E&C Bureau

'67 Winner

For Safety

The Panama Canal's Engineering
and Construction Bureau, for the first
time since the Canal organization's
safety award plan was inaugurated
in 1953, has been awarded the
Governor-President's Annual Safety
Trophy for the calendar year 1967.
The handsome large trophy was
presented by Gov. W. P. Leber to
Col. James A. Betts, Director of the
Panama Canal's Engineering and
Construction Bureau, in a ceremony
in the Board Room of the Administra-
tion Building, attended by the Pan-
ama Canal bureau directors and divi-
sion chiefs of the Engineering and
Construction Bureau.
Governor Leber pointed out that
the Annual Safety Trophy was earned
by the Engineering and Construction
Bureau as a result of its every day
effort in reducing its 1967 disabling
injury rate by 42 percent below its
previous 3-year average rate. This
Bureau totalled more than 1 million
man-hours without a disabling injury
between October 4, 1967, and
January 9, 1968, for which the Bu-
reau also earned the National Safety
Council's Award of Merit.
"This award places on the bureau
and its people the motivation to keep
up the good work," said Colonel
Betts in accepting the award on
behalf of the bureau. "The bureau's
safety record reflects the efforts and
attitudes of the first line supervisors
and the people."
Under the Canal organization's
safety award plan, an Annual Safety
Trophy is awarded by the Governor
to the bureau achieving the highest
percentage of improvement in its
disabling injury frequency rate over
its own previous calendar 3-year
average rate, providing no fatal acci-
dent was caused in the bureau during
the year for which the award is made.
The Engineering and Construction
Bureau, in receiving the trophy, did
so in the face of some close competi-
tion from the three next highest bu-
reaus, Transportation and Terminals,
Civil Affairs, and Marine. The com-
petition was closer in 1967 than it
ever was, it was pointed out, which
indicates the extra effort being put
forth by everyone to place the Canal
organization up front in President
Johnson's Mission Safety-70 Program.

Safety Officer

Of E&C Bureau

Receives Award
Melvin F. Millard, Safety Officer
and Traffic Technician of the Pan-
ama Canal's Engineering and Con-
struction Bureau, who is retiring after
25 years' Canal service, will sail,
accompanied by his wife, next
Thursday, on the SS Cristobal to
start a new life in the United States.
After the Cristobal docks in New
Orleans, Mr. and Mrs. Millard will
go first to Riviera Beach, Fla., where
they plan to reside, and then will
travel to New York State for a visit
with family members there.
He takes with him the Panama
Canal's Superior Service Award,
presented to him by Gov. W. P.
Leber, in official recognition and
commendation "for a superior record
of performance achieved during his
many years of exemplary service for
the Panama Canal Company and
Canal Zone Government."
Millard was born in Paterson, N.J.,
but grew up in Oneonta, N.Y., and
attended schools in that area.

Proposal for Housing Rental

Rate Increase Being Studied

Announcement by Gov. W. P.
Leber that he is considering a pro-
posal that housing rental rates in
both U.S. and Latin American com-
munities be increased was the major
item of interest at the last U.S. Civic
Council Executive Session.
Main reason for the increase is the
rising cost of maintenance, he said.
The increases are to be made effec-
tive July 1, but amounts of increases
are still under study.
In the discussion that followed,
Mrs. Darleen Ashby, president of the
Pacific Civic Council, spoke of the
time lapse in the painting of quarters
and limitations of grounds mainte-
Governor Leber later, in regard to
improvements in housing, said an
effort is being made to look ahead,
to see what the costs may be and
the amount of money required. There
are roughly about 800 houses worth
fixing up, for they are structurally
sound, he said, and with the invest-
ment of a little money could be made
into livable modern homes.
Mrs. Dorothy Selstad of Coco Solo
asked that Observatory hours be set
to enable families with children to
come from the Atlantic side, probably
by bus or some type of tour set-up.
Governor Leber suggested that
such visits might be on an appoint-
ment basis.
The ski dock area at Gatun is
choked with aquatic vegetation,
Richard L. Johnston, president of the
Gatun Civic Council, reported and
emphasized the danger to small
Mrs. Doris Sanders, president of the
Cristobal- Margarita- Brazos Heights
Civic Council, said a report already
had been made to the Dredging

