Rear Admiral Greer, USN
Here On 4-Day Visit

The Admiral arrived by
U. S. Navy plane 10.30
Wednesday morning from
Puerto Rico. An hour after
arrival he paid an official
call on General Antoine Le-
velt, Commander-in-Chief of
the Haitian Army. In the
afternoon Admiral and Mrs.
Greer lunched with Ambas-
sador and Mrs. Travers at
the Embassy residence in
Thursday evening they at-
tended a buffet dinner offer-
ed by Brigadier General and
Madame Levelt at their re-

occasion of the 1st birthday
of the- Magloire administra-
tion. Friday evening Chief
of the U.S. Naval Mission
to Haiti and Mrs. Winters
offered a dinner in the visi-
tors honour at their resi-
dence on Mont Joli.

Yesterday morning the
Admiral'and Mrs. Greer and
Aide Miller boarded their
plane and returned to San
Juan from all reports
their 4-day stay here at the
Ibo Lele was a most pleasant

and after a good spell of
camp duties was transferred
to the Institute of Inter
American Affairs and sent to
Panama in April of '43 on
his first post of duty. In
November he was transfer-
red to the Dominican Re-
public where he took com-
mand of the Health and Sani

work battling that tropical
pnpmv Malaria. During his
four years in our neiahbor-

Caldwell brought along
an important acquisition
from Venezuela ... a Ibride,

Wi h all these signs of
progress -it's' no wonder the
entire riatign took a holiday
December 6th to observe
-the inauguration'day of their
Chief of State. But. for the
President, IMadame Magloire
and members of the official
family the holidays meant
a busy round of activities.
The fete was officially
opened with a 21 .gun can-
non salute *from Fort Na-
tional. .H* s Excellency Pre-
sident Maglodie, resplendent
in his khaki uniform, and
")adame Magloire, -ressed
"in black, left the Palace for
the restored Port-au-Prince
Cathedral accompanied by
top government and military
officials. They were met by
the Archbishop of Port-au-
:'Prince, Monseignor Le Gou-
.,aze, to whom the President
..*presented the keys to the
Cathedral where a Te Deum
-was offered.
The Presidental party then
.'-proceeded to St. Martin for
c'the dedication of the Work-
"er's City, an important mile-
ristone in the history of the
Ri.Haitian laborer. The dedica-
Ition plaque was unveiled at

The President then moved
cn' to the St. Martin Canteen
which was blessed by the'
Archbishop. Following a se-
ries of short speeches refresh-
ments were served.
The Chief of State made
a brief inspection of the road'
paving project on the Port-
au-Prince to. Cap Haitien
route. Then his party con-
tinued on to La'Saline where
a second Worker's City is
under construction.
Madame Magloire looked
on with pride as the Arch-
bishop blessed the new Nur-
sery that is so close to her
heart. The speech making
was held up a second by an
unfortunate gentleman who
had forgotten his glasses and
was forced to hand his notes
to someone else to read.

ing by visits to other public
works projects modernizing

Cadillac, the gift of Shasa.
The afternoon activities
were opened with the inau-

turned out for the inaugura-

About Those Chickens
--- Note -..

Following the publication
of the ,visit to Haiti's new
modern chicken farm-, last
week we received more than
a score of enquiries about
whether or nor the said
chickenss, would be ready
in time to i grace the Xmas
dinner table. We called up
Mrs. Jean Desqueron at her
farm in Petionville, a short.
distance from Cabane Chou-'
"' coune, and asked her the
same question.
Readers, the chickenfarm
proprietress announces that
500 chicks are in the fatten-
ing. stage and she hopes that
they'll be ready for Xmas.

"-.itight I entered the
Turgeau Tennis Club, and,
while heading for the bar,
noticed a lovely young girl
coming towards me, her lit-
tie feet tripping lightly over
the floor, like the feet of a
little fawn tripping lightly
over the greensward, in one
of the parks the British
aristocracy have established
for their little fawns.
Near me she stopped. I
stopped. On her face was a
wistful expression. I couldn't
see my own face, but I knew
that it bore a noble expres-
sion, because my thoughts
were-pure. She smiled and
spoke in a clear, thrilling
voice. Every eye in the
room turned upon us.. We
made a charming couple.

