Map "Trip"

Via Canal

In Exhibit
Visitors to Hemisfair will get a
vicarious voyage through the Pan-
ama Canal.
A sophisticated relief map of the
waterway, complete with lights,
transiting ships and a recorded nar-
ration, is a featured attraction at the
Panama pavilion.
The international exposition, which
opens tomorrow (April 6) in San
Antonio, Tex., is expected to attract
visitors from all over the United
States, Latin America, and Europe.
The Panama exhibit also includes
displays of the country's pottery,
art, handicrafts, coins, history, and
native costumes.
Live shows to be presented by
Panama's Tourist Institute at various
periods throughout the fair will fea-
ture folkloric dance groups and the
music of famed Panamanian organist
and composer Lucho AzcArraga.
The topographical map of the
Canal-more than 25 feet long-is
the central theme of the exhibit.
Lighting which is synchronized to a
taped narration will add realism to
the display.
Taking viewers on an imaginary
trip through the Canal, the narrator
describes its main features as they
appear to a ship passenger as the
vessel transits from Atlantic to
The 6-minute tape is cued to a
complex lighting system which
throws a spotlight on each feature
as it is mentioned. As viewers move
through the Canal on their make-
believe transit to the Pacific, a day-
light to nightfall transition is simu-
lated. When darkness falls, about
halfway through the crossing, the
Canal itself comes alive with the
lights of buoys, ships, lighthouses,
bank lighting and the communities
along the banks of the waterway.
Built for the Panama Canal by
Atkins & Merrill, Inc., of Sudbury,
Mass., the model is 25 feet long by
slightly more than 10 feet at its
widest point. The model of the Canal
which has been on display at the
Canal Zone Library for many years
was used as a mold for the Hemis-
fair display. The new model is of
unbreakable fiberglass. It is an up-
dated version and includes townsites,
the Thatcher Ferry Bridge, and many
other additional details.
Preparation for Panama Canal par-
ticipation in Hemisfair began many
months ago under the direction of
Col. James A. Betts, Director of En-
gineering and Construction, who was
designated to head the project when
the Canal organization was invited
by the Panama Government to pre-
sent a display in its pavilion.
The Panama Canal Information
Office prepared the script and rec-
orded the narration which accom-
panies the display. A Spanish lan-
guage version of the narration has
been printed in pamphlet form to
be distributed to Spanish-speaking
visitors to the Panama Pavilion.

Rock Show Saturday
The Canal Zone Gem and Mineral
Society will hold its annual Rock
Show and Bazaar at Stevens Circle
in Balboa Saturday, April 6, from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
On display will be jewelry, gift
items and other articles made by the
rockhounds from semiprecious stones.


BHS Drama Club

Presenting "Dino"

April 18, 19, 20

For its next production in April,
the Balboa High School Drama Club
will present "Dino," a modern play
dealing with the pertinent problem
of youth in slum areas.
"Dino" was written by Reginald
Rose as a television play and was so
widely acclaimed that Kristin Sergel
adapted it to the stage.
The play was chosen by the Balboa
High School Drama Club for the
opportunities it offers in acting such
roles as Dino, the teenage killer, and
Shirley, the shy, intelligent girl
scorned by her companions, and for
the insight into the problems of a
teenager brought up without love.
Jerry Faulconer as Dino and Stella
Tremblay as Shirley play the lead
roles. Mr. Mandel, the psycho-
therapist, is played by Jim Latimer
and Jackie, the Brooklyn receptionist
of the settlement house, by Shirley
"Dino" will be presented at the
Balboa High School Auditorium
April 18, 19, and 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets
are now on sale at the high school,
or may be purchased at the box office.

Annuities Up 3.9%
The U.S. Civil Service Com-
mission has announced an annuity
increase of 3.9 percent which also
will benefit all Federal employees
retiring on or before April 29.
This increase is effective May 1
and will show up in annuity
checks dated June 1. Employees
anticipating early retirement may
contact the Employee Services
Branch if additional information
is desired.

