OF THE WEEK
It was a brisk two o'clock in
the morning of October 15, 1919
when Corporal Amanda Hayes
of the New York City Police De-
partment arrived at the intersec-
tion of Lenox Avenue and 135th
Street in sleeping Harlem. Only -r
a few drunks lurched along. Un-
steadily in search of any place
that would hold still for a bit,
one of the -drunks, lurched into

Hayes tried vainly to 'shield
his bleeding face from the goug-
ing brass knuckles, but managed
to get his whistle to his swollen
lips. Summoning up his failing
breath he blew a shrill blast
which defeated him for a mo-
ment. Then he doubled up in
a painful knot to stave off in-
evitable death as long as possible

Light refreshments, including
excellent coffee, finished, the
party left for the newly installed
rice-processing factory where
they saw the machinery in mo-
tion, and inspected the different
types of rice, grown in different
fields. Here the pottery work
also attracted much favourable
comment, especially from Lady
Sylvia. Thence to the Kenaf
processing buildings where Marc
Holly explained at length the
process by which the leaves are
placed in a shallow trench until
decomposed when they are man-
ually flagellated till the fibre is
free. The advantage of kenaf he
explained was its quick growth,
maturing much earlier than si-
sal. From there to the poultry
house to visit some well fed
and totally unimpressed New
Hampshire Reds, and so out
again to the main road after an
hour spent keenly discussing and
approaching the Governor's car,
removed his battered peaked cap
straightened the old Naval jac-
ket, clicked the heels of the old
Navy shoes and said, in English:
*I. sir, am the King of England..
His Excellency replied that he
was indeed charmed to make so

some English currency, while

Rubbing sleep from their
eyes, the Governor, his lady, his
Aide Captain Frank Pringle, Mr.
Ward Price, oldest yet most ener
getic [led the cavalcade], Major
Cqrviington, and Dr. Roy Levy
set off to conquer the Citadelle.
Stopped first at Sans Souci,
where the Governor said some-
thing ought to be done to pre-
serve that wonderful monument
to King Christophe, also admir-
ing the Milot Church.
The toil up the inaccessible
fortress convinced the party, es-
pecially Lady Foot, that it could
never have been captured by as-
sault as no one could have en-
ough strength after so strenu-
ous a climb. Lady Foot scorn-
ed an offer of a rest at the usual
tourists' halt along the way say-
ing with grim determination :
-We will press on-, then adding
*If I get off this animal, I'll
never be able to get on again.v
With a sigh the cavalcade forg-
ed on. after eons of struggle
finally rewarded by a sight the
Governor said was even more
magnificent than he thought it
would be. Lady Foot did not
say anything, she was lying on
the soft grass.
The Governor asked how pra-
visions were brought up in the
days of Christophe and was told
horses were imported from Jam-
aica. The Citadelle was explor-
ed thoroughly, interest awaken-
ed in the visitors by British
made guns. cannon balls sprinkl-
ed over the scene, dank dun-
geons, a secret passage, and even
a trap door burglar alarm which
betrayed unwary invaders who
in falling would cry "Ha! Ha!,
from which the trap was named
'Ha Ha. Mr. Ward Price said
he could think of funnier things,
and everyone laughed.
The scenic beauty entranced
the Governor's party. and after
a long while spent enjoying ir,
they munched a bread and
cheese picnic lunch, washed
down with a "Scotch. in Chris-
tophe's bedroom. Then they saw
other interesting points: Chr's-
tophe's monument they did not
know was there; the powder nm.i
gazine that accounted for a
former Governor of the Cita-
delle. Christophe's brother-in-
law led to inspection of the tomb
In which what was left of him,
an arm, was buried. The Govern-
or scouted the theory repeated by
Doctor Levy that the mortar
holding the fort together was
cow's blood, molasses and bone.
Flying over by Army DC3 that
afternoon at 4:00, the ADC, Cap-
tain succombed to sleep the other
members also drowsy but Lady
Foot and Sir Hugh docilely dis-
played intense interest -in the
green and brown squares of Hai-
tian soil beneath them. Wel-
comed at Port au Prince airfield
by British Ambassador Mill Ir-
ving and charming wife, Sir
Hugh and Lady Foot spent the
night recuperating from pains
at the 4,000 ft. home of the Am-
bassador but, to the great joy
of Lady Foot, accessible by car.
Monday morning the Governor
and Lady Foot showed how well
they swim as they revelled in
the clearest water of the Carib-
bean around the Iroquois reef.
They also exhibited their capa-
city for speechless admiration
when they saw the under-water

