Classes Offered



In English Study




At Night School


The Panama Canal organiza-
tion will start a scholarship
program next month to help its
non-United States citizen em-
ployees learn English.
The program will be perma-
nent, and when it is in full
swing as many as -150 emplo-
yees will be going to night
school, at Panama Canal ex-
pense, to improve their com-
mand of the English language.
They will be attending classes
at the Panamanian-North Amer-
ican Association in Panama
City and at the Instituto Cul-
tural Panamefio-Norteamerica-
no in Colon, having been slot-
ed into the regular courses ac-
cording to their abilities in
English at the start.
The idea is to help the
employees improve their ef-
ficiency in their present
jobs. In addition, it is ex-
pected that better ability in
English will contribute to-
ward preparing, many of
them for possible future
promotions.
Announcements in both -En-
glish and Spanish appearing
this week on all Panama Carial
bulletin boards invite all inte-
rested non-U.S. citizen emplo-
yees who are willing to take
the night classes and study
faithfully to ask their supervi-
sors about the program.,
Supervisors who endorse such
study by their workers will
obtain application forms
through bureau channels and
assist the employees in filling
them out. The applications then


will be sent through divisions
and bureaus to the Personnel
Bureau for coordination with
the schools.
After final selections h a v e
been made from among the ap-
plicants, all of the selected em-
ployees on each side of the
Isthmus will be assembled to
meet with representatives of
the schools for registration and
testing to determine their class
levels.
Classes will start early in
February. Ther e are three
terms per year and instruction
is offered at thirteen levels. Stu-
dents attend two or three times
per week, in the late afternoon
or evening, according to their
classes.
The scholarships cover re-
gistration, tuition, and cost
of text book. These expenses
are paid directly to the
schools by the Panama Ca-
nal and are charged in turn
to the individual employing
bureaus, which bear the ulti-
mate costs of the program.
Although a number of em-
ployees have undertaken the
study of English individually
under the Tuition Refund-Pro-
gram, this is the first large-
scale effort in Panama Canal
history to encourage this kind
of employee self-improvement.
Formal instruction of U.S.
citizen employees in Spanish
has been under way for the past
six years, and the new English
program will bring the ideal
goal of a bilingual employee
force a long step nearer.

MEoorists Arriving Via PanAm Highway

Are Warned: 'Leave Fido, Kitty At Home'


Canal Zone residents who
have relatives or friends who
are planning to drive tq Pan-
ama via the Pan American
Highway should inform them of
a certain animal regulations be-
ing applied by the Panama
health authorities.
In accordance with inter.
national agreements, the
Panama health authorities
have put up "No Cats or
Dogs Allowed" signs at all
entry ports to Panama.
If friends feel they can't part
with "Fido," they will have to
go through a series of formal-
ities which. begin with an im-
port license. The request for
the license should, state breed,
age, vaccines received,' and
other pertinent information. It
should be mailed to Dr. Ramon
Vega, Director, Departamento
de Sanidad Animal, Ministerio
de Agriculture, Comercio e In-


dustrias, Apartado 1631, Pana-
ma, Republica de Panama.
The license will be mailed to
the owner. Upon arrival at the
entry port, the pet's owner
must also show a veterinarian's
certificate stating that the
animal is in good health and
the type of vaccines given it.
The pet must be sent to
the Quarantine Station ken-
nels in the Old Panama
ruins area at the owner's
expense, where it must stay
for a period of 120 days,
with an expense of 50 cents
for each daily ration.
Zone residents who are plan-
ning trips to the interior need
not worry about pet trouble if
they remain within the Panama
borders. If they go into Costa
Rica, however, the pet will be
impounded for the 120 day
per od upon returning to Pan-
ama.


A new architectural motif
formed by concrete-and-steel
"eyebrows" combined wit h
round red tile has appeared on
the Isthmian skyline.
These two-ton "sunshades"-
some 50 are being attached to
the exterior walls of the new
Gorgas Hospital building are
similar to but not identical with
others already in use in the
United States, Brazil and Eu-
rope.
Their main purpose is to cut
off the direct sun from what
architects call the "skin" of the
building, thus reducing the air
conditioning load.
An aesthetic purpose is also
served by the design because
it ties the new un't in with the
older red-tile roofed buildings
at Gorgas.
It was chosen in preference
to an aluminum sunshade
(which did not harmonize with
Canal Zone architecture), an
aluminium-and-glass c u r t a i n
wall (which did not reduce the
air conditioning load), wooden
slats (which 'would rot) and


Anti-Freeze Check Throws Wrench


But Milk C
The meat asked the .milk
"Are you friz?"
And the chill answer came
"Yes, I is!"
While the freezing of milk at
the Ninth Parallel obviously has
to be accomplished through an
artificial assist, still the milk
cartons that are provided for
Canal Zone use allow for ex-
pansion in case of freezing.
Just in case. *
But did you ever try to get an
anti-freeze check here?
Mrs. Joyce A. Palmer, who
had been employed in the
typing pool of the Office of the
Comptroller of the Panama Ca-
nal, and is returning to the
United States with her husband
who is in the Armed Forces,
decided an anti-freeze check of
the family car would be a good
idea. The idea seemed even
better after weather reports
were received f r o m States'
friends.
The foreman at the Motor


