Yachts Of Today Not Rhum Runners, Dope Peddlers,
espionage Agents, Smugglers Of Chinamen,
And Must Be Encouraged To Visit Haiti

- .It is simple arithmetic known to the world over that the
big as' well as small yachts from No th America bring'with them
to their ports of call -dollars* aund publicity that circulates back
through magazines to millions of yachting enthusiasts who have
sea fever but only sufficient cash for a plane vqyage. [They
kr. ,make tourists.]
Haiti,. with iti natural harbours, shelter from hurricanes, in-
expensive supplies of fresh fruit and its unspoilt difference, has
4 done little to attract passing yachts. Indeed most yachts, uncer- P-amP a p
tainn. of what they might find in Haiti and somewhat apprehen-
Ssive from stories circulated by others, give Haiti a wide berth.
; certain Officials feel that if Haiti encouraged yacht visitors it
would open up a new source of contraband. This is as riduculous/
Sas the old idea that every foreigner who wore a beard Nwa- a
S:spy. Most yachtsmen belong to reputable clubs, are wealthy and
as a rule rigidly comply.with customs regulations down to an LOOKING'

A first consideration in estimr
eating the value of Mdya ieren's
Divine Horsemen, which deals
with the Voudoun cult and my-
thology, is to keep in mind how
.it came to be written. Miss De-
ren tells us that she went to
.Haiti in September 1947 on a
-Guggenbeim IFellowship for cr-
:ative work in the field of mo-
tion pictures. Her plan was to
produce a film in which the Hai-
tian dance, as a pure dance form.
would figure prominently, but it
was not long before she became
convinced that the dance could
notf be considered independent-
ly of the mythology and the ri-
tual. What evolved then, and

Haitian writers and intellectu-

and studied with various mili- tin America
tary and intelligence groups. H( "
asked whether Dr. Higgins
would like to visit the Citadel, ,
historic fortress of the island
some 200 miles distant from-
Port au Prince. Inasmuch as it
takes two days and -includes a
two-hour trip by. horse to reach
it, and the Haiti visit; was only
three days. Dr. Higginr felt thit "
she would have to decline. Gen-
.eral Levelt. then said that. he
would arrange to have an Arm,

party of seven to the Citadel,

posal of the party, and made it ,
possible to visit the ruins of the "
