which tastes to me a little like

heard that we wanted to see the
pre-Columbian figurines with
which the island is liberally
sprinkled, and which the natives
call -Ti Zeaux La Te', he
brought out and offered us a
gift of his entire collection.
Meanwhile he had sent a rider
back to Point A Oiseaux,'o noti-

be embarking from Cayonne,
and he dispatched his well-edu-

as guide on the precipitate de,.
On the way down, an incident
occurred so wonderfully typical
of Haiti that I cannot refrain
from including it. My horse's
left rear hoof became caught be-
tween two twisted mango roots
in such a way that the more I
tried to extricate it the deeper
it became lodged. Suddenly out
of the jungle stepped a half-
naked peasant, and without a
word began hacking at the roots
with his machette. The horse
stepped free but when I turned
around to thank the peasant -
he had disappeared.
Colonel Paret had warned us
not to leave Tortue later than
one o'clock. He was right.

looked like the landscape be-

Tourists Aboard ((Olympia))
Enlightened By Ship's Newspaper
The -Olympia- ended her sec- clamour for attention 'and bar-
ond visit on Sunday afternoon
- a little late because of diffi-
culty getting the tourists away
from Mardi Gras celebrations.
While in Port, Nelson Lans-
dale, ship's editor dropped in to
pay us a visit enroute to do a
reportage of the Museum of Eth
nology, leaving a couple copies

is the sole beacon lighting 'the
way for the ship's passengers --
pointing out places of interest in
ports of call briefing the tour-
ists on what to do ashore, and
what to see.
Below is an excerpt about
taxi drivers :
In nearly every port, visitors
will find independent. automo-
biles waiting with drivers who
gain for business, forcing each
other's prices down by repeated
price cutting. The patient travel-
ler who knows how to haggle
may often secure cars at prices
below the usual scale.
Whether he will get the drive
he. contracted for is something
else again. It's clear that as a
visitor to a strange land, his po-
sition is weak. If the chauffeur
does not follow the route agreed
on or omits places of interest.
the passenger may not know of
the omission in time to correct
it. Occasionally when the pas-
senger attempts to insist on re-
duced speed or a different route,
real or pretended ignorance of
English on the drivers' part, in
place, where foreign languages
are spoken always means an
easy victory for the home team.
We don't use these sugges-
.ions as an advertisement, or as

arguments for the shore excur-
sions we have arranged. Our
only reason for bringing them
up Is that if some passengers
return to the ship with an ac-
count of a drive which cost less
than one we have arranged, the
-reason for the difference will be
clear to everybody.
If you know the country and
the language, you will of course
go off on your own; if you do
not we feel sure you will get
more for your money on the
trip we have arranged.,
By this you can see that Mr.
Lansdale is deeply distrustful of
taxi drivers especially foreign
ones. But his opinion of our
scenery is better. His comments
on Haiti are favourable, our
stores get some good publicity.
"Shoppers for gifts and souven-
irs are in their element in Haiti-
he quotes Sydney Clark.
About our Art Centre he is
enthusiastic. He says &a vi itnor
with enough sense to ignore a
native chauffeur who announces'
that the establishment burned
down last night, will find his
persistence well rewarded espe-
cially if he has confidence
enough in his own taste to pick
up a boldly coloured native pri-
mitive oll or water colour.- Bit
even here his suspicion of chauf-
feurs persists.. ,

tical, as may be deduced by this

Not long ago it was commonplace for an
isolated town or work site to be denied
the comforts and conveniences of elec-
tricity. Once off the main transmission
lines they were relegated to a life of oil
lamps, hand labor and dried foods.
Now, however, many isolated com-
munities have fresh foods, electrical appli-
ances, power tools, radios and adequate
lighting. They have gained these benefits
through the use of Caterpillar Diesel
These engines drive an electric gener- '
ator and they run on low-cost Diesel fuel;
They are easy to operate because they
regulate themselves. If desired they can
be connected through a switchboard.
Don't be denied the comforts and con-

DRIVING BEEF ON THE
HOOF FROM AUX CAYES
The beef that, feeds the epicu-
res of Port au Prince at thirty
cents a pound, is driven in from
Aux Cayes, Jacme; and other
far off towns in the cattle area
by ragged drovers who walk the
fifty miles from Jacmel iR two
days and twice as far from Aux
Cayes in four or five, earning
no more than three gourdes -
60 cents for a hundred and
Augustin Saintil. a bearded,
grizzled man who says he is
ien years old and has been driv-
ing the trail for thirty years,
sleeps beside his tethered herd
when the heat of the sun be-
comes too severe for the beasts.
Each of the five animals bears
on its back a drum containing
water for its own consumption,
and the drover's, from which it
is watered twrce every day. On
the journey the beasts live on
grass and herbs which they crop
by the side of the road, as they
plod through the dust driven by
the whiplash. Augustin says he
has become quite accustomed
to the dust and squints red eyes
instinctively. -His bare feet are
nmsshapen and horny, never hav
ing been confined to shoes, and
his face is a maze of crossing
WVhen the -steaks, are safely
delivered at the abattoir, the
drover may stay in Port au
Prince until he has squandered
the three gourdes he has earn-
ed. Augustin spends these days
of leisure in the comparative
luxury of a hut near the air-
field, which ITe boasts he built
himself. Then returning .a pied-
to Au)x Cayes he takes charge
of another of the herds Nafri-
que buys around Aux Cayes,
and starts the trail to Port au
Prince again. When business is
slow he takes an enforced .holi-
day.* Then, he is not paid, so
lives off the patch of cultiva-
tion before his home.
He prefers his present occupa-
tion to working for *Nafriq.iue
m the cane fields as he did for
several years before being pro-
moted to trail driver.
