The man who is guiding the

public was born 56 years ago in
the town of San Marcos, the son
of Anastasio Somoza and Julia
Garcia de Somoza. He attended
schools in the Capital city of
Managua, Granada and Leon,
and later studied) at tle Na-
tional Institute of the East and
the Peaice School in Philadel-
phia, Pennsylvania.

,While still a youth, General
Somoza enrolled in the Liberal
Party and by 1920 he was al-
ready well known on the ,Nica-
raguan political scene. Five
years later, he was named Rent
Administrator in the Depart-
m* ent of Leon but resigned his
post to take an active part in
the, Revolution directed by Dr.
Juan Bautista Sacasa, which
ended in the election of General
Jose Maria Moncada to the Pre-
sidend-y. In this regime, Gene-
ral Somoza occupied the follow-
ing pots: Governor of the De-
partment of Leon, Secretary of
the 'General Comnmandaht and
Minister of War. Later he was

... THE FIRST CARIBBEAN FESTIVAL


Thie. (Haiti Sun) was
given a first-hand account
this week of our Star Per-
formance at the' Caribbean
Festival in San Juan. In
fact. Guy Laraque of the
Tourist Office says that the
Haitian, artists drew the
greatest attendance and the
greatest applause of all the
acts of the Festival with
the Dejean Choir .walking
vff with top honours. Even
the Spectacle de Porto-Rico
did not receive such -a heat-
ed welcome from the audi-
ence. The. all-men's choir
gave -three additional' comrn-
mand performances, during
its sty .-- at the 'Hotel Ra-
da, the Caribe Hilton and
-the University Theatre ...
* each tite meeting with
.'equal- success.-
The. National Folklore
Trouve which: performed
the final night,'of 'the- Festi-
val never danced with.so
"-i- v.:v;dness and- gusto,
th-nks to the- painstaking
.r,"tro nf rhoregrapher Leon
De~tin6. Director -Andre Ger
main and Charles de, Cata-'
lobne, Administrator of -the
Theatre de- Verdure- who
prepared the programme.
Here is our interview
with Guy Laiaqle; Assist-
ant Director of the Natibn-
al -Tourist Office:..
-. Q. -. First,-! shouldd -like to
gwe my readers some back-
ground -of the--Festival. Can you
fell me where the idea of this
Festival came-from?
A.- In April 1950, the- Carib-'
tean Tourist Association, which
was then known-as the Carib-
bean Interim Tourism Commit-
te, held its-annual meeting- .in
San Juan; Puerto 'Rico.- As you
know,. the.. main objeti-ve of
this .Association is- to promote
tourismrrr in the Awest Indies- as
a whole. It occurredto one--of
the delegates-tco that San Juan
meetings that,'" to achieve.' thaS
joint -aifn. on' of thd' beht 'ways
would be to organize in the Ca-
ribbeanh- on a yearly basis since
cotttinuity is rule numnbeb one
of publicity, to organize 'a -great
-venrt in which" all the coun-
tries and territories of the area'
would be repreeitteid and where
every one of them .could have
a chance to show what they
,have got in the way' of 'tradi-
tions, folklore, arts and crafts.
This great event, the delegate
pointed out, held in summer,


would be a major attraction to
tourists and would help the
West Indies compete with Eu-
rope for the sunIurer vacation-
ist's dollars. Thus was born the
idea of the C ribbean Festival
The delegate who originated the
idea, I am proud to say, was
from Haiti. His name: Jean F.
Brierre, forffir Director Gene-
ra) of the National Tourist Of-
fice. -


UHAITI SUVNl


Q.- Why had Pierto Rico
been chosen as the place to hold
the Festival?

A While evqryboay con-
'cernad agreed the idea of the
Festival was wonderful, every-
body realized at thi sfime time
the actualization of the idea
would involve a multi-thousand
Collar.' expenditure II don't
know the exact figures yet, but
it is said to have cost Puerto
Rico between 50,000 dollars and
75,000 dollars) and furthermore

tions which, for instance, none
of the smaller Antilles could
achieve. Among the countries
which were in a position to un-
dertake such a big affaire, were
the Dominican Republic, Puer-
to Rico and Haiti (Cuba and Ja-
malca are not members of the
C.T.A.), Puerto Rico was the
first to beg the honour to, or-
ganize the first Festival. It was
to be held in August 1951, but it
had to be postponed because of
lack of time to prepare and es-
peciallyi to publicize the event.
-So, while C.T.A. was sponsor-
:ng the Festival, the Puerto
'Rico Visitors Bureau, a govern-
ment agency, had to do the ac-
tual organization. But, and that
i,. very interesting to know, -they
did not have the necessary mo-
ney. An individual offered to
lend it to them. Mr. waldemar
Lee, who was then Chairman of
the Executive Board of the P.R.

