There's an Old Saw . .

There's a saying about the pitfalls
of being a lender or a borrower.
But it wouldn't apply to old friends
like Frank A. Castles, Superinten-

William J. Nickisher, of the Indus-
trial Division, who is retiring and
leaving the Canal Zone in June.
Castles and Nickisher have had an
old saw between them for the past
19 years. Castles borrowed it from
Nickisher in 1948 when the Castles
were neighbors of the Nickishers in
a 12-family house in Diablo.
Castles used it to cut the Easter

Corozal Hospital Plans Open House

During Mental Health Week May 1-7
With the approach of Mental The first part of Sunday afternoon

Health Week, May 1-7, the staff of
Corozal Hospital is planning another
interesting and informative Open
Sunday, May 7, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Corozal Hospital will be open and
all persons on the Isthmus are ex-
tended an invitation to take a few
minutes for a visit.
The great difference between the
average person's ideas of a Mental
Health Care facility and the actual
operation make it imperative that
modern health-care hospitals bridge
the gap of misunderstanding. This
was the intense desire of President
John F. Kennedy, and his recommen-
dations helped open such programs
as Open Houses.
The desire of Corozal Hospital is
to attempt to bridge this gap in knowl-
edge by demonstrating the latest and
most modern treatment techniques,
to show the progress made by patients
undergoing new treatment programs,
and to increase overall awareness of
the various community resources for
the emotionally disturbed.

will be devoted to films of a type
which will interest the average per-
son who wishes to know more about
what happens before, during, and
after a mental illness. This will be
from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
From 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. a demon-
stration of psychodrama will take
place under the direction of Dr. Fred
Evora. Psychodrama, reduced to its
simplest form, is spontaneous acting
with the participants having been
given a definite situation.
Following this will be a tour for
all who wish to see the Corozal
Hospital facilities.
There also will be a panel discus-
sion on the topic "This Youthful
Generation: Problems and Praise," at
7:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 2. Panel
members will be representatives from
psychiatry, religion, and education.
This discussion is open to all who
wish to attend, especially the youth
of the Canal Zone. An open question
and answer period will follow the
panel discussion.

ham in two pieces and it worked so
efficiently that it never found its way
home. Not until recently, anyway.
It finally was placed (all gift
wrapped) in the hands of its rightful
owner at the Nickisher retirement
The box containing the saw had an
inscription saying that during the time
that the Castles family had possession
of the saw, it had been used to cut:
31 hams, 2 table tops, 1 finger, and
4 2 x 4's.
The message added that the saw
has many more years of faithful
service and urged Nickisher to be
kind to it, since it had always been
treated as a pet.

Judge Crowe

TV Speaker

For Law Day
Judge Guthrie F. Crowe of the
Federal District Court will speak for
a Law Day USA program on SCN-
TV at 7:30 p.m., Monday.
His talk will be followed by the
showing of a film, "A Free People,"
which is a musical portrayal of the
search for freedom by the people
of the United States since the
Revolutionary War.
Law Day ceremonies also will be
held on both sides of the Isthmus at
9 a.m. Monday, May 1, the 10th
anniversary of Law Day USA.
Woodrow De Castro, a member of
the Canal Zone Bar Association, will
speak at the ceremonies in the U.S.
District Court courtroom at Ancon.
Engelbert J. Berger, an attorney
engaged in private practice in the
Canal Zone and also a bar association
member, will speak at the same hour
in Magistrate's Court in Cristobal.
To stress the thesis of rights and
duties of the individual implied in the
concept of the "Rule of Law," rather
than the totalitarian "Rule of Might,"
the Canal Zone Bar Association and
Federal Bar Association are cooperat-
ing to provide lawyers to visit
between 55 and 60 classes in
secondary schools which are study-
ing U.S. Government and related


Traffic at Peak,

Transit Time Cut

1 N
IL V3 --t jl

With April traffic through the Pan-
ama Canal well on its way to topping
the all-time record set in March,
Gov. W. P. Leber praised all per-
sonnel concerned for "a really out-
standing performance" in handling
an average of 40.8 ships a day during
the first 3 weeks of the month.
"The fact that this heavy traffic
was handled safely and that the aver-
age time in Canal Zone waters ac-
tually was reduced during this period
is a great tribute to our operating
people," the Governor said.
Special praise went to Marine
Bureau personnel in the Navigation,
Locks, and Industrial Divisions and
to personnel of the Engineering and
Construction Bureau's Dredging Di-
vision. Average time in Canal Zone
waters was reduced to 14 hours de-
spite the heavier traffic. Average time
in March, when transits were at 37.5
a day, was 14.4 hours.

