Apartment Building

Lease To Help Ease

Housing Shortage

Apartments in a new, 34-unit
building in Panama will be available
for rental from the Canal organiza-
tion about June 1, providing legal
matters now under discussion are
wrapped up on schedule.
The Canal organization plans to
lease the entire nine-story building
on Avenue 11 d, near the Panama
Hilton Hotel. The action will help
alleviate a housing shortage on the
Pacific side of the Canal Zone.
Twenty-eight new houses for U.S.
citizen Canal organization employees
are scheduled for completion in the
Balboa area within 2 years.
Still, the housing situation is ex-
pected to remain critical, partly
because of an expanding work force,
and partly because a number of
families are currently occupying un-
satisfactory housing. More teachers
and hospital personnel are needed,
and the Canal also is recruiting a
limited number of other specialized
personnel. The Panama apartment
units will help to relieve the situation
somewhat, officials said.
The apartment building owned by

Jes6s G6mez is about completed.
One apartment on the second floor
has been furnished and is available
for inspection beginning tomorrow
(Saturday). It will be open every day
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through
May 22.
Thirty-two of the units are iden-
tical in layout, and the rent starts at
$139 a month for one of these on the
second floor. The rent increases $3
for each floor, to a maximum of $160
for an apartment on the top floor.
There are four units on each floor,
except for the first, which has two
apartments. One rents for $100, the
second for $75. The apartments are
unfurnished and utilities, except for
water, are extra. These will average
about $30, without air conditioning.
Apartments on the second through
the ninth floors have two bedrooms
with bath, plus a maid's room, which
connects to a second bath. On the
first floor, the one-bedroom apart-
ment that will rent for $75 has one
bedroom and one bath. The $100-a-
month first floor apartment has two
bedrooms and one bath.

Taped "Sound Portrait"

Of Transit Wins Prize

Ships toot.
Locomotives clang.
But what sound does the bull
wheel make when it opens the locks
The sounds that accompany the
passage of a vessel through Mira-
flores Locks have been assembled
and preserved on tape for a portrait
-in sound which won third prize
recently for Frederic J. Berest, Canal
Zone Guide (Interpreter), in a Pop-
ular Photography Magazine contest.
The tape recordings for the sound
portrait were made at Miraflores
Locks by Cleveland C. Soper, Chief
of the Panama Canal Reproduction
Branch, who assisted Berest in select-
ing the material and editing the tape.
Berest gave a commentary explain-
ing the various sounds which he then
assembled into a coordinated portrait
of a ship transiting the two chambers
of Miraflores Locks.

Since both the old and new towing
locomotives were in operation at
Miraflores when the tape was made,
the distinctive noises each type made
in operation are a highlight of the
3-minute recording.
Other sounds in addition to the
familiar clangs and toots were the
clumping of the rising stem valves
as they open the culverts, the whir
of the bull wheel, the whistle of the
ship as it completes transit, and the
ringing of the bells on the old mules.
Berest has been with the Canal
organization for the past 11 years,
first as a Canal lock guard and re-
cently as a Canal Zone guide. He
has had considerable experience in
dramatics and has directed a number
of plays produced by the Theatre
The Panama Canal portrait in
sound was his first effort in this fairly
new field. It was submitted in com-
petition with entries from all over
the United States.

Gas stoves and water heaters are
included. The floors are terazzo and
the apartments are of a functional,
modern design. Each has a balcony
and a laundry area with a clothes-
drying space. There will be addi-
tional clothes-drying areas on the
roof, which also is designed as a play
area, with protective fencing.
A parking space is reserved for

