UNSPEAKABLE NAME, HABITS TO MATCH

Marsh Mosquito Hordes Sharpening

Their Proboscises for Annual Invasion


The mosquito population of the Canal Zone is sched-
uled for a sharp increase within the next week or 10 days.
In fact, the annual invasion of Aedes Taeniorhynchus,
the hard biting but harmless marsh mosquito, may be
here already.
Canal Zone Health Bureau experts point out that the
annual flights of these pest mosquitoes occur soon after
the first heavy seasonal rains and on the Atlantic side
invade in astronomical numbers. The Northern Sanita-
tion Area, using light traps four nights weekly, last year
captured 23,601 mosquitoes in 1 week, in comparison
to an average of 100.
Typical breeding places for the close cousin of the
New Jersey salt-marsh mosquito are the low lying coastal
areas, where natural drainage outlets have been blocked
during the dry season by shifting beach sands.


At the beginning of the rainy season, these areas fill
with water made brackish by the high tides. Here
millions of mosquito eggs, laid in these low areas several
months previously, are hatched.
The breeding areas are practically inaccessible due to
vast tangles of mangroves with heavy overhang. Control
by ground or air is impossible, but all possible means
of keeping discomfort to a minimum will be taken by
the Canal Zone health authorities.
This mosquito can fly at least 25 miles, but normally
the invasions dissipate in about 2 to 3 weeks.
The annual invasion of the marsh mosquito generally
coincides with the renewed activity of the malaria-
carrying anopheles mosquito. For this reason health
authorities issue warnings annually for the general
populace to be on guard against all mosquitoes.


Lt. Gov. David S. Parker presents safety trophy to L. A. Ferguson, Director
of the Supply and Community Service Bureau.


S&CS Bureau Safety Trophy Award


Record: Four Times in 11 Years


Hoisting one or two to accounting-or a hope that for their sakes there'll be none, are four accounting Beatles. The
informal get-together had nothing to do with the annual accounting symposium of the Canal Zone Chapter of the
Federal Government Accountants Association this week, but two of them were members in good standing until
now. Left to right are Ringo, Paul, George, and John.


Low-Cost Housing

Rent Increases

SEffective July 1
An across-the-board increase in the
rental rates of Latin American hous-
ing in the Canal Zone will become
effective July 1, it has been
announced to officers of the Latin
American Civic Councils.
The bulk of the Canal Zone low-
cost housing will be affected. The
increases will range from $1 to $3.20
a pay period or every 2 weeks,
depending on the type and age of
the quarters.

Book Donations Campaign Launched

For USIS Library in Panama City


A group of Canal Zone and Pan-
ama residents has started a campaign
to collect books for the U.S. Informa-
tion Service Library in Panama City,
which was destroyed during the inci-
dents of last January. The USIS now
is in the process of collecting mate-
rial to reopen the USIS library in
Panama City.
This is a voluntary operation and
has no official connection with the
USIS other than their receiving the
books that are collected. Of special
interest are reference books such as
encyclopedias and technical volumes,
as well as general novels and books
about the United States.
Anyone interest in donating books
may send contributions to the Pan-
ama Canal Women's Welfare Group

The Canal Zone Governor-Pres-
ident safety trophy is proudly being
displayed by the Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau for the fourth
time in 11 years.
The trophy was presented by Lt.
Gov. David S. Parker to L. A. Fergu-
son, director of the Supply and
Community Service Bureau, who
accepted the award on behalf of his
bureau, in a ceremony in the Balboa
Theater. Canal Zone Bureau direc-
tors and personnel of the Supply and
Community Service Bureau were
present for the presentation.
The annual safety trophy award
was made for the first time for the
calendar year of 1953 and ever since
has been awarded annually to the
Panama Canal bureau that achieves
the highest percentage of improve-
ment in its annual disabling injury
frequency rate over its own previous
calendar 3-year average. This marked
the second consecutive year the safety
trophy was earned by the Supply
and Community Service Bureau.
The Canal Zone Health Bureau
was the first to receive the annual
safety trophy award, in 1953. The
following year the Community Serv-
ice Bureau (as it was then known)
received the safety trophy. The
Health Bureau earned the award in
1955 and 1956. The Transportation


