ing of this country. Splendid and
radiant is her palette. She has
a marvelous faculty of analysing
the soul of Haiti.
One can see on her canvasses
the results caused by the lu-
minrosity of the sun.
"Haiti inspires me to much
more color than in the States,
to- colors become excitingly
bright under this country's sun.
Haiti is the greatest, source of
inspiration for an artist" states
M.mi Denton "and it is difficult
to point to a beginning for
each (and every scene is a gen-
erous offering of Haiti's nature.
Mi mi Denton first came to
Haiti, in company with her mu-
sician husband Malcolm in the
early spring of J1955. They had
been to all of the islands in the
Caribbean, with the exception of
Haiti. Through, the introduction
of Miss Marielle Bancou, Mimi
and her husband were greeted
here by Mine Silvere Pilie w'.;o
first introduced the American
artist to Haiti's flood of color
and beauty. When the Pilies left
Haiti, she was taken under the
wing and care of Mme Edith
Gautier. Now, Mimi Denton sees
Haiti as do the Haitian people.
"I feel like a Haitian, she sta-
tes; and I -believe it is this feel-
ing that is necessary to depict
Haitian life authentically."
"Whether the painting is prim-
itive, impressionist, expression-
ist or abstractionist, there can
never cease to be a feeling ex-
pressed," says she.
Her painting "MOTHER and
CHILD" does not only hold one's
attention .because of the subject.
but it evokes a poetic sentiment.
Crill; i.ere contend -that her
paintings are a rare example of.

forceful, original, and pr a i s e
them as a sensitive and contem-
porary response.
As an Artist Mimi Denton has
an excellent academic back-
.;ioiund. She commenced her art
stlices with the National Aca-


demy, besides the Art Student-s
LIeague.- She has also studied
with two of The United States
leading instructors, Victor Can-
.dell and Umberto Romano.
Mimi Denton is more impres-
sionist in her style. I'm too
emotional to paint completely
abstract" stated Mimi Denton.
She has no great pet among the
masters, although she admires
particularly the works of Gau-
guin, and those of Picasso's
more recent .works. Like Gau-


guin she seeks beauty and truth
in her paintings. This she finds
with the true depiction of the
"Joie de Vivre" of the "Haitian
life.
Her work promises to make
an important contribution to the
Haitian scenes. And it would be
well worth to visit this collection
now on view.
(A review of the work of MI-
CHELINE BRIERRE will ap-
pear next week).

Aurele Joseph, Brigadier Gene-
ral Pierre Merceron and other
high ranking' army officers.
The parade also included units
of the civil militia. Commenting
on the anniversary review the
daily "Le Matin" stated, "the
guards for the protection of the
President of the Republic, Dr
Francois. Duvalier, had always
existed as the military house
guards of the president.

"The new orientation given by
Dr Duvalier to the military org-
anization of this country is in
the manner of conceiving the
functional independence of the
armed services and their role
in the defense of the constitu-
tional order. He (the President)
made this corps especially af-
fected to the defense of the per-
s)n of the President of the Re-
public."


Le Matin continued stating,
"This a special organization, re-
siding at' the National Palace,
that is to say, a clean person-
ality corps with a better adapta-
tion to new problems. .

"HIe has made an elite miti-
tary entity, better imbued than
before with its patriotic mission
and abundantly equipped and
subject to harmonious training
better for this imperative hour.
Since its creation, and to these
days, the Presidential Guard has
proven itself." The newspaper
also cited the "valor and fidel-
ity" of the Commander in Chief
of the Presidential Guard, Major
Claude Raym6nd, and Captains
Namphy and Duperval.
Le Matin concluded with a tri-
bute to the socio-political and
military mission of the Presiden-
tial Guard and to the moral te-
riue and physical form of the
men composing the unit.

