STOP Watering
The Milk Please

Early Wednesday morning
your reporter came upon an
unfamiliar scene ... street
merchants on the Rue du
Centre were pouring large
containers of milk down the
gutter in front of the Zanzi-
bar Hotel. Upon investiga-
*ti.cn we soon learned the
reason. Inspector Gerard
Decarus of the Sanitary De-
partment was present with a
,mall glass tester. When he
found the vendors had add-
id water to their wares to
nrrease the quantity while
killing the quality, he con-

His father had dropped dead

It was a poignant ending

and gaiety.

King and his Queens descen-
ded from their chariots as
whirling dancers, acrobats

for the crowd thronging the

Chief of State congratulated
each in turn. Then with a
big smile and a hearty joke,
the President handed the
King his prize ... an open
box containing Barbancourt
Rhum nestling beside a bot-
tle of Champagne.
The King thanked Colonel
Magloire for the makings of
his ,,Victory Bomboche" and
started to clianb on his throne
when a young army officer
.stepped up, spoke a few
words to the President, then
quietly told the King the
'ragic news ... his father had
iust died.
Friends escorted the young
monarch home and the Par-
ade continued without him.

;he show went on.
The Paraders filled the
Bizoton Road with the sound
of .revelry, drawing up be-
fore the Coast Guard Head-
quartens where Captain Ace's
gaily lit yacht awaited them.
The Queens, their atten-
dants and other masquerad-
ers climbed aboard for the
Royal Cruise to the Exposi-
tion dock with cruisers and
several coastal steamships
providing the marine escort.
' They debarked in 'the
glare of a big search light
before the statue of Christo-
pher Columbus and were
cheered by one of the largest
crowds ever to gather on
;the waterfront. Then while
the three aldermen toasted
the Queens in the Salon of
the Hotel de Ville, the De-
vil Chariot of the absent
king was burnt in the tradi-
v'onal AUTODAFE.
The final ceremony of the
Mardi Gras seemed to suffer
from .some lack of organiza-
tion which led to consider-
able criticisms of its earlier
functions. The crowds which
gathered for the opening
Parade on Sunday had diffi-
culty learning.just where the
line of march would start
and when. When the Parad-
ers did appear, there were
long breaks between floats
and, at times, sudden tie-ups
which halted their progress
altogether. But these prob-
lems were ironed our later
to a great extent.
The main criticism of the
Carnival was directed at the


lack of floats sponsored by
business and commercial
houses. However those who
did enter used much origin--
ality and foresight ... so
much so that it will be dif-
ficult for the judges to award


the Edelite's newv loving cup
for the best business-house
entry. The choice lies among
four outstanding floats, those
,sponsored by Good-Year
Tires. Camay Soap, Tam-

cumstances managed to keep

As the Haiti Sun went to
press, it had still received no
announcement from the Car-
ni.val committee on the iden
tity ot the -prizewinning

med groups 'in the Mardi
Gras parade. Therefore the

The beauty of the Queens
as well as the elaborateness
of their chariots drew much
praise from visiting journal-
ists and tourists who will re-
turn to their home countries
to spread the fame of the
Haitian Mardi Gras.
This year more than an)
other brought out the im
portance of the Carnival, t
the Tourist Industry. It is
(fortunate that. the visitors
seemed by and large 'to be
well-pleased with the.eolouw
Fgnhd gaiety of the festivities
The Edelite took consider
able precautions to.remove
elements that might prove
offensive t6 the eves of visi-
tors. And it is, reasonable
to believe that with the pro
per publicity campaign, the
port-au- Pince'-'Mardi Gras
may some day draw as many
tourists as the famous carni
vals in New Orleans, Hava-
na' and Rio de Janeiro.
Colouk-fully costumed gro-
ups of masqueraders on foot
did much to assure the ap-
p3reciation of tourists and
local people alike. The pe-
rernnial Ciribbean Indian
group is always popular,
especially among the camera

mention... as well as the

nle... their irrepressible

tablishment) by all' accounts
you are going to be very
thirsty. Will it then be any
satisfaction- to you to know
that the corpse you left be-
hind is probably just as dry
as you are? Not if what I
hear is tnle. You get no
satisfaction of any nature
down there.
If they bury you in Haiti,
however that part about
being dry would not apply.
The soil is too humid here.
Your mummy wouldn't
keep. It would get moldy,
. then musty, and finally be-
come a liquefacientr mess,
Can you imagine yourself in
"that condition? If so, there
is something wrong with
you.


S If you are the kind of per-
_ son I am, you will spend
your money now and get
some enjoyment out of it, in-
stead of saving it like a dum-
S m so that someone. can
mAke a mummy out of you
after you are dead.
If you know anything
about my style of writing,
'ou knew that all this pre-
lude is iust something to get
you in the mood to enioy the
story I am going to tell you.

"If You go to Haiti!"


by Gerard Riviere

Shaking hands in the Ca-
ribbean Sea with Cuba,
Puerto Rico, and Jamaica,
two 'hours' flight from
Miami, Florida,-the Island of
Haiti is divided into two in-
dependent republics, the Re-
public of Haiti on its west
side and the Dominican Re-
public on its east side.
Haiti was the first land
discovered by Christopher
SColumbus when he was try-
ing to find a new way by
the west to go to India. In
landing in Haiti, on Decem-
ber 6, 1492, at the time of
his first trip Columbus
thought .he was in India.
Sthat is why today Haiti and
Small the neighbouring islands
are called mte West Indies.
Columbus found the is-
land so beautiful that, as his
trip was financed by the
Queen of Spain, Isabelle La
'Catholique. he called it His-
paniola, which means Little
Spain. Later the island adopt
ed the name of Haiti, which
is just a little different from
.the name given to it by the
-Indians living there at the
time of discovery. I1 want
'to say Hagri. an Indian word
which means covered of
mountains.,,
Today the 148-.year-old in
Dependent Republic of Haiti,
,'the second oldest republic of
the Western Hemisphere,
has an area of'28,000 square
kilometers and a population
of about 3,500,060 people.
The national language is
"French. However. if' you go
to Haiti. you will hear peo-
pie speaking also what we
call a dalect, creole, which
'is a kind of badly spoken

French.
The capital of Haiti,
where I live, is Port-au-

If you go to Haiti, you
will marvel at its sunny

go to Port-au-Prince, you
will enjoy dancing to the
rhythm of Latin American
music, especially to the Me-

you know has a new 15-

the El Rancho as well as

Their optimism doesn't
seem to be misguided. PAA
reports the outlook for the
coming months is good.
Both hotel operators and
tour officials report consid-
erably more advance book-
ings for March and April
than last season. And even
though the average stay of
the winter visitor in Haiti
is around three days. most
of them leave.with the firm
'intention of returning, an-
other season to stay longer.

backbone of a sound tourist
