Montezuma Eats 10 Beefsteaks With

Many people must have in-
quired about why food is some
what scarce in town these
days. Your Reporter, who, as
everybody, has a mouth with
a belly following it, was eager
-ly working on an inquiry
with a view to discovering
the cause when he came face

lem Tuesday noon. (Some of
our readers may have thought
that the shortage of food in
our capital has been caused by
soil unproductiveness or such.

Our warm congratulations
go to the Director of SCISP,
Mr. James D. Caldwell, who
has shown so much interest
in the welfare of Mirebalais,
.and also of his zealous colla-
borators : Dr. Russell I. 1

enza, Engineer Eugene Limou

say here, almost left ethe I
soles of their shoqs here.* We
wish also to thank and'congra .
tulate you, Engineer Carrie, s
project engineer of the Cen-
ter his second construction ,
and a real success; and at last, r
but not the least, the Chevry
heirs who, at a time when lots I
are .so rare in Mirebalais, s
have so willingly and with an p
admirable self-denial facilita- c
ted the purchase of one for n
the health center.
SBefore closing, I would not
consider my mission well ac-
complished without pointing
out the necessity of placing
at the health center a few
beds for an embryo or a semi-
private maternity ward.
There is enough room for
that, and in doing so, the De-
partment of Public Health
would 'fill a long felt need.
which comes next in import-
ance only to our need for a
water supply system.
As for the medical aid and
the equipment of the old dis-
pensary, Boucan Carre, a sec.
tion of 15,000 habitants and
24 km distant from Mireba-
lais, from which it is separat-
ed by the Artibonite river, is
longing for them.
Deputy of Mirebalais. Mr.
MIarcel Renaud., emphasized
in his address that hence-
forth the populous would find
relief of their suffering right
in their town, putting an end
to the long and tiring jour-
neys to other towns to find
the medical care whicli was
lacking in the home town.

The building, a long single
storey cement.and wood con-
struction, is entirely opin to
provide maximum ventilation,
with a long gallery running
its full length to serve as a
waiting area for patients un-
der all weather conditions. It
is surrounded by an extensive
yard which will enable the
carrying out of a varied pro
gramme of health education.
The complete installation of
sanitary facilities demon-
strates the advantages of hav
ing potable water and an
adequate drainage system.
The health center was erect-

ed by the Engineering Divi- rial t
sion of SCISP. The project best d

Similarities in Daily Life

F,.d surprise on arrival

"Tlhis was discovered by Dr.
Gideon Lincecum, an Ameri-
can physician. Reporting his
observations in a letter to
Charles Darwin, he wrote :
x clears the ground of all ob-
stacles, levels and smoothes
the surface to the distance of
three or four feet from the
gate of the city, giving the
space the appearance of a
handsome pavement. Within
this paved area no green
thing is allowed to grow, ex-
cept a single species of grain-
bearing grass. Having plant-
ed this crop in a circle
around the centre of the
mound, the insect tends and
cultivates it with constant
care, watches it ripen, then
harvests the corn. After the
harvest, all the chaff is tak-
en out and thrown beyond the
limits of the yard area.

than any other tractor you

'iWr produced has better
to!que characteristic (lugging
7iPter). It will pull you
!rough the toughest soil
: without slowing or stalling.
IKlt will keep on going where
their tractors quit.

Come fn and ask for a demonstration


It is quite.likely that ants
have provided other examples
which the human race is un-
wittingly following, for the
sameness of the organisation
of the two societies is aston-
ishing. Nothing like the same
parallel can be draw with
human and any other species
of animals or insects. The
domestic life of ants Is very
similar to our own. Their
young are reared in specially
constructed nurseries and in
fine weather are taken into
the open for an airing. Sensi-
tive to changes in the atmos-
phere, if the nurse ants feel
rain is approaching they rush
their small charges back to
the nests.

Ants also have doctors, who
will often isolate a patient
suffering from disease. Their
medical crmen can also ampu
tate injured legs and, in cases
of hopeless illness, ends the
patient's suffering by ensur-
ing a swift death.
Like ourselves, ants bury
their dead and even have ce-
remonial funerals; bearers
carry the dead ant to its grave
and others c.oer it up.

