P.A.A. man Richard Robin-
son, had told him much of
Ithe beauties of Haiti and
Mr. Firestone, accompanied
by his petite blonde wife
and daughter, were anxious
to see as much of our Re-
public a4 their tight sche-
dule would permit.
On hand to greet .them
were three local Firestone
officials ... Agency Manager
Vic Lampson, dealer Jac-
ques Faubert and Company
Lawyer Jean Claude Leger.
They brought the Fire-
,stone family to their quart-
ers at the Ibo Lele and later
gathered for a dinner party
at Le Perchoir where the vi-
sitors extolled both the vista
and the food. Mademoiselle
Firestone ... pleased with
the ,intimen atmosphere of
the dining room in the
clouds, sat down at the
piano and played a number
of her own compositions-...
among them selections from
the score she has written for
the motion picture "Drama
in Madrid,, which will be
filmed in the Spanish Capi-
tal next year. The talented
young composer is another
example of the fact that
many of America's leading
debutantes have not -been
content to be mere social
butterflies but have engaged
in successful careers.
Thursday morning, the
Firestones pa'd a visit to
their company headquarters
in Port-au-Prince and then

The second witness was
Dr. Raymond Pressoir who
had treated the deceased
man for more than a year.
He testified that some days
before his patient's death he
found him in a state of ner-
vous excitement and .when
Pierre-Louis was asked the
nature of his trouble, he re-
plied that certain ,people
were trying to force him to
act against his will name-
ly, to get married.
Mile Semiramis Lemaire,
the woman charged with
being the chosen bride in the
marriage plot, was the next
to take the witness stand.
Her incoherence brought
forth this rebuke of Public
Minister Alphonse Racine,
sMadame, I suspect your
testimony and if I don't say
more it's only because I'm a
gallant man.,
The fourth witness was
Mme. Lenb Moise who de-
clared that she had been
coinmmre of Antoine Pierre-
Louis who had named one
of her children. Mme. Moise
testified that all Jacmel
kne* that Magellan was
Pierre-Louis' son. And she
added that Pierre-Louis him-
self had confided to her he
had recognized his off-
spring, making her promise
never to repeat the informa-
tion to anyone.
:Thursday, March 20th
the second day of testimony
began with the appearance
of Dr. Nosirel Gousse on the
stand. He declared' that
Pierre-Louis had told him
some days before his death,
ciEven though Magellan isn't
everything I could have
wished, I have decided tc
take care of his future.,,
Thursday evening when a
second cousin of the deceas-
ed. M. Raymond Pierre-
Louis. came out with dam-
aging testimony against the
accused Magellan, it caused
a hub-hub in the court' The
Public Minister asked the
court to take into account
the fact that M. Raymond
was personally connected
with the case, could not be
called a disinterested party)
and should only be heard by
the court under the ,Titre
de renseignements.,,
Defense lawyer Emma-
nuel Cauvin jumped up to
accuse M. Raymond of lying

under oath in order to eli- n
minute the true heir of his .s
dead cousin in order to grab c
the inheritance himself. He c
pointed out that'M. Ray- t
mond Pierre-Louis was the' i
lawyer engaged by the sis- (
ter and brother of the dead c
Antoine to win the effects I
of the wealthy bachelor. h
Judge cited two articles I
in the Code d'Instruction a
Criminelle in rejecting their
request. h
Defense lawyer Ducasse
Jumelle then cross-examined
the disputed witness in an
attempt to show that his
character was an unreliable
one.. He reported that the
witness ... Raymond Pierre-
Louis ... was himself recent-
Iv convicted of fraud by the
Civil Court of Jacmel. And
announced furthermore one
of the lawyers in the case,
M. Edvard Volel, was in
the court room to testify to
the truth of the state-
On the basis of further
testimony by other witness-
es, defense lawyer Jumelle
told the Court that shortly
before her recent death
Pierre-Louis, sister Claire
had called for a priest and'
a notary public in an at-
tempt to take back the
-charges she had made
against the defendants. But,
Jumelle charged, Raymond
and Faubert Pierre Louis
sternly refused to call the
notary in answer to the dy-
t ing woman's- plea, though


