The Pay Bill H. R. 8469 should be passed by the full House of
Representatives before too long. It has been granted an open rule
with 2 hours of debate on the bill. However, no definite time has
been set up for Floor action.
If this bill ever becomes law it will or I should say may look
like this:
Persons retired before Oct. 1, 1956 would receive about 11%
increase and persons retiring after the above date 6%. Surviving
spouses of persons who retired or died prior to April 1, 1948, would
receive a total increase of 15% or $10 per month, whichever is less.
The bill also provides increases for other spouse survivors on the
same basis as awarded the retiree spouses. The bill also proposes
to change the cost of living increase formula. H. R. 8469 would
liberalize the cost of living increases in the future. Instead of
having to wait at least 3 months after the Consumer Price Index
has shown a 3% increase for a whole year, we would get the
matching increase when the Consumer Price Index has been up
3% for 3 months.
One section of the bill does not have a very good chance of being
part of pay bill if it eventually becomes law. This section pertains
to future retirees and the bill proposes to raise the surviving
spouses benefits to 60%.
Now is the time to let your congressman know that you want
some action on Bill H. R. 8469.
Consult your local Social Security Office on recent pay increases
and Medicare if you are 65 or older and retired prior to July 1, 1960.

The following article appeared in the Dallas Morning News, Mr.
Swanson is a member of the P. C. Society of Fla. Ed.
Frederick Glenn Swanson of Tyler, known better to readers of The
Dallas News "letters to the editor" column by his initials, was in
the seat of honor recently at a special luncheon held at Municipal
University, Akron, Ohio.
They're tearing down the old athletic building at the college,
where its first basketball team won glory over 60 years ago, and are
making plans to build a brand new sports center.
Swanson, at 84, is the only survivor of that first basketball team
of Buchtel College, which was the name of the institution in its early
days. He was graduated there in 1904, and is also the only surviving
member of his class.
Last week college officials telephoned Swanson and invited him
to attend the luncheon affair.
"I told them I didn't know whether they were honoring antiquity
or progress," said attorney Swanson. "I was not sure whether they
were holding a wake for the old or celebrating the new. But I told
them I would be there."
Swanson has been many places since he left old Buchtel College
and its basketball court. He blames this on a bad case of "itching
It was itching feet, he said, that took him to Panama in 1905,
about the time they were getting under way to build the canal. He
was there until 1918, three years after it had been completed.
"It was a live wire bunch during the construction days," recalled
Swanson. "But after the work was over things got dull so I left."
His itching feet have carried him into 42 of the 50 states and into
20 countries, Swanson said.

Dalvin Heilman retired July 21 from the Canal Zone Police Div-
ision. A humble but significant tribute to his volunteer work is the
David S. Heilman Vocational School, named in his honor by a small
group of Panamanian youths he had aided in establishing a modest
school for the study of refrigeration, the repair of electric appli-
ances, and other phases of vocational efforts.
It all started about 2 years ago when Heilman was on duty in the
area of the residence of the Canal Zone Governor. It was a Sunday
afternoon and his attention was attracted by a large Panamanian
family walking past his duty area. He started a conversation with
the father and asked if all the children were his. Yes, was the
answer. The family now numbered six and another was on the way.
The man's name was Justo Mouricio Fernandez, refrigeration and
air-conditioning technician, who at the time had no steady employ-
This casual encounter between the Zone police officer and the
Panamanian laborer was the start of a sincere friendship that later
culminated in the establishment of the little vocational school in
a corner of Rio Abajo, in El Porvenir suburb of Panama City.
Police Officer Heilman visited the Fernandez family at their home
on Calle 17 Oeste and they took him to El Porvenir suburb. There,
in a room where a youth named Marcelino Moya resided, five men
met every night to study refrigeration under the direction of Mr.
"We are deeply grateful to Mr. Heilman," says Fernandez with
sincere enthusiasm, "because he showed us that by doing our share
we could multiply the value of the assistance that he and others
gave us."