Students Show

Fitness Gain

For 5th Year

For the fifth consecutive year, chil-
dren in the Canal Zone U.S.-citizen
schools have improved in the physical
fitness tests sponsored by the Amer-
ican Association of Health, Physical
Education and Recreation.
The tests, administered in the
Canal Zone every year since their
inception in the United States in
1959, consist of sit-ups, pull-ups,
30-foot shuttle run, standing broad
jump, 50-yard dash, softball throw,
and 600-yard run and walk.
Canal Zone students now rank
higher than seven-tenths of the stu-
dents in the United States. The per-
centile averages were 71 this year,
69 last year, and 65 2 years ago.
High point in the showings were
the sit-ups, where Canal Zone stu-
dents averaged at the 83d percentile,
while the low average of the 56th
percentile was in the softball throw.
It is significant that even in the
lowest category Canal Zone students
were above average, since the aver-
age student in the United States
stands at the 50th percentile. In fact,
Canal Zone students averaged better
than two-thirds of the students in the
United States in all except two
In the Canal Zone, the "weaker
sex" appears to be stronger, because
the girls averaged higher than the
boys-and scored higher in every
category except the softball throw
and the 600-yard walk-run. It must
be indicated, however, that only
relative to the averages for their own
sex in the United States did the girls
rate higher, since the standards for
boys are different than those for girls.
From age 10 through 17, roughly
grades 5 to 12, a total of 4,300 stu-
dents in three secondary and thirteen
elementary units participated in the
Of the 4,300, gold-sealed certifi-
cates were earned by 555 students
who scored at the 90th percentile or
higher and red-sealed certificates
were earned by about 2,400 addi-
tional students who scored at the
70th percentile or better.

Panama Labeled

World Crossroads

For Industry

Panama is the "Crossroads of the
World" for industry, according to
an editorial survey of the Republic
of Panama made by Herald Latham
for the March edition of the Interna-
tional Development Manufacturers
Record received here.
The 32-page survey with pictures
of Panama and the Canal Zone,
charts and figures on investments,
population, production, and gross
national product, advertises Panama
as one of the best places to do busi-
ness in Latin America.
The author says that Panama is
determined to become even more
important as an industrial center.
"With excellent ocean and air trans-
portation, an intelligent, bilingual,
and highly trainable work force, and
plenty of natural resources, it de-
serves the closest investigation," he

Exercise P Fitness

Exercise Suggestions

EDITOR'S NOTE: Following is part of
a statement on the role of exercise in
fitness by a joint committee of the
American Medical Association and the
American Association for Health,
Physical Education, and Recreation,
endorsed by the Health Bureau and
Canal Zone Schools Division.

The following suggestions will be
useful in deriving the maximum en-
joyment and benefit from exercise.
1. A program of exercise should
be started at an early age and be
continued throughout life with cer-
tain adjustments from time to time
as life advances and needs, interests,
and capabilities change.
2. The amount of vigorous exer-
cise that is desirable each day is
largely an individual matter. Recom-
mendations range from 30 minutes
to 1 hour daily as a minimum.
3. Something of interest for every
individual can be found to make exer-
cise satisfying and enjoyable. In addi-
tion to numerous sports, the variety
of choices, includes daily habits
such as walking, bicycling, and

Fourth of a Series

4. Hard, fast, sustained, or highly
competitive games and sports should
not be played by persons of any age
unless they have attained an appro-
priate state of fitness through sys-
tematic training.
5. All persons should be shown by
medical examination to be organically
sound before training for competi-
tion or other strenuous exercise. The
examination should be repeated
periodically and whenever special
indications appear.
6. An individual in good physical
condition may appropriately partici-
pate in an activity that might be
harmful to another person of the
same age who is not in a comparable
state of fitness.
7. Persons who are out of training
should not attempt to keep pace in
any vigorous sport with persons who
are properly conditioned and accus-
tomed to regular participation in that

sport. Being in condition for one
sport does not always mean that a
person will be in condition for

8. Persons long out of training
or "soft" (who have not practiced
strenuous exercise regularly) will
need an extended period of condi-
tioning to facilitate gradual return to
full activity.

9. The ability to recover quickly
after physical activity is a good indi-
cation as to whether or not the exer-
cise is too strenuous. If breathless-
ness and pounding of the heart are
still noticeable 10 minutes after exer-
cise, if marked weakness or fatigue
persists after a 2-hour period, if a
broken night's sleep is attributable
to exercise, or if there is a sense of
definite and undue fatigue the follow-
ing day, then the exercise has been
too severe or too prolonged for that
person in his present stage of training
and physical strength.

