Rule Liberalized

On Shipping Cars

Regulations governing the trans-
portation of privately-owned vehicles
at Panama Canal expense have been
liberalized to allow employees to ship
their cars free at any time they are
Under the new ruling permanent
employees of the Panama Canal who
are entitled to recruitment, home
leave, and repatriation benefits and
who are heads of households are en-
titled to free transportation of their
cars on the SS Cristobal for an initial
or replacement vehicle.
The term "initial motor vehicle"
refers to the first car shipped at
Government expense. The term "re-
placement vehicle" refers to a car
which is authorized to be shipped,
every 4 years, as a replacement
of an initial vehicle or of a previous
Employees also may be reimbursed
for the shipment of a replacement
vehicle shipped on or after October
12, 1966, provided they were eligible
at the time of shipment. Previously,
employees were eligible for free
transportation of vehicles only if
they applied in advance of shipment
and the vehicles were shipped within
1 year of their home leave travel.
Cars shipped as replacements may
not have been in the possession of

BHS Play


On Sale

Tickets are now on sale and reserva-
tions may be made for Shakespeare's
A Midsummer Night's Dream, a pro-
duction of the Balboa High School
Drama Department to be presented
at the high school auditorium April 16
through 19.
The theme of the well-known clas-
sic is the fickleness of young love and
the silliness of the courting customs-
a theme which is capable of being
related to the modern teenager's ex-
periences. The plot is fast moving and
the three levels of the play provide
variety. The workmen are rough,
earthy men who provide most cf the
comedy; the courtiers take care of
the love theme, and the sprites create
the airy fantasy.
A talented group of Balboa High
School actors make up the cast of the
"festival" play which has been 3 years
in designing and 1 year in production.
Among the leads are Stella Trem-
blay, who has played such roles as
Hellen Keller in "The Miracle Work-
er" and Shirley in "Dino"; Ada
Beechner, who won the Balboa High
School best actress award last year;
and Marsha Makibbin, who played
leads in "Firstborn," "Dino," and
"The Mousetrap."
Male stars are Bill Hesters and
Lonny Johnston, who won popularity
in "The Mousetrap"; Jim Latimer,
who played the leads in "Firstborn"
and "Dino"; and Eddie Lee, who was
the young Egyptian prince in "First-
born." Jerry Harvey, David Poock,
Mike Senzer (one of the lovers) do
a great job in this Shakespearean

the employee or his immediate family
on the Isthmus. This means that an
employee who takes his car with him
on leave is not eligible to return that
same vehicle to the Isthmus under
the free transportation provisions,
unless it is an initial vehicle.
Form 79, "Request and Authoriza-
tion for Transportation cf Privately-
Owned Vehicle," available in all divi-
sions, must be used by employees in
applying for the shipment of an ini-
tial or replacement vehicle. This form
may also be used by employees apply-
ing for reimbursement under the
above provision. For further informa-

5th Draft



Due to the decline in the level of
Gatun Lake, the maximum draft
allowance for vessels using the Pan-
ama Canal will be reduced again
April 20 by another 6 inches, bring-
ing it to 37 feet 6 inches, it has been
announced by the Chief of Naviga-
tion Division.
The previous reduction in maxi-
mum draft allowance was made last
week and became effective April 9.
At this time it was lowered from 38
feet 6 inches to 38 feet. The reduc-
tion to be effective April 20 will be
the fifth since the dry season began.
Since the last of December 1968,
when the level of Gatun Lake rose
to 87.33 feet, the water level has
dropped to 85 feet and is continuing
to go down on an average of .03 of
a foot a day. This situation is ex-
pected to continue until the rains
begin, possibly early in May.

