Up to Date...

And Recorded?
If you are going abroad this
summer, be vaccinated now against
smallpox no matter where you are
going, and against yellow fever and
cholera if you will be traveling in
countries where those diseases are
This advice comes from Col.
Robert J. Kamish, Health Bureau
Director, who also urges that those
affected have their vaccinations
recorded on an International Cer-
tificates of Vaccination document
that can be presented to public
health officials abroad or on return
to the United States.
"To be valid for international
travel," Colonel Kamish said, "vacci-
nation certificates must be validated
with the stamp of your local health
department or with some other stamp
approved by the Public Health
"Also, be sure that your immuniza-
tions against tetanus, diphtheria,
and poliomyelitis are up to date.
"Immunization against typhoid
and paratyphoid fevers is recom-
mended for most foreign travel. In
the event of an outbreak of inflenza,
typhus, or plague, vaccination is
"Remember," Colonel Kamish
concluded, "that travel abroad in-
cluding travel in the tropics-can be
perfectly healthful and pleasant. The
precautions recommended by the
Public Health Service will help to
make it so."

Line Throwing

Finals Saturday
Carlos Mel6ndez of Pedro Miguel
Locks, 1963 Panama Canal line
throwing champion, will defend his
* title Saturday at 10 a.m. in the
ninth annual line throwing contest to
be held at Gatun Locks.
The contestants, the most agile of
the line handlers from the three
Canal locks, were chosen last week
in elimination contests. The partici-
pants this year will be: Pedro Miguel
Locks: Carlos Mel6ndez, first; Mel-
hado Smith, second; and Felix
Walker, alternate. Miraflores Locks:
Sotero Ortega, first; Juan Garz6n,
second; Guillermo L6pez, alternate.
Gatun Locks: Leopoldo Anderson,
first; Octavio Johnson, second; and
Vincente Renwick, alternate.

50 Years of Service . To World Commerce

Cayuco racers make a fast break out of the locks as the gates open and they're on their way again, after a
welcome rest while they're being locked through. This scene, from last year's race, will be duplicated Sunday as
the crews paddle from ocean to ocean.

Malicious Damage, Neglect, False Emergency Calls

May Result in Occupants Being Billed for Work Done

A management survey of the Main-
tenance Work Branch has shown that
malicious damage and neglect of
Panama Canal quarters by occupants
is a frequent occurrence, requiring
the Maintenance Division to make
extensive repairs that otherwise
would not be necessary.
This is not a new development,
but it is necessary to remind occu-
pants concerning the necessity of
avoiding damage or unnecessary
expense in quarters because of care-
less housekeeping or indifference.
When a request for housing mainte-
nance follows negligence, careless-
ness, or malicious damage by the
housing occupant, or occupants the
cost of the repairs is to be billed to
the occupant. The same applies when
an occupant transfers or vacates
Panama Canal quarters, as a rule,
are completely cleaned and more
often than not are painted prior to
occupancy. The Housing Branch, not
unreasonably, expects the quarters
to be in clean and undamaged con-
dition when an occupant moves.
In the new modern quarters, the
cabinets and formica-topped counters

require particular care, for when the
formica top is damaged the repair
work is expensive and, moreover, the
formica is difficult to match. A hot
skillet or pan, moved from stove to
the formica-topped counter, can burn
a hole right through the formica, the
housing officials report.
Unnecessary holes in masonry
walls, damage to tiled floors, and
unauthorized alterations are listed
among the items causing damage to

Outrigging Removed

From Dredge So It

Can Transit Locks
A recent visitor to the Mount Hope
Industrial Division ship repair facility
was the National Bulk Carriers self-
propelled Dredge Sea Lane, flying
the Liberian flag.
It was necessary for the Industrial
Division to remove outboard append-
ages peculiar to the Sea Lane before
the vessel could transit the locks.
This vessel is unique in that it can
dredge channel'bottoms at 40 to 45
foot depths and cast 6,000 cubic
yards per hour of the dredged mate-
rial 250 feet from its starboard side
through twin 25-inch diameter dis-
charge pipes. All this is accomplished
while the vessel is under way.
The pipes are mounted in a boom
cradle which can be arranged per-
pendicular to the vessel's side for
casting purposes. When not in use,
the boom can be stowed, by swinging
it aft about a fixed pivot point, so it
lies along the vessel's starboard side.
Her nearest American counterpart
is the Corps of Engineers Hopper
Dredge Hains, owned and operated
by the U.S. Army Engineer District,
Detroit. It is the first American
dredge equipped with a side casting
arrangement, and it can cast material
100 feet over-the-side while on-the-

