Haiti, as everyqnd knows, is
a hemisphere headquarters for
-voodoo legend and carnival fun.
To warm up for their annual Mar
di Gras, the country folk of Hai-
ti swoop down on Port-au-Prince
every Sunday for weeks before
Lent, parade through the streets
costumed as zombies, jungle de-
vils, werewolves and voodoo pri-
ests. On hand to greet them and
talk shop last .week was the fore-
most. U.S. mbpster-master and-
horror-hawker, New "Yorker Car
toonis't Charles Addams, ,ostensi-
bly on vacation.
As Addams watched with pro-
'tessional interest, a besheeted
zombie stole through the tropical
garden of the Grand Hotel Oloff-
won (which dooks a little like a-
Addtins-designed house). After
'g.g thri'..gh fits paces-incl.-

ORGANIZATION

Mr. Lowell B. MASON senior
member of the Federal Trade
Commission, explained how the
organization operates to city press
men at an Aux Cosaques luncheon
Monday. %.
Mr. Mason, who called here a-
hoard the SS Queen of Bermuda,
i accompanied by his wife and twQ
daughters, was introduced at the
luncheon by Assistant Director of
Tourism, Guy Laraque.
The FTC, said Mr. Mason, is
made up .of 20 judges and five
members. Its primary aim is the
investigation of business, food and
false advertising, breaking mono-
polies and stabilising economies.
Brazil Inquiry
Just before, this trip the com-
mission completed a Brazil coffee
investigation and recommended a
number of alterations in the New
York sock exchange.
The judges of the commission
are not intested in what Brazilli
.ns do, Mr, Mason explained, they
ire concerned with what Americ-
ains may do to -rigs coffee prices.
:.. Mason who loves to -talk
Situp, ,aid insiL "big businessnica
I have been victims of their inquiry
ing judges at some time.
Calls On Ambassador -
His father, William E. Mason of
Illinois led the fight in the Sena-
te 1898-1902 to have the first Ne-
gmo Post Master elected.
Mr. Mason called on the U. S.
Ambassador, Roy Tasco Davis-
his neighbour in Washington
I tbut, he disclosed they had never
met before) Monday morning. The
Ambassador left his sick bed to
welcome him.
Asked his impressions of Haiti,
the jovial, sympathique, FTC
man said he thinks Haiti's great-
est reclame, is her smiling faces
reflecting the happiness a n d
friendliness of everyone.
During his visit, the Masons
were shown the sights. by Carl

Addams appeared totally wors-
ted, but a few days later he show-
ed up in his modern Manhatan
apartment, seemingly alive and
whole. Said he, cryptically: "I
wish I could have stayed for it
all but I had to leave.'



First Honduras

AMahogany Arrived

Last Week


The first shipment of mahoga-
ny of the Honduras species arriv-
ed here from Panama aboard the
.Oristobal. last week.
Dave James who is handling
the importation for the mahogany
manufacturers Company said that
thd forests of Haiti are becoming
so' few and large planks are so
scarce that the supply of raw -ma-
terial for the big mahogany bowlsI
is not sufficient to meet the de-
mand.
This is an effort to keep the
stead; supply for mahogany cxp-
.ort and keep the thousands of
workers employed in petitess in-
dustries, at their benches. -
What he termed a 'trial import
atipn of mahogany. is proving
quite satisfactory, Mr. James said.
The price varies little from
local grown wood, and importing
will help to preserve our fast di-
miniishing forests.

