Economy, Work

Federal employees have received
a pat on the back from President
Nixon for thpir high quality of work
and constructive ideas for Govern-
ment economy during fiscal year
In a letter from the White House,
the President said a record was
reached during the year for the
number of awards given employees
for superior work and for sugges-
tions that resulted in reduced costs.
The letter follows.
"In the last fiscal year more em-
ployees than ever before received
awards for their superior work and
for their constructive suggestions to
improve Government operations.
A new record was set by the $195
million in benefits from employee
ideas that saved man-hours, con-
served supplies, and reduced costs.
"These outstanding results could
not have been achieved without
teamwork and extra effort by many
people at many levels of our Fed-
eral organizations. I am delighted
to send a hearty and very personal
"Thank You!" to everyone in Cov-
ernment for their contributions to
this record.
"In many areas of importance to
car citizens, the Government must
carry out new functions and achieve
new or more demanding objectives,
It is crucial that we search con-
stantly for the most economical, the
most efficient, and the most effee-
tive procedures to carry out these
"I deeply appreciate your help
in this effort. I am confident that we
will continue to improve this record
of achievement."

The Canal organization has re-
vamped the system for processing
complaints of discrimination on
grounds of race, color, sex, or
national origin following a revision
of the U.S. Civil Service Commis-
sion's equal employment opportu-
nity regulations.
The new regulations went into
effect November 7 and the follow-
ing steps have already been taken
by the Canal organization:
Gov. W. P. Leber has named
four Equal Employment Opportu-
nity counselors as required by the
new Commission regulations. They
are Sylvester Callencler, community
relations assistant, Office of the
Governor-President; Raymond M.
Murphy, assistant superintendent,
Grounds Maintenance Branch, and
Joseph M. Watson, administrative
officer (personnel), Office of the
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau, on the Pacific side of the
Isthmus. Patricia M. Flores, admin-
istrative officer, Industrial Division,
will serve on the Atlantic side.
The counselors will serve on a
part-time basis, performing this
duty in addition to their regular
work. They have been trained by a
Personnel Bureau employee who
attended a training institute given
by the Civil Service Commission
in New York .
These counselors will handle
complaints of discrimination infor.
mally and will be disassociated from
the formal complaint process. Em-
ployees must consult one of these
counselors before a formal com-
plaint of discrimination may be
Bled against the Canal organization.
When a fonnal complaint of
discrimination is made on the
grounds of race, color, religion,
sex, or national origin, an impartial
investigation of the facts will be

There are 34 days remaining
until Christmas and time enough to
do some serious shopping if you act
now. We haven't been able to cal-
culate the number of shopping days
left, what with some stores closed
on Sundays and others seemingly
opened at the whim of their owners.
At any rate, for those of you
who do your gift buying by catalog,
the Neiman-Marcus Christmas Book
is a must. For a girl you want
to impress, how about 100,000 gal-
lons of Aramis cologne delivered to
her doorstep in a tanker truck for
only $5 million. Or for your wife,
a one-of-a-kind Kojah mink coat for
between $125,000 and $150,000.
For the man of your choice there
are 18-carat gold calling cards at
$1,500 a dozen.
And "what little backyard-Noah
avouldn't absolutely adore his very
own private zoo? asks the fearless
catalog. With a zookeeper for 1 year
the cost is only $13,750 and in-
cludes a pair of North American
burros, New Zealand rabbits, goats
(one billy and one nanny), a pair
of longhair Shetland ponies, and
domestic white ducks.
Probably the most practical gift
from Neiman-Marous, not consider-
ing the useful clear vinyl, on a
leash-handle, dog's umbrella, is a

The satire takes place in the
smallest country in the world, which
has an Army of only two men, and
is run by a delightful unscrupulous
character. The little country be-
comes a diplomatic battleground
between the East and the West.
The play, suitable for the entire
family, becomes a boy-meets-girl
story when the Russian ambassador's
son falls in love with the daughter
of the United States ambassador
and international battles fade when
faced with "true love."
Reservations may be made by

The Panama Canal is putting
ships through the Canal faster these
days. Or so it would seem by the
traffic figures for November 2, when
35 Oceangoing vessels translated the
waterway with an average in-
transit time of 5.5 hours. This is the
time measured from the moment a
ship arrives at the first set of locks
until it departs from the last set of
locks on the other side of he Isth-
mus. On the same day, the average
Canal Zone waters time was 8.9
hours. The Marine Bureau reported
that this was the best time registered
since June 26, 1966, when 30 Ocean-
going ships spent an average of 5.4
hours in transit and 8.3 hours in
Canal waters-still a record for re-
cent high traffic years. The average
time spent in Canal waters in Octo-
ber 1969 was 15.1 hours and the
in-transit time was 7.5 hours.

