Law Day proclamation, designating Friday, May 1, for Law Day observance,
is signed by Canal Zone Governor Robert J. Fleming, Jr. At right is Roy
Phillips P. of Panama City, a member of the Canal Zone Bar and president
of the Canal Zone Bar Association. Rowland Hazard, U.S. Attorney for the
Canal Zone, is at left. The Law Day proclamation will be read at a Law
Day special session in the U.S. District Court, Ancon, and at a special
session of the Magistrate Court, Cristobal, at 9 a.m. May 1. Text of the
proclamation appears below:

Heritage: Liberty Under Law

WHEREAS in 1961 the Congress of the United States by Joint Resolu-
tion designated the first of May of each year as LAW DAY U.S.A., and
its observance has come to constitute a significant answer to the May Day
demonstration of international Communism;
WHEREAS the day has been officially proclaimed by the President of
the United States as a time for reflecting upon our cherished heritage of
individual liberty under law and for recommitting ourselves, as beneficiaries
of that heritage, to adhere to, honor, and respect the law;
WHEREAS such an event offers timely evidence of the determination
of the American people to uphold freedom and justice and all the institu-
tions which make them possible, and further demonstrates to the world
our faith in the supremacy of law as contrasted with the denial of human
rights in those countries where the same date is the occasion for
demonstrations of armed might; and
WHEREAS it is especially appropriate that notice be taken in the Canal
Zone of the system of jurisprudence under which we live and by which
our personal rights and civic obligations are established;
* NOW, THEREFORE, I, ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr., Governor of the
Canal Zone, do hereby proclaim Friday, May 1, 1964, as LAW DAY through-
out the Canal Zone and call upon the entire community of residents and
workers to give recognition and support to its observance in this jurisdiction.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the
Seal of the Canal Zone to be affixed at Balboa Heights this twenty-seventh
day of April in the year nineteen hundred and sixty-four.
(Signed) ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr.
By the Governor:
PAUL M. RUNNESTRAND,
Executive Secretary.

En route to the finish line, Explorer Scouts are shown as they arrived at Miraflores Locks in the 1964 ocean-to-
ocean cayuco race last weekend. Boat No. 1 of Post 21, sponsored by the Balboa Union Church, won this year's
cayuco race in the time of 7 hours, 46 minutes, and 57 seconds. The race is part of the Explorer program of the
Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts of America.


Postal Savings

Funds Withdrawal

Change Announced

Funds must be on deposit in the
Canal Zone Postal Savings for 3
months or longer before they can be
withdrawn by a check valid for other
than local payment, it has been
announced by the Director of Posts.
The new regulation, which will
become effective May 15, is outlined
in a revised money order and postal
savings procedure manual.
The revised instructions to post-
masters read as follows: "When funds
have been on deposit 3 months or
longer and the depositor making a
withdrawal from his postal savings
account desires a check in lieu of
cash, request will be made to the
Director of Posts.
"As an exception to the above, a
check valid only for local payment
may be furnished a depositor at his
request, when funds have not been
on deposit 3 months or longer and
a sizeable amount of money is
involved, $2,000 or more. On these
requests, the postmaster will enter
'Check for local payment only'."
The instructions also state that
postal savings certificates will be
paid to the depositor only at the office
of issue on proper identification and
payment may be made by cash,
money order or check.


Panama Canal Officials To Attend


Management Seminar in New York


Capt. E. B. Rainier, Port Captain,
Cristobal, B. I. Everson, Director of
the Civil Affairs Bureau, and R. K.
Erbe, Assistant Director of the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau, will travel to New York this
week to attend a 2-week seminar on
"Skills and Goals of Management."
The course will be given at the
Executive Seminar Center at Kings
Point, N.Y., by the Civil Service
Commission.
This seminar program, a significant
new concept in Federal executive
development, made its bow on the
inter-agency training scene with the
establishment of the Executive
Seminar Center at Kings Point in
1963. The first group of 35 careerists
began a 2-week course when the
center opened on the campus of the
U.S. Merchant Marine Academy on
October 7, 1963. By year's end the
center had four seminar sessions to
its credit and had convinced more
than 130 participants, several score
lecturers and discussion leaders, a
select inter-agency advisory com-
mittee of personnel directors, and the
Civil Service Commission of its value
as a development device for career
executives.
Captain Rainier left the Isthmus

630 Floor Tiling

Jobs Listed on

Quarters Project

Modernization of existing Canal
Zone quarters, known as the Livabil-
ity Program, for fiscal year 1964
covers floor tiling in U.S. and Latin
American quarters. Cost is estimated
at approximately $150,000.
Some 630 quarters are scheduled
for installation of tile in fiscal year
1964 and the contract for the work
has been awarded to H. I. Homa. The
program is scheduled to get under
way on both sides of the Isthmus
upon the arrival of materials,
expected early in May.
The Livability Program for fiscal
year 1963 covered the installation of
jalousies in U.S. and Latin American
housing, and that contract has been
completed.
The Livability Program for mod-
ernization of existing Canal Zone
quarters is a continuous program
authorized by the Panama Canal
Board of Directors in fiscal year 1958
to increase the livability of perma-
nent type quarters. Briefly, the pro-
gram is designed to bring less attrac-
tive permanent living units up to a

Periodicals Carry


Articles on Canal
The Panama Canal provided fea-
ture material for at least two States
publications in March. One article
dealt with the Canal's achievements
during 50 years of existence, and
the other highlighted the fluorescent
lighting flanking the "Big Ditch."
Illuminating Engineering, a New
York magazine, reviews the plans and
installation of the fluorescent flood-
lighting along the Canal's banks. The
layout is complete with day and night
pictures of the light fixtures.
The importance of the Canal and
its immediate future were the
primary themes of the article in
Seafarers Log, a weekly publication.
In addition to a discussion of the
Canal's past, present, and future, two
pictures of construction work were
included. One showed Culebra Cut
shortly before the Canal opened. The
other was of Miraflores Locks under
construction in 1912.



