S.. and in Other Words,

Drive So You'll Be Back


In view of Easter week and the
long weekend during which half of
the population of Panama drives to
mountain and beach resorts and re-
turns on Sunday, the Panama Canal
Safety Branch has issued a plea for
caution on Isthmian highways.
"The accident is a people prob-
lem," the safety men say-because
people are behind the wheels of the
vehicles that go out of control, that
fail to avoid pedestrians, that strike
other vehicles, that run off the road.
It is also a people problem because
people decide whether they will have
another drink for the road before they
head for home in the wee hours of
the morning.
Canal Zone residents are reminded
that when they are driving in the
Republic of Panama and especially
on the roads to the Interior, in addi-
tion to observing the normal precau-
tions, they will get valuable assist-
ance in case of trouble or an accident
from the highly trained Highway
Patrol, the elite of the Panama
National Guard traffic section.
The members of the corps will be
found parked or on patrol in their
distinctly marked cars which carry
a first aid kit, a CO2 fire extinguisher,
a full 5-gallon gasoline container for
those whose cars have run out of gas,
pick, shovel and axe, stretcher and
blankets. Most men speak English

LECTIOn
Emily J. Price

for the layman is a
ct, but Charles H.


Knickerbocker, a practicing phy-
sician, gives straight answers to
questions about psychiatric problems
in his book Hide-and-Seek. His
theme is "the effect of mind, body,
and emotion on personality and
behavior in ourselves and others."
Especially interesting are his views
on hostility and aggression and what
to do about them.
A psychopathic personality straight
out of the book above is the subject
of Jan Roffman's mystery, Grave of
Green Water. Handsome, charm-
ing, completely unprincipled, Ashley
Jones pursues his selfish way aided
and protected by his doting wife
and other impressionable ladies.


Those who know him for what he
is have a hard time proving it.
The Tower of Babel, by Morris
L. West, has its setting in Israel and
Lebanon on the brink of the June
1967 Six-Day War. The story re-
volves around five major characters,
each of whom has a stake in the
mounting political crisis. Written
with skill, the novel gives some in-
sight into the paradoxes of Middle
East politics and the story is of
absorbing interest.
Allen Dulles, former director of
the Central Intelligence Agency, has
edited a collection called Great True
Spy Stories, all about actual hap-
penings, with many reading like
the wildest kind of James Bond
thriller. Classified into categories
such as "Networks," "Counter-
espionage," and "Double Agents,"
the stories are mostly about modern
spies, although there is one fine
example from Herodotus and one
that casts a startling new light on
George Washington. Many are well-
chosen excerpts from longer books
and the collection as a whole is
required reading for a do-it-yourself
course of espionage.
Sebastien Japrisot has suddenly
emerged as a French contender for
mystery writing honors. His third
novel, The Lady in the Car With
Glasses and a Gun, has an intricate
plot, a fascinating heroine, and a
thrilling chase up and down France
in a white Thunderbird. This is
gourmet fare for mystery addicts.

Elementary Physical Education

Has Taken On a Real "New Look"


Say goodbye to the recess of
yesteryear and ring a school bell for
"new" elementary physical educa-
tion.
Today, in the Canal Zone as well
as in other progressive schools in
the United States, the physical educa-
tion program at the elementary level
is being strengthened. Education re-
search has shown strong associations
between motor development and
general academic success.
A long term-study in Medford,
Oreg., has shown that those schools
having good physical education pro-
grams turn out students with higher

In the Canal Zone, a well-balanced
program is being promoted. This en-
tails offering not only sports activi-
ties but rhythmic instruction, fitness
and conditioning activities, and
stunts and tumbling.
Many of the pupils have also had
the thrill of taking part in the Atlan-
tic side Elementary Schools Sports
Appreciation night held on March 22
at Coco Solo, or the Pacific area
Elementary Physical Fitness Meet at
Balboa several weeks ago.
One of the pioneers of the matur-

more than 20 years on both the
Atlantic and Pacific sides she has
motivated and challenged both the
physically gifted and those not so

Her inspiration and insight, into
helping young pupils find their own
way through difficult times, a top
school official said, have set a high
mark for others to follow.

