It's Vaccine Time

On Atlantic Side

Atlantic-side- residents and
employees of the Canal who
are eligible for. Canal Zone
medical treatment will receive
their first dose, of. oral polio
vaccine this weekend.
The vaccine already has been"
administered in Gamboa and
Pacific-side communities.
The oral polio vaccine, which
is taken on a sugar cube,
provides protection not given
by other types of polio vaccine
and everyone is urged to take
it, even if they previously have
received Salk vaccine.
. There is no reaction to the
oral vaccine and persons with
allergies to penicillin or other
drugs can take it with complete
safety. Eighty-five million doses
of the vaccine have been given

in the United States.
Everyone is urged to comr
plete their registration forms
before visiting the clinics which
will operate in Gatun on Friday
and in Rainbow City, Coco So-
lo, Cristobal. 'and Margarita on
Saturday. Completing t h e
forms anead of time will pre-
vent delays at the clinic, where
the entire procedure for each
patient takes only a matter of
seconds after the forms are
The registration forms which
have been distributed are in
two parts, both of which must
be completed for each vaccine
recipient. One of the parts is
to be retained by the recipient
and.the other is to be retained
by the Health Bureau.

Image of Junior College

Sophomore, Canal Zone College
The "junior college" is a
fully competent and decidedly
necessary part of our educa-
tional system. It provides the
student with not only satisfac-
tory instruction, but does so at
a minimum of inconvenience
and expense. The images of
the junior college, however,
have not fared well.
One common junior college
image is that it is a second-
rate substitute for a four year
college. This is false. An
institution in its own right, it
offers general courses over a
wide variety of subjects design.
ed for vocational technical
training and to better prepare a
student for further study. The
courses offered are equivalent
to the freshman and sophomore
years at a four year college.

Credits received in th e s e
courses are usually transfer-
able if the grade is "C" or
Another false image is that
junior college instructors are
inadequately trained. S i n c e
* most freshman and sophomore
courses are basic, the instruct-
ors are required to hold at
least a Master's degree in their
fields. More instructors are
able to give better, personal
attention to individual students
because the classes are smaller.
The image that most often
causes students to .avoid a
junior college is that junior
colleges are "glorified high
schools" that lack tradition and
college spirits. It is true that
many junior colleges lack the
traditional trappings, but this
is due to the relative newness
of the junior college. Tradi-

Canal Zonie residents whose

ceive an ocean bill of lading
which should be presented first
to the Canal Zone Customs
for release. After Customs' re-
lease is obtained, the' bill

Persons receiving cargo car-
ried by the SS Cristobal should,
'upon notification of arrival of

they will find a copy of their

Customs' release is obtained

Americans are here again. I
looked at Pierre, the guide who
was talking with great respect
to the Americans. When he
turned and saw me he winked
at me. Pierre knew us all very
'well. .Since I am the leader
of my people, I know peoples'
talk. I had been down at the
Seine River getting food for
Gertrude and the kids. Pierre
turned anxiously to the hole-
in-the-wall where Gertrude and

He, gave me that "better not

I took one more look at the
Americans. There was a wo-I
man holding a baby, and a
girl about four or five tugging
impatiently at the father's
hand. I heard the Americans

D. C. I knew Americans were
crazy but not that crazy! Why

tion may come in the future.
Meanwhile, a new philosophy
about tradition must be dev-
eloped since it is not a vital
part of a good education.
Another Image is that only
the uninterested students with
low grades attend junior col.
leges. Most students attending
junior college have ability,
interest, and good 'high school
preparation. They may have
decided not to attend a four-
year educational institution for
financial reasons. Some stud-
ents desire two years of general
courses to help them choose
a vocation. Other students
desire only two years of a
general education. For those
students who do not feel ready
to separate from their home
and community, the junior
college offers two more years
to mature under its guidance
and leadership.
The false images must be
corrected since they are caus-
ing many students to miss the
values offered by the junior
college. As college enrollment
doubles in the future, more
junior colleges will be establish-
ed. As long as students main-
tain these false images they
will be unwilling to attend a
junior college. If forced to
attend, they will feel cheated
of a really good education.
The two-year college is an
institution whose program is
closely related to the com-
munity. Its proximity to the
homes of potential students, its
low cost, its broad admission
policies, anl its program geared
to the vocational needs of the
students all combine to encour-
age and make it possible for
them to enter. The junior
college is not a finishing school,
nor a preparatory school for
the standard college, nor a half,
college; it is an independent
school of higher learning with
its own independent functions
and goals.

