to mark the center during the
hearings.
B. G. Sanders, Jr., Chief, Cus-
toms Division, has pointed out that
Pacific side residents who have
hearings scheduled next month
have received letters from New
Orleans stating the place for hear-
ings will be Building 5534. Sanders
added, however, that the location
for the Pacific side hearings was
changed after the notification letters
had already been sent.
He emphasized that persons with
Pacific side appointments should go
to the operations center and not to
Building 5534, as the letters state.

to obtain a correct count.

of the United States. The card is
available at the U.S. Embassy to all
U.S. citizens living in the Republic
of Panama.
After filling out the card, it
should be returned to the Embassy
who will send it on to the Census
Office in the United States.


New Barge


Christened


AtMt. Hope


Anchor Barge I-A, a new Dredg-
ing Division facility, was christened
Monday by Mrs. Howard B. Harri-
son, wife of the Lead Foreman
(Barge Maintenance) of the Dredg-
ing Division. Harrison retired re-
cently with more than 28 years'
Canal service, all with the Dredging
Division.
Industrial and Dredging Division
officials, as well as Marine and En-
gineering and Construction Bureau
officials, and Mr. and Mrs. Harrison
attended the christening ceremony
held at the Industrial Division at
Mount Hope.
The barge, which is 100 feet long,
28 feet wide and 7 feet deep, is a
replacement for another anchor
barge which services the Panama
Canal Dredge Mindi, by handling
anchors for positioning the dredge
during dredging operations.
Anchor Barge I-A, which was
designed and constructed by the
PanCanal Industrial Division, also
will handle the floating pipeline
from the suction dredges and be
used to move heavy equipment on
the docks.
Cost of the new anchor barge,
which is of welded steel construe-
tion, amounted to approximately
$90,000. Work on the barge was in
progress for a little more than 2
years as the job was not one of
priority but provided a standby
backlog of work for the Industrial
Division's metal fabricating shop.
Construction of another barge,

Homely But Lovable


"Who said I'm homely?" Sandy seems to be saying as she admires her
image in the silver tray which she won for being the "homeliest but most
lovable dog" in the mixed breed class at the 12th Annual SPCA Pet Show
held recently at the Balboa Stadium. Sandy's happy owner is Patty West,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gary West of Fort Clayton, and a student at
Curundu Elementary School. The SPCA pet show is held annually to raise
money for the care and boarding of pets at the SPCA Shelter at Corozal.

Easter


Sunrise


Service
The annual Canal Zone Easter
sunrise service will be held Sunday,
March 29, at 6 a.m. at Balboa Sta-
dium. The service is being spon-
sored by the Southern Command
Chaplains' Advisory Group and the
Pacific Religious Workers' Associa-
tion rather than by the military
alone as has been done in the past.
The service has been changed
from the Fort Amador Causeway
to the Balboa Stadium to provide
a more central location convenient
to everyone, according to Chaplain
Charles A. Meek, U.S. Southern
Command, Command Chaplain.
The program will include a choir
composed of members from com-
munity churches and the 79th Army
Band from Fort Amador, Chaplain
(Major General) Francis L. Samp-
son, Chief of Chaplains U.S. Army,
will be the speaker.
Responsibility for arrangements
has been delegated as follows:
Rev. Rodney Thompson, Balboa

pants; Dr. Robert L. Hubbard, Sr.,

licity; E. F. McClelland, Balboa

BHS Senior Is Named
Scholarship Finalist
The National Merit Scholarship
Corporation has announced that
Philip D. York, a senior at Balboa

in the 1969-70 merit program.
Philip is the son of Col. and Mrs.
Dennis A. York of Quarry Heights.
Since enrolling in Balboa High
School as a senior this year, Philip

