"'Marco Polo" Sends 1 hanks To Haiti As 3 Year

466 Khyber Pass Road,
Auckland. N.Z.
22 December, 1957.

For the past seven weeks, sin-
ce October 12th, when we pul-
led in at Auckland, I have been
intending to write you a perso-
nal, individual and intimate let-
ter. But where to begin? And to
whom shall I say first 4My
thanks go out to you for the
hand of friendship extended in
.a land away from homeyb And
in what order to follow on to
the many many other friendly
folks who made the three-year
voyage of 4sMarco PoloD so plea,-
surable and memorable to those
who sailed in her.

So... reluctantly I choose this
way to say at least some of
the things I want to say to you
and to, tell you something of our
experiences since we bid you
good-bye and sailed away.
So, I will first recall the
Route of 4Marco Polox. It was
July 8th 1954 that we set out
from Auckland with far more
hope t'ian experience to guide
us around the world. First larid-
fall after eighteen days was Nbor

us slowly up the Australian
coast.-a change from the fresh

months for the Trade- winds;

180 mils inland while I for
a start worked in a boat yard,

more for us than we could possi
bly do for him.
Then at the chosen time, April
1955, we headed up inside the
Great Barrier Reef to Ahursday
Is. off the northern-most point
of Australia- on to Portugese
Timor where we learned that
however lovable small monkeys
may be, they don't make good
ship mates.
On to Christmas Island busy
with phosphate production and
even more impressive for its
land crabs, some as big as one's
head and with strength in their
claws sufficient to break every
bone in your body. It's not safe
to sleep out at night on Christ-
mas Island.
Next stop the Cocos-Keeling
Islands with their highest point
the tops of thle coconut palms
only 4Q feet. above water line.
For many people the interest in
these islands lies in the fact
that -Quantas Airlines stop there

terest lay in seeing Home Is. the

a passage of 16 days and a
glimpse of Madagascar we sail-
ed in to Durban. Here the South

us, to refit ,Marco' and equip

Community Weekly Putblished Sunday Morning


An item on the front page of a recent Havana POST announced
that the Committee of Hotelmen of Cuba has promised their support
to the Mayor in financing next year's carnival, as a means o6
preventing the abandoning, by the municipality of these costly cel?-
Some time ago, the Municipality of Havana said that it could no
longer finance the carnival celebrations single-handed and the move
by the hotelmen was one of the first to encourage the city to attempt
to find some means of continuing the pre-Easter fiestas.
It seems to us that while the future of the Havana Carnival is in :1
condition of uncertainty, this would be a suitable opportunity to
study all aspects of the celebrations and decide, quitq apart from the
financial aspect of the matter, whether or not the carnival is in the
high public interest.
Just before the commencement of the carnival in Rio de Janeiro
last year, the police issued a series of regulations by which the fiesta
would be governed. They banned Bikini suits in fact, all bathing
suits in the carnival, and prohibited the squirting of perfumed al-
cohol on celebrators, on the ground that it might constitute a fire haz-.
ard. They also banned bonfires, because they kill the grass in the pu-
blic parks, and prohibited the wearing of military uniforms and
priestly garb, on the ground that some revellers might not always
behave in a manner reflecting credit on these distinctive forms or
About this same time, The Havana Post's ecclesiastical contributor,
Rev. Father Manuel Fernandez, O.S.A., dealt with the general propo-
sition of the carnivals, in his weekly column in this newspaper. .,What
is sought in the carnivals?. Father Hermandez asked, aIs it the
sculpturesque pageantry of crude materialism? If that be so, what
contributions do they make to the organization, greatness and hap-
piness of Cuban homes? Do carnivals increase patriotism ? In what
manner do they further culture, gentility in the man, the beauty and
the virtue of the woman 7.
And then, answering his own rhetorical questions, Fattier lcernan-
dez said that carnivals act as agents of exhilaration, .which, for a
short time, give zest to the body, only to let it fall later into depressi-
ve sorrow..
What Father Hernandez condemned were not the carnivals so much
as the immoral excesses which such fiestas sometimes bring with
them. ie recognized that they provide moments of .ioy.and happiness
- and the people occasionally must have the opportunity of enjoying
themselves. But he said that neither in Rio nor in Havana or anywhere
else should the carnival be a sort of license for immorality, immodes.
ty and indecency.
Even if it were true that the Havana Carnival is a great attraction
lor tourists from tife United'States which has never been establish-
ed to our satisfaction to be the case that in itself would not be suf-
ficient justification for holding the fiestas if the evils cited by Father
Hernnndez must necessarily be a part of the celebrations.
Now is the time for all of these factors to be weighed, before any
further steps are taken to remove some of the financial burden of the
carnival from the back of the municipality Father Hernandez reminded
us that in the train of the great fire which Nero started in Rome fzr
his own fiendish enjoyment were the ashes o[ a ruined city, and vwe
think that the good padre's observations are well Wdrthy of conside-
ration before definite plans are made for a carnival next year.

countries favor. The International
Coffee Organization formed last
week in Rio de Janeiro has been
turned into a promotional and re-
search group.

Most producing countries in the

it would be a regulatory group,

The organization, according to
its present bylaws and constitu-
tion, will attempt to 'get the pub-
lic to drink more and stronger,
coffee. If successful, this effort
will increase dollar income from
the beans and reduce surpluses.
However, the method is more in-
direct than raising prices by with-
holding supplies..