Incentive Awards

Benefits Total

Near $548 Million

Since it began November 30, 1954,
the Government-wide incentive
awards program has proved a rich
source for economies and greater
efficiency in the Federal Govern-
ment. In less than 9 years, more
than 818,000 employee suggestions
have been adopted, totaling nearly
8584 million in measurable benefits
to the Government.
During the same time, almost
500,000 employees received superior
work performance awards that
amounted to nearly $460 million in
benefits to the taxpayer. Some
1,318,000 employees' suggestions and
special achievements on the job
from November 1954 through June
1963 brought well over a billion
dollars in measurable benefits for the
Government.
Last year alone the program
showed savings worth $100 million
through adopted work suggestions
and superior job performance of
nearly 190,000 Federal workers.

What Every Foreman


Should Know

1. What the safety policy is, and what it specifies as to his respon-
sibility and authority.

2. What his total responsibilities are, and how he is expected to
integrate safety with them; which areas, operations,
machines, personnel he directs; what is to be done about
maintenance and repairs, working conditions, provisions of
guards and protective devices.

3. What he is to do about determining qualifications in his area;
what disciplinary action is permitted, and under what
circumstances.

4. Who is to instruct and train workers in safety, first aid, and
fire prevention and protection.

5. What the safe work methods are for each job, and where
information about them is obtainable.

6. What safety devices and personal protective equipment are
to be used on each job, and procedures for making them
available.

7. What his relationship is to be with the safety committee.

8. What commitments he may make to correct unsafe conditions
and the cost limit below which he does not need additional
authority.

9. What to do in case of accident: first aid, calling doctor,
ambulance, hospital-notifying relatives of injured person.

10. What reports are required-inspection, accident, accident
investigation, corrective actions taken.

New Book for Both


Armchair Sailors,


Salty Seafarers

As fascinating to the armchair
sailor as to the saltiest seafarer is
The Lore of Ships, now available at
the Canal Zone Library.

It is a beautiful and distinguished
book which has resulted from he
international cooperation of maritime
specialists in the United States,
Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Great
Britain, Holland, Norway, and
Germany.

The volume contains descriptions


Women Hold Third

Of White Collar Jobs
Women held nearly 32 percent
of all Federal white collar jobs in
October 1962, a Civil Service
Commission study shows. This is
an increase of 4 percent over the
previous year.
The study also showed that
women occupied almost 18 per-
cent of professional positions in
Government and 34 percent of
nonprofessional jobs.



More Liberal


Moving Costs


Rules Proposed

Civil Service Commission has sent
Congress a legislative proposal that
would authorize Federal agencies to
pay more of the moving costs of
employees who are relocated for the
convenience of the Government.
The proposal seeks to amend the
Administrative Expenses Act of 1946
under which moving expenses of
many non-Foreign Service employees
have been paid for the past 18 years.
Weight Revision
The bill would authorize agencies
to increase the weight limit of trans-
ported household goods to 11,000
pounds, up some 60 percent from the
present 7,000-pound limit. It would
also liberalize travel expenses of the
employee's immediate family. Under
current law, the Government does
not pay food and lodging costs of
the employee's family en route to
the new duty post.
Another provision would allow
agencies to pay subsistence expenses
of the employee and his immediate
family for up to 30 days while they
occupy temporary lodging, such as a
motel. Government does not now re-
imburse an employee for the extra
living expenses incurred between his
arrival at the duty post and the time
of moving into permanent quarters.
Storage Provision
Still another feature authorizes re-
imbursement for storage of house-
hold goods up to 3 years of em-
ployees who move to isolated duty
stations within the United States
(excluding Alaska and Hawaii)
where there is no residential housing.
Out-of-pocket costs incurred by an
employee in mnovinn in the Govern-
men t interest has averaged about
$560. Some 35,000 employees are
relocated each year.

College Grounds
Beautification

Project Launched
"Project Grounds Beautification" is
under way at the Canal Zone College,
with the completion of construction
work and the apparent beginning of
the rains. The public is invited to
assist the college in beautification of
the grounds. Cuttings and plants will
be received, and planted, with
*appreciation.
At this time of year quite a bit of
pruning is done, and an equal amount
of rearranging of gardens is in
process.
The Canal Zone College dean,
Dr. Charles L. Latimer, says the col-
lege will be happy to receive cuttings
and prunings for planting in the
college grounds.

Cruise Would Help

Raise Hospital Funds
The secretary-treasurer of a
laundry-cleaners has offered to pay
the expenses of taking the former
presidential yacht, the Potomac,
from California to Memphis for a
riverfront restaurant to raise money
for St. Jude Hospital. The yacht was
recently donated to the California
St. Jude Foundation by entertainer
Elvis Presley.
An official of the laundry-cleaners
firm proposes an all-expense-paid
cruise from California down the west
coast of Mexico, through the Panama
Canal, up the east coast of Mexico,
*and through the Port of New Orleans
and up the Mississippi to Memphis.
The charge for the Potomac cruise,
which could accommodate 70 per-
sons, would be a $200 donation to
St. Jude.
Should the idea be approved, it is
hoped that Presley and fellow
entertainer Danny Thomas, founder
of the hospital, also would make
the trip.


