wharf. destined for the Ei
Jacmel, Haiti's second major et were loaded i
Coffee port, lost its wharf in the of the MV "AR
turmoil ravaged by Hurricane French Line on
Ella in August of 1959. The new t e Royal Nethe
wharf, 320 feet long, 40 feet wide ship Company's Lil
and standing in some 20 feet of ed to drop anchc
water on 12 inch piling, was on the 18th of this
constructed in the short space 250 bags of Coffee

Construction Co., Dallas, Texas thus bringing a bh
with royalty money advanced to my back to Jacmi
the Haitian Government by the
Reynolds Mining Company of IN MEMO

the project was John Wiley of
Texas. F- "-


GOOD HANDLING
CAPABILITIES

The new wharf at Jacmel is
capable of accomodatuhg vessels
of up to 1,500 tons or up to a
12 foot draught but will also be
able to handle bigger vessels,
loading or unloading, by utiliz-
ing lighters which will anchor
in the port.
Jacmel's Coffee crop totaled
65,000 bags this year of which
80 per cent had to be- trucked
to Port-au-Prince for export ab-
road at a cost for haulage of
sixty cents per bag. Coffee ex-
porters, now that a wharf is op-
en to ocean going vessels again,
in Jacmel now are confident
that the new facilities will mean
some $80,000 remaining in the
southern town annually.

ants agreed to put half the out-

crop profits at future dates.
This the peasants agreed to do
and today there is ahn ample
supply of water both for agri-
culture and household needs.
The: farmers also learnt how to
construct cisterns to contain
their water and every house in
the area is now equipped with a
water tank and in some cases
three or four of them. These
tanks range in depth from four
or five to anything up to 18 feet.
As with the agriculture, when
the other peasants saw how
these aids could be obtained ev-
eryone clamored to be'in the
co-operative and the expansion
since the inauguration has been
rapid. -
But next to the Agricultural'
activities the greatest change
wrought in the Fermathe area
has'been that of the housing si-

change in the living conditions
of the Fermathe area the little
thatched huts or "Cailles" still
stand in many cases while with-
in a few feet stand the transpo-
sition modern brick and mor-

roofing and in many cases cell-

"A rare quality in art, it can-
not be feigned without disast-
er," states John Canaday on the
subject of Innocence and "prim-
itive" art in the New York Tim-
es of Sunday May 1st.
Canaday sets forth his views
on the current exhibitions in N.
Y. Galleries which are "offer-
ing a series of object lessons
on the subject of Innocence, a
kind of esthetic morality play
with a supporting cast of so call-
ed primitive artists." Included
in Canaday's critic are three
Haitian artists, Georges Liaut-
aud, and Andre Dimanche,
S(sculptors) and Robert St. Brice
(painter).
"Innocence is a most perish-
able quality, and the surest sign
that an individual has lost it is
his awareness of innocence as
something discernable in others
or in his part self. Innocence
may be lost unhappily through
S corruption or, happily enough,
- through the natural course of
Events called experience.
"But," continues Can a d a y,
"once it is gone for good, and
S any effort to return to it, or to
feign it in the interest of self-
deception or of deceiving others
is disastrous."

jerkily, in exhibitions of the work
of Sara Berman, a true innoc-
ent, at the Graham Galleries
and of three Haitian 'primitives',
the innocent sculptor Georges
Liautaud at Janet Nessler's, the
sculptor Andre Dimanche and
the painter Robert St. Brice,
both in process of corruption, at
the Cober Gallery opening Tues-
day." (Canaday took his critic
from a preview of the exhibition
of Dimanche and St. Brice.)
As a lead-in to the Haitian
work Canaday scans Sarah Ber-
man's paintings and states,
"Whether or not her paintings
appeal to you is beside the point
here, the point being that what-
ever else they are, they are ob-
viously the work of a gentle and
intense and innocent soul. They
look the way they do because
they had to, not because the art-
ist studied out for herself a
self-consciously 'primitive' style.
"This is true also of the Hai-
tian blacksmith and sculptor
Liautaud, who is primitive in the
additional sense of being assoc-
fated with vestiges of a primit-
ive culture still alive among the
common people of Haiti specifi-
cally, voodoo.

