Closing Exercises For

Adventist Extension

School


On Saturday, August 12, the
closing exercises were held for
the theological extension school
attended by some 60 adventist
pastors and workers from Haiti,
the French West Indies, and
French Guiana.

In presence of the Honorable
Secretary of State, of Foreign
Affairs, and of Religion, Mr.
Chalmers, Profe s s o r Kenneth
Vaz in his address placed accent
on the value of a Christian edu-
cation and also on the import-
ance of following studies and in-
creasing knowledge to the end
that each person, whatever his
age, might become a profession-
al in his special line.

With a warm congratulation
for each one, Pastor C. L. Pow-
ers, gave certificates to the fol-
lowing: Abdonel Abel, Marcel
Abel, Charles Adolphe, Herman

asson Belizaire-Prosper, Eugene

The ceremony was closed by
a moving service of'-consecra-
tion. Veteran Pastor F. D. Ap-
pollon, holding aloft a lighted
torch, bade the younger men to
carr the torch of truth where
his feet were no longer able to
go. Symbolically he gave the
torch to the youngest pastor pre-
sent, Ner Jean-Pierre, when the
latter answered volunteering his
youth for the service of his Mas-
ter. Then one after another the
heads of the different Adventist
organizations came forward and
seizing the torch solemnly pro-
mised with their colleagues to
remain faithful to the Christian
ideal and to follow the goal tire-
lessly until final victory.

The next day the French de-
legates left our hpspitable island
accompanied to the airport by
dozens of friends with whom
they had become acquainted in
Haiti.

-Minister Constant rev e a I e d
that plans are made and invita-
tions issued for a tremendous
football tournament scheduled,
at this time, to fall on Decemb-
er 24th. With the assistance of
the Haitian Football Federation,
teams from Honduras, Salvador
and Costa Rica will be asked to
participate.

A pin-pointed publicity camp-
aign is under way, with the M.
A. Lockhard Agency of New
York in charge. Press, radio and
television represent t a t i o n has
been invited and it is expected
that the Festival, with its occ-
urrence just two weeks before
the actual tourist season opens
on December 15th, will be a
genuine boost to tourism for the
1961-1962 season. It will lure
many visitors from all walks of
life, including the winter vaca-
tioners who seek such displays
in foreign countries, the art lov-
ers among whom Haiti has a
high place, the literary world
hungry for feature story mater-
ial, the photographers looking
for exotic material, the dance
world which has appreciated,
-Haitian folklore and artistry for
years, and the curiosity seekers
as always, to name a few. Much
good publicity ,will be received
by participating hotels during
the pre-Festival campaign.

Mr Erns\ Casseus will act as
co-ordinator for the beauty con-
tests, with which he lias had
much previous experience, and
promises well organized, clean-
cut operations with, as Mr Cas-
seus put it, the invaluable guid-
ance of Minister Constant. It is
planned that for the final events
of the contest for Miss Pan
America, Miss Haiti will invite
the former Miss Haiti, Claudi-
nette Fouchard to return as her
personal guest. Both the Minis-
ter and Mr Casseus stressed the
point that the Miss Haiti selected
will be truly representative of
this Isle des' Fleurs, both as to
face, figure, bearing and culture.

In' a -discussion of the plans
for the Festival, Director Hono-
rat pointed out that while a glo-
bal count reveals that the tour-
ist figures for this and last year
have jumped from 72,000 to
about 90,000 so far, the increase
has been mainly due to visitors
from the cruise ships who spend
only a few hours in port, but
that the influx of tourists by air
is down some 4,000 under last
year's count. Mr Honorat and
his Department recognize and


are working to correct the lack TIRE CAR PERSON
of planned publicity for Haiti's
tourism to bring her into her
proper position among the Carib-
bean islands.
The timing of the Festival to
precede the annual Carnuval and
Mardi Gras attraction by four or
five weeks was carefully work-
ed out to give added impetus to
the flow of tourists to Haiti to
start the 1961-62 season off with
a hang and to reap the benefits
of that send-off on through the CrRP-IRTIE
Spring and Summer months.

PUNTA DEL ESTE


The first, point that everyone
v.ill make about the Declaration
of Punta del Este is that the
%\ords are pious hopes. They can
mean nothing until they are put
into effect-if they are put into
effect.

