THE PANAMA CANAL Gift ofthe Panama Canal museum


Vol. VI, No. 28 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, December 29. 1967



Plan Changed
Employees subject to U.S. with-
holding taxes formerly were allowed
to increase their withholding tax de-
ductions by adding additional incre-
ment of $10 to be deducted. Effec-
tive with the 1968 tax year, em-
ployees may have additional income
tax deductions made in increments of
$2, from $2 to $198 per pay period.
The policy of accepting only one
change to the amount of additional
tax deductions per calendar year is
still valid. A change to the additional
amount withheld may be made by
filing a new W4 form with the Payroll
The amounts previously withheld
each pay period for the U.S. income
taxes were calculated using a tax
table. Effective with the 1968 tax
year, the amounts withheld will be
calculated using a percentage method.
This change may result in a minor
difference in the amount withheld.
Installment contracts now are de-
ducted in the second pay period of
the month. The installment contract
collections which were normally to be
deducted in the second pay period in
December 1967-from December 3
to December 16-were not made. This
collection will be resumed two pay
periods later in pay period No. 27,
from December 31 to January 13.
Thereafter, installment contracts will
normally be deducted in the first pay
period each month.
Electric current charges are usually
deducted in the first pay period of the
month. Electric current deductions
now have a time lag of approximately
45 days between the meter reading
date and the date the charge appears
on the employee's deduction advice.
Since December 1967 has a third pay
period, the electric current charges
usually collected in the first pay period
in January will be collected in pay
period No. 26, from December 17 to
December 30.
Thereafter, electric current gen-
erally will be deducted in the second
pay period each month.

May 8 Earliest

Withdrawal Date

For Students
Now that Christmas is over, and
New Year's Day is practically here, it
won't be long before Easter and
school vacation days.
The first school boat will leave
Thursday, May 9, when the SS Cris-
tobal departs Cristobal with prefer-
ence given teachers and employees
with children of school age traveling
with them.
A student who leaves the Canal
Zone schools on or after May 8, 1968,
for travel with his parents, and who
has been doing satisfactory work shall
be promoted, said F. A. Castles,
Superintendent of the Canal Zone
Division of Schools.
He emphasized, however, the un-
desirable effects of early withdrawal
for a high school student, pointing out
that the last marking period is the
most important period in the school
year from the standpoint of the course
review, and that the end-of-course
examination is an integral and essen-
tial part of the course.
The actual last day of school for
the Canal Zone U.S. schools 1967-68
school year is Friday, May 24.

From left, Duncan Bruce Laird, Wes Townsend, Duncan Laird, Jr., and
Frank (Abbie) Anderson reach the Atlantic coast after a 4-day trip over
mountains and rivers in mud and rain. The adventurous 4, plus Ted Henter,
who took the picture, made a trial run of a hike from El Valle to Colon
which had been planned for Explorer Scouts during the Christmas holidays.

"Dry Run" of El Valle-Colon Hike

Was Wet, Muddy, Chilly Expedition

A "dry run" of an Explorer Scout
walking trip from El Valle to Colon
planned for the Christmas holidays
turned out to be anything but that. It
was a muddy, wet, cold endurance
test for the five men who volunteered
to make the trial trip.
And then the explorer trip was
Duncan Laird, Jr., a civilian em-
ployee of the Air Force at Howard
AFB; his 16 year old son, Duncan;
Ted Henter, Chief Hydrologist with
the Sea Level Canal Studies; Frank
Anderson, Chief Plumbing Inspector
of the Construction Division, and Wes
Townsend, retired Chief of the
Surveys Branch, Engineering Divi-
sion, volunteered for the trip.
It was a 4-day expedition that
involved climbing a mountain which
constitutes the Continental Divide,
crossing the jungle to the navigable
part of Rio Indio, a cayuco ride down
the river to the Atlantic coast, and a
hike down the coast to Colon.
Though tropical rainy season condi-
tions are not ideal for an exploratory
trip of this kind, the five hikers and
their packs were transported to El
Valle, where they officially started
their journey.
As they walked up La Mesa road
they got their first taste of mud as

they made their way around a slide
which had blocked the road. After
walking about 15 minutes, they came
to a formidable mountain, the first of
many they were to climb before the
end of the journey. This mountain,
estimated at about 3,000 feet, forms
a part of the Continental Divide. The
trail went almost straight up. It was
rough and slippery and the rain, mud
and heavy packs added to the difficult
Going down the slippery mountain
was equally difficult and some of the
hikers made it on the seat of their
pants. They continued traveling up
and down ridges and crossing streams
until they reached a swift-flowing
mountain stream, a branch of the Rio
Las Minas. After wading across the
cold river which was thigh to waist
deep, they climbed a few more good
sized hills in mud and rain before
resting atop a hill overlooking Las
Minas-and called it a day.
With rain still coming down and
fog so thick you could "cut it with a
machete," they set up hammocks
under an unoccupied bohio, changed
into dry clothes, cooked dinner and
then, fully clothed, went to bed. In
spite of being bushed and all the
clothes and blankets and towels cover-

