Taboga Launch
Score: 34,177 U
'64 Passengers
A total of 34,177 passengers were
transported to Taboga during 1964
in launches that operate from Pier
17, Balboa, to Taboga and return.
The Panama Tourist Institute ac- ,
quired the launches Swallow and
Runner on August 16, 1963 and
placed them in operation under con- "
tract with Mario Guardia. The
launches now are named Ligia Elena
and Aurora. '
The itinerary of the Taboga
launches has remained unchanged,
with daily trips and the same price .j.
that was charged when the Panama .
Canal operated the launches. Adults .- r "; "
pay $1 for each one-way trip, and ""
children, 50 cents. Tickets are sold
in the Hotel Lux in Panama City
and on Pier 17.
The launches leave from Pier 17,
Balboa, Mondays at 6 a.m. and
4 p.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and
Thursday, at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.;
Friday, at 8 a.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30

Camera bugs will be snapping up
the opportunity tomorrow for color-
ful pictures of a typical Panamanian
dance troupe that will perform from
10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Cathedral
of Old Panama..
The show will be staged every
Saturday at the same time through
March 16. The eight shows are under
the sponsorship of the Panama
Institute of Tourism and Kodak,
Panama, Ltd.
The setting selected for the
dancing is one of the most beautiful
in Panama. It has historic signifi-

Governor's Cadillac

Hauled Many a VIP

After 6 years and 8 months of
serving faithfully three Canal Zone
Governors, the 1957 7-passenger
Cadillac assigned to the Panama
Canal organization for the Gov-
ernor's use has been retired.
The Cadillac's retirement is in
keeping with an economy regulation
that affects all U.S. Government
vehicles. As a result, the Governor's
limousine has been replaced by a
medium size 1965 sedan.
The Cadillac was the first air-
conditioned automobile ever to be
used in the Panama Canal Motor
Transportation Division's fleet serv-
ice. It had been used in Washington,
D.C., assigned to Harold Stassen, for
about a year when it was released for
sale. Purchased in 1958 for $4,999
from the U.S. Government, the
Cadillac was brought to the Isthmus
for the use of Gov. William E.
Potter. Next it was assigned to Gov.
William A. Carter and, until recently,
served Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.
While in service on the Isthmus,

the limousine had quite a colorful
history of VIP transportation. Among
notables who rode in the Governor's
limousine were Dag Hammarskjold,
former U.N. secretary; Lt. Gen.
W. K. Wilson, Jr., Chief of Engi-
neers, U.S. Army; Gen. Alfred M.
Gruenther, now president of the
American Red Cross; Joan Begg,
interior decorator for the White
House; Gen. Anastasio Somoza, com-
mander in chief of the Armed Forces
of Nicaragua and his family; Gen.
Miguel Ydigoras Fuentes, then Pres-
ident of Guatemala; Secretary of the
Army Stephen Ailes; former gov-
ernors, members of the Board of
Directors, and many others.
This was the first Cadillac ever to
be assigned for use by a Canal Zone
Governor-and quite a contrast to
the old Model-T in which one
Governor rode.
The Cadillac, on retirement from
service for the Canal Zone Governor's
use, was released by the Motor
Transportation Division to the
Supply Division for disposal by sale.

chance that combines with its pic-
turesque qualities to make it a top
favorite for photographers. When the
15 dancers, in typical dress-the gay
and colorful pollera and montuna-
begin to perform, the scene will be
one worth recording on film.
Master of ceremonies will be Te6-
filo Tufi6n. In Spanish and English,
he will explain the attire and the
dances. Dancers will pose indi-
vidually for photographers and there
will be experts on hand to provide
film and photo taking advice.
Since each picture is shown to
17 other people-on the average-
the series of shows will be a publicity
boost for Panama. Tourists will be
told of this opportunity, which gives
them one more reason for staying
a little longer in the Panama area.
All Isthmian residents are welcome
to the shows.
And for a more enjoyable time,
bring your camera.

