The 1954 CONQUISTADOR is dedicated to Dr. Lawrence Johnson, an


outstanding educator, community leader, and friend.


His sudden death while


he was vacationing in the United States was a shock and a loss to all.
Dr. Johnson served the Canal Zone schools for twenty-three years.


was Superintendent from


1948 until his death in


1953.


Johnson will always be remembered for his ready words of cheer








MR. ROER C. HACKETTan



MR. ROGER C. HACKETT


What do you want out of life?


,.. **..*
/* 'F
A * s


In general, it


may be said that everyone desires to obtain certain
"minimum essentials" from life, and there is no rea-
son to suppose that CZJZ students are any different


from anyone else in this respect.


lists of such


"minimum essentials"


Although any two


would probably


differ in some respects, it is probable all would con-
tain such items as vocational competence and con-


tentment,


economic


self-sufficiency,


a satisfactory


marital and social adjustment, and a respectable and
respected place in the individual's local community.
Rather naturally, however, practically all individuals


look forward


to achieving or obtaining


something that will go beyond these


sentials,


"minimum es-


and not infrequently, far beyond.


In fact,


nearly everyone at times dreams of becoming either
immensely wealthy or powerful, or of attaining na-
tional, and even international, recognition and fame
in some particular vocational or avocational line and
not a few extend such dreams into the field of omni-


potent superman!


DEAN HACKETT


There is no great harm in this


method of adjustment to the actual frustrations and


disappointments


which


everyone


experiences


time to time in life (the psychologists call it adjust-
ment by imagination, or withdrawal from reality) un-
less the individual devotes so much time to his day
dreaming that he fails to distinguish between reality
and fantasy. But the few who do reach this stage are
in for real trouble.


Now what are the chances that you will get out of life what you want? The chance
that you will reach the rarefied heights of great wealth, power, or fame, are indeed
small, but the chance that you will obtain your "minimum essentials," and even some-


thing more, are excellent much better chances than the


average


man will obtain


them, in fa
that there


.cr. There are statistics in abundance to back up this assertion. They show
is a direct correlation, for instance, between an individual's total lifetime


earnings and the number of years of formal education completed; that an individual
with some college education is more likely to "make" such works of reference as WHO'S
WHO IN AMERICA, or its numerous specialized companion volumes such as WHO'S
WHO IN ENGINEERING, WHO'S WHO IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE, WHO'S
WHO IN EDUCATION, and scores of others, than are individuals with no college edu-
cation; and that marriages in which one or both of the partners have had some college
education are much more likely to be lasting than ones in which neither party has been
to college.

In a general way, it may be said that the careers thus far of the 2,500-odd day
students who have been enrolled in the CZJC attest to the truth of the above statistics.
With few exceptions, all have achieved honorable places in their respective communi-
S .r . j ** r*










From an all-inclusive point of view, "happiness" may be thought of as the aim
of life. It is appropriate to quote here, therefore, a widely published description of the
"happiest man": "The happiest man in the world is the common everyday chap who
makes his own living, pays his bills, has a little money as he goes along, but doesn't
strive to get a corner on the local output, and is a slave neither to ambition nor society.
He loves his God and his fellow man; thinks 'there is no place like home,' the haven
of rest; prefers the company of his family to that of anyone else; never has to sit up
nights to poultice his conscience, believes in the doctrine of live and let live, and, when
he encounters one of the needy, he doesn't stutter with his pocketbook. The plain man
is happy to be satisfied and does not spend the best of his life yearning for things four
sizes too large for him." . May all members of the Class of 1954 be able to say, in
due time, "This fits me!"







an


omen


DR. DOROTHY MOODY


How often in the past have I, in lame prose or
creaking verse, wished godspeed to a bevy of stu-
dents, towards whom I felt much more warmly than


my stilted


words


would indicate!


How frequently


have I fallen back on one of my favorite quotations:


"And gladly


verse


-but no! I will not quote that


again! Look it up, if you would know the rest


of it, in Chaucer's portrait of the Clerk of Oxford, in
the General Prologue to the Canterbury Tales. And
unfortunately, in the nick of time, I have found an-
other line to quote, different, at least, if not precisely
new. It is, I believe, from Erasmus: "Teach what you


DR. MOODY


yourself loved to learn.


" And this saying gives me


an opening for what will be at once a tribute to, a
wish for, and admonition to the Class of 1954.

