concentration, develops bettftr comprehen-
sion, improves spelling and vocabulary,
increases reading rate and helps to as-
sure, success in phonics, outlining,,note-
taking, listening etc.
The complete program can be grasped in a
relatively short time, and ij}?porapiises
of a set of four reading improvement train-
ing, books. (Beading for Power, Reading for
Speech, Wori Attack and Personal Heading
Record). There is also a testing program
(The Iowa Silent Reading Test Form CM and
DM), and a complete visual training pro-
gram which plays an important,part, and
includes a training projector; reading
pacer and accelerator, an automatic tach-
istoscope, which flashes sefs of digits
or phrases at set speeds, flfeih. films and
a rateometer for individual instruction
which are used to build phase-reading so
that the student can acquire .'the. ability
to concentrate and develop a!flex ible
reading speed. The speed runs from below
100 words per minute to well above 2000 i
words per minute. }*>
This course is not only liuited to. the
island of Aruba solely, but peji also be
offered to leading individuals! throughout
the Windward Islands, and it'should help
to serve the purpose of contributing to
the present development of yduir growing
economy. If reading personalties are
interested, (and it is logical that busi-
ness men, office workers, government em-
ployees, group leaders, association heads,
church leaders etc., would want to take
advantage of such a course), *e would be
happy to visit your lovely island during
the Easter vacation period an|; present
this program at a suitable tijje when most
^eople can easily and conveniently profit
from our class sessions, proykfled that
there are enough concerned individuals
who wish to avail themselves of such an
offer.
The entire course runs for about four to
five weeks, (according to ability) and a
small fee of 50 guilders per.- ffeudent is
charged, excluding text books and other
material which totals *o approximate1 v.
20 guilders.
The ability to read fast and with under-
standing is directJy related to success
m business. Reading is the corner stone
of education, and the late John Kenne-
dy, President of the U.S.A., attri-
butes his dynamic leadership and suc-
cess to his great skill in reading.
He read comprehensively at the rapid
rate of 1,200 words per minute. Studenta
in our present classes are reading at
1000 words per minute.
For further information interested per-
sons may write to us here at, Programs
for Achievement in Reading, Arubaanse
Handels Academie, San Nicolas, Aruba,
Netherlands Antilles.
Thank you 1
Most cordially yours,
C. Browne, Director.
ADDRESS GIVEN BY ESittJ A. GIBBS, PRESI-
DENT OF THE UNITED. DUTCH & FRENCH COM-
MITTEE OF NIT;/ YORK AT THE FIRST ANNUAL
MEETING HELD IN JANUARY, 1964
-
Once again it is with a feeling of
sincere appreciation that I extend to
you on behalf of the Committee, best
wishes for the Season. I hope the year
1964, will bring to all of us and to
the Committee an abundance of Divine
blessings that are most needed and
then I pray for health and happiness.
I am mindful of the fact that what-
ever success has come to us in the past
year was the result of your effort,
your support, which together we share
and share alike.
This year the words of the Apostle
Paul, speaking to the Philippians gives
us a sense of hope and direction as
we look to the future. "Brethren, I
count not myself to have apprehended;
but this one thing I do, Forgetting
those things which are behind and reach-
ing forth unto those things which are
before, I press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus."
It is not that we aren't..grateful
for the past, but we feel'that /the ex-
perience of our yesterdays, good or
bad shall inspire a deeper dedication
for the higher goals of the future.
What then are our concerns for our
tomorrows? First and foremost we must
firmly establish our present position
by strengthening and fortifying the

engaged in a conaon cause.
Secondly, we-oust intensify; our drive
by putting our shoulders to he wheel if
we are to meet successfully the challenges
of our year's program as set forth by our
planning Committee.
Thirdly, a greater spirit of coopera-
tion and responsible sharing oust be
developed in our Coccittee the steward-
ship of the faithful has been:weakened
and discouraged by the laxity, of the in-
consistent bystander* We must remember
that''the water is constantly dp theorise
and if we are not constantly:raising our
level of work we shall soon disappear*
Finally, my friends and fellow workers,
in the Tear of our Lordj 1964* let us
put forth sincere efforts to!forget all
the unpleasant and negative experiences
and in love and understanding, move out
in Christian unity as we "press toward
the nark for the prize of the high calling
o-f God in Christ Jesus."
-It'is only by adhering to these princi-
ples that we may reach out in Christian
love and touch the needs of those we
would serve.

