VB New, Better Schools

STo Welcome Students

Looking very gloomy with the thought of going back to the drudgery of college life (notice equipment used now
in pursuit of higher knowledge), are Linda Donley and Ken Kline, students at Texas Christian University.
Before going back to school, these and other college students will have an opportunity to have one last bit
of fun, at an "Off to College Dance" at the Tivoli Guest House, tonight, from 8 p.m. til 1 a.m. Admission will be
$1 per student, and dress will be coat and tie. Reservations can be made at the Tivoli Guest House, and at the
Rotunda of the Administration Building.

VID Treatment

Given to Pup
A dog who really didn't know he
was a dog until a few days ago
became the first customer at the new
animal quarantine station hospital on
the Atlantic. side.
Pee Wee was just another puny
mangy puppy when James Bird, Ter-
minals Division General Foreman
Ship Stevedore, found him in central
Texas about 4 years ago and took
him home to New Orleans. Love and
tender care given by the Bird family,
especially Jimmy Bird, Jr., turned
Pee Wee, who is of a "mixed hound"
breed, into a big healthy freedom
loving 60-pound canine.
As a Canal Zone bound "pas-
senger" on the Cristobal, Pee Wee
was unwillingly introduced into his
quarters which had been occupied
by a Great Dane on the northbound
Almost immediately he started
chewing the wires of the cage and
tore holes in it. As soon as the holes
were mended, he chewed them up
again. Next, Pee Wee was tied with
a rope. But, he chewed away at the
rope, tore off the wires and was out

Canal Zone Schools are being
tailored to fit the growing enroll-
When the school bells ring this
month, marking the beginning of the
fall term for the U.S.-citizen schools,
students will find a number of
changes including a new elementary
school at Fort Gulick and another
under construction at Curundu.
Last year the new multimillion
dollar Junior High School at Curundu
opened with the beginning of the
fall term.
The work is all part of a long-term
plan to modernize the Canal Zone
schools, which like schools else-
where, have been straining at the
seams recently.
Contracts valued at more than
$3 million, a major part of them
going to Panama contracting and
supply firms, were awarded during
the past fiscal year for enlargement
and improvement of school facilities.
The projects, started the past fiscal
year and some still in progress, in-
clude the two new elementary
schools costing more than $700,000
each and the addition of a second
dormitory building, additional class-
rooms, and a library to the Canal
Zone College complex.
The two new elementary schools
located at Fort Gulick on the
Atlantic side and Curundu on the
Pacific, are one-story masonry struc-
tures designed to accommodate
approximately 650 pupils each.
The Gulick school, now nearing
completion, is being built by Diaz &
Guardia of Panama. It is an H-shaped
one-story building housing 19 regular
classrooms and two kindergarten
rooms. It will be completely air con-
ditioned and will be connected to
an adjacent playshelter by a covered

on contract to Framorco of Panama,

is located on the road between
Curundu and Fort Clayton. To be
completed for occupancy after the
first semester, it will have 15 regular
classrooms located in two buildings.
There will be special education and
project areas, kindergarten rooms, an
administrative unit, a play shelter
and ample parking areas. It also will
be completely air conditioned.
The Canal Zone College is adding
six additional classrooms to the col-
lege plant. Being built by Dillon
Construction Inc. for $131,839, they

Soldiers Take

Sailing Trip;

Are Becalmed
It could never happen to a sailor!
Two Fort Sherman soldiers were
forced to walk back from their sail-
ing trip to Cristobal recently when
their sailboat, a native cayuco with
a makeshift sail, was left powerless
and helpless when the wind died
The two adventurous soldiers, who
remained nameless, set sail from Fort
Sherman in a spanking breeze which
carried the homemade wooden dug-
out with its makeshift sail, across
Limon Bay.
The trip to Cristobal was made in
record time but the trip back to the
base was another story. The spank-
ing breeze becalmed and the two
"sailors" were left stranded in the
doldrums a short distance off the
Cristobal mole.
With a bit of huffing and puffing,
the servicemen managed to salvage
their craft by pulling it up on the
base of the mole. They went off for
help on foot and succeeded getting
it in the form of a Panama Canal
launch which towed the cayuco to
a Cristobal boat landing dock for
Panama Canal Navigation Divi-
sion sources reported that the two
servicemen got back to their base
safely-by land.

