The Mailman

Ain't Always

A Male Man
The postman is not always a man.
Sometimes he is a lady.
Mrs. Iris D. Richmond, who holds
the position of Finance Branch Super-
intendent at the Coco Solo Branch
Post Office, is the one woman em-
ployee in the Postal Division at
present to have this title.
As boss of the postal operation at
Coco Solo, she is in charge of one of
the 12 branch post offices maintained
by the Postal Division in the Canal
Zone. The two main Post Offices at
Cristobal and Balboa are under the
direction of postmasters.
A second generation employee,
Mrs. Richmond was born in Gulfport,
Miss., and came to the Isthmus as a
child with her family. Her father
Leon Dedeaux, was employed by the
Pacific locks and the family lived
several years at Pedro Miguel.
She began working with the former
Balboa Quarantine Station in 1941
and joined the Postal Division in
1950. She was promoted to window
and distribution clerk in 1956 and has
been stationed at Cristobal and a
number of the Atlantic side branch
post offices.
She was appointed to her present
position last year and has been at
Gatun as well as the Coco Solo branch

Loyalty Day


Loyalty Day, which calls for re-
affirmation of fidelity to the United
States of America by its citizens, has
been set for May 1 in a proclamation
by President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Calling attention to this important
declaration, Canal Zone Governor
Fleming reminded Canal Zone res-
idents that loyalty demands, as the
proclamation states, "unswerving
devotion to our Nation and its Con-
The document recalls the rise of
the United States of America to its
unequaled position of prosperity and
power, achieved through a costly
struggle. And it states: "Once more
we proclaim our loyalty to the United
States, our determination to preserve
freedom, justice, equality and human
dignity . and our resolution to
assure those blessings for all those
who yearn to be free."
The President calls upon appro-
priate officials of the government to
display the flag of the United States
on all Government buildings on that
day as a manifestation of loyalty
"to the Nation which that flag

A rehearsal scene from the Theatre Guild production, The Ballad of the Sad
Cafe, by Edward Albee, which is to open April 23. Pictured are the young
director, Gaylord Mowrey, well known on the Isthmus for his acting and mu-
sical talents; Nannette Rickert, recently seen in The Boy Friend, who plays
the 6-foot tall lead, Miss Amelia; and Loring White, also well known locally,
who is cast as the hunchback. Tickets will go on sale April 13, and may be

Keys to the Locks were presented by Governor Fleming (left) to Mr. and
Mrs. T. E. Burrow on the eve of their departure for the United States, where
they are to make their home. Burrow, who resigned as Assistant Chief,
Executive Planning Staff, received a certificate with his Key to the Locks
naming him a "Visitor in Perpetuity." Governor Fleming also presented him
a Panama Canal Distinguished Service Award, with a check for $300. The
award was in official recognition and commendation "for his unselfish con-
tribution to the work of the Executive Planning Staff. His thorough under-
standing of operating problems, organization and fiscal set-up has made him
an invaluable asset to the Panama Canal organization for many years. He has
combined perceptive analysis with a patient, kindly, tactful approach to re-
solve difficult situations and remains everybody's friend. Tom Burrow has set
a new high standard for executives at the Panama Canal," the citation read.

Telephone Tips . From Experts

Busy employees can inadvertently
annoy colleagues and clients, espe-
cially when taking incoming phone
calls. To cut down on these irritations
to outsiders, the advice of the Amer-
ican Telephone & Telegraph Co. may
be worth heeding.

Says the AT&T about receiving
phone calls:

Answer promptly-at the first ring
if possible.

Identify yourself-by giving your
own name and the name of your
organization or department. Avoid
the time-wasting, out-of-date "hello."

Remember to speak distinctly,
though it's not necessary to shout.
A loud voice sounds gruff and un-
pleasant on the telephone.
And be friendly-so that the caller
is glad he called. Take advantage of
opportunities for being helpful and
Keep your promises-if you make
promises to call back, follow through.
If you are careful About this, you will
build a reputation for being reliable
and trustworthy.
Let the caller hang up first-it's
courteous to wait for the caller's

With rainy season near, knowing
what to do about a skid can mean
the difference between life and death.
Rain can make a deadly film on a
highway, but the composition of the
highway itself has much to do with
driving at given speeds. Asphaltic
pavements with a hard, sharp, sandy
surface texture, whether wet or dry,
provide good friction for stopping.
Where excess asphalt is used, "bleed-
ing" sometimes results in a slick,
glazed surface that is slippery when
Tests show that when concrete is
wet, traction decreases by 35 to 40
percent. Having tires with good tread
on your car can stop you 20 percent
quicker than worn tires. In a "side
skid," good tires also give better per-
formance because good non-skid
treads act like a squeegee, permitting
the tires to get a better grip on the
pavement. A new set of tires will
throw out a shower of spray as brakes
are applied.
Besides wet streets and highways,
there are other dangers that may
come heavy thundershowers.
Mud may be washed onto a paved
road and make it almost as slippery
as if it were covered with a thin sheen
of new snow. Mud or road oil may
get tracked onto the highway at an
intersection or the entrance of a con-
struction road, for example on Ama-
dor Road during bridge access road
These materials on wet pavement
can change a safe road offering good
traction into a death trap with only
one third as much "stopping power."
Just a little dust on a paved road,
when wet by a heavy fog or fine
drizzle, can produce a greasy, slip-
pery surface. Loose gravel on pave-
ment will roll under tires like so many
ball bearings. Wet leaves also are a
hazard. They are slippery, making it
easy to lock wheels, but once the
wheels are locked, the leaves bunch
up under the tires, proving a "sled
track" for the car to slide on.
In almost all these cases, the mo-
torist can correct his skid by remain-
ing calm and remembering to release
his brakes for an instant, then pump-
ing them gently to regain and keep
steering control.

