A full train of red-white-and-blue coaches and engine is the Panama
Railroad's contribution to the Canal Zone celebration of our Nation's
bicentennial. When the railroad cars arrived at the Balboa Car Shop
for routine maintenance, it was decided a star-spangled paint job would
be appropriate this year and would not cost any more than the regular
repainting. So the blue body was painted a deeper blue, the yellow
stripes were painted red and Edgar M. McLennon hand-painted white
stars on the front of the engine and above the coach windows. The
Bicentennial Special makes seven daily transcontinental runs carrying
passengers in a style just right for our country's 200th birthday.

Frank Berry Is Named

Chief, C.Z. Fire Division
Frank Berry, who has more
than 25 years of firefighting ex-
perience in the Canal Zone, has
been named Chief of the Fire
Division. He succeeds Kenneth
T. Daly, who recently retired.

Berry was born and educated
in Columbus, Ohio, and first
came to the Isthmus in 1947 with
the Fire Division of the Engi-
neering Branch of the U.S. Army.
He returned to the Canal Zone
in 1950 when he went to work
with the Fire Division in Balboa.
He was promoted to sergeant in
1956 and the following year was
transferred to Gatun and was
moved up to first sergeant, a rank
which the Fire Division no longer
uses. During a reduction in force
in 1960, he was made supervisor
fire inspector and then served
briefly with the Police Division,
returning to the Fire Division in
His next promotion in the Fire
Division came in 1966 when he
was made lieutenant and appointed
as station commander of the Rod-
man Fire Station. He moved up
to captain in 1972 and last year
was named commander of the
Cristobal District.
In addition to his many years of
on-the-job experience, Chief Berry
is a graduate of Delehenty Fire
School in New York and has at-
tended numerous training courses
on the Isthmus.
He lives in Balboa with his
wife, Dalila, a native of Guarare,
Republic of Panama, and daughter
Cindy Sue, a junior at Balboa
High School. A son, Frank, at-
tends a technical school in Waco,
Chief Berry is a member of

To Top Post
Two key promotions in the
Motor Transportation Division have
been announced by the Director
of the Transportation and Termi-
nals Bureau.
Billy M. Lohr, who has been
Acting Superintendent of the Motor
Transportation Division since Jan-
uary of this year, was named Su-
perintendent of the division and
William D. Ritchie, who has been
Acting Chief, Southern District,
has been appointed Chief, South-
ern District.
Originally from New Castle, Pa.,
Lohr and his wife, Martha, came
to the Canal Zone from California,
stopping here in 1959 while on a
cruise aboard their 32-foot sailboat.
They liked it so much they decided
to stay. Lohr went to work for
the Canal's Engineering Division
as a general engineer in the
Mechanical Branch. After working
there for about 7 years he served
with the Construction Division
briefly and then transferred to the
Locks Division, where he was plant
engineer for approximately 4 years.
Next he returned to the Engineer-
ing Division, this time to the
Projects Branch, remaining there
some 3 years before joining the
Motor Transportation Division in
1974, as assistant superintendent
of the division.

Health officials remind Canal
Zone residents, particularly those
planning vacations abroad in the
near future, about what "shots"
are needed for travel.
Persons going from the Canal
Zone to the United States do not
have to make special provisions
because no shots are required to
enter the States. But a smallpox

ROA To Hold

Convention in

Balboa April 24
The annual convention of the
Canal Zone Department No. 53,
Canal Zone Reserve Officers Asso-
ciation of the United States will be
held at 1 p.m., April 24, at the
BPO Elks Lodge 1414 in Balboa.
Department president Lt. Col.
John Banasick, USAFR, will pre-
side over the convention through
the installation of officers for the
1976-77 term. All ROA members
are welcome to attend as observers;
however, only accredited delegates
are authorized to vote.
The club will be open for ROA
meetings from 10 a.m. and food
and refreshments will be available.
The Canal Zone Department
consists of three chapters: Army,
Navy, and Air Force. All three
chapters will be caucusing prior
to the convention time of 1 p.m.
Air Force Chapter president
Lt. Col. Bill De La Mater, USAFR,
has requested that all USAF ROA
members, and particularly mem-
bers of the Canal Zone Air Force
Chapter, should attend the lunch-
eon meeting at 11 at the Elks
Club. Dress is sport shirt or gua-
yabera for the chapter and depart-
ment meetings.



vaccination is required to get back
into the Canal Zone.
It is wise to have a current
yellow fever vaccination, which is
good for 10 years, even if not
officially required. Both smallpox
vaccinations, good for 3 years, and
yellow fever shots should be en-
tered on the traveler's yellow In-
ternational Vaccination Record.
These two vaccinations will be
sufficient to meet the requirements
of most countries in the world but
some nations also require cholera
Check in advance the require-
meats for the countries you expect
to visit. Cholera vaccination re-
quires two shots several weeks
apart, the second one no later than
6 days before entry into the coun-
try requiring it.
Numerous other protective vac-
cinations and measures are avail-
able that may be advisable for
some areas of the world. Persons
contemplating visits to areas which
may have relatively poor sanita-
tion and health standards should
check with their Public Health
Physician or Health Center Nurse.

