The past three months have been tremendous]
busy for the Executive Board. Besides trying t
take a little time out to enjoy the holidays, T,
were busy trying to find ways that the Panama Car
al Society of Florida could assist with the sitt
action in Panama. We started out by having a locu
food and clothing drive at our January 5th meet
ing. This was a tremendous success. We were abl
to completely fill a pick-up truck and loaded tl
rest into the trunk of my car. The items collects
were delivered to the Ayuda Panama people ar
transported to Panama. We then decided on sendir
a letter to all of you with the request that cor
tributions be made to a special account we wei
setting up in an effort to purchase items the
would be needed by Panama. Mr. Virgil "Skeetel
Caby agreed to chair this venture and has dor
a tremendous job. Contributions are continuing t
come in and we are excited about the projectE
final balance with which we will be able to put
chase these goods. A full accounting of this ver
ture will be placed in the June issue of the Canm
Record. I am truly humbled at the response to ot
letter. I have always said that we are a uniqt
organization. This is only further emphasized I
the response to our letter. Our members have oper
ed up their hearts and have truly shown that T,
are indeed a very unique group of people. On be
half of the Chairman, Mr. Camby, and the entii
Executive Board, thank you so much for your gene
osity and support of this project.

Additionally, pursuant to the request of a nun
ber of our members, we have looked into the ques
tion of why a family membership only has one vot
on the ballots that are printed in our book. Thi
is a question that has been brought up in the pas
and the solution that was presented at that tin
was rejected by the membership. Although an amenc
ment being presented in the past does not prohibi
a member from bringing it up again, I have review,
ed this with the By-Laws Committee and we are ur
able at this time to reach a solution that woul
be fair to ALL of our members. Therefore, th
voting process at this time will remain the same.
There are several items of interest in thi
issue that I would appreciate each of you takir
the time to peruse. First, there is a by-la
change to be considered. Please read this propose

as possible so that applications may be submitted
for the Reunion. At that time of year, however

employees retiring after December 22, 1989 will
receive their lunp sum payment in 2 installments,
one year apart, of 507/ each. Prior to this change,
the percentages were 60 and 40. The change was
brought about by 1989 budget reconciliation legis-
lation enacted by Congress last November. The lump
sum payment has been available to retiring federal
employees since June 6, 1986. It represents the
amount that the employee has contributed to the
Civil Service Retirement System during his/her
working years. IRS has determined that the lump
sum is taxable, and if withdrawn before age 55,
there is an additional 10% penalty. The lump sum
does not qualify for a tax free rollover as an IRA
or for income averaging. A lawsuit challenging the
taxation of the lump sum is in progress. All writ-
ten arguments in the case should be submitted by
mid-February 1990, which will have passed by the
time you read this article.

Marine Subcommittee recently approved H.R. 44
which would give veteran status to those who ser-
ved in the Merchant Marines from August 15, 1945
to December 31, 1946. Merchant Mariners who served
from December 7, 1941 to August 15, 1945 were al-
ready accorded veterans status by a Secretary of
the Air Force decision in 1988. Veteran status
means eligibility for service-related disability
compensation, pension, medical care, certain sur-
vivors' benefits, VA-guaranteed home loans and
burial benefits.
In 1986 legislation was enacted to give civil ser-
vice retirement credit for service in the Cadet
Nurse Corps during World War II. Unfortunately
those wmen who served in this Corps, who retired
before 1986, were ineligible, however there is a
strong lobbying by former Cadet Nurses to include
them in this legislation and anyone interested can

The By-Laws Committee believes that Mrs. Frass-

September 30 would be a distinct improvement

nend the adoption of this proposal for the fol-
ring reasons:
It is essential that the current roster of mem-
rs in good standing be completed by mid-December
that the Reunion Coordinator may verify a per-
n's eligibility to receive member rates at Re-
ion hotels at the following Reunion. Timeliness
this procedure is vital.

