COMMENTS ON THE CARNIVAL
,Le Nationabl: In all nearly eighteen floats were eomn-1
ted each more mediocre tha n the other... We can say froM the
beginning that the honourable members of the City Council::
did not have the necessary time ...
,Le Nouvelliste: The statement of (,Le Na;ionalk is not
far from the general consensus ... Not a question of time; bat
of the choice of the stars for the Carnival... a sure choice
would have ascertained a 60% chance of success .. The" nu
of the tourism float illustrated this well. She won y
over ... The City's floats all looked alike and lacked agina-
lity. And look at Ricket Perpignand, what he could do.:Jni.the
short time available! Neither money nor time matters ifi ,od&
taste, originality and artistic feeling are there ...

DQN'T BLAMIE THE MERCHANTS

.Indivdual incidents almost unnoticed in themselves reflected
the true spirt ,of the pre-Leqten holiday as vividly this year
'as ever, and the small man that sets the tone of the occasion
,was as hilariously funiy and as daringly "original. ,
SForpigners visiting the country, although unable to underst-
.and tle'gags that the highlighted the procession (like the r.an
'Crying out: 1I lost my, draWers>)), could (iet feel the light co-
*me.y anos.pher. and many ivere completely captivated fall-
Jng in and daflcing with the band.
SThere were comic sub-plots that could be understood by all,
regardless of language barriers: .'..The traditional < yotte* with his little box that collects a"penny to show the
contents, for instafice, or the type* with qs ingenious tele-
phone who kept ringing up aPeligrex for power an4 dancing
..while a bulb WQuld light up in his pats, .
3 It is true that the floats were too few, and the commercial
entetpte were" a-n

.fs the ecop0nmy of Haiti as well as its sp4ir The, econony
ifthe republic, is in a sorely HIjazelied condition even if the
joyousness and'origniality remains unaffected.
'Commergants cannot be blamed, for the slump.in the Car-
ijival floats Which mirrors a corresponding slunp n business.
MiArdi Giras is directly produced by the various phases' of na-
,ti nal life. .
The additioins over the years that have come to the-'carrtival
:are projections of the 'additions to the country's features. For
Instance, ir recent years, industry, tourismm, the Artibonite
project Peligr9 and Borel have become part of the tradition.
As the progress of.the country is show ifi the carnival, so
.the'opposite phases of life must also be evident. The parade
is a natuotl expression and as such cannot Pe forced by un-
natural s.lws.
Although the commergants can hardly be blamed, the ho-
tels and tourism interests cannot plead Hazel, and they should
bp re1prinded for the poor showing.
' T -two .-associatiozis of. tourist and gift shops banded to-
'gflther'iand miad' a livly and, colourful float for the process-
ion, but the hotels and tour agent the concerns that
Benefit directly from Mardi Gras were not represented,
ii. spite of the fact that Mayor. Nelaton Camille sent an'. offi-
cial letter, [o twenty four hotels asking them to participate.

Too Fast
SIt is a pity that the procession went by so quickly thartda-.
ny of the sidelights that make the Haitian carnival truly ex-
pressive and original were missed. \
'.The line of floats was shorter this year and that accounted
'in part, for the speed with which the procession went around
but spectators would have been more .content>> if the mas-
quers had gone past more slowly giving them timeto savour.
the show in all its detail. .

:,MAISONS) TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SIDENVLKS
-'Clean towns are essential to the growth of our tourist in-
idustry, and sidewalks are essential to the cleanliness of our
Townss'
To. few tourists walk through Port au Prince, because of
'the bad state of our sidewalks, and there is consequently little
window shopping. This is, bad for commerce a'nd many bua:-
'.ess houses are beginning to realize that clean, level side-
walks are to their benefit.
.A cleah exterior reflects cleanliness and efficiency inside,
!a store. Few foreign and even local customers will troop
.lirough dust and dirt to make their purchases.
--SSHASA, which has almost finished its new building, laid
.dQWn a tiled sidewalk, Jules Farmer, Wyllis-Knight agent is
,Peparing a sidewalk for his almost-finished garage-show-
loom, and de Matteis of Place Geffrard is planning new side-
!walks. 'Older stores like Mrs. Heurtelou's Sabot d'Or*, son Orientale> , Pierre Coies the Tailor, an.d Frauck
.Wilson's streamlined Universal Sales building already blazed
.the trail, paving their frontyards and proving that it pays.
In some countries, shop-owners are held responsible if
:Pedestrians injure themselves in front of their buildings. It
Would be costly for some of our businessmen if the same were
true here with the downtown pavements pocked with
bos and uneven enough to make a sailor sea-sick.

