Island Nations Anniversary
Assistant Superintendent, Latin American Schools
August is a month which has much meaning for two
of the most 'colorful islands in the beautiful and pictur-
esque chain of islands known as the West Indies. It was
in this month one year ago that Jamaica, in which more
than half the people of the West Indies live, and Trinidad,
with its associate island of Tobago, took the step which
made them the first new nations in this hemisphere in
over a half-a-century.,
Bauxite and banana-producing Jamaica and Trinidad
of calypso fame, with its asphalt and petroleum industry,
now enjoy international status as members of the British
Commonwealth of free nations. As sovereign nations,
they seek to promote the welfare of their citizens as well
as contribute to the preservation of the rights of all free
The governments of these nations are engaged in
developing within their citizens a consciousness of their
rights as well as their responsibilities. The. task should
be easier since the people of the West Indies as a whole
have a sense to duty and a capacity for work. These
characteristics should in time serve to make these island
nations centers of interest. Reports from the islands dur-
ing their first year of independence show much social
growth and many plans for economic development.
Their emergence as free and independent nations
without tension and strife can best be described in the
words of Sir Garnet Gordon, who, in reference to the
islands of the West Indies, mentioned "their wide base of
educational and social services, excellent Civil Service,
experience in democratic government, and a way of life
which is one of the best examples of harmonious relations
in communities that are crisis-crossed in all directions by
racial mixtures and complexions, classes and interests,
property, wealth, ignorance and learning."
Edward Seaga, Minister of Development and Welfare
of Jamaica, expressed the feeling and satisfaction of the
people of these islands in a statement issued one year ago
which said, "Independence is like moving from a rented
house into a house of one's own. Ownership of a home
brings with it pride, a feeling of security and a sense of
responsibility." On this the first anniversary, Jamaica
and Trinidad-Tobago, can be assured of the best wishes
of Panama and the Canal Zone for a stable and prosperous
future. A

The Concubine by Nora Lofts
is a biographical novel about
Anne Boleyn, the second wife
of Henry VIII of England. This
is familiar story which follows
'historical events with precision.
It probably would. be more of
a biography than a novel were
it not for the many revealing
dialogues between the principal
characters which Miss Lofts
uses with sympathy and skill.
The result is an excellent and
exciting historical novel.
Does It Make Into A Bed? by
Lorna Novak is an entertaining
comedy about the impact of a
sophisticated New York bride
on a small Texas town. Full of
enthusiasm, and of the reform-
ing spirit she was determined
that her easygoing, oil rich
husband should be transformed
into a cultured, debonair and
well-gromed man-about-Texas.
Her efforts and those of the
other wives of the town make
an amusing story.

Wolfe and his pal come through

is rough. Fans will like this
latest Nero Wolfe story.

pathetic drawings. Alden Hatch

In every instance, the points
are awarded "to the place,"
rather than to the individual.
Thus, if one who is not eligible
for the Ryder Cup team, such
as, an Approved Tournament
Player, a foreign-born PGA mem-
ber or an amateur, finishes in
the first 10 in an official tourna-
ment those points are lost. In
otlhir words, if a player in one
of those categories should finish
second in a PGA Co-Sponsored
Tournament, his 42 points would
not go to the eligible PGA mem-
ber who finished third. Instead
the later wpuld set the 28 third-
place points.

Arnold Palmer, with a new mo-

place in official tournament
earnings was Julius Boros, with
$63,996.67. Jack Nicklaus was at

Big Success;

The'Coco Solo swimming pool
was the scene of much splash-
ing a c t i v i't y on Wednesday
evening, July 24, when the
Schools' Division Summer Re-
creation Program sponsored a
Family Night Splash Party,
with 181 "fish" of all ages and
abilities participating.
After dividing the participants
into t e a m s, activities com-
menced with a balloon-blowing-
popping relay, with Team 4
nosing out Team 6 to win that
contest. Our ever-popular water
bombardment w a s won by
Team 8, which finished with
the least number of balls on
their side of the. pool.
Other activities included a
fashion-parade relay, a penny-
hunting coning contest, and a lighted-
candle relay. Not to be forgot-
ten were our small fry non-
swimmers and their contests
of penny-hunting and w a t e r
bombardment. Prizes of candy
bars and gum were enthusias-
tically received by the winners.
Pool personnel appreciated
the participation and assistance
of the adults who joined in the
fun, and hope to see even more

JOHN A. BARBOUR' (above,
center) lead foreman, wi re
chief in the Communications
Branch of the Panama Canal
Electrical Division, is eyed with
awe by co-workers as he bites
into a giant-size hamburger
served him at lunch in the Ad-
ministration Building cafeteria
Tuesday, his last work day.
For years he never ordered
anything but a hamburger for
lunch and the super-hamburger
was a result of a conspiracy
between coworkers, Mrs. N.
Collett, Balboa Heights Serv-
ice Center, manager, and the
baker at the Balboa Service

From left are: Larry Bap-
tiste, Mrs. Juanita Karst, John
Barbour, and Mrs. Marguerite
Runck, all of the Communica-
tions Branch.