Pancake Breakfast

Scheduled For Sunday
The Annual Pancake Breakfast
prepared by women of Our Lady
of Good Counsel Church, Gam-
boa, will be held on Sunday,
April 11 (Palm Sunday), from 6
a.m. to noon, in the Gamboa Civic
Held in conjunction with the
yearly Cayuco Race, the Pancake
Breakfast provides a hearty meal
for a reasonable price, $1.50 for
adults and 50 cents for children
under 10 years of age.
All are invited.

Some people live in the past,
some are content with the present,
and some dream of the future. John
R. Gough, Sr., is in the enviable
position of being able to combine
all three.
As a Budget Program Analyst
in the Canal Company's Budget
Branch, he spends his days in a
world of projected budgets and
programs for 2 or more years
The rest of the time he collects
things of the past and uses them
to enrich the lives of Canal Zone
youngsters of the present.
The list of things he collects is
endless ranging from antique radios
(the oldest dates back to 1910) to
sea shells and from rocks to Canal
Zone memorabilia.
And his interests are as varied.
Just a few are electronics, nature
study and story telling.
More important, he manages to
weave all this into his main in-
terests: church and children.
His home in Ancon is a drop-
around-anytime place for neigh-
borhood children and his Sunday
school students. The gatherings
often turn into what he calls "Sar-
dine Time" where his accomplished
story telling and magic acts make
the sardines, crackers and Kool-
Aid snacks taste like a feast.
Gough also uses his magic act
to teach Sunday school. To dem-
onstrate one point, he prints "the
word of God lives forever" on a
sheet of paper, rips it in small
pieces, cups it in his hand, "acci-
dentally" allows a rolled up piece
of paper to drop from under his
ann, picks it up, and asks the kids
which hand holds the paper he
ripped up. But when he opens his
hands, both sheets of paper are
whole and on both are printed
"the word of God lives forever."
Perhaps the most popular spot
in the Gough home is the shop
where he teaches his young friends
to build small radio broadcasting
sets. Over the past 5 years, boys
and girls have built about 60 sets
that can broadcast from one room
to another. There is only one re-

quirement for getting into the se-
lect group-each youngster must
memorize either the Gettysburg
Address or the Books of the Bible.
Gough and his wife, Kathleen,
began collecting as soon as they
married in February 1946. As the
collections grew in size and value,
he decided they should be shared.
And now he has collections of
fossils, minerals and seashells on
exhibit in the Chicago Field Mu-
seum, the Puerto Rico Museum
and the Canal Zone Museum, as
well as World War I and World
War II artifacts on loan to the
193d Infantry Brigade. There are
still many special items in his small
home museum.
Gough was born, grew up and
went to high school in Chicago,
Ill. He considers himself mostly
self taught in both his professional
and personal activities. He has
completed the International Ac-
countants Society correspondence
courses, Newspaper Institute of
America writing course, and in-
service courses in management;
budget programing; operations re-
search and analysis; and commu-
He arrived in the Canal Zone
as an Army sergeant in 1944. After
his discharge in 1946, he worked
for the Panama Engineer District
as a Property and Supply Officer
until 1951 when he was employed
as an auditor with the U.S. Army
Audit Agency, Caribbean Regional
Office. In 1958 he joined the Canal
organization and has worked in his
present field since that time.
The Coughs have two sons,
John II, 29, a maintenance ma-
chinist with the Canal water sys-
tem, and William, 27, who lives in
Westwego, La., and three grand-
children, John III, William IV and
Linda Lee.

Mrs. Gough was comptroller
for the Strategic Communications
Command, South, when she re-
tired in 1972.
Gough is a member of the
American Accounting Association,
Antique Wireless Association, the
Elks Club, American Legion, and
a past post commander of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Also he is treasurer or the Cross-
roads Bible church, the "em-
ployees' church" he helped to
build, treasurer of the Maritime
Faith Mission Fellowship, Panama
Field, and a member of the Chris-
tian Fellowship of Magicians.
For the past 8 years he has
served as coordinator for the Gov-
ernor's Prayer Breakfast Com-
When his sons were growing up
he was a cubmaster, pack chair-
man, neighborhood commissioner,
merit badge counselor, and he
holds the Scouter's Key,

Todo un tren, con sus vagones y locomotora pintados en rojo, blanco
y azul, es la contribuci6n del Ferrocarril de PanamA a la celebraci6n

ceria azul fue pintada de un azul mAs profundo, las rayas amarillas fueron
pintadas de rojo y Edgar M. McLennon pint6 a mano las estrellas blan-
cas al frente de la locomotora y arriba de las ventanas de los vagones.

