When Father Monteil emerged
frin tbhe age-worn edifice of Egli
se St. Pierre where he had gone
tor a short prayer, he stood look-
ing out over the thousands of
kneeling parishoners who were
weeping and praying. He raised
his hand to give the benediction
for one dramatic moment, to the
people who were there in a tou-
ching manifestation of sympathy
and confidence in the man who
would within the hour leave their
midst after 28 years.

With guards forcing a passage
tar the limousine floating the
Haitian bi-colors in which he was
tu travel, Father Monteil finally
sat waiting while the crowd ova-
tioned him during 30 min Then aft
er Father Jaffr6 took his seat
beside him, the church bells rang

During his stay in Guantanamo,
Mr. Davis is reported to have dis-

number of visiting ships and li-
berty parties to both Port-au-Prince

In Haiti, the houseboys' most
cherished possession is his cock.
You will never catch him neglect-
ing his cock as he will his chores
around the house. At day break
he'll rise and check the cock's con-
dition, give it a rub-down with
moist dew, follow it up with a gin-
ger-root massage. Then, the bird
'is placed by bis devoted master und
er a tree in' the yard with one foot
made fast by a cord with its feed
of corn, or finely-cut up sweet po-
tatoes within easy reach. It is not
until all these rites have been ac-
complished will the servant be rea-
dy to face his day's work .Should
the voice of his employer, com-
plaining from the house about some
neglected task reach his. ears, he
simply calls back that he is bath-
ing, or is using the W.C. Then he
warns the cook that the hen she
has brought from the market will
be chopped into morsels as fine as
the meal of sweet potatoes on the
ground, if he catches it near his
precious cock. Training rules for-
bid any sentimental indulgences.
The humblest of yard boys ma-
nage to find 5 godrdes to purchase
any species of cock available, and
for the "next six months he'll give
it 90% of his time getting it tough-
ened up and primed for a place in
the local ,gaguerre.,. In Port-au-
Prince every section of the city has
one of these cock'-arenas, mostly
located in the numerous 'ravines',
and Sunday is the day }rhen the
min ca.' freely indulge in their
favorite gambling-fest.
Cock-fighting is so typical of the
life of th& population that' an Ita-
, lian.. 'commercant built the now
famous; 'Coq d'Or,. as a tourist
attraction and opened up on a big
scale for the 1949 celebrations of
the. BI-Centenaire of *Port~au-Prin-
ce. The pit 'is located in the sec-
tion of the Cite de l'Exposition.
known as 'Les' Palmistes.. Over
the .past y'ars. as many as 60 cocks
go in the ring thee times a week-
Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays,
with the local boys and tourists
placing their bets, in a spectacle
of boisterous fraternity.
On Sunday as many -as twelve
cock-fights at the Coq d'Or* may
take place: The species range from
the larger bird' 'Coq pangnol'
to the local'and cross-breeds found
in Haiti. The owners generally
back their own in an exchange of
bets ranging from, $100.00 to $500.

00. Side bets run the ugamme' of
from 50c to several thousand dol-
lars, as the spectators reach over
and upwards toward each other as
the bets are taken up.
Four or five owners may be seen
to go down into the pit, their fight-
ers held close under the arm, and
after a thirty to forty-minute bick-
ering match among them, an agtee'
meant as to the odds is made only
after the fighters have momenta-
rily been transferred to the hahds
of the opponent for inspection.
They examine the heads, the legs,
feel through the feathers, and sud
denly place the sharpened spur
of the fowl in their mouths for an
exploratory examination. 'Rarely
will this reveal any metallic subs-
tance touching the men's tongues,
for the cocks in Haiti fight with
their beaks. Only in Central Amer-

ica are they provided with
spurs for a bout in the.pit.


The sizeable pile of rumbled and
faded paper that is carelessly al-
lowed to remain unguarded during
the examination, is the 'filthy lu-
cre' that is to be engaged in the
betting. It seems to appear from
nowhere in particular, yet the gour
des and greenback may go up into
the thousands, and not a man tou-
ches that which is not his own, no
matter how hot the argument and
Some of the bets are placed

keep up to standard. In such a
case, the losing owner's money
and his cock are confiscated by
the winner, and the crowd goes
mad. Often this involves a sCoq
qualit6, and the wirrer is gra-
tified two-fold.

The fighters ate usually game,
and with beaks striking beaks,
and wings lifting them up,
feathers fly, in a cBoulevard,uv
as both fight in the air. Finally
one goes down as his adversary

Sometimes a fight ensue among the
owner-rivals if .monter un coq is
suspected-that is that they niight
find themselves in .the presence
of a case where the fighter has|.
been rendered invulnerable or un-
beatable by magic processus. Then
the spectators are treated- by the
only approach to boxing and
wrestling matches that they might
expect to see in Haiti. '

Throughout entire Haiti the
boisterous cheers that fill the
air on Sundays series from the
agaguerre.= And once when the
eSun was on a yisit to Marbial

Cockfighting takes the place
of prize-fights, and horse racing
in this little Republic,and like
all gambling it has its painful
effects on the morals of society.

As the tSunh once printed -
ithere 'is' the story of a comrade
who went to a cockfight with a
friend's cock, and returned
later with a long face to explain
that the cock had lost and
paid the supreme sacrifice in the
pit. He refrained from telling the
truth that the cock had won, and
that instead of rushing to his
'compere' with the good news, he
told an unconvincing story. The
owner was hard to convince, and
the thief and liar called op God to
strike him down dead if he was
telling a lie.