and Terminals Bureau was awarded
the trophy in 1957 and 1958. In
1959 the Supply and Community
Service Bureau received the award
and in 1960 and 1961 it went to
Civil Affairs Bureau. The Supply and
Community Service Bureau won the
trophy again in 1962 and has held-
it since.
The award this year was for
achievement of 63 percent improve-
ment in the calendar year 1963 acci-
dent rate of the Supply and Commu-
nity Service Bureau over the Bureau's
previous 3-year rate.
W. L. Benny and Alfred Houston
of the Balboa Service Center were
presented safety plaques in recogni-
tion of achieving 2 million man-
hours' work without an accident.
The following received 1 million
man-hour safety plaques:
L. A. Ferguson, director, Supply
and Community Service Bureau,
1,380,345 man-hours.
T. G. Relihan, general manager,
Supply Division, 1,718,686 man-
hours, and a second plaque recog-
nizing 1,055,957 accident-free man-
hours.
N. B. Davison, superintendent,
Retail Store Branch, 1,436,630 man-
hours.
E. F. Rigby, superintendent, Store-

Special Events Arranged To Mark

Police Week Observance May 10-16


A special TV program, a test of
alertness in stopping a car, and bi-
cycle safety classes will highlight the
Canal Zone attention to National
Police Week, beginning Sunday.
A proclamation by Gov. Robert J.
Fleming, Jr., based on a presidential
proclamation, designates May 10-16
as Police Week. It calls attention to
the role that law enforcement officers
have played in the history of the
United States in safeguarding the
rights and freedoms which are
guaranteed by the Constitution. The
proclamation also notes that it is
proper that "we express our gratitude
for the dedicated service" of police-
men and that it is "important that
our people know and understand the
problems, duties, and responsibilities
of their police departments."
The SCN (Channels 8 and 10)
telecast will feature film of police
department activities and will show
police carrying out their work. Sgt.
R. A. Engelke, training officer, will


appear in a segment on the program
devoted to the general and spe-
cialized services of the department.
There will be brake reaction tests
(individual driver demonstrations of
reaction time and actual braking
time required to bring a vehicle to
a stop) in Balboa and Cristobal. The
tests are free for anyone. Locations
are the Balboa Central Police Station
at La Boca Road on Saturday,
May 16, at 2 p.m. and at 5th Avenue
(near the old Fort Sherman Ferry
Landing) in Cristobal at 4:20 p.m.
Wednesday, May 13.
Bicycle safety classes will be at
Balboa at 9 a.m., Saturday, May 16,
at the Training Center, Corozo Street,
and in Rainbow City at Cristobal on
Bimini Street at 9:30 a.m., Satur-
day, May 16. Youngsters between the
ages of 7 and 16 will be taught the
proper way to mount and dismount
from a bicycle, safe operating prac-
tices, rules of the road, hand signals,


use of horn and signal bell, and other
safety information. All must bring
their own bikes.
In the brake reaction test, officers
will use a device that fires a cartridge
to signal the operator of the vehicle
to stop. This gives the officer the
interval of time for actual thinking
processes and the physical motions,
combined with the time it takes the
vehicle to stop. This dramatically
illustrates the time-distance required
to stop from the time a driver first
realizes that he must stop. Police
know that this distance is greater
than most people realize.
There will be no open house at the
Central Police Stations in Balboa and
Cristobal this year, but Police Chief
E. S. Shipley said that telephone
inquiries on any matter anyone
wishes to discuss may be made to
Capt. Caddis Wall at the Balboa
Central Police Station or Capt. D. V.
Howerth at the Cristobal Central
Police Station.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


Husband and Wife Team Retiring,


Both with 24 Years with PanCanal


Mr. and Mrs. Milton H. Wright of
Diablo Heights have sold their boat
SNautilus, are packing their fishing
gear, and heading for Ontario, Calif.,
where they plan to make their home
after retirement from Panama Canal
service.
It's not often that a husband and
wife team retires from the Canal
organization at about the same time,
with about the same years of service.

