The Honorable Charles W. Adair,
Jr., U.S. Ambassador to Panama, will
be the principal speaker for the

Koch, USN, Commander USNAVSO,
the Reverend Stephen J. Strouse,

Greenspan, the Reverend Louis A.
Sealey, and the Very Reverend
Mainert J. Peterson.
Ambassador Adair, who has been

born in Xenia, Ohio. He received
his bachelor of arts degree from the
University of Wisconsin and did
graduate study at the American In-
stitute of Banking, George Wash-
ington University and Princeton
University.
Ambassador Adair, who has been
in the U.S. Foreign Service since
1940, has also served in Mexico,

MARU To Conduct


Influenza Studies


Answers to important questions
about the new strain of influenza
that appeared in the Canal Zone re-
cently will be sought through stu-
dies over the next few weeks in the
communities of Paraiso and Pedro
Miguel. The studies will be con-
ducted by the Middle America Re-
search Unit which carried out similar
research in Paraiso in 1963 on res-
piratory infections in the tropics.
The Canal Zone is the first and to
date the only place in the Western
Hemisphere that has experienced an
epidemic of influenza caused by the
A2 Hong Kong Influenza virus. The
epidemic outbreak occurred during
the month of October and the Mid-
dle America Research Unit, with the
cooperation of the Canal Zone Health
Bureau, succeeded in isolating and
identifying the virus. The Health
Bureau will provide assistance for
the new studies.
The A2 Hong Kong Influenza virus
has caused widespread outbreaks in
various areas of the Far East, but
none has occurred in other parts of
the world except the Canal Zone.
In the United States there have been
some cases, but mostly among mil-
itary people returning from the Far
East.
It is now known that this new
strain of influenza is markedly differ-
ent from all previous types and that
people who have had the earlier
types of influenza, or the vaccines
to these types, are not protected
against this new infection. Because
of this, it is possible that if and
when this new influenza spreads to
other parts of the world, including
the United States, very large num-
bers of people may be affected.
During the peak of the epidemic
in the Canal Zone in the first weeks
of October, health authorities esti-
mated that several thousand persons
were affected with the illness.
School and work absenteeism in-
creased sharply; health clinics around


the Istlhmus reported their patient
load doubled.
The studies to be conducted in
Paraiso and Pedro Miguel will seek
answers to such questions as: How
many people in a community are
affected by this illness? Which age
groups are hit the hardest-are adults
or children more affected? What
portion of those who become ill have
a mild illness and what portion be-
come seriously ill?
In the 1963 research in Paraiso,
the Middle America Research Unit
obtained much important informa-

Screams Being Heard


At BHS Auditorium


Passersby in the vicinity of the
Balboa High School Auditorium on
recent evenings may have been
startled by a bloodcurdling feminine
scream. In case they have been
wondering if someone was being
murdered, someone was indeed-in
the Drama Department's rehearsal of
"The Mousetrap," Agatha Christie's
mystery chiller to be presented
December 5, 6, and 7 at 8 p.m.
The scream, obviously the last one
the doomed woman will ever utter,
opens the action of the play. The
first mouse has been caught in The
Mousetrap and from that point to
the final curtain, the audience might


just as well be imprisoned in a
gigantic mousetrap too-so enthral-
ling is the action devised by this
master of mystery thrillers.
A critic for the London Evening
Standard had this to say of Agatha
Christie after seeing The Mousetrap,
the longest running play in the his-
tory of the London stage: "She is
like a perfect hostess serving hem-
lock at a cocktail party, carrying on
as if nothing had happened until the
last guest clutches his throat in
agony and slumps, shrieking, to the
floor. It is the best and most civilized
approach to murder."

40 Feet
6 inches put into effect October 21.
The 40-foot maximum draft gives
certain large ships a valuable in-
crease in the amount of cargo they
can carry through the Panama Canal.
It is a cargo bonus granted by the
Canal during the time the level of
Gatun Lake rises above 86.50 feet
during the last part of the rainy
season.
Last year the 40-foot allowance
was effective as early as August 2.
This year, however, the lake was
slow in reaching the 86.50-foot mark
because of the large demand on
power from the Gatun Hydroelectric
Station, heavy traffic and dry weather
over the Catun Lake watershed.
Heavy rains during the past few
weeks put the lake level over 86.50
feet.
Meanwhile the level of Madden
Lake has been rising steadily, going
from 240.89 feet October 31 to
244.49 feet on the morning of Nov-
ember 12. Although rains in Balboa
and Cristobal have been light, heavy
rainfall is being reported in the
watershed areas.