The distinction of having made the first $1,000 contribution to the Canal Zone United Fmund this year went to
the Mutual of Omaha and United of Omaha Insurance companies. Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr. (center), Pres-
ident of the United Fund, expressed his appreciation to Al W. Randall (left), Executive Vice President of the
two companies, and John P. Boler (right), Assistant Vice President of Mutual, who made the presentation in the
Governor's office.

Students eligible for free Panama
Canal organization schoolbus trans-
portation in the Canal Zone will be
issued a copy of the "Student Con-
duct and Safety Regulations on
Schoolbus form by their homeroom
teachers on the first day of school.
After they and their parents have
completed and signed the form, the
students will return it to the home-
room teachers who will issue the
bus tickets.
In previous years students have
reported to school prior to the open-
ing day of school to be issued the
bus agreements and bus tickets. This
will no longer be necessary since the
agreement forms will be issued in
homerooms on the first day of classes,
August 30.
The "Student Conduct and Safety
Regulations on Schoolbus" are de-
signed to protect the lives and safety
of students riding schoolbuses. Par-
ents and students should read the
regulations before signing and
receiving the bus tickets.
Bus tickets will not be required on
the first 2 days, but after that, the

By Eleanor D. Burnham
Irene Nicholson, who is a corres-
pondent for the London Times has
written a fine introduction to Mexico
in The X in Mexico: Growth Within
Tradition. Although she is mainly
concerned with the modern, Miss
Nicholson draws upon Mexico's
ancient history to present a balanced
picture. She believes that even the
retention of the letter X (where the
Spanish language would use a J) is
indicative of the strength of the
Indian tradition. The facts included
in this book will be useful to Inter-
American highway travellers and its
interpretative quality will fascinate
anyone who has ever been to Mexico.
Bogie is a biography of Humphrey
Bogart sympathetically written by
Joe Hyams and with an introduction
by Lauren Bacall. This book is a
fine piece of nostalgia for those who
will remember Bogart in "The Caine
Mutiny" and "Casablanca" as well
as for anyone who has seen these film
classics on TV as reruns. The book is
made particularly timely by a recent
Time magazine cover story on
Lauren Bacall, now Mrs. Jason
Robards, who was Bogart's wife at
the time of his death in 1957.
Six-Day Week is a thrill-a-minute
story about a young English reporter
who foils a Chinese Communist plot
to take over Italy. It ends in a hair-
raising cat-and-mouse chase though-
out Rome that will fascinate even the
most hardened suspense readers.

Kelly, Inspector Nightingale and
Sergeant Beddoes of Scotland Yard

natural death of an ancient Russian

murder. The two detectives soon find
that the grandson of the Princess as
well as her magnificent jewels are
missing-among them the fabulous

valuable possession of a once-proud
family. This is an exciting tale told
with subtlety and skill.

makes exciting reading.

