Governor-President's Annual Safety Trophy for 1968 is presented by Gov.
W. P. Leber to L. A. Ferguson, Supply and Community Service Director.
At the same ceremony, Ferguson presented plaques to executives represent-
ing units of the bureau which have compiled exceptional safety records.


Annual Safety Trophy


Won by S&CS Bureau


The Supply and Community Serv-
ice Bureau has been awarded the
Governor-President's Annual Safety
Trophy for the calendar year 1968.
It was the fourth time this bureau has
won the award since the Canal or-
ganization's safety award plan was
inaugurated in 1953.
The trophy was presented by Gov.
W. P. Leber to L. A. Ferguson, Sup-
ply and Community Service Director,
in a ceremony held in the Balboa
Theater in the presence of Panama
Canal bureau directors, division
chiefs, and hundreds of bureau
employees.
Governor Leber pointed out that
this made the fourth time the bureau
has made "especially noteworthy
progress" in accident prevention-an
unequalled record in the history of
the trophy. The award was earned
by personnel of the bureau for having
achieved a 47 percent improvement
in its calendar year accident rate over
its own previous 3-year rate.
"I wish to congratulate you on
this commendable achievement," the
Governor said, "And request that you
convey to all concerned in the Sup-
ply and Community Service Bureau
my appreciation for their splendid co-
operation in helping reduce the in-
cidence of injuries to our employees,
and for the beneficial effect it has
had in helping the Canal Zone Cov-


Appeals Chief

Maurice L. Etzell, Alternate Chair-
man, Canal Zone Board of Appeals
and an employee of the U.S. Civil
Service Commission, Washington,
D.C., will arrive on the Isthmus this
weekend to serve as Chairman of
Board of Appeals hearings here.
The Canal Zone Board of Appeals
will be conducting hearings on sev-
eral classification appeals brought by
employees of Canal Zone agencies.
The hearings will be held in Room 2,
Panama Canal Training Center,
Ancon, Monday, March 24.
With Etzell as chairman, four local
members comprise the Board of
Appeals.

meet its 1968 goal in the Mission
Safety-70 Program."
The Annual Safety Trophy is
awarded by the Governor to the
bureau achieving the highest per-
centage of improvement in its dis-
abling injury frequency rate over its
own previous 3-year average rate,
providing no fatal accident was
caused in the bureau during the year
for which the award was made.
Last year the Engineering and
Construction Bureau won the trophy.
As part of the ceremony, Ferguson
presented plaques to executives repre-
senting units which have compiled
more than a million man hours with-
out a lost time accident. Plaques went
to: R. P. Laverty, general manager
of the Supply Division; H. J. Chase,
assistant superintendent of the Mar-
keting Branch; A. I. Bauman, super-
intendent of the Grounds Branch; and
H. C. Egolf, chief of the Community
Services Division.

April 4, the SPILLWAY will be dis-
tributed Thursday that week.
This will mean a 1 day advance in

Canal Press Office not latter than
Friday afternoon of the preceding
week. Only urgent material can be
received as late as noon Monday and

Zone Policemen

Take Training

Courses in U.S.

Lt. Ralph C. Stone, Assistant Dis-
trict Police Commander, Cristobal,
and Lt. A. I. Hennanny, Shift Com-
mander and Training Coordinator,
Balboa, left for the United States
recently to attend 3-month courses
in Police Science-Administration.
Lieutenant Stone will attend the
Southern Police Institute, University
of Louisville, Louisville, Ky. The
course runs from March 17 to June 8.
The Southern Police Institute was
organized in 1951 to train supervisory
and administrative police personnel.
Top police educators and admin-
istrators from all parts of the United
States are sent to Louisville to teach
this course.
Lieutenant Hermanny is attending
the National Police Academy of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation in
Washington, D.C. This course runs
from March 10 to May 30. The pur-
pose of the FBI Academy is to train
officers in modern police methods,
administrative, and scientific. These
officers return to conduct in-service
training at their respective police
departments.
Chief Caddis Wall of the Canal
Zone Police has announced that nine
Canal Zone Police officers will attend
courses such as t!hee in the United
States during this and next fiscal year.


