Mr. Barranson, who has spent
most of his life in Washington,
but speaks perfect French will
be back among old friends when
he takes up his new post there.
But he will still miss Haiti, and
has high praise for the co-opera
tion he received here.
',,Especially, he said from the
religious bodies, such as' the
Oblat Fathers at Cayes, the Sis-
ters of Ste Anne in Port de Pi-
ment and Chardonnikre, Rev. Mc
Connell's Methodists, and the
Church of God of Rev. Hell; and,
of course, Dr. Louis Roy and his
wife, and Mr. Racine who wor-

PAY WEEKLY PLAN
If Employees were paid weekly instead of at the end of
each month, the economic system of our community would
be relieved of many of the cancers that suck its vitality and
block its blood stream, according to one of the most success-
ful and canny commervants on the bord de mer).
Our businessman friend told us he thought the trading in-
terests of Port-au-Prince should accept the weekly payment
plan not only as a major contribution to the welfare of their
employees, but as a PQ injection for their own business.
The clerk who draws a $100 per month pay-check would
be given $25 weekly, if he worked for anybody other than
Scrooge ((the world' most-fabled tight-wad), which would mean
a raise of nearly 10% annually. A further benefit for the
clerk would be the end of-his existence as a creditor-hounded
debtor living on salary not yet drawn. No merchant would
pass up a cash sale and extend credit to the end of the month
if he knew.his customer drew ready money each week.
The sluggish tempo of Haitian business would, be stepped
up considerably by weekly pay-checks, because with the' end
of the universal credit system, stock could be turned over
much more quickly allowing more profit in less time.
Furthermore, instead of being in circulation once a month,
the currency of the capital would be constantly flowing, stunt-
ing the growth of that now-necessary evil, the moneylender,
who has enslaved so many souls with his golden chain.
A serious consideration of the pros and cons will convince
most shrewd and public-spirited "commercants" that there
are albt more reasons for than against paying their employees
weekly insteadd of at the end of the month when the majority
must simply re-distribute salaries to creditors almost al-
ways with a percentage added.

NEED FOR A JOURNALISTS' .CLUB

The need for a Journalists' Club has never been more clear-
ly pointed up than during the past week when 20 journalists
froim tie leading newspapers and press services in Nortah A-
merica spent a day here on their Caribbean cruise aboard the
luxury liaer tOcean Monarch.
On arrival in port the visiting newsmen were whisked off
by the Tourist Office for sightseeing trips around the city. and
to the mountains of Kenscoff, with luncheon at Le Perchoir
thrown in by fhe Tourist Officials who footed the bill along
with, the Hotel Association, the two Associations of Tourist
Shops and Tour Agents.
But, though we are sure they had a wonderful time and we-
re entertained %comme il faut., it would perhaps have added
a great deal to the visiting writers' understanding and appre-
ciation of this country if local journalists had been on hand
to welcome their Northern confreres, and had, taken them to
a friendly club-room, where they would be able to meet and
exchange ideas.
As journalists the world over speak the same language the
country and the visitors would have benefited from this get-
together.
The press is one of the most important factors in the
the development of the community, and newsmen especially
are apt to judge a country by the health of its newspapers.
These reporters probably left Haiti with the impression that
there was no press.
If there had been a club where journalists met to have con-
ferences, discuss news-worthy events and to profit from each
other's association, a delegation of journalists could have been
appointed from the club members to meet and help entertain
the out-of-town confreres*.

Dear Max:
. Thank you for translating and
publishing my little article on
*THE SHORT STORV IN HAI
TI) which appeared in Haiti-
Sun's January 10th edition. The-
re was one error, however. The
last paragraph should have
read: eRobert Theard is a gifted
and sensitive story teller, and
those who can translate it, will
enjoy his sympathetic and under
standing picture of the pathetic
little Haitian houseboy called
Bismark.
It is indeed gratifying to know
that you confirm my opniorn- re-
garding Robert Theard's unusual
talent as a writer, and if there
is to be any sort of award for
the best short story of 1954 in'
Haiti. I think you might also
agree with me that Mr. Heard
should'be recommended for his
outstanding short story cBIS-
MARK, which appeared several
months ago in qOPTIQUEP, one
of Haiti's newest and most hite-
resting literary magazines.
Sincerely yours, ,

