t0 8 THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 15, 1922 GOOD NEWS FOR MEN-THAT WILL HAKE YOU SMILE A Dusky Island Flappers Even Roll Their Own, Excelling American Beauties 4 iityhi Mat -aiti HAWAII LIKES SHORT SITS Phenomenal! Sensational! ' J t i CAPE HAITIEN, Not. 14 Haiti often has been referred to a a bank ward nation, but in dress the Haitian woman of the predominating peasant class long anticipated the American flap pers in two of her most dfstine tire trits. Short skirts and the trick of "rolling her own" wore adopted here Ion? before the flapper took them to her heart. Short skirts are a necessity to the woman who spends her days toiling in a garden or riding a burro. They wore them short in Haiti when Andrew Jackson was in the White House, and the style has not changed. Marines Aid It was in 1915 that the peas ant woman began to "roll her cwn.M In that year the occupa tion forces of American marines and shore leave parties of blue jackets brought a golden trail of Amorican coin to the impoverish ed island. Regiments and ships bought freely in the markets, and the women reaped the benefit. Haiti is a country of caste, and the possession of shoes and stockings marks a decided social advance for the peasant class. They Invested their earnings in Chen, but drew the line at gar ters, and necessity taught them a substitute. Women Are It is now a common sight to see the women of Haiti on the roads leading to the city markets, seated side fashion on their gray burros, whip out stockings at the city limits, don them while the little --burros amble patiently on, and then give them the final twist and roll before laoing their shoes. When the day's work is done, .the reverse is accomplished as the city limits drop behind, and stockings are packed away until the next state occasion. Arrays Are Gawdy. There Is one distinctive fea ture of women's dress In Haitian peasant circles, however, that will hardly find favor in the so phisticated eyes of the American flapper. Frequently one sees andng the universal faded blue and white attire, one of red, white and blue, with the three colors arranged in fantastic pat terns of stripes and squares, usu lly topped by a brlgifred ban danna turban. A peasant woman thus arrayed, accustomed to carry burdens on her -head from in fancy. , strides along in 'this gay costume with the carriage of a Greek goddess. She is a "peniten te" who has broken one of the laws of the peasant code of con duct, and her self-elected cos tume openly proclaims to her sisters that she has backslidden from their curious code and Is wiping It out by public penance. SUSS EVE KEEPS MED ID IE JOB Dr, Nigman, German Col., Relates Amusing Incident or rast uays BERLIN, Nov. 14. East Afrl, can superstition and Ingenuity are amusingly illustrated in an Incident related by the German colonel. Dr. E. Nlgmann, in his memories of the days when he was in charge of colonial admin istration in that part of the world. One of his most reliable aides, he says, was a native lieutenant colonel who had lost an eye dur ing one of the local expeditions, and wore a glass one in its place. This officer was assigned to su perintend the erection of a post office in a rural district. The in habitants had long been delin quent in tax payments and con sequently each male adult was required to meet hra civic obliga tions by putting in a week's labor tne new government buildine. One day while the native la borers were industriously at work under his vigilant Watch, the lieutenant-colonel was temporarily called away. On leaving tho building, he took out the glass eye, placed It on one of the wails and announced to the workers: "Look here, my men. I must go now, but I am leaving my eye to keep tab on you and to see that you keep on working while I am away." It was with considerable self-satisfaction that he returned, to find his gang hard at work. Next day the lieutenant-colonel had another summons to leave hid post. Again he placed the glass eye In charge and left Re turning, he noticed from afar that bull ling operations were at a standstill and all of his dusky help snoririf peacefully. Upon looking cor his "foreman" eye' he found it carefully covered with an old hat.
