4th Celebration

Plans Completed

A speech by Brig. Gen. Albert H.
Smith, Jr., USA, Director of Opera-
tions, U.S. Southern Command, will
highlight Fourth of July ceremonies
on the Pacific side of the Isthmus, the
committee in charge of arrangements
announced today.
Gov. W. P. Leber will speak on
the Atlantic side at ceremonies sched-
uled at the Margarita Elementary
School play area.
Plans on both sides have been com-
pleted, and the lineup of entertain-
ment and ceremony will provide a
full day of activities for young and
old alike.
First event of the morning on the
Pacific side is the Skydiving Exhibi-
tion. It will begin at 9:45 a.m. at the
Gaillard Highway end of Albrook
AFB runway. More than 20 jumpers
of the Pan American Sports Para-
chute Club will stage the exhibition,
with thrilling jumps from as high as
12,000 feet.
Then comes the big parade, which
will step off at 10:30 a.m. from the
area of Roosevelt and Balboa Roads.
A full contingent of military, civic
and fraternal groups, Boy Scouts and
Girls Scouts, plus several bands, will
participate. The march will be the
reverse of last year's route. It will
follow Balboa Road to Barnebey
Street, turning onto Gorgona Road
and ending at O'Connor Place.
Parade Marshal will be Capt.
Charles S. Moffet, Chief of Staff, U.S.
Naval Forces, Southern Command.
As the parade ends, a flyover of U.S.
Air Force planes will top off the
The reviewing stand for Pacific
side ceremonies will be at Goethals

Reminder Issued

On Declaration

Of Duty Items
Canal Zone employees and their
dependents returning to the United
States via the SS Cristobal on leave
are reminded that they must declare
to U.S. Customs all dutiable items.
This includes any such items which
are carried in the trunks of their
automobiles, as permitted by regula-
A pamphlet entitled "Customs
Hints for Returning U.S. Residents,"
which is published by the Bureau of
Customs, Treasury Department, gives
additional information such as re-
strictions on specific items, exemp-
tions, and rates of duty and tax on
imported items. This publication is
presented to SS Cristobal passengers
with their travel documents. Other
copies may be obtained aboard ship.
Canal Zone employees who are
U.S. citizens, and their dependents,
are considered to be returning res-
idents of the United States for cus-
toms purposes unless they present
satisfactory evidence to the customs
officer at the port of entry that they
have given up their residence in the
United States and have become bona
fide residents of another country.
A separate U.S. Customs brochure,
distributed by the Transportation
Branch, provides information con-
cerning only those who are being
repatriated to the United States and
are moving from the Isthmus, rather

Many Canal Employees Slated

To Compete in Fishing Tourney

A number of Panama Canal em-
ployees, many of them expert fisher-
men, will take part in the 15th annual
International Marlin and Sailfish
Tournament which opens officially
July 1. They will join 300 or more
contestants, including visitors from

Honey, I Wasn't Near the Club

A fast game of musical cars left
two Panama Canal employees limp
and another one without an alibi
this last weekend.
What turned out to be a comedy of
errors started innocently enough
when an employee at the Administra-
tion Building at Balboa Heights
borrowed the station wagon of
another employee Friday and pro-
maised to return it by Saturday night.
Things went as scheduled until
Saturday afternoon when the borrow-
ing employee (No. 1) decided to stop
by the American Legion Club before
driving the car back to the second
employee's house.
He parked the car in the parking
lot, pocketed the keys and proceeded
to join a few of his pals to enjoy the
sunshine and the beautiful view.
So far so good.
Then complications set in.
Everything would have worked out
as planned if the owner of the car
(No. 2), who had been downstairs at
the Yacht Club, hadn't emerged from
the building a short time after em-
ployee No. 1 entered. He missed his
friend entirely in the process.
Seeing his car parked near the club,
he made a mental note that his friend
meant to leave it there for him,
brought out his spare set of keys-
and drove home.

