Aid sought for Afghanistan refugees


mittee plans to publicize the cir-
cumstances of the Afghan refugees
during this special week and hopes
that organizations in the local U.S.
community will respond by or-
ganizing fund-raising events such as
luncheons and dinners, dances,
auctions, art shows and sports
events for the benefit of the
refugees. The committee's address is
Suite 4100, 345 Park Avenue, New
York, New York 01054. All con-
tributions are tax deductible.

Launch out
The Las Cruces, the Commis-
sion launch that is used for guest
trips that include a partial transit
of the Canal, will be out of service
for overhaul during the months of
July and August. The Saturday
trips will resume in September.


The Afghanistan Relief Com-
mittee has been formed by people
who wish to help alleviate the plight
of the almost 1,000,000 Afghan
refugees by raising funds for their
support. The organization, co-
chaired by Lowell Thomas, William
E. Simon and James A. Michener,
enjoys the patronage of a broad
spectrum of prominent Americans,
including three former U.S. am-
bassadors to Afghanistan.
A joint resolution has been
introduced in the House of Repre-
sentatives and in the Senate to
declare the week of July 21-27
"Afghanistan Relief Week." The
governors of six states and the
mayors of a number of major U.S.
cities have approved the week which
coincides with the July 19 beginning
date of the Moscow Olympics.

mn t he U' A


Sudbury, Massachusetts (1955)


While my brother wove red, white and blue crepe
paper streamers through the spokes of his bicycle
wheels and my sister painstakingly wrapped a long
piece of Indian silk around herself to make a sari,
my girlfriend and I experimented with pillow sizes
to find the "just right" combination that would
transform us into two circus fat ladies. We were all
getting ready for the Fourth of July parade.
My mother reminded us to bring the folding
chairs from the back of the house before we left
and to put them at the edge of the lawn along the
street, where she and Daddy could relax and enjoy
the parade as it passed by. We kids all hurried each
other, since we had to be at the town center by 9
a.m.
Upon arrival, the parade director gave each entry
a number that assigned them a place in line. My
friend and 1 were number 82 that summer, which
placed us well in the middle of the parade,
followed in line by a number of homemade floats,
decorated cars and trucks, and other costumed
people.
By 9:30 the day had already begun to show signs
of being a real Fourth of July sizzler, and the noise
and confusion were terrific. But, at 10 a.m., with
people and floats lined up neatly, the bands struck
up and the parade began winding its way along the
Post Road, and on to Concord Road to the high
school, where it would end in the sports field that
had been turned into a fairgrounds.
The parade passed the reviewing stand and was


judged by a local politician who later, with his shirt
sleeves rolled up, gave a rousing speech, mostly in
his own behalf, and distributed the awards. Not
surprisingly he gave first prize to the float
sponsored by the town newspaper. It was nothing
very special, just a car decorated with newspapers
and with two pretty cheerleaders sitting on the
hood.
Undaunted by not having received even an
honorable mention, my friend and I raced off to
the fairgrounds where we screamed as we rode on
the rides, tossed pennies in an attempt to win baby
chicks and bet dimes on games of chance.
Then, a boy I liked won a stuffed yellow monkey
and gave it to me. Later. I went home for more
money ("Please, Mom, please") and then back to
the fair in the evening to eat cotton candy and
hotdogs, meet with friends and scan the crowds for
my "young man," who finally arrived just as the
fireworks began. We sat together on the grass and
watched. 1 was twelve years old.
Fourth of July celebrations are just plain fun. It
is a holiday free of the constraints of rigid tradition
or prescribed behavior. There are no gifts to buy,
no huge special meals to cook. no new clothes to
purchase for the entire family.. Independence Day is
a good name for it in more ways than one, since in
a free and independent nation citizens are free to
celebrate or not to celebrate as they choose.
So what should you do? It's up to you.
Personally, I'm going down to watch the parade.


