Is Closed
The Canal Zone Veterans Admin-

matters concerning local veterans'
affairs now will be handled by the
Veterans Administration office in
Washington, D.C.
Located on the second floor of the
Balboa Service Center, the office was
headed by Francis Deignan, repre-
sentative of the Veterans Administra-
tion in the Canal Zone, who is retiring

The Veterans Administration Office
in the Canal Zone was opened in
1947 to provide information and
assistance on veterans' benefits to
veterans and their dependents and
survivors residing in the area. In
recent years, according to the Vet-
erans Administration, the number of
veterans in the Canal Zone has
decreased significantly, with a cor-
responding decrease in workload.
The need for the personalized type
of service formerly provided has
reached the point where continued
operation of the Canal Zone office
is not warranted.
Hereafter, it will be necessary for
veterans residing on the Isthmus to
obtain information concerning vet-
erans affairs through direct corres-
pondence with the Veterans Admin-
istration Office in Washington, D.C.

in developing and improving their understanding and
know-how of the currently most significant Federal
position classification subjects.

The Story of Football by Robert
Leckie traces the development of
the exciting sport from a disorgan-
ized free-for-all to the complex game
we know today. Crammed with
photographs and anecdotes, the book
shows how professional football grew
out of the college sport and vividly
re-creates the traditional rivalries,
the famous stars and the great games
that have combined to make football
"the autumn fever."
Agatha Christie manages to do
many things better than most other
mystery writers. Now a reissue of
three old novels about espionage
proves that she can tell a spy story
with the best. The title of the new
assembly is Spies Among Us and the
novels included are "They Came to
Baghdad," "N or M?", and "Murder
Sin Mesopotamia." It's great for
Reading or re-reading.
Abigail Adams Homans is a mem-
ber of one of America's great fam-
ilies, a great-great granddaughter of
President John Adams. In her amus-
-ing little book, Education by Uncles
she tells about her girlhood in


~`~B~'~ ~_1



Quincy, Mass., and the visits and
travels with her brilliant and strong-
minded relatives, especially her
famous uncles, Henry and Brooks
Adams. Mrs. Homans says that the
times which she remembers are "as
dead as the Dodo," but they come
happily to life in her book.
Psychic People is the title of a
book by Eleanor Touhey Smith. It
consists of sketches of various in-
dividuals whose strange experiences
have neither been exposed as spuri-
ous nor satisfactorily explained by
scientific means. They include pre-
cognition, miraculous healing, pol-
tergeists, and reincarnation. The
result is provocative reading for both
believer and skeptic.
A war novel set in Burma during
World War II is Patrick Turnbull's
One Bullet For The General. A small
band of men is given orders to infil-
trate Japanese lines and assassinate
an enemy general. The book has
interesting characters and convincing
atmosphere. Some readers might
like more action and less moralizing.

manner of signs describing the win-
ning number. But first, I had to figure
out what the signs meant.
In my dream, I saw my car-MY
car-nearly totaled, with a police-
man standing beside the pile, cackling
as he tried to give me a ticket. I say,
"tried" because I was trapped inside
the glove compartment. Then, that
part of the dream faded.
In the second phase, I was on a
conveyor belt in the Post Office,
wrapped inside a parcel post package.
I was hollering to attract attention so
someone would unravel me. Finally,
Fred Lee pulled the package off the
conveyor belt and asked Bob Best,
"Hey, did you hear something?"
"Yeah," Bob said. "It sounded like
it came from inside that package."
Fred shook the package (it wasn't
easy). "Do you think we should
open it?"
"Can't," Bob answered. "It says,
'Do Not Open Until Xmas.':'
Before Christmas could arrive,
I woke up. Immediately, I started
deciphering the dream to pinpoint
my lucky number. I took the license
of my car, added the badge number
of the policeman, and subtracted the
diameter of the glove compartment.
Then, I took the total of Fred and
Bob's ages, multiplied that by 25
(Christmas Day, you know), and
added it to the first figure. The
resulting number was 4651.
The rest, of course, is history.,
Sunday came, the lottery played, and
the first prize was-some abomination
other than 4651. (Freud is a double-

Once upon a time, there was a

she would bake delicious cakes. See

the cakes at home, at school, and at
work. Eat, eat, eat. Tom loves cake.
One day, Sheilah's fairy God-
mother, Karen, told us Sheilah was
working on the most beautiful cake
she'd ever baked. It was white, and
had seven layers, and right up on
top it had two cute little dolls. One
doll was a girl that looked just like

