The Telephone Hour: The cast of the musical comedy "Bye, Bye Birdie" gives a graphic demonstration of what
happens in any typical American community (in this case Sweet Apple, Ohio) when a piece of important news
breaks in the teenage set. Every phone in town was tied up-natch. This sparkling musical is being produced by
the Canal Zone College Theatre under the direction 4;f David Lommen with Carl Chapman as musical director
and Vera Bomford as choreographer. Performances are scheduled fer April 19, 20, 21, and 22 at the Canal Zone
College auditorium. For reservations call Balboa 2380 or Balboa 2676 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

For those unable to attend the
Sing-Out '67 performance at
8 p.m., April 14 at Balboa Stadi-
um, there will be an abbreviated
show at 3 p.m., the same day
in the Administration Building

New and revised motorboat regu-
lations are now in print and available

tion for a motorboat operator's license.
Boat owners are reminded that a
copy of these regulations must be
carried on their boats at all times.
They may be obtained at the office
of the Port Captains on either the
Pacific or Atlantic side during regular
working hours.

Col. A. C. Sutton, Jr., Field Direc-
tor of the Atlantic-Pacific Interoceanic

ing of the Isthmian Historical Society.
The meeting will be held 7:30 p.m.

trated with slides showing the areas
in which the sea level canal studies
are in progress.

Trash, Garbage

Not the Same

Webster's Third New International
Dictionary says:
"Trash is something worth little or
nothing such as junk, or rubbish."
"Garbage is refuse resulting from
preparation of cooking and dispensing
of food-scraps."
The Community Services Division
of the Supply and Community Serv-
ice Bureau says-"there are some
residents of the Canal Zone who don't
know the difference."
In order to simplify the task of
those who collect the garbage and
trash in the Canal Zone and to reduce
the danger of breeding flies, residents
are urged to put trash in the trash
barrels and garbage in garbage cans.
It would make the Grounds Branch
people even happier if residents would
put wet garbage in paperbags, milk
cartons, or wrap it in newspapers
and take it out each night or oftener
to the garbage cans provided by
Community Services near quarters
Garbage is collected every other
day by garbage trucks. Trash is
collected several times a week by
trash trucks. Garbage in trash cans
complicates the lives of the trash col-
lectors, who take trash to a different
dumping area than garbage, which is

Refuse resulting from cleaning fish
or game should be wrapped securely,
placed in the garbage can and covered
with the lid. Tin cans anrd glass jars
with the remains of food also should
go into the garbage can. The main
problem is to keep flies from breed-
ing. That means taking out the gar-
bage daily and keeping clean garbage
cans. Under no circumstances should
household garbage cans be kept in
public hallways.
Grounds people also warn residents
of the dangers of throwing old bottles
containing medicine in trash or gar-
bage. These bottles should be emptied
into the toilet and the containers
thrown into trash cans. Pills and med-
icine thrown out in old bottles, found
in the disposal cans by garbage
and trash men from time to time, are
potentially as dangerous as live
Jewelry, silver, and other valuables
seldom appear in trash and garbage
cans. But there is a record of one
Panama Canal employee who lost an
important paper in the office waste-
basket and later located it at the Red
Tank dump with the assistance of the
trash men, who knew exactly where
trash from that particular building
was dumped.

Gorgas Red Cross
Will Hear Talk
Dr. R. L. Wenninger will give an
illustrated talk entitled "Jungle Med-
S "t. icine" at the April meeting of the
Gorgas Hospital Red Cross volun-
teers. The meeting is scheduled for
Monday April 10, at 1:30 p.m. in
the Medical Conference Room, see-
ond floor Section "0" (old building)
of the hospital.
During the month of March,
.,77 adult volunteers, and 21 youth
S volunteers served a grand total of
2,454 hours at Gorgas Hospital.

"Friends, Romans, countrymen,
lend me your ears; I come to bury
Caesar, not to praise him . ."
Recognize that speech? Of course
you do-but I bet you don't know the
real reason Caesar was killed? Now,
however, the truth can be told.
Caesar was murdered by Brutus not
for political reasons, but because he
had a secret menu, and Brutus and
the other Seinators were green with
jealousy because Caesar gave the
most successful orgies in Rome. For
years, Brutus had been trying to get
his hands on this secret menu, but
Caesar was no fool-he held on to it
like crazy.
Of course the outcome of this is
history; everyone ganged up on
Caesar and he was murdered for the

What is this secret menu that

caused an Emperor to be murdered,
and his best friend to murder him?
By a great stroke of luck, the Tivoli
Guest House has the original menu
and will present it to the public at the
Monday Night Buffet on April 10.
The menu features Caesar's chicken
tetrazzini, Senator's spaghetti with
meat sauce, Italian salad, garlic bread,
relish tray, assorted pastries, and
The Tivoli does as Rome did-we
have 3 seatings, at 5:30, 6:30, and
7:30 p.m. Call 2-2111 for reserva-
tions. Adults, $1.50; children, $1.

Footnote to history: Did Brutus have
instant success with Caesar's Italian
menu? NO! Which goes to
prove. . Crime does not pay ...
heh, heh, heh.