Division and seaweed destruction has
been ordered in that area.
Speaking on the matter of parking
spaces at Gorgas Hospital Annex,
Dr. Teodoro A. Arias, representative
of Ancon-Balboa Heights, pointed
out that when Sections A and B are
opened the patient load will increase
with attendant increase in parking
problems. He suggested that present
parking places on roads be marked,
as a possible factor in conserving
Governor Leber agreed that the
parking area is too congested and
added that sometime in the future,
when funds are available, multistory
parking may be the answer. But, he
noted, this would be expensive.
In reference to the pap smear tests,
Dr. Teodoro Arias stated that the
Cancer Society is helping meet the
bill and that the backlog is rapidly
being cut down.
Mrs. Selstad mentioned the finan-
cial problems new employees some-
times face and F. R. Johnson, Assist-

Forecast Wins Economist Plaudits;

Son of Teacher at Ancon School

Dr. Everett G. Dillman, son of
Mrs. Maxine Dillman of Balboa, a
1950 graduate of Balboa High
School, has prepared a 50-page,
5-year economic forecast for Rust
Tractor, a heavy industry firm of
Albuquerque, N. Mex., according to
an article in a recent issue of The
Dealer, a monthly publication of the
Caterpillar Tractor Co.
Dr. Dillman, an economist and past
director of the Bureau of Business
Research, University of New Mexico,
produced a 5-year plan which has
yielded important results for the Rust
Not an expert in heavy industry,
Dr. Dillman based his detailed fore-
cast on published sources, interviews
with key personnel in private and
Government agencies and made his
projections on the basis of three fac-

Islands, and the United States will be

nos de Venezuela and three subsi-
diaries of International Telephone
and Telegraph.

tors-input-output, value added, and
employment. He also analyzed all
markets served by Rust.
The president of the firm, John L.
Rust, in praise of the forecast by
Dr. Dillman, says, "For one thing it
has increased our funding capabilities
as banks are more willing to
lend money if they see your busi-
ness is proceeding in an orderly and
progressive manner."
Dr. Dillman has also held the posi-
tion of personnel director of the City
Management of Albuquerque.
While at Balboa High School,
Dr. Dillman, was active in sports,
especially football. He also was a
cadet in the ROTC and was granted
an ROTC scholarship to the Univer-
sity of New Mexico. He received his
doctorate in economics from the Uni-
versity of Texas which he attended
on a Ford Foundation scholarship.
Dr. Dillman and his wife and three
children live in Albuquerque.
His mother, who teaches at Ancon
Elementary School, came to the Isth-
mus with her parents in 1907. Dr.
Dillman's late father, Noe Everett
Dillman, was a heavy equipment
operator in the Maintenance Division
and had almost 30 years' service when
he died in 1958.

Nutrition and You Lists Closings

This is the sixth of a series of
nutrition discussions bu Mrs. Shirley
0. )ean,. Public health Nutritionist
with te Division of Prercentive Med-
icine. She/c also teachers nutrition at
Canal Zonre College'.

