JODY SWEARINGEN surfaces at the Los Rios swimming pool with "B"
badge in hand. Aged 3' years, Jody is one of the youngest swimmers
to receive the American Red Cross beginner's badge in the Canal Zone.
To earn a "B" badge, a child must be able to complete two 50-yard laps
of the pool free style, then after a one minute rest he must complete two
more laps, one free style and one backstroke. He also must dive into the
water headfirst and be able to tread water one minute. Jody is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Swearingen, of Diablo Heights. John Cowan, life-
guard at Los Rios, taught Jody to swim.

Sales of Cyclamate Items

To Halt in CZ. Stores

The sale of beverages, foods, and
drugs containing cyclamate as an
artificial sweetener will be phased
out in retail stores, commissaries,
and post exchanges in the Canal
Because of the possibility of the
development of bladder tumors
associated with the consuming of
an excessive amount of cyclamate,
it is necessary that all items con-
taining this substance be removed
from the market, health officials
The Joint Medical Advisory Com-
mittee of the Canal Zone, which is
made up of the Health Director of
the Canal Zone, the Surgeon
USARSO, Surgeon USAFSO, and
Surgeon USNAVSO, agree with
the Food and Drug Administration
that food and beverages containing
this artificial sweetener are poten-
tially dangerous to the health of
the Canal Zone population.
A halt has been called to the
production of all food and drinks
containing cyclamate following stu-

dies on animals made by Abbott
Laboratories and reported to the
Food and Drug Administration.
A review of these studies and of
the underlying data by experts in
the National Cancer Institute and
other consultants shows that this
artificial sweetener can no longer
be considered generally safe for
use in food and drink.
After January 1, 1970, no bever-
ages containing cyclamate will be
offered for sale in the Canal Zone,
and the selling of foods containing
this substance will cease on Feb-
ruary 1. Drugs containing cycla-
mate for non-therapeutic use will
be withdrawn by July 1.
Dietary foods intended for dia-
betics and other patients will be
labeled to show that a potentially
dangerous drug has been used as
a sweetener or another artificial
sweetener will be substituted. Phy-
sicians will continue to prescribe
cyclamate for their patients when
in their judgment this substance is
needed to treat a specific disease

Grass Is No Place

For Boats, Cars

Occupants of Canal Zone quar-
ters are reminded that parking of
boats, trailers, or cars on lawns is
not permitted and that anyone
having a parking problem should
call the Housing Office for
The Housing Office will handle
each case individually and help
residents work out a solution to
their particular problem. Personally
financed concrete parking pads or
shelters are one solution to the
parking problem, but before con-
struction is begun written ap-
proval from the Housing Office
is necessary.
Anyone seeking permission to
build any type of parking space
should submit a letter to the Hous-

ing Office outlining the plans and
should include a sketch of the
planned construction.
The location of such parking
facilities will be controlled from
the standpoint of appearance, in-

Balboa Supermarket customers
should shop early on November 21
and 26, the nights when the Army-
Navy-Air Force "Iguana Bowl"
and "Turkey Bowl" football games
will be played, to help prevent con-
gestion in the Balboa parking lots.
Football fans are urged to use

Doctors Urge


Against Polio
A recent outbreak of polio in
young children in Costa Rica has
prompted the Panama Canal Health
Bureau to urge parents to check
whether or not their children have
had the complete oral polio immu-
nization series.
Health officials said this is im-
portant due to the close proximity
of Costa Rica to Panama. It was
presumed that the Costa Rican
children had not been immunized.
Poliomyelitis vaccine of the oral
(Sabin) type is available at the
various Canal Zone Community
Health Centers during regular
working hours.

Special Leave

Is Approved

Panama Canal employees will
be given 3 days leave with pay in
case of the death of an immediate
relative who dies while a member

Gov. W. P. Leber has authorized
the administrative leave which will
not be subtracted from the em-
ployees leave balance.
Employees will be granted the
time off to make arrangements for,
or to attend the funeral or me-
morial services of a relative who
died as a result of a wound, disease,
or injury.
The term "immediate relative"
is defined as the employee's spouse.
parent, children, brother or sister,
and "any individual related by
blood or affinity whose close asso-
ciation with the deceased was such
as to have been equivalent of a
family relationship," according to
the Personnel Bureau.
To take the 3 days leave, an em-
ployee must make a request to his
bureau director.

