A few Heave Ho's, and up she goes.
This 47-foot-high geodesic aluminum dome really didn't go up that fast.
It took nearly 3 weeks for workmen employed by Bildon, Inc., to assemble
the 450 parts that make up the modern style roof for the Curundu Junior
High School combination cafeteria and auditorium.
Starting with a central unit seen in the photograph at right, the diamond
and triangular shaped pieces were bolted together and raised gradually up

the construction mast as the dome
grew to its full 140 feet in diameter.
The picture below shows all the
roof parts in place and attached to
the steel supporting columns. The
small wall areas between the alumi-
num dome and the ground will be
of tinted glass in the auditorium area
and block walls in the kitchen
The inside of the dome is to be
covered with sprayed-on gypsum
acoustical and thermal insulation to
make air conditioning of the modern
shaped building feasible. On the
outside, the joints are being sealed
with polymer based sealant.

The interior of the building will
be large enough to seat 750 students
F r dining and be served by two serv-
ice lines cut of the kitchen. The same
floor area will seat 1,000 for audito-
rium use with a 364-seat balcony
over the kitchen. The kitchen will
contain facilities to prepare and
serve meals to 750 persons at a
The geodesic dome is a modern
architectural form originated by the
noted U.S. engineer and industrial
designer, R. Buckminster Fuller. The
cafetorium it covers is part of the new

Organist-Composer Now Seated

At New Keyboard for Pan Canal

Mario Fabrega, a rising young
Panama composer whose colorful
rhythms sing of tropical Panama,
blue oceans, waving palm trees, and
enchanted summer evenings, would
rather be an accountant in the Office
of the Comptroller, Panama Canal,
than be a musician.
He now is working in the General
Ledger and Processing Branch of the
Accounting Division at the Admin-
istration Building, Balboa Heights,
and at the end of the year will have
his degree in economical sciences
from the University of Panama,
where he is majoring in accounting.

No Sudden Decision
This is not a sudden decision for
the Panama musician. The course he
is completing at the University of
Panama is a 6-year course, and while
in school he also has been working-
- at accounting.
He was born in Santiago, Republic
of Panama, where he lived until he
was 10 years of age. Then the family
moved to Panama City, where he
attended the last year of primary

school and then high school at the quite a month old. His little girl has

opportunity to graduate from piano
to organ.
Plays by Ear
He plays by ear, which, he says,
is much easier than following music.
One day he hit on the idea of orga-
nizing a conjunto or group and
scored an immediate success. At 20
he was the oldest of his group, whose
youth, vitality, and lively rhythms -
made them in demand in Panama as
well as in the Canal Zone.
He has a number of recordings to
his credit, and is the author of a
number of songs and melodies in-
cluding the boleros "Tierra Mia" and
"Este Amor," a medley of melodies,
and "Congas Panamefias," as well as

a year old, and a son, Mario Luis, not Mario Fabrega

On the mark and ready to go.

Star-Studded Transit

Scheduled Next Month

On June 22 a constellation and a
star will meet and pass each other
while transiting the Panama Canal.
Their namesakes will, that is.
They are the British Shaw, Savill
& Albion Co., Ltd., passenger liners
Southern Cross, moving south, and
the Northern Star, transiting north.
Agents W. Andrews & Co. say that
this will be the first time these two
'round-the-world liners have met here
since the Southern Cross inaugurated
the service in 1955. The Southern
Cross is due in Cristobal June 22 from
England and will start through the
Canal immediately. The Northern
Star will arrive at Balboa June 21
from Australia and transit the fol-
lowing day.
The two ships are nearly similar in
construction although the Southern
Cross is some 7 years older than the
Northern Star. Both carry approxi-
mately 1,200 passengers, are one
class, air conditioned throughout and
have engines and funnel aft.
The Southern Cross travels around
the world generally in a westerly
direction while the Northern Star
always goes east. Both have nearly

the same itinerary, with stops at Las
Palmas, Cape Town, Durban, Austra-
lian and New Zealand ports, Fiji,
Tahiti, Trinidad and Barbados. They
make four voyages around the world
each year.

