istrative assistant/liaison, of the bu-
reau, were paid special tribute by
the Chamber of Commerce for their
cooperation with the Colon business
community. During the tribute it
was noted that the Atlantic side
Canal officials "on countless oc-
casions contributed to the strength-
ening of the spirit of good neigh-
bors initiated by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt."
Captain Jones was presented a
framed mola depicting the Seal of
the United States and Sollas re-
ceived an honor scroll as tokens of
appreciation for fostering better

Storehouses To Close
To Take Inventory
Sections B (Balboa) and X (Cris-
tobal) will be closed for inventory
all day Tuesday, February 10, and
again for recount on Monday,
March 2.
Emergency issues will be made
only when requested at division
head level. All units should obtain
sufficient operating supplies prior
to the closing dates to protect their
needs during the periods the sec-
tions will be closed.
Sales from the sections under
inventory or recount will be pro-
hibited during the closings.

The annual service awards cere-
mony, tentatively scheduled for
March, will honor more employees
this year than any time in the
Canal's history. A total of 53 per-
sons will receive 40-year awards
and 428 employees will receive
30-year awards. This group repre-
sents 14,960 years of service with
the Panama Canal.

Mutual of Omaha, underwriters
of group life and medical insurance
programs for Canal employees, re-
cently moved its offices to the Metro

Balboa High School is listed
among the "good secondary schools
abroad" in an article in a recent
INSTALLATIONS. The magazine is a
publication for multinational man-
agement with engineering, financ-
ing, purchasing, construction, and
operational responsibility. The ar-
ticle, "College Admission and the
Student Applicant From Abroad,"
is by Alison Rhoads Schlechter,
a member of Wellesley's admis-
sion staff. She examines the pros
and cons of secondary schools
abroad and gives suggestions as to
what overseas parents should con-
sider in choosing secondary school
education. She writes, "Although it
is difficult to generalize about
schools abroad, certain ones have
had notable success in sending
many of their graduates on to the
most competitive U.S. colleges and
universities." Balboa High School
appeared under the Latin American
listing as one of the schools which
impressed the writer favorably.

Work is now nearing completion
on the installation of underground
cables along Roosevelt Avenue and
Gaillard Highway. Part of the con-
tinuing program to improve elec-
trical service, this phase is under
contract to L. R. Sommer Corp. It
will provide additional 12,000 volt
capacity to the P.A.D. area in
Ancon and additional 2,400 volt
capacity to Gorgas Hospital, Tivoli

areas. A new type substation also is
programed for installation within
the next 2 years in the Gorgas Hos-
pital area. When this is done, the
new 2,400 volt cable will be con-
verted to 12,000 volt operation to
serve the new substation.

Regular overhaul of the 25,000
kilowatt steam turbine generator at
Miraflores Generating Station was
completed last month after a 6 week
shutdown. Included in the work
was the replacement. of all tubing
which showed major erosion dam-
age in the economizer section of
the boiler, and installation of access
doors in the ends of the economizer
to facilitate future inspection and
tube repair. Assisting and advising
the Panama Canal personnel during
the overhaul were service engineers
from Foster-Wheeler Corp. and
Westinghouse Electric Corp. Hugh
M. Thomas, Jr., was in charge of
the mechanical work for the Pan-
ama Canal, and Milton Horter, Jr..
was in charge of the electrical work.
This unit was placed in service
in March 1966 as a base load plant
and comprises approximately 15
percent of the Panama Canal's
available generating capacity. It
has been used continuously since
its installation except for an inspec-
tion and maintenance shutdown in
August 1968 after it had been in
service 16 months. At that time
emergency repairs were made nec-
essary by leaks in the economizer

The new Balboa Telephone Cen-
tral Office being built on Roosevelt
Avenue opposite the Balboa High
School, is now more than 12 per-
cent complete and is scheduled for
completion by July 23, 1970. The
actual service date for the-new cen-
tral office, however, is set for
April 15, 1971. The period between
July 1970 and April 1971 will be
required for the installation of
switching equipment in the new
building and completion of under-
ground cable and conduit systems
extending from the new office and
connecting with the present facili-
ties. Construction cf the office began
in October 1969 with the driving
of pilings and clearing of the work
site. The contract was awarded to
the Dillon Construction Co. and
Arawak Corp.

