$1 Million Increase



In Pay Due January 5


New Year's encouragement
-in monetary form- is due to
arrive on January 5 for all non-
manual employees of the Canal
organization. .
About 4,500 persons will find
the extra funds showing up in
their pay checks for the first
full pay period after the ef-
fective date.
More than a year ago, the
United States Congress voted
into law a pay-raise bill known
as the Postal Service and
Federal Employees Salary Act
of 1962.
Shortly thereafter, the first
phase adjustment was granted
administratively on the Canal
Zone. The effective date was
October 14, 1962. The forthcom-
ing second phase adjustment
was also provided for at that
time.
,Categories of Canal emplo-
3 Yees who will receive this pay


raise include clerical, adminis-
trative, fiscal and professional
workers, postal employees and
pilots.
In the overall picture, the
pay raise i;ll average 4 per-
cent. It will range from 2 per-
cent at the bottom non-manual
grade NM-I) to 7 percent in the
upper categories.
Total additional cost to the
Canal organization will be about
$1,000,000 yearly.
Personnel action papers and
notices to the fortunate indiv-
iduals affected are going out
this week.


The previous maximum
salary limitation of $20,000 pet
year continues in effect.
While many f a c t or s were
brought up in Congress during
discussions which led to the
enactment of the law granting
this pay raise, two purposes
have stood out: the wish to
federal compensation into closer
line with that of private em-
ployment in the United States.
and the wish to attract more
qualified and dedicated workers
to the service of the federal
government.


Palanca men Swing Poles, Push



Cayucos Upstream To Get Data


W Now is the time for all good
palancamen to come to the
Central Employment Office.
One of them might get a job
with the Canal Hydrographers.
But before you mention this
to your Cousin Luis, who used
to be a fast man with an oar
in a rowboat on fishing trips,
ask your relative whether he
can pole a cayuco in rapids
and perform a lot of other tasks
in the jungle. And he has to be
better at all of them than a
well-trained Boy Scout (Eagle
Badge) explorer. (See photo in
Spanish Section).
.Two things he does not have
to do are read and write, in
any language,
Though the Canal has
Moved into the electronic
age in several fields, there
are some hand-skills it can-
not do without. And the job
description for a combina-
tion of several of these is
"palancaman," meaning a
man who wields a pole.
Palancamen m u s t be in
-robust physical condition and
able to swim. Besides handling
smallcraft they sometimes act
as seamen on a motor launch,
wade-out to take meter mea-
surements, mix small amounts
of concrete with a hand shovel,
scrape and paint boats and
towers, cut brush, fell trees
and cook for a 10-man field
party.
If a palancaman is ambitious
and learns other skills he can
in time advance in this work
to a maintenanceman, or leader
maintenanceman.


Since 'before the waterway
opened, the Canal has been
hiring such combination woods-
men and river men to pole up
the jungle rivers and tend
water gages. Accurate informa-
tion on rainfall and river stages
has been essential, all along,
to estimate the amount of water
that will come into Gatun Lake.

Santa's Rudolph

Didn't Ride; Made

Herr Acquaintance
Santa made his rounds with
only seven reindeer Christmas
Eve.
One of the usual eight, very
possibly Rudolph, wound up
with a vacation that night
nursing an injured nose, an
injury that could prove very,
very painful only to Rudolph.
No, it wasn't Santa who let
the story out of the bag. It was
V i c t or Her r, instrumental
music instructor at Balboa High
School and Canal Zone College.
It appears that Herr was
driving home on La Boca Road
on the night of December 23
in his small sports car. All of
a sudden a large deer ran out
from a lawn and into the car.
Fortunately for Herr his left
arm was bruised only slightly
and the car suffered no
damage. Herr didn't get a good
look at the deer but he thinks
the collision may have broken
the deer's nose. The frightened
and possibly injured animal
took off for home immediately.


