Vol. XI, No. 39

Young Men Must Register

With Local Draft Boards A U

Young men in the Canal Zone
will still be required to register with
the local draft boards at age 18
despite the fact that draft calls have
Ronald L. Seeley, Director of
Selective Service for the Canal
Zone, has announced that local draft
boards will continue to process some
of the young men to have a readily
available pool in the event of a na-
tional emergency.
Men born in 1954 received lottery
numbers in the National Draft Lot-

Tax Claimants

Must Act Before

April 16, 1973
U.S. Government employees who
wish to claim refunds on income
taxes paid on their contributions to
the Civil Service Retirement and
Disability Fund for the 1969 tax
year must act by April 16, 1973.
Federal employees have initiated
litigation before the U.S. Tax Court
and a U.S. district court concerning
the appropriate tax year for levying
income taxes on contributions to
Civil Service retirement plans.
In 1972, the Internal Revenue
Service reiterated its long-standing
position that such contributions are
taxable as income in the year with-
held and contributed just as if they
had been paid directly to Federal
employees. The claimants, however,
contend that retirement contribu-
tions should be taxed in the year
they are paid to the employee
during retirement. Presumably, this
would result in income being defer-
red to a period when taxation would
be payable at a lower rate.
Taxpayers who wish to claim re-
funds for contributions withheld
during previous years may do so by
filing a Form 843. Such refund
claims may go back only to the 1969
tax year. Those claims must be
filed not later than April 16, 1973.
Claims for the 1970 tax year must
be filed not later than April 15,
The Internal Revenue Service
has cautioned all taxpayers not to
reduce income on the 1972 income
tax returns by deducting or exclud-
ing their contributions to the Civil
Service Retirement plans. The re-
duction in income will not be
allowed and any refund otherwise
allowable will be delayed. The tax-
payer, may, of course, accompany
his 1972 return with a Form 843
claiming a refund for that portion
of his salary which has been with-
held and contributed to the U.S.
Civil Service Retirement and Dis-
ability Fund.
Further information and copies
of the refund form (Form 843) may
be obtained from Director, Office
of International Operations, I.R.S.
Washington, D.C., 20225.

Sand Blast Warning
Motorists are advised not to park
in the Balboa Heights Railroad
Station during this weekend when
sand blasting will be carried out on
Panama Railroad locomotive "Old

spaces in this area will be closed
during the sand blasting operations.

tery which was held last week in
Washington, D.C. These men will
make up the first group to "stand
ready" during a period of no draft
calls but will be available during
calendar year 1974 should Congress
and the President decide it is neces-
sary to resume draft inductions.
Seeley pointed out that "Con-
gress has recognized that there
would be periods of no draft calls
but it felt that it would be unwise
to dismantle the Selective Service
System during such periods. The
law still requires that each male
citizen of the United States register
with the Selective Service when he
reaches age 18."
In years to come, the Selective
Service will continue to hold a Na-
tional Draft Lottery to assign se-
quence numbers to young men
during the year they turn 19. This
number will determine their order
of call in the event an emergency
arises and the draft must be started
again. Men turning 18 in 1973, for
example, will be required to regis-
ter this year. Next year, they will
get a lottery number and they will
"stand ready" for possible induction
during 1975, Seeley explained.
Information on how and where
to register and other aspects of the
draft may be obtained by calling
the Selective Service office at 52-

Boy Scout Camporee

To Stress Environment

"Environmental and Natural Re-
sources" is the theme of this year's
Boy Scout Spring Camporee to be
held at Camp Chagres March 23,
24 and 25. Some 400 scouts and
adult leaders representing 59 patrols
from both sides of the Isthmus are
expected to attend the event, whose
headquarters will be established at
Compton Hall in the central dining
area of Camp Chagres.
In view of the increasing aware-
ness of the problems of environ-
mental pollution, emphasis in the
Spring Camporee will be focused
on the recognition of natural speci-
mens of plants and animals and the
development and understanding of
environmental concepts.
In addition to scouting skills, fun
and fellowship of outdoor camping,
there will be five competitive
events, all of which incorporate
requirements toward the awarding
of a merit badge.

Low Bid Submitted for Gas

Turbine Plant Building

A apparent low bid of $43,770
was submitted by the local con-
struction company of Bildon Ltd.
for the furnishing and installation
of a prefabricated metal structure
which will serve as the maintenance
building for the gas turbine power-
plant recently erected at Mount
The contract will also include
the installation of new primary
and secondary cables, construction
of new conduit lines, installation of
a transformer, furnishing and in-
stallation of lighting and power dis-
tribution systems in the building
and other work.

