Haiti, Missing Link

In Global T. V.?
A country without television,
Haiti may soon find itself in the
awkward position of forming a
gap in the giant network, which,
will be the first electronic .link
between the Americas, via -the
Caribbean, with emphasis on TV.
A daring project, connected
with the even more breath-taking k
plan for tan around-the-world ,
electronic network, this step to-
ward TV on an international scale
made news here this week with
the visit of Mrs. William S. Hals-
lead, -wife of the' engineer who
is wel op hts Way toward realiz-
ing Vhat appeared a few years
ago and stillappears to many
as one "of the most daring pro-
jects of our century. She was ac-
comparlied 'by her son Dirk, a
-MAGNUM photo reporter who
worked on several stories, here,
and 'her young daughter Anne.
They 'stayed at Hotel Dambala.
Interviewed as to her husband's
views inf'o'onpeetion with the pos-
sibility of',having TV 'in Haiti,.
Mrs. Halstead stated that as far
as she could see, nothing Vhata .

LAMENT OF AN AMERICAN MALE:

Where are the Haitian Women?
- There goes Ti Rb-Ro, beating his drum.
- My wife is dancing while I soak up the Barbancourt Rum
I read, in Haiti there's-more women than men
If this be true, where are the dear girls hiding then?
I'm only a tourist and I like to dance
-But with this doggoned meringue I haven't a chance.
A. Murray gaily took my hard earned cash
and taught me to dance with a certain dash. '
"Afs was to train me for anything new
9u!t we who can do it are oh, so few.
S: here I sit, lonely and glum
with not thing to dance with but a bottle of Rum.
I'm not complaining as I look to the hills
and thank .the stars 1 have my ulcer pills...

GERANT-RESPONSABLE PAUL E. NAJAC

USE FRENCH WHEN POSSIBLE

Tourism is making more changes in the world today than
the glaciers in the Ice Age, the atom bomb in the war, or
raNmk-loving Mendes-France in the drinking laws.
Paris, tourist "capital of the world, is perhaps hardest hit
by the wave of influence.

In ten years an American visitor to Paris who bils a native
cf.Bon Soira is likely to greeted with a reply like this:
cLook Busta, what language're you speaking' huh?

If he dares to say French, the unhappy tourist will proba-
bly be informed: xMister, I thought you were doing something
peculiar. Nobody talks that lingo hereabouts any more. I've
lived in Paris all my life -born on in St. Germain- but I've
always spoken English... Say, you must be from the Provin-
ces, hear 'they're still talking good old French back there.
Another town destined for a similar fate is Port au Prince.
This trend is shown in the shop signs, the increasing number
of English speaking tourist guides, and the use of English
in Immigration services.

So all the cpolemic in favour of teaching the peasants
French is due for rapid death. If the Frenc4 teachers win
and manage to have everybody in Haiti reading and writing
the referred language of Voltaire, they will still be separated
from their urban compatriots, because soon only provincials
will be able to speik, French at all.

suLA PRENSA,, BACK IN CIRCULATION
First Edition of the reopened ,La Prensa. was sent to the Haitian
Press this week by Roger WoUin, PAA's Public Relation Chief.
The reappearance of the great Argentina newspaper 'La Prensa-
"marks a memorable occasion in the-history of the struggle for free-
dom of the press.
The powerful, independent Buenos Aires newspaper which refused
to kow-tow to -dictator Peron -and wa finally confiscated by legal
force and farce has now resumed publication under its rightful owner
Dr. Aliaerto Gainza Paz.

CURB BLACK MARKI"ING OF MOVIE TICKETS!
I I
aLe Jour, lashed out, in-its issue of Monday, February 6th, against
the alleged black marketing of theater tickets in the Capital: -The
Black 'Marlket is flourishing in Front of Our Theaters..
For several weeks now, the black marketing of tickets to our movie
houses has recommended, going stronger than ever. The -salesmen,,
more numerous and bolder than ever, have no fear of plying their.
illicit trade, calmly, under the eyes of the police, right near the ticlft
winbws of the -theaters.
At the Paramount, especially on Svturdays, in spite of the eVprts
of the Management, have not been able- to stop this racket which is
becoming a menace to the regular clientele of the theater. The Pol-
ice, -vigilant guardian of order, wust take a hand, promptly to put
an end to this black marketing of tickets, -urged the irate editors
of the daily.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR.