Tartons Expan
Transportation Division was
astonished at the request. In his
. 20 years here, he said, he'd
never been asked for an anti-
freeze che e k to determine
whether or not it was of suf-
ficient standard to prevent the
car's cooling system from freez-
ing when exposed to freezing
temperature.
Never having been confront-
ed with such a request before,
the Motor Transportation Divi-
sion doesn't even have a testing
instrument for such a test.
Maybe a specific gravity meter
could be borrowed from the
Canal Zone College if a custo-
mer insisted on a test to check
the specific gravity of anti-
freeze. But, so far, no customer
has insisted on such test.
Normally, Panama Canal em-
ployees who travel to the
United States in the winter
wait until they debark at New
Orleans and have the anti-


d At Zero'
freeze test done there.
As for the evident prepared-
ness of the milk cartons in
case of a freeze, the Supply
Division has a logical explana-
tion of the statement on the
milk cartons which says: "Air
space at. top of carton allows
for expansion in case of freez-
ing."
It doesn't mean that below-
zero or even near zero weather
is expected in the Canal Zone.
It's just a thoughtful assurance
to people who freeze milk for
later use, or when milk is to be
transported great distances, as
the milk for the United States
Missions in Central and South
America.
Where is Mrs. Palmer going,
that she should even think of
an anti-freeze test? North Da-
kota, where snow. hazardous
driving and a 20-degree tem-n
perature. highlighted weather
reports this week.


floor to floor openwok tile
(which it was thought would
depress bed patients).
The eyebrows are of precast
concrete with steel reinforcing.
They were fabricated in the
contractor's plant in Panama,
and are subjected to a special
steam-curing process before
delivery.
Each eyeorow is curved not
merely for a pleasing appear-
ance but because this provides
an arch which helps hold it up.
Above each eyebrow is an
insert of round locally proces-
sed red-clay tile which has been
cut in half and the halves stack-
ed one atop another.

tion keeps the sun's direct rays

Do It Yourself

Now Applies-


To Laminating
Laminating of Panama Canal
employees' identification privi-
lege and hospital privilege
cards is to be a do-it your-
self project when the new cards
are :ssued this month.
This laminating process,
which had been performed in
the Personnel Bureau, has been
discontinued.
Self-laminating plastic sheets
to protect the new identifica-
tion cards may be obtained at
any of the Panama Canal Serv-
ice Centers. Full instructions
appear on each sheet, which is
simple to use. All one requires
is a laminating sheet, scissors,
and a steady hand.
Before laminating any iden-
tification cards, the card hol-
ders are reminded to ascertain
that the cards have been signed
and that the names of all de-
pendents are listed on the re-
verse of the card.
The laminating sheets, 4 x 6,
are 10 cents each and a suf-
ficient quantity was purchased
to supply all employees who
wish to laminate their identifi-
cation cards.


850 CZ Pupils

Await Letters
From RP jKids
More than 850 letters from
Canal Zone first and second
graders who wish to con-
tribute a gift to the Child-
to-Child Christmas Project
have been received by the
committee named by the
P a n a m a Canal Women's
Welfare Group.
This response from ele-
mentary pupils at Balboa,
Ancon, Los Rios, Diablo
Heights, Ft. Clayton, Ft.
Kobbe and Gamboa schools
so far outnumbered the ex-
pected volume of letters that
it has been decided to ex-
tend the gift program to
another Panama school in
the Chorrillo area.
Besides first and second
graders at the Republica El
Salvador School near the
Thatcher Ferry Bridge, the
project will include those at
the Central Amador school.
Children at these Panama
schools are now writing their
letters to the Zone children.
Mothers and children of
the participating schools on
the Canal Zone are prepar-
ing to supply the wanted
gifts at under $2 each which
will help in establishing a
personal child-to-child rela-
tionship.

some bugs to be eliminated in controlling the relative humidity at around 55 percent, and the
temperature at about 75 degrees. But employees like Foreman (Duplicating) Stephen W. Thorne,

Young Ballet Dancers To Present UF Donors
/.'-".q


Invitation To Waltz' At Balboa


As an added attraction for Sa-
turday (tomorrow), December "7.
at the morning show (10 a.m.) at
Balboa Theater a ballet program
by the young students of Profes-
sors Flor Maria, Arauz and Nitzia
de Martin will precede the re-
gular film, which is "Come Next
Spring."
"Invitation to the Waltz," a
famous ballet number, will high-
light the dance program that is
to include other numbers. The
choice of the waltz number is
noteworthy because of the large
amount of dance detail which the
youngsters must memorize.
Professor Flor Maria Arauz,
like her brother Professor Julio
Arauz, who heads the 'Ballet De-
partment of the Panama Depart-
ment of Bellas Artes of the Min-
at London's Royal Academy of
Ballet.
She has performed in -Europe
and Australia. And in addition
to being Panama's prime bal-
lerina, she has won praise as an'
actress.


Change, Dleposit

FariIly Readied
The Change and Deposit Facil-
ity, Room 101, Administration,
Building, No. 1105, Cristobal, will
begin operation in the very near
future. The facility is to be used
only by cashiers of the Panama
Canal organization. No checks
will be cashed or personal de-
posits accepted at this location.
The Comptroller's Office has
announced that all cashiers on
the Atlantic side will be advised
of the effective date of opera-
tions, days and hours of service,
and other essential details.