Reunion Coordinators

Please read the Reunion information in the yel-
low section of the Record. There have been some
changes and as our talented Annual Luncheon Chair-
lady, Betty Malone, says, we are acquainted with
Mr. Murphy.
The renovation of the Twin Towers convention
space is about 4 months behind schedule and there
will be some construction confusion, fortunately
not in the areas we will be using.
Actually the changes have made your Board of
Directors and Reunion Committee rethink and come
up with some innovative changes that we believe
will make the Reunion a lot more pleasurable.
Be sure and look at the schedule of events;
there have been some changes in the times for reg-
istration and vendors.
In particular, we are going to have buffet-
style meals with plenty of seating so that no one
has to wait on overworked table servers and the
kitchen. The food bars will be scattered through-
out the meeting areas with empanadas and other
good things to eat. The Twin Towers dining room
and coffee shop will not be open, the banquet
kitchen will.
Get your room reservations in early; the head-
quarters hotel, the Twin Towers, is almost full.
We have added two more overflow hotels so that we

Panamanian Deputy Administrator Fernando Ma-
fredo, Jr. has been asked by President Bush to
continue with the Commission beyond December 31,
1989. As the Coxnnission's senior executive, he
will, on an interim basis, become acting Adminis-
trator upon the retirement December 31 of D. P.
McAuliffe, outgoing U.S. Administrator.
Also on an interim basis effective January 1,
1990, the Office of the Administrator is being re-
structured to create two acting Deputy Administra-
tor positions to strengthen the support provided
to the acting Administrator one for operational
support, the other for administrative support.
The Commission's Board of Directors has appoin-
ted R. P. Laverty, present Director, Office of Ex-
ecutive Planning, to serve as acting Deputy Admin-
istrator-Operations, and Joseph J. Wood, present
Director, Office of Executive Administration, as
acting Deputy Administrator-Administration.
Further announcements are expected.
December 15, 1989


Praise and a genuine thank-you is extended to
Panama Canal Commission employees and dependents
who, during the height of the U.S. military action
in Panama, performed hundreds of good deeds at
both ends of the Canal in an effort to be helpful
or to see to the comfort of others. While we on
the Spillway staff have no way of knowing every
contribution that was made, we felt we should
share some of what we've learned.
Amateur radio operators worked around the clock
to make contact with families in the United States
who were worried and uncertain about local rela-
tives and friends. Several employees and family
members volunteered at hospitals, and the Canal
community contributed items of personal clothing
when Gorgas Hospital ran low on hospital gowns.
People prepared hundreds of holiday cookies and
meals for the U.S. soldiers and others. Many indi-
viduals made phone calls to the United States to
assure the families of the U.S. soldiers that
their loved ones were all right. Employees and
their families worked with Panamanian refugees,
comforting them and trying to meet their immediate
needs. Volunteers also collected and sorted mail


on both sides of the Isthmus; others filled in as
cashiers; and some even pumped gas.
In Panama City and Colon, as well as in other
areas, neighbors helped each other by providing
security against looters and members of the "Dig-
nity" Battalions. Residents also shared food, baby
formula and other essential items.
Two employees even risked their lives to per-
form a heroic humanitarian act. When a U.S.
soldier was seriously wounded in the Balboa
Heights area, Jack Shea and Tom m Lean disregarded
their own safety and took him while under fire
- in a private vehicle to Gorgas Army Hospital.
The Panama Canal Spillway
January 5, 1990



