3-Time Winner

In Cayuco Race

Being Retired?
If you were to ask any explorer in
the Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts
of America, what cayuco he would
like to have in the annual Ocean-to-
Ocean Cayuco Race chances are he
would say the Bejuco.
The famed Befuco is owned by
Explorer Post 21 sponsored by Balboa
Union Church. During the past three
cayuco races this sleek craft has left
all others far behind as it went on to
win first place. Last year Dick Wil-
liams, the Post committee chairman,
announced that the Bejuco had
attained its purpose and would not
be entered in competition status
in the 1967 race April 7, 8, and 9.
Explorers throughout the council
are now demanding that the Bejuco
be entered in the 1967 cayuco race
in competitive status. As one explorer
said, "We plan on winning the race
and the best part of winning will be
beating the Bejuco.
There is some question as to the
ability of the boat or the crew that
makes a winning combination in the
race. There is also talk going around
that Post 21 has a new cayuco faster
than the Bejuco. This could be true,
since Williams is lending another ex-
plorer unit a cayuco that placed third
several years ago.
One thing is certain, if the Bejuco
is in this year's cayuco race, you can
count on some keen competition and,
knowing Williams, there just might
be a sign painted on the stern of the
Bejuco saying, "Catch Me, If You

Joseph A. Brunton, Jr., Chief Scout
Executive of the Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica, will pay an official visit to the

of the Scouting movement that has an
active membership of 5,732,708
scouts and scouters.
A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., he has
been active in Scouting since boy-
hood. He attained Eagle Scout rank
and served in numerous volunteer ca-
pacities prior to entering Scouting's
professional service. In his profes-
sional career he served as a district
Scout executive, assistant Scout exec-
utive, and Scout executive. In 1944
he was selected as Scout executive of
the Greater New York Councils. In
1952 he became national director of
the Relationships Division and in
1957 was appointed assistant Chief
Scout Executive. He assumed his
present position August 1, 1960.
Brunton's interest in world youth
movements has taken him to many
parts of the world, to attend both
world Boy Scout conferences and
World Jamborees. He currently is
serving as a member of the board of
directors on a number of national
organizations including the President's
Committee on Employment of the
Handicapped; the National Confer-
ence on Citizenship, and the National

clation at Valley Forge, Pa., presented
him the American Patriots Award for
"his inspired leadership in developing
a Scout-trained citizenry of men who
are physically, mentally, and spirit-
ually armed to guard America's fu-
ture." Brunton is the second American

was established in 1954. The first was
presented to former President Dwight
D. Eisenhower in 1961.
Brunton will be escorted in the
Canal Zone by Brig. Gen. William
K. Skaer, 1966 Council president;
Lt. Cov. H. R. Parfitt, 1967 Council

Governor Leber Thanks Retirees

For Long and Faithful Service

"I appreciate this opportunity to
spend a few minutes with the people
who have served so long and faith-
fully in the Canal organization. I
wish you all the best of health and
luck in your retirement," said Canal
Zone Gov. Walter P. Leber in ad-
dressing the Panama Canal employees
who retired last month.
This was the first retirement cere-
mony he conducted as Governor of the
Canal Zone, but, as he pointed out,
he had often addressed retiring Pan-
amna Canal employees at retirement
ceremonies during his former tour of
duty on the Isthmus as Lieutenant
"As you look back, and think back
over the years you have worked with
the Panama Canal, you can appreciate
what a real success the operation has
been," he said. "Each of you can be
justly proud of what you have done
to contribute to this success."
Nathan Fleckner of the Employee
Services Branch called each name and
gave the respective employees' years
of U.S. Government service. Gover-
nor Leber presented the retirement
certificate to each one with a few
personal words. Bureau Chiefs also
added their good wishes and congrat-
ulations to the retiring employees.

Scouts Open


This Evening

The annual boy scout camporee
sponsored by the Canal Zone Coun-
cil, Boy Scouts of America, is being
held today, tomorrow, and Sunday at
the Howard-Kobbe military base.
Those attending will be awarded the
1967 camporee emblem designed for
the event.
Col. Melvin E. Jarvis, Council
Activities Chairman, has announced
the camporee will have 10 skill events
for scouts to test by patrols. The
events are: mile pace, map symbols,
taut line hitch relay, rope throw and
log pull up, chariot race, signaling,
compass and measuring, tent pitching,
fire building and rope burning, and
identification. There will also be two
council championship events covering
knot tying and fire by flint and steel.
The scouts will hike into the
camporee area this afternoon or early
evening from a point 1 mile away
and must carry all gear to be used
during the weekend. During the
camporee scouts will be inspected on
a patrol basis for such items as uni-
form, food, tents, campsite, cooking,
proper equipment and care of such
equipment, dishwashing, conduct,
teamwork, beds, fires, and a number
of other items.
Each patrol will be scored and the
troop rating will be based on the
total points earned by the patrols. The
troop earning the highest average will
be awarded the coveted Camporee
Trophy to hold until the next council
camporee. Ribbons also will be
awarded in relation to the scores
earned by patrols and troops.
A camporee-wide campfire program
will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday. The

