ODVA Still Working-Loan Frozen
TOMATOES TAKING PRECEDENCE IN VEGETABLE GARDENS
(Contnued from page 1)
The $4,300,000 loaned by: the Dev-
elopment Loan Fund and which is
currently nullified was for the con-
tinuation and completion of irriga-
tion and drainage of the remain-
ing 25-30 thousand acres ih the Ar-
tibonite area; the $1,000,000 annual
allotment from Haiti's budget which
still remains unaffected is for OD-
VA's operational activities and gen-
eral upkeep .of the Peligre Dam
and canals etc., and HADO's loan of
half-a-million dollars which has not
been suspended is divided into sums
consisting of $50,000 for overhead
and essentials to the economic dev-
elopment of the Valley, $100,000 for
Srice storage and mill, $75,000 for
a feed mill, $40,000 for vegetable
production and the erection of a
S canning and packing plant, $60,000
for rehabilitation, set forth as a
pre-requisite to rapid development,
35,000 for livestock and poultry,
S $40,000 allowed to .farm machinery
and finally $100,000 for agricultural
extension. Most of this half-a-mill-
S- ion dollar loan has already been
S used up.

when gathered will make way for
a crop of corn which' is hoped to

CAo'flN, ASKINGG ELANT
At Pont Sonde. a vegetable, pack-
ing and canink plant iD nearing
the last stages of completion. Con-
sisting of a large packing andm carn- "'
rnng plant and a scheduled, cooling
room, the plant is situated close
to the main road to provide a han-
dy and economic outlet for produce "
handled at the plant. Canning and,
packing equipment have been pur- -
chased by ODVA for the plant and
officials are awaiting the schedul-''.
ed arrival, of Bob Kirwan to
fit the equipment. Dealing
as a start mainly with tomatoes,-
the plant is expected to have a
handling capacity for 300 acres of'
tomatoes (9,060,0001bs) per season.
The tomatoes products produced
at the plant are expected to be
mostly those of the paste (which
will, according to officials, cut down
the large HAitian import annually
of the product) puree and catchup
varieties. ODVA states that at a
later date the plant may move on
expanding to other vegetable can-
ning and in this direction a refridg-
eration and cooling room are being
erected next to the plant.
Cans for the plants products are
to be imported from the U.S. in a
broken down state and will be as-
sembled by workers at the plant.
ODVA is hoping to acquire and
train a Haitian to look after ,the
running of the Vegetable plant.
Also near the plant ODVA has
planned an abattoir for the slaught-
ering and processing of cattle and
livestock which one official laid

33 horses were entered in- the
Gran d National, therefore, there
were' 33 bulletins at the drawing
which were numbered and stamp-
ed with -the name of each of the
horses; these weie placed in one
drum while in a larger drum were
placed the stubs of all the tickets
sold. Two nurses -were in charge
of the drawing.
Out of the 33' numbers picked 5
were sold in Haiti. Four of these
holders will receive consolation
prizes ranging from 25 dollars up
while the lucky fifth, a resident of
St. Marc and believed to be a'
young man, drew the horse picked
as favorite for the race. The, all-
important cable will shortly put
him either out of or further into
his present nervous state.
