U.S. Agencies

To Have Roles

In Bocas Fair

The United States will be well
represented at the Bocas del Toro
Fair September 17, 18, and 19.
Joint participation by the Panama
Canal, the American Embassy, mil-
itary components, USIS, and the
Agency for International Develop-
ment (AID), will take some 200
-people and a fully loaded LST to the
Atlantic island community.
Vehicles carrying PanCanal and
other exhibits will be driven onto
the 327-foot craft at Rodman Naval
Station Tuesday. It will transit the
Canal, arriving at Bocas Septem-
ber 16.
USIS and PanCanal will show
films in special tents and outdoors,
the military will present the popular
astronaut survival exhibit, and AID
will send a representative to judge
cattle entries.
Two Holstein calves are being
donated by the Canal organization,
to be offered as prizes to small cattle-
men with herds of less than 30 head.
Also along on the 18-hour sea
voyage will be Summit Gardens'
Mancha and Gato, to provide rides
for the kiddies during the fair.
Military participation also will
include one or more drops by
skydivers and two concerts daily by
the 26-man 79th Army Band.
There also will be Alliance for
Progress, Gemini space flight, IAGS,
Tropic Test Center and 3d Civil
Affairs Detachment exhibits.
The LST, which carries a crew
of 84, will provide sleeping accom-
modations and food for personnel
during the fair.
Beautiful Bocas del Toro, with its
miles of tree-lined beaches, pro-
vides a perfect setting for the fair.
The capital City of Bocas, located
on an island, is served by two com-
mercial airlines which provide daily
service from Panama and David.
Anyone interested in attending
the big event may make reservations
at COPA or RAPSA airlines. Limited
hotel and boarding house accommo-
dations are available at Bocas and
all visitors are urged to make early
Opening ceremonies are sched-
uled for 8:30 a.m. Friday, Septem-
ber 17, and it is expected that high
Panama officials and dignitaries from
the Canal Zone will attend.

Draft Now 36 Feet;

Runoff 4th Lowest

Vessels arriving at the Canal for
transit now are limited to a maxi-
mum tropical fresh water draft of
36 feet until further notice, Capt.
C. E. Briggs, Jr., Chief of the Pan-
ama Canal's Navigation Division,
has announced.
The previous draft limitation of
35 feet 6 inches, in effect since
August 9, was lifted September 3.
The Gatun Lake level was 82.90
feet Wednesday, compared with
86.58 feet on the same date last year
and 82.80 feet on September 8,
Gatun Lake, at the end of August,
was at an elevation of 82.85 feet,
the same as in August 1957, the last
previous year of such low elevations.
The Gatun Lake elevation of 82.31
feet recorded August 1 was the
lowest in August since the formation
of Gatun Lake in 1914.

Teenage Volunteers

Unheralded Helpers

What does a Canal Zone teenager
do during the school vacation
months if he, or she, wants to work?
There are few jobs for teenagers
in the Canal Zone. The Panama
Canal organization employs only
about 150 high school graduates and
college students during the summer
There are the Pink Girls, of
course, who volunteer for training
and service as hospital aids at Coco
Solo and Gorgas. And there are the
trained American Red Cross volun-
teers. Pink Girls and trained Amer-
ican Red Cross volunteers receive
certificates, and pins, and caps, and
they wear attractive uniforms.
Another hard-working group of
Canal Zone teenagers, though, is
almost unknown. These are the non-
uniformed volunteers, who must
have celebrated their 14th birthday
to be eligible for the program.
These boys and girls wear no uni-
forms. They don't receive certificates
or pins when their summer's work is
over. But this summer a record
number of teenagers volunteered to
do whatever assigned "and saved
everyone a thousand steps on routine
jobs," said one hospital official.
Under supervision, the young teen-
agers worked as messengers and
guides, worked in the clinics, wards
and American Red Cross lounge, and
made the rounds of the patients with
the book cart.
The Reilly twins, Pat and Patsy,
son and daughter of Lt. Col. and
Mrs. Christopher F. Reilly of Fort
Amador, are typical of these non-
uniformed volunteers. They were 15
on July 27 and not only spent the
summer working at Gorgas, but also
brought some of their friends along
as additional volunteers.