The Canal Zone is losing its only
lady ambulance driver.
Mrs. Eva Smith, who has presided
over the Gorgas Hospital admitting
office for the past 8 years, is leaving
the Isthmus in May with her
husband, John Palmer Smith, Jr.,
who is retiring as Assistant to the
Health Director.
The affable Mrs. Smith probably
is better known to her friends, cus-
tomers and coworkers as the efficient
supervisor of 6 admitting clerks, 13
ambulance drivers, and 4 messengers.
But on occasion she has been known
to drive an ambulance with a hand
as steady as any of the male experts.
Being an only woman in a male
profession comes naturally to Mrs.
Smith. During the last war, she was
the Canal Zone's first lady customs
inspector. That solo job did not last
long, however, because a whole bevy
of lady inspectors were soon drafted
to assist the men at the former Canal
Zone airport at Albrook.
When she joined the Gorgas Hos-
pital admitting office staff in 1951,
as information clerk, she took the
necessary tests and obtained a special
Federal license enabling her to drive
the Corgas Hospital ambulance or
any other official vehicle with or
without patients. She made use of
this permit on various occasions


when there was a shortage of regular
ambulance drivers.
She has been supervisory clerk in
the admitting office for the past 8
years. Because she is as fluent in
Spanish as she is in English, she has
come in contact with or to the aid
of many of the patients sooner or
later.
She was born in Santa Marta,
Colombia. Mrs. Smith's father was
owner of a coffee plantation which is
still operated by her brother,
William. She met and married her
husband in Santa Marta, where he
had come as an engineer with the
United Fruit Co.
The Smiths have been living in
the Canal Zone for the past 22 years.
He came here as a sanitary engineer
and later took the job of Chief of
the Canal Zone Division of Sanita-
tion. Recently he has been Assistant
to the Health Director.
When they leave the Canal Zone
in May, they will retire to the Smith
family riverfront homestead in Char-
leston County, S.C. Mrs. Smith will
hang up her ambulance driver's hat
and put her special permit away with
her souvenirs. With her husband, she
hopes to garden, play bridge, and
entertain children, grandchildren,
friends, and relatives.

The Night in Lisbon, by Erich
Maria Remarque, like many of
Remarque's books, uses war as a
background for the story. This novel
begins in the spring of 193.9 and
reaches its climax during the nerve-
wracking days of 1942. Remarque
was in the German Army during
World War I and later became
famous for his All Quiet on the
Western Front, one of the distin-
guished stories of that war. When the
Nazis came to power he left Ger-
many, is now a U.S. citizen and is
married to actress Paulette Goddard.
Darkwater is a suspense novel by
Dorothy Eden. The scene of the
story is a huge estate in England
which is famous for its beauty and
grandeur. To the pretty young
woman who was forced to live there,
however, the location was one of
horror and repulsion. Her attempts
to escape become involved in a series
of ominous family affairs. This all
adds up to a really first-rate thriller.
Camera Underwater is a fine guide
to underwater photography by
Horace Dobbs, who holds an honors

101 BENEFITED BY
TB ASSOCIATION AID
PROGRAM HERE
The Canal Zone Tuberculosis
Association during 1963 provided
financial aid to 23 families of em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organ-
ization and the military services who
were hospitalized in Gorgas Hospital
for treatment of tuberculosis.
A report by Dr. Jos6 A. Fil6s-Diaz,
chairman of the association's financial
committee, noted that through this
assistance a total of 101 individuals-
employees and dependents-were
benefited, with the amount of aid
totaling $7,630.
Dr. Fil6s-Diaz, in making the
report on behalf of the board,
expressed appreciation to the em-
ployees of the Canal Zone agencies
for the generous contributions to the
United Fund which, in turn, has
enabled the Canal Zone Tuberculosis
Association to do its part in helping
employees hospitalized for treatment
of tuberculosis.

Col. Goethals Had Ideas and Plan


For Conversion to
Revival of discussion and studies
of a sea-level canal has also revived
some memories of how Col. George
W. Goethals envisioned conversion of
the existing canal from a lock system
to a sea-level canal-and outlined a
broad engineering plan to do it.
This was recalled recently at
Dallas, Tex., by a retired veteran
Panama Canal pilot who was skipper
of the inspection boat used by
Colonel Goethals during construction
of the canal more than a half century
ago.
He is Capt. Sterling P. Miller, who
has made his home in Dallas since
his retirement in 1941. In the 21
years he was on the Panama Canal
he piloted more than 8,000 ships.
In an account carried by the Dallas
Morning News, Captain Miller
quoted Colonel Goethals' prediction
that canal-digging equipment manu-
facturers in time would perfect much
larger dipper-type dredges-the key
to future conversion of the canal to
sea level.
Dredges available in 1907-15
could handle only 15 cubic yards at
a time and could dig only about
50 feet deep. Goethals said dipper-
type dredges of two or three times
that capacity would have to be built,
and they would have to be able to
dig 75 to 80 feet.