Group Proposed

To Guide New

Medical Careers

The formation of a new organiza-
tion, Medical Explorers, to provide
vocational guidance to boys inter-
ested in medicine as a career, was
proposed by Health Bureau Direc-
tor Col. H. H. Ziperman, speaking
before a group of high school boys
and their parents.
Medical Explorer, is to be spon-
sored by the Isthmian Medical
Association and Colonel Ziperman
will serve as the institutional repre-
sentative to the Medical Explorers
Post.
William J. Hays, Boy Scout Execu-
tive with the Canal Zone Council,
spoke briefly, outlining how the voca-
tional guidance type organization
came about within the overall Scout-
ing movement. He discussed the
problems that youth has in selecting
the proper occupation to enter. Hays
pointed out that Medical Explorers
is to be completely disassociated
from regular Scouting activities.
The first meeting of the Medical
Explorers is scheduled for Tuesday,
November 19, at 7 p.m., at Gorgas
Hospital. Post officers are to be
elected and activities will be planned.
A committee made up of military
and civilian members of the Pacific
side communities will serve as ad-
visers. Serving as chainnan is Col.
A. A. Howard, assisted by Col. J. S.
Woodard, Jr., J. L. Schumacher,
D. R. Lohse, and J. H. Simson.
Post Adviser for the program is
R. Stinson, assisted by M. G6mez
and J. E. Young.
The following vocational programs
have been planned: Tuesday, De-
cember 3, at 7 p.m. Dr. W. T. Bailey
will speak on Radioisotopes in Med-
icine; Tuesday, January 14, at 7 p.m.
Col. L. M. Jackson, Director of
Gorgas Hospital, will speak on Med-
ical Education; Tuesday, January 28,
at 7 p.m. Dr. D. C. DeLong, Chief,
Laboratory Gorgas Hospital, will

and Tuesday, February 11, at 7 p.m.
W. T. Gaudy, Assistant Director,
and J. L. Schumacher, Administra-
tive Officer, Gorgas Hospital, will

BETTER NEVER THAN LATE
Radio has a distinct advantage
over television.
It can't show old movies.

$840 in Awards,

Checks Presented

For Suggestions

Incentive awards checks totaling
$840- were presented recently by
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber and
Capt. Axton T. Jones (representing
Governor Leber in the Atlantic side
ceremony) in separate ceremonies.
The suggestions resulted in estimated
tangible benefits of $2,696 to the
Panama Canal organization.
The highest award, $100, was
presented by Captain Jones to Wil-
liam G. Hill of the Sanitation Divi-
sion, Atlantic area, for suggesting
the repair of salvageable boots with
rubber "Hot Patch" rather than dis-
carding them. Hill's suggestion means
a saving of $1,500 yearly for the
Canal organization.
The second highest award, a
check for $60, went to Arnaldo
Rook of Coco Solo Hospital whose
suggestion to assign code calls
(paging system) for employees at
Coco Solo Hospital results in a $450
yearly saving to the Canal.
Fifty dollar award checks were
presented to Edgar E. Taylor (Navi-
gation), Adelaide Seldon (Treasury),
and Roger Swain (Navigation).
Maybelle B. Walker, Administra-
tive Services Division; John F.
Brown, SS Cristobal; and Edward
B. Parker, Electrical Division, re-
ceived $40 incentive awards for their
suggestions. A $35 incentive award
went to Luis E. Wong, Coco Solo
Hospital.
Twenty-five dollar checks were
awarded to Jolie A. Seeley, James
Bradley, Augustine F. Morgan, Ade-
laide M. Seldon, Peggy Guchereau,
and Ronald E. Angermuller.

Admission is free.


