Towboat Training

The first employee in the history
of the Canal organization to attain
the age of 80 years while still on the
rolls as a full-time employee was
honored at a special ceremony in the
District Court in Ancon.
HIe is Louis Parfait, legal librarian
in the District Court. Gov. W. P.
Leber, Judge Cuthrie F. Crowe, and
several members of the Canal Zone
Bar Association were on hand to help
him celebrate his 80th birthday.
Highlighting the gifts Parfait re-
ceived from the well-wishers present
at the ceremony was the Panama
Canal Distinguished Service Award
in official recognition of distinguished
and unique service to the Canal Zone
Government and the Courts of the
Canal Zone, and for continuing dedi-
cation to duty upon reaching 80 years
of age. The award was accompanied
by a check for 8300 and a Key to
the Locks Certificate inscribed "Octo-

1888 and came to the Isthmus in
October 1905. He began working for
the Canal March 1907 and held

Nothing Dry

About This


Graduation ceremonies often tend
to be a bit dry. But not the one at
the Panama Canal's Diving School at
Gatun. Out there, at one point, the
graduates went underwater.
During the graduation ceremony,
at which 13 Panama Canal divers and
diver tenders received their certifi-
cates from Capt. Donald A. Dertien,
USN, Marine Bureau Director, a
demonstration was given of under-
water metal burning using an electric
arc and gas cutting torch.
The graduates also demonstrated
underwater power velocity, which
took in surface supplied shallow
water gear and deep sea diving gear.
On display, too, were the tools and
equipment the divers use.
After the demonstrations, the divers
changed to street clothes and the cer-
tificate awarding part of the cere-
mony got underway, with the instruc-
tor, Master Diver Burton L. Powell
Acting Chief R. J. Danielsen of
the Locks Division and Acting Chief
C. W. Field of the Industrial Divi-
sion added their congratulations to
those of Captain Dertien to the suc-
cessful graduates.
In the Industrial Division, five
divers and two diver tenders com-
pleted the 6 weeks' course. In the
Locks Division, two divers and four
diver tenders completed the training

Can Be Harmful

Too many coffeebreaks, besides
bringing a frown from the boss, may
be the cause of an unexplained ill-
ness. The Journal of the American
Medical Association reported a case
of a patient who had been in the
habit of drinking 15 to 18 cups of
coffee a day. She complained of
having a "cold" for 6 months and
almost daily low-grade fever, with
occasional chilliness, insomnia, and
several other symptoms. Diagnosis
suggested caffeinism.
When coffee intake was cut down
to one cup a day, the patient's tem-
perature dropped to normal. Other
symptoms disappeared, too, when
coffee intake was restricted. The
physician pointed out that caffeinism
is reported to be current among in-
tellectual workers, actresses, wait-
resses, night workers, and long-
distance automobile drivers.

Are you planning your retirement?
If so, you probably will be faced

A show featuring the work of artists Gail Ball, left, Marie Stahl, center, and
Leslie High, right, is open to the public, at the Little Gallery in the Tivoli
Guest House, through September 7. The show is sponsored by the National
League of American Pen Women, of which the three artists are members.

Last week I was sprawled out atop
my luggage in the main lounge of
the Miami international Airport. It
was the end of my vacation and
things were really gone-my leave
time was gone, my cash was gone
(a rousing Hurrah for credit cards),
my sense of humor-what little there
is-was gone. Even the ticket clerk
was gone. My chances of getting
home that day seemed about as
remote as a Ho Chi Minh nomination
for the Nobel Peace Prize.
(Meanwhile, at the branch post
office in Balboa Heights, Neville
Frain was sorting mail that had
arrived on an early flight. Little did
he know that by the time he finished
with the last sackfull of mail, Ken
Goldsberry and Bob Emerick had
become fathers, Mike Corc6 a proud
grandfather, and the resultant assault
on the clubhouse cigar and candy
supply had skyrocketed over-the-
counter sales in Whitman Sampler
and El Ropo stock.)
In Miami, the ticket clerk finally
appeared and processed my ticket.
As I walked to the loading ramp-
calmer now-a new jolt assaulted my
already frazzled nerves: posters.
Posters have taken on a new flip style
in the States. In fact, these almost
neutralized my Brylcreem shampoo.
The first one read: "Going to Europe?
Why not take the bus and leave the
driving to us." And that one really
wasn't too bad after a fleeting glance
at the second: "Flying South? Fly
with confidence. All our pilots are
familiar with the Havana Airport."
Alas, pity the Jet Set aficionado. At
least I made it back.

this week. I saw a sick doctor.
Dr. F1ix Hurtado was laid up so
1 peeked in on him the other day
only to find him in his bed surrounded
by medical textbooks covering every-
thing from the treatment of a blister
to the preparation of an anti-coagu-
lant concentrate derived from Achil-
lea millefolium. To be on the safe
side, he had supplemented this vast
array of scientific and medicinal lore
with a list of the On-Call physicians
at Gorgas, the jungle-drum call signs
of two prominent San Bias witch
doctors, and a grotesquely charming
Tanamirnowakatimia doll given to
him by a Guaymi Indian medicine
man to be used for chasing away evil
Also ailing recently was Ken
Millard's wife Arlene, whom we hope
to see up and around again shortly,
and Billy Lloyd who suffered a
pinched nerve.