A new Panama Canal Commission dredge tender,
the Ganboa, arrived on the Isthmus on October 27.
The 102-foot-long, 32-foot-beam vessel navigated
under its own power to the Panama Canal from Lou-
isiana. where Houma Fabricators built it at cost

its sister vessel, the LChagres but with more
effectiveness. Like the Chagres, the new dredge
tender will be used to support dredging activi-
ties, move non self-propelled floating equipment
and provide dredges, the drill boat, and cranes
with fuel, potable water and supplies. The Ganbca
includes a more sophisticated foam firefighting
system comprised of 2,500 gallons of foam, a 1,500
gallons-per-minute pump and a fire monitor. It al-
so has an auxiliary crane, a new fendering system,
a rudder and propeller guard, a different sewage
treatment plant, a chilled-water air conditioning
system and larger generators and wheelhouse.
The Garnoa 's characteristics and dimensions
conform specifically to the needs of the Dredging
Division. Marine Engineer David Bishop, who exam-
ined the equipment during its fabrication and ini-
tial testing in Lousiana, says the Dredging Divi-
sion is very pleased with the new acquisition. He
idds, "Houma Fabricators has done a great job."
The contracting firm from Louisiana is current-
ly working on two new towboats the Unidad and
-he Victoria for Canal Services Division, as well
is a fuel barge and a submergeable pipeline barge.

Can any of you believe it is 1990 and all the
nazing news from Panama at the turn of the dec-
le? We had a letter from classmate Lionel
Wudy" Stenpel and his wife, Anita, written before
ie U.S. invasion, telling of ever more miserable
)ression in Panama under the iron fist of the
)riega regime and asking for prayers for all of
iem still in Panama and for the "nightmare" to
ne to an end soon. How grateful they must be for
ie developments so soon after that. Other than
idy's being sent by the Catholic Church in Panama

Birthdays are such a memorable occasion, just
like having your own personal holiday!!! How did
I spend my birthday, you asked. Well let me tell.
My wife Monica had planned to spend the holidays
with her parents down in Panama City, Panama. With
tickets on hand and with bags packed, we made a
phone call of Dec. 20 at 11:15 P.M. and not a min-
ute after we had hung up...C.N.N. reporting "OP-
ERATION JUST CAUSE" was taking place. The chips
were down and all bets were made!!! We cancelled
the trip and waited. On January 3, 1990, day of
my birthday, I got a remote control plane from
Monica and while celebrating my birthday in the
company of a few good friends and my Uncle Vie
Enyart, who flew in from Huntington Beach, Ca.,
C.N.N. reports the "GENERAL SURRENDERS." What a
great present that was. Remembering the words of
the Late Martin Luther King, I said to myself,
"free at last, free at last, thank God we are free
at last."
Speaking about Vic Enyart, he is just about
ready for retirement with Southern Edison Power
Co. of California. He spends his spare time build-
ing hot rods and pushing them to the limit for
optimum speed. In fact, he has managed to build
a hot coupe and runs it at the salt flats out in
the Mohavi Desert. He has done so well that even
the Japanese have come up and shown interest in
the concept. Good job, Vic, keep on trucking!!!!!
Just recently I heard from Rebecca (TxIpson)
Sorsen now living here in Pensacola since '88. Re-
becca is fifth generation Zonian (hard to find)
and graduated from BHS'72. She left Panama in '75
but says she's always a Zonian. Her sister Jaye
(Tonpson) Barrett, class of BHS'64, is also here
in the area along with her mother Mary (Rilly)

Libby tells me that the only thing that Aldon has
caught is a winter cold!! Libby managed to squeeze
a holiday trip to Maryland to visit with friends
and relatives.
Jo (Marti) Roebuck recently moved to a new home
they just purchased and has been kept busy paint-
ing, scraping and constantly fixing something but
she has also found time to do a couple recitals
during the holidays. Jo plays the organ and she
is pretty good at it I hear.
(harlene and Ralph James are doing fine and
would you believe they have taken up "circle dan-
cing." What in the heck is circle dancing? I hope
they don't get too dizzy! Ralph is taking up golf-
ing and just the other day he shot a hole in 52
strokes for an average of 275 on a 9 hole par. You
better give up, Ralph, you are supposed to score
low!!! Charlene was here in Pensacola for a visit
with her mother who has not been feeling too well
lately. For all of you who are going down Char-
lene's way during the Reunion, she says to give
her a call and to stop on by since she is in the
Lady Lakes area. Her phone number if (904) 753-
In closing, I'd like to thank the few of you
in my area who take the time to support this re-
porter in keeping the Canal Record alive. Till the
next time, good day!

