The big day for Panama Canal construction workers and gaily dressed, entering Pedro Miguel Locks from Culebra
their families was August 15, 1914, when the SS "Ancon" Cut on its way to the Pacific. Crowds cheered the ship
made the first official transit. This photo shows the vessel, along the way.


54 Years Ago



Canal Triumph Realized


With Transit of SS Ancon


The victory of man over Nature
in Panama did not rate the front pages
that day. Another war, one of des-
truction, broken out barely two weeks
earlier on the other side of the world,
took the headlines away from the
epic achievement.
But to thousands of men on the
Isthmus-an army of workers from
many nations and of many trades-it
was the day of their lives.
The land already had been divided
after 10 years of toil. Now the world
was to be united by the passage of
a ship through the cyclopean ditch
carved out of the backbone of a con-
tinent to merge the oceans.
That ship was the SS Ancon, itself
part of the huge array of machines
that had made this day possible.
A bright new coat of paint was its
holiday attire, after years of drudgery
as a cement carrier during the con-
struction period. Now, on August 15,
1914, the Ancon, gaily dressed with
flags and streamers, took aboard the
highest dignitaries'on the Isthmus for
the historic voyage.
The Ancon's trip was to mark the
opening of the Panama Canal. To be
sure, a few vessels already had gone


through the newly completed canal,
but these had been test transits with-
out any official trappings.
The Ancon was to be the first ship
to make the crossing from deep water
to deep water. And so, when it left
its berth in Cristobal, it headed first
for the end of the Colon breakwater
before pointing its bow towards the
canal.


Mighty cheers and a blast of sirens
signaled the start of the milestone
trip at 7:08 a.m.-an accompaniment
that was to last throughout the 9
hours and 40 minutes it would take
the Ancon to dock at Balboa after
touching deep water in the Bay of
Panama.
The cheers came from the thou-

Suggestions Can Pay



You Big Dividends


Did a particular job you performed
today require too many motions?
Could you devise a better way to do
it? Did you see a waste of time and
money?
The answers to these questions
could mean money in your pocket-if
you put them down on paper and
submit them as formal suggestions.
Within the past year, the Panama
Canal Incentive Awards Committee,
consisting of the Comptroller and
bureau directors appointed by the
Governor to administer the program,
received 716 suggestions submitted
by Canal employees. Adopted were
155 for which some $4,650 was
awarded to the employees whose
ideas will save the Canal organization
an estimated $33,358 per year.
All employees are eligible to
propose suggestions. This includes
supervisors, student assistants, part-
time employees and W.A.E.'s. Sug-
gestions may be presented also jointly
by more than one person with the
employees sharing in the awards if
the ideas are adopted.
A suggestion may simplify work,
save material and time or abolish
needless duplication, thereby reduc-
ing operational costs, one of the
major objectives of the program. Cost
cutting, however, is not the only basis
for a sound suggestion. For example,
it may eliminate a potential safety
hazard, improve working conditions
or enhance the morale of the Panama
Canal team.
The procedure for submitting sug-
gestions is very simple. It requires
the filling out of a Suggestion Form
which is available at the Suggestion
Box in front of the Balboa Heights
Post Office, from the Incentive
Awards Program secretary (Room

