SOCIAL LIFE OF THE ZONE.







Women's Clubs.

At the meeting of the Paraiso Woman's
Club on Wednesday, January 25, two standing
committees were created in order to facilitate
the work of the organization; a committee
on civics, with Mrs. W. E. Ellenwood as
chairman, and a committee on entertainment,
with Mrs. H. G. Bain, chairman. The duty
of this latter committee will be to arrange
dates and details for all entertainments given
by the club. It is expected that the club will
hold a dance early in February.

The social meeting of the Pedro Miguel
Woman's Club was held at the home of
Mrs. Ernest Bitely on Wednesday afternoon,
January 25. Mrs. Mark White has issued
invitations for the clubwomen, with their
husbands, to meet at her home in Ancon, on
Saturday evening, February 11. A special
train will bring the guests to Ancon and return.

The Gatun Woman's Club held a social
meeting at the clubhouse on Friday afternoon,
January 27. A feature of the program was a
charade contest, prizes being awarded. Re-
freshments were served. The club has re-
sumed its weekly meetings, and these are well
attended.

The Empire Woman's Club has changed
its meeting day from the second and fourth
Thursdays to the first and third Thursdays in
each month. The next meeting will be held
on Thursday, February 2, at the clubhouse;
each member is entitled to bring one guest.
The meeting will be social, and refreshments
will be served. It is expected that hereafter
the meetings of the club will be held at the
homes of members by invitation. Any mem-
ber can learn the place of meeting from the
clubhouse secretary. Guests are always cor-
diallv welcomed.



Miscellaneous Events.

The Pacific Dancing Club held a dance at
Paraiso hall on Saturday evening, January 28.

The board of governors of the University
Club has decided that the first Saturday night
of each month shall be observed in a special
manner. On the night of February 4, Dr.
John Stuart, an Oxford graduate, professor
of English at the Panama National Institute,
will speak on the "Physiograph of the Isth-
mus." There will also be music and refresh-
ments. The dance planned for the night of
February 21, has been indefinitely postponed.



Church Notes.

The Rt. Rev. Albion W. Knight, Bishop of
Cuba, sailed for Cuba by the way of Jamaica
on Tuesday, January 24, after a visit of 23
days. This is the third visit Bishop Knight
has made to the Panama mission of the
Protestant Episcopal Church, and the number
of persons confirmed by him exceeded that of
any previous visitation.

On Sunday, January 29, two bishops of the
Anglican Church visited Colon, in transit for
Kingston, the Rt. Rev. John Welch, Bishop
of Trinidad, and the Rt. Rev. Edward Hutson,
Bishop of Antigua. They were accompanied
by Canon Tree of Trinidad. The Bishop of
Antigua preached at Christ Church at the
morning service, and the Bishop of Trinidad
in the evening.

Delta Tau Delta.

Members of the Delta Tau Delta college
fraternity, who are on the Isthmus, effected an
organization at a dinner at the Gatun hotel



on Wednesday evening, January 3. The
object is to hold occasional dinners, and to
welcome other members of the society who
may come to the Isthmus. Seven members of
the fraternity from five different schools were
present at the Gatun dinner. Any other mem-
bers on the Isthmus are requested to communi-
cate with C. C. Carr, Gatun.



Gatun Playground Association.

A meeting of the residents of Gatun called by
the Gatun Woman's Club, was held at the
Commission clubhouse on Saturday evening,
January 21, for the purpose of considering the
advisability of establishing a public play-
ground and athletic field in the village. Invi-
tations had been sent to the local fraternal
societies, the Kangaroos, Odd Fellows, and
Knights of Pythias, all of which showed their
interest by sending delegates. There were
present besides, a number of representative
townspeople. Mrs. V. V. Sessions, president
of the woman's club presided, and outlined
the plans as tentatively arranged by the
woman's club, assisted by Mr. C. C. Carr,
principal of the Gatun high school. It was
decided to form an association to be known as
the "Gatun Playground Association," and
officers were elected as follows: President, C.
C. Carr; vice-president, Mrs. E. S. Waid;
secretary, R. M. Sands; treasurer, Mrs. V. V.
Sessions. Four permanent committees were
appointed, with the following chairmen: Fi-
nance, Frank Gardner Smith; grounds, W. C.
Gayer; publicity, J. H. Stevenson; equip-
ment, A. O. Ludwig.

At a second meeting of the association, held
on Friday evening, January 27, it was de-
cided to separate the project into two parts,
as there is not a suitable site to combine the
playground and athletic field within the town
limits, and to direct first efforts toward estab-
lishing the playground. The site selected
is next the schoolhouse. The work of grading
and preparing the ground will be begun at once.
The association will hold a meeting every
Friday evening at the clubhouse.

COCOLI LAKE PUMPING PLANT



Additional Facilities to be Installed to Increase
Pressure in Ancon and Panama.

Additional equipment will be installed at
the Cocoli Lake pumping plant to increase
the water pressure in the 16-inch main which
supplies Ancon and Panama. The situation
will be temporarily relieved by the installa-
tion of a 12-inch pump, formerly in service
at the sump in the Pedro Miguel Locks, but
it will be substituted as soon as possible by a
new 10-inch, 3-stage centrifugal pump of
250-horsepower. with a capacity of 2,000
gallons per minute operating against a 300-
foot head. The present equipment consists
of two 80-horsepower pumps, and these will
either be held in reserve for an emergency, or
used again in the rainy season, in order to
operate the treating plant, as circumstances
may require. The new 10-inch pump, when
installed, will pump the water from the lake
to the 16-inch Rio Grande main direct,
without the use of the present settling tank
arrangement. The chemical solution will be
injected into the 10-inch discharge line and
the water filtered before entering the 16-inch
Rio Grande main, provided the two filters in
the basement of the Miraflores power house
prove satisfactory. Otherwise, they, together
with the chemical solution, will be omitted,
and the water treated and filtered at Ancon
only, instead of being treated and filtered at
