"Maybe I'll have to break open my piggy bank," seems to be what Chris-
topher Kelly, 4, is thinking as he admires the tea service. Pondering over
what to get Mom for Mother's Day, May 11, is sometimes a mighty big chore
for the little ones. But big or not, Mom will be remembered this Sunday.

The Panama Canal Health Bureau
and the Canal Zone Cancer Commit-
tee are urging all women to have pap
smear tests taken to detect cancer of
the cervix-the second most common
killer of women.
If detected early enough, there is
a 100 percent chance of a cure.
The test is readily available to all
women eligible for medical treatment
at Canal Zone hospitals and military
dispensaries. Appointments can be
made by calling the Obstetric and
Gynecology Clinics at Corgas or Coco
Solo Hospitals.
The test is painless, inexpensive,
and fast.
Health officials suggest women
make appointments during the month
of their birthday. This makes it easier
to remember and it helps to distribute
the work load throughout the year.

Donald E. Musselman

To Direct "Showboat"

Donald E. Musselman, former head
of the drama department of the Canal
Zone College and a well known mem-
ber of local dramatic groups, will
return to the Isthmus in May to
direct "Showboat," Jerome Kern's
classic extravaganza that has been
chosen as the 1969 United Fund
benefit production.
Musselman left the Isthmus in 1964
after spending 10 years here as drama
instructor in both the Balboa High
School and the Canal Zone College.
Some of the plays he directed for
the High School included "Romeo
and Juliet," "Lute Song," and "Fin-
ian's Rainbow" with Victor Herr as
At the college, his best known work
was done at the Shakespeare Festival
and his direction of "Fantasticks."
He directed the bilingual produc-
tion of "Blood Wedding" for the
Panama National Theatre and was
codirector with Bruce Quinn of
"South Pacific," the Theatre Guild's
record holding production.
At present he is with Florida
Southern College where he directed
"The Lark" and Sardon's "Let's Get
a Divorce." A Florida newspaper
called this last play a technical mas-
terpiece and credited Musselman with
producing a highly polished collegiate
production during which "a full meal
is served from soup to nuts with

After his departure from the Canal
Zone, Musselman spent a year at the
University of Indiana working on his
doctor of philosophy in drama. He
then became technical director of the
Marjorie Lyons Playhouse of the
Centenary College of Shreveport,
La., and a member of the speech and
drama department.
While with the Centenary College,
he produced the Garcia Lorca Span-
ish drama, "Yerma" which won him
a Journal Cultural Award as the finest
local production of the season.
He also received a drama citation
from the SHREVEPORT TIMES for his
sets for the student mounting of
"Henry V."
Later he directed "Cosi Fan Tutte,"
an opera in two acts produced by the
Shreveport Symphony Orchestra.
Musselman holds a bachelor's de-
gree from Eastern Illinois University
in DeKalb and a master's degree from
the University of Chicago. His ex-
perience includes studies and training
at the famous Max Reinhardt Work-
shop in California and at the Univer-
sity of San Carlos in Guatemala.
Musselman will arrive on the Isth-
mus with his wife in May and tryouts
for "Showboat" will be held at the
Balboa High School Auditorifum from

John Bateman, ILC Industries systems test engineer working at NAS
Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, is shown with the space suit w
by Col. Frank Boreman, Commander of the Apollo 8 mission around
moon last Christmas. Bateman attended Canal Zone schools.

