Governor Approves

New Housing Plans


Governor Fleming has approved
two new plans designed to par-
tially alleviate the critical housing
The first enables terminating em-
ployees and their families to be
housed temporarily in the Tivoli
Guest House at the expense of the
Panama Canal so their quarters can
be released more rapidly to another
The second plan comprises a
Quarters Quota System whereby
each bureau is allotted a specific
quota for its employees.
Releasing quarters before the
employee and his family actually

CZC Fall


The class schedule for the fall
semester of the Canal Zone College
has been prepared, and interested
persons can secure copies from the
college administrative office or by
calling 2-2380, 2-2676, or 2-4590.
A broad offering of classes in
every department of the college has
been planned, with classes running
from 7:40 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Matriculation of students for the
fall semester will be held during
the period August 1-26 from 7:30
a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through
Thursday. Registration hours on
Friday will be from 7:30 a.m. to
4:00 p.m.
Students must secure counseling
conferences in order to have their
schedules approved, and such ap-
pointments can be obtained now in
Room 209 of the college building or
by calling the college office. Regis-
tration forms are also ready for
distribution in the college admin-
istration office.
The summer session of the college
will continue through August 12, the
day of final examinations. The col-
lege had an enrollment of 707 stu-
dents for this summer session, which
is a considerable increase compared
with previous summer terms.
The fall semester will begin 1
week early this year; classes will
start on August 29. The faculty of
the college has been augmented with
an addition of nine new instructors,
and an increase in student enroll-
ment is expected for the coming
school year. Students interested in
fall enrollment should register as
soon as possible to be assured of
space in the classes they desire.

Nursing Director

To Speak at Gorgas
Dr. Rena Boyle, Director of
Baccalaureate and Higher Degree
Programs, National League of Nurs-
ing, who is presently visiting the
University of Panama School of
Nursing, will speak to the Isthmian
Nurses Association on Nursing Edu-
cation at Gorgas Hospital, con-
ference room, No. 2, on August 3,
at 7:30 p.m.
All nurses on the Isthmus are
invited to attend.

leave the Istlunus permits comple-
tion of necessary renovations and
the apartment is readied for the next
occupant much sooner than was
possible before this plan went into
The plan applies to terminating
employees and their families who
are eligible for repatriation privi-
leges, including terminating military
and Public Health Service personnel
assigned to a tour of duty with the
Canal organization.
The day the employee's household
effects are to be packed, he will be
given accommodations at the Tivoli
Guest House without cost for a
period not to exceed 21 days. He
and each member of his family will
be given charge privileges at the
Tivoli for food up to a maximum of
$5 per day.
As soon as the quarters release
date has been determined, the em-
ployee should contact the housing
manager at Balboa, or Cristobal,
who will prepare a memorandum
authorizing the Tivoli to furnish
lodging and meals in accordance
with the plan.
In the case of employees being
recruited, this plan assists in getting
the new employees housed and on
the job sooner.
As for the Quarters Quota System,
bureau directors and heads of inde-
pendent units have the responsibility
of insuring that recruitments and
transfers between bureaus will not
require housing beyond their quota.

The line on this aerial photograph of Gaillard Cut shows the approximate future width of the Bas Obispo-
Las Cascadas Reaches following the widening of the 3-mile stretch from 300 to 500 feet.

Final Cut Widening

Is Given Go-Ahead

Bids for the widening of the 3-mile
Bas Obispo-Cascadas Reaches of
Gaillard Cut, the last and one of the
largest contracts in the long range
$44 million Cut widening plan, will
be advertised about August 15,
according to an advance notice to
bidders being circulated by the
Panama Canal.
Approval for the final phase of the
work was given Saturday during the
regular quarterly meeting of the
Panama Canal Board of Directors
held in Washington.
The advance notice issued by the
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau advised that the bids on the
work would be opened on or about
October 14, 1966.
Excavation of this section of the
Cut will be divided into two zones


Katherine Taliercio, operating room staff nurse, Anesthesia and Operating
Section, Gorgas Hospital, proudly displays a certificate for a Quality Step
Increase, one of the highest performance awards given by the Canal organi-
zation. The award, presented to Miss Taliercio by Dr. Harold L. Rudman,
chief of the section, is in recognition of her outstanding professional skills,
administrative ability, and her grasp of supervisory responsibilities beyond
her position. Miss Taliercio has been associated with the Anesthesia and
Operative Section for about 10 years.

