EDITORIAL
Dear readers, V
The character CHINCHIRI has undoubtedly had your attention during these two
nonths. Runours have reached our ears that this personality is rapidly becoming
controversial. Since the main character "CHINCHIRI" is "hrouded in a great deal
of r^stery Our Editor is incessantly plaqued with questions, pertaining to hit
intentity. "'.JIIO IS HE?"
Our mentality here in St. Maarten is such that it is more concerned with persons
than with personalistic conditions, situations. We do not believe that CIIINGIMI
is preoccupied with personalities: As far as we have understood hin, it is our
opinion that he is frank about certain conditions e.g. in his first "action"
(allow us tc tern his every appearance "an action") he was rather brief in ex-
posing the relationship between St. Maarten and; the Dutchman here who is usually
a teacher; his ignorance of the Futch language. This gives us an idea about his age.
We don't believe hin to be very old. We do ht,pe he touches this aspect of our So-
ciety again sonetipe Then last week as we try to interpret we believe to imp
derstand bin putting forth the "Absurdity of fear". Showing Crow's fear as an i
naginary thing. After tunning all that distance Crow cane to realize his fear had
no serious ground. "People are afraid of their shadow," of themselves.
To us it was a stinulance to find out what we are afraid of. Are there really
scarecrows about the place to keep us out of certain fields? Let us search ours
selves. Perhaps our fear is as rediculous as Crow's. Here again we percsive that

do ray very best."
Mr. Mathew went to Aruba over1 15 years
ago as a fourth class teacher and was
first elected to the islandcouncil of A-
ruba on the P.P.A.rlist in 1955 Over
the years he has always nade it a point
of duty to help Windward Islanders re-^
siding in Aruba, regardless of their po-
litical conviction. His willingness to
help those in need add in trouble has be-
come so wellknown, that now, not only
Windward Is landers but also, Arubans,
Curacao"eans and others; whenever in
difficulties, seek the assistance of
'Mat" which he always readily gives It
is a very coonan natter for him to pay;
waterbiils, lightbills etc. for persons
who have been unable to pay these bills
themselves, so that all the money which
he receives as a member of the Staten
(and even more) is jused. to help others.
The new Deputy of Aruba is the last of
eight children of Mr. and Mrs. Abraham
Mathew (both deceased) of Sucker Garden
and was born on February 26, 1928 Af-
ter completing the St. Joseph College
at Philipsburg, he attended Normal School.
After graduating as a 4th. class teacher,
he was appointed as a teacher of the 3rd.
grade at the Oranjoschool-in Philipsburg.
In 1948 he went to Aruba and was asigned
as a teacher at the Prince Berhardschool
in San Nicolas. In 1958-Mr. Mathew was"
transferred to the Court Recorder's
Office in Oranjestad with the rank of
Adjunct Connies and was later appointed
as substitute Court Recorder. After his
election to the Staten (Legislative Coun-
cil) qf the Netherlands Antilles in 1962 -
it became necessary for him to be away
from.his jen to attend Staten meetings
at Curacao he was then transferred to
the Government Adginistrative Office at
San Nicolas where he has become a most
efficient government official'.
Mr. Mathew joined the ranks of the P.P.
A. in 1951 and in 1954 his name was placed
on the P.P.A.-list for the Staten election
In 1955 he was elected as a member of the
islandcouncil of Aruba on the P.PJ1.-
list His strong sense of service to his
constituents over the years has made him
a most popular popular political fugure
in Aruba and a great art et to his party
(the P.PJ1.) During ^;he Staten elect-
ion in 1962 he got 158V prefenential
votes, a feat which wai only surpassed
in hi8 par|y, by the party Leader,
the late Juancho Yrausquin and out-
side of the F*P.A only by Pelipito
B Troup when he was still leader of
the UNA, and in the A.V>i only by
Henny Earn and after his death by his
son Shon A. EmaU.
Mr. Mathew is happily married for
over ten years to the former Miss
Elise Legrand, a most gracious lady
from French Quarter, St. Martin and
they have one son.
"Mat" recently told our Editor: *Vy
greatest sibition is to erve my peo-
ple, and se^rve then well1' As Deputy
of Aruba, Mr. Mathew will undoubtedly
have a chance to serve his people -
The Windward Islands' Opinion congra-
tulates him and wishes him much success
in his new job*

