KEEP UP WITH THE JET AGE
SBowen Field is shrinking rapidly that is in comparison
to the airliners landing on the airstrip built by Pan Amercan
several years ago.
Over the past five years, tourist travel to Haiti has increase
ed at a rate which has left transportation agents, travel agents
and officials gasping in amazement. To match this' rapid
growth, and to keep pace with the trend in the rest of the
world, airlines serving Haiti have been using bigger and fast-
Convairs and DC 3s are now 411 but obsolete, and the DC
4s are giving way to DC ,6s. Space is becoming a precious
commodity qn our lone landing field.
Now most of the major airlines in the world.have ordered
jets which will be delivered in the next few years, and most
countries -especially tourist resorts- are far sighted enough
to see the writing 'on the wall. I
Our neighbours, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and the Dominican
Republic are rolling out welcome mats for the jets in the
form of more, longer landing strips.
Haiti's only effort in this direction has been the planning,
and siting of a new airport by an imported expert Who report",,
edly gave the nod to Croix des Bouquets as the most practic-
2 able place.
A leading tourist authority warned: *If Haiti doesn't look
out, it will' be by-passed. Perish the thought that planes will
lanu in Cludact i'rujiiio and passengers will be transferred to
smaller craft for the flight to Port au Prince... But that's
; what will happen if we don't prepare for the coming of the
Jet Age in tourism,.

xis interrupted to declare:
eSince the ,rRevue Indig&ne", the
question under discussion has
been that of poetic art. I would
like to ask if in this poem ;he
author wished to give a poetic
art? I would like to know if in
our poetic art we should not have
passed the stage of wishes.
aIt would be a question their
of knoowhig if. in short to write a
poem should be to reply to some-
thing. I would say that the poet
of the twentieth century obeys
what others have called the 'so-
cial dernmaid. If the hand-book
may be followed, poetry on the
contrary enters a man through his
emotion. Here in this poem a so-
cial problem has been presented.
(Clarifying the question)
.;'. : ;
.- .: ; ..,_
Mr. Jacques S. Alexis
eI felt that in aDiacoutes much
more than wishes was presented
I felt that here problems of re-
action in the face of certain si-
tuations were presented ...
c I'wished to ask Dorsinville if
he has defined a poetic art which
the young people may borrow for
their songs. Should one hold to
the descriptive aspect or the as-
pect of solving problems ?s
'Pour celebrer ]a Terre is
written, in the same veini as eNa-
tif-NatalI A very long poem is
always poetic art. It immediate-
ly presents the following pro-
blem: why have I left the form
employed in oNatif-Natali. The
problem of message as well as
that of language must be faced.
Is the poet the. scribe of the
masses, or does he try to speak
for the masses ?
In ocPour celebrer la terrem,
there is one thing that is quite
curious 'that- the author, while
using modern French poetic tech-
nique, feels embarrassed some-
times. He'bas tried to give to this
modern form, a fort which will
utter the thought of a man of the
Haitian people. He feels a need'
not to speak for himself, not to be
the orator that he is but to be
an orator of 'the peolpje. It is a
very rhetorical poem. My conclu-
sion is that Dorsinville, also, has
arrived at a dead end and cannot

met of his Turkey. In this song
present problems intervene. Does
Dorsinville think that our poetic
art should express the reality of
our country? You have spoken of
the problem of the peasant, of
his production. But is this all?
Should our young poets orient
themselves to this descriptive me-
Deep thought is shown by audience at reading of the poem. In the
backgrouZ.nd, Mr. Lucien Montas, at the left, Mr. Daniel Arty sxid at
the right Miss'aoumer beside Mr. Jacques Alexis.
The poet has greater liberty
than the economist or the sdciolo-
gisf He .has the liberty of the
choice of the method which he
will employ It is understood that
in this noem. much is descriptive.
But I have wished also to pre.-
sent the problem of the peasant,
of his life in the niidst of a given
form of ci'vlisatlon. Instead .of so-
lutions I have proposed a picture
of the future, that is to say an
ordering of .the .life of the pea-
6 coLruS. one may criticise the
choice of the poet and the choice
of method. That is why I do not
present this.poem as the quintes-
sence of poetic art.,
*I noted one passage in ,the
poem which went like this: k.
And then a'thousand smokes
A thousand steps
A thousand cries
In the paths'
In-a thousand clear rays
Hope on! the way. of the beasts
towards the cistern '
The hope of the smoke of the
Hope in thousands.
Marching along the paths.)
I would like the author 'to ex-
plain the meaning of this.
In this passage, ift is not at all
necessary to see more than that
the author has wished to put
there. It is not a symbolic passa-
ge. It is a description of the pas-
sage of the state of night.and the
state of light. There is nothing
but the purely descriptive there.
When morning comes there will
be none timid, a puff o.. r-moke
then .. etc...
At the same time there k1the
problem of the language of the
people, that of the popular pu2'
blic. This should be able to read
it. I do not think that .Diacoute-
had been -ible to attain to our
peasant classes. Then the pro-
blem of the language is a pro-
blem of -,.ant'gardes. A pro-
blem is presented, whether in'
French or Creole, we address it
to the purchasing public. -The
question is deeper, it is the ques-
tion of a poetic art: where should
Haitian Poetry turn ?
Dorsinville shows us',the pro-
blem in a moving form, certainly,
but at de;1h with little life. I
have the iunpression that we do
not see the perspective of our
people marchingiinto the future.
It is a matter, now, of surpassing
this descriptive stage, this stage
of wishing for the solution of our
prdblemi. This position should
be adopted. Roger has suggested
that dispe-,saries are necessary,
and schools,, but he doesn't say
how. We should go forward on
what has already been written.
Should each one propose his solu-
tion, his methods, the problems
will be faced. This will b6 sim-
ply a competition-a peaceful
I recall that a poem is not a so-
ciological study. I could have des-
troyad this poem. I published it.
This is to arouse comment.