By Way of Thumb

Hitchhiking from San Francisco
to Panama is a project few men
would think of attempting, but two
attractive feminine hitchhikers from
"down under" did it for a lark.
Norelle Wood, 22, and Wendy
Forrest, 26, both of Sidney, Aus-
tralia, met in Vancouver, Canada,
last year and it was then that they
decided to take this jaunt "just for
the excitement." Norelle was em-
ployed in San Francisco and Wendy
worked in Vancouver.
Wendy, after a 6-week bus tour
through the United States, joined
Norelle in Acapulco where they
spent 5 weeks before going on to
Mexico City. They stayed in the
Mexican capital for 6 weeks during
which they took a 3-week intensive
Spanish course in preparation for
the trip.
After leaving Mexico City, it took
them 4%-week to reach Panama via
the Inter-American Highway; they
were given rides in cars, trucks, taxis,
buses, and horse-drawn carts-with-
out paying a cent for transportation.
The two slept on beaches, in res-
taurants after closing time, on church
floors, in private homes, and once
on the back of a cement truck.
"We would spend 1 day in a
marketplace and the next we would
be guests in a beautiful private
home," Wendy said. "We stayed on
a coffee plantation, in the customs
building on the frontiers, and in one
town we were guests in a police
station. The policemen gave up their
rooms for us and insisted that we
stay there as long as we remained
in town."
The girls ate their meals in market-
places for the most part and some-
times in inexpensive restaurants.
"We had no trouble with the food,"
Norelle noted. "We ate some of the
oddest foods in some of the worst
places but never got sick."
When asked if they had any
serious problems along the way, they
gave an emphatic "no." "People were
wonderful to us. They took us into
their homes and would beg us to stay
longer. We were very much im-
pressed with the hospitality we en-
countered in each country. When
we arrived in Panama we spent the
first day writing to thank all the
people we stayed with and to notify
them of our arrival."
Luggage for each girl consisted
of one pair of jeans, one sweater,
two dresses and "loads of souvenirs."
"We did our wash in rivers and lakes
and hadn't seen hot water for a

month before we reached Panama,
we were exhausted when we arrived
in Panama but we would do it all
again," said Norelle. "It" wouldn't
have been the same had we traveled
by plane and stayed in plush hotels.
One really gets to know the people
and their customs this way. Of
course, the little bit of Spanish we
learned helped us considerably in'
getting along with everyone we
Of the Canal Zone, the girls said:
"When we entered the Canal Zone,
we were pleasantly surprised to find
that we could speak English and be
understood. It was very relaxing not
having to struggle through our
Spanish for the first time since we
started out."
They were taken on a tour of the
locks and went up to the control
tower at Miraflores. "It was enor-
mous. Everything was so interesting,"
exclaimed Norelle. "After hearing
about the Canal all our lives, to be
here seeing the locks in operation
was quite exciting."
Following a trip to the San Blas,
the girls flew to Miami where they
will split up-Norelle hitchhiking
back to San Francisco and Wendy
thumbing her way up to Vancouver.

Household Pets

Draw Complaints

From Residents
Dogs and other pets creating un-
sanitary conditions in Canal Zone
housing areas are in the doghouse.
About 90-percent of the com-
plaints received by the Panama
Canal's Community Services Divi-
sion concern untidiness by dogs tied
under quarters' areas by their owners.
Other complaints concern horses
ridden into the housing areas and
tied near the house, and vicious, and
barking dogs.
One of the regulations that governs
the assignment, occupancy and rental
of employee's living quarters says
that occupants of quarters may keep
pets, except poultry, in or around
their quarters provided the pets
do not become a source of un-
reasonable annoyance or disturbance
to neighbors.
The quarters' occupants are ad-
vised to coriduct themselves in such
manner as not to justify repeated
complaints from neighbors, and to
keep premises in a satisfactorily clean
and sanitary condition at all times.

Swimming Records Fall

At Coco Solo Pool Meet

Thirty-two new records were es-
tablished recently at the Canal Zone
Junior Olympic Swimming Finals
held at the Coco Solo Pool.
The meet was sponsored by the
Canal Zone Division of Schools and
closed out its summer swimming
program. Participating were 122
swimmers of different age groups
representing Canal Zone schools
from both Atlantic and Pacific areas.

The Board of Directors of the
Atlantic Women's Softball League
will hold an important meeting at

Conjunto to Play

For Collegians

Aboard Cristobal
A popular young Panamanian in-
strumental group will erase some of
the gloom of those back-to-school
blues August 25 when hundreds of
Canal Zone youngsters board the
SS Cristobal for the "college special"
returning them to the United States
and their studies.
Tito Mouynes and his conjunto, a
five-piece combo of university stu-
dents, will offer music for dancing
and listening for the returning
Mouyn6s, who plays the organ, is
a student at Canal Zone College.
Other members of his group, all stu-
dents at the University of Panama,
are Julio R. Vald6s, Joaquin P.
Franco, Elias I. Nevah, and Juan A.
Besides providing latin syncopa-
tion aboard ship, the conjunto will
share its music with thousands of
residents of New Orleans after the
Cristobal arrives at its destination.
The group is scheduled to appear on
several television programs in New
Orleans as a gesture of good will
and a means of promoting tourism
to Panama.
The August 25 voyage is booked
solid, according to authorities, and
is an indication of the conjunto's
Prominent organist Frankie AzcA-
rraga will lend his talents to a later
College Special scheduled to depart