Mr. Barbour is a native of
Jersey City, N. J., and his
fellow workers claim that he
and Alexander Graham Bell
must h a v e worked together.
Actually he worked in the New
York telephone section before
coming to the Isthmus in Sep-
tember 1925.
All of his Panama Canal serv-
ice was with the Communica-
tions Branch of the Electrical
Division. He worked as a tel-
ephone installer and maintenan-
ceman, then was promoted to
shop foreman and later to lead
foreman or wire chief, the posi-
tion he held at retirement.
He is a member of Chagres
Lodge, A. F. and A. M. and of
the Scottish Rite. He has been
active in bowling circles and
fellow workers say he's "a
terrible golfer but a good

He is married and the couple
has one daughter, Florence,
who was graduated from Bal-
boa High School last June and
will enter the University of -
Tampa in the fall.
Mr. and Mrs. Barbour plan to
leave the Isthmus 6n the SS
Cristobal August 25 and will-
make their home, for the pre-
sent, at St. Petersburg, Fla.
A retirement party in honor
of Mr. Barbour will be held on
August 16 at the Elks Home,
Balboa. Dinner will be follow-
ed by dancing, and refresh-
ments will be served during
the evening.
Tickets may be obtained by
telephoning R. L. Boyer, Bal-

Boating Needn't Be Dangerous

One of the fastest growing
forms of outdoor recreation,
boating this year will attract
more than 40 million Americans.
Due to indifference to safety and
sportmanlike practices, mishaps
and injuries will be numerous.
"While this growing interest
in a popular water sport is to
be cheered, it also boosts the
risk of increased water accidents
Sand drownings," points out Bob
Wick, Director of Physical Edu-
cation of the Balboa Armed Ser-
vices YMCA. "As the number of
boats on our waterways goes up,
so do the chances for mishaps.
Already, some 8 million boats
are crowding our inland and
coastal waters and the number
keeps rising." "
As part of its yearly campaign
for water safety, the YMCA re-
peats its first law of boating:
learn to swim first. Most boat-.
ing accidents are caused by
carelessness; forgetting or ig-
noring a few basic rules of
safety. It you can't swim, you
should stay out of boats.
"That many boating fans will
ignore this advice is unfortun-
ate," says Mrfi Wick. The lucky
ones will get by. The unlucky
ones won't and will contribute to
the total of nearly 7,000 drown-
ings predicted for the United
States this year."

Based on nearly 80 years of
experience in water safety, the
YMCA has set down simple,, ba-
sic guides designed to keep the
"pleasure" in pleasure boating.
"First," Mr. Wick says, "learn
to swim. Make sure you are
prepared for emergencies while
afolat, and avoid going out alone.
Every boat should carry some
kind of approved life preserver.
There are many types available,
ranging from simple floating seat
cushions to full size 'Mae West'
life-jackets. Small children should
never be allowed in a boat with.
out life preservers, no matter
how well they can swim. Strap
them on youngsters the moment
they step aboard and don't take
them off until they're safely
ashore again. However careful
you may be, children sometimes
do fall. overboard and boats will
capsize at times."
If your boat has a motor, a
fire extinguisher as part of your
regular' equipment is recom-
mended. '
When entering or leaving a
small boat, step in only at bow
or stern ends,. Stepping into the
middle can tip the boat and over-
turn or swamp it. And stand up
in a rowboat or chance while

the cause of more than one
If you must be a showoff, do
it ashore where your shenan-
igas are less likely to endanger
the lives of yourself and others.
"Swimming off a boat is fun,
but do it the safe way," cau-
tions Mr. Wick. "Never dive out
of 'a boat. Slide over the side
and climb back into the boat
over the end. If you're alone,
hang on to a rope fastened to
the boat."
Rough water and a stormy
weather are dangers every boat
man should guard against. If
you're going to spend any time
afloat, learn to read and heed
danger signals and keep up on
weather reports. If the weather
if threatening, keep your boat
tied up until it calms. If you do
get caught in a sudden squall
or storm in open water, head at
once for the more protected
Most small boats will float
when capsized or swamped and
can support several persons, re-
minds Mr. Wick. If your boat
overturns, remain calm and
hang on. Sooner or later another
boat is bound to come along and
pick you up. Trying to swim to
shore in most cases is an un-
necessary risk, even for good
It should go without saying
that every boatman should ob-
serve the rules of common court-
esy when afloat. Unfortunately,
many boating fans seem never
to have heard of courtesy. They
go roaring full throttle, cutting
dangerously close to swimmers,
fishermen or other boats. They
zoom into tight turns at high
speeds, risking .a capsizing and
endangering every life aboard.
They recklessly invite disaster
every time they pull away from
the dock.
Too often the invitation is ac-
cepted, and one more tragedy in
the water goes into the records.
"Boating has much to offer as
a healthful, enjoyable and relax-
ing form of recreation," says Mr.
Wick. "Common sense, courtesy
and care can make it safe re-
cre.etipn as well."