Cross Grey Lady. And their older
sister, Mary Rose, 16, is a uniformed
Red Cross volunteer. The twins
chuckle when they announce that
Mary Rose has been an older sister
only since August 27. Their own
15th birthday on July 27 gave them
the unique pleasure of being the
same age as Mary Rose for 1 month
at least.
Mary Rose Reilly has her certifi-
cate, pin, and cap, and when she
completes a total of 75 hours' volun-
teer service in a 12-month period
will receive a stripe "as a sort of
promotion." Few of the teenage vol-
unteers have stripes, however, since
they are only able to serve during
the school vacation.
Miss Vera Mobley, American Red
Cross hospital field director, ex-
pressed great pride in the uniformed
and non-uniformed volunteer teen-
agers who spend their summer vaca-
tions at work helping others in the
At the start of the summer's pro-
gram she meets with the young vol-
unteers and shows them, on a chart,
where the greatest needs are. Mutual
agreement is reached in regard to
assignments and the teenagers also
agree to serve half days. "All served
more," says Miss Mobley.
Nearly all the non-uniformed vol-
unteers have expressed the wish to
take the American Red Cross volun-
teer 6-hour basic training course
next June. The hours they served
this year as non-uniformed volun-
teers will be credited retroactively,
their on-the-job training this summer
counting with the classroom work.

CZC Chorus


Night Section

The night section of the Canal
Zone College Chorus (FA101B) is
arranged primarily for adult musi-
cians of the community who enjoy
informal rehearsals of rewarding
choral literature. Again this year,
the chorus will be conducted by Dr.
Robert Kennedy with Mrs. Subert
Turbyfill as accompanist.
Meetings are scheduled from 7:30
until 10 p.m. Tuesday in the College
Auditorium beginning September 14.
Part-time students may register for
credit (one semester hour) or non-
credit at $7 for the semester. Any
full-time student may add this
activity to his schedule without extra
Although previous musical experi-
ence may be helpful, it is not essen-
tial for satisfying membership in the
group. A varied program of music,
ranging from folk songs and spirit-
uals to standard religious literature,
is planned, and there will be the
usual Christmas concerts, which may
again provide opportunities to sing
for some Latin American audiences.
Interested persons are urged to
bring several friends and register at
the college. Forms for registration
may be obtained at the college office
in La Boca. For further information
call Balboa 2380, 2676, or 4590.

Cadet Completes

12,000-Mile Cruise
Cadet John R. Barrett, a 1964
graduate of Balboa High School, has
just completed a 12,000-mile, 10-
week training cruise as a 3d class-
man (sophomore) at the State Uni-
versity of New York Maritime
He is the son of the late John T.
Barrett, Jr., former Canal pilot, who
died in March. His mother, Mrs.
Helen M. Barrett, left the Isthmus
in June and now resides in Jackson-
ville, Fla.
Ports visited by the 489-foot
training ship Empire State IV were
in Spain, Italy, France, Norway, and
Ireland. This summer's cruise is one
of three cruises which are a part of
the 4-year college education the
Maritime College provides. Barrett,
an engineering major, will resume
his studies September 21.

self mathematical patterns. He is
encouraged to ponder what he has
discovered and thus reach general-
izations. In this manner, Peter's
energy and enthusiasm are released
and favorable attitudes toward
mathematics are developed.
Your first reaction to some of the
ideas in modern math may well be:
"That is not the way I learned it.
That was not mentioned by my
teacher." All this may very well be
true, but this does not mean that all
these ideas have been discovered
since you and I were in school.
These ideas are "modern" only in
the sense that they are for the first
time being presented to students at
this particular grade level, and in
the manner in which they are being
Here are a few of the objectives
of modern math:
1. A proper balance between
reasoning and drill.-Although com-
putation and skill development are
still needed and taught, the em-
phasis in the "new look" in mathe-
matics is on the student's discovery
and appreciation of structure, pat-
terns, and continuity. In other words,
the "why" of computing is now
being strongly stressed. If Peter has
a better understanding of the basic
principles involved and uses a more
meaningful approach, perhaps he
will be able to cut down appreciably
the amount of time he would other-