First Come,




Sale Set

A new method of disposal of auto-
mobiles will be given a trial Jan-
uary 28 at Balboa Salvage Section
and Cristobal Storehouse on a "first
come, first served" basis.
At Balboa there will be four Ford
sedans and one station wagon with
prices from $500 to $900.
At Cristobal there will be three
Ford and two Plymouth sedans with
prices from $400 to $700.
Purchasers will be required to
deposit 25 percent of the sales price
at time of purchase and complete
payment within 10 days.


Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison,
USA, Ret., will be guest speaker for
the Inaugural Governor's Prayer
Breakfast Tuesday, February 2.
Invitations to the breakfast were
mailed today.
General Harrison was Comman-
der-in-chief, Caribbean, from June
1954 until January 1957. A high-
light of his distinguished Army
career was signing the Korean Armi-
stice as senior delegate of the Korean
Armistice Delegation, a post he
occupied from 1952 to 1953. He
now lives in Largo, Fla.
The Governor's Prayer Breakfast
will be patterned after the annual
Presidential Prayer Breakfast held
in Washington each year since 1952.
Each President of the United States
since that time has welcomed the
opportunity to meet with political,
business, and other community
leaders in a re-affirmation of their
faith in God.
Governor Fleming has recalled
that some members of the U.S. Con-
gress have met weekly for Congres-
sional Prayer Breakfasts since 1942.
Nearly every governor of the
individual States has an annual
Governor's Prayer Breakfast.
The mayors of many cities across
the Nation also are holding prayer
breakfasts and, in recent years,
prayer breakfasts have been held in
other countries. Presidential Prayer
Breakfasts have been held annually
in Costa Rica since 1962.
All these prayer breakfasts are
organized by laymen willing to make

's Prayer

public their faith in God and in
prayer. Panama Canal Comptroller,
Philip L. Steers, Jr., is chairman of
the Inaugural Governor's Committee
in the Canal Zone.
The Governor's Prayer Breakfast
February 2 will be held in the main
dining room of the Tivoli Guest
House and is scheduled for 8 a.m.
It is expected to last slightly more
than an hour.
As is customary with prayer break-
fasts, attendance will be by invita-
tion only and guests will pay for
their breakfasts, another custom of
prayer breakfast groups.
The full program will be announced

Fluency in English Goal



The Panama Canal organization
will start its first scholarship program
next month to help its non-U.S.
citizen employees learn English.
The program will be permanent,
and when it is in full swing as many
as 100 employees will be going to
night school, at Panama Canal
expense, to improve their command
of the English language. They will
attend classes at the Panamanian-
North American Association in Pan-
ama City, having been slotted into
the regular courses according to
their abilities in English at the start.
The idea is to help the employees
improve their efficiency in their
present jobs. In addition, it is ex-

Announcements in English and
Spanish have appeared on all Pan-
ama Canal bulletin boards, inviting
all interested non-U.S.-citizen em-
ployees willing to take night classes
and study faithfully to ask their
supervisors about the program.
Supervisors who endorse such study
will obtain application forms through
bureau channels and assist the em-
ployees in filling them out. The
applications then will be sent through
divisions and bureaus to the Per-
sonnel Bureau for coordination with
the schools.
Classes will start early in Feb-
ruary. There are 3 terms per year
and instruction is offered at 13 levels.
Students attend two or three times
per week, in the late afternoon or
evening, according to their classes.
The scholarships cover registra-
tion, tuition, and cost of textbooks.
These expenses are paid directly to
the schools by the Panama Canal
and are charged in turn to the indi-
vidual employing bureaus, which

St. Lawrence Seaway

Tonnage Gain Listed
Cargo traffic on the St. Lawrence
Seaway for 1964 is expected to nearly
double the 20 million ton total for
1959, the year the Montreal-Lake
Ontario section opened.
As ships moved to clear the system
for winter, the April through Novem-
ber cargo tonnage amounted to
38,500,000, or 29 percent greater
than for the same period the previous
Panama Canal cargo tonnage for
fiscal year 1964 (oceangoing com-
mercial only) was above 70/2 million
tons, vs. 51.2 million tons in 1959,
and the 1963-1964 increase was
approximately 8.3 million tons.

