Puerto Rican Sugar Mill Here

To Be Erected In Cul de Sac
A complete sugar mill, with a 1,000 ton per day grinding
capacity, arrived from Ponce, Puerto Rico, Friday at 6:00 p.
.in. on the motor vessel William G. Osment and the barge
Atlantis.
The sugar mill, which was purchased by the Haytian Sugar
Refinery Company S. A., is being unloaded this weekend at
the Compania Maritimas maintenance yard at La Saline and
being ttucked-immediately to the erection site in the Cul de
Sac near Ganthier:


Owing to bad weather the
mountain of material took 5
days to make the sea voyage
to H~iti. The Atlantis is bone
of the largest barges in the
Caribbean.

The erection of this sugar
mill will soon reflect itself on
the economy of the area, in
which it is being built, and
will place a great deal of land
under cane cultivation. A
spokesman stressed that it
will directly benefit many
people on the Plain as 'far as

ATTACKING "BENEFACTOR"


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC RUN
"AS A FEUDAL TYRANNY
GALINDEZ SAYS

By Milton BRACKET

The forthcoming book by the
missing scholar Dr. Jesus de Ga-
lindez is a scathing denuncia-
'lion of the Trujillo regime in
the Dominian Republic.
SDr. Galindez, Spanish-Basque
:lecturer at Columbia University,
disappeared on March 12. The
Spanish edition of his work is
being prepared for publication
in Santiago, Chile.

Its central conclusions are:
For more than a quarter cen--
tury, the Caribbean nation of
more than 2300.000 population
has been the personal fief of
Generalisimo Rafael Leonidas
TrujUlo Molina.
General Trujitlo is responsible
for more than 140 political as-
sassinations since he took power
in 1930. The book charges that


hie has based his own- authority
on the Army, but has kept any
other officer from building up a

500 SUFFER
FROM RAIN IN
PETIT GOAVE

Heavy rain storms and accompa-
nying floods, hit Petit-Goave and
the surrounding area on the night
of May 19 and 500 homeless fa-
milies are being cared for by the
Wesleyan Methodist Church, the
oSun learned this week from Pas-
tor Marco Dpestre.
The dLa Digue,, 'Bas Tapion,
and -Caiman, rivers were chang-
ed from peaceful flowing streams
to raging torrents by the heavy
rainfall that started at four in the
afternoon of May 19 and lasted
until around one o'clock- in the
morning of May 20. The Caiman
River inundated Ti-Guinee, the
lower section of the town, and the
people had to abandon their hom-
es to save their lives. The other
rivers flooded the Bas-Tapion,
Fond-Fabre, La Digue, and Morne
Soldat sections, according to Re-
verend D6pestre, a Damien Agron-
omist prior to entering the service
of the Methodist Church.
One woman was swept away by
the flood and drowned. Her body
was discovered later. The water,

some areas, swept away plantat-

The seven mile per hour sway-
ming peak Fn peak telpherage
journey, taking only three
hours, will mean a saving of
time and money in Haiti's big-
gest lumber enterprise.
Completion for the telphera-
ge is scheduled for early July
and plans are in the making at
the Banque Agricole to develop
the Mare Rouge site into a com-
plete logging camp and saw
mill. At a cost of roughly $400,
000, the approximate cost of a
heavy duty road, the overhead
cable car system is expected to
pay for itself in six years. The
telpherages 56 cable cars, each
capable of handling 700 kilos of
Pine Forest lumber, require no
maintenance and the entire
system, is guaranteed for 25
years. Trucks making the trip
would require heavy mainte-
nance expenses and have to pay
the high costs of gas and oil.
Roads also would require regul-
ar upkeep.

Construction of the telphera-
ge is under the supervision of

ers to 26, on the recommenda-
tions of ex-minister of Finance

WHERE IS MISS HAITI?'


