Panamanian Student Assistants

Will Report for Duty Tuesday

Students from Panama secondary
schools and the Universidad Santa
Maria La Antigua comprise the first
contingent of employees in the vaca-
tion employment program and will
report for duty Tuesday.
The program is divided into two
phases, the second scheduled to begin
on February 20 and extend through
April 8.
The group reporting January 3 will
work through February 18. These
students are regularly enrolled in uni-
versities in Panama and secondary
schools in the Latin American Schools
in the Canal Zone, as well as Panama

secondary schools. They must have
completed their junior year in high
school or equivalent and be 16 years
of age or over. They also must submit
evidence of satisfactory scholastic
achievement during the preceding
school year.
Purpose of the program is to
enable to Canal agencies to take
advantage of the availability of serv-
ices of high school and university
students during the annual vacation
period. An equally important purpose
is the opportunity for work experi-
ence and on-the-job training which
these students have. All units furnish
this training to the students.

A Distinguished Service Award is presented by Governor Fleming to B. E.
Lowande, who retired Wednesday from his position as Chief of the Canal
Zone Customs Division. Lowande had more than 35 years of continuous
U.S. Government service to his credit and had been head of the Customs
Division since February 1961. In addition to the award, Lowande was given
a check for $150.

Brass Polishing Can Be a Science

One of the largest and most beauti-
ful brass collections on the Isthmus
belongs to Florence Burns who
retired from PanCanal this month
after 9 years service with the Supply
Division. Mrs. Burns, who started
her brass collection about 5 years ago
with the purchase of a cocktail set,
has accumulated 114 pieces, plus a
14-piece punch bowl set, and a 68-
piece table flatware service set.
Among the many lovely brass
articles are several unusual pieces,
such as a coffee pot which is con-
sidered an antique. The coffee pot has
a hole in the middle for inserting a
chunk of charcoal to keep the coffee
hot after it is removed from the fire.
Other antiques in the collection in-
clude two pairs of Colombian stirr-
ups, a Colombian chocolate pot, a
ship's clock, and a kerosene lamp
from the Panama Railroad.
The collection includes a myriad of
items such as, ashtrays, incense

burners, butterflies, bells, silent
butlers, ice buckets, chimes, coasters,
a kettle, samovars, trivets, trays, vases,
and ever so many more beautiful
The Indian shopkeepers in Panama
know Florence Burns well and put
away rare and unusually interesting
pieces until she has a chance to see
them. She usually takes a friend with
her when she goes shopping for
brass which has made a "memory
treasure" of each item.
Most people would shudder at the
thought of keeping so much brass
shined. Not so Florence Burns, who
has brass polishing down to a science.
Periodic cleaning is done about every
6 weeks for shelf pieces. Other items
which are functional, such as ashtrays
and tableware, are cleaned as they
need it. She recommends a rinse
in a weak solution of ammonia, fol-
lowed by a very light coat of Brasso,
then after buffing, a light coat of

powered brass cleaner is applied and
lightly buffed again.
She takes care of polishing her col-
lection in 30 to 45 minute sessions
during which time 15 to 20 small
pieces or one large item such as the
coffee table can be brought back to
full luster.
When the project is a major one,
for example, when she returns from
vacation, she automates the polishing
by using the buffing attachment of
the electric drill.
She recommends that the brass
items be used as often as possible
since use enhances their beauty. She
prefers Indian brass, and, Korean
brass is her second choice. She also
'likes Colombian brass.
Florence Burns hopes to continue
making friends and acquaintances
through her brass collection when
she moves to the United States in

.J f. .. -..,

Polishing one of her many unusual items of brass is Mrs. Florence Burns, who has the finest collection on the Isth-
mus. Now retired, she will take the collection with her to the United States in February.

San Bias Doesn't Always

Mean a Group of Islands

(Pictures in Spanish section)
San Blas, a common term for Pan-
ama Canal Dredging Division em-
ployees at Gamboa, is not a group of
islands. San Bias is on the north end
of Gamboa, very close to the Panama
Railroad tracks on firm land.
Very few train passengers know the
name of the area, but all of them
wonder about the use of the huge
amount of odd equipment, which
appears to be "stranded" all over the
But, first, the name is not San Blas.
Officially, the area is known as "Sand
Blast Area," but to Spanish speaking
people it is easier to call it San Blas,
and the men working there "san-
Heart of the area is a covered
shack housing machines that mix fine,
moistened Chame sand with the com-
pressed air. The air-sand mixture,
coming through pipes under tremen-
dous pressure, is the primary cleaning
material used by the 17 men. who
work there.
"We have been very lucky to find
one of the best silicon sands in the
world," says J. DeW. Tate, Acting
Assistant Chief of the Dredging
Cleaning procedure is relatively
simple: sandblasters direct the stream
of moisted sand under pressure
toward the barnacle-covered parts of
the equipment. "There is nothing like
sand under pressure to do a perfect
job of cleaning," says Hernn Bar-
sallo, one of the Dredging Division
engineering technicians.
To anyone not familiar with the
Panama Canal, this would appear as
a minor job, but its importance is
tremendous. At the "San Blas" area,
anchor buoys, light buoys, pontoon
cylinders, marking buoys vital to
settlements on Gatun Lake shores,

and much other essential equipment '
is cleaned and maintained. Without
this work done at the sand blast area,
much of this equipment soon would
be out of operation.
So . when Gamboa people
talk about San Blas, they may not be
referring to the beautiful islands on
the Atlantic coast of Panama.

