A change in the way Government
agencies figure travel expenses will
affect most Panama Canal employees
who go on home leave to the United
Effective Government wide, the
new ruling involves mileage allow-
ance and per diem pay to employees
who travel by auto for personal con-
venience. It grew out of a decision
by the U.S. Comptroller General on
a claim for a combined mileage and
per diem payment. As a result, mile-
age allowances now are payable
separate from per diem.
Since August 1964, payment for
per diem and mileage has been
limited to the cost of airline tickets
for the employee and his family.
And that payment is limited to coach
class air travel. An exception is made
to this if travel by train is less
Now, an employee is paid to the
limit that it would cost him and his
family to fly on the family plan.
Many airlines offer this plan, which
gives discounts ranging from 25 to
66 percent for the members of a
family, on certain days of the week
and on some routes.
Of course, if an employee has
approval to travel by car, or by train,


A Suggestion Award certificate and a check for $185 are presented by
Acting Canal Zone Gov. H. R. Parfitt, left, to John L. Joshua of the
Panama Canal's Engineering Division, whose suggestion will result in a
saving of about $3,000 a year for the Canal organization. See story on page 4.

SCN-TV to Show
Safety Program
A half-hour program on Pres-
ident Johnson's Mission Safety-70
program is to be featured on
SCN-TV at 9 o'clock this evening.
A film will explain the reasons
for and goal of Mission Safety-70
and there will be a filmed address
by President Johnson, comments
by Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
and Gen. Robert W. Porter, Jr.,
USSOUTHCOM Commander in
Chief and a panel discussion by
heads of the safety organizations
of the Army, Air Force, and

his payment will be figured that way.
This will happen only when the cost
is less to the Government than air
In the rare case where airlines do
not serve the route to an employee's
destination, travel allowance will be
figured on the least expensive way
to get there.
Since nearly any point in the
United States can be reached by air
in less than a day, most employees
will not travel long enough to receive
any per diem, except for per diem
earned on the SS Cristobal.
An employee still may travel by
auto, if he wishes, but if it takes him
3 days to drive home on a route that
takes 4 hours by air, he won't
qualify for per diem.

Schooling Benefits

Broadened for Vets

The Veterans' Readjustment Bene-
fits Act of 1966, approved in March,
provides educational assistance for
both veterans who served on active
duty with the Armed Forces after
January 31, 1955, and military per-
sonnel who are currently on active
duty and have served 2 years or
It is designed to help veterans and
service personnel obtain education or
training to fit them for a chosen
career or better employment oppor-
tunities in civilian life.
Administration of the law is the
responsibility of the Veterans' Ad-
The following categories are eligi-
ble for the educational assistance
provided by the law: a. A veteran
who has served continuously on
active duty for a period of at least
181 days, and part of which was
after January 31, 1955, and who was
discharged or released under condi-
tions other than dishonorable.
b. A veteran who served less than
181 days may be eligible if he was
discharged or released because of
service-connected disability.
c. A person who is currently in
service if he has served on active
duty for at least 2 years.
The amount of schooling is limited
to 36 months or 4-school years of
9 months each. If an individual has
received comparable VA educational
assistance for military service, the
limit of 36 months may be reduced
The VA can not provide educa-
tional assistance after 8 years from
the date of discharge or release for
those individuals who are currently
on active duty. The time limit for a
veteran whose service ended before
June 1, 1966, is May 31, 1974.
The amount of assistance varies
considerably according to the status
of the individual, number of depen-
dents, and the educational load.
A veteran attending full time will
receive $100 a month for himself and
$25 a month for each dependent for
a maximum of two dependents.

Date for Classes

Next School Term
All Canal Zone U.S. schools-
which include elementary, junior,
and senior high school and col-
lege levels-are scheduled to begin
August 26 and end May 25, 1967.
Teacher orientation is scheduled
for August 26 and 29 and classes
will begin Tuesday, August 30.
The next school term will start
and end 1 week earlier because
of college graduation dates in the
States, opening dates for summer

