Rained Out

Wednesday night the 6 p.m.
fight ended in rain. The ring-
siders 'broke the staircase in
their flight for shelter from
the rain. Some fans built in-
genitus little storm-proof shel
ters with ring side chairs,
others spent two hours watch
ing the water rise under the

of seeing Tarzan pin back the

What they saw -

Pg. Strong boy Gerard Fran-
cois, champion of Port au
Prince, take the decision from
Cap Haitien champion Abso-
lius Ambroise in the fourth
rcund when his seconds
threw in the towel. The Cap
'Haitien boy lacked technique
and training but showed
great courage. In" the third
round after running into a
series of straight lefts he re-
ceived a right and a barrage
of follow up blows that had
him wobbling' at the knees.
Saved by the 'bell he gallantly
ignored his second's protest
and wobbled back to nieet
Francois in the fourth. The
second's towel saved him from
ruthless punishment being
served out, by Francois who

has the mistaken idea that a
knockout is the most import-
ant attainment in ,boxing. The
Cap boy should do well with
right training

Mothers' Day Flowers
From Haiti Shipped
As Far As Chicago

Sunday May 10th was Mother's
Day in the United States and
during the week preceding, Cha
telet des Fleurs shipped by air
almost 1500 pounds of flowers,
amounting to three-fourths of a
ton of cut-flowers in one week
alone. The flowers were shipp-
ed as far as Chicago.

On questioning, Mr. Atherton
Lee, the managing director of
Chatelet des Fleurs told us that
an idea of the numbers of-the
flowers may be obtained from
the fact that Carnations, which

are perhaps a represent

weight, average one-third of a
pound per dozen. Thus in the
week of Mother's Day about
4500 units of flowers mpst have
been shipped to foreign coun-

Each unit of perfect, fragrant
flowers carries with it an im-
pression of charm and beauty
and establishes abroad, a plea-
sant conception of Haiti. There
is no better advertising. Howe-
ver the flowers must be perfect
to achieve that impression. With
all entities cooperating, Haiti

e can produce such

y he pleased 'on his beard,
i- or his hear or his hands. And,
i- once, when attacked by three
y mastiffs, he sent forth his
d- bees which so stung the dogs
a- that they fled.



Wasps and bees are too
tiny, you say, even if they did
not stinb. Then try, maybe,
a puma., a chimpanzee, a goat
or even a sheep not such
an uninteresting idea, either,

'Paula. the small as an Ox, 'Great Dane, pet of the Froomans
of the International Club. is used as background by Toscanini
(the new member of Your Reporter's family)i when he posed re-
cently for his first picture. Toscanini has this in common with
Arturo. he is all bark and no bite

is a sheep, for you could give,
it a coat of many colours, as'
the Syrians do: a green muz-
zle, red body, yellow legs, a
blue tail.
Then there are tortoises :
Dumas had a tortoise called
Gazelle which caused terrible
trouble by eating a neigh-
bour's salmon which was hay
ing its last swim in a near-by
tank before being killed for-
dinner. .Or a snake, perhaps,
might appeal to yotu: boa con-
strictors are said to make
fine, pets, especially for wo-
men, who have a away, with
them. But snakes are unsuit
able where there are children,
for they hate sudden move-
ments or loud noises. And
anyway, they sleep a lot.
Maybe a more lively creature
might suit you better.

Something that fights -
tarantulas or scorpions? One
American made a lot of mo-
ney from keeping tarantulas
and staging regular battles.
But for a real insect sports-
man, easy to obtain and sim-
ple to feed, crickets are the
best bet! The Chinese have
brought cricket-fighting to a
fine art, and records of cele-
brated insect fights are kept
just as we keep records of
thoroughbred race horses.
They have heavyweights, mid

dlew;eights and lightweights.
Competitors are matched in a
ring situated in a little pot-
tery jar, and if they shy at
one another or hesitate, the
Army Commander of Director
of the Battle, as the referee is
called, gingers them up with
a tickler made of rabbits'
whiskers. And. the battle
over, the loser is buried in a
tiny metal coffin, the cham-
pion cricket of the season
being awarded the title of
Grand Marshal.


, Frogs are good sportsmen,
too. Mark Twain was a frog-
jumping enthusiast, and he
tells how frog fanciers con-
gregated each year to com-
pete for the 150 dollar prize.
The previous year's champion
frog and its owner were
greeted by brass bands and
speech making. Then the new
competitors lined up and each
frog was given three conse-
cutive jumps to try and beat
the official world record of
14ft 8in. Just in case this
hobby appeals to you, the best
jumpers are Eastern bull-
frogs which are about 5 in.

There are, however,, some
folk who prefer tiny compani-
ons and perhaps the smallest
creature ever to have been
nurtured as a pet, or even to
have provided a sport of
sorts, is the flea! As a sports-
man, the flea really comes
into its own in the circus,
where it costs next no nothing
to keep it feeds on its mas-
ter's arm and can abe
taught to ride a bicycle, dance
a ballet, or drive a miniature

In a.square near the his-

Mlagloire last week kindled'a
symbolic flame of freedom be-

try's great liberator, Tous-

stood at attention. All over

butes on the 150 anniversary
of the death of the slave-born

A towering, tragic figure,
Toussaint looms in history as
incomparably the greatest
Haitian.. From the moTment
he sprang, amidst the French
Revolution, to leadership of'
the/,New World's first success
ful slave rebelliofi, he caught
the imagination of men every
where. He Was then already
past 50, a ripe age for a slave
who had 'been stable boy,
coachman and livestock stew-
ard on A sugar plantation.
His crinkly grey hair covered
with a yellow bandanna, the
new Toussaint ranged across
the rugged island on his char-
ger Bel Argent, wAipped to-
gether an astonishingly tough,
disciplined' Negro army, and
won victories over the French,
the English, the Spanish and
the island's implacable mulat-
to elite. Finally, having by
his vision, astute diplomacy,
and organizing genius paci-
fied all Hispaniola and freed,
500,000 slaves, he restored
the devastated plantitions to
a prosperity rivaling that
which had. made the island
the world's richest colonial
prize before the revolution of
1789. flight in the domain of the
eagles,v he said.
Then, as Toussaint had
ong feared, Napoleon Bona-

brightest jewel in the French
crown; to Napoleon it was
also a potential steppingstone
