    GUARANTEES FROM DUTCH GOVERNMENT INCLUDE SALARY REVISIONS, ALLOWANCES, COMPENSATIONS AND OTHER EMOLUMENTS - BUT DESPITE THESE AND THE ASSURANCE OF QUEEN JULIANA IN HER SPEECH AT THE YEARLY INAUGURAL OF THE STATES GENERAL ON SEPTEMBER 19TH - THE EURASIANS ARE NOT PREPARED TO TAKE THEIR CHANCES IN A LOCALLY ADMINISTERED COLONY OF DOUBTFUL ECONOMY.

    THE NETHERLANDS GOVERNMENT INFORMED THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITED NATIONS SEPTEMBER 26TH THAT IT WAS PREPARED TO BRING THE TERRITORY AND ITS DEVELOPMENT UNDER "THE ACTIVE SUPERVISION" OF THE UNITED NATIONS, AND WAS WILLING TO ACCEPT A DECISION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY WHICH "CLEARLY GUARANTEES THE RIGHT OF SELF-DETERMINATION OF THE POPULATION."
    THE NETHERLANDS, IT ALSO STATED, WAS PREPARED TO RELINQUISH SOVEREIGNTY, BUT TO CONTINUE ITS FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION FOR DEVELOPMENT ON THE PRESENT OF ABOUT GBP10,710,000 PER YEAR.
