,PETARD, MENACE MUST BE STAMPED OUT
This is the time of year when fire -crackers are every- D
where- sigrfaling their re-appearance with ear-shattering ex- c
plosions, acrid powder fumes, sleep-defying volleys after dark,
and. of course, the usual harvest of minor and major injuries.
,Already. with two weeks left before Christmas, and nearly a
month before the fire-cracker season ends, the toll has start-
ed to mouit.
Most tragic of the accidents to date is the case of young
Degen. 15-year old son of the German First Scy. who lost an
eye last Saturday when a ((petard, exploded and sent a scrap
of metal into his face.
Other accidents, some very serious, have occurred to add
to the ever increasing total of children pitifully maimed by
these lethal toys... So strangely associated with Christmas
when everyone should enjoy good health, and forget tragedy
lor awhile.
YET the grim series of accidents has done little to dis-
courage 'the children fascinated by the thought of walking I
the razor's edge of personal danger. And even many adults
show an amazingly immature attraction for the little red-coat- D
ed tubes of gun-powder.
Attempts to stamp out the curse of the cpetard* would be to
not merely futile but totally ridiculous. The temptation to t
set off fireworks during times of festivity is too great for w
childish minds to resist. As long as ry pharmacy, prominently and temptingly displayed, people d
will continue to buy them.
And the bigger and more powerful they are, the more cus- c
tomers these firecrackers'will attract, c
It is not unusual to hear two %bons copains* discussing in
awed voices the relative merits of different brands of local s
and imported firecrackers and the more destruction these I
explosive toys catise, the more awe-inspired are the tones in
which they are discussed. s
Fascination is directly proportional to the risk. t
Of course, each ,p6tard detonator feels that he will be I
lucky -or quick enough- to escape injury. It may happen e
to somebody else, but it couldn't happen to him. The number
of accidents indicate that many of these optimisticsensation d
seekers were wrong It did happen to them.
The number of accidents have increased now to the stage
-where something must be done to limit the sale and use of
fire crackers in Haiti. Banning the dangerous and disturbing
toys would arouse a certain moment of unreasoning resent-
ment in people who felt that there private lives were being
tampered with by State action, and the pharmacists who make
a tidy profit from the sale of fireworks would also be opposed
to such a measure.
That, perhaps, is the reason that no law has ever been ins-
tituted controlling firecracker sales. Harassed police have is-
sued a decree forbidding the use of these explosives on the
public streets, and in the'Presidential Decree on Traffic, pro-
vision has been made to prevent anything being dropped of
placed on the street which may cause accidents to pedestrians
or motorists a classification which certainly includes xpe-
tards. But pharmacists are allowed to sell them at will.
THE PHARMACISTS also sell the cmedicaments, to treat
the minor injuries received from their line of explosives. But
that is not enough. An old adage states: can ounce of prevent-
ion is worth a pound of cure (iSi'm te conning toujou der-
rio), and a definite measure is needed to limit the size and
lethal capacity of fireworks" sold in this republic.
Safety regulations should be imposed and insisted on in, the
manufacture of the * powder and length of fuse should be specified. The big, red
,bombs* should be strictly prohibited.
Then children and noise-loving adults could still satisfy
their craving for explosives, set off volleys like a Saturday
evening movie at Paramounth, and, scare other people with
psychologically placed firecrackers.
But their fascination for danger would go unsatisfied. And
their eyes and limbs would remain intact.
463 YEARS AGO
Just 463 years ago Tuesday, Christopher Columbus stood
on the deck of the Santa Maria and saw Mole St. Nicolas em-
erge through the telescope.
The great Discoverer and his hardy band of mariners dis-
embarked on Haiti's North Shore to rest and restock- the
ship's provisions. The Santa Maria was wrecked and Christo-
pher Columbus and his men packed into the two smaller
boats, the Nina and the Pinta. It was in Haiti that they
celebrated the first Christmas in the New World after build-
ing the Fort of the Nativity near Cap Haitien.
During the past four and a half centuries, Haiti has known
good times and bad, lean times and prosperous. But at no
lime has the light of Liberty been dimmed in the tiny half-
island on which no invaders have been able to remain. Span-
ish, French, British and other foreign nations have tried to
subdue this mountainous, turbulent land. They have appear-
ed to succeed for a while: but the unremitting opposition and
unbreakable spirit of the country proved strongest in the end.
The date -December 6- consacrated by our Constitution
as a National Holiday should be dear to the hearts of all
Haitians and all the people of the New World to. whom the
spirit of man, through its perseverance has opened new ho-
riznns:. ,:Le Nouvelliste declared in its editorial on the event

