A wreath is placed on the late President Kennedy's grave at Arlington
National Cemetery by Adolfo Quelquejeu, Jr., Panamanian engineer, on
behalf of the Panamanian employees of the Panama Canal organization.
The employees had solicited contributions for that purpose some time ago
and Quelquejeu was designated to place the wreath on the grave. He is
now working on his master's degree in civil engineering at the University

Assistant S&CS Bureau Director

Leaving After 24 Years' Service

R. O. Theriault, assistant director
in the Supply and Community Serv-
ice Bureau, who is retiring from
Panama Canal service after 24 years
with the organization, began his
Canal employment as a clerk-general
August 17, 1940. Only 9 years later,
he was administrative assistant.
Theriault, who was born in Haver-
hill, Mass., had widespread, interest-
ing and valuable experience in a
series of positions in New England
before he came to the Isthmus.
From 1920 to 1924 he was at
Georgetown University, where he
studied economics and business
administration and received his bach-
elor of arts degree. For the next 4
years he was assistant general man-
ager at the Witherell & Dobbins
Corp. shoe factory where he initially
controlled production costs and sub-
sequently managed the personnel
He was a partner in McAuliffe &
Theriault Co., a mechanical refrigera-
tion sales and service organization,

where his specialty again was per-

when he went to work for himself

Insurance Co. as a general insurance

Augusta, Ga. IGD tourney tickets,
priced at $1, are available from any
military policeman and at Canal
Zone golf clubs on weekends.
Locally, 25 percent of each dollar
collected helps defray IGD expenses

Vessel Built for Panama Line

In '39 Now Making Final Voyage

A well-known passenger liner,
built for the Panama Line, may be
nearing the end of a 25-year career
in war and peace.
The vessel is the 10,603-ton Pres-
ident Hoover of the American Pres-
ident Lines. A New York Times story
recently quoted a spokesman for the
steamship line as saying that the
493-foot ship will be "retired" when
she completes a 42-day Pacific
voyage on April 23. She sailed from
San Francisco March 13 on her final
voyage under the American President
house flag.
Three Sister Liners
The President Hoover, completed
in April 1939, was one of three sister
liners built in Quincy, Mass., by
Bethlehem Steel Co. for the Panama
The New York Times story noted
that before the vessels could estab-
lish a foothold on the weekly New

York-Cristobal run, World War II
broke out and they were sent on
military assignments.
The Hoover, then the Panama,
became the James Parker when she
was taken over by the Army Trans-
portation Service in June 1941. By
1946 the vessel had steamed more
than 300,000 miles with troops,
supplies and war brides between
U.S. ports and points in Europe,
Africa and Australia.
"Civilian" Again
She returned to civilian duty for
the Panama Line and in 1957 was
acquired by American President
Lines for $5.7 million to be refitted
at a cost of close to $500,000 as a
passenger vessel with accommoda-
tions for 206 one-class travelers for
the trans-Pacific run.
The decision to retire the Pres-
ident Ioover, it was explained, was
prompted primarily by her small

passenger capacity and her relatively
slow speed. She steams at 172 knots
compared with 19 knots for her
running mates, the Presidents Cleve-
land, Wilson, and Roosevelt. These
vessels can carry 684 passengers
Placed on Market?
The immediate fate of the Pres-
ident Hoover is not known but in-
formed sources said she had been
placed on the second-hand ship
With withdrawal of the liner, only
one of the sister ships-the Cristobal,
will remain in the merchant service,
still operated by the Government-
owned Panama Line between New
Orleans and the Canal Zone.
The Ancon, the third of the
three vessels, now the State of Maine,
is the Maine Maritime Academy
training ship.

