PanCanal Unit

Assists on R. of PR

Dam Project
Effectiveness of United States ca-
pabilities under conditions much the
same as the original Canal builders
had to face was the challenge pre-
sented the Panama Canal's Core Drill-
ing Unit of the Engineering and Con-
struction Bureau's Dredging Division
in assisting in Panama's Bayano River
Hydro Dam Project in the Darien
jungle of eastern Panama.
Now, 5 months after the job was
undertaken, the work has been com-
pleted and a new generation of Canal
employees has demonstrated the same
qualities that made a reality of the
Panama Canal dream.
The Core Drilling Unit is a little-
known but important area of the
Dredging Division. Its tasks are essen-
tial to operation of the Canal, to the
United States armed services, and to
private industry on the Isthmus, for
many times private industry and
Government agencies outside the
Canal Zone have need of the unit's
services. That's why Panama Canal
employees and equipment traveled to
the Darien jungle Bayano River
Hydro Dam job.
A Spanish consulting firm, Estudios
y Proyectos Tecnicos Industriales, was
selected to prepare designs for the
hydroelectric project. This firm had
asked for public bids on the core drill-
ing test work. Only the Core Drilling
Unit of the Panama Canal organiza-
tion, it was found, had sufficient
equipment, personnel, and know-how
to do the work.
Jos6 Corrionero, project manager
for Estudios y Proyectos T6cnicos In-
dustriales, met with Col. James A.
Betts, Director of the Panama Canal's

CFC Response "Dramatic,"9

Governor Leber Declares
Gratified at the success of the Combined Federal Campaign, Gov. W. P.
Leber, in a message to employees, said:
Employees of the Panama Canal organization maintain high standards
for their part in Canal operations. I have often spoken of this with pride.
I am equally proud of the spirit our employees display in their efforts
to help build an ever-better Community life.
Each year during this month, contributions of funds are solicited
through the Combined Federal Campaign to assist worthy activities which
are an integral part of the strength of our Community. Each year, em-
ployees of the Canal organization have fully met their responsibilities in
this respect.
When the appeal was sounded this year, the response was dramatic. By
only the ninth day of the campaign, the Canal organization's assigned
agency goal had been surpassed! Outstanding accomplishments by
bureaus, units, and individuals were numerous. For example, one bureau
reached its assigned goal the first day of the campaign. Contributions of
over $40,000 have been reported from just one bureau.
In behalf of the participating agencies of the Canal Zone United Fund
and the International Service Agencies, I thank each of you for your time,
efforts, and generous contributions. Combined, these have led us to
another highly successful Combined Federal Campaign.

for Latin American schools of the Pa- to whether any dental defects or
cific District was started October 13 deficiencies exist, and recommend
and will continue until all schools are (Continued on p. 2)
completed. U.S. schools of the Canal
Zone will be surveyed after January 8.
As in past years, the second, fourth,
and eighth grades will be examined.
This gives each child who completes
eight grades in the Canal Zone school
system an opportunity to have .
three such dental examinations before -" -
entering high school. .
All examinations are done with -
mouth mirror and explorer. This den-
tal survey is part of the Canal Zone
schools health program and has been
conducted annually since 1956. At
that time every child from kinder-
garten through the sixth grade was -
examined in all schools.
Purpose of this dental survey is to
get the child acquainted with den-
tistry, check the dental health of the r


GED Tests Slated
High school level General Educa-
tional Development tests are to be
administered at Canal Zone College
November 16, 17, 18, and 20. These
tests provide an opportunity for U.S.
citizens living on the Isthmus who
have not completed high school to
take the examinations for a high
school equivalency certificate. For
further information call Balboa 2380,