Former C.Z. Man Plays

Part in Space Flights

John Bateman, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Bruce Bateman, formerly of the
Canal Zone and now living in Pan-
ama City is taking an active part in
the launching of the Apollo lunar
space missions at NASA's Manned
Spacecraft Center in Houston.
The Balboa High School and Canal
Zone College graduate is directly
involved with the astronauts in the
testing of Apollo equipment such as
the space suit and its associated com-
ponents. He worked on the Apollo 7
and was assigned to Apollo 8 and
Apollo 9 missions as a member of the
engineering crew support team.
After graduating from Middle
Tennessee State University and doing
graduate work in engineering at the
University of Houston, he worked for
Lockheed Electronics as a scientific
computer programmer and joined
ILC Industries in March 1968. He
works as a systems test engineer.
Before each launch from Cape
Kennedy, the crew and its support
team travel to Downey, Calif., to
the North American Rockwell Corp.
plant where the Saturn V's Command
Module, the manned vehicle, under-
goes rigid stowage reviews, fit and
function verifications and other gen-
eral systems testing. More testing is
carried on at the Grumman Aircraft
Engineering Corp. in Long Island,
N.Y., on the LM, the lunar module,
the vehicle designed to carry men to
and from the lunar surface.
Apollo 9 is an especially critical
mission in the space program because
it is the first Apollo flight checkout
of the LM and the astronaut extra
vehicular unit. The pressure garment
assembly-space suit has a special ther-
mal insular covering material to pro-
tect the man from excessive space and
solar radiation. It also has a back pack
type portable life support system,
which provides breathable oxygen.

Due to the complete modernization

through a central switchboard.
The following numbers may be
dialed and connected immediately to
the proper department.

b Rains Close


Due to the arrival of rainy season
and cloudy skies, the Canal Zone
Observatory has been closed to the
public, it has been announced by the
Schools Division.
The observatory was opened in
January when Panama dry season
skies permit a spectacular view of
the celestial sphere between sundown
and sunrise. During the past 3 months
visitors observed numerous astronom-
ical objects through the telescope and
heard lectures on many of the inter-
esting features of the solar system and
the milky way galaxy. Many of the
brightest and nearest objects such as
the moon, planets and stars, as well
as man-made satellites, were readily
A's visible.
orn The almost continuous thick cloud
the cover- overhead during the rainy
season prevents viewing these fas-
cinating objects.
The Canal Zone Observatory oper-
ates under the auspices of the Canal
Zone Schools Division. B. J. Brown
of the Engineering Division, and
J. W. Seaquist, Balboa High School
science instructor, describe the celes-
metial objects to the visitors.

By Beverly C. Williams

The Facemaker is the saga of a
pioneer in plastic surgery. What
makes this a fascinating story is the
central character, Dr. Graham Tre-
vose-aggressive, charming, witty,
thoroughly outrageous. The novel
follows his career from the early days
when he launched himself as face-
maker to the rich and famous, viewed
with disdain by his colleagues, to the
culmination of his career as "grand
old man" of the newly respected

specialty of plastic surgery. The
author, Richard Gordon, has written
several novels about doctors.
With summer vacations coming up,
there might be increased interest in
such books as Cooking For Family
Campers. The authors, James and
Barbara Newman, are veteran cam-
pers of 20 years. They have cooked
hundreds of meals outdoors, from
Key West to Alaska and California to
Nova Scotia, in all seasons. They are
firm believers in simple but satisfy-
ing camping meals that women, as
well as men and children, can accom-
plish easily. This is a cook book for
those who prefer to spend the better
part of their time on the enjoyment
of camping and the outdoors, and a
minimum of time on cooking.
The Family Man by John Gale, is
a novel about the journey of a sensi-
tive man through the crises and
terrors of our time to nervous dis-
integration and back to hard-won
equilibrium. Andy Minuss, possessed
of a finely balanced and deeply sen-
sitive mind, is overcome by the ten-
sions and horrors through which his
job as a journalist takes him. His
salvation is a year's reprieve in Pro-
vence with his family. The idyllic
life they share and Andy's quest for
peace of mind make this a moving
Michael Delving, in The Devil
Finds Work, brings back Dave Can-

They become involved in a strange
and terrifying mystery in which a
famous silver cup is stolen and a
bizarre murder takes place in the
village church.

conservation of natural resources,
cooking, first aid, fishing, Indian lore,
lifesaving, nature, pioneering, rifle
and shotgun, swimming, and scout
lifeguard. The boys learn many other
skills arising from camping and out-
door activities.
Because the level of Madden Lake
is low at this time exposing large
beach areas, the boy scouts will have
an opportunity to look for and per-
haps find such things as arrowheads,
old pots, celts (old stone chisels),
mule shoes, and other articles of by-
gone days. The Old Gold Trail from
Old Panama to Portobelo used by
the Spaniards in Colonial days is
exposed in some areas and draws
seekers of pieces of eight.

