HAITIAN PALMS -DON'T BEAR OLIVES-
-BUT NOW THEY ARE SPROUTING SOAP-
There used to be a time when tourists knew where they were
with their tropical vegetation. After all, they still have a faint
fdea of Stamp's heads by eighth grade schoolteachers.
But since the advent of posters in Haiti, our American visit-
ors are understandably baffled.
There, along the Bizoton road, stands a noble column of
stately Royal Palms. From the sea, a gentle zephyr stirs the
metallic leaves, shattering the light-rays in prismatic constel-
lations. Bunches of palm seeds burst forth like fountain spray Sodpabearing palm-trees
and hang in frozen cascades beneath the green arch of tfhe
leave's... Just as the poster in Thomas Cook promised. s
And half-way down the trunk of each tree is a big cake of
soap. From the reverse side there glows a magnificent, scarlet
hued tube of toothpaste.
This is no wonderful development of our exotic plants, fost-
ered by the pulsing tropic climate, though a Babbit or two may

FROM THE BEAUTY OF THE COUNTRY*.
A fine of 200 gourdes is imposed on anyone who, in defiance
of the law, places signs or posters along vthe principal roads
leaving the capital, especially that to Furcy passing through
P6ionville and Laboule, that of Port au Prince to Montrouis
and FROM PORT AU PRINCE TO MARIANI, under the de-
cree published by Mr. Georges Eugene Roy, director of the
Tax Office, August 10, 1954.
LOOK OUT FOR RELIGIOUS JUNK
There is a man named Max Kram whom our postal author-
ities should get to know. He may try to pull a fast mail-order
trick on unsuspecting Haitian Catholics.
Max is a religious racketeer who planned to ship some 200,
000 religious trinkets into Cuba and Puerto Rico at a dollar
a piece. The cheap trinkets were not ordered, but the roly-
poly racketeer hoped to collect by trading on the religious
beliefs of the predominantly Catholic countries.
The Cuban post office dumped the stuff back into the
States, so Max has a lot of religious trinkets for which he has
no outlet, and which have cost him a tidy sum.
Haiti is also a Catholic country, and.Max may try to pass
the buck this end. If he does, our post office should be pre- -
pared to slap an (unacceptable) stamp on the envelopes, just
as the Cubans did.
NATIONAL ANTHEM OUT OF STOCK
Major General Reuben C. Hood who spent three days here
earlier this month inspecting the U.S. Air Mission didn't have
time to complete his record shopping, so he commissioned
Major John M. Crowley to buy a copy of cl'Hymne Nationals.
Major Crowley's apparently easy task developed some tough
angles, when one record shop after another confessed that,
although they had all the latest cha-cha-chas, mambos and me-
ringues, they were fresh out of national anthems.
Only Paul Anson, on Grand'Rue. was able to produce a re-
cording of the fine old tune.
As the Major commented, that's the one record all music
shops should be sure to have.

S nine-pound brain is teeming with
schemes of overcoming nature, the
universe, the moon, and everything
else in sight (occasionally even the
S shapely I.b. 'technician with eyes

i These men have conceived on a

Ste all the massive stones found at the bottom of Lake Titicaca in the
mountains of -E-uador How did the men of those primitive times
perform feats which our highly progressive engineers would find all
but impossible?

Stones of 22,000 tons were quarried- by the lost tribes of the Incas,
they were borne from one place to another, over mountains, cross
l-:-kes, huge pillars were carved from solid rock and set upright. Yet
no trace'can be found of the machines used to do these things.
Scientists have come to the conclusion that these ancient builders
accidentally (of course) discovered a yvay of conquering gravity. What
they could do accidentally, we can do by cold-blooded, scientific, mo-
dernistic. progressive, c nalytical, multi-million.-ollar research. So a..
group of scientists have set to work on it.

To the comrmen layman. this means success. We have confidence in
our domed scientists, L e know that when they decide to do anything,
they will do it, if it costs. tax-payers (like us laymen) a fortune.
So we can prepare for the coming of the Gravity-less Age.
Then the Taurist Office can lo.at the Citadel over to Port au Prince
or New York for special exhibitions, and airlines will cease because
they are few; then the iivocado gatherers will no longer find fruit on
the ground, but will have to chase them through the air-currents for
eternity.

