Big David

Fair Opens

March 12
Panama's biggest fair, in David, is
approaching an 8-day run that will
offer a wider variety of exhibits and
more spectacular fairgrounds than
any previous fair in that city.
Cattlemen, fair committee members
and hundreds of participants in Chiri-
qui Province have been planning for
weeks for the opening on March 12.
The fair runs through March 19.
United States participation will in-
clude exhibits by the Panama Canal,
U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force, as
well as the United States Information
The fair this year is billed as a
Central American Fair, with several
Central American countries invited to
furnish exhibits.

Changes in School

Hours Are Proposed

Proposed changes in hours for
schools in U.S. communities were
presented at the February Civic Coun-
cil Executive Session, the first pre-
sided over by Gov. Walter P. Leber.
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt emphasized
that the Schools Division proposal
had not yet been acted upon and that
the administration first wanted reac-
tions and opinions of the Civic Coun-
cils after they had time to discuss the
matter themselves.
The schedule changes, which would
take effect with the opening of the
school year in August 1967, would
allow pupils in the elementary and
junior and senior high schools to finish
classes earlier at the end of each day.
Those in kindergarten would leave
for home later.

ment-masks, bats, balls, and gloves-was furnished by Frank Anderson, chief plumbing inspector, Panama
Canal Construction Division.

Bocas del Toro Flight Sunday

First in Series of Excursions

Another of Panama's beautiful but
little-known beaches will be visited

Draft Allowance

Reduction Slated

For March 10
The second limitation to be imposed
this dry season on the maximum draft
allowable for ships using the Panama
Canal will become effective March 10
according to a notice to shipping
issued by the Chief of the Navigation
On that date, ships in the Canal
will be limited to a maximum tropical
fresh water draft of 39 feet.
The first draft restriction issued this
dry season became effective February
15, when draft allowance was re-
duced from the all-time high of 40
feet for certain types of vessels to 39
feet 6 inches.
Restrictions are imposed as the
level of Gatun lake drops during the
dry weather. This year the lake level
is nearly a foot higher than it was at
the same time last year. If a normal
dry season follows, it is hoped that
38 feet tropical fresh water will be
the minimum draft allowance this

this Sunday by a group of Panama
and Canal Zone "tourists" who will
fly to Bocas del Toro Island for a
clay of sun and fun.
A "get acquainted tour" or the
first in a series of Sunday excursions
organized by Gloria Garcia and Jose
Thomas of Panama, will leave To-
cumen International Airport Sunday
at 7 a.m.
Arriving at Bocas del Toro 11/2
hours later, the members of the group
will be taken to a beach to swim,
skin dive or water skiing. Motorboats
may be rented for fishing or skiing
at $2.50 an hour including fuel and
an operator. Rooms for dressing will
be provided and lunch will be served
at the Cabafia Club.
The visitors will be required to
bring only their bathing suits, cam-
eras, towels, fishing, skindiving, and
skiing gear.
The return flight will leave Bocas
del Toro at 4:30 p.m. and will arrive
at Tocumen by 6 p.m.
A jet set program at bargain prices,
the tour will cost only $20 a person,
including lunch.
Reservations for the Sunday tour to
Bocas del Toro can be made by call-
ing Mrs. Garcia at Panama 3-3002
or Thomas at Panama 3-2130.

West Pointers'

Alumni of the U.S. Military Acad-
emy will come to the Isthmus of
Panama from all parts of Latin Amer-
ica to commemorate the 165th anni-
versary of the founding of that
The local celebration of the West
Point Founders Day will be held at
the Pacific Area Officers' Open Mess,
Fort Amador, starting at 7 p.m., Wed-
nesday, March 15. Graduates of all
U.S.-service academies in the area
have been invited to join members
of the Long Grey Line in the festivi-

Under the present schedule junior
and senior high school hours are 7:45
a.m. to 2:45 p.m. with lunch from
11:35 to 12:33. This would change to
7:45 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. with lunch
from 10:40 to 11:35.
The elementary school schedule
would be changed from the present
8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and lunch
from 12:00 to 1:30 to a new schedule
of 8:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and lunch
from 11:00 to 12:00.
Kindergarten would be 9:30 a.m.
to 12:00 and 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
instead of the present schedule of
8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 12:30
p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
It is believed that with a shorter
lunch hour, students would not be
as tired during afternoon classes. The
schedule change would permit setting
up a seventh period for students who
carry a full academic load and would
like to take additional course.
It also would provide greater teach-
er in-service training and curriculum
development work with less loss of
instructional time and give additional
time in the afternoon for expansion
of co-curriculum and extra-curricular
Some of the other advantages seen:
teachers would be permitted to con-
duct extra-help sessions for pupils and
more parental and student confer-
ences; more efficient use of Panama
Canal buses and fewer buses needed
by the Armed Forces; students who
eat at the service centers would be,
finished before the noon hour rush;
the elementary school lunch period
would reduce the number of buses
traveling during employees lunch
As for disavantages: there will be
3 to 4 minutes deducted from the
supervised study time in each of the
first six periods of the secondary
schools; kindergarten will begin 1
hour later in the morning and one-
half hour later in the afternoon.
The Lieutenant Governor also an-
nounced that the next civic council
executive session will be at 7:30 p.m.
March 21, probably at Fort Clayton,
with the members of Girls' State.
This, as in other years, will give the
Girls' State representatives an oppor-
tunity to see how the Civic Councils
function and allow the girls an op-
portunity to present questions them-
Mrs. Majel Reinheimer, 1st vice
president of the Margarita-Cristobal-
Brazos Heights Civic Council, asked

