the addition of a washer-dryer and
a small ironing room would add
much to the comfort and conveni-
once of the passengers during the
5-day trip.
Also concerning the Cristobal was
a discussion about the shipment of
replacements for privately owned
cars. There seems to be much con-
fusion concerning the regulations
and the Governor said that the
matter would be checked into and
clarified. He pointed out that the
regulations come from Washington,
Mrs. Doris Sanders, president,
Cristobal, Margarita, and Brazos
Heights, mentioned the lack of any
freight forwarding facilities at the
New Orleans piers and suggested
that something be done to correct
the situation. She also suggested a
surgical ward for women at the
Coco Solo Hospital and gave a
sketch of the proposal to the Gov-
ernor showing how one third of the
men's surgical ward could be used
for this purpose.
The parking problem in Gatun
was brought up by Mrs. Mary Fall,
president, Gatun Civic Council, who
suggested as a possible solution the
paying of the areas between the
houses. She noted that the problem
has gotten worse now that no cam-
pers or boats are allowed on the
grass. She also asked if more
benches could be installed at the
Catun Railroad Station which now
has only one bench.
Dr. Teddy Arias, 1st vice pres-
ident, Pacific Civic Council, com-

Discussions of oil pollution and
the anticipated problems of sewage
disposal as the population increases
highlighted the recent executive
session of the U.S. Civic Councils.
Cov. W. P. Leber presided over
the session which was attended by
Lt. Cov. R. S. Hartline and F. R.
Johnson, assistant chief, Executive
Planning Staff.
Mrs. Majel Reinheimer, represen-
tative of Cristobal, Margarita, and
Brazos Heights, brought up the
question of oil pollution and stated
that the problem has not been
solved. The Governor agreed that
the complete answer has not been
found but that regulations concern-
ing spillage by vessels in Canal
waters are being strictly enforced
and that a number of methods of
control are being tried.
He noted that oil pollution con-
trol has been under intensive con-
tinuous study for the past few years.
The Marine Bureau has purchased
an oil boom, chemicals, pumps, and
spraying equipment and a ton of
straw for final cleanup. For routine
harbor cleanup, a skimmer device
was ordered. Johnson said that this
device is now installed at Cristabal
Harbor.
The Governor pointed out that
when the oil spillage accumulates
in open areas, a spray boom launch,
which was rigged under the direc-
tion of the Cristobal Port Captain,
is used to spray the oil with disper-
sant chemicals. A local company
has stocked 100 barrels of this chem-
ical. The whole operation will cost
about $6,500 per month but its suc-
cess is not yet proven.
Mrs. Reinheimer said that she
had seen the experiment conducted
with the use of straw an it ap-
peared effective but Governor Leber
added that the decision on the use
of straw would be determined on
the feasibility, the costs, and the
ability to retrieve and dispose of
the oil-soaked straw.
Questions concerning the dis-
posal of sewage in the Canal Zone
were asked by Mrs. Reinheimer.
The Governor said that water flow
in the Canal and tides have helped
to keep the problem under control
and constant surveillance is main-
tained but that with the population
increase, additional measures are
bei studied.t He notalidthatd t

the formulating of future plans as
the population growth increases the
possibility of the pollution of
beaches and fishing areas.
Suggestions concerning the im-
proving of facilities aboard the
SS Cristobal were offered by Doug-
las Schmidt, 2d vice president, Pa-
cific Civic Council, and Mrs. Rein-
heimer. Schmidt said passengers
with infants or small children are
often assigned rooms with showers
but with no facilities for bathing
children. He suggested that small
plastic bathtubs be purchased and
kept aboard the ship for this pur-
pose, and that folding playpens and
highchairs with trays be placed
aboard the ship for those who need
them.
Mrs. Reinheimer mentioned that


Theyea tat is enrabe Frdtouingca wa bult Curundu Protestant Church, by Michael Zombory,


