Vol. III, No. 14 50 Years of Service .. To World Commerce Friday, September 25, 1964



Dwarfed by one of the huge 44-yard scrapers used to remove earth from the Las Cascadas-Bas Obispo Reaches,
Joseph G. Moretti, Sr., President of Moretti Company congratulates the Moretti and Harrison project engineer
Blair Henderson as one of the final phases of the Cut widening project comes to a close.

Last Shovel of Dirt Ends

1 Phase of Cut Widening

Last week one of the last phases
of the $43,700,000 long-range pro-
gram for widening the Panama Ca-
nal Channel from 300 to 500 feet,
came to a close.
The last yard of the 51/ million
cubic yards of earth overburden be-
ing removed under this contract was
carried away by one of the four
44-yard scrapers which have been
working on the project since Jan-
uary 1963. The contractor complet-
ed the work more than a month ahead
of schedule.
Present to see the last load carried
away was Joseph G. Moretti, Sr.,
President of the Moretti Company,
which, in a joint venture with Nat
Harrison of Miami, Fla., made the

Disability Relief

Checks Will Be

Given Sept. 30

Checks for former employees of
the Panama Canal organization who
receive disability relief payments,
will be distributed September 30 in-
stead of October 1, it has been an-
nounced at Balboa Heights.
The change in the payday from
the first of the month to the last day
of the month will be for this payday
only and is being made because Oc-
tober 1 is a holiday in Panama.
The checks will be available as
usual on September 30 during the
regular officer hours at the Treasur-
er's Office in Ancon and at the First
Baptist Church in Cristobal.

low bid of slightly more than 45 cents
a cubic yard or a total base bid of
approximately $2,500,000. Also pre-
sent to see the job come to a close
were Charles McG. Brandl, who serv-
ed until recently as the Panama Ca-
nal Cut Widening project engineer
and Blair Henderson, project engi-
neer for Moretti and Harrison.
The contractors began actual ex-
cavation of the overburden on the
31/2-mile Las Cascadas-Bas Obispo
Reaches on January 21, 1963-3 days
after their equipment arrived and
was unloaded at the mouth of the
Mandinga River. The equipment
consisted of the biggest power scrap-
ers ever used on the Isthmus together
with supporting bulldozers, rippers,
cranes, service trucks, and miscel-
laneous minor items of equipment.
After 1 month of operation, the
contractors were ahead of schedule
and never fell behind although they
were permitted to halt twice dur-
ing unfavorable weather and were

required to handle considerable un-
anticipated slide material.
In removing the 5,500,000 cubic
yards of rock and earth, the big
tandem powered scrapers, at times,
moved as much as 10,000 cubic
yards each during a 2-shift day. The
average amount moved by each ma-
chine on a 2-shift day for the whole
period of work was from 2,000 to
3,000 cubic yards.
Still to be done is the final phase
of the Canal widening project the
first phase of which is scheduled to
be advertised for bids next year. The
remaining work consists of the ex-
cavation of approximately 12 mil-
lion cubic yards of material down to
a maximum depth of 48 feet below
average water level.
This project will complete the
widening of Gaillard Cut to a width
of 500 feet and permit all but the
largest ships to pass each other in
the narrowest part of the Canal even
during nighttime transits.



A reminder for returned summer
vacationers: If you didn't get the ini-
tial notice, all dogs and cats must
be registered and inoculated against
rabies immediately.
Special tags will be issued for cats
for $2. The inoculation form for
a cat and/or a dog must be forward-
ed with a $2 money order to the
License Section of the Civil Aflairs
Bureau, Balboa. Licenses are in ef-

feet for the period ending July 31,
Inoculations will be given at the
Veterinary Clinic at Corozal for a
dog or cat that is 4 months of age
or older. An appointment may be
made by calling Balboa 2883.
Inoculations for dogs or cats may
be obtained on Mondays between 10
and 11 a.m. at the Northern District
Sanitation Office in Rainbow City.

