Vol. V, No. 44 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, April 21, 1967


Mariano J. Oteiza, president of the Canal Zone Bar Association, receives
the Law Day Proclamation by Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber designating
May 1 as Law Day in the Canal Zone. John E. Deming, right, is president
of the Canal Zone Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.


"No Man Is Above the Law,

And No Man Is Below It"

On this 10th anniversary of Law
Day USA the Canal Zone Bar Asso-
ciation is joining with the Federal
Bar Association in a special effort to
make Law Day USA 1967 one from
which the young people of our com-
munity will gain a better understand-
ing of the original thought behind
the observance.
Charles Rhyne, president of the
American Bar Association in 1957,
was the driving force behind the
movement to observe May 1 each
year as Law Day USA. He believed
that the "Rule of Law," as exem-
plified by our representative Govern-
ment, should prevail over the "Rule
of Might" of the totalitarian govern-
With this thesis, Law Day USA
has been observed each May 1 since
1957, stress always being placed on
the rights and duties of the individual
in a society organized under the
"Rule of Law."
This year's theme for Law Day
USA is taken from the words of Pres-
ident Theodore Roosevelt in a mes-
sage to Congress in 1904: "No man
is above the law, and no man is
below it."
In keeping with the basic tenet of
Law Day USA, with this theme, and
in an effort to expose more of our
community to the idea behind Law
Day USA, the Canal Zone Bar Asso-
ciation is joining with the Federal

Bar Association in providing lawyers
to visit each of the classes in our
secondary schools that are studying
courses on U.S. Government and
related fields.
The Schools Division has welcomed
the offer and requested that 75 to
90 class periods be visited. Each of
these class periods will be visited by
an active lawyer who will discuss the
idea of Law Day USA and the rights
and duties of individuals under our
system of organized society under
Law Day ceremonies also will be
held on both sides of the Isthmus
at 9 a.m., Monday, May 1. Woodrow
De Castro, a member of the Canal
Zone Bar Association, will deliver the
address at the ceremonies to be held
in the courtroom of the U.S. District

Lt. Col. Henley

Speaker for ROA
Lt. Col.. Stephen Henley, Exec-
utive Officer, Surgeon, USARSO, will
speak at the annual convention of
the Reserve Officers Association of
the Canal Zone Monday evening at
the Quarry Heights Officers Club.
His subject will be "Military
Medicare Law" and he will answer
questions of particular interest to
The convention will begin at 5
p.m. Officers for the coming year
will be elected. All members are
urged to attend.

If millions of dollars had not been
spent in modifications and improve-
ments which increased the capacity
of the waterway during the past 5
years, Panama Canal traffic now
would be exceeding estimated ca-
Because of these improvements,
which have included cut widening and
modification of locks overhaul tech-
niques, capacity has been increased
from 32 to 70 oceangoing ships
during a 24-hour period.
During the first 15 days of April,
the daily average reached 41.4 ocean-
going ships, highest in Canal history.
At the same time the number of lock-
ages came to 37.6, which exceeded
the maximum capacity of 36 daily
average lockages estimated in the
1960 Bonner Committee report.
This same report, considered rea-
sonable at the time and which did
not, of course, take the Viet Nam
War into consideration, indicated that
transits of blue water ships would
reach an average of 43 a day by the
year 2000.
Transits of ships of 300 Panama
Canal net tons or more for fiscal year
1968 also may break the record set
during the last fiscal year when there
were 12,601 big ships of all classes
using the waterway. At the end of
the first 9 months of this fiscal year,
oceangoing transits totaled 9,782
ships-and there are 3 more months
of the year to go.

