T.E. Burrow

Ends "Visit"

Of 26 Years
Thomas E. Burrow, Assistant
Chief, Executive Planning Staff, who
came to the Canal Zone to visit a
cousin and remained for 26 years, has
resigned his position with the Panama
Canal organization, effective April 10.
Mr. and Mrs. Burrow will sail on the
SS Cristobal April 11 for the States,
where they will make their future
Although he didn't come to the
Isthmus until 1938, his family con-
nections with the Panama Canal date
back to 1904, when another cousin
came to work on construction of the
Canal and died here.
In February 1938, Burrow came
to visit cousin Robert Terrell Toone,
who retired from Panama Canal serv-
ice in November 1951. The latter,
who was Surveying Officer for the
Panama Canal, now is city tax asses-
sor-collector for Kerrville, Tex.
Life on the Isthmus appealed to
the young visitor, and Burrow went
to work in the Personnel Office in
April 1938. Then he transferred to
the Bureau of Clubs and Playgrounds
and in 1939 transferred to the Plans
Section and then the Management
Division of the Office of the Comp-
troller, parent organizations of the
Executive Planning Staff, where he
has been a staff member since its
inception in 1953. In 1948 he re-
turned to the United States, but came
back to the Isthmus in 1949 and has
been here since.
He was born in Hot Springs, Ark.,
and attended school in Dallas, Tex.
In 1931 he was graduated from
Southern Methodist University with
a B.S. degree in business administra-
After graduation, he worked in
Texas for a few years, mostly with
the Texas News Co., before coming to
the Canal Zone.
Mr. and Mrs. Burrow were married
here. Mrs. Burrow, the former Alma

Carton Astray?

Skimpy Address

May Be Reason
Employees ordering merchandise
in the States for shipment via SS Cris-
tobal should give strong instructions
to their supplier to mark the cartons
Packages are arriving marked only
"John Doe, Armv Terminal, New
Orleans." This causes great confu-
sion to begin with and if a carton
should go astray in the Terminal,
identifying it as destined to a Canal
Zone resident is difficult and the
carton could become lost.
Employees should instruct their
suppliers to mark the packages, and
accompanying documents: "John
Doe, P.O. Box etc., etc., Canal Zone,
per SS Cristobal."

The Gamboa Woman's Club second
trip of the season will be a 4-hour
launch cruise aboard Las Cruces
Wednesday, April 7. The launch will
leave Gamboa at 9 a.m. and return
at 1 p.m. for a round-trip from Cam.
boa to Gatun. Reservations may be
made by calling Betsy Jones, tele-
phone 6-259. Persons making the trip
should take their lunch.


PM East Lane Overhaul "Routine"

Routine overhaul of the east lane
of Pedro Miguel Locks was started
this week in conjunction with re-
inforcement of the lateral culverts i
and locks floor, a project not included
in the regular overhaul schedule.
The reinforcement project, being o
carried out by Maintenance Division
forces, consists of the installation of
reinforcing rods at regular intervals;
grouting of certain portions of the
lock floor, and a careful inspection
and repair, where necessary, of the
lateral culverts.
The work is being done as a pre-
cautionary measure. When the water
was completely pumped from the east
lane last week, conditions were found .
to be normal, and apparently there
was no evidence of buckling similar
to that discovered in the west lane
last month.
As some repairs are necessary, it
was decided to install reinforcing rods
of the type already installed in the
west lane. A small section of the floor
in the east lane was replaced in 1958
when it was found that the concrete
had buckled. The damage was similar
to that found in the west lane in Governor Fleming was visited last week by Jerry Wurf, president of the

Toot, Toot!
Facilities have recently been
completed for the blowing and
tape recording of steam whistles
at the powerplant of Pratt Insti-
tute, Brooklyn, N.Y.
This announcement was in-
serted in a recent issue of Steam-
boat Bill, journal of the Steamship
Historical Society of America.
Any steam pressure up to 150
pounds can be supplied to get the
proper tone of a whistle. Small
steam engines and calliopes also
can be run under steam.

"Glare-Proof" Glasses

Actually Cut Vision

The purveyors of so-called glare-
proof tinted glasses which are sup-
posed to make night driving safer
have resumed their newspaper and
direct mail advertising claims.
The National Safety Council and
many other safety organization have
often issued policy statements point-
ing out the fallacy of such claims.
According to authoritative research,
the tinted lenses not only cut glare,
but actually restrict vision in less-
lighted areas where it is badly needed
for safe driving.

