Every year at this time, from June to October, the general

Almost everyone feels the effects of the aMorte Saisona,
as this period is fittingly called.
Haiti's economy is almost entirely based on agriculture and
the major crops, coffee, cotton and sugar, have been harvest-
ed. Money ceases to circulate as during the harvest months.

line, in protest. He paid. the re-
quired rental fee of $25 for the
use of the auditorium, and add-
ed a new chapter to theater his-
tory in Haiti.
Morlsseau-Leroy, Haitian play-
wright of tAntigone fame, and
outstanding exponents of the
Little Theater movement in Hai-
ti, brought the cast to the city
from his mountain Theater d'Hai
ti and proved that among the
peasant population is to be found
exceptional talent and intelli-
gence, with a capacity to project
the characters they portray, in
spite of the fact that most of
them 'could neither read nor
write.
Immaculee Edouard's perfor-
mance as *Maman Cephie, was
so remarkable that she received
a standing ovation and seven
curtain calls.
PERFECT CASTING
,Miss Edouard, on stage for the
first time rin Leroy's play, came
to the Theater d'Haiti with a na-
tural background, perfect for
her part. The daughter of a pow-
erful voodoo priest, Jean-Gille
Edouard, she has been dancing
around 'alters sinte she 'was two
years old.
The 26-year old mother of
four children was in complete
command of the stage from the
first act- to the grand finale.
Hardly off the stage for more
than a few seconds at a time,
her thin, high-pitched voice
Kept the audience Id alternating
chuckles and intent interest "as
she sang rich voodoo incanta-
tions, executed the difficult Afri-
can tribal dances, rigorously de-
fended the integrity of the cult
and passed the eAcons to her
son (Anatole).

Immaculee Edouard, from the
village of 'Puits Blaip in the
rural section near Freaes, has
never been formally initiated but
considers voodoo a religion of
her community. She holds no
special position in her father's
Hounfort. Immaculee has known
the mystical frenzy of a two-
weeck ceremony, conducted by
her father, and admits to having
been .possessed- on several ot-
casion5 during the rites. She
adds that hie has always kept
iher poise during this oposses-
;ion.-D

repairing it and making it pos-
sible for cars to enter their
neighborhood. After the rainy
season is completed they plan
to continue the improvement of
the road. The Edouard family
is one of the major proponents
of this ecombite.

A CITY* GIRL
Impmaculee went to live with
her grandmother, Sinexine Si-
nean, at the age of 20-months, in
Port-au-Prince. Her grandmoth-
er, a vendor in the market-places
of Petionville and Port-au-Prin-
ce, sent her to the Ecole Sainte
Therese when she reached
school age, but that didn't last
long. In lebs than a year she
dropped out of school and.went
into business. She spent her
childhood in the open-air mar-
kets, selling meat and rice.
She tried sewing for a year
but quit when she didn't make
any progress. She was married
at the age of 19, to Borno La-
france (the chief drummer in
eAnatole and is new referred
to as 'Madame Borno, or Ma-
cuc, among her family and fri-
ends.
The couple are the proud pa-
rents of fuur children (Charite
7, Rodrigue 5, Romania 4, and
Argentine 18 months) and conti-
nue to live at Puits Blain, near
the home' of the Jean-Gille
Edouard family. Imniaculee con-
tinued her market vending work
until two months ago when she
started drying hoods for bakers.
Her brother, -Milo Edouard
(Anatole) has never been initiat-
ed into the voodoo, but a young-
er brother, has been and is con-
sidered tlhe heir to the powers
of their father.
Madame Immaculee Borno
met the Morisseau-Leroy family
when she began bringing canta-
loup, mangos, green corn and
milk to the house. It was from
here that she rose to stardomi
in the Theatre d'Haiti.
A wonderful story teller, she
loves, to sing and between re--
hearsals she loves to act out the
story she :s telling. For Imma-
culee. ,Anatoles was wonderful.
Owing to the importance of her
part she was entitled to a great-
er share of the proceeds of the
play, but refused to accept more
pay than the singers and lesser
actors.
*
HOUNGAN EDOUARD
Her 58-vLc'?r old father. Jean-
Gille ':d0oard, is dedicated to
doing only good deeds as a voo
doo priest as is & Anatole .
The true Hounfort of the Jean-
Gille Edouard family will never
serve an evil care for any
amount of money. Their code is
rjamais servi ac deux mains.3.
(Never buy bad goods.)
Jean-Gille Edouard, whose
career as 2 voodoo priest began
twenty-five years ago, has only
been in possession of the *Acon"
(the calcbacse which holds the
sectet powers of the gods) for
five years. He is known to have
accepted i'. at the <,request of
the gods.x'h This ultimate initia-
tion cost him $140 (700 gourdes)
but as Immaculee states, 4the
investment is well made.*
The Hounfort of Jean-Gille
Edouard consists of six altars at
present, well situated and con-
secrated with galvanized roofing
to add dignity to the construc-
tions, and the tonnels where the ceremonies
are held. The voodoo priest and
his wife R'minis2 Pierre are the
patriarchs of the region, which is
an hour's drive from the Freres
road.
A strong defender of voodoo,
she frequently has religious dis-
cussions with Atheist Morlsseau-


