Further Details
Abduction
Mr. Leandre Daniel. proprie-
tor of the ,Magic Cine-, refused
to make a statement to the press
concerning the abduction of his
son last week. because, he said,
the matter already has been pla
ced in the hands of tle po.Re.
The tubbyish, young lad was
reportedly forced \o enter a .lar
geo. black- sedan, while on his
way to school and carried off to
a remote part of the suburbs
where he Wvas held captive until
his escape some (ime later.
' T.,e boy is said to 'have suffe-
red temporary loss of memory,
bu' retains a vague picture of
soree kind of ritual,. He appa-
renitly was not harmed physical-


ly, though he was roughly hand
led and supposedly drugged.
Mr. Daniel, in refusing details
to the press, declared that he did
not wish to publicise an incident
that might convey an erroneous
and unfavourable impression of
the country.

By. J.M.
Having absorbed the highly optimistic account cribbed .from
the AgricultuiraL bulletin and polished by the imagina-
tion of the aSunn, allow me to set your readers right about 4 ti's Eden, (Sun January 23)
Seguin is so ve.-dant, unspoiled and fertile that everyone who
,.isits the area seems .to overlook the very obvious obstacles, in-
dulging in visions of an apple-bearing, up-to-date small town -
a cross between Utopia anal Paradise.'
But, in spite of the bounty with which nature blesses the re-
gion, most of the land is State owned. Only 94 hectares are attrac-
tive enough to lure buyers. Of the 21 families that own this land,
a mere 5 live in Seguin throughout the year.
Most of the population migrates to the mountainous, isolated
Southern area (covering parts of Marigot and Saltrou) from
thehr permanent homes in Kenscoff, Belle Fontaine, Robin
Sand the Jacmel Valley during March and April, November, De-
cember and January. And, what is more, they do not devote their
time to the culture of pears, peaches, plums or other Edenlike
Iruit. The products u-e far more likely to be maize, beans cof-
fee and vegetables.
ROCKY GOAT PATH
The climate is ideil for fruit growing but thie time that the
shifting population of the legion spends in Seguin does not war-
rant the lengtuLy and painstaking operation of orchard building.
Noth;ne hut drinkable, easy-to-reach water will induce any of'
the families now living in Seguin during a part of each year to
become permanent residents, and an ,influx of immigrants-
would be greatly slowed down even if there were water by the
precipioLLs goat-paihs which they would have to traverse.
It is true that Kenscoff mrarchan'ds' trek over the peaks to
Seguin to buy the fine quality agricultural produce, but they
seldom stay longer than a few hours in the lonely, untracked
wilderness.
On the other hand, the few hardy men who brave the discom-
fort and make the area their home, have been richly rewarded.
Some of them, employing scientific farming methods have obtai-
ned excellent results. The soil and climate are among the most
fertile in the republic and the experimental station started the-
re a few years ago by the Department of Agriculture has pro-
ven that fruits and -vegetables may be grown there which are
so far practically unknown in Haiti. So it is probable hat with wa-
ter piped in and a road opened Seguin may become a true Pa-
radise.
WATER SCHEME TO BE DISCARDED
Agricultural Department officials initiated a scheme for water
supply and irrigation, working in co-operation with SCISP. But
Hurricane Hazel has so limited available f u n d s t h a t
the plan for wiping water into Seguin from a spring some miles
a'.vay is to be discarded.

