Joe Yancey Urges:


GET BEHIND A NATION-WIDE PROGRAMME

TO SPARK LOCAL INTEREST IN ATHLETICS


more special interest in Haiti.
Scheduled for departure No-
vember 5, Joe declares, 4 have
to go too soon, but have work to
do in other countries.,
He has lectured and coached in
England, Cuba, and Bermuda, and
meanwhile has toured Europe and
South America with interracial
track teams from the U.S At pre-
sent he is touring the Caribbean
for the State Department.
Though more widely known for
his voluntary work in the sports
field, Joe once wrote newspaper
columns, won a name as a sports
writer. Before that, his laurels
were won in actual athletic coin-
petition and the local boys learn-
ed thpt his famed 100m. start is not
much impaired by the years.
In his business life, Joe is an
agent for the U.S. CoUllector of
Internal Revenue.

more devoted training on the part
of athletes and more incentive to
compete.
He touched on the invaluable
publicity to be gained for the
sponsors of such a competition,
and pointed out that Jamaica's
tourist trade benefited immense-
ly when the Track Squad piled
up successes at Helsinki.
There were people who hadn't
even heard of Jamaica. They
knew about it mighty soon when
the boys won those gold medals
at the Olympics>, Joe explained.
Publicity For Spoirts
Joe also suggests that newspa-
pers get into the act by report-
ing foreign sports events, inter-
inational competitions, individual
outstanding achievements.
In the United States, the big
dailies eve" sponsor their own
competitions and build them up
on their columns until national in-
terest is aroused.
If the same sort of thing were
done here, even on a smaller
scale, the country's future in
athletics would be very encourag-
ing. Joe points out, too, that de-
ve!oping the ideals and principles
of sports will be a major step in
combating juvenile delinquency.
The children on the street have
-very little to do and unless they
are given healthy interests they
will turn to crime, he warned
Your Reporter in a post-speech
interview Wednesday.
Family Man
The moral welfare of the young
people concerns Joe as much or
more than their athletic achieve-
ments.
A family man, the 43-year-old
New Yorker and his wife Josephi-
ne. have three daughters. Jose-
phline,"Michlle and Yvonne. "The
three girls are promising swimm-

A BREAK IN OUR SOCIAL ARMOUR
Traliquil Port au Prince, unlike most cities of the world, s
has no crime and very little disturbance originating in the J1
Supper strata of its society. But a number of incidents this k
past weekend showed a sharp deviation from the strict code
of behaviour which has always distinguished the Haitian man t
or woman 'de bonne families. v
These incidents, though not cataclysmic in themselves, ne- I
vertheless indicate a breach in the social armour of our com-
munity. 1
In each case, friction would not have occurred had the pro-
tagonists taken time out for consideration.
Haitian culture, based on post-revolutionary French prin-
ciples, lias long been respected by the rest of the world, as
a reminder of the gracious manners and ideals of a more
mellow epoch. '
But the incidents of last week-end pointed to a departure
Irom the deference to Reason, good breeding and good taste S
which has characterized this Society. Surprising weaknesses
were uncovered intemperance, prejudice, ill-will. 5
The gradual modern trend appears to be a denial of the
virtues of good manners aqd.tact;good breeding and good '
taste are coming to be regarded as signs of weakness, arro-
gance is the proof of strength. r
Incidents like these are disquieting to true lovers of noble
ideals, for they seem to show 1hat the last bulwark of gra-
cious Uvig-Lg is 'crumbling into social anarchy.

NEWSPRINT PRICES GOING UP
Newsprint prices are sky-rocketing, and U.S. newspapers
are squealing. But they are not the only ones being victimis-
ed by the greed of paper manufacturers.
The ,,Miami Herald* last week instituted a detailed invest-
igation. o[ Canadian newsprint profits b e c a u.se newsprint
prices were up.to, $131 per ton. Here newsprint has gone up
twice i the past month, now hovers at $15:45 per bale.
The Herald found that actually newsprint manufacturers
are enjoying a record year, Bowater Paper Corp., Ltd. nearly
doubled its profits last year. And ;the stock exchange shows
anticipation of continued high profits in the industry.
What then is the cause of the rising prices? Greed, says
Ihe Herald. -
Eut, if that is the case, it is the duty of all newspaper writ-
ers bnd readers throughout the Americas, who are dependent
on North American newsprint, to do something abputt it,
through diplomatic representation, petitions or some other
means.