Social Security

To Be Part of I
Failure to provide the numbers
when requested may result in can-
cellation of the individual payroll
deduction authorization and bond
issues thereunder.
The Panama Canal organization
has been advised by the Treasury
Department that its objective is to
have all U.S. savings bonds issued
by Government agencies under the
Payroll Savings Plan inscribed to
show U.S. Social Security account
number of the owner and the
co-owner or beneficiary.
U.S. citizen employees purchasing
Series "E" U.S. savings bonds by
payroll deduction, and who have
designated a dependent adult or
minor or other U.S. citizen as owner,
co-owner or beneficiary, will be re-
quired in the near future to furnish
Social Security account numbers in
each case.
The name of any U.S. citizen
appearing as owner, co-owner or
beneficiary on a new authorization
must be followed by the Social Secu-
rity account number. If the person
named is not a U.S. citizen the words
non-U.S. citizen must appear in the
space provided for Social Security
account numbers.
Employees who now have desig-
nated, or who may in the future wish
to designate as owner, co-owner or
beneficiary of U.S. savings bonds, a
U.S. citizen dependent adult or minor
who does not have a Social Security
account number should immediately
obtain the necessary Social Security
account number.
Application forms for requesting
a U.S. Social Security account num-
ber may be obtained from Personnel
Records-Administrative Branch, Per-
sonnel Bureau, Building 366, Ancon,
Telephone 2-1525.
Further notice will be given em-
ployees as to when the Social Secu-

Surse Pierpoint (Murray Burns) points out many of the wonderful fantasies
about his way of living to his nephew, Nick Burns (John Carlisle of Mar-
garita). "A Thousand Clowns," billed as an hilarious comedy with a laugh
for every clown, opens at the Cristobal Little Theater tonight and runs

ritv account numbers are to be re-
quired. The deadline is 2 or 3 months
away. Therefore, employees have

Why do the British drive on the
left-and we drive on the right?
A Royal Automobile Club official
says the modern traffic law comes
from an old custom. While walking
or riding on narrow roads and paths,
in days when a man's best protection
against violence was his strong right
arm, a man would move to the left
when he met an oncomer, to keep his
sword arm between himself and the
stranger, who might have designs on
his life or property.
It is curious that the old English
custom didn't immigrate to the Eng-
lish colonies in America and evolve
into left-side-of-the-road driving here.
The reason is said to be the prac-
tice of walking on the left of a team
of horses or oxen, or riding the left

Cut on the launch Las Cruces Wed-
nesday and Thursday.
Largest trailer group ever to visit
Panama, the Wallv Bvam Caravan
traveled down the Pan American
Highway from the United States.
Though most are from California,
manv other States of the Union also
are represented. All were parked at
the Presidente Rem6n racetrack, with
facilities provided by the Panama
National Tourist Institute.
They were scheduled to start on
their return trip to the United States
today. Caravan members also visited
many tourist attractions in Panama
during their stay. Special tours were
organized to the San Blas Islands and
Taboga Island; a special handicap
was held in their honor at the race-
track, and optional tours of Panama
and the Canal Zone were offered to
individual members.
The Panama Canal Information
Office and the Panama National
Tourist Institute worked closely with
Mrs. Betty Taylor, director of re-
creational activities for the caravan.
in arranging the tours.

Minor League Plans

Ceremonies Saturday

The public is invited to attend a
ceremony celebrating all six Pacific
Minor League teams having new
uniforms and the completion of the
field. The opening ceremonies will
begin at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, March
27, at the Minor League Park located
near the Balboa Railroad Station.
You can park your car there and there

Physical Fitness

Meet Scheduled

Saturday, April 3
All roads will lead to Balboa Sta-
dium Saturday, April 3, for many
parents and others. That's the date
of the first Physical Fitness Meet.
Two boys and two girls from each
of the U.S. elementary schools on
the Pacific side, aged 10 through 13,
will participate.
There also will be an exhibition by
junior high students.
Most parents have seen or heard
of, at some time, the cards given all
boys and girls in the 5th through
11th grades who are required to take
physical fitness tests unless they par-
ticipate in ROTC or are excused for
medical reasons.
The April 3 events, starting at 9
a.m., will give parents an opportunity
to better understand what boys and
Girls are involved in when they talk

Pacific Little

League Picnic

Planned April 3
The Pacific Little League and it's
Farm League will hold their annual