Sea Level Canal
Dredging manufacturers of today
confirm Goethals' prediction. Dredges
of 30-to-45-cubic-yard capacity can
now be built which could dig from
80 to 100 feet.
Goethals' plan, as described by
Captain Miller, called for construc-
tion of new, single-chamber locks at
Gatun and Miraflores Dams. These
would be 140 to 150 feet wide, 1,500
to 2,000 feet long and would lift or
lower ships to or from 60 feet above
sea level. More powerful new dredges
of today would then dig the channel
from Pedro Miguel Locks north into
Gatun Lake to a depth 30 feet below
the bottom of present Gaillard Cut,
bypassing Pedro Miguel Locks.
At this point in the conversion job,
the level of water in Gatun Lake and
Gaillard Cut would be lowered from
present 85 feet above sea level to
55 feet. Then using that new lake
level, dredges would continue to
lower the bottom of the channel
through the cut and the lake until
it was 42 feet below the level of the
sea-the depth required by ships
moving at sea level from the
Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean.
Colonel Goethals, appointed chair-
man of the Isthmian Canal Commis-
sion and chief engineer of the canal
construction in 1907, later was the
first Governor of the Panama Canal.

Pay, Retirement Are Tops


Panamanian employees in the
Canal Zone enjoy an excellent retire-
ment plan, in addition to other bene-
fits, such as a medical insurance, life
insurance, and an annual leave allot-
ment of more than 5 weeks. The
normal work week is five 8-hour
days.
Based on the current average pay
in a clerk's position, or the position of
a stevedore or school bus driver,
retirement at age 60 would be $1,505
a year. This is after 35 years' service.
The rate of pay for this job would
have been about $1.14 an hour ($198
a month).
* But the pay scale will go up in
less than 3 months. Based on that
future pay scale for the same posi-
tion, the retirement for the above
listed positions, after 35 years'
service, would be $1,600 a year.
The minimum retirement for the
lowest rate of pay would be $1,260
for 35 years service and $1,050 for
30 years' service. These figures are
based on retirement at age 60.


In the higher pay scales, the retire-
ment income would, of course, be
much higher. Even now, the average
retirement pay of Panamanians who
worked in the Canal Zone is higher
than the average salary of a worker
in the Republic of Panama.
Some typical examples of jobs held
by Panamanians in the Canal Zone,
and the wages paid for those jobs
are listed below. In many cases,
additional years of service in these
positions mean that the person
actually is earning more than the
salary listed.
A sales clerk after 2 years, $246
Month; a truck driver after 1 year,
S170 a month; a doctor after 5 years,
$790 a month; an accountant after
5 years, $576 a month; an engineer
after 5 years, $677 a month; a teacher
with bachelors degree after 6 years,
$605 a month; a teacher with an
advanced degree after 6 years, $652
a month; a clerk-stenographer after
5 years, $3,58 a month; and a nurse
after 5 years, $435 a month.


union is the Canal Zone Atlantic
Side Dockworkers Union, which has
about 250 members. All three of
these unions are predominantly Pan-
amanian in membership. In addition,
there are about 100 Panamanians
employed in the Canal organization
who are members of unions where
the majority of the members are U.S.
citizens.
The AFSCME Local 900 has a
number of subdivisions. Some chap-
ters are the Firefighters, Industrial
Division, Dredging Division, teach-
ers, and locks employees. President
of Local 900, which has about 2,000
members is Mr. Saturnin Maugie,
employed as a teacher in the Latin
American Schools Division of the
Canal organization.
President of Local 907, one of the
smallest unions, is Mr. Edsel Wong
Samudio, employed by the Transla-
tion Section, Air Force Latin Amer-
ican Schools for military personnel.
Local 907 has about 400 members,
Panamanians who are employed by
Military agencies.
Mr. William H. Sinclair is the
International Representative for
AFSCME, AFL-CIO. Mr. Roland A.
Dean is Field Representative for
Local 900 of AFSCME.
Regional Director of'the National
Maritime Union is Mr. Rene Lioean-

llos is president of the Canal Zone
Atlantic Dockworkers Union. He is
employed as a winchman by the Ter-
minals Division.


14,600 Panamanians


At Work For PanCanal


And Military


Labor Day in Panama is a time of
thanks and recognition. The Latin
worker is recognized for his immense
contribution to progress and the
importance of his efforts. Directed
at him, this official event is a formal
proclamation of thanks from his
countrymen and Government.
And because the salute is Panama-
nian, it should include the.14,600
Panamanians employed by U.S.
Federal agencies in the Canal Zone.
These tradesmen, executives, and
professional men, paid the highest
wage scales in the nation, make a
contribution to Panama and to the
Canal Zone operation that is recog-
nized by officials as a creditable one.
The Panama Canal Organization
employs 10,777 Panamanians while
3,816 are employee by the military
services. Included are doctors, engi-
neers, teachers, nurses, accountants,
and administrators. These higher

echelon employees often earn in
excess of S10,000 a year and salaries
of 86,000 to $8,000 a year are not
uncommon in this group.
In the average position of a Pan-
amanian worker, the pay is still very
attractive. Supporting this statement
is the list of 27,000 qualified job-
seekers who have been processed
and now wait for openings to occur
for employment in the Canal Zone.
At the bottom of the pay scale, a
Panamanian worker in the lowest
position earns $149 a month. But
that is far below average, because
the average wage for a Panamanian
employed in the Zone is $213 a
month. That will increase to more
than $240 a month when an 11.9
percent pay increase for all Panama-
nian workers goes into effect July 1
of this year.
The average hourly wage is now
$1.13 and will be $1.28 on July 1.