20 Agencies Involved

In Single Campaign

The 1964 Canal Zone United Fund
Campaign starts on Monday, Septem-
ber 28.
On Monday a keyman will ask
every Canal Zone employee for a
contribution to the Canal Zone Unit-
ed Fund. Every employee in every
Government agency in the Canal
Zone will be given the opportunity
to support the community agencies
in the United Fund to the extent he
deems best. Employees of some U.S.
Government agencies in Panama also
are a part of the campaign.
The goal is $142,500. It's a lot of
money. But there are 20 worthwhile,
deserving agencies to be supported,
and each one requires funds.
The 1964 Canal Zone United Fund
Campaign is scheduled to run from
September 28 to November 14. The
dates are set to coincide with certain
paydays. But perhaps we don't need
this much time. If everyone gives
a fair share the first day of the cam-
paign, the job will be done and the
campaign will be over. Think what
this means-if everyone gives his fair
share-the campaign could be suc-
cessfully completed in a day.
So, don't worry about the other
fellow; just think how grateful you
would be for the existence and the
availability of these community agen-
cies if you had need of them. Re-
member that this is a once-a-year
campaign, not something that comes
back and back for donations. So
make a substantial gift now and feel
a glow of satisfaction for a whole
year in having helped the community
in a broad, unselfish way.
Health seems foremost in the
minds of many residents of the Isth-
mus. The Canal Zone's Heart As-
sociation, Cancer Committee, Tuber-
culosis Association and Committe for
Aid to Handicapped Persons are
members of the United Fund. They
account for nearly $25,000 of the
Two welfare organizations, the
Salvation Army and the Atlantic Re-
ligious Workers' Christmas Basket
Fund account for $19,500.

In recreation, the YMCAs at Bal-
boa and Cristobal, the Jewish Wel-
fare Board, the USO and Latin
American Communities Summer
Recreation Program are very ac-
tive. Their budgeted amounts total
The American Red Cross continues
to furnish community service on a
broad front. The United Fund has
budgeted $22,000 for this.
The biggest participating agencies
are the International Boy Scouts and
Girl Scouts and the Canal Zone
Council, Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts.
Their total allotment is $46,400.
There are other token agencies in-
cluded in the field of national and
international welfare but the amount
involved is small.
Although the United Fund would
prefer to have all donations made to
it as a whole, any individual may
designate all or part of his contribu-
tion for any specific participating
agency he desires. Since the budget
was planned on a basis of meeting
the needs of all agencies, such de-
signation is not helpful, but will be
honored if made.
Contribution may be made in
cash, by check, and, for many em-
ployees, by payroll deduction. Pan-
ama Canal and Canal Zone Govern-
ment employees for example, may
designate a stated amount to be de-
ducted by payroll deduction over a
stated period.
For the first time, a new scheme
is available. A stated amount may
be deducted from each pay period
all around the year. Thus a deduc-
tion of $1 per pay period is a total
of $26. A deduction of $2 per pay
period would mean a total gift of
$52. This is an easy way to spread
your giving throughout the year and
yet be more generous than otherwise.
Keymen will have information
about each agency ready for you,
on September 28th. Feel free to ask
questions of you keyman. And be
sure to ask yourself-am I giving my
fair share?

Your Right

To Vote!
U.S. citizen employees and their
wives should look to their voting
rights in the coming presidential
election. Many States have revised
voting laws recently in regard to
overseas employees of the U.S. Gov-
In most States, for example, it is
possible now for overseas civilians
to register by mail, while Arkansas,
North Dakota, and Texas require no
registration. The time to register to
vote is right now!
The Federal Post Card Applica-
tion (popularly known as FPCA) for
absentee voting can be obtained by
telephoning the office of the Deputy
Personnel Director, 2-2625, or in per-
son at room 243-A in the Adminis-
tration Building at Balboa Heights.

Play Cast

The Theatre Guild has completed
casting for its October play, Summer
in New York, a hilarious bedroom
Gloria Green will play the part

from Albany, who is undecided be-
tween her rich and demanding fian-
ce (George Budjen) and a newly ac-
quired boy friend from Philadelphia
(Mike Kocher).
Minor roles are played by Kathy
Casey and Johann Meyer in support
of the various comedy situations.

New York apartment of the news-
paperwoman's big brother, an air-
line pilot, played by Don Wilcox.