Gente en la Noticia

Con su tipica sonrisa de persona
complaciente, Wilhelmina Dunn,
T R," jempleada del cuarto de ropa blan-
ca de la Casa de Hu6spedes Tivoli,
atiende siempre a las personas que
requieren sus servicios. Lleva ape-
nas 1 afio y 4 meses de prestar
servicios alli, pero tiene muchos
mais con el Canal de Panama: alre-
dedor de 8 afios de servicio, divi-
didos en un period de 17 afios.
Trabaj6 por primera vez en el
Comisariato de Anc6n, como ven-
dedora. Luego se retire durante
unos afnos y regres6o, esta vez al
SClubhouse de Balboa, en 1954. En
S1958 trabaj6 con el Centro de Ser-
vicios Comunales de Cocoli y, final-
mente, vino a trabajar en la Casa
de Huespedes Tivoli, en 1968. To-



;Peligro! Existen

Avispas Ebrias

Un cirujano ingl6s, Dr. Lawson
Tait, ha descubierto un nuevo
riesgo fuera del trabajo: las pica-
duras de avispas borrachas.
Al parecer la putrefacci6n de las
uvas y ciertas ciruelas convierte el
azicar que contienen en alcohol,
muy al gusto de las avispas que lo
been con fruici6n. Dice el Dr. Tait
que es muy curioso observarlas. Las
avispas se acercan a la fruta des-
comnpuesta y absorben el liquid
precioso hasta quedar henchidas;
despu6s reposan un rato en la hier-
ba para volver a saborear el pre-
cioso nectar. Si algo las sobrecoge,
se toman agresivas y atacan con
gran furia. "Su punzada", dice 61,
es peor que las de las avispas que
no han bebido, por la fuerza con
que impelen el aguij6n y porque
muchas veces el ataque no ha sido
provocado por la victima.

Gran Experiencia Resulta Torneo

De Baloncesto Para Arturo Agard

El II Campeonato Centroameri-
cano v del Caribe de Baloncesto
celebrado recientemente en La
Habana, Cuba, result una gran
experiencia para un empleado de
la Zona del Canal, el policia Arturo
Agard, del sector AtlAntico.
Agard, veteran canastero pana-
menio que estA jugando al balon-
cesto desde 1954, fue seleccionado
por d6cimotercera vez como miem-
bro del seleccionado national de
baloncesto que fue a Cuba a defen-
der el titulo de campe6n Centro-
americano y del Caribe, obtenido
hace 2 afios en San Salvador.
Agard, con 32 afios de edad, es
el jugador de mayor edad en el
combinado panameflo, aunque no el
que mAs anios l1eva actuando en las
canchas. Ese honor lo tiene Julio
Andrade, quien va a cumplir 32
aios dentro de poco y tiene 2 aios
mas que Agard en los cuadros de
Arturo, a quien muchos conocen
comn "Big W 1ende", jug baloncesto
menor en 1954 v 1955, ascendiendo
:i la division mayor en Colon en
1956 v desde entonces ha sido selec-
cionaldo en 13 ocasiones consecu-
tivas para representar a Panama en
competencias internacionales. Ha
visitado 21 paises en la America y
solamente ha dejado de ir al Brasil,
unico pais que no conoce en este
Ha estado en cuatro campeonatos
Ccntroamniericanos, tires Juegos De-
portivos Centroamericanos y del
Caribe-en 1959 en Caracas, Vene-
zuela; en 1962 en Kingston, Jamai-
ca; y en 1966 en San Juan, Puerto
Rico. En 1970 estarA representando
tambi6n a PanamA en los XI
Juegos Centroamericanos y del
El canastero-policia fue tambien
a los Juegos Bolivarianos en Barran-
quilla, Colombia, en 1962; al Cam-
peonato Mundial Extraordinario en
Chile, en 1965; a los Juegos Pan-
amicricanos en Winnipeg, CanadA,
en 1967; v a los Juegos Olimpicos
de Mkxico en 1968.
Primer Viaje a Cuba
Este fue el primer viaje de Agard
a La Hahana y quedo sorprendido
por el estado de cosas en esa capi-
tal, en donde todo estA casi "muer-
to" y no hay movimiento en las
Los fanaiticos se portaron muy
bien con los visitantes panameiios,
tanto en los juegos como en la
calle, por dlonde andaban los canas-
teros sin vigilancia alguna y hacian
visits a las amistades de muchos
anios atras.
Cuenta Agard que la noche en

que PanamA gan6 el campeonato,
venciendo a la Republica Domini-
cana, inientras Cuba caia vencida
ante Puerto Rico en el segundo
desafio de la noche, hliubo un silen-
cio absolute en el Palacio cde los
Deportes, en donde se celebr6 la
just y en donde no se cobraba la
entrada a los juegos, pues de lo
contrario nadie hubiera podido
asistir. Los jugadores cubanos 1lo-
raron esa noche.
Vio a una Tia Suya
UJna de las mayores emociones
de Agard fue el ver a una tia suya,
hermana de sIu madre, que reside
en La Habana hace 45 afnos con
su esposo nicaragiiense Alfredo
James. Ella se llama Andrea Joseph
y es francesa. Tiene 67 aios de
edad y vino al Istmio hace 25 afilos,
cuiiando Arturo era un ninio todavia.
Este la visit todo el tiempo que
fue possible sin que nadie lo vigi-
James es utin porter jubilado del
American Club, en donde todavia
trabaja. Este club tenia 1.000 so-
cios estadounidenses, pero en la
actualidad solamente hay 2 y unos
200 cubanos. James tiene mais de
50 afios de trabajar alli.

