Native Way Of life MEN'S WEAR LONG MEADOW SHOPPING CENTO VILLAGE on the Tapanahony River in Surinam Jane Jones, live and work with the people. On in which U.S. missionaries, Morgan and Mary the roof at left are round pieces of native bread. BY W. JOSEPH Written for tin Associated Pross Tamenta, with the tribal re cloth draped around his loins an wearing some cotton threads his long, black, matted hair, crep into the middle of the circle h tribe had formed around 39-yea old Morgan Jones. Here, too, were all the pa 1 aphernalia of Tamenta's craft E witch doctor of the Amerindia Trio Tribe. For the first time th things were easy for tribe mem bers to look at because Tament had "broken" their power. "Eripima ke sewa wai" he sai with a strong voice. "I'm, fre of sin." A couple of the men repeate it after him. Then, with the hel of Morgan Jones, he carried ev erything, which he had former! guarded in the dark seclusion c his hut, to the river. Free of si: meant to Tamenta also free of a the means to maintain his power After a couple of moments th quick-flowing waters of the Tap anahony River of southern Sur inam closed over the past. I "God's country," as the Trios ca. the small village where Morgar and Mary Jane Jones work a missionaries, the past was buriec and the Lord would get Hii chance. The Joneses arrived in Suri nam from New Jersey somewha over two years ago, sent by the nondenominational Door to Life Mission in Philadelphia. When the mission terminated its work there they remained, under the Wesl Indies Mission. The West Indies Mission maintains three stations "in the field" in Surinam: the village at Tapan- ahony. another at the Alalapadoe and still another at the Lawa, both part of the country. Iwan and Doris Schoen, he from New York and she from West Virginia, live at the Lawa and take their three children, Tommy, 4, Becky, 5, and Dennis, 6, as well as their complete dental and medical outfits on their periodic visits to the other two missions. The Schoens. 31 and 29, followed an intensified medical course for missionary work along with their theological training. Morgan Jones' father and grandfather had been Baptist ministers and he always wanted to be a minister. But after he decided to be a foreign missionary he toured the United States collecting pledges of money to finance the work the couple would be doing. When the Joneses went to live with the Amerindians, he says, "We learned first their language started to trust us and we started to tell them about the Lord. "You know, we asked them outright what they themselves thought was wrong in their life. And they answered adultery, angry speaking, murder, stealing and lessons or church. Underneath allying. ."From then on it was easy.. We told them that according to our belief those were the wrong things, too. And we told them that we eall things like this a sin and that our Lord doesn't accept anyone who is with sin." Jones holds a daily lesson or service. Sometimes he participates as a member of the group, sometimes explains a difficult subject. Often there is singing of Sunday school-type songs, with the Trios usually making their own lyrics. Mike, 14, Danny, 12, Maxie, who plays the accordion, and John, 8, Jones sing along. A sister, Nancy, 16, is in school in the United States. The family lives in a aluminum, partly pina (a partly palm tree leaf) house on stilts. Under neath is a space big enough to get all the villagers together for so stays one luxury item, a washing machine which runs on the same small engine which serves the wireless. Jones teaches his sons and the Trio children to write and read Trio. He had studied how to spell phonetically any language and put it in writing. So his Trios can for the first time "see" what they say. And they are learning to write and to read in selfmade srimers. Morgan Jones writes N; they repeat N; he connects the N with an E; they say NC. He puts NE NE together and their faces light up when they pronouce it. NENE 'means "I see." For CugieJ Its A Nice Lane To Follow BY DICK KLEINER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. NEW YORK -(NEA) -Xavier Cugat is still making Latin mu- ic, on an international scale, but his heart really isn't in it any more. "If it weren't for Abbe," Cugie ays, "I wouldn't be in this busi- ess now. I much prefer painting and I can afford to retire nd just paint. But Abbe wants o act, so I sfay with the music. "Se's made 22 films in Italy nd one day one of them brought to this country and he'll be established as an actress. smaller rivers in the southeastern Then I can quit and just paint." Abbe, of course, is his lovely fife and vocalist. Abbe Lane. He eels he should continue to pro- ide her with a showcase -- name- his orchestra -- until she is stablishcd in the U.S. as an actress. And so he keeps on taking lis baton and his music around le world. The surprising thing is mt the Xovier Cugat we know is jite different from the Xavier ugat the rest of the world knows. "Playing in Europe." he says, is different. In most Spanish and alian clubs, they have t w o hows. The early one -- that is ir the American tourist -- is full : the native music. That's what le tourists want to hear. But tie natives don't go to that show. "They go to the later show-: 2 a.m. That's the show we play hen we are there. That is the low for the natives themselves. ic--we must do the whole "West Side Story' or they get very angry. We don't do much Latin music in Spain or Italy." While he's in Europe this summer. Cugie and Abbe will make 13 half-hour and 13 hour-long television shows. These are designed for sale in a year or so to American stations, plus other stations around the world. To get around the language barriers. Cugie is simply using the universal l guage of music. "We'll do songs." he says, "in whatever language they were ori- jinally written. The spoken introductions we'll do three times -in English, Spanish and Italian. So we can sell the show almost everywhere." SIDEWALK SALE! THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, - 10 A. M. to 9 P. M.