Fruits and vegetables are gathered
into the third of the Basic Four Food
Groups. This group includes the
largest variety of colorful and appe-
tizing foods which are important to
the body; and yet probably it is the
least appreciated and least used of
the four food groups.
The case for fruits and vegetables:
First, they offer a generous con-
tribution of essential nutrients-
1. Vitamin A
to promote growth and repair
of body tissue
to help maintain normal vision
and healthy eyes
to help maintain healthy skin
and lining of the mouth and
2. Vitamin C
to help form the cementing ma-
terial that holds cells together
this cementing material is neces-
to help maintains firm,
healthy gums
to help build resistance to
to help build and main-
tain bones, muscle,
and blood
to help heal bone frac-
tures and wounds,
3. Carbohydrate
to furnish energNy.
4. Iron
to help form hemoglobin and
prevent anemia.
5. Calciull
to build and maintain bones and
to allow normal reaction of the
nerves, muscles, and heart
to help in proper clotting of the
Second, fruits and vegetables con-
tain a tough fiber called cellulose.
This cannot be digested by the body
and, therefore, performs no essential
metabolic function. However, be-
cause it is indigestible, this fiber gives
bulk and texture to the waste pro-
ducts in the intestine. In so doing,
it aids normal bowel function alnd
helps prevent constipation.
Third, fruits and vegetables add
variety to meals. Any one family will
follow pretty much the same meal
pattern or outline day by day by day.
In addition, the specific foods used
at breakfast and lunch are very often
much the same day by day. A greater
variety of foods is used for the even-
ing meal, but even here habits are
firmly rooted. One of the easiest ways
to add variety and new interest to a

tired menu is through the varied
colors, textures, and flavors of fruits
and vegetables.
Four or more servings daily from
this group will provide the necessary
amounts of the essential nutrients.
But not all fruits and vegetables are
of equal nutritional value.
One of the four servings must be
rich in Vitamin A. The Vitamin A-
rich foods are any of the dark green
or deep yellow-orange fruits and
vegetables. A list of the more com-
mon ones used here would include
carrots, pumpkin, the dark yellow-
orange squashes, yam, broccoli, mus-
tard, spinach, and other dark leafy
greens, all peppers, mangoes, papaya,
and tomatoes.
There are other foods which con-
tain Vitamin A (whole or fortified
milk, butter, and egg yolk), but it
would be very difficult to meet the
Vitamin A requirement in the diet
without eating one of the fruits and
vegetables mentioned.
Another of the servings of fruits
and vegetables must be one rich in
Vitamin C. For this vitamin we all
think first of oranges and grapefruit,
that is, the citrus fruits. True, these
are the best sources. But here on the
Isthmus we are lucky to have other
fruits of equal value: mangoes, papa-
ya, guava, strawberries, and melons.
These fruits lmay be substituted in
equal amounts for oranges or grape-
fruits. Then there are other foods
which also are useful in meeting the
Vitamin C requirement.
These foods are broccoli, cabbage,
spinach, green peppers, and tomatoes.

Found Here
The finding of some potentially
explosive pellets in the Fort Kobbe
Beach and Venado Beach areas has
prompted a safety warning for per-
sons to avoid handling any such
items which may be found.
U.S. Army Forces Southern Com-
mand said that about 25 cylindrical
powder grains used as propellant in
World War II coast artillery shells
had been discovered recently. They
are about %" in diameter and 2
inches long, and have seven pinholes
bored in each end. The pellets are
highly combustible.
Persons discovering any of the
pellets, or any other military-type
items which might be dangerous,
should mark their location and then
immediately notify military police
at Fort Kobbe or security police at
Howard AFB.

Propellant grains found recently on
Pacific side West bank beaches are
highly combustible when exposed to
sufficient heat, such as from a match,
cigarette, or flame. Residue of World
War II munitions, the grains are
brown in color and have seven pin-
holes in a circular pattern at each
end. They should not be handled.

(Continued from p. 1)
of her interest and dedication to this
cause are a number of historical
documents pertaining to Panama and
the Canal construction era which are
in the safekeeping of the Canal Zone
Among the many items gathered
for posterity are clippings from old
Isthmian newspapers, scrapbooks
containing old pictures which tell the
story of the construction of the Canal
and life on the Isthmus at that time,
letters of appointments made by the
Isthmian Canal Commission, and
other objects of memorabilia.
The society also has given to the
library furniture from the old Wash-
ington Hotel, fans, a ladies handbag,
and comb and hat. These objects on
display at the Canal Zone Library-
Museum were given to the society
by Col. and Mrs. Daniel E. Wright,
who were on the Isthmus in 1904.
The Isthmian Historical Society
took a leading part in the celebration
of the Theodore Roosevelt Cen-
tennial on the Isthmus in-1958.
Of special interest in the library
display are true stories portraying
life and work on the Isthmus of Pan-
ama during Canal construction days.
These stories -won first, second, and
third place in a contest sponsored by
the society in 1963, the 50th anni-
versary of the Panama Canal.