A Mrs. Lewis, of Sydney,
Australia, has described what
happened after she had killed
a number of soldier ants who
attacked her baby. T w o
ants carried an ant corpse,
followed by two others appar-
ent.ly acting as mourners.
Other couples followed every
other pair carrying a dead
ant. About 900 ants brought
up the rear and when the pro-
cession reached a tiny hillock,
a.out half the followers dug
he es. The dead ants were
laid inside, and the followers,
who ull to then had been idle
covered them up.


Some South American ants
sow seeds-not in the ground,
but in specially built hanging
gardens. These structures
are made by carrying soil in-
to trees and pressing it toge
their to form a ball. The U Um-
brella, or leaf-carrying ant
of the American tropics,
walks a distance each day,
which, if they were the same
size as ourselves, would be
the equivalent of 3,000 miles.
They also carry a weight
which, for us, would mean
300 lbs and they take about

Page 5

three" hours sleep daily. This,
and the building capacity of
ants, gives us some idea of
what we could accomplish if
we had similar powers.

The pyramids of Egyut,
long listed as one of the
Seven Wonders of the
World,, are an impressive
monument to man's industry.
Yet, if we built houses in tihe
same proportion-to our height
as ant-heaps are to the height
of ants, they would be 84
time as tall as trIe tallest of
tifhe Bi3pan jyanmids, whidh

Nearly 2000 years ago
Pliny, the famous naturaMlst,
stated that ants have month.

work and do not stir out of

their nests. He further as-
serted that they also observe
marketing days. Scientists
of later days have gone even
further and have maintained
that although thousands of
ants reside in a singlt' nest
they'know each other.atAdithat
if an intruder arrives onj the
scene he is instant killed.
According to the scientist
Huber, they even hae Sftrts

men are the only Bt e on
earth that wage deliberate

ant can teach man much; but
it can afford him no example
of the art of living without
periodical resort to war. So
man can still prove himself
superior in one particular.
And it will be a great blessing
to his own kingdom, if he does
so without much more delay.

Last night, for the first
time in twenty-five years, he
came to see me. I was sitting
quietly at my desk reading a
story in cTrue Confessions*
about a beautgul young girl
who fell in love with, and was
betrayed by a man old enough
to be her father. As I was won
during why there are no beau
tiful young girls like that in
Haiti, at least, as far as I
know, I heard Gentil's Cadil-

I felt singularly alone. To
whom could I appeal for help?
My mind raced. Edith Efron?
No! She is in Paris. Lorraine
Dora? She is in Porto Rico.
Susie? No! She is in Cap

Only Heaven could help me.
Gentil opened the door of
his car and stepped onto my
,porch. Little did I dream
then, as he advanced towards
me, that his visit to my hum-
ble home would change the
course of empires and usher
a new era into this sad and
sorely tried world.

As -he entered my poorly
furnished living room, Gentil
lanced around at the shabby
hairs, the worn carpet, the
feeling paint.on the walls and
he few cheap pictures which
iag upon them. What a

Gentil was right. If he really.
needed such a man as he des-
eribed, I was his only pos-
sible choice. .But I still did-
n't see how the sacrifice of
my life would benefit human-
ity. I told him so.
He laughed. cThere is no
question of sacrificing your
life, Tommy>, he said. Then
a shadow seemed to fall on
his face, and his eyes were sad
as he continued, iOf course,

Tommys, he said, something of my plans for
my future, and for the future
of humanity. I selected you as
my collaborator, because I
needed a man of extraordin-

and vast erudition. You are

Essential requirements for

with the dominant mind is one
who temnil:eramentally and hab
itually dislikes being overtak

There are sach drivers. One
of them may have no reason
for hastening his journey, but
he seems to dislike being over
taken and- is apart to view the
sight or sound of an overtak-
ing car as a.challenge. He will
immediately Ipull ont to the

Your Reporter managed to
ply several statements from
the 68-year-old doctor. He said
he enjoyed his stay here so
much that he would return at
the slightest suggestion. What
struck him most during his 8
months here was the friend-
liness of the people, the tre-
mendous accident hazard and
the lack of accident preven-
tion work. He believes Idash
can be a very successful en-
terprise and that he is happy
with the thought that he has
had a chance to help the Hai-
tian community.,