Civic Councils Report


Pet Control Amendment


Wins Community Support


Community support of the pro-
posed pet control amendment to the
Canal Zone Administration and Reg-
ulations providing greater control of
dogs, cats, and other pets of residents
of the Canal Zone, was announced at
the regular session of the U.S. Civic
Council Executive session presided
over by Gov. W. P. Leber last week.
He stated that he would approve it
and would announce an effective date
soon.
The proposed amendment is a
modification of the leash law re-
quested by some members of the
Civic Council early last year. It pro-
vides that a person who owns, keeps,
or has custody of a dog or cat that is
a public nuisance, may not permit
such animal to run at large in the
Canal Zone. It further states that a
dog or cat will be considered a public
nuisance when the owner or cus-
todian has been so notified in writing
by the Poundmaster.
The Poundmaster will decide the
animal is a public nuisance upon
receipt of such complaints as exces-
sive barking or whining, molesting


passersby, chasing vehicles, upsetting
garbage, attacking other domestic
animals, being a nuisance around
living quarters or public buildings,
and damaging property.
The new regulations will state in
part, that a dog or cat shall be con-
sidered as running at large when it
is off the premises of the living quar-
ters of its owner or custodian and is
not under the immediate control of
a person capable of managing it; or
on a leash or confined in a closed
vehicle or receptacle.
Governor Leber and members of
the Civic Councils had discussed the
ruling at previous meetings. They had
concluded that a strict leash law re-
quiring residents of the Canal Zone
to keep their pets on leashes when
leaving their masters' residences in
the Canal Zone would be unenforce-
able and useless without the full
support of the majority of the people.
It also was announced at the meet-
ing that consideration is being given
to amending the Canal Zone Admin-
istration and Regulations to include

Ex-Aussie GI Returns


To Express His Thanks


Two letters written as a kindly
gesture more than 50 years ago,
brought an elderly Australian ex-
soldier half way around the world to
express his thanks.
Leslie G. Worthington, retired Aus-
tralian Army Major, who arrived in
Balboa aboard the P & O liner Orsova
from Sydney last week, wanted to
find someone to thank personally for
writing his mother in 1917 after he
traveled through the Panama Canal
en route to France aboard an Austra-
lian troopship.
In a letter written to the Panama
Canal prior to his arrival here,
Worthington said that he and other
troops en route to Europe aboard the

transport Themistocles tossed notes
overboard at Gatun Locks asking the
finders to write their mothers and
relatives back home in Australia
saying that they had seen them and
they were well.
His mother had received two let-
ters, one written by the late Mrs.
Alex Lowande, whose husband was
an employee at Gatun Locks at that
time and the other from Mrs. Adolf
Stellhorn, who was living in the town
of Gatun. Both women said in their
letters that they had gone down to
the locks to watch the Australian
transport pass through and had
picked up the notes thrown over-
board by Worthington, then a soldier
of 21. Both women told Mrs. Worth-
ington that he looked well and happy.
When the Orsova arrived in Balboa
last week, one of the first persons to
greet Worthington and his wife was
Gary Dunsmoor, an employee of the
Panama Canal Personnel Bureau. He
is the grandson of Mrs. Lowande
and her only relative still living on
the Isthmus. No records could be
found on the Stellhorn family.
Worthington presented the letter
written by his grandmother to Duns-
moor saying that it had made his late
mother very happy and something
that he and his family would always
remember, along with other pleasant
memories of the Panama Canal.
He recalled that he had been
wounded during the war and had
been sent back to Australia where he
had lived ever since. He remained in
the Australian Army, served in Aus-
tralia during World War II and had
been retired with the rank of a major
in 1951.
The Worthingtons were making a
trip around the world aboard the
Orsova as members of a 1,000-strong
Australian Women's Weekly World
Discovery Tour of 1969. This was the
first trip out of Australia for Mrs.

