Water Use

Is Urged
Go easy on the water this weekend.
The Maintenance Division has
urged Pacific area residents of the
Canal Zone and Panama to curtail
such unnecessary activities as water-
ing the lawn, washing cars, and fill-
ing swimming pools Saturday and
Sunday because of the closing of
the 30-inch water main feeding the
Balboa Pump Station.
The big supply main must be
shut down so that Panama Canal
Maintenance Division forces can
install valves and fittings in prepara-
tion for the installation of a new
30-inch main extending from the
Los Rios Pump Station to the Balboa
Pump Station.
The work will be completed
Saturday but water still will be in
short supply Sunday while the
Pacific side reservoirs are being filled
to their regular levels prior to the
normal heavy weekday consumption.
If care is taken, there will be ample
water, however, for normal sanitary
and domestic purposes as well as for
fire protection, the Maintenance
Division announced.
The work of installing the new
water main was started in October by
the Panama contracting firm of Com-
pafiia Pan Caribe which entered a
low bid of $254,999 on the project.
The new water main will increase
the available supply of water to the
Balboa pump station from 24 to 30
million gallons a day, will allow the
Panama Canal to pump the ultimate
capacity of the Miraflores Filtration
Plant, and make 30 million gallons
a day available to Panama City.
The work should be completed
within 6 months.

Beginning drivers in Virginia must
appear in court, accompanied by
parents or guardians. to receive their
licenses. The judge conducts a formal
ceremony to impress the novices with
the fact that a driver license is a
privilege, not a right.


New Malaria Cases at Record Low

Another record was established in
1965 with only 2 new malaria cases,
or 0.1 cases per thousand, occurring
in Panama Canal organization em-
ployees, despite an increase in the
total number of new malaria cases
reported to the Health Bureau during
the year.
Health Director Col. Roosevelt
Cafarelli noted that previous lows
of malaria cases had been reported

in 1964, with only three employees
down with malaria the entire year
or 0.2 cases per thousand employees,
and in 1963, with six cases for a
rate of 0.4 per thousand.
Nearly 30 new malaria cases were
recorded for 1965 with the majority,
17, occurring in individuals living
outside the Canal Zone. Six of seven-
teen were dependents of Canal Zone
employees who live outside the Zone,

while the rest of the cases were
others who utilized Canal Zone
facilities for treatment. Military units
provided nine new malaria cases
which were contracted either outside
the Zone or on maneuvers in un-
sanitated jungle areas.
Of the two employee cases, one
U.S. citizen was a new malaria case
in August at Gamboa. Follow-up

of local orchids presented to the Canal Zone Library-Museum by the president of the Canal Zone Orchid Society,
Comdr. R. F. Vales, USN, and Mrs. E. F. Hufstedler, secretary of the orchid society. The water colors were done
by a former Canal Zone resident, the late Mrs. Mollie A. Purdom.

191 Water Colors of Orchids

Presented to Library-Museum

The Canal Zone Orchid Society of
Balboa has presented 191 water
colors of local orchids to the Canal
Zone Library-Museum. The water
colors are the work of the late Mrs.
Mollie A. Purdom, who was a well-
known artist in New Orleans before

Believe It or Not

In spite of numerous (too numerous) remarks by friends (and former
friends), the dry season DID start-officially-December 25.
There are some who have regarded rainfall in some areas daily since
then as indicating the dry season hadn't started, in spite of an official
announcement that it had. These amateur opinions arc regarded in
moderately high official circles as being without merit.
Localized showers," even though they have amounted to as much as
.94 inch of rain (at Balboa Heights January 2) don't mean the dry season
hasn't started-any more than similar early "showers" near the end of the
dry season mean the rainy season has started.
Recent rains have not been widespread enough to constitute an extension
of the rainy season.
The last big general rain was December 20. The last rise recorded for
Gatun Lake was December 24-25, to 87.50 feet, and its level has been
dropping steadily, although slowly, since then. Early this week the level
was at 87.01.
Rainfall the-first 4 days of January at Balboa Heights totaled 1.31 inches-
.17 inch above the 57-year average for the entire month. But this, localized,
didn't have any effect on the Catun Lake water supply.
But at one of the key stations on water supply, at the headwaters of
the Chagres River, there has been no rain at all since December 25.
Gatun hydroelectric station is on dry season basis, and water conservation
steps have been directed by a Marine Bureau memorandum. These include
maximum use of the short chambers at Catun and Pedro Miguel Locks,
and as necessary at Miraflores Locks when necessary to conserve water in
Miraflores Lake, and maximum tandem lockage operation.
So, it IS dry season, has been for nearly 3 weeks, and will be for possibly
another 31/2 months-or more (or less). If you don't agree, talk it over with
a fuzzy caterpillar. He knows (that's how we found out).