mental ideas of the theory of sets
faster than some of his under-
graduate students. Perhaps this also
serves to prove that the younger the
student, and the earlier we start, the
better chance modern math has of
3. Increased pleasure in learning.
Mathematics has certain appealing
and highly motivating qualities, if
taught in a manner that is meaning-
ful and enjoyable. Modern math has
done much to remove the monotony,
boredom, and apathy which may'
have plagued you and me in our
early experience with mathematics.
Your son Peter will discover
through modern math that there are
number systems instead of a number
system. He will acquire a mathe-
matical language somewhat different
from yours, but more precise and
more complete. His understanding
of the meaning of addition, sub-
traction, multiplication, division, and
fractions will increase considerably
when he has the opportunity to
explore these ideas with the help of
the many intriguing teaching aids
now in use; such as the number line,
the abacus, the counting frame,
magnetic discs and boards, and even
the lowly popsicle stick.
A recent article in Time magazine
states that on their first day in
second grade, 200 Urbana, Ill.,
schoolchildren were told to add 19
and 3. None of them got the correct
answer. Apparently, thinking 9 plus

confused and somehow most of them
arrived at an answer of 112. Using

were next shown 19 cookies and
asked how many cookies they would
have, if having 19, they were given
3 more cookies. Now this struck
home. They could visualize 19
cookies and it was more meaningful
and easier for them to add 3 more
cookies to their 19 cookies. This time
almost every child answered cor-
rectly "22."
Old or traditional math is rote
learning of many unexplained rules,
such as "carrying," for instance.
Modern math tries to show the step-
by-step process of an operation. This
enables Peter to visualize and under-
stand each step taken. This increases
his understanding and makes the
computation more meaningful and
much more enjoyable for him. This,
in turn, tends to facilitate his learn-
ing. In this step-by-step process,
the teacher is also benefited because
he or she is able to follow Peter's
thinking pattern, is able to detect
an error at the point where it is
made, and is able to correct, help,
and guide Peter much more effec-

charge and will be conducted by
our highly qualified instructor, Mrs.
Theresa Moore. From this seminar
you will derive many wonderful
ideas which will convince you that
this is a challenging and an inter-

While taking a summer course,
"Modern Math for Elementary

2. Adjustment of pace and con-
tent to the rapid expansion of scien-
tific knowledge.-This means that
the content and pace of mathematics
courses must undergo considerable
change and adjustment to enable
mathematics to maintain and spear-
head the rapidly accelerating scien-
tific development. This is why cer-
tain mathematical concepts are
being taught much earlier than they
were in the past.
Fortunately, children seem to be
naturally attuned to mathematical
abstraction; perhaps because it is
verging on pure fantasy. One of the
best-loved children's books, "Alice's
Adventures in Wonderland," was
written by a professional mathemati-
cian whose pen name was Lewis

that he used to lecture on infinite
sets to kindergarten classes. Dr.
Kasner found that the children

Same Items, Cooperation of Occupants Asked

Same Shelf,

Two Prices?

Two cans of the same beans on
the shelf at different prices?
That's going to be the situation
at retail stores and service centers in
the future, but there's a good reason
for it.
The former Supply Division policy
was to re-mark all items immediately
when a price was raised. That policy
is being changed, and though it may
cause a little confusion, the shopper
will realize a small benefit.
When the price of a self-service
supermarket item increases, the
stock in the selling area now will be
held at the old price; only when
new stock is put out will it be
marked with the new price. This ex-
plains why two cans of beans-same
size, same brand-may carry differ-
ent prices in different stores and
even in the same store. However,
when there is a decrease, the man-
ager may remove the last few items
of shelf stock and re-mark them at
the lower price for the consumer's
These procedures will also apply
to the housewares and drygoods
merchandise wherever possible, par-
ticularly in the self-selection areas,
but not in those items where sizes
and colors are involved or to high-
priced floor samples.
This change should eliminate the
criticism heard from customers who
object to prices being raised on items
that had already been price-marked.
As for the two prices, the cus-
tomers who watch what they pay for
things will soon clear the shelf
of the lower priced goods. The
change will be effective beginning
September 13.

