Gi ftof the Panama Canal Museum

Vol. VIII, No. 27 More Than 55 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, December 19, 1969



The coming festivities will bring
to a close another year, another
decade, both marked by progress
and achievement.
During 1969, man took his first
steps on the moon and many of us
fortunate to be living in this age
were able to see it as it happened.
It has been a year of achievement
for the Panama Canal as well.
Ship traffic remained at a high
level while the number of large
ships transiting the Canal con-
tinued to grow. The large vessels
help account for a new cargo rec-
ord of more than 100 million long
tons in fiscal 1969.
I would like to thank all Canal
employees for their continued ex-
cellent performance that kept the
waterway operating smoothly dur-
ing the year.
Mrs. Leber and I wish a Merry
Christmas to all employees and
their families, and to our friends
in the Republic of Panama. May
you have a. New Year that brings
both joy and prosperity.
And to those who have loved
ones serving their country far from
home, we pray for their safe,
speedy return so that next year they
will be united with their families
for the holiday season.


OF Private Car

Rule Changed
Gov. W. P. Leber has approved
a change in regulations concern-
ing the transporting of privately-
owned autos between New Orleans
and the Canal Zone aboard the
SS Cristobal at Government ex-
Effective December 3, an em-
ployee's auto being shipped at
Government expense aboard the
Canal organization's vessel will also
be transported by railroad, between
Cristobal and Balboa at no cost to
the employee.
The ruling is an amendment to
the regulation providing transpor-
tation by the SS Cristobal between
Cristobal and New Orleans for new
employees of the Canal organiza-
tion being brought to the Canal
Zone with their household effects;
employees bringing replacement
vehicles to the Canal Zone and em-
ployees returning to the United
States upon separation or transfer
after completion of a tour of duty.
Replacement vehicles may be
brought to the Canal Zone only
after 4 years from the date of trans-
portation of the motor vehicle then
being used and when the employee
has been serving continuously
during a 4-year period with U.S.
Government agencies on the Isth-

Trash Collectors Need

Public's Cooperation

Two dozen additional workmen
and six large trucks will be added
to the nornnal collection force by
the Grounds Maintenance Branch
during Christmas week for speedy
collection of trash in Canal Zone
But the cooperation of every
resident is needed to help keep the
townsites clean, particularly during
the holiday season when more
trash is generated than during any
other time of the year. Gift wrap-
pings, decorations, boxes, and
mvriad other Christmas related
materials build mountains of trash
that must be collected and disposed
The additional staff of men and
trucks will be at work the entire
week of Christmas, from Sunday,
December 21, to Saturday, Decem-
ber 27, making collections at town-
sites on both sides of the Isthmus.
To speed up collections, res-
idents are asked to package trash in
a box or bag and tie it up firmly
before placing it in the large metal

Freedom Share

Notes Issuance

To Be Halted
Now that the interest rate on
U.S. Savings Bonds, Series E, has
increased from 4/4 to 5 percent,
Freedom Share Notes will no
longer be issued. The Freedom
Share Notes were originally offered
in 1967 for purchase in combina-
tion with E Bonds but with the

containers outside their quarters.
The packaging will make for easier
handling by workman and will help
prevent stray animals from scatter-
ing it about.
Parents should keep their chil-
dren away from trash after it is
taken outside for collection. Curi-
ous youngsters enjoy digging into
trash, often without regard to un-
sightliness they might create. They
also tend to overlook any safety
hazards in the form of broken glass,
exposed nails, or wood splinters.

