THE PANAMA CANAL

Vol. III, No. 8 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, August 14, 1964


50th Display


Featuring


New Catalog
Highlighting the 50th Anniversary
display presented by the Canal Zone
Library-Museum on the ground floor
of the Civil Affairs Building is the
recently published Subject Catalog
of the Special Panama Collection of
the Canal Zone Library-Museum.
The book lists 7,000 or more subjects
relating to the history of the Isthmus
of Panama as it applies to inter-
oceanic transportation.
Three advance copies were pub-
lished especially for the 50th Anniver-
sary by the publishing company of
G. K. Hall & Co. of Boston. The first
of the advance copies was presented
to Governor Fleming by Mrs. Eleanor
Burnham, Librarian Curator, through
whose efforts the catalog was pub-
lished. Governor Fleming wrote the
foreword for the catalog.
In addition to copies of the catalog,
the display includes a list of illustra-
tions included in the volume, a
drawing of the title page, ads and
proof sheets and the originals of the
photographs and maps which are
used in the publication as illus-
trations.
The Panama collection is the most
important special collection of the
Canal Zone Library. The bulk of the
collection covers the planning and
construction of the Panama Canal by
the United States. This takes in
books, congressional hearings, engi-
neer drawings, maps, diaries, photo-
graphs, and newspaper and maga-

Dues Collected

For 19 Groups

Of Employees
Nineteen employee organizations
holding formal recognition with the
Panama Canal are now collecting
union dues for about 5,000 employees
through payroll deduction. This pro-
gram was approved by Governor
Fleming and implemented in Jan-
uary 1964 by Executive Regulation
No. 80 after the U.S. Civil Service
Commission authorized Federal agen-
cies to withhold employee organiza-
tion dues through a system of
voluntary payroll deduction.
Under the program, employees may
voluntarily authorize payroll deduc-
tion of employee organization dues
by completing and signing a standard
form for authorization of dues check-
off and forwarding it to their respec-
tive employee organizations. These
forms are available from employee
organizations.
Employees may begin the payroll
deduction of dues at any time. They
may also discontinue them by send-
ing a notice in writing to the Chief,
Payroll Branch requesting revocation
of the authorization for payroll
deduction of dues. Although such
requests for revocations may be sub-
mitted at any time, they are made
effective only twice a year; at the
beginning of the first pay period after
March 1 or September 1, whichever
occurs first after the request for
revocation is received by the Payroll
Office.

STAMPING GROUND? Yes, that's where these student assistants in the Postal Division are spending their time.
Their job this summer is to prepare the special 50th anniversary souvenir stamp folders which will be issued
Saturday, August 15. From left: Carol R. Coffey, Bobbye Lou Herrington, Jackueline Coppenhaver, Edward M.
Wilder, and Mary Beth Hack.


Stamp Issue Plays a Big Role


In Golden Anniversary Event


Are you a philatelist? If not, are
you confused by the terms "first-day
cover," "first-day of issue," and "mint
stamp?" Don't despair! Here's the
dope on the Panama Canal Golden
Anniversary commemorative stamp
issue.
A commemorative stamp is one
which recognizes an important per-
son, place, or event. To mark the
completion of 50 years of service, a
set of six airmail stamps has been
issued. They are rectangular with
a horizontal format and in color.
They feature six aerial views, four of


Panama Canal scenes and two of the
cities of Balboa and Cristobal.
These stamps may be purchased
in different ways. One is the first-day
cover. This is an envelope that
carries the denominations) and
numbers) of the six stamps that
you request. The stamps are can-
celed with the words "first-day of
issue." If you want a first-day cancel-
lation you send a self-addressed
envelope to the Postmaster, Balboa,
C.Z., with a money order to cover
the cost of the stamps. You should
pencil mark the envelope in the


A MESSAGE FROM

GOVERNOR FLEMING
At this milestone of service to world shipping, it is appropriate to look
for a moment to the past-to those who helped make this proud event
possible. When the Panama Canal was a challenge, when its reality lay
only in plans and hard work, thousands of men from many nations came
forward to carry out the decade of labor that created this enduring
work of engineering.
Americans, Panamanians, West Indians, and men of other nationalities
worked together to conquer nature. Today, their triumph is echoed in
increased prosperity for maritime nations and lasting benefits to people
all over the world. As the Canal continues to maintain its reputation
as an efficient and dedicated world utility, the great vision and the labor
that created it is remembered. Those who guide its operation today
are mindful of this spirit of responsibility and accomplishment.

