Civic Councils Prepare

For Annual Elections

Would you like to be a Civic
Council member? Or do you know
just the person who would be ex-
cellent as a Civic Council member?
The Civic Councils on both sides
of the Isthmus are now accepting
names of prospective Council mem-
bers for the ballots to be used in the
annual election in November.
Tuesday, November 5, the date for
elections in the United States, will
be the normal election date for the
Civic Council elections in the Canal
Zone. Some councils, however, may
select another day of that week
because of especial conditions in their
As in past years, the Executive
Planning Staff will arrange to furnish
ballots for the elections and will
assist with other arrangements.

Chagres Closed

To Swimming,

Water Skiing
The Chagres River at Gamboa and
the Canal waters from Gamboa to
Barro Colorado Island are closed to
swimming and water skiing until
further notice. Signs to this effect
have been placed at the Gamboa
Yacht Club and the Gamboa public
Laboratory analyses of water
samples taken from these areas have
shown a bacterial count high enough
to indicate heavy contamination.
This contamination is believed to be
caused by the recent frequent torren-
tial rains above Gamboa and the
watershed area of the Chilibre River
which have washed rural inhabitant
and animal farm waste matters from
a large drainage area into the Chagres
The decrease in rainfall and the
consequent reduction of rain run-
off will stop the contamination
created by this source. Health Bu-
reau officials will maintain surveil-
.lance of the situation and will advise
when water samples indicate swim-
ming and water skiing may be safely
resumed in the restricted areas.
In view of current rainfall predic-
tions, it is expected this approval will
not be forthcoming until October.

The SS Calypso carries two one-

Capt. Kangaroo

TV Show to Air

Movie of Canal
The popular CBS-TV Captain
Kangaroo Show which filmed the
transit of a ship through the Panama
Canal last February will show the
Panama Canal film to the U.S.
audience Thursday, October 24.
Some 8 million people-mostly
children-which is the estimated
viewing audience of the CBS Cap-
tain Kangaroo show will have an
opportunity to learn how ships are
locked through the Canal as they
transit from ocean to ocean.
Canal Zone residents who happen
to be in the United States at that
time will be able to follow a ship-
ment of bananas from Puerto Ar-
muelles through the Canal and see
Captain Kangaroo waving goodbye
to the ship from Gatun Locks. They
also can write to their friends and
relatives in the States to make a date
with Captain Kangaroo Thursday,
October 24, and learn all about the
Panama Canal.

Fortune Smiles on 2

Canal Zone Couples

Dame Fortune smiled sweetly on
two Panama Canal families, Mr. and
Mrs. Edward Mulroy and Mr. and
Mrs. George Folger, while they
attended the Elks National Conven-
tion in New York City recently. The
Mulroys and the Folgers between
them won $750 and two sets of
luggage on the NBC television show
"The Match Game."
Among the many give-aways at
the convention were the tickets to
the TV show. These were ignored by
the two couples until only a few
minutes before the show when they
decided to see "The Match Came."
Mrs. Edward Mulroy, nurse at the
Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic
at Gorgas Hospital, was the first
lucky winner. She was instructed to
finish the phrase "bread. "Butter"
was her answer. The studio called
California and the voice at the other
end also finished the phrase with

a set of luggage!
While the two couples were busy
with congratulations, the announcer
drew another number for the next
day's taped program. George Folger
held the lucky stub! He was asked
to write on a card "part of the face."
All three kept pointing to their noses.
Moments later a telephone con-
testant was reached in Connecticut
who responded to her instructions,
George Folger held up his card on
which he had written "eyes." He
won $250 and a set of luggage!
The lucky winners had checks
waiting for them when they returned
from their vacations to the Canal
Zone. George Folger (Rusty) is an
electrician with the Electrical Divi-
sion, Mrs. Folger is a U.S. Army

"Would you really put yourself
out for me?" she cooed.
"You bet I would," he assured her.

Gwyn Griffin's last novel The
Occupying Power is set on an imagi-
nary island off the coast of Italian
Somaliland. So expert is the author
that the island assumes a true life
of its own. The story opens in the
early days of World War II with a
handful of British officers and men
arriving to take possession. It is sad
that Mr. Griffin's untimely death
means no more books like this one
and his earlier fine novels "A Last
Lamp Burning" and "An Occupa-
tional Necessity." If you haven't
read them yet, you have a treat in
Dr. Desmond Morris is Curator of
Mammals at the London Zoo. With
his wife, Ramona, he has written a
delightful and unique book Men and
Snakes, about man's relationships
with snakes from prehistoric times to
the present. Myths, facts, and fictions
concerning snakes are all included
along with many photographs and
drawings. The book points out the
importance of snakes in magic,
witchcraft, religion, medicine, war
torture, sport, science, commerce,
and entertainment.
Middle Ground by Ursula Zilinsky
is set in Germany at the time of the
final Nazi collapse. The two main
characters, who are trying to survive
the defeat, are a general of the
Afrika Korps and a young inmate of
a labor camp. As confusion surrounds
then they try to find a "middle
ground." This is a tough and crude,
but engrossing, novel.
Wild Midnight Falls by M. E.
Chamber is a good, fast spy story
involving Milo March, the insurance
investigator, in a quick trip to Russia.
VWearing his CIA hat and traveling
with some interesting spy gimmicks
in his luggage, Milo retrieves the
information and an interesting
Russian lady.

