Football Queens


Football queens from Canal Zone schools will be on hand for the annual
Football Jamboree tonight at Cristobal High School Stadium at Coco Solo.
Pre-game activities will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by three quarters of
football between the Canal Zone College, Cristobal and Balboa High
Schools. Shown at left above is Stephanie De Heart, daughter of Maj. and
Mrs. Edward W. De Heart, of Albrook AFB, who was selected recently
as queen at Balboa High School. At right, framed by the "victory bell" is
Ann Hirons, Cristobal's queen. Ann is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. N.
Hirons, of Coco Solo. Her father is employed with the Motor Transporta-
tion Division in Cristobal. It's a tradition at the school to ring this bell
whenever the football teams score a victory. A picture of Canal Zone
College queen Jeanne Marie Chance, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry
Chance, of Cardenas, appeared in last week's SPILLWAY.

The Canal Zone football season
will get underway tonight with the
annual Football Jamboree at Cris-
tobal High School Stadium in Coco
Ceremonies will begin at 6:25
p.m. with the arrival of jamboree
queens representing each of the
three competing teams, Canal Zone
College, Balboa High School, and
Cristobal High School. Came time
is 7 p.m.
Three quarters of football will
be played and entertainment is
planned after each quarter.
Unlike past years, the winner will
be the team which wins the most
quarters rather than on total points
scored. If two teams are tied, then
the team with the most points
between the teams that are tied
will be declared the champion.
A trophy will lIe presented to
the winning team.
Tickets can be bought from
school representative s or at the
ticket booth at the stadium.

Festivities Civic Councils Hear

Underway at Consolidation Plans

PtAe F:r

The Bocas del Toro Fair, one of
the five major regional fairs held
annually throughout the Republic
of Panama, opened September 18
and will run through September 21.
Located about 160 air miles
northeast of Panama City, the town
of Bocas del Toro comes alive for
the annual fair witl thousands of
visitors from the Canal Zone, Pan-
ama, and even neighboring Costa
Rica adding to the holiday atmo-
sphere that prevails until the closing
of the fair.
The Panama Canal and the mil-
itary components of the U.S. South-
ern Command are participating in
the Bocas del Toro Fair with ex-
hibits and displays.
T'he Panama Canal pavilion will
house a color photo display of Canal
scenes and an electrically-operated
map of the waterway and surround-
ing vicinity. Displays provided by

Plans for the consolidation of
Pacific side merchandise facilities
were outlined by Canal Zone Gov.
W. P. Leber at the U.S. Civic Coun-
cil Executive session held last week
The plan, which involves the con-
solidation of food and other sundries
presently carried at the Diablo and
Balboa Service Centers and the ex-
pansion of facilities at the Balboa
Retail Store, may occur in October.
Should work on the building altera-
tions be delayed enough to inter-
fere with pre-Christmas sales and
prove an inconvenience to custom-
ers, it would be postponed until
January, the Governor explained.
Balboa Retail Store Hours
The consolidation of the ner-
chandise facilities will provide serv-
ice 7 davs a week, 14 hours a (lay,
from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the first
floor of the Balboa Retail Store, for
the convenience of the Canal Zone
At the executive session, the first
one after the 3-month summer
recess, the Governor also referred
to President Nixon's announcement
of cuts in Federal spending. The
Governor stated that the Canal or-
ganization does not anticipate re-
duction in force in fiscal year 1970.
He told members of the Civic
Council that personnel ceilings will
be tight and more work will have
to be done with the same amount
of personnel, leaving lower priority
positions unfilled. He added that
retirements and terminations would
take care of any reduction necessary.
Officials Present
The meeting also was attended
by Lt. Cov. R. S. Hartline, Capt.
Donald A. Dertien, Executive Plan-
ning Chief, and L. A. Ferguson,
Supply and Community Service Bu-
reau Director, who was there briefly.
In the general discussion, Mrs.
Doris Sanders, president of the
Cristobal-Margarita-Brazos Heights
Civic Council, brought out the lack
of air-conditioning at Coco Solo
IHospital. Governor Leber noted im-
provements which have been made
at the hospital and said that air

that may be worn as a tie-tac, lapel

Son of C.Z. Couple Wins

2 Silver Stars in 2 Days

1st Lt. Richard Dennis Porrello,
of the Marine Corps, who continued
to lead his men although wounded
three times, won his second Silver
Star, the day after he won his first.
The Silver Star is the Nation's third
highest award for heroism and a
Defense Department spokesman
said that it is "extremely unusual"
for a man to win two of the medals
on consecutive days.
The second Silver Star was pinned
on Lieutenant Porrello by Terrence
Cardinal Cooke, Archbishop of New
York and military vicar of Roman
Catholics in the Armed Forces, Sep-
tember 11, at the U.S. Naval Hlos-
pital at St. Albans, N.Y., where he
is recovering from the wounds he
received in Vietnam.
In a Vietnam battle, which took
place February 29, Porrello, al-
though wounded, continued to lead
his men and refused to he evacuated