The players will meet at the Pacific
Little League Park at 8:30 a.m., and
will be transported by cars to Gam-
boa. Featured will be a softball game
between the Farm League All Stars
and the Little League 12-year-olds.
There will be a lunch at the Gamboa

Pedro Miguel Overhaul
(Continued from p 7)
badly worn valve parts, installation
of new seals in the cylindrical valves,
and cleaning and touch-up painting
of the locks gates.
According to the present work
schedule, the east lane will be out of
service until April 18, when the lane
will be reopened to traffic. Overhaul
of the center wall culvert-which does
not involve closing of the locks lanes-
is scheduled for April 18 to 24.
Meanwhile, traffic through the
Panama Canal continued to be heavy,
with the daily average from the
month of March rising to 35.9 ships
for the first 22 days. Tandem lock-
ages, or passage of two or more ships
through locks at a time, are being
scheduled whenever possible to
accommodate the maximum number
of ships.
Heavy traffic and the extreme dry
season conditions at present are
causing the level of Gatun Lake to
drop at the rapid rate of approxi-
mately .05-.06 foot a day.
A memorandum issued by the
Navigation Division has advised ship-
ping agents that effective March 29
and continuing to about April 10,
vessels arriving at the Canal for
transit will be limited to a maximum
tropical fresh water draft of 36 feet
6 inches. It is predicted that the level
of Gatin Lake will drop from 84 feet
to 83 feet 6 inches during this period.
The lake level is approximately 1/2
foot lower than it was at the same
time last vear.

Beatrix Briceio Expone

En el Tivoli el 4 de Abril

A invitaci6n del National Peni Women's Club, Capitulo de Panama y de
la Zona del Canal, la artist panamefia, Beatrix Bricefio, realizarA una expo-
sici6n de sus obras en la Casa de Huespedes Tivoli el domingo 4 de abril.
La exhibici6n, que abrirA a las 4 de la tarde, comprenderA 6leos y dibujos

Nacida en Londres, Inglaterra, la pintora Bricefio inici6 su carrera artis-
tica en 1956 estudiando en la Universidad de PanamA con el Profesor Juan
Manuel Cedefio, despu6s de haber tomado classes con la artist de la Zona
del Canal, Betty Bentz. Ese mismo afio gan6 un Primer Premio en Retrato
en concurso realizado por el National Pen Women's Club precisamente en
el entonces hotel Tivoli.
La pintora Bricefio-quien continue sus studios en Rio de Janeiro bajo
la direcci6n del c6lebre pintor brasilero Frank Schaeffer-ha presentado
exhibiciones individuals en: la inauguraci6n de la Galeria Centro Ameri-
cana, Rio de Janeiro, 1959; Museo Nacional de PanamA (1961), Asociaci6n
Panamefio-Norteamericana (tanto en la de PanamA cuanto en la de Col6n);
Centro de Beneflcencia Hebrea-USO de Balboa bajo los auspicios de la
Liga de Arte de la Zona del Canal (1961); Libreria Cultural Panamefia e
Institute Panamefio de Arte (1964).
La pintora Bricefio tambi6n ha participado en exhibiciones conjuntas con
otros artists panamefios en poblaciones del interior de la Repiblica y con
pintores brasileros en el Primer Sal6n de Cabo Frio, Brasil; Palacio de
Bellas Artes, Rio de Janeiro; Piccola Galeria, Maison de France; y Pen Club

Obras suyas cuelgan en pinacotecas publicas o privadas en Paris, Ham-
burgo, Copenhagen, Oslo, Madrid, Tokio, Chicago, Nueva York, Santo

La pintora Bricefio trabaja en 6leo linea, wash y, actualmente experi-

Empleados de las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel modelan el nuevo y el viejo tipo
de salvavidas. Se han provisto a cerca de 200 empleados del Canal con el
nuevo tipo de chalecos de trabajo de espuma plAstica, aprobados por el
Servicio de Guardacostas de Estados Unidos. Cipriano MorAn, a la derecha,
muestra el nuevo tipo. A la izquierda vemos a Gerald Anderson, quien viste
el viejo y voluminoso salvavidas de kapok. El salvavidas de espuma plastica
es inmune a la grasa y el aceite, y los flotadores de plistico pueden quitarse
si los salvavidas necesitan limpiarse. Los salvavidas de kapok permanecerin
en uso hasta que rindan el mAximo de servicio.
