Fair at Bocas
Music, pictures and live enter-
tainment furnished by the Panama
Canal and the U.S. Armed Forces,
are contributing to the color of the
Regional Fair at Bocas del Toro
this year.
The fair, which was opened
Thursday by President Demetrio
B. Lakas of Panama with the assist-
ance of officials from the Canal
Zone and Panama, will continue
over this weekend.
The Panama Canal is presenting
an exhibition of movies and color
pictures in a new pavilion. The
pictures show the operation, history
and future of the Panama Canal
together with various points of in-
terest around the Canal and the
Canal Zone. Music at this exhibit
is being furnished by Lucho Azct-
rraga and his group.
The Armed Forces have furnished
the 79th Army Band to give con-
certs on the fair grounds in the
colorful little town situated on an
island on the Atlantic side. In addi-
tion, the band will take part in
parades during the days that the
fair is in progress. The Armed
Forces also will be represented by
a group of clowns who will perform
daily as part of the entertainment.
Also, among the Armed Forces
attractions are an exhibition of
SCUBA equipment, an exhibition
of photographs and models of
Southern Command Navy craft and
the ever popular parachute jump
tower for the children.
Other U.S. Government agencies
taking part in the fair are the U.S.
Information Service with educa-
tional films of space travels and the
astronauts and the Interamerican
Geodetic Service with a special

The little town of Bocas del Toro,
capital of the province with the
same name, is situated on the Bas-

Sea, 160 miles northwest of Pan-
ama City. The island was dis-
covered by Christopher Columbus
in 1502 and is noted for its beau-
tiful beaches and picturesque at-
During this weekend it will be
easy to visit this island since the

Gridders To Square Off

Tonight in Jamboree

The excitement of football will
fill the air tonight as the annual
Jamboree at Tiger Stadium offi-
cially heralds in a new gridiron
season in the Canal Zone.
The traditional event takes on
added significance this year as it is
dedicated to Luke C. Palumbo,
founder of the classic football game
which has been a highlight of At-
lantic side activities since 1950.
Palumbo, a counselor at Cristobal
Junior-Senior High School will be
retiring in the near future.
Festivities begin with pregame
activities at 6:15 p.m. with the
assembly of competing teams fol-
lowed by the parade of cheerleaders
and the Jamboree Queens led by
Queen Cheryl Olson of Cristobal
High School accompanied by Queen
Cheryl Alien of Balboa High School
and Canal Zone College Queen
Karen Moses. They will be followed
by the parade of colors by the Cris-
tobal High School ROTC color
guard and the playing of the Na-
tional Anthem.
A ceremony honoring Palumbo
will follow the playing of the Na-
tional Anthem. The queens will
then be escorted to the grandstands
by the team captains and the first

contest gets underway at 7 p.m.
with the Cristobal High Tigers
meeting the Balboa High Bulldogs.
Balboa High will play Canal Zone
College in the second contest and
Cristobal High will oppose the
Green Devils of Canal Zone Col-
lege in the last contest.
The team winning the most con-
tests will be declared Jamboree
champion and be awarded the
Jamboree trophy.

GonzAlez explained the method
of analyzing water samples from
various collection points in the
Canal Zone, illustrating with color
slides the various phases of the
technical studies conducted by the
Water Quality Control Section. The
study was begun 18 months ago.
GonzAlez, who earlier this year
attended a seminar in Argentina on
contamination of water resources,
was second in command of this
study from the start.
The seminar in Buenos Aires in-
cluded modern methods for the
establishment of criteria on the
quality of water and the treatment
of sewage and the reuse of drainage.
The new ideas acquired by the
Panamanian chemist have been of
great value to the studies made by
the Water Quality Control Section
in setting up norms for the quality
of water in the Canal Zone. These
norms will be of importance for
planning the use of hydrologic re-
sources of the Canal.
The talk by Gonzalez at the sem-
inar in Panama was especially in-
teresting to many of the delegates,
a number of whom asked for more
detailed information that could be
used in their respective countries.
Some questioned him on the possi-
bility of the use of available equip-
ment and technical assistance.
The sanitary engineers attending
the seminar were guests of the
Canal during a visjt to the locks at
Miraflores and a partial transit of
the Canal aboard the launch Las

