GATUN LOCKS OVERHAUL


The east lane of Gatun Locks will
be closed to traffic at midnight Sunday
to permit preparations for locks over-
haul. It will be the first gate overhaul
at these locks since 1961.
Early Monday morning, the float-
ing crane Hercules will move into the

locks gates off their pintles and set
them on keel blocks within the locks
chambers, where they will be over-
hauled. Monday night, from 8 p.m.

New Law Adjusts

Postal Rates in

All Categories

The new postage rate law, which
becomes effective in the Canal Zone
Sunday, is the most comprehensive
revision in postal rates and regulations
ever enacted, according to R. S. Herr,
Director of Posts.
It adjusts rates in all categories of
mail except parcel post and inter-
national mail; it takes a step toward
the priority mail concept by merging
all first-class mail over 13 ounces and
all airmail over 7 ounces into a single
category which will receive airmail
service from the Canal Zone; and it
authorizes airlift of parcels up to 30
pounds going to and from Armed
Forces personnel.
Rates for regular second-class mail
will be increased an average of 24
percent and rates for regular bulk
third-class mail will go up 34 percent.
Special rate fourth-class mail for
books, recordings, films, and similar
material are increased slightly. For
specific increases in second-class,
third-class or special fourth-class rates,
consult your postmaster.
Special handling, which at present
is available for fourth-class mail, also
will be extended to third-class mail
effective January 7.
There will be no change in the
charges for special delivery, special
handling, registered mail, certified
mail, or insurance.
Planning has been under way for
several months for all new postage
stamps that will be required but they
are not yet available due to the short
time between enactment of the Postal
Revenue and Salary Act of 1967 and
the date it becomes effective. In the
meantime, some existing stamps and

chambers of the east lane will be
started. While the gates are being
repaired, other work will be carried
on in the locks chambers.
When the repair of the two gates
is completed about January 27, the
lane will be flooded again and the
gates floated back into position.
If a shipping backlog exists at this
time, the east lane will be returned to

done, the two other gates in the east
lane then will be removed by the
crane Hercules and placed in position
for repairs.

the Panama Canal's Preventive Med-
icine Division, has been named Chief,

officer in Balboa until a replacement
can be obtained.
Dr. de Boer was born in Stiens, in
the northern part of the Netherlands,
and received his medical degree at
the University of Utrecht. He interned
at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Coving-
ton, Ky.
He was staff physician for a few
years at the Dunham Tuberculosis

was in private practice for about 5
years in Lennox, near Sioux Falls,
S. Dak.
Deciding on preventive medicine
and public health as a career, he
attended the School of Public Health
at the University of Minnesota, where
he received his master's degree in
public health.
Dr. de Boer and his wife, Lia, who
also is a native of the Netherlands,

Sanders, Jr., Chief, Customs Division,
and administrator of the Canal Zone
Certificate of Citizenship Assistance
Program.
The applications of Isthmian res-
idents, civilian and military, who wish
to get Certificates of Citizenship for
themselves or dependents were
forwarded from the Canal Zone to
the New Orleans office of the U.S.
Immigration and Naturalization Serv-
ice for processing. The only ones who
will be given hearings in January will
be those persons whose applications
have been processed by that office
and who have been notified by mail
from New Orleans as to the date,
time, and place of their Canal Zone
hearing.
Certificates of Citizenship are issued
in the Canal Zone by the Immigration
and Naturalization Service of the
Department of Justice under author-
ity of a law signed by the President in
November 1966.
Those who wish to file applications
for future citizenship hearings may
obtain application forms, information,
and assistance in the preparation of
the forms from Mrs. Lois Thomas in
the Customs Division office in the
Terminal Building, Balboa. Her tele-
phone number is Balboa 4202 and
her office hours are 7 a.m. to noon
and 1 to 4 p.m., Monday through

school hours.


Canal Retirees'

Service Totals

900 Years.-Plus
Twenty-nine of the 31 Panama
Canal employees who are retiring
from the Canal organization were
present in the Board Room of the
Administration Building to receive
their retirement certificates from
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber. In
service, the retiring employees rep-
resented more than 900 years with
the Panama Canal organization.
Governor Leber expressed his
pleasure at seeing so many of the
retiring employees present at the
ceremony and expressed his apprecia-
tion for the work each had done in
the organization.
Three of those who retired in De-
cember had over 40 years service.
Eric B. Johnson, clerk in the Motor
Transportation Division, with 41
years, 9 months, and 6 days' service,
was dean of the retirees.
Next came Luther B. Matthews,
cylinder pressman (small), Panama
Canal Printing Plant, who had 40
years, 3 months, 9 days' service, and
William G. Monroe, guard supervisor,
Locks Division, who had 40 years, 15

tion with this retirement ceremony:
Matthews, in the course of his work,
printed his own retirement certificate.

