Medicare


Plans Don't


Apply Here
Medicare, the two health insurance
plans for people over 65, established
under the 1965 Amendments to the
Social Security Act, effective July 1,
1966, definitely does not apply to
persons in the Canal Zone.
Medicare applies in the United
States, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands,
Guam, and American Samoa. The
law states that certain hospital service
may be provided in border areas of
the United States only if the hospital
in question was closer than one in
the United States and the individual
was physically present in the United
States when the emergency occurred.
Border areas referred to are areas
along the Mexican and Canadian
border and do not include the Canal
Zone.
Medicare covers all persons, 65 or
over, eligible for social security or
railroad retirement benefits, whether
they are actually receiving benefits
or if benefits are not being paid them
because they are working; and all
persons who are not insured under
social security or railroad retirement
who are now 65 or who will reach
65 before 1968, including Federal
employee retirees who are not
covered under the Federal Em-
ployees Health Benefits Act of 1959.
Medicare does not apply to Fed-
eral employees who are covered
under the provisions of the Federal
Employees Health Benefits of 1959,
or who were covered on February 16,
1965, or who, if they retired after
February 15, 1965, could have been
covered under the program.

Veterans
Preference

Extended
Public Law 89-358 signed by the
President, March 3, has extended
5-point Veteran's Preference to all
persons who served on active duty
in any branch of the Armed Forces
for a period of more than 180 con-
secutive days after January 31, 1955;
who have been separated under
honorable conditions; and whose
service was not as a 6-month reservist
or guardsman.
Panama Canal organization em-
ployees who are eligible to claim
preference under this recent legisla-
tion should present their discharge
papers in person or mail them to the
chief, Personnel Records-Administra-
tive Branch, Ancon, Building 366,
Box 2012, Balboa Heights, or to the
Cristobal Personnel Office, Adminis-
tration Building, Box 5051, Cristobal.
After the documents have been
recorded in the official personnel
folders they will be returned to the
employees.


Notre Dame Club

Banquet Monday
The Notre Dame Club of Panama-
Canal Zone will observe "Universal
Night" Monday with a banquet at
the Union Club in Panama City.
The second Monday after Easter
is set aside each year as the night for
all former Notre Dame students to
get together, renewing acquaintances
throughout the world.
The "Universal Night" social hour
will commence at 7:30 p.m.
Reservations may be made by
telephoning Eduardo Dominguez,
Panama 5-4281, or Raymond P.

Stohrer) of Coco Solo; Wilma Moore (Mrs. Ronald E. Moore) of Margarita;
Judy Thompson (Mrs. B. K. Thompson) of Balboa; and Cecelia Gove
(Mrs. Thomas W. Gove) of Coco Solo. The PanCanettes will appear in
Clearwater tonight in competition with eight other quartettes. Should they
win first or second place, they will participate in the International Sweet
Adelines competition in Houston, Tex., in October. About 500 singers are
attending the weeklong convention of Region 9, Sweet Adelines, Inc., in
Clearwater. This is the first time this particular quartette is competing, but
all except Mrs. Thompson have appeared in past PanCanettes' programs.


Library Week
Observance
April 17-23
All Canal Zone Libraries will
celebrate National Library Week
Sunday, April 17, through Saturday,
April 23. This is the ninth time that
National Library Week has been
celebrated by libraries in the United
States, the Canal Zone, and in
Panama.
Each year there are official posters,
streamers, bookmarks, and other
items prepared by the National Book
Committee, Inc., in cooperation with
the American Library Association.
All of the 1966 promotional materials
include this year's slogan: "Know
what you're talking about. Read."
All Canal Zone Libraries will
make extensive use of these posters,
streamers, and bookmarks and of the
1966 slogan. In addition several of
the libraries will provide special
exhibits or programs.

Four pages of the spring edition of
Imperial Oil Fleet News, published
in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, are
devoted to an illustrated article on
the Panama Canal. Captioned "Pan-
ama: the Canal that couldn't be
built," the article is subtitled,
"A man stood up in Panama and the
mountains stood aside." Several con-
struction days photos plus a picture
of an Imperial ship passing through
Gaillard Cut accompany the text.