Postal Rates

Will Go Up

On Jan. 7
An increase in postal rates will
become effective in the Canal Zone
January 7.
It is the result of the recent "Post-
age Revenue and Federal Salary Act
of 1967" which was passed by Con-
gress and is applicable to the Canal
New rates between the Canal Zone
and the United States which will
affect Canal Zone postal patrons are
10 cents an ounce for airmail letters;
8 cents each for airmail cards; 6 cents
an ounce for surface letters; 5 cents
each for cards sent surface mail.

in the January 5 SPILLWAY.

78% of High School Graduates

Are Continuing Their Education

A followup study of the Balboa
and Cristobal High School graduating
classes of 1967 shows an overwhelm-
ing majority are continuing their edu-
Of the 465 graduates, 364 (78 per-
cent) are enrolled in some form of
post-secondary educational program.
Most (321) are enrolled in colleges
and universities. Nursing, business,
technical, vocational, and trade schools
account for the remainder.
Ten percent of the 1967 graduates
are in the Armed Forces. The Navy
leads with 21, the Air Force is next
with 14, and nine are in the Army.
This group includes three girls, one
in each of the three services.
Of the remainder of the graduates,
5 percent were working, 4 percent
unemployed, and 3 percent house-

New Personnel Manual Effective Monday

The Canal organization has a new
personnel manual which will super-
sede the present one, originally pub-
lished in 1951. The new manual is to
be known as "The Panama Canal Per-
sonnel Manual," or PCPM. PCPM
also incorporates Executive Regula-
tions (ER's) and General Orders
(CO's) not published in the Canal
Zone Administration and Regulations
(CZAR) and Title 35, Code of Fed-
eral Regulations (35 CFR).
In essence, the new manual does
not contain any substantive changes.
It has been codified and placed in
the format of the Federal Personnel
Manual (FPM). It supplements both
the FPM and the regulations of the
Secretary of the Army published in
the Policy and Regulations Manual
issued by the Canal Zone Civilian
Personnel Policy Coordinating Board.

PCPM also achieves uniformity
with other Federal personnel author-
ities. It facilitates citation and cross-
reference to these regulations and
Contents of the old manual have
been reviewed and obsolete material
has been deleted. Existing material
has been rewritten for clarity and
style. Several new items have been
inserted. These topics, for example,
cover Maternity Leave and Equal
Employment Opportunity in the
Canal organization.
In compliance with ER 69, "Em-
ployee Management Cooperation,"
drafts of proposed chapters were for-
warded to employee organizations for
review and comment. These chapters
were those which were substantially
revised or new chapters included in
the manual.

The new publication represents the
culmination of a project begun under
the administration of Governor Carter
".. to compilate, codify, and revise
existing Canal regulations." The pro-
ject has led to the revision of 35 CFR,
publication of CZAR and now the
issuance of PCPM.
The manual has been distributed
throughout the Canal organization
and is available to any employee for
his perusal. Employee organizations
and individuals may purchase the
manual upon written request to the
Chief, Administrative Services Divi-
sion, Balboa Heights. The cost, $5,
also covers expense of future revisions
and their transmittal to those having
copies of the new manual.
The effective date of the manual is
January 1.

are enrolled there. The other 221 who
are attending college have scattered
to 128 different colleges in 38 States
of the United States as well as Pan-
ama, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Swit-,
More selected Texas (23) than any
other State. Florida, with 16, was
second and California, with 15, a
close third. Texas also has more differ-
ent schools represented than any other
State. Members of the 1967 class are
attending 13 schools there.
Outside of the Canal Zone College,
Texas Christian University, with five,
has the largest number of Canal Zone
freshmen. Next is the University of
Puerto Rico, which has four.

