Thus. on the 21st of Octobir.
1937, the hr-st agricultural coop-
erative in Haiti was inaugurated
with the goal set at lifting up
the agricultural, social and liv-

Interest in the program was
immediately forthcoming and
the Director of Rural Education,
Mr. Maurice Dartigue, sent a
three man delegation to exam-
ine and report back on Vernet's
revolutionary cooperative. Com-
posed of Paul Cassagnol. Marc

on the scheme.
Aid was called for -from the

which began issuing plants

formation of the cooperative,
