Vol. VII, No. 12 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, September 6, 1968


m-




Principals in the upcoming 1969 Combined Federal Campaign exchange
comment after signing their Statement of Agreement for Participation. From
left, they are: Paul M. Runnestrand, Panama Canal Executive Secretary,
serving as executive director of the Canal Zone United Fund, Inc.; Lt. Gov.
H. R. Parfitt, chairman of the fund-raising program coordinating com-
mittee, CFC; and E. David Luria, acting chief of mission CARE-Panama,
representing International Service Agencies. The campaign will begin
September 30 and run through November 1.


Checkoff Time


Nears for CFC


Just checkoff with a little check
what you gave last year. If every-
body does this, PanCanal will easily
achieve its goal in the 1969 Com-
bined Federal Campaign.
That's right-that's all you have to
do, and this is the idea, plus the
symbol, of this year's appeal from
CFC. It's a checkmark, one of the
oldest and simplest signs of identifi-
cation, but it's as modern as the jet
set and perhaps the most widely used
symbol in the world today.
As it did last year, the symbol will
identify the wearer as one who has
given his "Fair Share."
The Statement of Agreement for
participation in the 1969 Combined
Federal Campaign has now been
signed by the principals-Paul M.
Runnestrand, executive director,
Canal Zone United Fund, Inc.;
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt, chairman of
the fund-raising program coordinat-
ing committee, CFC; and E. David
Luria, acting chief of Mission,
CARE-Panama, representing Inter-
national Service Agencies.
The campaign will get underway
formally September 30 and continue
until November 1.
The attractive gold-colored check-
mark may be worn as a tie-tac, lapel
button or simply as a pin. No matter
how worn, it means the wearer is a
member of the exclusive Fair Share
Club and has pledged to give his
"fair share" to this year's CFC drive
which benefits both the Canal Zone
United Fund and the International
Service Agencies.


Sweet Adelines

Meet Monday
The Monday night meetings of
Crossroads Chapter, Sweet Adelines
Inc., women's barbershop singing
chorus, will start September 9 at
7:30 p.m. at the Cristobal Woman's
Club, 8151, off Margarita Avenue,

hear, observe, and inquire. Three
visits are permitted before applica-
tion for membership is offered.
A special guest night is planned
for Monday, September 30, at 7:30
p.m. at the Cristobal Woman's Club
to infonn all guests of the purpose
of Sweet Adelines Inc. Refreshments
will be served.


The beauty of this year's Fair
Share emblem is lasting. The check-
mark with the golden glow may be
worn proudly during the Combined
Federal Campaign and long after as
costume jewelry.
A list of "Checklnark Club" mem-
bers will be published in the SPILL-
WAY during the campaign.


Bocas Fair

To Welcome

Big Crowds
A record number of visitors is
expected to attend the 6th annual
Bocas del Toro Fair which opens next
Thursday and continues through
Sunday. Major U.S. agencies in the
Canal Zone again will actively par-
ticipate in the fair.
The Panama Canal organization
will present a varied audiovisual dis-
play of movies and slides describing
the operation of the Panama Canal;
a pictorial exhibit explaining some
of the occupations to be found
within the organization; and music
every night by the incomparable
Lucho Azcirraga and his conjunto.
The burros, Mancha and Gato, will
provide free rides during the day for
youngsters.
"Toward a Better Panama" will
be the central theme of the U.S.
Southern Command exhibits. Army,
Navy, and Air Force components
will each provide an exhibit high-
lighting one aspect of the central
theme.
In addition, the USSOUTHCOM
will present sky-diving exhibitions
and judo matches and the Abou Saad
clown unit will perform, all of which
will be enjoyed several times through-
out the day by visitors to the fair.
Bocas del Toro is located 190 air
miles northwest of Panama City.