Auto Inspection

To Begin January 2

The 1970 safety inspection of
privately-owned motor vehicles li-
censed in the Canal Zone will start
Friday, January 2, at the Panama
Canal Company's Motor Transpor-
tation Division garages in Ancon
and Cristobal.
Hours for inspection will be con-
tinuous from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., in-
cluding the lunch hour, every day
of the regular workweek, Monday
through Friday. These hours are
established to permit owners who
work regular office hours and

Janet Hunt of Balboa, demonstrates how to package trash neatly before
depositing in trash cans. The Grounds Maintenance Branch doesn't expect
everyone to be as neat as Janet but asks that trash be bagged or boxed
and tied firmnnly to make for speedy collection during Christmas week.

others who work on shift basis to
have their cars inspected outside
normal work periods.
Vehicle owners are reminded
that they must have in their posses-
sion a copy of their vehicle registra-
tion for 1970 when they bring their
cars for inspection.
The inspection will cover brakes,
lighting system, windows and
windshields, turn indicators, horns,
alignment of wheels, tires, and
other operating parts of the car
which affect safety. After the vehi-
cle passes inspection, an inspection
sticker will be placed on the wind-
shield, and an inspection certificate
will be issued. The latter must be
carried in the vehicle at all times.
Cost for the inspection, including
sticker and certificate, is 75 cents.
Canal Zone Vehicle Regulations
specify that privately-owned vehi-
cles registered in the Canal Zone
must be inspected each year during
the months of January and Feb-
ruary. Car owners are urged to
come early and avoid the last
minute rush.

Girl Scout Director
To Depart Canal Zone
Mrs. Olivia Dorman, field direc-
tor at the Canal Zone Girl Scout
Council, was recently honored at
a dinner given at the Albrook
Officers' Club by the council.
Mrs. Dorman and her husband,
Capt. Clive Dorman, plan to de-
part Panama December 22 for Los
Gatos, Calif., where they will
spend Christmas with their parents.
Later they plan to move to Cor-
vallis, Oreg., where Captain Dor-
man will complete graduate work
at Oregon State University.

Princeton Univ.

Publishes Book

By BHS Grad

Don Michael Randel, a 1958
graduate of Balboa High School,
has recently written a book entitled,
"The Responsorial Psalm Tones for
the Mozarabic Office," the first
study on the subject to appear since
The book is based on the conclu-
sions of a 2 years study and research
in Spain of music neuimes, the sym-
bols used in the notation of the
Cregorian chant and the ancient
liturgy used by the Christians in
Spain before the 12th Century.
Randel, who is assistant professor
in the Department of Music at Cor-
nell University, was graduated from
Princeton University with high
honors in 1962 and received his
master of arts and doctor of philos-
ophy from the same university.
Awarded both a Woodrow Wilson
Fellowship and Danford Fellow-
ship, he accepted an honorary
Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. His
research in Spain was through a
Fulbright grant.
Randel's father is Clay Randel,
general agent of the Maryland
Casualty Co. of Panama. Mr. and
Mrs. Clay Randel are longtime
residents of Panama.
A copy of the book, published by
the Princeton University Press, has
been placed at the Canal Zone Li-
brary and another copy is in the
l'alboa High School Library.

Corozal Hospital

Is Renamed To

Fit Functions
Corozal Hospital, the Canal Zone
psychiatric facility, has been re-
named the Canal Zone Mental
Health Center. Col. H. H. Ziper-
man, Canal Zone Health Director,
made the announcement, last week,
following the signing of the order
by Gov. W. P. Leber.
The new designation fits the
current functions of the facility
which have changed and expanded
through the years to fit community
needs. The Canal Zone Mental
Health Center, recently recognized
as such by the National Institute of
Mental Health, now offers a wide
variety of services.
These include 24-hour emergency
psychiatric care and inpatient, out-
patient, day patient, and night
patient care. Consultation is avail-
able for individuals, groups, and
organizations and an industrial
rehabilitation service is available.
Special treatment programs have
been set up for alcoholism and for
dealing with the problems of ado-
lescence. Training in Community
Mental Health is provided for
Health Bureau employees as well as
to members of other organizations.
The staff of the center is avail-
able throughout regular working
hours and 24 hours a day for admis-
sion of psychiatric emergencies.