C.Z. Youth Wins

Navy Plaudits

Michael E. LeBrun, son of Mr.
and Mrs. William E. LeBrun of Bal-
boa Heights, was selected as U.S.S.
Cacapon Petty Officer of the Month
for the month of April 1968, accord-
ing to a letter received from Capt.
Fred C. Watson, USN, Commanding
Officer of the U.S.S. Cacapon.
The ship's selection board chose
him for this coveted award from
among the 80 other eligible Petty
Officers for his outstanding profes-
sional performance, his fine military
behavior, his superior adaptability,
his consistent smartness of appear-
ance and his outstanding contribu-
tion to the morale of the Ship's
Supply Division, according to Cap-
tain Watson.
In addition to the honor attendant
with this selection Michael enjoyed
certain privileges which included a
special 72-hour liberty.
Captain Watson's letter to the
LeBruns said: "'This award is one
way by which we on Cacapon can
reward the outstanding men for a
fob well done, and your Michael
truly deserves this credit. His hours
of work have been lonm in the last
year but his work ias been con-
sistenitly o(uttanding. His diligent
manner of workmanship is a credit
to his conscientiousness. His cheer-
fulness, detirei to perforni well and

willingness to work hard inspire all
those around him. He is a real asset
to this ship and to the U.S. Navy."
Michael LeBrun received the
American Spirit Medal as one of two
most outstanding recruits out of 650
members of the graduating com-
panies at the U.S. Naval Training
Center in San Diego, Calif., in
June 1966.
A graduate of Balboa Iligh School,
he attended Rice University in
Houston, Tex., for 1 year where he
studied electronic engineering and
was active in freshman basketball.
He returned to the Isthnus and
attended Canal Zone College before
he joined the Naval Reserve in Sep-
tember 1963. lHe went into active
duty service on March 25, 1966.

The Porrellos' three other children
are: Robert Allen, stationed with the
U.S. Navy at Bainbridge, Md., Lt.
Richard Dennis, with the Marine
Corps at Quantico, Va.; and a
daughter, Mary Anne, who is attend-
ing the Lawrence Memorial and
Mitchell Nursing College at New
London, Conn.
Porrello had an unusual experience
shortly after his arrival in the Canal
Zone. Working only a few doors
away from the Safety Branch is Les
Fennel of the Meteorological and
HIydrographic Branch who, during
World War II was a fellow prisoner
of the Japanese in the Philippines.
They had not met since those dark
days until they ran into one another
in the Administration Building, Bal-
boa Heights, where a nostalgic
reunion took place.
Prior to late 1941, the time of his
capture by the Japanese in the Philip-
pines, Porrello had served for some
years in U.S. submarines attached to
the Asiatic fleet.
Following the war, he entered
civil service and worked as a leading
man machinist at the Submarine
Base, New London, Conn., and later
as Submarine Inspector, Polaris Sub-
marines, at the Electric Boat Co. IIe
rose to Administrative Assistant at
the Electric Boat Co. before he
transferred to Guantanamo.
Porrello holds the Secretary of the
Navy's Meritorious Award.

cabellada: "vivamos el present, que
el ayer y el manana no existen". Y ya
que estamos citando, ,no les parece
que en este mundo a veces tan som-
brio a causa de que no nos tomnamos

iSonria! NNo hay acaso cosas peo-
res que tener que leer esta column?
"Claro que si", respond yo por us-
tedes, ya que a ustedes se les hace
un poquito dificil que los oiga yo
desde aqui. Claro que hay cosas
peores. Como por ejemplo coger un
"flat" cuando andamos de "dinner-
jacket". O enfermarse el Martes de
Carnaval. O pasarse las Navidades
con indigestion. O equivocarnos en
un velorio y felicitar al duefio del
muerto, en vez de darle el p&same.
Y es que a veces nos quejamos de
tener que conformarnos con almor-
zar un guineo, sin darnos cuenta de
que el que viene detrAs de nosotros
tiene que transar por comerse la
cascara. Como dicen por ahi, pen-
samos que "cualquier tiempo pasado
fue mejor". Nos preguntaba un lec-
tor de esta COCTELERA que por qu6
somos tan aficionados a los refranes.
Y le respondemos citando a Luis
Martinez Kleiser, genial recopilador
del refranero espafiol, que dice que
"los concepts despectivos con que
se definen a veces los refranes nacen
del poco crbdito que se concede al
pueblo, su author. Y afiade: "En los
talleres del pueblo fuerpn elabora-
dos los refranes; encierran un cuerpo
de doctrine que no fue elaborado en
las aulas de ningi6n centro universi-
tario; pretenden aleccionarnos sin ti-
tulo ni birrete; brotaron frente a las
brasas de un hogar pueblerino, sobre
los surcos de un arado, bajo el teja-
dillo ruinoso de un atrio parroquial;
huelen a romero y a tomillo . ."
Kleiser recopil6 65.083 refranes; today
la sabiduria del pueblo proclamada
con un lenguaje elemental, pero
siempre portico, a travbs de largas
centuries de contemplaci6n.