Now that school is about to start,
we'd like to wish all college-bound
students a string of straight-A's, and
let them know that we'll miss them,
especially Mary Arenz, Jane Hesters,
and Sandy Shirley who would be a
welcome addition to any campus.
Speaking of campuses (camp-i?
campus-i?), our own Canal Zone Col-
lege has Loring White back after a
year's leave of absence in Colorado
where he was working towards his
Elsewhere in our hallowed halls
of higher education the key word
seems to be work, what with all the
preparation that goes into ensuring
that Junior's first day back in school
doesn't addle his psyche. Clyde Will-
man and John Knick at BHS and John
Fawcett, and Seymour Barkowitz at
Curundu Junior High are just a few
of our educators who are so busy
these days they sometimes don't have
time to eat. If you don't believe that,
ask Dave Baglien, counselor at the
College, who has to advise not only
the new students in regards to their
courses for the semester but also the
old students, part-time students, full-
time students, sponsored students,
non-sponsored students, professional
students, and other students . .
Some of my observations while in
the States this year were somewhat
reminiscent of that old standard,
"only in America." For instance, on
the outskirts of Macon, Ga., on Inter-
state Highway 75 an enterprising
group of barbers rented a huge bill-
board to display a large poster as
advertising. Their ad: a picture of a
modern young man with a modern
haircut-shoulder length-with the
caption, "Keep America Beautiful-
Get a Haircut." And driving through
Miami there are scads of signs in
shop windows which read: "Aqui Se
Habla English."
Of course, here on the Isthmus
scattered examples of this gringo
wildness crop up now and then, but
with Latin overtones. At the Balboa
Theater last week during the pre-
miere of "Camelot," for example, the
medieval English court was having
a picnic in the forest on-screen w+en
we overheard a lady behind us ask
her husband what they were eating.
His answer was that he thought they
were eating some type of bread roll.
After a few seconds of silence, her
reply came back: "Hmmphh . They
look like empanadas to me."

showed that he was interested in
what he was doing and his work
since that time has fully proven this
"His familiarity with the law
through his long connection with the
Clerk's Office makes him doubly
valuable, for he not only knows
where to find the books but also is
familiar with the subject of the books.
In addition to his work as librarian,
Parfait, because of his linguistic
abilities, is a decided asset. He speaks
correct French, excellent Spanish,
and good English."
In a letter dated November 8,
1960, recommending that Parfait be
continued in employment, Judge
Guthrie Crowe said: "Mr. Parfait is
peculiarly endowed with a talent for
legal research and is, in fact, the only
person that I have ever found that
has this ability that was not a grad-
uate lawyer. He is a man of unusually
high intelligence and native talent
and for this reason has proved him-
self invaluable to the lawyers of the
General Counsel, the Canal Zone Bar
and the Court."
Parfait and his wife Paulette, also
originally from Martinique, live in
San Francisco (Panama). They have
.five children and nine grandchildren.

Leroy C. Mask, (a la izquierda), pasabarcus del Canal de PanamA en el sector
Atlantico de la Zana del Canal, recipe de manos del Capitan del Puerto de
Crist6bal, CapitAn E. B. Reinier, un certificado de encomio por haber acumu-
lado 30 aieos de servicios con la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n sin haber sufrido
lesi6n causante de incapacidad durante todo ese tiempo.

Dicen que la distancia es el olvido
(o por lo menos eso es lo que dice
la canci6n); de modo que nosotros
suponemos que una semana ha sido
mas que suficiente para que ustedes
se recuperen de las convulsions de
dicha que les produjo cl magnifico
trozo podtico con que los agasa;amos
la vez pasada. Y para que vean que
no somos egoistas, hoy les traemos
otra pigina de poesia super-moderna
(por Ilamarla de algin modo). Asi es
que apri6tense los cinturones, que
ahi les va:
"rQuien es la persona que me
conforta en mis moments
de desdicha,
qui6n la que desliza sus dedos
suavemente por mis cabellos,
cocina mi comida y arregla
mi cama;
qui6n me pcne las gotas en la nariz
(o en los ojos)
cuando tengo catarro?
;Quiin me restriega la espalda
cuando me bafio,
o me despierta todas las mananas
a la hora del trabajo?
6Quicn me recuerda que hay que
pagarle al casero
y figure en todos mis suefios?
iSoy yo!
Nos dice el autor de tan conmo-
vedora pieza de arte que se obtiene
mejor resultado si se lee esta poesia
aguantando la respiraci6n. Nosotros
no tenemos idea de cuAl sern el resul-
tado que pueda lograrse, como no
sea el de contender un poco el asco.
Para gustos, hay colors.

