BY ENCOURAGEMENT OF FISHING
Fishing may be the answer to odur off-season tourist Oac-
cuum, as well as proving a source of healthy exercise and en-
tertainrrent for Winter-season tourists.
Though locally regarded with a listless eye, th* sport is a
top-ranker in popularity in the United Sta*s and may prove
to be an inexhausitble means of increasing our already climb-
ing tourist figures.
Off the island of La Gonave, the U.S. Air Mission boat re-'
cently battled a sail-fish out of the harbour, while Anton
Kneer, local version of Heningway's Old Man Of the Sea,
also added a magnificent sail-fish to his recent record.
Drifting as far away as Miami, Bert Shrewsbury, Operat-
ions Superintendant of the Electric Light Company, pulled in
two seven-foot sailfish in two years, and as' he pointed out to
Your Reporter it's not every day you hook a game, war-mind-'
ed sail-fish weighing 147 lb.
Some people spend their lives trying to land a sailfish -
This proves that local talent is at a high level and it
hasn't been tapped yet!
Everything seems to indicate the next step in boosting
our touristic appeal is the organization of a few fishing tourn-
aments, maybe even a fishing club, and the establishment of
Facilities for visiting fishermen.

No. 10 Scraper provides dependable, high
speed hauling. These matched units have
an available top speed of 24.5 MPH.

The DW10 is powered by a 115 HP
Caterpillar Diesel Engine. This engine
lowers operating costs by using low cost,
non-premium fuels, without fouling. The
brakes on the trailing uwit take hold an
instant before the brakes on the tractor,
thereby preventing jackknifing and assur-
ing safe operation. Mechanical steering is
aided by an, hydraulic mechanism, giving
the driver complete control and a "feel

The headquarters of the 0-
DECA (Organization of Central

installed in San Salvador with
Guillermo Trabanino, San Sal-

reign Relations at its head. Mr.
Trabanino was elected as Secre-
tanry General for a four year
term, and instead of a split up
of five bickering republics, Mr.
Trabanino hopes to translate
the dream of a Central Ameri-

Haiti is beyond doubt a country
that fascinates foreigners, parti-
cularly European and North A-
merican foreigners. The explana-
tions as to why this should be so
are perhaps obvious, but may be
worthwhile mentioning in brief.
In the first place, Haiti came
into being as an independent
state in the most dramatic and
impressive of circumstances. In-
deed. the period of 1791, when
the. slave-'-evolt took place, to
1804, when formal independence
was declared, is one of the most
Sspectacular zind astounding per-
iods in modern history.
The pe'-ird of independence
also threw ap a number of strik-
ing personaiities-Toussaint, Hen
ri Christophe. Dessalines who,

dence of Latin America,-Miran-

that the foreigner'is drawn by

Haiti is the territory of the
Caribbean which has preserved

African heritage, and whereas,
in varying degrees, traces of Afri-

of a large section of the popula-

is probably why, although he
gives fair sp-ce to such questions
as the economic development and

he comes down heavily precisely