But, if we cannot be starry-
t.,ed about the Alliance for Pro-
Lress plan, it does, as President
I:ennedy said in his message to
the Punta del Este meeting, re-
present an 'effort of "towering
dimensions." The Declaration
signed yesterday "marks only
the bignning of our labors,"
said Secretary of the Treasury
Douglas Dillon, who headed the
LUuted States delegation.

To say these things is not to
depreciate the accomphshments
if the conference. Nor would it
P quite fair to say that there
ave been many such "Oeclara-
ons" in the past that never
*ame to fruition. There are new
actors in this moment of histo-
y, a new urgency, a new and

Ernesto (Chel Guevara, expoun-
ding for the first, time at a hem-
ispheric meeting the principles
of socialism, and a planned eco-
nomy. The other twenty nations
agreed in the Declaration that
'this alliance is founded on the
principles that free men work-
ing through the institutions of
representative democracy can
best satisfy man's desires." To
demonstrate this is what Presid-
ent Kennedy, in an earlier pro-
nouncement, called "our unful-
filled task."
In truth, we too are embarked
on an effort in planning, a vast
effort on a hemispheric scale.
We are all together trying to
plan the economic development
of Latin America. It will involve
public financing to an extent un-
known in the past.
There is a new emphasis on
the goal of social development,
first put forward at the economic
conference in Bogota. Colombia.
in September. 1960. There is an
especially clear realization now
that the success or failure or
the Alliance for Progress plan
depends upon self-help by every
Latin-American nation.

ricans don't feel they are human
beings unless they own an auto-
mobile- and for many of us,
it cannot be more than three
years old or we may almost die
of shame. For those who choose
to consider this less ridiculous
than aspiring to own sunglasses,
so be it but it is fundamental-
ly the same sort of aspiration.
The Haitian habitant learned
to like better food than the plan-
tation owner gave him, and pur-
chased suh food with the money
he earned through trade. He ac-
quired a taste. for bread flour,
and to this day calls it "farine
France." He learned that wear-
ing shoes is a mark of respec-
tabdity. He needed a mininium
of china in order to serve coffee
properly to his guests. He acquir-
ed a strong taste for blue denim
cloth which still persists. If he
can afford it, he prefers a bed
to a banana-leaf mat. He also
has a strong desire to educate
his children, and we should be
,the last to ridicule this aspira-
tion, however hrmted the peas-
ants' means may be to fulfill


demands made on the peasantry
by the state, in order to acquire
the funds it needed-and needs-
in order- to maintain its func-
tioning. The aim of taxation
should be to provide the basic
services a .people require and
cannot themselves supply -for
m e d i c a facilities, -education,
transportation, and the like. The
peasantry had to have means-to
acquire cash in order .to meet
these demands. And again, it.
was through' the production of
salable products that this prob-
lem had to be solved.

The peasantry hence under-
took to produce "items' for .sev-
eral different purposes. One
was,,to provide most of its own
basic subsistence. It is not ac-
cidental that the main root crops
produced here are called "vlv"
by the. peasantry: yams, sweet
potatoes, malanga, taro, manioc,
and the tree crops such as plan-
tains and bananas are like "life"
to the country folk. To these
must be added the grains: mil-
let, maize and rice. Maize is in

began active Directorship of the
famous Camp Utopia.

SMr Lebow recently sold the

York. Today more than 20,000
children receive the benefits of
camping.
The Liebows are interested in
Haiti/and will spend two weeks
travelling into the interior. Mrs
Liebow is a retired teacher and
social worker. The couple are
vacationing at El Rancho. They
are already making plans to
bring back to Haiti cultural,
educational and medical assist-
ance.
One of the projects they are
most interested in is a sort of
"Tanglewood" of art and music,
and a 2-week festival for Haiti
in the near future.

We wish them the greatest
success and know they will re-

"**Those holes in the road across from the Red Carpet were
repaired even before this paper went to press. Hope the next one
they fix is that dangerous one alongside Dr Denize's clinic on the
approach to the little pont. '**last Friday night a demon was
reported seen on the Petionville Road around the Montana entr-
ance. A man in his tl caille heard a "clop, clop, clop" kind of
noise and went out to investigate. He says he saw a queer looking
man in a strange outfit riding a horse, which proceeded to ride
right up the mountdinsidc "'*Grand Rue, where it starts at Por-
tail Leogane, disappears from sight entirely each heavy rainfall
these evenings. So does the end of the Boulevard and the Martis-