Before World War II

.We WZaught drivingg

On telt in Zone

If you're one of several thousand
women in the Canal Zone with a
driver's license, chances are good
that you are a former pupil of retired
Canal Zone policeman George
Russon, now 70, has been teach-
ing people since 1925 both in the
Canal Zone and Republic of Pan-
ama the art of driving a motor vehi-
cle. When he started, said Russon,
"the streets were very narrow, but
the traffic was extremely light and
drivers were more courteous than
they are today."
"We also used to drive on the
left-hand side of the road, like the
British, and we continued to do this
until the beginning of the war."
(World War II.)
Russon has taught more than
3,000 people how to drive. Approxi-
mately 2,500 of his pupils have been
women. Husbands who would shoot
any other man who took their wives
for a ride unhesitatingly trusted their
wives with Russon.
Mature women and young women
just out of their teens have gone glee-
fully behind an automobile steering
wheel with Russon by their side.
In his 40 years as a driving instruc-
tor, he never had to advertise for a
client. People practically begged to
hire him, and he recalls teaching
three and four generations of several
families how to drive. His technique
is relatively simple. He studies the
abilities of his pupils and then plans
his program to suit his students. He
constantly talks to his students while
they are driving and attempts to put
them in a relaxed and self-confident
mood. Lessons usually are of a
2-hour duration with a 10- to 15-
minute rest period after the first hour.
Russon was born in Cleveland,
Ohio, in 1896. He came to the Canal
Zone in 1916 and was employed as
a policeman from 1916 until 1950

Cristobal Gets

News Via Hams

Passengers on board the Panama
Canal's SS Cristobal usually have to
wait until the vessel docks before
they can catch up on local news, but
not the passengers who sailed on the
last northbound trip to New Orleans.
Lynn Frauenheim, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. K. E. Frauenheim,
learned at breakfast one morning
that she was the new vice president
of next year's senior class at Balboa
High School. At the time the vessel
sailed, she was still tied for the
Bruce Sanders, Jr., chief inspector,
Cristobal, of the Panama Canal Cus-
toms Division, who left May 16 with
Mrs. Sanders for the United States
via the Inter-American Highway,
chatted from their car with pas-
sengers on board the Cristobal.
In between times, the Cristobal's
passengers exchanged small talk with
the Vatican in Rome, checked on
weather conditions in Paris and
London, and picked up bits of inter-
esting news here and there about

Humane De-Ratter
A patent is being sought for a
device which is claimed to "hu-
manely" scare away rats, mice, and
birds from ships, dockyards, and fac-
tories. It is a sound device which
transmits high frequency sound
waves said to ensure complete
"signal" coverage of a given indoor
The sound waves are inaudible to
human ears, but frighteningly deaf-
ening to rats, mice, and most birds,
it is said, causing them to evacuate
the area.

the world, to say nothing of con-
tacting relatives in the United States.
It wasn't done with a magic wand.
It was done by amateurs, licensed
amateur radio operators, represented
on board the SS Cristobal by Canal
Zone Police Sgt. and Mrs. Russell E.
Oberholtzer of Gatun, who had ob-
tained permission to operate their
high frequency radio equipment on
board ship. Husband and wife,
licensed in the Canal Zone as KZ50A
and KZ50B, have been operating
"Maritime Mobile" on board the
vessel and have been in communica-
tion with the Canal Zone through a
brother-sister hook up, for John S.
Catanzaro of Los Rios, KZ5JC, is a
brother of Mrs. Oberholtzer. Sched-
uled, before docking, was a 3-way
talk between Mrs. Oberholtzer on
the Cristobal, her brother in the
Canal Zone, and their mother in
They talked to people all over the
United States and Europe, and gave
the Cristobal's crew the thrill of
communicating via phone patch with
their families.
The amateur radio communication
with Bruce Sanders, KZ5SS (Mrs.
Sanders is KZ5SN) probably marked
a first for Inter-American Highway-
SS Cristobal conversations. Just as
Sergeant and Mrs. Oberholtzer took
along their mobile radio transceivers
on the Cristobal to New Orleans
voyage, the Sanders took along theirs
on the Inter-American Highway trek.
All the Canal Zone "hams" men-
tioned also have Stateside radio
licenses issued by the Federal Com-
munications Commission.

when he retired. He spent his first
13 months at Pedro Miguel and the
next 33 years at Ancon. "In 1916,"
he said, "there were only about 150
policemen in the entire Canal Zone,
and a good many of us rode horses
on our beat. We worked 365 days
a year, with no days off, for $80 a
In 1950, Russon retired from the
Canal Zone Police Division and
became a permanent guest at the
Tivoli Guest House. He plans to
leave the Isthmus in June for a
4-month tour of the United States
which will include a visit to his
eldest son, George, a former Canal
Zone resident now living in Auburn,
Wash., and then go on to Lakeland,
Fla., where he plans to reside.

