,We deny that useful work in the training of skilled men

at wue want to urge in addition to other measures, is the
bi of a good system of apprenticeship in as ,iang of the

E such a system a great many of ithe ioths cadgmi ,iriniacd
Jd jobs could be offered a stable e aployment while under-
'a thorough training in a trade. Older croa tssfr e, : il be

COMMUNIQUE
The Committee of the Haiti
Football Federation reminds all
football clubs that it is the Gen-
eral Plenary Assembly which
has elected the present directors,
and for a period of three years.
The attitude of the clubs Rac-
.ing Club Haitien, Bacardi, Vic-
tory, Excelsior, Aigle Noir, claim
ing to substitute themselves for
the General Assembly, [which is
alone empowered to modify sta-
tutes and rules and to elect
correctly members of the Or-
ganisation], can only sow disor-
der and anarchy in the organisa-
tion, and perhaps destroy its
very existence.
The Committee takes this op-
portunity to remind the clubs of
,Article 29 of the general rules
of the Club. Article 29 reads :
All groupings of clubs affiliated
to the Federation taking deci-
sions contrary to the sportive
unity of the Haitian Football
Federation, the essential condi-
tion of affiliation to the Federa-
tion, and contrary-to the general
rules will Incur a penalty.

point of sacrifice., says Daniel.
Others helped their education.
Daniel went through secondary
school, had begun to attend law
school, returned to the Lycee Pe-
tion to teach his favourite sub-
ject, mathematics. When he lost
that job in 1942 for dabbling in
politics, he was quite unshak-
en. A month later he married,
soon founded the party called
the Worker Peasant Move-
ment. He took an active part
in the revolution 'of 1916 which
replaced the Lescot regime. For
75 days he was Minister ot Edu-
cation. Two secondary schools
- one the Lycee Toussaint Lou-
verture in town, were sot up in
that period, before he broke
with Estim6. Back in the poli-
tical wilderness', h'e actively in-
terested himself in trade union-
ism. He organised, among others,
the union at Hasco which de-
manded and got a daily wage in-
crease from 1 gourde 50 to 5
gourdes. In 1950, he was elect-
ed Deputy for Port au Prince,
Petonville, and Ken.coff, a
constituency of over 200,000
voters, and no as tribune of the
people, has a powerful follow-

that the Haitian government had
granted a licence in good faith,

Haiti's .Black Gold --

Rich Crop Coming


This month the Minister Pre-
'al went on a mission to Marme-
Lide. The visit of the Secretary
of State for Agriculture to this
peasant farming area of the
North had chiefly a propaganda
purpose' to focus public atten-
tion on the importance of coffee
to Haiti's economy, to herald
Sthe bumper crop expected this
year, to demonstrate the success
of the first year of the govern-
-,. ment's five year plan to develop
agriculture.

Public attention was drawn
more forcibly to coffee last year
when a failure in production re-
vealed how vitally important is
this one crop to Haiti's economy
and how uncertain is the source
from which 65 per cent of the
.nation's income is drawn. Taxes
': on the product of the.peasants
and small farmers who reap the
black berries in little holdings
all over the country are the main
source of government revenue.
Value of tle coffee exported in
1951-52 was 32,700,682 dollars,
though after systematic taxation


TOPS 'EM ALL


the original producer got a small
part of this amount. When a
bad harvest diminished revenue
last year the present gove-n-
ment came near to its most se-
rious crisis since 1950. One of-
its first measures was the dras-
tic reorganisation of agriculture
extension services; another %%as
the implementing of plans to
plant 10 million trees in 5 years.
Such steps would benefit Hai-
ti immensely, if they went fur-
ther. For many difficulties near
to be surmounted if Haiti is'to
increase or even maintain its co.-
fee production. Prevailing con-
ditions hamper as well as favour
coffee cultivation.

Heavy seasonal rain fall on
the steep mountain slopes cause
severe erosion, washing the best
soil down the hillside. The best
coffee grows on young wood, so
that only the second -and third
year is there an optimum pro-
duction. Careless .planting al-
lows trees to grow unpruned;
bushes become too thick or too
tall and berries fall on the
ground. Coffee must grow un-
der the shade (except over four
thousand feet] and improvident
deforestation has iruineid manr
suitable areas. Finally the
price of Haiti's coffee is help-
lessly subject to world economic
cycles [controlled in Brazil or in
the'New York purchasing mar-
ket], and when the cycle adver-
sely coincides with the bottom
of the Republic's own production
cycle, disaster' could threaten
the country.

exposed, deforested mountain

Haiti cannot afford this los..
Coffee and other crops will con-
tinue to bring increasing wealth
to the country ilihe and ij pre-
sent programmes of soil conser-
vation, composting, an.l afforez-
tation are carried out in full
measure and enlarged.