These new bolts are flush with the

Veterans Day

To Be Observed
Veterans organizations in the
Canal Zone are completing plans
for the observance of Veterans Day
on November 11. A parade and
ceremonies are planned for the
Pacific side in Balboa. Special
ceremonies are also planned for the
Atlantic side:
The day's activities at Balboa will
begin with a parade led by Grand
Parade Marshal Rear Adm. Charles
D. Nace Commander, United
States Naval Forces Southern Com-
mand, which will start from the
vicinity of the Printing Plant, La
Boca, at 10 a.m. The parade route
will be down La Boca Road onto
Balboa Road, turning left near the
Chase Bank and continuing along
Balboa Road to the Roosevelt Ave-
nue intersection near the Retail
Store Annex. There, the parade will
turn right onto Roosevelt Avenue
and enter the Balboa Stadium
through the north gate. Upon
entering the stadium, the parade
elements will pass in review and
assemble on the field for ceremo-
nies which will start about 10:25
Units from the Canal Zone and
Panama will be participating in
this year's parade, including the
Panama Firemen's (Cuerpo de
Bomberos) and the Guardia Nacio-
nal Bands.
Guest speaker at the ceremonies
will be admiral Nace. Father Ed-
ward J. Melvin, C.M., will offer
the invocation and will read the
Roll Call of Deceased Veterans,
and the Reverend Charles E. Car-
ter will offer the benediction.
On the Atlantic side, ceremonies
will be held at the Mount Hope
Cemetery at 10 a.m.

Vehicle registration applications
for 1970 are now available at Canal
Zone gas and police stations and
at the License Section in the Civil
Affairs Building.
Car and motorcycle owners who
wish a license plate with a low
number must have their 1970 ap-
plications at the License Section
before the drawing for low tag
numbers which will be held No-
vember 14, at 9 a.m.

Former Canal Lawyer

Has Poetry

Every man is a poet at heart. But
Theodore P. Daly, former Panama
Canal Assistant General Counsel,
who is a successful New York
lawyer these days, believes in ac-
tion. He has written a book of verse.
The evidence of his poetic talent,
a slim volume entitled "March
Through Russia and Other Poems"
arrived on the Isthmus recently.
The author, who left the Canal
Zone in 1963 to practice law in
New York, evidently has been
using his leisure time to versify.
Published by Dorrance & Co. of
Philadelphia, the book is identified
on the flyleaf as a collection of
poems with topical themes. Al-
though several of the author's
poems have previously appeared in
print in the United States, this is
his first published book.
"The poems in this volume,


while varying widely in style and
content, are artistically united by
a singleness of purpose and vision.
There is a mature irony and an
intellectual detachment in the
poet's viewpoint which gives them
a timeless universality," the flyleaf
criticism says in part.
A native New Yorker, Daly joined
the General Counsel's staff as
Admiralty Trial Attorney in 1957.
He was promoted to Assistant
General Counsel in 1960 and left
for New York in 1963 to go into
private practice.
He studied law at St. Johns Uni-
versity in Brooklyn and also at
Glasgow University in Scotland. He
served with the Army in Europe
from 1943 to 1946.
He lives with his wife Mary,
and their two children in northern
Westchester County.

A rock left on a walkway, uI
one caught up in the heavy doors
at the bottom of a barge are safety
hazards that must be coped with
daily. Handling dynamite, wield-
ing a 16-pound sledge hammer,
or working with heavy cables can
become routine, but Harrison
makes sure that this doesn't happen
to the extent that the men forget
safety practices. As a reminder,
he often gives 5-minute safety

This is done with large barges
which carry 1,000 cubic yards of
dirt per load. After a barge is
loaded at the excavating area in
the Cut, it is brought by tug to
the barge servicing dock in Gam-
boa where it stays until more are
filled and brought down. Then
these barges are joined together
and moved by tug to the dump
area near Barro Colorado, well
out of the Canal channel. After
the barges are emptied, they are
returned to the servicing area

Another job done by the Dredg-

high spots that develop in the
Canal channel, especially in the
vicinity of the lock chambers.
In spite of the hazards involved
in the work, the Barge Service has
not had a disabling on the job
accident since December 1958.
Harrison has a perfect safety rec-
ord having never in his 28 years
of Government service sustained
an injury of any kind.

