Remember Those

Travel Vouchers

Home leave time is coming around
again for most of us and here are a
few pointers for travelers.
Any employee traveling on home
leave, recruitment, repatriation, or
official duty travel orders must sub-
mit a travel voucher within 30 days
after completion of travel. The same
rule applies to the sponsor of students
traveling on educational travel orders.
Travel vouchers must be submitted
to the Claims Branch within 30 days
after return to the Isthmus. Be sure
to read the instructions given out by
Transportation Branch prior to travel.
Most people cringe at the thought
of having to compute their per diem
on a travel voucher. Forget it. The
Claims Branch will compute what-
ever is authorized and add it to your
voucher. All you need do is be sure
to state your mode of travel, giving

the dates and times of arrival, and
departure along the way and inci-
dental expenses incurred.
When transportation is furnished,
such as rail or airline tickets, or the
traveler obtains such transportation
himself by use of a Government
Transportation Request, he is respon-
sible for the return of any portion of
such tickets which are not used. iHe
also is responsible for detailing any
changes which may have been made
on his tickets or any other changes in
his transportation.
For example, if the travel order
covers round trip transportation for
a child who remains in the States to
go to school, the original travel
voucher should state this fact and a
subsequent voucher should be sub-
mitted when the child finally does

R. L. Seeley Named

To Appeals Board

Ronald L. Seeley, the Canal's chief
of the Employment-Management
Relations Staff, has been appointed
a member of the Canal Zone Board
of Appeals by Secretary of the Army
Stanley R. Resor.
Named as alternate member of the
board was Gary P. Dunsmoor, Chief
of the Professional and U.S. Recruit-
ment Section.
Seeley, formerly an alternate him-
self, succeeds Gordon M. Frick,
Deputy Personnel Director (Opera-
tions), who is retiring from the board.
Frick's work as a board member was
commended recently by Ellsworth
Wolfsperger, Chief, International Di-
vision, Office of the Deputy Chief of
Staff for Personnel, Department of
the Army.
In a letter to Gov. W. P. Leber,
Wolfsperger said in part: "The en-
viable reputation the board has
earned among the Canal Zone agen-
cies and their employees is attribu-
table in no small way to the high
degree of objectivity and good judg-
ment which Mr. Frick demonstrated
during his service as a member of
the board since its inauguration in
1959. Mr. Frick is to be commended
for his invaluable contribution."
Seeley, who will continue in his
present capacity besides serving on
the board, was born in Panama and
attended Canal Zone schools. He
holds a bachelor's degree in business
administration from the University of
Denver and a master's degree in
public administration from the Uni-
versity of Pittsburgh. In addition, he
served a 5-month management intern-
ship with the U.S. Civil Service
Commission in Washington.
He joined the Panama Canal orga-

The whole family is in the swim.
Mr. and Mrs. David Beldus of
Gamboa and their two daughters
have nearly 900 miles of recorded
swimming miles to their credit-all
of it obtained in the Canal Zone since
February 1965.
Seven hundred of the swimming
miles is credited to Mr. Beldus, a
former National Park Service ranger
and guide and presently a teacher
at the Curundu Junior High School.
Mrs. Beldus has completed 100 rec-
orded swimming miles in the Canal
Zone and Susan Beldus, nearly 8,
completed her first Red Cross 50
miles April 21.
Sister Karen, who is just 6 years
old, is working toward her first 50-
mile Red Cross swimming badge.
All four of the Beldus family take
to the water often but the girls win
trophies too. Susan holds three Canal
Zone swimming records, all set on
the same day. They are the 25-yard
free style, the 25-yard backstroke,
and the 25-yard breast stroke. Karen
is coming along fine also. She holds
the Canal Zone 25-yard backstroke
fo: age group 6 and under.
The' little girls come by their
athletic ability quite naturally. They
have to be on the go to keep up with
father who has hiked from Fort
Amador Causeway to Pier 8 in Cris-
tobal and has walked from El Valle
to Salud on the Atlantic coast. On
this trip, he was accompanied by
Dr. Kenneth Lake.
Beldus accompanied the Indian
swimmer Mihir Sen on the first 12

