Vol. XIII, No. 25

Friday, December 13, 1974

Jeanne Allen

New Assistant

To Marine Dir.
Mrs. Jeanne R. Allen, administra-
tive officer of the Marine Bureau,
has been promoted to the position
of assistant to the Marine Director.
Among her responsibilities are
preparation of the budget program
for the entire Marine Bureau and
the administrative and personnel
programs for the bureau which,
with its more than 3,000 employees,
is the largest of the Canal organi-
An employee of the Marine Bu-
reau for the past 10 years, Mrs.
Allen, the former Jeanne Rocker,
was born in Ancon and attended
Canal Zone schools. After graduat-
ing from Balboa High School, she
attended and was graduated from
Albany Business College in Albany,
N.Y. Her father, Norman Rocker,
retired from the Panama Canal in
the early 1950s as an administrative
officer in what today is the Engi-
neering and Construction Bureau.
Her brother, Jack W. Rocker, is a
chief engineer (tugs) in the Ports
Mrs. Allen is married to Harry
H. Allen, Jr., a local attorney in
private practice. They have three
children; two sons and a daughter,
all living in the United States.
Following several years of res-
idence in Costa Rica and the United
States, the Aliens came to the Isth-
mus in 1963. Mrs. Alien was em-
ployed with the U.S. Air Force prior
to joining the Panama Canal in No-
vember 1964, when she was em-
ployed as a statistical clerk steno in
the Marine Bureau. She was later
promoted to administrative assistant
and has been administrative officer
of the Marine Bureau since Octo-
ber 1970.
When they can get away from
their official duties, the Aliens spend
time at Cerro Azul in the Republic.
Their vacations are spent on a farn
at Mountain Home, Ark., which is
near a lake and a river and there
is good fishing, good hunting and
a view they are looking forward to
enjoying when they retire.

PC Plans to Offer

of interest in the Canal Zone are
planned for December 19 and 26,
and for January 2, in addition to

accommodate the many visitors ex-
pected during the holiday season.
Further information may be ob-
tained by calling 52-3154 or 52-

Joe Wood to Start New Year

As Chief. Admin. Services Div.

Gov. David S. Parker talks with the owners of the "Golden Hinde" at Pier 18
in Balboa. The ship, which is a replica of the one on which Sir Francis
Drake circumnavigated the world, transited the Canal Saturday en route
to San Francisco, where it will be on permanent exhibit. The owners,
Al Elledge and Art Blum, arrived from San Francisco Friday night to join
the ship for the transit of the Canal on Saturday. They were accompanied
by a contingent of prominent San Francisco businessmen including mem-
bers of the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau. From left are
Elledge, Governor Parker, and Blum.

Dredging Division Conducts Tour

For Panama Engineering Students

Dredging Division machinist

of his fellow students.

Early Deadline
Due to the New Year's holiday
on Wednesday, January 1, dead-
lines for the January 3 issue of the
SPILLWAY will be advanced 1 day.
All material intended for the Jan-
nary 3 issue should be in the Press
Office no later than noon Friday,
December 27. Only urgent material
can be received as late as Decem-
ber 30 and processed in time for
publication January 3.
As in 1973, there will be no issue
of the SPi.LWAY the Friday between
Christmas and New Year's, which
falls on December 27 this year.

bert Mapp, spent 4 hours visiting
the machine, engine repair, weld-
ing, electric and sandblasting shops
and the craneboat Atlas and the
crane Hercules.
The idea for the tour came from
Codrington, who will graduate from
a 2-year program in the College of
Engineering at the end of this term.
He felt his experience as a crafts-
man in the Dredging Division Re-
pair Branch had contributed signif-
icantly to his engineering studies
and for that reason believed his
classmates would benefit from a
field trip to an industrial work site.
C. W. Hummer, Jr., assistant
chief of the Dredging Division,
welcomed the students on their
arrival at the Dredging Division
Julio Rodriguez, a registered Pro-
fessional Engineer who is acting
chief of the Repair Branhanchnd a
graduate of the University of Pan-
ama, directed the tour and ex-
plained the various aspects of the
work done in the shops.