Do you enjoy a convivial gathering
of good friends, good food, and good
surroundings? Of Course you do; who
doesn't? If you come to the Tivoli
Sunday Brunch on April 9, you will
have all three.
The good friends will be yours,
and the good food will be ours:
assorted fruit and juice trays, hot
cakes with syrup and honey, ham
omelet, creamed eggs on toast, hashed
brown potatoes, grilled sausage,
grilled bacon, assorted dry cereals,
buttered toast, cinnamon toast, jam,
jelly, pineapple muffins, Danish pas-
tries, coffee, tea, and milk.
And the good surroundings? The
Roosevelt Room, of course, serving
the Brunch from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Adults, $1.35; children, 95 cents.

The Walls of


When the big dining room at the
Camboa Penitentiary was painted last
October, it was suggested that some-
thing slightly different be done in the
way of decor.
Why not decorate the walls with
murals instead of the typical gray
usually found on prison walls? The big
dining room serves also as a school-
room for 6 hours each day, as a
recreation center in the evenings and
as a movie house on Friday nights
when the weekly tiovie is shbwn.
Soon after the decision was made
a tropical scene of fresh, brilliant
color was unfolding on one wall and
a beautiful mural extended the entire
length of the room. A talented inmate
copying the scene from a book
worked skillfully and diligently until
he was released on parole.
Fortunately another artistically tal-
ented inmate was able to take over
the unfinished mural and continued
paintings on the other three walls.
An impressive scene of the Last
Supper realistically depicts the human
emotional content of that famous
event. A ship in the deep fjords of
Norway with snow capped glaciers
decorates and soothingly cools another
once drab wall of the dining room.
A mural above the entrance of the
room extends a touch of Mexico with
its figures brightly clad in serapes,
sombreros, and shawls.

The Nickishers

To Be Honored
A retirement party in honor of Mr.
and Mrs. William J. Nickisher of
Balboa will be held at the American

mus May 4 and after visiting in
McKeesport, Pa., will make their
home in California.

By Emily J. Price
Franklin Russell describes himself
as an islomaniac-a man obsessed
by islands. In his book The Secret
Islands, he describes his escape from
a crowded island, Manhattan, to deso-
late islands in the Bay of Fundy and
off the coast of Newfoundland. Here
he thoughtfully studies the myriads
of wild birds and the few solitary
humans he encounters. A readable and
rather strange book, it will appeal to
nature lovers.
The Too Hot to Cook Book, by
Miriam Ungerer, is an informative
guide to keeping cool in the kitchen.
The emphasis is on salads, ready-to-
eat foods, and stove-top cookery.
There are tips on menu planning for
simple entertaining and advice on
stocking a summer cupboard with
thought for unexpected guests.
Jan Yoors as a boy did what many
boys merely dream of doing. He ran
away with Gypsies and for 10 years
travelled about Eastern Europe with
their horse caravans. In his book, The
Gypies, he describes his experience
in an affectionate tribute to the strange
race of people who befriended him.
The life of the Gypsies, seen from
within, is rigidly controlled by their
own laws and far more orderly than
legend reports it.
A new detective story by John
Creasey is The Executioners, which
features Superintendent West of Scot-
land Yard. He faces an unusual
problem; nine murderers who have
served their sentences are menaced
by fanatic opponents of the abolition
of capital punishment. This is fast-
moving and exciting and West pro-
vides some surprises.
Louis Auchincloss' new collection
of short stories, Tales of Manhattan,
is divided into three parts. "Memories
of an Auctioneer" contains five stories
about owners of work of art; "One
Chase Manhattan Plaza" reveals the
members of a distinguished law firm;
"The Matron" is a group of stories
about the women who rule New York

Panama Railroad engine crews have
reported that a number of motorists
have been taking a chance with a
Canal Zone version of Russian roulette
and have been trying to beat trains
through crossings fully protected by

The "Stop, Look, and Listen" warn-

Italian Night

At Balboa SC
The accent will be Italian tonight
at the Balboa Service Center when,
for the first time in the Service Cen-
ter's history, a spaghetti dinner, buffet
style, will be featured.
Regular patrons will probably blink
their eyes a few times when they
enter and find the usual bare tabletops
covered with checkered tablecloths,
in a reasonable facsimile of a little
dining room anywhere in Italy.
The buffet style spaghetti dinner
will be served from 5 to 7 p.m., and
will feature meat sauce, spaghetti,
tossed salad, garlic bread and choice
of tea, coffee or punch. The cost? Just
85 cents.
Italian night at the Balboa Service
Center is on a trial basis and is
planned for the first Friday of each

Las Faldas Cortas

Y los Accidentes

Benjamin Kinlay, cspecialista de
Seguridad britanico ha declarado que
las faldas muy cortas, y las piernas
bien formadas son un peligro para la
conducci6n segura.
"Una muchacha con piernas bonitas
y la falda de 12 centimetros arriba de
las rodillas pueden inducir a los con-
ductores a mirar a hurtadillas", decla-
r6 el expert. "Yo soy el primero en
admirar un par de piernas bonitas y
no quiero que se prohiba el uso de
faldas cortas, lo I nico que quiero y
recomiendo es que los conductores
las ignoren.

