Old Timer Honored

The name of Ralph Z. Kirkpatrick, for
many years Chief Hydrographer and
later Chief of Surveys for the Canal
organization, has been given to a new
2S-foiit m(it()ri)o;it which will l)e used by
the Meteorological and Hydrographic
Branch on Madden Lake. The new boat,
all steel-hull con.struction and built in
Louisiana, arrived here a month ago as
deck cargo and was trucked across the
Isthmus to Madden Lake.

Mr. Kirkpatrick, an outstanding au-
thority on local history, went to work for
the Isthmian Canal Commission in 1910
as a T()pogra])hical Draftsman. He was
made Chief Hydrographer in 1917, and
Chief of Surveys in 1926. He retired in
1939; he died" in Maa'ch 1949, in the
United States.

Canal's Radio-Electronic Unit Deals

With Latest In Scientific Equipment

iCunlinued from pags .i) San Jose, Costa

Rica, and Balboa.

Location Of Shops

The Radio-Electronics unit has its
Balboa headquarters in Pier 17 and the
Cristobal shop is located in the Marine
Electric shop in the Industrial Bureau
area at Mount Hope. The Cristobal shop
is in the charge of Bland L. Smith, who
was recently promoted to Leader Elec-
tronics Mechanic.

The personnel employed in Balboa in-
clude Asa C. Bullock, Jr., a native of the
Canal Zone, and Edward W. Voss, elec-
tronics mechanics; Arley A. Hill and Paul
L. Ellis, radio mechanics; Robert M.
Adams, apprentice radio mechanic; and
four Local-rate helpers, J. De Costa,
David Carter, Darnley Smith, and W. C.

In addition to Mr. Smith, the Cristobal
shop is staffed by John W. Huson, John
H. Foster, and Chester H. Harrold, elec-
tronics mechanics; Ewald A. Wiberg, Jr.,
radio mechanic; and three Local-rate
helpers, H. Buchanan, A. McFarlane,
and C. L. Wharton.

Ladie> wllli a "[K-rlecl M)" of a U^uie ami

tho=e built on other proportions all know

that a dress — from the Coni-

Scientific missary or elsewhere — is only
Sizes For All as flattering as its fit.

Figures Not so well known is the

system of sizes with which
manufacturers strive to fit every figure.

The old standby sizes in the "ready-to-
wear" business are the misses sizes from 10
to 20, long manufactured for an alleged
average lithe .American figure. These are for
women 5 feet 5 inches, to 5 feet 9 inches and
slim to medium in circumference.

The other long-time regulars in the matter
of sizes are woman's sizes from 36 to 44.
These are for women 5 feet 5 inches to 5
feet 9 inches and built on sturdier lines.

For the many figures which don't fit those
averages, the Commissaries ha\e other sizes.

Women's half sizes from 14>^ to 24K
viewed as a godsend to many "non-average
women, created a minor revolution in the
dress industry when they were introduced
several years ago. That was when designers
took their heads out of the sand and started
looking at facts about figures. Half sizes are
for shorter women — 5 feet 5 inches and
under — who are not as slim as their cover-
girl sisters with that supposed ".'Mi-Ameri-
can" figure.

Junior sizes from 9 to 15 are forwomen and
girls from 5 feet 4 inches, to 5 feet 6 inches
with a slim, short waist and small, high
bust — that much discussed "girlish figure."

Strawberries, fresh off the vine, are now
flown from David and sold in the Commis-
saries a matter of hours after
Fresh they are harvested. This is

Chiriqui the first time native straw-
Strawberries berries have been available
regularly in sufficient quan-
tity for regular purchases by the Commis-
sary Division.

Two weekly shipments — one to the
Atlantic and the other to the Pacific side of
the Isthmus — are scheduled so that the
fresh strawberries go on sale at the .-Xncon
and Balboa Commissaries late Thursday

Four-Masted Training Ship Visits Canal

,\ RARE SIGHT in Canal waters was the Spanish Xaval Training ship Juan Sebastian de Elmno
which visited the Canal late last month. The above view shows the four-masted vessel at the pier in
Balboa. The training ship is known as a topsail schooner. During the early Canal days the sight of a
sailing ship was not unusual. Within recent years, however, a visit by one of these is a rare treat for
Canal employees.

afternoons .iiui at the and .Marga-
rita Commissaries late Tuesday afternoons.
The strawberries will continue to be sold
as long as customers show they want them.