Two Luncheons


And Tour Mark


Observance

Panamanian Government offi-
cials, past and present, prom-
inent Panamanians, former
Canal officials, construction-day
workers, and shipping agency
executives will be honored at
special luncheons and other
events planned for August 14-15
to mark the 50th Anniversary
of the Canal.
Shippers will be feted at a
luncheon aboard the SS Cris-
tobal on the Atlantic side and a
reception for Panamanian and
visiting dignitaries is planned
by Governor Fleming.
Another luncheon hosted by
W. R. Grace & Co. will honor

MAURICE THATCHER HERE

FOR 50th ANNIVERSARY


Dean of the group of former Pan-
ama Canal officials visiting the Pan-
ama Canal on its 50th Anniversary
observance, is Maurice H. Thatcher,
lively nonagenarian who is the only
surviving member of the Isthmian
Canal Commission and the man who
headed the Department of Civil
Administration of the Canal Zone
from 1910 to 1913.
Thatcher has become well known
in Panama and the Canal Zone not
only as the unofficial "first Governor
of the Canal Zone" but as the man
who later introduced legislation into
the U.S. Congress leading to the con-
struction of the road connecting
Arraijan with Balboa and the ferry,
which until recently, operated be-
tween Balboa and the west bank of
the Canal. Both were named after
him later. He is the author of the
act creating the Gorgas Memorial
Laboratory in Panama; and the
promoter of action by Congress pro-
viding disability retirement benefits
to thousands of non-U.S. citizen


employees of the Canal organization.
Thatcher, who celebrates his 94th
birthday on the anniversary of the
opening of the Panama Canal, has
visited Panama a number of times
since World War II.
During one of the visits, the res-
idents of Arraijan, which was joined
to Panama City by means of the
Thatcher Highway, honored That-
cher for his efforts in connection with"

COLLECTIOfn
By Eleanor Burnham


Falling Star by Patricia Moyes has
a slant which is somewhat different
from the average detective story. Its
author is a screen-writer who has a
flair for swiftly drawn word-pictures.
This a novel of a movie star who
accidentally fell to his death in a
movie shot-or so it seemed. Mrs.
Moyes is the wife of an official of the
International Court of Justice at The
Hague. This is her fifth Rinehart
Suspense Novel.
The Hunting Ground by Francis
Clifford has all the elements of a first-
rate thriller-which it is. Henry
Brennan is on a photographic assign-
ment to an island in the Caribbean.
When he photographs a spectacular
plane crash high in the mountains, he
finds that he soon becomes an object
of suspicion to the government.
Escaping from the island appears to
be his only way to stay alive-but
departure is difficult and dangerous.
This is not actually a detective story
but it has all the careful plotting and
drawnout suspense of the best of
the who-dun-its.
Necessary Doubt by Colin Wilson
starts off exactly like a good old-
fashioned British mystery. It isn't
until one is half-way through that
a suspicion of other-worldness begins
to dawn. Colin Wilson is a young
professional writer who at 33 has
10 books to his credit. His detractors
consider his work poor indeed while
his admirers are equally ardent in
his defense. The Outsider is his best
known and most controversial book.
The Land Breakers is a historical
novel by John Ehle. This is an
exciting and authentic story of the
opening of the wild Southern moun-
tains during the latter part of the
18th century. This is a powerful story
about strong and resolute men who
seek to create new lives in unfriendly
country. There is an interesting


