Pay Coming

February 5
The Panama Canal Comptroller
announces that Canal organization
classified and postal employees will
be paid February 5 for the retroactive
portion of the recent pay raise granted
by Congress. This retroactive pay
covers the five pay periods between
October 8, 1967, and December 16,
It originally was planned to pay

ruary 19 regular paychecks. Work
of the Payroll Branch and conversion
of the payroll system to computer

Plans therefore were changed to pay
the retroactive portion of the pay
raise 2 weeks earlier than originally

4-Day Plane Trip to U.S. Took

A Little Longer, But It Was Fun

It was a real switch for Maggie!
At a time when most teenagers are
waiting with bated breath for parental
permission to take driving lessons,
her father, Lt. Col. C. R. Vincent,
Chief of the Sea Level Canal Support
Division, asked Maggie if she would
like to learn to fly.
Seventeen-year-old Margaret Vin-
cent, better known as "Maggie," is a
senior at Balboa High School and her
interests extend beyond watching TV,
miniskirts, eating sweets and boys.
Her dreams and aspirations took a
definite direction skyward with dad's
suggestion. She began flying lessons
at Albrook Field in July and at the
end of the year had chalked up 44
hours flying time.
When Dr. Alan Randolph, her in-
structor and a pathologist at Gorgas
Hospital, transferred to the States he
invited Maggie to be his co-pilot on
the trip north. The New Year was
only 6 hours old when Dr. Randolph
and Maggie left Tocumen Airport in
a Cessna 150 for what was to be a
4-day jaunt.

The first stop was in Liberia in
Costa Rica where turbulence forced
them to land. Bright and early the
next morning, they set out for Mana-
gua, Nicaragua, where they took on
fuel and departed for Guatemala
City. The next day, heading for
Puerto Barrios on the Caribbean, they
hit a strong head wind while flying
through a mountain pass.
A 45-minute flight under normal
conditions, the trip took 2 hours and
40 minutes. Next on the itinerary was
Belice, British Honduras, where they
encountered more bad weather. As
soon as atmospheric conditions per-
mitted, they flew across the Yucatan
Peninsula to Ciudad del Carmen in
Mexico. The next day they continued
to Vera Cruz, took on fuel and left
immediately for Tampico, located
about 6 miles from the Gulf of Mexi-
co. A cold front moving in from the
States held them land-bound here
for 5 days. Tampico, well known as
a vacation resort and leading Mexi-
can port, offered many tourist attrac-
tions to fill in the time they were
As soon as the weather cleared,
they headed for Matamoros on the
Mexico-United States border, then
went on to Brownsville, Tex., and
continued to Corpus Christi where
they overnighted. The next morning
they proceeded to Houston where
Maggie caught a commercial airline
plane and returned to school and
home in the Canal Zone.
The 2,500 mile trip took 10 days
instead of 4. Maggie added 28 hours
to her flying time. She has already
taken the written Federal Aviation
test and will soon receive her pilot's
And Maggie and her instructor are
planning a much more ambitious
flight-across the Atlantic, from
Boston to Copenhagen, in a Cessna
twin-engine Skymaster.

$402,125 Low

Bid on Work

At Gorgas

An apparent low bid of $402,125
has been submitted by Dillon Con-
struction, Inc., on a project for re-
modeling and air conditioning of Sec-
tion B of Gorgas Hospital.
Bidding on the work was close,
with E. O. Hauke of Colon entering
a bid of $402,474, only $349 under
the Dillon bid. Carruth International
bid $416,159.
Another contract for modernizing
facilities of Section A of Gorgas Hos-
pital, at a cost of $589,800, was
awarded the Dillon Co. in Septem-
ber last year. Work on this section
was 23 percent completed at the end
of January.
Similar work is to be done in Sec-
tion B, which also houses general
medical wards.
The work being done at Gorgas is
part of a general plan to bring facili-
ties of the hospital up to a par with
those of the new hospital annex,
which was completed in 1964.

