LIVES MAY BE MENACED
BY HOLES IN THE STREETS...
Several policemen narrowly missed death or serious inju-
ry Tuesday night when a police-wagon lurched into a hole
opposite Sans Souci and demolished a road-side wall.
The shaken cops had not seen the open 4trouw> and a wheel
suddenly struck it sending the vehicle out of control.
[t wasn't the first time that this hole has claimed a victim,
and unless something is dbne about it, it certainly will not
be the last.
Yet, this and many other man-traps are left un-noticed
about the city. lying in wait to snap pedestrians' legs or send
motorists to .he hospital.
In other countries, lights, some red. some white, are strung
on poles around any break or opening in the asphalt, and
during the d3ay signs warn <-DANGERI.. Open culverts and
manholes are unheard of.
The hole that betrayed the cops was camouflaged with a
small branch. Usually.'tliTe holes are just left untouched.
Surely, the Travaux Publics should do something about the
ctrous> that mar our capital city and which may threaten the
lives of those who use our public thoroughfares.

SALT PRODUCTION COULD BE INCREASED,
AND HAITLkN ECONOMY WOULD BENEFIT
Room for expansion in the salt industry in Haiti is quite
apparent from a casual study of the country's imports.
Salt, a household necessity, is produced along the Western
coast North of Port au Prince mainly in Grande Saline,
near Gonaives.
The people of the Northwest, near Coridon and Anse Rou-
ge, when they received relief supplies after Hazel, readily
gave salt in return to send to their less-fortunate brothers in
the Southwest.
The modern methods of salt farming are not unknown to
many Haitians as many of the skilled workers who staff the
farms and refineries on the salt-producing island of Inagua
which is. located about 100 miles North of Haiti are Haitians.
Scientific halt-farming methods could be a boon to local
industry; as salt plays an Important part in other industries
such as tanning. It could be nursed into big business, as one
thing Haiti has over other salt producing countries is the
major requirement, strong sun.
It appears that the modern material necessary, consists only
of pumps which carry the salt water into a series of ponds,
gradually draining off the water and leaving the salt, and the
machinery for gathering the crystals.
Therefore, it should not be difficult, with a little initiative
and energy, to increase our salt production considerably.
Last year's salt imports topped 31420 kilos, representing a
retail value of 19,820 Gdes. ($3,964).
A glance at these figures will show how much the economy
of Haiti would benefit, if our salt producers made greater
effort. After all, there-is no limit to the amount of sea-water
at our disposal.

U. N. Experiments To Harness

The Latent Power of The Wind


* UNITED NATIONS N.Y...
The Caribbean Republic of Haiti
part.: of which are still suffering
from che after effects of last
year's Hurricane .Hazel.,, is exa-
mining the possibility of putting
to constructive use the latent
- power of the wind to make up
for the island's lack of adequate
sources of energy for its agricul-
tural and industrial development.
This wind-power survey, which
has -been launched with the aid
of two specialists sent to Haiti by
the United Nations Technical As-
sistance Administration, is one of
many now being carried on in
those areas of the world where
there is a lack of such conventio-
nal sources of energy as coal, oil
or running water.
No oil has been founA in Hai-
i,..the rivers are unsuitable for
large-scale hydro-electric power
I production and the extensive use
of wood as a fuel is denuding the
hillsides and causing, disastrous
soil erosion. The wind is one
great source of energy which-is
available locally.
One of the U.N. experts just
returned from Haiti is Edward
Scolding, head of the Wind Power
and Rural Electrification Depart
ment of the Electrical Research
Association in Great Britain.
SPointing 9ut that the potentiali-
ties wf the wind as a source of
energy are enormous and have
so far scarcely been tapped, he
recently suggested in a quarterly
review impact .of Science on. So-
ciety, published by the United
Nations 'Scientific and Cultural


Organization. that pilot experi-
ments in different parts of the
world be undertaken on an in-
ternational basis*.
Despite the fact that the latent
power of the wind is almost un-
limited, there are two obstacles
to its use. One is that wind is ir
regular; the other that though
the total energy is large, it is so
thinly distributed that it must
be concentrated before it can be
used. For these reasons the sit-
ing of wind-power plants is of vi-
tal importance.
Mr. Golding and Arthur Stod-
hart, the other U.N. expert sent
to Haiti, have been directing the
establishment of ten wind meas-