,Yes, -I replied.
aOh! Mr. Grant,, she

As simple can be.

He's refined, you see.

looks almost normal. But
when you see him in bathing
trunks, as I did the other
day at the beach, you real-
-ize that there is practically
nothing to the man except a
few bones and a brain.
While we were talking,
Armand (Fatty) Malbranche
ambled over, and, scrutiniz-
ing Marcel carefully, said :
"Good heavens, Mvarcel, to

This decision to rake air
transportation out of the
luxury classification was
first voiced by Mr. Trippe
eight years ago. He put it
into effect in PAA's Latin
American Division in 1948
- long enough ago to de-
monstrate !its practicabilityy.

There were several pos-
sible areas of economizing,
but there would be no com-
promise with safety, Mr.
Trippe decreed. Instead,
more seats were added and
frills eliminated.
So, on September 24, 1948
the trail-blazing tourist-type
service began, with one
flight each way daily. In less
than three years, PAA's traf-
.fic over the route' was po
heavy that the tourist fare
was cut to 64 dollars, or 4
cents a mile, and the regular
Clinper fare was reduced to-

For the same eight months

Mr. Trippe had no oppor-

practice until after the war,
when the necessary equip-

vel restrictions had been
lifted, 'but he did reduce
fares to Latin America four
times after. V-J Day..

there would be less chance
of. plane passengers being
mrWooned during the rainy
'season. Tourist officials also
seem to be handicapped by a
lack of transportation and
other facilities in seeing to
the comforts of their inco-
ming visitors.
Your reporter was one of
the millions of sightseers
who journeyed .down Ireland
for the rather doubtful plea-
sure of hanging by his
heels and kissing the Blar-
qey Stone. Yet -the pilgri-
mage to the unpreposses-
sing castle has lured travel-
lers from all over the world,
largely because the Irish ma-
ke the most of their history
and colourful legends.
The Citadelle is not just
the remnants of an interes-
ting bit of folklore. It is a
shrine ... a monument to
man's ability to rise form
We feel that the guides
taking visitors through the
massive stronghold of King:
Christophe should' n a k e
those ruins come to life. The
,public loves to hear the col-
ourful and incredible history
of the man who dared to
found a kingdom.
The hindrance to any
-tourist trade is often the
conduct and fares changed by
overwise taxi drivers. The
taxi rate for the twenty min
ute trip from the Cap to Mi-
lot is 12 dollars for three
persons. If there are more
passengers the charge is 4
dollars per person. The fee
can be partially explained
by the fact that the driver
must wait in Milot for six
hours before the return to
the Cap. The tourism au-
Sthorities in' the Cap realize
that.'such rates are apt to
handicap, their efforts in
building the tourist trade
and tentative plans are un-

There is without a doubt
need for greater and more
widespread publicity both
here and abroad to advertise
the virtues and attractions of
the North.
If all the narrow streets
of the Cap were paved, it
would not only lead to com-
fort for the local populace
but assist commerce etc. and
add beauty which would
liken the ,Cap, to one of
those quaint European towns
beloved by the foreign tour-

you had better have a car

Madame de Catalogne is
building a casino in her spa-
cious hotel grounds, which
is to be ready at the end of
this month and is to include
a dance floor and private

It is certainly time to drop
all petty jealousies ... real-
ize the Cap's value as the
major tourist attraction in
the Republic. No matter
whether you like or dislike
the tourist trade ... it's
worth remembering the tour
ist means dollars ... Miami,
Honolulu, and score of other
towns were built on tourist
dollars. A country with an
economy such as ours has
vital need of those dollars.
The work being done now
and the work to be done in
the future at the Cap as in
other parts of the Republic
will pay off in those dollars
... and subsequently the
standard of living will com-
mence its steady climb, up-

It's remarkable to look
back on it all and clearly
*see that the Fathers of. the
Republic, the men n who
broke the chains of slavery
... are instrumental today in
lifting their sons from the
quadmire of poverty.
