50 Years of Service . To World Commerce

Friday, April 17, 1964

Forty-seven cayucos, with four
Explorer Scouts to each cayuco, are
being screened in readiness for the
1964 Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race
to be held April 25 and 26. Ocean
to ocean at the Isthmus of Panama
means "only" some 50 miles, but
the race is fraught with excitement
and adventure and each year draws
large crowds of spectators to cheer
the competing crews on their way.
The race is conducted by the
Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts of
America, as a Council activity and
each crew member must be an
Explorer in good standing from any
Post, Ship, or Squadron of the
Canal Zone Council.
SAll Pacific side participants in this
year's race are required to board the
train at the Balboa Railroad Station
with personal and racing gear at
3:10 p.m. Friday, April 24. They will
spend the night on the Atlantic side
and the ocean to ocean race will start
Saturday morning, April 25, at
8:30 a.m.
Layover at Gamboa
The first cayuco is expected to
arrive at Gatun at approximately
9:30 a.m. and at Gamboa approxi-
mately at 2:15 p.m. Saturday. The
cavucos will be beached and secured
for the night at Gamboa and a supper
and movie are planned for the
cayuco racers.

Hey, Kids, Look!

Special Matinees

Price Unchanged
When is a child over 12 still con-
sidered a child, movie ticket-wise?
During the special children's
*matinees on Saturdays, and special
summer and holiday vacation
matinees, that's when.
Charging the adult price for chil-
dren over 12 years of age, which
went into effect in the Canal Zone
theaters recently, does not apply to
the special matinees during the
summer vacation and during the
Christmas and Easter holidays, said
T. G. Relihan, general manager of
the Supply Division. He also pointed
out that all children and students
are admitted at the reduced price
to the special children's matinees on
Saturday in the Zone theaters.
At the regular motion picture pre-
sentations, children over? 12 years of
age are charged the adult price.

Going Someplace?
The following is a verbatim
report of a recent bureau staff
conference. Only the names are
changed to protect the innocent.
Colonel ABLE: When are you
going to Detroit?
Mr. BAKER: I think on the 6th.
Is it Detroit or Baltimore?
Colonel ABLE: I thought it was
Mr. CHARLEY: Henry told me
Mr. BAKER: The correspond-
ence says California.

will be resumed Sunday at 8:30 a.m.
and, judging by past years, the first
cayuco is expected to reach the
Dredging Division Landing at Pedro
Miguel at approximately 10 a.m. The
cayucos will transit and will proceed
toward the finish line at approxi-
mately 1 p.m. The finish line will be
an imaginary line extending from
Pier 2, Rodman Naval Station, to
a boat anchored 50 yards from the
end of Pier 2 out in the Canal.
Supper, followed by an awards
ceremony at the baseball stadium,
Rodman Naval Station, is planned
at 3:30 p.m.
Two Classes Competing
There will be two classes of crews
competing: Award Competing Crews
and Patch Crews. Each Award Com-
peting Crew, competing for first,
second, third, and fourth place, will
consist of no more nor less than four
members who meet qualification
requirements. The same four crew
members who start the race must
continue throughout to the finish
and compete on a unit basis.
Patch crews will be composed of
any number of qualified members
consistent with the size of the
cayucos and considered safe by the
race committee inspectors. Patch
crews may substitute members of
other crews who have participated
in the entire race up to the point of
substitution. Award Competing
Crews may make such substitutions,
but if they do, will be reclassified
as Patch Competing Crews.
A Cayuco Race Trophy will be
presented to the Award Competing
Crew placing first. Pennants will be
presented to the Award Competing
Crews placing first, second, third,
and fourth. Medals will be awarded
to individual members of Award
Competing crews placing first,
second, third, and fourth.

Team spirit: Cadet 1st Lt. Louis Austin, commander of the Cristobal High
School ROTC Drill Team, smiles at Diane Asbury, team sponsor, after
the team had been awarded the ROTC best drill team rotating trophy. The
trophy went to the Cristobal team for the second year in succession. Other
award winners at the annual ROTC Field Day held in Balboa are shown
from left to right: Cadet Capt. Kenneth Darlington, commander of winning
"B" Company of Balboa; Cadet 1st Lt. Robert Zack of Cristobal, leader of
the best platoon; Cadet Sgt. Joseph Fernandez of Cristobal, best individual
cadet and leader of winning squad; Cadet Staff Sgt. Jerry Worsham of
Balboa, leader of squad taking second place; Cadet Sgt. Randal Everson
of Balboa, second place as best individual cadet; and Cadet Staff Sgt.
Vaughan Taylor of Balboa, third place as best cadet.