Mobile X-ray

To Be in Paraiso

On January 2, 3
The new Canal Zone Health Bu-
reau Mobile X-ray Unit will be in
Paraiso January 2 and 3 to serve the
Paraiso-Pedro Miguel area.
The X-rays are made free of
charge. All residents living in the area
may X-rayed. This service is available
to domestics, taxi drivers, and other
persons in the area who request it.
Children under 15 years of age will
not be X-rayed and all dependents
under 21 years of age must have
written permission or be accompanied
by a parent or guardian.
Mobile X-ray units have been
operating in the United States as im-
portant tuberculosis case-finding tech-
niques for the past 30 years. In Pan-
ama, the units have been in operation
for approximately 10 years.

Income Tax Course
The Business Administration De-
partment of Canal Zone College will
offer a course in Federal Income Tax
during the spring semester. The class
will be offered for 3 semester hours
of credit. A student may audit the
course without the prerequisite of
1 year of accounting with the permis-
sion of the chairman of the Business
The class will meet Tuesdays and
Thursday from 4:40 to 6:05 p.m.
Registration will be January 2-5 and
8-12. Practice will be given in prepar-
ing returns. The course is required of
all accounting majors for a bacca-
laureate degree.

LP Release by

Mario Fabrega

A musical greeting for the New
Year, appropriately titled "De Gala,"
with Mario FAbrega playing his inter-
national music on organ and piano,
was released this week placing the
musical spotlight on a talented Pan-
ama City musician and composer who
is employed as an accountant in the
Panama Canal's Office of the Comp-
"De Gala" has been preceded by
three successful long playing records
of the music of Mario FAbrega. This
one, in which he plays solos and with
his conjunto, brings together present
day melody with the smooth flow of
Latin music and is the most varied
album he has made. Selections range
from his own boleros, which include
"Aiioranza," "Tierra Mia," and "Este
Amor," to medleys and the catchy
melody of "Up With People."
Mario Faibrega, who received his
degree of Bachelor of Economic
Science as an accounting specialist
from the University of Panama in
1966, is in the General Ledger and
Processing Branch of the Accounting
Division at the Administration Build-
ing, Balboa Heights.
He is married and lives in El Can-
grejo, Panama City.

ing them, it was a cold, cold night for
the hikers and no one slept soundly
that first night in the wilderness.
In the morning, still hemmed in by
fog, and with rain still pouring down,
they had breakfast and then put on
the same wet clothes they had shed
the previous night. They descended
the hill, hired a young guide, crossed
the river again and continued the trek
through the beautiful hills.
They followed a trail through the.
jungle for a couple hours and then
came upon a sunbathed lano to Las
Minas. On and on they walked until
they reached the junction of the Las
Minas and San Miguel Rivers where
they had their first rest of the day on
a rocky little island in mid-stream.
The roughest part of the trip was
crossing Loma del Tigre. After
wading a fair sized stream, they hired
some pack horses to carry the packs
as far as Quebrada Grande, where
they paid off the drivers, who could
go no farther.
Shouldering their packs again, they
entered Quebrada Grande, picked a
campsite on the edge of a nice clear
stream near an orange grove and a
vacant bohio. They washed their dirty
clothes in the stream, had supper and
settled down for the night, dog-tired.
Early the next morning, the guide
arrived with two pack horses and they
hit the trail again. It was more of the

After crossing a small stream called
Quebrada Las Manias, the trail
leveled off a bit and they finally
reached Rio Indio.
They crossed the fast-moving river
twice and after several more hours of
hiking over the rough terrain, arrived
at San Cristobal, the first pueblo they
had encountered on the journey.
Hammocks were set up in the school-
house. The next morning they headed
for Sardinia, where a cayuco awaited

Natalie Griffin of Diablo, instructor
of trainable handicapped children at
Diablo Elementary School, is the re-
cipient of the Outstanding Citizen of
1967 award presented by the Veterans
of Foreign Wars, Department of the
Panama Canal Zone.
In her letter of acknowledgment
of the honor, Mrs. Griffin spoke of the
people who work in Special Educa-
tion, the teenagers who give up
summer fun to work as volunteers,
the many organizations that help in
the program, the parents who do the
best job throughout a lifetime, and
the children.