La Romintica Leyenda del



Charco Negro de Canazas


Nacido en lo mis azul y lejano del
Cerro Viejo, que en tiemnpos ine-
morables fue volcAn active, El Coro-
zal, riachuelo que atraviesa pefiascos
y rocas se precipita en una piscina
natural llamada "El Charco Negro",
nombre que tiene origen en una
leyenda, atesorada por los habitan-
tes de Cafiazas y bellanente elabo-
rada por el joven escritor panamenio
Virgilio Mendez Merida.
Hace casi 2 siglos cuando Cafia-
zas era un villorrio recien fundado
por los espafioles, tenia sus casas
hechas de hojas y su iglesia parecia
mis bien una choza grande. El sa-
cerdote, viendo la ignorancia de sus
feligreses, les ensefi6 a leer y escri-
bir, a respetar las leyes de Dios y
a amarse como hermanos.
Al conocerse la noticia de que en
Cafiazas habia much oro lleg6 un
extranjero de muy malas costumbres
y sumamente descreido.
Un Viernes Santo, el sacerdote
pidi6 a los files que, ademAs del
ayuno y de la abstinencia de came,
se abstuvieran de bafiarse en El Co-
rozal, para asi acompafiar al Sefior
en el recuerdo de su dolorosa pasi6n


y crucifixion con ese pequefio sacri-
ficio. Mas el extranjero se mof6 del
sacerdote y de su predicaci6n. Mo-
mentos despu6s, en medio de todo
el pueblo, comia care de res asada.
Cuando una carga de p6lvora explo-
t6 anunciando la hora en que muri6
el Sefior en la cruz a las 3 p.m. se
lanzaba el extranjero al rio. Las
aguas se abrieron, tragAndose el
cuerpo del descreido. Unos curiosos
que habian ido a espiarlo se sorpren-
dieron al ver que la superficie se
mantenia tranquila y que el extrahio
individuo no salia a la superficie, a
pesar del tiempo que pasaba. Buzos
del lugar escudrifiaron sin 6xito el
fondo del rio y un profundo temor
se apoder6 del pueblo cuando al dia
siguiente vieron que las aguas, antes
cristalinas, se tornaron negras, como
si les hubieran echado carbon molido.
Luego corri6 el rumor de que un
anciano desconocido y venerable
habia predicho, en tono solemne,
que el charco recuperaria su primi-
tive color cristalino, cuando el alma
de una doncella angelical volara al
cielo desde el fondo de sus ondas
impuras.


Pasaron muchos arios, y un dia
lleg6 a pasear a Cafiazas una joven
de unos 16 afios, muy bella y amable
que se Ilamaba Rosalia. Todo el
pueblo la queria porque se supo
ganar ese cariflo con su bondad y
su dulzura.
Un dia caluroso, la vispera del re-
greso a su ciudad natal, se le ocurri6
bafiarse en el rio El Corozal. Al pasar
frente a una iglesia, entr6 y rez6 y
puso un ramo de flores a los pies de
la Virgen Maria. Fue luego con un
grupo de amiguitas y de pronto vie-
ron en el camino que conducia al
"Charco Negro" unos lirios silves-
tres. La curiosidad por ver lo pro-
hibido las hizo ilegar hasta dicho
charco, cuyas aguas tranquilas les
provocaron darse un baio.
Rosalia nad6 un buen rato y de
pronto sinti6 que le faltaba el aliento.
Trat6 de aferrarse a una raiz, pero
no pudo y se fue quedando dormida.
Y asi se cumpli6 la predicci6n del
anciano. El charco se torn nueva-
mente cristalino, cuando el alma de
la doncella angelical vo16 al cielo
desde las aguas impuras.

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


El Periodismo en Panama


Y la Casa del Periodista


Notas Breves
Una de las asociaciones de mias
prestigio en la Republica de Panamai
es el Sindicato de Periodistas de Pa-
nami, cuyo president actual, Victor
Rall Visquez fue reelecto por un
segundo period en octubre de 1967.
La historic del periodismo en
Panama se remonta hasta los dias de
la colonia, cuando ocasionalmente
hacian su aparici6n modestos peri6-
dicos en fonna de gacetillas de muy
corta duraci6n. Con la independen-
cia el periodismo panameino tuvo
much auge y podemos decir que el
gran periodismo hizo su aparici6n
con la publicaci6n del Star & Herald,
que bajo el lema "por las causes que
necesiten ayuda; por el future a la
distancia; por el mal al que haya que
oponerse, y por el bien que pueda
hacer", hizo su aparici6n en la ciudad
de Panama, en 1849.
El Diario Mas Antiguo
Luego, se le afiadi6 La Estrella
de Panama, publicada por la misma
casa editorial, convirti6ndose en pe-
ri6dico bilingiie. Despu6s de 1880,
hubo un tiempo en que esa casa edi-
torial public L'Etoile de Panama,
convirti6ndose asi en el 6nico diario
trilingiie habido en Panamni.
De entonces acu, en Panama se
han publicado infinidad de diaries,
semanarios, quincenarios y revistas
mensuales. Los residents, paname-
fos y extranjeros, muy dados a es-
cribir han colaborado con ellos en
calidad de asalariados o colaborado-
res gratuitos. Y la clase periodistica
de PanamA, aunque no lo parezca,
siempre ha sido relativamente grande
y a ella han pertenecido personas de
todos los niveles.
Desde un principio, naci6 el gre-
mio de los periodistas en las tertu-
lias que se formaban a fines del pasa-
do siglo en el vestibulo del Gran
Hotel Central o en el del Hotel
Metropole, frente a la Plaza de
Santa Ana. Pero no fue sino hasta
1927, cuando se form la primer
"Asociaci6n de Periodistas de Pana-
ma", en la cual se unieron casi todos
los que trabajaban en aquel enton-
ces en los peri6dicos que se publi-
caban en PanamA. En esa primera
organizaci6n de los periodistas pa-
namefos figuraban nombres tales
como Ricardo Mir6, Victor Floren-
cio Coytia, Jos6 Isaac FAbrega,
Sim6n Eliet y el inolvidable Nacho
Vald6s. Esa asociaci6n funcion6 por
muchos afios.
Naci6 el Sindicato
Pero, ya para 1947, el periodismo
era algo completamente profesiona-
lizado en nuestro medio, y los que
se ganan la vida borroneando cuar-
tillas diaries por un salario, los mu-
chachos de la prensa, pensaron en
organizer una uni6n y asi naci6 el
"Sindicato de Periodistas de Pana-
ma", en memorable reuni6n que tuvo
lugar en el patio del Hotel Central
de la ciudad de PanamA.
El president provisional que re-
sult6 de la reuni6n de fundaci6n del
Sindicato de Periodistas de Panama
fue el Dr. Carlos Rangel. El se en-
carg6 de la redacci6n de los prime-
ros estatutos y luego de organizer
las primeras elecciones en las que
result electo Armando Moreno