HE'S IN THE bOG-HOUSE, and there's no horse-play about it eith-
er. This little colt, a habitantt, of Plateau Ste. Croix, is probably the
only horse in the world to enjoy the comforts of a kennel. Anyway.
he will soon have grown to stable size and then envious fellow-ponies
can set their minds at ease

The DWO10 is powered by a 115 HP

lowers operating costs by using low cost,
non-premium fuels, without fouling. The
brakes on the trailing =nit take hold an

and sea, lying 3.300 feet below.
Spacious, and always cool.
Le Perchoir Gift Shop offers
the same high quality French
perfumes. Haitian jewelry, dan-

hundreds of other gift items,
assemnbled from the far corners
"'of the earth, as in the mother

'( /\\


By Mary Johnson
Gaiety the keynote of night
life in Port-iau-Prince the
gay sophistication of a New
World Paris underlined by the
hypnotic beat of African tam-
hours.
And in keeping with its
French tradition the accent is
on good food in a romantic at-
mosphere. Few places in the
world ,can offer 'a more enticing
blend of these two elements
than Le Perchoir, Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000


above Port-au-Prince and its
emerald 'bay. Guests during tea
and cocktail hour have a front
row seat at one of the most
bewitching settings ever pro-.
vided for a tropical sunset.
Then the flights go on and the
curving bayshore is outlined in
-a necklace of shimmering
pearls. On the breezeswept
terrace, guests can watch cars
stop at the Dominican border
20 miles away.
Whether it's a thick state-
side steak or an ethereal Rum
Gouff16, Le Perchoir food is
superbly prepared and elegant-
ly served. Fl&Iix Guignard and
his orchestra provides music for
dancing.
The International Casino, a
stank establishment run by a
staff imported from Monte-
Carlo, is one of the major
points of interest during the
summer -and winter tourist sea
sons. There one can dine on
excellent Italian food and later
visit the gaming taifles which i
are meticulously run under the
supervision of the Haitian Go-
vernment. On the bay side,
an orchestra beats out rhum-
bas, mamnbos and romantic Hai-
tian meringues for dancing un-
der the twinkling stars.
Near the Casino, in the bree-
ziswept Exposition Grounds
is the Open Air Theatre de
Verdure where visitors can
attend the bi-weekly shows put
on by the talented National
Folklore Troupe.
Around the curve of the bay
is the newly remodeled Hotel
Riviera with its huge air-con-
ditioned Bamboche Room and
circular bar. The bar's revol-
ving center serves as the stage
for Guy Durosier's tri-lingual
crooning and a nightly floor
show (The white-ifced Banda
Dancer is Minsky's in reverse,
a comedian par excellence).

Among the world travelers
there is a saying that good shop-
pers, when they die, go to Haiti.
In Haiti there is the widest
possible variety of gifts, souve-
nirs, jewelry, clothes, extraor-
dinarily fine rum and liqueurs
native handicraft and imported
luxuries from many ports of
the world... all the way from
Paris to Pakistan.
Haiti's richy hand-varnished
mahogany bowls trays and
sculpture are well known. So
is the famous Rhum Barban-


nelles, to the pulsing beat of
the voodoo drums. It's an UN-
FORGELABLE expe rience.
For late stayer-uppels any
night of the week, Dan Allen's
Rendez-vous across form the
International Casino goes strong
until all hours. And along
about 1 a. m., the joint is usual-
ly hopping with oldtime Ame-


Other leading hotels have
special dinner dansants once or
twice a week. Visitors should
not miss an opportunity to hear
Haiti's internationally known
male Dejean Choir which per-
-forms at Hotel Ibo Lele on Fri-
day evenings. The El Rancho
features Ti Ro Ro, Haiti's num-
ber one drummer, and menm-
bers of the National Folklore
Troupe on Friday evening and
other special dance nights
which vary according to the
season. Hotel Dambala has a
Saturday night chicken barbe-
que beside its illuminated pool,
with an orchestra providing
music for outdoor dancing on
its marble patio. The Villa
Creole's Big Night is Thursday
evening with a Haitian Buffet
served beside its pool in a gala
tropical garden decor and, of
course, dancing. The roof gar-
den at Hotel Choucoune is open
for dinner dancing Monday and
Wednesday nights during the
season.
On Saturday evening Petion-
ville's thatched-roofed night
club, Cabane Choucoune, is the
mecca of the Capital Elite and
visitors. AMernating orchestras
throb with the rhythm of the
Haitian Meringue, a dance so
simple that visitors need spend
no time on the side 'lines just
looking on. Though this has
long been the society gathering
spot of the Haitian Capital,
rum and sodas are still served
for .20 a glass. There is an en-
trance fee which varies depen-
ding upon the entertainment
for the evening. The Cabane
Choucoune often features lea-
ding foreign entertainers.
Saturday night is also the
night for taking trips into the
nearby hills to attend the pea-
sant .bamboches, or non-reli-
gious dances held in oven fton-