A letter of commendation has been
sent by Gov. W. P. Leber to the
chiefs and personnel of the various
divisions engaged in the recent Pedro
Miguel Locks overhaul.
Governor Leber pointed out in the
letter that the overhaul was com-
pleted ahead of schedule on March
23, 1969.
"Field work," he said, "during
which a lane was out of service, took
only 7 weeks; however, this was
preceded by many months of pains-
taking preparatory work by many
Panama Canal divisions.
"I wish to comunend you and all
those of your division who partici-
pated in the successful planning and
accomplishment of this important
A copy of the letter was sent to
M. B. Nickel, Chief of the Indus-
trial Division; H. W. Osborn, Main-
tenance Engineer; J. S. Hearne,
Chief of the Dredging Division; E.
W. Zelnick, Designing Engineer;
T. H-. Hoenke, Chief of the Locks
Division; and Capt. E. B. Rainier,
Acting Chief of the Navigation
Work which started early in Feb-
ruary at Pedro Miguel, included the
installation of lateral culvert bulk-
head slots in both the east and west
lanes. The slots are designed to
accommodate steel bulkheads to be
fitted whenever center or sidewall
culvert or valve repairs become
necessary in the future.

It's That Time Again

Teetering as tax time tightens, R. B. "Bo" Mathews of the Agents Accounts
Branch equips himself with cigarette, adding machine and tax books as he
begins to make out his 1969 Federal income tax form-an annual ceremony
performed by U.S. natives. Deadline to file is April 15. Canal Zone residents,
however, may delay filing until June 15 without penalties, but must pay an
additional 1% percent on what is owed for each month past the deadline.

E ployees Cautioned

Employees Cautioned

To Pay Their Debts

As a U.S. Government employee
working for the Panama Canal organ-
ization your actions are clearly visi-
ble in a "goldfish bowl" of public
responsibility. Your actions reflect for
good or ill on the Canal Zone and the
Canal organization.
Ordinarily, the Canal organization
is not concerned with what you do
with your paycheck. How much of
it you spend and how much you obli-
gate are your personal business-un-
less you let your financial affairs get
out of hand and they become a
burden to your employer. If that
should happen, there is a good chance
the Canal organization would become
Panama Canal organization policy
on employee debts is identical to that
of the U.S. Government and is stated
as follows: An employee shall pay
each just financial obligation in a
proper and timely manner ."
A "just financial obligation" means
one which is rightfully yours to pay.
It can be taxes, or a bill you admit
you owe, or one which a court has
judged you bound to pay. Failure to
meet just obligations after being offi-
cially directed to do so can result in
disciplinary action, possibly even re-
moval from the service.
What if you claim that a debt is
unjust-for example, if merchandise
was not delivered as promised or if
the debt was based on an illegal con-
tract? Will your employer intervene
on behalf of a creditor in this in-
stance? The answer is no. Only if you
acknowledge indebtedness or your
creditor's claim has been reduced to
judgment by a court of competent
jurisdiction will the Canal organiza-
tion involve itself in your financial
affairs. Any dispute over the validity

or amount of a debt must be settled
in court.
There is one factor that has an im-
portant bearing on U.S. Government
employee debt policy. If you were
employed by an employer other than
the U.S. Government, your salary
could be garnished for nonpayment
of debt-that is, a portion of your
wages could be assigned to your cred-
itors by a court.
However, as an employee of the
U.S. Government your salary is not
subject to garnishment. But this does
not mean you can use this immunity
as a shield to avoid payment of just
debts. On the contrary, this fact
places a special obligation on you to
pay your bills.
Additional information concerning
employee debt problems can be ob-
tained by visiting the Personnel Bu-
reau's Debt Counselor in Building
366, Ancon, C.Z. and Building 1004,
Cristobal, C.Z. or telephoning them
at 2-1234 or 3-2118.

Forty children from the village of
San Jose in the Interior of Panama
will long remember this Easter sea-
son. The children, ranging from 6 to
10 years of age, were guests of the
Future Teachers of America Club of
Balboa High School who entertained
them with a full day of activities.
The children, accompanied by five
adults from their village and mem-
bers of the Future Teachers of Amer-
ica Club, toured several Balboa High
School classrooms, visited Miraflores
Locks, made a partial transit of the
Canal on the launch Las Cruces and
then enjoyed a picnic lunch and egg
hunt at Summit Gardens.
After lunch, which was prepared
by the club members, the children
were entertained with a story about



the Easter bunny and were delighted
when a real live "bunny," played by
Gail Goodrich dressed like Susie Cot-
tontail, came onto the scene. Wide-
eyed, the children listened to Sara
Rodriguez who related to them the
story of Easter. There were "ohs"
and "ahs" when she illustrated her
story by opening a plastic egg to
reveal a small fluffy chicken.
After relay races and toss games,
the children had a great time hunting
for Easter baskets and eggs which
had been hidden in the picnic area of
The children were presented two
Spanish story books each and books