in all the fishing tournaments she -
entered, and both Mr. and Mrs. ..
Wright plan to continue their fishing
prowess in the States. '''
They plan to leave the Isthmus by

Isthmus will do the work, at a charge
of $2. No appointment is required,
but it's wise to call a week or so
ahead .of travel time. Pressure hosing
of cars may be done from 7 a.m. to
11 a.m. and from 12 to 4 p.m.

bill with his travel papers to certify,
in New Orleans, that the car was
pressure hose-cleaned. Without such
evidence the passenger may find
himself accompanied by an inspector
to the nearest service station for an

the car before it is permitted to
proceed.
At Cristobal, cars are delivered to
the Terminals Division Repair Shop,
Building No. 1020, inside the pier
area. Here they are readied to be
placed on board the SS Cristobal.
Passengers then must go to the Cris-

THE ENEMY
I am more powerful than the combined armies of the world: I have
destroyed more men than all the wars of the Nation. I massacre
thousands of people in a single year. I am more deadly than bullets and
I have wrecked more homes than the mightiest of guns.
I steal in the United States alone over $500 millions each year. I spare
no one and I find my victims among the rich and the poor alike, the
young and the old, the strong and the weak; widows and orphans know
me to their everlasting sorrow; I loom up in such proportions that I cast
my shadow over every field of labor.
I lurk in unseen places, and do most of my work silently; you are
warned against me yet you heed me not. I am relentless, merciless, and
cruel. I am everywhere; in the home, on the streets, in the factory,
at railroad crossings, on land, in the air, and on the sea.
I bring sickness, degradation, and death; yet few seek me out to
destroy me. I crush, I maim, I devastate; I will give you nothing and
rob you of all you have. I am your worst enemy.
I am CARELESSNESS.

India, by Joe David Brown and the
editors of Life, is a beautiful addition
to the Life World Library published
by Time, Inc. Brown, who wrote
the text for this volume, acquired his
wide understanding of India during
his years there as a correspondent for
the New Delhi Bureau of Time and
Life. As Brown says "it is not easy for
a Westerner-or even for many East-
erners-to comprehend, much less
appreciate, the sprawling, elusive,
exasperating, preposterous country
that is India." Brown's sympathetic
reporting and the beautiful photo-
graphs induce one to search farther
for understanding of this fabulous
country.
Dorothy and Red is the story of
the marriage of Dorothy Thompson
and Sinclair Lewis. In writing it the
author has used letters and diaries
now included with the Dorothy
Thompson Papers in the Syracuse
University Library. The exciting
courtship of these two famous literary
figures, their fashionable marriage in
London, their life together and its
ending in divorce are all presented
sympathetically by Vincent Sheean,
who was a friend of both. There are
many photographs which add interest
to the book.
The Yellow Villa, by Suzanne
Blanc, is a Crime Club Selection
about a beautiful movie star who was
murdered on the balcony of her
lemon fellow house in Mazatlan,
Mexico. Several Americans are in-
cluded in the plot which finally is
unravelled by a Mexican Police
Inspector. The story is well told
and the scene will be especially
interesting to local readers.


The Canal Zone is the natural
dividing point between the moun-

Consequently birds found in Chiri-

300 Students

Earn Physical

Fitness Awards
Approximately 300 students in
Balboa and Cristobal High Schools
received awards for physical fitness
recently. The awards, in conjunction
with Physical Fitness Week (May
1-7), were ". .. in recognition of
physical fitness proficiency demon-
strated by meeting the national
standards established by the Amer-
ican Association for Health, Physical
Education and Recreation."
Each year incoming freshmen are
run through a vigorous battery of
tests which determine the individual's
strength, speed, stamina, and agility.
The students again are put through
the tests in their senior year.
Students who scored better than
50 percent on all the tests received
certificates. If a student scored 80
percent or better on all the tests, he
was awarded a gold seal. Forty-three
Balboa High School students received
gold seals, while twenty Cristobal
High participants obtained the
coveted award.
Earning top honors in the fresh-
men classification at BHS were Jane
Wilson and Roger DiRosa with
scores of 99 percent and 97 percent
respectively. Their counterparts at
Cristobal High were Eleanor Lewis
(96 percent) and Jack Sanders (92
percent).
The top seniors at BHS were Gail
Albritton with 99 percent and Don
Darden, also with 99 percent. Judy
Williams' 97 percent paced senior
girls at Cristobal, while Dave
Wilder's 95 percent led the boys.
Among the tests the students took
were pull-ups, sit-ups, shuttle run,
standing broad jump, 50-yard dash,
softball throw and 600-yard run-walk.

