Channel Clearing Job "Outstanding

A commendation for the "outstanding achievements"
of those who had roles in clearing the Panama Canal
channel after a ship sank Sunday and blocked the Canal
has come from Secretary of the Army Stanley R. Resor.
Addressed to Gov. W. P. Leber, the letter said:
"Dear Governor Leber:
"Please accept and convey to the members of your
staff and to the employees of the Panama Canal Com-
pany my highest respect for your outstanding achieve-
ments in handling this past Sunday's mishap. Your actions
in averting a near disaster once again remind us all of
our continued pride and esteem for your entire organiza-
tion. In recognition of the professional competence and
devotion to duty of all, well done.
At the time word of the letter from Secretary Resor
was received, letters of commendation from Governor
Leber were going out to the Canal officials most directly
involved, singling out several employees for special
These letters went to Capt. Donald A. Dertien, USN,
Marine Director; Capt. A. L. Gallin, USN, Chief, Navi-
gation Division; Julian S. Hearne, Chief, Dredging Divi-
sion; and M. B. Nickel, Chief, Industrial Division.
The Governor's letters commended the personnel of
these units for their "magnificent performance" and asked

that each of the officials express his personal thanks to
all concerned.
Special mention went to Capt. Richard C. Sergeant,
Port Captain, Balboa; Robert W. Lowry, Assistant Chief,
Dredging Division; and Burton L. Powell, Salvage
Master and Master Diver, Industrial Division.
Powell's performance, the Governor's letter said, was
"outstanding in proposing and guiding the successful
course of action."
Captain Sergeant's performance was cited as "out-
standing in conning this large, unwieldy vessel through
the remainder of the Cut to safe moorings at Gamboa."
Lowry's performance was labeled outstanding in
directing the operations of the Diedging Division "and
coordinating their efforts with others participating."
"Without the demonstrated expertise" of these three,
the Governor said, "the operation may well have failed
or been seriously delayed."
The Shozan Maru blocked Gaillard Cut shortly after
noon Sunday with her bow resting on the bottom in 47
feet of water. She was raised with compressed air and
cleared the Cut at 4:44 a.m., Monday, allowing transit
traffic to resume.
As the SPILLWAY went to press, letters to Governor
Leber were starting to arrive from shipping companies
and shipping agents extending congratulations to all
personnel involved for the efficiency and speed with
which the operation was handled and traffic restored.

"Now watch your step!" Capt. Alvin L. Gallin, Navigation Division Chief,
right, seems to be saying to Panama Canal Pilot Henry K. Johnstone as he
presents him with a check for $50 and an award certificate for suggesting
an improved method of boarding vessels. At the left is Capt. Richard C.
Sergeant, Balboa Port Captain.

About Those Ship Ladders...

Ooops... and SPLASH!!!

Capt. Henry K. Johnstone, a
veteran Balboa pilot, is a man of
action as well as ideas.
But he didn't mean to go to ex-
tremes when he made a suggestion
recently that a safer method be used
for pilots and boarding officers in
boarding large ships, especially
those arriving at the Panama Canal
in ballast or in a lightened condition.
Early in the morning of the day
before he was to be given a $50
check and an award certificate in
recognition of his improved method
of rigging ladders to aid in boarding
vessels, he fell into Balboa harbor.
The accident occurred when a
Jacob's ladder gave way as he was
going aboard the freighter SS Man-
darin from the Panama Canal launch
Drum on the off-shore side of the
ship docked at pier 14. He was
promptly rescued by the members of
the crew of the launch and sent to
Corgas Hospital for examination.
Captain Johnstone received his
cash award later from Port Captain
Richard C. Sergeant during a private
ceremony and the crew of the Drum
got letters of commendation from the
Port Captain for their quick thinking
and speedy rescue work.

