Sylvio Cator: The Immortal Torch-Bearer
* r

Yesterday was the Inde-
pendence Anniversary of
the world's only other Ne-
gro Republic which was
born in Africa July 26,
1847. The new Mjnister of
Liberia, Mr. George Brewer
Jr., offered a reception in
honour of the event at his.
residence in Canape Verr.
He also offered Your Re-
porter some vital statistics
on the land which has so
much in common with Hai-
ti bur is so little known
among our citizens.

We are printing the fol-
lowing summary in the in-
terest of our readers :

The Republic of Libe.'a
is found halfway down the
West Coast of Africa, about
310 miles north of the Equa
tor. It is limited on Lne
west, partly by the Mann
River and the British Col-
ony of Sierra Leone, on the
north, by the French Gui-
nea, on the East, the Caval-
Ail river separates Liberia
from the French Ivory Coast

and on the South by the.
l2ntic Ocean.

For countless centuries.
.the people of many tribes
have lived in these upland
forests and coastal plains of
West Africa. During ehe
great Age of Exploration,
adventurers from Portugal,
Spain, England, France and
Holland ranged along the
coast in search of gold and
other treasure. But the his-
tory of Liberia's founding
-as a nation begins less than
150 years ago, with the com
ng of a little band of pio-
neers from America who
-were searching for a new
home. ,
The settlers' expedition
-was sponsored by the Ame-
rican 'Colonizatioid Society,
'which had been organized
in 1816 for the express pur-
pose of helping freed slaves:
in the United States to re-
.turfi to Africal if they wish-
ed to do sb. The United
'States Government cooper-
-ated by furnishing appro-
-priations. arms and ammurri
rion. With the money, the
society chartered sailing
,ships to carry settlers to a
site in Africa where they
might found new colonies.
The First Settlements
The first expedition em-
barked on the Elizabeth in
February, 1820. They. set-
.tied on the island of Sher-
bro near what is now the
northern boundary of L.-
beria. But disaster struck :
_the little colony; many set-
tlers died of hardships and
.tropical diseases. The ones
-who survived were taken to
the near-by British colony
-of Sierra Leone.
A year later the second
ship, the Nautilus.. arrived
in Africa with a load of
colonists, from America. The
Nautilus picked up the sur-
vivors of the Sherbro Island
settlement and sailed south-
ward to a pleasant, fertile
tractor which had been
bought from the natives for
-a new colony. In January,
1822, the newcomers landed
on a small green island at
the mouth of the IMesurado
"River. Today this little is-

land is a treasured shrine of
Liberia: its name is Provi-
dence Island. January 7th
is observed as a Liberian
holiday Pioneer Day.
The settlers moved to the
mainland where they built
homes and prepared the
land for crops. They did not
have an easy time of it.
They) had grown up in Ame
rica to many of them

their first .attack was driv-
en off, but on December 1st,
they were back with a larger
force. The little band of
defenders fought bravely,
although their ranks had
been thinned by death and
,sickness. In the battle there
-were said to be only 35 set-
tlers capable of .bearing
Taking part in the de-
fense was Liberia's favour-
'ite heroine, Matilda New-
port. When one of the gun-
ners was shot down, she
ran to his station and fired
the canon until the attack-
ers were driven off. Now,
December 1st, is another of-
ficial Liberian holiday -
Matilda Newport Day.
After this victory, a peace
treaty was signed with the
.aborigines. Large numbers
of .new settlers arrived from
America and a town began
to grow at the mouth of
the Mesurado River. It. was
named Monrovia, in honour
of President James Monroe
'of the United States. At one
time President Monroe head
,ed the American CAloniza-
tion Society.
Four more colonization
societies of the United States
soon established settlements
near Monrovia. In 1839 the
settlements of the Pennsyl-
vania, New York, Mississip
* pi, and American Coloni-
zation Societies-were united
under one administration
called the Commonwealth
of Liberia. The name was
coined from the Latin word

for free, liber. A constitu-
tion was set up which gave
the colonists a large mea-
sure of self-government.
Trading vessels in increase,
ing numbers brought goods
to the growing settlements
and to the .native villages.
The little commonwealth
passed laws setting up cus-
,toms duties, but many of
,the trading captains refus-
ed to pay heduties. The
Commonwealth of Liberia
was not a sovereign state,
said the traders. Therefore,
they insisted they did not
have to observe its regula-
The American Coloniza-
tion Society advised the co-
lonists to make themselves
a completely independent
country. This the Libe-
rians did. On June 25,
1847. a Constitutional Con-
vention was called together
in Monrovia, with delegates
from each county in the
commonwealth. The dele-
gates wrote a Constitution
and a Bill of Rights closely
modeled after those of the
United States. On July 26,
1847, they signed their De-
claration of ,Independence
proclaiming that their coni-
monwealth was henceforth
-a ,"free, sovereign, and in-
dependent state, by the
name and style of the Re-
public of Liberia.",
It was not until 1862,
during the presidency of
Abraham Lincoln, that Li-
beria received official Ame-
rican recognition as a na-
tion, though most other
Powers has recognized it
years before.
In 1857, Liberia added to
its territory the settlement
which had been founded by
rthe Maryland Colonization
Society at Cape Palmas 22
years before. When the set-
tlers decided to join the
Liberien union, their t lony
became L:Leria's southern-
most county, called Mary-
land County.
Minister Brewer reports :