BE SAFE, BE SEEN
Is a lady pedestrian safer in a
mini-skirt after dark? The following
statement from the American Auto-
mobile Association indicates that she
is: "The headlights of modern cars
aim downward and readily pick up
the stockings or bare legs of women
in the beam. Naturally, the more
stocking or leg exposed, the easier
it is for motorists to spot and thus
prevent an accident."

You'll live a longer, richer, and
happier life if you work more and
worry less.


Not far away were three more little
pumkins. So they joined. In they
went e e e e e e e eeeee went the
door but the pumkins did not get
scared. So on they went. Soon they
saw a mummy. Boy did they run.
But then one said I'm not scared,
so lets go back. So back they went.
Then they saw a witch she look so
skary that they ran further in the
house. But the witch still foloed
them. Soon the witch looked liked
she wanted to do something bad.
She did! She wanted to cook them.
She told them to get on a stick. But
they did'nt they pushed her in so
that was the end of her. Now it was
time for them to go. So on they
went, it was a very spooky night for
them. Now it was time to go home
so they said goodby. THE END."
Makes you kind of glad you stayed
home that night, doesn't it?

SOGGY DOUGHNUT AWARD:
To Jimmy Shobe, otherwise known
as Captain Nemo, whose boat sank
off Pier 1 in Coco Solo last week
after its first trip in salt water.

Jerry Schear and Felipi Cazobon
did a nice job in organizing the
Veterans Day celebration on the
Pacific side. And did you see the
Canal Zone Police marching con-
tingent in the parade. We heard
one teenager crack, "Hey, man . .
Dig the new TV program-"FUZZ
PATROL!" . ." But, your unit
looked great, fellas. Honest.

When you see the members of
Dotty's Ladies League gathered
around the coffee table during the
break, you know something's up. But
the final proof needed is when you
hear Wanda Mann start laughing-it
sounds like Phyllis Diller. That means
Dot Benny is back from leave and
telling the other gals tales of adven-
tures in the U.S. of A. The other
gals are Jean Wilson, Fannie Sosa,
Angie Rodriguez, and Marian Mal-
lory. (Or at least that's what the note
said that I found inside my Corn
Flakes package at breakfast!).

Herb "Microbio" Raybourne and
Stu "All right, Animals" Brown really
run the boys through their paces
during practice for varsity sports
over at the Balboa High School. Of
course, I watch all this from a dis-
tance. The last time I saw Stu, he
greeted me warmly and slapped me
on the back. And that was when
I got a slipped spine, not just a disk
-three crushed ribs-a permanent
crease on my left lung-and a hernia
in my shoulder. O course, I'm just
kidding, but wow! that Stu is strong.
Upstairs at the Balboa Gym, is no
place to get lost, fellas, especially
during a girls gym class. Can you
imagine getting a judo hip throw
from Pat Lehman, a couple of
Karate chops from Clemmie Young
-and a lecture from the two of
them?? The only person you'd want
to see after that would be Doctor
Dan Douglass so he could check on
the damage and give you a repair
estimate!
As for me, I think I'll stick to
Bingo on Thursday nights . .

Ernest K. Gann, the author of
many novels of adventure and sus-
pense, has turned to personal re-
miniscences in Song of the Sirens.
It is about the 17 boats he has owned
and sailed during his boat-loving
lifetime, and the voyages he has
made in all oceans of the world.
This interwoven series of yarns
makes good reading for seagoing
and armchair sailing enthusiasts.
One of the better suspense stories
is Elizabeth Fenwick's Goodbye,
Aunt Elva. A little old lady is kid-
napped by a most unpleasant mother
and son and imprisoned in a sinister
house. Her spunk and an appealing
young beatnik overcome the villains.
A readable novel is The Aristocrat
by Conrad Richter. It centers around

survivor of the first family of a Penn-

tion about viruses causing respira-

these illnesses in relation to the
seasons, and about the distribution
of these illnesses in various age
groups. These results have been
published in several important
scientific papers and soon will be
described to the people who partici-
pated in the study.
As in 1963, certain families in the
two communities chosen for the new
studies will be asked to provide de-
tailed information about any recent
family illnesses, and several hundred
members of the community, picked
at random, will be asked to give a
small specimen of blood which will
be used in various tests.
Health authorities pointed out
that the "splendid cooperation" pro-
vided by the Paraiso community con-
tributed greatly to the success of
the 1963 research. They are looking
forward to the same response this
time.

