MATER


Sing you your northern college, on mountain, shore or plain,
But dream of magic islands, set in the Spanish main.
Ours are these magic islands, and ours the emerald deep,
Of jungles hung with orchids, where gleaming reptiles creep.
For you the far-off campus where snowfalls deck the pine,
Where spring restores the lilac and autumn glows like wine,
For us eternal summer; for us the sapphire sea;
The vivid scarlet blossoms; the frangipani tree.


CHORUS


O Canal Zone Junior College, no matter where


we rove,


Adorn the shores where pirates concealed their treasure trove.


O trade winds of the tropics, O


Commemorate our

INTRODUCT


Living in the Canal Zone and Panama has been a unique experience for many of
us; in fact either the Canal Zone or Panama has been our home. Because the average
graduate will leave here, possibly never to return, we have attempted not only to present
this year at Junior College with its many activities and experiences, but also to give
you a small reminder of life in Panama and the Canal Zone. With vivid photographs
representing the many typical, well-known, and beautiful sites of local and national
interest, we hope that we have succeeded.
Our two-year sojourn at the Canal Zone Junior College has been a rewarding one,
and we sincerely feel that as a result of our stay here, we can look forward with enthu-


siasm and backward with pride.


To the Freshmen we wish the best of luck next year,


and we feel confident that they will carry on in an honorable manner and take especially
good care of the teachers for us.
Perhaps some time in the near future, when you are nostalgic for the Canal Zone
and Panama, you will eagerly page through your 1959 Conquistador and enjoy remi-
niscences of the unforgettable life you once led here.

MESSAGE TO THE CLASS OF 1959
2,500, 2,000, 1,500, 1,000, 500, 300, 250, 200, 150, 100, 75, 50, 25, 10

The above figures represent the anniversaries that are most frequently celebrat-
ed whether they be of outstanding events, or the births, or deaths of institutions


or famous individuals,, for


instance.


Events which occur


in regular


series, such


the graduation of classes from schools, colleges, and universities, the running of well-
known horse races, the convention of national and international organizations, etc.,


also have their
appearing above.


"significant


numbers"


which


correspond


to the


anniversary


years


The next-to-the-lowest of these


"significant numbers" is


25 and the Class of 1959


is therefore particularly distinguished in that it is the 25th one to be graduated.


The


number of its members bring the total of the college's graduates to more than 800.
The members of the first 24 classes constitute a "goodly company" who are now


widely scattered geographically and vocationally. They ar
and welfare of the world and some of them are already
speak. I am confident that the members of the Class of


e contributing to the wealth


"making their mark,"


so to


1959, by virtue of its special


numerical pre-eminence, will prove themselves to be worthy conpanions to the hund-
reds of their predecessors. More, we hope and think that some of them will be "heard
from." '
But we shall not stop with the 25th class. It is now a little early to look forward

This, for the class of fifty-nine:
You are the twenty-fifth in line;
For nineteen hundred and thirty-three
Was the natal year of the new J. C.,
And a fourth of a century had to pass
To give it this anniversary class.


When Junior College days are past
And you are stalking a career,
What memories will hold you fast,
In dreams, what faces will appear?


Dean


You will be missed, now you are going;
But reaping always follows sowing.
Horizons beckon, and teachers who stay,
Can only wave you along the way,
To your marvelous twentieth century place
Of nuclear fission and widening space.

What will you cherish from C. Z. J. C.,
As you travel along through the century?
Lockers and notebooks, blackboards and classtime?
Formals, athletics, bridge games and pastime?
Whatever you do, wherever you be,
May you be happy, aspiring, and free!

For you are our anniversary class.
Decades will come and decades will pass;
But our remembrance will mutually be,
Like the thrilling greens of the mango tree,
Living and fresh for a talisman,
Of matches fought and of knowledge won.

D.M.

CLASS PROPHECY


Main Headquarters
Sweltering, Perdition
Juvember 42, 2031


Dean of Junior College
Balboa Heights
Balboa, Canal Zone
To whom it may concern:


Since you have been so kind in honoring me as a symbol in your school.


the Canal


Zone Junior College, I have been writing an annual letter to you telling the outcome
(fate) of most of the alumni at the death of the last one.
This year, my staff and I were really overwhelmed at the percentage of the class
that arrived at our sanctuary down here. Today the last soul of the graduating class of
1959 finally arrived here, making it 100 per cent! Since the first's arrival way back in
1967, I've been compelled to recruit almost one-fourth of my demons as policemen to
keep them from raising so much hell.
I will not tell the exact years that each one died, but in some cases, I'11 mention
how and when they expired, since some gave me quite a battle. This account will begin
in the chronological order of deaths.