Rainy Season

Due April 26

... or May 9
When will rainy season start?
April 26, if it follows the pattern
of average starting dates.
But not until May 9 if the current
dry season follows the average of
135 days. The dry season started
December 25.
Rainy season started late in April
in 1963 and 1964, not until near
mid-May in 1961, 1962, and 1965.
In spite of all the cloudiness at
times recently, and scattered showers,
during the 2-week period ending
April 9 none of the rains amounted
to even .1 inch, Hidrographic Offi-
ce records show. Heaviest rainfall
during that period was a .09 inch rain
at Gatun March 30.

BROWUSInG

COLLECTIOn
By Eleanor Burnham

Resurrection Man by Thomas
Walsh is a different sort of mystery.
It's about an apparently completely
respectable judge who one night
went out to buy his wife a gift and
never returned. Eighteen years later
he reappeared, or at least a person
showed up who claimed to be the
judge-and seemed to have the facts
to prove it. Walsh is a professional
mystery writer with many successful
stories to his credit.


Triple honors were bestowed on Eric S. Oakley, assistant manager, Balboa
Housewares Store, when he was presented a quality step increase award
recently. The quality increase was given to Oakley in recognition of the
exceptional performance of his duties in dealing with the demands of
customers of the store. Oakley also was cited for his valuable participation
in the Pedro Miguel-Paraiso Civic Council community activities. At the
same time, a job study of his position resulted in a promotion. From left,
T. G. Relihan, general manager, Supply Division, presents the award to
Oakley as N. B. Davidson, superintendent, Marketing Branch, smiles
approval.
Below, Relihan presents a quality step increase certificate to J. L. Snyder,
Merchandising Management Officer, for his exceptional diligence to duties,
especially in the special skill exercised in the implementation of electronic
data processing systems procedures in the changeover to direct purchasing
program. J. F. Manning, assistant general manager, Supply Division, is
at right.


Everybody Duck, or Family Plan
to Buenos Aires is the story of the
trek of the Hamilton family in a
12-ton amphibious duck from Hunt-
ington, Long Island, starting late in
1958 to Buenos Aires where they
arrived more than a year later. Mrs.
Hamilton (Virginia to many people
in the Canal Zone) wrote the book in
collaboration with Virginia Taylor
Close who managed to get many
homely and amusing details into
what is really a first-rate travel book.
The Last Eagle by Dan Mannix is
the story of an American bald eagle.
The book is part fiction and part plea
that this fast-disappearing U.S.
symbol be preserved. It is also a
warmhearted account of the life of
an eagle from its fledgling days to
its maturity when it took its place
among the king of birds.

They Found the Buried Cities
by Robert Wauchope is as exciting
as any modern adventure story,
although some of its chapters were
written by archaeologists in Central
America as long as 150 years ago.
Wauchope has chosen these early
works carefully and has added to
their interest by giving brief accounts
of the explorers themselves. John L.
Stephens, George Squier, and Arthur
Morelet are included and the book
is brought up to date by enlightening
chapters by Wauchope himself who
is director of the Middle America
Research Institute at Tulane Uni-
versity and professor of archaeology
there.

G. H. S. Bushnell's Ancient Arts
of the Americas is a carefully docu-
mented and beautifully illustrated
study about pre-Columbian art. In
this book Dr. Bushnell discusses
painting, jewelry, pottery, textiles,
and other media which span a 4,000
year period. Although his areas of
greatest interest appear to be Mexico
and Peru he includes an interesting
chapter on Central America and the
Northern Andes. Dr. Bushnell lived
in Latin America for about 12 years
and later became Curator of the
Cambridge University Museum of
Archaeology and Ethnology.


INITIATION TONIGHT
The Canal Zone College chapter of
Delta Psi Omega, one of the largest
national honorary fraternities for
achievement in the dramatic arts, is
to initiate new members. Candidates
that have pledged for membership
will be received at the Roosevelt
Room, Tivoli Guest House at 6
o'clock this evening.


