emerged in September, 1956,
having organized- an .. jer-
ground movement, coming out
at a time of general amnesty.

He accepted the Electoral
Decree issued by the Military
Council Aughst 28. ,He has
earnestly .campaign throughout
the country, appealing to the
masses and middle-class, with
pledges of an honest govern-
ment. He feels the county, has
enough resources that honesty
is enough to organize coopera-
tives and an agricultural pro-
gram. It feels it .necessary 'to
raise the literacy rate so as to
prepare the masses for demo-
eracy and when his plan goes
into operation the whole coun-
try will find a new confidence
for study and joy. He hopes to
buildl a university city and he
wants, the University of Haiti
to be self-governing instead of
as at present under control of
th.e government.


Dr, Duvalier has a great
scientific, sociological interest
in voodoo as part of country's
folklore. He wants to both de-
velop it and to rid the people
of their 'superstitions. He ',has
written a-book oThe Gradual
Evolution of Voodoo.>, 1944.
,;AH countries have their folk-
lore which is part of the pater-
nal inheritance of the country.
His interest is like Grieg's in
developing Norway's folklore
as a" .basis for the countries
poets, artists, etc. to draw- on.
something to examine cultural
richness in view of the nation-
al literature, as a facet of the
national life, just like the
church. This does mean it
should receive the same status
as the church but part of the
life. There is the vulgar side

Junta Nips Strike
SMove Closed Stores
Forced Open
Or Sealed
The Military Junta claimed
on Thursday 'that it had nipped
an attempt by a small group of
businessmen to start a general
strike to upset the results of last
Sunday election.
T w e n t y one establishments,
comprising about five per cent
of the commercial section of
Port-au-Prince, failed to op4n
their doors on time on Thurs-
day morning. They were either
opened or forcibly sealed in to-
ken of seizure by the Police on
orders of the Bureau of Contri-
butions which is empowered to
take this action under last Ju-
ne's/ decree outlawing political
-trikes, and lockouts.
Several owners of premises
concerned in the closures were
arrested 'and later released after
they had appeared before the

tember 26 to Oct. 5 is the pe-
riod of ,the Jewish observation

closed was given the establish-
ments of Charles Bigio, Ver-
saille, A Bo-n Conte. Textile Im-
port, Import Inc., and Mme. J.
Ades. None of these establish-
ments were disturbed during
Thuredayfs proceedings.
A Junta spokesman alleged
that the closure of the other bu-
seneses. was an -attempt by sup-
portens of 'Mr. Louis Dejoie to
infitiae -a general strike against
the unofficial victory, at the
polls of Dr. Francois Duvalier.
The previous Tuesday, Mr.
Dejoie had told foreign corres-

Editorial Comment In U.S. Press
On Haiti's Elections
The results of the Haitian election for President are not yet
official, but it seems clear enough that Dr. Francois Duvalier
is going to be declared the victor. Whatever some Haitians may
feel about the election, it is to be hoped that the whole country
will now accept the verdict and settle down to a desperately
needed period of civic peace.
Under the best of circumstances an election in Haiti cannot
duplicate conditions in established aad stable democracies like
the United States, Britain or France. This was Haiti's first elec-
tion under universal suffrage. Illiteracy at about 90 percent is
as high as anywhere in the world. The people have always vot-
ed for personalities, not parties or political philosophies. The
small palace guard, which represents the equivalent of a Haiti-
an Army, has in recent years dominated the country, or held
effective power behind the scenes.
The events of the past ten months since President Paul Ma.
gloire was ousted made a fundamentally difficult problem almost
impossible. Personal rivalries, mob violence, a succession of
general strikes ending with a censorship and the equivalent of
martial law, had created a situation where an election that was
halfway fair would be as much as could be expected. The elect-
ion did take place peacefully and it can be considered a popular
What seems to have saved the day was the desire of a great
majority of the Haitian people to have elections and a wear-
iness with a long period of strife -and squabbling. There is ob-
viously a collective feeling that the chaos of recent months with
its disastrous effect on the already poor economy must end.
Brig. Gen. Antonio Kebreau, head of the military junta and
a temporary dictator in the last three months, appears to have
done his best to hold fair elections. Dr. Duvalier is as popular
and as qualified as any candidate who came forward. Haitians
would be wise now to rally behind him and work to bring
tranquillity and prosperity to their country.
(cNew York Times)

