eagerly began the career which
Is after all the most satisfactory
to which a woman can aspire -
that of raising her children and
at the same time proving a pre-
cious collaborator for the efforts
of her husband to form and edu-
cate them. Tne second boy, Rene,
and a third Yves appeared to
form a turbulent trio with Pier-
re. Soon a little sister, Simone,
arrived tj cause competition
among the little men of the
household each claiming priori-
ty in protecting the precious
bundle, When Lucien, Paul, ad
Michel joined the family they
were kept waiting five years for
the, arrival of little Philippe. Cla-
moring for another little sister,
the boys were rewarded when
baby Marie-Rose brought the De-
jean clan 'ip to nine.
Meanwhile, the gentle mother
had established a principle in her
home, although she kept a numb-
er of servants, never once did she
confer one of her little ones to
the care of a nurse. She conse-
crated herself to caring for them,
personally, and took joy in the
multiple tasks which absorbed her
in filling the needs of her large
family. She flatly refused to leave
the children, and perferred to sa-
crifice the trips abroad that her
husband's situation could afford
her while the seven boys and two
girls were growing up.
Excelling in the art of being
a mother, the perfect wife,, and
practical nurse, she weathered
the difficult, days, remaining com-
petent and cool in the face of ill-
uess, tirelessly administering
their wants and comforts, and lo-
ving them the more for it.
A fervent Catholic, Mrs. Dejean
took her children to church regu-
larly. athrd procured for them the
spiritual guidance necessary to
their formation. The long years of
schooling and its problems pass-
ed agreeably in the Dejean house-
hold, and with her husband, Ma-
ria followed their children's stu-
dies closely. They wanted each
child to develop its individual per-

children home when they might

quick understanding and wisdom,
her firm. hold in their lives gave
them confidence in the future and
in themselves. She was -their idol
and their home was a shrine. The
Dejean youngsters wanted to
make her proud of them.
Today, the silver-hair cropped'
close, the eyes sparkling with
pride, the beauty has not faded
from the person of Maria Parisot.
Dejean, after thirty-three years of
marriage and nine children rang-
ing in age from 30 to 15. robust
in health, the years have taken
little from her physical and mo-
ral well-being. She takes pride in
her daughter-in-law, Anne-Marie
Tribie who is Pierre's wife. The
church and the nation bless her
for giving two of her sons to pri-
esthood. Yves 28 and Paul 25 are
valued members of the Order of
Oblats, at Port-Salut and at Camp-
Perrin, respectively. Pierre 30 and
Rene. 29 hold enviable places in
the ranks of the Capital's busi-
ness lions. Simone is the charming
young collaborator in the firm
of Rene and Roger Armand, Lu-
cien at 26 is carving out a career
in the Fiscal Department of Ban-

At the age of 23, Michel has
already established himself among
the country's finest musicians. A
pianist and composer of 'mark,
he has, in a few short years, or-
ganized his friends into a local
choir of such powerful propor-
tions that he is winning fame. for
Haiti abroad, and is considered
one of the country's leading tou-
ristic attractions. The Michel De-

attention from the leading music

On this day dedicated to mo-
thers, Mrs. Montrosier Dejean who
has always placed the education
of her children and the fireside
of the home above all else, will
be honored with two young future
prelates of the Catholic Church, a
future star in international music
circles, two future scions of the
country's business world heading
the happy group of children who
gather in the familiar surround-
ingb of the Ruelle Jeanty Villa to
try to express their gratitude. The
nation may well be proud of Ma-
ria Parisot-Dejean as it pays ho-
mage to its mothers today. She is
a symbol of Haitian motherhood!