Mildew-proof Tropidura white paint can
now be purchased in the Commissaries in
one-pint tins.

Pretty and practical D'Orsay pumps in a
new wide-open toe version, are among the
new ladies shoes in the Commissaries. They
are calf, in white, red or a glossy natural tan
color called "Benedictine." They cost $7.45.

Nylon "car-sac's," latter-day cousin of the
proven and practical canvas "Val-a-Pak,"
are now available in the Commissaries. The
"Car-Sac," to be hung in a car or folded and
used as a bag like the V'al-a-Pak, costs
$12.75— the Val-a-Pak, $22.95.

Beau Monde seasoning will be in the
Commissaries soon, courtesy of one of its
many devotees who requested the Commis-
sary Division to stock it. It does wonderful
things to meats, stews, salads, etc. — let your
taste buds be your guide.

Fashion's current passion for petticoats
now extends to the two-to-eight crowd.
Petticoat and pantie combinations for little
girls, now available in the Commissaries
have embroidered edges for fancy pants

The familiar fungicide Desenex, long
available only at Canal dispensaries, now is
carried in the Commissaries in the form of
ointment or powder.

A new infant cereal with papaya will be
on sale in the Commissaries soon. The name
of the new product to whet babies'
appetites is Cerol.

Men's dacron anklets will be in the stores
again soon and the prices will be more
pleasing. They will be available in blue,
green, tan, and canary — for gay or conserva-
tive tastes.

For the farsighted who are looking for-
ward to November and December holida>s
the Commissaries have electric
roasters to fit all sizes and types
of fowls. W'estinghouse roaster-
ovens cost $,?8.65 and the General
Electric automatic roaster, $38.
Non-electric Club aluminum roasters, 15-
inches long, sell for $7.85 and Wearever
roasters, in six different sizes and shapes,
start at 83.25 which fit a four to five pound
chicken, and go up to the largest 17K-inch
size at $7.50 for a 16- to 20-pound bird.


Southern fried chicken, ready to eat cold
or to heat, can now be bought in the frozen
food sections, precooked and quick frozen.
You can buy either a half or whole chicken.

To tame small witches and hobgoblins
who show up on October 31 , the Commissary
Division will have candy pumpkins and
jack-o-lanterns and witches with lollipops,
candy-filled black cats, and bags of candy
called Trix-or-Treats to deal with potential

Potatoes still a shortage in the United

States while there are lots of

potatoes in the Netherlands.

The first lot of an order of Chilean eggs
will be on sale starting early in October.
Lemons too, at lower prices, now come to the
Commissaries from Chile.

Heinz vegetable salad now comes in cans
ready to open and ser\e. It has peas, carrots,
and potatoes already dunked in mayonnaise.
The commissaries will have both 15-ounce
and 7-ounce cans which will be on sale soon.

Local Diggers Participated

In Rich Archaeological Find

KDiroR'S NOTE: The following
article is the second part of a story en-
titled "Many Canal "Diggers' and
Naturalists Look for .Man-Made, Nat-
ural History," which appeared on page
(> of the September issue of TllE Panama
Canal Remevv. The first part told of
some of the amateur archaeologists and
naturalists in the Canal Zone, several
of them Canal employees, their fields
of special interest, and two local so-
cieties composed of these amateurs.

Local archcologiste, always on the look-
out for potential sites for excavation, have
been instrumental in the opening of two
of the richest Isthmian archeological finds.

Sitio Conte, center of Code Indian cul-
ture near Nata , was excavated as a direct
result of the efforts of Karl P. Curtis.
This area has been desci ibed by Matthew
W. Stirling, leader of .several National
Geographic Society-Smithsonian Institu-
tion archeological expeditions in this part
of the world, as "probably the richest
archeological site ever e.xcavated scientif-
ically in the New World."

Sometime in the 1920's Mr. Curtis
found that beautiful and intricately
v\Tought gold jewelry and ornaments of a
type previously unknown in this part of
the world were being sold from time to
time in certain shops in Panama City.
Recognizing their potential historical as
well as intrinsic value, he investigated.

Finding that the exquisite pieces were
all coming from a certain locality, he
made inquiries there and found that they
were being washed down by the Rio
Grande River. Tracing them back up-
stream, he was convinced he had dis-
covered the site of a rich and unknown
