Dates Are Listed

For 1965 Elections

In each presidential election year
voting information booklets are dis-
tributed to units of the PanCanal
organization, unions, civic councils
and fraternal organizations-nearly
300 in all.
In between these distribution
periods, supplementary information
is sent out to all organizations which
have the voting information book-
lets. This supplementary informa-
tion lists changes in State voting laws
and also gives information concern-
ing upcoming State elections.
Such a supplementary list now
is being distributed to those organi-
zations which received a copy of the
1964 edition of the "Voting Informa-
tion Pamphlet" in February of last
year. No procedural changes occur-
red but there is a listing of regular
and special elections to be held in
the various States in 1965. A copy
of this list appears below.
Further similar bulletins regarding
changes in State laws and regular and
special elections will be sent out in
the future as they are received from

the Deputy Coordinator of the Fed-
eral Voting Assistance Program.

Draft Low

As Lakes

Stay Low
Draft limitations rise in direct rela-
tion to the height of Gatun Lake. On
June 14 the Gatun Lake level was
82.84 feet and vessels arriving at
the Canal to transit were limited to
a maximum tropical fresh water draft
of 35 feet 6 inches, a restriction that
went into effect May 27. A year ago
on the same date Gatun Lake was at
a height of 85.48 feet and the draft
allowance was 37 feet 6 inches.
By July 2 last year the draft allow-
ance was 37.6 feet. By July 24 the
rains had brought the level of Catun
Lake to more than 86 feet and the
permissible fresh water draft was in-
creased to 38.5 feet, the highest in
Canal history.
For the first 13 days in June Gatun
Lake has averaged 82.94 feet. Only
seven times since the lake was
formed have the waters been at that
level or lower, says the Panama
Canal Hydrographer. In 1920, Gatun
Lake was at 82.21; 1926, 82.70;
1933, 81.88; 1946, 82.74; 1948,
82.26; 1957, 82.33; and 1958, 82.93.
Madden Lake, on June 14, was at
an elevation of 216.12 feet. Exactly
a year ago the waters were at 299.09
feet. Only four times since 1942 have
Madden Lake's waters been at a
lower level. Those times were 1948,
212.20 feet; 1957, 208.37; 1959,
216.21; and 1962, 214.57.

Sunday Buffets

To End June 20
Because of the vacation exodus of
parents and children from the Isth-
mus and consequent lack of patron-
age, the Sunday buffet at the Tivoli
Guest House will be discontinued
after the buffet on Father's Day,
Sunday, June 20.
The Thursday night buffet will be
continued as at present.

Retirement Party Set
Miss Anne E. Williams, time,

tiring after 45 years' service with the
Panama Canal organization, will be
guest of honor at a cocktail and
dinner party hosted by her coworkers
in the Payroll and Machine Account-
ing Branch of the Canal's Accounting
Division on Friday evening, June 25.

Dalvin Heilman will retire on
July 21 from the Canal Zone Police
But the name of this police officer
and the humanitarian work he has
done during his 33 years on the
Isthmus will be remembered for a
long time.
A humble but significant tribute
to his volunteer work is the David S.
Heilman Vocational School, named
in his honor by a small group of
Panamanian youths he had aided in
establishing a modest school for the
study of refrigeration, the repair of
electric appliances, and other phases
of vocational efforts.
It all started about 2 years ago
when Heilman was on duty in the

area of the residence of the Canal Abajo, in El Porvenir
Zone Governor. It was a Sunday Panama City.

afternoon and his attention was
attracted by a large Panamanian
family walking past his duty area.
He started a conversation with the
father and asked if all the children
were his. Yes, was the answer. The
family now numbered six and
another was on the way. The man's
name was Justo Mauricio Fernandez,
refrigeration and air-conditioning
technician, who at the time had no
steady employment.
This casual encounter between the
Zone police officer and the Panama-
nian laborer was the start of a sin-
cere friendship that later culminated
in the establishment of the little
vocational school in a corner of Rio