Dear Sir:

With all this talk about com-
mercial agreements between Hsi-
ti and Canada. reaching a satis-
factory climax through the work
of a commercial mission from
Haiti, it is sad to realize that no-
thing is being done on the immi-
gration side.

Canadian irqmigration policy
makes it clear that Haitians are
not wanted in Canada because of
their ethnical backgrounds. In
fact the Carmnadian Immigration
Ministry is practising a policy of
'utter discrimination in granting
resident visas to Haitians who
would Jlke to remain in Canada,
in order to perfect their educa-
tion after having taken courses
in one of their schools or colle-
ges.

This situation Is really odd
when one considers how liberal
our immigration laws are ,in Hai-
ti and how easy it is for Cana-
dians to take up residency in
Haiti.

Very Truly yours,
'FAIR DEALER.

SPEND ON MEN
INSTEAD OF HORSES

Editor Miami Herald: On the
same page of your newspaper I
read that they offered $1,500,-


000 for a race. horse named Nas-
hua and that the American wint-
er Olympic team is getting a
shellacking from Russian and
European teams.


If it weren't for gambling, a
horse would not be worth a dol-
lar a pound.

More money and time should
be spent on American athletes
than dn horses.

ANDRE EL SAIEH
Port-au-Prince, Haiti


Dear aSun


Why don't you suggest to the
manufacturers and handmakers
of Sisal goods the, go in for new
styles more frequently ? After
many trips to Haiti, which have
included numerous shopping
spress, I now find it difficult to
purchase anything as it is all
the same. I begin to be envious
of friends returning from other
islands with beautifully spec-
tacular hats, bags, shoes, skirts,
etc. that do not fall apart in a
very short time. This seems to
be very important as more and
more tourists are making return
Strips but buying only once.

Pont Beudet-
Dear Reader,
I know -you will not believe my story. J know you'will think me
mad. Well I am. But my story is not madness,. my madness resulted
from my story as you irill' see.
I am a Martian, and as. you ho doubt have read in 'ne of the very.
fine science fiction magaziniesI am in reality very little different
frdov the ,Earthmen. There is one major difference and that difference
, was my undoing.
in ".Mars they do not dance. Martians sing, it is'true, though their
-singing an be .cbioipared more readily with Mendelsohn's composit-
jon than with ichel Desgrotte's Trois Bebes. Boys and girls get
together fOr lihay-a.ides and picnics, boating and moonlight walks, they
g6 for long ride in c'rk aand. on horse-back, they go for hikes, swim
togethe,-Wind everything vlse But they do not dance.
You will understand then how great was my dilemma when I was
assigned to 'Mission XK 3 for espionage service in the World. Our
scientists had only recently perfected our new 1.000/78 rocket and I
was chosen to occupy the sole seat on its expedition to this part of
the Universe.






f4;,
4As

ido






I .







By chance Ilanded in the mountains of Haiti near the Dbominican
border, and I set out to explore the country.
Everihing went well until I arrived in Port au Prince. It was Sat
,urday fight. The drums were 'throbbing, the pipes wierdly moaning
I went into a.cafm.
There'. I saw men and women, of the same general type as those
in Mars: doing very strange things. They hugge4 and spun and dipped
and shuffled. They attacked each othe- ferociously pushing each
other, then they would combine forces 'to attack another couple-char
going thm. roughly with the shoulder and occasionally using the knee
.to advantage.
As they'staggered by in a frenzied mass, I looked out over the' Ex
position and saw the moon flipping silently, .with a red and silver
aurd into the tinsel sea. Far dbove, hundreds of millions of light year
above Mars twinkled humorously.
I hastily ducked bdut ol the oafe to commune with -my spirit, but in
the road we're more people shuffling and dipping -wildly,, in pairs or
alone, to the strange/irythmn of the music seeping through the doors.
The nightmare was not.finished. Everywhere I went that night the
strange ritual was in progress. I had heard of Earth's primitive cust-
oms end I was afraid.
Was this some sacrificial rite, the last wild frenzy before a desper-
ate mass hari-kari? Was it me that they had heard of and were they
working themselves into an orgeistic mood before tearing me slowly
apart in time to the fascinating drums?
That I did not know. But my poor Martian mind conceived the wierd
est fantasies, supplied the most fantastic theories.
By ,morning I found myself here in Pont Beudit, and the dancing
Sis more restrained in this wonderful institution. An inmate explained
the principle of *dancing, to me, and I must confess I am very glad
to be here My nervous system could not stand another Mardi Gras
in Port au Prince.
Yours Truthfully