Shriners To Observe

Hospital Day Sunday

Sunday has been designated Shrine
Hospital Day. It will mark the 46th
anniversary of the first Shriners Hos-
pital for Crippled Children, set up
by the Ancient Arabic Order of the
Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
Since the first Shriners Iospital
was opened in 1922, more than
152,000 children have been cured or
materially helped in the 19 ortho-
pedic units and three recently opened
Burns Institutes. The hospitals, scat-
tered across United States, Canada,
and Mexico, are open to all children
under 15 years of age, regardless of
race or religion, whose parents are
unable to pay for medical attention
to serious burns or orthopedic prob-
lems of the children.
According to Thomas F. Scay,
Imperial Potentate of the Shrine,
some 2 million Americans are acci-
dentally burned each year. Approxi-
mately 70,000 of these require hos-
pital treatment and 12,000 eventually

die. Of the latter group, 50 percent
are children under 16 years old.
Any Shriner can recommend a
child. Abou Saad Temple, which in-
eludes Panama, the Canal Zone,
Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands,
this year has sent 11 children to
Shriners Hospitals in the United
States. Of this total 10 were from
the Republic of Panama; one was
from the Canal Zone.
These 11 were the first of a group
examined at Gorgas Hospital the past
December. As the children are
accepted at Shriners Hospitals, their
travel expenses are covered by Abou
Saad Temple and the cost of their
treatment is paid by the Ancient
Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic
Shrine of North America.
Funds to support the hospitals
come from Shrine-sponsored football
games, Shrine circuses, wills, be-
quests, and gifts from both Shriners
and the public.

this effort, he decided his personal
goal was to become the first person

In addition to being a housewife
and a mother, Nancy Beldus is active

Brownie troop No. 23 of Gamboa and

Benefit Show

Termed Success
The 18th annual closing program
of the Dorothy Chase Studio of
Dance, held last week for the benefit
of the Canal Zone Special Education
Association, was highly successful.
Mrs. Chase said contributions
totaled more than $950, $200 more
than last year.
Mrs. Chase attributed the success
to the enthusiastic support by the
students, mothers, stage hands, and
everyone who had anything to do
with the program. She expressed her
personal thanks and those of the
Special Education Association to all
to played a part.

Citizenship Hearings Postponed

Citizenship hearings tentatively
scheduled for the end of May in the
Canal Zone have been postponed
until September because of the small
number of applications received from
residents of the Isthmus, it was
announced by Bruce C. Sanders, Jr.,
Chief of the Customs Division.
The number of applications for
citizenship certificates turned in by
the end of April were not sufficient
to warrant the return to the Canal
Zone this month of the examiners
for the Immigration and Naturaliza-
tion Service, Sanders said.
Those interested in obtaining this
valuable document through the local

Program should make their applica-
tions as soon as possible so that
arrangements can be made for the
examiners to come to the Canal Zone
in September.
Information and assistance in the
preparation of the forms may be ob-
tained by telephone from Mrs. Lois
Thomas who staffs the Pacific side
office in the Customs Division in the
Terminal Building, Balboa. Her tele-
phone is Balboa 4202 and office
hours are 7 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4
p.m., Monday through Friday.
Atlantic side residents may obtain
application forms from the Cristobal

Certificate of Citizenship Assistance Customs office.

Centro de Poblaciones

La poblaci6n de Macaracas, situa-
da en la Provincia de Los Santos, no
aparecia en el recuento de las pobla-
ciones existentes en el afio de 1790
lo que caus6 extrafieza a un maestro
rural, quien inform que segin la
tradici6n lugarefia se sabe que sola-
mente existi6, en los l6timos dias de
la colonia, la Ermita de Macaracas,
en un lugar denominado Los Leales,
al norte de la poblaci6n actual y sobre
el Rio EstibanA, dice el gran histo-
riador panamefio Rub6n D. Carries en
su libro "CuAndo Fucron Fundados
los Pueblos y Ciudades del Istmo de
Mas tarde, dice Caries, la pobla-
ci6n que se form alrededor de la
Ermita fue trasladada al sitio que ac-
tualmente ocupa Macaracas la que
en 1848 ya era reconocida como Dis-

trito Parroquial del Cant6n de Parita.
Es de observer que al igual que lo
acontecido en Macaracas, en Rio de
JesAs y en David, el establecimiento
de una capilla-ermita-para el culto
religioso, dio origen a la formaci6n
de pueblos y ciudades.
Carries, al referirse a la Ermita de
David, hace menci6n del studio que
hizo el Dr. Eusebio A. Morales sobre
Ia Provincia de Chiriqui, quien dice
que en documents que ley6 con fe-
chas hasta de 1738 aparece mencio-
nada la Ermita de San Josd de David.
Esto lo corrobora la Srta. Carmelita
Callegos Femenias, quien enterada
de las tradiciones de la ciudad, afir-
ma "que a la pequefia capillita, que
habia antes de la construcci6n de la
iglesia de San Josd, le lamaban