Dalvin Heilmai

suburb of Police Officer Heilman visited the
FernAndez family at their home on
Calle 17 Oeste and they took him to
El Porvenir suburb. There, in a room
where a youth named Marcelino
Moya resided, five men met every
night to study refrigeration under
the direction of Mr. FernAndez.
Impressed by the enthusiasm and
the dedication of these people, Heil-
man resolved to assist them. In his
free time he searched for materials-
blackboards, notebooks, textbooks-
everything necessary in order to con-
duct classes. He also was able to
obtain damaged refrigerators, an air
conditioner, and refrigeration tools
that he donated to the school so that
the students could put into practice
na what they learned from FernAndez

and their textbooks. From his own
funds he paid several months' rental
on the one-room building where
classes are held.
"We are deeply grateful to Mr.
Heilman," says FernAndez with sin-
cere enthusiasm, "because he showed
us that by doing our share we could
multiply the value of the assistance
that he and others gave us."
The school grew, and with the
school the suburb grew. And the con-
tagious spirit of cooperation that
made establishment of the school
possible was reflected in the enthu-
siasm of the other residents of the
community-100 families who work
together for the benefit of all. The

Sheryl Williams, daughter of
Lt. Col. and Mrs. Dudley A. Wil-
liams, of Headquarters USARSO,
Office of Military Assistance, of Fort
Clayton, has been awarded a 9-week
scholarship in marine biology at
Scripps Institute of Oceanography at
La Jolla, Calif.
Sheryl, who completed, in June,
her junior year at Balboa High
School, is the first girl and the first
junior ever to win the contest. More-
over, she is the only scholarship
winner this year.
The scholarship was won on her
essay on bioluminescence, written for
an annual contest sponsored by the
Skin Diver magazine.
She will study under a recent
Nobel Prize winner, Julian Miller, in
the Marine Life Research Group.
Her principal project will involve
working on plankton in the Marine-
Biology Laboratory.

A good reason for this exists and
I'll come to it presently. First let's
talk about heat and what it does to us.
At Johns Hopkins University
I studied the ecologic aspect of heat

standing authorities. I remember he

I remember the first Independence

New Cristobal on the night of
November 2, being a new arrival on
the Isthmus. Out of the mist of sleep
I became aware of music; a brass
band to be exact. All was dark.
I could not believe anyone would
strike up a band in the middle of the
night. But no mistaking. Past the
house marched a complete parade.
Dazed, I finally looked at the clock:
3:30 a.m.! I soon learned that celebra-

in the tropics.
Long before Douglas Lee or any of
his scientific associates researched
upon the prevention of heat illness
some of the methods developed by
early Panamanians proved so success-
ful that they have stood the test of
critical research. A few folk ways

Overloading is one of the common
causes of b:)ating mishaps, according
to Warren H. Smith, Chief of the
Safety Branch and Panama Canal
representative on this year's Safe
Boating Week Committee.

Most new commercially manufac-
tured boats, he points out, have a
manufacturer's plate indicating how
much weight they are designed to
carry. The Panama Canal, in issuing
boat licenses, specifies the maximum
number of passengers and crew.
These limits should never be ex-

Ruskin Teeter, a history teacher at
Balboa High School, has the distinc-
tion of being the oldest of four
brothers who are all teachers-three
of them at Central High School in
Little Rock, Ark.
His brothers: Tom teaches Amer-
ican history and world history; Joe,
who started what some students call
the "Teeter dynasty" when he went
to Central in 1962, teaches world
history, and Jim Teeter, the third
brother on the scene, went there in
1963 to teach business education.
And that's only half the story.
Both parents of the four also are in
education. C. R. Teeter, father of the
quartet of educators, is director of
development at Arkansas State
Teachers College in Conway and
Mrs. Teeter is a teacher at Conway.
Surprisingly, hardly any mix-up
occurs among his brothers personally.
But one slightly exasperated senior

Curiously eyeing the Canal, while they were being curiously eyed, were some 30 alpacas that transited on board the "Weimar" of the Hamburg-
American Line. The alpacas, who are much like llamas, have fine, long woolly hair and are domesticated in Peru. The ones pictured above are en route
from Peru to a European zoo. The vessel also carried about 10 pelicans, who were snug in private little cages.

