In the old days it was the

such charity was negligible

back cake."
An art career was some-
thing undreamed of for Ro-
bert St. Brice who was born
in Petionville 56 years ago,
the son of a farm hand. He
learned a useful trade and
at the age of 29 married his
sweetheart, Anna She is
now a gentle old lady who
keeps the small boutique in


















Pnrintive St. Brice

front of the St. Brices house,
a boutique that features her
husband's excellent baked
goods.
During most of his mar-
ried life' Robert St. Brices
worker as cook and- baker
for a Kentuckian named'Jes-
sie Craddock, who died in
1949.

Ten years ago the St.
Brices savings went into the
purchase of a home ... a
quaint wooden two-storey
'house in Bizoton that they
could afford only because it
was reported to be haunted.
Robert St. Brice found it
haunted all right ... with
good luck. Maybe the luck
had something to do with
the Welcome on the mat.
An A m:rican poet Wilmer
Lucas turned our many a
verse while living under its
roof.
Actor William Major was'
broke and homeless until St.
Brice took him in as a mem-
ber of the family. But his
luckiest day came when an
American negro merchant
seaman came to his door in
1948 and asked if there was
, room for renrt Alex John
was no ordinary man of the
sea. He was a good pianist,
an avid reader and an earn-
est painter. Since his parents
had originally come from St.


iLucia, he remembered Cre-
ole from his childhood days
and soon there were no bar-
riers of communication be-
tween the American and his
landlord.
One day while Alex John
was working on a canvas,
he noticed his landlord
standing in the doorway.
<,Heren, he said. (,you might
as well keep yourself busy.,,
And he thrust a wax crayon
into St. Brice's hand.
In no time the landlord
was busier than his tenant
creating pictures with ena-
mel on prepared cardboard.
Alex John turned from teach
er to pupil and pow insists
fhat hi,tlandlord is the great
estAtivi g painter in. Haiti.
Dewitj..Peters also.was en-
thsjic over the-St. Brice
efforts which feature a lav-
ish use of colour stippled on
with fast strokes some
from the point of the paint
brush, somewhat reminis-
cent of the French painter
Seurat.
When Anna hears the
sharp. rhymic dabs of the
paint brush, she laughs and
says, (The machine is run-
ning again., At the begin-
ning sha used to sign her
husband's paintings for himh,
but today he carefully draws
his own name. Like so many
of his countrymen, St. Brices'
lack of formal education is
more than made up for hisi
wealth of vision and simple
wisdom. It is because of
that wisdom he is seeing to
it that his children have the
chance to &o to school. Six-
teen-vear-old Francois and
15-A'ear-old Edouard walk
to classes at Toussaint Lou-
verture each' day ... a re-
markable distance. Th;rteen-
vonr-old Marie and 9-year-
"ld Tsserre complete the
Fam;lv onarter.
St. Brice says he owes a
debt of gratitude to Dewitt
Peters who, through the Cen
tre d'Art, marketed many of
his paintings and gave him
much needed encourage-
ment as well.
But he has a special spot
in b:s heart for the young
man who first uncovered his
treasury of talent ... the
man who spent eight years
sailing the seven seas and
finally chose Haiti as his fa-
vourite home.

Alex John has made three
return trips to Our Repub-
lic after his first trip in
1948. He says he fell under
the spell of the voodoo
drums as he listened to them
echoing from hill to hill
and that the fascination for
the rhythm of the tambours
has never left him- He is
also fascinated by the study
of Haiti. its culture and its
people with which he feels a
deep kinship.
Right now Alex is living
at Carrefour, brushing up
on his painting, music and
his French.But as far as his
art work goes, Alex says he
will take a back seat to his
landlord any day.