7 Panama Canal Employees Get

Exemplary Service'Awards, Checks

Seven Panama Canal employees
were presented service awards, each
with a check for $150, by Lt. Gov.
David S. Parker, last week, but
to one of the employees present
active participation in the ceremony
came as a complete surprise.
Miss Annie F. McDade, secretary
to the chief of the Executive Plan-
ning Staff, came with stenographic
)ad and pencil, ready to take notes.
Instead, she found she was one of
the seven being honored.
Miss McDade was presented a

Former SS Panama To Be Put

On Hawaiian Islands Cruise Run

A new lease on life has been given
the former SS Panama.
She has been sold by the American
President Lines to the Hawaiian
Monarch Line, Ltd., and will cruise
between Hawaiian Islands as the
SS Queen Liliuokalani.
According to the New York Times,
the Panama, which has been oper-
ated since 1957 as the President
Hoover by the American President
Lines, was purchased by the newly
formed Hawaiian Monarch Line for
$800,000 and will undergo extensive
alterations before entering her new
The alterations will include a
change from her present capacity of
202 passengers in 65 staterooms to
80 cabins with accommodations for
160 passengers, all in outside state-
The renovation also will include
elimination of the present cargo
capacity of 7,255 tons of dry and
1,890 tons of refrigerated cargo
The Hawaiian Monarch Line is to
take possession of the ship on her
return to San Francisco April 23
following her last cruise to the
Far East as the President Hoover.
Refurbishing the ship at a Pacific

coast shipyard is scheduled to be
completed early in July, after which
she will be ready to begin her 7-day
circuit of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and
The Times story quoted Kenzie
S. Nicoll, executive vice president,
and James R. Cannon, vice president,
of the recently organized Hawaiian
Monarch Line as saying the recon-
verted vessel would not carry freight
or automobiles. The vessel would
operate as a cruise ship only and
would represent an investment of
$1.5 million.
When the former Panama was pur-
chased by the American President
Lines for $5.7 million in 1957, she
was refitted at a cost of close to
$500,000. The decision of the Pres-
ident Lines to retire the President
Hoover was due to her small pas-
senger capacity and her relatively
slow speed.
The ship was one of three sister
liners built in Quincy, Mass., for the
Panama Line in 1939. The Ancon
now operates as the Maine Maritime
Academy training ship State of
Maine and the Cristobal remains in
the service of the U.S. Government
on a run between New Orleans and
the Canal Zone.

Rules Outlined

On Refrigerated

Cargo Deliveries
Refrigerated cargo coming from
New Orleans under employees' rates
aboard the SS Cristobal, will be
accepted at New Orleans for delivery
only to Cristobal, effective with the
sailing of the SS Cristobal from New
Orleans on April 28, it was
announced by the Transportation and
Terminals Bureau.
Employees receiving this cargo
can start taking delivery within 1D
hours after the ship docks in Cris-
tobal, the announcement said. In no
case can delivery be made later than
noon of the day the ship docks. Since
the ship ordinarily docks at 7 a.m.,
this will permit delivery of the cargo
between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and
The ruling became necessary, it
was explained, because of the short-
age of refrigerated storage space and
the inability of the Panama Railroad
to guarantee refrigerated service for
such shipments because of the limited
number of refrigerated cars.
Any information regarding proce-
dure, changes in the'schedule of the
ship or delay in arrival time, may be
obtained by calling Peter Hotsko at
the Terminals Division in Cristobal,
telephone 3-1622.

Project Mission:

Hope and Health
Communication and understand-
ing between peoples is highly im-
portant in today's world.
Project HOPE has discovered that
one of this world's most precious
assets-medical knowledge-is by far
the best way to speak out to the
people of newly emerging nations
and that one of the most certain paths
to peace today lies in efforts which
enable people to help themselves.
This is the very basis and purpose
of Project HOPE: to bring the skills
and techniques developed by the
American medical profession to the
people of other nations in their own
environment, adapted specifically to
their needs and their way of life.
Symbol of this teaching-healing
project is the SS Hope, the world's
first peacetime hospital ship, a re-
converted 15,000-ton veteran of
World War II and the Korean
The SS Hope's most recent mission
brought her through the Panama
Canal southbound late in November,
headed for Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Her log of accomplishments for
the past 2 years in Indonesia, South
Viet Nam and Peru includes these
Over 2,000 medical and para-
medical personnel of these
countries have worked and
learned with our American
doctors and nurses.
4,500 patients have been treated
aboard the SS Hope.
Approximately 4,000 major
operations have been per-
Over 500,000 people on two
continents have benefited by
immunization and other
HOPE services.
And the free world has gained
countless friends who are now
healthier, happier and more
self-reliant individuals.
The SS Hope is now in Guayaquil,
bringing better health knowledge to
the people of another newly emerg-
ing nation. Here, as elsewhere, the
strongest Impact of HOPE's suc-
cesses is the grateful reaction of the
world's needy to those vital missions
and the generous Americans who
supported its program.