coming to the Canal Zone. Mrs.
Purdom, who painted these orchid
studies in 1927-28, organized the
Canal Zone Orchid Society in 1934
and became its first president.
In 1933 Mrs. Purdom was awarded
First Class Certificate of Merit at an
International Tropical Flower Show
at Miami Beach for her "Interesting
Orchid Specimens.
The collection of water colors will
be stored in the air-conditioned rare
book vault in the Library-Museum
for safekeeping. Interested persons
may make arrangements to study
them by making an appointment with
the reference librarian. Special dis-
plays of the water colors are being
planned, and dates for the displays
will be announced.

Want Leave


Apply Early
The early bird may get the worm.
The worm in this case being a pre-
ferred mode of travel on home leave.
The Transportation Branch has
reminded employees planning to take
home leave during the summer rush
season that if they apply early
enough, they may have a good
chance to travel to and from the
United States by air if they so prefer.
Although free home leave for
Canal organization employees will
continue to be governed by the
general policy that travel to and
from the United States will be on
the Panama Canal SS Cristobal,
those employees who submit their
leave requests at least 4 months
in advance or as early as possible
before the date of departure will
have more chance of getting their
preferred mode of travel.
Certain ship sailings between the
months of May and September are
booked solid with employees and
their families who want to take leave
in the United States during the warm
summer months.
The policy is to assign space on
the ships in order that leave requests
are received but that preference will
be given to those who indicate that
they wish to travel by ship. Of those
traveling by ship, preference will
be given those with families and
children on the so-called "family
preference" sailings from the Canal
Zone in May, June, and early July
and from New Orleans in July,
August, and early September.
If the ship accommodations are
filled by those who prefer ship travel,
those others who want to travel by
air will be provided transportation
by commercial airline either to or
from the United States or both.
Those who make last minute appli-
cations for air reservations for home
leave, however, may be asked to
reschedule their leave or to accept
SS Cristobal accommodations result-
ing from late cancellations.
There will be no change in the
existing policies whereby air travel
may be authorized for home-leave
travel in certain circumstances; and
whereby home leave may be taken
before the employee's normal eligi-
bility date, when required for coordi-
nation of leave schedules with ship

Policy Change Effective Feb. I

On Hospital Charges Payments

The Panama Canal organization
has announced a change in policy
regarding payment of charges at
Gorgas and Coco Solo Hospitals
affecting.both civilian employees of
the Armed Forces and their depen-
dents and PanCanal employees and
their dependents.
Beginning February 1, they will
be required to pay their bill at the
time of treatment, whenever possible.
Cash payment for purchases of med-
icine also will be required. The same
cash policy change also applies to
all personnel of all other U.S.
Government agencies.
When cash payment is not pos-
sible, an authorization for payroll de-
duction-if payroll deduction author-
ity exists-must be signed at the time
of treatment by the employee or
eligible dependent. Eligibility must
always be established by providing
proper identification.

Col. John H. Van Voorhis, president, Canal Zone Chapter, Federal Bar Association, and Staff Judge Advocate,
U.S. Air Forces Southern Command, Albrook AFB, presents a copy of the book "Equal Justice Under Law-The
Supreme Court in American Life" to Joseph P. Kane, Canal Zone College librarian, in the presence of Dr. Donald
W. Skinner (right), Dean of the College. The book, published by the Federal Bar Association in cooperation
with the National Geographic Society, is an illustrated history of the U.S. Supreme Court. Colonel Van Voorhis,
at the suggestion of the Canal Zone College, has appointed a committee of civilian and military attorneys to
counsel students interested in a course of study leading to a law degree. Referral to a member of this committee
is to be accomplished through the Canal Zone College counseling service.


