EXPOSITION SHOWING SIGNS OF NEGLECT


The Cite de l'Exposition is one of Port an Prince's greatest
assets as far as tourists are concerned.
The Exposition in 1949 marked the beginning of a touristic
rush to Haiti which has been doubled and tripled by the
propaganda and wise planning of the present administration.
In a city where the roads are notoriously difficult to ne-
gotiate, the wide sweeping boulevards, palm trees, surrealistic
monuments and green lawns form a sort of oasis which at-
tracts both local inhabitants and visitors.
But recently signs of neglect are beginning to show.
The arch in front of the Rond Point, the buildings housing
various oltices, the Casino all wear an air of deserted despair.
An'd the magnificent mural oil the wall of Avenue Marie
Jeanne between the Ouvroir National and Regie (du Tebac
is flaking and peeling. It will soon be completely ruined. The
work of Pierre Bourdelle, Antonio Josepnl. Andre Leveque,
Emmanuel Michel and Fernand Savain, mtne mural represents
the finest of Haitian art.
If time and weather are allowed to destroy it, Haiti will
lose a great work of art, and a valuable tourist asset.

A Suggestion For Improvement

Of Haitian Touristic Economy

E- -Fernand Alix Roy (From !ndependancez)


Here is an example of what
we could dlu if the gourde were
not tied to the dollar. The man
in charge of regulating our eco-
nomy summons into his office
the directors of the gasoline comn-
panies and tells them: cSirs, buy in your
country and -pay in dollars ma-
te;Mls and equipment (bull-doz-
ers, graders, cranes, trucks,
dmmp-trucks, levellers, stone-
breakers, sphalt etc ...) in a nut-
shell everything needed to equip,
On the most modern way, five
Valtian companies which will be
active throughout the Republic
in developing the road network
on a large scale. (Laying down
splendid automobile roads). And
the money which you spend in
dollarr (let's say 6.000.000 dollars)
will 'be repaid in gourdes which
yoq. will spend here to build, all
along these beautiful touristic
roads, s e r v i c e-st a tions-restau-
rants.
Explanation
I pause here to explain to the
reader that when the man in
charge of our economy pays the
directors in GOURDES he gives
them the money only in show,
but in fact, he is really giving
them LABOURM*Indeed, we have
manpower going to waste (what
a crime) so there is a, way of con-
verting it into money.
There is nothing in ths "oper-
ation to surprise .ry readers be-
cause they are awvare that money
is in reality nothing but a sym-
bol of MANPOWER. It was mere-
ly a precaution that I took in re-
minding then of this. This said...


U-W


let us continue our dissertation.
There is no doubt that the di-
rectors of these companies will,
as iutelligenit men, realize imm-
ediately what profit they will
gain by this arrangement (tre-
mendous increase in sales ot
their products). It.is almost a cer-
tainty that they will accept such
a proposition without a moment's
hesitation, with even, it is to be
feared, competition and rivalry
among themselves to obtain a
monopoly in furnishing materials
and equipment so as to 'have a
monopoly on the service stations.

And on our side, the bank of
the Haitians, the BANQUE DE
TRAVAIL will finance the cons-
truction of the road network, in
other words, the salaries of the
engineers, chauffeurs, labourers.

)ughout The U.S.

Post, the day after Haitian danc-
er Leon Destine and his troupe
opened the Hazel M. Oberfelder
cintime de luxe concert series
at the Phipps auditorium in Den- rs
ver. Colorado, November 16. any
Critical opinion is unanimous fat
in its unreserved praise of Des- 12a
tine's performances, wherever rou
he may appear in his tours I to
throughout the United States. abl
The Rev. Dorsey Callaghan, Con
Music critic of the Detroit Free be
Press, enthused: aDestin6 is an FOF
unusual combination of European & Exi
and Haitian native cultures. "
There is an elegance in much of
his dancing even when in the fu-
ry of jungle exaltation...
((His slave dancing is one of
the most striking works to emer-
ge from the basic historical back-
ground of his native land*.
This review was published aft-
er a Destine appearance at the
Scottish Rite Cathedral recently.
The Free Press critic was es-
pecdially impressed with the slave
dance.
&It reaches a -pitch of sheer
horror when the slave breaks
free from his' chains and grovels
loose-jointed before the sacred
drums the Rev Callaghan said.
(Destine has created a head mo-
vement thaat is unbelievable in.
its .gruesomeness. It is as though
the body broken-necked, were
in its last throes.*$
Jean Le6an Destine, Haitian
born choreographer and dancer,
has been living in the States for -
the past five years, and every-
where he has danced he has won
friends for his native Republic.
Not only is he a superb dancer, .
but his quiet charm and pleasant
mannerisms have excited conm- 50
ment in the Press across the '
Continent: and time after time
tourists visiting Haiti confess
that it was Destind's dancing that
first made them yearn to visit
his country CA-4L,