Meadville,
Pennsylvania (1936)

"We were seven kids, so the
Fourth of July was usually cele-
brated with a picnic at home and all
the neighborhood children would
come to our back yard. When we
got older the "thing to do" was to go
to Conneaut Lake Park about 20
miles away. The "summer" people
from Pittsburgh would be there. We
strolled on the boardwalk, and at
night we would watch the fireworks
and listen' or dance to the music of
one of the big bands, and one year
Perry Como was at the Park."






~~*i


Birmingham,
Alabama (1964)

"Growing up in Alabama, I
remember July 4th was a time for
family reunions. There was always
the traditional picnic, complete
with cold watermelon and hot
homemade barbecue. Relatives
gathered from all over to visit and
enjoy a whole day of good food and
good company. The parade always
seemed the same every year, but
everyone enjoyed the spirit of the
occasion, and that was the impor-
tant thing."


Orville, Ohio (1943)

"The firecrackers were the best
part of the Fourth of July. If you
had enough money, you could get
quite a variety. Ladyfingers, small
firecrackers attached in a line of 20,
could be separated and set off one
by one. Even better, you could set
the whole string off and watch it
leap about and make a lot of noise.
Then there were caps that made a
nice snap when you stepped on
them or you could hold one with a
pair of pliers and bang it against a
rock. Best of all, for noise, were the
cherry bombs. The fuse would burn
under water. You could light it and
then, with a slingshot, shoot the
cherry bomb into the creek or
maybe a swimming pool. When it
exploded, it made a terrific bang
and sprayed water all over the place.
Or you could put one under a tin
can and blow the can up in the air.
To get a real booming noise, you
could set one off in the bottom of a
'garbage pail. For night time, there
were sparklers, of course, and
roman candles, that when ignited
made a great whoosh and shot
different colored balls of fire into
the sky."



Burke County,
North Dakota
(1940)

"When I saw my first Fourth of
July fireworks, I was only five years
old, and I thought they were real
stars falling to the ground. I had to
run as fast as I could to try to catch
them. If I caught one. I planned to
take it home."


Boothbay Harbor,
Maine (1973)

"In a small seaside resort town,
every day in the summer is like a
holiday, but July 4th is something
special. Red white and blue streamers
and American flags flutter in the sea
breeze from the masts of the
sailboats in the harbor. Crowds
throng the narrow streets of this
sailing town or sit on the town green
and eat ice cream while a band plays
marches. When night comes, the
harbor lights up as firework's
explode overhead. Evenings are
chilly up there even in July, and
after the fireworks, people retire to
the historic Thistle Inn for a mug of
hot Irish coffee and a toast to the
health of Uncle Sam."


La Crosse,
Kansas (1956)

"The wind had quieted down and
it was a still day for a change. We
knew that the best part of the day,
the fireworks, would be a success.
We went out to the park for a
country-style potluck supper and
then in a marked off area, each
family set off its own fireworks. Not
all at once, but one by one, each
father would go up and set them off.
We were careful to have the children
standing behind and well to the
back, so that no one would get hurt.
My children were still very little
then, and watching their reaction to
the fireworks was part of the fun."


Atlanta, Georgia
(1948)

"When I was. about eight years
old, we lived in a really exclusive
area that had its own private club on
a lake. On the Fourth of July
everyone from the community
would go to the club to swim, &at
weiners and drink sodas and beer.
Then, in the evening we would go
out on the lake in boats and watch
the most spectacular fireworks. It
was marvelous."


Parkton, North
Carolina (1969)

"In the town of Parkton we
celebrated July 4th in good old
fashion style. Large old trees lined
the town's few streets, and flags
fluttered from porches and store-
fronts. Why drive your car to the
town picnic when you can ride a
horse instead? Families gathered in
the small town park to eat lunches
or to buy some of that delicious pit-
cooked barbecue offered by the
ladies'church group. Blankets were
spread and tables and lawn chairs
set up under the old shade trees."
"For us July 4th was a time to
gather and gossip and to have
summer fun. Have you ever tried to
climb a greased flagpole? How
about catching a squealing greased
pig? There was always the challenge
of trying to grasp a watermelon
while the fire department (all three
of them) defended the melon with
high pressure hoses. It all ended up
to be good clean fun in a sea of mud.
And what feels better on a hot dusty
day than cool mud between bare
toes. In Parkton July 4th was a day
not to hurry but to enjoy."