Zone Agencies Cooperate in Appeal

Of Health Agencies, Joint Crusade

Local military headquarters and
the Panama Canal organization set
March 23 through April 30 as the
period during which the two will
cooperate with the National Health
Agencies and the Joint Crusade in
conducting their fund-raising pro-
gram in the Canal Zone this year.
On-the-job cash solicitation of funds
for qualified health and international
voluntary agencies may be con-
ducted within the various organiza-
tions, installations, and communities
during this period.
There will be no consolidated
campaign organization formed by
any fund drive. As in the past each
military service and the Panama
Canal organization will cooperate on
an individual basis in such matters
as literature distribution and collec-
tion of voluntary cash contributions
made bv their personnel. No dollar
goal will be established for any
agency or for the entire group.
A qualified agency is defined in
the U.S. Federal Government direc-
tives as "a chapter or affiliate of a

Run Me a River is a novel of the
American frontier by Janice Holt
Giles which will warm the hearts of
her many devoted readers. This story
follows the adventures of a young
steamboatman in his boat, the
Rambler, on Kentucky's Green River
in 1861. Mrs. Giles lives with her
husband near Bowling Green, Ky.,
on the river where the Rambler's
voyage starts. Before writing this
story she made the trip on a river
boat herself.
The Loser, by Borden Deal, is a
novel about state politics in which
a struggling young lawyer agrees to
run for high office-and agrees to
lose. This is a long and complicated
novel-full of the excitement and
drama of a political battle. One of
Deal's novels, Dunbar's Cove was
made into a motion picture under
the name Wild River.
The Affair of Chief Strongheart,
by Patrick O'Malley, is the fourth
novel featuring those famous counter-
espionage agents, Harrigan and
Hoeffler. This time their efforts are
directed toward solving an informa-
tion leak near a missile base in the
West. O'Malley has been called the

The Kaiser, by Virginia Cowles,
celebrates the 50th anniversary of
the beginning of World War I. It is
a highly readable biography of
Wilhelm II, whose tragic and at times
semi-comic career resulted in the end
of an era. This biography, based on
memoirs and documents, shows
penetrating insight into the incon-
gruities of the Kaiser's career and
clarifies the effect that his life had
on the course of history. Mrs. Cowles
has written other excellent biogra-
phies, including Winston Churchill,
Gay Monarch, and The Phantom
One Fat Englishman, by Kingsley
Amis, has been called a "supremely
entertaining comedy of bad man-
ners." Thehero of the tale is the
awful Roger Micheldene, an English
publisher loose in the United States.
His snobbery, rudeness and petulant
intellectualism are offset at least in
part by the author's fine presenta-
tion of a certain human quality which
makes us sympathize with this diffi-
cult Englishman despite ourselves.
This is a funny and touching book.

Police Lieut. Ralph E. Masters,
who is retiring from Panama Canal
service this month after 21 years, 10
months, and 17 days with the organ-

Zone in September 1940 on a United
Fruit cruise ship. He visited his

watchmen received regular training
and schooling, much like the police
todav. When vacancies occurred in
the police department, the top senior
watchmen were considered for the
positions that were open. The fol-
lowing March he was a member of
the local police force. He was first
stationed in Cristobal, and in 1942
was transferred to Balboa.
In 1944 he entered military service
in the Air Force. This actually was
his second tour of duty, for just
before coming to the Isthmus he
finished a tour of duty with the U.S.
Army. In the Air Force he served
with the Air Transport Command
and travelled the far corners of the
earth from South America to Mon-
rovia, West Africa, and Tunisia. He
was acting master sergeant, Chief of
Communications, in 1946 when he
received an honorable discharge and
returned to the Canal Zone Police

Study course diplomas from the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society
were presented Canal Zone members, above, who spent approximately
216 hours of class study during a period of 3 years. Governor Fleming and
Col. M. C. Harrison, director of the Engineering and Construction Bureau,
commended each student during the presentation of the diplomas. From
left, back row, are Ellis J. Lowe, Clois C. Duffie, John D. Mitchusson, and
George O. Tarflinger; front row, Carl R. Meissner, Willard E. Percy,
instructor, and Clarence L. Dimmick. Theodore P. McGann was not present
for the photograph. All the above are with the Panama Canal Maintenance
Division with the exception of Willard Percy, of the Industrial Training
Branch, and Theodore McGann, who is with Rodman Naval Station.