Some people have trouble keep-
ing their 1970 super special deluxe
model car in running condition-but
Dr. Robert L. Hubbard, new pastor
of the Curundu Protestant Church,
has an automobile build in 1915
that runs like a top.
It is a Ford T model touring car
of the t e that was produced by
the hundreds of thousands between
the years 1909 and 1927. To anyone
who ever owned one of Henry
Ford's famous early products, its
good behavior comes as no surprise-
Purring like a kitten, the bright
fellow classic Ford arrived at the
dBalboa License Section recently,
piloted by its proud owner and fol-
lowed by an entourage of classic
car buffs.
While passersby stood by in ad-
iniration, Michael Zombory, Chief
of the License Section, and some of
his staff, presented Dr. Hubbard
-
1970 license plate No. 1915 m honor
of the year that the car came off
Henry Ford's assembly line. The
Ford is the oldest automobile in


service registered in the Canal Zone.
In answer to the question whether
the car could meet inspection stand-
ards, Dr. Hubbard quoted a regula-
tion that it must be equipped with
whatever was standard during the
year of production. Except for a top,
this Ford has everything a 1915 tin
Lizzie is supposed to have.
Dr. Hubbard admitted that the
original engine had been replaced
by a former owner with a relatively
new 1927 edition having a self
starting mechanism. Also a gear
was added to help four-cylinder
lizzie climb hills. But otherwise she
is the same as she was 55 years ago
-with wooden spoke wheels, tires
measuring 30 by 3 inches and a
bright brass engine cowling. Her
hood, fenders, and remning boards
are made of tin.
D H bb d h 'll

isn t selling.
The car was purchased in Cal-
ifornia from a young man who was
turning Lizzie in for a Thunder-
bird. A classic car admirer for many
years, Dr. Hubbard said that this
was the first one he had owned. He
is now a member of the Horseless
Carriage Club, California Division.
He didn't have to do much to
n ,,
Ins new old car which came
equipped with most of its original
tools and the standard gas tank
located under the front seat. The
former owner had installed new
upholstering.
Dr. and Mrs. Hubbard make
regular use of the Ford as a second
car. And he has gotten used to such
questions as "Did you buy it new
at the factory?"


prefix code for calls from outside
the immediate hospital area will be
changed from 34 to 32. The hos-
pital PABX 200 series numbers will
be changed to 600 series numbers.
A hospital number dialed from out-
side the hospital area will be 32-6xx
instead of 34 and the last two digits
of the telephone number.
These changes will bring these
areas more in line with the proposed
Panama Canal Company telephone
numbering plan which will go into
effect upon completion of the new
Balboa telephone exchange.


The new Panama Canal Com-
pany 1970 Telephone Directory
which will be distributed beginning
December 29, will contain some
numbering changes, which will
become effective January 1.
A digit is being eliminated from
the Gatun Locks PABX prefix code
and all of the 200 series ntunbers
will be changed to 700 and the 300
series numbers will be changed to
800. Under the new plan 5-7xx and
5-8xx will be dialed instead of
58-2xx and 58-3xx to reach Catun
Locks.

long-time friends from Balboa, chat in Vietnam where they met recently.
Parsons, the commanding oncer of the 25th Public Information Detach-

Get ready to mothball your um-
brella and reflect a bit on dry after-
noon golf games and rainless days
at the beach. The dry season is
almost u on us. Not that we will
not have a few light showers or so
during the next few weeks, that

north and when the Pacific Ocean
cools, you can be sure the season

Jolly well done, and all that.
The Romans and the Japanese
with their community bathing tried
to get something going within their
mixed bathing set. But they over-
did it. Bathing with the entire fam-
ily, and even friends, can be a
bloody bore. The kids are always
splashing around and some neighbor
will bring a detestably smelling
soap. Nothing could be worse. What
the English did waas only to intro-
duce an element of order in mixed
bathing.
On launching (so to speak) the
twin bath, designer Wallace Cos-
lett said "when I mentioned among
my friends that I was going ahead
with the idea of a double hath they
lowered their voices, looked around,
and said, 'To tell you ihe truth, e.h1
boy, my wife and I always bathe

