theme of the 20th annual observance
of Engineers' Week, February 22
to 28. Sponsored by the Canal Zone
Society of Professional Engineers,
this year's program will emphasize
the role of engineers in solving tech-
nological problems for human needs
in areas such as natural resources,
pollution control, conservation, and
In a proclamation signed recently,
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber de-
signated the week as National En-
gineers' Week in the Canal Zone.
The same proclamation sets aside
February 27 as Engineers' and
Architects' Day.
Participating in the observation
of this year's events also are the
Panama Section of the American
Society of Civil Engineers, the
Canal Zone Post of the Society of
American Military Engineers, the
Panama and Canal Zone Chapter of
the American Society of Heating,
Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning
Engineers, and the Panama Society
of Engineers and Architects.
A number of special events have
been scheduled for Engineers'

System To Be


Children under the age of 17 will
not be admitted to adult-classified
movies in Panama Canal theaters,
starting March 1, unless they are
seniors in a Canal Zone high school
or are accompanied by parents or
legal guardians.
The change was approved by
Gov. W. P. Leber recently upon a
unanimous recommendation by the
Executive Committee for Youth-
Family Community Relations. A
newly-devised youth identification
card system will be used to imple-
ment the Panama Canal movie re-
striction and to control the sale of
alcohol to minors. It is unlawful to
sell liquor to persons under 21 and
beer to those under 18 years of age
in the Canal Zone.
The Panama Canal film classifica-
tion system, which is presently ad-
visory only, is a composite of sev-
eral trade classification ratings, with
the PARENTS MAGAZINE ratings used
to resolve close decisions. The Canal
guide provides for three classifica-
tions: A, adults; Y, young people 12
to 16; C, children 8 to 12. The
Executive Committee recommended
that the Canal system be continued
in Panama Canal Company theaters,

held at 7:50 a.m., Tuesday, Feb-
ruary 24, in the Cafetorium of the
Curundu Junior High School.
Invitations also have been dis-
tributed for the third annual Isth-
mian Women's Prayer Luncheon
which is associated with the Prayer
Breakfast and which will take place
at the Tivoli Guest House at 1 p.m.
the same day.
The principal speakers at the
Prayer Breakfast will be Conrad
Jensen, Deputy Inspector (ret.),
New York City Police Department,
and the Honorable Efrain Santiago.
Secretary of Social Services. Com-
monwealth of Puerto Rico.
Inspector Jensen, who will be
the main speaker in English, has
had an outstanding career as a law
enforcement officer in New York
City where he served for 26 years.
As a captain on the force, he was
in charge of the notorious 23d
Precinct which is located in East
Harlem and known as one of the
toughest in New York City. Later
he was placed in charge of the
vice squad covering the heart of
Manhattan from the United Nations
to Harlem.
Inspector Jensen has written
many articles, tracts, and booklets
on experiences during these years
of service as an officer of the law.
The merits of one of his most out-
standing publications, "26 Years
On The Losing Side," have been
mentioned in the CONGHESSIONAL
RECORD. A short article, "What Is
A Cop?" has been reprinted and
circulated in almost every English
speaking country in the world.
Because of his colorful career,
Inspector Jensen, who is now asso-
ciate director of Youth Deelop-
ment, Inc., an evangelical organiza-
tion working with youth gangs in
East Harlem, is much in demand
as a speaker.
Inspector Jensen will be the
guest speaker at the Women's
Prayer Luncheon.
Santiago, a member of the Cons-
titutional Cabinet of the Govern-
ment of Puerto Rico, will address
the breakfast group in Spanish.
Born in Puerto Rico, Santiago
has had a wide and varied career
in church activities and social
services both in Puerto Rico and
the United States. IHe worked for
several years with underprivileged

Handel's Te Deum will be per-
formed in its entirety by the Isth-
mian Choral Society at its Spring
concert this year.
Rehearsals are being held ever
Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. at
the St. Luke's Cathedral in Ancon
and new singers are welcome to
join the chorus but must do so
before February 17.
Arnold Walters is director ot the
Isthmian Choral Society and Per
Borg is its president.
This will be the Isthmian premier
of Handel's Te Dcunl which has a
little resemblance to the Messiah,
the favorite of all singers and lis-
teners alike.

being lowered by lines from the Panama Canal drydock crane.

