New harbor tug "Hugh Rodman" displays its power at Mount Hope where she was formally turned over to
the Panama Canal organization during a ceremony. Aboard the vessel are Panama Canal officials and the
president of the company that manufactured the tug.



By Canal

The new tug Hugh Rodman, boast-
ing the latest in hull design for tug-
boats, was officially turned over to
the Panama Canal this week during
a ceremony at Mount Hope.
Named after Adm. Hugh Rodman,
the Panama Canal organization's
first Marine Superintendent, the 109-
foot vessel is the first of six new
Navy type, 2,000 horsepower harbor
tugs programed for procurement
annually over a 6-year period.
Capt. M. J. Prince, Marine Direc-
tor, said the Rodman replaces the
Gatun which will be transferred to
the Dredging Division to serve as a
barge pusher. The Rodman will be
assigned to the Port Captain, Balboa.
The senior master will be Capt.
Ralph Curles and W. G. Rowe will
be senior chief engineer.
A. R. Seligman, president of
Southern Shipbuilding Corp., Slidell,
La., which constructed the tug,
turned her over to Capt. Chester E.
Briggs, Jr., Chief of the Navigation
Division. Seligman's company was
contracted to build the Rodman after
submitting a low bid of $595,000.
Also present at the ceremony were:
Captain Prince; L. A. Ferguson, Di-
rector of the Supply and Community
Service Bureau, who served as con-
tracting officer for the Panama Canal
in the purchase of the tug. Capt.
Richard C. Sergeant, Port Captain
of Balboa; and M. B. Nickel, Chief
of the Industrial Division.

Mrs. Ursula Thompson of Balboa
collects scholastic honors as other
people collect coins.
The mother of 13 children and
grandmother to 2, she was graduated
as the valedictorian of the Canal
Zone College class of June 1965 and
now has been granted a nonresident
undergraduate honor scholarship
award by Louisiana State University
at Baton Rouge, La., where she is
attending summer school.
This latter award represents a dis-
tinctive honor for Mrs. Thompson
since Louisiana State University has
only a small quota of such scholar-
ships for nonresident students and
many applications from out-of-State
students are received for the award.
This scholarship award will pay
Mrs. Thompson's nonresident tuition
fees. In addition, she was selected by
the Louisiana State University ad-
ministration for a position of Grad-
uate Counselor in the Women's
Residence Halls. Normally, this posi-
tion is held by graduate students,
but Mrs. Thompson was selected
because of her outstanding scholar-
ship record, her maturity, and her

a degree of associate of arts in

Keeping house for 15 persons and
getting straight "A's" while attend-

problems for her. Mrs. Thompson
once pointed out that fafnily plan
is the keynote. Each child has a

there is a family schedule to be
Between classes, Mrs. Thompson
said, she ran back and forth to the
family's cottage on Plank Street,
Balboa, which isn't too far from the
college. She'd pop a load of wash
into the washing machine, or a
casserole into the oven, maybe help
a child or two with homework and
then go back to her next class. She
carried an overload of 21 semester
credits, which was permitted in her
case because of her excellent grades.

The Appalachians by Maurice 1
Brooks is more than a travel book. a
It is the loving description of one of ]
the most beautiful and varied regions g
in North America. Brooks knows the ]
region well. He writes of its birds, ]
forests, and peaks and of its famous I
"pink beds"-rhododendrons grow-
ing on Roan Mountain. The book is t
illustrated with many photographs in t
both black-and-white and in color.
A map of the Appalachians is used
on the end papers.
A different sort of travel book is

Fellowship Goes

To Jack DeVore
Jack B. DeVore, Jr., son of Mr.
and Mrs. Jack B. DeVore, Sr., former
residents of La Boca, has received
a Kansas State College Fellowship,
one of 20 graduate fellowships
awarded to the college under the
U.S. Higher Education Act.
DeVore, a graduate of Balboa
High School, attended Canal Zone
College and graduated from Kansas
State College this past June. He will
use the fellowship towards a master's
degree in industrial arts education
and plans to teach industrial arts in
a high school.
DeVore is married to Patricia
Bain, also a former Canal Zone
resident, and they have a small
Jack B. DeVore, Sr., retired re-
cently from the Accounting Division
and the DeVores are living in
Dunedin, Fla.