The school grew, and with the school the suburb grew. And the
contagious spirit of cooperation that made establishment of the
school possible was reflected in the enthusiasm of the other residents
of the community-100 families who work together for the benefit
of all. The result of their efforts can be seen in the highway enter-
ing El Porvenir, the concrete bridge over a ravine, the water main,
the electric lights, all the work of the residents without outside aid.
When Fernandez learned that Heilman's retirement was approach-
ing, he organized a small reception so that all the residents could
meet this police officer who for 2 years aided the people of El
Porvenir and who was known only to the students at the school.
Heilman went to the Isthmus for the first time in 1932, as a soldier
in the U. S. Army Engineer Corps. When he left the Army, in 1939,
he started work as a Panama Canal lock guard and then joined the
police force. In 1945 he transferred to the Motor Transportation
Division and in 1950 transferred back to the Canal Zone Police
He is a native of Arcadia, Pa., where he was born February 6,
1914. He is married to Bessy Lee Phillips, who was born in Gorgas
Hospital. They are the parents of two daughters, Beth E. Tremblay,
an X-ray technician at Gorgas Hospital, and Janice Lea Pepper,
who lives in Stanford, Fla.
Arthur L. Endicott, who started his U. S. Government service at
the age of 12 when he ran away from home and joined the Navy,
retired as Postmaster, Cristobal, with nearly 45 years, Government
service behind him.
His Canal service totals 29 years, 11 months, 20 days and has all
been in the Postal Division. He received the outstanding perform-
ance rating last August.
But one of his proudest possessions is a document presented him,
signed by 545 employees in the Panama Canal's Administration
Building, Balboa Heights.
In August of this year he would have completed 45 years' Govern-
ment service and by retiring in May he misses his 30-year Canal
service button by 10 days.
They plan to travel in the States for a few months and about
the first of July will be in La Jolla, Calif., where they plan to reside.
They sailed on the SS Cristobal, and from New Orleans will go to
Florida. They hope to be in La Jolla about the first of July and have
taken the first steps toward residence by renting a postal box.

The story of the Panama Canal, related by a Canal Zone Guide to
passengers on board the Dutch ship Rijndam during a recent transit
of the waterway, showed up under a 6-column headline in 10 Nether-
lands newspapers.
The unexpected publicity was the work of Guus de Jong, a pro-
fessional newsman who happened to be a passenger on the ship.
The commentary delivered in Dutch by Netherlands-born Canal
Zone Guide Charles Van Bueren, served as the basis for the il-
lustrated article, prominently featured in all papers for a large
Dutch chain.
By coincidence, Van Bueren is a former reporter for one of the
papers in the chain. An accomplished linguist, he speaks Spanish,
English, German, French, and Indonesian in addition to his native
Dutch. He was employed by the Panama Canal Information Office
Guide Service in August 1962.

Santa Claus, who for 11 months of the year wore the uniform of a
Canal Zone police officer, has packed his red, fur-trimmed suit and
his shiny boots and his Santa hat and has gone to live in St. Peters-
burg, Fla.
On the police roster he was listed for 20 years as George C. An-
derson, and he lived in the Canal Zone town of Los Rios with Mrs.
Santa Claus, or rather Mrs. Anderson.
George "Santa Claus" Anderson, also familiarly known as Andy,
who ho-ho-ho'd through the Canal Zone Christmas seasons for over
19 years, actually completed his police duties June 17 when at 2
p.m. he blew a loud blast on his police whistle outside the Admin-
istration Building, Balboa Heights, and said his good-byes, and
drove off.
He was sent to the Canal Zone, where from 1942 to 1945 he was
stationed at Fort Davis with the 902d Coast Artillery.
He liked the Isthmus and when he received an honorable discharge
from the Army, he was sworn into the Canal Zone police force
almost immediately.
All his service as a police officer has been on the Pacific side of
the Isthmus. He worked in Cocoli, Pedro Miguel, and was with the
Ancon police station when it was closed. For almost 13 years he
has been with the Balboa Police District and his duty station has
been at the Administration Building.
In all those years "I've never been late, and never called in sick,"
he says.
Police Officer Anderson proudly recalls that he never turned down
a request for the presence of Santa Claus. He has visited sick
children in their homes, and has appeared as Santa Claus in churches
and schools, besides his traditional appearance as Santa Claus at the
Panama Canal retail stores.
Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have a home waiting for them in St.
Petersburg, Fla. His Santa Claus suits-he has three of them and
uses them all during the Christmas season-are carefully packed and
ready for use wherever he's called upon in Florida.
Carefully packed, too, is the goldplated badge "Andy" was pre-
sented by his fellow police officers who engraved on the badge the
number 202, Andy's number as a Canal Zone police office for 20
years and 17 days.