Savings Bonds

Can Give Funds

For Retirement
Have you given any thought to
additional income after retirement?
An excellent way to provide for
extra $$$$ when your income will be
smaller than it is while you're work-
ing-and when your income tax also
will be smaller, is to invest in U.S.
Savings Bonds NOW, by payroll
deduction. You can put them away
in a safety deposit box and let the
interest accumulate.
(Series E Bonds, remember, auto-
matically continue to earn interest
after maturity.)
Then, when your income is re-
duced at retirement, you can cash
your bonds as you need funds, per-
haps for a new car, the downpay-
ment on your retirement home, or
possibly only once in a blue moon
when you want an extra something.
The amount of income tax added
to your tax will be very small. In
fact, remember that your tax will be
almost nothing for the first 2Y2 years
after retirement.
U.S. Savings Bonds are subject
only to Federal Income Tax when
they are cashed. They are not subject
to State or local taxes.

In a recent Midwest tornado, four
men were riding in an automobile
that was picked up and hurled more
than 250 yards. Three of the men
were thrown out of the car, two of
whom were killed, the third seriously
injured. The driver, who wore a seat
belt, stayed inside and was not
seriously hurt.

45 Award Winners

Forthy-five Panama Canal em-
ployees are the richer today for
having donned their thinking caps
and then put on paper beneficial
suggestions which improve the Pan-
ama Canal operations through
savings in time and cost. The Sugges-
tion Award certificates, each accom-
panied by a check, were presented
the employees by Acting Canal
Zone Gov. H. R. Parfitt in an
awards ceremony in the Board Room,
Administration Building, Balboa
The top award of $185 was pres-
ented John L. Joshua of the Engi-
neering Division, Engineering and
Construction Bureau, for a sugges-
tion that will result in a saving of
about $3,000 a year for the Canal
organization. He suggested a new
method of painting the Gaillard Cut
intermediate ranges, used in survey-
ing and dredging. His suggestion was
to paint them in place, eliminating
the process of removing them from
their location.
Two generations of non-U.S. cit-
izens, represented by father and son
Panama Canal employees were
among the awards winners. The
father, Cedric F. Gittens, who is
employed in the time office of the
Terminals Division, Cristobal, and
a coworker, Albert A. Smith, each
received $20 for a suggestion that
concerned the skylights on Pier 7,
Cristobal, and saved on electricity.
The son, Cedric W. Gittens, a mem-
ber of the Panama Canal Fire Divi-
sion, was awarded $25 for a sugges-
tion that portable lights be attached
to life vests.
Carl W. Reynolds of the Canal
Locks Division received an award
of $125 for a suggestion that con-
cerned oil pressure gages on the
Locks locomotives, plus an award for
$15 for a suggestion regarding pre-
vention of night time glare during
operation of Locks locomotives.
An award of $75 was presented
Gilbert H. Davis of the Locks Divi-
sion for a suggestion that resulted in
improved cable hooks on the Locks
Mario L. FAbrega of the Account-
ing Division received $40 for a sug-
gestion on the subject of accounting
for ice sales.
Employees who received $25 In-
centive awards are: Capt. Ben F.
Smith, Carlos A. Payne who received
two such awards for two separate
suggestions, Frances D. Wheeler,
Jos6 E. Corc6, Richard 0. Burgoon,
Chiquita C. Cassibry, and Vicki M.
Beneficial suggestion awards of
$20 each were presented: Jack M.
Ruoff, Frederick C. Bitter, Cleveland
Johnson, Jesu's M. Figueroa, and
Jasper J. Richards.

Awards of $15 each were received
by: Charles Morris, Bertha I. Frens-
ley, who had three suggestions
accepted and received three checks,
Ralph L. Stinson, Robert L. Coffey,
Roy A. Watson, Carolyn L. Holger-
son, John Mann, Chiquita C. Cas-
sibry, William G. Bingham, Verne F.