Don't bother to say Happy New
Year to Joseph J. Wood, Jr. On the
first day of 1975, at the age of 37,
he will become the youngest man
ever named Chief of the Admin-
istrative Services Division, which is
a good indication his new year will
be a happy new year.
Joe's story is not a struggle-
along-the-road-to-success story. He
worked hard, did a good job, and
in 13 years he became the boss.
Evaluating his work as student
assistant in 1956, his first boss gave
him high marks on "ability to get
along with others," "dependability,"
and "willingness to cooperate."
This week, his present boss,
Harold L. Anderson, spoke of the
same characteristics. And, he added,
that Joe not only does things right
himself but manages to persuade
others to do things right without
their even knowing they are being
Joe, who was born in Panama
Hospital and grew up in Ancon, is
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph J.
Wood, Sr. His father was a super-
visory auditor in the Comptrollers
Division before his death in 1957.
His mother lives in New York with
his two sisters.
After completing Balboa High
School and receiving an associate
in arts degree from Canal Zone Col-
lege, Joe enrolled at the University
of Florida.
In 1959, he received a bachelor
of science degree in business ad-
ministration with a major in labor
economics, and then continued for a
year of graduate work. This was in-
terrupted when he was called to
serve 6 months in the Army Reserve
In September 1961, he joined
the Panama Canal organization as
a graduate intern (Administrative
Services) with rotating assignments
in each of the division's branches.
He was promoted to Administrative
Services Assistant in 1963 and,
since April 1970, has been Chief
of the General Services Branch and

Joseph J. Wood

Assistant Chief of the Administra-
tive Services Division.
Last July, he received an Out-
standing Performance Award with
a Quality Step Pay Increase.
A life-long sports buff, Joe
played football, basketball and base-
ball in high school and college, and
captained the Canal Zone College
baseball team.
He still takes part in sports activi-
ties. He plays the infield with the
Pacific Softball League, pitches in
the Slowpitch League, but is most
proud of being a nine-handicap
golfer and is quick to show off a
wristwatch he won in a Summit
Golf Club Championship Tourna-
Joe is a member of the Elks
Lodge 1414, on the Board of Trus-
tees of the Committee for Aid to
the Handicapped; on the Nominat-
ing Committee of the Heart Asso-
ciation, and on the Board of Trus-
tees of the "Dollar Club." This is
an organization formed in October
1972 to give help to needy children
who do not qualify for aid from any
other organization. Each of the 220
members contribute a dollar each
pay period to the club's fund.
In 1971 Joe married the former
Beverly Bowman. They have three
sons: Craig, 3; Brian, 2; and Scott,
5 months.

LA Civic Council

Hears Discussion

On Treaty Talks
The December 4 Latin American
Civic Council Executive Session
was highlighted by a discussion of
why the United States and Republic
of Panama are negotiating by John
Blacken, Chief of the Political Sec-
tion of the U.S. Embassy in Pan-
Because of his concern that Canal
Zone residents be informed as much
as possible about the negotia-
tions, Governor Parker had invited
Blacken to speak at the meeting.
Blacken made a similar presenta-
tion to members of the U.S. Civic
Councils on Tuesday (December 10).
A report on this meeting will be
carried in next week's SPILLWAY.
Blacken opened his remarks with
the explanation that there is a limi-
tation on what could be said at this
point about treaty negotiations but
within those limitations he would
provide background, discuss reasons
for the present negotiations, and
answer questions that did not re-
quire a classified answer.
He said that from the Panama-
nian viewpoint they were dissatis-

'Disney on Parade' to Perform on Isthmus During Holidays

Four Walt Disney characters, the
advance echelon of a 70-member
cast called "Disney on Parade,"
which will be presenting produc-
tion numbers from fantasyland in
Panama during the holidays, will
delight children in Stevens Circle on
Friday, December 20 at 3:00 p.m.
The four, Mickey Mouse, Donald
Duck, Pluto and Snow White, will
whet the appetite of Canal Zone
audiences for the more elaborate

production numbers they will be
presenting at the Gimnasio Nuevo
Panama between December 26 and
January 5.
In Panama, the entire cast will
perform on the largest portable
stage in the world-135 feet long
by 56 feet wide. Including the
stage, sound equipment, costumes,
scenery and props, the Disney on
Parade troup is carrying some 90
tons of gear.

"Disney on Parade" was most re-
cently presented at the Luna Park
in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and at
the Maracanazinho stadium in Rio
de Janeiro, Brazil.
The first performance in Panama
is scheduled for Thursday, Decem-
ber 26, at 8:30 p.m. There will be
one performance each weekday
evening at the same hour. On
weekends curtain time will be 7:30
p.m. There will be no performance

on Tuesday, December 31, which
has been designated a day of rest
for the cast.
The "Disney on Parade" shows
in Panama are sponsored by the
National Institute of Sports.
Among the most popular produc-
tion numbers is the "Three Caba-
lleros," featuring Donald Duck and
his friends Pancho Pistolas of Mexi-
co and Pepe Carioca, from Brazil.

