Iguanas "Bug" S&CS Secretaries

No one will ride with R. K. Erbe.
He has an iguana loose in his car!
How the iguana came to be in the
car of the assistant director of the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau is linked to mysterious
comings and goings, of iguanas, in
the Panama Canal's staid Admin-
istration Building.
There have been many conjectures
as to at what level investigation
should be conducted.
Floor level already has been tried.
The Great Iguana Mystery's first
chapter opened about 8 months ago
when Mary N. Orr, administrative
assistant in the Supply and Commu-
nity Service Bureau office, worked
late one evening and claimed she
saw an iguana. A fairly big one.
Right there in the office on the
second floor of the Administration
Building. Everyone who heard about
it had something silly to say. No one
believed there really was an iguana
in the office. Mary insisted she had
seen one.
Some 6 weeks later L. A. Fergu-
son, Director of the Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau, was in his
office at the close of the workday
and Mary Orr was at her desk when
lo and behold! He saw an iguana.
About 18 inches long. He tried to
catch the iguana, finally trapped it
behind the file cabinet, and took it
home in a shoebox. That iguana was
released in the Ferguson garden.
Iguana II appeared recently while
Ferguson was conducting a meeting
with members of the Canal Comp-
troller's staff in his office. This latest
iguana was about a foot long.
Over the interoffice communica-
tions system a call went to Erbe,
assistant director, identified as the
"Great White Hunter" of the Supply
He caught the iguana, but it got
away under a grandfather's clock.
Later the iguana reappeared in the
outer office. Mrs. Margaret F. Pre-
ciado, secretary, retreated across the
hall. Another secretary, Miss Diane
Roscoe said she didn't mind iguanas-
but it was noted she hopped to the
top of the file cabinet.
Eventually the second iguana was
caught, placed in a paper bag in
which holes had carefully been
punched, and Erbe took it out to the
car, with the objective of taking it

The iguana had another idea. He
made a getaway again. This time in
the Erbe car where, as far as i's
known, it still is, riding to and from
the Administration Building daily.
Just the iguana and Dick Erbe for,
until the iguana is located, no one
accepts invitations to ride along too.
No one knows how the iguanas get

into the Supply Bureau's office on the
second floor of the Administration
Building. Nor does anyone know
what the iguanas live on, or where
they obtain water. None of the plants
show any signs of having been
chomped on by iguanas, and no one
has been seen setting out saucers of

New Device

To Contain Oil

Fires Success
A successful test of a new device
to contain oil spills or fires on the
water has been carried out by the
Locks Division of the Marine Bureau.
Purpose of the device is to confine
oil fires to an area inside of a
"boom," which is built by stringing
together several 20-foot lengths of
10-inch diameter steel pipe. The
pipes are joined together by asbestos
to provide flexibility for positioning
the boom and for storage.
When tests are completed on
developing a successful boom, three
of the devices will be built, and
maintained in ready condition. They
will be used in case of an oil spill
resulting from a ship accident. One
would be put across Gaillard Cut at
Paraiso. The other two would be
used at the entrances to the lock
chambers at Pedro Miguel Locks.
In a previous test, polyethylene
and other materials were used for
the boom. These failed to survive the
intense heat, although the test did
show that the idea of using a boom
device would be successful.
Officials said the steel took the
heat but distorted in some areas. It
is believed that shorter lengths of
pipe, with only 4 inches of the pipe
above the water, will solve the
problem of distortion.
The test was conducted by starting
an oil fire, under Canal Zone Fire
Division supervision, within the
boom area.

