According to the woman, she
saw no sign of kicking, either

She lett the estaL-lishment and
entered her escort's car at about

to have replied. o, I never .had

car with men whom the woman
could not recognize picked them
up and took them to the General

unfamiliar to Ayala conveyed her
to the Police Station at 6:40 p.m

KEEP TRAGEDY OUT OF CHRISTMAS TOO MUCH TO PAY
VfI "D A DC PV fltQ'T


Christmas is the day of all days in the year when families
i.hould be most care-tree and mo5t aware of their good-fortune
in.living in a free world, released from the burden of paying
for their transgressions.
It is an occasion for rejoicing, mirth, good fellowship and
good fare. A season for gratitude to God and goodwill to-
wards our fellowmen.
Unfortunately, the festive aspect o6 the Christmas season
is often too strongly stressed, and the excitement or liquid
'tare of may lead to stark tragedy.
We should all try to make Christmas joyous for everybody
and especially for our families. Yet very often, a pall of
tragedy hangs over the heads of mothers.. fathers sisters,
brothers who have -lost someone they loved; and Christmas
revelry becomes a bitter mockery.
SSo this holiday season, remember: be careful.
When out on a ,bambochev, make sure that the most sober
member of thie party is the' one who drives. And, if you are
a driver, 'keep within the spee4 limit.
Pistol packing ci~izetls can shelve their fire-arms along
dth their hardboiled butlook over 'Christmas. It's the one
time of year when sentiment is not coTiadete'd unworthy of
a rugged he-man, so they dqn't, have to pIove their nViphood
by'toting baby cannons. ..
.Nor is it necessary t'o -lose our tempers and defend oqr hofi-
our jusque le fond de' la guerre* at some imagined insult.
It's Christmas, thliet ime to be.gentle, forgiving.
If you recall, the spirit of Christmas is: (Peace en earth,
Goodwill to'all men:.'
ENTERTAINMENT-UPGRADED FOR 56
More first-class restaurant,'new and .better entertainment,
movie hotels .itgke .theftburistic keynote for 1956.
On the Ep Stion, Buteau's, 'Madamae Dominique Marini's
and the Italiawi tstaurarit are taking shape as modern, stream-
lined eating-houses.-While old stagers like Nobbe & Bondel's
and La Tonnelle already haye instituted sweeping reforms in
appearance and service.
Coming into the Christmas home-stre.tch, last week, all of
the three major dinemas in Port au Prince produced excellent
films, while in the social world Cercle Port au Princien awoke
from its summer hibernation, and a club .Wapied Camaraderie
bid for greater sophistication with a complete and dazzling'
overhaul.

the gambling tables back ii'the old headquarters. Choucourie
has stepped up the tempo of is.uis4u]iy.1gay Saturday evenings
and also has brougtiih'a$eds f Wedrdlay evening candle-

Ibo Lele's beautiful new nightclub ,Shffng6k opened with
a bang Wednesday evening, while places like Riviera have im-
ported foreign dancers for the' first time in hbnritls.
.Most of the big hotels have added rpoms,, alnd the sky-
scraping Castelhaiti is sceq4uledj for a ..prpohaipev opening.
Chouchou Bay'is'slated for a resort early next year..
In addition to these improvements, the'Department of Com-
merce has taken the emphasis off Coffee and. placed it on
Tourism second ranking item in our national economy.
A recent bulletin from the Department shows that the Go-
vernment this year spent $60.000 compared to $15.000 in 1950
to attract American visitors to these shores.
The over-all picture of 1956 looks particularly bright and
certainly holds promise of prosperity.


ruj'n r THE EDITOR
Sir,
It's around this time of year
that people realize how high the
parcel post rates really are !
$16 stamps must go on every
10 kilos posted ind $1.50 is re-
quired 'to post each 500 grammes
with an extra charge of 40 cents
for every 250 gins. above this.
Certainly, it would me more
far-sighted if the postal rates
were lowered so that many more
people could send small Haitian
gifts to friends and realtives
abroad, winning invaluable pu-
blicity for the country's pro-
ducts.

THERE'S AN OLD SONG (well not' too old) which goes something
like this: -You better watch out, you'd better not shout, you's better

a sign with a big picture of Santa Claus on it, and as near as he could
figure it,i the store bearing the sign was claiming to be the headquart-
ers of the Big Man.
Exploding the olaim by attempting to obtain a free tricycle on the
strength'of his good behaviour all year, our little tot toddled off in
a gloom-cloud.
Hope came again when another store displayed its pretension to
being- the home base of Santa's sleighs inc. (we serve the world by

THE CALL OF Ti


HOUSEWIVES ME


'Among uior pea-ant folk, the
.yuletide season brings thoughts
of the traditional ceremony re-
quired of those who have the
,qloast or spirits to appease. De-
cember is the month when ac-
counts must be settled, and the
bourgeois families of the capital
and provincial towns may find
their domestic personnel sudden-
ly reduced to a minimum just
when they are planning their end
of-the-year c e e b rations An-
mi- P i ?c a :' exodus from the
cities takes place, with or with-
out the mist. ess' godspeed, for
certain of our yardboys, cooks
and butlers must keep a rendez-
,vous that they dare iot neglect.

The spirit? will not be depriv-
ed of their yearly ceremony which
we might call '.the big -feed.*
Should Lucia or Elcius fail to re-
turn to the seat of their birth to
keep faith with the -loa they
have inherited, they and theirs
are doomed to suffer the wrath
of the unappeased spirits. The
big ceremony is always schedul-
ed for the night of December
.24th,'and may lengthen out intb
a collective drinking and eating
orgy that takes them through
New Year's day. and often up to
January 6th, the xfete des rois.v
So bourgeois families must ine-
vitably bow to the call of the/
hills and the plains, and
mobilize their members into
a corps to hold the fort
the best they can, assuming
household chores and kitchen du-
ty instead of being able to relax'
'and enjoy comfort and service
from the (,siege' of a coubth'or an
easy chair during the holidays.
They accept their fate with
gace, of course, but the help of
their servants through this try-
ing period is just a dream gone
up in smoke.
We had the occasion to observe
this matter of the disappearing
worker just this week when our
office boy and good man Friday
came up with a story about his
being suddenly summoned to the
bedside of his csickx mother. He
told a most convincing.story of

The DW0IO is powered by a 115 HP.

lowers operating costs by using low cdst,
non-premium fuels, without fouling. The
brakes on the trailing unit take hold an
instant before the brakes on the tractor,
thereby preventing jackknifing and assur-
ing pafe operation. Mechanical steering is
aided by an hydraulic mechanism, giving
the driver complete control and a "feel

they woulM have taken for fire
crakers if they had not seen Car-
puccio fall on the grass. Tiberio
who was bleeding profusely was
immediately taken to the Gene-
ral hospital, losing consciousness
a little after the car-started.
At the Hospital. the surgeons
and the X-ray technicians were
hastily summoned. This took a
little time as it was',unday af-
ternoon. According to our inves-
tigation. one of the three shots
made a particularly severe inju-
ry in the body of the robust
young man: the liver, the spleen.
the pancreas were torn, the right
lung punctured and invaded. by
blood. About 10:.40 Rp-lA.t wa.s.

passed on.

The funeral of the regretted
young man will be held this af-
ternoon in the Church of St. An-

General Hospital.
Tiberio Carpuccio was less
-than itwenty-fiVe years old. He
was born and raised on Rue du