Student assistant Donald F. Welling-
ton, works in the Systems Division of
the Office of the Comptroller, in
Ancon. Don, 20, a Canadian citizen,
was born in Barranca, Colombia, and
has lived in Panama for the last 5
years. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Fred J. Wellington of Panama City.
A 1963 graduate of Balboa High
School, he attended Canal Zone Col-
lege his freshman year and will be
a senior at the University of North
Carolina this fall. An honor student,
Don was a member of Phi Theta
Kappa, the honorary scholastic fra-
ternity at Canal Zone College, and
made the Dean's List at North Car-
olina. He was a member of the BHS
football and basketball teams, the
Canal Zone College basketball team,
the soccer team at North Carolina,
and is currently playing in the Circa
summer basketball league. He is also
an avid golfer, and enjoys water
skiing and surfing. Among his future
plans are an August wedding, then
back to college to obtain his bachelor
of science degree in business admin-
istration next June, then on to
graduate school.

How To Be Rich is not a gimmicky
book by a humorist. It's a straight-
forward account of how he got that
way by one of the world's richest
men, billionaire J. Paul Getty. He
made his first million at 24-and from
then on out it seems he couldn't lose.
He has strong ideas about every-
thing-what to seek as essential
qualities for an executive, how to
deal with labor fairly, and how to
buy stocks and real estate.

Hatch Act Questions and Answers

Following are questions and
answers regarding the Hatch Act
which guarantees to Federal em-
ployees the right to participate in
numerous political activities with-
out any interference, persuasion, or
official domination:

What employees are prohibited by
the Hatch Act from active participa-
tion in politics?
Employees of the executive branch
of the Federal Government and the
Government of the District of
Columbia, including temporary and
part-time employees. The political
activity of employees of any State or
local agency whose principal em-
ployment is in connection with a

Federally financed activity is also
Does the Hatch Act apply to part-
time Government employees?
Is it possible for a Federal em-
ployee to run for public office on the
ticket of a national or State political
No. Federal employees cannot be
candidates for any national, State,
county, or municipal office filled by
partisan election. They may run for
local office only in elections that are
May employees covered by the
Act attend political rallies and join
political clubs?
Employees covered by the Hatch

Act can attend political rallies and
join political clubs, but they cannot
take an active part in the conduct of
the rally or operation of the club.
Other things they are prohibited
from doing are becoming involved in
soliciting or collecting political con-
tributions, distributing campaign
material, and selling dinner tickets,
or otherwise actively promoting such
activities as political dinners.
May an employee who is subject
to the Hatch Act write a letter to the
editor of a local newspaper, express-
ing his opinion on a partisan issue?
Yes, but he must not solicit votes
for or against any political party or
partisan candidate. If he solicits
votes, it is a Hatch Act violation.

Mission Safety-70

Program Pays Off

The Panama Canal organization's
participation in President Johnson's
Mission Safety-70 Program contrib-
uted substantially to the overall
reduction in disabling injuries occur-
ring to Federal employees last year.
The chief of the Panama Canal
Safety Branch reports that there was
a 14.3 percent reduction in the
organization's injury frequency rate.
This exceeded the overall Federal
injury frequency rate decline of 4.3
percent noted by Labor Secretary
Willard Wirtz in a Mission Safety-70
progress report to President Johnson.
Much of the improvement in the
Canal Zone is attributed to increased
worker and supervisor safety training
provided by bureau safety personnel
during 1965. Almost 12,000-man
hours of training were provided and
safety films were shown to audiences
totaling more than 19,000 persons
including students and private orga-
nizations as well as employees of the
Canal organization.
The Wirtz report states there was
a reduction from 2 to 26 percent in

the injury rates among the 14 largest
agencies employing more than three-
fourths of the Federal employees
The report also stated that there were
1,000 fewer disabling injuries to
Federal employees during the first
year of the program, 1965.
The President said in a statement:
"We are pleased with these results.
But we must press on to meet our
long-range goals. Accidents still cost
the Government about $200 million
each year plus untold human suffer-
ing. Agency heads must now trans-
late their declarations of intent-and
their written programs-into tangible
The objective of the program is to
reduce Federal employee injuries and
costs 30 percent by 1970.
The major cause of death in the
Federal service is motor vehicle
accidents. Government vehicles cover
nearly 23/4-billion miles annually.
Commenting on this, the Pres-
ident said in part: "We must look
more carefully at both the drivers
and the vehicles they operate . ."