flowers are to be found in the double

produce nothing but solid green

the white portions do not help in the

branches are hardier and eventually
the whole plant will revert to normal

Forecastle? It's

A Seagoing Castle
Walled cities and castles provided
the most practical method of defense
in medieval times. Castles also went
to sea! Warships of the period were
fitted with raised structures fore and
aft from which the bowmen and
slingers could bombard the deck of
an enemy vessel. These structures
were known as the Fore Castle and
After Castle.
Since the area up forward was
traditionally set aside for crew's
quarters on sailing ships, the word
forecastle gradually assumed a dual
meaning-the forward end of the ship
as well as the hands' berthing area.
Even though crews now generally
live amidships or back aft, the term
is frequently used when referring to
their living quarters.

Orders for Ships

Built in Japan

Far Above Target

Foreign orders placed with Jap-
anese shipyards in the past 6 months
have been 50 above the target pro-
jected for the entire fiscal year, the
Japan Shipbuilding Industry Asso-
ciation has announced.
Orders to the end of September,
the halfway mark, came to 4.5 million
gross tons.
Japan has led the world in ship-
building for 10 years, and last year
launched 44 percent of the world
tonnage output. There are 34 yards
able to turn out vessels of 10,000
tons or more.
Cost of ship construction in Japan,
done in some yards by methods using
prefabrication techniques, is 10 to
30 percent below that of Europe, and
50 percent below the United States,
according to industry authorities.
Japanese yards will realize approxi-
mately $790 million for the export of
the 127 vessels ordered.

Esta linda mufiequita vio su Navidad complete con ]a mufieca que sostiene
entire las manos. Le fue entregada por los miembros del Club de Auxiliares
de Enfermeria de la Escuela Secundaria de Crist6bal. Unos 60 niiios tuvieron
sus regalos de Navidad, en una fiestecita que les brindaron los miembros
del club que viajaron a la poblaci6n de Los Negros, situada a orillas del
Lago Gatin, en una lancha de la Policia de la Zona del Canal. Evelyne
Legrand, miembro del club, sostiene en su regazo a la pequefinuela, que
parece estar viendo a Santa Claus.

Una de las mas grades y hermo-
sas colecciones de objetos de bronze
que existen en el Istino pertenece a
Florence Burns, que se jubil6 este
mes despues de 9 afios de servicio
con la Divisi6n de Abastos, del Canal
de PanamA. La Sra. Burns, que em-
pez6 su colecci6n de objetos de
bronce hace unos 5 afios con la com-
pra de un juego de coctel, posee ahora
114 piezas, ademis de un juego de
ponchera de 14 piezas y un juego
de cubiertos de bronce de 68 piezas.
Entre los muchos y atractivos ar-
ticulos de bronce hay varias piezas
raras tales como una cafeteria que se
consider una antigiiedad. La cafe-
tera tiene un agujero en el medio para
insertar un carb6n encendido, que
mantiene el caf6 caliente akn despusI
de haberlo bajado de la estufa. Dos
pares de estribos colombianos, una
chocolatera, tambi6n colombiana, un
reloj de barco y una lAmpara de kero-
sin del Ferrocarril de PanamA, cons-
tituyen otras de las antigtiedades de
esa colecci6n.
La colecci6n incluye una miriada
de articulos tales como ceniceros, in-
censarios, mariposas, campanas, ban-
dejas, cubetas para hielo, campani-
llas, platillos, calderas, samovares,
trkbedes, bateas, copas, y muchos y
bellos articulos mis.
Los comerciantes hinduies de Pa-
nama conocen bien a Florence Burns
y guardian las piezas raras y general-
mente interesantes hasta que ella
pueda verlas.
La mayoria de la gente se estreme-
ce s61o al pensar lo que cuesta man-
tener brillantes tantos objetos de
bronce. No asi Florence Burns que
tiene una manera cientifica de darles
brillo. Los anaqueles se linpian en
forma peri6dica cada 6 semanas.




Santa Claus levanta los brazos, con las manos cargadas de regalos para unos 500 nifios de Pedro Miguel, que asis-

nidad toda de Pedro Miguel. El acto tuvo lugar en la Escuela Primaria de Pedro Miguel y el Profesor John

Tres lanchas de paseo, la Seri, la
Viking y la Nautilus, propiedad de
Frank Violette, John McConaghy y
Zeno Knapp, respectivamente, tuvie-
ron una magnifica pesca durante ex-

te a Bahia de Pifias. Los peces pica-
ban que eran un gusto y el tiempo
fue excelente. Los merlines se daban
gusto con los bonitos que servian de
cebo, 6stos a su vez se alimentaban
de las sardinas que abundaban en
gran cantidad. (Foto en la secci6n
El resultado de la pesca fue 20
merlines de unas 300 libras, muchos
tiburones y por lo menos 2 docenas
de pez espada.
El Sr. McConaghy capture el pez

Frank Violette tenia enganchado un
"pez negro" de unas 600 libras y
despues de luchar con 61 por espacio
de 2 horas, la cuerda se rompi6 antes
de que el tremendo animal aterrizara
en la cubierta.
Casi la mitad de los merlines fue-
ron deiados en libertad debido a la
capacidad insuficiente de los conge-
