Pitcairn's


Santa Gets

Assist Here
It will be a merry Christmas this
year for the residents of Pitcairn
Island, that remote spot in the South
Pacific made famous as the home
of the descendants of the Bounty
mutineers.
Through the combined efforts of
the employees of the Cristobal Post
Office and the agents for two British
shipping companies in Cristobal, two
shipments of Christmas mail are on
their way. One should arrive at t
Pitcairn before Christmas and the
second either on or shortly after
December 25.
Mail stops at Pitcairn are a once-in-
a-while thing for the New Zealand
Shipping Co., represented here by
Norton Lilly, and the Shaw Savill .
& Albion Line, whose agents are .. ''

islanders over the years has led to a:
number of unusual situations. The
local postal workers have helped the
islanders obtain such things as razor
blades and toothpaste and on one
occasion, a Cristobal postmaster
supervised the forwarding of a heavy
iron coal burning cook stove.
And then there was the time that
they arranged through local agents for
the passage for a bride-to-be and her
parents to travel from New York to
Pitcairn where the bride was to marry
a member of the well-known Christian
family, which accounts for a big seg-
ment of the inhabitants of the island.


In Appreciation
The Canal Zone Chapter, Amer-
ican Red Cross, expresses its ap-
preciation to all those who
responded so generously to the re-
quest for donations for the victims
of the recent floods in Panama.
Community residents also served
many hours in gathering, sorting
and packing the supplies. The
efforts of many helped to relieve
the suffering of those who lost
everything in the disaster.

AS OF JAN. 1

Annuities

And Retiree

Benefits Up
An increase in the October cost-of-
living index announced last week
means that annuities of retired Federal
employees and survivors now on the
Civil Service Retirement rolls will be
increased by 3.9 percent.
Federal employees who retire on or
before December 30 also receive this
COL increase plus a 1 percent in-
crease stemming from a 1962 law
increasing annuities on a sliding scale.
The increased monthly benefits for
those who retire in 1966 will be effec-
tive January 1 (payable February 1)
for Civil Service retirees and sur-
vivors. Granting of the increases is
automatic, and there is no need to
write the Civil Service Commission to
establish qualification.

little towns along the way. She was
most fascinated by La Chorrera which
she says resembles the sun-baked sets
of old movies about the U.S. South-

rapid changing of La Chorrera from
a small colonial village of thatched
huts into an agricultural center with
its demonstration and training center
and sanitation projects.

Panama's typical costumes-the hand-

the gold jewelry which completes the
costume, and the molass" which she

Gets High School

Diploma After

Wait of 45 Years
A Panama Railroad engineer who
waited more than 45 years to get his
high school diploma, and his wife,
who was the first woman to be em-
ployed in the Cristobal Port Cap-
tain's office, left the Isthmus recently
to make their home in Texas.
They are Harold E. Chambers,
former Panama Railroad locomotive
engineer and Mrs. Clara Chambers,
former Supervisory Administrative
Service Assistant for the Cristobal
Port Captain. He retired in December
1965 and she retired last month.
A native of Nashville, Ill., Cham-
bers left school when he was 14 years
old and went into the railroad busi-
ness. He came to the Isthmus in 1936
to work for the Panama Railroad.
After his retirement, he turned
scholar and did so well that in May
of this year, he succeeded in passing
examinations qualifying him for a
high school diploma. He intends to
continue his studies on a college level
in the United States.
Mrs. Chambers, who feels she has
done her bit to promote equal rights
for women, is a member of a well-
known Canal Zone family. She started

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


December 2, 1966


International

Friends Circle

To Meet Dec. 5
The Circle of International Friends
extends a welcome to all Canal Zone
residents who would like to join the
group to attend the next meeting
December 5. For further information
call Mrs. Winifred Deaver, 2-1768;
Mrs. Ligia De Armas, Panama 4-1630;
or Miss Edna de la Guardia, Panama
5-0523 (days) or 5-5608 (evenings).
Founded by Panamanians, United
States citizens and foreign residents
on the Isthmus, the circle promotes
understanding and friendship through
cultural and social activities. Mario
Fonseca is president. There are 140
members.
The group made a 4-day trip to
Chiriqui Province and toured places
of interest such as David, Boquete,
Volcan, and Cerro Punta. Among the
38 who went on the trip were several
Canal Zone School faculty members,
Gorgas Hospital doctors and members
of the military and their families.
Prominent Chiricanos met the group
at the airport and they were extended
a cordial and generous reception at
all the places they visited.
On their departure, Albert Sitton,
Governor of Chiriqui Province-,
treated them to a typical Panamanian
meal. The Governor, expressing the
traditional hospitality of the Chirica-
nos said he hoped more Canal Zone
residents will join the group on the
next trip to Chiriqui, between Christ-
mas and New Years, when the Gov-
ernor will host a barbecue in honor
of the visitors.


Pittsburgh Puts

Luther Quinn on

Majors Roster
The Pittsburgh Pirates have pur-
chased Luther Quinn's minor league
contract and placed him on their major
league roster.
Quinn is a graduate of Balboa High
School, where he lettered 3 years in
baseball and basketball (averaged 19
points per game), and 2 years in track
(a record-holder in the hurdles).
His baseball statistics included a
.314 batting average and 11 home
runs.
In his first year in the minors Lou's
batting average was .298. He led his
team in base hits, total bases, triples,
and home runs-and played second
base like a major leaguer.
This season he was known as the
hottest bat in the western league. His
batting average was .353.
Being a second year man, Quinn
would have been up for the major
league draft next season. To keep
another team from buying his con-
tract the Pirates have placed his name
on their Major League Roster.
Quinn played in the Panama pro
baseball league last year on the Panalit
team and this year is tentatively slated
to play on the Cerveza Balboa team.


Flower Arranging

Art To Be Shown
The delicate art of Japanese flower
arranging will be demonstrated at the
Canal Zone College Club meeting in
the Roosevelt Room of the Tivoli
Guest House, at 3:30 p.m., Monday.
Two arrangements will be made by
Mrs. Theodore Lujan, one in the old
tradition and one more modern. She
will explain the techniques of the
arrangements as she creates them.
Mrs. Lujan learned the art of
flower arranging from her mother, a
teacher in the Ikenoho School. Later
she also studied with the Soegetesse
School. Mrs. Lujan, a native of Japan,
also has lived in Taiwan and the
United States. She has been living in
Panama recently with her husband
and four children.
