Canal To Take Part - January 19-21


The Panama Canal will have two booths
at the Agricultural and Industrial Fair in
Oci on January 19 to 21. The Canal
exhibits will be highlighted by a Panama
Canal documentary film, a model of Mira-
flores Locks from the Canal Zone Museum,
and selected Canal scenes shown by
Small children attending the fair will
have an opportunity to ride the Panama
Canal burritos, Mancha and Gato, who
are becoming seasoned fairgoers. The
burros normally are part of the menagerie
at Summit Gardens.

National Security

Seminar For Zone
The topic will be the National Security
of the United States, the dates will be
February 11, 12, and 13, and the place will
be the Balboa Theater. If you're a U.S.
citizen and want to hear what promises
to be a first-class educational program on
current national security of the United
States, plan to attend. Each session will
be 4 hours long.
Presenting the program will be a team
of military personnel and lecturers from the
Industrial College of the Armed Forces in
Washington, D.C. Armed with the latest
information, they will discuss the full
array of subjects encompassed by national
This discussion is presented regularly in
12 to 14 cities of the United States each
year. It will be a one-time affair in the
Canal Zone, with little likelihood that it
will be repeated any time soon.

The Oci Fair program includes riding
exhibitions, bullfights, cockfights, folklore
presentations, popular dances, stock com-
petitions, and the first draught animal
contest to be held in the Republic.
Lodging in Oc6, Chitre, and Santiago
will be available for those who attend the
fair and want to stay overnight. Reserva-
tions may be made by telephoning the

Passengers of the Athenic of the Shaw Savill Line, above, were among those who have
heard running commentaries on ships' transits through the Canal recently. Microphones
used by members of the Canal Zone Guide Service staff are connected to the ships' public
address systems. Landmarks, locks operation, and the Canal's construction and function
as a funnel for world commerce are noted and explained. This service, added recently, is
available to shipping lines upon request. Fred Berest, acting supervisor of the guide service,
is at the microphone above.

The Flag Is Up


The spirit of Carnival came swishing
across the Isthmus in the wake of the holi-
day season, as the traditional flags were
raised in Panama and the Canal Zone, to
mark the season of preparation.
The flag went up in Panama on Jan-
uary 5, and 4 days later top Panama Canal
officials participated in hoisting the banner
high in the Canal Zone. Those taking part
in the Wednesday flag-raising included the
1962 Carnival Queens of Panama and the

Who's Boss In This Outfit?
"The number of traffic engineers in
any community is in direct relationship
to the population-except that there are
more traffic engineers than there is
population because of 'out-of-town'
visitors," according to Mel Millard,
traffic technician of the E & C Bureau.
Mel's not bitter, though. He makes
the remark with a cheerful grin when-
ever bearded about this, that, or the
other thing that's "wrong" with Zone
traffic control situations.

Canal Zone-Queen Charito I and Queen
Irene I.
Pre-Carnival festivities got an early start
(the 4-day Carnival starts on February 23)
with a brief party at the Tivoli Guest
House immediately after the triangular
blue-and-white Carnival banner was raised
there. Panama's Carnival Junta, headed by
Enrique Rogers, and the Canal Zone Car-
nival Committee headed by Frank Hirt,
both participated in the flag-raising and
subsequent activities.
Music for the occasion was provided by
the 79th U.S. Army Band of Fort Kobbe
and a typical "Murga" in gay Carnival
Canal Zone participation in this year's
Carnival will include two floats for the
Canal Zone Queen and her Ladies-in-
Waiting, both of which will appear in the
traditional Tuesday parade. One of the
floats also will participate in the Sunday
Pollera Parade.
Both Mr. Rogers and Mr. Hirt have
pledged themselves to a Carnival truly to
be remembered-and fun aplenty for all.

See You On The Pitch, Old Chap

Cricket Season's Underway On The Isthmus

You've read about it in British mysteries.
You know it holds the same spot among
British sports enthusiasts that baseball does
in the United States. But did you know
that it is popular on the Isthmus, among
both Panamanians and British?
The game, of course, is cricket. Con-
taining elements of both hockey and base-
ball, the game has been played for many
years in the British Isles and has spread
around the world. On the Isthmus, games
usually are played on Sunday afternoons
at Paraiso, Rainbow City, and Mount
Hope, throughout the January-June season.
The British Ambassador to Panama,
George E. Vaughan, is a batsman on the
Panama Cricket Club, which also includes
a number of other British Embassy per-

sonnel. This team participated in the
season opener this year, opposing players
from the Royal Yacht Britannia at Paraiso
on New Year's Day. The Yachtsmen won,
scoring 84 runs to 79 for the local team.
What is cricket and how is it played?
With an able assist from A. Scott Francis,
Panama American reporter, we offer the
There are 11 players on a full team. All
11 take to the field on the non-batting team,
while two batsmen at a time participate
from the batting team.
The "wickets," in front of which the
batsmen stand, are 22 yards apart. It is the
batsmen's duty to keep the ball from strik-
ing them. The bowler (pitcher) attempts
to throw the ball past the batsman so it