Y ahora, los que gusten del relajo
que se bajen de esa nube, pues sc
acab6 el juego y vamos director a un
tema de la realidad. Comencemos con
algo cientifico. Un equipo de hom-
bres de studio acaba de realizar un
profundo anilisis del Reporte Kinsey,
para llegar a la conclusion de que
'ste s61o prueba una cosa: que a las
mujeres les encanta hablar . Otros
come-libros, esta vez en el campo de
la geometria, han decidido que la
line curva debe definirse mejor como
"la distancia mas bella entire dos
puntos". Y ya que estamos en los
alrededores del tema, isaben ustedes
como llamar al que no cree en el
control de la natalidad? PAPA.

Le preguntabamos en dias pasados
a Leonardo SuArez, conocido por
todos como "Chiquitin", que c6mo
hacia para mantenerse en forma.
Y nos decia que en su caso el secret
ha estado en mantenerse active. Se
lo tuvimos que aceptar cuando cons-
ttatmos que cuenta con nada menos
que 23 ailos de servicio con la Divi-
si6n de Transporte a Motor. De ver-
dad que la actividad mantiene joven,
pues Leonardo ticne la apariencia de
un hombre de apenas unos 30 afios.
"Chiquitin" es apreciado por todos
por su gran don de gentes, por la dili-
gencia y seriedad con que realize su
trabajo y porque siempre tiene una
sonrisa y una palabra agradable para
todo el mundo.

El otro dia Mario Castrell6n habia
ido con varies compaicros de la Di-
visi6n de Ingenieria a almorzar a la
Cafeteria de Curundi. Y como Mario
vigila la figure, sc subid a la pesa para
ver si habia aumentado algrl kilo con
cl suculento meni. Sac6 del lolsillo
dos monedas: una de diez cc(ntavos
y otra de un ccntavo. I'ero, por cstarl]o
vacilando sus comipailcros, se con-
fundit de monedia y inctli cn la, pesia
la de 10 centavOs i(n 've d1 la de
uno. Como la vaciliderai sigiuii, Mario
imedio azorado sc baj6 de la pcsa,

para darse cuenta luego de que en
la confusion no se habia fijado cuinto
marcaba. Resultado: la transacci6n le
cost 10 centavos en vez de uno, y
se qued6 el hombre sin saber cuainto
pesa. Moraleja: imis concentraci6n,
Mario, mis concentraci6n.

Alvaro Calvo, Edwin Durling y
Antonio Raven fonnan parte del re-
putadisimo cuerpo de ingenieros que
prestan servicio en el Canal de Pana-
ma,, en cuya compleca operaci6n tie-
nen aplicaci6n pricticamente todas
las ramas de la ingenieria modern.
Otro distinguido professional de la
ingenieria es Ricardo Pasco, a cuyo
cargo esta el program de control de
la vegetaci6n flotante en el cauce del
Canal. Y, por supuesto, estA Rubelio
D. Quintero, quien jefatura la impor-
tantisima Secci6n Elctrica del Ramo
Electromecanico. A nadie se escapa
la vital importancia que tiene la ge-
neraci6n de energia electric necesa-
ria para la via interoceanica.

Eficiencia y gran sentid.o de la res-
ponsabilidad son cualidades que des-
pliega Mary Diaz, a cuyo cargo estk
la coordinaci6n del trimite de las de-
ducciones por planilla de la n6mina
de empleados del Canal. Las impor-
tantes funciones que con tanto acier-
to ejecuta Mary son un decisive esla-
b6n en la gigantesca operaci6n que
constitute el procesamiento de la
n6mina de salaries. El volume de la
fuerza laboral de las dos entidades,
que al finalizar el pasado mes de
junio constaba de 15.893 empleados,
puede darles a ustedes una idea de
la delicada funci6n que entrafia el
manejo de sus planillas de salaries.
Cada dos semanas cl cielo se rcpite,
culminando en la confecci6n y dis-
tribuci6n de cheques por salaries a
cada uno de los empleados. La utili-
zaci6n de una computadora NCR en
la realizaci6n de esta tarea permit
niveles muy elevados de rapidez y
eficiencia, y hace possible la produc-
ci6n de una gama de reports de gran
valor e interns para los distintos nive-
les administrativos de la empresa. En
nuestra opinion, la Seccion de Pla-
nillas es una buena prueba de que
una operaci6n de gran envergadura
puede manejarse con g xito si, como
en este caso, se utilizan las tecnicas
apropiadas y se cuenta con un per-
sonal capacitado y responsible.

