Apprentice Program Vital to Canal

"The apprentice program is vital
to the Canal, and since its beginning
during construction days has contrib-
uted considerably to the success of
the Canal by furnishing much of the
skilled manpower it needs, "Gov.

Son of Balboa

Couple Wins

A letter of commendation for assist-
ing in the rescue of a fellow soldier
who was pinned down by his truck in
2 feet of water on a road in Vietnam
has been received by Sgt. Robert J.
Knox, son of Sgt. Robert S. Knox, of
the Balboa Fire District, and Mrs.
The letter received by Sergeant
and Mrs. Knox said he was being
commended for his fast action in
assisting in the rescue of Sgt. Roman
F. Schmidt-and that his immediate
assistance undoubtedly helped to save
the man's life.
"On the evening of April 28, 10Y7,
you assisted five other men in a race
against time to free Sergeant Schmidt
of the 669th Transportation Com-
pany from his overturned %-ton truck
which had landed in 2 feet of water.
Through your unselfish and timely
actions, Sergeant Schmidt was re-
covered from his vehicle and admin-
istered artificial respiration by a
trained individual.
"Because of your assistance on the
evening of April 28, Sergeant Schmidt
is today a live and healthy man-a
man who won't forget your deed for
a lifetime.
"Again, you are to be commended
for your timely and unselfish actions.
You have brought great credit upon
yourself, your unit, and the U.S.
Sergeant Knox was born in Mar-
garita and attended Canal Zone
Schools in Cristobal and Balboa. He
has been serving with the U.S. Army
since 1962 and has been in Vietnam
for the past 6 months with the 98th

W. P. Leber declared this morning
at graduation of 31 apprentices to full
journeymen in a ceremony at the Per-
sonnel Bureau Training Center Annex
in Ancon.
Governor Leber noted that there
are now 221 apprentices-136 Pan-
amanians and 85 U.S. citizens-in the
program. He said, also, that in the
next 5 to 10 years the program will
be expanded as skilled manpower is
more and more in demand.
The Governor also noted that 19
Panamanians are among the new
craftsmen and that they represent the
long association of Panamanians who
have been working with U.S. citizens
through the years to share the respon-
sibility of operating the Panama
The graduates represented the
largest group in the history of the
Panama Canal Apprentice Program
after it was enlarged in 1960 and
again in 1963, when the program was
further expanded to include U.S.
Army apprentices. The Navy joined
the program in 1964.

Ten new cases of malaria were
reported to the Health Bureau during
the month of May and fourteen more
in June. Three of the May cases were
employees of the Canal organization-
one from Pedro Miguel had camped
several nights in the Pedro Miguel
River valley within the Canal
Zone; the second, from Gamboa, had
attended horses at the Gamboa Riding
Stables after sundown; and the third,
from Colon, had visited a village on
Gatun Lake overnight.
One of the June cases was a Pan-
Canal employee from Paraiso who had
been visiting at Chilibre. There were
six cases from the Fort Sherman mil-
itary training area and the remaining
June cases were dependents with
sources in the Republic, with the ex-
ception of one at Howard AFB.
One May malaria case, a land li-
censee on the Pajal River west of
Gamboa, was detected by the Divi-
sion of Sanitation blood slide survey,
which is completed every 3 months
throughout the rural areas of the
Canal Zone. The, source of .the land
licensee case was credited to Liro,
a Panamanian village near the border
of the Zone.
A U.S. Army enlisted man stationed
at Fort Gulick was another May case
and a youngster from Albrook attend-
ing his horse after sundown at the
Curundu Riding Stables was bitten
by an infected mosquito in that area.
An infected mosquito may be left
by an untreated malaria-infected
individual who is hunting or visiting
these areas at night.
The four remaining May cases
were dependents of Canal Zone em-
ployees who either live or visit in the
Republic where malaria continues to
be a problem.
The 10 cases of malaria represented
the largest number reported in that
month since 1958, when 38 cases
were reported to the Health Bureau.
Last year 7 cases were reported in
There were 13 cases reported in

The Dredging Division's Gamboa Field Office was a swinging place Friday morning when the crane "Hercules"
lifted it bodily off its foundation and moved it 150 feet to a temporary location. Despite the major move, the
office, which operates 24 hours a day, was out of business only a half hour. The eight employees on duty at the
time, left their desks at 10 a.m. and returned with all electrical equipment hooked up again at 10:30 a.m. The
Field Office, classified as the nerve center of the Dredging Division, houses all radio and communication equip-
ment in addition to important records. The office will be replaced by a 2-story masonry building to be constructed
on the same location by Dillon Construction Co. at a cost of $35,000.

