Dr. Brown Speaks On Hstorical

Novel At French Institute

On Tuesday, as the fourth
speaker in the current lecture sc-
ries offered by the French Insti-
tute, Dr. Ralph H. Brown, Di.
rector of the Haitian-American
Institute, gave a lecture on
*Chouannerie in the literature
of the Nineteenth Century :n
France.* This subject, which
was the topic of Dr. Brow-i's
dissertation, deals with the trans
formation of an historical inci-
dent into a literary theme.

Chouannerie is the name given
the counter-revolution in the
West of France -. from 1792- *o
1800. It 'consisted of armed re-
sistance to the new French Re-
public, and arose out- of dissatis-
faction at certain Governmental
measures. It was, then, another
incident in the long-struggle )- .
tween: the. individual and what
he calls the tyranny of the state;
and it was this- aspect of the
movement which caused it to bh
used. as a literary.theme. -

revolution itself, and from its al-
liance with the universal theme
of the struggle between the in.
dividual and the society in which
he lives; and that so long as this
interest continues, interest in
Chouannerie will continue too.
The lecture marks one of the
few times, certainly, when ,in
American has given a lecture in
French at the French Institute.
It is a tribute to Dr. Brown,
and to the friendly feeling be-
tween him and the Haitian -
American Institute on the one
hand, and M. Simon Lando and
the French Institute- on the

Colonel G. Price, wealthy ne-

made Jamaica his winter home,
is due to visit Haiti soon, the
'Haiti Sun- has been informed.
Mr. Price -is coming here to

months winter vacation here be-
fore he returns to his tome in

Haiti his home had it not been

Mr. Price is a millionaire. The
Los Angeles Tribune claims that
he receives the highest royalty
of any of the oilmen in his
home town of Hawkins, Texas.
A modest man, Mr. Price ad-

Personalities Of The Month
Rarely has Haiti entertained a for economic progress but our

more pleasant couple than the
tall slim Governor of Jamaica
and his cosmopolitan wife. \As
public figures it is not too sur-
prising that they swept through
the week's busy official schedule
With poise and aplumb. What
made them hosts of Haitian
friends was the keen personal
interest they showed in Our Re-
public and its people.
Sir Hugh Foot and Lady Foot
not only gave Port au Prince a
more thorough covering than q9
per cent of our visiting tourists
but launched another exploratory
trip into the provinces. By the
time that Sir Hugh was ready to
talk to the Press, he had gather-
ed a -sizeable fund of informa-
tion on the similarities and di-
vergences of the problems of u it
neighboring Caribbean islands.
And he showed an enthusiastic

intellectual achievements a -
well. What's more he wasn't
above cheering vainly for Haiti
footballers during their trounc-
ing by the Wackers.
Forty-six-year-old Sir Hugh
has spent approximately half
his life in the diplomatic service.
He was Governor of Cyprus and
Nigeria before taking his pre-
sent post in Kingston. As a mat-
ter of fact, his whole family is
studded with men in distin-
guished 'public service. His m

His elder brother was Under-Sec-
retary of Economic Warfare dur-
ing the last war and his younger
brother now an M.P. from De-
vonport. Even during their years
at Cambridge the Foot clan made
history. They were the only
four brothers ever to become suc
cessively Presidenrt of the St t.

Sir Hugh is an excellent swim-
mer and horseman a clue to
his trim figure which makes hi-n
look equally well in military uni-

Lady Foot, too, dresses with
distinction and drew admiring
glances wherever she went. H-r

The Leading American


Are Now On Sale At All


A Caterpillar Tool Bar can provide
new efficiency for your tillage work. It
helps you take advantage of the full power
of your Caterpillar track-type Tractor.
The tool bar is attached integrally with
the tractor and is a mounting bracket for
tillage implements.
Typical of the implements, which can
be attached to the tool bar are chisel
shanks, subsoilers, ditcher, spring shank
cultivators, disk ridger and listers. These
tools can be bolted to the bar by one man

and spaced as desired.
A forward push on the hydraulic con-
trol lever sinks the implements to the
desired depth. A pull on the lever raises
the implements to clear obstructions or
to permit moving from field to field. In
the "float" or neutral position the imple-
ments seek their own level. A manual
adjustment allows you to vary the angle
of tool penetration.
Let us show you more about this
versatile tool bar.

