ODVAfl Intensifies Program...
LARGE SCALE EXPORTING UNDERWAY -
As it is already known, ODVA
has decided this year to intensify
its program of agricultural produc-
tion, not only in order to supply
the local market, but also and es-
pecially for the purpose of 'under-
taking exports of Haitian produce
on a large scale.
This first year is a year of ex-
perimentation, but the success al-
ready met is very encouraging, for
actually, on the local market ODVA
is the most important supplier of
rice, tomatoes, pepper, rice, flour.
For the first time in its business
intercourse with the United States
of America Haiti has exported ve-
getables in a quantity which was
never reached yet for this kind of
Since some months, the local
market is supplied by ODVA with
approximately 6,000 pounds of rice
Furthermore since harvest has
begun -a little less than three
weeks- around 130,000 pounds of
tomatoes have been sold by ODVA,
of which quantity 90 per cent were
exported directly to the United
States of America. Only 13,0001b.
have been delivered to the local
market. The forecast for the act.
ual tomato crop is of more than
three millions pounds: that w Ill
be the most important harvest in
the Haitian agricultural history.
Pepper and Rice flour produced
by ODVA meet an equal success
in the local market. To these pro-
duces will be soon added onions,
cucumbers, and corns. This latter
produce will be-grown on a very

NEW BUILDINGS THIS MONTH
.. Several new 'buildings commanding attractive sites and
presenting "new look" facades are scheduled for complet-
ion in Port-au-Prince this week, providing a pleasurable
shot in the arm to the planification of the Capital City.
Ranging from pretentious two-storey buildings such as
the new U.S. Embassy structure-to the "oasis" appearance
:provided by the extensive "Texaco" parking lot, gas station
and rest rooms, the new group qf buildings provide welcome
t~- iJdditions to the City's gradually "turning pleasant" sky-

It is to be 'hoped that the- progressive air activating

In the past the question of the roles played by the divers-

A, Walls has come. to the fore and 'many 'are those who have
suggested that the -inmates 'be shifted "en masse" to a new

This suggestion is both feasible for the prisoners them-
selves and the National economy. 'With the advent of this
"clean-up" prisoners moved to La Gonave could well be occ-
upied in varieing occupations on a prison farm.
R -umours circulate continuously on moral behaviour with-
in the prison walls. It is weH known that common criminals
mix freely with the young which is neither conductive
'to prisoner rehabilitation or 'morality. It 'has 'been suggested

Economically a prison farm is also desirable. Farming
ativities 'by some 700 hundred odd prisoners would certain-
1?y alleviate to a big extent the strain on Government funds

; inent subject which deserves deliberated consideration by
-those in official circles concerned.

EXTENSIVE PROGRAM OF ECONOMIC RENEWAL UNDERWAY
By A CAPOIS
Pote Cole an organization that
many people from all parts of the
Republic have been inquiring about
in recent weeks. Po:e Cole is a
creole expression meaning let us
work together,, hand in hand or
shoulder close to shoulder and apt-

bringing the norther sector of Haiti

Officially stared in February of
1959, on a cooperative l"asis bet-
ween both American and Haitian
Governments, Pote Cole -Haytian

jects in the north in connection
with agriculture, sanitation, public
health, raising and improvement of
livestock and education.

by different Haitian Governm e n t
Services and are realized by Pote

people are accustomed to such a
diversified and large "project.
Selection and training of the right
employees takes a considerable
amount of time too but this in -it-

is evident that both American and

So magic became the Majahara's
life and his continued mastery of
the art has kept him in demand
for 53 years. Much of his success,
he claims, is owed to the fact that
he never uses "'props" the cumb-

awe their audience.

have confirmed that such a propo-

Marine Colonel Robert D. Heini

In his request, Heinl had pointed
out that one of Haiti's greatest

*But, we of this paper are 100
percent in favor also of the "bur-

cess of slaughtering.
This slaughtering process should
have been abolished long ago in
a country which is in the midst of
a great tourist movement.
"We hope that the butchers will
be the first to admit that the old
ways were revolting."
In addition to the above state-
ment, Le Matin earlier this week
posed the problem of the sharp
rise in prices for slaughtering by
stating, "The butchers' of Petion-
ville are complaining that .the new
slaughterhouse at Damin is charg-
Ing 15 dollars to kill a sheep and
10 dollars to kill a pig, 'while the
price for killing a goat or sheep
now stands at five dollars.

to kill a goat which is double the
animal market purchase price."