I PRESIDENT MAGLOIRE'S TOUR GAVE COUNTRY
KING SIZE BOOST

S When the President and Mme. Magloire stepped ashore
Thursday from the HMS <(Triumphs, they ended not merely
a 6,000 mile goodwill visit to three countries but also a diplo-
matic mission of invaluable benefit to Haiti.
In a brief three-week tour of the United States, Canada and
SJamaica, President Paul Magloire and his gracious First La-
dy have given the republic more favorable publicity than
S..thousands of touristic pamphlets and advertisements over
a period of years.
SAnd their visit has done more to win the goodwill and
* sympathy of neighboring peoples than any politichi agreem-
2 ents or diplomatic representations ever could have done.
I. In a democratic country there is often more to be gained
!: ,-;by capturing the imagination of the population than by poli-
tical cententesi.
'' Our big, good-natured president looks and acts the demo-
cratic r6le in addition to carrying out a progressive policy.
I 'On the record of his accomplishments the populations of the
i.- countries he visited already were predisposed towards him.
i.: The personal. qualities of the Chief of State and Mine. Ma-
"',.'gloire completed the conquest.
,, CHAUFFEURS POINT OUT BAD HABIT
.. A group of chauffeurs called at our office this week to
'i.. point out a bad habit developing in the taxi trade.
'i t Said the Chauffeurs: some drivers when they are hired by
a tourist for the evening or day, arrive at the hotel at the
. i: appointed hour with a relation, in the front seat.
.Nk The tourist, however amicable, does not care to have'Mrs.
i Chauffeur, sister-in-law and a distant cousin joy-riding at his
0. expense, the taxi drivers said.
P, ^. dd, they asked us to point out, when a tourist hiresa car
tht-im
,:. the car belongs to him.

A SILENCE, HilOSPITAL '
-' As Mardi Gras gets underway this, weekend, and all lo~al
l followers of the Carnival King set out to shatter the tyrran-
ou9 laws of convention, it will be a time of unhampered gaiety
.. for the revellers.
But for the dangerously ill the noise will be 'harmful, amid,
,' perhaps, even fatal.
0- Eve. in ordinary times, the hospital zones of the capital are
ignored. -
S The little signs that command, Silence, h6pital do not
;, mean very much. The daily stream of traffic that roars past
.. the nation'S hospitals disregards them entirely.
The century-old, ivy covered cAsile Francais* would be
'.. a perfect rest home if the camion drivers who come by long
After twelve to pick up their girlfriends in the. neighhour-hood
were less fond of using their horns.
also d e t r a c t from .he effectiveness of the beautiful
hospital, flawlessly operated by the < the Sisters report that rarely does a'motor-cycle rider pass
the gates without stoppirfg and racing the engine for histrio.
nics while he engages a fetching damsel in conversation.
SNoise can kill. There are patients in the hospitals whose
lives hang by so fragile a hair that the slightest jar can turn
the balance.
So, in our Mardi Gras revelry, let us show a little consi-
deration for less fortunate people who face misery and illness
Sand route our revelry away from the silent, zones.
HELP AUTHORITIES STIFLE CIRCULATION
OF DIRTY PHOTOGRAPHS
Indignant parents have complained on several occasions du-
;..ring the past few days of the undercover circulation of inde-
cent photographs among theyouth of the capital.
These pornographic pictures, showing scenes allegedly
taken in the less reputable sections of Havana are thought
by most people to be the result of trick photography. They
claim that the scenes shown are .%unrealisable impossible
scientifically.
Whether the pictures are unreal is of little importance. The
harm that they cause is very concrete and very serious. The
'corruption of our school children and college youth is a mat-
,' .ter that deserves the most serious attention at the earl.tiest
.possible moment.
", Haitian law is definite in banning suLch literature and pho-
1 .gtographs. Article 232 of the Penal Code states: (cAll introduct-
,;o, distribution or exhibition of sons, pamphlets. figures,
) Ior pictures contrary to'the dictates of good morals will be
Punished by imprisonment from ONE MONTH TO ONE
; YEAR, and confiscation of the articles in question)>..
S- Further amendments of the article increase the minimum
F* sentence to three months and provide for the burning of the
'."offending literature or pictures.
.-. We are certain that the police will spare neither time nor
"effort in tracking down and punishing the offenders, and we
|II',gappeal to every Haitian citizen and resident to co-operate
authorities in wiping out the nasty evil that is taking
rit in our community.

Although during his lifetime,
Merilus designated certain of his

IS, RITES

FOLK


A neighbour has been dispatched
to the nearest town'to purchase
the mourning clothing, while ano
their was charged with the job of
bringing back the quantity of
bread, cola, sugar, tobacco, cof-
fee, tafia, clairin, tbalines and
chandelles that'would tide them
over the rather costly wakec
that night.