ELECTRICITY FOR ST. EUSTiJIUS
Wa were informed by a relaible source
that St. Eustatius will soon be sup-

According to our source of informa-

work which will make it possible for
St. Eustatius to be supplied with elec-

St. Maarten Electric Company (G.E.S.
M.) upon the instructions oi the govern-

The two diesel generators which fomer-
ly supplied Philipsburg with electricity
will be installed at Statia The esti-
mated cost of supplying St. Eustatius
with electricity has been set at Fls.
90,000. and this project will be ':.-
financed by the government.
Electricity is a most necessary mo-

Morning met Chinchiri
in his pyjana's pacing the
floor of his cute little
yellow house over the pond.
"What you got man" Buzz
greeted him. He did not
knock; he just poured in-
to the roon like he was
everybody's cuty. This was
Buzz's way of life, care-
free a happy-go-lucky fel-
low.
"Cool, man, cool!"
Chinchiri answered hin
vaguely like he was play-
ing way-out jazz. Then
he continued to say "Heck
of a night, nan heck of
a night!"
Chinchiri looked upset.
"Well, what happened -
you aiu't get in no trpu-
ble; I knows you like to
say things and faint sen-
sible to say everything,
nobody aint fire a gun af-
ter you in the dark, they
ain't "
This tine Buzz, Chinchi-
ri 's good friend, deep
down in a great fluster-
ation fully concerned
about Chinchiri.
"Cold your horses, nan,
things not that bad, no,
they not that bad. Tis a dream I had last
night. Buzz, friend tis a heck of a dream
for true, you-know,
"What drean that be, nan, Chinchiri?" Buzz's
frown soften when he realized it was nothing
serious; at least Chinchiri did not have an ac-
cident or sicknesst~
."YeS, I dreant a dream Boy, that was a heck
of a dream. .And I know this dream must mean
something. Man, it was like am talkin' to you,
Buzz* iteai:rt
''But tell me what you dream j man. Hell, what
you stallin' for." Buzz's curicsity had became
bigger than hinself and he could not surpress it
any longer.
Chinchiri jsnook his head,; cocked ii on .the
side^ apd saidJV'Lobki: Buzz,, this dreacl-OHniine:
is so rare, that % feel silly repeating it; Ti* -1
a real dream. In other words tis a dreamer's

"Lannit, nan, Chinchiri if you goin' tell me,
tell ne or drop dead,1" Buzz raged. Buzz had a
quick temper; Chinchiri knowing this paid
his outburst no mind.
Still looking BuzZ^slyly he finally said:
"Buzz, friend, last night I dreamt I was govern-
or." Buzz's mouth fell into an idiotic gape,
his eyes became incredulous of what he heard.
Then a fit of hysterical laughter caught hin and
folded hin double. '.
"Buzz, finally catching his breath and tears in
his eyes frou laughter blurted out: "But, nan,
you black! Lan black, too!" Both were silent for
a nenent when Buzz said again. "Chinchiri, man,

or what. Co what'. Governorl Ai you, Buddy! I bet

at hin when Chinchiri said: "Buzz, friend, you

"What you got man" Buzz greeted him. He did not knock; he just poured into the roon like he was everybody's cuty. This was Buzz's way of life, carefree a happy-go-lucky fellow. "Cool, man, cool!" Chinchiri answered hin vaguely like he was playing way-out jazz. Then he continued to say "Heck of a night, nan heck of a night!" Chinchiri looked upset. "Well, what happened you aiu't get in no trpuble; I knows you like to say things and faint sensible to say everything, nobody aint fire a gun after you in the dark, they ain't —" This tine Buzz, Chinchiri 's good friend, deep down in a great flusteration fully concerned about Chinchiri.