Goslett even accounted for puri-
n sepa en n in h

a divider down the middle. This can
be used for champagne bottles and
glasses, caviar, which always goes
nice with champagne, and a small
FM radio (to keep down the com-
mercials). The divider can also be
used to place soap upon, if you are
so inclined.

evening around 7:30, although
you're supposed to be able to make
them from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and then
from 7 to 9 p.m.
We know the show is worth see-
ing for at least two of the three acts.
We had to leave before the third
act because according to the pro-
gram you are not allowed to smoke
or have bottles in the theatre. The
hectic mad rush to get to the near-

was to wait for the night freight to

Alcohol, even when it is abused,
is compatible with a considerable
period of productivity. This is not
necessarily true of marijuana whose
action is far more rapid. It rapidly
interferes with social and economic
productivity. It is especially prone
to interfere with a youngster s drive
in his effort to succeed in school.
His grades quickly fall off as there
is a regression of his desire to
achieve.
Most marijuana smokers have a
false sense of ability and the con-
sequences can be serious. Young~
sters on pot will drive a car feeling
that they have no impairment of
their ability to do so. Drunks fre-
quently are aware that they can't
handle such tasks and won't attempt
them.
For many, however, marijuana is
most harmful as the teacher of drug
abuse-an introductory course in
the pleasures and pitfalls of depend-
ence where the pleasures are not
nearly so great as promised and the
pitfalls are more than just minor.

beautify the area. He also suggested
that now that the wearing of hel-
mets by the operators of motor-
cycles and scooters seems to be re-
quired in Panama and on military
reservations the Canal Zone also
should require it. He mentioned
that three boys were picked up re~
cently in the San Carlos area by
the Panama National Guard because
they were not wearing helmets and
were not allowed to ride their
motorcycles back to the Canal Zone.
A telephone repairman available
on a 24-hour basis, Sundays and

Darleen Ashby, president, Pacific
Civic Council, who added that the
Canal Zone telephone service is far
from satisfactory. Governor Leber
stated that the telephone service is

Marijuana probably is abused by
youth more than any other drug.
The plant is easily grown in so many
parts of the world that it is avail-
able at an extremely low price-a
price that fits the pocketbook of
teenagers.
Smoking marijuana or pot pro-
duces feelings of well being but also
produces sensory distortions. These
effects are much less intense than
those produced by LSD but are
similar in kind. Marijuana's chief
danger is that the user, having tired
of these milder effects, may then
try stronger substances including
heroin and others,
Althou h marijuana does not in-
evitably lead to hard drug abuse,
it is a known fact that most heroin
abusers have first experimented with
marijuana. Traditionally, they have
been introduced to both drugs
through friends or other contacts in
the "hard drug" culture,
The problem in the Canal Zone
is a broad one. Pot parties occur
among certain groups of high school
students and some college young-
sters. For them, smoking marijuana
has become the "in" thing to do.
It carries with it the excitement of
doing something illegal and the sa-
tisfaction of rebelling against the
establishment or parental authority.
Fortunately, most youngsters who
try pot give it up after the novelty
wears off. They realize that the
kicks they get aren't worth the risks
or the side effects. A sizeable group,
however, are discontented with
what they experience. They want
and expect ever-increasing pleasur-
able effects. As a result, some of
them may turn to heroin and others
to hallucigens like LSD.
Proponents of marijuana contend
the drug is less harmful than alco-
hol and that therefore it should be
legalized. They overlook or choose
to ignore important differences
between over-dependence on al-
cohol and over-dependence on pot.
Most people do not take alcohol to
the point of intoxication. One or
two drinks a day normally have
little effect. On the other hand, one
or two reefers can produce mari-
juana intoxication.