I myself studied lovingly the art of writing English, and for those of my students
not inconsiderable in number, who study this subject in the same spirit, I always feel
a special glow. The present graduating class was not without such members, and to them
I pay the tribute of a gratified teacher. The romance of literature is especially for the


young, but may the horizons


of these students continue


through their lives to be


brightened by the gold of deathless poetry and prose.


"The romance of literature
put it much more effectively:


is especially for the young,


wrote, but Coleridge


Verse, a


breeze amid blossoms straying,


Where Hope clung feeding, like a bee-
Both were mine! Life went a-maying
With Nature, Hope, and Poesy,
When I was young!


And that


is my wish not only for the literature-lovers of the present class, but for


all its members, they they may all have ALL the joys that belong especially to youth!
"Youth," said Bernard Shaw, "is such a wonderful thing that it is a crime to waste
it on children and adolescents." But I do not begrudge it to you and I hope that the
days of your youth may indeed be the days of your glory.


Good


as youth is, however, it is not the whole story.


R. H. Stoddard wrote:


"When youth, the dream, departs


It takes something from


our hearts


And it never comes again.


. . But he added:


are stronger,


we are


better


Under manhood's sterner reign."
And this brings me to my admonition, the name
of this book is Conquistador. You, too, in youth and
ate. should be a conaueror. a conaueror of pettiness.







eLean of v ten

MR. JAMES A. LYONS

Every college has a basic educational philosophy.
This philosophy may be either good or bad: it may
foster intellectual and ethical growth, or it may have
a stultifying and detrimental influence on the stu-
dents.


Over the years, the Canal Zone


Junior College


has naturally developed its own educational philoso-


This philosophy is not


set down in


so many


words for the student to read, but it can be detected
from the actions and the attitudes of the instructors.

As a faculty, we feel that one of the functions of
our Junior College is to accept any high school grad-
uate from a four-year accredited school, no matter


what his scholastic record may have been.


MR. JAMES A. LYONS


We form


no advance judgments based on a perusal of his high
school file. This willingness to give everyone a chance
to make a fresh start may account for the fact that


many of our students do measurably better work than they did in high school. Some
who came to us with "D" averages have even been graduated with honors.

As a faculty, we expect students to run their extracurricular activities with a mini-
mum of supervision. All clubs are required to have faculty sponsors, but for the most


part the faculty member is in a


stand-by


status, ready and willing to offer advice


when it is requested or urgently needed, but definitely


out of the picture at other


times. We feel, too, that student association dues belong to the students and that they
themselves should be responsible for their expenditure. This freedom from faculty dom-
ination sometimes leads to lamentable mistakes, but from such errors of judgment we
think the students gain valuable experience that will go with them into later life.

Students who transfer to colleges in the States are frequently in a better position


to evaluate some


phases of our philosophy than are those whose college experience


is confined to the Canal Zone.


Time and distance have given them perspective, and


they wonder why they did not appreciate more fully the good features of CZJC while
they were in attendance. Especially do they mention the informality and camaraderie
of the faculty. We don't think of our relations with the students in quite those terms,


although we do try to make ourselves approachable and


to talk to.


This friendli-


we hope, will lead to mutual understanding and sympathy, qualities that are vital


to a good educational climate.
the best measure of our success


The extent to which we secure this rapport is perhaps


as a faculty, for,


as some anonymous poet


so aptly wrote:


"When engines in a factory stop
We search the things from base
But when man breaks,
'Tis very seldom that we pause


to top;


To talk to him to find the cause
Of his mistakes.
Yet we might help him could we find
The thing that's preying on his mind."

No, it's my adopted paradise, Panama.

In 1945 the Gamma Chi Sorority received official recognition. Thirteen sophomore
girls formed this sorority, which is both a social and a service organization. The colors
of the sorority are green and white.
Throughout the year the Gammas have sold sodas at the games, helped to plan
school dances, sponsored a party for the whole school, ushered at activities and helped
in other services for the college.
At the beginning of the year a tea was held for all the women in Junior College.
The members then voted a certain number of girls in and the newcomers were then
initiated. In the near future another tea will be held; however, not more than twenty-
five girls can be in the sorority at one time. All sophomore girls who show a desire
to join the sorority are pledged.
Some of the events enjoyed by the Gammas are informal parties, a picnic in the
interior, a cake sale, a dinner at the Army-Navy Club, a party for the whole college,


and a tea for the Gammas


mothers.

The members of the Pep Club appeared at games to back their teams. They also
ushered at activities, helped organize school dances, sold refreshments at the games
and dances and rendered to the school as many services as possible.

