Gift of the Panama Canal Museum

Vol. V, No. 19 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, October 28, 1966


R. P. Indepe

Congratulations to the Republic of
Panama on the 63d Anniversary of its
independence have been extended by
Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr. The Governor urged residents
of the Canal Zone to recognize the
importance of this day in the Republic
and urged participation in observance
of the November 3d holiday.
Citizens of the United States and
Panama both enjoy a democratic form
of government, Governor Fleming
pointed out. "This is a common bond
of understanding, for Panama and the
United States continue to build
prosperity and enjoy progress under
freedom," Governor Fleming said.

ndence Day

SNov. 3
The Governor recognized the vital
and historic part Panamanians have
played in the successful operation and
maintenance of the Panama Canal,
and he noted that the two nations,
working side by side, participate in
one of the most efficient enterprises
in the world.
The hopes for continued progress
and a better life are aspirations shared
by Panama and the United States,
Governor Fleming added. He said
that November 3 is a day on which the
history of Panama should be appre-
ciated and he extended to the Repub-
lic his best wishes on the anniversary
of its birth.

Papama Canal Trieasurer Joseph C. Turner signing a few of the 15,000
Panama Canal paychecks.


Man With a Golden Hand...

To Panama Canal employees Joseph
C. Turner, who plans to retire in
December, is about the most im-
portant person in the organization.
He signs the paychecks.
This is part of his job as Treasurer
of the Panama Canal, a position
created in 1948, a short time before
the business activities of the Panama
Canal and the Panama Railroad were
completely reorganized and con-
solidated. Previously, employees were
paid by pay vouchers which were
cashed by the paymaster.
When the Panama Canal began to
pay its employees with U.S. Treasury
checks, the first man to sign them was
Wendell Greene, the first Panama
Canal Treasurer. Since 1952, it has
been Turner's "John Henry" plus
that of the employee, of course, that
makes the paycheck negotiable in
any bank in the Canal Zone, Panama,
or the United States.
All 15,000 or more paychecks
must be signed every 2 weeks, but
the writer's cramp has been taken out
of the process by use of a signature
plate inserted in a check-signing
machine. The plate is locked up for
safekeeping when it is not in use.
The Treasurer has a number of
other duties, among them responsibi-
lity for the collection, custody and
disbursement of funds on the Isth-
mus; administration of accounts with
local banks; administration of nar-
cotics laws and regulations relating to
registration for narcotics control and
collection of certain taxes.
Turner has been connected with
treasury work ever since 1934, when
he was employed as a paymaster clerk
in the former Accounting Depart-
ment. He became Assistant Pay-

master in 1945 and was Assistant
Treasurer from 1948 to 1952.
He is married to the former Alice
McIntosh of Hattiesburg, Miss., who
will resign her position as a librarian
at the main Canal Zone Library. They
have a son now in the U.S. Army and
a daughter who is married to Capt.
F. A. Blesse, also in Army service,
now on duty in Viet Nam.
The Turners plan to leave the Isth-
mus early in December and make
their home in Hattiesburg. In the
future, Turner expects to have no
duty more arduous than signing his
own retirement checks.




A full-scale campaign entitled
"Operation Cleanup" has been
announced for the month of Novem-
ber to aid Government agencies in
complying with President Johnson's
instructions on cost reduction in
procurement, supply and property
"Operation Cleanup" is designed to
provide a positive and expeditious
means for identifying idle and
needed property and supplies and
to take prompt action to place such
material in use where it is most
The "house-cleaning" campaign
will produce a review of equipment
which has been assigned to individuals
or to organizations in the agencies;
require that all items of equipment
and supplies not being used effec-
tively be returned to stock or placed
in pools from which they can be
assigned as needed; and release as
excess those items which are not
The campaign will be accomplished
by "walk-throughs" of buildings.
The Superintendent of the Housing
Branch, Community Services Divi-
sion, will be responsible for organizing
and conducting the "walk-through" of
buildings to ascertain which are
unneeded or excess items and arrange
for their reassignment or removal.

