"ACT NOW," OFFICIALS ADVISE


Citizenship Certificate


Program in Full Swing


The Citizenship Certificate Assist-
ance Program is in full swing, but
those who want to have the certifi-
cate before vacation time should act


Chase, Dailey

Promoted in

Electrical Unit
C. W. Chase has been appointed
Assistant Electrical Engineer in the
Electrical Division after having held
the dual title of Assistant Electrical
Engineer and Chief, Electrical Work
Branch since 1957. Separation of the
two positions is brought about by
increased responsibilities and work
loads in the expansion of the elec-
trical power distribution system.
E. 0. Dailey has been promoted to
the position of Chief, Electrical Work
Branch.
In his new job, Chase will super-
vise the Electrical Division's tech-
nical staff, which handles technical
studies, record keeping, planning,
and budgeting, and will head up the
Division's safety program, as well as
serving as deputy to the Electrical
Engineer.
Born in Portsmouth, R.I., Chase
received a degree in Electrical Engi-
neering from Massachusetts Institute
of Technology and was first employed
by the Panama Canal as Recorder in
August 1934. Since that time he has
been promoted to increasingly more
responsible positions.
During his service with the Pan-
ama Canal organization Chase has
been active in civic affairs and is a
past president of the Pacific Civic
Council.
Dailey was born in Roggen, Colo.,
but grew up on the Isthmus. He
graduated from Tulane University
with a degree in Mechanical-Elec-
trical Engineering. He was first em-
ployed by the Panama Canal in 1930
and in March 1934 he too became
a Recorder. Transfers to other units
within the Canal Company and pro-
motions followed and in 1950 he was
promoted to Supervisor, Balboa Field
Office.
Participating in activities outside
his regular employment, he has
supervised the use of the telescope
and facilities at Miraflores Observa-
tory, and has been a teacher of
astronomy in the Canal Zone College
and Florida State University.


now, officials in charge of the
program said this week.
B. G. Sanders, Jr., Canal Zone
Customs Chief and administrator of
the program, said 571 applications
have been distributed and 15 com-
pleted and forwarded to the Immigra-
tion and Naturalization Service office
in New Orleans.
There have been 105 personal
visits to the Balboa office for informa-
tion, and 33 to the Cristobal office.
Another 73 persons telephoned the
Balboa office, with 9 calls for in-
formation received in Cristobal,
Sanders reported.
The program was organized after
a law was passed permitting issuance
of the certificates in the Canal Zone.
Two offices were set up to handle the
requests for applications and informa-
tion at Balboa Heights and Cristobal.
In Balboa Heights, Mrs. Lois
Thomas is at the Community Services
Division Building on Roosevelt Ave-
nue and may be reached by telephone
at Balboa 4202. In Cristobal, Mrs.
Mary Cronan is at the Cristobal
Customs Office in the Administration
Building and may be called at Cristo-
bal 2138. Office hours are 7 to noon
and 1 to 4 p.m.
The time to get an application
started is now, Sanders said, because
the INS in the States will send men
for the final required interview only
when there are enough applicants to
justify sending personnel here for a
30-day stay. And, he said, these men
will use their time to interview those
who have completed their applica-
tions and are ready for interviewing.
Time is required to process the ap-
plications, he added, and the sooner
the application is sent to New Or-
leans, the better.
The two offices here will furnish
applications, information, and will
forward completed applications to
New Orleans, where, after a review,
the applicant will be notified by New
Orleans of an interview appointment
in the Canal Zone. The notification
will have on it the time and place of
the appointment.
An estimated 3,000 persons in the
Canal Zone and Panama are eligible
to apply for the certificate, which is
proof of U.S. citizenship. The service,
available to all U.S.-citizens, is ex-
pected to aid many who reside in
the Republic of Panama and nearby
countries, or who are with the
U.S. military in the Canal Zone.