The production of the Festi-
val required a "tremendous a-
mount' of work and although

BURNED TO DEATH
IN CAILLE

A six-year-old boy was
burned to death last Friday
night at Carrefour Feuilles
when his grandfather's that-
ched-roof caille caught on
fire and panic stricken
neighbours forgot that he
was inside. The owner of
the caille,aged Ernes/ Au-
gustin, was barely saved in
time to avert a similar fate.
Firemen- called to keep
the flames from spreading
to nearby cottages, didn't
hear about the sleeping
youngster until it was too
'late to enter the building.
His charred body was later
found in the smoking ruins.

-TRANSPORT MIX-UP


This little island of lP1 mil-
lion people is recovering much
of its former freshness. That is
freshness of ideas. We general-
ly do, that every five years or
Sso. For we re young enough
to keep inprovising fresh novel
ties under the stress of circums-
:tances (largely external) over
which we really have no con-
trol.
Like the bus service that oper
: tes in the city of Kingston
for example. A native company
beaded by black-skinned H. J.
Lindsay holds the monopoly
bus franchise. Lindsay, in fact,
pioneered ,the city s bus servi
ce in the distaInt days when elec
tric trams were the main form
of transport. The trams were
scrapped in 1948. After that
Lindsay s service grew poor
and public complaints swelled.
r The Government party (JLP)
tried their best" with Lindsay
'but the Opposition (PNP) .made
the most of public discontent
to press for the service to be
V placed under public ownership.
"i -tist year the Government was
-forced to give in to public cla-
Smour, notified Lindsay that his
.-otopoly franchise would t
.be renewed this year.
Then to the public surprise,
.,one of 'the Oppositions s
bigwigs, Lawyer Harry Dayes,


put in a bid for the franchise
for his new company, a million-
dollar enterprise whose capital
was mainly put up by English
transport interests. The Opposi
tion shouted more Loundly for
public ownership, obviously to
hide its embarrassment. Public
opinion, dead set against Lind-,
say, closed behind Dayes with
whom the Government has
nearly concluded negotiations.
Now comes the funny side of
E'ory. Lindsay is doomed. But
during the past seven months
he has applied three times to
the Government for tax refunds
(on gasoline) as provided in
his franchise to meet deficits
in his company s trading.

His third application came
up this week. Lindsay claimed
that he needed the refunds to
meet' increased wages order by
an Arbitration Tribunal earlier
this year. So width various
quantities 'of water in. their
mouths, the .politicians agreed
to cough up -the money.
Meantime Dayes company
expected to start operations
about October ancq Lindsay will
go out. I learn that Lindsay
will transfer his operations to
Monrovia, Liberia, where he
has been awarded a monopoly
transport franchise for that city
which is 'now entirely without
any form of city service.

AND PARTIES, TOO

Our desire for novelty also ex-
tends to the political. For a
third political party is now in
the making. It, is being formed
by ex-Mayor Ken Hill who was
forced to resign from the
People s National Party last
March.

So Ken Hill' (yes, he s my
elder brother) has decided to
form a new NATIONAL party.
We 11 then have two national
parties (the PNP is the other
and older) and one Labour
Party ,led by PNP Leader
Manley s cousin Bustamante)
which is the governing party
now.

Spice is addea to this novelty.
that each party has attached to.
it a trade union. Busta has his
Bustamante Industrial Trade
Union. Ken s party has the
Trades Union Congress; while
the PNP goes them all one
better by having two trade
unions: the National Labour
Congress, a split-aWay from the
TUC last November and the Na
tional Workers Union which
Manley Formed in April after
Ken was ousted from the PNP.
Some puckish observes say
that it only requires a split in
the Bustamante camp and a
new union-party to ise and
you'll have a political situation
that would outrival the zaniest
situations in Alice in Wonder-
land.