ABRAHAM LINCOLN
(1858)


by Willie K. Friar

"The pipe race will consist of
running 100 yards, picking up a
pipe, box of matches, and pack of
tobacco that have been placed on
the ground about 33 yards apart,
the winner being the first man to
cross the line with his pipe smok-
ing."
This race was one of the many
events on the program when
Goethals gave the Fourth of July
address in 1911 and was typical of
the fun and games that were a part
of the enthusiastic celebrations that
began on the Isthmus in 1906.
During construction days, enter-
tainment depended on the creativity
and initiative of the local residents
and the Fourth of July provided an
occasion, not only for patriotic
celebration, but for everyone on
both sides of the Isthmus to get
together for a day of band concerts
and contests of all varieties.
A look at the carefully executed
red, white and blue programs over
the years gives some insight into the
changing times on the Isthmus and
the world at large.
The Fourth of July was one of the
biggest events of the year and plans
started far in advance. Committees
were formed, responsibilities as-
signed, and by the time the fourth
rolled around, there was an im-
pressive program of entertainment
to suit all tastes.
By 1914, the program had grown
to 24 pages and featured tennis
matches, all types of track events


and an "aquatic wrestling match"
which was described as a "'ree for
all to take place on a greased 20-foot
floating platform between Piers 8
and 9. Winner to be the last on the
platform."
Scheduled for the evening was a
grand ball at 9 p.m. at Pier 9 in
Cristobal.
By 1917, World War I was
reflected in the thick program which
featured Uncle Sam in red, white
and blue in the centerspread. In one
hand he held a battleship which he

was placing in the Canal locks. In
the other. a pick as a tribute to the
builders of the Canal.
Movies first appeared in the 1918
celebrations with "War Pictures"
and "Charlie Chaplin"listed as the
titles of the films to be shown at the
Balboa Stadium.
The high point of the evening was
an open-air dance at the Adminis-
tration Building Promenade at 8:30
with music by the 15th Naval
District and the 5th Coast Artillery
bands.


In 1920, there was an exhibition
flight of a dirigible and by 1923, the
airplane had become a part of the
entertainment with an aerial ex-
hibition including stunt flying by
two "SE5s" over Limon Bay.
Instructions for the "Triangular
Airplane Race" included the infor-
mation that "the spare wheel and all
armament equipment may lie re-
moved; large size wheels will be
used and any type propeller."
"Miss Liberty" arrived by sea-
plane, accompanied by maids of

honor and train bearers. This was
followed by a baby contest.
To add to the festive atmosphere,
flags, horns, squawkers, patriotic
cockade hats for boys and Miss
Liberty hats for girls, blowout
ticklers, lollypops and Eskimo pies
were distributed to all the children.
Mule and "electric truck" joy rides
and raspberry punch were also
available.
The program advised that "tiny
tots are expected to be dressed in
red, white and blue (if possible)."
Spectacular fireworks were a part
of every program. The 1908 pro-
gram featured 46 different scenes
and a typical display was that of
1916 which included rockets, and
stars shot from submarines in
Limon Bay followed by a grand
display near Cristobal docks. Listed
on the program was a portrait of
Theodore Roosevelt, a portrait of
George Washington, American
beauty roses, a bicycle race, destruc-
tion of a battleship by submarine
and Niagara Falls.
According to Mrs. Bruce Sanders,
who came to the Isthmus in 1910,
and is visiting here this year, these
elaborate displays were made pos-
sible by donations from employees,
civic organizations and Panama
businesses.
Mrs. Sanders also mentioned
that in 1920 one of the highpoints of
the day, for adults and children, was
a ride on a submarine which
included submerging in Limon Bay.