Visitors to Mount Hope Shipyard

',4* '' ,

Recent visitors to the Industrial Division Mount Hope
Shipyard have included the SS Pericles, Rotterdam
(upper left), the SS Harmattan, London (upper right),
the SS Sea Maid (right), and the tanker SS St. Lawrence,
New York (below). The Harmattan and Pericles under-
went routine voyage repairs. The Sea Maid's rudder was
jury rigged to permit her to sail to her home port. The
Panama Canal tug U.S. Cardenas is shown assisting the
Pericles to her repair berth, while another PanCanal
sister tug is shown in the drydock in the foreground of -
the picture of the Harmattan. Work on the St. Lawrence 1
marked the second time in a month that the Mount Hope '
Industrial Division had put a ship down by the bow to ."
permit repairs to parts normally under the water line,
without drydocking. In this case, repairs were made to ...
the propellor tail shaft and stern gland.


Easy Exercise in Arithmetic

Ever realize what your saving of
a "buck a day" on the job would
amount to in a year? In 20 years?
If you saved the Government a
dollar a day for a year, your savings
contribution to taxpayers would total
around $250. If you sustained that
effort for 20 years, your individual
savings would total around $5,000.
If every employee followed your
example through the years, the com-
bined effort would produce a whop-
ping savings of over $12 billion for
Uncle Sam.
This exercise in arithmetic was
prompted by an article in a recent
issue of DESC Electron, publication
of the Defense Electronic Supply
Center at Dayton, which challenged
Center supervisors and employees to
seek ways to save a "buck a day."
Here are a few thought-starters the
Electron offered for their considera-
tion-plus a few added in Washing-
Get to work on time and start work
on arrival.
Get to meetings on time.

Avoid long-winded telephone calls Do top-flight job the first time and
or personal discussions, avoid rework.

Shorten correspondence to say only
what is necessary.
Work safely-avoid any accident.
Take care of your health-stay on
the job.
Keep lunch periods and coffee
breaks within established limits.
Help a co-worker whenever you
can, especially when he's in a bind.
Limit unofficial visits with fellow
workers to a bare minimum.

Material intended for publica-
tion in THE SPILLWAY should be
received in the Panama Canal
Press Office not later than Monday
afternoon of the week of publica-
tion. Urgent material can be re-
ceived and processed for use the
same week as late as noon Tues-
day. Mail material to PANAMA
Heights, C.Z.

Exceed what is expected-give
bonus performance.
Beat deadlines and reduce costly
Request and use only essential
Check all work habits for savings.
Every employee doubtless can
think of scores of other possibilities
for saving a buck a day. Every em-
ployee could save at least a dollar a
day by a slight improvement in per-
formance alone, and he could save
more by suggesting ways to do a job
more efficiently and economically.
By accepting this challenge, what's
in it for you? Plenty! You increase
your job worth. By improving your
job performance, you strengthen your
skills and enhance your promotion
potential. You develop a new sense
of genuine pride in your work, of
doing a top job for all America, of
contributing to the welfare of every
American. And by doing a top job,
you may qualify for quality-rate
increases in pay and in cash awards.