Professor de Martin, who with
Miss Arauz worked out the cho-
reography for the children's num-
bers, is another accomplished
dancer well-known to recital au-
diences. She is presently starring
on her own television program,
"La Mujer y su Figura."
There will be no increase in
regular Saturday m.krning .show
prices for the added ballet to-
morrow.


What Others Write

About The Canal
A historical sketch of the
Pnaima Canal -from construc-
tion days onward, appeared re-
Scently in a Spanish supplement
of the Venezuelan magazine
"Vea y Lea".
Signed by Everardo Carcano,
the 8-page spread is the leading
feature 'on the supplement and
is entitled "Panama, Bridge of
the World." The accompanying
illustrations' are taken from old
photographs and the text lauds
the construction spirit and the
technical skill and efforts...
during which millions of dollars
and many lives were dedicated
to the construction of the Ca-
nal.
The historical. background is
examined w it h reference to
prevailing conditions which ob-
tained during the early cons-
truction days: sanitation of the
area; political, technical and
economical problems incidental
to the building of a Canal,
...until "the dream became a
reality..."


PICTURE OF A PICTURE-At the retirement party last week for Su.
perintendent of Schools Sigurd Esser, right, he received, among other
mementos, a photograph, autographed by the Governor, of himself
receiving a Distinguished Service Award from the Canal. chief. Civil
,Affairs Director B. I. Everson, left, made'the presentation."


generouss
The Panama Canal attained
better than 99 percent of its
United Fund goal of $74,800. In
the main, those who gave were
generous in their contributions.
Reason for the failure to attain
the goal lay with those who did
not participate in any manner.
, The total Canal Zone United
Fund goal was $140,000. John D.
'Hollen, chairman of the Cam-
paign Committee announced
that the final total of contribu-
tions will reach $141,000. The
:drive is now ended.


Altars In Panama

Tomorrow On Eve

Of Mother's Day
It would not be improper to
say that the December festivities
start rather earlier in Panama
.than elsewhere.
Tomorrow Saturday, De-
cember 7 for instance, is the
Eve of Mother's Day in the
Republic .of Panama, which is
also a religious festivity known
to Catholics the world over as
Day of the Immaculate Concep-
tion.
By tradition, Panamanians
display colorful altars in their
verandahs or windows, with an
image of the Virgin XMary sur-
rounded by white-and-blue elec-
tric bulbs and flowery offer-
ings.
Thousands of citizens roam
the streets on the night of De-
cember 7 (in this case tomor-
row, Saturday), and on Decem-
ber 8 as well, to admire the
many altars which appear in
hundreds of balconies in each
street, as well as in most Ca-
tholic Churches.
As mentioned above, the oc-
casion has a dual meaning: the
religious and the family occa-
sion in the observan c'e of
Mother's Day.
Since Mother's Day is a legal
holiday and the law in Panama
states that when a legal holiday
falls on a Sunday workers are
entitled to enjoy leave on the
Monday immediately follow-
ing the date, most commercial
establishments will r e m a i n
closed.

Church Guild Sets

Christmas Sale
Swim-tops for kiddies and
young people will be among the
specially made items on sale Sun-
day, December 8, at the Knights
of Columbus Hall in Margarita
when the ladies of the Holy Fam-
ily Church Sewing Guild hold
their Christmas sale.
Stuffed dolls and animals will
also be featured. Among the
many hand-fashioned items that
will be on sale are Christmas
tablecloths, Christmas decora-
tions, costume jewelry, doll clo-
thes and furniture, mother-and-
daughter play clothes and little
boy's shirts and pajamas.
Christmas cookies and cakes
will also be offered.


Books about the Isthmus by
authors who live here are often
a happy gift at Christmas for
family and friends back home.
Each of them brings to those far
from Panama some authentic idea
of the life, the history and the
terrain of this unique place.
Books also are easy to wrap for
posting, and carry a low rate if
mailed in a package containing
no other merchandise.
Two new books were published
this year. Both are in the chil-
dren's field.
The Golden Frog, by Anico Sur-
any, a Panamanian who grew up
in Colon, is a colorfully illustrat-
ed volume for very young chil-
dren. It is enjoying good sales,
both here and in the States.
The First Book of Central
America and Panama, by Patricia
Markun, is the third volume by
this Balboa Heights author and
TV personality to be accepted by
a national publisher. It is being
promoted in the States through
book review magazines and by
book columnists.
For adults, The Jungle Whisp-
ers, by Kenneth Vinton, until re-
cently head of the Science De-
partment at the Canal Zone Col-
lege, offers a first-hand report on
his trips by cayuco and on foot
to little-known Isthmian valleys
and mountains.
Of a volume of poems, Panama
Quadrant, by Olive Brooks' a Star
& Herald reviewer said, "with
all their subtlety and discipline,
these poems have much that will
appeal to even the general read-
er. .. highly original verse of
real challenge, to which one can
return time and again."

