The gang arrived... on Monday March 19,'1962. Very many automobiles and trucks filled with school-children, Government workers and people from Angullla and the French Part of our island had -driven to the airport to welcome these gentlemen...... The Island Government employees and workers were given' the half day off for this purpose. However, the crowd although numerically fairly large only consisted of about 60 voters. The reception was quite cold, so cold that Mr. Kroon who had. planned before hand to render ah address upon his arrival at the airport changed his mind about this and held his piece, %Â .,.The crowd at the airport was quite orderly and did not molest in any way the leaders of w.I.P.p. who were also present at the airport to see their, leader Mr, H_.I, Lopes off to.

J Â• ISLANDS* OPINION SATURDAY MfJl C H 31> 1962 TO THE PEOPIE OF SAM, LIVING IN ARUDA Dear Friends; Words indeed c annot express our great joy to bring to you the glad tidings.of the ground-breaking day for the air-* strip at Flatpoint on M*r c h 22, 1962. It was indeed a shane that the press was not represented, so that you c cn31d have $ad a full report of what took pla c e. At about 10.15 a.m. three helicopters fron H.M.S. "Karel-Do an you inagine arl on a stand rediruling his own flesh and blood for lathew aid Wathey? Do you know that Henry Every and 0 arl Anslijn are f iret^ousins ? Just let your mind wander a little and you will understand what' he would do you, Â£ you ever rossed hin, arl pronised Mr* Every (not pronised, de lared in a pan*phlet that he would not be running in the Windward Islands be c ause of c orruptian) and now he is oh a podiun c alling his own "flesh and blood" "Dernadette" and"Joan Of Ark". Friends, are you Christians? an you inagine a nan of de eny r getting on a politi al podiun in a publi .meeting and rediSiling the Holy Saints? Do you think the blessing of God c an be upon su c h a nan? The Lord allows you to go so far and then he in sane rysterious way brings you to a stop. I c ant inagine one "de c ent ^lristian minded person] supporting a party with a person like W. iii it or even supporting it. In the Holy S ripture it is written : "Tou c h not God*s anointed", yet sone-_ thing as low as a W^ baa the brass Ji in his f a c e to stand and r6diule than, by c onparing then with nan on this earth. Has this man lost the reason of his senseS? He has even c alled us at Saba kangoroosj grasshoppers and' what not, rcnenber 1Jhey are your fathers, nothers, brothers, Bisters and so on, whone he is c alling su h names j and yet you are supporting hin. He also stated in a publi* 5 meeting (without exception) that all the young nen in Saba, wore still wearing dypers and that they needed their nothersl milk. Friends do you realize what arl means; he would like to be the mother of all the young men in Saba and to feed them. We an*t ex c ept hin be c ause we are not sure what kind of a bottle he would offer us", perhaps a bottle of ogna Now be'aware of wolves'in sheep's c lothing, be c ause this W.. is surely one of them. I shall be ba k again.. Yours truly A Sabian not a Traitor. Â•
