A Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year to All from the HAITI SUN


- Personality Of The Week

Tiny Tim, the pathetic little
cripple of Charles Dickens' rn-
memorial talq, has become the
symbol for the need of a true
Christmas Spirit throughout the.-
English speaking world. But-
.here in Haiti we have no nc.d
to conjure up Tiny Tim's blithe
spirit to point up the moral,
cIt's more blessed to give than
*to receive;* We have only to
take our readers like the
Christmas Angel took Scrooge
to a small yellow cottage near
the Place Boyer in Petionv'lle
to the crowded little orphan-
. age operated by Miss Doris
dSixty two homeless waifs are
cranmm6d into the low. poorly-
constructed, five room house.
They range from a set of twins
only several months old to 18-
year-old- Hermande Toussaint,
who is engaged to be mnarried
and .will soon be .leaving the
'fold. '

As you enter the bare little
courtyard, you will be gret?td.
by the tall dark Jamaican w>
man whose heart is big enough
to have a warm maternal spot
in it for each one of her numer-
'ous charges. But sadly, she
doesn't have a pocketbook io.
maitb. Poverty ,9f body how-
ever does nbt mean poverty
of soul at the Burke menage.
"The orphans line up quickly and
in piping cheerful voices sing
your greetinF, ,Welcome .to Sun
shine Hompe.

Then there will be the round
of introductions a tiny par-i-
lytir will smile beguilingly at

you as you pass-her petite hair.
A chubby one,,ear-old will try
to unlace your shoes as you
stand chattering with Miss
Burke. The little boy in her
arms is called Rootevelt in hon-
our of the Ibo Lele manager
who has done many kind things
for the protestant orphanage.

The child tzas six months old,
or thereabouts'when a car drove
up to the orphanage and depo-
sited him in the arms of an
eager inmate telling her
*Here is a present for Miss
Burke., The cadeau was warm-
ly accepted, as all'the children
are. But -soon after his arri-
val little Roosevelt took ill with
a chronic form of atrophy. One
day when Miss Burke was tak-
ing him to the hospital,' she met
two American- Cameramen, Max
Clenn and Ben amin Doni ar,
who were filming picturesque
Petionville. They were so touch-
ed by the sick child that Mr.
Glenn paid his medical bill and
asked to send- whatever medi-
cine he needed from the States.

That is, ove of the reasons
why Miss Burke still puts her
faith in humanity. Time and
again kind persons have come
to her rescue when their he'p
was critically needed. You will
be shown the 36 dolls and 72
pairs of shoes American tourist
Barnett Shaw sent from New
York last'summer after he met
orphan Marie Rose on the street
and, intrigued by her British ac-
cent and meticulous English,
paid a call on the Burke estab-
lishment. The shoes were put

Miss Burke is seen holding Roosevelt, named in honour of thi
Ibo Lele manager who has helped the little orphans. Roosecel
was left in the arms of the children one evening by a strange
who said the little six-month old child uwas a .cadeanu for Mis
Bur Ore. -tw

Into immediate use, solving a
vital clothing problem for the
boys and girls of school age. But
the dolls are still in .cellophane
waiting for Pere Noel.
Miss Burke is mighty glad
they are there because Christ-
'mas is likely to be slim this
year. ,She recalled with deep
gratitude the big turkey dinners
with all the fixings that us.?d
to be sent over to the orphanage
from Mrs. Pat Wiederman when
she, had the Hotel Aux Orchi-
dees. There was always a bas-
ketful of 'toys from Patricia to

There are a number of.rea
sons why Miss Burke is draw-
ing 'upon all 'her extra courage
to face the Holidays. For one
thing, she was forded to move-
to her present damp and crowd-
ed quarters when the landlord
demanded a rent raise far be-
yond her means. Even her pt'e-
sent 30 dollars a month rent is
hard to find. The last month
was paid by a Port au Prince
merchant, Mr. Esteve. The !st
of December the electricity "vas.
cut off because of an unpayable
12 dollar light bill. And a loom-
ing 100 dollar grocery bill is
even i bigger worry. Yet, the
year was not without its won-
derful surprises.

One day a group of visiting
Americans came to Miss Burke
and handed her an envelope
with 500 dollars to do with as
she saw fit. It was the down
payment on her longtime dream
of establishing a clean healthy
home for her little orphans in
e the country. She immnediately
r purchased a plot of land at Bris-
s tau with the money but has not

had the extra 12 dollars needed
to pay -the notary, fee for the
legal deed for her property.
Ii is one of the many matters
which she is putting in the
hands of God. I

The kindly Jamaican womin,
q school teacher by profession,
has spent her life mothering the
mor,herless young. Miss Burke
and her .own motherifirst came
to Haiti in 1924 to open an Eng-
lish School in the Capital iun-
der the invitation, of President
Sorno. She brought with her
five adopted children who were
models of deportment and all
accomplished pianists. Local
people were so impressed by
Miss Burke's achievements as a
foster mother that soon she
was asked to take care of chil-
dren of a number of respectable
but' poverty stricken Haitian
families. Before lone her hou-'e