GUEST EDITORIAL .. Npw- York Times Feb. 2nd
HEMISPHERIC TASK -FORCE

News that the Kennedy Administration is forming a task force'
to coordinate policies on Latin America is interesting and en'coff-
raging. The problems of the hemisphere, are amorig 'the Most
criticall and important facing. the new Administration. "They are
problems of enormous complexity and scope. The sooner -some
expert knowledge is put to work, some studies made and policies
reviewed, the sooner the Government can act. This is a field that
i ly needs what Presidefit Kennedy pledged--deeds and. not words.
Adolf A. Berle Jr., who ,is to -head the new task force; is a
v(teranjij long experience in Latin-Ameican affairs. He will takt.
With h fi expert knowledge .of the region as .a whole, _plus a life-
time of'study in. and enthusiasm for the American system of liberal.
democratic free enterprise capitalism, This combination is valuable
at a time When the pressures for -social reforms in Latin America
come from the Left. -
The names of those taking part in the task force are all cornm-
rpwindable and two deserve special notice. Thomas Mann will not
.nily be in the new group hut'.will continue indefinitely as Assistant
Secretary of State in'charge of the Bureau of Inter-American Af-
a.irs. Thee 'is no career officer better qualified than. Mr Mtann
for. these tasks, and President Kenndy is fortunate to have luhim
I.ridging the gap between-the Jast- Administration and' this one.
ItI wds a truly.brilliant idea to bring in ArtUro Morales Catrion,
Governor Munor Marin's Under Secretary of .State in Puerto Rico,
u.. one of Ihree deputy assistant secretaries-in the Inter-Americin
Buiireau. Dr. Morales Carrion 'notl- nly has- every desirable quuli-
tfcation, but he will fill- a gap that desperately needed filling. This'
is to work in the field of cultural relations between Latin America
r-nd the United Statys. The intellectual plays' a great role.4n Latin
America. but he has been sadly *iieglected by the United States.
Dr. Morales C3rrior. knows us afid knows them. He is both liberal
.-6id young enough to 'have a-close feeling for the Latin-American
studentss and teachlics. Although he is so different himself, he can

A CHILD PRODIGY


Twent3-six excellent painting-., on display. at El Rancho Hotel,
testify to the matrue skill of cluld prodigy painter, '18-sear-old

At the age of 12, when children of her own age were playing
vjpscotch, Micheline was painting and creating with lines and
d colors a world populated with hope and love.

Noow at 18. her works show their maturity. of a great talent. Just
.er a year ago. at the inauguration of thle Marabou furniture'
.e on Rue des Miracles, Micheline first displayed her remark-
'e painting sensitivity to the public. The praise came swift and
wrranted and the young girl's work has progressed e\en further
ce, aided with that confidence given by recognition.

Mardi Gras And Rara:*


i Continued from puge 1)
the attention and admiration of
the spectators, and its rani',s are
often swelled by passers-by mo-
ving in the same direction who
choose to dance their way along
the roads rather than walk. Of-
ten women and girls on distant
market errands will join in the
celebration, seemingly unencim-
beled by the heavy loads they
carry on their heads.
The Mardi Gras of the mount-
ains and the plains is a dynamic
spring rite of which the urban
elite version is only a pale and
feeble imitation. There are r:o
pretty floats, no exhibits of fe-
male beauty, and no Coca-Cola
advertisements. Sometimes the
country bands move into Port
au Prince and join the urban
activities.

One b; one the spectacles pass-
b:' on their uncertain v.ay tu
north or south, into the town or
o it of the town, wherever chan-
ce leads them. In addition to the
mi.sicians, acrobats. jugLlers
and masked dancers, there are
baton twirlers. comedians on
stilts, and mimes. E-ch group
has its own theme One may
call itself the Zcaubeaips, an-
other the Cochons Gris. another
Cochons Rouges names dest.
gnating legendary h a l f demon
cannibals who meet in secret ni
the hollow heart of the mapout
tee. Some are dressed in comic"
a 'cient military attire, replete
v ith swords, epaulets, medals.
and outlandish beards, represen-
ting "the Generals". Others, un-
ther the name Bande Ortophon-
ic, follow a haman phonograph
- a leader singing through an
antique Edison horn.
And there are bands of malce
P.UBANIERS, or Maypole danc-
ers. some of them attired as wo-
men. weaving their colored rib-


stick (lancers known as BATON-
Ni, dressed in wonien'sr clothing,
crouch in circles and perform
baton-tapping dances to the ac.
companiment of drumming" and
singing. Other small bands wan-
der about impersonating charac-
ters from folklore..or politics in
grotesque homemade costumes.
One might see, for example, a
fanciful bocor driving before him
a band of zombies, wielding a
whip. and barking out weird
loucous commands.