Wednesday night is be-
coming ,as popular as Satur-
day night at the Casino In-
ternational. One reason is
the dance contest which is
in fact a stylish floor show
starring the Capital's best
dancers. This past Wednei
day there were only two
contestants but there were
several hundred enthusias-
tic onlookers. For an hour
.they captivated- their audi-
ence with eight different
dances ... including the
jmambo, eringue, bolero,
waltz... The first prize giv-
jen by well known Commer-
cant Emilo Geo. Indoine, a
Surprise -bibx, went to Si-
mone Baguidy and Gjy

revealed itself to be a large

y to a colleague running
Into position. .The first
half was one of short, sav-
age sorties at an astonishing
pace. Within the first 15
minutes each goalkeeper had
been engaged in as many
duels with opposing for-
wards. Their left-winger
Alexandre, centred high to
i Guiflaume who, 20' feet
From the goal directed the
ball with his forehead to
. the net.
Jamaica resumed in the
second half with a resolute
spirit, particularly shown by
Sthe Captain, Dudley Smith,
at right half and by Dickie
0 Bayliss at left-back. But
,their wingers checked by
a''. the Haitian full-backs, or
" by the referee's whistle
From moving away, and the
inside forwards, finding La-
Scossade impenetrable, took
to kicking high and wide.
SJacques at right wing show


;ed the tourists how to do it,
with a foot shot that goalie
Williams found impossible
to save. Then Jamaica in-
side left Alcock, received a
long pass from Bayliss, pi-
voted twice, threw off his
,opposing .backs, and ran
past Lacossade into the nets,

Haiti pressed on. Wil-
liams fisted out a left-wing
,hot which Jacques tapped
into the net. A few min-
utes later opportunist Dero-
siers cut in through the de-
fence to score the fourth
goal for Haiti.

2nd Game
For Jamaica this was a
disappointing and frustrat-
ing match. Their strength-
ened forward line, with 20-
year-old Noel Tappin at
centre forward, attacked
from the opening whistle,
and subjected Haiti's second
best goalkeeper Thomas to
bombardment. Within 7
minutes a hard Tappin shot


came through, followed in
another 7 by the second,
then a well-placed shot from
afairy-bootsu Lester Alcock
gave Jamaica a three-nil
Haiti fielded a youthful
new team featuring wonder
centre-forward Gerard Haig-
but at first their combina-.
tion was ragged. Their'
first goal, scored by Haig
from a scrimmage, was a
stroke of luck.
But in the second half
lack of condition affected
the Jamaican team like a
reinforcement of opponents.
Urged on by the Sunday afl
ternoon crowd, the tem-
peramental Haiti team re-
covered their dash, and be-
gun to combine like clock-
work, as the Jamaicans.
wilted from the strain.
Jacques, a clever forward,
loomed before Williams in
the penalty area, prepared
to pass to another, then took
the shot himself scoring
Haitis' goal number two.
The crowd rose in the
stands as Haiti surged for-
ward to equalise. That mo-
ment came when a left corn
er kick was converted with
a perfect header by Haig in-
to a goal. The game end-
ed with the crowd acclaim-
ing the surprising finish,
with Jamaica yet to win.
3rd Match
Haiti assured themselves
of victory in the goodwill
,series by defeating the tour
ists 2-nil in a fast, robust,
match on Wednesday night.
The President of the Re-
public and 27,000 people
saw Haiti's best team give a
spectacular display, equal-
led however by the heroi.l
!efforts of Jamaica full-back]
Lawrence and Williams
and the courageous goal-
keeping of Rhoden. YouthL
ful Rhoden, playing his
first game in his country'"!
colours, showed unsuspect-
,ed dash, as well as sound
judgment and anticipation,
The 2 goals scored off hinrr
were unlucky ones for Jai
maica. About midway in
the first-half Jacques at
right wing lifted the bali
high over the goal, Rhoderi
got under the ball, but, ap
parentiy dazzled, by the
floodlights, dropped the
catch, the ball rolling into

the net. The next goal
came a little later when
,left-wing Alexandre cen-
tred, and inside-right Dero-
siers shot hard. Williams at
right back, attempted to
block the shot, but in doing
so deflected the ball into
the far corer of the goal.
A few minutes after play
began, Lacossade, Tappin
and Dieudonne crashed in
the Haiti penalty area, and
Lacossade had to retire hurt,
Joseph substituting for the
remainder of the game. Jo-
reph, however, had little to
do, for Haitian footballers
kept the ball mostly in the
Jamaican half of the field.
The huge crowd rose in
excitement as the swift
Haiti forwards drew neat
geometrical patterns on the
field, and ,as the Jamaican
backs and Rhoden, frus-
trated their movements.