To the shock of the assembled
relatives, he fell dead at their feet,
and the Juge-de-Paix made his pro-
ces-verbal ozi the very spot, after
removing a heavy wad of bank
notes the winnings of the vic-
torious cock and the price it had
brought in a sale of the champion.

In Leogane, during the HASCO
sugar-cane harvest, the people are
animated and money flourishes.
The Sunday cock fights, at this
time of the year, is the main event
in the community. Marchandes
travel from Port-au-Prince to Leo-
gane to offer machettes', ready-
,made pants and shirts, Sapattes,
at the gaguerres. Tile local mer-
chants bigs trays furnish the *ma-
rinades', cola at quinze centimes
($.03) *griot, and 'du riz a pois
cole." They drink beverages of
'bois cochon' or white rhum. The
cock fighting there is enchanced
by side games of cards, dice, and
ia roulette.' It is a big day- al-
most like a Country Fai', and the
marchandes return home with a
goodly share of the winnings from
the cock pit.

has possibly the country's best col-

Asked why the service is not op-

the following schedule: Weekdays
--Open from 7:30 A.M. to 10:00 P.
M.-- Sunday Morning --Open from
8:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. This sched.
ule was published and advertized.
Results: --Practically no one came
1o the Library during off hours.
Mr. Bissaintbe added that they
may try this test again soon, just
to see if things and people have
changed somewhat.

September 30, at St Vincent's

on Rue des Casernes across from
Wilson Dodge. Classes and Service

... It is surprising to learn that this island, since the revolu-
ban of 1804 has produced a greater number of books in pro-
portion to the population than any other American country,
with the exception of the United States... and the first public
library of Port au Prince, founded in 1812, is supposed to have
0een the first in the Americas, though, like everything else
gri Haiti, it suffered from the vicissitudes of her civil wars.

of the Capital, on Rue du Centre,
the white concrete, modern build-
ing housing the National Library,
faces the important scholastic Ins-

is reportedly one of the best situ-

Beorganisation And Additio.s At National Library Underway

-3 year plan to boost library

Auguste (of Cap Haitien) collection
was also a Bibliotheque Nationale
I Rare D uments
The Library is in possession of
several rare documents on the His-
tory of Haiti, including a Treaty
signed between President Petion
and the French, by which France
recognized Haiti's independence
long before the humiliating ordon-
nonce of Charles X ,granting, au-
tonomy to San Domingue.
General Collection
Besides several collections of all
the newspapers, reviews and maga-
zines published in Haiti, the Libra-
ry has n tremendous quantity of
leaflets, booklets, tracts, p bclam-
ations which can give an idea of
the Haitian struggle for life and
liberty throughout Haiti's agitated
history as an independent nation.
Foreign Language Books
The English and Spanish section.
of the Bibliotheque Nationale are
also well provided with the works
of the most important writers of
England and the Americas.
Mr. Malval who has written a
thesis ,A Bibliography of Material
published in English in the United
States About Haiti, is particularly
interested in gathering the old and
new books published in North
America on Haiti.
Reorganization to take
3 years
The arduous task of reorganisa-
tion through which the Library is
passing is expected to take more
than three years. The cataloguing
is actually undergoing complete re-
formation, since the acquisition of
the new collections. A new Read-
ing and Reference Room is being
,set up in the brand new North
East wing.
Branches created in Provinces
Since its foundation, the Natio-
nal Library has not only worked to
maintain its prestige in the Capit.
al, but has also created local li-
braries in the major cities of the
Republic. Branches are to be found
in Cap-Haitien, Port de Paix, Gon-
aires, Jacmel, Jeremie, Cayes and
St. Marc. Those in the Capital at
Lycde Pdtion. Ecole Normale d'In-

For the past several weeks, Mr.
Btssainthe and his staff of eleven
have been busily preparing their
shelves for the opening of school,
since the ,clinetele, of Bibllothe-
que Nationale is composed mostly
of the students from the colleges
and University. There is a present
stock of 18,000 books.
A new wing with a capacity for
86 places built in this current year
is being furmshed with metal ta-
bles and chairs, imported from En-
gland. The shelves are also of me-
tal, The old readingroom is to be
remodelled and modernly equip-
State Subsidy
The National Library is subsidi-
zed by the Deportment of National
Education. This alone is not uffi-
cent to permit the buying of a lar-
ge quantity of books, so Director
Bissainthe insists on the quality of
purchases rather than quantity.
Category of Persons using
Reference Books
With journalists, histbrian.s, and
intellectuals using the books for
reference, statistic'at the Library
show that at least 20,000 books are
requested monthly.
Records show that students, as
well as professional Titers use
mostly books on history, poLitical
and economic sciences, while the
literary books are rarely consulted.
Need more People interested
in faeillties
The concern, of the Directorship
is to boost the number of persons
interested in the facilities offered
to the "community by the Library
Some individuals have their own
private library and fine collection
of bOoks, but the general public
has no access to such.
The Bibliotheque Nationale is
concentrating all its efforts upon
enriching its sheh'es with several
important collections. It recently
make a cash purchase of the 3000.

books, of the late Benjamin Vin-