G ER.ANT.RESPONSABLE PAIUL E. NAJAC
ISOLATED BY IHE-'S OF BOCK AND
I-GH WATER BiZ(YlONIAN. PLEA!
If your heard a cry of Help* this week it didn't come from
a politician or a citizen caught in the telephone cable trench
.along with the mud. The cry came loud and clear from the
people who inhabit the island south of the Capital and com-
muters by way of the Bizoton road.
They plead &we have no road when it rains! The water
gushes down the hills dragging rocks and silt which is duely
cleared amay the same evening or the following day depend-
ing on the rain and the quantity of rock and earth it brings
down. Suggest the good citizens, whom you can now distin-
guish by the way they run for home at the least provocation
Trees are the answer for keeping the hills where they be-
long and not allowing them to slip down to sea via the Bizoton
Road but cannot the Public Works Department devise a
plan of canalization. It would save the road repair bill, the
shrinking mountains and bring peace and security to the
folks of the area.
We want to point out to the Senatorial commission in
charge of thp study of the law project regulating hunting in
Haiti .- the current paretice of setting traps for wild guinea-
hems in the regions of Port-i-Piment dui Nord, Sources Chau-
des, Plaine de I'Arbre and Anse Rouge.
This method of trapping these birds is very simple. During
the chicken corn season the boys build ealoges in a garden
and sow grains of corn in front of the door to attract these
birds. Holding a rope, attached to the door of the ucaloge*,
they hide themselves and wait for the guinea-hens. When a
group of guinea-hens arrive and enter the acalogeN they have
only Co pull the rope to imprison hundreds.
Therefore it is a method of capturing abundant guinea-
hens and a means of exterminating guinea-hens in the regi-
ons. These birds attract, many hunters from the capital and
neighboring cities and now is the time to stop this practice
in the interest of our tourism.

Dear Mir. Diederich,
I have noticed several incor-

ence to Haiti's telephone system.
The U.S. Marines did not ins-
tall Haiti's telephones. Civilian
technicians did this work under
the direction of the Haitian pu-
blic works. I was here at the time'-
and recall thils quite clearly.
Also you mention that it was
the first installation of this type
in Ehe world. These type of atto-
matic telephones were in use in
the United States and several
other countries for many years
before being installed in Haiti.
Just thought I would straigh-

Dear Mr. Diederich,
A suggestion was recently
made to President Batista, of Cu-
ba, by the National Collegium
of Teachers of Design, Paintingi
and Sculpture that would defi-
nately be a boost for Haitian
art and artists if followed up
The idea is for the government
to devote three per-cent (or even
less here in Haiti) of the value
of all public buildings towards
their artistic decoration.
This would mean a lot to your
artists and the expense could
be overcome by doing a little at
a time. Local businesses should
be made to carry out the same

NO TIME TO WORK
Statistics show that for every.
three days of work in Haiti there
is one day of rest.
The facts show: 28 holidays
per year, 52 Sundays and 15 days
of paid vacation by law, equal 95
days off a year. 365 days per year
with 95 of them vacation days
comes to three days of work and
one day vacation.
The figures grow worse when
you consider that banks close