quarters. Sharp heels, carelessly
placed furniture, and furniture with
sharp points do the greatest damage
to tile. It will be necessary that occu-
pants consider the probable repairs
if they cause such damage.
Flower beds can cause damage to
property, unless special care is taken
in the garden plan. The damage
occurs when flower beds are built
up a bit higher than the ground floor
level of the house. When the plants
are soaked with water, the water
seeps through the concrete blocks
and subsequently, loosens the tile.
The Housing Branch officials espe-
cially have been asking that flower
beds do not go above the ground
floor level of the house. Shrubbery
growing against the building leads
to rot and termite infestation.
Improperly installed or operated
air conditioners do their share in

"Longest Day"

Coming Up for

Cayuco Racers

The longest day of their lives is
ahead of some 176 Explorer Scouts
who will start paddling early Satur-
day morning in the 1964 Ocean-to-
Ocean Cayuco Race, and for the first
time in Explorer Scout history will
paddle 32 miles through the Panama
Canal from Cristobal to Gamboa in
1 day.
Besides paddling a longer distance
than usual for the annual cayuco
races, the Explorer Scouts may be
facing interference from winds that
have been blowing briskly from the
In past years, the ocean-to-ocean
cavuco racers have taken off from
Cristobal for Gatun on a Friday, the
race schedule covering 3 days. This
year, because of lost school days
in January, the schools did not
authorize releasing the boys from
classes on Friday. Therefore, the
3-day race is telescoped into 2 days.
The race, part of the Explorer
program of the Canal Zone Council,
Boy Scouts of America, will start
Saturday morning, April 25, at
approximately 8 a.m. from Cristobal.
The first cayuco is expected to arrive
at Gatun at approximately 9:30 a.m.
and at Gamboa at approximately
2:15 p.m. Saturday. The cayucos will
be beached and secured for the night
at Gamboa, and a supper and movie
are planned for the cayuco racers.
The race will be resumed Sunday
at 8:30 a.m. and will end at the
Rodman Naval Station, Pier 2, at
approximately 2:30 p.m.
Time will be taken on each lap
of the race. The four boats with the
shortest elapsed time for all laps
will receive awards. The winning
boat will receive the rotating trophy
from the American Legion Post
No. 1. The young lady sponsor for
the winning unit will be crowned
Queen of the 1964 Cayuco Race.
All participants who complete the
course will receive the coveted
cayuco race patch.
The awards ceremony will be held
at Rodman Naval Station Stadium
Sunday afternoon, following the

Are Stressed for May Observance

With 200 to 300 Panama Canal Stressing the reality of these con-
employees joining the senior citizens tributions in the construction, main-
roster annually via retirement, Senior tenance, operation, and improvement
Citizens Month in May is an oppor- of the Canal, Governor Fleming has
tunity to recognize the contributions called attention to the Senior Citizens
of dedicated personnel for many Month proclamation by President
years. Lyndon B. Johnson.

Text of the proclamation:
WHEREAS the number of Americans aged sixty-five and over comprise
a segment of our population which is growing at an accelerating rate as the
miracles of modern medicine contribute to increased life expectancy; and
WHEREAS, since not everyone is blessed with the gift of long life, those
who are so endowed should occupy a place of special honor among us; and
WHEREAS our country, although more blessed with abundance than
any other, cannot afford to be wasteful of its resources if it is to achieve
its fullest potential; and
WHEREAS the Federal Government is deeply and constantly concerned
with the well-being of all its citizens; and
WHEREAS this Nation can and should offer leadership and assistance
to the States, municipalities, and voluntary organizations in their efforts
to extend special recognition to and make continuing maximum use of the
skills of our senior citizens:
United States of America, do hereby designate the month of May 1964
as Senior Citizens Month, and I urge all public and private organizations
and all citizens to make the theme of this special month-Opportunities for
Older Americans-become a living reality. Let us repay our older Americans
for their sustained creative participation in our national and community
life by providing them with a wide range of meaningful opportunities.
Let us take all necessary steps to see that they have a real chance to enjoy
health, love, and a life of dignity. Let us find ways to employ the skill and
wisdom that so many of our older Americans possess and long to share.
Let us make this month outstanding in our continuing effort to keep in the
mainstream of our national life all those who have lived so long and
contributed so generously.
I also invite the Governors of the States, the Governor of the Common-
wealth of Puerto Rico, the Commissioners of the District of Columbia,
and appropriate officials in other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the
United States to join in the observance of Senior Citizens Month.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused
the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.

