Colonel Parker will become
Lieutenant Governor of the
Canal Zone on April 8 with
the departure of Lt. Gov.
Walter P. Leber for Cincinnati,
hio, and new duties as Ohio
Aiver Division Engineer.
The incoming Lieutenant
Governor is not exactly a
newcomer to the Isthmus,
having previously served, from
1952 to 1954, as Military
Assistant to the Governor.
A 1940 graduate of the U.
S. Military Academy at West
Point, Colonel Parker has
been on duty with the Port-
land Engineer District in Ore-
gon, with the First Corps in
Korea, and in Washington since
leaving the Zone.
Colonel Leber, who has
served as Lieutenant Governor
since June 26, 1961, recently
was nominated for promotion
to Brigadier General by Pres-
ident Kennedy. He is schedul-
ed to assume his new duties
in Cincinnati soon after leaving
the Isthmus.

Lt. Gov. Walter P. Leber outlines some of the activities and
plans of the Canal organizations to Col. David S. Parker, who will
become Lieutenant Governor early next month. Colonel Parker
arrived on the Isthmus Monday, March 25 and will assume his
new duties on April 8.

There's a lot of whispering,
and giggling, and costume-
planning going on these days
as plans are made for the
fifth annual SPCA Pet Show,
to be held on Saturday, April
6, at 1 p.m. at Symington
Field, Rodman Naval Station.
The costume parade always
is a highlight of the show,
with the pets in fancy dress,
and apparently having as much
fun as the audience. A wee
white mouse in garden dress
and floppy hat, last year, was
one of the smallest costumed
All pets, except horses, are
eligible for entry whether
pedigreed or just plain mixed
breed. Applications for entry,
each one accompanied by the
$1 entrance fee, should be sent
to the Canal Zone Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, Box 246, Balboa, by
April 1.
The trophies and ribbons to
be awarded at the pet show
are now on display in the
windows of the Balboa Retail
Store. In addition to the rib-
bons and trophies, door prizes
will be awarded.
Ample parking and seating
facilities are arranged at

48 full-time and part time
instructors employed this year
exceed the wartime enrollment
of 46 in 1943.
The enrollments increased aft-
er World War II to nearly 200,
with G.I. Bill students, but
dropped back to 88 in 1952.
Thereafter it began to grow
once more, reaching 150 in 1953
and staying around that figure
until 1955-56 when the peak' was
192. Since then, enrollment has
been: 1956-57, 198; 1957-58, 169;
1958-59, 176; 1959-60, 174; 1960-
61, 227; and 1961-62, 340.
The College started with 368
students last September, and

The cache of gold jewelry,
rowboats, bicycles and other
items which were put up for
sale by the Panama Canal
Storehouse recently proved to
be a bargain hunter's paradise
with 18-karat gold bracelets
going for as little as $26 and
a rowboat for $21.'
The Storehouse Branch re-
ceived and opened 63 bids on
the 34 items included on the
list of lost and unclaimed
merchandise which had been
held by the Canal Zone Police

ing in weight from 10:10 grams
to 60.5 grams, proved most
popular. High bids ranged
from $26.02 on the lighter
weight to $96 for the heavy
nine-strand type.
Most of a package lot of
400 gold filled men's watch
bands went for a high bid of
59 cents each. A wrist watch
was sold for $1.30, an umbrella
for 20 cents, a bicycle for
$3.80 and a small toy scooter
for 20 cents.

of their deadliness when eaten.

Judo Tournament

More than 400 people were on
hand at the Balboa YMCA last
Sunday to see Bruce G. Perry
of the Canal Zone Postal Divi-
sJon win the championship for
all weight divisions in the judo
tournament between the Canal
Zone Judo Club and two Colon
judo clubs.
Weighing in at 165 pounds,
Perry had to run the gamut
of eight able and powerful ad-
versaries. including one wegh-
ing more than 200 pounds, to
achieve his victory and cham-
pionship. In one spectacular
throw, he continued an. action
from on the mat to a standing
position then neatly hurled his
opponent for a full point count.
David Ossie and Robert U.
Schultz, the latter the runnerup
for the championship, also turn-
ed in notable performances. A
demonstration of Karate tech-
nique was given by Sgt. Wil-

ham Kam, U.S. Army, who
also served as one of the re-
ferees for the judo tournament.
With a single chopping action
with one hand, Sergeant Kam
smashed a three-thickness layer
of boards, each more than an
inch thick. He then splintered
a similar set of boards with a
deft kick of his foot.
The tournament, made pos-
sible through cooperation of
the Balboa YMCA, with the en-
couragement and assistance of
Robert Wick, special programs
office an dstaff member of the
YM, was concluded with an-
nouncement of belt promotions

Sixth Grader Writes

On Panama Flowers

EDITOR'S NOTE Fort Kobbe Elementary School teachers
Jane Wooden and Phyllis Brennan suggested several days ago
that some of the compositions written by elementary school
pupils would prove popular with Spillway readers and submit.
ted a number of samples. Exercising our editorial prerogative
of selecting what we liked best and would fit in the space
available we picked the following item about flowers.
Keeping in mind the limitations imposed by space, other
elementary teachers are invited to submit any offerings they
may wish. All we ask is that they be typewritten, if pos.
sible, and the student, grade, school, and teacher identified.
Submissions may or may not be published, but they will be
considered, and we'll attempt to return those not used but
cannot guarantee to do so.