Iniciaran Estudios Sobre


Nuevo Tipo de Influenza


Estudios sobre importantes aspec-
tos del nuevo tipo de influenza que
apareci6 en la Zona del Canal re-
cientemente se Ilevaran a cabo du-
rante las pr6ximas semanas en las
comunidades de Paraiso y Pedro Mi-
guel. La investigaci6n sera realizada
por el Instituto de Investigaci6n de
la America Central, que llev6 a cabo
encuesta similar en Paraiso en 1963
sobre infecciones respiratorias en los
tr6picos.
La Zona del Canal es el primero


y hasta ahora el uinico lugar en el
Hemisferio Occidental donde se ha
presentado una epidemic de la in-
fluenza causada por el virus A2 de
Influenza de Hong Kong. El brote
epid6mico ocurri6 durante el mes de
octubre y el Instituto de Investiga-
ci6n de la America Central, con la
cooperaci6n de la Direcci6n M6dica
de la Zona del Canal, logr6 aislar
e identificar dicho virus.

Autorizaron ya los


40 Pies de Calado


Un calado de 40 pies, el maximo
que hasta ahora se ha permitido a
las naves que usan el Canal, fue
puesto en vigor el martes 12 de no-
viembre, de acuerdo con aviso en-
viado a los navieros por el Capitan
A. L. Gallin, de la Armada de Esta-
dos Unidos, Jefe de la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n del Canal de Panama.
El calado, que es efectivo a partir
de esta semana, represent un au-
mento de 6 pulgadas sobre el calado
de 39 pies 6 pulgadas, puesto en
vigor el 21 de octubre.
El calado maximo de 40 pies per-
mite a ciertas naves de gran tamafio
aumentar la cantidad de carga que
pueden transportar por el Canal de
PanamA. Representa una ventaja
que se otorga durante la Apoca en
que el nivel del Lago Gatin se man-
tiene arriba de los 86.50 pies, du-
rante la parte final de la estaci6n
lluviosa.
El afio pasado se puso en vigor
el calado de 40 pies el 2 de agosto.
Este ano, sin embargo, el lago tard6
en legar a la marca de los 86.5
pies debido a la gran demand de
energia el6ctrica en la Planta Hidro-
elkctrica de Gat6n, al enorme tra-
fico de naves y a la estaci6n seca
que prevaleci6 sobre la cuenca del
Lago Gatin. Las fuertes lluvias de
las ultimas semanas elevaron el nivel
del lago sobre los 86.50 pies.
Mientras tanto, el nivel del Lago
Madden ha estado subiendo firme-
mente de 240.89 pies, el 31 de octu-
bre, a 244.49 pies en la mariana del


12 de noviembre. A pesar de que
las lluvias han sido ligeras en Balboa
y Crist6bal, ha habido fuerte preci-
pitaci6n pluvial en las areas de la
cuenca del Lago Gatin.