Tuition Refund University of Idaho Choir

Plan Guidelines To Perform Here Dec. 19

Are Announced ,

Since a number of questions have
been raised concerning the appli-
cability of the Tuition Refund Plan
to the recently announced Asso-
ciate in Technology Program, the
Personnel Bureau has provided
some guidelines.
In general, training must be re-
lated to the employee's present du-
ties or duties of a position for which
he is on a formal career ladder. The
following courses offered at Canal
Zone College meet either of the re-
(quirements and will lbe approved
for the program:
Mathematics courses
English grammar and composition
courses including Speech, but ex-
cluding literature courses
PSY 150-Introduction to Psychol-
PSY 236-Psychology of Personality
PSY 240-Developmental Reading
BA 123-Business Mathematics
BA 125-Economics
BA 210-Written Communications
in Business
Chemistry and physics courses
will be approved when it can be
shown that there is an appropriate
relationship between the employee's
present job, or future position for
which he is on a fonnal career
At the present time, the Regis-
trar, Canal Zone College, is at-
tempting to make special arrange-
ments for some courses to be given
on the Atlantic side.
Further information on these
courses will ble supplied as soon as
it becomes available.

Picture postcards, snapshots and
schoolday mementoes kept alive
happy memories of the Canal Zone
for Dot Kennedy of Denver, Colo.
But it was when she received the
Balboa Union Church calendar in
the mail each year that she expe-
rienced an anxious longing to see
again the place where she and her
three sisters were born and grew up.
This year she decided to do some-
thing about it. Following a number
of long distance telephone conver-
sations with her sisters, who also
yearned to see the land of their
childhood, the four former Kalar
girls, accompanied by their hus-
bands, came to the Isthmus for a
Jean McAndrews, Harriet Mc-
Neal, Olive Krouse and Dot Ken-
nedy are the daughters of the late
John Kalar, who was chief clerk at
the Office of the Balboa Port Cap-
tain until 1938. Their mother,
Helen, was employed in the former
commissary annex and retired in
1952. The girls were born at Ancon
Hospital and home was 770-C on
Barnebev Street in Balboa.
They attended school in Balboa
and were graduated from Balboa
Hi gh School and Canal Zone Junior
College. For Harriet, who left for
the United States soon after she
graduated with the first class of the
junior college in 19.35, this was the
first visit, as it was for Jean who
leftin 1939. Olive, who left in 1942,
and Dot, in 1951, had returned to
the Isthmus for a short visit many
\ears ago.
Through the years, the four sis-
ters were graduated from Penn
State University. Jean, I[arriet and
Olive married Penn State graduates.
Dot's husband, Roy, who was for-
merly employed in the Canal's

Claims Branch and also a promi-
nent player on the Diablo Baseball
Team, received his degree from
Wake Forest University, after he
left the Canal organization in 1951.
The four couples have 14 children
and 11 grandchildren.
Jean and Francis McAndrews,
who reside at Moscow, Pa., are
both teachers and owners of Lake
Hide-Away Swimming Club near
Moscow; Harriet and Mark McNeal
live in Charlotte, N.C., where Mark
is a prominent businessman and
owner of an art gallery. Dot and
Roy Kennedy are Government em-
ployees in Denver, and Olive and
Len Krouse live in Springfield, Pa.,
where Krouse, a former Penn State
football star, is the president of an
elevator company.
After seeing old friends in the
Canal Zone and Panama, various
trips to the tourist attractions in
Panama, including visits to El Valle,
Taboga, to see El Morro Island
where they stayed when they were
in the Girl Reserves Camp during
schooldays, and San Bias, and a
partial transit of the Canal reminisc-
ing and telling their husbands "how
it used to be" and "look at it now,"
the four sisters enthusiastically
agreed that many significant changes
haN e occurred on the Isthmus. Their
consensus was that Panama and
the Canal Zone are even more beau-
tiful than they remember, the Canal
Zone is more cosmopolitan, but
seems smaller than they remember.
They were most impressed by the
amount of Spanish that is spoken
in the Canal Zone. Also, now the
three husbands who had not been
lher before will know what the
others arc talking about when and
M)solone sa\ s rememberr in the
Canal Zone, remember in Panama."