Algunas personas pasan trabajo
para mantener en condiciones sus
autos model 1970 super especia-
les de lujo. Pero el Dr. Robert L.
Hubbard, pastor de la Iglesia Pro-
testante de Curund6, tiene un auto
de 1915 que anda como el mejor.
Es un Ford model T, de turis-
mo, del tipo que fue production por
cientos de miles entre los afios de
1909 y 1927. Para cualquiera que
haya sido duefio de uno de los pri-
meros famosos products de Henry
Ford, su buen comportamiento no
es sorprendente.
Ronroneando como un gatito, el
clAsico Ford, de color amarillo bri-
11ante, 11eg6 recientemente a la
Secei6n de Licencias de Balboa, pi-
loteado por su orgulloso duefio y
seguido por admiradores de los
carrots de esa clase.
Mientras los transedutes se dete-
nian admirados, Michael Zombory,
Jefe de la Secei6n de Licencias, y
algunos empleados de su personal,
entregaron al Dr. Hubbard su placa
de 1970 n6mero 1915 en honor del
afio en que sali6 el auto de la fibri-
ca de Henry Ford. El Ford es el
autom6vil mis viejo en servicio re-
gistrado en la Zona del Canal.
Al contester una pregunta sobre
si el autom6vil podia pasar la revis-
ta, el Dr. Hubbard sefial6 una re-
gla n ci n ee e

durante el afio de su producci6n.

nd ec o 1 q p aLies
de hojalata de 1915 debia tener.
El Dr. Hubbard admiti6 que el
motor original habia sido reempla-
zado, por un duefio anterior, con
una edici6n relativamente nueva de
1927 con un mechanism de arran-
que automatic y que un engranaje
habia sido agregado para ayudar al


"Lizzie" de cuatro cilindros a subir
Ias cuestas. Pero de otra mantra es
el mismo que fue hace 55 afios-con
ruedas de rayos de madera, 11antas
con medidas de 30 por 3 pulgadas
y una tapa del motor de bronco bri-
11ante. Su capote, guardafangos y
estribos estin hechos de hojalata.
El Dr. Hubbard dice que el auto
puede correr hasta 45 mills por
hora, usa casi 1 gal6n de combus-
tible cada 15 mills. Pag6 $600 por
el auto en 1955 y recientemente le
hicieron una oferta de $1.400. Liz-
zie cost6 unos $400 nuevecito en
1915. El Dr. Hubbard no 10 vende.
El auto fue comprado en Califor-
nia a un joyen que estaba entre-
gando a Lizzie por un Thunder-
bird. Admirador de autos cl6sicos
durante muchos aiios, el Dr. Hub-
bard dijo que este era el primer
que posexa.
No tuvo que hacer mucho a su
nuevo "viejo" carro que vino equi-
pado con la mayor parte de sus he-

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Al igual que todos los empleados
de la Casa de Hubspedes Tivoli,
Lela Samuels de Cadogan, cajera
de la cocina de esa dependencia de
la Division de Abastos, es suma-
mente efficient, amable y compla-
clente con los que solicitan sus ser-
vicios, como se puede apreciar en
la fotograffa. Lela inici6 sus servi-
clos con el Canal de PanamA hace
27 afios, trabajando en el mercado
del viejo Comisariato de Anc6n;
lucgo pas6 al Comisariato de Cu-
rundd; por un tiempo presto servi-
clos en la seceibn de confiteria del
Hospital Gorgas y anduvo por todas
las salas del hospital con su carrito
vendiendo cigarrillos, confides y
otras cosas uefias a los amen-
tes. Despubs fue asignada al viejo
Clubhouse del Pacifico, situado don-
de ahora estA la Plaza Shaler. Re-
cordando ese tempo dice: "Uno de
los mejores recuerdos que tengo es
el trato que nos daba Sylvester D.
Callender, quien era el gerente del
Clubhouse. Callender es de esas
personas que suavemente y sin ma-
los treats hacen que todos los em-
pleados rindan 10 mejor en su ser-
vicio. For eso me siento tan con-
tenta de que haya escalado la posi-
ci6n que hoy tiene. Se la mercer".
Sirvi6 tambi6n en otras dependen-