President Issues

Set of Rules on

Ethical Conduct
New standards of ethical conduct
for Federal officials and employees
were recently issued by President
Johnson to avoid possible conflicts
of interest.
The new rules are spelled out in
an Executive order that consolidates,
clarifies, and strengthens previous
standards of ethical conduct for
executive branch personnel.
In issuing the order, President
Johnson said, "Government per-
sonnel bear a special responsibility
to be fair and impartial in their deal-
ings with those who have business
with the Government. We cannot
tolerate conflicts of interest or favor-
itism-or even conduct which gives
the appearance that such actions are
occurring-and it is our intention to
see that this does not take place in
the Federal Government."
The order requires all officials
appointed by the President and re-
porting directly to him and certain
other Federal officials and employees
to file statements of their financial
interests. It also imposes strict limita-
tions on the acceptance of gifts,
entertainment, and favors by execu-
tive branch personnel.
The order emphasizes the strong
intention of the administration that
the affairs of Government be con-
ducted openly, honorably, honestly,
and impartially.
One of its main purposes is to en-
courage individuals faced with ques-
tions involving subjective judgment
to seek counsel and guidance. Thus,
the Chairman of the Civil Service
Commission has been instructed to
work with each department and
agency head to establish within his
organization designated individuals
who can provide the guidance and
interpretation necessary to relate
general principles to specific situa-

Eloisa Davis, criada en la Casa de
Huespedes Tivoli, entr6 al servicio
del Canal de PanamA, por primera
vez, hace 24 afios. Es persona a la
cual no le gusta hacerse notar y hace
sus labores calladamente. Para to-
marle esta foto, tuvimos que sor-
prenderla cuando se encontraba
arreglando unos maceteros en uno
de los balcones que dan a los cuar-
tos de los huespedes. Naci6 en la
ciudad de Panami y su escuela pri-
maria la curs6 en la Escuela Nicolas
Pacheco, que entonces se encontra-
ba, seg6in nos dice ella misma, en la
Calle 16 Oeste. Vive en la ciudad de
Panama, en pleno barrio de Santa
Ana. En sus moments libres, la lec-
tura y la costura son su mayor dis-
tracci6n. Gusta de novelas romin-
ticas. Le gusta much pasear en el
campo, pero tiene poco tiempo para
ello. Le gust6 much el Rio Pacora,
que visit en una ocasi6n. "Pero co-
nozco muy poco de Panami", nos
dice, "el interior que yo conozco,
Ilega solamente hasta La Chorrera".
Nos despedimos y calladamente, de
la misma manera que la encontra-
mos, sigue hacienda sus quehaceres.

Capitan C. E. Briggs, Jr., Jefe de la
Division de Navegaci6n del Canal

La lirnitaci6n previa de calado de
35 pies 6 pulgadas, efectiva desde el
9 de agosto, fue levantada el 3 de
El pasado mi6rcoles, el nivel del
Lago Gatin era de 82.90 pies, mien-
tras que el afio pasado, para la
misma fecha, era de 86.58 pies y el
8 de septiembre de 1957, era de
82.80 pies.
El Lago Gatuin, al final de agosto,
estaba en una elevaci6n de 82.85
pies, similar a la de agosto de 1957,
el 61timo afio anterior de baja eleva-
ci6n. La elevaci6n del Lago Gatiin
de 82.31 pies, registrada el 19 de
agosto, fue la mas baja en agosto

desde la formaci6n del Lago Gatuin
en 1914.
El Jefe Hidr6grafo del Canal de
PanamA, T. C. Henter informa que
la baja precipitaci6n de lluvia fue
registrada en todas las estaciones
meteorol6gicas del Canal de Pana-
mA, con excepci6n de Crist6bal, el
mes pasado. Una rara tormenta que
sopl6 desde el mar inund6 a Crist6-
bal con 3.90 pulgadas de lluvia el
14 de agosto.
Las cifras en la Oficina HidrogrA-
fica del Canal de Panama demues-
tran que el desagiie hacia la cuenca
del Lago Gatin en agosto fue el

nivel de seguridad.

