One of the largest bulk carriers to pass through the Canal laden is the "Rinda," a Norwegian flag super ship that
measures 848.6 feet in length and 105.9 feet in beam. She moves through Miraflores Locks southbound with a
cargo of coal for Japan. According to C. B. Fenton & Co., agents for the ship at the Canal, she will return north-
bound with a cargo of iron ore from Peru to Baltimore.

from Fort Amador, directed by CWO
Abraham K. Ignacio, is offering con-
certs throughout the weekend at the
fair grounds.
The Panama Canal has a slide pre-
sentation on the history of the Pan-
ama Canal and scenes throughout
Panama and the Canal Zone. There
are free rides for kiddies on the
burros, Mancha and Gato, a closed-
circuit television system on which
visitors are able to see themselves
as they enter the Panama Canal tent.
Completing the display is a photo-

Reserve Officers

Annual Convention

Set for April 29
The Canal Zone Department of
the Reserve Officers Association will
hold its annual convention Monday,
April 29, at the Quarry Heights Offi-
cers' Club. The purpose of the meet-
ing is to nominate and elect officers
for 1968-69 and to meet new friends
and renew old acquaintances.
The evening's activities will get
under way with a short business
meeting at 5:30. This will be fol-
lowed by a social hour beginning at
6 p.m. and a buffet dinner.
Members of the association are
asked to bring their ladies. Dress for
the evening will be business suits
for men and cocktail dresses for the
ladies. Invited guests also will be

country-style cooking at the many
food stands set up at the fairgrounds.
There also are samples of Panama-
nian handicraft available at several
of the exposition booths.

Although one lane at Gatun Locks
was closed by overhaul most of the
month, a total of 1,284 ships of 300
Panama Canal net tons or more were
put through the waterway during
March. This was the second highest
single month traffic total in history.
The record was achieved in July
1967, when there were 1,302 deep
water ships during a 31-day period.
The daily average in July 1967
was 42 ships as compared with 41.4
ships in March but there were high
level traffic marks during this last
month when the daily average was
44.5 ships. This occurred during the
last 14 days of the month.
In addition to lock overhaul and
heavy traffic, Canal operations were
suspended entirely February 25-26
for a 16-hour period when the Canal
channel at Gaillard Cut was blocked
by the sunken Shozan Maru. In order
to take care of the backlog created
by this incident, lock overhaul was
suspended for a few days and both
lanes at Catun were operated.
During this time a record number
of 65 oceangoing ships and two
smaller vessels were brought through
the Canal in a 24-hour period.
Another traffic build-up at the end

of March was relieved over the end
of the week of March 29 when both
lanes at Gatun were again opened to
traffic and a near record of 64 ships
transited in 1 day.
According to the present schedule,
the locks overhaul should come to
an end Saturday and the two lanes
at Catun will begin operation on a
normal schedule.
Heavy traffic was continuing
through the first part of April with
the first 2 weeks showing a daily
average of 40.9 ships. In addition to
the regular customers, there was a
large number of super bulk carriers
requiring clear-cut handling and
transit during daylight hours.
An average of 10 ships were given
"clear cut" preference each day
during the month of March, making
a total of 309 vessels given special
handling during the 31-day period.
Among the big customers during
March and April were such ships as
the Vitoria and Rinda, each.measur-
ing 848 feet in length and 105.9 feet
in beam; the San Juan Pioneer, with
a length of 835 feet and a beam of
106 feet, and the 800-foot long
Essi Gina.

Amish Groups Bound for New Life in Bolivia

Modern pioneers in search of the
promised land, might be a good
description of the Amish immigrants
who arrived in Panama by bus from
Mexico recently and left for Bolivia
aboard the Italian vessel Verdi.
Part of a colony of 10,000 or more
Amish settlers who have been living
for the past half century in Mexico,
the 163 men, women, and children
who boarded the ship in Cristobal
have decided to move on to new
More than five such groups
already have passed through Panama
and boarded Italian Line ships for
Arica, Chile, and more are expected
to come from Mexico. Their final
destination is Santa Cruz, Bolivia,
where their leaders have purchased
tracts of farm land.
Distinctive in their dress, the

i :

Amish men and boys wear overalls
and cowboy type of straw hat. The
women and little girls-even the
smallest-wear long skirts, shawls,
and white straw hats or scarves.
Possibly because of their long res-
idence in Mexico, the women have
brightened up the drab Mennonite
costmne so well known in some
parts of the United States. They
have added flowered or printed skirts
and ribbons on their hats. Their faces
are scrubbed and pink, however, and
their hair worn long and pulled back
from their faces. There were no
curlers or mini skirts.
Despite their years in a Spanish
speaking country, the travelers spoke
little Spanish and no English. They
still use Dutch, the language of their
ancestors, when speaking to each
other. Nearly all are blue-eyed and

