New York occurred at her New York

Mrs. Schermerhoi-n was a friend
to many children of Jacmel and the

More Beard Troubles For Pinney
(Continued from page 1)
Now in his 13th year of "on the
road" ex-Sydney, Australia resident
Pinney paid a brief and colorful
visit to Haiti in early February of
this year with intriguing stories
of the predicaments and strife that
his beloved facial adornment (a
lark and bushy beard) has unwitt-
ingly led him into.
Up to the time of his arrival in
Port-au-Prince, Pinney's beard had
caused the arrest of its owner on
numerous occasions in Cuba five
times in one day and had bought
about threats of indefinite terms of
imprisonment; but, undeterred the
widely travelled "Jack-of-a'll-trad-
es" from Australia arrived in this
country resplendently clad in his
'. 'Haitian Police added Pinney's
name to their charge sheet the first
night of his Haitian sojourn yes,
once again he could thank his beard
for having him arrested. On this
occasion he decided to walk from
the -Airport into the City; this was
not allowed he was told and at the
same time officials eyed his beard
with pondering suspicion. After a
long discussion involving the whys
and wherefores Pinney decided to
take a taxi and did so.
Then around 8pm he ventured
obut for a beer and what happened?
His beard proved a fatal attraction
and he was picked up for question-
-ing. Pinney stated at the time that
the Gendarmes treated him very
politely and after two or three
.hours he was released still with
i his beard, but no beer.
Peter Pininey has suffered many
STIR IN DOMINIC AN REPUBLIC
inconveniences through his addic-
tion to beard including being mis-
taken for a Barbudo, but he maint-
ains, "Beards have noble origins
and are traditional appurtences of
Kings and Zealots. But, from be-
ing long regarded as a symbol or
badge of rank of religious leaders,
prophets and men of royal blood.
there is now danger of their being
debased to the more unfortunate
role of a political epaulette."
When Pinney left Haiti, still with
an insatiable urge to travel, he
was last seen heading in the dir-
ection of the Dominican Republic
still with beard of course) and
from early February until this
week not one solitary word was
heard as to his whereabouts or -b
what fate may have befallen him. C
But this week a letter arrived at q
the "Sun" from no less a person- y
age than Petter Pinney safe, M
sound, and now a resident with his r
wife and child in Tortola, Virgin l
Islands, and still featuring a mas- t
sive expanse of beard. s
Needless to say Pinney did not
travel to his present address with-
out running into "beard trouble" d
and the following is set forth as
written in his letter and gives apt
and vivid description of the wand-
erer's latest adventures:
"I was in the Dominican Republ-
ic for about five days. On arrival
the Immigration people took me to
one side and issued straight ins-
tructions for the early removal of
my beard: the plane was still wait-
ing so I told them that I would
think it over.
"I found the City pleasant enough
and the folk friendly, though there
were few who cared to be seen on
the same side of the street in
company with a barbudo. The cools
picked me up (of course) for walk-
ing across a bridge, a sufficient
excuse for them, and for an hour
I let the game roll without trying
to convince anyone of anything inI
particular as I was curious to see
what would happen.
"Finally the Police contacted Im-
migration and when those boys
found out that I was still in fill
possession of my beard, after hav-
ing been in the country four days,
things rapidly began to happen. I
was taken to Immigration and ques-
tioned as to why the offending

"I declared that my beard had
ieen put in its proper place by
God, that as a member of the Aus-
ralian Orthodox Church I was re-
[uired to wear a beard at least one
'ear out of three in honor of the
Messiah, and if they wanted to re-
move my beard they would be ob-
iged to remove me with it. And
hen. I -added, what a delightful
story that would make for the for-
eign press for surely in the an-
nals of political crime there has
never been a case recorded of the
deportation of a harmless tourist
merely for the wearing of .a beard.
"To this they replied that either
I,. or the beard, or both would have
to go. As it ,was I was. overdue in
St. Thomas where Al (Pinney's
wife) was waiting for me, so I
chose to leave the next day and
can only presume that I would-

And so, Pinney has added anoth-

Aside from his vast knowledge
of surgery and his skill in the op-
erating theatre, Dr. Dorrian Venn's
personality and character have won
him many friends at the Schweitzer
I Hospital, a fact which can be sum-
med up by the statement of one
of the South African's fellow Hai-
tian surgeons, "apart from his per-
sonality he is an accomplished sur-
geon and he is a pleasure to work
with in the theatre."
Born in Pretoria, Capital of South
Africa, and of English descent, Dr.
Venn, now in his 40's. commenced
his medical training in Capetown
South Africa where he received his
primary degree. He then underwent
study both in England and Edin-
burgh and at the conclusion of four
years was made a fellow of the
Roypl College of Surgeons in Lond-
on and Edinburgh. .
For a time Dr. Venn practiced
in Ldndon and then returned, to set
up .practice in Johannesburg where
: .be specialized in Urology. It was
'*hile studying in England that Dr.
Venn received his thorough train-
ing in all -fields of surgery. This
he. explains by saying, "English
quatorial Africa to perform surgic-
al work in the jungle hospital. His
first trip was made in 1957 and
the second the following year, both
visits being of a month','s dulation.
It was while on his second visit
to the Equator based hospital that
Dr. Venn met the famous photo-
journalist Erica Anderson who was
visiting the hospital with the inten-
tion of making a film on its- acti-
vities. having just arrived from Wa-
rsaw. She talked to him about Dr.
Larimer Mellon and his hospital
in the Artibonite Valley of Haiti,
a hospital also named after Dr.
So impressed by Miss Anderson's
description of the Deschapelles hos-
pital was Dr. Venn that he wrote
to Dr. Mellon asking hinfi if there
were any staff vacancies. And so
in June of 1959 he arrived in Haiti
from Johannesburg and moved to
his new position. "I did not have
to leave South Africa because of
any racial prejudicies, but, I did
not agree with all principles nor
see eye to eye with some of the
policies in South Africa. Also I
don't like practicing in the City

being unable to identify his first
catch of one, bought a comprehen-
sive book on fish varieties. .His
top catch of Snook has to date been
an eight pounder but he says that
they go a lot heavier and he in-
tends to keep trying.
Next to fishing, yachting takes
up a large part of Dr. Venn's leis-
ure time and he recently acquired
a small sail boat from a resident
of .Gonaives which he intends to
alter to his own specifications.
While living in South Africa and
England the M.D. gained consider-
able sailing experience.

