sound of the school bells ushering
in the 1965-66 school year. Last
year's school registration record,
which was a record-breaker, was
topped the first day of school as boys
and girls took their seats in 18 schools
and new registrations still continue.
There are more schools this year,

In the Mill
As the SPILLWAY went to press,
the U.S. Congress was in the process
of amending the Daniels Act (the
retirement bonus act), to extend the
benefits of the new law for a month,
from November 30 to December 30
for eligible employees who accept
the 8.1 percent bonus.
The law had fixed November 30
as the effective date when eligible
employees could retire and receive
the bonus. The new bill would
extend the time to December 30.
The extension would benefit all
employees, for lump sum leave pay-
ments would be made in January at
lower tax rates.
If the extension is passed, the
Canal organization will follow the
policy of reemploying necessary per-
sonnel for a period that will permit
the organization to make necessary
adjustments in the leave and work
schedules that ensue when experi-
enced employees retire.

Cristobal High School, grades 10
through 12, has an enrollment of

385 students, and Cristobal Junior
High School, grades 7 through 9, an

The Canal Zone College enroll-
ment is at an all-time high of 1,245
students. Of this number, 587 are
members of the freshman, sopho-

part-time students.
In September 1960, the total day

college had 24 graduates. This year's
sophomore class has an enrollment

Carlos Bircenas and an array of his handmade knives. Probably the sturdiest knives available, their popularity is
high with outdoorsmen.



Because all the knives he bought
were never good enough to suit his
idea of perfection and balance, Car-
los Baircenas decided to make his
own. Bircenas, who began knife
making in Aguadulce about 20 years
ago, is now a skilled craftsman in
the art. Using a grinder, a buffer,
and a file as his only tools, he turns
out custom-made knives and mache-
tes in a small workshop in his Parque
Lefevre house.
Depending on the use for which
it is intended, Bircenas uses carbon
steel for hunting knives and stainless
steel for carving knives and slicers.
It takes him approximately 6 to 8
hours to make a knife depending on
the size and shape. Since the sharp-
ness of a knife depends on the steel
employed and on the skill with which
it is made, Bircenas aims for per-
fection and says that he has never
had a complaint by his customers.
He has made knives for Army
Special Forces personnel, para-

Features Slated

For 1967 Autos

The 1967 automobiles bought by
the Government will have 17 new
safety provisions just decreed by the
General Services Administration,
Government's purchasing agency.
The Government's safety require-
ments for its own cars are significant
in that many will become standard
in automobiles bought by the general
Foremost among the new features
required is an exhaust-control device.
This could be the break that will
make such devices standard equip-
ment. California, the top auto State,
already has a law requiring anti-pol-
lution devices on 1966-model cars
sold in the State. A similar law is
being considered in New York State,
second only to California in car pur-
chases. GSA expects to buy some
40,000 cars in the next year. In addi-
tion, the Department of Defense
expects to purchase at least 60,000
highway cars with similar new safety
Other requirements on Govern-
ment cars for 1967 include anchor-
age for five seat belts, padded dash-
boards, recessed dashboard knobs, a
light "flasher" system for disabled
cars, and similar devices.

BArcenas also makes gun grips,
saddle ornaments, and horse bits.

Handles for the knives are made of
ivory, or a combination of ivory,
aluminum, fiberglass and stainless
steel. Cost of a knife varies from $15
and up depending on the material
used in the blade and handle and
the amount of ornamentation it bears.
Barcenas is a diesel and heavy
equipment mechanic and has worked
with several contractors on the Canal
widening project.

The Age Of Voltaire can be read
independently as can the earlier
volumes. It is the biography of Vol-
taire and the story of the period in
which he lived. Its 786 pages, vol-
uminous notes and detailed index
are supplemented by an Epilogue in
Elysium, an imaginary discussion
between Pope Benedict XIV and
Voltaire on the significance and
value of religion.