(EDITo's NOTE: This is one in a se-

Play it cool man! To come home
to an air-conditioned house after be-
ing under the tropical sun is wonder-
ful-specially if you know how to
keep your air-conditioner working at
top efficiency.
Even if you prefer freezing weath-
er, avoid running your machine at
its coldest point. This removes mois-
ture from inner walls and causes
cracking of woodwork, cabinets and
paint. Also, moisture on the outside
walls exposed to normal tempera-
tures will condense, damaging paint
and causing extensive mildew.
Water dripping from the machine
onto the overhang often splashes
against the walls, causing damage
and fungus growth on frame struc-
tures. Exterior walls are affected by
air-conditioners, and require more
frequent painting than other parts
of the house.
So much for the outside of your
home. Now let's take a look inside.
Watch out for stains, damage or
wood rot on interior walls and floors

made by moisture dripping from the
shell of the air-conditioner. It may
be due to improper installation, over-
cooling, or a choked drain. If it
isn't any of these, the cause may be
the accumulated sludge in the ma-
chine. In that case it should be re-
moved and given a good "spring
Some machines require insulation
to prevent water condensation on
the shell, and it's a good idea to put
a drain pan under the air-condition-
er to avoid damages.
And . back to the cold weather
lovers. Did you know that experi-
ments by the Navy in the tropics in-
dicate it is unhealthy to drastically
lower temperature by air-condition-
ing. So try to keep within the 75
to 78 degrees average. A good rule
is to keep interior temperature not
more than 10 degrees below the out-
side temperature.

In March 1964, Mr. Cook, my bi-

showed me a pamphlet: "National

Students." It had addresses of co-

or research for students with high
Through his encouragement, I
wrote for information. I selected a
few colleges, applied for the courses,
and was accepted at Asbury College,
Wilmore, Ky., to study biology. The
program began on June 15 and end-
ed on August 7.
Getting there several days in ad-
vance was good because I got to
know the NSF staff, college students,
and Wilmore, the town nearest the
June 15 was orientation day and
all 58 of the NSF students were
given name tags to wear until we
got to know each other. That night
the college held a reception for us.
There were three courses offered
under this program: Biological Sci-
ence Curriculum Studies course-Mo-
lecules to Man or commonly called
the Blue Version; Chemical Bond
Approach for chemistry students;
and the Physical Science Study Com-
mittee course.
All are advanced high school
courses, one of which is taught here
in Balboa High School-PSSC phy-
sics. Special labs were also offered.

Most Americans take for granted
the term "Father of his Country"
when speaking of George Washing-
ton. But who gave him this name?

The earliest know reference occurred
in Nord Americanische Kalender, a
German almanac printed at Lan-
caster, Pa., in 1779.

In the upper part of the full-page
frontispiece of the almanac is a figure
of Fame with a trumpet in one hand
and a medallic portrait labeled
"Washington" in the other. From the
trumpet come the words Des Landes
Vater-"the Father of the Country."

A Book About American
History, Harper & Row. Inc


By Eleanor Burnham

Love on a Leash is a funny book
by a young bridegroom, Kurt Unkel-
bach, who soon finds that his wife
is a "Dog Nut." His membership in
the American Society of Dog Nuts
is compulsory, but is brightened by
many lively moments. Of course
some experiences are rather bad,
such as the memorable Christmas
when 14 Labrador retrievers dine
on turkey while Unkelbach eats his
pork and beans. This semi-biography
is a spoof which will be amusing to
dog lovers but may seem too near
the truth for pleasure to those who
don't drool over Isthmian Fidos.
You Only Live Twice, the title of
the latest James Bond adventure
gives the reader a queer sense of
foreboding. Ian Fleming, its pro-
lific author, died last month. In this
latest novel, his famous hero, James
Bond, is sent on a harrowing mission
to the Orient. According to reports
Fleming, at the time of his death,
had finished one last James Bond
story which soon will be published.
Deepdown River is a new novel
by Neill C. Wilson with its locale
in the beautiful mountain country
of north-central Idaho. The story
is told by Jamie, the younger son,
who is 12 years old at the beginning
of the story. At the end he is a
construction engineer coming home
again to dam Deepdown River for a
power project. This a warm, whole-
some story of affectionate family life
and is quite a pleasant change from

the grim and sordid novels now so
common in modem fiction.
Biffen's Millions, a light-hearted
story by P. G. Wodehouse is one
more in the long series by "the most
prolific and original writer of light
social comedy in English and prob-
ably in the world." This is the opin-
ion of John W. Aldridge who tells
us that Wodehouse's works have been
translated into dozens of languages
including Polish and Chinese. Biffen's
Millions is the author's 68th book.
The Antagonists is a thriller by
William Haggard in which his Col-
onel Russell of the Security Exchange
goes after the people behind the at-
tempted assassination of a VIP scien-
tist. Haggard is top-notch among so-
phisticated British spy writers. This
one upholds the tradition.
Gauguin is a fascinating account
of the life of the great French paint-
er written by Henri Perruchet and
translated by Humphrey Hare. The
author has discovered and talked
with former friends of Gauguin, has
gone through many unpublished doc-
uments in private collections and
thus has been able to throw new
light on the story of Gauguin's life.
The book is illustrated by details
from Gauguin's work, photographs
of his family and friends, and sketch-
es of the painter by other artists.
There is a brief account of Gauguin's
months in Panama. This is a wonder-
ful book which will appeal to all Isth-
mian art lovers.