Duffer Dangers:

Mishaps on Rise

A study of golf accidents showed
there were more than 18,000 dis-
abling accidents of all types on the
links during 1962, compared with
15,000 for 1961. The survey revealed
10,000 persons were struck by golf
balls, and 9 percent of the injuries
were caused by swinging clubs.
Heat prostration felled 10 percent,
overexertion disabled 7 percent. Golf
cart accidents produced another 7
percent, and the growing popularity
of these vehicles and recklessness of
their drivers may result in a sharp
upturn in golfing mishaps.

UNSPEAKABLE NAME, HABITS TO MATCH

Marsh Mosquito Hordes Sharpening

Their Proboscises for Annual Invasion


The mosquito population of the Canal Zone is sched-
uled for a sharp increase within the next week or 10 days.
In fact, the annual invasion of Aedes Taeniorhynchus,
the hard biting but harmless marsh mosquito, may be
here already.
Canal Zone Health Bureau experts point out that the
annual flights of these pest mosquitoes occur soon after
the first heavy seasonal rains and on the Atlantic side
invade in astronomical numbers. The Northern Sanita-
tion Area, using light traps four nights weekly, last year
captured 23,601 mosquitoes in 1 week, in comparison
to an average of 100.
Typical breeding places for the close cousin of the
New Jersey salt-marsh mosquito are the low lying coastal
areas, where natural drainage outlets have been blocked
during the dry season by shifting beach sands.


At the beginning of the rainy season, these areas fill
with water made brackish by the high tides. Here
millions of mosquito eggs, laid in these low areas several
months previously, are hatched.
The breeding areas are practically inaccessible due to
vast tangles of mangroves with heavy overhang. Control
by ground or air is impossible, but all possible means
of keeping discomfort to a minimum will be taken by
the Canal Zone health authorities.
This mosquito can fly at least 25 miles, but normally
the invasions dissipate in about 2 to 3 weeks.
The annual invasion of the marsh mosquito generally
coincides with the renewed activity of the malaria-
carrying anopheles mosquito. For this reason health
authorities issue warnings annually for the general
populace to be on guard against all mosquitoes.

Book Donations Campaign Launched

For USIS Library in Panama City


A group of Canal Zone and Pan-

is in the process of collecting mate-
rial to reopen the USIS library in
Panama City.
This is a voluntary operation and
has no official connection with the
USIS other than their receiving the
books that are collected. Of special
interest are reference books such as
encyclopedias and technical volumes,
as well as general novels and books
about the United States.
Anyone interest in donating books
may send contributions to the Pan-

The Canal Zone Governor-Pres-
ident safety trophy is proudly being
displayed by the Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau for the fourth
time in 11 years.
The trophy was presented by Lt.
Gov. David S. Parker to L. A. Fergu-
son, director of the Supply and
Community Service Bureau, who'
accepted the award on behalf of his
bureau, in a ceremony in the Balboa
Theater. Canal Zone Bureau direc-
tors and personnel of the Supply and
Community Service Bureau were
present for the presentation.
The annual safety trophy award
was made for the first time for the
calendar year of 1953 and ever since
has been awarded annually to the
Panama Canal bureau that achieves
the highest percentage of improve-
ment in its annual disabling injury
frequency rate over its own previous
calendar 3-year average. This marked
the second consecutive year the safety
trophy was earned by the Supply
and Community Service Bureau.
The Canal Zone Health Bureau
was the first to receive the annual
safety trophy award, in 1953. The
following year the Community Serv-
ice Bureau (as it was then known)
received the safety trophy. The
Health Bureau earned the award in
1955 and 1956. The Transportation