C.Z. United Fund

Annual Meeting

To Be April 16
The annual meeting of members
of the Canal Zone United Fund, Inc.,
will be held Tuesday, April 16, at
2 p.m., in the Board Room of
the Administration Building, Balboa
The principal purpose of the
meeting will be to receive the pres-
ident's annual report and to elect
new trustees.
Each person who has contributed
to the United Fund is a member and
is cordially invited to attend the
annual meeting.

Streets Are for Vehicles

S. and NOT for Children

Playing in the streets is an impor-
tant cause of deaths of children re-
sulting from automobile accidents.
One study revealed that there were
four times more children killed in
streets or on highways than by all
the leading childhood diseases put
Investigation of the frequency and
location of pedestrian street accidents
shows that the greatest number of
accidents involving young children
occur within one block of the victim's
home-many times right in front of
the child's home.
Children playing in the streets,
chasing balls into the street, walking
in the street when there is a side-
walk, crossing a street against the
light, crossing a street in a place other
than at a crosswalk, and darting out
between parked cars, are the victims
of these accidents.

The development of playgrounds
in communities has brought a signi-
ficant decrease in the number of
accidents involving younger children,
as they spend more time in the play-
ground and less on the street and
exposure to traffic-if their parents
make sure they play there-and not
in the streets. Very few accidents
happen in the areas adjacent to
recreation facilities.
The aim of playgrounds provided
in the Canal Zone communities is to
get children off the streets, which
are unsafe as a place to play. It is
the duty of parents, Canal Zone
police officials say, to instruct their
children of the safe places to play
and to teach them safety concepts in
terms of physical safety. They should
be made aware of the hazards of
vehicles and be taught to recognize
safety signs, signals and obey them.

Shortened Birth

Certificate Forms

Being Prepared

The Vital Statistics office of the
Health Bureau will issue new birth
certificate forms. They are now in
the final stage of printing and will
be issued as soon as they are received.
The certificate will be a short form
similar to birth certificates currently
issued in most of the United States.
They will be printed in English and
Spanish and will replace the two
long forms (all English and all
Spanish) now issued.
These short forms contain all the
vital information required for rec-
ording a birth and have been
approved by representatives of the
Immigration and Naturalization Serv-
ice of the Federal Government.
These forms also satisfy the require-
ments for obtaining Certificates of
U.S. Citizenship.
The old forms will still be valid
and it will not be necessary to request
new forms for replacement purposes.

CZC Alumni

Begin Survey

Of Careers
The Canal Zone College Alumni
Relations Committee is compiling a
survey of all former Canal Zone Col-
lege students, starting with the Class
of 1957. The purpose of this survey
is to bring records up to date on what
has happened in alumni's educational
and occupational careers since they
left Canal Zone College.
There also has been a recommen-
dation by the Middle States Accredit-
ing Association on compiling statistics
on students. This information will be
invaluable, too, in the further devel-
opment of the Canal Zone College
curriculum and in counseling present
and future students.
Information sheets are being sent
out and it is requested that alumni
complete and return them. 'An addi-
tional information sheet is being in-
cluded which the college hopes will
be forwarded to a classmate. In this
way it may be possible to reestablish
contact with the majority of former
students and graduates.
In many instances theseforms will
be mailed to the address of the
parents where the student was res-
iding while attending the college.
Parents are urged to forward all ma-
terials to their sons and/or daughters
so that contact with them may be
Cooperation of everyone is essen-
tial to our development of an alumni
mailing list and to accomplish this
current survey, said Walter Mikulich,
chairman of the Alumni Relations
Committee. Forms also are available

Personnel Administrative Assistant

Retires After 31 Years' Service

Nathan Fleckner, who retired
April 1 as Administrative Assistant in
the Panama Canal's Personnel Bu-
reau, had almost 31 years' service in
the Canal organization, to which was
added 4 years and 4 months U.S.
Army service.
He was active in the Canal's dis-
ability relief program, was known
as the "chief scrounger" for Asilos

peoples' homes in the Republic of
Panama, and had been a representa-
tive to the Republic of Panama for

Sergeant Miller, who was born in New York City, came to the Isthmus in
1937 and served in the Quartermaster Corps at Quarry Heights until 1940.
After working for the Marine Bureau for approximately a year, he transferred