Over the past year, several people have expres-
sed an interest in a local, South Florida, get to-
gether. After speaking with Lou Seldon, formally
of Los Rios, we decided that it was time to get
the ball rolling. First, we need to see how many
people are interested and most importantly, find
volunteers to plan this event. We could have a
picnic in a centrally located park, perhaps in
April or May. So, if you are interested, please
write or call either myself or Lou. It would be
best to just drop either one of us a short note
giving us your ideas and address with phone num.-
ber. This way if flyers are sent out, your address
will be readily available. We will need scmreone
to chair this event; also, contact other people
ho you know might be interested.

Greetings from the Florida Keys where it's al-
ways sunny and everything is beautiful! The fish-
ing has been great and as usual it's usually pret-
ty sunny. The Keys are groaning under the influx
of snowbirds and their mobile homes, but such is
life. As for Zonian happenings, things have been
pretty quiet lately. Patrick and Myra Grimison are
still alive and kicking in Key West from what I
hear. Unfortunately, I've been unable to hook up
with them recently. Bruce and Anna Barca paid me
a visit over the Christmas Holidays. Of course a
mandatory visit to Sloppy Joes and Margaritaville
were called for and a good time was had by all (as
evidenced by the amount of Tylenol consumed the
next morning). David Payne, formerly of Balboa,
called recently. He's now an ATF agent in Tanpa
and our line of work keeps us in touch occasional-
ly. All is going well with him. Rob Valentine,
formerly of the Atlantic side, is also doing well
in Key West.
I recently talked with Monty Seals, formerly
one of C.Z.'s finest and later Marathon, in the
Keys. He is now in Georgia with his family in an
instructing position and doing well. I could fill
a book with fish stories from the infamous Monty
Seals!!! Congratulations are in order for David

Kelleher; he now has a beautiful baby girl as well
as recently passing his second class examination
in the Naval Reserves about time Dave!!!
As for the news from Panama all in all, a
hairy situation. My parents, Ernest and Jeannie
Hickman had a close call with looters around their
house, but Uncle Sam came to the rescue. They are
now doing fine. All seems to be quieting down now
and only the rebuilding remains. Condolences to
the Dragseth family for both their losses.
That's it from paradise. Anyone coming my way,
give a shout and I'll try and hook up with you-
ill. Buenas suerte.

numerous stops en route, Nessina, Sorrento, Pala
de Mallorca, Cartagen, Gibraltar, Casablance, Ten-
erife, through the Antilles, and a first visit in
Martinique. Their biggest event of the year was
the arrival of another grandchild last February,
David Alexander Hatch, Whitney's baby brother.
Dorothy and Ira Brandi had a very busy year.
Dr. Ira Brandt retired from Indiana University's
Medical School faculty, and Dorothy retired from
the Embroiderers' Guild's National Board of Di-
rectors. They then sold their home in Indianapolis
and moved to the Santa Clara Valley in California,
the citrus and avocado area. Their home is now in
Santa Paula and they are getting resettled. Both
are becoming acquainted in the community, studying
Spanish and trying to be computer literate. Their
children, Elizabeth Thmas and family reside in
Victorville; Laura Nmrray and her family recently
returned to their home in Cambridge, U.K. from
Serengeti where they had been for several years;
Bill working and living in Tempe, Ariz.; Rena
Spurlin and family in Speedway, Indiana. In Febru-
ary Dorothy and Ira are looking forward to a fam-
ily reunion, including all five grandchildren.
Vera and Alton Jones have leased their condo
and moved into a split-level home they share with
their son Harry and his wife Lynn, near the Indian
Rocks Bridge. The "latch-string" hangs loose and
visitors are welcome.
Tom and Marilyn Marsh did a lot of traveling
last year. They drove to Concord, Ca. to visit
daughter Ede and to pick up their granddaughter
Heidi for a trip to Disneyland. On to Ontario to
visit Tom's sister; then back to Oregon to pack
and fly to Florida for the reunion. Bill Turner
met them at the airport and they spent a couple
of days visiting pre-reunion. They had a wonderful
time at the reunion renewing old acquaintances
from Zone days. Marilyn's sister Marjean and hus-
band met them at the reunion and afterwards. They
visited Epcot before returning to Oregon. In Aug-
ust they attended the NW Reunion in Eugene, on to
daughter Billie and Lester's cabin near Bend, Or.
From there to Gold Beach to meet Ede, and south
to see the Giant Redwoods. In October they flew
to Minneapolis for a week, visiting family,
friends and especially Mrs. Metzgar, Marilyn's
mother, who at 96 years is quite frail.
Doris and Neilson Etchberger had a busy year.