President Paul Magloire Decem

fifth anniversary at the head of
the Haitian Government, inclu-
des, too, a receiving clinic of
out patients where all kinds of
chest trouble are treated. There
is also a room for experimental
surgery on animals.
On the second floor of the
new end block, which completes
the rectangle started by the for-
mer Sanatorium building, is a
new theater where Getreral Hos-
pital internes gather each Thurs
day at 11:00 a.m. to attend lec-
tures given by staff doctors.
The weekly staff meeting, Mo-
vies and Mass for the patients
also are held in this large airy
hall.
There is. a modern dental cli-
nic, a .laboratory, surgical ward,
X-ray room and all the facili-
ties needed to make the Port,au

to any in the Caribbean.

... Dr. Louis Roy declared in
his speech during the inaugural
ceremony. The patients will
live here in a fresher and gayer
atmosphere which will relieve
their suffering and hasten their
recovery. Before their arrival
here, an outpatients' clinic will
assess their condition more exact
ly, and a better idea will be for-
med of their problems. During
their internment, the theater,
cinema, radio, religion will re-
build,their shaken morale; be-
fore they leave a Service de Re-
habilitation will guide their
first steps towards resumption
of an active life.
The Sanitorium, built under

set aside at Carrefour Feuille
by Seymour Pradel, commands
an extensive,. .View of the city
and the mountains.'The women's
ward in thenew block faces the
hills, the mei's fhces the city.
And on the corner of the block,
in a meditative setting,'tranquit-
ly overlooking Port au .Prince,
is the library with ranges of
empty boottsbelves, not yet fill-
ed with much needed reading
matter for the patients. (Contri-

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 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
* Gouffl 6, Le Perchoir food is
superbly 'prepared and elegant-
ly served. Felix Guign-ard and
his 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
exc6:.:.it Italian food and later
visit the gaming tables which
are meticulously run under the
supervision of the Haitian Go-
vernmerit. 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 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 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.


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 Perchoir, Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000

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
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 glass. There is an en-
trance fee which varies depen-

for the evening. The Caban,

If you really
S want to.bec.
irnme aoquain-
S^'aed with Hai-
i, there are
J k many intere-
(sting trips
l.- which afford
a close-up of
a'- Haitian life
which you cannot gain if you
confine your sight-seeing to the
city. I !. ,'.:
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 ca; 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 SUGGESTIONS


(for wlch you will have a new
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 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
t'ips first, here are a few boiled
down suggestions for travel in
lHaiti:

BOUTILLIERS MOUNTAIN
AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pcrshawh) 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
ju ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through the pretty little


tovwn of Pe'ionville, 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, 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 Cap-Haitien by
car. Its about 170 miles and a
minimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours
to enjoy it most. So to one of
Cap HaYitien'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.-
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. Jacmid 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 eveiy mile of which has a
river crossing. Near Jacmel is

some 60 miles from Port-au- 'i

DERAC, A SISAL TOWN OF THE NORTH

Once I asked 'my pop what a -model farm>, was. -Well son ordi-
narily, where a pig lays down the farmer builds his pen around it....
That was a good way' of approaching the sub.ject. Maybe it is a good
way.of approaching ours,tbecause Derae is not like the average Hait-
ian town, built where the relatives stray.

Derac is a model Lov.n because it was built up around a prospering
foreign interest just one product Sisal. When approaching Der-
re.c you 'have the impression of being where trees never'grow. Miles
and miles of sisal plants in neat even rows meet the eyes, north, south
east and west. When Haitians quit interesting themselves in cutting
down the blades of the sisal plants in their yards and little farms,
Derac never suffered any loss due to shear quantity. The drop in
prices on the sisal market world-wide, though disheartening to share
holders of this northern project, did not at all cut down on the plant-
ing and reaping of the strong, rubber-like sisal plants. Sisal is still
Being planted, the factories for decorticating are still -running, and
thousands of Haitians still find employment in the sisal industry.