and Terminals Bureau was awarded
the trophy in 1957 and 1958. In
1959 the Supply and Community
Service Bureau received the award
and in 1960 and 1961 it went to
Civil Affairs Bureau. The Supply and
Community Service Bureau won the
trophy again in 1962 and has held
it since.
The award this year was for
achievement of 63 percent improve-
ment in the calendar year 1963 acci-
dent rate of the Supply and Commu-
nity Service Bureau over the Bureau's
previous 3-year rate.
W. L. Benny and Alfred Houston
of the Balboa Service Center were
presented safety plaques in recogni-
tion of achieving 2 million man-
hours' work without an accident.
The following received 1 million
man-hour safety plaques:
L. A. Ferguson, director, Supply
and Community Service Bureau,
1,380,345 man-hours.
T. G. Relihan, general manager,
Supply Division, 1,718,686 man-
hours, and a second plaque recog-
nizing 1,055,957 accident-free man-
hours.
N. B. Davison, superintendent,
Retail Store Branch, 1,436,630 man-
hours.

Special Events Arranged To Mark

Police Week Observance May 10-16


A special TV program, a test of
alertness in stopping a car, and bi-
cycle safety classes will highlight the
Canal Zone attention to National
Police Week, beginning Sunday.
A proclamation by Gov. Robert J.
Fleming, Jr., based on a presidential
proclamation, designates May 10-16
as Police Week. It calls attention to
the role that law enforcement officers
have played in the history of the
United States in safeguarding the
rights and freedoms which are
guaranteed by the Constitution. The
proclamation also notes that it is
proper that "we express our gratitude
for the dedicated service" of police-
men and that it is "important that
our people know and understand the
problems, duties, and responsibilities
of their police departments."
The SCN (Channels 8 and 10)
telecast will feature film of police
department activities and will show
police carrying out their work. Sgt.
R. A. Engelke, training officer, will


appear in a segment on the program
devoted to the general and spe-
cialized services of the department.
There will be brake reaction tests
(individual driver demonstrations of
reaction time and actual braking
time required to bring a vehicle to
a stop) in Balboa and Cristobal. The
tests are free for anyone. Locations
are the Balboa Central Police Station
at La Boca Road on Saturday,
May 16, at 2 p.m. and at 5th Avenue
(near the old Fort Sherman Ferry
Landing) in Cristobal at 4:20 p.m.
Wednesday, May 13.
Bicycle safety classes will be at
Balboa at 9 a.m., Saturday, May 16,
at the Training Center, Corozo Street,
and in Rainbow City at Cristobal on
Bimini Street at 9:30 a.m., Satur-
day, May 16. Youngsters between the
ages of 7 and 16 will be taught the
proper way to mount and dismount
from a bicycle, safe operating prac-
tices, rules of the road, hand signals,


use of horn and signal bell, and other
safety information. All must bring
their own bikes.
In the brake reaction test, officers
will use a device that fires a cartridge
to signal the operator of the vehicle
to stop. This gives the officer the
interval of time for actual thinking
processes and the physical motions,
combined with the time it takes the
vehicle to stop. This dramatically
illustrates the time-distance required
to stop from the time a driver first
realizes that he must stop. Police
know that this distance is greater
than most people realize.
There will be no open house at the
Central Police Stations in Balboa and
Cristobal this year, but Police Chief
E. S. Shipley said that telephone
inquiries on any matter anyone
wishes to discuss may be made to
Capt. Gaddis Wall at the Balboa
Central Police Station or Capt. D. V.
Iowerth at the Cristobal Central
Police Station.