A cable enquiry from the U. S.
this week asked the name and ad-
dress of the eeeted contestant to
represent Haiti at the Miss Uni-
verse contest in Long Beach, Ca-
lifornia, next July. This informa-
tion was re.ouh-ed, it stated, for
United States promotional pur-
poses. '
The reply cable to New York
was regretfully short and to the
point. -There is no official Miss

Herewith is the biography of
Ramfis as compiled by Dr Ga-
lindez:

He was born in 1929 when his
mother was married to a Cuban
who refused to recognize him as
his son. Subsequently, General
Trujillo recognized him 'as a
son. He appointed the boy ia
1933,-at the age of 4-to a co-
lonelcy in the Army. In 1935 the
General married the mother.
When the boy was 9, he was
apromotedv to brigadier gener-
al. However, in 1943, he resign-
ed his raik on the ground of
youth and entered the services
as a cadet. Six years rater he
was a captain, studying law, and
at the year's end, was appoint-
ed an inspector of dtpibnmatfc
missions with the rank of Am-
bassador. He was their 20'.
He became an. honorary lieu- i
tenant colonel in 1951, a colonel
in 1952, a brigadier general the

How He Keeps Pow'rt
The second part of the book
is devoted to an analysis of how
General Trujillo has held pow-
er.

One key ietfinique. according
to the author. is to maintain the
.Army as the backbone of
strength-but to keep shifting
high officers around to prevent
any one from getting too influ-
ential in his own riglt.

The book tells of tw destruc-
tion of all parties but the dicta-
lor's own. It gives a detailed ac-
count of how General Trujillo
offered legalfly to the Comr,.
nists, then attacked and out-
lawed them. According to Dr.
Galindez, iulis was so that he
might present the Commintstp.

PRODUCTION OR SURE DEATH
With the torrential seasonal rains sweeping the rich top
soil of Haiti out to sea, at this time of the year, it is illustrat-
Ion enough that trees and only trees can hold the Republic
of Haiti together.
The tradition of Arbor Day. began in Haiti eighteen years
a g o when f o r m e r President Stdnio Vincent's Government
sponsored its Campaign de Reboisement, culminating in
?, the historic Haiti's trees and forests had reached a crucial point, with the
peasants indiscriminately cutting down and destroying trees
everywhere to feed their charcoal industry. President Vin-
cent became alarmed at the decrease in the tree population
of the country and the resulting state of erosion that threaten-
ed national agricultural production. The torrential tropical
storms during the rainy season left only rocks as the fertile
top soil was washed down the slopes on its way to the sea
The country's meager water supply was menaced as the
springs dried up.
The President summed up the problem: aOur land which
is not at its first stage of virginity, which has already lived
an intense colonial life and has for a long time been resting
on its laurels of an unfortunate legend of exceptional ferti-
lity, is singularly impoverished. Man's instinct, naturally tar-
nished, and a lack of care has placed it in a most deplorable
state. But all is not lost, and in many, places there is still
vast fresh land which it will suffice to exploit seriously in
order that riches may spring up. But our land can be cured
of its malady, and saved only by special organization of cre-
dit, by farm tools, irrigation, drainage and replanting of our
trees and forests, technical care which alone-may renew its
productivity and establish it on a more secure and rational
basis.
((It is with the transformation of man by education, and
the land by the assiduous care which it requires, that the pea-
c" eful 6xistence of the Nation will be guaranteed. To produce,
we have everything. Our forefathers said: Liberty or Death).
Today, we say Production or sure Death), and we cannot
repeat it enough.


Stating that he was personal-
ly alarmed by the spectacle of
misery and ruin which he had
encountered' on his trips
throughout the Republic, Presi-
dent Vincent resolved 'to under-
take urgent measures for the
saving of the country, and said:
*This cannot fail to alarm all
those who are interested in the
future of this country.*
On June 23, 1937, the Covern-
ment issued a Decree formally
forbidding the cutting of trees
on the slopes and mountains, un-
der penalty of prosecution, also
forbidding the annual cultiva-
tion on this land, without pre-
vious authorization by the au-
thorities.
An edurca.tion program, hear-
tily supported by the local press
was then undertaken. Lectures
and courses on the respect and
utility of frees was sponsored
by the Government. In the
schools, contests were organized
.and prizes awarded in order to
stimulate interest in the new
movement in favor of our trees.
No stone wias left unturned to
capture the national spirit of
the people in support of the
tree-protection programme.
President Vincentts famous
d(Message to .Haitian Schoolchil-
dren was issued on July 1, 1937:
lHave you often asked your-
self what is the utility of the,
trees which you see all around
you? Have you ever thought of
what would happen if all these
trees should disappear?
These trees of which several
furnish you savory fruits, and
products such as coffee, cotton,
cocoa, bananas, coconuts, etc.-
and which constitute the only
wealth of our country, and
which by the way, we are not
Producing in sufficient quanti-
ties, these trees which also
furnish us wood for our houses,
wood for our furniture, for our
canoes, our sailboats, our wheel-
barrows, and many other utili-
ties play still a more impor-
tant role ia our lives.
Do you think you could live,
for example, being unable to
S quench. your thirst? Without
. ever washing yourself? Do you