Nursing Services Refresher Course

Begins Nov. 6 at Gorgas Hospital


A 4-week nursing services refresher
course for inactive nurses in the Canal
Zone will be offered at Gorgas Hos-
pital beginning November 6. The
refresher course, under the direction
of Miss Eileen McCarthy, Director
of Nursing Services, will be given in
the nursing arts classroom of the
hospital.
Classes will meet 5 days a week
with 3-hour sessions in the morning
and afternoon. The morning classes,
from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., will consist
of classroom review and updating of
nursing knowledge and skills. After-
noon instruction, from 12:30 to 3:30
p.m., will be in actual guided experi-
ence in the wards of the hospital.
The refresher course also will in-
clude training visits to Palo Seco and
Corozal hospitals and instruction on
up to date aspects in the field of
Public Health.
It is estimated that one third of the
women who qualify as registered


nurses are not now working in the
profession. This situation and the
growth of hospital facilities plus new
trends in medical care and the nmul-
tiple role of today's nurse have caused
an acute shortage of nurses in both
the United States and the Canal Zone.
The pilot course in nursing services
has been set up to give to this valuable
group of inactive professional women
an opportunity to return to the active
ranks. The refresher course will pro-
vide nurses for part-time, or full-time
positions, for emergencies or for
private practice.
Requirements for the refresher
course are: registered nurse status;
good health and willingness to work.
There is no age limit. If sufficient
interest is shown by this inactive
group of professional women, re-
fresher courses will be offered perio-
dically. Interested persons may con-
tact the Office of Nursing Services,
Gorgas Hospital, telephone 2-6445.

Schools List

Schedules for

Visiting Days

James Russell Lowell, writing in
the mid-19th century, said, "It was
in making education not only common
to all, but in some sense compulsory
to all, that the destiny of the free
republic of America was practically
settled."
Our country's philosophy and the
great driving force of education has
been to bring out the best in the
greatest number of people. And bring-
ing out the best in more than 56
million students requires quality edu-
cation superior to any the world has
yet known.
To celebrate the efforts of Amer-
ican public schools in this great adven-
ture, the Canal Zone Schools will
observe visiting day during American
Education Week according to the
following schedule:

Elementary

Pacific side-Thusday, November 9.
Atlantic side-Wednesday, Novem-
ber 8.

Secondary

Pacific side-Wednesday, Novem-
ber 8.
Atlantic side-Tuesday, November 7.
This year's annual event has as
its theme "How Good Are Your
Schools?"
According to F. A. Castles, Super-
intendent of Schools, "Every parent
in this community has the right and
privilege of visiting our schools to
witness the many facets of teaching
methodology."
American Education Week is spon-
sored by the National Education
Association, American Legion, Na-
tional Congress of Parents and Teach-
ers, and U.S. Office of Education.
Beginning Sunday, the schools will
participate in events to show how
good they really are.


IN TECHNICAL SCHOOL
Mary E. Pope, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Darvin E. Pope of Margarita,
has enrolled in the dental nursing
course at the Elkhart Institute of
Technology, Elkhart, Ind.


Henry Carpenter (left) chief foreman, Buildings and Maintenance Shops,
Cristobal Field Office, Maintenance Division, who is retiring from Canal
Zone service, was presented a Master Key to the Panama Canal Locks and

Axton T. Jones (right) of the Transportation and Terminals Bureau. The
ceremony was held in Captain Jones' office in the Terminals Building, Cris-
tobal. Carpenter has 33 years in U.S. Government service. Mrs. Carpenter
also was presented a Master Key to the Locks. Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter left
the Isthmus last week and will make their temporary home in Eldon, Mo.

COLLECTIOnr
By Emily J. Price

Los Angeles, the Ultimate City, is
a provocative book. Christopher Rand
wrote it originally for "The New
Yorker" and it is in the typical "New
Yorker" profile style. The statistics of
this fast-growing giant among cities
are all here and the problems peculiar
to it: the lack of water, the wealth of
oil, the smog, and the vast building
projects. Also the affinity of the in-
habitants for mechanical "gadgets,"
radios, helicopters, the aerospace in-
dustry, automobiles (the author attri-
butes the smog to exhausts of the big
cars loved by Southern Californians).
Captured along the way is much of
the spirit of this vital part of America.
Well worth reading.
Mary Stewart's new novel, The
Gabriel Hounds, is set in Lebanon,