500 To Compete

In Elementary

Meet Tonight
The third annual Pacific Elemen-
tary Track and Field Meet tonight at
Balboa Stadium, will bring together
about 500 Pacific side little athletes
from the various Canal Zone elemen-
tary schools on this side of the Isth-
mus who will compete in their age
To the visitors attending the track
and field meet, this will be a demon-
stration of the "new" physical edu-
cation. Mrs. Margaret F. Morris of
the Diablo Heights Elementary
School, director of this meet, ex-
plained that the "new" physical edu-
cation program is grounded in devel-
opmental activities which include in-
creasing capacity in cardio-respira-
tory endurance, muscular strength
and endurance, agility, flexibility and
coordination, functional physical edu-
cation, and recreational activities that
are engaged in for enjoyment and to
maintain physical condition.
This year's program will feature
three new events. These are the shot-
put for boys, the high jump and the
hurdles for boys and girls. These
sports are not taught, usually, on the
elementary level, but the boys and
girls have been attending training
sessions at the Curundu and Balboa
Stadiums conducted by Dr. L. E.
The Curundu Junior High School
Band directed by Wallace E. Wood-
ruff, will furnish the music.

Elks Plan


This is the Centennial year of the
Benevolent and Protective Order of
Elks of the United States of America
and members of Panama Canal Zone
Lodge No. 1414, Balboa, and Cris-
tobal Canal Zone Lodge No. 1542
are joining their million and a half
brothers throughout America in
celebrating the event.
Exalted Rulers George A. Folger
of Lodge 1414 and Sherman A.
Hammond of Lodge 1542 announced
that a Centennial Committee is plan-
ning a series of events and activities
during 1968. One of the Centennial
highlights on the Isthmus will be a
gala birthday party on the 100th
anniversary, to be held at the Tivoli
Guest House, Ancon, the evening of
February 16.
New York Lodge No. 2, the found-
ing Lodge, will toast the Centennial
at a dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria
Hotel February 17. Similar celebra-
tions will be staged in Chicago,
Boston, and other cities throughout
the 50 States, Puerto Rico, the Canal
Zone, Guam, and the Philippines-
wherever one of the 2,100 Elks
Lodges is located.
The BPOE was organized by 15
actors and entertainers on Sunday
evening, February 16, 1868, to en-
courage good fellowship among men
of the theater and lend a helping
hand to members in distress, which,
in those days especially, was fre-
quently. Today, the Elks spend more
than $10 million yearly on bene-
volent, educational, and patriotic
programs for the benefit of their
fellow Americans.
"Looking ahead" was the keynote
struck by Robert E. Boney, Las
Cruces, N. Mex., Grand Exalted
Ruler of the order, in a Centennial
message to all Elks Lodges. "We
shall manifest our unity, today as a
century ago, in good fellowship, our
fidelity to the principles of Charity,
Justice, and Brotherly Love, our un-
wavering commitment to the dem-
ocratic ideals of one Nation, under
God," the Elks leader said.
"While we point to our proud past
with its unparalleled record of service
to our country and to all Americans,
let us make our Centennial a time of
resolve to face the challenging future
with faith and confidence."

"Sidewalks" To Play
The Sidewalk Combo will play for
the dancing set at the Balboa Teen
Club tonight from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.
Dress will be sportswear. Members
are admitted free. Non-members pay
a nominal fee.

Veteran Honored

George E. Shoemaker, who retired
this month as material manager, In-
ventory Management Branch, Divi-
sion of Storehouses in the Supply and
Community Service Bureau, con-
cluded 30 years' service with the
storehouse, highlighted by three per-
fonnance ratings of "Excellent."
Upon retirement, he was presented a
Superior Service Award, accom-
panied by a check for $150.
Born in Philadelphia, Pa., he spent
his younger years at Richmond Hill,
N.Y. While with the U.S. Army he
first came to the Canal Zone in March
1935 and was stationed at Fort Ran-
dolph. He left in December 1937 but
returned shortly thereafter to be dis-
charged at Fort Randolph on Decem-
ber 28, 1937, taking a position with
the Panama Canal Storehouse Divi-
sion the following day as a clerk-
During his three decades with the
organization he made numerous sug-
gestions which were incorporated
into Storehouse operations.
He and his wife, Carmen, a teacher
at a girls' orphanage in Panama,
reside in San Francisco, Panama, and
their garden there provides much of
the vegetables supply for the orphan-
To make his first year of retire-
ment memorable, he says, he is plan-
ning a 3-month tour of Europe
starting in August.

