LEOPARD SKIN SHOULD BE
ADOPTED AS NATIONAL DRESS
Never before and perhaps never again will the jungles in Bois
Verna ring with such uninhibited gaiety as they did Sunday night.
An 8 to 4 Mardi Gras party of this calibre happens about as frequent-
ly as an eclipse of the moon.
Success of the 4bal, can be credited to the animals who prepared
it, an energetic, young tribe of leopards, male and female. The lush.
tropical jungle with an ever-flowing spring of Barbancourt and Bal-
lentine was planted in the former home of Mr. and-Mrs. D'Adesky-
; Ti Jazz with a 'number one. rating kept even the foliage jumping
with such new favorites as Ti Ta To's .Ehi-rth Satellite, meringue.
There were representatives from Manhattan, Panamanian, and Ca-
nadian jungles; the only person who didn't put in an appearance was
Chita, although dozens of pink elephants did come to play.
The tribe became so pleased with its abbreviated leopard skins
that is has prepared a petition suggesting that these might be adopte'l
as our National Dress. The tribe points out that the simple, over-the-
shoulder leopard skin has many benefits for the Nation. To list but
a few : 1) In keeping with the austerity program, no need for under-
shirts, ties, and other such frivolous accessories. 2) Stimulation of
.tourism. Tourists from the cold North would eagerly come to swap
their bear skins for our leopard skins which are an even better lure
Than the pseudo-Polynesian garb seen on every tourist in Hawaii.
3) Reduction of imports: no more demand for French laces and
American dacron. 4) Encouragement of new industry. Leopard farms
where iobs would always be open thanks to a high mortality rate
amongst the hard working farmers. 5) Increased Exports. A great
demand for our new costume may be expected from other tropical
Caribbean islands. 'Unfortunately Florida weather would only permit
the wearing of the leopard skin during the heighth of summer. 6) A
miquc sport for The West Indies to attract adventurers from all the
world : baiting and shooting !eopards for which big game hunters
would pay lkgh.
Although The Rue Courbe, -Textile Avenue., would have to be
renamed -Leopard Avenue., this is the bnly forseable inconvenience.
We have space to list just a few, but we are sure that everyone will
-cadil,' understand the extraordinary advantages that would result/
rom the adoption of- the leopard skin as our National Dress.

One of his police spies tipped
Joanovici off when the net began

Accusation followed accusation.
He was alleged to have smuggled

one recalled that Joanovici's car
had been used in the murder of
a Resistance worker in a wood
near Paris'during the Occupation.

Then M. Dupreux made his pu-

and he was hunted throughout the

the hardest blow At a meeting in

Joanovici's business methods and

again, this time for having 'work-

In monthly instalments he re-
duced the debt to $231,000 by
June 1957, but the July payment
wasn't made. Joanovici promised
to pay the July, August and Sep-

coffers ran dry because early in

Classical Greek in Haiti
When Keats came out with his Ode
to a Grecian Urn. he was reflect-
ing what generations of people
have felt over thousands of years.
Namely, that the Greek artisans
of the B. C. period had a definite
feeling for sculpture and art
work destined to make their
designs last through the ages.
Keats says no more than you or
I think today when we see the
lovely Grecian things available at
La Belle Creole... but granted he
says it so much better. Neverthe-
less. he doesn't mean it any more.
For we too can appreciate the
simple, classic, timeless beauty of
the Grecian plates and accessory
prices on display. The same styliz-
ed design of the hunter, the
Goddess, or the lovely maiden is
jusi as enchanting today as it was
when it 'first was created. And
the nice part.of it all is, we don't
have to travel all over the world

Notice the stately beauty of the

Or the largest of the three sizes
would make a most handsome
center table decoration. While a
boudoir would profit- handsomely
by the addition of one or two
small covered jars which would
be perfect for powders or pins.
There are ash trays for practical
'beauty, and hot plates with equally
functional value..And each piece
is fully done in the- classic Greek
design, the simple geometric beau-
ty of the ages.
Then too, the famous yellow-'
brown and black colors that mark
the Greek art of the early period
airc as striking in the house of to-
day as years ago. They're even