with the first zone being more than
95 feet above sea level and the
second zone being below the eleva-
tion of 95 feet with the average
Canal water level at 85 feet.
The two zones will total 9.5
million yards of excavation with the
maximum design depth of the ex-
cavation extending 47 feet below
average water level.
Bids will be solicited on two bases.
One will be for the excavation and
disposal of material from both zones
with disposal being to land spoil
areas and/or by barge to spoil areas
in Gatun Lake.
The alternate basis will be for
excavation and disposal of Zone I
material to land spoil areas and drill-
ing and blasting of Zone II material
for removal by the Panama Canal's
13-cubic yard dipper dredges.
Prospective bidders are advised
that the materials involved in the
excavation consist principally of rock
ranging from hard agglomerates to
weak shales and sandstones. There
is a small amount of overburden in
localized areas.
The excavation area in the 3-mile
stretch already has been cleared of
vegetation and earth overburden
through the removal of 5 million
cubic yards of material in a
$2,500,000 contract completed in
1964 by Joseph C. Moretti & Nat
Harrison Overseas Corp., a joint
venture of Miami, Fla.
The advance notice also includes
a page of climatological data show-
ing the average monthly rainfall at
six Canal Zone weather stations, the
maximum and minimum amounts of
rainfall on record, the average num-
ber of thunderstorms per month, the
average number of days and hours
with .01 inch or more of rainfall and
the maximum rainfall for short
periods of time.
The work of widening Gaillard
Cut from 300 to 500 feet began in
1959 when a contract was awarded
to Merritt-Champman & Scott for
$7,363,600 for widening the 2-mile

stretch north of Paraiso in the
Paraiso and Cucaracha Reaches.
Approximately 5,400,000 cubic yards
of material were removed in the dry
by this contract. An additional 3
million cubic yards were removed by
wet excavation by the Canal's
Dredging Division.
The Empire Reach widening
project, the second part of the long
range Cut widening plan, was
awarded in 1960 to the Foster Con-
struction Co. in a joint venture with
the Williams Brothers Co. of Tulsa,
Okla., and San Jose, Costa Rica,
whose bid of $6,353,500 was low.
This job consisted of removal of
about 7.3 million cubic yards of
unclassified material.

back to British rule in India, How-
towdie, a Scottish dish whtch can be
traced back to Mary, Queen of Scots,
and Harvey Sauce, dating back to
1677. Mrs. Fitzgibbon says that
people who pass up British cooking

P.C. Helps

Blind Get

Guide Dogs

The Panama Canal organization
is helping the blind to own trained
guide dogs by participating in a
label redemption program. Labels
from Vets' Dog Food purchased by
the Division of Veterinary Medicine
are sent to the Pilot Guide Dog
Foundation of Chicago, Ill., a non-
profit organization which provides
trained Pilot Dogs to the blind
absolutely free.
The Foundation presents the
Vets' Dog Food labels to the Perk
Food Co. for redemption at the rate
of 50 cents for every 100 labels.
The Foundation offers a Pilot
Dog, which has been trained for 3
months, 4 weeks training of the dog
and master team, food and lodging
and air transportation to and from
the dog training center. The cost of
this service is estimated at $1,500.
Cash returns from the label redemp-
tion help defray this cost.
The Pilot Guide Dog Foundation
has already received the redemption
value of 24,000 labels from the pur-
chase of 500 cases of Vets' Dog
Food by the Division of Veterinary
Medicine. The purchase of dog food
by the division for fiscal year 1967
is estimated at 1,800 cases.
The dog food is used at the
Animal Hospital and Quarantine
Station at Corozal and at the Animal
Hospital and Quarantine Station

Voting Rights
U.S.-citizen employees of the Pan-
ama Canal organization are urged
to exercise the privilege of register-

The Hatch Act guarantees every
Federal employee the right to do so
"free from any interference, per-
suasion, or official domination."
Federal employees are permitted
numerous other political activities
which extend in scope far beyond
these two basic rights.
Employees, for example, may
attend political rallies and conven-

admitted; and they are permitted
to sign nominating petitions in
support of individuals which they
wish to become candidates.
The law allows them to make
voluntary contributions to a regu-

Top Ranking Bootstrapper-John F. Manning, assistant general manager, Supply Division, will graduate from
Florida State University with a bachelor's degree summa cum laude August 13. Commencement day will also
be the 25th wedding anniversary for Mr. and Mrs. Manning, who are originally from Haverhill, Mass. Manning
is getting his degree in FSU's Arme'd Forces (Bootstrap) Program. Mrs. Manning is studying library science
during the summer and son Mark, 12, is attending University School.

