;how Saturday, Sunday

The Canal Zone Gem and Mineral
ciety will have what promises to
its best-ever exhibit Saturday and
nday, November 12 and 13, on the
ond floor of the Balboa Service
nter. The rockhoundd" exhibit,
ich includes displays of stones from
attractive roughs to beautifully
shed products, will be open from
.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 1 p.m.
8 p.m. Sunday. The public is
ited and there is no admission
Members of the Gem and Mineral
:iety will be on hand to demon-
ite rock cutting machines, faceting
uipment, and tumblers. They also
1 answer any questions on the
uipment and rock cutting and
fishing processes.
Jewelry for men, women, and chil-
n, made from Panama stones which
'e been slabbed, cut, polished and

some mounted in gold or silver, will
be sold. Also for sale will be rock
specimens for collector displays.
A variety of articles made of cut and
polished stones, such as bookends,
pen bases, paperweights, tables, and
other items will be on display.
Although gem and mineral collec-
tion had been going on for years on
the Isthmus, it wasn't until 1955 that
24 rockhounds got together and
formed the C.Z. Gem and Mineral
Society, which now has a member-
ship of 70 persons. Some collectors are
just that. Others are lapidaries who
cut and polish the stones they collect.
It's amazing what can be done with
imagination, cut and polished stones,
bits of crushed rock, and stone slabs.
There's something exciting about
the discovery of a new dimension in
an everyday material such as stones.

Boer War of 1899 Changed

Her Life, Isthmus History

If it hadn't been for the Boer War,
Tollef Bache Monniche, a young Nor-
wegian engineer, probably wouldn't
have gone to the United States. And
if he hadn't gone to the United States,
he quite likely would not have been
the engineer who designed the emer-
gency dams of the Panama Canal.
Nor would he have been the first
to put Boquete coffee on the map.
Nor would he have met and married

always wanted to go to Africa, but
the Boer War (1899-1902) changed
his plans and he went to the United
States instead.
From 1907 to 1908, he was with
the Isthmian Canal Commission. His
direct connection with Canal history
on the Isthmus began when the pres-
ident of the American Society of Col-
lege Engineers was asked to recom-
mend an engineer to work on the
locks. With that recommendation,
Monniche came to the Canal Zone
in 1908.

Slide Threat

Low Despite

Heavy Rains
Despite the recent torrential rains,
Panama Canal engineers report that
active slide areas are holding up well,
although there is some increased
activity in areas which would not
endanger the Canal directly.
Recent inspection of active Canal
slide areas revealed a minor block
failure in an area of old construction
period failure known as Buena Vista
Slide-2 miles south of Gamboa. Only
a small amount of material was in-
volved but the area is under daily
Considerable activity was noted in
the escarpment of East Culebra Slide,
north of Gold Hill, but this action
does not endanger the Canal directly
because it is too far from the Canal
prism line.
The Cartagena Slide, a short dis-
tance north of Pedro Miguel, which
required considerable dredging early
in 1965, and the Las Cascadas Slide,
3 miles south of Gamnboa, which
broke out in November 1965 and re-
quired 18,000 cubic yards of dredg-
ing, have shown no noticeable motion
during the past year and are appar-
ently remaining stable, engineers
All these slide areas except Carta-
gena Slide are located on the east
bank of the Canal.

Zip Code Address

Zip Codes have been assigned to
postal installations under the jurisdic-
tion of the U.S. Postal Services with-
in the United States, its territories,
and possessions. No Zip Code num-
bers have been assigned to the

For the benefit of Canal Zone
residents, United States national Zip
Code directories have been sent to all
Canal Zone post offices and will be
available to patrons requesting Zip
Code numbers for States addresses.
The Zip Code system was inau-
gurated by the postal service jointly
to speed mail sorting-and thus speed

Skeet, Trap Shooting

Gaining in Popularity

Growth of skeet and trap shooting,
a sport in the Canal Zone for more
than 45 years, had been rather slow.
until recently when quite a few joined
the ranks of shooters. Most persons
have shied away from the sport think-
ing it too complicated. In many cases,
though, a new shooter becomes a
crack shot and is soon competing with
the best shooters.

There are four active shooting
ranges in the Canal Zone. One is
located in Fort Amador behind the
Fort Amador Officers Mess. Shooting
here starts at 1:30 p.m., Saturdays
and continues until dark. The FarFan
Club is another range and it is located
on the road to Palo Seco at a turnoff
on the right. This range is open
Sunday from 2 p.m. until dusk.

A little beyond Paraiso is the Pedro
Miguel Gun Club. The turnoff to the
range is designated by a pair of bullet
shells at the side of the road. A prac-
tice session lasting until dark is held
here every Thursday beginning at
4 p.m. On the Atlantic side is the
Cristobal Gun Club, located at Brazos
Brooks. Shooting sessions are held
there every Wednesday. There also
is a restaurant there which serves
good meals.

