Alma Ialete


Oh! Alma Mater, who would dare
Believe I'd leave thy loving care
Some day? Or tentacles of time
Would snatch me from thy world
aumblime?
Thy world which is my paradise;
Where- oft unselfish sacrifice
Of thy diciples, true and kind,
Deth ope mine eyes so blind.
Ohl.Why couldn't I remain with
thee
Just clinging indefinitely,
And every day procrastinate
My share of wrath from fate?


How shall it hurt when I recall
Thy busy,buzzing study hall;
And in thy rooms where know-
ledge flows
To equal every tree that grows.
Uponmypassagethrough thy walls
I often thought, "So what's it all?"
" 'Tis years bef ore I'll graduate!'
I underestimated fate!
For as you-see, the time is nigh
That I must leave. I shall not cry,
For thou hast taught me that I can
Stand up and face the world a
MAN.

THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Association, which is the nucleus of all extra curricular activities at
Rainbow High, was organized in August, 1949. From then until September, 1954, it was
guided by Mrs. Lucille Williams. After Mrs. Williams left for the United States, Mr.
Terry Butler assumed the responsibility of continuing the work of the organization.
For the first time since its inception, the students of the junior high school were
admitted as members of the S. A. with Mr. DuBois Andrews as co-sponsor.
The governing board of the S. A. included Rudolph Ranger, president; William
Frederick. vice-president; Catherine Jones, secretary; 'Patrick Quinlan, assistant secretary;
and Jerry Raymond, treasurer-


BIOLOGY CLUB
Our Biology Club which has been functioning since August, 1950, attracts many
of the students at Rainbow High. For those persons interested in science, the club offers
the opportunity to increase their knowledge of scientific facts and to exercise their skill
in dealing with scientific problems.
The sponsor is Mr. Alfonso Greaves, who guides the group with the help of Herbert
Brathwaite, president; Albert Roach, vice-president; June King, secretary; Ashton Wilson,
treasurer; Guy Scarlett, reporter; and Lucille Alphonse, librarian.






























THE DRAMATIC CLUB
In 1952 a Dramatic Club was initiated for the first time in the Rainbow City
School. Under the guidance of the sponsor, Mr. Horace Parker, the club has
p)resented four short plays-SIXTEEN, THE THIRD PLATE, MAN TRAP
for MOTHER, and THE RIGHT ANSWER. All of them were enthusiastical-
ly received by the audience.
In addition, the club has promoted other activities such as elocution and
story-writing contests, a radio play, and excursions.
Mr. Parker is assisted by Herbert Graham, president; Herbert Brathwaite,
vice-president; Rudolph Ranger, secretary; Annetta Josephs, assistant secre-
tary; and Norma Spence, treasurer.





MUSIC DEPARTMENT
The High School Chorus and the High School Band contribute a great deal to
the school spirit at Rainbow High.
SMr. Prescott, the director of both departments, works tirelessly to have them
produce the best. There are eighteen members in the band and seventy-two in the
chorus.
On December 18, 1954, both groups presented a grand Christmas Pageant which
evoked many favorable comments.

recreation which it provides for our students cannot be underestimated.

CLUB CERVANTES


This club was organized primarily tu encourage our students to speak the Spanish lan-
guage with greater facility.
Every year the members of Club Cervantes present colorful programs during the patriot-
ic holidays. The club also sponsors excursions to interior towns and places of interest in Pa-
nama City to acqutaint the students with the culture of their country.
The patriotic program which was held last November 2 in observance of the fifty-first
anniversary of Panama's independence drew resounding applause from both junior and se-
nior high assemblies.
Club Cervantes is now directed by Mrs. Maria A. Reid who replaced Mrs. Lucille Wil-
liams on September 1, 1954.
The officers for this year were Herbert Brathwaite, president; Carlos Malcolm. vice-pre-
sident; Annetta Josephs, secretary; Herbert Graham, corresponding secretary; and Janet
McLean, treasurer.

HlH^B^HTOGRAPHY CLUB H llfl

Since its organization in 1948 the Photography Club of Rainbow High has
produced many amateur photographers who have continued to pursue their
hobby even after graduation.
Each year the members of the club contribute muchof the photographic work
which appears in the high school yearbook. Some of the work in our 1955 Apex
Was done by Rudolph Ranger.
The officers for the 1954- 1955 school year were Basil Thomas, president;
Lloyd Williams, secretary; Reuben Ellis, assistant secretary; and Rudolph
Ranger, technical adviser.