A big welcome back to myself after
being on safari in the dense wilds of
the Central American jungles for
almost 3 weeks. It was all somewhat
exciting since we had narrow escapes
from the new types of beasts we dis-
covered in those remote areas, such
as the Speedibus Idioticus, a weird
animal that tries to beat you to nar-
row one-way bridges when you are
traveling in the opposite direction at
60 miles an hour. But perhaps the
strangest species we ran across was
the Touristi Americanus. This one not
only sports a ludicrous outer covering
most of the season, but carries a pam-
phlet which contains 4,983 ways to
ask: "Where is the American Consul?"
and "Is the water safe to drink?". As

Here Are Safety Tips

For Cristobal Cruise

Normally, the voyage between
New Orleans and Cristobal is a
peaceful one with calm seas and gen-
tle winds and as a result, passengers
tend to forget certain precautionary
measures that are necessary for their
safety at sea.

I~. .. ks.

~,~P~ i;'....1.:

But everyone who travels on the
SS Cristobal should always be pre-
pared for an unexpected roll of the
ship which can send unsecured
items crashing to the deck, breaking
glass, and perhaps causing injury to
A few precautionary measures
which will help toward an accident-
free voyage are listed below:
1. Make certain that drawers and
doors are securely closed or latched.
2. Upon retiring, place vases and
all containers that won't fit in the
drawers on the deck in an out-of-the-
way place.
3. Make certain that ladders used
for upper bunks are safety secured
to the upper bunk.
4. The proper use of bath mats will
aid greatly in reducing slippery decks
in bathrooms.
5. Take advantage of the hand
holds in the showers.
Passengers will find a pyramid-
shaped card in their staterooms con-
taining information which will be of
great help to them while on board
the vessel. It is strongly recommended
that these cards be read, and the ob-
servance of these simple rules will
help assure a safe and pleasant voy-
age aboard the SS Cristobal.

CZ. Library-Museum Has

A New Bottle Collection

A collection of old bottles owned
by Charles and Lois Harrison of Los
Rios is now on display at the Canal
Zone Library-Museum. It replaced
a display of bottles belonging to
James P. McLaren.
The Harrisons, who are members
of ABCA, Antique Bottle Collectors
Association of Sacramento, Calif., are
exhibiting a small number of their
large collection of interesting, old
bottles. The display includes an as-
sortment of medicines, fo:ds, minia-
tures, Taboga black glass, blue bot-
tles, "dog" bottles, square gins, soda
pops, clays and a "vase" bottle
from the Las Cruces trail.
A number of the bottles, some of
them dating back more than a 100
years, originated in England, Ireland,
and Germany. The Taboga blacks,
always favorites with collectors, came
from England via the Pacific Steam
Navigation Co. which established a
ship repair facility on Morro Island,

near Taboga, in 1847.. Most of these
bottles once contained brandy, wine,
ale, ginger beer, soda pop, and other
beverages. The wide-mouthed clay
jugs contained food products.
The dog bottle with an embossed
pointer holding a bird in its mouth
came from Germany. These contained
gin, whiskey, and possibly wine that
was traded between continents dur-
ing the later part of the 19th
The "tear drop" bottles, used for
soda pop and often used as ballast
in ships from England and Scotland,
originated in London in 1832. Of
special interest, also, are the round
bottomed bottles from Ireland, both
of these designed to lay down so the
cork would be kept wet. If the cork
dried out, it popped!
One of the oldest specimens is the
Niagara bottle which contained soda
water, lemonade, and other sweet-
ened carbonated beverages. It has a
marble in its pinched top to let out
a jigger at a time and was developed
in England in 1860. One of these
bottles has Bocas del Toro on it and
was made later at a bottle factory
The development of the metal
crown cap in 1892 succeeded the
Niagara bottle. A few years later,
semi-automatic machines came into

