orange flames near the electric-

was one of the worst ever in Pe-

size in three years.
What threw the neighbour-
hood into panic was the absence
of a firt brigade at Petionville,
and furthermore water supplies
were inadequate. As the flames
rose and threatened to spread,
people screamed, mattresses and
bundles of furniture w e r e

NELO SOSA AND THE
AT CABANE CHOUCOUNE
On Saturday afternoon Nelo
Sosa and the famed Conjunto
Colonial orchestra arrived in
Port au Prince for an engage-
ment at he Cabane Choucoune.
The Conjunto Colonial, well
known to Radio Prokreso listen-
ers, was engaged by Mme Ma-
rini to bring to Haiti its own spe
cial brand of rhythm for the en-
tertainment of the select clien-
tele of the Choucoune. Ernest
Lamy rates it as one of the
best in Cuba.
Last week Saturday after a
quarter of a century in Haiti a
well-beloved couple left for their

among a group of auditors of the
National City Bank of New York,
entrusted with the task of in-
specting the National Bank of
the Republic. When on his sec-
ond visit here one year later,
Mr. McDonald, then Inspector of
the Branch in Havana was trans
ferred to Port au Prince where
he had remained until his re-
It is difficult to overestimate
the services Mr. McDonald has
rendered, this country. He com-
pletely reorganized the old-fa-
shioned banking system here,
while improving relations be-
tween the officials of the Na-
tional City Bank and the Haitian
employees. He made changes in
the Credit Department and the
Control, system of funds. sPrac-
tice and Procedure., the banking
code of the National City was
adopted through his suggestions.
In. short, Mr. McDonald was
chiefly responsible for making
the National Bank of Haiti one
of the most respected institu-
tions in the new world.

occupation as a pharmacist mate

deeper into vodoo lore, the while.

character such as the country-

very sympathetic towards the

Americans who really knows

< HELLO HAITIL
.'= FROM CANADA
by Roselly Miller
..HE TIE between Canada and Haiti is great, for they are both
up-and-coming nations, and particularly because certain parts
Sof Canada, [Province of Quebec] are founded on and have kept
S alive the French culture.
In a recent interview with Le Soleil, Monsieur Philippe Can-
tave, Consul-General of Haiti stressed certain facts which prove
this great relationship between the two countries.
,He alluded to the Canadian missionaries and paid them great
homage for their work.in Haiti. He attested towards the popu-
arity Cftada held for Haitian students. Many have studied in
M. pnfreal, Quebec and Ottawa, while 'the United Nations have
also sent students to study the situations here and employ'their
knowledge at home.
A well known Quebecer, Monsieur J. C. Magnan, Director of
Agriculture in quebec- has often visited Haiti and has written
three volumes on the country. Haiti was also on the agenda of
Minister of Trade and Commerce, Mr. C. D. Howe's goodwill
-. .trade mission.to Latin America.
Mr. Howe said in a recent speech to the House of Com-
mons : The reasons for the growing importance oftrade be-
tween Canada and Latin America are obvious. Latin America
I" has a population of over 150 million and vast natural resources
S complementary to our own. .. We are natural trading part-
'. ers, each in need of what the other can supply..
S.' Canada however exports more goods to other countries than
it allows for importation.- This leaves the other countries with
a bad ormmercial balance. I
-Haiti imports from Canada principally', fish, flour, news-
paper, other paper, alchool, canned meats, automobiles and ac-
:,;,'. cesspries, farming equipment,, food pastes, culinary utensils,
soalip cheese, and pharmaceutical supplies.
.Canada. in return buys only coffee, honey, sugar, sisal and
other small articles valued at 350,000 dollars a year.
S There are so many ofher products that Haiti can export to
Canada, 'such as cacao, banana, wax beans and run. The' im-
ortation of Rum to Canada is dependant on Provincial govern-
:.-.: mnt'laiws and restrictions,' as are all 'alcoholic beverages.
There is a hope that these laws and restrictions can be
oveicdme so that Haiti can establish a great Rum importation
industry here. Monsieur Ernesto Martijn, Consul-General of
Haiti in Montreal reports that recently there has been a con-
'. stant exchange of views with the high officials of the Canadian
Government to permit a fldw of goods into Canada from Haiti,
particularly the Haitian Rum. Let us hope that thisurgent
i problem will be favourably solved to'the advantages of both

is th6 paradise of crocodile hunt-

hunt besides crocodile are wild
brown goats, hens, ortoans and
ducks, and if only the duck-hunt-

which can be found in Haiti-

it seems as if a panorama of a