Mas de 3 Millones de D6olares

En Mejoras Para las Escuelas

Las escuelas de la Zona del Canal
estan siendo acondicionadas de ma-
nera que puedan acomodar la cre-
ciente poblaci6n escolar.
Cuando empiecen las classes este
mes, en las escuelas para ciudada-
nos estadounidenses, los estudiantes
encontraran cierta cantidad de cam-
bios que incluyen una escuela pri-
maria nueva en Fuerte Gulick y otra
en construcci6n en Curund6.
El trabajo es parte de un plan a
largo plazo para modernizar las es-
cuelas de la Zona del Canal, que
como las de todo el mundo, han es-
tado sintiendo la presi6n del creci-
miento de la poblaci6n.
Contratos por mAs de $3 millones,
parte de los cuales van a firmas cons-
tructoras y abastecedoras de Panama,
fueron otorgados durante el pasado
aflo fiscal para ampliar y mejorar las
instalaciones escolares.
Estos proyectos, iniciados el afio
pasado y algunos todavia en progre-
so, incluyen las dos nuevas escuelas
primarias de un valor superior a
$700,000 cada una y la adici6n de
un dormitorio mas, salones de clase
adicionales y una biblioteca al com-
plejo de la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal.
La Escuela de Gulick, ya casi ter-
minada, esta siendo construida por
Diaz y Guardia, de la ciudad de
PanamA. Es un edificio en forma de
H, de un piso, de 19 salones de clase
regulars y de dos salones para kin-
dergarten. Estara dotada totalmente
de acondicionamiento de aire y es-
tara comunicada con un cobertizo
para juegos por medio de un pasillo

tion Inc., encargada de la construc-
ci6n planea tenerlos lists en marzo
de 1967, a un costo de $131.839.
Dillon inici6 recientemente la
construcci6n de la nueva Biblioteca
de la Universidad, a un costo de
$201.750. Probablemente la primera
biblioteca de la Zona del Canal dise-
fiada y construida como tal, el edifi-
cio acomodara 35.000 volimenes y
tendrA suficiente espacio para 120
estudiantes en el sal6n principal de
lectura. Ademas tendra un sal6n para
peri6dicos, 10 oficinas para miem-
bros del claustro de profesores, espa-
cio para studios especiales de grupo,
un sal6n de mecanografia, y una
secci6n para almacenamiento de

El segundo dormitorio de la uni-
versidad terminado recientemente
por Isthmian Constructors Inc. a un
costo de $92.793, tiene 11 recAmaras
para estudiantes con sal6n de recibo,
sal6n social, apartamiento para el
ama de leaves, sal6n de studio y
una unidad para cocina y sal6n
Una de las mayors mejoras esco-
lares en el lado Atlantico es la ins-
talaci6n de aire acondicionado en la
Escuela Secundaria de Crist6bal, si-
tuada en Coco Solo. Este trabajo,
hecho a un costo de $411.040 por
Peco International, deberA estar listo

Otros edificios de escuela de la
Zona del Canal, a los que se les esta
dotando de aire acondicionado, me-
diante contratos otorgados reciente-
mente, son la Escuela Secundaria de
Paraiso donde trabaja Abright Con-
struction Co. por $227.323 y la Es-

La distinci6n de haber hecho la primera contribuci6n de $1.000 al Fondo Unido de la Zona del Canal este afio,
correspondi6 a las compafiias Mutual de Omaha y Seguros de Omaha. El Gobernador Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
al centro, Presidente del Fondo Unido, express su agradecimiento a Al W. Randall, a la izquierda, Vicepresi-
dente Ejecutivo de las dos compaifias y a John P. Boler, a la derecha, Vicepresidente Asistente de la Mutual,
quienes visitaron al Gobernador en su despacho de Balboa Heights, para entregarle la donaci6n.