until all his wounded marines had
gone first. Doctors removed a piece
of schrapnel the size of a pebble

conditioning has been considered
and was deferred due to money
limitations. lHe said, however, that
the project would be considered
in the future. Mrs. Sanders also
brought up the question of the use
of the Margarita gym which was
closed right after the summer re-
creation program. Governor Leber
said it was a problem of personnel
and Mrs. Sanders suggested that
personnel from the play shelter
could be used to man the gym.

Lack of Security
Mrs. Darleen Ashby, president of
the Pacific Civic Council, brought
up the problem of insecurity of
glass louvers in doors and windows
in Los Rios housing. She noted that
the cost of grillwork quoted by
Panama Canal is too high and asked
if individuals who install grills
would be reimbursed when they
move. No reimbursements can be
made. She was told, however, dead
bolts (key operated from outside)
will be installed on request.
Mrs. Ashby also asked if the
SPCA could receive benefits from
the United Fund. The .Governor
said this should be brought up with
the Budget Committee of the
United Fund. She also wondered if
the military couldn't be asked to
share in financing the SPCA since
most of the animals kept there
belong to the military. Governor
Leber thought Mrs. Ashby's sug-
gestion merited consideration.
New business discussed at the
executive session included transpor-
tation of cars on the SS Cristobal.
the question of PanCanal assuming
responsibility of a skating rink,
housing assignments, air and water
pollution, planting of trees, condi-
tion of the zoo at Summit Gardens
and other subjects.

Shipping of Cars
Mrs. Sanders remarked that some
private cars are shipped as deck
cargo on the SS Cristobal and
charges are the same as hold cargo.
She asked if Panama Canal would
come up with a cheaper rate for
the deck shipped cars.
Commenting on the increased
activity in the check cashing serv-
ice, Mrs. M :ajel Reinhemer, repre-
sentative, Cristobal-Margarita- Bra-
zos IHeights Civic Council, sug-
gestedl an official paymaster at retail
stores to cash checks on paay s.
Mrs. Reinheimner also noted that
there are no bachelor quarters on
the Atlantic side and no quarters
for retirees to live in while they
are preparing to leave. She sug-
gested a motel type arrangement
to accommodate such personnel.
Capt. W. A. Reinheimer of the
Cristohal-Margarita-Brazos Heights
Civic Council, brought up the mat-
ter of air and water pollution and
requested that a pollution control
officer be appointed. He said that
oil pollution has increased on the
Atlantic side and that a control
officer besides men in boats soaking
up the oil with straw would help
solve the problem. Hle said also that
lie would like to see trees replanted
on the road from Cristobal to Gatun
and from Cristobal to Coco Solo.
Captain Reiniheimer brought up the

Police Officer James Dunn, driver training examiner, shows a copy of
motorcycle safety booklet, The Invisible Man, to Paul F. Buehler, while
his father, Capt. Howard Buehler, assistant captain of the Balboa Port,
looks on. These booklets are being distributed to all Canal Zone cyclists

PC Officials

To help reduce accidents involv-
ing motorcycles, scooters, and motor
bikes, the Safety Branch has begun
distribution of two pamphlets to
operators of these vehicles. Appli-
cants for new or renewal licenses
will be given copies by the License
Section of the Civil Affairs Bureau.
One of the publications, a 12-
page booklet, The Invisible Man,
which is profusely illustrated to
attract and hold the reader's inter-
est, has much useful information
presented in a chatty, informal
The other publication, printed in
flyer format, is designed for the
parents of young cyclists as well as
for the vehicle operators. The par-
ents are advised of the inherent
dangers in the operation of motor-
cycles, scooters, and motorbikes and
are advised to encourage their chil-
dren to wear protective helmets and
to make that a condition of their
approval of his obtaining a license.
The other side of the flyer lists
motorcycle safe driving hints that
are equally applicable to motorbike
and motor scooter operation.
The Safety Branch, the Police

