.A survey by UNESCO comes up with some.. disturbing figures on
illiteracy in this hemisphere. In Latin America the percentage is about
40 and the school attendance is not keeping pace with population increases.
This UNESCO report lists as consequences of illiteracy several obstacles
to national growth and welfare. Among them are deficits in national
economy, low incomes and productivity, low living standards, unequal
distribution of incomes and difficulty in maintaining democratic stand-
ards and principles. All this is true.
,Literacy is not. an end in itself. There is no demonst able organic con-
nection between literacy and intelligence.
On.tbe other hand, literacy is one of the most useful tools that mankind
has evolved. It" is the very foundation of social intercourse, in many
cases. It is, much easier' to do a given job in -government, in public
health, in the promotion of simple adjuncts to happiness if a majority
of the persons affected can read and write.
A high percentage of illiteracy, in this context, therefore, does not
,, mean that personsas individuals or as groups are "backward." It sim-
ply means that they need better tools to do their various jobs. Literacy
is one of those and we should do all that we can to provide it.

*Plantins are stiU expensive because of the drought and the winds
which damaged the plantations in the plain-of Arcahaie and because
of the bad shape of the road of Jacmel which prevented the arrival of
the highly rated plantains of Cayes Jacmel to Port-au-Prince.
*This week by Motor boat arrived in Port a large quantity of ignames

*Mangoes as a crop is have given no good result because of the drought

*Vegetables are still rare but this week, thanks to tihe rains in the
:. mountains, the quantities brought to market start to increase ostensibly.
'Onions are very expensive, the harvest is over.
*Potatoes are still expensive, the quantities brought to the Capital
City are very limited, they come from the temperate climate of the high
lands which was not affected by the drought. The next harvest is not far
though and will be abundant if we keep having rains as during the .first
week of May.
Price-of-poultry increased with the parties necessitated by the "first

:.ItJs getting so that people are
king vacations as much to
hop as to play golf, lounge in
.-he sun or just relax. And, no
wonder when you consider the
savings to be had through Free
Port-Shopping. A couple who
utnormally might' spend $500 on
'Christmas gifts finds they can
.i. 'uy the same gifts, in free-port
S shops, at savings up to 60% of
SU. S. prices. So, for the $250
I or so they save, they enjoy a
-wonderful vacation in Haiti.
Perhaps the most famous free-
"' port shop in the world is La

heart of fascinating Port-au-
SPrince, Haiti. Here one can
find a veritable wonderland.
AI R fuH of the world's most de-
sired merchandise. Swiss wat-
ches, Cashmeres, Handmade
;k. bags, Gloves, Crystal, China,
i':-' Silver, French Perfumes, Ca-
-- meras, Liquours and a seem-
-' ingly endless array of native
i' handicraft make La Belle
_-Creole more a shopping cen-

r. ter than a ordinary shop. Con-
a"sider that one can buy the
rorld's most -famous Swiss
watches Patek Philippe,
Omega, Ulysse Nardin, Tissot,
Nivada, Jaeger Le -Ceultre,
Borel, J.uvenia, Audemars P-i-
guet--at discounts of 50% of
the U. S. advertised prices,.
nd it is no wonder that La
'-, Belle Creole is famous. The
same applies in China, Crystal
and the rest every fine brand
is represented. Before buying-
an expensive watch it 'mighit
:- be well worth your time to
consider a'trip to Haiti.

a'. AlT oustas, President of La
.- ,: 'Belle Creole and I aiti's most
S.vigorous promoter of tourism,
is perhaps another reason for
-the surge in popularity of
f ree-port shopping. His ad-
vertising in support of travel-
-shopping has appeared in most
Leading U-S. publications and
.he continues to pursue a po-.
licy of cooperating with tra-
Svel agents in their various
promotions to increase tou-
rism. Among the most popular
innovations he has- created is
the practice of sending a bot-
S tie of free champagne to any
visitor to Haiti who happens
to be celebrating a wedding
anniversary oF to be on a
S- honeymoon.
This year La Belle Creole is
itself celebrating a 10th an-
nivqrsary and Al Nouptas has
doubled his efforts to make
the world conscious of the
advantages of traveling-to-
.shop. The store will hold a
two month long sale. offering
even greater discounts on fa-
... ous brand merchandise.
Everyday exclusive items will
'- be selected to be sold to visi-
.tors at prices that will as-
tound them. No doubt thou-
sands of tourists this year will
come home from vacations in
; Haiti, richer, in a way, than
when they went away.

