Locks Floors

To Be Checked
Unwatering of the west lane at
Miraflores Locks is scheduled to
begin September 4 to permit explora-
tory drilling of the locks floor. Any
defects discovered by the drilling
will be repaired and lateral culvert
sections will be pinned with steel
rods to prevent any occurrence of
the type of failure which occurred
at Pedro Miguel Locks earlier this
year. (Extensive repairs to the floor
of the west lane were required.)
Following completion of the west
lane, similar work will be performed
on the east lane. All drilling and
repairs will be accomplished by
the Maintenance and Dredging Divi-
sions of the Panama Canal. Work is
scheduled for completion by Octo-
ber 29, with both lanes to be
operating at that time.
Starting in November, the Locks
Division will resume the trial of the
24-hour concept of overhauling miter
gates. The 24-hour concept provides
for repairing the miter gates without
unwatering the chamber or taking
the lane out of service.
The work will consist of placing
cofferdams at the wall quoin faces of
miter gates 112 and 113 in the east
lane, pumping out the cofferdam,
completing the necessary underwater
repairs in the unwatered coffer-
dam, removing the cofferdam, and
replacing the gates which were
removed and repaired in the Balboa
drydock by the Industrial Division
earlier this year.
This project will be completed by
the first week in December.

Registration at CZC
Open Through Sept. 1
Registration for fall semester Canal
Zone College courses is being held
daily through September 1. Inter-
ested students may obtain necessary
forms and instructions at the college
Appointments may be made to

Only One Way

To Beat Radar

Speeding Check
Speeding motorists in the Canal
Zone no longer can depend on their
rearview mirrors for help in evading
speeding tickets. The use of radar by
the Canal Zone police takes care of
Thirty speeders received citations
over the past weekend in the Balboa
Police District. The figure represents
more than 50 percent of the number
of speed citations issued in the
10-day period since the radar check
was started. From August 4 to
August 13, a total of 67 tickets for
radar-checked speeding were issued
by the Balboa police.
Radar speed checks started July 23
in the Cristobal Police District, and
41 citations were issued there up to
the past weekend.
Age has nothing to do with the
yen to speed. All age groups are rep-
resented by those who are tempted
to "let-'er-out" on the straight and
not so straight stretches.
Chronic speeders in the past
depended on their rearview mirrors

A new method for preparing "per-
sonal" pay adjustment and step in-
crease notifications to employees has
been developed by the Personnel
Bureau. The new individual notices
will replace the old "mass action"
personnel forms which employees
formerly received when they were
given a within grade step increase
or benefited from general pay in-
creases applying to many employees
within a particular pay category.
The old mass actions were some-
thing less than "private" and allowed
the recipient to examine step, grade,
and salary of all other persons listed
on the mass action form with him.
By the same token, his grade and
rate of pay was similarly available
to the other persons on the form.
The new individual notices are
printed on an IBM card marked in
red, "EMPLOYEE COPY." They
will be printed by machine and from
now on employees will receive
their notification of step increase
or pay adjustment personally and

Let Experts

Handle Work

On Antennas
Due to the accident hazard and
damage to roofs as a result of ten-
nants and commercial servicemen
installing roof-mounted TV and radio
antennas, it has been recommended
that only experienced maintenance-
men be permitted to do this type of
Antenna installations or removals
will be accomplished, at occupants'
expense, by the Maintenance Divi-
sion upon request of the house-
holder, after approval by the Housing
If installation is done by private
or commercial personnel, the house-
holder will be held responsible for
any revisions to the installation or
repairs to roofs, or other portions
of the building, necessitated by
irresponsible installers.
Installation of roof-top antennas
must be made in accordance with
rules listed in the "Application for
Authority to Install a Radio or Tele-
vision Outdoor Antenna System"
which the householder makes out in
triplicate. These may be obtained
from the District Housing Manager.
Unauthorized persons should not
be permitted access to roofs at any
time, both for safety reasons and for
the preservation of the roof. Children
are prohibited from playing on any
roof because of the danger involved.