strange, he went on, that peo-
ple should be so misinformed
about voodoo when .their most
trusted source of information is
so flagrantly misguided.- *Voo-
ve doo is a religion, he declared.
and .defined religion as ca be-
9K- lief binding the spiritual nature
to of man to a supernatural being
his involving a spirit of inde-
pendence and responsibility to-
gether with the. practices which
flow from such a belief.- Hei
claimed Voodoo conformed to
every point of. the above defini-
tion. He recited a passage from
Homer's Odyssey which des-
cribes the sacrifices and libations
to the dead; in this he found
-the prehistoric and universal
roots, of the present cult re-
marking that the present voodoo
ceremonies were almost identical
.to the 9000 B.C. Romanr counToIr-
part. Ruth Benedict's "Patterns
of Culture, dealing with the
early American Indians describes
their beliefs and rites as cDoc
would describe those of the Voo0-
d'oo practices today. National

logy of the Sungumas of Tibet
could almost have been written
by Doc Reser on' Voodoo peo-
ples. He also compared the m.'s
tic rites of Siberian Shamanismn
and East Indian religion with h's
Haitian protege Voodoo.
S The present form of the reli-
gion, he told his-engrossed a.i-
dience, sprung from Africa,
where it still is practised : the
various tribes brought their be-
liefs with them which have now
developed into two main forms,
Rada and Petro, with ancillary
Congo, Ibo and Moundongue con.

His interest began when he
was studying religious and para-
normal psychology: an old wo-
man at his first voodoo cere-
mony told him what his wife
and children were doing in the
-a U.S. and described the house
they were living in. He. had -:.t
seen the house, but checking.
with his wife, verified the ,main
bo's description in every de-
tail. She also forecast his de-
parture from Port-au-Paix to the
aBig Government'. [Port an
Prince] where he should do a
great work for humanity for
many years. He was transferred
to care for hundreds of Insa'ne.
There was another thrilling
episode of prophetic realisation
experienced by the Doe. 'While
visiting a neighbour near Pont
Beudet*, he related, "a woman
was possessed of one of the Ho-
goun family. She spoke to three

persons: 'Look ... [holding up
his hands, fingers splayed, Doe's
eyes opened wide] ten ... ten .
In ten days this will happen to
you, and you, and you ... Titine,
you are going to have a fight
with one of your family because
of your ijardin.; Justin, Jus-
tin you are going to get a letter
and will have to go to court ;
Tite, you are going to get hurt
and spend ten days in bed- ...
Doc paused, his audience sighed
appreciatively. *Ten days later,
I visited the neighbourhood. 't
was morning, and by the time I
Was halfway from the house,
there was screaming and commo-
tion ... Titine's father had left
her a garden in which she'plant-
ed guinea grass as fodder for h.r
animals. The careful -charbon-
nier, fenced it in with barbed
wvire, but her brother had dis-
pensed with this difficulty with
a pair of wire cutters, and turn-
ed his beasts to feed. She was
righteously indignant. Later
the same day, a taxi driver"
brought a letter for Justin, sum-
moning him to appear in court
to settle .his year old debt of 175
gourdes.* Winding up the scene,
he continued, eSure enough, l't-
er on the same day, Tite slipped
on a wet path and injured hpr
.Spine. She spent ten days in
bed. This could not have been
coincidence., ,.

Them ,Zombies,,
Perhaps the most interesting
of the 'priest's, experiences was
his care of a zombie tor two
years. He had proved that the
stories about giving zombies salt
is abloff.= He had given one salt
and she had not re-acted in the
manner expected. She failed to
return to the cemetery, or to
consciousness. The people who
make zombies, he said, are no
more sinister than the drug ped-
dlers of his homeland, wno
make worse creatures out (f
school children. He described
the particular zombie of his ex-
perience as a woman who, found
naked and paralyzed on the Pe-
tit Goave road spent two years
at the Pont Beudet asylum,
when she. could use only her
arms and her eyes. She would
tear any clothing offered to her,
crying ",It's not mine.* One
morning, an agitated nurse told
him the zombie had been danc.
ing all night. He put her under
strict surveillance. Then one
night the Doc awoke for no ap-
parent reason, and as if impelled
went to her bedside. She was be-
tween two nurses. Pointing at
him she cried Gade, moin te dr't