Maj. Gen. Robert B. Shira, Assist-

the l1th International Odontology
Congress held from January 25 to
30 at the Faculty of Odontology of
the University of Panama. General
Shira cooperated closely with Con-

The Engineering Division is con-
ducting a land use survey in all
Panama Canal townsites plus land
in other active use. The purpose is
to take an inventory of usable va-
cant land and to classify this land
according to its appropriate poten-
tial usage. The survey was started
recently in Ancon and will move
northward until its completion on
the Atlantic side in early May. Stu-
dent assistants are doing the field
work and have been issued letter
of identification.

Sharks Make Profitable

Sideline for Fishermen

Like the Chicago packers who
use everything except the squeal of
the pig, Japanese fishermen can
make use of almost everything on
a fish.
Take shark fins for instance.
Who wants 'em?
Chinese merchants in Japan,
that's who. They use them to make
the famous oriental shark fin soup.
But the shark fins must be dried
and packed before they can be
taken back to Japan and sold. So
as a sideline activity, the Japanese
fishing boats that come into Pan-
ama and the Canal Zone with tuna,
may also have a load of shark fins
Sharks often are caught by the
fishing boats along with tuna and
other edible fish. But the fins are
the only part of the shark used by
the Japanese and their Chinese

SS Cristobal


Is Changed
One round trip of the SS Cris-
tobal between New Orleans and
Cristobal will be canceled to per-
mit repairs to the superheaters of
both boilers of the ship.
The cancellation will involve the
sailing from New Orleans south-
bound April 3 and the northbound
sailing April 9 from Cristobal to
New Orleans. The regular 1970
schedule will resume with the sail-
ing April 17 from New Orleans.

Trip to San Bias
A trip to San Blas February 28
is being planned by the Atlanite
Newcomers Club. Cost of the trip
will be $23 and interested persons

Musical Show Opens
Tonight at Balboa
"Way Back in the Sixties," a
Canal Zone Dance Theatre produc-
tion will be presented at the Balboa
Theater tonight.
Among the talented artists ap-
pearing in the benefit show are
Miss Barbara Stolts, Johann Meyer,
Bettie Dillon, and singer John Con-
nell with his guitar.
STickets are 75 cents and pro-
ceeds will go to the Shriner's Crip-
pled Children's Hospital Fund. Walt
Disney's "Fighting Prince of Done-
gal" will be shown and is included
in the price of admission. The stage
show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Canal waterfront authorities,
who have been watching the shark
fin drying process for years, have
come up with a recipe for shark
fin soup-that is if you happen to
have a dried shark fin lying around.
Take one shark fin. Boil 1 hour.
Drain and boil again for several
hours with a little baking soda.
Drain and soak in warm clear
water. Add the cooked fin to a good
red soup stock and heat.

Women Bowlers

Plan Tourney
The Panama Canal Zone Women's
Bowling Association will hold its
29th Annual City Tournament at
Balboa Bowling Center the week-
ends of February 7-8 and Feb-
ruary 14-15.
The team events will take place
February 7-8 and doubles and
singles the following weekend. The
schedule is posted in all Canal Zone
bowling alleys and will be pub-
lished in the English language news-
papers in Panama City.
All lady bowlers are asked to
check the schedules for dates and
times of their events.