Korean Veterans' Comeback Saga:

Help for Triumph Over Handicaps

One way to make sure your con-
tributed dollar does the job you want
it to do, is to be in a position to know
what the needs are and the best way
to fill them. This is why American
civilians, Armed Forces men, and
even agencies and civilians in Korea
use the American-Korean Founda-
tion as a channel for their dollars.
The AKF has been on the spot in
Korea for over 11 years and not only
knows where the needs lie but also
has the means and techniques of
getting these needs most adequately
A good example of how American
dollars are put to work by the AKF
is the Paraplegic Veterans' Village,
near downtown Seoul. Here, about
72 wounded Korean veterans live, all
but 15 of whom are wheelchair
Until about a year ago, like many
handicapped in Korea, these veterans
were indeed forgotten men, living
out their lives as best they could,
with no meaning, no purpose-and
no future.
But that situation changed with
the arrival of Mrs. Annabelle Breake-
field, wife of Brig. Gen. Durward E.
Breakefield, who bought a few simple
hand tools and taught the men how
to use them. But the project was
more than she alone could handle,
and help was needed.
The American-Korean Foundation
investigated and decided that few
projects matched this for humanitar-
ianism, self-sacrifice, and resource-
fulness. A grant was provided for
orthopedic equipment and an occu-
pational therapist as well as for hand
and power tools, a carpenter-instruc-
tor and a crafts instructor, so that
the men could, to some extent, regain

the use of their limbs through care-
fully graduated work schedules and
also learn a trade.
In addition, the Foundation
granted funds to build an earth block
workshop and gave them some live-
stock with technical instruction in
their care as a means of income to
the center and additional vocational
training for the men. Scrap lumber
was donated by the Armed Forces
Assistance to Korea and delivered
by the AKF for use in the manu-
facture of handmade items.
Today, these veterans are pro-
ducing and selling beautiful objects
from craft patterns provided by the
American-Korean Foundation.
The determination of these men
to triumph over their handicaps and
frustrations, coupled with help from
civilians, the Armed Forces, and the
American-Korean Foundation, is
proof of the worthiness of person-
to-person help for the people of
Korea. Every dollar you give goes
far in Korea, especially if you give
to the American-Korean Foundation
through your Federal Service Joint

The Music, Tantalizing; Orderlies

Quickened Their Pace and Pranced

(Are the efforts of those who
entertain patients in hospitals
really appreciated? The following
was written by a patient at Gorgas
Hospital. Judge for yourself.)
"The Red Cross is giving a show
at two today," my nurse told me.
"What kind?"
"Oh, singing and girls."
"Well, if there are girls, I may
go," dubiously.
Now I'm glad I did go. A delight-
ful concert by a mixed chorus from
Illinois University, seven girl students
and seven men, including the direc-
tor. Their voices were fresh and well
One voice was outstanding, not
because the singer sang loudly, but
because of the special quality that
Negroes' and only Negroes' voices
have. His voice was baritone, warm
and mellow, and he sang happily.
The audience: patients in wheel-
chairs, on wheeled stretchers, with
crutches and canes, and afoot. Amer-
icans were a minority. A youth,
Indian, possibly Choco or Guaymi,
sat beside me. He was using crutches,
and learning to use an artificial leg.

To Help You Estimate '64 Tax

U.S. taxpayers in the Canal Zone who are faced with the task of
estimating their tax for 1964 may find the 1964 tax rate schedules below
of assistance.
As a special service to SPILLWAY readers, the schedules for the taxable
year beginning in 1964 are given here for heads of households,
individuals, married taxpayers filing joint returns, and certain widows
and widowers.

Mrs. E. C. Dudley, former chairman of the Staff Aides of Fort Kobbe,
receives a service certificate from Judge Charles A. Garcia, chairman of
the Canal Zone Chapter of the American Red Cross. The presentation took
place at the Red Cross Chapter house in Ancon. During the past year,
Mrs. Dudley has served more than 100 hours with the Red Cross as a
Staff Aide.