Supervisor of CZC Dormitory

Started Teaching Here in '07
Mrs. Ora M. Ewing taught her there became ill. Then she was trans-
first school on the Isthmus in 1907- ferred to Las Cascadas, which meant


and has been surrounded by young
folks ever since. At present she is
women's dormitory supervisor at the
Canal Zone College, La Boca. Prior
to this assignment, she was men's
dormitory housemother for some
23 years.
She was born in Glenville, W. Va.,
and is a graduate of the Glenville
State Normal School. Her husband
now deceased, was also of West
Virginia and his first position was in
Col. William C. Gorgas' office.
Mrs. Ewing hadn't really planned
to teach on the Isthmus, but there
was a great need for teachers and
nurses. Her first teaching assignment
was in Empire when the teacher


that she had to ride the 7 a.m. train
from Ancon each morning, and back
again in the evening.
Mr. Ewing's first salary at the old
Ancon Hospital, where he was em-
ployed, was $100 a month and Mrs.
Ewing was paid $90 a month as
a teacher.
Their home was a frame house,
which she said was cooler than the
present-day Canal Zone homes. Cook-
ing was done on a coal and wood-
burning stove and grocery shopping
was a long-distance affair. Mrs.
Ewing recalled that she would send
her commissary coupon book and
order by train to Cristobal to be

the Community Services Building on Roosevelt Avenue.

A concrete "blueprint"-Marine Bureau and Industrial Division officials didn't
have to guess about layout dimensions of a proposed new boarding officer
launch for the Port Captain, Balboa. They're shown checking a full-scale
"mock up" of the craft drawn on a dock at the Industrial Division, Mount
Hope. With it, they could walk around in actual dimensions and judge more
accurately where modifications for improvement could be made than would
have been possible simply checking blueprints. Left to right are: Capt.
Richard C. Sergeant, Port Captain, Balboa; Capt. Donald A. Dertein, chief,

Delayed Holiday Greetings

Tell of Events in Vietnam


Delayed New Year's greetings,
drafted on New Year's Day in Da
Nang, South Vietnam, are being re-
ceived by friends on the Isthmus from
Elmer B. Stevens, former Chief of
the Panama Canal's Structural Branch
and Resident Engineer for the
Thatcher Ferry Bridge Project when
he retired from Canal service on
January 31, 1963.
On his return to the United States
last month, he was met by Mrs.
Stevens in San Francisco and they
are now at their home in Ocala, Fla.
Stevens was employed by the firm


of Metcalf & Eddy of Boston, Mass.,
on a contract with the U.S. Navy to
furnish technical personnel for the
Public Works Department of the
Naval Support Activity in Da Nang.
He gives three answers to the ques-
tion "Why did I go?" In the first
place, he says, "an opportunity was
offered to gain first-hand information
on one of the most important prob-
lems of our time, on which the cit-
izens of our country appear to be
divided right down the middle . .

Horseback riding was popular, too,
and there were special outings plan-
ned by the Ancon Amusement Asso-
ciation. The party would travel by
chartered boat, often as far as Pan-
ama's Las Perlas Islands, and every-
one would be dressed, ever to hats
and gloves. Bikinis and mini-skirts
were still half-a-century in the future.
Mrs. Ewing was one of those who


They had planned to go to the
States on vacation when World
War II caused a change in their plans,
and then the Canal Zone Schools
Division asked Mrs. Ewing to take
the -position of housemother for
1 year. That year has extended to the
present. Since she has been house-
mother, she has moved three times
with the dormitory. The first, for


made the first transit of the Panama boys, was located at the site of the
Canal and she vividly remembers present Balboa Elementary School


how impressed she was on October
10, 1913, when President Woodrow
Wilson pushed a button in Washing-
ton and Gamboa dike was blown
up, Culebra Cut flooded and the
two oceans joined right before her
astonished eyes.
Vying for interest with that event,
though, was the visit of Alice Roose-
velt, daughter of President Theodore
Roosevelt, which was "the talk of
the town." Alice Roosevelt rode the
train and stood, like everyone else,
Mrs. Ewing recalls.
Mr. and Mrs. Ewing lived on the
hospital grounds until 1917 and then
moved to Ancon Boulevard.
With announcement of the Armi-
stice that ended World War I, Mrs.
Ewing's infectious delight at the good
news spread throughout the neigh-
borhood and she led an Armistice
Day march, people beating pots and
pans through Ancon and Balboa.
In 1936-37 they lived in an old
French house in Ancon and when
Mr. Ewing retired in 1940, went
to the Tivoli Guest House to reside.


