FRIDAY October 15th Fal-

and splintered homes foretell
a grim future for these hurri-

Inhabitants of the area, sup-

Hazel, the Uncertain Hurri-

swath of devastation through

VIENNA In the fall this
lovely city awakes full o"
flirtatious glitter a n d sweet
music. Lilting tunes from the
eMerry Widows echo 'romni
crystal 1- decked ballro o m s
where dazzling royal courts
once glided in three-quarter
time and the -lusty chorus of
Ach, du lieber Augustin- rises
from the deep old cellar cafes
in back alleys.

The Austrian capital beguIl.j
stranger and native alike, when
autumn t i n t s the Vienna
Woods and etches the majestic
boulevards in a glow of soft
color. Viennese straggle back
to their coffee houses, students
to the arcades of the universi-
ty and visitors to the dappled
sunlight and new wine casks
of the Grinzing Gardens.
Prices'are reasonable in Vie-
nna, another world capital
served by Pan American World
Airways. A single room-with
bath .in a good hotel costs no
more than $5 (US.) Accommo-
dations in the lake and moun-
tain regions are.even lower.

Vienna air. Though the damag-
ed State Opera House will not
be completed until 1957, grand
opera ,is being staged at the
Theater an der Wien, the old
operetta house of Franz Laher.
Prices for seats range from $2
to 40 cents at the box office.
Tourists with a yen to sample
luscious pastries need on'y
wander over to a coffee house,
and there are probably more

than perfume shops in Paris.
Variety in coffee is as wide as
it is in pastry. No one asks
merely for a cup of coffe-?e,
since there are about 50 ways
in which it can be served, rang
ing from heavy black mocca*
to white whipped cream coat-
ed sch]agobers.,

Afternoon tea which the
Viennese call rjause- costs less
than a quarter for coffee,
pastry and sandwiches. Break-
fast averages 25 cents, and a
four-course meal with native
wine goes for $1. Even the tou
rist who dines at a de luxe


place such as the ,Stadkrug-
with Its elegant candle-lit de-
cor can sedom spend more
than $2.50 including wine, ser-
vice and tax.

Karntnerstrasse, Vienn's Fifth
Avenue, is chuck-a-block ful'
of wonderful gifts at prices
which make many a visitor
blink in amazement. P e t i t
point bags go for $20. Silk em-
broidered blouses sell for $12
and thick wool ski sweaters
for $15. Famous Meissen and
Old Vienna porcelain are a-

Evidences of the reign of
the Hapsburg family from the
13th centuryto 1918, the long-
est reign by any single fami-

everywhere. Visitors may walk
through the private apart-
ments of Emperor Franz Josc-
with their pomp of a by gore
empire on display. Famous
collections of Michelangelo, R.U-

Help


In The Hurricane
OW THAT THE hurricane hai passed with its attendant
confusion and devastation, we can pause to thank the
LL.public spirited volunteers who lessened its impact by
Ssen-less, often gruelling, service.

The Red Cross, led Dr. Louis Roy, worked round the clock
4 to salvage the broken pieces. S h o r t I y after the
.- first warning came through at RCA, Mrs Roy and a corpas of vo-
1., lunteor ladies dug in at Red Cress. Headquarters working their
.way through stacks of denim, needles and third.

In co-operation with the Government, the voluntary society
thoughtt stocks of tfed, and medical equipment and corall-
ing doctors, and nurses headed south as soon as boats and
'planes could get through.


Shelters were set up, emergency clinics opened, and the
wounded homeless citizens of what was Jeremie and Aux C Ps
got the. best care possible. The Society still is tailing over
re-habillitation plans : .sweeping-up. has begun.

DOf. Lobit. from the start, kept abrdiast If Bazel's movementS,
poring sleeplessly over plans, radioed reports, schedule sheet).

FOREWARNED .

