Natan Abramovitz and his
wife, Mirtza, while travelling in
1957 first visited Haiti. They
both liked this country from the
beginning and recognized poten-

Them to look deeper into the'
possibilities. 'They .returned the

aser, and second, an established
price regardless of international
market price fluctuations. It is
stipulated that a rise in world
prices will not affect their min-
imum. Rotation of crops is also
a factor, and the company has
contracted to purchase all such
crops grown at current world
Further, the company is sup-
plying the cooperatives and pri-
vate growers with the finest and
most modern equipment; the
services of trained agronomists;
with seeds, tractors, fertilizer,
bags to market crops, etc.
As with most other agricultur-
al products in Haiti- due to wea-
ther conditions, length of days,
etc. the Castor bean produces
under cultivation two crops a
Planters Provided with Credit
For the first time in Haiti in
such an enterprise, the Compa-
ny has arranged a credit syst-
em for the planters by making
credits available through the
Banque Commerciale and the
Banque Nationale, which banks
act as agents for the Company
in arranging credits and collec-
tions.) This was necessary be-
cause credit here is limited and
insufficient. The Company pro-
vides its own funds for a credit
system for the small planter.
The activities of the Company
have been organized through the
Haitian Government, ODVA, US-
OM, with land owned by
the Haitian Government and giv-
en to the cooperatives to work.
An important tie-in with the co-
operatives is the establishment
or rehabilitation of schools in the
various areas. Schools have al-
ready been established or re-
built in the. Artibonite in the
area of the operation. In other
places where schools did not ex-
ist. community centers are re-
furbished and used. Besides as-
sisting in the establishment of
the schools, all supplies nclud-
ing uniforms have been donated
by the company.
SReclaimed Land and
y plant and In order not to take land pre-
sure purch- sently cultivation for other
crops, the cooperatives sought
and use only land that has been
idle and completely unproductive
for many years, and land that
had never produced. HACS it-
self owns no land except a grant.
of 100 hectares given it b'y the'
Haitian Government to establish'
an experimental farm in the Ar-
tibonite. On this farm all expe-
rimentation will be directed to
the finding of better seed strains
and the most profitable kinds of'
crops possible for the future-
agricultural development of the.
country. In it the Company will.
invest large sums of its own mo-
ney, and in the future intends'
to turn it over to Haitian Gov-
e r n m e n t as an agricultural.
School for the Haitian people.
Land in the Artibonite was se-
lected both because it was fal-',
low and because irrigation was
available. Future experimenta-
tion will develop Castor bean:
strains to provide good crops in
other areas with little or no irri-
gation. Every Haitian farmer in
the future will benefit by such
experiments by being able to.
grow more and better crops.
End products of the Castor bean
crops, such as fertilizer for cot-
ton, tobacco, etc. will -be deve-
loped. The sisal industry will
benefit because of the increased
demand for sisal bags -for trans-
porting the beans.
Tobacco Export Planned
Mr Abramovitz is working on
plans with the Haitian Govern-
ment and the Regie du Tabac for
the development and export of
high qaulity Haitian tobacco to
the U.S. and Europe. This will
also be done through cooperat-
ives and private growers. The
tobacco export plans are being
developed by a number of Re-
pie du Tabac agronomists and
another group of investors
brought into the country by Mr
Abramovitz. A highly reputed
scientist has been employed to.
make a study of the tobacco
crop and to help develop the to-
bacco plantation so as to reach
the same markets as her neigh-

plains by painting out the re-
laxation of Spanish commerical
policy after the mid-eighteenth
Century. Once trade with the

lels between the two regions in
subsistence and subsistence tech-

furniture, in transport media
and weapons, in social and poli-
tical organization in religion and
language, he concludes that "the
supposed ethnological parallels
are either non-existent or can
be explained on grounds' other
than diffusion across the Straits
of Florida. The few parallels
'which exist are few enough so

with, the plantation economy
was a fairly general phenomen-
on m those colonies of the Car-
ibbean (Portug u ese, Dutch,
French and English) where the
sugar plantation -was introduced
in the early colonization period,
while (partial. destruction of a
settled peasantry occurred only
in the Spanish Caribbean colon-
ies (Puerto Rico, Santo Domin-
go,-"uba), where the plantation
economy onf a grand scale was
not introduced before the nine-
teenth century. This remark is
merely an attempt to extend the
value of the authors' careful
study of the Jamaican case.
Donald Hogg in "-The Convince
Cult in Jamaica"' presents a de-
tailed description of a little
"more unique to Convince, and
thus more the point of this ana.
lysis." These particularities (e.
g. emphasis upon independence
from external authority, insist-
ence on regarding Convince' as
African in origin and nature,
open defiance of Christian deities
and moral code) are, as the
author himself states, apparent-
ly a reflection of Maroon histo-
ry. They were "probably func-
tional" in Maroon society, but
they now have to be regarded
as "historically-explainable" ele-
ments in the Convince, cult. In
case we do not accept the-:Ma-
roon origin of the cult, then its
"more unique" peculiarities will
have to be "functionally" ex-
plained -by the oppression and
exploitation of lower-class Jam-
aicans-by Europeans. But then,

a Maroon origin. Hogg is cer-
tainly at his best as an astute
observer, with enough distance
from his object to allow hiriself
a mild irony at the right mo-
ment. His attempt to "explain"
the cult by its "functional uti-
lity" is perhaps less fortunate,
which may be attributable less
to- a fault of the author than to
the irrelevance of "functional-
isms." The "recreational pur-

I NJ HAITI THIS WEEK
In the Massac-iusetts, the Assads were very impressed by the
very effective help of Mr Edward D. Sherman, General Consul
of Haiti in Boston and the kindnesses of Harry and. Elizabeth Rif-
chin. "If all our Representatives in the U.S. were as helpful as
Ed. Sherman, Dr Assad stated, Haiti would not have such a bad
press." Mr Sherman must be congratulated for his wonderful job.
"**Early this week a group of about fifty members of the Na-
tional Selected Morticians from all over the U.S. flew down here
after a convention held in Miami. Fla. The party greeted by Mr
Georges Heraux of the Heraux Tours spent three days at the Villa
Creble where a beautiful program including a fashion show by
O!gk Boutique in an atmosphere of joie de vivre with music provid-
ed by the famed Nemours Jean-Baptiste orchestra.
The impression of the party is enshrined in a poem by Bob
yynne, of 1716 Canterbury Rd, Raleigh, North Carolina.
The poem runs thus:
I came to Haiti and fell in love -
Not with the Downtown Market
But the people up above.
At Villa Creole everything is grand
It is like being in Heaven, or another land -
The food is fabulous'and the view divine
All the women seem pregnant, except this wife of mine!
Je ne parole pas francais, but I do declare
They seem to understand me everywhere
Except when I order a niartini and get a beer
But it makes no difference I love it here
The floor show was excellent and the models "tres chic"
It's a sin I am over 40 and can't stay here a week!
Villa Creole, Petionville