Leroy and Catholic Madame Re-
naud, famous Congo dancer and
actress \;ho directed the play.
As is the case with all voodoo
worshippers, she believes in one
god who is not providential, with
the sloa-s serving as intermedia-
ry officers and keeping a very
attentive eye on the affairs of
humans.
REACTION TO THEATER
Immaculee stated that she
got cold feet at the beginning of
the play but after the first mi-
nute it, all passed and she felt
right at home. She had attended
a performance at. the Theater de
Verdure once and has been to
*the movies three times, so she
is not exactly a stranger to the
world of' entertainment.
When the box office returns
were in she commented, cPitit
mining gros. (Little leads' to
much) adding that its like a pig
that one purchases for ten gour-
des and sells for two hundred.
Father Edouard is very proud
of his acting family and feels
there is a great future for the
popular theatre in Haiti.
FUTURE THEATRICAL
PLANS
Immaculee plans to put over
a big performance tonight at
6:00 p.m. at the Theatre d'Haiti
in Monte Hercule. She claims
tonight's play will be much bett-
er than last Monday- more re-
hearsals to iron out the rough
spots and a bit of experience be-
hind the peasant actors.
She has also begun rehearsals
for a new role as tMarrianne u'
in Antigone, which will be pre-
sented as soon as formalities are
cleared with the group which
put over the play in 1953 and
allows them to do it again. a

UNITED NATIONS PUTS OX-CART IN KEEPING WITH THE TIMES PRESIDENT WILL

_POSTPONED MEET


The making of. the first wheel was a great event in the
progress of man. The two-wheeled ox-cart, which dates back
to 2000 B.C., is still in use in Haiti. The back-bone of the
sugar industry, these ccabrouettesD, pulled by four oxen, are
used to transport sugar cane from the fields to the various
railhead stations ol the HASCO where the cane is weighed
and shipped to the factory. .


The ocabrouettesv can be seen
along the roads, or in the fields
during the sugar cane season-
from Janutry to June. During
the emort saison. June to*-Ja-

was also the epetft blanks,* a
class of poor white artisans ywho

It can be supposed that the cpe-
tit blanks 'were the first to teach
the wheelmaking trade to the
eafftanchis,) (freed mulattoes
and Negroes) who in turn taught
it to the Haitians. So the craft
was handed down from father,
to son, throughout several gene-
rations, and our present wheel-
nmaking artisans are following
the trade by inheritance

put a building at his disposal.