Although the conditions under
which Captain Johnstone was drop-
ped into the drink did not follow
closely those described in his sug-
gestion for a safer method of board-
ing vessels, the circumstances could
be called coincidental.
At present, boarding of vessels at
the outer anchorage in Balboa and
Limon Bay in Cristobal is made by
means of an accommodation ladder
or a Jacob's ladder.
The pilot pointed out in his sug-
gestion that the accommodation
ladders were unsatisfactory and were,
in fact, downright dangerous in
rough weather, especially on large
vessels in ballast.
A Jacob's ladder, he said, neces-
sitates a long difficult climb up the
ship side, sometimes as much as 40
feet. He thought the accommodation
ladder and the Jacob's ladder could
be used jointly in such a manner that
the accommodation ladder could be
lowered to within 10 feet of the
water and that access to this ladder
be made by means of the Jacob's
ladder, lowered to within 2 feet of
the water. He added that the ladder
must be well illuminated at night

Ir I

Flashing Light

Means STOP!
red light on a moving ambulance, fire
engine or police vehicle is flashing,"
cautions Canal Zone Police Chief
SE. S. Shipley.
Canal Zone regulations require
that motorists and cyclists pull off on
the side of the road and stop when-
ever the red lights are flashing and
sirens are sounding on moving emer-
gency vehicles.
The warning comes due to the fact
that several motorists recently have
failed to heed the regulations that
govern right of way for emergency
vehicles at such times.

Folklore Shows

Start Saturday

At Panama Viejo
Starting tomorrow, the Tourist In-
stitute of Panama will sponsor the
traditional folklore shows that are
presented during the dry season at
the ruins of the Cathedral of the old
City of Panama.
The shows, to be presented for five
consecutive Saturdays during the
month of March, will last 1 hour and
will start promptly at 10:30 a.m.
The first group to be presented this
year will be the Group of Native
Dances of the Panama National Uni-
versity, under the direction of Mrs.
Dora de Zarate, well-known Pan-
amanian folklorist.
Other native folkloric groups,
among the best in the country, will
perform for programs on the follow-
ing Saturdays.

Horse Show March 9,10
The Fort Clayton Riding Club will
present its annual horse show on
Saturday, March 9, and Sunday,
March 10. Riding clubs from other
stables on the Isthmus are expected
to participate.
The riding events on Saturday will
start at 10 a.m., and will feature
western riding.
The Sunday program, starting at
1 p.m., will feature English and
western equitation and jumping.
Refreshments will be available.

It's Rating

Month for

This is "rating month" for all em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organi-
zation. Purpose of the Annual Per-
formance Rating Plan is to provide
a method to evaluate the work per-
formance of employees in order to
recognize their merits and contribu-
tion to efficiency and economy.
It also is felt that it helps improve
employee performance by: Strength-
ening supervisor-employee relation-
ships; identifying work standards and
requirements; informing employees
of these standards and requirements;
recognizing commendatory and out-
standing performance; recognizing
and correcting work deficiencies;
providing a guide to personnel
Supervisors are required to discuss
with and notify employees of their
ratings. There are 3 ratings: "Out-
standing," "Satisfactory," and "Un-
satisfactory." If you are rate "Satis-
factory," your supervisor must notify
you orally or in writing. Written
justification is required for "Out-
standing" and "Unsatisfactory."
Criteria 'are:
A. Quality of Performance
(1) Thoroughness; acceptability
and adequacy of results.
(2) Dependability; accuracy of
(3) Orderliness and neatness of
(4) Technical skill with which
important procedures, in-
struments, or machines
are employed in perform-
ing required duties.
(5) Original suggestions or con-
tributions to improvement
in work methods.
(6) Effectiveness in getting good
work done in a unit.
B. Productiveness
(1) Amount of work done.
(2) Industry, application of time,
interest, and energy to
(3) Planning work to utilize best
time and resources.
(4) Speed, promptness in com-
pleting assignments.

IP Number

Means "Full"

IP Number
Some difficulties have been en-
countered with Payroll Deduction
Service Orders (Form No. 2016)
through some customers not giving
their correct IP numbers-which re-
sults in rejections by the computer.
Customers are reminded that since
the first pay day of this year, an addi-
tional digit has been assigned to all
IP numbers. The full IP number
should be used, including the added
digit, or a vast amount of otherwise
unnecessary work is required.
Itis believed a majority of the
wrong number" IP listings have
come about via telephone requests,
such as for major appliance repair,
with the caller forgetting to give the
correct full IP number.
For in-person purchases, cashiers
should ask to see IP cards-and cus-
tomers should show them without
being asked. This will avoid possible
customer forgetfulness about the
additional digit.