Training Schools For ESSO Worl
"MAKE WORKERS MORE ADV ANCED BETTER.: i


One of the most important
factors in a modern business or-
ganization today is the continu-
al training of employees to im-
prove their technical and admi-
nistrative abilites, according to'
one American company in the
Caribbean-Central American ar-
ea which had more than 20 per
cent of its employees attend for-
mal training programs in 1959
as paint of its normal program.

During the year Esso Standard
Oil, S.A., distributors of petrol-
eum products throughout the
Caribbean. Central American
and Panama, provided training
courses for 567 of its employees
and dealers, most of whom were
citizens of the various countries
where it operates. These cours-
es, which are planned and sup-


er'vised by a special training
department in the company, in-
volved 78 formal group progr-
ams. They represent and reflect
the company's interest and con-
cern in the continual need for
highly competent and skilled cnr-
ployees. an Esso statement said.

Participants in the programs
included managers. supervisors.
dealers, specialists, salesmen
and others. Among the courses
given %ere supervisoIS training,
management 'procedures. indust-
rial sal-s methods, efficient
work systems, financial report-
ing. chemical market research,

ations and management.

8'ant is, to- have a daily 600"kilo
4,acity when. all machinery is
nstplled and,,when the 12 collect-
Sstations .are at their peali
ftinction. As a preliminary to
'Sunday's opening ceremony test
.butter .runs" were commenced
orinday week ago and a daily
iru of ,120 kilos of butter was
vpolved, (Haiti's daily consump-
~on of butter is in the region of
5.PO. kilos.)
"Ib'Butter making machinery for
:the'Aiix Cayes plant was purch-
'1ased in the U.S.. Holland and
''" itierland and several pieces
'ljM,ve'yet. to' be shipped to Haiti
:iO'gi0j fIistilled in the plant. The
J laEcw; 'of these pieces is being
"emYipritarily taken by old mach-
tiery that was available here.
"' 'Until such time' as the additio-
'tMhibia bOtter making equipment is
'(firstalled in the we laid out
! .'lant only five of the available
"~I collection stations will be util-
"zed. Senior FAO expert Jacques
'iGnson stated at the opening ce-
M."eony "Many of the dairy fat-
li'- ers are a little vary as yet
towardss the new factory but in
~"fifne they will start to send in
theirher ceain along with the otAl-
.*ers. As a tentative date f r

.'(H,_ .


ed as "a possibuity."


The. 3,000.dairy farmers in the
are a own between them in the
approximate. : region of 8,000
cows. Milk from these, cows is
to be taken. by their owners to
the collecting, stations and at
each ,pf.these a separator hag
been installed to gather the cre-
am, which in turn..is taken to
the butter factory for churning;
LOW -.TIL PRODUCTION
A basic .problem confronting
both the farmers and the Beur-
rerie Cooperative du Sud is that
of quantity. For although 8,000
cows are to be affiliated to the
cooperative, each of these ani-
mals, on the average, produces
only the meagre quantity of 2
to 3 litres of milk per day -
from which only the cream can
be usel by the factory.
As this is to 'D. pur.ey a butt-
er factory and not one interested
in the processing or pasteuriza-
tion of milk, all the skimmed
milk is to be handed back to the
farmers for their own consump-
tion and disposal. Most of the
farmers in the Aux Cayes area
dispense with the milk among
their families and in feed for
pig 'and chickens.
To better the sorry lack of
milk production USOM is to
make a third loan of $15,000 !o
be used at Aux Cayes for an
'extensive program of artificial
insemination. Vials of semen are

the resulting new stock will be
capable of producing 10 litres of

FAO experts, it will be at least
two or three years before any.
new stock of milk producing agd
will be made available by thd
program.
Heading the staff of the Beur-
rerie: Cooperative du Sud is Dir-
ector Prdtais Regis who has per-
Tormed work with the FAO in
the past and has recently retur2
ned to Haiti from Belgium and
Switzerland; Henri Larosiliere, d
Haitian'who'hhs 'fuidied on a U1
SOM scholarship in Cuba and is

factory; Robert Favresse, a
rimember of FAO with consider-
able Cooperatives experience -
a native of -Belgium; Senior.Et-
pert Jacques Grison and Advis-
ory Expert S. Hess both of the
FAO Organization.
The opening ceremony of the
butter factory, the latest in an
increasing group cooperatives
in Haiti, was held as part of a
week long Seminar centred in
Port-au-Prince and titled the
"National Seminar on Cooperat.
ives and Community Develop-
meNt," Covering a seven day
program, commencing on May S.
attended by Haitian Govt. emp)-
oyees, Civil Servants, and Unh-

produce 200,000 bags of sugar
Whereas the butter. factory will
incur a shortage of raw mater
ials for an undetermined. period
while awaiting herd increases
and an upsurge of cream prod-
ucton, the Dessalines sugar mill
is faced with the problem of too
much raw material for this year.
Her quota on the U. S. market
is set at only 7,000 bags a
figure which officials state could
be filled by the Dessalines mill