Future Teachers To Have Roles

In Education Week Observance

The Future Teachers of America
Club at Balboa High School, sponsor-
ing a teaching program now in its
third year at the school, will give
parents and friends an opportunity to
observe them at work with elemen-
tary school children during National
Education Week November 6-10.
Thirty-nine girls are enrolled in the
club program, which is a service
project in cooperation with the teach-
ers at Balboa Elementary School.
The club members volunteered for
the program, with the major objective
of finding out, while in high school,
if they would be interested in a
teaching career.
Many of the students go to the
Balboa Elementary School during
their scheduled study periods. Others
go during their lunch period, and
some of the students find this oppor-
tunity so challenging that they offer
to participate after their own school
hours and while the elementary school
is still in session.
The girls' primary responsibilities
include arranging bulletin boards,
reading stories to the class, filing
material for the teacher, organizing a
library, and book checks at the end
of school. They listen to pupils' book
reports for the teachers, learn to
operate a ditto machine, type extra
material for the teachers, grade work-
books, help the teachers give tests,
and also help with some of the
children's personal problems.
"This is an excellent program,"
said Mrs. Helen Wallace, a fourth

Damage, Neglect of Quarters

May Prove Costly to Occupant

A management survey of the
Maintenance Work Branch has
shown that malicious damage and
neglect of Panama Canal quarters
by occupants is a frequent occur-
rence, requiring the Housing Divi-
sion to accomplish extensive re-
pairs that otherwise would not be
This is not a new development,
but it is necessary to remind occu-
pants concerning the necessity of
avoiding damage or unnecessary ex-
pense in quarters because of care-
less housekeeping cr indifference.
When a request for housing main-
tenance follows negligence, careless-
ness, or malicious damage by t'
housing occupant, or occupants the
cost of the repairs is to be billed to
the occupant. The same applies
when an occupant transfers or
vacates quarters.
Panama Canal quarters, as a rule,
are completely cleaned and more
often than not are painted prior to
occupancy. The Housing Branch,
not unreasonably, expects the quar-
ters to be in clean and undamaged
condition when an occupant moves.

Special Care Needed
In the new modern quarters, the
cabinets and formica-topped coun-
ters require particular care, for when
the formica top is damaged the
repair work is expensive and, mere-
over, the formica is difficult to
match. A hot skillet or pan, moved
from stove to the formica-topped
counter, can burn a hole right
through the formica, the housing
officials report.
Unnecessary holes in masonry
walls, damage to tiled floors, and
unauthorized alterations are listed

Exhibit Scheduled

At Fair in Colon
Part of the Panama Canal fair
exhibit will be shown at the fair
scheduled for November 3-6 at Cole-
gio San Jos6 in Colon.
Displayed for the first time at
Bocas del Toro in a mid-September

among the items causing damage to
quarters. Sharp heels, carelessly
placed furniture, and furniture with
sharp points do the greatest damage
to tile. It will be necessary that
occupants consider the probable re-
pairs if they cause such damage.
Flower beds can cause damage to
property, unless special care is taken
in the garden plan. The damage
occurs when flower beds are built up
a bit higher than the ground floor
level of the house. When the plants
are soaked with water, the water
seeps through the concrete blocks
and subsequently, loosen the tile.
The Housing Branch officials espe-
cially have been asking that flower
beds are not built above the ground
floor level of the house. Shrubbery
growing against the building leads
to rot and termite infestation.

Damage from Drips?
Improperly installed or operated
air conditioners do their share in
property damage. The drip from
such air conditioners damages walls
and roofs. Excessive cold causes
condensation affecting paint, and
mildew conditions become serious.
In housing where screened doors
are used, property damage is often
done by children who lean against
the screens, pushing them out.
Then there have been instances
where an occupant found himself
locked out and proceeded to break
the screen and lock in order to get
into the house.
In some vacated quarters, addi-
tional work is required because of
excessive grime, trash, and accumu-
lated dust the occupant had made
no ellort to remove. Some occupants,
the Housing Branch officials report,
never clean behind the stove. S"ap
and dirt in steel cabinets cause rust
to form, and water deposits cause
rot, which ordinary good house-
keeping care could have averted.

many of the repairs now being done
would not be required, the Housing
officials stated.

Real Emergency?
When is an emergency call for
housing maintenance net an emer-
In order to prevent costly and
unnecessary incidence of emer-
gency calls, the Community Service
Division has defined emergency calls
in the three following categories:
a. When the situation is one which
will result in immediate damage to
b. When the situation constitutes
a hazard to safety, health or sanita-
c. When an essential utility facil-
ity is inoperable and no substitute
is available.
Maintenance calls in all categories
other than those listed above will be
processed as soon as possible. But-
when emergency overtime calls are
answered and work is accomplished
at the request of the occupant with-
out coming within one of the
categories listed the occupant will be
billed for the work.
For instance, the Cnmmunity
Service Division officials point out, a
complete sink stoppage or a toilet
overflowing would be considered an
emergency. But a dripping faucet,
while annoying, or a slightly leaky
roof where no great damage is being
done are not classified as warranting
an emergency call and will be re-
paired by the Maintenance Work
Branch as soon as possible after
being reported.

