On October 18, the faculty gave a reception at the Masonic
Temple in Ancon to welcome the freshmen into the Junior College.
The reception was followed by the first Student Association dance.
Mr. Norris had promised the students that investment in a Student
Association ticket would pay sixty per cent interest. Everyone present
at this first dance agreed that it went far toward fulfilling Mr. Norris's
pledge.
At the end of the first semester, the president and the treasurer
of the freshman class withdrew from college. Paul Ridge then succeed-
ed to the presidency. On January 7, Mr. Ridge called the class together
so that a new vice-president and a new treasurer might be elected. Elmer
Huldtquist was chosen for the first office, and Esther Miller for the
second.


A freshman picnic was held Friday afternoon, January 16
Farfan Beach. The tide was high, the Sullivans' victrola furnished
music, and the hamburgers and soda hit the spot. Everything was
fect. Just ask the sophomores!


The unusual enterprise of the freshmen is illustrated by
during their college rings this year, instead of waiting, as
classes have done, until their sophomore year. What a class!

There is a Field Biology class of seven members, and each indi-
vidual has a nickname. They are the following: "Cousin" Hank,
"Cousin" Dorothy, and "Cousin" Eneas, also known as the "three lit-
tle mates"; "Caustic" Bouch ; and the "Doves." In this class we make
excursions to those sections of Panama which excel in biological and
economical interest. On one of these trips we made the greatest scientific
discovery of the ages, that of the "Missing Link."


Hoping to hear from you soon, and trusting that I have not bored

it is now, however. The field was about half the size it is at present
and the remainder of the space was only swampland. The boys had
their fun cutting sugar cane and playing hide-and-seek in the tall grass.
No P 40's or A 20's bothered them at all.
We went other places, too-Amador, Paraiso, and Madden Dam-
which are inaccessible to us now. It was a matter of course to do so.
Why, I could have excelled at espionage!

Ancient, ruined city.
Once you were a city,
Full of life and love and song.
Then came greedy pirates,
Gold-mad hungry pirates,
And hushed your lively song.
Deserted now, and empty,
Looking out upon the sea;
Yet filled with spirit-voices,
Humming with ghostly voices,
That are captive, yet are free.


PANAM

ANN HUNT


Panama Viejo, Panama Viejo, keeps singing in my brain
A wild, forgotten strain of what will never be again.
Panama Viejo, Panama Viejo, I have seen you in a silver cloak
Rain, gazing westward-westward-across the Spanish Main.

I can fancy all the terror, all the panic that you felt
As word went out in warning, rousing padres where they knelt
In your thick-walled sanctuary; and hushing all the merry-

FOREWORD THE CANAL ZONE JUNIOR COLLEGE AND WORLD WAR II B y ROGER C. HACKETT, C H A IRMAN OF THE FACULTY If, in this i ssue o f the Conqltistado1". the s t aff some tim es refers hum oro u s l y to c ivil defense a nd other suc h aspec t s o f the w a r these jest s in no way me a n th a t the C a n a l Zone Junio r College does not l ook upon the pre sent tragic w o rld s itu a tion with all due ser i ous n ess. The s tudent s a nd faculty of the Junior Colle ge re a lize full y th a t th e United State s i s engaged in a great w ar. Our re a liz a ti o n comes, to b e s ure by way of the new s p a pers a nd radi o rather th a n fr o m a n y p ersona l ex per ience. On the whole our way of life has b ee n c h a n ged surprisin g l y little by th e great conflict, for wh a t are m od ifi ed bl acko ut s a n d oc cas i o nal shortages of certain dispensable commodities compa r ed with the gna wing anxieties, incredible priv a ti o ns, a nd terribl e war experiences o f hundreds of millions of the people living in Europe Asia, a nd Africa -not to speak of the hundre d s of thousands who h ave a lr eady perished in the s trugg le. A list o f the contributi ons th a t th e Junio r College has made to the war effort so f a t might seem m eagre; but the exp l a n atio n i s that no re a l appea l for concrete se rvi ce ha s b ee n add r essed to th e Junior College as a n institution. When a nd if s u c h a n appea l co mes, there can be no doubt but th a t the re s pon se w ill b e a ll th at could be desired. In the me antime the Junior C ollege expects to m a k e it s war contributi o n the doing of as goo d a job as p oss ibl e in training students for wor k in the C a nal organization a nd in preparing th e m f o r entrance into the higher divisions of Ame ti ca n co lle ges a n d univ ers ities, w h ere they can better fit them s elve s for import ant war se r v i ces a nd for coping with the problem s both nation a l a nd internati o n a l which peace w ill surely bring.

THE MORNING AFTER By D OROTHY ALL1 NG AND DOROTHY JOHNSON Place: G irls' dormitory Time: The moming after a Patri e/te D allce, Si/llt1tion: T wo bedraggled gi4'1s are seated on the edge of a bed, their feet S1Ibmerged in a tub o f steaming water, Liste11! They 're saying some,hillg "Look out, you're slopping water all over th e floor." "Well, if you'd get your big feet Out of th e way, I wouldn t have to, I took as much of a bea ting as you did, " Don't brag about it, What if you are as popular as I am?" Ha h a Don t make me l augh. You didn t get asked to dance by a Texas jitterbug with rubber legs. "Maybe I didn t, but you didn t see da cute little fellow I had from de Bronx , "Oh, tell me more , "He used to woik in a foist-class shoit f actory on Toity -Toid Street,' and he's gOLng back there and introduce some tropical prints to be used as designs on men's shirts-the good neighbor idea you know, " Did you see Nancy's Romeo? He told her she had stars in her eyes, and started reeling off miles of quotations from Ke ats a nd Shelley. Gosh she certainly picked a whizz of a n intellectual type," Hmmmmm, there are different types of intellectuals, chum. The boy I h a d the third dance with had studied agriculture at his State U, for three years, and he h ad me sit out the fourth dance with him 50 he could tell me his theories f or improving the native stock of Panama " Did you get a dance with that misty-eyed piano-player? I actually felt sorry for the guy when he told me how melodies just run through his head all the time-and ther e's no piano near his camp, He s station ed in the hills, you know, "Oh, yes, the pianist, I told him to be sure to dedicate his first sonata to me a nd he said it would be a pleasure! " In spite of the fact that you ruined a pair of th ose stunning com missary shoes, you can t deny that you've never had so many 'cut-ins in your ILfe." That s ri g ht I felt like 'G l amour Pants personified, And you do meet so many different types of fellows." CONQUISTADOR PAGE SIXTYNINE
