Week In Haiti Arrives 3 Years Lati


The ",Eposition Grounds
glittered invitingly under
the tropical sun for a belat-
ed visitor last week an
American housewife who
had won a free trip to Hai-
(ti's World Fair in 1949 but
was just too busy to take it.
M1Vrs. Clifford Petrie of
Manhattan Beach, Califor-
nia, explained her tardiness
,by saying that she and her
husband had plans all set
for their voyage to Port au
Prince on three different oc-
casions but each time the
cares of their growing fam-
ily of two .boys and two
girls forced them to stay at
home;
The -fourth try, however,
was successful. The Petries
stepped off the plane at Bow
en Field Tuesday morning
and were given a rousing
welcome by Tourism Offi-
cial Guy Laraque and Mr.
Edouard Benjaminrl, Chief of
the Tourist Office Jnformna
tion Service.
Even though. they were
three years too late to view
the exhibits at the Exposi-
tion, they had plenty. of
other exciting sights to keep
them busy. With Mr. Ben-
jaimin as guide, they toured
the Capital area, paid a visit


to Thorl-and, dined at Le
Perchoir, visited the Mu-
seumns, the Art Center. look-
ed bver the murals at the
Episcopal Cathedral a n d
dropped in for a chat with
Tourist Director Guy Dou-
yon.

O'Neill And Pala Make
Pic Book On Haiti
One of the most interest-
ing books on Haiti in a long
time is now in the process of
being done by Arthur O'Neill
,top New York *photographer
now residing in Haiti.
,A picture book on Haiti
has 'been long/ awaited here,
and now there appears to be
more than one on the way
to press. But O'Neill with
the collaboration of Dolores
Pala who *is doing .the text,
feels the time is xnow! He
and Mrs. Pala. have been
hard at work; taking shots
all over the countryside
.hese past few weeks and
have, almost. half the pictu-
res done, already. Asidb from
being an -nteresting., book 'in
itself itiwill serve as. a strong
stimulant to the tourist
trade next year.
.One of Haiti's most ar-


dent admirers and a resident
of 3 years standing, O'Neill
is also one of New York's
top ,flight photographers
who for years -had some of
the 'most famous national
advertising accounts.

He and Mrs. Pala have
set out to show Haiti as' she
is unimaginatly beauti-
ful, vivid, strikingg and
proud. There will be rough-
ly 75' photographs, an intro-
duction and an explanitory
text.
So as the book may be as
;omrrplete and authentic as
possible O'Neill invites 'all
phot6graphers,- amateur and


any pictures'they might bn,-
sider outstanding. If theta$
are accepted credits will,
course,. be given.
Please address all inqj-Y|

