TOURIST CARD FOR CUBANS A BOOST.
FOI OUR TOURISM (G
The visit of a delegation from Cuba over the Christmas sea-
son is another illustration of the growing bonds of amity
between Haiti and her sister republic.
More and more Haitians are travelling to near-by Cuba, and
an increasing number of Chbans span the narrow channel to
Haiti. I I
Interest in Haiti is extremely alive among the Cuban popu-
lation, and many of the itttransit passengers reportedly have
inquired about visiting Haiti for a few hours while their air-
craft is being serviced at Bowen Field.
But this they. cannot do without a visaed passport, under
the present system of immigration laws. So many -potential
shoppers and sightseers are lost to the local tourist trade,
If a tourism card Were issued, to the citizens of the neighbour
ing state, it would be Ynore convenient for them to visit this
city. Tourist cards could even be sold at our airport.
This would involve no loss of revenue, because the cost of
a visa is practically the same as the price for which a tourist
card could be sold.

AN UNFUFTTATIe UXPEIENCE
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-
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 Perchoir, Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000
feet above Port-au-Prince and
its emerald bay. Guests during
tea and cocktail hour have a
front row seat at one of the most
bewitching settings ever pro-
vided for a tropical sunset.
Then the lights go on and the
curving bayshore is outlined in
a necklace of shimmering
pearls. On the bieezeswept
Lerrace, guests can watch cars
step at the Dominican border
20 miles away. '
Whether it's -a thick state-
side steak or an ethereal Rum

superbly prepared and elegant-
ly served. Felix Gu-gnard and

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 lea
sons. There one can dine on
excellent Italian food end 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 dancing 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 puw
on by the talented National
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 revol-
ving center serves as the stage
for Michel Desgrottes tri-lin-
gual crooning and a nightly
floor 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 week. 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

minated pool, with and orches-
tra providing music for outdoor
dancing on its marble patio. The

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 glass. 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-

AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pcrshawh) The Perch)
The most spectacular view in
Haiti: 2,000 square miles of
Hamti spread out before you -
a miracle of color, form, sun-
light and sha8ow! 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
)u ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through thb pretty little
town of Petionville, then up a
winding mountain road, borde-
red by flaming giant pointsetta
plants. You p.ss 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, and gentlemen
are asked to wear coats in the
restaurant after 7 p. m. Allow
two hours for this trip plus
time to eat.
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-Haltien by
car. Its about 170 miles and a
nainimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours
to enjoy it most. So to one of
Cap HaY'tien's cpnfortable 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
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.
If you want another trip off-
the-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
Haitian provincial sea-coast
towns waiting for better days
to come. Jacmnidl 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

HAPPY NEW YEAR
CHRISTMAS EYE went out with a bang this year a series of
bangs to be exact.
From Petionville to Rond Point, from Bizoton to beyond the horizon,
from dawn to dusk the petards popped and boomed.
Out of that roaring maelstrom of sound -that caustic cacophony of
explosive reiteration- ghostly forms emerged. Healf-seen shapes of
dancers drifted by in the acrid fog of gunpowder smoke; cowering,
shrieking women fainting from shock and the bitter odour of mock
THE STORY BEHIND IT
Behind this seemingly mindless indulgence of puerile self a-sertion
is an age-old story of a quaint and superstitious people.
The Ancient Chinese, inhabitants of Marco Polo's Cathay, wyere the
first to discover gun-powder. They immediately recognized in it a power-
ful potential of protection and self preservation.
Thus it was that the ancient sages employed the new force to ward
off evil spirits And neither wedding nor feast day went by without
a salvo-of fireworks to keep the supernatural peace.
The tradition has persisted into this (lay and country though the
.motive has long since faded into the mists of forgetfulness.
THE SAGA OF THE SAGE
But if the motive has faded into insignificance, the practice itself
has gained rather than lost popularity, and fireworks today grace not
only weddings and teasts, but the ordinary, otherwise hum-drum days
of December Bfefore the anniversary of Christ's birth.
Presumably, there is a subconscious awareness that there exists
todsy a vaster, m6re formidable array of spirits. against which it is
necessary to be on guard on occasions of celebration. Perhaps, though
Sartre's super-strata of consciousness is completely innocent of a -me-
mory or suggestion of the reason for fireworks, a hereditary awareness
has persisted, and Man still feels the eery presence of malevolent
spirits, and feeling them quiets his malaise with a crescendo of ex-
plosion and sense-dulling fumes.
However that may be, it is certain that the presence of spirits was
felt in Rendez-vous this past December 24th. Encouraged by the fact
that one had merely to caress a bottle to obtain the metaphysical. re.
sults of an Aladdin, the guests grew fidgety.
No Chinese sage, transplanted from the era of Confucious, would
therefore have been surprised when -chloralts.- commenced to shatter
the shrill music of that enclosed hall.
It is doubtful whetherr any evil spirits hoxering rear heard it and
were afraid lut there was no doubt about the clientele!
In one-half qf the tenth part of a second Ca:no's open-air dance
-.floor was overflowing, cars were zooming olf in Jl directions and in

The Casino was soon to become the theatre of a dramatic episode
as onchee again the firecrackers boomed. ,
Evidently there were spirits, of an unbottled species abroad that
night (perhaps mere manifestations of delirium tremens) because in
the midst of the fireworks .a dancer abruptly abandoned his partner
tand sauntered off-stage iuLo the shrubbery.
Most people discreetly-turned away their eyes -or at'least their
heads- But those who looked were amazed to see the gentleman rise
one arm above his elegantly pointed pin-head: in it was a 'revolver.
Four shots were fired into the sky. Then the hero put away his gun
and turned to walk back to his table, a smile of achievement lighting