Borden Deal's A Long Way To Go
is the story of a 600-mile journey by
three children who found their way
home to Alabama after a imisadven-
ture in Florida left them to their own
resources. This is a fine story-excit-
ing, moving, and finally rewarding.

It's easier to win when the team has cheerleaders as pretty as these on its side during the football and basket-
ball games at Balboa High School this year. The girls were chosen on the basis of ability by a panel of student
and teacher judges. They also designed the uniforms, they are wearing and are responsible for the promotion of
school spirit and publicity for the games. Clockwise, starting from the first girl on the right (with the head-
band), they are: Jane Wilson, Malena Bremer, Susan Wallace, Elizabeth Guilbert, Nancy Tinkler, Jerry Hunt,
captain of the squad, Pat Chandler, and Darlene Woodruff.

Retirement Ceremonies

Honor 28 at PanCanal

More than 700 years of U.S. Gov-
ernment and Canal service was rep-
resented by the 28 employees who
retired during the past month. Those
still on the Isthmus were honored at
the retirement ceremony held in the
Board Room of the Administration
Building, Balboa Heights, where
each was handed his retirement cer-
tificate by Canal Zone Governor
Robert J. Fleming, Jr.
Governor Fleming praised the
dedication of the people engaged in
the operation of the Panama Canal,
and told the retiring employees "on
behalf of 190 million other Amer-
icans, I want to say thanks a lot."
The director of each Panama
Canal Bureau was present to add a
personal message of godspeed.
Panama Canal employees who
retired in September, with the posi-

Britain's first "Ocean Princess," on her first ocean voyage, said she was
thrilled to transit the Panama Canal on the Northern Star. But she regretted
that she arrived on the Isthmus too late to meet Troy Donahue, a recent
visitor here. "Princess" Iris is 21-year-old Iris Styles of Swindon, Wiltshire.
The round-the-world voyage is her prize for winning in a beauty contest in
which hundreds of girls competed from various areas of the United King-
dom. She is accompanied on the voyage by her husband David, 23, a car-
penter who entered her name in the contest as a joke. "Some joke!" says the
Princess. "We've visited Las Palmas, Cape Town, Durban, Fremantle,
Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Wellington, Aukland, Tahiti, and beautiful
Acapulco. Cities I never dreamed I'd see."

The American College Test is re-
quired or recommended by about
950 institutions or agencies in the
United States. Any student planning
on entering college in the United
States during 1966 would do well
to check on the test requirement of
his particular college prior to the

ican College Test.

Cristobal's "College Special" Wins Praise

Many letters of praise and appre-
ciation have been received from pas-
sengers on the northbound voyage
of the SS Cristobal that sailed from
Cristobal September 5, 1965, and
which was referred to as the "College
Special" because most of the pas-
sengers on board were Canal Zone
students returning to colleges and
universities in the United States.
The reason for this was because
the management of the Panama
Canal and the Water Transportation
Division, in particular, were able to
provide various shipboard activities
to make this trip a memorable and
enjoyable one.
On board were two excellent stu-
dent musical groups to fill the
dancing and listening pleasure of the
passengers. One group, a typical Pan-
amanian Conjunto, featured Frank
Pretto on the organ accompanied
by Ed Idol, Ralph Smith, and Carlos
Rogers. All these boys attend the

official publication of the Panama
Canal, Balboa Heights, C.Z. News
articles and pictures contained in it are
made available to all interested news
media for whatever use they may wish
to make of them and may be reprinted
without official clearance.