South to Panama, by Amy Mc-
Cormack of Ancon, has been
going into Christmas stockings
for several years but is still a fre-
quent choice for newcomers, or
new friends. When reviewed in
The Panama American it was
described as "an amusing historic-
al novel laid on the Isthmus when
the waterway was being dug and
the Republic of -Panama was
young. It is a light epic of early
times no Isthmian or former Isth-
mian could fail to enjoy."
It Was Fun While It Lasted, by
Lt. William G. Monroe, includes
recollections of Tennessee and
Panama.
There are also several illustrat-
ed brochures, including Panama,
Its Geographic Panorama and
Growth, and Old Panama, both
by Panama historian Ruben D.
Carles, and Facts About Panama,
by Panamanian author Roy Tasco
Wesley.
Earlier volumes still in print
and readily available include The
Pelican Tree, a collection of chil-
dren's stories by former .or cur-
rent Zonians Elizabeth Lamb, Jean
Beaudry, Patricia Markun and
Jean Bailey, and Panama Patty, a
book of poems for small children
by Mrs. Bailey.
Mrs. Markun's earlier books for
children are still finding many
purchasers, They are The First
Book of the Panama Canal and'
a juvenile detective novel, The
Secret o'f Baru.

Acting Comptroller A. J.
O'Leary received the Panama
Canal Golf Championship trophy
from L. A. Ferguson, Supply
and Community Service Direc-
tor, this week.
The Comptroller's 0 f f i c e
defeated the Supply team at
Rodman Country Club in a tour-
nament held last Saturday.
Captain Jack Campbell led the
accountants to victory over
Capt. Alba Hutching's suppliers
by brilliant team' play.
The unique trophy, which was
publicly displayed for the first
time last week, was designed
and created by the Supply Divi-
sion. In a burst of enthusiasm
and optimism, the Supply
people engraved the name of
their team as the winner in the
1963 event before playing the
match. A new plate is be ng
engraved to correct this errone-
ous estimate.
In a brief speech of condo-
lence after the winner was an-
nounced, Mr. O'Leary stressed
the importance of just playing
the game rather than being
champions.
He quoted a, bit of Iowa
philosophy "Never count your
chickens before they're hatch-
ed" and added the Castilian
equivalent, "A closed mouth
catches no flies."
For the Comptroller's Office,
players were Dale Bishop, Tom
and Les Spencer, Bob Coffey,
Hugh Durrett, Jack Campbell,
Burt Mead, Bob Bowen, Mal
Wheeler, Dick Burgoon, Jack
DeVore, Mooney Huff, Tom
Scott, A. J. O'Leary, Charley
McArthur and Joe Turner.
The Supply team consisted of
Jim DesLondes, Frank Day,
Bart Elich, Alba Hutchings,
Joe Demers, Red Adams, Ray
Laverty, T. W. Napier, Joe
Burgoon, George Brawand, Ken
Frauenheim. Al Saarinen, N.

First Lieutenant Carl S. Mer-
lino, assistant professor of Mil-
itary Science for the ROTC in
the Canal Zone, was promoted to
the rank of captain in a recent
ceremony in the office of Paul
L. Beck, principal of Cristobal
High School.
Captain Merlino entered active
duty in November 1959 at Fort
Jackson, S. C., where he assum-
ed duties as operations, plans
and intelligence officer. During
the Cuban build-up he served
as Army intelligence officer for
the Key West, area.
The bars were pinned on by his
wife, Ann.

Suppliers
Capt. Ray W. Wheeler of the
Fire Division acted as starter
and official scorer. He added
excitement to the tournament
by bringing his stereo and
providing background sound for
the players teeing off.
The sounds of crashing glass,
brass cymbals, boo-ing at a ball
game, and other similar nerve-
wracking noise aided the con-
centration on the first tee.
Dick Goodman, pro at the
Rodman Country Club, was
helpful and had beverages along
the way for the players.
Starring for the strong side
were Mal Wheeler and Bob
Bowen. For the weak side,
stars were Jim DesLondes and
Frank Day.


It's elect-on time again for
Canal employees.
This time employees of the
Canal organization are being
urged to cast their votes for
the Panama Canal organiza-
tion members of the 1964-66
governing body of the Canal
Zone Group Insurance Board.
Elections will be held next
week beginning Monday, De-
cember 9. Ballots will be dis-
tributed by timekeepers and
should be marked and returned
to the timekeepers before De-
cember 14. Every employee of
the Canal is entitled to vote in
the election even though they
are not obligated to participate
in any of the group insurance
plans sponsored by the board.
The new Governing Board
will be composed of elected
civilian employees of the
Canal organization, Army,
Navy, Air Force, Federal
Aviation Agency and- other

Bowl Game Thriller


Right To Fi

The Canal Zone All-Stars held
off a last second threat by Ca-
nal Zone College to whip the
interschool champs 7-6 in the
annual Palm Bowl Game be-
forefore a capacity crowd in
Balboa Stadium November 27.
Approximately 2,000 p people 1 e
contributed enough money to
put the Canal Zone over the top
in the United Fund drive for
1963.

College struck pay dirt first
in the initial period when Lloyd
Spradlin stormed off his own
left tackle from six yards oulL.
A vital play in the game fol-
lowed immediately as the snap
from center was poor on (lie
extra point try, the kick never
getting off, and the Green
Devils led 6-0.
In the second period Cristo-
bal High School's Orrin C:e-
ment eng neered a drive from
deep in All-Star territory down
to the CZC 15. Clement carried
around his own right end to the
College two-yard line before
being bumped out of bounds.
After a halfback dive failed to
make it over, Clement carried
over on a quarterback sneak
from the two for the score.
Doug Billison's extra point lick
was good and the All-Stars led
7-6.
No more serious threats were
seen until the closing seconds
of the game. With only 50 se-
conds remaining to play, the
Green Wave moved to the All-
Star two-yard line after some
powerful runs by Jeff Leon,
Lloyd Spradlin and Dewey Whit-
taker. With a second-and-goal
situation from the two, the Col-
lege runner was hit hard as
he neared the goal. The ball
flew into the air and was fallen
on in the end zone for a touch-
back by Balboa .High's Bill

