Sian Yung Project

Work Progressing

Cargo removal operations are
progressing according to plan on
the nationalist Chinese ship Sian
Yung which struck the Canal's west
bank December 6 and sank in Gail-
lard Cut.
Rice is being removed at the rate
of more than 100 tons a day by the
suction dredge Mindi. At this time,
about half of the original 8,000-ton

UF Auto Show

Will Include

Formula Cars
The annual United Fund auto-
mobile show will be held this year
at the skating rink on Diablo Road
near Pier 18 in Balboa from Jan-
uary 28 to 31 and from February 4
to 7.
Rogelio Quintero, director of the
exhibition, announced that the high-
light of the show this year will be
an exhibit of formula cars outside
the building. They will be shown
together with small boats and are
the property of members of the
automobile clubs of Panama and the
Canal Zone.
The skating rink will be better
lighted this year than in the past,
and those attending will be able to
get a better view of the new 1971
models from the United States,
Europe, and Japan. These models
have just been placed on the market.
All of the automobile agencies in
the Republic of Panama are taking
part in the annual automobile show.
In addition, door prizes will be
offered by Calox Panamefia and
Agencies Feduro.

Approximately five hundred men,
a cross section of leaders in Govern-
ment, business, education, and other
fields of endeavor, both public and
private, are expected to attend the
seventh annual Canal Zone Gov-
ernor's Prayer Breakfast to be held
in the Cafetorium of the Curundu
Junior High School Tuesday, Feb-
ruary 2, at 7:50 a.m.
U.S. Representative Burt L. Tal-
cott of California, and Dr. Jorge
L. Taylor, Panamanian psychologist
practicing in Costa Rica, are the
main speakers. Representative Tal-
cott was on the program for the
Presidential Breakfast in Washing-
ton last year.
The Governor's Prayer Breakfast
is held in the same spirit as the Pres-
idential Prayer Breakfast in Wash-
ington, D.C. Similar breakfasts are
held in more than 30 countries
throughout the world and in most
of the States of the United States.
The occasion brings together leaders
from all walks of life, giving them
an opportunity to assemble above
political and religious differences.
The breakfast program will be
broadcast live over SCN Radio and
Radio HOXO in Panama City will
rebroadcast the program for even-
ing listeners.
The fourth annual Women's
Prayer Luncheon will be held at the
Tivoli Guest House Monday, Feb-
ruary 1, at 12 noon.

rice cargo has already been removed
and deposited in a 75-acre spoil area
on the west bank of the Canal. It is
expected that this phase of the sal-
vage operation will take a few more
The removal operations are being
carried out under the direction of
W. W. Fade, Chief of the Dredging
Division, who was appointed task
force commander by Col. Charles
R. Clark, Engineering and Con-
struction Director. He is being
assisted by Carl 0. Riggs, Jr., Assist-
ant Chief of the Facilities Engineer-
ing Division and task force deputy
Canal engineers report that oil
pollution is being controlled by
means of a deep skirted oil pollu-
tion boom in the immediate area of
the ship.
The SS Sian Yung, a freighter of
nationalist Chinese registry, is one
of the few ships ever to sink in the
Panama Canal channel. The acci-
dent occurred the morning of De-
cember 6 when the ship struck the
bank and sank in Cucaracha Reach,
less than 1 mile north of Pedro
-Miguel Locks.
When the vessel began taking on
water, she was pushed against the
bank by Panama Canal tugs so as
not be a hazard to Canal traffic.
The 455-foot former victory ship
came to rest on the bottom of tlhe
Cut with her main deck under 16
feet of water. The superstructure,
bridge, and other masts of the vessel
are out of water.
There was no interruption to
Canal traffic although there is con-
tinuing limitation to one lane move-
ment of vessels past the immediate
area of the sunken freighter.
The Sian Yung carried a cargo of
rice and cotton and was en route to
Taiwan. She is owned by the Chi-
nese Maritime Trust Ltd. and was
operated by the Orient Overseas
Line, which is represented locally
by Wilford & McKay, Inc.