March 1, 1968

March Red Cross Month;

Zone Support Is Cited

Gov. W. P. Leber has called atten-
tion to President Johnson's proclama-
tion designating March 1968 as Red
Cross Month.
The Governor observed that Canal
Zone residents, well aware of the
work carried on by the Red Cross
in both war and peace, have actively
supported it on a year-round basis
through generous contributions to the
Combined Federal Agencies Cam-
The Canal Zone public has
promptly answered the call for help
during times of emergency, the Gov-
ernor added. One of these was during
the Pacora-Chepo floods when food,
clothing, medicines, and other ur-
gently needed goods were collected
for the victims.
The Canal Zone Red Cross chap-
ter, with its volunteers, has devoted
its time helping others in schools,
hospitals, and members of the Armed
Forces in Vietnam. With the con-
tinued support of the public, it can
continue serving fellow man, he said.
President Johnson's proclamation
says, in part:
"On every battlefield, a flag of
mercy flies. Its white field bears a
Red Cross-the universal symbol of
human compassion.
"Under that flag, there are no
enemies, no racial or religious ani-
mosities. There are only brothers.
"The flag of the Red Cross flies in
thousands of American cities and
communities. Thirty million Amer-
icans are Red Cross members. Their
support is an affirmation of the funda-
mental humanity of the American

Soul Benders Debut
The Soul Benders will make their
first appearance at the Balboa Teen
Club tonight and will play from 7:30
to 11:30 p.m. for the teen dancers.
Members are admitted free. Non-
members pay a nominal fee. Dress
is sportswear.

"In the tragedy and loneliness of
war, the Red Cross is a familiar
friend and companion to our men
and women in uniform. It is with
them in Vietnam, in 27 other nations
where Americans serve, and in our
bases at home.
"Not only wars but trials of storm
and earthquake, flood, and fire,
summon the Red Cross to service.
Wherever disaster strikes, the Red
Cross is there with food, shelter, and
relief from suffering-as it was last
year in the ravaged valleys and
lowlands of Alaska and Texas.
"And every day of the year, the
Red Cross serves all America with
its programs to provide blood, and
to teach first aid, water safety, and
citizenship to tomorrow's citizens.
DON B. JOHNSON, President of
the United States of America and
Honorary Chairman of the American
Red Cross, do hereby designate
March 1968 as Red Cross Month."

Heart and Blood Vessel Diseases Account

For 40 Percent of Deaths in Canal Zone

Diseases of the heart and blood
vessels were responsible for 56 deaths
in the Canal Zone during the past
year-approximately 40 percent of
the total of 139 deaths.

Heart attack is America's deadliest
enemy, claiming about 500,000 lives
yearly. While it strikes mainly in
middleage, or later, the time to start
safeguarding against heart attack,
Heart Association experts say, is
early childhood, when lifelong habits
are formed. Good health and heart
habits begun now can reduce later
risk of heart attack.

Intensive research is going for-
ward to find the causes of hardening
of the arteries, which sets the stage
for heart attack. Until this knowledge

is available, physicians generally
agree that the individual can do
much to improve his chances of
living longer by minimizing certain
risk factors.
By setting a good example, parents
can not only encourage their chil-
dren to form risk-minimizing habits
that may last a lifetime, but at the
same time protect their own hearts.
Here are basic suggestions for
1. Get the latest heart-saving facts
and share them with your children.
Your Heart Association, a United
Fund agency, has free literature on
the role played by the heart and
circulatory system in sustaining
human life. Give children the facts
they should know about heart attack,
stroke, rheumatic fever, and other
diseases which attack this system.
2. Stress the importance of normal
weight. Obesity often begins in
3. Form good diet habits by serv-
ing more unsaturated fats (mostly
vegetable oils) in place of saturated
(mostly animal) fats, and fewer foods
rich in cholesterol.
4. Encourage them to keep phy-
sically fit through regular exercise,
and, if possible, make regular and
moderate physical activity a family
5. Teach children that smoking is
bad for health. Don't smoke yourself.
Promote a type of self-discipline
which will encourage the child not
to start smoking.
6. Make doctor check-ups a
family routine.
Risks of heart attack, of course,
increase with age. Males are more
vulnerable than females. Some farm-