By Eleanor Burnham

Marooned, by Martin Caiden, is
a novel that does for space what
Eugene Burdick's and Harvey
Wheeler's Fail Safe did for push-
button war. Caiden is considered an
outstanding authority on aerospace
projects and in addition writes with
skill and style. This novel is about
an astronaut who is marooned in a
space capsule while in orbit with
only 43 hours of oxygen left. All
resources of both United States and
Russia are marshalled to attempt to
rescue the astronaut. Almost every-
one will agree that reading this book
is a nerve-wracking experience.
Deadly Image, by George Harmon
Cox, has all the ingredients of a first-
class mystery-beautiful socialites,
successful businessmen, blackmail,
scandal photographers, and show
girls. Nobody can do a better job of
mixing all these together and getting
a first rate mystery than George
Harmon Cox, who has been doing it
skillfully for years. He is a past
president of the Mystery Writers of
America and once more has lived up
to his reputation.
A Day in the Life of President
Kennedy is an hour-by-hour record
of a typical day in the White House
written by Jim Bishop, well-known
journalist and author. Bishop is
believed to be the last writer to work
with President Kennedy on an
exclusive story. It was written only
a week before the President's death.
It is a sympathetic picture of Ken-
nedy as a charming person and as
a world leader.
Up for Grabs is a Donald Lam-
Bertha Cool mystery by Erle Stanley
Gardner writing as A. A. Fair. This
case is about a whiplash injury and,
of course, it has the fine organiza-
tion, excellent dialogue and authentic
legal treatment for which all of Erie
Stanley Gardner's who-dun-its are
famous. His many fans will find that
his work is as good as ever.
The Genesee is a distinguished
addition to the Rivers of America
series. Henry Clune, the author,
traces the dramatic and historically
exciting story of the Genesee, which
is familiarly called the "Little River
of the Senecas." The Genesee cuts
through New York State from the
Pennsylvania line to Lake Ontario
near Rochester. The book is illus-
trated with line drawings by Douglas

Gorsline and includes a map of the
area by Rafael Palacios. It has a good
index which makes it useful for
checking historical data as well as
for casual reading.
Your Puppy and How to Train
Him is a revised and enlarged edition
of a wonderful book by H. V.
Beamish, who is internationally
recognized in the dog world. In this
book the author has thrown new
light on things to consider in choos-
ing your puppy, and on points to be
observed in starting him out so that
people other than his owner will
entertain a kindly feeling for him.
Since, according to the License
Section of the Civil Affairs Bureau,
there are about 2,000 registered dogs
in the Canal Zone, this book should
interest quite a lot of people.

To save yourself trouble, don't
borrow any.

New York World's Fair Opening;

150 Major Exhibit Buildings

The World's Fair in New York
opening April 22 will be the 32d
S such extravaganza in history and is
expected to break all records for the
number of exhibits and attendance.
Nearly 1,000 persons from the Canal
Zone have purchased tickets at a
reduced rate on a block purchase
basis and hundreds of others are
expected to attend.
The theme of the fair is "Peace
Through Understanding."
For the anticipated millions of
visitors, some 150 major exhibit
buildings have been constructed for
major U.S. corporations, the U.S.
Government, and many of the 50
States. More than 40 foreign govern-
ments or groups, religious, and other
organizations also have prepared
The first truly international exposi-
tion was held in London in 1851.
A total of 13,939 exhibits were laid
out on 26 acres and drew 6 million
Only 2 years later the World's
Fair idea hit the United States. This
initial attempt at fair producing in
the States, promoted by New York

