Group Life Insurance Premium

Waiver Plan To Be Suspended

The Canal Zone Group Insurance
Board announces that the "Waiver
of Premium Benefit in the Event of
Total Disability" under the U.S. cit-
izen supplementary life insurance
plan will be suspended effective
March 1.
The step is being taken to help
improve the financial condition of the
plan, which has suffered as a result
of the abnormally high death rate
of U.S.-citizen employees over the
past contract years.
The "Waiver of Premium" allowed
those persons retiring on disability
and found to be totally disabled by
the underwriter's medical examiner
to continue their insured status with-
out further premium payment.
Retirees currently on the "waiver"
will continue to be covered.
The suspension does not increase
or decrease premiums for employees
insured under the plan nor does it
affect their coverage as in-service
Employees are reminded that the
U.S. Supplementary Life Insurance
plan includes a conversion clause
whereby an insured is, upon termina-
tion or retirement, entitled to have
issued to him by the underwriter,

without evidence of insurability, an
individual policy of life insurance.
The policy shall, at the option of
the insured, be on any one of the
forms, except term insurance, then
customarily issued by the under-
writer at the age and for the amount
applied for.
The individual policy shall be in
an amount not in excess of the
amount of life insurance carried at
the time of termination or retirement
and the premium shall be at the
underwriter's then customary rates
applicable to the form and amount
of the individual policy, to the class
of risk to which such person then
belongs, and to his age as of the
effective date of the individual

Safety Course Opening
Motorcycle and motor scooter
drivers are reminded of the safety
instruction course at the Training
Center tomorrow and February 11 at

in Panama of U.S. citizen parents,
when the U.S. citizen parent is em-
ployed by the U.S. Government at
the time of the child's birth.
In the case of a child born on
foreign soil, with one U.S. citizen
parent and the other of another cit-
izenship, 10 years of residence in the
United States prior to the child's
birth is a requirement. The statute
dealing with the Canal Zone deter-
mines the citizenship status of a child
according to the law in effect at the
time of birth of the child.
Issuance, or making an application
for a certificate of U.S. citizenship is
a completely voluntary procedure.

The remarkable story of fungi is
interestingly told in Lucy Kavaler's
book Mushrooms, Molds, and Mira-
cles. A curious section of the plant
kingdom, fungi like yeast and anti-
biotics are helpful to man. Others,
like mildew and wheat rust, are
enormously destructive. This book
tells the history of some famous ones
like penicillin and also some that are
infamous, such as poisonous mush-
rooms used for murder. Mrs. Kavaler
includes many strange bits of in-
formation in her unusual and readable
The 9th Directive is the successor
to Adam Hall's "The Quiller Mem-
orandum," which won the Mystery
Writer's award for the best book of
1965. Again, this new novel is a taut
and fast-moving story of espionage
featuring the cynical Quiller, a wolf
set to catch wolves. The setting is
Bangkok. Somewhere in the teeming
city an assassin waits for the visit of
an Important Royal Person. As
Quiller searches, the pace quickens
and the suspense builds, making this

Needlecraft for Home Decoration,
by Nancy Baxter, is a useful reference
book for skilled needleworkers and
also for beginners. It includes designs
of more than 100 contemporary and
original articles that can be made for
the home from large heirloom-type
projects to simple and quickly-finished
pieces. The illustrations are clear and
the how-to-do-it sketches are easy to
follow. The chief advantage of this
book is the good style and modernity
of the designs.
Geoffrey Cotterell has written a
vivid character study into his new
novel, Go, Said the Bird. It is the
portrait of Phil Terriss, an ambitious
young Englishman who wants to
make good and turns himself into a
doormat for his boss and the boss'
family. Impressed with his own im-
portance, Phil lives happily in the
world of British big business until the
surprising climax shatters his illusions
and at the same time gives him cause
for satisfaction. This is an interesting
novel with a fine ironic touch.

Robert Jr., better known as Tico, chats and chews contentedly on his special

the road.