By Eleanor Burnham

In Equal Justice Under the Law,
the Foundation of the Federal Bar
Association, in cooperation with the
National Geographic Society, has
produced a beautifully illustrated
and fascinating history of what prob-
ably is America's least known and
most august body-the Supreme
Court of the United States. Through

Zke PJittle Woman

Many wives should try to learn more about safety-
not only for what it can mean to the entire family, but
to gain a complete understanding of what a safety
program means to the life and limb of her man while
he's at work.
Such an understanding can have an important bearing
on the attitude of the husband toward accident preven-
tion. Management has recognized this fact in many
instances and forward-looking companies often have
safety publications mailed to the man at home, so that
the family can be enlightened.
Aside from the desirability of building such positive
attitudes about safety in the home, it is urgent that wives
be aware of their contribution to the frame of mind
their husbands take along to the workplace each
If wifey chooses breakfast time to air all her grievances

of the previous day; to complain about that bully in the
next block who's been picking on Junior again, or about
Susie's unwillingness to help with the dishes and keep
her room cleaned up; to whine about her sorry lot
because he can't afford to buy that new dress she wants-
if all these worries are piled on top of his natural,
healthy concern for his job-then you can color him as
an accident looking for a place to happen.
By contrast, take a look at that lucky guy who enjoys
a good breakfast and homey chatter about pleasant
family affairs, who gets a warmn kiss and a cheerful
"goodbye" as he takes off for work. Can't complain
about his frame of mind, can you?
There are some wives who couldn't care less about
safety programs.
Widows know better.

of stately pictures and layman's lan-
guage, the history of the Court's
famous decisions, its daily procedure,
and something of the personalities of
its justices are presented in a highly
readable way. Copies of this book
are available in all Canal Zone
libraries. They were purchased as of
general interest on recommendation
of members of the Canal Zone Bar.
The Marriage of Katherine is a
new novel by D. E. Stevenson which
traces two of the author's best loved
characters, Katherine Wentworth and
Alec MacLaren, from their honey-
moon and through dramatic events
of their early married life. The story
is set in Scotland and England and is
a romantic sequel to the popular
Katherine Wentworth. Miss Steven-
son's characters, as usual, are plau-
sible, warm and reliable. Reading
about the involvement of these
normal people in average activities
provides a pleasant change from
stories of the tortured characters so
common in modem fiction.
Mission With LeMay, the auto-
biography of Gen. Curtis E. LeMay,
is the personal story of a distin-
guished general told with the skill of
a professional writer-MacKinlay

flying enthusiasts for its account of
the development of military aviation
and will be read with sympathy by
anyone who enjoys a well-written
story about a dedicated public
Arthur Schlesinger's A Thousand
Days is considered by many people
to be the definitive work on the Ken-
nedy years in the White House. This
is not surprising. It is rare indeed
when a first-class historian has imme-

This book is informative and immen-
sely readable.

"Barriers" Needed

To Cut Telephone

Calls Volume?
An investigation conducted in the
offices of an insurance company has
revealed that every day employees
in the upper echelons of the admin-
istration are called 30 to 60 times
to the telephone between 10 and 12
a.m. and between 3 and 4:30 in the
In the routine administrative offi-
ces the number of telephone calls
was not much less.
Analysts have come to the con-
clusion that unless ultimately tele-
phone "barriers" are set up in the
offices of industry and administration
no intensive work will be possible.
It was also pointed out that the
telephone is detrimental to one's
health because it forces the speaker
to concentrate within a matter of
seconds on things which often have
no immediate relation with the work
on hand. When a person returns to
his own work then he has to force
himself to get back into the old

CZC Instructor's Article Cites

New Business Teaching Methods

"The Resurgency of Business Edu-
cation," appearing in the December
1965, issue of "The Journal of Busi-
ness Education," is the title of an
article written by Irvin H. Lesser, of
the Business Education Department
of the Canal Zone College.
The context exemplifies the need
for modern teaching methods, util-
izing in the classroom such media as
closed-circuit television, along with
a television camera, and the uses of
the overhead projector.
The article points up experiments
in the classroom with the use of tele-
vision as an instructional instru-
ment-not in a large group, but in a
single classroom. For example, in
one experiment a camera was focused
on the instructor's keyboard during a
typewriting class while the students
imitated the instructor's stroking of
the keys. Then, each student used
the typewriter at the teacher's desk
with the television camera focused
on his hands. Stroking faults were
magnified on the screen. By the use
of this kind of observation, the

stroking techniques of every student
were noted.
Learning took place in half the
time it ordinarily took to learn good
techniques of stroking. Experiments
on techniques also were made in
typewriting and shorthand classes
with use of the overhead projector.
Whole programs were developed
involving the overhead projector.
As pointed out, these studies and
experiments are only a few that have
been done to swing the pendulum
back to research in business educa-
tion. Education, Lesser advocates, is
a constant experiment. And only in
this way are sound education proce-
dures developed.
Lesser arrived in the Canal Zone
in September 1964, on a leave of
absence from the University of
Miami in Coral Gables, Fla. This is
his fourth article to be published in
"The Journal of Business Education."