can strike the wicket, thus scoring an out.
Other ways in which outs are made: Either
batsman can be "run out" by having his
wicket struck while he is making a run, or
"caught out" by a fielder catching a fly
There are no "strike outs" in cricket. If
an "over" (six balls) is bowled without any
runs being scored, bowling is switched to
the other end, the second bowler and
batter, and the whole field reverses itself,
then play continues. Neither are there any
"foul balls." All hits are good, but a bats-
man may or may not choose to try for a
run on any hit.
Runs are scored when the batsmen pass
each other while changing wickets as the
result of a hit or a wild throw by the

bowler. Although the batsman is out it a
fly ball hit by him is caught, a run can be
scored if he and his fellow batsman pass
each other while the ball still is in the air.
The cricket equivalent of hitting one "out
of the park" scores six runs if the ball left
the boundary of the field before touching
the ground and four runs if it went outside
the boundary after touching the ground.
Runs on such hits are scored automatically,
the batsmen not being required to run from
wicket to wicket as in ordinary play.
Isthmian cricket matches usually consist
of one 11-man inning for each team, with
each team's inning taking about 3 hours.
Matches, therefore, usually are started
about noon and concluded about dusk.
Be seeing you "on the pitch."

* People In The Spotlight*

Like all experienced policemen, Earl Janssen of the Balboa Elm M I
Police District is trained to handle emergencies. In 4 years on
the police force, Janssen has handled his share of such matters
in line of duty. Early this month, however, he earned the plaudits
of fellow Zonians for his quick action in an emergency that arose
while off duty.
Two boys came to the Balboa Gun Club at Farfan, where
Janssen was taking his leisure, and reported that a woman was
lying on Hideaway Beach who had "something wrong with her."
Janssen didn't hesitate or waste time. He accompanied the boys
to the beach, found Clara Fuentes of Panama City there, then
helped move her to his car and Gorgas Hospital.
The woman died several days later from apparently self-inflicted
injuries, despite the efforts of Gorgas doctors. But the medicos
praised Janssen's prompt action. "Without him, she wouldn't have
had even the little chance she did have," one of them commented.

A former Marine who has spent 20 years on the Isthmus is
chairman of this year's Canal Zone Carnival Committee. Frank
E. Hirt, a clerk with the Canal Zone Postal Division at Rodman
Naval Station, served on the committee last year as transportation
coordinator. This year he got the big job.
Married to the former Mercedes Arosemena of Panama, Hirt
says his wife doesn't object to the time he's spending on Carnival
planning, even though she has a 5-week-old son to care for. "In
fact," he says, "she's helping me with a lot of the things that have
'W.- to be done."
Chairman Hirt and his eight fellow committeemen are working
closely with members of the Panama Carnival Junta to make sure
this year's 4-day Carnival is a rousing success.
An enthusiastic waterskier, Hirt is former president of the Canal
Zone Water Ski Club and Honorary President of the Panama Water
Ski Club.

A native of Missouri and onetime professional musician whose -: "
itchy feet led him to "a lot of kicking around" when he was young,
has been named Superintendent of the Service Center Branch to
top off-thus far-a quarter-century career on the Isthmus.
C. W. Kilbey came to the Canal Zone in 1937 from a job with
the Corps of Engineers in Kansas City. A native of St. Joseph, Mo.
Kilbey says he left there "at a very early age" to pursue a
professional musician's career in a number of western States.
Well known on the Isthmus for his newspaper articles about
people, places, and things in Panama and the Canal Zone, Kilbey "
also has written for magazines and has sold a number of articles I
to Stateside publications.
The new Service Center Superintendent and his wife have three
daughters living on the Isthmus, two of them married and one still
in high school.

That tape measure being used by Balboa
Chief Admeasurer Robert Medinger
checked out Albert H. Oshiver of Wash-
ington, D.C., as 1 cubic yard of long-
distance swimmer, as he prepared to pay
the smallest transit fee in the history of
the Panama Canal-45 cents, a half-rate
Oshiver completed a 29-hour swim from
Gatun to Gamboa on Sunday, Decem-
ber 30, and the next day paid his transit
fee and received a Master Key to the Pan-
ama Canal in the grade of "Self-Propelled
Navigator (Honorary Pilot)" from Governor
Fleming. He also received an official
receipt for his transit fee.
The swimming oceanographer gave con-
siderable credit for his success in swimming
Gatun Lake to "all the people who helped,
including Pedro Torres." Young Torres,
who lives in Gamboa, accompanied Oshiver
in a cayuco throughout the swim.

Under the heading "Gente en la Noticia"
in the Spanish section, you will find pic-
tures and items about three other "People
in the Spotlight." They are Miguel
Corc6, Jr., 40-year-old native of the Zone,
who early this month was named Pro-
tocol Officer of the Canal organization;
Dr. Teodoro F. Arias of the Gorgas Hos-
pital staff, who recently was awarded the

Order of Vasco Nfiiez de Balboa by
Panama in recognition of his many con-
tributions to Isthmian life and medical
well-being; and Seymour I. Barkowitz, a
teacher and student counselor in the Canal
Zone schools since 1955, who has been
temporarily assigned as Acting Probation
and Parole Officer, a new position provided
for under the new Canal Zone Code. Our
congratulations to all of them.