FRIENDS OF HAITI in this country -and they are legion.-
hope the internal strife that has ridden the lovely little Negro
republic for months may quickly end. The .prospect is dim I
The country has been under a rule of a military junta for
months. Sunday a presidential election was held.
Dr. Francois Duvalier was apparently elected by a substant-
ial majority.
Partisans of defeated candidates, former Sen. Louis Dejoie
and Clement Jumelle. attempted to set up a general strike.
Soldiers, police and civilians bashed in doors of closed bus-
iness houses in Port au Prince.
The enforced calm may be a prelude to an eruption of viol-
ence when the result of the election will be officially announc-
ed on October 6.
The fires of internal political passions and violence are harc
to quell. The longer Haiti remains disturbed, the longer it will
be before its people can live together in harmony and unity.
Its going to be a heavy task for the country to pick up the
pieces of its national economy which has been seriously shatt-
ered by prolonged internal unrest.
((Miami Herald))

Whatever else may finally come to light about Haiti's elect-A
ions on Sunday, they were comparatively quiet. This does not
mean that the day was like an upcountry New England Sab-
bath, for one death was reported and half a dozen arrests..But
many Haitians, who had lived through months of turmoil, un-
?ertainty and repression since President Paul Magloire was
forced out last December, must have breathed more easily as
the sun went down.
Haiti has been ruled, during a space of less than.a year. by
one elected President, Magloire himself, who exceeded his leg-
al term; by a Provisional President, Joseph Nemours Pierre-
Louis, head of the Supreme Court; by the Army Chief of Staff,
Gen. Leon Cantave; by another Provisional President, Franck
Sylvain, who seems to have taken office when General Cantave
wasn't looking: by an Executive Council, which forced M. Syl-
vain out after a few weeks; and by Provisional President Da- :
niel Fignol6. who lasted less than three weeks before a three-
man junta headed by Gen. Antonio Kebreau relieved him of
his responsibilities. Riots, general strikes and some shooting,'
punctuated these chantees. But on Sunday it seemed quiet.
Only two out of half a dozen or more candidates figured in ,I

the final election: Dr. Francois Duvalier and Louis Dejoie. A ound Jacminel. Dr. Verries was
third candidate, Clement Jumelle, withdrew on the ground that most kind ,as was Dr. Celestin.

the game was rigged in favor of Dr. Duvalier. This was the first
election under universal franchise in Haiti's modern history.
It will be some days before the ballots, most of them cast by
voters who cannot read, have been even unoficially counted.
So Haiti's crisis is not yet finished. Her friends will hope,
however, that those in control will make an honest count, and
that the period of rule by juntas ,riots, strikes and censorships
is done with Haiti needs our economic aid, as well as private
investments, but her credit must depend on an honest, orderly
and democratic regime. ((New York Tinies)

cTrMNAYv 6th OCTOBER 1957




Dear Bernie:
As you listen on the ama-
teur radio bands nowadays,
you hear people talking about
their DX (distance) contacts
for the day. Normally, they
discuss whether Germany is
coming through well, or wheth
er the Australians are active
on twenty meters that sort
of thing. You also hear them
say that things must be tough
in Haiti; al the Haitians are off
the air.
Collectively, the reapear-
ance of the normally quite act-
ive Haitian contingent on the
international air, would have a
reassuring effect.
From a negative standponit,
we doubt that such a ban, by
itself, can possibly prevent the
use of clandestine radio trans-
mitters by sufficiently dermin-
ed individuals who have noth-
ing to losq by operating ille-
Just for laughs, we figured
out that in order to begin a
half-way effective watch on
the international bands for ill-
egally-operating Haitian sta-

tions would take:
1 truly superior and well-ed-
ucated officer who has been
a ham for 4 years.
4 average officers, also hams
or well-trained radio oper-
16 superior petty officers, all
well-trained radio men.
96 well-trained ratings, a l 1
