Only 6 Months Old, But It's Done A Lot


The Panama Canal Women's Welfare
Group is only 6 months old, but in this
brief time has helped innumerable groups
of people in Panama by providing assist-
ance they needed to help themselves. This
assistance has ranged from schoolbooks
to roofing material and paint, from hospital
equipment to gas stoves.

And that is exactly the aim Mrs. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr., wife of the Canal Zone
Governor, had in mind when she suggested
forming the group. Now the organization
is to become larger, to give every woman
in the Canal Zone an opportunity to help
someone else, if she wants to do so.
At 9 a.m. on Monday, January 21, en-

The mounted squadron will take part

National Securit'

Those U.S. citizens on the Isthmus who

February 11, 12, and 13 by Gov. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr., have only until February 1
to complete their registration.
The number of those who can attend
will be limited to the theater's capacity-
1,300 persons. Of the total seats, 500 are
being reserved for Panama Canal em-
ployees and their dependents, 500 for
military personnel and dependents, and
300 for other U.S. citizens on the Isthmus.
Topics to be discussed by the six-man
team from the Industrial College of the
Armed Forces in Washington, D.C., will

national Relations, Communism in Action,
Exploration of Space, and Military Security.
Each of the sessions will start at 9 a.m.

lorse Show
who have registered and paid the neces-
sary fee, regardless of age. All entries were
completed early this week.
The show is sponsored by the Canal
Zone Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals and funds raised through it
are used to pay some of the expense of
the Society.
In addition to the special events, the
horse show will include jumping, pacing,
relay racing, and western events. Riders
and horses will be from both the Canal
Zone and the Republic of Panama.
Lt. Col. James D. Green is chairman of
the show and Col. Thomas Marmon is
show manager.

y Seminar

v Open
U.S. citizens employed by the Panama
Canal who would like to attend should
make application for registration through
their respective Bureaus. Military personnel
should apply through their respective
military units. Wives and other adult
dependents who are U.S. citizens are urged
to attend the sessions.
Maj. Daniel M. Leininger, General
Chairman for the Seminar, said those
attending the Seminar should plan to be
present for all sessions, as the program is
designed to present a comprehensive pic-
ture of the National Security of the United
States and the most value can be derived
from it by attending all sessions.
U.S. citizens not associated with the
Panama Canal or the U.S. military organ-
izations on the Isthmus can apply for
registration to attend the Seminar at the
Seminar Registration Desk in the Rotunda
of the Administration Building, Balboa
Heights, or by calling Balboa 1492 or
Panama 2-1660.

largement of the Panama Canal Women's
Welfare Group will be discussed at a
meeting for all women in the Canal Zone,
and the wives of Panama Canal employees
who live in Panama. The meeting will be
in the auditorium of the Balboa High
School Activities Building and all women
interested in the work are invited to attend.

Golf Champions

Signed For Open

Here Next Month
Two of the Caribbean area's most out-
standing golf professionals will be among
those teeing off for a share in the $11,000
Panama Open February 7-11 at the Panama
Golf Club. They are Jim Ferree, last year's
Panama Open champ, and Don Whitt,
Caribbean champion. A number of other
1962 champion golfers from the area also
are expected to participate.
Ferree, who lives at Crystal River, Fla.,
also has notified Panama Open officials that
he plans to participate in the Pro-Am
event on February 6. This popular 18-hole
event precedes the championship play and
teams prominent professionals with district
amateurs. Ferree captured last year's cham-
pionship with rounds of 67-70-73-61 to
finish 11 under par with 277. He ended
the season in eighth position for the
Caribbean Trophy.
Commenting on his impending return to
the Panama Golf Club for this year's Open,
Ferree told local officials, "I consider the
Caribbean circuit a must. I enjoy playing
here. The officials and the galleries have
always been most cordial. And I am not
the only one who shares that high opinion
of this tournament."
Isthmian fans undoubtedly agree with
Ferree, as evidenced by their loyal attend-
ance at the Open each year.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game
The Inter-American Professional Base-
ball Series to be held February 8-13 in
Panama's Olympic Stadium will bring
ballplayers and visitors to the Isthmus
from Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Nica-
ragua. Tickets for the 12-game series
can be obtained by calling the stadium,
Panama 5-0185. Season ticket prices
are: $30 for box seats, $14 for covered
seats, and $6.50 for grandstand seats.
The visitors will be guests of the Panama
Canal for a trip through Gaillard Cut
on the Las Cruces on February 11.