counter-plot with an Enoch Arden
motif which lends contrast to the
major theme. Ehle's ancestors lived
in these mountains and he has love
and respect for the native area. He
now lives near the campus at Chapel
Hill, N.C.
The Rector of Justin, the latest
novel by Louis Auchincloss is a por-
trait of a rector-headmaster-founder
of a New England prep school for
boys. The Rector, who to many
people resembles the famous Mr.
Chips-to others appears stubborn,
self-righteous and even sadistic. This
is a compassionate but analytical
portrait of a complex personality by
a fine writer. Auchincloss was
stationed in the Canal Zone during
World War II and wrote his first
novel, Indifferent Children, with a
local setting under the pseudonym
"Andrew Lee." The Canal Zone
Library has several copies in the
Panama Collection.
Best Detective Stories of the Year,
the 19th annual collection, once
again is edited by Anthony Boucher
that connoisseur of thrill and suspense
tales. Short stories of Ellery Queen,
Patricia Highsmith, and Stephen
Marlowe to name a few-are re-
printed in this 19th annual collection
of distinguished who-dun-its. Pub-
lication of this book is always some-
thing to look forward to, and this
one is certainly not a disappointment.
Sometimes a Great Nation is a new
novel by Ken Kesey, the author of
the distinguished One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest. This new novel is a
dramatic, exuberant story of the
Northwest lumbering country. The
host of characters seem larger than
life in keeping with the vast country
and the tremendous activity and
drama of the novel. Kesey was born
in Oregon and lives in the West with
his wife and children.

PROTECTIVE


HELMETS


REQUIRED
As a safety precaution, all em-
ployees in a duty status will be
required to wear protective helmets
while operating or riding as a pas-
senger on a motorcycle, motor
scooter, or similar vehicle.
The protective helmets, which will
be provided by employing units,
must be designed and constructed to
protect the head from impact injury.
They must be white, and white or
silver colored reflective materials in
1-inch bands are permissible as trim
to increase night visibility. If used,
this trim must extend horizontally
around the helmet and vertically over
the top of the shell from front to
back, intersecting the horizontal
band. The exterior shell must consist
of nonshatterable material, resistant
to impact and penetration. A firmly
secured shock absorbent cradle,
designed to support the helmet and
maintain separation between the
head and outer shell must be pro-
vided. Impact resistant absorbent
padding of substantial thickness in
all areas where the head is in close
proximity with or may contact the
outer shell, will also be required.
Visors are not required, but if the
helmet is equipped with one, it must
be of flexible or snap-on type.
Chin straps which are permanently
attached and adjustable so as to keep
the helmet securely in place, are
required and must be kept fastened
while operating or riding as a
passenger on the vehicle.



ARTICLE


PUBLISHED
Now he's among the notables on
the Isthmus.
Dr. Glen E. Murphy of the Canal
Zone College Staff achieved added
recognition recently with the publi-
cation of his article, "Preparation in
Office Skills as a Factor in Economic
Development" in The National
Business Education Quarterly.
The article was prepared as part
of Dr. Murphy's work as a partici-
pant in the U.S. State Department
training program at the School of
Advanced International Studies,
Johns Hopkins University, Washing-
ton, D.C. It is based on his experi-
ence as an education consultant with
the Agency for International Devel-
opment in the Republic of Panama
and in Colombia, British Guiana, and
the British West Indies.
Dr. Murphy's article stresses the
importance of the development and
utilization of a nation's human
resources in projecting industrial
progress and economic growth. Edu-
cation and training are cited as
factors equally important with land,
labor and capital in the economic
development of emerging nations.
Dr. Murphy gives special emphasis
to the need for business education.
During the past year, Dr. Murphy
has been an instructor in business
education, social studies and English
at the Canal Zone College. He is
serving as summer session director
at the present time.

DID YOU KNOW ?
No, the State with the longest
name is not North Carolina or South
Carolina. It's not Louisiana, or
Oklahoma, or California or either of
the Dakotas.
It's Rhode Island. The official name
of the smallest State in the union is
"The State of Rhode Island and
Providence Plantations."

The first individual license for a boat recreational site is issued to small boat enthusiast Governor Fleming by
Michael Zombory, left, Chief of the License Section and John W. Hare, Special Services Officer, right. The
license is a new type which must be obtained by small boat owners' who wish to install floats, docks, bohios, bar-
becue pits or other authorized facilities on the waters or shores adjacent to the Canal in an area extending from
the northern end of Gaillard Cut to Dump Inspectors Island and from the bridge across the Chagres River to the
log boom. They have been authorized in an effort to provide better control of congested areas and their maximum
safe use for the enjoyment of all. Any boat owner who already is using such an area must have a license.