Cat-Chasing, Gum Chewing

Bird Leads Life of Riley

Not many parrots get a morning
ride in the family automobile before
breakfast-or a stick of chewing gum
to keep them happy waiting for the
mistress to finish shopping.
But there aren't many parrots like
Robert Jr. (Tico for short) who lives
in Balboa with the Huckabay family.
A good sized Colombian-Amazon
parrot with touches of yellow and red
about his head, Tico was acquired by
Mrs. Huckabay in Cali, Colombia. He
was the property of an acquaintance-
but not for long after he saw Mrs.
Huckabay. It was love at first sight

Not the "Red Baron"-The beaming
face in this picture belongs to Wil-
liam "Ace" Joyce of Los Rios, as he
was hailed by fellow aviators after a
dramatic breakthrough. A friend
reported: Ace piloted and navigated
his Sopwith Camel all the way from
the United States to Panama. Flying
at speeds of 50 to 55 miles per hour,
at altitudes of 100 to 125 feet, he
maneuvered his classy aeroplane
southward to the Panama destination,
making stops every 40 miles.
Weatherwise, all was not perfect.
North of San lose. while flvine over

and he decided in no uncertain terms
that he wanted to change families.
A deal was made and Tico found
himself on his way to Panama.
Originally Spanish-speaking only,
Tico has picked up a good command
of English and can be considered
bilingual. Unlike most parrots, he is
friendly with everyone, has never
been known to bite, likes fried eggs
and toast for breakfast and, best of
all, is housebroken.
Mrs. Huckabay, not only takes him
for a morning constitutional before
breakfast, but usually puts him in the
car whenever she leaves the house.
He rides on a special perch which
formerly did duty as a balance bar
for the Huckabay children when they
were small.
On these outings, Tico talks happily
to himself as they ride along but
expects a bribe of chewing gum when
the driver leaves the car to run an
errand or shop. He also expects some
little treat when the driver returns.
When he is not riding in the family
car, he may be found on the handle
bars of the Huckabay children'
bicycle or out in the garden chasing
cats. He takes his morning bath in
the garden under the lawn sprinkler
or in the rain if it is that time of the
At night Tico hits the sack in his
own bed, is covered with a sheet, and
wishes the family a fond good night
in Spanish and English. There are
occasions however when he gets
lonely and climbs into another bed.
Even though he thinks he is people
and is considered as one of the family,
Tico's night maneuvers are not too
kindly received. After all who ever
heard of snuggling up to a parrot?

are concerned, as never before, about
the quality of their environment, the
theme "Engineering . for the
Human Environment" has been
chosen to relate engineering to the
many problems immediately sur-
rounding the community.
Authorities throughout the world
are becoming more and more aware
of the degree to which air and water
pollution, human safety, transporta-
tion, and waste disposal practices
threaten the health and environment
of the world's population. Almost
every field of engineering will be
called upon to help solve these
Following is the text of a pro-
clamnation signed by ex-Governor
Fleming prior to his departure from
the Isthmus:

National Engineers' Week-February 19-25, 1967
Engineers' and Architects' Day-February 24, 1967
WHEREAS, engineering societies throughout the United States have for
the past sixteen years joined in the sponsorship of National Engineers' Week
as an outstanding effort to acquaint the public with facts about the
engineering profession and the role it plays in our national welfare; and

WHEREAS, for this worthy purpose, the Canal Zone Society of
Professional Engineers, the Panama Section of the American Society of
Civil Engineers, the Canal Zone Post of the Society of American Military
Engineers, and the Canal Zone Architects are jointly acting to celebrate
one week as National Engineers' Week, and one day as Engineers' and
Architects' Day; and

WHEREAS, the Panama Canal, long recognized as one of the engineering
wonders of the world, is an example of the contributions made to our
standard of living by the engineers' practical applications of scientific
knowledge; and

WHEREAS, there exists a need for our well-qualified young men and
women to be cognizant of the ever-expanding opportunities for service to
mankind's progress through the engineering profession:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr., Governor of the
Canal Zone, do hereby designate the week of February 19-25, 1967, as
National Engineers' Week and designate Friday, February 24, 1967, as
Engineers' and Architects' Day, and invite all residents of the Canal Zone
particularly to join in paying tribute to those men who, with skilled hands
and minds trained in the science of engineering, have become the pioneers
of today and whose creative efforts, past and present, are evident in all

phases of our modern life.

