IS Vol. II, No. 49

50 Years of Service . To World Commerce

Friday, May 28, 1964

Employees of the Canal organiza-
tion are being given an opportunity
to honor the memory of the late Pres.
John F. Kennedy by making personal
contributions to the establishment of
the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library
in Boston, Mass.
A special program, in keeping
with similar activities in the United
States, will begin in the Canal
Zone on President Kennedy's birth-
day, May 29. Organized through the
facilities of the Governor's Council
for Voluntary Giving, headed by
Lt. Gov. David S. Parker, the pro-
gram will permit all employees who
wish to do so to contribute toward
the cost of the project.
In a memorandum to employees,
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., said that
the effort is completely voluntary,
both for those who work to make it
successful and for those who give.
Special lists have been prepared for
contributors to sign so that their par-
ticiptation can be made part of the
library's archives. Contributions from
non-U.S. citizen would, of course, be
equally welcome, he said.
"It is difficult to think of a more


There's 17/2 Million Cubic Yards

More Canal Than When He Arrived

The Panama Canal is bigger by
more than 17% million cubic yards
today than it was in August 1961,
when Col. Matthew C. Harrison,
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
arrived on the Isthmus from Wash-
ington, D.C., to take over the job as
director of the Panama Canal's Engi-
neering and Construction Bureau.
This amount of dirt and rock has
been removed from Gaillard Cut in
three major job contracts which are
part of a series of improvements
designed to increase the capacity of
the Canal by enlarging the width of
the Cut from its original 300 to
500 feet.
When Colonel Harrison arrived,
work on the Paraiso-Cucaracha
Reach was in progress. He was
present during the removal of 1%
million yards or Zone 2 (below eleva-
tion 95) of this contract. Widening
of Empire Reach added 11.3 million
yards to the total. The most recent
contract for widening Zone 1 (above
elevation 95) of the Las Cascadas-
Bas Obispo Reach is drawing to a
close and will account for more than
5 million cubic yards.
When the colonel leaves the Isth-
mus in June after nearly 3 years with

erans' organizations will hold services

Urging all the people in the Canal Zone to pause in a prayer for per-
manent peace on Memorial Day, Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., has called
attention to the proclamation issued by Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson. Text of
the proclamation follows:
WHEREAS on Memorial Day of each year it has long been the custom
of this Nation to honor its forefathers and compatriots who have laid down
their lives that we might live in freedom; and
WHEREAS we are eternally grateful to them for their supreme and
selfless sacrifice on the field of battle; and
WHEREAS the same revolutionary beliefs and ideals for which our
forebears fought and died are still at issue in the world and the challenge
against them can be met only through the same qualities of bravery,
fortitude, and unyielding determination shown by our noble dead; and
WHEREAS Memorial Day each year provides a fitting occasion upon
which our citizens may commemorate departed loved ones and offer prayers
for the preservation of liberty and peace free from the threat of war; and
WHEREAS for this purpose the Congress, in a joint resolution approved
May 11, 1950, (64 Stat. 158), requested the President to issue a proclama-
tion calling upon the people of the United States to observe each Memorial
Day as a day of prayer for permanent peace:
United States of America, do hereby designate Memorial Day, Saturday,
May 30, 1964, as a day of prayer for permanent peace, and I call upon
all the people of the Nation to invoke God's blessing on those who have
died in defense of our country and to pray for a world of law and order.
I designate the hour beginning in each locality at 11 o'clock in the morning
of that day as the time to unite in such prayer.
I also urge the press, radio, television, and all other information media
to cooperate in this observance.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused
the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
By the President:
Secretary of State.

Nation's memorial to him," the
memorandum said.
"The library will be the national
memorial to President Kennedy. It
will house the complete record of

his life, his times, and his administra-

by Harvard University and selected
by President Kennedy just 8 weeks
before his death.
He had intended to make his
office there. He hoped to use his
experience to help train and educate
young people, both from America
and abroad, who wanted to serve
their countries and the world. It is
the wish of President Kennedy's
family and friends that the spirit of
his plans be fulfilled.

Ice Additives Tried

For Safe Fish Storage
Efforts to lengthen the period of
safe storage of fish for human con-
sumption are being strengthened, as
research moves ahead in the use of
antibiotic drugs to combat the
actions of "cold-loving" bacteria
which cause deterioration despite
iced storage.
Addition of such drugs to the
crushed ice loaded aboard trawlers
indicates the researchers may be on
the right track.