Tribune Editor Horace Greeley, was
about a big a flop as could have been
imagined: Slightly over a million
people passed through the gates and
red ink showed a deficit of $300,000.
The 100th anniversary of the
founding of Philadelphia was the
basis for the second World's Fair in
America. Financially, it too was a
failure, but the likes of its exhibits
startled the world. Exhibits from 35
nations, including Bell's telephone,
George Westinghouse's railroad air
brake, Edison's telegraph, the type-
writer and the sewing machine also
were put on display for the first time.
After Chicago, Buffalo and St.
Louis had tried their hands at fair
producing on a large scale, San
Francisco, with World War I raging
in Europe, put together 80,000
exhibits for more than 13 million
visitors. This 1915 World's Fair,
known as the Panama-Pacific Inter-
national Exposition, came through
with a profit of $2.5 million. Named
"Jewel City," the fair commemorated
the opening of the Panama Canal the
previous year and also noted the
rebuilding of San Francisco after the

fire of 1906. Exhibits included a
working model of the Canal and
airplane rides with Lincoln Beechey
and Art Smith, the Lindberghs of
their day.
After Philadelphia had honored
itself on its 150th birthday, Chicago
put together a few exhibits for its
100th birthday. As a matter of fact,
39 million people surged through the
gates during 1933-34, bulging the
producers, pockets by $700,000.
With a theme "Century of Progress,"
visitors saw a transparent man show-
ing all the organs lit up, uniform
lighting, and air conditioning.
Five years later New York City
decided to prove to itself and to
the world that its pitiful escapade
of '53 was just an accident. A "World
of Tomorrow" setting was spread out
over 1,216.5 acres, honoring the
150th anniversary of the inaugura-
tion of George Washington. More
than 60 nations participated, the only
notable absence being that of Hitler's
Germany. War broke out during the
fair and the pallor of war found its
way to the fair. Two detectives were
killed in a bomb explosion outside
the British Pavilion. Despite the fact
that 45 million interested spectators
looked at 100,000 exhibits, New
York City kept its defeated string
alive by losing $19 million.
Twenty-two years passed before
the loss was forgotten and another
World's Fair put on at home: Seattle
in 1962. Now New York wants a
third try. If things go according to
the past, the fair should draw about
100 million persons and lose almost
$40 million.
Oh, but. will it be funl

otherwise, would have to make a
considerable outlay of funds to outfit
their youngsters for school. The

book is plated with a bright pink
card that reads, "Canal Zone Library
and Gray Ladies of the American
Red Cross have brought this book
to you. We hope you will enjoy it."
The plates are in English and
Many books and magazines are
donated by private individuals who
read Greek, French, German, Italian,
and Swedish. Others are given to the
library by the embassies, which
receive foreign language magazines
Several thousand books are in
circulation and practically every
weekday one of the Book Cart Gray
Ladies visits the bedsides of all
patients filling requests for a book
or a magazine in the language of
the patient. The 75 active Gray
Ladies also keep busy with recrea-
tion in the wards and supervision of
the lounges. Part of the American
Red Cross Gray Ladies' pledge is that
she agrees to serve all patients,
regardless of race, color, or creed.
At Gorgas Hospital the Gray Lady
serves the world!

W. Doan, Gorgas Hospital super-
intendent, and Mrs. Edward Doolan,
wife of the Panama Canal Personnel
Bureau Director, who was chairman
of the Volunteer Services for the
Canal Zone Chapter of the American
Red Cross. Mrs. Doolan asked the
cooperation of Mrs. Eleanor Burn-
ham, Canal Zone Librarian, who for
some time had been anxious to
inaugurate this book cart service.

Whereas President Lyndon B. Johnson has proclaimed the month of
April 1964 as Cancer Control Month, and
Whereas residents of the Canal Zone share the determination of people
throughout the United States and the entire world to continue the fight
against this dread disease, and
Whereas the progress made by science offers definite hope that the
burden of this scourge will one day ba lifted from mankind, and
Whereas this hope can be realized only through continued research and
energetic health programs,
Now, Therefore, I, ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr., Governor of the Canal Zone,
do hereby proclaim the month of April 1964 as Cancer Control Month and *
call upon all citizens to unite during the appointed month in public
reaffirmation of the efforts to control cancer.
In Testimony Whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the
seal of the Canal Zone to be affixed at Balboa Heights, Canal Zone,
this 9th day of April, 1964.

Al cabo de 2 aiios solamente, la
idea de la Feria Mundial cal6 en los
Estados Unidos. Este intent initial
de una feria en los Estados Unidos,
organizada por Horace Greeley,
editor del New York Tribune, result
tan sonado fracaso como pueda uno
imaginarse: un poco mas de 1 mill6n
de personas pasaron por las puertas
y se registry un deficit de $300,000.
El centenario de la fundaci6n de
Filadelfia sirvi6 de base para la se-
gunda Feria Mundial en America.