A strenghtening nourishment
to be found here, especially dur-
ing the corn season, is ,Acassanu,
a kind of nurridge made of corn.
Beside their clients, the corn
planters are the most interesting
people to the enterprising women
who prepare the -Acassann; that
kind of porridge hcs always bern
available all over the country.
The materials needed to pre;
pare it are: an empty five gallon
cooking oil pan in which it is
boiled, corn which the preparers
either buy at the markets or re-
ceive directly from the country,
pieces of wood which they very
often use instead of charcoal, -wat-
er, matches, naturally and a large
mortar in which they beat the corn
after boiling it. The' mortar is
equipped with two pieces of, long
wood with round ends which, is
used for beating the corn.
Noelzina, the former wAcassan
furnisher at a Sunshine. Home s
where your reporter was brought
up is the one he interviewed last
Every afternoon, she puts the
necessary quantity of corn on the
fire and, when it is boiled, puts
it in the mortar, has two of her
assistants beat it and then mixes
it with water and strains it. The
trash is either given to chickens
or thrown away and the water is'
put in clean recipients. In the ear-
ly morning, the water is boiled
until it gets thick (about twenty
minutes) and sometimes vanilla
essence is added to it
for taste to
stove; three stones are placed
one beside the other in such a
way that the pan may be placed
safely on them; between the
stones are placed dry pie-es of
wood in which they. put fire; that
is usually called cdu feu bois
Noelzina prepares four pans
nf ,Acassans every morning,
three of them are sent to her re-
gular clients who own groceries
and the fourth one is kept in
front of her house where neigh-
bours come and buy it. Most of
the corn she uses is sent to her by
nags from Petite Riviere de 'Ar-
tibonite, her 'home town, she
buys corn at the market only
when her people are late in send-
Sng it to her after her stock has
been used. Three girls are em-
- played by her for taking the cA-
cassan to hex clients every mor-
ning, for tarrying it they have,
,ach one, a tbarque (piece of
"lat wood with borders) in which
the pan is placed, between each
girl's head and the cbarque is
a %troquette* (piece of cloth
folded up) which makes them feel
the weight a little lighter and
each girl has her own route. The
cash sales are made to those who
come to Nuelzina's house every
morning 9nd every month she
goes to her clients at their
groceries where she gets paid
for the amo u n t of Acas-
san delivered. Acassan is not
only found at the places
where it is prepared, certain
grocers like Noelzina's regular
clients buy it from the machann
acassani, every morning, stir' it
with milk, put it in twelve
ounce bottles, put the filled bott-
les in refrigerators and sell eauh
bottle for six cents.
There are two different ways
of spelling tAcassanm: the one
which we have been. using in
this story and AXK100N, this last
spelling is the one grocers use
on their sign-board.
Your reporter wanted to find
out from Noelzina, who was call-
ed by that name because she was
born on a Christmas day, what
benefit she gets from that kind
of work but she gave no exact.
anawes to that questionn; she
does not look educated enough
.q as to have a regular account-
ant .:sysfeiti but, as she told him,
the benefit she makes in one
xftpnth is always about the half
of what she usually spends for
the materials 'and the mainte-
nance of the administration and
the reasons for which her clients
prefer her rather than some
other #machann acassansa are

AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pershawh) 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 end 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
Du ride 10 miles frogn Purt su-
Prince, through the pretty little
now of Petionville, then up a
wading mdiontain road, borde-
red-by flaming giahit pointsetta
plants. You paos 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
ever 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-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 Haitien's confortable 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

LAST WEEK I HAD THE FULLEST INTENTION of commenting
further on the Woman's Club's Forum on International Affairs, but a
bug put the slug on me and I took a brief count for a couple of
days. One of the questions discussed was: What are the basic remsont
behind the fact that some of the countries of Latin America have-
authoritarian governments, despite the fact that there is rsch a Herm-
isphere-wide clamor for democratic liberty.-
Juan de Dibs Tejada, scion of an old Spanish family and descendant
of the man who designed the Morro Fortress to protect the Port of
Havana, from -sea marauders, made an eloquent presentation of his
views1 The Havana Post's sugar expert said that the Spaniards who,
came to the New World were inspired by a desire for plunder and
On the other hand, Tejada said, the United States was colonized ori-
- ginally by people seeking a new home. They were not plunderers, but
persons who had been denied religious and other liberties in their home-
lands and sought to establish themselves permanently in North Amer-
ica. That bad been done, for themselves and for their descendants.
One ha' to look to these origins, Tejada contended in order to un-
derstand the psychology of the people of -the Western Hemisphere and
appraise their points of view uwith respect to dictatorships and demn-
It will be recalled, of course, that one of the principal members of

I reminded my distinguished colleagues that prominent among the
names of the great Spaniards who came to the New World were those
of Parraga and Tejada.
Carlos Parraga was at my throat immediately with a fine stiletto.
Recalling nmy British origin, he scid that it was true that the Spani-
ards were perhaps plunderers to some degree, and then, he added.
'The BritisJz, however, did not have the grace to find their own booty
in the New World. They waited until the Spaniards had it loaded
aboard their galleons, opened fire on the vessels and highjacked the
loot. And for their skill in that particular department, some of them
even were knighted.'