All Libraries

Closed Saturday
The main Canal Zone Library in
the Civil Affairs Building will be
open from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday,
May 29. The Cristobal, Paraiso, and
Rainbow City branches will be open
from 9 a.m. to noon.
These hours are being established
so that those libraries which usually
are open both Friday and Saturday
will avoid being closed for 2 straight
of their regularly scheduled days
over the 3-day holiday period.
In effect, those libraries which
maintain Saturday schedules will
observe the Saturday hours on
Friday. Circulating and job-site
libraries will be closed during the
entire weekend.
All libraries will be closed on
Saturday, May 30.

Liz Is Cleo VI;

Movie Opening

Two-Week Run

Joseph L. Mankiewicz' Cleopatra
is the sixth known motion picture
dealing with the legendary queen
of the Nile. Undoubtedly, it is the
most publicized and at $40 million,
the costliest.
The first Cleopatra, the record
shows, was filmed in France in 1906.
It was followed by two more silent
treatments, one made in Italy, the
other-and most elaborate up to
then-in the United States, in 1916,
with famed cinema vamp Theda
Bara starred. Then, in 1933, Cleo-
patra made her "talkie" debut in a
celebrated Cecil B. DeMille version
in which Claudette Colbert por-
trayed the Egyptian temptress.
The last treatment of the story was
Gabriel Pascal's 1945 rendition of
George Bernard Shaw's, Caesar and
Cleopatra, in which Vivien Leigh
played the Nile beauty.
In 20th Century-Fox's current
color epic, movie queen Elizabeth
Taylor has the title (and titled) role,
with Rex Harrison as Julius Caesar
and Richard Burton as Mark Antony.
The picture opens at the Balboa
Theater Saturday, May 30, for a
2-week run. There will be one show-
ing each night starting at 7:30 p.m.,
with Saturday and Sunday matinees
at 2 p.m.

Manuel Ycaza To Ride

In Sunday Classic Here
Manuel Ycaza, fiery Panamanian
jockey who has been campaigning
in the United States for several
years and has been riding recently
at Aqueduct track in New York, has
accepted a bid to ride in the Pres-
idential Classic, Sunday at President
Rem6n track in Panama City.
Ycaza will ride Royal Cat Stable's
"Mir6n Real." He will arrive on the
Isthmus Sunday morning with his
wife, former Miss Universe Linda

SDAC's Engelke Only Repeat Choice

Only one repeat is found on the
1964 All-Star Basketball Team
announced by the Department of
Physical Education and Athletics.
The team is picked by the coaches
of the four interscholastic teams
(Balboa and Cristobal High Schools,
Canal Zone College, and Schools
Division Athletic Club).
The only repeat is Willie Engelke,
a guard for SDAC and one of the
league's best playmakers and ball
handlers. Willie made the team last
year while playing for the college
and also has had the honor as a
member of a Balboa High School
team. The personable Engelke was
the league's second best free-throw

shooter and averaged more than 10
points per game.
The other guard selected is Bob
Baggott from Balboa High School.
A youngster with a fine shooting eye,
co-captain Baggott finished the
season with a 15.67 scoring average
and was third best in foul shooting.
Luther Quinn, a teammate of
Baggott's, was chosen at a forward
position. Quinn, a two-time All-Zone
in baseball, will be a senior next
year. The BHS ace narrowly missed
out as the league's top scorer with
183 points for an average of 20.33
points per game. He also was a
co-captain of the BHS team in 1964.
Possibly the most valuable player

in the league for 1964, Canal Zone
College's Jeff Leon was chosen as
the other forward. When the team
needed settling down, Leon, who
boasted a 17.33 points per game
average, took charge. Shooting only
when necessary, Leon set up plays
with sharp, timely passes to lead the
college to the title in the interschool
The center for the 1964 All-Star
team is Mike Baranick of Cristobal
High School. Baranick set a single
game scoring record of 46 points
(against CZC), broke the scoring
record for a single season (185
points), was fifth in foul shooting and
had the best scoring average (20.56).