Swiss Flautist To Play

In Panama City Concert

Peter Lukas Graf, flautist and di-
rector of the Swiss Orchestra, who
is making his 15th concert trip
through Latin America and the
Caribbean, has accepted an invita-
tion from the Panama Concert Asso-
ciation which is directed by Jaime
Ingram of Panama City, and will be

Flautist Graf, who has been ac-
claimed by Guide Du Concert (Con-
cert Guide) of Paris as one of the
greatest flautists of his era, was born
in 1929 and is a graduate of the
National Conservatory of Music in
Paris, where he was awarded first
prize for flute. A year later he re-
ceived his diploma and top scholastic
honors as an orchestra director.
Shortly afterwards he began to make
his appearances in the twin role of
soloist and orchestra director.
More recently his musical travels
have taken him from England to

Once upon a time, in the Land
of Nod, where nobody ever shook
his head nor tsk-tsked over anything
but tithing, there galloped out of the
Pacific a pontooned version of Silver,
or Trigger, or maybe Rosinante, who
scooped up our Regular Writer and
sailed off with him into the sunset
toward all the big doin's at Mouths
of the Bull-so he could have some
Bulletins for you next week.
When I asked this horse to be
careful with Our Scribe, he whin-
nied: "I have come to ferry Caesar,
not to raze him."
Thus assured by a frank horse that
a bright future exists for fantasy, we
can commence this barrage with
confidence-the kind you get from a
con-man. (I wouldn't believe a horse
on a bet; my last choice at the Hippo-
drome ran like a hippopotamus on

in both, to wit:
Spanish: Los Angeles, Las Pulgas,
Del Rio, Tijuana-this last, of course,
being quite prevalent in Spanish
jungle movies as the first half of the
phrase, Thee Jane, me Tarzan.
Russian: Cha-cha-chonya (a Rus-
sian cumbia), horosho spahceeboh
(space horrow show), and ameri-
kansi (Mary can ski). Mary can't
ski, of course, is amerikantski. Now
you can see why Berlitz wanted me

any price. .

Captain Mann joined the Canal organization as a towboat master in October
1952. He is a graduate of the U.S. Maritime Service officers' school and
before coming to the Canal Zone was with the Curtis Bay Towing Co. of
Virginia, Inc., of Norfolk, Va., as towboat master and pilot. He was with
the Dredging Division as towboat master until April 1958 when he trans-
ferred to a position as tugmaster. He was reassigned as pilot-in-training in
March. Captain Williams is a 1959 graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy at Kings Point. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserve and was
an officer aboard Reynolds Metals Co. ships until he joined the Canal
organization as pilot-in-training in 1967.

take me on a short trek into the

any rate, my fears were enforced by
the fact that Jungle Sam is near-

lenses just to see his eyeglasses.
The very first day out on the trek,
he picked up a snake to kill a stick.
"For God's sake, Sam," I said,
"leave that snake alone."
He started to hand me the snake.
"Oh-you want to kill this one?" he
offered, pointing to the stick with
the snake.

the stick-it was a nice big stick-

room, they failed to turn the light on
after they undressed, and wound
up in the same bed. For a
moment, there was silence. Then
one whispered:

Dr. McDevitt has led a drive for
lay leadership in the Catholic Church

Michigan Cyclist Makes it

After 24 Days on Road

The plan looked good on paper.
Randall Scott of Hubbard Lake,
Mich., who had just made his first
major investment in a motorcycle,
was to drive down over the Inter-
American Highway, visit his friend,
Courtney Wilder, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Frank Wilder of Los Rios, and
then the two would return to
Michigan Sta te University for their
senior year.
Scott, who is 21, left Lansing,
Mich., on August 23 with 5,000 miles
of road winding ahead of him. His
friend, Courtney, waited and waited
and then finally left on September 14
for Michigan. Scott arrived at the
Wilder home 2 days later.
The motor-driven cycle he rode
from Michigan to Panama has a
maximum speed of about 35 miles
an hour. lHe carries a U.S. Army sur-
plus jungle hammock, a knapsack
of clothes and he'd built two "cajas"
on either side of the vehicle, utilizing
old Michigan license plates, as stor-
age area for tools, water, extra oil,
and some food.
On the 24-day. trip, he spent only
5 of the nights in hotels. Usually, he
said, he'd stopped at a gas station
and ask permission to sling his ham-
mock between nearby trees. An ex-
ception was his experience in La
Chorrera in Panama. The traveler
stopped at a gas station and inquired
for a hotel or motel, only to be told
there was none. The Guardia Nacio-
nal invited him to bunk at the sta-
tion house, but there was a full
house. Not to be outdone. in hos-
pitality, the bombers invited him

