On Bump-free Roundtrip To States/


Capt. and Mrs. James Joe
Adams of Albrook Air Force
Base found the ideal way of
travelling the Inter-American
Highway route and avoiding
the rough spots. They flew, in
their own Cessna-170.
Capt. Adams, who is a mem-
ber of the Canal Zone Civil Air
Club, w it h headquarters at
France Field, and Mrs. Adams,
who teaches in Grade 5 at the

Los Rios Elementary School,
were accompanied by their son,
Randy, 6.
Their four-place plane only
carries gas-for' about 300 miles,
but even so they made the re-
turn trip from Mexico to the
Canal Zone in three days. They
stopped overnight at Veracrus,
in Salvador and in Costa Rica.
En route to the States they
spent one night in Managua,

Nicaragua, and three days in
Guatemala City. Acapulco and
Mexico City were each visited
for three days. In the United
States they visited in Texas,
Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma,
Iowa, and Michigan.
No incidents marred the trip,
and the cost, they report, is '.
less than the commercial cost
for the same trip.
Capt. Adams is in charge of
the base motor pool at Albrook.

Starting In September

HONORED NEWSMEN Pictures of Crede Calhoun, left, Pan-
ama Canal retiree and former New York Times correspondent on
the Isthmus, and Alberto V. McGeachy, right, editor emeritus of
the Star & Herald, will be among those displayed at Columbia
University November 6 in connection with the 25th anniversary
of the Maria Moors Cabot Awards. Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Mc-
Geachy both have received the award, which is given annually
by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism for
excellence in handling news stories on Latin America. Jules
Dubois, onetime reporter on the Star & Herald and now Latin
American correspondent of the Chicago Tribune, also is amoog
those who have received the award.

' The with-holding of Panama
income taxes from the compen-
sation of those employees of U.
S. Government agencies in the
Canal Zone who are subject to
such taxes will-be- started next
The agreement does not af-
fect U. S, citizens employed in
the Canal Zone or members of
the U. S. Armed Forces.
Under terms of an executive
agreement made through an
exchange of notes between the
U. S. Embassy and the Pan-
ama Ministry of Foreign Rela-
tions, the with-holding will start
with respect to compensation
paid on or after September 1.
The agreement provides, for-
withholding of Panama taxes in
accordance with the established
tax rate for workers in the Re-
public and prohibits any discri-
minatory taxation of C a n a 1
Zone employees.
Nothing in the agreement is
to be construed as consent by
the United States for,imposition
of withholding of any tax of the
Republic of P a h a m a upon
members of the Armed Forces
of the United States; citizens
of the United States, including
those who have dual nationali-o
ty;.--and other individuals who
are not citizens of the Republic
of Panama and who reside
within the Canal Zone.

cified in the preceding para-
graph are the same as those
specified in the 1955 Treaty df

holding program, C a n.a 1 of-

Instructions on how indi-
viduals will be required to
proceed in order to establish
such exemption will be dis-
tributed within a few days, of-
ficials said. Those wishing to
claim such exemption should
await the receipt of such ins-
tructions before proceeding. Of-
ficials did note, however, that
documentation of the claim of
non-Panamanian, citizenship will
be required.for exemption.
Approximately 10,000 em-
ployees of the Panama Canal
are expected to be affected by
implementation of the plan.
Officials. of the Canal warned
that .withholding of the taxes
does not eliminate the neces-
sity for those employees subject
to such taxation to file income
tax returns with the Republic
of Panama. Such returns still
will have to be filed and any
deficiency in taxes due will
have to be paid or any over-
payment of taxes claimed for

ROTC LEADERSHIP SCHOOL Some of the 116 Balboa High School ROTC cadets who today are
completing leadership 'raining at the school are shown during one of the drill sessions held during
the final two weeks of the school. A graduation ceremony for the cadets enrolled in the course,
which started July 29, will be held at 10:30 a.m. today in the high school auditorium. S. E. Esser,
Superintendent of Schools, will present certificates to the cadets. Guest speaker for the ceremonies
will be Rolando Linares of the Canal Zone Guide Service, a former cadet officer in the Balboa
High School ROTC. Mr. Linares took his basic infantry training at Fort Dix, N. J., in a company
commanded by the present Canal Zone Professor of Military Science, Maj. E. M. Quigley, Jr.