Meanwhile, employee No. 3, who
works for the Dredging Division-
who owns the same model, same
make, same color, and same year
station wagon-arrived at the club
and parked in the same parking
While he was inside enjoying the
sunshine and the view, employee
No. I emerged and climbed into the
car. Since it was about one chance
in 50,000 that the keys would fit, he
suspected nothing when they did.
So he drove the car home, planning
to return it the following day.
Came the dawn.
Employee No. 1 called employee
No. 2 to apologize for not returning
the car the night before. Employee
No. 2 said it was in front of his house.
Employee No. 1 said it was in front
of his. Both went outside to see who
was right. Both were.
The Canal Zone Police got into the
act about this time when the borrow-
ing employee called to see if a car
had been reported stolen.
The answer was yes.
The wife of the Dredging Division
employee (No. 3) had the last laugh.
She said her husband admitted
coming home carless. But he swore
he hadn't been near the American
Legion Club.

employees, the invitation to enter the

of employees will participate on Pan-

July 8 and continuing through
August 29.

Salvation Army

Benefit Dinner

Set for July 19
The Salvation Army is sponsoring
its annual maintenance appeal for
funds for its activities for the less
fortunate and lonely on the Pacific
side of the Isthmus in the Republic
of Panama.
The event will be a benefit dinner
at the Panama Hilton Hotel at 7:30
p.m., July 19, with President Marco
A. Robles as guest of honor.
Heading Canal Zone participation
will be Gov. W. P. Leber and
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt. Net proceeds
of the function, a $50 per couple
benefit, provide the main support for
this phase of the SA's activities.
Anyone wishing to assist in this
appeal to help provide for the
youth, the less fortunate, and the
blind in the Panama City area may
obtain tickets by calling the Salva-
tion Army, Panama 4-1545; Arthur
J. O'Leary, Balboa 4184; Richard
Erbe, Balboa 3431, or Thad Cham-
berlain, Balboa 4111.
(Continued on p. 4)

Sail Landed

Without Hook
Six Canal Zone fishernnmen had quite
a surprise when Charles Leaver
finally landed a 140-pound sailfish
aboard the Dredging Division launch
Careta after a 45-minute tussle with
the swaying catch.
Leaver, a wireman in the Electrical
Division, caught his first sailfish with-
out a hook! Bud Wallace, Thurmond
Napier, John Bing, John Mallia, and
Tommy Thompson were there to
witness the catch.
When the sail struck it made a
circular motion and the sword-like
beak apparently became entangled
with the leader wire. The part of the
leader wire with the hook attached
snapped off. The sailfish was landed
with only a hitch of leader wire
around the beak.
Leaver is having the sword-like
beak and the leader wire mounted as
evidence of a true fish story that
happened off Garachine Point near
the Perlas.




As heavy rains fell over most of
the Isthmus early this week, 2 of the
14 gates at Gatun Spillway were
opened for the first time this year.
The gates were opened at 3:18 p.m.,
Monday, and remained open until
1:20 a.m., Tuesday, a total of 10
It was one of the earliest rainy
season spillway operations at Gatun,
since the level of Gatun Lake seldom
reaches the point where water must
be spilled so early in the year. But
general rains had brought the lake
level from 86.34 to 86.55 in a 24-hour
Although the rainy season did not
start as early as it did in 1966, the
level of the lake did not fall below
85 feet during the recent dry season,
a level which was more than a foot
higher than it was during the
previous dry season. Curtailment of
hydroelectric power at Gatun mainly
was responsible for maintenance of
this level.
Shortly after the rains began the
last part of April, the level of Gatun
Lake began climbing back to its nor-
mal rainy season level of 86 feet.
During the past' 2 weeks, hydroelec-
tric power production has been used
to regulate the lake.
Spillway operation also became
necessary this week in order to main-
tain the lake at the desired height of
86.7 feet, which gives allowance for'
any flood which could follow excep-
tionally heavy rains in the Gatun
Lake watershed.
Meanwhile the Engineering and
Construction Bureau issued a warn-
ing that spillway operation might be
necessary at any time of day or night
at Catun and Madden Dams.
The warning said:
"During the next 6 months all
persons having occasion to be in the
area below Catun Spillway and in
the Chagres River below Madden
Dam are warned to be on the lookout
for a sudden increase in the height of
water and force of current.
"Warning sirens are sounded 15
minutes before initial spilling begins
and spilling may be increased there-
after without further warning. Due
to other noises the sirens may not be