El Club Unidn Ha Sido Espejo

De la Vida Social de Panama

El primer centro social de Pana-
mi, el Club Uni6n, pronto se mudara
a un nuevo edificio que se esta cons-
truyendo en la bellisima urbaniza-
ci6n de Punta Paitilla.
El nuevo edificio del Club Uni6n
serA una estructura sumamente fun-
cional para instalaciones de esta
clase y tendri innovaciones tales
como caidas de agua artificiales y su
propia playa privada. Los arquitec-
tos que disefiaron el nuevo edificio
son los muy conocidos Ernesto de la
Guardia III y George Moreno.
La vida social de la capital de la
Repfiblica de Panamn ha estado liga-
da al Club Uni6n desde que 6ste
comenz6 en 1912 y aiin antes, cuan-
do no se Ilamaba asi, sino Club Inter-
nacional, y funcionaba en la Calle
5a en el casco viejo de la ciudad.
En 1912, se form el Club Uni6n
y su primer president fue don
Eduardo Icaza. En un bello edificio,
estilo colonial, situado en la Avenida
Norte de aquel entonces, actualmen-
te Avenida Eloy Alfaro, a orillas del
mar, y propiedad del president del
Club Uni6n, funcion6 el gran centro
social hasta 1917, cuando se termin6
el edificio done funciona actual-
Los Carnavales y el Club Uni6n
La historic del Carnaval de Pana-
mai y ]a del Club Uni6n han estado
vinculadas estrechamente, desde el
afio de 1910, cuando un decreto del
Alcalde de la ciudad de Panami, don
Jos6 Agustin Arango, le dio caricter
official a esas fiestas por primer vez.
En el program official se sefialaba la
proclamaci6n official de la Reina del
Carnaval en el Club Internacional, y
result ser la Srta. Manuelita Valla-
rino, S. M. Manuelita I. Posterior-
mente, la Srta. Vallarino se cas6 con
don Frank Morrice, y hasta el dia
de su muerte, goz6 de fama de ser
una de las mujeres mis bellas de
De ese Carnaval de 1910, se des-
prenden algunos datos interesantes,
que aparecieron publicados en The
Star & Herald, el 8 de febrero de
ese afo, Martes de Carnaval, y dia
principal de esas festividades. Dice
el mencionado peri6dico que el Dios
Momo, quien preside las fiestas de
Carnaval, fue recibido en la mafiana
del domingo de Carnaval en la
Estaci6n del Ferrocarril.
Momo fue un dios de la mitologia
griega que fue expulsado del Olimpo,
por su costumbre de burlarse de los
demis dioses, pero a quien se le dio
el derecho de presidir las fiestas de

los 4 filtimos dias antes de la
Dice The Star & Herald, que
Momo, field a su costumbre, apenas
lleg6 a la ciudad el domingo de Car-
naval, se fue de parranda y se cmbo-
rrach6 hasta el extreme que fue
arrestado, pero que el martes por la
maiana se le dio libertad bajo fianza
para que las fiestas pudieran con-
Esc aio, en el Parque de Santa
Ana, fue elegido por unanimidad
como el Rey Feo de los Carnavales,
el Sr. Agustin Salom6n. Alli tambi6n
se enterr6 el Carnaval, en la noche
del dia martes. La narraci6n del pe-
ri6dico dice que hubo bailes popula-
res, desfiles de carros alcg6ricos y
alegria enorme en toda la ciudad,
pero el centro de la alegria estuvo
en el Club Internacional donde estaba
la Sede de la Reina.
Durante muchos afios, la Reina del
Carnaval del Club Uni6n fue tam-
bien Reina de los Carnavales Oficia-
les de la ciudad los cuales constituian
derroche de lujo y alegria.
Lo han Visitado Muchas
El Club Uni6n, ha sido siempre
uno de los lugares a donde han lle-
gado las grandes personalidades que
continuamente visitan la ciudad de
Panama. Alli han estado reyes, como
Eduardo VII e Isabel II de Ingla-
terra y el Duque de Edimburgo;
miembros de la nobleza europea,
como Fernando de Baviera, Infante
de Espafia y Don Crist6bal Col6n,
Duque de Veragua; alli han pasado
ratos agradables politicos y estadistas
de renombre international como Dag
Hammarskjold y Warren G. Harding;
personalidades mundiales como el
Coronel Charles A. Lindberg; artis-
tas de renombre en el teatro y el
cine, como John Barrymore y su
esposa Dolores Costello, Will Rogers,
Irene Dunn, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.,
Fredric March y los hermanos Ritz;
el gran dramaturge espaflol Jacinto
Benavente y el padre de la fisica
contemporAnea Albert Einstein.
Los Presidentes de las Repslblicas
Americanas, incluyendo al Presidente
Dwight D. Eisenhower, de los Esta-
dos Unidos, fueron agasajados en una
recepci6n llevada a cabo en el Club
Uni6n cuando en julio de 1956 se
reunieron en la ciudad de PanamA.
Organizaci6n Intema
Desde su fundaci6n, se ha exigido
a los miembros del Club Uni6n que
compren, por lo menos una acci6n,
cuyo valor es de $200. En ciertas