result of their efforts can be seen in
the highway entering El Porvenir,
the concrete bridge over a ravine,
the water main, the electric lights,
all the work of the residents without
outside aid.
Today the school has 100 students
who, besides refrigeration and repair
of electrical appliances, learn to
repair motors and attend English-
language classes. Soon, if they obtain
a sewing machine, they plan to start
dressmaking classes for the girls of
the area.
When Fernandez learned that
Heilman's retirement was approach-
ing, he organized a small reception
so that all the residents could meet
this police officer who for 2 years
aided the people of El Porvenir and
who was known only to the students
at the school.
Heilman modestly says he didn't
do anything great. But he hopes that
his fellow police officers in Balboa
and other interested persons will do
all that is possible to continue his
work. They deserve it, he says,
because they have worked very hard
to achieve what they have.
Heilman came to the Isthmus for
the first time in 1932, as a soldier in
the U.S. Army Engineer Corps. He
returned to the States in 1934, but
was transferred again to the Canal
Zone in 1936. When he left the
Army, in 1939, he started work as
a Panama Canal lock guard and then
joined the police force. In 1945 he
transferred to the Motor Transporta-
tion Division and in 1950 transferred
back to the Canal Zone Police Divi-
He is a native of Arcadia, Pa.,
where he was born February 6, 1914.
He is married to Bessy Lee Phillips,
who was born in Gorgas Hospital.
They are the parents of two daugh-
ters, Beth E. Tremblay, an X-ray
technician at Gorgas Hospital, and
Janice Lea Pepper, who lives in
Stanford, Fla.
Heilman still does not know where
he will make his permanent res-
idence. He plans, first, to travel
through the United States and then
decide. He doubts very much, how-
ever, that he'll return to Pennsyl-
vania to reside since, after so many
years in Panama, he is afraid he'd
find the winters in that State too

and the readers of Look know that
the best of all possible worlds is to
be found among the many worlds of
Leo Rosten. Yet the number and
variety of those worlds will amaze
nearly everyone. This collection,
bringing together Rosten's own selec-
tion of his best work from 30 years
of writing, contains almost as many
surprises as it does favorites. Drawn
from 13 books and several hundred
articles, it ranges from humor to
psychiatry, from sociology to politics,
the arts, travel, satire. And it is laced
lavishly with delightful entertain-
ments prepared especially for this

The prodigious intelligence and
talent so conspicuous in Rosten's fic-
tion are no less persuasive when he is

that he will be hugely entertained,

Tal como existen diferentes tipos
de embarcaciones que transportan
mercaderias de distintas classes, las
naves entire si son de caracteristicas
diversas, dependiendo de su uso.
iC6mo se determine el calado de
esas naves?
Al Canal de PanamA le importa
much este asunto del calado. Y ello
es asi porque varia segin las esta-
ciones del afio. Cuando el nivel del
lago lo permit, el calado mAximo
en agua fresca monta a 39 pies en
el lugar de mayor profundidad de
sumergencia de la quilla. Ese calado
es permisible en naves que han tran-
sitado exitosamente con el de 38 pies
6 pulgadas, y cuya configuraci6n les
permit negociar las esclusas con
dicho calado. Estos barcos por lo
general tienen de 700 a 850 pies de
eslora y una manga de 97 a 102 pies.
Una de las principles atribucio-
nes de la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n es
velar porque las naves que transitan

por el Canal est6n cargadas con su-
jeci6n a las reglas de seguridad y
que su calado no exceda el permisi-
ble para su tipo y para la 6poca del
afio. Cuando se tropieza con alguna
nave que exceda el calado, se la
obliga a corregir la anomalia, lo que
se logra vaciando un poco del agua
que lleva abordo, o descargando

Todo empez6 hace unos 2 afios,
cuando Heilman se encontraba de
servicio cerca de la residencia del
Gobernador de la Zona del Canal.

nico de refrigeraci6n y aire acondi-
cionado que por aquel entonces no
tenia empleo fijo.
Ese encuentro occasional entire el
policia zoneita y el obrero panamefio
fue el inicio de una sincera amistad
que mas adelante culmin6 en el es-
tablecimiento de la pequefia escuela
vocacional que funciona en un rinc6n
del sector de Rio Abajo de la ciudad
de PanamA, en la barriada El Por-
El official Heilman visit pronto
a los FernAndez en su residencia de
Calle 17 Oeste y ellos lo llevaron
a la barriada El Porvenir, que apenas
comenzaba por aquel entonces. En
el cuarto de un joven llamado Mar-
celino Moya se reunian todas las
noches cinco hombres, que contando

solamente con sus ansias de supera-
ci6n, estudiaban refrigeraci6n bajo
la tutela del Sr. FernAndez.
Impresionado con el entusiasmo
y dedicaci6n de esa gente, Heilman
resolvi6 ayudarles en su esfuerzo de
superaci6n. En sus horas libres, ca-
lladamente, se dedic6 a conseguir
equipo-pizarrones, cuadernos, textos

Desde hace 49 afios, Byron D. East-
man trabaia en las Esclusas de Mira-
flores. Operador de teletipo en la
Torre de Control, es persona suma-
mente querida por su trato amable y
espiritu de cooperaci6n con todos los
que lo necesitan. Casado desde hace
37 afios. Su esposa se llama Letha y
tiene cuatro hijos, dos de ellos son
contratistas en Panama. Los otros dos
pertenecen al Ejhrcito de los Esta-
dos Unidos. El Sr. Eastman, a los 68
afios de edad, sube las escaleras de
la torre de control con una agilidad
que le envidiarian muchos j6venes.
Atribuye su magnifica salud a su afi-
ci6n por los deportes al aire libre,
especialmente la nataci6n.

