S..During las: week, shots tired in the night in sorns: quarters of

ever. The tw'o poles are certain-
ly Paris and New York. In Paris,
there is the Theatre National Po-
pulaire. Its actors visit the su-
burbs and thie provinces, acting
in such a. way that the audience
is drawn to participate. In the
U.S.A., too, the actors sometimes
leave the Broadway stage for the
p)rovincesi...
*But in ")aiti, have we a popu-
lar theater? Can we say that the
Haitian theatrical movement is
directly aimed at the people?:
Difficulties
First, before actors, or a thea-
ter may be successful, certain
difficultiesmust be met and over-
come, Moriseau-Leroy said.
He has personally contributed
to filling the need for good dra-
ma, ii Creole, but his production
has rot been prolific. Neverthe-
less his efforts to encourage
young authors to write in Creo-
le have been rewarded, and Mo-
risseau hopes to find new talent
to fill this gap.

Nobody wishes to invest in a
theatrical venture, and the pro-
blem of staging is acute. But, the
dramatist 'said, in Europe and
the U.SA the problem has been
solved by acting in the open air,
using improvised stages. This
would be a good idea for Haiti,
the speaker continued, pointing
out the advantages of a mobile

COMPETITION KEEN IN TOURIST TRADE
Haitian tourist interests are in a dangerously elated state
because o the un-hoped-for boom in the industry over the
past five or six years. As the total of visitors keeps climbing,
and the airlines-and shipping companies begin to pay more
and. more attention to this Republic, hotel owners and travel
agents are beginning to wear complacent expressions and lay
back on their oars.
But a look around at our Caribbean neighbours would be
enough to dispel the most deep-rooted sense of well-being,
and rdrive home the hard truth that we are lagging behind in
the touristic race, in spite of all our progress.
As a tourist resort, Haiti could not be better equipped by
.nature: towering mountains, a glorious history, abundant art
and character, hospitable people, and a whimsical, enchanted
atmosphere that simply spell-binds visitors front more in-
diistrialised countries.
The'Government policy is one of encouragement to tour-
ism, and private enterprise is being given more than enough
help in this field.
Yet, e x p a ifs i o fi is slow, in comparison with the islands
around us. .
In Nassau, Bahamas, tourist travel climbed 23% over 1954,
and tourism interests are preparing 'for a further rush with
a big project at Coral Harbour on the southern side of New
Providence opposite Nassau itself. Grand Bahama has been
made a free port.
SIn Janiaica, PAA District Sales Manager Jimmy Green con-
fidently foretold a 30% increase of 1954!s 112,000 tourists
-3,500 will belong to some kind of incentive or post convent-
ion group according to the books. Some 4,000 rooms will be
available kor tourists thIs year.
Work .has started on a new 250 bed hotel, surrounded by
45.-beautiful :acres and .boasting one of the. best white-sand
beaches in tihe Caribbean' while'yet another luxury hotel is
..gong up near Jamaica Inn on the North Shore, under the
guidance of Cy Elkin; the have 40 European Plan Suites. .
Grand Toums to scenic spots ard all organized as are rafting
on the Rio Grande, near Port Antonio, and visits to historic
Port Royal.9 '
The Dominican Republic is perhaps the most determined
competitor in the field today. A hotel building-boom is on
across the border, with the air-cohditioned 300-room. cAmbas-
sador* leading the field.
Tourist traffic figures rise steadily each month.
Even tiny St. Thomas is showing real signs of activity, and
new hotels are constantly going up.
Haiti, more than twice as large as Jamaica, three times thq
size of Puerto Rico, and many times St. Thomas or any
of the Lesser Antilles, looks for a grand total of 60,000 tour-
ists this year.%
'Ithough this is a 20% increase over last year's figures, it
doesn't look very impressive beside Jamaica's e x p e c t e d
195,000.
Throughout the Republic, hotel owners are, adding new
rooms,. planning g new hotels; but the work is not making rapid
enpughl processs.
Dreams like Clbou-Chou, Bay, The Moody Plaza,. and such-
ma1nmoth projects are sorely needed. Their builders should
spied up construction to try and get in on the t6prist gold
.ush while the getting's good.

