Counseling Now

Given by CSC
A change in position on pre-
retirement counseling of Federal
employees "from one of neutrality
to one of promoting, encouraging,
and assisting in the establishment
of retirement planning services
throughout the Federal community"
has been announced by the U.S.
Civil Service Commission.
The Commission's new policy on
this pre-retirement service came as
a result of a research study by the
Bureau of Retirement, Insurance,
and Occupational Health. The re-
port on employees nearing retire-
ment and those recently retired
revealed that they liked the idea
of a retirement planning program.

retired employees believe that an
effective retirement planning pro-
gram could help people enjoy re-

Cristobal Master

Asked To Write

"Excuse" Letter

Masters of ships, who according
to tradition safeguard the lives of
their passengers, are from time to
time called upon to perform tasks
above and beyond the call of duty.
Such was the case, recently, when
Capt. J. B. Krieg, Master of the SS
Cristobal, was asked to write an
"excuse" for a student who would be
arriving late to school.
The unique request was made by
Cristobal passenger Margaret Baker,
Balboa High School student on her
way to attend a National Science
Foundation Summer Linguistics In-
stitute at Northern Arizona Univer-
sity at Flagstaff. Due to unforeseen
circumstances, the arrival in New
Orleans of the Cristobal was delayed
several hours causing Miss Baker to
miss her scheduled airplane flight.
As a result, she was late for the
June 9 opening of the summer
Miss Baker is the daughter of

Twenty Eight Stories by Frances
Gray Patton are short stories, many
of which have appeared in THE
NEW YORKER. Warm and appealing
in tone, these stories are about
very real people including that well-
known schoolteacher, Miss Dove.
The story of the controversial
supersonic transport is told in Don
Dwiggins' The SST; here it comes,
ready or not. The challenges of the
program are vast for technology,
business, and for politics. The
accomplishments so far and the
great questions that remain to be
answered are set down meticulously
Charlotte Armstrong's new mys-
tery Seven Seats to the Moon has
a very complicated plot. J. Middle-
ton Little's calm suburban existence
is shattered when he accidentally
overhears a clue to an earthshaking
plot. He is offered "seven seats to
the moon" if he will keep quiet, but
then the plot changes and he is more
upset than ever.

los espectadores los aplauden freniticamente. Es costumbre que data
de los tiempos de la Colonia. En Chitr6 y Aguadulce hay,' ademis, corri-

Aqui ven a la gr6a DD-371, completamente reacondi-
cionada por los miembros del personal de talleres de la
Division Industrial de Mount Hope. Nuestros lectores
recordarAn que en la edici6n del 2 de mayo del SPILL-
WAY les ofrecimos algunas vistas de c6mo lucia entonces