Injuries to the Captain
Dudley Smith and to Bay-
liss had weakened the Ja-'
maican side. The referee-
ing pleased neither the
teams nor the crowd.

Gentlemen :
.On Friday of last week,
July 18th, the United States
newspapers carried a story
reporting a proposed inves-
tigation by the United
States Department of Com-
merce of the foreign opera-
tions of several major 'oil
companies including .the
Standan. Oil Company (N.
J.) .Our Company in Haiti
is a division of the 'Esso
Standard Oil. S.A. which is
an affiliate wholly owned
by the Standard Oil Com-
pany (N.J.)

As you inay know, we
have served the people and
Government of Haiti more
-than thirty years, and we
are one of the largest and
oldest foreign companies
operating in the Republic.
For this reason we are hap-
py to quote below a state-
ment made by the Presi-
dent of the Standard Oil
Company (N.J.), Mr. Eu-
gene Holman, just received
by cable :

tion will once and for all

company foreign business.
'We do not believe there is
an international oil cartel,
certainly we are not a party
to one. I repeat flatly what
I said in a recent letter to
our three hundred thousand
,stockholders and employees
in connection with rumours
proceeding the announce-
menc of the investigation,
'this company is not a party
to illegal arrangements of
any kind anywhere in the
world. Our business prin-
ciples everywhere are in the
open. For. years we have
reported regularly to the
public of what we are do-
ing. We have informed in-
terested Government agen-
cies, including the Depart-
ment of Justice, of import-
ant steps as they have been
,taken. Our investments a-
broad have played a major
part in the economic recov-
ery of friendly nations.
They have been an import-
ant means of extending the
understanding and practice
of the American business
principles of free markets
and vigorous competition.,
Because of your interest
in Thappenings concerning
an organization which has
served Haiti so many years
and because of your desire
to present all sides of im-
portant news, we are pleas-
'ed to send Mr. Holman's
statement to be included as
part of your news coverage
to keep your readers in-

We might point out that
in Haiti Esso has always
operated in accordance with
the precepts' described by
Mr. Holman in his state-
ment, reporting regularly
to the Government import-
ant changes or steps as they
have been taken. At this
moment' a Government agen
cy is studying a suggestion
made by our Company
which may result in a re-
duced import duty on kero-
sene and a price reduction
to the (people' for this im-
portant fuel.

Today if you were to vis-
it the Marbial Valley near
Jacmel, Haiti, you would
find an unusual group of
people carrying rocks up a
hill under the hot, tropical
i-sun. You would find an
Italian girl and a Haitian
peasant -working side by
side with a boy from a
good Port-au-Prince family
-and -a white college boy
from Texas you would
see a girl from Mexico and
an American Negro assist-
ing a young man from
France and another from
New England. You would
see the Co-Director Jean
Christians, a naturalized
U. S. citizen from Belgium,
"working with a boy from
-British Honduras and two
young people from Haiti.
In the kitchen you might
see American Ellie Chris-
tians taking her turn on
kitchen-crew peeling pota-
toes with a Jamaican and a
You might think they
were all crazy. Possibly
many people would if they
were not ?;'are of the sig-
nificance of the project. For
-who ever heard of a person
traveling 5,000, 3,000, or
Even 20 miles, paying his
own way, to come to a tro-
pical country to work under
the scorching sun 8 hours a
day for hno wages?

The idea began a long
time ago when the Ameri-
can Friends Service Com-
inittee was begun to help
repair war damage after
SWorld War I. Volunteers
offered their services going
i,:. to France and Germany,
England and Russia. Since
S-then thousands of camps
b have been held, some only
two month summer pro-
J ects as this one in Haiti -
Ssome operating on a yearly
round basis. During World
War II many more people
!, volunteered their services
some of them college stu
J dents, some Conscientious
, Objectors, some Quakers,
some non- Quakers, some
Swho had no religious con-
victions whatsoever. Their
only tie was a feeling that
hnomehow, in these work-
S.camps. they could show
R. through working with peo-
%'ple of other nationalities
I'and beliefs that people
:iould cooperate and com-
munnicate instead of kill and
,hate. Here in small groups
which represented all races
Land classes and nationali-
ities and ethnic groups they
md, by working and
Thinking together, demon-
Ptrate that people could get
tong together if they tried.
.', In the period after World

