The Era of Freedom of Speech
With freedom of speech and
expression no longer a 'pch6
mortel in the country, the people
are enjoying an expected fiesta
of openly expressing their opi-
nions.
The man on the street no long-
er lowers his voice to a whisper
in his criticisms or disagreement
with the new measures of reform.
He lifts his voice and speaks au-
dibly concerning his convictions,
without fear of reprisals.
New journals and newspapers
are appearing every day, and old
papers that had been forced to
stop publication under the old
regime are back on the scene: So
far those who came forward to
join the press were Oedipe,, ,La
Libert4, Le Souverain,, (Mi-
meographed) 'Courrier d'Haiti,
and 'Le Cri des Jeunes.'

Ohe Er& of Freedom of Action
The week proceeding the Ma-
gloire 'coup d'etat*, candidates
of the opposition had ventured
forth on campaign tours in the
provinces at great personal risks.
Former Chief of Police Marcaisse
Prosper had summoned Senator
D6joie, Dr. Duvallier and Prof.
Daniel Fignol4 to headquarters
upon their return to the Capital.
Holding separate interviews with
each, Prosper warned them that
they should caution their parti-
sans to 'keep it calm,, in their
meetings and elsewhere. During
the interview with Dr. Duvallier
he accused him and his partisans
of having ambushed Mr. Fignole,
on the Leogane Road, the night
previous, and that without the vi-
gilance of the police they would

Haiti Draws Record
Tourist Patronage;
Expands Facilities
Haiti's phenomenal popularity
Sas a vacationland for U.S. and Ca-
nadian tourists has spurred )a far-
reaching program of expansion
which will provide next season's
-visitors with more hotel accommo-
dations, more entertainment, more
things for the Visitor to ,see and
do and more shopping opportuni-
ties than ever before in the histo-
ry of the colorful little Caribbean
republic.
According to Pierre Chauvet,
director of the National Tourist
Office, when the current year.of
peak tourist gowth comes to an
end in December at least 70,000
visitors will have been tallied, an
increase of about 20 per cent
over 1955.1
To accommodate the influx, he
reported, new hotels and addi-
tions to existing hotels have boos-
ted available rooms to nearly 700,
deluxe and first class, in the Port-
.au-Prince and suburban Petion-
ville area. This represents a hotel
capacity increase of some 55 per
cent for the last three years. Iz
historic Cap Hiatien, on the North
Coast, room capacity has also in-
. creased about 30 per cent.
Recreational facilities have also
been expanding at a spectacular
rate. In addition to the refreshing
array of swimming pools that lend
color and fun to all of the lead-
ing hotels, a program of beach de-
velopment is moving ahead by
leaps and bounds. Only a half
hour from the Capital is the site
of a new beach colony which will
provide cabanas and cottages'for
the coming winter season, and
later on a 100-room beachfront ho-
tel. And just a few miles-further
along the sparkling blue waters of
Pbrt-au-Prince Bay another fledgl-
ing development for relaxation
and sport is already in operation.
After dark Haiti now offers di-


vertissement that matches in va-
riety the best that can be found
in the cosmopolitan cities of the
Western Hemisphere and Europe
made even more tempting by
Haiti's own distinctive flavor and
pulsating tempo. Throughout the
week hotels in the city, along the
Bay and in the cool mountain re-
treats of Petionville, present spe-
cial entertainment programs. In
addition, intimate night clubs vie
with each other in drawing heavy
patronage /from visitors and local.
residents alike.
Shopping, an increasingly im-
portant ingredient for an enjoy-
able vacation', is having a field
day in Haiti thanks to recent le-
gislation which permits exciting
merchandise from all over the
world to be sold at free-port pri-
ces. Included are those items par-
ticularly sought by tourists per-
fumes, watches, cashmeres, crys-
talware, china and silver, among
many others. Haiti's own exquisite
mahogany, sisal and textile crafts-
manship provides -additional lure
for gift purchases. I
Located at the hub of key air
routes from New York, Miami,
New Orleans, Havana and such
nearby islands as Jamaica, Domi-
nican Republic and Puerto Rico,
Haiti is now more easily accessi-
ble than ever before. Regular
steamship service is also available
out of New York and Miami. Arid
during the winter season luxury
cruise ships call at Port-au-Prince
and Cap Haitien, among the most
popular ports on the entire Car-
ibbean circuit.