Are Due Soon
Only 2 weeks remain for those who
wish to qualify for the midyear
apprentice group to file their appli-
cations with the Central Employment
Office of the Canal Zone Civilian
Personnel Policy Coordinating Board.
All applicants who file on or
before March 15 will be given a
screening test. Those passing the
screening test will be given a final
examination on April 6. It is not
expected that another final examina-
tion will be given for some time, so
all those interested in being con-
sidered for this year's apprentice class
should file immediately.
Persons now on the register of eli-
gibles for Apprentice and Learner as
a result of their having passed the
examination given on March 18,
1967, may recompete in this examina-
tion for the purpose of improving
their scores, if they so desire.
They will not be required to retake
the preliminary screening test; how-
ever, they should report in person to
the Central Employment Office in
Ancon or Cristobal, C.Z., so that
their names and addresses can be
listed for notification of the basic
final examination.
Application can be made at the
Central Employment Office, Ancon
or Cristobal, by filing a Canal Zone
Form 513. Applicants will be sched-
uled immediately for the screening

recently published the Canal Zone

providing information on all aspects
of Canal Zone philately to members
and interested readers. This is the first
issue in 13 years of the journal, which
is to be a quarterly publication.
The editor is Gilbert N. Plass,
Box 576, Richardson, Tex., 75080,
and it is being published at State

tive for several years, but interest in
Canal Zone philately has prompted
the reorganization of the group.
The newest issue of the Canal
Zone Philatelist contains informa-
tion on Canal Zone rarities, new
discoveries, classification problems,
1968 Scott Catalogue information
and an auction sales report. One page
is devoted to an interesting article
on Canal Zone counterfeits. Another
article on Canal Zone Post Office
Seals 1907-10 will be of interest to
A list of members of the Canal
Zone Study Group, giving their
names and addresses is included in
this first issue of the quarterly. Active
membership totals 165.
Editor of the Canal Zone Phila-
telist is Gilbert N. Plass.
Persons interested in learning more
about the Canal Zone Study Group
and in having a copy of this issue
of the Canal Zone Philatelist may
send a 10 cent coin or mint U.S.
postage to cover the cost of mailing

Gamboa Pool is popular with the tiny tot set. Here's Sean Holland on the
board. He can jump from the high board and the low board and with no
help can swim across the deep pool which is 10 yards across and 12 feet
deep. His little friend in the water (almost) is Randy Agee, who is 2, and
he can also jump from the high board and swims 25 yards in deep water
Sean is son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Holland. Holland teaches at Curundu

March 1, 1968

Capt. Axton T. Jones, Transportation and Terminals Bureau Director, was
doubly honored by Elbert S. Waid Post No. 2, American Legion, at a
ceremony at the Sky Room, Cristobal. Capt. Jones was awarded the Legion's
"Medal of Valor" in recognition of outstanding patriotism and courage
which contributed to the advancement of American Legion programs and
activities, and the American Legion Citation for Meritorious Service for
meritorious service and loyal cooperation. Mrs. Jones pins the "Medal of
Valor" on her husband.

The third annual Pacific Side Ele-
mentary Physical Fitness Meet will
be held March 15 at 7 p.m. in Balboa
Stadium. More than 200 boys and
girls aged 10, 11, and 12 will rep-
resent 11 elementary schools on the
Pacific side. These boys and girls
were selected from those having the
highest averages on the American
Association for Health, Physical
Education and Recreation (AAHPER)
The AAHPER Youth Fitness Test
was given to more than 1,400 boys
and girls in grades 5 and 6 at the
11 schools. The test battery includes
seven items. They are: pull-up (with
flexed-arm hang for girls); sit-up;
shuttle-run; standing broad jump;
50-yard dash; softball throw for dis-
tance; and 600-yard run-walk.
The original test battery was devel-
oped in 1957 as a result of a national
conference called by President
Eisenhower to consider the fitness
of American youth. The test became
a technique for improving physical
fitness as well as a stimulus to en-
riching opportunities for physical
activity in schools.
The President's Council on Phys-
ical Fitness was set up by President
Eisenhower. Under President Ken-
nedy the work of the council was
expanded, and it is being continued

Terming the suggestion a definite

that this would be the preferred

A bordo de su embarcaci6n, la lancha "Drum", los tripulantes de la misma
reciben una carta de encomio debido a su agilidad mental y a la rapidez
con que rescataron al prActico del Canal Capitin Henry K. Johnstone, cuando
cay6 de una escala de jarcias, al subir al carguero "Mandarin" desde la
lancha "Drum". De izquierda a derecha: Americo Barreto, marinero; Robert
H. Elliot, operario de la lancha; y R. K. Adams, maestre de la Rada de
Balboa, quien hizo la entrega de las cartas en menci6n.