"Consent" Needed for Medical


Treatment for Minor Children


With U.S. Schools vacation time
near, parents are reminded by Health
Bureau officials that if medical atten-
tion is needed for minor children,
consent of a parent, or a person
authorized to act in place of a parent,
is necessary before treatment can be
given in Health Bureau facilities.
The person other than a parent
may be either a legal guardian
appointed by court order or a tem-
porary custodian acting under a
written authorization provided by a
parent. (A simple, informal note
will do.)
If a minor seeking treatment is
unaccompanied, or in company of
someone who does not have status of
parent, legal guardian, or authorized
custodian, a Health Bureau policy
directive states, proper consent must
be obtained before medical treatment
is provided.
This does not apply where delay
in treatment occasioned by attempts
to obtain a proper consent would
endanger the life or health of the
patient. In such cases, however, the
directive requires that an effort be


made to reach a parent or custodian
by telephone before or after treat-
ment.
The Canal Zone Code defines a
minor as any person under 21 years
of age except a married person
18 years of age or older.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


. . and a Rub a Dub Dub


You have to see it to Blivit and then
you can't be too sure what it is! It's
a strange looking craft, resembling
an oversized tub with a canopy on
top. And it's one of approximately
30 boats that answered the call for
escort boats for the annual Boy Scout
Cayuco Race to be held April 22,
23, and 24.
It was John Ridge, Jr., who, think-
ing a Chinese junk had invaded
Gatun Lake, raised his hand to his
forehead, and in utter dismay,
exclaimed, "I see it but I don't
'Blivit'."
Ridge had more surprises coming.
He learned the boat was manned by
an all female crew-captained by
housewife and boating expert Patsy


PanCanal Employee

At Pan American

Roundtables Meet
Irma V. Pasco, Safety Branch sec-
retary, was one of the five Panama-
nian delegates attending the 10th
Convention of the Alliance of Pan
American Roundtables, celebrating
the 50th anniversary of the Founding
of Pan American Roundtables, at the
St. Anthony Hotel in San Antonio,
Tex., recently.
Roundtable conventions are held
every 2 years to discuss new program
projects to further the aims of the
organization.
Pan American Roundtables, found
in each of the countries in this
hemisphere, are non-political, non-
profit organizations whose aims are
directed to promoting goodwill and
better understanding among the
American nations through culture.
Roundtable delegates exchange cul-
tural information on music, art, paint-
ing, and folklore of their countries.
A new board of directors of the
Alliance was elected at the recent
convention. Mrs. James Cecil Nelson,
of San Antonio, was elected pres-
ident.
Panama, for the first time, holds
a seat on the board of directors. Mrs.
Ester De Boutaud a housewife and
former president of the Panama
roundtable was elected to occupy the
position on the board. She will hold
this position for 2 years.
The convention program included
a visit to an old plantation which
dates back to the early 19th century.
Delegates were also taken to Austin
where they were guests at a tea
hosted by Mrs. John Connally at the
Governor's Mansion.

son, clerk of court, U.S. District
Court, and Maxine Fitzgerald, Gorgas
Hospital nurse. All are "old salts"
who have been active in the cayuco
races for the past 4 years.
The 19-foot Blivit, made of
quarter-inch steel and powered by
a 10 hp., motor, was originally made
by Arnold J. Landreth, for duck
hunting. Later it passed to William
"Red" Nail, who had great plans for
it but never got around to doing any-
thing about those plans. He gave it
to Mrs. Detamore. She knew exactly
what to do with it.
The remainder of the escort fleet
is composed of standard boats of all
sizes and descriptions-inboards, out-
boards, and combinations of both.
The majority of the boats have
accompanied the cayuco racers for
the past 3 years or more.
Each boat assigned a station in-
dicated on the "escort assignment"
keeps a lookout for cayucos in trouble
and is prepared to offer assistance
when needed. All escort boats carry
a megaphone, binoculars, a line for
towing and locking, first aid supplies,
and a water supply for crew and
passengers. It is up to this group of
escorts to make sure the race is "fair
and square" and safe for the boys.
One of the primary duties of the


