A six-months-old Haitian I is in the balance. The mother,

Baby girl with an.ailment diag-
nosed as the brain growing
' out of the cranium and given
one month-to live, left Port-
an-Prince on the PAA Flight
436 at 1:25 P.M. Friday, for
the Children's Variety Hospi-
tal in Miami.
The errand of mercy was spon
scored by members of the Epis-
copalian Mission at Port-au-Prince.
The baby was brought by its
mother to the St. Vincent Scho-
ol for Handicapped Children last
week, asking that something be
done to save her child's life.
Sister Joan Margaret who di-
rebts the School for the Mission
became deeply interested in the
Case. It was learned that the
child had apparently been born
E. normal, but at the age of one
I. month a growth appeared on the
,forehead. This growth increas-

Sorifice, and spreading.
S The doctors at first had
-thought this to be a tumor, and
it was feared .that" an operation
Should prove fatal.
Further diagnosis revealed
i the odd theory that the child's
brain evidently had emerged
"and was growing outside of the

panied them aboard to take lea-

operation which offers one chan

With her, Sister Joan Marga-
ret also carried four pints of
blood donated by the baby's pa-
rents'and relatives of the same
blood group which it is expec-
ted would be needed for trans-
fusions in the delicate surgery.

For Pittsburg
Two Haitian artists of the Cen-\
trc d'Art have been invited to par-
ticipate in an exhibition in the
city of Pittsburgh, U. S. A., under
the auspices of the Carnegie Ins-

The -'ekito'. 3 aee

Messrs. Jasmin Joseph and Geor-

LEADING TRACTOR of the New Zealand Pol ar Party, wivith Sir Edmund at the wheel, starts.
-out from Scott Base in October on the three-month trek that led to the Pole.

Hullary Reaches

The South Pole

(From AHAITI SUN Special
WelJi'ngton, New Zealand,
Jan. 3 Sir Edmund Hillary
flashed the news at ,11.30 a.m.
today of his arrival to Scott
Base. The man who, in classic
phrase, had %knocked off
Mount Everest in 1952, had
* made another conquest.
With only enough fuel lIft
fr another 20 miles, after
their three months of polar
travel, the party was able to
.cast off the anxiety that had
been with them for many days
'.of low-gear progress over dif-
ficult terrain.
When the report of their
arrival had been sent, the
tired "but happy party turned
in for a little sleep. They had,
'had none for more than 24
hours of the forced march.
Boldness and determination, in
the true spirit of Everest, have
enabled Sir Edmund and the mem-
bers of his tractor party to bring
to a triumphant, ending their dra-

$natic dash for the Pole. The
world has been given yet another
example of what can be accom-
plished by a small party with only
slender resources when they arc
united in their purpose under ins-
pired leadership.
It is a proud occasion for New
Zealand and for British Antarctic
enterprise in general. And, let it
be added, it reflects a very happy
outcome of co-operation among
the nations in this International
Geophysical Year.
To Sir Edmund and his tractor
party will go the congratulations
of all. Grit and' dogged courage
such as they have displayed is ad-
mired the world over.
Till Hillary's tractors roared
their way towards the group of
huts which today mark the bet-

journey had been made to the
Pole since Captain Scott's last
tragic expedition planted its flag
there nearly half a century' ago.
For the first time in history the
journey has been made by motnr
But despite all the advantages
which mechanisation can hring,
the overland trip to the Pole is
still, as it was in Scott's day, the
toughest (journey of its kind in the
world. It still takes stout hearts
to brave the blizzard, to guide the
labouring vehicles through the
clogging, powdery snow, and to
face the dangers of the hidden

thing hs getting there the hard
way; nor is it pretended that it
is.- The real, basic scientific work,
such as is being undertaken by
Dr. Vivian Fuchs's expedition,
must be done from ground level,
and from ground level alone. And
only at ground level can lightly-
equipped parties such as Hillary's1
blaze the trail for an easier run
home by the major expedition
The aeroplane has, however, ta-
ken some of the chancincss out of

gone wrong in this instance, 'but

PROJECTS for the setting up of a Permanent Economic
Planning Board to develop the national resources, a contract
with the Caribbean Flour Mill which would safeguard the in-
terests of Government revenue and of the local consumer of
flour while at the same time opening the prospect of the cul-
tivation of wheat in the highlands of Haiti; and the erection
of a 550-room hotel thus doubling the hotel capacity, of the
country, were three of the proposals outlined this wiek by
President Dr. Francois Duvalier in a Message to a Special
Session of Congress.
Declaring that the legislation sought by the Government
was intended to modernise the public administration and
economic development staff, the President referred to the
reorganisation that had already taken place in the Ministerial
Departments designed to reflect more closely the needs of
the country.