Besides the regular shoots there are
special registered shoots and trophy
shoots which are announced regularly.
All those who are interested in learn-
ing to shoot may go to one of the
ranges and ask anyone around for
information. If you don't have a gun,
someone will let you try theirs and
shells may be bought on the range.

Mrs. Lyle Reynolds at the faceting machine. Panama stones are not faceting material. Only stones that have
brilliance may be faceted and these are not found in Panama. Mrs. Reynolds is probably faceting a man-made
stone. She uses the brush to add water to the disk as it is needed. Wallace L. Amundson, Curundu, holds a tray of
polished stones which are ready to be set in jewelry. The beautifully polished gemstones took hours of tumbling
and polishing. (Additional picture in Spanish section.)

stones is used by the medical profes-
sion for patients whose illness relates
to tension, stress, fear, and other emo-
tions referred to as "nerves." Many
hobbyists in the United States share
the benefits of their hobby with the
ill, the handicapped, mentally ill, and
the socially maladjusted.
Some have done extensive work in
setting up gem and mineral collec-
tions with tags and descriptions in
Braille and trained the blind to polish
stones and make jewelry.
The Canal Zone Gem and Mineral
Society is an active group and the
members are working to increase their
activities and membership. Meetings
are held the second and fourth Friday
of each month at the society's club-
house, which is located near Pier 18
in Balboa. The building has a meeting
room, displays, and a complete work-
Each member has a key to the shop
and may use the variety of equipment
for cutting stones and working them.
For 50 cents an hour he may use the
machines and blades. The charge is
only 25 cents per hour if the member
uses his own blade for cutting. Tum-
blers rent for $2 a month. These
facilities also are extended to associate
members of the society.
Anyone interested in becoming a
rockhound and wishing to join the
Canal Zone Gem and Mineral Society
is welcome to attend a meeting.

A long-playing record of Christ-
mas songs has just been made avail-
able locally, featuring the Bella Vista
Children's Home choir. Out just in
time for Christmas giving, the record
comes beautifully jacketed, with a
San Blas mola photographed in
colors showing details of the Cuna
interpretation 'of the Nativity scene.
The 17 children of the choir of the
Children's Home sing several villan-
cicos (roughly the Spanish equivalent
of our Christmas carol) accompanied
by string and wind instruments. Tyo
of the instrumentalists, Miss Marjorie
Smith and William Boughner, are the
children of Panama Canal employees.
A beautiful brochure included with
each record gives both Spanish and
English words to the Christmas songs,
and contains photographs of the choir,
the instrumentalists, and the com-
plicated procedure of producing a
professional quality record featuring
17 young girls.
The record is available locally at
Saint Luke's Cathedral, at the Bella
Vista Children's Home and at San

Mr. and Mrs. Monniche's introduc-
tion to the Volcan area of Chiriqui
Province came after he'd suffered
four malaria attacks and his doctor
recommended the cool climate of
Boquete. Monniche liked hunting and
fishing, so a prospective States' trip
was cancelled and off they went.
In those days there were no roads
and such a trip meant a 7-day voyage
by coastwise steamer which stopped
at every port. If caught by the tide,
the steamer and passengers waited
12 hours or more to load or unload
Land in the Chiriqui region was
free to those who cleared and claimed
it. Those who owned land sold it for
small fees. Mrs. Monniche was the
first to hear of attractive land for sale.
Her husband was interested and
before anyone could say "coffee
bean," the Panama Canal engineer
was the owner of pasture land and
coffee plantations 6 miles above
Boquete, up a 2,000-foot climb, over

a narrow trail through virgin forest.
Thereafter the Monniches' vaca-
tions were spent in the Volcan region
of Panama. Their home was hand-
made of Spanish cedar, with planks
17 feet long and 2 inches thick. In
fact, all the buildings on the property
and all units of the finca were
Thus it was that a Virginia girl came
to Panama's virgin forestland and
made a home, discovering "how im-
portant a pioneer woman was to
pioneer man." She learned to cook
on a four-hole wood-burning stove,
and her husband started his coffee
seed bed in January 1911, "just to
keep Pancho (an employee) busy."
Tollef Monniche built all his own
coffee machinery and was the first in
Panama to export coffee, with Ger-
many the first customer country.
In 1922 he left Panama Canal
service and went to Boquete to reside.
They lived on the plantation 35 years
and then, because of his illness, went
to the United States. Since the death
of her husband, Austin, Tex., has
been Mrs. Monniche's home.

Dos barcos gemelos de la Linea Italiana que Ilevan nombres de milsicos se cruzaron en un raro encuentro diurno
en el Canal de Panama. Son el "Verdi", en primer piano, rumbo a NApoles por la via de Cartagena, Curazao y
La Guaira, y el "Rossini", en viaje al sur hacia la costa occidental de la America del Sur. Son dos de tres barcos de
pasajeros de la Linea Italiana en este servicio que pasan por el Canal de PanamA mAs o menos cada 25 dias.
El tercero es el "Donizetti". Los tres fueron puestos en el servicio de Italia a la costa occidental de America del Sur
en 1963, reemplazando al "Marco Polo", "Am6rico Vespucio" y "A. Usodimare".