York, especially for the occasion, were member of the College Ave-
nue Presbyterian Church in Alton, Illinois, during Dr. Goddard's
pastorate there. Commenting upon Dr. Goddard's persistence in

Alton, only to be made into Presbyterians by Cran Goddard!"
Also present for the occasion were Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Stetler,
from Kokomo, Indiana. Mr. Stetler was chairman of the Board of
Trustees of the Union Church of Balboa, Panama Canal Zone, while

The sounds that accompany the passage of a vessel through Mira-

trait in sound which won third prize recently for Frederic J. Berest,
Canal Zone .Guide (Interpreter) ,in a Popular Photography Magazine

flores Locks by Cleveland C. Soper, Chief of the Panama Canal Re-
production Branch, who assisted Berest in selecting the material and
editing the tape.
Other sounds in addition to the familiar clangs and toots were
the clumping of the rising stem valves as they open the culverts, the
whir of the bull wheel, the whistle of the ship as it completes transit,
and the ringing of the bells on the old mules.

fairly new field. It was submitted in competition with entries from
all over the United States.

An article appeared in the Tampa Tribune with a picture of Peggy

daughter of Mrs. Abraham Halliday, Sebring, Fla., a sister of Mrs.
T. L. Boyd, San Antonio, Tex. and, is married to Robert Ortt,
Sebring, Fla. She is a Highlands County sheriff's deputy. Excerpts
Sebring-Ever wondered what it's like to be a female deputy

sheriff in uniform ? Highlands County Sheriff Broward Coker was
one of the first in Florida to outfit his girls in uniform.
The uniform, however, has a deeper meaning to many. Whether
it's identified in the office, post office or on the street, it's a sign
of help and usually the wearer is ready to listen to your problem.
And, there's the sheepish parking meter violator who confesses:
"You wouldn't give me a ticket would you-I've just stepped out
of the car for a minute." This always give the lady deputy a
chuckle the sheriff's department doesn't hand out parking tickets.

Five of the seven Panama Canal Explorer Scouts who, with their
adviser, George Folger, traveled down the Mississippi River to New
Orleans by canoe, traveled back to their Isthmian homes on the SS
Cristobal, enjoying the luxury of showers and good meals.
* The 1,570-mile trip down the Mississippi River was made in
three fiberglass canoes, two purchased for the Explorer Scouts by
the American Legion.
That's really how the whole idea of the trip started. The American
Legion Post donated two of the boats and then a check was made on
shipping expense. The canoes were purchased from a Minnesota
company and someone jokingly remarked, after looking at the
shipping cost figure, "Why don't you boys take the boats down
the Mississippi to New Orleans?"
George Folger, transmission linesman for the Panama Canal Or-
ganization, offered to act as adviser to the Canal Zone Explorer

Scouts on the trip. He is still in the United States, attending an
Elks' convention.

Farnsworth, Ed Mulroy, Monty Trim, and Fred Fox. Bob Daniel
remained in the States to attend school, and Mario Calleja is spend-
ing the school vacation in the States.
The boys who returned to the Zone reported that the Mississippi
River is truly muddy. A few times the boys were put on water ration
because there just weren't many places along the river to get fresh
water. Sometimes there would be stretches of 100 to 150 miles where
there was no water, except the eddying mud swirling about their
Warm welcomes were given the Explorer Scouts everywhere.
Their adviser had arranged for mail stops at Davenport and Quincy,
Ill., and Memphis through Elks lodges.
"Castaways," the party was called in a Halls, Tenn., paper when
wind and rain drove them ashore at Hales Point, interrupting their
trip from La Crosse, Wis., to New Orleans. But, amazingly, they
encountered only 2 days of rain on the 26-day trip.
The Mississippi River, still high after a record flood, caused the
Explorers a few sleepless nights because a lot of sandbars were still
under high water, preventing camping out.