He was stationed in Cristobal for
a few years and from 1949 until his
retirement was at the Canal Zone
Penitentiary, Gamboa.
Lieutenant Masters will leave on
the SS Cristobal April 5 for the
States. He plans to return to his birth-
place, Erwin, Tenn., and will go
back to Milligan (Tennessee) Col-

It takes a lot of "savvy" to build
an 8-inch wooden racing car out of a
block of wood and then have it win
the annual Pinewood Derby.
It also may take some help from
Dad-but whatever the requirements,
Cub Scout Gary Schiebe, has them.
He brought his handmade racing
car zooming into first place during
the recent races held by Cub Scout
Pack No. 12 of Catun in the Atlantic
Locks Association building. Gary,
the son of Mr. and Mrs. George
Schiebe of Gatun, has been a near-
winner before. His car placed third in
the 1963 race.
Second place in the 1964 derby
was taken by Jimmy Kunkel, son of
MIr. and Mrs. Paul Kunkel and third
slot by Mike Wood, son of Mr. and
Mrs. L. D. Wood. Welty Y. Comp-

from kits supplied by the Boy Scout
organization. They included a block
of wood, some wheels and other
gear which turn out a fine racing
car if the Cub and his father are
clever with their hands. The final
results are matched in competition
each year in the Pinewood Derby.
To be sure that it is the skill of
the manufacturer and not sewing
machine oil or other artificial assists,
the model entries are given a
thorough inspection prior to the race
by a team of judges made up of Boy
Scout executives and prominent
residents of Gatun. This is only a
gesture, of course. Everyone knows
that a Boy Scout--or a Cub-does
not cheat.

SS Cristobal Cabins

Get New "Cool" Look

Cool, good-looking Choctaw green
tile is gradually replacing carpeting
in the cabins of the SS Cristobal. The
vinyl asphalt tile is marbleized, with
a bit of white in it.
The Panama Canal Maintenance
Division is doing the work. The car-
peting, as it wears out, is replaced
with the tiles which are easier to
clean and cooler.
About five rooms on the SS Cris-
tobal, so far, have acquired the new
"cool" look.

years, retired from Panama Canal as a "boy" on the Isthmian Canal
service this month.
Mr. and Mrs. Ellis left the Isthmus
for South Carolina and then plan to
visit for a time on the west coast. \
Prior to their departure, Mr. Ellis '"
was presented a gold watch, the "-
traditional retirement gift from the
Dredging Division Watch Fund, at ,
a Dredging Division supervisors '
meeting. He had been with the
Dredging Division since 1940 and
his total Canal service added up to
26 years, 8 months, 29 days.
He was born in Savannah, Ga.,
and came to the Isthmus in 1905

Coaches' Selections Put 5 Bulldogs

On All-Zone Baseball Dream Team'

Balboa High School dominated
half of the 1964 All-Zone baseball
team, Schools Division officials re-
vealed early this week. The All-Zone
team is selected each year by the
In addition to the five Bulldogs,
three Canal Zone College players
and two Cristobal High School boys
also were named.
Selected as the outstanding first
baseman in the league was BHS's
Gene Hermanny, a senior. A smooth
left-handed swinger, Gene hit .250
and played a sparkling defensive
game. It was his first All-Zone
The second base nod went to
Dave Cohen of CZC. Dave hit .273
while batting in the number three
spot for the Green Devils. He had
one of the finest fielding averages in
the league. It also is his first time on
the All-Zone team.
For the second straight year
Luther Quinn was chosen at third
base. Only a junior at BHS, Quinn
hit .394, had eight RBI's and hit
three home runs.
The shortstop position went to
Stew Brown of BHS. A steady man
in the clutch, Stew, a junior, hit
.276. This was his first All-Zone
Outfielders named were Jeff Leon,
Dick Ebdon and Dave Wilder. Leon,
a sophomore at CZC, hit .303 and
is one of the finest fielders and
hustlers in the league. He was also
named to the All-Zone team last
year. BHS's Ebdon hit .360 in 1964.
His first time on the team, Balboa's
speedy center fielder swiped seven
bases and is an excellent hit-and-run
man. Wilder, a student at CHS, was
unofficially the league's top hitter,
batting over .400. Wilder's fine arm
in the outfield and his speed on the
bases were a big assist for CHS this
year. Wilder also made the team last
The top catcher of the year was
CZC's George Hovan. Not a power-
ful hitter, George kept opposing
runners on their toes with a fine
throwing arm and good defensive
play. He has not been on the All-Zone
team before.