Preparing the Body.
After the local dressmaker has
been bound over to a charge that
will definitely affect her honour
if she fails td' deliver the mour-
ning dresses by noom of the fol-
lowing day, the order is given to
fetch %Rosilia*. the woman who
is to perform the duty as a emou

didn't die a natural death.). Then
an important decision is reached.
During the confusion and protes

performs a solemn but'macabre
duty.....the mort;> receives bet-
ween his stiffened lips a correc-
tly measured dose of white pow-

while his peaceful sleep in the
cemetery is definitely guaran-
teed.

Now Merilus will never hear,

who would have liked to become
his master.
The arsenic herb administered
posthumously achieved his death,
and the dust from his bones will
poison the would-be desecraters
of his body.


Removing the Loa.
Another important rite that ta
kes place previous to the mercy
act described above is that of
removing the 'loa that inhabited
the deceased.
The local spiritualist accom-
plishes this by movements and
strange incantations, and some
special liquid concoction over a
certain period of time, and final-
ly pronounces that hlie has ,reti-

The Wake.
With the village carpenter ply-
ing his trade in the making of
the coffin, the night of the wake
gets off to a start from 7:00 P.M.
The singing of ccantiqueso by the
folks of the mountains and the
saying of special prayers for the
soul of the departed are engaged
ip during the first part of the eve
' ning.
By 11:00 P.M., with large quan
titles of alcoholic spirits to aid
their efforts, the men are having
a lively card game, others are
indulging in spirited games of di-

ankle .injured during childhood
in Russia where, he says, there
was a lack of available medical
facilities.
Travel Over-rated.
aHe who lives does not travel.
He who does not live travels,*
Mr. Galperin quoted Somerset
Maugham to explain his cons-
tant restlessness.
SEnlarging on the theme, he
whipped out a series of other si-
milar sayings in strong, confi-
dent tones.
P. I-jirshbein said: I am not
so much interested in the place
I am going to as I am tired of
the place I was in,, said the old
Than.
Then he asked if we had heard
Sinclair Lewis' gem in Dods-
worihD. Barely waiting for the
cnoz, he quoted:
(Travel is over-rated. If travel
broadened then the abroadest
would be the Pullman porters,
so ayou pays yer price and you
takes yer choices. However, Pull
man porters travel in line of du-
ty and play is work you don't ha
ve to do, so, to a certain degree,
travel will broaden, if your po-
wer of absorption is not taxed.v
eTravel is like eating, 'Mr. Gal
perin declared and too much


of it doesn't agree with you.
The' wanderer continued that
when he feels that he is approa-
ching saturation point he re-
turns home for a rest before set-
ting out again.
Speaking of eating, Mr Gelpe-
rin went ot to the topic of tro-
pical skin-fruit, his only form of
nourishment during his travels
in areas with the least hint of
poor sanitation.
The question of sanitation in
some rural areas of South Ame-
rica presents a problem to the
traveller. Mr Gelperin always
makes sure he personally, peels
his oranges or bananas.
Elezear Gelperin has been
eJust about everywhere*. His fa
vourite mode of transportation
is Pan American clipper which
he finds best suited to his kind
of life.
If he likes a place, or thinks
it interesting, he can stop off and
catch a plane out whenever he
feels like it.
On a ship it is necessary to
keep to a schedule.

Rewards of Travel.
The wanderer said that his re-
wards for his travels are mee-
ting people and experiencing lit
tle kindnesses. He has built up
a stock of anecdotes illustrating
,human nature in the raw.s
Mr. .Gelperin, who has maste-
red an impressive list of langua-
ges met and conversed with Fe-
lix Racster, Tourist Office Corres
pondence Chief. Racster earned
great praise for his command of
seven tongues, especially his
Russian which, Elezear said, he
speaks like a native.
The Luggage Cart.
Offered a ride by Your Repor-
ter, the globe-trotter refused and
swayed away on his bad ankle,
to pick up his luggage at Bowen
Field and board an out-going clip
per.
The walking-stick-cart was ins
pired by.. Swiss travelling sales-
men who use a similar contrap-
tion.
The snag with the Swiss ver-
sion is that it only has one whe-