COMMENDATION: A letter commending him for his presence of mind
and his professional skill in avoiding what could have been a serious marine
accident is presented Capt. L. M. Pascavage, Panama Canal pilot, left, by
Capt. Donald E. Dertien, USN, Marine Director. Also present was Capt.
Richard C. Sergeant, Balboa Port Captain, center. The incident occurred
May 26 when Captain Pascavage was proceeding northbound near Gatun
Locks as pilot aboard the "Union Defender." The SS "Nautilus," southbound,
just out of Gatun Locks, lost steering control and sheered to port across the
bow of the "Union Defender." By timely use of anchors and engines, Captain
Pascavage avoided a serious collision and brought the vessel to a stop parallel
to the west side of the channel without running aground in the 500-foot

Cards Needed for Medical Treatment

There have been several instances
recently when eligible persons have
presented themselves for treatment at
Canal Zone health facilities without
the necessary identification to show
eligibility for treatment. Except in
cases of extreme emergency, such
identification is required.
In order to avoid unnecessary delay
in receiving treatment at the hos-

pitals, Health Bureau officials advise,
all persons who are authorized med-
ical care and treatment should insure
that they and their dependents have
valid identification c ards in their
possession at all times. These cards
must be presented before patients can
be admitted to the hospital or receive
outpatient treatment.

Proof Sets
Coin collectors in Panama and the
Canal Zone are currently receiving
Panama 1966 six-coin Proof Sets
which they ordered last year from
Paramount International Coin Corp.
of Dayton, Ohio.
The mintage of the 12,701 Proof
Sets was done at the San Francisco
Assay Office foi the Panama Govern-
ment and are the first Proof Sets the
U.S. Government has ever struck for
a foreign country. They are the first
Proof Sets struck in the San Francisco
Mint for any country including the
United States. This work has been
done before only in the Philadelphia
The Panama Proof Sets contain 1
silver balboa; a silver-clad base silver
'/2 balboa; a cupronickel-clad (alloy
of copper and nickel) copper V and
10th balboa; a cupronickel 5 centesi-
mos and bronze 1 cent6simo. Espe-
cially processed for collectors, and
according to United States coinage
standards, the coins were struck with
a polished die to give them a mirror-
like finish.
The issue value of a Proof Set at
the Mint is $15. Face value is $1.91.
Striking of the' Panama Proof Sets
was the third time within the past
months that the Bureau of Mint has
accommodated Panama. In February
1966, it struck 7,180,000 25-centesi-
mo coins for Panama at the San Fran-
cisco Assay Office, and 260,000 of
the same coins in March. This was
the first time the U.S. Mint struck
coins for a foreign government since
1963 when it stopped the service to
devote its facilities to U.S. coinage.

Veteran of Fire Division,

Lt. Albin Retiring Soon

Lt. Edward E. Albin of the Panama
Canal Fire Division would not be
around to retire in a few weeks if it
hadn't been for two extraordinary
people on the Isthmus in 1906.
Walter H. Albin, a Kansas cowboy
better known as "Tex," left a guard
job at the New Orleans Exposition
to join the Police Department of the
Isthmian Canal Commission. Eleanor
J. Smith, a nurse, had come to the
Isthmus in 1904 to work as a nurse
in the old Ancon Hospital.
A runaway team of horses was the
cause of the meeting of these two.
The horses, belonging to the Gov-
ernor's carriage, were frightened by
a flying newspaper and they bolted.
Tex, the cowboy-policeman, caught
the runaway horses and quieted them;
in doing so he cut his knee. The Fire
Department chief, who had observed
the incident and admired Tex Albin's
performance, asked him to join the
Fire Department where horses on
the fire engines often needed such
adroit handling.
Walter Albin remained in the Fire
Division until 1936 when he took off
his badge and bequeathed it to son
Edward. The badge, duly inscribed,
had been given to him by the Inter-
national Association of Firefighters
Local No. 13 at the time of his retire-
Eleanor Smith, known as "Bloody
Mary" because of all the slide and
dynamite explosion accident cases she
attended as chief operating-room
nurse, took care of the cut knee.
A few years later they were married.
In 1917, the Albins left for the United
States where both planned to join the
Army. When Albin was rejected by
the Army, they decided to return o
the Canal. But before doing so, they
went to New York City and adopted
twin boys, 6 years old and under-
developed. Naming the twins James