Bella Indiecita Dio Nombre a una Flor

Virgilio M6ndez M6rida, joven li-
terato panameio y autor de la obra
costumbrista "Las Campanas que
Doblaron Solas", nos narra en su li-
bro la leyenda de una linda indiecita
lamnada Orquidea. Era de una belle-
za sin par, tanto fisica como espiri-
tualmente. Vivia con su madre po-
bremente en ina casita de los alre-
dedores de Cafiazas.
Una noche lleg6 a la puerta de su
casa una anciana cansada y ham-
brienta que a pesar de sus pobres
ropas tenia en su rostro como una
aureola de majestad, que hizo pensar
a madre e hija que fuera de la otra
vida. La pobre anciana comi6 lo que
le sirvieron, y nientras comia fijaba
la mirada en cl rostro de Orquidea.
La anciana le dijo:
"dConoc6is, una profecia que dice
que la floor mas bella no ha germinado
en la tierra, y que una doncella sen-
cilla y pura de esta cordillera, sera
esa floor?
"1Que libre y espontAneamente,
esa joven renunciara a todo bien te-
rrenal para que germine esa flor?
"'iQue la bienaventurada recibirA
una recompensa en el Paraiso?
Y despu6s de esto la anciana no

habl6 mis y fij6 la mirada en Orqui-
dea como dici6ndole: "ti serAs esa
floor .
Al dia siguiente desapareci6 la an-
ciana sin decir mis y meses despu6s
muri6 la madre de Orquidea. La mu-
chacha enterr6 a su madre y despu6s
de la filtima paletada de tierra, se
arrodillo para darle el ltinmo adi6s

con una plegaria. Mientras rezaba
se dio cuenta que las estrellas bri-
Ilaban mAs que nunca y evoc6 bellas
palabras de su madre sobre c6mo era
la morada eterna.
Despues de las evocaciones qued6
extasiada. Creia ver la cara de Dios
que le decia iVen, avecilla amada!
iVen, paloma fatigada! y Orquidea
sin vacilar extendi6 los brazos y ape-
nas dijo iGracias, Dios mio! su ahna
se fue volando hacia los cielos.
La luna ya se habia alzado tras los
montes y bafiaba con su luz al huerto
y a Orquidea de rodillas, rigida y
fria sobre un saliente de roca. Mas
cuando amaneci6 en donde habia
expirado la joven, se erguia una plan-
ta desconocida, con sus races blan-
quccinas expuestas al aire y abraza-
das a la roca de la tumba. Al soplar
el viento sus flores semejaban peque-
fias mariposas blancas, pero lo mis
fascinante era la paloma que todas
aprisionaban como la que presidio
el bautismo de Cristo.
Todos los moradores de los alre-
dedores fueron a admirar la bella
flor y para honrar la memorial de la
nifia que buscaban y que no pudieron
encontrar, la Ilamaron "Orquidea".

Al Ensenar Reglas de Seguridad

A sus Niiios, Evita Accidentes

El jugar en las calls es una de las
causes principles en las muertes de
nifios a consecuencia de accidents
automovilisticos. Un studio revel6
que hubo cuatro veces mAs muertes
de nijios en las calls o carreteras
que las causadas por todas las enfer-
medades infantiles juntas.
Investigaciones hechas acerca de
la frecuencia y lugar de accidents
de un peat6n en la calle demuestran
que el mayor nlimero de los acci-
dentes en que estan envueltos los
nifios ocurren a una cuadra de la
casa de la victima-ruchas veces
exactamente frente a la casa de la
Los nifios que juegan en las calls,
persiguen una pelota en la calle, ca-
minan en la calle cuando hay una
acera, cruzan una calle indebidamen-
te, cruzan una calle fuera de la linea
de seguridad, o se precipitan entire
autom6viles estacionados, son las
victims de estos accidents.
La creaci6n de campos de juegos