3 More Summit

Tours Scheduled
Three more Saturday tours of
Summit Gardens are scheduled for
this dry season-March 4, March 18,
and April 1.
Conducted by Roy Sharp, Super-
visor of Grounds, Pacific area, the
tours begin at the Garden's entrance
promptly at 9 a.m. Sharp, well-known
plant expert, will point out and tell
the visitors about many of the exotic
fruit, flowering, and economic plants
growing in Summit Gardens, one of
the most remarkable tropical gardens
of the world.
More than 15,000 different kinds
of plants are found in this 300-acre
garden, including 200 varieties of
palms, 100 varieties of mangoes,
about 5 acres of citrus trees, and
many other plants native to the Isth-

who inhabits a ramshackle house far
from all civilized amenities. The
search for some stolen paintings
carries them from London to the
country to Paris and involves them
with a group of offbeat but con-

and the problems are settled in
a manner most satisfactory.
Snorklers and skindivers will have
a good time with Edmund Burke's
The Underwater World. This highly
readable manual describes the thrills
and dangers of a fascinating sport,
permitting those who have never
taken the plunge to judge for them-
selves whether or not they would
enjoy it. There are good chapters on
equipment, training and techniques,
underwater photography and under-
water hunting. This sensible and up-
to-date book will be of value to
expert and novice.
Frederic Taubes is a well-known
artist and author of many books on

latest book is called The Illustrated
Guide to Great Art in Europe, for
Amateur Artists. In it he covers all the
art centers of Western Europe, de-
scribing the important collections and
pointing out the significant works of
art. His approach is personal, his own
likes and dislikes are frankly stated.
This delightful book is like a leisurely
walk around the world's masterpieces
with a knowledgeable guide of de-
cided opinions and informed taste.

you wander in for Sunday breakfast
and ask her to whip up a dozen pan-
cakes? Do you wonder why you hear
pots and pans slamming around the
kitchen? Don't you think it might be
possible that everyone asks for a dif-
ferent breakfast and, after all, Mom is
not a short-order cook!

A new Isthmus dramatic group will
make its premiere appearance Satur-
day, March 11, at 2 p.m., in the

ly damaged the shells or marred their
delicate beauty. The delicate glaze of
many shells is damaged by heat.
Microscopic oil is boiled out and the
luster disappears, leaving the shell
lifeless and dull.
After about 10 years of research,
using methods of trial and error,
Bergeron discovered a satisfactory
method and has outlined this process
in a handbook entitled, "How To
Clean Sea Shells."
The handbook describes the most
desirable method to use with each
specific category of shells such as size,
sculpture and ruggedness. A method
for removing the calcareous material
from encrusted shells also is shown
in the handbook.

March 3, 1967

B. I. Everson, Chief of the Division of Civil Affairs, speaks at a luncheon at the Tivoli Guest House in honor
of Mr. and Mrs. Loren B. Burnham, who left the Isthmus Thursday for Florida. Burnham has resigned his posi-
tion as Chief of the Employee Utilization and Development Staff of the Personnel Bureau. Mrs. Burnham,
former Librarian-Curator of the Canal Zone Library-Museum, retired in December. From left, at the head
table are Dr. D. J. Paolucci, Deputy Personnel Director (staff); Paul M. Runnestrand, Executive Secretary; Burn-
ham; Edward A. Doolan, Personnel Director; Mrs. Burnham; Everson; Gordon M. Frick, Deputy Personnel Director
(operations); and James A. Yates, Chief of the Employment and Placement Branch. During the luncheon, Bum-
ham was presented a key to the Panama Canal Locks in the grade of "apprentice seaman (power and sail.)"