Oral Polio


Shots Urged
Parents of schoolchildren up to the
age of 18 years should be sure that
their children have a second oral
polio booster before entering school.
This is the "sweetest" immunization
of all for it is two drops of each of
the three types of the polio vaccine
given on a sugar cube.
The Division of Preventive Medi-
cine offered oral polio drops to Canal
Zone residents and Panama Canal
organization employees in April and
May 1963. All persons taking the
basic doses were told to return a
year later for a booster.
Now it is recommended by the
American Academy of Pediatrics
that all children receive a second
booster preferably upon entrance to
school at about 7 years of age.
However, until all young persons
under age 18 receive a second
booster polio vaccine will be offered
to all those in school.
Oral polio may be secured free of
charge from the six Community
Health Centers located in Balboa,
Paraiso, Rainbow City, Coco Solo,
Margarita, and Gatun and also from
the Gamboa Dispensary.

Old-Timers Sing And Sway

On Jamaica Founding Day

"Construction days were nothing
like this," commented one of the
large group of non-U.S. citizen dis-
ability relief pensioners, bobbing his
head in time to the music during
the annual boatride given by the
Panama Canal organization for
Canal disability relief pensioners on
Jamaica's Independence Day.
This was the third year the anni-
versary of Jamaica's independence
was observed in this manner, with
the Panama Canal's Personnel Bu-
reau Employees' Services Branch in
charge of all arrangements.
The disability relief pensioners
were taken on a busride over the
Thatcher Ferry Bridge and then to
Miraflores Locks where they were
shown a Construction Days film.
Many recognized old work sites
and old times were discussed all
during the ride from Miraflores to
the Pedro Miguel boat dock, where
the Panama Canal launch Las Cruces
was boarded for a partial Canal
transit to Gatun Lake. For the
occasion, the launch had added the
flag of Jamaica.
During the boatride the guests,
whose average age was approxi-
mately 75 (the oldest was in the
mid-80's) danced to organ music by
Frankie AzcArraga. Those who didn't
dance sang and swayed in rhythm.

Refreshments were served during

the trip.
The guests were accompanied by
Dr. Headley C. Lennoan and nurses
A. T. Caton and Lilia L. Rodriguez
of the Panama Canal Employee
Services Branch. Greeting the guests
was Nathan Fleckner, administrative
assistant of the Employee Services
As the boat approached the
Gamboa dock, where buses were
waiting, Josephus Liverpool, on
behalf of his fellow guests, gave a
speech of thanks.
The Panama Canal Disability
Relief beneficiaries are non-U.S.
citizens who retired between July 8,
1934, and October 5, 1958, either
due to physical disability or age, with
a minimum of 10 years of Panama
Canal Service. These do not come
under the Civil Service Retirement
As of June 30, there were 2,332
on the Canal disability relief rolls on
the Isthmus and 493 scattered in the
United States, Europe, Central and
South America, India and Pakistan.
Through the Panama Canal Em-
ployee Services Branch, those on the
disability relief rolls are provided
counseling service, medical care, a
health insurance program, and re-
ceive extra help through CARE food



A guest at the St. Petersburg, Fla., motel owned by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Carey tries her skill with a Panama-
nian cayuco. This is one of two cayucos made by the Choco Indians and shipped to the Careys that are providing
many hours of enjoyment for their guests. The cayucos have been fitted with outriggers to prevent their being
overturned by stateside amateurs. The Careys were Isthmus residents when Mr. Carey was with the Army.

Gambling on Speed?
Your chances, on the average, of
being killed if you have an auto
accident vary by the speed at which
you drive, as follows: at 25 miles an
hour, 1 chance in 167; at 45 miles
an hour, 1 chance in 6t; at 75 miles
an hour, 1 hance in 8; at more than
80, a near certainty. So reports the
American Insurance Institute on the
basis of studies of fatal accidents.