A Letter To Visitors


Dear Visitor from the States,
I would like to tell you something about my Cafeteria.
I have lived in your Country long enough to know "hat Ameiicans,
as a rule, put cleanlines next to godliness. Well, my Cafeteria compares
favourably with the cleanest restaurant in your home-town. All men andl
women working in it are required each mon'" to pass a thorough medical
examination. The place itself is spick and span. All glasses and plates are
thoroughly sterilized before use. Pasteurised milk is served only. And
le modem toilets are at your disposal.
I also know the very popular American expression : Mmm
cThis is just about as. good as what Mothet used to make! s. So I am
employing a i highly paid French Chef to get the same kind of remark .
from my patrons. And to complete his task, 7 have added to the Menu
a list of the choicest domestic and imported liquors. And to have the
L foods and the drinks still more welcome, you will have it served to you
by young girls, well-trained and well-dressed and quite pleasing to
the eye.
L know too, that Americans are practical people. They are apt to
E splurge when splurging is the thing. But usually, especially nowadays,
they take a very dim view of high prices. So compared to other places
in Port-au-Prince, catering to American Clientele, my prices are delight-
fully low. And this is not done by lowering the quality of food served.
You see, I own the largest Grocery, Bakery and Dairy in the Country.
Local-grown food is brought directly from my plantation. Pastry, bread ."
and cakes are -"ade in my Bakery. Imported food is ordered directly. -
from Foreign Producers." This way the middle-man, that very costly
item in the price of food, is completely eliminated.
Now, where is this Shangri-La, I am talking about? Well, it's
ideally located not too far from the pier you are so anxious to get
away from and not too far from it for the distance to annoy you. Itfs
located near the Civic Center a.a0 in the most important section of
Qrand'Rue (Great Street, in plain English, Main Street).
How t, jet there ?... If you don't like the looks of the narrow and
quite .uneven Haitian sic' walks, take a taxi. It will bring you to my
t Cafeteria on a couple of irmutes at the cost of ten American cents, which
is the legal price. (If the Chauffeur charges more, it means he is trying
to make a fast Gourde). If you are more adventurous or want to get a
better look at the life of the City, you might hoof and get there in
fifteen or twenty minutes. To avoid difficulties, please follow my direc-
tions. Go East, straight ahead from the pier, for three bloc,.s. When you
are past the great ahd strange looking building with towers (public
market-place) you are on the rirand Rue (Main Street). Now turn to
the right and walk South, past the market for four blocks and a het
till you see quite a few trees in front of a three-storey. On the right side
of the Street facing the school is my Cafeteria. Near the top of the-
wall facing you is the word Cafeteria. At night this word is displayed
y in neon light. The name on the front of the building itself is Boulangerie.
St. Marc. If you come to my place at night, just go in under the sign:
ENTREE, and walk up to the second floor. But if you come before night-
fall, walk into the Grocery Department and through it to the staircase
or rather to the lift leading up.
3, The following paragraph is somewhat on the personal aide. I might
call it a confession. You see, I did start my Cafeteria as a Cafeteria.
But American visitors wanted more than just that. And, as they spy
in the States, Customer is always right. So, eventually, my Cafeteria
became just what II is now a Restaurant with a Bar. It is a misnomer
to call it a Cafeteria. But the name stuck. That's why I still call it
The Cafeteria instead of calling it The Star, The Hollywood Cafe or
The Dew Drop Inn or Lydia Bailey's Chateau or something like that.
There are two floors t'- the Cafeteria. The first floor is the Restau-
So rant proper, with a Bar. The second floor is for the overflow. The second
floor has also a large space for dancing. Both floors have .spacious balco-
nies where you can eat or sip your drinks and watch the -olourful streair
of Haitian life flow below.
If your French is nil or wobbly, there are three persons in ti'-
premises speaking perfect English :
1) Mr. Juste Conslant, my secretary, a tall, dignified, graying,
gentleman, quite dark of visage and of the whitest heart imaginable.
2) Mr. Issa Saba, a Syrian from Palestine, a lean good-looking
fellow with an eagle beak nose, very pleasant and intelligent.
3) Ms.s Heise-Peters, the Cafeteria Manager, who in addition to
English and French speaks also German. A very sympathetic person
'a'S indeed!
ely I might add that three of my children also speak English well, but
lity unfortunately (or, fortunately ?) they are at present in New York, eating
ice. up the profits I make selling cheese from Holland, beef from Argentina,
1o- razor blades from the U. S. A. In return for this, they are studying hard
in New York Universities and trying to absorb American Culture. That's
ing what they say anyway. I wonder!
*ra,
nd 1, the proprietor, am quite'difficult to locate. Yes, I am always in
,all one place at a time. But even Mr. Constant, my Secretary, a great deal
of the time only knows that I am just somewhere between here and
there. Well, a man gotta be really on the move nowadays when handling
the two main sides of business : Loss and Profit, and trying to make the
3---- second come out on the laughing end.
Well, dear Visitor from the North, the taste of the pudding is in
the eating. Mind putting that saying to use now-darkening the doorway
of my Cafeteria and brightening the pretty faces of my waitresses ?...
And you bet I'll be smilling too!
Cordially yours,

.-. CLAUDIEN EDOUARD ETIENNK.

SUNDAY, .SEPT. 21st


Pageg _8 uHAITI SUN,,
t'age 8 _ _ _ _ _ _ _


I .have ,been absent from
these pages for over two.
months.' I know you don't
care. The Editor tells me
that not one of you inquired
as to why aWise and Othet-
wise* no longer appeared.
Only one person asked me
about it. (Thank you, Fred).
But I'mi .going to tell 'You
why, -just for spite.
You see, I have been ill
An infection of my jaw gave
Mie inflammation of the
brain. I kept hearing Voices
and seeing Visions. I tried
Grant's Whisky. It helped.
The Voices were clearer,
and, when I drank enofigh,
I could see two of every-
thing. But that was not the
kind of help 'I needed. So I
went to see Miarcel.
I found him on his porch,
reading the cMeditations of
Marcus .Aurelius. I asked
;hin, heard Voices?,) (Certainly>,,
,he replied I'.m not deaf.))
,,. kept my temper and ex-
plained. (What I mean, Mar
eel, is have you ever heard
"Voices when you are all a-
,lone nobody near you?)
uOften,. he cracked, cover
'. the radio. )
Marcel, I think, is some-
times too flippant.
However, when he finally
realized I was serious and
in trouble, M1arcel listened
carefully to my tale, then
suggested that I see Haiti's
. -Jeading psychiatrist, w h o
maintains an establishment
in Petionville for the treat-
anient -of mental disorders.


.I went to see him. I saw
him several times. It is a
good thing I did. in view of
what happened later. Other-
wise, I might be today a ray
ing madman, instead of the
calm, well poised person
whose dignified 'bearing and
polished manners you have
alhvays envied.

The Flying Saucers were
first reported as having been
seen by a P.A.A. pilot over
the Ile de la Tortue. I asked
1V\r. Jarman about it.. He
said that there was no truth
in the story, and that P.A.A.
.planes do not fly over la
Tortue. But sdmre tourists at
El Rancho said that they
raw them and the story
spread. Port au Prince was
buzzing with wild tales.
They had been seen at Jac-
mel, at Jeremie one of
them had landed at Cap Hai
ien. They were globe shap-
*-ed- they were shaped like
dirigibles. They were blue,
green, fellow, red. All ru-
mnour. of course.