Founded 1950

HAITIAN DANCE SACRED OR STAGE
Maya DEREN
AIN September 1947 I disembarked in Haiti,
for an eight month stay, with eighteen motley
pieces of luggage; seven of these consisted of 16
millimetre motion picture equipment, of which
three were related to sound recording for a film,
and three contained equipment for still photogra
phy. Among my papers I carried a certificate of
a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for creat-
ive work in the field of motion pictures. (as
distinguished from documentary film projects)..
Also among my papers was a carefully conceived
plan for adfilm in which Haitian dance, as purely
a dance form, would be combined (in montage
principle) with various non-Haitian elements..
Today, In September 1951 (four years and three Haitian trips later)
as [ write these last few pages of the book, the filmed footage (contain-
ing more ceremonies than dances) lies in virtually its original condition
in a fireproof box in the closet.., and the elaborate design for the
montaged film is somewhere in my files, I am not quite sure where.
(That is unimportant for a new plan of editing is necessary, and this
is my next immediate 'project)... I had begun as an artist, as one wiu.-
would manipulate the elements of a reality into a work of art in the
image of my creative integrity; I end by recording, as humbly and
accurately .as I can, the logics of 'a reality which had forced me to
recognize its integrity, and to abandon my manipulations... My original
premise (had been) destroyed once I realized that the dcnce could
not be considered independently of the mythology,.
[I hope that I will be forgiven for the indelicacy of quoting from the
preface of my own book, DIVINE HORSEMAN, I do so because now
some seven years pfter I struggled in solitude with this problem
of Haitian Voudoun dance in or out of the religious context, and made
the decision to abandon, temporarily, my artistic intentions, to interr-
apt my creative direction and the momentum of my career as an
-avant-garde, film-maker and to embark upon a study and a labor
which has introduced a permanent state of psychophrenia into my pro-
feassional life, I find that this very problem (the theatrical presentation
of.,religious dances) is the concern of many people, as well as of
the'Bureau of Tourism, and even of a special study governmental and
ethnographic commission. IA is reassuring to have this objective con-
firmation ofithe fact that I was not merely imagining things but that
there really was and is a great big toro back of the horns of'that
dilemma on which I found myself some seven years ago. And I can
only hope, for those who now find themselves in that awkward posture,
thet tiy will be as satisfied with their decision 7 years hence as I am
with mine. .
I must confess that, at that time, there was a certain clarity to the
Elements of thie situation. There was 1, Voudoun and Voudoun dances;
2, popular and secular dances such as carnival, Ra-ra, and meringue;
S3, here were the sophisticated social dances in town; 4, there were
*. people who didn't care much for dancing altogether: and 5, there wei'e
'people who particularly disliked the Voudoun dances. When my obs-;
ervations led me somewhat reluctantly to the conviction that Voa-
doun dances were an integral, and functional part of Voudoun ritual
and were truly meaningful only within that context, my attention turn-
ed to an evaluation of that larger context Voudoun itself.
This I esteem to be a religion of major stature, rare poetic vision
and artistic expression, with a pantheon of divinities which, in astro-
nomical terminology, coul.i be called a constellation of first magnitude.
Like all religions, it is a coherent system of beliefs governing all phases
of human concern. It includes an ordered concept of cosmic origins,
cosmography and the .na.ture of man, his soul, of divitiny and the relat
Sion between these as well 4s of man to cosmic forces, will, destiny
and morality, -and it incorporates these poneepts into traditional rites
and practices which reaffirm these principles. It is concerned with the
proper spiritual evolution of human beings from childhood on. and
these gradations are ritually marked by initiatory ceremonies. It is
concerned, as well, for the physical and practical, as well as moral
welfare of its adherents, nnd incorparates a vast body of herbal, phy-
sical and psychosomatic therapies which reveal, to serious analysis,
a very sound knowledge in these fields.
Profoundly democratic in -nature (since even the poorest man in-
herits the -ancestral Loa, and may worship effectively in modest famni-
ly circles, without obligation to a houngan or priest), it is generally
consistent, in its major principles throughout Haiti, in spite of the
lack of any autocratic centralization and the consequent development
I of secondary variations from one locale to another. In this large reli-
gious scheme, the dances appear as only one of the many forms of act-
ive devotion, and every detail of the dance is determined by its funct-
ikn in the larger context: In other words, these are sacred dances and
Part of the religious context
I am not entirely clear as to what the relatively new and current
Haitian category aFolklore, comprehends. I have always understood
the folklore of a people to consist of a motley, unrelated collection
of beliefs, legends, songs, customs, etc. In the United States the folk-
lore would include the kentucky hill billy songs but not the hymns,
the tales of Jack the Bear but not the Indian myths of creation, thc
Georgia street shouts but not the spirituals, and all the various and
/ Stmdry ideas about lightning striking twice, walking under ladders, and
throwing salt over the left shoulder etc. In Haiti it would include Ra ra
and Mardi-Gras, but not Yanvalou which is a dance of prayer and
Btplication. In these terms the moral obstacle to taking the Vofldoun
dances out of their religious context, to be presented as an independent
entertainment is considerable.
One of the most magnfiant things about Voudoun, however, is that
it does not rely upon the vagaries of men's moral judgement; it has a