Hace 27 afios que Sidney Camp-
bell lleg6 al Istmo, procedente de
Jamaica, contratado para trabajar
con la vieja Divisi6n de Comisa-
riatos del Canal de PanamA.
Hace 2 semanas regres6 nueva-
mente a PanamA, done no habia
estado durante los iltimos 25 afios.
Durante esos 5 lustros ha traba-
jado en su pais natal y en 1964, la
Armada de los Estados Unidos lo
emple6 como cantinero jefe en el
Club de Contrameaestres, en la Base
Naval de los Estados Unidos de la
Bahia de GuantAnamo, Cuba. Alli
presta servicios actualmente.
Campbell ha quedado sorprendi-
do con los enormes cambios que ha
encontrado en Panama. "La fiebre
de construcciones que aqui existed es
tremenda", dice entusiasmado, "hace
25 alios, la ciudad de PanamA ape-
nas si Ilegaba a Las Sabanas, donde
terminaba el tranvia. Ahora ni existed
el tranvia y uno no se da cuenta de
d6nde quedan Las Sabanas. Pana-
ma es una ciudad en crecimieno.
El Hotel El PanamA, El Continen-
tal, el Edificio Avesa, los que estan
construyendo en Punta Paitilla y
otros lugares le dan a PanamA el
aspect de una gran ciudad que
muy poco se parece a la PanamA
que yo conocia".
Pero Campbell vino a Panama a
ver viejos lugares y a saludar a sus
compafieros del viejo Comisariato
de La Boca y de Balboa. Asi que se
dirigi6 a La Boca en primer lugar.
El edificio del viejo Comisariato
queda alli todavia, pero convertido
en la Imprenta del Canal de Pana-
ma. Tambi6n queda el edificio de
la vieja Iglesia Catblica de Santa
Teresita, convertido ahora en la
Iglesia Bautista de La Boca. Todo
lo demas ha cambiado enormnemen-
te. "El viejo caserio de nadera ha
quedado convertido en una ciudad
jardin", comenta Campbell, "y la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal
no se parece en nada a la vieja
Escuela Normal de La Boca".
Otra de las sorpresas que se llev6
fue cuando lo llevaron al otro lado
del Canal. "Ibamos por una calzada
muy bien iluminada", dice Camp-
bell, "y como no vela el viejo
'ferry' por ningin lado, pregunt6
para d6nde ibamos. La respuesta fue
que estAbamos viajando sobre el
gran Puente Thatcher Ferry, que
tambien Ilaman el Puente de Las
Amdricas". Era de noche y por eso
Campbell no habia visto la imnen-
sa mole de un costo de $20 millones
qilue cruza sobre el Canal.
La semana pasada estuvo de vi-
sita en el Edificio de Administra-
c6n de Balboa Heights, desde donde
contempl6 admirado lia magnitud

completamente desmantelada. El trabajo de reacondi-
cionamiento ha costado unos $80.000 y se consider que
ha alargado la vida de la gr6a en 25 aiios. Una nueva
de la misma capacidad de la DD-371 costaria alrededor
de $400.000. Se ha logrado un ahorro substantial.

del puente sobre el Canal. "El Edi-
ficio de Administraci6n se ve igual
por fuera", dice, "pero ha sido me-
jorado enormemente por dentro.
Esti bellisimo". Luego fue al Alma-
c6n de Balboa y al Centro de Ser-
vicios donde todavia hay muchos
de sus compafieros. Alli se dio gusto
hablando de los viejos tiempos.
Otro lugar que estuvo buscando
y no encontr6 fue el viejo Hip6dro-
mo de Juan Franco. "Ahora esta
convertido en una urbanizaci6n he-
Ilisima", comenta, jamss lo hubiera
El jueves paasado Sidney Camp-
bell regres6 a Jamaica, despucs de
haber pasado breves dias en Pana-
mA, en los que no pudo saludar a
todos sus amigos, por lo que soli-
cit6 que lo hicibramos a nombre de
61 en estas lines. Declar6 que para
los XI Juegos Centroamericanos y
del Caribe, el ailo entrante, vendri
a pasarse 2 meses acA y tambi6n ira
al Interior.
Campbell naci6 en Jamaica, donde
hizo su escuela primaria. La secun-
daria la curs6 en la Kingston Tech-
nical High School. Al graduarse,
trabaj6 con una gran compafnia de
transports, la McCauly's Transpor-
tation Co., en Kingston, hasta que
vino a PanamA, a la edad de 22
afios. Aqui prest6 servicios por 7
meses en el viejo Comisariato de
La Boca y luego, por 18 meses, en
el de Balboa. Fue entonces cuando
regres6 a su tierra natal.

Sidney Campbell (a la izquierda), actualmente empleado en la Base Naval
de los Estados Unidos en la Bahia de Guantanamo, Cuba, se encuentra en
la escalinata del Edificio de Administraci6n de Balboa Heights, con Stanley
Hall, empleado del Ramo de Reclamos del Canal de PanamA, viejo amigo
al que no veia desde hace 25 afios. Campbell trabaj6, de 1942 a 1944, con
la vieja Divisi6n de Comisariatos del Canal de PanamA y la semana pasada
estuvo en el Istmo visitando amistades y volviendo a conocer a Panami.

