Two Most Promising Artist At
Centre d'Art Are Vital And Byron

There are certain similarities in the cases of the two most
interesting and promising personalities amongst the Centre
d'Art's new artist, Paul6us Vital and Bourmond Byron. Both
were born in Jacmel, both were introduced to the Centre at
approximately the same time, earry in '55 and both began
painting comparatively late; in their thirties. But here the
similarity ends. Vital -might best be described as a natural
or primitive realist while Byron is 'a romantic symbolist. The
first paintings by Vital showed a fresh and personal talent
of great charm whereas the first Byrons were of an astonish-
ing finesse and beauty unequalled since the early paintings
of Hector,,Hyppolite. These two important new artists were
first encouraged to paint by the well-known Haitian primi-
tive painter Prefete Duffaut, also of Jacmel and the half
brother on the maternal side of Vital.

The United States is faced with one of the most momentous deci- ,."
sions of the post-war era. The Egyptian Ambassador in Moscow, M6-. 7,'
hammed el Kony, has been instructed by his Government in Cahiro' ,.
to request the immediate dispatch of Soviet volunteerss. Great sto- .,'.. *:
res of Soviet arms are believed to be in Egypt and Syria. This could .'
be the beginning of Soviet control of the Middle East, with its fab- t:
ulous oil fields and its vital Suez Canal. We would be ostrich-lik e'to' ;.".
ignore these facts, to fall back on peqce whatever the price,, or jo. .
believe that the United Nations can pull our chestnuts out of the ...
fire for us. The dispatch of U. N. troops to the Suez Canal is a brave :
step but not a certain one. ....... ........ '

The issue is between the United States and the Soviet Union. We A
must not let anything disguise this paramount fact. We must, in the ,
immediate future, decide whether we are going to play the global ,'
role for which our strength and genius and the developments of Aop- '--V
dern history prepared us, or whether we are going t retire to' For- '
tress America- and to an isolation that might be maintained for, a f.t
short while. I ........................... .... ........ .. i
The writing is on the wall and it has been for' days. Once President ,..

Dear Editor,
In the last issue of Haiti Sun
I read that the Inter American
Music Festival and the First
American Exposition of Contem-
porary Art scheduled to take
place in New Orleans next year
has been postponed to 1958..
This, I think, is a good chance
for Haiti to get ready for a pres
tigious participation at these
grand artistic events. There is
no doubt that the -Haitian artists
will have a great success in New
Orleans, for, for the past few
months the Centre d'Art and
other centres of painting and
sculpture are busily working for
the development of -this art
which is'becoming the most po-
pular in Haiti.
But, although there has
been an increasing interest
in fostering Haitian m u s i c,
'm not quite sure that
our participation at the Music
Festival will be as brilliant. Mu-
sicians should start right now
to work seriously over the abun-
dant material of the Haitian Folk
Repertory more. and better pro-
Tourism has greatly contribut-
ed to the development of Haitian
Music for the past decade. We
have to fear that some musicians
will try to sell cheap music* as
some artists,have sold chqap
paintings to. tourists. I mean
that some songs recently compo-
sed can hardly be recognized as
typically Haitian. We must not
couch on our laurels, for the p

1958 Music Festival is organise(
for contemporary interamericai
musicians. We cannot present
the works of Justin Elie, Lamo
the or Occide Jeanty, we havE
to give something new.
The Dramatic Players have
formed an association for the de
velopment of theater, for the
preservation of their legitimate
rights and also fostering new ta
lents in dramatic arts. It is a pi.
ty that up to nowv our musicianE
have not taken that step.
Can't your newspaper do some
thin& about it? I think that the
Press should help to pave the
way for an Association of Musi-
cians and Composers which will
of course include all the dance
orchestras, ensembles, trios and
*jazz, of the country. ,

600 ft. into the hillside, tunnel-

Over the top of ithe hill is the

over a distance of five miles to
the west, are the. Cassius and
Bressilac surface showings on
the north side of the valley, and
rich outcroppings recently uncov
ered on the south .side.
.That, in brief, is5 the picture
as seen .by The Financial Post
on a, visit to tho iroperty re-
ehtfly 7