The Canal needs to control the
inflow, so that there will be
enough water to lift ships over
the Continental Divide from
the Atlantic to the Pacific
oceans, but not such- an excess
as to cause flood damage to
valuable machinery.
Since the palancamen's
work was in the jungle, the
C a n a I traditionally hired
men who lived in the jungle
to do it.
For decades,, most palanca-
men were what was known as
"San Juaneros," because they
came, from Ihe small, com--
munity of San Juan near .the
confluence of the Pequeni River
with the Chagres. After the
waters of Madden Lake covered
the townsite, they moved to
nearby areas. But the oncoming
generation moved to town or
learned more mechanized skills,
so that few qualified men have
been applying for this work
which often means being "up
river" and out of touch with
families for days at a time.
A palancamen's expedition is
apt to be like this:
About four men show up in
the early morning at the Mad-
den Dam launching ramp for
smallcraft.
Besides their personal belong-
ings, government-provided food
for outdoor cooking is loaded
into the cayuco they will use,
along with tools, materials,
notebooks and other items they
will need in their work.
A stiff sturdy waterproof
tapa carga (tarpaulin) is put

'KNOWING THEIR TURN WILL COME SOON, Cristobal Toastmasters listen while a fellow meri-
ber expounds his ideas. Left to right are Dr. Melchor Sayoc, Rufus O'Neal, John Surany, Don
*Howerth, Edward B. O'Brien, Jr., Dr. Willard French, and Fred Meisinger.



One Good Idea Leads To Another


Several middle management
men from the :Atlantic side
were among groups brought to
Balboa Heights in the autumn
of 1962 for a series of briefings
on new personnel policies and
ether matters.
In talking it over later, Gold
'Coasters decided they had
learned a lot. But some of them
were impressed with the wide
difference in the skill with
which the briefing speakers
presented ideas.
Turning this thought to-
ward themselves, the Atlan-
tic side men decided they
might be better in their
jobs if they could improve
their own techniques of get-
ting instruction to emplo-
yees.
More-spirited speechmaking,
'too, might make for clearer
action at community meetings,
and more fun at lodge.
.So with E. B. O'Brien, super-
intendent of the Terminals Di-
vision, in the vanguard, the
group turned ,in and formed
the Cristobal Toastmasters'
Club. O'Brien and D. R. Bray-
ton, manager of the Railroad
Division, had both completed
a course in public speaking for
upper-management executives.
With O'Brien as its first pre-
sident, Club No. 2640-U of the
national Toastmasters' organi-
zation .got a charter. It meets
once.a month for dinner.
Members now number 30 and
include shipping agents and
Colon businessmen as well as
individuals from most federal
-agencies on the Gold Coast.
Meetings follow a pattern.
After a stand-around social
hour beforehand, members are
seated. As the meal 'is served
the president, now Samuel T.
Frankel, a Colon attorney, calls
on a half-dozen members to
get up, and talk for five min-
utes on a subject named by the
chair. Members do not know
ahead of time who will be
called on, or what he will be
asked to discuss. Topics are
usually current events.
The set speeches follow.
These have been assigned
in advance. They vary from
three minutes for a new
m-em:mb e r just getting his
"word legs" to a half hour
for an experienced orator.
One evaluator then makes a
critique of the speeches; then
another evaluator m ak es a
quick survey of the meeting in
general. These monitors are
expected to give both pats on
the back and ideas for im-
provement.
Incidentally, the Toastmas-
ters concern themselves little
with the validity of the facts
and ideas brought forth. The
emphasis is on organization and
presentation. But some men
say this also helps them to
think more clearly.
Meetings :start at 7 pm.
and at 9 p.m. the gavel
-bangs down' and the meet-
ing breaks up, no matter
how wound up some spea-
ker may be.
Membership now includes:

Terminals Division, William R.