Latimer, Mary Latimer, Bob and Margaret "Teddy"
Morrison, Bill and Doris Etchberger, John Dillon,
Richard and Carolyn Dillon, Bob Herrington, Fred
Huldtquist, Yvone Mmnsil, Arthur and Bergueline
Coe, Betty Snow;, nephews Howard and Jackie Pauld-
ing went to Australia for a business trip, and
Richard Paulding who survived the Bay-Quake safe
with no damages. Bud and Beverly (Chan) Williams
flew to Panama to visit son Pat and his family.
Claude and Mary (Plummer) Thomson last Febru-
ary, Mary flew to Alaska to see her new grandson.
In August, she flew to Florida to be with her
Mother before she died August 24, 1989. She is
missed by her family. In October, Mary and Clau-
de's son and his family (Alaska) visited them in
Winston, Wa.
Herb and Jackie Raybourn's daughter Elaine is
living and working in Guam, while their son Herbie
graduated from college and will return to work on
his Masters Degree in Engineering. Herb is the
Latin American baseball scouting director for the
New York Yankees.
Ed and Marcy Napoleon Ed will be a coach for
Houston Astros again this coming year. Their eld-
est son, Eddie, will return to the University of
Florida to work on his Masters Degree in Anthro-
pology in June. Its too early to plan for the sum-
mer activities, so will wait and see.
For those who like to plan ahead of time, and
would like to join us for our annual NW Picnic Re-
union in 1990, here's the information you've been
waiting to put on your calendars: first Saturday
in August which is August 4, 1990 at Bruceport
County Park, located south of South Bend, Wa. on
US 101 Highway. For further information, send a
stamped, self-addressed envelope to our hosts, Al
and Anne Richardson, P.O. Box 206, Naselle, Wa.
98638. Hope to see you all there in August 1990.
I received a very interesting letter from Car-
olyn Dillon relating life on the Zone prior to,
during and after the invasion. It was a very frus-
trating way of life with all the harassment that
was taking place for so long before the US inter-
vention. She writes that she, Richard and son Bob
baked many many dozens of cookies and then bagged
them. The next morning, December 25, Richard and
Bob took the bagged cookies, cold sodas and ice,
and gave them to the kids on guard and running pa-
trols on the highways between Diablo and Ft. Clay-
ton. When she's referring to the GI's as "kids,"
she's noting "that many are not as old as my
kids!" She continued with, "they were so glad to
get the ice. Most of the kids came down from zero-
degree weather to Panama's pea soup-thick humid-
Carolyn wrote that her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth
Rowley, 81 years old, died November 5, in Alabama.
Richard's 7th grade English teacher on the Zone
many years ago and residing in Scottsboro, Ala-
bama, Hazel Matthews, also died recently.

From your Northwest reporter, I am planning and
looking forward to being present in Dothan, Alaba-
ma for the BHS 50th Reunion. God willing, I'm gon-
na make it!