Malicious Damage
(Continued from p. 1)
property damage, for the drip from
such air conditioners damages walls
and roofs. Excessive cold causes
condensation affecting paint, and
mildew conditions become serious.
In housing where screened doors
are used, property damage is often
done by children who lean against
the screens, pushing them out.
Then there have been instances
where an occupant found himself
locked out and proceeded to break
the screen and lock in order to get
into the house.
In some vacated quarters, addi-
tional work is required because of
excessive grime, trash, and accumu-
lated dust the occupant had made
no effort to remove. Some occupants,
the Housing Branch officials report,
never clean behind the stove. Soap
and dirt in steel cabinets cause rust
to form, and water deposits cause
rot, which ordinary good house-
keeping care could have averted.
If occupants of Panama Canal
quarters took care of their apart-
ments as if they owned the house,
many of the repairs now being done
would not be required, the Housing
officials stated.
When is an emergency call for
housing maintenance not an emer-
In order to prevent costly and
unnecessary incidence of emergency
calls, the Community Service Divi-
sion has defined emergency calls in
the three following categories:
a. When the situation is one which
will result in immediate damage to
b. When the situation constitutes
a hazard to safety, health or sanita-
c. When an essential utility facil-
ity is inoperable and no substitute
is available.
Maintenance calls in all categories
other than those listed above will be
processed as soon as possible. But-
when emergency overtime calls are
answered and work is accomplished
at the request of the occupant with-
out coming within one of the
categories listed, the occupant will
be billed for the work.
For instance, the Community
Service Division officials point out,
a complete sink stoppage or a toilet
overflowing would be considered an
emergency. But a dripping faucet,
while annoying, or a slightly leaky
roof where no great damage is being
done, are not classified as warranting
an emergency call and will be
repaired by the Maintenance Work
Branch as soon as possible after
being reported.

Speakers Bureau Being Organized; Margarita Family
Day Set May 16
Vn fna TUn anvivfquinst Iv inR irnn

A Speakers Bureau, to provide
information and entertainment for
civic and fraternal groups throughout
the Canal Zone, is being organized,
according to the Panama Canal
Information Office.
Several speakers have been listed
and will be available to deliver talks
before these groups and at special
events. The need for the bureau is
the desire by Zone residents to know
"what the other fellow is doing."
Often, Canal Zone residents are
aware of their own official surround-
ings, but not familiar with the work-
ings and vital aspects of other
departments and agencies.
The bureau will operate by fur-
nishing top speakers to deliver talks
to civic and fraternal groups at the
meetings of these groups. Talks will
be built, though not necessarily,
around the area of responsibility and

Science Exhibit

Monday, Tuesday

Gamboa Elementary School's
science exhibit will be held Monday
and Tuesday, April 27 and 28.
Exhibits will be arranged in indi-
vidual classrooms and pupils will be
available as guides for the parents.
The theme for this year's exhibit is
"Why Science?"
The science exhibit of the first
and second grades will be held
Monday and Tuesday from 2:30 to
4 p.m.
Grades 3 through 6 will hold their
science exhibits Monday and Tues-
day from 3 to 4 p.m.

W. R. (Bob) Byrd of Margarita is
the Atlantic side coordinator and
Capt. Furman D. Saunders is Pacific
side coordinator.
George Vieto is chief timer. J. W.

boats, and Dr. Herman F. Burkwall
is in charge of the health and safety
Welty Y. Compton, Scout Execu-
tive, and Council Commissioner
Wesley H. Townsend are the

interest of the speaker. The talks will
be designed for interest, brevity and
humor. Subject matter might range
from orchid cultivation to "How
I Pilot a Ship Through the Canal."
It is hoped that the long term
result of this bureau might be a
better understanding by many of
their own place in the Canal organ-
ization and an appreciation of the
importance of the work of others
as it relates to them.
Any organization interested in
acquiring a speaker, or anyone inter-
ested in delivering talks, may contact
the Information Office, which will
set up files on the project. A request
for a speaker would then be handled
through the Information Office,
which would set up the appointment
and notify both parties. Interested
persons may call 1880 for further