300 Receive


Karen Elizabeth Parfitt, 10-year-

These were the first citizenship certif-
icates issued outside the United States

The first citizenship certificate pre-
sented outside the country was issued
last December to Hugh Harvey, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Harvey of
Balboa, by former Gov. Robert J.
Fleming Jr., in a special ceremony in
the Governor's Office.
By April 10, when Immigration
officers Andrew J. Carmichael and
William T. Jarmon arrived here, more
than 300 applications from Isthmian
residents had been processed by the
Immigration Service in New Orleans
and the applicants notified of time
and place for hearings in the Canal
Zone. The officers have held hearings

ber of stolen vehicles reported in
the Canal Zone and in Panama.
Cars and motor scooters seem
to be popular with thieves and the
Canal Zone Police urge locking
as securely as possible.
Persons driving motor scooters
are reminded by the police to ob-

Herald Trio Busy

Here; To Return

To Waring Tour

Three ambitious young men who
make up the Herald Trio are cur-
rently performing for Canal Zone au-
diences on both sides of the Isthmus.
Richard Carpenter, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Henry Carpenter of Margarita,
and a 1963 graduate of Cristobal
High School, is personnel manager
for the trio. John Logan of Knoxville,
Tenn., and Denis Ray of Nashville,
Tenn., are the other two members.
All three are students on leave from
the University of Tennessee.
The Herald Trio is a folk group
which has been under contract with
Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians
since the spring of '66, and has been
on tour with him and given concerts
in all but 4 of the 50 States.
The trio gave a performance for
Cristobal High School students re-
cently. When they are working to put
a show together they have to spend 6
or 7 hours a day in rehearsal. All three
hope to make a career in music but
all three also feel that they definitely
want to finish their college work first.
Their music is mostly contem-
porary folk song and pop ballad
style. They say while the music busi-
ness is lucrative, at present about 83
percent of their earnings goes back
into the trio.
The boys came to the Zone by
selling their show to Sgt. Jack Early
of the Howard USO Club and will
spend about 6 weeks here. This is
their third visit to the Canal Zone
since the forming of their trio in
1964. When they leave here they
again will travel with Fred Waring.

National Geographic

Past Issues Requested

The Schools Division would like
past issues of the National Geogra-
phic Magazine for use in the schools.
Persons interested in donating
copies of the National Geographic
may call the office of the Curriculum
Coordinator, 2-4548, and arrange-
ments will be made to pick them up.

Canal Zone Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt, right, presented the Panama Canal Printing Plant an engraved plaque in recog-
nition of completion of more than 1,200,000 man-hours of continuous operation without a disabling injury for
the last 9 years. John B. Coffey, center, Superintendent, Printing Plant, accepted the plaque on behalf of the plant.
At left is Kenneth E. Goldsberry, Jr., Division Safety Representative and graduate intern, Administrative Serv-
ices Division. Lieutenant Governor Parfitt noted that the accumulation of disabling injury-free work hours is a
noteworthy achievement, considering that the employees are constantly working under high-hazard conditions
resulting from use of caustic chemicals and molten metals, operation of high-speed machinery, and handling of
heavy loads.

Dr. Strumpf


In Florida

Dr. Irving Jack Strumpf, who re-
tired from Panama Canal services as
Chief of Obstretics and Gynecology
and with his wife went to Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., to reside in January
1966, is now consultant to the
Broward County Health Department
and Associate Director of the High
Risk Maternity and Infant Care Pro-
gram for that county in Florida.
The object of the program, Dr.
Strumpf explains, is to screen out
those maternity patients who require
specialists' care and delivery. In this
way the high risk patients, where a
hazard may be present to the mother
or the child at delivery, are assured
of adequate care. The objective of the
program is to reduce the present level
of maternal and infant mortality and
Dr. and Mrs. Strumpf, who now
reside at 3233 N.E. 34th Street, Apt.
1215, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., left the
Isthmus in January 1966 for Spain.
There they saw their daughter, Doro-
thy, receive her master's degree from
the University of Madrid. She now is
teaching in Stamford, Conn. Their
son, Robert, is in San Francisco. ,
Dr. Strumpf came to the Canal
Zone in 1950 as Chief of Obstetrics
and Gyneclology, the position he held
at retirement. He set up the residency
training program at Gorgas Hospital.
He was an active member of the
Panamanian Academy of Medicine
and Surgery and, before leaving the
Isthmus, received from the Republic
of Panama the country's Order of
Vasco Ninez de Balboa in the grade
of Commander.