Scouts Get


Thank You
Canal Zone Boy Scouts who at-
tended the 1973 Boy Scout Jam-
boree-East in Moraine State Park,
Pa., last month have received the
personal thanks of President Richard
M. Nixon for gifts which the boys
presented to the President's repre-
sentative at the jamboree.
The letter was addressed to Paul
Broussard, an employee of the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau, who served as Scoutmaster
of Troop 8012, one of two troops
formed from the Canal Zone dele-
gation. Normally, Broussard is
Scoutmaster of Troop 21, sponsored
by the Balboa Union Church.
While at the jamboree, Troop
8012 hosted Michael Farrell, the
President's representative, and .pre-
sented him with a bow and hunting
spears made by Panama's Choco
Indians. Also presented to Farrell
was an attractive mola given by
Manuel Herrera, a Cuna Indian
Boy Scout from Troop 44 on Cora-
z6n de JesAs Island. Manuel's trip
to the jamboree was sponsored by
Canal Zone scouters and other
interested persons.
The text of President Nixon's
letter follows:
"Dear Scouts:
"This is to thank you for the
splendid gifts which Mr. Michael
Farrell accepted on my behalf at
the 1973 Boy Scout Jamboree-East.
The bow and hunting spears made
by the Choco Indians of South
Panama are valued additions to my
special collection of artifacts, and
I was delighted to learn that Ma-
nuel Herrera's tribe, the Cuna
Indians of the San Bias Islands,
fashioned the superb "Mola." All
of these mementos reflect the ar-
tistry and craftsmanship of the
people of Panama, and they will
serve as a constant reminder of your
"A unified world, working for
peace and progress, begins with in-
dividuals of different nationalities
meeting and exchanging ideas, and
I hope that your experiences at the
Jamboree were most rewarding.
"With my best wishes for the
years ahead to each of you and to
Mr. Paul Broussard,

Navigation Aid
As part of a continuing program
of improving the Panama Canal
channel and eliminating navigation
hazards, work was started last week
on leveling off the top of DeLesseps
Island located in the Buena Vista
Reach in Catun Lake.
The project, designed to improve
vision across the curve in Bohio
Reach, will involve the removal of
some 380,000 cubic yards of earth
and will reduce the elevation of
the island from 115 feet above lake
level to about 30 feet.
Dredging Division forces started
the work with bulldozers and work-
men removing underbrush and top
soil. After the removal of all soil
that can be taken out without blast-
ing, a survey will be made so Canal
engineers can determine the amount
of drilling and blasting necessary to
bring the height of the island down
to the required elevation.
By permitting pilots to get a
clear view across the curve in that
part of the Canal channel, it is ex-
pected that one of the potentially
dangerous hazards to Canal naviga-
tion will have been removed.
The work is estimated to take
about a month to complete.

y flechas de caza fabricadas por los
indios chocoes de PanamL. Tam-
bi6n fue obsequiada a Farrell una
bella mola, donada por Manuel He-
rrera, explorador indio cuna de la
Tropa de Exploradores N9 44 de
Coraz6n de Jesis, en las Islas de
San Bias. El viaje de Manuel al
Jamboree fue costeado por escultis-
tas de la Zona del Canal y otras
personas interesadas.
El texto de la carta del Presi-
dente Nixon dice asi:
Queridos Exploradores:
Sirva la present para agrade-
cerles los magnificos regales que el
Sr. Michael Farrell acept6 en mi
nombre, durante el Jamboree Orien-
tal de 1973 de los Exploradores de
America. El arco y las flechas de
caza hechos por los indios chocoes
de Panamd, constituyen una valiosa
adicidn a mi colecci6n de artefactos
y senti gran satisfacci6n al saber que
la tribu de Manuel Herrera, indios
cunas de las Islas de San Blas, con-
fecciond tan soberbia mola. Todos
estos recuerdos reflejan la maestria
y el sentido artistic de las gentes
autdctonas de Panamd, y servirdn
como permanent recuerdo de la
amistad de ustedes.
Un mundo unificado, que trabaje
para la paz y el progress, comienza
cuando individuos de diferentes na-
cionalidades se reunen e intercam-
bian ideas, y espero sinceramente
que las experiencias que hayan ob-
tenido ustedes en el Jamboree sean
sumamente fructuosas.
Con mis mejores deseos en los
afios por venir para cada uno de
ustedes y para el Sr. Paul Brossard,