Panama National Library

Marks 25th Anniversary

Panama's National Library, cele-
brating its 25th anniversary this
month, was officially dedicated July
11, 1942, by President Ricardo A.
de la Guardia.
It was located at the corner of
B Avenue and 6th Street, in Panama
City. Dr. Victor Florencio Goytia was
Minister of Education and the first
library curator was a noted Panama-
nian historian, Ernesto de J. Casti-
llero. Castillero and his assistant,
Galileo Patifio, strived from the very
beginning to enlarge the newborn
library, which only had some 10,000
volumes. These books constituted the
old Colon Library, the only public
library in Panama, supported by the
Panama City treasury since 1892.
Today, the National Library is an
efficient, modern organization with
the number of books rapidly rising
toward the 100,000 volumes mark.
From the beginning, and under the
direction of the subsequent curators,
Galileo Patifio, Aurora Corro, Boni-
facio Pereira, Ana Maria Ja6n, and
presently, once more under the di-
rection of Patifio, Panama National

Library's cultural influence reaches
all sectors of the Republic.
The library has gone a long way
since the founding of the popular
libraries "Eusebio A. Morales" and
"Manuel Jos6 Hurtado" in 1953, and
the San Francisco de la Caleta library
and the "Narciso Garay" library, in
the section of Betania, in 1954, due
to the efforts of Bonifacio Pereira.
Today, there are 153 libraries, all
over the Republic, which are branches
of the National Library in Panama and

tion of a modern mobile library,
which will carry the sources of knowl-

Capt. C. G. Killick, center, veteran skipper of the Furness Withy Co. cargo
vessel "Pacific Reliance," gets an honorary Panama Canal pilot's license from
Capt. Richard C. Sergeant. Balboa Port Captain, and Acting Chief, Naviga-
tion Division, as he is about to make his 100th transit of the Canal. The
presentation was made in Balboa harbor as the ship was about to enter the
Canal northbound. With them is W. D. Bomford, right, manager of Pacific
Ford, S.A., agents for the vessel. Captain Killick joined Furness Withy as a
cadet at the age of 16 and, with the exception of the World War II years,
has been serving on the company's ships for the past 39 years. He has been
a ship's master since 1950. The "Pacific Reliance" makes regular trips through
the Canal between England and the North Pacific coast of the United States
and Canada.

The SS "Matina," United Fruit Co. 6,800 gross ton cargo carrier, under the British flag, reflects a mirror-like image
of herself as she sits at a pier at the Industrial Division, Mount Hope, where boilers of the ship were repaired. For
the benefit of shutterbugs, the photograph was taken with a 35 mm. Contax IIIa, an f 22 (lens opening), 1/250
second, using Tri-X 400 ASA rating film. The picture was taken at 7 a.m., when the wind is low and minimum
disturbance and lack of currents make for best reflections in water. The "Matina" is a regular Canal customer,
carrying bananas from Golfito, Costa Rica, and Puerto Armuelles to United States and European ports.


Name's Blank, as in Blank Check

His name is Blank-but there is
nothing blank about Mr. Blank.
This 71-year world traveler-who
parlayed savings from pop bottle
deposits into a modest fortune-
arrived in Panama about a week ago
on a bus from San Francisco, Calif.
He wanted to see the country, he
explained when asked about the
method of traveling. "I want to be
where the action is."
And where the action is is where
bouncy, blue-eyed Clarence Blank
usually is. He doesn't stay long
enough in any one city to call it home,
but his stock market activities keep a
well-known United States brokerage
firm on a full time jump.
When he left here July 3, he was
on a round-the-world jaunt-this time
in style. He sailed on the P & 0 liner
Oriana first class for Europe. In his
pocket is a Eurail pass which will
permit him to ride a network of rail-
roads in Europe and keep him busy
visiting nearly every country in
Europe for the next 2 months. After

An unlimited Panama Canal Pilot's License, marking the completion of
nearly 2 years of training, is presented Capt. Robert J. Bloemer, left, by
Capt. Donald E. Dertien, USN, Marine Director in the Cristobal Port Cap-
tain's Office. Also present is Mrs. Bloemer. A native of Omaha, Nebr., Captain
Bloemer joined the Panama Canal's pilot force in November 1965.

Apprentice Program Said Vital

(Continued from p. 1)
Southern Command also participated
in the ceremony. The Industrial
Training Staff, the Administrative
Section, and the Industrial Training
Committee also were represented.
In his address, the Governor em-
phasized that the new journeymen
will bring into the Canal organiza-
tion an impressive variety of skills
which they must continue to develop
to keep up with new techniques and
new processes.
"And one day you will find your-
selves in the role of instructors on
the job, telling others how to do the
job, guiding them along the same
road that you have traveled," he told
the graduates.
The Governor also paid tribute to
the many men who assisted the
apprentices in their training and made
possible their graduation. He men-
tioned the patience, skill, and willing-
ness of the teachers who gave advice
and guided each apprentice in learn-
ing the skills of his trade.
"Today, part of the responsibility
for operating the Panama Canal is
being placed in your hands. It is a
great responsibility that has grown
from a long tradition. I know that you
will add to that tradition as you carry
on," said the Governor as he con-
gratulated the new craftsmen.
Governor Leber presented eight
members of the graduating class spe-
cial awards in recognition of excel-
lence in academic and shop-skill
achievement during the 4-year
program. Outstanding Performance
Awards were presented to John M.
Eberenz and Terrel C. Deakins.
Superior Service Awards went to Paul
F. Ebdon, Jerome E. Steiner, Jr.,
Waldo B. Gilley, Jr., Keith Green,
Randall Deakins, and George L.