Mr. Marchand realized quick
ly that the success.of his mission
depended on the nsychologic&i

EDITOR-PUBLISHER BERNARD DIEDERICH
GERANT-RESPONSABLE PAUL E. NAJAC

Festival Weekb At Sans Souci Palace
The Sunx p r o p o s e d to Morisseau-Leroy this week that
Haiti should hold a festival week each year in Cap Haitian at
King Hemri Christophe's Sans Souci Palace in Milot. Such an
outdoor affair would give Haitian playwrights and actors a
chance to put over their plays.
An annual festival of this type would give a tremendous
boost to Haitian tourism and put Haiti on the world-wide cul-
tural map. The organizers of such a fete could count on the
complete cooperation of Le Cap hotels and others interested
in the promotion of tourism.
Mr. Leroy replied to the and approved its location in the lovely ruins. Haiti could have
a Salzburg Festival of its own with music, folklore'plays, chor-
al singing and art exhibitions. during the day.
In 1950, the Haitian government s p o n s o r e d an evening
banquet, on the floodlit Sans Souci grounds. Thousands of
Haitians and visitors attended the lovely show that featured
the Michel Dejean Choir and the beautiful voice of Marian
Anderson. These grounds could again be flood-lighted with
thousands of visitors listening to the Dejean Choir and watch-
ing plays by Morisseau-Leroy and other Haitian playwrights.
During the day the visitor could not only-visit the famed
Citadelle and Fort Picolet but see exhibitions of Haitian art
displayed amidst the splendors of the palace ruins. Invitat-
ions could be sent out to our neighbors in Martinique, Gua-
deloupe, Jamaica. the Virgin Islands and others to visit Haiti
during aFestival Week).
Arrangements could be made to lodge the visitors in Le Cap-
Special dormitories could be set up and the local hotels would
be more than willing to add more rooms for the event.
Smathers Urges (New Look In Ties With Latins
Sen. George A. Smathers has called for a 100-million-dollar
fund to offset Russian economic and political infiltration in
'South America.
He took the words right out of The Miami Herald's. mouth.
For, The Herald, more than a year ago, urged a rapid and
radical change of our foreign trade and investment' policiesD
unless we wished to lose the Latin American market.
This appeal to our government to abandon what Sen. Smath-
ers has called our lethargic approach. was made on the basis
of a' month-long economic study in Latin America by this
writer.
It was based, in particular, on interviews with leading Bra-
zilian and other Latin businessmen, among them a former
Miamian, Humphrey Toomey,, vice-president of Pan American
Airways in Rio de %aneiro.
It was Tooriiey who underlined the seriousness of our deb-
acle by pointing to the growing competition against American
products a n d American transportation systems b y revived
European industries and organizations, particularly those of
German and Italian origin.
But already then it was clear that Moscow would angle for
a piece of tha1t pie.
Moscow has done so now. In spite of that early warning
sounded- in 'January, 1955, by The Herald and other Knight
newspapers, we have done nothing.
Furthermore, in those intervening 17 ipmouths, conditions
in some Latin American countries have deteriorated more than
they should haye. I
Infltion is .nearing such a climax in Brazil that-the curren-
cy may well have.to be devaluated completely to make room
for a new one.
In Rio, an increase in public transportation fares has led
to strikes and riots. Brazil's government had to call on the
army to move machinegun posts onto public streets to calm
the population.
It was Toomey who told this writer 17 months ago: ,We
won't gain new and bigger markets or friends inEurope. Yet
we will lose our friends and markets down here.
It looks very much as if he has been right.
All we have to do is what Smathers says: lethargic approach* in our relations' with Latin America.
And he asked then: We started a Marshall Plan in Europe
- why not in Latin America?*
Yes why not?.

Mr-. Bernard Diederich,

Your recent *letter to the Edit-
3rD concerning the Florida Air
Pilots Association brings up an
inicteresting subject bat the ques-
tions the reader asks were ans-
v 'red a month ago. I
I was consulted on a tour plan
for this group three months ago
and spent considerable time on
plans. I obtained commitments
to handle the group from other
Haitian hotels but the tour
was turned down, mainly be-
cause Santiago de Cuba could
not house them for even one
night.