Many Boats Lost

Gasoline Fires
Many boats are lost each year due
to gasoline fires. In some cases great
explosions result causing deaths and
serious injuries along with loss of
This is not difficult to understand
when it is realized that the vapor
created by as little as /2 pint or 1 cup
of gasoline has the explosive power
of five sticks dynamite, says Joseph
Dargan, Pacific Power Squadron
Commander and member of the Na-
tional Safe Boating Week Committee.
When gasoline is being handled
on a boat, smoking must be forbidden.
Wipe up spills promptly, and don't
allow spilled gasoline to get below
decks. Allow for expansion when
filling tanks and keep fill caps tightly
fastened. Ventilate all enclosed spaces
and bilges after filling and before
starting the engine. Safe boating is

and Edward, they headed for the
It was apparent that the skinny
twins needed a considerable amount
of special attention to develop into
normal boys. Mother Albin took on
the task of nourishing the boys with
quantities of wholesome food while
father made it his business to develop
the boys through lots of physical
Tex Albin taught the boys boxing,
wrestling, and swimming. Soon the
puny twins developed into strong
healthy boys and were often the star
attraction on the community shows
held in the clubhouse on Saturday
nights. At 9, James won the "perfect
child" contest sponsored by Governor
and Mrs. Jay J. Morrow.
The twins became expert swimmers

"Fair Lady"


Next Week
Tryouts will be held at the Balboa
High School Auditorium July 3, 5,
6, and 7, each evening at 7:30 p.m.,
for the most spectacular musical
production ever to be staged on the
Isthmus-Alan Jay Lerner and Fred-
erick Loewe's "My Fair Lady".
"My Fair Lady" has been in the
planning stages for the past 6 months.
Now it will become a reality as actors,
singers, and dancers are selected for
the 38 coveted roles.
"My Fair Lady" has generated a
wave of excitement wherever it has
been staged, as it is doing on the
Isthmus of Panama. Since its opening
on Broadway on March 15, 1956, it
has earned $141 million for produc-
tions staged throughout the world
and from showings of its film versions.
During its New York run 3,750,000
people paid more than S20 million to
get in to see it-nearly 65,000 of them
were sold S.R.O. (Standing Room
Only) tickets.
Those interested in singing roles
should be prepared to sing a number
of their own choosing at the auditions.
In addition, singers will be asked to
sing a number from the show. Male
singers are especially needed. The
show has a song which is a one-in-a-
lifetime chance for a good tenor-
the melodious "On the Street Where
You Live."
There are roles to be filled by all
age groups and sizes. Two roles are
to be filled by agile young girl and
boy dancers (age 10-16) to perform
acrobatics as "the Buskers" in the
opening scene of the play.
A general invitation is extended to
the communfty-at-large to attend try-
outs, which virtually evolve into a
show. "My Fair Lady" is being pre-
sented by the Canal Zone United
Fund, Inc., in collaboration with the
Theatre Guild for the entertainment
of the Isthmian Community.
It will be produced and directed
by Bruce Quinn. Choreographer is
Tony Mata. Music will be furnished
by the U.S. Air Forces Southern
Command Band under the direction
of Capt. Loren Johnson, USAF.