Wise & Otherwise

The Age of Miracles is not Past

Something tremendous has happened. Something colossal, as
they say in the moving picture industry. Because it happened to'
mne is what nrfakes it colossal and tremendous, of course. Had it
happened to you it would have passed unnoticed except in the r
small circle of your friends and acquaintances.h
But it happened to me, a man known and admired by everybo-
dy on this island who amounts to anything, and by thousands of r
others who just happen to live here. Decide for yourself in which
category you belong.
All Port-au-Prince is talking about it. Word is spreading to the
Provinces. Telegrams and letters are coming in from Cayes, Cap r
Haitien, St Marc and other towns where I used to live, asking if
it is true. G c
You who have seen me recently know that it is true. But for
the benefit of tourists at ,E1 Rancho who nmy happen to read
this column in a moment of quiet desperation, I will tell what has
happened.
As I was leaving the Post Office the other day I passed Dr.
Brown of the Haitian American Institute. We passed each other
with the usual curt cGood Mornings. d

The Miracle

Across the street I saw a white cassock. When he came within
my visual range I recognized Father Smith and tried to pass him
with the usual curt xGood Mornings,, but failed. His long arm
reached out and 'his strong fingers gripped my shoulder, holding
me while he stared at my head.
(So its true, Tommy,., he said. ,It's true that you have dyed
your hair red. Are your completely crazy?%
,No, Father, I replied with dignity, not dye my hair. I cannot lie to you, Father, and I swear that I
did not. Besides it is not red, it is dark brown.#
Never mind the colour, he said roughly. ,If you didn't dye it,
what did you do to it?,
Nothing Father,v I smiled.. cBut I did do something I am as-
hamed of, and I want to tell you about it, to get rid of that. guilty
feeling I have.,>
,Go on, ; he said I'm listening,
<,Well, Father, I've been going to a Voodoo man, one of those
houngans who is a herb doctor. A friend of mine at the Abattoir.
introduced us. For the past two months he has given me, twice a
week, a spoonful of some concoction which has changed the 'co-
lour of my hair.
Father Smith scowled at me and said, You are either a liar
or an idiot, Tommy, and if you are an idiot, you might have been
Spoisoned.I
<,No danger, Father> I replied 4I thought of that and always
brought my own spoon.*
There was a baffled look on Father Smith's face as he turned
mid strode into the Post Office.

Modern Medicine
I started across the street and was opening the door of my car
when a voice called. ,Tommy. wait a minute, I want to see you.x
Turning. I saw Dr. Louis Roy getting out of his Chewvy. I waited.
He stared at my head for a moment, then laughed. 4I couldn't
believe it when I heard it, but I see it's true.., he said. cAren't you
ashamed Tommy, at your age to be dyeing your hair?*
%,No Louis,, I replied, '.1 am not ashamed because I have not
dyed my hair. And before you ask any more questions I am going
to tell yol that the colour is due to a new hormone treatment I
have been taking.>
He smiled. .Hormones won't change the colour of your -hair.s
sThat's what you think..,> I replied. ; Have you read the Februa-
_ry issue of ('Coronet,. The article which tells how hundreds of
women have been rejuvenated by a new hormone treatment?p
He said lie hadn't read it. & You should,* I told him. 4I have
been using a modified formula based on the one in that article.,