The Fantasticks


In Rehearsal


At CZ College
January 14 through January
18 will be the production dates
of the next Canal Zone Col-
lege theatrical production, The
Fantasticks, a surprisingly dif-
ferent musical play.
The staging is as unusual as
the play itself. The play will
be presented in the "three-
quarter round" on a bare plat-
form at one end of the new Col-
lege auditorium. The cast of
seven will have as a set a large
faded drape, one bench, one
step ladder, one property ix
and a cardboard moon.
The plot deals with two
fathers (Don Wilcox and Gay-
lord 'Mowrey) who .arrange a
marriage between their offs-
pring while pretending to 'op-
pose it. Carol Kimsey and Norm
Caa r p e n te r play the young
lovers. Ron Lewis plays the
dashing but cynical bandit El
Gallo. Mike Kocher is an
eighty-year old Shakespearean.
Robert Singleton is an Indian
who speaks a cockney dialect,
while Billy Williams plays a
mute who is on stage through-
out but never utters a -word.
Vera Bomford is arranging
the dance sequences. The
chamber orchestra includes the
piano duo Claudio and Sue
Vasquez, Miss Sybil Markun on
the harp, and Victor Herr on
tympany.
Don Musselman is handling
the'pr9duction and Victor Herr
is in charge of musical direc-
tion.

President's Views

On Civil Service
The observance of the letter
and spirit of the civil service law
is the first requisite in obtaining
clean, decent, efficient Govern-
ment service in any branch or
bureau of Government.
-Theodore Roosevelt.

I am a hearty believer in the
principles of civil service reform
and shall take pleasure at all
time in doing what I can to pro-
mote those principles in practice.
-Woodrow Wilson
The best method for selecting
public servants is the merit sys-
tem.
-Calvin Coolidge
The people are entitled to the
most efficient public service we
can devise. The way to provide
such service is to make sure
that all Government employees,
except those in top policy jobs,
are under the merit system.
--Harry S. Truman
Any free government certainly
needs a vast corps of well- train-
ed, dedicated, intelligent, long-
service people who can take care
of all the intricate jobs of operat-
ing the many activities that gov-
ernments these days are com-.
pelled to carry on.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

Three Marks Broken


In Last Swim Meet


Balboa High School closed
out the regular swimming sea-
* son last week with a resound-
ing victory. The Bulldogs, who
had won the title after the third
meet of the year, tallied 84
points to six for Cristobal High
School. Canal Zone College had
five points.
In the girls competition, Bal-
boa won 61 to 33 over CHS. The
girls had also won their title

New Parking Rules

At CZ College
New parking restrictions will
go into effect when classes re-
sume at Canal Zone College
Thursday, January 2.
Instead of students and
teachers driving down Trinidad
Street (by La Boca gas station)
and into the small parking lot
and turn at Perlas Street by
area, they will be forced to
make some changes.
Under the new regulations
motorists will have to continue
to the end, of La Boca Road
and turn at Perlas Srteet by
the Printing Plant, They must
continue past the new dormito-
ry to, the large parking lot.
When that area is filled they
will park in the small parking
area. It will be one-way in
this direction.
* In addition, parking in Estiva
and Bona Places, right across
from the college, will be
restricted to residents only. No
students will be allowed to
park there.
Signs will be posted at the
La Boca Road Perlas Street
turnoff.


after the third meet.
Three records were set in the
final meet. In the 200 yard
freestyle relay for boys, Bal-
boa broke the old record of
2:00.7 with a clocking of 2:00.3.
Members of the winning team
were Bentley Jenkins, Roark
Summerford, Ed Miranda, and
Sammy Witkin.
Judy Redmond of Cristobal
broke the short course indiv-
idual medley record of 2:58.2
with a- fantastic clocking of
2:49.0. In the same event
Christie Jenner, who took se-
cond place, also broke the old
mark.
Ed Miranda, a newcomer to
the Zone, broke the short course
record in the individual medley
with a time of 2:33.1. The old
record was 2:35.2. Two weeks
ago he broke the long course
record for the same event at
Coco Solo.
The Bulldogs placed one-two-
three in nine out of 21 events.
The girls won two of the nine
while the boys took seven,
including the diving competi-
tion.
FEVER TV TOPIC
Dr. Albert Hibbs, host of "Ex-
ploring" (an NBC color telecast),
recently presented medicine as
his program subject on the hour
long show. He offered a biogra-
phy of Dr. Walter Reed, who dis-
covered that a certain type of
mosquito was the carrier of yel-
low fever, and that its bite could
cause the disease in man. Dr.
Hibbs outlined Dr. Reed's research
and the important part it ulti-
mately played in America's suc-
cess in building the Panama Can-
al.