20-Event Horse

from St. Mary's School, and the next
move was to the second floor of the

mitory for girls at Canal Zone College.
Mrs. Ewing, who was 81 in Jan-
uary, was decorated with an Amer-
ican Red Cross medal for record
American Red Cross service on the
Isthmus in the home service field.

She has two daughters, Mrs. Otto
Hausmann of Bella Vista, Panama
City, and Mrs. Virginia Ewing Stich
of Los Rios, medical librarian at

daughter, Ann Stich, a first-year
student at Canal Zone College.

Court Pamphlets

Provide Briefing

For Defendants

All defendants who appear in the
Canal Zone Magistrates' Courts, at
Balboa or Cristobal, now have a 5-
to 10-minute reading period before
court convenes. The reading material
is not the latest thriller, nor even one
of the daily newspapers. It is a four-
page pamphlet, two pages in English
and two in Spanish, with information
on rights of the defendant and proce-
dures of the court.
The pamphlets, the result of a
suggestion by Rex E. Beck, constable
at Balboa Magistrates' Court, made
their appearance this week, replacing
duplicator copies that had given out
since January. The defendant, after
reading the pamphlet, has a better
understanding of court procedures
and no longer is there a necessity for
the explanations that were given,
previously, prior to the hearing of a
complaint.
Judge John E. Deming of the
Balboa Court and Judge Charles A.
Garcia of the Cristobal Court con-
sulted and generally agreed on the
wording of the pamphlet. Psycho-
logically, they find, there is a resul-
tant good effect through apprising a
defendant of his rights. With greater
understanding of the court proce-
dures, the defendant tends to be more
at ease and, knowing his rights, is
able to concentrate on the charge,
accusation, or complaint.
Another major benefit is a speed-
up in court procedures, with elimina-
tion of the necessity for explanations
heretofore given in Spanish or
English.,

The true stories of outstanding
secret agents are told in The World's
Greatest Spies, by Charles Wighton.
No one knows who the first spy was,
but the Greek and Roman classics
and the Bible are full of spy stories
and Julius Caesar is credited with
inventing the first secret cipher. The
author briefly sketches the history of
espionage to World War I and then
recounts the stories of the great
modern spies.
Included are Hermann Lang who
stole the Norden bomb sight, Richard
Sorge, "Cicero," the atomic spies
Klaus Fuchs and Allan Nunn May,
Colonel Abel, the proficient Russian
who was exchanged for U-2 pilot

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


February 17, 1967


National Legion

Auxiliary Head

Will Visit Here
Mrs. A. J. Ryan, Sr., national
president of the American Legion
Auxiliary, who is arriving today
from Florida for a weekend visit,
will be guest of honor at a recep-
tion to be given Sunday by the
American Legion Auxiliary De-
partment of the Canal Zone in
the Roosevelt Room of the Tivoli
Guest House. Other entertainment
on both sides of the Isthmus also
is being planned during her stay.
Mrs. Ryan, who is spending
this year representing the Ameri-
can Legion Auxiliary in 53 depart-
ments and throughout the world,
has an outstanding record in local,
district and state offices which led
to her election as leader of the
Auxiliary's 900,000 members.


Apprentice-Learner

Test Application

Deadline Is Feb. 24
February 24 is the last day for per-
sons who wish to qualify for the
midyear apprentice and craft-learner
program to file their applications with
the Central Employment Office.
Applicants will be given a screen-
ing test and those who pass the
test will take a final examination
March 18. Those who passed the
examination last March and are on
the register of eligibles for Appren-
tice and Learner may compete again
with the hope of improving their
scores. They should report to the
CEO Office in Ancon or Cristobal to
make sure their names and addresses
are included on the notification list
for the examination.
The learnership, project conducted
by the Panama Canal Employee
Utilization and Development staff has
come a long way since it was
launched in November 1964 with
eight Panamanian learners. Today
there are 88 learners (36 craft learn-
ers and 52 non-craft learners). The
learnership program prepares young
men in the manual category at below
journeyman level, such as helpers to
craftsmen. It also supplies a screened
group of applicants for apprentice-
ships.
The apprenticeship program has
been in process since the construction
of the Canal. The program was ex-
panded in 1960 and since that time,
approximately 60 Panamanians and
50 U.S. citizens have graduated as
full-fledged journeymen. At the close
of the year there were 82 non-U.S.
citizens and 52 U.S. citizens em-
ployed under the 4-year apprentice
program.