By the Governor:


Executive Secretary.

Medical Service

On SS Cristobal

Wins High Praise

Passengers traveling on the SS
Cristobal can be assured of excellent
medical service should the need arise
during a voyage aboard the ship.
B. M. Parmentier, who became ill
on a recent trip to New Orleans, is
firmly convinced that he owes his
life to the efficiency and cooperation
of the personnel on the Cristobal.
The manner in which the entire
crew-from captain to room steward-
responded to the emergency is
worthy of highest praise, according
to Parmentier, who received treat-
ment comparable to that of a well

National Engineers'

Week Set Feb. 19-25

"Engineering . for the Human
Environment" will be the theme of
the 17th annual National Engineers'
Week which will be observed from
February 19 to 25.
National Engineers' Week is an
annual program sponsored by the
6,500-member National Society of
Professional Engineers. Local ob-
servances are sponsored by the Canal
Zone Society of Professional Engi-
The purpose of National Engi-
neers' Week is to inform the public
about the work of the engineering
profession. It also informs the local
junior and senior high school stu-
dents of the occupational opportuni-

fields of engineering practice.

Tom, more formally Alfred T.

played street fairs and any other
engagement that came along, and at
one time the act was the centerpiece
for the Soap Box Derby sponsored
by General Motors in Akron, Ohio.
And way back when, his dad was one

On March 25

The first Cold Sands Ceremonial
on the Atlantic side of the Isthmus
in about 45 years will be held in the
Cristobal Masonic Temple Saturday,
March 25, according to an announce-

complete initiation.

Momo "Heads" Carnival Fun

Tom Marsh has been clowning
around since he was 9 years old.
It runs in the family, back to his
father who ran away when he was
12 to join the circus.
During Carnival, everyone knows
Tom as Momo, the King of Carnival
fun. Momo is chiefly known on the 4
Atlantic side in Cristobal and in Colon
as the merry gent with a fixed smile .
and dancing feet. The big paper -
mache head of Momo is a permanent .
part of the Atlantic side carnival, and .
this year, Tom Marsh has discarded
his headpiece for a new one that
has rolling eyes, a fan inside to keep
him cool and a bigger smile.

circus too-she was riding and doing
acrobatic acts, as well as making cos-

that makes it possible for these essen-
tial nutrients to be present in the
daily diet. There are hundreds of
pages of food charts available which
furnish information as to the exact
nutrient content of every kind of
food. Also, an official agency in each
nation has published recommended
amounts of each major nutrients
which should be eaten every day by
people of various ages.
The amount of a particular nutrient
circulating in the blood or stored in
the body can be measured by labora-
tory tests. And any physician can
provide information on normal blood
levels of nutrients.
It is comforting to know that
years of research and study have
provided all this information. And
because of this information, we can
be certain that recommendations
from physicians and nutritionists and
their allies in the health professions
are based on fact. But when the

this scientific background.
She buys food!
When we are hungry we eat the
food we enjoy. And we all go through
life enjoying ourselves at the table
with seldom a thought about how
tasty nutrients are. This is just as it
should be. With a handy 1-2-3-4
guide to help us plan meals and select
food, we can leave the worrying
about nutrients to the professionals
in the laboratory.
Such a handy guide is called the
Basic Four Food Groups.
Milk Group
3 or more glasses-Children
4 or more glasses-Teenagers
2 or more glasses-Adults
2 Additional glasses-Pregnant
Any form of milk, cheese, ice cream,
and any milk-made foods can supply
part of the milk.
Meat Group
2 or more servings a day
Meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese,
peanut butter, and dried peas and
beans are included in this group.

