Honored With 4 Awards

The hustling Canal Zone Coun-
cil, Boy Scouts of America, took the
coveted Region VI Chairman's Tro-
phy and swept three other major
awards Friday at the region's annual
meeting in Atlanta, Ga.
The Chairman's Trophy goes to
the council with the best all around
scouting record of the 39 councils
in the region, which covers Florida,
North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia, and the Canal Zone. It was
the fourth time in 6 years that the
Canal Zone Council had won this
Another important achievement
was winning the Section V Trophy
for being the best of 10 councils in
Section V of the region. This is the
fourth time in 5 years that the Canal
Zone Council has won this trophy
and means it now belongs perma-
nently to the Isthmians. Both the
Chairman's Trophy and the Section
V Trophy are awarded for outstand-
ing accomplishments in all phases of
The Canal Zone Council also won
the attendance award for the most
representation from the farthest dis-
tance and Belt Awards for being "on
target" with all goals set for the
council such as advancement, new
members, and Boy's Life subscrip-
Those attending the Atlanta meet-
ing from the Canal Zone were:
Lt. Gov. R. S. Hartline, president of
the Canal Zone Council; Wesley H.
Townsend, council commissioner;
Robert C. Worsley, liaison officer
between Boy Scouts in the Canal
Zone and the Republic of Panama;
James Beasley, council vice pres-
ident; Dr. Bernard K. Levin, na-

H. Merrill, executive board member.
Members of the Canal Zone dele-
gation gave a Panamanian touch to
the meeting by appearing in mon-
tuno shirts.

The award presentations in At-
lanta represented the latest recog-
nition of Canal Zone Scouters' "on
the move" tradition. Both adult vol-
unteers and the boys pride them-
selves on their enthusiasm in all
phases of Scouting.

their efforts that resulted in

The Governor said:
"Again, it is that time of year

congratulating Canal employ-
ees on meeting the current
Combined Federal Campaign
"We set out late in Septem-
ber to raise $196,330 requested
by the 25 agencies of the Canal
Zone United Fund and the In-
ternational Service agencies.
You took on the task with such
enthusiasm that the goal was
reached on the 10th day of the
campaign. Not satisfied with

merely reaching the goal, you
went right on making contribu-
tions to push the Canal organi-
zation far beyond the mark. At
last count, we had achieved
112 percent of our goal and
we're still moving ahead.
"Your efforts in making the
Canal organization's 1971Com-
bined Federal Campaign a suc-
cess are an indication of your
concern for the betterment of
the community. We are all
striving continuously toward
that end and by your actions
you have recognized that one
important way to build a better
community is by financially
supporting the work done by
the CFC agencies.
"Once again, many thanks
for your outstanding response."

A little red wagon, donated to Coco Solo Hospital by the ladies of the Lydia
Sunday School Class at the First Baptist Church in Margarita, is displayed
by Mrs. Douglas Litton, of Coco Solo; Mrs. Samuel E. O'Neal, of France
Field; and Miss Mabel Braden, R.N., director of Nursing Services at Coco
Solo Hospital. The wagon will be used mainly for transporting small
patients to the operating room. The wagon was suggested by Miss Braden
who said that it is much more fun and less terrifying for the children than
being strapped onto the wheeled stretcher normally used.

New Regatta To Honor

First Marine Director

A new sailing event, the Admiral
Hugh Rodman Regatta, will begin
tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the Balboa
Yacht Club. Sailboat racing will
continue all day Saturday, Sunday,
and Wednesday, Novemiber 11, Vet-
erans' Day.
During the regatta, boats will race
each day in three divisions. Divi-
sion I is for boats 26 feet long and
longer; Division II for boats up to
26 feet long; and Division III is for
trimarans and catamarans. All boats
will compete for trophies within
their own class.
The members of the Balboa Yacht
Club named the regatta in honor of
Admiral Rodman, the first Marine
Director of the Panama Canal, who
later served on the Board of Di-
rectors. He commanded in succes-
sion two divisions of battleships in
the Atlantic Fleet and the American
Battle Squadron attached to the
British Grand Fleet in the North Sea
during World War I. He was hon-
ored by George V for his service
there. Among his many awards and
decorations is the Distinguished
Service Medal of the United States.
In 1919, he was named Comman-
der-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet. After 2
years in that position, he was made
a Minister Plenipotentiary and En-
voy Extraordinary for a special
diplomatic mission to South Amer-
ica. He retired in January 1923.
He was again placed on active
duty in 1937 to attend the corona-
tion ceremonies of King George VI
and Queen Elizabeth and flew his
old flag of the U.S.S. New York for
the King's review of the fleet.
On January 7, 1940, Rodman died
in Washington, D.C., and is buried