Division offices.
On the form, the employee de-
scribes the circumstances prompting
his suggestion and gives his ideas,
how it can be used and what it will
accomplish.
Among recent top award winning
suggestions is one by Edward T.
Mulroy, an Atlantic side employee
of the Dredging Division who is
today $600 richer for suggesting re-
designed lighted dan buoys for the
Dredging Division. His suggestion
represents an estimated $10,400
annual saving for the Canal.
James S. DeFrees, Atlantic side
Locks Division, was awarded $345
for three suggestions improving
towing locomotives. His suggestions
will generate a saving of $6,000 to
the Canal organization annually.
Edward F. Cirulli's suggestion to
replace obsolete furnaces at the In-
dustrial Division merited him a $250
incentive award. Savings to the Canal
will amount to about $4,200 yearly.
An incentive award of $185 re-
cently went to Robert L. Ridge of
the Terminals Division. Ridge, who
has several suggestions to his credlit,
this time suggested methods by
which the number of simultaneous
operations during bunker "C" tanker
discharges can be increased. The im-
plementation of his idea will save
some $3,200 a year for the Canal.
A suggestion producing a $2,500
annual saving in the printing of the
Panama Canal Review resulted in a
$150 incentive award to John M.
Purvis, Jr., of the Printing Plant.
John C. Bing's suggestion that the
Printing Plant order larger sheets of
stock to get more cuts earned him
an incentive award of $150, also.
Savings on the suggestion are esti-
mated at some $2,500 per year for
the Canal.
Policeman Joseph T. Grills, Jr.,
suggested an improved method of
maintaining current the "Wanted Per-
sons" list of the Police Division. His
suggestion was sent to the Incentive
Awards Committee by his Division
Chief who thought it warranted re-
cognition by that committee. Grills
received a $60 incentive award.
These are examples of adopted
suggestions which merited monetary
awards of considerable sums. Many
times, however, it is the little things
that count. Ideas involving small
tangible or intangible benefits to the
organization also are most welcome.
The minimum cash award is $15 for
a suggestion worth at least $50 to
the Government. Panama Comp-
troller, Philip L. Steers, Jr., Chairman
of the Incentive Awards Committee,
says "There is no improvement saving
which is too large or too small to be
considered."

A few weeks ago I sent queries
to 50 leading personalities on what
their definition of love was, and the
replies just came in. If they don't
precisely fit the various classical
definitions, their extreme variance
makes them at least repeatable. Here
are a few, with names of the definers:
Robert Goulash-"Love? Why love
is . the love of my voice. I adore
my voice. My voice adores me. Every-
body worships my voice, not to men-
tion me. My fans even carry my
records around with them, like disc-
shaped swagger sticks. Therefore,
I believe love should be humble."
Andy Grits-"Love is like a bucket
of hog-livers. Or fresh turnip greens.
Or better, a moonlit night when
you're setting' on top of a haystack
with yore gal, thumpin' popcorns at
the moon while she keeps the horse-
flies out of the bowl with her cowboy
boot. Therefore, ah thank love should
be sophisticated."
Ann Landirge-"Oh, love is a lot
of things. But mostly, it's the little
things-like a circulation of over a
million. Thus, I think love should be
economicall)"
Sophie Tuckered-"Are you kiddin',
honey? The last time' a man men-
tioned love to me I slammed the
grand piano lid on his neck and
minor-chorded 64 bars of You Go
to My Head right through his. Love
should be blunt."
And then there's Zaggy Berry, of
local Windsor fame-"No problem
defining love, daddy. Love is like
. when you've got the audience
right in your own groove, all their
cool juices worked up to the pure,
double-clutching E-flat chevre-level,
and then Bat the Sax hits one of them
scoo-babbuh-de-doo-wap 64th-note
runs and completely snaps their
minds. Therefore, I believe love
should be like Ludwigged-out Bee-
thoven with just a touch of Bajan."
Now all of these definitions would
be fine for someone seeking restraint,
but I hoped for a more profound, all-
encompassing phrase bearing the


Corozal Hospital Keeps


In Step With Progress


Keeping step with progressive
mental health programs in the United
States, night therapy has been added
this past year to the services available
at Corozal Hospital.
A thoroughly modern concept in
psychiatric service, night therapy has
been made available for those who
feel they need help during the
evening or night hours although they
are able to function normally during
the day and fulfill most of their
individual responsibilities.
In this category are the problem-
drinkers, who can work during the
day, the adolescent who can perform
in school but who needs extra control
in the evening and various others.
The treatment program, added to
the therapeutic services as a pilot
study, was first used to test out the
response of those persons outside the
hospital whose cooperation would be
essential to the program.
According to Dr. Renata Schaeffer
de Arboleda, Director of Corozal
Hospital, the program has been well
received and has had the full