Debe Evitar que Sus

Animalitos Provoquen
Quejas de los Vecinos
Los perros y otros animalitos que
estAn creando condiciones antihigi6-
nicas en las Areas residenciales de la
Zona del Canal, estan en situaci6n
Alrededor del 90 por ciento de las
quejas recibidas por la Divisi6n de
Servicios Comunales del Canal de
PanamA, se relacionan con el desaseo
de perros atados debajo de las
residencias por sus duefios.
Otras quejas se relacionan con
caballos montados por las Areas resi-
denciales y atados cerca de la casa,
y perros bravos y ladradores.

Conjunto Musical Panameno Ira

Acompanando a Estudiantes que

Regresan a E. U. en el Cristobal

Un popular conjunto musical pa-
namefio alegrara a muchos de aque-
llos que regresan a la escuela el 25
de agosto, cuando cientos de j6venes
de la Zona del Canal aborden el
barco Crist6bal para el "especial cole-
gial" que los llevara de regreso a los
Estados Unidos y a sus studios.
El Conjunto de Tito Mouynes, un
combo de cinco personas integrado

Elton D. Sealey es oficinista en la secci6n de n6minas de la Oficina de
Tiempo de las Esclusas de Miraflores. Empez6 a prestar servicios con el
Canal de PanamA, desde que sali6 de la escuela, en 1957, pero lleva nada
mAs que unos 4 afios acumulados. Reside en la barriada de Rio Abajo, en
la ciudad de PanamA. Durante su nifiez vivi6 en La Boca. Cuando esa
secci6n fue demolida, su familiar se mud6 a la poblaci6n de Paraiso y fue
alli donde termin6 sus studios secundarios, en 1957. El Sr. Sealy es casado
y su esposa se llama Yvonne Joshua de Sealey. Hace 6 afios unieron sus
vidas y Dios ha bendecido su hogar con tres hijos. El mayor es Tony, de
6 afios; Sharon, la segunda, tiene 3 afios; y el mAs pequefio, Raymond,
9 meses. Sealey es un hombre amante de su esposa, de sus hijos y de su
hogar. Dice que lo que mAs le agrada es Ilegar a su casa despu6s del trabajo
y sentirse rodeado de los suyos. Durante los afios en que trabaj6 fracciona-
damente con el Canal, Sealey acumul6 various afios de servicios con la
Armada de los Estados Unidos. De su trabajo nos dice que se siente suma-
mente satisfecho y que trata de efectuar sus deberes lo mejor possible, pues
61 desea hacer carrera dentro de la organizaci6n y Ilegar a ocupar una
mejor posici6n. Le fascina la operaci6n de las esclusas. El barco de pasa-
jeros que mis le ha gustado es el "Canberra" y el de guerra que mAs lo
impression6 fue el "Alabama", cuando pas6 remolcado por el Canal. Todavia
recuerda su paso per las Esclusas de Miraflores; parecia como que no iba
a caber. Su mayor deseo es llegar a ser ingeniero electr6nico. Por eso,
ocupa muchas horas de su tiempo libre estudiando textos de electr6nica
con la idea de poder, alg6n dia, realizar sus suefios. Le gusta much la
nataci6n. Dice que tiene que ir a la Playa de Farfan, pues no tiene carro
y se le hace dificil ir a otras mas apartadas. Le encanta Penonom6 y el bafio
de Las Mendozas. Dice que es el lugar mAs bello que conoce en PanamA.

