More Light

Beamed on

Lock Walls
A little more light on the subject
is being provided these days by the
Panama Canal towing locomotives
for ships which pass through the
Canal at night.
On an experimental basis, the
lighting system is installed on towing
locomotives in one lane of each of
the three sets of locks. The lights,
extending from the locomotives out
over the lock walls, throw beams of
light onto the vertical side of the
lock wall, an area previously without
So far, the experiments are being
carried out with ships of 60 or more
feet in beam. If the idea is adopted,
the lighting will be useful mainly for
ships of more than 80 feet in beam.
Pilots guiding ships through the
Canal at night have expressed con-
cern over the lack of visibility on the
inside of the lock chambers when the
water level is down. This is one of
the main reasons that the larger ships
of 80 feet or more beam are not being
transited through the Canal locks at
With the recent increase in traffic,
Canal authorities believe that it
would be to the advantage of both
shipping and the Canal if some of
the big customers could be scheduled
for passage through the locks by
night as well as by day.
Illumination of the Canal locks
from the locks walls and the
approaches to the locks from the
banks was installed a few years ago
as part of an overall plan to increase
the capacity of the Panama Canal.
If the mule lighting plan is success-
ful, all Canal towing locomotives will
be equipped with lights.


Workshop Set

For Saturday
Prof. W. Robert Houston of
Michigan State University, who will
arrive on the Isthmus from El Salva-
dor, will conduct a 1 day workshop
on modern mathematics at Balboa
High School Saturday. Principals and
teachers of mathematics in the Canal
Zone U.S. elementary and junior
high schools will be in his audience.
The meeting, in Room 313 of
Balboa High School, will open at
9 a.m. and continue through the day.
Professor Houston received his
bachelor of science and master of
education degrees at North Texas
State College, and his doctor of edu-
cation degree from the University
of Texas in 1961.
He has taught in New Mexico and
Texas and has been principal of two
schools in Texas. From 1960 to 1961
he was research associate, Depart-
ment of Curriculum and Instruction,
University of Texas. He also was
television instructor and educational
consultant for a mathematics in-
service education series, Austin pub-
lic schools, and educational consul-
tant in the Dallas and San Antonio
public schools.
From 1961 to 1963 he was assist-
ant professor, then associate profes-
sor and is now visiting professor in
the College of Education, Michigan
State University.
He is the author and co-author of
a number of books on mathematics.

Extending out over the lock wall on an arm attached to the towing locomotive, the light travels with the loco-
motive and illuminates the dark sides of the locks wall as an aid to Panama Canal pilots.

Assistance Asked

On Facts, Photos

Of SS Roosevelt
Remember the SS Roosevelt? This
is the vessel which took Admiral
Robert E. Peary to the North Pole
region in 1909. Information and
photographs of her are needed.
Many who resided here in the late
1930s may recall that the Roosevelt
was foundering in the Caribbean
and that it was towed by the Panama
Canal tug Tavernilla to Balboa Shops
for possible drydocking and thence
to Cristobal. This ended the days of
the ship, for she was beached and
later broken up. Her remains have
been located in the old French canal,
Mount Hope.
Desired particularly are photo-
graphs of the Roosevelt passing
through the locks and while she was
in the old French canal. Any inter-
esting facts in regard to the ship and
her stay here will be appreciated, too.
The information is being sought by
Julius Grigore, Jr., Assistant Chief,
Industrial Division, Box 5046, Cris-
tobal. He is at work preparing an
article on the Roosevelt.

Bocas del Toro Tour

Development Venture

Things are happening in Bocas del
With the aid of Peace Corps vol-
unteers, a group of local leaders is
setting the stage for a tourist boom
in this island paradise on the Atlantic
coast of Panama.
As an opening gun in the tourism
development program the group is
offering an all-inclusive, 3-day tour
from Panama or David at bargain
basement prices the weekend of
May 14.
Including round trip air transpor-
tation, hotel accommodations, meals,
a moonlight cruise with dancing and
beverages, skin diving and water
skiing, the fun-filled long weekend
is pegged at only $36.
The excursion plane leaves Tocu-
men Airport at 7 a.m. Friday, May 14
and departs from Bocas del Toro on
the return trip at the same time
Monday morning (May 17). For those
who can't spare the time, there will
be special flights returning to Panama
on Sunday-and the price of the
package is cut to $33.
Clear Caribbean waters are a spe-
cial attraction for skin-divers. Spear-
guns, masks flippers and air tanks
are available. And there is a com-
pressor in case you run out of air.