FISHING IS AN ASSET
Haiti is a half-island., half surrounded by water.
And, ask any spear-fishing enthusiast, that ..water is simply
teeming with fish. 'et, apart from lone pioneers like Anton
Knear. nobody bothers with angling.
The only fishermen are the commercial net-fishermen and
the Sunday skin-divers.
But Puerto Rico. with a smaller coast line and, certainly,
no higher aquatic population, is cashing in on fishermen via
a ten-team tournament -the Second International Game
Fishing Tournament- which opened there Monday.
Fishermen from all over the world were present. Newspa-
pers spread San Juan's name across the headlines. Tourists
learned that - fishing activities in the Caribbeans.
Mouth watering fish stories were reported concerning white
and blue marlin. allisor tuna and blue fin tuna.
But this was not achieved without effort. Five years of
researt. and investigation went into the location of the best
fishiug_ grounds along Puerto Rico's 300 miles of coast-line.
Launched by the tourist department the programme is pay-
ing off a hundred fold. This is Haiti's cue to exploit our own
treasure r.oves and win the fishing crowd to our coasts.

BULKY HEAD MEANS BIG BRAIN
(Dedicated to sonicm of our more top-heavy friends)
The United Press came to the rescue of large-craniumed humans
this week with the ego-salving news: -If you have a big head, chances
are you're pretty smart'.
That's the kind of press release a considerable percentage of the
local population was waiting for. IN.B. Care should be taken to dis-
tinguish between naturally big crania and swelled heads).
This cheerful opinion comes from an authoritative source, too. Dr.
T. D. Stewart one of America's most venerated anthropologists declar-
ed that there' seems to be a definite relationship, between man's
intelligence and the size of his brain.
And, he added, man's head has been getting bigger all the time.
-We don't know exactly what it is,, Stewart said, abut men and
women all over the world have been getting taller, and over the cen-
turies, the human skull has grown larger.,
The anthropologist, who is a member of the internationally famed
Smithsonian Institution, continued, In the dawn of the human race
when man possessed few skills, man's skull was much smaller than
it is today. As he advanced in wisdom, his brain and skull grew.p
Being an anthropologist, Mr. Stewart does not discuss fatheads or
other synthetic members of the -grande tate' fraternity, his theory
is purely scientific. But it is to be presumed that the number of big-
headed friends of this column falling under iMr. Stewart's classification
would not be too drastically diminished by disqualification of th'r-fat-
headed or swelled-headed categories.

PAA Executive Sees Latin America
As Potent Economic Force In Future


CTh:PN'."ATI, Ohio Latin
Amerca is destined to be -one
of the most economically power-
ful area:i of the world' in the
opinionu of Wilbur L. Morrison,
executive rice president of Pan"
American World Airways.
I'


ed. He cited a widely held be-
lief that Latin Americans -are
a poor business risk because so
many of their bonds are in de-
fault', whereas facts show that
nearly seven times as many Eu-
rop.cn bonds are actually in de-


'I


-Toda, the population of those
lands sonth of the border is just
about equal that of the United
States and Canadau, he pointed
out to diplomats and business
leaders attending a banquet of
the recently organized Midwest
Internat..;r.al Trade Development
Center in Cincinfinati.
.With ire rate of growth con.
Stinung 'C.I increase steadily, an.
other generation or so wil) see
their population double ours.
With Ilic-> standard of living and
income :t.ing steadily, Latin
Amenica -n our time will become
as rich ..-arket'as is to be found
any.l.her? tn the world,.
EuL i-,erican private enter.
priie m..-:, recognize challenges
as wel. xa chances in the field
of inter-.-.'nerican trade relations,
accorrtig to Morrison, who is in
charge of PAA's Latin American
Division.
Amonoo .other things, the PAA
executive pointed out, a number
of Eunj'-.-an nations are making.
increasimIly strong bids for a
good shi.-e of the Latin American
business.
North American businessmen
must correct some of their own
misconceptions, Morrison del'ar-