Howard Harrison inspects a 1,000-yard load of dirt dug from Gaillard
Cut during current Cut-widening operations, before it is moved by tug to
the dumping area near Barro Colorado Island.

Safe working methods are constantly stressed in the Barge Service. Renaldo
Fransis, seaman, demonstrates correct procedure as he wields 16-pound
sledge hammer to tighten cables which control gates of the barge. Isiah
McFarlane, seaman, holds the wrench.

Prudencio P6rez, seaman, exercises care as he enters
a barge to remove a rock caught in the gates. A cable
holds the gate open while the skindiver removes
obstacles caught in the gate hinges during dumping
operations. Looking on are, left to right: Victor
Mite, Isiah McFarlane, and Howard Harrison.

Howard Harrison, left, and Edward Russell, safety
officer, Dredging Division, right, discuss an altera-
tion to a piece of equipment that has resulted in
safer working conditions for skindivers working
inside the barges. Here a cotter pin which was fre-
quently misplaced has been replaced by a toggle pin.

New York Hit

Continues At

C.Z. College
An Inspector Calls, an unusual
mystery-fantasy, successfully opened
Wednesday and will run through
Saturday night at the Canal Zone
The play by J. B. Priestley delves
into fantasy and crime, and tells
the story of a defeated and poverty-
stricken girl, and the connection
between her suicide and the activ-
ities of the well-to-do, socially
secure Birling family.
Much more than an ordinary
"whodunit," An Inspector Calls
probes into middle-class society,
morality, and ethics.
The play was a hit in New York
and London with the distinguished
talents of Sir Cedric Hardwicke,
Thomas Mitchell, and Melville
Cooper. Gordon Silverthorne heads
the college cast as Inspector Goole.
Other leading actors are John
Barb and Michael Hoy. The cast
includes Cathy Jestice, Hester
Benner, Edward Lee, and Maritza

a Rabbi and one studying psy-

quite up to "The Chosen," is the
best novel to come along this year.
All the Things We Were by
Louise Tanner is billed as "A scrap-
book of the people, politics, and
popular culture in the tragicomic
years between the Crash and Pearl
Harbor." It is a nostalgic get-
together of the Thirties: the mov-
ies the radio, the funnies, the
songs, fashions, and foolishness.
Surprisingly, readers with long
memories will be reminded of many
present-day fads and protests.
Myra Waldo has compiled 37

Rumer Godden has written an
enjoyable novel In This House of

described, and the whole book is
Eric Ambler has long been known
for his exciting stories full of sus-
pense and adventure. Sad to say,
his new one, The Intercom Con-
spiracy, has neither. The plot is
confused and not very exciting
when you puzzle it out, and the
telling of the story is draggy and
dull. Too bad.

Open House

At College
The Canal Zone College will
hold open house Wednesday as a
part of the observance of American
Education Week.
A panel discussion, to be held
at 7 p.m. in Room 204, will be
followed by a question and answer
period. Panel members will be de-
partment chairmen, counselors, and
faculty members who will describe
various programs of instruction and
student activities.
Student guides will be available
to conduct tours of the college
campus following the discussion.
The public is invited and classroom
visitors will be welcome during all
class periods.

Canal Pilot

Capt. J. C. Nelson, master of the
SS Steel, has commended Canal
Pilot Leonard E. Bell on the effi-
cient handling of his ship when it
suffered power loss while transit-
ing the Canal.
In a letter to Marine Director
A. L. Gallin, Captain Nelson stated:
"I would like to commend Pilot
Capt. Leonard Bell for his magnifi-
cent handling of our vessel through
the Canal on October 4. As you
are no doubt aware, we suffered
power loss and required towing
assistance. Captain Bell responded
to events in a highly professional
manner and conducted the vessel
with admirable skill and com-
petence. I feel that Captain Bell
epitomized the professional capab-
ilities of the Panama Canal Pilots

American Education Week

Bright smiling faces of first grade students at Diablo
Elementary School reflect the importance of a sound
education. The vital role being played by public edu-
cation is emphasized by the observance of American
Education Week, November 9-15. The week is being
sponsored by the National Education Association, the
American Legion, the National Congress of Parents

and Teachers, and the U.S. Office of Education. Three
of the happy faces belong to, from left, Kenneth Pitts,
Donna Darley and Danny Smith. Parents and others
are invited to visit various Canal Zone schools during
the week and become better acquainted with the
schools' programs. A visitation schedule for both U.S.
and Latin American schools was announced earlier.