Cars To Go

As Deck Cargo

On Cristobal
The Panama Canal's SS Cristoba.
provides ocean transportation service
for PanCanal organization and other
Government agency cargo on a first
priority, with private automobiles
carried for the convenience of the
employee on a space-available basis.
In the past, there have only been
a few occasions when the volume of
cargo has been at a level requiring
personal automobiles to be "shut
out" or left at the port of departure.
However, with an increasing amount
of cargo being moved on the ship,
there may be times when private
automobiles cannot be accepted due
to lack of space.
Every effort will be made to
accommodate all employee automo-
biles, and cars accompanied by pas-
sengers on board the SS Cristobal
will be given priority over unaccom-
panied vehicles. Should the volume
of cargo necessitate that an em-
ployee's automobile be left behind
on one voyage, that vehicle will be
given priority, if space is available,
for shipment on the following
During peak passenger seasons,
particularly as schools are closed for
the summer vacation period, and
again as families return to the Isth-
mus, employees will be offered deck
stowage of automobiles to avoid
leaving the car at the port. This deck
stowage of automobiles will be
offered the shipper on other occa-
sions during heavy cargo sailings,
with protective coverings provided
by the vessel.
For automobiles carried as deck
cargo, the Water Transportation
Division will provide a fresh water
car spray at the conclusion of the
voyage. With utilization of deck
space it is expected that delay in
shipping cars will be reduced.

BHS Wins

The Balboa High School swimmers
defeated the Cristobal High School
and Canal Zone College to capture
the Interscholastic Championship for
1966. The BHS girls team scored 58
points against the CHS girls team
total of 27. The BHS boys received
69 points as CHS scored 14 and
CZC picked up 12.
No new interscholastic swim
records were set this year.
One of the most exciting races
during this championship meet was
the 50-yard freestyle event for boys.
Brian Keeney (CZC) edged Jim
Jenner (BHS) in a squeaker. Both
boys were trying for their first win
in this event and as they came out
of the turn Jim was holding a slight
lead over Brian. But as they covered
the last 15 yards, Brian, pressing
hard, just touched Jim out to gain
the victory.
Gary Vaucher and Doug Le-
Febvre, both of BHS, seemed to be
trying to outdo each other as they
exchanged wins in their two indi-
vidual events, the 100-yard butterfly
and the 200-yard individual medley.
Doug came from behind to catch
Gary in the 200-yard race as he won
this event. Gary came back in the
100-yard butterfly and did the same
thing to Doug as he came from
behind to claim victory.
Captains of this year's champion-.
ship teams were Christie Jenner for
the girls team and Wally Murdoch
for the boys.

Waiting Eased

For Passengers

Of Cristobal
Passengers sailing from the Canal
Zone aboard the SS Cristobal for
New Orleans are reminded that for
their convenience the Panama Canal
Transportation Branch has arranged
for examination of vaccination cer-
tificates and collection of deck chair
rental on the Isthmus when pas-
sengers pick up their tickets.
Formerly, passengers had to pre-
sent their vaccination documents to
the purser and pay rental for the
deck chairs to the deck steward after
the ship left the dock.
Under the new system, passengers
may pay deck chair rental and get a
receipt at the time they receive their
tickets. Upon boarding the SS Cris-
tobal, they can attach the receipt to
any deck chair that is not already
Examination of vaccination certifi-
cates at the time tickets are obtained
eliminates standing in line at the
purser's office after the ship sails.

Rickert sera la director y Ana Lud-
mila Gee, la core6grafa.

En las altas montafias de la Pro-
vincia de Cocld hay un felino, de poco
tamaho, cuya mayor particularidad es
que su alimento favorite consiste de
naranjas. Tiene una gran voracidad,
por lo cual causa enormes dafios a
los naranjales. Los nativoslo llaman
"fufund" o "gato months" y creen fir-
memente que no se le debe matar con
machete, ya que de cada gota de su
sangre saldrian diez peores que il.
Por eso dicen que al "fufund" hay
que matarlo con rifle.

playa los domingos. "El pueblo que
mis me gusta, por supuesto que es
el mio: Cafiazas. Pero si tuviera que
elegir otro pueblo para ir a pasar el
resto de mi vida, escogeria a Las
Tablas", dice sonriendo. Afiade: "Mi
mayor deseo, que ha Sido el de foda
mi vida, es poder estudiar. Para

surgir cada dia que pasa y yo tengo que seguir su ejemplo". Tienen una
hijita de 18 meses, lo mAs querido de la familiar, por ser la mis pequefia.

