secret of his success as experi-

the airiorce he pointed out that
he had learnt the art of driving
oil the rugged back roads of

While driving the airmission

ing an average city speed of
thirty miles an hour and has
never been- hailed from the back
seat to slow down or to take it
But with a smile of approval
Speedy noted that one airmis-

Panama City .'his cosmo-
politan capital, -vhich combines
elements of, tie Iar East, the
United States and iOld Spain, is
busy getting ready for a bigger
tide of tourists.

from Los Angeles, S holirs 15

runaway buildup of world coffee
surplus stocks were sounded in
a long-range analysis of the
commodity's supply and demand
patterns prepared by the Secre-
tariat of the International Cof-
These supply and demand for-
ces. it was said, are bound to
bring about the collapse of the
agreement unless something is
done to solve its long range
At the same time, the Secre-
tariat served notice that it ex-
pects an equal increase in cot-1
fee prices if world industrial
prices continue to rise.
No t ing. that \world surplus
stocks now approximate 40 mil-
lion bags, it said that an estima-
ted 17 per cent increase in world
coffee consumption in the next
decade will still not be enoug.i
to rid world coffee producers of
mounting surplus stocks.
The Secretariat said that such
an increase could push consump-
tron to 69 million bags in 1970,
but that 'anticipated prod.ctio.i
in ihat year wo ild hit 8-4 mil.

History Of Haitian Literature
(Continued from page 5)
Hamilton Garoute at 26... We learn that "Mlmola" of Antoine
Innocent was the first Haitian novel where the Voodoo ceremor it-
vetre minutely described; that was in 1906, or 20 years before
Seabrook. There is Vendenesse Ducasse who, in his brief e,\istenoi,
, lote a considerable number of plays, most of which have not
bren preserved for posterity. At the time, the gay .ineties, there
was no Hollywood to provide mass amusements, and %'endenesse
Ducasse was-a faithful purveyor to the theatre-going public. His
pla were mostly based on Haitian life and he was (q ite sar-.
r boutu" the politicians, the merchants (one of lus plays is
6itledl"Haitiaus and Syrians") the police...
." La police aujourd'hui n'a d'egards pour personae
Elle boucle--in chretien-comme on role une tonne.
(The police nowadays respects nobody
.A-,.nd jails a christian like.one rolls a barrel.)
,Ah'd there is Mme Virgile -Valcin who wrote novels is coniplicat-
id iand terrible as-any old time melodrama. And, accordingg to
Gouraige, her. style also is pretty terrible. Deliberately, h oncst.y,
Gouraige studies them all, but you can feel, towards.the riddle
of the book, that he is warming up and that he is relieved to
arrive at last to the moderns. One feels that he has had enough
of Alexandre Fluury-Battier, Alibee Fleury, Emeric Berge:n, Char-
les-Seguy Villevaleix with their "rustique. asile". their "ria:ntes
(haumieres", their grandss mornes bleus'a superbes crinica's"
that remind us of the literary exercises that every little Haitian
"'.igth- his salt has written in "rhetorique", and which would in-
*^ *''.*i-~ .' -
c!'ne us to agree, with Mr Dantes Bellegarde, that Haiti is a .pro-
\ince of France.
Things begin to change-rapidly, almost violently, towards .I92S
It is the year %\hen-"Ainsi Parla I'Oncle" of Dr Jean Price Mars
appears. Gouraige reminds us very aptly that tHe year h12! comes
13 years after the Ameripan Occupation began (1915'. Haitians had
been disarmed and, even though they felt bitter about it, many
thought-that the Americans were superior.-Were they not the vict-
ors, the conquerors? But, after all, those Americans were '"blancti'
just like our masters of yesteryear, the French. Haiti wias now being
cut off from Europe and was being introduced to the American
wy.y- ol life. The result was-a lessening of French influence -_!
favor of the American, and also, aiid chiefly, as .a reaction, a
"turn back to Africa" movement. Two magazines, the -"isue U
Indigene'.' and' "Les Gr)ots" took up the lead and, -suddenly the
"pipaiux rustiques" were replaced by "lambi." "assoltos" ".ace-
cinesi..%.Simultaneously..the liberalism of Adam Smfih, so dear to
mr-st Hiitian intellectuals of former years, seemed 'to ie giving
,Ay to te acidulous teaching of Marx. Pointing all those things
to us, ..Gouraige shows us the new Haitian w-iters in a new Light.
.e also takes tune to point out-to us the Insuspectct importance
of some writers, and also-reviews for us some Autihu's tnat -twe
A.A'e always.'taken for granted without of course,- havift troubl',ld
to6read-theim. In the first instance Gouraige tells us about Renuor
Bernard who, unfortunately, stopped writing at"the age of 30; he
reminds us that Bernard is one of our most significitt poets;. and
we-need to be reminded of that because Bernard's voice has i.ot
Ilen-'ieard for 15 years. In the second instance, we have all heard
abixt Leon Laleau. so much in fact that everybody has taken him
Sfor granted and there:are precious few in the youig geneitison
who have read him. Qouraige describes minutely his work, his
inanner, his thought, his influence and reveals to us, the consider-
rble statur-eof a .writer who is a poet of rare calibre, an un]uslly
forgotten, novelist, an incisive observatory oatthe Haitii i-scene.-Hie
also does justice to the delicate poetry of Grimard or to the ire
of Burr-Seynaud against the American Marines and the corruptt"
ii an elite. Gouraige keeps his book very much up-to-dalc and
menons the latest comer in Haitian literature, Jean-Richard La-
fotb';t. whose book. of poems appeared only two months before
,Gffltige's ARiHitory of- Haitian Literature.
S'.tvagree with "Bibliophile" that the book is inionmplete, we
aso agree that some of the judgments (not a great many; are
Fspbjec't to criticism, but we-proclaim that it is a great book and
:.'hpe that many will read it; and-that it will provoke in many
e desire to read Haitian books.
