the Cut-widening project is moved south through Miraflores Locks to be dumped

The following was taken from Ted Scott's "Interesting if True" which
appears in the Panam American. ED.
This year the Glorious Fourth has super-special significance to one
well-known local American family, that of Mr. and Mrs. Victor H. May.
On this occasion, they will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.
I remember Victor May from a way back. I remember him from my
days as correspondent of "The Panama American" on the Atlantic Side in
the early thirties, and I recall that he retired in 1940 when he was lock-
master at Gatun.

Victor May was born in Kenton, Ohio, 84 years ago, and came with
his wife, Sarah Matilda (of Galion, Ohio) to the Panama Canal in 1916.
They have four children: Henry Edward May of Tampa, Florida,
who was superintendent of the storehouse when he retired; Mrs. Delilah
Park of St. Petersburg, Florida; Mrs. Clara Chambers, who is a member
of the Port Captain's staff in Cristobal, and Victor H. May, Jr., who is
with Marine Traffic Control.
Mr. and Mrs. Victor H. May, Sr., live with Victor, Jr., in Margarita,
and are having a marvelous time. They play bingo, take part in other com-
munity activities, and enjoy life to the full.
On July 4 there will be an intimate family party in celebration of the
patriotic occasion, and also the May's 60th wedding anniversary, at the
Elks at Margarita.
I think it is not improper for me to state that I heard about this happy
event through a grandson, Henry Edward May, Jr., whom I am giving
occasional instruction in the gentle art of dudo (as distinct from judo at
which I understand he is a master).
A happy Fourth of July to all Americans everywhere, but particularly
to Mr. and Mrs. Victor H. May on their sixtieth wedding anniversary.

Nelson (Duke) Clark, Supervisory Marine Traffic Controller, retired
on June 30th after more than 21 years service. He and Bobby, a Navy
employee at Coco Solo for many years and, for the past year of Boyd
Bros. Steamship Agencies in Cristobal are spending August and September
with their parents and families in LaGrangeville and Croton-on-Hudson,
New York. They have no immediate plans as to where they will settle.

Mr. Badders, who served with the U.S. Navy for many years, retired
in September from the Panama Canal, where he has been employed since
1942 as Salvage M. ster and Master Diver in the Industrial Division.
As a Medal of Honor holder, Mr. Badders and his wife were guests
recently at a Military Reception at the White House.
The President took time to shake the hand of each of the men who
hold the highest award their country can give. Later, Mr. and Mrs. Bad-
ders had a long talk with Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, wife of the U.S. Attorney
General. Mrs. Badders described both the President and his sister-in-law
as people of great personal charm.
Another big thrill during the busy week in Washington was a reunion
with Vice Admiral O. F. Naquin, Ret., who was commanding officer of

the Submarine Squalus when it sank off Portsmouth in 1939. Mr. Badders
received the Medal of Honor for his work in the salvage and rescue work
on this submarine.
He was interviewed for television news programs several times and
as a result was called by friends from as far away as California. Mr. Bad-
ders said, however, that he never did manage to see one of the telecasts
on which he appeared.

Miss Virginia Perra, daughter of Police Captain and Mrs. Fred E.
Perra of Diablo Heights, was among seven new Honor Court members for

of college life.

Eugene and his wife Faye from Margarita, Canal Zone, were overnight

Mrs. Wally Ishay of Panama City, R. de P. The Ishays later went to

Roger Hackett, daughter Martha Lee Hackett Walsh and two children in

Florida; Staff Nurse, Coco Solo Hospital on the Atlantic Side of the
Canal Zone was retired. (Medical Disability). "Dixie" was a Pan-Canal
Nurse on the Atlantic Side for almost 19 years. Fully recovered from her
disability, in April, 1962, she was employed as a Staff Nurse at Duke
University Medical Center Hospital in Durham, North Carolina. She con-
tinued at Duke University Hospital as a Staff Nurse until she was re-
instated by the United States Civil Service Commission.
March, 1963, Miss Ewing joined the Nursing Staff of the U.S. Public
Health Service Hospital in New Orleans, La. as a U.S. Civil Service em-
ployee. She resides in the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital Nurses
Quarters on the Station in New Orleans, La.