The 'aircraft used are such
that a flight from Havana to
.Haiti without overnighting in
Santiago 'would be impractical.
We have advanced alternate
plans and hope someday to con-
celude arrangements.
Cordially, R. Paul Weesner
Hotel Riviera

ponse to a recent tdetter to the

D.'-ar Mr. Diederich,

The recent visit of the Amer-
ican Society of Travel Agents to
Haiti should make their approv-
al of a new eTravelers Credit
Services of interest to your rea-
ders.

Under this new. plan a travel-
er can make a journey to foreign
lands with only a few dollars in
his pockets to take care of tips
and incidental expenses. This new
plan can be purchased through
travel agents for $15, plus a
good credit rating, with some
agencies offering membership
free with the purchase of foreign
independent travel tickets..

The traveler will carry a cre-
dit card for pWrchases in select-
ed shops and Restaurants through
out Europe. The card itself will
be encased in a passport wallet
and. includes a list of participat-
ig places with detailed informa-
tion o6 each.
I wonder if Haiti will become
a member of this Travelers
Credit Service.v It sounds like
a wonderful idea. Something like
the gasoline' credit cards that
enable a person to travel through-
out the world and 'in many coun-
tries. It would greatly failitate
shopping in Haiti.


There's only one reliable sour
Genuine Caterpillar Spares..
Caterpillar Dealer.


Caterpillar alone has the experience in
research, metallurgy, manufacturing tech-
niques and performance.


You can't "look under the hide"
you buy spares. Two parts which
alike on the surface may, be v
different in ,quality and fit.


It is a good idea. Is anything
being done about this?

PETION-VILLF'S NEW BUILDING


CITY'S Ist SKYSCRAPER HAS

9-APARTMENTS AND 3-STORES


The oBuilding E. Villedrouinh
at Petion-Vflle, near the Eglis"
St. Pierre ;s the pride of moun-
tain resort residents. The city's
first sky-scraper built by Engine-
er and Madame Emile Vllle'
drouin is a beautiful, modern edi-
fice boasting a ground floor, and
three upper storey's facing the
park, and situated next to the
rPresbyereo of the Parish Cure,
Reverend Father Alfred Monteil.
It is Haiti's first apartment
building, and rises majestically
up on the corner of the princi-
pal highway a real credit to its
owners. Lodgings of three-room
apartments, including kitchenet-


te and bath are tastefully deco-
rated, and -.enants use their own
furniture. Each floor has three
apartments, 'making a total of
nine apartments or 27 rooms.
tnat have greatly contributed to
the relief in the housing short-
ge crisis at Petion-Ville.
The ground floor of the mo-
,dern, fire-proof building is di-
vided into three stores, again
permitting the ePetion-Villois
to enjoy the conveniences of a
new selfservice high class
grocery store, a well-stocked
lew butcher store, and an up-to-
date drug store. No longer must
they go down to Port-au-Prince


to find fresh and reliable pro-
ducts.
At Au Lincoln, a' branch of
the well-known Bazaar Au Lin-
coln at Lalue, makes home deli-
very twice a 'day to the custo-
mners at Petion-Ville, and popu-
lar Jean Baker is the man at the
helm.
Iliech-in.
Au Boeuf Couronne, custo-
miners find iresh imported or lo-
cal meat and fowl at any hour
of the day encouraged by the
immaculate upkeep and impres-
sive installation of deep free-
zers.
The third store-4Pharmacie
G. Lacombe* is one of the most
beautiful and well-stocked in the
Capital. Sale of rSp6cialitds
and Prescriptions are executed
with promptitude and precision
by its Manager, Georges Lacom-
be, a graduate of the Faculte
de Medecine et de Pharmacie.
The distinguished young doc-
tor-pharmacist has come to the
aid of the public with a unique
type of service, and is at the dis-
posal of the public 24 hours per
day.
The Villedrouins may be con-
sidered the prize cprogressistesi
of the city of Petion-Vile, the
residents uf which are grateful
for their new civic contribution
for the benefit of all.