That huge baritone now holding
forth at the Casino is Bob Ridge-
ly of West Englewood, New Jer-
Ranging from a low tenor to a
high bass he takes the customers
through a Calypso, replete with-
guitar and a petro-drum, and al-
though he doesn't have the vib-
r.nt sexy movements of Enid Mo-
sier,, his original rhiythmical folk-
singing shows excellent talent.
Bob, traveling throughout the
Caribbean searching for new mu-
sical styles, claims to be the only
rion -West Indian to ever sing
or even enter a Calypso War-.it
takes place in a Calypso tent and
there is no bloodshed. He is after
an illusive drum beat in Haiti to
add to his act.
The broad shouldered New Jer-
sey boy has been on Television in
Cuba many times --Teleniiundo.
His most memorable experience
on Cuban TV was when his photo
was flashed over TV sets as a

ANIMAL FEEDS PROMISE MARKET
FOR HAITIAN SUGAR BI-PRODUCTS
Thorough surveys by the Sugar
Research Foundation of New York,
and subsequently by the United
States Department of Agriculture,
show that the potential market
for sugar, black strap and invert
molasses Ifor animal feedings in
the United States alone is rough-
ly the equivalent of ten thousand
million gallons of blackstrap per
year. This figure is so fantastic-
ally large that one might be in-
clined to doubt it, were it not for
the reliability of-the sources that
Here then, is a new potential
market for Haitian sugar that over-
shadows all others and which is
ready and waiting to be tapped.
Next to it disputes over quota per
centages and worries over internal,
tional sugar agreements are real-
ly small and petty things.
It has been proved that the feed
ing of farm animals can utilize
sugar in refined, raw or mixed
form; blackstrap or final molas-
ses; and invert or high test mol-
asses. As blackstrap iL a by-pro-
duct whose production depends
on the actual amount of crystaliz-
ed sugar produced, it appears lo-
gical to believe that the sugar in-
dustry can find its greatest expan
sion by promoting the wide use
of refined, raw or -green, sugars
and of invert molasses in the vast
potential markets of the farm
and slaughterhouse markets that
today have barely been tapped.
Numerous experiments and act-
ual 'use have proven beyond doubt
that sugar, and its by-products are
healthy for cattle both meat
steers and milk cows. It adds
weight tenderizes the meat, impro
yes the hair, helps to TIDE OVER
BAD DROUGHT PERIODS., When
fed to horses and mules, it impro-
ves the appearance of the animals
and gives a slightly increased ca-
pacity for work. Fed to sheep it
shows similar good results In hogs
it not onTy tends to save a high
per cent of the initial "litter, but
also increase the rate of growth
of the surviving sucklings -and
thus effects a double gain: less
animals are lost between birth and
Et and around, the weaning stage
and the survivors are bigger and
heavier. The feeding of sugar and
invert dr high 'test molasses to
birds (such as chickens and turk-
o,'s) is an accomplished and. prac-
tical procedure and all of the pre-
s.nt studies and large scale expe-
riments show the advantages of
such feeding. Csreful tests in Den-
mark and in the United States
show that the use of sugar in pre-
slaughter rations for cattle and
hogs promotes tenderness and col-
or of meat, improves the appear-
ance and tastiness of the livers
and cuts down the loss or reduct-
ion in weight of carcasses.
Animal feeds is one of the-great
est potential field! for the use of
Haitian sugar, not only in this
country but in the United States.
Now is the time for Haitian sugar
producers to get busy and assists ,
in the opening .up of this' new
market in,. the United States.' Oqr
sugar output is on the increase :,
and this may be.. the-' opportunity .
to dispose of the surplus.
