Whence the Pence?
Pennies, $1,000 worth, arrived on the SS Cristobal to help alleviate
the current penny shortage on the Isthmus.
About a quarter of a million pennies were brought to the Isthmus
some 6 months ago, but those pennies have disappeared wherever pennies
and centavos go.
Residents on the Isthmus have been asked to help by turning in
pennies saved in penny banks, or other savings means.
Paper wrappers for rolls of pennies are to be made available at
Panama Canal cashiers' stands. But cashiers are receiving instructions,
too, to accept or exchange pennies for customers when requested to do
so even though the pennies are not wrapped.

The Idiocy of Our Highway

Blood Bath Burns Me Up

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This article, by
Gilbert R. Carrel, then chief of the
Colorado Highway Patrol, stirred an
amazing amount of comment when
first published in The Denver Post.
It has been reprinted many times by
many media. The trend of accident
statistics in the States and on the
Isthmus indicated it was time for a
reprint here.)

It could just be that you are the
person who wrote me that letter the
other day. You really told me off.
You said one of my dumb highway
patrolmen had given you a ticket for
speeding when you had a legitimate
reason for being in a hurry.
According to your letter, which
you didn't sign, you think the high-
way patrol could make better use of
its time by chasing down the real
menaces to safety on the highways
instead of bothering upstanding cit-
izens like yourself.
Oh, you were quite indignant. You
went on to say that you were on
urgent business, that you never had
been in an accident of your own
making; that you are a fast driver
but a safe driver and, moreover, that
you are a more important man to
the community than the stupid cop
who gave you the ticket.

Happy We Caught You

Well, now, let me tell you some-
thing. I'm mad, too. I'm mad all the
time although my anger is not
directed at you alone. So far as you're
concerned, I'm happy that we were
able to catch you in time. I hope
we taught you a lesson, although
I'm afraid we didn't. I hope we
taught you something before you
have to learn it the hard way in a
hospital, or you wind up on a morgue
It makes me feel good that we
were able to slow you down before
you killed yourself-or maimed some-
body else who was driving carefully
to protect both himself and you, tool

What makes me mad? A lot of '
things. I'm burned up because people -

Officer Insolent?

And yet a great many who are
responsible for this terrible loss of
life and limb and lifelong suffering
are individuals like yourself-"fast"
but "safe" drivers and "important"
people in a big hot hurry.
You said the officer who gave you
the ticket didn't argue with you but
that his manner was insolent.

500 yards from the point at which
you said the patrolman stopped you.

Dead Don't Complain

If that patrolman had been there
and cautioned that woman before she
hit that ice patch at 75 miles per
hour, she would still be here; her
children would have the affection of
their mother, and a husband would
have been spared unnecessary grief
and cost.
Maybe she would have written
a letter of complaint, too. But
I wouldn't have cared. It's only the
dead ones who don't complain.

personal reason for being mad. "I'll

his head on the prairie a hundred
feet away.
It's better to be alive and mad, or
alive and late than dead and still in
a hurry. That was the case when the
salesman a few months ago rounded
a curve on Highway 87-85. He was
on an important call, but he never
kept his appointment. We picked his
head off the paving and scraped his
body together from beneath his auto-
mobile. Are sales that important?
You'll never collect the commission
that way. Neither will your widow.

Dual Personalities

The trouble with so many drivers
is that they have dual personalities.
Too often, a highly respected busi-
nessman, a gentleman in his profes-
sion and a social leader in the com-
munity, becomes a dangerous egotist
behind the wheel. The respect he
normally displays for his fellow cit-
izens becomes submerged in a con-
viction of superiority arising from his
control of 2 tons of steel and 150 or
200 horsepower. He blows his horn at
pedestrians or drivers who threaten

"I Hate Myself"

I went home the other night sad-
dened. I had listened to a father
blubbering like a baby. The last
time I talked to'him before that, he
was lecturing me. His son was a good
driver, he said. Sure, weaving in and
out of traffic, digging out on the
Well, we had picked up the boy
on two occasions and we were ready
to ground him for keeps. Then before
we could do it, the serious smashup
that we had anticipated happened.
The boy's body was wheeled out of
the operating room to the morgue
when the boy's father broke down
and cried: "I killed my own son
trying to prove that I was right.
I hate myself."
Let me ask you: Do you believe
we should allow some idiot to risk
your life and the lives of your family
members just because he wants to
be there in time for the kickoff?
Would we be doing our duty in
letting him off with just a few words

to interfere with his lordly progress. of warning?

Whatever lane he chooses in his
exclusive property, and sometimes he
takes parts of two lanes. He picks
any speed that suits his fancy.
He is too big to be anything but
contemptuous of the traffic officer
who questions his driving ability. His
favorite retort is: "I'll have your job

Retiring Postmaster

Has 45 Years' Service

Spaghetti-eaters contributed $210 to Project SS HOPE and a check in that
amount was presented by Janice Wilson, Worthy Advisor, Ancon Assembly
No. 3, Order of Rainbow for Girls, to Glenn W. Porter, acting mission chief
for CARE in Panama, who accepted the check on behalf of Project SS HOPE.
Janice, whose mother is a Panama Canal telephone operator and her father,
Leroy B. Wilson, Jr., a lock operator, saw a film on the work of the SS HOPE.
Janice was so impressed she, in turn, roused the enthusiasm of the Ancon
Rainbow Girls Assembly. They sponsored a benefit spaghetti supper and
the proceeds amounted to the $210 in the check for Project SS HOPE. This
project is one of four represented in the Federal Service Joint Crusade
in the Canal Zone.