al skin-diver. ""Cafenol is the name of one of the maintenance
men at a local hotel. Imagine going thru life with a name which
makes everyone think of a headache. Didn't his mother love him?
'"The bulletins of the Inter-American Hotel Association don't pull
any punches. Look at these two quotes from the latest issue: "If
the IAHA can show two hotel men how to be friendly and honor-
able competitors our existence is juistified."... "There are still
some unfortuiate cities where hotelmen pay taxi-dinvers and
others to direct guests to their doors, even diverting them from
hotels previously selected. Many sad examples of this practice
prove that there is no end to this bribery, no honor among such
cab-driers. and soon the hotels have lost their profits through
tribute to an unworthy group. Such subjects will be a part of the
agenda at our VII Congress." That Congress is to be held from
Sept. 16th to ?:hd at Sao Paulo. Brazil, with the Travel Congress
until the 30th at Rio de Janeiro. Well, here's hoping! Sometimes
it takes longer than other times, but the price is always too high.

intendent early morns. '"End of story of that picture missing

guest divulged that the empty picture frame was on the luggage
rack when he checked in, and the picture never was on the wall
during his entire sta.. Ha! Must have been an inside job. '"Road
Maintenance fooled me again. On Friday morning the hole near
Dr Derrize's office was being repaired! Well. if I must be fooled.
that's the way I like it. *''A random count at one of Haiti's big-
gest hotels shows guests who hate come from 52 different coun-
tries and, of course, every state in the U.S. Li'l ole Haiti is like
the proverbial mouse trap. Sooner or later everybody beats a path
to its door. And these days its harder to get out than to get in.

U Boat To Help In Haiti


SURPLUS CRAFT TO TAKE
PART IN 6-YEAR PROGRAM

(In The New aork Tiqaes)

MIOREHEAD CITY, N. ., :Aug.
--An eighty-five-foot p a-t r o
boat will start changing here
soon from Navy, gray to hospital
hite. before going to Haiti -to
elp fight a war against tuber-
:ulosis. I
The craft has. been obtained
rom the Navy as surplus by the
private North. Carolina Tubercu-
osis Association. When funds to
finance the project have been
raised, she will start w\Cork oif
southern Haiti's mountain dist-
-ict of Jeremie as a laboratory
or the production of tubercul-
,sis vaccine. She is elected to
;o into action in November.

about a third-of the 70,000U ne-
cessary for the first year's work
is in'hand." "
The North Carolina Tubercu-
losis Association is'sponsoring a
six-year control program in co-
operation with the Government
of Haiti. The idea grew out of
Dr Vandiviere's previous work
in Haiti as a consultant. ,
The work will cost about $50,-
000 a-year after the first year,
Dr. Vandiviere said.
The craft will be debarnacled,


Although the site will be Haiti,
the results of the program will
be felt in the United States and
elsewhere. The effectiveness of
tuberculosis vaccines now in use,
as well as a new pne called R-l,
will be'tested in mass vaccina-
tions.
R:j was developed by Dr Van-
'diviere, -who is director of re-
search of the North Carolina
state sanatorium system. and by
Dr. H. S. Wills, also of Chapel
Hill, superintendent-director of
the state system and president
of the National Tuberculosis As-
sociation.
Dr Vandiviere said R-1 ap-
peared to be better than the vac-
cines now being used. He said
it had been used safely on 10,000
experimental animals and 1,700
persons.
Besides the mass vaccinations,
the program will include a sur-
vey to determine how much tu-
berculosis there is in tie district
and where it occurs; treatment
of infected persons; and training
of'Haitian doctors, nurses, tech-
nologists and sanitarians to car-
ry the fight to other parts of the
Caribbean nation.

After six years the Americans,

cause tuberculosis is the nation's
worst health problem. It has
been estimated, he said, that 300
to 350 of every 100,000 Haitians
are killed by the disease.
The death rate in the "United
States is eight per 100,000.

The boat is needed, Dr Vandi-
.icere explained, because Jeremie
has no electric power and few
miles of usable roads.

"To be fully effective, the vac-
cine must be prepared daily with
electricity and technical equip-
ment on hand," he said.
The boat is also needed, he
said, to shuttle program person-
nel to the shores of sections
where they will be working.