en las comunidades ha traido como
consecuencia una disminuci6n sig-
nificativa en el nimero de accidents
en que se ven envueltos nifios mAs
pequefios, por el hecho de que
pasan mayor parte del tiempo en
los parques infantiles que en la calle
expuestos al trafico-si sus padres
estan seguros de que juegan alli-y
no en las calls. Poquisimos acci-
dentes ocurren en las Areas adyacen-
tes a las instalaciones recreativas.
El objetivo de los campos de jue-
gos en las comunidades de la Zona
del Canal es apartar a los nifios de
las calls, que son un peligro para
ellos. Los padres tienen el deber,
dicen los oficiales de policia de la
Zona del Canal, de indicar a sus hijos
cuAles son los lugares seguros para
jugar y ensefiarles concepts de se-
guridad en cuanto a la seguridad
fisica. Ellos deberin conocer los pe-
ligros de los vehiculos y aprender a
reconocer las sefiales de seguridad y
sefiales de trAnsito y a obedecerlas.


La Nutrici6n y Usted

Esta es la sexta de una series de con-
ferencias dictadas por la Sra. Shirley
O. Dean, especialista en nutricidn de
salubridad piblica en la Divisidn de
Medicine Preventiva. Tambin en sea
nutrici6n en la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal.

Las frutas y los vegetables pertene-
cen al tercero de los Cuatro Grupos
BAsicos de Alimentos. Este grupo in-
cluye la variedad mis grande de
atractivos y apetitosos alimentos su-
mamente importantes para el cuerpo;
y quizAs es todavia al que menos se
le aprecia y usa entire los cuatro
grupos de alimentos.
En cuanto a las frutas y vegetables:
En primer lugar, ofrecen una con-
tribuci6n generosa de nutrimentos
1. Vitamina A
para promover el crecimiento y
reparaci6n de los tejidos del
para ayudar a mantener una
vision normal y los ojos sanos
para ayudar a mantener la piel
y las paredes nasales y bucales
2. Vitamina C
para ayudar a former el mate-
rial cimentador que mantiene
unidas las c6lulas. Este mate-
rial cimentador es necesario.
para ayudar a mantener las en-
cias fuertes y sanas
para ayudar en la resistencia a
la infecci6n
para ayudar a construir y man-
tener los huesos, los miusculos
y la sangre
para ayudar a cicatrizar fractu-
ras de huesos y heridas.
3. Carbohidratos
para proporcionar energia.
4. Hierro
para ayudar a former hemoglo-
bina y prevenir la anemia.
5. Calcio
para construir y mantener los
huesos y dientes.
para permitir una reacci6n nor-
mal de los nervios, mAisculos
y coraz6n
para ayudar en la coagulaci6n
correct de la sangre.
En segundo lugar, las frutas y ve-
getales contienen una fibra resistente
Ilamada celulosa. El cuerpo no pue-
de digerirla, por tal raz6n no realize
funciones metab6licas esenciales. Sin
embargo, por ser indigerible, esta
fibra da volume y textura a los des-
perdicios que se encuentran en el
intestine. Al hacer eso, ayuda a la
funci6n normal de los intestines y
ayuda a prevenir el estrefiimiento.
En tercer lugar, las frutas y vege-
tales afiaden variedad a las comidas.
Cualquiera familiar seguirA casi el
mismo patron de comidas dia a dia.
Ademas, los alimentos especificos del
desayuno y almuerzo son muy a me-