chines, typewriting, and shorthand

Se Establecid Nueva Marca

En 1965 con Solo Dos Casos

De Malaria Entre Empleados

En 1965 se estableci6 otro record,
al ocurrir s6lo dos casos de malaria,
o 0.1 por mil, entire los empleados
del Canal de PanamA, a pesar de
que el n6mero de casos de malaria
encontrados por la Direcci6n de
Salubridad durante el afio, ha au-
El Coronel Roosevelt Caffarelli,
Director de Salubridad, sefial6 que
las anteriores marcas bajas en mala-
ria se habian obtenido en 1964, con
tres empleados enfermos durante el
afio, o sea 0.2 por mil y, en 1963,
cuando ocurrieron seis casos, para
una proporci6n de 0.4 por mil.
Casi 30 nuevos casos de malaria
fueron reportados durante 1965, la
mayor part de ellos, 17, de personas
que resident fuera de la Zona del
Canal. Seis de los diecisiete eran pa-
rientes de empleados que viven fuera
de la Zona del Canal, mientras que
el resto de los casos fueron de per-
sonas que utilizaron las instalaciones
de la Zona para tratamiento. Unida-
des militares proporcionaron nueve
casos nuevos de malaria, que fue
contraida fuera del Area, o durante
maniobras en regions no saneadas
de la selva.
De los dos casos de empleados,
, uno fue un ciudadano de Estados
f Unidos, que fue reportado en agosto
en Gamboa. Un estudioP- sterior de

contagio fue un parent4 qie vivia

intermediario fue urn '*rai boquete

Sin embargo, la posibilidad de
otros casos en Gamboa fue eliminada
por la Divisi6n de Sanidad, mediante
la intensificaci6n del riegue de insec-
ticidas residuales en los patios de
debajo de las casas y una mayor fu-
migaci6n por medio de neblina de
insecticide. El otro caso de empleado
con malaria tambien provino de
Gamboa, pero el contagio fue loca-
lizado fuera de la Zona del Canal
cerca del Rio Chagres, donde el
paciente vivi6 en una reconocida
Area malArica.

En 1964, se reportaron a la Di-
recci6n de Salubridad 18 casos nue-
vos de malaria. En 1963 se anotaron
22 casos, mientras que hubo 86 en
1962. En ese afio, marzo y julio fue-
ron los meses con mas casos, 21 y
19, respectivamente. El afio pasado,
junior fue el que tuvo mis casos,
habi6ndose reportado nueve.
La Division de Sanidad lucha por
eliminar los focos de reproducci6n
de los mosquitos en 50 millas cua-
dradas de Areas saneadas alrededor
de las poblaciones de la Zona del
Canal, mediante la limpieza de las
zanjas y eliminando las larvas, esta
fltima, una operaci6n diaria durante
la estaci6n lluviosa, lo mismo que
regando insecticides residuales en
120 habitaciones localizadas en
areas selvAticas de la Zona. Sin em-
bargo, el ambiente de las Areas tro-
picales seguirA siendo productor de
mosquitos, portadores de enfermeda-
des y sumamente molestosos. Se le
aconseja a los habitantes que conti-
nuen practicando medidas de con-
trol individual en viajes al campo,
excursions de pesca y aimn, en even-
tos sociales que tengan lugar de
noche, al aire libre. Estas medidas
incluyen el uso de repelentes de
insects, vestidos protectors adecua-
dos, y el uso de insecticides vapori-
zados que se pueden conseguir en
los almacenes.
Informes periodisticos recientes
indican que los paises latinoamerica-
nos completaran dentro de poco la
erradicaci6n de la malaria, tarea int-
ciada por el Coronel William C.
Gorgas, hace 62 afios, en La Haba-
na y la Zona del Canal. Debido al
ambient tropical, sin embargo, se
necesitarA vigilar continuamente todo
nuevo caso, para romper el ciclo de
transmisi6n del parAsito por medio
del tratamiento efectivo del paciente,
antes de que los mosquitos locales
sean infectados.
El bajo record de casos nuevos de
malaria dentro de la Zona del Canal,
indica que esta tecnica es el factor
exitoso de la vigilancia del Coronel
Gorgas, que sigui6 a su program
initial de erradicaci6n de la malaria.