Greetings from Northern California. We had a beautiful day for
the picnic on June 20th at Juniperro Serra Park in San Bruno. This
park is a well situated area for our picnics. It's in the hills but not
too far from Bayshore Freeway giving all an easy access to it.
Our shelter area is now equipped with electricity so lights are avail-
able in the dark corner under the roof and greatest of all is being
able to use our electric coffee urn, no more charcoal fire and long
wait for water to boil. About 125 members and guests were present
and it seemed as if all lingered longer than usual.

Ramirez, Menlo Park; Bun and Celeste Powell, Santa Rosa; Bill

It's a good thing the Secretary of this Society neglected to re-
serve picnic space last January, thereby losing our regular space
in Section C, else those attending on June 13 would have been out
in the rain. That oversight shifted us to another section over which
there was a roof wasn't that a lucky break. Yep, it was another
"unusual" gray, cloudy, damp June morning when we gathered for
our picnic. But nothing can stop us when the sun finally came
out around 2 p.m. or so it shone on about 130 picnickers. It was
good to see so many new faces, and those who always come out to
gatherings rain or shine. We still miss many of our favorite
old timers. Early on the morning of June 13 I had a telephone call
from Eva Hammer from Arkansas: she had hoped to be with us,
perhaps she will be in California for the October meeting. We
extended her greetings to all who attended the picnic.

to Miss Barbara Bryant, June 26th. Walter and Martha Reif com-
mute quite regularly to Oklahoma City to give an assist to son
Wally and Arda in whatever the need may be building the new
home or to baby-sit. We, in Fayetteville, are happy to have the
"Mike" Burtons (Minnie Brown) decide to make this their re-
tirement home-town. After a long stay with daughter Nancy and
family in State of Washington Mike and Minnie are waiting for
their furniture from New Orleans and enjoying daughter Judy and
grandson. They bought a lovely home around the corner from the
Reifs. Ruth Daniel spent some time with her family, Robert E.
Daniel of Austin, Texas.
Out of town visitors to the Oz'irks included Eula Jo Ewing of
Oklahoma where she is a House-Mother to a Fraternity. Jo is as
jolly as ever and we laughed heartily as we reminisced about our
working days at the Pedro Miguel Kindergarten 40 years ago. H. M.
and Irma Lockwood stopped by and I wish all C. Z. retirees could
have the abounding good health H. M. is enjoying after almost 20
years of retirement. Ralph and Marie (Synnak) Shuey were here.
Marie signed the guest book as "The Compton's little German girl"
for it was in the home of Rolla and Neoma Compton that we first
met Marie, Such a happy visit. Their son Ralph, Jr. is married and
in thel Air Force Helicopter service. Our Raymond N. Shaw was on
leave from his position as Chief, Contract Inspection Branch, Pan-
ama Canal Company to take a course in Contract Administration in
Denver. His wife, Barbara and two sons met him in Denver and
they hurried to Sunny California to escape the cold weather of the
Rockies and visit with Ray's sister, Alice Ray, and brother-in-law
Col. and Mrs. James A. Wier in the Presido of San Francisco.
From Mt. Home comes the news that Walter and Iola Wagner are
the new President and Secretary-Treasurer of the local N.A.R.C.E.
Chapter. An Organization worthy of the support of all C. Z. retirees.
The Bohans are just "keeping cool" in Jonesboro. Cards from

