those imported for the tourist trade. Biggest hikes are

critics charged that some factories

A LITTLf HISTORY
Pmcnniav rabble rousers would do well to read more and say
less. History will tell them that Old Uncle Sammy not only gave
Panama the gift of the enure country aucr paying luwmuia v
' but also furnished a man to raise Panama's. lint flag when no one

Uncle Sam gave Panama outright the credit that makes its dol

has donated innumerable pieces of equipment, roads, medicines and
education, and has paid through the nose dearly for .every solitary
thing received in return from an ungraieim peojne.
Why don't Panamanians stop beating their puuy chests for a
while? If they deiire a canal and all the trials and tribulations which
go with it, why In hell don't tney ug nt iM wnen rVul'
theirs. Or are they waiting until Uncle builds the roads, for them to
Negotiate a new treaty?. Fine and dandy let's get at it, boys,
while I recuperate from the last one. But how about letting the ed educated
ucated educated professor negotiate. I like the way he divides that three mil million
lion million bucks by two. Better yet, let's divide the expenses they re
And in closing, let me remind Ginger Know All (Mail Box Dec.
13) that the hospitality and protection of the Zone is above reproach.
Our penitentiary is full of his countrymen. Our hospitals, mental
and otherwise, are crammed to the bursting point. And the elite
of Panama grace indiscriminately the portals of our Balboa jail as
weir as the Tivoli Guest House (periodically). What greater tribute
could be paid to our efficiency? i
Now the parting thought. Don't kill the silly goose that lays the
golden eggs, or equally significant, stop biting the hand that feeds
you. Or one of these days, after Panamanians have chopped every everything
thing everything down, burned it to crisp, and eroded what's ieft to a grand
" canyon, we'll give the country back to Colombia.

"All Fnr Now's" letter (Mail Box. Dec. 20) in "answer to a tew
people" is the most sickening of all the examples of poor taste, bigot bigotry,
ry, bigotry, lack of education and lazy mental processes to be written to the
Mail Box by American citizens.
! 1 am an American citizen, Caucasian, living in Panama. I agree
nat living in the tropics has its drawbacks cockroacnes. moia ana a
monotonous climate But the thing that bothers me most is the cali
ber of the people T.y government sends to the Canal Zone in repre
sentation of the UC citizen.
I have never written this. kind of letter before, and am not very
' Adept at it. Besides, I have been made so angry by "All l or Now's"
letter that my hand is shaking.
I have only one point to make. It is that I know many fine
colored peoplr-,Mdecent hard-working, loyal and kind who I
would prefer to have as my friends Over "All For NOW's" type of

, I'have never studied llie racial situation in Manama, but
" am inclined to agree that 75 per cent of the inhabitant of Pan Pan-l
l Pan-l tmif City tare colored. Why? Because our government Imported
' their grandfathers an fathers to dig the canal, and neglected
' i to repatriate them afterwards.
. I am Inclined to disagree that 90 per cent of the crimes com-
mltted In Panama are committed by Negroes. And as for all the
prostitutes, pimps, etc. being colored don't be silly.

choked up in the clutch. If an ump calls a runner out he can,
sifter an objection by the manager or captain or victim of the
call, appeal to another umpire and then reverse his decision.
But If he sticks to hi decision, he must then call: Play Ball.

Milton's two heart overcall was
normal, and Manny sitting South
had auite oroblem. His decision
to bid three clubs was eminently j
correct. Should his partner pass,
as was likely, he would expect to
make it or should his partner bid
he would have an opportunity to

by showing his diamonds.