Last team listed is home team.

As is the custom, two pitchers
are named to the team each year.
Greg Hakanson, lanky CHS right-
hander, was named as one pitcher.
Greg mixed up a fine fastball with
a good curve to win most of CHS's
1964 victories, while picking up his
first All-Zone selection.
The other pitcher named to the
team was Jim Riley, a unanimous
choice for the second straight year.
In 1964 Riley had a 6-0 record on
the mound for the Bulldogs, hurling
one no-hitter and two one-hitters.
In 39 innings, Riley struck out 75,
gave up only 9 hits and allowed
a mere 5 runs, 3 of which were
'arned. He posted a fantastic 0.54
earned run average.
Two utility men, Charles Mc-
Fadden (CZC) and Vic Alers
(BHS) also were chosen to the team.

David W. Ellis.

Commission's payroll. His pay? Five
cents an hour.
His early Panama Canal service
was broken. From 1915 to 1916 he
worked as a messenger at Sosa Hill
quarry. Then, for a short time, he
worked as a "boy" in the Municipal
Engineering Division. From 1917 to
1920 he worked firing a boiler on
the Panama Railroad ships that
traveled those days between Cristobal
and New York.
He was in U.S. military service
from 1920 to 1924.
Mr. Ellis was employed intermit-
tently by the Isthmian Canal Com-
mission, the Panama Railroad Com-
pany, and the Panama Canal from
June 11, 1913, to March 30, 1935,
and was continuously employed by
the Panama Canal since January 4,
1939. In August 1940 he transferred
to the Dredging Division where, at
retirement, he was operator of the
craneboat Atlas.

Balboa High School's ace lefty, Jim
Riley, who posted a 6-0 record this
year in his final season as a Bulldog,
last week received an offer from the
Pittsburgh Pirates to attend their
spring training camp in Fort Meyers,
Fla., for about a week.
The offer came through Abdiel
Flynn, an active member of the Pan-
ama Professional League and a
stringer scout for the Pirates. Flynn
apparently had contacted Howie
Haak, superintendent of scouts for
the Pirates organization in Latin
America, about Riley.
Riley, a 6 foot 1 inch, 175-pound
southpaw, said Flynn called him
and made a proposal from the Pirates.
The Pittsburgh offer was to play for
the Bucs for 2 years right out of high
school and then go to college when
he is 20.
Riley, however, proposed that
Pittsburgh give him a large enough
bonus so that he can go to college
on it, promising to play for the
Pirates upon completion of his formal