BROWSInG


COLLECTIOn
By Emily J. Price

In 1227 A.D. Genghis Khan died
leaving a vast empire that stretched
from the Caucasus to the China Sea.
His grandson sought to extend this
empire eastward through Russia and
Europe. The exciting story of the
great Mongol invasion is told in a
novel by Cecelia Holland, Until the
Sun Falls. The Mongol leaders, their
wives and children are all depicted
and these nomads who considered
war the chief occupation of man
come vividly to life.
Truman Capote's The Thanks-
giving Visitor is a very short book,
hardly a long short story. It is beau-
tifully done, however, and describes
an incident in the life of a small boy
on a Southern farm. There his chief
friend is an elderly spinster cousin
who helps him through a childhood
crisis. The cousin, Miss Sook, is a
winning character, as individual and
memorable as Holly Golightly in
"Breakfast at Tiffany's."
In her new novel The Gold and
Silver Hooks, Ruth Moore tells a saga
of New England family life through
generations and gives a superb por-
trait of a woman blessed and cursed


by personal integrity. This well
written novel is told with warmth
and humor.
The Angry Ocean by Ronald
Johnston concerns a very angry ocean
indeed. A volcanic island explodes
creating a 300-foot wave. In its path
is a supertanker, the largest ship in
the world, on its maiden voyage.
The crucial moment is the ultimate
test of the ship, the men who built
her, and the men who sail her. Sus-
pense and interesting detail about
the ship make this a good adventure
story.
Martin Mayer is a freelance writer
who has written novels and books on
Wall Street, law, and education, as
well as many magazine articles. All
You Know is Facts is his new book
which collects many of the articles
on various topics. Here's the story of
the great Hertz-Avis advertising
battle and what was behind it, an
account of a day in the life of Mr.
Kenneth, the hairdresser, a big dis-
cussion of mutual funds overseas, and
many more. It's interesting, inside-
sounding gossip.

carried on by the international group
is the granting of scholarships to
deserving college students. Miss Ligia
Diaz, a member of the Canal Zone
Guide Service, has the distinction of
being the first scholarship recipient
from Panama. Miss Diaz, who was
attending Saint Rose College in Al-
bany, N.Y., was awarded the scholar-
ship twice in a row and was the first
foreign student to be selected at that
college.
Miss Diaz was called upon several
times to attend meetings of the busi-
ness and professional women in that
district and gave talks about life in
Panama.

chief.
Richards' helicopter was assigned
to remove armaments from a downed
gunship. He and the gunner were on
the ground when they and their heli-
copter came under heavy small arms
fire from the Viet Cong.
The helicopter was forced away
when the pilot was wounded. Rich-
ards and the gunner spent the entire
night evading a battalion of Viet

a regulation requiring persons operat-
ing or riding a motorcycle or motor
driven cycle registered in the Canal
Zone to wear protective headgear.
A draft of the change was circulated
and discussed and also will be taken
up with the Latin American Civic
Councils. A tentative effective date
of June 1, 1969, was mentioned.
The need for a service elevator at
Gorgas Hospital, housing, street light-
ing, and renovation of the Balboa
Service Center were some of the other
subjects discussed at the meeting.
Dr. Theodoro Arias, representing
Ancon-Balboa Heights, asked for an
investigation into the need for a serv-
ice elevator at the new Corgas Hos-
pital Building. He said the present
elevators were not only unsatisfac-
tory, overworked, and inefficient but
that the hospital badly needed a
separate service elevator. lHe felt that
it was poor hospital practice to carry
garbage, food, patients, and visitors
in the same lift.
Governor Leber suggested that
something might be done about

setting aside one of the three eleva-
tors in the main bank as a service
elevator and said the matter would be
examined. He also would look into
the idea of a separate service elevator.
Both Dr. Arias and Miss Dor-
othy Hannigan, representing Diablo
Heights, complained of inadequate
luncheonette facilities at Gorgas Hos-
pital and said there was not enough
space there to store all the food
needed for the large number of cus-
tomers.
In answer to a query on the back-
ground of housing construction on
the Atlantic side, made by Mrs. Majel
Reinheimer of the Margarita Coun-
cil, Governor Leber remarked that
what had happened in the past was
of little importance now. He has in
the past and would continue to push
for additional and better housing in
all Canal Zone communities and had
been successful in such things as the
construction of the new Gorgas Hos-
pital apartments and remodeling of
older buildings. So far additional
funds for new houses had not been
authorized by Congress.
Referring to quarters rehabilita-
tion, Mrs. Doris Sanders, president of
the Margarita Council, said that she
had a number of questions concerning
possible increase of rent on these
quarters; whether the present tenants
would get back their own apartments
and amount of time for rehabilitation
and time schedule for the work.
The Governor said he would take
up these questions and that the quar-
ters would be rehabilitated over a
period of time with vacant apart-
ments being repaired first. He felt
that individual problems such as
imminent retirement and other per-
sonal factors could be considered.
Governor Leber remarked that the
Balboa Service Center needed many
improvements but that most of them
would not be feasible in a building
so old. The solution would be con-
struction of a new building. So far
funds were not available. A study is
being made of this and other similar
facilities.
Following a question by Phillip
Larke, president of the Gamboa Civic
Council, there was a general dis-
cussion of the problem faced by many
Canal Zone residents of being unable
to vote in United States elections.
Governor Leber said U.S.-citizen em-
ployees must establish residence in
the United States in order to vote.

