won fame as a symphoai
conductor in the Capitals o

begun more than 10 year
ago when he met a young
Haitian Doctor, Jacques Co

good friend.
Last Wednesday in th(
Bucy home of Jacques an
his wife, Rudolph Dumb
explained his hopes to t
press and told why he fel
they would be realize.
,An independent coun
try,., said he, must have ,
symphonic orchestra and
would be proud to create
one in Haiti, the country:
Jove so much.",
He has already held.aud
tions with la Musique d
Palais and Haitian artist
who gathered at the home
M. Emmanuel Miot, where
he was particularly moved
by the voice of Mile Guil|
baud. The famous Negr|
conductor predicted with the
talent already on hand he
would soon be able to offU
his first concert as p
that Haiti can make heb
mark in serious music as shea
has in the other arts.
In fact, Dr. Dumbai
dreams of a Haitian aever

,The amount of talent here,

For many years my father
was valet de chambre to Rud
yard Klipling. Some people
used to say that he wrote all
Kliplings stories. My father
told me that this was nor
true; he outlined the stories,
but Kliping did the actual
writing.
His principal duties were
to bache Rudyard before
putting him to bed at night
and to curl ahd comb his
mustache every morning.
Rudyard was very proud of
his mustache, and it was on
account of it that my fa-
ther's services with Klipling
were terminated, as my fa-
ther put it. What he meant
was that he got fired.


One morning when he was
not feeling very well he over
heated the curling iron and
.....i burned off one end of that
precious mustache. My fa-
ther said`that Kliping was a
sight for weeks after, until
,it grew out again. Personal-
ly, I don't think that he
could have looked much
worse that the average Vic-
torian, what with all that
shrubbery they grew on their
faces and the backs of their
$6.00 necks- They were a pecu-
$7.00 liar lot.
00 up
$2.00 Rudyard used to smoke
his pipe in his bath while
ty of my father was scrubbing
him with a floor brush. At
those times he used to tell
UITS my father stories. I am go-
ing to tell you one. I don't
know whether or not it was
original with Klipling or
not. All I know is that I
did not make it up, and for
it I refuse to accept any re-
sponsibility. It's a haunting
thing, which has lived long
in my memory.

MELODY IN F
i
In spite of what has been
written to the contrary King a
Arthu'r did have a son by
Guinevere, but they refused 1
to permit historians to men-
Lion him because he was a c
midget and never grew tall- r
.er than six hands and a '
thumb. Small tho he was, E
he had a brave heart and a t
keen mind, so on his twenty I
first birti.day, King Arthur 'K
made him a Knight of the
Round 'Table, dubbing him
Sir Atom, '

There was not a horse in c
the kingdom small enough e
for him to bestride, so they t
mounted him on a shaggy
dog; and with his wee lance r
at rest on his miniature P
shield on arm. Sir Atom rt
rode chivalrously forth look
ing for trouble. He slew dra- tl


gon flies that were bothering
little girls, and skewed mania
a mouse that had a fair dam
sel at bay.

One winter evening, hav
ing strayed far from the
castle. Sir Atom was over
taken by a blizzard- Rain
hail, sleet and snow assailed
the doughty little knight.
His visor froze shut. But fot
hours the sturdy little dog
plowed through the froz-n
drifts until at last they came
in sight of an Inn, the sign
over the door bearing the
strange name 'Ibo Lele.-
Now Sir Atom was clair-
voyant, and could see into
the future. ,What witchery
is this?, he asked himself.
"Columbus has ct yet dis-
covered Hait:, and Robert
Baussan won'- be born fot
yet a thousand years. Would
that Merlin could see this
enchantment and cast a
counter spel ,,

Sir Atom was afraid, but
his situation was desperate.
Unless he found shelter he
and his dog would perish in
the storm. Summoning al!
his courage he advanced
through 'the great door of
the hostelry. Entering the
lobby. he saw a little man
with an elfish face dozing at
a table littered with empty
bottles, who looked up in ter
ror to see the dog, studded
with icicles, bearing the mid
get knight across the floor.
The dog's eyes glowed be-
neath frozen brows. His ton-
gue lolled to the floor. His
feet bled.

