"C'est Christophe Colomb qui fit

'a little clearert.a man by the name
of Columbus discovered H a it i on
this particular morning in 1492, fif-
ty-six days after he stumbled across
America while searching for a short
cut to the East. He was coasting
back to Spain when, from the prow
of the Santa Maria he spotted the
jagged northwest arm of' Haiti. The
stunningly picturesque panorafna
emerging from the Atlantic suggest-
ed that Columbus had found an isl-
and that might work out well as a
tourist spot for the 15th. Century
Europe. Anyway, Columbus, since
he was in the employ of Queen Isa-
bella of Spain, decided on the spot
to christeh his 'discovery La Isla
Espanola. In about a week, h6 and
the 'boys debarked at Moustique
Bay and perhaps spent a day or
two acquiring a suntan in the scar-
ing, Haitian sun. The discovery of
Haiti was as simple as that, a jort
of windfall for an explorer who had
already immortalised himself by
December 25, 1492 was not .a mer-
ry day for Columbus. One story has
it that he was asleep aboard the
Santa Maria when a sloppy helm-
man let the flagship crash into the
treacherous coral reefs in the vici-
nity of Acul Bay. Columbus was
awakened. Accompanied by his
crew, he splashed ashore, -swapped
greetings with the Arawak Indians,
and just to be on the safe side,
threw up a fortress with the mater-
ial salvaged from the wrecked hull.
About a month later. Columbus
left for Spain aboard either the
Pinta of the Nina but, he left be-

This handful of tourists represented
the first European settlement in the
New World, a colony), that unfortun-
ately .was not around to celebrate
its first anniversary. By the timnw
Columbus returned about a year
later, the colonists had been wiped
out. The fortress itself was in ruins.
The Spanish then arrived in force;
they stayed. It wasn't long, howev-
er, before the Frehch and English
got excited about the-island and
as benifitted major powers nterest-
ed in the same goal they went to
war. The upshot was the Treaty
of Riswick of 1696, an accord 'which

displayed in the entryway' and was
examined by interest by gallery-
goers, including Minister of Educa-

Commencing its fourth year of
existence Galerie Brochette has arh-

include a pati6 with fountain, exhib-

venture to provide Port-au-Prince
with a variety of galleries: Luckner

bartered for paintings.

BONHOMME INVITES U.S. TO ESTABLISH

Arthur Bonhomme, majority lead-
e : of the Haitian Senate and presid-
S ent' of the Commission of Foreign
Re.ations,. invited the United States
Sto establish a naval base in Haiti,
if Cuba makes the U.S. abandon the
base it now possesses at Guantana-
an accordingc to a United Press In-
ternation dispatch from Chicago
'.- which was reprinted here in the
Daily, press this week.
Bonhomme according to the dis-
:. patch made the declarations during

; brs Evangelistes" had recommend-
?ed to President Dr Francois Duva-
S lier t invite the U.S. to establish
a 'base on Haitian territory.

as a brother in the Society of Na-

democracy in the free world.
"If the protection of the United
States and all it stands for rests
on a base in the Caribbean, and if
Cuba refuses to respect the 'treaty
it signed with the United States in
1903 I-believe the Republic of Haiti
should be the first to invite the U.S.
Navy to establish a .base on our
friendly territory and waters.

SUNDAY, DEC. 6TH, -1959
0.-t. .getting so that people are
'ta g 't vacations as much to.
h.p. as to play golf, lounge in
-thesun or just relax. And, no
S- wonder when, you consider the
-. savingss to be had.through Free
' Port-Shopping. A couple who
normally miight spend $500 on
Christmas gifts finds they can
b uy the same gifts, in free-port
shops, at savings up to 60% of.
U. S. prices. So, for the $250
or so they save, they enjoy a
wonderful vacation in Haiti.
Perhaps the most famous free-
port shop in the world is La
Belle Creole. located in the
heart .of fascinating Port-au-
Prince, Haiti. Here one can
find a veritable wonderland
full of the world's most de-
sired merchandise, Swiss wat-
c.hes, C;shmeres, Handmade
bags, Gloves, Crystal, China,
Silver, French Perfunies, Ca-
m eras, Liquours and a seem-
ingly endless array of -native
handicraft make La Belle
Creole more a shopping cen-
ter than a ordinary shop. Con-
aider that one can buy the
orld's most famous Swiss
watches "Patek Philippe,
Omega, Ulysse Nardin, Tissot,
S. Nivada, Jaeger Le Coultre,
Borel, Juvenia, Audemars Pi-
. guet-at discounts of 50% of
the U. S. advertised prices,
- and it is no wonder that La
'Belle Creole is famous. The
same applies in China, Crystal
,.and the rest every fine brand
is represented. Before buying
an expensive watch it might
l. e well worth your time to
consider a trip to Haiti.
Al Noustas,, President of La
Belle Creole and Haiti's most
vigorous promoter of tourism,
is perhaps another reason for
the surge ,in .popularity of
free-port shopping. His ad-
vertising in support of travel-
-shopping has appeared in most
leading U. S. publications and
.he continues to pursue a po-
licy of cooperating with tra-
-vel agents in their various
promotions to increase tou-.
rism. Among the most popular
innqvations he has- created is
the practice of sending a bot-
tle of free champagne to any
visitor to Haiti who happens
*to be celebrating a wedding
anniversary or to be on a-
his year La. Bellie Creole is
itself celebrating a 10th an-
niversary and Al Noustas has
doubled his efforts to make
the_ world conscious of the
advantages of traveling-to-
shqp. The store will hold a
twp month long sale offering
S even greater discounts on fa-
mous brand merchandise.
Everyday exclusive items will
Ub selected to be sold to visi-
tors at prices that will as,
tound them. No doubt thou-
sands of tourists this year will
come home from vacations in
Haiti, richer, in a way, than
.when they went away.

While visiting with his wife her

the Haitians, decided that was

years both husband and wife con-
tinued working in the, States, she in
the Haitian Consulate in New York.
Then, in 1948, they rented a villa
in the hills, above Port-au-Prince,
and with Laurda's savings opened a
dress shop, which they called simp-
ly Aux Belles Choses- (Beautiful
Things). They were prospering when
a nervous student driver crashed
into the building, knocking over a
structural support, bringing down
the roof and wrecking $25,000 worth
of belles choses. The settlement,

came to $800. '^So;' "says Coster,

wandered in unbftlden one night and
reappeared thereafter whenever the