United States weather Bureaux, such as those of Messrs
Moore and Gentry, deserve a large slice of credit for keeping
us up-to-dpte on Ihe position and direction of the cyclone.
RCA'S office staff, too, showed strong community spirit, keep-
ing at the ticker till after mid-night as the storm headed for
Haiti. I-

Radio stations played their part by relaying warnings cabled
in'-with added emphasis supplied by a dot-dash introduction.
They further ordered inhabitants of threatened areas to barri-
cade homes, even including instructions on how to set about it..

REFUGE FOR HOMELESS

Haitians will ever be grateful to the U. S. Geodetic Survey
at Cayes, the U.'S. Agricultural Department's rubber station at
Marfranc, and the Scipa centers at Damiens and Cayes for
invaluable help to the hurricane-hit South.

Not only were the local buildings sturdy shelters for hme
homeless but with modern radio equipment, they also maintain-
ed the only communication between the capital and the isolated
towns during and immediately after Hazel.
Unsung heros in line for pur gratitude include. American Am-
bassador Roy Tasco Davis, and the men of the Aircraft carrier
SAIPAN; while a special award goes to Eugene Carri6 who
gawve his two earth-movers and almost his life in the attempt
to rescue victims of the Cazeau flood.

Dears Sir,. '
I understand that you reprint

of this article has provoked
an outburst of abuse and nas-
tiness from one Pickering o[

blication here has naturally
evoked considerable disgust.
I do not know in what spirit
you published my article, but
I assume your good will. Eve-
rything I wrote is quite sin-
cere and represents my im-
pressions of Haiti and Hai-
tians over my short stay of
three weeks. Oddly enough,


nobody here saw anything of-

fensive in it. It is one in a se-
ries I have published on va-
rious Caribbean coun t r i e s
which have been very popu-
lar. There are more to coma
on Haiti and I am preparing a

Haiti or anywhere else are corn
pletely unmalicoious and repre-

anybody, as Mr. Pickering so
stupidly suggests, By who, ind-

Mr.- Pickering's silly article
has made everybody laugh b.-
cause it is so childish, rude
and generally fatuous. Also the
poor fellow writes the most
grotesque and comical English.

servatIve paper and with all
its faults, maintains a fairly

Voodoo is a natural religion. It
does not differ, in its origins,
from other religious faiths.
And, like other religions, it
is filled with mystery and mi-
racle. As in all true religion,
the dignity of belief can be
traced on the face of every
worshiper.*

.Mrs. Garrett, basing he:
comments on a recent visit to
Haiti, states that within Voo-
doo services can be found ma-

as an experience of 'a simpli-

Editor

letter in reply to Pickering, I
will send you a copy -in a cou-
ple of days but first I must
give .Le National, the chance
to do the decent thing. I am
not a professional journalist,
and write largely for my own
amusement, although I was li-
terary critic for the aTimes.
Literary Supplement. That is
perhaps why the article may
have offended. In the context:
of the .book I iam preparing,
where many other aspects of
Haiti notably Haitinn' literatu-
re and painting .-ire dClscusse',
as well as personalities. I .iu
not think it wotild have offend-
ed as my whole section on H.ai
ti is such as to increase inte-
rest in Haiti, I think to make
one want to visit the country.
Again sir, I would be very
grateful to you if you could
let me have those cuttings.

SYMPA'PHY FROM IKE

On hearing that a powerful

wish to extend to the Haitian
people my deepest sympathy.
I am informed that Ambassa-

about obtaining all oid i '-

damage and in relief work If
there are other ways in which
the United States can be of
help, please let the Ambassa-
dor know.
Please accept my most sin-

of the Haitian people and for
the health of your Excellency.

