Baldwin, favoured us with a
parting summary of his

which he probably saw more
of Haiti and talked to more
Haitians than most visitors
could boast of after a month
in the Republic. In'addition
to visiting Cap Haitien, Jac-

managed to attend g half doz-

unforgettable one in his hon-

and to call on such old friends
as M. Dantes Bellegarde and

of course his interview with

who left of a Point IV scholar

ination basis, the scholarship
was conducted by the Nation-

the Haitian American Insti-

candidates.
At the Orientation Centre
of the American University in
Washington, Mr. Buteau went
on sight-seeing tours to such
places as the White House,
and generally became acclim-
atised.
At Howard he made such
fine progress that in June
last year the F.O.A: form-
erly the T.C.A. granted
him a scholarship to Michi-
gan State University on his
record.
At Michigan State he room-

which he praises highly, along

from other parts of the world.

SSeveral months ago, beard-
ed Amerigo Montagutelli
came to Haiti to install the
Bolivar statue presented to
Haiti by Venezuela; and on
his return he brought a :bust
of His Excellency Paul E.
Magloire whom he had seen
and admired.
He has recently been com-
missioned by the Haitian Gov-
ernment to make a 42 metre
statue of Petion which will be
presented to Venezuela as a
reciprocal gesture. His stu-
dies of the background of his
subject have made him decide
not do to the statue on horse-
back, as Petion is remember-
ed' more for his diplomatic ex-
ploits than for his military
coups.
The final touches will be
made' before the "statue leaves
Haiti, and will come into 'be-

He left in search of neces-
sary materials on Sunday but
will return in a.week or two
to start the eight-month task
of making this statue.
Our' distinguished guest
has studied in the art centres
of the world, Italy, Paris, and
many others. He has been
honoured by several coun-
tries, receiving the Legion

INSERTION DEMANDED

The Jamaican Colony was
not represented at the recep-
tion given at the British Em-
'bassy in honour of ihe Gov-
ernor of Jamaica, arid what
made it all the more strange
was that Jamaicafiis were
good enough to be invited to
official functions given by
the IHtaitian Government to
welcome the representative
of Jamaica in the person of
Sir Hugh Foot..
' This recalls the treatment
meted out in Bermuda to the
coloured people during the re-
cent visit of Her Majesty to
that colony. We must re-
mind the Ambassador that ie :
is in an'independent coloured .
republic, and not in some ter-
ritory in the far flung British-J
.Empire.
It is time for Jamaicans
and other coloured subjects
of Her Majesty to be ade-
quately represented here and
in other parts of the world
where coloured people arg in
the majority.

Trumpets and bugles blar-

shrilled as the carnival ban-

Hall on Sunday afternoon.
Fantasy ruled the occasion
and colours were gay, tireless
votaries of the Mardi Gras
danced to the throbbing of
the drums. People who had

the contagious rhythm and
joined the masquers. Some,
exhausted, threw themselves

Fernand Pierre Amiama
And Gesner Abelard
At The Centre'd'Art
.On Wednesday night, an
exhibition of paintings by Fer \ .
nand Pierre, Xamier Amiama
and Gesner Abelard opened
at the Centre d'Art. The
works were greatly admired
and ustly so. Amiama's bold
but delicate technique suited
his mystic subjects sis> and primitive dancers
swaying in gracefully violent
rhythm and his work has
gained richer, brighter tone.
The popular, painters,
Abelard, and Pierre have
vastly different styles and
their work contrasts with
Amiama's who treats his
subject as a pattern in light
and shade. They both find
expression in the ,voodoo*
rites of early days, and Albel-
ard's massive' ATitatos vied
with Pierre's Mysterev for
the choice of the vvotaries,

MV YfMirr n n u nirimn Mr. cZ, confides in tnh thnt


SA-UU&UU a iu LI& N.


