White House Reception

A reception at the White
House in Washington, D.C., a
personal greeting from the
President of the United States,

and a chat with the President's
sister-in-law, came as fitting
cliinax to the career of Medal
of Honor holder William E.

A CONSTRUCTION DAY BRIDE compared fashion notes with a
newcomer to the Isthmus just before the annual luncheon of the
Cristobal Woman's Club, which this year had as its theme "A Fan-
fare of Fashion." The Construction Day bride is Mrs. Fred Whaler
(center), who came to the Isthmus in 1908. Her husband retired in
1946. Mrs. Whaler taught sewing to her daughter, Mrs. Burnell Dowler
(right) of Margarita, who now teaches beginners and advanced sew-
ing, using patterns, at the Cristobal Woman's Club. Mrs. Dowler is
chairman of the Arts and Crafts Committee. Mrs. Wade Naron

As a Medal of Honor holder,
Mr. Badders and his wife were
guests recently at a Military
Reception at the White House.
Shortly before this affair, he
and 200 or more other Medal
of Honor holders were greeted
personally by President Ken-
nedy in the White House Rose
The President took time to
shake the hand of each of the
m-tn who hold the highest
award their country can give.
Later, Mr. and Mrs. Badders
had a long talk with Mrs. Ethel
Kennedy, wife of the U.S. At-
torney General. Mrs. Badders
described both the President
and his sister-in-law as people
of great personal charm.
Another big thrill during the
busy *veek in Washington was
a reunion with Vice Admiral 0.
F. Naquin, Ret., who was com-
manding officer of the Sub-
marine Squalus when it sank
off Portsmouth in 1939. Mr.
Badders received the Medal of
Honor for his work in the salv-
age and rescue work on this
He was interviewed for tele-
vision news programs several
times and as a result was call-
ed by friends from as far away
as California. Mr. Badders
said, however, that he never
did manage to see one of the
telecasts on which he appeared.

If you ask protocol Officer
Mike Corco about the cartoon
above, he 'might be tempted
to alter the facts slighty. To
protect him against tempta-
tion (never let it be said that
we led him astry), we'll tell
what happened last Sunday.
Mike went fishing with Gov-
ernor Fleming. Somewhere
near Taboga Island the Gov-
ernor decided to try a little'
jigging and he asked Mike to
drop the anchor over to'steady
things a bit.
'Twas no sooner said than
done, but Mike was left look-,
ing strangely goggle-eyed as
the tail of the rope slid over-
board and down, down, down
in the wake of the anchor.
Someone' forgot one detail: To
do' any good, an anchor must
be fastened to the boat which
it -ie supposed to anchor.
Mike wouldn't comment last
week on whether it was 'the
plunging anchor or other fac-
tors which caused the finny
brethren of the deep to de-
tect; but he did admit that
sone were caught either
before or after he played ap-
prentice seaman.

whole' episode in which his

Seems Mancha claimed sick
leave privileges for a few
days last week, leaving the
whole detail of- escorting po-
peyed smallfry around Sum-
mit to his unsuspecting burrito
All was well by midweek,
however, as Mancha returned-
to the bridle paths and Gato
brayed his delight.

Get Informal


The Panama Canal Zone
Atlantic Side Dockworkers'
Union has been extended of-
ficial recognition by the Pana-
ma Canal in accordance with
Executive Order 10988 which
provides a framework for em-
ployee-management cooperation
in the Federal service.
In a letter dated MayT 1963
to Inedio Ceballos, president of
-the Union, E. A. Doolan, Per-
sonnel Director, granted the
Atlantic Side Dockworkers'
Union informal recognition to
represent its members employ-
ed in the Terminals Division
(Atlantic) of the Transporta-
tion and Terminals Bureau.
Informal recognition establishes
the right of the organization to
be heard on matters of interest
'to its members, but places
management officials under no
obligation to seek its Views. ,
To -qualify for informal re-
cognition, the Dockworkers'
Union submitted the following:
A copy of its by-laws; a
roster of the organization's of-
/ ficers and representatives; a
statement that the organization
does not assert the right to
strike against the Government
of the United States or any
agency thereof, or to assist or
participate in such strike; a
statement that the organization
does not advocate the over-
throw of the constitutional form
of Government of the United
States; a statement that the
organization has no rule, pro-
cedure, policy, ritual or prac-
tice which permit or result in
discrimination on the basis of
race,- creed, color or national
origin; and a statement that
the organization is not, subject
to corrupt influences of any
party, movement, or o t h e r
group which is opposed to basic
democratic principles.

