Randolph Road

Will Reopen

About Feb. 22
The section of Randolph Road
between France Field and Boyd-
Roosevelt Highway in the Atlantic
area, which has been closed since
mid-April, is scheduled to be opened
to through traffic on or about Feb-
ruary 22.
The road was closed for contract
construction of a new asphalt pave-
ment in this section of the roadway.
The repaving work consisted of plac-
ing approximately 2 feet of coral over
the old sunken concrete road, and
then resurfacing with asphalt. The
raised, paved highway will greatly
reduce the hazards from flooding and
ponding during the torrential rains
common to the area.
The Randolph Road paving is the
final project on contract road work
being performed in the Atlantic area
by Bildon, Ltd. Other road repair
work was done at Locks Road in
Catun and at the parking lots of the
Margarita and Rainbow City Service
Drivers are urged to continue to
obey all traffic signs and to use ex-
treme caution in this area until the
opening of the newly constructed

To Begin

Feb. 15
Carnival, Panama's biggest and
gayest holiday, will begin on Feb-
ruary 15 and run through Feb-
ruary 18, with many activities plan-
ned throughout the country during
the 4-day period.
In Panama City, the official Car-
nival Queen for 1969, Miss Delia
Magdalena Vald6s V., will reign over
the festivities as Queen Magda I. Her
royal headquarters will be at the Pan-
ama Yacht Club on Balboa Avenue.
The Carnival weekend is usually
marked by fun and frolic at all the
clubs and hotels in the city, with
dances lasting into the early hours.
Parades and gaily-dressed comparsas
(groups dressed alike in costume) are
the highlights of Saturday's activities.
Sunday is "Pollera Day," when the
nation's folk costumes dominate the
scene and many splendid hand-made
"polleras" may be seen in the streets
and at dances throughout the city.
The Carnival activity is brought to
a close with the traditional "burial
of the fish," usually a sardine, at sun-
rise on Ash Wednesday morning.
This marks the close of the pre-
Lenten festivities and the start of
Lent, the major religious season in
this predominantly Catholic country.

Among those who retired were a
division chief, a chief of the Dental
Service at Gorgas Hospital, an assist-
ant harbormaster, towboat masters,
a police lieutenant, teachers, a Navi-
gation Division administrative officer,

an outstanding service record and
we're sad to lose this group from the

the retiring employees for their many
years of dedicated service. He closed

Last Saturday, Miss Prather cele-
brated her 101st birthday at her
home at 1517 NE Hancock Street in
Portland, Oreg. The occasion was
observed, not only by friends and
relatives, but also by the Canal Zone
Division of Schools who sent her a
birthday message.
It is believed that Miss Prather is
the oldest living ex-Canal Zone
school teacher. Born in Pennsylvania,
she attended school there and took
teacher's training in the Clarion,
Pennsylvania Normal School, grad-
uating in 1892.
She taught elementary school in
Pennsylvania and Indiana before
coming to the Canal Zone in 1912.
She was a teacher in Empire and
Pedro Miguel before coming to Bal-
boa where she taught fourth grade
until 1932. According to her record,
she was retired in 1932 on the so-
called economy bill although she was
64 years old at the time.
Miss Prather remained on the Isth-
mus for a number of years after her
retirement but recently has been
making her home in Portland.

Canal Visited

By Shipowner

Mungo Campbell, grandson of the
owner of the first foreign vessel
through the Panama Canal, got his
first look at the Canal-or, rather at
one of the Canal's three locks-re-
cently when he arrived at Cristobal
as a cruise passenger on board the
Oslofjord. He was accompanied by
his wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Campbell were met
on arrival by W. A. Beech of Payne
& Wardlaw, the local agents who
have represented grandfather and
grandson ship owners.
Campbell's grandfather was John
M. Campbell, owner of J. M. Camp-
bell & Son of Glasgow, Scotland.
Their vessel, the first foreign vessel
through the Panama Canal, was the
Daldorch, a cargo steamer loaded
with 11,500 tons of wheat that arrived
at Balboa August 20 and passed
through the Canal, bound for Lime-
rick, Ireland, August 22, 1914.
According to the CANAL RECOID,
the Daldorch left Tacoma, Wash.,
on the day of the outbreak of hostili-
ties in Europe, intending to sail
around South America. At Cape San
Lucia, the captain received a radio
message instructing him to use the
Canal, which would save about 40
days in the voyage.
Mungo Campbell, of Mungo Camp-
bell & Co. of Newcastle, England,
now is a retired shipowner.

