Rallies Launch 1973

CFC in Canal Zone

Rousing kickoff rallies were held
all over the Canal Zone this week
as the Eighth Annual Canal Zone
Combined Federal Campaign got
off to a flying start.
One of the first rallies of the
campaign was held in the rotunda
of the Administration Building at
Balboa Heights. Sponsored by the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau, it featured the music of
the Randy Jacobs Combo.
Other rallies were held Wednes-
day and Thursday at the Industrial
Division Shops at Mount Hope,
Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks,
the Harbormaster's Office in Bal-
boa, Gatun Locks, and the Harbor-
master's Office in Cristobal.
Industrial Division Rally
Employees of the Industrial Di-
vision at Mount Hope, who have al-
ready met their Combined Federal
Campaign goals, gathered Wednes-
day morning to hear talks by Carl
J. Browne, Acting Engineering and
Construction Director; and Clar-
ence Payne, Youth Advisor to the
Governor, and listen to music fur-
nished by the 79th U.S. Army
Band and the Willie Moro Combo.
There also were songs by the Guys
and Dolls Barbershop Quartet.
The Marine Bureau rallies at the
Pacific Locks Wednesday featured
music by the well-known conjunto
from the Fermin Nadeau School in
Panama. Talks were given by Ale-
jandro Toribio of the Navigation
Division; Jos6 T. Tufi6n, Panama
Canal Spanish Publications Editor;
Maj. James Bozman, of the Salva-
tion Army; Augusto Hines, field or-
ganizer of the NMU; and William
Sinclair, international representa-
tive of the AFSCME, Local 900.
Rallies by the Marine Bureau on
the Atlantic side Thursday included
talks by Wilfred Barrow, represent-
ing the Latin American communi-
ties, the Reverend Arthur Griffith,
of the Church of God, and Rev.
Peter Adjie of the Margarita Union
By kickoff time, many of the bu-
reaus had nearly completed their
CFC campaign. The Supply and
Community Service Bureau re-
ported that all divisions had ex-
ceeded their goals and that the
bureau total was up to 130 percent
of the goal.
100 Percent Payroll Deductions
Out of the first 2,143 cards
turned in, 2,000 employees had
signed up for payroll deduction.
Among the first units identified as
having 100 percent payroll deduc-
tion participation were the Gaim-
boa Retail Store and the Mount
Hope Milk Plant.
The Transportation and Ter-
minals Bureau reported that, as of
the first day of the campaign, the
Motor Transportation Division had
already exceeded its dollar goal
and that the Terminals Division
was well on the way. The Railroad
Division Car Shop reported 100
percent participation on the first
The Personnel Bureau reported
going over the top of its assigned
goal on the first day of the cam-
paign and the Sanitation Division
of the Health Bureau exceeded its
dollar goal. Staff Units also ex-
ceeded their goal the first day.

Civil Affairs Bureau
The Civil Affairs Bureau re-
ported that the following units had
achieved more than 100 percent of
the dollar goal on the first day:
Police Division; Canal Zone Li-
brary-Museum; License Section;
Ancon, Balboa and Diablo Heights
elementary schools and the Civil
Affairs Director's Office.
The Marine Bureau reported
good progress on its campaign
toward a monetary goal set at
$45,800, one of the highest in the
Canal organization.
The Combined Federal Cam-
paign, which gives civilian and mil-
itary personnel a chance to make
a single contribution to 26 organi-
zations, has a goal set this year at
$325,044. The drive started Sep-
tember 27 and will continue
through November 3, 1972.
The money will be used to sup-
port 22 participating agencies in
the Canal Zone United Fund and
four participating units of the In-
ternational Service Agencies. This
is the only fund raising drive for
these groups this year.