began his usual talk about the
Eiffel Tower. I know it by
Pierre said, "The Eiffel
Tower was built for the. Paris
Exposition (or World Fair) of
1889. As you already know, we
are on the Champ de Mars in
Paris, France. When Alexander
Gustave Eiffel built it, the
tower cost over $1,000,000 and
was paid for by Eiffel except
for $292,000. In payment, Eiffel
was allowed to collect visitors'
fees for 20 years. The Eiffel
Tower was considered an en-
gineering marvel for many
years. It was the highest struc-
ture in the world. Now the
Empire State and Chrysler
Building are higher. The Eiffel
Tower is 1,056 feet high, includ-
ing a 55-foot TV antenna. It
contains 7,000 tons of iron and
"Elevators and stairways

Weather Station on top. There
meteoroligists study tempera-


ture, air currents, clouds,
winds, and rainfall. In World
War I, it was used as an
observation station. There are
also restaurants and platforms
for experiments."
Pierre forgot to mention that
in 1956 there was a fire on the
top of the Tower. Is remember
this fire very well. I was only
a tot and my father was seve-
rely burned.
We had been going all over
the tower as Pierre told the
Americans about it. They had
decided to go down the stair-
way to the ground when the
lady complained that her feet
hurt. I looked at them in wond-
er. Sacre bleu!!! They were
bigger than Pierre's!!! I judged
them to be about a size 10V2.
No wonder they were hurting!

their long black car Pierre turn-

he was of me for not interfer-

red letter swimming day.,
Robert J. Steler, money
order window clerk in the Pa-
nama Canal Postal Division,
had just completed the Ameri-
can Red Cross 50-mile swim
program. For this swim mile-
age, equivalent to swimming
the Panama Canal, he was
presented a Red Corss 50-mile
badge, pin. and card.
That same morning Mrs.
Sieler (Lillian T.) had com-
pleted the 10-mile swim and
received a card testifying to
the accomplishment. For her'
this was a big achievement,
too, for she had always had
a fear of the water. When
swimming was advised by her
physician a few years ago she
started Ulessons and talked. her
husband into accompanying
her to the swimming pool.

Both became interested in
swimming, and have the
badges and pins to prove their
degrees of proficiency.
Mr., Sieler will retire from
Panama Canal service in May.
Mr. and Mrs. Sieler plan to
make their future home in
Seaside, Calif. They came to
the ,Canal Zone in 1951, and
while Mr. Sieler's Panama Ca-
nal service totals only 11
years, 8 months, 3 days, his
total U. S. Government serv-
ice is 32 years, 6 months, 6

with the Army, the Navy, and
then in the Post Office in

a century ago, in 1913, at the Empire townsite, and prizes were
awarded the marksmen by Col. George W. Goethals. About 400

Fly In


By Club

Because of a continuing need
for the interchange and co-
ordination of information and
ideas among aviation organiza-
tions and clubs on the Isthmus,
the Albrook' Aero Club has
organized -a special "FLY-IN"
for. all Isthmian 'pilots at
Madden Airstrip (Calzada Lar-
ga) for the morning of Sunday,
April 28.
Club officials have extended
an invitation to all Isthmian
pilots, both those in the Zone
and those throughout the
Republic of Panama, to attend
the FLY-IN, which will be
from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
Objectives of the event are
to promote greater exchange
of information, develop in-
creased pilot influence in for-
mulation of services and pro-
cedures for flight safety and
efficiency, and improve under-
standing and friendship among
all Isthmian pilots.
The Madden Air Strip has
been made available by Major
Juan Mas, Director General of
Civil Aviation in the Republic
of P'anama.
Food will be served for all
pilots and co-pilots beginning
at 11 a.m. and there will be'
a number of contests for both
student and private pilots.
These will include spot land-
' ings, short field. takeoffs, and
events such as balloon burst-
ing and bombing from a pre-
determined altitude to demon-
strate pilot proficiency. There
also will be a paper-cutting