By Emily J. Price

The Americans; a Social History
of the United States, 1587-1914,
by J. C. Furnas is an intelligent,
readable work of history with
politics left out. It traces national
attitudes and practices for 3 cen-
turies from food to transportation
to architecture. Divided into eight
sections, each personified by a
figure well known in his period,
the book tells the social history of
the United States in all its interest
and oddity.
Mab Wilson, after a career of
writing for and editing VOcUE,
turned to advertising and working
for Bergdorf Coodman. She has
now written a book called Gems,
containing a history of precious
stones and some marvelous photo-
graphs showing the beauty of
rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and
other glittering gems.
An unusual sort of book is Laura
Fermi's Illustrious Immigrants. It
describes the migration of intellec-
tuals from Europe to the United
States from 1930 to 1941, the orea-
nized assistance that was available
to exiles, and the achievements of

some of them. Many of the names
are famous ones, Einstein, Bruno
Walter, Stravinsky, Paul Tillich,
Marcel Duchamp, and Mrs. Fermi's
husband, Enrico Fermi, Nobel Prize
winner and "architect of the atomic
Jorge Amado, Brazil's most fam-
ous novelist, has written a funny
and delightful story in Dofia Flor
and her Two Husbands. When Dofia
Flor, owner of a cooking school and
a fine cook herself, is left a widow,
strange things begin to happen in
the Brazilian state of Bahia. This is
a comic book, rich with the flavor
of life in Brazil.
A good new mystery is Laurence
Lafore's Nine Seven Juliet. It is the
story of a retired professor and his
recently crippled 16-year-old ne-
phew who are jolted out of their
various preoccupations by the ac-
tivities of a mysterious airplane
which leads them to the discovery
of a corpse. Lots of information
about light planes and the psycho-
logical impact of flying on the boy
make this book interesting.

at the District Court in Ancon.
Born in Merikarvia, Finland,
where winter temperatures dip as
low as 40 degrees below zero,
she is now living in Panama and
admits that adjusting to the climate
took a little time. Her husband,
Bert, is a professor of geology at
the University of Panama.
Mrs. Shelton didn't make the
change in one big leap, however,
but left Finland first for the United
States where she attended Oregon
State University and received her
master in science degree in 1951.
There she met her husband, who
was working on his master's degree
in geology. They were married in
June of 1951 and have two children,
both born in the United States.
Leila, 14, was born in Arkansas, and
Bert Gustav, 12, in Texas.
Although Mrs. Shelton misses her
homeland, especially the sunmers
in Finland, when the "midnight
sun" shines so brightly no other
light is needed, and the skiing, she
finds much to admire in the tropics.
She mentioned in particular, "the
friendliness of the people and the
beautiful tropical trees and flowers."
Since she wanted her children to
know Finland, she took them there
for a year, 3 years ago while her
husband was working for the Office
of Interoceanic Canal Studies and
spending much of his time in
Darien. The children attended the
local schools and had to learn Fin-
nish, which their mother admits is
a formidable task. In addition to

Finnish, Mrs. Shelton speaks Ger-
man, English, Swedish, and Spanish.
Both Swedish and Finnish are
spoken by the Finns. In addition to
her present job, Mrs. Shelton serves
as vice consul for Finland, a posi-
tion she has held for the past 7
She succeeds the late Louis Par-
fait who, until his death in April,
at 80 years of age, had been the
law librarian since 1939.


The First Festival of Movie Shorts
will be held in Panama October 25
to 29. It is being organized by Ar-
mando R. Mora, president of the
Ariel Cine Club of Panama as a
purely cultural and artistic event.
Residents of Panama and the
Canal Zone may participate in the
film shorts festival which will in-
clude silent and talkies in 8 mm.,
16 mm., or 35 mm. films on any sub-
ject or theme. The films must be
registered in the festival before

tained in several photo shops in
Panama City, at the Panama Insti-
tute of Art, at the Estudiante Book-

Building at Balboa Heights.
The films may be turned in at
the Estudiante Bookstore and a re-
ceipt will be given by the Ariel
Cine Club which promises to return

Dice la Policia de la Zona del
Canal que muchas personas han sal-

desarrollado el htibito de reducir
la velocidad de sus vehiculos y de
mirar en ambas direcciones, cuando
se acercan a un cruce de ferrocarril,
aunque no haya algin tren a la
vista ni est6n operando las sefiales
de peligro.
T'ambien dice la Policia de la
Zona del Canal que es muy dificil
escuchar las sefiales de peligro y
los pitazos de la locomotora, cuan-
do se tienen los vidrios de las ven-
tanas subidos y se estA escuchando
misica dentro del autom6vil. Por
1o tanto, en los cruces de ferroca-
rril de la Zona del Canal existen
peligros extra, constituidos por los
autos con acondicionamiento de
aire, con radios y con reproducto-