Empleados del Canal recuerdan



El regocijo del Cuatro


en Estados Unidos

Sudbury, Massachusetts (1955)


Mientras que mi hermano colocaba banderolas
de papel cresp6n rojo, blanco y azul entire los rayos
de su bicicleta y mi hermana se envolvia
esmeradamente en una larga pieza de seda de la
India para hacerse un sari, mi amiga y yo
probibamos diferentes tamafios de almohadas para
encontrar la combinaci6n correct que nos
transformaria en dos mujeres gordas como las del
circo. Nos estibamos preparando para el desfile del
Cuatro de Julio.
Mi madre nos record que teniamos que traer
las sillas de tijera que estaban en la parte de atrds
de la casa antes de que parti6ramos y que las
colocAramos al borde del c6sped, cerca de la calle,
donde ella y papa podrian disfrutar
descansadamente del desfile cuando pasara por alli.
Los muchachos nos apurabamos el uno al otro, ya
que teniamos que estar en el centro del pueblo a
las 9 a.m.
A nuestra llegada el director del desfile le dio a
cada uno de los participants un n6mero que le
asignaba un lugar en la formaci6n. Mi amiga y yo
recibimos el nlmero 82 ese verano, lo cual nos
coloc6 bien en el medio del desfile, seguidas de una
cantidad de carros aleg6ricos caseros, autom6viles
y camiones decorados y otras personas disfrazadas.
Hacia las 9:30 el dia ya habia empezado a dar
sefiales de que iba a ser un Cuatro de Julio
excesivamente caluroso y el ruido y la confusion
eran impresionantes. Pero a las 10 a.m., estand-o la
gente y los carros aleg6ricos debidamente
alineados, las bandas de m6sica empezaron a tocar
y el desfile se inici6 a lo largo de la Calle Post,
hasta la Calle Concord y de alli hacia la escuela
secundaria donde terminaria en el campo de
juegos, en el cual se habia instalado una feria.
El desfile pas6 revista frente a la tarima y fue
juzgado por un politico local quien mAs tarde, con


las mangas enrrolladas, pronunci6 un vehemente
discurso, la mayor parte del cual era en su propio
favor y distribuy6 los premios. A nadie sorprendi6
que le diera el primer premio al carro aleg6rico
patrocinado por el peri6dico del pueblo. Este no
era nada especial, solamente un autom6vil
decorado con peri6dicos y dos chicas guapas
sentadas en el cap6.
Sin importarnos no haber recibido ni siquiera
una menci6n honorifica, mi amiga y yo corrimos
hacia los terrenos de la feria donde gritamos
mientras montibamos los paseos de diversion,
tiramos centavos tratando de ganar pollitos y
apostamos monedas de diez centavos en juegos de
azar.
Luego, un muchacho que me gustaba se gan6 un
mono de peluche amarillo y me lo regal6. Mis
tarde regres6 a casa a buscar mAs dinero ("por
favor, mamita, por favor"). Entonces,-de regreso a
la feria al atardecer para comer algod6n de az6car
y hotdogs, encontrarme con mis amistades y buscar
entire la gente a mi "joven", que finalmente lleg6
just cuando comenzaron los fuegos artificiales y
nos sentamos juntos en el past a mirarlos. Yo
tenia doce afios de edad.
Las celebraciones del Cuatro de Julio son
'simplemente diversion. Es un dia de fiesta sin las
restricciones de la tradici6n rigida o del
comportamiento ordenado. No hay que comprar
regalos, no hay que preparar enormes cantidades
de comidas especiales, no hay que comprar ropa
nueva para toda la familiar. Dia de la
Independencia es un buen nombre para esta fecha,
ya que en una naci6n libre e independiente, los
ciudadanos estAn en libertad de celebrar o no
celebrar, si les parece convenient.
iQu6 va a hacer usted? Eso es cosa suya. Por mi
parte, yo me voy a ver el desfile:


