Two Amateur Alpinists Recount
Trip Through Haiti's Himalayas
The sport of hiking is almost
unknown to Haitians though
many hike great distances
through necessity. Father Gous-
se, who teacher mathematics
year long at the Petit Semiraire
St. Martial, exchanges his white
cassock each vacation time for
khaki shorts, open shirt and hik-
ing boots. There are few peaks
.amongst Haiti's rugged moun-
tains that have not at one time
welcomed the arrival of the 6 ft.
4 in. Jacmelibn priest.
Last Tuesday Pere Gousse
set off from Furcy on a 85-kilo-
* meter hike with sun-tanned Pro-
fessor Street of the University of
California as co-hiker. Mr. Street,
professor of economic geogra-
phy, is visiting Haiti for the sec-
ond time studying the agricul-
tural geography of the country.
He expects to write ,a doctor's
dissertation on the subject. Leav-
Sing Furcy at 6 a.m. they tramp-
ed 16 kms by the pedometer
which Pbre Gousse wears on
his right ankle to the Plateau De
La Marque where they made
their base for hikes to the neigh-
bouring mountains. After feast-
ing on a small goat purchased
for $1.50 and a good night's sleep
at the chapel in the cool heights
of La Marque they tramped off
10 kilometers to Morne l'Enfer
where they were rewarded with
a magnificent view of Marigot
and the coast line of the south-

que and visited the very tip of
La Selle range where they found
beautiful limestone cliffs and
waited two hours for the fog to

Friday they bid farewell to
-Ca Marque and went to Berly
.near Morne Malanga. There they
spent the night. En route they
passed over a dozen waterfalls, 1
S over 300 feet high. At Berly
they had a fine view of the Gos-
seline valley and after prepar-
ing breakfast .patate au lait
they journeyed the 10 kilome-
ters to Chauffard. The going
was hot and rugged but refresh-
ing when crossing the Momance
river six times and the Chauf-
.fard river which they still mar-
vel at its coolness and its rapid
Finally arriving at Chauffard
Saturday evening they saw a
beautifully built church and
school and a new dispensary
made all of stone. The new dis-
pcnsary which is replacing an
old wooden one is being built
by the entire community. Each
time a person comes in to Chauf-
fard he or she carries along a
stone which goes into the con-
struction of the dispensary.
Pere Gousse said Mass Sunday
morning and they continued
their last leg of the trip to Car-
refour Laboule. Five kilometers
short of the Carrefour Professor
Street's legs gave out and he
rode a horse bareback through
the vast maize plantations past
the white erosion-scarred moun-
tains to arrive on the highway
as Archbishop Le Gouaze hap-
pened to pass. The startled Arch-
bishop stopped and invited them
to ride to the city with him but
they declined on account of their

Twenty-six delegates from Hai.
ti joined more than 125,000 oth-
ers at Yankee Stadium in New
York City for aThe New World
Society Assembly of Jehovah's
witnesses. which turned out. to
be the greatest religious assem-
bly ever held in America. One
of the Haitian delegates was dip-
ped along with 4,600.people who
were baptized there, and three
local representatives gave re-
ports in English and French of
the missionary work done in
Haiti. More than ninety lands
were depicted on giant banners
in Yankee Stadium, including
one marked, ,Warmest regards
from sunny Haiti..
Special arrangements were
made so that a C--46 from the
Conner airlines could land in
Port-au-Prince at Bowen's Field
to service some of the local dele-
gates with transportation at a
reasonable cost to each. In New
York City, 15,(00 volunteers
found rooms for a0,000; served
food in their own cafeteria that
aniazed.-'-Ubli6' officials; built a
tent and trailer city whose po-
pulation grew from nothing to
43,453. The attendance on the
last of the-'eght days of the as-
sembly totaled -165,S29. The Hai-
tian delegates returned Wednes-
day, tired and happy, rand they
will soon try to sponsor the
same feat on a smaller scale'here
in the capital.
Talks at the convention were
given in twenty languages, and
73 new publications were releas-
ed including a French book that
will be in Haiti very shortly. All
were grateful for the co-opera-
tion of local officials.

This is the final installment
of an article cn how the Centre
d'Art and St. Trinity MAhrals
Same into being. The article
Written by Joe Alex Morris, ap-
p' eared in *The Saturday Even-
In the ten years he has been
there now, Bishop Voegeli has
increased the Episedcil church
membership by 50 per cent to
More than 45,000; But he was
-,still far from certain of success
:' in 1949 when fie received from
'the government a suggestion
that t.e- chtiircli night make
i: some contributibn to the 1949-50
Internqtinat Exp'slion at Port
~ au Prince,. designed to attract
World attention' to Haiti. His
First reaction Ws that the 75,000
L dollars anhual.budget for his mis
,sionary district couldn't provide
.for any such .l ury: He was
b:about to forget.the whole thing
.-when he remembered the letter
: that Peters had written him two
'years earlier regarding murals
Sfor the cathedral.
A What', he asked himself, are
': we waiting for?' We can .raise
iPS 'ENM AL
the money privately for the mu-
rals, and they will be our contri-
bution to the exposition.,
It wasn't quite that easy. Pet-
ers Was enthusiastic. So was
Selden Rodman, a New York edi-
tor and writer who had become
interested in the Centre d'Art
and who did an impressive job
of publicizing the Haitian paint-
ers in America and elsewhere.
Both Peters and Rodman knew
there were many difficulties.
Just for example, the roof of the
cathedral leaked; a new roof
would be necessary or the first
heavy rain would rdin the mur-
als. Moreover, the walls would
have to be scraped abd a special
plaster put on for the painters.
The artists themselves would
have to learn an entirely new
technique of painting.
It is unlikely that there are
mote than a handful of church
officials in the world who would
have had the courage to tackle

Voegeli was one of the handful
