ramrd AIlep Re-explains Why

Flour Mill $IS NOT Practical


I already said what I had. to
say; and had no intention of". re-
peating myself but as I have
the impressIon, by T. J. Grant's
article )published in the 4 Sun
last week, he did not follow the
race. For. Mr. Grant's sake I
clarify the position once and
for al.

1 -. Mr-Grant wrote that 4the
statistics of the Fiscal Depart-
menet show many other classes
of merchandise carried to. out-
portsa, but inrforhnately he did
nbt Ico e' with any figures: to
convince anyone. I know there
are other. ,lasses of merchandise
going to the outports, but, Mr.
(Grant, whr-.1 fs the tontage ? I
repeat that besides flour, the
incoming tonnmage for other class
E., oC- merchandise is insignifiant.
I take the7port of Aux Cayes for
example which imports about
300 tons per month during the
season out of that quantity
about 280 tons are flour. The
same appDly for Can -Haitien. Go-


at the Fiscal Department. He
should also know, since he was
at the Fiscal Department, that
our Custom laws do not permit
foreign flag vessels to go on
coastwise with cargo from one
port to another. How 'could the
steamship lines carry that flour
to the rutpoets ?
I repeat steamship'lines will
not call at the outports for only
28 tons of cargo. Mr. Grant, if
I did not convince you, ask the
steamship Tines, operating in

Triangular
Battle For
Gen. Magloire Cup
The opening of the triangular
football tournament with Vene-
zuela, Panama and Haiti compet-
ing for the General Magloire Cup
brought a capacity crowd to Sta-
dium Magloire Moiday evening.

In the first of the six matches
Haiti beat Panama 3-2. It was a
well balanced game with Haiti
showing more comprehension of
the tactical side, which was res-
ponsible for their winning al-
though they were, twice tied by
the fast playing Panamanians
who were continually on the
ball. ,
Haiti'. Jacques, outside right,
gave a great performance .passing
the two balls which were convert-
ed into goals by center forward
Fenol. The first goad was scored
from a penalty kick by Marc Elie.

HAITI SUN


Gerard Allen lie-explains Why

Flour Mill IS NOT Practical
(Continued from page 1)


2 Mr.t"Grant, I repeat the
stevedores in Port au Prince
will lose aoout $156,000 dollars.
You are still at the time when
your star descended into the
Limbo reserved for retired mi-
nor functionaries as the steve-
dores were getting then $.06c per
hour, but, Mr. Grant, fortunate-
Sly 1946 came and the stevedores
are earning now $.25c rer hour
on straight time and $.50 on
overtime.
Mr. Grant, do you know that
there are two classes of steve-
dores in the ports of Haiti ?
Those who load and unload fo-
reign bound vessels and those
Swho load and unload coastwise
schooners. The first ones get
$.25c and $.50c per hpur when
working overtime, the others
otly $.70c a day. Now, please
tell me how ethe stevedores in
the outports will lose nothing ,.

3 Mr. .Grant, you should
know better than myself that,
for the time being, Haiti cannot
spare .its income for any expe-
riment of that sort, when her
incomes are limited. Any ven-
ture in which my country goes
in should be a source of revenue
(Artibonitp valley project for ex-
ample). and not a source of ex-
penses. If we have a modern
wharf in Port au 'Prince, the
wharf should be self-supporting.
Mr. Grant, when you advance
that the Government should
support the wharf, I understand
by that the Government would
be also supporting the flour
mill,

What about the Cap-Haltien.
Pier *bich has cost millions of
dollars to the Government and
is milr:-- supported by flour.
For your Information, coastwise
'cargoes momentt, etc.) do notl
pay any wharfage to that pier.
iShould the Government support
it, too? If that flour mill .project
Is Wacepted, do you nut think that
tt new. pier at Jacmel is no
more a necessIlty ?
41- Mr. Grant, I repeat, with
qualification (my common
sense), if 1no flour is imported,.
freight charges on other imports
will itezase. I AM CfERTAIN
"OF 1118. When you take the I