Whenever there is a chance
and there usually is daily,
I summon my Zoulou friend,
who is quick to drink with
me and tell me of his adven-
tures. To ,begin with my
Zoulou friend is considered a
tramp, hobo, ofttimes beggar,
and a vacantly proud indivi-
dual who cares not, nor is he
cared about. He is neither
a.clown nor mimic,,nor char-
latan, nor thief. He is frown-
ed u4pon, and laughed about,
criticized and loved. He is a
Zoulou and we will call him
Mr. <. My friend is not
anonymous, nor is he very
popular. In spite of this he
remains my friend and per-
haps yours.
This morning he comes to
me and tells me of a Job he
once held, as a caretaker and
grave digger in a cemetery.
And how at night he prayed
for the souls of the dead. And
how companies of Zombies
passed him in the night swear
ing allegiance to Coca Cola.
He tells me the dead only
- drink in the day and that this
is why he has to carry four or
five pint bottles of clairin in
his macoute. This he swears,
was the reason for his down-
fall. He reasons, and says
him why the dead don't drink
at night when it is cooler. He
tells me that they consume
enough in the day to keep
them asleep at night. He
takes another sip of clairin
and wipes his stubby beard.
My friend speaks four lan-
guages Creole, French,
English and Spanish. All of
which form one language, his
own that I .bend my ears
to understand. My friend is
a'barber, lover, poet and sol-
dier. He can neither read,
nor interpret, nor discover.
He is lost among people and
unwilling to learn. He' knows
more than you or 1, and will
insist on this truth.

He suggests on cutting my
hair with his machette, and
that his services are ten times
better than those of an (offi-
cial barber.> He says that by
shaving my head with his
Imachette. corn silk will re-
appea'r as new growth. He
twists his nose and pulls the
corncob from the calabash he
has filled with (grog,>. An-
other sip of this and his eyes
are like neon signs. He sits
back and comforts himself -
staring at me as if my face
were made of silk.
He spits to his left and
gains his ragged composure, a
fly alights upon his still wet
lips, he slaps his mouth, and
the fly is squashed. He picks
the insect from his lips,
throws it to the ground, and
talks of Toussaint's battles
against the French. cBelle

porter asked. cM'a prallx !,
he exclaimed, anxious to
start.
He had just finished top-
ping Macaya. The peak of
the largest mountain range in
Haiti, took him a day to sur-
mount. He ate at 7 a.m. just
before starting the climb and
at 7:00 p.m. at the end of the
descent. He was accompanied
.by a Professor from Califor-
nia, John Street and agrono-
mist Harry Nouailles, who is
now in Canada. The descent
of the peak took only four
hours! He confesses they slid
down most of the way on the
seat of their trousers! The
Father doffs his dignified
white robes to don khaki and
shorts for these expeditions.
He says that he has ordered
a new haversack and a s.pe-
cial pafr of hill boots he
must be serious about over-
coming Everest !
The mountains are wonder
ful, the robust priest claims.
He loves them. He' has cut
his way 'through impenetr-
able forests of Macaya, he
bas braved the heights of the
tallest of them all, the Everest
of Haiti Pic La Selle,
8,000 ft. of limestone crags
and pine forests. La Selle
was easy though, he explains,
there is a track there. The
peasant women carry 'baskets
over it every day.

to add that it was wonderful
exercise for his 'body. We
could see that.
The real motive behind the
PNre's ramblings are his love
for nature and an urgent de-
sire to meet and know his
people. Pere Gousse is'a Hai-

mel, a sea-side town in the
South. So many artists are
born there that they now call
it
It was here that Pere
Gousse grew up, and it was
here that his intense love of
nature which was to take him
nto the deep, enthralling
heart of his land.
So, when the ,evacances>
comes at Easter, Pere Gousse
will be off into the hills that
he loves. His companion will
be his nineteen-year-old bro-
ther Gerard, whom he is train
ing in the art of mountain

Roving Reporter For Past 50 Years

S Covering Sir Hugh's Visit To Haiti


Tall, sixtyish, George Ward
SPrice, for the past half cen-
tury 'The London Daily
Mail's> emissary to the trou-
ble spots of the world, arrived
on Saturday afternoon from
Kingston, where he had heard
of the forthcoming visit to
the Republic of Jamaica's
* Governor, Sir Hugh Foot. He
has come with the double
Purpose of covering the his-
torical occasion for the eMailb
Sand of seeing our country, of
which he has heard so much.
This is a wonderful opportun-
ity for the young journalistic
aspirants in the country to
cull a few tips -rom a sympa-
thetic cold-timer.s