Atrato and Truando Rivers. The year
was 1858.
In a report to the Secretary of War,
Lieutenant Michler described with
imagination and clarity, the terrain
through which the party passed, the
living habits of the Indians and the I
food which supplemented the meager
supplies they were able to carry on
their long trek. _
Other delicacies known by jungle w
travelers and many city folk living
in the tropics today were smoked
iguana, iguana eggs, monkey stew,
and alligator eggs.
The Indians of the region also lived
very much as they do today. "Where-

their families and all the necessities
of a household, including dogs and
chickens," Lieutenant Michler wrote.

Society. It is now available for 50
cents by writing the Society at Box

Silhouettes instead of words are
used to signal those traveling on foot
when they can cross the busy
thoroughfare with safety. The red
light, meaning a full stop, shows a
figure of a person standing. The
green light, indicating safety to
proceed, shows a figure of a person
walking.
The other traffic lights controlling
the movement of vehicles in that
area continue to be the standard
green for "go," red for "stop," and
amber for "caution."

STAMPS PLAY BIG PART
(Continued from p. 1)


Special envelopes are sold at post
offices in the Canal Zone for 5 cents.
They picture the Gatun Locks, the
anniversary emblem, and are en-
graved ""First-Day of Issue" and
"1914-1964."
Mint stamps are uncanceled
stamps, the type purchased every day
at the post office. In the anniversary
set, the only difference is that these
are commemorative mint stamps. The
Canal Zone Postal Service has pre-
pared a special official souvenir stamp
folder for the August 15 stamps, an
unusual addition to any stamp col-
lection. It is folded like a business
letter and has six panels. The folder
has a map of the Canal Zone on the
inside with the six mint stamps
mounted on the map near the area
depicted. On the outside of the folder
is the official 50th anniversary in-
signia, a short history of the Panama
Canal and Postal Service and another
canceled 8 cent airmail anniversary
stamp. The folder is $2 and will be
mailed at no extra cost.
Request for mint stamps and the
souvenir stamp folder must not be
included with orders for the first-day
covers, but sent separately to the
Philatelic Agency, Balboa Heights,
C.Z.,and must include return postage.
Special order blanks for mint 50th
anniversary commemorative stamps
and the special souvenir folder are
available at all Canal Zone post offices
and at the Philatelic Agency.
You might imagine that it's quite
a job to issue these stamps efficiently
and correctly to stamp collectors and
interested persons all over the world.
It is. In fact, the Canal Zone Philatelic
Agency has been working for the
past several months preparing the


August 15 first-day services. Several
permanent employees in the Postal
Division have been working exclu-
sively on the stamp issue. Ten student
assistants went on the job July 8 to
prepare the commemorative folders.
Orders for the first-day covers,
mint stamps, and the souvenir
folders have been steadily increasing
throughout the summer. Response to
the entire anniversary issue has been
extremely high, said Robert S. Herr,
Assistant Director of Posts. One of
the largest orders was for 100 of the
souvenir folders, worth $200!
This commemorative stamp issue is
the only one of its kind in Canal
Zone postal history. The number of
stamps and variety of denominations
are unprecedented in the Zone. The
stamps come in 6 cent, 8 cent, 15
cent, 20 cent, 30 cent, and 80 cent
denominations.
Ironically, the 8-cent stamp shows
the three-step Gatun Locks, a view
reminiscent of that on the 2 cent
Panama-Pacific values of 1913-14
U.S. commemorative sets. Some 20
to 30 million of these 2-cent stamps
had been produced with the title
"Gatun Locks" under the vignette or
picture. When it was discovered that
the scene was the Pedro Miguel
Locks, the completed stamps were
destroyed, the caption changed to
"Panama Canal" and the entire run
was started anew.
Philatelists, of course, can appre-
ciate such a "disaster" but postal
officials have made sure it won't
occur again. Congratulations are due
them for the exacting and excellent
job they have done on the stamp
issue. Saturday, you'll know why.