BALBOA HIGH SCHOOL'S female swimmers, interscholastic champions for 1963, pose proudly
after wrapping up the title during the third meet of the year, held at Coco Solo two weeks ago.
The team had a scheduled practice every afternoon, but many swimmers got in extra workouts
before school.

under a tree along the bank if
the downpour is heavy.
When the job is done, the
palanca party makes its way
downstream in the same way.
It b rin gs the hydrographic
reading it has made. And while
at the meteorological station, it
has probably done some re-
pairs.
At the appointed place, at
an hour no more definite
than "midday," the launch
meets the palancamen, who
quite often have also caught
a good string of fish or
captured a turtle.
Soon the launch and the ca-
yuco are back at Madden
ramp, and the palanca; party
disbands. They didn't see any
movies during the two or three
days up river. But even so,
they have not lacked entirely
for entertainment. These days
there is usually a transistor
radio or two tucked away under
the tapa carga.


ON UPPER MADDEN LAKE at the mouth of the Rio Boqueron
two former palancamen and. an Indian friend, center, adjust ca-
yucos which are almost ready to start the launch tow headed for
home. Eugenio Ruiz, at stern, and Anselmo Mena, side to camera,
still pole and perform other palancamen's duties, but they have
moved up,to the rating of maintenanceman and leader maintenan-
ceman respectively


INTERSCHOLASTIC CHAMPIONS in the mens' competition, Balboa's swimming Bulldogs were
coached by Don Connor. The boys also wrapped up their title during the third meet, but by even
more impressive scores than the girls. Both grou ps dominated the diving competition.


Film Of Canal Wins Approval Of Iowa Pupils


"At first I didn't think I
would like your film, but as it
went on I liked it more and
more. It made me realize what
a great help the canal is for
ships from all over the world.
I know many people are grate-
ful for this canal and for the
beautiful scenery they can see

Bonks You Miqht

Have Missed'-
A fascinating novel of 19th
century England and of a beau-
tiful, unscrupulous and self-
centered woman is titled The
Eustace Diamonds.
This story is distinguished for
its delightful but subtle satire,
fine characterizations, and for
a complicated and very exciting
plot. Although it is thoroughly
modern in tone and concept, it
is a true-historical novel in
every sense of the word.
It was first published 90 years
ago and its author was one of
England's most distinguished
19th Century novelists Antho-
ny Trollope.
The Canal Zone Library is
well stocked with Trollope's
books among them Barches-
ter Towers, The Duke's Children
and The Small Horse at Ailing-
ton. If readers are not as yet
Trollopian fans, The Eustace
Diamonds may convince them.


while going through it. If I ever
have a chance to go through
the canal, it will be a privilege
for me."
This is one of the many com-
ments from a group of ninth
graders in New Hartford Con-
solidated School, New Hartford,
Iowa, after they had viewed the
documentary film, "The Pan-
ama Canal" in a ninth grade
English class.,
Forty-one students and their
teacher, Mrs. Mary C o n 1 e y,
wrote letters to the Canal ex-
pressing their opinions about the
film.
All the students were enthu-
siastic about the movie. The
best aspect of the film to most
of the students was its educa-
tional value.
Many students voiced wonder
at the amount of money it
saves shipping and the amount


of work involved in building
the Canal and keeping, it run-
ning.
One boy had seen a film
dealing with the Panama Ca-
nal before, but he preferred
this film because it "showed
the Canal in better detail." Sev-
eral students specifically enjoy-
ed the scenery and are looking
forward to seeing more films
about the Canal.
Another young lad showed
that he obviously enjoys movies
more than classroom work
when he said, "I learned a lot
more from this movie than I
did in eight years of school."