The Tourist Season must be salvaged!!!
An individual tourist campaign must be gotten underway,

Haiti has many thousands of friends and well-wishers ab-

Let's invite the American public to outr back-to-norm-

from the cultured elite to the proud-stepping peasant than
in any oiher country in the world.
Our new Constitutional Government officials could invite

see for themselves and then when they return home make
their own report,-to their reading public. This Caribbean na-

WORLD'S FIRST AIRLINE ROYALO DUTCI


GOOD COVERAGE OF
coldD, REVOLUTION
Dear Editor,
Think you for your 'reportage.
on the general sit-d6wh strike -
the first attempted in Haiti and
so successful carried out, that
contributed much to overthrow
the military regime of Paul E. Ma-
gloire.
Since your paper is read all
over the world, there is no doubt
that the Haitian people passive
resistance will be a'symbol for
all oppressed peoples. The Hunga-
rian uprising has slown that vio-
lence against a stronger enemy
does not _pay in our time when
dictators and totatita*%an states
have at their disposal all kinds of
weapons to crush a revolution.
Once again, as the .N.Y. Times.
wrote, -The Haitians have shown
their capacity for taking things in
hand and setting to rights in their
democratic way.,. All this was
done with bare hands, but with
also high moral courage. Fot a
country whose history is remar-
kably stained with blood, /this
strike is. the evident proof that
the freedom and peace loving
Haitians have grown mature in
democratic life.
Let's hope ,that the fruits of
this 'Cold Revolution' as the
'Sun' calls it will not be'wasted
id vain demagogy. and anarchy.
In closing- this letter, dear Edit-
or, I feel obliged to pay homage
to the memory of the great Ma-
iatma Gandhi, the very incarna-
tion of passive resistance and


one of the greatest benefactors of
mankind.
Very Truly,
(S): Patriote.

A Wonderful Tourist
Dear Mr. Editor,
I have just re-read the article
of an innocent tourist on the now
famous 1956 Haitian Revolution.
Mildred Wertheim's 'A Revolu-
tionary Vacation- published in
the last issue of 'Haiti-Sun,, I
am sure, will give a boost to our
Tourism which was endangered
y the sad news of revolution in
Haiti.
It is surprising to learn that
the same people who in 1804 ac-
cepted to challenge the armies.of
Napoleon by responding violence
to violence, has changed the 'edu-
p6 tete boul& caille' tactics .to the
-passive resistance, system.
The author of that article must
be praised for her great under-
standing, for I imagine she had to
cook her own meals when the ho-
tel employees joined the strike.
After all Haiti was *tr6s magx.i-
fique, for hen. Mildred Werthein
who confessed that she feels her-
self a part of Haiti's' history be-
cause she has witnessed the birth
of a new era of democracy in our
little country deserves the respect
and the admiration of all Hai-
tians.

Santa Claus Visits The Horth West

A CHRISTMAS TALE BY CHRISTIAN DAUPHIN PROFESSOR AT LYCEE T. GUILBAUD


Once upon a tinie, in Haiti,
then called' Quisqueya, ruled
a Queen named ANACAONA the
Grdat, It was around 'December,
we don't' remember exactly the
year= but the West India Queen
became quite ,orried about the
Fabulous amount of requests sent
confidentially to her by the little
boys and the little girls of the
whole island. These children had
heard of a certaini old, good and
divine creature, lovely with his
long gray beard, his"musqueteen
mustache, his reddish cheeks, his
nose shaped like a West Indian
pepper. Furthermore they were
told. that on Christmas Eve, this
friendly personage traditionally
'took a- lot of nice gifts to all
'good children air Qver the world.
-No 'wonder why these kids were
.so anxious to receive the visit of
such a 'rich Magis,, the uncle of
a god, according, to some gootb-
sayers. 'And so the *West Indian
youngsters took the. initiaive, this
year, to make an appeal tod, their
powerful queen. Anacaona, how-
pver, like any other people of the
island, had never seen personal-

him yet. Nevertheless the
teenagers decided to be.. for
Soffe the sweetest children ever
to ixist on this planet so 'the
Queen could send their long re-
quest list with a cordial invitation,
to this honorable guest, richer
A1- than all the Aztecs, Mayat a40.
Incas Emperors. Anadaona, alth-
..ough she wished fervently also to
mq .eet Tonton Noel, had no way to
let him have the message of the
S children.-In final resort, she sent
-' out a convocation to all the wise
people and soothsayers 'of her
errltory..for an imAortant Con-
gress, in order to find out the
most ingenious mean to contact
Tonton Santa.