August 26 for a scheduled 8-night
run; August 26-September 4.
"Kiss Me, Kate" ran for a total of
1,077 performances on Broadway
from December 30, 1948, until
July 28, 1951, and ranks seventh
among musicals that have had
lengthy runs. It was one of the few
American musicals to become a top
hit in different languages at the
Turkish National Theatre and as
"Kismi Keite" in Japan.
The leading local talents on the
Canal Zone have been assembled
to assure theatergoers outstanding
entertainment in the Cristobal Little
Theatre version of the smash hit.
Surse Pierpoint is the director and
Norman Slade will serve as musical
director. Wylcia Wilkins is the
choral director and Andy Lim is
handling the choreography.

Animal Hospital

Opens This Month

On Atlantic Side
A new animal quarantine station-
hospital, the first of its kind to be
located on the Atlantic side of the
Canal Zone, will be opened for busi-
ness in August 15 in two of the
buildings which formed part of the
former Mindi Dairy complex.
The new facility will be under the
supervision of Dr. Paul H. Dowell,
former manager of the Mindi Dairy
Farm and presently on the staff of
the Division of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Dowell will be assisted by five
former employees of Mindi Dairy
and one other who previously worked
with Dr. Dowell.
The new unit will handle medical
and surgical cases of both small and
large animals. In fact, it will be the
only animal hospital in the Canal
Zone equipped to care for large
animals such as horses and cows.
It will serve as a quarantine station
for stray dogs or cats and for pets of
Atlantic side Canal Zone residents
being brought to the Canal Zone
from other countries. Animals that
have bitten persons must be kept
under observation for 10 days. These
will now be kept in the new facility
instead of being sent by train to the
quarantine station in Corozal.
The Mindf Animal Quarantine
Station-Hospital will be modernly
equipped and have space for 45
animals. One building is the hospital
and clinic; the other will house
quarantined animals.

Maj. Bob Wright of the 8th Spe-
cial Forces portrays the lead role of
Fred Graham, the somewhat egotis-
tical director of "Taming Of The
Shrew" who also has the lead role
in that show. The story of "Kiss
Me, Kate" deals with an off-Broad-
way theater group producing the
Shakespearean classic.
In the "Shrew" part of "Kiss Me,
Kate" Bob is Petruccio and his
glamorous co-star is the hard-to-
handle Lilli Vanessi, played by Jeri
Meeker. There are many strange
goings-on between the two that
Shakespeare never wrote in the
"Shrew." The plot is further com-
pliated by a love affair that springs
up backstage between two younger
members of the cast, Bill Calchoun,
played by Jerry Lee and Lois Lane,
ably portrayed by Barbara Silva.
In the "Shrew" part of the show,
they are Lucention and Bianca.
These four lead roles in "Kiss Me,
Kate" are all excellent vocalists,
guaranteed to thrill the music-loving
Isthmian theatergoers. There are 17
songs by the famous Cole Porter in-
cluding: "So In Love," "Why Can't
You Behave," "Wunderbar," "We
Open In Venice," "Always True To
You In My Fashion," and "Too
Darn Hot."
The plot gets even more hilarious
with the appearance of a couple of
gangsters set on collecting a gam-
bling debt. The two gangsters, in
order to keep a close eye on their
"customers" and collect the debt, join
the show. They are played by Dom
Fortunato and Les Rutledge. Their
hiiinks are featured by their singing
of "Brush Up Your Shakespeare."
The grand finale, highlighted by
some of the finest scenery ever
assembled for a local performance,
includes the singing of "Kiss Me,
Kate" and the romantic response
from Kate after the "Shrew" has
been tamed.
Reservations may be made by call-
ing any of the following numbers:
Cristobal 3-1916, 3-1833, or 3-2530,
evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30