cialty of Charles Vreux. He began his
career with the Canal organization
in September 1960. He is employed
at the Ancon Corral of the Motor

Despues de Medio Siglo


En el Mismo Sitio Mudan


Ahora la Div. Electrica


Despu6s de haber venido funcio-
nando en el edificio de Administra-
ci6n desde el afio de 1914, la Divi-
si6n de Electricidad del Canal de
PanamA, mudarA sus oficinas a prin-
cipios de este mes al inmueble 66-A,
Avenida Roosevelt, frente al dia-
mante de pelota, edificio que actual-
mente ocupa el taller de reparacio-
nes de tel6fonos y un despacho de
campo de la propia Divisi6n de
Electricidad.
Antes del traslado de la oficina
principal de la Divisi6n, se instala-
ran pisos de mosaicos, aire refrige-
rado y otras mejoras de menor
cuantia.
J. Bartley Smith, ingeniero elc-
trico que Ileva ya 36 afios de traba-
jar en el edificio de Administraci6n,
habiendo ingresado a la Divisi6n de
Electricidad desde 1928, es uno de
los funcionarios mis antiguos que
acude a Balboa Heights diariamente
a su trabajo.
* No se vaya a pensar, empero, que
la Division de Electricidad siempre
ha funcionado en el edificio de Admi-
nistraci6n. Primero lo hizo en el area
que ahora ocupa la Oficina de Pla-


nificaci6n del Canal de PanamA. En
1934 fue cuando se traslad6 al espa-
cio que ahora ocupa en el tercer
alto, donde antes funcionara la
secci6n de cupones de comisariatos.
Como por reacci6n en cadena, la
mudanza de la Divisi6n de Elec-
tricidad provocarA otras dos: el taller
de reparaciones telef6nicas, que
ahora esta en el edificio 66-A serA
trasladado al edificio contiguo, el
66-B; el taller de reparaciones de
estufas el6ctricas ocupara la secci6n
posterior del edificio 66-A.
,A cuantas personas afecta la mu-
danza? En las oficinas principles de
la Division comprende a 17 miembros
de ingenieria el6ctrica y de la admi-
nistraci6n general. En el taller de
reparaciones de tel6fonos a 7 fun-
cionarios permanentes y como a 10
jornaleros y ayudantes; en el taller
de reparaciones de estufas afecta a
2 jornaleros norteamericanos y sus
ayudantes.
La nueva sede de la Divisi6n de
Electricidad del Canal de Panama
fue construida hace 34 afios para
dependencias de dicha Divisi6n.


* Flautistas ambidextros del Ballet Colombiano que visit el Istmo la semana
pasada aparecen arriba hacienda sonar las maracas mientras, simultAnea-
mente, tocan las flautas. El grupo de 40 cultivadores del folklore colombiano
fueron huespedes del Canal de PanamA, visitando las Esclusas de Miraflores
y realizando seguidamente una travesia parcial del Canal abordo de la lancha
Las Cruces. Ademas de los Guias del Canal de PanamB, acompai6 al Ballet
Colombiano un grupo formado por niembros de conjuntos tipicos paname-
fios, quienes manifestaron que la misica folkl6rica colombiana es muy
parecida a la panamefia e igualmente alegre. El Ballet Colombiano lo inte-
graban musicos procedentes de Cartagena y de Call, Colombia, quienes
tocaban acorde6n, tambores, flautas, maracas e instruments similares a los
que 'se emplean en la mdsica tipica panamefia.

El Gobernador de la Zona del Canal, Robert J. Fleming, Jr., ha
proclamado este primer dia del mes de mayo de 1964, como el DIA
DE LA LEY en toda la Zona del Canal, considerando que es particu-
larmente conducente que se tome nota del sistema de jurisprudencia

En su proclamaci6n, el Gobernador Fleming solicita a todos los
residents en la Zona del Canal, asi como a quienes en ella trabajan,
su observaci6n y apoyo a las leyes que nos rigen.
El Dia de la Ley fue creado mediante Resoluci6n conjunta del
Congress de los Estados Unidos en 1961, a fin de que el 10 de mayo
de cada afio sea un dia de celebraci6n especial para los americanos,

y en su rededicacion a los ideales de igualdad y justicia bajo la ley.

CUANDO SE RETIRE, DEJARA


EL MANEJO DE AMBULANCIAS


La Zona del Canal esta a punto
de perder a su inica conductor de
ambulancias del sexo d6bil. Se trata
de la Sra. Eva Smith, quien ha jefa-
turado la oficina de admisi6n del
Hospital Gorgas durante los iltimos
8 afios, y partira en mayo con su
esposo, John Palmer Smith, Jr., quien
se jubila como Ayudante del Director
de Salubridad.
La afable Sra. Smith es mejor
conocida de todos como la eficiente
supervisor de 6 oficinistas de admi-
si6n, 13 conductores de ambulancias
y 4 mensajeros. Cuando la necesidad
asi lo ha exigido, ella tambi6n ha
manejado ambulancias, con igual
destreza y seguridad que el mas
expert de sus choferes.
Ser la 'inica mujer en profesiones
en que predomina el element mas-
culino, no es nada nuevo para la
Sra. Smith; durante la pasada guerra,
ella actu6 como la iunica mujer Ins-
pectora de Aduana, aunque lo fuera
por corto tiempo, en verdad, ya que
al rato se reclutaba a numerosas
damas para ayudar a los varones en
el Aer6dromo de Albrook.
Cuando ingres6 al personal de
admisi6n del Hospital Gorgas en
1951, como oficinista de informaci6n,
se someti6 a las pruebas usuales y
obtuvo licencia Federal especial,
capacitandola para conducir una
ambulancia del Hospital Gorgas o
cualquier vehiculo official con o sin
pacientes. En varias ocasiones tuvo
que fungir como operadora de ambu-
lancia, cuando se producia escasez
de choferes.
Por ser enteramente bilingiie, la
Sra. Smith ha acudido, solicita y nu-
merosas veces, en ayuda de pacientes
que asi lo requerian.


