has announced his resignation from
the Panama Canal organization and
will take a position with an invest-
ment banking house which has its

was spent in Italy, France, Germany,
and other parts of Central Europe.
Steers was employed in the Gen-
eral Accounting Office in Washing-
ton, D.C., for about a year after

To relieve pain and minimize
damage from burns, the burned area
should be immersed in ice water
immediately, or ice water applied
to the burned area by compresses.
A number of large industrial firms
have reported results of studies using
this method of burn treatment com-
pared to older methods such as oint-
ments and sprays. In each study the
cold water method proved effica-
cious. As a rule pain relief was so

necessary. Even industrial burns
from electricity have been treated
successfully by this method.
Depending on the size and se-

submerged or compressed for from
30 minutes to 5 hours. Then if pain
does not recur an antiseptic oitment
is applied.

The Magical Carpenter of Japan
is a fast-moving adventure story,
with a love interest, a dash of the
supernatural and accented by the
activities of some deep-dyed villains.
One of the most interesting things
about all this is that the story was
written almost 150 years ago by
Rokujiuyen, a Japanese storyteller.
The 70 woodcuts by Hokusai parallel
the development of the plot and add
substance to a tale which will delight

"Miracle Worker"

Tryouts Slated
Tryouts for William Gibson's "The
Miracle Worker," which has been
chosen by the Theatre Guild as its
next major production, will be held
at the Ancon Playhouse each night
at 7:30 p.m. from September 5
through 9.
A smash hit on Broadway a few
seasons ago, this play tells the story
of Annie Sullivan, a determined
young Irish girl, who succeeded in
unlocking the mind and soul of a
child, deaf and blind from infancy,
who grew up to become the notable
world figure, Helen Keller.
The action takes place between
1882 and 1887 in the Keller home-
stead in Tuscumbia, Ala.; in the
Perkins Institution for the Blind in
Boston, and in the Tuscumbia depot.
The play is divided into three acts.
The part of Helen Keller calls for
a child between the ages of 8 and
16 and is a most demanding and
rigorous role.
Other parts to be filled by children
are those of Perry, a Negro boy, son
of the Kellers' servant and seven
children in the Perkins Institution
for the Blind who will take minor
or walk-on parts.
The Theatre Guild Board of Gov-
ernors has recommended that chil-

Society President Cato May an-
nounced his group won second prize
in Class X which includes areas
located outside the continental limits
of the United States.
Among the Isthmian Numismatic
Society activities in observance of
National Coin Week was a show held
in the Canal Zone and another in
Panama City in cooperation with the
Panama Philatelic and Numismatic
Society, both in April.
Entries in the contest, sponsored
by the American Numismatic asso-
ciation, whose theme was "Friend-
ships through Numismatic," sub-
mitted displays promoting interest in
coins. Local newspaper clippings,
reports of radio and television cover-
age of the groups' activities in
observance of National Coin Week
were forwarded to the ANA for
judging. This was the first year the
Isthmian Numismatic Society entered
the competition.
After being notified of its winning
second place, the Isthmian group
presented a certificate to the Panama
Canal Information Office in recog-
nition of participation in National
Coin Week-1966.

The Fair Share Club

Is Exclusive Group
Want to belong to an exclusive club? There is a very select one you can
join by making a single pledge.
The name: The Fair Share Club. The pledge: To give your "fair share"
in this year's Combined Federal Campaign which begins September 28.
All club members are given a special pin with the letters F/S engraved
on it. The pins can be worn as tie tacs, lapel buttons or just as pins.
But, no matter how you wear the pin, it means the same thing. You are
pledging to give your "fair share" to this year's CFC drive which benefits
both the Canal Zone United Fund and the International Service Agencies.
Everyone wants to help his fellow man, but the question is frequently
asked, "What's my fair share?" Of course, there is no single answer. One
guide which you can use to calculate a "fair share" contribution would be
1 hour's pay per month, or 0.6 percent of your income.
The guide below, developed by the U.S. Civil Service Commission,
suggests what a fair share contribution would be for those at various
income levels.