court. Particularly prized by
gourmets is Five Star, Rhum
Barbancourt... so mellow that
it 'is often served with all the
ceremony accorded a grand, old
cognac. This is one of the few
rums in thle world which is
distilled not from the pure
pressed juice of the sugar cane.
Only b few cases are ex-
ported from Haiti each year.
For this reason people who-
really-know take their full quo- ':'
ta of non-taxable liquor 5
bottles of Rhum Barban-
court back 'to the States. The-,
price in Port-au-Prince is ama-
zingly moderate.

rican favorites, such as Alexan-
der's Ragtime Band.
For seafood and such spe-
cialties as Fried Frogs Legs,
there is the 'bayshore restau-
rant known as Ki Pi or Cap-
tain Ace's. The food is excel-
lent, the view interesting and
the dancing fun. ,
For dinner minus dancing,
there is.Petionville's Le Picar-
di a French-run Pension fea-
turing Escargot, pepper steak
and the sort of food rarely seen
or tasted off the Midi. In Port-
auiPrinca, Aux Cosaques is
"known for its tasty flaming
lobster and other typica'lly Hai-
fian dishes. The savoy, just
off the Champs de Mars, offers
either Haitian or American
foods and if you are really ho-
mesick for southern fried chic-
ken that is just where you'll
find it a block from the Na-
tional Palace.





















Most of these trips can be
'made iin conventional automo-
biles, others require the more
versatile jeel to navigate the
rough spots and river crossings.
All of -them can be made in sa-
fety


There is a Hertz-Drive-tit
Yourself Agency in town where
you can rent a car or a jeep at
reasonable rate; or you can
rent cars, with or without
chauffers, elsewhere. The Hai-
tian Air Force provides safe
and efficient air transport to
most important points in Haiti
at very reasoninalble rates. Ask
your hotel manager or your
travel agent for details.
Each of -these trips has its
special attraction. From the
longer trips you will return
with a grand 'thirst, a hearty
appetite, a delicious fatigue,
-uickly banished by a hot bath

TRAVEL SUUOESTIONS$


(for which you will have a new
respect). You will have a new
test for the attractions of the
city. You will fell a great pity
for the jaded characters who
have not strayed fa'om the bar
since you left... And, of course,
you wil have a good reserve of
conversational ammunition to
last you for many months.
So, starting with the shortest
t'ips first, here are a few boiled
-owvn suggestions for travel in
Haiti:

BOUTILLIERS MOUNTAIN
AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pershawh) The .Perch)
The most spectacular view in
Haiti: 2,000 square rhiles of
Haiti spread out before you -
a miracle of color, form, sun-
light and shadow!. Port-au-Pxin-
ce lies at your feet (3.000 feet
below) like'a giant map. To get
to this 'breath-taking, urnbelie-
eable and unforgettable view
)u ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through the pretty little


town of Petionville, then up a
winding mountain road, borde-
red by flaming giant pointsetta
plants. You pass the tratched


:Gcf' habitations of peasants and
arrive in rural Haiti, where life
:,ces on E.s it has for centuries
as if the city below did not
ex.ist. LE PERCHOIR, modern
oas.is on the mountain, offers
the facilities of its restaurant
and night club, its Terrace Bar,
and its branch of La Belle Cre-
ole Gift Shop lo make the trip
even more enjoyable and profi-
table. After sundown light
wraps advisable, and gentlemen
are asked to wear coats in the
restaurant after 7 p. m. Allow
two hours for this trip -' plus
time to eat.

CAP-HAITIEN
AND LA CITADELLE
This trip is an experience in
history and geography. It is an
adventure and a pilgrimage
which you must ndt miss.








If ydu have the time, we re-
commend that you take three
days and go to Cap-Haitien by
car. Its about 170 miles and a
minim un of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours
to enjoy it most. 'So to one of
Cap Haitien's comfortable ho-
tels. For the night, g6 to the
Ciladelle the next day, retur-
ning to Port-au-Prince the third
day. Eevry mile and every


hour of this trip will be full of
urforgett-able impressions.
If you are pressed for time,
you can fly to the Cape in 45
minutes, and can make the en-
tire pilgrimage in a single day.








