Gorgas Hospital where he underwent
an emergency appendectomy.
During the patient's stay in the
hospital, Miss E. Madeleine Shaw,

1965. She carries a crew of 280 and
12 officers. The Ouragan transits the
Canal frequently on her run from

Panel February 24

"Why did you come to the Isth-
mus?" "What year did you come?"
"On which ship did you come?" and
"How much did you pay the maid"
will be some of the questions asked
a panel of Construction Days workers
at a meeting of the Isthmian His-
torical Society February 24 in the
Railroad Room of the Tivoli Guest
The meeting will begin at 7:30
and is open to the public.
Those who wish to attend the
dinner preceding the meeting, which
will be in honor of Mrs. Mary Cecil
Lowe, are requested to call Balboa

who is leaving the Zone soon to make
her home in Texas, arrived on the
Isthmus July 1906. She is a charter
member of the society.


After a half century's Canal service, Clifford L. Green, teller at the Margarita Retail Store, receives his retire-
ment certificate and smiling good wishes from Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr. T. G. Relihan, Deputy
Director, Supply and Community Services Bureau, center, added his congratulations for a job well done. Green,
who completed 50 years, 2 months, and 17 days with the Canal organization last October received special
recognition when Governor Fleming presented him a 50-year service certificate, an eminently satisfactory
extended service award, a check for $500 and a key to the Panama Canal locks.

142 Get


One hundred and forty two Pan-
ama Canal employees gathered at
the Tivoli Guest House last week to
receive service awards and pins
attesting to 30 and 40 years of service
with the Canal organization.
Of the group, there were 32 with
40 or more years of service to their
credit. Two of these retired at the
end of January.
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., who
presented the awards during the
annual ceremony, pointed out that
he too was a 40-year man since he
had recently completed 41 years with
the U.S. Army.
The Governor thanked the em-
ployees for their many years of loyal
and efficient service and said that it
was through their efforts that the
Canal was being operated in a
smooth and efficient manner.
The ceremony took place in the
presence of the Bureau Directors,
each of whom greeted the employees
in his unit and presented the service

76 Receive


Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., with a brief personal mes-
sage to each retiring employee,
presented Panama Canal retirement
certificates to 76 employees in a cere-
mony last week in the Roosevelt
Room of the Tivoli Guest House.
Dean of the employees who retired
from Canal service in January was
Clifford L. Green of the Panama
Canal Retail Store Branch, who com-
pleted 50 years, 2 months, 17 days
with the Canal organization. Green
was greeted by unexpected applause
as he stepped up to receive his cer-
tificate from Governor Fleming.
Governor Fleming had initiated
the custom of presenting a Key to the
Locks to each Canal employee who
retired with 40 or more years' serv-
ice. As he handed Green the retire-
ment certificate, he said Green
already had received the Key award
several months ago when the Supply
and Community Service Bureau
honored him for 50 years with the
organization and literally rolled out
the green carpet.
A Key to the Locks was given by
Governor Fleming to seven other
Canal employees retiring with over
40 years' service, whose combined
service totalled more than 350 years.
These were: Will R. Price of the
Panama Canal Printing Plant, 40
years, 5 months, 25 days; Cecil G.
de Mercado, Health Bureau, 49
years, 10 months, 6 days; Allan B.
Forte, Schools Division, 40 years,
9 months, 12 days; Leopold H.
Anderson, Navigation Division, 41
years, 9 months, 7 days; Thomas B.
Murray, 46 years, 5 months, 28 days,
and Jos6 E. Tufi6n, 40 years, 5
months, 25 days, both of the Indus-
trial Division; and Claudius A.

