|p'STORMS NOT ONLY CAUSE OF SHIPPING TRAGEDIES
'..A total of 17 Haitian lives have been lost in the short period of the
j..-iPst two weeks_ through the sinking of 2 Haitian coastal sailing vessels:
.it^one of-these ships was caught in a storm: and sank off "Grosse Pointe"
.the- other tragic loss of 9 souls occurring when the "Express" swamped
herself and sank in Port-au-Prince Bay and in front of anyone who
happened to be standing on the foreshore.
g iThne first ship to go down, the J.C.D., did so on: March 22nd, taking
-i her 8 passengers and crew. The disaster came in the midst of a
violent. storm and thus the incident can be construed in part to be an
tact of nature's fury.

Cite Dumarsais Estame, No. 37 -
A copy of the "Haiti Sun" from
March 20, Ip60, has been sent to
me, and -I was very happy -to find
an article on the Creole translation
of the New Testament and Raym-
ond Joseph's participation in. that
translation. It was with some dis-
may that I found that no mention
was made of the American Bible
Society which .is Mr. Joseph's emp-'
loyer nor of the fact that the Aier-
ican Bible Society is publishing
this translation and distributing it
from its office 'at 187 Rue dii Cen-
tre in Port-au-Prince.
I understand fro fiMr. Joseph
that be has.been in touch with-you
concerning this omission, 'and I
would not bring it up except for
something -which I personally feel
is 'even more serious.
I realize that the article was a
feature article oi Mt Joseph him-
self and this is splendid, but im-
plication of the article subordinates
the role, in translation played by
Rpev. Marco Depestre and iRev. A--
,ain R6courL They are. mentioned(

ship of the Methodist mission in
Haiti and under the leadership 6f
Rev. Ormonde McConnell. Progress
was slow,' and from a period of
about .1954 on, Rev. Marco Depes-
.tre gave as much time as he could
spare from, his parish duties aind
other responsibilities to translation
work. It was because of his heavy
load, -his poor health for a time,
and other such factors that Mr.
Joseph and Rev. Mr. Rocourt were
invited into the project and the New
.Testament was portioned between
them. In this way, each is equally
responsible for certain segments of
the New Testament.
More recently, -Mr Joseph has
been working, as a Bible Society
employee, doing much of the proof-
reading, checking and other import-
ant detailed work in connection with
this publication. He is also prepar-
ing the ground for a compete sur-
vey of the work, a tightening and
thorough editing which will be done
under the guidance of ,a committee
representing the various areas of
Haiti as was mentioned in the art-
icle. His role is an important one

dare take one of -these --slips- out to sea?" As if the complete absense
of life saving equipment is not enough all the coastal shipping makes
popular -pastime of flagrantly overloading ships with ill balanced or
unmethodically stocked cargo; which provides ample reason for a ship
"giving 'up" and sinking without any aid from a storm. There appears
to be no supervised loading restrictions in force to ensure safety margins
by these vessels.
There is no doubt that this form of coastal shipping is essential,
especially when bad roads prevent the circulation of necessary produce
and goods, but it is not essential that with borrifyingt regularity these
ships are unable to carry their burdens and sink to the bottom of
Haitian waters taking lives with them. As things currently stand shipp-
ing assuredly takes more loss of life than do road accidents and fatalities.
Maritime codes' are something to which shipping in practically all
ports of the world are obliged to comply with, but, there is no evidence
of any such codes in Haiti. If the situation is allowed to stand at its
present level then ships will continue to sink and in time Haiti's coastal
merchant navy will stand at nought a deplorable standard \vhen it
is considered the number of lives involved simply because the simplest
of surveilances to safety are not taken.
Overloading should be subjected to severe fines, ships should be equip-
ed with at least basic articles of life saving equipment and regular
checks on the seaworthiness of individual ships should be a must.
Until such time as these measures are taken it is certain6 the Lloyds

England (GEC.) Construction was
started and progressed until the ov-
erthrow of the Magloire regime in
December of 1956; at this juncture
the GEC packed up and sailed for
home leaving the construction of the
new 3rd storey incomplete and leav-
ing Haiti with a complex and trou-
blesome phone system.
But this was not all that the Gen-
eral Electric Company left -behind.
Sitting idle in a City storage depot

equipment, switches, wires, teleph-
ones and cables and with the ex-
ceptionr of some of the cable none
of this expensive equipment is of
any use to Haiti's present telephone
Before dwelling further on the
present day involvements, a res-
ume of Haiti's current system is
desirable. The automatic system of
telephone communication exists in
'the Capital City, Cap-Haitien, Cayes
and Jacmel. (Work is being perfor-
, med at .the moment to bring Petion-
ville and Bpis- Patate.' a residential,
section, into the automatic system
also.) A semi-automatic system ex-
ists in Port-de-Paix. Petit-Goave,
Saint Marc and Gonaives. This sys-
tem works through a switchboard
operated manually, by ar operator
who dials-required numbers.
The rest of Haiti's towns are ser-
ved by a tele-magnetic system. Of
the existing' telephones, 3,900 are
sited in Port-au-Prince, 400 in Cap-
Haitien, 60 in Jacmel and an equal.
number in Cayes. Other towns of
the Republic contain a spattering
of telephones. As with the capital,
Cap-Haitien, providing the. money
could be found, has a large potential
-at least 800 telephones stated Mr.
As regards to a telephone waiting
list, Haiti evidently has quite a
lengthy one, according to Mr. Hip-
polyte. but additional phones under
the present system are "out of the
question as. we do not have suffi-

Thus it is readily seen that such
a diversified and complex system
or systems does not lead to the
smooth functioning of a Telephone
Service. During GEC's spasm of
construction and planned automatic
system installation. the English
Company ,installed a semi-autdma-
tic system in Port de Paix, St.
