Lid Lifted

On Cashing

Of Checks
Recurrent issues overshadowed
new items last week at the first U.S.
Civic Council Executive session held
since the 3-month summer interlude.
Requests for broader check cashing
privileges became a topic that re-
ceived considerable attention by Civic
Council representatives.
Mrs. Doris Sanders, Cristobal,
Margarita, and Brazos Heights first
brought the matter up, asking that
the limit on check cashing be raised
from $50 to $100 in the retail stores.

The limitation on cashing per-
sonal checks as an accommodation
for employees of the Panama Canal
organization, by PanCanal agent-
cashiers, has been increased from
a maximum of $50 to a maximum
of $100.
This increase will assist patrons
in having sufficient cash to pay for
groceries in check-out lines, in
view of the recent abolishment of
charge sales in supermarket areas.

People, especially those who do not
have easy access to a bank, need more
than $50 cash to cover their grocery
shopping, incidental purchases and
pocket money, she told the session.
Capt. Howard Buehler, Pacific
Civic Council president, asked that a
$100 ceiling also be extended to the
Pacific side.
Captain Buehler said the Pacific
Civic Council wants the showing of
fewer adult type movies, especially
on weekends, and more family films
at the Canal Zone theaters. Also, he
reported, the people would like strict
enforcement of age limits set for
adult films. Buehler asked if some-
thing could be done about showing
previews of adult type movies to the
audiences who go to see family
Lieutenant Governor Parfitt pointed
out that the lurid parts of the adult
movies are shown in the coming
Captain Buehler also asked that

Col. David B. Conard, director of
the Inter-American Geodetic Survey,
Fort Clayton, will be guest speaker at
the meeting of the Canal Zone Col-
lege Club on Monday, October 3, at

Christmas Mailing?

.. So Soon?

It's not too soon to be thinking of
Christmas mailing.
Postal Division recommended dates
for Christmas mailing from the Canal
Zone are: Surface mail (including
APOs)-October 15 to November 5;
United States, November 25 to
December 4.
Airmail, overseas (including APOs)
-December 1 to December 10;
United States, December 10 to
December 15.
Although actual Christmas mailing
has not started, Post Office employees
report there is an increase in money
order buying to pay for Christmas
shopping in the United States. With
a 10 to 12 percent increase each year
in mailing volume, Postal employees
would appreciate early Christmas
mailing in order to give better service
and avoid big backlogs at Christmas

Distress Call

Relay Brings

The signalmen who operate the
Flamenco Radio and Signal Station
may not look like angels, but to the
official party adrift off the coast of
Panama aboard the launch Seven C's,
the voice of the station radio operator
had a "celestial" tone.
This is what Fernando Castillo,
First Secretary of the Spanish Em-
bassy in Panama, said in a letter of
praise and gratitude after the men at
Flamenco had relayed his message
for help to a USARSO J boat which
towed the launch in distress back to
The letter, addressed to Maj. Gen.
James D. Alger, was relayed to
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt.
As a result, a letter of commenda-
tion was sent by Capt. D. A. Dertien,
Chief of the Navigation Division, to
Fernando Ostrea, Supervisory Signal-
man, who is boss of the 5 men on
duty at Flamenco as well as the 10
men who operate the La Pita and
Gamboa Signal Stations.
In the letter, Captain Dertien said,
"I am pleased to receive a communi-
cation from the First Secretary of the
Embassy of Spain in Panama wherein
he expressed his thanks and apprecia-
tion for the assistance rendered by

Dunsmoor Given

Balboa Award

The Vasco Ndifiez de Balboa award
from the Republic of Panama, signify-
ing Panama's official recognition of
the humanitarian work of Forrest G.
Dunsmoor, retiring Panama Canal
Deputy Executive Secretary, was pre-
sented him Wednesday night, climax-
ing many awards given him the past
week, including the highest honors
from the Canal organization.
Innumerable social gatherings have
been held in Panama and in the Canal
Zone in his honor, and there was even
a *Forrest G. Dunsmoor Day at the
Gamboa Golf Club last Saturday.
The latter came as a complete sur-
prise to the honor guest, who thought
he had been invited to play a four-
some. About 30 of his friends joined
him on the golf course and then at
a luncheon in his honor.
Open house was held in the Office
of the Executive Secretary last Friday
afternoon, and the honor guest was
presented a gift from his many friends
in the organization.
At a staff party Friday evening,
Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., presented Dunsmoor his re-
tirement certificate, showing 36 years,
8 months, 22 days' U.S. Government
service. Governor Fleming also made
the presentation of a Distinguished
Service Award in official recognition
and commendation for his extensive
knowledge of the Panama Canal orga-
nization and Canal Zone activities
which contributed invaluably to the
management of Canal Zone affairs.
"His humanitarian accomplish-
ments in his official duties and welfare
and community affairs have earned
him the acclaim and respect of all
residents of this area," the citation
said. A check accompanied this award.
Dunsmoor received a Key to the
Locks certificate naming him "Pro-
tector of the Inner Sanctum."
An album was presented him with
photographs covering his entire
career in the Canal Zone and the
many other awards included an Amer-
ican National Red Cross certificate
and an Aid to Handicapped Persons
A native of Wisconsin, Dunsmoor
attended the University of. Minnesota
and came to the Canal Zone in the
early 1930's as a member of the
U.S. Army.
He joined the Canal organization in
1936 as a clerk in the former Execu-
tive Department and was promoted
to Administrative Assistant in the same
Department in 1944.