on this Columbus Day is to be
found in Argentina. A tyranny
has'been overthrown by the will
of the people as well as the arm-
ed forces, and the new regime
gives promise of leading Argenti-
na toward the democracy for
which she has long been ripe.
Nothing more important has hap-
pened in -Latin America in recent
years. When we; are inclined to
feel discouraged at the continued
prevalence of rigid dictatorship
in countries like Venezuela, Ni-
caragua and Ihe Dominican Repu-
blic we can think of Argentina
and feel hopeful.
The long, hard struggle for li-
berty is bound to have its ups
and downs. Sometimes the clock
is set back, as it was by General
Batista in Cuba and as it is today
by Lieutenant General Rojas Pi-
nilla in Columbia. And yet we
also see great countries like Brazil
and Chile clinging to their hard-
won democratic institutions in
spite of enormous economic and
social difficulties. Other countries,
like Ecuador and Bolivia, have
gone a long way toward political
liberty:. O1l-"stablished democra-
cies like Uruguay and Costa Ri-i
tca. go t.hei- customary ways
_j, freedom.
Militarism is still the greatest
single eemy of liberty in Latin
Americ but, as Mexico has prov-
ed, a military tradition can be
broken if the people are-permitt-
ed to vote regularly for their po-
litical leaders. Communism made
its one great bid in Guatemala
and went dcwn to ignominous de-
feat. When the people are given
a chance to express their will it
is always a vote for freedom. The I
choice may fall on a demagogue,
but as Eduardo Santgs, ex-Ptesi-
dent of Colombia, said yesterday,
the peoples of the Americas will
.never choose dictators'.
There is a common moral and
idealistic base in the Americas.
When organizations like the In-
ter-American Press Association
fight fox freedom of the press in
the hemisphere they are giving
expression to the ideals of the
people in every country. This is
not intervention, except in a sense
mentioned by Adolf Berle in one
of yesterday's talks. 'Noninter-
vention never meant that there
could not be intervention by
ideas,' he said.
The role of the' United States
in Latin America in. this regard is
one that will, need clarification
after the Argentine revolution.
There has been much emphasis on
anti-communism, and on winning
the support of Latin-American na-
tions in the Organization a Ame-
rican States. and. iu, the United


Nations. Some sacrifices have
been made and are being made in
deference to those aims. Nonin-
tervention is a. precious and ne-


cessary principle of hemisphericF
affairs, but it can never be for-
gotten that the United States is
so powerful economically and po-
litically that whatever we do or
do not do greatly affects the indi-
vidual Latin-American countries,
and in that sense is a form' of in-
tervention, whether we intend it
or not. It is an open secret, that
if the United States hMd expressed
its displeasure at ithe stealing of
the Venezuelan election by parti-
sans of Colonel Perez Jimenez in
November, 1952, he would have
drawn back, or at least compro-
mised with his opposition. By

Wise & Otherwis

By T. J. GRANT


-Yea, if a.man live many years, let him rejoice in them all; but
let him remember the days of darkness for they shall be many.
In this the twi-light of my life, I am much given to meditation. I1
find peace and comfort in musing (that's deep meditation) about what
my life might have been had I chosen to walk other roads than the
one I have followed. But I shall never know what might have been.
But this I do know. Peace and contentment I have found because
ambition has never burned in me, Wealth has never seemed worth
working for; envy has never seared my soul, hatred has never harried
my heart nor has the lust for power ever pervaded me.-
-Smug, stupid, complacent' you say. -Like a well-fed pig.. Wrodg,
my friends.
I am a highly intelligent man who has had a good life, with a full
share of pain and bitter grief; with more than I deserve of love, joy
and friendship. And in this, the twi-light of my life, I. have within
me a treasure.house of memories. Some of them fragrant as scented
flowers, some like the quiet of a summer evening carrying the soft
music 'of violins. Music sometimes gay and lilting, sometimes wistful
and sad. "
You know now why I fe.r not the coming of the days of darkness,
and' why I rejoice in all my years. And you know now why I would
not exchange one or all of them for the wealth of 0. J. Brandt or
the youth of Jehn Desquiron.
A.4nd the strong men shall bow themselves, ,
I was sitting at.my desk the other night reading, when I came to the
line above. Then came to my mind the thought of three strong men,-
Mussolini, Hitler and Peron. All three bowed, two in death, one in
life. All three burned by ambition, greedy for wealth and filled with
the' lust for power. 'All is vanity', I thought. -Power, glory and wealth
for a moment, Then ignominy'.
Suddenly, I was conscious of someone breathing beside me. .Turning
my head, I saw a slim, well-dressed man witli the calm, serene face of
an ascetic, and slender, well-shaped hands clasping the armins of the
chair ig, which he sat. He was a stranger to meand so washis-chair.
I had never before seen either of hfm. "
Amazement made me forget my manners. -Where in hell -did you
come from?. I asked, sharply.
-Abaddon, naturally,, he replied: '