HONEST HU-KU-
WAWA

Dr. Lee Caccick left Haiti
last week with a high opinion of
9;Lr honesty. And it was all due
to Hco-Ku-Wawa's laundry on
Rue Pav6e.
Dr. Carrick reports that he
sent hi' trousers up to Hoo Ku


for a pressing but forgot to re-o''
move his wad of $750.
When the Wana staff found";.
the cash they immediately nt-.
fled the Beau Rivaee where Dr. k'
Carrick was staying.

grateful. said the visiting medico

Still a Serpent
His help will be needed. In the
Garden of Eden that is Haiti the
re is still a serpent. Former Pre !
sident Borno called it ethe old
revolutionary demon. The ser-
pent's fangs have been drawn, but
it still has its tongue, and roams
the country side whispering to
those who still- dream of the old
era and toW the eternal malcontents
'who have troubled every country
and every age.
The men who created the Hai-
tian nation were strong-willed,
violent men who left a terrible
heritage to'their people. Proud, '

gacy of justice and peace.. .

What drives people to drink? The answer to that question,
in spite of all the thick books that have been written about it,
is really very simple. People are driven to drink by sorrow,
happiness, poverty, wealth, wives, husbands, idleness, work,
pain, health, boredom, hilarity, receptions, the need of L'ar-
gent, too much money, incessant sneezing, clients from the
provinces, births, deaths, marriages.
But as the list couTd easily fill the rest of this sober column
perhaps it might be as well to cut it short after the* first inch
or two and get down to a rare case of pleasant inebriation)
recorded in the capital city this past week.
. A tourist well past the flowering stage, rivalled the entire
mardi gras parade combined, with ei" execution of her swans
without stays dance along the Champ de Mars.
In an exclusive, on-the-spot interview after the good-natur-
ed visitor had ground out a muscular version of ascissorb,
taille tOte moinn, this column learned that DRINK .was doing
the actual driving. Rhum Barbancourt -Haiti's golden rival
to the waters sought by Ponce de Leon- had completely re-
charged her batteries and she was no longer driving.
(The moral to this story is: tcHaiti has more to offer than
scenery. 1


.FIVE-MONTJ-OLD Fire Engine shown above ended up beside :a Coast
Road mango tree when it sicerved to tioid 'a car pn its way'-back
from the Carrefour blaze that swept the Vodou Club qnd 58 other
buildings last Thursday morning. The driver of the car reportedly
lost his head when the engine bore down on him with sirens waiin-g,
and he backed into the path of the oncoming pompiersv. With
praiseworthy presence.of-mind the driver ofthe fire engine avoided
the car, wkich was carrTing several passengers, and chose the ditch
instead. Expensive repairs to the engine are now being completed.
The car-driver was taken into custody.

there was a six-page-supplement
telling the 'story of a Nation and

Included in the supplement was
an account of the,. way in which
Haiti 'carved out her own magn-
ificent progress,, and an article
urging businessmen. to invest here
an extract 'of which is published
below.
m ,
HAITI FABULOU'S PROFITS
AWAIT THOSE -WILLING to
MAKE INVESTMENTS

The: above tersely sums up a


situation in the economy of the
Republic (of Haiti which should
interest enterprising businessmen
with capital to invest.
There is a golden opportunity
to get in on the ground floor of
business opportunity in Haiti.

HAITI PLANS A)ID TO
BUSINESSMEN

With the reparations, land Je-
velopments and agricultural pro-
grams instituted by the Magloire
government, there is certain to be
a brisk increase in food product-
ion in the immediate future.

Here are some of the food pro-
ducts 'in which foreign capitol
could do business butter, beer,
powdered, condensed and evapo-
rated milk, vinegar and cheese.

In the textile and clothing in-
dustries Haiti is interested in the
manufacture of shoes, lingerie,
corsets, bathing, suits, hats, pyja-
mas, cottons, silks, nylons, work
and school uniforms and infants
clothing.

Chemical and pharmaceutical
products are, a crying need. These
would include such products as


beauty aids, hair oils and lotions
toilet soap, insecticides, vitamins,
perfumeN, dental cleansers and a
wide range of pharmaceutical pro-
ducts.

There is also room for develop-
ment of industries producing bath-


ing caps carpets, luggage, san-
dals. I
Products in silver, pottery and
ceramics are wanted as mirrors,
mosaics, flower pots aU4T.vases,
electrical appliances: also metal
products like kitchen and, table
utensils, windows, and doors.