where two young cousins seek an
elderly relative living in isolated
splendor in an Arabian palace. There
is the familiar Stewart pattern of
engaging young characters and a well-
realized exotic setting. Each book,
however, seems even better than the
one before. This one will delight
readers.
A big, fascinating picture book is
Mila Contini's Fashion, from Ancient
Egypt to the Present Day. Costumes
of all eras are here in reproductions
of paintings, statues, and drawings.
The drape of a toga, the style of a
ruff, the hairstyles of many genera-
tions can all be found here, along with
what was high fashion from Nefertiti
to Mary Quant.
An appealing book about nature is
Daniel P. Mannix' The Fox and the
Hound. The story follows a fox and a
hound from their puppyhood to their
old age-one always in pursuit of the
other, and the other always evasive.
The author has raised a pair of foxes
and is familiar with their habits and
their intelligence.
Agatha Christie's The Third Girl
puts Hercule Poirot in touch with
modern youth, with a shattering effect
on his ego. The girl who consults him
in a murder case decides he is too old
to help her. Poirot's pride has to be
restored before the mystery can be
solved.

School Dental Survey Under Way


(Continued from p. 1)
any special treatment if and when
necessary.
The survey also is an aid in com-
puting the rate and percentage of
decay, missing teeth, and fillings of
the school children in the Canal Zone.
This then permits comparison with
school children of other communities.
For the school year 1966-67, the
Canal Zone U.S. schools had 60.4
percent no dental defects compared
with 40.8 percent no dental defects
in 1956. Latin American schools in
1966-67 had 62.7 percent no dental
defects compared to 27.3 percent in
1956.
These figures indicate that these
surveys have been of great value in
detennining dental health among
school children and, in addition, point


up the value of the addition of sodium
fluoride to the water supply in 1956.
Dr. L. E. Fontaine, Chief, Dental
Service, Gorgas Hospital, is doing the
examinations in the Latin American
schools. Mrs. Henri Skeie, Mrs.
Evelyn R. Koperski, Mrs. Maria L.
Keller, Mrs. Josephine Watts, Mrs.
Elizabeth Kosan, and Mrs. Mary E.
Rabon, school nurses, are assisting the
dentist. Miss Delia Miller and Miss
Berta Paz Rodriguez do the recording.
Dr. Fontaine and Capt. Andre
Buchs, Preventive Dentistry Officer,
Fort Clayton, will conduct the survey
in the U.S. schools. The examiners try
to be as thorough as possible. It is,
however, necessary to impress upon
parents that this examination should
not take the place of regular dental
check-ups by dentists of their choice.

One hundred and twenty-one young
people of Santa Cruz are receiving
free academic and vocational training
which will prepare them for a better
place in life, thanks to a group of
sincere and energetic community
leaders who organized the Multi-
Purpose Welfare Center in that buzz-
ing Dredging Division center.
The center was started in July with
cooperation of the Canal Zone Social
Service Staff, and was officially
inaugurated August 21, when a public
program and ribbon cutting ceremony
brought it into official existence.
Sponsors of the free educational
program are 14 community groups:
the Banana Stevedores Society, Civil
Defense, Community Youth, Gamboa
Federal Credit Union, Camboa 7th
Day Adventist Church, International
Boy Scouts of the Canal Zone, Inter-
national Girl Scouts of the Canal
Zone, National Baptist Church, Our
Lady of Good Council, Catholic
Church, Santa Cruz Civic Council,
Santa Cruz Community Welfare
Council, Santa Cruz School, St.
Simon's Episcopal Church, and the
Canal Zone Summer Recreation
Board. Two representatives of each
of these organizations constitute the
Executive Board.
I leading the Board of Directors are
Richard T. Burns, president; Mrs.
Gladys Hlumphrey, vice president;
Mrs. Hilda Butcher, secretary, and
William Lawrence, treasurer.
Cnmimitte chairmen are Ralph
Thorne, Building and Equipment;
Clarence Gordon, Membership and
Personnel; Mrs. Mavis Grant, Pro-
gram; Miss Myrtle Mulcare, Public
Relations and Publicity; and Mrs.
Beulah Small, Budget and Finance.