SHOWER BATH FOR FOUR
CENTS ONLY
BY FRANCK J. BAILEY
To those who haven't got the
privilege of a bathroom at their
house, a -hower bath. is availat
ble for only four cents each time
it is taken. Putting bathroom; at
the disposal of people who want
to take a rool shower bath is a'
profession which has been prac-
ticed by a few people in town
for,quite a f.w years. Joe be-
longs to the group p of people who,
-each one separately, practice
that profession.
HOW BATHROOMS ARE BUILT
A little uncovered house which
measures, about two meters high,
two meters-wide and sometimes
up to twenty meters long s .built
in a yard. In all its length, the
house is, ii" equal parts, separated
either with walls or with flat
wood so that each. room may have
a space of about two square met-
ers and places on w'hi& barrils
are placed are set on top 'of
each room. Pipes are, then, pro-
perly set for driving the water-in
the. barrils and,, as these barrils
are quite at the top of the rectan-
gular house, a hydraulic pump is
used for pumping water up when
necessary and a gutter in which
the soaped water rolls down from
the interior of the bathrooms
when people are bathing there,
makes it run directly in the un-
derground drain pipes. In ea.ch


room, there is a common type very anxious to see him become
IwAter tap upder the barril and a an educated man, his parents used
!door. with common latch, so, its to send him to a teacher's house
a' vexy, c-mmo'dius place which for private lessons every after-
any one can use in all security noon, but Joe gave a very small
and besides, the four cents which part of his attention to that as
the one who wants to clean and he realized that since an ignorant
refresh hi* slJn. is supposed to man can make a living -as well as
;pay btfore entering the bathroom, an educated one, it was no use
for him to waste his precious time
1 / in learning to read, though, With
_\ 'the constant efforts of his parents,
jj)u s i he got to be able to readand
d Ki write a note in what he thinks is
/ I I "french.
When Joe was sixteen years old,
his teacher was transferred to
I Port au Prince and, as the well-
known man and his wife wanted

AL FALLS
CHARMS


else in the world.
The District Traffic-Sales Mana-
ger, Port au Prince and his wife,
the Dave Gossetts, are both, char-
ming. They put you at ease imme-
diately, and some of their love of
the island seems to rub off, on to
you.
THE KEY CITY
The City of Port au Prince, at
the junction of the lobster claw-
like formation that forms the west
ern part of the Island of Hispa-
'niola, has a fine harbor' that seems
to extend through three-quarters
of the country. It is certainly the
most important center in Haiti.
I'm told 3, 540 of the 4,200 tele-
phones are located here.
There is a strong community of
interest between Haiti and the
French. An Italian firm has inves-
ted In a hotel, Volkswagens are in
evidence everywhere, the Syrians
are shopkeepers here. there is an
Indian store in town, and a Le-
banese gentlemen registered into
the hotel just ahead of me.
The main crops and exports are
coffee, sugar and sisal in that ord-
er, but everything seems to grow
here with little or no effort. The
world standard for sisal, I'm told,
is set here, and bauxite has been
discovered in great supply. Imp-
orts are almost two and one-third
times as great as exports.
The hotel plant is a small one
(600 rooms), but expanding at a
phenomenal rate, 1956 had 25 per
cent more rooms than 1955, and
1957 will have 25 per cent more
th an1956.
Labor is cheap and drying for
local industry. Two new plants
have just started up (cement and
a battery making plant) and, in
oadition to being profitable, are
supplying a need dnd helping a
young country. There are real op-
portunities here for the progress-
ive businessman and he doesn't
need much of on investment.
Haiti offers opportunity, Haiti
has a wonderful climate, Haiti has
good hotels in lovely surroundings,
Haiti has a natural, rugged, virgin-
al beauty, but her true beauty is
reflected in the faces of her peo-
ple simple1 yes, but living
close to the land with a dignity
in their eyes that belies their
clothes or their station in, life.
Their smiles that appear with'an
unbelievable spon t a n e i ty make
you welcome, really welcome ever-
ywhere... and the smile of a bare
bottomed piccaninny, as he scamp-
ers off to his mommy, make the
visit, for whatever original purp-
ose, worthwhile.