5,000 Empleados Pagan Cuotas Gremiales


A 19 Sindicatos Mediante Deducciones


Diecinueve organizaciones de empleados que tie-
nen Reconocimiento Formal con el Canal de PanamA
estan cobrando ahora cuotas sindicales a unos 5,000
empleados por medio de deducciones de planilla. Este
program fue aprobado por el Gobernador Fleming
y puesto en ejecuci6n en enero de 1964 por el Regla-
mento Ejecutivo N 80 despues que la Comisi6n de
Servicio Civil de los Estados Unidos autoriz6 a las
Agencies Federales a retener las cuotas de las orga-
nizaciones de empleados por medio del sistema de
deducci6n voluntaria de planilla.


De acuerdo con el program, los empleados pueden
autorizar voluntariamente la deducci6n en planilla de
las cuotas de la organizaci6n de empleados, llenando
y firmando un formulario regular para la autorizaci6n
de la deducci6n de las cuotas y para que sean remi-
tidas a sus respectivas organizaciones de empleados.
Estos formularios pueden conseguirse en las organi-
zaciones de empleados.
Los empleados pueden comenzar su deducci6n de
cuotas de las planillas en cualquier moment. Tam-


bi6n pueden suspenderla enviando un aviso escrito
al Jefe de la Secci6n de Planillas solicitando la revoca-
ci6n de la autorizaci6n hecha para la deducci6n de
sus cuotas en las planillas. Aunque estas solicitudes
para revocaciones pueden entregarse en cualquier
moment, estas son efectivas solamente dos veces al
afio; el comienzo del primer period de pago despu6s
del 10 de marzo o el 19 de septiembre, cualquiera que
ocurra primero despu6s que la solicitud de revocaci6n
es recibida por la Oficina de Planillas.


Mensaje del Gobernador

Es just que hagamos un alto en estos moments para dedi-
car un pensamiento a aquellos intr6pidos batalladores que
hicieron possible esta obra de la que todos nos enorgullecemos.
Cuando el Canal de Panama era solo un desafio al ingenio
del hombre; cuando solo comprendia un manojo de pianos y
las perspectives de ingentes trabajos, millares de hombres
procedentes de diversas regions, se encaminaron resuelta-
mente al Istmo para acometer la grandiosa y fatigante obra.
En una d6cada de sostenidos esfuerzos lograron realizar esta
perdurable maravilla de la ingenieria.
Estadounidenses, panamefios, antillanos y hombres de otras
naciones, laboraron conjuntamente hasta someter a la natura-
leza. Su triunfo lo fue tambien de la humanidad que se bene-
ficia en prosperidad creciente y difundida por todos los puntos
cardinals.
Mientras se mantenga el grado de eficiencia y dedicaci6n
con que viene funcionando esta via interoceanica, perdurarA
la memorial de aquellos hombres de visual y de gran deter-
minaci6n que la hicieron possible. Quienes cargan con la res-
ponsabilidad de esa labor, estdn conscientes de la misma y
animosos para descargarla con honor y eficiencia.

SEMISION CONMEMORATIVA

I I- DEL CINCUENTENARIO
.. ; I (Viene de la pdgina 1)


Un program communal para diag-
nosticar una enfermedad que afecta
solo a un nifio de cada 20,000 pare-
cera una extravagancia. (A menos
que sea su nifio quien la padezca.)
Y lo seria si el process fuera com-
plicad o carol.
Todos los nifios que se ven en
nuestras Clinicas para Nifios Sanos
en los Centros Comunales de Salud
son examinados para ver si tienen esta
deficiencia del metabolismo. Esta
enfermedad es hereditaria. No se
puede diagnosticar al nacimiento
del nifio pero cuando iste tiene 3
semanas de nacido una sencilla
prueba del orin, colocando una gota
de soluci6n en un pafial mojado, lo
puede determinar.
Qu6 es la enfermedad? Se trata
de dejar de metabolizar (utilizar)
uno de los aminocidos (una protein
bAsica) el icido fenilaminopropi6-
nico. Se detiene el desarrollo cere-
bral y se desarrolla una grave
deficiencia mental.