JACMEL.-
Lf you want another trip off-
the-beaten track go to Jacmel,
on Haiti's south coast. Jacmel,
once 'a flourishing town, still
has a considerable export bu-
siness, but is typical of many







Haitian provincial sea-coast
towns waiting foir better days
to come. Jacmel has a flavor
of its own. To get there you
can take the easy way by air,
or the adventurous -way by
road, about 60 miles, practical-
ly every mile of which has a
river crossing. Near Jacmel is

Jimmy Robinson who reports
from the grounds for Sports

Jimmy credits an unusual

duck crop in years. Reason is :.'
that farmers could not get on ; ,

LEAVING FOR THE MOON aBIENTOT,
S
The moon is available to all countries. But iii no country does the
moon execute its duty with such finesse and is less appreciated than
in Haiti. The few responsible for giving the moon more than a mere
lover's glance ate Henri Borno with his giant backyard telescope and
Father Betembourg of the .Seminaire St. Martial observatoire. whose
telescope is presently en panned.
Long ago, we used to be-
'ieve the moon was made
of green cheese. Now, sci-
Sntists have convinced us
that this controversial sate-
lyte of the Earth is nothing
more romantic than rocks,
earth and volcanic craters
notwithstanding its ro-
r l us tmantic effects and implica-
tions.
The scientists have gone
f u l t e r, fartheN today than ever in
their ceaseless quest to con
quer outer space, the
planets and so on. Gnashing
theii mathematical teeth at
the frustration of their ef-
forts to communicate with
.0 the lunar folk (if anj,), the
physicists finally have be-
coine desperate. They will
spend $10,000,000 (of Amer
ican tax-payers' money, of
course) on a man-made
moon on which they can
place inhabitant's, and
which will be within easy
-reach of 'commuters' rockets.

06oon, it seems, all the high and mighty of this world will be living
on the moon, or on an artificial satelyte of their own.

Then will the meek inherit the earth. We (the meek, that is) sha4
be able to look wistfully at the moons, real and artificial, shining
romantically'down at us and tell each other about the -man in the
moon., -green cheese., and other, more interesting, fantasies.
Maybe the world -would be a better plate to live in, too, if .all these
ambitious -explorers, go to live on the moon.

If they had sunk $10,000,000 into medical research, or used their
fabulous intellects to cure cancer, crime, poverty and degradation,
the world would have been a much better place to live in.

But, instead, they get things into sfich a mqss that they want to
. leave it all and-go to a cleaner world. Hence the moon-and-other-pla-
nets idea.

LAWRENCE THOMPSONa


HEAT DIDN'T PUT DAVY IN SHORTS


BERNARD DIETRICH who
writes a 'clever column in Phe
Haiti Sun, -Port-au-Prince, had
some 'fun recently with one" 'of
this corner's offerings in which
I spoofed the men who expose
their hairy legs in public.
But he's shooting a shotgun in
a rifle contest when he picks -on
iie for saying that.Davy Crockett
never wore shorts.
(Davy didn't wear Palm Beach
slacks, either, writes Diedrich.
He wore btickskins, simply be-
vause he was making a living in
the forest, and in pretty cold
weather, not in New York or
Port au Prince in the summer
heat.,>
SThat's a sweeping statement,
suh, 'and an inaccurate generali-
zation.
You'll have to look for thore
than climate to explain why our
boy Davy didn't go around with
his knees exposed. It gets right
warm in Tennessee in the summ-
er months and when he went to
Washington for a spell in ': Con-
gress, he ran -into some of "the
most stifling heat on this conti-
nent, not even counting the hot
air from Capitol Hill. Neither he
nor Andrew Jackson wore knee
pats while in Florida. What's


So xthe King of America's wild
frontiers (according to some his-
torians -) did not wear shorts.
So it was not because of the cold.
So what ?' Davy Crockett has
never been called the Christian
Dior of the Americas.
Davy was a hero. But there
have been heroes who exposed
their knees. Roman gladiators
have been symbols of courage
for many centuries. Their knees
were bare.