dLt you really
want to bec.
Some acquain-
Sted with Hai-
V ti there are
*t many intere-
w-SK sting trips
S1 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, inm 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 iW a Hertz-Driveit
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 Hai-
tian, Air Force provides safe
and efficient air transport to
most important points in Haiti
at very reasonnalble rates. Ask
your hotel manager or your
travel agent for details.
Each of these trips has its
special attraction. From the

(for which you. will have a new
respect). You will have a new

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
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 mtles of
Haiti spread out before you -.
a miracle of color, fprm, sun-
light and shadow! Poft-au-Prin-
ce lies at your feet (3.000 feet
below) like a giant map. To get
to this breath-taking, unbelie,
cable .and unforgettable viewt
Du' ride 10 miles from Pdrt-au-
Prince, through the petty little


town of Petionville, then up a
- .... -;- -.-.. 1k..-.&- I


roof habitations of peasants ,nd
arrive in rural Haiti, where life
goes on as it has for centuries
as if the city below did* not
exist. LE PERCHOMR, 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
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 tq eat.

CAP-HAITEN
AND LA CITADELLE
This trip is rn experience in
history and geography. It is an
adventure and 'a pilgrimage
which you music not miss.


If you have the tiniAv we re-
cormmend that you take three
days in'd go to Cap-Haifrfii by
car. Its about 170 mfles and A
minimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you'should take about 8 hours
td enjoy it most. So to one of
Cap Haitien's confor.table ho-
tels. For the night, go to the
i~';t l--n-1- ^j_ . .-'j -.1 ... .--_


hour of this trip will be full of
unforgettable impressions.
If you aio pr-.sed for tr-. e,
you can fly to the Cape in 45
minutes, and can make the en-
tire pilgrimage in a single d-iy.


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
I I A .s r. I-

of its own. To get there you'

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 ke.sping with its
French tradition the accent is
on good food in a romantic at-
mosphere. Few places in the
word can offer a more. enticing
blend of these two element
than Le Perchoir, Haiti's smart-
est restaurant that hovers 3,000
-. .3


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 bayihore is outlined in
a necklace of shimmering
pearls., On -the breezeswept
terrace, guests can watch cars
step 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. F6lix Guignard 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
excellent Italian food and later
visit the gaming tables which
are meticulously run underthe
supervision of the Haitian Go-
vernment. On the bay side,
an orchestra beats out rhum-
bas, mamnbos and romantic Hai-,
tian mferingues for dancing un-
der the twinkling stars.

Near the Casino in the bree-
zeswept Exposition :Grunds
is the Open Air Thea, cde
Verdure where visitors can
attend the hi-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
.licnel Desgrottes tri-lin-
nial crooning and a nightly

1a dancer is Minsky's in rever-
4e. 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 Randho features Ti
Ro Ro, Haiti's number one dru-
miner, 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-
mipated 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 serve beside its
pool in a gala tropical garden
decor and, of course, dancing.
The roof garden at HAotel Chou-
coune is open for dinner dan-
cing Monday and Wednesday
nights during the season.
SOn Saturday evening Petion-
ville's thatched-roofed night
club, Cabane Choucoune, is the
mecca of the Capital Elite and
visitors. Alternating orchestras
thrdb 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 dlass. 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 obamboches* or non-reli-
gious dances held in open ctdn-
nelles, to the pulsing beat of
the voodoo drums. It's an UN-
FORGEYTTABLE experience.

BY HOWARD LA FAY

All of us know that the 20th
Century's booming standard of liv-
ing has been purchased by an in-
credible speed-pp in our existence.
We work hard: we play hard. And
our complex, raced-up world ex-
erts constant psychological stress
- that manifests itself in nerv-
ousness, fatigue, s eeplesqness, Ev-
eryone flIs'-. .'it*i s.e degree. -
And over 'ten 'million Amerihant
are sufficientlytense to bear the
medical tag '-neurotic*.
Now, however, science has dis-
coverei an amazing new drug that
effectively controls anxiety. A
small white pill, faintly bitter to
the taste, that brings sleep ,to the
sleepless, relaxation to the tense, y,,
tranquility to the nervous. Its
name: meprobamate.