Skeeter



Scooper



At Work
In case you may have seen a truck
with a large funnel-shaped device
mounted on its top, and wondered
what it was-it's a new secret (until
now) weapon of the Panama Canal's
Division of Sanitation, and is known
as a mosquito scooper.
Mel Boreham, medical entomologist
of the Division of Sanitation, designed
the mosquito scooper to be used in
an effort to find out the times the
mosquitoes are most active.
A fine mesh net bag is tied at the
end of the funnel. As the truck moves,
mosquitoes and other flying insects
are scooped up.
The medical entomologist usually
starts to collect mosquitoes just before
sundown. He drives over a specific
route for about 10 minutes. Then a
string is pulled from within the cab
of the truck and the bag is closed on
the trapped mosquitoes. Another bag
then is placed on the funnel and
another collection is added, the pre-
vious process being repeated during
the next few hours and again during
the hours before sunrise.
During one collection drive on the
Atlantic side of the Isthmus, 420 mos-
quitoes were caught in 15 minutes.
The labeled collections are taken
back to the laboratory, where they
are identified.
By comparing the numbers caught
at different times, it is possible to plot
the peaks of flight activity for a given
location..
Results from the current study show
that to avoid being bitten by mos-
quitoes it is best to remain indoors
the first hour after sundown and the
first hour just before sunrise. Mos-
quitoes continue to bite during the
night, but at a lesser rate and almost
cease biting after sunrise outside
jungle areas.
The information obtained in the
studies employing the mosquito
scooper will help the Division of
Sanitation to determine the best time
for insecticide application from the
fog trucks to get maximum mosquito
kill and to provide more comfortable
and healthy living areas.

raof New Maternity Leave Regulations


New maternity leave regulations
are contained in the new Panama
Canal Personnel Manual which be-
came effective Monday.
They define maternity leave as a
period of approved absence for in-
capacitation related to pregnancy or
confinement and provide that such
leave is chargeable to earned leave,
leave without pay, or a combination
of both.
Accumulated leave must be ex-
hausted, however, before leave with-

leave section applies to all employees
except teachers, who are covered by

justments may be planned to com-
pensate for her absence.
A employee must be placed on
maternity leave during the period
beginning no later than 6 weeks
before the expected date of delivery

Cathedral Plaza

Scene of Joint

Rally of Juntas

The Pacific Side Canal Zone Car-
nival Committee last week partici-
pated in a massive Carnival Rally
given by the Junta Permanente del
Carnaval of Panama at Cathedral
Plaza in Panama City. The Canal
Zone group, complete with Queen
candidates and their escorts, military
liaisons, and the Army and Air Force
Bands' "murga" combos in addition
to the Committee members, joined in
the festivities and the merrymaking,
highlighted by dancing and presenta-
tion of the Carnival Queen candidates
from Panama, Colon, and the Zone.
Many of the organized Carnival
groups or "comparsas" from the
capital city, including the ever-color-
ful "Los Campesinos" and "Los
Calypsos," also were .among the
crowds which packed the downtown
plaza to absorb some of the Carnival
spirit. A reception for the members
of the official Carnival groups fol-
lowed the ceremony at the home of
Blanca O. Clement, Panama Queen
candidate.
Canal Zone girls who are com-
peting for the Pacific Side Queen
title are selling tickets to determine
who will reign over the many activi-
ties which are slated over the Car-
nival season. Each ticket sold repre-
sents votes for the girls, and these
will be tabulated at three (3) vote
counts, scheduled for January 12,
and 26 and February 2 at Stevens
Circle in Balboa.

Los consejos civicos de esas dos
poblaciones, presididos por George V.
Richards, por Paraiso, y por Seabert
Haynes, por Pedro Miguel, acogieron
calurosamente la idea de unirse para
las Navidades y con el apoyo total de
ambas comunidades, que brindaron
su aporte econ6mico, lograron que la
actividad fuera todo un 6xito.
T1 i ,,-cole 2 7 rld rdirciemhrp la


noche en que se seleccionarian las
mejores decoraciones de Navidad,
ambas poblaciones eran un mar de
luces y numerosos visitantes de otras
comunidades se encontraban admi-
rando el especticulo que ofrecian
ambas poblaciones.


