THE MISSING LINK
IN HAITI'S ROAD NET WORK
..A glance at the map of Haiti discloses that the Northwest
. .oner of Haiti is not encircled by road. The road from Port.
de-Paix to Jean-Rabel is fn only for a jeep and animals..
From Jean-Rabel to Mole St. Nicolas, the going is good over
-hard lava rock. Up to Bombardopolis from the Mole is a
tough scenic route started by Father Laroche and completed
by the Public Works Department The practical.minded Ca-
tholic Priest cares for this road and helps to keep it under
repair. Father Laroche who obviously has a passion for road
building started some time ago a road in the direction of
Baie de Henne, a port on the South Coast of the Northwest
Peninsula, but the Public Works has to complete it.
The road up from Gonaives, a regular bed of thorns, was
continued two years ago from Anse-A-Rouge to Baie de Hen-
ne by the USOM gWoik.For-Foodb Program.
As. a result of a bad, dead-end road, the Northwest has
about as much four-wheel traffic as the moon. Business is
Carried on by the sea, a costly process in the best of seasons.
Many observers in this area feel if the South and North
were linked by road this would stimulate trading in that

The important needs of the Northwest which is suffering
from severe drought is seen today as (1) Medical Supplies

SHADOW OF THE CARIBBEAN LEGION
(Continued from page 1)
the Dominiran Republic. And both of them fought with out-
standing heroism and distinction alongside Figueres and his.
One of the outstanding feats of the Costa Rican Civil War
was the taking of Puerto Limon by an airborne force under
Horacio Ornes. There were about 62 men participating in this.
successful operation, which was really a model of planning and
split-second execution. The group was called the Caribbean
Following the termination of hostilities, with the smashing
victory of the Figueres forces, many hundreds of political exiles
from the various Caribbean countries assembled in Costa Rica
to form an army for the purpose of overthrowing the Dictators. I
Somoza of Nicaragua and Trujillo of'the Dominican Republic.
This organization, still called the Army of Liberation of the.
Caribbean, began to snowball in size and it-was then that Jerry
Hannifin of Time Magazine, who had covered the fighting in.
Costa Rica, gave it the name of the Caribbean Legion.
The U. S. State Department liked the Caribbean Legion not
at all and the pressure it brought to bear on Figueres and
others concerned with the project resulted in the Legion going
underground and practically disbanding. But not quite...
At the time of the Figueres victory in Costa Rioa in May of
1948, the Caribbean revolutionary movement controlled the
most strategic bases of that area. There was President Romulo,
Gallegos and Romulo Betancourt in oil-rich Venezuela, Presi-
dent Jose Figueres in Costa Rica, President Juan Arevalo in
Guatemala and President Carlos Prio in Cuba.
If you take a look at the map, you will see that without out-.
side interference, such an alliance was bound to dominate the
Caribbean. The first to fall, however, was Gallegos in Vene-
zuela, who was overthrown by-a military coup on Nov. 24, 1948.
President Arevalo turned over the government to Col. Arbenz-
Figueres lived up to his given wgrd and turned over to Ulate
the 'presidential seat he had won for the noted Costa Rican
journalist; and then President Carlos Prio was overthrown by
the military coup of General Fulgencio Batista on March 10,
For a time things looked bad for the Caribbean Revolution-
ary Movement. Then a few weeks ago, Romulo Betancourt was
elected President of Venezuela by a substantial majority. Jose
Figures is undoubtedly the strongest figure in Costa Rica,
and although I am not authorized .to speak for Dr Fidel Castro,
I would say-that he is very friendly to the Caribbeangrevo-
What is the Caribbean Legion? Is it fact or fantasma? Well,.
the mane to ask about that is Jerry Hannifin of the Washington
Bureau of Time Magazine. It was Jerry who created the Legion -
and none is better situated to express an opinion than he.
Jerry created the name and perhaps that's all that it is. But
there are some men who do not sleep well o'nights, because they
believe that the Caribbean Legion is a terrifying reality and
growing more powerful and ominous by the minute.
The thing to do is to ask Jerry Hannifin.
A reception and -buffet followed
the meeting with Attorney Gerard
Raoul Rouzier making a brief
speech asking those present to
give their full support to the
work of the Associatino, and those
,present on toasted their own
close collaboration .in carrying out
the goal of bringing "relief and
aid to the famine victims.