Athough it has been available
less than a year, already meprob-
amate is the fourth m6it frequent
ly prescribed drug In the United
States!

A typical example of its effec-
tiveness is furnished by the case
of a 3d-ypar-old salesman in the -
state of Wvshington. He had al-
ways bitten his nails; as a child
he was too tense to recite in
school. Nevertheless, he drove
himself to the top of his compa-
ny's sales force. But eventually
the strain proved too much. Sev-
ere. tremors, insomnia, restlessness
and anxiety forced him to quit his
job.
'During psychiatric interviews',
reported Dr. Frederick Lemere of
Seattle, 'he was in constant agit-
ation and could not sit still for
more than a few minutes without
having to get up and pace the
floor'. Barbiturie sedation and
the powert4ii mind-drugs, chlt-
nromazine and reserpine, failed to
h.elp. him.
SThen Dr. Lemere tried meproba-
mate. Says the doctor: 'He teleph-
oned to cancel further appointm-
ents, saying that, for the first
time in his life, he was free from
a constant feeling of shaking and
tension and that he was going
back to work. When last heard
from three months later... he was
still free from nervousness and
wa.s sleeping soundly.'
The medical demand for mepro-
bamate is so great that many
drugstores are unable to fill pres-
criptions. -Our inventory', a harri-


cdrofficial of Wallace Laborator-
ies, one of the manufacturers, told
-Town Journal,,. 'is zero. We're
working overtime, and we're ship-
ping tablets just as fast as we can
package them, but we can barely
fill our orders.'
Sparking the demand is the fact,
well known to doctors, that nerv-
ous stress is at the root of one
half to two thirds of all illness.
For example, it is a contributing
factor in coronary heart disease,
peptic ulcer, hypertension and
many digestive complaints..,
When meprobamate was first in-
troduced, Dr. Howard D. Fabing,
former president of the American
Psychiatric Association, said:

dlf this drug or others like
it Will relieve anxiety sympt-
oms, it will he used by general
practtitioners in one of every
four or five patients who come
trough their doors, because
ti"s I"one of the most comm-
on ills of maj.

Meprobamate, which is market-
ed by WYETH LABORATORIES
AS EQUAN L, was first syn-
thesized in Wallace's laboratory at
New Brunswick, 'N. J. Its. discov-
erer is Dr. Frank A. Berger, a tall,
sandy-haired scientist with a wry
sense of humor who believes that
we all take too many pills.,
While working in England in
1946, Berger had developed a drug
called mephenesin, a powerful
muswicle relaxant that affords a
measure of relief in cerebral pal-
sy. Mephenesin, however, is short-
acting; its effect lasts no more
than an hour. In the course of
use, investigators noticed that it
seemed to erase mental tension as
well as relax taut muscles.
So when Dr. Berger came to
Wallace as Director of Research,
he set out to chemically alter me-
phenesin in a way that would em-
phasize its tranquilizing properties
,nd lengthen its effectiveness. Fi-
nally, in 1950, afterr trying 1,500
variants, he and Dr. B. 3. Lud-
,it'. Wallace's Chief Chemist, suc-
cepded in synthesizing meprobam-
ate.
Dr. Joseph C. Borrus of New
1Brunswick was the first to eval-
uate the new compound in a clini-
cl trial. He gave meprobamate to
1(14 n-vchiatric patients, including
alcoholics s and drug addicts. Fav-
orable results were obtained in 71
patients, with 24 showing compl-