It was this greater prosper-
ity to pays and 'paysan. that
that the Minister wisely stress-
ed when he talked to coffee
farmers in his home town :,t
Marmelade in the department of
the North. For the fate of cof-
fee seems always to bear a
close parallel with the econo-
mic condition of the country. In
1739 the Jesuits introduced cof-
fee here from North Africa,
planting it first at Plaisance, a
few miles from Marmelade. In
1791 the Golden Sunset of St.
Domingue's prosperity, coffee
production on 800 estates totalled
65.151,180 Ibs., a figure not
equalled for over one hundred
years. After the Independence
when sugar production declined
coffee production remained large
enough to provide the State with
considerable income. By 1839
he figure had reached -3,851,666
bs. In 1935-36 a century late,
he Vincent government report-


ed the export of 79,400,000 Ibs of W
coffee compared with 76,600,000
lbs of sugar. The war, shipping
difficulties and loss of the Euro-
pean market, hit Haiti's coffee
hard, as did dollar area complexi-
ties subsequently. Haiti w-as
able to sell 11,162,390 dollars
worth of coffee to Belgium in
1951-52, and 15,024,331 dollars to
the U. S. Big news now is not
only that thi coffee crop will be
good: It is the promise that the
coffee price will be excellent.
Brazil which produces just half
the world's supply did not over- ee scen
treetproduce this year. Rather a scene
produce this year. Rather a


frost which nipped this year's
coffee buds has considerably re-
duced world potential supply.
After sparing a little sym-
pathy for their Brazilian coun-
terparts, the Haitian peasants,
the Haitian government, the
Haitian people in general have
the feeling that they are begin-
ning to ride on a boom, as the
price of their Black Gold begins
to rise on the world market.

As Haiti's only blond Negro,
Dauphin became a celebrity.
Newspapers wondered editorial-
ly to which race he now belong-
ed. That alarmed President
Stenio Vincent. If Dauphin
started a trend, he suggested, it
would be a sad blow to Haitian
pride, "and our legitimate ambi-
tion to walk one day at the head
of a great Negro civilization
would become without object."
Others may have tried the ex-
periment, but no one else
changed colour. Dauphin re-
mained a medical rarity, let a
promoted hustle him to the U. S.
where he appeared in third-rate
New York theaters. The two-
month trip netted him less than
$50. When he returned to his

get back to the simple native
fare of corn meal, congo peas,
yams and mangoes. And when
he tried to cultivate his small
field, he got such painful sun-
burns that he had to let his wife
till the ground thereafter, while
he wove straw hats.
The dermatologist who ex-
amined him two weeks ago could
shed little more light than ear-
lier experts on how or \why Dau-
phin had turned white. The case
was unique; something connect-
ed v. ith the toxic effect of the
voodoo medicine on Dauphin had
paralyzed the skin's process of
replacing its pigment cells. Now,
after 20 years, some small aieas
of the skin seemed to be regain-
ing that function. Dauphin
thought that the black spots on
his arms and legs might well
mean that he was returning, be-
fore the day of his death, to the
colour of his birth. In any case,
he was not worried about it ;
he merely shrugged and said :
-One is not one's own master.'

the existence of Marbial embar-
rass him at this point? One
would-say that he has not got a
tranquil conscience. He gives
the impression of someone who
has committed an evil crime,
and is in a hurry to hide the
body. But when you have been,
like ourselves, concerned with
affairs of International Organi-
sations during the period of
"46-'49, you can easily under-
stand the reason for this haste,
and this condemnation without
mercy. It suits some people to
pass themselves off as pioneers
of technical assistarlce in Haiti.
Consequently they wish it to be
forgotten that Marbial had been
conceived and created more
than a year before the coming
to Haiti of the Rosenborg mis-
sion.
As regards the allusion to
Creole and to the method -of our
compatriot Faublas, he would
wish to make us forget the im-
portant works accomplished dur
ing the period 1943 1946 by
Mr. McConnell, Laubach and the
Committee for the Diffusion of
Teaching in Creole, of which I
was president. He is trying to
mislead public opinion in mak-
ing it believe that the pompous-
ly called -method of our compa-
triot Faublas* is not just a slight
rectification of the phonetic or-
thography and of the method of
teaching recommended by Mc-
Connell and Laubach.