Group Plays Tonight
The Group will play for the lively
set at the New Balboa Teen Club
tonight from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Dress
is sportswear. Members are admitted
free. Non-members pay a nominal
fee. The club is open from 7 to 10
p.m. Monday and on Friday nights
during the summer months.

nursery for working mothers; and
Ladies 'Home Leagues (English and
Spanish) meeting each week.
The Corps also still maintains its
school for the adult blind conducted
at the Masonic Temple, 13th Street
and Ave. A, the first organized school
for the blind in the Republic.
The recently formed Women's
Auxiliary of the Salvation Army,
working in the interests of this school,
currently is in the midst of a doll
project. Beautifully hand-dressed
dolls are being sold by supporters of
the school to make it possible to con-

Las Lluvias Hacen Abrir

Compuertas de Vertedero

Debido a los fuertes aguaceros que
han caido en la mayor parte del Ist-
mo a principios de esta semana, se
abrieron por primera vez en lo que
va del afio 2 de las 14 compuertas
del Vertedero de Gat6n. Las com-
puertas fueron abiertas a las 3:18
p.m. del lunes y permanecieron asi
hasta la 1:20 a.m. del martes, o sea
un total de 10 horas.
Es una de las veces en que se ha
abierto mis temprano un vertedero
en una estaci6n lluviosa, ya que el
nivel del Lago Gat6n raras veces
alcanza el punto donde se hace nece-
sario verter el agua en fecha tan tem-
prana. Pero las lluvias generals han
hecho subir el nivel del lago desde
86.34 a 86.55 en un period de 24
Aunque la estaci6n lluviosa no co-
menz6 tan temprano como en 1966,
el nivel del lago no cay6 bajo los 85
pies durante la reciente estaci6n seca,
un nivel que fue 1 pie mAs alto que
la estaci6n seca anterior. La reduc-
ci6n de la energia hidroel6ctrica en
Gat6n fue el factor principal en el
mantenimiento de este nivel.
Poco tiempo despubs que comen-
zaron las lluvias a finales de abril, el
nivel del Lago Gat6n comenz6 a subir
hasta su nivel normal de 86 pies en
la estaci6n Iluviosa. Durante las ulti-
mas 2 semanas, la producci6n de
energia hidroelectrica ha sido utili-
zada para regular el lago.
La operaci6n del vertedero tam-
bihn se hizo necesaria esta semana
para mantener el lago en la altura
deseada de 86.7 pies, lo que permi-
tiria controlar cualquier crecida que
pudiera seguir a fuertes aguaceros en
la cuenca del Lago Gatdn.
Mientras tanto, la Direcci6n de
Ingenieria y Construcci6n hizo la ad-
vertencia de que las operaciones del
vertedero podrian necesitarse en cual-
quier moment del dia o de la noche
en las Represas de Gatu6n y Madden.
La advertencia dice asi:
"Durante los pr6ximos 6 meses,
todas las personas que se encuentren
bajo el Vertedero de Gat6n y en el

Rio Chagres mAs abajo del Vertedero
de la Represa Madden, deberin estar
a la expectativa de un s6bito aumento
en el nivel del agua y en la fuerza de
la corriente.
"Las sirenas de alarma suenan 15
minutes antes de abrir el vertedero;
a partir de ese moment, el desagiie
se puede hacer en much mayor es-
cala sin dar ninguna alarma mas.
Debido a otros ruidos, es possible que
lejos de la represa no se pueda escu-
char la sirena; ello puede suceder,
ejemplo, en las cercanias del Puente
del Rio Chagres, sobre la Carretera
Boyd-Roosevelt, abajo de la Represa
"Se recuerda esto muy especial-
mente a los que tengan autom6viles,
remolques, lanchas y equipo de pesca
en lugares donde una elevaci6n del
nivel del agua pueda causar dafios o
una complete p6rdida.
"La cantidad de agua que se vierte
varia seg6n la situaci6n, pero el nivel
del agua en la laguna que estA bajo
el Vertedero de Gatin puede subir
tanto como 14 6 20 pies, y hasta 6
pies la secci6n del Rio Chagres donde
estA el puente que queda mas abajo
de la Represa Madden".