Distance has been no hindrance to the
work of the Panama Canal Women's Wel-
fare Group, whose truck has become a
familiar sight on main roads and byroads
of Panama.
It may be seen in front of hospitals, as
at Chitre, Penonome, and Los Santos,
where hospital equipment was contributed.
Or, closer to the Zone, at Amador Guerrero
Hospital in Colon, where paint was con-
tributed for use in the children's ward,
painting of which was a project shared
with the Doctors' Wives Club of Colon.
Several visits have been made to Matias
Hernandez, Panama City's institution for
the mentally ill, where contributions by the
Panama Canal Women's Welfare Group
included 150 pounds of frozen marlin,
mattresses, and stainless steel mobile serv-
ing carts to facilitate distribution of food
to the patients. Mattresses also were
given the Nicolas Solano Hospital for
Tuberculosis in Chorrera.
Men living in the Old Panama settlement
engaged in building a dispensary for the
community, were cheered to see the Pan-
ama Canal Women's Welfare Group truck
arrive with much-needed roofing. The
men work on the building in their spare
time, and the project also receives assist-
ance from a Spanish women's group which
also does welfare work in the area.
The School for Delinquent Boys in Pan-
ama City boasts a workshop, but has few
materials with which to work. The Panama
Canal Women's Welfare Group has de-
livered two loads of scrap lumber for use
of the boys in the shop.
More than 8,000 books have been
transferred, through the Panama Canal
Women's Welfare Group, from the Canal
Zone to the San Francisco de la Caleta
Library in Panama City for'distribution in
Panama. Each book is stamped in Spanish,
"Donated by the Ladies of the Panama
Books and magazines have been deliv-
ered to the Juan B. Sosa School, and
Panama La Vieja School on the Pacific
side, and to the Las Palmas, Pifias, and
Episcopal Schools on the Atlantic side.
Mateo Iturralde School received a much-
needed 50-gallon water heater for sterlizing
dishes used by the school children who arc
served their lunches. A gas stove was
presented St. Vincent de Paul Orphanage
and School in Colon, and paint was pro-
vided the Cativa School, where parents of
the pupils did the painting.
Through the courtesy of the Panama
Canal Housing Office, a collection point
for donations is located in Building 635,
Balboa. The Atlantic side collection point
is in the old firehouse at Margarita. Almost
any surplus item can be utilized.

Two Panama Canal Lovelies

Attending Fair At Ocu
Two PanCanalites are going to the Agricultural and Industrial
Fair at Ocil this weekend. (There'll actually be more than two
going, but these two are Very Important Persons.) I1
Both of them are attractive young females and undoubtedly will
receive many admiring glances from residents of Herrera Province
and Panama Canal employees who visit the fair.
One major difference between these two fairgoers and others .
who will visit there from the Canal Zone is that the two of whom s1'8-r
we speak will remain in that area indefinitely. That's under-
standable, however, as they have relatives in Herrera Province.
The two fairgoers are 7-month-old heifer calves from the Panama
Canal's Mindi Farm. Like hundreds of other calves from the farm,
these two will be joining the ranks of the Panama cattle industry,
as they are to be awarded as prizes at the fair. The "relatives" they
may see in their new home are calves from
Mindi who have made the move to Herrera Monday, with cockfights, bullfights, horse

* People In The Spotlight*

A man who has spent 55 of his 58 years on the Isthmus of
Panama, having come to the Canal Zone as a 31/-year-old child,
had the thrill some 10 days ago of seeing eight Mindi calves leave
for a new home in Chiriqui Province.
W. C. (Wally) Bain of the Retail Store Branch spearheaded the
effort to raise money with which the calves were purchased and
donated to an agricultural school started in Chiriqui by the
Benedictine Fathers. Contributions ranged from $5 to $50 and
were made by more than 40 Panama Canal employees. Mr. Bain
bought a ninth calf with his own funds for a young farmer with
whom he has been friendly for some years.
Wally has had a camp in the Volcan area for the past 16 years
and became interested in the new school during a visit there last
summer. His original goal was two calves, but individual con-
tributions provided funds for six calves and the Knights of
Columbus contributed funds for two more. They were taken to
Chiriqui by Rafael Santamaria of Cerro Punta.