-------- Proportionately higher

If you would like to join the "fair share" club you can get your pin from
anyone of the following bureau chairmen: Albert Jenkins (Comptroller);
Mrs. Faye Minton (Engineering and Construction); Walter Dryja (Marine);
Miss Mary Orr (Supply and Community Service); Fred Cotton (Civil Affairs);
Major Phillips (Health); Paul Runnestrand (Staff Units); H. Perantie (Staff'
Units); Gilbert Sollas (Transportation and Terminals); Ronald Seeley
Join the club now. Wear your pin with pride, and join that select group
whose members pledge to do their "fair share" in supporting the Combined
Federal Campaign and the local and international health and welfare
organizations which it benefits.
Names of new members of the "Fair Share Club" will be listed in the
SPILLWAY each week. Add your name to the list and watch it grow.

opportunity to learn about all the

Is Scheduled

For Whyte Park
Inauguration ceremonies of a new
park and the unveiling of a plaque
honoring West Indian civic leader
Samuel H. Whyte will be held at
Pedro Miguel on September 3, at
11:30 a.m.
Sam Whyte Triangle, located at
the end of Trinidad Street in Pedro
Miguel, honors the founder of the
Panama Canal West Indian Em-
ployees Association (1924) and the
Panama Canal Employee's Death
Benefit Association (1933). Sam
Whyte, who was employed as a
policeman in the Canal Zone from
1907 until his retirement in 1945,
headed both organizations until he
retired and departed for Jamaica.
He died there in 1955.
In recognition of his founding
these two organizations and his
dedicated services in behalf of the
West Indian community in the Canal
Zone, Mr. Whyte was awarded the
Most Excellent Order of the British
Empire, M.B.E., in 1944.
The park honoring the memory of
the distinguished West Indian
worker and civic leader also serves
as a testimony to the West Indians
who worked on the construction of
the Canal and as an inspiration to the
Canal organization workers of West
Indian origin.

Missing Squirrel

Found in Laundry

A North American flying squirrel
coming to the Canal Zone in a bird
cage aboard the SS Cristobal flew
the coop and disappeared soon after
the ship departed New Orleans.
The bushy-tailed creature was
part of the unaccompanied cargo
belonging to William Wesley, a new
marine machinist in the Industrial
Division, who had arrived on the
Isthmus with his family a few days
"Squeaky," a brown squirrel with
a white stomach, really belonged to
10-year-old Tommy Wesley who got
him from a friend in Alabama last
Immediately an extensive search
was on for the fugitive squirrel and
a reward was offered for his safe
return. Every nook and cranny on
the ship was checked. All dark
corners, known to be his favorite
hiding places, were closely investi-
gated. Pots and pans were over-
turned. Closets searched, and pas-
sengers carefully examined their
beds each night to make sure the
2%-ounce Squeaky had not slipped
in before them. But all endeavors to
find the elusive squirrel proved
The search for Squeaky was con-
tinued when the ship docked at Cris-
tobal. Several members of the Canal
organization joined the Wesley fam-
ily in assisting the Cristobal's per-
sonnel in probing the innards of the
ship. But all was in vain. Squeaky
was nowhere to be found. He had
vanished. However, Mrs. Wesley was
optimistic and, remarked to the

search party that Squeaky would
return sooner or later.
Later that same day, Ancon Laun-
dry worker Charles Hogan, was
opening dirty laundry bags which
had arrived from the Cristobal, when
he was surprised by a little furry
creature that popped out of a bag.
It was old Mr. Squirrel himself-a
wee bit lighter perhaps, but chipper
as ever.
Squeaky's soujourn among the
dirty laundry ended happily for all
concerned when he was returned to
the Wesley family in Margarita.
Charles Hogan is happy, too, for he
will receive the reward offered by
the Wesleys. And as for Squeaky,
he's glad to be home with the family.
He had missed the hickory nuts he
left behind when he squeezed
through the cage on the Cristobal.


The Pacific Civic Council is seek-
ing new members.

ing in Council activities are invited