and-wife team pulling together instead of apart as so may young cou-
ples are doing these degenerate days. There seems to be no respect
left for the sanctity of the home or the sacredness of the marriage
bond. It must be the bad example set by these movie actors and ac-
tresses. Some-one should rise up and denounce them, then perhaps
those things I just mentioned would be respected and people would
live happily ever after as they used to do. People who get married, I
mean.
I keep wandering away from my subject all the time. But you must
forgive me. You see this is the first essay I ever wrote.
As I said, I had known them etc, but I had never thought of making
a study of them until Spencer gave me the idea. That's what you get
when you read good books, ideas. Try it sometime.
When I determined to make a study of them I decided to do some-
thing about it. So I went up to Freres, you know, that place where
they live and raise chickens. When I arrived I noted that they were
delighted to see me. Later I decided that this was hardly worth noting
as it was not unusual. People are always delighted to see me.
Just 'in front of their house I noticed a small stone pillar with a-
triangular gadget on top of it. 'What is that Jean?, I asked Mr. Des-
quiron.
-That,is a sun dial:* he replied ,it tells the time of day'-
I was amazed. What will people think up next?
-How does it work?, I asked.
He explained, showing me how the triangular gadget throws a sha-
dow on the lines cut in the top of the pillar.
-I can see thatit works fine in the day-time. I said -but how do you
tell the time at night?.
He smiled. -That's easy Mr. Grant. we use a flpshlight.u

MADELEINE SYLVAIN BOUCHEREAU, CHAMP

Our Guest Editorialist, for last
week, Mrs. Max Bouchereau, needs
no introduction to our readers at
home or abroad. The brilliant wvo-
man leader has touched most ol
the world's capitals in her travels.
Her lectures have sketched the na-
tional tableau before the audien-
ces of two continents, and with
her pen she has gained interna-
tional recognition for her country,
its people, and its culture.


Born the second of Jurist-author-
poet-diplomate, Georges Sylvain's
four amazing daughters, Madelei-
ne's career" i.s nothing short of bril-
liant in fields that bring honor to
members of the stronger sex, and
to her goes the distinction of
being the leading element in the
feminist movement in Haiti. With
a lawyer's degree from the Univer-
sity of Haiti, she drafted projects
of legislation for the political and

An expedition to locate the re-
mains of the Santa Maria, the
flagship of the tiny fleet with
which Christopher Columbus dis
.covered America in 1492, will lea
ve Miami in early April.
Details of the exploration,
'which will be centered on Lem-
onade reef off the north coast
of Haiti, were disclosed Monday
by Edwin A. Link, chairman of
Link Aviation. Inc, from. his of-
fices in Binghamton, N.Y.
A veteran of successful sear-
cches for sunken Spanish marine
treasures in the Florida Keys,
Link, who is due here next
month, said the search will last
two or three months.


The industrialist said as a re-
sult of research by navigators of
recently uncovered documentary
material, 'we have pinpointed
the location of the Santa Maria
to an -area of a few miles.,
Link emphasized that none of
the wood frame of the Santa Ma-
r'ia would hate lasted these 462
years.

But he said there should be

s%%ords, bits of metal and uten-
Fils embedded in the coral rock.
In fact, he said, ewe probably
will find the remains of a dozen
other ships that were sunk there
several hundred years ago.

lats qui seront obtenus, sans delai, sont visible deja, meme pour ceux
qui sont atteipts de myopic sur les questions 6eonomiques: augmenta-
tion *de la vitesse horaire sur une route asphaltee, usure insignifiante
du materiel roulant, diminution de nla consbmmation de combustible
imported. Si P'on veut consid'erer ces trois points de vue, on realise de
suite quelle norme economie de temps, d'argent et d'effdrts ph.i-
ques cette voie magnifique apportera au travail national. Je ne puis
dans ce bref apergu, exposer les nombreux chapitres de profits reperes
sur la mime affaire, j'ai moi-meme calculd que cela representerait
Vingt-Coq nouveaux millions de Gourdes (Gdes. 25.000.000) pour la
circulation monetaire chaque annie, mais meme si la place me man-
que, comment laisser de e6te ce que sera la route pour i'activit6 qui et
peut- tre le plus bel avenir de notre commerce, le Tourisme. Imagine-
t-on le nombre d'dtrangers qui voudra voir la nature tropical dans
toute sa splendeur, les champs de canoe de LUogAne, les aimablcs
viles de la c6te, Grand-Goive l'appauvrie, qui renaitra A la vie; j'y
vois dejL une belle pompe ESSO, et une auberge de la route modcrne
et outillee. Pourquoi ,pas? 1:'nergique Petit-Goive, la paisible Mira-
goine. Ensuite les voyageurs fer6nt une petite montee vers St-Michel
du Sad, passeront A Virgile avant d'atteindre Ie. Vieux Bourg d'Aquin
et Aquin la silencieuse qui sortira de son silence, dcans cette riche et
populeuse nature du Sud, les petites villes sont si nombreuses qu'on a-
'imnpression qu'elles se touchent, puis enfin la belle plage de St-Louis,
uine des plus belles du Pays, avec son sable blanc, ses Islets boises et
mysterieux au point qu'ils laissent la sensation de loger encore dc la
flibuste.
En rep-enant la route, les tourists aimeront caresser des yeux les
rizieres de la plaine de St-Louis, en passant un peu plus loin sur le
pont de Cavaillon, ils ne manqueront pas de remarquer, compete tend
des dimensions et de la relativity des choses que Cavaillon a sun
~Washington Bridge-. Tout ceci se passera en trois heures puisque
c'est sur de asphalte frais que nous allons glisser pour entrer aux
Cayes qui sera remain ce qu'elle doit itre, la belle Capitale provin-
<'tiale, digne de son. titre de Capitale, A. cause du travail de ses vaillants
ills, de ses laborieux paysans, du devouement de son clergy oblat et
des Missions Evangeliques.
C'est tout pour aujourd'hui, ai prochaine fois nous partirons des
Cayes pour Jfermie, car que mes braves co-citadins ne s'inquietent pas,
surtout qu'ils ne boudent pas, la route ira jusqu'iA eux, qu le PreMi-

