S The President of the Repub-
lic, interviewed on his return
Wednesday night, declared him-
self very impressed with the
-progress of construction works
at Gonaives and at Cap Haitien.
'I have indeed congratulated
for their excellent work the en-.
gineer Vorbe's arid the architect
Jeanton, who are responsible for
the Gonaives project. Asked
about his impressions of Cap
Haitien, the President replied :
*The works at the Cap are so
impressive that it's necessary to
view them with one's eyes. You
really cannot have an exact idea

ing certain of our more urgent
problems, such as illiteracy,

Thoroughly satisfied with the
work of the contractors, the
President announced that his
government hopes to entrust to
Coinmar and to G. T. M., the
construction of the network

Ambassador To Haiti
Continued from Page 1
Davis has travelled extensive-
ly in South and Central America
for the last 30 years. During
conversations with several of the
envoys at today's ceremony, he
recalled incidents of his early
life while in their countries.
President Eisenhower's com-
mission of appointment was pre
sented to Davis by Cabot.
Dean Henry Grattan Doyle, of
George Washington University,
spoke of Davis' long service with
the American Council of Edu-
cation. Davis has been director
of the inter-Afierican Schools
Service of' the Council since
1943. In that capacity he has
travelled extensively throughout
Central America and is widely
known there, Dr. Doyle recalled.

Letter From The Publisher
Few countries in the world have as much to offer the visitor
as Haiti. There are so nmay wonderful tourist attractions pccu-
liar to this exceptional Republic. The vaunted Blarney Stone of
Ireland has nothing oa the Citadelle Heari Christophe.
We often do not sufficiently exploit our own resources.
SWhat is worse, however, is that too many visitors are being al-
Fowed to take away wrong impressions of our country.
A single instance will illustrate our contention. For Haitians
and visitors the Troupe Folklorlque Nationale offer, twice week-
ly, a magnificent presentation of Haitian. dances. Thrilling, au-
thentic, varied, tliL dances stern from a history and from a folk-
lore unparallelled anywhere and they are presented with a rare
combination of spontaneity and of art, by native performers, in
whose blood the fire of the dance runs wild.
But tourists are told by certain travel-brochures that the
Theatre de Verdure [which itself is a beautiful conception] of-
fers only a watered-down version of Voodoo. In the hills on
Saturday tights, or in the atonrielles., the posters hint you can
see the real thing...
So, led by unscrupulous guides they are taken into the ua.
,derworld to witness a tourist voodoo put on, not seldom, by
charlatans. A goat or chicken [bought a little earlier with some
guRible's money] is slain, the blood drunk," to the disgust of
most visitors, and a dance inspired not by a loa but by alcoholic
spirits is .put on.,
The tourist returns to his homeland muttering dark things
about the Black Republic. Is it good publicity for our country
when a U.S. doctor, who spent a weekend here. tells all his
clients the year round, 'Yes, I spent a part of my vacations in
H1iti, but, my God, what revolt,]n things they still do down