Mrs. Darleen Ashby has been

is a sign that something about the
body's production of red blood cells
is not right. There are many causes of
anemia. Only a few are nutritional
deficiencies. For this reason, anemia
is a problem that requires the services
of a physician to diagnose and treat.
Our problem here is to try to prevent
only iron-deficiency anemia.
What exactly is iron-deficiency
anemia? An explanation begins with
oxygen. Man cannot live without
oxygen. It enters the body as we
breath air into the lungs. Every cell
from the top of the head to the tip
of the toes must be provided a steady
supply of oxygen.
Oxygen travels from the lungs to
every cell in only one way: it must
"hitch a ride" on the iron-containing
compound hemoglobin, which is
found in red blood cells. If there is
an insufficient supply of iron in the
diet, there is likely to be an insuffi-
cient amount of hemoglobin in the red
blood cells. With the reduced amount
of hemoglobin, less oxygen can reach
the cells.
The problem of iron-deficiency
anemia can be traced to this decrease
in the oxygen-carrying substance
hemoglobin. The individual runs a
greater risk from infection and other
stresses. As in the case of any nutri-
tional deficiency, there exists also the
real possibility of a deficiency of other
nutrients. The anemic person is pale,
listless, irritable, and often tired.
A person in this condition obviously
cannot perform at his best level on

enough iron stored in his liver to last
about 6 months, or until he doubles
his birth weight. By this time he
should be eating a variety of foods,
including cereal, egg yolk and meat
which are all good sources of iron.
As the child grows and his body in-
creases in size, the amount of blood
circulating throughout the body also
To make this ever-increasing amount
of blood, a constant source of iron
must be available. The growing child
needs a large amount of iron and runs
the risk of developing anemia quickly.
The term "milk anemia" is heard at
times. There is nothing in milk that
causes anemia; and neither is there
any iron. The unwise mother who
allows her baby to fill up on milk and
cat no solids is denying him his only
source of iron. Hence the presence of
anemia in babies or toddlers whose
diet consists only (or mainly) of milk.
Another time of stress is for the
adolescent girl who is both growing
and also beginning the monthly men-
stual flow. This loss of blood is a nor-
mal loss, to be sure, but is the reason
women have a higher requirement for
iron than do men.
The months of pregnancy represent
growth also-growth of the unborn
baby for whom the mother must pro-
vide the raw materials. Combination
of a poor diet and frequent pregnan-
cies often leads to anemia in both
mother and baby.
Often people think they know what
is wrong with themselves and buy
pills or tonics at the drug counters.
Self diagnosis is dangerous. Mistakes
can be costly. Money spent on over-
the-counter medicines is wasted, as
the medicine is either worthless or
capable of distorting the true picture
of the disease. Any anemia must be
diagnosed by a doctor-first to iden-
tify the kind and second to identify
the cause. To prevent anemia to begin
with, to support the doctor's therapy
with drugs, and to prevent a recur-
rence, throughout one's entire life
iron-rich foods must be included in
the daily diet. During the periods of
stress discussed it is needed in even
greater quantities.
How do we get iron in the diet?
The best food sources are meat, liver,
eggs, and dark green leafy vegetables
such as spinach, collards, mustard and
turnip greens, and broccoli. Dried
fruits, such as apricots, prunes and
raisins, are other important sources.
For the small infant, commercially
prepared baby cereals are a very good
source because they are enriched with
iron and because the baby eats a
comparatively large quantityof cereal.
For the health protection of your
family: include iron-rich foods in
every day's meals.

tente ha sido escrito de nuevo para
darle mayor claridad y mejor estilo.
Se han insertado algunos articulos
nuevos. Cubren por ejemplo, Vacacio-

Plegaria Paternal

Hace unas semanas vi cuando un auto arrollaba a una nifiita
que cruzaba la calle. Vi al padre de la criatura correr hacia ella
y, con desesperaci6n infinita, tomarla en sus brazos y apretarla
contra su pecho, sabiendo que su tesoro agonizaba.
En ese moment vi todos los planes que se habian trazado para
su future hechos mil pedazos y vi tambien la mirada de angustia
que habia en su cara. S6lo puedo rogar al cielo que tal cosa no
suceda de nuevo.
Mi hija, que tiene 6 ahos, empezd hoy a ir a la escuela. Su
perrita Mota la despidi6 en la puerta de la casa lloriqueando
lastimeramente, posiblemente pensando que eso de la educacidn
no le gustaba nada.
Por la noche, antes de acostarse, ella me cont6 sobre su nueva
experiencia en la escuela; me habld de la nifia que se sienta
delante, que tiene el pelo rubio y del niiio que hace muecas;
sobre la maestra que lo ve y lo oye todo y sobre una nifia grande
que no cree en los Reyes Magos. Hablamos sobre muchas cosas-
cosas terriblemente importantes y otras sin importancia alguna.
Mientras escribo estas lines mi nifia estd durmiendo con su
munieca Lolita en sus brazos.
Cuando su muheca se rompe o se le parte un dedo o se golpea
la cabeza, fdcilmente se la puedo arreglar. Pero cuando mi hija
va a cruzar la calle entonces ella estd en sus manos, SENOR
A mi me es impossible estar a su lado a cada moment. Para
pagarle la casa, la ropa y la educaci6n, tengo que salir a trabafar
todos los dias.
A usted le pido, SENOR CONDUCTOR, que me ayude a cuidarla.
Conduzca con cuidado, aminore la velocidad cuando pase cerca
de colegios y en las intersecciones. Recuerde tambien que los
nihos corren por detrds de los vehiculos estacionados.
Por favor, no arrolle a mi pequefia hijita.
(Firmado) UN PADRE.