The 9th Annual of the Year's Best
Science Fiction includes 30 science-
fiction short stories collected by
Judith Merril, who probably is the
most skillful anthologist in the fan-
tasy and science-fiction field. In addi-
tion to the appendix which includes
her summation of the year's science-
fiction activity, Miss Merril enhances
the interest in the collection by
adding succinct and pithy editorial
comments at the end of each story.
Such famous literary names as Mala-
mud, Kersh and Maurois, which now
appear occasionally in the science-
fiction-fantasy field, are included in
this anthology.
The Barrymores, by Hollis Alpert,
is a comprehensive account of one of
America's most exciting and colorful
families. It starts with the marriage
of Maurice Barrymore and Georgiana
Drew and faithfully details the
triumphs, disasters and idiosyncrasies
of these theater greats and their
descendants. Alpert is a film critic for
the Saturday Review and has done
profiles of people of the theater for
the New Yorker.
American Men at Arms, edited by
F. van Wyck Mason, is an anthology
of the fiction of three wars. The
chronological arrangement covers
both World Wars and the Korean
conflict and results in a finely traced
panoramic picture which illustrates
the development of warfare during
the past 50 years. Excerpts selected
for inclusion are from the writings
of many famous Twentieth Century
authors, including Lawrence Stallings
and Maxwell Anderson for World
War I, James A. Michener, Norman
Mailer and Herman Wouk for World
War II and Quentin Reynolds for the
Korean war.
Short Friday is a group of stories
by Isaac Bashevis Singer, who has
been called the "Yiddish Haw-
thorne." Like Hawthorne, he writes
of village life through the use of
morality fables and allegories. De-

American for many years, the locale

Off My Chest is the personal story
of one of the greatest athletes of all
time-Jimmy Brown, football's amaz-
ing star. In a short 7 years of profes-
sional ball, this outstanding fullback
of the Cleveland Browns already has
broken many records, and many
experts believe 28-year-old Brown
has yet to reach his greatest potential.
Here is excellence in sports-prowess,
an inside look at the football game,
and an intimate view of the per-
sonality and thoughts of one who has
lots to say and says it.
In I Can Tell it Now are collected
some untold stories behind great
news events of the past 25 years by
journalists who first reported them.
On the occasion of the 25th anniver-
sary of the Overseas Press Club of
America, some of its famous members
have contributed to this book stories
which span the years of the club's
existence. These are stories never
told before because of censorship,
the sensibilities of people then living,
or the short-sightedness of editors.
Such writers as Quentin Reynolds,
Bob Considine, Mary Hemingway,
Margaret Bourke-White, Drew Mid-
dleton, H. V. Kaltenborn, Robert
Sherrod, and John Charles Daly are
represented. The stories are fascinat-
ing, as promised by such provocative
titles as: Witness to an Assassination,

for instance, has assigned 30,000
teachers to learn new mathematics,
and California decided to spend
almost $10 million this year for new
mathematics texts.

Teachers Prepared
Many of the Canal Zone teachers,
preparing themselves to teach this
program, have attended summer in-
stitutes in the United States. Others
have availed themselves of the
opportunities offered by the Canal
Zone College and by the Schools
Division, taking courses in modern
mathematics for the elementary

45 Watercolors of Birds a

On Exhibit at Library

The Canal Zone Library-Museum
has on exhibition 45 watercolors by
Lois Morgan, Canal Zone teacher
and artist. The current showing is
a series of paintings of local birds
commonly seen in the Canal Zone,
with familiar plants and flowers used
as settings for the birds.
This is an encore showing for a
number of the watercolors, for the
paintings first were exhibited in the
museum 3 years ago. In response to
many requests of Isthmians who
share Miss Morgan's interest in birds
and plants, the present exhibit was
arranged and Miss Morgan has added
new watercolors, publicly displayed
here for the first time.
The current showing, in the mu-
seum and main library in the Civil
Affairs Building, Ancon, will be
displayed indefinitely.
Miss Morgan is an English teacher
at Diablo Heights Junior High
School. She has taught science, art,
social studies, and mathematics since
she came to the Canal Zone in 1947.
She was born in Toledo, Ohio, and
she received her bachelor of arts in
education degree at the University
of Toledo.
Miss Morgan had 1 year of art in
high school, some classes at the
Toledo Museum of Art, and 10
weeks' study in the watercolor classes
of Eliot O'Hara at Goose Rocks
Beach, Maine. She has drawn and
painted all her life, and has done
some ceramics, but for the most part
has concentrated on watercolor.