Gente en la Noticia

Egbert E. Turpin, es oficinista en la
Secci6n de Correspondencia en la
Unidad de Correos situada en el Edi-
ficio de Administraci6n de Balboa
Heights. Inici6 su servicio con el
Canal de PanamA en Mayo de 1937
y ya lleva 29 afios de servicios inin-
terrumpidos. Naci6 en Col6n el 8 de
noviembre de 1916. Sus studios los
hizo en la Escuela Intermedia de
La Boca, en la Zona del Canal y ac-
tualmente reside en el sector de Rio
Abajo, en la ciudad de PanamA. El
Sr. Turpin jamAs se ha casado. Dice
sonriendo: "Soy soltero empedernido,
aunque a veces pienso si no seria
mejor el haberme casado". Turpin
es anglicano y cumple sus deberes re-
ligiosos en la Iglesia de San Crist6bal,
en Rio Abajo. En su trabajo es reco-
nocido como el mAs expert empaque-
tador de la secci6n. Cuando 61 empa-
queta algo, los del correo central
jamAs protestan. Turpin ha trabajado
toda su vida con el Canal de Pana-
mA. Inici6 su servicio con el Canal,
en el viejo Hospital Anc6n, hoy Hos-
pital Gorgas, donde permaneci6 hasta
1940, de alli lo trasladaron al Edifi-
cio de Administraci6n, donde ha per-
maneeido hasta el dia de hoy. Lo que
mis le gusta en sus moments libres
es dedicarse a la agriculture en su
finca. "La tierra es muy buena y me
ayuda mi poquito", dice convencido
"pero hay que trabajarla duro y lu-
char contra el peor enemigo del agri-
ciltor: las arrieras". La condecora-
ci6n que mAs desea es conseguir la
de 30 afios de servicios.

Wilfred A. Pond es oficinista de correspondencia, en la Unidad de Correos
situada en el Edificio de Administraci6n, en Balboa Heights. Desde 1939,
cuando empez6 a trabajar con el Canal de PanamA, jamAs se ha separado de
la organizaci6n. Naci6 en la ciudad de Panama el 27 de junio de 1920. Inici6
sus studios en la Escuela Intermedia de La Boca, pero luego sigui6 sus
studios secundarios en el Instituto Panamericano de la ciudad de PanamA,
donde se gradu6 de Bachiller, en 1940. "Fueron aiios bastante duros" dice
el Sr. Pond teniaa que trabajar de noche, para poder pagar por mis studios.
Pero me siento satisfecho". Reside en la comunidad de Paraiso, en ]a Zona
del Canal, en uni6n de su esposa Myrtle Smith de Pond, con quien lleva
23 afios de casado. Tienen un hijo, Humberto Pond, de 14 afios, que cursa
el noveno grado en la Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso, y que desea estudiar
medicine. "Su universidad preferida es la de Howard", dice el Sr. Pond.
Pond es miembro prominent de la feligresia de la Iglesia de St. Alban, en
Paraiso. Dice que a su edad a uno nada mAs que le gusta ver los deportes
y que el favorite suyo es el beisbol. En las grades ligas su equipo es el de
los Gigantes de San Francisco y en la Liga Profesional de Panamt, el Cerveza
Balboa. Los peloteros mejores para 61l son Willie Mays, en las grandes ligas
y H6ctor L6pez, tanto en Estados Unidos como en PanamA. Custa much de
leer novelas de detectives. Conoce varias poblaciones del Interior, pero las
que mas le gustaron fucron Santiago, Chitr6 y Oc6. "Especialmente Chitr6",
dice "la gente de alli es tan gentil y amistosa". Lo que mAs desca es poder
trabajar unos 10 afios mas, para poder ver a su hijo convertido en todo un
Sefior Doctor. Cuarda muy huenos recuerdos de uno de los antiguos funcio-
narios del Canal de Panamni: el Sr. Cambridge M. Lupfer, quien fue Secre-
tario Ejecutivo Ayudante de la Oficina del Cobernador. "Era una gran per-
sona", dice el Sr. Pond, "para el no habia grandes ni chiquitos. A todas las
personas las trataba con igual caballerosidad".