The couple took their first trip to-

Atlantic side as the guests of the Pan-

the high lights of the tour was a visit
to Gatun Locks which Worthington
had first seen from the deck of a trans-
port so many years ago.
He said that the prospect of re-
turning to the Panama Canal was one
of the big thrills of his life but added
that traveling aboard the Orsova was
quite a bit more comfortable and
pleasant than the troop ship of long
ago.

Gente en la Noticia


Goldbourn Lewis es guardia en la Divisi6n de Termina-
les y presta servicios en los Muelles de Crist6bal. Gene-
ralmente es el ayudante del Sargento de Guardia en la
Oficina de Seguridad de los Muelles. Naci6 en Col6n el
4 de enero de 1921 y sus studios los hizo en la vieja
Escuela Secundaria de lo que en aquellos tiempos era
Silver City, hoy Rainbow City. Casado con la Sra. Estelle
Harris de Lewis, tienen tres hijos: Ricardo Lewis, actual-
mente con el Cuerpo de Sefiales del Ejercito de Estados
Unidos, y Patricia y Sonia; esta 6ltima vive aqui en
Panamal, la otra en Estados Unidos. Los esposos Lewis
tienen una nieta, Melina, de 3 afios de edad y que les
alegra much la vida. Lewis reside en Puerto Pil6n, en
un lote bastante grande. Su residencia es muy espaciosa,
por lo que en ella estA ubicada ademis la Iglesia Bau-
tista del lugar. Tiene 24 afios de servicios al Gobierno
de Estados Unidos, de los cuales 14 los trabaj6 con la
Armada de ese pais. La afici6n mis grande de Lewis es

f6nico que tiene en su residencia. Uno de sus mayores
tesoros es un disco de Louis Armstrong, grabado en 1925.
Lewis es hijo del conocido sindicalista Graham A. Lewis,
quien trabaj6 durante muchos afios con el Canal de Pa-
namA y muri6, precisamente, el Dia del Trabajo de 1966.


NOTAS DE



SALUBRIDAD


Los barbitiricos, drogas no narc6-
ticas, le han quitado el primer puesto
a las demAs drogas, por sus trAgicas
consecuencias, que incluyen la muer-
te. Son mAs peligrosos que el uso o
el abuso de los narc6ticos "fuertes",
de acuerdo con declaraciones de los
funcionarios de la Direcci6n de Sa-
lubridad de la Zona del Canal.
Los barbit6ricos llevan al abuso
mis frecuente y seriamente que cual-
quier otra droga en los Estados
Unidos.
Estas drogas, correctamente admi-
nistradas, sirven para calmar a los
pacientes y producirles suefio, dicen
los doctors. Su efecto es opuesto al
de las anfetaminas, que estimulan el
sistema nervioso central. Los barbi-
t'ricos actfan como deprimentes y
sirven para calmar la actividad de
dicho sistema.
Muchas personas toman barbitfri-
cos como una manera de escapar a
series problems personales, o para
contrarrestar el efecto de drogas
como las anfetaminas.
Frecuentemente, afirman los doc-
tores, los barbitfricos se usan en
combinaci6n con drogas tales como
el alcohol o algunos somniferos. Los
usan personas que gustan de emo-