Trapping... for "Small Game"

Most people can attract mosqui-
toes without a trap. But for scientific
purposes the Canal Zone Division of
Sanitation uses a trap baited with a
light. James L. Hawkins, Canal Zone
medical entomologist, is shown at
right examining the nightly mosquito
catch at the Coco Solo light trap.
When the marsh mosquito is
breeding in large quantities, as they
do at this time of the year, the trap
may catch as many as 25,000 in
a single night. Mosquitoes are
attracted by the electric light under
the hood. A fan underneath the light

pulls the mosquitoes, and other in-
sects as well, into a jar filled with
potassium cyanide. There are five
such traps in the northern sanitation
area used 4 nights weekly.
Several States papers, noting that
malaria and yellow fever mosquitoes
had to be licked so the Panama
Canal could be built, have observed
that someone may have to do the
same to mosquitoes of the Mississippi
River Delta if Americans are to get
to the moon.
The mosquitoes swarm out of the
salt marshes and surround the
Michoud plant, 15 miles east of
New Orleans, where the Boeing Co.
is building the new Saturn V rocket.
A New York Times report stated that
engineers are safe in their air-condi-
tioned factory, but that they and
their families are exposed at home.

Weather Machine

In Training for

Forecasting Job

Some of the drudgery experienced
daily by the weather forecasters, and
perhaps some of the vilification, may
be reduced in the near future by the
use of a machine, called the learning
machine, which can be fed and
taught to recognize geometric pat-
terns found in weather formations.
The machine is called ADALINE
(short for adaptive linear neuron)
and learns its own mathematical
procedures for processing meteoro-
logical data fed to it in training on
weather patterns.
Developed by M. C. J. Hu at
Stanford University, the machine is
now trained on some 200 weather
patterns taken from weather records
over the past 5 years, and has been
amazingly accurate in its predictions.


Typists Needed

Stenographers and typists are
needed badly according to Otto W.
IIelmerichs, Chief of the Central
Employment Office of the Canal
Zone Civilian Personnel Policy Co-
ordinating Board. Greatest need is
at the NM-3 and NM-4 levels and
to fill security positions.
The entrance rate of pay for
security positions at the NM-3 level
is $4,850 per year and at the NM-4
level $5,268.75. In order to attract
more applicants, weekly testing will
be instituted after June 2. In order
to expedite processing, applicants
must file an Application for Federal
Employment (SF-57) and a Canal
Zone Form 513. These forms may be
obtained at the Central Employment
Office. Applicants also should bring
their birth certificate and cedula if
necessary to the Central Employ-
ment Office for examination prior to
taking the test.
Those who are taking typing or
shorthand at Balboa or Cristobal
High Schools or Canal Zone College
may be tested at those institutions
and a proficiency certificate issued
there will be accepted by the Central
Employment Office in lieu of taking
the performance tests.
Grade NM-3 Stenographers must
be high school graduates or have 6
months of appropriate experience
and Grade NM-4 Stenographers and
NM-3 Typists must have at least
1 year of schooling above the high
school level or 1 year of appropriate
experience in addition to passing the
written and performance tests.

Savings Bond

Drive in Zone

Opens in June

A painless way to save money if
there is such a thing-is through the
purchase of U.S. savings bonds by
payroll deduction.
This automatic and systematic
savings plan is only one of the many
advantages to the purchase of savings
With the opening in June of the
annual Canal organization savings
bond drive, savings bond representa-
tives will be on hand to explain these
advantages and help employees draw
up suitable payroll deduction plans.
At present more than 2,700 Canal
employees are investing $134,700 a
month to purchase bonds through
payroll deduction.
They know, for instance, that in
addition to an automatic savings
plan, they are adding to their nest
eggs with securities that earn 3%
percent interest and are not subject
to market fluctuations; that the bonds
can be replaced by the U.S. Treasury
if they are stolen, lost, or destroyed;
and that they provide a source of
ready cash if needed any time after
60 days from the date of issue.
Savings bond representatives who
will contact employees during the
June "Operation Security" will be
announced next week.

In 46 B.C. Julius Caesar put an
end to calendar chaos and confusion
by introduction of a solar year of
365 days and one quarter of a day
duration, according to the Egyptian
example. The Egyptian astronomer
Sosigenes cooperated with Caesar.