Jeremie After Hazel


Front our Corespondent
When the news that hurri-
cane Hazel had struck Jer6mo
reached Port-au-Prince on Weil
nesday morning, there was
consternation in the city. Ru-
mours flew wild, and certainly
a number of people were c-au-
ed unnecessary suffe r i n g
through fear that friends and
relations had been killed.
All the more reason therL-
fore, that immediately the lan-I
ing field was reported clear, es
ponsible Ministers should f
up to see what was the real si-
tuation. This Mr. Dorsinville,
Minister ot Labour and Pub'!c
Health and Mr. Luc Propheti,
Minister of the Irnterior i0ii ...
Thursday morning.
The flight, in a DC of the
Haitian Air Force, was a de-
pressing one. Taking off front
the flood stricken area roun.l
the Capital, the aircraft found
its way through lowering
clouds along the gulf de la
Gonave.
The first sight of the moun-
tains in the south was not too
oppressing : a great n e w
suspension Bridge near Jere-
mie appeared intact
But as the plane proceede]
westward more and more fal-
len trees began to appear, as
if one was passing over a gi-
gantic logging camp. Then o:n.-
realised that all the forests
covering the hillsides h a dI
been devastated by the hurri-
cane. The trees everywhere;


torn, twisted and hurled duw'n
the slopes. At this point th2
roofs wgrestill firmly fixed
on the few huts and houses
that appeared to the view.
But soon we came to ham-
lets and small townships where
this was no longer so. Gutted
churches and ruined public
buildings stood in their midst
whilst round these the numL-
rous houses of the inhabitants
were in various states of del-
apidation. Sometimes whole
areas consisted only of deiineat
ed quadrangles like S(luareS uni
a chess board, where houses
had once been. There were
great gashes in the hillsides due
to erosion amounting to lands-
lides, and the sea for aboutt a
mile out w a s clotted with
chocolate-coloured mutd and

Passing round the tip of the
peninsular over Dame-Mad-ic
and Anse d'Hainault we virci-
'ed north again and landed on
Jeremnie alrstrij.
JEREMIE
The journey down to th-
town was made through col-
lapsed peasants' houses while
the inhabitants squatted about
the ruins drying their clothes
in the sun with a stunned look
upon their faces. They told
us the wind had begun to blo.v
about 6 p m on Monday night.
that the houses had begun to
fall about ten, and that the
hurricane had continued all
night and through much of


SUNL'DAY. OCTOBB lt


The town itself looked as ii
it had suffered a recent aerial
bombardment Some houses had
been endely carved out by the
hurricane; others had fallen
or lost their roofs; very few
escaped damage. It is encourage
ing to note that there has been
no ldss of life or direct severe
injury though the same cau-
not be said of the country di-.-
tricts
Up at the hospital, condi-
tions were bad as part of the
t roof had fallen in; and tha
s prison had a l s o suffered
itIough the prisoners didn't
seem to have been quick
eiiouah to take advantagee of
this since they had been trans-
ferred to the Caserne. This.
indeed being more solidly built
had become their center of
operations. First, a Red Cross
Post was established by Mrs.
Louis Roy, Dr and Mrs Denize,
Claude Martin, Jean Claude

helicopters were flying in the
pitiful wreckage of humanity
which they had picked up from
the countryside. Tn a t e n t
nearby a long queue of villa-
gers were receiving anti-teta-
nus innoculations. Meanwhile.
out on the airport. Mr Boggs
representative of the Ameri-
can Red Cross In Haiti, was
presiding over a mass of me-
dical supplies which were await
dng transport by helicopter
down to the town. Also on the
airport was the blue-grey am-
phlbean belonging to Admiral
Taylor, the American Naval-
Commander in charge of the
Saipan and its attendant heli-
copters.


Towards: evening, the party
re-assembled on the airport
to take off again for P-au-P.
It was a somewhat smaller par
ty now, for a'number of doc-
tors and local in habitants ha.:l
been dropped off. The return
journey w a s uneventful,
although heavy, dark clouds
were gathering over Port-au-
Prince.
The journey to JHrdmie hal]


been a sad one. It had alsa
been an enlightening one. 1.
had proved that some of the
worst reports of the t o w n
were falsely founded In parti-
cular it had shown there was
little physical harm to indivi-
duals But it showed material
damage had been very serious
indeed, and that the situation
in some of the villages a n d
country parts was certainly
far worse than in JMrfmte
itself.