gane is transformed into a._mil-
ling, surging, trumpeting mass
of celebrating country people.
The songs heard during Rara
are full of praise or derisionf for
well-known personalities. Some
of them are bolhJy, ribald or li-
centious. And often the' dancing
itself is openly sexual in its im-
plications. Haitians humorously
refer to this kind of dancing as
ENRAGE (bnraged, crazy).
Early in January, even while
the Mardi Gras is in progress,
each community gets down to


AJter the cataclysmic grand the business of organizing its
finale of the Mardi Gras as Shro-, Rara group. It may be organiz-


\etide there is the. briefest of
lulls, and then the country is
in the throes of Rara. The day
of the ROI Laluidit (the King
of Laloiditi has arrived. Hun-
dreds of Rara band-s m-o v e
through the -towns and villages,
-.ac'i with its orchestra of bam-
hoe trumpets or conch-shell
horos and its "king" an or-
nately clad dancer or baton jug.
'er-. The Rar'a bands move from
place to place. dance, sing, ex
hibit their featured performers.
and then move on, pressed per
hi'ps by other hands behind them
or jostled by another group mo-
.ing in the opposite direction
When darkness comes, the bands
ligh! their .ay with wooden tor.
ches or candelabra of tiny oil
Jamps. Every week end for sev-
en %weeks, in the heat of day and
the darkness of night. the moun-
tain trails are alive with these
processions.

The Rara festivities- reach
their climax on Good Friday
weekendd and by Easter morning
they are ended. During these
fanal da3s there is a last grand
display, with troupes- coming in
from the mountains and the
plains to the larger cities and
towns. One of the traditional Ra-


bons around portable pores, to ra convocation centers in the
the accompaniment of guitars, so-'in is the town of Leoganev
marmnbulas, and cha-chas. Male On Good Friday weekend, Leo-


ed in one of several ways. In
certain communities there' is
some continuity over a period
Af years, the Rara or Charge au
pied band remaining more -or
'ess intact. Normally it bas -a
IMAIT'Rara,-..also called MAJOR
r -PRESIDENT, who assumes
the organizational responsibilit-
,es for the group. This means
f getting new costumes for the
participants when required, re-
f :rbishing the old costumes and
musical instruments, and recrui-
tin special talent perhaps a
new "king". Where the same
- oup continues from- year to
,ear, the Mait Rara actually
serves as a sort of executive
secretary In some instances,
however, the initiative for form-
ing a group is undertaken by the
Mait'Rara himself. He chooses
the costumes and DECOR of the
g.oup; he recruits the musicians
aid the young women and girls
S.hao form the singing and dan-
c.ng chorus; and he chooses the
.oai Laloidit, who will be the
group's main-. feature. He may
decide upon the theme around
v.hich the group will be built,
and may even decide upon the
repertoire of songs' it will sing.
The mait'Rrara has specific res-
pansibilities and is obligated to
provide .his band with refresh-
ments and food. .

strings. The "Two Kings," sit-
ting in a papier-mache carriage
or on papier-mache horses, ma-
ke their appearance during Rara
as well as on the Day of the
King (LES ROIS).

Among the traditional para-
phernalia carried by Rara
groups are "cocomacaque sticks,
cha-cha rattles, metal rattles
called TCHANCY, a set of rat-
tles on a tall thin pole (called
JOUCOUJOU), candelabra bear-
ing candles or oil lamps (LAM-
PIONS), banners and flags', and
such miscellaneous musical ins-
truments as the GRAGE scrap-
er,, bamboo scraping devices,
the BASSE finger drum, AS-
SOTOS (beating boards), and va-
rious kinds of secular drums.

The general tone of Rara is
nonreligious. The dancing is free.
from the decorous restraints
which characterize most religi-
ous ritual, and some early obs-
erves of the festival were shock-
ed by what they saw. Some of
them went so far as to attribute
Haiti's dense population to the
"licentious activities" and reck-
less abandon of the spring carni-


val. The Catholic Church and
some political, administrators
have sporadically sought to sup-
press Rara, along with Vodoum
ritual. And even today in Port
au Prince' the foreign visitor of-
ten is urged to watch the .elite
Mardi Gras with its floats and
mulatto queens as a substitute.
Although Rara has an over-all
tone of secular abandon, it has
links with both Catholic and Vo-
doum ritual. Good Friday is gi-
ven over in good measure to
miming the story of Jesus and
Judas. A preambulating band
may carry an effigy of Judas
hanging from a pole. Another
will burn the Judas effigy, or
drag it in the dust as the crowd
moves along the road. In another
group a man playing the part
of Judas may crawl on his hands
and knees along the trail, while
Jesus' avengers pursue him with
long, cracking whips.