That the picture is coming
into focus is largely due to the
confidence and tenacity of one
Sman- William Plexman, young
(44) veteran of Noranda's under-
ground and of prospecting in
many parts of Canada.
Consolidated Halliwell's short
career, up to this point, had had
many parallels in Canadian min-
I, ng. Its name was changed from
SHaIllwell Gold Mines Ltd. in Ja-
nuary, 1954, on an exchange ba-
sis of, one new share for four
old; in April, 1955, capitalization
wad increased from five million
common shares to 10 million
(now.. outstanding: 7.6 million
shares). These shares came up
from a low of 44c to hit a high
of $3.75. With reacting to price
cuts in the metal Hallwell shares
currently trade at about $1.96.

The company )looked at sever-
Sal Canadian properties; then
through New York interests,, it
acquired Haitian-American Mi-
nerals Corp., which held explo-
ration rights for minerals, prin-
cipally lignite, in a 100-sq mile
area. The Hamco proposal was
to mine lignite for the Haitian
Government for fuel. It was
known, too, there was some cop-
per in the area-it had been mi-
ned by numerous short tunnels
into the hillsides some 50 years
* ago by a French company.
PlNexman's View
SOn his first visit to the pro-
-perty, profiting by his Noranda
experience, 'Plexman was convince
ed there was a substantial copp-
er deposit. (The lignite was poor
quality, with no prospect of a
large domestic market.)
New York and Toronto groups
were fighting for control of the
company and its treasury. But
Plexnlan fought them both off,
and kent control in a battle of
subpoenas, injunctions and prox-
ies at the annual meeting in
Montreal last spring.
In the meantime, he had gain-

Canadian mining know-how 'and
ingenuity plus $1 million to
date-are well on the way to cre-
ating a new industry 1,700 miles
to the. south-in the Republic of
"The industry is copper min-
ing; the Canadian company be-
hind the venture is Consolidated
Hauweivl Ltd., with the support
of the 'holding, developing and
f lnancing company, Mogul Min-
iig- Corp., Toronto.

On the basis of proven ore re-
serves to date averaging 2.6%
copper, Consolidated Halliwell
is assured of -a mill of at least
1,500 .tons a day. But it will be
some time before it decides on
mill size and location. That's be-
cause exploration of its 100-sq
mile concession in Northwestern
Haiti is continuing, and the ex-
ploration in an area exteqnding
fiye miles from the present main
camp is turning up some remar-
kable surface showings.

ed the interest of H. W. Knight,
Tr., and Mogul Mining Corp. Dr.
W. W. Weber, managing direct-
or of Mogul, was named consult-
ing geologist for Halliwell, and
after a close examination of the
property in February, gave it
the goahead sign.
Financing toward a mill is as-
sured, with M6gul underwriting
$5 million (at $96) of an $8-mil-
lion 5% sinking fund deben-
ture dated June 1, 1956, matur-
ing May 31, 1963. Mogul also has
rights on two million CHL sha-
Keeping control of the Cana-
diman company was only half of
Pleiman's battle.
In Haiti itself, he had two prob
(1) Remembering other Am-
erican and Canadian oil and min-
eral promoters, the Haitian Gov-
ernment was' wary. It 'had seen
other companies pay off for
rights, then float stock in the
U.S. and run up a market with-
out making any attempt to deve-
lop the property.
,(2) Haiti had no mining equip-
ment and no miners.
The first problem was solved
by a gradual program of deve-
lopment, showing concrete re-
sults in the form of permanent
buildings, access roads, the tun-
nel into the hillside and with
all this a partial solution to the
second problem.

Mining equipment was brought
in from Canda. Drilling contracts
were let to Inspiration Mining
& Development Co., and a train-
ing program begun to make mi-
ners out of Haitian natives who
had previously used gnly ma-
chete and grub-hoe.