How big do bananas grow in Pan-
ama? Well take it from Allison
Keutmann, who lugs a not so "chi-
quita" specimen across Amador
Beach, that the local variety tops
anything she has seen and definitely
would not fit in the refrigerator.
Allison, who is on her way to the
water, banana on shoulder, is the
daughter of Lt. Col. and Mrs. John
A. Keutmann of Fort Clayton.

To Have Cast of 40

"Oliver!" Named

Next UF Production

The most extensive talent hunt in
local theatrical history will get
underway when the Canal Zone
United Fund produces the musical
hit Oliver!
The producers will be searching
for a young boy to play the title
role in the musical "adapted freely"
from Charles Dickens' famous novel.
Originally produced in London
by Donald Albery, Oliver! moved to
New York for a successful run on
Broadway where it was produced
by David Merrick and Albery. It
was then made into a film and re-
ceived the Academy Award in 1969
as the year's most outstanding film.
The music, lyrics, and book were
written by Lionel Bart and the score
includes the powerful, "As Long
As He Needs Me"; the romantic
"Who Will Buy My Roses" and
"Where Is Love" and the uproarious
"I'd Do Anything," and "Oom-Pah-
Oliver! has a cast of 40, includ-
ing 16 children, 17 different scenes,
and 94 different roles. The 'many
moods of old London are recaptured
in an imaginative setting and in the
lovely and haunting scores.
While Oliver! is a freely adapted
version of Oliver Twist, it is sur-
prisingly loyal to both the letter and
spirit of the novel. Fagin is turned
into a shamelessly loveable rogue
but Nancy, Bill Siles, Mr. Bumble,
Mr. Sowerberry, the Artful Dodger,
and Widow Corney all live again
like revived Toby mugs capturing
the Dickensian mood of 19th Cen-
tury England.
Named to produce and direct the
musical extravaganza locally is
Bruce Quinn.
Quinn has produced all United
Fund productions since 1964. These
include: Oklahoma! (1961), The
King and I (1965), Music Man
(1966), My Fair Lady (1967), West

Side Story (1968), Show Boat (1969),
and Man of La Mancha (1970).
In addition, he directed My Fair
Lady and Man of La Mancha. He
is currently directing A Cry of Play-
ers for the Theatre Guild to be
produced next month at the Ancon
Production dates for Oliver! are
tentatively set for late August.

Council social center in Balboa, will

dance for all junior and senior high
school students.

sage" and "Virgin Snow" will pro-
vide music until midnight for the
dancing pleasure of the guests.
The "Gap" has recently been re-
decorated and air conditioned with

James Jones, Curundu Junior High
School shop teachers.

With 330 Students Aboard

Campus Afloat Visits

Isthmus on Way Home

A seagoing campus on which col-
lege students are taught subjects
ranging from Afro-American litera-
ture to marine biology arrived at
the Panama Canal last week and
docked in Balboa for 3 days.
The only college of its type in
the world, the Chapman College
extension called the World Campus
Afloat, was on the last leg of a 112-
day study voyage which began in
New York October 10 and will end
in Los Angeles on January 29. Dur-
ing the semester at sea, the Dutch
Ilag ship Ryntdamn carried the stu-
dents to 13 countries and stopped
at 14 ports.
The 330 students, who are gaining
an education in a unique way, may
be at sea literally but when it comes
to their studies, they have their feet
solidly on the ground.
The 70 members of the Chapman
extension faculty feel that this is one
of the most successful ways to train
the new citizens of the world and
to bring to the youth of America a
full knowledge of the problems and
culture of the people of other coun-

