A GREAT ARTIST NEEDS YOUR HELP
This is <,Lumane Casimir Week> at Port au Prince. The
Haitian public has decided to do something about the pathetic
case of the once-famed folklore artist.
Bedridden, suffering from paralysis, skin disease, and ab-
andoned by.the ,fair weather>* husband who gave her his
name at the height of her fame, Lumane is being snatched
back from the certain death she was facing when Antoine H6-

In gratitude for the enjoyment provided by Lumniane with
her gay songs and talent in the hey-day of her career, citizens
and residents are coming to her aid to help her make a fight
for her life. She is in dire need of specialized medical .care.
'Director Herard's plea in favor of this forgotten star of
yesterday will give everyone a chance to do a good deed by
contributing to the .Lumane Casimir Fund* opened by Radio
Port au Prince.
Contributions may be .sent to the offices of the Haiti Sun.

PROTECT OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN FROM

children of the Capital who are to be seen zig-zagging around
the numerous piles of cirt in the streets, and dodging the ve-
hicles that bear down all around them as they make their way
back and forth to school.
The increased traffic, and the complications produced by
the work being done everywhere, at once in the streets of the
city, are a constant danger to the youngsters. Safety measures
could be introduced, and monitors chosen among the older
students, to watch out for the small pupils. The monitors could
be identified by white bands worn on the arm, and they could
be placed at points where the school population empties out
into the streetg four nimes a day. The very small children
should certainly be grouped and escorted to their various es-
For the sake of these tiny folk, it would even be advisable
to close certain sectors to two-way traffic on school-days, for

OCCURRING IN CARIBBEAN
TRAVEL UM SURVEY DISCLOSES
BY 1965, an estimated two and
Sone-quarter million travelers
will be pouring into the Carib-
bean area, compared to a pro-
bable total of some 1,000,000 this
This is one of the interesting
forecasts contained in a study of
eThe Tourist Industry of the
Caribbean Islands,. by Robert
J. Voyles, published by the Bu-
.. reau of Business and Economic
Research of, the University of
Miami. I I i ,
During the period from 1951
.to 1955, Mr. Voyles found that
significant changes took -place in
Sthe distribution of visitors to
the Caribbean, and he adds,
pointedly, further changes in
this distribution undoubtedly
will occur in the next decade.
Cuba, he ascertained, chas re-
ceived larger and larger numb-
Sers of visitors each 'year, but her
proportionate part of the total
is steadily declining.
To a lesser extent, ,this pat-
tern is also evident in Jamaica
ei The relative declines for Cu-
Sba, Jamaica and Trinidad have
ti' .been absorbed by the Dominican
'Republic, Haiti, Nassau and
i, Puerto Rico.
tc The rest of the islands have
Maintained an almost constant
.increment of the total visitor

j' HOW LONG tourists remain
I..n an area is an important ele-
Sment int appraising the economic
t- significance of their visits, Mr.
S But he finds that an accurate
: analysis of Caribbean travel is
handicapped by the lack of de-
pendable figures upon which to
base a true conclusion. Instead,
estimates have to be relied
upon, a situation which does not
produce the most desirable re-
Thus, in computing Caribbean
travel, a traveler may visit Ja-
maica, where he is counted once.
If he proceeds on to Haiti, this
same person is counted again:
in the Dominican Republic, he
may be counted a third time,
'and so on.
So, he adds, in the Carib-
bean, especially, the figure of
1,000,000 visitors annually ac-
tually does not tell too much
about the value .of this tourist
trade unless it is known how
long these persons stayed in
WHILE areas closer to South
America attract more Latin
Americans and those closer to
North America more Americans
and Canadians, Mr. Voyles ob-
serves -it is apparent that visit-
ors from the dollar areas com-
prise .the predominant part of
As to the economic signifi-
cance of tourism, ihe quotes fi-
gures to show that total Carib-
bean travel expenditures in
1951 were $95,428,800, an aver-
age of $139.95 per visitor who
spent $28.10 a day, while in
1955, the aggregate rose to $126.
818,000, an average expenditure
per tourists of $126.67; or $25.44