Natural de Santa Marta, Colombia,
es hija de un ex duefio de cafetales
que ahora administra su hermano,
William. Conoci6 a su esposo cuando
6ste fue a Santa Marta a trabajar
como ingeniero de la Compafiia
Frutera.
Los esposos Smith resident en la
Zona del Canal desde hace 22 afios.
El vino aqui como ingeniero sanita-
rio y mis tarde asumi6 el cargo de
Jefe de la Divisi6n de Sanidad de la
Zona del Canal. Hace poco fue
ascendido a Ayudante del Director
de Salubridad.
Los esposos Smith se radicaran en
su casa ancestral en las riberas de
un rio en el Condado de Charleston,
Carolina del Sur.
La licencia de conductor de ambu-
lancias quedara relegada a un desvan
cualquiera, mientra la Sra. Smith y
su esposo se dedican a la floricul-
tura, a jugar bridge y a quehaceres
familiares con sus hijos y nietos.

Victor Zakay, Ingeniero Estructural
de la Divisi6n de Ingenieria en el
Edificio de Administraci6n en Balboa
Heights, ingres6 a la organizaci6n del
Canal de PanamA en noviembre de
1961, y su trabajo consiste en el
disefio de estructuras para edificios,
etc. Zakay es egresado del Colegio
San Jos6 en la ciudad de Col6n, del
City College of New York, donde
obtuvo su bachillerato en ingenieria
civil y de la Universidad de Purdue
en donde recibi6 su master en inge-
nieria civil en 1961. Zakay es actual-

tural Hebreo de PanamA, una orga-
nizaci6n juvenile. Tambi6n es miem-
bro de la Sociedad Panamefia de
SIngenieros y Arquitectos, y de la

ci6n del Canal de PanamA, Victor

sultants en la ciudad de Nueva York
en 1960, y como professor en la Uni-
versidad de Panama. Zakay es sol-
Stero y su principal pasatiempo es el
tenis. El naci6 en la ciudad de Col6n
y reside en la ciudad de Panama.


Cambio de

Direcci6n
La Escuela de Anc6n ha cam-
biado su direcci6n postal que
antes era Box 5007 por la siguien-
te: Box M, Balboa Heights, C.Z.



MANEJE SU CARRO


EN TIERRA FIRE

Experimentos realizados por la
Comisi6n Nacional de Aeronautica y
el Espacio han demostrado que un
vehiculo que transit bajo condicio-
nes de lluvia copiosa, empieza a
perder contact entire las llantasy la
pista cuando alcanza la velocidadde
30 millas por hora. Cuando llega a
55 mills por hora, ya las Ilantas
pierden todo contact y el vehiculo
puede decirse que march a flote.
En realidad el vehiculo avanza
sobre un cojin de aire y agua sobre
la superficie de la pista. Esa falta de
contact efectivo con el suelo podria
explicar el misterio que circunda
ciertos accidents aparatosos y sin
raz6n aparente que se produce en
dias lluviosos.
Otros experiments sobre pista
seca y segura han demostrado que
en frenajes subitos y violentos, el
vehiculo se desliza sobre una capa
de caucho derretido. Al principio a
goma se calienta y empieza a soltar
una estela de caucho derretido,
engrasando el camino hacia un
possible desastre.

Hermosear en el Campus de la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal.
Terminada la fase de la cons-
trucci6n y habiendo entrado ya,
aparentemente, la epoca lluviosa,
se impone proceder a la siembra
de plants y flores que adornen los
alrededores de los edificios, labor
a la que queda cordialmente invi-
tado el pfblico en general.
Hay muchas personas que estin
actualmente ocupadas con la poda
y replante de sus matas y flores y
ellas podrian donar retofios para
el campus universitario.
El Decano de la Universidad,
Dr. Charles L. Latimer, declare
que la universidad agradeceria
cualquier donativo de esa natura-
leza para sus sardines.

SCree que el Golf

No es Peligroso?

Durante 1962 se registraron
accidents que incapacitaron a
18,000 personas en las canchas de
golf, comparadas con 15,000 en el
afio precedent.
La investigaci6n revel6 que
10,000 personas resultaron golpea-
das con bolas de golf y que otro
9 por ciento de las heridas fueron
. producidas por batazos. La insola-
ci6n dej6 postrados al 10 por ciento
de esas victims; el cansancio por
excesivo desgaste de energia inca-
pacit6 al 7 por ciento y accidents
producidos por carritos de golf
afectaron a otro 7 por ciento, debi-
dos en su mayoria al manejo des-
cuidado o temerario y vueltas sd-
bitas de los operadores de esos
vehiculos.


