Hearings Soon

Isthmus residents-civilian and mil-
itary-hoping to get Certificates of
Citizenship for themselves or depen-
dents this year are reminded that the
time for hearings here is only a
matter of weeks away.
Bruce G. Sanders, Jr., chief of the
Customs Division and administrator
of the Canal Zone Certificate of Cit-
izenship Assistance Program said
issuance of more than 400 certificates
is expected during the mid-September
hearings. That many applications are

Any person born outside the United
States of U.S.-citizen parents, whether
in the Canal Zone or in any other part
of the world, may take advantage of
the local Certificate of Citizenship
Assistance Program. Basically, an
applicant must supply his birth cer-
tificate, the marriage certificate of his
parents, and the birth certificate of
his U.S.-citizen parents.
In the case of a child born on
foreign soil of one U.S. citizen parent
and another of other citizenship, 10
years residence of the citizen parent
in the United States prior to the
child's birth is a requirement. The
statute dealing with the Canal Zone
determines the citizenship status of a
child according to the law in effect at
the time of birth of the child.
Any document in a foreign lan-
guage other than Spanish must be

16-Year-Old Zone Youth Helps

In Rescue of Astronaut's Son

A 16-year-old Canal Zone youth
was instrumental in the recent rescue
of the son of astronaut M. Scott Car-
penter in the Rocky Mountains.
Malcolm (Mack) Stone, son of
Capt. and Mrs. John H. Stone, Jr., of
Ancon, was hiking in the Flatirons
near Boulder, Colo., with young Jay
Carpenter, 15, of Seabrook, Tex., and
Hugh Robbins, 15, of Houston, Tex.
The three youths, all vacationing at
Chautauqua Park, got together for the
hike at about 1:00 p.m., Sunday,
June 25. A few hours later, Carpenter
and Robbins were trapped at a crevass
which they could net cross. The route
behind them was not retraceable.
Young Stone was still safe and,
descending the mountain, he found
two hikers of the Colorado Mountain
Club whom he directed to the crevass
where his two friends were trapped.
They were soon rescued.
Descending the trail, they met a
rescue squad with stretchers, medical
supplies, and other rescue paraphe-
nalia, as well as police and ambulances
at the foot of the mountain.
Later, the boys reported that their
hike had taken them off the beaten'
trail. They had failed to see a sign
at the base of the Flatirons warn-
ing climbers that ascent at that site
by other than veteran hikers was

Balboa High School next year.
Details of the rescue were con-
tained in a story in the Denver Rocky
Mountain News.

Under the new regulations, based
on the Military Selective Service Act
of 1967 effective July 1, local boards

course of instruction, and making
proportionate progress each academic

low as 38 feet only a few days at the
beginning of fiscal year 1967, the
cargo carried through the Canal

a record total of 92,983,791 long tons,
compared to 86,038,912 long tons in
fiscal year 1966.

Ex-C.Z. Residents'

Son Decorated for

Vietnam Heroism
The Bronze Star Medal for heroism
in action in Vietnam was awarded to
Sgt. Donald A. Soper, in a ceremony
at Fort Benning, Ga.
Sergeant Soper is the son of former
Canal Zone residents, Mr. and Mrs.
Arthur H. Soper, who left the Isthmus
in 1947 and are now making their
home in Tavares, Fla. Mr. Soper
worked for many years with the
Accounting Division and Mrs. Soper
was with Customs. Sergeant Soper's
grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles
F. Williams who are 90 and 92,
respectively, live in La Boca.
Sergeant Soper was serving as a
machine gunner on a daylong ambush
patrol when the enemy attacked.
When the patrol was in danger of
being overrun, he exposed himself to
hostile fire as he engaged the attackers
from different locations in an effort to
confuse them. Though wounded, he
continued to fight and on several
occasions singlehanded repelled the
enemy, the citation stated.
"Though hampered by a serious
loss of blood from a wound sustained
during the initial barrage of enemy
fire, he refused medical aid and con-
tinued to fight desperately against the
overwhelming power of the Viet
Cong. Suffering great pain and
weakened by loss of blood, he helped
supply the machineguns with ammu-
nition in addition to holding his own
position throughout the fierce battle."
Not until the enemy attack was
broken and the Viet Cong had with-
drawn did Soper accept first aid.
Sergeant Soper was hospitalized in
Japan following this action and re-
ceived the Purple Heart. He returned
to the United States and is stationed
at Fort Benning.
His grandfather, who retired as
Chief Planner and Estimator of the
Mechanical Division in 1939, a Roose-
velt Medal holder, lives at the home
of his son, Charles J. Williams,
yardmaster at the Balboa Railroad