proved the lovers had captured the
public fancy, aroused enthusiastic
receptions on a triumphal tour of
Amsterdam, and brought their two
families together in highly genial
circumstances.
Queen Juliana, Prince Consort Bern-
hard, Beatrix, Margriet and the 16-
year-old younger daughter, Christine,
all joined in yesterday in a demon-
strative show for the lovers. They
went to Schip Hoi Airport to receive
don Carloss parents, Prince Xavier
and Donna Magdalena and his sisters.
Carlos and Irene in a twc-eeater sports
car with the top down led the motorcade
into Amsterdam along streets jammed
with end of the afternoon crowds.
The two families then toured Amster-
dam's canals by boat. -Along the ad-
jacent streets and clustered on the
scores of bridges, the Dutch cheered
lustily. It was a fairy tale to them
and they liked it immensely. Flags
hung from public buildings and street
peddlers sold small flags and pins by
the thousands.

There is also a testing program (The Iowa Silent Reading Test Form CM and DM), and a complete visual training program which plays an important,part, and includes a training projector; reading pacer and accelerator, an automatic tachistoscope, which flashes sefs of digits or phrases at set speeds, flfeih. films and a rateometer for individual instruction which are used to build phase-reading so that the student can acquire .'the. ability to concentrate and develop a!flex ible reading speed. The speed runs from below 100 words per minute to well above 2000 i words per minute. }*> This course is not only liuited to. the island of Aruba solely, but peji also be offered to leading individuals! throughout the Windward Islands, and it'should help to serve the purpose of contributing to the present development of yduir growing economy. If reading personalties are interested, (and it is logical that business men, office workers, government employees, group leaders, association heads, church leaders etc., would want to take advantage of such a course), *e would be happy to visit your lovely island during the Easter vacation period an|; present this program at a suitable tijje when most ^eople can easily and conveniently profit from our class sessions, proykfled that there are enough concerned individuals who wish to avail themselves of such an offer. The entire course runs for about four to five weeks, (according to ability) and a small fee of 50 guilders per.ffeudent is charged, excluding text books and other material which totals *o approximate1 v. 20 guilders. The ability to read fast and with understanding is directJy related to success m business. Reading is the corner stone of education, and the late John Kennedy, President of the U.S.A., attributes his dynamic leadership and success to his great skill in reading. He read comprehensively at the rapid rate of 1,200 words per minute. Studenta in our present classes are reading at 1000 words per minute.

DUTCH & FRENCH COMMITTEE OF NIT;/ YORK AT THE FIRST ANNUAL MEETING HELD IN JANUARY, 1964 %  Once again it is with a feeling of sincere appreciation that I extend to you on behalf of the Committee, best wishes for the Season. I hope the year 1964, will bring to all of us and to the Committee an abundance of Divine blessings that are most needed and then I pray for health and happiness. I am mindful of the fact that whatever success has come to us in the past year was the result of your effort, your support, which together we share and share alike. This year the words of the Apostle Paul, speaking to the Philippians gives us a sense of hope and direction as we look to the future. "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended; but this one thing I do, Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." It is not that we aren't..grateful for the past, but we feel'that /the experience of our yesterdays, good or bad shall inspire a deeper dedication for the higher goals of the future. What then are our concerns for our tomorrows? First and foremost we must firmly establish our present position by strengthening and fortifying the