Star Gazing

Season Ends
The Canal Zone Observatory,
which has been open to the public on
Sunday and Tuesday evenings, has
been closed until further notice.
Cloudy skies have obscured regular
observation of the stars, planets, and
other celestial objects.
Each year the observatory is open
2 evenings a week to the public for
general astronomy lectures and
viewing celestial objects through the
telescope. The observatory is used
also by the Schlools Division for
regular and supplementary class
work in astronomy and science

Open House May 6, 7

At Corozal Hospital

As part of the observance of Mental
Health Week in the Canal Zone, the
general public is invited to attend
open house at Corozal Hospital,
Friday and Saturday, May 6 and
May 7, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Corozal Hospital has progressed
from its modest beginnings in 1915
when it provided little more than
custodial care. While many improve-
ments have been made in the phys-
ical plant, more important are the
changes that have taken place in
treatment of the mentally ill.
The psychiatric staff combines with

occupational therapists and social
workers to form a clinical team that
can provide a complete evaluation of
the patient's needs and determine
what must be done in order to return
him to a normal life as soon as
The modern-day mental patient is
encouraged to apply for voluntary
admission without waiting for legal
commitment in order that treatment
may begin immediately. The latest
revision of the Canal Zone Code
makes it legally possible for any per-
son eligible for medical care in the
Canal Zone to request treatment at
Corozal Hospital without the stigma
of a court order.
The staff of Corozal Hospital wel-
comes the opportunity to show all
who are interested the many im-
provements that have made Corozal
Hospital a modern mental illness
treatment facility.

A quality step increase, one of the highest performance awards given by the Canal organization, is presented to
Mrs. Narcissus Porter, second from left, a Test Rating Examiner at the Central Employment Office, and to Mrs.
Esther Vald6s, Qualifications Rating Clerk at the Central Employment Office. Presenting the awards are Otto
Helmerichs, chief, Central Employment Office, right, and Stewart Reed, Executive Officer of the Canal Zone
Civilian Personnel Policy Coordinating Board. The awards were in recognition of high caliber performance of
duties, accomplished with thoroughness, dependability, accuracy, and technical competence beyond the
requirements of the position.

By Eleanor Burnham

James Smithson and the Smith-
sonian Story, by Leonard Carmichael
and J. C. Long, is billed as the first
complete biography of the founder
of the Smithsonian Institution.
Smithson was the illegitimate son of
Sir Hugh Smithson, first Duke of
Northumberland, but because of his
illegitimacy he was denied his father's
title. Probably as a result of this
injustice he resolved to make a name
for himself-and to perpetuate it. In
his will, written in 1826, Smithson,
a British subject, left to the United
States a legacy "to found . an
establishment for the increase and
diffussion of knowledge among men."
This book presents the history of the
Smithsonian from its original "castle-
like" headquarters, which everyone
called the "nation's attic," to its
present prestigious state as the
nation's showcase.
The spy story told in The Pen-
kovskiy Papers is more exciting than
a James Bond thriller because it is
true. It is the story of Oleg Pen-
kovskiy, Russian war hero and senior
officer in Soviet military intelligence,
who spied on his country in behalf
of the West. He was neither a paid
agent nor an ordinary defector, but
a zealot who hated the Soviet regime
because he believed Khrushchev to
be on a collision course with the
Western powers. The book contains

an introduction by Frank Gibney and
a forward by Edward Crankshaw.
In The Grand Hotels of Europe
Willi Frischauer describe such di-
stinguished hostelries as The Ritz in
Paris, Claridge's of London, and the
Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam, called
the Queen's "other palace." Fri-
schauer uses clear-cut black and
white photographs to illustrate his
book of famous hotels and adds
anecdotes and bits of gossip about
the rich and/or great to give this
book a special flavor. Frischauer is
a former correspondent for the
New York Times and the Manchester
Guardian and has written several
books, among them his autobiography
European Commuter.
The Family at Tammerton is a
who-dun-it about an unusual family,
their newly employed nurse, and a
detective inspector of Scotland Yard.
It soon becomes apparent that Nurse
Morton is in danger and that Tam-
merton is the appointed spot for her
demise. Fortunately she has Detec-
tive Inspector Septimus to look out
for her.
The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, by
Dorothy Gilman, is a sprightly sus-
pense tale about a middle-aged
widow who became a secret agent
and whose first assignment in Mexico
City almost turned out to be her last.