Ranking second in production
to the Port-au-Prince HASCC
sugar plant, Dessalines has al-
ready produced sufficient sugar
to fill her U.S. quota for this
year and if the total expected
output is not disposed of offi-
cials of the mill state
that it will take the local market
at least 18 months to absorb it,
and at a grave loss. Dessalines'
directors are hoping that the U-

rNt' York City, N.Y. May 2,
i960. Considerable interest is
being stirred up in Wall Street
as to the var.t potentials of the
Republic of Haiti. Major topics
of luncheon and cocktail conver-'

Airport and Wharf Project. Loc-

SThe opposition to any invest-
ment capital going to Haiti
points to the shakey condition of
the present and previous Govern-
ments, the lack of sound man-
agement in high administrative
posts and the lack of planning.
The Opposition contends that
such conditions do not make
Haiti a good credit risk (main-
ly because of the lack of Man-
agement).
Favoring broad programs of
assistance are many business
and industrial leaders that have
personally explored conditions in
Haiti and apparently are well

ism and the formal composition
of Synthetic Cubism (Nessler.
Apr. 18-May 7) G.D.

GEORGES LIAUTAUD: The
Metal sculpture of this show
might be described as folk art
-which it is- were it not for
the personal imagination that
distinguishes it from more con-
ventional work. It is primitive
Haitian -made of sections cut
from gasoline drums- and it
draws upon an imagery of vood-
oo tempered by Catholicism.
"The Virgin with Three Heads",
for instance, combines aspects
of the fetish with Christian sym-
bolism. "Devils and Captives",
in which a horned devil leads
a file of chained prisoners,
seems to be more personal. Li-
autaud's work was represented
in the 1958 Carnegie Internatio-
nal and in the last Sao Paulo
Biennal. In its naivete and un-
encumbered serio u s n e s s one
glimpses the qualities which
made primitive work a source
/ of excitement in the early part
of the century. (Nessler, Apr.
- 18-May 7.) G.D.

WEIGHT LIFTER NEEDS ASSISTANCE
HAITI'S CHANCE FOR
ROME OLYMPICS


Second place on the victors'
stand at last year's Pan Ameri-
can Games was taken by a 26-
.year-old Haitian competing for
the first time in his life, Philo-
me Laguerre runner up in the
light heavyweight lifting divis-
ion to Americas' best in the
class, Clyde Emrich.
Undisputed as Haiti's champ-
ion weight lifter with a record
of 902 pounds in three Olympic
lifts, Laguerre, by dint of hard
work since he started lifting in
1958, has progressed to the point
where he would make a solid in-
vestment for Haiti at this year's
Olympic Games to be held in


No Haitian team participated
in Games held in Venezuela last
year and the winner of Philome
Laguerre's weight lifting class,
a Puerto Rican by name Torres,
took the title with a lift of 796
pounds well below Philome's
best. Taking the young Haitian's
record lift of 902 pounds it is
feasible that he could have woPn
the class by a margin of 100
pounds.

Four days a week at the con
clusion of work, Philome is em-

that the concentration paid off.

Members of the ITAS (Americ u Negro Travel Society) arrived'
in Haiti last week for a convention and were accorded a .warm,
welcome by Haitian Governmen, Officials and Members of. the;
Tourist Bureau. The ITAS members paid a visit to Cap-Haitiai?
and the Citadel to see for themselves the renunants of Haiti's
glorious history.


Weight lifting fans both in Hai-.
ti and the United States believe
that Philome Laguerre stands
a good chance at an Olympic,

licials here have indicated they. :
are willing to send the weight;:!