A pesar de las numerosas (muy numerosas) observaciones hechas por
amigos (y ex amigos), la estaci6n seca COMENZO-oficialmente-el 25 de
Hay algunos que han advertido que ha llovido diariamente en algunas
areas desde entonces, como indicaci6n de que la estaci6n seca no ha
comenzado, a pesar de un anuncio official de que se habia iniciado. Estas
opinions aficionadas son consideradas en altos circulos oficiales como sin
Aguaceros locales, aunque han llegado hasta .94 pulgadas de lluvia
(en Balboa Heights el 2 de enero) no significa que la estaci6n seca no haya
comenzado-asi como tampoco que tempranas lluvias cerca del final de la
estaci6n seca signifiquen que la estaci6n lluviosa ha comenzado.
Las recientes lluvias no se han diseminado lo suficiente para constituir
una extension de la estaci6n lluviosa.
La iltima gran lluvia general se registry el 20 de diciembre. La 61tima
elevaci6n registrada para el Lago Gat6n fue del 24 al 25 de diciembre,
a 87.50 pies, y su nivel ha estado bajando regulannente, aunque lentamente,
desde entonces. A comienzos de esta semana el nivel era de 87.01.
La precipitaci6n Iluviosa durante los primeros 4 dias de enero en Balboa
Heights, ascendi6 a. 1.31 pulgadas-.17 pulgadas sobre el promedio de
57 afios para el mes complete. Pero estas lluvias no han tenido ningln
efecto en el suministro de agua del Lago Gat6n.
Pero en una de las estaciones principals en suministro de agua, ep la
- cabecera del Rio Chagres, no ha llovido desde el 25 de diciembre.
La estaci6n hidroeldctrica de Gatiin estA a base de la estaci6n seca, y

necesario en las Esclusas de Miraflores cuando haya necesidad de conservar
agua en el Lago Miraflores, y para una operaci6n mAxima de tandem en
las esclusas.
Asi es que la estaci6n seca lleg6 hace casi 3 semanas, y estarA aqui
posiblemente por otros 3 meses y medio-o mas (o menos). Si usted no estA
de acuerdo, discitalo con una oruga. Ella sabe (asi fue como lo averiguamos).

inmediatamente. Deben emplearse bandejas para recoger las
goteras de aceite donde haya fugas.
Almacenamiento de materials:
(a) Apile s6lo hasta alturas seguras.
(b) Cuente con una base firme para empezar evitando asi que la pila
se tuerza.
(c) Asegure el material entire si trabindolo o usando materials que
sirvan para este fin.
(d) Conserve despejado el espacio destinado para pasillos.

EXPLORANDO EL ESPACIO.-Estudiantes de ciencias de la Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso hicieron recien-
temente una gira con explicaciones a la exposici6n que sobre el progress espacial de los Estados Unidos estA

ci6n estA abierta al p6blico y durarA hasta fines de enero. Las leyendas estan en ingl6s y castellano.

Cambios en el Sistema de Pago

Por Tratamiento en Hospitales

La organizaci6n del Canal de Pa-
nama ha anunciado un cambio en la
political relacionada con el pago de
cargos en los hospitals Gorgas y
Coco Solo, que afectan tanto a los
empleados civiles de las Fuerzas
Armadas y sus dependientes, como
a los empleados del Canal de PanamA
y sus dependientes.
A partir del 19 de febrero, se les
requerirA pagar su cuenta al tiempo
que reciban tratamiento, cuando sea
possible. El pago al contado por la
compra de medicines tambien sera
requerido. Esta misma political de
pago al contado se aplica tambi6n
a todo el personal de todas las otras
agencies del Gobierno de los Estados
Cuando el pago en efectivo no sea
possible, una autorizaci6n para deduc-
ci6n de planilla-si existe la autoridad
para deducci6n de planilla-debera
ser finnada al tiempo del tratamiento
por el empleado o el dependiente
eligible. La elegibilidad debe ser es-
tablecida siempre, proporcionando la
debida identificaci6n.
Para el personal military y sus de-
pendientes no hay cambio en el pro-
cedimiento existente. Los pagos en
efectivo son requeridos solamente
como se hacia anteriormente.
Cuando otras personas (como cria-
das) son enviadas a las instalaciones
de la Direcci6n de Salubridad de la
Zona del Canal por personal de las
Fuerzas Armadas o sus dependientes,
o por empleados civiles de las Fuer-
zas Armadas o sus dependientes, el
pago en efectivo serA tambi6n reque-
rido a la persona que envia, al tiempo
del tratamriento. En todos los casos,

"El hecho de que haya encerado los pisos
no significa que debas usar CLAVOSI"

se requerira prueba del envio por la
autoridad apropiada.
Esta nueva political ha sido ini-
ciada en un movimiento tendiente a
lograr mayor eficiencia y simplifica-
ci6n del trabajo en los hospitals y
clinics de la Zona del Canal.