New PC Lawyer

Arrives With

Prestige Auto
Everyone knows that the legal
profession is a lucrative one but
probably not every young lawyer
can have a Bentley in his garage.
It just happened that way for
Mike Kozak, newest addition to
the General Counsel's staff at Bal-
boa Heights, whose hobby is re-
pairing and restoring automobiles-
especially unusual ones.
The right-hand drive Bentley,
one of England's finest cars, came
into his possession while he was in
California completing his law stu-
dies at the University of California
at Berkeley. He purchased it from
a non-legal client who had taken
it to him for repairs. He paid
$1,500 for the car but he invested
$2,000 more for repairs to the

Of Cats, Dogs

To Begin Oct. 2
All dogs and cats in the Canal
Zone must be registered during the
month of October. This is an
annual process which includes in-
noculation against rabies as well as
the purchase of a new license tag.
Canal residents are reminded
that if they own, keep, or have cus-
tody of a dog or cat that is 4 months
old or older, it must be inoculated
against rabies.
Dogs are vaccinated every 3
years but must have a new license
every year. Cats, however, are vac-
cinated every year and must have
a new license tag every year.
The rabies vaccination, license
and tag cost $2 for Canal organiza-
tion employees and for pet owners
who live on military reservations.
Vaccination and registration can
be accomplished at the same time.
The license will be issued to the
dog or cat owner at the quarantine
unit directly after the animal is
vaccinated or after a valid vaccina-
tion certificate is presented for a
new license.
On the Pacific side, vaccination
and licensing will be done without
an appointment at the Animal
Quarantine Station at Corozal dur-
ing the morning, 8 a.m. to 12 noon,
Monday through Friday.
Those prefering to come in the
afternoon must make an appoint-
ment for the hours between 1 to 5
p.m., Monday through Friday. The
telephone number is 52-3457.
Dog and cat owners on the At-
lantic side can take their pets to
the Mindi Animal Quarantine Sta-
tion where vaccination and licens-
ing will be available Monday
through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m.
They must make an appointment
by calling 43-1912.

Abou Saad Temple To Hold
Fish Fry Tomorrow Night
The Motor Patrol of the Abou
Saad Temple will hold a fish fry
tomorrow from 5 to 7 p.m. at the
Ancon Masonic Temple. Tickets
may be purchased from any Shriner
and at the door. Prices are $1.50
for adults, 75 cents for children,
all you can eat.

It is plain to see that the members of the Kozak family
have a soft spot in their hearts for their shiny 1960

Bruce Quinn Named Chairman

New UF Festival

Planned for 1973

A United Fund Festival featur-
ing a series of dramatic produc-
tions will be inaugurated next sum-
mer to replace the one musical
extravaganza staged in the past.
Named chairman of the festival
was Bruce Quinn, who has served
as producer of all the local United
Fund productions since the first in

Bruce Quinn

Way Is Cleared

For Payment of

The way has been cleared for
payment of pending administrative
claims for tropical differential to
married women employees of the
Canal Zone Government and the
Panama Canal Company.
The Governor's office received
notice from Washington by tele-
phone Wednesday that the Comp-
troller General of the United States
ruled the claims should be paid to
women employees of the Canal
Zone Government and that a letter
to that effect is en route to the
Canal Zone. The Acting Governor
has issued instructions for the ad-
ministrative claims to be paid as
soon as the Comptroller General's
letter arrives on the Isthmus.

British-made Bentley automobile. Here they are in
front of the Administration Building.

1964, which was "Oklahoma!" and
continuing through the last one,
"Mame," which he coproduced
with Carlos Williams. In addition,
Quinn directed three of the most
successful UF production, "My Fair
Lady," "Man of La Mancha," and
The festival format is expected
to offer a broader range of oppor-
tunity for performers while ex-
panding its range of audience
appeal. Musicals, dramas, modern
Broadway type plays and perhaps
classics may all fit into the first
festival next summer. Quinn an-
nounced that no shows have been
selected yet but mentioned as pos-
sibilities "1776," "Fiddler on the
Roof," "The Me Nobody Knows"
and "Purlie," an all black musical.
Festival productions will pro-
vide a challenging outlet for the
growing number of young per-
formers who have expressed a de-
sire to continue working in dra-
matic productions. Many of these
youngsters began appearing before
Isthmian audiences in the United
Fund production of "Oliver!" 2
years ago and returned to the foot-
lights for other productions.
Some who have left the Isthmus
have continued their theatrical
work elsewhere. One who has been
highly successful is Ricky Belzer,
17, who first worked in theatrics
under Quinn at the age of 13 and
left Panama to complete his high
school education in the United
States. Currently, he is doing light-
ing designing at Bucks County
Playhouse, Pennsylvania, one of
the most reputable summer stock
theaters in the country. Young
Belzer is assisting the lighting de-
signer for the pre-Broadway trial
production of "Halloween" starring
David Wayne.
The 1973 season will be Quinn's
10th anniversary of participation
in Isthmian theatrics. Following his
discharge from the U.S. Army in
1962, he joined the Canal's Per-
sonnel Bureau. Later, he became
associated with the Theatre Guild
for which he produced and co-
directed "South Pacific" in 1963.
In addition to his work with
United Fund productions, Quinn
has produced and directed numer-
ous other plays, handled set de-
signing, directed lighting and dab-
bled in almost every phase of
behind the scenes work.