Pardic P. Watler, 61, who is
assigned to the cargo handling sec-
tion of the Terminals Division, was
honored in a special ceremony pre-
sided over by Gov. W. P. Leber who
made the presentation. Watler was
the first man to be cited for Special
Acts or Services under the Incentive
Awards Program as revised the past
autumn.
Under this section of the pro-
gram, a Special Acts or Services
Award is presented for a one-time
act, particularly one of heroism or
courage, beneficial to the Canal or-
ganization or its personnel. Cash
awards may be authorized to ac-
company the award certificates.
For the saving of a human life
a $500 award is considered appro-
priate under the revised program.
Watler's act occurred January 24
while he was assigned to the cargo
operations of the SS Folias, which
was tied up at Dock 6-B in Cris-
tobal. David Douglas, a checker
employed by a local shipping agent,
attempted to step from the vessel
to the dock but slipped from the
piling and fell into the water
between the ship and the dock.
Watler called for a length of
rope and a ladder, threw one end
of the line into the water for
Douglas to hold on to and then
Watler lowered himself down the
ladder. He then pulled Douglas to
the side of the ship and they climbed
to the deck.
Moments after reaching the dock,
the vessel moved back into the side
of the pier. Had the ship moved
moments earlier, both men could
have been crushed between the
Folias and the dock.
In citing Watler's act, the Cov-
ernor said he wondered how many
other persons would have done
what Watler did under the same
circumstances.
A native of Colombia, Watler first
went to work for the Canal organi-
zation in 1931 and has worked
intermittently with PanCanal for
28 years. Present at the ceremony
were Axton T. Jones, Transporta-
tion and Terminals Director, and
Watler's wife, Cataline, and one
daughter, Luisa. Watler also has
another daughter, Marcelina, and
two sons, Marcos and Hector.
Also present for the ceremony
were Edward A. Doolan, Personnel
Director, and F. J. Wainio, Super-
intendent, Terminals Division.








THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


March 20, 1970


Top Suggestion Award


Dennis A. Gilbert, right, safety officer for the Transportation and Terminals
Bureau, receives a check for $300 and a suggestion award certificate from
Capt. A. L. Gallin, Marine Director. The suggestion, made by Gilbert
while he was an employee of the Navigation Division, contributed to the
reduction of excessive battery costs in the Navigation Division and repre-
sented approximate annual savings of $5,000. Gilbert was the top suggestion
award winner for February.

COLLECTIOn

By Emily J. Pric

Napoleon's France with all its
pomp, pretension, and political in-
trigue, comes alive in Juliette Ben-
zoni's Marianne. Although the
heroine is a fictional figure, all the
details of Napoleon and his court
are taken from memoirs and diaries
of the time to produce an exciting
historical novel.
The Twins Who Found Each
Other by Bard Lindeman is the
story of two brothers who were
separated soon after birth and raised
more than 1,000 miles apart, Tony
by a Italian Catholic family in Bing-
hamton, N.Y., and Roger by a
Jewish family in Miami. This is a
story of separation and reunion
plus an analysis of the old con-
troversy of heredity vs. environ-
ment. It is written primarily for the
layman without emphasis on the
medical significance.
Brazil is the setting for a good
novel, The Garlic Tree, by Ellen
Bromfield Celd. It's the story of a

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


Soapbox Derby

To Be Held in

Zone July 18

Although it is nearly 4 months to
race time, all boys who expect to
enter the 1970 Canal Zone (Soap-
box) Derby should start now to
construct their World's Gravity
Grand Prix cars.
Gary J. Levy, director of the
Canal Zone Derby, said a boy must
allow ample time to study design
and construction rules, get the
proper building materials, build the
car, and test and make adjustments
to the racers. The local derby will
be held July 18.
Levy said it took the 1969 All-
American champion Steve Souter
10 months to complete his sleek
racer that earned him the $7,500
first place college scholarship.
The local champion of the 1970
derby will receive a trophy, a $500
U.S. Savings Bond and an expense
paid trip to Akron, Ohio, to com-
pete in the All-American Gravity
Grand Prix on August 15. The first
nine finishers in the All-Amer-
ican will share $30,000 in college
scholarships.
For more information, interested
persons should call Fort Clayton
2202 o 6292.

Globe Circling Mariners


Pay 2d Visit to Canal


It was a second time around for
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Liggett of
California who transited the Canal
last week aboard their sailing
ketch Baccus, following a round-
the-world voyage.
They started their 3-year odyssey
in March 1967 when they arrived
at Cristobal from Annapolis, Md.
They stopped here briefly for sup-
plies and then sailed for the Pacific.
Their arrival at Cristobal last week
marked the completion of the globe-
girdling trip and their second south-
bound transit.
Liggett said that their 47-foot
craft performed like a champion on
the long sea stretches and that he
enjoyed the whole trip so much that
he hopes he and his wife will be
able to do it again. A land surveyed
from Newport Beach, Calif., he
plans to go back to work when he
returns within the next month or so.