Fruits and Vegetable Groups
4 or more servings a (lay to include
1 serving of a food rich in Vitamin C:
citrus fruits, papaya, mango,
1 serving of a food rich in Vitamin
A: any dark green or deep yellow
fruit or vegetables and tomatoes.
2 servings of any other fruit or
Breads, Cereals and Roots
4 or more servings a day
All grains such as corn, wheat,
oats, barley, and rice and including
flours, meals, cereals, macaroni and
noodles, bread and crackers, and any
baked goods made from these grains
are choices in this group. Other major
foods included are the starchy roots
such as potatoes, yams, flame, ot6e,
and yucca.
This grouping of foods, easily
committed to memory, is the quick
reference that insures an adequate
diet for everyone. It is neither
difficult nor complicated. Note that
the servings of food required are the
stune for everyone except in the case
of milk. Only the size of serving will
vary with age-and this is only
common sense.
Note also that no mention is made
of sugars, fats, and desserts. The
Basic Four Food Groups are a foun-
dation, the bare essentials required
for normal growth and maintenance
of good health. One has only to in-
clude the required number of
servings from each group somewhere
in the day's total food intake. He
may follow the family's customs
and his own personal preferences in
choosing particular foods from each
group and in dividing the choices into
meals and snacks. And then he also
has the pleasure of adding anything
else he desires.

Es tradici6n familiar desde su
padre, que huy6 de la casa cuando
tenia 12 afios para unirse al circo.
Durante los Carnavales, todo el
mundo conoce a Tom como Momo,
el Rey de la diversion carnavalesca.
A Momo se le conoce principalmen-
te en Crist6bal y en Col6n como el
caballero alegre, de la eterna sonrisa
y de pies inquietos. La enorme cabeza
de Momo se ha constituido ya en algo

traditional en el Carnaval del sector
Atlantico, y este afio, Tom Marsh ha
reemplazado la vieja cabeza por una
nueva que tiene ojos giratorios, un
abanico interno que lo mantiene fres-
co, y una sonrisa mAs grande.
La madre de Tom tambien estuvo
en el circo. Montaba y realizaba actos

del Medio Ambiente" serA el tema de
la D6cima S6ptima Semana Anual
Nacional del Ingeniero, que serA ob-
servada del 19 al 25 de febrero.
La Semana Nacional del Ingeniero
es un program annual patrocinado
en los Estados Unidos por los 65.000
miembros de la Sociedad Nacional
de Ingenieros Profesionales. Los actos
locales serAn patrocinados por la
Sociedad de Ingenieros Profesiona-
les de la Zona del Canal.
El prop6sito de la Semana Nacio-
nal del Ingeniero es informar al piu-
blico acerca del trabajo de la profe-
si6n. Tambien informar a los alum-
nos de las escuelas secundarias acerca
de las oportunidades ocupacionales
disponibles en los diferentes campos
de la ingenieria prActica.

Debido a que los pueblos del
mundo estan, hoy dia, mAs preocupa-
dos que nunca acerca de la calidad
de su medio ambiente, el tema "La
Ingenieria . al Servicio del Me-
dio Ambiente" ha sido escogido para
relacionar la ingenieria con los mu-
chos problems que rodean a la
Las autoridades en todo-el mundo
se estan dando cuenta cada vez mAs,
del grado en que la contaminaci6n
del aire y del agua, la seguridad hu-
mana, el transport y la disposici6n
de los desperdicios amenazan la salud
y el medio ambiente de la poblaci6n