Services o0 New York-Port-au-
* Prince for example, the weekly
. average if general cargo ( no
Flour ) carried by a line about
e 100 tons (weight) at about $60.00
* a ton the steamship line earns
only about $6,000.00 gross. Mr.
Grant, do you know how much
it costs per day to operate a
vessel like the PANAMA or the
SORISTOBAL ? Do you know
That the charter of a 2000 tons
ship is now about $20.000.00 per
month without fuel, oil and wat-
er? Your common sense does
not tell you that, under those
conditions, freight rate will in-
crease on the other commodi-
ties. oThis sort of thing ), French
people call it CHANTAGE or
BONS SENS ?
5 Mr. Grant, I said that the
flour mills have have about $3
million dollars of credit in Hai-
ti. If you still, doubt it, ask' the
Banks they are still here.

I suppose you must be in the
secret of cohe mdn who intend
to build this milk at you said
they care not fools wetting their
feet for the first time in inter-
national commercial and indus-
trials seas. They know that cre-
dit will have to be extended if
they expect to sell flour in Hai-
ti ).

Mr. Grant, I thought of one
thing and I wanted my fellow
citizens to profit of it. I used to
control about 90% of the cement
importation of Haiti. The credit
I received frojn my suppliers
was also extended to the retail-
ers. Now, to buy one bag of ce-
ment froma-the local cement fac-
tory, all"o'&"us merchants, we
have to pay cash. I do not know
if you knew also that the cement
factory knew that credit will
have to be extended if they ex-
pected. to sell ecement in Hai-
ti.

carried in countries producing
and not-prnrducing wheat.

8 Mr. Grant, if you have
ever seen a large flour mill in
operation, you should know that
cto sweep upn the dust and rubb-
ish from such a mill, they use
exhausters that to stack the
flour they use elevators. A mill
like the one of International
Milling at Buffalo, New York
producing 14,000 bags of flour
per day employs 50 men altoget-
her (mechanics, chemists, cleric-
al and supervisor personnel )..

9 Mr. Grant, I am no super-
man, but' I know they get from
the wheat: patent flour, bakers
flour, feed flour, Bran, Shorts.
Could you tell me how they make
muffins ? This is not my branch,
I do not know, so, thanks In ad-
vance.

1 Mr. Grant, do you know
that the flour mill wants to ope-
rate under 'the protection of the
last law on new industries? Do
you know that law will give tax-
es' exemption' on the imported
wheat for 10 years? Do you know
that law' will 'give 5 years' of in-
come taxes exemption to the
flour mill' Could you tell me
where the Government will fe-
cover the" $7.40 per bag of im-
port duty ? How could you ad-
vance that the Government will
not lose one cent? when, with
that new law the Government
cannot apply any taxes whats-
over on tht so-called new indus-
tries ?
Enfin, M:. Grant saw a esav-
ing z of $2.60 per 'sack if the
flour is miUed in Haiti, and that
saving will go in the safe of the
flour mill.
Eh blen Mr. Grant, Gerard
Allen, lui-mdme, sees that csav-
ings already in the pockets of
thousand of stevedores, in the
budget of the Government, and
in the safe of the steamship
lines which for years and jrearq
have given us good services.
Mr. Grant, I will- not come
back on this subject again, so I
am distributing for, you ypur
$2.60 "saving per sack:
Landing charges (Haiti) $.30
per sack ..
Stevedoring (Haiti) $.101 per
sack
Handling Customs (Haiti) $.38

sack
Steamship lines $1.70 per sack
-$2.606 per sack
Mr. Grant. this fact) is the
answer against the establish-
ment of W flour mill in Haiti.
Don't let any interested persons
convince you that this is not

Dupont People
Should Be Induced
To Congress Here
In -a recent letter to the Nation-
al Office of Tourism, Mr. Ray-
mond Flambert, %ice-President of
Charles Dejean & Co., distribut-
ors of E. I. Dupont de Nemours
& Co., stated that Haiti should do
its best to bring the 1958 Congress
of Dupont's Latin American dis-
tributors to this country 'due to
the favorable effect it will have,
on the touristic movement com-
ing from these Latin-American
countries.