Regata Anual de Cayucos




El dia mis largo de sus j6venes
existencias se perfila para unos 176
Explorat-ores mafiana al romper el
alba. El dia mas largo, si, pero quizzas
result tambi6n el mis lleno de aven-
turas y emociones que dejarAn en
sus mentes un recuerdo imperece-
dero. Porque los muchachos acome-
terAn la sensacional empresa de
cruzar el estrecho Istmo de Panama,
de oc6ano a oceano, abordo de frA-
giles cayucos en la regata Anual de
1964, que los llevarA a trav6s del
Canal de PanamA-desde Crist6bal
hasta Gamboa-impulsados anica-
mente por sus propios canaletes, cu-
briendo el recorrido de 32 millas
en un solo dia.
AdemAs de remar esa prolongada
distancia los Exploradores tendrAn
que v6rselas con los vigorosos vien-
tos del noroeste que vienen soplando
en estos dias.

Durante las pasadas regatas de
cayucos los participants iban de
Crist6bal a Gatdn el dia viernes,
inicial de la regata, que levaba 3
dias en cubrir las respectivas etapas.
Este afio, empero, las autoridades
escolares no concedieron libre el
viernes y ello ha motivado que se
tenga que completar el recorrido
interoceAnico en solo 2 dias.
La regata, que se realize bajo los
auspicios del Capitulo de la Zona
del Canal de los Boy Scouts de Am6-
rica, se iniciarA mafiana desde Cris-
t6bal a eso de las 8 de la mafiana.
El primer cayuco se espera que
llegue a Gatu'n como a las 9:30 de
la mafiana y a Gamboa a eso de las
2:15 de la tarde. Los cayucos se
encallarAn en tierra y los remeros
pernoctarin alli, donde se les ofre-
cerA una cena y una funci6n de cine.
La regata se pondrA en movi-

miento nuevamente el domingo a las
8:30 de la mafiana, para terminar
en el Muelle 2 de la Base Naval de
Rodman, como a las 2:30 de la
Se tomarA a cada cayuco, indivi-
dualmente, el tiempo que lleve en
cubrir cada etapa y el que realice
todas en el menor tiempo acumulado,
serA declarado el vencedor. Los tres
subsiguientes tambi6n recibiran pre-
mios. Al vencedor se le entregarA el
Trofeo Rotativo de la Legi6n Ame-
ricana, Post No. 1.
La Madrina del equipo vencedor
serA coronada Reina de la Regata de
Cayucos, 1964.
Las tripulaciones que complete
la distancia total recibirAn el codi-
ciado distintivo del caso.
La entrega de premios se llevarA
a cabo en el Estadio de la Base Naval
de Rodman el domingo en la tarde.

El moment es oportuno para reconocer la valiosa contribuci6n por
muchos afios prestada por los 200 o 300 funcionarios del Canal de
PanamA que anualmente se jubilan, yendo a engrosar las huestes de
los meritorios ciudadanos retirados; y decimos eso debido a que
mediante Proclamaci6n Presidencial se consagra el mes de Mayo,
como el Mes del Ciudadano de Edad Venerable.
Haciendo hincapi6 en lo valioso de esa contribuci6n a la cons-
trucci6n, mantenimiento, operaci6n y mejora del Canal, el Gobernador
Robert J. Fleming, Jr., ha Ilamado la atenci6n hacia la proclamaci6n
hecha por el Presidente Lyndon B. Johnson que se refiere en part
al hecho de que los avances registrados por la ciencia m6dica han
prolongado la vida humana, al punto que considerable sector de la
poblaci6n cuenta con 65 o mAs aiios de edad, y que se deben conceder
las deferencias debidas a quienes han alcanzado la bendici6n de una
edad avanzada.
En atenci6n a lo anterior, el Presidente Johnson exhorta a las enti-
dades p6blicas y privadas, y a la ciudadania en general, a honrar la
consagraci6n del mes, ofreciendo mayores oportunidades a los norte-
americanos de venerable edad.
El President de Estados Unidos solicita tambinn, que se rinda tri-
buto merecido a quienes dedicaran toda una vida a la participaci6n
creative en el acontecer national y de la colectividad en que se agitan.
Pide el Presidente que se tomen las medidas indicadas para ofrecerles
a esos ciudadanos una verdadera oportunidad de gozar de salud,
consideraci6n y bienestar condigno con su edad.
"Busqucmos maneras de utilizar la destreza y sabiduria que tantos
de nuestros venerables Americanos poseen y anhelan compartir,"
dice la proclama presidential, al exhortar a los Gobernadores, Comi-
sionados y otros altos funcionarios a participar en la observancia de ese
mes dedicado a los Ciudadanos de Edad Venerable.