Gente en la Noticia


Darnley Foster, es operario de teletipo en la caseta de control de las Esclusas
de Miraflores. El 31 de enero cumplirA 31 afios de trabajar con el Canal de
PanamA. Vive en la poblaci6n de Pedro Miguel en uni6n de su esposa Marga-
rita FernAndez de Foster, con la que ya llcva 28 afios de casado. Dios ha
bendecido su uni6n con seis hijos. El mayor, Darnley, Jr., vive en Bocas del
Toro, donde tiene una buena posici6n. La menor se llama Melinda y tiene 18
afios de edad. Se gradu6 el afio pasado en la Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso,
sirvi6 como ayudante estudiantil durante las l1timas vacaciones de verano
y acaba de finalizar con much 6xito un curso para operarias de equipo I.B.M.
El Sr. Foster curs6 hasta el Octavo Grado en la escuela de la vieja poblaci6n
de Red Tank. Pero durante toda su vida, siempre ha deseado superarse. Por
eso, siempre se encuentra leyendo o estudiando algo, o aprendiendo un oficio
nuevo. Cuando era muchacho, decidi6 un dia aprender el oficio de sastre.
"JamAs me hubiera imaginado lo que me iba a servir", dice el Sr. Foster, "me
he ganado muy buenos camarones y en la casa no gasto un centavo en ropa
mia". Orgullosamente muestra la ropa que Ileva puesta y dice: "Todo esto lo
hice yo mismo". Dice que su trabajo es sumamente interesante, pues a media
que va recibiendo los informes por el teletipo, va dAndose cuenta de la ruta
que van siguiendo los barcos y del lugar exact del Canal donde se encuentran.
"Es fascinante ver", dice, "c6mo el Control de TrAfico Maritimo dirige el
flujo de enormes barcos en todo moment, a travis de todo el Canal". De sus
jefes y compafieros de trabajo dice que son magnificas personas y que da gusto
trabajar en la caseta de control. Recuerda muy especialmente, una mafiana
de 1963 en que estando de turno, lleg6 la Reina de Inglaterra, Isabel II, a
vista la torre de control. "Bella y majestuosa, y a la vez, sumamente sencilla,
daba la impresi6n a primera vista, de ser una reina", dice recordando ese dia.

Arsenio Isidoro Morales es mensajero
de la Divisi6n de Servicios Adminis-
trativos, trabaja en el Edificio de
Administraci6n en Balboa Heights,
y es sumamente apreciado por todas
las personas que tienen que tratar con
6l, debido a que es muy servicial
y atento. Naci6 en PanamA, el 14 de
diciembre de 1939 y cuando joven,
vivi6 en la Zona del Canal. Su escuela
primaria la hizo en la Escuela de
Santa Cruz y la superior en la Escuela
Secundaria de Paraiso, donde se gra-
du6. En la actualidad reside en la sec-
ci6n de San Francisco de la Caleta.
Vive en uni6n de su esposa Anita
Smith de Morales, con la que tiene
cinco hijos. Son ellos: Xenia Maritza,
- de 8 afnos. que asiste al segundo grado
de la Escuela Belisario Porras; Ricar-
do Alberto, de 6 afios, que entrara a
la escuela el afio entrante; Luisa Ver6-
nica, de 4 afios; Angela Elisa, de 2, y
Fernando Enrique, de apenas 5 me-
ses. Estos tres iltimos son los que
mantienen a la mamA ocupada durante
todo el dia. De sus hijos dice el Sr.
Morales que le gustan los varoncitos
\ porque espera que algin dia sean algo
grande en PanamA, pero que las mu-
fercitas tambien le gustan porque se
las puede acariciar mAs y son las que
de verdad le brindan compafiia a uno
en la casa. Es cat6lico y asiste a la
Iglesia de San Francisco de la Caleta,
pero dice que la iglesia mAs bella de
PanamA es la del Colegio Javier. Antes
de emplearse con el Canal de PanamA,
trabaj6 con diferentes compaiiias de
construcci6n en la Zona del Canal,
especializAndose en trabajos de techo
y de pintura. Fue jugador professional
de beisbol y le toc6 jugar en todos los
estadios de la Republica de PanamA.

El Sr. y la Sra. Monniche vinieron
a conocer el area de El VolcAn, en
la Provincia de Chiriqui, despu6s que

y su doctor le recomendara el fresco

cancel un viaje a los Estados Unidos
y se dirigi6 a las montafias chiricanas.
En aquellos dias no habia carrete-
ras y tal viaje significaba 7 dias a
bordo de un vaporcito de cabotaje
que paraba en cada puerto. Si la
marea no era favorable, barco y pasa-
jeros esperaban 12 horas para cargar
o descargar.
En aquellos tiempos se le daba
tierras en Chiriqui a los que las des-
montaran y reclamaran. Los que po-
seian terrenos, los vendian a bajo