At the beat of the tamtam and.
to the sound, of tremendous hoo-.
loohoo, tihe excited population
gathered hin the vast. oen' market
ilace named: Cautliw c. What
S a tohubohu! Everyboel claimed
that he knew the 'bst'". way. to
SIake Tonton Noel drop by their
unknown land on Christmas Eve.
Some astrologs were arguing with
Zinglin, an old sailor ,taftAed' from
head to bottom. He had travelled
a. great deal end passed -for very
clever. His cap carried 'more fea-
thers thai any other chief. Sud-
denly he yielded out-with sar-
casm: 'You -mature' People, what
fools are you. Until when 'will you
keep kidding? How do you except
Santa to visit Haiti and specially
the North West? Can't you rea-
lize, he continued ironically, that
S Santa Clauss will not be able to
land with his sleigh and his train
of angels in a place where there
is no snow. Beside that, he is ve-
ry scared of loupgarous and zom-
his., A sophisticated' brohaha was
the reply to such a statement.
'What is he talking about? Who
is Santa?a questioned someone
half asleep and disturbed in his
siesta. 'The man says Santa Fe


Train, explained a glamarous in-
dian woman who was always
dreanming of a vacation trip to the
East. 'But what did he mean by
snow?* asked an literate old
Cops. And you could hear much
more quaint questions and rum-
ors rising up in the assembly
and speeding like ocean waves in
fury. Impertubable Zinglin the
mariner tried then to explain that
in different parts of the world
they use different words to name
Santa Claus. He pointed out that
Tonton Noel, or whatever you
want to call him,' will not cone
to Haiti where there is a perpe-
tual spring and not enough white
skin people. According to -the le-
gend, he drops only in the brick
chimney of som6 big and high
houses in the very cold country
where drop at 'the same time a
lot of white particles called snow.
No word can describe this strange
thing smoother than cotton, whit-
er than mutton milk, lighter than
ginger tea froth, brighter than
the foam flouting over Bassin Zim
'falls and the meerschaum of the
Caribbean Sea.
The West Indian -Population was
amazed, but they felt also sad ,be-
cause in their hut and ajoupa
there were no brick chimneys. Fi-
nally a minister of the cult ob-
jected -that Santa.'could land in
the North. ~st of Haiti despite
the absence of snow and brick
chimneys. -Tonton Noel, declar-
ed. Dydime. with authority, leaves

those who did not understand the
meaning of a.. Myth, approved
without restriction. Then Wanga
also inspired, exclaimed in a
transe:' Linguesou Quetzalcoalt,

We must implate seventy 'seven
black sheeps, seventy black and

deeply impressed by the leader's
demand knelt down and bent
their heads as a sign of accept-
ance without noticing that Wanga
pretended before that nothing
could go .out or. come in the
Earth. But they uttered hysterical
and delirous hurrahs with a round
of applause. Samba very happy
that her .motion did not face any
veto gladly submitted this luring
invitation so Tonton Noel could
not resist the temptation of vi-
siting Haiti and especially the
North West.

NAP TA U LA KAY NU S PU U
VINM A HAITI' NA NODWESLA.
Which means: We are waiting


for you in our home. You. ought
to come to the country of the
mountains in the North West. A
clever West Indian remarked how-
ever that Papa Noel might not
be able to read that lingo as
therd were right in Haiti so many
people who could not read the
dialect they all talk. 'The Crowd.
after deliberation decided first
,to "make the writing.of their dia-
lect in international phonedtic man
datory in all schools, then they
choose Zinglin as a well known
polyglot td translate their greet-
ings to Santa; in Greek, latin,
French, Spanish, English, German,
Russian. What fun- and a sur-
'prise for all 'to hear pronounced
while writing these stange words:
'KAL EMERA, SALVE, BIENVE-
NUE, BIENVENIDO, WELCOME,
WILLKOMMEN, ZDRASSTIE.. It'
seemed quite incredible that such
different and funny sounds could
express the sanpe. idea.