"I've got sixpence, jolly jolly six-
pence. I've got sixpence to last me
all my life . ."
And I'm not going to lend it or
give it to my wife, but spend it on
the Tivoli Sunday Brunch!
The Brunch menu I'm going to
blow my sixpence on is well worth
it: assorted fruit and juice trays,
dollar pancakes with syrup and honey,
eggs benedict, German fried potatoes,
grilled sausage links, grilled bacon,
deep fried chicken livers, assorted
dry cereals, buttered toast, cinnamon
toast, assorted coffee cakes, blueberry
muffins, coffee, tea, and milk.
"Just one moment, Sir. Our brunch
may not be expensive, but you will
need more than sixpence. It costs
$1.35 for adults and 95 cents for
children. And the brunch is served in
the Roosevelt Room from 9:00 a.m.
to 1:00 p.m., April 23."
Ol! It's Mexican Night again! The

The exhibit will include coins of the
world, gold coins from 50 different
countries, early Spanish colonial coins,
complete sets of Panama coins, and
most series of U.S. coins and currency.
The coin exhibits by the Isthmian
Numismatic Society and Coin Clubs
of Fort Clayton and Panama will
include collections of coins of the
Americas from the earliest dates up
to modern day coinage. The Canal
Zone Police Division will have a dis-
play of counterfeit coinage and cur-
rency. This display will show the
public how to recognize counterfeit
money, how it is made and circulated.
Members of the Numismatic Society
will be on hand to give information
on the displays and to evaluate and
identify any coins visitors may bring
in. The coin exhibits on both sides of
the Isthmus are open to the public
and there is no admission charge.

Clessie L. Cummins was the sensa-
tion of the 1930 National Automobile
Show. Under the hood of his Packard
limousine was a 4-cylinder diesel en-
gine which his little factory in Indiana
made for boats. Fuel for his 800-mile
trip to New York cost $1.38. In his
memoirs, entitled My Days With
the Diesel, Cummins tells what
happened after the show, the misad-
ventures and setbacks that occurred
before the superiority of diesel en-
gines for heavy trucks was accepted,
and the success of his factory assured.
His book is a forthright and interest-
ing account of how a "big business"
is built.

Governor's Law Day Proclamation I
WHEREAS the Congress of the United States has designated the first
day of May each year as Law Day USA, and set it aside for special observance
by the American people in recognition of their national heritage of individual
freedom under law and of the great rights secured to them by law and the
attendant duties and responsibilities which these rights entail; and
WHEREAS the President of the United States has by proclamation called
upon our people to observe the day with suitable programs and ceremonies;
WHEREAS this May 1st marks the 10th anniversary of Law Day USA
and the theme for observance of Law Day this year carries a timely reminder
for all Americans, stated in the words of our Nation's 25th President, Theodore
Roosevelt, in a message to Congress in 1904:
"No man is above the law, and no man is below it" and in keeping with
these words, which capture the essence of our tradition of equal justice for
all men, it is especially appropriate on this Law Day that we acknowledge
our duty as citizens and recognize our responsibility to uphold the law, the
agencies of law enforcement and the courts, in the performance of their
obligations, with special notice of this responsibility being taken in the
homes, the schools and the churches.
NOW THEREFORE, I, W. P. LEBER, Governor of the Canal Zone,
do hereby proclaim Monday, May 1, 1967, as Law Day throughout the
Canal Zone and call upon the entire Canal Zone community to join with
the churches, the judiciary, members of the legal profession, and law-
enforcement officials in the proper observance of the day.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the
seal of the Canal Zone to be affixed at Balboa Heights this seventeenth day
of April in the year nineteen hundred and sixty-seven.

Executive Secretary.

El Canal Supera

Los Pronosticos

Si no se hubiera gastado millones
de d6lares en modificaciones y me-
joras, que aumentaron la capacidad
de la via interoceAnica durante los
iltimos 5 afios, el trAfico a travbs del
Canal de PanamA al present exce-
deria la capacidad calculada.
Debido a estas mejoras, que han
incluido la ampliaci6n del Corte y
la modificaci6n de las t6cnicas de
reacondicionamiento de las esclusas,
la capacidad de trAnsitos del Canal
ha sido aumentada de 32 a 70 naves
de alto bordo para un period de
24 horas.
Durante los primeros 15 dias del
mrues de abril, el promedio diario
lleg6 a 41.4 naves de alto bordo, el
mAs alto en toda la historic del Canal.
Al misrno tiempo, el nimero prome-
dio de pasajes de esclusa lleg6 a 37.6,
que excede la capacidad mAxima de
36 pasajes de esclusa como promedio
diario, calculado en el infonre del
Comit6 Bonner en 1960.
Este mismo informed, considerado
razonable en aquel tiempo, y que
naturalmente no tom6 en cuenta la
Guerra de Viet Nam, indicaba que
los trAnsitos de naves de gran calado
alcanzarian un promedio de 43 al dia
para el afio 2000.