August 12, 1966


The JWB Armed Forces Service
Center will sponsor an exhibit of
drawings and paintings by Kathleen
Conn at the Jewish Welfare Board
Armed Forces Service Center in
The exhibit will be formally
inaugurated at a reception on Sun-
day, August 14, at 4 p.m., and will
be open to the public following the
reception until September 10.
A native New Yorker, Mrs. Conn
elected art studies in her Yonkers
high school. However, formal art
study was put aside while she pur-
sued her B.S. in physics at St. Johns'
University, New York, and later
during graduate studies in biophysics
at the University of Rochester
Medical Center.
Now in Panama with her husband,
Capt. Coulson A. Conn, U.S. Army
Medical Corps, stationed with the
3d Civil Affairs Detachment at Fort
Clayton, Mrs. Conn ha resumed her
art efforts. The pieces on exhibit
represent her most recent work em-
ploying a wide variety of media and
subject types.
This September Mrs. Conn begins
teaching Chemistry Laboratory and
Statistics as a part-time instructor at
Canal Zone College.

New Tug
(Continued from p. 1)
after a rough sea voyage. Rowe, who
rode down aboard the tug, said she
rolled through 40 degrees but proved
to be completely seaworthy.
Captain Prince said of the Rod-
man: "This is a tremendous perform-
ing tug that will be a great asset to
the Panama Canal in its mission of
transiting larger ships safely through
the Canal." He pointed out that "the
rapidly increasing number of larger
ships which are making our old low-
power tugs obsolete is the jus-
tification for the Hugh Rodman."
During the acceptance trials, the
vessel proved that it can reverse from
full ahead to full astern in 10 seconds
which Captain Prince said is an
outstanding and highly desirable
In the acceptance trials July 27,
the vessel exerted a 70,000-pound
bollard pull forward and 46,000
pounds astern. Both figures are
much higher than any other tug in
the Panama Canal fleet. Captain
Prince noted that the advanced
underwater hull design is the key
to her ability to outperform other
tugs with larger engines.

C.Z. Scouts

Will Cruise

To Equator
Highlighting the scout summer
activities of the Canal Zone Boy
Scouts of America is a 5-day cruise
to the Equator. Approximately 40
explorers or senior scouts will make
the 540-mile trip aboard a U.S. Navy
Landing Ship Tank (LST), the
Dodge County, leaving on August 22
and returning August 26. A stop at
Las Perlas Islands is planned for the
return trip to the Canal Zone.
The explorers will have a sailor
as a "buddy" on the cruise and do
everything the sailor does. They will
stand watch, be radio operators,
enginemen, and perform all other
duties aboard the ship. By rotating
"buddies" frequently during the
5-day cruise, the boys will have
an opportunity to learn all the
operations on the LST.
As they cross the Equator for the
first time the explorers will be
initiated from polliwogs to shellbacks
in the traditional ceremony held at
sea and will receive certificates of
the initiation.
Explorer or senior scouts inter-
ested in the cruise may contact Com-
mander Klingberg (telephone: Office,
88-2462; Home, 88-2393).


Mrs. Ida McDade, Supervisor of the Physical Examination Center, Coco Solo Hospital, and Cecil Wilmot,
Industrial Hygiene Technician,, receive 20-year safety awards and handshakes from Dr. D. H. Robinson, Chief
of the Industrial Health Branch.

Legion of Merit

Is Awarded to

Colonel Pickering
Col. Ellis E. Pickering, who de-
parted the Isthmus last month after
serving as Panama Canal Engineer-
ing and Construction Director for
2 years, has been awarded the
Legion of Merit for his work here.
He was honored for "exception-
ally meritorious service from June
1964 to July 1966," according to a
letter sent to Pickering by Adj. Gen.
Robert D. Thayer. General Thayer
added that the commanding general
of the 6th United States Army, Pre-
sidio of San Francisco, has been re-
quested to arrange for presentation of
the decoration to Colonel Pickering
with appropriate ceremony.
Colonel Pickering was recom-
mended for the decoration by Gov.
Robert J. Fleming, Jr. He retired
from the Army after leaving the
Canal Zone and is now making his
home in California.