Julia Child, a native Californian,
and two French ladies, Louisette
Bertholle and Simone Beck, have
produced an outstanding cookbook:
Mastering the Art of French Cook-
ing. A treasure trove for the dedicated
cook, this book is thorough in its de-
tail from buying and handling raw
ingredients to serving them, perfectly
cooked, on hot plates. Although you
may not be planning to serve Braised
Filet of Beef Stuffed with Foie Gras
and Truffles, you will learn something
from the French method of "blanch-
ing" green vegetables and from the
graphic little drawings that show you
just how to hold the pan when cook-
ing an omelet.
Arthur Crook, the scourge of crime,
is back in action again in The Look-
ing Glass Murder by Anthony Gilbert.
The story is told by a distressed
young lady whose involvement with
disaster makes Crook indulge in some
prodigious feats. This is a good one
for mystery fans.
In 1963 smoke began to rise from
the ocean near Iceland. A volcanic

Commending the Directors and
Managers of the Veterans Adminis-

"The bigger the Government, the
more urgent is the need to keep that
Government and Government services
personal. They must always be avail-

is illustrated by new Veterans Admin-

He continued: "I ask you this after-
noon to keep improving the record
you have already made, the good
record you have made.
"Keep searching for new ways to
shave costs so that the dollars that we
have to spend on the crucial work of
caring for our veterans can be used as
effectively as possible.

Motorists are being warned by the
Canal Zone Police that regulations
prohibiting the crossing of railroad
tracks when a train is approaching,
are being strictly enforced.
Operators of automobiles who drive
their vehicles over the railroad cross-
ing after the lights begin flashing and
the warning bell starts ringing are
subject to arrest.
Police say that this regulation has
not been strictly observed recently by
local motorists and that in just 2 days
4 persons were arrested and fined $10
in Balboa Magistrate's Court.
Flashing lights and ringing bells
signal the approach of the train at a
distance which makes it dangerous for
a motorist to attempt to cross.

Don't tow a skier in swimming
areas, narrow, and winding channels,
or areas containing docks, floats, and
Make sure that the skier





wears a proper lifesaving device.
Stop the engine before taking a

usually safer to take a person aboard
at the stern.

It was a small, thatched-hut village.
The chief's golden throne was stolen.
Every hut in the village was searched,
but the throne couldn't be found. The
reason: the thief had stored it into a
secret attic he had built into his grass
hut. After a few days, however, the
weight of the throne became too
much for the attic floor and it crashed
down, killing the thief.
Moral: People who live in grass
houses shouldn't stow thrones.

Charles T. Jackson, Jr., administrative officer in the Marine Bureau, who
retired after more than 31 years service with the Panama Canal was honored
at a Marine Bureau luncheon at the Roosevelt Room in the Tivoli Guest
House. Marine Bureau Director Capt. D. A. Dertien, USN, presented Jack-
son a Superior Service Award. "Charlie" also received a ship's clock from
his co-workers at the farewell luncheon. From left, Sharon Schmidt, June