INQUILINOS NEGLIGENTES SON RESPONSABLES



DE MUCHOS DANOS A LA PROPIEDAD ALQUILADA


F1i,


2
/ 7

Frank A. Castles, Superintendente de las Escuelas de la Zona del Canal,
entrega los premios a los ganadores de la prueba de 25 metros estilo libre
para varones de 7 a 8 aiios de edad, en los events de nataci6n celebrados
el sAbado 11 del abril en la Piscina de la Escuela de Paraiso. El primer
lugar correspondi6 a Rogelio Welch, y el segundo a Frank Thomas, ambos
de Paraiso.


EL EXCESO DE VELOCIDAD


CAUSA DE LOS ACCIDENTS


Deploramos el exceso de veloci-
dad como el que, en los Estados Uni-
dos, recientemente caus6 un autom6-
vil que llevaba a dos muchachos,
patinando 250 pies en una curva
cerrada, cambi6 de veredas, patin6
otros 90 pies volviendo a su propia
vereda, otro patinazo de 50 pies,
volteAndose, elevfndose 15 pies en
el aire, deslizAndose unos 49 pies,
pegandole a un muro de piedra, y
quedando nuevamente sobre sus
ruedas. Si, el autom6vil qued6 hecho
una miseria: pero sus ocupantes reci-
bieron solamente leves rasgufios.
Ambos estaban usando cinturones de
seguridad. Ellos tuvieron suerte-pero
qu6 suerte habria tenido una ino-
cente familiar que hubiera venido en
direcci6n contraria en un autom6vil
sin cinturones de seguridad en sus
asientos y sin poder salirse de la ruta
del carro destrozado dando tumbos?


La novena de las Escuelas, que finalize en segundo lugar en la Liga Ame-
ricana, pero ocup6 el cuarto puesto en la clasificaci6n general, se acredit6
tambien su trofeo, el cual recibi6 el piloto del equipo Cedric Bailey,
a la derecha.


Sin duda alguna, los cinturones de
seguridad ofrecen protecci6n tanto
para los buenos como para los malos
conductores.
La Sociedad de Industrias PlAsti-
cas ha hecho la advertencia de que
la mayor parte de los envases plAsti-
cos( hechos como aquellos envases de
metal para gasoline de las fuerzas
armadas durante la II Guerra Mun-
dial) no son seguros para almacenar
gasoline. En temperatures de unos
1450 Fahrenheit y mAs que fAcil-
mente llegan en el ball de un auto-
m6vil o en la proa cubierta de un
bote con motor fuera de borda
durante un dia caluroso, la gasoline
desintegraria el plAstico. No se decep-
clone con la hechura de los envases
plAsticos. La manera mis segura de
llevar gasoline de repuesto es en
grandes envases de metal con tapa
de rosca, que llevan la aprobaci6n
de reconocidas organizaciones, tales
como la Oficina de Seguridad.


Liga Anti-Tuberculosa

Ayud6 a 101 Personas
Veintitres families de emplea-
dos del Canal de PanamA y de las
Fuerzas Armadas recibieron, du-
rante el afio pasado, ayuda finan-
ciera de la Liga Anti-Tuberculosa
de la Zona del Canal para hos-
pitalizaci6n o tratamiento.
Un informed preparado por el
president de la Comisi6n de Fi-
nanzas de esa organizaci6n, Dr.
Jose A. Fil6s-Diaz, indica que
101 personas-entre empleados y
dependientes de estos-se bene-
ficiaron con esa ayuda que mont6
a $7,630.
El Dr. Fil6s-Diaz, al rendir su
informed express, a nombre de la
comisi6n que preside, su recono-
cimiento a los empleados de de-
pendencias de la Zona del Canal
que, mediante sus generosas con-
tribuciones al Fondo Unido, hicie-
ron factible la labor de asistencia
para hospitalizaci6n y tratamiento
de la tuberculosis desplegada por
esa liga.


El ramo de Obras de Manteni-
miento ha podido determinar que.
con frecuencia, hay inquilinos que
causan, maliciosa o negligentemente,
dafios al inmueble que ocupan, lo
que luego require series reparacio-
nes que no habrian sido necesarias
bajo condiciones normales.
Aunque la situaci6n no es nueva
se estima convenient Ilevar a la
atenci6n de los inquilinos la necesi-
dad de que se eviten daiios y los
consiguientes gastos innecesarios por
raz6n de la indiferencia o descuido
en el manejo de la casa. Cuando se
solicitan reparaciones debido a dafios
producidos por negligencia, descuido
o mala fe de parte de los inquilinos,
el costo de las reparaciones les sera
cargado. Lo propio se aplicari
cuando se produzcan mudanzas o
abandon del inmueble.
Los alojamientos del Canal de
PanamA son generalmente repinta-
dos y aseados antes de ser ocupados.
La Oficina de la Vivienda tiene dere-
cho a esperar que les sean devueltos
en condiciones habitables, cuando
sean desocupados.
En las nuevas viviendas modernas
los gabinetes y mostradores cubiertos
de f6rmica requieren cuidado espe-
cial, ya que cuando se dafian su
reparaci6n result costosa y se hace
casi impossible cotejarla. Un utensilio
de cocina muy caliente, que se pase
del fog6n al mostrador, puede que-
mar la f6rmica, dejando un hueco.
Horadar huecos en las paredes;
dafiar el mosaico y hacer alteraciones
no autorizadas se estiman como dafio
a a propiedad. Tacones puntiagudos,
muebles colocados descuidadamente
o con puntos salientes y agudos, cau-
san gran dafio al mosaic. Seria
necesario que los inquilinos calculen
el probable monto de las reparacio-
nes de tales dafios.
La floricultura podria producer
dafios a la propiedad si no se ejerce
el debido cuidado en su planifica-
ci6n. Por ejemplo, si la tierra esta
casi a nivel del piso, cuando se riega
existe el peligro de que se cuele por
las rendijas y afloje los bloques o
los mosaicos. Es por ello que la Ofi-
cina de la Vivienda ha venido insis-
tiendo en que no se hagan los surcos
para las simientes mis altos que el
piso inferior de las casas. Tambidn
conviene cuidarse de plants que
crezcan pegadas a las paredes, ya
que causan podredumbre y facilitan
la acci6n del comejin.
Aparatos de aire refrigerado mal