esccrt group is keeping the cayucos
clear of ships transiting the Canal.
They also keep pleasure craft clear
of the cayucos, not permitting these
craft to pass at high speeds which
could swamp the cayucos. Now and
then it is the duty of the escorts to
disqualify a cayuco-an unpleasant
task for all concerned.
Escort boaters are as enthusiastic
as the boys doing the paddling and
justly proud of their participation in
the yearly cayuco race. They con-
sider it an honor to help about 200
boys race across the Panama Canal.
As in previous years, the Atlantic
side boaters will escort the cayucos
from the Cristobal Yacht Club to
Gatun Locks. This year H. J. "Jim"
Million will lead off from Catun
through the "Banana Channel" to
Barro Colorado Island to Gamboa.
Wes Townsend and his Pachanga
will be moving along with the pad-
dling boys as he has done since the
very first cayuco race in 1954.
The newer boats such as the Old
Man, Argonaut, Mahi Mahi, Evelyn,
Lois E., Chiquita, El Gejay, Puna-
hele, Cherokee, and Little Bill will be
in the lineup as usual. And, of course,
the Blivit and her crew promising to
show some real boating and escort
duty,.

Marking the completion of 19 months of intensive training, Capt. M. J.
Prince, Panama Canal Marine Director presents Capt. John Waters, another
new Panama Canal pilot, his unlimited pilot's license showing that he is
now qualified to pilot any vessel of any tonnage upon all Canal Zone waters.
The certificate was presented in the office of Captain Prince in the presence
of Mrs. Waters. A native of New York, Captain Waters attended the Mer-
chant Marine Academy at Kings Point for a year before he joined the
United Fruit Co. in 1943 when its ships were under the War Shipping
Administration. He was a tugboat master in New York and served as a
relief mate on Panama Line ships until 1956 when he joined the Canal
organization as a tugboat master in the Dredging Division. He was made
pilot-in-training in 1964.

Gorgas Pharmacy

Will Go on New

Schedule May 1

Starting May 1 the Corgas Hos-
pital Pharmacy will be open only
Monday through Fridays, from 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. The pharmacy will be
closed Saturdays, Sundays, and holi-
days.
Pharmacists are always on call for
emergencies. In addition, drugs are
available in the Emergency Room for
emergency purposes.
Patients who need prescriptions
refilled should plan to do so on week-
days (Monday through Friday). Pre-
scriptions cannot be refilled in the
Emergency Room. Patients who
come to Gorgas Hospital for treat-
ment on weekdays can have their
prescriptions filled while in the hos-
pital with minimal waiting.
Cooperation of all patients will be
appreciated in their observation of
the new hours. By their willingness
to accept this schedule, it becomes
possible for the pharmacy to give
patients not only the best but the
fastest prescription service ever
furnished.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


April 15, 1966


Framed in the archway of the Miraflores Locks control house is the new
Norwegian American Line cruise ship "Sagafjord" making her first transit
of the Panama Canal following a winter cruise around the world. With
several hundred passengers aboard, the ship docked in Cristobal and sailed
the following day for New York.



Girls State-Civic Council Queries


(Continued from p. 1)