Forty-six years ago, before
any of the catachlysmic events
that threw the world of our
day into chaos, Mr. Price join
ed the editorial staff of the
cMailb, and became their as-
sistant correspondent in Ber-
lin. Even at that time there
:was unrest in the countries
of Europe, especially among
the tiny Balkan states of
Montenegro, Serbia, Croatia,
iRoumania, Hungary, who
were held between Turkish
encroachment and Austrian
expansion as in a vice; and,
too, among the larger states of
Greece and Turkey. What
his6rians term dthe second
,phase of the Eastern Ques-
tion? had develapped into a
dangerous crisis, and bade
- fair to endanger the peace of
tlie world.
It was here that .George


Mr. George Ward Price
of tDaily Mail.*


Price first covered a battle,
in the he rode out on horse back,
wearing side-arms, beside the
Turkish General: the general
was very helpful when the bat
tie was to his army's advan-
tage, but tried to prevent the
correspondent's understand-
ing the course of events when
the Greeks forced the Turks
to retreat.
Mr. Price also bears the
distinction of being a pioneer
in air combat a German
pilot, demonstrating one of
the original ers> productions in Turkey
was trapped there when the
Greco-Turkish war broke out,
and enlisted the eMailb report
er's assistance in getting his


craft up. Mr. Price cranked
the propeller for him and off
he soared. It was this adven-
turous-type that helped the
<'Mailh achieve a circulation
of one million !
'This fine old school of ad-
venturing correspondents is
fast disappeairng, but George
Price Ward remains an active
member of the Press world,
pointing the way for his
younger colleagues. He was
on vacation in Jamaica but
immediately abandoned it to
pursue a ((story.)

((A LA CITADELLE !>
Mr. Price looks forward to
visiting the famous Citadel
[of interest to all Britishers)
of Christophe, when the Gov-
ernor of Jamaica's party goes
there. The two-hour mule
ride did not daunt him:
his visits to local busi-
nessmen, bankers and mu-
seums, displaying an intense
interest in the affairs of our
Republic, and providing him
with a store of information
and a series of thrills. The
greatest pleasure of his visit
to Haiti has been, of course,
his half hour audience with
His Excellency, Paul E. Ma-
gloire, at the Palace,a distinc-
tion he has greatly appreci-
Sated.

ROVING, ALWAYS

The only countries which
he has never, so far visited
are Russia, Colombia, Nica-
ragua, and San Salvador. He
has never been hampered by
a desk or an office to return
to, so he has travelled in
search of news throughout
the world. His opinion is
worthy of respect, and he says
that life in the big countries
is not usually as pleasant as
in the small ones, and Haiti,
he adds, is a small country.

HITLER MIGHT HAVE
ESCAPED
SAnother subject on which
he is an authority besides
Hitler? is that of Hitler's
demise in the last war.
Mr. Price thinks he es-
capes. The German, he ex-
plained, planned their every
move with care, providing for
every contingency long before
hand. It is probable, there-
fore, that they arranged foc
Hitler's escape. .This argu-
ment is supported by a story
of an unidentified woman who
left Berlin shortly before the
fall in a small plane with a
German General !

most unsophisticated pea,
sant enjoys himself on Sa

brating vary with individual
tastes and social position
Saturday is the night for
dancing: Sbme people dance
at nightclubs, other attend'
voodoo or religipua ceremo
nials. All kinds of people get
together to chat, to sing, to
listen. to music. I
Everybody eats on Satur-
day night. ,
Everywhere along the road-
sides in front of little shops,
beside the dance floor youm
see wide pans of food kept
warm over charcoal embers"
-delectable looking fried
fish, :browned in cocoa
nut oi; -crusty, pressed plan.
tains; grillaux of pork, that
have beehn marinated with
herbs in the juice of .sour
oranges and"'slowily roasted

ness. .
In 'the topflight night'

first ordeal of the kind he
had had to endure since' his
life as a private citizen, but
he consoled himself with the
President's kind intivation to
dine at the an event to which he eagerly
looked forward.
Mr. Miller received the

teen, when he decided that
Sweden was all right in its
way but certainly no place for
a swashbuckling buccaneer.
He tried Canada but finding
it difficult to become acclima-
tised to the cold Inever was
a buccaneer that revelled in
40 below zero weather, he
trekked south to Rio de Jan-
eiro, which he loved but not
enough to stay; then on he
pressed to Caracas, Venezue-
la. Though the streets are
very nearly paved with gold
in Venezuela, Raymond still
bought something else, some
vaguely defined place which
seemed to exist only in his
mind.
In his travels he came to
Haiti : it was the country of
his dreams. So he applied to
the government for an exten-
sion of his three months to
six. He.even wrote His Ex-
cellency Paul E. Magloire,'
begging him-not to throw him
out just yet. Only three
months more is all -he asks,
that is if they won't let him
stay for good.