La YMCA de Panama Tiene Curso

De Natacion Para Principiantes

El curso de nataci6n para princi-
piantes, es ofrecido por la YMCA Na-
cional, a todas aquellas personas (j6-
venes y adults) que no saben nadar.
Dicho curso consiste en proporcio-
nar al aprendiz los conocimientos ne-
cesarios con el prop6sito de que se
baste por si solo en el agua. En esta
forma, se inicia al estudiante en las
primeras fases de la instrucci6n, como
lo es la adaptaci6n sicofisica al am-

El Banco Interamericano de Desa-
rrollo ha concedido un prestamo de
$13 millones a la Nacional Financie-
ra, de Mexico, para ayudarle a finan-
ciar un program de construcci6n de
pequenos canales de riego por valor
de $26 millones, en la parte nororien-
tal de Mexico, que abastecerd a una
zona de alrededor de 32.000 hectd-

biente acuAtico. Una vez superada
esta fase se contin6a con el control
de la respiraci6n y la flotabilidad.
Paso por paso se prosigue con las
siguientes fases las cuales siguen un
orden 16gico, ademAs de ir de lo mAs
simple a lo mis complicado, con lo
cual se contribute a que el alumno
asimile mAs y por consiguiente pueda
aprender mas rApidamente.
Finalmente el aprendiz es sometido
a una prueba de suficiencia en el agua
mediante la cual deberA demostrar
que se puede bastar por si solo en el
agua; ademAs de pasar satisfactoria-
mente el curso, se harA acreedor a
una insignia que lo clasifica como
principiante y estarn tambi6n capa-
citado para seguir el curso de nadador

Feliz Navidad, dice la leyenda que, dirigidos por la Sra. Elvira de Bradfield, forman los alumnos de educaci6n espe-
cial de la Escuela Primaria de Rainbow City, mientras los demis alumnos de la escuela entonan tradicionales
villancicos. La escena tuvo lugar durante la fiesta de Navidad que los alumnos y el personal docente de esa es-
cuela del sector AtlAntico presentaron en el Gimnasio de la Escuela Secundaria de Rainbow City, el 15 de diciem-
bre. Muchos padres de familiar asistieron al acto y quedaron complacidos de la actuaci6n de sus hijos.

Herman S. Nelson

Se Jubila con 20

Anos de Servicio
Herman S. Nelson, camarero en el
buque gnra de la Divisi6n de Dragas
Atlas (foto en la secci6n inglesa), y
quien se jubila mafiana, despues de
20 afios de servicio con el Canal de
PanamA, recibi6 un premio por Ser-
vicios Superiores y un cheque de $156
de manos de R. W. Lowry, jefe
interino de la Divisi6n de Dragas.
A Nelson se le conoce como "Neli"
en la Divisi6n de Dragas, pero los
fanAticos del boxeo lo recuerdan como
el "Snowball" de finales de los afos
treinta. Fue boxeador peso liviano en
aquellos tiempos en la "Vie'a Pista de
Patinaje" de Col6n, y recuerda que
le pagaban $5 por pelea.
Nacido en Old Harbour, St. Cathe-
rine, Indias Occidentales Britinicas,
vino al Istmo en 1905, con su padre,
Edward Nelson, quien fue empleado
como impresor en el Edificio de Ad-
ministraci6n y vivi6 en Emperador
durante los dias de la construcci6n
del Canal.
Cuando la familiar se mud6 a la
ciudad de PanamA, Nelson trabaj6
como cantinero en el Century Club,
el Bar Mitchell y en otros conocidos
oasis de la ciudad de PanamA. Luego
se mud6 a Col6n, donde trabaj6 en

de tres alumnos del 69 grado.

ig Inaugurada en R. City

iM NuNu eva Cancha de Tenis
___________________ b__

Una nueva cancha de tenis, situada detras del Gimnasio de la Escuela Secundaria,'fue inaugurada el 20- del
corriente en Rainbow City. El corte de la simb6lica cinta fue hecho por el Profesor Oscar Suman Carrillo, Director
de Educaci6n Fisica de las Escuelas Latinoamericanas de la Zona del Canal. A la izquierda estA el Sr. Norman
Demers, Director Interino de Transporte y Terminales, quien represent al Gobernador de la Zona del Canal, y a
la derecha, el Sr. Frank A. Castles, Superintendente de las Escuelas de la Zona del Canal.