, It was the night before Christ-
.tas. Tonton Santa at a supersonic
speed on his way from the old
Europe to the New Continent was
chasing"rainbows like a. flying
saucer. But a sudden hurricane
named Hazel forced him to izag
In the tropical zone. Taking a
chance, he nose-4ived under the
equatorial line. What a'surprise!
He hard the beat of remote
drums and the vaporous melody
of a singsong. Exquisite was the
flagrance of the air saturated
with night-jasmin nectar. From
time to time Santa could perceive
mixed with the Jight shudder of
Coconut trees and tropical palms,
some )syncopated pulsations like
coming fromn voodoo drums and
these mystic chants made him
fall in extasia. You also, you
should thrill with delight in your
soul and even in your flesh. There
was so much moonlight flooding
in a fairy bay down where the
stars seemed to take voluptuous-
ly their vesperal 'Oath, Was San-
ta just, dreaming of a magic land
where'takes place an endless fies-
ta sponsored by Mother Nature
in the most spectacular scenery?
Santa rubbed his reddish nose to
make sure that he was awake,
then he adjusted carefully his te-
lescope. Now he could see distinct-
ly just over the Caribbean Sea
a bunch of balloons. The old man
suspicious of some floating hydro-
gen bombs, skeptical and ready to
jettison, he secured his life sav:
ing belt and pushed down the
throttle of his jet sleigh as far as
ihe could. But while crossing the
sound barrier and overtaking the
balloons, he distinguished some
characters which at first glance
looked like hebrew. He put on


the brakes; this discovery excited
his curiosity. This old timer was
very versed in semantics and he
could decipher even hieroglyph.

'Gee! exclaimed Santa reading the
cordial invitation, Thaiti, no Hai-
ti? Never heard that and he re-
peated: NAP TA U NA NODWES-
LA. Well! he concluded with a
pretty and staccato laugh which
made his cute embompoint swing,
at-the tempo of the West Indian
drums, People over there might
,hot look and act like my other
folks, but they are all God's cre-
atures. Why not pay them a visit
too? Let see if there is any Ham
in that country and he started'
calling over the radio: 'Hello CQ
RH Santa palling. 'Suddenly he
heard, a woman voice whispering:
QRA 5 Peter X Ray QTC .Nap
Tan U Na Nodwesla'. ,Roger
said Santa, coming down.' Then
he fixid s6me wheels to his. jet
sleigh full of toys; he 'tacked
about and finally saw a beautiful
valley irrigated by three rivers.
That was the North West and,
he landed there safely. It seemed
that all the people of Quisqueil
w e r e expecting him. A n d
to take this distinguished guest
to Cauthemoc Market Place, there
was an, escort of beautiful young
marabouts. Nick wearing an exo-
tic straw hat and parading on a
burro ever had a better time in


of Haiti
his whole life To brush up his
indian, he inquired about the
meaning of the island name. The
country of the mountains' answer-
ed Zinglin. This latter then crum-
pled a banana tree leaf in his
hand to show that there were as
many mountains in Haiti as there
were wrinkles in the 'leaf; and fold-
ing up half way the forefinger
like on the trigger of a fire arm
he clenches the other fingers of
his hand with the exception of
the small finger which remained
straight, he raised up his first
to announce triumphantly: Here
is Haiti.' Bravo 'said Santa
wondering if this native had some
training in Audio Visual Methods
of Teaching. Nick was still cover-
ed with some white flakes or ra-
ther some snow, but the little
West Indians thought it was a very
good stuff and called it Fresco,.
Santa was invited to drink some
ginger tea and join the dance to
warm up. He learned quite fast
some vodoo, tcha tcha teha and
meringue steps. But he had a cer-
tain way to mark the tempo by
repeating ,Bi Bap, Bi Bap which
made the naked' teenagers laugh
heartly. Taking advantage of the
hulabaloo, one of them called
Tet Mato approached Santa and
poured in his mahogany bowl of
tea a good shot of the most de-
licious tropical rum. Old Nick
mumbled then a surprising sound
to the West Indians 'Rum mm de
Luxe, The population started
laughing again and that continu-
ed all night long. The company of
this good Tonton so candid and. o'
generous was a' real treat. Santa_
Claus -also distributed a, lot., 'o
gifts not' onjy to the. children but
also to- the 'whole population.
Even Zulu and Bozo .who never
received before Chistmas bonus.
;got two big. envelopes' with their'
names 'written in gold: In retn.'
Santa was given wanga 'dolls, putr-
ses, belts, shoes, hats.and a lot of
other items made of sisal, hand
made ,embroidery, skirts painted
by .priitiie Westindian artists,
Wanga negress powder etc. etc.
All the West Indians were happy
and Santa Claus also.
It was Christmas Eve, and we
don't remember exactly the year;
but in the North West, of Haiti
you might find someone' to show
you the place where Santa landed
in 'the Caribbean and where he
had such a,good time.