"This Is Your Life, Marguerite Maphis," was presented as a highlight
at a retirement luncheon party given in honor of Mrs. Maphis of the Per-

sonnel Bureau on her birthday, who retired May 31 after more than 19
years service.
In 1927 she went to the Canal Zone with her husband, Sam W.
Maphis, a customs official there. She was a substitute teacher in the Canal
Zone schools and for a time was a reporter for the Panama American.
On leaving the Canal Zone she will visit her daughter, Conway, and

Capt. Ernest B. Rainier, who has been Port Captain in Cristobal on
a temporary basis since December 1962, became the Panama Canal's first

the eldest, now Mrs. Gertrude Fowler, in Empire, and the next oldest, Mrs.
Helen Fenn, in Colon Hospital, but they were little more than infants
when the family returned to the States, and so there are practically no
recollections of their life there.

Mrs. Windes was especially anxious to show her daughters a construc-
tion day house and with the help of Mrs. Amy McCormack whose prime
interest is Construction Day history, visited the two remaining early type
family quarters still in use, located on Columbia Road in Ancon. They
were also able to see the building that faced their Empire quarters and
housed the Y.M.C.A. for it is now the Balboa Clubhouse.
After two years in Empire, the Windes moved to Gatun where Mr.
Windes became cost accountant for the Atlantic Sector. Then in 1913,
when the end was in sight, Mr. Windes, as did many others, decided to
return to the States, and get established before too many employees had
the same idea, and so the family left and settled in Long Branch, Califor-
nia, where he opened his own office.

May 31. Our doorway was brightened by our vice-president and his
Chief of Staff, Ernest and Edith Keiswetter. We received the latest news
from all our friends in St. Pete., and surrounding territory. They couldn't
stay for dinner so-o-o we have large lobsters that are dieing of old age.

History. It appears that a person's reputation as a carnival con-man
sometimes comes home to roost. In other words they didn't believe me.
Am. Legion carnival queen contest for Virginia Winquist (now Seiler) in
1921. Pay 10 cents to see a mermaid. Crowds flocked in and gladly paid,
yet knowing it was a fake. Bill Boggs had charge of this one. Elk's car-
nival the smallest picture ever made of George Washington a 2-cent
postage stamp. Am. Legion carnival, 1922. Come and see a horse's head
where the tail ought to be a horse turned around in a stall. These "ex-
hibits" made a lot of money for the organizations, and those "taken in"
insisted that their friends join the happy group of "one born every minute".

HOWEVER, at the last carnival I tried to exhibit a live four-legged
rooster. It was absolutely authentic, and positively not a fake at all, at all.
All the ballyhoo possible didn't bring in any curious customers. So-o-o
the rooster died of starvation.
Our chapter membership now is 95.
A thought. How to keep a wedding ring fresh. Place it in dish-
water three times a day.
Lovingly submitted,
Ida and Slim Hallett

Mrs. Edith K. Wicks who is with the hospital in the Pa. State School
in Polk, Pa. sent me an article to peruse. The article she sent appeared
in "Grit" June 16, '63 Family Section, and is entitled, "The Luckiest
Business in the World" "Family clover farm grosses 4-leafers by Mil-
lions" is another caption 'tis all about the hobby started by our ex-
C.Z. friend, Chas. T. Daniels, who was with the Telephone Div. of the
El. Division, way back in '38 or earlier when he started the clovers on
Bal-Hts in his back yard. It is now carried on mostly by his son, Bill and
family, and daughter Marion Warwick who appear together in a large
picture on the page "in the clover", another larger photo shown
entitled, "On Visit to Clover Farm", Leona Sanders admires 4-leafers
growing in rows of trays." Mr. Chas. Sr. comes down to survey the 'farm'
quite frequently. The article recounts the various steps taken, and adjust-
ments made, and adversaries met, in establishing a greater growth to the
business, adding a factory or plant to manufacture articles containing
the precious clovers, selling and advertising, making key rings, etc. Orders
for a million clovers would keep the family extra busy, a daily gather-
ing of 12,000 leaves is usual. The newly expanded clover farm is now
called the "Daniel Clover Specialty Co." and is located at Gulfport, Fla.
We quote the authors Alpha LaForce and Edythe Alberty-as they quote
Bill Daniels,'"Work hard enough for what you want, think straight, have
faith, and good'lick:will come to you," said Bill who should know what
he's talking about. And may we add that we are proud of our Ex-CZ
friends, and their accomplishments.