Antes que se nos olvide, amigos,
iquC avalanche de cartas! (Miles y

Mudan Divisi6n

De Medicine

Preventive Aqui

La Division de Medicina Preven-
tiva ha mudado sus oficinas de la
Corte de Distrito de la Zona del Canal
en Anc6n, al segundo piso del Centro
Comunal de Salubridad en Balboa.
La mudanza, que incluy6 a 12
empleados de la division, se hizo para
proporcionar un sitio mis c6ntrico
para el public.

El primer empleado en toda la his-
toria de la empresa del Canal que
llega a la edad de 80 afios, estando
todavia en las n6minas, como emplea-
do de tiempo complete, fue honrado
en una ceremonia especial en la Corte
del Distrito en Anc6n.
Se trata de Louis Parfait, biblio-
tecario legal de la Corte del Distrito.
El Gobernador W. P. Leber, el Juez
Guthrie F. Crowe y various miembros
del Colegio de Abogados de la Zona
del Canal lo acompaiiaron a celebrar
su cumpleafios ndmero 80.
El principal de los regalos que re-
cibi6 Parfait de part de los que asis-
tieron a la ceremonia, fue el "Certifi-
cado por Servicios Distinguidos" del
Canal de Panami, como reconoci-
miento official de un servicio unico y
distinguido al servicio del Gobierno
y de las Cortes de la Zona del Canal,
y por su pennanente consagraci6n al
deber hasta llegar a cumplir 80 anos.
El certificado le fue acompafiado por
un cheque de $300 y el Certificado
de las Llaves de las Esclusas, con la
inscripci6n "Bibliotecario Octogena-
rio y Extraordinario". El Gobernador
Leber hizo la entrega.
Parfait naci6 en Martinica en 1888
y vino al Istmo en octubre de 1905.
Comenz6 a trabajar con el Canal en
marzo de 1907 y ocup6 various pues-
tos de oficina durante la construcci6n
del Canal. En abril de 1919 comenz6
a trabajar en la oficina del Escribano
en la Corte de Ancon. Luego de tra-
bajar en esa oficina durante unos 12
afios, renunci6 y fue a trabajar en
PanamA. Regres6 a ]a empresa del
Canal en noviembre de 1937 y fue
a trabajar como empleado de la Bi-
blioteca Legal en Anc6n.
El 31 de octubre de 1959, Parfait
lleg6 a los 70 afios y fue jubilado, de
acuerdo con la Ley de Jubilaciones
del Servicio Civil. Sin embargo,' fue
vuelto a emplear al dia siguiente, para
seguir siendo empleado todos los afios.
Al cumplir 80 ailos, ha acumulado 44
afios y 24 dias de servicios al Canal.
El talent poco usual de Parfait
como bibliotecario legal fue recono-
cido por various jueces de la Corte del
Distrito, desde que comenz6 a prestar
servicios en la Biblioteca Legal de la
Corte del Distrito en Anc6n, hace casi
30 aiios.
En una carta fechada el 19 de
abril de 1945, recomendando un

aumento de salario para Parfait, el
Juez Bunk Gardner comentaba: "No
me tom6 much tiempo descubrir que
Parfait poseia inteligencia; sabia mu-
cho acerca de la Corte, su procedi-
miento y el trabajo de rutina de la
oficina del Escribano, y adn mAs, que
en 1l se podia confiar. Dcmostr6 in-
teresarse en sus labores y su trabajo,
desde entonces, ha mostrado su in-
"Su conocimiento de la ley, adqui-
rido durante su larga penmanencia en
la oficina del Escribano, lo hace
doblemente valioso, ya que no s6lo
sabe done encontrar los libros, sino
que esta familiarizado con el conte-
nido de los mismos. Ademas de su
trabajo como bibliotecario, Parfait
es valioso debido a su habilidad
lingiistica. Iabia correctamente el
francs, un excelente espaiol y buen
En una carta fechada el 8 de no-
viembre de 1960, en la que reco-
mendaba que se volviera a emplear a
Parfait, el Juez Guthrie F. Crowe
dice: "El Sr. Parfait estA dotado de
un talent peculiar para la investi-
gaci6n legal y es, en realidad, la
unica persona no graduada de abo-
gado que yo he conocido con esta
habilidad. Es hombre de inteligencia
extraordinaria y talent nato, raz6n
por la cual ha demostrado ser de
valor incalculable para los abogados
de la Oficina de Asesoria Juridica,
para el Colegio de Abogados y para
la Corte".