FOYER DES ART


PROVIDES CROS
A full turn-out was registered
last week by the Foyer des Arts
Plastiques when the tempera-
mental, and for the most part, ta-
lented artists got together to
give a full-scale exhibition.
Philippe Sterlin writing in
qrReflets d'Ilaiti comments *It
can never be forgotten that the
Foyer was born of dissensionM.
The Foyr des 'Arts Plastiques
was founded in 1950 when a
group of Haitian modern paint-
crs decideJ to branch out on
their own and establish what
they described as *a truly cha-
racteristic National Arth
Since then the Foyer's history
has been stormy, and difficulties
were experienced in meeting
rent bills. Critics in turn praised
and censored their work, and
their twelve exhibitions to date
have been only moderately suc-
cessful.

E'ut there can be no doubt that
talent and even, perhaps, genius
exists in the small band of young
crusaders united under Dieudon-
n6 Cador.
cIt is superfluous to speak here
of the numerous murals achieved


miic objects-lamp stands, vases
and other house-hold articles.
If your taste runs more to
wrought iron or metal work, Wid-
maier's still has just the type of
gift you arc looking for. Even if
you don't buy anything, it's
enough fun for a whole after-


noon juit browsing a-round
among the completely ne- v iines
ihey have introduced.
You will probably decide Jin the
end to give yourself a few last-
ing chuckles or equally lasting
'art objects and keep the cgifts
you buy for your own home!

by tLe artists of this important
group. The decorations of Villa

in his article praising the Foyer

A PROSPECTIVrE BUYER is shown absorbed in the completely new
shopping lines imported by Widmaier She is finding it a tough job
to choose. Coles supermarket also boasIs a Widmaier exhibition.


WILLY WIDMAIER is proudest of his wrought iron furniture, and a
glance at the above picture will show why. Besides the delicately work-
ed chairs and table shown here pre many smalldier items which add to
the beauty and originality of a home. Ceramics, folding door"i'andf
other modern items arc also included on his list.


AS THE WORLD tends and more towards moderni:?ing hou,;..ho!d ap:Jiances, Haitian housewives are
becoming ra-:idly more inclined towards doing their own cooking... Husbands of s-uch progressive-minded
'mbres de faminle- would be well advfsed to give them a hanly, ea;y-to-use fire extinguisher for a Xmas
present.WThe most attractive and effective buys in this line are among the many articles stocked by
Widmaier's.


ANOTHER SET of intricately wrTought metal furniture. The ?articles
are on display at the Compagnie Lithographique d'Haiti where a gift
shopper can spend hours delightedly exploring the extensive and va-
ried line of novelties, house-hold furnishings, vases, toilet articles -

WE MUST NOT DISAPPOINT

THE CHILDREN WHO NEED US
By Jacqueline Turian. Cordozo


Ladies and gentlemen:
The members of the Haitian
Association for Handicapped'
children %%ish to thank Dr.. Bell
-Greve, Dr. Herman Flax and all
the other delegates from Unit-
ed States who were kind enough
to put aside their various occu-
pations to come to us in Haiti
and help us face our Rehabili-.
tation Problems.
This group of friends has
brought to us not only the good
results of their experience, but
also their valuable advice as
well as their faith and enthu-
siasm. We all here hope whole-
heartedly that the Haitian com-
munity will benefit greatly
from their beautiful example of
self sacrifice and devotion.
Since it is a fact that others
are helping us, why should we
not consider it our duty to help
ourselves ? This is why, tonight,
I call upon all those who have a
heart to love one another to

And in keeping with its
French tradition the accent is
on good food in a romantic aP,'

world can offer a more.enticing-
blend of these two elements
than Le Perchoir, Haiti's smart-

Whether it's a thidk state-

NIf you really
want to bee

I ted with Hqi-
/ .^ d there are
i many intere-
[ Sting trips
jTJ, which afford
a close-up of
.h Haitian life
which you cannot gain if you
confine your sight-seeing to the
city. ,
Most of these trips can be
made in conventional automo-
biles, others require the more
versatile jeep to navigate the
'rough spots and river crossings.
All of them can be made in sa-
fety.