Jamaica's Independence Day was highlighted by a partial Canal transit on the Panama Canal launch "Las Cruces"

In "House Out of Order," Richard

of the House of Representatives in
action, discussing its problems and
proposing possible reforms. This

"The Man With Red and Green
Eyes" is the autobiography of Henry
A. Barnes, an indomitable, clever,
and remarkable man who has served
as traffic engineer for some of the
most-problem-ridden cities in the
United States. In this story he
bemoans his own fate and that of
the other 2,000 beleaguered traffic
engineers in the United States but
manages to tell of their (and his)
troubles with wit and humor.
Flannery O'Connor's last book of

collection on which she was working

written. All indicate a preoccupation
with death. Most of the stories are
written about the South. "Everything
That Rises Must Converge" surely is
the most admirable memorial which'
the author could have left behind-
a book which will be read and then
reread by many people.
"Bell Call" is a novel by Sylvia
Ashton-Warner in the same general
vein as her earlier "Teacher" and
"Spinster." In this latest book, Miss
Ashton-Warner presents a picture of
a most remarkable woman-one who
believes in total freedom, even to the
extent of refusing to send her 6-year-
old to school when the bell summons
him. This novel is interesting and
well-written, but a little exasperating
to those of us who may interpret
freedom in a less intransigent way.
The book is worth reading but
shouldn't be taken too seriously by
"Up the Down Staircase" by Bel
Kaufman also is a book about school
and schooling, but with quite a
different approach. In this story, Bel
Kaufman describes from the inside
what goes on in a large city school.
The book has been called simply
"notes from a teacher's waste-
basket"-and that's what it is, a col-
lection of scraps of paper, reports,
lists, comments, and essays which,
because of Mrs. Kaufman's skill, have
continuity and make a fascinating
story. The author is well acquainted
with writers and writing. Her grand-
father was the famous Sholom
Aleichem. Her book is to the point,
wise, and very witty.

On the Isthmus

By Donald Robinson

Each year boys and girls across
the Isthmus slick down cowlicks, tie
polished shoes, and set off for school.
In the Canal Zone it is very impor-
tant to know that to enter our Latin
American kindergarten the child
must be 5 years old before April 1.
To enter U.S. schools kindergarten
he must be 5 years old before
December 1.
For the first grade just add 1 year.
The dates remain the same.
If your child is 5 or 6 and just
entering kindergarten or the first
grade you are almost sure to be
caught unaware . by the sight

Sand answers

How old must I be to obtain a driver's
license?-Ordinarily, you must be
18. However, you may obtain a
license to operate an automobile at
age 17 if you have satisfactorily
completed an approved driver's
training program or hold a valid
States operator's license, and you
need be only 16 to get a license to
ride a motor scooter or motorbike.
May a new resident drive here on a
license issued in his home State?-
Yes, but he must obtain a Canal
Zone license within 30 days.
When will my Canal Zone driver's
license expire?-Your license will
expire on your birthdate, 3 years
from date of issuance.

and gambled on being able to reduce
speed before they could be clocked.
Those days are now in the past, says
Canal Zone Police Chief E. S.
Shipley. "A speeding ticket cannot
be beat that way any longer. When
a motorist now sees the police car in
his rearview mirror, he's already
been clocked. Radar," he pointed
out, "is a highly accurate electronic
device for clocking speeds.
"There's been talk of this and that
way to beat radar, but there is only
one infallible way to beat it-drive
within the speed limit or below it.
As an extra dividend, this will cut
down on accidents, which is what
we're after."

We know, all of us, that each child
differs. Parents, teachers, school
nurses, education specialists know
that starting school is a big step. The
aim in kindergarten and first grade
is to make each child feel at home.
There are a number of ways to
help your child get off to a good
start. To know he has good health,
or to be aware of health problems;
knowing the health status ranks high
on the lists of ways to help him.
The experts tell us that as your
child approaches entrance to school
he needs what you have always given
him-love, acceptance, guidance
which treads an understanding path
between pushing and overprotecting.
As you spend time with your child
you can do a lot to prepare him for
school. Going to the zoo, reading
stories and rhymes, making things
. these can be fun for all of you.
And it will help your child feel at

things, and practice and do for

Two Physicians

Join Preventive

Medicine Unit
Two new physicians have joined
the Preventive Medicine Division.
Dr. Andries de Boer, born in
northern Netherlands, received his
medical degree at the University of
Utrecht. He came to the United
States for his internship in Coving-
ton, Ky., and decided to stay. He had
to return to Europe, however, for
2 years, arriving back in the States
in 1957.
After 5 years of private practice in
South Dakota he decided on preven-
tive medicine and public health as a
career. Dr. de Boer arrived on the
Isthmus after a year of schooling at
the University of Minnesota, where
he received his masters degree in
public health. His wife, Lia, and his
three children accompanied him to
the Zone, where he will be able
to pursue his interests in fishing,
boating, and playing bridge.
Another newcomer is Dr. Edward
J. Kimm. Dr. Kimm replaced
Dr. Melvin L. Ottis as Chief, School
Health Section.
Dr. Kimm grew up in Minnesota
but lived in Ohio for the 12 years
prior to his arrival on the Isthmus.
He received his medical training at
Ohio State University and interned
last year at Gorgas. Kimm lives in
Ancon with his wife, Barbara Jean,
and their four children.