Sweet Adelines Musical

At Cristobal May 6, 7, 8

The Zone Tones, one of the quar-
tettes to be featured in the Sweet
Adelines' musical, "Magic Carpet,"
May 6, 7, and 8 at the Cristobal
Little Theater, is making its last
appearances with Clara Jorstad, the
lead. Mrs. Jorstad, a noteworthy
musical talent for the Crossroads
Chapter group and a fourth grade
teacher at the Margarita Elementary
School, will leave the Isthmus in
June to make her home in Ashe-
ville, N.C.
She is a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with a
B.A. in Musical Education, and is a
member of Sigma Alpha Iota, profes-
sional music fraternity, and Pi
Kappa Lambda, a National Music
Honor Society.
She has done solo and ensemble
work in vocal and string groups, and
was a member of the University
Symphony Orchestra and the Sagi-
naw Symphony Orchestra in Michi-
gan. She also appeared on a regular
radio program in Bay City. Prior to
coming to the Isthmus in 1946, she

was director of instrumental instruc-
tion in elementary schools in Hol-
land, Mich.
Since Mrs. Jorstad has been with
the Canal Zone Division of Schools,
she has organized numerous string
and vocal groups for school and com-
munity programs. In the past 2 years,
she has played in the Little Theatre
productions of "Guys and Dolls" and
"Damn Yankees." She is a charter
member of the Caribbean College
Club and the Crossroads Chapter of
Sweet Adelines, Inc., and is a mem-
ber of the Union Church choir in
Margarita. She also is an avid reader
and writes light verse.
Fellow members say Clara can
sing three of the four parts of this
quartette. But she can't do it alone.
Therefore, ably assisting her are
Grace Gillespie, tenor, a vivacious
New Yorker and den mother to large
numbers of Cub Scouts; Jane Huldt-
quist, bass, also originally from New
York and a valuable community
worker; and Barbara Clark, baritone,
from California.

La Division de Esclusas Crea

Una Barrera Contra Incendios-

Un experiment exitoso de un
nuevo dispositivo para contener
aceite incendiado en el agua, ha sido
Ilevado a cabo por la Divisi6n de
Esclusas de la Direcci6n de Marina.
El prop6sito del dispositivo es con-
tener los incendios de aceite en el
agua en un area dentro de una "ba-
rrera", que ha sido construida unien-
do varies tramos de 20 pies de largo
de cafieria de acero de 10 pulgadas
de diAmetro. Las secciones de cafieria
se juntan con asbesto para propor-
cionarle flexibilidad, de manera que
la barrera pueda ser colocada en
posici6n y tambi6n para guardarla.
Cuando las pruebas para conseguir
una barrera efectiva se terminen,
serin construidos tres de estos dispo-
sitivos y se mantendrin en condicio-
nes de ser usados en cualquier mo-
mento. Ello seri en los casos de
aceite derramado debido a acciden-

tes. Uno serA colocado a traves del
Corte Gaillard, en Paraiso. Los otros
dos, en las entradas de las Esclusas
de Pedro Miguel.
En un ensayo anterior, el polieti-
leno y otros materials no dieron
resultado, pero demostraron que la
idea de esta barrera si podria ser
Los funcionarios dijeron que el
acero aguant6 el calor pero se distor-
sion6 en ciertas areas. Se cree que
secciones mas cortas de cafieria, con
s6lo 4 pulgadas de tuberia sobresa-
liendo del agua, resolverin el pro-
blema de la distorsi6n. En la prueba
mis reciente, 6 pulgadas de la tube-
ria sobresalian del agua.
La prueba se hizo originando un
incendio de aceite, dentro del area
encerrada por la barrera, y bajo la
vigilancia de unidades de la Divisi6n
de Bomberos de la Zona del Canal.

