more misery among the popular

Thec basin-shaped area bet-

poverty, sickness, and death.

At the luncheon given last week
end in honour of President and
Mine. Magloire by Chicago business
and civic leaders, Walter L. Rice
President of Reynold's Mines urged
U.S. Industrialists to consider Haiti
as a site for business expansion
because of the low corporate taxes,
government guarantees against ex-
propriation, and plentiful supply
of -unspoiled workers.. Rice told
also of the big Bauxite mining pro-
ject underway at Miragoane.
In his address, President Ma-
gloire emphasised Haitian immuni-
ty to Communism, and praised
Pres. Eisenhower's stand against
racial discrimination. 1I believee
that very soon racial discriminat-
ion will be only a bad nightamre,.

POLICY TALKS
Five important questions bea-
ring on the crisis which the tou-
rist shops have, faced during the
past year v were discussed at a
meeting last week in the Cham-
ber of Commerce building.
,'Heading the decisions reached
by the Tourist and Gift Shops
Association was the plan to ask
'Hotels to leave their guests so-
me free time in their schedules
for visits to gift shops.
The discussion also embraced:
the reduction in price of gift ar-
ticles in the other Caribbean
countries, and its effect on local
tourist traffic; the unification
of pert-fume prices in all shops
belonging to the association; inm-
creasing the budget for foreign ad
vertising in cooperation with the
Tourist Office; and suppressing
itinerant merchants who offer
inferior grade articles to tourists.
To combat the low prices pre-
sently prevailing in other Carib-
bean tourist souvenir markets, a
commission was selected to pe-
tition the Finance Department
for a substantial tax reduction.
Another commission was char-
ged with arranging for publicity
with the Tourist Office, while a
further appeal ;ill ask for the
institHition.of an inspection Ser-
vice for articles submitted for sa-
le to tourists.
These matters concluded, the
members of the Association deci-
ded also to subscrbe to a float
for the forthcoming Carnval.

he would finance the candy. When
he laughed, she promptly wrote
down the answer on a sheet of
paper.
From then on ,'she was a mar-
ked little Brahman. Her uncanny
gift developed with practice and
soon hnr demonstrations were
baffling the sages all over India.
Later she moved on to Europe,

Shakuntala took Washington by,

Mathematics professors
and sceptical reporters, anxious
to test the skill t!at had defea-
ted a comptomoter in a Rome
contest the previous year, were
treated to'\a mind-numbing exhi-
bition.
The 20th Root of N.
A master of the arm-long num-
ber. the pretty, dark-eyed girl
from Bangalore- extracted the
fourth, fifth or sixth roots 9f
numbers up to ten digits: Like
a flash she-worked out magic
squares* (in which horizontal,
vertical and diagonal sums are
identical), starting with random
numbers suggested by Pe audi
ence.
Quite Human
But, foy all that, she is quite
humann: She keeps losing gloves,
and never is able to remember an
appointment unless she writes
it down. She even forgets her ro
om number.
Like most number prodigies,
Shakuntala does not know how
she does it. She thinks about-the
numbers and the answers come
in three or four.seconds. Of-
ten she gives the answer as soon
as her questioner has written
down the last digit.
Avoids Discussion.
Though she has studied loga-
rithms, she never uses them.
They confuse her, she says.
Mathematicians suggest that
Shakuntala may have a fantas-
tic memory, big enough' to store
all possible answers to all the
tricks she offers. But this they
say would be a startling feat In
itself, probably as difficult as
doing the computation in her
head. '
Opportunity. ,
The visit of the Indian genius.
will be a great opportunity for
local theaters, schools and colle-
ges, and it is expected that du-
ring her three-day visit, Port-au-
Princiens will see Shakuntala in
action.

SPEED MUST BE CHECKED ON NEW HIGHWAYS
This week took the usual high traffic toll.
All over the republic, human beings are being maimed and
killed by carelessness and speed-crazy approach of the holiday season the death toll will be even high-
er and most of the road accidents may be blamed on speeding.
At the peak of the Summer season last year, the traffic toll
averaged between four and five within the precincts of the"
capital alone.
And, with the improved roads, the temptation to speed is
becoming greater every day.
Last Saturday, on the beautiful wide strip of highway near
Montrouis, where speed is gained without much accellemation,
a camionette overturned into the ditch bordering the highway.
Its occupants were lucky to escape with superficial bruises
and shock.
The driver explained when we arrived on the scene two
minutes after the mishap, that he was travelling at only 35
miles per hour and something funny had happened to the (bar
de directions.
As even mules are not given to travelling this slow on the
new St. Marc road, our guess is that his speed was nearer 135
miles per hour.
Another problem faced on the new highways is the heedles-
sness of pedestrians who frequently race across the street
without paying the least attention to oncoming traffic, which
is usually oncoming at such a rate that a foot on the brake
pedal sends it into a quick somersault.
As it is impracticable to post signs, as is done in some cointr
ies, warning motorists to .Beware of habitants, bourriques, bceufs, et al) a speed limit
should be introduced.
One patrolman with a high-powered motocycle and a sack-
full of ,.contraventionsv entailing a stiff fine, should be enough
to discourage any violations of the speed laws.