blonde and they believe in large
families. One couple was traveling
with their 11 children.
In halting Spanish, the leader of
the group said they had been living
in the province of Chihuahua but
that Mexico was getting crowded.
They felt that they could have more
freedom and a chance to develop
more land in Bolivia. None of them
seem to mind that this meant leaving
their homes and going to a rugged
and underdeveloped country to spend
the rest of their lives.
Their choice of a new home
apparently is more promising that
would appear at first. According to a
recent article in the Miami Herald,
Santa Cruz is located in the central
plains of Bolivia on the eastern slopes
of the Andes mountains. It is known

be gained by using an "outside-type"
paint around windows inside the
SS Cristobal rather than the previ-

the SS Cristobal for suggesting that
preventive maintenance be expedited
aboard the SS Cristobal to correct
bathroom door lock deficiencies in
passengers' staterooms, and to Ralph
A. Morales of the Industrial Division
for suggesting a modification of the
Industrial Division's oxygen-acety-
lene tank cart caster wheel brackets.

How to check rising crime, and
how best to achieve the goal of
equal rights and responsibilities for
all citizens, are high priority prob-
lems for our nation.
Many Americans, perhaps most
of them, believe the answers lie in
more and better education for
everyone, improved housing, equal
employment opportunities, organ-
ized public and private efforts to
eliminate conditions that breed
crime and human misery.
All of these call for building a
better society, in physical terms and
in terms of mental attitudes that
will unite the country in achieving
solutions. Yet a relatively small
number seek "instant" cures, chal-
lenging the institutions and proc-
esses of government. They advocate
civil disobedience, organized pro-
tests in various forms. A few even
espouse and promote rioting and
The message of Law Day USA
this year reminds us that we cannot
build by destroying. We cannot
strengthen some freedoms by
weakening others. In our commu-
nities, and in the nation, we can
only advance through united action
within the framework of law.
It is a message to all Americans,
worth noting and remembering.

Job Outlined

Success of the program for issuance
of Certificates of Citizenship in the
Canal Zone was due in large part to
the assistance and facilities made
available by the Panama Canal orga-
This "credit line" is contained in
an article on the program which
appeared in the latest edition of the
I and N Reporter, a quarterly pub-
lication of the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service.
The 2/4-page illustrated article
suggests that "with a potential of
several thousand eligible applicants
who have not yet availed themselves
of the privilege of obtaining certifi-
cates of citizenship, it is anticipated
that the volume of cases will permit
(I&N) Service officers to be assigned
to the Zone several times each year."
So effective has initial review of
applications been in the Canal Zone,
the article noted, that only a few
had to be returned to the applicants
to correct deficiencies, and in many
instances documentation actually
exceeded requirements.
New applications received by the
end of April might be included in the
schedule for hearings tentatively
slated here late in May, it has been
Those who wish to file applications
may obtain application forms, infor-
mation, and assistance in the prepara-
tion of the forms from Mrs. Lois
Thomas in the Customs Division
office in the Terminal Building, Bal-
boa. Telephone: Balboa 4202. Office
hours are 7 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4
p.m., Monday through Friday.

application forms from the Cristobal

Largely of Dutch extraction, the

there were 160,000 in the United
States, 55,000 in Canada and 10,000
in Mexico.

Pioneros modernos en busca de la
tierra de promisi6n, podria ser la des-
cripci6n que les cae a los inmigrantes
menonitas que Ilegaron a PanamA en
autobfis, procedentes de Mixico, y
que partieron hacia Bolivia a bordo
del buque italiano Verdi.
Parte de una colonia de 10.000 o
mis colonizadores menonitas que han
estado viviendo en M6xico durante
el l6timo medio siglo, los 163 hom-
bres, mujeres y nifios, que abordaron
la nave en Crist6bal, han decidido
buscar nuevos horizontes.
Mas de cinco grupos parecidos han
pasado ya por PanamA y abordado
naves italianas que los levan a Arica,
Chile, y se espera que lleguen mas
desde M6xico. Su destine final es
Santa Cruz, Bolivia, donde sus lide-
res han comprado terrenos cultivables.
Con sus vestidos, sumamente dis-
tintivos, los hombres y niios meno-
nitas Ilevan pantalones de trabajo y
sombrero de paja estilo vaquero. Las
mujeres y las nifias-ain las mas pe-
quefias-usan faldas largas, mantones
y sombreros blancos de paja o chales.
Posiblemente debido a su larga re-
sidencia en Mexico, las mujeres le
han dado colorido a los vestidos me-
nonitas tan conocidos en ciertas par-
tes del mundo. Les han afiadido fal-
das floreadas y cintas a sus sombreros.
Sin embargo, sus caras son asperas
y rosadas y el largo cabello lo llevan
echado hacia atrs. No usan rizadores
ni minifaldas.
A pesar de los afios que han pasado
en un pais de habla espafiola, los via-
jeros hablan poco o nada de espafiol,
y nada de ingl6s. Cuando hablan
entire si, todavia usan el holandts, len-
guaje de sus antepasados. Casi todos
tienen ojos azules, cabello rubio y
screen en families numerosas. Una de
las parejas viajaba con sus 11 hijos.
En un pobre espafiol, el jefe del
grupo dijo que habian vivido en el
Estado de Chihuahua, pero que
Mexico se estaba volviendo demasia-
do poblado. Se dieron cuenta de que
podrian tener mayor libertad y cul-
tivar mhs tierras en Bolivia. No pare-
cia importarle a ninguno de ellos el
dejar sus hogares e ir a un lugar
nuevo y desconocido para pasar el
resto de sus vidas.
Pero su escogimiento de una nue-