In November Mary V. Graham attended the 45th
anniversary of graduation of her class at Tulane
University School of Medicine in New Orleans. It
was a three-day event which allowed the 75 attend-
ees to exchange gossip and renew friendships.
While in New Orleans, Doctor Graham spent an af-
ternoon with Virginia ("Ding") Stich, former Li-
brarian of Gorgas Hospital Medical Library. Ding
has completed and is almost ready to publish a
complete history of Gorgas Hospital and the medi-
cal service in the Canal Zone from early construc-
tion days.
The first week of December Jean, Doris, Scott
and Laura Burns enjoyed a week in Puerta Vallarta,
Mexico. Cathy and Eddie Goodrich, Apollo Beach,
Florida; Elaine and Bob Donaldson, Rockland,
Maine; Debbie and Frank Lee, Dunnellon, Florida;
and Gloria and Ed Malin, Jacksonville, Florida al-
so made the trip. The twelve spent seven days at
the Jack Tar Village Resort, toured Puerto Vallar-
ta and participated in all of the activities of
the Resort. A fun time was had by all.
The Christmas season was a time for many ex-
Zonians to get together and celebrate. Ron and
Alice Jacobs flew to Vermont to visit Captain An-
drew Tomlet. They were joined by the George Cole-
mans of Florida, the Snells and the Calkins, all
of whom had served as Captains on the Canal. This
get together was topped off by a real sleigh ride
complete with horse and sleigh bells. Ron says
"Jingle Bells" will never sound the same. It's
nice to know Alice is doing so well following her
renal transplant.
The Butz family gathered at Bill and Esther
(Butz) Clair's home for Christmas. Harry and Len-
ore, Esther's parents, came from Springdale, Ar-
kansas and Esther's brother, Peter Butz, and his
family came from Sapulpa where they have recently
moved into the new home which Peter built.
Jane (Mrs. Kenneth) Vinton now lives at St.
Simeon's Retirement Home in Tulsa. Her two daugh-
ters, Kayleen Vinton and Janeth Cannon also live
in Tulsa. Janeth graduated from Balboa High School
in 1956 and through the years has remained in con-
tact with 12 of her classmates by a round-robin
letter which circulates among them. They are wide-
ly scattered and during the December turmoil in
Pan-,m Janeth saw one of them. Bobbv Eismann. or

in Panama City. Janeth and her husband will be
leaving in late January for a two week stay in

Darrow Cronin Reinmuth, Mary V. Graham,
Eunice Richards and Marjorie Woodruff at
Darrow's wedding in Dallas. Four friends
from the Canal Zone.

Jimnie Wickham spent her Christmas vacation in
Panama. She arrived a few hours before the U.S.
Armed Forces did and spent time with friends in
La Boca near the bridge, which was closed by the
U.S. Army. Despite all the excitement, she saw old
friends and had an "interesting" time. It isn't
everyone who gets air evac'd out via the Army be-
cause there are no commercial flights on December
30th and she was due back at her teaching position
in McAlester. Jinmie says it was amazing how
quickly Canal employees resumed their duties after
the invasion.
Jean and Doris Burns drove to Clarksville, Ar-
kansas during January, spending the night with
Marge and Doc Scarborough. The four of them then
drove to West Memphis, Arkansas and spent the
weekend with Berqueline and Art Goe. Jerry and Bea
Williams from Harrison, Arkansas drove down to
West Menphis to the Goe's. The Goe's son Frank and
daughter Judy live in West Menphis. Judy took Mar-
ge and Doris on a tour of Menphis to Elvis Pres-
ley's Graceland home and the Hotel Peabody. Art,
Jerry, Doc and Jean worked together on the Shrine
Kitchen Crew in Panama. It was a nice reunion for
Mary V. Graham, M.D.

