Former C.Z. Resident

Is Cited for Heroism

Sfc. Bill Bright, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Carmen Bright of Bethania
Heights, Panama, and a former res-
ident of the Canal Zone and Panama,
has been cited for heroism in action
in Vietnam, according to news
received on the Isthmus.
Sergeant Bright, who already had
been awarded the commendation
medal with oak leaf cluster and the
air medal with several clusters, re-
cently was awarded the bronze star
medal with valor clasp for heroism in
connection with military operations
against a hostile force.
The citation reads: "Sergeant First
Class Bill Bright distinguished him-
self while serving as platoon sergeant
of an aerial scout platoon involved in
a screening mission around a North
Vietnamese ambush site. The wing
helicopter received heavy enemy fire
and crashed.
"Sfc. Bright volunteered to be
landed close to the fortified enemy
positions to render assistance to an
unconscious pinned crew member.
He administered lifesaving first aid
and prepared the wounded crew
member for a hasty medical evacua-

tion. He then skillfully coordinated
with the medical evacuation heli-
copter by using hand signals and
guided the hovering aircraft into
position for the evacuation.
"He continued to provide local
security single handedly for the
downed helicopter until an infantry
platoon was air lifted to the site. As
a result, the downed helicopter and
its crew were evacuated without loss
of life, and Sfc. Bright was rejoined
with his crew to continue the mission,
which resulted in the routing of the
enemy force.
"His actions were in keeping with
the highest traditions of the military
service and reflect great credit upon
himself, his unit and the U.S. Army."
Sergeant Bright attended Balboa
High School in the Canal Zone where
he was an outstanding member of the
ROTC. He is married to the former
Rosemary Murphy of Louisville, Ky.,
who is residing in that city with their
four children.

Bright has been in Southeast Asia
since October 1967 and is assigned to

Mysteries of the Schools Division Data Process- are explained to Grade 6 pupils of Cocoli Elementary
ing Center at the Panama Canal's Civil Affairs Building School.

Students Introduced

To Schools' Computer

Gone are the days when Johnny
and Susie brought an apple to school
for teacher. With the day of the
"computer tutor" not far away, the
Johnnys and Susies just entering
school may be confronted with the
problem of just what one does bring
teacher when teacher is a machine.
The computer's place in the Canal
Zone Division of Schools was recently
explained to the boys and girls of
Grade 6, Cocoli Elementary School,
during a field trip with their teacher,
Kenneth Praxel, to the School Divi-
sion's Data Processing Center at the
Civil Affairs Building.
Robert F. Dahlstrom, coordinator,
educational data processing, explained
the various phases of the educational
program in relationship to the overall
pupil accounting operation. Each
visiting pupil was given a punched
card and, when processed by an
interpreter, the machine translated
its coded language into recognizable
symbols including name, school, and
room number.
The importance of accuracy was
stressed, and the children watched
with amazement as erroneous cards
were rejected to demonstrate the
editing capabilities of the various
Tests that would have required
more than a day's work to correct
and score by hand were corrected
by the computer in a matter of
minutes with an impressive display
of metallic clicking and blinking
Dahlstrom stated that computer
assisted instruction (C.A.I.) in New
York City is involving isoe 6,000
children in grades 1 to 6. This full-
scale operational system, designed to
teach large groups of students simul-
taneously and individually, is for
assistance in drill and practice exer-
cises in reading, writing, and arith-
metic. The computer will make
possible automatic selection of. drill
and review materials assigned to each
individual student's learning rate and
capacity, and a continuous adjust-
ment of difficulty in the level of his
drill performance.
In a demonstration last month in
Public School 244 in Brooklyn, N.Y.,
Dahlstrom said, third graders sat
face-to-face with the computer ter-
minals for the first time. Using the
hunt-and-peck system, each typed his
special number and his first name,
and then sat stunned as the terminal,

linked to an RCA computer at
Stanford University at Palo Alto,
Calif., responded with his last name
and the instructions: "Add or sub-
stract-watch the signs."
Dahlstrom and Mrs. Theresa F.
Moore, Supervisor of Instruction,
U.S. Elementary Schools, recently
attended a conference of State Super-
visors of Mathematics on Computers
and Mathematics Instruction in
Denver, Colo. There they had a ter-
minal linked to the same computer
at Stanford University for the ele-
mentary mathematics project of Dr.
Patrick Suppes, one of the eminent
guest speakers at the conference.
As a result of the conclusions drawn
from the conference, a course in
computer mathematics will be offered
at Balboa High School during the
coming school year. Students who re-
ceived a "C" or better in Algebra II
will be considered for this special
after school class. Actual laboratory
experience on the Schools Division
IBM 1130 computer will be part of
the course.