Illegal Radio


Being Watched
Military authorities at Quarry
Heights who administer and enforce
radio regulations in the Canal Zone
have issued a warning that certain
illegal radio operations on the Cit-
izens Band frequencies are under
strict surveillance.
A few stations are using the
11-meter Citizens Band with unli-
censed, deceptive call signs to avoid
identification while carrying on
unauthorized communications.
The Communications and Elec-
tronics Directorate of the United
States Southern Command reports
that these illegal transmissions are
causing interference with normal Cit-
izens Band communications and with
some television, high fidelity, and
telephone installations.
They also pose a serious threat to
the orderly management of radio
frequencies by using unlicensed call
signs that cannot be readily iden-
tified and contacted when their inter-
ference extends to vital military
radio circuits.
Radio monitors at Quarry Heights
are now using new technical equip-
ment to locate the offending stations
so they can be identified and proper
action taken.
There are some 200 licensed Cit-
izens Band operators in the Canal
Zone and the authorities have noted
that this worthwhile program is now
being jeopardized by the illegal
actions of a minority of persons.
The Citizens Band provides short
range-usually up to 10 miles-radio
voice communications for family or
business use. Licenses are required
to transmit on this band but no tech-
nical training is required. Trans-
mitters and receivers used on the
Citizens Band are frequently in-
stalled in family cars, boats, and in

El Program Mision Seguridad-70

Evito Muchos Accidentes en 1965

La participaci6n del Canal de Pa-

contribuy6 sustancialmente a la re-
ducci6n en general en lesiones cau-
santes de incapacidad a empleados

accidents en el Gobierno Federal
de 4.3 por ciento indicada por el
S-ecretario de Trabajo Willard Wirtz,
en un informed al Presidente Johnson
sobre el progress del Programa
Misi6n Seguridad-70.
Gran part del mejoramiento ha-

bido en la Zona del Canal se debe
al mayor adiestramiento de trabaja-
dores y supervisors que brindaron
durante 1965 miembros del personal
del ramo de seguridad. Se dio cast
12.000 horas de adiestramiento y se
proyectaron peliculas ante grupos
que llegaron a un total de mas de

W. .
Sra. Ursula Thompson

La Sra. Ursula Thompson, de
Balboa, colecciona honors escolAs-
ticos, de la misma manera que otras
personas coleccionan monedas.
Madre de 13 hijos y abuela de 2,
al graduarse en junior de 1965 en la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal,
pronunci6 el discurso de despedida
a nombre de sus compafieros y ahora,
acaba de ganarse una beca para no
resident en la Universidad del Es-
tado de Louisiana, en Baton Rouge,
donde asiste a los cursos de verano.
Ello represent un gran honor para
la Sra. Thompscn, ya que la Univer-
sidad del Estado de Louisiana s6lo
tiene una pequefia cuota de tales
becas para estudiantes no residents
y se reciben muchisimas solicitudes
de parte de estudiantes de otros
Esta beca sufragari los gastos de
educaci6n de la Sra. Thompson en
calidad de no resident. AdemAs,
fue seleccionada por la administra-
ci6n de la misma universidad para
una posici6n como Consejera Gra-
duada en la Residencia de Mujeres.
Normalmente, esta posici6n es de-
sempefiada por un estudiante gra-
duado, pero la Sra. Thompson fue
escogida por su sobresaliente indice
acad6mioo, su madurez y su
La Sra. Thompson, esposa de