lQuien es Responsable?
Cuando sucede un accident generalmente la culpa recae en
alguien o en algo. Y algunas veces nunca Ilega a conocerse la causa
del accident debido a que la responsabilidad de la investigaci6n
pasa de mano en mano, se culpa a un defecto del equipo, al "otro"
que se descuid6 y muchas otras excusas similares, Ilegando finalmente
al punto donde el asunto se da por olvidado.
En todas las fases de la Prevenci6n de Accidentes se trata de pro-
mover la seguridad por medio de: leyes, reglas, regulaciones, ensayos,
entrenamientos, disposiciones y equipos de protecci6n. Todo esto es
de valor indudable, pero en el anAlisis final la seguridad debe ser
implantada en la mente del trabajador. El deseo de seguridad debe
ser creado en cada individuo, sin excepci6n. Nunca estaremos seguros
a menos que lo querramos y tratemos de estarlo.
Un trabajador puede hacer mAs para protegerse y proteger a su
compauiero de trabajo que todas las reglas y regulaciones de seguri-
dad del mundo. Es verdad que son muchos los factors que inter-
vienen en un accident: falla del equipo, entrenamiento defectuoso,
falta de resguardos, etc., pero el peligro mas grande reside en el
trabajadcr mismo. Cuando, por ejemplo, 61 manipula o estA cerca
de una tuberia en movimiento, colocando las cufias de la tuberia
o usando un cable para enroscar tuberia, 61 debe ser capaz de reco-
nocer cualquier peligro inherente al uso de estos equipos. Si un
trabajador no tiene conciencia de los posibles peligros, no mantiene
sus ojos abiertos, ,quidn podrA hacerlo por l61? Muy a menudo es
dificil que aceptemos que siempre debemos esperar lo inesperado
(un tubo que cae, un cable que golpea), cuando todo marchaba bien
como era de esperar.
La meta final en la prevenci6n de accidents es, lesiones con
tiempo perdido: cero. Sin embargo, existen muchas barreras para
alcanzar este fin, siendo la mAs important de todas la mente humana,
especialmente en lo referente a seguridad. Muchos piensan que
"aqui no puede suceder" y que es "el otro" el que debe tomar las
Cuando los accidents se repiten ello significa que alguien no estA
tomando la seguridad con seriedad. Los resultados pueden ser:
amputaciones, invalidez permanent y hasta la muerte.
Pensando, podemos hacer mas para protegernos como asi tambidn
a los que nos rodean, que todas las reglas, regulaciones, resguardos,
escritos o invents. Pensemos antes de actuar.

Al ir de Compras

A los Almacenes
Qu6 es eso? dDos latas del mis-
mo tamafio y de los mismos frijoles,
a diferentes precious?
Esa serA una pregunta muy
comun en los almacenes de la Zona
del Canal dentro de poco, pero
habra una buena raz6n para ello.
La costumbre de la Divisi6n de
Abastos ha sido, hasta ahora, la de
volver a marcar los articulos, al
moment de aumentarse el precio.
Esa costumbre va a cambiar y, a
pesar de que ello cause alguna con-
fusi6n, los compradores se ahorrarAn
alg6n dinero.
De ahora en adelante, cuando los
precious de los articulos suban en las
secciones de autoservicio del super-
mercado, los que se encuentren ya
a la venta seguirAn con el mismo
precio, y solamente Ia mercancia
nueva que vaya al piso de ventas
serai la que se marcarai con el nuevo
precio. Ello explica por qu6 dos latas
de frijoles, del mismo tamafio y de
la misma marca, tendrAn diferentes
precious, en el mismo almac6n. Sin
embargo, cuando el precio dismi-
nuya, el gerente podrA retirar los
articulos que estin a la venta y vol-
verlos a marcar con el precio nuevo,
cuando 6ste sea mis bajo, para
beneficiary al consumidor.
Este mismo sistema se aplicarA a
los utensilios del hogar y a la mer-
cancia seca, siempre que ello sea
possible, particularmente en las Areas
de autoselecci6n, pero no a aquellos
articulos en que haya tamafios y
colors que considerar o a models
en exhibici6n de alto valor.
En cuanto a los precious, los clien-
tes que se fijan en lo que pagan,
muy pronto limpiarAn los anaqueles
de los articulos de bajo precio. El
cambio comenzara a funcionar el
13 de septiembre.