Mrs. Olga Evers of Neosho, Mo. informs us she is in New England
renewing acquaintances with old scenes and old friends. Olga has
sold her place in Neosho to daughter Dolly and family and now
lives in an apartment in town. European traveler, George D. Poole
keeps us posted of his enjoyment of Europe.
How comforting to know though forms may change Life is
Eternal. So it is, when we are faced with the passing of a beloved
one, family or friend, into another expression of Life. We recently
learned of the sudden passing of Irene Zimmerman of Ozone which
occurred March 19th. With Fred and Jessie Newhard we went to
Ozone to see Walter Zimmerman who told us Irene was ill but a few
minutes after bringing in the mail. For those who leave us so
quickly what a blessing. For those loved ones left to mourn -
what a shock. Walter's plans are indefinite at present, but he has
some Old Leed's Spray, original design, Steiff Rose pattern silver
and some crystal he would like to dispose of. Write for information
to Irene's cousin, Mrs. Mildred Stone, 25 Dellevan St., Jamestown,
New York.
Readers of the CANAL RECORD will greatly miss the humorous,
yet thoroughly provoking reports of Transit Chapter, TAXachusetts,
so ably written by the late L. Forrest Hallett. "Slim" as he was so
affectionately known by his many friends brought JOY to many
people in so many unusual ways. Slim's last report told of his
JOY in receiving so many cards, letters, cables, telegrams, 'phone
calls and callers honoring him and his beloved Ida on their 50th
Wedding Anniversary. Every day I am reminded of their visits
with us as I pass by the several hand-made tiles on which he hand-
painted inspiring thoughts, particularly the one on the door of the
guest room, the last thing seen by the departing guest the Mizpah
Again on May 17th we were stunned by the sudden passing of
our own member and past president, William Franklin MAltIt,.i-, of
Springdale. We had expected him home from the hospital within a
few days following our visit with him. Bill was a real Old Timer on
the,Canal. Bill played basketball in the early days and remained an
ardent sports fan all his life. Our deep sympathy to Carrie and
other survivors who include two brothers, Isaac of Media and Dalton
of Yeadon, Pa.; one sister, Mrs. Gladys Burnett of Media. To all
mourners, everywhere Mizpah.
You are reminded of and invited to our Annual Luncheon, Sunday,
October 19, 1965, 1 P.M., Crescent Hotel, Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
The trip over hill and dale to see the gorgeous colors of Nature's

Flaming Pall Revue is well worth the effort, but added to the
fellowship of friends of former Canal Zone days well, just come
and experience for yourself the JOY of a Happy Day. Y'all come
and see the film "Fifty Years of The Panama Canal."

My dear Friends,
I know this is not the way to answer all the letters and cards you
sent to Slim's family, but I cannot seem to concentrate, so please
forgive me, and when I can, I'll write to each of you, one at a
time. What does one do at a time like this without the many near
and dear friends that Forrest and I have? Forrest touched so many
lives in his enthusiasm, he seemed to gather folks along with him
whether it was the mock elections; minstrel shows, fish fries, skits
with Scud Emery, the Sail Fish Club, organizing the Chinese or
Canal Coronations, playing Santa Claus for Clubhouse and orphan
asylums, the Fourth of July celebrations, reminding his friends
of their anniversaries or wive's birthdays (he had a book which he
consulted daily and would send a reminder three days in advance);
his creative ability in making wooden butlers, pages with card trays,
hod carriers for book-cases, monograms for the convents to use in
embroidering linens, drill teams (one of which performed for Lind-
bergh on his first flight to the Isthmus, and one for the Philadelphia
Shrine Convention in 1926). His artistic ability leaves a few pen and
ink sketches, some paintings, and his hundreds of pieces of ceramics
which became his hobby after retirement, and which many of you
have. With all the things he made, he would never sell them, if
some one asked if he would sell a figurine, ash tray, plate or tile,
he would always say, "I haven't put a price on it yet." The beach
house at Gorgona, with its rows of beautiful palms and other flower-
ing trees is a growing tribute to him.
I think that his Nativity sets were the most beautiful that I have
ever seen, especially his speckled cows, he made two complete
sets, and before his cataracts caused him to stop his beloved work,
he made a few Japanese prints.
He had been ill with emphysema for many months, and only his
will to do things kept him out of the hospital until after our 50th
anniversary celebration, and then he wouldn't enter until the last
of our family left over a week later. He went into the hospital on