Abaddon I had never heard of it and the -naturally,. irritated
me. -What do you mean?, I asked. -You ha.vej the nerve of the devil w
coming in here uninvited with your -Abaddon, naturally. p1
-Naturally' was his reply. "I am Satan, called the devil. Abaddon te
is the name of my palace in Hells. He had a splendid voice', rich, low
and harmonious. *JIt sounded just likq my vice. tc
Naturally, his voice impressed me, as did his appearance, but s Ca
story fell flat. 4Don't take me for an idiot., I said. -Who are you Ind le
what do you want?,* ,'i
He smiled. I am Satan, Lord of Hell-, he said. 'My name is ,Luci-
fer, and I wihnt you'. As he spoke, he held up one hand which grew n
luminous, becoming brighter -and brighter, until it seemed to be flam- U
ing. I1
-Pretty good., I told him. -Plastic paint on one hand and an ultra-
violet ray flash concealed in the other. It would fool a lot of people.
What's your game, anyhow?. .. =
-I see you know something of stage magic, Mr. Grant,, he replied,
smiling. -But you are wrong as to mymodus operandi. This will.be
clear to you in a moment. But to answer your question, I an' Satan
and I want you. I need men like you in my organization..
I began to believe the chap was insane but decided to 'play along
just to see what would happen. 'What have you to offer?. I asked.
-Eternal life in Abaddon as one of my aids', he-said. ePOwer, an& '
all the delights that go with power for'time everlasting. Frequent tips I'
to earth if ever you hunger for earthly pleasures,. |'
I was sure now that the man was' mad. So I asked, 'What willI
have to do for all this? i
eJust sign heree, he replied, producing an open sheet of foolscap
and a fountain pen. His sleight of hand was toes. I can -do the same
trick with a bouquet of artificial flowers or a rolled sheet of'paper,
but the open sheet had me puzzled. The man was an artist.-"'
(Author's Note:-The editor is so stingy with.-his space-.'tht you

and his strange visitor.)

PRESIDENTIAL DECREE STATES RULES

FOR TRAFFIC ON REPUBLIC'S HIGHWAYS

)Continued from Page 7


* the gutter and is reserved exclu-
sively for pedestrians.

,Article 6: The public highway
is made up of a network of ar-
terial roads of varied dimensions
which connect with 'each other
in place called eroisee de che-
mins>, ejonction, or ocarrefourn,
There are, therefore, main roads.
crossing them, and roads for. hea-
vy traffic.
A road is a main road by com-
parison with all those which
Smeet-it. It becomes a side road
when it meetsanother road. It
is a road for heavy traffic when
so designated by police.

Afticle 7. For their convenien-
ce and their common security, it
Sis obligatory to all persons using
the road in towns and populated
areas strictly to observe the pre-
, sent rules, the violation of which
constitutes an infraction foreseen
and punished by law.

Article 8. For the convenience
and security of all those who use
the pUblic highway it is forbid-
den to throw, to place momenta-
rily or to leave on the public
road objects of any form at-all.


Nevertheless, in what concerns
construction materials if the
state of the place does not allow
them to be taken into the proper-
ty, a special authorisation may
be obtained from the' police, per-
'mitting their deposition on the
public road. In this case, these
materials will be boxed around
with planks and, after nightfall,
lit by a red light and also, they
should be removed within 24
hours of the completion of the
\%ork. or of the expiration of the
delay granted' or immediately at
the first demand of the police
madein urgency.

SOUS LE SIGNE DE L'HUMOUR
Une exposition de dessins humoristiques amnricains vient de s'ou-
vrir A Paris, au Thd6tre des Mathurins. Prdcisons qu'il..ne s'agit pas
lA de ces histoires en images qu'on appelle 'comics, aux Etats-Unis,
mais de dessins isol6s avec ou sans l1gende, tels que nous les aimont
en France, et que les Americains nomment 'cartoons'.
1 On pout voir, dans le hall du theatre, les originaux de 58 dessins
executes par quinze artistes, choisis parmi les plus rdputes, et qui
sont presque tous collaborateurs attitres du magazine MTHE NEW
YORKER. Cet hebdomadaire,( qui existe depuis 1926, pout dtre consi-
d6r6 comme l'6quivalent du PUNCH anglais, auquel il resemble par
la presentation et le format. C'est un magazine illustr6, humoristique
et littkraire, qui ne correspond exactement A aucune publication fran-
gaise du meme ordre. I] compete de tres nombreux lecteurs non seu-
Slenient A New York, mais dans l'ensemble des Etats-Unis oft ii tient
la premiere plate dans sa categorie. On peut done tenir le NEW YOR-
KER coinme particulierement representatif de l'humour americain.
Les organisateurs de cette exposition ont choisi tres heureusement
les oeuvres qu'ils nous ont envoydes d'outre-Atlantique. II y a la un
dphantillonnage complete de l'esprit americain; et meme"de l'esprit
tout cdvrt. On a souvent dit que l'humour ne passait pas les frontifres.
Cela nest vrai que dans la measure oft l'humoriste s'inspire -d'un fait
*circonstanpcid ou prend pour cible les travers de tel ou tel personnage
qu'il faut connaltre pour apprdcier la plaisanterie. Ce n'est pas le
cas ici, ou les dessins qui nous sont offers ont une portde beaucoup
plus grande. Ils resument, ils concrdtisent toute une philosophies, une
faeon de consider les choses, les 6vdnements et les homes. En ce
sdns, 1'exposition du theatre des Mathurins est A la lois un divertis-
sement et un enseignement.