School Hours Changes Proposed

(Continued from p. 1)
be provided at the Margarita gym-
On the same matter, Mrs. Doris
Sanders, president of the Cristobal-
Margarita-Brazos Heights council,
requested that the gym be reopened
as before on a full-time basis so that
all school groups, elementary, junior
and senior high schools, can use it.
Richard Cunningham, treasurer of
the Coco Solo Civic Council, asked if
the controversial type adult films pre-
sented during the United Fund film
festival last year would be again
shown this year. The Lieutenant Gov-
ernor pointed out that this was not
an administration-sponsored project
but one given by an independent
group. He said, however, that he un-
derstands that this year's selection
would be more of a mixture than
last year.
Governor Leber said he was sure
the governing bodies of the groups
sponsoring the film presentation
would be receptive to the opinions of
the Civic Councils and the people
they represent.
Mrs. Sanders asked if it would be
possible to set up a blood bank at
the Oschner Clinic in New Orleans for
the benefit of Canal Zone residents
who use this hospital. Colonel Parfitt
said this would be taken up with the
Health Bureau.
Robert E. Lee, president of the
Gamboa Civic Council, asked that a
physician be assigned to the Gamboa
dispensary on weekends. Frequently
people go there for treatment but
because no doctor is available must
go to Gorgas Hospital, he stated. Also,
at the dispensary, Lee suggested that
a numbered card system be installed
to prevent any possible favoritism
allowing patients to be waited on
ahead of their turn.
Lee also reported a need for better
lighting of streets throughout the
townsite of Gamboa, and an intermit-
tently faulty emergency telephone
across from the water tank near
Summit Gardens.
Capt. Howard Buehler, president
of the Pacific Civic Council, asked for
an executive order which he believes
might prevent further accidents such
as the recent one in which a child
was struck by an auto after alighting
from a schoolbus. Captain Buehler
suggested that the executive order
compel schoolbuses to stop in the cen-
ter of the street when discharging
passengers instead of on the side of
the road. This system, which he said
is used in some U.S. municipalities,
allows the bus itself to serve as
an effective block against cars passing
on either side.
Captain Buehler also asked if a

target date had been set for comple-
tion of the Los Rios swimming pool.
There have been complaints that some
canned fruit juice sold in the commis-
sary bears a Louisiana State tax
stamp, according to Captain Buehler.
He also raised the question of round-
the-clock telephone repair service 7
days a week. Any needed rate in-
crease could come later, if necessary,
he said.
Kenneth Willis, Sr., 1st vice presi-
dent of the Coco Solo Civic Council,
said his area now has poor service
though it pays the same rate as other
regions. Coco Solo would be against
any rate increase, he said.
Mrs. Reinheimer asked that some-
thing be done to avoid some of the
confusion that occurs at the train inter-
section near Mt. Hope and the Indus-
trial Division during the change of
shifts. Mrs. Reinheimer also requested
that a sidewalk be laid from the en-
trance of Margarita to the train sta-
tion. This area becomes muddy when
it rains, she explained.
Before the meeting closed, Gover-
nor Leber expressed his appreciation
of the value of the Civic Councils:
"I believe it is one of the most
important organs and mechanisms for
keeping in touch with the people.
People are the most important thing
we have. Without them, the locks
could not operate." The Governor
added that he will do everything he
can to cooperate with the needs of
the employees. "Any way we can
reasonably comply with requests will
be my policy," he said.
The Governor thanked the Civic
Council members for their participa-
tion and strongly urged them to bring
up questions and requests of their
own and of their constituents.

2 Highest Honor

Awards Approved

By Scout Council

The Local Council of the Interna-
tional Boys Scouts of the Canal Zone,
at its recent 20th annual meeting,
adopted resolutions awarding the
Council's Thanks Badge, its highest
award, to Canal Zone Superintendent
of Schools F. A. Castles and the
Council's president, Sylvester D.
They were recognized for their
outstanding contributions toward the
organization's advancement over the
years. Letters of appreciation were
voted for two Canal Zone officials,
Victor Herr, supervisor of music,
and John W. Hare, special services
officer. They were honored for their
interest and significant contributions
to the welfare and progress of the
youth movement.
It was announced also that two
grants; $2,260 from the International

Canal Zone United Fund, Inc., were
received for the establishment of a
training center.

Panama License

Plate Deadline
The City of Panama has extended
to March 15 the deadline for obtain-

issued to U.S. citizens who reside in
Panama and are personnel of U.S.
Government agencies in the Canal
These plates, previously identified
as "Z" plates, this year will be issued
by the Municipality of Panama from
an allocated series of numbers of the
regular "P" plates.
Action of the Municipal Council
of the City of Panama increasing the
charge for the plates from $5 to $26
has been protested by the U.S. Gov-
ernment as being in violation of the
1950 agreement with the Government
of Panama which provided for recip-
rocal recognition of vehicle registra-
tion plates, and stated that there
would be no change in the rates then
prevailing in respect to the charges
required to be paid for the Panama-
nian vehicle licenses and license
