CENTS A COPT ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED W1KE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY AUGUST 18 1934 THIS PAPER CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 268 Memories Are Stirred Marine Vorps Men Recall Old Days in Haiti By HERBERT PJLUMMER ASHINGTON Aug 18 departure of the 1e a t hernecks from Haiti or dered by Presi dent Roosevelt as concrete evidence of his good neighbor policy toward the coun tries to the south stirs mem ories of those within that cele brated corps To one marine officer in Wash ington however the evacuation of the marines takes on special mean ing He is Capt Jack has done more perhaps than an other person to record in histor the occupation of Haiti by marines The tall slender hard feature Craige epitomizes the popular con ception of a devildog At various times in his colorfu career Captain Craige has been th inspiring genius of marine corp publicity in Washington What Went On He came to headquarters here a the close of the World was as aid to the man who has been dubbed the greatest leatherneck of em all Gen Gabe Lejeune las commander of the second division which included the marine brigadt and now in retirement at Lexington Va as president of the Virginia Military institute Craige voluntarily assumed thi job of making Uncle Sams sea sol diers as well known as their breth ren in the army and navy How wel he succeeded is known to every branch of service Yet it is with Haiti and the ma rine occupation of that republic thai Craiges name 13 remembered prin cipally For three years he was district commander in the interior HaituWhenhe cameoutJieMd seejj and an Arabian nights tale of adven ture His book perhaps better than any document extant permits an out sider a glimpse of what really went on in Haiti while the marines were in control It also records for his story the strange place Haiti occu pied in the colonial annals of the world Drums Never Quiet Craiges headquarters in Haiti were at a little mountain village called Hinche where child voices rose in the music of Mozart Bach and Verid at the church in high and holy carols against a background of drums Dance drums voodoo drums he wrote The drums were never quiet in Hinche Down at the fords of the rivers they throbbed and wailed When the sweet child voices were raised in the pure and noble music of the chorals the drums seemed to redouble their sobbing and shrieking like ancient genii of the hills enraged at the loss of chil drens souls Its difficult to imagine a hard boiled marine captain writing in this manner His book abounds with such observations ranging from the strange customs of Haiti to the ac tivities of the marines themselves His account of the difficulties en countered as chief of police at Port auPrince is as vivid as his descrip tions of voodooisrn in what he choosea to call black Bagdad DENY STRATO RECORD SMASHED Rodeo Will Be Feature of North Iowas Big Annual Event The rumble of trucks clatter of scopes of hammers bellowing cat tle the chugchug of a fire engine