AS PEGLER SEES IT
HAITI'S INDEPENDENCE YEAR -
AND UFREEN PRESS
By WESTBROOK PEGLER
PORT-AU-PRINCE, THaiti, Feb. 3.
Adam Powell, the Harlem Negro Congressman, an ardent
Roosevelt 'Democrat-, recently represented our Government "n
,ceremonies celebrating the 150th anniversary of the 'indepen-
*,dence of Haiti. Haiti is a nation of about 3.000,000, mostly Ne-
groes of straight African descent. 9
Most of the others are hybrids of various hues. The lan-
.uge is a French patois larded with African phrases. Powell's
wife is a nightclub pianist known as Hfzel Scott.
The Weekly Sun of Port-au-Prince said she was a native of
'rinridad and reported that, after attending the palace ball cf
IHis Excellency, President Lt.-Gen. Paul E. Magloire, she had
to hurry to Miami to keep a professional engagement.
For this reason, she had to postpone until next April her
charity show for a fund narded in honour of Mme President
Marian Anderson, the noted Negro singer, did give a show
during the festivities. I was told by a member of the Ameri-
can set that she was paid $3,000, a reasonable fee for an artist
of her class and renown, but Andre Roosevelt, a member of the
Oyster hay c/an, who strongly resembles old Theoddre, rimde
further inquiries and heard it both ways.
He heard that she did and she didn't. Under the rules and
I i .. 4 1 ,
discipline of the unions which Miss Anderson and Powell's wife
of necessity must join under the American ,democracy*, both
wouldd expose themselves to heavy fines and other punishment
by giving of their talent free without formal permission.
Mr. Roosevelt keeps an Inn on a mountain 1,500 feft above
the'bay of Port-au-Prince. He is a pillar of society, civilization
and inter-American understanding. His place is called Ibo Lele,
,a voodoo term signifying a-god of the jungle.
He has a swimming pool dangling on a cliff, and be greets
each guest on arrival with a rum punch containing the best ele-
iment~ of pentathol, nepenthe and dolce farniente.
*' The democracy of the American Democratic Party is a never-
ending source df more and more majestic contempt.
After lending his official presence, presumably at the ex-
pense of the American taxpayers, Powell sailed for New York
exhaling assurances of his determination to improve Haiti's con-
dition in the sugar market and to obtain larger grants of pow-
dared milk and American surplus butter for the Haitian people,
who are not well fed.
But, even as his noble sentiments were printed in the Sun
9f Port-au-Prince, the same paper published news of a political
,incident which would have raised howls of fascism, McCarthyism
and Kluxery from Powell and all his political kin had anything
remotely like it happened in the United States.
Two members of the Haitian Chamber of Deputies were. in
jail and one Senator was on the lam. The Government had
.grabbed 18 other prisoners, including five printers, who had
kicked out hostile political dodgers on a job press.
The Haitian Government has my permission to run its own
affairs according to its own laws, constitution and wise judg-
ment. I offer no gratuitous and snobbish judgment on its con-
,duct in this emergency. That would come with bad grace from
a citizen of the nation which suffers equal persecutions from the
:CIO and the AF of L under charter from the Washington Gov-
It is none of my business hew Haiti meets emergencies of
this kind and I would like to do the same to Felix Frankfurter,
1Henry Wallace and La Boca Grande.
So I report excerpts from the Haiti Sun not in reproach to
the Government but as a commentary on the integrity and sin-
cerity of Powell and of the New York Times which, about the
iarne time, was effluviating about the noble significance of the
s.esquicentennial and thrusting a needle into the sensitive ribs
of Rafael Trujillo, the Gismo of the neighboring Dominican Re-
public, with an intimation that he was a Fascist and not, live
Magloire. a 'democrat.
The verbiage of these official communiques is rich in the
vitamins of official casuistry.
The first statement from the Secretary of State of Interior
said that 'even while the entire populace prepared to pay hom-
age to the fathers of our homeland, persons blinded by ambition
*and passion had plotted to create an atmosphere of insecurity
by circulating alarming rumours intended to set citizen against
To this end they distributed tracts 'published in contempt
of law, each one more calumnious than the one before,* disclos-
ing a foolish belief that the democratic demeanor of the Gov-
ernment was a sign of-weakness.
But--according to the panel code, public action has been
launched. A search has revealed firearms, sharp weapons.
tracts and seditious proclamations. Accordingly,, like the Nurn-
berg tribunal of Justice Robert Jackson of the U. S. Supreme
Court and the synthetic Brig. Gen. Telford Taylor, the Legisla-
ture at its imminent session would 'launch constitutional pro-
ceedings to permit competent authority to proceed against the
authors of the crimes-men who are protected by immunity-
in accordance with the fundamental charter..
Another communique said that in spite of the constitutional
provisions 'qecreedi by tie Government, other members of the
S. .IIT ,.
Legislature had continued to incite workers and students .o
strike and to cause disaffection among the arrried forces. Ac-
cordingly the Government had ordered the Judge d'Instruction
to take action against them.
In spontaneous indignation against such perfidy, all indus-
try in Port-au-Prince closed down next morning and the business
men and employes converged on the paTace lawn.
Girls who sort coffee beans with their fingers sang a song
of homage to Magloire. and the Presrdent came dlwn from his
balcony and told the multitude that ,I tm obliged once more
to wear my iron pants to suppress some vagabonds.,
Next day again, 'the palace lawn was a seething mass rf
Government employes, political and social groups reaffirming
loyalty to President Magloire.,
The Sun reported that 'from the palace steps beside a huge
oil painting of himself in a General's uniform., the President
'thanked the manifesters for their collaboration.*