Naive Art OfThe World


PREFACE TO RECENT EXPOSITION IN GERMANY
AT WHICH HAITI EXHIBITED


During childhood we: live i
naive life aitlhin a world of gi\-
en realit.. One da., we imagine
this naile form of li\in2 should
be replaced .1h:, true Icronc.pt-


for their Zagreb Art Gallery. Mi-
sa Basicewic is the director,
spol.ic.ilng t:e n:.ive painters of
his country. He contacts and en-
courages them not forgetting
to warn them of false trends. He
is backed by Oto Bihalji-Merin
of Belgrad, who in 1959 published
a book, at Cologne, hearing as
tile, the name we have given
our exhibition "Das naive Bild
der Welt". In Jugoslavia, art,
being based on folkpainting and
tradition, is exerting profound
influence in favour of Naive Art,
and a metarmorphosis is being
brought about.

Although we had originally
planned to confine the exhibition-
to the 20th century and particu-
larl3 present-day representativ-
es, \%e later decided to refrain
from a comprehensive survey on
these lines, in falour of an.exhi-
bition distinctly showing the dif-
ferent emotional terms of ex-
pression of the Naive World; the
\aried language used by out-
standing and individualistic re-
presentatives, who as yet, do not
belong to the group of the well-
known in Germany. In order to
demonstrate the variety of indi-
vidual expression, "the language
they speak", we are showing at
least six pictures of each of the
artists. By this means, we are
hoping to give the exhibition to
creat scope we consider due to
Naive Art It has been soggest-
ed by our Jugoslavian friends
who have collaborated with great
enthusiasm,, to arrange further
exhibitions of Naive Art toge-
ther with them, from time to
time.

Owing to this the exhibition
does not contain all the five out-
standing French representatives
-it is Wilhelm Uhde's never-to-
be forgotten merit to have dis-
covered them. One of them, Se-
raphine, is being reserved for a
further exhibition. Holland, En-
gland, Spain and parts of South
America are not represented ei-
ther. Of German painters only
Trillhaase ha s been included
and one other representing n
border-line case between art and
naive art. There are a great
number of naive painters whose
pictures are not on show this
time -but we would like to in-
clude these as the "imaginary
part' of the exhibition- which,
we believe, will fulfill an essen-
tial purpose for both partici-
pants and non-participants. An
exhibition of German painters
should be assembled later.

Besides photos of Jugoslav
tombstones and of Brassai's Pa-
ris house walls, there are a cer-
tain number of pictures In this
exhibition ivteqded to serve as
a means of comparison and as
a guiding line for non-familiar
aspects. Folklore and folk-art-as
being the origin of Naive Art is
not being demonstrated to any
great extent; there will a spe-
cial exhibition on this subject at
the Swiss Museum for National
Art at Bale in. autumn.

Their help and all the valuable

by the sponsorship of artistic
amateur work by Guocho\iak

Georg Schmidt -all these have
contributed largely, towards the
making of this exhibition; in-

DEDICATION OF NEW ADVENTIST
CHURCH IN MARTISSANT,-


On Saturday, August 5, a large crowd of people gathered around
the new Adventist church building in Martlisant. When the church
doors opened at I o'clock, the ba:nctnary nas rapidly lled to over-
flowing with members and visitors.
For several years the hundreds of Adventists in this section of
the city were very modestly housed in a small dwelling kindly
loaned them for their services. They lookeJ forward to having
a comfortable church of their own. The new ed.fice built aloig
simple modern lines, commands the respect of the f ithf'l memb-
ers and invites them to prayer.
The dedicatory sermon was given by Pastor Keineth Vaz, acll-g
president ol West Indies College in Jamaica, assisted by P.'slors
C. L. Powers; Marcel Abel and S. F. Monnier of the Franjco Ha4tina
Union. Pastor Eugene Berte from the French West Ind-?s. Pastor
Marcel Perau of French Guiana, and Pastor AA:1luny l Hciry, pres-
ident of the North Haiti Mission. The act of dedication "as read
by Pastor Joses Brutus, president of the South Haiti Mission, and
a solemn prayer was pronounced by Pastor Mathieu Bermingham,
district pastor. All the delegation of pastors who attended the
summer school at the AdvenLtst Seminary in Diquini attended the
service.
This new temple, built on Bolosse Hill. attracts the attention of
the residents of this section of the city, bill more than the glances
it is dedicated to invite the hearts. May it be a place of meeting
for all those who suffer morally or physically and who search for
peace with God. May it be a source of blessing to all who live in
Martissant.