El trAnsito de naves de 300 tone-
ladas netas del Canal de Panama o
mAs, para el afio fiscal 1960, tambibn
puede romper la marca establecida
el pasado afio fiscal cuando 12.601
naves grandes de todo tipo transitaron
la via interoceanica. Al final de los
primeros 9 meses del present afio
fiscal, los trAnsitos de naves de alto
bordo ascendian a 9.782, quedando

Clarence George Pitter, es tecnico audiometrico en la
Clinica de Otorrinolaringologia del Hospital Gorgas.
Tiene 26 afios de prestar servicios con la empresa del
Canal y con much orgullo dice que todos ellos los ha
pasado en el mismo lugar, s6lo que antes se Ilamaba
Hospital Anc6n y ahora lleva el nombre del hombre que
mis contribuy6 a acabar con la malaria y la fiebre ama-
rilla en el Istmo de PanamA, el Dr. William Crawford
Gorgas. Tambidn recuerda complacido el dia que entr6
a trabajar como encargado de los mandados en la oficina
del superintendent, ganando unos 22 centavos por hora.
Dice que siente enorme orgullo de haber ido subiendo
durante todos esos afios hasta llegar a la posici6n de
semiprofesional que tiene ahora. Naci6 en la ciudad de
PanamA el 18 de septiembre de 1910, pero muy nifio sus
padres se lo Ilevaron para Jamaica, donde hizo su escuela
primaria y tambien la secundaria. Regres6 en 1941 e
ingres6 al servicio del Canal inmediatamente. Su adies-
tramiento como t4cnico audiomitrico lo hizo en el Gorgas
bajo la supervision del Dr. Franklyn Leo Spann, del
Hospital Walter S. Reed. Su esposa se llama Mervis Hyatt
de Pitter y ya tienen 31 afios de matrimonio. Han tenido
tres hijas, la mayor Norma de Johnson, resident en
Nueva York; le sigue Sonia de Staples, resident en
Nueva Jersey, y la mAs joven Marcia Pitter que todavia
vive con sus padres en la casita que poseen en Juan Diaz,
rodeada de jardines y donde su mamA, la Sra. Mervis
tiene tambi6n una cria de aves de corral. El senior Pitter
es profundamente religioso y pertenece a la Iglesia Meto-
dista Wesleyana de PanamA donde es' predicador local.
Su pequefio Opel es conocido en las comunidades de
ambos lados del Istmo a donde lleva la palabra de Dios
en todo moment libre que le queda. Cuando nifio sobre-
sali6 en actividades escultistas en Jamaica al extreme que
represent a la isla en un Jamboree international que
tuvo lugar en Inglaterra en 1929.

Leslie J. Pryce, hombre de reposado hablar y de suaves
modales, es t6cnico ur6logo en la Secci6n de Urologia
del Hospital Gorgas y lleva 26 afios de asociaci6n con la
empresa del Canal de PanamA. Dice que parte de su oficio
lo aprendi6 con su hermano, el Dr. Constantine Pryce,
en Jamaica. La otra parte como adiestramiento en su
trabajo. Dice que estA sumamente orgulloso de haber
subido, desde mozo de sala hasta la posici6n de semi-
profesional que ahora tiene por sus propios esfuerzos.
"Ha sido una lucha de muchos afios", dice "pero me llena '
de satisfacci6n, ya que lo que soy es resultado de mi U
propio esfuerzo. Tambidn me satisface much el que
sean mis superiores los que en estos moments me estn
buscando una mejor clasificaci6n para reconocer asi mi "
servicio". Pryce naci6 en Jamaica el 15 de agosto de 1918.
Alli hizo sus studios primaries y secundarios y en 1941
vino al Istmo de PanamA entrando inmediatamente al -
servicio del Canal. Recuerda que comenz6 como Mozo __
de Sala, en el Hospital Anc6n, que en aquellos tiempos ,
pertenecia a los que se conocia como el Departamento
de Salubridad, hoy Direcci6n de Salubridad. "Entonces 4
ganaba $42.50 al mes" dice sonriendo. Pryce es un
enamorado de su profesi6n y estA orgulloso de ella. "Es V
una gran experiencia tratar con toda clase de gente, de
todos los niveles de la vida. He atendido al Dr. Arnulfo
Arias, al difunto Don TomAs Gabriel Duque, a generals
y a muchisima gente humilde. La conclusion que he deported dice a manera de explicaci6n. "Chiriqui es
sacado es que en el mundo hay much gente buena". bellisimo, pero en San Carlos me siento como en mi casa
Le gustan much las carreras de caballo, "las tomo como pues alli tengo muchos amigos, dice al final.

