KEEP DEATH OFF THE HIGHWAY
We are not going to wait until after the event be-
fore raising the alarm. Even though accidents have
been miraculously low, the fact remains that road traf-
fic in Port au Prince during the last few years has
become exceedingly dangerous. The new roads out of
the city are straighter and smoother and an invita-
tion to reckless speeding.
There is a triple menae. Nothing is harder to resist
sometimes than the temptation to put a big new car
through its paces, even though tie auto was built for
very different highways. A big fast auto never made a
fool of aily man, but alisays shows him up.
Equally more frequently dangerous than foolish car-
owners, are the care-free taxi and camionette drivers,
who either competitively or for the sport, hIurl their
vehicles past one another, to stop dead in mid-route
to pick up passengers. That little red flag they carry
often means, "I'm a menace, brother."
The third -we find comes from some of the ambigu-
ous signals often made by turning vehicles. We have
often paused in mystification while a truck driver con-
ducts a brisk symphony with his left hand.- We find
that if we misunderstand the signals, we are reward-
ed -(if the accident is averted) by other gestures, not
ambiguous, but either furious or rude.
The Traffic Department has so far installed sensible
signs, and well placed traffic lights. To complete these
precautionary methods, one more is necessary: a-wide-
spread road safety campaign by radio, press, and
visual signs the public must be made so safety con-
scious, that Haiti could well enjoy all the benefits of
the motor age, and still keep Death of the highways.

We suggest that retail merchants emphasize that families can
purchase goods having a wholesale value of up to $100 per person
and that -tourist boards and industry members, whenever it is
suitable, in their promotion and advertising do likewise.
CTA* in its promotion here will take the positive approach o:
highlighting this and that import duties on gifts in excess of the

import duties are traditionally based on the wholesale value o

tine Dancers' portions was Car-
men de Lavallade, whose -Lvo
dances were most original.
"Portrait of Billy", an inter-
pretation of the tragic Billy Ho-
liday, is complete with record-
ings of her blues songs and the
agonies of her addiction. With
crawling skin and the taking of
a craved fix, it is somewhat teo
graphic for poetic efiectiveness.
There is no denying its dra-
matic qualities, though, as Miss
de Lavallade combines with
James Truitte in some powerful
segments. "Letter to a Beloved,"
to music by Ravel, cannot be
called more conventional, but it
was certainly' more beautiful.
Fire Solo Popular
Popular with the audience was
the too-brief fife solo work by
Herblee, whose virtuosity with a
reed was absolutely astounding.

Sr. Federico Masson, well
known to Haiti as sportsman and
diplomat, has returned to Purt

August 9, 1961.
Dear Mr Diederich:
- One of your readers widie yon
last week to ask whether any-
thing was known about the mar-
chandes who supply this city with
its produce. As you know,- thli
is a question that has interested
me for some tiine. I find it very
easy to talk to the women who
buy and sell here, and they cer.
mainly do their best to anww'
my questions. But the market
system of Pert au Prinmo Is
amazingly complex;_ the more
one finds out, the- more there is
to learn. I decided to try to -put
down' some of the main back-
ground features of the market
system in a short article, aMdI
I hope you will consider print-
ing it. If you do, I hope further
that anyone who reads it wilL

SUNDAY AUGUST 13, 1901
Haitian Singer Tells 01
Local artists are a bit hard
to tradk down for interviews.
We ran into Auguste Durosier
at the Choucoune bar the other
afternoon and put a few ques-
tions to him about his career.
Starting with "What's new?",
Auguste tells us that. for the
past few months he has been
singing at the Sans Souci and
thie Caribe Haiti hotels, where
he had appreciative audiences
who did not sit on their hands
Auguste started his singing
career back in late 1955 when
he-first appeared at the Casino
International, singing in live
tongues, which endeared him .to
a variety of audiences, including,
the local nite-clubbers. Follo,.'-
ing that he sang at the- Riviera
Hotel and has since been heard
at the Montana, the Chouconrie,
Club Bacoulou, Ibo Lele, El Ran-
cho; in tact; he has become one
of Haiti's most applauded warb-
Where do you enjoy v.oiKing
most, we asked. His prompt re-,
ply was first, the Sans Snuci,
because of the atmosphere and
the temper of both audience and
AugusLe has an enviable repu-
tation outside of Haiti too. He
appeared at the Tropicana Club
in Havana in a Haitian review
called "Voodoo Ritual", and also
performed over Radio Canre in
Ciudad Trujillo in the Domninicn
Republic. There lie performed at
the Embajador's famous club
and was so popular the manag-
er of the club came oni-the floor
-and offered Auguste a case of
champagne, saying that he was
the third performer otiered such
a gill in appreciation of an ourt-
standing performance. Auguste
was scheduled to sing just lruee
songs that starry evening, but
the audience held him on for
Now Auguste wants to travel
and to perform e l-s e where e.

eials Leclerc Has
pects? Yes, he has a contract 11 O U= Mn n a now
to sing at the popular Blue Ang-
el in Chicago for six months,
starting in December. One of
the owners of that club heard
him sing here and signed him
up for the coming winter seas-
on. The Blue Angel specializes
in Caribbean entertainment.
Auguste, as "is the case with
so many Haitian artists, be vails
the fact that there is no such
lung in Haiti as a booking
agent. He had an agent in -Cuba,
but that one has disappeared
since the revolution. Asked what
he does about securing booldngs
ior Ihiniself lie replied that he
writes to various hotels and
clubs abroad, but because he is
unknown to them and has little
publicity to display, he must de-
pend mainly on people hearing
him in person here at home. It
would appeal that there is a
business opportunity 'iere for a
booking office to head Haitian
artists toward fame.
Durosier works although lie
suffers from the lack of stabi-
lity. which hangers artists in
Haiti, and the well-know n tough-
,ess of Haitian audiences. He
looks on the bright side of this
however, feeling that if he can
win o-,er a' Haitian audience, his
success outside is pretty well :is-
Any operatic aspirations? "No,
I'm 30 now and that field is
highly competitive. A lot of
Americans have told me to go
to the U.S. and get pn Belafon-
te's bandwagon, but I don't want
to compete with anyone. I just
want to be a good popular sing-
er, make a name and some mo-
ney for myself."
Any recordings? Yes, for the
,lusseau Recotrd Company in
Haiti. They sold well enough
but I really didn't like them my-
self. They were too commercial.
I would like to do a good record-
ing of international music with
a good band.
Auguste Durosier is coming up
the hard way but he's com-
ing up, and nothing beats a try
but a failure, and he's over that
hump already. All he needs is
exposure in the right places.

lines and Christophe had attemp-
ted to reconstitute the plantation

lacked the time and force nr-ed-

Haiti have argued that the eco-

stronger and more viable, had
the large estate system been,

mrimbhered that the Haitian peo