In all three sections we averaged 6
hours a day in classes, 2 hours of
lecture and 4 hours of lab. Special
lab was twice a week.
The biology section was divided
into three special labs. We could
take our choice of one.
In spite of all this class work, we
were allowed plenty of time for rec-
reation. In our free time we could
participate in golf, tennis, basketball,
swimming, and tumbling, or wash
our clothes, iron, clean our rooms, or

something planned for us to do. One
Saturday we played miniature golf
and on another we went to Mam-

fore long, we were in our last week
with finals coming up. On Thurs-
day, August 6, we had our finals.

Feathered i

Friends Are

Critics, Too!

Sixteen pair of critical eyes watch
every brush stroke taken by Miss
Mary L. Clark, R.N., when she works
at her easel at her Diablo home. Nor
are her critics silent, for most of
them are talking parrots and macaws,
with a beautiful cocaktoo from Aus-
tralia for additional class.
Miss Clark, who is a p.m. super-
visor at Gorgas Hospital, (which
means she is on duty from 3 to 11
p.m.), usually paints in her spare
time. She has had her work acclaim-
ed by art critics, and she has sold
most of her paintings.
Cy, a gold and blue macaw from
Lima, Peru, sat on her shoulder as
she explained that her bird family
started-as families usually do-with
one. She was walking on Fourth of
July Avenue in Panama City one
day years ago when she saw a for-
lorn bird for sale. She felt sorry
for the poor bird and bought it.
Never before or since had she seen
a bird like that one, and Miss Clark
became interested in the tropical
feathered species.
Next she happened to go through
the Panama City market, and again
felt sorry for a poor caged parrot.
That bird went home with her, too.
A Peruvian festival parrot was add-
ed to her bird family when Miss
Clark visited Lima, Peru and the
market there. The festival parrot
had belonged to an old Peruvian In-
dian and probably had never heard
a word of English before Miss Clark
acquired it. But language was no
barrier. Three days later, and back
in the Canal Zone, the bird piped
up as Miss Clark was leaving for
Gorgas, "Bye now. Have to go to
A dwarf macaw, purchased on
Chiva Chiva trail in Panama, usually
goes shopping with Miss Clark. This
type of macaw is relatively rare.
The conversational span of the dwarf
macaw doesn't go much farther than
"Hello Papa." Now and then this
macaw lets loose mildly with a bit

Local Boy


At Citadel

Cadet Harry D. Foster, Jr., son of
Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Foster, Sr. of
Balboa was among the 680 freshmen
who completed "Plebe Week" at The
Citadel in Charleston, S.C. recently.
Upperclassmen registered and class-
es began on September 17.
Following traditions evolved at the
military college since its founding
in 1842, freshmen cadets are indoc-
trinated during a week of concen-
trated training prior to the reporting
of upperclassmen. This enables them
to take their place as members of
the South Carolina Corps of Cadets
when it forms upon the arrival of
the cadets of the upper classes.
During "Plebe Week" the fresh-
men underwent instruction in drill,
college regulations, honor system,
traditions of The Citadel, and other
training necessary to assist each new
cadet in developing quickly so that
he could assume his position in class-
room or on the parade ground.

Two critics watch every brush stroke as Miss Mary L. Clark, R.N. adds the finishing touches to one of her lovely
paintings. Cy, on her shoulder, is a blue and gold macaw. Keeping a sharp eye on Cy, as well as the painting,
is a dwarf macaw familiar known in his bird circles as "Papa." In the background are other members of the
feathered family, in cages Miss Clark made.

of noisy chatter, but the festival par-
rot mutters "Papa, will you shut up!"
and puts an end to THAT nonsense.
The dwarf macaw, incidentally,
exhibits the human trait of jealousy.
Should Miss Clark leave him behind
when she goes out for a walk, or
shopping-and the macaw seems to
know when she is not on duty-the
macaw shows his displeasure by
pulling out his own tail feathers.
The beautiful long-tailed blue and
gold macaw was acquired by Miss
Clark when the bird was a sickly
baby. She gently nursed the bird
back to health and now Cy is a gen-

tie, loving, wonderful pet, with a
36-inch wingspread.
Beside painting, Miss Clark makes
her own bird cages. With so large
a bird family, bird cages would run
into money. She has experimented
and now is able to make large, at-
tractive cages that are furnished with
bird "toys," such as sets of alumi-