The other group was the popular
Herald Trio, specializing in Amer-
ican folk singing and made up of
Dennis Ray, John Logan, and
Richard Carpenter, all of whom
attend the University of Tennesse
at Knoxville.
The management of the Water
Transportation Division was also
able to persuade Mr. Henry T. Car-
penter, who, as a fellow passenger,
was journeying to the States on home
leave, to act as a sort of Coordinator
of Shipboard Activities. This he did
by arranging and scheduling the
musical activities of the two groups
and offering ping-pong, shuffleboard,
chess, and bridge tournaments
throughout the 4 day voyage. Credit
here must also be given to the ship's
personnel, who gave whole-hearted
support to the activities.
Evidence of the success of this
venture can be seen in the following
excerpts from the letters of apprecia-
tion received to date:
"Thank you for a fine trip to
remember."-Jane Hearne.

Vol. IV, No. 16 50 Aiios de Servicios . Para el Comercio Mundial Viernes 8 de Octubre de 1965

En Proceso una Enmienda a

Nueva Ley Sobre los Bonos

De Jubilacion a Empleados

En moments en que el SPILLWAY entraba en prensa, el Con-
greso de Estados Unidos estaba en process de enmendar el Acta
Legislative Daniels (ley sobre bonos de jubilaci6n), para exten-
der los beneficios de la nueva ley, por un mes, de noviembre 30
a diciembre 30, a los empleados elegibles que acepten el bono
de 8.1 por ciento.
La ley fijaba el 30 de noviembre como fecha efectiva en la cual
los empleados elegibles podrian jubilarse y recibir el bono.
La nueva ley extenderia el tiempo hasta el 30 de diciembre.
La extension beneficiaria a todos los empleados, ya que la
suma total de sus vacaciones les seria pagada en enero, a una
rata de impuesto mAs baja.
Si la extension es aprobada, la organizaci6n del Canal seguird
la political de volver a emplear al personal imprescindible durante
un period que permit a la organizaci6n hacer los ajustes indis-
pensables en los programs de vacaciones y trabajo, que son
necesarios siempre que se jubilan empleados con experiencia.

P~igina 4 SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA Octubre 8, 1965

Un Aguadulcefio Experto en

La Confeccion de Cuchillos

Debido a que todos los cuchillos
que compraba no eran lo suficiente-
mente buenos segin su idea de per-
fecci6n y balance, Carlos Barcenas
decidi6 hacer el suyo. BArcenas,
quien comenz6 a confeccionar cu-
chillos en Aguadulce hace unos 20
afios, es ahora un expert artifice en
esto. Usando un esmerilador, un
pulidor y una lima como 6nicas he-
rramientas, produce sus cuchillos y
machetes hechos a la media en un
pequeflo taller en su casa en el
Parque Lefevre.
Segin el uso para el cual estA des-
tinado, Barcenas usa acero ordinario
para los cuchillos de caza y acero
inoxidable para cuchillos de cocina
y para rebanar. Le toma aproxima-
damente de 6 a 8 horas hacer un
cuchillo segun el tamafio y forma.
Debido a que la calidad cortante
del cuchillo depend del acero em-
pleado y la habilidad conque es
hecho, Barcenas busca la perfecci6n
y dice que nunca ha tenido quejas

de sus clients.
Ha confeccionado cuchillos para
el personal de las Fuerzas Especiales
del Ejdrcito, paracaidistas, clients
del Canal de PanamA y para muchas
personas en PanamA. El cuchillo mAs
pequefio que ha hecho media 3 pul-
gadas, y el mins largo es un machete
de 13 pulgadas. El hace juegos de
un machete de 13 pulgadas y un
cuchillo de 6 pulgadas para los caza-
dores, con hojas rectas o curvas.
Barcenas hace tambidn cachas de
revolver, adornos para sillas de mon-
tar y frenos para caballos. Los man-
gos de los cuchillos son hechos de
marfil, o una combinaci6n de marfil,
aluminio, fibra de vidrio y acero
inoxidable. El valor de un cuchillo
varia desde $15 y mais, segin el ma-
terial usado en la hoja y el mango,
y la cantidad de adornos que lleve.
Barcenas es un meeinico de
equipo diesel y pesado, y ha traba-
jado con various contratistas en el
proyecto de ensanche del Canal.