Members of Scout Troop 10, Gamboa, present the first litter bag to Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt in preparation for their
antilitter campaign which begins Saturday. From left: Keller Heard, assistant patrol leader; James Mullins, senior
patrol leader; David Teller, patrol leader; William Keepers, scoutmaster, and Lieutenant Governor Parfitt. The
Lieutenant Governor, past president of the Canal Zone Scout Council, said he was glad to see the scouts this
civic minded and declared they are doing a fine job in the program.

Gamboa Scout Troop Launching

Antilitter Campaign Saturday

Boy Scout Troop 10 of Gamboa
has set Saturday as the kickoff day
for its "Clean Up The Canal Zone
and Keep It Clean" campaign.
The campaign will consist of two
parts. The first will be taken care of
by the organization's regular main-
tenance program, which will dispose
of any litter that now blemishes
streets and townsites. The second
part, designed to keep more litter
from being added, will be given its
boost through the mass distribution
of non-permanent paper litter bags
to motorists on the Pacific side.
It is hoped that the Atlantic com-
munities will pick up the ball if this
campaign is a success. The purpose
in distributing the litter bags is to
show motorists the merits of pur-
chasing and using permanent ones.
Pedestrians are reminded that
litter should be disposed of in trash
cans which are available.
The campaign was brought about
through the efforts of the scouts in
Troop 10 after a survey revealed
(1) the litter problem is growing,
(2) a majority of those questioned
did not have litter bags in their cars,

Safety Officer

(Continued from p. 1)
His first Canal employment was as
a switchboard operator in the Elec-
trical Division in 1943. He was in
charge of switching and dispatching
operations at either Gatun Power
Station or Madden Power Station,
and the family resided in Gatun.
In 1947 he transferred to Madden
Power Station and the family moved
to Pedro Miguel, which at that time
was a U.S.-citizen community.
He was promoted to general oper-
ator, Electric Power Branch, in
1949; to Safety Inspector, Electrical
Division in 1951, and then to Safety
Engineer, Electrical and Contract
and Inspection Divisions.
Since 1954 he has held the posi-
tion he occupied at retirement.
His major hobby was the Balboa
Gun Club, although he also is a
stamp collector. For several years he
coached the Junior Division of the
Balboa Gun Club.
The Millards have a son and a
daughter, both married and both
living on the Isthmus. Their son is
Kenneth Millard of Ancon, an elec-
trician leader at Pedro Miguel Locks,
and their daughter is Barbara Armi-
stead, wife of Howard M. Armistead,
who is an armature winder, Mira-
flores Locks.

(3) a majority would use litter
bags if they had them, and
(4) public opinion seemed to be
in favor of such a campaign.
It should also be noted that the
Canal Zone attracts a very large
number of visitors daily and the
campaigning scouts feel residents
should cooperate in antilitter efforts
as a matter of pride in appearance.
The campaign against litter is a
community service and all funds will
come from the Troop's "Good Turn"
fund. No donations will be accepted.
If you wish to cooperate, it is
suggested that you purchase and use
a litter bag.
Your comments on this project
will be welcomed. The address is:
Troop 10, c/o Canal Zone Council,
Inc., BSA, Drawer D, Balboa, C.Z.
The scouts have been working
nightly for weeks to prepare the
bags. Their enthusiasm can be
summed up in the words of their
Scoutmaster, William D. Keepers,
"If you could see the way they
attack this thing . they have a
chance to put into practice the ideas
of citizenship and responsibility that
scouting has taught them and they
love it . they are in hopes that
the 'adults teach us' can be turned
around. .. ."