The visit that the Governor of hea
.Jamaica together with gracious thi
FLady Foot has made to Haiti as- of
.sumes under present cireum- di'
Stances high symbolic meaning. m:
In accepting the kind invita- th
'tion of the President of the Re- or
public, Sir Hugh has brought us th
ia striking example of the sen- th
Stiments of friendship which bind
,the people of Jamaica to the
.people of Haiti, at the same th
Time, reaffirming the solidity of c1
,he relations which bind Great is
ritain to Haiti and which the b
activityy of the Ambassador of
'her Britannic Majesty, so hap- .
V pily seconded in his mission by
;Mrs. Mill Jrving, has. rendered
i-closer than ever.
The sincerity of these senti-
minents I was able to verify per-
sonally during my visit in King-
ston in 1952. I treasure the mem-
Fory of the cordial welcome
which we, my colleagues- Em-
S :manuel Gabriel Jean-Francois,

ed from the Governor as well
-as from the people of Jamaica.
Never have I felt so clearly the
.solidarity which exists between
i: the peoples of the Antilles..
Cuba, Puerto Rico, Jamaica
l'and Haiti form the archipelago
of the Greater Antilles whose.
contours show that they belong
all four to the same oro-
graphic system. The volcanic
eruptions. which millions of
years ago lifted them out of the
ocean separated them by arms
of the sea without disrupting
their primitive unity. The is.
land of Haiti' is located at the
cross roads of the structural
lines of the archipelago its
mountain chains being in the
R same direction as the Sierra
Maestra of Cuba to the north ;
the mountains of Jamaica to the
south; the heights of Puerto
Rico to the East.
As a consequence of these up-
of Danies Bellegarde
avals, in a vastly remote past,
ese four islands offer a variety
geological formations and a
versity of vegetable and ani-
al species which, in giving
em a similar appearance, have

rican Tourists. The picture of the Restaurant, its name and its
location, will be printed on the set as well as the name of the
dish which is its specialty.
The set will be sold at a moderate price and with our national
distribution we are certain that a great many thousands of these i
sets will be purchased. The sets will be distributed through the
department stores in every city of any importance in the United "
States and Canada and possibly also in Mexico, Central and
South America. The purchasers will be largely those in th.e
higher income brackets,'people who travel and look for outstand
ing restaurants and appreciate fine food.
Aux Cosaques Restaurant must be included among the top
40 restaurants of the world, and this is why we are writing .o
you. First we want your authorization. Second, we need a
.photograph or illustration of your establishment. Third, we re-
quire the name of the dish for which you are most famous, and
also, we would like to have the recipe of that dish. We ask for .
the recipe because we are certain we are going to receive many
requests for it and we shall supply it, giving you credit for it. I
am sure that this will further publicize your establishment.
The publicity that your restaurant will receive from the sale
of these sets should be most valuable and it shall be yours with-
out any cost at all. All we request of you is the photograph or
illustration of your establishment and the name and recipe of.
your outstanding dish.
We look forward to your early reply. We hope to get our 40
restaurants from the four corners of the world lined up within
the next few weeks and hope to be able to get in production be-
fore the winter is over.