Mr. Flambert stated that every
two years the American firm or-
ganized a meeting of its Latin A-
merican distributors for the 'pur-
pose of kdeping them abreast of
the latest developments of Du-
pout Laboratories and an exchan-
ge of views on their products.

In 1954 the Congress was held
in Havana, this year in Panama
City from April 17-21-and the
location of the 1958 conference
will be chosen at the Panama
meeting, he added.

'Our delegate to the Panama
Congress is planning to propose
Port-au-Prince as the seat of the
1958 session and we hope to be
able to obtain the aid of the Of-
fice National du Tourism in order
to increase our chances of suc-
cess. >> He continued, 'The assis-
tance we need would consist of
Uie preparation of 60 lots of pro-
paganda material, pamphlets,
folders, postal cards, etc., with
with the cooperation of the Asso-
ciation' Hotelire of Haiti. s

Mr. Flambert felt in his letter
that the meeting in Haiti of some
60 odd delegates from Cuba
Puerto Rico, Panama, Venezuela,
Honduras, Colombia, El Salvador,
Peru, Costa Rica and Ecuador
will-not fail to hold the attention
of the tourist office 'due to the
favorable effect it will have on
the touristic movement corning
from these Latin-American coun-
tries.

In closing the letter stated: 'In
event this proposition meets your
approval, we .would appreciate you
sending this publicity material to
the Haitian Embassy at Panama
City to the address of our repre-
sentative, Mr. Guy S. Martin, who
will take charge of the distribu-
tion., I

THEATRE D'HAITI A HIGHLIGHT OF THIS COUNTRY

I wish' to express my appreciation through your paper for.
the excellent performance given at the. Theatre d'Haiti. Par-
ticularly:am I interested in that the director, Mr. Morisseau e
Leroy has accomplished, for I had the pleasure of inviting
him to our "open air theatre on the green in Wellesley, Mas-
sachusetts. I ,
uThis is it), he exclaimed, this is exactly what I had in
mind I can use the kame idea. What he saw therknhas be- ,
come a reality. Only when one has visited the theatre. and i
seen a performance can they appreciate what a heroic-'pfete
of work has been done. Haiti should be proud to clain Mr.' ,
Leroy as their own. ,
I spoke tvith him after one of the performances and Ie*Ahed
many things. His hope fdr the theatre is a .challenging one-
It is only'the beginning for bigger and better things. It
will b a meeting place, a r-und table, for authors and actors
'to write' to do ixierimental work and develop this new
kind of theatrical advttltre under the stars and give the
public .stingished entertainment.
Mr. Leroy is striving tbr more portable lighting and' sound.
equipment as well as se6*ery. In this .way he can transport
his equipment and play in all the provinces bring to the
public all types of plays and give professional performances.
He should play to thousands of people. I have been told his
cAntigoni' filled the stadium.
This, to me is not a surprise, for we, at Cambridge where
Mr. Leroy was invited by Harvard College to be one of the
.speakers tlhi past. summer, were impressed with his sincerity
.and ambitions.
Many people have tried to discourage. him only to change
their opinions when they realized what he was trying to ac-
complish. "
I sincerely hope that the public will support thisAtheatre
either by attending performances, or contributions:-, *s.,pubs-
ceribing as a patron.
It will help build .this new undertaking and when we in the
U.S. speak of qutstandifng' theatres on.the green,, the The-
atre d'Haiti can be mentioned as a highlight of the country.
Cordially, Elizabeth Rifehin,
Director of their Msqi1ers, Boston. i