At the Age of 53

John Manning To Get

Degree With Honors

John F. Manning began his col-
lege education in 1959 by taking
one or two courses at a time, while
working as an employee of the
Panama Canal organization. On
August 13 at the age of 53 he will
graduate with a near-perfect grade
average of 3.967 and a degree
summa cum laude from Florida
State University.
That would be cause enough for
a celebration by the family of seven
Mannings but commencement day
at Florida State also will be the
silver wedding anniversary of Mr.
and Mrs. Manning, who were home-
town sweethearts at Haverhill,
Mass., and were married at Gatun.
Manning worked for a while in
retail stores and factories in New
England after getting his high school
diploma in 1930 at Bedford, Mass.
Then in 1938 he entered the Army
as a radio operator. His regiment
was transferred to Panama a year
After getting his military dis-
charge he went to work in 1940 for


Plastic bump caps are not safety helmets but they have prevented many
hard knocks on the head and even more serious injuries as this one probably
did when Jos6 I. Bonilla, Balboa linehandler, fell into an open, unguarded
hatch on a ship at night. Though Bonilla suffered back injuries, he is sure
that his bump cap prevented a fractured skull as he landed on his back
and head in the bottom of the hatch.

the former Panama Railroad Com-
pany. For the past year he has been
assistant general manager of the
Supply Division of the Panama
Canal organization. Manning en-
rolled for his first college work in
Armed Forces (Bootstrap) Program
at Fort Gulick in February 1959. He
attended FSU classes at Fort Davis,
Fort Clayton, and Albrook AFB and
has made three trips to Florida State
for course work on campus.
One of six Bootstrappers who will
graduate on August 13, Manning
will get his bachelor of arts degree
with a major in French and a minor
in Spanish. After his retirement from
his Canal Zone job he plans to teach
Romance languages in Florida. He's
made just one B during his college
career. All of the other grades
were A.
Manning met his wife, the former
Jeanie Wihry, at a church play.
Both are natives of Haverhill. Later
she came to the Canal Zone where
they were married August 13, 1941.
A librarian in the Canal Zone Li-
brary-Museum, Mrs. Manning is
taking two library science courses
at FSU this summer.
They have five children. One of
them, Mark, 12, here with his
parents, is a University School stu-
dent this summer. Their daughter
Helen, 18, is working at a Millboro
Spring, Va., summer camp. A Canal
Zone College student, she plans to
go to Florida State to complete her
studies. Her twin brother, Matthew,
18, is a senior at Balboa High
School; James, 21, is a senior at
New Mexico University, Albuquer-
que; and John, 22, is a military
Robert F. Coyne, the director of
the FSU Bootstrap program, said the
program began at Tyndall AFB, Fla.
Florida State University contracts
with various Armed Forces bases to
provide instruction similar to that
given on campus. The Canal Zone
program began in 1957, Coyne said.
All military personnel and their
dependents, as well as civilians who
work on an installation (and their
dependents) are eligible to enroll in
the program, provided they meet the
admission requirements of Florida

Pelea Mientras

Otro es Vencido
Un campe6n de boxeo triunf6 y
otro fue derrotado en los encuentros
celebrados el domingo iltimo en el
Istmo. Ninguno de los campeones
exponia el cetro en esos combates.
En la Arena d~e Col6n, el cam-
pe6n peso mosca Senin Rios, derrot6
por nocaut tecnico a Felix "Rata"
Archer al minuto y 45 segundos del
cuarto asalto, despu6s de haberlo
derribado en el primer asalto por la
cuenta de ocho.
En el Gimnasio Nacional de Pa-
nama, el ex campe6n gallo Luis
Patiiio se impuso claramente por
decision unAnime en 10 asaltos al
campe6n de la division Eugenio
Hurtado. Es muy probable que Hur-
tado conceda ahora la oportunidad a
Patifio de disputar la corona en un
combat por el titulo, debido al
triunfo alcanzado por el ex campe6n.
En otro encuentro a 10 asaltos en
el mismo program, el invicto peso
mosca colonense Salvador Camargo
se impuso por decision unanime al
veteran Manuel Moreno, a quien
fracture el maxilar izquierdo en el
quinto asalto.

Este fue uno de los seis partidos de ping pong celebrados el viernes ultimo en el Gimnasio de la Escuela Se-

pu6s de haber pescado el barracuda mAs grande, 20 libras, en el primer
dia de pesca en aguas de Bocas del Toro durante la excursion de pesca