ciones intensas, los abusadores cr6-
nicos de drogas, y los j6venes, que
experimentan con ellos.
Esas combinaciones son en extre-
mo peligrosas por su efecto sobre los
centros respiratorios del cerebro y
pueden causar series envenenamien-
tos y hasta la muerte, seg6n declaran
los medicos.
Los que abusan de los barbit6ricos
muestran muchos sintomas t6xicos,
tales como la somnolencia, temblor
en las manos, los labios y la lengua,
confusion y escaso criteria.
Entre los problems que pueden
resultar del abuso de los barbitflri-
cos estAn la delincuencia, deteriora-
ci6n de la personalidad, incapacidad
de concentrarse, y la p6rdida de
muchos empleos.
Si una persona que depend fisi-
camente de los barbituricos, suspended
su uso completamente y de repente,
puede sufrir convulsiones, series dis-
turbios mentales, y en casos extre-
mos, la muerte.
El uso correct de este medica-
mento, bajo la vigilancia de un me-
dico, puede aliviar en much a los
pacientes.
Pero sin la debida vigilancia, el
uso excesivo de ellos puede terminar
en un serio envenenamiento o pro-
ducir la muerte.
Los m6dicos de la Zona del Canal
dicen que es convenience buscar di-
recci6n y guia para el uso de los
barbitlricos, pero sefialan que es
imprudente, tonto y peligroso el
experimental con esta clase de me-
dicamentos.

Rodolfo Francisco Abbott, es uno
de los despachadores de lanchas que
durante 8 horas se encargan de que
todos los barcos que entran o salen
del Canal o de la Rada de Balboa
sean servidos con toda efectividad.
Durante las horas en que esta de tur-
no hace de todo: atiende 15 lanchas,
15 tripulaciones, el teletipo, various
telefonos, tiene que dar servicio a los
agents de barcos, y muchas atribu-
ciones mAs. "A veces no tengo tiem-
po ni para rascarme", dice muy reido
Abbott.

Jos6 de Jesuis Tufion, "Cocoy" Tu-
fion para todos los que lo conocen,
quien conect6 cinco jonrones en un
partido de softball, acaba de conectar
otro batazo de cuatro esquinas en el
Atlantico. El popular policia pana-
mefio que trabaja en Crist6bal, se
convirti6 en el orgulloso papa de un
robusto nifio de 9 libras el jueves 13
por la madrugada. Pero su abuelo-
el de la criatura, no el de "Cocoy"-
fue quien reparti6 chocolates a tuti-
plan en el Edificio de Administraci6n
de Balboa Heights.

En el s6tano del Edificio de Ad-
ministraci6n de Balboa Heights hay
un nuevo limpiabotas. Se llama'Artu-
ro Smart y estA dando un magnifico
servicio a los empleados del edificio
mAs grande de la Zona del Canal.

Aprop6sito. jSe acuerdan de
Eduardo Wilson, el que limpiaba los
zapatos anteriormente en el Edificio
de Administraci6n y al que aprecia-
ban tanto por su espiritu servicial?
Pues se fu6 para Nueva York a reu-
nirse con sus familiares, a trabajar y a
continuar sus studios. Le deseamos la
mejor de las suertes.

Hace unos 7 u 8 afios que Vivian
E. Johnson se jubil6 del servicio con
el Canal de PanamA. Hay muchos
que se dedican a descansar para el
resto de sus vidas, pero no asi el Sr.
Johnson, quien a pesar de tener 70
afios se convirti6 en hombre de ne-
gocios. Diariamente se le ve repar-
tiendo unas deliciosas empanadas de
came que, segin muchas personas,
son las mejores que se comen en la
Zona del Canal. Tiene para todos los
gustos. Sencillas, de came, para los
que las prefieren asi y bien picantes,
para los que gustan de la comida
con mayor saz6n.

Juegos de prestidigitaci6n son a-
quellos en que se engafia a la vista
con la rapidez de las manos. Se efec-
t6an con barajas, bolitas y diferentes
artefactos. La palabrita, prestidigita-
ci6n es bastante dificil de pronunciar,
como usted mismo puede comprobar
si trata de repetirla varias veces ra-
pidamente. Hay personas que equi-
vocadamente dice prestigiditaci6n.
La palabra en menci6n viene de
dos palabras, una italiana y otra
latina: "presto", que en italiano quie-
re decir rapido y digitsus, que en
latin significa dedo.