New Lighter



A potentailly dangerous cigarette
lighter has been called to the atten-
tion of health officials in the States
and the warning is being passed on
to Canal Zone residents via a memo
from the Panama Canal Health
The product is an "Airflam"
lighter, known thus far to be on sale
in Washington, D.C., and advertised
in Chicago, Ill., for mail-order sale.
A recent issue of U.S. Medicine,
which carried a story on the lighter,
quoted the chief of the Public Health
Service Division of Accident Preven-
"The lighter looks like a large lip-
stick or perfume vial. The lid comes
off easily and the vapor ignites imme-
diately on contact with air, with a
flame which is almost invisible. The
hazards include the possibility of a
child-or an adult-opening the
lighter and being burned by the
invisible flame or accidentally ignit-
ing furniture, clothing, or drapes,
which could lead to a full-scale fire
and serious or fatal bums."
The fuel is methyl alcohol which,
if ingested, may cause irritation of
mucous membranes, headache, fa-
tigue, unsteady gait, and gastrointes-
tinal disturbances, and visual dis-
turbances, including possibly blind-
ness, the PHS official said. He noted
that a newspaper advertisement of
the product published in Washing-
ton, D.C., carried the admonition,
"Keep away from children."

Dental Health Week Feb. 6-12

Children's Dental Health Week is being observed February 6-12
and Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., has called attention
to this important effort to highlight this emphasis on measures to
prevent dental disease.
The week is designated each year to be the focal point of a con-
tinuing effort to educate youth on the value of early prevention of
dental disease, especially tooth decay. Good dental health is important
to children as they grow to adulthood.
Giving full support to the week are the Panama Canal Dental
Society and related professional societies. These groups stress that
dental health is a matter of concern to Canal Zone residents and
to officials of the Zone.


By Eleanor Burnham

An Odor of Sanctity is a new his-
torical novel by Frank Yerby. Its
basic theme is man's continuing
struggle to understand himself and
to define his relationship to God.
This is a massive, spectacular, and
exciting story of feudal Spain. The
hero is a handsome Visigoth who is
heir to a feudal Kingdom. Yerby
reportedly has long been a scholar
of the period he describes in An Odor
of Sanctity.
The Cole Pcrter Story as told to
Richard G. Hubler was dictated
during many interviews, but was not
released until after Porter's death.
The book is crowded with dozens of
photographs of the famous people of
show business, with anecdotes of
their activities, and with Porter's own
reactions to the distinctions and
triumphs which he enjoyed. The
more than 15-page bibliography of
"Cole Porter Songs" provides a
fitting commentary on this talented
man's prodigious output and adds
considerably to the value of the book
for reference purposes.
Judith Merril once again has
edited successfully the 10th Annual
Edition, The Year's Best SF (science
fiction). This year's collection con-
tains some famous names: Allan E.
Nourse, Isaac Bashevis Singer, and
Jose Maria Gironella among others.
Judith Merril is a writer herself.
She believes that science fiction is
gradually merging into the main-
stream of literature. Judging by the
polished writing and skillful plotting
evident in these stories, Miss Merril's
evaluation seems to be well founded.
The Toff and the Kidnapped Child
is a new novel by John Creasey. Once
again Creasey's Toff, the Honourable

Richard Rollison, displays billiance,
savoir-faire, and perseverance in
solving a baffling mystery. A beau-
tiful blonde is involved in this
puzzler, but of course the Toff clings
sternly to duty.
Unsafe at Any Speed, by Ralph
Nader, is more than an expos of
designed-in dangers in American
automobiles. It provides a convincing
record of the fact that a safe car can
indeed be built and will be built if
the public will demand it. The table
of contents of this book shows its
scope through these chapter head-
ings: The sporty Corvair; Disaster
deferred; The second collision; The
power to pollute; The engineers; The
stylists; The traffic safety establish-
ment; and The coming struggle for
safety. An appendix chart shows how
one can rate his own car for visual

De 1960 a 1964 los faniticos de
Rainbow City, tenian que usar el
campo miniature de golf que que-
daba entire las calls Trinidad y Bar-
bados de esa poblaci6n. El area era
sumamente peligrosa por el trAnsito
de vehiculos y el Consejo Civico de
Rainbow City hizo un pedido de un
terreno en un Area mAs ventajosa, al
Cobernador Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
de la Zona del Canal. El pedido fue
acogido favorablemente y los golfis-
tas, reactivaron su club llamado
ahora "Sea Breeze Golf Club".

de Servicios Especiales, Sr. J. W.
Hare y del Coordinador para Recrea-
ci6n de Adultos de la comunidad,

mera tarjeta de Miembro Honorario,

El president agradeci6 la gran
ayuda del Canal de Panami que hizo
possible la terminaci6n del proyecto
y la cooperaci6n de otras personas
