A REVOLUTIONARY VACATION

Any resemblance between ac-

surprising. On only one thing do
all of us agree: Haiti was trs 4ma-

mours at fourth and sixth hand
and repeated them with embellish

listened to the French radio
broadcasts which none of us un-
derstood. Brilliantly we diagnos-

tuation. The wonderfully gracious
Haitians at the hotel listened pa-
tiently to our analyses of hhat

mnent and ",Why the hell don't you

The-first two days of the strike
didn't alarm us much. It was ra-
ther interesting, something to tell
the folks at home about. We wan-
' dered around Port-au-Prince with
money in our pockets and nothing
much to spend it on. No woman
would dream of buying anything
without first comparing shopp-
ing in all the stores. For a woman

ON BEING A MATURE PERSON
The richness or poverty of our lives depends upon our maturity.
Evety year, every eveot, offers us the, opportunity for mature or
One sign of growth in maturity i's 'our readiness to lebrn what is
expected of us under conditions of life that are changing every day.
What was suitable in the world as it was last year may not do at
all in the circumstances -of tomorrow.
In the smaller circle of our own personality, too, there are conti
btuing changes. None of us is altogether and always either brilliant
or stupid. The brightest of us have periods wheri we seem feeble-
minded, and the dullest of us are sometimes blessed with sharp wit.
Most of-us wish to be mature, because that seems to be the only
sthte in which we can cope with our problems.
Various authors have laid stress upon separate virtues included
in the maturity of a human being: responsibility, independence, gen-
erosity,, co-operativeness, goodwill, integrity, adaptability, and skill
in separating fact and fancy.
,Whatever. trait is emphasized,' the mature person will show skill
in handling the events and tests 'of life in such.a way as to' produce
the greatest possible amount of happiness with the smallest amount
of stre ss.......... .. .... ....... ....... .. ..
The mature person lives significantly for himself and for mankind.
He rejects tLife temptation to be always neutral or safe, to be a mere
invalid or a mhiicr in a protected corner. He is too busy with grati-
.fying work to engage in trifling things, and too well balanced to pay
attention to miracle workers and jugglers.
That is not a lazy life. The mature person is not passively receiv-
ing but is creatively acting. He has a sense pf relative values and
,a feeling for consequences. He confronts life kwith sohne boldness.
SOne principle that njarks minatuiity in any walk of life in busi-
ness,*in private life or ii national affairs -'is this: the determining
element is not so much what happens to a person but the way he
takes it. The responses to'life of a mature parson are of good qua-
lity and can be counted on.
The contrary state, .immaturity; is marked by adult-infantilism, in
which a person has reached maturity of physical development, but
remains an infant in' his response to the problems and obligations
WHAT ARE MATURE ACTIONS?.
The mIkture person tends not to be clumsy in his association with
other people. He thinks about how the thing he proposes to do will
affect his neighbours' lives. He seeks to give other people& room so
that they, too,' may mature. He has learned the important lesson that'
he who" walks in crowds nirust step aside, keep his elbows in, step
back or sidewise, or 6ven detour from the straight way, according
to what he encounters.
It is all very well to try, onep in a while, to think strictly personal
thoughts, but we quickly come to see that we live in relationships.
'Family' life belps our children to grow from stage'to stage of con-
fidence, skill, responsibility' and understanding. Our homes prepare
people for the larger' and more exacting relationships of a world
where social and political sense have not progressed as far as have
scientific and technical skills.
The mature person has graduated from home and school with some
awareness of the requirements of society. He wants to share in the
human enterprise of getting out of. the jungle frame of mind. of build-
ing a community wherein he may grow. He' develops from'the stage
of thinking: 'Please help me-, through .I can take care of myself.
to 'Pleas leta'me'help you.'
Sharing is a vital part of maturing. Most of the significance we at-
tain grows out of our contribution to the lives of others. The person
in an executive position flom the president of a great company down
to the foreman of a small gang, puts his imprint on history through'
the people under his direction. He,builds their strengths and reduces
their limitations. He gives them opportunities to become their own
most mature selves. This can be, as Stephen Vincent Ben6t remarked
in one of his essays, the mbst conspicuous enterprise of the human
S ............ ......... .L .......
Down through the ages, human life has relied upon an instinctive
sense of obligation on the part of those most generously endowed
This is born of the sternest racial law we know: the perpetuation of
any group demands that all the varied resources within that group
be released to most effective use. It is as the human race grows into
fullest 'aplcatioi of this demand of ,life that it matures. And a
person remains immature, whatever his age, so long as Hie thinks of
himself as an exception to the law.
It is not enough: however, to give .lip service to such a belief. The
title of a book by Harryiand Boniaro Overstreet, just published (W.
W. Norton & Co. Inc., New York) is significant of the meaning of
maturity. It is: The Mind Goes Forth. The mature person is not liv-
ming in a room lined with mirrors but in a sun room with windows.
The peron wfio is completely wrapped up in himself makes only
a small package. I