David Rose Named


Director of Posts


Balboa Postmaster David C. Rose
has been named as the new Director
of Posts in the Canal Zone, succeed-
ing the late Robert S. Herr.
Rose was born in Ancon, the son
of Col. and Mrs. Charles E. Rose.
His father played a prominent part
in the completion of the Panama
Canal, supervising the blowing up of
Gamboa dike which united the
Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Rose attended Canal Zone schools
and was graduated from St. Bernard
College, Cullman, Ala.
He entered the Canal Zone Postal
Service in March 1937, starting work
on the Panama Railroad trains as
railway mailclerk. At that time there
were no mailtrucks and the mail for
each Canal town was dropped off
and picked up at the town's station.
He entered the U.S. Navy in 1944
as Petty Officer First Class and was
stationed at Fort Amador. Upon re-
ceiving an honorable discharge, he
returned to the Postal Service and
was placed in charge of the 15th
Naval District Post Office at Fort
Amador.
Continuing up the promotion
ladder, he held various postal posi-
tions. He was named Postmaster of
Cristobal in 1965 and 2 years later
became Postmaster of Balboa.
Mrs. Rose, the former Mary Fran-
ces Murphy of Syracuse, N.Y., also
is a World War II veteran, with
service in the South Pacific as a U.S.
Army nurse. She now holds a posi-
tion as nurse supervisor at Gorgas
Hospital.
Mr. and Mrs. Rose have six chil-
dren: Beth and Charlene, who are
attending Canal Zone College;

Begins Work on

"Mission Xmas"

Volunteers of the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
are busy preparing 300 ditty bags-
their goal-which are to be filled with
a variety of small gifts and shipped
to servicemen and servicewomen in
South Vietnam.
American Red Cross field directors
in South Vietnam will distribute the
sturdy cloth ditty bags during the
Christmas season.
Cooperating with the "Mission
Christmas" program are the 8th Spe-
cial Forces Wives Club, Atlantic
Area Officers Wives Club, and Latin
American Students Wives Club, all
of Fort Gulick; Fort Clayton NCO
Wives Club, Balboa Lions Club, E. S.
Waid Unit No. 2, American Legion
Auxiliary, Cristobal, and Cain Bros.
Inc.
The bags are made of sturdy cotton
material and will be useful to the
servicemen and servicewomen after
the original contents are depleted.
Each bag contains a holiday greeting
with the names of the contributors
and the name of the Red Cross Chap-
ter. The items in the bag include
writing paper, pen, address books,
mailing size voice tapes, combs,
pocket games, plastic cigarette cases,
wash cloths, nail clips, and card cases.
The Canal Zone Chapter is one
of the nearly 1,400 American Red
Cross chapters working on the Christ-
mas project whose nationwide goal is
to make and fill at least 525,000 gift
ditty bags.

U.S. Power Squadrons


Teach Piloting, Safety


Water skiing is not in the cur-
riculum of the free piloting classes
offered by the U.S. Power Squadrons,
a private non-profit educational orga-
nization. But like other phases of
water sports, water skiing has a few
do's and don't for its participants and
is within the jurisdiction of Boating
Rules and Regulations.
When starting to pull a skier, the
towboat should start at idling speed
with the skier in the water. When the
towrope becomes fully extended, the
skier-now in a sitting position-
should yell "hit it" when he is ready.
The driver then applies full throttle
to the motor.
Recommended hand signals for
skiers are:
Slower: Palm down-motion
downward
Speed OK: The OK sign, with
thumb and forefinger making
an "O".
Faster: Palm up-motion up-
wards.
Stop: Hand up, fingers out-
stretched.
Cut Motor: Draw finger across
windpipe in cutting motion.
A tremendous responsibility lies
with the operator of a boat pulling
a skier. Make wide turns whenever
possible. If a sharp turn must be
made, be sure the skier will not be
on the inside of the turn. Wait for
him to return to the wake. If he is
on the inside, he will sink in the water
because of lack of speed, only to have
the towrope pulled from his hands
when the line finally straightens out.
A water skier appreciates a safe,
smooth ride.
A skier being towed may be up to
75 feet behind the operator of the
boat, so it is important to keep clear
of other boats and obstacles. And a
boat should never turn in front of an
oncoming vessel.
Always have a second person in
the boat watching the skier. To pick
up a fallen skier, approach at idling
speed and make a lazy half turn
around him. The towline will float
directly into his hands. Be sure the
motor is in neutral or shut off
altogether when taking the skier back
on board.
If the skier is spilled, he should
watch for an approaching boat and
splash as hard as possible to be seen.

The automobile has replaced the
horse, but if you must drive, stay on
the wagon.


