Curundu JHS

To Be Evaluated

For First Time
Once every 10 years, the U.S.
Secondary Schools in the Canal
Zone undergo a comprehensive
evaluation by the Middle States
Association of Colleges and Sec-
ondary Schools. Since this was last
accomplished in 1965, Balboa High
School and Cristobal Junior-Senior
High School will complete the
process in February of 1975 for the
fifth time.
Curundu Junior High School will
also be evaluated in February, but
it will be the first such experience
for this school.
It is through this evaluation proc-
ess that secondary schools are offi-
cially recognized as accredited edu-
cational institutions. Regional asso-
ciations are charged with this re-
sponsibility and the Canal Zone
schools are in the jurisdiction of the
Middle States Association. The two
high schools have been continuously
accredited since they first applied
in 1929.
In previous evaluations, the de-
termination was based primarily on
how well the school did what it
claimed to do. In 1972, however,
the association adopted a set of
standards that must be met by the
school in addition to the original
basis. These standards are general
in nature and are in the eight major
areas of philosophy and objectives,
curriculum, educational media serv-
ices, guidance, health services, stu-
dent activities, physical facilities,
and staff.
Self-evaluations have been com-
pleted by the three schools and
committees charged with this work
by the Middle States Association
are composed of American edu-
cators from South America, the
Caribbean, and the middle Atlantic
states in the United States. Balboa
High School will be the first eva-
luated on February 4, 5, and 6.
Curundu will be next on Feb-
ruary 18, 19, 20, and Cristobal's
will be on February 25, 26, and 27.
Separate committees have been
appointed for each school.

New Spanish Language


Laboratory Inaugurated


The Canal organization's total
immersion Spanish language pro-
gram has taken a big step forward
with the installation of a new lan-
guage laboratory considered to be
the most modern on the Isthmus.
Already in use to a limited de-
gree, the laboratory will be an in-
valuable adjunct to the total im-
mersion Spanish courses which were
implemented in August 1973 for
policemen and extended last year to
employees of other divisions whose
jobs call for a knowledge of Span-
ish. This is a 6-week, full-time
course of instruction that replaced
the old system of teaching for
2 hours a day.
Gov. David S. Parker officially


inaugurated the laboratory on Mon-
day. Also present for the ceremony
were: Gordon M. Frick, Personnel
Director; Ronald L. Seeley, Deputy
Personnel Director; and S. J.
Wiechert, Training and Manage-
ment Development Staff.
The language laboratory was in-
stalled in the Persomiel Bureau's
Training Center on Corozo Street
by the manufacturers, Educational
Electronics, Inc., of Oklahoma,
which sent one of its technicians
here for the installation. Techni-
cians from the Electronics Section
of the Canal's Electrical Division
will service the laboratory.
Despite the price tag of less than
$12,000, the laboratory will provide
the Canal's Spanish program with
an entirely new dimension-that of
students hearing their own voices,
enabling them to hear their mis-
takes, to make adjustment and
measure their progress.
The physical characteristics of
the laboratory include a large con-
sole operated by the instructor and
20 places, desk style booths, where
students sit to listen with earphones
and speak through individual micro-
phones. Each student is provided
with a blank tape cassette on which
he records a program of instruction
and his own voice. By simply in-
serting the cassette and pressing a
button, he activates the tape and
proceeds with his lesson, repeating
words and phrases heard over the
earphones.
At the conclusion of each lesson,
he replays the tape to compare his
speech with that on the tape. The
student can erase his own voice and
repeat the exercise for improve-
ments but a built-in safeguard pre-
vents accidental erasure of the
program. The lab is equipped
to handle six different programs
simultaneously.
The instructor can monitor in-
dividual students without their

The Canal Zone police force just
has to be one of the best educated
around.
According to a recent "educa-
tional profile" compiled by the
Police Division, 157 of it's 329 per-
sonnel have completed 1 to 3 years
of college or possess one or more
college degrees. Many have earned
or are earning their degrees while
working full time.
Three persons have their masters
degree. Of the other 36 Police Divi-