There is a Hertz-Drive-it
-Yourself Agency in town where
you can rent a car or a jeep at
reasonable rate; or you can
rent ears, with or' without
chauffers, elsewhere. The Hai-
tian Air Force provides safe
and efficient air transport to
most important points in Haiti
at very reasonable rates. Ask
your hotel manager or your
travel agent for details.
Each of these trips has its
special #Araction. From the
longer trip you will return

for which you will have a new
aspect). You will have a new
est for the attractions of the
ity. You will fell a great pity
Dr the jaded characters who
ave not strayed from the bar


since you left... And, of course,
you will have a good reserve of
conversational ammunition to
last you for many months.
So, starting with the shortest
.j'ips first, here are a few boiled
Jown suggestions for travel in
Haiti:

BOUTILLIERS MOUNTAIN
AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pershawh) The Perch)
The most spectacular view in
Haiti: 2,000 square miles of
Haiti spread out before you -
a miracle of color, form, sun.-
light and shadow! Port-au-Prin-
ce lies at your feet (3.000 feet
below) like a giant map. To get
to this breath-taking, unbelie-
eable and unforgettable view
3 u ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through the pretty little


town of,.Petionville, then up a
winding mountain road, borde-
red by flaming giant pointsetta
plants. You pass the tratched


roof habitations of peasants and
arrive in rural Haiti, where life
goes on as it has for centuries
as if the city below did not
exist. LE PERCHOIR, modern
oasis on the mountain, offers
the facilities of its restaurant
and night club, its Terrace Bar,
and its branch of La Belle Cre-
ole Gift Shop to make the trip
even -more enjoyable and profi-
table. After sundown light
wraps advisable, arid gentlemen
are asked to wear coats in the
restaurant after 7 p. m. Allow
two hours for this trip :- plus
time to eat.

CAP-HAITIEN
AND LA CITADELLE
This trip-is an experience in.
history and geography. It is an
adventure and a pilgrimage
which you must not miss.








If you have the time, we re-
commend. that you take three
days and go to Cap-Haitien by
car. Its about 170 miles and a
minimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours.
tp enjoy it most. So to one of
Cap Haitien's comfortable ho-
tels. For the night, go to the
Citadelle the next day, retur-_
ning to Port-au-Prince the third
day. Eevry mile and every


hour of this trip will be full of
unforgettable impressions.
If you are pressed for time,
you can fly to the Cape in 45
minutes, and can make the en-
tire pilgrimage in a single day.


JACMEL.--I
If you want another trip off
Sthe-beaten track go to Jacmel,
on Haiti's south coast. -Jacmel,
once a flourishing town, still
has a considerable export bu-
siness, but is typical of many


g..@ .
Haitian provincial sea-coast
towns waiting for better days
to come. Jacme!dl has a flavor
of its own. To get there you
can take the easy way by air,
or the adventurous way by
road, about 60 miles, practical-
ly every mile of which' has a.
river crossing. Near Jacmel is


one of Haiti's most beautiful.

Haitian Handicraft, Flowers
Win Praise At Cleveland ((F6te)


Haitian handicraft and flowers
were highly praised and admired
at the ,.Caribbean EveningD dinn-
er and dancing party held by the
Cleveland Athletic Club, Clevel-
and Ohio. last November 26.
The Haiti-produced articles
included 50 hand-painted straw
hats, from Carlos, 150 <,monkey)
hat-pins, 24 mahogany nut-crack-
ers, 12 assorted mahogany trays
iall from Souvenir Shop), 300
monkey hab-pins from Fisher's
Art & Curio Shop, a mahogany
head from E'ouad A Moarra,, a
set of mahogany bowls from
Kenol Bros. a m a h o g a-
ny statuette (a drummer)
from Canape Vert and a hand
carved liquor set (from Louis
TouLaint) which was so outstand
ing that Leo Doyle President of
the Cleveland Athletic Club sent
a special request for an identical
set for his personal use.
Pan American World Airways,
through local District Sales Ma-
nager Dave Gossett, rushed the
order through at Atelier St Jo-
seph and flew the liquor set out
to Mr. Doyle without delay.
It was Pan American, too,
which sponsored the idea of send-
ing Haitian exhibits to the Carib-
bean evening..Jack Reid, District
Sales Manager for the airline in
Cleveland wrote Mr. Gossett in
September notifying him of the
decision of the Athletic Club
(the foremost Cleveland men's