Miss Morgan paints in transparent
watercolor and uses no white for
lightening. Anything that is light
must be kept light, or scratched out
after the painting is done, she says.
In fact, she has no white in her
The birds Miss Morgan paints are
not rare jungle birds, but the ones
she has come to know. With few
exceptions, most of the birds are
fairly common. In painting the birds,
she used sketches and notes made
during bird watching sessions for
hours day after day.
"When I felt I 'knew' the birds
well enough I would sketch them
in poses that I had seen them assume
and that to me were characteristic
of the bird. Then I would check my
notes against a description of the
bird and if there was a discrepancy,
I would study the birds some more.
Some of the birds came within several
feet of me, but most of the study was
done through binoculars," Miss
Morgan said.
Miss Morgan's birds are painted
approximately lifesize, and their
color, she pointed out, changes
according to the light and the season,
often varying, too, in different mem-
bers of the same species.
The watercolors in the main li-
brary may be seen Monday through
Saturday from 9:30 a.m. through
8 p.m. The museum in the Civil
Affairs Building is open 'round the

Weekly Tours

To San Bias

Isles Slated
This year, as every year since 1953,
the JWB Armed Forces Service
Center in Balboa will sponsor a series
of 1-day guided tours to the colorful
San Blas Islands. Departure dates
show a trip each weekend during the
dry season.
The trip involves a short flight to
Mandinga, then a 20-minute walk
along a jungle trail followed by a
ride in native piraguas (dugout
canoes) to a waiting launch which
will make stops at three islands for
picture taking and mola buying. The
stop for lunch is at Pico Feo.
Other trips on the JWB agenda
include a 1-day excursion to the
Darien jungle, near the Colombian
border, and a 2-day escorted trip
"Around Panama" which covers the
Interior of the Republic and involves
traveling by air, boat, train, and bus.
Schedules of these dry season
excursions may be obtained from
Mrs. Bea Weinstock at the JWB,

El Campeonato Mundial Ortiz-Laguna Apasiona a la Opinion Publica

De un canto al otro del Istmo de Panama el
tema obligado de las conversaciones es la pr6xi-
ma dispute por el campeonato peso ligero del
mundo que ha de celebrarse en el Estadio Olim-
pico de Panama el sabado 13 de febrero en-
trante. Raz6n principal del inusitado interns en
ese encuentro por el titulo mundial radica en el
hecho de que un pligil panamefio que centra-
liza la admiraci6n de todos sus connacionales,
Ismael Laguna, tendrA al fin la oportunidad de
coronarse campe6n mundial, despues de haber
figurado como principal retador en las dos cate-
gorias inmediatamente inferiores, pluma y gallo.
El idolo de la fanaticada istmefia ha visto
truncadas sus esperanzas dos veces ya, a pesar
de su sorprendente y admirable proeza de abrir-
se paso hasta la cumbre a pufietazos tanto entire
los gallos mas gallos como entire los plumas mas
desplumados. Pero ni Eder Jofre ni much
menos Ultiminio Ramos se sintieron con sufi-
ciente Animo y coraje como para enfrentarse al

-0 0

Ram6n "Curro" Dosman, entrenador del idolo del pugilismo panameiio,
ajusta los guantes a Ismael Laguna antes de iniciarse una de las movidas
sesiones de entrenamiento del retador a la Corona Mundial de los Ligeros.
"No defraudar6 a la afici6n," fue cuanto dijo en su sencillez el colonense.

Quien da la oportunidad a Laguna es el puer-
torriquefio Carlos Ortiz, rey de los pesos livianos
y-como Laguna-un fajador a todo dar.
Se trata, pues, de un encuentro en que ni se
darA ni se pedira cuartel; solamente golpes y
mas golpes hasta que uno de los gladiadores
result vencido.
Esta sera la primera vez que se dispute un
campeonato mundial en Panama y se espera que
converjan hacia el Istmo fanaticos de Colombia,
Centro Amirica y Puerto Rico a presenciar el
formidable encuentro Ortiz-Laguna.
Los precious de admisi6n seran: ringside (filas
del nfimero 1 al 4) $50; ringside (filas del 5 al 8)
$35; ringside (filas del 9 hasta la iltima) $25,
todos numerados; bleachers $15 y entrada
general $5.
Los boletos de ringside pueden separarse
Ilamando al Sr. Jorge Dawson a los tel6fonos:
Panama 3-7400 o 3-1272 en la Cerveceria Nacio-
nal. Los boletos se pondran a la venta desde hoy.