John Kenneth Galbraith in Am-

of the years he spent in India as

is the wealth of lively personal
anecdotes and evaluations of people
encountered. The photographs of
India and the Indians are excellent.
Evelyn Berckman's new book She

Hollywood where a rich, retired

There is a surprise ending.

The Black Camels by Ronald
Johnston is a good, brisk thriller set

It concerns an old sheik who wants

zest to the adventure.

The Gatun Locks PABX numbers
are presently reached by dialing
58-2xx and 58-3xx. Under the new
plan, 5-7xx and 5-8xx will be
dialed. A digit is being eliminated
from the locks PABX prefix code

the 300 series numbers will be
changed to 800 series.
The Coco Solo Hospital PABX

the immediate hospital area will be
changed from 34 to 32. A hospital
number dialed from outside the hos-
pital area will be 32-6xx instead of
34 and the last two digits of the

care of him personally and then
told him he owed $2. Furious, the
"baron" insulted Moya, tossed him
a $1 and walked out.
Moya mentioned the incident to
the Tivoli manager who in turn
reported it to the Canal Zone
Police. A short time later, Moya
and the incident were making front
page news as the "baron" turned
out to be a Nazi spy who had
escaped from Brazil.
Moya, who completes 50 years
of barbering this month, left the
Tivoli several years ago and is now
in charge of the barbershop at the
Balboa Service Center. During his
long career, he has had many cus-
tomers and is now taking care of
the sons and grandsons of his first
Of Spanish descent, Moya was
born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and
grew up in Chile and Argentina,
where he learned barbering. With
white coat, snow-white hair and
genial smile, Moya has a dis-
tinguished appearance that matches
his cultured manner. Customers
admit that he has a flair for putting
special interest into just about any
topic of conversation selected by
the client.
When he was 21, Moya made a
fateful stop at the Tivoli Hotel
while en route to a job in Mexico.
The manager of the Tivoli barber-
shop who was about ready to retire
convinced Mova to stay. Later
offers to manage barbershops in
luxury hotels in Paris and Miami
did not move him. "It was too
late," Moya said. He had made too
many friends in Panama and the
Canal Zone. But the main reason
was his Panamanian wife and two
daughters. The Isthmus was home.
Mova's daughter, Olga, is Mrs.
Emilio Cadet, who has 23 years'
service with the Information Office
of the American Embassy in Pan-
ama. Her husband is manager of
"Devoci6n" a candle factory in
Panama. Cadet who has a magnifi-
cent baritone voice, is well known
in musical circles on the Isthmus.
Daughter Berta, known by her

friends as Betty, is married to Tito
Zerbinati, president and general
manager of FARMA, S.A., a phar-
maceutical products importing firm
in Panama.
Moya has five grandchildren and
three great-grandchildren who also
help him enjoy weekends at his
house at Coronado Beach.

The nativity scene is the true
symbol of Christmas, but although
the holy day is celebrated Decem-

or year of Christ's birth. Some
authorities claimed it was Jan-

Historically, there is good reason
to question the d(late, for His birth-
day was not celebrated until 400
years after He died.

Helpful Hints

For Christmas

Safe From Fire
Since Christmas trees and decora-
tions are a potential fire hazard, the
Fire Division makes the following
suggestions to help make this a
fire-safe Christmas:
1. Saw off the butt of the Christ-
mas tree at an angle 1 inch
above the original cut. Place
the tree in water and check
the level daily. Place it away
from doorways and make
sure it has adequate support.
2. Use lighting equipment which
has the Underwriters' Labo-
ratories (UL) label. Check
for frayed wires, loose con-
nections, and broken sockets.
Do not plug too many cords
into one outlet.
3. Turn off lights before retiring
at night or leaving the house.
4. Metal trees are not a fire hazard
but may be a shock hazard.
Those with built-in electrical
systems should carry the
(UL) label.
5. Have plenty of large, safe ash-
trays around and use them.
Do not allow smoking near
tree, decorations, or wrap-
6. Above all, plan what to do in
case of fire. If fire strikes,
clear everybody out of the
house, then call the Fire De-
partment immediately. Dial
119 before attempting to
fight the fire by yourself.

