. The Balboa Rollerdrome was opened to give our children
a wholesome form ot recreation.
But best of all, rollerskating Is one activity In which all
members of a family can participate. The parents can make
the Rink the kind of place they would like their children to
Skating is not only fun for those who skate but anyone
. can enjoy watching the skaters from a spectator's section free
Servicemen do skate at the rink but there should be no
objection to this since their behavior is above reproach.
, Sooner or later all boys are Servicemen through no fault
of .their own. Most of these boys would be in college if they
had not been called Into service. A uniform does not change
Let's make the Rollerdrome a success, and maybe the need
jfor additional recreational facilities will be recognized.

Dear Interested Mother Number Two:
I've been reading the Mall Box for quite some time now,
and I aorta set peeved now and then, but you really should
have aniOscar for your attempt to show Interest In the welfare
nd happiness of others. Now Isn't It terrible that some moth mother's
er's mother's lonely son (a serviceman) away from home (and most like likely
ly likely the first time) should in his search for some clean recreation
here among people who give Uncle Sam four hours work for
eight hours pay plus twenty five percent .differential In deah
Old Balboa should ask one of the fairer sex (Teenage) to skate
Wth him. It's a crime, while on the other hand a group f
under prlveleged untouchables (boy ana girls) on motorcycles
or in cars that the twenty five percent differential paid for can
drive around the Canal Zone on weekends, shoot up and deface
government property thats''O.K.
If any of those underprivileged doahs should be unlucky
enough to be stopped by the Canal Zon police, they just get
stiff talking to. IX the Serviceman that wondered Into the
very ancient skating rink shpuld commit a misdemeanor, the
least he could expect in the Zone would be a fine, and when he
returned to Camp a Cdurt-Martlal.
I know in peacetime it's really unbearable, time on your
hands. No big defense jobs at high wages while "Those service servicemen
men servicemen protect your shores from enemy invasion." f
Those servicemen you despise so much were sent here and
will leave when they receive orders to do so. If they really
bother yon somtich' you arc at llbertr to leave- any- ttmr-no
waiting; for orders. That is If you and yours would be able to
aeeure position in those.-terrible United States that wont
donate deah Old Balboa an air-conditioned recreation center.
Or if you'd rather stay and fight the battle of Balboa why
dont you ask the servicemen tor helo? They came through
when the Canal Zone couldn't meet their community chest
quota (Remember?) $8,000.00 I believe.
Here's another idea why don't ycu put your lorgnette at
high port, round up your friends, sell a few of your Cadillacs
and buy a do-it-yourself kit?
In closing I would like to leave this thought with you.