Jefe de la Secci6n Elctrica, del
Ramo Electromecanico de la Divi-
si6n de Ingenieria del Canal; y Di6-
genes Quintero Piza, quien es Jefe
de Almac6n en el PAD. Todos ellos
Ilevan muchos afios de servicio al
Cobierno de Estados Unidos en la
Zona del Canal.
A pesar de que muchos paname-
fios dan por descontado que el Ge-
neral Quintero Villarreal fue chiri-
cano, la verdad es que naci6 en la
bella poblaci6n de Pes6, en la Pro-
vincia de Herrera; para ser mas exac-
tos, el 17 de noviembre de 1860.
Desde muy niiio fue a vivir con sus
padres a David, donde aprendi6 a
querer coino pocos su pequefia pa-
tria chiricana; al igual que los pana-
mefios de cierta posici6n de ese en-
tonces, realize sus studios en BogotA.
En 1895 inici6 su carrera pfblica,
cuando fue nombrado, por aclama-
ci6n, Alcalde de David. Nacido en
el seno de una familiar liberal y fo-
goso por naturaleza, tom6 parte acti-
va en las grandes batallas que se
libraron en el Istno de PanamA, du-
rante la guerra civil que se conoce
como La Guerra de los Mil Dias.
Al terminar el conflict era General
de Brigada y Prefecto de ]a Provin-
cia de Chiriqui. Abraz6 la causa de
la independencia en 1903 con el fer-
vor que lo caracterizaba y sirvi6 a
su Patria en las mis cameras posicio-
nes. En 1921, fue Comandante en
Jefe de las Fuerzas Panameiias en
la Guerra de Coto. Vivi6 muchos
moments de gloria y muri6 en la
pobreza, a ]a edad de 94 aios, el 22
de febrero de 1954.
Uno de sus mejores elogios lo hizo
el gran historiador national Ruben
Dario Carles: "Contemplando al Ge-
neral Quintero en la humildad y sen-
cillez de su vida, pobre pero enal-
tecido, 61, que fue de los dirigentes
de la Naci6n que manej6 millones,
pienso que es de justicia y de raz6n,
realzar la honradez y buen manejo
de nuestros hombres que hicieron la
Independencia y condujeron a la
Repibblica en sus primeros aios de
vida independiente".

El CapitAn Justin J. Bonanno,
prActico de primer categoria del
Canal de PanamA (foto en la secci6n
inglesa), recibi6 la Condecoraci6n
por Servicios Meritorios de Ex alum-
nos, uno de los honors mas altos
que confiere la Academia de Marina
Mercante de Estados Unidos a los
que se han graduado en ella. La
entrega fue efectuada en la Cena
Anual de Entrega de Premios, en
Kings Point, y constituy6 uno de los
mis importantes events de las Bo-
das de Plata de la Academia.
Miembro de una de las gradua-
ciones de tiempo de guerra en 1943,
el CapitAn Bonanno se uni6 a la
United States Lines al graduarse y
permaneci6 con esa compafiia du-
rante casi 14 ainos. Fue nombrado
CapitAn en 1947 y sirvi6 como ge-
rente de operaciones de la compa-
nia en Amberes y en el area del Be-
nelux de 1953 a 1955, hacihndose a
la mar nuevamente en 1956. Rcnun-
ci6 en octubre de 1957 para conver-
tirse en practice del Canal de Pana-
ma, Ilegando a ser prctico de pri-
mera categoria en 1966.


El CapitAin Bonanno fuc uno de
los fundadores del Capitulo de la
Zona del Canal de la Asociaci6n de
Ex alumnos de la Academia y ha sido
su president desde 1964. Se ha in-
teresado much en difundir infor-
macion acerca de Kings Point en
las escuelas secundarias locales, ac-
tuando come ex alumno representan-
te para el Programa de Reclutamien-
to de la Academia, y como miembro
del Coniith del Gobernador de la
Zona del Canal para escoger los es-
tudiantes que serin enviados a la
Academia. Tambi6n ha hecho mas
fAcil el reclutamiento de prActicos

Consejos Civicos de las Comunida-
des Latinoamericanas en coopera-
ci6n con la Divisi6n de Escuelas de
la Zona del Canal, tendra lugar el

las 6 p.m. en la Piscina de Gamboa.
En esta competencia podran par-
ticipar los estudiantes de las Escue-
las Latinoamericanas de la Zona del
Canal que hayan cumplido 17 aiios.
Este aflo, mas bien que presentar
una competencia entire los sectors
Atlintico y Pacifico, la competencia
tendra mAs bien un caricter de tor-
.co entire las diversas comunidades.
Antes de la prueba principal de la
competencia en la que estarA en
juego el Trofeo del Gobernador, los
pequefios tritones, de 10 alios o me-
nos, ofreceirn una exhibici6n de
clavados.
Los premios donados por la Mu-
tual de Omaha serin exhibidos en
las escuelas de las diferentes comu-
nidades latinoamericanas.
Desde ya se anticipa que la com-
petencia de este afio sera sumamente
refiida, pues los nadadores estin
practicando diariamente con el fin de
star en las mejores condiciones para
el event.



o W: 7-


-Vamos a ver cual es la explicaci6n que
nos da.