Trying in with Vodoun ritual,
virtually all Rara drums and
other .11ialI.pli'inalia are "dedi-
cated" .or rededicated" before
Lent in special hounfor services

Lorinzo S. Winslouw. architect at
the Ee-cuitie Mansion for al-
most 20 years.
Mr Winslow is the father of
Le Roy Elliott's wife and he
is scheduled to visit his daughter
and son-in-law here in Port au
Prince in the near future. tLe

nager of Texaco ICaribbean)

tect who bmilt 10 million dollars

"it a -not really a bad place to
lite. and the new tenants should
FFEl right at home in a couple
of \eCeks."
In -a January 22, 1961 "Wash-
ington Sunday Star" .article Mr.
Winslow stated- that he- is cer-
tair. that if Jacqueline. Kennedy,
hie new First Lad3, has any
present misgivings about moving
.nto the Executive Mansion she
cta pul her rrnd at rest.
Mr Winslow is certain that if
Jacqueline Kennedy, the new
First Lady. has an.\ present mis-
givings about moving in she can
put her mind at rest.

"'Contrary to Ahat some peoI
p.e may think, it's really a
very cozy, warm, homey and li-
veable place." he says.
."It's an casy house to adapt.
:,.., and the Kennedys being
: 'ng people will quickly
.'ain to love it.

"And I don't- mean for the'
r imp and the prestige, but as


of its challenge for all new oc-
cupants.
"What every President and
First Lady are faced with,"
says Mr Winslow, "is giving it
their own personal touches.
"By the ,time they have their
own furniture moved in, put
their own lamps on the tables.
hang their pictures, place their
hooks where they want them,
and arrange their own decora.
tions, ash trays and 'sentimen-
tal things well, the rooms
start to become their own and
not just a place one occupied
by another President and his
family."

be useful to the Kennedys fo-
late-evening family snacks.
Undoubtedly, some Presidents
thought of living in the White
House as a necessary evil. In
the past it was draughty and
cold, and not too convenient.

"When the Roosevelts moved
there in 1933. the kitchen was
so bad I wouldn't have wanted
to eat a dinner made in it.'
Mr Winslow said.
Today, as a result of the re
construction of the interior com-
pleted 10 years ago, the White
House is the "best-equipped re-
sidence Ln the country."
Size Nearly Doubled
Between the New Deal admin-
istration and the New 'Frontiei,
the White House has been al-
most doubled -in size, virtually
all of/it under Mr. Winslow's
period in charge. @
Few persons-,. know there's a

an underground passage con-
nects the White House with the
Treasury Building.
"We built it during World
"War II as a possible escape
route," Mr Winslow said. "Of0
course,. the .present bomb shel-
ter -would be -useless in case of
a. direct hit by a hydrogen
bomb. *But -it could be helpful
as a fallout shelter."

West 'Wing -Built in 1902

The West Wing, where the
President's office is situated,
dates from a remodeling in '1902
under direction of the famous
architectural f i r m of McKim,
Meade- and White. This wing
was greatly enlarged -and im-
proved 26 years ago- under Mr
Winslow's supervision.

The Massachusetts-born archi-
tect said the glass-enclosed sola-
rium on the roof and the balcony
are big White House assets.

"The balcony was quite a ne-
cessary affair," he said. "1
made sketches for it originally
for Mr .Roosevelt, then for Mr
fruman."It's the only place the6

N
A Self-contained World
"You can't even hear traffic
noises," Mr Winslow 'said.
In some .respects, the White
House is a soil of self-contained
world all :of itst own.
It has its own power genera-
tors, for example, in case of city-
wide failure....Its own laundry,
plumbing shop, carpenter shop,
electrical shop, paint' shop and
cabinet shop are busy all the
time. Its drinking water tastes
better because it's chemically
softened.
A couple of dozen persons on
the White House" domestic stafff
keep operations of the residence
"almost automatic." -
A dinner for 125 persons can
be-. whipped up without anyone
having tonrush and automatic
dishwashers have a capacity of
2,000-dishes an hour.

Two Basements.
When the mansion was com-
pletely reconstructed except for