Sometimes it is difficult to see a
bobbing head in the waves, and a
prop going 4800 r.p.m. is a dangerous
weapon slicing through the waters.
Towropes should be run through
special eye bolts installed in the
transom. Never use the outboard
clamps as a temporary substitute, but
use special bolts.
Safe boating through education is
the basis of the U.S. Power Squad-
rons. Free classes start Monday, Sep-
tember 9 at 7 p.m. at the Panama
Canal Training Center in Balboa. It is
not necessary to be a boat owner to
attend.


BROUSIIlG

COLLECTIOn
By Emily J. Price

Women who are interested in
clothes will be both fascinated and
repelled by The Fashion Makers. This
is a photographic record by Walter
Vecchio, with text by Robert Riley,
of the fashion industry from the Paris
openings to the bitter end of a sale
in Filene's basement. No aspect of
the fabulous garment industry is
slighted. Pictures show the creations
of student designers and operations
of the specialty stores Bergdorf
Goodman and I. Magnin, and the
clothes range from horrible to
glorious.
Dervla Murphy is a young Irish-
woman who traveled from Ireland to
India in 1963-by bicycle. While
resting from her journey she became
involved with the plight of Tibetan
refugees in India, especially a thou-
sand children in nursery camps. Her
affection for these "Tiblets" led her
to resume her journey to visit adult
Tibetan refugees in out-of-the-way
areas in the Himalayas. Her observ-
ant eye and spontaneous manner of
writing make her account of this
journey, Tibetan Foothold, well worth
reading.
The Wind Blows Free by Vian
Smith is an engrossing English novel
of life on Dartmoor during the 19th
century. It tells the story of two fam-
ilies-one noble, one commoner, and
describes what the Enclosure Act
meant to a way of life that had lasted
for 600 years.

Military writer Arch Whitehouse in
Fighting Ships discusses the evolu-
tion of the modern war fleet from
the galleys of Greece and Rome to
the Nuclear Navy. Popularly written
for everyone's enjoyment, the author's
background as a fighter pilot enables
him to write knowledgeably about the
naval campaigns of World War II
and the revolution in fleet components
in the past 20 years.
A suspense-filled yarn is Henrietta
Who? by Catherine Aird. Henrietta
is shocked by the murder of her
mother who turns out not to have
been her mother at all. The double
search for identity and a criminal
makes a well plotted mystery story.

With fire in his eyes and fangs
flashing, the cornered beast snarled
at its tormentors. Backing into a
corner, it braced itself for a final stand
against monstruous odds. The great
white hunter, with caution born of
bitter experience, closed in on his
prey.
Suddenly, the huge grey beast
broke and ran in a desperate bid for
freedom. The hunter didn't flinch. In
the face of this final assault, he struck
the death blow.
"Got him," yelled Jerry Fleming.
"My hero," cooed Norma Lanuza.
"Oh, mi6rcoles," I groaned, as
I walked out of the Graphic Branch
right after they killed the mouse,
"you'd think you were in Kenya on
safari." (It's like I've been telling
.those photographers all along: If you
have to say anything at all when
you take a picture, why say-
"CHEESE"?)
Sa ca Household hint for the meticulous
mother: If you don't know what to
do about your 10-year-old son who,
despite your frequent admonitions,
goes around with his shirttails hang-
ing out instead of neatly tucked into
his trousers, try sewing a few inches
of dainty lace around the bottom of
each shirt. If this doesn't work, you'd
better buy him a guitar, lady, because
it means he's fashion-conscious.

Quick Thinking


Earns Special


Acts Awards
A Special Acts Award, signed by
Gov. W. P. Leber, and a check for
$100 each went to Carlos Francis-
co G. and Vernon I. Johns, two tem-
porary Panamanian employees of the
Locks Division whose quick think-
ing and prompt action prevented a
possible fatal accident at Miraflores
Locks, July 3.
The awards and the checks were
presented to the two men by Capt.
Donald A. Dertien, USN, Marine Di-
rector, in a ceremony at the Mira-
florcs Locks Theater in the presence
of the Acting Chief of the Locks
Division R. J. Danielson and a num-
her of their coworkers.
The near accident occurred when
Victor Torres, employed as a tem-
porary painter, secured his safety line
to a link in the fender chain prepar-
ing to place a scallold in the chain
pit, when the chain was accidentally
put into motion. \Vithout hesitation,
Johns and Francisco grabbed Torres,
broke the line and pulled him to
safety.
The certificate accompanying the
cash award commended Johns and
Francisco for saving Torres from a
very serious, possibly fatal, fall into
the machinery or onto the steel plat-
fonr below. "The action taken is
highly comniendable, "the Governor
said, "and I wish to extend to you
my personal thanks."