Joseph Escalera suffers from what psychiatrists call "illusions
of grandeur*, and this malady makes him imagine himself own-
er of all the staircases in the Republic, as his name is Escale:a
owner also of every ship on the ocean, a distinction confer-
'red by the -cal- part of his name; finally risen from riches to
power he claims the throne of La Gonave,
It all started about three years ago, when he returned from
his job at the Post Office with the news that the salary there
wan criminally low, especially for a man of his high station in
life, adding that the Government of the Republic was in th-e
wrong hands, concluding that his hands were the right one-s.
His two children were awe struck by this strange news, and the
widower enlightened them further on the details of his claim
to power : the name *Escaleras was one of power and wealth,
but unfortunately wicked men had despoiled him of his inheri-
tance. He proceeded fortright to take action against these men,
spreading the -truth, about the ownership of the ships, stairs,
and of -Gonave,, but, although people listened they would offer
no tangible aid.
So he set off on a one-man expedition for the invasioQ .,f
La Gonave, expecting no doubt that the population would rise
in spontaneous support of their lawful sovereign. He was diz-
appointed. His reception was at best lukewarm, and he wis
:4 repulsed by overwhelming police troops.
Undaunted by this and similar reverses, Escalera wrote to
the Presidents of Haiti, France, and the United States, pnd '.o
the sovereigns of the world : "Help me right a great wrongs,
he pleaded, appealing to their sense of justice. But the idealism
that prompted the Crusades died with the Middle Ages: no voice
answered his plea, no arm stretched forth in aid. Still Escaleia
fights his lost battle.
As befits so imperial a personality he voices very definite
opinions on matters of importance to the State: on the visit .'f
the Governor of Jamaica to Haiti, he asked some relevant and
poignant questions.
-How can Jamaicans subject themselves to a man by the
name of Foot?* he wanted to know. *Foot is a member of the
-body, and the body has a hundred and fifty two members. How
'can people allow themselves to be trodden on by a foot. Your
S money is false for you are not free.,
Half Cuban, half Haitian, Escalera cannot understand the
.mentality of a colonial people: he can sympathise with rulers
but not with the ruled.
He went on to.enlarge on his economic viewpoint, designat-
ing Haitian currency as also false -because- he elucidates, "the
Currency is issued in the name of the Republique d'Haiti. I
know Mr. Republic well, and he did not sign it., His reason-
ing cannot be questioned.
', The eager little man talks too fast to allow questions from
his audience, and his khaki clad figure paces up and down :cQ
be emphasises a well made point with grandiose if sometimes
not too dignified gestures, The exiled 'king of La Gonave,
now has for his domain the Bois Verna, where with his friends
Mario*Montreuil and Armyl Ferrer, he often discusses the poli-
tical situation in his kingdom, dwelling on his unfortunate lot.

town jam sessions before he was
fifteen when he attained the
rank of leader of his own or-
questa Tipica., composed of vio--
lin, flute, timbal, guira and piano
and started playing in homes
and dancing -cabaretes.a At i3
he married the last of his child-

daughter Omelia, who be said, is,

to seek fame and fortune. In ni'-
time he was on the road. From
an Orquesta Tipica, he worked
with Paulina Alvarez, then the
Casino de la Playa with the famr
ous singer Cascarita. With the
Casino he toured Puerto Rico,
Venez,ueja, and Aruba, where in
1943 at the end of a guaracha
he added four movements the
first cries of the infant mambo.
In 1948, he left the Casino and
went to Mexico, forming hi-, own
orchestra, and experimenting
with Cuban music. The outcome
was mambq. In 19.53 he we.t
on a missionary journey through
out America, and everywhere the
gospel of mambo wj. enthusi-ij-
tically accepted. In Lima, Peru.
the music got so hot *that the
Cardinal is reported to have ex.
communicated Perez Pradc andl
all those who would attend hil
* ball. Only two hundred and
fifty thousand people were e,:-
communicated for attending, he
reports. It seems the people
shook too much to the music.
Prado denies being excommuli
icated and opens a floral shirt
to reveal three beautiful gold
holy medals which are all ble;-
ed. He also laughs at the story
that in Mexico he was famed
for falling asleep in the middle
of a guaracha and, when piod--
ded awake, would commence a
violent mambo.

His first Mambo was christen-
ed -Jose.. The mambo he says
is .a Cuban guaracha of ultimate
African origin but having a trum
pet saxophone combination
that makes it different.

to put iron guard rails and a

than 2,000 dollars. He has spok-