Haitian Shops, Markets, Hotels
HaiLi was well represented in the 1955 Winter Vacation Preview of
the -New York Times., published Novrember 6.
Leading off an article that takes in every aspect of Haitian life from
the Iron Market to the "El Rancho., Mary R. Johnson breaks 'the
biggest news in the Haitian tourist picture. the introduction of free
port prices on favourite tourist purchases.
aDespite the fact that the small Caribbean Republic depends upon
import duties for fifty percent of its annual revenue, the Haitian Le-
gislature courageously slashed its tariff on a long list of items', Miss
Johnson said, and thereby cut retail prices approximately one-third,.
She lists the affected items as 'German cameras, Swiss watches,
Swedish crystal ware, British cashmere and bone china, and Scotob
aThe in-bond system,, the writer adds, -will be used for hard
liquor, which will be delivered to the purchaser at bis plane or ship.
Merchants wvho relied mainly on French perfumes and wines for
tourist profits are now planning to branch out in the line of European
imports, the feature-writer reports.
Bit for all that, the local products remain the best buys, and Miss
Johnson lists mahogany, sisal products and Barbancourt rum as the
top bargains in this category.
No Price Rise In Native Products
Pointing out that Haiti has 'held the price line- on its handicraft
in spite of the phenomenal 500% increase in tourists during the past
five years. Miss Johnson writes:
-You can still find a hand finished set of mahogany salad bowls...
for around $10. The excellent three-star Rum Barbancourt is a dollar
a bottle. -he five-star has been temporarily taken off the market.
Monsieur Paul Gardere, the conscientious manufacturer, says the new
supply must age for several years until it reaches the brandy-rich
mellowness appreciated by connoisseurs,.
Other Branches Of Commerce
Suddenly switching from the elegant shopping centers where ,brow-
sing customers are served rum punch., and the ever-increasing number
of modern gift shops with fixed-price policies and English speaking
clerks., Mary Johnson plunges into the midst of the ,teeming, odorous
iron market, where you may bargain for everything from tin-can chan-
deliers to beach hats.
Then back again to the streamlined facet of Haiti's capital city, and
the original theme o4 Free Port Prices. ,La Belle Creole., she reports
for the benefit of prospective tourists, -is now devoting store number
1 to .elegant displays of the European luxury items- brought in under
the new duty slashing legislation. Its proprietor is a long-time free
All in all, Miss Johason finds that 'shopping in Haiti has become a
much happier experience than ever before -and a much more pro-
fitable experience tQo.
From bargains, Missi Johnson leads the tourist on to bedrooms Wehich
she says are on a rapid production up-curve.
aMajor hotels are adding new wings and annexes to provide a total
of 600 first-class rooms for the fall and winter season., she encourages,