Other construction firms that
submitted bids were W. A. Rogers,
Dillon Construction Co., E. O.
Hauke Construction Co., and Heyl
& Patterson International, Inc.
Meanwhile, final tests are being
made at Mount Hope on the
$1,960,000 gas turbine generating
plant which will add 22,000 kw. to
the Panama Canal power system.
The contract for this new gener-
ating plant was awarded to Hitachi
America Ltd., of New York in
October 1971. The gas turbine and
the generator were built and tested
in Japan while the control cab was
built in the United States.

A description of the competitive
events notes that each patrol will
be required to identify 10 snakes
by their common names and iden-
tify each snake as poisonous or non-
Each patrol will be required to
identify 10 poisonous or edible
plants; identify trash items as either
biodegradable or nonbiodegradable,
and write a 50-100-word paragraph
on environmental pollution con-
trol; identify the characteristics of
a sanitary campsite; and study the
ecology of a controlled area and
identify the relationship between
plants and animals as they relate
to the environment.
The busy program will begin on
Friday at 4:30 p.m. when the scouts
arrive at Camp Chagres and check
in. They will set up camp and have
dinner. If they so desire, scouts may
bring a sack lunch for Friday even-
ing. The other meals, Saturday
breakfast, lunch and supper and
Sunday breakfast must be prepared
in camp.
Saturday begins with reveille at
6:30 a.m., flag raising at 6:45 a.m.
followed by breakfast at 7 a.m. and
cleanup from 8 to 9 a.m. Competi-
tive events will take place from 9
a.m. to noon followed by lunch and
cleanup. More competitive events
will occupy the hour from 1:30 to
2:30 p.m. From 2:30 to 5 p.m. is
onen time and the scouts may pre-
pare for the evening meal and troop
advancement. Retreat is from 5 to
5:15 p.m. followed by supper until
7:15 p.m. cleanup and the highlight
of the camporee, the Saturday night

Resume at Sosa Hill

Efforts to grow plants and trees
again on Sosa Hill are being con-
tinued by Canal Zone Scout troops
despite the fire that apparently
burned all the grass and some of
the new seedlings planted by stu-
dent groups last year.
Members of Scout Troop 3, under
the direction of Scoutmaster Bill
Shaw and Senior Patrol Leader
Chris Ustick, started last week on
a watering project that will attempt
to give some moisture to the still
living plants and keep them alive
until the rainy season starts.
Calling it a foster mother project,
scouts will ask for assistance from

individuals and members of orga-
nizations to find a growing plant
on Sosa Hill, water it and keep it
alive until Mother Nature takes
over in the wet season.
A survey made after the recent
grass fire by Richard Erbe, Supply
and Community Service Director,
Paul Broussard, leader of Scout
Troop 21, and Thomas Strider of
Explorer Post No. 7, revealed that
many of the seeds and plants placed
on Sosa Hill in 1972 were still alive.
It was decided that selective
watering of living seedlings that
already have roots in the ground
would keep them growing and give
them a head start over the grass
this year.
Help in this program of turning
Sosa Hill from a grassy flamable
hill into one covered with trees and
bushes is being given by members
of the Canal Zone Fire Division
who have filled water tanks and
spotted them on the shoulder of
the road leading up the hill. This
will enable Scouts and their helpers
to get maximum use of the water
on the higher slopes.