Retroceso en Seguridad

En muchas fases de nuestra vida cultural y econ6mica hay evidencias
continues de un alarmante descenso en los niveles de nuestros logros.
Los libros que much gente describe, sin haberse preocupado por aprender
a escribir, las peliculas de las cuales no se desprende nada que sea positive
para nuestras vidas, el Ilamado "arte modern" el que toma formas grotescas,
etc., son todas evidencias que encontramos en el diario vivir, de no import
que pais, de la caida en que nos estamos dejando arrastrar.
Cuando alguien junta unas cuantas piezas de hierro y llama a "eso" una
obra de arte, probablemente lo ignoramos, pero cuando Ilega tan lejos quo
lo compare con el David de Michelangelo, entonces si deberiamos decir que
la seudo obra de arte es uinicamentc hierro viejo, y lo es. Pero lo lamentable
es que no s6lo no hacemos esto, sino que las compramos y exhibimos en
nuestros hogares y lugares de trabajo como expresiones del "arte moderno.
Recientemente, este mismo retroceso ha empezado a notarse en Prevenci6n
de Accidentes. Las compafiias gastan cantidad de dinero en carteles que
distribuyen en today la plant. Otras imprimen folletos de todo tipo sobre
diferentes temas de seguridad. Las hay que fonnan comit6s de seguridad, los
que pasan horas y horas cambiando ideas sobre las posibles medidas a
tomarse. Muchas compaflias concentran sus esfuerzos en los resguardos, a tal
extreme que a veces los colocan en exceso, constituyendo en estos casos
verdaderos peligros. eY que decir de las que instituyen programs de premios?
Premiarin a cada trabajador de cada departamento que logre mejorar un
record de seguridad. Muchas compaiiias envian peri6dicamente boletines de
seguridad a las casas de los trabajadores.
Todas y cada una de las medidas antes mencionadas, que adoptan las
diferentes companies, son importantes en la prevenci6n de accidents, pero
no han de dar los resultados deseados si en todos y cada uno de los casos no
se les agrega un factor indispensable, la actitud de cada trabajador hacia la
Seguridad y su deseo de trabajar con seguridad.
Si un trabajador tiene en mente la Seguridad y si ha recibido instrucciones
adecuadas sobre los peligros existentes en su trabajo, es casi seguro que
trabajarA con Seguridad y que no tendr't accidents.
No existed raz6n alguna por la cual las empresas no puedan lograr records
sin accidents si "venden" la idea de la Seguridad a sus trabajadores y usan

los otros medios disponibles.

El titulo del articulo, "Seamos Con-
cicntes de los Enfriamientos por Aire",
es sugestivo y hace hincapid en el
hecho de que no es unicamente la

correct sobre la constituci6n del
cuerpo human o sobre los criterios

Un suenio de casi 6 aios se convir-
ti6 en realidad el mi6rcoles 20 de di-
ciembre, cuando fue inaugurada la
magnifica cancha de tenis de Rainbow
Los miembros del Consejo Civico

hicieran realidad ese anhelo, larga-
mente sentido, de dotar a esa pobla-
ci6n de una verdadera cancha de tenis
que pudiera ser usada por los aman-
tes de ese deported en la comunidad.
Mas de 300 residents se dieron
cita en la ceremonial de inauguraci6n,
que fue realzada ademais por funcio-
narios de Panama y de la Zona del

Alfredo Cragwell, Director de la Es-
cucla Secundaria de Rainbow City,
quien inmediatamente entreg6 una

deportivas estarin bajo el cuidado de
esa division y servirAn ademtis a la

sejo Civico de Rainbow City, Sr.

los actos de inauguraci6n. Dijo Barrow
que sentia sumo placer en presentar a
la persona que estaria directamente a
cargo de la cancha de tennis, el ins-
tructor de educacien fisica Stanley
Loney. Y record que el trabajo de
Loncy, durante mais de 25 alios, ha