hey did call a priest since
ie was not dangerous.,,
The following day a
ieighbour of the deceased
nan ... M. Faucher Monde-
ire ... appeared to remove
Dne of the main props in the
ase against Magellan. He
testified that on the 15th of
August, 1950, he saw Civil'
Officer Toussaint Noel get
out of a car driven by Rol-
and Martelly and enter the
louse of Antoine Pierre
Louis. He added that he
also saw Martelly signal
Andre Begond as if to call
him and saw the latter re-
ipond to the call some min-
utes later. In the act of ac-
:usation against the above
men, it was charged that
they had never visited the
dying Pierre-Louis, who was
forbidden all company by
his Doctor. Therefore, their
paper showing he had for-
mall), recognized Magellan
as his son was claimed to be
a forgery.
Another witness, Navare
St. Louis, testified that he
saw the Civil Officer leave
the Pierre-Louis household.
Later the defense intro-
duced as evidence an affec-
tionale letter Antoine had
written, to Magellan whom
he addressed as "My dear
After an interrogation of
the five accused men, the
court opened the adebats ge-
neraux. I
Mr. Gabriel Volcy who
is acting as substitute Gov:
ernment Commissaire asked
for the floor. He announc-
ed that three elements were
necessary to prove the for.
gry charges against Megel-
lan and his four fellow, de-
fendants, but he insisted
thas none of these elements
were given weight in the
testimony of the witnesses
and asked the Court to dis-
miss the charges against Ma-
gellan and the co-defend-

Regime. Phito's maternal
grandfather, Thoby Ar-
mand, was also a writer and
statesman. So it is iittld
wonder that the three Mar
celin Brothers ... Phito, Milo
and Pierre ... grew up with
ink on their fingers. At the
age_ of 10, Phito was studi-
ously writing poetry, a pas-
time that he loves to this

But writing was not con-
sidered a full-time occupa-
tion for youth growing up
in the era of the American
Marines. Young Phito was
sent to Paris for a year to
study in a Business College.
In addition he received a de-
gree from the Port-au-
Prince law school, an item
that he has never put to pro-
fessional use.
His business training,
however, he did use, serving
in various government bu-
reaus, including the Depart-
ment of Public Works
where he sent 13 years all
told as Chief Accountant,
Chief Clerk and later Gene-
ral Secretary.
It was an exciting time

of the famous student strike

Occupation. Their rebellion
was not only against the
presence of foreign troops
on their soil. It was also
against the (foreign influ-
encen that dominated their
country's literature. It's time
,they said, that Haitians
wrote like Haitians and not
like imitators of French li-
terature. In July, 1927,
seven young writers ... in-
clucing Phito Marcelin ...
founded a new Journal to
put their ideas into prac-
tice- It was known as the
Revue Indigene. The liter-
ary magazine only managed
to publish six issues but it
marked a vital turning point
in the History of Haitian
Letters. Haitian Poets and
Novelists drew on the rich
folklore, the rich Creole
speech and the rich spirit of
their own countrymen. The
result was a virtual literary
revolution, one that pro-
duced a number of outstand-
ing authors, not the least of
whom was Phito Marcelin.
He was a prominent ton-
tributor to Port-au-Prince
newspapers,. writing music
and art reviews, humdur
columns and vivid appeals
for a truly national litera-

able to say what he pleased.
In addition he published
three books of verse, includ-
ing the well-received vol-
ume La N6gresse Adoles-
cente. And he got together
with his brother Pierre to
form a highly workable
team for the production of

Canape-Vert, a candid and
subtle study of Haitian pea-
isant life, won the second
annual contest for the best
novel written on the Latin-
American scene. Its publica-
tion by Farrar and" Rine-
hart in 1943 marked the
first time a book by a Hai-
tian author was translated
into English for an Ameri-
can edition. It was also
translated into Spanish for
publication in Argentina. -
Three years later Rine-
hart and Comnany brought
out another Marcelin novel.
The Beast of the Haitian
Hills- It was just reprinted
in England in 1951.

The Pencil of God, which
hit the American market in
1951, brought forth a chorus
of praise from leading U. S.
critics and carried an intro-
duction by one of the great-
est of them all, Edmund
Wilson. The humorous but
grim story of a middle-aged
Haitian Lothario suddenly
seized in the vise of a strange
.necessity ..unrolls- ,with all
the percision of-a Greek tra-
gedy. The Pencil of God,
the Creole proverb says, has
no eraser. And poor Dio-
gene finds that neither Voo-
doo charms of Catholic pray
,ers can alter his fate.
The Pencil of God will
be .published i n France
this year and preliminary
negotiations are now under-
way for it to be used as the
basis for a play and motion
picture in the United States.
Not content to rest on
their past glories, the Mar-
celin brothers 'are hard at

work on a fourth novel
which may be ready for the
publishers the end of this
year. Upon investigation,
your Reporter learned that
the writing team divides its
duties in the following man-
ner: Pierre, who has the
most imagination and better
knowledge of creole speech
and Haitian peasant life,
plots out the action and
most of the dialogue. Phito
does the actual writing of
the book, usually producing
the first and last Chapter,
then sandwiching in the

The brothers live in two
flats in the same apartment
building in Washington,
where Phito has been em-
ployed for the past 4 years
as Senior French Translator
at the Pan American Union.
After being granted a
Guggenheim Fellowship for
his new novel, he took a
leave of absence from his
post to write it.