PEOPLE IN THE SPOTLIGHT'

WITH THE TWO MEMBERS of the Police Division in focus today, People in the Spotlight con-
eludes its three-week series covering the three sections of the force assigned to Canal Zone law
enforcement. The first pictures were of men detailed to the Detective Section; the second of of-
ficers serving in uniform for the general protection of life and property. The third shots, publish-
ed below, are of men assigned to traffic work.


TRAFFIC OFFICER Ronald C.
Molinaro has just halted an
oncoming car to let the 4:15
traffic coming down from "The
Hill" disperse in three direc-
tions. For about 10 minutes a
day this is one of the heaviest
traffic spots on the Zone, for
the officer in the middle must
also watch to feed some of the
downhill traffic properly into
the V-shaped intersection where
Roosevelt Avenue meets Gor-
gona Road near'the banyan
trees. Molinaro got his high
school diploma in Boston, was
an Army M.P. here for a time
and also served as lifeguard at
Ft. Amador before he became
a Canal civilian a year ago.
He married Joan Barrett, a
Balboa girl who works for the
Army. They live in Gavilan
Area.


Brow ing

The Girls of Slender Means
is a novel by Muriel Spark, a
British writer of many talents.
In this latest novel she has
recreated a boarding house for
women in the London of 1945
inhabited by "the girls of
slender means" young and
older women who worked in
London during the war years.
By skillfully counterpointing
the present with the past she
has dra w n unforgettable
characters and has c r e a t e d
both suspense and entertain-
ment. The final tragedy of the
story is not tragic in a drama-
tic sense but is combined with
wit, control, and economy in
writing.. These "girls" are in-
teresting both as they appear
today and as they are seen in
flashbacks. Miss Spa rk has
written seven earlier novels,
the best known probably is The
Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.
The First Day of Friday by
Honor Tracy is a very funny
book about the oddities of Irish
behavior from the standpoint
of a young land owner who is
trying to break even in manag-
ing his properties. Miss Tracy
is the author of The Straight
and Narrow and is distinguish-
ed for her satirical humor.
Naked Came I, is a novel
about Auguste Rodin by David
Weiss. This book presents Ro-
din, not only as one of the
world's foremost sculptors, but
as a man of tremendous energy
and warm enthusiasm. His
famous friends whom Weiss
presents with equal vividness
and skill include Monet, Renoir,
Victor Hugo and George Ber-
nard Shaw. This is a wonderful
book about one of the great
artists of the 19th and early
2)th ceantria8,


Collection

The New Moon with the Old
is a novel by Dodie Smith
Smith which tells what happens
to the teenage children of an
affluent business man when his
financial collapse threw all four
on their own for the first time
in their lives. Adventures of
each teenager forms a separate
section of the novel. Miss Smith
is the author of a well-known
earlier book, I Captured the
Castle.
Which Way to The Melting
Pot? by Mircea Vasiliu is an
engaging continuation of the
story begun in The Pleasure is
Mine. The former Romanian
diplomat's shift from Hom-
burgs to hamburgers, his hap-
py marriage, and his success
as a leading illustrator make
an altogether enjoyable book.
To The Embassy by Joseph
Verner Reed, is an amusing
account of the volunteer di-
plomat's experiences while
serving at the American Em-
bassy in Paris for two years.
Light in style, this humorous
account of diplomatic life pro-
vides entertaining reading, and
is certain to delight anyone who
is familiar with Paris.
The Turret, a light fantasy by
Margery Sharp, is a third in a
series about the memorable
mice of The Rescuers and Miss
Bianca. Charmingly illustrated
by Garth Williams, this gay
and humorous story offers
delightful entertainment for
both young and old readers.
Vietnam Diary by Richard
Tregaskis, author of Guadalca-
nal Diary, is a similar eye-
witness account of modern gue-
rilla warfare in the paddies and
jungles of Vietnam. The author
describes the use of new tech-
niques and weapons; special


