SUNDAY. JUNE 8th 1952

What started as a plea-
sant sailing trip for the
Louis Mevs family ended in
grim tragedy last Sunda5
when their long-time friend
Mr. Auguste Desbois -
drowned during an attempt
to rescue them from chopp)
wind-swept seas.

There was no hint of bad
weather when Papa Louis
keu out from Martissant with
his .two. sons. 18-year-old
Joel and 10-year-old AMi-
chael, in their 14-foot sailing
. boar for their usual week-
tnd outing, the)y sailed
gaily down,,. the .,coast to
Mer Frappee with a keen
wind spanking their canvas.
They carried two air rifles
to shoot birds near the coast
and a big picnic lunch.
which they ate with great
guero and then sat back to
wait for wind to change -
as it normally does around
noontime. But to their grow
ing concern nothing of the
kind happened. Instead the

Since Haiti is an Agricul-
tural country, its economy
is directly keyed to the pro-
duction of its thousands tip-
on thousands of small farms
and sprinkling of large
plantations. During 'Colo-
,nial days the lush tropical
-earth of our small island
yielded such bountiful har-
vests that Saint Domingue
was knoun as the richest
possession of the New
World. But in the long
years that followed, time
and the poverty of our
struggling Republic took
their toll. Land was divid-
ed and redivided until there
wasn't a single large plan-
;ation of colonial size left
* in the entire Republic.

tion dropped disastrously as

ly enough ,for their own

tems. which fed thirsty-
fields in the colonial era,
were abolished through lack
of repair. The gradual de-
nuding of the Haitian bills
and mountains caused ero-
sion on an almost fatal
scale. Thousands of farm-

their land was literally
washed away during the
rainy season. Thousands
more literally "wore out"

By three o'clock the rowing
was exceedingly rough as the
small boat wallowed in the
high waves. They were be-
tween La Mer Frappee and
Mariani whed one oar broke
and soon the other. As luck
would have it, the boat was
,in shallow water not far
from .shore. They jumped
in and made their way to
the lighthouse, trailing their
boat behind them. They
tried to call Mrs. Mevs to
tell her that they were safe
and rhat they hoped to find
a car or camion in time to
keep their evening date to
go to the movies. But the
telephone was out of order
and while they were asking
the Lieutenant's permission
to cross the Lighthouse pro-
perty and head inland, they
spotted an outboard motor
boar chugging in their di-,

It proved to be Mr. Au-

man from Martinique who
had been friends with the
Mevs ever since he arrived
in Haiti 14 years ago and

and clambered into the mo-

to avoid striking a reef.

on one, but noticed no dam-
age). They threw a canvas
sail over their heads to keep
as much warer our of the
small boar as possible -
but soon it was necessan for
Joel to bail out with a

on. Then about two

Mesvs had time to shout
"throw the motor over-
board" but it was too late.

Dragged down by t he
weight of the 400 dollar
outboard motor, the boat
sank to the bottom of the
bay. Mr. Desbois who
was quite deaf apparent-
ly had no warning to the
coming tragedy, since he

hours of clinging to the

do but try at paddling to

improvised oars in the dan-

They soon found, however.
that the wind was still the

ashore along the coast. The
exhausted survivors waded
through a rice field and re-
turned once more to the
lighthouse. It was 9.30 p.m.
They found Cousin Ge-

awaiting news of their res-

that the Cutter sent out to

their cries but had been too
large to venture in the
.shallow seas. The Coast
Guardmen were about to
launch a smaller boat when
the Mevs and Mr. Bailly ar-
rived. On the dock also
were Mrs. Mevs and other
anxious relatives who had
been notified of the tragedy.

Little Sketches of Great Painters

Series of Articles by

In my last article I spoke
about Cezanne it seems
fitting to introduce a contem
porary of his, Georges Seu-
rat, also a Post-impression-
ist, who came to be known
as a upointalist" he was
the acknowledged leader -
Jnstead of mixing his col-
ours on the palette before
putting them on the canvas,
he set the colours methodi-
cally in small dots of com-
plimentaries apd the eye of
the observer did the blend-
ing. His style was ridicu-
led then, today we know
that his method produced
an exciting luminosity -
but his genius was not due
to his method be nas a
great painter and a master
of complex composition.
Georges Seurat was born
in 1859 in Paris. His father
Swas a bailif who lived away
from home, completely ab-
orbed in religious practices
- he dined at home once a
week and it must have been
rather wierd, because -e had
a wooden arm to which he
attached various imple-
ments, ,and 'was so dexter-
ous in their use, it was like

watching a circus perform-
ance, to see him eat. Per-
haps it was in reaction to
his strange father that Seu-
rat was the most conserva-
'tive of sons, he dressed med
culously in dark suits and a
top hat, and was very re-
'served. Some of his friends
said he looked like a busi-
ness man with the profile
of an Assyrian king he
wore a beard. He had sru.-
died'ar the academic Beaux
Arts, the traditional styles
of Ingres and Poussin lat-
.er by himself, he studied the
Egyptians, orientals and Per
-sians. Among the later
painters, he was passionate-
Ily fond of DelacroLx.
When he gathered with
the various artists and writ
,er friends at the Paris cafes,
he would listen in silence to
their discussions, except
when the subject of art came
4p. He was especially fond
of explaining his own
work, modestly, even timid-
ly but one felt in him a
great pride of accomplish-
Most of his life was devot
',ed to his art, the rest was
lived secretly. His most in-
'timate friends didn't kiiow
he had a- mistress and son