fault as there are Latin Ameri- c,
can. t(
Private businessmen, he added,
can do much. to assure Latin ent
Americans that the United States 7
is taking a consistent 'thoughtful '
interest- in their economic pro
blems.
,The greatest single opportu-
nity 'to strengthen relationships
between the United States pand
the other American republics
lies in overcoming the present
lack of sympathetic understand-
ing on both sides with regard
to economic problems,, the PAA
executive asserted.
Morrison pointed out that the
.highest U.S government sources
have recognized the 'powerful
influence, of such groups as the
Midwest International Trade De-
velopment Center, whose memb-
ership of prominent industrial-
ists, bankers and pu publishers is
devoted to stimulating business
interchange between the Midwest-
ern industrial area and all free
foreign lands.
-Statistics fully support present
contentions that the trade trend
is to the south., according to
Morrison.

4 per cent of the U.S. imports,
compared to 22 per cent for Eu-
ope, he declared. Latin Amer-
ca also leads Europe as a-mark-
t for U.S. exports, 27 per cent
o 25 per cent, he added.
In the five-year period from
950 to 1955, the PAA executive
ited, U.S. tourist spending in
nada was up only 10 per cent,
while the U.S. tourist spending
i Mexico increased three times
iat much, 30 per cent. Expen-
itures by foreign tourists in the
United States was estimated at
more than $600,000,000 in 1954,
Nith Latin American visitors ac-
ounting for about a third of the
)tal, he added.
'Most of this business, incid-
tally, was developed and pro-


moted by the transportation com-
panies-, Morrison pointed out.
'Little, if any, has been sought
through advertising and promot-
ion by United States or areas'.
As bigger, faster airplanes
bring the people of the world
ever-closer together, enhance-
ment of world trade is bound to
follow, Morrison said. He point-
ed oit that by 1958 Pan Ameri-
can will begin to get 'deliveries
df 600-mile-an-hour, 131-passeng
er jet airliners. Pan American
tast week became the first U.S.
flag airline to purchase jets,
with a $269,000,000 order for 45
130 m.p.h. 300 passenger jets.
'They will shrink our globe by
40 per cent-, Morrison comment-
ed. 'There will be virtually no


I
md.jor city in the free world that
you cannot reach from Cincinna-
ti within 12 hours'.
-The economy of this hemis-
phere is a whole composed of in-
ter-related parts,, Morrison em-
phasized. -The more..smoothly
those parts mesh, the stronger
is the whole.,
-Within this/stout framework
of Western civilization we can
stand firMnly confident together
in time of peril, and progress
mightily together in peace.
Through the establishment of
abiding cooperation based on the
mutual respect and friendship
that grows as people come to
know each other better, we will
forge steadily ahead in construc-
ting a better world.,

,cREFLETS, Enlarges On Theme
Of Sun's cSalt Production, Article


Details of modern salt produc-
tion were obligingly furnished by
the new French-language review
,Reflets d'1jaitip in its last issue,
prompted-the article (Notre Do-
cumentaire) declared by the
cHaiUti-Sun editorial of October
9 titled. eSalt Production Could
be Increased and Haitian Econo-
- my Would Benefitp.


Guy Durosier
To Marry Dancer
t
Guy Dur-sier, Haiti's top-rank-
ing crooner- who is now. piling up
suc'sses -at. the' Delwood. coun-
try club near New York has topp-
ed all previous triumphs with his
latest achievement.
Golden-voiced Guy has won
the hand of Jessie Young, a
.eFreneh Hinduw girl dancing at
his club and the pair will be
Coupled November 25.
Mentionhig the forthcoming
altar engagement Guy under-
states: o-Jessie is an attractive
girl. Evidence on hand points to
more than attract iveness.
Though optimistic about his
chances abroad, the Haitian sing-
er -cnfesses to occasional home-
sickness. Wish I were you: he
admitted in a recent letter to a
friend in Haiti.