Then it happened! The
Flying Saubers came to Port
au Prince. Five of them, in
a V formation, flying slow-
ily out of the sunset, across
the ibay, in the twilight sky.
Marcel had been spending
most'of his spare time in my
comrpany,-as he was wor-
'ried about me. When the
BSaucers appeared we were
sitting, together with Edith
Efron and Byron Coroneos,
at a table in front of the Bar
d'Italie in the .Exposition


WISE and OTHERWISE
By T. / Grant


,grounds. Byron, as usual,
had his camera with him.
When 'we saw them, we
jumped to our feet and rush
ed to the water front near
the statue of Columbus to
get a better view. We watch-
ed them come in. Great dis-
cus shaped objects, dark am
ber in colour, they glided
through sp?"e with no visi-
'ble means of propulsion. In
a few minutes they were
overhead. There they stop-
ped and hovered, about a
thousand feet up. There
was no sound of motors.
Byron slipped a telescopic
lens on his camera and start
ed taking pictures like mad.
By this time crowds had
gathered on the Exposition
grounds, and more were
pouring in, on foot and in
cars. The streets of the city
were alive with people star
ing at the visitors from out-
er space. There was no
doubt that the discs were
not of earthly origin.
Suddenly the Saucer form
ing the point of the V start-
ed dropping downward. It
,stopped about fifty, feet a-
bove the statue. A small-
port opened- on the edge.. of


the disc, and a voice boom-
ed out over the Exposition,
saying, in perfect French,
gIn about ten minutes this
machine will land on your
airfield to make certain ob-
servations necessary to com-
plete our mission. You are
warned to keep a distance of
at least one hundred meters
from us. Those of you who
idiscibey will ',be punished,
quickly and unpleasantly.
Remember this and spread
'the warning.) There was
\o accent that I could dis-
tinguish and the voice' was
what we call, for want of a
better word, cultured. It
was also one of the voices
I had been hearing for the
past few weeks!
The ,port closed as the
disc shot upward to its for-
mer .place in the formation,
and all five then took off in
it h e direction of Bowen
Field.
There was a mad rush for
-cars. Mine was nearest and
the four of us fought our
way to it. The massed
crowds were -pushing to-
wards the Grand Rue, so I
was able to slip quickly
through the stragglers, get

had seen what had happen-
ed to Edith. But the mass
pf the crowd had no inkling,
or fear of danger. They
kept pressing, pressing.
I felt what seemed to be
a slight electric shock. Mar-
cel who was 'beside me,
g'isped. I looked' at him.
There was not a hair on his
head; his eyebrows and eye
lashes were gone. A premo-
nition kept me from laugh-
ter. I put Mty hand to my
own head. Except for a few
scars it was as smooth as a
billiard ball. Looking around
I saw a sea of shining scalps.
Not a rmian, woman or child
in that vast throng had a
hair left on head or face.
The crowd became a. mob.
It went maJ. Roaring, howl
Fng screaming it pressed
and pushed nearer and near
er to the Saucer, which was
now completely hidden from
sight by the green vapor. I
was within about ten yards
of it, when it took off,

blinded everyone on the
field.
As my eyes became again
accustomed to the darkness,
I noticed something stranEe,
felt it and saw it. My belt.
was no longer binding my
waist, my shoes no longer
inchedd my feet. I put my
hand on my chest. It was
bare. The only thing left
on my body that nature had
not put there was imly wrist
watch. I looked at my neigh-
bour. Then 1 realized what
had happened.
By that blinding flash of
light every living soul in
that crowd of twenty to their
ty thousand people had been
stripped stark. naked !
The tumult and the scream
ing died. For a few mo-
ments there was stillness.
Then somebody moaned.
The kind of moan you some
time hear from a mother
whose child's coffin is being
lowered into the grave.
Other sounds were heard,
growls of frustrated rage,
the whimpers of frightened
women, voices filled with
despair, voices wailing, voic-
es weeping, sobbing with
outraged modesty, and here
and there giggles. The voice
of the mob was no longer
shrill, but deep toned, like

London Sugar
Conference

Diplomat Love Leger, Hai-
tian Minister to -Great Bri-
rtain, has been chosen to re-
present Haiti at the vital Su-
gar Conference that will
open in London the 29th of
this month. During the
session, Our Republic will
make an urgent plea for a
boost in its export qt.: ta of
this,. important Haitfin pro-
duct. It has good grounds
to back up its appeal. When
the quota was s6t, there was
only one refining plant open
in Haiti HASCO. But now
our sugar production will be
tripled tby the opening of
two 'new Refihing Plants.

'The Chamber of Deputies

new Contract 'the Govern-
ment has made with Haba-
nex Compay for the re'rival
of the figue-banane industry
in, Haiti. The Company, un-
der the terms signed by its

ant step in HIaiti's march of