U.S. Professors 'Tell Law Students
Western Countries Hope of World
By Me. Joseph Pierre VICTOR


Two North American professors
lectured at the sixth meeting of
the Interamerican Academy of
Comparative and International Law
which took place in Havana Ja-
nuary 31-February 12.
One hundred
and twenty-five
L a w students
from Argentina,
Costa Rica, E-
cuador, Guatema-
?la, Q Haiti, Mexi-
20aO, Puerto Rico,
UeSA' .and Cuba
followedd f. -t 'v eor t R
.ourseds conduct-
ed by professors
fro i7e' Universities of Havana,
Bu 'Aires, Quitol and. Mexico,
as ref|as -the American profess-
ors-4Ctiver Schroeder Jr., from
Weflen' Reser've, a n d Albert
Sclqpiweig, California.-
A;Afor SchrPeder -conducted
his %at s -M]dkeine and Law-
in ift'ye lessons, followed by small
group debates -and rpund table
discduislons, answering students'
que.ti6ns.
His main point was: Citizens of
the Western Hemisphere bear pri-
mary responsibility for the con-
tinued advance of our Occidental
civilisatiop.
This is borne out, said profess
or Scuhroeder, by the following
facts:
a) In the eighteenth century
the New World blazed the trail
for Man's political emergence;
b) A century later the Nev
World led the way to his phy
sical freedom;
c) In this century it has be
come the cradle of intellectual
freedom.
To my way of thinking three o
the most important points mad
in the course were: I) Internatic
nal Government reached its mos
advanced stage through the Par
American Union (now Organiza
tion of American States); II) r
ternational co-operation of law
years came first through the Inte
american Bar Association (1940
followed in 1947 by the Interna
tional Bar Association; Hi) Atomi


Energy was discovered through
the New World's intellectual free-I d
dom.
Lawyers and Doctors t
Professor Schroeder compared c
lawyers and doctors, showing the i
different methods used to achieve s
a single aim the knowledge of f
Truth. r
Historical fact shows that West-0
ern progress is due to the contin- c
ual search for truth and justice, C
and law has always been closely
connected to truth and justice in
our civilisatiqn. I I
The professor illustrated his
point bi quoting the legal' philo- 1
'sophles of such men as Jefferson
and Lincoln.
The author df this article,; Me.
Joseph Pierre Victor recently
returned., from an intrenatlonal
law forum in Havana 'which,was
attended by 125 lawyers from
20 Latin American countries. Me
Victor was one, of 15 honoured
with special- diploma.
Graduated' in L948 from the
, .Cap-Haltlen Law school, Me Vie
tor has gained-degrees,in account
ting (La Salle), and ethnology
and further laurels in law during
his 7 years as an energetic de-
fense lawyer.
Me Victor is married a"d is
raising two fine sons to give to
the Bar.
Greatest of All Time
F .Professor Schroeder pointed out
I that the world is today involved
in the greatest struggle of all ti-
/ me.
- As the U.S. Constitution -decla-
res, the West is fighting as it has
- always fought for Truth and Jus-
I twice.
-We believe it is a- duty to
f -champion all fundamental rights
e under law, but we recognize that
)- a special trust and competence to
it safeguard every man's right is
i- dependent, the professor quoted.
I- Behind the Iron Curtain
L- Discussing the relation of law to
v- truth and justice in the legal sys-
r tern of Soviet Communism, Pro-
) fessor Schroeder said: 'According
a- to Karl Marx,, in the social prod-
ie auction of-their lives, people enter


HAITI Rc'


ito definite and necessary rela-
ionships which 'are independent
f their will production rela-
ionships, which correspond to
he definite degree to which their
material productive powers have
developed. The totality of these
production relationships consti-
ues the economic structure of so-
iety, the real basis upon which
s built the judicial and political
trucfure, and to which definite
orms of social consciousness cor-
respond. The means of production
if material life condition the so-
cial, political and spiritual pro-
cesses of life in general.
-In fact, Law is not enigmatic
shape" but a living reality, ex-
pressing the essence of social re-
ationship between classes on the
basis of the dominance, domina-
:ion, repression and subjection by
the dominant classes, of other
classes subject to this domininance..
(Vishinsky Law of the Soviet
State).
Thus, the professor concluded,
Law in the Communist states is
the instrument of political policy.
Law often needs help-from Me-
dicine. I
In the case, for instance, of an
unknown person, unknown time,
place or cause of death, and other
medical complications such as the
growth of cancer from an injury.
Law and Medicine conflict in
ethical spheres, the substantive
rule, the procedural rules (diffi-
culties verdict of Jury and Judge's
decision.
But in the independence of de-
cision and application of Law and
Medicine to individuals, the pro-
fessions are very similar.
To end the course, Professor
Schroeder described the work un-
dertaken at the Western Reserve
-University Medical Center, under-
lining the co-operative spirit,
shown by University students z.nd
professors, public officials and
,private citizens.
To illustrate this cooperation,
Professor Schroeder said the En-
glish professor is invited to lec-
ture to' the school on police
science, crime and other subjects,
showing the interdependence' of
Man.
The linking of Law and Medi-
cine, he said, is but one aspect of
a general development.