La fiesta que el personal de la
Division de Escuelas de la Zona del
Canal ofreci6 como despedida a
Alfred E. Osborne, en el Sal6n
Roosevelt, de la Casa de Hu6spe-
des Tivoli, con motivo de su jubi-
laci6n, fue magnifica y algunos de
sus puntos sobresalientes han Ilega-
do hasta los oidos de quien se en-
carga de escribir estas lines.

Lo principal de la fiesta fue el
panorama". Dicen que estaba en-
cantador. Desde el comienzo con la
"IIora del Coctel", se not6 la be-
lleza de las damas. Todas estaban
encantadoras. Entre ellas estaban la
Srta. Gladys Urefia, las hermanas
Dorothy y Alva Piper, las Sras. Sara
de Lawson, Eladia de Jurado y
Emelina de Hurley, la Srta. Norma
Blackman y la Sra. Maria F. de
Aldridge, quien acababa de contraer
matrimonio y fue directamente de
la ceremonia a la fiesta, en uni6n
de su esposo Calvin Aldridge,
miembro de la Policia de la Zona
del Canal.

Durante el agasajo hubo un pro-
grama especial, en el cual sirvi6 de
maestra de ceremonies la Srta. Alva
Piper. El program consisti6 en una
representaci6n del caricter de Os-
borne, en las diferentes etapas de
su vida al servicio de las escuelas
de la Zona del Canal.
0 a
La primera imitaci6n estuvo a
cargo de la Sra. Ethlyne de Faw-
cett, esposa de Ellis L. Fawcett,
quien ocupa ahora la posici6n que
desempefiaba Osborne. La Sra. de
Fawcett hizo una genial imitaci6n
del agasajado, cuando en sus afios
mozos, era maestro en la vieja
Escuela Normal de La Boca.

Luego le toc6 a Pablo Kirven,
professor de matemiticas en la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Paraiso, hacer
una imitaci6n de Osborne ya como
supervisor de instrucci6n, durante
los famosos dias de la Escuela de
Chiva Chiva.

El Professor Leslie Thomas, de la
Escuela Secundaria de Rainbow
City, personific6 a Osborne como
el ciudadano siempre al servicio de
la comunidad y al amigo de los
amigos que siempre ha sido durante
toda su vida.
o a a
David Spears, Asistente del Su-
perintendente, a cargo de las Es-
cuclas Secundarias Estadouniden-
ses, lo imit6 en su actuaci6n del Jefe
Grande, ya en calidad de Superin-
tendente Auxiliar, a cargo de las
escuelas latinoamericanas. Ese fue
el punto final y Spears fue muy
aplaudido, al igual que todos los
demies que tomaron part en la

Tambi6n supimos que los asis-
tentes al agasajo le regalaron a Os-
borne un finisimo reloj de pulso,

Muchos de ustedes se habran pre-
guntado qui6n fue la persona que
nos dio el soplo sobre los aspects
salientes del agasajo a Osborne.
Nosotros no se lo diremos, pero si

Ah . y se nos olvidaba. El co-
mentario general de los que asis-

tieron fue que habia que felicitar
a Luther Norwood, supervisor de
banquetes de la Casa de Huespedes
Tivoli, quien se encarg6 de todos los
preparativos; a George Thorbourne,
quien esa noche era supervisor de
banquetes de turn, y a David E.
Milton, jefe de camareros durante
la cena.

Y por supuesto que tenemos que
mencionar el magnifico trabajo de
los camareros que atendieron las
mesas durante ese gran event
social. Fueron ellos: Audmah Menal,
Alvin Laidlaw, Roberto Worrell,
Clifford Niles, Alfonso Alvey y Bel-
field Burnett.

Y no se puede prescindir de nom-
brar al "Chef" Rupert Hilton, y a sus
ayudantes Elias Watson y Berta
Narciso, quienes hicieron milagros
en la cocina.

Los organizadores Audley Webs-
ter, Srta. Emily Butcher, DuBois
Andrews, George V. Richards y Elsi-
nora Lynch, y los que Asistieron a
la cena dijeron que el mend fue
variadisimo, de primera y suma-