cooperation of work supervisors,
unit commanders, and schoolteachers.
These people accept back or con-
tinue on the job or in school, persons
who are getting help with night
hospital treatment.
No papers are necessary, since the
patient has total responsibility for
himself throughout the working day.
He also need not fulfill any steps for
voluntary or involuntary commitment
which are necessary for full inpatient
care.
The treatment begins with a com-
plete physical examination and rou-
tine laboratory work. It continues
with group psychotherapy in the
evening, family therapy, during
which members of the patient's
family are advised of the problems
facing the patient, and in the case
of alcoholics, introduction to Alco-
holic Anonymous.
Regular job or class attendance is
being stressed during the day and
social service visits and conferences
with work supervisors on the job are
provided whenever necessary.
In the case of adolescents, (there
are no patients under the age of 14)
the treatment is primarily the rein-
forcement of appropriate parental
authority and provision of a type of
productive living situation when
parental control is failing at home.
Many of the adolescents admitted are
involved in drug use. Alcohol has not
been a problem among the adolescent
population treated at Corozal.
In addition, family therapy for the
parents of the adolescent is provided
and close liaison is made with the
Department of Special Education in
providing the young people with
continued constructive, educational
programs.
Day treatment, including group
therapy has been in effect since 1965
and has been successful in offering
intensive treatment and a chance at
social rehabilitation, living at home
and returning home at night after
treatment, thus testing daily new
modes of adjustment in the familiar
environment and preventing isolation
from home and friends.
Day hospital care has also made it
possible during the past year to dis-
charge eight patients who were hos-
pitalized for decades, to live outside
and return for daily industrial therapy.
Five more were reemployed with the
Canal organization.
These new treatment modalities
serve to enhance the individual's need
for creativity and usefulness for
individual autonomy and acceptance
of responsibility to himself and the
Canal Zone community, despite and
throughout a personal crisis situation.

Since we're in the midst of so much
theatah these days, I must tell you a
story about the late John Barrymore,
about whom no one can lie; he did
everything in an epic way. One after-
noon at the exclusive Friars' Club in
New York, Barrymore was standing
at the bar next to a stranger.
After he had bought this chap a
couple of drinks, he turned to him
and said, "You know, there's one
thing in my life I've always wanted
to do and missed it."
"I can't imagine what that would
be, Mr. Barrymore," said the stranger.
"This," cackled Barrymore with
glee, and with his cane he reached
across the bar and whipped off about
50 delicate crystals in one Elizabethan
sword-slash to smithereens.
Whereupon the then president of
the Friars, George Burns, came over
and said, "John, I'm sorry, but that's
it. Here's your suspension," and
handed him same. Barrymore, equal
to any occasion, took the paper,
slowly tore it into many little pieces
and let them flutter to the floor.
"The broom," he called to the bar-
tender. Armed with this, he then
carefully swept the pieces-and him-
self-all the way out the door.
A year later, when his suspension
was up, Barrymore was again stand-
ing at the Friars bar-this time next
to Burgess Meredith. "I hear you got
thrown out for a year, John," Mere-
dith commented.
"Yes," Barrymore replied, "this is
my first day back."
"What did you get suspended
for?" Meredith asked.
"This," Barrymore said, and did a
crystalline encore with the cane. (He
never got back into the club after
that. But who would need to?)