Study, Hard Work

Pay Off With Degree

Fellow workers of Theodore D.
Melanson of the Accounting Division
think he should have a new name
plate on his desk. It should read
"Theodore D. Melanson, B.S."
In addition to graduating from
Canal Zone Junior College, Ted Me-
lanson spent 9 years of evening and
summer study to get those extra two
initials after his name.
Since 1055, Melanson has been
taking evening classes at Canal Zone
Junior College and at the local ex-
tension courses offered by Louisiana
State University and Florida State
Starting in 1960, he used his va-
cations to attend the summer ses-
sion at Mississippi State University.
Back he went in 1962 and again this
summer. On August 24, he receiv-
ed a bachelor of science degree with
major in accounting from the Col-
lege of Business and Industry.
Ted Melanson is in charge of the
Construction Accounting Section of
the Plant Accounting Branch. He
started with the Panama Canal in
1953 and all of his service has been
in the Office of the Comptroller. He
has been promoted four grades and
attributes this to the fact that he has
continued to study and improve his
He is frank to say that he hopes

his college degree will open the way
to further promotions for him.
Well known locally, Melanson has
won a lot of prizes as a champion
bowler and has announced bowling
tournaments on TV. His golf hand-
ciap is 10 to 11, although he hasn't
had time to play much lately.
At Junior College, he was on the
all-star team in baseball, football
and also was on the swimming team.
Hardest part of his education mar-
athon was that his family gave up
vacation while he was studying at
Mississippi. Melanson lives in La Bo-
ca with his wife and three children.

IETA: $142.500

Vol. III, No. 14 50 Ailos de Servicios . Para el Comercio Mundial Viernes 25 de Septiembre de 1964

Ensanche del Canal


La semana pasada lleg6 a su final una de las 61timas etapas
del program de largo alcance de $43,700,000 para el ensanche
del Canal de PanamA de 300 a 500 pies.
La iltima yarda de cinco y medio millones de yards c6-
bicas de tierra removida bajo este contrato, fue Ilevada por uno
de los cuatro mototraillas de 44 yards que han estado traba-
jando en el proyecto desde enero de 1963. El contratista ter-
min6 el trabajo con mAs de un mes de anticipaci6n.

Estaba present para ver llevarse
el l6timo cargamento, Joseph G. Mo-
retti, padre, president de la Moretti
Company, la cual, en una aventura
conjunta con Nat Harrison, de Mia-
mi, Florida, hizo la oferta mas baja
de un poco de mas de 45 centavos
por yarda c6bica o una oferta to-
tal de aproximadamente $2,500,000.
Tambien estaba present para ver el
trabajo en su etapa final, Charles
McG. Brandl, quien sirvi6 hasta ha-
ce poco como el ingeniero del Pro-
yecto del Ensanche del Corte del
Canal de PanamA, y Blair Hender-
son, ingeniero de proyecto para Mo-
retti y Harrison.
Los contratistas iniciaron la actual
excavaci6n de la tierra en las tres y
media millas de las Rectas Las Cas-
cadas-Bas Obispo el 21 de enero de
1963-tres dias despues de la legada
del equipo y fue descargada en la
boca del Rio Mandinga. El equipo
consisti6 en grandes y poderosos mo-
totraillas jams usados en el Istmo
junto con bulldozers, rasgadoras,
grilas, camiones y otro equipo menor.

Despues de un mes de operaci6n,
los contratistas estaban trabajando
con adelanto y nunca se quedaron
atrAs, lo que les permiti6 suspender
dos veces el trabajo debido a condi-
ciones adversas del tiempo.
Al remover las 5,500,000 yards
ciibicas de roca y tierra, los grandes
mototraillas removieron a veces has-
ta 10,000 yards cibicas durante un
dia de dos jornadas.
Todavia falta por hacer la ilti-
ma etapa del proyecto de ensanche
del Canal, cuya primera parte de-
berA salir a licitaci6n el afio pr6-
ximo. El trabajo restante consiste
en la excavaci6n de iproximada-
mente 12,000,000 de yards clbicas
de material hasta una profundidad
de 48 pies debajo del nivel normal
del agua.
Este proyecto completarA el en-
sanche del Corte Gaillard a un an-
cho de 500 pies y permitirA a todos
los barcos, con excepci6n de los mas
grandes, cruzarse en la parte mas
angosta del Canal ani durante los
trAnsitos nocturnos.

tramo Las Cascadas-Bas Obispo labor que termin6 con mis de un mes de anticipaci6n.

