Such events are common en

The latest arrivals, however, were
marked by the fact that they
brought with them a tribal treas

and tankards, hammered from the
pure metal and each marked bv
the smith who made it.
Experts who have been privi

that they are at least four cen

came from India.
Only a few families comnrlse
the treasure-owning tribe. They
consider their heirlooms as al
most sacred and permit strangers
to see them only as a special privilege.
Rumania has about 300.000
gypsies within their present bor

added to her domain when the

HAITI STILL HEARD
By HAROLD P. BRAMAN
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
(AP) Voodooism in Haiti is
fast disintegrating before the
march of civilization.
Americans, here since 1915
when the occupation of the island
republic began, a largely respon
sible for the "partial wiping out.
of the cult worship brought here
from Africa, and the prediction is
made even by "Haitians that un
less voodoo ceremonies are com
mercialized for the tourist, the
rites are doomed to extinction.
Roads, education, airplanes
and energetic activity of churches
have made such inroads on the
mjstlc rites that the cult worship
pers are found now only in the
remote recesses of the mountains,
which cross and recross Haiti
from all angles. Moreover, the
American marines have silenced
many of the voodoo drums.
The visitor to the republic may,
if he or -she is lucky In native ac
quaintances, be able to witness
what is called a Congo dance, a
form of voodooism. Rut few white
men ever have witnessed the full
rites of the emotjonal bush
blacks, carried out to the limit
with human sacrifices.
A score of years ago a large
numDer or the population had an
interest "or were tf-A -nrtiM.
pants in voodooism as a sort of re
ligion. The educated classes had
nothing to do with the en It hut
even today they embrace only a
tenth of the population of 2,500.-
More than .90 per cent of the
population still is termed illiter
ate by well informed observers,
but education is being pushed
constantly among the hundreds of
thousands who are unable to read
and know only a limited number
of Creole words to use in speech.
American officials and educa
ted Haitians hope they can wipe
out voodooism altogether. The
admission is made by them, how
ever, that the peasants have so
little entertainment, a substitute
of a more wh'olesome nature may
be necessary before the dances,
at least, are stopped. -
Though seeking fun mostly in
cock fights and imbibing an "un
tamed" alcoholic drink called
clairine on Sunday, the Haitian
malee peasant still likes an occa

Saturday night, to give vent to