cias del Canal y finalmente fue asig-
nada a la Casa de Hubspedes Tivoli,
donde presta servicios desde hace
ya unos 7 afios. La Sra. de Cadogan
naci6 en la ciudad de PanamA,
donde hizo sus studios primaries y
secundarios, pero a los 15 afios tuvo
que empezar a trabajar para ayudar
a su familiar. Hace various afios con-
trajo matrimonio con Samuel Cado-
gan y de esa uni6n nacieron tres


hijos: Sandra, Menisa y Marcos.
Pertenece a la Iglesia Adventista del
S6ptimo Dia y estA muy orgullosa
torque en 1967, estando en Nueva
York, recibi6 aviso de que habia
obtenido un premio por servicios
superiors al Canal. Lo que mis le
gusta es hacer felices a los demis.
Su mayor desco: Tener su casa pro-
pia, para 10 cual ya tiene planes
concretos.


Segi'rn una encuesta llevada a
cabo por la Sylvania Electric Prod-
ucts de EE. UU., como el 87 por
ciento de los jefes de policia que
contestaron su cuestionario en los
EE. UU. creen que un alumbrado
adecuado reduce el vandalism.
Como el 85 por ciento declare que

zonas de mayor incidence, dismi-

El 31 por ciento de los jefes po-
liciacos opin6 que las playas de
estacionamiento de vehiculos en las
illbricas necesitan mi mejor alum-
brado como una protecei6n contra
el vandalism. A1gunos afiadieron
que los calletones y callefuelas bien
alumbrados alrededor de las fibri-

No se descuide con el armaz6n
de phistico de sus anteojos, puede
ser inflamable. Es lo que dice el
Dr. Ben H. Jenkins, en una carta
publicada en el JotmNAL OF THE
AMERICAN 11EDICAL AssocIATION.
Dice el Dr. Jenkins que cuando
trataba de colocar un nuevo lente
en un armaz6n de origin europeo
usando una limpara infrarroja, el
armaz6n explot6 quemaindose.
Desde entouces, 61 ha hecho la
prueba con armazones de anteojos
importados en EE. UU. compro-
bando que la mayoria estlin hechos
de phistico de nitrate que es muy
inflammable.
Estos anteojos son muy peligro-
sos para los que fumen o est6n
cerca de una llama. Al engender el
cigarrillo con un f6sforo, en un
descuido, podria encenderse el ar-
mazon y explotar. Dice el doctor
que la mayoria de los anteojos de
EE. UU. tienen annaz6n de phisti-
cos de acetato que no constituent
riesgo de explosion.

haber sido un estudiante aventajado
o regular.
Los fumadores de marihuana, por
regla general, tienen un falso sen-
tido de habilidad y las consecuen-
cias pueden ser series. Los jdvenes
victims del canyac manejaran un
autom6vil con un falso y exagerado
sentido de su habilidad como cho-
feres. Los borrachos frecuentemen-
te se dan cuenta de que no pueden
11evar a cabo tales areas y no inten-
tan hacerlas.
Los abusadores de la marihuana
a menudo no escuchan a nadie, des-
cuidan su apariencia personal y
sienten que son fracasados despubs
de ver que no pueden Ilevar a cabo
las grades cosas que pensaron
podian hacer mientras se encontra-
ban bajo la influence de las drogas.
El continue abuso tambi6n puede
intensificar la enfermedad psiquid-
trica temporal aunque la actual de-
pendencia fisica en la droga nunca
ha sido probada.
Para muchos, sin embargo, la ma-
rihuana es mucho mis daftina como
la iniciadora en el abuso de las dro-
gas-un curso de introducci6n a los
placeres y peligros del vicio, cuyos
placeres no son tan grades como
se prometian y los peligros mucho
mayors.