Dear Editor: e
Don't pay any attention f
to rumours about this letter. M
True, it's six months over- a
due, but it's not a manu-a
script dropped in a bottle
that finally washed up on
the shore of Haiti.
tl
Certain unimpeachable
testimopy may have given Q
impetus to the circulation
of such stories because it's '
probably also true that41
was seen dropping empty
bottles over the blue Carib- P
bean as I was winging my -
way homeward/ last Janu-
ary. But all that is an- '
other story on which I will
fill you in when next we
breathe the rarefied atmos- 1
phere of Kenscoff, when we
can repeat the unforgettable
Sunday afternoon jeep-ride 1
up the mountain that you,
Jean and I so happily 'shar-

Don't judge too harshly
this seemingly outrageous
delay in writing. Like
Wordsworth, I've been con-
tempalting in tranquility
our fabulous vacation in
. Haiti. Jean and I have re-
d lived every moment of the
.fun we had there, treasur-

interrupted success here in
'this fast-growing country.
If you have a "spec, of
s available space, would you
e give consideration to the
- few enclosed original lines
e lenthusiaAically contributed
a to Haiti by me? Thank
:, you.

n Mrs. A. H. Geen.


HAITI I
Haiti, Haiti, you loo1 so dainty all dressed in jewels
rare
A bay of sapphire aqua at your throat, and amethyst-
tinted blossoms everywhere.
Your mountains and valleys swept with sunshine and
shadow and often, a sturdy breeze
That playsgthrough fronds of towering palms, and fo-
liage of various trees
And a sky of sunset gold, or tinted clouds of coral ahd
gray with streaks of blue
Are hung by Dame Nature for all to see; a heavenly
picture, so vast so true
That stirs within the humanbreast ,a sense of splendor
that brings-such joy-
Ah Haiti, it is not goodbye only Au revoir!

Tales From The Haitian

Countryside


by Franfois Marcel-Turesine

How Bouqui was Cooked
Into a Caladou of Lamb
Cric?
Crac!,
There were always so
many droughts in the land,
that the people themselves
wondered how they lived
through them. This drought
was so terrible that the ani-
mals died, for there was
not a green leaf for them to
feat.
This was hard on Bouqui
who loved to .ear goat meat;
but before things got any
worse he heard of a country
far away, called lambs'
country. There, only talk-
ing-lambs lived. Since lamb
is ,second cousin to goat,
Bouqui's favourite meat, he
thought it would taste as
good; especially as there
was now no goat to be had.
Sd he started to this coun-
try, hoping to find a way to
eat some of them.
After walking a great dis
tance, he arrived at the talk-
ing-lamb's country.
ccBonjou' Mesdames, bon-
.jou' mademoiselles, bon-
jou' M'sieurs! How is your
courage today?,. he- asked
them.
(Oh-oh., cried the lambs.
aNot so good, no, Com-
p r e. Because of the
,drought we are dying of
hunter.n
aOh-ohn, Bouqui said,
Risotto voce. "I'm glad there"
is a drought here, too. -It's
all the better.,, Then loudly
he went on, al know I
know that's why I am here.
I bring vou news from God
thar will please you.),

,,God blesses us. Blessed
be God,, said the lambs.
(You know, and I know,
we don't mind being bare-
footed and wearing just
pieces of tiger cloth around
lour waist.-- For this privi-
- lege we thank God. But as
for out stomachs, we have
)to put food in them. Now
Now there is no food: For
this I know we don't thank
- God. But He knows that,
that's why He sent me tc
help you'."
*Thank you. Thank you))
cried he lambs.
(Do you have a large
iron pot with a heavy lid tc
go with it?"
,,Bht yes, we have."
a-Well, build a great fire
and when it is burning well
put the pot, three-quarters
full of water, on the fire:
and then get ,as many heavy
stones, or maybe pieces ol
iron, as you can.,,
It took the talking-lambs

,,Oh!!! Oh!! Oh! Oh..."
cried the lamps and soon all
was quiet in the pot, except
that it continued to boil.


