EVANGELIST REV. ALVIN LAKE AT NEW TESTAUENT BAPTIST CHURCH
II
.- The Rev. Alvin Lake, Pastor of the Pilgrin Holliness Church, at Willikies,
Antigua, arrived here earlier this week to conduct a series of revival services
at the New Testament Baptist Church at Philipsburg.
The services started on Wednesday evening, Febr. 5, and have been well attended
by people from all sections of the island The Rev. Lake, a graduate of the Pil-
grim Bible College of Barbados, is married and the father of three sons This
is his second visit to St. Maarten He is a dynamic, young preacher and his
"downto-^earth" sermons make it easy for Mo to keep the' attention of the con-
gregation during the entire service.
We had heard so much about the preaching of Rev. Lake, that on Thursday night
we made it a point of duty to attend the meeting The theme of his^aexaens was:
"WHAT HAVE YOU LIVED FOR? WHAT- ARE YOU LIVING FOR?"
Before delivertng^Uhe message" he sang two hymns in a soft, yet clear and con-
vincing voice and by the time'he started-his sermon the congregation (crowded
ohutch) was ready.

The Rev. Lake held the large crowd
(in and outside the .church) spellbound
as he developed point after point of his
sermon in a most forceful, touching and
convincing unnner Tears could be seen
in many eyes ns this young messenger
of God appealed to his congregation to;
Give up the ways of this world and live
for God. At the end of the message,
many responded to the appeal and knelt
at jfche alter with tearfilled eyes and
a constrite heart.
Rev. Lake impressed us a humble,
honest and serious man who "Practices
what he preaches" The revival services
will continue next week.
Regardless of your religious belief
it might do you some good to listen to

$ 27 l/2 MILLION OIL REFINERY FOR
ANTIGUA ,
N
Preliminary work on Antigua's pro-
posed $ 27 1/2 million oil refinery,
at Friars Hill, has begun on Decem-
ber 30th, 1963. This was announced by
Mr. Herbert G. Dennis, at a Labour
Party sponsored public meeting in
Bolans.
Mr. Dennis who was the main speaker
at the meeting said that work in the
initial stages would mainly be the
carrying out of a survey for running
pipelines and plotting the site but
actual construction work would begin
in February.
He said that with the establishment
of the oil refinery in Antigua, the
velocity of the flow of maney in the
community would be about three times
the present circulation and the capi-
tal investment must have a minimum
turnover of $108,000,000 nearly four
times the capital to make the oil
refinery operate profitable. He added
that out of this amount, the West
Indies Oil Company will pay out $12,900
in wages. .. -.-.

because Chinchiri lives there.
Chinchiri was writing at his table for
some time while I stood silently by
watching him. He knew I was there.
"What you writing Chinchiri?" I asked.
He pushed back his chair and turned to

"Well" says Chinchiri

of the many holes in the
road. So I decided to
write 'm a letter" but
it turned out to be a
poem. You think he'll
get what I nean. He looks
very much enthused about
his endeavour."
"I didn't know you
could write poetry, Chin-
chiri May I see your
poem?" I asked.
"Well I aint finish
with it yet, but catch
a read and tell me how
you like it."
I took it from him and

"You should finish it, man; that's
not bad at all. You should change
the word cavaty though, Say, for

"Oh, yea, so what you does call a
hole in you teeth faint a cavaty?
The dentist don't full up cavaties
road workers full up holes, too -
hence cavaties." Then he looked at me
and laughed, "Bight!"
"You know, you got 'cavaties in

"But 6hinchiri," I began to defend
myself, "why are you using all these

Chinchiri was getting enthousiastic
about the subject.
"Chinchiri, friend, I believe you
would get your point clear, if you
just use simple words." I cenntered.
"More over" I continued, "What the

her husband -/ho had been out all day
long and how seeking for alcohol, rum-
maging about the house. A fight
started when the .jian started cutting
up rubber band wi'th a pair of scissors.
After her husband had dealt her some
blows she fled the house and asked
for police assistance. The police pro-
mised to come. But while awaiting the
police another fight started up now
in the kitchen. The man pushed her a-
round with the hatchet and added that
he intended to give her a cheap burial.
She happened to strike him on a broken
finger am' when -the. hatchet fell she
picked it up and.' delivered the fatal
blow in self defense..
Detectives' investigation determined
that after the blow the man tried to
pursue hhe woman who fled the house.
The police who came to the house.on -j
her request thought first the man "to
be sleeping it off", but later on he
appeared to be quite dead. Dr* O.Y.
Ten Tye, pathological annatomist de-
clared that the wound in itself was
not fatal.but. there were clear symp-
tons of an air-embolie at the autopsy.
The peosecuter deemed death in con-
sequence of physical violence to be
proved. He added however, that not
sufficient evidence was available too
partial where there were.any. The
prosecuter took the graveness the fact
in consideration; also the circumstances
in which she had to live in the Esso
Heights barack's.
The defendant's councillor, mr. P.P.
C.H. van der Voort pleaded murder in
self defense. He added that the defend-
ant's act was an impulsive reaction
of rightful selfdeience, against a
screaming tension brought on by the
victim. And concluded that conse-
quently the defendant should not be
prosecuted. The prosecutor could not
accord selfdefense since her attitude
after the deed did not evoke such. His

TOURISfci OF MriJOL IMPOi&iNCE IN TEE &JftIBBJffi AIOiA :
Tourist trade has long played a major role in many of. the smaller Caribbean coun-
tries. Last year, Jamaica is estimated to have earned about $ 40 million from
tourism this is about two-thirds'the value of the island's merchandise exports.
And the island is working" on a plan to-double tourist earning within the next five
years. .. >
In Puerto Rico, the tourist industry has'from the beginning been an important
part of the island's economic development program-. Last year, tourism earned the
island, over $ 65 million, of which nearly '$ 60 million cane from mainland U.S.
travellers. Thus, largely bycause of intensive promotion, the island increased
tourist earnings by six times over a ten year period*'- --------
Man othe.v smaller islands have been taking advantage of their natural tourist
attractions and achieving impressive results. The total earnings for the Caribbean
area was, up t 13 % last year, with such places as the Virgin Islands, Barbados,