About Parent Job Switch Plan Xmas Market

"What would happen if your
mother and father switched jobs?"
was the question posed by Mrs.
Chrystal Durham, fourth grade
teacher at Balboa Elementary
School, to students taking part in
a new program designed to en-
courage creative writing.
The children were urged to
write their answers in their own
way and some of the more inspired
efforts were posted on the bulletin
board for parent's night.
Here are a few of the stories,
with only the last names of the
children omitted to protect inno-
cent parents:

Airline Pilot
Rachel, whose father apparently
is an airline pilot, wrote: "One day
my mom and dad decided to change
jobs. My dad sure didn't do a very
good job. The house was a mess.
And the baby was crying. Mean-
while my mom had just wrecked
the plane. And there were 133
people in it. Biggest plane on earth.
Too badly"
Mike, who labeled his story,
"My Father's Housework?", wrote:
"One day when my father came
home he decided that he wanted
to do the housework. My mother
wanted to work in the office. The
next day my father tried to feed
everybody. When he was passing
out jelly sandwiches, he tripped
over a toy truck and jelly went
flying all over the place and hit
my mother in the face."

Dad Cooked Breakfast
A little girl named Liz wrote:
"My dad once told me a story about
him and my mom. It first started
when my dad went to work. He
worked at Fort Ord, Calif. When
he came home one night he said,
"Betty, if you do my work, I will
do yours. I know how hard mine
is but yours is harder. The next
morning my dad was cooking break-
fast and my mom was up too and
ready to go to work. One hour
later Betty had a lot of trouble and
at home my dad had a lot of
trouble taking care of me and my
brothers and milking the cow and
goat. I fed the horses and the bull
and the pigs and my sheep. When
my mom came home she said,
"I am not going to do your job
after all."
Anita, whose mother is a sub-
stitute teacher, was quite convinced
her parents should stick to their
assigned tasks: "My father works
for the Electrical Division and my
mother substitutes. If my mother
took father's job we wouldn't have
lights. Mother would press wrong
buttons and everything would ex-
plode. And my father wouldn't do
math or any subject right."

Messy Tunnel
Mark, whose father is employed
at Quarry Heights, showed little
confidence in his mother's ability
to make the switch: "My dad works
in his office in the tunnel. My

Mike and his wife, Eileen, and
7-year-old son, Dan, came east
with the Bentley last year and it
immediately became a topic of
conversation among the neighbors
in Washington, D.C. In fact, it was
the subject of an article in a na-
tional automobile magazine.
Mike went to work with the U.S.
Department of State in the Office
of Legal Adviser. In the course of
his duties, he made several trips to
Panama and liked it so well that
he applied for a position with the
General Counsel's Office and was
later hired.

the distinction of owning the most
luxurious automobile in the 12-

Debido a la generosidad de va-
rias almas nobles, la Cocina de los
Pobres que patrocina la Iglesia de
Salem de la ciudad de Col6n, podri
seguir dando alimentos a muchos
pobres. Sin embargo, el equipo esta
en condiciones deplorables, por los

servicios y necesita ser moderni-
Hasta ahora, se ha estado coci-
nando en fogones de carb6n, lo
cual, ademAs de ser poco econ6mi-
co y sumamente inc6modo para las
voluntarias que efectdan la labor,
es algo muy peligroso, porque
puede provocar un incendio de la-
mentables consecuencias. Por ello,
es urgente conseguir una estufa
para efectuar esa labor.
Nuevamente, la Iglesia de Salem
llama al coraz6n de todas las per-
sonas que se preocupan por el
bien de los menos favorecidos,
para que le den su ayuda a la Co-
cina de los Pobres, esta vez, para
proporcionarle una estufa. La es-
tufa podrA ser regalada por una
empresa commercial, por alguna her-
mandad o entidad civica, o si no
se puede, se tendra que hacer una