Pagina 3


instalados tambien contribuyen a
causar dafios ya que gotean sobre
paredes y techos. El frio excesivo
causa condensaci6n lo que afecta a
la pintura o agrava el moho.
Hay puertas protegidas por mallas
de alambre que los nifios a veces
abollan, o rompen, al apoyarse sobre
las mismas.
Se han producido casos en que
los propios inquilinos-al olvidar la
Ilave-han roto la malla y la cerra-
dura para entrar a la casa.
En algunos casos la labor de lim-
pieza se ha intensificado en dema-
sia debido a que el inquilino que
desocupara la vivienda permiti6 la
acumulaci6n de desperdicios, mugre
y basura que no se preocup6 en
retirar al mudarse.
Hay inquilinos que jamAs limpian
detrAs de la estufa. Un poco de dili-
gencia no permitirA que residues de
polvo o jab6n causen herrumbre en
los gabinetes ni que el agua se
depositase y pudriese la madera.
Funcionarios de la Oficina de la
Vivienda opinan que si los inquili-
nos cuidasen de los inmuebles donde
resident como si fuesen propios se
evitarian muchas reparaciones y
dafios. No abuse con llamadas inne-
cesarias y costosas.
Con miras a dear aclarado cuando
se puede considerar que existe raz6n
para una Ilamada de emergencia, se
sefialan los tres casos siguientes:
a. Cuando la situaci6n encierra
peligro de dafio inmediato
a la propiedad.
b. Cuando constitute obsticulo
a la seguridad, salud o
salubridad.
c. Cuando alg6n aparejo esen-
cial no funciona y no
existe reemplazo o subs-
tituto disponible.
Las llamadas de mantenimiento
que no caigan en alguna de esas cate-
gorias serfn atendidas oportuna-
mente. Pero cuando se atiendan Ila-
madas de emergencia y sobretiempo
que no encajen entire las condiciones
arriba indicadas, el inquilino deberA
cubrir los gastos que se ocasionen.
Como un ejemplo, la Divisi6n de
Servicios Comunales, indica que un
fregador o servicio sanitario irremi-
siblemente tapado, cae dentro de la
clasificaci6n de llamada de emergen-
cia, pero no asi el gotear molestoso
de un grifo o pluma de agua, o una
pequefia gotera, que puede ser
atendida mis adelante sin peligro
inminente.

A 14.600 Asciende


N6mina de Panamenios


En la Zona Canalera


El Dia del Trabajo en PanamA es
la ocasi6n para el reconocimiento y
el tribute. El obrero latinoamericano
estA reconocido por su inmensa con-
tribucion al progress asi como la
importancia do sus esfuerzos. Dedi-
cado a ese obrero, la celebraci6n
official constitute una expresi6n de
agradecimiento de su Gobierno y
sus conciudadanos.
Y por ser ese tribute panamefio,
debe de abarcar a los 14,600 em-
pleados panameiios de las dependen-
cias Federales norteamericanas en la
Zona del Canal. Estos artesanos, eje-
cutivos y profesionales, que perciben
la escala de sueldos mis alta del pais,
contribuyen a la operaci6n de la
Zona del Canal en forma que merece
el reconocimiento y aprecio de los
funcionarios.
La organizaci6n del Canal de
Panama emplea 10,777 panamefios,
mientras que los servicios militares
ocupan a otros 3,816. Esto incluye
mbdicos, ingenieros, maestros, enfer-
meras, contables, y administradores.


Rubelio D. Quintero tiene mis de 23
afos de servicio en la Divisi6n de
Ingenieria y es Subjefe Ingeniero
Elctrico, en iluminaci6n. El trabaja
en la oficina de la division en Balboa
Heights.


Esta jerarquia mAs elevada de em-
pleados con frecuencia gana en
exceso de $10,000 al afio, y los sala-
rios que fluctian entire los $6,000 y
los $8,000 no son poco comunes, en
este grupo.
Aun en el promedio general, el
trabajador panameiio tiene .un sueldo
atractivo. Tanto es asi que hay actual-
mente 27,000 aspirantes entrevistados
y calificados que aguardan vacantes
para trabajar en la Zona del Canal.
En el extreme inferior de la escala
de salario, un trabajador panameiio
percibe un minimo de $149 por mes,
pero esto estA muy por debajo del
promedio, que es de $213 por mes
para el obrero panamefo empleado
en la Zona del Canal. Este promedio
subiri a mas de $240 mensuales al
entrar en vigor el 19 de julio de este
afio el aumento de 11.9% para todos
los trabajadores panamefos.
El salario-promedio actual es de
