'gun-ho' spirit, and ,can do' spirit the same thing, you know,
that the Governor always talks about; he doesn't like a nega-
tive a negative attitude.
"I had occasion the other day to make a telephone call
which went through two or three people before the call was final,
ly delivered and in transmission it apparently got somewhat garr
bled, because the recipient understood my request to say 'have
the Mindi at that small 12 by 6 foot dock in the Mandinga River
at about. 9. o'clock the next morning:'
"And, as I said, with that 'can. do' spirit, I understand from
people who were there when he got the phone call, he said,
'Well, if that's what the Colonel wants; I will do it, but I don't
think it will fit.'

Ken Fhillips Tops

In 'Junior Judo'

Robert Starr, Ken Phillips and Bill Denning

The first judo sports contest
by the junior :members of the
Balboa .USO-Y,MVCA was held
last Saturday, with an unexpect-
edly large public turnout. The
- contest, the first of its kind
sponsored by 'the YMCA for
young people, was under the
experienced guidance of Ser-
geant Robert A. Engelke, Black
Belt holder, and ably assisted
by Bruce Perry of. the Canal
Zone Postal Service, a Brown
Belt holder, and Bill O'Sullivan
the Canal's official translator
and a talented Brown Belt
The competition was for de-
termining who among the
younger group would be cham-
pion in the 140, 160 and 180
pound divisions. The overall
champion turned o ut to be
young Kenneth Phillips, 180
In the order of their weights,
Bill Deming was champion -in
'the 140-ound -class and :Robert
Starr in the 160-pound class.
Deming, although a newcomer,
has quickly picked up judo
knowledge, as his good work
Saturday showed. Phillips is
also a newcomer and a strong
player. Starr has been with
.the group longer and his ex-
perience showed Saturday.
Credit for the excellence of
the performance was largely due

the fine.sportsmanship and spir-
'ited action shown by the many
,,other youngsters who perform-
ed in the contest: Runners-up
and worthy of mention were
.Bruce Douglas, Leo Austin and
Bob Stanley. Bruce and Bob
were pretty even in their hard-
'fought matches. But the un-
,expected came about in -the
finals, with -the -outcome un-
certain until almost the .end.
The girls' group 'of junior
members put on an exhibition
of the different judo throws that
should discourage any would-
be mashers.
During /intermission, while
finalists were being allowed a
few extra breaths prior to the
last round, two talented young-
sters from Panama, Jorge To-
rres and Alfonso VAsquez, were
tested for belt.t promotions.
Since these :boys already held
belt ranks higher than the con-
testants, the task assigned them
for their promotion was all the
Fourteen-year old Jorge, a
rather light youth, was given
a -time 'limit of 5 minutes in
which to throw five sturdy
junior opponents. He conduct-
ed himself splendidly. So did
his fellow belt. holder Alfonso.
'Both boys were roundly ap-
-plauded 'for their skill and 'pol-
ished judo techniques.

The activities of skin divers
in the Canal Zone were curtail-
ed more than a year ago by
an order issued 'by the Sec-
retary of the Army which -ruled
out certain areas ifor hkin

ers from diving at night. They
also were ordered ato display a

sion, at 9 a.m., and the flower
procession, at 3:00 p.m.
The .program also includes
religious services, fireworks,
cock fights, speed boat races,
basketball and baseball games,
and dancing.
The maritime procession of
the Patron Saint of Taboga 'is
headed by the launch carrying
the sacred image, the priest
and local authorities. 'Follow-
ing immediately behind are the
singers, the orchestra and the
general public.
Fishing boats which ordinari-
ly fish in nearby waters also
join the procession, which goes

In view of the great number

sidents attending the festivities
each year, the Panama Govern-
ment Tourist Bureau -will again
establish a continuous launch
service between Panama City
and Tabogi.

on Taboga also offer native and
foreign tourists the opportunity
of visiting various sites of in-
terest on the island, such as
the Mother's Obelisk; the Mu.
nicipal Park, with its bust ol