Summer Time is Picnic Time! And a Parlor Picnic is what 33 mem-
bers and visitors of present and past Panama Canal employees had on June
9th at our local Community Adult Center. It's "Hats Off" to those who
braved the heat and three hour ride from Mt. Home to be present. Our
sympathy to those who, because of illness, could not be present. To those
who were away on vacation, we missed you and to those who were not
present for other reasons, you missed a feast of food and fellowship.

The Washington, D.C. Society held their annual luncheon meeting at
the Officers' Club, National Navy Medical Center, Bethesda, Md. on May
22, 1963. Mr. George Colburg, the Presidnt, presided, introducing the
toast master, Col. George S. Brady, USAR retired. Governor Maurice H.
Thatcher, the last living member of the ICC was the honored guest, who
showed sound pictures of dedication of the Thatcher Ferry bridge in Pan-
ama, R. de P. Mr. Walter G. Ross, District QM, Empire, C.Z. (1907-1914),
contributed a comprehensive report on the most important accomplish-
ments of Gov. Thatcher, entitled, "While yet we live Let's honor those
yet living". Excerpts follow.

"Governor Maurice Thatcher was later a member of Congress for
five terms (1923-33). He did not forget the Canal, the Old Timers and
the Isthmus. His Isthmian experiences fitted him to know at first hand the
needs of the Canal and its builders, operators and defenders. He was the
author and obtained the enactment of; the million dollar bill to establish
the Thatcher Ferry across the Canal; Gorgas Memorial Laboratory in
Panama; the construction of the connecting road across the West Zone
strip. He has drafted and substantially aided in bringing about the en-
actment of the legislation for annuities for the construction workers, U.S.
civilians of the Canal, and many other worth while acts."

Reports of intensified seismic activity from areas near Boquete in
Chiriqui Province, Republic of Panama, have caused some concern by
Chiriqui Province residents.
Geologists from Panama have consulted with Panama Canal Chief
Hydrographer W. H. Esslinger and are now investigating reports of ther-
mal springs, subterranean detonations, and seismic movements.
The seismograph at Balboa Heights recorded a seismic movement of
"fair" intensity in the Boquete region.

Swimmer Albert H. Ashiver transited from Gatun Locks to Gamboa.
The 42-year-old Washington, D.C. oceanographer was listed for 5-feet-5-
inch length, 1-foot 3-in beam, 1-foot depth and displacement of approxi-
mately one-tenth of a ton. Toll was 45 cents, smallest ever collected by
the Canal, on a minimum 1 net ton charge, with half of the 90-cent fee
rebated because he didn't go through any locks.

Someday soon a woman's sweet soprano voice may answer the Canal
Zone police patrolman who reports into the station by radio, and the
driver who goes to the Civil Affairs Building to take a license test may
be taken through his paces by a female.
These positions traditionally held by Canal Zone policemen, are
now being advertised on the Personnel Bureau in-service employee trans-
fer vacancy bulletin.

Any morning at the crack of dawn, early birds, worms and others in
the vicinity of Gaillard Cut are likely to find the Panama Canal motor
launch Shad making a patrol of this narrow part of the Canal.
Festooned with red lights and decked with red flags, the Shad moves
up the channel like a bloodhound following a trail. It sniffs cautiously
along the channel centerline at about 8 knots, and in sections where
dredges have been at work during the night, the launch circles back, crosses
the centerline, checks any questionable area of the channel and moves on.
The daily patrol now is conducted with a launch fitted with three
transducers or sonar devices, called "fish"', which extend 2 feet below
the water surface and send electronic signals on depth of the channel back
to three recorders installed inside the launch. Each recorder is operated
by a techician who watches it closely. Any lumps rising above the safe
depth of 42 feet below the surface are reported immediately to the Dredg-
ing Division.