Por Primera vez Hablan Desde

Un Automovil en la Carretera

Interamericana con el Cristobal

Los pasajeros a bordo del barco
Cristdbal del Canal de PanamA, por
lo general tienen que esperar hasta
que el navio Ilegue a puerto para
ponerse al dia con las noticias loca-
les, pero no los pasajeros que par-
tieron en el ultimo viaje hacia Nueva
Lynn Frauenheim, hija del Sr.
y Sra. K. E. Frauenheim supo
una mariana durante el desayuno
que era la nueva vicepresidenta de
la clase superior del pr6ximo afio
en la Escuela Secundaria de Balboa.
Cuando el barco parti6, todavia esta-
ba empatada por ese honor.
Bruce Sanders, Jr., Inspector Jefe
de la Divisi6n de Aduanas del Canal
de Panama en Crist6bal, quien parti6
el 16 de mayo con su esposa hacia
los Estados Unidos por la Carretera
Interamericana, convers6 desde su
autom6vil con los pasajeros a bordo
del Crist6bal.
Por ratos, los pasa;eros del Cristd-
bal intercambiaron conversaciones
con el Vaticano en Roma, conocieron
las condiciones atmosf6ricas en
Paris y Londres, y supieron algunas
noticias mundiales, ademAs de comu-
nicarse con parientes en los Estados
Esto no fue nada de magia. Fue
hecho por aficionados, radioaficiona-
dos con licencia, representados a
bordo del Crist6bal por el Sargento
de la Policia de la Zona del Canal,
Russell E. Oberholtzer y su esposa,

de Catfin, quienes habian obtenido

Maritima" a bordo del barco y han
estado en comunicaci6n con la Zona

de hermano y hermana, por John
S. Catanzaro de Los Rios, KZ5JC,
quien es hermano de la Sra. Ober-
holtzer. Antes de atracar, estaba se-
fialada una conversaci6n de 3 vias
entire la Sra. Oberholtzer en el Cris-
tdbal, su hermano en la Zona del
Canal y su madre en Chicago.
Hablaron con personas de todos
los Estados Unidos y Europa, y die-
ron a la tripulaci6n del Crist6bal la
emoci6n de comunicarse por medio
del tel6fono con sus familiares.
La comunicaci6n por radioaficio-
nado con Bruce Sanders, KZ5SS (la
Sra. Sanders es KZ5SN) probable-
mente sefial6 las primeras conversa-
ciones entire la Carretera Interame-
ricana y el Crist6bal. Tan pronto
como el Sargento y la Sra. Ober-
holtzer se llevaron su estaci6n m6vil
al Crist6bal, en su viaje a Nueva
Orleans, los Sanders se Ilevaron el
suyo en su jornada por la Carretera
Todos los radioaficionados de la

En Junio se ira George Russon

Maestro de Muchos Conductores

Si usted es una de los miles de
damas que manejan en la Zona del
Canal, es muy possible que fuera
alumna de George Russon, policia
iubilado de la Zona del Canal.
Russon, que ahora tiene 70 afios,
empez6 a ensefiar a conducir auto-
m6viles en 1925. Cuando comenz6,
dice Russon "las calls eran muy es-
trechas, pero no habia much trAfico
y los conductores eran mas corteses.
"Tambi6n manejAbamos a la iz-
quierda, como los ingleses, y lo se-
guimos hacienda hasta despu6s de la
II Guerra Mundial".
Russon le ha ensefiado a manejar
a mas de 3.000 personas; unas 2.500
de ellas eran mujeres. Esposos que
hubieran matado a cualquiera que
hubiera llevado a sus esposas de
paseo, no dudaban en poner a las
suyas bajo la tutela de Russon.
Viejas y jovencitas probaron la
emoci6n de verse por primera vez
operando un auto, con Russon a su
En sus 40 afios de instructor de
manejo, jamAs tuvo que poner anun-
cios en los peri6dicos. PrActica-
mente le rogaban que les prestara
sus servicios. Recuerda que le ensefi6
a manejar a tres y cuatro generacio-
nes de varias families. Su tecnica era
relativamente simple. Su program