Derac looks as if it were built on a desert, which it may some day be
if all interest is lost in sisal. The houses were built it straight rows
to aecomodate thousands of field and factory, workers. The houses are
tiny, so there are hundreds of them, a tin-roof section and a straw-
roof section; they were built only to house (workers). The town has
a water system, with outlets at several locations. Then we have the
not-to-be forgotten places -military post, bureau of contributions and
something added a pay office. A canteen. and ice house
supply local needs, but'most surprising of-all is the -stadium,, used
for outdoor attractions. This is definitely a foreigner's idea. Can you
imagine a baseball diamond in Haiti? Back of home base is a huge
chicken-wire shield, back.of which is seating accommodation for about
fifty people. That is what is called the stadium.
Foreigners visiting Derac ivill be pleased to know that the road is
moaernly paved right from Cap-Haitien to the road of entry to Derac.'
Also, there are several colored English-speaking foremen from British
possessions of the Caribbean,and they are always happy to take you
on a tour of the sisal factory. There you see the green sisal leaves
go in one side of the factory, and huge bales of blond beautiful sisal
fibre come out the other. The whole arrangement stresses mass pro-
duction, that is why the affair didn't fold up when the sisAl prices
dropped. You will see the huge machines the cruelly. rip the green
waste-matter off the leaves of sisal plants, .leaving the strong fibers
used for rope-making abroad.
Of course, Derac has a little local section too, which is very sun-
I


model-like-. This is where the activities common to all Haitian towns
take place. The parking place for camions and camidnpettes, the 'tar-' ".
ket place, a spattering of unorganized shelters, yes; hJiouses and what r 3
have you, are things quite indispensible to Haitian life. If you take
a visit to Derac, you can bring along your 110-volt appliances ---yopr-
radio for instance, because the factory supplies current to bdth..the'
'model Derac- and the "unmOdei Derac..

FROM THE LAND OF THE

(From The Havana Post Jan. 12th.)


By the time these lines appear
in print, E. R. Neale, 0. B. E.,
and Ritchie Mc Donald, two dis-
tinguishei New Zealanders,
Members of Parliament ofWthat
sovereign member-nation of the
British Commonwealth which is
situated in the general direction
of'the South Pole, should be sa-
.fely ensconced at Nat Heller's
Hotel Plaza in the noble and
loyal City of Havana.
SOther New Zealanders who
have visited this' Island during
the past twelve months have
been less warmly received,
through circumstances created
by a mutton-headed airline em-
ployee in the 'United States, who
* told them that they did not re-
quire a visa to come to Cuba.

It has always been a surprise
to me how a country like New
Zealand which, today has a po-
pulation :Pf barely .1,800,000
souls, should have individual ci-

The nearest one to Havana,
excluding your correspondent, is
Bernard Diederich, who some
years ago set out to circle the
Globe in a small sailing vessel.
He was shipwrecked on the
coast of Haiti and after having
dried his clothes in the subtro-
pioal breeze, decided that he
would establish an English-lan-
guage I newspaper. Thus *The
Haiti Sun rose over Hispaniola.
The oldest Newy Zealander In
Latin America, as. far as I have
been able to ascertain, is a tall,
s c h o l a r ly-looking gentleman
named Thompson who owns a
gold mine in the Republic of
El Salvador. Thompson was a
prospector in Darien, Panama,
and Colombia in the latter years
of last century and then went to
Central America His professor-
ial appearance is deceptive, as
can be illustrated by, an incident
which occurred 55 years ago in
Tegucigalpa, Republic on Hon-
duras, *
At that time the toughest man
in those parts was General Lee
SChristmas of New Orleans, the
American soldier of fortune, fi-
libuster and president-maker.
When in his cups, which was
frequenly, Christmas was fax
From being a silent night He
didn't like Thompson's accent
and told him so, without any
Delay. In the ensuing discussion
Christmas drew his revolver
There are several versions as to
what then occurred, but on one
Point there is unanimity. The
New Zealander took the revolv
er away from Christmas ant
- threatened to make him eat i
without benefit of ketchup.