At the time the offer was made,
Jim Senior was on leave in Arkansas.
In addition to the Pirates offer,
young Riley has been asked by Flynn
to play in the Panama Pro League
next year. It also is reported that five
other major league offers will come
to Riley upon graduation from high
school in June. Among the teams
named as interested in the speedy
left hander are the Baltimore Orioles,
the Houston Colts, the Kansas City
Athletics and the Chicago White Sox.
Riley pitched for Balboa High
School for 3 years. During that time
he compiled a record of 12-3. He has
won 11 straight games since his
sophomore year. He has pitched
98-1/3 innings, struck out 148,
walked 43, given up 40 hits and 18
runs, only 8 of them earned. His
earned run average is 0.57. Last year
Riley closed out the season with a
no-hitter. This year he opened the
season with a no-hitter and also has
thrown two one-hitters this year. The
amiable lefty, also an outstanding
golfer, is a sure bet for Pitcher of the
Year honors. He was named this
week as one of the two pitchers on
the All-Zone baseball team.
Another Zonian, Ed Napoleon,
already is a member of the Pirate
organization. A 1955 graduate of
Balboa High School, Napoleon plays
for the Pirate farm club in Asheville,
S.C. Napoleon was scheduled to
leave yesterday for the Pirates' minor
league spring training camp in
Daytona Beach, Fla.


Assistant S&CS
(Continued from page 1)
Theriault was appointed a super-
visor for the Classification and
Assignment Division of the Federal
Emergency Relief Administration
and in 1936 also was chief statistician
for a U.S. Department of Labor
survey on consumer purchasing.
He returned to personnel work
again for the Corps of Engineers,
which was then working on a seawall
project in Haverhill, Mass., and, after
most of the hiring had been done
he returned to another specialty-cost
control of the actual construction
project. Immediately before coming
to the Isthmus, he was senior assess-
ing clerk with responsibility for
checking the accuracy of accounting
practices and procedures.
Theriault transferred to the Com-
munity Services Bureau on Octo-
ber 17, 1954. He was promoted to
assistant to the Supply and Em-
ployee Services Director on Novem-
ber 18, 1956, and first acted as
Supply and Employee Services Di-
rector in April 1957 by order of the
late Wilson Crook, then Supply and
Community Services Director.
His next promotion was to assistant
to the Supply and Community Serv-
ice Director in July 1957 and on
January 19, 1959 was named Assist-
ant to the Director, Supply and Em-
ployee Service. Since April 1959 he
has held the position of Assistant
Director (Administrative Officer).
Mr. and Mrs. Theriault will leave
the Isthmus April 5 on board the
SS Cristobal and plan to make their
future home in Savannah, Ga. They
are the parents of two sons, Raoul
N. Theriault and Neyle C. Theriault,
both in the United States.

Institute Americano-Coreano y el
Proyecto HOPE, entire otras.
No se ha fijado meta alguna, ni
cuota que deba de ser cubierta por
quienes desearen aportar su 6bolo,
pero no existe la menor duda de que
la cifra de $7,306.58, alcanzada el
afio pasado en la colecta entire em-
pleados del Canal de PanamA y el
Gobierno de la Zona del Canal, serA
superada este aio.

Cuando tales liquidos asi empaca-

nal, todas las precauciones debidas
son observadas: ventilaci6n forzada,
cAmaras de rociamiento y aparatos
Pero la creciente comercializaci6n
de estos rociadores en muchos casos
permit que manos inexpertas mane-

ora en el hogar, ora en Areas de tra-

cuenta las precauciones debidas.

contienen aguarrAs, disolventes, pig-

t6xicos si se absorben por la piel o

luego las indicaciones alli sefialadas.
Conviene siempre atenerse a las
siguientes medidas de precauci6n:
1. Realice el trabajo a ex puertas,
colocAndose al abrigo del viento y
no rocie nada sin estar seguro de
que la brisa lo alejara de si.
2. Abst6ngase de fumar mientras
estA rociando. No utilice utensilios
que den calor o produzcan chispas.