Housekeeping is work under the best of cir-
cumstances. When small children cut up paper dolls
and leave the mess scattered about, Mother or the
maid must clean it up. When thoughtless adults
scatter the Sunday papers around the living room,
or simply pitch their dirty clothes in the general
direction of the clothes hamper, cleanup work na-
turally follows.
Outdoors, nature has a way of cleaning things
up but nature's way often is slow. Papers scat-
tered in the wind, debris tossed along the roadside,
bottles and cans left at picnic grounds eventually
will disappear through the processes of nature -
but the joint's a mess in the meantime, and it may
be a long meantime.
What's all this philosophizing about? Simply
this: Many of the outdoor areas of the Canal Zone
offer scenic beauty and pleasant sites for picnics and
other outings, but they must be kept clean if the.
next person, and the next, and the next, are to enjoy
them to the fullest.
It so happens, however, that the thoughtless;
the lazy, and those who can only be described as
vandals frequently destroy that which was put there
for their enjoyment and pleasure. Toilet facilities
are damaged, grounds are littered, and further
enjoyable use of the area is impossible until someone
has cleaned up the mess and restored order.
Your cooperation is needed to keep the Canal
Zone neat and orderly. You will help, won't you? A.
I. (Slim) Bauman, Superintendent of the Grounds
Branch, and, the man responsible for cleaning up the
disorder, hopes you will, community leaders fre-
quiently have voiced their hope that you will, there's
a law against littering in the Zone, and... But need
we say more?

Veterans Preference

In Federal Service

Since the time of the Civil
War, veterans of the armed
forces traditionally have been
given s o m e degree of pref-
erence in appointments to Go-
vernment jobs.
Veteran preference in its pre-
sent form was provided by
Congress, principally in the
Veterans' Preference Act of
1944. Recognizing that an eco-
nomic loss is suffered by those
who serve their country in the
armed forces, Congress enact-
ed the law as a means of pre-
venting veterans seeking Fede-
ral employment from b e i n g
penalized because they were
isolated from the civilian world

during the months o
they spent in service.

The Group Insurance Board
has announced that U. S. citi-
zens .employed by the Panama
SCanal now,have an opportunity
to -improve their life insurance
coverage at low cost.

The additional e o v e rge,
which is not part of the Federal
Employees Group Life Insur-
ance plan, is patterned after it
in both amount of coverage
provided and cost. The amount
of insurance available to each
employee under the supple-
mental plan is determined by
the applicant's income and the
cost is 25 cents for each $1,000
of insurance, the same as it is
for FEGLI.
Application cards have been
distributed to all eligible em-
ployees. Any who wish to in-
crease t hei r life insurance
coverage under the plan, for
which the underwriter is United
of Omaha, should return the
application card promptly. The
insurance representative of
each employee's unit can
provide additional information,
or it can be obtained by calling
the Employee Services Branch
at Balboa 2508 or 2661.-

August 16, 1963


MRS. PAULINE KAPLAN, first woman manager of a Pan-
ama Canal Service Center, has managed the Coco Solo Service
Center since 1958.
She is of Austrian-American descent and was born in Panama
City. -She attended schools in the Canal Zone and Panama and
was a student at the Canal Zone College.
Her father, Aaron Metiner, had been in Panama with the
United Fruit Co. before she was- born. He bought a plantation in
Boquete and for many years was one of the few Americans in
the area. He worked with the U.S. Army and Navy in the Canal
Zone and retired here.
Mrs. Kaplan began work with the Panama Canal in 1942, but
her service is broken. She returned to the United States in 1953,
and came back to the Isthmus in 1955. For a few years she was
with the IBM section of the Office of the Comptroller at Balboa
Her employment with the Supply and Community Service
Bureau started on the Pacific Side. She was supervisor at the
Diablo Service Center, and then at Balboa.
Her husband, Jack, was employed by the.Firestone-firm, and
with him she went to Africa, where for 18 months they lived in
Liberia, West Africa. Mr. Kaplan now is with the Motor Trans-
portation 'Division -and Mrs. Kaplan, who relieved in practically
every service center on the Pacific side, was transferred to Mar-
garita-and then her present position at Coco Solo.

Panama Canal Master Diver William Bodders, who built, design-
ed and set sup the curriculum at the .Gatun Diving School, and
who is retiring from- Carial 'service in the near future, is shown
above with Burton Powell (right) who is to be the new head of
the diving school.
Mr. Powell, who came to the ` an a ma Canal last April
from Washington, D. C., is a retired U. S. Navy master diver.
He retired as Chief Petty Officer, U. S. Navy last October and
was a former instructor and'senior master diver at the Experi-
mental Diving Unit, Naval Weapons, Plant, Washington, D. C.
His wife arrived onr the SS Cristobal June 29 to join him here.
Their 17-year-old daughter, Susan, is a student at Baylor Univer-
sity, Waco, Texas.
Retirement, for Master Diver Badders, doesn't mean a rocking
chair-on-a-porch routine.- From here, Mr. and Mrs. Badders will
go to Annapolis, which is Mrs. Badders' home and where Mr.
Badders will be connected -with the Athletic Association at the
U.S. Naval Academy. ..
Their son, Albert William, is an Eastern Airlines pilot. Their
daughter, Beverly Marie's husband is connected with the missile
program at Cape Canaveral.