Aguilar was born in Old Gatun,
then located in the Republic of
Panama, May 19, 1900. His early
childhood was spent on land his
father was farming but which they
had to abandon to permit the con-
struction of the Gatun Locks.
He started work with the Canal
organization in 1920 as a helper at
the Gatun Hydroelectric Station
where he said things moved at a
slower pace in those days. He re-
members throwing a fishing line
over the side of the dam when he
arrived at the hydroelectric station
in the morning. It was a poor day
when he didn't take home 9 or 10
snook.
He stayed with the Gatun Hydro-
electric Station for 31 years before
he was transferred to the Agua
Clara Diesel Station where he is
still employed.
After he retires, he and his wife,
the former Mercedes Licona, plan
to build a home in Puerto Pilon
where he has some land. They will
have plenty of visitors since the
Aguilars are parents of 10 children.

Venezuelan Navy Officer


Receives Training Here


Lt. Comdr. Jacob Salas Romer,
a graduate naval engineer of the
Naval College of Venezuela at
Maiquetia, has recently completed
a month of training in shipyard
management in the Canal Zone.
He received on-the-job training
in the Industrial Division with the
objective of developing skill as
production superintendent and plan-
ning superintendent.
The main purpose of Lieutenant
Commander Salas Romer's shipyard
management training is to improve
the efforts of the Government
owned shipyards of Venezuela in
the maintenance of naval vessels
and other vessels in that country.
During his training here he re-
ceived instruction in shop organiza-
tion, work scheduling, workload
prediction and balancing, work pro-
gress, training of all levels of em-
ployees, advance planning, current
planning, cost estimating, money
management, facilities management,
design, industrial safety and control
of outlying activities.

Romer, who is also a graduate


Acute accidental poisoning in
households accounts for more than
1,800 deaths annually in the United
States. More than half of these
deaths are children under 5 years
though this age group constitutes
only 10 percent of the population.
This problem has been recognized
by President Nixon who has pro-
claimed Poison Prevention Week
from March 15 through March 21.
The poisonous hazards of the
average household have increased
greatly within the past few years.
Recently, a horde of potentially
harmful chemicals have invaded the
home in products intended to clean
clothes, polish silver, wave hair,
clean ovens, kill roaches, and weeds.
Most parents keep lye and insect
killers out of reach of children but
they are sometimes not aware that
there is danger in many varieties of

mechanical engineer from the Uni-
versidad de Venezuela in Caracas,
hopes to return to the Canal Zone
in the near future to inspect work

Mount Hope. The vessels are a tug-
boat and a hydrographic research
ship.

Notes



furniture polish, bleaches, deter-
gents, paint removers, and the like.
Drugs and other medicines pre-
scribed for treatment of illness is
another danger. One third of the
poisoning deaths of children are
caused by drugs such as aspirin,
barbiturates, tranquilizers, amphe-
tamines (diet pills), and other drugs
prescribed by physicians.
Poison Prevention Week serves
to remind everyone to recognize
the dangers in the home which
could lead to child poisoning and
to promote action to prevent any
occurrences that could mean illness
or death for a small child.
The Canal Zone has an efficient
Poison Control Center operating
24 hours a day, 7 days a week with
a physician always on call. The
center is located in Gorgas Hospital
and is under the supervision of
Dr. Daniel Hirschl, Chief of the
Pediatric Service. The center is
affiliated with the National Clear-
inghouse for Poison Control Centers
and it has an up-to-date reference
library containing the names and
ingredients of hundreds of me-
dicinal drugs and commercially
marketed products.
Anyone suspecting that an ac-
quaintance or member of his family
has eaten or drunk a substance
which may be poisonous should call
Balboa 2600 immediately for profes-
sional advice. If possible, the con-
tainer should be on hand when call-
ing the physician or, in case of dire
emergency, taken to the hospital.
This one act increases the speed
and efficiency of the medical team
treating the patient.
The Health Bureau has prepared
a simple, easy to follow information
sheet on how to prevent poisoning
and how to give sensible on-the-
spot first aid until medical advice
can be secured. This information
sheet, available in both Spanish and
English, may be pasted to the in-
side of the medicine cabinet door.
It can be obtained free of charge
from neighborhood Community
Health Centers.