subscripci6n entire los amigos de
los pobres. Las donaciones que se
hagan con este prop6sito seran pu-
blicadas en la prensa.
Este esfuerzo caritativo de la
Iglesia Salem del Evangelio Unido,
ha sido llevado a cabo durante los
iltimos afios por personas volun-
tarias y con la valiosa cooperaci6n
financiera del pAblico.
Cuando se reorganice la cocina,
se le darA una pequefia compensa-
ci6n a la persona que se encargue
de la cocina. Con este gasto extra,
se requeriran unos $10.
A los amigos de la Cocina de los
Pobres de la Iglesia Salem se les
solicita que recuerden, cuando es-
tan en la mesa, que muchos otros
no pueden comer ni una sola vez
al dia y que esas son las personas
a quienes la Cocina de los Pobres

Claude R. Tait, es t6cnico de con-
tabilidad en la Secci6n de Cuentas
Generales (Libros Mayores), de la
Contaduria General. Inici6 su ser-
vicio en el Canal en 1942, a los 15
afios, como mozo de oficios de ofi-
cina, con un sueldo de $22.50 al
mes. Recordando esos tiempos,
dice: "Muchas veces, los j6venes
de hoy no se dan cuenta de las
grandes oportunidades que existen
ahora de obtener una buena edu-
caci6n y no las aprovechan. Yo tuve
que luchar much y a6n asi no he
logrado todavia cumplir con todos
mis deseos en lo que a educaci6n
respecta. Al aiio de haber ingre-
sado, fue nombrado mensajero y le
aumentaron el sueldo a $35 men-
suales. A los 6 meses se le nombr6
ayudante de oficina, con $47.50
mensuales. En 1953, cuando fue as-
cendido a operario de equipo de
contabilidad, ya ganaba $175 men-
suales. En 1970 fue nombrado sub-
jefe de una unidad de miquinas
de contabilidad y finalmente, en
noviembre de 1971, lo ascendieron
a t6cnico de contabilidad, su ac-
tual posici6n. Tait es empleado del
Canal de segunda generaci6n. Su
padre, Elisha Tait fue empleado
del viejo Comisariato de Anc6n,
durante mis de 40 afios, hasta que
fue trasladado al viejo Comisariato
de La Boca, donde se jubil6 hace
various aiios. Tait reside en la nueva
barriada de Villa Rica, en el sector
de Rio Abajo, en una casa de su
propiedad reci6n construida y que
le Ileva todo el tiempo libre que
le queda, pues hay que hacer mu-
chas cosas, como cercar, cuidar el
jardin, etc. Su esposa es la Sra.
Paulina Johnson de Tait, con la
que se cas6 hace 21 afios. Tiene
cuatro hijos: Verna Jean de Gilkes;
Luis Rogelio, reci6n graduado de
electricista en el Instituto Tombs
Alva Edison; Pamela Anesta, quien
cursa el cuarto afio de secundaria
en la Escuela Profesional Isabel
Herrera Obaldia, y Ursula Ma-

- - .- --


rietta, que estA en el sexto grado
de primaria de la Escuela Puerto
Rico, situada en el barrio de La
Carrasquilla. Muchos de los que
trabajan con Tait, no saben que era
el famoso jugador Tait del equipo
Spur-Cola, de la Liga Profesional
de Beisbol de Panama, en los afios
de 1950 a 1953, compafiero de
Le6n Kellman, H6ctor L6pez y
otras famosas estrellas del beisbol
de Panama. Ahora dice que juega
bola suave y el beisbol s6lo le gusta

verlo. Otra de sus aficiones es es-
cuchar musica. Le encantan el
jazz y la misica clAsica. Los gran-
des maestros que mis le llaman la
atenci6n son Federico Chopin y
Claude Debussy. Una de las cosas
que con mas orgullo recuerda es
el Premio por Desempefio Sobre-
saliente en el Trabajo y su corres-
pondiente cheque por $200, que le
fue otorgado en 1968. Tambi6n le
llena de satisfacci6n el contar que
en 1950 fue escogido para former
parte de la selecci6n de la Provin-
cia de PanamA que particip6 en el
Campeonato Nacional de Beisbol
Aficionado en Las Tablas y que se
coron6 campe6n de la Repiblica.