Not only the public but roast-
ers also would prefer a rise in
consumption to a rise in prices.'
The National Coffee Association
suggested last month that the pro
blem- of overproduction could be
solved by introducing coffee to
new drinkers, increasing consump
tion by present users and inducing
the public to drink a stronger

Latin-American coffee produc-
ers had hoped that the internatio-
nal organization would parallel
the agreement signed by seven
countries in Mexico City last Oct-
ober. The seven decided to limit
-coffee shipments and to spread
their shipments evenly, through-
out the year rather than utmping
the crop right after harvest.
The African and Asian represent

nations from Latin America, Afri-
ca and Asia have met and formed

an agreement.
The framework now exists for
regulatory measures should the
members decide it is advisable.
The importance of promotion of
coffee drinking should not be mi-
himized. The Pan American, Cof-
fee Bureau is conducting such a
campaign in this country, but
little is being done elsewhere.
The international range of the
new organization will result in
promotional endeavors through-
out the world.

Consumption has been gaining
in Europe. If it continues to ex-
pand, the present overproduction
may be transformed into merely
an adequate supply. It is health-
ier economically to raise income
through increased sales than by
higher prices.

The agreement to exchange tech

can be of extreme importance to
Asian and African countries. The-
se areas are just beginning to be-
come important exporters and

And you housewives in Miami
think you have it tough! .

These are the workers. So are
the women and men in the sis-
al fields and the factory- for
$lto $2.50 per day. Or those in
the spinning factory or the cof-
fee plantations, the streets and
the shops for similar wages.
What about those who aren't
working at all? Some are will-
ing, and bitter because they're
hungry. Some are lazy, I sup-
pose; but all Haitians insist the
people really want to work.

Development of the banana
industry in Haiti to a new,
high level in the economy of
the country is in prospect
through American private in-
vestment and management,
According to information here
coming from the office of Pro
sident Francois Duvalier.

Negotiations between the go-
vernment of Haiti and Mr. Dan
Taylor, president of the West
India Fruit & Steamship Co., of
West Palm Beach, Fla., and Nor-
folk, Va., are near completion for
the company to purchase or lease
land to start new banana planta-
tions and market the production
by transport in company-operated
ships to the United States.

The West India Fruit & Steam-
ship Co. and its affiliates have
had highly successful experience
for many years in the importation
and distribution in the United
States of bananas and other tropi-
cal fruits and vegetables.

In addition to their own entei-
prise, Mr. Taylor is extending as-
sistance from the West India Co.
Sto .Habanex, the Haitian Banana
Export Co., operated by Mr. Jean
Elie, president, of Port-au-Prince,
which now buys and markets bia-
nanas produced by thousands of
individual farmers in Haiti. The
American company, Mr. Taylor
states, is in no way connected
with Habanex, but will extend
loans to Habanex for immediate
technical assistance, equipment,
fertilizers and banana plants for
Distribution among Haitian far-
mers to expand production and
improve quality.

Once flourishing and third only
to coffee and sugar in export value
of agricultural crops, the banana
industry suffered a severe decline
in recent .'e-ars through political
disturbance. and the destruction
of banana trees in the 1954 hurri-
cane which swept the south half
of the island.

So they all are waiting for
the president from xthe mid-
class,,> after a century of 4thiev-
ing leaders from the high classD
to put them to work. They want
schools and hospitals most of
all. They want jobs. They want
better houses.

,,President Magloire and his
cabinet said oh, the people like
it in slums; they all right'* said
the spokesman for a group I in-
terroged. rHe make us so angry
we say never another president
from the high class.
Haiti can't miss as a tourist
spot. It's the friendliest, most
picturesque of the island nat-
ions. Pan American World Air-
ways pioneered the travel rou-
tes, since 1929. It has a firm foo,
thold and the best facilities
still. But other lines will come.
And so will I.


President Duvalier hails the
new banana program as -a major
step forward in the interests oL
Haitian- economy and an example
of worthwhile investment by Ame-
rican private enterprise for which
Haiti is eager-.

The President said that assis
tance from the West India Fruit
Co. to Hauinex is the means by
which thoudin:..s of Haitian far-
mers who once depended largely
upon bananas for their livelihooJ
can now start again or expand
their banana production.

I.1 am delighted with Mr. Tay-
lor's program,, the Presi dent
stated, Land the government of
Haiti will give his company all
possible assistance and coopera-
tion in a climate of peace and
security. .

Mr. Taylor stressed that the
West India Fruit & Steamship Co.
is going into the banana business
in Haiti without asking for any
monopolistic concessions. .I have
the highest respect and praise for
President Duvalier and his admi-
nistration-, Mt. Taylor said, -in
giving us a real welcome and op-
poitunity to purchase or lease
plantations, raise bananas, ship
and market them in the United
Stat2S. I believe in the future of
the banana business iii Haiti'.

Technicians, and specialists ia
banana production from the West
India Fruit Co. are now in Haiti
studying locations for plantation
sites and planning the company's
program. Their reports show nu-
merous locations in Haiti where
soi! and climatic conditions arc
so well adapted to banana cuJturt,
that Mr. Taylor believes the qua-
lity can be improved over evc'i
the standard of former years when
Haitian bananas were prized on
the market for their higi qualiv
and distinctive flavor.

Just a slight reflection before
combing the beach this week. It
is this. Combe beaches else-where
and what happens. You realize
that in Haiti combing is like sput-,
nik building it takes time and pa-
tience and a spade not a combe.
If you dig Codgressman Donald
L. Jackson you find that he truly
likes Haiti and he has seen a lot
of territory over the past 12 years
in the United States Congress and
in the Pacific with the famous
First Marine division during
World War Two. The 'Gentleman
of the Pacific. concluded his his
brief airport press conference