Don't Invite U.S. Job

Seekers to Canal Zone
Budgetary limitations and man-
power restrictions maintained on
Federal agencies limit considerably
job opportunities in the Canal Zone.
Consequently, employees should
not encourage friends and relatives
in the United States to visit the
Canal Zone for the purpose of seek-
ing employment with the Canal
organization or other local Federal
agencies.
Recent occurrences show that
coming to the Canal Zone in the
hope of obtaining employment,
without having a firm job commit-
ment, can result in a long, costly,
and fruitless venture.

Police personnel are not only
taking academic courses but are also
receiving specialized and technical
training. In recent years 51 people
have been sent ofi-the-Isthmus,

has been provided by the Police

Ascent of Man

Film Scheduled

For JWB Jan. 27
The Canal Zone Library's 1975
Film Program will present the sec-
ond part of Jacob Bronowski's As-
cent of Man at 7:30 p.m., on Jan-
uary 27 at the JWB auditorium.
Part 2, entitled Harvest of the
Seasons covers nomad cultures, the
beginnings of agriculture, the do-
mestication of animals, technology
in the village and settled civiliza-
tion.
Bronowski covers 27 countries to
narrate the history of man in a
warm, dramatic and beautifully
constructed color format.
The Ascent of Man is a 13 part
series which is being presented on
a weekly basis through May 19.
Each session will feature a 50-min.
segment of the remarkable film.
Admission is free and the public
is invited to the showings.


$ Can Be Saved

By Proper Use

Of Refrigerator

Save energy and money by using
your refrigerator-freezer correctly.
... Limit the number of times the
refrigerator door is opened. It will
reduce the running time of the com-
pressor and save electricity.
S. .Do not refreeze completely
thawed foods. In an emergency,
foods can be refrozen if still firm
and ice crystals remain; however,
these foods should be used as soon
as possible.
. . . Purchased frozen foods are
correctly packaged. Foods for home
freezing should be wrapped in mois-
ture-vapor-proof materials to pro-
tect food against loss of moisture.
. . . Check the flexible gaskets
around the door occasionally to be
sure they are sealing tightly.
S . . Defrost frequently so that
frost does not build up. Excess frost
increases the running time and
wastes electricity.
. Double or triple recipes,
freeze extra food and serve later.
This not only saves electricity but
is a real convenience when you need
a quick meal.

'Where Lilies Bloom'

To Be Presented as

Club Benefit Film
The recently released film, Where
the Lilies Bloom, is based on the
true experience of four modern day
Appalachian youngsters. Vera and
Bill Cleaver first let the story be
known in their book of the same
title.
The book has been named a New-
berry Award Honor book and will
be found on library shelves through-
out the Isthmus. The Newberry is
given for contributions in the area
of Children's Literature.
Where the Lilies Bloom, has been
selected as this year's benefit film
by the Isthmian College Club. It
will be shown Friday, January 24,
at the Balboa Theater. Tickets are
$2.50 each and may be purchased
outside the Balboa Retail Store.
Other Newberry Award winners
made into movies by the same pro-
ducer have been Sounder, And Now
Miguel, My Side of the Mountain,
and Island of the Blue Dolphins.

Volunteer Training Course
In view of the need for volunteers
at Corgas Hospital, the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
is planning a volunteer training
course to be held on Tuesday,
January 28. Those who are inter-
ested in attending the course should
call 52-6669.


Four thousand dollars constitutes a lot of nickels and dimes, and that's
exactly what Canal Zone children collected for the UNICEF program the
past Halloween. The smiling youngsters surrounding Clarence C. Payne,
the Governor's Advisor on Youth, are proud of this achievement and hope
that all Canal Zone children will share their satisfaction in having given
so generously to feed and aid underprivileged children around the world.
Holding the check with Payne are (left to right): Cheri Cofer, Juri Nagaii,
Luis Alcailde, Gina Epifani, and John Haynes. The check recently was
drawn for submitting to the U.S. Committee on UNICEF.