"Siento un gran respeto por
todos los que tomaron parte en el
Torneo de Lanzamiento de Cables,
pues todos ellos merecen ser cam-
peones. Pero, entire todos, admiro
a Melhado Smith, pues es el que
mis ha tomado a pecho ese as-
pecto de nuestro trabajo. Se la

el campeonato todos los aios".
Asi resume sus impresiones sobre

siempre ha pertenecido a la Divisi6n
de Esclusas; para ser mas precisos a
las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel. Naci6

la prinimera vez que entr6 a trabajar
con el Canal de PanamA, fue cuando
tenia 16 ainos. Sus compafieros de
infancia trabajaban todos acA y le
decian que viniera a ver si conseguia
algo. "Tuve suerte", dice "y el primer
dia qued( trabajando como ayudante
general en el Taller de Torneria de
la vieja Divisi6n Mecinica". A los
9 meses hubo reducci6n de fuerza
y le ofrecieron otra posici6n, pero

bajar en la agriculture, que siempre
le ha gustado. Un hennano mayor,

Cafiizales pertenece a una familiar
que desde hace afios ha estado rela-

su familiar son cuatro hermanos va-

en las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel;
Julian es operator de equipo pesado
con el Ejercito de Estados Unidos
en el sector Pacifico, y Balbino,
quien posee various autobuses en la
Ruta de Panama Viejo, tambi6n tra-
baj6 muchos alios en el Canal. Hay
ademAs tres hermanas, todas casadas
y madres de familiar.
Esteban esta muy content con su
trabajo en el Canal. "Jamas hubiera

estoy hacienda, si no hubiera venido
a trabajar acA", dice satisfecho y
aiade: "la vida del campo es suma-

"Showboat" Sera...
(Viene de la pdgina 1)
Su experiencia incluye studios y
adiestramiento en el famoso Estudio
de Max Reinhard, en California, y en
la Universidad de San Carlos, en
Musselman IlegarA al Istmo con
su esposa, en mayo, y las pruebas
para "Showboat", tendrAn lugar en
el Auditorio de la Escuela Secundaria
de Balboa del 2 al 6 de junio. Esta
obra musical, que esta siendo pro-
ducida por Bruce Quinn, se estrenarA
el 18 de julio en el Auditorio de la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa y
seguirA hasta el 2 de agosto.

Una vieja tradici6n interiorana, a
punto de perderse, revivirA el do-
mingo pr6ximo, cuando se construya
la Casa de Manuel Fernando ZArate,
en Guarare, pueblo natal de ese gran
folklorista panameiio.
Se trata de la traditional "emba-
rra", que permitira ver en todo su
esplendor a bellas muchachas, ves-
tidas con polleras o basquifias, re-
partiendo comidas tipicas y la famosa
chicha de junta a los hombres que,
entire cantos y salomas cargarAn la
tierra y el agua en carretas, para
luego, al repique de los tipicos tam-
bores, entrar entrelazados a pisar la
tierra, mezclada con paja y agua, que
sera la mezcla con que se harAn las
paredes de la casa.
Las paredes de la casa, prefabri-
cadas al estilo interiorano, ya estin
delineadas en ese moment, porque
los cuatro postes que servirAn de base
al techado, estAn unidos por muchas
vueltas de cafiaza labrada, amarrada
con bejucos.
La embarra estA a cargo de various
equipos de hombres fuertes y vigo-
rosos. Ya dejamos a los que entire can-
tos y jolgorio estAn preparando la
mezcla de tierra y paja; hay dos equi-
pos mAs, uno dentro y otro fuera de
la future casa, los embarradores, que
serAn los encargados de hacer la
pared; otros, los alisadores, tambien
un grupo dentro y otro fuera de la
casa, que se encargarin de alisar la
pared, luego de embarrada, y por
ultim(l otros que recogeran mazos
de tierra ya pisada, "pellas" como las
llaman en el Interior y se las llevarAn
a los embarradores.
Los embarradores deben ser hom-
bres vigorosos. Al mismo tiempo, los
de adentro y los de afuera, lanzan las
pellas contra los que tienen al frente,
con much fuerza y al mismb tiempo.
Ello causa que las pellas repleten la
part que queda dentro de las caria-
zas, expulsen todo el aire que quede
entire pella y pella y le den mayor
fortaleza a la pared. Luego los alisa-
dores hacen su trabajo.
El program de la junta para em-
barrar la Casa de Manuel F. ZArate,
comenzarA hoy viernes con la organi-
zaci6n de la cocina y demAs instala-
ciones bajo una gran enramada. Tam-
bi6n comenzarA la piladera del arroz
y el maiz, al son de la cajita tipica,
faena que estard a cargo de las muje-
res del pueblo, que alegrarAn el am-
biente con sus tonadas tradicionales.
Mafiana sAbado, a la 1 p.m., co-
menzarin los hombres a mojar la
tierra y al terminar de prepararla y
mezclarla con la paja, seguira el en-
jaule de la casa con las cafiazas labra-
das. A las 4 p.m., se reunirAn los pa-