SPILLWAY DEL; CANAL DE PANAMA


PA ia 4


La juventud abusa mis de la ma-
rihuana que de cualquier otra droga.
Esto obedece a que la plant crece
ficilmente en tantas parties del
mundo que esti disponible para ser
comprada a un precio muy bajo-un
precio que esti al alcance del bol-
sillo de nuestros adolescents.
El fumar marihuana o canyac
produce la sensaci6n de bienestar
pero tambi6n produce retortijones.
Estos effects son mucho menos in-
tensos que los producidos por la
LSD pero son de tipo similar. Ir6ni-
camente, este es el principal peli-
gro de la marihuana torque el adic-
to, al cansarse de esos efectos leves
puede entonces tratar de probar
substancias mis fuertes incluyendo
heroine y otras.
Aunque la marihuana no 11eva a
una persona inevitablemente al
abuso de drogas fuertes, es un he-
cho conocido que la mayor parte
de los que abusan de la heroine han
experimentado prunero con la mari-
huana. Tradicionalmente, han sido
inducidos al uso de las drogas por
intermedio de amigos n otros con-
tactos en la culture de la "droga
fuerte". Aqui en la Zona del Canal
han sido inducidos muy frecuente-
mente a la marihuana y otras drogas
por los lideres entre los que abusan
de las drogas entre nuestra juven-

Nuestro problema en la Zona del
Canal es grande. Las fiestas de can-
yac current entre ciertos grupos de
estudiantes de escuela secundaria y
algunos j6venes universitarios. Para
ellos, el fumar marihuana es 10 que
esti "de moda". Lleva consigo la
emoci6n de hacer algo legal y la
satisfacci6n de rebelarse contra el
establecimiento y la autoridad pa-
terna 1
Afortunadamente, la mayoria de
los j6venes que prueban el canyac
10 deja despubs que la novedad
pasa. Se dan cuenta de que los gol-
pes que reciben no valen los riesgos
o los effects secundarios. Un grupo
considerable, sin embargo, no se
senate satisfecho con la experience.
Quieren y esperan placeres siempre
mis intensos. En consecuencia, al-
gunos suelen cambiar a la heroine
y otras substancias alucinantes como
la LSD. Una vez que han comenza-
do a tomar drogas fuertes, tomarin
frecuentemente drogas milltiples en
secuencia o simultineamente.
Los proponents de la marihuana
sostienen que la droga causa menos
datio que el alcohol y que por lo
tanto deberia ser legalizada. Pero
se olvidan o prefieren ignorar las
diferencias importance entre el
vicio del alcohol y el vicio de la
marihuana. Es importance conside-
rar que la mayor parte de la gente
no toma alcohol hasta el punto de
la intoxicaci6n. Uno a dos tragos al
dia normalmente tienen poco efec-
to. En cambio, uno a dos cigarri-
Ilos pueden producer intoxicaci6n de
marihuana. Hay algunos j6venes
aqui en la Zona del Canal que fu-
man hasta 10 0 15 cigarrillos de
marihuana al dia comenzando tem-
prano por la mailana y continuando
durante todo el dia, permaneciendo
continuamente perturbados por el
canyac.
El alcohol, cuando se abusa de
bl, es compatible can un considera-
ble period de productividad. Esto
no es necesariamente la verdad con
la marihuana cuya acci6n es mucho
mis rdpida. Interfere rApidamente
con la productividad social y eco-
n6mica. Es propensa especialmente
a interferir con el empefio del Joven
de salir bien en la escuela. Sus ca-
lificaciones bajan rdpidamente y hay
entonces una regresi6n a so deseo
de cumplir. Pronto se convierte en