Long premeditated shutdown was

CORNERED MARKET?
HAMPCO's contract, stated the
spokesman, gives them the ex-
clusive right to slaughter cattle
and sell meat to the Port-au-
Prince area; it also requires
them to slaughter for a third
party, but, this meat CANNOT
go onto the market reserved for
HAMPCO meat in other.words
HAMPCO has the entire meat
market of Port-au-Prince.
Despite the close down meat
is still available at the Damien
slaughterhouse and pac king
plant and some butchers are con-
tinuing with their purchasing of
HAMPCO meats.'The spokesman
continued that some 400 head of
cattle are being fattened on
.Jonpany grazing land at Dami-
en and it the need arises these
animals will be slaughtered. Al-
so on hand are thousands of
pounds of meat cuts, ham,
hamburger, hotdogs, bolo gna
and salami etc.
The spokesman stated that
HAMPCO's suggestion for rect-
ification of the present problems
Is the formation of a wholesale
company, either Govern m e n t,
Municipal or private enterprise,
to distribute the meat. He cau-
tioned that the illegal meat now
being slaughtered -could well
cause an -outbreak of Tetanus,
adding that the HAMPCO plant
outlawed all diseased animals
that have bo:ight to the plant
in the past have been condemn-
ed.
He further maintained that the
Damien slaughterhouse is as
modern and hygenic as any in
the U.S. and that its operations
could help considerably to cut
down Haiti's annual imports by
supplying all the meat small-
goods imported today rom the
States..
RE SAMMIY FERBER
In regard to the much debated
question of what had become of
Sammy Ferber and whether he
had been placed on the persona
non grata list the HAMPCO
spokesman stated that Ferber
had been an expeditor and had.
.helped a lot .to put the slaught-


erhouse and meat packing plant
together. The Board of Direct-
ors however had decided that
his functions here were finished
and there was no further. parti-
cular need for Sammy Ferber on
the HAMPCO project.

'More and more- the security
if -our lives and properties are
threatened.. Yesterday I again
received a memorandum dated
May 11th, 1960, from the Secret-
ary of State of Interior and Na-
tional Defence; This memorand-
um was marked urgent and it
transmitted to me a copy of a
report of the Commander of the
Fire Brigade dated April 28th,
1960 and addressed to the Army
Headquarters.
"In this report it was stated
that the Electric Company was
making use of deteriorated mat-
erials a sample of which was
sent- to me.
FAMOUS ARTICLE 24
"We remain perplexed in read-
ing article 24 of the contract
between the Haitian Govern-
ment and the Company. This
contract states that the compa-
ny has to hand over to the State
the Electric .Company IN A
V ERY GOOD FUNCTIONAL
STATE on the expiration of
their contract, the concession. of
which ends in the year 1971, (in
II years time.)
"Is not the company facing
d terrible state of conscience?
Will they renew the material
which they will eventually turn
over to the Haitian State in 11
years? -very certain since
that is a constituent of -the spir-
it of the contract.
"But the problem of the cons-
cience, when it is a matter of
business, does it not oblige the
company to make the Govern-.
ment participate in the renewing
of the material? THERE IS
THE GAME OF THE COMPA-
NY! It is obviously the second
attitude that is chosen by the
company: an attitude that will
upset the concept of the contr-
act's concession.
HIDEOUS SPECTRE
ON HORIZON
"A- lot of- advantages were give
"en to the 'company when the
contrAct was signed in 1906. In
the exchange -the principle would
become p property of the Haitian
Government in 1946, but, alas,.
in 1935 the company obtained a.
prolongation oofthe.:cdpntract. with
some new advantages and the
poor Haitian people are now for-
ced- to wait until 1971 td receive
thd plant.
"A. hideous spectre appears on
the horizon and the problem of
the company is now a problem
:of burning reality.

BRITISH DOLLAR

Mr. R. B. Tippetts, Chief Ex-
ecutive of the Dollar Exports
Council of London, England de-
parted from Haiti on Monday of
this week after meeting with
Dollar Coundil, Bank and Gov--
ernment officials during his two-
day visit here.
The Dollar Exports Council is
an independent, private organiz-
ation which has as its object the
promotion of United Kingdom
exports to. dollar markets. Its
members include some of Brit-
ain's busiest and most success-
fll businessmen who work for
the council on a purely volunt-
ary basis and are not paid.
Full backing of the council is
given by the British Government
and it is sponsored by a long
*list of important-British trade
federations and associa t i o n s
which provide the council with
extensive contacts throughout
British Industry and Labor.
In Haiti the Dollar Exports
Council is represented by an in-
formal committee which assists