JACMEL--- Today And Tomorrow
By Selden Rodman present. as well as such distin-
I had occasion last week. as

to Jacmel, a city that has al-
ways occupied a place very close
to my heart. As a poet, Jacmel

press most poignantly the lyric
quintessence of Haiti, just as
Cap Haitien symbolizes with its
violent history and massive ruins

Partly as a result of talks with
all of these well-informed citi-
zens, and partly as a result of a
long early-morning walk through
the streets and along the water-
front, I came to certain conclu-
sions about Jacmel. There are
dozens of Haitians, naturally,
who know more about Jacmel
than I will ever know. Never-
theless it is sometimes possible
for a sympathetic outsider, be-
cause of the very fact that he 2s
outside, and therefore looking at
the matter freshly and with a
certain perhaps naive en-
thusiasm to achieve a worth-
while ahd sometimes even uni-
que insight. When I ask a Hai-
tian friend, for example, to give
me his opinion of my native vil-
lage in the United States, I as-
sume that his insights will be
superior to my own; 1 am too
close to homd to see clear-
ly what goes on under my own
nose whereas he will have few
prejudices or preconceptions to
cloud his vision.
,In the case of Jacmel, I think
I can see clearly that a very few
improvements, involving rela-
,tively little Government expen-
diture could transform a dozing,
isolated Caribbean village into "i
Haitian tourist mecca rivalling
Le Cap and the capital itself.
These minimum improvements
might be considered under three
First, and most important,
would come the matter of roads.
At present only poets, adven-,/
turers, businessmen and luna-
tics will ford a river 87 times to
travel to Jaclnel; nor goes fly-
ing offer any permanent solu-
tion, even assuming that the
Air Force could be expanded
enough to handle a major tour-
ist influx. A road is under con-
struction, running at present a
little beyond Furcy and intend-
ed, when completed, to link up
with the very poor road which
now extends from Jacmel
through Marigot to Seguin. This
will be a road of great beauty,
,cenically, but the trouble with
it from the point of view of
opening Jacmel to tourists i.
that it will require, even when
Completely asphalted, at least
five hours to cover a round
trip of eleven hours motoring !
No. The only practical answer
I can see is to build a paved mo-
tor highway slightly above the
river-bed on the twenty-four
mile stretch between Carrefour
Fauchd and Jacmel. When this
is linked to the present excel-
lent road between Port au Prince
and Cayes already paved al-
most as far as L6ogane it will
provide the means of motoring
between Jacmel and the capital
in little more than an hour in
all weathers. Asphalt the five
miles of road between Jacmel
and Carreour Raymond and at
once Haiti has-a first-class white
sand ocean beach within com-
fortable reach of every tourist
who spends as little as one day
in Port au Prince. Instantly Jac-
mel, with its many other tourist
attractions and vitally import-
ant coffee industry, will have re-'
joined the Republic!
Compared to this, the other
steps required to make Jacmel
a major tourist center require
very little expenditure indeed.
By diverting the city's sewage
outlet, which at present empties
into a sink-hole below sea level
on the waterfront, the present
uninhabited strip of land which
lies between the harbour aid
the city streets could be turned
into an attractive park. This
strip is flat and already covered
with grass. Jacmel's two excel-
lent pensions, the Excelsior and
the Craft, could be expanded to
take care of the first influx of
visitors. Later on, a deluxe ho-
tel could be built, either above
the city or at Raymond les Bains
The series of natural basins
forming the source of the Ti
Riviere, west of Jacmel, consti-
tute a tourist attraction equal in
drawing-power to the ocean
beach if they could be made
a little more accessible. These
natural swimming pools lie less
than five miles from the city but
at present require five hours [on
horseback and on foot] for the
round trip. The awe-inspiring
beauty of this series of sparkling
waterfalls and milky-blue catch-
basins must be seen to be believ-
ed. The water is pure, and deep
- we were unable to touch bot-
tom in two of them --- and the
jungle surrounding them has
hardly been touched by human
hands. During the descent we
counted twenty different varie-
ties of edible fruit within one
stretch of half a mile. Even an
adequate trail, and a supply of
horses, would be enough to bring
the miracle of Bassin Bleu with-
in range of everyone.