Ever since the apple buitped off the dome of Sir Isaac Newton,
scientists (have come to the erudite conclusion that objects fall down
and not up. also that this is due to a force, gravity, exerted by objects
of large mass on objects of lesser mass.
/
Ergo, the world being the largest mass in the world exerts a
pull on all objects within its gravitational field (like the apple) and
irreluctably impels errant objects, that try to spring, fly or leap out
into space, back to its breast causing such things as bumps on New-
ton's head, plane-crashes, falling autumn leaves and so on).

This discovery was followed by much writing of equations to the
effect that pi r' squared plus the cube of theta equals etc. But scien-
tists were content merely to figure out- whiy their's was not to do
or die.

By Mary Johnson


Gaiety is keynote of night
life in Port-au-Prince the
gay sophistication of a New
World Paris underlined by the
hypnotic beat of African tam-
bours.

And in keeping with its
French tradition the accent is
on good food in a romantic at-
mosphere. Few places in the
world can offer a more enticing
blend of these two elements
than Le Perchoir1 Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000
1


feet above Port-au-Prince and
,s emerald bay. Guests during
aa and cocktail hour have a
frontt row seat at one of the most
bewitching settings ever pro-
vided for a tropical sunset.
.hen the lights go on and the
,-urving bayshore is outlined in
a necklace of shimmering
pearls. On the breezeswept
terrace, guests can watch cars
stop at the Dominican border
20 miles away.
Whether it's a thick state-
side steak or an ethereal Rum
3ouffl-6, Le Perchoir food is
superbly prepared and elegant-
ly served. F6lix Gulgnard and
irs orchestra provides music for
dancing.

The International Casino, a
swank establishment run by a
staff imported from Monte-
Carlo, is one of the major
points of interest during the
summer and winter tourist sea
sons. There one can dine on
excellent Italian food and later
visit the gaming tables which
are meticulously run under the
supervision of the Haitian Go-
vernment. On the bay side,
an orchestra beats out rhum-
bas, mambos and romantic Hai-
tian meringues for deincing un-
der the twinkling stars.

Near the, Casino in the bree-
zeswept Exposition Grounds
is the Open Air Theatre de
Verdure where visitors can
attend the bi-weekly shows put
on by the talented National
Folklore Troupe.

Around the curve of the bay
is the newly remodeled Hotel
Riviera with its huge air-con
ditioned Bamboche Room and
circular bar. The bar's revolt
ving center serves as the stage
for Michel Desgrottes tri-lin-
gual crooning and a nightly
floo show The white-faced Ban-
da dancer is Minsky's in rever.
se, a comedian par excellence.


Other leading hotels have
special dinner dansants once or
twice a weekly. Visitors should
not miss an opportunity to hear
Haiti's internationally known
male Dejean Choir which per-
forms at Hotel Ibo Lele on Fri-
day evenings during the Sea-
son. The El Rancho features Ti
Ro Ro, Haiti's number one dru-
mmer, and members of the Na-
tional Folklore Troupe on
Friday evening and other spe-
cial dance nights which vary
according to the season. Hotel
Dambala has a Saturday night
chicken barbeque beside its illu-
minated pool, with and orches-
tra providing music for outdoor
dancing on its marble patio. The
Villa Creole's Big Night is
Thursday evening with a Hai-
tian Buffet served beside its
pool in a gala tropical garden
decor and, of course, dancing.
The roof garden at Hotel Chou-
coune is open for dinner dan-
cing Monday and Wednesday
nights during the season.
On Saturday evening Petion-
ville's thatched-roofed night
club, Cabane Choucoune, is the
mecca of the Capital Elite and
visitors. Alternating orchestras
throb with the rhythm of the
Haitian Meringue, a dance so
simple that visitors need spend
no time on the side 'lines just
looking on. Though this has
long been the society gathering
spot of the Haitian Capital,
rum and sodas are still served
for .20 a dlass. There is an en-
trance fee which varies depen-
ding upon the entertainment'
-for the evening. The Cabane
Choucoune often features lea-
ding foreign entertainers.
Saturday night is also the
night for taking trips into the
nearby hills to attend the pea-
sant cbambochesu or non-reli-
gious dances held in open cton-
nelles to the pulsing beat of
the voodoo drums. It's an UN-
FORGETTABLE ecpr. ience.
For late Stayer uppers any