Rhyne New


Probation


Officer
Harvey G. Rhyne, former Deputy
Probation Officer, has been appointed
Chief Probation Officer to succeed
Patrick J. Murphy, who left the
Isthmus last week to take a position
with the Portland, Oreg., Office of
the United States Probation Service.
The appointment of Rhyne was
announced shortly after Murphy's
departure by B. I. Everson, Civil
Affairs Director.
A native of Teague, Tex., Rhyne
spent 3 years in Balboa and Coco
Solo with the U.S. Marines and joined
the Canal organization in 1941 as a
lock watchman at Pedro Miguel
Locks. He transferred to the Canal
Zone Police Division the same year
and served at Ancon and Madden
Dam.
He was promoted to sergeant in
1948 and assigned to the Balboa
Detective Office in 1951. He was
promoted to the rank of lieutenant
in 1958.
Rhyne has been Deputy probation
and parole officer since 1963 and
acted as Chief Probation Officer on
occasions when Murphy was absent.


Azuero Fair
(Continued from p. 1)
and Sunday, February 25 and 26.
Jump time for the volunteer group,
all members of the U.S. Armed
Forces, will be 10 a.m.
The Army's Fair display includes
a demonstration of the equipment
used by these skydivers, plus a run

The U.S. Navy will furnish a cut-
away ship model, with personnel on
hand to explain the operation of the
ship. In addition, there will be a
photo display of Navy activities.
A selectrovision show will be fea-
tured in the Air Force exhibit, along
with an Air Force photo display. A
U.S. Information Service mobile unit
will run color movies on various sub-
jects each night of the fair, and
rounding out the United States pres-
entation will be a display of the
Alliance for Progress, emphasizing
progress in Panama.
The Azuero Fair stresses a theme
of progress in industry, agriculture
and commerce. Its livestock competi-
tion and judging is among the fore-
most in the Republic of Panama and
well worth seeing. The Fair has added
an extra day to its run this year, and
there are more exhibits, too. The fair
committee expects to see a record
set for attendance.

and just plain enthusiasts of nature
are the strangler fig, the plant which
attaches itself to the trunk of a sup-
porting plant and finally strangles it
to death; the vanilla orchid, source
of vanilla extract; the cannonball tree;
papyrus, the first source of paper.
In ancient times, the papyrus reed
was used to make boats, sails, mats,
cloth, and, above all, writing
materials.

a short visit to the Zoo with its wide
variety of tropical birds and animals.

Vietnam Report
(Continued from p. 1)
through the necessity of defensively
countering enemy propaganda,-while
it would have been more effective if
aggressively stated in the first place."
In the second place, to "learn the
truth about Vietnam." Finally, "our
family investment in Vietnam is
large."
The Stevens' oldest son, Jim, spent
a year there in 1963-64 during which
he flew no less than 414 missions in
his capacity as an Air Force pilot.
Their younger son, John, in his own
capacity as a Navy pilot assigned to
an aircraft carrier, received orders
early in 1966, while still in the Medi-
terranean area, to prepare for assign-
ment to Vietnam. He departed from
Jacksonville, Fla., in June 1966 and
spent the remainder of the year in
the activities over North Vietnam.
Stevens landed in Saigon on the
heels of a Buddhist uprising, which
resulted in a 3-day delay before trav-
elling to his post in Da Nang. "During
this period," he says, "I began the
process of becoming accustomed to
the sound of mortars and other gun-
fire in the distance, and to aircraft of
all types constantly in the air over-
head."
His work in Da Nang placed him
in charge, in engineering capacity, of
about 80 engineers, draftsman, and
surveyors. "Experience gained in
Panama," he says, "no doubt helped
me to establish relationships with en-
gineers and technicians of distant
lands that will endure for the rest of
my days. If I succeeded, in no matter
how small a way, to improve the pic-
ture of America before these people,
I have been rewarded beyond expec-
tations."
He praises the attitudes and accom-
plishments of the U.S. Armed Serv-
ices in this conflict, and speaks of the
efforts of dedicated thousands to help
and understand the Vietnamese
people, to "sell America" at its best,
and increase its stature in a misin-
formed and maladjusted area.
Christmas Eve in Da Nang brought
a surprise visit from John Stevens,
who flew to Da Nang from his carrier
in the Gulf of Tonkin despite the fact
that this was the third continuous day
of a monsoon downpour. "He turned
the prospective bleak Christmas into
one of the best I ever had and shall
never forget," the father wrote. "His
activities of the past 6 months, result-
ing in decorations beyond those for
routine number of missions, seemed
far away and unreal. It was easier to
remember nights around campfires on
the upper Chagres and Bayano back
in Panama, where the jungle was
friendly, and where the sounds of
the night were those of nature's own
creatures rather than the explosive
violence of mankind at war."