While the number of natives
engaged in actual mining opera-
tion is small at present, Consoli-
dated Halliwell.at the end of Oc-
tober had a payroll of 660,, earn-
ing some $26,000 a month. About
30 Canadians are employed -
drillers, office staff, geologists,
etc., with a large proportion of
French-Canadians as drillers,
since French is the official lan-
guage.and their knowledge of
the- language speeds up the pro-
cess of teaching.
iThe Haitians are going to
make good miners,' said Virgil
Frank, managing director of
Sedrens SA, the CH subsidiary
and general manager of the ope-
ration. 'They learn fast, and we
don't anticipate much trouble in
training them for most of the
underground and mill work.*
Frank, 44, who went to the
operation from Buehcn's In New-

foundland, is applying much of
the experience he gained in min-
ing in Peru, Bolivia and the Phil-
ippines, under tropical condi-
tions similar to those of moun-
tainous Haiti.
Roads Problems
One example is seen in the ac-
cess roads. For most new' Cana-
dian fmines, an access road is cut
through virgin bush, or through
sparsely populated land.
Branching off the Gonaives-
Cap Haitien highway about 10
miles northeast of Gonaives, the
access road to the Consolidated
Halliwell property travels
through heavily populated land,
broken up into small lots.
Going into the Meme Valley
itself, it was a burro trail, wind-
ing up hills and across creeks,
with land 'ownership going back
through families to Haiti's battle
for independence in J804.
After the rights had been se-
cured, every foot of the road had
to be hacked out with pick and
shovel, before jeeps and trucks
could travel it. There was no
gravel, only huge boulders which
had to be blasted before a bull-
dozer could begin the leveling
The same problem exists at

Among innovations offered this year by the U.S.'s biggest-selling mo-
tor maker are thq first U.S. fuel injection system for a passenger-car
-optional at extra cost- and a new type torque converter automatic
transmission said to eliminate any trace of gear jerk.
Overall length of the cars is increased to 200 inches, although wheel.
bases remain at 115. And the appearance of extra length is added by
low lines and flared rear fenders. .
A choice of five basic engines is offered in the 1957 models .
straight six at 140 horsepower and four V8s ranging' in power rating
from 162 horses to a high of 283 in the Corvette V-8.
Displacement of the six-cylinder engine and the lowest-cost V-8s
remains at 235 and 265 cubic inches, respectively, but wider bore on
the bigger V-8s gives an over-square engine measured at 283 inches.
Exhaust manifolds, distributors, ignition and clutches are among the
engine and power train items on which Chevrolet engineers claim

Three Canadian companies are
exploring an area of 98 sq. miles,
south of Jean Rabel and about 30
'miles northwest of Consolidated
Halliwell's property in Northwest-
ern Haiti.

Sunday, November 18th 1956

Pending clarification of details
' ol the rights granted by the Go-
vernment of Haiti, work is being
confined to surface exploration
aind some drilling. J. S. Crosscom-
be is consulting engineer on the
property for both Haitian Copper
:nd Ogama Rocklaild.
Croinor Pershing last week put
three experienced Canadian pros-
pectors on its properly. Joint pros
pecting and drilling will be carri-
ed on by the companies to reduce
exploration expenses.



On Consolidated Hfalliwell's pro-
perty in Haiti, the ore zone occurs
in a tactite horizon, a metamor-
phosed limestone which has been
intruded-by a dioritic mass along
a northwesterly trending fault
The known, ore occurrences -,
23 in all-are localized by this
combination of intrusive and struck
ture along a strike length of over
five miles.

SThe main and only zone tested
intensively, at the Meme Valley,
occurs as a shallow dipping body
overlying the diorite and cover-
ing an area 1,000 ft. by 1,000 ft.
and as yet open to the north.
Thickness varies from 15 to 136.5
ft. Grade of' th6 entire zone is
2.4% copper.
The mineralization consists al-
most entirely of chilcopyrite and
bornite, with lesser pyrite and
chalcocite. On surface, the copper
is visually striking with the de-
velopment of the azurite and mal-
arbite hydroxides. The surface
oxidation zones are presently dis-
regarded in -favor of the primary
sulphide zones at depth.
Assays from a length of 61 ft.
in the tunnel from 590. to 651
ft averaged 3.2% copper over
the eight-foot square tunnel. One
lift: length averaged 5.63% eu.

Illiteracy MustI trO
Thinking people will agree that illiteracy is a number one -pro- &:/

nations. There is no better authority on this subject than Frank Lau-
bach, of world-wide fame. Through this man millions have been -,,
taught to read. We quote at length from his book,

Before a literacy 'compaign...posters could be' made and placed on