Ccmo parte de la conmemoraci6n
de la Semana de Salubridad Mental
en la Zona del Canal, se invita al
puiblico en general a que visit el
Hospital de Corozal los diasviernes
y sibado, 6 y 7 de mayo, de 1 p.m.
a 4 p.m.
El Hospital de Corozal ha progre-
sado much, desde sus modestos co-
mienzos en 1915, cuando apenas si
prcporcionaba custodia. A la vez que
se han hecho mejoras en los edificios,
much mis importantes son los cam-
bios que se han verificado en el trata-
miento de los enfermos mentales. El
personal de psiquiatria se combine
con los terapeutas ocupacionales y
los trabajadores sociales para former
un equipo clinic que provea una
evaluaci6n complete de las necesi-
dades del paciente y determine qu6
debe hacerse para regresarlo a la vida
normal en el menor tiempo possible.
El paciente mental de hoy dia es

animado a entrar voluntariamente,
sin esperar la orden legal, para que
el tratamiento se inicie inmediata-
mente. La ultima revision del C6digo
de la Zona del Canal, hace legal-
mente possible que cualquiera per-
sona eligible para tratamiento m6-
dico en la Zona del Canal pueda re-
querir tratamiento en el Hospital de
Corozal sin el estigma de una orden
El personal del Hospital de Coro-
zal aprovecharA esta oportunidad
para mostrar a todos los interesados
las muchas mejoras que han conver-
tido al Hospital de Corozal en una
instalaci6n modern para el trata-
miento de las enfermedades men-

Algunos de los plates tipicos pana-
mehos son el sancocho, ceviche, ta-
males, bollos, patacones con puerco,
yuca frita, etc.

La Responsabilidad Personal
El suministro de equipos de protecci6n personal no es la parte mas impor-
tante de un program de seguridad, ya que con este equipo no se pretend
evitar la ocurrencia de accidents ni de controlar sus causes, sino evitar
la lesi6n o reducir su gravedad a un minimo.
No obstante, es responsabilidad de la gerencia de una compafiia el sumi-
nistrar los equipos de protecci6n personal que sean necesarios en los trabajos
que se realicen, de acuerdo con normas y practices establecidas por la
experiencia y las autoridades en la material.
Es responsabilidad de cada trabajador usar el equipo de protecci6n que
le ha sido suministrado, siempre que pueda estar expuesto al riesgo para
el cual se le ha dado protecci6n. No son muchas las oportunidades en que
se pueden apreciar las ventajas de usar los equipos protectores. Sin embargo,
en algunas ocasiones se ven los dividends.
Un trabajador de una empresa de construcci6n con estructura de acero,
de 19 arios de edad, estaba usando el casco que aparece en la fotografia
cuando fue golpeado por una limina de empalme de 0,6 x 20 x 45 centi-
metros que pesaba 7 kilos y que cay6 desde una altura de 4,5 metros. El
casco recibi6 el impact y se rompi6 en la forma que se' ve en la fotografia.
En el moment del accident el trabajador estaba atornillando una
estructura de acero en una torre.
Como resultado del golpe el trabajador sufri6 s6lo una pequefia herida
en el cuero cabelludo y despu6s de haber sido examinado por los m6dicos
fue enviado de regreso a su trabajo. De no haber estado usando su casco
la lesi6n podria haber sido fatal.