Tight in my Mountain

BY NOUCHE DEGENER

At night my mountain comes olive with silent movement as I settle
on the chaise-longue in a corner og the balcony.
... The swish-swish of-a calico dress the padding
of naked feet as they hurry to some secret and in.
.; visible rendez-vous...
The throbbing of distant drums the intermit-
tent barking of dogs.
The cries of children somewhere that die away
the shriek of a solitary bird the crowing of
cocks in the darknes6...
The life of the night, scented b\ trees and flow-
ers not asleep, 'but only just awakening.
Haiti's is a secret night...
Laughter is not laughing anymore. Everything has a different mean-
ing perhaps a druidism unknown...
The mountain is full of murmurs.., dancing lights which will fade
away as the dawn silhouettes the hills, and the sun will bring back
the familiar sounds of the day...
The call of the coal vendor...
The fapping of the boy again-t his shoe-shine kit...
The plaint of the girl with the grilled-coffee-and-brown-sugar...
The sing-song of the hot pastry peddler: -pate chaud! pat6
chaud!...
The loud and vehement sermons of the mad mountaineer
Thy articulate proclamation of the lottery numbers: ,dormi pauvre...
levez riche!...
The determined and persuasive nmarchandes offering chadeques,
citrons, oranges as they quote you two prices, then let you have the
.fruit cheaper when you bargain for the -thirds price...
So the usual sunny day springs forth closing out the strange sounds
of the night, and from mV balcony across from my mountain I watch
the new day wind its way towards evening!

The Author


MADAME NOUCHE DEGE-
NERi was born to a Bohemia*n
tradition-her father was a Pa-
ris artist originally from Bas-
que), her mother a professional
singer.
Blonde, faintly-lisping Nou-
the crossed the Atlantic to the
US. at the ag? of 17, soon af-
terwards plighted her troth to
Woman C. Barwese, socialite-
broker of Denver, Colorado.
But hers was hardly the tern-
perament to be compatible with
the broker-type personality and
divorce followed.
t second marriage was not
long in coming and again the
pretty Parisieine chose a finan-
cier George L. Degener of
40 Wall Street. The Degener
Mansion on Park Ave. was home
base for trips to Bahamas, Ber-
muda, Jau-aica, the Dalmatida,
the Azores and just about every-
where else. as Nouche's roving
imagination gets restless in the
Summer.
A Worl'id War II Red Cross
ambulan c driver, Mrs. Degener
has decorations and citations
trom New York, City, the Inter-
national Red Cross. She was
divorced by her husband in i
1945 because she refused to
give up her war service.
She even tried to get into
the French Foreign Legion but
was turned down because of "
her status of motherhood (her
son Michael now attends colle-
ge in Ma-'sachusetts.)
Working on a collection of
Mexican, Elentheran and Hai-
tian folk tales, Mrs. Degener is
also writing a scenario for a
Hollywood fOlm on this Repub-
lic and contributes stories to
U.S. magazines.

AUX COSAQUES

Haiti's famous ihomard flam-
me. has been enthusiastically
acclaimed by Yisiting epicures,

But foreigners aren't the only
connoisseurs of food. Haitians
know where the meat is done
ust right, where wines are of a
perfect vintage and flavour to
fellow their mood and form the
perfect foil for each delightful
course.

are observed at aAnx Cosaques.