fracaso, pero la calidad de sus expo-
siciones asombr6 al mundo. Exposi-

DespuBs de que Filadelfia conme-
mor6 el 1509 aniversario de su fun-
daci6n, Chicago mont6 su gran Expo-
sici6n del Centenario, en 1933-34,
la cual atrajo a 39 millones de visi-
tantes y produjo $700,000 a sus orga-
nizadores; titulada "Centenario del
Progreso," esa exposici6n expuso un
ser transparent" cuyos 6rganos
vitales podian verse a trav6s. Tam-

bi6n introdujo la luz uniform y el
aire acondicionado.
Cinco afios mAs tarde Nueva York
asombraba al mundo con su feria
"El Mundo del Mafiana" que cubri6
un area de 1215 acres y medio. En
esa ocasi6n se conmemor6 el 1509
aniversario de la investidura de
George Washington. MAs de 60
naciones participaron en esa feria,
con la notable ausencia de la Alema-
nia hitleriana. Al romperse las beli-
gerancias en Europa un palio turbio
ensombreci6 la atr6sfera. Dos pes-
quisas murieron en explosions frente
al pabell6n britAnico. Las p6rdidas
ascendieron a $19 millones, a pesar
de que mAs de 45 millones de per-
sonas visitaron las 100,000 instala-
Pasaron 22 afios antes de que se
montase otra Feria Mundial en el
pais, la de Seattle en 1962. Y ahora
Nueva York quiere probar su suerte
por tercera vez. Los pesimistas cal-
culan una p6rdida de unos $40
millones, a pesar de que se esperan
mas de 100 millones de visitantes a
la Feria de Nueva York.

El antiguo vapor Panamd conti-
nuara a flote y active. Sus dias de
servicio se han prolongado al ser
vendido por sus armadores la Ameri-
can President Lines a la Hawaiian
Monarch Line, Limitada, que lo pon-
dra en servicio entire las islas del
archipi6lago hawaiano.
No solo eso, sino que hasta un
nuevo y regio nombre le sera dado,
el Reina Liliuokalani.
Conforme a nota aparecida en el
New York Times, el ex Panamd, que
ha estado navegando bajo el pend6n
de la American President Lines bajo
el nombre de President Hoover desde
1957, fue adquirido por la nueva
empresa naviera, Hawaiian Monarch
Line, por la suma de $800,000. Antes
de dedicarlo a sus nuevas rutas, el
barco sera renovado, haci6ndosele
extensas alteraciones.
Entre las mejoras esta el acondi-
cionamiento necesario para alterar

dCuantos clavos de herradura
dan una tonelada? Las estadisti-
cas no lo dicen, pero reciente-
mente de escandinavia vino un
barco cargado con 17 toneladas
de clavos para herraduras y ya
pueden figurarse las herraduras
que podran clavarse con 17
toneladas de clavosl
La nave Astrid Bakke Ilevaba
abordo esa curiosa carga consis-
tente en 14 toneladas de clavos
procedentes de Suecia y 3 de
Dinamarca, destinados asi: 10
toneladas para Colombia, 4 para
el Peru, y 3 para Chile.

su capacidad de 202 pasajeros en 65
camarotes, que es su capacidad
actual, se acondicionaran 80 cama-
rotes exteriores para 160 pasajeros
que viajarian en todo comfort.
La renovaci6n tambi6n comprende
la eliminaci6n de su present capa-
cidad de 7,255 toneladas de carga
seca y 1,890 de carga refrigerada.
Los nuevos armadores tomaran
posesi6n de la nave a su regreso a
San Francisco el 23 de abril despues
de completar su iltimo viaje de cru-
cero por el Lejano Oriente bajo el
nombre de President Hoover.
El reacondicionamiento se reali-
zarA en astilleros de la costa del Paci-
fico y se espera que est6 terminado
a principios de julio. Seguidamente
iniciarA sus cruceros de 7 dias por
las Islas de Oahu, Kanai, Maui y
La nota del Times cita a los sefio-
res Kenzie S. Nicoll y James R.
Cannon, vicepresidentes de la reci6n
organizada line hawaiana, diciendo
que la nave no llevara carga ni auto-
m6viles, operando linicamente como
crucero y que la inversi6n montarA
a mill6n y medio de d6lares.
ANTES COSTO $5,700,000
Cuando el Panamd fue adquirido
por la American President Lines
pagaron por 61 $5.7 millones, gas-
tando medio mill6n mas en reacon-
dicionarlo. La decision de retirarlo
se debi6 a su poca capacidad para
pasajeros y su reducida velocidad.
La nave era una de tres id6nticas,
construidas en Quincy, Massachus-
setts, para la Panama Line en 1939.
El Anc6n es operado ahora por la
Academia Maritima de Maine como
buque-escuela y el Crist6bal todavia
presta servicio bajo el Gobierno
Federal entire la Zona del Canal y
Nueva Orleans.