Be content with your place in
life. The dead' always are.

Retiring Employees

Maj. James Bozman, divisional commander of the Panama and Canal Zone
Salvation Army, accepts donations of toys from Robert and William Friar,
ages 9 and 6, at the Salvation Army headquarters in La Boca. The boys
are joining in the campaign to encourage Canal Zone children not to
throw away their broken and outgrown toys but to give them to the
Salvation Army or other charitable organizations for distribution to needy
families during the Christmas season. The boys are the sons of Mrs. Willie
K. Friar, of Diablo Heights.

Don 't Throw

Out Those

Usable Toys

The holiday season is clean-out-
the toybox time in many homes,
but don't throw away those broken
and discarded toys. The Salvation
Army would like to have them to
distribute to needy families.
Not only toys are needed but
clothing, furniture, or any other
articles can be used. Often the per-
son who receives the articles is able
to repair them so don't hesitate to
bring in articles just because they
are not in perfect condition.
Typical of the people being
helped by these donations are the
15 families in the Perlas Islands
whose story was brought to the
attention of the Salvation Armyv
this month. The toys and clothing
which the Salvation Army was able
to provide are making it possible
for the children there to have a
happy Christmas.
Items may be delivered to the
Salvation Army Regional Head-
quarters, 0792 La Boca Road any-
time during the clay and left under
the house.

can be pursued more efficiently
with E Bonds alone.
Payroll deductions for purchase
of Freedom Share Notes will be
terminated as rapidly as possible
between January and June 1970 as
soon as the full purchase price has
been accumulated in each indivi-
dual account for issuance of a final
Freedom Share Note.
If an individual does not wish to
have his agency automatically can-
cel his existing E Bond-Freedom
Share Notes account, he may sub-
mit, prior to the expiration date for
his account, a new authorization
for E Bonds alone to become effec-
tive following the terminal pay
period for his existing Freedom
Share account.

Ninety-seven Panama Canal em-
ployees with U.S. Government
service totaling more than 2,842
years or 5,954,552 man-hours re-
tired from the Canal organization
recently and those still on the Isth-
must received retirement certifi-
cates at a ceremony at the Roose-
velt Room of the Tivoli Guest
House last week. Acting Cov. R. S.
HIlartline presented the certificates
and addressed the retirees.
The Acting Governor thanked
the retirees for their many years of
faithful service and said that the
Canal organization was sorry to lose
them, their skills and the many
years of experience they represent.
He remarked on the fine record of
the Canal during its 55 years of
operation with no interruptions in
shipping and no increase in tolls.
He noted that formerly the ratio
between ships put through the
Canal and number of employees
was two employees for every ship
transit. Today, the ratio is even,
with approximately 15,000 em-
ployees putting through 15,000
ships each year, showing produc-
tivity has doubled.
A highlight of the ceremony was
when Harold I. Perantie, Chief of
the Administrative Services Divi-
sion, who usually is present to ex-
tend his congratulations to retiring
employees, came forward and re-
ceived his retirement certificate and
congratulations from the Acting
Eric C. McDonald, accounting
clerk, with more than 50 years

Las festividades venideras marcaran el final de otro afio y otra decada,
plenos de logros y progress.
Durante 1969, el hombre dio sus primeros pasos sobre la luna y muchos
de nosotros, que tenemos la fortune de vivir en esta 6poca, pudimos ver
esta hazafia cuando succdi6. Tambien ha sido un aino de logros para el
Canal de Panama.
El trafico de naves permaneci6 en alto nivel, a la par que el numero de
superbarcos continuaba creciendo. Esas grandes naves contribuyeron a
que fuera impuesta una nueva marca de carga transportada por el Canal,
de mas de 100 millones de toneladas largas, durante el aio fiscal de 1969.
Quiero agradecer a todos los empleados del Canal por su permanent
y excelente desempeio que mantuvo a la via interoceAnica en perfect
operaci6n durante el aflo.
Mi esposa y yo deseamos Feliz Navidad a todos los empleados y sus
families, y a nuestros amigos de la Repdblica de PanamA. Que el Afio
Nuevo les traiga a todos alegria y prosperidad.
Y les decimos, a aquellos que tienen series queridos sirviendo a su pais
lejos del hogar, que rezamos por su retorno seguro y pronto, de manera
que el afio entrante est6n reunidos con sus families durante esta temporada
de Navidad.