POLICE TRY TO KEEP TRAF-
FIC flowing at a safe, sane
pace, but when a smashup oc-
curs they're the first people on
the scene to help the injured
and try to find out what hap-
pened. "It was this way," re-
ports Policeman Rolando E.
Winberg, who is using the
police traffic board and minia-
ture cars to explain who did
what, and hit the other fellow.
The board helps sort facts from
conflicting testimony. Winberg
grew up on the Zone and gra-
duated from Balboa High School
before Army service took him
to Korea and Japan. A bachelor,
he studies a lot and took some
courses at Canal Zone college
before joining the force about
a year ago. His parents live in
Gamboa where his father, Glen
W. Winberg, is Chief Engineer
of Tugboats.


New Paving Due

On PanAm Road
Paving of one of the last
stretches of the Interamerican
Highway got under way re-
cently when the firm of Oman-
Farnsworth-Wright started work
on the 56-kilometer section bet-
ween Santiago and El Pajal in
Veraguas Province.
Judging by past performance
of the contractor, the local
press says, the project is ex-
pected to be completed by the
time the next rainy season
starts.
Operations centering around
Santiago have given that town
a frontier days appearance, it
is reported, with machinery,
road builders and workmen
moving about feverishly in
their daily routines.
Sources close to the Pan-
amanian Road Administration
indicate that bids will be open-
ed Jan. 29 on the $12 million
project between El Pajal and
Guabala, the final 46-kilometer
stretch of the Interamerican
link on the Isthmus.


training of troops to resist Com-
munism; the junk fleet patroll-
ing the seacoast; and many
other subjects which should be
of interest to everyone.
The Long Shadowed Forest
by Helen Hoover is a rare and
lovely book based on the Hoo-
vers' close observations of the
wild life, forest, lake and
streams at their rustic cabin
in the deep woods of Minneso-
ta. The author's realistic ap-
proach to nature and Adrian
Hoover's pen and ink sketches
make reading this book a re-
warding experience .....


PHILIP N. SMITH


New- Attrney's

Wife Grew Up

On Isthmus

Philip N. Smith, the newest
member of the legal staff of
the Panama Canal's Office of
the General Counsel, is married
to a Canal Zone girl, but visit-
ed the Isthmus only once be-
fore he came here to work.
His wife is the former Jean
Janko, who was born in Pan-
ama and lived many years in
Gatun. She is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Janko
now of Balboa, Janko is an em-
ployee of the Locks Division.
A native of Parkersburg,
West Virginia, attorney Smith
attended Washington and Jef-
ferson College in Washington,
Pa. He obtained his bachelor
of arts degree in 1954 and then
spent the following five years
in the U.S. Army.
Upon completion of his tour
of duty with the Army, Smith
returned to school and studied
law at the University of Miami
Law School. He got his LLD in
1962 and up to the time he
came to the Canal Zone, had
a private law practice in West
Palm Beach.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith were
married in Texas when he was
stationed at Fort Bliss. They
have four children.

$1 MILLION ANUALES PARA


AUMENTO DE SALARIES


Los empleados no manuals
del Canal de Panama, recibi-
ran grata sorpresa monetaria
al entrar el nuevo afio. Unos
4.500 funcionarios recibirin pa-
go extra en stis emolumentos
S en el primer pagamento que
cubra el period.
Hace mAs de un aio, el Con-
greso de Estados Unidos apro-
b6 una ley de aumento conoci-
da como Postal Service and
Federal Employees Salary Act
de 1962. Poco despu6s la pri-
mera fase del ajuste fue acor-
S dada administrativamente en
la Zona del Canal. La fecha en
S que entr6 a regir fue el 14 de
octubre de 1962. La segunda
fase que se aproxima tambi6n
fue acordada en esa.6poca.
Las categories beneficiadas
por la media incluyen ofici-
nistas, administraci6n. fisca-
les, profesionales, postales y
practices.