Reportaje Sobre la

Carcel de Gam0boa

Interesante reportage sobre la
Penitenciaria de Gamboa hizo la
semana pasada el comentarista
panamefio Luis Carlos Monte-
rrosa, de la emisora Radio Unidn,
de la ciudad de Panamd.
Monterrosa, quien acudid en la
maiiana del jueves 19 de marzo
a la Penitenciaria en uni6n del
Sr. Victor Canel, Ayudante al
Jefe de Informaci6n del Canal de
Panamd, y de Tomds A. Cupas,
Redactor en espaiol de la Seccidn
de Prensa, hizo una grabaci6n en
cinta magnetofonica de su repor-
taje, que tuvo una duracidn de
1 hora y 15 minutes, el cual fue
transmitido por la Radio Uni6n el
mismo di a alas 12:15 del dia,
4 p.m. y 9 p.m.
El comentarista Monterrosa
qued6 muy impresionado por el
estado de limpieza y el sistema
penal, que incluye classes impar-
tidas por maestros de escuela a los
reclusos que no saben leer y
escribir, ademds de los oficios que
alli se aprenden.

Con Todo Fervor Observase

La Semana Santa en Panama

Millares de ciudadanos abandonan esta semana las ciudades terminales
y encaminan sus pasos hacia apacibles rincones del Interior en el ya tradi-
cional 6xodo annual de la ciudad hacia el campo que se produce durante
la Semana Santa.
Pueblos y ciudades de la campifia se ven subitamente atestados de visi-
tantes que Ilenan sus hotels y pensions, invaden sus calls, colman a
capacidad sus restoranes y fondas, se desparraman sobre playas y praderas,
entire el biullicio ensordecedor de miles de voices alzadas al unisono.

La Patrulla de Caminos-unidad
reci6n puesta en servicio por la Guar-
dia Nacional de PanamA-labora in-
cansablemente para que el conges-
tionamiento vehicular en la Carre-
tera Interamericana no produzca es-
tancamiento por espacio mAs largo
del absolutamente inevitable.
"Toda media de precauci6n ha
sido adoptada y esta siendo puesta
mn prActica para salvaguardar la vida
de los turistas que viajan hacia el
Interior," dijo vocero autorizado.
La devoci6n del pueblo queda una
vez mls puesta en evidencia con la
enorme asistencia a los oficios reli-
giosos que se vienen celebrando en
todos los temples del Istmo en con-
memoraci6n de la Vida, Pasi6n y
Muerte de Nuestro Sefior Jesucristo.
Las procesiones tradicionales de
Los Santos, Pes6 y otras poblaciones
del Interior, donde personajes bibli-
cos son representados por series vi-
vientes, atraen millares de devotos y
curiosos, Avidos de presenciar las
tipicas ceremonies en las que todo
un pueblo rinde pleitesia a su Crea-
dor y le renueva su amor y devoci6n.
Especial recogimiento se registrar
en este dia en el cual el Hijo de Dios,
hecho hombre, es sometido a los mAs
dolorosos martirios que culminan en

su Via Crucis hacia el Monte Calvario
donde El permit ser crucificado
para redimir los pecados del mundo.
Ecce Homo, Dios y Redentor, con-
mueve las fibras mAs nobles e intimas
del hombre, a trav6s de las Edades,
por la eternidad de los siglos, por
Su infinite amor que lo llev6 hasta
ofrendar Su Sagrada Vida en areas
de la humanidad.
Doblan todas las campanas de un
canto al otro del estrecho Istmo; su
repicar, estremece los aires donde
tropiezan sus ecos; su metAlico sonido
golpea contra el coraz6n de los devo-
tos en Chepigana, como en La Cho-
rrera; en ArraijAn, en PenonomB; en
Santiago de los Caballeros como en
Alanje y Cerro Punta.
Los fieles Iloran ligrimas de re-
mordimiento que van lavando sus
pecados y purificando su espiritu,

Gloria de Dios, reunido con Su Padre

y el Espiritu Santo en la Divina
Trinidad que forman el Dios.
En todos los pueblos las muche-
dumbres circulan por las calls, de
Iglesia en Iglesia, en cristiana pere-
grinaci6n, buscAndose los unos a los
otros o marchando de manos dadas,
con recogimiento y unci6n.
El dia es de jiubilo explosive y con-
tagioso en el Istmo. La alegria irra-
dia de todos los semblantes y es como
una caricia colectiva, como un entre-
mezclarse de felices sentimientos,
compartidos e iguales; un converger
de emociones; un rezo, colectivo e
individual a la par, que aflora a los
labios, casi en canto, como para
ascender a los cielos con mayor
impetu y prontitud.
Cristo resurrecto mora en el cora-
z6n de los hombres y todos se sienten
invadidos de un divino fervor que
los impulsa a transitar por los sen-
deros floridos de las emociones gratas
que brotan al sentirse unidos, unos
Sa otros, en cristiana hermandad.