This unprecedented victory of

the United States and the thousands

They had loyal allies in the titanic
struggle. In the first place the Pan-

it was a reality for all to see. There

provided the engineering genius and
the financial strength, and the West
Indians, the Europeans and the
Spanish Americans, who had pro-

shoulder to shoulder in the unpre-

Proudest of all were the North
Americans-and deservedly so.
They had taken up the challenge
after the gallant but failure-ridden
French attempt. Undaunted by the
colossal obstacles in their path-

EL CANAL DE PANAMA FUE ABIERTO


OFICIALMENTE AL COMERCIO


La victoria del hombre sobre la
Naturaleza en PanamA no mereci6
las primeras plans ese dia. Otra gue-
rra-una de destrucci6n-declarada
hacia escasas dos semanas allende el
mar, arrebat6 los titulares a la 6pica
proeza.
Pero para miles de hombres en el
Istmo-un ej6rcito de trabajadores de
muchas naciones y de muchos ofi-
cios-ese era el dia de sus vidas.
La tierra ya habia sido cortada des-
pues de 10 afos de sudor. Ahora el
mundo habria de ser unido por la
travesia de un barco a trav6s de la
cicl6pea zanja en el espinazo del
continent que habia reunido a los
oceanos.
Ese barco era el vapor Ancdn, que
habia formado parte del arsenal de
mquinas para la lucha.
Una nueva mano de pintura era su
atuendo de fiesta, despu6s de afios
de faena como transportador de ce-
mento durante el period de la cons-
trucci6n. Ahora, el 15 de agosto de
1914, el Ancdn, vistosamente ador-
nado con banderines y cintas, recibia
a bordo a los principles dignatarios
en el Lstmo para el hist6rico viaje.
La travesia del "Anc6n" habria
de marcar la apertura del Canal de
PanamA. Cierto era que algunas
naves ya habian cruzado la via
reci6n abierta, pero en trinsitos de
prueba sin nada de arandelas ofi-
ciales.
El Anc6n habria de ser el primer
buque en hacer la travesia desde mar
afuera hasta mar afuera. Y asi, cuando
sali6 de su atracadero en Crist6bal,
puso rumbo hacia el extreme del
rompeolas de Col6n antes de enfilar
la proa hacia el Canal.
Entre ensordecedores vitores y pi-
tazos de sirenas se inici6 el memo-
rable viaje a las 7:08 a.m.-un acom-
pafiamiento que duraria las 9 horas
y 40 minutes que tomaria el Ancdn
hasta atracar en Balboa despu6s de
tocar aguas hondas en la Bahia de
Panama.
Los vitores venian de los miles de
hombres que habian ayudado a
mover las montafias para abrir la ruta


entire los oc6anos buscada durante
largos siglos. Ahora, por fin, era una
realidad a la vista de todos. Estaban
los norteamericanos, que habian dado
el genio tecnico y el poderio finan-
ciero, y los antillanos, los europeos y
los hispano-americanos, que habian
dado la fuerza. Todos habian traba-

De todos, los mAs orgullosos eran
los norteamericanos-y con just
raz6n.
Habian recogido el guante despues
del intr6pido pero fallido intent

colosales obstAculos en su camino-
enfennedades, elements hostiles, ais-

altamente peligroso-habian perseve-
rado hasta acabar con la pestilencia,
cercenar las montafias, dominar los
rios . y unir los oc6anos a trav6s
de una ruta hecha por el hombre.

con el respaldo de una naci6n dis-
puesta a acometer la abrumadora
tarea. Reveses, controversial, costo-
nada se interpuso al empefio de los
Estados Unidos por construir un
canal en PanamA.
Esta singular victoria del esfuerzo
human habia sido lograda por los
Estados Unidos y los miles de sus
hijos que se enfrentaron a los rigores
de una bravia Naturaleza en PanamA.
Habian tenido leales aliados en la
titAnica empresa. En primer termino
los panamefios, cuyo aporte de las
mismas entraiias de su patria fue su-
blime sacrificio "pro mundi bene-
ficio".
Entre los grupos raciales que cons-
tituyeron el ejercito de trabajo del
Canal de PanamA, los antillanos po-
dian reclamar para si el aporte mAs
sostenido de mfsculo a los hercfleos
trabajos de progress que se habian
logrado en las espesas selvas de Pana-
mi durante el siglo anterior.
Primero habia sido el Ferrocarril
de PanamA. Siete mil antillanos
habian trabajado 41 afios para ayu-
dar a tender las dos cintas de acero