PERENNITE DU BATIMENT
J'etais accoutum6 de repondre, suivant le vieux dicton po-
pulaire, qu'il ne faut point discuter des gofits et des couleurs,
jusqu'au jour oft il me fut donned de voir, en province, cLes
Enfants d'Edouard*, dramne en vers de M. Casimir Delavigne,
piece d'epoOquie conque dans la tradition du th Atre 6lizabe-
La distribution des d6cors, des costumes, de la publicity,
des programmes avait etM rgl6e avec soin. Mats le chorege
n'avait pas longtemps medit,6 sur le choix des interpretes: avec
son nez convexe et son teint basane, l'un des jeunes princes
a'ait l'air d'un berger anatolien venu clidt Pamir ou des solitu-
ties miontagneuses de I'Hadramaut. la bride mongolique do
'autre, ses pommettes proeminentes nous disaient netteinent
que ses ancetres avaient s6journ6 sur les bords du Hoang-Ho
ou lirtl avec les Tongouse. Ainsi, convaincu de l'infid&lite
de la Souveraine, le spectateur s'attardait A d6plorer l'infor
tuie du monarque (consequence ingdnieuse de la distribution.
mais aue l'auteur n'avait point prevue). Lorsque parut enfin
la reine'-mre, ce fut Ie delire: c'etait iine plantureuse negres-
se qui psalmodiait les vers avec emphase. II y avait de quoi
bouleverser I'enseignement de l'Histoire et de la g6rntique.
Voila donc une representation manau&e par la faute des in-
terpr-tes. de leur seul aspect physique.
Comment parer A cet 6cueil? Faut il renoncer A jouer deo
bonnes pieces si les interpretes n'ont pas le-physique de i'ern-
ploi ce aui est le cas fort souvent? Doit-on conseritir a tra-
vestir des chefs-d'oeuvre? Ou se -c6ntenter de presenter des
productions du repertoire national?
De routes ces solutions, je ne choisirais strement pas la
derniere, pliisaue le theatre n'est pas notre fort. Malgr6 Ia
creation d'un Conservatoire et les initiatives valeureuses de
qielques particuliers, qui oserait en effet parler d'une efflo-
raison de Part dramatioue en Haiti9 Je voudrais, A ce stijet,
rappeler un autre souvenir personnel: II v a dix ans, un eccl6-
siastique ayant A preparer tirn ouvrage.sur, notre theAtre, nma-
vait remis Ie manuscrit de plusieurs oeuvres in6dites :il me
demandait d'en extraire des. passages dignes de figure dans
une anthologie. A part quelques drames de.Massillon Coicou.
les productions meritaient, A mon sens de demeurer indites:
plus que le culte 'de la beauty formelle ou observation minu-
tieuse des caracteres et la fine analyse des sentiments, ce qui
les distinguait en general, c'6tait l'imbroglio impr6vu des si-
tuations, le sotici de la gi-andiloqcuence, du grandiose, de la
magnificence, du coup d'6clat.
Cette p6nurie d'une production national de quality incite
nos 6ph6mnres directeurs de theatre A monter des pieces 6tran
geres. Nul ne saurait les blAmer. Puisque l'organisation mat6-
rielle d'un spectacle, en particulier des grandes machines, en-
traine de fortes d6penses, aucune consideration de nationalis-
me culture ne, devrait d6cider du choix des pieces. <
nons de jouer une piece 6trangere, si nous avons dans notre
tiroir un chef-d'oeuvre 6galement stranger, nous sommes te-
,nus d'y renoncer et de nous ruiner en montant obligatoirement
une piece fran.aise A laquelle nous ne croyons pas.* En Haiti,
par centre, aucun.trait6 unilateral ne lie nos homes de th6A-
tre a une despotique Socidt6 des auteurs. La SNAD et Moris-
seau-Leroy sont dontc libres de puiser dans le vaste repertoire
dramatique de 1'6tranger.
Souhaitons cependant ou'ils ne se laissent pas seduire par
les pieces historiques. Je veux bien concevoir qu'une negresse
figure le personnage de Phedre, d'Hermione ou de Berenice,
parce que, chez Racine, l'analyse des sentiments prime tout
le reste. Mais, je ne puis concevoir Henri VIII, Cromwell qu
Napoleon sous les traits d'un negre. Je ne puis concevoir le
Duc d'York, Enfant d'Edouard, sous les traits d'une chinoise
le r6le avait en effet Wte camp en province par une exqui&e
.J'avais A vrai dire compltemnient oublie la m6saventure des
En'fants d'Edouard. Or un matin, apres la lecture du ,Mal-
entendu,), on s'avisa de discuter au Th6atre d'Haiti de P'ave-
ir de l'art dramatique. On parla de la carence des chefs-d'ceu
vre. La-dessus, utine jeune dame proposal un remAde: Pourquoi
ne pas jouer xLa Putain respectueuse, de M. Sartre? Sur- le
coup, le jeune prince anglais aux yeux brides nm'apparut. Al-
lait-on demander A une chinoise ou A une negresse d'interprd-
ter le r6le de cette fille du Sud? Morisseau-Leroy, tres avis6,
avoua que La Putain ferait son affair-, mais .. oue la distri-
bution ne serait pas ais6e Atant donned oue l'aciton se deroule
dans une communaute blanche esclavagiste. (En voilA au moins
un aui ne se laisserait nas tenter par les tragedies de M. Ca-
simir Delavigne!) A quelques jours de IA. un june acteur vint
m'annoncer une extravagant nouvelle: il avait rdsolu de mon-
ter (.La Putain, A ses frais!.!! Pourauoi pas? me disait-il. Apres
tout ma soeur possede un ohysiaue de theatre. Elle peut par-
faitement tenir le r6le. Elle n'a pas tout A fait le type, c'est
entendu, mais pourauoi accorder tant d'importance A la cou-
leur des internreteo? C'est faire du racism. Et Personnelle-