Esposos Wright
Los csposos Milton H. Wright no
hicieron lo de Cort6s, que dice la
Historia que quem6 sus naves. Fue-
ron mas modernos y pricticos, ven-
dieron el Nautilus, con aparejo de
pesca y todo, antes de encaminarse
a Ontario, California, donde se radi-
carin despuis de jubilarse, tras afios
de servicio con el Canal de PanamA.
No es lo usual ver a una pareja de
cinyuges coincidir en la fecha de
su jubilacion, pero en el caso de los
Wright, electricista de la Divisi6n de
Transporte a Motor, recibi6 su cer-
tificado de jubilaci6n en abril, des-
pues de 24 afios, 5 meses y 11 dias
de trabajo; su esposa quien el 19 de
mayo ajust6 24 afios de servicio con
el Canal, se jubilarA en junior veni-
dero, como t6cnica de contabilidad
de la Divisi6n de Contaduria.
El Sr. Wright es oriundo de Mi-
chigan; su esposa Cornelia, lo es de
Missouri. Se conocieron en Ontario,
California, en 1923 donde contraje-
ron nupeias, trabajando ambos en
Estados Unidos antes de venir al
Istmo en 1938.
Los esposos Wright comparten su
pasi6n por la pesca. En 1954 ella
tenia el record mundial de pesca de
pez vela, establecido con cuerda de
30 libras. En cuanto torneo ha
participado, ha ganado premios.
Los simpaticos esposos Wright
dejan muchos amigos en el Istmo que
les desean buenaventura en su nuevo
domicilio de California.

El Cor. Goethals Previ6


Canal a Nivel del Mar

Al tomar actualidad lo relative a un possible Canal a nivel
se reviven recuerdos de c6mo el Coronel George W.
Goethals previ6 la transformaci6n del actual canal del sis-
tema de esclusas al de nivel del mar-incluso delineando en
forma general un piano para realizarlo.


Esta circunstancia la sac6 a relu-
cir en Dallas, Tejas, el Capt. Sterling
P. Miller, PrActico del Canal, ahora
jubilado, que solia capitanear una
lancha empleada por el Coronel
Goethals para inspeccionar la obra
durante los dias de la construcci6n
hace mAs de medio siglo. El CapitAn
Miller se jubil6 en 1941 despu6s de
pasarse 21 aiios piloteando mis de
8,000 naves a trav6s del Canal.
En conformidad con publicaci6n
aparecida en el Dallas Morning
News, el ex PrActico del Canal dice
que el Coronel Goethals predijo que
el equipo de excavadoras fabricadas
para el Canal seria perfeccionado con
el tiempo, y las dragas de cuchar6n
serian much mis grandes-lo que
podria ser la Have para convertir el
canal a nivel de agua.
Las dragas disponibles en 1907-15
tenian capacidad solo para 15 yards
c6bicas y solo alcanzaban a 50 pies
de profundidad. Goethals predijo que
tendrian que fabricarse dragas de
cuchar6n dos y tres veces mayores y
capaces de escarbar hasta 75 y 80
pies de profundidad.
Las predicciones de Goethals se
han cumplido. Hoy se fabrican dragas
de 30 a 45 yards cibicas de capa-
cidad que pueden excavar hasta de
80 a 100 pies de profundidad.
El plan de Goethals, segin el Ca-
pitAn Miller, era de construir nuevas
esclusas de una sola camara en las
represas de Gatfin y Miraflores. Ten-
drian de 140 a 150 pies de ancho y
de 1,500 a 2,000 pies de extension
y podrian levantar las naves hasta
60 pies sobre el nivel del mar,
volviendo a bajarlas.
Las nuevas y poderosas dragas de
hoy, procederian entonces a excavar
el Canal desde las Esclusas de Pedro
Miguel, al norte, hacia el Lago de
Gatin a una profundidad de 30 pies
mas abajo del fondo del actual Corte
de Gaillard, pasando por alto las
Esclusas de Pedro Miguel.
A estas alturas de la obra de trans-
formaci6n, baiaria el nivel del Lago
Gatun y del Corte de Gaillard de 85


a 55 pies sobre el nivel del mar.
Vali6ndose de esa circunstancia, las
dragas continuarian cavando el
fondo del Canal, a traves del Corte
y del lago, hasta 42 pies debajo del
nivel del mar-el calado requerido
para el trinsito de naves del Caribe
al Pacifico.
El Coronel Goethals, quien presi-
di6 la Comisi6n del Canal Istmeiio y
fuera ingeniero jefe de las obras de
construcci6n del Canal en 1907, fue
mis tarde el primer Gobernador del
Canal de Panama.