A short story by less Zarate
Illustrated by Luce Carpi
We never knew whether Pock
was a nickname or his real name.
In any case. we always called
him little black Pock.) He was
about thirteen in those days,
though so serioutn that he seem-
ed older: When we told him what
he was to do, he stood straight
and stiff like a soldier, while the
whites of hlis eyes-oh, so white
-danced merrily in the darkness
of his face. ,
Little.black Pock was Very de-
voted to us We were working in
the laboratory, and, thanks.to'us,
he had been assigned to our sec-
tion as messenger. His father had
also worked for the same com-
pany. The old man was rather an
an odd Negro, a mystifier, a bit
crazy, so they said. One day he
asked for retirement and disap-
peared, and it wasn't until much
later that we heard of him again.
The boy never spoke of his fath.
Every morning the little Negro
arrived on the dot. He dusted the
tables and chairs, then settled
himself comfortably and began
to sing. His voice, had an exotic
quality, and the tune-1always the
same one-mighfit have 'been beau-
tiful if Pock hadn't accompanied
his singing by beating his belly
like a drum. That seemed to amu-
se him greatly. His hands pro-

little black boy like Pock. But
you may be sure he was embar-
rassed. His eyes-showing whiter
than ever-rolled, and his hand
darted into his pocket like a
small frightened animal.
What do you have on your
finger, Pock?v I persisted.
'Don't P!e. Tell me what's
me. I've been watching you for
several fays. You never take
your hands out of your pockets.*
- At that he broke down. His eyes
filled with ears. lFhis after-
noon.-, he whispered, I'll tell
you-only you-all about it.:
He was waiting for me at five.
I had forgotten his promise, but
when I saw him I quickly took
leave of my companion. Pock
tagged along with me. He was
excited and seemed ready to bare

came to the end of his story, he
seemed to be rid of an enormous

high, and I think if we hadn't
been in the street, he'd have

We talked for a longtime. Ie

tHe won't want me there.:.
However, I promised to go, and
we agreed on a time. Pock's house
was on the outskirts of town. He
.lived alone with his father, since
his mother had died some years
before and there were no other
children. The old man did 'the
washing and Pock the cooking, if
it can be called cooking when
they consumed nothing but cc(fee

As al w a y s, Pock was
right on time. His was
a small house, happy ailid

neighborhood was deserted at
that hour. Anyone could have
committed a murder with impu-
nity. We went through a small
garden. At the threshold of the
house I asked: eWhere is your

The living room was gloomy
and dirty. It had probably been
a long time since the place had
been swept. There were glassed,
tubes, and all sorts of laboratory
equipment on the tables and
chairs. The basement stairway
was.in the inner courtyard. We
'went down and came upon a clos-
eWho's with you, Pock? ,call-
ed a man's voice.
The little Negro said my name,
and thb door was opened- not
by a human hand but by an elec-
tric mechanism somewhere inside.
The room was in almost total
darkness. I confess that at first
I was seared. I felt alone and in-
quired trem-ulniisly: cWhere are
you, Pmck?> ,
The 1'oy had disappeared. or,
at least, fallen silent. A distafit,
,cavernous voice answered: cWel-

Just then a cold hard object
touched my !egs. If I didn't yell,
it was because I couldn't. But I
stopped worrying when the boy
told me to have a seat, and I re-
alized it was a chair that had
brushed my legs. I fell into it.
Once I was seated, my eyes grew
accustomed to the shadows. At
first I saw a misty blob floating
inr the darkness. Then, something
still very undefiribd, yet more
solid. Finally it took human shape
and was just a few feet from me.

SAFETY THE '56 WVAT( HWORD
The 1956 models are here!
Take a look at those sleek lines, notice the super-powered upenda-
bility with that new, new, NEW supersonic drive and floatamatie gear-
shift. Lower than ever this year, the new cars are looking more and
more like high-powered atom-mobiles of the next century. They are
the fastest yet, the sleekest yet and the safest yet.
The safety of course is for the driver and his passengers. Pedest-
rians and worse drivers of out-dated chariots, had better not delude
themselves that the designers were worried about their welfare.
'Some of the new powerhouses even have safety belts to keep the
occupants from being battered to death against the shatter-proof wind-
shield when the new stop-on-a-dime power-brakes are applied at 120
m.p.h. (cruising speed of the auto).
But can you see any rubber foam cushioning, electronic obstacle-
clearers, or automatic hands to reach out with super-automobile speed
and whisk the pedestrian from the path of the plumetting comet?
What you can see, (if the car doesn't happen to be breaking the
light barrier at the moment) is a pair of streamlined, functional-de-
signed horns shielding the headlights and projecting aggressively be
yond the front of the radiator.
Talk about safety! If these things hit you they won't break an arm
or a leg but slice you in half or mince you up into streamlined, small-
SBut, of course, this doesn't affect the validity of the safety claims
of the new autos. In this day and age, we should all be wise enough
to see the qualities of the 1956 models, and then we should all be
safe and speedy within their sleek, NEW hulls.
That is the way the designers must have reasoned. And it's a sure
thing nobody is going to risk taking to the road in a bogota or ,a
pied, when they are around. So, sales are sure to rise. Another ex-
ample of American go-ahead sales methods. You gotta have drive