Conducci6n y
Television
Carl Johanson de Eskilstuna, Sue-
cia, fue multado per la policia por
haber sidio sorprendido rnientras ob-
saercaba un program de television
cuando conducia por la via public.
Cuando el juez lo amonesto, al repli-
c6 c(indidamente: "Estaba mirando


Inseparables compafieras a la hora
de la merienda, a las 10 a.m. y a las
2:45 p.m., son la Sra. Armonia de
Botello y la Srta. Gloria Branch.
Ambas pertenecen al simpatico gru-
po de operarias de perforadoras IBM
del Centro de Procesamiento de
Dates del Edificio de Administraci6n
del Canal.

Y ya que hablamos del sim.pftico
grupo de muchachas que trabajan
en las perforadoras IBM del Centro
de Procesamiento de Datos, hay en-
tre ellas un grupo que merece una
menci6n especial per su consagra-
ci6n al trabajo. Son ellas Icelyn An-
derson, Caroline Buchanan, Linda
Burke, Jean Cockburn y Felicia
Myers.

La raz6n per la que merece una
menci6n especial es que todas ellas
resident en la ciudad de Col6n y
tienen que viajar diariamente 100
millas en tren para poder cumplir
con sus deberes. Bueno, que eso de
viajar 100 millas diarias en tren, de
Col6n a PanamA y viceversa, tiene
sus ventajas. Primero, se acostum-
bran a ser madrugadoras, pues deben
tomar el tren que sale de Col6n a
las 5 a.m. Segundo, que cuando Ile-
gan al trabajo, Ilegan bien despier-
tas, con el fresco aire de la mariana.
Tercero, que cuando llegan a la Es-
taci6n de Balboa Heights, les espera
un buen ejercicio para las piernas,
pues tienen que subir la loma donde
esta el Edificio de Administraci6n
del Canal.

Y la uiltima ventaja, quizAs la mis
important para las representantes
del bell sexo,'es que se conservan
en line, precisamente por esos via-
jes diaries en tren. Si tomamos en
consideraci6n que cuando el tren
esti en movimiento da un promedio
conservador de 200 sacudidas por
milla, tenemos que estas simpAticas
damitas se aguantan un promedio
diario de 20.000 sacudidas en el
cuerpo, clue son muchas mais de las
que puede dar cualquier institute de
belleza en el mundo entero para ayu-
dar a las damas a conservar una
line esbelta y bella.

Y a propdsito de la secci6n de
mnquinas perfororaoras IBM del
Centro de Procesamiento de Datos,
alli trabajan tambi6n Mario Delga-
do, Robert Goldson, Benjamin He-
rrera, Jesis Barahona, Lincoln Pren-
dergast y Aristides Perez, que son
inuy afortunados pues siempre tienen
a su alrededor un "panorama encan-
talor".

Y yindonos para los lados .del
Atlhntico, les diremos que Felix
Waisome, oficinista en las oficinas
principles de la Divisi6n Industrial,
en Mount Hope, tiene mdiltiples afi-
ciones y habilidades que le ayudan
a desempeniar correctamente su tra-
bajo en esa important dependencia
del Canal. Pero su principal preocu-
paci6n es cuidar de que la maiquina
duplicadora de su oficina est6 en
perfectas condiciones siempre. Fue-
ra de sus horas de trabajo, s61o tiene
una aficion: las muchachas.

Otro que tiene que viajar todos los
dias de Colon a Panama, y vicever-
sa, para ir a su trabajo, es Anto-
nio Aciego. Aciego reside en Col6n,
pero trabaja en la Imprenta del Canal
de PanamA, en La Boca, done es
jefe del grupo de impresores que
hacen possible que ustedes lean el
SPILI.WAY todas las semanas.