Se Activa Club

De Ingles de

Rainbow City
Varias actividades ha desarrolla-
do recientemente el Club de Ingl6s
"Little Speech Champions" (Pe-
quefios Campeones de Oratoria) de
la Escuela Primaria de Rainbow
City, que fue fundado hace 2 aiios
con el prop6sito de ayudar a los
alumnos de los quintos y sextos
grados a mejorar la pronunciaci6n
y enunciaci6n del ingl6s.
Hace poco el club partieip6 en
la celebraci6n de la "Semana del
Ingles", organizada por los cole-
gios San Jos6, de los Padres Pauli-
nos, y Abel Bravo de Col6n, al pre-
sentar dos comedies.
El semestre pasado el club dio
6nfasis a la lectura coral, y se les
organize para representar obras
apropiadas a su edad. Como resul-
tado de esa labor, los i6venes del
club cuentan con un repertorio de
obras de famosos autores como
Dylan Thomas, Robert Browning
y Mildred Meigs.

Fot6grafos de Antano
Durante los dias de la construc-
ci6n del Canal, los fot6grafos afi-
cionados salian a tomar fotogra-
fias, no s61o con cimara y pelicula,
sino tambien con el equipo de reve-
lado. Ello se debia a que el calor y
la humedad del tr6pico tendian a
dafiar las emulsiones fotograficas
de ese entonces, por lo que era ne-
cesario el revelado inmediato.
Siempre ha habido remedio para
los grandes males y los fot6grafos
de entonces se las ingeniaron para
tomar magnificas fotos que son la
admiraci6n de los profesionales de
hoy dia.

"Se est6n quejando del nuevo sistema
de iluminacidn de oa plant . ahora

A primera vista parece dificil, y
aun impossible, que de nuestro com-

y tal vez la eficiencia, de nuestros
amigos y semejantes. Pero si nos
detenemos a meditar, habremos de
admitir que esa premisa es com-
pletamente cierta en muchas oca-
El comportamiento, tanto en el

En ocasiones, tal vez tratando
de ser amistosas o simpAticas, las
personas dicen cosas que podrian
resultar inoportunas o inc6modas,
hasta el punto de poder crear pro-
blemas a quienes no se quiere ha-
cer el menor dafio. iPero ello
Las distracciones, tanto en el
trabajo como en la calle o la casa,
resultan en muchos casos en equi-
vocaciones, deficiente rendimiento,
accidents en ]a calle y aun en
casa, en donde los afectados bien
podrian ser familiares nuestros.
De alli que haya quien diga que
detras de un accident hay siem-
pre un distraido. La mejor manera
de evitar esos malos moments a
otros, y a nosotros mismos, es la
de estar siempre atento . . . en el
trabajo, en la calle, en el parque
de diversiones y, en fin, en donde
nos Ileven nuestros actos. Es apli-
car los principios del ser precavido.

zas, tan populares en los tiempos
de nuestros abuelos.
Esa noche de bailes elegantes,
que serA denominada "Noche del
Recuerdo de las Cuadrillas", serA
amenizada por los dos mis conoci-
dos conjuntos de esa clase de m6si-
ca: el Profesor Garcia y su "Quin-
teto Progresista", del sector AtlAn-
tico, y Kenneth Brown con su
"Combo de Cuadrillas", del sector
Pacifico. HabrA un espectAculo es-
pecial que consistirl en una exhi-
bici6n que harAn bailarines selec-
cionados de ambos sectors.
Actualmente, son muchos los
que estin practicando y preparAn-
dose a tomar parte en este baile,
que servirA tambi6n para reunir a
viejas amistades y a crear nuevas
y que serA una de las mejores acti-
vidades sociales de este afio.
La informaci6n y demAs detalles
acerca de este baile se pueden con-
seguir con el Profesor Reginald T.
