beyond saying that this gives Hai- ed, with another week for recu-

Mr. Vrooman that passed on to

He used the example of Jacmel
Mr. Vrooman said that for eight
years he has been visiting Jacmel

Shas been taking friends, and for
the past two years he has been
-taking all of his vacationers to
Jacmel on a regularly-organized
basis once a week. A visit to Jac-
mel, for the foreign vacationer, is
an ,adventure,, and one in which
he participates. It is therefore
much Inmre than a sightseeing si-
tuation. -Adventurers, lead the
way; 'sightseers- follow, he said;
this Is travel history. He finds Jac
mel unterly charming in its very
unaffectedness, its. lack o, com-
mercialism, its *other-world, qua-
lity. He photographs it from all
angles, of course; but because he
is a participant, treasures the re-
sults for the memories of a per-
Ssonal experience, rather than of a
pretty scene or an unusual human
or animal. In other words, said
Mr. Vrooman, we must open up
Haiti to the visitor, so that it has.
a chance to make an emotional
impact upon him, rather than con-
fining his scope and so insulting
him from reality that his impres-
sions are objedlive and intellec-

point, Haiti is only too likely to
come off second-or third-best

Mr. Vrooman went on to say
' that the Jacmel visit has been

port. cWhatever else a visit to

the one thing it does not mean

THIS GRJEAT project is also an example of what can be
accomplished by the people of this Republic given the right
leadership and understanding help. The forefathers of these
peasants, looking down from the surrounding hills, must have
heard with pride the music of the Coumbite, songs telling
of a task engaged upon in comradeship for the common weal.
THUS these men and women have become worthy of those

worthy of its forebears and to be blessed by its children.. The

uTHE HAITI SUN) joins in offering its sincere condolen-
ces to the President and members of his family on the death
of Judge Duval Duvajier. It must have been a measure of
consolation on the part of father and son that at least Judge
Duvalier's life was spared long' enough to see his son inaugu-
rated into the highest post to which a man may be called to
serve his country.
IN THE light of this week's sad event the President's tri-
bute of filial piety in his Inauguration Address comes back
With added force. (At this moments, he said referring to his
father who was present, probably the most moving in his
life, he must be experiencing a flood of moral satisfaction.
The family legacy of honesty of purpose, of nobleness of cha-
racter and love of the public welfare ... shalI be, my cons-

affairs of State I shall endeavour to enrich that legacy and
hand it over undimmed...)
THAT SOLEMN obligation has been sealed and made more
sacred by death, but in offering our condolences we do so
not so much to the President of the Republic as to the son
who has lost a father and who has still with him the constant
comfort of the memory of a life worthily lived.

By W. K. KELSEY, in the -Detroit News",

Commentator learned that the Al-

IN NEED OF BLOOD
To the Editor: Commentator
kelsey's column on the new Al-
bert Schweitzer Hospital, in Haiti,
interested me greatly. Having lived
in Port au Prince fotar the past 10
years, 1 know how desperately
the Mellon Group needs donations
of blood for the hospital.
The Commentator gives a very
accurate account of that need and
the conditions under which the
hospital operates. Mnder 9r. Ivel-
lon, physicians are giving notonly
their experience and knowledge
but, because the need is so great,
they often give their blood The
splendid work they are doing de-
serves our support. A donation of
blood to the Albert Schweitzer
Hospital is something every indi-
vidual can contribute.
The small republic of Haiti
needs our help. Mr. Kelsey has
described the .conditions in Haiti
and I can add. the thought that
Haiti is a beautiful country with
citizens of dignity, courtesy and
a courage that is remarkable.

New right from the road up, the Victor heralds a new
generation of cars... lower, swifter, more efficient. The
low roofline of the Victor is only 58 inches high! Though
built so low to the road, headroom is generous and ground
clearance ample. This very modern design pays big
dividends in easy driving. Weight is kept low and there
is a new flat-ride suspension system. So the Victor shows
remarkable reluctance to roll on corners. Sure-footed
safety is designed right into the Victor.
! f :; z ..
V A X H A L L
Powered by a new, deep-skirt ,square,, engine, the Victor
is very much a top gear ear-with swift, smooth top gear
acceleration from walking pace into the middle seventies.
This top gear flexibility, cuts petrol consumption, too.
Because the Victor's -square, engine performs so efficient
ly throughout its whole speed range, it puts the Victor far
ahead of its class for all-round fuel economy.
Once again it's VauxhaIll for value with an exciting new
car at an excitingly low price!
There's value in ever aspect of the Victor's very advanc-
