The rain falls, the sun shines The sane, yet, the heart pines, After many years on another shares, "The Bock" is cherished even nore. Sweet words echoed in heart and head, "There's no place like hone," they said. Let others curse her sacred soil, Let others fron her wamth recoil, Let others scorn her quaint dialect, Let others denounce her, and fret. "The Hock," small, of little fame, Sons of her soil praise her none. There we lived our childhood years, There our first smiles, first tears. There men weie born free and true, Under the old Ked-V.'hite-and-Blue. "The Bock" with all her rustic cham, God bless and keep her from all harm. -Clarence A.

—— wWINDWARD ISLANDS' OPINION Pit £ fit, ;! rill i ? lesterfay evening I was sitting by pier in Philipsburg, my line dangling from my fishing rod. A cool breeze oame flowing from the North on th waves toward me. It ooled my system so nicely that I believed myself some beer or other and was about to do some hybernating. Suddenly a light tap r-n my shoulder aroused me from my contented doze. "What you doing, Chinchiri?" my • friend a teacher, asked. "Uhuh, nothin"', I replied* "Ha," I laughed at myself only now osming to my real senses. "I mean, doin' a li'l fishin' just to while-away the time" "They biting?" "Not yet, and am here 'bout a hour or morle already. One thing for sure the small ones beginnin' to bite the big ohes". "We laughed together. "Well",' said leach' I don't call him "meneer", no jiree; 'tis Teach for me. After all I don't know Dutch so just as cheap say what I understand, what you say?" "tfell, pack up your stuff and let's feed the small ones before they perish", Teach said. "You better take it easy, friend. You sound like you talki.n' politics. Watch you step, you know or you gfin' get you heels burn bad, -bad." "Hell, what's so .political about I offering you a sandwick "Look here, friend all 'I doin' is SATURDAY JAN. 25, I964 hang on to the big ones and you'll get the small ones, you understan'?J" "You do that and we is very glad. Friend this island-o 1 mine is a beautiful island and very deraorcatictoo shooting democratic for comfort. 'Cause too many people got too much to say," By this time we rea "ch "My Snack-bar", "You know, Chinchiri you have been insinuating quite a bit, I believe. You don't sound much like a native at all. Are you a stranger like myself?" Teach asked seriously. "Two hambugger8, there I" I ignored my friend. "He 's goin' pay". At this time I started studying my brains because am tho reflective type of person. You know) I call Teach my friend but really I only know him these few months. Sometime ago when he gave me a lift from this capital to the other capital we fell to talkin' and from then wherever he meets me it is some kind of hospitality he showering me with, Real nice chapl Yes, a real nice chap. "V/onderful island yov got here, isn't it?" he says, I mean the first time we met. "Y, nice li'l islam '" X aid. He must be a tourist, I thought he didn't look like a teacher at all to me. Then he started telling me all kinds of things about Holland — like how people live on top of each other; how overpopulated it is; how he doesn't have this weather there and how some people don't see the sea in months, some even never, Man, we talked a lot. "Onions or not" ,.

The "Food Centre Inc." is an affiliate of the well-known supermarket of Curacao, the "Zuikertuintje", which soae uonths ago bought the business from Jack Tool During an interview with Mr. Hofland, Director of the "Food Centre Inc.", he %  told us that it is the intention of his comapny to give the people of St. Maarten a modern and up-to-date "self-service" supermarket and at the sane time to reduce prices considerably When we asked him what could be understood by reducing prices considerably he tole us that the "Food Centre Inc." will strive to reduce prices to the same level, of Curacao. He explained that this would not happen "over night", however this was one of his goals. Said he: "We; have already had' discussions with the K.N.S.M., the Atlantic Line and the St. Maarten Harbour and Transportation Company, and they have all been most understanding and promised their full support and cooperation." He went on: -"It is my conviction, that St. Maarten--is an island with a great future, my company is willing to cob'perate with all groups, because we know that it is only through cooperation of all can the best be accomplished." He further explained that the "Food Centre Inc." will operate on a "Cash and carry" basis and that customers will receive a 256" cash bonus on every Fls.100.-~ cash purchase. The company will install its own freezing units which will make it possible to import frozen meats in bulk, by boat instead of in snail quantities by plane as is now done. Mr. Hofland impressed us as a genuine person and a sound thinking and able businessman, who knows where he is going ani? who has the push,determination and zeal to get there. The. Windward Islands' Opinion wishes the "Food Centre Inc." much success and expresses the hope that its Director Mr. Hofland and its Local Manager, Mrs. van de Ham will reweive the cooperation and support of the entire community.

As an example, Vince told us that he was chatting with a fellow radio ham only that morning. This han hails from Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. and visited this Island in February 1962. He'd just returned from a vacation in some of the Caribbean islands, and swore that under no circumstances would he return, "You cant call it clearing thru Immigration and Customs; its more like an inquisition than anything else," He then went on to remark on the courtesy and efficiency with which he was cleared at the Juliana Airport. And said he believed that the way tourists are treated on enbareation makes a lasting effect on them and believes it to be a key factor in encouragingthem to return to our island. We then asked Vince if this gentleman planned to return to St. Maarten sometime, in answer to which we were shown an entry inHhe logbook of his station; which'read: "iixpects to arrive St. Maarten with xyl (wife and yl (daughter) on March 25th." Me welcome this opportunity to bring before the public the efficient and courteous manner in which our Immigration Officers, Messrs. Etienne Meyers and James Richardson are performing their duties and aiding in the attracting of tourists to our islands, and therefore deserve the recognition and thanks of our people. +++++++++++++++ LT.