Todo Empleado del Canal


Puede Hacer Sugerencias


Al realizar hoy un trabajo en par-
ticular ENecesito hacer demasiados
movimientos? Puede usted idear una
mejor manera de hacerlo? ,Ha notado
usted perdidas de tiempo o de dinero?
Las contestaciones a estas pregun-
tas podrian significar dinero en su
bolsillo si las describe en un papel y
las present como sugerencias.
El ano pasado, el Comit6 de Pre-
mios de Estimulo del Canal de Pana-
mA; integrado por el Contralor y los
Directores nombrados por el Gober-
nador para que administren el pro-
grama, recibi6 716 sugerencias de
empleados del Canal. Se adoptaron
155 y se otorg6 un total de $4.650 a
los empleados cuyas ideas ahorrarin
a la empresa del Canal alrededor de
$33.358 anuales.
Todos los empleados pueden hacer
sugerencias. Esto include a los jefes,
ayudantes estudiantiles, empleados de
tiempo parcial y empleados provisio-
nales. Tambi6n se pueden hacer su-
gerencias en conjunto o sea que dos
o mas empleados pueden hacer una
sugerencia en conjunto y si esta es
adoptada comparten el premio.
Una sugerencia puede simplificar
el trabajo, ahorrar material y tiempo
o abolir duplicaciones innecesarias,


reducicndo asi costs de operaciones,
uno de los principles objetivos del
program. El corte de gastos, sin em-
bargo, no es solamente la base para
hacer una buena sugerencia. Por
ejemplo, puede eliminar un riesgo
de seguridad potential, mejorar las
condiciones de trabajo o elevar la
moral del personal del Canal de
PanamA.
El procedimiento para hacer una
sugerencia es muy simple. Hay que
llenar un Formulario de Sugerencia
que se puede conseguir en la Caja
de Sugerencias que estA en frente de
la Oficina de Correos de Balboa
Heights, con la secretariat del Pro-
grama de Premios por Estimulo
(cuarto 104, Edificio de Administra-
ci6n) y en las oficinas de las Divi-
siones.
En el formulario, el empleado des-
cribe las circunstancias que inspiran
su sugerencia y da sus ideas, c6mo se
podrAn usar y qu6 se lograrA.
Una de las ultimas sugerencias que
ganaron los mayores premios fue la
presentada por Edward T. Mulroy,
empleado de la Divisi6n de Dragas
en el Atlantico, quien recibi6 $000
par sugerir el cambio del disefo de

que unieron las costas del AtlAn-
tico y el Pacifico del Istmo. Menos
de una generaci6n despu6s, se pro-
dujo el esfuerzo frances para exca-
var el canal. En el apogeo de ese
spectacular pero desafortunado
intent, casi 18.000 antillanos-la
mayoria procedentes de Jamaica-
componian el grueso de la fuerza
de trabajo.
Pero fue durante el gigantesco es-
fuerzo bajo los Estados Unidos
que emigr6 al Istmo el mayor nmimero


de antillanos. Treinta y un mil vinie-
ron durante el period de construc-
ci6n de 1904 a 1914 de todas las
islas-Fortuna, Barbados, Guadalupe,
Martinica, Jamaica, Trinidad, Cura-
zao, San Kitts, Santa Lucia, San Vi-
cente, Granada y Guayana BritAnica.
Estuvieron en la vanguardia en la
lucha contra el mosquito transmisor
de enfermedades que tenia que ser
vencido antes de asegurarse el exito
de la lucha para construir el canal.
Y cuando se acometi6 la excavaci6n

EUNDIAL
en serio, los antillanos estuvieron de
nuevo en la vanguardia, proporcio-
nando la fuerza para hacer andar las
mAquinas.
Cientos de ellos murieron en el
cumplimiento del deber. Junto con
los europeos, la mayoria de Espafia,
Italia y Francia; y los hispano-ameri-
canos, principalmente de Costa Rica,
Colombia y, desde luego, PanamA,
fueron lo que un escritor llam6 "los

