By Eleanor D. Burnham

Captain's Papers is a story of the
whaling and other sea experiences
of Capt. Ellsworth Luce West as
told to Eleanor Ransom Mayhew, a
longtime resident of Martha's Vine-
yard, where Captain West was born.
His first voyage was out of New
Bedford on a whaling vessel and
when the whaling fleet declined he
pioneered in the hazardous Alaskan
coast trade as skipper of the SS
Corwin. The story of this man's life
and adventures will fascinate anyone
interested in a first person narrative
about an historically interesting
The Dark Trade is a new Crime
Club mystery by Anthony Lejeune.
His hero, Adam Gifford who by day
works on a London newspaper is
involved by night in intrigues worthy

Fool the Toff by John Creasey is
a mystery about a matrimonial
agency and its attractive proprietress,
Miss Love. The Toff suspects that
the agency is a racket shop and
determines to find out. He uncovers
a lot more than he had bargained for.

Storage Area

Is Off Limits
The 300 Area in Balboa, a storage
area located north of the Little
League Ball Park and between
Diablo Road and Gaillard Highway,
is off limits to everyone except those
who have legitimate business there.
Sgt. W. H. Alves of the Balboa
Traffic Department, explained that
the signs "No Thoroughfare" posted
at both entrances to this area meant
just that.
In other words the general motor-
ing public is not supposed to use
the road that runs through the area
as a highway or a short cut from
Gaillard Highway to Diablo Road
or vice versa-as tempting as it may
seem when traffic is heavy on the
main highways.
In order to make the warning
stick, Balboa Police have been
ordered to give traffic tickets to any
motorist found driving through the
area unless he can prove he is on

Brooks Picken and Elizabeth L. S
Mathieson is actually a combination
of two earlier publications, now .
issued as parts one and two of a
single volume. The two are: Sewing r
for Everyone and Needlework. In
the first section a beginner can learn
almost anything she needs to know
about tools for quick and easy sew-
ing; how to use and care for her '
machine; mending; tailoring; and
finally, elaborate dressmaking. In the
needlework section there is detailed
information about embroidery, knit-
ting, and rug-making. The illustra-
tions are numerous and explicit, and
all directions are easy to understand.

Gladys Cecilia Garrido es aprendiz estudiantil y ha sido destinada a la Divi-
si6n de Abastos del Canal de PanamA, en el sector Pacifico. Tiene ya 6 meses
de haber entrado al servicio de la organizaci6n. Naci6 en la ciudad de
PanamA el 30 de octubre de 1942 y reside en el sector de Vista Hermosa
de la ciudad capital. A primera vista se le nota que estA encantada con la
oportunidad que ha logrado de participar en el Programa de Educaci6n
Cooperativa que ha iniciado la Direcci6n de Personal del Canal de PanamA.
El adiestramiento que recibe cubre todos los aspects del negocio de ventas,
desde administrator de almacnn y supervisor de personal hasta vendedora
o cajera de almacnn. Dice que todo lo que tiene que hacer durante el dia,
se refiere a los studios que ha cursado en la Universidad Nacional de
Panami. Le falta unicamente terminar su tesis para obtener el titulo
de Licenciada en Administraci6n Piblica. Le impresiona much la
Catedral Metropolitana de PanamA. Piensa que, a pesar de los 3 siglos
que han pasado desde su construcci6n sigue siendo uno de los edificios
mis imponentes de la ciudad de PanamA. La Srta. Garrido es una
enamorada de su tierra: PanamA. Tiene cAlidos elogios para el Car-
naval de Las Tablas y para la gente de la Peninsula de Azuero. Dice 1
que el verdadero porvenir de PanamA se encuentra en los pastizales y
siembras del interior de la Repuiblica. Nos cuenta que cuando vino a tra-
bajar con el Canal se encontraba atemorizada, pensando en cuil seria el
ambiente y el personal que encontraria acA. Cuando lleg6, cambi6 ense-
guida pues se encontr6 con gente magnifica y se siente como en su casa,
pues todas son personas simpiticas y se habla much el espafiol. Al hablar
con ella, nos damos cuenta tambiin de que sus superiors tienen un alto
concept de sus conocimientos y habilidad.

Anmbal Illueca H. es aprendiz estu-
diantil, asignado a la Oficina de Ope-
raciones de la Direcci6n de Per-
sonal, en Anc6n. Naci6 en Pa-
nama el 29 de abril de 1946. Sus es-
tudios primaries y secundarios los
hizo en el Colegio La Salle. Actual-
mente cursa el IV Afio de Derecho
en la Universidad Nacional de Pa-
namA. Piensa especializarse en Dere-
cho Laboral. Dice que desde nifio se
sinti6 inclinado a las letras y luego
se dio cuenta de que el Derecho pro-
porciona una vision complete de las
diferentes situaciones de la vida. En
especial, sefiala que el Derecho La-
boral es algo sumamente nuevo, con
grandes posibilidades y de enorme
aplicaci6n en una enorme gama de
actividades humans. Illueca es pre-
sidente del Circulo Universitario de
Esgrima y fiscal de la Asociaci6n
Provincial de Esgrima. Tiene 5 afios
de practicar intensivamente este de-
porte y ha pertenecido a la repre-
sentaci6n de PanamA en competen-
cias internacionales que se han desa-
rrollado en Puerto Rico, Ecuador y
Miami, Florida. A pregunta nuestra,
responded sonriendo: "Sigo las huellas
de mi padre, tanto en los studios
como en el deported Se encuentra
sumamente entusiasmado con la
oportunidad que se le ha brindado
de trabajar con el Canal en algo que
se refiere much a sus studios. Dice
"Aqui en Operaciones de Personal,
un estudiante de Derecho Laboral se
encuentra a su gusto. Puede poner
en prActica lo que estA aprendiendo".