Dryja Names Brindley Chairman

For Engineer Week Activities

Walter Dryja, president of the
Canal Zone Society of Professional
Engineers, has announced appoint-
ment of a committee to plan the acti-
vities of National Engineer Week,
February 18-24, with Maj. Peter
Brindley, P.E., as chairman.
National Engineer Week activities
will include a television quiz pro-
gram, engineer for a day sponsorship,
and will conclude with a dinner-
dance in observance of the 11th anni-
versary of the Canal Zone Society of
Professional Engineers.
This year's theme is "Design for
World Health." The measurement of
effectiveness of what engineers do
and achieve must be made by its
effect on people. Increasing impor-
tance has been given to the applica-
tion of the professional engineer's

knowledge and methods in the fields
of biological research, surgical and
clinical operations, and in the devel-
opment of health protection devices
as well as life support apparatus. The
supervision of the engineering aspects
of medical facilities and the applica-
tion of techniques to improve world
health involve many of the country's
engineers today.
During Canal construction days,
the engineers recognized the need to
provide a healthful environment for
the construction workers. Through
the years, environmental problems
have been solved by trained engi-
neers. Herein lies the pride in the
engineers of today . the pride
which is the keystone to meet the
new challenges today and those in
the years ahead.

By Emily J. Price

Ilka Chase's latest travel book is
called Fresh from the Laundry. It
describes the adventures of the ver-
satile actress and her doctor husband
in their visit to the Communist coun-
tries of Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania,
Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, and to
definitely non-Communist Greece.
Much of the traveling was done by
car and there are some comic touches
in the description of two panic-
stricken Americans and the wild
chauffeurs of the Balkan countryside.
Excellent photographs illustrate this
pleasant book.
Sculpture from Junk is the rather
misleading title of a book by Henry
Rasmusen and Art Grant. More pre-
cisely it is sculpture or art objects
made from articles which had a differ-
ent original purpose, including nature-
objects such as stones, shells, and
driftwood. There are some objects
made from old automobile parts and
from coffee tins, but all are interest-
ingly transformed. The authors in-
clude a history of this type of art work
and a description of techniques and
Teenage gangs and policemen
throng the pages of Justice On the
Rocks by Bill Knox. Set in Glasgow,
this is a fast-moving police procedure
novel. The Scottish setting and phra-

seology lend an exotic note, but the
brutal pattern of teenage crime seems
all too familiar.
The Decorative Arts of the Mariner,
edited by Gervis Frere-Cook is a
glamorous compiling of all the arts
that have to do with ships and sea-
faring. Beautiful illustrations accom-
pany the different chapters, each by
an authority on his subject. Subjects
range from the longships of the
Vikings to Mississippi steamboats,
from figureheads to scrimshaw, and
from charts and maps to knot boards.

Library Journal

Makes Its Debut

A new publication has made its
appearance on the Isthmus with the
initial issue of AGLIP of the Asso-
ciation of Graduate Librarians on the
Isthmus of Panama.
AGLIP, a bilingual library journal
in the form of a bulletin, is produced
by Joseph Kane, librarian at the
Canal Zone College Library, and
Gary T. Peterson, audio visual re-
source specialist, Canal Zone College.
In this first library journal to be
produced on the Isthmus of Panama,
an invitation is extended to all libra-
rians to submit experiences, research,
and other data they would like to see
published and shared with the mem-
bers of AGLIP.
Officers of the association for the
current year are: Alcira Mejia A.,
Barro Colorado Island Library, pres-
ident; Emily J. Price, Canal Zone
Library, vice president; Grace J.
Rider, Balboa High School Library,
secretary (English); Olivia Fierro,
USIS Library, secretary (Spanish);
and Beverly C. Williams, Canal Zone
Library, treasurer.