June 1966. The high for that month
during the last 10 years was a peak
of 47 cases in 1957.
While malaria is present the year
round, the likelihood of infection is
greatly increased during the early

July). For this reason Canal Zone
health authorities warn Zone residents
to be on guard against mosquitos and
the best practice is to stay within
screened interiors after sundown.
The number of malaria cases treated
in the Canal Zone is increasing and
the upswing is shown by a 10-year
graph. Most of the cases originate
from outside the Zone. Records show
there were 27 cases in 1962, and 4,
7, 9, and 29 in successive years.
Mel Boreham, entomologist, Divi-
sion of Sanitation, attended the recent
Assembly of the Directors of the
Malaria Eradication Services of Cen-
tral America, Mexico, Panama, and
the Caribbean countries at Port-au-
Prince, Haiti. He represented the
Health Bureau and the Canal Zone.
Among highlights of the assembly
was a report on the new Malaria
Research Center in El Salvador and
the new Office of Evaluations, also in
that country. Both will provide serv-
ices to all countries in Central Amer-
ica and the Caribbean.

Aumenta la Malaria

En la Zona del Canal

Diez nuevos casos de malaria fue-
ron informados a la Direcci6n de Sa-
lubridad durante el mes de mayo y
catorce mAs durante junio. Tres de
los casos de mayo eran empleados del
Canal, uno de Pedro Miguel que
habia acampado durante varias no-
ches en el Valle de Pedro Miguel,
dentro de la Zona del Canal; el se-
gundo, de Gamboa, habia cuidado de
los caballos despues del anochecer
en el Club de Equitaci6n de Gamboa,
y el tercero, de Col6n, habia pasado
la noche en una aldea del Lago
Uno de los casos de junior fue un
empleado de Paraiso que habia estado
de visit en Chilibre. Hubo seis casos
procedentes del Area de adiestra-
miento de Fuerte Sherman y el resto
de los casos fueron de dependientes
con contacts en la Repiblica, a ex-
cepci6n de uno procedente de la Base
de la Fuerza Aerea de Howard.
Uno de los casos malAricos de
mayo, concesionario de terrenos en el
Rio Pajal, al oeste de Gamboa, fue
detectado por la Divisi6n de Sanidad
durante los exAmenes de sangre que
se hacen cada 3 meses en las Areas
rurales de la Zona del Canal. La fuen-
te del contagio fue rastreada hasta
Liro, aldea panamefia cerca de la
frontera con la Zona.
Un soldado destacado en Fuerte
Gulick fue otro de los casos de mayo
y un joven de Albrook que cuidaba
su caballo despues del anochecer fue
picado por un mosquito infectado en
esa area. Un mosquito infectado pue-
de scr dejado en el Area por indivi-
duos con malaria que no han sido
tratados y andan de visit o de cace-
ria por esos lugares, durante la noche.
Los cuatro casos restantes de mayo
fueron de dependientes de emplea-

A pesar de que la malaria estA
present' durante todo el afio, la in-
fecci6n aumenta grandemente al
principio de la estaci6n lluviosa
junioro y julio). Por esta raz6n las
autoridades de salubridad de la Zona
del Canal solicitan a los residents
que se cuiden contra los mosqluitos y
la mejor manera de hacerlo es perma-
neciendo en interiores rodeados de
tela metAlica despubs de la caida del
El numero de casos de malaria tra-
tados en la Zona del Canal aumenta
y lo demuestran las graficas de los
61timos 10 afios. La mayoria de los
casos provienen de fuera de la Zona.
Hubo 27 casos en 1962, y 4, 7, 9 y
29 en los anos sucesivos.
Mel Boreham, entom6logo de la
Division de Sanidad, asisti6 a la re-
ciente Asamblea de Directores de
Servicios de Erradicaci6n de la Mala-
ria de Centro America, Mexico y
PanamA, y de los paises del Caribe,
en Puerto Principe, Haiti. El repre-
sent6 a la Direcci6n de Salubridad
y a la Zona del Canal.
Punto culminante de la asamblea
fue un informed sobre el nuevo Cen-
tro de Investigaci6n MalArica y la
nueva Oficina de Evaluaciones en

darAn servicios a todos los paises de