Disaster Relief

Appeal Started

An appeal is being made to
Isthmian residents for voluntary
contributions to help the stricken
people in a 10-State area in the
United States where more than
81,000 persons have lost their
homes and belongings in floods
or tornadoes.
Checks or money orders may be
sent to the Canal Zone Chapter,
American Red Cross, Box 322,
Balboa Heights, and should be
designated "for disaster relief."
Prior to the opening of the cur-
rent campaign for disaster relief
funds, the Canal Zone Chapter
of the Red Cross voted $1,000
from its reserve funds sent im-
mediately for relief of the U.S.
disaster victims.

PanCanal Book,

Cards Gift Ideas
Going on vacation?
At a loss for an idea as to some
inexpensive gifts for some relatives
or special friends? Something they
might cherish through the years.
How about copies of the 50th
anniversary book of the Panama
Canal? They're available in service
centers, in limited supply, still at the
original cost: $2.75, in either English
or Spanish.
One reviewer hailed the book as
"a fine pictorial and statistical survey
of the Canal's history, development,
and operation." The 128-page book
contains hundreds of pictures, along
with special art work. There are sec-
tions on life today in the Canal Zone,
a condensed history of the Canal, a
complete, condensed history of the
Republic of Panama, plus pictures.
Many of the pictures in the book
were published for the first time in
these volumes, made from some of
the thousands of glass slides in the
Panama Canal archives.
An ideal gift idea, the book has
a hard cover, is embossed in gold,
and a colorful cover protects it.
Also a possible welcome gift is a
set of Golden Anniversary Panama
Canal playing cards, for a change of
pace for your giving. In a trim plastic
container, the red and black back-
ground cards, with the anniversary
design in color in the center, also are
available at service centers. The price
is $2.75 for the set of two decks of

Chagres Aero Club

Now Has 2 Planes;

Membership Open

The newly organized Chagres Aero
Club has purchased two aircraft for
recreation and flight training for club
members. The aircraft are a Piper
PA-11 trainer and a Calair, which is
fully aerobatic. Club membership
now numbers 12 persons.

4th Grand Prix

Set for May 30

At Albrook AFB
The Isthmian Autosport Associa-
tion has announced that the fourth
running of the Grand Prix of Pan-
ama will be held at Albrook Air
Force Base May 30.
All proceeds from the race will go
to the Ciudad del Nifio, an institu-
tion for underprivileged children,
headed by Mrs. Petita Saa de Robles.
This event promises to be the most
interesting and exciting sports car
race ever held on the Isthmus. Expe-
rienced drivers and a wide variety
of racing machinery should bring in
some very low lap times on the
2-mile, 10-turn circuit.
For those spectators who attended
last year's Grand Prix, there will be a
few familiar faces among the drivers,
and quite a number of unfamiliar
automobiles. Mike Reed, of Fort
Clayton, is expecting to run a Lotus
Super-7, capable of speeds in excess
of 130 m.p.h. The only car entered
which has thus far proven itself faster
than the Lotus will be a Jaguar XKE,
driven by Panama's George Arias.
Maf. Bruce Jenny, of Howard Air
Force Base, will drive his Porsche
Speedster. Major Jenny has more
time in racing machinery than any
other driver competing and holds a
Sports Car Club of America competi-
tion license.
The first race, for sedans and
Volkswagens, will start at noon on
Memorial Day and will run for 25
laps. The 50-lap Grand Prix will get
underway at 1 p.m.
Tickets are on sale both in Panama
and the Canal Zone. Those who wish
to inquire about entering a car in
competition should contact Pat Ken-
nett at Motortune, Inc., 38, 31st

ities Building on Roosevelt Avenue,
An invitation to the public is being
extended, since the seating capacity
of the Activities Building auditorium

but voluntary contributions may be
made to benefit the Special Educa-
tion Association of the Canal Zone.
Advance donations may be mailed

campaign underway this month.