March 15th, and went to sleep while the doctors were working on
him on May 15th. I was to take him home on the 14th if he had no
temperature, but he did have some. On that night, two of our young
neighbors visited him and he had them make up a lobster menu
for our first cook-out after he came home. Had he stayed with us,
he would have suffered horribly, so it is only my own selfishness
that I would wish him here at home, but for him, God has given
him release and peace.
It's the little things he did, like putting out the quarter for the
Sunday paper (which I have already forgotten three times), pour-
ing the juice for breakfast, getting the coffee ready to plug in,
putting the dishes and silver out for whomever came down first in
the morning, and just being here all the time.
From the desk of Ben Armstrong comes this anonymous poem:
The leaves that once hung soft and green,
Are falling brown and gold,
The morning breeze is turning keen,
The year is growing old.
The snow will soon be falling fast,
On earth and in my hair,
The voice of winter calls at last,
Upon the frosty air.
The days of summer now grow cold,
The flowers droop and die,
The year is swiftly growing old
And so am I.
I know a land of peace and hope,
A place of summer fair,
No more in twilight need I grope,
The sun is shining there.
And all the olden songs, long sung
Shall never, never die,
And all the old again grow young,
And so shall I.

This has been an unusually lovely summer, with Mother Nature
out-doing herself this year by putting on a spectacular show of
beautiful flowers from the purple-shrouded heights of the Blue
Ridge to the cool rain-soaked slopes of the .Great Smokies. The
beauty of the Flame Azalea, Mt. Laurel and Big Rhododendron was
truly a breath taking sight. Now the blooms are bursting forth on
the Sourwood trees. Bee-keepers and honey-lovers eagerly await
this particular season because around these parts the folks think
Sourwood honey is just about the best honey abody would want!
Just as welcome as the pretty flowers, were our summer visitors.
Those attending the June picnic were the following guests. Mr.
and Mrs. Hess, Mrs. J. Ekholm (Sara Ferguson), Mrs. W. T. Carter,
Mr. Alvin Ingle, Ethel Bowen, Mrs. R. E. Goodson (Susie Tweed),
and her pretty little daughter Kathyrn. Another small fry was

April Pope, the Clarence Howell's granddaughter, also attending
were Eleanor Horne and her friend Mildred Bellows. Eleanor and
Connie Dodson had a great time talking over their long association
in the Finance Bureau. When she remarked that he looked ten
years younger now than when she had last seen him many years
ago it pleased him and I must say he has been hard to live with
ever since.
Mrs. Ula Tweed, just back from her European Tour looking her
usual happy and pert self, was at this gathering also. Before the
Meeting opened we had a nice long chat and I took notes as she
proceeded to give me a travel resume for this report, and I quote:
"1 left N. Y. in April by TWA Jet for London where I joined the
group I was to make the tour with. While in London we saw
Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and of course the
beautiful English countryside. Crossing the English Channel by
steamer we then proceeded by Motor Coach thru Flander's Field
into Brussels, Belgium, Luxembourg and Heidelberg, Germany (land
of picturesque castles) and visited the Black Forest. Next on the
agenda was crossing the Rhine River into lovely Switzerland, via
Zurich to Lucerne and the 4'Cantons (territorial divisions). Not
wanting to miss a thing, I got real brave and took a bucket lift to
thie top of a 14,000 ft. peak and had a marvelous view of the Swiss
Alps. Austria came next, where we visited Liechtenstein, Inns-
bruck, and Cortina D'ampezzo. Venice, known as the Queen of the
Adriatic, was truly named. I particularly enjoyed seeing the many
canals and other sights there. In Italy the Art Center at Florence
was most interesting as was the City of Naples. In Rome we found
so many things to see, St. Peter's Square, the Vatican, where
we had an interview with the Pope. Other points of interest were the
Forum, Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Catacombs, Pisa with it's
Leaning Tower, and the City of Genoa. From there we went to
Nice, Monte Carlo, Cannes and Lyons, with many side excursions
such as a trip to the Isle of Capri, the ruins of Pompeii, The crown-
ing event came when we entered the most beautiful City in the
world, Paris. Her gay Boulevards, flower venders, Tuileries and
Nite Clubs make it a fascinating place for a Tourist. Around the
end of May saw many of us winging our way back to N. Y. and
home. A wonderful trip for our Group and one that will be long
remembered by all of us I am sure." End of quote. I would just
like to add that Mrs. Tweed's 14,000 ft. trip to the top of a Swiss

peak could well be one of the highlights of her tour (no pun in-
A grand family reunion, the first since 1956, took place recently
in Hendersonville at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Johnston. The