Guatemala limita al norte y occi-
dente con M4xico, al este con Belice,
y el Golfo de Honduras; al sudeste
con Honduras y El Salvador y al
suroeste con el Oc6ano Pacifico.

Guatemala es primordialmente agri-
cola, ya que tanto su clima cuanto su
suelo, favorecen la producci6n del
agro. El caf6 es su product princi-
pal y represent el 70 por ciento de
sus exportaciones. Los tupidos bos-
ques contienen recursos naturales ri-
quisimos que todavia estAn por explo-
tar. Se calcula que como el 40 por
ciento del Area total del pais esta
compuesta de florestas donde hay
una variedad de 200 Arboles, siendo
los principles la caoba, el cedro,
pinos, cipreses y bAlsamo.

S Vaya y encArguese de las centrifu-
gadoras! Esa fue la orden que Victor
A. Cisneros recibi6 hace 20 afios.
Desde entonces se encuentra en el
mismo lugar, a cargo de la Planta de
Manejo de Aceite, en el muelle de la
Division de Dragas, en Gamboa. EstA
sumamente orgulloso de su trabajo,
que le permit servir a todo el equipo
flotante de la Divisi6n. Naci6 en la
ciudad de PanamA hace 44 afios, pero
a los 4 meses vino a vivir con sus
padres en la Zona del Canal. Hizo
sus studios primaries y secundarios
c. ompletos en la Zona. El 20 de di-
-. ciembre de 1940 contrajo matrimo-
nio con Isabel Espafi6, guapisima
aguadulcefia. De su uni6n nacieron
dos hijos: Victor A., Jr., de 24 afios
y Julio A. de 19. El primero trabaja
de cajero en el Hotel El Panami; el
segundo es oficinista con los Produc-
tos Libby.

Ra6l Soriano, el catalogado como cuarto aspirante al cetro mundial de los
pesos ligeros, subirA mafiana al cuadrilAtero del Estadio Olimpico "Juan Dem6s-
tenes Arosemena" para enfrentarse a la prueba mis dura de su exitosa carrera.
El pugil mexicano, sin embargo, debe saber que s6lo tiene un oponente: Ismael
Laguna, el campe6n mundial y papacito de todos los de su peso.
No debe temer el visitante ni la hostilidad del p6blico, ni la parcialidad de
los jueces, ni arbitrariedad alguna de parte del Arbitro, ya que en Panami esas
cosas no se estilan y no serian toleradas.
Sube Soriano al tinglado a luchar inicamente contra su contrincante.
Ahora, que ya eso es bastante . !
Porque de que Laguna lo ahoga a pufietazos, lo ahoga. . Por nada se le
llama "El Tigre" al actual monarca de los livianos.

Tan liviano es Laguna que casi parece un pluma. Por su rapidez vertiginosa.
Por el relampagueante "jab" de izquierda que siempre tropieza con el blanco:
la cara de su opositor. Por sus piernas Agiles y fuertes.
El idolo de la afici6n panamefia hace su primera presentaci6n desde coro-
narse campe6n al destronar a Carlos Ortiz en abril pasado.
Seg6n decires de los enterados, 6sta podria ser la iltima presentaci6n de
Laguna en Panama este afio, de modo que de fijo que sus millares de admiradores
estarin alli en el estadio para verlo en acci6n, animarlo y aplaudirlo con el
entusiasmo jamis menguante.
Laguna sube al ring favorite. Lo era tambi6n el campe6n que ascendi6 al
cuadrilitero olimpico en abril, precisamente, frente al entonces cuarto aspirante
a su corona. . .

Y, eso no es nada . los padres
tambi6n forman parte del magisterio.
El padre, C. R. Teeter es director de
desarrollo de la Escuela Normal del
Estado de Arkansas, en Conway,
donde su esposa es maestra.
Esto a veces crea cierta confusion,
como el graduando que se quejaba:
"Mis padres creen que solo tengo un

comercio es Teeter (Jim); y el de his-

La mencionada universidad, du-

tario, en las instalaciones de las
fuerzas armadas. Unos 4,000 estu-

a traves de este program, se han
graduado en la Universidad del Es-