Buddy Poppy

Sales Start

Buddy Poppies will be sold in the
Canal Zone by Veterans of Foreign
Wars volunteers from May 21
through June 3. Last year more than

by volunteers representing the 5
VFW posts in the Zone.
Since 1920, poppies have been sold
annually by the VFW. Each Buddy
Poppy sold represents a silent salute

Poppy expresses the motto of the
VFW: "Honor the Dead by Helping
the Living."

disabled veterans by the VFW posts.
The money collected from their sale
is used to support the activities and
rehabilitation of America's disabled

barro que se realize en dicha ciudad, recientemente, con ocasi6n del vig6-

inclusive PanamA. La sefiora de Jos6 Domingo de Obaldia, nuera del
segundo Presidente de PanamA, fue quien ide6 esa presentaci6n de las

En Estados Unidos el fumador
promedio consume 4,035 pitillos al
afio. En Alemania Occidental las
estadisticas revelan que personas
mayores de 15 afios fuman mds de
2,000 cigarrillos por ahio, lo que ya
es bastante fumar.
Es una de las tantas maneras de
hacer a la plata volverse humo. .

Uno de Cada Cinco
Conductores no ve Bien
Este afio se calcula que unas
135,000 personas se someterAn a un
examen ocular en el Estado de Wash-
ington al renovar su licencia para
conducir. Este requisite se ha esta-
blecido obligatoriamente despues de
un experiment realizado el afio pa-
sado con mil voluntarios. Estos exi-
menes han permitido descubrir que
entire los 1,000 conductores 1 de
cada 5 tenia fallas en la vision; vista
precaria o defectuosa.



Las piedras de esmeril o piedras de amolar, como se les denomina en
algunas parties, tienen una apariencia pacifica hasta cuando estdn en fun-
cionamiento. La verdad es que esta herramienta puede causar accidents
realmente serious si no se tienen en cuenta todas las normas para su empleo
Toda persona que emplee una de estas mdquinas debe recorder y poner
en prdctica como minimo las tres reglas que mencionamos a continuacidn:
Inspeccione las ruedas para determinar defectos-Los defects en las
ruedas, tales como superficie dispareja o grietas, no s6lo impiden hacer un
buen trabajo, sino son un indicio de la posibilidad de rotura de la rueda.
Una rueda que se rompe, cuando estd girando el esmeril a la velocidad de
operaci6n, no lo hace con suavidad y mds bien semeja una explosion. Los
pedazos salen disparados en todas direcciones impulsados par la fuerza cen-
trifuga. Algunos de ellos pueden ser detenidos por los protectors, si se
encuentran en su puesto.
Mantenga colocados los protectores-Esto se refiere no solamente a los
protectors laterales sino tambidn a los protectors transparentes que se
colocan por delante de la piedra para evitar que particular desprendidas
durante el empleo puedan llegar hasta los ojos del operario.
*" Mantenga el apoyo de la herramienta a 3 mm. de la rueda-El apoyo
estd disefiado para recostar contra dl la pieza que se estd esmerilando y evitar
que, por efecto de la friccidn, pueda ser arrastrada por la piedra. Este apoyo
deja de ser una ayuda para convertirse en un peligro cuando se deja dema-
siado retirado. La distancia entire el apoio y la rueda debe ser suficientemente
pequena para evitar que la pieza de labor pueda ser atrapada entire los dos.
Los esmeriles pueden ser tan pacificos como su apariencia siempre que se
les dd el uso y el mantenimiento adecuados.

Quienes estuvieren a punto de par-
tir en vacaciones tropezaran, sin
duda, con el problema de qu6 rega-

que pudiese servirles de recuerdo a
trav6s de los aios. . .
La soluci6n pueda que no est6
alejada si dan en la conveniencia

Barotitis o Aerotitis:
O Barotrauma
Uno d lo malesmales mayors que pa-
decen los pasajeros de aeronaves es
una sordera posterior al vuelo, pro-
vocada por los cambios de presi6n,
conocida como barotitis, aerotitis o
barotrauma. El pasajero se percata
del mal por una dolencia y sordera
que muchas veces se suprime con un
simple bostezo o por el acto de forzar
aire con la nariz y boca tapada, es
decir, por una exhalaci6n de aire que
no tiene lugar. Los m6dicos experts
aconsejan que los que no recuperen
la audici6n normal busquen trata-
miento clinic inmediato.