ses responsabilites, qu'un Pays est un tout economique et qu'il est le

torney-at-law) and their ,son
Frank of California. They drove a
jeep to Jacmel, needing no guide,
saw the countryside voters waiting
in line at the polls on January

passes that have balked so many
voyagers, and arrived in Jacmel
with passengers they rescued on
the road from cars that were wen

Jacmel journal, visited the hospi-
tal, stayed over night, and jeeped
back to their suite at Hotel Villa
Creole, declaring that the Haitian
People were delightful to know,
and that the natural beauty upon
which they had feasted their eyes
during their too short visit called
for a long winter vacation here
next December.

Clean-cut, dynamic Vic Lampson
: manager of .Firestone, passed on
the announcement of his home of-
fice week that the sensational tube
less tire developed by the com-
pany is standard equipment on
many of the 1955 automobiles.
Firestone, the first company
to supply the puncture-proof ti-
re to manufacturers for 1954 mo-
dels, continued thier progress
this year producing the aFires-
tone Deluxe Champion for re-
placements on any cars now on
the road.
Raymond C. Firestone, Execu-
tive Vice President of the Fires-
tone Tire & Rubber Company, in
releasing the development of the
new tires, stated:
cThis new Firestone tire is the
first tubeless tire specifically en-
gineered to provide extra safety
and comfort for motorists dri-
Sving modern automobiles with
power steering, power brakes,
and high-horse-pbwer engines.)

This newest of tubeless tires

motorists on the 1955 model cars
of major automobile manufactu-

the tire will not squeal on sharp
curves and turns, and will provi-
de increased safety and comfort
for motorists who will be dri-
ving cars with power steering,
power brakes and high-horsepo-
wer engines. In the above pictu-
re. Raymond C. Firestone, Exe-

points out how the segmented,
flexible tread will provide far
greater traction and a quieter
and more comfortable ride on
all kinds of road surfaces.
principles giving a glide-like ri-
de over rough and irregular
roads. Tire squeal in turns and
sudden stops has been virtually
eliminated by its special design.
It runs silently at anygspeed.
Oustanding safety features of
the new tread design is the
great increase in traction' provi-
ded by the ingeniously arranged
skid resistors. There are 70 per-
cent more skid resistors, resul-
ting in greatly increased trac-
tion and car control. The skid re-
sistors, running diagonally,
not only improve 'forward trac-
tion but also guard against side
skidding.
By varying the distance bet-
ween the tread design elements,
Firestone engineers have been
able to silence the noise of the ti
re on straight runs and in conr

Mrn


Luxe Champion, motorists canI
expect all the advantages of tu-
beless tires including puncture
protection, blowout resistance,
greater strength and economy
plus more skid resistance, and
snow, ice and wet pavement
traction than in earlier tires, ac-
cording to Mr. Firestone.
By designing a tread that is
more streamlined and flatter
than in earlier models, Firesto-
ne has improved riding quali-
ties in this new tire. Because
the tread conforms better to the
road surface, small obstructions
in the road are enveloped in the
tread rubber and bumps are
hardly felt. After going over
such obstructions, the tire does
not bounce.
Tubeless construction, use of
newly developed tread rubber
compounds, and the develop-
ment of new rayon tire cord fa-
brics are the reasons the new
Firestone DeLuxe Champion has
from 25 to 30 per cent more
strength than comparable tires
now,in use as standard equipment
on automobiles.
The new tire, with the new
tread disign is available current
ly from the United States. Fi-
restone factories in other coun-
tries are making tubeless tires
in other designs, and will soon
convert to the new tread.