Comida Regular
Todas las delegaciones estaban
alojadas en el Hotel Nacional, uno
dle los primeros grandes hotels de
La Habana. Sus habitaciones tie-
nen acondicionamiento de aire y
telefono, pero la comida no es muy
buena, d(lice Agard.
"La comida era regular. En el
desayuno nos servian huevos, ja-
inmn, caf6 y pan. La ultima semana
no nos sirvieron mantequilla por-
que no habia. Alli estuvimnos 15
dias y cuando regresamos a Kings-
ton, Jamaica, de paso para Pana-
ma, nos dimos cuenta de que la
mantequilla allA era much mejor
que la cubana.
"Para el almuerzo y la cena nos
servian filete de came o de pesca-
do, arroz y algunas otras cosas.
Nosotros tomabamos limonada por
agua, ya que el agua no es tan
buena como la nuestra", agrego6
Cupo Para Comer
Para powder comer en un restau-
rante haY qiue solicitar cupo un
dia antes y entonces sefialan la
hora en que se debe acudir al res-
taurante. Agard fue a uno dC esos
restaurants con una familiar cuba-
na amiga, ya que nadie lo invita
uno a su casa, porque no hay nada
que ofrecer.

en esos restaurants, lo mismo que
en los almacenes, en dclonde se com-
pra con libretas de racionamiento,
tanto los alimentos como la ropa.
Cuando a una familiar se le ter-
ininan sus provisions, entonces
toman agua con azuicar y pan.
Muclias veces se come s6lo una vez
al dia.
Caras Tristes
"En las callss, dice Agard,
solo se ven caras tristes y carros
viejos. No hay cubanos alegres
como me contaron que habia antes
por las calls de La Habana. Ya
no existen los restaurants al aire
libre en las anchas aceras frente al
Capitolio y la gente ofrece en pri-
vado hasta 30 pesos cubanos por
una camisa y 70 por un pantal6n.
El d6lar es cambiado a Ia par con
el peso cubano".
Dijo tambi6n el conocido canas-
tero que cuando una persona cam-
bia un billete de $10, por ejemplo,
le dan un recibo por esa cantidad,
con el cual puede comprar en pesos
hasta esa misma suma, es decir,
10 pesos.
Los canasteros panamefios rega-
laron ropa y calzado a los jugadores
cubanos y a panameiios que resi-
den en Cuba, uno de los cuales
result6 ser un ex secretario de la
Federaci6n Panamefla Cde Balon-
"Es infitil Ilevar dinero a Cuba",
d(lice Agard, "porque no hay nada
(Ique comprar. Lo mnico que se
puede comprar son cigarros, ron y
souvenirs en un hotel de la capital".
Esta es la experiencia de Agard
en la capital cubana, que una vez
fue conocida en el mundo como
la capital de la alegria.
Agard estA content por haber
visto a su tia, porque Panama con-
quist6 el campeonato de balon-
cesto y porque tendra tambi6n la
oportunidad de ir al Campeonato
Mundial que tendri lugar en
Yugoeslavia en 1970.
Peralta el mas Destacado
Consider Agard, y en eso todos
estarin de acuerdo, que el peque-
no canastero Davis Peralta fue el
mas destacado, no s6lo del equipo
panaunefio sino de todo el tor-
neo, coronandose campe6n anotador
con 167 puLntos v recibiendo dos
bonitos trofeos por haber sido tam-
biWn el mejor en promedio de tiros
libres y mejor delantero.
Agard elogie el juego de con-
junto del seleccionado panamefino.

Notas Breves

del Canal

El Canal de Panama estAt colo-
cando a los barcos a trav6s del
Canal en forma mAis rApida en estos
dias. Esto se desprende de las cifras
de trAnsito para el 2 de noviembre,
cuando 35 naves de alto bordo tran-
sitaron por la via acuAtica con un
promedio de tiempo de 5.5 horas.
Este es el tiempo tornado desde el
moment en que el barco llega al
primer juego de esclusas hasta que
parte del l61timo juego de esclusas
en el otro lado del Istmo. El mismo
dia, el promedio de tiempo en aguas
I de la Zona del Canal fue de 8.9
horas. La Direcci6n de Marina in-
form6 que este era el mejor tiempo
registrado desde el 26 de junio de
1966, cuando 30 naves de alto bor-
do tuvieron un promedio de trAn-
sito de 5.4 horas y de 8.3 horas en
aguas del Canal-todavia una marca
para afios recientes en maiximo de
trainsito. El promedio de tiempo
pasado en aguias del Canal en octu-
bre de 1969 fuie de 15.1 horas y el
tiempo en trAnsito fue de 7.5 horas.