know that it is the trees that
guarantee conservation of our
springs? When it rains, if thee
were no trees, the water would
immediately run the length of
the steep inclines and go rush-
ing to the sea, leaving huge cre-
vasses everywhere. But thanks
to the leaves and roots of the
trees, this water is stopped,'
held'in the soil, feeding and pu-
rifying the fresh crystal water
of our springs so necessary to
our lives.)
The water also carries away
with it the good top soil which
our plants, need to give us our
daily bread, to make us grow.
Sometimes the impetuous tor-
rents catch up children, animals
and even destroy our homes in
'its wake.
Trees are also useful for giv
ing shade to protect us against
the ardor of the sun. Trees also
Influence atmospheric condi-
tions. They regulate the rain-
falL In the country regions
where irrigation is not possible,
the rain is useful during a pro-
longed drought period that can
ruin a crop.
It has been found that in
many regions of the Republic,
the mount-fin crests and slopes
have been completely denuded
because of the ignorance and
indifference of the inhabitants.
Such a situation is very serious.
Your future, men and women
of tomorrow, is seriously threat-
ened. What will become of you
if this is not stopped, if we do
not take the necessary measures
to repair the damage that has
been done? We must change our
attitude of indifference with re-
gard to our trees. We must love
and protect these friends which
are at the same time our bene-
factors. ..
This love of trees, notably
within yourself, must be active.
That is wvhy ydur President is
asking you to form a vast orga-
nization of Friends of the
Treess, which will be composed
of all the youth of the schools,
boys and girls. It will not only
protect against destruction of
the existing trees, it will also
be for the purpose of increasing
the number of our trees; to

.L itf you -really
g want to bec-
.ome acquain-
ted with Hai-
ti there are
Many intere-
tsting trips
which afford
Ta close-up of
A -, 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-
biles, others require the more
versatile jeep to navigate the
rough spots and river crossings.
All of them can be made in a-
fety.


There is a' Hertz-Drive-it
Yourself Agency in town where
you can rent a car or a jeep at
reasonable rate; or you .. can
rent ears., with or without
chauffers, elsewhere. The Hat-
tian Air Force provides safe
and efficient air transport to
most important points in Haiti
at very reasonmnable 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


TM vEt SuOC03 1551


(for which 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 sprayed from the bar
since you left... And, of course,
you will have a good reserve of
coonversationel ammunition to
last you for many months.
So, starting with the shortest
trips first, here are a few boiled
down suggestions for travel in
Haiti:

BOUTILLIERS. MOUNTAIN
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, 1sun-
light and shadow! Port-au-Prin-
ce lies at your feet (3.00 9 feet
below) like a giait map. To ket
to this breath-taking, unbelie-
eable,ad unforgettale view
)u ride 10 miles fom nPort-au-
Prince, throu94h the pretty little


'own of Petionville, then up a
winding mountain ro6a, boirde-
red by flamirin iantt i6intsetta
plants. You pass 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-HAITmEN.
AND LA CITADELLE
This trij is an experience in
histpry and 4hy,. it is an
adventure and a pilgrimage
which you must not msv.







If youhye the tim w re-
comnend that you take three
days and Ai6 to C^-H.ai'tien ,
car. Its about i170,mles an4, a
minimum pf gr 6, hours, but
you s.ouid take abput 8 hours
to enjoy it most. So to pne of.
Cap Haitien's'confiprtable 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 yn i,. r,:' sed for lime,
you can fly to the Cape ir, 45
minutes, and can make the nr-,
tire pilgrimage in a single d&,y.

'vA UMeoliTTARLE EXPERiEN


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
worZd can offer a more enticing
blend of these two elements
than Le Perchoir, Haiti's'nar-
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 ,b
curving bayshore is outliied 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
Souffl6, Le Perchoir food is
superbly prepared and elegant-
ly served. Flix Guignard and
his orchestra provides music for
dancing.
The International Casino, a
swank establishment runi by a
staff imported from Mgnte-
Cario, is one of the major
points of interest during the
summer and winter tourist sea
sons. There one can dine on
excellent Italian food end later
visit te" *gaming -tables which
are meticulously run under the
supervision ,aof the Haitian Go-
vernmnent. On the bay side,
an orchestra beats out rhum-
bas, mambos and romantic Hai-
tian meringues for dancing un-
der the twinkling stars.