Civic Councils

They Provide

A Means of


Since 1937 when Balboa and
Ancon residents decided to orga-
nize a forum to discuss matters of
community interest that would also
serve as a channel of communica-
tions between the administration
and residents, the Canal Zone Civic
Councils have proved to be a valu-
able instrument for Canal employ-
ees and their families.
Patterned after the city councils
in the United States, the local orga-
nizations serve for making sugges-
tions, asking questions, relaying
complaints (and from time to time,
compliments) of their constituents
and call attention to matters that
members consider worthy of dis-
cussion. Unlike their States coun-
terparts, however, they do not have
the power to pass ordinances.
Morale Booster
In addition to providing a listen-
ing post for community affairs, the
civic councils help to boost the
morale of employees who realize
that the administration is really in-
terested in their problems and
wants to help find a solution to
them. Hundreds of decisions on
matters involving housing, retail
stores, medical care, pricing policies,
recreational facilities, regulatory
measures and other employee-
affecting proposals have been in-
fluenced throughout the years by
an airing in the civic council ses-
sions. The advice and opinions of
the civic councils have been re-
quested on many subjects before
new regulations have been made,
very often resulting in improve-
ments in service and facilities to the
Through the years it has been
the policy of the administration to
inform civic councils first of im-
pending changes in regulations and
rates, giving the reasons for the
changes. This was done until re-
cently by the Executive Planning
Staff but the function was trans-
ferred to the Office of the Governor-
President last year. The Aide to the
Governor is also the Civic Council
Staff Officer and serves as the co-
ordinator between the councils and
the Canal organization.
Annual Elections
Election for delegates to the vari-
ous community councils are held
each year with part of the council
members being replaced and others
retained to provide a continuity in
service and experience in the coun-
cil's membership. Each community
organization establishes its own
council and a constitution and by-
laws for it. In addition to the offi-
cers, representatives are selected to
serve as delegates to executive ses-
sions which are scheduled periodic-
ally with the Governor to discuss
matters of interest. These Execu-
tive sessions are usually held every
6 weeks in the Administration
Building at Balboa Heights. Mat-
ters are often taken care of on the
spot and other subjects needing
more information and action are
referred by the Governor to the
appropriate Company-Government

There is a growing concern
towards making the wearing of
PFD's (Personal Floatation Devices)
mandatory all the time by all boat-
ing enthusiasts while in small boats.
While some counties and state
governments do have statutory reg-
ulations on mandatory wearing of
PFD's in small boats, the wearing
of this lifesaving equipment is
usually optional to the boating
Here is what the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation and the U.S.
Coast Guard recommend on the
subject in their jointly published
"Skipper's Course" instruction man-
ual (CG-433, June 1972):
Who Is To Wear
This is not always an easy ques-
tion for you to answer because it
involves a personal judgment on
your part. First, all small children
should wear a PFD in the boat at
all times. Small children are almost
always active and like to climb
around exploring. Second, all non-
swimmers, both children and adults,
should wear a PFD in the boat.

Balboa YMCA Offers

Swimming Program
The Balboa YMCA is now ac-
cepting registrations for a complete
instructional swimming program.
Classes are scheduled for "tiny tots"
aged 2 to 6, school age youngsters
and adults. All levels of ability are
scheduled from beginners through
advanced swimmers for all ages.
Enrollment and information may
be found at the Balboa YMCA or
by calling 52-2839.

Retiring will be John Dombrow-
sky, Jim Bowen, Joseph Cope,
Milton Horter, Casey Bazan and
Donald MacLean.

Tina Boostrom practices jumping
for her participation in the Fort

tomorrow and Sunday. English and
Western events will be presented

on Sunday. Admission is $1 for
adults and 25 cents for children.
One ticket is good for both days.
Barbecued beef on a bun and other
goodies will be available.

Margarita Pool

Plans Swim Trials

The Margarita Swimming Pool
will host the Atlantic side Easter
Time Trials at 9 a.m., March 31.
Swimmers must have equaled or
bettered the established "cut times"
to be eligible to swim in the time
trials. Ribbons will be awarded for
the first four places. This meet is
sponsored by the Division of Schools
and is open to students enrolled in
Canal Zone schools. Contestants
may enter three events in their age
group and may obtain entry blanks
at any Atlantic side Canal Zone
Schools Division pool.
The Easter Classic will be held

Third, if you have any passengers
or guests who might be physically
handicapped, see that they also
wear a PFD in the boat.
When To Wear
Again, this a judgment situation.
In general, however, whenever the
weather worsens from anything but
clear and calm-then all hands get
into a PFD. In areas of heavy boat-
ing traffic or when you're taking the
boat through choppy water such as
the mouth of a river or a tidewater
inlet, put them on. Professional mar-
iners, Coast Guardmen, and all Old
Salts will get into a PFD at the
drop of a hat. (That's how they got
to be an Old Salt.) Make sure your
PFD's are ready to be worn. Fit and
adjust the straps and fasteners for
each individual before you leave the
dock or launch area. Leave the
fasteners unhooked to eliminate
that step when time is critical.

Rev. M. A. Cookson
Returns to Isthmus

The Reverend Milton A. Cook-
son, who served at St. Andrew's
Episcopal Church at Cocoli from
1947 to 1950, has returned to the
Isthmus and will again assume
duties there as Priest-in-Charge
under a special assignment. Father
Cookson also served at the Church
of Our Savior, New Cristobal, and
at St. Margaret's at Margarita, on
the Atlantic side.
After he left the Isthmus, Father
Cookson served for 7 years in the
Directorship of St. James Church,
Lewistown, Mont.
Father Cookson was chaplain
aboard the U.S.S. South Dakota
during World War II. While in port
at Balboa on his return from the
South Pacific, he met the Right
Reverend Regional H. Gooden,
former Bishop of the Missionary
Diocese of Panama and the Canal
Zone, later accepting the charge at
St. Andrew's.