THE PARROT


The September, 1954, issue of our organ -THE PARROT marked an extraordinary turn in
the progress of our paper. For the first time since its advent in 1949, it appeared as a printed
paper instead of the usual mimeographed edition. Muoh of the credit for the new look of our
PARROT is due Mr. Arcelio Hudson, our printing instructor.
The editor is Carlos Malcolm, who tries to get out our paper on time with the help of the re-
porting staff Euclid Jordan, Wilma Blackmail, Sylvia Evering, Carol Herbert, Sylvia Manuel,
GeorgeRedman, Linda Newland, Ashton Wilson, and June King.
In view of the number of ads which our paper now carries, Robert Allen was appointed busi-
ness manager.
Printing is done by students George Hall, Wilton Rennie, Cecil Quinlan, Jos6 Bravo, Henry
Wedderb urn, Earl Whittaker, Alphonso, C. Barnett.Felix Modestin, Selwyn Brown, Hilton
Brathwaite, Reuben N. Ellis, Jr., and MyrnaM. Davis.

Box 1955
Colon, Republic of Panama
April 15, 1970


Miss Sylvia McDonald
1640 Forest Avenue
Detroit, Michigan

Dear Miss McDonald:

Through one of our prominent newspapers El Panamefo, of which Jerry
Raymond is editor, we read that your sixth book in a series of Spanish
grammar has been highly acclaimed. We wish to extend our sinceyest con-
gratulations to you, one of our former teachers.

Professor Herbert Graham, language professor at the National Univer-
sity has recommended your texts to his students. Working at the same
university are Yvonne Spence, Catherine Jones, and Cecil Quinlan in the
language and science departments.

Speaking of the university, there is a new one under construction
close to the Panama Highway. This beautiful building is the inspiration
of the well-known architect Edward McDonald. %e got a glimpse of it while
returning from a major league basketball game in Panama City where we saw
Victor Caffate, Carlos Burke, McVinn Gibbs,and Edward Manning in action
lhich reminds us, George Sewell is on the Panamanian Olympic Basketball
Team now in Switzerland and Ailbert Barton and Julian Layne on the soccer
team.

After leaving the site of the university, we stopped at a new town
called Monte Real to have a cup of coffee and a sandwich at Daisy Millerxs
Cafeteria. Before leaving the cafeteria that evening we learned from
Daisy that Gloria Holder, Noel Baptiste, Ernesto :'ontez and Cynthia Innis
(now married to Nicholas Cameron) are residing in their own homes in the
new townsite. Cynthia's brother, Joseph Innis, is now employed as a cabi-
net maker at Charles Blackman's Furniture Store, 7-dth Oliver Clarke,
furniture designer, and Claudette Perch, secretary.

As night descended, we began to drive rapidly towards Colon. After
fifteen minutes we noticed that a motorcycle was trailing us, Surely we
had unknowingly violated some traffic regulation. The tension was cased
only when Sergeant Earl Bennet appeared in police uniform. Anyhow, he
told us that our tail li'rht was out and at the same time took the oppor-
tunity to invite us to a birthday party he was holding for his wife,
Sylvia Gyles, that very evening. The invitation was accepted.

About ton miles from Colon we stopped for gas at Becky's Service
Station and were attended by the proprietor Emanuol Landers. We were
discussing old times when the conversation was cut short by the tooting
of a horn. It was a cab from Lennon Ashley's Taxi Company.








We entered Colon at about fifteen minutes of seven. The town was
gayly decorated with many bright-colored lights, the sign of the CRBN
Television Studio being one of the most conspicuous. ie assume yo:. have
heard of this television studio owned by Clement COward and Wilton FTe:--i,.
This month the studio will be presenting a new one-hour show, a I '.3 o2
dramatic plays written by Lorna Williams, now a successful playwrirt
This show will run for approximately sixteen weeks. Some of the uR&.b'rT
of the cast are Sylvia Johnson, Bernice Burnham, Lorraine Gittens ar-
Arthur 7Tade, The dramatic director of these plays will be Cuthber': "I3.!T.
Jones and the musical director, Carlos %alcolm, also director of, tLe
Orquesta Filarmonico de Panama.

Oh, yes, wie were on our way to our respective homes to get prepared
for Sylvia's party. As we were nearing Eleventh Street, we heard a
familiar whistle. As we expected, it was Lloyd Ashbyb Lloyd is foreman
at Arthur Dawkin's mechanic shop. He told us to tune in on the radio to
listen to the fi-ht between Ralph "The Terrible" Roper and Argentina's
middleweight champion. When we tuned in iri hoard, "...6s..7...8....9
...,you're out." Ralph had won. The radio station switched to its regu-
lar schedule. Disk jockey Earl Russell was now on the air with his pro-
gram.

While a new recording of Selwyn Brown and his orchestra was playing
(Selwyn's brother,Lansen Brown,is a captain in the U.S. Air Force), we
saw Jean Welch, Alicia Forde, and Nelita Bent returning from their woik
as models at the Crossdale Fashion Store where Henry Garnmes is business
manager, and Oswald -alker, Marion Duncan, and vwendolyn Forde, dress
designers.