Los empleados del ala sur del Edi-
ficio de Administraci6n en Balboa
Heights estAn sufriendo leves incon-
venientes en estos dias, pero todos se
resignan debido a que los problems
que tienen son en beneficio del pro-
greso. La raz6n es que todos los
servicios higienicos del ala sur estAn
siendo renovados. Se informa que
estan hacienda un trabajo de primera
y que ya era necesario, pues una gran
parte del sistema de plomeria del
edificio data de 1914 y ya era hora
de renovarlo. Dentro de pocas sema-
nas empezarAn a trabajar en el sis-
tema de plomeria de las alas central
y norte del edificio.


James N. Howell, oficinista de
abastos y propiedades en la Divisi6n
de Servicios Administrativos, ejerce
sus obligaciones en el segundo piso
del Edificio de Administraci6n. Tie-
ne que tender a multiples detalles,
entire los que se cuenta el enorme
flujo de peri6dicos que entran al
edificio todos los dias.

Antonio Grenald, el espigado y
acucioso guia de la Zona del Canal,
se encuentra en la ciudad de David,
atendiendo el Pabell6n del Canal de
Panama. A pesar de que estA sudan-
do mAs que de costumbre, debido al
trabajo que siempre hay durante las
ferias en el interior de la Repi~blica
y principalmente, debido al calor que
hay en la Capital del Valle de la Luna
en las horas del mediodia, Grenald
se encuentra sumamente content,
pues es hombre de acci6n.

Todo el personal y equipo nece-
sarios para la presentaci6n del Canal
de Panama, el Comando Sur y el
Servicio Informativo de Estados Uni-
dos sali6 de Balboa en una caravana
de 23 vehiculos, temprano en la ma-
fiana del domingo 16 de marzo, con
destino a David. La misma caravan
se espera que saldrA el lunes 24 en
la mariana de David, pero esta vez
con destino a la Heroica Villa de
Los Santos, donde esas agencies del
Gobierno de Estados Unidos se ha-
rAn representar en la Gran Feria de
Azuero.

Aqui en el Canal de Panama, nos
acostumbramos a hablar en terminos
maritimos que generalmente, s61o los
entienden los que tienen que ver di-
rectamente con ellos. La mayoria
nos quedamos en ayunas, cuando de
terminos nauticos se trata. Y como la
COCTELERA siempre trata de averi-
guar cosas por el estilo, aqui tienen
algunas de esas palabritas. Manga:
anchura maxima del casco de un bu-
que. Eslora: longitud de un barco.
Hay tres classes diferentes de esloras.
eslora mdxima o eslora total, media
entire las lines verticales de los pun-
tos mas salientes de proa y popa del
casco; eslora de flotaci6n que es la
distancia entire los dos puntos extre-
mos de proa a popa, situados en la
misma linea de flotaci6n, y eslora en-
tre perpendiculares, que es la mAxima
distancia entire dos verticales que
pasan por los dos puntos extremes de
la parte sumergida del casco. Pero
generalmente, eslora es el largo del
buque.
o 0 o
Otra palabrita que deja a algunos
en el aire es el calado. En nAutica, el
calado es la profundidad que alcanza
la quilla de un barco, media desde la
superficie del mar. Los barcos que
navegan en el mar tienen generalmen-
te mas calado que los barcos fluviales.
Tambidn se llama calado a la altura
del agua sobre el fondo, por eso los
buques muy grandes no pueden atra-
car en muchos puertos debido a la
falta de calado.
0
Si alguna vez se encuentran con
algunas de esas palabras que los dejan
pensando, lo mejor que pueden hacer
es llamar a las sefioras, Marcia de
Ortega, Olga de Luque, Aurora de
Corchaine o Sofia de Magall6n. Tam-
bi6n pueden Ilamar a Henry Gornell,
al telefono 2-2772, pues todos ellos
trabajan en la Oficina del Traductor
Official, Sr. William F. O'Sullivan y
son experts en estos menesteres.

Si usted quiere que su nombre o
el de cualquier compafiero salga en
esta column, por favor escriba a

boa Heights, C.Z. iHasta la pr6xima!