Fashioning polleras, montunas, tembleques, and other adorn-
ments typical of Panama's national dress no longer is exclusively
done by Panamanians. Mrs. Roger L. Deakins, whose husband is
chief of the Cocoli diesel generating station, can make all these
Isthmian products-and teaches other North American women in
the Canal Zone how it's done. She's even had an article, "My
Pollera," published in the December 1957 issue of PANAMA
- Mrs. Deakins studied pollera-making a dozen years ago and
proved an apt pupil of Mrs. Julia Leignadier. Since that introduction
she has made nine of the colorful dresses, the major portion of
each one handworked in linen and cotton. She does not sell polleras,
but makes them for her family. Her pollera-making classes meet
every Thursday morning and last 2 hours each.
A photo of Mrs. Deakins surrounded by some of her creations
appears in the Spanish section.

If you register for an employment examination to be given under
the Canal Zone Merit System, chances are good that your applica-
tion eventually will come to the attention of Mrs. Narcissus T.
Porter in the Central Employment Office.
As test rating examiner in the CEO, Mrs. Porter is in charge
of the testing section, administering and grading the Merit System
examinations. She's been in her present position 21/2 years. Originally
from Christiansburg, Va., she worked for the Navy in Washington
before coming to the Isthmus in 1946. Since coming to the Isthmus,
she has worked with the Navy, Army, and the Panama Canal.
Her husband, Hoyt, is with the Corps of Engineers here.
Mrs. Porter is in charge of Peace Corps examinations on the
Isthmus, as well as examinations for the various military academies,
in addition to her job examination duties. She has two pieces of
advice for job applicants: You should not apply for a job unless
you're qualified-but many do-and if you have an appointment
for an examination, keep it.

Three Isthmian youths and one former
Isthmian are aboard the California Mari-
time Academy training ship Golden Bear,
which was scheduled to arrive at the Canal
this week for a 2-day stay before transiting
Saturday on its way to Port-of-Spain,
Curacao, and Rio de Janeiro. It is scheduled
to return through the Canal on March 1.
The youths are Michael B. Rudge, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel H. Rudge of Mar-
garita; Tim Kirkby, son of Mrs. Leon
Green of Panama City; Robert Geddes, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Robert T. Geddes of
Gatun; and Tom Wilson, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Neil H. Wilson, formerly of Cristobal
and now of San Francisco.

In "Gente en la Noticia" of the Spanish
section you will find items concerning
several other "People in the Spotlight."
Mrs. Ezra Hurwitz, wife of the doctor
who for many years was Superintendent
of Palo Seco Leprosarium is shown wearing
the Vasco Nfiiez de Balboa, Panama's
highest decoration, which was presented to
her earlier this month by the Government
of the Republic in recognition of the many
services she has provided during her years
on the Isthmus. The presentation was made
at the Leprosarium. The award to Mrs.
Hurwitz reportedly marked the first time
in the history of the Republic that both a
husband and wife have received the Vasco
Nifiiez de Balboa. Dr. Hurwitz, who was
with his wife for this month's presentation,
received the award several years ago.

An employee of the Panama Canal for
21 years, Rubelio D. Quintero, Supervisory
Electrical Engineer, whose picture is shown
in "Gente en la Noticia," is a graduate of
Balboa High School and the University of
Southern California. For 2 years, Ruby was
an instructor in the Panama University
School of Engineering and Architecture.
He recently was named to the committee

Mrs. Porter

named by Governor Fleming to hear
appeals from adverse personnel actions.

An honor graduate of what is now the
Rainbow City High School who has worked
for the Panama Canal since March 1954,
Gladstone B. Gordon this month became
a secretary in the Engineering Division at
Balboa Heights. :He is believed to be the
only male secretary in the Canal organiza-
tion. A saxophone and clarinet player,
Mr. Gordon at present is studying at the
Panama National Conservatory. His wife
works at the Tivoli Guest House and they
recently bought a new home in Villa CAce-
res, Panama housing project being financed
with the aid of the United States.

Representatives of the Canal Zone were among those participating in the Carnival
flag-raising in Panama City early this month. Panama Carnival representatives reciprocated
a few days later by attending the flag-raising on the Pacific side in the Canal Zone. Shown
at the Panama flag-raising, which signaled the start of preparations for the February 23-26
Carnival, were, from left: Enrique Rogers, President of Panama's Permanent Carnival Junta;
Panama City Mayor Mario J. de Obaldia; Rosario de Sedas, 1962 Panama Carnival Queen;
Irene Michaelis, 1962 Carnival Queen in the Canal Zone; and Frank Hirt, Chairman of
the Canal Zone Carnival Committee.