Though the students attend reg-
ular classes while the ship is at sea,
they make special field trips and are
offered a variety of studies when the
ship is in port.
While the Ryndam was tied up in
Balboa, the students poured off the
vessel to take part in a number of
activities which had been prepared
for them in advance by members of
the faculty. They included a special
tour to Panama with a guide to ex-
plain the history of Panama City; a
field trip to Barro Colorado Island;
a trip to Sitio Conte in Code Prov-
ince to observe the archeological
excavations and museum; and an air
trip to the San Bias Islands.
On board the ship lectures had
been arranged with officials of AID
and the Panama Ministry of Health
on health, nutrition, population
growth, and child care; a discussion
by Alberto Navarro, Panamanian
economist and a former advisor on
the Canal treaties concerning the
economic and political development
of Panama, including the special
problems of Panama-United States
relations: and a lecture by Jaime In-

gram, Director of Culture in Pan-
ama on the history and development
of literature, drama, and art in Pan-
Final examinations for the semes-
ter will be held as the Ryndam is
making its way along the WVest
Coast of Central America en route
to Los Angeles. A stop at Acapulco,
Mexico, was scheduled, but only as
a recreation period.
Lloyd S. Lewan, dean of the
World Canipus Afloat, said that the
students had taken to the new form
of education seriously and that the
standard of scholastic achievement
was high. At Christmas, for instance,
all entertainment was provided by
the students who also decorated the
ship for the holidays. The observ-
ance of Christmas did not include
the exchange of gifts at the request
of the students themselves.
Although the courses offered are
mostly in the field of liberal arts,
classes are given in life science,
ecology and marine biology. A fill
sized laboratory is provided for tlle
biology students.
(Continued on p. 4)

on the opening day of classes for
the spring semester of 1970.
A late registration period will ex-
tend through Monday, January 25,
after which students will not be per-
mitted to enroll, change classes, or
add classes to their schedules. Dur-
ing this period, students may enroll
and pay tuition during the hours of
7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Many class sec-
tions have had to be closed, but
there are still day, afternoon, and
evening class sections open to addi-
tional enrollment.
At the orientation period, new stu-
dents were welcomed by Dr. Glen
E. Murphy, Dean, and the Assistant
Dean, Margaret Gately, explained
various services and facilities offered
at the college.
David Baglien and Miss Marie
Weir, counselors, explained various
regulations and procedures impor-
tant to students in pursuing their
academic studies at the college. Fol-
lowing this general meeting, stu-
dents were taken on tours of the
campus and refreshments were
served in the student lounge.

nes, la "GrAfica Editora Col6n,
S.A.", de la Zona Libre de Col6n.
"Esa compaiiia se dedica 6nicamen-
te a la producci6n de trabajo fino y
especializado en la rama de libros,
por lo que los 3 aiios y 7 meses que
pas6 trabajando alli me sirvieron
como el mejor aprendizaje que pu-
diera encontrar", dice Clark. Pero



agrega que su mayor ambici6n, des-
de que estaba en el Colegio Abel
Bravo habia sido legar a trabajar
en el departamento de encuadema-
ci6n de la Imprenta del Canal de
PanamA. Asi que cuando se le pre-
sent6 la primera oportunidad de in-
gresar al servicio del Canal, lo hizo,
pero como aprendiz de pasacables
en la Divisi6n de Esclusas. Se tras-
lad6 a la imprenta apenas pudo.
EstA muy content con su traba-
jo v dice: "Es una labor en la que
todos los dias aprendo algo nuevo y
en la que me familiarize con el
equipo mas modern que usa mi
profesi6n". Hijo de uno de los lan-
zadores profesionales de beisbol mAs
notables que ha tenido PanamA,
Vibert Clark, Carlos Rogelio guar-
da grandes recuerdos de su proge-
nitor y tiene una colecci6n comple-
ta de fotografias de su gran actua-
ci6n en el beisbol de PanamA. Pero
no practice ese deported desde que
era nifo. De elevada estatura, juega
muy bien al baloncesto. Ha jugado
la posici6n de delantero en el equipo
Cerveza Atlas, que ha sido campe6n
durante 3 afios consecutivos de la
Liga Distritorial Mayor de la Pro-
vincia de Col6n, y cuando militaba
en la Liga Menor, tuvo el honor de
representar a su provincia en various
campeonatos nacionales.