Envenenamientos que Pasan

Dentro del Mismo Hogar

(Continuacidn del nimero pasado.)
Precauciones a tomar
Mantingase los products de lim-
pieza y las drogas fuera del alcance y
de la vista de los nifios, preferible-
mente en muebles o estanterias cerra-
Almacdnense las medicines en sus
recipients originals y alejadas de
los products para limpieza.
Mantengase todos los products
bien rotulados y lManse las etiquetas
antes de emplearlos.
Siempre se debe encender la luz
para administrar medicines y ensefiar
a los nifios que ellas no son dulces.
Limpiense peri6dicamente los mue-
bles de ahlacenamiento y tirense los
products que ya no van a ser usados.
Nunca se vuelven a emplear reci-
pientes de drogas y de products para
limpieza. Destruyanse y tirense en un
lugar apropiado.
Si se present envenenamiento
Si ocurre un envenenamiento es
esencial seguir estos tres pasos:
Administre primeros auxilios a
la victim
Conserve el recipient y cual-
quier cantidad disponible de la
sustancia venenosa, para powder
identificar el veneno
Obtenga asistencia m6dica.
Los primeros auxilios para la inges-
ti6n de venenos consiste en hacer
devolver la sustancia o el retardar su
absorci6n. Para hacer devolver el ve-
neno se induce al v6mito introducien-
do los dedos en ]a garganta de la
victim despu6s de haberle adminis-
trado un buen trago de agua tibia.
Para retardar la absorci6n se hace
que la victim tome leche o huevo
crudo. No se debe inducir al v6mito
cuando se trate de aceites volAtiles
como la gasoline y el kerosin debido
al peligro de aspiraci6n dentro de los
pulmones, o cuando se trate de pro-
ductos corrosivos como la lejia o des-
tapadores de cafierias debido al peli-
gro de rotura del es6fago.

Nanci Closson, joven pintora esta-
dounidense resident en Corozal,
Zona del Canal, tiene una brillante
exposici6n de tintas, lavados y acua-
relas con motives callejeros y paisajes
de Panamd, en el saldn de Actos de la
Asociacidn Panameio-Norteamerica-
na, que durard hasta el 28 de abril.
La entrada es completamente gratis.

La causa del envenenamiento pue-
de a menudo ser determinada por la
apariencia o el olor de la victim
o por la etiqueta del recipient de
donde se obtuvo el veneno. T6mese
el recipient y cualquier cantidad re-
manente y 1vese al mddico o al
hospital a done ha sido llevada la
victim. El recipient o la muestra
pueden ser de gran ayuda para selec-
cionar el tratamiento que debe ser
La ayuda que debe obtenerse en
casos de envenenamiento es, desde
luego, un m6dico. En algunas locali-
dades se pueden obtener servicios
medicos, de ambulancia y de hospital
por intermedio de la policia o del
cuerpo de bombers municipal.
A pesar de ser muy Aitil el saber
qud hacer cuando un accident ocurra,
es preferible vivir y actuar en forma
tal que se evite la ocurrencia del acci-
dente. La prevenci6n de envenena-
mientos accidentales require un
sentido de responsabilidad y de vigi-
lancia de todos los riesgos para guiar
el desarrollo de medidas de seguridad
en el hogar. Se debe recorder que en
la casa se conservan venenos sin
etiqueta suficientes para matar a toda
una familiar.
