal only ready to but and bite. Fourtheen or fifteen years ago, due to some action on the part of one of the teachers who lost contral, and illtreated a child The Eon, Legislative Council, past a law, that teachers may not whip or strike a child with their hands. The children if today, are taking a direct advantage of this situation, no fear, no respect, one way or another; which is causing a terrible reaction in community life, State and Government. It is time that the general sentiment of the Public be moved in this particular direction It should be understood, that the teacher is the child's other mother. In a pure state of nature the child would need no other teacher than its mother, but the econamic demands upon the poor and the social demands upon the rich; make a third party indispensable. In the average hone, there is a woeful lack of love eveybody is so busy. So the child is sent to school, and the other mother gives her mother's love, her patience and her tact to bring about a pleasurable animation, a condition the average parent cannot evolve; and without which, mental anspiritual growth are impossible. Therefore teachers ned the morel support and co-operation of parents and not their ignorant displeasure. So a meeting has been planned for early February. The general public will be informed of the date and place in a later issue of this newspaper. So we all tl-ank the Men's Club of Marigot for the pleasant evening of Men's fellowship, there was about 65 to 70 men present, V/e thank the guest-speaker of the evening for his theme on education and the many persons who asked questions, on tLe subject of parent and children and the regulation of law governing the.'Situation.