Seventeen Panama Canal em-
ployees retired from service in the
organization during the past month.
Those still on the Isthmus received
their retirement certificates from

icans" for the years they have given
toward carrying on Canal operations,
and expressed his personal apprecia-

Arthur L. Endicott, who started
his U.S. Government service at the
age of 12 when he ran away from
home and joined the Navy, retires
this month as Postmaster, Cristobal,
with nearly 45 years' Government
service behind him.
His Canal service totals 29 years,
11 months, 20 days and has all been
in the Postal Division. He has held
positions in the post offices on both
sides of the Isthmus, and received
an outstanding performance rating
last August.
But one of his proudest possessions
is a document presented him, signed
by 545 employees in the Panama
Canal's Administration Building,
Balboa Heights, as well as other
people who do their mailing business
at the Balboa Heights Post Office, at
the time he was transferred to the
Atlantic side.
"Always courteous, cheerful and
helpful, Andy has made the Post
Office a bright spot in our daily
working hours. We will miss him

Nurse Groups

Plan Joint

A tour of the new Gorgas Hospital
Annex and a partial transit of the
Panama Canal are among the events
planned by Canal Zone nurses,
through the Isthmian Nurses Asso-
ciation of the Canal Zone, in a joint
celebration with the Asociaci6n Na-
cional de Enfermeras de Panama of
Nurses' Week May 10 to 16. In Pan-
ama City a Congress for Nurses is to
be held at the University of Panama
during the week.
The partial transit of the Canal,
on May 11, will be preceded by a
visit to Miraflores Locks from 3:45
to 4:45 p.m. The nurses will board
the Panama Canal launch Las Cru-
ces at 5 p.m. for the Canal trip.
The Panama nurses will meet at
the new Gorgas Hospital Annex
Wednesday, May 12, at 10:30 a.m.
for the hospital visit. Miss E. Made-
leine Shaw, Chief of Nursing Serv-
ices, will speak on "Administration
of Nursing Services."
Mrs. Betty Sutton is president of
the Nurses Association of the Canal
Mrs. Cecilia Grimaldo is president
of the Asociaci6n Nacional de En-
fermeras de Panami and is a mem-
ber of the nurses' teaching staff at
Santo Tomais Hospital in Panama
City. She was the first nurse to re-
ceive a master's degree in nursing
from the University of Panama.

160 PC Employees

Helping Savings

Bond Sales Drive
The annual savings bonds cam-
paign is now under way for the entire
month of May. Notifications have
been sent to all Canal organization
employees. A memorandum also has
been sent to all units for circulation
notifying all employees who their
particular unit representative is.
One-hundred and sixty sales rep-
resentatives have been designated by
bureau directors to assist employees.
These savings bonds representatives
will be glad to assist you in becoming
a new subscriber or increasing your
present savings bonds investments.
They will help you in filling out the
applications for purchasing bonds
through payroll deduction and send
your application to the bond clerk
at the Treasurer's office.
There is no better way to save

very much, but we are sure that he
will brighten the lives of many
people on the Atlantic side," the
document says.
While he was still in the Navy he
had his first look at the Isthmus of
Panama, and liked what he saw. In
1925 he started work in the postal
service and, when he had an oppor-
tunity to transfer, made a mutual
trade, coming to the Canal Zone from
San Diego. In those days, he said,
such transfers were permitted.
In August of this year he would
have completed 45 years' Govern-
ment service and by retiring in May
he misses his 30-year Canal service
button by 10 days.
His service started at Cristobal and
terminated at Cristobal. He started
as a postal clerk, then was promoted
to postmaster and, in 1960, to
Finance Branch superintendent.
Prior to leaving the Isthmus, Mr.
and Mrs. Endicott were honored at
a retirement party given by more
than 100 postal employees at the
Albrook Officers' Club. He was pres-
ented a watch and Mrs. Endicott
was given a pair of native filigree

En 1964 se registraron en PanamA 5,939 accidents de transito, segin cifras preliminares proporcionadas por la
Secci6n de Estadisticas Sociales de la Contraloria General de la Repuiblica, que resultaron en 129 muertes.

Es preferible estar vivo y enojado

el caso de un vendedor que hace
unos meses se mato en una curva en
la Carretera 87-85. El acudia a aten-

Doble Personalidad
El gran problema con muchos con-
ductores es que 6stos tienen double
personalidad. Muy a menudo, un muy
respetado hombre de negocios, un ca-
ballero en su profesi6n, un dirigente
en su comunidad se convierte en un
peligroso egoista tras el tim6n de su
auto. El respeto que generalmente de-
muestra hacia sus conciudadanos se
torna en un complejo de superioridad
basado en el control que ejerce sobre
sus 2 toneladas de acero y 200 caba-
llos de fuerza. Toca la bocina a pea-
tones y conductores cuando astos
tratan de meters en su via.

Se consider siempre muy por en-
cima del pobre agent de trAnsito que
no hace mAs que cumplir con su
deber, y goza enormemente cuando
le dice a 6ste que lo va a dejar sin
empleo como interfiera en sus asuntos.


La otra noche me fui triste a la
casa. Habia oido a un padre llori-
queando como un nene. Pocos dias
antes me habia reprendido porque le
aconsej6 que no le permitiera mane-
jar a su hijo: "Mi hijo es muy buen
chofer," me replic6: Seguro, condu-

nosotros arrestamos al muchacho un

quitarle el permiso para conducir.
Pero, antes que lo hici6ramos, el acci-
dente que habiamos previsto, ocurri6.

Entonces, 8qu6 espera usted que
sea un policia? dEs su deseo que los
patrulleros sean un grupo de ama-
