The curtain goes up this week-
end on the second round of the
Canal Zone's -oral polio vaccine
drive, as Atlantic-sideirs are
provided with Type II and Type
III vaccine.
Except for a final "'booster,"
the Atlantic-side program will
conclude the Canal Zone's ef-
fort to "stamp out polio." No
time has.. been set for giving
the "booster which will com-
bine all three types of vaccine.
Although it_ takes all three
types of the vaccine to provide
complete protection, Health
Bureau officials say the order
in which they are taken makes
no difference in the beneficial
results. They advise everyone
to take the combined dose of
Type II and Type III vaccine
this weekend, whether they have
had Type I or not.
Registration forms should be
completed ahead of time 'in or

I've heard the ,observation that rank is like charm: If
you've .got it, you don't need anything else; if you haven't got
it, nothing else counts.
From the 'comments heard after -Monday -evening's Civic
Council meeting in Balboa, it was .obvious that Lieutenant Go-
vernor Parker has both. His blend of reasonableness and inci-
siveness impressed itself ,on those present :and numerous com-
plimnentary remarks were -heard -during the coffee time which
slowed the session.
I can't help but agree with Colonel Parker .about the need
for :a forceful, working PTA here. There are problems in all
'schools that ,can be solved by parents and teachers working
together .and it's one of the .best ways of finding tout that ,a
Problem really ,does exist. But more importantly, I think it's
time we 'started dealing with our problems instead ,of -dumping
e-verything in Uncle's lap. My main complaint on life at 'the

JUST THOUGHTS: I'd 'like to make ,a tour ,of the 'Governor's
Residence, *a la the White House tours. Wonder if 'Mrs. Fleming
'would look with favor on such a project for ;all, of -us? 'Visiting

.PERSONAL AND OTHERWISE: My boys worried that it
might rain on Astronaut :Cooper on his flight over Panama...
and they found it unbelievable that such a ,glamorous personage
should eat anything so mundane as a peanut *butter sandwich.

Where ;a disabled vehicle is stopped in 'such *a position that

WVhenever 'help is needed, a white -cloth or handkerchief should

The collection includes round-
shoulderen beer and stout bot-
tles, a s uar e-shouldered
schnapps bottle, and several
colored bottles which are be-
lieved to have held wine. There
also are several small flavoring
or patent medicine bottles and

one small tabasco sauce bottle
which is, somewhat more crude
but still similar to those now
One real oddity in the.lot is
a round-bottomed glass bottle
some type of soda water. The
Irish firm which used it stilt
is in business
The bottles were presented to
the Museum through the coope-
ration of Col. Mattnew C. Har-
rison, Director of the E&C
Bureau, and Chartes MeG.

"HAPPY BIRTHIAY!" said a caller in
greeting Mrs. Patricia Maloney Markun
wednesday. It actually wasn't her birthday,
but it was the publication date of her latest
book, "The First Book of Central America
and Panama."
This book joins two other "Firsts": "The
First Book of The Panama Canal". and "The
First Book of Mining." Both the latter are
also published in Spanish. She has written,
too, "The Secret of El Baru" which has
been published in England as well as' the
United States.
The author, wife of 'David J. Markun,
Panama Canal General Counsel, was born
in Minnesota. She probably got-her first boost
on the road to a writing career when she
won first prize in a children's short story
contest sponsored by a Duluth newspaper.
Mrs. Markun is a graduate of the School
O Journalism at the University of Minnesota
god ,worked in radio, newspaper, magazine
d public relations fields. She wa advertis-
publicity director at the Hotel Nicollet
en her husband completed law school and
e couple came to the'Canal Zone..
The Markuns -have four children, Sybil,
Meredith, David and Paul, and, the former
radio news writer, who had majored in radio
; journalism, found herself delving into chil-
dren's, books, alid telling children's stories.
One thing led to another, and the Markun
list of children's books began.
Publication of her latest work, "The
First.Book of Central America and Panama"
brought Pat Markun a letter from her Profes-
sor of Journalism, Mitchel V. Charnley, who
said the University is "getting something of a
shelf of Markun publications in Heggen Li-
Mrs. Markun still keeps her hand in the-
radio writing field with a program broad-
cast over CFN, the Armed Forces Radio.

