TRANS-ATLANTIC SWAP:

Medico Offers Moroccan Rugs for Jeep

By JO MISNER
Dr. D. C. Larvaron, of Azem-
mour, Morocco, wantsato trade
about 25 handmade native rugs
for a more up-to-date means of
transportation-a jeep station wa-
gon.,
And he hopes to find a partner
at the University who will help
arrange the trans-Atlantic swap.
IN A LETTER to The Daily, Dr.
Larvaron explained that strict ex-
change rates and a black market
on dollars in Morocco led him to
by-pass the normal channels in
getting the vehicle.
"No one here can get Ameri-
can made goods except wealthy
businessmen," he wrote. "So I
decided if I want to get a car,
I'll have to form some sort of
association." ,
Outlining the first of two plans
for arranging the swap, the French
medico suggested that a group of
people here might lend him be-
tween $5 and $100 apiece, the total
reaching the price of the station
wagon.
* * *
IN EXCHANGE, he promised to
send each person handmade Mor-
occan products from an "inex-
haustible list" of goods including
chiseled copper trays, glazed pot-
tery vases and plates, ancient sil-
ver arms and Moroccan rugs.
"I specify between $5 - the
value of a woolen bag - to
$100, the price of a superb rug
with a certificate of its origin,"
he continued. ....
"This should certainly be in-
teresting, for, not being a mer-
chant, I would send them to you,
at low prices."
Although he described himself
as a man of "above average
means," Dr. Larvaron said it would
be hard for him to get all the
funds at once and he would prefer
to send the goods here regularly
over a two-year period.
* * *
BY A SECOND PLAN, the doc-
tor offered to take a student of
French or Arabic into his home
and provide room and board for
a year in exchange for the trans-
action.
."However, this last solution
couldn't start until 1951, since
I now live about 80 kilometers
from Casablanca. But I will de-
finitely be at Casablanca next
November," he added.
Buying a French car would be
a lot simpler, he admitted, because
the government would lend him
306,000 francs repayable in two
years. .
"ON THE OTHER HAND, there
aren't French cars equivalent to
the American ones," he explained.
"Recent styles have put lilliputian
cars with six speeds on the mar-
ket."
"I have two children and my
parents along with me and, for

six,ethese cars are really too
little."
French models sell for 500,000
francs on the average, while simi-
lar American cars cost three times
as much at Casablanca, he pointed
out. In 1939, the comparative pric-
es were practically reversed, he
said.
DURING THE WAR, the 35-
year old doctor lived at the vil-
lage of St. George until he "lost
everything" in 1944.
"At present I am fairly well
established. again, and it is now
that I think of the auto," he
continued.

Dr. Larvaron explained that he
hit on the exchange plan after
readingran article about The Daily
in the revue "Echo." "I felt that
through you I might be able to
execute this project which former-
ly seemed impossible," he added.
Any individual or group inter-
ested in sponsoring the project
may contact The Daily for further
information.

PARIS-Students lacking pro-
per housing sleep in the lecture
rooms at many European univer-
sities, according to UNESCO pub-
lication, "Universities In Need."