Una Sugerencia

Muy Justificada

El CapitAn Henry K. Johnstone,
veteran prActico del Canal, resident
en Balboa, es un hombre tanto de
acci6n como de ideas.
El no pensaba llegar a los extre-
mos cuando hizo una sugerencia re-
cientemente, para que los prActicos
y funcionarios de abordaje usaran un
mitodo mas seguro para ir a bordo
de las naves grandes, especialmente
aquellas que llegan al Canal de Pa-
namA en lastre o con las bordas
demasiado altas.
En la madrugada del dia antes de
que se le fuera a entregar un cheque
por $50 y un certificado de premio
en reconocimiento a su m6todo me-
jorado de aparejar las escaleras para
ayudar a subir a los barcos, cay6 al
agua en la Bahia de Balboa.
El accident ocurri6 cuando una
escala de jarcias cedi6 en el moment
en que el Capitin Johnstone subia al
carguero Mandarin, desde la lancha
Drum, del Canal de PanamA, por la
borda externa de la nave que estaba
acoderada al Muelle 14. Fue rApida-
mente rescatado por los tripulantes
de la lancha y enviado al Hospital
El Capitin Johnstone recibi6 su
premio en efectivo despues, de ma-
nos del Capitin del Puerto, Richard
C. Sergeant, durante una ceremonial
privada, y la tripulaci6n de la lancha

parte del CapitAn del Puerto, debido
a su agilidad mental y al rApido
rescate que efectuaron.

La Srta. Iris Maria Peralta trabaja
desde hace mis de 1 aiio como ofici-

Economia de la Oficina de Planifica-

da del florido Valle de la Luna. Sien-

Mercantil con especializaci6n en Se-
cretariado en el Instituto Pan Ame-
ricano. Ingres6 luego a la Universidad
National de Panama en donde acaba
de obtener su titulo de Licenciada en
Ciencias Econ6micas con especializa-
ci6n en Comercio y el de Contadora.
El trabajo de graduaci6n que presen-
t6 la Srta. Peralta, conjuntamente con

dora que otorga la Universidad de
PanamA. Su tesis se intitul6: "Consi-

El prop6sito que la impuls6 a esco-

algo al pdblico sobre las ventajas
que ofrecen los seguros y sobre los
derechos que tiene el asegurado sobre
su p6liza ya que la mayoria de los
que tienen seguros no estAn familia-

Dos paquetes de cigarrillos al dia
pueden costar a un fumador de 25
afios 8 aiios de su vida, de acuerdo
con un informed recibido por la Di-
recci6n de Salubridad.
El var6n promedio no fumador, a
esa edad, puede esperar vivir un pro-
medio de 48.6 afios mas, mientras
que el fumador empedernido s61o
puede esperar vivir unos 40.4 afios
Estas estadisticas, basadas en un
studio epidemiol6gico hecho en
447.196 sujetos varones, fueron obte-
nidas por el Dr. E. Cuyler Ham-
mond, de la Sociedad Americana
contra el CAncer.
El studio mostr6 que el fumador
de cigarrillos, especialmente el que
fuma much, tiene menos probabili-
dades de Ilegar a viejo que el que no
fuma. Las posibilidades de vivir hasta
65, 75 y 85 ailos son respectivamente
de un 77.7, 52.3 y 19.2 por ciento
para el var6n de 25 afios que no
fuma, mientras que para uno que se
fuma 40 cigarrillos al dia o mais son
de 54, 25.7 y 6.5 por ciento.
Los que fuman poco viven mas
que los que fuman much, pero el
fumar, aunque sea unos nueve ciga-
rrillos al dia acorta la existencia.
Entre los no fumadores, de 25 afios
de edad, 66.7 por ciento pueden es-
perar vivir hasta los 70 afios; las po-
sibilidades de alcanzar dicha edad
son s61o de un 52.4 por ciento para
aquellos que se fuman de uno a
nueve cigarrillos al dia.

sido siempre un problema, no s6lo
para los practices, funcionarios de
abordaje y pasabarcos, sino que
tambien para los agents navieros.