Una especial afici6n por el arte pic-
t6rico inspir6 su vocaci6n por la
arquitectura, y hoy dia participa en
el Program de Ayudantes Estu-
diantiles de las Escuelas Latino-
americanas, trabajando precisamen-
te en donde podria aplicar y pro-
fundizar en sus conocimientos: el
Ramo de Ingenieria Civil de la Di-

trata de la simpAtica Felicia Balifio
Quiel, estudiante del cuarto afio de
la Facultad de Arquitectura de la
Universidad de PanamA, quien re-
side en la barriada de San Fran-
cisco, en PanamA. Felicia fue alen-
tada a participar en el program
por dos amigas suyas (una de ellas
labor actualmente como regular
en el Ramo de Arquitectura), que
trabajaron como ayudantes estu-
diantiles el aiio anterior. "Llen6 la
solicitud, la entregu6 y tuve suer-
te", dice al explicar su ingreso al
program. Como ayudante estu-
diantil, las funciones de Felicia se
limitan a las de dibujante. "Estoy
aplicando los conocimientos adqui-
ridos en la Universidad y he com-
prendido algunas cosas que no
habia logrado entender", agrega
Felicia, observando a continuaci6n
que le gustaria realizar una mayor
diversidad de tareas. Esta es la pri-
mera experiencia en el trabajo de la
guapa Felicia, quien advierte en-
seguida haber contribuido en dos
tesis haciendo disefios y otras la-
bores relacionadas. Graduada en el
Colegio Nuestra Sefiora de Beth-
lem, Felicia es hija del fallecido
constructor Manuel Balifio, a quien
atribuye parte de su interns por la
arquitectura, y la Sra. Cecilia vda.
de Balifio. Su inclinaci6n por el
dibujo la llev6 a tomar cursos de

Medlallas en olivarianos - 40 Aos

Gilberto Chac6n Plata
Uno de los atletas panamefios
que logr6 dejar en alto el nombre
de su pais en los pasados Juegos
Deportivos Bolivarianos, fue el le-
vantador de pesas Gilberto Chac6n
Plata, quien obtuvo tres medallas
en la fuerte competencia que se
registry en su categoria. Gilberto es
un consagrado empleado de la Di-
visi6n de Transporte a Motor del
Chac6n Plata, hijo del conocido
olimpico panameiio Jos6 Encarna-
ci6n Chac6n Plata que represent a
PanamA en las Olimpiadas de 1938
y ha dedicado toda su vida a inn-
pulsar ese deported, hizo honor a la
fama de su padre.
Participando en la categoria mos-
ca (114/2 libras), Gilberto obtu-
vo la medalla de plata en la mo-
dalidad de envi6n y la de bronce
en arranque y en total levantado.
En estas iltimas dos s61o lo supe-
raron los representantes de Colom-
bia y Venezuela, que tuvieron una
brillante actuaci6n en las Olimpia-
das de Munich, donde se concentra-
ron los mejores atletas del mundo.
Aunque bueno, su rendimiento
en los Bolivarianos fue afectado
por una ligera dolencia, que ya ha-
bia sentido afios antes, al represen-
tar a Panama en los Juegos Centro-
americanos y del Caribe celebrados
en la capital del Istmo.
La hoja de servicios deportivos
de Chac6n Plata a su Patria se re-
monta a los VI Juegos Bolivaria-
nos celebrados en Maracaibo entire
el 22 de agosto y el 16 de septiem-
bre de 1970. En esa ocasi6n gan6
medalla de plata en levantamien-
to a pulso y de bronce (2) en arran-
que y envi6n.
En los Panamericanos de Cali
celebrados en 1971 logr6 clasificar
para las finales, pero no tuvo mayor
La mejor exhibici6n ofrecida por
Gilberto en sus pocos afios de re-