Venn was Senior Medical Officer of

tioned in Italy. On April the 23rd.

Mina Williams, also a native of
South Africa. He and Mrs. Williams
knew each other in South Africa
and last year Mrs. Williams visited
Haiti during the course of an ov-

here. The wedding ceremony is to

SUNDAY, APRIL 3rd., 1960
It is getting so that people are
.' taking vacations as much to
shop as to play golf, lounge in
the sun or just relax. And, rio
wonder when you consider the
savings to be had through Free
Port-Shopping. A couple who
normally might spend $500 on
Christmas gifts finds they can
buy 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-
S port shop in the world is La
k 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-
ches, Cashmeres, Handmade
bags, Gloves, Crystal, China,
S Silver, French Perfumes, Ca-
S meras, Liquours and a seem-
o,. ingly endless array of native
handicraft make La Belle
Creole more a shopping cen-
ter than a ordinary shop. Con-
.- sider that one can buy the
world's most famous Swiss
. watches Patek Philippe,
" Omega, Ulysse Nardin, Tissot,
;'- 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
be 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
1aa 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
innovations he has created is
the practice of sending a bot-
:' tie of free champagne to any
visitor to Haiti who happens
'to be celebrating a wedding
anniversary or to be on a
This year La Belle 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-
shop. The store will hold a
. two month long sale offering
even greater discounts on fa-
mous brand merchandise.
Everyday exclusive items will
be 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
SHaiti, richer, in a way, than
.when they went away.

The number of out patients treat-

valent to that treated last year.
But, a vast rise in expenses has
occurred in the utkeep of the hos-
pital for a number of reasons. The
number of X-Rays taken has in-
creased twofold and there is this
year a 50 per cent increase on
the number of operations; although
the number of hospital beds avail-
able remains the same, the numb-
er of patients increases all the
time with the result that the more

instance, the fishermen, in two
days, collected 1,200 pounds of fish.
Their previous production was 300

valent of his month's salary in two

mission was one cent a pound."
Mr. Routh of Canterbury, Engl-
and, was sent by FAO, at the re-
quest of the Haitian government, to
make a general survey of Haitian
fisheries and proposals for fishery
develQpment. He decided on two
main lines of approach. First, to
try and develop a large scale ind-
ustry for fish like tuna, to bring
animal protein into the people's
diets, and second, to help the small
fishermen improve production by
developing their fishing methods
and providing them with a market.
These aims were in accordance
with the Government's policy new

neighbor, was landing some 12 mil-

lion pounds a year of tuna, mostly
of bonito and albacore, Mr. Routh
thought that these fish could also
be found in the. waters around Hai-
ti, although the local fishermen
were not fishing for them. On Mr.
Routh's advice, the )Haitian. govern-
ment chartered a Cuban bonito boat
with a skelton crew and the fishery
officer went out and tested and
plotted the tuna grounds to be ex-
ploited. These grounds, not only
needed to have, tuna, but they also
had to have bait fish and small
harbors nearby. The harbors were
important for the bonito season

the hurricane season in Haiti.

NURSES GRADUATE FROM
POTE COLE'S SCHOOL
By Our Northern Reporter
Eighteen young girls received
their diploma and their assign-
ment, last Saturday March 26th in
Cap-Haitien after a seven-month
theoretical course and practical
training at "Ecole des Auxliaires
Infirmieres Hygienistes", operated
by Pole Cole in this town. Minister
of Public Health and Population,
Dr. Carlo Boulos and Officials of
the Point IV Program, came espe-
cially to the North for the occasion.
All local authorities, Pote Cole's
bosses and Employees and a large
audience of well-known Capois at-

crowded reception-room of the City

When HADO started its operation
in the Nqrth, with the objective to
rehabilitate economic and social
conditions in this area, the survey-
ors thought radical changes couldn't
be expected if, education, sanitation
and health improvement did not
rub out lamentable practices long
in use in the peasant's habits. As
pointed out by Major Robert Ba-
zile in his introductory speech; "to
achieve its objectives Pote Cole
has to work first on the Haitian
human being in order to raise his
standards and integrate him into
civilization's stream." To this view,
the Auxiliary Nurses Training
School was opened last August un-
der the direction of Miss Paulette
Debrosse, a competent and active
Nurse and graduate from a Cana-
dian University and Miss Claire
Martineau, Public Health Nursing
Consultant from SCISP.
Twenty-four students were need-
ed: more than one hundred condi-
dates applied to be enrolled Pnd

The role they are called to fulfill
in the rural communities is one of
the most challenging, as was em-
phasized by the Official speakers.
Auxiliary nurses ill face a great
variety of problems and their eff- |
orts will be to get a desirable in-
terplay between individual and en-
vironment that will contribute to
normal and impressive growth of
the Haitian peasantry. Their action
will be mostly preventive: help

and hygenic living standards. GRADUATES OF POTE COLE's Nursing School gather around one 4