10. Medical supervision of the
amount, type, and effect of exercise
during convalescence is essential.
11. Persons should not compete in
body contact sports or activities re-
quiring great endurance with others
of disproportionate size, strength, or
skill. If risk of injury can be con-
trolled, carefully supervised practice
periods against such odds may
occasionally be warranted as a learn-
ing device to gain experience or
improve performance.
12. Sports involving body contact
or traumatic hazards necessitate the
provision of protective equipment.
Such protection is especially impor-
tant for the head, neck, eyes, and
teeth. Other activities should be
substituted when adequate protection
cannot be provided.

13. Careful preparation and main-
tenance of playing fields and other
arenas of sports are essential to reduc-
tion of injuries and full enjoyment of
the activity. Competent supervision
and proper equipment are necessary.

He's Helping Make

BHS Track Team's

Prospects Bright

Harry Stinson, a Balboa High
School freshman, is helping to
brighten prospects for the Balboa
High School track team. In a recent
BHS freshman meet, he chalked up
28 points-five first places and one
second place-to become the out-
standing BHS freshman track man,
and take home the Outstanding
Athlete Trophy, five blue ribbons
and one red ribbon.
Stinson won the 100, 220 and 440,
high and low hurdles, and placed
second in the broad jump.
Stinson's interest in track goes
back to 1962, when he first saw the
track events at the Balboa Relays,
and decided then and there that one
day he too would participate in track
events. His sixth grade gym teacher,
Mrs. Lee Kariger, encouraged Stinson
to join an elementary school track
team, and a year later under Coach
Paul Karst at Diablo Junior High,
Stinson was becoming a fine young
Stinson also received training tips
and encouragement from Lt. Robert
Harris of Fort Kobbe, who has run
with and is a former classmate of
the world's fastest runner, Bob Hayes
of Florida A&M.
Stinson, who lives in Ancon, is the
son of Ralph Stinson, Jr., a Digital
Computer Systems Analyst in the
Comptroller's Office.

Child Under 6

Needs an Older

Escort at Movie
A child under 6 years of age may
enter a Canal Zone theater, without
charge, only when accompanied by a
responsible person who pays an
adult admission. Unaccompanied
children under 6 may not enter.
The regulation concerning un-
accompanied children under 6 in
the theaters has been in existence
for many years. According to this
ruling, children under 6 must be
accompanied by a responsible per-
son to ensure that a small child will
not be injured or killed in case of
a fire or other catastrophe during
show time; to ensure that a child will
not be molested; and to protect other
theater patrons from thoughtless loud
talking and running up and down the
aisles by the very young.
A child of 12 or over may bring
a child of 6 into the theater, as an
adult admission is charged for chil-
dren who are 12 or over. As a special
concession, during the summer mat-
inees presented especially for chil-
dren or at the so-called "kiddie
matinees" on Saturdays in certain
theaters, it has been ruled that a
child of 10 may bring in his younger
brother or sister.
This special concession was granted
as a result of many requests for the
lowering of the "responsible person"
age so that the very young could see
these matinee shows. To bring in a
child under 6, however, the indi-
vidual sponsoring him must pay the
regular adult admission.

Guatemala is known as the "Tro-
pical Switzerland" because of its
scenery, "Land of Eternal Spring"
because of its climate, and "The
Egypt of America" because of its
many statues.