These are the hoarse voices after a game. These are the students who are with
the team, win or lose. These are the students who have the "school spirit."
This year the Pep Club yelled cheers for victory and contributed much spirit at
the pep rallies and games.

The Pep Club was led by Velma Medina, Chairman, and Bill Bingham, Co- Chair-


man.

H e had an unf ailing int e r est in a ll schools and in the community. He was a model to all who knew him The Canal Zone Junior College students and faculty mourn the loss of a true friend.

:J)ean MR. ROGER C. HACKETI Wha t do you want our of life ? In genera l it m ay be said that everyol1e desireJ to obtain cerrai n "minimum esse nti a l s" from life a nd there i s n o r ea so n to sup p ose that CZJZ students are a ny diffe rent fro m anyone e l se in this respe ct. Although any tWO lists o f such "minimum essentia l s" would probably differ in some respe([s, it is probable all would can rain such items as vocational compere nce a nd can tenement, ec o n omic se lfsuffi cie ncy, a satisfactO r y m a rit a l a nd socia l adjustment, a nd a respecrable and respeCt ed pl ace in the individual's l oca l community Rather n atu r ally, however, practically all individuals look forward to ac hieving or obtaining fr o m life someth in g rhat will go beyond these "minimum es seotia is," a nd nOt infrequently, f a r beyond In fact ne a rl y eve r yone at times dream s of becoming either immen sely wealthy o r powerful or of attain ing nali o n a l a nd even inte rn at ion al, rec o gniti o n and fame in some particul a r vocational or avocatio n a l line a nd nor a f ew extend such dreams inro the field of omni pOtent supe rm an! There i s n o great harm in this method o f adj u s tm ent ro the ac tu a l fru s tration s a nd disappointments which everyone experiences from t im e ro time in life (the psychologi s t s call it adjust ment by im agi nati o n o r wirhdrawal from r ealiry) un less the individu a l devores so muc h time to his d ay d r eaming that he fails to disting uish between re a liry pnd f antasy But the few w h o do re ach this stage a r c in for r ea l trou ble DEAN HACKETI NO\\1 what a r e the c han ces th a t -Y01l will get our of life w h at you want? The cha n ce [hat you will re ac h the rarefied heights of g r ear w ea lth, power, o r f ame, a re indeed small, but the cha n ce th a t you will obtai n your "minimum essemials," and even something more, are excellent -muc h better chances than the "av erage" man will obtain them, in fact. There are statistics in abunda n ce to back up this assertion. They show that there is a d ir ect c o.rrelation for instance between an individual's tOtal l ifetime earnings a nd th e number o f years of formal edu catio:1 completed ; th at a n indi v idual with some college educat i o n i s more lik ely to "make" suc h works o f r e fer ence as WHO'S WHO I N AMER I C A O r its numerous specialized compan ion volumes such as WHOS WHO I N ENG INEERING, WHO S WHO IN GOVERNMENT SERVICE, WHO S WHO IN EDUCATION, a nd sca res o f Others, th a n a re individua l s with no college edu cation, and that marriages in which one or bOth o f rhe parmers h ave h a d some c,?lIege educatio n are much m ore likely t o be l asting th a n ones in which neither parry has been to college. In a general way, i t m ay be said that the careers rhus f a r of rhe 2,5 00 odd day students who have been enrolled in the CZJC anest to rhe (furh of the a bove statistics. With few exceptions, all ha ve ac hieved honor a ble pla ces in their respective communities and i n their vocational Jives. A few h ave re ac hed a r e latively high l eve l in the latter although none has achieved n a ti o n a l r ecog niti o n T his ca n b e attribut ed a t least in part to rhe facr rhat no one has r eally h ad time to d o thi s, s in ce the o l dest g r aduates, member s of the C l ass of 1935, have now been "Out o nly 19 yea r s and are still presumably under the age of 40.

From an aU inclusive point of view, "happi ness" may be thought of as aim of life lr is app r opriate co quOte here ther e f ore, a widely published description of the happiest man": The happiest man in the world is the common everyday chap who makes h is own living pays his bills, has a little money as he goes along, bue doesn't strive to get a corne r o n the l ocal output and is a slave neithe r co ambiti o n n o r society. H e loves his God and hi s fellow man ; thinks 'there is n o place like home,' rhe haven o f rest ; prefers the company of his family co rhat o f a nyone else ; never has ro sit up nights co poult i ce his con scie n ce, b e l ieves i n rhe doccrine o f l ive and let l ive and, whe n he e n counters o n e o f the n eedy, h e doesn' t s{U[(er wit h his pocke t book.