night of the week, Dan APen's
Rendez-vous across form the
Inte-rnational Casino goes .trong
until all hours. And along
about 1 a. m., the joint is usual-
ly hopping with oldtime Ame-




















rican favorites, such as Alexan-
der's Ragtime Band.
For seafood and such spe-
cialties as' Fried Frogs Legs,
there is the bayshore restau-
rant known as Fishbowl. The
food is excellent, the view inte-
resting. Another nore luxu-
rious Sea-food restaurant dan-
sant is planned for The Sete
of Ki Pi not for from the Fish-
-bowL
For dinner minus dancing,
there is Petionville's Le Picar-
di a French-run Pension fea-
turing Esoargot, pepper steak
and the sort of food rarely seen
or tasted off the Midi. In Port-
au.Prince, Aux Cosaques is
!mown for its tasty flaming
lobster and other typically Hai-
tian dishes. The Savoy, just
off the Champs de Mars, offers
either Haitian or American
foods and if you are really ho-
mesick for southern fried chic-
ken that is just where you'll
find it a block from the Na-
tional Palace tucked away in Bois'Verna, is
the latest addition to the'swart
eating houses in Port-au-Prince
Open all night.

SIf you really
f9want to bee.
N s ome acquain-
S ied with Hai-
f i there are
many intere-
n-"sting trips
u J which afford
---a close-up of
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 spo's and river crossings.
All of them can be made in sa-
fety. .


There is a Hertz-Drive-it
Yourself Agency in townm 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 attraction. From the
longer trips you will return
with a grand thirst, a hearty
appetite, !a delicious fatigue,
quickly banished by a hot bath


TRAVEL SUESTnON$t I


(for which you will have a nevy
respect).' You will have a new
test for the attractions of the
city. You will fell a great pity
for the jaded characters who
have not strayed horn 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
tu'ips first, here are a few boiled
dliwn 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
Ha:ti spread out before you -
a miracle of co'or, 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
S)u ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through the pretty little










town of Petionville, then up a
wvindiiig 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, modem
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, and 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 Cep-Haitien by
caT.' Its about 170 miles and a
minimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours
to enjoy it 'post. So to one of
Cap Haitien's corortable 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.-
If you want another trip off-
thd-beaten track go to Jacmel,
on Haiti's south coast. Jacme],
once a flourishing townm, still
has a considerable export bu
siness, but is typical of man3
i ,W6


\
Haitian provincial sea-coast
towns Waiting for better days
to come. Jacmell has a flavor
of its own. t 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 '
beaches, Raymond les Bains.
Two hotels there, clean end

night at least.
FORET DES PINS
S(Pine Forest)
In south-east Haiti, a drive of
some 60 miles from Prt-au-
Prince is a beautiful pine forest
at an elevation of about 7,000
'eet. To arrive at this 150,000 .
wcre forest, one drives through
the rich sugar cane lands of '.
-he Cul de Sac plain, then
through arid arid region of oac- ;
tus to the edge of Lake Etang..."
Sumatre, famous salt.-lake, I.-.,,
.ested with crocodiles, lying on
the frontier of the Dominican'-
Republic. There the climb corn- '
mences to the cool Pine Forest..
This trip will take all day,.
returning to your hotel for
cocktails and dinner. Passing .
through a number of small Hai-''.
tian towns and villages, it af-"
fords a variety' of impressions,' ;
of Haitian life and geography.
Take a wrap for your visit-
its cool up there. '

