MESSAGE OF THE PRESIDENT ON -UNITED NATIONS...

Today, October 24th, the world is celebrating the Day of "
the United Nations, the ahni v e r s a r y of the Organization -
which, after ten years of efforts and of sage action, has im-' .
posed itself in the conscience of the peoples to whom it per--
sonifies the noble aspirations towards PEACE.

In the name of the Government and of the Haitian People,
I am happy and proud to join my voice with those who, from -1
the four corners of the universe, art being lifted in the same I
fervor to render homage to the work of the United Nations .U
and to offer testimony of their attachment to its Ideal.
For the first time in the history of mankind, miracle made '
possible by the evolution of science, all the peoples feel them-
selves members of one human family. They are participating -
in, Peace with the struggle against- egoism, ignorance and hun- '
ger in order to fortify the tree of liberty there where it Is "|
already sprouting and to implant it in the lands which are'
still awaiting it. .

It is my conviction that the Organization of the United Na-
tions will continue its task with the same passion for Peace .
and that humanity, because of it, will work on for a long time,,.;
in all tranquility, towards improving its condition 'with the :
aid of modern technical methods. .
I am very lnieased, on this day, to send cordial greetings :
from the Haitian people to the Member States of the OrganiiA. :
tion of the United Nations and to assure them of the unfail.. '
ing attachment of the Republic of Haiti to the high principles iF
of the Charter which binds us all together..,,,,

Canapd frt,


esing newspaper such as it is.
Whenever you would like a, r&-
port on what goes on here, if it
be of interest to your readers,
don't hesitate to afk me, and I'll
see to it that you get it. I've not
completely forgotten about my
training in the trade, you know,
let alone my experiences therein.
I think the SUN is doing a good
job for Haiti abroad and should
report to its readers on Interna-
tional matters also.

But, so much for that. I'd be
interested in hearing from you as
soon as you can. Meanwhile, keep
on the good work and here are
the best greetings from Germany
to both of you, Mme Laporte and
yourself and also to the members
of your staff. They come from
lovely and romantic Heidelberg,
the cradle of German intellectu.
al life, one of the most beautiful
spots of the Wurtemberg region
which I can admire every' day
from my window down on the
Neckar 4iver valley, dominated
by the ruins of the old, legendary
Castle of the Count Palatinates.

Good Bye, for now, and let me
lbear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Max Wilsbn.

BELATED GREETINGS

October 15, 1956
Dear Bernie:

My September 23 issue of the i
Haiti Sun. (which, true to form, b
has arrived exactly three weeks
ate) informs me that Your Baby
has reached his her its seventh
birthday (what's the protocol on


like Mankind, or feminine like:
Nations?). Of course, I could hard-
ly let the anniversary gci by with-
out acclaim from your Brooklyn
fans- and though I cannot offer
my congratulations in person, as
you did so charmingly on my Hap-
py Day in Haiti, I do want to wish
you, the staff, and the paper, many
happy returns with bigger and
better circulation every year!

You know just what the Sun
represents to everyone in Port-au-.
Prince; you've watched it disip-
pear from hotel desks every Sun-
day morning, and you've heard
your news items supporting Mon-
day's conversations. But perhaps
what you don't realise completely
is what the Sun represents to a
reluctantly *in absentia* admirer
of things Haitian. The Sun is my
living, link with Haiti, duringthe
bleak time that I spend in N.Y,
and if anyone wonders how my
enthusiasm for your country was
kept always alive and renewed
even during a four-year absence-
well, you can tell 'them that the
Sun was largely responsible. I
hope the sly banter, the personal
tone, the wide interest-range of
the paper never change,
however much it expands- and
I know it must. There is an
intimacy in the pages of the Sun
that sets me right in the middle
of the streets of Port-au-Prince,
and almost tempts me to call out
the names of my friends there; I
haven't even tried to analyse what
specific traits make m= feel'this
way about the paper---all I .want
is to be able to enjoy it for a
ong, time. etc.

dBestest,
Judy Ross

who, besides doing the cooking,
washes and irons their clothes.
After a workday, they may play
cards 'bois nan nez, with the
country folks and may also at-
tend a dance tindingue. It hap-
pens sometimes that one of them
discovers his future wife at such
a gay country parties. I
These men are very practical
and business-minded. 'With the
little cash they have in hand, they
buy food crops, eggs, chickens,
fruits etc-. which, back in Port-
au-Prince they hand over to their
wives to retail in the markets.
With the benefit of these sales,
they invest in another business
and renew their stocks of mer-
chandises and go back to the pro-
vince to resume their commer-
cial pilgrimage.
There is no doubt that they realise
a substanc;al gain in this trade. I
For these kaki-clad men are al-
ways cdean and some of them have
a wrist-watch and wear blue sun-
glasses etc... (a sign of 'bour-
geoisie.)
Many speak Spanish, and it can
be guessed that they brought this
tradition back from Cuba where
hundred, of thousands of Haitians
have worked in sugar cane plan-
tations for the last quarter of a
century. Another point which con-
firms this is that they have a
strong liking for jewels, mainly
for gold. (Naturally the chains
and bracelets they sell are only si-
mulated gold.)
When they become prosperous
enough, they might hire a few
men to do the trade for them,
While keeping up another and
more important business they sup-
ply them with enough goods and
draft their respective itineraries
throughout the country.