Perhaps the best known Nev
Zealander ever go take up resi
dence in Latin America is Lo
well Yerex, founder of TACI
Airways. During World War I
Yerex was a fighter pilot in thi
Royal Air Force. He was sho
down and taken prisoner, bu
escaped by slugging a guan
amn jumping from a speeding
railway train. The Germans re
captured him as he was, about to
sneak across the frontier witi
Holland, and put him in chains


After the war, Yerex settled '
in the -United States of whicl4
his father was a great admirer.
He flew a group of Americans
down to Honduras in 1928 and
accepted their plane in lieu ofwa
ges, after they had squandered
all of their available cash. This
was the plane he and Col. Guy
Malony used such 'success in the
revolution headed by Tiburc.io
Carias. On the last day of hosti-
lities, Yerex had his eye shot
out and hts skull fractured in
two places by a bullet, but Ma-
lony held him upright,- keeping
the blood out of his good eye
with the aid of a hankerchief,
and Yerex flew 14 minutes back
to Tegucigalpa.
Following World War U, se-
veral young New Zealanders
with outstanding combat re-
cords, showed up in Central
America where they had heard
that men with the peculiar ta-
lents they had developed in
North Africa, Italy and in other
tough spots, could find employ-
ment. Two of them, a former
commando and a paratrooper,
were in San Jose, Costa Rica,
during the Carbona revolt about
the middle of 1949, and were
assigned as body-guards for the

RAMBLING ABOUT THE MAGIC ISLE
By Nouche Degener

On a bright, sunny, usual morning, we took off in a luxurious car
- a deaf chauffeur a friend (I seem to have a knack of attracting
all the Americans that have endless, hopeless, helpless, hellish quest-
ions to ask of me like: -How do you say Coca-Cola in French? or

Well that friend had two small daughters, corn
pletely unsound, ready actually for the psycho-
analyste and a dog of a peculiar kind of
breed, certainly of limited intelligence and
no -manners whatsoever. All over hill and dale
we went rocks and holes, rivers and rut, hay:

die of a stream to let the children and the. dog
,go, but as usual with our head in the clouds,

on our lips a sad and fond and regreful -good-bye for my uncomfort-

At laist Thursday came my big chance, made my heart beat with

when Bacchus, the god of wine,
ruled and commanded the peo-
ple to unlimited debauchery and
abandon throughout the land.
Orgies and street revelries were
the order of the day.
With the advent, of Christiani-
ty, the ancient Bacchanals were
diminished, but could not be
completely abolished: As .a .final
compromise, the .-'prihciple that
it was ,not good for the people
to be constrained all year to de-
cency, order and good sense
without giving them some com-
pensation for their suppressions
of normal tendencies. So it was
admitted' that the Christians be
entitled to an indemnityr dur-
ing the carnival as a reward for
.,this long period of constraint.

to complete abandon for three
days in order to purge their

WORKS OF FAMOUS

COMPOSER COMPILED

BY BROTHERS

The music of the late Haitian
Composer. Ludovic Lamothe, is
being assembled into albums by
his brothers, who are this week
launching the first volume.
Once referred to by Concert
violincellist. Zykora as the
black Chopin, Ludovic was
called the last of the romanti-
cists.

S Lamothe is a romanticist
who has no equal in the Ameri-
cas, ;, declared eminent art cri-
tic, Enrique de Marachena. The
National Concert Mureau Artist
writes...Lamothe's music ,will
give joy to many people and
make Haiti proud of their au-
thor. >

Mr. Jean Lamothe, composer
of the Meringue 4*Hayti'an Sere-
nade, > one of the trio of pu-
blishers who is visiting with re-
latives here this month, from
New York, where-,he has resided
for the past forty-two- years,
stated that this is tht realization
of a 20-year, dream. Although
the first album is copious, the
Lamothe brothers, expect to
find enough compositions of the
great. Ludovic to fill at least
two other volumes.

The first album, published
and copyrighted in the U.S. last
year has already met with great
success. Recordings of the im-
mortal works of Ludovic Lamo-
the are planned in the near fu-
ture.