Talmbidn nos encontramos, en las


mia. un program de seguridad caminera". oficinas principals de la Divisi6n


Industrial, a Victor Mendoza, dibu-
jante en la secci6n de ingenieria de
la division. Victor reside en la ciu-
dad de PanamA y diariamente ma-
neja toda la distancia entire el Paci-
fico y el AtlAntico para ir a su
trabajo. Tantas veces ha recorrido
la carretera, que su carrito japonhs
ya ha aprendido a esquivar los ba-
ches del camino.
a 0 0
Uno de los conductores de auto-
mbvil mas cumplidos que tiene la
Division de Transporte a Motor en
sus instalaciones de Mount Hope es
Elmo Ceballos. Ceballos reside en
Buena Vista, mros o menos a medio
camino entire PanamA y Col6n. Dice
que le encanta ese lugar y que es
tierra buena para la agriculture y
que como llueve much siempre esta
bien regada. Tiene su casita, done
vive con su sefora Ana Teresa Cossi,
chiricana de pura cepa, y sus tres
hijos, un var6n y dos mujercitas.'

Volviendo a las oficinas principa-
les de la Divisi6n Industrial del
Canal en Mount Hope, nos encon-
tramos alli con el inico ingeniero
nAutico panamefio que trabaja en la
empresa del Canal. Es el Ingeniero
Carlos Alvarado, resident en la ciu-
dad de Col6n. Persona reservada y
de agradable trato, goza del aprecio
de todos sus compafieros. Gusta de
la lectura de obras series y que se
refieran a su profesi6n. Asi mismo
le gustan much las revistas profe-
sionales. Pero sus amigos intimos
nos han dicho que Carlos es la inica
persona en Panama que tiene la co-
lecci6n complete de la revista Play-
boy y no creemos que ninguno de
nuestros lectores dude de la seriedad
de dicha revista.

Volviendonos a referir a los em-
pleados que tienen que viajar gran-
des distancias para ir a su trabajo
y regresar al hogar, les diremos que
no son solamente los que hemos
mencionado, sine que hay muchos
mis. Pero hay otros que tienen que
caminar much para poder cumplir
con sus funciones. Entre ellos estin
los mensajeros del Edificio de Admi-
nistraci6n de Balboa Heights, que
caminan varias millas en un dia de
trabajo. Uno de ellos es George
Griffith. Para muchos de los lectores
ese nornbre no significa much. Pero
para los que fueron fanliticos del fa-
moso equipo General Electric del
beisbol professional panamefio, les
diremos que no es otro que el famo-
so "Gallo de Oro" Griffith, que tuvo
tan magnifica actuaci6n en ese de-
porte.

Pero, creemos que el campe6n de
los mensajeros caminadores estai en
las Esclusas de Gatun. Es el alto y
delgado Morrice Lee. Ademais de sus
caminatas extra, tiene que hacer 11
recorridos diaries desde la Oficina
de Tiempo, en el nivel intermedio,
hasta lo alto de la Torre del Con-
trol de las Esclusas de Cat6n. Y lleva
42 alios de servicio. En su tiempo
extra, lo que mnis le gusta es efectuar
caminatas.

Y hasta el proximo viernes, cuan-
do estaremos contindoles algo de los
que pertenecemos a la gran familiar
del Canal de Panamai. Enviennos sus
impresiones o algo que descent que
publiquemos a COCTELEHA, Oficina
de Informaci6n, Box M, Balboa
Heights, C.Z.

Imos trajes dce bano de las mucha-
chas son tan braves hoy dia, que
probablemente hay mis algod6n en
el cuello de un frasco de aspirina.

Premios de Estimulo


Por $840 Entregaron


Cheques de premios de estimulo
por un total de $840 fueron entrega-

dor de la Zona del Canal, W. P.
Leber y el Capitin Axton T. Jones
(representando al Gobernador Leber
en la ceremonial del sector AtlAntico)
en ceremonies separadas. Las suge-
rencias resultaron en beneficios tan-
gibles estimados de $2.696 para la
organizaci6n del Canal de PanamA.
El premio mais alto, $100, fue en-
tregado por el CapitAn Jones a Wil-
liam G. Hill de la Divisi6n de Sani-
dad, en el Area del Atl6ntico, por
sugerir la reparaci6n de botas de
caucho con parches calientes en vez
de botarlas. La sugerencia de Hill
significa un ahorro de $1.500 anuales
a la organizaci6n del Canal.
El segundo premio, un cheque por
$60, fue para Arnaldo Rock, del Hos-
pital de Coco Solo, cuya sugerencia
de asignar lamadas claves para los

Iniciaran Estudios .