Wins Award

For Writing
DEAIN of Iowa City, Iowa,
whose book "Once Is A Habit!"
was one of the 10 prizewinners
in the New York publishing
houses' Best Book Contest for
1962, spent her childhood and
girlhood in the Canal Zone.
Her father, Chevalier A. M.
Monsanto was with the Pan-
ama- Canal Motor Transporta-
tion Division, where he was su-
pervisor when he retired in
.September 1954.
Mrs. Dean is a graduate of
the Canal Zone Junior College
;and spent four years as a re-
porter for the Panama Amer-
ican in Panama City. She later
was graduated from the State
UniversiLy of Iowa School of
Journalism. Her husband, H.
L. Dean, is Associate Professor
of Botany at the State Univer-
sity of Iowa and Mrs. Dean
operates her own portrait pho-
tography studio in, Iowa City.
"Once Is A Habit!" is a col-
lection of sketches that report
on the hazards of everyday
living and th(ir consequences.
Mrs. Dean recalls fishing in the
Pacific and devotes one chapter
to the consequences when a
pelican was hooked and she
endeavored to tame it as a pet.
She describes her father as
"a -rugged sort." He had to be,
she says, to h a v e survived
some of his experiences, such
as diving for pennies in the
harbor of Port-au-Prince and.
driving a motorcycle for exhi-
bition in a huge wooden bowl.
Mrs. Dean still has relatives
who reside in the Canal Zone
and has many Zone friends
from whom she heard,- she

El rmes de agosto tiene gran significado para dos de las mas
pintorezcas y bellas islas de las Antillas. Fue en este mes, hace
un afio, que Jamaica (donde reside mis del 50 por ciento de la
poblaci6n de las Antillas) y Trinidad, con la isla asociada de To-
bago, se convirtieron en las primeras naciones surgidas a la vida,
independiete en el hemisferio occidental en mas de medio siglo.
Jamaica, productora de bauxito y de bananas, y Trinidad, fa-
mosa por su calypso y productora de asfalto y con una rica in-
dustria petrolera, gozan ahora de un nuevo status international
como miembros de la Comunidad de Naciones BritAnicas. Como
naciones soberanas; propugnan par el bienestar de sus ciudada-
nos y contribuyen a la preservaci6n de sus derechos como hom-
bres libres.
Los gobiernos de estos pauses -se ocupan de inculcar en la
consciencia ciudadana el sentido de sus derechos, al igual que el
de sus responsabilidades. Esa area se facility enormemente por
el hecho de que los pueblos de las' Antillas, en t6rminos genera-
les, tienen un arraigado sentimiento del deber y gran capacidad
de trabajo. Esas caracteristicas, con el tiempo, contribuirAn a
hacer de las islas-naciones, centros de interns. Seg6n informa-
ci6n de esas islas, durante su primer afio de vida independiente
ya demuestran avances sociales y econ6micos inspiradores.
Su irrupci6n como naciones libres e independientes sin luchas
ni tensions, puede ser mejor descrita en las palabras de Sir Gar-
net Gordon, quien dijo, al referirse a ellas: "su amplia base de
educaci6n y servicios sociales, excelente carrera administrative,
experiencia en el qobierno democratic y un modo de vida que
constitute uno de los mejores ejemplos de arm6nicas relaciones
en colectividades que estan entrelazadas en varias direcciones
. por mixturas raciales y sociales, de intereses, pobreza, riqueza,
ignorancia y sabiduria".
Cabria citar la frase emitida hace un afio par el Ministro de
Fomento y Bienestar, de Jamaica, Edward Seaga, al expresar la
satisfacci6n sentida por esos pueblos antillanos: "La indepen-
dencia es como mudarse de una casa alquilada a una propia. La
propiedad del hogar conlleva un sentimiento de orgullo, de segu-
ridad y de la responsabilidad".
En este su primer aniversario de independencia, Jamaica y
Trinidad-Tobago, pueden sentirse seguras de los mejores votos de
Panama y de la Zona del Canal per su estabilidad y prosperi-
dad futures".