had by all those attending when they
reviewed mementos from the Canal
Zone. Among those mementos were
the first issue of the Panama Canal
Review (thank you, girls!) and that
rare item-a commissary coupon book.
Members present included Mildred
Neely, Marion Greene, Maxine Hitch-
cock, Madge Hall, Fran Orvis, Jeanne
Burgoon, Jay Cain, and Ruth Stroop.


Lou Reyes and Bobby Lopez were
fighting their way through a scream-
ing mob of autograph hunters at the
Canal Zone College. I finally managed
to steer them into an empty class-
room where they could find some
respite from the idolizing throng, but
not before Bob had lost part of his
shirt, and Lou had been relieved of
his left coat sleeve, his Mickey Mouse
hat, and his wallet.
"Fellah," I asked, "what's the
reason for your immense popularity
with the college crowd?"
"Well," Bob replied, "since we
work full-time and only go to school
part-time, we end up coming to class
in coats and ties all the time."
"That's right, Bob," said Lou, who
was perched on the edge of a desk,
"so, since we're different from the
rest of the students, they've made us
their idols. I see it as a sign of the
times."
I was skeptical: "I thought the
only signs of the times that interest
college folk these days were protest
signs."
"Not here at CZC," Bob answered.
"Last year's idols were the guys who
were going to college in the States.
They made a big thing about the
equipment they would need for col-
lege life up there-helmets, gas masks,
poster paint, and so forth . ."
"But this year, we're it," com-
mented Lou. "In fact, there's talk of
banning all last year's idols from this
campus, since they're Not What's
Happening and we don't want them
to give us a bad name."
"Do you mean to say that you
fellahs don't want any competition on
this campus?", I asked.
"Man, we don't HAVE any com-
petition," Bob answered. "The last
guy who wanted to protest here
wound up so frustrated that he went
to a college in the States. But he had
delusions of grandeur and got carried
away in his protesting, so he won't
be around for a couple of semesters,
at least."
I ventured a final question: "I guess
you mean that he burned his draft
card-Right?"
Lou and Bob smirked as they both
both chimed in with the reply:
"No, man. He burned his draft
board."
I see this as a sign of the times,
and I guess things could get worse-
in the States. But at Canal Zone Col-
lege, things are definitely getting
better.

Johnny, age 7, came home from his
first day in school last week and
prmodly announced to his mother:
"I can spell 'rat'-R-A-T!"
"Why, that's very good, Johnny,"
said his beaming mother. "And how
do you spell 'mouse'?"
Johnny looked worried for a
nionimt, then indignantly replied:

Two Panama Canal employees,
each with more than half a century's
service, headed the list of those
who received their retirement cer-
tificates front Cov. W. P. Leher in
a ceremony in the Board Room of
the Administration Building, Balboa
Heights, last week.
These two are Edwin Collins, a
native of Jamaica, leader exter-
ininator in the Sanitation Division,
whose Canal service totaled 52 years,
11 months, and 6 days, and Algon
V. Herdman, also a native of Jamai-
ca, employed as leader, water service-
man in the Terminals Division, whose
Canal service added up to 51 years,
7 months, 8 days.
Governor Leber stated he was
impressed to know the Canal organi-
zation has employees with such long
fine careers. The Canal, he said,
hadn't been open very long before
these two men came to work for
the organization. Then the Locks
were the largest in the world. No
ship was too big to transit in 1914
and even in 1939 the transit of the
Bremen was a big event.
Now, every day, said Governor
Leber, ships bigger than the Bremen
transit. He said lie doubted that any-
one, in 1920, would foresee that 65
oceangoing vessels a day would
transit the Canal-but that number
has been handled in a day's work.
"Ships don't go through the Canal
by themselves," said Governor Leber,
as he paid tribute to the Panama
Canal employees who have kept ad-
vancing, learning new crafts, keep-
ing up with growing world com-
merce and attendant greater use of
the Canal.
He congratulated the retiring em-
ployees and wished each one good
luck. Governor Leber presented each
retiring employee with the Panama
Canal retirement certificate, while
each employee's Bureau Director
added personal congratulations.
Those who retired from Canal
service, with their places of employ-
inent and years of U.S. Government
service, are as follows:
Harry J. Ailant, Truck Driver (Heavy
Trailer), Motor Transportation Di-
vision, Pacific side: 40 years, 8