CAPTAIN A. J. MCLEAN of Margarita is one
of the senior pilots of the Panama Canal. He
is a graduate of King's Point and was a
Captain of the Robin Line, sailing the South
Africa route, before coming to the Isthmus.
Sailing the seven seas may sound glamior-
ous, but in reality is quite the opposite, says
Captain McLean,,who took the Panama Canal
position so that he could be with his family.
Captain and Mrs. McLean live in Marga-
rita and have two children, a son, Thomas,
13, and a daughter, Sally, 10.
What does. a Panama Canal pilot do in
his leisure time? He goes sailing. At least
Captain McLean does. His hobby is yacht
racing, and right now he is building a Mer-
cury sail boat.

Montana To Panama

Beats 50
An overland trek from Bil- '.
lings, Montana to Panama is
somewhat more than the .50-
mile hike prescribed' by
President Kennedy, but a young
man named Larry Larson
managed it with little trouble.
He arrived on the Isthmus
this week from Mexico and' '
Central America not too much
worse for wear after making a,
good part of the journey on
foot. He admitted le hitch

His command of Spanish is
so slight that he is limited to

this made little difference to
the friendly natives in Central
America, who often invited him
for dinner and put him up for
the night. It did' make a dif-
ference, however, when he
found that a bus or a car on
which he had gotten a ride,
went off in an entirely dif-
ferent direction than he had

were a breeze to young Larry.
The border officials apparently
were relieved to find a -U.S.
citizen without baggage, without
transportation and apparently
with little other of the finer
things of life in his possession.
While other travelers might be
stopped for hours, young Larry
was waved through with a
friendly smile and a stamp on
his passport.




It's Lt. Col. Daniel M.
Leininger now, .with the promo-
tion of the Military Assistant to
the Canal Zone Governor.
He came to the Canal Zone
as a Major on July 18, 1961,
succeeding Lt. Col. Harvey C.
Colonel Leininger is a 1946
graduate of the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point and
came to his new post here
from -the Command and Gen-
eral Staff College at Fort
Leavenworth, Kansas. He holds
a master's degree in civil
engineering and previously
served in the Far East and
with the Headquarters Con-
tinental Army Command at
Fort M6nroe, Va. His Far East
assignments included duty in
Korea and Japan.
Colonel and Mrs. Leininger
have three children, Denny, 7,
Janet, 5, and Lisa, 6 months.

La Virgen del Carmen

Patrona de Taboga

Una de las muestras mAs
singulares de devoci6n cristia-
na es la que se registrar cada
afio en la Isla de Taboga, y
en la que los oriundos de la
isla, asi como gran nimero de
personas procedentes de otros
puptos de la Repdblica, rinden
su culto a Nuestra Sefiora del
Carmen, Patrona 4e Taboga.-
Siendo Taboga tUna isla, su
configuraci6n geogrifica -ofrece -
campo propicio para que la
romeria de devotes se haga en
forma distinta a como .seohace,-
en poblaciones de tierra lirme.
La procesi6n que se, realize
el 16 de julio de cada afio,Dia'
de la Virgen del Carmen; se
hace a bordo de lanchas que
hacen un recorrido frente.a las
costas de la isla, precedidas
por aquella en que va la mila-
* grosa Santa. Es asi como los
taboganos demuestran la gran
fe que tienen en la Virgen del
Carmen, Santa Patrona de su
pueblo, y Sefiora de sus ruegos
y sfiplicas. La procesi6n de este
ano se realizarA el domingo 21
de julio.

Pocos son los lugares en todo
el mundo en donde, con una
procesi6n maritima, se le rinda
cult a \un santo de la Iglesia
Con esta singular manifesta-
ci6n de religiosidad, Taboga
afiade otro important aspect
a su condici6n de centro turis-
tico6 por excelencia. *
Situada en la Bahia de Pana-
mi, a corta distancia de la
ciudad capital, y a la que se
Ilega por via maritima en una

el punto mas visitado en toda
la Repiblica de Panarmi. De
su tranquilo ambiente y sus am-
plias y limpias playas disfrutan
por,igual panamefos y turistas
que legan desde -el extranjero.
Es por ello que, para mayor
comodidad de sus multiples vi-
sitantes, se ,haya construido en
Taboga un modern hotel, y.
que el Instituto Pariamefio de