Sizzlingly yours,
Z. Green Devil
sts/ZGD



Mr. Bill Black is the one who joined us in 1967. He became a famous psychiatrist


specializing in women's emotional problems; th


ey finally killed him.


Poor Dr. Helen Nita. She finally became a college professor at Yale University but
remained a frustrated old maid.
Miss Caroline Hail made a fast million by becoming a bubble dancer. She obtained
a position in the most exclusive nightclub on earth-the Tuberien in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Mr. Gaspar Alvarado became king of the United Kingdom of America in 1975.
He established Lincoln, Nebraska, as the capital city. His kingdom included Canada,
North, Central, and South America.
The terror of the major cities on the major planets was Boss Ernest Bellino, king
of the underworld and the most slippery and wanted racketeer of the 20th century.


Mr. Raymond "Spider


" Oakley became an invincible lawyer. He spoke all of the


major languages fluently (more or less) and would take any


case


for a price.


Mr. Roberto Chan was a top nuclear scientist of the 20th century in the United
Kingdom and sold nuclear secrets to the enemy.
Mr. James Whitman, official international spy (he led three lives) in His Majesty's
employment, apprehended Chan.


At the same time, Alonso Ivan Saenz (sky) was dictator of the U.


S. S. R. after


a conspiratorial overthrow in 1980, replacing communism with Saenskyism.


Mr. Brian Cox became an official executioner at Sing


Sing and always wore a


sadistic smile. (I wonder why!).
Miss Cynthia Laverne Orr had long been the society leader in Lincoln, Nebraska.
She was a rich aristocratic social butterfly. and her home was a small replica of the





Mr. Herb Schneider really surprised us all by going over to the Near East, drilling
for oil, and becoming Sultan Herby I (with a harem).
And Barbara Elich? She was president of Herby's harem.
Miss Nancy Bryant's nervous gab finally got her somewhere. She finally became a
noted and dreaded lobbyist in the Lincoln Upper House.
Miss Carolyn Despain (zee) was an eligible but elusive millionairess who had a
penthouse on the 42nd floor of the Waldorf Astoria Expansion, often frequented by
many hopeful bachelors.
Mr. Edward Fitzgerald, after traveling extensively in Brazilian jungles, discovered
a new process of head shrinking. He returned with his dark secrets and started lecturing
on the psychological reactions to the process.


Miss Claudette


Toussieh, soon after her graduation from your notorious-I mean


notable-school, became the most sought-after interior decorator.


Miss Anita Schneider became a professional quiz contestant and won 220 consecu-
tive quiz shows (with no help from the audiences or otherwise).
Mr. John Richard Daniels became a distiller (bootlegger). He abducted artist Olga
Rodriguez, went into a South American jungle, and built a regular brewery on the river.

Mr. Donald Alexander really shot the bull during his life. He became a renowned
toreador. He shrinks away when he sees me or my staff; since a bull gored him to death,
he can't stand the sight of horns.
Miss Gladys Miller was a rich widow. She wheedled her admirers into investing
heavily in stocks that she half-owned, and then liquidated them.


Judi McCullough, the dazzling queen of the


international skin divers

citation, was fatally wounded when she


was mistaken for an enemy submarine.


Miss Milly Gibbs was an eminent beautician and fast on the way to becoming a


professional hair stylist when she


up her career for a Moon man.


Miss Jo Ann Harte, Miss Gibbs partner, went to Mercury after Miss Gibbs married.
But everyone on Mercury was bald-headed. She tried (by many devious and illegal
means) to grow hair on their scalps, but gave up when her latest experiment backfired

and brought her to this


happy home


in several pieces.


The famed June Barlow became a fantastic Olympic swimming championesss." Her
greatest feat was swimming the length of the Mediterranean in four days.