En t6rminos generals el au-
mento monta a un 4 por cien-
to, fluctuando de 2 por ciento
la escala inferior (NM-1) a 7
por ciento en categories mAs
altas.
El incremento de salaries
costara a la organizaci6n co-
mo $1.000.000 anualmente."
Las notificaciones a las per-
sonas beneficiadas con la medi-
da serAn despachadas en el cur-
so de la semana.
La limitaci6n a $20.000 como
salario mAximo continta en
efectj.
El aumento parece haberse
inspirado en dos prop6sitos pri-
mordiales: el de colocar a los
empleados federales en un ni-
vel de salario mAs cercano al
de enmpresas privadas en los
Estados Unidos y de atraer al
servicio public a personas me-
jor preparadas y calificadas.

ragOense en estos dias.
El anuncio de esas obras ha
hecho renacer la confianza en
que pronto se podr transitar
desde Panami hasta la fronte-

sa sobre carretera totalmente
pavimentada de concrete.
Esta impresi6n ha ganado
terreno con el anuncio de que
dentro de breve se abrir a
licitaci6n en la Republica el
ultimo eslab6n de esa gran ca-
rretera, que es el que conduce
del Pajal a Guabal, obra que
montarS a unos 12 millones de
dolares.


Uno .de los ultimos tramos
de la carretera Interamerica-
na que faltan por pavimentar
se espera que estara listo an-
tes de entrar la nueva esta-

baole fue otorgado a la firma
norte-americana Oman Farns-
worth Wright, que ya en oca-
siones anterlores ha construido
palmos de esa via en forma
satisfactoria y rapida.
El tramo de que se trata
ahora es el que media entire
Santiago de Veraguas y el
Pajal, que cubre una distancia
de 56 kil6metros. La labor

Por varias d6cadas, la mayo-

debido a que procedian de la

TRA TAMIENTO VIA'


RADIOAFICIONADO


'La buena voluntad de un radio-
aficionado posiblemente salv6 la
vista a una dama norte-america-
ita, pasajera abordo de un car-
guero holand4s en viaje de cir-
cunvalaci6n al globo, cuando le
faltaban 3 dias para Ilegar a Cris-
t6bal procedente de Nueva Or-
leans.
La llamada de emergencia, di-
rigida a la Zona del Canal, fue
captada en Galesburg, Ilinois por
el Dr. Edwin A. Crowell, quien
descubri6 que 61 podia recibir
ambas sefiales '-la de abordo y
la del Istmo- y se ofreci6 para
actuar como mediador y re-trans-
misor de mensajes.
El medico de abordo no se sen-
tia inclinado a tratar a la pacien-
te, quien se quejaba de agudo
dolor, en el nervio 6ptico. El Dr.


JOHN A. COOPER reemplaza
Interinamente a David J. Markun
quedando al frente de la Oficina
de Asesoramiento Juridico mien-
tras dure la ausencia del titular,
del 23 de diciembre al 3 de ene-
ro.




SI ES ORO,


CUIDESE!
No todo lo que brilla es
oro, pero... si lo fuere, p6le
el ojo que a lo mejor se me-
te en lios con la Aduana al
liegar a Estados Unidos.
En efecto, all prevalecen
ciertas normas reglamentarias
relacionadas con la introduc-
ci6n de monedas de oro, ya
fueren parte de una coleccl6n
o de adorno o prenda.
Conforme a carta recibida
en la aduana de la, Zona, se
dice que quienes Ilevasen oro
en tal forma deben obtener
un permiso de importaci6n,
que expide la Oficina Dom6s-
tica de Operaciones de Plate
y Ore, Departamento del Te-
sore, Washington, D. C. SI no
tuviesen tal licencia corren
-o riesgo de que la aduana
norte-americana le confisque
Is prenda.