One of these is the Wood
Rose. The -Wood Rose is brown,
and has four seeds which
seem to be covered with black
velvet. The seeds are found
in the round center part of
the flower. When the seed is

There is also a wild Wood

The African Tulip Tree has
bright orange-red flowers. The
strangely shaped bud, with a

There are two different types
of wild cotton, poro-poro and
kapok. Both types of cotton
have very attractive flowers.
The flower of the kapok is
white and the flower of the

Just some of the very
interesting flowers of Panama
are: the Frangipani, which
has a wonderfully sweet smell;
the bloom of the Cannon-ball
tree; the Shower-of-Gold, which
is now beginning to bloom;
the Hibiscus; the Ixora, more
commonly called "firecracker"
the Orchid tree; the Pride of
India; 'the Barbados lily which
grows from a bulb; the Red
Ginger; the Torch Ginger.
When flowers are cut open
it is interesting to see the
things of the inside that you
can not see on the outside.
Flowers are based on certain
numbers. If a flower is based
on five, there will be five of

Hay que echar un pie para

hacer atracar al "France"

Se necesita mAs que un trio
de remoicadores y uno o dos
fracticos experimentados para
tlevar al muelle a un barco del
tamafio del gigantesco transa-
tjAntico "France".
Paro los miles de residents
del Istmo que vieron el lunes
la Ilegada y la partida del enor-
me barco en Cristobal, la ope-
raci6n fue facil y sin esfuerzo.
Pero para ios hombres en la
Division ae Navegaci6n ael Ca-
nal de PanamA, el exito de la
maniobra fue resuitado director
de la estrecha coordmaci6n de
veintenas de empleados y fun-
clonarios del Canal y los miem-
bros de ;a tribulacibn del navio.
Para el CapitAn Roy L.
Fearn, de Cristobal. quien tuvo
a su cargo el guiar el navio a
su muelle desae un punto a cua-
tio millas fuera del rompeolas
de Cristobal, el France era un
precioso y modern( navio equi-
pado con todas las sefiales co-
nocidas para la navegacion ma-
Pero pronto descubri6 que el
elegant barco de 67,000 tonela-
das brutas con su elevada su-
perestruLtura y puente situa-
dos a 80 pies sobre el agua,
oscilaba un poco con el fuerte
viento veranmego a traves de la
Bahia de Lim6n. El prolongado
f rance, cuando se movia a ve-
locidad reducida, requiri6 ma-
no firme en sus mandos.
Para llevar sin peligro al na-
vio al muelle, el CapitAn Hearn
y sus dos prActicos ayudantes
dependieron en la ayuda y ha-
bilidad de los capitanes de tres
remolcadores de Crist6bal que
se presentaron a servicio al
norte dei muelle de Crist6bal.
TambiAn estaban alli los em-
pleados del muelle cuya obliga-
ci6n era de afianzar los cabos
en el moment precise y asegu-
rarse que las medidas de segu-
ridad fueron tomadas para pro-
tecci6n de pasajeros, emplea-
dos del muelle y visitantes.
Fue un trabajo delicado que

tuvo que repetirse a la inversa
12 horas mAs tarde, cuando el
France fue separado del mue-
Ile, se dirigi6 lentamente ha-
cia el canal y parti6, con todas
sus luces encendidas, rumbo a
la entrada del rompeolas.
Tambi6n fue un buen espec-
ticulo para los espectadores
que se alinearon para ver par-
tir al France hacia Nueva York.
Algunos veterans dijeron que
nunca habian visto tanto interns
en un barco, aunque Crist6bal
ha sido una escala de muchos
de los mAs grandes y mas fa-

mosos barcos del mundo.
El CapitAn Hearn es un vete-
rano con 30 afios de experien-
cia como prActico del Canal. El
fue el practice a cargo de lie-
var al muelle al gran transa-
tlintico United States cuando
hizo su segunda visit a Cris-
t6bal en febrero. Tambi6n se
ha hecho cargo de barcos de
turismo como el "Mauretania"
y el "Rotterdam" y fue un prAc-
tico en el portaaviones "Valley
Forge" cuando pas6 por el Ca-
nal en 1953.
El Capitin Hearn, junto con

el CapitAn Frank Russell fueron
los prActicos de control en el
"Sinclair Petrolore", en 3959,
que con una anchura de 106.4
pies, ha sido el barco mAs an-
cho que jams haya transitado
por el Canal.