PEOPLE tNI T HE I::'PO'rLIGHT


DETECTIVE WILLIAM E. AFFELTRANGER,
identification officer for the Balboa Police Dis-
trict, compares fingerprints collected in the pro-
cess of criminal detection with known prints on
file. Incidentally, the police filing cabinets
contain prints of some 50,000 persons. Detective
Affeltranger attended Balboa High School and
was trained on the job for his present work. In
spare time he completed a correspondence course
in criminal identification with the Institute of
Applied Science in Chicago. Like other detectives
he entered police work as a uniformed patrol-
man. Earlier, he had been a Canal signalman
at Flamenco Island, following service as a signal-
man with the Navy (1944-46). Affeltranger also
has an avocation, that of branch president of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in
Balboa. Mrs. Affeltranger's home is Salt Lake
City. Several years after their civil marriage,
they went to Utah and were re-married in a
special service in the Mormon Temple. They
live in Los Rios with their two boys, two girls.
Mrs. Affeltranger works nearby, in the budget
office at Albrook AFB.


NEW YORKER ALBERT I. HERMANNY was
brought to the Canal Zone in 1941 by his father,
who had come down to work for the Dredging
Division. Al disliked leaving New York, but soon
he, too, was in dredging, as a dispatcher. And
after wartime duty with the armed services and
marriage to a Wisconsin girl he met in Paris,
he came back here and joined the-Canal Zone
police force. For nine years Detective Sgt. Her-.
mpanny has been assigned to criminal investiga-
tion work. One of his duties is that of a ques-
tioned document examiner. (Some people say
they did not sign notes, others forge checks, or
repudiate a typescript). In the photo, Hermanny
is comparing a photo-enlargement of a question-
ed document with the known handwriting of an
individual. He also is a fingerprint expert, as
are all C. Z. detectives. He learned the tech.
niques through special study, and recently at-
tended a seminar in Washington where he con-
ferred with one of the foremost questioned docu-
ments examiners in the United States. After
hours Al takes an interest in Little League base-
ball. And he likes to fish. No deep-sea expedi-
tions, he says, "just fish for the table." These
are never unwelcome, since there are five young
Hermannys now.

HISTORY BIT
President Grant in 1896
instructed the Chief of the Bu-
reau of Navigation to organize
expeditions for surveying pos-
sible Isthmian canal routes.
These surveys were made dur-
ing the period 1870-1875 by
Navy personnel and on March
15, 1872, the President appoint-
ed an Inter-oceanic Canal Com-
mission to appraise the survey
reports. On February 7, 1876,
the Commission announced a
decision in favor of a route
across Nicaragua.


El EP.Q~vl~iEm3; CoIIectio.n


by Eleanor Burnham
Canal Zone Library
Notebooks, 1935-1942 is the
first of three volumes of reflec-
tions, excerpts from book s,
snatches of conversations, and
ideas for future works kept by
the late Albert Camus. This
first volume includes all entries
made from the time when
-Camus was still unknown in
Europe until 1942 when the
publication of The Stranger
made him famous overnight.
Camus received the Nobel prize
for literature in 1957 and was
killed in an automobile accident
in January 1960. This volume
was translated from the French
and well edited by Philip
Thody.
The Celebration by Mary Dea-
sy is a novel which depicts
members of the Cournane tdmi-
ly at a three-day reunion after
a separation of many years.
Among the group are a house-
keeper, two priests and a
variety of parishioners. The
story is told with humanity, wit,
humor and with a feeling for
things of the spirit. This is not
a remarkable novel but it is an
interesting one.
The Voyage 'of the Nina II
by Robert Marx is the account
of the Atlantic crossing of a
ship which duplicated that of
Columbus. The crew used only
fifteenth century equipment,
ate the same kinds of food
which Columbus had taken on
his voyage and sailed in the


Nina II, a replica of the original
caravelle. This is a true ad-
venture story. It should be par-
ticularly interesting to local
lovers of the sea.
Spectrum II is the second
science fiction anthology which
has been edited by Kingsley
Amis and Robert Conquest. The
collection contains ten outs-
tanding examples of the art of
science fiction including the
work' of such experts- as Isaac
Asimov, Henry Kuttner and
Brian Aldiss. Science fiction af-
ficianados will be delighted
with these stories. Those rea-
ders who so far are uninitiated
will easily be converted.
The Woman in the White
House by Marianne Means tells
the story of "the lives, times
and influence of twelve notable
First Ladies." The short bio-
graphies include personal im-
pressions and historical ac-
counts of some of the most
famous of our President's
wives. The end papers of the
book show characteristic por-
traits of each of the women
described. In addition to Mar-
tha Washington and Dolley Ma-
dison the sketches i n c I u'd e
several modern first ladies,
among them Eleanor Roose-
velt, Mamie Eisenhower and
Jacqueline Kennedy. Accounts
of the reactions, interests and
enthusiasm of Jackie are par-
ticularly poignant because of
her own recent personal trage-
dy. I