if Gamboa could get a 2-way bridge
instead of the 1-way span it has had
for 16 years. Governor Fleming said
that because of the cost and limited
traffic on the bridge such a project
is not in the realm of possibility.
Capt. Howard Buehler, president
of the Pacific Civic Council, asked
if there was any truth to talk that
Canal Zone College is returning to a
2-year institution. Governor Fleming
said the college was never intended
to be a full 3-year college, but rather
a junior college where 3-year courses
are offered.
Both Governor Fleming and Cap-
tain Buehler said many colleges in
the United States require 2 years of
residence or attendance at these
schools before granting bachelor
degrees. Colonel Parfitt said prudent
students at the Canal Zone College
who are contemplating studying for
degrees at U.S.-colleges should first
find out what third year courses here
are accepted at the U.S. colleges of
their choice.
In answers to questions raised
earlier by members of the Civic
Councils, Colonel Parfitt said:
The district dentist at Gamboa has
agreed to a 1 month trial of 1-day-
per-week service commencing April 5
under an arrangement that will be
continued as long as the workload
shows there is a need for it;
The Gamboa Civic Council's
request for a change in the regula-
tion requiring employees working in
Gamboa to live there has been
thoroughly reviewed and, as in the
past, it is considered in the best
interest of the Canal organization to
make no change in this regard;
The question of shopper bus serv-
ice for Gatun and Margarita is being
investigated and a report will be sub-
mitted at the next meeting. Governor
Fleming said that a charge would
have to be made for this service;

Bureau is studying the question of
the current 15 m.p.h. speed limit on
Gamboa Bridge which residents of
that area want raised;
Also, a study of the school hours
will be made by the Schools Divi-
sion and a report submitted in the
near future. This was in answer to a
inquiry about changing school hours
to 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a small
break at 11 a.m. instead of the longer
lunch hour.

Medellin Orchid Show

Extends Invitation


Local orchid growers and fanciers
have been invited to attend the
famed orchid show in Medellin,
Colombia, May 5, 6, and 7.
Dr. V. F. Goerger, president of the
Canal Zone Orchid Society, received
a letter of invitation recently from
Mrs. Helena Baraya de Ospina, pres-
ident of the Sociedad Colombiana
de Orquidcologia of Medellin.
Members of the Canal Zone Orchid
Society and others interested in going
to the show in Medellin should con-
tact Mrs. Turner at the Jewis Wel-
fare Board for reservations.


Nursery Planned

Representatives of social, religious,
and cultural clubs operating in the
community, along with the Social
Service Staff-Latin American Com-
munities, have completed plans for
the establishment of a Child Nursery
in Rainbow City.
Children between the ages of 3
and 5 will be eligible for enrollment.
The nursery will operate from 9
a.m. to 3:30 p.m., 5 days a week.
A monthly fee of $5 will include a
complete, well-balanced lunch each
day. For parents desiring transporta-
tion for their children an additional
$1 will be charged.


Dredging Division

Bids Farewell


To Student Aids

At a party at Dredging Division
headquarters at Gamboa, the Dredg-
ing Division bid farewell to three of
Panama's future engineers. The three,
Martin Isaac, Juan Yinh, and Jose
Tufi6n, were assigned as student en-
gineers to the division under the
student assistant program which
started February 21 and ended
April 9.

During their assignment to the
division the students were given an
insight into the operation of the
multimillion dollar dredging organi-
zation which is an integral part of
the Engineering and Construction
Bureau of the Panama Canal.
Although under the supervision of
George McArthur, Dredging Divi-
sion's mechanical engineer, the three
students worked closely with HernAn
Barsallo, the division's engineering
technician. Barsallo, a graduate of
the University of Panama, taught the
students much of what he has learned
in engineering, especially in drafting.
Julian Hearne, chief, Dredging
Division, and Robert Lowry, assistant
chief, praised the student's work and
their interest in engineering. They
also pointed out the excellent train-
ing the students had received at the
university.


Ancient Indian

Vase Fragments


Being Assembled

Fragments of an Indian vase buried
hundreds of years ago were dug up
near the shores of the Tonosi River
in Azuero Province recently by a
group of Panama University students
during an archaeological expedition.
The expedition was directed by Dr.
Reina Torres de Arauiz, professor of
anthropology at Panama University.