va patria es aparentemente much
mas promisorio de lo que podria pa-
recer a primera vista. De acuerdo
con un reciente articulo del Miami
Herald, Santa Cruz esta situada en
las planicies centrales de Bolivia en
las estribaciones orientales de Los
Andes. Se reconoce esa region como
excelente para ganaderia y que esta
prosperando enorme y rlpidamente
debido a que hace unos aios se
encontr6 petr6leo.
De ascendencia holandesa en gran
parte, los menonitas se establecieron
por primera vez en Pensilvania, en
1683, huy6ndole a la persecusi6n en
Europa. Para fines del decenio de
1950 a 1960 habia 160.000 de ellos
en los Estados Unidos, 55.000 en el
CanadA y 10.000 en Mexico.

Puerto Armuelles y Almirante

Son de Reciente Fundaci6n

El gran historiador panamefio

teresante en su libro iCuindo Fue-
ron Fundados los Pueblos y Ciuda-
des del Istmo de PanamA?, sobre la
fundaci6n de Almirante y Puerto
Textualmente dice asi: "La pobla-
ci6n de Almirante fue fundada en
1910 por la Compafia Frutera en la
bahia de ese mismo nombre, sobre
terrenos pantanosos, rellenados pre-
viamente. Es una ciudad modern,
dotada de acueducto, plant electri-
ca, oficinas y hospitals. Dispone de
un espacioso muelle de concrete que
permit el atraque a buques de alto
bordo en los que se exportan los ba-
nanos, abacA, cacao y demAs produc-
tos que cultiva la compafiia.
"Como la Compafiia Frutera so vio
forzada a abandonar sus plantaciones
de bananos en Bocas del Toro a causa
de la plaga de sigatoka que arrui-
naba los cultivos, pas6 a desarrollar
sus plantaciones en el Distrito de
Alanje en la zona limitrofe con Costa
Rica. Asi se form Puerto Armuelles,
ciudad modern, con todos los servi-
cios y adelantos con que pucdc do-
tarla una companiia tan rica como lo
cs la Compailia Frutera.

"El territorio en Alan e, se organi-
z6 politicamente y se denomin6 Co-
marca del Bari, que hoy ha pasado a
la categoria de Distrito del Bari, con
cabecera en Puerto Armuelles, nom-
bre que leva esta ciudad en honor
al Capitin Tomrs Armuelles, vale-
roso military de la Guerra de Coto,

liam L. Humphrey, Comandante de

tico, quien fue elegido por unani-
Lo integran el Capitin Axton T.

la Escuela de las Amiricas de Fuerte
El pasado lunes, 15 de abril, el
consejo celebr6 su sesi6n regular a
la cual fueron invitados various miem-
bros de la prensa de Col6n.
En primer lugar se hablo de la
necesidad de que las comunidades
que son beneficiadas con la creaci6n
de los diferentes proyectos se encar-
guen de cuidarlos y mantenerlos. Se
trajo a colaci6n el caso especifico del
parque infantil construido en el sec-
tor de Calle 14 y Avenida Bolivar
en la ciudad de Col6n, que estA bas-
tante deteriorado. En ese moment
el Alcalde del Distrito, don Adriano
Tufi6n, hizo la sugerencia de que su
despacho pondria todo lo necesario
para la conservaci6n de ese y otros
parques infantiles que tiene en pro-
yecto la entidad.
Pero el punto principal que se tra-
t6 fue el informed sobre el proyecto
de comedor escolar para los nifios de
Rio Indio, pequefia comunidad de la

Provincia de Col6n, que'estA siendo
terminado en estos dias.
La idea naci6, cuando el 89 Grupo
de Fuerzas Especiales le llev6 rega-
los y golosinas de Navidad a los ni-
iios de la escuela de ese lugar. Un
grupo de moradores les dijo que ellos
preferirian que se les dotara mejor
de un lugar donde sus hijos pudieran
comer cuando asistieran a la escuela.
Y asi naci6 el proyecto, que fue Ile-
vado a discusi6n en el seno del Con-
sejo de Relaciones. Este lo prohij6
y el Municipio de Col6n suministr6
el cement necesario, el Canal de
PanamA proporcion6 la madera, el
8" Grupo la asesoria tecnica, la CARE
suministrarA los alimentos, el Club
de Leones pagarA el salario de la per-
sona que los cocaine y la comunidad
de Rio Indio ha suministrado la mano
de obra en la construcci6n del edifi-
cio que esta ya siendo terminado.
Ya el Consejo de Relaciones ha
terminado otro comedor escolar en
Ciricito y tiene diferentes proyectos
en el tapete. Serin la labor de hom-
bres muy ocupados que siempre to-
man unos minutes libres para ayudar
a sus semejantes.