Here's some data that highlights
the hazard of picking up hitchhikers.
A year-long study on the New Jersey
Turnpike found the following among
hitchhikers: 162 runaways, 98 mil-
itary AWOL's, 7 fugitives from men-
tal institutions, 5 escaped convicts,
and 501 people with criminal finger-
print records.

peso a que asistan a sus reuniones.


He aqul una caja que usaremos para de-
mostrar nuestro punto. Considered el problema
del trabajador que coge una caja que pesa de
15 a 18 kilos para moverla de un sitio a otro.
Lo primero que hace es agacharse y to-
mar la caja firmemente por las esquinas. / Por-
que por las esquinas?, se preguncaran algunos
de Uds. La razon para ello es que de esa ma-
nera se puede colocar una esquina sobre las
rodillas y levantar la caja pegada al cuerpo.
Si la agarra por los lados opuestos, ten-
dria que abrir las piernas demasiado, entonces
el peso quedaria muy retirado de su cuerpo y
tendria que encorvarse para cogerla.
Al comarla asi por las esquinas no tendra
el problema de meter las manos por debajo de
la caja, o de tener que sacarlas al bajar la
Ahora, endereza las rodillas y al subir la
caja se la trae hacia el cuerpo y puede incli-
narse un poco hacia atras de manera que el
peso quede directamente sobre sus pies. Va-
mos a dar una demostracio'n de la diferencia
que existed entire encorvarse y agacharse para
levantar un peso.

de detenerse un vehiculo, no importa
si estan secas o mojadas. Si se utiliza
asfalto en exceso se produce una su-
perficie lisa y pulida que al mojarse
se torna resbaladiza.
Pruebas de laboratorio han demos-
trado que cuando el concrete estA
mojado, la tracci6n disminuye en un
35 o 40 por ciento. Tambien demos-
traron que las llantas con la banda de
rodamiento en buen estado pueden
detener el autom6vil un 20 por ciento

se obtiene mayor seguridad de las

La Coheteria
El Mayor Charles J. McGinn, hijo
del Sr. y la Sra. Thomas M. McGinn,
antiguos residents de Gatan, es uno
de los que contribuyen a la construc-
cion de uno de los mas poderosos
cohetes en el program espacial de
los Estados Unidos.
El Mayor McGinn, ex alumno de
la Escuela Secundaria de Crist6bal,
y graduado de la Academia Militar
de West Point, es miembro del equipo
de la Fuerza Aerea, que es respon-
sable por el program del "TitAn III."
El Mayor McGinn esti ayudando a
desarrollar el sistema impulsor de los
cohetes a usar en vuelos espaciales,
ya sea tripulados o no, en la Divisi6n
Espacial de Sistemas de Comando de
la Fuerza Adrea, en Los Angeles,
Al salir de West Point, como ca-
dete, McGinn nad6 a travis del Canal
en 1950. De acuerdo con los datos
oficiales, fue la quinta persona en
hacerlo para este tiempo.
El Mayor McGinn esti casado con
la que de soltera fue la Srta. Jean
White, hija del Sr. y la Sra. Alton
White, quien recientemente se retir6
de la organizaci6n del Canal. La fa-
milia McGinn cuenta con cinco hijos.
El padre del Mayor McGinn trabaj6
antiguamente con la Divisi6n de
Esclusas en Gattin.

su agarre a la carretera. Un juego
nuevo de neumaticos producirAn un
chorro de agua al aplicarse los frenos.
AdemAs de las carreteras y caminos
mojados al caer lluvias torrenciales
'tambi6n existen otros peligros.
El lodo puede inundar una carre-
tera, lo que hace que est6 casi tan
resbalosa como si tuviera una delgada
capa de nieve fresca. Tambidn puede
acumularse lodo o aceite en una in-
tersecci6n o entrada de un camino de
construcci6n, por ejemplo, en la Ca-
rretera Amador durante la construc-
ci6n de un camino de acceso a la
construcci6n del Puente Thatcher.
Estas sustancias sobre pavimento
mojado pueden convertir una carre-
tera relativamente segura en una
trampa de muerte, reducida a un
tercio la tracci6n sobre ella.
Con s6lo una pequefia cantidad de
polvo sobre el pavimento, al ser hu-
medecidos por niebla o llovizna, se
produce una superficie peligrosamen-
te resbalosa. Gravilla esparcida sobre
el pavimento se convierte en una es-
pecie de balinera bajo el neumAtico.
Las hojas mojadas produce casi el
mismo efecto, pero al acumularse de-
lante de las llantas se convierten en
un deslizador para el autom6vil.
En todos estos casos, el automovi-
lista puede corregir su patinazo per-
maneciendo en calma y aplicando los
frenos intermitentemente hasta reasu-
mir el dominio del vehiculo.