Septiembre 14, 1973

Miriam Aranguren, guapisinma ofi-
cinista mccan6grafa de la Divisi6n
de Scrvicios Comunales, es de aque-
las j6venes cuvo optiinismo y agra-
dable conversaci6n la hacen sim-
patica para quienes la conocen des-
de el primer memento. Graduada
del Instituto Panamericano de la
cindad de Panama, en donde tam-
biCn hizo su primaria, Miriam es-
tudia actualmente en aI Universi-
dad de la Zona del Canal. La sim-
patica joven no deja pasar tiempo
sin expresar su gran satisfacci6n por
su actual trabajo, en el cual lleva
apenas 2 meses. Dice: "han sido
suficientes para conocer bien a los
excelentes compafieros y superiors
que tengo". Poco antes de ser nom-
brada en la Divisi6n de Servicios
Comunales trabaj6 por breve tiem-
po en la Direcci6n de Personal.
"S61o las mayores ventajas que se
me ofrecian me hicieron decidirme
por mi actual empleo", relata Mi-
riam, "pues estaba plenamente sa-
tisfecha de mi trabajo en Personal".
En esta dependencia del Canal
sirvi6 como recepcionista, y alli
tuvo gran oportunidad de hacer
buenas amistades, afiade Miriam,
con quien result muy fAcil enta-
blar una amena conversaci6n. In-
mediatamente antes de ingresar a
la Compafifa del Canal estuvo tra-
bajando temporalmente con el Ej6r-
cito, en el Comando Auxiliar de
Logistica. Cuando era alumna del
IPA tuvo su primera experiencia
de trabajo. Fueron los 3 meses de
prictica que pas6 en las oficinas
principles de Kodak Panami en
Paitilla, y los cuales fueron "una
experiencia inolvidable que me per-
miti6 complementary las ensefianzas
te6ricas recibidas en la escuela".
Miriam aspira a ser en un future
cercano una economist o, tal vez,
administradora de negocios. Espera
lograr ese anhelo en los Estados
Unidos v a ello habra de contribuir
su gran empeiio y amor por el es-
tudio. Por afiadidura, se siente aiin
mis alentada por ser ella misma
quien costea sus studios. Su padre,
un ex funcionario del Institute Geo-
d6sico Interamericano (IAGS), falle-
ci6 hace algunos afios. Miriam no
ha pertenecido a entidades fuera
de las de su Alma Mater. Recuerda


Septiembre 14-16-Feria Agrope-
cuaria, Industrial y Turistica de
Bocas del Toro. Presentari este
afio como atracci6n adicional el
II Torneo de Caza Submarina.
Por primera vez participara en la
feria la hermana Rep6blica de
Costa Rica, cuya Provincia de
Linm6n expondrA products agri-
colas. Como de costumbre, la
Zona del Canal de Panam-a ten-
drA participaci6n prominent.
Septiembre 23-27-Festival de la
Mejorana, uno de los aconteci-
mientos tipicos mis populares de
PanamA, que se celebra todos los
anios en GuararB, Provincia de
Los Santos. Una hermosa reina
preside las festividades que in-

Hay que Estar

Preparado Para

Los Accidentes
iCuantas personas que protagoni-
zan un accident de trAnsito hacen
lo que el buen juicio aconseja, en
lugar de dejarse dominar por el
panico o el nerviosismo? Los exper-
tos sobre la material sugieren que el
mejor antidote contra reacciones
impropias en casos de accidents
de esa clase es precisamente saber
lo que hay que hacer cuando ello
Conviene colocar balizas o sefia-
les preventivas a 30 metros o mis
del lugar del accident, para pre-
venir a los usuarios de esa via.
Luego, el propio conductor o un
pasajero que haya resultado ileso
puede asumir la tarea de proteger
la escena del accident y obtener
avuda. Haciendo sefiales con los
brazos o con una linterna se puede
dirigir el trinsito, en tanto llegan
las autoridades competentes.
Mientras el conductor o el pasa-
jero efect'a la tarea de controlar
el transito, uno de ellos debe tele-
fonear a la policia y a la ambulan-
cia, o bien solicitar a alguno de los
conductores que pasen por el lugar
informen por telefono a la policia,
incluvendo datos y condiciones de
los lesionados, para que se envien
los auxilios necesarios.
Conviene, para cualquier even-
tualidad de la naturaleza sefialada,
Ilevar en el auto varias balizas, una
o dos linternas, algunas monedas
para hacer Ilamadas telef6nicas en
aparatos piblicos y una manta.
Al proporcionarse los informes
por tel6fono conviene hacerlo con
calma v claridad, describiendo la
ubicaci6n exacta y ofreciendo otras
guias que puedan ayudar a efec-
tuar un ripido auxilio. Conviene
permanecer en el telefono hasta
que la persona al otro extreme de
la line est6 plenamente satisfecha
de la informaci6n.