Generally with three strikes a
person is out; but Jeff Leon, Canal
Zone College athlete, has three
strikes-and he's in-in the record
The personable Leon, a sophomore
at CZC, this year became the only
person since the All-Zone awards
began in 1953 to be named in the
same year to All-Zone teams in the
three sports where recognition is
awarded-football, baseball, and
Leon has been named to the
All-Zone teams five out of six times
at CZC (last year he was All Zone in
baseball and football). In addition,
he has been outstanding in track: in
his senior year at Cristobal High,
Leon won five trophies for relay
events in the Balboa Relays, was the
100-yard dash winner in the relays,
and was the captain and most
valuable member of the track team.
In addition, he was the recipient of
the Outstanding Athlete Award
presented by the Elks Club.
Leon's hard running and outstand-
ing defensive work in football made
him a unanimous choice for the All-
Zone team in that sport. His spirit
and drive led the college to the
football title in 1963 and 1964. A fast
man on the bases and in the outfield,
and one of the best on the Isthmus
with a bat, Leon was voted the
league's top centerfielder in baseball
this year. Last year Leon made the
All-Zone baseball team as a catcher.
Only mediocre in a partial season
with the college last year in basket-
ball, Leon's fine playmaking and
accurate shooting this year led the
college to the championship in
interscholastic basketball.
Next year Leon hopes to attend

Creative Writing

Of BHS Students

In Anthology

Essays, fiction, and poems by 45
contributors are contained in Volume
II: Isthmian Inklings, an anthology
of creative writing by the students
of Balboa High School published by
the Point of View Club.
The foreword takes note of the
many hours of free time devoted to
the project by students and expressed
thanks to faculty members for help
and advice, particularly Miss Nancy
Scott. Paul Meyer was chairman
of the publication committee of
the club. Carol Farbman is club
In the essays section are titles
ranging from Truth and Individuality
to Fred, or How One Can Enjoy a
Relatively Normal Life by Living an
Abnormal One and How To Figure
Out a Woman's Purse.
Some of the fiction section titles
are The Day They Dared Me, The
Spring Visitor, The Mutiny, and
A Moment of Decision. Poems cover
a range from the romantic, oriental
and blank verse to parodies in Old

CZC Teacher Listed

For Summer Institute
Participants in the Summer Insti-
tute for College Teachers of Micro-
biology at the University of South-
western Louisiana, Lafayette, include
Miss Margaret Gately, Balboa, who
teaches at Canal Zone College.

ducted from June 8 through August 7,
and is supported by the National
Science Foundation. Approximately
30 college biology teachers will par-
ticipate in the program, representing
19 different States and the Canal

either the University of Reno or i
Nevada Southern, both in Nevada.
A prospective physical education
major, Leon enjoys golf, skin, and
scuba diving, and is a senior life-
saver. Leon is one of only two stu-
dents in the history of Cristobal High
School to have won five letters in
one year-swimming, football, base-
ball, basketball, and track.
Yet another honor is to be be-
stowed upon the CZC athlete: a
plaque is being made which will
carry the name of the outstanding
,athlete at the college each year;
with Leon's to be the first to be
engraved on it.

Ismael Laguna, el piugil colonense que ocupa el primer lugar en las clasificaciones
* del peso pluma tanto de la Asociaci6n Mundial de Boxeo como de las revistas The Ring
y Boxing Illustrated, hara su primera presentaci6n en tinglados mexicanos cuando se
mida el pr6ximo lunes 19 de junio con el campe6n mexicano de la division, el zurdo
Vicente Saldivar.
La pelea, que sera a un limited de 10 asaltos y con peso mAximo de 128 libras, tendra
por scenario la ciudad de Tijuana, en Baja California, bajo la promoci6n del conocido
empresario George Parnassus, de los Angeles, y del mexicano NicolAs Rodriguez.
Laguna percibir-i una bolsa de $8,000 por este combat, mis todos los gastos para 61,
su apoderado Isaac Kresch y el entrenador Ram6n Dosman.
El destacado pigil del Istmo declar6 hace poco en ciudad de M6xico que despu6s
de su combat con Saldivar, decidira si pelea sicmpre en la capital mexicana con el
campe6n mundial de la division, Ultiminio "Sugar" Ramos por el titulo. Parece que la
altura de la ciudad de M6xico no afect6 much a Laguna durante los 3 dias que entren6