Sparks Fly Fast

When 34 Typists

Try Their Speed

Sparks flew from 34 typewriters
recently as 34 Balboa High School
students competed in a speed-typing
contest sponsored by the Future
Business Leaders of America.
It was an annual contest open to
the advance typing students and was.
held in conjunction with thousands
of similar contests sponsored by the
organization all over the United
The rules were strict. The speed
test started promptly at 8:15 a.m.
when the doors to the classroom were
shut. A standard make of typewriter
was used by the contestants and the
time was checked by Irvin H. Lesser,
of the Canal Zone College business
education staff.
At the end of 12 hectic minutes,
the contest closed and papers were
collected by Lesser who sent the
results to the headquarters of the
Future Business Leaders of America
in the United States where they will
be judged with those turned in from
similar contests in all 50 States.
A local chapter of the Future Busi-
ness Leaders of America was formed
at Balboa High School a year ago
under the sponsorship of Mrs. Glen
Murphy, Balboa High School teacher.

Scholarship Committee

Sets Special Meeting

The Latin American Scholarship
Committee will hold a special meet-
ing at 4:30 p.m. today at the Civil
Affairs Building.
The committee was organized 10
years ago for the purpose of furnish-
ing scholarship aid to needy and
deserving high school graduates. Stu-
dents presently are being sponsored
at the Canal Zone College, the Pan-
ama University, and similar institu-
tions in the United States. The work
of the group has been made possible
through the donations and pledges
from friends, clubs, and organiza-
tions. So far, the major fund-raising
activity has been a yearly dance.
Plans include holding a scholar-
ship buffet and program at the Tivoli
Guest House on Friday, June 25.

Atleta Novato ma's Destacado de

La Balboa High: Harry Stinson

Harry Stinson, un estudiante de
primer afio de la Escuela Secundaria
de Balboa, estA sobresaliendo entire
los prospects del equipo de atletis-
mo del plantel. En un reciente torneo
de la escuela acumul6 28 puntos-
cinco primeros puestos y un segundo
lugar-para convertirse en el mis
destacado atleta novato de la Escue-
la Secundaria de Balboa, y llevarse
el trofeo del atleta mAs destacado,
cinco cintas azules y una roja.
Stinson gan6 las pruebas de 100,
220 y 440 yards plans, las 110
yards con obstAculos altos y las 180
yards con obstaculos bajos, y lleg6
segundo en salto largo.
El interns de Stinson en la pista
data desde 1962 cuando vio por pri-
mera vez los events de atletismo en
los Relevos de Balboa, y decidi6 en-
tonces que alg6n dia participaria en
events atl6ticos. Su maestra de gim-
nasia de sexto grado, la Sra. Lee
Kariger lo alent6 para que ingresara
en el equipo de atletismo de la es-
cuela primaria, y un afio mis tarde
bajo la direcci6n del coach Paul
Karst en la Intermedia de Diablo,
Stinson se convirti6 en un excelente
oven atleta.
Stinson tambidn recibi6 consejos
de entrenamiento y estimulo de par-
te del Teniente Robert Harris del
Fuerte Kobbe, quien ha corrido con
su ex compafiero de classes, el hom-
bre mAs veloz del mundo, Bob Hayes,
de Florida A & M.
Stinson, quien reside en Anc6n, es

Nifios menores de 6 afios de edad
podrAn entrar a un teatro de la Zona
del Canal, gratuitamente, solamente
cuando vayan acompafiados por una
persona responsible que pague una
entrada de adulto. Los nifios meno-
res de 6 afios no acompafiados, no
podrAn entrar.
La reglamentaci6n relacionada con
los nifios menores de 6 afios no acom-
pafiados en los teatros, ha estado en
vigor durante muchos afios. De
acuerdo con esta reglamentaci6n, los
nifios menores de 6 afios deben ir
acompafiados por una persona res-
ponsable, para asegurar que un nifio
pequefio no result lesionado o
muerto en caso de incendio u otra
catAstrofe durante las funciones; para
asegurar que un nifio no sera moles-
tado y para proteger a otros clients
de los teatros del escAndalo y corre-
dera que forman los jovencitos.
Un nifio de 12 afios o mAs puede
llevar a uno de 6 afios al teatro, ya
que la entrada de adulto es cobrada
a los nifios de 12 o mAs afios. Como
una concesi6n especial, durante los

cialmente para los nifios o en los lla-
mados "matinds infantiles" los siba-

Esta concesi6n especial fue permi-