Executive Finds Life

At Sea Can Be Lonely

Gerry Spiess, a young business
executive from St. Paul, Minn., who
has been planning for years to make
a trip around the world on his cus-
tom-made 17-foot sailboat, found
that by the time he reached Panama
those days of solitude at sea could
send a man up a tree, or at least up
the rigging.
So Spiess halted his trip in Colon,
tied his 17-foot boat to the pier at
the Colon Yacht Club and returned
by plane to St. Paul to get his wife.
When they get back to Panama,
he will make some minor adjust-
ments to the interior of the boat in
order to increase the sleeping space,
take on more provisions and away
they will go.
Spiess said that he had dreamed
of being the first person to take a

Gerry Spiess


You can do some of your holiday
shopping at the "Christmas Market"
sponsored by the Crossroads Chap-
ter, of the Sweet Adelines Inc., in
the old commissary building in
Margarita, November 7 from 10
a.m. to 4 p.m.
The large assortment of unusual
gifts being placed on sale are being
furnished by artists and craftsmen
from the Canal Zone and the
Republic of Panama.

The 1970 American Legion poppy campaign is launched on the Atlantic
side with the sale of the first poppy to N. E. Demers, Acting Transportation
and Terminals Director. Making the first sale are, left to right, Mrs. Eliza-
beth Yerxa and Mrs. Martha Irvin Tanner, president of the American
Legion Auxiliary, Nathaniel J. Owen Post No. 3, Gatun. The poppy sales
campaign runs this year from November 1 to November 15 with emphasis
on Poppy Day, which falls on Veteran's Day, November 11. Poppies are
made by hand by disabled veterans and all proceeds of the sale of poppies
go to welfare relief for servicemen and their families. In 1920 the American
Legion adopted the poppy as the memorial flower and it was adopted the
following year by the American Legion Auxiliary.

17-foot sailing boat around the
world. Smaller craft had taken
shorter runs but none of that size
had tried the around the world trip.
Now that he will not be making the
trip alone, he is not sure he will set
a world record but it will be a
lot more fun. So-that for world
Spiess said he designed and built
his sailboat himself at a cost of more
than $4,000. It has a Fiberglass hull,
a beam of 61% feet and a draft of
4 feet, 4 inches. Fully loaded, the
boat weighs 5,000 pounds and is
rigged with 170 square feet of heavy
duty sail.
Planning for the trip took him
about 7 years and it took another
2 months to get from St. Paul down
the Mississippi River to New Or-
leans. While he was outfitting the
boat in New Orleans, he was visited
by his wife and other members of
the family.
It was traveling through the Gulf
of Mexico and down the coast of
Central America that the moment
of truth came for young Spiess.
"There is nothing lonelier than a
week or so at sea alone in a small
boat," he said. Despite the books,
the radio, the chores to be done and
the problems of navigation, there
was the desolation of miles of sea
and no one to talk to. "Some people
can be alone for long periods of
time but I guess I'm not one of
them and it took this trip to prove
it," he said.
If all goes well, Spiess and his
wife will leave Panama in a month
or so and will set sail for northern
Australia. From there he will pro-
ceed through Southeast Asia and
Africa, making the turn around
Africa by the Cape of Good Hope.
Spiess is no stranger to Latin
Amnerica. He is a former resident of
Mexico City where he attended the
American School. His father, now
employed with the Minnesota Min-
ing and Manufacturing Co. of St.
Paul, was living in Mexico at the
He is a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Minnesota with a degree in
psychology. Before he set sail on
the round-the-world voyage, he was
employed in the administrative divi-
sion of the Tony Co. in St. Paul.

Girl Scout Sale

Of Calendars

Starts Tomorrow

Beginning tomorrow more than
1,400 Girl Scouts will start selling
the Canal Zone Girl Scout calendars
for 1971.
The sale, which will continue
through November 24, is an annual
event to raise additional funds for
troop programs, for expanding
Council camping facilities, and for
purchasing camping equipment.
There are two styles and sizes of
calendars. One is a pictoral calendar
printed in the United States and
sold by Girl Scouts throughout the
United States at this time of the
year. The other, which is larger in
size, is printed by La Estrella de
Panama for the Canal Zone Girl
Scout Council. Local holidays and
school dates are noted and there is
space to be used for appointments
or as a memo.
Anyone who wishes to purchase
a calendar and is not contacted by
a Girl Scout before November 24
should call the Canal Zone Girl
Scout Council office, Balboa 1350
or 2552.

to raise additional funds for the Girl Scout program in
the Canal Zone, will continue through November 24.