The NS Savannah, the world's first
nuclear-powered merchant ship, which has
been on exhibit at the Seattle World's Fair,
is scheduled to arrive in Balboa from the
west coast January 28 according to informa-
tion received by Panama Agencies, which
represents the States Marine Lines at the
After a 3-day stay in Canal waters, the
Savannah will transit the Canal February 1
on her way to Todd Shipyards in Galveston,
Tex., where she will spend several months
for general inspection and maintenance.
The Savannah made her first and only
transit through the Canal September 18, en
route from Savannah, Ga., to Seattle. An
official party of guests headed by President
Roberto F. Chiari of Panama and members
of his cabinet; Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
and other officials made a partial transit
aboard the vessel. The nuclear ship was
accompanied through the Canal by two
tugs and was the object of considerable
attention from local residents.


The gasoline service station at Paraiso
will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays,
starting January 20, for a trial period of
20 days, instead of the present morning
hours. The change resulted from a request
by the Latin-American Pacific Civic

Don't ditch that unused medicine in
the nearest trash can-flush it down the
drain, then ditch the empty container.
Why? Because children have a habit
of scavenging toys and other things
which attract them in trash cans. They
might get hold of the medicine, with
disastrous consequences.

Por cortesia de la Oficina de Viviendas
del Canal de PanamA, un punto de reco-
lecci6n estA situado en el Edificio 635 en
Balboa. El punto de recolecci6n en el
sector Atlintico estA en el viejo cuartel
de bombers de Margarita. Todos los
articulos donados son separados, inventa-
riados, y luego enviados a un comit6
especial para su distribuci6n.


El confeccionar polleras, montunas, tem-
bleques y otros adornos del traje tipico
national de PanamA, no es ya una prerro-
gativa del panamefio, porque en la Zona
del Canal hay una ciudadana norteameri-
cana, que no solo hace todo esto, sino que
tambidn imparte classes de confecci6n a
otras damas norteamericanas residents en
la Zona del Canal.
La sefiora Violeta S. Deakins, que reside
en Diablo Heights, esposa de Roger L.
Deakins, Jefe de la Estaci6n Diesel de
Cocoli, Divisi6n de Electricidad del Canal
de PanamA, aprendi6 a hacer polleras en
1950 bajo la direcci6n de la sefiora Julia
Leignadier en el Club de Damas de Cris-
t6bal, en donde hace un par de aiios dio
classes de confecci6n de polleras y montunas
a unas 20 damas de la Zona del Canal.
Su primera pollera la hizo en 1954 y
desde entonces ha confeccionado nueve, la
mayor parte de ellas hechas a mano, en
telas de algod6n y de lino.
La sefiora Deakins no vende polleras;
las hace para su familiar, y en varias oca-
siones ha modelado sus polleras en distintos
actos sociales. Una de sus polleras la donara

a la Biblioteca-Museo de la Zona del Canal.
Sus classes de confecci6n las dicta todos
los jueves por la maiiana y duran 2 horas.
Y hay algo digno de mencionar: la sefiora
Deakins es zurda.

El Gobernador Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,

manente del Carnaval, Enrique Rogers y
Coronel Loehr Rigby el mi6rcoles 9 de
enero cuando, en compaiija de las Reinas
Charito e Irene (de Panama y de la Zona
del Canal) izaron en el Circulo Stevens,
de Balboa, la Bandera del Carnaval de
1963, que este afio se celebrarA del 23
al 26 de febrero. La bandera carnesto-
16ndica fue izada en Panama el 5 de enero.

Tambien describe articulos relacionados
con su habilidad. Uno de ellos apareci6
publicado en la revista "December in
Panama," de la Zona Libre de Col6n, en
1957, y su titulo era: "Mi Pollera."

Rodeada de las polleras y montunas que ha confeccionado, y en sus manos la tela de otra
pollera que estA hacienda, aparece la sefiora Violeta S. Deakins, quien con su labor estA
ayudando a estrechar mis los lazos de amistad entire panamefios y residents de la
Zona del Canal.