SCN Television to Expand


Its Color Programing


SCN Television will increase its
programing in color by more than
16 hours per week, starting Jan-
uary 19.
The increase in color programing
is the result of a long-planned con-
version from kinescope recording
(16 mm films made from a television
picture tube) to 1 inch videotape at
the American Forces Radio and
Television Service (AFRTS) in Los
Angeles. The tape service has been
operative for the past year on Navy
ships, but SCN-TV will be the first
land-based station to program from
the new source.
Equipment to playback the video-
tapes was recently received at SCN
and has been installed by the net-
work's engineering staff. It encom-
passes the latest components to
assure a superior picture in black
and white and a clean color signal
for those with color receivers. All
equipment is compatible with U.S.
broadcast standards.
Besides providing a live-quality
picture versus the grainy film pro-
duct, the new system saves money.
Film processing costs are eliminated
and a great deal of airmail postage
is saved by the smaller and lighter
videotape shipments. Initial cost of
the new equipment is expected to
be recouped many times over by
the savings; all the videotape can
le erased and reused when the pro-
grams have completed their circuit
of AFRTS stations.
The sports events normally sched-
uled on the weekends, which have


been in black and white, now are
broadcast in color. Other programs
to be seen in color include: The
Carol Burnett Show, Maude, The
Weekend Tonight Show, Animal
World, Sixty Minutes, Wild King-
dom, All-Star Wrestling, CBS Sports
Spectacular, The Way It Was, The
Buck Owens Ranch Show, Pass-
word, The Sonny Comedy Revue
and Tony Orlando and Dawn.
The conversion to 1 inch video-
tape for both better black and white
quality and for color was based on
tests conducted at SCN-TV in the
summer of 1973. Equipment avail-
able from commercial suppliers was
checked in on-air tests and certain
modifications were recommended to
make the equipment comply with
U.S. broadcast standards.
SCN-TV's next phase in the color
conversion will be the installation
of two new color film cameras, just
received, which will enable the
airing of color films and color slides.
These cameras soon will be opera-
tional, probably by March.
The final step in the conversion
to color will be the acquisition of
color studio cameras for local studio


production.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


Ex-C.Z. Guide Welcomes


A New Arrivals to Fort Sill


A gift of a 26-foot flying bridge fishing cruiser was re-
cently presented by William L. De La Mater, Aide to
the Governor-Civic Council Staff Officer, to the Chris-
tian Servicemen's Home in Corozal. De La Mater pre-
sented his vessel, the Mater-D, to the group Decem-
ber 18 for use by servicemen stationed in the Canal
Zone. Left to right are: Charles Gustafson, son of the


Reverend Gordon Gustafson, Pastor of the Crossroads
Bible Church; De La Mater; Pastor Gustafson; and the
Reverend Donald Winn, Director of the Christian
Servicemen's Home, which is part of the Overseas
Christian Servicemen's centers. Emilio Nash, of Taller
Nash at the Club de Yates y Pesca in Panama, donated
his time in the maintenance of the boat.


A recent issue of the Lawton
Oklahoma Press carried a feature
story on the good work being done
by Mrs. Charles W. Class in the
extending of friendship to wives of
allied officers stationed at Fort Sill.
Mrs. Glass is the former Ligia Diaz,
a native of Panama who was for
several years a Canal Zone Guide-
Interpreter with the Panama Canal
Information Office.
As hospitality chairman of the
Fort Sill Officers' Wives' Club, Mrs.
Glass, who a little more than 3 years
ago was on the receiving end, has
taken special interest in the wel-
coming of wives of officers from
foreign countries. Aided by her bi-
lingual talent and a working knowl-
edge of at least two other languages,
Mrs. Glass has given an "all Amer-
ican welcome" to wives of allied
officers in seven languages with a
little help. She places particular
emphasis on welcoming these wom-
en at the earliest opportunity, noting
that "different languages have dif-
ferent ways of saying things . . . but
welcome, once understood, is a very
special greeting with a definite
meaning of 'here's friendship'."