When excavated, only the neck of
the clay artifact was well preserved.
The rest of the vase consisted of odd
pieces of painted pottery-remains of
an extinct culture.
These fragments are being assem-
bled by Ra6l GonzAlez, recently
graduated from the University of
Panama as a professor of history and
geography, and a member of the
Archaeological Department of the
Panama National Museum. He is
being aided in the reconstruction of
the Indian vase by Eduardo Campos,
an employee of the museum. (Picture

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Abril 15, 1966


Bote Escolta Muy Maternal


Se Vera en la Regata Anual


iHay que verlo para creerlo! Y cso
es lo que dirnin los muchachos explo-
radores de la Zona del Canal, durante
la Regata de Cayucos que tendrA
lugar los dias 22, 23 y 24 de abril,
cuando vean una de las lanchas que
los acompafiarAn en su recorrido.
Hay que verlo para creerlo es
practicamente lo que quiere decir
el nombre de la extrafia embarca-
ci6n: Blivit. MAs bien parece que
fuera una tina de bafio, de 19 pies de
largo, si uno se fija en el casco. Pero,
la tolda que lleva encima la hace
aparecer como algo venido de las
antipodas. (Ilustraci6n en la secci6n
inglesa.)
Eso fue lo que le pas6 a John
Ridge, Jr., que crey6 que un junco
chino habia invadido las tranquilas
aguas del Lago Gatin. Dijo, lleno
de asombro: "iHay que verlo para
creerlo!" Pero no era la inica sor-
presa que le esperaba. Todavia fue
mis grande cuando se dio cuenta de
que a bordo s6lo iban mujeres: la
capitana, Patsy Detamore, expert
en navegaci6n; Lois Harrison, ofici-
nista de la Corte del Distrito de Es-
tados Unidos, en Anc6n; y Maxine
Fitzgerald, enfermera del Hospital
Gorgas.
El casco del Blivit es de acero de
/4 de pulgada y tiene un motor de
10 caballos de fuerza. Originalmente
fue construido por Arnold J. Lan-
dreth para usarlo en la caceria de
patos. Luego lo adquiri6 William
"Red" Nail, que tenia grandes planes
para 61, pero no hizo nada. Se lo dio
a la Sra. Detamore, quien si sabia
lo que haria, ya que es una entusiasta
de los deportes nAuticos.
El Blivit serA uno de los 30 botes
que escoltarAn, vigilarAn y ayudarin
a los que tomen parte en la carrera
annual de cayucos. Son embarcaciones


de todos los tamafios y descripciones.
Cada uno tendra su lugar asignado
para actuar en cualquier emergencia.
Todos estarin provistos de megafo-
nos, binoculars, sogas para remolcar
o asegurar, suministros de primeros
auxilios y agua, para la tripulaci6n y
pasajeros. Este grupo de escoltas
deben asegurarse de que la regata
sea "limpia" y que no le pase nada
a los muchachos.
Una de sus principles obligacio-
nes es mantener a los participants
alejados de la ruta de los barcos que
cruzan el Canal. Tambi6n haran que
los botes de placer se mantengan
lejos de los competidores y no les
pasen cerca a alta velocidad, lo que
puede anegar los cayucos. De vez
en cuando tienen el desagradable
deber de descalificar alguno de los
participants.
Los escoltas gozan tanto como los
que toman parte en la regata y con-
sideran un honor ayudar al grupo de
unos 200 j6venes que todos los afios
hacen la regata de cayucos a trav6s
del Canal de Panamai.
En afios anteriores, los del lado
AtlAntico han escoltado los cayucos
desde el Club de Yates de Crist6bal
hasta las Esclusas de Gatin. Este
afio, H. J. "Jim" Million los escoltarA
desde Gatin, a trav6s del Canal del
Banano, a la Isla de Barro Colorado
y hasta Gamboa. Wes Townsend con
su bote Pachanga estarA con los mu-
chachos al igual que durante los
siltimos 12 afios.
Tambi6n cumplirin su deber otros
botes mis nuevos, como el Old
Man, Argonaut, Mahi Mahi, Evelyn,
Lois E., Chiquita, El Gejay, Puna-
hele, Cherokee y Little Bill. Pero es-
tamos seguros que ninguno tendra
una apariencia mAs rara y un espiritu
mis maternal que el Blivit.