Miss Pearl Williams of Paraiso is
director of the center.
Classes are being conducted in
navigation, with C. Patrick, A. Jamie-
son, Gilbert Card, and William
Gordon as instructors; tailoring,
Richard Burns; woodwork, Ralph
Thorne; decorative cooking, Mrs.
Isabel Elliott and Mrs. Eunice Haugh-
ton; dressmaking, Mrs. Eula Shan;
Spanish, Miss Maria Vargas; English,
Audley Webster; square dancing,
Toribio Martin and Adriano McCul-
lough; and beauty culture, Misses
Angela Davy and Sharon Wade. All
instructors, as well as members of the
board and others who serve, render
volunteer service and do not receive
any payment.
Planned for the future are swim-
ming classes, Mother's Club, arith-
metic classes, a Family Relations
Course, and an Adolescent Club. The
latter two groups will be under the
direction of a social worker from the
Social Service Staff.
Premises and equipment made
available without charge by the Canal
Zone Division of Schools are used for
these classes, which are conducted for
2V2-hour periods 2 nights a week.
Courses are planned to run for 6
months.
Those desiring to participate in the
classes are required to pay registra-
tion fee of S2 to become member of
the center, but all classes are free to
members. There are no further fees.
Starting in January, the center will be
sponsored by the United Fond. The
$2 fee plus financial assistance from
the Canal Zone United Fund will go
toward purchase of material for the
classes.

quirements. In a spirit of international
cooperation, the PanCanal officials
agreed to undertake the project.
The Core Drilling Unit's equip-
ment, including drills and pumps and
other gear, had to be hauled to the
Bayano area on trucks. Then it was
loaded on a flat-top barge and pushed
up the Bayano River by native dug-
outs (piraguas). A modern touch: the
outboard motors. Gangs of laborers
had to hack away jungle and a small
bulldozer was used to provide paths
between drill locations.
A modern camp constructed by the
Panama Government's Instituto de
Recursos Hidr.ulicos y Electrificaci6n
had air conditioning, electric lights,
toilets and showers, when in operating
condition. Many times the men had
to join the natives washing in the
river-often muddy.
As work progressed, Estudios y

creased its requirements from core
drilling at the main dam location to
testing of bridge foundation holes on
the proposed road, and to tests in the
area of the auxiliary dam.
The Core Drilling Unit provided
two skid-type drill rigs with a crew
on each, as well as a new truck-
mounted drill rig which drilled holes
in spots accessible by road. To com-
plete the job as quickly as possible,
the crews worked 12 hours daily,
6 days a week.

blaci6n, centro de la Divisi6n de
Dragas.
El centro se inici6 en julio con la

el 21 de agosto, cuando en una cere-
monia p'blica se cort6 la traditional
cinta tricolor y se le concedi6 oficial-
mente la existencia.

tis: la Sociedad de Estibadores de
Bananos, la Defensa Civil, la Juven-
tud de la Comunidad, la Cooperativa

Semana de Educaci6n


SerA Observada Aqui


James Russell Lowell, escribiendo
a mediados del Siglo XIX, dijo: "El
hacer que la educaci6n no s6lo sea
comun a todos, sino que, en cierto
sentido, sea obligatoria para todos, es
en lo que practicamente se basa el
destino de la republica independiente
de Estados Unidos de Amnrica".
La filosofia de los Estados Unidos
y la gran fuerza impulsora de la edu-
caci6n han contribuido a obtener lo
mejor de un gran ndmero de perso-
nas. Y ello se ha conseguido de una
manera como jamAs el mundo ha visto
anteriormente.
Para celebrar los esfuerzos de las
escuelas piiblicas estadounidenses en
esta gran aventura, las Escuelas de la
Zona del Canal tendran 1 dia de visi-
ta durante la Semana de la Educaci6n
en Estados Unidos, de acuerdo con el
siguiente plan:

noviembre.
Del sector Atlantico-El mi6rcoles,
8 de noviembre.
Secundarias

noviembre.
Del sector Atlantico-El martes, 7 de