Amigos, permitannos ustedes refe-

indiscutiblemente una de las perso-'
nalidades mAs descollantes en el
PanamA de hoy en dia. Ademis de
sus extraordinarias dotes de consu-

mado en numerosos conciertos no
s6lo en el pais, sino en el exterior,
es el coraz6n y motor de la Asocia-
ci6n de Conciertos, que con dxito sin
precedents esti celebrando su 7'
Temporada. Ingram es una de las
personas que hay que scfialar como
gestores del renacimiento artistic
que experiment Panama. A trav6s
de sus actividades en pro de la cul-
tura, ha conseguido llevar adelante la
presentaci6n de especticulos de gran
jerarquia artistic. Con celo y desin-

con tanto acierto preside, ha presen-
tado desde su fundaci6n en 1962 ar-
tistas de estatura en todos los g&ne-
ros, incluyendo pianistas de la talla
de Jos6 Iturbi, Jacques Klein y
Fou T'Song; conjuntos instrumenta-

orquestas sinf6nicas, el fabuloso
Ballet Beriozca y el mundialmente

iReglas de Seguridad?

Es un hecho reconocido que a nadie le gusta vivir siguiendo reglas pre-
establecidas. Todos nos creemos lo suficientemente inteligentes como para
hacer lo que debemos sin que nadie tenga que indicirnoslo paso a paso.
En muchos casos lo dicho anterionrente es correct. La mayoria de las
personas son lo suficientemente inteligentes como para hacer lo que corres-
ponde la mayoria de las veces. Pero todos alguna vez tenemos bloques
mentales que nos hacen actuar en el trabajo en una forma que nosotros
mismols nos reprochariamos posteriormente. Y esto se aplica a todos. Algunas

Pepe nos dice:

Las apariencias enganan

"EN LA CONFIANZA ESTA EL PELIGRO", dice Pepe, y quien no se mantenga
alerta, tendri que atenerse a las consecuencias. Como ilustraci6n, Pepe nos
cuenta lo que le pas6 a un conocido suyo, Oscar Hidalgo, a quien visitara re-
cientemente en una pequefia poblacion del medio oeste norteamericano.
Hidalgo conducia su autonmvil por una carretera siguiendo fielmente las
reglas del trAnsito y admirando el paisaje, cuando llego a un paso a nivel
con destellador de sefiales automAtico. Aunque las sefiales no indicaban la
presencia de un tren, en vez de lanzarse a gian velocidad antes de que "em-
pezaran a destellar", Hidalgo disminuyo la velocidad de su autonmvil, casi
por instinto, segin se iba acercando al cruce. iCual no serial su asombro al
ver de subito que un tren Ie cortaba el paso! Sin perder la calma, fren6 en
seguida y gracias a que 61 mancjaba a poca velocidad y a que el pavimento
estaba seco, pudo parar el autonmvil a tiempo para evitar in choque. Al no
confiarse completamente a las seiiales automriticas que le indicaban una via
libre, no tuvo que lamentar un choque que pudo haberle costado la vida o
una incapacitaci6n permanent.
Es esta precauci6n extra la que puede protegernos contra los errors de los
demAs o las falls de los equipos. Por eso, bien vale la pena ser precavido y
no confiar ciegamente en las apariencias.
Y, para Hidalgo, esa expcriencia le ensefit una leccion que nunca olvidara.
De ahora en adelante no se confia, deja que el instinto lo guide y se prepara
para star en condiciones de hacerle frente a cualquier eventualidad*