We finally separated to get ready for the party.

At about quarter of ten the party was prc:ressing nicely. It was
about this very same time that Charlcs `ihite, Brisefio Manuel and Oscar
Garrison (coach of a local baseball team) entered. "Hollo folks,s
they greeted. Charles, whose hobby is collecting records, announced tbat
he had brought some of Alethia Dudley's latest hits,. Reuben Ellis was
particularly pleased to hear this as he was her agent, anc he requested
that they be played immediiet.-ly. After those records, we found Selwyn
Lawrence and Ruth Redman dancing to the beat of a latin number. They are
now a successful team at Alphonsc. Barnett's Club Nocturne. Earl "Ihittakw
and I-uriel Tugwoll, band leader and hostess at the club, were talking to
Edwin Kelly, reporter of The Ton,-ue.
"Say' They are wonderful," was Earl's comment.
"No wonder the show is so lucrative," came from Yuriel's pleasant voice.
"It must be," said Edwin, "especially since I gave the show a write-up
in my column."
"Of course, much of the credit goes to Mfalthos Dutton who manages the
show," came from blues singer Alice Thompsnn.

Over in one corner of the hall, Ramon Alston was attentively M3ftes-
ing to a major league baseball game between the New York Giants and the








Philadelphia Phillies. He played major league ball for five years and
now has settled dcmn as a baseball sccut for the Now York Giants. Stocky
Myrna Davis, now taking post graduate work, went over to ask him to join
the party.

We were conversing with Icilda ;iilliams, choir leader at the Adveto-
ist Church, when Sylvia Gyles, the hostess, interrupted with, "Having a
fine evening?"
"Couldn't be finer," replied Icilda.
"Rudy, how is your photo studio coming along, and how are the girls?"
"Fine, fine, business is good and the girls are doing swell. Teotista
Perea is the best secretary I ever had and Janet Thomas is doing excel-
lent work as my assistant."
"And you, Berty, I understand Sylvia l.anuel is working as head nurse at
your clinic,"
"A doctor couldn't ask for a more efficient head nurse than Sylvia."
"Is Robert Allen still doing business with you?"
"Yes, I still send my patients to him to have prescriptions filled. go
certainly is an excellent pharmacist."
"Well, it surely is good to know that you two and many of my friends
here tonight are doing well."

4s it was getting late, several guests began to say good-night.
Gloria 1'ayers and Ethlyn Haynes, both housewives, were bidding their
hosts goodbye when Gloria 'ruir, home economics teacher, gestured to them
to wait for her. In practically no time, everyone had departed.

Well, Miss IfcDonalcl, since this letter is getting quite lengthy, and
we have told you so much, we are bidding .adieu for now. But before we do
so, let us remind you that we consider you one of our most beloved
teachers. Good Luck!
Respectfully yours,


EMK Iphr Ranger

We wish to extend our sincEl'rest c ongratulations to you, of our former teachers. Professor Herbert Graham, language professor at the National University has recommended your texts to his students. Working at the same university are Yvonne Spence ; Catherine Jones, and Cecil Quinlan in the language and science departments. Speaking of thG university, there is a nevI one under construction close to the Panama Highway. This beautiful building is the inspiration of the well-known architect Edward 'Ie got a glimpse of it while returning from a major lea?ue basketball game in Panama City 'mere we saw Victor Canate, Carlos Burke, McVinn Gibb s and Edward Hanning in action Yibich reminds us, George Sewell is on the Panamanian Olympic Basketball Team now in SwitzGrland and Albert Barton and Julian Layne on the soccer team. Jlfter leaVing the site o f the university, w e stopped at a new tovm called M antei Real to hav e a cup o f coffGe and a sandwich at Daisy Millers Cafeteria. Before leaving tr.e cafeteria that evening we learned from Daisy that Gloria !folder, Noe l Baptiste, Ernesto }!ontez and Cynthla Innis (now married to Nicholas Cameron) are residing in their own homes in the new to'lmsite. Cynthia's brother, Joseph InniS, is now employed as a cabinet maker a t Charle s Blackman'S Furniture Store, "lith Olive r Clarke, furniture design er, and Claudette Perch secretar,r. As night desce nded, we began to drive rapidly towards Colon. After fifteen minutes w e noticed that a motorcycle was trailing us. Surely we had unknowin gly violated some traffic regulation The tension was eased only when Sergeant Earl Bennet appea r e d in police uniform. j,nyhow, he t old us tba t ou r tail was ou t and a t the same ti'lle took the opportunity to invite us to a birthday party h e was h olding for his wife, Sylvia Gyl es, that v ery evening.