Three Cyclists Journe

To CZ. From W. Vi

Three motorcyclists-two of them
grandfathers-recently completed a
2-week journey of more than 5,000
miles from Logan, W. Va., to the
Canal Zone.
Steve Ratz, a cycle dealer, Noah
Adams, chef and restaurant owner
and Baptist Evangelist minister, and
James Gaylock, garage and wrecker
service owner, all of Logan, were
recent house guests of Dr. John Har-
sany, Gorgas Hospital intern. Ratz is
an uncle of Dr. Harsany.
The trio, who cycled to Florida
last year, had no misgivings about
the long hard ride facing them as
they left behind them the snow and
ice of Logan and headed for the sun-
shine. Fortunately, they were just as
enthusiastic when they arrived at
their destination; they experienced
no major problems along the way.
Tedious hours spent in the rigma-
role of checking travel documents at
the borders of each country they
visited was the most annoying part
of the long trip. They found people
everywhere very friendly and most
helpful, waving them on as they
called out the name of the next town
on the itinerary.
The highways were ribbons of con-
crete most of the way. But no one

to improve a driver's awareness to
the need for staying alert to the ac-

avoid an accident, the course also
refreshes the students on points often
taken for granted by the experienced
motorist. The theme of the Defensive

in this day and age.

S46 Retire From P.C.

while on a brief visit to the Panama Canal, presented a Mrs. Claire Griffin, chairman of Red Cross volunteers;
copy of "The Wild Children of the Urals" to the Canal Mrs. Maxine Logan, Red Cross administrative assistant;
Zone Red Cross Chapter as a memento of the trip he'd Mrs. Helen Higstand, a passenger with the Bramhalls
made through the Canal in 1920 with 780 children who on the "Statendam"; Mrs. Bramhall; Bramhall; Castles;
had been marooned in the Ural Mountains in Europe. and Mrs. Marie Van Clief, Red Cross production chair-
F. A. Castles, chairman, Canal Zone Chapter, American man.

He Recalls

P.C. Transit

OF 1920

Forty-eight years ago, Burle D.
Bramhall of Seattle, Wash.-at that
time with the American Red Cross
Petrograd Children's Colony Expedi-
tion-came through the Panama Canal
on board the SS Yomei Maru with
some 780 children who were being
returned to their European homes
after being marooned in the Ural
Mountains during World War I.
Last week, accompanied by his
wife, he returned for a brief visit to
the Panama Canal and brought with
him a book that told the story of that
voyage nearly half a century ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Bramhall are pas-
sengers on the Statendam's Caribbean
cruise and while in the Canal Zone
had a brief get-together with Amer-
ican Red Cross officials. Bramhall
presented a copy of Floyd Miller's
"Wild Children of the Urals" to F. A.
Castles, chairman of the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
for the chapter here.
"One of the highlights of that trip,
in August 1920, and an experience
still very fresh in my mind was the
wonderful treatment we received
from the women of the Canal Zone
Chapter on our arrival in Balboa one
night and while going through the
locks the next day," he said.
The 780 children with him on that
1920 trip had been brought by the
American Red Cross to Omsk, then
to Vladivostok, and finally by ship to
San Francisco, through the Panama
Canal to New York, and then to
Finland. The American Red Cross re-
turned 85 percent of the children to
their parents, 7 percent to relatives
or friends and the remaining 8 per-
cent to the Soviet Government.