Arrangements were completed
recently for a model study of a
portion bf the Canal channel in
Gatun Lake with a view towards
improving the flow of ship traffic
in the waterway.
Visiting the Isthmus to conclude
the plans were Dr. Hans Edstrand,
director general of the Swedish
State Shipbuilding Experimental
Tank, and Dr. Nils Norrbin, chief
of the Ship Dynamics Division.
The study will evaluate a pro-
posed channel alignment improve-
ment of the curves at Mamei be-
tween San Pablo Reach and Cam-
boa Reach to permit two-way traf-
fic by the largest vessels that can
be handled by the locks. These
"Panamax" ships of 950-foot length
and 106-foot beam began transit-
ing in April 1972, and have in-
creased to a current level of about
80 transits per year. During a later
phase of the study, Canal pilots
will participate in the maneuver-
ing of ships through the modified
section of the Canal using the
Swedish steering and maneuvering
ship simulator.
The simulator is a full scale ship's
bridge mock up which is built
around a hybrid computer facility
consisting of two large analogue
computers and one digital com-
puter. The visual display seen
through the bridge "windows" is a
closed circuit TV system projecting
an electronically generated real
world image of navigation aids,
simple topographic shapes and the
ship's bow. A radar picture and a
bird's eye view are also available.
While here, Dr. Edstrand and
Dr. Norrbin made a partial transit

aboard the Marcona Trader, held
discussions with officials in the Ma-
rine Bureau and the Engineering
and Construction Bureau and met
with the Pilot Advisory Board.

A happy foursome of former Canal Zone residents who were known
locally as the Kalar girls recently returned to the Isthmus for a nostalgic
visit, this time with husbands. All four (left to right), who now are: Jean
McAndrews, Harriet McNeal, Dot Kennedy, and Olive Krouse, were born
and reared in the Canal Zone. The sign behind them (actually the last
three letters of the word cafeteria) appropriately enough says "ria," which
is Spanish for "laugh." And there was much gaiety and laughter as the
four genial ladies met with childhood friends, renewed old acquaintances,
and, together with their husbands made new friends on the Isthmus.

I To Be Offered at C.Z. College

The Canal Zone College will offer
a new course, SOC 200, Introduc-
tion to Afro-Caribbean Cultures, in
its spring semester schedule of
Designed to serve as both an
area studies and a black studies
course, Introduction to Afro-Carib-
Iean Cultures provides a survey of
African and later Asian culture con-
tribiuions to the development and
contemporary life of Caribbean na-
tions. African ethnic and cultural
backgrounds at the time of Euro-
pean colonization of the Carilbbean
area provide the base from which
the study develops. The dominant
early impact of African culture in
the West Indies, Central America,
and northern South America is
supplemented with the East Indian
and East Asian influences which

became increasingly important fac-
tors in the 19th century develop-
mcnt of the area.
The socio-economic adjustments
attending the abolition of black
slavery in the Caribbean area and
the long neglected contributions of
African and Asian peoples in the
development of the railroads and
the Panama Canal are given em-
phasis. The survey is concluded with
a comprehensive view of the con-
temporary roles and trends of these
cultures in the Caribbean area

numerous other items of interest to
the Civic Councils were discussed,
including repair of roads. The Gov-
ernor pointed out that fund limita-
tions made it impossible to do any
but the most essential road repair
work this year.
Council members who would not
be attending further executive ses-
sions said their farewell to the Gov-
ernor and thanked him and his staff
for their cooperation and assistance.
The Governor, in turn, expressed
his appreciation for the services and
interest in community affairs that
the members had rendered.
Lt. Gov. Richard L. Hunt an-
nounced that a new leash law has
been drafted and will go to the
Governor for approval. If it is ap-
proved, it will be published in the
SPILLWAY. He explained that in-
dividuals could not be penalized for
violating the new law until 30 days
after its provisions had been made
Colonel Hunt also mentioned that
rates for the care and treatment of
animals at animal hospitals would
be increased, effective January 1,
1975, and this information would
also be published in the SPILLWAY.
Each council member was given a
copy of the new rate schedule.
Samuel H. Blenman, president of
the Paraiso Civic Council, brought
up the subject of lighted Christmas
displays during the holiday season,
and asked if there were any restric-
tion on displays without lights.
Governor Parker explained that the
only reason for the limitation on
lighted displays was to conserve
energy and any other type of
decoration was encouraged.
Blenman stated that several res-
idents of his townsite would open
their homes on Christmsas Day to
military enlisted men living in
barracks away from their families.
Colonel Hunt asked him to develop
a list of families who would like
to take part in the program and
assured him that the program would
receive adequate publicity, and
staffing with the military.
In response to remarks by Al-
fonse E. Alexis, a representative of
the Paraiso Civic Council, that the
three sites selected for lighted
Christmas displays in the Canal
Zone would benefit few people
since there was little traffic in those
areas at night, the Governor said
the sites at Cristobal High School,
Balboa High School and the Cam-
boa-Santa Cruz Retail Store would
be reviewed.