"The efficiency of our operation has

College Growth

Expansion Work
Canal Zone College's new library,
which is nearing completion, will in-
corporate greater size, more modern
design and several facilities entirely
new to the college's library system.
The 11,000 square foot, air condi-
tioned structure is being built by the
Dillon Construction Co., which ex-
pects the project to be finished by
Expansion of the library facilities
was necessary to comply with stand-
ards prescribed by the American
Library Association and Middle States
Accreditation Association which have
taken note of the college's growth.
The library had 2,000 volumes in
1963 and now has 11,000-more than
there is space for in the present build-
ing. The new library will hold up to
30,000 volumes with ease.
From one full-time professional
librarian in 1963, the college library
system has advanced to two full-time
professional librarians, one library
technician and seven student assist-
ants. The annual budget of funds
spent on new books is now $20,000,
or five times what it was 4 years ago.
The new library will have seating
space for 150 persons compared with
only about 50 in the present library.
The main room will have a carpeted
seating area of 128 study booths for
students to study individually.
Included in the new library will
be a number of specialized rooms

By Emily J. Price
Alistair MacLean is well known
for his successful adventure novels.
His new one is called When Eight
Bells Toll and takes place in the
rugged islands off the coast of Scot-
land. Here a British Secret Service
agent tries to solve the disappearance
of several ships carrying valuable
cargoes. The chase takes him over
and under a good deal of rough
water, and produces an exciting and
satisfying story.
Lord Byron said of himself, "I am
such a strange melange of good and
evil that I find it difficult to describe
myself." The latest attempt to solve
the Byron enigma is The Absorbing
Fire, a novel by F. W. Kenyon. It
does not discuss Byron as a major
poet, but deals with his life and loves
from his lonely childhood through the
dazzling years of success in London,
then the scandal and his departure
from England to the final heroism
at Missolonghi. The book is well re-
searched and much of the dialogue
is quoted from letters and diaries of
the time. The novel reads smoothly
and makes a plausible story of the
Byron mystery.
Georgette Heyer has never been in
better form than in Black Sheep, a
comic novel of Regency England.
The heroine is a sedate maiden lady
of 28 who undertakes to save her
young niece from a "ramshackle

Attention Parents: About Nursery School

The question of whether or not to
send your child to a nursery school
arises toward the end of the third
year. While some youngsters are not
ready to take this step, others are
quite independent and ready at this
age to share attention and activities
with other children. If your child falls
within the second group, the nursery
school may be the answer for you and
The Pedro Miguel and the Rain-
bow City Child Nurseries provide
full-time supervision for children from
3 to 5 years of age. These nursery
centers are run by a Board of Direc-
tors comprised of representatives of
community groups. They are an
answer to a long felt need in these
communities. The Social Service Staff
for Latin American Communities pro-
vides technical assistance, and super-
vises both centers. Under the direction
of trained teachers, friendly and agree-
able volunteers, trained for this pur-
pose, help to keep youngsters happily

May 5 Opening

Night for Guild's

"Serious Comedy"

Set construction work is nearly
finished, the last brushfuls of paint
are being applied, final costume fit-
tings are being held, and the ticket
sale will open Monday night for the
Theatre Guild's presentation of "The
Complaisant Lover" at the Ancon
Opening night will be May 5 for
this "serious comedy with an adult
theme," directed by H. Loring White,
a member of the Theatre Guild's
Board of Governors and a history
teacher at Canal Zone College.
Director White is familiar with the
theater from both sides of the foot-
lights. He made his stage debut at
the age of 11 when he appeared in
"Christmas With The Maloneys."
He was president of his high school
drama club and continued his interest
in drama at the University of Con-
necticut. Following graduation, he
was a member of the high school
faculty in Sidney, Nebr., where he
directed high school drama. The last
group he directed won the Nebraska
State one-act play contest in 1956,
just before he came to the Isthmus.
He was associated with Don Mus-
selman in the presentation of the
Shakespeare Festival at the Canal
Zone College and in the Tivoli pag-
eant in 1957. In that pageant he
enacted the role of Captain Rousseau.
An active member of the Theatre
Guild since he has been on the Isth-
mus, he appeared in "Death Of A
Salesman," "Solid Gold Cadillac,"
"J. B.," starred in "Ballad Of The
Sad Cafe," and was seen in the role
of the Bishop of York in the
Theatre Guild's recent presentation
of "Becket."
He scored a success with direction
of readings of "Streetcar Named
Desire" at Surfside Theater and the
Ancon Playhouse. Coincidentally the
stars in the latter production are the
stars in "The Complaisant Lover."

Keep Smallpox


Up to Date!