By Emily J. Price
Cuna is the story of a young Amer-
ican girl who spent a year in Panama's
San Bias Islands, living with the In-
dians. Joanne Kelly had no wish to
change or interfere with the Indian
customs, she merely wanted to learn
and to write a book about them. The
Indians soon understood this and
accepted her.
Her book is the most detailed
account of San Bias life yet written.
Equipped with a good working know-
ledge of anthropology and unhindered
by preconceived ideas, Miss Kelly has
produced an interesting book that fills
a need for accurate information.
The South American countries from
Colombia to Argentina are described
in John Gunther's Inside South Amer-
ica. The complex political situations
and the leaders of national life are
sharply profiled in chapters on each
country. Summaries present the over-
all problems: population pressure,
land reform, U.S. policy, industriali-
zation, and others. The author's sharp
eye for personality and atmosphere
produces a clear account of a vast
and perplexing continent.
Men at Work is a new novel by
Honor Tracy, an English writer with
a gift for subtle satire. This time her
wit is directed at London's literary
world. The hero is an immensely self-
satisfied, popular novelist whose
dream of peace is shattered by his
impulsive wife and a variety of dread-
ful visitors. His frantic struggles with
conscience and creditors finally re-
ceive their just rewards, much to the
reader's pleasure.
The Verdicts Were Just is a book
in which 8 famous lawyers present
their most memorable cases. Justice

Former Assistant

To Comptroller

Plans World Tour
Paul Robbins, who retired recently
as assistant to the Comptroller of the
Panama Canal and will be leaving
the Isthmus March 16, says his im-
mediate plans are for a trip around
the world, by slow stages.
Suiting action to his word, he'll
first travel to New Orleans on the
SS Cristobal. Next he'll visit his fam-
ily at Miami Beach, Fla., and continue
on to New York. A visit to Canada's
Expo-67 is on his agenda and from
Canada he'll take off by boat or plane
to Europe. There he'll travel at lei-
sure, but will look in on George
Graffman, formerly of the Panama
Canal's Transportation Office, who
now resides in England.
Robbins was with the Panama
Canal organization from May 1962
until retirement. Prior to coming to
the Isthmus, he worked as General
Agent for the New Orleans Opera-
tion of the Panama Canal organiza-
tion and, in the original move from
New York to New Orleans, worked
with establishing the Water Transpor-
tation Division in New Orleans.
A native New Yorker, he is a grad-
uate of New York University with a
degree in law and was adjudicator in
the New York operation of the Pan-
ama Canal organization, handling
maritime claims and working with
legal counsel in New York.
While on the Isthmus, he was re-
lieving Magistrate in the Balboa and
Cristobal Magistrates' Courts.

Nursing Assistant

38-Year Veteran

Rufus N. Brown, nursing assistant
(operating room) at Coco Solo Hos-
pital, has been with the Canal Zone
hospital so long he's referred to as
"Doe" by his old-time friends and
He's worked with the Canal organi-
zation 38 years, and now is planning
to retire and go to the United States
to reside.
Brown was born in Grenada,
B.W.I., received his schooling there,
and then taught in the high school.
However, he'd always heard about
the Panama Canal. An uncle had
worked on the Isthmus during Canal
construction days and, at the age of
21, Rufus decided to seek employ-
ment here.
His first job was that of checker
in the Terminals Division, but after
6 months he moved to a position in
the operating room in the Atlantic
side hospital, then Colon Hospital,
located on the beach. He moved with
the hospital to Coco Solo.
When he went to work, there were
three men assistants in the operating
room and he was the third man. After
about 6 months he became nursing
assistant, the position he's held for
some 37 years. "I liked this job so
much," he explains, "I never applied
for a teaching job."
Brown kept his British citizenship,
but his three children are U.S. citi-
zens. Beatrice, Norma, and Rufus, Jr.,
all live in Brooklyn, N.Y., and that is
where Brown and his wife plan to
go when he retires.
Mr. and Mrs. Brown live in Rain-
bow City. They are affiliated with
Jehovah's Witnesses and he is a
preacher and overseer of the congre-
gation in Colon.