CZ. Sailing Buff Launches

New Hong Kong Ketch

Albert Hendricks of the Systems
Division, a longtime sailing buff,
took delivery of his new Choey Lee
31-foot ketch recently. And it took
the combined efforts of his family,
his friends and the Panama Canal
organization to get the craft into
the water at Balboa.
There were no chances taken in
the launching of the good ship
Perchance. She was lowered with
only a hitch or two into the water
off the Balboa drydock by a Panama
Canal drydock crane and promptly
blessed by the Rev. Francis A.
Lynch, of the Sacred Heart Chapel
in Ancon.
The ketch was then christened in
a brief ceremony by Mrs. Hendricks,
who smashed a bottle of good cham-
pagne over her bow.
The craft is the latest addition
to the Balboa Yacht Club sailing
fleet which already includes one or
two of the famous Choey Lee hand-
made yachts. Built in Hong Kong
and shipped to Panama as deck
cargo on the freighter Telemachus,
the Perchance traveled through
some of the roughest weather the
Pacific has experienced in several

builder's crating and packing of

A Safety Hint

For All Drivers

All Panama Canal vehicle drivers
are instructed to walk a circle
around their automobiles or trucks
before getting in and driving away.
In this way, the driver checks to
make sure there are no children,
pets, toys, or obstructions in front
of, behind, under, or around the
This is a part of the Canal's
defensive driver training course and
is a safety precaution that every
motorist can easily take. It requires
only a few seconds but could save
a life or avert serious damage.

her sails, the vessel has a 151 horse-
power diesel engine. On a shake-
down cruise to Taboga recently,
she used both sail and motor.
Hendricks, who has been sailing
boats in Panama waters all of his
life-he started with a cayuco-

he ordered the present boat. He
said he thinks this will be the best
of the lot.

U.S. Ruling

On Imports

Plantain and frozen fish are
But papayas and preparations
containing meat are no-noes.
This ruling is being passed on to
Canal Zone residents by B. G.
Sanders, Jr., Chief of the Canal
Zone Customs, whose office has
been receiving queries regarding
the admission of these items and
several others into the United
In a letter, the Department of
Agriculture's Agricultural Research
Service in Hyattsville, Md., said
people traveling into the United
States could bring in an unrestricted
amount of plaintain and frozen fish
in their baggage.
But the department ruled out
such things as empanadas and cari-
mafiolas, which contain meat and
therefore are on the prohibited list.
The department also put a ban on
papayas and said that coconut
palms are prohibited from entering
"Permits are normally required
in advance of shipment for most
types of plant propagative mate-
rial," the letter said. Palm plants
which are normally used as house-
hold plants are admissible; how-
ever, coconut palms are prohibited.
If the traveler does not have time
to complete the permit formalities
to import palm plants before his
departure from the Canal Zone, the
department suggests that he bring
the plants with him and submit
them to the customs and agricul-
tural officials on arrival in the
United States along with a com-
pleted application for inspection.
The plants must be washed free
of soil and packed in damp sphag-
num or other moisture-preserving
material. The palms will be sub-
ject to inspection and to treatment
on arrival, the department advised.

Young Cyclists

Urged To Use

More Caution
In view of the increase in cycling
accidents, parents are urged to co-
operate in safeguarding the lives of
their children by reminding them of
the fundamental rules for safe bi-
cycle riding. Very often young chil-
dren are given bicycles and not
taught how, where, and when to
ride these bicycles.
More and more people are taking
to riding bicycles these days. They
ride for fun and they ride for exer-
cise. This upswing in cycling is
accompanied by an increase in
deaths resulting from bicycle acci-
dents. Statistics show that 72 per-
cent of the fatalities occur in the
5 to 14 age group.
Violations of bicycle riding safety
rules are the major factor in cycling
accidents. The most significant vio-
lations are proceeding without
having the right-of-way and im-
proper turning. Other safety viola-
tions include ignoring stop signs
and signals and riding in the middle
of the street or riding too fast.
Riding a bicycle at night without
proper lights is extremely hazard-
ous and is against the lasw.
Parents should make sure their
cycling children understand and
observe every traffic regulation.
Youngsters should be told to keep
to the right and ride single file;
to keep a safe distance from other
vehicles; to watch out for cars pull-
ing into traffic; to look right and
left before crossing street intersec-
tions; not to ride on the sidewalk;
and never to carry passengers or
ride against traffic. Bicycles must
be equipped with headlights and
rear reflectors and children should
wear white or light colored clothing
when riding at night.

