President Paul Magloire offer-
ed to pay $150 out of his own
pocket for a doctor to go to the
Island and assistt in caring for the

sick islanders but Father Rioux
was unable to entice a doctor to
the island. At the present time
the settlement hospital has a
French Missionary doctor, two
Swiss Nuns vs nurses (at a salary
of $10 a month), one psychologist
and one obstetrician.
The French Priest added that
90 per cent of the population on
the Island had been suffering
with yaws or other tropical di-
seases but with the assistance of
SCISP most of the diseases had
been wiped out, as have mosqui-
toes and other annoying cbetes.'

later became the governor of Ja-

A native of Les Cayes, Ducilia .

working lady who came to the -p

they took at the end of every

of her trade buys the coconuts
for two cents and sells them over

these fruits, she puts them in a
flat open box made of flat board
which she places over her head
with twenty or thirty coconuts;
l-2tween the box and her head

folded up) which makes her feel
the weight a little lighter and
she always take along with her
a'sharped big knife which she uses
for making holes in the coconuts.
She goes to her supplier and

Practically, there are two dif-

Filled with enthusiasm. and
1 burning with devotion, Brother
famaliel never rested from the
fatigues of his scholastic year
nor availed himself of a well-ea-

P self to his choral group.
V" Under his direction the sonorous and clear voices. (voix de tkte) of
Petit-GoAve (L'art merchant de pair avec la bonne volontk) assures
a perfect execution of the mass of the assumption and soothes the
assistance by the sweet melodies and the polyphonic sounds even to
the complete shtiifaction of the most zealous, Reverend Father Lam-
balais... of regretted memory.
A passionate devotee of religious harmony, a poet, and a musician,
in the enchanted setting of oar primary school peacefully reposedl
under the shade of the Mango and Quinepe trees, 'Gama: listens to
the soothing chords of the rubbing branches and the subtle voices of
the winds as they whistle softly through the trees.
At dawn he writes his symphony: N,
Qwznd du Zdphlr le doux passage
Rveille V'oan et le gazon
Et que le temps de l'hipernage
De notre sol fuit rlhorizon...

Filled with varied emotions when in contact with nature he sings
forth nature.
Le potage produit la cive
AManioc patate.et mirliton
Le calalou qui nous active
La banana et le girazmon I
Cresson, betterave et carotte
Igname, tayo, pots et iiz
Le thym, le piment, l'echalote
Si fort goW6t dans le pays.

. He disseminated music widely considering it to be a joyous com-
panion of life pnd ends his pastoral by a hymn of thankfulness to the
toilers of the soil...
Pour Vhotmme su la terre
SRien de plus enchanteur
Que l'art d'agriculteur
/ Au jour de L 'innocence
Et. de la jouissance
Le chef du genre humnain
Ciutivait son 'ardin.

This symphonic poem, union of a poetic mind sang on the occa-
sion of the .Agriculture Day Celebrations,..., at a period when we
were but seven still is clear in our memory and we surprise ourselves


after 36 years still humming it enchantedly.
In 1926 he was transferred to St. Louis de Gonzague where with
delight he meets once more 'his colony of Petit Goave.
. Let us, as Brother Barthelemy would wont to say, 'note the follow-
ing dynasties' (of Dambreville, D6vieux, Leger, Basile, Rigaud, Ca-
meau, Ostin6, Bernadotte), Siclait, Jean-Louis, St.' Julien, Lemaine,
Charles, Saieh, Noustas, Arnoux, St. Julien, Blaise, Fabien, Handal,
Nicolas, Dascy, Reed, Merentier...
Instantly the 'Gama. de Petit GoAve is rechristened L'Ami de~St.
Louis de Gonzague (In charge of the Internes of the College St. Louis).
His noble character, the force of his convictions, the sacrifice of his
person, his goodness and enthusiasm, there are the qualities that all
those wlo came in contact with him immediately recognized.
I said his noble character. Yes, it is the nobleness of his character
sparked by the greatness of his talent which gives honor to his com-
munity and evokes the concert of regret which arises with his passing.
Brother Gamaliel has left us. He has left without fanfare. But his
memory lives on and shall live on always in the minds and in the
hearts of all his former pupils.

S U N D A Y, MAY 13th 1956

The colossal mango season from April to September is nat-
ure's greatest gift to the people of Haiti, and proves the truth
of their maxim that Bon Dieun is really hbonu. Like manna'
'-from heaven, this exotic tropical fruit steps in to relieve the
pressure on the budget of National Economy for six months
when the vitamin-packed mangoes of a dozen varieties flood
the four corners of the Republic to flatter the palates of the
rich and to serve as the basis of nourishment for the populace.
The pangs of hunger disappear from even the poorest and
the neediest.

