T. Jones, Director of the Trans-
portation and Terminals Bureau,
handed out the awards on the

oline outlets be installed at the end

an extra berth for marine bunker-
ing. The estimated benefit from
this suggestion is $2,000 annually.
The other $125 award went to

istrative Services Division, for an

istration hours will be from 7:30
a.m. to 3 p.m.
New students who wish to attend
on a full-time basis must have

ation. However, students who have

tion, and the official transcript may

Direct Current Combo
The Direct Current Combo will
.
make >ts first appearance at the
Balboa Teen Club and play for the
dancing crowd tonight from 7:30
to 11:30.


The fenders worked so well that
the program was expanded and
now includes installation of 15-foot
lengths of rubber on the center
approach walls; and reconstruction
of the approach wall crib fenders
to include rubber fendering and
improvement of the original wing-
wall knuckle fenders.
When completed, Marine Bureau
officials believe the system will offer
improved protection for ships.


Cheerleadmsg Conventioneers


The work of equipping the Pan-
ama Canal Locks with rubber fend-
ers which started in 1960 at Gatun
Locks, is now 75 percent com-
pleted. It is one of a series of pro-
jects planned by the Marine Bureau
to improve service and speed up
ship transit through the waterway.
The work is now in progress at
Pedro Miguel.
The fenders are designed to min-
imize damage to ships should they
hit the approach walls or wingwall
"knuckles." In each set of looks,
they are being installed in the tail-
bay, or the lower end of the locks
lane, and the forebay, which is
the upper portion, from the chain
fender area back to the first set of
lock gates,
The first fenders to be installed
were curved rectangular sections of
the molded rubber placed on the
lock knuckles, the region considered
most hazardous.

The Godfather by Mario Puzo is
an extraordinary novel of strong
characters and dramatic incidents.
The central figure, the godfather,
is apparently a kindly, reasonable
man and at the same time the most
dreaded of the chiefs of the Mafia.
The entire feudal structure of the
underworld society is brought to
light in startling detail. The book
is an overwhelming reading expe-

Astronomical Objects for South-
ern Telescopes is a handbook for
amateur astronomers by E. J. Har-
tung, a former professor of chemis-
try at the University of Melbourne,
Australia. His observations and de-
script:ons of the southern heavens
are applicable in the latitude of
the Canal Zone also. His book
assumes that the reader has some
knowledge of astronomy and access
to a small telescope, but even with-
out these his accounts of nebulae
and variable and binary stars are
informative and fascinating.
Flashback is a mystery by Roger
Dooley. Joel Goodman, staff writer
for a film magazine, receives an
unexpected phone call from a once
famous leading man of the silent
screen. Intrigued by the prospect
of uncovering an old scandal, Joel
visits the man only to find a dead

fashion. Cleaning, equipping the

among the topics.
Brian Glanville's novel The

Londoner who runs the mile, at
first just for the fun of it, and then
under the driving influence of a

White also will visit the Procure-
ment Div:sion in New Orleans to

tion of pattern movement from the
Canal Zone to United States sup-
pliers and then on to the pattern
depository in Scranton.
Born in Colon, White is a grad-
uate of Rainbow City High School

through her friend Capt. C. J. Cun-
derson, assistant port captain in
Balboa, who also is taking flying
lessons. Because she works in shifts,
it was no problem for her to take
lessons during the early hours of
the day when she felt rested. But
her rapid elevation to the ranks of
solo pilot came as a surprise to the
Gundersons.
Her biggest thrill, outside of get-
ting a pilot's license, was the mes-
sage of congratulation from her son
John W. Ryan, who works as an
engineer at Pratt Whitney in East
Hartford, Conn. He told his mother
that he still didn't believe it but he
had to admit that she had a lot
more courage than he had.


There aren't many flying grand-
mothers around the Isthmus these
days. In fact, Mrs. Lillian Ryan,
Panama Canal telephone operator
supervisor may be the only one.
Mrs. Ryan became eligible for
this distinction a short time ago
when she made her first solo flight
in a one-engine Cessna 150 plane
and passed her test for a solo flight
permit.
She started taking lessons only
4 months ago as the pupil of Vernal
Henry, Panama Canal fireman, who
also is one of the trained instructors
working for Aviones de Pananni, a
flying school at Paitilla Airport
owned and operated by Lito Ben-
nett and his brother Capt. John
Bennett.
After only 15 hours of instruc-
tion, she passed her solo test with
flying colors on her first try and
was promptly doused with every-
thing from beer to diesel oil-the
traditional initiation of all new
pilots,

and fair winds to unfair winds,
plagued by leaks, broken mizzen

The Fri, whose name is to be

wooden hulled two-masted ketch
built in Denmark in 1912. Built for
the North Sea and Baltic tracle, she
has been carrying cargo along the
coasts of Scandinavia for 56 years.