Large Group of Canal Retirees Qualify



For 7.3% Cost of Living Adjustment


Approximately 237 Canal employ-
ees, including the group of 21 re-
tirees who had more than 40 years
of service to their credit and were
recently presented retirement cer-
tificates by Gov. David S. Parker,
opted to end their Canal service the
past month. By retiring before the
end of the year, these retirees will
reap the benefits of the 7.3 percent
cost of living adjustment granted to
Federal Government annuitants.
Among 158 retirees, whose re-
tirement documents have been pro-
cessed, are 24 U.S. citizens, the
majority of whom will be making
their retirement homes in the United
States.

(Viene de la pdgina 1)


de la Oficina de Adiestramiento y
Administraci6n.
El laboratorio de lenguas fue ins-
talado en el Centro de Adiestra-
miento de la Direcci6n de Personal,
en la Calle Corozo, por sus fabri-
cantes la empresa Educational Elec-
tronics, Inc., de Oklahoma, que en-
vi6 a uno de sus tdcnicos. El labo-
ratorio es operado por tecnicos de
la Secci6n de Electr6nica de la
Division de Electricidad del Canal.
El modern sistema dara al pro-
grama de ensefianza del espaiiol de
la empresa del Canal una nueva di-
iension: los estudiantes tendrAn
oportunidad de escuchar sus pro-
pias voices, lo que les permitira de-
tectar sus errors, hacer las correc-
ciones pertinentes y llevar un control
de su progress.
El laboratorio include una con-
sola operada por el instructor y 20
cabins, en done los estudiantes
tienen espacio para escuchar me-
diante auriculares y hablar a trav6s
de micr6fonos. Cada estudiante re-
cibe un "cassette" en blanco en el
que graba el program, segiin se le
instruya, y escucha su propia voz.
Solamente con insertar el "cassette"
y presionar el bot6n, pone en fun-
cionamiento la grabadora e inicia
su lecci6n, repitiendo las palabras
y frases que escuche.
Al terminar cada lecci6n, pone a
funcionar la grabaci6n para compa-
rar su pronunciaci6n con la del ins-
tructor. El estudiante puede borrar
su voz y repetir el ejercicio, hasta
alcanzar mejoras en la pronuncia-
ci6n, pero un mecanismo especial
evita que se borre accidentalmente.
El laboratorio estA equipado de


suerte que permit grabar seis pro-
gramas en forma simultinea.
El instructor puede escuchar en
un moment dado a cualquiera de
los estudiantes sin que este sc en-
tere, y puede intenrumpir el pro-
grama de cada uno para hacer los
comentarios individuals. Tambi6n
el professor puede comunicar entire
si a dos o mis estudiantes. Detris
de la consola hay un tablero que
puede utilizar el instructor mien-
tras se comunica con uno o mas
estudiantes.
Carlos Garcia de Paredes, Super-
visor del Programa de Espaniol,
subraya que la flexibilidad del labo-
ratorio permitirA a los instructors
establecer nuevos programs, ade-
mas de los que han sido ensayados
anterionnente. Antes de que se ins-
talara el laboratorio se habian em-
pleado grabadoras y libros sobre
grabaciones, pero los estudiantes
hablaban al mismo tiempo sin tener
la oportunidad de escuchar sus
voices por separado.
El laboratorio en modo alguno
reemplazara las sesiones regulars
en los salones de classes, que inclu-
yen dramatizaciones y periods de
preguntas y respuestas, que conti-
nfan aplicAndose en el program.
Los graduandos del curso y otros
que deseen mejorar su espafiol po-
drin hacer solicitud al instructor, a
fin de que se programen cursos de
acuerdo a sus necesidades indivi-
duales. Durante las horas regulars,
cuando no se encuentren trabajan-
do, o despues de las horas labora-
bles, tendrAn oportunidad de usar
el laboratorio.