Health authorities in the Canal
Zone urge that smallpox vaccinations
be kept up to date.
During recent weeks reports have
been received of smallpox epidemics
in India. So far, three known cases
have been imported into Europe as
a result of exposure in India. In the
United States, 15 persons are being
kept under medical surveillance due
to contact with the European cases.
To maintain a high level of immu-
nity smallpox vaccinations should be
repeated once every 3 years. The
Canal Zone Code also requires that
all persons living and working in the
Canal Zone be vaccinated for small-
pox every 3 years.
Smallpox can be prevented by
vaccination, available at Local Com-
munity Health Centers free of charge.
Since no medication is available
against this dread disease, health offi-
cials urge that you get your vaccina-
tion up to date-now.

The Cape

One of the smallest oceangoing
yachts to pass through the Canal re-
cently was the 21-foot sloop Pioneer
which was on its way around the
world with three Japanese university
students aboard.
The sloop arrived in Cristobal April
7 from Trinidad and came through
the Canal to Balboa where it re-
mained until April 16 to take on
supplies and make preparations for
the trip to the Galapagos Islands.
According to a news report from
Trinidad, the Japanese sloop sailed
into Trinidad after a 28-day journey
across the Atlantic Ocean from the
Canary Islands. The crew put the
Pioneer into drydock for 3 weeks for
repairs before leaving for Kingston,
Jamaica, and the Panama Canal. The
report said they did not make the trip
all the way from Japan to the Canary
Islands. They were picked up by a
Japanese ship and given a lift around
the Cape of Good Hope. Sloop and

Promedio de Barcos

Establece una Marca

Con el trifico del mes de abril a
trav6s del Canal de Panama, muy
bien encaminado a pasar sobre la
marca de todos los tiempos estable-
cida en marzo, el Gobernador W. P.
Leber alab6 a todo el personal a
cargo del trinsito de las naves por un
"sobresaliente. desempefio", al mane-
jar un promedio de 40.8 naves diarias
durante las 3 primeras semanas del
"El hecho de que este pesado tra-
fico haya sido manejado seguramente
y que el promedio de tiempo en aguas
del Canal haya sido reducido durante
este period es un gran tribute a
nuestro personal de operaciones", dijo
el Gobernador.
Menci6n especial le dedic6 al per-
sonal de la Direcci6n de Marina, a las
divisions de Navegaci6n y de Esclu-
sas, y al de la Divisi6n Industrial, lo

mismo que al personal de la Divisi6n
de Dragas de la Direcci6n de Inge-
nieria y Construcci6n. El promedio
de tiempo pasado por las naves en
aguas del Canal fue reducido a 14
horas, a pesar del intense trafico. El
tiempo promedio en marzo, cuando
los trinsitos fueron de 37.5 naves
diarias, fue de 14.4 horas.
"La eficiencia de nuestra operaci6n
ha sido subrayada dramAticamente
por el hecho de que hemos podido
transitar mas naves en menos tiempo
que nunca", dijo el Gobernador.
"Ello debe ser fuente de gran orgullo
y satisfacci6n, no s61o para el perso-
nal de operaciones, sino para los miles
de hombres y mujeres que trabajan
para el Canal en una gran variedad
de actividades de apoyo".

avanzado hasta contar con dos biblio-
tecarios profesionales de tiempo com-
pleto, un tecnico bibliotecario y siete
ayudantes estudiantiles. El presupues-
to annual para la libros es

A Vacunarse Todos

Contra la Viruela
Las autoridades de salubridad de
la Zona del Canal exhortan a los resi-
dentes a que mantengan al dia sus
vacunas contra la viruela.
Hace pocas semanas se recibieron
informes sobre epidemias de viruela
en la India. Hasta ahora, hay tres
casos conocidos en Europa de perso-
nas que se contagiaron en la India.
En los Estados Unidos, 15 personas
se mantienen bajo vigilancia m6dica
debido al contact que tuvieron con
los casos europeos.
Para mantener un alto nivel de in-
munidad, las vacunas contra ]a virue-
la deben repetirse una vez cada 3
afios. El c6digo de la Zona del Canal
tambi6n dice que todas las personas
que vivan o trabajen en ]a Zona del
Canal deben vacunarse contra la
viruela cada 3 afios.
La viruela puede evitarse con la
vacuna, que se consigue en forma
gratis en los centros locales de salu-
bridad. No existiendo ningfin remedio
eficaz contra esta terrible enferme-
dad, las autoridades de salubridad le
piden a usted que ponga su vacuna
al dia, ahora mismo.

Agard recibi6 ese reconocimiento
por su actitud alerta que evit6 un

fallas en las maquinas.
Cuando el buque pesquero se acer-