Fuerza Adicional Para

Dos docenas adicionales de tra-

serin agregados a la fuerza normal

Mantenimiento de Predios durante
la semana de Navidad para una re-
colecci6n rapida de la basura en las
comunidades de la Zona del Canal.
Pero la cooperaci6n de cada re-
sidente es necesaria para ayudar a
mantener limpias las comunidades,
particularmente durante la 6poca
festival cuando se acumula mAs ba-
sura que en cualquier otra 6poca

coraciones, cajas y millares de otros
materials relacionados con la Na-
vidad forman montafilas de basura

bres y camiones estarA trabajando

el domingo 21 de diciembre hasta
el sAbado 27 de diciembre, hacien-
do recolecciones en las comunida-
des de ambos lados del Istmo.
Para acelerar las recolecciones,
se ha solicitado a los residents
empacar la basura en una cajeta o

bolsa y amarrarla firmemente antes
de ponerla en los grandes recipien-
tes de metal fuera de sus residen-
cias. El empaque facilitara el ma-
nejo a los trabajadores y ayudarA
a evitar que los animals sueltos
desparramen la basura.
Los padres de familiar deberAn
mantener a sus hijos alejados de la
basura despues que es puesta afue-
ra para ser recogida. J6venes curio-
sos gustan de escarbar en la basu-
ra, a menudo sin considerar el es-
pectaculo repugnant que pueden
crear. Tambien tienden a pasar por
alto cualquier peligro contra la se-
guridad como vidrios rotos, clavos
expuestos o astillas de madera.

No Bote los Cabitos
Cuando sus lApices queden con-
vertidos en cabitos y muy cortos
para ser usados en su oficina o en
la casa, no los bote. Ll6velos a la

El nuevo nombre va de acuerdo
con las actuales funciones de dicha
instituci6n, que ha cambiado y se
ha ampliado con el pasar de los

dades de la comunidad. El Centro
de Salud Mental de la Zona del

1. Empiece desde la infancia a dar a su hijo todo lo que 61 le pide. De
esta manera crecern creyendo que el mundo le debe a 61 su existencia.
2. Cuando diga las primeras malas palabras, cel6breselas. Esto hara
career que 61 es "divertido". Tambi6n le animari a aprender frases mais
"divertidas" que mas tarde le "volarAni" su cabeza de sorpresa.
3. No le d6 nunca entrenamniento spiritual. Espere hasta que el nifio
tenga 21 afios de edad y entonces d6jele "decidir por si mismo".
4. Evite el uso de la palabra "reprensible" o "eir6neo". Puede adquirir
el complcjo do culpabilidad. Esto le hara career mis tarde, cuando se le
arrested por robar un carro, que la sociedad entera estai en contra de 61 y
que esti siendo perseguido injustamente.
5. Recoja todo lo que 61 deja tirado, como libros, zapatos, su ropa, etc.
Hiagale todo v mAs tarde sera un expert en echar la responsabilidad a
otras personas.
6. D6jele leer cualquier libro que 61 quiera. Tenga cuidado de que
la vajilla y los vasos que 61 usa esten esterilizadosi pero deje que su mente
se alimente leyendo "basura".
7. Pelee frecuentemente en presencia de sus nifios. De esta manera
61el no se sorprendera mAs tarde cuando el hogar se desbarate.
8. D6 a su niiio todo el dinero que 61 le pida. No deje que nunca gane
61 so propio dinero. (Por qu6 tiene 61 que tener todo a costa de sacrificio
como lo tuvo usted?
9. Complazca todos sus descos por comida, bebida y comodidad. Asegi-
rese de que todos sus deseos sextiales scan complacidos. Una negaci6n
puede conducir a un chasco mty da(ino.
10. P6ngase a favor de 61 v en contra de sus vecinos, profesores, policia.
Todos ellos estain con prejuicios en contra de su hijo.
11. Ciando 61el est6 en uina dificultad verdadera, disculpese diciendo que
ousted no pudo hacer nunca nada por corregirlo.
12. Preparese para una vida di torttira. Senta muy probable que li sted
la tenga. (Departamento de Policia, Houston, Texas.)