Collins y Herdman Fueron


Decanos de los Jubilados


Dos empleados del Canal de Pa-
namad, cada uno de ellos con mais de
medio siglo de servicio, encabezaban
la lista de los que recibieron sus cer-
tificados de jubilaci6n de manos del
Cobernador W. P. Leber en una
ceremonia que tuvo lugar en el Sal6n
de Reuniones del Edificio de Admi-
nistraci6n, en Balboa Heights, la
semana pasada.
Fueron ellos Edwin Collins, na-
cido en Jamaica, capataz extermina-
dor en la Divisi6n de Sanidad, con
52 aiios, 11 meses y 6 dias al servicio
del Canal, y Algon V. Herdman, tam-
bien de Jamaica, capataz encargado
de abastecer de agua a buques en
trinsito, de la Divisi6n de Termina-
les, con un servicio al Canal de 51
aiios, 7 meses, 8 dias.
El Gobernador Leber declare que
estaba impresionado al comprobar
que el Canal contaba con empleados
con tan magnifico servicio. Dijo que
el Canal no tenia much tiempo de
abierto cuando ellos vinieron a tra-
bajar. En aquel tiempo las esclusas
eran las mias grande del mundo. No
habia ningin barco demasiado gran-
de para el Canal en 1914, y aiin en
1939, el paso del Bremen fue un
gtran event.
"Ahora, todos los dias", dijo el
Cobernador Leber, "transitan el
Canal buques mais grande que el
Bremen". Dijo que dudaba que al-
guien, en 1920, hubiera previsto que
alguin dia transitarian el Canal 65
naves en 24 horas, pero ello ha suce-
lido.


"Los barcos no transitan solos el
Canal", dijo el Goberador Leber al
rendir tribute a los empleados del
Canal de PanamA que lo han man-
tenido, sienipre mejorando, siempre
aprendiendo nuevos oficios, siempre

Audley Webster, Jr., en el papel de Mario, y Lucia Bennett como Flora, en
la Escena Segunda de la Obra "Nuestra Natacha" de Alejandro Casona. Mario,
estudiante de ciencias, prepare su tesis de graduaci6n mientras Flora, su
novia y compafiera de classes, se le acerca para recordarle dulcemente que
ella existe. De espaldas, y muy interesados en la escena, aparecen Ellis Faw-
cett, Supervisor de las Escuelas Latinoamericanas y George Richards, Director
de la Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso.



Inauguran Teatro en



Escuela de Paraiso


Con el estreno de "Nuestra Nata-
cha", de Alejandro Casona, se inau-
gur6 recientemente el Pequefio Tea-
tro Casona en la Escuela Secundaria
de Paraiso.
La idea de este teatro surgi6 de la
necesidad de que los estudiantes se
expresen con mayor fluidez en espa-
fiol, corrijan la pronunciaci6n de algu-
nas consonantes y amplien su vocabu-
lario al tropezar con nuevas palabras
que exigen el uso del diccionario.
El proyecto de acondicionamiento
de un sal6n de classes lo realizaron
totalmente los estudiantes. Jaime Ro-
driguez se encarg6 de pintar las esce-
nas de la obra y Jacinto French fue el
director de la construcci6n. Las estu-
diantes del bello sexo confeccionaron


tor Alejandro Casona, fallecido en
1965.
Este scenario, construido por estu-
diantes de la clase de espafiol del
grado 11, no serA de su uso exclusive.
EstarA abierto para todos los demAs
salones que deseen presentar obras
en espafiol o ingles que esten dentro
de sus programs.
En el acto de inauguraci6n estu-
vieron presents la Sra. Laura de
P6rez, profesora de espafiol del grado
11; el Profesor George Richards, Di-
rector de la Escuela Secundaria de
Paraiso; Ellis Fawcett, Supervisor de
las Escuelas Latinoamericanas; la
Profesora Ruby Williams, Coordina-
dora del Departamento de Ingl6s y
la Sra. Ana Botello de Forero, Biblio-
tecaria de Paraiso.