ALLEGORY FOR AN
EMBASSY


Some weeks ago I devoted
quite a few words in this
Column to the effect that
chance happenings turn the
'thoughts of old men back-
:wards into that dead eon
when the world was a fairer
place to live in, and the fu-
ture was radiant with hope
and filled with promise.
You should have read it.
If you did, and you are-
old, you know now that the
law of compensation is re-
troactive.
If you did, and you are
young, you will learn with
Sthe relentless passage of
time, your enemy, as mine,
That what I wrote was not
poetical fancy, nor was it
merely the mental meander-
-'' ing of a man in the last
stages of senescence.
It was, as you will one
day know, the truth. Like
.what you hear on the Voice
of America broadcasts.
It happens all the time.
Items I have been reading
recently in this and lesser
newspapers have led me far
back along that road I have
00 travelled towards that last
00 eternal night which comes
up to us all. Back to the days
00 when my mother sang to me
the scotch ballads she loved
of so well.
Those days seem near, and
luculent, now in my dotage.
TS My mother sang to me in
the morning, at noontide,
and at evenfall, w''hen she
sat by my bedside, while I
-_ lowlyl. went to sleep. I re-
member her, always, as
Young and' fair, for my mo-
ther was -one of those for-
t unates who never grew old.
She died when I was a child,
in the full flush of her beau-
ty, and youth.,,
In Edinburg, near the
Castle. is a stele upon .which
are graven these lines:
,They shall not Srow old,
As -we who are left grow
nld.
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the
sun,
And in the morning.
We will remember them.,
I remember her, going
about her daily tasks, smil-
ing, serene. I remember her
singing. singing. I remem-
ber her favourite song and
its refrain: ,Bonnie Charlie's&
Back Again.,, Bonnie Prince
Charlie, if you. remember,
beloved of the Scots, who
returned from exile to his,
homeland anA the hearts of
his people.
Since two weeks I seem


to hear her singing this
refrain, over and over again.
Since I have been reading
the items in the papers. But
there is something strange
about it. The low sweet
voice is the same; the 'mel-
ody and the lilt are unchang-
ed. But the words are alter
ed. Of course it is only my
imagination, but the words
I seem to hear are:
"Robert Folsom's back
again.,.
xxx
Hello, Bob. How's every-
body?

she murdered her husband.

SUNDAY, MARCH 16th

NEGRO ACTOR MAKE AUSPICIOUS
FILM DEBUT ,LYDIA BAILEY,
(Continued from Page I)


weighing 225 pounds, Mar-
shall ascended into the hea-
ven of "Green Pasturess in
March, 1951, to become the
,Lord-.
He was only 26, but Marc
Connelly, who had been
searching 16 years for some-
one to play the role in a re-
vival of that Negro spiri-
tual drama, decided that
God, after all, is ageless.
Marshall's impressive phy
sique, his deep lyrical bass
voice and the dignity and
humility he brought to
aGreen Pasturess f o u n d
high favour with the critics,
and Hollywood 'was quick to
sign him.

Striding head and shoul-
ders above everyone else
across the sound stages of
20th Century-Fox, he
brought to life the character
of King Dick, a Haitian pa-
triot, in the dramatization
of aLydia Bailey,. As King
Dick, he plays a native lead"
er of considerable fortitude,
both physically a nd in
thought, who outmanoeuver
ed Napoleon in his gran-
diose plans to establish Hai-
ti an an outpost bastion of
French rule in the New
World.
With both "Green Pas-
turess and "Lydia Bailey,,,
Marshall had to learn to
overcome the handicap of
bfs age to win the roles.
Richard B. Harrison the
aLord, of t h e original
sGreen Pasturess, was 64
when he began the part.
But after Marshall read the
part for Connelly, the pro-
ducer smiled and maid, "I


guess God is ageless,, and
Marshall went on stage with
the role with only his tem-
ples grayed.
The same problem arose
with 'King Dick. Producer
Schermer and Director Ne-
gulesee had in mind an old-
,er man, someone who look-
,ed old enough to thwart a
master schemist like Nalio-
leon.