No hay que Confundir

La Broza con Bazofia

El Diccionario de la Real Academia
Espafiola dice:
"Broza es un con;unto de hojas,
ramas, cortezas y otros despojos de
las plantss.
"Bazofia es la mezela de sobras o
desechos de comidas".
La Division de Servicios Comu-
nales de la Direcci6n de Abastos y
Servicios Comunales dice: "existen
algunos residents de la Zona del
Canal que no conocen la diferencia".
Para simplificar la tarea de los
recolectores de basura en la Zona del
Canal y para reducir el peligro de
criaderos de moscas, se pide a los resi-
dentes que pongan las brozas y las
bazofias en sus respectivos tinacos.
Y serian todavia mas felices los
trabajadores del Ramo de Predios si
los residents pusieran las bazofias en
cartuchos plAsticos o encerados, car-
tones de leche, o las envolvieran en
peri6dicos y las pusieran fuera todas
las noches, o mes a menudo, en los
tinacos que tiene la Divisi6n de Ser-
vicios Comunales cerca de los edificios
de vivienda.
La bazofia se recolecta cada 2 dias
por medio de camiones. La broza se
recolecta varias veces a la semana
por medio de camiones especiales para
tal uso. La bazofia mezclada con la
broza complica la vida de los recolec-
tores de broza, que tienen que Ilevarla
a un Area diferente de descarga a la
de la bazofia, que se entierra.
El desecho que result de la lim-
pieza de un pescado o de una presa

deberia ser bien envuelto, colocarse
en el tinaco de la bazofia (garbage can)
y cubrirse con la tapadera. Los enva-
ses de lata y los frascos de vidrio con
residues de alimentos tambi6n deben
colocarse en el tinaco para bazofias.
El problema principal estriba en evi-
tar la reproducci6n de moscas. Eso se
consigue Ilevando la basura de bazo-
fias diarimnente afuera y mantenien-
do limpios los tinacos. Bajo ninguna
circustancia los envases de bazofias
dom6sticas deben permanecer en
corredores pfiblicos.
Los empleados de Predios tambien
aconsejan a los residents acerca del
peligro de tirar botellas viejas que
contengan medicines, en los tinacos
para brozas (trash) o para bazofias
(garbage). Estas botellas deben va-
ciarse en los inodoros y los envases
deben tirarse en los tinacos para
brozas (trash). Las pildoras y las me-
dicinas dejadas en botellas viejas son
potencialmente tan peligrosas como
una munici6n list para una descarga,
y las encuentran de vez en cuando
los recolectores de basura en los
Joyas, plata, y otros articulos de
valor raras veces aparecen en los
tinacos. Pero existe el caso de un
empleado del Canal de PanamA, quien
perdi6 un papel important en la
canasta de basura de la oficina y mas
tarde lo localiz6 en el basurero de
Red Tank con la ayuda de recolectores
de basura que sabian exactamente
donde habia sido vaciada la broza
proveniente de ese edificio.

Ismael Laguna Logro un Facil

Triunfo Sobre Vicente Rivas

Un fAcil triunfo por la via rpida

oportunidad por el titulo mundial de

Con Paisaies es Adornado

Comedor cle Penitenciaria

Cuando se pint6 el gran comedor
de la Penitenciaria de Gamboa en
octubre pasado, se sugiri6 que se
hiciera algo un poaquito diferente en
material de decoraci6n.
dPor qu6 no decorar las paredes con
murales, en lugar del tipico gris que
generalmente se usa en las paredes
de la prisi6n? El gran comedor tam-
bien hace las veces de sal6n de escae-
la durante 6 horas todos los dias, de
centro de recreaci6n en las noches
y de sala de cine los viernes en la
noche, dia en que se exhiben peliculas.
Inmediatamente despubs que se to-
m6 la decision, se depleg6 una escena
tropical de frescos y brillantes colors
sobre una pared, y un bello mural
cubri6 toda la longitud del cuarto. Un
recluso talentoso trabajaba habil y
diligentemente en la copia del paisaje
de un libro hasta que fue dejado en
libertad bajo palabra.

Afortunadamente otro artist y ta-
lentoso recluso fue capaz de seguir
el mural y continue pintando sobre
las otras tres paredes.
Una escena impresionante de la
Ultima Cena describe en formnna real
el contenido emotional y human de
ese famoso acontecimiento. Un barco
en los arrecifes de Noruega cubiertos
con una capa de nieve decora y refres-
ca otra pared gris parduzca del come-
dor. Un mural sobre la entrada del
cuarto le da un toque mexicano con
sus figures brillantemente vestidas con
sarapes, sombreros y chales.

La Repiblica Dominicana ha
firmado un convenio con el Fondo
Monetario Internacional, para po-
der disponer de la cantidad de
$6.600.000, a fin de pagar algunos
de sus compromises finacieros.