The tourist development program
is the pet project of Tony Masso and
Neal Jacobs, the Peace Corps volun-
teers assigned to that area. They
interested local businessmen in
forming a cooperative to run the
tours. The group is composed of
Francisco Artola, Alvaro Koo and
Juan Chen Lam, with Masso and
Jacobs as enthusiastic advisers.
As a trial balloon, the cooperative
offered a similar tour for all Peace
Corps volunteers in the Republic
early this month. Success of the pro-
ject sparked the enthusiasm of local
residents and the potential of Bocas
del Toro as a tourist resort was
Forty-five volunteers joined the
experimental tour and immediately
became promoters of Bocas del Toro
in their own areas.

"King and I"

UF Benefit

"The King and I" has been chosen
as the 1965 Canal Zone United Fund
benefit production. Opening night
will be Wednesday, July 28.
The producer will be Bruce Quinn,
who has scored two major successes
with ambitious productions in the
past. In the summer of 1963 he was-
the producer of The Theatre Guild's
smash hit "South Pacific." He re-
peated and surpassed that success in
1964 when he was producer of
"Oklahoma!" the first Canal Zone
United Fund benefit play. "Okla-
homa!" broke all attendance records
and was seen by 4,500 people.
Tryouts for some 50 roles in "The
King and I" will start the week of
June 14.
The play will open July 28 and
will run through Saturday, August 7,
except for August 1, when there will
be no performance.



The much publicized live atten-
uated Enders vaccine to protect chil-
dren against measles is available in
limited supply through the six Com-
munity Health Centers. The vaccine
will be given to children between
15 months and kindergarten age who
have not had regular so-called "hard"
A child of any age who has a
chronic health problem such as heart
disease or kidney disease and who
presents a request from a Canal Zone
physician may receive the vaccine
provided certain simple established
criteria are met.
The measles vaccine is admin-
istered with gamma globulin which
prevents or decreases side effects
such as fever and a measles-like rash
which some children develop on the
5th, 6th or 7th day after the vaccine
is given. The measles vaccine is
believed to give the same solid, life-
long immunity that a real case of
measles confers. This vaccine does
not protect against 3 day or German

Savings Bond Campaign

Offers Purchase Options

The U.S. Savings Bond Campaign
for 1965-this year known as The
Star-Spangled Savings Plan For All
Americans-begins May 1 and will
continue until the end of the month.
Every Canal employee will be given
an opportunity to participate, either
as a new subscriber or by increasing
present investments.
This automatic and systematic
savings plan offers two options for
savings bonds through payroll deduc-
tions: a single bond in one pay period
or a bond to be paid in five pay
Approximately 3,990 Canal em-
ployees are enrolled in the U.S.
Savings Bond Program for a total
investment of $146,500 each month.
These bonds earn a guaranteed 3/4
percent interest and are not subject
to market fluctuations. Bonds will be
replaced if stolen, lost or destroyed;
and they provide a source of ready

cash if needed anytime after 60 days
from the date issued. Bonds are
exempt from State and local taxes.
U.S. citizen employees purchasing
U.S. saving bonds by payroll deduc-
tion, and who have designated a
dependent adult or minor or other
U.S. citizen as owner, co-owner or
beneficiary, will be required to fur-
nish Social Security account num-
bers in each case. Application forms
for requesting a U.S. Social Secu-
rity number may be obtained
from Personnel Records-Administra-
tive Branch, Personnel Bureau, Build-
ing 366, Ancon; telephone 2-1525.
Letters from Lt. Cov. David S.
Parker will be sent to all employees
on May 1 inviting them to participate
in the campaign. Savings bond unit
representatives will explain the pro-
gram and assist employees in
becoming new subscribers or increas-
ing savings bonds investments.