drinos en el parque de Guarar6, desde
donde saldrAn en manifestaci6n, hasta
la casa enjaulada. Cada padrino lle-
varA una banderola de diferente
color, que los carpinteros colocarin
en las soleras de la nueva casa. Alli
se servirAn bollos de maiz, care
asada de res y de puerco y la deliciosa
chicha de maiz.
El domingo, a las 7 a.m., tendrA
lugar el recibimiento a las delega-
ciones que llegarin de todos los alre-
dedores para demostrar sus habilida-
des en la preparaci6n del barro y de
la paja. Lo harAn grupos de hombres
entrelazados por los brazos, al ritmo
del toque de la caja, mientras otros
afiadirAn agua a la mezcla hasta darle
la consistencia deseada. A las 9 a.m.,
otros grupos empezarAn el embarre y
se espera que esa labor quede ter-
minada antes de ponerse el sol. Al
Ilegar ese moment, se bajarAn las
banderas y pasearAn a los padrinos
en hombros.
La viuda del Profesor Manuel F.
Z6rate, Profesora Dora P6rez de
ZArate, gran cultora tambi6n del fol-
klore panamefio, dird las palabras
finales en este simpAtico gesto del
pueblo de Guarare y de las gentes de
Azuero, hacia la memorial de uno de
sus coterrAneos.
El espectAculo, por su colorido y
por la belleza traditional de los can-
tos y de la misica que se interpre-
tarA, atraerA seguramente a muchos
visitantes de la ciudad de Panama, de
las provincias y de la Zona del Canal.

Para que el anillo

no sea un yugo...

trimonio no sea la causa de un ac-
cidente lamentable, algunas empresas
permiten su uso siempre que lo modi-
fiquen en una forma sencilla y econ6-
mica. Cualquier joyero puede ranurar
el anillo en tres puntos, dos equidis-
tantes, en forma de escotadura y el otro
en forma abierta. Si el anillo se traba
en alguna pieza que sobresale, se abri-
rA por el tir6n que reciba, evitando
una lesi6n en el dedo. El grabado ilus-
tra la form en que se modifica el ani-
llo. No altera la apariencia del anillo
y es un trabajo que puede hacer cual-
quier joyero usando una sierra final pa-
ra metales.

Si se traba el anillo


1) Si el anillo queda muy apretado,
el joyero deberA agrandarlo al tamafio
2) Se hacen dos escotaduras en las
posiciones de 2:30 y 9:30 del reloj,
por la parte de adentro y a menos de
la mitad del espesor del anillo.
3) En la posici6n de 6:00 del reloj
se corta una ranura en Angulo recto
por la parte de adentro, a V3 del dia-
metro, tomando entonces una posici6n
oblicua por el % restante. (Si el ani-
1lo es una banda muy delgada esta ra-
nura puede hacerse diagonal y obli-
cuamente nada r, is.)