Shortly after leaving the Chan-
nel, the mizzen boom split in two
and they had to put into Brest for
repairs. Using the mast of an old
fishing boat, they built a new boom
and headed for the Bay of Biscay,
making for the northwest corner of
Spain. Approximately 40 hours out
of Brest, the long bow sprit broke
and it took 2 days to make a nely
one from the broken mizzen boom
and the remaining piece of holy
sprit. All went fairly well for the
Fri and her crew in spite of un-
fair winds for several days. They
reached the Canary Islands and put
in to check the rigging and take on
more fuel for their small eng ne.
Fri left the Canary Islands June
10 and it was almost a month
before they arrived at Trinidad
because of sea conditions. Leaving
Trinidad, unfavorable weather and
currents took them much farther
north of their course, and to add
to their woes, a serious leak devel-
oped in the Fri's planking. After
considerable difficulty in attracting
the attention of passing ships, a

El Fri, uno de los ult'mos car-
gueros a vela que surean los mares,
transit el Canal recientemente, en
ruta desde Aalborg, Dinamarca,
con destiny a San Francisco, donde
se le expondri en el Fisherman's
Wharf y quizAs termine en el Musea
Maritime que existed en esa ciudad.
Debi6 11egar originalmente a San
Francisco el 4 de julio, a tempo
para la Semana Maritima. Pero
tuvo muchos contratiempos que 10
han atrasado considerablemente.
El Fri, cuyo nombre serd cam-
biado a Anne Margrethe, es un
queche de madera, de dos mistiles,

Neil J. Brady, segundo pilot del "Fri" aparece amarrando una vela en
el quiche de dos mbstiles con casco de madera construido en Dinamarca
en 1912 para el comercio en el Mar BAltico. El "Fri" transit reciente-
mente por el Canal en su vinje desde Aalborg, Dinamarca, hasta San Fran-
cisco y es uno de los 61timos barcos de vela para carga que navega por los
mares actualmente. (Foto adicional en la secei6n inglesa.)

el Lanal

tipo en ese pais, que todavia lleva
carga. Y 10 ha hecho en el Mar del
Norte y el Biltico durante 56 ailos.
Tiene 100 pies de eslora, 20 de
manga y cala 7 pies cuando esti
vacio. Tiene un motor auxiliary de
90 caballos de fuerza y su capaci-
dad de carga en este viaje es de
55 a 60 toneladas.
Su tripulaci6n consist en seis
voluntaries de different naciona-
lidades y el capit6n es un califor-
niano de 28 ailos: Norman L. de
Vall.
El Fri inici6 su viaje el 24 de
abril y tom6 carga en Copenhagen,
en Leith, y en el Puerto de Edin-
burgo, enfilando luego por el Canal
Ingl6s hacia los puertos de embar-
que de Normandia y Bretaila, en
Francia. Fue entonces que comen-
zaron los problems para la em-
barca Set i rao 61uDeet al6n


dirigieron hacia la Bahia de Viz-
eaya, buscando la esquina norocci-
dental de Espaila. Unas 40 horas
despubs de haber salido de Brest,
se parti6 el baupr6s y les 11ev6
2 dias repararlo. Durante various
dias todo fue bastante bien, a pesar
de los vientos en contra.
Partieron de las Islas Canarias
el 10 de junio y pas6 casi un mes

sd d e Hegaranaa T1ri ida
de Trinidad las corrientes y tor-
mentas los llevaron mucho mis al
norte de su curso y ademis, se
desarroll6 una toma de agua en el
casco de la embarcaci6n. Despubs
de muchas dificultades, lograron
ponerse en comunicaci6n con la
Guardian de Costa de Estados Uni-
dos, quienes les dejaron caer en
paracaidas dos bombast a motor,
cuando estaban como a unas 300
mills de Aruba. Ello evit6 que se
hundieran y pudieron Ilegar a Aru-
ba donde por 4 dias estuvieron
efectuando reparaciones.
Despubs de este viaje, podri
convertirse en reliquia, no s610 por
ser de ese tipo de nave, por so edad
y singularidad, sino que como uno
de los sobrevivientes de la era de
la navegaci6n a vela, se ha ganado
un merecido descanso.