The loaded tables in the mar-
ketplaces throughout the coun-
try, and the bacques of the
little cmarchandesp furnish more
than is needed as low as three
mangoes for 2 cents, depending
on the variety and size.
The only people on our happy
Island who suffer fcm the man-
go season are the bakers. For
them it Is the dead season. Bread
consumption drops 33-1/3% at
the height of the season.
In early times it was during
the season of the mango that a
revolution could be expected,Jor
a General could feed his army on
the march with the juicy vitami-
ned fruit of the mango from the
massive green trees which enrich
'the countryside.
SIn the north of Haiti the varie-
ty known as Mangue fil blanco
(Mango white thread) brings
fame to Cap-Haitien. The cMango
Madame Francis, (commonly cal-
led by the people *Mango Fran-
cique) originated on the vast
private domaline of a peasant wd-
man, Mrs. FrancisD at Gros Mor-
ne .(a small oprincipalitez of Go-
naives). The cMango Corne co-
mes from the region of Mia-oa-

of the southern peninsular is
used to fatten hogs by the Jere-
miens because of the non-edibili--
ty of the fruit due to worms.
Other mangoes are: eMango
Bweuf., a huge4corse-grained
meaty fruit; :Mango Prunev. and
'Mango Canelle-, this latter with
the spicy twang of cinamon.

Large trucks load millions of
mango fils blanecss in the North
and alMango Madame Francis *

duce to the Gonaives Bay where
it is transhipped to little avoi-
liers) (sailboats) for exportation.


in abundance.
Of the big harvest of mangoes
in this country, only about half
is eventually eaten, many are
simply wasted, and ruined by
bruising and rough handling. Fal-
ling from the loaded trees to the
ground, after nightfall, huge
quantities are devoured by erring
What should be done about


Large quantities of this fruit
find its way 'to the mountains of
Grand Ture and the lesser Baha-
mas Islands.
Haitian mangoes are consum-
ed as a fruit, and tourists are
served fruit salads of an exotic
and agreeable flavor in the va-
rious hotels and rest rooms. De-
licious ice cream is made from
the pulp and juice of the Mango
Francis. From green mangoes, a
local American housewife turned
out delicious pastry, using an
apple piq recipe. Delicious chut-
ney or econfiture is another pre-
paration to please the palate.
Although in Haiti, the price of
mango never exceeds a few
cents, in the North American
market, a 'gourmnand will have
to buy one for something lite
$1:00. In Haiti, Bon Dieu 'est
Bon!a and we ought to 'give
to, buy one for something like
land with this manna-like food,
'rich in vitamins and overflowi1g

    On the occasion of the 130th
    anniversary of the founding of
    the Congress of Panama in 1826
    by Simon Bolivar, liberator 'of
    South America and national hero
    of Bolivia, a meeting will be held
    in Panama City, Panama, June
    25-26, of Latin American chief

    President Ricardo' M. Arias Es-
    pinosa of Panama invited Presi-
    dent Eisenhower, along with the
    other chief executives of Ameri-
    can Republics, to attend the 1two
    day meeting. President Eisenho-
    wer stated that it would be an
    &excellent idea%. for him to at-
    tend but the fact that the United
    States Congress may be winding
    up its work at that time may
    make the trip impossible.
    BoUlvar came to Haiti on two
    memorable occasions. During the
    first visit he was given shelter as
    a refugee,.after having lost A de-
    cisive battle against the Spanish
    in Venezuela and received hospi-
    tality and encouragement from
    President Alexandre Petion.
    His second trip preceded his
    fidal and historic victory, to
    which Petion contributed money,
    ammunition, a printing press and
    MHaiffan volunteers enabling the

    great Liberator to throw off the
    Spanish yoke and force them
    from South America.
    After receiving Haiti's aid in
    his fight. Bolivar promised Pe-
    tion that he would write the na-
    me of Haiti into the history of
    his country, Venezuela, as his be-
    nefactor. Petion modestly request
    ed that no mention be made of
    the help h; was giving, but ask-
    ed Bolivar to promise that he
    would abolish slavery in every
    one of the countries from which
    he chased the Spanish .
    Bolivar made the promise to
    free the slaves in the freed coun-
    tries and kept that promise.
    Has Haiti's Chief Executive
    been invited to the historic meet-

    The St. Louis de Gonzague Ho-
    mecoming Day was celebrated
    Sunday with a mass in the school
    chapel, presided over by Arch
    Bishop Francois Poirier. Reverend
    Father Delva gave the Home-
    coming Day Sermon.
    A General Assembly was held
    at 10:00 a.m., followed by the tra-
    ditional banquet for the alumni.

    f The condition of the telephone, invented by a character from 'J-
    :r.Aie with due respect to claims from behind the Iron .Crtain, has
    e. caed in recent years strife of all description here in Haiti. The un-
    i workable telephone of Port au Prince has even. been put down as the
    n n"bmhsr nna anotive in a murder case.