Calif., so the Cherrys came back to
the Canal Zone for the first time
since his retirement in June 1964.
This week he was busy renew-
ing old acquaintances and visiting
with Mr. and Mrs. W. K. McCue,
of Los Rios, friends of long stand-
ing. First of all, he paid a visit to
the Administration Building at
Balboa Heights where he was on
duty for a number of ears before
he left the Isthmus.
A native of New Jersey, Cherry
came to the Canal Zone in 1945
and joined the Canal Zon: Police
force. He spent the next 19 years
as 1 member of the Balboa Police
District and lived all of that time
on the Pacific side.
The Cherrys have a daughter,
Mrs. Evelyn Critchfield with whom
thev stay sometimes when they want
to stop traveling. She lives with her
husband and four children in Free-
mont. A son, Edward Morris lives
in San Jose, Calif., and is a member
of the California Highway Patrol.
A third son, Albert W., is in San-
tiago, Chile, with IAGS. Both sons
attended the Canal Zone schools.

Gulf ports and Florida after deep water drilling in the Pacific. She is a
self propelled ocean bottom research vessel.

Drilling Rig T

Panama Canal Marine Traffic
dispatchers scanned the tide tables
on the Pacific side with unusual
interest recently. Three pieces of
floating equipment-one drilling rig
and two deep sea drilling ships with
rigs towering from 204 to 208 feet
above the waterline-had to be slip-
ped under Thatcher Ferry Bridge
at low tide.
The lowest portion of the bridge
structure is 196 feet above the
Canal channel at extreme high tide.
Since tides off the Pacific entrance
of the Canal fluctuate as much as
20 feet, the drill rigs did not have
too much trouble by leaving and
entering Balboa at low tide.
The unusual craft were the
Glamar Challenger, one of the new-
est and largest of the vessels con-
ducting an ocean bottom research;
the Big John, an oil drilling rig
being towed to Borneo from Texas;
and the deep water drilling vessel
Navigator, en route from Texas to
Australia via Tahiti.
Both the Big John and the Navi-
gator are being used for oil explora-
tion by private companies. The
Glormar Challenger, on the other
hand, is an ocean research ship
which has been at sea since 1968.
It has set up a long series of drilling
records by penetrating the seabed
in 20,000 feet of water and re-
covered sediment cores up to 2,500
feet into the sea bottom.
The Challenger has been drilling
in the Pacific and will drill into the
Gulf of Mexico seabed, a project
that will last until the middle of
March. The craft then will go into
Miami and the findings examined

Miami's Marine Institute which is

former "M" Mature classification.
A Canal Zone vehicle operator's
license for automobiles and motor-
cycles, or an enlisted man's or
officer's identification card, or the
new Canal Zone youth identification
card will be required as identifica-
tion for attending adult movies in
Panama Canal Company theaters or
for purchasing alcoholic beverages
in the Canal Zone. The ticket-taker
at the theater door, not the ticket
seller, will enforce the requirement.
Possession of any of these types
of identification will indicate the
holder is eligible to see adult films
unaccompanied by parents. Other
photo age identification which is
also issued to dependent children
will not be accepted at Panama
Canal theater entrances where the
doorman would have to examine
the birth date on each card. In the
case of bonafide guests who do not
have the required identification,
however, an exception will be made
and other suitable identification will
be accepted.
Application blanks for the youth
identification cards are available in
the principals' offices of Canal Zorle
high schools and in the License Sec-
tion offices. The cards will be issued
free of charge to eligible applicants.
Each applicant will have to appear
in person at the License Section
office with the completed applica-
tion, two passport-style photos of
himself and a birth certificate or
other proof of birth. The new cards
will be available Monday, Feb-
ruary 16.
SDoormen at Panama Canal theat-
ers where adult movies are showing
and sales personnel where beer is
sold will check the identification of
youth beginning March 1.
At military movies, military serv-
ice identification cards issued to
armed forces personnel and their
dependents will continue to be the
required proof for entrance eligi-
bility and age verification.