club to hold a Caribbean even-
ing.
4 We believe this will be the
biggest event of the season in
Cleveland,, Mr. Reid declared.
He asked the local office to
secure ,a good assortment of
first quality mahogany products
for use as door prizes, posters,
stable favoi ",) for the 600 gL.ests,
and flowers.
-.I und2''smand you have on, of
the world's foremost carnation

Tourism Director Pierre Chau-
vet readily co-operated' with Mr.
Gossett on the project, and Mr.
Atherton Lee. the carnation grow

The entire club was decorated
throughout in a Caribbean.motf
and special entertainers and mu-
sicians were gagedd -to set the
scene in the Aptilles. .
Prizes donated by Haiti aqd

put on open display in thie grad

previous to the event, surrou. d-

trucks which seem to occupy all
the street, the taxi which he
thinks is coming straight upon
him, and finally this cursed pe-
destrian who is tranquilly danc-
ing a afandaangot in front of his
car.

DEVORE
Let us now pass on to the cd6-
vord (the wnster), this chauffeur
who does not constitute a threat
to the circulation, but who is
without pity for the body of his
vehicle, or yours, or of the walls
and posts in general. You will
know him by the dents, the
hollow places and other exterior
signs which his car exhibits. And
if by misfortune you become his
parking neighbor, he will inevi-
tably leave his prints on your
ebagnoler. His home also shows
the traces of his marking perso-
nality. The pillars of his garage
visibly carry scratches which pro-
claim his passage. Often he
thinks he is avoiding a scratch,
or a knock by making an infer-
nal noise with his cklaxon
(horn), brutalizing those who
happen to be in his neighbor-
hood. Nothing troubles Wdevord.s
and he is surprised that you
should be angry because he has
kindly caressed the mudguard of
your machine, or still again that
he has given the *Accoladez to
your bumper. For him these
small damages are of no impor-
tance, you must not bother about
them: they in no way prevent
your machine from functioning.
And, in order to prove it, he nev-
er repairs the body of his'own
car; what's the use, he would
have to recommence every day.


BANDA
Look at the worthy fellow who
at the wheel of his automobile
chats constantly; this is the
chauffeur whom we call banda',
(gay blade). He could not drive
a car if he lost his speech. In
fact, he talks even when he is
alone. It is while driving that
bandat memberses his nume-
rous adventures. He tells his pas-
sengers, in a loud voice, about
his touching experiences while
roaming about' in charming com-
pany on impossible roads. Unima-
ginable break-downs which he
had to repair, frightful accidents
from which he mysteriously es-
caped without a scratch. He con-
verses with animation, and turns
his head in lI! directions to greet
each person he passes. eBandav is
also a poser. He would like to be
sure that he is admired when he
sure that he is admired
when he pa3se- at the
wheel of his luxu.-ious automobi-
le. It is for this reason that he
deems it necessa-'y to rectify the
position of his body, unceasingly,
and to drive with one hand while
the other lies with affectation on
the window of the car. It is when
he is accompanied by a beauti-
ful woman that cBandab attains
the zenith of exuberancy.
For automobile salesmen, Ban
daD is an extremely interesting
customer, for he always wants to
have the latest and best equipped
models. He buys everything in
the line of the latest accessories.
The mechanical particularites of
a model does not interest him; in
fact he doesn't know anything
about it. What is important for
him is to have a flashy automo-
bile which cannot pass unnoticed.
However, it is not always the

THE RARE ONES

Now that we have' examined

whom we can qualify as cbonsa
(good ones). Evidently they are
more rare. The conditions under
which people in Haiti learn to
drive are the cause. All those
who have received driving les-
sons for ?bout ten hours call
themselves chauiiffeurs. More of-