With difficulty the knight
raised his visor. ,"Landlord,,,
he said, "a goodly meal and.
odgings for the night for
me and my steed.,
,"Alas." said the little
nan, clWe can give you nei-
her: The larder is empty
nd the house is full. Ar-
mand Malbranche and the
andlord are sleeping on the
illiard talbe. No more room
n that. Robert Baussan and
he Lorraine Trio are sleep-
ncg- on the 'grand piano.
:very bed is taken, and that'
w'ice over. You should
ave made reservations. Sir
Knightt)

Sir Atom drooped deject-
dly on his steed and dug
is small spurs into the ani-
nal's flanks- The wind howl
d at the door, the sleet rat-
ted at the window panes,
%ith an almost human groan
he dog lifted his bloody
aws in slow trek to the por-
al.
"Nay, wait), cried the lit-
e man suddenly. "Tarry,


WISE and OTHERWISE
By T. J. Grant


Sir Knight. You shall have;.
my bed, for heaven knows,-.
I wouldn't send a knight out
on a dog like this."
,Je suis Sir Atom,, said
Sthe midget, dropping into
SFrench. which as every one
knows was the language
used by the Knights of the
Rodnd Table among them-
selves. ,Vous etes gentil.,
The little man was still a
little befuddled by the con-
tents of the empty 'bottles on
the table. ,Yes,- he replied,
,That's me. Gentil. But call
me Marcel, and just make
yourself at 'ome.

A wild and piercing
* shriek sounded through the
Slobby, there was a blinding
flash of light, and suddenly
Sir Atom found himself sit-
I ting on the dirt floor of the'
humble cottage of one of his
Father's serfs. He was in
his underwear. His armour,
h is shield and his lance had
vanished.
t Verily,, he thought ca
greater magician than Mer-
lin has been at work here
tonight,,.

The End.
Last year I was sitting in
Sthe living room of Marcel
Gentil's house when I no-
ticed an exquisitely chiselled
miniature suit of armour on a
table in a corner. On the left
arm was a tiny shield, a lit-
tle lance couchant in tle-
right gauntlet. cWhere did
you get that?,, I asked Mar-
cel.

,That's a strange thing,
Tommy,, he replied. aWe
found it in the living room
one morning. We advertis-
ed in the papers for the
owner, but nobody ever
claimed it!, If ever you visit
Marcel, ask him to show it
,to you.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17th


EDITOR BLAKE'S SUMMING UP
OF PRESENT DAY HAITI


(Conti.inued from Page 1)

article follow.

Salute To Haiti
Touissant Louverture, ar-
chitect of Haitian liberty,
Jacques Dessalines and Alex.
andre Petion, the liberators,
all had the vision of a free,
independent and prosperous
nation. Henri Christophe
had another kind of vision;
he would replace Frcnch
rule with his own brand and
keep his country free. But
Christophe, .able administra-
,tor and iron-willed soldier,
had a hard time convincing
his people that freedom im-
posed harder burdens than
slavery.
Down the line of Presi-
dents the vision flickered,
sometimes glowing brightly.
sometimes almost fading out
completely. The flicker was
faintest in 1950...
Haiti needed a new type.
of leader, a man whose per-
sonality, integrity and abil-
ity could,not only recapture
the vision but set it glowing
brightly for all of Haiti's
four million people ...
In Colonel Paul Magloire
(Haiti's first popularly elect-
ed president) the Haitian
people saw the resurrection
of the spirits of the gallant
and illusrr;ous forefathers
who established the first and
indenondent Povernment in
the Western Hemisphere.

Miracles And Instruments

Not withstanding his won
derful personality, Magloire
is no miracle man. 'But mi-
racles are being worked in
Haiti today. Chief instru-
ments are the deew spirit of
d* l


unity and new desire for a
better way of life which is
spreading over the Haitian
masses like the rays of a
morning sun.
Another is what may be
termed a (national conspir-
acyn to support the Presi-
dent's development p r o-
gramme. This -is very noti-
ceable in the men around
him. They are mostly young
men, with a sprinkling of
veterans carried over from
several past administrations,
possessing and supplying
the necessary balance that
rtems from maturity and ex-
perience, which together pro
duce tolerance in the cul-
tured human being.
Yet another instrument is
the popularity of the army
with the people. Haitian pea
sants no longer regard the
army as a hateful tool of the
President and the elites, bur
as a necessary safeguard of
internal peace and when ne-
cessary a protector of Hai-
tian soil from neighbours
with craft), acquisitive ideas.