Tips on Cholera Given

By PC Health Officials

The possibility of American trav-
elers contracting cholera is very
slight, Canal health officials report,
but recommend that anyone trav-
eling to west and north Africa, the
Middle East and Asia have two
cholera inoculations to facilitate
their travel.
There have been only six reported
cases of cholera and no deaths
among the millions of Americans
who have traveled in cholera-in-
fected areas during the past decade.
Some recent evidence suggests
that it may be dangerous to swim
in water contaminated by human
wastes because Vibrio cholerae can
survive even in sea water. In
one recent outbreak in the Middle
East, uncooked vegetables "fresh-
ened" by water contaminated with
human wastes were thought to have
played a role in transmission.
It is advisable to swim only in

tions for the award, Governor Lebcr
stated: "In connection with setting
precedence and establishing the in-
tegrity and prestige of this new
awards program, I have already
approved the granting of one of the
three gold medallion awards to the
Honorable Maurice H. Thatcher in
recognition of his more than 60
years of conspicuous service to the
administration of the Canal and in
assisting all Governors in carrying
out their responsibilities. The high-
est form of recognition was prompt-
ed because of Mr. Thatcher's valu-
able assistance in securing the
recent enactment of the amendment
of the Cash Relief Act."

chlorinated pools in regions where
cholera is present and to avoid un-
cooked vegetables. Freshly peeled
fruits are safe.
Cholera has little likelihood of
reaching the Isthmus by means of
ships transiting the Canal because
the incubation period, usually 2 to
3 days, is so short. In the case
of ships coming to the Canal from
currently infected areas, both pri-
mary and secondary cases would
develop prior to arriving here, forc-
ing the vessel to seek treatment for
patients before reaching this area.
Ships must declare any suspicious
illness to boarding officials before
transiting the Canal.
Health officials suggest, however,
that air travelers to Panama from
countries where the disease has been
reported should contact their phy-
sician or health agencies at the first
possible symptom of a suspicious

haber alcanzado la meta, ustedes siguieron hacienda donativos que impul-
saron a la organizaci6n del Canal a llegar much mAs allA de la marca. De
acuerdo con cl fltimo c6mputo habiamos logrado el 112 por ciento de
nuestra meta y todavia seguimos adelante.
"Sus esfuerzos en pro del 6xito de la Campafia Federal Combinada de
1971 son una indicaci6n elocuente de su preocupaci6n por el mejoramiento
de la comunidad. Todos nos esforzamos continuamente hacia esa finalidad
y per sus acciones ustedes han reconocido que una manera important de

muchas gracias..."

"No, gracias. ITengo que manejarl"
-he aqui una expresi6n que hoy dia
se escucha mis y mas en las fiestas y
reuniones sociales cuando se ofrecen
bebidas alcoh61icas.
La repetici6n frecuente de esta ex-
presi6n es una buena serial, puesto que
indica que la gente se estA volviendo
mAs precavida. Los conductores de ve-
hiculos se estin dando cuenta de que
no vale la pena correr riesgos a cam-
bio del placer de disfrutar de un par
de tragos.
Desde luego, todavia quedan mu-
chos incautos que insisted en asegurar
que el trago no afecta su habilidad pa-
ra manejar. Algunos hasta creen que
pueden manejar mejor despu6s de in-
gerir unos cuantos cocteles o cervezas.
Sin embargo, la mayoria toma una ac-
titud mAs inteligente. Sabe que el que
Ileva las de perder es aquel que dice
que puede manejar igual con tragos
que sin ellos.
En los Altimos afios se ha investiga-
do bastante al respect y todos los re-
sultados tienden a reafirmar el hecho

de que el alcohol disminuye los refle-
jos y afecta la capacidad de calcular
con precision. O sea, que una persona
sobria sabe que no tiene tiempo de
pasarse una luz roja, pero con un par
de tragos entire pecho y espalda creera
que, acelerando un poquitito, lograrA
ejecutar la misma acci6n dos segundos

en realidad esti acelerando es quizAs
su llegada al cementerio, o la de algu-
na victim inocente, o buscAndose un
viaje imprevisto al hospital o a la cAr-
Las personas conscientes, que se dan
cuenta de los peligros a los que se ex-
ponen al permitirse libertades con el
alcohol, no tienen el menor interns en
correr riesgos innecesarios puesto que,
para ellos, viene primero la seguridad
de su familiar, la de sus semejantes y la
suya propia.
"No gracias, tengo que manejar" es
una expresi6n que debe popularizarse
mas y mas porque, cuanto mAs popular
se vuelva, tanto mas seguras se volve-