presentar a PanamA en competen-
cias deportivas, la dio en un tor-
neo centroamericano de pesas efec-
tuado en diciembre de 1972 en El
Salvador, en el que gan6 todas las
modalidades de su categoria. En
esa ocasi6n compitieron los cinco
paises del Istmo Centroamericano
y Panama.
En mayo pr6ximo volvera a re-
presentar a Panama, en esta oca-
si6n en el torneo Centroamericano
y del Caribe de Levantamiento de
Pesas. "Me siento optimista; y creo
que estar6 al final entire los tres
primeros lugares", sefiala Gilberto.
Antes de ingresar a la Divisi6n
de Transporte Motorizado del Canal
en junio de 1972, Chac6n Plata tra-
baj6 por casi 3 afios-hasta el 12
de mayo de 1972-con la Fuerza
Area de los Estados Unidos acan-
tonada en Fuerte Kobbe.
Anteriormente habia trabajado
en el Departamento de Manteni-
miento de la Universidad de Pa-
nama, como encargado de obtener
los pedidos efectuados mediante
6rdenes de compras.
El padre de Gilberto, que logr6
para PanamA medalla de plata como
levantador de pesas en las compe-
tencias olimpicas de 1938, es ac-
tualmente entrenador de levanta-
miento de pesas en la Academia de
Cultura Fisica del Estadio Juan
Dem6stenes Arosemena de Pana-
ma, en done su hijo se inici6 en
1964 y donde a6n permanece.

ha encargado de supervisor los en-
trenamientos de su hijo.

Paseo a Nata
El domingo pr6ximo tendra 1u-
gar el gran paseo quo el Club
Health Bureau, de empleados de
la Direcci6n de Salubridad hara a
la hist6rica ciudad de Nata de los
Caballeros en la Provincia de Cocl.
Los autobuses tendran s61o un
punto de partida, que sera el Esta-
dio Juan Dem6stenes Arosemena,
con el fin de que todos los que to-
men part en el paseo salgan al
mismo tiempo y la caravana de
autobuses llegue a su destino a la
misma hora. Se calcula que llega-
rAn a Nata alrededor de las 8:30
a.m., pues la partida sera a las 5
a.m. en punto.
En vista de los atractivos que po-
see Nata, como ciudad hist6rica,
gran centro industrial, agricola y
ganadero y por la belleza de sus
alrededores, se da por seguro que
este paseo sera un tremendo 6xito.

mas ha logrado motivar a la juven-
tud en donde sirve, es el construido
hace poco en Rainbow City, en el
sector Atlantico del Istmo.
El centro esta a disposici6n de
los casi 350 estudiantes de la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Rainbow City
y de otros j6venes residents en la
No solo es frecuentado por los
adolescents estudiantes de secun-
daria, sino por graduados de ese
plantel y, a6n, por j6venes de los
niveles superiores de la escuela
Bautizado con el nombre de
"Up Rise", el centro de Rainbow
City cuenta con todas las facilida-
des necesarias para que los adoles-
centes de esa comunidad del sector
Atlantico del Istmo se re6nan y se
recreen. Cuenta con un sal6n acon-
dicionado exclusivamente para es-
cuchar misica estereof6nica; un
sal6n para juegos tales como el
ajedrez, damas, "parcheese", etc.;
amplia sala de reuniones; comedor;
cocina; servicios y otras instalacio-
En un future se proyecta habili-
tar en dicho centro una biblioteca
v un sal6n de studios.
Al explicar el significado del
nombre dado al mas reciente de los
centros construidos en la Zona del
Canal especialmente para el uso de
los j6venes, Payne dijo que 61 sim-
boliza el "desarrollo o superaci6n"
de los j6venes.
Y ciertamente que el nombre
ha motivado a los adolescents de
Rainbow City, pues el centro ha
constituido lugar de reuni6n por ex-
celencia de los j6venes, que se de-
dican alli a emprender tareas sanas
y constructivas.
Los dirigentes del club, encabe-
zados por Eugene Tucker, gerente
del local, planean diversas activi-
dades deportivas, que realizan en
su propia comunidad.
Elemento motor de todas esas
actividades es el propio Tucker,
quien, como todos los demas di-
rectores de los Centros Juveniles
que operan en la Zona del Canal,
ha sido seleccionado con base a su
experiencia en la participaci6n y
planeamiento de actividades de esa
Dentro de lo que defini6 como
political propia de los centros,
Payne dijo que estos tienden a es-
timular la creatividad de los j6ve-
nes, e incorporarlos a sus respecti-
vas comunidades planeando activi-
dades que se proyecten hacia ella.
El propio centro es disefiado de
manera que los j6venes se sientan
como en su casa e inspirados a de-
sarrollar tareas y actividades que
contribuyan a su superaci6n tanto
fisica como intellectual.