Civic Council
(Continued from p. 1)
ant Chief of the Executive Planning
Staff, reported that the personnel di-
rector has said employees are to

required, and information is being
solicited from new employees on
their financial status.
There was further discussion on
unavailability of half-orders at Serv-
ice Centers, helmets for motorcycle
and scooter drivers, sale of ice at
Service Centers, parking at the Bal-
boa Retail Store, and just what is
wanted in a proposed leash law.

Setetule, Bella Leyenda Regional

Una de las bellas leyendas regio-
nales de PanamA, a la que dio su
forma el gran estudioso del folklore
panamefio Manuel Maria Alba se
llama Setetule, cuyo texto complete
aparece en el libro primero de la Ini-
ciaci6n Literaria del consagrado edu-
cador panamefio Profesor Miguel
Mejia Dutary.
Tiene su origen en aquellas eleva-
ciones de recios contornos donde los
choc6es, esa raza sofiadora como la
llama Alba, tejieron la leyenda.
Cuentan que en una de las tribus
choc6es establecidas cerca de la po-
blaci6n de Pinogana naci6 una nifia
de tez morena y mirada ardiente, cuya
asombrosa belleza se aumentaba cada
vez que miraba al sol.
"Era el deleite de cuantos la con-
templaron, y hasta las aves venian de
sitios distintos de los valles y monta-
fias para admirarla y celebrar con gra-
ciosos vuelos el regal de su hermo-
sura e ir gozosas luego a propalar por
todos los Ambitos su fama en la melo-
dia de sus cantos y gorjeos.

E. G. Dillman Catalogado

Como Experto Economista ,

El Dr. Everett G. Dillman, hijo
de la Sra. Maxine Dillman, de Bal-
boa, de la graduaci6n de 1950 de la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa, ha
preparado un studio econ6mico de
50 pAginas, que constitute un pro-
n6stico econ6mico, de 5 afos, para
la Rust Tractor, una firma de in-
dustrias pesadas de Albuquerque,
Nuevo Mbxico, dice un articulo que
aparece en reciente edici6n de The
Dealer, publicaci6n mensual de la
Compafiia Caterpillar Tractor.
El Dr. Dillman, economist y que
fuera director del Instituto de Inves-
tigaciones Comerciales de la Univer-
sidad de Nuevo Mexico, es el autor
de un plan de 5 aflos que ha dado
magnificos resultados a la Rust

La Companfia de Desarrollo Indus-
trial de Puerto Rico y la Phillips

A pesar de que no es expert en
industries pesadas, el Dr. Dillman
bas6 su pron6stico detallado en fuen-
tes publicadas, en entrevistas con
personal clave de las agencies pri-
vadas y gubernamentales, y en tres
factors: producci6n y consume,
valor ailadido, y empleo. Analiz6,
ademis, todos los mercados a los que
sirve Rust.
El president de la firma, John L.
Rust, dice acerca del pron6stico del
Dr. Dillman, "Principalmente, ha
incrementado nuestra capacidad cre-
diticia, pues los bancos estin mis
inclinados a prestar dinero si notan
que el negocio progress en una forma
ordenada y progresiva".
El Dr. Dillman ha desempefiado
tambidn la posici6n de director de
personal de la Administraci6n de la