They were not going to be,
pushed into any errors, and
that the fundamentals of the

that would establish a solid

told the Senators. "This

He stated that COARE 'had

Delta Air Lines will sponsor two
Agency Orientation Groups to the
e "public of Haiti this year to ac-
quaint them with the many tourist
i'. attractions and hotel facilities avail-
,., able in -this country.
'" Many will recall the magic charms
. -of last year's Delta Royal Caribbean
.- FTiesta. It was considered one of the
-m '0ost successful familiarization
-tours ever sponsored. The reason
behind its outstanding success wvas
the splendid cooperation received
t," from tthe National Council of Tour-
ism- ,hotels, Agence Citadelle; and
last ,but- not least, the excellent
- news coverage given by Haitian
newspaper and those in the U.S.
In view of suth.memorable succ-
ess, Delta is bringing two groups
.this year, instead of one.
The first group of twenty-one will
arrive from Chicago, Saturdhy, June
-6, on Delta Flight 402 at 12:09 P.M.

.ing--MVIiss- Frances Niles, formerly

booster for this country.-
I' The second grop will arrive from
'Detroit Saturday, June 13, on -Delta
Flight 402 at 12:09 p.m. and depart
-" Monday. June 15. This group has
an interesting significance, since
: Delta Air Lines has recently. beer
awarded a non-stop route from De-
troit to Miami. This great industrial
area can become a lucrative tour
ist producer for Haiti ,and. much
emphasis has been exerted by th<
Delta sales staff in Detroit to pro
mote Caribbean travel. In addition
7. Haiti is being promoted in sixty
seven U.S. cities which this majo
airline serves.
An interesting and entertaining
L program of events, which will leave
an indellabie impression of Haitiai
hospitality, has been planned fo
both groups.

that he had to admit that the hotel
prices here are exaggerated. There
is a general \tendency in the Ca-

the hotel centers, he pointed out,
but said that ever.\ effort should be
made to diminish the prices.

American Embassy in Pars until sition as Cultural Attache at the

transfer to Washington in 1956.
In Washington lie served as Spe-
cial Assistant to the Deputy Direct-
or for Policy and Plans of-the U.S.

of this year.
Mr. Arthur is accompanied here
in Haiti by his wife, Patricia, and
his three children, Douglas age 11.
Nancy seven, and Suzanne four. All
members of the family have been
charmed by Haiti, and are .delighted
to have had the good fortune of be-
ing assigned here. After many years
in France, Haiti is extremely inte-
resting to the Arthurs, and their
children are now busy relearniing
the French that they spoke in the
past but forgot while in the United
States. .
Mr. Arthur's aim in Haiti is to
*reate-a better understanding of the
US and its foreign policy on the part
of the Haitian people .and to put the

disposition of those Haitians who are
seeking a closer rapprochement bet-
ween the two sister Republics.
Mr, Arthur is extremely impress-
ed with the tremendous reservoir of
alent in this country, and hopes to
be able to work with the young
Haitian painters, musicians, writers,
etc... as well as with the young un-
versity students who will be-the fut-
ure leaders of this nation.
He hopes .also, to work with the
new director of the Institute Haitia-
no-Americain, Mr. John Floyd, to
expand its role-'-in this city, deve-
loping it into a veritable cultural
center, where" American and Haiti-
ans alike can participate together
in cultural endeavors.
In shdrt, to bring the two peoples
of these two nations into closer un-
derstanding, and to aid and encou-
rage young Haitians to develop na-
tural talents thereby making them
more useful citizens to their country
are the basic aims of Mr. Arthur's
program here.