La Crosse, Kansas
(1956)
"El viento se habia calmado y por
variar, era un dia tranquilo. Sabia-
mos que la mejor parte del dia, los
fuegos artificiales, serian un 6xito.
Nos fuimos al parque para una cena.
al estilo campestre y luego en un
Area demarcada, cada familiar en-
cendi6 sus propios fuegos artificia-
les. No todos a la ve7, sino uno por
uno, cada padre iba y los prendia.
Teniamos el cuidado de que los
nifios se pararan detras de nosotros
y bien alejados para que no fuerana
sufrir ning6n dafio. Mis ninos
todavia estaban pequefios en ese
entoces y el ver c6mo reaccionaban
con los fuegos artificiales era parte
de la diversion".


Birmingham,
Alabama (1964)

"Recuerdo cuando crecia en
Alabama, que el4 dejulio era un dia
para reuniones de familiar. Siempre
habia el traditional picnic, comple-
to con sandia fria y barbacoa
caliente hecha en casa. Los parien-
tes Ilegaban de todas parties para
visitar y disfrutar de todo un dia de
buena comida y buena compafia.
El desfile parecia ser el mismo todos
los afios, pero todos disfrutaban del
espiritu de la ocasi6n y eso era lo
mis importante.


Orville, Ohio (1943)

"La mejor parte del Cuatro de
Julio eran los cohetes. Si tenias
dinero podias comprar toda una
variedad. Los "dedos de dama", que
era una tira de 20 cohetes pequeios,
podian scpararse y p.renderse uno a
u'no y aln.niejor, uno podia'prender
la tira complete y verla conmo
brincaba y hacia bastante bulla.
Luego habian las cApsulas, que
'estallaban cuando uno las pisaba o
se podian hacer estallar agarrAn-
dolas con unas'pinzas y golpeando-
las contra una piedra. La mejor de
todas, para hacer ruido, eran las
bombitas. La mecha se mantenia
prendida bajo el agua. Uno las
prendia y entonces la disparaba con
un biombo a una quebrada o tal vez
a una piscina. Cuando estallaba,
daba un estampido extraordinario y
regaba agua por todas parties. O
podias ponerla bajo una lata y
hacerla volar por los aires. Para
lograr un ruido verdaderamente
retumbante, se podia colocar una en
el fondo de un basurero. Por la
noche, por supuesto, habia cohetes
chisperos y velas romanas que
cuando se encendian daban un gran
silbido y lanzaban bolas de fuego de
diferentes colors hacia el cielo".


Atlanta, Georgia
(1948)

Boothbay Harbor,
Maine (1973)
"En un pequefio lugar de tempo-
radajunto al mar, todos los dias del
verano son como un dia de fiesta,
pero el 4 de julio es algo especial.
Banderolas rojo, blanco y azul y
banderas de los Estados Unidos
ondean con la brisa marina en los
mistiles de los veleros en el puerto.
Multitudes :llenan las estrechas
calls de este pueblo marino o se
sientan en el past y comen helados
mientras una banda toca marchas.
Cuando llega la noche, el puerto se
ilumina a media que los fuegos
artificiales estallan en lo alto. A6n
en julio, las noches son frias allA y
despues de los fuegos artificiales, la
gente se dirige a la hist6rica Thistle

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


July 3, I-.i I


"When an American says that he " ~
loves his countrY. he means not only /
that he loves the New England hills,
the prairies glistening in the sun, the
wide and rising plains, the great
mountains, and the sea. He means
that he loves an inner air. an inner
light in which freedom lives and in
which a man can draw the breath of
self respect. "
ADLAI STEVENSON
(1952)





"We must all hang together, or
assuredly we shall all hang sepa-
ratel "
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN
At the sighing of the Declaration
of Independence (July 4, 1776)