clama que firm el Gobernador
Fleming, antes de su partida del

Semana Nacional del Ingeniero-Del 19 al 25 de Febrero de 1967
Dia del Ingeniero y del Arquitecto-24 de Febrero de 1967
CONSIDERANDO QUE, las sociedades de ingenieros en todo Estados
Unidos han patrocinado, durante los iltimos 16 afios, la Semana Nacional
del Ingeniero como un gran esfuerzo por familiarizar al pdblico con hechos
acerca de la profesi6n de la ingenicria y el papel que dicha profesi6n
represent en nuestro bienestar national; y
CONSIDERANDO QUE, con este meritorio fin, la Sociedad de la Zona
del Canal de Ingenieros Profesionales, la Secci6n de PanamA de la Sociedad
de Ingenieros Civiles, el Capitulo de la Zona del Canal de la Sociedad de
Ingenieros Militares Americanos y los Arquitectos de la Zona del Canal, se
preparan a celebrar conjuntamente una semana, como la Semana Nacional
del Ingeniero, y un dia, como el Dia del Ingeniero y del Arquitecto; y
CONSIDERANDO QUE, el Canal de PanamA, considerado durante
much tiempo como una maravilla mundial de ingenieria, es un ejemplo
de las contribuciones hechas a nuestro nivel de vida por la aplicaci6n prActica
y los conocimientos cientificos de los ingenieros; y
CONSIDERANDO QUE, es necesario que nuestros j6venes adecuada-
mente calificados se den cuenta de las oportunidades crecientes que hay para
servir al progress de la humanidad por medio de la profesi6n de ingeniero:
POR LO TANTO, YO, ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr., Gobemador de la
Zona del Canal, design por este medio la semana del 19 al 25 de febrero
de 1967, como la Semana Nacional del Ingeniero, y design el viernes 24
de febrero de 1967, como el Dia del Ingeniero y del Arquitecto, e invito
a todos los residents de la Zona del Canal a rendir tribute conjuntamente a
aquellos hombres que, con sus hibiles manos y con su inteligencia adiestrada
en la ciencia de la ingenieria, Ilegaron a ser zapadores de los avances de hoy
y cuyos esfuerzos creativos, pasados y presents, son evidentes en todas las
fases de nuestra vida modern.

Robert Jr., mis conocido como Tico, conversa y mastica chicle tranquila-
mente en una percha especial en el autom6vil, mientras su duefia, la Sra. Alba
Huckabay, mantiene la vista en el camino.

Tico no es Cancidn ni Perico

Es un Senor Loro muy Sabido

No es cualquier loro el que tiene
la oportunidad de dar un paseo mati-
nal en el autom6vil de la familiar antes
del desayuno-o de masticar chicle
para quedarse quieto hasta que el
ama de casa termine las compras.
Un loro con estos caprichos es
Robert Jr. (alias Tico), que vive en
Balboa con la familiar Huckabay.
Un loro colombo-amaz6nico de
buen tamafio con tintes amarillos y
rojos alrededor de su cabeza, Tico
fue adquirido por la Sra. Huckabay
en Cali, Colombia. Pertenecia a unos
amigos de los Huckabay hasta el mo-
mento en que vio a la Sra. Huckabay.
Fue amor a primera vista y Tico
decidi6, en ese moment, cambiar de
familiar. Se hizo el negocio y Tico se
encontr6 a si mismo rumbo a PanamA.
Originalmente de habla hispana,
Tico domina ya bastante el ingl6s y
puede considerArsele bilingiie. A dife-
rencia de la mayoria de los loros, es
amistoso con todo el mundo, nunca
ha aprendido a morder, le gustan los
huevos fritos y tostadas para el
desayuno y, lo mejor de todo, es que
estA hecho a la casa.
La Sra. Huckabay, no solamente lo
pasea en la mafiana antes del desayu-
no, sino que las mAs de las veces lo

coloca en el autom6vil siempre que
sale de casa. Va encaramado en una
varilla especial que habia servido para
los ejercicios de los hijos de Hucka-
bay cuando estaban pequefios.
En estos paseos, Tico habla con-
sigo mismo mientras dura el trayecto,
pero espera siempre su goma de mas-
car para quedar tranquil mientras el
conductor va a hacer sus diligencias.
Tambi6n espera un regalito al regreso
del conductor.
Cuando no pasea en el autom6vil
de la familiar, puede encontrArsele en
los manubrios de la bicicleta de los
hijos de Huckabay o en el jardin,
persiguiendo gatos. Toma su bafio en
la maiiana, en el jardin bajo la rega-
dera del cesped, o bajo la lluvia, en
6poca lluviosa.
En la noche, Tico se acuesta en su
propia cama, lo cubren con una saba-
na y da las buenas noches en espafiol
e ingl6s. Sin embargo hay ocasiones
en que se halla solo y se sube en otra
cama. A6n cuando 61 se consider una
persona y se le tiene como tal en la
familiar, las maniobras nocturnas de
Tico no son muy bien recibidas. Pero
despu6s de todo 8qui6n ha oldo algu-
na vez de un loro que duerma