.ocasiones, como al present, debido
a la construcci6n del nuevo edificio,
las acciones suben de valor. Actual-
mente los nuevos socios deben pagar
una acci6n, cuyo valor es de $1.500,
para ser admitidos. La compra de
esta acci6n es obligatoria para todos
los socios que ya pertenecen al club,
pero se les dan facilidades para que
la puedan adquirir. Hay tres classes
de socios: los socios regulars, que
se denominan accionistas; socios ho-
norarios, que son los accionistas que
tienen 20 afios de pagar sus cuotas
y Ilegan a la edad de 60 aiios; y los
socios numerarios, diplomAticos y
miembros del ejercito de Estados
Unidos, que pagan una cuota inicial
de $50 y cuotas mensuales especia-
les. Ultimamente se ha creado una

Este edificio, perteneciente a don Eduardo Icaza, situado a orillas del mar,
muy cerca de la Presidencia de la Repiblica, fue la primer sede del Club
Uni6n de PanamA. El Club funcion6 en ese edificio de 1912 a 1917.

con varias piscinas, amplias terrazas para baile y paseos,
caidas de agua artificiales y una playa privada. El edificio
ha sido disefiado por los arquitectos Emesto de la Guar-
dia III y George Moreno, de la ciudad de PanamA.

Para pertenecer al Club Uni6n no

cuanto a raza, nacionalidad, religion
o de otra naturaleza. S61o se exige
que la persona interesada sea pre-

El Domingo 19 es el Dia

Del Hospital
El domingo ha sido designado Dia
del Hospital del Templo. MarcarA el
aniversario 46 de la fundaci6n del
primer Hospital para Nifios Lisiados
de la Antigua Orden ArAbica de los
Nobles del Templo Mistico.
Desde que se abri6 el primer Hos-
pital del Templo en 1922, mas de
152.000 nifios han sido curados o
ayudados materialmente en las 19
unidades ortop6dicas y los reciente-
mente establecidos Institutos para
Quemaduras. Los hospitals, estable-
cidos en todo Estados Unidos, el
CanadA y M6xico, estin abiertos para
todos los niios de menos de 15 afios

De acuerdo con Thomas F. Seay,
Potentado Imperial del Templo, unos
2 millones de ciudadanos estado-
unidenses se queman accidentalmente
cada afio. Aproximadamente 70.000
requieren tratamiento en un hospital
y 12.000 eventualmente mueren. De
este iltimo grupo, 50 por ciento son
nifios de menos de 16 aflos.
Cualquier miembro del Templo
puede recomendar un nino. El Tem-
plo Abou Saad, que incluye a Pana-
mai, la Zona del Canal, Puerto Rico
y las Islas Virgenes, ha enviado este
afio 11 nifios a Hospitales del Templo
en los Estados Unidos. De este total,
10 fueron de la Repiiblica de Pana-
ma y uno de la Zona del Canal.
Estos 11 integraban el primer
grupo que fue examinado en el Hos-
pital Gorgas el pasado diciembre. Al
ser aceptados los nifios en los Hos-
pitales del Templo, sus gastos de
viaje son cubiertos por el Templo
Abou Saad y el costo del tratamiento
corre por cuenta de la Antigua Orden
Arabica de los Nobles del Templo
Mistico de Norte Amlnrica.
Los fondos para estos hospitals
provienen de juegos de futbol patro-
cinados por la orden, de los circos
que posee el Templo, de legados,
herencias y de donaciones, tanto de
miembros de la orden como del
piiblico en general.