Miss Beverly Best and Miss Barbara Carter were housewives. Miss Carter


was the


world renowned hula-hoop championesss" in '62. Also, on the side, Miss Best started
a little restaurant called The Best Place, which developed into a chain of restaurants
all over the world.


Miss Dolores Kosan

was a hair designer. She became distinguished in Paris in the


when she started the wig rage.


Miss Carolyn Corn became an eminent geologist.

Mr. Gordon


Legge became the top-ranking Admiral in the U.K. Navy. No one


knew that Mr. Legge had an incurable weak stomach.


Miss Elma Kent worked in Troney Department Store in Lincoln, the most exclusive
on earth. As a hobby, she analyzed mummies.


Mr. Eric Larsen was a big game hunter. His motto was,
He hunted everything that walked, swam, or flew (he still hu

Mr. John Riley was a beachcomber, or, at least, he was believed to be. In reality,
he was a philosopher.
Miss Dorothy Metzger was a retail buyer of Maiden Form Bra until the company's
business sagged in 1977.


And today, Miss Jeanette Orr has


ust joined us. She was a novelist up until 1975,


when books became so unpopular and out-dated that no one read anymore.


Thus ends the account of the class of
this letter but we will be ever grateful to yoL


1959. Our correspondence terminates with
1 for the "nice" crop that you sent us.

THE TROPICAL COLLEGIAN


Nancy Bryant, Editor
Gloria Tait, Tech. Mngr.


The Tropical Collegian is a literary magazine published four times a year or more
by the students of the Canal Zone Junior College. It contains articles, short stories,
poems, and other selections written by the staff, faculty, and other students of the College.

The staff meets on Tuesdays at 12:30 p. m.; and under the expert guidance of the
literary advisor, Dr. Dorothy Moody, they plan each issue of the magazine. After the
copy has been written, corrected, and rewritten, it is turned over to Mr. Lyons, the fi-
nancial advisor, and his secretarial class. When the stencils have been cut and run off,
the material is assembled and distributed by the staff.

There is much work involved in putting out a good issue, but everyone concerned
feels that it is a very rewarding task when the final copy is out.

events are scheduled throughout the year as opportunities arise.

Among the various field trips taken were an overnight jungle excursion, trips to
Madden Lake and El Valle, and a trip to Barro Colorado Island is in the planning process.

VOLLEYBALL ALL STARS


VOLLEYBALL


What fun the girls had during intramurals, with Nita's team winning undefeated,
and Corn's team coming in second breathing down their necks! But the greatest joy
came during the interscholastic "battles."


J.C. won the championship undefeated! The first two games were walk-overs.
But in the last two, BHS and CHS put up a great fight. During the last seconds of the
game with the latter, J.C. made two thrilling points to tie the game and went on to win
22-19 in 5 extra minutes of play.

BASKETBALL


Because of the successful Volleyball season, the
girls eagerly awaited the start of the Basketball sea-
son. However, their spirits were dampened a bit
since intramurals began just as the finals for the first
semester did. So the girls lost a few games by forfeit.

Soon the exams were over, and the girls got back
into the swing of things. After intramurals the All-
Stars were chosen, and the girls were all raring and
ready to go at CHS and BHS.

BHS Downs JC with 13-7


Win In First Interscholastic Game.


Two second-quarter BHS touchdowns were enough to overcome an early JC lead.
A first-quarter JC drive had ended with Ray Oakley going over from the six yard line.
Don Alexander hit Bruce Spurlock with a pass for the extra point.

CHS--0, JC-0.

Rated as two touchdown underdogs, and after a miserable showing in the Jamboree,
a surprisingly strong JC team played Cristobal High School to a 0-0 deadlock. A JC
fumble on the CHS two yard line ended the only scoring threat of the game.

Junior College Upsets Powerful Athletic Club 7-0.

The JC team reached their peak in this game, as they completely outplayed and
upset the undefeated Athletic Club Rams, 7-0. The Rams were overpowered in 'every


department.


Great defensive play by Gene Burch, Burt Mead, John Feldt, and Gary


Alexander stopped AC time and time again. Offensively, Bill Gibson played an outstand-
ing game, as he ran for 111 yards in a little less than three quarters. Bill scored the only
JC touchdown in the third quarter, but in doing so he twisted his knee and had to leave
the game. Don Alexander ran for the extra point and JC had won their ballgame.