Crowell telefone6 al Dr. Robert
Cannon, quien estaba en su ba-
fiera al recibir la llamada y cho-
rreando agua acept6 la inusitada
consult radiof6nica, que presen-
taba otra complicaci6n adicional
debido a que el m6dico holand6s
no entendia el idioma ingles y te-
nia que esperar traducciones.
La prescripci6n medical se rea-
liz6 a una distancia de 3.000 mi-
Ilas. El Dr. Cannon recomend6
que la paciente consultase al Dr.
Benjamin F. Boyd, famoso ofta-
m6logo panamefio a quien el Hos-
pital Gorgas consult frecuente-
mente. (Hizo su internado alli.)
El Dr. Benjamin Boyd examine
a la paciente y aprob6 el trata-
miento prescrito por el Dr. Can-
non. La paciente continda su via-
je sin mayores contratiempos.

tor de Salubridad llama aten-
ci6n hacia la conveniencia de

presa comunal. Toda la sangre re-
querida por los pacientes es da-
da gratis, gracias a que fue gra-
tuitamente donada por personal
civil y military domiciliado en la
Zona del Canal.
Esos dos bancos. figuran entire
los 50 acreditados ante la Asocia-
ci6n Americana-de Bancos de San-
gre, lo que denota que mantienen
o superan cualidades y procedi-
mientos o grades especificamente
fijados. /
En la Zona del Canal no solo
se ahdrra el cost de la sangre
sino que el procesamiento de la
misma es costeado a su vez por
los hospitals. Un resultado de
ello 'es que las ratas de seguro
son inferiores a lo que serian
si se cobrase.
Si estima que si cada persona
donase una pinta de sangre una
sola vez al afio la existencia bas-
taria para las necesidades de 10
afios. 0 para decirlo en otra for-
ma si cada persona estuviese lis-
ta a donar su sangre cuando se

tativamente) solo le tocaria dar-
la una vez cada 10 afios.

Cuando la lancha no puede se-

ria conforme al nivel del lago),
los palanqueros se pasan al ca-
yuco y comienzan a remar rio
arriba.
El capitAn de la lancha les di-

Dice Lao uno

El primer retador a la

manifestado que su plei-
to contra el campe6n
mundial Ultiminio Ramos i
sera el mAs facil de su ca-
rrera pugilistica.
Laguna, que ha visto
pelear en varlas ocasiones
a Ramos, dice que no
tendra dificultades para
vencerlo y arrebatarle el
titulo mundial.
Ismael se enfrentarS
el 19 de enero en la Are-
na Col6n al peso pluma
argentino Pedro Miranda
en un combat sefialado
a diez asaltos y con peso

SY... i QUE DICE LAGUNA DE ESTO?


Las posibilidades de que
en Panama se celebre siem-
pre una pelea de campeona-
nato mundial aumentaron el
sAbado por la noche, cuan-
do el promoter de boxeo pa-
nameio H6ctor Vald6s Jr.,
obtuvo la promesa del cam-
pe6n mundial del peso plu-
ma Ultiminio "Sugar" Ra-
mos de defender su titulo
frente a Ismael Laguna en
el Estadio Olimpico de Pa-
nama.
Vald6s, quien viaj6 a Me-
xico el jueves de la semana
pasada, regres6 al Istmo el
domingo por la noche e in-
form6 que tanto Ramos co-
mo su representante Cuco
Conde habian aceptado las
condiciones de Vald6s, las
cuales son de pagarle
$40,000 libres de impuesto
para que exponga aqui su
corona.
Pero tanto Ramos como
Conde manifestaron a Val-
d6s que preferirian que el
combat se celebrase en
M6xico y que si para fines
del mes de enero no hay
ningifn promoter mexicano
que present una oferta si-
milar a la de Vald6s, enton-
ces pelearian en Panami.
En ese caso el contrato se-
ria firmado apenas pase la
pelea que Ramos celebrara


M el primero de marzo en To-
.Bkio, cuando defenderA su ti-
TAM ..tulo frente al japon~s Mit-
sunori Seki.

":', ciaci6n Mundial de Boxeo

"para garantizar la impar-
cialidad del fallo, en case