Dear Editor,
Many Thanks for Haiti Sun.'s
timely coverage of the recent
events that shook the Nation. As
the electoral campaign start off
again, I am all crazy about the
oratorical jousts that 'are taking
place now through the radio sta-
tions. But, although I would not
like to loose the pleasure of listen-
ing to the Haitians speak fluent
French at the manner of the great
French -Tribuns', I think that
the speeches should be done in
Creole (with respect to the. pu-
risfs) which is understood by the
people, for "Creole Parle. Creole
Compren')
Futhermore, a speaker, in ad-
dressing the people in Creole,
will be forced to say the whole
truth, the naked truth for the Hai-
tian language is less souple, than
the French which can be used so
ably by the candidates to hide
their intentions.

that he probably would call this

ton and brother-in-lawv of Gen.
Paul E. M pgloire, who was forc-
ed to retire as President, would
be recalled. But a large-scale shift
of diplomatic representatives was
not contemplated.
M. Pierre-Louis said that Haiti's
'economic and financial position
was such that foreign financial as-
si.tance would be -very useful.,
He said the country's external
debt rose $48,000,000 between the
time General 'Magloire took office
in 1950 and when he went into
exile last Thursday, rising from
$12,000,000 to $60,000,000.
There was no estimate as yet
as to Haiti's internal debt..,
The Provisional president said
that, at his first Cabinet meeting
this morning, -he authorized the
payment of December salaries to


all civil service employes. It had: La 'Secretairerie d'Etat des Finances

Sunday. December 23rd 1956 HAITI SUN PAGE 19


(Continued from last week)

The foreigner who just debarks
in the country at first marvels at
the natural beauty of our isle, and
is strongly impressed by our af-
fable and hospitable manners. He
is not long, however; in becoming
interested in our economical and
other-, problems, and naiv e I y
suggests to you the formulas sim-
plistes, which according to him
will raise the standard of living
of the population as if by magic.
One of these kind visitors told
me recently:'......my friend, it
would no| take more than
$150.000,000 (one hundred fifty
million dollars) to solve all the
problems confronting your adora-
ble country.' This is certainly
only a .bagatelle' (trifle) if you
compare this sum with the loans
being made these days to certain
nations. However, my excellent
friend could not give me any prac-
tical means of obtaining this in-
significant sum which for us is al-
most fabulous.

Fairy Tales

It is not only the foreigners who
have' this illusion concerning the
rapid solution to all our problems.
Numerous are the Haitians also
who boast that they know what
should be done in order that all
the citizens learn to read and
write overniglit; how to have first
class highways stretching over the
country, and how like in fairy
tales one beautiful morning every-
one would- awake to opulence.
They enthusiastically describe for
you that pays de cocagne, (land
of plernty) which exists only in
their iinsgination. Once their little
speech' is over, and satisfied 'at
having found someone to listen
to their little story, they go off
to vegetate in paresse.2

They Can't See The Forest For
The Trees

When for any reason whatsoev-
er the 'type of Haitian we have
just been talking about spends a
certain time abroad, he returns
with a still more bizarre attitude
towards the country. He bowls
you over with abracadabrant,
comments on Haiti which he un-
ceasingly compares with the other