Political Oficial Sobre

Las Deudas de Empleados

Los empleados del Gobierno de los
Estados Unidos que trabajan para la
empresa del Canal de Panama estin
en una posici6n singular. Con sus
actuaciones a la vista de tcdos en
este "puente del mundo", su com-
portamiento, para bien o para mal,
se refleja sobre la Zona del Canal y
sobre la empresa misma. De alli que
su comportamiento, en todos los
aspects, cobre especial importancia.
Uno de estcs aspects es el de sus
obligaciones pecuniarias.
Generalmente, la empresa del
Canal no se interest en lo que ousted
hace con su cheque. Cuanto gasta y
cuanto debe es algo personal, a menos
que sus asuntos econmnicos se com-
pliquen en tal forma que se convier-
tan en una carga para su patron.
Si 6sto ocurre, es muy probable que
la empresa del Canal se interest en
el asunto.
La political de la empresa del Canal
de PanamA en cuanto a las deudas de
sus empleados es la misma que la del
Cobierno de los Estados Unidos y se
express de la siguiente manera: "Un
empleado debera pagar cada una de
sus deudas legitimas a tiempo y de
manera adecuada . ." (C6digo de
Reglamentos Federales. Titulo 35,
Secci6n 255.735.36)
Una "deuda legitima" es una que,
de acuerdo con el derecho, delbe
pagarse. Pueden ser impuestcs, una
cuenta que usted acepta u otra deu-
da que un juzgado le haya ordenado
pagar. El no cumplir con deudas
contraidas despuos que se le lia
ordenado oficialmente q:ue lo haga
puede ser causa de que se tomen
medidas disciplinarias en su contra,
posiblemente hasta la destituci6n.
Y, dsi usted reclamara que tuna
deuda no es legitima? Por ejemplo,
si cierta mercancia no fue entregada
seg6n lo acordado o si la deuda tienc
como base un contrato illegal? En un
caso como Aste, dintervendril su pa-

tronc a favor de un acreedor? La
respuesta es no. La empresa del Canal
intervendrA en sus asuntos economi-
cos sblo si usted acepta la deuda o si

le gusta de Chitr6, su pueblo natal, \
contest enseguida: "Chitrd". Es fi..
nitica dcl beisbol y especialmente Ic
encantan las competencias interpro.
vinciales de ese deported. "Sobre todo.
el Gran Clisico de Azuero", dice con
entusiasmo y agrega: "parcce que lo,
santefios ya perdieron las esperanzdi
de ganarnos a los herreranos". Le gu,.
ta much el cine, especialmente l.,i
peliculas detectivescas y de espio-
naje. Uno de sus mayores anhelos es
viajar a Sur AmBrica, especialmente
al Peri. Esti encantada con su ex-
periencia como ayudante estudiantil
en la Contaduria. Dice que no se
imaginaba la cantidad de panamefos
que trabajan alli. "Me siento como
en mi casa", es su expresi6n final.

Resguardos Para su Protecci6n

Protectores, tapas, defenses, resguardos . todos tienen algo en comun:
sirven para proteger contra dafios, averias, accidents.
Si usted tiene un pozo en el patio, le pone una tapa para que las basuras
no contaminen el agua y evitar que alguien pueda caerse en el mismo. Es un
resguardo. Si hay un nifio en la casa, coloca barrotes en las ventanas para
protegerlo contra una caida. Los barrotes son resguardos tambi(n.
En el taller, se ponen resguardos en las mAquinas para proteger a los tra-
bajadores contra la "fuerza destructora" de las maquinas. Cualquier parte
mrvil puede producer lesiones graves cuando alguien inadvertidamente se
pone en contact con la misma. Es un pulpo que devora cualquier presa.
Estos resguardos son tambien puntos de acceso para limpiar, aceitar, ins-
peccionar y reparar las maquinas. Si hay que hacer cualquiera de estos traba-
jos, antes que nada se para la miquina, despues se desconecta y por ultimo
se quita el resguardo. Pero, hecho el trabajo, hay que repetir la misma ope-
raci6n a la inversa. Los resguardos deben mantenerse puestos siempre que
funcione la maquina. Es su garantia de que no se producirAn accidents.
Hay quienes consideran que tomar precauciones es una flaqueza. Todo lo
contrario, quien se protege y se preocupa por proteger a los demis, demues-
tra buen juicio y superioridad. Es mejor dominar la maquina que dejar que
ella lo haga su victim. Por eso, dominela, protegiendose contra ella, usando
los resguardos y cumpliendo siempre las reglas de seguridad.