'SUINVAY, FEBRUARY 7th

. (Land Of Zombies) Article Evokes


Resentment And (Squawks)

Our article published last interference, to awaken our
Week, cLand Of Zombies, own countrymen to the need.
Poisoners and Jealous Rela- for a crusade which will pre-

resentment by many distin-
guished members of the Jam-
Saican community here. It is
with .deep regret that we no-
tice this unfortunate attitude,
...as our aim was the further-
'ance of a better understand-
ing between the two coun-
Stries, between the middle men

The average person is not

conditions existing in the
countries around him, and
he is in every country of

the rest of the world.
In many of the West Indian
islands, stories of the strange
customs observed in the neigh
pouring islands are far from
rare. There. are tales they
tell about Barbadians; they
are reputed to put their poul-
try out to pasture, as horses
or cows would be, with a.col-
lar around their necks; and
they are the subject of many
jokes, as are the people 'f
most other islands.

members of a certain set,
cosmopolitan enough to have
travelled, and who are .con-
versant on the true conditions
existing in other States, know
Haiti as it is. The gentlemen
in our country who come from
Jamaica, no doubt mix only
with this more fortunate
group, and have probably
never heard the tales which
we cited in our -last edition.
The informed people live large
ly in the capital Kingston,
and are those fortunate en-
ough to have been here or to
have friends here. or to have
met our footballers when they
went to the island. But there
is more to Jamaica than King-
ston. There are many thou-
sands of Jamaicans who have
no idea what the Capital is
like, and certainly no idea of
what goet on in Haiti, save
that which their grandfathers
conveyed in the lurid stories
he told them at bed-time, or
round the open fire place in
the kitchen on some rainy
night, when they sat, sipping
chocolate, or eating grated
coconut and new sugar.,
*
Even in Kingston, there
are many who have never had.
the benefit of meeting the
friends of our Jamaican com-
inunity here, and who have
never met our football emis-
saries if they had, conver-
sation with them might 'be a
trifle.difficult, too and who

International de Commerce Luncheon At Riviera


Wednesday, Mr. R a y -

Director in Haiti, gave a
highly informative speech at
the weekly CiClub Internation-
al de Commerce> luncheon at
Hotel Riviera. He was intro-
duced. by PAA Manager Mr.
Roger JaTmah, and proceeded
to outline the successful ex-
periments carried out by the
Point 1V in this country, ana-
lyzing our economic possibili-
ties favourably. He spoke al-
so on the Artilbonite project,
which, he thinks,.wi-ll be, of
great benefit to the country.
The scheme which was first
contemplated in 1740 and
now organizations such as
Sclpa and the O.D.V.A. are
infusing new hope and vi-
gour into the scheme, which
should benefit the country in
no small way.

Point 1V work in concord
with the U.N. technical staff
as their programmes are simi
lar, he said. He went on to
explain the financial system
of the Point IV common Fund
- the U.S. contributed 225,-
000 dollars to Haiti's 680,000
dollars. Mr. Smith has re-
cently asked foran increase
in the United States portion,


and a corresponding decrease
in the Haitian quota. This de-
mand. has been granted by
the American Congress.
Mr.. Smith also passed on
the good news that more ex-
' perts are coming opt to work
on projects for our economic
development.

ST. BOULE AND HIS TIRES

Nearly every Port-au-Princien should know as popular
a citizen of their town as Saint Boule, whose madness, as
you already know, makes him charge everyone with burg-
lary. Call him Saint Boule and he will accuse you of theft,
tracing your ancestral origins to thieves with colourful
habits, in a voice which might easily be mistaken for one of
those sound-trucks that inhabit the city.