People -also danced in the
ecstatic rituals of Dionysus, god
of tree and vine, he who was
twice born. In these dances.the
death and rebirth princi-
ple seen in primitive sacrifi-
cial rites was symbolized, by Di-
onysus. Out of the cyclic dance
concerned with the death of the
god and his rebirth grew Greek
tragedy and comedy.
The Comus, too, sprang from
fertility rites. Before it was trans

other rites, it was a participant's

Y Mr. Pigozzi:
From the viewpoint of manu-
Sfacturers and technicians of
s long-run production cars, the ex
t perience to be gained from track
e and road racing is less impor-
- tant than that provided by tes-
ting grounds.
Question:
13. It takes a great deal of skill
r to handle the powerful, high-spe
ed modern car-much more skill
than is required in driving the
family car Before an airplane
pilot can graduate' to jet flying
he must undergo a period of
training. Some people in auto-
motive circles think the same
measure should be adopted be
fore a driver should be allowed
to handle the more powerful
cars of to-day. Would you favor
such a policy and a special test?
Mr Pigozzi:
The limiting of high top speeds
in favour of quick get-away
seems to be a better and simpler
way to ensure road safety.
Question: .

Mr. Pigozzi:
Substitute ,'Acceleration is

15. What is your opinion about

Mr. Pigozzi:
Taken by and large, this may
be considered a development in

chairman of the board and gene
ral manager of the Simea Motor
Company in France, is receptive
to new ideas. Exceptionally well
read on economic and social ques
tions, he has travelled widely
and is well known hi the United
States where he has many fri-
ends. His Simca ccAronde model
is one of the most popular Eu-
ropean cars and one of the best-
designed on the Continent. Mr.
Pigozzi was born in Italy and
his answers to our questionnaire
represent both French and Ita-
lian viewpoints a cross section
of European, thinking obont au-

We consider this interview as
one of special importance becan
se the Simca company, after its
merger with French Ford, is now
the second largest company in
France. It may only be a ques-
tion of time before Simca is the
largest.

project most Jamaicans had in
mind when they were elevating
Norman Manley to the Chief Mi-
nister's chair.
So it came as no surprise when
our new Chief Minister announ-
ced that, for the next five ye-
ars, the economic emphasis wou-
ld be on agriculture and then
went on to add the Ministry of
Agriculture to his other heavy
chores.
Your President and our Chief
Minister have still another tnte-
rest in common: both have just
paid quick, searching visits to
the United States, seeking new
capital and technical assistance I
for development.
Neither of them went hat in
hand. rather, they have rightly
sought mutual aid from the Great
Republic, stressing the real reci-
procity that will accrue to the
U.S. when our Caribbean econo-
mies are properly strengthened
to withstand the ciren call of
communism.

So Jamaica is spruced up with

sident and they will have many
opportunities, for he will be
cramming nine public appearan-
ces into less than three days.
There will be the expected Sta
te Banquet and reception, and
the Civic Reception in the city.
But in addition, .the President
will fly across the island to the
I tourist city of Mo.tego Bay, open
a new hospital on the famed
north shore, sleep overnight at
Tower'lsle Hotel, make an im-
portant policy speech at the Uni

Tribal Dance.
This ritualistic dancing had the
i 'same import as the tribal dance.
Although animism bad been
.supplanted by a pantheistic reli-
gion, and the old beliefs had de-
veloped new, variegated forms,
the people were still working to-
wards the same ends: fertility
of man, beasts and crops.
Although life in the Greek Ci
ty-States had moved far from
*; the simple ways of the stole age,
in the great lycla and gymnasia,
Dance still had an important and
serious role in the training\of

of the local folk customs,, and
With them their dances, had flo-

us with meagre records of dance.
The writings of a Jesuit priest
indicate that in the years of its
founding, the church encouraged
the primitive and ritual dances,
using them with song in praise
of God.
At times the minor clergy
themselves carried orgyistic dan-
ces and mimes even Into the
Church building. I
These celebrations were a di-
rect survival of the Roman Ka-
lends of January, of Janus, the
two faced, the god of doorways.,
The Bible mentions dancing a
number of times. We may be su-
re that the reference to David
dancing, before the covenant is
no figure of speech, but an al-
lusion to the actual use of rhyth-
mic motion in holy celebration or
holy worship.

SITUATION
IN MAPOU
DESPERATE

(Continued4 from page 1)

malaria Men, women and chil-
dren, paralyzed by the wasting
disease, are unable to work.

In a family of eight, seven
members were afflicted.. Only
the father remained to care for
his family. He explained that he
is unable to work because when
lie is out in the fields there is
no-one to tend his wife and child
Jren.

Many Deaths.

Many deaths are reported. Or-
dinarily industrious men are ei-
ther forced to leave their gar-
dens to tend sick relatives, or
.e themselves made so weak and
listless by illness that they can-
not work. The food problem th'ea-
.ens to become acute.
There is no resident doctor,
it Mapou or house-to-house me-
lical service, by the Public He-
ilth Doctor who visits [he area
once weekly.

Fo Save Community.

Unless prompt measures are
taken, the epidemic could wipe
-it the population of Nan Ma-
pou.
Quick action still can save the
community If the lake is drai
ncd, or sprayed and stocked with
larva-eating fish, not only would
the area be freed from the ill
ness and misery that oppresses
its people, but the prosperity
that they knew before the- cyclo.
ne would return to the village.