(Vien e la pdgina 1)
Kong ha causado series brotes en
distintas parties del Lejano Oriente,
pero ninguno ha ocurrido en otras
parties del mundo except en la Zona
del Canal. En Estados Unidos se
han presentado algunos casos, pero
en su mayoria de personal military
de regreso del Lejano Oriente.
Se sabe ya que este nuevo tipo de
influenza es muy distinto de todos
los anteriores y que las personas que
han padecido de los tipos anteriores
de influenza, o que han recibido las
vacunas contra dichos tipos, no
estAn protegidos contra esta nueva
infecci6n.
Durante el period culminante de
la epidemic en la Zona del Canal en
las primeras semanas de octubre, las
autoridades medicas estimaron que
varies miles de personas fueron afec-
tadas por la enfermedad.
Los studios que se llevarAn a
cabo en Paraiso y Pedro Miguel es-
tarin encaminados a responder a
preguntas tales como: iCuAntas per-
sonas en una comunidad son afec-
tadas por esta enfennedad? fCuA-
les grupos de edad son los mis afec-
tados-los adults o los niinos? dQu6
proporci6n de los enfermos son afec-
tados levemente y que porci6n son
afectados seriamente?
En la encuesta llevada a cabo en
1963 en Paraiso, el Instituto de In-
vestigaci6n de la Amrnica Central
obtuvo muchos datos importantes
sobre los virus que causan enferme-
dades respiratorias, sobre la inciden-
cia de estas enfernedades en rela-
ci6n con las estaciones, y sobre la
distribuci6n de estas enfennedades
entire los distintos grupos de edades.
Estos resultados han sido publicados
en importantes trabajos cientificos y
pronto serin comunicados a las per-
sonas que participaron en el studio.
Como en 1963, se pedirA a ciertas
families en las dos comunidades es-
cogidas para los nuevos studios que
suministren informes detallados so-
bre recientes enfermedades entire
sus miemnbros, y se solicitarl a various
cientos de miembros de la comuni-
dad, escogidos al azar, que den una
pequefia muestra de sangre que se
emplearA en distintas pruebas.
Las autoridades m6dicas seiala-
ron que la "espl6ndida cooperaci6n"
que dio la comunidad de Paraiso
contribuy6 notablemente al 6xito de
la investigaci6n en 1963. Se espera
igual cooperaci6n esta vez.


Finaliza Hoy en R. City


Serie de Baloncesto L.A.


El Torneo Intercolegial de Balon-
cesto continue el viernes pasado en
el gimnasio de Paraiso, donde se en-
frentaron por tercera vez los quin-
tetos femeninos y masculinos de las
Escuelas Secundarias de Paraiso y
Rainbow City.
En la rama femenina, el equipo
de Rainbow City venci6 por tercera
vez al de Paraiso por anotaci6n de
31 a 12 despu6s de aventajar en el

Brady, con 12 puntos, Cox con 8,
Greaves con 5 y Laurie con 4 fueron
las mayors anotatoras de Rainbow
City, mientras que MacFarlane con
9 y Nelson con 3 fueron las mayores
anotadoras de Paraiso.
En la rama masculina, en cambio,
en un partido de final electrizante
Paraiso se impuso por tercera vez
a Rainbow City por anotaci6n de
45 a 43. Faltando 20 segundos el


partido se encontraba empatado
cuando Garfield Mayers, el h6roe de
la noche, encest6 los dos puntos del
triunfo para Paraiso. Los mayors
anotadores por Paraiso fueron:
E. Benjamin, 14; H. Joseph y R. Oga-
rro, 8 cada uno; R. Cumberbatch, 6;
y A. Bett, 5.
Por Rainbow City sobresalieron
en las anotaciones: R. Turnbull con
12; G. Charles y R. Ruiz, con 8 cada
uno; y G. Beckford con 5.
Arbitraron los partidos los profe-
sores David S. Salamin y John West.
El iltimo partido de la series se cele-