nNDHAHD ISLANDS' OPINION SATUBIIAY M&B. 14, 1964 DEPUTY (Continued from page l) do ray very best." Mr. Mathew went to Aruba over 1 15 years ago as a fourth class teacher and was first elected to the islandcouncil of Aruba on the P.P.A.rlist in 1955 Over the years he has always nade it a point of duty to help Windward Islanders re-^ siding in Aruba, regardless of their political conviction. His willingness to help those in need add in trouble has become so wellknown, that now, not only Windward Is landers but also, Arubans, Curacao"eans and others; whenever in difficulties, seek the assistance of 'Mat" which he always readily gives It is a very coonan natter for him to pay; waterbiils, lightbills etc. for persons who have been unable to pay these bills themselves, so that all the money which he receives as a member of the Staten (and even more) is JUS ed. to help others. The new Deputy of Aruba is the last of eight children of Mr. and Mrs. Abraham Mathew (both deceased) of Sucker Garden and was born on February 26, 1928 After completing the St. Joseph College at Philipsburg, he attended Normal School. After graduating as a 4th. class teacher, he was appointed as a teacher of the 3rd. grade at the Oranjoschool-in Philipsburg. In 1948 he went to Aruba and was asigned as a teacher at the Prince Berhardschool in San Nicolas. In 1958-Mr. Mathew was" transferred to the Court Recorder's Office in Oranjestad with the rank of Adjunct Connies and was later appointed as substitute Court Recorder. After his election to the Staten (Legislative Council) qf the Netherlands Antilles in 1962 it became necessary for him to be away from.his jen to attend Staten meetings at Curacao he was then transferred to the Government Adginistrative Office at San Nicolas where he has become a most efficient government official'. Mr. Mathew joined the ranks of the P.P. A. in 1951 and in 1954 his name was placed on the P.P.A.-list for the Staten election In 1955 he was elected as a member of the islandcouncil of Aruba on the P.PJ1.list His strong sense of service to his constituents over the years has made him a most popular popular political fugure in Aruba and a great art et to his party (the P.PJ1.) During ^;he Staten election in 1962 he got 158V prefenential votes, a feat which wai only surpassed in hi8 par|y, by the party Leader, the late Juancho Yrausquin and outside of the F*P.A only by Pelipito B„ Troup when he was still leader of the UNA, and in the A.V>i only by Henny Earn and after his death by his son Shon A. EmaU. Mr. Mathew is happily married for over ten years to the former Miss Elise Legrand, a most gracious lady from French Quarter, St. Martin and they have one son. "Mat" recently told our Editor: *Vy greatest sibition is to erve my people, and se^rve then well 1 As Deputy of Aruba, Mr. Mathew will undoubtedly have a chance to serve his people The Windward Islands' Opinion congratulates him and wishes him much success in his new job* =0= ELECTRICITY FOR ST.

Ant. — Printers: The People's Printery Tanarindesteeg N*8 Philipsburg EDITORIAL Dear readers, V The character CHINCHIRI has undoubtedly had your attention during these two nonths. Runours have reached our ears that this personality is rapidly becoming controversial. Since the main character "CHINCHIRI" is "hrouded in a great deal of r^stery Our Editor is incessantly plaqued with questions, pertaining to hit intentity. "'.JIIO IS HE?" Our mentality here in St. Maarten is such that it is more concerned with persons than with personalistic conditions, situations. We do not believe that CIIINGIMI is preoccupied with personalities: As far as we have understood hin, it is our opinion that he is frank about certain conditions e.g. in his first "action" (allow us tc tern his every appearance "an action") he was rather brief in exposing the relationship between St. Maarten and; the Dutchman here who is usually a teacher; his ignorance of the Futch language. This gives us an idea about his age. We don't believe hin to be very old. We do ht,pe he touches this aspect of our Society again sonetipe Then last week as we try to interpret we believe to imp derstand bin putting forth the "Absurdity of fear". Showing Crow's fear as an i naginary thing. After tunning all that distance Crow cane to realize his fear had no serious ground. "People are afraid of their shadow," of themselves. To us it was a stinulance to find out what we are afraid of. Are there really scarecrows about the place to keep us out of certain fields? Let us search ours selves. Perhaps our fear is as rediculous as Crow's. Here again we percsive that