exhibits, showing the industrial agri-
cultural, and commercial progress of

Rufus N. Brown, auxiliar de en-
fermeria adscrito al sal6n de opera-
ciones del Hospital de Coco Solo, ha
pertenecido a ese hospital de la Zona
del Canal durante tanto tiempo, que
sus viejos conocidos y amigos lo
l1aman "Doc".
Ha trabajado con la empresa del
Canal durante 38 afios, y ahora pien-
sa jubilarse e ir a fijar su residencia
en los Estados Unidos.
Brown naci6 en Grenada, Indias
Occidentales Britinicas, hizo sus es-
tudios alli y ademas, enseno6 en es-
cuelas secundarias. Sin embargo, ha-
bia oido hablar much del Canal de
PanamA. Uno de sus tios habia tra-
bajado en el Istmo durante los dias
de la construcci6n y, a la edad de 21
afios, Rufus decidi6 buscar empleo
Su primer traba;o fue el de verifi-
cador en la Divisi6n de Tenninales,
pero luego de 6 meses fue trasladado
a una posici6n en el sal6n de opera-

ciones del hospital del sector AtlAn-
tico, Hospital Col6n en aquel enton-
ces, situado frente a la playa en la
ciudad de Col6n. Luego, junto con
el Hospital, se traslad6 a Coco Solo.
Cuando empez6 a trabajar en el
hospital, habia tres auxiliares varones
en el sal6n de operaciones y 61 era el
tercer hombre. Despues de unos 6
meses, fue nombrado auxiliar de en-
fermeria, posici6n que ha desempe-
fiado durante unos 37 afios. "Mi tra-
bajo me gustaba tanto", explica, "que
JamAs hice solicited para una posici6n
como maestro".
Brown conserve su ciudadania bri-
tanica, pero sus tres hijos son ciuda-
danos de Estados Unidos. Beatrice,
Norma y Rufus, Jr., viven todos en
Brooklyn, Nueva York, y alli es donde
piensa ir a residir. El Sr. y la Sra. de
Brown viven en Rainbow City. Per-
tenecen a Los Testigos de Jehova,
organizacion religiosa en la que el Sr.
Brown es predicador y supervisor para
el Area de Col6n.

El ex campe6n mundial del peso ligero Ismael
Laguna, harA esta noche su primera presenta-
ci6n en tinglados de Nueva York, cuando se
mida con el destacado puigil puertorriquefio
Frankie Narvaez, en una pelea pactada a 12
Laguna y NarvAez chocarAn en el tinglado del
famoso Madison Square Garden en una pelea
aprobada por la Asociaci6n Mundial de Boxeo
como eliminatoria para escoger al pr6ximo rival
del campe6n mundial Carlos Ortiz, tambi6n de
Puerto Rico, por el titulo de las 135 libras.
Laguna ha peleado dos veces antes en los
Estados Unidos, con Kid Anahuac, de M6xico,
y con el estadounidense Al Grant, en los Angeles.
Existe un entusiasmo enorme por este encuen-
tro de Laguna, tanto asi, que alrededor de 250
fanAticos han viajado a la ciudad de los rasca-
cielos para presenciar el pleito. Ademas, la nu-
merosa colonia panamefia resident en Nueva
York estA lista para respaldar al idolo panamefio.
Cuando Laguna lleg6 a Nueva York el 27 de
febrero, mAs de 1.000 panamefios fueron a reci-
birlo al Aeropuerto Internacional Kennedy,

desplegando centenares de banderitas paname-
Indudablemente que el Madison Square
Garden estara esta noche lleno de panamefios y
puertorriquefios, que van a alentar a sus res-
pectivos paisanos.
Los fan6ticos que se quedan en PanamA es-
cucharin la pelea en una transmisi6n direct
que se harA desde el Garden a traves de la
emisora Circuito R.P.C. alrededor de las 10 de
la noche, hora de PanamA.
Laguna ha celebrado un total de 49 peleas
profesionales, de las cuales ha ganado 44, 29 de
ellas por la via rapida, ha empatado 1 pelea y
perdido 4.
Por su part Narvaez tiene 34 peleas profe-
sionales, ganado 29 de ellas, 6 por nocaut, ha
empatado 1 y perdido tambi6n 4. Laguna tiene
23 afios de edad y NarvAez 27.
Se consider que Laguna debe ganar esta pe-
lea por su mejor boxeo, mayor velocidad, esta-
tura y alcance. AdemAs, NarvAez es de estatura
pequefia y no posee fuerte pegada, como puede
notarse en sus victorias por la via rApida, que son
solamente seis.