PROGRAM DE BECAS A EMPLEADOS PARA


ESTUDIAR INGLES ADOPTA EL PANCANAL


150 No-Norteamericanos Se Beneficiaran


A fin de ayudar a los empleados no-estadouni-
dense a aprender el idioma ingl6s, la organiza-
ci6n del Canal de Panama iniciara el mes en-
trante un program de becas permanentes que,
una vez est6 en march, mantendrA a unos 150
funcionarios atendiendo classes nocturnas a cos-
ta de la empresa. Las classes se dictarAn en la
Asociaci6n Panamefno-Norteamericana en Pana-
mA y en el Instituto Cultural Panamefio-Norte-
americano en Colo6n.
El prop6sito es el de habilitar a los empleados
para que sean mas eficientes afin en sus presen-
tes cargos y mejor preparados para ascensos
que se presentaren.
Esta semana aparecieron anuncios en los pi-
zarrones invitando a los empleados que deseen


aprovecharse de la oportunidad de estas becas
a acercarse a sus superintendents para los fi-
nes consiguientes. Las solicitudes de becas se-
rAn tramitadas por conductos regulars a la Di-
recci6n del Personal para su coordinaci6n con
las escuelas.
Una vez se hubiere seleccionado a los becados
de ambos litorales se celebrara una reunion con-
junta con representantes de las escuelas a fin
de concertar las matriculas y presentar los exa-
menes para determinar a qu6 classes se asignara
a cada uno.
Los cursos empezarAn en febrero, dividi6n-
dose en tres periods por afio; la ensefianza se
harA en 13 niveles. Los estudiantes atenderA
classes 2 6 3 veces por semana en la tarde y no-
che, segfin los casos.


Las becas incluyen la matricula, mensualidad
y costo de los textos requeridos. El pago se
hara directamente a los planteles, cargandolos
la organizaci6n al ramo a que pertenezca el
empleado para los efectos de la contabilidad.
Aun cuando cierto nfimero de empleados inl
dividualmente han comenzado el studio del in-
gl6s bajo el program de Reembolso de Cuotas,
esta sera la primera vez que se acomete un pro-
grama en gran escala bajo los auspicios del Ca-
nal de Panama.
La ensefianza del castellano a empleados nor-
teamericanos viene realizAndose desde hace seis
afios y el present program de ensefianza del
ingl6s serA un complement en la meta ideal
de un tren de funcionarios bilingiles.

120 DIAS EN CUARENTENA Sobre el Istmno


AL LLEGAR 0 SALIR PARA

VOLVER A LA REPUBLICAN


Quienes tuvieren parientes en
el exterior que se dispongan a
viajar a PanamA es cpnveniente
que no descuiden ponerlos en
aviso sobre reglamentos sanitarios
vigentes en la Repdblica de Pa-
nama relacionados con cuarente-
na animal. (Ver SPILLWAY No. 17
de 11 de Oct. 1963).
Estos reglamentos son particu-
larmente estrictos en lo que con-
cierne a la introducci6n de pe-
rros y gatos. Entre las formalida-
des que se exigen esta una licen-
cia de importaci6n, en la que de-
ben aparecer la raza, edad, vacu-,
nas recibidas, etc. (Esta licencia
hay que solicitarla del Dr. Ram6n
Vega, Director del Departamento
de Sanidad Animal, Ministerio de
Agriculture, Comercio e Indus-
trias, Apartado 1631, PanamA, Re-
puiblica de PanamA).
Una vez aprobada la solicitud,
]a licencia seria devuelta por co-
rreo al solicitante. Al arribo al


puerto de entrada a Panama, el
duefio del animalillo domAstico
deberA presentar un cerificado de
salud del perro o gato, donde
aparezcan las vacunas aplicadas
y fechas en que fueran adminis-
tradas.
El animalillo debe de ir enton-
ces a la cuarentena animal (en el
area.de PanamA La Vieja) donde
serA internado -a costas del
duefio- por un period. de 120
dias con un recargo adicional de
50 centavos diarios por alimenta-
ci6n.
Para ahorrales molestias y pe-
sares de orden sentimental a ami-
gos y parier.tes, convendria pa-
sarles esta informaci6n por si pro-
yectan viajar a PanamA. Tambi6n
vale recorder que residents del
Istmo que saliesen al extranjero,
llevando consigo su perro o su
gato, tendrian que someterlos al
mismo tratamiento ya descrito
arriba cuando regresen... de mo-
do que ojo al ojo...


Sobre los cielos del Istmo un
nuevo motive arquitect6nico ha
hecho su-aparici6n; se trata de
unas "cejas" de concrete y ace-
ro combinadas con tejas-rojas
-y redondas que adornan la fa-
chada del nuevo anexo del Hos-
p:tal Gorgas. (ver fotografias
en la secci6n inglesa).
La innovaci6r- ya ha sido em-
pleada en edificios de Brasil,
Estados Unidos y en Europa,
y su funci6n primordial es la
de desviar la luz solar para que
no pegue directamente sobre la
"piel" del edificio, reduciendo-
se asi la carga sobre la ma-
quinaria 'de aire refrigerado.
El nuevo disefio tambi6n si-
gue imperatives de orden est&-
tico y combine a la maravilla
con el tejado rojo de los anti-
guos edificios del Hospital Gor-
gas. Se escogi6 en preferencia
al aluminio o la madera y otros
materials por varies motives
t6cnicos y arquitect6nicos.
Las "cejas" fueron fabrica-
das por el contratista en Pa-
namA y fueron sometidas a un
process especial al vapor an-
tes de su entrega.