'Now that the price of salt has
risen from 12 gourdes per barrel
to 40 gourdes, we think this ques-
tion deserves study, the intro-
duction to the article explained.
The writer Georges Belin sup-
ports the broad lines of this news-
paper's editorial, but warns that
increasing salt production is not
quite as easy as we may be led
to believe.
Evidently 3 ppeclalist in this
line, Mr. Belin also supported our
plea that moderii production me-
thods be adopted to replace the
archaic system currently in use
here. He argues that not-only the
quantity but also the quality is
affected by out-dOted salt-pro-
duction methods.
He supported. his statement by
a detailed description of the Ca-
margue salt mines in France, and
an account of the results obtain-
ed.

HAITI SUN___


Laughter Lightens Bur

"of October's Red-Tape


October is a very difficult
mouth because of the bills one
has to pay and the inspection of
the ear, which comes every three
months, one of the tedious trifles
in the life of the motorist in Hai-
ti.
It is an order that you must
have your car inspected before
o October 31. Your Motorist, hav-
ing located his licence, and
white. card that shows owner-
ship of the vehicle, sped out to
the large (Quonsen-hut) station
Sone afternoon last week in the
hope of sneaking through, and
dreading the long queue of auto-
mobiles that could mean the loss
of half an hour.
Humour
Arriving at the airfield at the
end of the queue, the wait be-
came longer than usual because.
one of the two lanes of inspection
was out of commission. So Your
Motorist looked around and was
surprised to note the humour in
the surroundings.

A car appeared as a drunk
would from a high class club,.
pushed out by the attendants. It
seemed he was endeavouring to
enjoy his wait by playing his ra-
dio and when his car, at the end
of a lively mambjo, found itself
at the head of the line, it
couldn't marchero as the battery
was dead.
Change Of Face
The arrogrant camion drivers
that traverse the rugged terrain
of Haiti and seemingly hold their
brightly-coloured Voituress, in
contempt even though they have
named it after some saint, are here
seen to fondle the cars with great
care and put their shirt-sleees, to
i


use polishing vision through
wind-screen.
Then a young briseurn in
handsome convertible sudden
becomes a nervous wreck b
cause he finds himself trapped
between cars and has forgott
both licence and automobile r
gistration at home. He quidck
commissions a friend with Ulicen
to act as chauffeur.
The Wrecks
The surroundings are by
means dull- Semi-pastoral wi
high grass growing over a clu
er of more than two dozen wrec
which vary from old private ea
to camiouctes. Upon enqui
from the young soldier who brisk
ly scrapes off the old ticket th

earlier in the evening at Belle-
vue. The dentist had Christened
his son that morning and report-
edly, had been celebrating.
Mr. Grant told the Suh that
he had be.i invited to Dr. Mevs
table by another couple and
while there had polite conversa-
tion wth Mrs. Mevs, learning
thai she was the former Miss
PierreALouis -from Bainet, aid
discussing other impersonal sub-
jects.
The cSu,;x humnourist said he
jocularly remarked that Mrs.
Mevs' husband, though not what
he would call a handsome mai,
had a certain nobility about his
face, rather like that of a Ro-
man Senator*. Mr. Grant records
the laady appeared displeased.
T. J. Grant said he attempted
no further pleasantries &nd as
the evening wore on he began to
feel very sleepy. He explained to
the Sun* that he was cnot as
young as he used to bes, and that
he was accustomed to retiring by
10:00 p.m. He also said he had
had a lot to drink.,
When his chauffeur Dagobert
Innocent came to take him home
the columnist was half-asleep on
the table, and as he rose, his legs
stiff from sitting, he said. He,
stumbled against Mrs. Mevs'
chair, the columnist /continued
and clutched at the back of it to
avoid falling. ,
He adds that he bowed to Mrs.
Mevs and asked her to pardon
him..
Grant said he left the club and
.went home to sleep. The next
thing he knew, the old man said,
is thfiat he was being struck vi-
igously with a pistol and Dr Mevs'
fis ts .- -.
