HAITI joins in the widespread expressions of sympathy
which have been tendered to the neighboring island of Ja-
maica on the terrible railway accident which befell a party of
excursionists. At last reports two hundred persons had died
and seven Nundred were in hospital as a result of the crash.
The disaster is one of tte worst in railway history. Reports
tell of coaches laden with passengers piling upon each other
in a ravine into which they had fallen. Unfortunately the
death toll is expected to be even higher as many gravely
injured are not expected to recover.

The chauffers lost the trans-
po'rtation. For the shopping dis-
trict there was a potential of,
5,600 x 200 : $ 1,120.000 of sales.

The Fedders were in the Do-

Shopping was not yet adequate.
But one of us knew how to bring
them around to coming by plane
to do some shopping here and
in spite of the short hours pas-

The importance is evident, but
it takes intelligent work, coor-

with firmness and with the
shortest possible delay. '

I have finished. In thanking
the Committee of our Associa-
tion for having permitted me to
make this expos,' my colleagues
and friends for having listened
attentively, I would like to ex-
cuse myself for the numerous
gaps in this work. They are in-
-evitable gaps because all in all
everything tlit I have just said
must not be considered more
than a preface; a sort of ,avant-
propos to a whole series of con-
ferences which should have as
their principal theme : Haitian
Tourism : its Problems and its

You have doubtless noticed
that I have not spoken of some-
thing that is very important foq
us who aie engaged in the Tou-
ristic Industry : The problem of
American money : of dollars
themselves and of divisionary
pieces of 5 cents, 10 cents, 25
cents, 50 cents.

Other considerations could be
taken up here, one being more
important than the other. But
our time is precious and I have
had to run what sportsmen
would call ca race against the
clock". Thank you once again.

In conclusion, Cle .s offer this
prayer of Presidrnt Eisenhow-
er's. applying it t, our ToUrism
efforts :

"Our Father, give us the'grace
of conjoining our efforts to
solve our common problems in-
stead of dissipating our. energy
in internal strife,.