Ship Losses Continue Despite

Latest Radio, Search Methods

Fifteen large merchant ships were
reported missing during 1964. Con-
tinued loss of vessels on the open
sea-missing without a trace-occurs
despite the latest advances in
radio communication and search and
rescue techniques.
Factors contributing to sudden dis-
appearances are the inability to
accurately determine the position of
the lost vessel and the speed with
which some ships go down.
Although most major steamship
lines require of their ships a daily

late will hold a dance at the Tivoli

radio report of the ship's position,
many ships do not comply with the
order. If such a practice were fol-
lowed, rescue and search operations
could begin in much less time.
Among the radio devices being
tested by the U.S. Coast Guard is a
transmitter the size of a cigarette
package that can be attached to a
life jacket. A search plane, by tuning
in on the transmitter, would be able
to locate a man drifting on a raft
more rapidly than by visual methods.
Coast Guard officials believe that
if this and other methods had been
available sooner, two recent ship
mysteries possibly could have been
avoided. One was the American ship
Marine Sulphur Queen, which van-
ished in the Gulf of Mexico in
February 1963., The other was the
December 1963 unsolved disappear-
ance of the Spanish ship Castillo
Montfuich, last reported about 450
miles from the Azores.

Muy Fuerte Para Rosales

Muy buena impresi6n caus6 entire
la fanaticada panamefia el pilgil
mexicano Antonio "Chiquis" Rosales
a pesar de haber perdido su pelea
del domingo pasado frente al cam-
pe6n junior ligero del Istmo, Julio
"Chicha Fuerte" Ruiz, en el combat
a 10 vueltas que sostuvieron en el
tinglado del Gimnasio Nacional de
Rosales, que en su pelea anterior
habia perdido una decision muy es-
trecha y discutida frente al ex cam-
peon mundial del peso pluma Ulti-

a Ruiz en el tercer asalto y lo hizo
sangrar por la nariz desde el cuarto.

ble que su pr6ximo rival sea el ex
campe6n junior ligero del Istmo, Jus-
tiniano Aguilar, un muchacho de
fuerte pegada, pero que no tiene el
poder asimilativo de Ruiz.
Otro candidate para el mexicano
podria ser Antonio Amaya, el actual
campe6n del peso pluma en el Istmo,
aunque para 6ste se tiene planeado
un combat con Ruiz por el titulo
junior ligero de Panami.

en medicine en la Universidad de
Utrecht. Viaj6 a los Estados Unidos
para su internado en Covington, Ken-
tucky, y decidi6 quedarse. Tuvo que

PanamA, para una travesia desde
Pedro Miguel hasta el Lago Gatimn.
Para festefar la ocasi6n la lancha iz6
tambi6n la bandera de Jamaica.
Durante el viaje en la lancha, los
invitados, cuya edad aproximada es
de 75 afios, siendo el mas viejo de
mas de 80, bailaron a los acordes de
la missica de 6rgano ejecutada por
Frankie Azcirraga. Los que no baila-
ron, cantaban y se movian al ritmo
de la mfisica.

moci6n, sera hecha por la Divisi6n
de Mantenimiento, a expenses y pre-
via solicitud del inquilino, cuando

Si la instalaci6n es hecha por otra
organizaci6n, el inquilino sera res-
ponsable por cualquier revision que
haya que hacer a la instalaci6n o
reparaciones que el techo o cualquier
otra parte del edificio necesite debido
a la irresponsabilidad de los que
hicieron la instalaci6n.
La instalaci6n de antenas en los
techos debe hacerse de acuerdo con
las reglas que se encuentran en el
formulario official y que el inquilino
debe Ilenar por triplicado. Estos for-