entrar en Balboa con marea baja.
La extraordinaria embarcacio6
era la Glonmar Challenger, uno de
los navios mas nuevos y mas largos
qlue Ilevan a cabo investigaci6n en
el fondo del oc6ano; el Big John,
un perforador de petr61eo ique era
remolcado a Borneo desde Texas;
v el navio perforador de aguas pro-
fundas Navigator, en viaje desde
Texas a Australia, via Tahiti.
Tanto el Big John como el Navi-
gator se estAn usando por compa-
iias privadas para la exploraci6n
de petr6leo. El Clomar Challenger,
por otro lado, es un barco de in-

vestigaci6n oceAnica que ha estado
en el mar desde 1968.
El Challenger ha estado tala-
drando en el Pacifico y perforara
en el lecho del mar en el Golfo de
M6xico hasta mediados de marzo.
La embarcaci6n irA luego a Miami
y sus hallazgos seran examinados
por cientificos del Instituto Mariti-
mo de la Universidad de Miami que
es uno de los cuatro centros mari-
timos que estlin coordinando el viaje
de investigaci6n de $35 millones.

Antes de Subir

A su Vehiculo

A todos los conductors de ve-
hiculos del Canal de Panama se les
ha impartido instrucciones en el
sentido de que caminen en circulo
alrededor de sus autom6viles o ca-
miones antes de entrar a los mismos
y partir. De esta manera, el con-
ductor se asegura de que no hay
ninios, animalitos, juguetes u obs-
ticulos en el frente, detris o alrede-
dor del vehiculo.
Esta es parte del curso de adies-
tramiento de manejo defensive del
Canal y es una media de precau-
ci6n que cualquier automovilista
puede tomar fAcilmente. Requiere
solamente unos pocos segundos pero
podria salvar una vida o impedir
un dafio grave.

La influenza tipo Hong Kong
caus6 una epidemia en Panamai, la
Zona del Canal v los Estados Uni-
dos, dlurante el invierno de 1968-69.
La misma variedad de ese virus esta
causando epidemias en varias areas
de Europa y Am6rica Latina. Al
igual que el afio pasado en Pana-
m'i y la Zona del Canal, la epide-
mia en esos otros paises estt cau-
sando ausentismo del trabajo y de
las escuelas y aumento en las admi-
siones a los hospitals. Al igual que
sucedi6 en los Estados Unidos el
afio pasado, ha habido muertes atri-
buidas a la epidemic, principalmen-
te de personas de edad avanzada
con problems cardiopuhnonares
\'a existentes.
Ha habido muchlas consults res-
pecto a la conveniencia de viajar a
regions donde est't atacando la in-
fluenza. Sin duda que una persona
que viaja a lugares done existe la
enfermedad corre mayor riesgo de
contraerla que si se queda en casa
en un lugar no afectado por la epi-
demia. Desafortunadamente, no
hay manera de medir el riesgo que
corre cada uno de los viajeros. La
situaci6n cambia ripidlamente se-
guin los lugares. Ademllis, el riesgo
varia segiin el grado de contact
que el viajero tenga con la pobla-
ci6n en general.
No existe informaci6n que sugie-
ra que las consecuencias de la in-
fluenza contraida mientras se es-
taba en el extranjero sean diferentes

de las que se presentan en el lugar
ide origin del viajero. La persona
con una enfermnedad cr6nica, espe-
cialmente si es del grupo de mayor
cdad, corre un mayor riesgo de
complicaciones que Iun adult joven
y sano. Es possible que la fatiga y
una mayor posibilidad de estar ex-
puesto a las inclemencias del tiem-
po durante el viaje contribuyan a
que la influenza sea mas aguda,
pero esto depend obviamente de
circunstancias individuals.
La persona que piensa viajar
debe sopesar la conveniencia que
para ella misnma tiene el viajar a un
area donde est( atacando la in-
fluenza. Los factors que deberA
tomar en consideraci6n son: (1) su
estado de salud; (2) su experiencia
con la influenza el afio anterior, a
pesar de que un ataque de "tran-
cazo" durante 1968-69 no consti-
tuye garantia de inmunidad; (3) la
importancia que par a a persona
tiene el viaje, y (4) la possible incon-
veniencia de contraer una enferme-