When 20th Century-Fox
first planned the picture in
1949, the studio's New York
office considered Marshall
but then decided bhgewas too
young. The dignity and-ma-
turity he brought to "Green
Pastures, convinced execu-
tives that he could give
King, Dick the impressive-
ness the part demanded. The
picture was postponed twice
to wait for Marshall to fin-
ish his Broadway stage per-
formance.
Born in Gary, Ind., the
son of Dr. and Mrs. Vareen
Marshall, he .rolled locomo-
tive wheels weighing a half
ton around the steel yards
for 5.80 dollars a day, pick-
ed cherries for 2 dollars a
day and worked as, a hospi-
tal orderly for 17 dollars
every two weeks. After gra-
duating from Roosevelt high
school where he played
tackle on the football team,
he served in the Army dur-
ing World War II. Upon
discharge he went to New
York to become a commer-
cial artist but couldn't find
a job.
Marshall drifted into the
theater, starting as a singer
with the choruses. His first


tHAITI SUN,


job was as a voicee, in the
orchestra pit of the Broad-
way theater where several
years later he was to star in
"Green Pastures,. Later he
,understudied half the ac-
,rors in New Yorks but the
only time he ever went on

FROM MIKE BERRY
in Haiti

Ed. Note on Mike Berry:
If you'd like to see Haiti
' through the eyes of a noted
American writer-cartoonist,
here it is. Author of the
column is Michael Berry of
,Clliers fame. He just paid
,a repeat visit with his sis-
ter to Aux Orchidees, his
Sfavourite vacation spot.

S I sim sitting by the edge
of a swimming pool under
Sa palm tree with a tall'rum-
S punch in my hand and not
a gag idea in my head. The
tropical sun is shining beau-
Itifully, and the gentle tin-
kle-tinkle in my glass blends
harmoniously with the stea-
dy tom-tom of the voodoo
drums in the hills.

My address is Haiti. or
more specifically Hotel aux
Orchidees,- Perionville. Re-
publique d'Haiti. This im-
probable hotel in a fabulous
land offers all that the dis-
criminating b e a c hcomber
may desire. Filet mignon
S twice a day. excellent rum
in unlimited quantities and
the company of a bunch of
strictly fictitious characters.
Everything here. is slightly
disorganized and casual in a
completely charming way.
The servants have learned a
S lot, but they still wipe the
'tOp cf a bottle efficiently
With the palm of a hand be-
fore touring t h e wine-
They're still likely to bring
you three .cups of coffee if
you ask for a match. But
who cares. The bill comes
to 7 dollars a day for room
-and board and 15 cents for
a slug of rum, but the gra-
cious lady who owns the
place picks up most of the
bar tabs because she's having
rso much fun. Last Friday
she went away for the week
end leaving one of the
guests in charge of the desk.
the cuisine and the cash box.




ATTEND
1*


The language in Haiti is
French, but English is mis-
undeistood everywhere. Na-
tional currency is the gourde
equal to 20 cents. One
gourde will buy a lb. sirloin
steak, half a dozen sisal
coasters, a hand-made wick-
er chair, a ride on the local
station wagon- to any ad-
dress in town, or ten U. S.
cigarettes.
The refined .old lady at
the next table, appeared
with a beaut of a black orb
this morning. ,I ran into a
bunch of bananas in the
dark,, she explained. Hai-
tian women admit that their
husbands are great lovers,
an opinion that is enthusias-
tically shared by many a
lady tourist. Advertising
art as well as the legit stuff
is Haitian Primitive, a
school that has become high-
ly popular with the more
sophisticated tourists, while
cultured Haitians still prefer
Van Gogh.
Depressing note: Had a
talk with the only Haitian
cartoonist. He's never had
a cartoon published because
Haitian newspapers, of
which there are quite a few,
hate cartoons.
Typical of the Haitian at-
titude towards life: A man
who built a luxurious hotel
on a mountain top, mostly
for his own enjoyment, told
me in French :
"This hotel, if it marches I
shall be content.
If it marches not I shall be
more content.,

CHILDREN'S COURT
The creation of a juvenile
court is badly needed in Hai
ti... probably even more
than in other countries. The
necessity for such an insti-
tution is proven by the ris-
ing percentage of children
who are left to shift for
themselves when they are
as young as eight years of
age often taking the road of
crime and degradation.
These abandoned young-
sters should be provided
with a special home where
they could undergo rehabili-
tation rather than be sent to
prison where they are likely
to learn to absorb more evil
than good.