When the lamb calalou
. .- was done, Bouqui ate all he
S wanted and then took the
rest home for his family to
Pnjoy.
SBut one of the twelve;
little lambs who were fan-
ning the fire had not fol-
lowed" the rest into the pot.
'. He had escaped and hidden
among the sugar cane, and
I he watched what Bouqui
S''did. When Bouqui went

Across the mountains from
ambs' country.- When he
S'cold her of the tragic inci-
'dent, his godmother ran
outside and yelled sorrow-
fully until the news had
----reached the ears of every-


no time to prepare what
Bouqul had requested. Since
little ones were responsible
for making the fire burn, a
dozen of them came with
their palm husk fans to
fan it.
(Now,,, Bouqui said to
Ohem, "I'm going into the
pot; after. I settle in it put
he cover over me so that
the water, will get hot.
Then when you hear me
say, "The water is hot!), un
cover it and let me out.
And then you'll do like-
wise. When I uncover the
-pot for you to come out -it
will be filled with that de-
dliciously cooked meat mari-
nated -in eggplant which we
all love so much.),
So said, so done.
Bouqui jumped into. the
pot and was covered With
the heavy lid. After a
.while he cried, (The wa-
ter's hot! The water's hot!,,
The lambs quickly lifted
the lid, end Bouqui sprang
pbut. "Now it's your turn to
go in. We just can't wait
for his delicious 'eggplant
calalou., he said.
Every lamb in the lamb's
country got in line and
jumped into the pot, includ-
ing those little ones that
had been fanning the fire.
Bouqui put the cover on,
and, on top of that, all the
r stones and iron that he
could lay his hands on.
, Then he fed wood to the
fire, and fanned it with
. both hands.

Quickly the lambs cried
(a The water's hot! The wa-
ter's hot!,,
,eWait awhile, the cala-
-lou isn't done yet, Bouqui
, cried,
( (Oh! Oh!" cried the
s lambs, ,it mu. t be hot, be-
; cause we're cooking.,,
y "Just a while longer,

how good the calalou will

one. She held a nine day
novena for the repose of the
,souls of the lambs, and at
the end she took council
with her family, who con-
cluded that a way must be
found to get revenge on
Bouqui. They might have
to wait 'a long time, they
figured, but they would
have patience. The whole
family moved to lambs'
country to wait for an op-
portunity for revenge.

In several months Bou-
qui had finished eating the
Jambs he had brought from
the lamb's country. The
drought was still at its
height, and meat was still
scarce. Bouaui thought that
he should go back to the
lambs' country maybe
'there were a few more
lambs left scattered among
the bushes. He would find
a way to ger those, too. So
he started out as he did be-
fore, and ir did not take
him long tq reach his des-
tination.


(,Bonjou' Mesdames, bon-.
jou' Mesdemoiselles, bon- -
jou' M'sieurs. How is your
courage today."
,,Oh-oh,, cried the lambs.
((Not good at all, no. Be-
cause of the drought we are
dying of hunger.-
(1 Oh-oh,,, Bouqui said to
- himself, "I'm glad there's.
i -still a drought here. It's all
e the better.,, Loudly he
said, ,I know I know.
That's why I am here. I
bring news from God that
, will please you.,,
- .Winking at one another,
.the lambs said, aBlessed be
God."
Bouqui told the same
.story to them as he had told
Sthe others. All showed much
" .agerness about the idea.
Bouqui leaped joyously in-
* to the pot; and the lamlb
put the cover on, and thi

YARD BOY HELD RESPONSIBLE
FOR BRAZILIAN RESIDENCE FIRE


An .official .,investigation
commission h s reported
that a yard boy's negligence
uas to blame for the fire
which swept the Bourdon
residence of the Brazilian
Charge d'Affaires Louis Ca-
vadas, at 11.30 Sunday
night.
The flames first brust out
in the servants quarters and
spread to the house proper,
inflicting 6,000 dollars in
damages through the des-
trucrion of four rooms and
a great deal of furniture.
The toll might have been
much greater bad i- not
been for the prompt action
of the Port au Prince fire de
apartment under the, direc-
tion of Cipt. and Lt. Elie.


When no hydrant was found
on the scene, they made use
of the water in the swim-
ming pool of the Reinbold
,estate a short distance away
and after a tivo-hour strug-
gle had the flames under
control.
The Brazilian diplomat
had rented the house of
Emile Rouzier, of the firm
,of Hakime and Rouzier,
who ironically enough-
had begun talks with Mr.
Rony Chenet for a fire in-
surance policy. But the pol-
icy had not yet been taken
when the disaster occurred.
Earlier rumours that the fire
was started by a short-cir-
cuit have been discredited
,by investigators.