A Dream of Love
iYou are a medical man. Louis.) I went on. stand you know I
wouldn't lie to you or attempt to deceive you. This new treatment
is wonderful. I am getting younger every week. Springtime has co
me to me again. Every night I dream that a group of lovely young
girls enters my room to sing and dance for me. Oie by one they
quietly leave until just two remain, the loveliest them all. One
of them draws near to mn bed. arms held out to me. and bends
down to kiss me as the other opens the door to leave. Just then
I wake up. This goes on every night. It is driving me 'mad. I am
a nervous wreck. Louis, I need your help.'
QYou want me to give you something to stop having those dre-
ams?v he asked. Is that it?,
,(No, Louis, that is not it., I replied. I want you to give me
something to make the last girl who leaves stop slamming the
door as she goes out. That is what wakes me up.,

cMerilus mourri.....nwei... wei....D
As dawn breaks in over the be-
*rea-ved household, silence falls
.suddenly over the habitation, as
the wake breaks' up, and the
neighbours find their way to their
.own ecailles,. to dress for the fu-
nerai. All preparations are now
well under way, and things grow
calmer as the hour approaches
for Merilus to be taken to his
fina", resting place.

No Church Funeral.
If only he had been able to de-
-cide to make the venture into the
holy state of matrimony, during
his years with the woman he was
leaving behind, Merilus could
have bad a church funeral.
The father would have been
summoned while he was dying
to. give him the last sacrament,
and would have climbed the
mountains to the house to bring
the supreme spiritual consola-
tion of the church to the %cailleg
before leading the procession and
pronouncing the holy words that
would consecrate the rites befo-
re committing the body to the
good earth.
In this case. the comforting
presence of a member of the clear
gy is lacking, and no Mlace can be
given the body on the ecatafal-
que* of the Chapel.
The pallbearers, bolstered by
a goodly supply of alcoholic spi-
rits, hoist the retains to their
shoulders, <.A la taton,* and ra-
cd away in the direction of the,
distant cemetery, not letting up
in their speed even when the has


tily-made coffin threatens to gi-
ve up its tenant as he jostles
about and almost pops the cover
off.
Their burden has to be delive-
red underground and covered
with large rocks before the sun
goes down.
After tho funeral, everyone
returns to the home of the de-
ceased where coffee is served, as
well as food to those whose appe
ttes call for it. while prayers are
resumed.
And each, night thereafter for
eight days the same group of re-
latives and friends unite to pray
with the bereaved famini.ly. On the
ninth night, the <.derniere pri&

erected by City officials, where
they heard the welcoming ad-
dress of Mayor Nelaton Camille.
In. an answering address, Presi-

Then the President shook
thousands of hands as delegations
from all over the republic pou-
red in to congratulate him on his
highly successful tour.
The people of Haiti were enthu
siastic in their welcome of Pre-
sident Magloire whose goodwill
tour through Washington, New

Ottawa, Montreal and Jamaica
has proven of such benefit to
Haiti, and Thursday night was gi

THE TOURING PRESIDENT


President' Magloire spent three
day, as guest of Sir Hugh Foot,
and made nine public appearan-
ces.
On arrival in Jamaica, the Hai
tian visitors were met by cloudy
weather but warm handshakes
from the Governor and a group
of Jamaica officials, and a 21-gun
salute from the H.M.S. Triumph.

A Civic4reception, a toriw of
the North Coast and an official
reception at King's House were
included in the itinerary of the
visit. Throughout the island Ja-
maicans cheered the passage of
the Haitian Chief of State, and
the island's largest newspaper,
cThe Daily Gleaner*, carried
inch-high headlines describing
his welcome.


( Showed the True
Visage of
the Nation))
PROPHETE
President Magloire's goodwill
tour achieved such immense sue
cess* because he showed the peo
pie of the neighboring states
the true visage of the Nation...
her true spirit, free of all bias
and corn, fortified with far-rea-
ching hopes. Interior Minister
Luc Prophete said in his welco-
ming address Thursday in the lob
by of the National Palace.

,Never has a Haitian Chief of
State showed to more advantage
the democratic ideals of this Ca
ribbean Nation, which, in cultu-
ral and Historical aspects is the
guiding light of Latinity, > the
Minister continued.

Minister Prophete declared
that of all the fortunate events
marking the past years of the pre
sent administration which by
their magnitude and importance
have already shown the people
the value of the President's
work, this triumphant entry ha@
brought the most joy to the Hai
tian people.

< It, is like the soleM terms of
an order: the order of a nation,
the translation of a wish: the
wish of the Haitian Public.v