El entrenador del equipo de atletismo, Carlos Belizaire, espera una mejor
actuaci6n de su grupo de corredoras, que las que fueron a las Olimpiadas
de Roma en 1960, especialmente de Marcella Daniel y Lorraine Dunn,
debido a sus excelentes condiciones fisicas.

El mi6rcoles 30 del present par-
tirA rumbo a Tokio, Jap6n, por la
via de Los Angeles, la delegaci6n
panamefia que competirA en los Jue-
gos Olimpicos que tendrAn lugar en
la capital japonesa del 10 al 24 de
octubre pr6ximo.
La delegaci6n estA integrada por
doce atletas en seis deportes: cuatro
en atletismo femenino, tres en lucha,
dos en esgrima, y uno cada uno en
judo, levantamiento de pesas y boxeo.
Las esperanzas panamefias estan
fincadas principalmente en el equipo
femenino de pista que cuenta con
cuatro veloces corredoras, tres de
ellas residents en la Zona del Canal
e hijas de empleados del Canal de
Panama. Ellas son Lorraine Dunn,
quien participarA en 80 metros con
obstAculos y el relevo de 4 x 100
metros, y cuyo padre William Dunn,
resident en Pedro Miguel, es apun-
tador de tiempo en la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n en Balboa; Marcella Da-
niel, hija de James Daniel, resident

gerente del Almacin de Balboa.
La otra integrante del equipo de
atletismo es la gran corredora Jean
Holmes, hoy sefiora de Howard Mit-
chell, que residia en Paraiso y aho-
ro vive en Nueva Jersey con su es-
poso. Tambien estarA en las pmrebas
de 100 y 200 metros y el relevo de
4 x 100.
El entrenador del equipo de atle-
tismo es el professor Carlos Belizaire,
quien ya estuvo en los Juegos Olim-
picos de Roma, en 1960, con otra
delegaci6n panamefia de ese deported.
La lucha libre estara representada
por los luchadores Eduardo Camp-
bell, Si6n E. Cohen y Alfonso Gon-
zalez. El entrenador y delegado lo
sern Luis Friedman, ex luchador

tegoria gallo, campe6n pluma en los
Juegos Bolivarianos de 1961 en Co-
lombia, subcampe6n pluma en los

ribe en 1962 en Kingston, Jamaica

Panamericanos de 1963 en Sao Pau-
lo, Brasil, serA el representante pa-
namefio en levantamiento de pesas.

Por encima de sus hombros, 16
pares de pupilas contemplan-con mi-

pincel de la sefiorita Mary L. Clark,
Enfermera Registrada, da sobre el

van sus esfuerzos artisticos y los co-

Julio en PanamA y se apiad6 del bi-
cho que le ofrecian. En otra oca-
si6n fu6 al mercado ptiblico de Pa-
nam6 y nuevamente se dej6 seducir
por la tristeza enjaulada de una lora
locuaz que adquiri6 sin titubeos.
Asi empez6 la cosa. . Luego,
durante un viaje a Lima, vio a Cy
que platicaba con un indigena y

vencer al indio que se lo vendiese.

que irme a trabajar...".
Cuando la Subjefe de Enfermeras,
Clark va de compras, usualmente se
hace acompafiar por un papagayo
enano que compr6 en Chiva-Chiva.
Esta cspecie es muy rara. Tambien
se distingue por su reticencia, pues
de charlatana nada tiene. El papa-
gayo enano de Miss Clark se limit
a pronunciar una frase, "Ja16, Pa-
pa... ". A veces se desboca en una
retahila de palabras, hasta que el
loro lo silencia, "Cillate la boca,
Papa ... !".
El papagayo enano tiene otra
peculiaridad de carActer: es muy ce-
loso. Si su ama sale de compras y
olvida llevarlo, se pone furioso y
empieza a arrancarse las plumas de
su vistosa cola.
El papagayo colilargo, gualdiazul,
era un reci4n nacido enfermizo cuan-
do Miss Clark lo adoptO. Cuid6 de