El Profesor Audley Webster, director de la Escuela

El uso de la marihuana en exce-
so causa una variedad de efectos
mentales y fisicos. Algunos de esos
sintomas pueden aparecer luego de
una o dos chupadas al cigarrillo y
el efecto puede durar desde various
minutes a varias horas. Puede con-
sistir en una leve euforia y llevar a
una sugestionabilidad excesiva y
percepci6n defectuosa que, a su
vez, produce una convicci6n exa-
gerada de que se estA pensando
mas clara, profunda y creativamen-
te. Tambi6n puede producer aluci-
naciones, ansiedad pronunciada, re-
acciones paranoicas y psicosis tran-
sitoria. La marihuana tiende a dis-
minuir las inhibiciones y le crea al
que la usa una falsa realidad ba-
sada en sus deseos o motivaciones
o en la situaci6n particular en que
se encuentra el que la usa.
Considerable preocupaci6n ha
sido expresadao en los Estados Uni-
dos sobre la posibilidad de cambios
en la personalidad y pArdida de
motivaci6n entire los jmvenes que se
dedican a fumar marihuana. Un
agent distorcionador de la reali-
dad como la marihuana tiene la po-
tencialidad de desarrollar futures
aberraciones psicol6gicas en el in-
dividuo que la usa. Siendo la ado-
Icscencia un period normal de en-
redos psicol6gicos, el uso de la
marihuana puede, y frecuentemen-
te causa, enredos adicionales. El
uso persistent de tal agente, que
sirve para salirse de la realidad
durante este period critic del de-
sarrollo del adolescent, con much
probabilidad afectara adversamen-
te la habilidad que en el future el
oven o la joven necesite para en-
frentarse a una sociedad compleja.
Algunos studios efectuados en

del Canal, 37 de 38 adolescents,
admnitidos en el Hospital de Coro-
zal durante el pasado afio con un
historical de haber fumado marihua-
na en exceso, mostraron un des-
censo inicial y significativo en su
desempefio escolar. El 6nico pa-
ciente que no fue afectado de esa
manera mostraba un comporta-
miento agresivo y destructor hasta
el punto de llegar a la violencia
fisica cuando se encontraba bajo el
influjo de la marihuana. Tan pronto
como estos j6venes dejaron de usar
la marihuana en exceso, se produjo
una mejoria inmediata y significa-
tiva en sus logros escolares.
Algunos adolescents han trata-
do de justificar el uso de la mari-
huana diciendo que no es peor que
el uso del alcohol por los adults.
Sin embargo, ellos olvidan que no
es vAlido justificar la adopci6n de
un nuevo abuso sobre la base de
que no es peor que otro que ya
existe. El uso de la marihuana no
resuelve el problema del alcohol,
sino que lleva a crear un nuimero
adicional de individuos intoxicados
por la marihuana. MAs a6n, la ma-
rihuana, a diferencia del alcohol,
casi siempre es consumida con el
prop6sito expreso de obtener una
alta intoxicaci6n para dcsorientar-
se, a diferencia del tomador mode-
rado o social que usa del alcohol.
La Asociaci6n Medica America-
na ha declarado que la marihuana
es una droga peligrosa y como tal,
un peligro a la salubridad puiblica.
A pesar de oque declaran que no
desarrolla una dependencia fisica,
si se hace constar que no es una
droga innocua.