Vino Hasta Panama


A Dar las Gracias


Dos cartas escritas hace mis de
50 afios, trajeron a un viejo soldado
australiano desde las antipodas a ex-
presar su agradecimiento.
Leslie G. Worthington, Mayor del
Ej6rcito Australiano ya retirado,
quien lleg6 a Balboa a bordo del
Orsova, de P & O Lines, la semana
pasada, procedente de Sydney, de-
seaba encontrar a alguien a quien
agradecer personalmente el haberle
escrito a su madre en 1917, cuando
61 transitaba por el Canal de PanamAt
rumbo a Francia, a bordo de un
transport de tropas australiano.
En una carta escrita al Canal de
de PanamA antes de su llegada,
Worthington dijo que 61 y otros solda-
dos, que iban a Europa a bordo del
transport Themistocles, lanzaron no-
tas en las Esclusas de Gatin, pidien-
do a los que las encontraran que
escribieran a sus madres y parientes
en Australia, dici6ndoles que los ha-
bian visto y que estaban bien.
Su madre recibi6 dos cartas, una
escrita por la sefiora de Alex Lo-
wande (q.e.p.d.), cuyo esposo traba-
jaba en las Esclusas de Gatin en ese
tiempo, y otra, de una Sra. de Adolf
Stellhorn, quien vivia en Gat6n. Am-
bas escribieron en sus cartas que ha-
bian ido a las esclusas a ver pasar el
transport australiano y habian reco-
gido las notas lanzadas por Worth-
ington, entonces un mozo de 21 afios.
Ambas escribieron a la Sra de Worth-
ington dici6ndole que su hijo se veia
bien y feliz.
Cuando el Orsova lleg6 a Balboa la
semana pasada, una de las primeras
personas en recibir a Worthington y
a su esposa fue Gary Dunsmoor, em-
pleado de la Direcci6n de Personal
del Canal. Es nieto de la Sra. de
Lowande y su 6nico descendiente
que todavia vive en el Istmo. No se
ha podido saber nada acerca de la
familiar Stellhorn.
Worthington entreg6 la carta es-
crita por su abuela a Dunsmoor,
diciendoles que ella habia hecho feliz
a su difunta madre con ese gesto que
61 y su familiar siempre recordarAn,
junto con otros recuerdos agradables
del Canal de PanamA.


Dijo que habia sido herido durante
la guerra y enviado de regreso a
Australia, done habia vivido desde
entonces. Permaneci6 en el Ejrcito
Australiano, sirvi6 en Australia du-
rante la II Guerra Mundial y se retir6
del servicio en 1951 con el rango de
mayor.
Los esposos Worthington estan
hacienda un viaje alrededor del
mundo a bordo del Orsova, como
miembros de un grupo de 1.000,
denominado Gira Semanal de Des-
cubrimiento del Mundo de la Mujeres
Australianas. Esta es la primera vez
que la Sra. de Worthington sale de
Australia, donde naci6.
La pareja hizo su primer viaje por
el Canal de Panam el viernes y luego
visitaron el sector Atlintico como
invitados del Servicio de Guias del
Canal de PanamA. Uno de los pun-
tos culminantes fue su visit a las Es-
clusas de Gatin, que Worthington
habia visto por primera vez desde la
cubierta de un transport hace tantos
anos.
Dijo que siempre habia deseado
regresar al Canal de Panama, pero
que el viaje a bordo del Orsova era
mans c6modo y agradable que el que
hizo en aquel tiempo a bordo del
transport de tropas.

Cuando alguna pregunta concer-
niente a algin problema de personal

res piensan inmediatamente en acu-
dir a la oficina de personal con el fin
de obtener contestaci6n a preguntas
o problems que sus jefes inmediatos
bien podrian resolver. Los empleados
de la oficina de personal estan a su
disposici6n para servirles. Sin embar-
go, al hacer eso, estan negando a sus
jefes la oportunidad de desempefiar
sus deberes y responsabilidades. Si
usted estA en esta situaci6n, det6n-
gase y piense.
Su jefe inmediato selecciona los
empleados para empleos y ascenso,
asigna las tareas, establece medidas
de trabajo, efectiua la evaluaci6n de
los empleados, recomienda premios
de estimulo e inicia todas aquellas
medidas que afectan a sus emplea-
dos. D6nle la oportunidad de contes-
tar a sus preguntas o de resolver sus
problems. Es muy possible que su
jefe inmediato no pueda siempre con-
testar a sus preguntas; sin embargo,
se le debe dar esa oportunidad. Si
la situaci6n require una respuesta
mis allA de sus conocimientos, l6
podrA obtener la informacidn nece-