Enorme Interes Despierta El Plan Pascual De Nifio A Niiio
MAs de 850 cartas enviadas por alumnos de primero y segundo grado
de la Zona del Canal, que desean contribir con el Proyecto de Navidad de
Niflo a Nifio, han sido recibidas por el comit6 nombrado por las Damas del
Canal de PanamA.
Esta respuesta de los alumnos de las escuelas primaries en Balboa,
Ancon, Los Rios, Diablo Heights, Fuerte Clayton, Fuerle Kobbe y Gamboa
ha sobrepasado enormemente el volume esperado de cartas que se ha de-
cidido extender el program de regalos a otra escuela de PanamA en el Area
del Chorrillo.
AdemAs de los alumnos de primero y segundo grado en la Escuela Re-
publica de El Salvador cerca del Puente Ferry Thatcher, el proyecto se ex-
tenderA para incluir a los alumnos del Centro Amador Guerrero que estA
cercano.
Los ninos en estas escuelas panamefias estAn ahora escribiendo sus
cartas.
Las -madres y los nifios de las escuelas participants en la Zona del
Canal estan preparandose para proporcionar los regalos a un cost de por
lo menos B/.2.00 para ayudar a establecer las relaciones de nifio a nifio.
El program de Niiio a, Nifio fue originado por la sefiora Rosario de
Galindo, Presidente de El PanamA Am6rica.

Intendente de Escuelas, senior Si-
gurd E. Esser con motivo de su

MIembros del magisterio, compafieros de trabajo y amigos personales de Sigurd E. Esser, Superinten-

MUERA EL PLASMODIUM


VIVAX Y FALCIPARUM

En lo que va del afio solo se han registrado 5 casos
de malaria entire empleados del Canal de PanamA; si se
mantiene ese ritmo se establecerA una nueva marca baja,
seglin se revel6 en fuentes autorizadas.


El porcentaje menor por cada
mail desde el afio 1906 fue estable-
Dido en 1956 cuando mont6 a .6
(punto 6). Al afio siguiente debido
I una reducci6n en el presupues-
o las medidas antimalAricas se
-edujeron y la rata ascendio a
i.8 por mil personas. La rata ac-
cual es de punto 4 por cada mil
*mpleados.
Las autoridades de Salubridad
;efialan que aproximadamente 50
nillas cuadradas de la Zona, in-
:lusive 15 comunidades, estaban
)ajo la vigilancia diaria de la Di-
visi6n de Sanidad. Trescientas mi-
llas de drenaje y el process con.
tinuo de matar las larvas es una
forma eficaz de combatir al mos-
quito en cliuas tropicales.


Hay cuatro tipos de malaria:
plasmodium vivax, plasmodium
ovale. plasmodium falciparum y
plasmodium malariae. Los mas
comunes son el vivax y el falci-
parum, en lo que respect a la
Zona del Canal.
El tipo vivax se caracteriza por
fiebres que suben y bajan en dias
alternos; al falciparum tiene una
curva de fiebre mas irregular.
El vivax es el mas comdn; des-
de 1960 se han registrado 46 ca,
sos de vivax y solo 15 de falcipa-
rum entire los empleados de la
organizaci6n canalera. Este ado
ha habido 4 casos de vivax y solo
uno de falciparum.

LA INEXPERIENCIA

VENCIO A C RIOS
El p6gil mexicano Jorge Ceia demostr6 el domingo por la noche
su mayor experiencia que el novel boxeador chiricano Carlos Rios,
al cual venci6 por decision unanime en el combat a diez asaltos
que sostuvieron en el tinglado del Gimnasio Nacional.
El p0blico recibi6 con una gran ovaci6n el triunfo del pugilista
visitante, quien a pesar de haber sufrido dos caidas en el cuarto
asalto, puso al borde del nocaut a Rios en el d6cimo, pero su falta
de fuerte pegada le impidi6 ponerlo fuera de combat.
Rios, que posee fuerte pegada y habia ganado sus primeros ocho
combates por la ruta del nocaut, evidenci6 que todavia le falta much
por aprender en el arte de la defense propia, pues era facil blanco
de los ganchos de izquierda de Ceja.
El chiricano sufri6 una herida en el labio inferior en el quinto
asalto, mientras que Ceja sangr6 por la boca en el cuarto asalto y
par la ceja izquierda en el novena.
Ceja pes6 126% y Rios 127 libras.
En la otra pelea pactada a diez vueltas, Eugenio Hurtado, de
113%4, vencio a Carlos Real, de 111 libras, poar nocaut, al no salir este
ultimo a pelear ,en -el quinto asalto, recibiendo la cuenta del .arbitro

Primeros Auxilios, Si Conviene Pensar


Pero Torpeza. . No! En TTdD. .......