    ." Recently a man was
    ":. . .. . -- hauled into court In
    the U.S. for shtin
    dead .o motorist who
    She saoid, hon ed his
    horn, once to often in
    passing his home. To-
    da, in Haiti there is
    a cold war going an
    between numb e r s.
    One lady subscriber a-
    Swoke to read the mor
    V ning paper and disco-
    Svered that a neigh-
    bor was advertising
    new workable teleph-
    one number it was
    Her line had been given to an Ambassador'. One reason that
    LtE.ere is no need for a newspaper in Haiti and that news spreads like
    a bush fire is because wires are frequently crossed and one can listen
    to the most secret conversation just by, lifting up the receiver.
    iThe Haitikn roads: are being dug up to make way for the telephone
    system When this -underground system finally is well buried the pow-
    e lines will probably go low underground and the streets, such as
    t" t he ,Gand'Rue, will always resenmb]e London in the midst of the
    .j'.nt .oiie suggestion comes from a fair lady who went stark raving
    ...n. thisfek emd tossed her telephoneinto a' -nearby ravine is that.
    :W'h"s cotitry .(aiti) which was the first tile world to have a dial
    system, goes deiper- into this thing and g~ts 4me kind of electronic

    - D Sun, salutes the passing of a great bird. We received news
    his week of the tragic leath of the -peacock who patronized the Shan-
    Sgo ;Night/Ciub; This will bring sorrow to numerous friends of this bird
    .-throughout the world, the Hermans of Milwaukee, Ti-Sam-Sam of New
    S;York, Jpohnsons of Chicago, the Jones of California, etc.

    '. If Haiti had a Hall of Fame this bird would deserve a special niche
    'm it:. -

    Owner Robert Baussan gave us
    the cold facts; the gorgeous peaw
    cock which climbed nightly a
    high tree that brought it into a

    parking position opposite the
    floor of Shango, had eaten poi-
    son set out for rats. This much
    we are assured of, when laid to
    rest its beautiful Tarlatane was
    Horace Sutton would write ab-
    Sout it if he were here and the
    AP Wire would have spread the
    sas news around the world, but when
    : i Robert Baussan brokeo the news
    this week the bird had already
    'been dead a month.

    .One consolation is that the word has spread around Port au Prince
    ,and a habitant, of Bourdon has suggested that Ibo Lele entice one
    of five peacocks away from day and night-commuting between the
    -, q erican Embassy residence in Bourdon and Gras Moine. These five
    ,/ppea0ocks cry like cats end honk like heavy 'camions, on a dangerous
    i.ibe.d, re, also gifted tree climbers. But it is certain that non of these
    wiU ever replace the Meringue-loving Shango patron.

    Was your last outing cut short?
    You'd have liked to loll much longer on thq beach
    or on the deck of your little bogt, listening to the slapping
    waves and watching the- billowing clouds roll over the amethyst,
    mountains and float away in the blue sky. ,
    You'd have liked to see the sunset. .

    One hard-boiled eggs and rnangos you'd snatched .up
    in a hurry that morning had long since been consumed.
    So home you went.

    Electricity Rationing

    Following an unexpected fai-
    lure of one of its generating
    units, the Compagnie d'Elairage
    Electrique de Port-au-Prince kind
    ly requests its amiable customers
    to disconnect their refrigeration
    Equipment and other electrical
    appliances during the period of
    the peak load which occurs from
    6 p.m.- to 9 p.m. e.-h evening,
    Sunday excepted. Such appara-
    tus tends to overload the capaci-
    ty of the power plant. The Com-
    pany will appreciate it greatly,
    if its customers will turn on only
    the lighting equipment which is
    strictly essential during such
    peak load period mentioned
    above. It is also in the interest of
    each customer to disconnect the
    electricity to the water heater
    during the peak load period agd
    it would be vdry helpful if the
    electric range is not used bet-
    ween the hours of 7 and 9 o'clock.

    All industries are kindly re-
    quested to stop their motor equip
    meat during the peakload period
    mentioned above.
    The Company finds itself obli-
    gated to suspend each evening
    .for an indeterminate length of
    time, the lights of the streets of
    Port-au-Prince and Petionville ex-
    cepting only those street' lights
    which are controlled by photo-
    electric cells.
    It is'very likely that beginning
    on the date of the publication of
    this notice and continuing until
    further notice, the following dis-
    tribution circuits will be deprived
    of electrical energy in accordan-
    ce with the following schedule:
    From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

    tion of feeder

    In case the overload on the
    power plant persists qach even-
    ng, the electrical energy will be
    suspended onft the Petionville cir-
    cuit beginning at 8'clock in the
    evening. Such suspension can
    last for approximately 3A of an
    hour. The Petion-Ville circuit sup-
    plies electricity along the Pe-
    Lionville road, in Petionville, Fr-
    res, Morne l'Hopital, Boutiliers,
    La Boule and Kenscoff.
    The Electric Company regrets
    that it becomes necessary to
    adopt the above measures but as-
    sures Aits customers that every
    precaution will'be taken so that
    any suspension of electrical ener-
    gy because of the need for ra-
    tioning electricity, will be reduc-
    ed to a minimum period.