Dear Editor,
After haviiig read, tHaiti: The
Black Republic ) by Selden
Rodman I have become confus-
ed over one little item. Or I
should say two little items. ,
, On page 132 it states that aft-
er Christophe set torch to the
city of Cap Haitian in 1802 only
59' houses remained out of 2,000.
rhe rebuilt city was shaken
down again by an earthquake in
1842 and e what was left was
flattened;, by a hurricane in
1928.
Cap 'Haitians say that this is
false and their mountains "and
barrier reefs have protected the
city from hurricanes and that
it was Port-au-Prince t4at was
flattened and not the' Cap ?
Where does the truth lie ?
'Rodman says the reefs have
insulated the Cap against both
commerce and tourism, but I un-
derstand that many tourist ships
used to stop in the Cap before
the war. unloading 'hundreds of
tourists in the' city. Again, what
happened ?.,
S J. Edgar Fla


Dear Mr Diederich,
IHaiti's parks and gardens are
amongst the loveliest in the
world but can't something be
done about its historic sights
and' monuments. Port-aa4Princet
parks are very clean and well
kept and the public squares and
gardens in Cap Haitian are beau-
tiful.,.

' .. ', I1


Priceless documents in the
museums, however, are often
held to the wills by a single
nail and the result is that they
are starting to fold up and crack.
Irreplaceable photos are beginn-
ing to fade and fall apart for
'the sawe reason. Isn't it possi-
ble to frame these monuments
to Haiti's glorious past.
Gardens and parks are in won-
derful condition and yet famous
Fortresses .nd colonial fountains
are falling in a state of disrepair
due to an overgrowth of weels,
trees and failure to keep up the
paths leading to -these sombre
guardians of Haiti's past.
Fort Picolet and the Fontaine
du Commun at Cap Haitian. and'
Moren Rouge are examples of
the decay that is setting in and
gradually removing these inte-
resting old tourist attractions
from the public eye.
With a minimum of expense
these Haitian landmarks, could
be recondlticned. and kept in a
state of cleanliness.
'Hpping your readers will egree

EQUANIL in the nemoses of

P. PHILADELP.HIA U.S.A-
YETH LkABORATORIES of
PHILADELPHIA U.S.A. have
announced that a -new and ex-
traordinai3y pharmaceut'tcal pro-
duct is now a ailahle to the medi-
Val profession, which' rapidly and

studies carried out in thousands
of patients, EQUANIL has de-
mouotratedi that it does not cau-
se habit formation and that it


.is affective and non toxic. It
does not affect mental alertness.
These patients upon waking, up
in the morning did not experien-
ce drowsiness or drug hangover,
reactions ihich are characterist-
ic of the ubual sedatives and so-
porifics. Thousands of persons
suffering from neurosis, which
is commonly accompanied by
tension or anxiety motivated by
the strains of fast-paced modern
living, have been helped with
EQUANIL.
EQUANUL is derived from
Propanediol. It is a -medicament

with complaints of tight feel-
ings, taut muscles and restless
nights. 23 were cured or improv-
ed so mucn that the symptoms
no longer concerned them.
Patients suffering from mens-
trual stress were relieved when
they took EQUANIL. A majori-
ty of patients bothered by. psy-
chozomatic pains associated ,
with stomach distress, often a
painful indication of nervous
tension, were relieved when they
were treated with EQUANML.
Unlilok ba-biturates, physicians
have been ,ble to produce rest-
ful sleep withoutt dreams or
nightmares, ever case treated
with Equnil except for
persons in a psychotic.
E q u a n i I does not cause

Those who have received EQUA-
NIL for a considerable time have
not required progressive dosage
on the contrary the desired ef-
fect has been achieved with di-
minishing doses.
EQUANTL has demonstrated
also his usefulness in maintain-
ing sobriety in alcoholic patients.
Once abstinence has been achieve
ed it is maintained more easily.
good clinical results have also
been obtained in treating skin
manifestations, abdominal up-
sets and headaches of psychoso-
matic origin.

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
bend of these two elements
than Le Perchoir, Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000


feet above Port-au-Prince -and
;s emerald bay. Guests during
ea and cocktail hour have a
frontt row seat at one of the most
bewitching settings ever pro-
vided for a tropical sunset.