Bur6 Especial

Para Oradores
La organizaci6n de un bur6 para
oradores esta siendo contemplada
con miras a suministrar informaci6n
y entretenimiento a entidades civicas
y hermandades de la Zona del Canal,
seg6n se ha anunciado.
Ya se tiene preparada una list de
oradores disponibles para llevar la
oalabra en ocasiones o events espe-
ciales que celebren las entidades
Ese bur6 responded al deseo de la
poblaci6n de "enterarse de lo que los
otros realizan" ya que muchas veces
se estA al tanto de lo que sucede en
el propio circulo inmediato, pero se
ignora lo que acontece en otras agen-
cias, dependencias o departamentos.
El bur6 estarA en capacidad de
ofrecer dos conferencistas para pli-
ticas ante grupos civicos o herman-
dades. La plAtica versaria sobre
asuntos que atafien al conferencista,
aunque ello no seria indispensable,
Las charlas seran breves, con sentido
humoristico, e interesantes, y su
gama se extenderA desde el cultivo
de la orquidea hasta c6mo pilotear
un paquebote a trav6s del Canal.
Se abriga la esperanza de que este
bur6 sirva para crear una mejor com-
prensi6n del rol que toca a cada
ouien desempefiar en la organizaci6n
del Canal.
Los grupos que estuvieren intere-
sados en escuchar una platica, o las
personas que se hallaren dispuestas
a dictarlas, deben de ponerse en
contact con la Oficina de Informa-
ci6n del Canal de PanamA, donde
se prepararAn planes para el pro-
grama. Esa oficina se encargaria del
manejo del asunto a fin de complacer
a las parties, poniendolas en contact
personal para los arreglos definitivos.

Gente en la Noticia

Albert Brown, a la derecha, atiende a dos personas que han acudido al Juzgado de Crist6bal en busca de
alguna informaci6n. Sobre Brown ha dicho el Juez Guthrie F. Crowe: "ha sido un excelente empleado del
Juzgado durante muchos afios."

El nombre de Albert Brown puede
que pase desapercibido para muchas
personas, pero cuando se menciona a
"Col6n Al" Brown, entonces todo el
mundo sabe que es el famoso Arbitro
de boxeo colonense que desde hace
mAs de 30 afios viene actuando en
numerosos encuentros pugilisticos

dos Unidos en Crist6bal desde el 15
de junio de 1927, pero anteriormente

Brown, por cierto, es el 6nico em-
pleado no estadounidense en el Juz-
gado y ha trabajado ya bajo las
6rdenes de site jueces de los Estados
Unidos. Su actual jefe es el Juez
Guthrie F. Crowe, quien ha dicho
que "Brown ha sido un excelente
empleado del Juzgado durante
muchos afios."
Nacido en la ciudad de Col6n,
en donde reside con su esposa Rosa
Newball de Brown, el popular depor-
tista se inici6 en el boxeo como anun-
ciador, pasando luego a la labor de
Arbitro, cuando hizo su estreno en el
Teatro Strand, de la ciudad de Col6n.
Desde entonces ha intervenido en
numerosos combates tanto locales
como internacionales, tocAndole arbi-
trar en la exhibici6n que ofreci6 en
el Estadio Olimpico de Panama, el
entonces campe6n mundial de todos
los pesos, Joe Louis, en 1948.
Durante su carrera como Arbitro,
"Col6n Al" Brown ha visto en acci6n
a figures mundiales del boxeo, tales
como el finado ex campe6n pluma
del mundo Davey Moore, el ex cam-
pe6n ligero Joe Brown, Percy Basset,
Cocoa Kid, el ex campe6n ligero
Juan Zurita, el ex campe6n gallo
PanamA Al Brown, tambi6n fallecido;

brado por cada nuevo juez asignado
al Juzgado y posteriormente el nom-
bramiento debe ser aprobado en
Washington. Dice Brown que "he
tenido la suerte que siempre
aprueban mi nombramiento."
El es miembro de The Federal
Court Clerk Association, con sede
en Washington, D.C., desde hace
6 afios.
No piensa retirarse de las activi-
dades boxisticas por ahora, pues

todavia se siente joven y lleno de
energies, cosas muy necesarias para
dirigir un encuentro de boxeo
"Col6n Al" Brown ha actuado en
todos los sitios en done se ha ofre-
cido boxeo en PanamA y Col6n, tales
como el Teatro Strand, el Club Tro-
pical, el Colon Cotton Club, la
Arena de Col6n, Gimnasio Nacional,
Estadio Olimpico, etc.

