Indian Giver-The gifts received by Rabbi Nathan Witkin at the mammoth
farewell party given him last week came from the community, or from orga-
nizations-all except one, that is. Performing in front of the camera for a
change, Photographer Arthur L. Pollack, right, introduced by Judge Guthrie
F. Crowe as "representing Arthur Pollack," presented a framed, colored
photograph of the Rabbi. But Pollack turned out to be an Indian giver. He
asked Rabbi Witkin to present the picture to the Jewish Welfare Board so
that it may be displayed there "as a reminder of the fine work you have
done here."

The first graduates of the Panama Canal's Office Services Intern Program proudly display their certificates of
completion which they received at a recent graduation ceremony. The training program which began a little
over a year ago is designed to produce qualified stenographers and middle level office workers for the Panama
Canal organization. Seated from left to right are graduates Gay Weeks, Schools Division, Priscilla V. Collins,
Schools Division, Gloria Campbell, Corozal Hospital, and Marilyn Bonilla, Supply Division. Standing left to
right are Edward H. Doolan, Personnel Director, John M. McTaggart, chief, Special Placement Unit, graduates
Rogelio Altamiranda, Schools Division, Dolores Ladr6n de Guevara, Administrative Services Division, Sharon
K. Raymond, Supply Division, and Rafael V. Barnett, Navigation Division; J. W. D. Collins, Special Placement
Unit, and Daniel J. Paolucci, Deputy Personnel Director (Staff).

Only Second Bike Trip,

This One Took 6 Months

Take one friendly young man with
a lively mind and a yen to see the
world. Add one bicycle and what
have you got? The ingredients for an
inexpensive 6-month trip through
Mexico, Central America, and Pan-
ama-that's what.
John Tenz, a 25-year-old biochem-
ist, a graduate of the Rochester Insti-
tute of Technology, who taught med-
ical technology at Baylor University
in Texas for the past year to earn
money for his trip, is a visitor in
Panama these days. He arrived here
from Central America on a light-
weight Italian-built bicycle after
spending 6 months on the trip from
Rochester, N.Y.
None the worse for wear, Tenz
said he felt fine and had little trouble
with weather and diet though he
spent part of his time camping out
and enjoyed the food of the country
wherever he went.
Being a scientist, Tenz drew up
most of his plans with care. He
carried a compact set of photographic
equipment in addition to a change of
clothing and a light-weight sleeping
bag. His whole gear, including the
bicycle weighed 66 pounds.
When necessary he stayed at
hotels, carried his money in traveler's

checks and had himself and his bi-
cycle fully insured before leaving the
United States. He forgot only one
thing-a license for his bicycle-the
lack of which nearly landed him in
jail in Guatemala. As a consequence,
his bike carries a Guatemalan tag.
Outside of a short bicycle trip to
Mexico a year ago, this is Tenz's first
trip outside of the United States.
Despite little knowledge of Spanish,
he found people everywhere friendly
and helpful and, from time to time,
he was invited to stay at private
homes. He spent Christmas in a small
Mexican village, celebrated the New
Year in Mexico City, and stayed
31/2 weeks in Acapulco.
In Panama, he made the trip
between David and Santiago over
the newly paved highway, in 1 day-
the best time he made anywhere.
He plans to return to the United
States by ship or plane and will take
a permanent job somewhere next
winter. He hopes it will be one that
will take him abroad.
And what does his family in
Rochester think about his traveling
through Latin America on a bicycle?
Well, his father was sorry that he
couldn't come along.


Journey's End-John Tenz of New York looks over the map of the route
he took on his bicycle from Rochester to Panama.

By Emily J. Price

Bob Considine began his reporting
career with a Sunday column on
tennis in a Washington newspaper.
His memoirs, It's All News to Me,
tell of his promotion to straight news
reporting, human interest pieces, and
the scoops he secured. People, famous
and infamous, throng his story and it's
written in the easy style which has
made him an outstanding journalist.
The Eighth Day is Thornton
Wilder's first novel in many years. It
concerns a man unjustly accused of
murder who flees the country and
takes refuge in the Chilean Andes.
As his children, left behind, achieve
fame and fortune they seek to dis-
cover the truth about the crime.
Richly plotted, this book is a welcome
addition to Wilder's distinguished
literary work.
Charley Ross was a 4-year-old boy
kidnapped from his Philadelphia
home in 1874 and never seen again.
The crime shocked the country and