SNear 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
'lichel Desgrottes tri-lin-
*"al crooning and a nightly
Inn show The white-faced Ban-
a dancer is Minsky's in rever-
-'?. 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 Tloupe 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
thrdb with.be rhythm of the
Haitian Meringue, a dance so
simple that visitors need spend
no time on the side 'lines just
looking on. Though Ahis 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-
sant cbamboches or non-reli-
gious daiices held in open dton-
nelles* to the pulsing beat of
the voodoo drums. It's an UN-
FORGE=TABLE experience.

Dear Mary,
Although I know your letter
published last week is not aimed
at me, there has been disastrous
results:
You suggested that Miss "Vic-
tim of Tourismo go along with
her boy friend on his Saturday
night outings with the Tourist
Trade.
Now, my girl Insists upon going
with me in a sense of self-sacrifice
Please, get me out of this. I love
my girl friend but must dance
with and entertain the visiting
tourists. "It is all part of my job.
The work is not easy.' As the
young lady's letter stated, Jew
of these tourists are young and
beautiful but we guides must
keep them happy. After a hard
days work it is tough to be forc-
ed to dance all night.
With my girl friend at my side
casting jealous eyes in my direc-
tion, my value as a tourist guide
is seriously impaired.
And, I do not want to enter the
coffee, sugar, sisal or any other
business.
How can I get out of this. You
caused the trouble and now what
can I do to get my girl back in
the home where she belongs.
A Tourist Trade Guide
Dear Tourist Guide,
You should be thoroughly ash-
amed of yo'rsei. You do not de-
serve a nice girl friend.
I am beginning to suspect that
you enjoy the company of these


%unattractive women.)) Many of
them are undoubtedly beautiful
and you find that taking your
sweetheart along hampers your
clandestine activities.
I sincerely hope that your girl

CONSUL IN NEW YORK
RETORTS
(Continued from page 2)
Dominican Official Criticizes the
Publication of Story


Informed of the gist of the
Galindez manuscript, the Domin-
ican Consul General. Arturo R.
Espaillat, issued the following
statement last night:
cMr. Galindez, a Basque polit-
ical refugee found a haven in
the Dominican Republic under
Trujillo. At the time it was a
great country and a great gov-
ernment for him. The Govern-
ment gave him refuge, protec-
tion and even a job. I
eSubsequently, Mr. Galindez
found it more profitable to turn
against the people who protect-
ed him in his hour of need. The
writings of such a man should be
looked upon keeping this back-
.ground in mind.

&There were times when he
also thought it convenient to de-
fend Arbenz' Communist Gua-
temalan Government and criti-
cize the United .States policy on
that matter. The New York
Times should also publish these
articles, they are readily avai-
lable. (Jacobo Arbenz Guzman is
a former President of Guatema-
la.)
cUnfortunately, by the fact of
being missing the man has at-
tained a stature far out of pro-
portion to reality, and were he
to appear he would soon be back
to peddling his columns to the
local .Spanish newspapers.
eThe publication by The New
York Times of the article based
on the Galindez manuscript is


but another step in the anti-
Trujillo campaign of that news-
paper.
,A short time ago, The Times
was deploring the fact that no
one wanted to publish the Ga-
lindez manuscript because, dur-
ing his disappearance, no one
could grant the legal authority
to publish the work. Evidently
The Times has chosen to take
the bit in its own teeth, and to
let others worry about the legal-
ity of publication. The depth of
The Times' anti-Trujillo feel-
ings can be gauged by the risks
*it is. willing to assume.
eUndoubtedly, this story will
be the signal for a new series of
public outcries against the Do-
miinican Republic, by the small
hut vociferous band of malcon-
tentr expatriates in this country.
The American public should not
lose sight of the fact that so far
there has not been the slightest
evidence to connect the Domin-
ican Republic with the disappear-
ance Which has been skillfully
exploited by the anti-Trujillo
forces as if it had been prear-
ranged for that purpose.
#The United States may be
sitting over a keg of explosives
in the Caribbean area and with
the unpredictability of situa-
tions in the Caribbean it isn't
hard to understand why Commu
nists would want to disrupt the
unreserved support of Genera-
lissimo Trujillo toward the
United States.,