"Our reliance is in the love. of
liberty which God has planted in us.
Our defense is in the spirit which
prized liberty as the heritage of all
men, in all lands everywhere.
"The first of earthly blessings, Destroy this spirit and you have
independence." planted the seeds of despotism at
EDWARD GIBBON your own door."
"The Decline and Fall of the ABRAHAM LINCOLN
Roman Empire" (1858)


... and on the Isthmus


by Willie K. Friar

"The pipe race will consist of
running 100 .yards, picking up a
pipe, box of matches, and pack of
tobacco that have been placed on
the ground about 33 yards apart,
the winner being the first man to
cross the line with his pipe smok-
ing."
This race was one of the many
events on the program when
Goethals gave the Fourth of July
address in 1911 and was typical of
the fun and games that were'a part
of the enthusiastic celebrations that
began on the Isthmus in 1906.
During construction days, enter-
tainment depended on the creativity
and initiative of the local residents
and the Fourth of July provided an
occasion, not only for patriotic
celebration, but for everyone on
both sides of the Isthmus to get
together for a day of band concerts
and contests of all varieties.
A look at the carefully executed
red, white and blue programs over
the years gives some insight into the
changing times on the Isthmus and
the world at large.
The Fourth of July was one of the
biggest events of the year and plans
started far in advance. Committees
were formed, responsibilities as-
signed, and by the time the fourth
rolled around, there was an im-
pressive program of entertainment
to suit all tastes.
By 1914, the program had grown
to 24 pages and featured tennis
matches, all types of track events


and an "aquatic wrestling match"
which was described as a "free for
all to take place on a greased 20-foot
floating platform between Piers 8
and 9. Winner to be the last on the
platform."
Scheduled 'for the evening was a
grand ball at 9 p.m. at Pier 9 in
Cristobal.
By 1917, World War I was
reflected in the thick program which
featured Uncle Sam in red, white
and blue in the centerspread. In one
hand he held a battleship which he


was placing in the Canal locks. In
the other a pick as a tribute to the
builders of the Canal.
Movies first appeared in the 1918
celebrations with "War Pictures"
and "Charlie Chaplin"1isted as the
titles of the films to be shown at the
Balboa Stadium.
The high point of the evening was
an open-air dance at the Adminis-
tration Building Promenade at 8:30
with music by the 15th Naval
District and the 5th Coast Artillery
bands.


In 1920, there was an exhibition
flight of a dirigible and by 1923, the
airplane had become a part of the
entertainment with an aerial ex-
hibition including stunt flying by
two "SE5s" over Limon Bay.
Instructions for the "Triangular
Airplane Race" included the infor-
mation that "the spare wheel and all
armament equipment may b'e re-
moved; large size wheels will be
used and any tpe propeller."
"Miss Liberty" arrived by sea-
plane, accompanied by maids of

honor and train bearers. This was
followed by a baby contest.
To add to the festive atmosphere,
flags, horns, squawkers, patriotic
cockade hats for boys and Miss
Liberty hats for girls, blowout
ticklers, lollypops and Eskimo pies
were distributed to all the children.
Mule and "electric truck" joy rides
and raspberry punch were also
available.
The program advised that "tiny
tots are expected to be dressed in
red, white and blue (if possible)."
Spectacular fireworks were a part
of every program. The 1908 pro-
gram featured 46 different scenes
and a typical display was that of
1916 which included rockets, and
stars shot from submarines in
Limon Bay followed by a grand
display near Cristobal docks. Listed
on the program was a portrait of
Theodore Roosevelt, a portrait of
George Washington, ,American
beauty roses, a bicycle race, destruc-
tion of a battleship by submarine
and Niagara Falls.
According to Mrs. Bruce Sanders,
who came to the Isthmus in 1910,
and is visiting here this year, these
elaborate displays were made pos-
sible by donations from employees,
civic organizations and Panama
businesses.
Mrs. Sanders also mentioned
that in 1920 one of the highpoints of
the day, for adults and children, was
a ride on a submarine which
included submerging in Limon Bay.