Can You Prove Y
First Question: Are you a U.S.
Second Question: Were you born in
the Canal Zone or the Republic of
Third Question: Can you prove your
If your answers to the first two ques-
tions are "yes," and to the last question
is uncertain or a mumbled, "Well . .
I think so," it'd pay you to check in
with a gentleman who will arrive on
the Isthmus for a 1-week visit on
January 14.
The gentleman is William T. Jarmon,
Assistant District Director for Citizen-
ship, U.S. Immigration and Naturaliza-
tion Service, San Antonio, Tex. He will
be here to provide advice and assistance

you're A Gringo?

to those who are U.S. citizens but need
or want proof of that fact.
Mr. Jarmon is coming to the Canal
Zone at the request of Governor
Fleming, who initiated the action in
response to Civic Council urging.
And, in case you don't understand
the reason for all this, the fact is that
U.S. citizens born on the Isthmus face
a problem in proving their citizenship
without a "certificate of citizenship."
If you're in doubt about your own status,
better arrange to see Mr. Jarmon at
Room 101, Balboa Heights Administra-
tion Building during regular office hours
on January 16 and 17, or at the
Cristobal Immigration Office between
8:30 a.m. and noon, or 1 to 4 p.m. on
January 18 and 19.

Canal Transits

By Dictionary
The Japanese language is giving the
Panama Canal boarding officers fits.
These versatile gentlemen, who board
each ship arriving at Canal ports and
measure it for tolls if it is about to transit,
as a rule have little trouble communicating
with the crews of foreign ships. There
usually is someone aboard who speaks
The trouble started with the arrival this
past year of small ocean-going Japanese
tuna boats which came straight from Japan
and which carry only Japanese-speaking
fishermen and crew.
Sometimes they are able to get an inter-
preter, but most of the time the boarding
officers must write down their questions
in English, help the crew look up the
words in an English-Japanese dictionary,
and then translate as well as they can
before the business at hand can be
The boarding officers say that everyone
is very polite, helpful and patient-but it
takes time.
A hundred or more of the Japanese fish-
ing boats have passed through the Canal
during the past year and some of them are
making their first transits. Many of them
sail from Cristobal for the fishing grounds
off South America and Africa and return
home after 2 or 3 years.

Pictures, Pictures, and...
There should be some very excep-
tional and unusual pictures taken of
the Isthmian waterway this Sunday,
when 180 employees of Kodak from
Panama are scheduled to visit the Canal
and make a partial transit aboard the
"Las Cruces."
To add surety to the probability,
Kodak officials will offer a cash prize
to the employee taking the best picture
during the tour-and most of the em-
ployees are camera owners, so . 180
multiplied by how many shots equals
an awful lot of pictures.

you. And there are courses in the mornings,
afternoons, evenings, and Saturdays.
Dr. Charles L. Latimer, Dean of the
Junior College, reports that 750 students
are expected to enroll for the second
semester, and 50 percent of them may be
"part-time" collegians. Despite the fact
that it is a "junior" college, C.Z.J.C. does
offer courses on the third and fourth year
levels. Visit Room 311 and find out what
they have that interests you.

mercante del mundo. impulsado por
energia nuclear, que ha estado en exhi-
bici6n en la Feria Mundial de Seattle,
deberi arribar a Balboa procedente de
la costa occidental el 28 de enero, de
acuerdo con informaci6n recibida por
la Panama Agencies, que represent a
la States Marine Lines en el Canal.
Despu6s de 3 dias de estada en aguas
del Canal, el Savannah transitarA por
el Canal el 19 de febrero en su viaje
hacia los Astilleros Todd en Galveston,
Texas, donde pasarA various meses para
inspecci6n general y mantenimiento.
El Savannah llev6 a cabo su primer
y 6nico trAnsito a travys del Canal el
18 de septiembre, en su viaje de
Savannah, Georgia, hacia Seattle. Un
grupo de invitados oficiales encabeza-
dos por el Presidente Roberto F. Chiari

el Gobemador Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,

vesia parcial a bordo del navio. El

objeto de considerable atenci6n por
parte de los residents del Istmo.


Cuando ocurre una vacant se da aviso
de ello en Boletin de tablero. Con frecuen-
cia un ascenso abre el campo para various
otros, como en reacci6n en cadena. Los
ascensos se efect6an conforme a las exi-
gencias del caso, variando el procedimiento
cuando se tratare de vendedores, ingenieros
o m6dicos, por ejemplo. Pero en lo general
la experiencia, capacidad y conocimientos
son las determinantes. Los aspirantes pue-
den abrigar la confianza de que los propios
m6ritos son los que valen para el ascenso.