THE FOLKLORE TROUPE

The Haiti Sun
Port-au-Prince
Haiti

Gentlemen:

It frightens me to think that
I almost missed the magnificent
dancing of your National Folk-
lore Troupe directed by Andre
Narcisse, during my brief visit
to Haiti this winter. I had, of
course, read about it in your
,newspaper and had put it down
on my list of things eta seev,
along with the Citadel, and the
sunset from ILe Perchoir.a

But there are so many things
to see in Haiti! It was not until
my very last night on the island
that I finally got around to the
Theatre Verdure and an aesthe
tic experience I shall never for-
get. The dancing especially
that of the inimitable M. Narcis-
se is always satisfying and of
ten downright thrilling; there is
not one single instant wasted
marking time; and the costu-
mes, setting, and musical accom
paniment have been selected
with the most exquisite taste.
M. Narcisse's interpretation of
the Spider Dame was my favo-
rite, but I would hae gladly
paid the Admission fee of three
gourds twice over to experience
any one of the selections presen-
ted.


I'm writing this letter to
alert the American tourists -so
that they won's make the mista-
ke I did of putting off the Thea-
ftre de Verdure till it's too, late
for them to go more than once.

The next time I come to Port-
au-Prince I shall immediately
find out what nights the Troupe
is dancing and attend every sin-
gle performance. I hope, when
the dancers come to New York
(as they inevitably will) that
they will let me know in advan-
ce so that I can tell my friends.
*
With congratulations,

Ga- j~~


For centuries men-have cl ..-..! jungles v :th fire. But this method also
destroys the humus in the soil arid jhu urea ',on becomes a barren waste-
land. What's more, many commercially-valuable trees ore also destroyed.
Today, .however, fertile crop-producing areas can be cleared with
Caterpillar track-type Tractors.

One proven Method is.to drag a heavy .ship anchor
chain in a loop between twvo or more tractors. The
',. density of growth and diameter of the trees indicate
'' ) the number of machines and size of chain required.
S When sufficient tractive effort is applied, trees and
underbrush come crashing'to earth, with roots dis-
lodged and exposed.
4 After commercially valuable timber is recovered,
I bulldozer or root-rake-equipped tractors pile the
.'* debris in windows for burning.
-:5" The loot rake clears debris but allows fertile top-soil
~ to pass through the rake teeth and remain in place

Finally, heavy tillaae disks, drawn by track-type
tractors, chop and mix any remaining small roots
with the topsoil.
Thus, with the proper-sized Caterpillar track-type
Tractors and tools, dense jungle ean be transformed
"- into fertile fields for crops or grazing.
____ We'll be pleased to supply you with more detailed
J r information on Caterpillar land clearing equipment.

