THE WHITE HOUSE WASHINGTON Dear Friends: You young people who are obtaining your education in an American Junior College in the Republi c of Panama have a unique opportunity. At an impressionable age you are being thrown with other young people of ot h er nations and you hav e an opportunity to l earn their language and to study and to play with them I can on l y say that I hope it will make you when you return to your ow n country, better citizens and that you will be better fitted to advocate the things which you know help ed you to cooperate and enjoy the companionship of the you ng people you met in Panama. The future of the world lie s in the h ands of young people. Their interest and understanding of the prob l ems of the rest of the world and their abi lit y to cooperate with citizens of other nations will probably be responsible for what h appens in history during the next few years. I wish for you the satisfaction of knowing that your present opportunities lead you to greater achievements in the years to come. ELEANOR ROOSEVELT PAGE T W O

TO THE FUTURE BY SHIRLEY CUTTER We learned of stars, of flowers of bees And ways of life and histories. In every class, some way or other, We learned to value one another. Sometimes we thought the p ath seemed long, But really we were very wrong Just yesterday we climbed to college And opened books of higher knowledge. Today we wear our cap and gown; Tomorrow we must put them down That we may br ave this thing called living Forget to t ake and start our giving. There are those of us who must Put our plans away, and trust Th a t they will keep uncil we're done With airp l ane, cannon, knife, and gun. L a ter, when this war is through And once again the sky is blue We'll raise our eyes and look ahead Without this gnawing, killing dread We'll build a world so good and strong Th at right will ever conquer wrong.

Red Hutton, at left tackle was s m all but potent ; many a time he wou l d bucket through men twice his size to nai l the ballc arrier for a loss. At right guard Jicome was just plain bad n ews to oppos ing line-men. Tipping the scales at 218 he w a s the clOSESt thing to a n irresi s tible for c e on the field. In Jennings Turne r college had rhe best center on the C a nal Zone.

Bob Medinger, lanky ap d deceptive proved to be an excellent pa sss n a tcher as well as a sterling defensive m an. In the backfield the team was run by qu a rterba ck Conrad HoriQe a fine bloc ker and ready defensive player. At right h a lf O scar Bilyeu proved a dangerous scoring threat. Osc a r's spe t d enabled him ro sweep wide a r o und the e nds for good ga ins, always thre a t e ning ro go all the way. At left half Bob Kunkel was a big factOr in the defensive game of the college; his b oo ming punts kept the opposition co ntinu a lly on its own goal line while offensively he had no equal f or l eap ing high to drag down passes the defense co uld n o t re a c h Jim K enealy, fuil-ba c k was the only hold ove r from last year's team in the b ac kfield. Althou g h he tOted the ball occasionally, he was primarily a pass-slinger. The fir s t game college played was aga in s t CHS, a nd it was a reg ul a r gridiron thriller! CristObal fin a lly won o ut, as it con nected with a rouchdown pass in the final play o f the ga me. CHS sco red first: a field goal in the fir s t quarter. College came through to score in the second quarter on a pass from Bilyeu to Stempel a nd m oved into the le ad, 6-3. All through th e third a nd fourth qu a rters the game was deadlocked until the fin a l play, when s nat c hed the game o ut of the fire winning 10--6. The next week CZJC fought a g ruelin g 0-0 tie agai nst a heavier, more expe rien ced BHS team.

DORM DWELLERS BOYS Residents of the boys' dormitory this year were Oscar Bilyeu Ed mond Wachtel Martin Kendziorek, James Talboy James Lakas Victor Ossa Alvin Lim, Alex Kam, Alfred Young and Contad Horine The housemother was Mrs. Winifred Ewing. Mr. McNair self-described as the cross old man, a lso dwelt in the dormitory. The group was highly cosmopolitan. In a single evening one could hear Chinese Greek Ca talan and German, not to mention Spanish and English spoken over the dormitory telephone Practical jokes were rife. The skepy student often found his bed taken apart. Sometimes the bed clothes were even soaked with hydrogen sulphide. Studying would stare at about ten p .m. At e l even some of the boys would retire, while others determined to study late would stroll to the Clubhouse for black coffee At about two however everyone would be in bed and all would be quiet, except for twO or three som nambulists and somniloquists. Occasion a lly all the boys be c ause of pressure of work, would agree to stay aw a ke all night. Usu a lly however the l azier ones would fall asleep while studying wou l d deteri o r a te into a bull session At eight a.m. the boys dreams would be sha ttered by a band which practices on the first floor giving a W a gnerian tone to the simplest pieces Money, like most ot her things, was common property in the dorm. Hence gambling was rare What is the use of winning if the loser bor rows your winnings and nev er repays them ? By mid-week most of the money would be gone. Consequently some studying would be done on Thursdays and Fridays. All in all, dormitory life is fun, being marked by friendliness and esprit de corps. GIRLS At the beginning of this year, girls dorm life just w a sn't what it used to be. Only cwo students, Anita Margulis and Blanca Facdol, rattled around in the whole building. Try as they would Nita and Blanca could not bring the old dorm spirit to life. At mid-semester Flora and Jilma Noriega joined their meager forces and life brightened up You could now occasion ally hear an echo of the former din usually emanat ing from the dorm but on the whole the girls led an unusually calm a nd peaceful life in 1944-45.