Balboa Teacher

Pictured, Quoted

In Times' Story
"If it had been any worse, it
would have killed me," Miss Ce-
cilia Dawson, a teacher at Balboa
High School, commented in res-
ponse to a compliment on her
"tremendous" pole-vaulting form
during a recent workout as part
,of Columbia University's course
in track and field for teachers.
Despite her skepticism, Miss
Dawson "understands the prin-
ciples," according to Columbia
Prof. Lawrence E. Locke. "She
did 6 feet 10," Professor Locke
told a New York Times reporter.
"You might say that was a re-
cord, since women don't compete
officially in the pole vault." (The
world record is 16 feet, 1014
inches, set August 5 by John Pen-
nel of Miami.)
The New York Times story and
illustrations included one of Miss
Dawson clearinig the bar during
the pole-vault session. It ap-
peared jn the isge of August -9

La familiar del capitan James Joe Adams, de la Base
Area de Albrook, puede ufanarse de haber volado por la
carretera interamericana cubriendo en 3 dias el recorrido
desde el Istmo hasta los Estados Unidos.
El capitin es miembro del .A6reo Club Civil de la Zona
del Canal con sede en France Field, y su esposa es maestra
de quinto grado en la escuela primaria de Los Rios; el otro
viajero era su hijo Randy, de 6 arios de edad.
Los Adams se detuvieron en Managua, Nicaragua, si-
guiendo luego a Guatemala y de alli a Acapulco y la ciu-
dad de M6xico.
Durante su permanencia en los Estados Unidos, visi-
taron los Estados de Tejas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma,
Iowa y Michigan sin haber tenido el menor percance en to-
do el viaje, ni siquiera un revent6n de Ilanta ni los tropiezos
usuales en una carretera a6n inconclusa.
Ah!... Sf, se nos olvidaba! Los Adams volaron sobre la
carretera interamericana en un Cessna-170, tanto a la-ida
cuanto a la vuelta. ,



AMii bajo circunstancias ideales, los quehaceres
dom6sticos resultan penosos. Las criaturas, que re-
cortan figures de diaries y revistas, y dejan todo ti-
rado luego en el piso para que la madre, o la em-
pleada, lo recojan. Los mayores, que sin la menor
consideraci6n, echan al suelo los diaries y- las pren-
das de vestir al mudarse de ropa, creando adiciona-
les molestias con su desalino.
Al aire libre usualmente la naturaleza se encar-
ga de hacer la limpieza, pero sus m6todos resultan
lerdos. Papeles echados al viento; desperdicios lan-
zados al borde del camino; botellas y latas vacias
abandonadas despubs de la .merienda campestre; to-
do eso puedd dandole tiempo al tiempo desa-
parecer pero, mientras tanto, constitute un muladar
que puede durar demasiado.
IQue qu6 nos traemos? Pues, sencillamente es-
to: existen muchas areas de recreo y panoramicas
para romerias y paseos en la Zona del Canal, pero
tienen que ser constantemente aseadas despues de
cada-visitante descuidado con los residues o desper-
dicios que dejan tirados por doquier. A mAs de eso,
hay quienes se comportan en forma que podria ser
calificada de vandAlica, destruyendo aquello que ha
sido colocado alli para comodidad general.
Los servicios higienicos son deliberadamen da-
fiados; los sitios de recreo o descanso se cubren de
basura y se ejecutan otros actos anti-higienicos que
obligan a terceras personas a cometer la labor de
limpieza y restablecer las comodidades estropeadas.
La cooperaci6n de todos es requerida para man-
tener el aseo y limpieza en la Zona del Canal y asi
lo pide el Superintendente del Ramo de Manteni-
miento de Predios, senior A. I. (Slim) Bauman, la
persona sobre quien recae la responsabilidad de re-
establecer el orden de limpieza allf donde fue alte-
rado por insensatos o irresponsables.
Existe una ley contra el tirar basura en la Zona
y... pero no creemos que sea necesarlo insistir.

RECUERDE siempre 6sto: no le coniviene correr riesgos con
la electricidad. Cualquier descuido en las practices de seguridad
no solamente le pondra en peligro, sino que harA que otros corran
riesgos. He aqui unas cuantas recomendaciones importantes de
seguridad. Cons6rvelas en su mente.
1- Haga un habito el tratar como vivos todos los circuitos, aun-
que used sepa que estan muertos.
2-.Use las herramientas y equipo de protecci6n adecuados, tales
como alicates con mangos de material aislante, guantes de
goma, papacetes de material -aislador, etcetera.
3- Antes de comenzar a trabajar en motors o circuitos desco-
necte la corriente y fije al interrupter la palanca del mismo,
mediante un candado, para evitar que alguien cierre el cir-
cuito mientras usted estd trabajando.
4- Nunca cierre un circuit sin antes asegurarse de que no hay
nadie trabajando en el mismo.
5- Nunca use un fusible mAs fuerte que la capacidad del circui-
to, ni sustituya un fusible por una conexi6n direct o puente.
6- Siempre que usted terminal una nueva instalaci6n o trabajo
de reparaci6n, hAgase la siguiente pregunta: "%He hecho el
trabajo seguro para otros?",
7- Aprenda a administrar la respiraci6n artificial. Puede per-
mitirle salvar una vida. -

Sin embargo, el apoderado de