For this report I can hardly say "Nothing new

told for months and years to come, I'm sure. On

To Remember!
Reserve your tickets for a full day of SeaWorld fun.
No Florida vacation is complete without a visit to
Sea World. It's the only place you can come face-
to-face with mean and monstrous sharks. Shake hands
-or flippers-with the stars of our shows.
You'll also see our "miracle babies"--Baby Shamu and
Baby Namu--as they perform and play together in
their 6-million gallon nursery.
So be sure to set aside a day to visit Sea World when
planning your visit to Central Florida this June. Reserve .,

traveling companion, Myrtle, a thoroughbred "J
street hound, I joined Steve in Yuba City, north
ern California, in the Sacramento Valley, goirq
over the Donner Pass in ll
the first blizzard of .
1988! We learned, to our .
delight, that California
is not all just freeways
and surfing. The Sacra-
mento Valley is a beauti-
ful agricultural area,
but its biggest boon is
being a great jumping-off
place. In a couple of
hours we could go east up
into the Sierras, Lake
Tahoe, Reno and such, or
south to the Wine Country
the Delta, and San Fran- *
cisco. We were in San

der in Oregon, and the lumber country of Eureka
where Tita (Marta Tanner CHS'81) and Gary (Maso

In July 1989, Tita and Gary visited us in Y.C

Dear Sir:
I am writing you to ask the Canal Record an
members of the Panama Canal Society for your as.
distance in my search. The following is my quest.
I have been searching for 9 years to locate
anyone who was assigned to the Panama Air Depot
anyone attached to Albrook AFB and Paitilla air-
port from 1942 to 1945 and later.
My reason is that I am searching for a one-of-
a kind airplane that was assigned to the USAA]
during WWII and was designated as the UC-92. Ii
was a Funk Airplane manufactured by Funk Aircrafi
at Coffeyville, KS., in 1942. I am in search oi
anyone who might have taken a photograph of thi
aircraft in military dress while in the service o:
our country. If a photograph is located, I wil
make a copy and send it to Maxwell AFB, USAF His-
torical Museum archives and I will retain a cop1
for our association files (Funk Aircraft Owner!
In addition, after being sold as surplus ii
1945, the aircraft was registered as RX-33, Pana-
manian registry, and used at Paitilla Airport as
a personal aircraft and student trainer. I am als(
searching for anyone, or leads, who may know what
happened to this aircraft, and who may know wherE
it is today, or the last known owner or disposi-
I have been in contact with former FBO person-
nel in Panama, and our FAA, and a David A. Lewis
who was employed at PAD, but have not had any suc-
cess to date.
Any and all leads who may have knowledge ol
this aircraft would be appreciated. One Lt. Sawyei
a USAAF pilot was located who flew this aircraft
during WWII and supplied his flight log, but has

no photographs of the aircraft in military dress.
This is a last ditch effort to locate photo-
graphs and disposition of this aircraft. It is
hoped that the Panama Canal Society may have sonx
members who may have been interested in aviation
and may provide answers to my quest.

who loved and lived her life without pretense.

With my oppressed and bleeding heart and in my
absence; memories of my dear country come to me.
All I can see is ruins and destruction, a zoo of
wild animals, the smell of blood, the hunger, the
pain. In the name of God I pray for miracles; for
Him there are no impossible and with Him we will
conquer the Dragon (Manuel Antonio Noriega). My
dear country, where I saw the first light of my
existence, even tho I am so far from you, I suffer
and cry for your sorrow; my heart bleeds for you
day and night. One day I know there will be calm-
ness and the rainbow of peace will shine again; it
will cover the villages, the seas, the palm trees.
On that day I will go back to my country for a
visit; I will kneel and kiss the soil with rever-
ence and love; and I know I will hear again the
tamborines playing the hymn of peace.

