Dr. Woodring explained why the
discovery here is important to geolo-

different from South American mam-
mals of the same epoch and this find
supports the proposition that North

Art Show

Balboa will be full of artists and
art Saturday when scores of Isthmian
artists join to exhibit their work at
the first annual outdoor art show
sponsored by the Canal Zone and
Panama Branch of the National
League of American Penwomen. The
show will be open from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m.
So many artists have announced
their intention of participating that
the show, first planned for Stephens
Circle, has been extended to the south
end of Balboa Prado.
Watercolors, ink drawings, prints,
and smaller work will be hung from
clothes lines extended between the
palm trees on the Prado. Larger oil
paintings and other heavy items will
be displayed in the Stephens Circle
Visitors with a sidewalk super-
intendent complex will be able to
watch artists at work as well as
inspect the finished products. Mrs.
Char Miller, art teacher at the Balboa
YMCA, will paint watercolors. Mrs.
Diana Chiari de Gruber, noted Pan-
amanian folk artist, will demonstrate
weaving on a handmade loom. Roger
Vail, a professional artist, whose one-
man show opens February 20 at the
Panama Art Institute, will demon-
trate his technique of portrait
Free coffee will be served during
the morning by members of the Pen-
women's League and visitors are
invited to browse, shop, or chat with
the artists at their leisure.

Twenty-million year old jaw of an oreodont, a primitive North American
mammal, was among the geological discoveries made during cut-widening
work at Cucaracha Reach. The marsh pick, which is about a foot long, points
up the size of the jaw of this Miocene epoch animal, a remote relative of
the sheep family.


Star-Studded Show

Opens Sunday Night

A brilliant, dry season night sky
display of constellations and stars will
be seen by stargazers who visit the
Canal Zone Observatory at Miraflores
on Sunday and Tuesday nights start-
ing Sunday, February 14.
At the observatory, which will be
open to the public Sundays and
Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. during
the rest of the dry season, local res-
idents will be able to see, as outstand-
ing performers, Sirius, the brightest
star in the heavens, and Betelgeuse,
one of the tremendous real giant stars,
a star of first magnitude.
The constellations of Orion, Gem-
ini, and Canis Major will be clearly
discernible. The North Star, always
about 9 above the northern horizon,
will be a familiar sight to observatory
The Canal Zone Observatory, pop-
ular with adults and children during
the dry season, is under the auspices
of the Canal Zone Division of Schools.
The large planet, Jupiter, will be
one of the major objects of interest.
Also visible through the telescope will
be 4 of Jupiter's 12 moons. Jupiter is
the largest of the planets revolving
around.the sun, about 11 times the
earth's diameter. The shaded mark-
ings on this planet, the cloud belts,
appear as parallel bands stretching

across the disc. Jupiter and its moons
present in the telescope a fascinating,
orderly miniature of the solar system.
Earth's moon also is visible and,
because it is so near, dominates the
sky with reflected sunlight. When
viewed through the telescope, its
surface is covered with mountains,
valleys, craters, and plains.
Mars, the planet that appears red
in color, is visible in the eastern sky
during the later evening hours. It will
be brightest for observing during
March, when it rises as the sun sets.
These objects, as well as visible
star constellations, meteors, and
nebulae will be described in lectures
to visitors at the Canal Zone Observ-
atory by J. W. Seaquist, Balboa High
School science teacher, and B. J.
Brown, of the Panama Canal Engi-
neering Division.

Link with 20 Million Years Ago

Fossils of animals that roamed the
Isthmus about 20 million years ago,
discovered here as a result of the cut-
widening work at Cucaracha Reach,
provided another missing link in
geological history.
So important is the new find that
Dr. Frank Whitmore, geologist with
the U.S. Geological Survey, and Dr.
W. P. Woodring, research associate
with the Smithsonian Institution,
Washington, D.C., came to the Canal
Zone to see for themselves.

Lake Levels

Mean Extra

Draft Bonus
Despite the early onset of the dry
season on December 2, followed by
one of the driest Decembers on
record, Gatun Lake is holding its
own and the big ships using the
Panama Canal have been able to take
advantage of an extra draft bonus.
The 39-foot maximum draft allow-
ance for certain sized ships has been
reduced only once, when the Naviga-
tion Division limited it to 38 feet
6 inches early in January. At that
time it was pointed out that the 39-
foot allowance was 1 foot deeper than
in effect at the onset of the dry season
last year.
While the levels of both Gatun
and Madden Lakes dropped sharply
in December, the general rains
brought to the Isthmus in January
by cold weather and storms in the
United States kept the lake levels
By the end of the first week in
February, the level of Gatun Lake,
which started the dry season at 87.28
feet, was down to 86.11, or slightly
above the level reported at the same
date last year.
According to current ,estimates
made on the basis of the rule curve
of average drop in lake levels during
the normal dry season conditions, the
elevation of Gatun Lake will go down
approximately .038 foot a day from
now on.
The Navigation Division has
announced that in view of the present
fall of Gatun Lake level, vessels
arriving at the Canal for transit
between February 20 and March 5
will be limited to a maximum tropical
fresh water draft of 38 feet.


