GEOEG.JA PiBLISI3,ER
VISFT ON PIONEI,!
TRIP
H. MclKn:e;.. Coi .iv ty .. Co i-
.way Public4tions. Atiintj. Geor-
gia, flew into Haiti noon Tues-
day this week on his pioneering
flight by light plane around the
Caribbean to accelerate tourism
in the area.
Accompanied by his wife Bec.
ky and two daughters, Linda 12
and Laura 10, Conway left At-
lanta on the first leg of his Car-
ibbean Circle Flight" on June
5th and expects to cover, by the
time he returns- to Atlanta on
June 30, some 7,000 miles and
25 major airports.
Conway's intentions for making


this unprecedented flight is the
focusing of attention on the dev-
elopment potential of the Car-
.ibbean region and its close rela-
tion to the United States. "We
are going to prove," states Mc-
Kinley Conway, "that it is en-
tirely practical for thousands of
U.S. Caribbean businessmen and
their families to explore this
great Caribbean area py private
plane."
The Conway quartet left Bow-
en Field at 9am Wednesday for
their stop. Ciudad Trujillo. Trav-
elling in a Cessna model 182,
single engine, four passenger
monoplane, the Georgia publisher
and his family appeared quite
content with their trip to date.


Jovial and renowned Roger
Coster, his wife Laura and sons
Roger Jr., and Robert, departed
from Haiti this week to take up
residence in Puerto Rico after
five years in Port au Prince as
ond of the capital's most success-
ful Hotel owners.
On retiring from photography
Coster came to Haiti and set up
the "Grand Hotel Oloffson,"
which under his vibrant manage-
ment swiftly became famous

On a visit to the "Sun" a num-
ber of local businessmen stated
that they would be happy to sell
their entire stocks to the U. S.
Govt. through the American
Embassy here. They estimated
that flom, $60,000 to $80,000 worth
of the material is available in
the capital's market currently.

Employees of the Company
however were not the only dis-
satisfied and one after the other
a number of charges and claims
were thrown at the feet of the
Company heads. "We can go
back to 1952-53 where we had
to face the strange attitude of
the company's management
which each time a technical pro-
. blem came.along objected that
the financial situation was one
of deficit."
So stated Public Works Minist-
er Michel Lamartinere Honorat
during a scathing attack on the
Electric Company made before
Congress on May 11th in which
-with all stops, pulled the Minist-
er said, "It is very obvious that

Honorat admits by stating. "We

to March 21, 1960, the sum of

berland who used to work as an

again the Government is accus-
ed as the.company states that
the government does not give
any help to stop the Cumberland
situation."
Minister Honorat suggested
that the campaign against the
"current thieves" should be con-
tinued but added that the only
reason the Cumberland was in
use on such a wide scale was
because the price of the kilowatt
was too high. His contention was
that the company should lower
the kilowatt price and then the
government would help stop the
practice of using Cumberlands


in their wide diversity of shape
and form.
Further allegations of danger
to lives and property were made .?
during the fiery speech; allega--.-

Furthermore, implicit in the
initial conviction that the conn-

viction that the control of reali-

Thus, applied science, which h is

followed in these paths into UicO

loa, and the collective support
of the community, represents a
total force whose stature makes
,magical power seem puny, ind-
eed. For this reason any pro-
ject which is morally acceptab-
le to the Vodun loa is undertak-
en undei these auspices so that
it may enjoy these tremendous
advantages. i
Thus, although, theoretically,
rnagical powers can be exercis-
ed either in a moral or an im-
,moral direction, the moral or
white magic -cures, therapy,
etc.- is, In Haiti, performed by
the hungan within and with the
support of the religious structure;
by contrast the activity of the
, .magician consists of projects
whose, moral nature is such that
!they could not enlist the sup-
1hJ port bf the religion.
A person who becomes ill be-
.gins, as is normal, by attempt-
ing' to treat himself witli his per-
sonal herbal knowledge, as we
I.:. might begin by taking aspirin or
hot tea. If the illness does not
pass, he consultsia hungan. And
the, first task pf the hungan is
to decide whether it is really a
'physical disease or one of "sup-
er:natural" origin. If it. is physi-
cal, the hungin-may attempt to