Library patrons who patron-
ize the "who done it" shelf may
not know that the Canal Zone
Library features the following
attractions: browsing collec-
tion, map and print file, micro-
film readers, batea designs,
vertical file, U.S. and foreign
telephone directories, New York
Times and Miami Herald, both
received daily by air mail, and
can furnish talking books for
the blind.

The Canal Zone Library cir-
culates approximately 400,000
items a year and at the Main

reference and research ques-
tions yearly.

An increase in the premium
rates for the Uniform Health
Benefits Plan in which some
135,000 U.S. Federal employee
-annuitants who retired before
July 1, 1960 or their survivor-
annuitants are enrolled, will
become effective July 1, 1963,
it has been announced by the
U.S. Civil Service Commission.
At the same time it was an-
nounced that the Commission
has decided to increase the
Government's contribution to
annuitants enrolled in the Uni-
form Plan, as well as to an-
other 110,000 annuitants in
various qualified private plans.
The Government's monthly
contribution will be increased
from $3 to $3.50 monthly for a
self-only enrollment and from
$6 to $7 for a self-and-family
enrollment These increases,
also effective July 1, will apply
to all annuitants who are en-
rolled in the Uniform Plan or
in a qualified private plan.
The premium increase in the
Uniform Plan will amount to
approximately 15 percent, the
Commission said. It is based
on the actual use of benefits
under the plan. Because the
annuitant group is in the older
age brackets, its use of me-
dical care is much greater than
that of a group with a normal
age distribution.
The Commission noted that
most of the annuitants who
elected qualified private plans
have already experienced or
soon will, an increase in pre-

miums since the original
amount of the Government's
contribution to the cost of. their
health insurance was set in
1960. The Commission narrow-
ly averted a premium increase
in the Uniform Plan last year,
The Civil Service Commission

Divisions and Units of the Transportation and Terminals Bureau
were recognized for safety records achieved during the last
year. The employees of the Railroad Division worked a whole
calendar year without a disabling injury. Mr. Brayton is the
third head of an operating division to be so honored since the
inauguration in 1957 of the present Panama Canal Safety Award

retirement luncheon party given in honor of
Mrs. Maphis, at right, of the Personnel Bureau
on her birthday. There were 101 guests pre-
sent. ,
The "This is you life" presentation, writ-'

.n the' Personnel Bureau, was not as elabo-
rate as the famous program of the same
'name but, like the States' production, cover-
ed the past, present, and future of Mrs.
Maphis' life.
Mrs. Maphis, who will retire May 31
after more than 19 years Panama Canal serv-

Dr. and Mrs. C. F. Briscoe.
She was graduated- from 'Mississippi State
College, where her father was a professor, in
1922 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
In 1927 she came to the Canal Zone with
her husband, Sam W. Maphis, a customs
official here. She was a substitute teacher
in the Canal Zone schools and for a time was
a reporter for the Panama American.
That latter career came to a sudden end
in connection with an assignment to interview
Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, who was visiting
the Canal Zone. Mrs. Maphis had made pre-
vious' plans with friends to go to the Interior.
And to the Interior she went. When she re-
turned to the newspaper .office without the
interview, her journalistic, career e n d e d

service has been with the Personnel :Bureau.

Panama Canal printer who worked for the
Canal for more than 42 years.
After marriage, the couple left for the
United States and Mr. Van Wagner was eng-
aged in the export business, travelling
through Latin America. He became ill in the
States in 1940 and returned' to the Canal Zone
to recuperate.
He was with the Municipal Division of
the Panama Canal when World .War II start-

ficer in the Seabees in the Pacific, South Pa-

later combined with the Maintenance Divi-'

Not many people realize that
the Canal Zone Library has the
complete files of both the Pa-
nama American and the Star

Spanish which date back to the
beginning of the papers. In
the case of the Star and Herald,
this is more than 100 years.
The older files have been plac-
ed on microfilm.
Although the Canal Zone Li-
brary was established original-
ly as a library featuring English
language books if now has six
installations which are pre-
dominately Spanish Paraiso

Santa Cruz Circulating Library;
and three job-site libraries (at
the harbormaster's office,