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Dan Servicio de Avanzada


En el Hospital de Corozal


De acuerdo con los programs mis
avanzados de salubridad en los Esta-
dos Unidos, la terapia nocturna ha
sido agregada desde el afio pasado a
los servicios que se prestan en el Hos-
pital de Corozal.
Concepto sumamente modern en
el servicio de psiquiatria, la terapia
nocturna se ofrece a quiencs necesi-
ten ayuda durante la noche, a pesar
de que puedan actuar normalmente
durante el dia y desempeiiar la ma-
yoria de sus responsabilidades indi-
viduales.
En esta categoria se encuentran los
bebedores-problema, que pueden tra-
bajar durante el dia; los adolescents,
que pueden desempelarse en la es-
cuela, pero necesitan control extra
durante la noche, y various otros.
El program de tratamiento, aia-
dido a los servicios terapduticos como
studio piloto, fue primero para pro-
bar la reacci6n de las personas de
fuera del hospital cuya cooperaci6n
seria esencial para el program.
De acuerdo con la Dra. Renata
Schaeffer de Arboleda, Directora del
Hospital de Corozal, el program ha
sido bien recibido y ha contado con
la complete cooperaci6n de los super-
visores de trabajo, comandantes de
unidades militares y maestros de es-
cuela que han vuelto a aceptar o per-
mitido que continuen en el trabajo o
en la escuela las personas que reciben
ayuda con el tratamiento nocturno en
el hospital.
No hay necesidad de Ilenar pape-
les, ya que el paciente es totalmente
responsible de si mismo durante el
dia de trabajo. Tampoco necesita dar
paso alguno para su internaci6n vo-
luntaria o involuntaria, necesaria para
los que son tratados como pacientes
completes.
El tratamiento comienza con un
examen fisico complete y trabajo ru-
tinario de laboratorio. Continda con
psicoterapia de grupo por la noche y
terapia familiar, durante la cual los
miembros de la familiar del paciente
son aconsejados sobre los problems
a que se enfrenta el paciente, y en el
caso de los alcoh6licos, la introduc-
ci6n a la sociedad Alcoh6licos An6-
nimos.
Se hace hincapi6 en la asistencia al
trabajo o a classes durante el dia, y
el servicio social visit y se entrevista
con los supervisors de trabajo siem-
pre que ello es necesario.
En el caso de los adolescents, (no
hay pacientes de menos de 14 afios),
el tratamiento es principalmente el
refuerzo de una autoridad paternal
apropiada y el suministro de una si-
tuaci6n productive de vida, cuando
el control paternal fall en el hogar.
Muchos de los adolescents admiti-
dos estAn relacionados con el uso de
drogas. El alcohol no ha sido proble-
ma entire los adolescents tratados en
Corozal.


Comedia de Neil Simon

Ofrecerin en Crist6bal

"Star Spangled Girl", comedia en
tres actos de Neil Simon, ha sido
escogida por el Pequefio Teatro de
Crist6bal como su pr6xima presenta-
ci6n.
"Star Spangled Girl" sera estrenada
el 22 de agosto en el Pequefio Tea-
tro de Crist6bal, situado en France
Field y seguira presentandose cuatro
notches seguidas, hasta el 25 de agos-
to. Edward Campbell, que dirigi6
"Qui6n le Teme a Virginia Woolf"
serA el director.
El elenco estA compuesto s6lo de
tries personas: Tom Sherman, que in-
terpret6 al joven professor en "Quien
le Teme a Virginia Woolf"; Roger
Erb, reci6n Ilegado a la Zona del
Canal y quien posee gran experiencia
teatral, y Gloria LaLaidier.