Confessions Of A Nervous

Motorist In Haiti

iAn honest "New York cop would write out 5,000 tickets a
day in Pot-au-Prince.,
*A Yewo Jersey cop would double that in three lours..--
Quoted verbatum from the imout's of two drooling three-year-
old children after their first trip fromthe Airport. to Pelionvile

One of the -most amazing things about Haitian mdtorists is
the'i unshakable belief that the best place to park a car is in
the middle of the road. A motorist whosp car is in perfect con-
dition does this automatically, but one whose, auto has gotten,
a flat, usually .'.beds cooperation. If by any charfce the
blow-out ocerrs on the -side of the road, he either hails or is in.-
nrrt-catcly arcosted by a good citizen with a measuring tape.
IAll those ir possession of one are members of 'Police de sito-
yens- qui centralize tout bagaille='] who faithfully measures the
id'th of'the road. marking the. nerve center, of the same, and
then proceeds in either getting Kielp or himself pushing the
stricken avoiture, to the eiact middle of the road. [I hear a
slight deviation is punishable by trois- gourdes; 1,his is pura
hearsay; I cannot swear to its veracity. and I prefer not to be
quoted on the above, as I always try to avoid trouble with the
unions]. Once in the -middle of the road. the car is jacked up
'nd then left to rest for as long as possible'
Of course'the -duties of a really donscilentious citizen do not
"stop here.- If the car withF a flat happens to be 'a small Euro-
pean model, the road is.still Jleft passable. -,This could rei'ly
cause trouble. -[The fine. for a, car left,passaple in the middle
of. the road is deux gourdes et .demie. This. has been checked
and double checked.] The situation requires ingenuity. Either
another small foreign car must be found without delay, and put
alongside the first, or better still two camionettes [caraion?. of
course, are perfect but are not as easily obtained] ,should be
produced to barricade the road completely. .
St. much for the free right-of-way.
The night presents -other .problems [or joys if you are a
member of the Societd Crepukculeuse des Motoristes lllufmints
Thf-re are five [5] vardatiohs of night cars as I choose to
see them :
1) *L'auto de nuitl sans lunes, a simply invisible,. deadly
thing waiting -for. you on the road;
2) ,L'auto qui flirted, with a ope-eyed smile that goes ow%
and off -like a timid virgin. pot quite sure whether, Ler
mother is' watching her.
3) *L'alto quz sourit*, with its little eyes, the parking
lights. It's like a smile, you're never sure its .meant
for you unless you collide with it. Of course pe'pic
who are familiar with fire-flies will have no trouble
mistaking these for theinsects and never have the
chance to regret it.
4) *L'auto sans derrieren, inviting, tempting, teasing mys
terious woman oF the world; you are never quite .F.*'e
whether she is far or only inches ahead of you. And
when you come in contact with her hard, youthful body,
oh- but this is a family newspaper.
5)cL'auto tout illuminde. which dazzles you with so much
brightness that you wham into the nearest camioneite -
or dl'auto sans derriere.,
Ap for pedestrians who are responsible for two of my u!care.
I have but a few words to say' 'On ne peut pas s'amuser toutele
temps a As everyone knows there are only two categorize of
Haitian pedestrians [both groups strongly unionized] : tho2-;
who aresistent jusqu'au dernier moment- and those persistent jus
qu'd la fin., The less courageous ones give you 9 chance, but only
a slight chance, of dying of a heart attack at the wheel. Thos?.
who resist all the way are only responsible for your death
through collision with another car.
But then there are always the three traffic-lights in town
on which you car hang yourself anytime at all.

attract the great nubb'e d'
tourists and to Inak-6 tielr-stdty -
a, pleasant one. Bumt t1ie',stic-
ess of any enterprise depends
a scientific study...
:Now the tourist is not always
|y to please. First of all one
must know ,yhat he wants. The
Pyerage tourist comes from a
coUntry. where there is a g&ret
deal 0t be seen and when he
comes to Haiti he wants to se
arinething different, .. aometing

'U"nfortunately many of the
ads of this Rfebfitc are nrt
et in "a condition to make it
easy for this type of visitor to
Be the unique and pichiresq-ie
parts of oiir country. But aide
oni these temporary difictilties'
fi can offer the tourist many
ledid views a2d .original set-
near 6ur beautiful Port-ad-
,* However, there is still quite
a gap to fill up. Actually there
is no tourist center to welcome
the tourist on the water froat.
The visitors disembark hap-
iaardly and find there is no
prepared itinerary available to
them. Because of this overst-'.t
'some tourists do not even come
ashore, because they say not
kriowing Haiti they are fearful
,of going about without a guide
*.book, or aT least without a water
-ide tourist center.*
It would seem that we. have a
j tendency not to consider the
'?sailors of the Anierican na,'y
ships as -tourists. Quite on t>ie
contrary they are amongst our
Most important tourists from
an economic poi.it of view. For
I'^example when there are some
".4wo thousand in town and each
b.one spends a minimum of 20
lao6llars a day it is something not
'to be overlooked. This is why
I should like to insist on two
1 points. First: a guide book in
,Sngllsh, Spanish and French :o
e distributed to the sailors of
|te Guantanamo aval Base.