La Iglesia de Santiago Ap6stol, de Nata de los Caballeros, la iglesia mis antigua todavia en uso en la tierra
firme americana. La iglesia data de 1522, cuando Nati fue oficialmente fundada por el Gobernador Pedrarias
Davila, fundador de la ciudad de PanamA. Segin una tradici6n, que tiene algo de historic y much de leyenda,
dice el historiador Eduardo Nieto Caballero que fue a finales del Siglo XVI, cuando el Rey resolvi6 enviar 100
caballeros notorious a la Provincia de Castilla del Oro. Estos hidalgos sentaron sus reales en Nata, de donde
result la denominaci6n de Nata de los Caballeros. De su antigua preponderancia, cuando era NatA de los Caba-
lleros, s6lo queda la iglesia, con su enhiesta torre, y el- Hospital de San Juan de Dios, casi en ruinas, donde se
asilaban los menesterosos de esa rica ciudad. Del Hospital de San Juan de Dios es que se derivan las fiestas de
San Juan de Dios de Nata, el 8 de marzo, que gozan de gran popularidad en las Provincias Centrales, por lo
que San Juan de Dios viene a ser copatrono de Nata, junto con su principal Santo Patrono, Santiago Ap6stol.
Esta iglesia es uno de los santuarios mis concurridos de la Repiblica, durante la Semana Santa, debido a la belleza
del monument que el Jueves Santo adornan distinguidas damas del lugar.

El Tubo cle Pantalla

Puede ser un Peligro
El tubo de pantalla de un televisor
viejo que se ha tirado en el patio o en
un solar abandonado, puede resultar
una bomba, una verdadera amenaza
para los niiios que juegan y que dis-
frutan tirando piedras a los objetos.
Los tubos de pantalla no contie-
nen aire en su interior y si se les hace
una perforacion, lo primero que su-
cede es que el tubo chupa aire vio-

Usted y la Seguridad

dEstd la seguridad echando races en su departamento o seccidn? De no
ser asi ccuidl es la causa? Puede used dar una respuesta o acaso des ousted
una de aquellas personas que creen que la idea de la SEGURIDAD es algo
para hacer bromas? Posiblemente usted nunca se ha torado el trabajo de
ensefiarle a un trabajador la manera correct de realizar una tarea. De
haberlo hecho no tomaria a broma la Seguridad ya que trabajo correct
significa trabajo seguro. Es verdad que a menudo toma un poco mds de
tiempo trabajar con seguridad, pero tambidn es cierto que una vez que se
conoce el trabajo, este se realize mdis rdpidamente y lo que es mds
important: con mds seguridad y eficiencia.
En la actualidad, tanto los trabajadores de las diferentes industries como
los empleados de oficina, han mejorado sus condiciones de trabajo como
asi tambien las herramientas que emplean en los diferentes oficios. Sin
embargo, cada uno debe vigilar y sigue siendo responsible por la condition
de sus herramientas, cdmo se usan y donde. Si se trata de usar, asi sea un
simple Idpiz, no se podrd escribir a menos que la punta se encuentre en
buenas condiciones; no serd possible serruchar una pieza de madera si la
sierra no se encuentra afilada; clavar un clavo sin el martillo correct; hacer
un agujero sin el taladro adecuado, o realizar cualquier otro trabajo correc-
tamente, no serd possible a menos que se observen las reglas de seguridad.
Esto deberd ser recordado en el trabajo, principalmente por los trabajado-
res nuevos que deben aprender sus tareas. Algunos querrdn progresar, para
powder hacerlo deberdn defender de sus superiores, los que les ensefardn
la forma de hacer su trabajo correctamente. Otros estardn satisfechos en
permanecer en el mismo trabajo si dste satisface sus habilidades y ambi-
ciones; estos serdn responsables porque su trabajo sea lo ndis seguro possible
debiendo en consecuencia buscar nuevas formas para que asi sea.
En today industrial modern se encuentran carteles, advertencias y reglas
de seguridad distribuidos en las diferentes instalaciones. Ellos no tienen
como finalidad decorar el ambient, ni provocar bromas, sino que se colocan
a fin de ayudar a salvar la vida, vista, salud, etc., de los trabajadores. Las
reglas deben ser observadas en todo moment. Ellas son colocadas para el
beneficio de todos.
El aprender a trabajar con seguridad es una accidn voluntaria si usted es
una persona que piensa correctamente. Usted debe entender que la ayuda
que se le ofrece es para su propio beneficio. El que en definitive saldrd
beneficiado si observa las reglas de seguridad y trabaja en consecuencia serd
USTED. Tdngalo present continuamente.