Reemplazan los Pernos

En el Puente Thatcher

Los pemos de la carretera que
pasa por el Puente Thatcher Ferry
estin siendo reemplazados.
Pero no crean que el muy cono-
cido puente sobre el Canal se esta
cayendo debido a que hay que
reemplazar miles de gruesos per-
nos que se han partido y que son
los que aseguran las unions de
expansion de la carretera.
Al contrario, igual que el de
pintura, es parte del mantenimiento
regular y el reemplazo de los
pernos fue recomendado por los
constructores, Sverdrup & Parcel
and Associates, Inc., luego de una
inspecci6n t6cnica de rutina.
Personal de la Divisi6n de Man-
tenimiento se encargara de hacer
el trabajo, en base continue, tra-
bajando en una de las vias del
trifico cada vez y dejando la carre-
tera libre durante los dias de fiesta
y los fines de semana, cuando el
trafico se vuelve mas pesado.
El trabajo consistiri en la re-
moci6n de los miles de pemos que
existen en las unions de expan-
si6n y reemplazarlos por otios, del
tipo de cabeza chata. Estos nuevos
pernos estarAn al ras con la super-
ficie de la carretera y requeririn
menos mantenimiento, ya que los
pernos originales, de cabeza redon-
da, eran partidos por el paso de
camiones pesados y equipo similar.
Los automovilistas tendrin una

La sccci6n B del Almac6n en

vamente el 19 de diciembre.

de la tarea sacarA y reemplazara
unos 30 pernos por dia. Aproxima-
damente ya se ha terminado la
mitad de una via. Se calcula que

Un Gran Exito

An Inspector Calls (La Visita de
un Inspector), extraordinario drama
de misterio y fantasia, se estren6
con gran exito el mi6rcoles y se-
guira hasta el sAbado en la noche
en el Teatro de la Universidad de
la Zona del Canal.
La obra, original de J. B. Pries-
ley, profundiza en el crime y la
fantasia, y cuenta la historic de
una muchacha pobre y derrotada
por la vida, y la relaci6n entire su
suicidio y las actividades de la
acomodada y socialmente segura
familiar Birling.
Mucho mAs que un ordinario
drama policiaco, "La Visita de un
Inspector" sondea la moralidad y
la 6tica de la clase media.
La obra fue un exito en Nueva
York y en Londres, con el gran
talent de Sir Cedric Hardwick,
Thomas Mitchell y Melville Cooper.

Tendra Interesante

Reunion el Dia 12
Una emocionante conferencia
sobre viajes por diferentes paises
y con vistas de lugares interesantes
serA presentada en la pr6xima reu-
ni6n del Consejo Civico de Paraiso.
La reunion tendrA lugar en la
Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso el
mi6rcoles a las 7:30 p.m.
Se invita a los residents de las

No se Puede


En el Cesped
A los residents de casas del
Canal de PanamA se les recuerda
que no se permit estacionar re-
molques, botes o autos en el ces-
ped y que los que tengan proble-
mas de estacionamiento deberAn
llanar a la Oficina de la Vivienda
para que les ayude.
La Oficina de la Vivienda aten-
derA cada caso individualmente y
avudarA a los residents a buscar
una soluci6n para su problema par-
ticular. Una soluci6n para ese tipo
de estacionamiento seria la cons-
trucci6n de plataformas de con-
cret o de cobertizos con piso de
cemento financiados por los inte-
resados, pero antes de comenzar la
construcci6n se necesita una auto-
rizaci6n escrita de ]a Oficina de la
Toda persona que desee permiso
para construir cualquier tipo de
estacionamiento debe presentar
una solicitud por escrito a la Ofi-
cina de la Vivienda en que se deta-
llen los planes e incluir un dibujo
de la construcci6n que se plane.
La localizaci6n de tales esta-
cionamientos se controlarA desde
el punto de vista de la apariencia,
el menoscabo de los derechos de los
vecinos o la interferencia con ins-
talaciones piiblicas. No se permi-
tirA que se obstruyan las aceras.
Ello va contra las reglamentaciones
de la Zona del Canal.
La Oficina de la Vivienda debera
aprobar los materials que se usen
en la construcci6n de las plata-
formas de estacionamiento y no se
permitirAi el uso de piedra molida,
ya que obstaculiza la operaci6n del
enuipo para cortar hierba.