It was supposed to be a happy Flo-
rida holiday for two Chicagoans.
But a Dade County deputy sheriff
found them in their camper at the
edge of the Everglades, dead from
apparent asphyxiation because a gas-
light fixture in the camper used up
all the available oxygen.
Sheriff's police reported that the
gaslight fixture itself seemed in good
working order. But the victims,
apparently attempting to obtain less
heat and more light from the fixture,
put a piece of aluminum foil above
the lantern's gas mantle and blocked
off a lantern vent with asbestos.

The Panama Roadrunners are on

For the first time since the Inter-
American Highway through Central
America opened to traffic, a group of
Panama Canal employees and their
families are traveling north as a
Most of them are old hands at
camping out in their camper trucks
or motor homes and several have
made the trip either north or south.
But this is the first time that the
members of the Roadrunners Club
have traveled the road north as a
After weeks of preparation, eight
families gathered at the Diablo Serv-
ice Center the day school closed and
started shortly after dinner for the
Costa Rican border. They expected
to reach San Josc, Costa Rica, the
second day and the United States in
about 15 days.
Most members of the group plan-
ned to stay together as far as Mexico
where they were to lose one or two
of the members. The rest would enter
the United States by the Texas border
and visit the Hemisfair in San Anto-
nio before going their separate ways
to various parts of the United States.
The Panama Roadrunners was
organized about a year ago among
a number of local residents who had
purchased camper trucks or mobile
homes. They held regular meetings
to exchange ideas and experiences
and soon the original five had grown
to 25 families. The meetings were
never dull. Most of them took place
on camping trips to various parts of
Panama and the Canal Zone where

a long drive.
Camping out is a natural for tlhe

Dr. B. K. Levin, Quarantine Offi-
cer In Charge, Cristobal, attended
the 58th annual meeting of the Na-
tional Council, Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica, in Chicago, Ill., as representative
of the Canal Zone Council and
helped work out local applications
of the expansion plan known as
"Boypower 76."
This year's annual meeting of the
nation's largest youth organization,
the 6-million member Boy Scouts of
America, adopted this dynamic new,
long-range expansion plan which has,
as an important objective, the expan-
sion of service to disadvantaged boys
in the inner-city and low opportunity
rural areas.
"Boypower 76" calls for a con-
siderable increase in membership, a
program of financial support to local
councils, and is directed toward
making Scouting more relevant to the
needs of boys of all races, creeds,
and economic status.

One of the duties of an adminis-

loss to know what to write concern-

the following:
"Gentlemen: When you come to
know this employee as we know him,
you will come to appreciate him as
we appreciate him."

James Bond has been gone from

But now a well-known English

Keep Purses

Off Car Seat
CAR," advises Chief E. S. Shipley
of the Canal Zone Police Division.
His words'were repeated in capital
letters and italics.
The warning is not new. The
reason Chief Shipley is repeating it
again is that the Canal Zone police
have received innumerable reports
of purse snatching, especially when
a motorist has rolled down a car
window to purchase a newspaper.
Once again, Chief Shipley advises
motorists to keep their car doors
locked and to keep handbags and any
other items of any value off the car
Having the exact change ready,
when stopping to purchase a news-
paper, and keeping handbag or wallet
out of sight would be one way of
outwitting a hoodlum purse snatcher,

Is Ordained
Brian M. Cox, a former resident of

St. Joseph on June 1, will arrive on
the Isthmus for a visit Sunday. He
was ordained by his Excellency Car-

John Kenneth Galbraith is a pro-
fessor of economics who has served
in various Government capacities.
Chiefly known for his books such as
"The Affluent Society," he has now
written a novel, The Triumph, which
is about the State Department and
the political scene. It's an interest-
ing sidelight on Washington by one
who has been there.
How To Plan and Plant Your Own
Property by Alice Rechnagel Ireys is
said to be the first book on landscape
design to give detailed working plans
along with photographs that show
how the plans actually worked out.
Although written for temperate
climates, the book contains much for
any homeowner to study. The
photographs alone make this book
worth your while.
James A. Michener who achieved
fame with his "Tales of the South
Pacific" has been a visitor to Spain
many times in the last 35 years. Now
he has written a book about the
country which he considers his
second home. Iberia is not a novel
although it is filled with many inter-
esting characters, not a history
although Michener gives some sharp
insights into Spain's past, and it's not
just another travel book. Readers
will find it evocative and fascinating
and the many photographs tell a
story of their own.