Autom6vil Duryea model 1893

ia rarrrma t l I5
CASI NADIE recuerda como testigo presencial -excepci6n
hecha de los abueletes octogenarios para arriba- la primer ca-
rrera de autom6viles celebrada en Francia en 1895. Pepe nos
dice que el primer motor a gasoline acababa de estrenarse. La
carrera supuso un recorrido de unos 1400 kil6metros. El ganador
pas6 la line de llegada a "la bArbara" velocidad de 24 k/h.
Esto es nada hoy comparado con el record de 650 k/h conse-
guido por un coche a reacci6n en un lago salad de EUA.
Se admira uno del fabuloso progrcso de los medios mecAnicos
de transport que se han desarrollado en los 61timos cincuenta
anos. Desde el autom6vil hasta los cohetes espaciales.
Sin embargo, la velocidad no se pudo lograr hasta que se
consiguieron condiciones de seguridad. El ferrocarril s61o pudo
aumentar la velocidad de las locomotoras despues de descubrirse
un acero mas resistente para las vias, un sistema de seiales y
de cambio de vias mas seguro, etc.
La historic del autom6vil tambien esti marcada por hitos de
seguridad. Mejores frenos, direcci6n hidraulica, cristales inastilla-
bles, carrocerias de acero liviano, faros potentes, etc.
En la industrial la evoluci6n y el progress de los vehiculos
tambi6n ha sido precedida por el incremento de los factors de
seguridad y prevenci6n de accidents. Los acordonados, pasama-
nos, barandales, puentes, plataformas, luces de advertencia, cam-
panillas, bocinas, etc., protegen a los trabajadores de los vehicu-
los en movimiento. No obstante, la mejor precauci6n esta en uno
mismo. Hay que reconocer los peligros del trabajo cerca de
vehiculos en movimiento. Anticipar los riesgos y adoptar pre-
cauciones es lo que evita una lesi6n. Mant6ngase alerta y nunca
se coloque en sitios confinados donde una miquina le pueda
atrapar. *

La mayoria de los estadouniden-
ses aceptan sin titubear el califica-
tivo de "Padre de su Patria" apli-
cado a Jorge Washington. Pero
dquien se lo confirid?
La referencia mds antigua apa-
rece en el Nord Americanische
Kalender, almanaque alemdn pu-
blicado en Lancaster, Pennsilva-
nia, en 1779.

En la parte superior de la por-
tada aparece una figure de la Fama
con una trompeta en una mano y
una efigie titulada "Washington"
en la otra. De la bocina de la trom-
peta surge la frase Des Lander
Vater-El Padre de su Patria.

toria Americana de George
Stimpson. Harper & Row, Inc.)

Cupas, miembro del personal de la
Oficina de Informaci6n del Canal
de PanamA, alternarA con el mun-
dialmente famoso Buck Canel en
la transmisi6n radial de la pelea
de Ismael Laguna y el puertorri-
quefio Carlos Ortiz.

Ala, Esto si es Pala
Una pala mecanica de minas en el
oeste de Kentucky puede mover tie-
rra, arboles y rocas a un ritmo double
de lo que hicieron por afio las 77
palas que cavaron el Canal 'de
Saca 173 toneladas de cada palada,
cava alrededor de unos 600 pies
diaries y se mueve para vaciar la
carga a mas de 400 pies de distancia.
Es operada solamente por un hombre
sentado en una caseta de control con
aire acondicionado, -ventanales y a
una altura de unos cinco pisos. El
aguil6n de la torre de la pala es tan
alta como un edificio de 20 pisos.
Construida hace 3 afios, la pala
esta trabajando en la mina Peabody
Coal Company's Sinclair. El terreno
del cafi6n que esta cavando es una
veta de 6 pies de carb6n.