Zona del Canal se le otorg6 la Me-

dalla Thatcher, que el Honorable
Maurice H. Thatcher da anualmente

liente en sus studios y comporta-
miento. La Sra. Thompson hizo un

Educaci6n Secundaria.
En la Universidad de la Zona del
Canal, la Sra. Thompson hizo estu-
dios superiors de espafiol y en 1965,
obtuvo su primer titulo en educaci6n
Para ella no era problema tender
15 personas en la casa y sacar "A" en
todas las asignaturas. La Sra. Thomp-
son dijo una vez que todo estriba en
formarse un plan familiar. Cada hijo
tiene su tarea; cada uno hace su tra-
bajo a la hora asignada por un
horario familiar.
Entre classes, dijo la Sra. Thomp-
son, ella visitaba su hogar en la Calle
Plank, de Balboa, que no le quedaba
muy lejos de la escuela.
Ponia una carga de ropa en la
lavadora, o una cacerola en la estufa,
quizAs ayudaba a uno o dos de los
mis pequefios en sus tareas escola-
res y regresaba a classes. Tomaba la
pesada carga de 21 cr6ditos semes-
tre, lo que se le permiti6 por sus
magnificas notas.
Los hijos de los esposos Thomp-
son son: Ruth, ahora Sra. de Charles
Goheen, de Huntington, Virginia
Occidental, madre de un nifio y una
nifia; Robert, de 20 arios, miembro
del personal de la Piscina de Balboa
durante el present verano; George,
que estudia para sacerdote en Prince-
ton, Nueva Jersey; Mary, graduanda
en la Escuela Secundaria de Balboa;
John, que sigue las huellas de su
hermano, estudia para sacerdote en
Goshen, Nueva York; Florence, estA
en segundo afio en la Escuela Se-
cundaria de Balboa; Charles y Paul,
estan en octavo y septimo grado, res-
pectivamente, en la Escuela Inter-
media de Curundi; otros cinco hijos
estan en la Escuela Primaria de Bal-
boa, y son: Edward, en sexto grado;
Agnes, quinto grado; Michael, tercer
grado; Edna, segundo grado y
Margaret, primer grado.

capacidad menos que el afio anterior.
El President dijo en una decla-
raci6n: "Estamos complacidos con
estos resultados. Pero debemos se-
guir presionando para cumplir con
nuestros fines a largo plazo. Los acci-
dentes cuestan todavia al Gobierno
unos $200 millones al afio ademAs
de indecibles sufrimientos humans.
Los jefes de agencies deben ahora
traducir sus declaraciones de resolu-
ci6n, y sus programs escritos, en
resultados tangibles".
El objetivo del program es redu-
cir las lesiones a empleados Federa-
les y sus costs, en un 30 por ciento,
para 1970.
La mayor causa de muerte en el
servicio Federal son los accidents
de vehiculos a motor. Los vehiculos
del Gobierno recorren anualmente
2.750 millones de millas.
Refiri6ndose a esto, el Presidente
declar6: "Debemos fijarnos con mis
cuidado en los conductores y en
los vehiculos que ellos conducen.
Nuestros conductores deben ser se-
leccionados cuidadosamente, proba-
dos concienzudamente y adiestrados
apropiadamente. Nuestros vehiculos
deben cumplir con las mis altas
normas de seguridad y mantenerse
en la mejor condici6n".

Nuevo y Poderoso Remolcador . .

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
cador daba bandazos de 40 grades
pero que es sumamente marinero.
El CapitAn Prince calific6 al Rod-
man como "un remolcador de fan-
tistico funcionamiento que sera de
gran valor para el Canal de Panama
en la tarea de Ilevar naves mayores
a trav6s del Canal". Sefialo6 que "el
numero rapidamente creciente de
naves mayores que estan convir-
tiendo en obsoletos nuestros viejos
remolcadores de menor fuerza, es la
justificaci6n para el haber adquirido
al Hugh Rodman".
Durante las pruebas previas a la
aceptaci6n, la embarcaci6n demostr6
que puede cambiar de toda march
adelante, en 10 segundos, a toda
march atrAs, lo cual calific6 el
Capitin Prince como caracteristica
sumamente deseable.
Durante las pruebas, el 27 de

julio, la embarcaci6n desarroll6
70.000 libras de tracci6n hacia ade-
lante y 46.000 en tracci6n hacia
atrAs. Ambas cifras son much mas
altas que las de cualquier otro re-
molcador en la flota del Canal de
PanamA. El Capitin Prince sefial6
que el disefio de las parties de su
casco que estAn bajo del agua es lo
que causa que el Hugh Rodman sea
superior a otros remolcadores dota-
dos de mAquinas mas grandes.

En 1631, la Villa de Los Santos,
o Cubita, era el mayor pueblo de
espaholes de la costa del Mar del Sur;
producia 8,000 fanegas de maiz, lo
que era la mayor producci6n de Pa-
namd. El maiz servia para sustentar
las recuas de mulas que hacian el
transport a Portobelo y los negros
que andaban con dichas recuas. La
Villa de Los Santos o Cubita tertia
la mayor crla de ganado vacuno.
