The accident that accmUT6e
last week when a big truck of
the Fire Corps hurt a Jeep Sta-
tion Wagon "Service de l'Etat"
plated, is the illustration of the
necessity for our drivers to be
more prudent. '

The trucks of Fire Brigade, in
HAiti as in. all countries of the
world, have priority in the traf-,
fic. When in service, they can
"burn the red lights", drivers
of private cars must remember
it and stop their cars when they
hear the whistling siren of the
Fire Brigade.

a pity that Haitian cuisine is not
better known abroad. At pre-

As the dishes indicate, the lan-

Ifems to Buy

Shopping is interesting. Aside
from the standard run of free-
port merchandise on sale in
many other places in the Carib-
bean, there is attractive mahog-
any work available'in the better
craft shops. It includes well-de-
signed bowls, plates, serving
dishes, utensils, and also objects
of art such as original statuettes
and large and beautiful busts of
such historical figures of Haiti
as the brilliant Toussaint L'Ou-
vertur -and ruthless, dramatic.
Henri Christophe.,

But perhaps the finest things
to be bought,-in Haiti are Haitian
paintings. The flourishing art of
this small nation 'has- developed
only in recent years 'td is char-
acterized by brilliant color, pri-
mitive force and striking indivi-

ron, Lazard, Denis and a score
of others.

fo Duty on Art

Many are priced reasonably.
It is worth remembering also
that little'or no duty is charged
on art works, which can there-
fore be purchased freely above
and beyond the United States
tourist quota.

the. mosiu enjoyable thing about
Haiti for the American is to find
how hospitable and friendly Hai-

appreciate those Americans who
enjoy their county and its cult-
ure. '
In these circumstances, it is
particularly unfortunate that oc-
casionally ~e experiences for-

Haitians are unpleasant. For in-

will often be besieged by boys

research officers led by a lieute-
nant who asked for a complete
list of animals and reptiles we
have here."
"This is third week of camp-
aign. Didnt pay muoh attention
to it at first. We paid for two
days of denials but the stories
have grown bigger. One story
this morning said the 'Army had
captured two of the pythons and
another in the Matin was that a
head of a devoured man was
discovered not far frdm here. Its
pretty convenient if you want to
get rid of someone," 'said the
American Dancer.
Department of Tourism at
noon Monday advised Dunham
without reason tomorrow's Party
at her Place for the South Ame-
rica Queens participating here
in a Pan American Festival had
been cancelled. Tele-Haiti that
night said it was because Brazi-
lian Boas were on the loose.
Miss Dunham said the zoo
yvas hobby of her business-
p.artner youthful Swede
Dick Fr-isell who "has giv-
en freely of personal funds
and unlimited devotion towards
success of the Night Club with
its authentic Voodoo dances and
has started zoo as a sideline."'
Asked whether the Haitian res-
pect for Damaballah the Snake-
God of Voodoo cult has not inten-
sified their fear of these four
romping rovers who will lay eggs
in the spring and eventually
swamp Haiti, Katherine said no
and that Damballa happened to
be her god. Added she generally
did not like snakes and feeds
other animals in preference to
feeding weekly white mice and
occasional frog to the sole py-
thon who shares a cage along
with a Haitian sleeping snake
and an emerald tree snake, both
also non-poisonous.
By chance our story was
shown to a friend who has a
farm neighboring Habitation Le-
;clerc and chances to have some
biological background. He said
that pythons are not uncommon
on. his farm and he has seen
them there over since he owned
the. farm, at least 10 years. Py-
thons are not poisonous and the
relatively small species would not
even attack an animal as small
as a cat. Undoubtedly they do
eat rats, mice and possibly small
chickens. They will not develop
in arid areas, probably the rea-
son they are found mostly along-
side the small streams east and
west of Carrefour.
The Haitian Government has
an effective veterinary and plant-
quarantaine service which con-
trols the importations of new
animal and plant species. It is
doubtful that these well inform-
ed serious people would have