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Un Viejo Empleado del Canal


Ha Recorrido Mucho el Mundo


Todavia various amigos, residents
en el Istmo, de Elmer B. Stevens es-
tin recibiendo tarjetas de Afio Nuevo.
enviadas por 6ste desde Da Nang,
Viet Nam del Sur. El Sr. Stevens fue
anteriormente Jefe del Ramo de Es-
tructuras e Ingeniero Residente en el
proyecto del Puente Thatcher Ferry,
cuando se jubil6 del Canal el 31 de
enero de 1963.
De regreso a Estados Unidos el mes
pasado, fue recibido por su esposa en
San Francisco y resident ahora en su
casa de Ocala, Florida.
Tuvo la oportunidad de ir a Viet
Nam, por medio de un antiguo fun-
cionario de la empresa del Canal de
PanamA, Joseph Cooke, que tambibn
sirvi6 por un tiempo en Viet Nam.
El Sr. Stevens da tres razones que
lo indujeron a ir a Viet Nam. En pri-
mer lugar dice: "ello fue una gran
oportunidad para conseguir informa-
ci6n de primera mano sobre uno de
los problems mas importantes de
nuestro tiempo; en segundo lugar
porque "queria aprender la verdad
sobre Viet Nam", y finalmente, "por-
que la participaci6n de nuestra fami-
lia en Viet Nam es grande".
El hijo de Stevens, Jim, estuvo alli
por 2 ailos como piloto de la Fuerza
Area. El mis joven, John, es pilot
de la Armada en Viet Nam.
El Sr. Stevens trabaj6 en Da Nang
como ingeniero jefe a cargo de unos
80 ingenieros, dibujantes y top6gra-
fos. "La experiencia obtenida en Pa-
nama", dice, "sin duda me ayud6 ;
establecer amistad con ingenieros y
tecnicos de tierras lejanas, personas
que no olvidar6 por el resto de mis
dias. Si triunf6, no importa en que
proporci6n, en el meioramiento de la


H. Rhyne Nombrado

Official Probatorio

En la Zona del Canal
Harvey G. Rhyne, antiguo Sub-
oficial Probatorio, ha sido nombrado
Official Probatorio en reemplazo de
Patrick J. Murphy, quien dej6 el
Istmo la semana pasada para asumir
una posici6n en la Oficina de Port-
land, Oreg6n, del Servicio Proba-
torio de los Estados Unidos.
El nombramiento de Rhyne fue
anunciado poco despues de la partida
de Murphy, por B. I. Everson, Di-
rector de Asuntos Civiles.
Nacido en Teague, Tejas, Rhyne
pas6 3 afios en Balboa y Coco Solo
con la Infanteria de Marina de los
Estados Unidos y se uni6 a la empre-
sa del Canal en 1941, como sereno
de esclusa, en las Esclusas de Pedro
Miguel. Fue trasladado a la Divisi6n
de Policia de la Zona del Canal el

