tory of the dramatic birth of
the state of Israel. He was in
Tel Aviv during the height of
the Jewish-Arab conflict and
was most thrilled by the news
that the Israel forces had just
captured the ancient biblical
city of Bethsheba. As a ges-
ture of tribute he offered to
conduct a Gershwin and Mo-
zart Concert in the ruins of
the ancient town. And five
thousand eager music lovers
travelled across the desert-to
be present at the event. When
Egyptian intelligence agents
reported this mass movement,
it was mistakenly interpreted
as the prelude to a new Israe-
li offensive in the area and

drew.. That was how the new
Jewish State won a large
stretch of territory without
the loss of a single man. The at

500 Dollars Worth
Of Jewelry Go On Sale
For Charity

We were a little late in get-
ting around to the Ouvroir Na
tional Thursday morning to
look at the Winifred Chenet
exhibit of handwrought jewel
ry put on sale for the benefit
of the Madame Magloire Foun
dation. When we walked in at
noon, there was hardly a hand
ful of items left on display.
Within two hours after the
First Lady opened the exhibit,
the display shelves were
swept bare by eager buyers.
In fact, many of them wanted
to order duplicates of the at-
tractive pieces that were in
the $500 exhibition. It just
goes to show how originality
and taste are appreciated in
costume jewelry design. A-
mong the most popular items,
however, were the copper
hand-hammered bowls turned
out by the petite American's
clever fingers.

This was one case where

a brief case and then locked
the whole thing up in a wood-

down to sleep.
Lunel listened carefully for
the merchant's snores, then
stole the key from his pocket
and was in the act of mak-
ing off with the briefcase
when another passenger spot
ted him and sent up a cry of
abarre voleur.> In the bed-
lam that followed, the young
thief threw the brief case in
a small row boat and tried to
outrun his captors. He lost
the race Ibut all attempts to
find the money proved to be
in vain.
Several passengers noted
that the watchman, Christian
Lamour, seemed to be acting
queerly so police paid a call
at the home of his woman on
the Rue Americaine. They
found two thousand of the
stolen gourdes. The watch-
man, who had been one of the
loudest shouters of Thief, saw where the lad had
dropped the briefcase. Later
he returned and went home
with the swag.

His eyes opened wider and

Suddenly he interrupted

We Live In A Forest Covered

Mountain In Haiti
(The following short 'ti histoires' concerning the lives of
three American children living in the Pine Forest have been set
down by a young Dutchman, Fred Kubbinga, who works and
lives with the family.)

John, the big explorer and
Recent. pupil of our honga,
would like to have a horse.
With much self-sacrifice he
had saved 20 dollars but
.horses are expensive and a
good horse cost at least 40 to
60 dollars. Many.people came
Sto offer their animals but to
John's desperation supply arid
demand.could not agree on
the price.
Weeks passed by and he
had taken up the heavy track
of savingmore money. At last,
however, a man, who really
needed money badly showed
up and said that $20 cash
would do it. John ran into
the house, staggering over the
threshold and chairs, grasped
his money, gave itto the farm-
er as quickly as possible, took
.his horse and led it behind
the house, afraid that the man
would change his mind.
Well, the horse was baptized
,and seemed to be a

home for luncheon,, the chil-
dren were all excited and ran
out to me, yelling that Mert
was having puppies.
I entered the room and all
three were sitting around the
basket in front of the fire-
place, in which they had put
the expecting mother. The
first puppy was born and
everybody waited eagerly for
the other ones, looking whe-
ther Mert was at ease and giv
ing her encouraging nods.
This is so normal, I mean
the kids sitting there, be-
cause they have seen a mare
having her colt and the same
thing for the goats, cows and
even women in the valley.
As soon as a puppy was
born it was destinated to one
of the family till there were
f i v e healthy- girl-puppies
scrambliTig around, searching
for their Mother. All named
after the Canadian quintu-

Schance for number one on a covered a sixth child and a

horse contest."
F '
The second.day of his pro-
prietdrship, however set in
with a big disaster. John, in
pyjamas, Went out in the yard
to see how Beauty was mak-
ing out aid saw to his terror
that he was gone. He ran back
ith tears like a tropical rain-
kill, put on his clothes and,
rushed off : without a word.
After a few. hours-he came
back, tired and hungry, pull-
ing a.reluctant horse behind
him, which he had found back,
having a 6hat with his first
girl-friend in our valley.
Everybody relieved, the house
hold carried on under nor-
imal blood pressure.
But Beauty is a type and
accustomed himself to the fam
ily like a child. He keeps both
eyes open and has a clear and
firm mind, because in the dry
season, with no water outside,.
he pushes the backdoor open,
gets into the kitchen and finds
his way to the ,waterdrums.
Do you still think, that noth-
Ag is happening up there?

As I told you already, Mert
is our dog and one day I came

boy this time. Finally a name
for tire boy was found al-
though none of the children
was too enthusiastic. He had
spoiled the game.
Anyhow, they were there,
the new members of pur fam-
ily and enjoyed-the.same care
and nursery as a whole zoo,
goats and chicken included.
A few days later Mother and
Daddy went down to town
and so the children helped
clean the house, doing the
cooking, setting and clearing
the table.

Every night, returning
from our work, they had a
surprise for me, candy, a big
cake.or a new game to play.
But all of a sudden, an epi-
demic disease struck the
puppy-basket. Something was
wrong with Mert's milk and
every night a puppy died.
Desperately, the children tried
to cure the Mother and con-
sulted the servants. There
was nothing to do about it
and a week-long we had a sad
funeral, early in the morning,
all of us shivering in the cold
air, with faces that expressed
the little tragedies that can
change everything completely.