Says Panama


Panama and the Panama Canal
apparently have a new unofficial pro-
motion pitch man-Hank Greenspun,
owner-publisher of the Las Vegas
(Nev.) Sun.
An excerpt from his column in a
recent issue of his paper said:
"On my vacation I fell in love with
a country. Panama is absolutely de-
lightful. Some say it's hot. It is-a
sort of sticky heat caused by extre-
mely high humidity, but when the
rain falls softly almost every after-
noon the air is cool and clean. The
countryside is beautiful with the vivid
green of hlush vegetation contrasting
sharply with the bright blue of the
sky. It's lovely. The people are as
hospitable as their country beautiful.
"There's so much one could write
about the Panama Canal, one of the
world's spectaculars: or the silent
dignity of the centuries old ruins of
Old Panama where the ghosts of
early conquerors and bloodthirsty
pirates still wander through the vine
covered stone buildings.
"There's really so much to tell, but
a few quickie impressions should
"In the gambling casinos-yes there
are such-men have to wear suits and
ties or they are courteously refused
"The sidewalk cafes are delightful-
no flies, which was surprising in this

the poor displayed outdoor clothes-
lines filled with incredibly clean
wash-and this without any of the
electric conveniences we all take for

Rules Change Made

For Bowling Tourney

The PanCanal Bowling Association
has announced that the 26th Annual
City Tournament will be held at the
Balboa Bowling Center, on consecu-
tive weekends, starting February 17.
Stuart Reed has been named tourna-
ment manager and Hod Jenner,
tournament secretary.
An important change made in the
City Tournament rules allows, for the
first time, equal prizes to top scorers
in scratch and handicap classes. Pre-
vious tournaments provided trophies
to the champions in both classes but
all cash prizes went to the high
handicap scores.

"It looked just like that" was the
comment made by Otho J. Ballard
as he pointed to the mural in the
rotunda of the Administration Build-
ing showing the digging of the Canal
through the Continental Divide. "It's
all changed," he added, a bit over-
whelmed by what he saw on his
return to the Isthmus after more than
50 years.
Ballard, who is today raising
tobacco, corn, cattle, and hogs on one
of the larger farms in the Blue Grass
State, was among the first U.S.
soldiers of the 10th Infantry, Com-
pany L, from Kentucky, who came
to the Panama Canal to do guard
duty in September 1911.
There were sailors at the terminal
cities, he recalls, but his company,
stationed at Las Cascadas, was the
first Army coent aingent at the Canal
Zone. He was a private making $15
a month.
He recalls that the Tivoli Guest
House, which had opened a few years
earlier, was out of reach financially
for a young soldier. To supplement
his meager earnings, Ballard ran a
laundry for the Army, using discarded
French dirt dump cars as vats with
furnaces built around them to heat
the water.
With about 1,500 soldiers in the
area, Ballard soon improved his status
quo, financially, at least, and the
memories of this 3-year tour on the
Isthmus were pleasant enough to
make him want to come back and
see it all once again. He left the
Panama Canal in January .1914, only
a few months before it was opened
to traffic.
He remembers Dr. Gorgas very

Canal de PanamA, pero durante todos sus afios de servicio al Canal, ha estado
trabajando con la Capitania del Puerto de Balboa. Empez6 como mensajero,
en la Oficina de Control de Trafico Maritimo; luego lo ascendieron a Ofici-
nista de TrAfico y al fin, lleg6 a su present posici6n, que desempefia a
satisfacci6n de sus compafieros y de sus jefes. "Pero", dice, "no me quiero
quedar en lo que soy, como human, tengo todas las intenciones de seguir
ascendiendo". El Sr. Salas reside en Villa CAceres, ciudad de PanamA, en la
barriada de los empleados del Canal, que se construy6 con fondos de la
Agencia Internacional de Desarrollo. Sus studios primaries los hizo en la
Escuela Primaria de Balboa y los secundarios en la Escuela Superior de la

todos sus compafieros de studio y muy especialmente de sus maestros y pro-
fesores. Hace 5 afios contrajo matrimonio con la Sra. Dalys Maria de Salas

hits ni carreras. Le encanta hacer citas con su esposa y salir, en plan mAs bien
de enamorados que de casados. Los sAbados en la noche, salen y van a los
centros nocturnos de la ciudad a recorder los tiempos en que estaban
enamorados. Su mayor deseo es hacer carrera con el Canal de PanamA.