El program de desarrollo de las
Naciones Unidas ha aceptado sumi-
nistrar al Peri $1.100.000 para que
Ileve a caho un program de 4 aios
de f(nmento de la ganaderia en las
regions de la sierra y de la sel-
va, cuyo cost total se calcula en
$3.300.000.


Ademis, se proporciona terapia fa-
miliar para los padres del adolescent
y existe un estrecho contact con el
Departamento de Educaci6n Espe-
cial para proporcionar a los j6venes
programs continues, constructivos y
educativos.
El tratamiento diurno, incluso la
terapia de grupo, ha estado en vigor
desde 1965 y ha tenido 6xito en pro-
porcionar tratamiento intensive y una
oportunidad de rehabilitaci6n social,
pues a los pacientes se les permit
vivir en su casa y regresar a ella por
la noche, despu6s del tratamiento,
probando asi, diariamente, las nuevas
tendencies del ajuste en el ambiente
familiar y evitando el aislamiento del
hogar y las amistades.
La atenci6n diaria en el hospital ha
hecho possible que durante el aio pa-
sado se diera de alta a ocho pacientes
que habian estado hospitalizados du-
rante d6cadas, los cuales han podido
vivir fuera y regresar diariamente
para recibir terapia industrial. Cinco
mAs fueron vueltos a emplear con la
empresa del Canal.
Esta modalidad nueva de trata-
miento sirve para realzar la necesi-
dad del individuo de poder crear y
ser Atil, para la autonomia del indi-
viduo y su aceptaci6n de las respon-
sabilidades para consigo mismo y
para con la comunidad, a pesar de
su situaci6n de crisis personal.

cuestas o en curvas que le obstruyan la visibilidad y a mantener una distancia
convenient del vehiculo que va delante.
* La cortesia y el sentido comin son las mejores cualidades de un buen con-
ductor. La descortesia, falta de cuidado y testarudez resultan en accidents. De

Parece que vamos a estar aqui para

malas): los Carnavales este afio no

Y, cambiando el disco, pasamos a
felicitar muy sinceramente al dind-
mico y talentoso Bruce Quinn por su
nueva presentaci6n que se escenific6
con gran 6xito en el Auditorium de
la Escuela Secundaria de Balboa. Se
trata de la aclamada "WEST SIDE
STORY", obra con la cual Quinn
reafirma ante el pdblico sus indiscu-
tibles dotes de gran realizador. Sus
cuatro producciones anteriores, que
han sido verdaderos alardes de dis-
ciplina y madurez artistic, han pro-
ducido el envidiable record de
$50.000.

Un corresponsal (por Ilamarlo de
alguna manera), nos describe hacienda
un profuso anAlisis de nuestra colum-
na anterior. Por cierto que no us6
calificativos muy alentadores, para
terminar dici6ndonos que "tal vez
con la experiencia mejoraremos un
poco". (Como si la experiencia fuera


una secreci6n de la vejez, en vez de
un fen6mono del espiritu.)


Cansados como estamos de ver
diariamente en la prensa consejos
sobre esta y aquella medicine para
curar que si la reuma, o la bronquitis,
o las picadas de mosquito, nos alent6
much el ver una propaganda que
asegura que el amor es la 6nica dul-
zura que no conduce a la diabetes.
. . Y a prop6sito de enfermedades:
malo es querer beber agua y no tener
gota; pero peor es tender gota y no
poder levantarse a beber agua.
dQu6 tal se van aburriendo hoy,
amigos? Si se sienten incapaces de
acabar de leer todos estos disparate
a rejo limpio, 6ste es el moment de
parar a tomarse un poco de agua,
pues todavia vamos a medio camino.