Penn State Seniors Learn


Teaching in Canal Zone


Thirteen seniors from Pennsyl-
vania State University recently
completed a 10-week practice
teaching program at Canal Zone
schools.
Dr. C. L. Latimer, Deputy Super-
intendent of Canal Zone Schools
and coordinator of the program,
said the 10-week visit "was extre-
nely valuable to both the univer-
sity students and the local schools."
The 11 girls and two boys were
accompanied by Dr. Frances Fair-
child, professor of education and
specialist in elementary reading
and language arts. Dr. Fairchild
taught a course in language arts in
elementary schools to Canal Zone
residents who will receive graduate
credits at Penn State.
The program was conducted on a
volunteer basis. Dr. Latimer noted
that there were more teachers who
volunteered for the program than
there were visiting university stu-
dents. The student teachers left the
Canal Zone recently and returned
to Pennsylvania following a recep-
tion last week at the Tivoli Guest
House which they attended with
their critic teachers, school princi-
pals, and other school personnel.
Dr. Fairchild wil depart from the
Isthmus later.
One of the visitors, a secondary
school mathematics student, was
assigned to Balboa High School,
three, who are majoring in art,
spent time at Curundu Junior High
School Art Department and at the
elementary school and the nine
others, studying to become elemen-
tary teachers, were assigned to
Howard, Kobbe, D'ablo, and Cu-
rundu Elementary Schools.

The Penn State group was the
first of its type and size to visit the
Canal Zone for a practice teaching
program. Dr. Latimer said that in
the past only occasional individuals,
usually a local boy or girl attending
a university in the United States,
would practice teach in the Canal
Zone.
During their visit to the Isthmus,
the collegians visited the locks and
were briefed on the Canal opera-
tion by Panama Canal Information
Officer Frank A. Baldwin. They
also enjoyed trips to the San Blas
Islands, Taboga, and other areas.

Bautizan Nueva Barcaza


En Division de Dragado


Anchor Barge 1A nueva unidad
de la Divisi6n de Dragado, fue bau-
tizada por la Sra. Margie de Harri-
son, esposa de Ioward B. Harrison,
Primer Capataz (Mantenimiento de
Barcazas) de ]a Divisi6n de Draga-
do, y quien se jubil6 recientemente
luego de mas de 28 aiios de servi-
cio al Canal, todos con esa misma
Division.
A la ceremonia del bautizo, que
tuvo lugar en la Divisi6n Industrial
en Mount Hope, asistieron funcio-
narios de la Division Industrial, de
la Division de Dragado, ademAs de
funcionarios de la Direcci6n de In-
genieria y Construcci6n y de los
esposos Harrison.
La barcaza, que tiene 100 pies
de largo, 28 pies de ancho y 7 pies
de altura, reemplaza a otra barcaza
de anclas que presta servicios a la
Draga Mindi del Canal de Panama,
manejando las anclas que ponen en
posici6n a la draga mientras esta
operando.
La Anchor Barge 1A (Barcaza de
Anclas 1A), que fue disefiada y


construida por la Divisi6n Indus-
trial del Canal de PanamA, mane-
jara tambi6n las cafierias flotantes
que parten de la draga de succi6n
y tambi6n serA usada para manejar
equipo pesado en los muelles.
El costo de la nueva barcaza de
anclas, que ha sido construida de
acero soldado, es de aproximada-
mente $90.000. El trabajo de cons-
trucci6n dur6 un poco mas de 2
anos, ya que no era un trabajo de
prioridad, pero proporcion6 trabajo
de reserve al taller de construccio-
nes en metal de la Divisi6n Indus-
trial.
La construcci6n de otra barcaza,
menor que la Anchor Barge 1A,
serA iniciada pronto en las mismas
condiciones. Es una barcaza de
buceo adicional, similar a las que
se encuentran en operaci6n en
Balboa y Crist6bal. La nueva bar-
caza de buceo, que serA estacionada
en Gamboa, forma part de un pro-
grama mayor para aumentar ]a ca-
pacidad de la empresa del Canal
para el salvamento de naves en una
emergencia.