Cassier Takes

Bellevue Trophy
f
Jean Claude Armand, tennis
campion of Port au Prince. failed
o hold his early lead over his Col-
ege frien- and guest Robert
'assler. and ended runner-up in
hie finals of the men's singles
championships at Bellevue last
saturday afternoon.
Cassler, tennis titlist of his
allege in the U.S.A., is on
Smonth-long vacation with Jean
Claude. He has shown superior
orm to his opponents throughout
he tournament, easily beating
evn redoubpables like Edouard
Baker, the tall, classical Men's
doubles champion of Haiti.
The final match at Bellevue
saw Armand playing in very good
form in the first two sets, with
his opponent committing a sur-
prising number of service errors.
Then after losing 4-6, 4-6 in the
first two, Cassler sharpened his
service to its highest pitch, shook
he rust out of his joints and mav
ed in to overwhelm his 'host 6-3
n the third set. The soft-spoken,
slightly-built American 91so took
th.lie next two sets: 6-3, 6-2 while
Armand struggled valliantly but
vainly to take control of the
game.

REPORTER'S LOT IS A HARD ONE

-Says (Miami Herald Columnist)'
ISydney J. Haris
Sydney .1. Harris


A READER in Richmond, Vir-
ginia, complains that the news-
papers have little respect for
personal character,s and that
newspaper reporters tend to
mock or reviled famous figures
in the news.
Based on some 20 years of news
paper experience, I should say
that exactly the opposite is the
case.
One reason for the alarming
rate of ulcers, hypertension and


general malaise among newspap-
ermen (who probably own more
thermometers per caipita than
any other segment of the popula-
tion), is their chronic frustration
in maintaining the objectivityp
that news stories call for.
In my interviewing days, I met
hundreds of characters (along of
course, with many virtuous folk)
who were greedy, stupid, ruth-
less, dishonest and c h e a p1 as a
dime-store brooch.


During political campaigns, i
particular, the reporter is forces
to quote muscular platitudes b3
the bushel, even when he know:
that the orator barely undersi
ands what he is saying, has no in
tention of fulfilling his glorious
promises, and indeed may no
have seen the script until he wa
nudged .in front of the micro
phone.
Yet, apart from the editoria
columns of the paper (in whici
the editor has a right and a duty
to put personalities on the skew
er), the bulk of news stories mus
be written dead-pan, in a flat, te
legraphic style, to avoid any im
putation of ,coloring.> or favorite
ism.

.AMMOPHOSiO,
S high analysis
ptlethd "hutilbenl
,,.. i,


A woman's magazine recently put it up to the lair sex that although
r.n auto is usually the most popular place for a proposal, it's also the
most dangerous place for a girl unless the driver passes an elaborate
test set forth therewith.
The test boils down to this: if you're a girl, and you have a date,
.OLI can tell what kind of a husband he is going to make or if he is
going to live long enough *to get around to being a husband it-all.
Thie aj-,ich., of cou.-sc, is for American girls. They are warned that
the drive;-r who spuitls ahead to pass on a blind hill is an 'unstable,
impntent individual, hlie who swerves in and out of traffic showing
off h.s reflexes will almost certainly be a bad bet as a husband as
he is certain to crash sometime and be a cripple for the-rest of his
life, and if lie floc'is thc car ahead with his liheadlights, by neglecting
to dip them, he is not a -solid sort of man..
Girls are warned that their dates are usually trying to impress them
with their courage and power, and a whole arsenal of retorts are
provided which may calm the guy's nerves and reduce the risk on his
date's life.
A recent survey by the 'Sun. along these lines, however, was aban-
doned when we failed to find even one isolated example of an ideal
husband in Port au Prince (judged by the' acid test of driving). The
survey nearly cost us our un-marriage-worthy lives, and succeeded in
,roving that Your Reporter himself was decidedly not eligible.
If girls in &is neck of the woods waited until an ideal driver came
a]ong, they would all die old-maids, our survey indicated.
So, it is probable ;hat they will iake a chance on the other alter-
tive (according to the Stateside magazine) of dying in action, seated
beside their, unsolid, imp-lient, crash-susceptible dates heedless of"
personal danger in their quest for their true mates.
(One of the comments recommended by the magazine to keep girls'
da;Q; from speeding is: -Next time I'll wear a crash helmet, ao I'll
feel safer". This was not very effective when used locally, our sur-
vey prorve'T-i.