Community Weekly Publshed Sunday Morning
EDITOR-PUBLISHER BERNARD DIEDERICH
GERANT-RESPONSABLE PAUL E. NAJAC
The events in Haiti these days make unhappy reading for
all Americans %who know thta attractive, carefree and unfor-
tunate country. It is a great pity that things snould have come
to such a shameful pass, but nothing is to be gained by gloss-
ing over what is happening. President Paul Magloire and his
handful of supporters should know what the people ot the
United States and, undoubtedly, those of Latin America think
about',what he has done.
The President's term was up on Dec. 6, although he could
constitutionally have stayed in office until the elections due
next April 30. His political opposition was behaving with de-
corum and a' rue sense of their duties as citizens trying to
carry on a legal and popular continuity of government. At
first they were assured by general Magloire that they could
campaign freely. A fev weeks ago he ordered them to stop
and they did so. Then he trumped up the charge that the
opposition was challenging his .night to stay in office until
May 1. On this excuse he staged -what was rotbing 'more or
less than a crude comn Ca!
Unfortunately, Haiti i in an absolutely desperate economic
situation and the people ate in gfeat distress. There has been
a disastrous drought in the north igs' and 'too much .rain in
other parts. Hurricane Hazel caused, such bavoc in October,
1954, that the country wag almost devastated. The coffee
crop-the only good cash crop of Haiti- wds poor this year,
and anyway, France, which normally buys it, now is deprived
of spare dollars by the Suez oil crisis.. Tourism, which has
been a saving grace, is bound t6 suffer this winter from the
disordersnow taking plne.
Some observers blame the high cost of Haiti's Artibonitc
hydroelectric and irrigation scheme, whicy is taking much
longer and costing far more than was anticipated. However.
it is a good scheme that can yet bear rich fruit, but not with
the inefficiency and-according to' reliable accounts-the
corruption that has been taking pjace.
The United. States has helped a great ,deal with grants-in-
aid and Point Four, and the United Nations has also done
much. President Magloire himself started out with real ef-
frts to inprbve the conditions of bfhi peopI.& And noiw he is
ending likef so many military leaders in Latin America. it is,
inded, a gre4t pity. (New Yofk Tfines Thunda),

Your article on Gourgue and
the Centre d'Art gave me much to
think about the fate of the ta-
bleaux that are being sold to
collectors and tourists. Who
knows that there are not a pumb-
er of masterpieces among them?
ln this connection, I suggest
that the Art. Center makes photo-
copies of all the canvasses before
they are turned over to buyers.
In all Art Museums aboard, visi-
tors may buy the reproductions
of masterpieces on post cards or
their exact reproductions. I don't
see why the same.could not be
done in Haiti. This would greatly
help the artists whose financial
situation is not always bright and
also foster the. diffusion of art
since' the ar.t exhibits are visited
only by a few- the same small
group of intellectuals and artists.

the principal distributors of the
essentials for making chloratee..
Chlorate is prepared with potas-

ing a package of chlorate.
Despite the vigilance of the po-
lice who have always forbidden
this dangerous game of fireworks,
"chlorate. blasts out in almost
every neighborhood from Decem-
ber 1st. '
Since the pharmacies are no
longer allowed to sell explosives
of this nature to children, new
imported firecrackers have made
their appearance on the market
The most common is the ,mitrail-
le; which is very dangerous if not
properly handled as it explodes
when it hits the ground or is
thrown against a wall. Another
variety of the "mitraille. has a
small wick. exploding only when
the wick is lit. Since these are
less dangerous, the kids mischie-

the revival oft his tradition was
credited to several enterprising
Haitians who manufactured the
toys with a minimum of security,
only to have them disappear from
the market during the world
strife and the post war period.
Also gone with World War II
are the Christmas lanterns that
once were the most popular Xmas
toys in Haiti.
A decade -ago youngsters were
all enthusiasms in collecting ciga-
rette boxes and cardboard 'as the
1 i i
Christmas season approached. But
the most difficult thing was to
find a nail with square-eqd, since
nails were not sold by. the piece
but by the pound. The square-end

imagining subjects to be designed
on the boards, and working out
sketches and .legendes- to bb
drawn and written on them. This
work sometimes revealed many
hidden talents, for the boys would
always compete, in order to sur-
pass each other.
The pictures were drawn on six
or sometimes eight pieces of card
board in a double space system so
that the pictures could be cut and
the thin colored papers glued ov-
erthe holes giving the impression
of,a /stained window glass.
The Christmas lanterns were
built in the shape of a small house
with two froft doors, artistically
decorated. The tops of the lant-
erns had the V-shape form of the
'common Haitian country acaille-,
but remained uncovered to let
the air come in. On one side of
the lantern written in big letters
(some even use gothic letters)
were the words -Vive Noel- (long
live Christmas) and on the other
side Joyeux Noel* (Merry Christ
-nas). The other parts represent
illegoric figures. At night the