There's a general exodus of balanced wildlife from the area of the
Bas Obispo-Las Cascadas Reach Canal widening project.
Among those fleeing as earth moving equipment works south are some
"Communists." These are the Greater Ani, birds of a dozen or so per
flock which builds a communal nest on the ground, take turns using it,
sit simultaneously on eggs laid in it, and apparently share parenthood of
all results of hatching.
And on numerous occasions they appear to have noisy and un-
necessary conferences and disturb the natural serenity of their surround-
ings, reports project engineer Charles McG. Brandl, amateur naturalist
and aspiring ornithological photographer.
Wary and timid, the Greater Ani are rare in and near populated areas,
but fairly common in more remote regions.
The better known Lesser Ani often follow mowers, gleaning for the
insects put to flight.
Also found in the project area have been the mot-mots, pretty birds
with iridescent pastel coloring. They have a distinctive call and respond
to calls by bird fanciers, coming to them. They have a peculiar tail con-
struction and the effort of making their call causes their tails to flop for-
ward as they sound off.
Twelve Cuna Indians, six of them albinos, from the San Bias Islands
arrived in Balboa on the first leg of a two week trip to Milledgeville, Ga.
The all-male group, six serving as "controls" and the six 21 to 47 year-
old albinos, is heading for the Milledgeville State Hospital where a team
of doctors will conduct a series of temperament, behaviour and health
tests in the albinos and their brown-skinned counterparts.
Lead by Dr. Clyde Keeler, the 12 San Bias Indians are making their
first trip out of Panama and showed their excitement while taking the
"shots" given to tourists leaving Panama.
Not only doctors are going to see the Cunas. The 12 men have ar-
ranged a special program of dances and songs for the people of the United
The feature number is entitled, in Cuna tongue, "Merki Neka Toto
Kwitche" -Dancing Proudly Upright In America.
Keeler for many years interested in the unique albino population of
the San Blas Islands, is taking the Indians to the US on a study grant
from the National Institute of Health.
There are presently 144 albinos in the Cuna population of 23,000, a
figure arrived at by Dr. Keeler during a trip to the islands last year. In

the United States the incidence of albinism is one in ten thousand.
The albinos are called Moon Children by the rest of the tribe which
believes their white color occurred because the mother or father of each
albino looked at the moon too often during pregnancy.
Two of the albinos travelling with the group are suffering from vary-
ing degrees of skin cancer. Both of them will be operated on in the U.S.
hospitals before they are returned to the San Bias Islands.
The Rev. Peter Miller is accompanying the group to the States to
serve as interpreter. Rev. Miller, a Cuna missionary of the Baptist denom-
ination, has studied for 14 years in the U.S. and is currently translating
the bible into his native language.
One of the three medical researchers flown back to the Canal Zone
from Bolivia, apparently stricken by the disease they were helping to com-
bat, has been discharged from Gorgas Hospital.
The two others still are in the hospital but are recovering.
Dr. Ronald B. MacKenzie, an epidemiologist, is out of the hospital.
Still hospitalized are Dr. Karl Johnson and Angel Munoz, the latter a
Panamanian biological technician.
Munoz was evacuated to the Canal Zone on the same non-stop flight
aboard a US Air Force plane. Dr. Johnson followed them.
All three men belong to the research team of the Middle America Re-
search Unit (MARU) at Gorgas Hospital sent to the San Joaquin Valley
in Bolivia where over 600 Bolivians in the area have been affected by the
fever, with a 30 percent fatality rate, since it first became known in 1960.
Erroneously reported as "the black typhys of Beni," the fever is thought
by the MARU researchers to be a close relative to the Argentinian hem-
orrhagic fever.
The team, working with Bolivian doctors, succeeded only last month
in isolating the virus which causes the fever.
The three researchers came down with fever and the tentative diag-
nosis was hemorrhagic fever.
The rest of the team has remained in Bolivia, where MARU set up a
field laboratory for the research work.
MARU operates under the US National Institutes of Health and the
Walter Reed Institute of Research.

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be,
since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