Prep Course

Is Offered


The USO-JWB is again offering
a special course designed to aid
servicemen, students, and other
members of the community in prepar-
ing for the College Entrance Exam-
inations and the Federal Service

Passman has a master's degree in
English and has had considerable
experience in this type of instruction.
This course prepares high school
students and servicemen who are
contemplating college entrance in
September of 1968 and 1969. Per-
sons preparing for the Federal Serv-
ice Entrance Exam have also found
this course extremely beneficial.
Emphasis will be given to an in-
depth study of the Verbal Skills Sec-
tion of the Scholastic Aptitude Test
and the FSEE. In addition, attention
will be given to the Matheatical
Skills Section of the SAT and the
FSEE, the various Achievement
Tests, and the English Composition

Cuidese de los Cruces de Tren

La impaciencia puede tener malas
A veces uno se impacienta porque
se le hace tarde y para compensar
por la demora, se arriesga olvidin-
dose de tomar las precauciones
Veamos lo que le pas6 a un impa-
ciente. Se trata de un ingeniero que
se habia quedado en su oficina unos
minutes mAs que de costumbre
cuando de sibito se acord6 que le
habia prometido a su esposa llegar
temprano porque ella esperaba invi-
tados. Sali6 precipitadamente condu-
ciendo su autom6vil a la mayor velo-
cidad que le permitieran los regla-
mentos de transito.
No tuvo dificultades hasta que en-
contr6 una luz roja en un cruce de
ferrocarril sin barreras protectoras.
Habia un autom6vil estacionado y 61
se coloc6 detris. A una distancia de
unos 45 metros se veia un tren dete-
nido. Pasaron unos minutes sin que
cambiara la situaci6n, lo que impa-

cient6 mis al ingeniero. Sin pensarlo
mas, decidi6 pasar al autom6vil que
tenia delante y cruzar la via. En el
moment que empezaba a cruzar, se
horroriz6 al ver que otro tren se
aproximaba rhpidamente por la via
en direcci6n contraria. Aceler6 lo
mAs que pudo y el hecho de que
saliera con vida no bast6 para cal-
marlo durante la semana siguiente.
El ingeniero aprendi6 la lecci6n y
ahora es el primero en recomendarle
a los demas que mientras mis impa-
ciente est6 uno, debe seguir mas
atentamente las reglas de precauci6n
aplicables al caso . Y esto ha
sucedido, y puede suceder, en la
Zona del Canal donde hay various
cruces de ferrocarril. Por eso tenga
paciencia y precauci6n.

El Canal de Panama Adiestra a

Tecnico Panameno del SENAPI

Pedro Medina, encargado del labo-
ratorio de fotografia del Servicio
National de Artesania y Pequefias
Industries de Chitrc (SENAPI), pro-
yecto patrocinado por el Gobierno de
PanamA conjuntamente con las Na-
ciones Unidas, complete la semana
pasada un adiestramiento en labora-
torio de fotografia, en el Ramo de
Artes GrAficas del Canal de PanamA,
con el fin de perfeccionar sus conoci-
mientos en el revelado y adquirir
nuevas tkcnicas en el uso de nuevas
Fue una semana de adiestramiento
continue, en el que todos los emplea-
dos del Ramo de Artes GrAficas del
Canal de Panama pusieron todo su
empeilo y conocimientos y Medina
todo su interns e inteligencia para
aprovechar en un ciento por ciento
los procedimientos del revelado y
la fotografia, que le serviran tambi6n
como preparaci6n para la producci6n
de peliculas propias sobre el trabajo
del SENAPI, que se planean proyec-



tar con una unidad m6vil en las Areas
Recientemente el Sr. Malcolm
Benjamin, expert en disefio de las
Naciones Unidas para el proyecto
SENAPI de la ciudad de Chitr6, so-
licit6 la cooperaci6n de la empresa
del Canal por intennedio del Sr.
Frank A. Baldwin para hacer possible
el adiestramiento de un miembro del
mencionado institute en el Ramo de
Artes Grificas del Canal de Panama,
hecho que se cristaliz6 por las gestio-
nes del Jefe de Informaci6n del
Canal de PanamA, Sr. Baldwin, y por
el prop6sito de la empresa del Canal
de ayudar en lo mis possible al desa-
rrollo t6cnico e industrial de Panama,
como lo ha hecho en repetidas
"El prop6sito", dice Benjamin, "es
el de brindarle una experiencia tec-
nica que se verA reflejada en la cali-
dad de nuestros tecnicos y nuestro
Pedro Medina, nacido en Guarar6

En la secci6n de tanques de revelado y lavado de fotografias, del Ramo de
Artes Grificas del Canal de PanamA, y bajo la mirada de Fitzgerald A.
Barnes, a la derecha, t6cnico. panamefio de laboratorio a cargo de la secci6n,
Pedro Medina, expert del SENAPI de Chitrb, Rep6blica de PanamA, experi-
menta los mejores procedimientos en esta important fase de las artes grAfi-
cas. Los jefes del Ramo de Artes Graficas del Canal de Panama brindaron
su cooperaci6n en el adiestramiento de Medina en todo moment. Este
proyecto, de colaboraci6n del Canal de PanamA hacia el SENAPI, instituci6n
patrocinada conjuntamente por el Ministerio de Agricultura Comercio e
Industries de PanamA y las Naciones Unidas, result de una petici6n hecha
por Malcolm Benjamin, expert estadounidense de las Naciones Unidas
adscrito al SENAPI, al Director de Informaci6n del Canal de Panama, Frank
A. Baldwin. Medina estuvo acompafiado, durante la semana que dur6 su
adiestramiento en el Canal, por Alberto Acevedo, fot6grafo official del
Canal de Panama.