Estas mamparas se colocan en la Piscina de Paraiso para acortar la distancia
a 25 yards en los events de nataci6n que se celebran en la misma. Las
mamparas son removibles, pero se necesitan 8 horas para armarlas y el
mismo tiempo para desarmarlas.

Expone Acuarelas

En la Biblioteca

Museo de la Zona
Una exhibici6n de 45 acuarelas
de la pintora Lois Morgan, estAn ac-
tualmente en exhibici6n en la Biblio-
teca de la Zona del Canal. La expo-
sici6n es parte de una series de pin-
turas de aves tropicales del Istmo de
PanamA; de fondo se utiliza la flora
Esta es la segunda vez que parte
de estas acuarelas son exhibidas ya
que lo fueron con anterioridad en
el museo hace 3 aios. Se han aiia-
dido algunas acuarelas nuevas en
atenci6n a la demand popular por
admirar estas obras de la artist
Morgan. No se ha fijado fecha para
la clausura de esta exposici6n.
La Srta. Morgan funge de maestra
en la Escuela Intermedia de Diablo
Heights; desde 1947 dicta catedras
de ciencias, arte, asuntos sociales y
matematicas en la Zona del Canal.
Egresada de la Universidad de su
estado natal, de Toledo, Estados
Unidos, la Srta. Morgan estudi6 en
el Museo de Arte de Toledo y tom6
un curso de 10 semanas en acuarelas
de Eliot O'Hara en Goose Rocks
Beach, Maine. Ha pintado y dibu-
jado "toda la vida" y tambi6n ha
trabajado en cerAmica, aunque se
inclina mAs por la acuarela.


Revolucion en las Matemaiticas

Una revoluci6n se perfila en las
matemticas a traves del Istmo. Nada
de eso de 1+1=2. Los estudiantes
de la escuela primaria hoy en dia
conocen del manejo del Abaco, la
tabla aritm6tica para contar de origen
El trascendental cambio en el
program escolar implantado en la
primaria por la Divisi6n de Escuelas
de la Zona del Canal ha causado
enorme asombro entire la poblaci6n
adulta, ya que desde los tiempos de
Euclides, no se registra tan radical
transformaci6n en la ensefianza de
la matematica elemental.
El cambio empez6 a introducirse
en 1952 cuando el matemitico Max
Beberman, de la Universidad de
Illinois, y otros observaron que por
150 afios en nada se habia mejorado
el m6todo de ensefiar las matemA-
ticas. Y se inici6 un movimiento que
cada dia gana mAs cuerpo, al punto
que el Estado de Tejas ya ha asig-
nado 30,000 maestros al aprendi-
zaje de la nueva matemAtica y Cali-
fornia invertirA este afio $10 millones
en los nuevos textos para su
Muchos maestros de la Zona del
Canal han viajado a Estados Unidos
a tomar cursos de capacitaci6n que
les permitan aprender c6mo ensefiar

matemiticas en la modern forma;
otros han aprovechado cursos ofre-
cidos en la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal y por la Divisi6n de
William Garber, director del
Fuerte Kobbe y Cocoli dict6 dos
cursos; Mrs. Theresa F. Moore, cate-
dritica especializada en matemAti-
cas y ciencias, estA dictando un curso
sobre el nuevo m6todo en la Uni-
versidad de la Zona del Canal.
El nfasis de la formula modern

es interesar al estudiante en descu-
brir y apreciar estructuras, normas
y continuidad. Para ello se establece
el balance adecuado en memorizar
metodos, reglas y datos y, por otro
lado estimular la capacidad de racio-
cinio del escolar.
La finalidad primordial es erradi-

implanten estos nuevos metodos de
ensefianza de las matemrticas.