imagen de Estados Unidos ante estos
pueblos, he sido recompensado mas
alli de lo que esperaba". Alaba los
logros de las Fuerzas Armadas de Es-
tados Unidos en este conflict, y los
esfuerzos de miles por ayudar y en-
tender al pueblo vietnamita.
La vispera de Navidad, en Da
Nang, su hijo John Stevens le hizo
una visit de sorpresa, volando a
Da Nang desde su portaaviones esta-
cionado en el Golfo de Tonkin, a
pesar de que 6ste era el tercer dia
consecutive de un fuerte monz6n.
"Cambi6 una possible triste Navidad
por una de las mejores que haya te-
nido y que nunca olvidare", dice el
padre. Sus actividades en los pasados
6 meses en numerosas misiones pare-
cian irreales. Era mas facil recorder
las noches alrededor de fogatas en el
Chagres y el Bayano de PanamA,
donde la selva es amistosa, y donde
los ruidos de la noche son product
de la naturaleza misma y no de la
explosive violencia de la humanidad
en guerra".
Ahora, nuevamente en Ocala
Stevens recuerda sus pasadas expe-
riencias, content de haber regresado,
pero content tambi'n de haber ido.


Estas no son las instalaciones de un club de yates en un remanso de una de las tantas bellas ensenadas de la costa
panameiia. Es la toma de agua del sistema de acueducto para la ciudad de Col6n y el sector AtlAntico de la Zona
del Canal. Muy pocos de los residents del Istmo saben donde estA, asi que se lo vamos a decir: en un recodo del
Lago Gatin, y dentro del Area de reservaci6n --ilitar de Fuerte Gulick. La ensenada esta protegida por una barrera
protectora, que evita que desechos flotantes dificulten la operaci6n de la toma de agua. Las estructuras de concrete
contienen la maquinarias de succi6n, que son operadas automAticamente desde la Planta Purificadora de Mount
Hope, situada a varias millas de distancia.


"Becket", Proximo Gran Exito


Del Theatre Guild, en Anc6n


Los boletos para "Becket", esco-
gida como la pr6xima presentaci6n
del Theatre Guild y que serai puesta
en escena desde el 24 de febrero
hasta el 11 de marzo, seran puestos
a la venta al puiblico el lunes en la
taquilla del Teatro de Anc6n. La ta-
quilla estari abierta de 7 a 10 p.m.
Tambibn se podri hacer reservacio-
nes por tel6fono, Ilamando a Balboa
3786.
La venta especial de boletos para
los miembros del Theatre Guild, que
comenz6 anoche, durara hasta esta
noche.
"Becket", cuyos papeles estelares
de Thomas-A-Becket y Enrique II,
respectivamente, serin representados
por David Lommen y Adolfo Arias,
es una obra para adults sumamente
realista sobre la excitante historic de
uno de los episodios mas melodramA-
ticos de la humanidad. Es la narraci6n
de una gran amistad que se convirti6
en enemistad a muerte, entire un Rey
y uno de sus cortesanos, hace 800
afios.
El Rey de la obra es Enrique II,
nieto de Guillermo el Conquistador,
que es presentado como un perfect
patin, lo suficientemente inteligente
como para hacer preguntas, pero que
jamis pone atenci6n a las respuestas.
El cortesano es Thomas-A-Becket, el
compafiero de caceria mis querido


del Rey y su leal Canciller.
Cuando el Rey elev6 a Becket a
Arzobispo de Canterbury, en 1162,
tenia razones para esperar que su
amigo continuaria sirvi6ndole leal-
mente y pondria fin a la oposici6n
que la Iglesia mantenia contra el
trono. En vez de ello, Becket cambi6
de lealtad inmediatamente, y defen-
di6 los privilegios de la Iglesia con
mis vigor que cualquiera de sus pre-
decesores.
Un elenco de 30 tomard parte en
este drama que se desarrolla en Lon-
dres, Normandia y Roma.
El director es Frederic J. Berest.
Bruce Quinn es el productor y
Charles Hummer el coproductor.