*countries be has visited. Accord.
ing to him, nothing has changed.
With much "aplomb" he states: ,a
la mal nous mal. (gosh, ire we
Badly off). To listen to him you
I wonder what he -has done with
his sense of observation. Why
doesn't he wear eyeglasses..?
That is the only excuse that you
can possibly concede him lor not
seeing the rapidity with which
the country is being developed
and transformed in the last de-
cade. In fact, without great effort
he ought to be able to admire
everywhere the public i utility
works, and embellishment of the
country; the beautifully *sphalt-
ed roads, new industries, etc, etc,
Evolution on More Tangible Plane
The country has also considera-
bly evolved on a less tangible
plane. Citizens froma!l social le
vels are working with enthusiasm
for the bettering of their condi-
tion of life, and with success. The
Haitian's sense of responsibility
has greatly developed. And every-
where can be noticed a desire and
will to go forward which is evi-
denced openly everywhere. An in-
tegration 'of common sense, and
a reintegration in the homeland
would be of every utility for this
type of Haitian.

aLe Grand Seigneurs

We nokw pass on to the arrogant,
stupid and vain individual who
believes himself to be a supeqor
being. He is continually trying to
draw attention to his person. The
reasons that cause him to act in
this manner are as fallacious and
full of 'aberrations, as his own
composite personality. He is so
swelled up with pride and vanity
that any collaboration with him
at all is materially impossible. He
will listen to no one, will accept
no suggestion let alone receive
,.rders from anyone whatsoever.
He loses his head easily, and gets
all heated up over nothing as he
is over-sensitive. However, under
adversity all these pretensions
of being the 'grand seigneur, drop
and he becomes submissive it
cannot be said that he does so
with grace and flexes without
pudeur before the caprices of the'
one he is counting on to extend
him -la planche de salut- (a help-
ing hand). At any rate you should


F,


beware of his sudden submission.
Often this is but a 'leurre.
(trick). To justifyy his temporary
-about-face", he will often say. to
his friends: -qa ou %',I moin 'fe,
map defend moin aVec YO.' (what
iO you expect me to do. I have
to keep on the good side of
THEM). Often the parents of such
a phfienomenon have sacrificed to
send him abroad with the hope
of futhering his education. While
abroad he passed himself off as
a. South American, a Cuban, a
Frrnchman, etc., but for unavo-
wable reasons he was never a
Haitian. Nothing surprising in
this attitude, for even in his
own country he lives as a foreign-
ef does not interest himself
in anything, ignores hiscivic du-
ties, and often wonders to him-
self what he can possibly have in
common with this mass milling
around him. The annoying side of
this individual is that he has solid
ties with this mass. Papa and' ma-
ma.are often the first,to pay the
consequences of the inconsequep-
ces of this individual who has
somehow' inherited much of this
from them. More than once they
have told him that he bears the
name of one jof ths most impor-
Itant families of Haiti, and they
have done everything to make
him understand the privileges
that this big name entitles him
to, so that now the poor guy be-
lieves he can do anything he
pleases.

Like Father-Like Son
Take a look at him moving
about in this cosmopolitan center.
If he pretends not to see you it
is because he is talking with a
agros blanc,a (an important fo-
reigner) and he Is 'fraid that_ a
too familiar gesture towards you
will create a bad impression. Why?
He just doesn't know. In the case
where by hazard he is obliged to
introduce you to this important
foreigner, he feels obliged to ex-
plain to Uhs personage that you
speak five languages, have been
to Europe, you play the piano, etc.
He thinks this ought to justify his
relations with 'you. Deep inside of
him he has never ceased to re-
gard you as an inferior. So it is
that he would like that here in
this country there should be two
categories of citizens one to

Ex-Ministers
Summer Home
Burnt To Ground
The summer vacation home in
Fermathe of Roland Lataillade
ex-Under-Secretary of the Interi-
or was destroyed by fire on the
night of December 14th about
10:00 P.M.
According to the caretaker of
the house, an automobile carrying
people from Petionville or Port-
au-Prince sprayed gasoline on the
wooden walls, ignited it, and heP,
was awakened by the noise of the
closing of the doors of the auto-
mobile when it departed. The ca-
retaker said he rushed from his
caille to see the house enveloped
in flames and a single car leav-
ing downhill hurriedly. He saw
no license-plate on the car.
The house and its furnishings,
valued at possibly $15,000.00 are
completely destroyed, the roof
and most walls fallen in. A re-
construction of the events indicat-
ed that the avenging car ascend-
ed the 'Kenscoff. road above the
Lafaillade house, turned and
quietly coasted down to its posi-
tion in front of the house. All
wires entering the house were cut
before the gasoline was ignited.