Earl Dailey, Local

Astronomer, Retires

Earl O. Dailey, who retired in
January as Chief of the Electrical
Work Branch of the Canal's Elec-
trical Division, spent more than 35
years with the Canal organization as
an electrical engineer, but some of
his fondest memories concern his ac-
tivities as an amateur astronomer.
He became an expert in this field
and for a number of years he helped
manage the Canal Zone observatory
at Miraflores and taught extension
courses in astronomy for credit for
Florida State University at the Canal
Zone College.
His interest in astronomy came
about in the early 1930's when he was
in school and his younger brother
Elmer began asking questions about
stars that Earl could not answer.
He started reading books on the
subject and, with the help of the
former Canal Zone astronomical
society, became so knowledgeable he
answered his brother's questions,
taught classes in the subject and
worked with James A. Hess, founder
of the observatory and Oliver Bullock,
author of a booklet entitled "Panama
Evening Skies." With Clarence True,
another amateur astronomer who
worked for the Canal, Dailey gave
lectures and assisted visitors in ad-
justing the telescope on the nights
the observatory was open to the

Earl O. Dailey

One of the highlights of his career
in local astronomy came during
World War II when he went to Costa
Rica with True and Bullock to help
explain a strange object in the sky.
It turned out to be the planet Venus
which was closest to the Earth in 25
years. Dailey said the star stood out
like a small moon in the clear blue
Costa Rican skies and was clearly
visible during the day as well as at
night. It was the cause of some con-
cern to the men who manned a U.S.
wartime base in Costa Rica until the
boys from the Canal Zone explained
it was just a harmless planet making
a periodic wing toward earth.
While Dailey was busy with as-
tronomy, he also was working as an
electrical engineer and in 1950 was
made supervising electrical engineer
of the southern district. In 1955,
when he was loaned by the Electrical
Division to the Power Conversion
project as area engineer, he went to
the Atlantic side and had to give up
his activities with the observatory.
The operation of the observatory was
taken over by B. J. Brown, of the En-
gineering Division and J. W. Sea-
.:uist, of the Schools Division.
He stayed with the power conver-
sion project until the work was com-
pleted in 1959 when he went back to
the Electrical Division as Balboa
Field Office supervisor. Since 1967,
he has been chief of the Electrical
Work Branch.
Dailey has lived most of his life
on the Isthmus since his father Elmer
Dailey was employed with the Me-
chanical Division in Balboa and he
attended the Canal Zone schools. He
has a degree in electrical engineering
from Tulane University in New Or-
leans. His wife is the fonner Char-
lotte Wahl, whose father was Canal
Zone labor representative in Wash-
ington, D.C., for many years.
The Daileys plan to live in St.
Petersburg, Fla., where they expect
to keep as busy as they have on the
Canal Zone. They will continue
square dancing for one thing. They
are members here of the Star in the
Circle square dance club, which has
51 members and a class of 26 new
members learning the steps right

College Club To Hold
Fashion Show March 8
The Canal Zone College Club's
annual fashion show will be held at

March 8, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The proceeds will be used to send
a girl from Balboa High School or

the United States.

We're all accustomed in this in-
flated age to reading about millions
anl billions. But, do you really ap-
preciate the difference?
Try this one on for size:
If you go shopping for 40 hours
a week, spending $1,000 an hour, it
would take 25 weeks to spend $1
million. If you followed the same
schedule, spending a billion dollars
would take 481 years!
That's one way to tell the ditler-
ence between a million and a billion.

cuando dejaron atrAs. la nieve y el
hielo de Logan y se dirigieron a tie-
rras bafiadas por el sol. Afortunada-
inente, estaban muy entusiasmados
cuando Ilegaron a su destino, ya que
no tuvieron muchos problems a lo
largo del camino.
IHoras tediosas en aquello de revi-
sar documents de viaje en las fron-
teras de cada pais que visitaron, re-
sult6 la parte mas inc6moda del largo
viaje. Encontraron en todas parties
gentle nmy servicial, sefialAndoles la
ruta cuando mencionaban el nombre
del pr6ximo pueblo en el itinerario.
Las carreteras eran de concrete en
su mayoria. Pero nadie les advirtii
del tramo montailoso no pavimentado
entire Costa Rica y PanamA, especial-
mente peligroso para el manejo noc-
turno. En Cartago, justamente al sur
de San Jos6, Costa Rica, comenzaron
a subir la Divisi6n Continental de
6.000 pies y el traicionero "Cerro de
la Muerte" con una altitude de aproxi-
mladamente 12.000 pies.
Les tom6 6 horas para atravesar las
70 millas hasta San Isidro, estando la
carretera invisible la mayor parte del
tiempo debido a la lluvia, densa nie-
bla y lodo. El manejo nocturno a tra-
vis de Costa Rica rue el imas inquie-
tante de todo el viaje.
Viajando aproximadamente 16 ho-
ras cada dia, acamparon al aire libre
la mayor part del tiempo. Una noche
la pasaron en un estadio en Ciudad
de Mixico, y otras al lado de la ca-
rretera. La alimentaci6n no fue pro-
blema, ya que consiguieron comida
en las abarroterias nativas. Por cierto
que se comieron buenos bistecs.
La obtenci6n de gasoline no fue
problema, porque habia estaciones de
gasoline casi cada 40 millas a trav6s
del M6xico rural y en la Amnrica
Central. Hicieron un promedio de
unas 50 millas por gal6n a una velo-
cidad de unas 60 millas por hora.
Ratz, Adams y Gaylock animan a
otros motociclistas a hacer el viaje.
Su unica queja fue el resultado de
star much tiempo sentados. Pero
esto no los desanima de su intenci6n
de recorrer de regreso las 5.000 mi-
llas, en motocicleta.