Hijo de Empleado del Canal


Es un Magnifico Escultor


Mauricio Dogu6, joven panamefio
de 20 ailos, es quizas el inico escul-
tor de miniaturas de la familiar del
Canal de PanamA.
Reside con sus padres, FMlix Do-
gu6 y Sra. Ruby Price de Dogue, en
una quieta secci6n de la ciudad de
Col6n, en Calle 9 y Santa Isabel.
Se gradu6 recientemente de Me-
canico de Refrigeraci6n y Aire Acon-
dicionado en el Instituto Rodolfo
Diesel de la ciudad de Panama. Sus
studios primaries los hizo en la
ciudad de Col6n.
Pero su principal afici6n, desde que
cumpli6 los 16 arios, ha sido dedi-
carse a efectuar esculturas en minia-
tura, que modela con pedazos de tiza
de la que se usa en las aulas escolares.
Con el pasar de los afios ha ido per-
feccionAndose en este arte y despu6s
de su graduaci6n se ha convertido en
la ocupaci6n permanent de todos sus
mementos desocupados, llegando a
dominar este dificil arte de manera
que sus esculturas Ilaman la atenci6n
en los diferentes planteles educativos
done las ha exhibido.
Colocadas nitidamente en cajas rec-
tangulares con paredes de vidrio para
que puedan ser vistas y examinadas
ficilmente, Mauricio Dogue posee ya
59 miniatures con las efigies de hom-
bres famosos de la historic de la hu-
manidad, como Abraham Lincoln,
John F. Kennedy, su hermano Robert,
el Dr. Martin Luther King, Winston
Churchill y otros muchos. Tambi4n
posee en su vasta colecci6n, tipos de
las diferentes razas humans que
habitan el planeta.


junto con las pequefias vidrieras don-
de ha colocado sus microesculturas,
expone tambien un catilogo nume-
rado por medio del cual se pueden
identificar fAcilmente cada una de
ellas. Exhibe ademrs, conjuntamente,
las herramientas que utiliza en su
labor: varias agujas de coser, una fina
hoja de afeitar y pedacitos de algo-
d6n, con los que suaviza los rasgos
de sus esculturas.
Ha exhibido su trabajo en el Cole-
gio San Jose de Col6n, donde hizo
studios durante algunos ailos de la
escuela primaria; en el Colegio JosC
Guardia Vega, tambien de la ciudad
de Col6n; en la Universidad de la
Zona del Canal, en La Boca; en el
Club de Jardineria de Pat Morgan y
en el Institute Panamericano de la
ciudad de Panama.
Los planes del oven escultor son,
por ahora, seguir studios superiors
posiblemente en arte, pero mientras
se cunplen sus deseos, dedica to-
dos sus esfuerzos a perfeccionar sus
esculturas.
Su padre, FMlix Dogu6, tiene mas
de 24 anos de servicios con el Canal
de PanamA, repartidos entire la Divi-
si1n de Ferrocarril, la Divisi6n de
Terminales del sector Atlintico y la
Division Industrial, donde actualmen-
te trabaja como oficinista y done
goza del aprecio de todos sus com-
paiceros.

Dice Pope, el excelente poeta, que
"el orden es la primera ley del cielo".
No es que pretendamos que esta
COCTELERA se compare con el cielo,
ni much menos. (En tal caso, la com-
paraci6n con el limbo estaria mis
acertada, por lo despistados que anda-
mos la mayoria del tiempo.) Si nos
hemos acordado de la sentenciosa
frase, ha sido a causa de ver que tene-
mos la mesa atestada de papeles sin
ningiln orden, con varies datos sobre
casos, casas y cosas (incluyendo tam-
biin algunos quesos) que queremos
poner hoy a la consideraci6n de uste-
des. Y como por lo general lo mejor
es empezar por el principio, arreme-
timosle por ahi.