FINEST CAR ON THE
ROAD TODAY


Chevrolet's 1957 models went on display at SHASA's showrooms
longer, lower, more powerful and with more variety in style and pol-
or than ever before. I
Among 'innovations offered this year' by the U.S.'s biggest-sejling
motor maker are the first U.S. fuel injection system for a. passenger-
car -optional at extra cost- and a new type torque converter auto-
matic transmission said to eliminate any trace of gear jerk.
Overall length of the cars is increased to 200 inches, although wYheel-
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 a
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, hut wider bpre on
the bigger V-8s gives- an over-square engine measured at 283 inches.
Exhaust manifolds, distributors, ignition and clutches are along
the engine and power train items on which Chevrolet engineers claifn
1957 improvements. .
The Turboglide automatic transmission, featuring a single forward
driving position, consists of three turbines and two planetary gearsets
combined with a variable pitch stator and the conventional torque con-
vertor pump.
A total of 460 model-color combinations are offered a.third more
than in 1956, and thee are 16 solid and 15 two-tone color choices.
Windshields are bigger and instruments are concentrated under a
dash panel hood.

Antonio Joseph, considered Hai-
ti's leading modern 'non-primiti-
ve' painter will hold his fourth
One-man show at the Centre d'Art
next Friday, December 28th.
Artist Joseph's show, will be
the 118th Exhibition of the Centre
Sd'Art and it Is expected to be one
of' the best attended in'the Galle-
ry's history.
The first Haitian artist ever to,
receive a Guggenheim Fellow-
ship (1953) for creative painting,
Joseph has applied for another
Guggenheim for this coming year.
Among the prominent Antonio
Joseph sponsors in the US. is the
famous playwright Arthur Miller
who has a-large 'Antonio Joseph'
hanging in his Brooklyn work-
shop.' .,,
RBemy Bastien, one of the foun-
ders of the Centre d'Art, has
written the foreword to the cata-
logue of Joseph's coming exhibi-
tion. Mr. Bastien writes:

bute in water colors in 1944, ant,

.I prepared 20 canvasses for

18., said painter Antonio Joseph
before outlining his life and ca-
reer to your reporter this week.
Born in Baharona, in the Domi-
nican Republic, of .Haitian parents,
Antonio attended the Escuela
Iraduada No. 2 de' Varones,
vhere he learned the craft of a
sailor and showed great talent in
playing the bombadino (Oghi-
cleide). His father died when he
was 5 years old and his mother
had to work hard to raise her two
boys and one girl. Antonio whose

derstand he recalls was his young
compatriots' passion for football.
He has been accustomed to base-
ball in the east.
Antonio said he was *.,abonn&
to a -Mexican magazine, which
from time to time published the
reproduction of great paintings.
It was in this way his vocation for
painting arose.
Everyday, after work in his
tailor shop, he meditated on the
pictures and thought he too might
be ale to paint.
At the opening of the Centre
d'Art by Mr. Dewitt Peters and
a group of Haitian Intellectuals
in 1944, Antonio was the first to
-present his credentials,.
He started to paint with water-
colours sur. nature'. But after a'
few years he was gievn his own
studio at the Center. Dewitt Pe-
ters was his first teacher and
three other visiting painters (one
was Paul Keene) advised him on
the choice of cassdrine which
they thought more suitable to him
for it give a better aspect than
aquaretle. They also initiated him
into the technique .which permit-
ted better expression of what he
saw and felt.
The 34-year-old painter is mar-
ried to a Port-au-Princienne, the
former Solange Jacques. They are
parents of a small boy and a girl.
In his leisure, he plays cards with
friends or reads books on paint-
ing. He doesn't smoke or drink
because his doctor will allow no
tobbaco or alcohol after a diagno-
sis of stomach'ulcer.
Antonio, Joseph, a short man,
of dark complexion, likes to talk
about painting (in fact his friends
are mostly those who can talk
*shop- with him) but hardly ever
speaks about his fame.