that area and also in Asheville were delighted to see them again.
Mr. A. B. Cole is a busy man these days building some very at-
tractive homes here in the land of the sky. He wants to average about
two a year.
The passing of Mr. George Ward of Weaverville, N. C. on May
8th, brought considerable sadness to the members of our Society.
To Inez and her family go our deepest sympathy at this sad time
in their lives.
Betty O'Rourke is looking forward to seeing her daughter and
husband, Mr. and Mrs. J. Stalama of Providence, R. 1. Later on
Rose and Johnny Johnston and Betty are driving to Dallas, Texas
to attend the wedding of Betty's granddaughter, Judy Mathews,
which will take place on the 21st of August. After the wedding a
trip to Carrollton, Texas is planned. Sometime on or about the
24th of August Betty will leave by plane to make her future home
with her son Fred P. O'Rourke of Reno, Nev. We are sorry she
is leaving N. C. and will really miss her. "Vaya Con Dios, Betty!"

a few days. The Wendell Greenes and Ruth Sill of Hendersonville,
Ethel Bowen of Saluda, and Betty and Paul Bentz took a gay two-
car, two-day "Dogwood Tour" thru the Smokey Mts. including

little research on the above subject and found the following in The
Modern Encyclopedia and I quote, "Among the first American
Troops to engage in actual warfare in the World War, they were
distinguished throughout the entire struggle for their valor and
The Theodore Abbott Pecks (Mary Sill) and their four sons
drove down from their home in Princeton, N. J., in their Mircobus
and had ten days in June in this vacationland visiting Ruth Sill
and the Wendell Greenes.
Beautiful, fresh vanda orchids which had been flown up from the
Zone by Captain Ernest L. Cotton of Balboa Heights, made the
exciting centerpiece in the celebration of the ninety-seventh birth-
day of Mrs. Charles Cotton, on July 17. Mrs. Cotton makes her
home with Bob and Lillian (Cotton) Van Wagner. Except for her

also. Floyd was laid up for six weeks after injuring his back but
is now fully recovered.
Connie and 1 went out to see the Behlens (Olive and Sharkey)
who are now staying for an indefinite time at the recently-built
beautiful Brentwood Convalescent Home in Beaverdam Valley.
Sharkey hasn't been well lately but seems to be improving now that
he is able to get a lot of rest. Olive looks very good with all the
excellent care she has been receiving. Brentwood is surrounded by
lovely Mt. scenery and the atmosphere there is both restful and
luxurious. There are no special visiting hours which pleases the

Behlens immensely as they love company. Brentwood is reached
from Asheville by going N. on Merrimon Ave., taking a R. turn on
Beaverdam Road and continuing on this Road until the Brentwood
sign is seen, there a L. turn on up the hill and there it is!
Mr. A. W. Bethea's health continues good and he is interested

The Spillway recently carried a request for information on the
SS Roosevelt, Adm. R. S. Peary's polar exploration vessel which
ended her days in the old French Canal, Mount Hope. Some details
have come from one who logically could provide the most reliable

information: Admiral Peary's daughter, Mrs. Marie Peary Stafford.
The letter was directed to Julius Grigore, Jr., Assistant Chief,
Industrial Division, who is writing the history of the SS Roosevelt.
Mrs. Stafford enclosed a souvenir for him a small piece of the
Roosevelt's keel.
Mrs. Stafford's letter said that in 1898 a group of wealthy men
banded together and formed the Peary Arctic Club, the purpose of
which was to support financially Peary's efforts to reach the North
Pole. With funds from these men the Roosevelt was built in 1904-05
at Bucksport, Maine, from special designs drawn up by Admiral
Peary. The Roosevelt held the record of having gone farther north
under her own power than any other ship up to that time.
With the discovery of the North Pole the purpose of the Peary
Arctic Club was realized and the club was disbanded. The U. S.
Government at the time was not interested in the vessel as a national
monument, nor as a ship for the Fish Commission and the vessel
went downgrade to nautical skid row, winding up at the entrance of
the old French Canal and a page in history.