The boys tied a small cord t

Some characters sometimes lay

So, starting with the shortest
trips first, here are a few boiled
down suggestions for travel in
AND LE PERCHOIR
(Ler Pershawh) The Perch)
The most spectacular view in
Haiti: 2,000 square miles of
Haiti spread out before you -
a miracle of color, form, sun-
light end shadow! Port-au-Prin-
ce lies at your feet (3.000 feet
below) like a giant map. To get
to this breath-taking, unbelie-
eable and unforgettable view
3 u ride 10 miles from Port-au-
Prince, through the pretty little
town of Petionville, then up a
winding mountain road, borde-
red by flaming giant pointsetta
plants. You pass the tratched
roof habitations of peasants and
arrive in rural Haiti, where life
goes on as it has for centuries
as if the city below did not
exist. LE PERCHOIR, modern
oasis on the mountain, offers
the facilities of its restaurant
and night club, its Terrace Bar,
and its branch ofJLa 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 to eat.
AND LA CITADELLE
This trip is an experience in
history and geography. It is an
adventure and a pilgrimage
which you must not miss.
If you have the time, we re-
commend that you take three
days pnd go to Cap-Haitien by
car. Its about 170 miles and a
minimum of 5 or 6 hours, but
you should take about 8 hours
to enjoy it most. So to one of
Cap Ha'itien's comfortable ho-
tels. For the night, go to the
Citadelle the next day, retur-
ning to Port-au-Prince the third
day. Eevry mile and every
hour of this trip will be full of
If you are pressed for time,
you can fly to the Cape min 45
minutes, and can make the en-
-ire pilgrimage in a single day.
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
Haitian provincial sea-coast
towns waiting for better days
to come. Jacmel has a flavor
of its own. To get there you
can take the easy way by air,
or the adventurous way by
road, about 60 miles, practical-
ly every mile of which has a
river crossing. Near Jacmel is
one of Haiti's most beautiful
beaches, Raymond les Baims.
Two hotels there, clean aad
comfortable. Plan to stay over-
night at least.
FORGET DES PINS
In sos'th-east Haiti, a drive f
some 60 miles from Port-ir
Prince is a beautiful pine forest
at an elevation of about 7,009
feet. To" arrive at this 150,000
acre forest, one drives through
the rich sugar cane lands of
the Cul de Sac plain, then
through and arid region of eat
tus to the edge of Lake Mang
Sumatre, famous salt lake, ia
tested with crocodiles, lying on
the frontier of the Dominica
Republic. There the climb corn.
mences to the cool Pine Forest.
This trip will take all day,
returning to your hotel for
cocktails and dinner. Passing
through a number of small Hai-
tian towns and villages, it af-
fords a variety of impressloNs,
of Haitian life and geography.
Take a wrap for your visit -

Elegance and culture pride and grace conversation in French,
Spanishd German and English and the mystic message of the drums spin
a web of enchantment for visitors and pleasure-seekers in the -Petit Parist
of the Caribbean.
With gaiety as the keynote of night life in Port-au-Prince where the
atmosphere of a metropolis is fused with the artistic primitive, visitors are
in for a precious gem-to enter into their book of souvenirs.
Whether nibbling at canapes and
caviar, or enjoying the best in
French cuisine, by Swiss Cook
ZeUer, guests dine at a 3,000 feet
altitude and admire the emerald bay
from Le Perch6ir, Haiti's smartest
restaurant, air-conditioned by na-
ture. From comfortable places on
the breazeswept terrace, the pano-
rama takes in the stopping of the
car at the Dominican border 20
miles away. Whether it's a thick
state-side steak or an ethereal Rum
Soluffle, the superbly prepared and
elegantly served food at Le Perchoir
leaves diners with a sense of being
well cared for.
The Casino International, a swank
establishment run by a staff im-
ported from Italy is one of the major
attractions of the Capital. It's famed
night club .Smokie Joe's. enlarged
for this season will continue its po-
licy of presenting famous foreign
and local artists. Rhumbas, mambos
and rQromantic Haitian .meringues are
danced to the rythmic beat of a top
local orchestra, while excellent Ita-
lian food is to be had. The gaming
tables at the Casino are run under
the supervision of the Haitian Go-
vernment. The Beau Rivage Hotel
located opposite Is run by the same
management and is famous for its
Italian food and wines.
Near the Palmist Section of the
Exposition Grounds is the Open Air