Viaje Sumamente Interesante

Hicieron Dos Jovenes Hasta Aca

Viajar desde San Francisco a Pa-
nama, pidiendo a los automovilistas
que lo lleven a uno, es un proyecto
que pocos hombres pensarian en
llevar a cabo, pero dos atractivas
muchachas de las antipodas lo
hicieron por diversion.
Norelle Wood, de 22 afios, y
Wendy Forrest, de 26, ambas de
Sidney, Australia, se conocieron en
Vancouver, Canada, el ahio pasado y
fue entonces cuando decidieron ha-
cer esta excursi6n "s6lo por diver-
tirse". Norelle estaba empleada en
San Francisco y Wendy trabajaba
en Vancouver.
Wendy, despu6s de un viaje de
6 semanas en 6mnibus a trav6s de
los Estados Unidos, se uni6 a Norelle
en Acapulco donde pasaron 5 sema-
nas antes de seguir viaje a Ciudad
de M6xico. Permanecieron en la ca-
pital mexicana por 6 semanas, du-
rante las cuales tomaron un curso
intensive de 3 semanas en espafiol
como preparaci6n para el viaje.
Despu6s de salir de Ciudad de
M6xico, les tom6 4 semanas y media
Ilegar a PanamA por la Carretera
Interamericana; viajaron en auto-
m6vil, camiones, taxis, omnibuses y
coaches movidos por caballo, sin
pagar un centavo por el transport.
Las dos dormian en las playas, en
restaurants, despu6s de la hora de
cerrar; en iglesias, casas privadas y
en una ocasi6n detrAs de un cami6n
cargado de cemento.
"Nosotras pasAbamos un dia en un
mereado y al siguiente 6ramos hubs-
pedes de una hermosa residencia pri-
vada", dijo Wendy. "Nos hospeda-
mos en una plantaci6n de cafr, en
los edificios de aduana en las fron-
teras y en un pueblo fuimos hues-
pedes de una estaci6n de policia. Los
policies nos cedieron sus cuartos e
insistieron en que permaneci6ramos
alli todo el tiempo que estuvieramos
en el pueblo".
Las muchachas comian las mAs de

las veces en el mercado y a veces en
restaurants baratos. "No teniamos
problems con el alimento", afiadi6
Norelle. "Comiamos los alimentos
mAs raros y en algunos de los peores
lugares, vero nunca nos enfermamos".
Al preguntarseles si tuvieron algin
problema serio durante el viaje, con-
testaron con un enfAtico "no". La
gente era maravillosa con nosotras.
Nos llevaban a sus hogares y nos
pedia que nos quedAramos por mAs
tiempo. Nos impresion6 la hospita-
lidad que encontramos en cada pais.
Cuando llegamos a PanamA, pasamos
el primer dia escribiendo para agra-
decer a todas las personas con quie-
nes estuvimos, y notificarles de
nuestra llegada".
El equipaje de cada muchacha
consistia de un par de pantalones
diablo fuerte, una chaqueta abri-
gada, dos vestidos y grann cantidad
de curiosidades". "LavAbamos en
rios y lagos y no habiamos visto agua
caliente durante un mes, antes de
llegar a PanamA", afiadieron.
"EstAbamos exhaustas cuando lle-
gamos a PanamA, pero lo hariamos
de nuevo", dijo Norelle. "No habria
sido lo mismo si hubi6ramos viajado
en avi6n y nos hubi6ramos aloeado
en hotels de primera. Uno llega
realmente a conocer la gente y sus
costumbres de esta manera. Por su-
puesto, el poquito de espafiol que
aprendimos nos ayud6 considerable-
mente para entendernos con todos
los que nos encontrAbamos".
De la Zona del Canal, las mucha-
chas dijeron: "Cuando entramos en
la Zona del Canal, nos sorprendimos
al encontrar que podiamos hablar
ingles y ser entendidas. Fue un alivio
no tener que luchar con nuestro
espahol por primera vez desde que

Visitaron las esclusas y subieron
a la torre de control en Miraflores.
"El Canal es enorme. Todo es tan
interesante", exclam6 Norelle. "Des-
pues de haber oido hablar acerca del
Canal durante toda nuestra vida,
estar aqui viendo las esclusas en
operaci6n fue emocionante".
Despues de un viaje a San Blas,
las muchachas volaron a Miami,
donde se separarAn-Norelle regre-
sara a San Francisco de la misma