RUSSTA WVE ACCEPT EXCEPT

The news was flashed in rich Creole over Station 4VYM in Bois
-Verna Saturday, afternoon and it sounded like royal Creole humor,
but it later proved to he fact. From the foot of page one on the June
.a8th edition of the Herald Tribune nested the nouvelle'. The Soviet
.(Russia) has offered Haiti $100,000,000 and Haiti had accordingly turn-
ed it down flat, explaining it would mean Haiti would have to accept
Russian technicians and anyway the Republic was doing business with
its good old neighbor, the U.S.A.
The reaction to
this news was wid-

g k^O- 'erable. This column

One spokesman, with a flare for mathematics, figured out that when
Sthe money was completely, and properly distributed each citizen '(com-
rade) would collect $25, the price of a healthy boutique.. But a Croix
des Bossales Banker said the big problem is what kind of money
would the Soviets send us. Russia doesn't have -gourdesa but Rubles
and as the gourde is married to the dollar how could we get rubles
changed into dollars. And as a travel agent suggested, we wouldn't
want it all in gourdes because we'll be wanting to do a little traveling,
even if its only to enjoy the capitalistic pleasures of the carnival in
Santiago de Cuba next month fare is $25 one way. He added that
floating a Cuban loan would get the -Haitian.-public home again.

make Russia a hundred million dollars poorer and Haiti would be
rendering the West a service by weakening her coffers thus making
Itussia eligible for a loan from the West with accompanying technicians..
But as a tourist intransit to the Citadelle calculated and suggested -_
the U.S. should do the right thing now and offer $100,500,000. This is
a poor country and the money might set the country on its feet-
the British jolly well would if they were still masters of the world,
he added.
One thing Haiti needs more than anything else is to get a better
diet and everyone knows there are more proteins in Caviar and Vodka
than in imported petrified Canadian codfish and locally distilled Clarin.

Dear Mary,
I have a (Tres serious. question
to ask of you. I have a boy friend
I will marry him in one more
year. Now as my family is strict
we see each other not so much
and always under the strong eye
of a member of the family. Now
my boy friend I know he often
goes out with some of the wild
boys to the cafe on a Saturday
night. He jokes that he goes out
to freshen up his spanish. How
should I feel is this natural, doer
he love me, should I hate him or
is it true, what I read in the
books, that a boy esow his wild
oats., before marriage, then h.
is good. Please advise me.
Going out of Mind.
Dear G. 0. M.
If he loves you he should respect
you and your feelings. Apparent
ly he is something of a sadist and
is applying a little torture. If he
has to sow his wild oats tell him
lot to make a public demon'tra-
'ion of the harvesting. If he is so
interested in learning spanish
vhy don't you learn and converse
vith him.
Mary.

President's Visit

New interest has been shown
tha healthful mineral waters of
Sources Chaudes, in the north,
since President Magloire visited
the springs two years ago. Sour-
ces Chaudes' vacation season
lasts for six months, from May to
October, and many vacationers
'from Gonaives, Port-de-Paix, Cap
Haitian, St Marc and from Port-
au-Prince go there for a rest
and to heal their ailments.
SGradually expanding the city
will boom once the tourist dis-
covers the worth of these baths.
During the colonial period, 'an
edict of Louis XVI ordained that
a health center be built for the
soldiers and the landlords, rich
or poor. Now a small village,
this French colonial health cent-
er at one time had two large
hospitals, a hydrotherapeutics
center, many comfortable hou-
ses, a chapel -and several stores.

TRAINING PROGRESSES

During the sugar cane season,
most artisans quit their work-
shop to work in the fields or for
the HASCO. So, from January
to June -only a few students go
to school. The courses started
with wood work. Mr. Marchand
uses the local woods, which he
buys from Port-au-Prince. The
naves are made with eBayaron-
des, the spokes with cBois
Blanc-, ,eCandelons or uCampe-
chew-and the wheels with Aman-
dier. He helps them make
their own shopboards so they
can work more comfortably.
Since they are Quite advanced
In the woodworks, Mr. Marchand
will start icon works with them
in July.

His most aged students are
respectively 75 and 64 years old.
Boss Louis, 64 years old, is the
most jovial and the most coura-
geous whe.ei maker of Croix-des-
-Bouquets. His workshop is no
different from that of other ar-,
tisans a few hatchets, a pile
of wood, a rudimentary forge-*