The Panama and Canal Zone Doc-
tors' Wives Clubs are working
together on a big project. A Cook
Book. Both clubs have the same ob-
jectives: Friendship and Social Wel-
fare. The Cook Book will give them
the opportunity to practice these
Friendship, because regardless of
their use of different languages they
have managed to communicate and
have met on several occasions to plan
for this project. They already have
agreed to have the book written with
practical recipes in English and Span-
ish, many of these on typical dishes
of Panama. The price of the books
will be $3.
Social Welfare, because the money
collected from the sale of the books
will be used for two social welfare
projects: To assist Santo Tomas Hos-
pital; and to assist a capable, but fi-
nancially unable youngster to further
his education in the field of medical
The planning committee needs the
assistance not only of the members of
the clubs, it also needs the assistance
of many other persons. It is necessary
to collect the recipes, translate and
classify them, and also edit the book.
The clubs will contribute $150 each
for financing of the book. Connmmer-
cial ads will also be requested from
private companies.
The committee has already re-
ceived some recipes, but it needs
more. If you have a favorite one and
wish to collaborate on this project,
please send the recipes in English,
Spanish, or both, to one the following
persons: Sra. Noemi de Puerta, Pre-
sidenta, Club de Esposas de M6dicos,

the search for him continued for many
years. Norman Zierold has researched
and documented the facts of this
tragic case. In Little Charley Ross
he recounts the complete history of
America's first kidnapping for ransom.
Leo Rosten has long been known
for his humorous classic "The Edu-
cation of Hyman Kaplan." Now, with
a complete change of pace, he has
produced a rousing tale of espionage,
A Most Private Intrigue. Trips behind
the Iron Curtain, missing scientists,
a nice assortment of malefactors, and
a beautiful Italian biochemist add zest
to the proceedings.
The Groucho Letters is a collec-
tion of letters from and to Groucho
Marx. There are letters to friends,
fellow comedians and a classic ex-
change with Warner Bros. about a
Marx Brothers movie to be called
"A Night in Casablanca." There is
even a model thank-you letter. In
acknowledging a gift from a sponsor,
Groucho wrote, "The watch is a
thing of beauty and will be a joy
forever, and I would have thanked
you sooner, but I purposely waited a
week, for I wanted to be sure the
lousy thing would run."

paign was launched through the
homerooms of the high school.

Cruzan 39.7 Naves al Dia

Y el Canal Impone Record

Abril fue otro mes record para el
trAnsito del Canal de PanamA.
Durante el period de 30 dias, mis
barcos de alto bordo usaron la via
interoceAnica que en cualquier otro
mes de la historic del Canal, inclusive
los 31 dias de marzo de 1967, que
hasta ahora tenian la marca de mis
En abril el promedio diario de bar-
cos de alto bordo que pasaron de
oc6ano a oc6ano fue de 39.7, una
nueva marca. Esto significa mas de
2 barcos mAsque la marca anterior
de 37.5, establecida el mes anterior.
El total del mes fue de 1.094 bar-
cos comerciales de mas de 300 tone-
ladas netas del Canal de PanamrA.

Do6nde Estaciona?
Se solicita a los residents de la
Zona del Canal estacionar sus
autom6viles en sus garajes-no en
los prados adyacentes.
Los funcionarios de Manteni-
miento de Predios sefialaron que
los vehiculos estacionados en los
prados causan dafio al c6sped,
crean charcos que se convierten en
criaderos de mosquitos y son gene-
ralmente repugnantes.

Hubo ademsis 89 barcos de propiedad
del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos
y 8 clasificados como de libre trAnsito,
o un total de 1.191 barcos. Esta cifra
sobrepasa en 28 al total de 1.163
barcos que usaron el Canal durante
los 31 dias de marzo de este afio.
No s6lo fue intense el trAfico sino
que un gran numero de los clients
del Canal durante abril, fueron gran-
des transportadores comerciales que
necesitaron un manejo especial a tra-
v6s de la parte angosta del Corte
Gaillard. Hubo un promedio diario
record de 10.3 barcos de esta catego-
ria conocida como "de libre paso",
comparado con el promedio de 9.7
del mes de marzo, que tenia el record.
De los 1.191 clients, 25 tenian una
manga de 100 pies o mas, y 38 mas
de 700 pies de longitud.
A pesar del intenso transito y del
aumento de superbarcos, las naves
permanecieron en aguas del Canal
s6lo un promedio de 14 horas, en
comparaci6n con las 14.4 horas que
permanecieron en dichas aguas en el
mes de marzo.
En lo que va del afio, hasta el final
de abril, el transito de barcos alcan-
zaba un total de 10.197 barcos comer-
ciales de gran calado, 325 mAs que
la cifra alcanzada al final de abril del
aino pasado.