Poco antes de que Estados Uni-
dos entrara a la II Guerra Mundial,
un hombre rubio, de porte marcial,
entr6 a la barberia del Hotel Tivoli.
Pidi6 que le hicieran un trabajo
complete y se identific6 como un
bar6n europeo. El gerente de la bar-
beria se encarg6 personalmente de
atenderlo y cuando le present la
cuenta, por $2, el hombre mont6 en
c6lera y despectivamente le arroj6
un billete de $1. El gerente de la
barberia inform6 del incident a los
funcionarios del hotel, quienes lo
pusieron en conocimiento de la Po-
licia de la Zona del Canal. Al poco
tiempo, el nombre del gerente de
la barberia del Tivoli y el incident
aparecian en primera plana en los
grandes peri6dicos de Occidente: el
pseudo bar6n era en realidad un
espia nazi, escapado del Brasil.
Lleg6 Hace 50 Aflos
El gerente de la barberia del
Hotel Tivoli era Gilberto Moya,
quien en este mes de diciembre
complete 50 afios de servir como
barbero a miles y miles de residen-
tes de la Zona del Canal, muchos
de los cuales han sostenido corres-
pondencia con 61 afios despu6s de
haberse ausentado del Istmo.
Moya, desde hace ya bastante
tiempo dej6 el Tivoli y ahora estA
encargado de la Barberia del Centro
de Servicios Comunales de Balboa.

Guarda Muchos Recuerdos
Uno puede pasar horas escuchan-
do a Moya hablar de sus viejos
amigos, unos que resident aqui y
otros que hace tiempo partieron
para otros lares. Mantiene active
correspondencia con muchos de
ellos, especialmente con el ex Go-
hemrnador J. S. Seybold. "Mientras el
General Seybold estuvo aqui de
Gobernador, todas las Navidades
me traia personalmente una botella
de champafia. Lo que mis le agra-
decia yo era el gesto de desocupar-
se una persona de su talla para ren-
dirle culto a la amistad. Es un gran
senior", dice Don Gilberto recordan-
do los dias que ya se fueron.
Se Qued6 por Casualidad
Fue una casualidad que se que-
dara en Panama. Nacido en Ecua-
dor, desde muy nifio sus padres lo
Ilevaron a Chile, donde pas6 gran
parte de su juventud, lo mismo que
en Argentina. Fue en Santiago y
Buenos Aires, donde aprendi6 su
profesi6n. Pero cuando uno habla
con Moya, queda gratamente sor-
prendido por su aire de gran senior
y por la gran cultural que se des-
prende de su conversaci6n. Durante
sus afios en Santiago y Buenos Aires,
altern6 con literatos y politicos. De
todos ellos del que mais recuerdos

dri, ex Presidente de Chile y quien

Quiere Mucho a Panama
A los 21 afios, a principios de
1920, se encontraba de paso en
PanamA, para ir a trabajar en M6xi-
co,. Pero al Ilegar aqui, el gerente
de la Barberia del Hotel Tivoli, que
no podia jubilarse por no encontrar
substitute, le hizo ver todas las ven-
tajas de trabajar aqui y todas las in-
certidumbres que presagiaba el con-
vulso M6xico de aquel entonces. El
resultado fue que se qued6 en Pa-
nama. Afios mas tarde, le ofrecie-
ron un contrato para administrar la
barberia de un hotel de lujo en
Paris. Luego un contrato parecido
en Miami. "Ya era muy tarde", dice
Moya, teniaa muchos amigos en
PanamA y en la Zona del Canal.
Pero la principal raz6n eran mi es-
posa, Eloisa Falc6n, nacida en Pa-
nama, pais que he adoptado como
mi patria, y mis hijas".
Moya tiene dos hijas, Olga y
Bertha, cinco nietos y tres biznietos.