Whether it's a thick state-
side steak or an ethereal Rum
Jouffl6, Le Perchoir food is
superbly prepared and elegant-
ty served. Flix Gulgnaard and
Kis 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

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
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 Petionkm-
ville's thatched-roofed night
club,'Cabane Chouooune, 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.
P
Saturday night is also the
night for taking trips into the
nearby hills to attend the pea-
sant cbamboches or non-reli-
gious dances held in open ton-
nelles to the pulsing beat of
the voodoo drums. It's an UN-
FORGEITABLE expr.-. ience.
For late Stayer uppers any


night of the week, Dan Al:en's
Rendez-vous across form the
International 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. I
For dinner minus dancing,
there is Petionville's Le Picar-
di a French-run Pension fea- ,
turning Esoargot, pepper steak
and the sort of food rarely seen
or tasted off the Midi. In Port-
au-nPrince, Autx Cosaques is
known for its tasty flaming
lobster aind 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 Chanticleer,
tucked away in Bois Verna, is
the latest addition to the swart
eating houses in Port-au-Prince
Open all night.

S ted with Hai-
^ .h i there are
many intere-
(sting trips
l 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-

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

you can rent a car or a jeep at
reasonable rate; or you can.
rent ears, with or without
chauffers, elsewhere. The Hai-

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

city. You will fell a great pity
for the jaded characters who
have not strayed from the bar

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

to this breath-taking, unbelie-
eable and unforgettable view

Prince, through the pretty little


town of Petionville, then up a
winding mountain road, borde-

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.


r'-

If you have the time, we re-
commend that you take three
days and g, to Cep-Uietien 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 Ha'itien'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.

the-beaten track go to Jacmel,
on Haiti's south coast. Jacmel,

to come. Jacmed has a flavor
of its own. To get there, you
can take the eay way. by air,
or the adventurous" way by

ly every mile of which has a
river crossing. Near Jacmel is

SLEEP TAKES
DRIVER INTO
75 METER DIVE

The driver of a Brown &
Root Company truck was se-
riously injured and his passeng-
er killed last week when he al.
legedly went to sleep at the
wheel and crashed over a 75
meter precipice.
The heavy truck, transporting
sand for the construction of the
damn, was badly smashed on the
river bed and despite the
prompt arrival of fellow work-
ing men who, using pliers and
sledges, opened the crushed ca-
bin they found Foreman Jean
Montbrun dead. The driver was
taken to the St. Nicolas Hospit-
al in St. Marc after receiving
first aid at Peligre.
Monthrun was the oldest fore-
man of the Brown & Rodt works
and had been working at Peli-
gre since the beginning of 1953
when dam construction was be-
gun.

LATIN MAMA


UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. -
tINS, Papa may philander,
but Mama better behave in Haiti,
Nicaragua and Mexico.
A United Nations study has
found that even an unmarried
mother get comparatively little
help from the law In those three
countries, and the lothario may
live unhampered.

The civil code of Haiti spells
out in no uncertain terms the
proper attitude of the new
bride: The wife owes obedien-
ce to her husband. The law
forbids her to leave Haiti or get
a passport without consent of
her husband.
Proved faithless, the Haitian
wife can be jailed for -not less
than' three months, and not more
than one year. A wife's adultery
also is ready grounds for divorce.


S
d(

BAt the Haitian husband can be "
divorced only if he establishes s
his spare-time amour in the fa-C
mily home.
The Nicaraguan husband can
divorce his wife if she commits
adultery. But the little woman
must prove to the judge her hus-
band behaved in a notorious
and scandalous manners or
ma~ntaiped a concubine in his
home. ,
The Mlexican wife can divorce
he- spouse if he has 'proposed or
profited from his wife's prostitu-
tHoh. ,.
LA\%s of ,il threo countries
show little sympathy for the un-
wed mother, stating explicitly
the. she can't force the father to.

gua Ihe wrc.i2ed girl doesn't have
the right to demand maintenance

Well informed sources at the Cape stated that there were interests
in Port au Prince who, for selfish reasons, were spreading utterly
false information about existing conditions in the north when actually
there were few mosquitoes, safe drinking water, cleaA" end wholesome
food and a wide assortment of sights and entertainments.