Vetusta Draga Pasa al

Club de Yates, Gamboa

Una antigua draga de cuchar6n
de 5 yards de capacidad que prest6
servicios durante los dias de la cons-
trucci6n y que desde 1918 venia
siendo utilizada por la Divisi6n de
Dragas como barcaza-taller de repa-
raciones, ha sido heredada ahora por
el Club de Yates de Gamboa, donde
se empleara como taller de repara-
ci6n de pequefios botes.
Hasta hace poco se le conoci6
como estaci6n de reparaciones No.
171, despues de haber lucido el
nombre de Mindi durante los dias
iniciales. La embarcaci6n fue cons-
truida en el astillero de Featherstone
Foundry & Machine Co., de Chicago,
en 1906, a un cost de $100,000 y
lleg6 al Istmo en 1907.
Fue utilizada en excavaciones para
remover roca de coral en el litoral
atlAntico, desde Crist6bal hasta
Gat6n. Desde 1918 se le destin6 a
barcaza de reparaciones, perdiendo
el nombre de Mindi, que fue apli-
cado a una draga de succi6n del
Canal de Panama que es de las mis
grandes del mundo.
La mayor parte de la maquinaria
que estaba abordo fue retirada antes
de ser pasada al club de yates.

La entrada del Canal en el literal
AtlAntico queda a 33.52 millas al
Norte y 27.02 millas al Oeste de la
entrada en el Pacifico.


Astor N. Lewis, a la izquierda, entrega un trofeo a miembros del Club de Judo-Karate de Rainbow City, como
premio por su cooperaci6n al program de recreaci6n de verano en el Gimnasio de la Escuela de Paraiso, en

Carlos Evering, primer grado into chocolate; Enrique Carew, into blanco; y Fausto Andrade, primer grado

De alli que a mis de la excelente
atenci6n m6dica que se dispensa en
esa casa de salud, se proven tambien
a los pacientes distracciones diversas,
entire ellas la lecture. A este ultimo
e instructive pasatiempo contribuyen
generosamente la Biblioteca de la
Zona del Canal, la USAFSOUCOM,
el Bibliotecario de Servicios Espe-
cializados y la Cruz Roja Americana.
Los tomos y vol6menes donados son
revisados antes de ponerse a dispo-
sici6n general.
Sobre todo se presta atenci6n par-
S ticular a reparar y poner en buenas
condiciones los libros, folletos o
revistas que asi lo precisaren; luego
se seleccionan los libros, que no
deben de ser muy grandotes ni pesa-
dos y much menos de carActer
Se da preferencia a la literature
alegre, optimist y alentadora, lo que
corresponde a la inclinaci6n gene-
ralizada hacia obras sobre oficios,
ocupaciones y viajes.

Las Damas Crises realizan la dis-
tribuci6n en su biblioteca-rodante.
Cada libro luce una tarjetita rosada
que dice en ingl6s y en espafiol:

libro y esperan que sea de su agrado."
Muchas donaciones de libros y

ticulares que leen griego, francs,

El Canal de

Panama' Visto

De Afuera

El Canal de Panama sirvi6 de
t6pico para por lo menos dos impor-
tantes cr6nicas, aparecidas durante
el pasado mes de marzo en Estados
Unidos. Una detalla las realizaciones
logradas por el Canal durante sus
primeros 50 afios y la otra se rela-
ciona con el alumbrado fluorescent
que bordea la via interoceAnica.
Illuminating Engineering, revista
de Nueva York, se ocupa de los pla-
nos e instalaciones del alumbrado ya
mencionado, ilustrando la cr6nica
con fotografias tomadas de dia y de
El semanario Seafarer's Log, por
su parte, destaca la importancia pre-
sente y future del Canal, ilustrando
la narrative con dos fotografias de
los dias de la construcci6n; una del
Corte de Culebra antes de la apertura
del Canal y la otra de las Esclusas
de Miraflores en 1912.