El Gobernador de la Zona del
Canal W. P. Leber decidi6 alentar
con su presencia a los residents de
ambas comunidades y acompafi6 a los
)ueces durante todo el tiempo que
estuvieron realizando su labor.
Tanto los residents como los visi-
tantes han quedado sumamente com-
placidos con el resultado de la com-
petencia de este afio y se espera que
el alio entrant los resultados sean
ain mejores y que otras comunidades
imiten el ejemplo de Paraiso y Pedro
Miguel.

manos del Gobernador de la Zona del
Canal W. P. Leber. Los que se jubi-
laron representaron en total mAs de
900 afios de servicio a la empresa del

El Gobernador Leber express que
se sentia complacido al ver que la
gran mayoria de los que se jubilaban
estaban presents en la ceremonia y
alab6 el trabajo que cada uno habia
hecho en la empresa.
Tres de los que se jubilaron en
diciembre tenian mis de 40 afios de

vicioi y William C. Monroe, jefe de
guardias en la Divisi6n de Esclusas,

Carries nos trae algunos informes sobre
la fundaci6n del Real de Santa Maria
y la exploraci6n de las famosas minas
de Cana, y comienza con la autorizada
opinion de don Vicente Restrepo,
quien dice que fue en las postrimerias
del siglo XVI que se descubrieron las
minas de Cana y consecuencialmente,
corresponde a esta 6poca la formaci6n
del pueblo del Real de Santa Maria.
Ya en 1683, dice Carles, Santa
Maria fue atacada por los pirates de
Sharp y al referirse a la riqueza auri-
fera de la region, el pirata Dampier
decia que "esas minas eran las mas
ricas que se habian descubierto hasta
cntonces en Am6rica". Lionel Waffer
en sus narraciones "Nuevo Viaje al
Istmo de Am6rica", asegura que las
minas de Cana "producian de diez y
ocho a veinte mil libras de oro anual-
mente". En 1750 don Manuel Mon-
tiano, Gobernador de PanamA, escri-
bia al Virrey que "las minas del Da-
rien producian cada afio mais de un
mill6n de pesos oro".
Al prcsente se desconoce la posi-
ci6n exacta de estas famosas minas.

Muchas personas consideran que el
catarro comin es la poor de todas las
enfennedades. No es la peor debido
a que le causa la muerte a un mayor
nimero de individuos, ya que no mata
a nadie. Es la peor porque es la mis
corriente de todas las enfermedades;
hace que muchas personas se sientan
un poco enfermas. Tambien, debido a
que debilita al individuo, facility que
&ste contraiga otras enfermedades
mas graves.
La mejor defense contra los cata-
rros es algo que hay que hacer antes
de que el microbio ataque. Esto es:
mantener todo el sistema en buenas
condiciones. Para lograrlo hay que
comer correctamente, tomar agua en
abundancia, dormir las horas necesa-
rias, respirar aire puro y hacer sufi-
cientes ejercicios para mantener el
cuerpo en buenas condiciones, pero
nunca de manera tan excesiva que
produzcan cansancio.
Le sigue en importancia el evitar
los resfriados, los pies humedos y
cualquier otro tipo de exposici6n, es-
pecialmente cuando se esta cansado.
El catarro es contagioso. Cada vez
que una persona que tiene catarro
tcse o estornuda disemina bacteria
en la atm6sfera que le rodea. Si usted
se encuentra cerca y aqu6llas se le
alojan en la nariz o la garganta, em-
pezaran una batalla contra las defen-
sas de su organismo; cuando el cuer-
po estate debil y las defenses bajas la
pelcita puede decidirse a favor de los
microbios.
De acuerdo con lo expuesto ante-
riomnente, sacamnos en conclusion que