El Edificio de Administraci6n del SENAPI, en la ciudad
de Chitr6, Republica de Panama. Es el centro nervioso.
de un complejo de edificios donde el SENAPI (Servicio
National de Artesania y Pequefias Industrias), tiene la
base para la gran labor de impulse a las pequefias indus-
trias que Ileva a cabo esa instituci6n en diferentes comu-
nidades rurales del interior de Panama. SENAPI es una
organizaci6n patrocinada conjuntamente por el Ministe-
rio de Agricultura, Comercio e Industrias de la Rep6blica
de Panama y las Naciones Unidas. Tcnicos panamefios
y de las Naciones Unidas, trabajan alli, bajo la direcci6n

y educado en la ciudad de Panama,
se sentia muy emocionado el filtimo
dia de su adiestramiento, alababa el
sistema de trabajo en el Ramo de
Artes GrAficas del Canal y lamentaba
lo corto del adiestramiento. "Todos
aqui han sido muy amables conmigo,
me han contestado todas mis pregun-
tas y creo que con este breve adies-
tramiento, que espero se repita nue-
vamente, mejorar6 la calidad de mis
fotografias en el SENAPI. Tendr6,
en una palabra, mejor rendimiento".
"Para muestra", sigu.e diciendo
Medina muy entusiasmado, "revel6
siete fotos que ya habia revelado en
mi laboratorio del SENAPI y me
salieron much mejor aqui usando los
conocimientos adquiridos. Estas foto-
grafias sobre cer'unica fueron toma-
das por Malcolm Benjamin en el
Museo Nacional de Panama y serin
expuestas en el Centro de La Pefia,
Veraguas, que trabajarA en ceramica.
Tambi6n se dio cuenta que el equi-
po del Ramo de Artes Graficas es
diferente y que tendria que amoldar
lo aprendido a su laboratorio del
SENAPI. Medina tenia 8 afios de
de trabajar con el Centro de Desarro-
1lo de' Productividad Industrial del
Ministerio de Agricultura, Comercio
e Industries y hace 1 afio fue tras-
ladado al SENAPI de Chitre, tambien
dependencia de este ministerio. Alli
lo encargaron del laboratorio de foto-
grafia y aprendi6 a manejarlo por las
instrucciones emanadas de Benjamin
y de Alberto Chan Chen, este iltimo
contraparte panamefia de Benjamin
en lo tocante a disefios.
El SENAPI naci6 hace unos cuan-
tos afios cuando funcionarios del Mi-
nisterio de Agricultura, Comercio e
Industries de Panama, consideraron
la apremiante necesidad de estable-
cer un centro que supervisara y
orientara las artesanias y pequefias
industries que trabajaban, sin nin-
guna direcci6n, diseminadas por di-
ferentes puntos del pais, especial-
mente en las Provincias Centrales,
donde se trabaja el cuero, la cerA-
mica, las fibras vegetables y la madera.
Por ello el Gobierno de Panama con
el concurso de las Naciones Unidas,
que esta proporcionando experts y
equipo, esti haciendo realidad este
proyecto y se estan recogiendo fru-
tos como en La Arena, en la cerA-
mica, en La Pintada, con las fibras
vegetables y en La Colorada, donde
se trabaja cueros.
Medina es uno de los miembros
del personal panamefio que esta
siendo adiestrado. Otros panamefios
han recibido adiestramiento en dise-
fios, mercadeo, ceramica, etc., para
que el proyecto siga adelante, en
manos panamefias.

\ -Q


Pedro Medina, t6cnico del SENAPI de Chitre, Repdblica de Panama, se
adiestra en el uso de una ampliadora de 35 mm. en el Laboratorio del Ramo
de Artes Graficas del Canal de PanamA. La semana que pas6 especializan-
dose en revelado y ampliaci6n, fue el resultado de conversaciones habidas
entire Frank A. Baldwin, Director de Informaci6n del Canal de Panama, y
Malcolm Benjamin, expert estadounidense de las Naciones Unidas, adscrito
al SENAPI de Chitre.

En el Desembarcadero Pierpoint, de