Reforms in those State enterpri-
ses such as the Regie Tabac and
the Lottery, as well as in Govern-
ment departments such as the Pub
lie Works and the Water Supply
services would tend to make them
not only autonomous but self-sup

nate these services 'the Govern.

The Flour Mill
Declaring that it was the policy
of the Government to encourage

those investments the maximum

dent's Message said that this was
based on the .fact that such i--
vestments provided'increased op-
portunities for gainful employ-
ment, helped to diversify the c:o-

need for capital investment whk;!:

In doing so it had taken into ac-

said, was not confined to the
fields of export whereby dollars
were earned, but the creation' and

Accordingly, the Government
would ask approval of a contract
for the erection of a tourist hotel
to meet the growing need for ho-

S- MARDI QRAS.IS IN THE AIR. Many visitors from cruise-
ships visiting Port-au-Prince during the week were intrigued
by the Rah-Rah bands which have begun to make their ap-
perance as a prelude to Mardi Gras. This should be a pointer
to the Tourist Advisory Council announced this week.
THE WHOLE Caribbean, with the possible exception of
strike-bound Bphamas, is looking forward to a bumper vaca-
tion season. The other Latin-American countries have already
begun preparations for the annual Winter attraction of Mardi
Gras or Carnival or depending on where you are.
FROM CUBA to Panama business firms and 'Governments
are getting together for the Big Week. Nearby Jamaica, now
a partner with Trinidad in the Federation expects to benefit
not only from Trinidad's long publicised Calypso Carnival,
but the Federation has shrewdly fixed the opening of their
first Parliament by Princess Margaret Sister of the Bri-
tish Queen for shortly after Carnival. Come to Carnival
and stay on for the pomp and pageantry of a Royal visit-
they are saying.
ALL OF this means that Haiti cannot lose 'a minute in get-
ting her punch in. Much will depend on the co-operation the
Council gets from private entrepreneurs and the general pu-
blic for Tourist Business is Everybody's Business. The spon-
taneous and traditional Rah-Rah bands heralding Mardi Gras
should be capitalised on to make every visitor to Haiti be-
tween now and February 18 realise that there is a Big Bambo-
che around the corner for them- A little imagination, more
than a little co-operation by all concerned and a lot of hard
work and Haiti could still pull it off despite her late start.

The former is something im
personal, wholly matter-of-fact
and ostensibly efficient; it con
sists of ideas which may be
regarded ,as unassailable for
the reason that the specialist
planners are expert in their
spheres and work on facts in-
sofar as these are available.
(Facts* may turn out to be
fiction nevertheless).

Countless technical reports and
plans have been prepared with
specific objectives of technical
aid by metropolitan countries to
under-developed lands directly or
indirectly dependent upon them.

Operation of the plans has cost.'
money beyond the present dreams
of the United Nations technical
*assistance programme, yet disap-
pointment has often been more
prominent than success. What has
been so mystifying to the metro-
politan countries is that, as oft-
en as not, resentment is built up
against them in direct proportion
to the amount of money spent:


Sometimes technical projects
superimposed or carried" out in
vacuo by competent foreigners in
a strange land, can be spectacul-
ar like a single skyscraper in
a rural setting. They remain mo-
numents to a foreign pattern only
so long as they are maintained by
foreign aid, otherwise, being un-
used and unloved, they languish
and decay.

generation of cars... low, sw er, more efficient. The
low roofline of the Victor i nl\ 8 inches high! Thfiough
built so low to the road, hea_ oon ; generous and ground
clearance ample. This veiy mol2'rn design pays big
dividends in easy driving. Weight is kept low and there
is a niew fl.t-ride suspension system. So the Victor shows
remarkable reluctance, to roll Qn corners. Sure-footed
safety is designed right into the Victor.