allA. El problema de la altura ha sido el obstAculo que ha puesto Kresch para no firmar
el contrato con el promoter Miguel de la Colina para el encuentro por el titulo mundial.
Laguna impresion6 much a los aficionados y a la critical mexicana durante sus
entrenamientos y el gimnasio en donde practice estuvo colmado de espectadores todos
los dias.
Ahora hay tres empresas promotoras de boxeo que se disputan el derecho de montar
la pelea por el titulo mundial de peso pluma. Una es la del mexicano Miguel de la
Colina, quien tiene una opci6n del campe6n Ramos para hacer la pelea en M6xico, y
los otros son George Parnassus y Leo Minskoff, de la Civic Boxing Enterprises, ambos
de Los Angeles.
Parnassus tiene una opci6n de una pelea de campeonato con Ramos, mientras que
Minskoff ha ofrecido al campe6n $60,000 para que defienda su corona en Los Angeles
ante el ganador de la pelea entire Laguna y Saldivar.

La Nueva Produccion "Cleopatra"

Ha Costado $40 Millones y la que

Mayor Publicidad
La pelicula Cleopatra de Joseph
L. Mankiewicz, es la sexta produc-
ci6n cinematogrifica conocida que
se relaciona con la legendaria Reina
del Nilo. Sin lugar a dudas, es la que
ha recibido mayor publicidad y
la que mAs ha costado, $40 millones.
Seg6n los archives, la primera
Cleopatra fue filmada en Francia en
1906. Fue seguida por dos peliculas
silentes, una hecha en Italia, y la
otra-y mejor producida hasta enton-
ces-en los Estados Unidos en 1916,
con la famosa vampiresa del cine
Theda Bara como estrella. Entonces,
en 1933, Cleopatra hizo su estreno
"hablado" en la famosa version de
Cecil B. DeMille en la cual Claudette
Colbert personific6 a la tentadora

I ha Registrado
La iltima producci6n de la histo-
ria fue la version realizada en 1945
por Gabriel Pascal del libro Cesar y
Cleopatra de George Bernard Shaw

La actual superproducci6n en co-
lores de la 20th Century Fox tiene

Elizabeth Taylor, actuando Rex Har-
rison como Julio C6sar y Richard

Los Mosquitos Fueron Problema

En el Trabajo del Canal y son

Ahora Amenaza a Proyecto Lunar

Algunos peri6dicos de los Estados
Unidos sefialando que los mosquitos
transmisores de la malaria y la fiebre
amarilla tuvieron que ser erradicados
para que el Canal de Panama pudie-
ra ser construido, han hecho la obser-
vaci6n de que alguien debe hacer lo
mismo con los mosquitos en la delta
del Rio Mississippi si los norteame-
ricanos van a llegar a la Luna.
Enjambre de mosquitos salen de
las marismas y rodean la plant
Michoud, a 15 millas al este de
Nueva Orleans, donde la Boeing Co.
estA construyendo el nuevo cohete
Saturno V. Un informed del New
York Times expresa que los ingenie-
ros estan seguros en su fAbrica con
aire acondicionado, pero que tanto
ellos como sus families estin expues-
tos en sus casas.
Los ingenieros, la mayoria proce-
dente del norte, dicen que nunca se
han encontrado ni han sido picados
por tales mosquitos infecciosos. Las
madres dicen que tienen que man-
tener a sus hijos dentro de la casa,
lo cual aumenta la tension dom6s-
tica. Algunos de los constructors
del Saturno hablan ya de abandonar
sus empleos.
Los residents del Area de Nueva

Orleans sefialan que ellos y sus ante-
pasados han vivido con los mosqui-
tos de las marismas durante 250 afios,
pero ahora el Consejo Municipal ha
autorizado la contrataci6n de un di-
rector de control del mosquito. Si se
encuentra uno y se proporcionan los
fondos necesarios, el mosquito puede
ser controlado. Si no sucede asi, los
mosquitos pueden asestar un golpe
al proyecto lunar.

Prueban Drogas en el

Hielo Para Preservar

Pescado Almacenado
Se estan fortaleciendo los esfuer-
zos que se hacen para prolongar el
period de almacenamiento seguro
del pescado para consume, al ade-
lantar las investigaciones en el uso
de drogas antibi6ticas para combatir
las acciones de la bacteria "amante
del frio" que causa deterioros a pesar
del almacenamiento refrigerado.
Todo parece indicar que los inves-
tigadores estAn sobre la pista correct
al afiadir tales drogas al hielo picado
que se carga abordo de los barcos