NOTE TO READERS: This column, which the editor hopes
to make a permanent feature of the SPILLWAY, is intendec
as a catch-all for short contributions, readers' comments, opi-
nions, or questions. All we ask is that comments, opinions, ot
questions be kept brief and to the point. Each contribution, com.
ment, or question must be signed by the person submitting it,
although the editor will omit names on publication, if requested.
The editor also reserves the right to edit letters and other contri-

to be the thought going through the mind of this unidentified
dog as he eyes the "no dogs permitted" sign on the front tp ors
of the Balboa Heights Administration Building.
Anyone You Know?
Boss to new stenographer: "Now look here, I fired
three girls for revising my letters, see?
"Okay.. .Now take a letter and take it the way I
tell you."
And the next morning, Axton T.Jones of Transporta-
tion and Terminals got the following letter:
"Mr. O0. A. or A. 0. or something, look it up, Jones,
why are there so many people named Jones, Chief of
T&T, sounds like some kind of explosive, doesn't it?
Dear Mr. Jones, uh, uh, hmmm. You're a hell of a
businessman. No, start over. He's a nut, but I can't
insult him or he'll probably sue me. Dear Mr; Jones,
The last shipment of soap sent through your unit was
in horrible condition and I want you to understand-no,
scratch that out I want you to understand hmmm
- unless you can handle, process, no, handle, future
shipments better, you needn't bother no more, period,
or whatever the grammar is, and pull down your skirt.
This stinking cigar is out again. Where was I? Paragraph.
"Your handling wasn't what you said it would be -
I should say it wasn't. Dem representatives of yours
said that just sending it through you would keep our
employees from getting .the itch or pimples. Them bums
tried to put over a lot of hooey on us. Whydyou flappers
want to paint yer faces up like Indians on the warpath?
We're sending back the last shipment received through
you and you'll probably have to make it good. Sure
you'll have to make it good. I'd like to feed it- to him
with a spoon and make him eat it, the dirty bum. Now
read the letter over no, don't read it over, we've
wasted enough time on that goof. Fix it up and sign my
name. What do you way we go out to lunch?"
EDITOR'S NOTE: We are confident that no one in
the Canal organization would be guilty of such a heinous
thing as depriving his secretary of the right to expurgate
his dictation, but thought the secretaries, especially,
would enjoy the above, even though there might be a
boss here or there who will squirm. Incidentally, we don't
believe the allegations about Mrs. Jones' Bureau which are
in the letter:

Venerable Edward J. Cooper,
first chaplain of the Isthmian
Canal Commission and rector
emeritus of Christ-Church-by.

Lead Pilot of the ;Panama Ca.

Church-by-the-Sea Tuesda y

Cooper on his 100th birthday.

member of the honor guard at
the burial of two Unknown
American Servicemen in Arl-
ington Comentery near Wash-
The highest award given by
the United States was presented
to Mr. Badders for the part he
played in salvage operations on
the submarine Squalus, which
went down in 240 feet of water

off Portsmouth, N.H., in May
1939. In addition to this medal,
he holds the Navy Cross for
work he did in the salvage of

Isthmus in 1940 by the U.S.
Navy to train diving personnel
for wartime ship repair and
salvage work. He has been with
the Canal organization ever
since. This trip to Washington
will be his last visit to the
United States prior to his re-
tirement in September of this

BURTON E. DAVIS, Plant Engineer in
the Industrial Division of the Panama Canal
Marine Bureau, dreamed during his boyhood
of coming to see the Panama Canal. He was
8 or 9 years old when a Panama Canal film
S. was shown in. the Opera House in his home
town of Pitman, N. J., and the little boy set
his sights on an- objective that was fulfilled
in early manhood.
He was out of school when he saw an
advertisement for a tracer in the Panama
Canal Mechanical Division, applied for the
job, and got it.
He was promoted from tracer to drafts-
man, and about five years ago became
Plant Engineer. Mr. Burton's service is
broken, for he' left the Canal Zone to return
to the United States to work in drafting, but
later came back to the same job.
Besides being Plant Engineer, he also
handles all naval architecture for the Indus-
trial Division.
Mr. Davis, whose hobby is the collection
of coins and stamps, is also a mineralogist.
... He is a charter member and first president
~.W of the Mineral Society of Balboa and is the
senior rock hound on the Isthmus.

photographed in the wheelhouse of Alhajuela,
got his first look at the Panama Canal when
he was with the U.S. Navy and assigned to
the Isthmus.
On receiving an honorable discharge he
returned to the Panama Canal and worked, as
an operator of a small tug before' transferring
to the Dredging Division, where he worked
about 10 years. In October 1956, he transfer-
red to the Marine Bureau on the Atlantic Side
of the Isthmus.
He lives in Margarita and has four child-
ren, -one married, one a towing locomotive
operator on the Atlantic Side, another a stu-
dent in the Canal Zone, and the fourth em-
ployed by the Chase. Manhattan Bank.