to spend the night at the fire depart-
ment headquarters, and he accepted.
A guitar he'd purchased in Ger-
many, while studying German for
7 weeks in a private school in
Cologne last summer, proved to be a
real friend-maker during the long
journey. "I had fun," said Randall.
"Every time I came to a good-size
city I would stop at a corner, strum
my guitar and sing a bit. It wouldn't
be long before I was teaching songs,
and learning songs from the people
in exchange."
The only problem he encountered
in the song exchange was that of
finding written melodies. Words of
the old songs could be written, but
finding the written music was some-
thing else again.
The trip was remarkably free of
difficulties. Twice he fell off the
cycle, once in Mexico and the other
time in Guatemala, due to traffic
mishaps. The motor-driven cycle
broke down in Guatemala, but a
friendly busdriver, assisted by a pas-
senger, tied the little vehicle on top
of the bus, and for $8 took Scott and
his cycle to Guatemala City. Then,
on the rough road between San Jose
and the Panama border, he was
given a lift by a truck "that probably
saved me a travel day," he says," for
he was able to proceed at only some
5 miles an hour.
lie was careful about food, and
suffered no digestive troubles.
Now it's back to Michigan State
tomorrow in readiness for classes
that start on Monday. He is major-
ing in Humanities and languages.

6No les parece a ustedes un poco
macabra la idea de ser congelado
para ser resucitado despu6s del aiio
2000? Pues esta es-ni miss, ni menos
-la principal actividad a que se de-
dica por ahora la "Cryonics Society",
que cuenta ya con 75 asociados en
la ciudad de Nueva York. La aso-
ciaci6n (cuyo solo nombre que alude
al frio basta para poner la came de
gallina a cualquier timorato coming
y corriente) se ocupa de conservar
los cadiveres en estado de congela-
ci6n, con el objeto de revivirlos en
el moment en que la ciencia tenga
la cura para los males que les oca-
sionaron la muerte. Palabra que
hasta la muerte adquiere un character
de provisionalidad en este tiempo de
vertiginosos cambios, en el que lo
que s6lo ayer era una fantasia, digna
si acaso de la ciencia-ficci6n, se ha
tornado hoy en el pan nuestro de
cada dia. Y no es de extrafiar que
ese hombre que manda naves a la
luna y vive en una civilizaci6n donde
las cosas se obtienen oprimiendo bo-
tones, quiera tambi6n prolongar su
vida hacia el infinite. Parece que la
cosa march, pues se ha perfeccio-
nado notablemente la t6cnica para
congelar cadaveres. (i Ugh!) El finico
problema es que no se saben dos
cosas: (1) c6mo descongelar el cuerpo
sin perjudicarlo y (2) c6mo devolver-
le la vida. Detallitos secundarios,
como ustedes veran, que no son
como para acobardar a nuestros in-
cansables cientificos, quienes cierta-
mente se han venido enfrentando a
rompecabezas peores desde que sa-
lieron del paraiso por "manzaneros".

Prohibido Esquiar

0 Nadar en Gamboa

Y en Parte del Canal
El Rio Chagres, en Gamboa, y
las aguas del Canal, desde Gamboa
hasta la Isla de Barro Colorado, han
sido cerradas para los nadadores y
los esquiadores sobre el agua, hasta
pr6ximo aviso.
Los anilisis de laboratorio de
muestras de esas aguas muestran un
conteo de bacteria que indica una
alta contaminaci6n. Se cree que esta
contaminaci6n se debe a las torren-
ciales lluvias caidas recientemente en
la cuenca del Rio Chilibre y que han
arrastrado desperdicios humans y
animals desde una gran Area hacia el
Rio Chagres.
La disminuci6n de las lluvias y
consiguiente baja en la afluencia de
agua pararA la contaminaci6n creada
por esta causa. Los funcionarios de
la Direcci6n de Salubridad manten-
drAn una estrecha vigilancia sobre
esta situaci6n y anunciarAn cuando
las pruebas de laboratorio indiquen
que la nataci6n y el esqui acuAtico
puedan reanudarse en las areas ahora