de ensefianza variaba de acuerdo con
las habilidades de sus alumnos. Les
hablaba constantemente, mientras
manejaban, para relajarlos y darles
confianza. Las classes duraban aproxi-
madamente 2 horas, con un descanso
de 10 a 15 minutes despu6s de la
primera hora.
Russon naci6 en Cleveland, Ohio,
en 1896. Vino a la Zona del Canal
en 1916 y trabaj6 como policia desde
entonces hasta 1950, cuando se ju-
bil6. Los primeros 13 meses de ser-
vicio los cumpli6 en Pedro Miguel y
los siguientes 33 aiios, en Anc6n.
"En 1916", dijo, "s6lo habia unos
150 policies en toda la Zona del
Canal, y muchos de nosotros hacia-
mos nuestras rondas a caballo. Tra-
bajAbamos 365 dias al afio, sin dias
libres, por $80 al mes".
En 1950, Russon se jubil6 de la
Division de Policia de la Zona del
Canal y se estableci6 como hu6sped
permanent en la Casa de Hu6spedes
Tivoli. Piensa salir del Istmo en junior,
para una gira de 4 meses por los
Estados Unidos, que incluirA una
visit a su hijo mayor George, tam-
bien antiguo resident de la Zona
del Canal, quien al present vive en
Auburn, Washington. Luego piensa
establecer su residencia en Lake-
land, Florida.

El Factor Humano en Seguridclad
En la actualidad aun los mAs incredulos no dudan de la utilidad
de los cascos, anteojos, guantes y ropas de protecci6n personal. Nadie
duda tampoco de las especificaciones de los fabricantes sobre la
duraci6n de estos articulos bajo las diferentes condiciones de uso
o desuso y sobre las medidas que deben ser adoptadas antes de que
el articulo se deteriore o rompa.
Pero . 6qu6 pasa con las diferentes cabezas bajo los cascos?
dlos ojos detras de los anteojos? alas manos adentro de los guantes?
dC6mo se puede determinar y registrar sus especificaciones constan-
temente y precisamente bajo condiciones desuEadas o a6n como
respuestas corrientes al trabajo diario?
Existen diversas formulas, algunas bastantes precisas e informa-
tivas para evaluar tanto la capacidad como la incapacidad del traba-
jador. No obstante muy a menudo se encuentra la respuesta 6nica-
mente despu6s de ocurrido el accident y es entonces cuando nos
enfrentamos al problema de determinar tan exactamente como sea
possible la capacidad fisica, emotional y ocupacional del trabajador.
Se present entonces la situaci6n de tener que "encontrar el trabajo
para el hombre en lugar del hombre para el trabajo".
Ain en esta era de tantos adelantos mecAnicos los ingenieros de
seguridad se encuentran al dia con dispositivos de seguridad adecua-
dos. Pero, seguridad? Despues de investigar un accident muy a menudo se
llega a la conclusion de que se ha debido a "error del piloto en
lugar de ser un error mecdnico". No existen suficientes dispositivos
(y nunca los habrA) para transformnnar al hombre en un "robot"
Existe un dispositivo de seguridad para controlar y dirigir los
reflejos humans? 8Existen dispositivos (o drogas inofensivas) que
puedan ser utilizados juntamente con los periods de descanso y la
musica para disminuir los efectos hipn6ticos de muchos trabajos
monotonos y rutinarios y en esta torma prevenir un movimiento
en falso?
Muy a menudo el accident que finalmente sucede en el trabajo
se origin en la discusi6n tenida durante el desayuno a las 7 de la
mafiana, se fue incubando lentamente y "estall6" a las 11 en el
trabajo. A diferencia de lo que sucede con las mAquinas, el ser
human no puede ser "encendido" y "apagado" para que funcione
sin problems durante las 8 horas de trabajo. A menudo se dice que
"el patr6n se lleva el trabaio a su casa", pero el trabajador lleva
su casa al trabajo.
Los accidents en el trabajo, a pesar de que pueden ser evitados
en muchisimos casos, no podrAn nunca ser completamente eliminados
mientras subsista el variable "factor humano.