Arte Universitario
La Primera Exposici6n Anual de
Arte de la Universidad de la Zona del
Canal, en la Pequefia Galeria de la
Casa de Hu6spedes Tivoli, durarA
todo el mes de febrero. Hay exhibi-
ci6n de pinturas y dibujos de los
estudiantes.
Susan Bell conquist6 el primer pre-
mio en pintura, mientras que Don
Izold gan6 el primer premio en dibu-
jo. Actuaron como jueces Guillermo
Trujillo, Trixie de Bricefio y Johanne
Bray.


El "Montego", de bandera inglesa, es una pequefia nave, de un poco mas de 1.000 toneladas que viaja regular-
mente entire Miami, Florida, y Guayaquil, Ecuador. Cuando viene de Miami, trae de toda clase de mercancia, que
desembarca en el Puerto de Crist6bal, antes de seguir viaje. En esta ocasi6n traia unos 30 vehiculos, entire auto-
m6viles y autobuses. Cruza el Canal con las bodegas vacias para ir a Guayaquil a recoger bananos que luego lleva
a los Estados Unidos. Originalmente era nave de aprovisionamiento del Ej6rcito de Estados Unidos.


-~$ -;~


Los muelles de Crist6bal manejan increibles cantidades de carga, destinada
a PanamA y a muchas parties del mundo. Se calcula que el 85 por ciento de
todas las mercancias que entran a la Reptblica de PanamA, lo hacen por los
muelles de Crist6bal. En la foto aparecen various tanques gigantescos, cons-
truidos especialmente para almacenar cloro, de un peso de 62.000 libras cada
uno, colocados sobre plataformas de tren y en espera del barco que los
Ilevaria al Puerto de Corinto, en Nicaragua. Los tanques fueron construidos
en Freeport, Louisiana, Estados Unidos de America. Parado, al lado del
primero de ellos esta Everardo Herrera, empleado de los muelles, que Ileva
ya 12 afios de prestar servicios al Canal de PanamA.

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Febrero 17, 1967


1s A
Las faldas de las mujeres en 1907 eran muy alargadas, no muy recortadas
como las de hoy dia. En aquel tiempo, ain para un viaje a las Islas de las
Perlas se usaba sombrero y guantes, recuerda la Sra. Ora Ewing, al mirar
una vieja fotografia en busca de alguna cara conocida.


Dama de la Localidad Recuerda


Cosas Interesantes de Panama


La Sra. Ora M. Ewing esta ense-
fiando en Panama, desde 1907 y toda
su vida ha estado rodeada de gente
joven. Al present, es supervisor del
dormitorio de mujeres de la Univer-
sidad de la Zona del Canal, en La
Boca. Anteriormente, y durante 23
afios, fue la encargada de la residen-
cia de varones.
Naci6 en Glenville, Virginia Occi-
dental, y se gradu6 en la Escuela
Normal del Estado, en ese lugar. Su
esposo, ya fallecido, tambi6n era de
Virginia Occidental, y su primer tra-
bajo en el Istmo lo tuvo en la Oficina
del Dr. Gorgas.
La Sra. Ewing, en realidad, no
pensaba ser maestra en Panama. Pero
en ese entonces habia una gran de-
manda de enfermeras y maestras. Su
primer clase la dio en Emperador,
donde la maestra se enferm6. Luego
fue trasladada a Las Cascadas. To-
maba el tren en Anc6n, a las 7 a.m. y
regresaba en el de la tarde.
El primer sueldo de su esposo fue
de $100 al mes y ella ganaba $90
mensuales.
Vivian en Anc6n en una casa de
madera, que dice, "era mas fresca que
las modernas casas de hoy". Se coci-
naba en estufas de lefia y carb6n. La

examen.
El program de principiantes, lle-
vado a cabo por el personal encarga-
do de la Utilizaci6n y Capacitaci6n de
Empleados del Canal de Panama ha
adelantado much desde que comen-
z6 en noviembre de 1964 con ocho
Principiantes panamefios. Hoy hay
88 de ellos (36 artesanos y 52 no arte-
sanos). El program de aprendizaje
prepare a los j6venes en la categoria
manual en niveles inferiores al del
artesano, tales como ayudantes de
artesano. Tambien suministra un
grupo select de aspirantes a apren-
diz.
El program de aprendices ha es-
tado en process desde la construe-
ci6n del Canal. Fue ampliado en 1960
y desde entonces, aproximadamente
60 panamenfios y 50 estadounidenses
se han graduado como artesanos titu-
lados. A fines de afiio habia 82 no
ciudadanos de Estados Unidos y 52
ciudadanos estadounidenses, emplea-
dos dentro del program, que dura
4 afios.