En 1913 se expidi6 una orden pro-
hibi6ndose voltear los asientos de los
vagones de primera del Ferrocarril
de PanamA, "al Sur de Gorgona,"
a no ser que estuviesen ocupados
por lo menos por tres pasajeros.

Gran Valor Terapeutico Tienen

Espectaculos en los Hospitales

dValen la pena los esfuer-
zos que hacen en los hospita-
les para el entretenimiento de
los pacientes? Para calibrar a
qud punto los aprecian, ldase
esta cr6nica escrita por un
paciente del Hospital Gorgas.

-"La Cruz Roja ofrece un espec-
tAculd alas 2 de la tarde," me dijo
la sonriente enfermera.
-",QuA clase de funci6n?" le pre-
-"Oh . pues muchachas y can-
-Ah . bueno! Si asi es la
cosa-ire . .
Ahora me alegro de haber asis-
tido. Se trataba de un concerto pre-
sentado por un coro mixto de la Uni-
versidad de Illinois: siete damitas y
siete muchachos, inclusive el director.
Tenian voces educadas y de fres-
cas tonalidades. Sobre todo una, no
altisonante pero si melodiosa y con
ese tono y calidad especiales que solo
tiene la voz del negro. Era voz de
baritone, cAlida y armoniosa; y sobre
todo, llena de la alegria de vivir . !
La concurrencia: pacientes en si-
llas de ruedas; sobre camillas; apo-
yando el peso sobre muletas o
bastones; de pie por si mismos. . .
Los menos eran los norteamericanos.
Un aborigen mozo (chocoe o guamy?)
estaba sentado a mi lado. Llevaba

muletas y empezaba a habituarse a
su pierna artificial. Su semblante
permanecia impAvido, pero aplaudia
con igual calor que todos.
Excepto, quizAs, por aquella chica
alta, sinuosa, de lustrosa piel negra
y nitidos dientes de fulgente blan-
cura. Posiblemente de ascendencia
Watusi, la joven no perdia una sola
nota. Se removia en el asiento, riendo
en veces, absorta en la misica; el
busto inclinado hacia adelante como
para acercarse mis al ritmo. Batia
palmas con furor, rApida y prolon-
gadamente. MAs que todos los demas.
La m6sica era inquietante. Los
ordenanzas cruzaban la sala como
sobre pies alados. Un solo ordenanza,
sosteniendo una botella de glucosa,
permanecia inm6vil, inclinado sobre
una camilla en la que yacia un pa-
ciente que recibia alimentaci6n
Quienes observaban su aniversa-
rio de nacimiento, fueron agasajados
con el armonioso rendimiento de
"Cumpleafios, feliz . ."
La tonada mis favorecida y aplau-
dida se inici6 con un cuarteto mas-
culino al que se uni6, para el final,
todo el coro; me pareci6 que se
llamaba: "Adi6s, Mi Chica del Coney
Island . ."
La funci6n fue excelente medica-
mento-gracias al coro y a la Cruz

No se llevarA a cabo la anunciada pelea entire el primer peso pluma del mundo
Ismael Laguna y el africano Love Allotey, segundo junior ligero del mundo, que
estaba sefialada para el domingo 3 de mayo en el Estadio Olimpico de Panama.
El encuentro, sefialado originalmente para el 26 de este mes, se aplaz6 para
el dia 3 de mayo en vista de que Allotey no habia cumplido la suspension impuesta
por la Junta de Juegos y Recreaci6n de Filipinas y respaldada por la Asociaci6n
Mundial de Boxeo, por haber tratado de agredir a un Arbitro filipino en noviembre
fltimo, al ser descalificado en su combat contra el Campe6n Mundial Junior
Ligero Flash Elorde, en Manila, en el cual se disputaba el titulo mundial.

Allotey ha manifestado que aunque se encuentra en buenas condiciones fisicas,
no estd lo suficientemente preparado para enfrentarse el 3 de mayo a un plgil
de la categoria de Laguna, por lo cual pidi6 nuevo aplazamiento que no fue
aceptado por Isaac Kresch, apoderado del pdgil colonense.

Kresch se puso inmediatamente en contact con el empresario George Par-
nassus, de los Angeles, California, y 6ste arregl6 inmediatamente un combat
para Laguna en Tijuana, M6xico, contra el Campe6n Peso Pluma mexicano
Vicente Saldivar para el 25 de mayo pr6ximo, a un limited de 10 asaltos.