Una cosa buena sobre la gente
que lo ignora a uno-no da malos

Hay muchas personas entire noso-
tros que se sienten a su gusto en
medio de nuestro calor tropical y
que no quieren saber para nada del

Zacchary Wilson, conductor de auto-
m6vil en la Divisi6n de Transporte a
Motor en Anc6n. Y es tal el amor que
le tiene Wilson al calorcito nuestro,
que ni aunque le paguen entra a las

dos de la Divisi6n de Transporte a

servicial, es muy apreciado por sus
companeros de trabajo. Dicen las
malas lenguas que en sus bolsillos
carga articulos sumamente dificiles de
encontrar en los bolsillos de otras per-
sonas. Asi que le aconsejamos a los
que lo conocen que jams le metan

Y ya que andamos por los lados
de la Divisi6n de Transporte a Motor
de Anc6n, les diremos que alli presta
servicios un hombre que no s6lo es
un magnifico mecinico y buen com-
panero de laborers, sino que es suma-
mente active en bien de la comuni-
dad a la que pertenece. La verdad es
que no sabemos c6mo se las arregla
para poder dar abasto a todos los
compromises que debe tener, debido
a las muchas sociedades a que per-
tenece. El caballero a que nos refe-
rimos es sumamente apreciado en la
ciudad de La Chorrera. H6 aqui la
list de las organizaciones a que per-

Uno de los personajes mas pinto-
rescos que se agitan por los lados de

]a raz6n, pero muchas personas le
lainan Jim West. No se parece en
nada al personaje de la series de TV.
Lo que mas caracteriza a Rupert
West, conductor de autom6viles del
Canal de PanamA, es que siempre
anda impecablemente vestido y que
siempre estAl de buen humor.

Y ya que nos la hemos pasado ha-
blando de personas que se agitan en
el ramo del automovilismo, aqui unos
cuantos consejos que debemos recor-
dlar los quc nos encontramos frente


I aidete tirn ue derrme
ed.,ld verdadera "

Pagina 3

a la rueda del tim6n de un autom6-
PRIMERO: No se le pegue al
vehiculo que va delante de usted.
Puede que el conductor tenga que
detenerse repentinamente y usted no
pueda frenar a tiempo. La cosa se
pone peor si el que viene detras de
usted tampoco ha dejado suficiente
espacio, pues resultaria que su auto
no s6lo quedaria dafiado por delante,
sino tambi6n por detras, en el mejor
de los casos.

SEGUNDO: Si usted va al lado del
conductor, recuerde que 61 estl muy
ocupado, tratando de evitar un pro-
blema a causa del manejo, y no le
able, pues ello puede causar una
tragedia. D6jelo que se concentre en
el manejo. Si usted es el que va mane-
jando, hable lo menos possible con
sus pasajeros, pues si sucede un acci-
dente por una distracci6n, el respon-
sable serai usted y no ellos.

TERCERO: Los autom6viles, des-
de hace ya bastantes aios, est6n do-
tados de luces de sefiales o "pide-
vias", como se les llama en otras par-
tes. Por su propia conveniencia, ise-
los. Y si su auto tiene ya unos cuantos
aiiitos y no posee esos convenientes
aparatos, pues utilice las sefiales de
mano que aprendimos los viejitos
cuando empezamos a manejar.

todos ellos desearian que hubiera
otra maestra al estilo de Dove Pra-
