You see all three guys happen to be. operators of the buses that
haul Sam's voung citizens t0 school from the Army, Air Force and
Navy baVg in the Canal Zone. Thev had gotten their notifications
as to their standines in this equal pay hoax the day before and how
any of then- managed to finish the day's work safely after seeing
the contents of the letters is plainly miraculous.
Now, would anvone think that all these men who operate these
buses (the non-US group) make and will ever be able to make is no
more thar 86 cents per hour, the same as a man driving a four-ton
dump truck? How on earth is it nossible to classify a man who has
for a minimum of hours and an average of 40 miles per day the lives
of 40 children in his hands with another hauling four or five yards of
rock or dirt? These children are the dependents of some of the top
brass on the CZ. others are dependents of lesser servicemen but
regardless of who they are now they could very well be the future
representatives of Sam. Yet in the job description set no for these
bus operators a section reads as follows: "No responsibility is vested
in this job for the discipline and control of the children.
Who is responsible for seeing that each child has a seat or that
the behavior on board the bus is of such as not to distract for even
the smallest fraction of a minute the driver' a ntion to the road
ahead once th bus is in motion? ...
My friends took me back to the year 1956 in showing me the
whole plan as it was set up. The treaty was signed in 1955, and up
until then these drivers had carried the same job title as the U.S.
bus drivers (automotive equipment operator.)
The following vear Sam started with his conniving against the
non-citizens retracting their title and changing it to Bus Driver. The
US drivers retained their title as automotive, equipment operators.
Know why? So that the two groups then could not be compared later
on.for similarity in watjes since they both carried different job titles.
At this time the pay for non-citizens was from 80 cents an hour to
92 cents an hour, the U.S. group around $3.01. Next on July 13, 1958.
the job was reclassified as a grade 9, one grade less than formerly
and six cents less, or 86 cents an hour. Now in the letters they re received
ceived received last week notifying them of their "equal pay status" they
learned that they, are considered still two cents overpaid, since any
man now entering this pay level will only be paid 84 cents in hour
as tops. The title has also been changed from Bus Driver, LM-5703-09(4),
86 cents an hour"tn Track Driver (Heavy), M-5703-7, 71 cents
to 84 cents an hour. Through the grandfather rights, those already
at 86 cents will retain same. I guess until the analyst comes around
again and says it should be 84 cents.
What kind of efficiency can Sam expect later on from the non non-citizen
citizen non-citizen group of employes when he resorts to such conniving in or order
der order to keep lrom giving them a few cents more?
Panama is to blame to an extent too for the resulting situation.

Some of them tell us that our own government (Panama) asked
for it, but Panama only asked for this by placing too much trust in
Sam, leaving the whole equality plan up to him, so he conveniently
adjusted it to suit himself.
Sam continues to pour millions of dollars into the Far East and
other places more economically established than Panama, yet more

FT. GULICK DISPENSARY
I would like to add one more word of support for the Ft, Gulick
Dispensary. This is the first time in over eight years of Army life
that my husband has been stationed in a location where it is possi possible
ble possible and practical to avail ourselves of the medical facilities offered
by the Army. So I do not compare the services offered at Ft. Gu
lick with those of any other Army dispensary, but rather with those
available to civilians who have complete freedom of choice in their
selection of a doctor.
We have in the past had good general practicioners, pediatri pediatricians
cians pediatricians any gynecologists (at from $4 to $8 an office call). These were
men in whom I had great confidence and from whom we received
good medical care but not once in those eight years did I have
a pediatrician call me at my home after office hours to inquire about
a sick baby he had seen that morning. Both Dr. Canabel and Dr.
Izquierdo did this more than once when my infant son was seriously

for squandering coin. It was lat

DeMille, incidentally, had the
distinction of emerging victorious
from skirmishes with reviewers
Although his films were frequent

they were usually financial won

days of cinema-making, review
ers accused him of stressing sen sensationalism

by producing a pair of films at

them within a month. Both were

exemplified by the following.

on negotiations for a story: "It

memorable films, "Doorway to

one occasion DeMille purchased

DeMille smiled: "They won't

Another throne-sitter who has

Not many people are aware of
the efforts and the immense de

researchers to the far corners of

were used. Expensive sets were
built some towered as high as
100 feet. Of course, the writing of
the script, -the signing of the
stars, the rehearsals these were
all part of the massive plan. .
DeMille was in command of the

a few hours of entertainment.

defending champs in front.
Harry Dockery, who tamed the
Tigers with- a 7-hit performance
on January 18th, was greeted like
a long lost cousin. Dockery lasted
only three innings, giving up 7
hits and all ten runs to even his

Haas finished the game for Po
wells and completely halted the
Tiger assault, limiting the winners
for only hits and no runs in the
last four innings.
The Powells fielders contributed
generously to the Cristobal win
with a record 10 errors, three by
the usually dependable Louis De De-deaux
deaux De-deaux who was as eratic as the
game. Dedeaux turned in two of

and steamed around the Panama

rounds of 68-66-71-66-271 to tie the
course record set In 1954 by Sam

a scale model of a chapel and detached Sunday school and
other auxiliary rooms. It is proposed for St. Alban's Episcopal
Church, Worland, Wyo., by the Architects' Guild of Casper,

walls designed to illuminate the surrounding
landscape with eye-catching light patterns from their hundreds
of small windows pointing in all directions. This effect was
created in the photo by a small flashlight bulb located inside
the model chapel. The heavy black, curved lines are the edges