We had a very eventful Christmas this year. Mom
and dad arrived in Houston on December 22 to icy
roads ansd snow. On December 23, the temperatures
were down to 9 Our pipes froze and broke in
several places. Half of Houston was without water.
We were lucky because, although we didn't have
water, my brother Guy lives only 5 minutes away
and he had water, so we spent a lot of time there.
While mom and dad were here we all went to see the
Houston Oilers get beat.

back to Florida. Probably to enioy a Rood nights

We have two young sons, Evan (4) and Ethan (2)

Although Gary is a Michigan native and love,

The late Ted Scott's (see With Deep Sorrow)
INREADY," with its familiar Don Quixote de la Man-
.ha mounted on his aged horse, Rocinante, lancing
it a windmill, was extremely popular among its
readers. Its social and political content covered
aspects of local daily life and people, as well as
opics of international importance. Ted was an
interestingg and flamboyant character, as were the
any people he met casually or interviewed profes-
;ionally and wrote about, to include: (Carles
,indberg on his historic airmail flight to Panama;
ir Winston Churchill, who had him thrown off a
rain in New York; President Franklin D Roosevelt;
'resident Jose "Pepe" Figueres of Costa Rica;

,ne next -) years. uuruig wwIi Lol InL&ai-, ni,
ias deported from Panama by President Arnulfo
trias and its pro-Nazi government, where upon Ted
worked throughout North and Central America for
BSC (British Security Coordination) collaborating
rith the OSS (U.S. Office of Strategic Services).
lis position as Vice-President of TACA, the Hondu-
rian airline, owned by fellow New Zealander, Low-
All Yerex, served as his cover. During this en-
leavor, he met and worked with Sir William Steph-
nson (better known by his code-name INTREPID), to
establish Camp X on Lake Ontario, opposite Roches-
:er, New York, where Brits and Americans collabor-
ited, recruited and trained for covert operations
iimed at defeating the Nazi movement in Europe.
Their friendship endured until Sir William's death
nd it is regretable that neither lived another
rear to see the destruction of the Berlin Wall,
and the overwhelming demonstrations against poli-
:ical opression around the world.
When the war ended, Ted returned to Panama and
resumed writing for the PANAMA AMERICAN for a
short time before establishing residence in Hava-

na, utua, were ne continued to write nis iNifK-
ESTING IF TRUE column for the daily English news-
paper there, THE HAVANA POST. In 1959, Ted was
arrested by Fidel Castro for counter-revolutionary
activity, and released rather than executed, for
in fact, he had continued to perform ad hoc in-
telligence assignments in Cuba for the U.S. and
British governments. He said, "it was due to the
persistence of the British ambassador, who kept a
noisy vigil at my cell door until he succeeded in
assurring my release and safe departure by plane
to New York, or I wouldn't have survived to tell
you about it." Having had a long association with
NBC News from the early 1950's as a stringer, Ted
now pursued this aspect of his career full-time.
He roamed Latin America and the Caribbean before
returning to Panama once again in 1962. He wrote
his column for two more years for the interest and
benefit of its English-speaking readership, mainly
those Zonians who dedicated their careers to the
successful operation of the Panama Canal. Ted left
Panama for the last time in January 1964 during
the heat of the anti-American flag-burning demon-
strations, having been declared 'persona non
grata' for an expressed pro-U.S. position.
Two days immediately prior to the outbreak of
the Six Days War, Ted was assigned to Cairo, Egypt
where he stayed representing NBC and making daily,
on-the-spot newscasts for six years! Being a New
Zealander, he was allowed to remain in Cairo years
after Americans had become unwelcome, indeed when
many of his journalistic colleagues had been in-
terned in Egypt.
After retiring to Cocoa Beach in 1973, Ted
spent much of his time fishing with a cast net and
teaching anyone willing to learn his favorite
sport (particularly his grandchildren and their
friends), and kept in touch with his former news
colleagues. Although he spent his last years
living in the U.S. and most of his life supporting
pro-american sentiment around the world, he was
always at heart "a blown away Kiwi!"
NOTE: My dad was not known to have a 'low profile'
and I'm sure many of the readers of the Canal Rec-
ord have stories pertaining to a particular inci-
dent or long-association with him that we haven't
heard, or if we have, would enjoy hearing about
them again. I would appreciate it very much if you
would take the time to share them with me. Please