Oente en la oticia

Algunas personas vivcn en el
pasado, algunas estin felices con
el present, y otras suefian con el
future. John R. Cough, Sr. estA en
la envidiable posici6n de poder
combinar estas tres condiciones.
Como Analista de Programas
de Presupuesto en el Ramo de
Presupuesto de -la Compaiiia del
Canal, pasa sus dias cn un mundo
de proyecciones y programs pre-
supuestales que cubren 2 o mis
ainos en el future.
El resto de su tiempo lo utiliza
para coleccionar cosas del pasado
que le sirven para enriquecer la
vida de los j6venes de la Zona
del Canal de hoy dia.
La lista de cosas que colecciona
es interminable y va desde radios
antiguos (el mAs viejo es de 1910)
hasta conchas de mar y dcsde rocas
hasta recordatorios de la Zona del
Y sus aficiones son variadas. Le
gusta la electr6nica, el studio de
la naturaleza y relatar cuentos.
Lo mAs important es que hace
todo esto, ademAs de sus intereses
principles que son la iglesia y
los nifios.
Su residencia en Anc6n es un
lugar al cual pueden Ilegar a cual-
quier hora los nifios de la vecin-
dad y sus alumnos de catecismo.
Las reuniones se toran con fre-
cuencia en lo que 61 llama "la
hora de la sardina," cuando con
sus muy bien logrados relates de
cuentos y actos de prestidigita-
ci6n convierte la reunion en un
banquet a base de sardinas, ga-
lletas y refrescos.
Cough tambi6n utiliza sus pres-
tidigitaciones para enseiiar cate-
cismo. Por ejemplo, describe "la
palabra de Dios vive eternamente"
en un pedazo de papel, lo rompe
en pedacitos, lo mantiene en una
mano, "accidentalmente" deja que
un pedazo de papel enrollado se
le caiga de debajo del brazo, lo
recoge y pregunta a los niios
en c6al mano tiene el papel que
acaba de romper. Al abrir las
manos, ambos pedazos de papel
estAn en una sola pieza y en
ambos aparece escrito "la palabra
de Dios vive eternamente."
QuizAs el rinc6n mas popular
de la residencia de Cough es el
taller en donde ensefia a sus
amiguitos a construir pequefios
radiotransmisores. Durante los 1l-
timos 5 afios, nifios y nifias han
construido unos 60 aparatos que
pueden transmitir de un cuarto
a otro. S61o hay un requisite para

poder entrar a tan select grupo-
todos deben aprender de memorial
el Discurso de Gettysburg o los
Libros de la Biblia.
Gough y su esposa, Kathleen,
empezaron su colecci6n cuando
se casaron en febrero de 1946.
A media que creci6 en valor
y en tamafio, decidieron que de-
bian compartir su colecci6n. Y
ahora tiene coleccioncs de f6siles,
minerales y conchas del mar en
exhibici6n en el Museo Fields
de Chicago, el Museo de Puerto
Rico y el Museo de la Zona del
Canal. Tambidn tienen prestados
a la Brigada 193 de Infanteria
artefactos de la I y II Guerra
Mundial. Todavia tienen muchos
otros articulos especiales en su
pequefia casa museo.
Gough naci6, creci6 y fue a la
escuela secundaria en Chicago,
Illinois. Se consider autodidacta
en cuanto a sus actividades pro-
fesionales y personales. Ha com-
pletado cursos por corresponden-
cia con la "International Account-
ants Society," el curso de redac-
ci6n del "Newspaper Institute of
America" y ha torado cursos in-
teros de administraci6n, progra-
maci6n de presupuesto, investi-
gaci6n y anilisis de operaciones
y de comunicaciones.
Lleg6 a la Zona del Canal co-
mo sargento del Ejercito en 1944.
Despues de salir del Ejrcito en
1946, trabaj6 para el Distrito del
Ingeniero de Panama como ofi-
cial de Propiedades y Abastos
hasta 1951 cuando fue empleado
como auditor con la Agencia de
Auditoria del Ej6rcito de los Es-
tados Unidos, en la Oficina Re-
gional del Caribe. En 1958 se
uni6 a la empresa del Canal y
desde entonces ha trabajado en
el mismo campo.
Los Gough tienen dos hijos,
John II de 29 afios, mecanico tor-
nero de mantenimiento en el sis-
tema de acueductos del Canal y
William, de 27, que reside en

Westwego, Louisiana. Tambien
tiene tres nietos, John III, Wil-
liam IV, y Linda Lee.
Cough es miembro de la Aso-
ciaci6n Americana de Contado-
res, de la Asociaci6n "Antique
Wireless," la Legi6n Americana,
el Club Elks, y ha sido Coman-
dante de Puesto de los Vete-
ranos de Guerras' Extranjeras.
