Trigger-Happy Men Keeping Watch Over Frightened Dictator By ROBERT BERRELLEZ PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (AP) —Haitian roulette is more complicated but no less deadly than its Russian counterpart. Suppose you drive by the heavily guarded national palace at night on four very bad tires. "If you have a blowout," explained a Haitian businessman, "it's the end. The explosion will draw a barrage of fire from every trigger-happy guard on duty." Even If apocryphal, the account of this new local sport serves to dramatize two facts of life in the FALSE TEETH That Loosen Need Not Embarrass Many wearers of false teeth have suffered real embarrassment because their plate dropped, slipped or wobbled at Just the wrong time. Do not Uve In fear of this happening to you. Just sprinkle a little FASTEETH, the alkaline (non-acid) powder, on your plates. Hold false teeth more firmly, so they feel more comfortable. Does not sour. Checks "plate odor breath". Get FASTEETH at drug counters everywhere. Haiti of dictator Francois (Papa Doc) Duvalier: 1. Very real fear of a blowout in front of the palace is only one of many varieties of terror flourishing here. 2. The main force of this terror is the palace, the arsenal-fortress which Papa a bizarre pact with his sense of historic mission, has pledged to turn into a "Himalaya of bodies, rivers of blood" in any attempt to depose him. Two small invasions by anti- Duvalier armed bands this month resulted in a wave of reprisals here and in the interior demonstrating that Papa Doc is not making idle threats. Scores are believed to have been killed or imprisoned—where death sometimes is the only parole—on suspicion of disloyalty. Operating in the invasion area, Duvalier's special security corps, the Tonton Macoutes, are said to have hurled hand grenades into homes of those thought to have even smiled at rebels. There were reports of execu­ tions of officers and civilians in the ill-famed prison of Ft. Diman* che. These new victims are only a fraction of those thought to have paid with their lives or limbs for real or imagined lack of faith in Duvalier since he came to power in 1957. Political reprisal business became so brisk in his time v that Duvalier converted the basement section of the National Palace and the one-time military barracks at Ft. Dimanche into special prisons equipped with torture cells. Rut the northern frontier inva sions by his enemies have exposed signs that Papa Doc is now a captive of the fear he exploited to stay in power. Duvalier distrusts the army which he purposely weakened while arming his own civilian militia and Tonton Macoutes. Aware of the long tradition of fragile loyalties among Haiti's partisans of power and of the spreading unrest, the dictator has 7 PIICE Living Room Ensembles No Extras To Buy 2 Piece Modern Living Room Suit*.