.-'pirofessional medical attention,
for it would never be to his cre-
dit to fail 'in' a cure. In order
to appreciate the real sense-of
the hungan's distinction between
'i. natural and "unnatural" disease,
"one has; simply to read psycho-

The disturbed mental states re-

in the anxiety and tensions im-

Psychosomatic disorders are

ances which we judge to be vir--
tually unendurable, as far as
physical and mental strains are
concerned. Scientists are the first
to insist that the tremendous
increase in psychological disord-
er in our culture is not due to
a sudden, inexplicable decline in
the quality of human mentality,
but that our culture itself must
somehow be responsible. We
must, therefore, in all reason,
conclude that the Haitian culture
itself must also be responsible
for the salutary absence of such
disorders in Haiti. It would not
be correct to ascribe it to a
basically simple or easy life, for
the strain of sheer subsistence
is there overwhelming; and it
would not be reasonable, either,
to Ihink of it as a fabulous streak
of cosmic good luck. We have,
indeed, no alternative but to put
two and two together: to place
the "superstitious" magical and
religious rituals which would
seem to have no apparent pur-
pose or value (from the scienti-
fic point of tiew) side by side
with the salutory phenomena
which have no apparent cause or
reason, and to investigate wheth-
er there might 'not be some
consecutive relatioisip between
these, and the nature of, it, if it
exists.

fellowship will aid her govern-
ment in assessing the fish res-
ources of the Philippines and in
the determination of what act-
ion needs to be taken wheth-
.er expansion of fisheries or con-
servation measures.
Miss Aline Moyse. 35, is an
agricultural home economics in-
spector for Haiti's Department
of Home Economics, and in
charge of the training of home
economics agents. She received
a fellowship in Home Economics
in order to aid the peasant wom-
en in bettering their living con-
dlitions.
Aural home economic centres
had been established in Haiti
with the goal of instructing the
peasant %woman on food and nu-
trition prob:e.ns, cultivation of
food-stuffs and the rearing of
poultry so that she could supply
her family with food, thus leav-
ving her husband free to produce
these goods necessary to earn
money for the family's upkeep.
The centres aroused the great-
est amount of interest in the Hai-
tian peasant women. However,
the centres were run by agricul-
tural agents whose training need-
ed to be managed and supervis-
ed by the agricultural home ec-
onomics inspector. And this is
where Miss Moyse and her fell-
owship training was applied.
HOW TO CHOOSE CANDI-
DATES
How are the fellowship candi-
dates chosen? Roughly, the re-
quirements for an FAO fellow
are these:
Adequate -basic and technical

planned. Good general charact-

training seriously. Good health,

PROPOSED BILL
OBJECTIONS

.Strong objections were raised
to the introduction to the Ass-
embly of a bill which would
compel all businesses employing
more than fifteen persons to hire
a permanent counsellor. Introd-
uced by Deputy Lucien Belizaire
the bill received strong comm-
ent from daily newspapers.
Publishing of the memocand-
um of the bill in La Phalange
prompted Maitre Emile Cauvin,
one of Port au Prince's leading
lawyers, to describe the bill 'as,
"an attempt to control the legal
profession."

Voices in the Chamber of De-
puties were raise in opposition
and stating that the bill was a
"monstrosity" Deputy Pierre
Amand added, hat the fees de-
manded by a counsellor would
be a stead,,' burden on all small
enterprises as well as a deterr-
ent to those planning to expand


RAISES STRONG
BUT PASSES

together with a risk for aggra-
vating unemployment.
Haitian law stipulates that a
lawyer can be at the service of
one company only and as this
country consists of a number of
small enterprises in excess of
available lawyers the enforce-
ment of such a bill would be
made beyond the bounds of feas-
ibility.
Small budgets and tight oper-
ating incomes in the case of
most firms here would mean
that in the event of the retain-
ing of a lawyer personnel would
probably have to be dropped or
the firm would have to be oper-
ated on a budget which would
very effectively prevent further
expansion.
As one lawyer pointed out this
week he would not feel inclined
to demand a fee each month
from someone to whom he had
tendered no services.