War II, two Haitians went
to one of these camps. Then
two more went. They came
back fired with enthusiasm.
Here, they felt, was some-
thing sorely needed in their
own country.
With the help of the Phi-
ladelphia office of the AF
SC they formed a Haitian
Committee. They appointed
a chairman, Emmanuel Ga-.
briel-Francois, Director c.f
the UNESCO Marbial Val-
ley Project. They began to
plan. The first year passed
and in spite of their work
they could not get a camp
organized for that first sum-
That fall they began
again. With Gabriel still
as chairman, Paul Najac as
Treasurer, Roger Magloire
as Secretary-General and
several other members, they
were joined by Garvey Lau-
rant, a young agronomist
from SCIPA, and Jim
Echols, Director of Courses
at the Haitian American
Institute, the first American
on the committee. By spring
plans were well laid for a
project at the Lafonde
School in the Marbial Val-
ley. With UNESCO help
they would build a dam
around a spring and pipe
this dear, fresh water to
the school and community
of Lafonde where there was
only the muddy Marbial
River and water brought in
by truck.
"If this Haitian Commit-
tee is able to raise half of
the 1.500 dollars budget ne-
cessary to run the camp the
Friends Service Committee
would raise the rest,, came
The word from Ed Wright,
Director of the AFSC Over-
,seas workcamp division.
The committee set to work
and within two months
were near enough to that
goal to insure the camp com
.g to Haiti in 1952.
Next came recruitment.
Of the Haitian applicants
.eleven were finally selected
- six young men and five
young women some well-
to-do, some peasants, some
dark, some light some a
little doubtful about pick
and shovel work and dish-
washing, bdt all willing to
Last Thursday these ele-
ven Haitians met AFSC or-
ganizer and Mrs. Ed Wright
and Co-Director Jean Chris-
rians, his wife and the other
foreign volunteers represent
ing six different nationali-
ties. For three days the)
held an orientation pro-
gramme. They met His Ex-
cellency President Magloire,
took a trip to Kenscoff

ican football match, were
entertained by local resi-
dents including Mr. and
Mrs. Garvey Laurant, U. S.
Coast Guard Lt. Jay Day-
ton, French UNESCO work-
.er Madame Gillard, and Mr.
James Echols.
Monday morning at 4
a.m. they began to load sup
plies and knapsacks on to
their rented camion for the
'trip to Jacmel and Marbial.
They were ready to begin
their work. And today you
can see them piling rocks
beside the spring, carrying
bags of cement, and later
having a discussion group
or singing French, Italien,
Jamaican, or U.S. folk songs
as evening closes in.
Some people may still
think they are a little cra-
zy. If you were one of the
group you would know they
were not. You would know
that they had a good firm
grip on a very simple idea
an idea that may never
be strong enough to make
all peoples understand each
other completely but aa
idea which will leave these
twenty-three people with
the sure knowledge that its
accomplishment is not im-

An interesting visitor to
Port-au-Prince this past
week was Mohamed Ahmed
Allawala who is taking the
long way back to his home
;in Karachi, Pakistan, with
,a brand new Chemical En-
gineering diploma tucked
under his arm. Mohamed
recently graduated from the
Chicago, Illinois, Technical
Institute and is* heading
back to the Far East via the
West Indies, England and
France. During his three
days in the Haitian Capital
he was shown the town by
a bevy of friends, including
Dr. and Mrs. George Hudi-
court, Jacky' Auguste, Mile.
Monique Dreyfuss and Jean

Your Reporter learned
that Mohamed's father is
one of Pakistan's biggest
!importers and exporters of
chemicals. Mohamed him-
Iself may go to work for
a while for the largest Asia-
tic sugar mill, recently built
in the West Pakisan town
of Mardimn.
The young man, who has
an excellent sense of hu-
mour, explains that the
word Pakistan really means
pure land, but contains
90 million people that have
on occasion been referred to
as pure rascals,. However,
he defends his countrymen
by pointing out that the
Moslem-dominated Repub-
lic has stopped exchanging
blows with its fellow repub-
,lic Hindu-dominated In-
dia following 'a cease-
fire request from the United
Nations. The two c6un-
tries were created in the
troubled days after World
War II when Great' Bri-
tain finally agreed toparti-'
tion its old Colony and turn
the reigns of Government
over to national hands.

Mohamed reports that
during those five years of
Independence, his home
town of Karachi has swell-
ed in size from a city of
200,000 to a Capital of
1,500,000 people ..._many
of the newcomers being
Moslems returning from the
new state of India.