Lanzador Zurdo de los Bulldogs

Recibe Oferta
El as zurdo Jim Riley, de la Flynn le
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa, quien juegue en
logr6 una marca de 6 victorias sin
derrotas este afio en su temporada
final como Bulldog, recibi6 la semana
pasada una oferta de los Piratas de
Pittsburgh para asistir a su campo de
entrenamiento primaveral en Fort
Myers, Florida, durante una semana.
La oferta vino a trav6s de Abdiel
Flynn, un miembro active de la Liga
Professional de Beisbol de Panama
y buscador de talent para los Piratas.
Flynn aparentemente hizo contact
con Howie Haak, supervisor de
scouts para la organizaci6n de los
Piratas en la Am6rica Latina, sobre
el serpentinero Riley. ., ,
Riley, de 6 pies 1 pulgada y 175 '.9;'
libras de peso, dijo que Flynn lo
dam6 y le hizo la oferta de los Pira-;
tas. La oferta del Pittsburgh era para
jugar para los Bucaneros por dos afios
al salir de la escuela y luego ir a la
universidad cuando cumpla 20 afios.
Sin embargo, Riley propuso que
los Piratas le dieran una buena boni-
ficaci6n lo suficiente para costear sus
studios universitarios, prometiendo ,:.
jugar para el Pittsburgh apenas ter- .
mine su educaci6n.
Los Piratas ofrecieron pagar los
gastos completes tanto para Jim
como apra su padre, James W. Riley,
empleado en la oficina de tel6fonos
en el Edificio Administrativo en
Balboa Heights. Al hacerse la oferta,
el padre de Jim estaba de vacaciones
en Arkansas.
Ademas de la oferta de los Piratas,

de los Piratas

ha pedido a Riley que
la Liga Profesional de


Jim Riley

Panama el pr6ximo afio. Se ha infor-
mado tambi6n que cinco otras ofertas
de grandes ligas le haran a Riley
despuos de su graduaci6n de escuela
secundaria en junio. Entre los equi-
pos sefialados como interesados en el
rApido serpentinero zurdo estan los
Orioles de Baltimore, los Colts de
Houston, los Atleticos de Kansas City
y los Medias Blancas de Chicago.
Riley lanz6 para la Escuela Secun-
daria de Balboa durante tres afios.
Durante ese tiempo compil6 una
marca de 12 victorias y 3 derrotas.
El ha ganado 11 juegos consecutivos
desde su segundo afio. Ha lanzado
98 entradas y un tercio, ponchado a
148, boleado a 43, permitido 40 hits
y 18 carreras, solamente 8 de ellas
merecidas. Su promedio en efectivi-
dad es de 0.57. El afio pasado Riley
termin6 la temporada con un juego
sin hits. Este afio abri6 la temporada
con un juego sin incogibles y tam-
bien ha lanzado dos juegos de un hit
este afio. El afable zurdo, que es
tambien un destacado golfista, es una
apuesta segura como uno de los dos
lanzadores en el equipo de estrellas
de beisbol de la Zona del Canal.
Otro zoneita, Eddie Napoleon, es
miembro ya de la organizaci6n de los
Piratas. Graduado en 1955 en la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Balboa, Napo-
leon juega para el club sucursal de los
Piratas en Ashville, Carolina del Sur.
Napoleon tenia que viajar ayer para
el campo de entrenamiento de ligas
menores de los Piratas en Daytona
Beach, Florida.