catarro ha progresado hasta un punto
peligroso.
Recuerde lo que dijimos anterior-
mente. Los catarros no son temibles
por si mismos, pero facilitan que otras
enfennedades e infecciones much
mas series puedan iniciarse en el orga-
nismo.
Cuando tenga catarro, para ayudar
al organismo a luchar contra la infec-
ci6n ingiera much liquid, tales
como jugos de frutas, sopas y agua.
Una prActica muy comuin y decidi-
damente incorrect es aquella de en-
viar a un familiar o amigo a la far-
macia a comprar distintos medica-
mentos. Algunos no ofrecen ayuda al-
guna y otros resultan perjudiciales.
Si consider que necesita medicines
limitese a aqu6llas prescritas por el
medico; olvide lo que dice el vecino
o el amigo de que tal o cual medica-
mento ayud6 a su prima, etc., etc.
Con respect a las gotas nasales 6stas
se deben aplicar con moderaci6n.
Hay que tener cuidado al sonarse
la nariz, no s6lo para no diseminar el
virus sino tambi6n para protege los
oidos y evitar que se contagien con la
infecci6n. Entre los oidos y la nariz
hay pequefios pasajes que conectan el
uno con el otro; cuando se suena la
nariz con much fuerza se pueden
obstruir tales conductos.
Todo lo expuesto anteriormente re-
presenta solamente un analisis a gran-
des rasgos. Los catarros varian, por lo
tanto es possible que el suyo requicra
un trataminnto especial. No obstante,
para mantenerse saludable, eluda los
resfriados y el cansancio excesivo,
detenga el catarro al principio des-
cansando y tomando liquidos calien-
tes y lame al midico en caso de que
la fiebre suba, vera que en la plea
entire las defenses del organismo y los
microbios, usted va a llevar la mejor
parte. Hay que vencer al catarro antes
de que empiece o al menos antes de
que tome fuerza a fin de que, en la
peleita aquella de que hablamos an-
tes, el catarro no logre dejarlo incons-
ciente sobre la lona.

CAZA MOSQUITOS


ENTRA EN ACCION


Si ha visto un cami6n con un apa-
rato grande en forma de embudo co-
locado en su capota y se ha pregun-
tado la finalidad de Aste, le informa-
mos que es una nueva arma secret
(hasta ahora) de la Divisi6n de Sa-
nidad del Canal de PanamA y se le
conoce como cazador de mosquitos.
(Foto en la secci6n inglesa.)
Mel Boreham, entom6logo medico
de la Divisi6n de Sanidad, disefi6 este
aparato que se utilizarA para deter-
minar las horas en que los mosquitos
se encuentran mAs activos.
Al final del embudo hay un saco
de mallas, que sirve para atrapar los
mosquitos y otros insects, cuando el
cami6n es puesto en movimiento.
El entom6logo medico casi siempre
comienza a recoger mosquitos exacta-
mente antes de la puesta del sol. Ma-
neja en una ruta especifica por unos
10 minutes, luego se hala una cuerda
desde una casilla que se encuentra en
el cami6n y se cierra el saco dejando
atrapados a los mosquitos. Luego se
coloca otro saco en el embudo y se
aiiade otra colecci6n, repitiendose ese
process durante las siguientes horas y
de nuevo durante las horas antes de
la salida del sol.
Durante una campafia de colecci6n
en el sector AtlAntico del Istmo se re-
cogieron 420 mosquitos en 15 minu-
tos.
Las colecciones debidamente rotu-
ladas son llevadas al laboratorio donde
son identificadas.
Con la comparaci6n de las cantida-
des recogidas en horas diferentes, es
possible determinar la cantidad mixi-

solicitudes deberAn presentar la justi-
ficaci6n para tal excepci6n y estar
acompafiadas de un certificado medi-
co que indique que la empleada
puede trabajar.
Por lo tanto, la licencia por gravi-
dez solicitada antes de las 6 semanas
precedentes al alumbramiento puede
ser aprobada si la empleada present
certificado medico de que no puede
trabajar o si la unidad donde presta
servicios determine que puede dejar
libre a la empleada.
En casos de gravidez, la licencia
sin pago s6lo se le otorgarA a emplea-
das no temporales.
El adelanto de la licencia por razo-
nes de gravidez no se concederA por
lo general. Una excepci6n a esta regla
general podrA concederla el Director
de Personal por recomendaci6n de los
Directores o Jefes de Unidades Inde-
pendientes donde las circunstancias
individuals indiquen que la emplea-
da regresarA a trabajar y donde se
determine que la aprobaci6n de un
adelanto en la licencia seria benefi-
cioso para la agencia.


ma de mosquitos que vuelan en un
lugar dado.
Los resultados de un studio co-
rriente demuestran que para evitar las
picaduras de los mosquitos, lo mejor
es permanecer dentro de una casa las
primeras horas despu6s de la puesta
del sol y durante las primeras horas
antes de la salida del sol. Los mos-
quitos continlan picando durante la
noche, pero en cantidad menor y casi
cesan de picar despues de la salida
del sol en las Areas montafiosas.
La informaci6n obtenida en los es-
tudios con el empleo del cazador de
mosquitos ayudarA a la Divisi6n de
Sanidad a determinar el mejor tiem-
po para aplicar insecticides con ca-
miones de neblina para lograr matar
la mAxima cantidad de mosquitos y
ofrecer asi Areas mAs c6modas y
saludables.