the Picts from Scotland's high-
lands who gave the English such
a hard time and made the Bri-
tons blue with woe (and woad)
passed down the bonnie kilts
which ,are now worn by many of
Scotland's most valliant regi-
ments. K!lts are rugged.
It stands to reason that a man
with his legs free from clinging
cloth can get about better and
put on a better performance than
his convention-curbed contempo-
raries.
The. most rugged men usually
excel at rugged sports. English
soccer and rugby players, tennis
stars the world over, boxers,


more, it. gets right smart hot
down Texas-wAy, where Davy
;was no stranger and where he
died.
OH NO, the king of our wild
frontier didn't spend all of his
time in sub-zero weather. He
was in warm places where an
Englishman would glady have
worn shorts,but neither he nor
his American contemporaries
would have worn such attire in
public any more than they'd have
gone to the store in just their
long underwear.
An what's more, our friend of
The Haiti Sun ends up by concede
ing that shorts never- have been
popular in the suimnAier heat of
Port an Prince.
Th2 nearest thing to shorts
that has ever been adopted in
Haiti outside of Carnival time
is the three-quarter denim pants
of' the mountain men, writes
Diedrich.

All we have to say to that is
Yaaaaah, yaaaaah, Mr. Diedric.
Over here, I don't like shorts des
pite thd fact they're being adopt-
ed.'Over there, you like'.'em, but
nobody else does. Looks to me
like we're both fighting losing
battles.

discarded


Explorers who tamed the wild
jungles, Army officers, battling
sea-dogs of the Navy they
seek the comfort and 'freedom
of shorts when the thermomet
er starts bubbling over.
The boxers of long ago started
out ift long under-drawers, but
they soon found that foot-work
-:uffefed in the cause of modesty
and shorts came to the rescue.
An indignant Air Force Colo-
nel passed on a message to
Thompson that the U.S.A.F. quar
tered in the tropics went into
shorts this month apd are they
glad !
Of course, as we said before,
we are totally averse to Bom-
bay Bloomers'- the exotic-hued,
flare-tailed monstrosities affect-
ed by crtflse-ship passengers.
But we can hardly imagine a
neater, mqinoe masculine outfit
than trim, well-made shorts.
.And.-.%we are happy to report
that the battle isn't going so bad-
ly for this '.ype of attire: at least
a dozen knees have been added
to the ranks since our last sur-
vey.

rit which spurs Jamaicans to win
laurels in international sports

Jolicoeur declared that hlie was


greatly impressed wirn 1ie leading
.Jamaicans he had met.

Among these he listed Sir Ale
sander Bustamante, former Pri-
me Minister of Jamaica, the pre-
sent First Minister Norman Man-
ley LLD (Oxen), Theodore Scaly,
Managing Editor of the Gleaner3,
and merchant leaders Abe Issa
and John Hanna.


Aubelin Jolicoeur, *Le Nouvel-

a change of heart towards Jamai
ca after his visit there with the
Dejean Chorus last month, ac-
cording to his confessions front-
paged by *Le Nouvelliste;D Sep-

The busy young camera-man ad-
mitted that he had had several op
portunities to visit Jamaica, and
had turned them down because
he thought of tho island as ,:a
boring place,;.
He even passed up a chance of
studying journalism on cThe Dai-
ly Gleaner when Mr. Elias Nous
tas( manager of the cBelle Creo-
le-j offered him'a scholarship.
Mr. Nuustas, a former stu-
dent at Calabar High School in
Kingston and a cousin of wealthy
Jamaican hotel-owner-merchant
Abc.Issa, has long tried to con-
vince Jolieocur that Jamaica is
the ideal spot to learn the type
of .Tnurnalism Haiti needs. But,
says Aubelin: <.I was suffering
from a complex about the is-

The complex quickly evapor-

marvelled.
He also commented that in
Jamaica children don't go to
school, the schools come to them.
Every square kilometer of the
country possesses a school, he
reports.
Taken around the University

a student, L.. Stanford, Aubelin
wondered at the extent of the

Flaming Vision
At T. J. Grant's

A passing automobilist, Mr.
Fred Wilson, saw sheets of fire
shootir.g from the window of T.J.
Grant's residence at Bourdon at
11:00 o-clock Friday night.
Stopping his car, he rushed
to the 'house. As he reached the
porch, the flames died down, and
looking in the open door, he saw
Mr. Grant stretched unconscious
on the floor.
Mr. Grant opened his eyes as
,Mr. Wilson entered the house,
and rose to' his feet. He could
give no explanation of the fire
or his condition. Mr. Wilson said
Grant appeared dazed and to be
suffering from shock.
