extremely favorably on the Panama

turally pleasing buildings in the
Canal Zone, was completed in 1965
and formally opened in November.
The school was one of the many
School Division buildings and im-
provements designed and built
during the time that Colonel Picker-

a la Zona del Canal procedente del

El Coronel Leininger es graduado
de la Academia Militar de Estados
Unidos en West Point, de la clase
de 1946, y tiene el grado de Master
en Ingenieria Civil.

La goleta Pilgrim, de motor auxi-
liar, parecia que jams podria llegar
a PanamA, en su viaje de California
a Jamaica. Su viaje fue malogrado
por fallas en el motor y por la falta
de viento.
La esbelta nave, de 80 pies de
largo, con su fascinante historic y
pintoresca tripulaci6n, finalmente
ancl6 en el Club de Yates de Balboa
en donde ha estado siendo reparada
por casi 2 meses. El Pilgrim fue la
estrella de una series popular de tele-
visi6n, "Aventuras en el Paraiso", y
es propiedad del Capitan Bruce Mar-
tin, que lo manda y del cantante de
aires populares Glenn Yarborough.
Su tripulaci6n consiste en el Capi-
tan Martin, su esposa, su hijo Bruce,
de 16 afios, y Lester Church, de 21,
surafricano, que fue uno de los dos
j6venes que durante 3 semanas estu-
vieron perdidos en las selvas del
Darien durante el mes de mayo.
Martin piensa completar la tripula-
ci6n en el Caribe, done piensa dedi-
carse a fletar el Pilgrim, durante la
temporada de turismo.
El motor del Pilgrim se dano6 fuera
de Punta Mala, en Panama, y debido
a la falta de viento y a las fuertes
corrientes, varias veces deriv6 fuera
de rumbo. Lo que debi6 haber sido
un viaje de 2 dias, de Punta Mala a
Balboa, tom6 2 semanas. Fue remol-
cado parte del camino por various bar-
cos y finalmente, lleg6 a Balboa,
remolcado, desde la Isla de Taboga.
"Nos faltaban 80 millas para llegar
cuando se dafi6 el motor", dijo el
Capitin Martin. "Pero derivamos
fuera de curso. Cuando finalmente,
llegamos al Club de Yates de Balboa,
habiamos recorrido 130 millas. Vara-
mos varias veces, pero nunca estu-
vimos en verdadero peligro; teniamos
suficiente comida y agua".
Construido en 1932, el Pilgrim ha
visto la fama y el anonimato; y ha
sabido de cuidados y de abuso. Fue
originalmente construido para un
acaudalado ciudadano estadouniden-
se, como regalo de su hijo, para que
lo usara en un viaje alrededor del
mundo. Despues de navegar por 2
afios fue vendido a Seth Parker, per-
sonalidad conocida en ]a radio de
los afios treinta. Parker se lo vendi6
a un resident de la costa del Paci-
fico, que al morir se lo dej6 a su
iglesia. El actor Lewis Stone fue el
siguiente duefio.
Cuando comenz6 la II Guerra
Mundial, fue adquirido por la Guar-
dia de Costa y con una tripulaci6n
de 26 hombres fue usado como
buque escuela. Despu6s de la guerra,
fue vendido otra vez, en esta ocasi6n
a una expedici6n de cazadores de
tiburones que operaba en Centro
America, recogiendo aletas e higado
de tiburones.

Perdi6 algo de su belleza durante
este period, pero lleg6 al punto mas
bajo de su carrera cuando fue ven-
dido a un promoter californiano, que
le quit6 sus mistiles y lo convirti6
en lanch6n fluvial para turistas. El
negocio no result y el duefio estuvo
a punto de venderlo como deshecho.
Fue entonces cuando otro cali-
forniano, Harry McGill, lo compr6,
se install con su familiar abordo y lo
remodel. A partir de entonces, el
Pilgrim ha aparecido en varias peli-
culas y luego se convirti6 en el Tiki
de la series national de television
"Aventuras en el Paraiso".