Acreditan Nuevamente Banco

De Sangre del Hosp. Gorgas

Hace poco, el Banco de Sangre
del Hospital Gorgas fue vuelto a
acreditar para los pr6ximos 3 ailos
por la Asociaci6n Americana de
Bancos de Sangre, como uno que
mantiene o sobrepasa las altas nor-
mas impuestas por esa organiza-
ci6n. CC6mo fue possible alcanzarlo?
Y, dcuAl es su significado para los
pacientes y la comunidad?
Un personal excelente es el fac-
tor principal en la operaci6n exitosa
de un banco de sangre. En su cali-
dad de donante, usted probable-
mente conocerA a la Srta. Eneida
Si6 la talentosa tecn6loga m6dica a
cargo del Banco de Sangre. Su res-
ponsabilidad direct son las muchas
pruebas y archives que mantienen
en actividad al Banco. Ricardo Va-
llarino, Jefe Tecn6logo M6dico del
Laboratorio, siempre esti a la orden
para absolver consultas y, en los
moments critics, su ayuda siem-
pre esta a la orden. Y siempre se
asegura de que la t6cnica, los abas-
tos y reactivos sean de lo mejor.
El Dr. Henry M. Bowers, Jr., muy
consagrado y de conocimientos enci-
clop6dicos, es el Subjefe de Servi-
cios de Laboratorio y el pat6logo
profesionalmente responsible por el
Banco de Sangre. Y tambi6n estin
dos docenas de personas que a toda
hora del dia y de la noche se en-
frentan a las necesidades de sangre
(lqe se puedan presentar.
Un trabajo concienzudo es el
segundo factor important en el
6xito del Banco de Sangre. Muchos
donantes se han dado cuenta del
detallado cuestionario, de las prue-
bas de sangre, de las medidas de la
presi6n de la sangre, de la cuida-
dosa preparaci6n del brazo, de la
meticulosa atenci6n que se pone a
la t6cnica y, por supuesto, de los
15 minutes de espera que siguen a

iManeje con cuidado!

lCuidese de los demas

nuis frecuentes en

miis largos!

cada donaci6n de sangre. Muchos
de estos requisitos se dirigen a sal-
vaguardar la seguridad y el bienes-
tar del donante lo mismo que del
beneficiario. Otras pruebas de san-
gre determinan el Tipo y factor Rh
de la sangre. Existen posibilidades
de que el donante posea un Tipo A,
Rh positive, o un Tipo O, Rh posi-
tivo de sangre y que el paciente
tenga el mismo tipo y factor Rh en
la sangre. Pero en el banco de san-
gre no se puede trabajar a base de
posibilidades y la sangre debe ser
cuidadosamente identificada. Otra
muestra se analiza en busca de evi-
dencias de enfermedades y otra
muestra mis se analiza para deter-
minar la presencia de lo que se
llama "anticuerpos irregulares", sus-
tancias que existen en el cuerpo y
que pueden ser en extreme morta-
les cuando las recibe la persona que
no deberia.
Las unidades de sangre deben ser
colocadas en un refrigerator donde
se regular cuidadosamuente la tem-
peratura y se la mantiene cerca del
punto de congelaci6n. Deben lle-
varse registros cuidadosos y deta-
llados de cada una de las pruebas
Ilevadas a cabo, lo mismo que de
cada paso efectuado en cada prue-
ba, al igual que se deben Ilevar ar-
chivos de los donantes, de los be-
neficiarios y de cualquiera reacci6n
sospechosa. Esos archives constitu-
yen el tercer factor important.
Hace 3 afios, el inspector dej6 cier-
tos formularios, recomendAndolos
para cierta clase de archives. Este
ailo, trajo nuevos y mejorados for-
mularios, mas largos y mis detalla-
dos. Los anAlisis no han cambiado,
pero el trabajo de oficina si.
El cuarto factor important en el
exito de la operaci6n del Banco de
Sangre es el deseo de adelantar en
la tecnologia, el de utilizar m6todos
nuevos y mejores. Arriba se hacia
referencia a los antlisis en busca
de "anticuerpos irregulares". El
m6todo que se utilizaba anterior-
mente dejaba pasar un anticuerpo
en 17.000 pruebas. Ahora se ha
adoptado un procedimiento que ha
rebajado la proporci6n a 1 en
34.000. Es algo que vale la pena.
Y algo mis: en los iltimos 8 ailos,
en el Banco de Sangre del Hospital
Gorgas no ha habido un s6lo caso
en que se haya dado sangre equi-