Premian a Tony Aguilar


Por 50 Anos de Servicio


Pedro A. Aguilar, ayudante elec-
tricista de plant generadora, em-
pleado de la Divisi6n de Electrici-
dad, tenia muchos motives el lunes
9 de marzo para sentirse content.
Tony Aguilar, como le laman
sus amistades y familiares, cumplia
ese dia 50 afios de servicios con el
Canal de Panami. Actualmente tra-
baja en la Estaciin de Agua Clara,
pero ese dia viaj6 al sector Pacifico
para presentarse en la Oficina del
Ingeniero El6ctrico en Balboa, a
donde lleg6 el Gobemador W. P.
Leber a entregarle un certificado
de Premio por Servicios Eminente-
mente Satisfactorios v Prolongados,
ademais de un cheque por $500.
Pero su satisfacci6n nmis grande
se derivaba de las palabras con que
C. W. Chase, Jr., Ingeniero Electri-
co del Canal, habia rccomendado
que se le entregara el premio y que
fueron leidas antes de que el Go-
bernador le entregara el certificado:
"El historical de Aguilar, como eni-
pleado de la Direcci6n de Ingenie-
ria v Construcci6n durante los ilti-
mos 50 afios, refleja su leal y con-
sagrado servicio a esta Direcci6n".


Aguilar ha pasado today su vida
cerca del Canal. Naci6 en el viejo
poblado de Gatin, el 19 de mayo
de 1900. Trabaj6 en si nifiez en el
campo en uni6n de si padre, pero
tuvieron que mudarse cuando em-
pez6 la construcci6n de las Esclu-
sas. Desde muy joven trabaj6 duro
y much antes de cumplir los 20
anios, tenia que levantarse a las 2
a.m. para tender la secci6n de car-
niccria en la tienda de su padre.
Parece que Tony se cans6 de
picar came y el 9 de marzo de 1920
entraba a trabajar en la Hidroel6c-
trica de Gat6n en calidad de avu-
dante. En aquellos tienipos las co-
sas eran diferentes y Tony tenia
tiempo todas las mafianas, antes de
entrar a trabajar, de tirar una cuer-
da de pescar por el vertedero. Al
final dl dia, por lo general, llevaba
9 6 10 ri6balos a casa.
En 1921, Tony decidi6 renunciar
a su \ida de soltero v contrajo ma-
trimonio con la que en ese entonces
era la Srta. Mercedes Licona. El
matrimonio fue bendecido por Dios
con 10 hijos.

Priscilla Esther Cianca Arcia, es ayudante estudiantil
y ha sido asignada a prestar servicios en la Oficina de
Planificaci6n. Todos sus compafieros la aprecian much,
debido a su carActer alegre y servicial, siempre dis-
puesta a hacer cualquier favor a los que trabajan con
ella. Naci6 en PanamA hace un poco menos de 20 afios.
Su escuela primaria la curs6 en el Instituto Justo Aro-
semena y la secundaria en el Instituto Panamericano,
ambos en la ciudad de PanamA. Pertenece a la Iglesia
Metodista de PanamA y le encanta trabajar en la Aso-
ciaci6n de Boy Scouts de PanamA, en la rama de Lo-
batos. Ostenta el titulo de Akela, y los pequefios explo-
radores se Ilevan muy bien con ella. Habla con entu-
siasmo de sus afios de colegio y dice con orgullo que
obtuvo una menci6n honorifica en estenografia cuando
se gradu6. No es su primer experiencia en el trabajo
la que ahora estf pasando, pues en las vacaciones de
1967 trabaj6 con Ram6n Suazo y Cia., Ltda. Luego,
en 1968, las vacaciones las trabaj6 con la Columbia
Pictures de PanamA, y en 1969, las vacaciones las em-
ple6 prestando servicios en la Kraft Foods, S.A., de
PanamA. Le encanta la nataci6n, lo mismo que la gim-
nasia, pero lo que le fascina es el baile, en todas sus
formas. Piensa seguir sus studios en una universidad
de Estados Unidos hasta obtener su titulo de Secretaria
Ejecutiva. Tambi6n, para satisfacci6n propia, piensa
hacer studios de psicologia. Acerca de sus impresio-
nes sobre el trabajo de ayudante estudiantil, dice que
estA sumamente agradecida de la oportunidad que se
le ha brindado. Le llama much la atenci6n el modo
de ser de todas las personas que trabajan aqui, donde
todos se ayudan unos a otros. Se le pregunta cual es