Podemos descubrir la enfermedad
a temprana edad antes que se desa-
rrolle el retraso mental. Si se diagnos-
tica temprano, una dieta apropiada
puede en verdad evitar la deficiencia
mental. Esperar hasta que aparez-
can las primeras sefiales de retraso
mental es esperar demasiado. Todos
los nifios sanos que vienen a los
Centros Comunales de Salud de la
Zona del Canal son examinados en
su primer vista. El examen dura
4 segundos y le cuesta al contribu-
vente 1 centavo cada 100 nifios exa-
minados. Es por eso que no creemos
que el program sea extravagant.
Cada Centro de Salud tiene Clini-
cas para Nifios Sanos con horarios
reglamentados. Al darle de alta a una
madre en el hospital, ella debe pedir
la direcci6n y el horario de la clinic
mas cercana a su casa. Se propor-
cionan muchos otros servicios ade-
mas del examen para determinar
dicha deficiencia. Ayude a protege
a su niflo por medio del Programa
para Niflos Sanos.

Usted puede imaginarse la canti-
dad de trabajo que significa enviar
estas estampillas en forma eficiente
y correct a los filatelistas y personas
interesadas en todo el mundo. Asi es.
La Agencia Filat6lica de la Zona del
Canal ha estado trabajando durante
los iiltimos meses preparando los ser-
vicios del primer dia el 15 de agosto.
Varios empleados permanentcs de la
Division de Correos ban estado tra-
bajando exclusivamente en la emi-
si6n do estampillas. Diez estudiantes
avudantes entraron a trabajar el 8 de
julio para preparar las cubiertas
conmemorativas.
Las solicitudes para los sobres del
primer dia, nueva emisi6n y cu-
biertas conmemorativas han estado
aumentando constantemente durante
el verano. Robert S. Herr, Subdirec-
tor de Correos, dice que la acogida
a la emisi6n complete de aniversario
ha sido enorme. Una de las solicitu-
des mayores fue por 100 de las cu-
biertas conmemorativas por un valor
de $200.

de los EE. UU. de Panamat-Pacifico

Unos 20 o 30 millones de estas estam-
pillas de 2 centavos fueron produci-
das con el titulo "Esclusas de Gatin"
bajo el grabado. Cuando se descu-
bri6 que la vista era de las Esclusas
de Pedro Miguel, todas las estampi-
Ilas fueron destruidas, se cambi6 la
leyenda a "Panama Canal" y se inici6
una nueva emision.
Por supuesto que los filatelistas
pueden apreciar tal "desastre" pero
los funcionarios postales se han ase-
gurado de que no ocurra nuevamente.



Interesante Ensayo

Del Dr. Glen Murphy

El Dr. Glen E. Murphy, una de
las notabilidades con que cuenta la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal, es
autor de interesante ensayo titulado
Preparacidn en Prdcticas de Oficina
Como Factor en el Desarrollo Eco-
ndmico, que aparece publicado en
el National Business Education
Quarterly.
El ensayo fue escrito como parte
de los deberes del Dr. Murphy
cuando participaba en el program
de adiestramiento auspiciado por el
Departamento de Estado de Estados
Unidos en la Escuela de Estudios
Internacionales Avanzados, Universi-
dad de Johns Hopkins, Baltimore,
Maryland.
Sirvi6 de fundamento a ese ensayo
la experiencia lograda por su autor
como Asesor en Educaci6n, Agencia
International de Desarrollo, en la
Rep6blica de Panama, la de Colom-
bia, la Guayana Inglesa y las Antillas
BritAnicas.
El ensayo del Dr. Murphy hace
enfasis en la importancia y utiliza-
ci6n de los recursos humans de una
naci6n en el desenvolvimiento de su
potential industrial y crecimiento
econ6mico. La educaci6n y el adies-
tramiento son factors de tanta im-
portancia cuanto la tierra, el contin-
gente obrero y el capital en el desen-
volvimiento de las naciones en pro-
ceso de desarrollo.
El Dr. Murphy, quien durante un
afio ha dictado la cAtedra de educa-
ci6n commercial, studios sociales e
inglbs en la Universidad de la Zona
del Canal, concede en su ensayo un
lugar preferente a la educaci6n
commercial.
