What does a Panama Canal towing locomotive operator do
when he's not working with a towing locomotive putting ships
through the Canal? Well, Jack Simon, for one, paints. Land-
scapes, seascapes,, portraits, and nary a towing locomotive
among them.
His interest in art is nothing new. He's been drawing and
painting ,for a good many years and an interesting cross-sec-
tion of his work is on display currently in the Art Gallery at
the Balboa Jewish Welfare Board Armed Service Center.
A native of Utah, Simon studied at Los Angeles City
College and Foster Williams Commercial Art Studies in Los
Angeles. He was working for a Los Angeles automobile firm
when he took a two weeks' vacation to Mexico City, fell in love
with Mexico, and stayed 9 months. After Mexico, Central Amer.
ica beckoned and in Costa Rica*he met a Panama Canal Marine
Bureau employee who helped him get a position as a Locks
signalman. He later transferred to the Police Division and was
with the U. S. Navy in the Canal Zone before transferring back
to the Panama Canal organization, with which he has worked
since 1955.
Many of his portraits show the influence of Mexico and
Latin America. His workshop is in the garage at his home in
Balboa, where the walls are hung with completed paintings.
He works from memory, with photographs, and sometimes has
a member of the family as a sitter.
He is married, to a girl from Penonome, and they have
two sons, Jack, Jr., and Michael J.

His father is supervisory auditor

A column by Jon D. Long-

"Young Pair ter Shows Work,"
covers the current showing by
Al Sprague. "Sprague," says the
critic, "has a wonderful eye for
the character of objects. Not de-

description of costumes, but in

over their fishing poles, light
sparkling on rippling water, the-
twisted shapes of old roots and

QUESTION: When there Is a
month with three pay periods,
how will the tax be withheld?
We are supposed to be paying
taxes on a monthly basis.
ANSWER: Taxes withheld are
computed on a bi-weekly basis
converted from the Panamanian
monthly tax tables. Taxes are as-
sessed on an annual basis.
QUESTION: Shouldn't the U. S.
Government consult its Panama-
nian employees on the disad-
vantages to the employees before
withholding our tax?
ANSWER: The entire question
concerning withholding taxes is
an Executive Agreement between
the respective countries.

QUESTIONt: Since the U. S.
Government is withholding the
tax, isn't it its duty to receive the
Information concerning exemp-
tions from its employees and then
forward such information as they
forward the taxes withheld?
ANSWER: Exemptions are con-"
cern between the employee and
his government. Proof or the
quantity for validity of exemp-
tions must be given to the em-
ployee's government for judg-
.ment, as explained in the Spill-
way of September 13.

On the Other Hand by Rachel
Adams is the memoir of the wife
of the famous former Special As-
sistant to the President Sher-
man Adams. This is an engaging
personal account of Mrs. Adams'
girlhood in New Hampshire, of
her courtship, her life as a wife,
mother, Governor's lady, and of
course, of her life in Washington.
The story is enriched by her
sense of humor, her warmth and
her tough Yankee approach to
the complicated happenings of
her later years.
The River and the Wilderness

QUESTION: Does the record of
income taxes withheld by the Can-
al constitute an automatic Paz y
Salvo; or do those who can prov-
ide such withholding records still
have to get their Paz y Salvo In
ANSWER: The record of taxes
withheld from all employees is
shown on the check stub each bi-
weekly pay period and is ac-
cumulated on a year-to-date basis
i addition to the bi-weekly
amount. It was agreed that per-
sons would be considered cur-
rent in their current taxes while
in the employ of the agencies on
the Canal Zone. However, the Paz
y Salvo question concerns more
than just current taxes and, is
strickly a matter between' the
employee and his government.
QUESTION: Why should we
have to spend two dollars for a
"papel sellado" to gain exemp-
tions, when the exemptions do
not generally amount to even half
the amount of the cost of the

ANSWER: This question and
others about the use to which
the tax money will be put are
not part of the processes of with-
holding of taxes and are matters

not heard about the Jamboree,
here is what it is like. Each team
plays one quarter against- each

Mr. Peterson's father,' Walter D. Peterson,
originally of Jamestown, N. Y. was in the Spanish-
American War campaign with Teddy Roosevelt and
through the latter became interested in the Pan-

all the Peterson children were born here with the
exception of Lloyd, who was born in Ronne, Den-
mark, where his mother had gone to visit her
family, and one sister, Mildred, who was born in
'Jamestown, N. Y. Lloyd was 2 years old when he
and his mother came to the Isthmus.
He grew up -on the Atlantic Side and one of
his fond memories is of souvenirs the children made
to sell the tourists. In the then water-free Loclys
they found rocks of various colors. The varicolored
rocks were pounded into powder which was poured
into tubes, tied with ribbon, and then a tourist
customer sought! Mr. Peterson recalled his thrill
of surprise at seeing one of these powdered rock

Los planes futures del retador numero Uno
al cetro mundial de los peso pluma estan ac-
tualmente sujetos a contingencies imprecisas;
mientras no se ha desertado por enter la po-
sobilidad de un encuentro en que estuviese en
juego el campeonato que ahora ostenta el- cu-
bano fltiminio "Sugar" Ramos, el prestigioso
pu'gilista colonense podria decidirse por un viaje
al Oriented donde se enfrentaria a dos renom-
brados plumas japoneses, en preferencia a un
possible bout en Paris contra el nigeriano Rafiu
King. Esta idtima oferta no parece tentadora
ya que la bolsa result muy exigua para el al-
tamente cotizado pfigil panamefio; tampoco se
contemplan otras ofertas que no vinieren res-
paldadas por una garantia seria, -s6ida y esti-