GEN. MAGLOIRE IS REALLY
A SCHOOLMASTER AT HEART
FROM THE WASHINGTON DAILY NEWS, WEDNESDAY,
JANUARY 26, 1955.
By Andrew Tully


The way things are these days,
it's a wonder the world's alleged
statesmen haven't made Gen.
Paul Magloire illegaL
For ten. Magloire, the Negro
President of Haiti who arrives
here today fovors books over ato
mic bombs. More precisely, his
government is spending 13z per
cent of its budget on education
-the largest education budget,
percentage-wise, of any country
in the world.
To be sure, Haiti's illiteracy
rate is still estimated at 90 per
cent. But thanks to its big, good-
natured President. Haiti now

has more than 100 more schools
than it had when he was elected
in 1950. Better still, Gen. Magloi
re has made learning so attracti-
ve in his country that there are
hir-ee times as many applicants
for the school rolls as facilities
can accommodate.
FOR THE PEOPLE
In an area of the world where
heads of government sometimes
rule only to fatten their own poc
ket-books, Gen. Magloire has fat
tened the ordinary guy's.
Before he took office, Haiti
was a country of too little and
too poor land and toon many peo-
ple it has 3,500,000 people in
an area the size of Maryland. To
day Haiti's farmers are begin-.
ning to make a buck, and soon
they'll make more money and the
people will eat more food.
That's because of Gen- Ma-
gloire's pronouncedd Mahl-wahr)
ambitious agricultural program.
Its main-spring is Haiti's $21.
000,000 cLittle TVA* in the Ar-
tibonite Valley, which by next
year wil irrigate 100,000 acres
of land. Already the pilot irri-
gation project at Bois Dehors
is paying off: farmers who used
to net only $10 a year and all
but starve are now clearing $200
and S300 a year.
ATTACK ON YAWS
Gen. Magloire has been just
as concerned with his people's
health. When he took office mo-
re than 65 per cent of the popu
nation was afflicted with ,the

fr The Rockj Path To Wedded Bliss
A glance at the rocky path to wedded bliss is often ,
enough to deter lhe hardiest of spirits among our peasant
class, especially when the prospective grooms are amette
au courant) by .sadder and wiser pioneers of the church-
door trail.
The most devoted of lovers would d be deterred by such
tales as the one Ti-Jean has to tell.
Ti Je4ua made a living of sorts in his uncle's barbershop
in Petion-Ville. lie lived with his uncle (who is also his
rcparrairn, and is under suspicion of being his father) and
was accepted as one of the family.
The 25-year-old lad (as is the way with the sex) yielded
to temptation and was soon the father to be of a ccgelitillen
mademoiselle's first-borri.
This apparently was accepted With resignation.
1But Ti-Jean was not content with this. He wished to mar
ry the girl (especially after a talk with her gimlet-eyed
papa) and set about making arrangements.
This was' the last straw as far as his uncle -as concer-
ined, and Ti-efan was soon sitting on his luggage in the
road with no job and no bed.
((If you're old enough to get married)) his uncle argued
you're old enough to fihd a home to put your wife it.a
Eventually the soft-eyed little barber was thrown on the
mercy of his wife's family who fed him and allowed him
to share their daughter's bed until he could find a job.

U.S. Engineer Praises
Haitian Architecture
On Friday morning Haiti Sun
had the pleasure of a visit from
Mr. Carl 0. Thoren, retired Anme
rcan Engineer, w h o arrived
with his wife from Puerto Rico,
on January llth. The couple, ori
ginally from Hot Springs, Arkan
sas, have lived in South Ameri-
ca since 1949 when they left New
-Orleans, for Venezuela. The',
tr-relled to reside in Puerto Ri-
Cio, and becoming interested in
aitian history, they finally de-
cided to come to Haiti, for an
extended visit.
Engineer Thoren is quite at
ease with the French-speaking
people of Haiti. for during world
War I he served as interpreter
for the U.S. Army. Of Scandina-
vian origin, he also speaks Swe-
dish, and commands the Castellano.
Mr. and Mrs. Thoren are stop
ping at the Star Pension at Pe-
tion-Ville, and their plans to re-
main in Haiti until May will al-
low them to become acquainted
with the country. Said the vete-
ran engineer: '.From what I can
see, Haiti is coming into its own,