Una universidad flotante en la
cual a los estudiantes universitarios
se les ensciian materials que van des-
de la Literatura Afro-Americana
hasta la biologia marina, lleg6 al
Canal de Panama la semana pasada
y atrac6 en Balboa durante 3 dias.
La inica universidad de su tipo
en el mundo, la extension del Chap-
man College Ilamada la Anica Uni-
versidad Flotante del Mundo, esta-
ba en la iltima etapa de un viaje
de 112 dias de studio que comenz6
el 10 de octubre en Nueva York y
finalizarA en Los Angeles el 29 de
enero. Durante ese semestre en el
mar, el barco Ryndam de bandera
holandesa llev6 a los estudiantes a
13 paises e hizo escala en 14 puer-
Los 330 estudiantes, que estin
beneficiAndose en educaci6n de una
manera singular, puede que estin
en el mar literalmente, pero cuando
se trata de estudiar, tienen sus pies
s6lidamente sobre cubierta.
Los 70 profesores de la extension
flotante del Chapman sienten que
esta es una de las maneras mis pro-
ductivas de adiestrar a los nuevos
ciudadanos del mundo y dar a la
juventud de America un conoci-
miento complete de los problems
y la cultural de los pueblos de otras
Aunque los estudiantes asisten a
cases regulares mientras el barco se
encuentra en el mar, hacen viajes
especiales al campo y se les ofrece
una variedad de studios cuando el
barco esta en puerto.
Mientras el Ryndam estaba atra-
cado en Balboa, los estudiantes sa-
lieron del barco para tomar parte en
una variedad de actividades que
habian sido preparadas para ellos
por adelantado por los miembros de
la facultad. Estas incluyeron un re-
corrido especial por PanamA con un
guia para explicar la historic de la
ciudad de PanamA; una excursion

de studios pricticos a la Isla de
Barro Colorado; un viaje a Sitio
Conte en la Provincia de Cocl6 para
observer las excavaciones arqueol6-
gicas y el museo; y un viaje por
avi6n a las Islas de San Bias.
A bordo del barco las conferen-
cias habian sido arregladas con fun-
cionarios de la AID y el Ministerio
de Salud de PanamA sobre salubri-
clad, nutrici6n, crecimiento de po-
blaci6n y cuidado del nifio; una ex-
posici6n por Alberto Navarro, eco-
nomista panameiio y ex asesor sobre
tratados del Canal relacionados con
el desarrollo econ6mico y politico
de PanamA, incluyendo los proble-
mas especiales de las relaciones en-
tre PanamA y los Estados Unidos; y
una disertaci6n por Jaime Ingram,
Director de Cultura en PanamA, so-
bre la historic y el desarrollo de las
artes en Panama.
Los exAmenes finales para el se-
mestre tendrAn lugar cuando el
Ryndam este navegando por la Cos-
ta Occidental de la America Cen-
tral en su viaje a Los Angeles. Una
escala en Acapulco, Mexico, estaba
senalada, pero s6lo como period
Lloyd S. Lewan, rector de la
Universidad Flotante del Mundo,
dijo que los estudiantes habian to-
mado seriamente la nueva forma de
educaci6n y que los indices de lo-
gros escolares eran altos. Para Na-
vidad, por ejemplo, todo el entrete-
nimiento fue proporcionado por los
estudiantes quienes tambi6n adorna-
ron el barco para los dias de fiesta.
La celebraci6n de la Navidad no
incluy6 el intercambio de regalos
por solicitud de los mismos estu-
Aunque los cursos ofrecidos estAn
en su mayoria en el campo de las
artes liberals, las classes se imparten
en vida cientifica, ecologia y biolo-
gia marina. Un laboratorio complete
esta a disposici6n de los estudiantes
de biologia.

Estudiantes a bordo del barco "Ryndam" escuchan una
disertaci6n ofrecida mientras el navio estaba atracado
en Balboa. Uno de los debates fue sobre salubridad,

Del Barco

A la Mina
El bar6metro es uno de los instru-
mentos de seguridad mas antiguos.
En los barcos, por ejemplo, ha servi-
dlo para predcecir tempestades. Ulti-
mamente ha pasado a prestar sus
scrvicios tambi6n a la industrial mi-
ncra, pues se ha descubierto que la
descarga del gas metano produce
camlbios repentinos en la presi6n
barom6itrica. El bar6metro, instalado
en cl interior de la mina, da una voz
dt alarm anticipada, pcrmitiendo
iniciar con mayor anticipaci6n las
medidas para prevenir explosions.

