SUNDAY JUNE 15th 1952

Haiti's domestic economic
problems and the impact of
troubled world affairs were
the two dominant subjects
under discussion Friday
morning at the first weekly
Press Conference held by
Secretary of the Presidency
Mauclair Zephirin.


It was announced that the
Minister of Finance. Alexan
dre Dominique, is now stu-
dying a blueprint for mone-
tar) reform which he hopes
to submit to the Conieil des
Secretairec d'Etat in 'the near
future. No further inform-
ation is available yet on this

important issue.
It was also announced
that the President has re-
quested the head of each
Ministerial Department to
make a thorough study of
Haiti's probable problems
in the event of a new world
war. By foresight. the Gov
ernment hopes to success-
fully meet crises when and
if they arrive.

M. Zephirin also bad a
highly important piece of
information to divulge re-
garuing rhe Artibonite pro-
iect. He revealed that Anme-
rican technicians have made

well-aimed bullet through

the eye, a bullet shot by
Lieutenant Baucicot of the
Police Department. The

of the caimai but it did not
solve the mystery of his pre-

All countries are proud of
their artists, musicians and
writers. It is these who to
a very large extent are the
artisans ot civilization. The
role of the creative imagine

kind is enormous. But its
first proceeding is that of
the artist to look at the
world without regard to es-

to gain a view of it which

It is in the interest of the

It is therefore natural
that UNESCO should be
concerned ssith the state of

Taxi-Agency Tug Of War


Roger Chancy celebrated Guy Baussan arrived in Lt.. Pressoir Pierre cele-
his birthday anniversary town by air Wednesday 4th. brared his f&e yesterday.
Saturday "'ih. -:0:- -:0:-

One of the most unrelent-
ing tugs-of-war in the his-
;tory of the tourist industry
is the battle between public
taxi drivers and the chauf-
feurs of tourist agencies
m ho both are viewing for the
, chance to transport incom-
ing Pan American tourists
to their hotel destinations.
last week the taxi drivers,
were summoned to the Po-
lice Dept. "where Lt. Fritz
Leon of the Traffic Depart-
orent tried to find a way
to solve their persistent corn
plaints that t he Agenc-,
chauffeurs are indulging in
u'afair competition.
The problem is compir
c-ted by the fact thar only
the drivers.of tourist agency
S crs or- allowed to enter

the Pan American waiting
room at the Airport. The
taxi drivers complain that
the Agency chauffeurs take
advantage of their privilege
by filling their cars with as
many passengers as they can
hold. rather than just con-
tenting themselves to .trans-
port the visitors dealing
with their particular agency.
The following plan has
been offered as one solution
to the problem: Each day
the Pan American Office
.could give the Office of
Tourism the number of
visitors expected on the
next incoming flight. The
Tourist Agencies wo u I d
submit the list of names of
passengers they are expect-
ing. And these passengers
would be transported by
their respecrile chauffeurs.
The public taxi drivers
would be given the right to
transport tourists who had
made n o ",reservations.",,

Dr. Louis Roy appeared
before a large audience at
the French Institute Tuesday
night to give a blow by blow
account of the progress made
in the grim fight against one
of the country's most ruth-
less killers, tuberculosis.
The Sanitorium Director
,stressed the fact that the
B.C.G. vaccination against
the dread disease has been
proven beyond a doubt to
be the surest, most rapid and
least costly method of fight-
.ing T. B. He reported that
millions, of people through-
out the world have been in-
oculated successfully with
the anti-tuberculosis serum
and that scientists are now
unanimously in accord on
the excellence of the me-
,But he added, rumours of
the old prejudices against
B.C.G. still are bruited
about in less-informed coun-'
tries, slowing down the vi-
tal vaccination programme.
To disprove such outmoded
theories. Dr. Roy showed an
educational film on B.C.G..

the tuberculosis problem.
The President of the Anti-
Tuberculosis League an-
nounced thgt Haiti had gain

battle against the ever-pre-

"there is much that remains
to be done."

number of foreign students
in the United States in in-
stitutions of higher educa-
tion for the academic year

Although the figures were
not 100 per cent complete,
and many short-term scu-
dents or late arrivals were
not included, the census
'showed an estimated total
of 31.000 foreign students
in professional schools and
universities in the United
States for this period. A-
mong these students were
89 Haitians. The greater
number of Haitian sTudents
were in New York State.
and Massachusetts.

Among all foreign stu-
dents, New York State was
hose to the greatest number,
with California next and
Massachusetts the third. The
rest were distributed among
all the States in the Union.
The students came from
most of the well known
country es of the world as
well as from such distant
and little-known countries
as Afghanistan, Cambodia
and Tibet.