Twenty-four hour airmail distribution and collection service will
be available to users of the Balboa Post Office late this year or
early in 1966.
This will be effected by the consolidation of the Balboa Post
Office operations with the mail handling unit presently housed in
the Civil Affairs Building in Ancon.
The Balboa Mail Handling Unit, which handles all the airmail
leaving and entering the Canal Zone, operates on a 24-hour schedule.
The under-one-roof operation will be made possible by the addition
of a one-story annex to the existing Balboa Post Office building,
work that is included in a general contract calling for alterations
and additions to the Balboa Post Office.
The work should be completed within the next 8 months. The
lowest of the bids submitted by four local contractors was by Dillon
Construction Co. in the amount of $134,200.
In addition to construction of the annex for the use of the mail
handling unit, the work will involve the remodeling and air con-
ditioning of the Balboa Post Office building. The public lobby will
be glass enclosed and the service windows and other facilities re-

The Balboa post office was constructed in 1938 on a site originally
reserved for the permanent post office on the circle of public build-
ings terminating the Prado at the foot of Sosa Hill.
It was considered a handsome building at the time and was de-
scribed as a simple open pavilion of graceful arches suggestive of a
California mission. Red Spanish tiling was used for the roof and
the entire floor was paved with pink terrazzo. Bronze grilled screens
and letter drops were installed and the tiers of lock boxes, also of
bronze, were set against a background of Tennessee marble.
The original building cost $116,000 and the equipment an addition-
al $12,000.

One of the Panama Canal's old grey mules started its last journey
recently when it was loaded aboard the U. S. Navy LST Talbot
County at Gamboa by the Panama Canal Dredging Division crane
U. S. 868, one of the original Panama Canal towing locomotives
furnished by General Electric in 1914 to guide transiting ships
through the locks, is en route to Niskayana, New York, where it will
be placed on display at the American Museum of Electricity.
The trip north aboard the Talbot County is the first that old 868
has made away from the Canal Zone since arriving from the General
Electric factory at Schenectady, New York. The locomotive was put
in service at Pedro Miguel locks and worked there most of the past
50 years.
During the half century of service, No. 868 has participated in
approximately 100,000 lockages, or about one-third of the 50-year
total at Pedro Miguel, and has required only the usual maintenance,
repairs and replacement of minor parts.
The locomotive weighs approximately 43 tons, is 33 feet long,
10 ft high and travels on a five foot gauge track. Its speed was 2
miles per hour with a 25,000-pound pulling capacity.
In preparation for its new role in a museum, the old mule was
restored to first class appearance and painted standard colors. It
then was transferred to the deck of the Hercules, where it awaited
the arrival of the Talbot County.

Flags of 18 nations-including that of land-locked Switzerland--

were represented in a bumper crop of 43 oceangoing ships that made
the Canal transit May 24. It was the heaviest traffic day in some
The United States headed the list with nine vessels. Scandinavian
countries were represented by Norway with five, Denmark with two,
and Sweden and Finland with one each.
Other countries whose flag transited the Canal that day were the
Netherlands with five, Japan and Germany with three each, Liberia,
Greece, China and Panama with two each, and Italy, France, Nic-
aragua, Switzerland, Great Britain, and Honduras, all with one each.

A rainfall record was broken at Balboa Docks by one-half inch
during the downpour May 29 30. In the 24-hour period from 2:30
p.m., May 29 to the same hour May 30 a total of 8.05 inches rain fell,
smashing a record that had been standing since 1906. That former
record was 7.57 inches of rain November 16 17.
At Balboa Heights, during the heavy weekend rain, 6.20 inches
fell. a little over 2 inches less than the maximum 24-hour rainfall
on October 31 November 1963.

More than 100 teachers participated in the Math Workshop spon-
sored by the Schools Division May 1 at Balboa High School. Dr. W.
Robert Houston, Professor of Mathematics Education from Michigan
State University, conducted the workshop. Dr. Charles Latimer,
Jr., deputy superintendent, introduced the speaker.
Professor Houston said he was impressed by the professional at-
titude of the teachers and that nowhere has he encountered a
group of teachers as well prepared to teach modern mathematics.
The one-day workshop was a culmination of 10 workshops, in service
programs, and college courses that have been made available to the
elementary and secondary teachers since January 1964.
For next September the Schools Division has adopted, in the
English-language schools, a modern mathematics program in grades
1 through 8.