Pdt. MAGLOIRE'S VISIT
STIRS MEMORIES OF A
FAMOUS PHILADELPHIAN
FROM THE PI-IILADELPHrA
INQUIRER*
The visit of President Paul. E
Magloire of Haiti to the United
States reminded a member of
the Haitian Embassy of the fact
that the foundation of one of Phi.
lalelphia's greatest private fortu-
nes Nvas laid in trade with Haiti
late in the 18th. and early in the
19th century.
Stephen Girard, America's
first private banker and founder
of the Girard Estate, made his
first trip to Haiti from Philadel
phia then a city of 24000 in
1776 in a ship called the Lajeu
ne Babe" of whikh he was half-
ovner and master.
Girard was the son of a French
Port Captain and he made his
first voyage to what is now Hai-
.ti as'a Cabin boy when he was
'only 14 years old. Within the
first nine years, he made nine
voyages and in 1773 was licen-
sed as a master.
A series of shipping disasters
which cost him. heavily during
tie early days of the American
Revolution caused Girard to gi-
ve up his sea-ventures and esta-
blish himself in Philadelphia as
a trader, specializing in trade
with Haiti.
By 1812, when the United Sta
wont to war with Great Bri
tLain, Girard'r wealth was so gre
Rt that he was able to subscribe
$8'000,000 to a $16,000.000 War
Loan for which the Treasury
had a hard time finding bidders.

S HAITIAN DANCE SACRED OR STAGE
SContinued from page 5)
built in system of self protection. It is, in fact, impossible to transplant
aoudoui ritual dance to the stage intact. The sacred act or dance
is addressed to divinity, not to man, and the sense..of such dedicated
action is to serve, not oneself, but the object of one's dedication. It is
consequently characterized by a quality of selflessness and even of de-
personalization. As any performer or theater goer is aware, a com-
peUing effect in created not by the physical steps or movements but
by an indefinable quality in the performer. The beauty of the sacred
dances of Haiti, in my opinion, derives primarily from the spiritual
intensity of the devotion which, as it were, blesses the devotee with a
bety and a power which he could not consciously and deliberately
su. ion and which he loses when he is placed in the opposite situat-
ion:'i the self-conscious display which is the essence of the dance as
a theater form.
There are, also, these facts to be considered: that these dances arc a
form of prayer a meditation of the body and are like all medi-
tations, meaningful primarily to the performer himself as a means of cun
firmation and concentration (usually by repetition); that they reflect
the strongly communal emphasis of Voudoun in that they are designed
for participation, not for audiences, and finally, that Voudoun has a
surprising lack of missionary intent and is not concerned with cou-
verting or convincing nod-believers. In consequence the dances do not
have the most primary requisite of theatrical efficacy, i.e. the exterior
address towards the audience, -1 lo not mean this in the sense of cho-
reographic design but rather that indefinable element: projection.
M' treover the strict specification of traditional movement, absolving
the individual of 'the anxieties of personal 'decision and inspiration,]
the momentum which the dance, begun as a discipline inspiration,
even with reluctance, accumulates in the course of execution, the cu-
riously enlarging, intensifying effect of communal action these are
evidence of the fact that it is not the dancers who create the ritual
but the ritual which creates the dancers. When removed from their
meaningful context, the sacred dances lose not only their spirituall
impact but both the dancer and the dance, as such, are seriously di-
minished.
Does this mean that the visitor to Haiti is to be necessarily deprived
of the truly unique and even exalted experience which I, for my pait,
have -treasured so highly? I do not know. It is true that even when
the sacred dances are diminished in all the ways which I have i-ndicat-
Sed, they are still moving and beautiful. And for that which is lost,.
those who are equipped to do so, may, find a substitute. Lavinia Wil-
liams, for instance, is trying as she put it, to give them sound dance
techniqueto fall back on in the absence of the religious context which,
int he hounfort, supports and inspires them. Undoubtedly, a proper the-
atrical mise-emn-scene' iou]d substitute, in another way, for the loss of
that context. But such-substitutions and transpositions can be success-
ful,only to the degree that those who undertake them are careful not to
minimize what is lost and, what must be replaced. It is difficult indeed
to find a suitable substitute for the sacred.