Guia del Canal de Panama Cuenta sus

Impresiones al Subir al Volcan Baru

Jurgen Mossack con su vestimenta de alpinista bavaro, que incluye pantalones
de cuero de gamuza, sumamente fuerte para que no se rompan con las inevi-
tables caidas que frecuentemente tienen los que gustan del viril deported de
ascender empinadas montailas. Jurgen, ademAs de trabajar con el Servicio de
Guias de la Zona del Canal, estudia Derecho en la Universidad Santa Maria
La Antigua, en PanamA.

"Sentia un frio espantoso dentro
de mi saco de dormir. A las 11 p.m.
mir6 el reloj y luego el term6metro.
Marcaba 14' Fahrenheit".
Asi se expresaba Jurgen Mossack,
Guia de la Zona del Canal, al contar
sus experiencias en la cumbre del
VolcAn Bari, que con 3.434 metros
de altura, es la montaia mais alta de
la Repdblica de PanamA.
Y no es de extrafiar que Jurgen se
resistiese a career que se encontraba
en tierra panamefia, pues esa tem-
peratura estA a 100 Centigrados bajo
el punto de congelaci6n del agua, lo
cual no es usual en esta tierra tropical.
Alpinista Nato
Jurgen Mossack es alpinista p::r
naturaleza-naci6 hace 21 afios en
la region de Baviera, en Alemania,
donde abundan las altas montafias.
Vino a PanamA con su familiar hace
unos 8 afios y desde que vi6 el
VolcAn Bard por primera vez, sinti6
un deseo irresistible de Ilegar a la
cumbre. Cumpli6 su anhelo el 18 de
marzo, a las 4:15 p.m., luego de una
ascension de 8 horas 15 minutes,
desde la base del pico, situada a unos
1.400 metros sobre el nivel del mar.
Jurgen habia llegado cl dia anterior
al chalet estilo suizo que posee el
Sr. Kurt Hemmerling antiguo resi-
dente del lugar, en Bambito, sitio
muy cercano a las estribaciones del
Bard. Alli pas6 la noche y a la ma-
drugada siguiente, acompafiado de
"Villo", un pe6n de Hemmerling, y
del guia, Federico Ponce, sali6 en
su Volkswagen por un camino bastan-
te malo, hasta llegar a la base de la
empinada montafia.
Diversa Vegetaci6n
A las 7 a.m., iniciaron el ascenso.
"La floresta, a pesar de que los
arboles son diferentes, se parece mu-
cho a la europea, por la ausencia de
malezas", comenta Jurgen. Cuenta
que los Arboles son altisimos, de unos
50 pies los mas pequefios, y cubiertos
de musgo. Pero la primera parte de
la ascension, en el lugar conocido
como "Valle Verde", se hace por un
Area de unas 5 millas cuadradas bas-
tante despejada, donde lo inico que
se encuentra son numerosos cactos
de hojas muy gruesas y de poca
La verdadera ascension comienza