Cardinal Si. Juite, the Fireworks Tycoon
There are hundreds of amateur fire works makers in Port
au Prince ... little boys who make their Chlorats from sulphur
and charcoal. And their fire-works constantly claim the lives o0
their users. At Jeremie, last month, three people were killed I,
E Chlopat explosion, and there were many others before them.
The only professional maker of these dangerous toys in Port
au Prince is Cardinal St. Juste, who bears this distinction mod-
estly. He does not operate a mechanically operated factory. He
makes everything but the basic elements in the production of
these miniature bombs. And he has but four aides.
His is a hazardous occupation, but he claims he loves it :
*After all,, he explains. 'there is nothing else to do I have
built my house [it is not yet finished and I shall go to the
States in March to get another hand......*
'Another hand?, Yes! He lost his hand in the manufacture
of one of his 'bombs.' It happened at Bolosse, on a bright June
afternoon, two years ago. He says he was holding the 'bomb.
in his left hand, packing it. He cut the fuse and POOF! His
eyes open wide as he Leils it: 'My hand she is gone.*
Such an accident might have convinced any other man that
fireworks are too dangerous. Not so St. Juste! He admits they
are dangerous but he continues to make them. He says he loves
it [because there is nothing else to do.']
In 1947 his home bad been blown up ... His world tumbled
about his ears [quite literally].
It happened on a still night, getting on toward morning,
when thieves broke intq his home. Not contented with clean-
ing out his portable possessions, including his money, they set
fire to the building. The store of fire-works, which the thieves
had overlooked, exploded, showering the sky with gaily coloured
stars, rending the night with one great ,SALUT-, and leaving,
beneath its clouds, six dead bodies.
St. Juste's mother-in-law, htf two sons, the cook, her so.i,
the watchman dead, all of them. St. Juste escaped by the
skin of his teeth. His wife, too, was spared.
St. Juste says that consideration for Public life and proper-
ty motivated his moving his workshop immediately afterwards.
Other sources claim that the firemen instigated, or even demand-
ed the change in location. Be that as it may, his quaint little
workshop is now 'on the hill*, though far from being -on the
Happy, exuberant, his moustached lips ever moving in a
smile, a song, or some tale of past adventure, St. Juste con-
tinued to ply his dangerous trade. The trade he had learned
twenty-seven years ago in Santo Domingo in the city of Ciu-
dad Trujillo. His tutor was Enrique B de Leon a master of the
art of fireworks making. He took Cardinal St. Juste with him
to Puerto Rico, after they had worked together for more than
two decades in Ciudad Trujillo, St. Juste spent twenty-fi'e
Years in all away from his native Port au Prince, twenty four
of them in Ciudad Trujillo.
He learned the suicidal art of making fireworks when he
was only twenty years old. and since then he has continuously
practiced it, regardless of personal risk.
St. Juste says that he sells his product at a reasonable rate.
The rockets with saluts he sells for 10 dollars per dozen: those
-. with stars go for 15 dollars, while fire-crackers cost 20 cents per
dozen. He says he could ask more no competition.
His profits should be quite high: he makes his own gun-povw-
der. And at Christmas time, at Carnival time, or even on the
Fourth of July -when' the American Embassy patronizes his
.firm, his product is extremely saleable.
But is it worth it? His mother is still alive, his wife and
five children are dependent on him, and what Is more they love
him. Is it fair to the little ones all between-the ages of th!r-
teen years aniff thirteen months to expose them to destitution,
to keep them qver fearful for their father's life? But then, as
S St. Juste says. 'There is nothing else for me in Port. I buil'

years later he yielded to the ad
venturous call of New York City
and settled down to the tedious
existence of day-time waiter and
night school student. In 1905 he
got on at Grand Central Ter-

here that he made the contacts
and developed the reputation
which resulted in his appoint-