A helpful citizen points out the
street signs giving directions "

Second; a reception center.
With this center and this leMf-
let qne is bound f.o avoid the
present confusion which leaves
the visitors- to the whim of Ihe
chauffeur whose one idea is to.
take them to a night club. So
much the more as many amongst
the visitors would like to Z?e

through the friendship and asso

The work of M. Despas has n- '

Among M. Despas's interests

Charlotte Amalie, lives for the
tourist. Prices are sky high, and

there two levels of tourist:
thesocial set that frequents the

ambitious. Of course', any'U.S.

can go to the United States [the
inh ibitants of the British Vir-

Physically the islands are un-
spectacular, rather dry-and have
fine beaches. With Basse Terre,

commonly as club foot. He now
after several operations and
good care, wears shoes and can

Yes. there are miracles go-ng
on every day and we do not
realize it. These children with-
out -this help would have been

their lives. Of course it could
not have been done without Lhe

I have been asked to include
a short unte from Sister Joa:
Margret to you :
We feel that St. Vincent',
work in.general for rehabilita
tion of the handicapped ha&
been, richly .blessed.... It. has inol
been the results of 'the prayer,

and work of one o0 two/or evan
a few. It is the result of the
sincere 'interest, the fervent
prayers and the giving, many
times sacrificially,' of literally
hundreds of persons and groups
in the States as well as in Haiti.
We wish, once again, to say
'THANK YOU*. and hope you
will each feel it as individual
expression of gratitude.,'
I also jpin the thanks of Sis-
ter Margaret to you for helping
the- blind to see, the crippled to
walk. and the deaf to hear. God
bless you all.

One Mist Work For Happiness:

Peace On Earth, Good Will...

. With heroic determination
men throughout the centuries
bave been wishing each oth.
happiness. But true happiness
always seems to elude them oi
the individual, the national o
the international plane. Why !
it so? It is so because it is no
enough to wish for a blessing
especiaUlly for q blessing as corn
plex, as elusive, as difficult o
attainment as happiness. One
must work for it unceasingly
and one must take the logical
steps to play the indispensable
foundation for its realization.
Of all the formulae given to
men in this ineluctable search
none ever came based on su"h
high authority, from a source
so divine, none so simple and
compelling as the heavenly mes
Sage which rang out nearly
2.000 years ago in the humble
valley of Bethlehem : 'Peace
, bn Earth, Good Will toward

We were told implicitly that
o happiness would Le possible
on this earth unless we attain-
ed peace between men and un-
'less we practice good will to-
wards one another. That is,
Peace founded upon Justice was
tO be the supreme goal'of the
Struggle of Humanity. Then a
golden age could be ushered in.
Moreover that same message
ad been given repeatedly by
philosophers and religious lead-
,ers throughout the centuries.
' .We therefore know the goal and
we know the way. .
And still behold the state of
the world. What a tragic pic-
ture it offers to the disconsolate
eyes of its inhabitants. Through
out history lands have been de-
Vastated, cities destroyed, homes
burned, millions of men, wo-
Smen and children tortured, maim
ed and massacred, and, in spite
of human progress in almost
every sphere of activity, more
Wealth is being spent in. the
.making of weapons of destrun-



I tion. more men are being trail
s ed in the science and art c
r swift, wholesale, horrible ann
s hilation than ever be. n- in hi
1 tory. Is then this goai r,
r main forever out of our reach
s Is it possible that the Heaven1l
t messengers deluded men whei
they promised them. 'Peace o
- Earths and urged sGood Wi'
f toward Men.*, No, that is nc
e conceivable. Our reason, wheo
y at its best, proclaims that if w
only practised the highest form
of justice in human relations w,
6ould have enduring Peace.
It must be then that the
hearts and minds of men neec
be cleansed and purified. I1
must be that the brutal instincts
inherited from lowly origins
have lingered tenaciously in
our nature, that instead of being
thwarted and eradicated they
have been only diabolically re-
fined to attain greater efficiency
in their apalling outbreaks of
And so a moral uprising, a spi-
ritual revival, a social revolu-
tion .all reaching to the very
core of our social organization,
are indispensable. It now be-
comes evident that, with the de-
velopment of atomic science, the
only alternative to such a re-
form can be suicide.
* But while we are awaiting
this happy, consummation of a
moral regeneration we must
continue to be .as cheerful as
possible, continue to" wish one
another .A Merry Christman
and a Happy New Year.a This
ultimate goal for the nations is
far in the distance but right
here thbre are reasons for re-
joicing. It Is during this yeqr
that is to be celebrated the 50oth
anniversary of Haitian indepen-
dence. This is an occasion of
genuine pride and a reason for
well founded hope. If -it has
been possible for an oppressed.
mass of slaves to gain their free-
dom and to maintain it for a
century and a half, to-lift thpn
selves up to a fairly high level
of moral decency, of .political
efficiency, then there must be
hope also for the whole of man-
kind. if their, problems are
tackled with a similar courage
and determination. I
