subjects as the "Effect of Gib-

Women's Year

Extended by

President Ford
President Gerald R. Ford has
announced the extension of the
Observance of International Wom-
en's Year, 1975, through June 30,
1976. In an Executive Order, the
President extended the existence
of the National Commission on the
Observance of International Wom-
en's Year, 1975, and ordered the
Commission to continue to work
the additional 6 months.
International Women's Year in
the United States was designated
by a Presidential proclamation
dated January 1974, following a
resolution adopted earlier by the
United Nations General Assembly
designating 1975 as International
Women's Year.
The President's proclamation read
in part, "This Administration is
committed to providing an oppor-
tunity for women to participate on
an equal basis with men in our
national life. We support the
Equal Rights Amendment, we are
moving vigorously to ensure full
equal employment opportunity for
women in the Federal service, and
we are enforcing the law requiring
similar efforts in business and in-
stitutions which receive Federal
contracts and assistance."
It further stated, "In observing
International Women's Year, we
should emphasize the role of wom-
en in the economy, their accom-
plishments in the professions, in
Government, in the arts and
humanities, and in their roles as
wives and mothers."
The Presidential proclamation
called upon the Congress and the
people of the United States, inter-
ested groups and organizations,
officials of the. Federal Govern-
ment and of the State and local
governments, educational institu-
tions, and all others who can be
of help to provide for the ob-
servance of International Women's
Year with practical and construc-
tive measures for the advancement
of the status of women.

Canal Employees' Dogs

Score in RP

It was dogs, not people, that
were the focus of attention, but
some outstanding dogs brought
Panama Canal employees and their
dependents into prominence at the
annual outdoor dog show held by
the Club Canino de PanamA (CCP)
at the Pacific Saddle Club.
Astucia de Gegar (CO), a Ger-
man Shepherd owned by Customs
Enforcement Officer David Higger-
son, took first place in Category I
competition (Shepherd Dogs, Guard
Dogs, Defense and Work Dogs)
and went on to win Best in Show.
The Higgerson family, of Pan-
ama City, came in for further re-
cognition when 11-year-old Tim
and 16-year-old Frank took top
honors in their respective age
groups in the Junior Handlers

Ex-Canal Employee Is Apple Butter Expert

The Salem Times-Register of
North Carolina recently ran an
article with pictures showing for-
mer Canal employee Burman
Spangler and a group of neighbor
senior citizens making apple butter
in a big copper kettle outside the
Spangler home in Bent Mountain.
Spangler was a foreman in the
Maintenance Division's Wood-
working Shop and retired in 1966.
According to the feature story,
he and his friends, who call them-
selves "the South Salem Apple

Butter Experts," stir the mixture
of apples, sugar and cinnamon
continuously for 14 hours, starting
early in the morning, stirring away
until dusk. This year they made
two batches, the first yielded 30
gallons and the second 35 gallons
of delicious apple butter. Com-
bining the work with the hours of
friendly chatter and a covered dish
dinner, they all have a good time.
One of the pictures shows that
even the reporter got into the act
of stirring the apple butter.