Caught by Fluke

It was by a fluke that Grace Line's
luxury liner Santa Paula came up
with a muzzle-loader. Weighing
anchor in the harbor of Port-au-
Prince, Haiti, surprised seamen found
a coral-encrusted cannon caught on
the Paula's anchor.
Later, the carefully cared-for
museum piece was identified as
belonging to the era of George III
of England and linked to the Haitian
Wars of Liberation of the late 18th

service-fitness for effective living
implies freedom from disease; enough
strength, agility, endurance, and skill
to meet the demands of daily living;
sufficient reserves to withstand ordi-
nary stresses without causing harmful
strain; and mental development and
emotional adjustment appropriate to
the maturity of the individual.
No "Package" Deal
Fitness does not come in a "have"
or "not have" package. The level of
fitness attained is a result of ability
to cope with the varied and inter-
acting stresses of life. Optimal fitness
permits enjoying life to the fullest.
In addition to the day's ordinary
work requirements, one should still
have enough vitality to enjoy avoca-
tional interests and to meet special
challenges that may interrupt the
daily routine. In emergencies of
various types, sudden, and unusual
physical demands may be laid upon
individuals and groups. The posses-
sion of physical strength, agility, and
endurance may enable the individual
or group to survive, while the lack
of fitness may spell catastrophe.
The extent to which the individual
develops his own potential for fitness

depends upon his daily living prac-
tices and exercise habits. Adequate
nutrition, sufficient rest and relaxa-
tion, suitable work, appropriate
medical and dental care, and the
practice of moderation are also
important in maintaining fitness.
Major Emphasis
This report, however, is inten-
tionally limited to the contribution
of exercise in the total program of
fitness. Points of special emphasis
are: first, that the body is responsive
to training; and second, that the body
operates under wide margins of
safety and is remarkably resistant to
Increased availability of labor-
saving machinery and easy modes of
transportation have changed modern
living. As a result, more and more
persons tend to lead a sedentary exist-
ence. The increased leisure time that
accompanied these changes can be
merely a continuation of this seden-
tary existence or it can be the oppor-
tunity for regular, enjoyable exercise.

Fossil Finds Fill Gap in History

ment of strata of the Canal Zone the
last 20 years. He first came here as
a geologist on the U.S. Geological
Survey, and although he retired 3
years ago he has kept on with his
research work. All his professional
life he has been interested in the
Caribbean region, but he is especially
intrigued by the fossil mammals here,
a find unique for all Central America.
About 1945, the end of a rhino-
ceros leg bone was found in the
Culebra Beach area, but that was
as nothing to compare with the
present finds.
Besides the jaw and other remains
of an oreodont, bones and teeth have
been found of a deerlike animal that
had protuberances on the forehead,
bones of a rhinoceros, teeth of a
horse that had three toes on the front
feet instead of one-and the com-
plete skeleton of a crocodile, minus
the head. The latter, despite being
some 20 million years old, was fairly
like the present-day crocodiles.
The 20 million-year-old jaw of the
oreodont, discovered in the Cerro
Escobar area, was very fragile and
required careful work to remove it
intact. First it had to be hardened.
A combination of shellac and a
plastic cement was used, and then

a coating of rubber applied to hold
the bones together.
In the new outcroppings exposing
La Boca formation in Las Cascadas
Reach, where work on stripping the
top off has just been finished, many
marine fossils have been found. These
fossils include minute organisms,
mollusks, sea urchins, and other
echinoids, more familiarly known as
sand dollars, and are estimated to
be about 20 million years old.
Dr. Woodring has fossil oyster
shells from the Gatun formation that
are younger but still of Miocene age.
The Gatun formation is found only
on the Caribbean side, but formerly
extended across, he said, in the age
before the present mountains were
formed. These fossil oysters are 6 to
8 inches across. One has to dive or
dredge to get their present-day living
Dr. Woodring is publishing a series
of chapters on "Geology and Paleon-

This 485-pound black marlin was landed by Ruth Krziza

A recent 11-day trip to Pifias Bay
for Leo and Ruth Krziza produced
the excitement anglers long for. It
was made on the motor launch Seri,
with Frank J. Violette, a fishing
veteran of many years.
The group raised 35 black marlin,
had 23 hooked, and caught 13.
Actually, all 13 were not boated, as
some were tagged and released.
This tagging operation is becom-
ing more and more popular and is
aimed at conserving fish. The angler
catches the marlin or Pacific sailfish,
brings the fish to the boat where a
tag is placed into it with a long pole
and then the leader is cut, freeing
the fish. It is considered an "official
catch" when the crewman grabs the
As Pacific sailfish meat is not edible
(it's dark) there is little purpose in
bringing the fish aboard unless, of
course, it is a record of some kind.
However, smoked sailfish is a delicacy
around Florida, so maybe we're
missing something. The Woods Hole

Oceanographic Institution, Woods
Hole, Mass., sponsors and promotes
the tagging of tuna, marlin, sailfish,
and amberjack in an attempt to study
the migrations of these fish.
After the fish is tagged, a card is
filled out which gives the serial num-
ber of the tag. It is mailed to Woods
Hole. Any angler catching a fish with
a tag in it who reports it to Woods
Hole will receive a $5 reward. Thus
far, no anglers have been so lucky
(in Panama) as to claim the reward,
even though some 500 fish have been
tagged by the fishing yacht Seri,
alone, during the last 3 years.
Before landing this 485 pound
black marlin, Ruth caught another
beauty, a 400 pound (estimated)
marlin which was tagged and re-
leased. The fish was very much alive
when it came to the boat, so it was
decided to release it.
This 485 pound beast of the sea
was a nice fish, said Ruth, "It took
only 33 minutes and it came in 'belly
up' dead." It was well hooked in the

gills which really hurts the fish. It did
take a lot of strain on the line to lift
the dead fish off the bottom when
it died, but the 50 pound test line
held. It isn't any record, but is a very
fine catch for 50 pound test tackle.
Asked when she was going fishing
again, she responded, "whenever the
boss says I can."