El camino al infierno esta pavimentado de buenas intenciones,
'dice el dicho. Algo de eso hay en cuanto concierne a personas mo-
vidas por intenciones insospechables y... desdichadamente funestas,
que se apresuran a prestar auxilio al pr6jimo accidentado con grave
descuido de las precauciones que el caso amerita.
Para salvar de remordimientos de conciencia a los buenos sama-
ritanos y de maltratamiento de obra a las pobres victims de la tor-
peza humana, ofrecemos algunas muestras de lo que definitivamente
NO DEBE HACERSE.
1. Mover a persona lesionada con demasiada rapidez o indebida-
mente, como, par ejemplo, hacerla sentarse. No debe mov6rsele sino
con la debida cautela y despues de cerciorarse de que toda possible
fracture se ha entablillado debidamente.
2. Perder valioso tiempo atendiendo y vendando heridas super-
ficiales con descuido de las graves y posibles hemorragias o sofo-
cos y ahogos y dificultades en la respiraci6n.
3. Entrar a espacio cerrado a salvar a una victima inconsciente,
sin precaverse del equipo de propia protecci6n, especialmente de
aparatos para respirar aire puro.
4. Tocar a persona electrocutada, a victim de descarga el6ctri-
ca, antes de cerciorarse de que la energia que la victim esti ya
desconectada.
5. Aplicar ung0entos, grasa, harina o bicarbonato de soda sobre
quemaduras extensas. No solo contribute ello a aumentar la posibi-
lidad de infecci6n, sino que require con frecuencia el empleado
de cirujia para retirarlo. Ademas de ello dificultan la injertaci6n
cutanea.
6. Descuidar lavar los ojos o la epidermis con bastante agua
corriente, inmediatamente y por 15 minutes, despu6s de producirse
contact con substancia quimica irritante.
7. Dar de beber liquid o bebidas alcoholicas a personas semi-
inconscientes o inconscientes.
8. Dejar de Ilamar a un m6dico despu6s de los primeros auxl-
lios cuando la situaci6n lo exile como cuando se sospechan posibles
fractures o heridas de penetraci6n, infecciones o heridas en los ojos.
9. Causar infecciones mediante el empleo de articulos de pri.
meros auxilios antihigi6nicos, particularmente infecciones a los ojos,
debido a copitas lavaojos contaminadas 0 objetos semejantes.
10. Aplicar a irritaciones cutaneas unguentos, anestisicos, anti-
septicos 6 otros remedies que contienen substancias irritantes a la
epidermis a que causan reacclones de alergia. Lo mejor es un jab6n
suave (tipo castilla) y bastante agua coma primeros auxilios y limplar
Ia herida cuidadosamente si de ello se tratare.
11. Cubrir de demasiadas cobijas a personas victim de "shocks",
reacci6n nerviosa.


Persona previsora, dofia Joyce
A. Palmer, funcionaria de la Con-
traloria de la Zona del Canal, su-
giri6 a su esposo, miembro de las
Fuerzas Armadas, que realizasen
un chequeo para determinar la
resistencia de su autom6vil a la
congelaci6n, antes de iniciar el
largo viaje a Estados Unidos don-
de en esta 6poca del aiao hay
heladas.
Cuando el flamante coche fue
llevado a la Divisi6n de Trans-
porte, el capataz qued6 at6nito;
en sus 20 afios de trabajar alli,
jamAs conoci6 a nadie que solici-
tase tal examen en un vehiculo
que opera en climas tropicales!
Como es 16gico, no se cuenta con
los instruments necesarios para
realizar la prueba anti-congelante.
Lo usual, cuando se lleva un ca-
rro de aqui al Norte, es que se
haga ese trabajo al desembarcar
el vehiculo en Nueva Orleans.
Raro es que habitantes del No-
veno Paralelo piensen en neva-
das y congelaciones .. pero si los
hay... por ejemplo: los envases
de cart6n en que se expende la
leche en la Zona del Canal, de-
jan espacio libre para la expan-
si6n.
La Division de Abastos encuen-
tra que es 16gico que asi se haga,
no porque se espere una ola de
frio en el tr6pico ni la ins6lita vi-
sita de un tempano de hielo des-
prendido y al -garete... sino que
much gente decide, no ya en-
friar, sine congelar la lecha, es-
pecialmente cuando van a reali-
zar un viate o excursion y, en
esos casos, el espacio vaeio per-
mite la expansion si se produce.

dedicado sus mejores esfuerzos
al mantenimiento de su alto ni--

Su eficiencia administrative
ha sido recompensada en suce-
sivos ascensos y en cierta oca-
si6n mereci6 un aumento sala-
rial por haber ideado un mdto-
do mas eficiente de llevar el
historical de las lanchas de al-
quiler. Aun cuando desde e'sa
ocasi6n ha recibido otras re-
compensas, esa era la forma
inicial de dar reconocimiento a
sugestiones valiosas.
Pese a sus agotadoras ocupa-
ciones regulars, Pete dedica
sus ratos de ocio a otras igual-
mente pesadas, tales como ase-
sorar en asuntos dlel impuesto
sobre la renta, ociipaci6n en 1a
que Pete opina que deberian
haber mAs personas disponi-
bles en la Zona del Canal.
Pete Riley estA casado con
una paisana suya de Iowa y re-
siden en Diablo Heights, con
sus dos hijios pequefios.


sabido el peaje es pagadero por
adelantado. A Pete compete ve-
lar por que se lleven los regis-
tros, se hagan los cargos co-
rrespondientes a multiples otros
servicios prestados por la Di-
visi6n de Navegaci6n, tales co-
mo el uso de remolcadores y
lanchas, asi como el muellaje.
Riley obtuvo su adiestramien-
to bAsico y acad6mico en su
Estado natal de Iowa y vino al
Istmo en 1941 y, a excepci6n
de los 4 afios pasados en el ejdr-
cito durante la segunda guerra
mundial, ha trabajado en la
Capitania del Puerto de Balboa