Esposas de Medicos

Trabajan en un Libro

Los Clubes de Esposas de Medicos
de PanamA y de la Zona del Canal
estin trabajando juntos en la confec-
ci6n de un libro de cocina.
Ambos clubes tienen como lema:
La Amistad y el Bienestar Social. El
Libro de Cocina les da la oportunidad
de practicar este lema. La Amistad,
porque a pesar de la diferencia de
idiomas se han reunido en varias oca-
siones y han planeado que el Libro
de Cocina sea un libro prActico, es-
crito en espafiol y en ingl6s con mu-
chas recetas tipicas de Panarnm pero
tambian con recetas de otros pauses y
que se venderA por $3 el ejemplar.
El Bienestar Social, porque el dinero
que se colecte se va a usar para ayu-
dar en forma mis eficiente al Hospi-
tal Santo TomAs y para ayudar a alg6n
joven capacitado pero de bajos re-
cursos a hacer una carrera en el cam-
po de las ciencias m6dicas.
El comit6 de planeamiento de este
libro necesita la ayuda no s61o de las
socias de los clubes sino de muchas
otras personas. Es necesario recoger

muchas recetas de cocina, traducirlas,
clasificarlas, ordenarlas y editar el
libro. Ambos clubes van a contribuir
para el financiamiento del libro con
$150 cada uno, pero tambiin se soli-
citarin algunos avisos comerciales. Ya
se estAn recibiendo recetas de cocina,

Viaja en Bicicleta Desde

afios de edad, graduado en el Insti-

ensefi6 tecnologia mcdica en la Uni-
versidad de Baylor en Texas el afio
pasado para obtener dinero para su

Siendo un cientifico, Tenz traz6

El Valor de la Repeticion
Muchos creen que a veces se habla demasiado sobre prevenci6n de' acci-
dentes, pero la experiencia nos prueba que cuando dejamos de hablar sobre
esto, dejamos de pensar en ello, y cuando dejamos de pensar en ello
pricticamente deja de existir.
Prevenci6n de accidents es repetir las cosas tantas veces como sea nece-
sario a fin de evitar que otro ser human se lesione. Pero como la repetici6n
es a menudo asociada con monotonia muchos encuentran que la pildora de
la prevenci6n de accidents es dificil de tragar.
La repetici6n es necesaria. En muchas circunstancias la repetici6n es abso-
lutamente necesaria y como 'consecuencia de 6sto nunca debemos pensar que
aquella es mon6tona ni debemos tratar de evitarla.
El coraz6n repite sus movimientos constantemente durante la vida de un
ser human; tambien se repite el respirar y el comer; lo mismo sucede con
la salida y puesta del sol y con las estaciones del afio. En otras palabras, hay
muchas cosas que suceden una y otra vez y debe ser de esta manera si la
vida ha de continuar. Este debe ser tambien nuestro modo de pensar en lo
referente a prevenci6n de accidents. El prevenir accidents y lesions debe
significar repetici6n y, como el respirar, debemos continuar con ella si
queremos sobrevivir.
Tomemos el caso de la madre que ayuda al pequefio a aprender a caminar.
Cada paso inseguro y vacilante debe ser ensayado una y otra vez. Si el
nifio nunca es estimulado a dar el primer paso y a continuar repitiendo el
esfuerzo, nunca aprenderA a caminar. Lo mismo sucede en la prevenci6n de
accidents. Ciertas cosas deben ser hechas una y otra vez a fin de alentar
continuamente a la gente a hacer las cosas en forma segura.
La repetici6n es premiada. A menudo cuando se usa la palabra premierr"
se piensa en recibir una satisfacci6n por algo que se ha hecho. En consecuen-
cia en Prevenci6n de Accidentes la repetici6n de las reuniones de seguridad,
el uso de equipos protectores y la eterna insistencia de poner en prActica
los m6todos de seguridad cuando se traba*a, pueden y serAn premiados. Se
obtiene asimismo una recompensa al mejorar las estadisticas de seguridad.
Cuando miremos a la repetici6n en la prevenci6n de accidents como algo
necesario, alentador y digno de premiarse no vacilaremos en incluirla en
nuestro program de trabajo diario e inmediatamente podremos pesar las
ventajas recibidas.