6Que opinan ustedes de la gente
supersticiosa? Se lo preguntamos,
pues hay quienes creen que los martes
son dias de mala suerte. Pero para
esta gente, si un martes, ademfis de
ser martes, es 13, la cosa adquiere
proporciones catastr6ficas, y es como
para no salir de la casa pues hay grave
riesgo de tropezarse con un 'gato
negro, o pasar debajo de una escalera.
No obstante todas estas negras y som-
brias .consideraciones, deberian uste-
des saber que el pasado 13 de agosto
fue martes trece, y que dos personas
que ustedes conocen y estiman cele-
braban ese dia su cumpleafios por
coincidencia. Y por coincidencia tam-
bi6n, se encontraban almorzando
juntos, con otros amigos en la Cafete-
ria del Edificio de Administraci6n.
Son nada menos que la guapa Anita
Arenas, eficiente y amable funciona-
ria de la Secci6n de Contabilidad de
Planta, y el dinnmico Ram6n Almen-
gor, quien labor con todo entusiasmo
y 4xito en la Oficina de Informaci6n.
Les hacemos legar un cordial saludo,
muy despojado de supersticiones, y,
por el contrario, cargado de buenos
augurios.

Y, para aprovechar que hemos
amanecido tan sociables, dmmosle
tambi un n efusivo saludo, en este
caso de bienvenida, a Felipa Resales
de Tom, quien por varies alios labor
para una important empresa pana-
nefia, primero como auditor y luego
ccmno jefa de contabilidad. En la
actualidad, se encuentra prestando sus
servicios profesionales en la empresa
del Canal, a cuyas filas ha ingresado
recientemente, ganandose muy pron-
to el aprecio de todos, en especial de
sus compaileros de la Oficina del Con-
tralor. Felipa esti casada con el popu-
lar Fifi Tom, muy conocido y esti-
mado en todos los circulos deporti-
vos y sociales. Fifi administra con
much acierto la empresa "Bolera-
ma", que se ha convertido en el "ren-
dezvous" deportivo de la ciudad capi-
tal. Carla Tom, la primog6nita de Fe-
lipa y Fifi, cursa la carrera de Econo-
mia en la Universidad de Panama,

madre, quien tambi6n es egresada de

Ahora hablemos en serio: leimos en

de los males que aquejan a este con-
fundido planet tienen sus raices en
que se parte del postulado falso de
que de dos opinions opuestas, una
tiene que estar errada, pues dos cosas
no pueden ser verdad a la vez. Y aria-
dia que el problema radical en que no
tenemos el sentido comnln de ver que
ambas opinions pueden estar erra-
das, y que es absurd pensar que de
dos puntos de vista opuestos, uno
tiene que ser cierto y el otro falso.

muy bien.

Los Padres de Familia

De Santa Cruz Erigen

Monumento al Libro
"Un Libro Abierto es Fuente del
Saber", "An Open Book Is a Foun-
tain of Knowledge" es el pensamiento
en'espafiol e inglis que lleva el monu-
mento al libro, que fue descubierto
en Santa Cruz en reciente ceremonial.
Este monument fue el resultado
del esfuerzo conjunto del Club de
Padres de Familia y de los maestros y
alumnos de la Escuela Primaria de
Santa Cruz.
La idea surgi6 del Club de Padres
de Familia. Se hizo un concurso centre
los estudiantes y Carlos Duncan resul-
t6 con la idea triunfadora de colocar
un libro con el mencionado pensa-
miento. Por esta brillante idea se le
otorg6 un premio en efectivo.
En la ceremonia de inauguraci6n,
el coro de la escuela dirigido por la
Sra. Icilyn de Morrison cant6 el Him-
no al Libro. Joseph French, en repre-
sentaci6n de la comunidad, hizo un
recuento de como se habia llevado a
feliz realizaci6n el proyecto. La Srta.
Idalia Salamanca recit6 el poema
El Libro. Luego Alfred Osborne,
Ayudante del Superintendente de la
Division de Escuelas, habl6 en repre-
sentaci6n de esa division. Finalmente
la Srta. Ana Teresa Bennett, Espo-
cialista en Ingl6s en las Escuelas Lati-
noamericanas y Directora de la Es-
cuela Primaria de Santa Cruz al idear-
se el proyecto, descubri6 el monu-
mento.