Marine Bureau Administrative Aid

Retires After 31 Years with Canal

Charles T. Jackson, Jr., less formally
known as Charlie, who began his
career in the Panama Canal as a clerk
in the Office of the Port Captain
more than 31 years ago, was honored
at a farewell luncheon at the Tivoli
Guest House recently. He was pres-
ented a Superior Service Award by
Marine Bureau Director Capt. D. A.
Dertien, USN.
Born in Camden, N.J., on Christ-
mas Day in 1910, Jackson came to
the Isthmus when his father came to
work as a fleet carpenter and ship-
wright in the Dredging Division. He
attended Canal Zone schools and
graduated from Balboa High School.
His first job was with the United
Fruit Co. and he went to work for
the Canal organization in 1936.
Going up the ladder of promotion-
always in the Marine Bureau-Jackson
became a senior clerk, an administra-
tive assistant, and for the past 15
years has been administrative officer
of the Marine Bureau. In this ca-
pacity, and with a thorough knowl-
edge of canal traffic, shipping, billing
of vessels, and canal statistics, he has
been a reliable source of information
for all who sought it.

Art Classes Started
Classes in experimental art con-
ducted by Mrs. F. R. Johnson began
at Morgan's Gardens Thursday and
will continue for 6 weeks. Classes for
students who have a background in
painting are from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30
a.m., Thursdays. For more informa-
tion call Balboa 3484.

Boy Scouts Steve Alexander, left, and Tom Lambert, contenders in one of the
weekly knot-tying contests held at Camp Chagres from June 18 to July 8, in
a practice session. The Rope Yard is just one of many activity sites at the
scout camp near Madden Dam in the Canal Zone. Operated by the Canal
Zone Council, Boy Scouts of America, Camp Chagres draws Boy Scouts and
Explorer Scouts aged 11 to 18 from throughout the Zone. The youths practice
skill and speed in attempts to beat record time for tying nine basic knots all
Boy Scouts must learn.

In 1958, he received a Governor's
commendation and an incentive
award for a suggestion for redecking
of the Ferry Presidente Amador
which saved the Marine Bureau
almost $50,000.
Jackson and his family are en route
to their retirement home in Fort
Lauderdale, Fla.

Donald A. Soper
La Medalla de la Estrella de Bron-

A. Soper, en una ceremonia que tuvo
lugar en Fuerte Benning, Georgia.
El Sargento Soper es hijo de anti-

Tr fico del Canal

Sigue en Aumento

Despuks de un afio fiscal record
durante el cual 13.385 barcos de
alto bordo cruzaron el Canal de
Panama, no habia indicios de que
el trAfico estuviera disminuyendo.
Durante la primera parte de
julio, un promedio de 43 barcos
de 300 o mAs toneladas netas del
Canal de PanamA estaban utili-
zando el Canal, en comparaci6n
con el afio fiscal de 1966, cuyo
promedio dia-rio de barcos en train-
sito fue de 36.7.
El mes de julio comenz6 con

una gran cantidad de naves en
ambas entradas del Canal, al ter-
minar el afio fiscal el 30 de junio
de 1967 con una marea record de
51 barcos de alto bordo que pasa-
ron el Canal en ese period de
24 horas.
Al final del aiio calendario, el
hecho mAs important para las
autoridades del Canal es el au-
mento del nuimero de barcos de
104 pies de manga o mas. En
1966, un promedio de mas de 1
de estos gigantes pas6 a trav6s del
Canal todas las semanas. En 1965
hubo aproximadamente s6lo 1 al
mes. En el afio fiscal de 1967 hubo
73, y 3 transitaron durante los pri-
meros 10 dias de julio. Todos re-
quirieron un manejo espiecial y a
casi todos se les dio preferencia
de libre paso.
Estos barcos llevaban enormes
cargamentos como resultado del
aumento del calado a 39 pies en
abril y un aumento posterior a 39
pies, 6 pulga das, a partir del 27
de junior.
Puesto que el calado permisi-
ble baj6 s6lo hasta 38 pies du-
rante unos pocos dias a principios
del afio fiscal de 1967, la carga
transportada a trav6s del Canal
durante el period de 12 meses
alcanz6 el record de 92.983.791
toneladas largas, en comparaci6n
con las 86.038.912 toneladas lar-
gas del afio fiscal de 1966.