distas de PanamA.
Despues de 1l han regido los des-
tinos del sindicato los siguientes pe-
riodistas profesionales: Carlos Ran-
gel, Carlos Soli Bosh, Dr. Luis Gon-

Notas Interesantes
Dos hermanos han sido presiden-
tes del sindicato. Los licenciados
Joaquin y Guillermo Belefio. Tres de
los presidents han sido reelegidos:
Luis M. Botello, Jos6 Agustin Cajar
Escala y el actual, Victor Rail
V4squez. Ademis, en el Sindicato de
Periodistas de PanamA, cuya sede
esta en la capital de la Repmublica y
que agrupa la gran mayoria de los
periodistas profesionales de la capi-
tal, estan inscritos distinguidos pe-
riodistas que trabajan en peri6dicos
del interior de la Repiblica. En
1962, la lista de socios activos del
sindicato era de 60, pero en los ulti-
mos 8 afios ha mostrado un tremendo
crecimiento y actuahlente el n6mero
de miembros activos es de 137.
La Casa del Periodista
Luego de tenaz lucha, que se ini-
ci6 con la fundaci6n del sindicato,
en 1952 fue construida la sede del
sindicato, que es conocida como La
Casa del Periodista. Es un bello edi-
ficio de tres plants y un auditorio,
inaugurado durante la administra-
ci6n del Presidente Alcibiades Aro-
semena y siendo president del Sin-
dicato de Periodistas de PanamA, el
conocido professional Jos6 Agustin
Cajar Escala.
La Casa del Periodista es la Casa
de la Cultura de PanamA. Alli tienen
lugar las asambleas generals y los
actos de toma de posesi6n de las jun-
tas directives del gremio. Muchos
actos trascendentales en la vida na-
cional del pais tienen lugar en el
auditorio de la Casa del Periodista,
que ha tenido una espl6ndida reno-
vaci6n durante la presidencia de

"Los accidents son un problema
de personas", los funcionarios de se-

sonas las que estAn detrAs del volante
de los vehiculos que pierden el con-
trol, que no pueden evitar un peat6n,
que chocan contra otros vehiculos y
que se salen de la carretera.
Tambien es un problema de per-
sonas porque son personas las que
decide si se toman otra copa mis
en el camino antes de dirigirse a
casa a tempranas horas de la madru-
gada.
Se recuerda a los residents de la
Zona del Canal que cuando manejen
en la Repsblica de Panama y espe-
cialmente en la carretera hacia el in-
terior ademis de usar las precaucio-
nes normales, obtendrAn la valiosa
asistencia, en caso de problems o
accidents, de la bien adiestrada
Patrulla de Caminos, la lite de la
secci6n de trAnsito de la Guardia
National de PanamA.
Los miembros de este cuerpo se
encuentran estacionados o en patru-
lla con sus autos marcados con su
insignia distintiva anaranjada de una
rueda alada y Ilevan cada uno un
botiquin para primeros auxilios, un
extintor de gas CO2 para incendios,
un tanque portAtil de 5 galones de
gasoline para ayudar a quienes se
han quedado sin combustible, pico,
pala y hacha, camilla y frazadas. La
mayoria de ellos habla ingl6s y estin
en la carretera para ayudar. No lo
molestarAn a usted a menos que usted
quebrante alguna regla de trAnsito.