.t.e. needed to keep the entire area clean and to pick up around the

Bellande Explains Diquini Project
At uSylvio Cator Park)
Corner-Stone laying
With th? Chief of the Nation er the effcirts made by his pre-


laying the cornerstone of the
<,Sylrio Cator Parks the pre-
inauguration ceremonies of the
new Touristic City of Diquini,
last Friday, Haiten industrial
Dumont Bellande and his group
of financiers set a new goal for
tourist accommodations, with a
new approach to furthering the
development of the tourist in-
'dustry here. The park was nam-
ed in honor of the late Sylvio
Cator. -Olympics hero and pione-
er of the tourist movement in
Haiti.

Jn an eloquent Anaugural
spech, Mr. Bellande stated that
the presencee of President Ma-
gldire was'p still.. another, indica-
tion'of thd eagerness of the Go-
vernment to be integrated in the
general plan of touri.tic deve-
lopment. H- ..described- the futu
re city asLf.l ultra-modeir villa-
ge, benmg.bilt at the-fopt-ofithe
Diquini hills, i a dream setting
where the deep green of0our v.e-,
getation joins the infinite blue
of our tropical sea.
<,We are going into this, after
many other ventures, with con-
fidence that this great enterprise
will carry our country towards
the supremacy which it must
attain in the domain
of tourism., Mr. Dumont de-
clared. Nature has favored us
and the convulsions of this glo-
be have offered us the remarka-
ble chance or placing this corn-


decessors. for certain among
them have said that it is another
brick added to the edifice which
can only strengthen, if not en-
large it.
Referring to Sylvio Cator, Mr.
Bellande asked that a minute of
meditation be accorded the me-
mnory of the late Olympic Cham-
pion who not only was a real
Ambassador of Haitian prestige,
but was the forerunner of tou-
rism in Haiti. the future of
which he never doubted. He
referred to the mutual fratern-
al affection which existed bet-
weeh MIr. Cator and the Presi-
dent stating that no one was bet-
ter fitted to place the first stone
of the pedestal that would rer
ceive the bust of the famous
athlete: and patriot.
He then Yirequested President
Magloire to c--ux the ribbon open-
ing the road leading to the fu-
' jfire Diquhii City, from which
the first 20 of the 200 unities al-
ready-;gave an idea of what the
project would be like upon its
completion.
Here Mr. Bellande observed:
out, without showing any parti-
cular vanity, that our project so
far is specifically Haitian and
has not needed to make an ap-
peal to foreign capital? No one
will contest my allegation when
I state that it was with the fi-
nancial aid of an honorary citi-
zen of Port-au-Prince, a man

World's Prettiest
Football Federation
Secretary
(Continted from Page 1)
She came to her present posi-
tion the hard way. For two years
Adela organized football in the
smaller towns with such success
that the Federation heads called
her to the capital to take over as
secretary.
In an interview with the Sun.
Thursday Adela Mitil, who played
football as a youngster in the
streets of Panama with her bro-
thers and has had a passion for
the sport ever since, said that if
the first game with Haiti had last-
ed a few minutes longer her
boys would have won. The Pana-
manians were thunderstruck hby
the public and the country and so
didn't give their best but- when
they meet again, on the twelth,
she assured the r Sun that it
will be victory for Panama be-
cause they know the Haitian play-
ers and know what to expect.
The young lady, who has her
own embroidery school in Pana-
ma, refused to predict the score
of the next match with Haiti but
mentioned she was surprised to
find out how well prepared the
Haitians we*.
Asked whether girls should play
football she answered, why not ?
and pointed out that the only all-
girl team in this area is the Cos-
ta Rican team which played in
Panamn. two years ago.
The national sport of Panama
is baseball,' possibly brought


about by the influence of the Ca- romancee Da(I
nal Zone, but Senora Mitil feels;
that football will eventually come
into its own and ttfreaten the po- rrogresses
polarity of the hit and run game.
SThe peasants o f the Leogane
Plain region are enthusiastic