Peasants Are People'
Today, Haitian official-
dom and, elites no longer
look upon the peasants as
mere voodoo worshipping'
rabble, but as humans to be
educated up to the plane
where they may better play
their part in the gigantic pro
gramme of development a-
head.
Educated Haitians lully
realize now more than ever
that a country with a hand-
ful of elites psychologically
and spiritually 'miles apart
from the teeming millions
who bear the brunt of the
burdens, is a mockery to
good government, an invita-
.


tion to exploitation by revo-
lution. Time and the ex-
perience of other lands have
brought it home to them
that where there is wide-
spread poverty and neglect,
Communism finds fertile
breeding ground.
With these realizations,
Haitians have chosen the one
man who symbolizes their
will to lift their country out
of the dust. In his first year
in office, he has driven
many solid supporting pins
into the wobbly economic
understructure.
As a result, America,
which almost gave up Haiti
as a bad bet, is once more in-
terested in handing out sub-
stantial help. Magloire's pro
gramme calls for millions of
dollars in expenditure. Edu-
cation and Health, Agricul-
ture and Industrial Develop-
ment all run parallel because
they interweave and are the
umbrellas which all other
developments must be shad-
ed...
Today in Port-au-Prince,
Haiti's sprawling, mountain
shaded Capital, there is no
longer that old languid in-
difference. Men move pur-
posefully about their busi-
ness, not hurrying to cash in
on a sky-riding boom, but to
get aboard the prosperity
train that Magloire and Co.
are carefully assembling, a
train with a lone and suc-
cessful journey ahead...

At .First- Hand

As the President's guest
for a week in December, 'I
,saw all these signs, portents
and accomplishments at first
hand. My interpretation of
them was neither coloured
nor influenced by the fact
that I was a guest. I witness-
ed the opening of the 210-
unit workers housing pro-
ject near Potr-au-Prlince,
when the President himself
handed out the door keys to
some of'the occupants, and
unlocked the door of the
first house.
I saw the President cut-
ting through pea-soup-thick
crowds that brushed his
armed bodyguards aside so
as to touch hiui or kiss Ma-
dame Magloir&e'. black-glov-
ed hand. Their thunderous
aVive Magloire, ringing
from Port-au-Prince, to Aux
Cayes, to Cap Haitien. to
Jeremie, and across the
mountains to Gonaive, rang
true and devoted. It made


my heart throb with pride.
I caught enough of con-
versations among the elite
and' felt out enough other
Haitians and non-Haitians
*o detect that to a man (and
women) they pin their hopes
on Paul Magloire because
they adore the soldier with
:he kingly manners, easy dig
n;f;ed air and warm flashing
smile...

First Class Negroes

Negroes the world over,
victims of every form of
schism and prejuice invent-
ed by mei to keep other men
down, have long wondered
where in the rqodern world
they may find their race at
its best. Visitors to Haiti
today know such a place.
There they see the Negro at
his regal and cultured best,
the equal of all men, the in-
ferior of none...

ACCLAIM FOR MEXICAN
BOY'S CHOIR

Wednesday night's Con-
cert at the Theatre de Ver-
dure marked the final per-
formance of,the ,L'ofeon

And niusic lovers regretful-*
ly bid farewell to the charm
ing boys choir which con-

The, Mexican youngsters
gladdened the hearts of Pre-
sident and Madame Ma-

ceremony Feb. 7.
Minister Jules Domond
thanked SCIPA for its work
done with an earnest desire
to fulfill the true needs of
the Haitian peasants. And
then, speaking in Creole, he
addressed the local farmers
present, asking them to ex-
,tend their organization of
farm cooperatives in order to
benefit from the facilities
the government put at their
disposal by the.creation of
the Agricultural Bank.
Yes, a bright ray of hope
has come to the hard-work-

The current tour, which
will take them on to Europe,
is the third the Mexican
Child's Choir has made. It
was formed six years ago in
Mexico City with children
from all walks of life. They
range in age from 7 -to 14,
and, of necessity, nust be re
placed quite often because of
voices that change from an
angelic, soprano to a husky

In between tours throu.eb-

at a special school that gives

Press To Aid Campaign
Against Illiteracy
(Conitined from Page 1)

M. L6lio Faublas, director
of Adult Education, sec
things off when he deplored
the independent way the La-
bour Department was con-
ducting its anti illiteracy
fight. Deputy Fignole sec-
onded Faublas in his claim
that teaching adults to read
arid write should be a job
carried out by the Depart-
ment of National Education.
M. Colimon, chief of the
adult education section of
,the Department of Labour
hastily drew a picture of the
work his staff had accom-
plished. With his well-
known tact'M. Leon Laleau,
President of the UNESCO
commission, got the debate
back on more even ground.

But other sharp issues
arose: Deputy Rossini Pierre
Louis 'charged that the bud-
get set aside for the adult
education campaign was
laughablele, and called for
the budget to be doubled, at
the very least.

The Director-General of
National Education immedi-
ately countered by saying


that the government made
educational development a
major plank in its Five Year
Programme. And for proot.
he announced that the Guv-
vrnment has plans ready to
submit to the next session ot
the legislature which would
intensify t he educational
campaign throughout the
country. Deputies Fignole
and Pierre-Louis promised
to support the bill when it