Alvarez; the Mount of the Cross
'of Sinai, and the Morro, with
its English Cemetery, where

NATHAN FLECKNER, multilingual Ad-
"ministrative Assistant in the Employee Ser-
vices Branch of the Personnel Bureau, knew
only 14 words of Spanish in 1939 when he
was named cashier in the Panama Canal
Water Office in Panama City.
At that time the office was on the first
floor of the Panama Railroad Station, and
,-the office handled the accounts for water
furnished Panama, as well as for railroad
lands. Of. necessity, he learned Spanish and
learned fast, for -he found himself faced with
handling about 3,100 accounts in Spanish. At
times, too, he had to represent his office
before the Alcalde in Panama City and a
knowledge of the Spanish language was a
But languages come easy to Mr. Fleckner,
who spoke four or five, including Maygar-
Hungarian, as a boy, and he had little dif-
ficulty with Spanish.
Born in New York City, he came to
the Isthmus in December 1932 with the Ar-
my. He was with the 11th Engineers, and
then with the Assistant Chief of Staff G-2
until April 16, -1937, when he received an.
honorable discharge and came to work for
the Panama Canal. His first job was as
file clerk ih the former Record Bureau, Ad-
ministration Bqilding.

In July 1939 he was named assistant cash-.
ier in the Panama Canal Water Office in
Panama City. He was transferred to Colon
to take charge of the Panama Canal's Colon
water office in January 1941 and in May
1941 was brought back' to the Pacific side

When a management contract went into
effect between the 'Panama Canal and the
Republic of Panama in 1946, he supervised
the hiring and training of employees who,
were to have charge of the water/ office.

If the plane on, which he was a purser hadn't
crashed, MAXWELL T. SMITH might still be
airborne instead of chairborne at the Panama
Canal Personnel Office.
Mr. Smith, Placement and Employee-Manage-
mhent Relations Specialist in Person'nel, was a
purser for Pahagra when he 'was seriously in.
jured in a' plane crash- in June 1934. One of
the four .persons, who survived out of the 10
who had been on the plane, he was hospitalized

On June 30, 1953 he transferred to the Plant
Inventory and Appraisal Staff of the Ac-
counting Division. He transferred to his pre-
sent position ifi September 1962.
He is married and owns his own home in.
Panama City. In addition to his wife, his
family includes a daughter, son-in-law and
granddaughter, who was 11 months old on
May 22.
He describes himself as an "S 0 G" Sil-
ly -Old Grandfather," for he's always car-
rying with him and .showing off his grand-
daughter's picture.
Mr. Fleckner's hobby is .photography, and
he does his own processing. Portrait work
is his specialty, but is done for his own

for a 'year in Buenos Aires and then was brought
to Gorgas Hospital., Here he had the distinct
tion of being the first person in Gorgas Hos
pital upon whoibta sliding bone graft was per
After 'he recovered, Mr. Smith returned -to
Chile, where he was married, and then came
back to Panama, to work in the airline's office
In February 1938 he joined the Standard Oi
firm in Cristobal as assistant steamship agent
In July 1939 he joined the Panama Canal ani
was assigned to the. Camp Bierd office of the
Personnel Bureau. He has been with Person
nel ever since.
Outside working hours, Mr. Smith does quit
a bit of gardening at his Los Rios home.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith sing in the choir at Bal
boa Union Church. He is a chaplain of th
Masonic Lodge and a Past Patron of the Orde.

El Gobernador Fleming, quien propugna el uSo de esos cin-
turones, no s6lo los tiene instalados en .su cargo official, sino en el

como protecci6n sino que acrecenta la comodidad en el viaje es-
pecialmente en jiros s6bitos, curvas y vueltas.

haci6ndolo desde su in.stalaci6n,

La Asociaci6n de Fabrican-
tes de Carros dice que 14 Esta-
