Lucien was( the name of
the small bos whose infec-

the gateway of St. Vincent's

grin outshone the gleaming

* The exciting phrase "Hai

headlines from one end of
America to the other. It's
being flashed on the televi-
sion screen, featured in
newspaper and magazine
ads and made the theme of
window displays in depart-

All this excellent publicity

the big summer advertis-'

- the manufacturers of one
of the world's leading syn-

It is also due to the enter-

instrumental in convincing
the men in charge of the
advertising account of the
huge fabric firm that Haiti
would provide an excellent
background for photograph

I apm in love again,
And my love is the
FajUstsr among women.
Fairer than the Shulamite
To whom Solomon the King
Sagg his Song of Songs.
Fairer than the dawn
Upon a thousand hills
Is.. my beloved.

No. flower in any
Garden ever grew as
Fair as my beloved.

She is the peace
That comes at eventide.
She, is the quiet night
That brings surcease.
She is the breaking
Dawn and the
J.ulfillment of morning.
She is the high sun
At noon and the
Solendor of the day.
She is the miracle
Of life.
She is my beloved.

As I go about m5
Daily tasks at the
Slaughter-House and
Gaze upon the
Headless. skinless.
Eviscerated carcasses of
Beef hanging by tlieir
Feet from the rafters,
And dripping blood,
I think of my beloved.

As I caress livers,
Purple as Lichonia
Blossoms: as I fondle
Kidneys, red as rubies
Folded one upon the
I think of my beloved.

When I clasp the rosy.
Soft and spongy lungs.
Which once pulsated
With the same sweet air
That you and I
Are breathing.
I think of my beloved.

When I look-upon

By T. J. Grant.

The unwashed tripe,
Still green from the
Grass which nourished it,
I think of my beloved.

Because I find it
Evilly strange that,
Under her cloak of
Beauty, my beloved is
Hiding from me her
And. somehow. I am
Nor pleased with her.

For she is to me
Like the surging
Music of violins,
Like che wildflowers
On the hills of Perodin,
Like mooolightr on
Still waters, a spirit,
A flame, a

And yer.
I do not think
That I would care
To see my beloved
Headless, skinless.
And eviscerated,
Hanging by her
Feer from the rafters
Of the Abattoir.
Dripping blood.

But such plans had to be
put aside temporarily -
for i.be sake of his chosen
trade. Haiti needed trained
linorypists and the Rocke-
feller Foundation offered
Leon a rwo-year scholar-
ship to leary the intricacies
of maintaining and operat-
ing this complex machine.
He accepted and in 1944.
'sert off for his second trip
Stateside. First he stopped
cff at Howard University
for a three-month course in
English. Then he went on
to the linotype school where
be graduated with top
But he was not as con-
cerned about his high grades
as the fact-that the Ameri-
can people knew so little
about Haiti. He determin-
i-d to do something about
it.- First. he gave a per-
formance of Haitian dances
at New York's lnternation-
al House, then he began a
series of lectures at Univer-
sit es on the folklore of his
homeland finally be had
,o man) invitations to give
dances and talks on Haiti
that he couldn't find room
on his busy calendar.
Using the name of cJean
Leon" be appeared in sev-
eral concert halls antd thea-
tres as well as some of the
leading- New York night
,pots such as Cafe Society
and La AMartinique.
When it came rime for
him to report to the Rocke-
feller Scholarship Commit-
.iee in Washington, he
Somewhat sheepishly con-
fessed that he had been
,engaged in spreading know-
'ledge ratherI than j ust
,t-eceiving it. When the
committee learned that their
young linorypist student;
was an expert of the Hai-
tian dance, they asked for a
performance. To Leon, this
performance turned out to
be the luckiest of his career.
An American in the audi-
ence was so struck by the
young Haitian's sincerity
and talent that he or she
became the dancer's pat-
ron and aksisred him invalu
ably in the difficult years
Sto come.
To fulfill his scholarship
obligations, Leon returned
to Port au Prince and taught
other Haitian boys how to
operate linotypes. Mean-
while he presented his own
programme of folklore dan-
ces in a free programme at
the Haitian American Insti-
It was abroad however
and not here at home
that Leon Destind wis to

In 1946 he joined Kath-
erine Dunham's Troupe as
a guest artist and for two
years toured the United
States and Mexico. He left
her group when a Mexican
movie company asked him
to star in a short film called
"Bambu." Leon told Your
Reporter he learned much
from seeing himself per-
form on the screen. In 1948,
he felt it was time he form-
ed his own dance company.
With the sizzling Haitian
drummer Alphonse Cimber,
the exotic dancer from Bar-
bados ... Jea'nne Ramon ...
and a group of 10 well-
trained artists, Leon Destine
garnered success after suc-
cess. He appeared as soloist
with his company in the
New York City Opera Pro-
duction of William Grant
Srill's "Troubled Island",
and leave a special concert
at the American Museum
of Natural History as part
of its series "Around the
World ivith Dance and
Song." It was a programme
which 'non Destine high
praise for his ethnologic
Slues. technical virru(isir
and dramatic vitalirv.



The New York Herald-
Tribune termed him "a
wonderful dancer, agile,
passionate, yet'dignified ...
at home in the Haitian dan-
ces which echo the elegance
of the French courts as well
as in those which contain
the wild free actions of the
The Nu', York Sun prais-
ed his dancing for its re-
freshing spontaneity and
vitality. Dance MAlagazne
said, "it is educational en-
tertainment at its best."
Probable the most gratify-
ing acclaim to Leon was the
acclaim he received in his
own country when he was
called to Port au Prince to
direct and star in the Folk-
lore Troupe performing at
the 1950 International Ex-
Later he returned to the
U .S. to star in his second
short film ,Witch Doctor,.
This picture was shoran to
Port au Princians at the Pa-
ramount recently as a pre-
lude to "Lydia Bailey., In-
cidentally. it seems to us
that 20th Century Fox miss-
ed a great opportunity when
it overlooked the Destine
troupe to have the Haitian