al terminal el Area de los cactos y se
entra en la floresta que se extiende
hasta unos 2.000 metros sobre el nivel
del mar, donde disminuye much el
tamafio de los Arboles hasta llegar
aproximadamente a los 3.000 metros
de altura. Despubs solo hay uno que
otro arbusto de poco tanmaio, tambi6n
cubiertos por el musgo. A mitad de
la subida, en un lugar conocide como
"El Chorro", hay un pozo donde
Jurgen y sus acompafiantes llenaron
sus cantimploras. "Y hay que hacer-
lo", dice "porque en el resto de la
ascension no se encuentia gota de
agua. La de El Chorro tiene un sabor
raro, pero es muy buena par quitar
la sed".
Ni PAjaros Habia
A las 4:15 p.m. llegaron a la cum-
bre del volcAn. "El silencio es im-
presionante", dice Mossack, "lo unico
que se escucha es el ulular del viento,
que por la noche alcanza a mas de
40 millas por hora y el ruido de unas
enormes moscas, que son los 6niccs
insects que se encuentran alli". La
ascensi6n fue sumamente penosa y
dura; les habia llevado 9 horas y 15
minutes, contando la hora que des-
cansaron en El Chorro.
"Pero el especticulo que contem-
plamoas desde la cumbre valia la
pcna", dice Mossack. "No pudimos
ver los dos mares debido a que habia
muchas nubes, pero si se veia muy
bien las ciudades de David, Boquete
y Concepci6n, y la poblaci6n de Vol-
can, a nuestros pies. Apenas anoche-
ci6, hicimos sefias con nuestras lin-
ternas, en direcci6n a Paso Ancho,
donde habiamos convenido que nos
estaria observando Henmmerling, para
saber que habiamos Ilegado a la cum-
bre. Nos contest con los faroles de
su autom6vil.
Al dia siguiente, despu6s de haber
pasado una de las noches mas frias
de su vida, en la cumbre del VolcAn
Bard, Mossack y sus dos acompafian-
tes empezaron el descenso a las 8
a.m. Fue, como sucede siempre en las
montaiias, much mAs duro el des-
censo que la subida. "Los pies me
dolian horriblemente", dice Mossack
"y hubo mementos en que creia que
no podria continuar, pero hice de
tripas coraz6n y a las 2 p.m. esti-
bamos en la base del pico y junto a
mi autom6vil.

Lavas Muy Antiguas
Jurgen dice que se nota a primera
vista que la ltima vez que el Bari
hizo erupci6n fue hace muchisimo
ailos. En primer lugar, el crAter ya
ha desaparecido. En las laderas del
Barn, seg6n le cont6 Hemmerling, se
encuentran dos capas de lava y ceni-
za volcanica. La superior, segin estu-
dics hechos en la Universidad Kroing,
en Holanda, debi6 haber salido del
volcan hace unos 2.000 alios. Debajo
de esa capa de lava se encuentran
muchos articulos fabricados por los
indios de PanamA. Pero todavia mis
abajo, existe otra capa de lava que
segin los estudics sali6 del volcin
otros 2.000 afios antes. Debajo de esa
capa tambien se encuentran articulos
manufacturados por los aborigenes,
por lo que se deduce que la civili-
zaci6n indigena de Panami comenz6
hace mas de 4.000 afios.

El Instinto de Natura
Seg6n le cont6 Hemmerling a
Mossack, soldados del ej6rcito de
Estados Unidos fueron los primeros
en subir a la cumbre del Bar6, alli
por 1940. Como no habia camino y
tenian que Ilevar much impedimen-
ta, tardaban 24 dias en Ilegar a la
cumbre. Luego de muchos de esos
viajes, encontraron por casualidad
una trocha hecha por los tapires o
machoss de monte" como los llaman
en PanamA. La trocha de los tapires,
pasaba por el niico paso, o "port6n"
como lo llaman en la region, que da
acceso relativamente fAcil al pico.
Siguieron la trocha de los tapires y
subieron a la cumbre en 8 horas, que
es el tiempo que Ileva actualmente.
Dice Mossack que en ]a cumbre,
a excepci6n de pequefias formaciones
de azufre cristalizado, no se encuen-
tran otros minerales.
Mossack, reside en la Urbanizaci6n
Las Cumbres de la ciudad de PanamA
y es hijo de Peter E. Mossack, Geren-
te de la linea de aviaci6n Lufthansa
en PanamA, Director de la Oficina de
Prensa Alemana para Centro Am6ri-
ca y el Caribe, y president de la
Uni6n Alemana de Exportaci6n,
S.A., de la Zona Libre de Col6n.

La produccion de cobre de Chile
correspondiente a la primer mitad
de 1967 fue de 323.377 toneladas
metricas, y bastante mayor en con-
secuencia a la cifra correspondiente
al mismo period de 1966, la cual
fue de 276.449. Los embarques fue-
ron de 319.173 toneladas metricas;

mente sorprendidos cuando una ver-
dadera "conejita", ;epresentada por

siones, los niios gozaron de lo lindo

cua Florida que habian sido escon-