Continued from
other saw to it thatishe got in
the appointed number of
hours every day. She looks
back on this period, as being
mostly hard work.
She made her first appear-
ances in public with Lina Blan
chet. An incident a foreign
friend told Yout Reporter
was in 1948 when this friend
walked into one of the old
houses on the Champ de
Mars and found two beautiful
young ladies seated at two
fine grand pianos. Perspira-
tion cascaded down their
faces, an ecstatic light was in
pheir eyes as their fingers
rippled along a wonderful
unison pouring 'forth a thril-
ling classical meringue from
their own hearts. They were
Micheline Laudun and Mme
Lina Blanchet. Micheline was
then in her teens [she is today
only twenty-threel and had
returned from 18 months at
Fisk University and the New
York College of Music. She
had gone to New York in 1947
after receiving a scholarship
accorded her by the Haitian
American Educational Com-
mittee.
Upon her return she gave
her first large concert in Hai-
ti at the Paramount Theatre
on December 9. 1948. Rosy
-and wholesome, bubbling over
%with enthusiasm, talent and
energy she was given an ova-
Stion. It was during this pe-
riod that she found time to

recognition of her talent.
One of Micheline Laudun's
happiest moments came at a
recital of.the famous Margue-
rite Long School in Paris.
Classed as a professional she
was almost the last to play
before a critical audience.
She was nervous, of course,
:but as soon as she started to

ence applauded and applaud-
ed. After the concert Mme
Long gathered her pupils to-
gether and commented, criti-
cized, suggested changes, etc.
on the playing of each one.
When she came to Mile Lau-
'dun, she hesitated a moment
and then said tres bien. No
extravagant expressions of
praise could have made Miche
line happier:
Now an acknowledged bril-
lianF pianist and still the
modest, unaffected young girl
of the house on the Champ
de Mar* Micheline Laudun is
returning to Paris to con-
tinue her work and to pre-
Ipark to take part in a great
International Concours de Pi-
ano next Jine.
IRumohr has it that a cer-
tain young man plans to ac-
company her for the rest
of her life. In all events she
will be' accorhpanied 'by the
good wishes of all of Haiti.

Round Table
Talk Voodoo

At? the round table talk in
the National Tourist Office on
Sunday list, the"topic was
Vodun. After hearing Dr.
Price MVar's opening address,
the group was addressed by
Mr.-Emmnanuel C. Paul, whose
thesis on the voodoo rites and
gods led to a discussion,on the
ethnic relations of that cult.
Secretary of State Dorsin-
ville, who attep.ded, promised
to publish Mr. Paul's thesis
and that of Mr. Philippe Ster-
linon the iVeves vodunn gods]
coinmeiiting on their close re-
sem'blance to the gods of Ame
rican and Indian primitives.
Other orators then pointed
out' that their counterparts
alsb exist 'in Africa.

Mr. Achille, in explaining
this, stressed the pdiit that
human concept are similar in
all peoples and the manifes-
tation of itiese ideas are thus
analogous.
Mr. Lorimer Deniis, Colonel
Maximilien, Messrs. Maurice
Dieudonn6, Lamartiniire Ho-
norat, Roger Dorsinville and
all the "other knights discus-
sed these articles adding in-
teresting notes.
The next meeting wil' be
on Thursday afternoon at the
Touist Office Camelot.

that the guilty, if they are
guilty, received fair treat-
ment.
mFor a week's visitor,> he
told us, to judge by appear-
ances would be unfair, since
appearances do not always re-.
flect realities. I have heard
such contradictory evidence
even on the leapt controver-
sial subjects that I wouldn't
attempt to judge the actual
facts. This might be said 'of
many countries, of course, byt
it appears to be especially
true of Haiti where so much
information seems to pass by
word of mouth.. Mr. Baldwin
added that he would have to
wait for the Government's in-
dictment a nd the facts
brought out in the course of
the trials themselves later
this month before coming to
any definite conclusions. In
the meantime, he concluded,
he had. great confidence in M.'
Sylvain, and in the' Haitian
Ligue with which he was most
impressed, to carry out its pro
per functions. The Interna-
tional League. for the .Rights
of Man, he reminded us, was
but 'a parent body, providing
friendly guidance and counsel'
when requested to do so.