And there they lie in our
yard, six little puppies, just
under the tree in which our
chicken sleep in order to keep
themselves from being eaten
by a cat or a mongoose.
Celesti is the man with
two houses, one to live in and
the other one 'especially for
the Saturday. evening bam-
We have a standing invita-
tion and, if we don't feel like
going, all our neighbours
come to find us and only a
very good argument can help
for a refusal.

Arriving at
the orchestra (three drums, a
,banjo and a wooden box with
4 holes and steel plates over
them, that works like a bass)
stand up and play the Haitian
national anthem. This is
namely the sign that the even
ing has been officially open-
ed, but in the second place a
suggestion to me that a round
of 10-cop (1 cent U.S.) clairin
would be very welcome. And
no words are clearer expres-
sion of the wishes, because; if
I hesitate, the anthem in re-
peated. (cNo opening without

After this it starts and
when I say cit, is real-
ly something. Even cold nor-
thern blood gets warm under
this' strong rhythm, that ex-
pr6sses the heartbeat of these

simple, open and hospitable
men and women.
And the children, you
should see them dance with
the same natural feeling, to-
gether and the two bigger
ones also with the other peo-
ple who handle them like por
celain, but are always asked.

to do more difficult passes.

bamboches, because he sells
cigarettes, kolas, clairin, etc.,
although it is no exception
that somebody brings his own
liquor-cellar in the backapoc-
ket of his trousers. And be
sides, a big part of Celesti's
profit disappears in the
throats of our children.

After a while the speed is
increased and all of a sudden
one of the men gives a solo in
front of the fire or Celesti
dances the conga with his fa-

Emee's head starts to fall
to one side and she is talking
on the installment system.
This is the sign to go home.
With Emee on my shoulders,
the two others reluctantly
slugging behind and a few
clairins in my stomack, the
road home is long.
We enjoy this' life and. I
think it is fun to be called a
nickname by that small so-
ciety high in the mountains,
for which we are no foreign-
ers but friends.

Throughout Haiti this week,

cient Holy Week ceremonial
which they have coloured and
absorbed into their own folk-
lore. In effigy, Judas. yill come to visit the
peasants as one of the twelve
apostles and an honoured

death of Christ is announced

A marked physical improve-
ment is very apparent at Fonds
Parisien. Many houses have
been rebuilt and many new ones
constructed. Thatched roofs have
been replaced in a good many
instances by galvanized iron
roofs, and in general a definite
effort has been made to make
all dwellings more comfortable.
In place of the mud and wattle
construction previous to the "ar-
rival of irrigation; some houses
are now built of masonry.
The main activity at Fonds,
Parisien used to be the manu-
facture of charcoal and its ex-
port to Port-au-Prince. Although
this continues to a minor de-
gree in' the mountainous areas
surrounding the village, much
of the charcoal now transport-
ed to Port au Prince is brought
over in sailboats from Tbali
zeau across Etang SaumAtre.
The former brush land that furn
ished the raw material for char-
coal is now in rice, corn, beans
and vegetable production.

storekeeper, Edmond D&ricin

grows beans and plantains and
breeds and raises livestock. Of
his 9 children five attend the

The Head of the Rural Police
in the area states *Thanks to
God, our situation has improv-

the reason for the increased
number of animals he-cites the
fact that the people have more
cash on hand and are unable to
buy land, and therefore buy ani-
mals instead. Moreover, the
drainage of the swampy regions
which was part of the work per-
formed by SCIPA encourages
animal breeding in the area. In
the past animals kept in the
swamps developed foot rot and
The main diversion of the poo-
pie of Fonds Parisien is the Sat-

every week.
Each Friday is the local mar-
ket day. People from the sur-
rounding countryside bring their
produce for sale and spend the
day in friendly haggling over pri-
ces for their articles. In addi-
tion there are 7 plantain pur-

new variety of chicken corn has
been introduced and developed
by SCIPA. This variety is call-
ed Egyptian Shallu and matures
in three months with twice the
yield in comparison with the
six month period required by the
native variety. This enables the
farmers at Fonds Parisien to
grow two crops with double the
harvest in each where only one
crop grew before. The sources of
revenue classified in order of im
portance are :

Fonds Parisien is now a veri-

thy happy people, their well-
fed children playing along the
irrigation canals and splashing
in the water in the shade of ban-
ana and mango trees. In four
years' time a discouraged seg-
ment of the Haitian population
through help from the Techni-
cal Cooperation Programme has
changed attitude to one of hope-
ful expectation of a better way
of living in the future. SCIPA
has demonstrated at Fonds Pa4

Chatelet des Fleurs,
April 7, 1953.

Dear Bernard :

Charming Chatelet des
Fleurs (excuse the plug, but
we earned it) in cool Kenscoff,
with the active cooperation of
Colonel Edward Roy, Com-
mandant of the Haitian Air
Force, -released some subli-
mated -silver iodide on our
grounds last Sunday evening
about 6.30 p.m.

Later in the evening we
ceived a brisk rain total9
3 1/2 millimeters, We ia
acquainted with the consid
able distribution of th
throughout the area at?|
same time.

The occurrence of the ra
coincidental with the rele
of our silver iodide may ha
been due to chance, but di
to the bisk nature of the raj
which was not at all compa
able to the drizzles fromcoli
fronts here, nor the vio]emi
from cumulus-cloud precipit
tion, we think that the silvo
iodide, which has tremendot
capacity for wide dispersio1
may have been the cause. Ti
drought conditions previqo
to the rain and subsequent]
are also supporting factors.

We wish to express appr!
ciation to Pan America
World Airways, also, who Pc
operated in getting the silvE
iodide from .New York to ~
here so expeditiously.