Me alegro. Yo, a la verdad, no me
desanimo muy rApidamente. Y pienso
que mi consuelo son los muertos, que
por mal que lo hayan hecho, siempre

nando los detalles para un nuevo Fes-
tival de Jazz. Los 6xitos que ha alcan-

Otro corresponsal nos manda como
colaboraci6n dos definiciones, con las
cuales no estamos del todo de acuer-
do (sobre todo con la ultima.) Pero
para que ustedes vean qu6 clase de
desatinos somos capaces de publicar,
ahi van: PATRIMONIO: Conjunto
de bienes de un hombre. MATRI-
MONIO: Conjunto de males. Y ahora
terminamos, con un poco de filosofia
barata. El tema escogido es el de la
muerte, para ver si los animamos un
poco. Dicen que commented se
piensa en la muerte como en una
exposici6n de escultura: suponiendo
que va a ir a ella todo el mundo, a
excepci6n de uno mismo .... Y citan-
do al mismo fil6sofo anterior-que
parece tener tambi6n algo de estra-
tega-dice que nadie esta en mayor
peligro de muerte que el que ha
hecho testamento a favor de los que
le rodean. ... Y afiade esta frase
lapidaria: los muertos son gente muy
fria y estirada.... No se vayan ami-
gos, que esto se pone peor. Recuer-
den que hay dos sistemas de lograr
la felicidad: uno, hacerse el idiota;
otro, serlo. (Por favor, aquellas per-
sonas de brillante intelecto que hayan
podido adivinar cuAl de los dos sis-
temas utilizamos nosotros, no se lo
vayan a decir a nadie).

cibit un premio de $345 por tres su-
gerencias que mejoran las locomoto-

dedor de $4.200 anuales.
Un premio de estimulo de $185 le

Pero los peligros y las tragedies
de 10 afios fueron olvidados en ese
dia de triunfo en 1914, cuando el
Ancdn naveg6 desde el AtlAntico
hasta el Pacifico a trav6s de la honda
zanja cortada de lo que apenas un
decenio antes habia sido tupida selva
y masiva roca.
Por las Esclusas de Catbn, a traves
del Lago Gatien, obra del hombre,
para entrar en el sobrecogedor Corte
Gaillard, por las Esclusas de Pedro
Miguel, a travis del Lago Miraflores,
por las Esclusas de Miraflores y por
el cauce canalero hasta pasar las tres
islas centinelas a la entrada por el
Pacifico-el Anc6n siguid su rumbo,
contestando cada saludo a lo largo
de toda la ruta.
Era poco despubs de las 5 de la
tarde cuando el Ancdn atrac6 en
Balboa.
"El trabajo de afios, el suefio de
inuchos, y el scenario del fracaso de
various intentos para cortar el espi-
nazo del Hemisferio Occidental estA
ya terminado, seguin indican todas las
apariencias", decia el Star & Herald
de Panama el 16 de agosto de 1914,
en su relato sobre la travesia del
Ancdn.


La noticia aparecia en pagina 4,
bajo un titular de tres columns: "EL
CANAL DE PANAMA ABIERTO
OFICIALMENTE AL COMERCIO
MUNDIAL-El vapor Anc6n hace
el viaje de oceano a ocbano con casi
30 pasajeros, inclusive diplomAticos
de muchas naciones".
Toda la primera plana del Star
& Herald-a la saz6n el diario mis
important en la ciudad de Panami-
estaba dedicada'a los despachos sobre
la guerra. "DETENIDO EL AVAN-
CE ALEMAN EN LIEJA", procla-
maba el titulo principal. En los Es-
tados Unidos y otros paises, los des-
pachos sobre la I Guerra Mundial
desplazaron la noticia de que el homn
bre, por fin, habia conquistador a la
Naturaleza para lograr Ia ruta a las
Indias.
A medio mundo de distancia, habia
hombres matAndose los unos a los
otros ese dia. En Panami, otros hom-
bres se regocijaban por su hazafia de
progress. Lo express asi el Star
& Herald: "Las empinadas riberas
(del Corte Gaillard) atraian la vista
con extrafia fascinaci6n y cuando uno
volvia los ojos hacia arriba, hasta las
cimas de los cerros a cada lado, la
insignificancia del hombre no parecia
tan marcada despues de todo".