Effective immunization for scores
of diseases that are killers or crip-
plers are available through the
Canal Zone Community Health
Centers. And they are free to all
persons eligible for Canal Zone
health privileges.
The Canal Zone Health Bureau
reminds residents that although
they live in a tropical paradise, there
are still diseases around that can be
dangerous if the proper immuniza-
tion program is not followed.
Colonel Gorgas settled the matter
of yellow fever and malaria some
years ago and the present Division
of Sanitation keeps residents safe
so long as they remain in sanitated
areas but immunity to other diseases
does not end there.
There is still enough diptheria
and tetanus to keep immunization
shots necessary. And don't forget,
the Health Bureau people warn,
that whooping cough and measles
are killers and cripplers of young
One can't over look polio either.
Smallpox plagues our Brazilian
neighbors and there always is a
possibility that some infected per-
son will enter into the commu-
nity. Typhoid isn't common any
more but scores of persons were
exposed to it on a ship that passed
through the Canal not long ago and
is now under quarantine in Van-
couver. Campers and hunters do

taminated water and food.
Rubella or German measles is
still a real threat to non-immune
pregnant women. In the 1964-65
epidemic in the United States,
approximately 20,000 babies were
born with either brain damage,
blindness, or heart defects.
Various kinds of "flu," including
the Hong Kong type, sweep the
country about every 3 to 5 years.
It takes its toll of oldsters and those
with heart or lung disease.
The Health Bureau suggests that
residents talk to the Public Health
nurse in the Community Health
Center nearest home. She has access
to the supervision of the doctors of
the Division of Preventive Medicine
whose business it is to protect the
public health.

V. Richards dijo que: "El Premio
Cientifico Bausch & Lomb es espe-
cialmente significativo. Hace posi-
ble el reconocimiento del estudian-
tc graduando sobresaliente que
tiene las calificaciones mias altas en
temas cientificos".

Pepe nos dice:

Dudar para precauerse


"NO ES ORO TODO LO QUE RELUCE", dice un antiguo refran y puede apli-
carse a muchas situaciones. En la prevenci6n de accidents quien dude se pro-
tegerA mejor que quien confie en las apariencias. Es lo que nos dice Pepe. Y
para demos,trarlo, nos cuenta lo siguiente:
Todos los que manejan saben que muchos automovilistas hacen sefiales que
despubs no siguen porque las hicieron inadvertidainente o porque en el iltimo
segundo cambiaron de idea. Mi amigo, Juan Pedraza, de San Agustin, en Flori-
da, lo sabe por propia experiencia.
Juan manejaba un cami6n de reparto cuando leg6 a una intersecci6n. Vio
que por la izquierda venia un autom6vil cuyas sefiales indicaban que iba a do-
blar a la derecha. Como no habia m;as autom6viles en la via, 61 se dispuso a
arrancar para cruzarla. iCuIl no serial su asombro al ver en frente de el el auto-
m6vil, cuyas luces seguian indicando su intenci6n de doblar a la derecha!
Fren6 lo mas rapidamente que pudo y gracias a que apenas si habia arranca-
do, pudo detener si cami6ii a unos centimetros del autom6vil.
Esta fue una buena lecci6n para Juan y desde ese dia, no confia en las apa-
riencias. Ahora, cuando maneja su camion de reparto, no se apura y espera pa-
cientemente para confirmar que lo que ve es rcalmente cierto. Esta regla de
seguridad es igualmente Aitil para los que trabajan en maiquinias o equipos de ac-
cionamiento el6ctrico. No basta con career que la miquina esta parada, cuando
uno quiere hacer algin cambio. Hay que comprobarlo para no exponerse inne-
cesariamente 9

celebr6 la competencia intercolegial
ie pista y campo entire Pariaso y
Rainbow City, logrando los iltitios
6 triunfos por 3 de Paraiso.
Tambi6n hubo una exhibici6n del
equipo Olimpico de Panamla.
Los profesores que organizaron
estos events durante la Semana de
Educaci6n Fisica fueron: Stanley
Loney, HeIman Castillo, Henry
"Oscar" Jones y Carlota Phillips.

Como ganador del Premio Cien-
tifico Honorario, Audley es eligible
para competir por una Beca Cien-
tifica Bausch & Lomb en la Uni-
versidad de Rochester. Los premios
se basan en el merito, pero el esti-
pendio se basa en la necesidad y
alcanza hasta el pago complete de
la cnsellanza.
El Premio Cientifico-una bonita

mas de 8.500 escuelas participan-
tes. Las encuostas indican que mas