Honra a Joseph N. French

El 4 de julio de 1967, ademAs de
ser el Dia de la Independencia de los
Estados Unidos, fue el Dia de Joseph

En la tarde, j6venes de todas las
comunidades latinoamericanas de la

cias deportivas en su honor, y por la
noche, los elements mis prestantes
de Rainbow City, Santa Cruz, Paral-

Santa Cruz para honrar a Joseph N.

posici6n de Ayudante de Actividades

El motive de estos actos no fue la
posici6n destacada que el Sr. French
ocupa en la Divisi6n de Escuelas.
Las comunidades latinoamericanas de
la Zona del Canal le dedicaron ese
homenaje debido a sus desvelos por
la juventud toda de esas comunidades.
Pues French, desde hace muchos
anos, es un segundo padre para todos
los j6venes de esas Areas durante las

Por la noche, en el Auditorio de
Santa Cruz, personas de todas las
capas sociales se dieron cita en una
cena en honor de French para rendir
tribute de gratitud al hombre que,
durante muchos afios, ha sido el
segundo padre de muchos de los
j6venes del Istmo.
Orador principal del acto fue el
Sr. Ellis L. Fawcett, Supervisor de
las Escuelas Latinoamericanas de la
Zona del Canal, quien dijo que
French "como el escultor extra imA-

mentos vivos a su memorial, much

Para terminar, Fawcett dijo que
French "es todo un maestro en el
verdadero e integral sentido de la
palabra, pues siempre ha sido un ver-
dadero servidor de la humanidad".
Los presents, conmovidos, al es-

El Origen de Ciertos

Accidentes de Trabajo

Los ingenieros disefian y constru-
yen los equipos con seguridad. Los
supervisors y los encargados de se-
guridad agregan otros resguardos y
ensefian prActicas seguras, sin embar-
go el personal continua sufriendo ac-
cidentes. Examinemos unos cuantos
casos y tratemos de averiguar qu6
causa los accidents.
1. Un ayudante se encuentra re-
parando un banco y su supervisor le
pide que le alise una pieza de madera
en la cepilladora. El trabajador ha
visto a otros usar la maquina y, aun-
que 61 mismo no lo ha hecho antes,
cree que podri hacerlo. Parece fAcil.
Asi que resuelve hacerlo. Extiende
los dedos por encima del borde de la
pieza y pierde un par de falanges.
Sabemos lo que ocurri6 aqui. El su-
pervisor no se asegur6 de que el tra-
bajador conociera la manera de usar
la cepilladora. No lo habia compro-
bado. Los dos habian dado demasiado
por supuesto.
2. En otro caso, un supervisor que
esti adiestrando en una troqueladora
a una nueva empleada le indica que
si alguna vez se llega a atascar una
pieza en el molde no meta la mano,
sino que use la varita de madera para
empujarla y le muestra la manera de
Poco tiempo despu6s se traba una
pieza. La operaria busca en los alre-
dedores la varita y como no la ve, re-
suelve emplear un destornillador que
tiene al alcance de la mano. Al hacer
esta operaci6n pone a funcionar acci-
dentalmente la maquina y arruina asi
una matriz muy costosa.
Ella no habia recibido una explica-
ci6n de por qu6 la varita que se em-
pleaba era de madera. El supervisor
no se habia asegurado de que ella lo
supiera y, de nuevo, se habia dado
demasiado por supuesto.

Desde luego que estas personas,
incluyendo a los supervisors, debe-
rian haberlo pensado mejor. Pero es
la labor del supervisor el asegurarse
de que el personal est6 bien infor-
mado y sepa c6mo emplear los cono-
cimientos. Es esta la raz6n por la que
el adiestramiento, la ensefianza y la
instrucci6n sobre el trabajo son part
muy important de los deberes de un