The first show, on Friday
night, wakwthat of Geoffrey Hol-
der Group; from-Trinidad. Very
urfotf nately, I did not qee it
itI@r: Bit I was told it was ex-
cellent, and belieVe it- very
easily, b eeause: of ttils: the
night Charles-= d Catalogne, Ti
Charles Qeorges (your photo-
,,gpaphes) and I arrived,.. we
went direct from the airport to
Sthp-theatre because we were -un-
able-to-find..a-.vaqaacy.- in the
S-hotels (incidentally, the publici-
ty for the Festival was very
well done. The proof is all the


hotels in San Juan, for that pe-
riod were filled up to capacity).
After the show, we were invit-
ed to the Faculty Club, where
every night the artists got toge-
ther to have a good time. There
Ti Roro was a-sked to play The
drum After Geoffrey Holder
heard him, he asked Ti Roro to
play again. Then he took off
-his dinner jacket, black tie and
shoes, and ,lamntd to the Haitian
rhythm, which wa': quite new
to him. It was a magnificent
ippr.ovisel show. Both he and
Ti Roro got a wild applause.
. The--14. groups. from 11 coun-
-tri'es and. territories of the


west Indies (Antigua, Trinidad,
Curacao, Virgin Islands, Puefto
Rico,'Martiniquej Surinam, Gre-
nada,. Guadeloupe, Jamaica and
Haiti (the Dominican Repub-
lic and Caba did not participate)
presented- shows very much va-
ried in e-sence and quality. The
following, in my opinion, should
be particularly mentioner:
- lo). Trinidad.- Besides Geof-
frey Holder Dance 4Croup, there
was another group from Trini-
dad,. Parcy Berde-Little Carib
Theatre.- They stylize very
much their folklore dances, in a
sdrt of Katherine Dunham man:
ner. Both groos -were rated by
public and *- experts as very
good.
2o) Puerto Rico.- This repre
sentatioA, directed by Lisa
-Lekis,7 was from an, artistic
Spointof view, one of the Festi-
a'l'd very best. It has been
mtich 'criticized' though, and one
El! Mjindo reporter, Juan Luis
Marquez.'even called it cmysti-
fication pure and simple be-
cause, he 'argued, the show was
announced as ,'Puerto Rico's
folkforii, contribution to the Ca-
ribbean Festival. -and was, in
fact, anything but folkloric.'

.3o) Surinam.-
plb sent two groups rl
Pu-erto Rico. One was perhaps
the worst of the Festival. The
other one,-e-khandsme w-cuple of.
oriental dancers (as you know,
about 30 per cent of Surinam's
population is East Indian)


loric opera presented on Fr
night by the. Haiti Chorus-
the most outstanding and e.
ordinary show of the, whole
tival Well,-. here is what
reviewer of El Mundo- w
about the Chorus :


%The Haitian Chorus is
amateur group which can ad
tageously -compete with
professional group. Good vco
common chord, clearness, s
of expression, shading in
of its meber, from the
known -s'ger, to the. maa

.. The chorus transfer
the stage with a great dram
sense the songs or a series
songs irt a theatrical wed, a
th6 Mackendal legend. The
sistance-was amazed by
quality of the performance
. Up" to .the present t
the Haitian Chorus has,re
sented all the Festival.s

As for the- National Folk
kGrouo, I can sincerely s5
hav-e never seen it "better t
it was in San Juan and, all
tors considered-- -the folkl

there was no other alteration
than that brought out by'the

Q:-- Do you-think our parti-
cijpafion- in Th: Caribbean Fes-
tival will be of any good to
Haiti?

A.-' Delinitely so. Not only.is
HAiti' better known and appike
ciate" hfovw in) Puerto Rico as in
th6 Caribbean in genail, bif
also I am convinced our parti-
cipation will benefit us in terms

Q.- D6 you think the Festi-

year?
A.- Tie country which or-
ganizes the. Festival spends al-'
,most all the money and takes
all the Bturden,, but -also, which
is only natural and. fair? gets
most of the profits. I think it
woul be desirable for Haiti to
get most of the Wofits from the.
next or one of the next Festi-
vals.

one number, a sort of voodoo