Excavaciones y su Entibacion
El riesgo principal de los trabajos de excavaci6n es la muerte por sofo-
caci6n o por aplastamiento, cuando el trabajador estA expuesto a fallas del
terreno que pueden sepultarlo. Los trabajadores tambien se encuentran
expuestos al riesgo de materials que puedan caer desde la parte alta y a
los demAs riesgos comunes al uso de la electricidad, agua, vapor y gas.
Las condiciones fangosas, normales en excavaciones, aumentan el riesgo de
resbalones y de caidas. El riesgo de golpearse contra algo o ser golpeado
por algo, estA aumentado por la congestion de personal, materials y equipo.
La mayoria de los derrumbes en excavaciones son el resultado de una
o mas de las siguientes causes:
a. No instalar los resguardos necesarios indicados por la estructura del
b. Entibaci6n defectuosa o improvisada.
c. Materiales para entibar defectuosos y conservaci6n inadecuada del
d. No descubrir y tomar medidas para compensar las cargas impuestas
por estructuras circundantes.
e. Cambios en las condiciones climatol6gicas que afectan al terreno y
al agua subterrAnea.
La muerte, las lesiones y los dafios de equipos resultantes de trabajos de
excavaci6n, pueden ser eliminados si se incorporan al trabajo medidas de
protecci6n adecuada. Las fallas del terreno se desarrollan lentamente,
durante cierto tiempo o repentinamente, sin previo aviso. Sin embargo, en
la mayoria de los casos las fallas dan suficiente aviso antes de que ocurran,
tales como asentamiento del terreno adyacente, grietas por tension paralelas
al borde de la excavaci6n y descascaramiento de las paredes.
Protecci6n del Area
1. Deben colocarse barreras para evitar que los trabajadores u otras
personas puedan caer en los huecos excavados.
2. Las rocas, los pedruzcos y pedazos grandes de tierra no deben ser
tirados sobre las pilas de material cuando exista el riesgo de que puedan
rodar sobre pasillos, calzadas u otras Areas de trabajo. Se pueden emplear
barreras de limina para confinar el material excavado a la inmediata
vecindad del trabajo.
3. No se debe permitir la acumulaci6n de materials excavados en Areas
de trabajo congestionadas. Deben retirarse del lugar en camiones o por
otro medio.
4. Se suministrarAn linternas, lAmparas o sefiales luminosas adecuadas
para ofrecer protecci6n en la noche contra caidas en las excavaciones.
Lineas Subterraneas de Servicios
1. Antes de empezar las operaciones se consultant con las autoridades
competentes para determinar la ubicaci6n exacta de todas las lines de
servicios las cuales se sefialarAn en el terreno por medio de estacas que
indiquen tambibn su profundidad. Si es necesario conservar intactas tales
lines, se colocarAn resguardos para protegerlas durante la excavaci6n y
la construcci6n.
2. No se permitirA la excavaci6n con palas o dragas mecanicas cerca de
un sistema subterrAneo de conducci6n de corriente el6ctrica. Si fuera
possible, se cortarA la corriente antes de empezar la excavaci6n cerca de
tal lugar.
3. Cuando se excava a mano, se debe advertir a los trabajadores para
que no vayan a perforar con los picos las lines subterraneas. Mangueras
de aire, conectadas a tierra, proveeran protecci6n para los operadores de
martillos neumAticos, en el caso de hacer contact con una linea electrica
Tanques SubterrAneos
1. Se determinarA la ubicaci6n precisa de los tanques subterrAneos y se
sefialarA por medio de estacas o de otro medio visible. Tambi6n se deben
sefialar las lines de conexi6n al tanque.
2. El contenido de los tanques debe ser conocido y se deben tomar las
medidas de precauci6n correspondientes.
3. Si fuera necesario excavar por debajo o muy cerca del tanque, se
entibarA la excavaci6n o se mantendrA un talud stable cuya base se encuen-
tre al borde del costado exterior mAs sobresaliente del soporte del tanque.

La Sra. Margaret Mayr, de Cambridge, Massachusetts, estudia muy atentamente, las caracteristicas de uno de
los monolitos de la cultural precolombina indigena de PanamA, que fueron encontrados hace algunos afios en la
region de Barriles (VolcAn), en la Provincia de Chiriquf. La Sra. Mayr es una de las tantas personas que visitan
todos los dias el Museo Nacional de PanamA y que provienen de todas parties del mundo.