'until he died, at the age of
31, of septic quincy his
little son died a few days
later of the same disease -
all his friends had known
was that he dined every day
with his mother.
He lived during a great
iera for painting, the array
of names is staggering, Dela
croix, Courbet, Gauguin,
Van Gogh, Monet, Manet,
Berthe Morrisot (Manet's
sister-in-law), Renoir, Lau-
trec. Degas.
The great writers of that
day were the artist's staunch
.est supporters, whom they
defended against unsympa-
'thedc critics or public, ex-
plaining technique, b a t-
tling the conservative Salon,
gaining the support of in-
fluential and rich people.
The public may have hated
the direction art was taking
but they were nor indiffer-
The poet Mallarme was
attached to the generation of
impressionists, as Zola was,
who later made a great fa-
vourite of Gauguin the
one symbolist painter to
emerge from the impression-
The great critic FMlix
Fcneon became Seurat's
most intimate friend. He
s rote warm and scathing
articles in his defense.

cent painting ((the Grande
latter was exhibited with
the ulndependantsi, insults

journal, Figaro wrote:
(Not very interesting, this
exhibition, from the point of
view of art, but to be recom
mended to people who suf-
fer from disorders of the
spleen we advise those of
our friends who like to
laugh, to visit this show....))
But I am happy to say
that the critics in America
took a broad view, and
when Parisian dealer, Du-
rand-Ruel exhibited 300 con
temporary French paintings
at the Madison Square Gar-
den, in New York, every-
one expected a violent re-
action, but on the contrary
it was a moral success as
'well as financial.

An American newspaper
printed this critic's com-
'lI is distinctly felt that
the painters have worked
with decided intention, that
if they have neglected estab-
lished rules it is because
they have outgrown them,

and if they have ignored
lesser truths, it has been in
order to dwell more strong-

One of Seurat's last paint
ings ,Jeune Femme se Po.u-
drant,.. not one of his
friends knew that this wo-
man was his mistress in
the painting she wears an
old fashioned corset ori-
ginally Seurat's reflection
appeared in the mirror bang
ing on the wall. One of his
friends not knowing the in-
timate relations of the artist
and the model, remarked
that his image in the paint-
ing might give rise to offen-
sive jokes so Seurat re-
placed his image with a
flower-pot. Too bad, I
should like to hase seen it at

was the only self portrait he
ever did.

By T. J. Grant
There shall be mangoes in harvest still, and flame tree
blossoms again,
And flowers shall bloom on a Haitian hill. with the
summer and autumn ram.
But never a word will I write again in the columns of
Haiti Sun,
IWhile the stars shine down on the Cul de Sac plain, till
my earthly course is'run.

Rivers shall flow till their waters meet the shores of
the southern sea,
And summprs shall, shimmer in veils of hear, to the drone
of the homing bee.
But my pen shall forever be laid aside, and never
shall write again,
For Efron has taken me for a ride, and says that I give
her a pain.

Bugles of color the winds shall blow, o'er Haiti's hills
and plains.
Seasons will come and seasons go. and droughts shall
follow rains.
But never a word will you hear from me. while the sea-
sons come. and pass.
That is the way that it has to be. proud Efron says I'm
an ass.

Now, unless you are s?llier than I think you are,
. you know I don't mean a word of that. I would be the
ass Miss Efron thinks I am if I were to deprive all you
lovely people of the pleasure of reading the outpour-
ings of my genius; just to please her. But, of course, I
mnust do something to please her. I wonder if this will:

,Some weeks ago I wrote
that, as a child, Marcel Gen-
til was a malignant little de-
vil. Some of Marcel's
friends did not like that and
they lost no time in letting
me know it.
I asked Marcel about it.
He was not in the least hurt
or offended. So what?
I also said that Marcel
has changed since he was a
child. Perhaps I should have
said developed, instead of
changed, as it is becoming
dear to me as I work on his
autobiography, r h a the
sense of justice, the logical
reasoning and the power of
repartee which bave charac-
Terised his mature years are
inherent characteristics, not
faculties acquired as a result
of training or education.
To substantiate this the-
tr) I will relate another
anecdote about his child-
hood years which I think
may convince you that I
know what I am talking
about. One afternoon, when
Marcel was about seven,
the parish priest surprised
him belaboring a donkey
with a large club.
"Stop. my son", cried the
priest. "don't you know that
those who offer violence
shall suffer violence??;
Marcel's reply came with-
out a moment's hesitation:
nThat's exactly what I'm
teaching this animal. Father.

Ar 6.30. the bride wear
ing a breathtaking creation
of the leading Parisian de-

walked down the aisle of
the Sacred Heart Church to
repeat her vows in a reli-
gious ceremony. Her short
v 'il was attached to a npe-

they were used to decorate

signed to fit the head with

Eyes widened in admira-
dtion as the bride slowly
made her way to the altar
on the arm of her Engineer
father, who looked very
distinguished in his "queue
