His company has been one of
,the most extensive buyers of
..Haitian sisal for years. Mr.
Blockstedt began, adding that he
had been in the cordage business
for forty years. Then went on
:to describe sisal growth, method
'of decortication, other phases of
.processing, incidentally mention
.ing that 96 per cent of sisal is
pulp after decortication.
Over the last ten years de-
mand has exceeded supply hit-

During the war years, Mr,
SBlockstedt was advisor of the
Reconstruction Finance Corpora-
Tioh which tried to fill the de-
i'mands in the Western Hemis-
4'phere by promoting the planting
'of sisal in Central America. In
'those days sisal sold for 8 or 9
cents a pound.
Leaving the RFC he toured
the world for his old company
in 1948, making a survey of
what was happering to sisal.
Says that the best sisal in the
wofld is produced in Java, also
producer of the greatest quan-
tity. Java sisal is 'as white as
a table cloth, according to Mr.
Blockstedt, and although ne-
glected during their cultivators
preoccupation with Japs in the
war years, are today well on
the way to pre-war qVality. It's
quality that counts in the sisal
business, declared the speaker.
Citing 'world figures he dis-
closed that Haiti's 35,000 tons
annual production accounts for
12 per cent of world output. Our
republic is only six days travel
from the greatest market in the
world and our sisal is of compare
timely high quality. Forcibly and

tended hope of future increase

SHOT AS THIEF
Jacques Savain was killed by
a shot in the face fired by'a
policeman placed on duty near
Mille Yvonne Rimpel's on Camille
Leon Street, when he tried to
resist arrest on Friday night.
The gendarme stationed in the
area owing to complaints of
thefts there, is reported to have
caught Savain stealing two ducks
from a neighboring yard.
The thief attempted to escape
and the policeman shot him'
twice in the body. Reaching the
Pont Morin bridge, in spite ot
his wounds, he turned to strug-
gle with his pursuer who shot
him again in the cheek, killing
him on the spot.

((Ti Brodais, In Jail Again, Knocks Twelve Pass Of Fourteen Haitian -
Over Two Women With Car American English Exam.
Friday at 11 a.m. the noted
vagabond, and car washer Ti
Brodais, wearer of a police cap
and sun glasses popped into the
limelight again by committing a
violent act. Ti Brodais's elegant
elegant swing of the shoul-
ders as he walks bearing a
would-be inoffensive knife at his
side, has so far earned him the
reputation of a funny character.
We learned from reliable sour-
ces that about two weeks ago Ti
Brodais had entered the butcher
trade by trying his knife on the
head of a dwarf washman by the
name of Canard, a confrbre in
the car washing trade on the
Exposition. Bandy-legged Can-
ard had had an argument with

a light green Buick car he was

on duty at the prison was echoed
by a typical gadem. from the
car washer. When the cop
came after him he jumped into
the car behind the wheel, turned
the ignition and in a twinkle of
the eye was cruising down the
road like a rocket with tail trou-
Before coming to a smashing
halt he knocked over two ladies,
one miraculously escaped injury,
and another sustained a broken
thigh. Ti Brodais was handcuf-
fed at the wheel and removed to

be pointed out again that this
examination, which was written,
was of three hours' duration,

The Leading American
- Are Now On Sale At All
Not long ago it was commonplace for an
isolated town or work site to be denied
the comforts and conveniences of elec-
tricity. Once off the main transmission
lines they were relegated to a life of oil
lamps, hand labor and dried foods.
Now, however, many isolated com-
mnunities have fresh foods, electrical appli-
ances, power tools, radios and adequate
lighting. They have gained these benefits
through the use of Caterpillar Diesel
These engines drive an electric gener-
ator and they run on low-cost Diesel fuel.
They are easy to operate because they
regulate themselves. If desired they can
be connected through a switchboard.
Don't be denied the comforts and con-
veniences of electricity. We can install a
Caterpillar Diesel-Electric Set to furnish
adequate power-ANYWHERE! We will
be pleased to survey your site and give
you our recommendations.

that his attention was first fo-

serve the 400th anniversary of
the settlement of the New
World. The Haitian Exhibit
placed in charge of the great
American ex-slave, diplomat and
orator, Frederick Douglas. Dr.
Dailey got to know his first Hai-
tians when he, was doing post-
graduate work in Paris in 1912.
There he became acquainted
with Auguste Casseus and Felix

came to him for training, he
could always be counted on to

and loneliness in a foreign land.

his first visit to Haiti, a score
or more of local doctors were
able to return his hospitality.

American surgeon an appropri-
