LATIN AMERICAN SCHOOL TEACHERS
This Is the tragic story of a valiant group of Canal Zone
employes and worse still, a body of supposedly professional
toeoole It's the tragic story of the plight of teachers of the
canal Zone Latin American Schools. And it is my sincere hope
! that this story will come to the attention of Governor Potter.
J! Teachers of the Latin American Schools have been made to
become an unhappy group of employes, and are presently worn worn-'Ing
'Ing worn-'Ing under newly-created pressure, brought on as a result of a
"recent meeting held in the music room of the high school at
Paralso, when they felt the security of their jobs to have been
threatened in no uncertain terms by a prominent official of
the "Schools Division, who on many previous occasions and
Kvn up to recently had given the teachers definite, firm
assurances that their jobs were now secure, and that they have
"earned the right to remain in their jobs by having successfully
!! brought the Latin American Schools through the crisis of the
Spanish conversion program.
i. Only recently when the school system was faced with an
evaluation program, this same official personally went, as a
"forerunner to the evaluation committee, from school to school
I! giving teachers "pep talks" and expressing his unshaken con confidence
fidence confidence in them. .,
These were his very words: "You are all good teachers
and if yoU weren't, you wouldn't be holding your jobs now. You
"have nothing to fear from the evaluation program. Just go
"head and do your jobs, and let me do the worrying. And I
know that you are good teachers, so I'm not Worried.'
But, on the afternoon of Dec. 3 when the Pacific side
teachers assembled in the music room of the Paralso High
;Schcol to hear an announcement by mis same official, it was
;ia shocked group of teachers who listened in amazed disbelief
as the gentleman who had taken so many pains to build up in
"the teachers a feeling of confidence and of job security now
shattered their morale with the impact of his words, and set
"teachers' brains reeling In a thousand directions, in a dazed
"search for something they could have faith in, some aspiration
they could really acquire, a different type of work they could
"really enjoy doing, and feel secure In.
'., This points to poor administrative technique in dealing with
people and especially a group of thinking people. Or could
lit be that the official in question believes that teachers are so
stupid, and that he can forever continue to push them around
'like a bunch of dumb driven cattle?
I happen to know that most of the teachers are fed up
with the treatment of the Schools Division, and It really is
'.about time that they were. More than almost any other group

the general public will ever know, and I suggest that the Latin

WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST: When the Pittsburgh Panth Panthers
ers Panthers exploded against unbeaten Miami Saturday repercussions were
felt by the Cotton Bowl, the national rankings and the all pickers.
Texas Christian, host team, had already been shut out by Miami,
and was, in tha Bowl only because, Texas A&M-ls ethically uoaccent-
bla by NCAA standards. An earlier defeat by Pittsburgh impugn impugned,
ed, impugned, the credentials of Syracuse, the guest team, and obviously the
Panthers' smash win over, hitherto unbeaten Miami could add no nothing
thing nothing to the Orangemen's prestige. Miami was ranked as the sixth
best, team in the nation by coaches and writers, Pitt 12th in one poll
no higher than 13th in another. Thus the Panthers either have made
Eastern football-look very good, or the rankings vary bad.
The AP named Miami's Don Bosseler fullback on its All-America
team and then apologized for his inconspicuous performance:
"Pitt had set its defense to point for Bosseler.so Coach Gustafson used
him sparingly." Why would a coach in a losing enterprise refuse
to make the most of his best man? The Panthers have a way of
embarrassing headline heroes. They held Syracuse's vaunted Jim Jimmy
my Jimmy Brown to four yards a carry in a game which decided the East Eastern
ern Eastern championship in our book. The answer is simple ... Pitt had
the best line in the East, excepting, of course, Bob and Bay, who,
incidentally, were plain wonderful at our high school dinner.
PALMS AND PUGS: Floyd Patterson's first defense of his new newly
ly newly won heavyweight title may be in Miami come February. Prob
able foe: Willie Fastrano. mcs Jim worns ana Pattersons man manager
ager manager huddle on the matter today. Norris wants to hold Hurricane
Jackson for outdoors in June. Boxing's boss isn't optimistic that
Marciano will fight again ... "I was asked if I would guarantee him
4400,000 to meet Patterson," Norris revealed. "Certainly I would,
but Rocky knows how to figure. His end from such a fight would
greatly exceed $400,000, and he needs no one to spell that out for
him. Norris estimates a ratterson-Marciano fight, including re returns

Fans are cautioned not to
be misled by the fact that
nothing more than second

is at stake tonight. Normally
this would be a rather slim

This will be 'the last time this

Each team has won from the

will decide which of the hign

Balboa will rate a slight edge
to take this one, but a Cristobal