nudo los mismos todos los dias. Una
variedad mas grande de alimentos es
usada en la comida de la tarde, pero
ain aqui los hAbitos tienen races
profundas. Una de las maneras mAs
ficiles de agregar variedad y nuevo
interns al menm de siempre es a tra-
ves de los colors variados, textures
y sabores de las frutas y vegetables.
Cuatro o mas porciones diarias de
este grupo proporcionaran la canti-
dad necesaria de los nutrimentos
esenciales. Pero no todas las frutas
y vegetables poseen el mismo valor
Una de las cuatro porciones debe
ser rica en Vitamina A. Los alimen-
tos ricos en Vitamina A son los vege-
tales o frutas de color verde oscuro
o anaranjado. Los mis usados aqui
son la zanahoria, la naranja, el flame,
la batata, la mostaza, la espinaca,
mangos, pimientos, papaya y tomatoes.
Hay otros alimentos que contienen
Vitamina A (leche pura o fortificada,
mantequilla y la yema del huevo),
pero seria muy dificil llenar las nece-
sidades de la Vitamina A en la dieta
sin comer una de las frutas o vege-
tales mencionados.
Otra de las porciones de frutas y
vegetables debe ser rica en Vitami-
na C. Al oir esta vitamin siempre
pensamos en la naranja y la toronja,
esto es, en las frutas citricas. Cierta-
mente, estas son las mejores fuentes.
Pero en el Istmo de PanamA tenemos
la suerte de contar con otras frutas
de igual valor: mangos, papaya, gua-
yaba, fresa y melones. Estas frutas
pueden substituir en iguales cantida-
des a las naranjas o toronjas.
Existen otros alimentos que con-
tienen Vitamina C y son las diferen-
tes classes de coles, la espinaca, pi-
mientos verdes y tomatoes.
Las otras dos porciones de frutas
y vegetables recomendadas pueden
escogerse de entire las ya menciona-
das o de otra fruta o vegetal que
conozca el hombre.
Debido al advance tecnol6gico ac-
tual, pueden cosecharse frutas y ve-
getales de la mejor calidad y enla-
tarse o refrigerarse tan bien que poco
es el valor alimenticio que pierden
en tal procedimiento. En realidad,
existe poca o ninguna diferencia en
el contenido nutritivo de un product
fresco, congelado o enlatado.

La Universidad de la Zona

El ComitB de Relaciones con los ex alumnos de la Universidad de la Zon
del Canal esta compilando un studio de todos los estudiantes anterior
de esa universidad, a partir de la Clase de 1957. El prop6sito de este estudi
es poner al dia los archives, en lo que se refiere a lo que ha sucedido en
aspect educativo y de sus carreras, a los ex alumnos, desde que dejaron 1
Universidad de la Zona del Canal.
La Middle States Accrediting Association recomend6, ademis, que s
hiciera esta compilaci6n estadistica sobre los estudiantes. Esta informaci6
sera valiosisima tambihn, para desarrollar aiin mis el plan de studios d
la Universidad de la Zona del Canal y para los servicios de consejeria qu
se brinden a los estudiantes actuales y del future.
Se estin enviando ya los formularios de informaci6n y se solicita a lo
ex alumnos que los Ilenen y los devuelvan. Se les envia ademAs un formula
rio adicional, en la esperanza de que se lo envien a un companiero de clase
De esa manera sera possible volver a establecer comunicaci6n con la mayor
de los antiguos alumnos y graduados.
En muchos casos, estos formularios serAn enviados a la direcci6n de lo
padres, con quienes los estudiantes residian cuando asistian a la universidad
Se le solicita a los padres que envien todo ese material a sus hijos, de maner
que la universidad pueda comunicarse con ellos nuevamente.
La cooperaci6n de todos es esencial para poder confeccionar una lista d(
correos de los ex alumnos y realizar el present studio, declar6 Walte
Mikulich, president del Comite de Relaciones con los ex alumnos.

En Balboa Obra

Muy Aplaudida
El Club Dram4tico de la Escuela
Secundaria de Balboa ha escogido a
"Dino" como su obra de abril.
"Dino" es una obra modern y
se refiere a los problems de la ju-
ventud en los barrios bajos de las
grandes ciudades.
La obra fue escogida por el Club
Dramiltico de la Escuela Secundaria
de Balboa debido a las oportunida-
des que ofrece en papeles como el
de Dino, adolescent asesino, y
Shirley, la muchacha inteligente y
modest objeto de burla de sus com-
pafieros, y tambi6n debido al pro-
fundo vistazo que le da a los proble-
mas de un adolescent que se levanta
sin amor.
Jerry Faulconer, como Dino, y
Stella Tremblay, como Shirley, estin
a cargo de los papeles principles.
El Sr. Mandel, el psiquiatra, es re-
presentado por Jim Latimer, y
Jackie, la recepcionista de la casa de
beneficencia de Brooklyn, es inter-
pretada por Shirley Fontaine.
"Dino" sera puesta en escena en
el Auditorio de la Escuela Secundaria
de Balboa los dias 18, 19 y 20 de
abril, a las 8 p.m. Los boletos estAn
a la venta en la escuela secundaria o