Un grupo de antiguas amistades, de los tiempos del
viejo poblado de La Boca, brindaron recientemente un
agasajo al Profesor Frank Prince, por el gran honor
de haber sido ser el atleta encargado de llevar la an-
torcha olimpica al interior del Estadio Revoluci6n en
la ciudad de PanamA y de encender la llama olimpica,
durante los moments culminantes de la inauguraci6n
de los XI Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe en
la ciudad de Panami. El Profesor Frank Prince, cuarto
desde la derecha, naci6 en el Istmo y aqui se inici6
tanto en las labores acad6micas como en los deportes,
habi6ndose destacado en ambas actividades. Actual-
mente es professor en un colegio secundario de Brook-

Gran Labor del Programa


De Recreaci6n de Verano


Un total de 630 ninos de las es-
cuelas primaries latinoamericanas
de la Zona del Canal estan gozando
de recreaci6n dirigida y aprendien-
do oficios tiles durante sus vaca-
ciones, gracias al program de la
Junta de Recreaci6n de Verano de
la Zona del Canal.
La junta, que se form en 1947,
estaL integrada por 12 miembros,
cuatro miembros escogidos por elec-
ci6n v dos representantes de cada
una de las cuatro comunidades la-
tinoamericanas de la Zona del
Canal.
El prop6sito del program es
mantener ocupadas las manos y las
mentes de los niiios de primaria
durante las vacaciones escolares.
Se les ensefia oficios tiles que
les serin despubs muy valiosos en
su hogar y durante el resto de sus
vidas. Las ninas aprenden a coser
y a media que van avanzando se
les ensena toda clase de trabajos de
aguja. Tamlbin aprenden a tejer, a
border, tejido crochet, a trabajar
con cuentas de vidrio, a manufac-
turar carteras y muchos otros ar-
ticulos propios para sefioritas.

Los buenos no necesitan tener
miedo en esta vida ... ni en la otra.


A los nifios se les ensefia a traba-
jar la madera, escultura, moldeado
en veso, ademis de muchas otras
manualidades interesantes.
Al final de cada program de va-
caciones, los trabajos de los ninos
son expuestos para que los padres
de familiar se den cuenta de la labor
efectuada.
Pero no todo es trabajo en el
program. Los nifios tienen horas
de recreaci6n dirigida y supervi-
sada por los instructors. Ademrs,
por lo menos una vez durante el
program, se les lleva en una ex-
cursi6n al campo.
La matricula consiste en la suma
ncmninal de 20 centavos para el
primer nifio de cada familiar y 10
centavos para cada nifio adicional.
Pero los condos que sostienen este
program, de gran importancia para
la comunidad, provienen del Fondo
Unido de la Zona del Canal. Con
ellos se logra comprar los materia-
les necesarios y pagar los gastos de
operation.
Es un program de voluntarios y
tanto los directors de la junta como
los 63 instructors voluntarios ofre-
cen sus servicios altruisticamente
en beneficio de las comunidades a
que pertenecen.
En Rainbow City, son atendidos
277 niflos por 28 instructors volun-
tarios, bajo la direcci6n de las sefio-
ras Victoria Hunter y Savina Spal-
ding.
En Santa Cruz, nueve instructo-
res voluntarios atienden a 100 nifios,
dirigidos por las sefioras Lillian
Hinds y Caroline James.

Todos los zapatos de seguridad
se venderan con un 15 por ciento
de descuento de sus precious regula-
res, del 13 al 18 de abril, en los
almacenes de Balboa, Coco Solo,
Rainbow City y Gamboa.
Esta serfi una oportunidad para
ahorrar algo de dinero en calzados
de trabajo y de vestir, ademfis de
que uno cuidara de su seguridad.
Esta venta se verifica para darle
impulse al uso de calzados de se-
guridad.


En Paraiso trabajan 15 instructo-
res voluntarios, atendiendo a 115
niflos, bajo la direcci6n de las sefio-
ras Elouise Clark y Myrtle Gordon.
En Pedro Miguel, 138 nifios son
atendidos por 11 instructors volun-
tarios, bajo la direcci6n de la Sra.
Muriel Burgess y la Srta. Gloria
Bovell.
Todos estos grupos trabajan bajo
la supervision de la Sra. Leonora
Prince quien es la coordinadora
del program, con el que ha estado
relacionada desde 1950.