Este es el undecimo viaje conse-
cutivo de la Universidad Flotante
del Mundo desde que el program
comenz6 en el Chapman College en
Orange, California, en 1965. En
afios recientes el plantel ha usado
las instalaciones del Ryndam, un
transatlintico de 15.000 toneladas
que pertenece a la Holland America
El pr6ximo afio se espera que la
Universidad Flotante del Mundo
sea trasladada al Queen Elizabeth
que estA siendo convertido ahora en
una universidad flotante por una
compaiiia china en Hong Kong.
El Chapman College es un plan-
tel coeducacional en artes liberals
completamente acreditado por la
Asociaci6n Occidental de Escuelas y
Universidades y es miembro de las
Universidades Independientes de
California del Sur. Fundada en
1861, es una de las instituciones mais
antiguas de California en educaci6n
Los estudiantes vienen de todas
parties de los Estados Unidos. Pue-
den unirse a la Universidad Flotante
del Mundo despu6s que se han con-
vertido en estudiantes de buenas ca-
lificaciones en Chapman o en una de
un grupo de instituciones que co-
operan con Chapman.
Antes de que puedan ingresar a
esta singular extension universita-
ria, el Chapman consider el record
acad6mico y personal de cada can-
didate para determiner si se puede
ajustar academica y emocionalmen-
te al ambiente a bordo de un barco
y a la acci6n rnpida en la actividad
de los puertos.
A pesar de la libertad de pensa-
miento comin entire los estudiantes
modernos, las actividades en la uni-
versidad flotante se distingue por
las buenas normas de conduct. El
uso de drogas v bebidas alcoh6licas
esta prohibido; los camarotes estin
segregados, y un vestuario apropia-
do es requerido todo el tiempo.

Oliver" Sera . .
(Viene de la pdgina 1)
vertida en pelicula y recibi6 el Pre-
mio de la Academia en 1969, como
la pelicula mas sobresaliente del
ario. La m6isica, la lirica y el libreto
fueron escritos por Lionel Bart y,
entire las canciones, sobresalen la
vigorosa "As Long As He Needs
Me" (Tanto Como 61 me Necesi-
te); las romanticas "Who Will Buy
My Roses" (Quien ComprarA mis
Rosas) y "Where Is Love" (Donde
hay Amor), ademis de las tumul-
tuosas "I'd Do Anything" (Yo Haria
Cualquier Cosa) y "Oom-Pah-Pah".
iOliver! require un elenco de 40,
que include 16 niiios, 17 escenarios
y 94 diferentes papeles. Las cos-
tumbres del viejo Londres son pre-
sentadas en un scenario de much
imaginaci6n y en las canciones, que
son encantadoras e inolvidables.
A pesar de que iOliver! es una
version libremente adaptada de Oli-
verio Twist, es sorprendente ver
c6mo se adapta al espiritu y a la
letra de la novel. Fagin, un brib6n
amable y sinvergiienza, Nancy, Bill
Siles, el Sr. Bumble, el Sr. Sower-
berry, el "Artful Dodger" (El Tram-
poso Astuto) y la viuda Corney
vuelven a vivir lo mismo que las
muecas de Toby con lo que, al es-
tilo de Dickens, se capture todo el
sabor de la Inglaterra del Siglo XIX.
Bruce Quinn ha sido nombrado
productor y director de esta extra-
vaganza musical.
Desde 1964, Quinn ha producido
todas las presentaciones del Fondo
Unido de la Zona del Canal, que
son: iOklahoma!, El Rey y Yo, El
Vendedor de Ilusiones, Mi Bella
Dama, Amor sin Barreras, Show
Boat y El Hombre de La Mancha.
Ademais, Quinn dirigi6 Mi Bella
Dama y El Hombre de La Mancha.
Actualmente dirige A Cry of Players
(Un Grito de Jugadores) para el
Theatre Guild, que sera producida
el mes entrante en el Teatro de
iOliver! sera producida, proba-
blemente, a fines de agosto.