FOLKLORE DANCES HEAD. HAITI'S NIGHTLIFE FARE rc
re
PORT AU PRINCE-Here, in this believe-it-or-not land of Haiti, G
nightclub audiences roar with laughter at a dance'of death.
Outstanding among the Haitian folklore dances staged during the Q
winter in this city, the d-nce of Banda often shocks'but invariably n
produces guffaws. H
Decked out in a top hat and full dress white silk suit minus tie, shirt bi
and shoe. Banda looks more like a clown than one of the spirits of th-
death. He is, in fact, the clowning agent of Baron Samedi, boss of the -
cemeteries, or Father Death himself.
But Banda is a frivolous fellow and his dance mocks everyone. -
just as death does. He pokes fun at life and .at sex with movements
that leave little to the imagination. But somehow Banda always manages
to be impudent rather than improper.
One ol the most exciting facets of the cultural upsurge in Haiti, the
folklore dances of this Caribbean country have become so much in
demand by U.S. tourists that this winter top hotels as well as Port
an Prince's leading nightclub will stage shows.
Although Haitian peasants had always danced at voodoo cere-
monies, social get-togethers and during carnival no sustained at-
temps to organize and stage their dances was made until Haiti launch-
ed its Bicentennial Exposition in 1949.
The exposition proved an eye-opener to American -tourists. They
discovered that Haiti is easily the most exotic of all Caribbean coun-
tries and that it is quick to reach three hours from Miami by Pan
American World Airways. As a result, visitors swelled from 7,810 in
1949 to 55.000 in 1955, and air service was increased by PAA's new :
seven-and-a-half hour direct flights between Ne\v York and Port au |
Prince.
At first folklore shows were limited to the national troupe which
performed three times a week in winter under the direction of Lavinia
Williams, an American Negro dancer with such Broadway hits as -
Show Boat', -Cabin in the Sky,, and' 'Finian's Rainbow,, to her
credit. But the demand for this entertainment grew to such an extent -
Miss Williams formed her own troupes to fill engagements at top
hotels. Now, every hotel of note in the Haitian capital is announcing
folklore shows as part of its entertainment program. In addition, the
National Folkloric Troupe will appear three times a week at Port au
Prince's leading nightclub, the Caybane Choucoune, until renovations
on the Theatre de Verdure are completed.
Voodoo ceremonial 'dances, carnival capers and the Haitian habit
of mixing toil with frivolty are all portrayed in the folklore dances.
The Yanvalu dance, one of several that marks .the Oanzo Ceremony
a rite that qualifies voodoo adherents to become priests and priest-
esses requires total undulation of the body%, from knees to head.
Depicted' are the ceremony's purification by fire, symbolizing mastery
over nature's elements, and the conferring of sacred beads to protect
the wearers from all harm.
The Coumbite vividly pictures the.Haitian Aeasant's custom of re-
cruiting his neighbors for harvesting his crop, building his hut or for
any other' project that calls for *many hands. After the job is done,
feasting and dancing follows.
The dance begins with a peasant calling his neighbors by bloweingI
on a conch shell.
Men and women with baskets and tools appear and the work is
danced in pantomime.
From a pleasing 'spectacle the Coumbite becomes a rousing one as
the purely social aspect of this custom takes over.
The Congo, -a joyous dance symbolizing youth and love, dates back
to the 18th Century when the first African slaves set foot in Haiti
.during French colonial rule. Under French influence, the primitive
exuberance of the Congo *as still seen in Cuba's version, the conga,
softened in Haiti into a charming, coquettish, and graceful dance.
Rounding out the repertoire of most shows are carnival dances. Most
popular is the Mazoune, a group dance with a king performing solo
as :a climax. The Mazoune blends the difficult combination of ballet
footwork with bent knees, stiff shoulders and statue-still head although,
in the case of the king, a *ten pound headress is worn. So difficult is
this'dance that usually it is performed only by. men.
No show is complete without an exhibition of the virtuosity of
Haitian drummers' Conversation, of the Drums', a pulse-racing duet.
spotlights the fact that since the diverse African slaves in Haiti spoke
different languages, they communicated with each other through
drums.
As pure entertainment, Haiti's folklore dances are in a class by
themselves. At the same time, they impart the unique and turbulent
history of a sl-ve land that won freedom from Napoleonic France to
I emerge 'as the only Negro republic in the Western Hemisphere.