Powered by a new, deep-skirt "square,, engine, the Victor
is very.much a top gear car-with swift, smooth top gear
acceleration from walking pace into the middle seventies.
This top gehr 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 Vauxhall for value with en exciting new
car at an excitingly low price!
There's value in every aspect o)f the Victor's very advanc-
ed design: in its newl.ow-swept good looks and panoramic
vision: hi its new flat-ride suspension,' and its new petrol-

Port-au-Prince. The Haitian Air
Force will fly you there in 'about

I imagine, though, it will be
somewhere in between. Most
Haitian' vacations are. People.go
there to get away from the pres
sure of American big-city living
and to relax and enjoy the easy-
going atmosphere and the beaku-
ty of the Island, but they're also
tremendously attracted by the
unique aspects of Haitian life,
the voodoo drums, the splendid
folkloric dancing and singing,
the almost' medieval life of the
remote mountain villages.

For many visitors ife begins
at night in Haiti, and it's.on Sa-
turday night that things reach
their jumpingest. Everybody
sings and dances in Haiti on Sa-
turday night, and the music be-
gins at dusk when the drums
start beating- in the hills. The
drums are calling the peasants
to voodoo dances and voodoo ce-
remonies, and they are beginn-
ing to beat out the rhythm at
bamboches, the poor man's night
clubs, where men and women
dance according to when and
how the mood hits them. A few
men and women dance together
in couples, but this is the excep-
tion. It's mostly group or solo
dancing, with the steps formal
and the movements traditional
and centuries old. The rhythm
is set by the omnipresent drums,
and by bamboo reds.
To go to a voodoo dance, all

Syou have to do is to point the
nose of your car in the direction
of the drums and keep going un
til you get there. Seeing a voo-
doo religious ceremony is some-
thing else again. The true voo-

About this voodoo business.
For the most part, it's been ter-
rifically oversensationalized. It
is, in the first place, a religion,
an attempt of simple agrarian
people to make their peace with
the nature gods whose influence
on their life and death is every-
where, in the rains that feed
the farms and the storms that
wash away the topsoil, the suns-
hine that brngs the crops ripe.
ness and the drought that burns
them to death on the stalk. The
voodoo religion placates the
gods of fertility, life and death
and sets the peasants straight
with the souls of their ancestors.
And the drums. Played with
the hands and feet, they're com-
pletely and typically Haitian,
and in Haiti they are far more
than mere musical instruments.
In colonial days they were the
telegraph lines pf the slaves, and
the liberty bell which sounded
the time to revolt. Today they
are the Haitian counterpart of
the factory whistle, calling the
peasants to a combite where
neighbors work together to
clear a field for planting, and
then beating out the rhythm of
the work songs.
On Saturday nights, though,
they're the peasant's combinat-
ion of a Scotch and soda and a
snare drum, relaxing him after
work and pounding out a beat

For the upper-class Haitian,
Saturday night is done on a dif
ferent pitch, but his enjoyment
of the week's high spot is no less
intense than the peasants. Hai-
tian society dresses in clothes
that are the equal of anything
you'd see in Paris, London or
New-York, and their after-dark
entertainment is just as sophis-
ticated. The Cabane Choucoune,
a night club built in the shape
of a huge, circular, thatched pea
sant, hut, is a favorite spot. The
music is the stately Haitian me-
ringue, the Cuban rumba or
mambo, the Argentine tango, or
good American dance tunes, and
the conversation is in Parisian
French', Madrileno Spanish or
American English, not the Cre-
ole lingua franca of the island.
.1 enjoyed the International
Casino. even more. Built in 1949
on Port-au-Prince's Boulevard
Harry Truman, the new water-
front promenade, as part of the
International Exposition, the ca-
sino-is a top bet for an evening's
fun any night in the week. You
can dine there on fine Italian
food served with such elegance
that the waiter changes his whi-
te gloves with each course. The
gambling tables are run by a
Monte Carlo-trained staff under
the supervision of the Haitian
government. The house takes a
fair cut, but no more, so your
chances of coming out ahead are
more than microscopic.




There's a beautiful outdoor
dancing terrace overlooking the
bay, and Cuban and Haitian or-
chestras alternate between rum-
bas, mambos, meringues and an
occasional samba, which once in
a while Stardust thrown in for
the benefit of ,nostalgic Ameri-
cans. A Haitian girl in our party

Haiti Cherie in Creole between