compra de comestibles se hacia por
control remoto. Se mandaba el cup6n
del comisariato y la lista de comes-
tibles a Crist6bal, de donde la des-
pachaban por tren, asi que habia que
planear con todo cuidado las comidas,
pues no habia la posibilidad de echar
una carrerita a la tienda de la esquina.
Como el Sr. Ewing trabajaba en el
viejo Hospital Anc6n, ellos vivian en
predios del hospital y frecuentemente
comian en el comedor de los m6dicos
y enfermeras.
En aquellos tiempos, un almuerzo
delicioso s61o costaba 30 centavos,
no importaba la cantidad que uno
quisiera comer. Pero antes del al-
muerzo, era obligatorio tomar una
cucharada de quinina liquid, como
media de protecci6n.
En los dias de la construcci6n del
Canal se caminaba much. En vez de
carretera, se caminaba por la via del
ferrocarril. Tambien era muy popular
el montar a caballo y la Asociaci6n de
Diversiones de Anc6n organizaba fre-
cuentes paseos. Tambi6n se hacian
excursions por barco, frecuentemen-
te hasta las Islas de las Perlas, en la
Bahia de Panama. Todo el mundo
iba completamente vestido, incluso
con sombreros y guantes. Faltaba to-
davia medio siglo para que llegaran
los bikinis y minifaldas.
La Sra. Ewing fue testigo presen-
cial de muchos hechos que hoy son
hist6ricos. Vio cuando vol6 el dique
de Gamboa, para inundar el Corte
Gaillard, en el moment en que el
President Wilson, desde Washington,
oprimi6 un bot6n electrico. Recuerda
cuando Alice Roosevelt, hija del Pre-
sidente de ese nombre, fue la admira-
ci6n de todo Panama. Y recuerda
complacida el dia en que el Armisti-
cio puso fin a la I Guerra Mundial.
A media que la buena nueva se iba
esparciendo por el vecindario, ella
encabez6o un desfile del Dia del Ar-
misticio con el que golpeando ollas y
cacerolas, alborotaron todo Anc6n y
Balboa.
De 1936 a 1937, vivieron en una
vieja casa del tiempo de los franceses
en Anc6n y, cuando el Sr. Ewing se
jubil6, se mudaron a la Casa de Hues-
pedes Tivoli.
Pensaban irse a vivir a los Estados
Unidos, cuando la II Guerra Mundial
cambi6 sus planes. Luego, la Divi-
si6n de Escuelas de la Zona del Canal
solicit a la Sra. Ewing que se en-
cargara del dormitorio de varones
durante 1 afio. Pero ese afio se exten-
di6 hasta el present. El dormitorio
estuvo en varies lugares. Original-
mente, donde esta ahora el gimnasio
de la Escuela Primaria de Balboa;
luego a un edificio que queda frente
a la Escuela de Santa Maria; despu6s
fue mudado al segundo piso del edi-
ficio del Centro de Salud de Balboa.
Su direcci6n actual es el nuevo dormi-
torio de mujeres de la Universidad de
la Zona del Canal, en La Boca.
La Sra. Ewing ha sido condecora-
da por sus servicios a la Cruz Roja
Americana.
Tiene dos hijas: la Sra. de Otto
Hausmann, resident en Bella Vista,
ciudad de PanamA, y la Sra. Virginia
Ewing Stich, resident en Los Rios,
Zona del Canal, quien es bibliotecaria
medica en el Hospital Gorgas; y una
nieta, Ann Stich, estudiante de primer
afio en la Universidad de la Zona del
Canal.
El Sr. Ewing muri6 en 1958.

El baile de Carnavalito, que se celebr6 en la
Cancha de Tenis de la Escuela Secundaria de