A Caterpillar DWIO Tractor with a

speed, hauling. These matched units have
an available top speed of 24.5 MPH.
The No. 10 Scraper has a capacity of
*8.7 cu. ycd. struck and 11 cu. yds.
heaped. With this tractor-scraper, cycle
time is cut to a minimum. The No. 10
Scraper provides positive ejection of the
stickiest materials.
The DW10 is powered by'a 115 HP
Caterpillar Diesel Engine. This engine


lowers operating costs by using low cost,
non-premium fuels, witliout fouling. The
brakes on the trailing unit take hold an
instant before the brakes on the tractor,
thereby preventing jackknifg and assur-
ing safe operation. Mechanical steering is
aided by an hydraulic mechanism, giving
the driver complete control and a "feel

Sthis machine has a place on nearly

Military Background

Mr. Le Bel's diplomatic career
began in April 1944 when
he was iamed Chief of the
Freikch Liaison Mission to the
U.S XII th. Army in Paris. In
October of the following year he
was appointed Military Attach6
to the French Embassy in Was-
hington and held that post until
December 1947 when he left the
service.
From March to December 1948,
Mr. Le Bel was director of the
Joseph Lew (Inc.) Import-Export
Agency, but by June 1952, he was
back in the Foreign Service -as
cCharg6 de l'Assistance Techni-
que et Specialiste de Zone* for
theUN in Libya.. One of the first
countries to receive U.N. aid,
Libya was set on its feet by the
mission which aided in setting up'
the new Government.
He held that appointment until
March 1952 when he was named
Inspector and *Adjoint Special*
to the General Agent of UNKRA.
Mr. Le Bel came to Haiti direct
from this pest.

Aid To Haiti

In an interview before his de-
parture, Raoul Aglion told the
<'Suii, qHaiti has made a consi-
derable effort to help itself. It
has a Five Year Plan. The Go-
vernment under the. enlightened
and progressive leadership of its
President has appropriated large
sums to build roads, schools and
hospitals. Its contributions have
matched and sometimes exceeded
those made by the United Na-
tions... /
*Do you ,know that Haiti
spends 13 per cent of its an-
nual budget for public'education.
The highest any country has eyer


allocated for learning ? The Unit-
ed Nations has sent experts to ad-
vise the Government and train
Haitian specialists.2
Mr. Aglion went on to explain
that U.N. experts have covered
many fields* mentioning the con-
tribution of World Health Or-
ganization doctors to the elimi-
nation of yaws-now totally wiped
out. He referred also to the an-
ti-malaria campaign being carri-
ed out by the Government. UNI-
CEF and WHO.
In Agriculture, too, the U.N.
has assisted in the introduction
of more scientific, mqre produc-
tive, farming and livestock-breed-
ing methods. Silos, reforestation
fish farming (by the FAO) and
the dissemination of tilipia, a
prolific fish which now forms
a staple for Artibonite cdwvellers,
were brought in. by the United
Nations.
UNESCO has tested and expe-
rimented. in the field of primary
education and has undertaken
such projects as the Marbial Pi-
lot Project which included edu-
cation of tlie'-peasants in reading,
soil conservation, contbur plough-
uing. health, 'anitation and a num-
ber of cottage industries such as
weaving, ceramics and, tanning.-
UNESCO-trained rural leaders
have started an economic revolu-
tion among the peasants who 'for-
merly knew nothing about manu-

Similar organizations mush-
roomed across the country and
in 1920 the Junior Chamber of
Commerce of the United States
was formed. During the same
year, similar organizations were
founded in Great Britain and Ca-
nada. The 6lollowing year, young
Australians cnd New Zealanders
followed suit.

and public service embodied in
the constitution of the Junior
Chamber of Commerce have

ber of Commerce, founded in

ing at Panama City in 1946. The