Two old friends met again at the Chorrera Fair when Mrs. David S. Parker,
wife of the Lieutenant Governor of the Canal Zone, visited the exhibit of
Mrs. Diana Chiari de Gruber, foremost exponent of Panamanian native art.
Mrs. Gruber and Mrs. Parker have worked together on many projects
designed to further various art techniques among Girl Scouts and other
groups. An enthusiastic participant in civic activities, Mrs. Gruber has
specialized in creative art featuring pre-Columbian and contemporary
motifs. Her specialties are weaving, decorated "bateas," pottery and
ceramics. Mrs. Parker has aided in many of her civic projects by helping
to obtain yarn and other materials.

Mancha and Gato again boosted their popularity with the small fry at the Chorrera Fair last week. A steady
stream of children lined up for rides on the Summit Gardens burros at the fifth annual fair, held April 22-25.
The Panama Canal exhibit, consisting of the prefabricated pavillion "Kontiki," a projection tent for movie and
slide showings, and music by PanCanal organist Frank Azcirraga and his conjunto, was awarded first prize
for the "most complete exhibit." A big drawing card presented in conjunction with the Panama Canal exhibit
was a display of survival equipment by the Tropical Survival School at Albrook AFB.

such novel items as houses and air-
planes made of slapsticks, stitched
leather coin purses, model boats, and
paper flowers.
In addition there will be a wide
selection of needlework, including
embroidery, knitting, huck weaving,
pot holders, scarfs, and little dresses.
Molded figures, plastic ships and
airplanes, paper folding, and wood-
work items such as can only be pro-
duced by tiny hands and imaginative
young minds make the display even
more interesting.

With May 1 to be observed as Law
Day, U.S.A., a proclamation by Gov-
ernor Fleming notes that the freedom
and rights enjoyed by American cit-
izens are dependent upon our legal
system and are protected and main-
tained by the respect for and
obedience to law by those citizens.
Law Day, U.S.A., originated in
1958 as the United States' answer-

annual celebration of the Commu-

was established by Joint Resolution
of Congress in 1961.

Special Education

Group Meets May 5
The Special Education Association
of the Canal Zone will hold its last
meeting of the school year at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday, May 5, in the
Jewish Welfare Board Building on
La Boca Road, Balboa.
Officers for the 1965-66 term will
be elected. All members are urged
to attend and the public is cordially
invited. Refreshments will be served.

1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 15, for

Immunizations for the prevention
of smallpox, influenza, tetanus, ty-
phoid, and yellow fever will be
offered free of charge.
Persons who have not been im-
munized against influenza or who
have not received a booster injection
during the past 9 months are espe-
cially urged to come in for it. April,
May and June are the months when
"flu" and flu-like illnesses with fever
and aching are most common among
residents of the Isthmus. In order to
have adequate protection a single
booster should be taken each year.
Many persons have not received
yellow fever immunizations. A single
injection given once every 6 years is
sufficient to protect an individual
against this disease, which is con-
sidered to be endemic in jungle areas
of Central and South America.
Yellow fever is transmitted by the
bite of an infected mosquito. It is
especially important that persons
visiting jungle areas or hunting in
the Interior be immunized and pro-
tected against yellow fever. There
is no specific treatment for the disease
once it develops. Cases of yellow

La caracteristica principal de Costa
Rica estriba en que su clima y su dis-
tribuci6n demogrAfica, estan determi-
nadas por sus altas montafias y su
altiplanicie. La naci6n estA dividida
en tres regions: las planicies costeras
sobre el AtlAntico, la mesa central y
las laderas del Pacifico.

El suelo de los valles de Costa Rica
es excepcionalmente f6rtil debido a
su formaci6n volcAnica, depositada
durante pasadas centuries. Costa Rica
cuenta con muchos volcanoes, entire los
que descuella el Iraz6i, de 11,257 pies
de altura; el PoAs alcanza 8,872 pies
y tiene un crater spectacular.
