the past year, came to the Canal
organization from Chrysler Cor-
poration's Space Division in New
Orleans where he was a research
engineering specialist in the Sat-
urn I program and the subsequent
advanced missile and space booster
development.
A graduate of Webb Institute at
Glen Cove, N.Y., Riggs attended
the institute on a 4-year scholar-
ship and received a bachelor of
science degree in naval architec-
ture and marine engineering. He
studied and taught engineering
mechanics from 1947 to 1949 at
the Virginia Polytechnic Institute
and was awarded a teaching fel-
lowship. He earned a master's
degree in engineering mechanics
from the Drexel Institute of Tech-
nology at Philadelphia while in the
Navy.
Riggs was awarded a teaching
fellowship in engineering in the
Graduate School of Arts and Sci-
ences at Harvard University. He
also taught advanced aeronautical
dynamics at Drexel Institute.
He was an officer in the U.S.
Navy from 1940 to 1946 and in
1950 returned to the Navy where
he remained until 1961. In Kodiak,
Alaska, and later in Philadelphia,
he headed the Office of the Indus-

Youth Council

Being Formed

To Help Youth
The Canal Zone Youth Council,
represented by youth from all the
schools in the Canal Zone, is being
formed to promote better under-
standing between the Administra-
tion and the Canal Zone youth.
The council is to be composed
of 11 local youth councils, each
containing 6 members. Six of the
councils will be from the schools,
one will represent the apprentice
group, and four councils will be
representative of groups other than
the schools. One member of each of
these councils will form an 11
member Canal Zone Youth Council.
Students interested in promoting
this type of organization, which will
open a line of communication di-
rectly to the Governor's Office on
matters concerning the youth of
the Canal Zone, may sign up in
the school Principal's Office. The
schools will be used only to hold
elections and to distribute informa-
tion on the Youth Council.
The Canal Zone Youth Council
will give youth an opportunity to
express their needs and be heard
by the Administration. Problems
such as the need for recreational
facilities, work opportunities and
other matters concerning youth will
be taken up by the council.

Gov. Leber Addresses


PC Society of Florida


Gov. W. P. Leber covered high-
lights of the Canal's past, present
and future last week in a talk before
some 300 members of the Panama
Canal Society of Florida during the
group's annual reunion in St. Peters-
burg, Fla.
The society, composed primarily
of Panama Canal retirees, heard
the Governor's address during Fri-

with color slides, discussed many
of the outstanding events of 1969 in
the Canal Zone and the Republic
of Panama.
Following the luncheon, Gov-
ernor Leber met Roosevelt Medal
holders and Construction-day Canal
employees and numerous others
attending the luncheon.
Outgoing society president Wil-
liam L. Howard, former Cristobal
postmaster, told the Governor that
members of the society maintain
keen interest in happenings on the
Isthmus and appreciate being given
first hand information each year by
Canal officials. Principal speaker
last year was Paul M. Runnestrand,
Executive Secretary of the Canal
Zone.

RUBELLA
It is very rare that the medical
profession is able to foresee and
prevent an epidemic which may
lead to either death or disability
but such is the case in 1970 when
an epidemic of rubella (German
Measles) is considered likely to be
upon us.
German measles, or rubella, has
been a recognized disease since
1815 but not much was understood
or done about it until the past
10 years.
Infections caused by rubella virus
are usually characterized by a rash
that lasts from 1 to 7 days, fever,
some swelling of the lymph nodes
in the neck and a slight headache.
The disease is mild in children-so
mild that it may escape diagnosis
entirely or be considered a "heat
rash" or one of the "things" affect-
ing those who dwell in the tropics.
But rubella is a major concern
when a mother is infected by the
virus during pregnancy. The earlier
in pregnancy rubella occurs the
greater the hazard to the unborn
baby. If the mother contracts rubella
during the first 3 months of preg-
nancy the baby may be stillborn or,
if it lives, handicapped by multiple
deformities such as cataracts of the
eyes, deafness, heart defects, or
brain injury. Frequently children
born to mothers having rubella
during early pregnancy may have
several defects.
Rubella epidemics occur approxi-
mately every 5 to 7 years. The last
large epidemic in the United States
was in 1963-64. At that time some
30,000 infants were stillborn and


Health



Notes




approximately 20,000 damaged ones
survived. Special schools have been
developed in many cities to care for
the needs of these children.
The next epidemic year is ex-
pected to be 1970. You can protect
your children, yourself, and your
community by taking your child to
your local Community Health Cen-
ter or military dispensary for a
single injection of rubella vaccine.
This vaccine is thought to provide
lifetime protection and it gives few,
if any, side effects.
The measles vaccine your child
has previously received provides
protection against the "hard" or
"red" measles rubeolaa) but offers
no protection against German
measles (rubella). Rubella vaccine
has been licensed for use only since
June 1969 so any measles immu-
nization prior to this date does not
offer protection against rubella.
Boys and girls in organized nurs-
ery schools, kindergarten, first, and
second grades are the main victims
and disseminators of rubella. As
the vaccine becomes more plentiful
all children from 1 year to 12 years
will receive it but at the moment
due to cost and small supply only
the "target" group mentioned above
is eligible. Even though your child
may have had rubella, or an illness
resembling rubella, he -or she is still
a candidate for the vaccine because
there are many diseases which cause
a rash similar and practically in-
distinguishable from true rubella.
Rubella vaccine is offered free of
charge at all Community Health
Centers. Now is a good time to get
all immunizations up to date.

The circled areas show the tailbay fendering already installed in Pedro Miguel Locks.


Miraflores Fendering


Work To Begin Jan. 18


New rubber rendering, which is
designed to minimize damage to
ships should they strike the locks
walls, is being installed on the
walls in the tailbays and forebays
at Miraflores Locks.
The work will begin January 18
in the east lane, which will be
closed to traffic from 10 p.m. to 6
a.m. daily until March 1. After that
date, the work will be moved to the
west lane, which will be closed to
vessel traffic during the same 8-hour
period. The project should be com-
pleted April 18.
Similar rubber fendering has been
installed in the other two sets of
Panama Canal locks and is one of a
series of projects being carried out
by the Marine Bureau to improve
service and speed up ship transits.
The fenders are designed to pro-
tect ships should they rub against
the lock walls when they are enter-
ing or leaving the locks chambers.
The approach walls and wingwall
knuckles already are rendered at
all locks.
The work to be started at Mira-
flores January 18 includes installa-


tion of fendering on the tailbay, or
lower end of each locks lane, and
the forebay, or upper portion, ex-
tending from the arresting chain to
the first set of miter gates.
The rendering offers protection
for ships and will permit certain
size ships an increased draft allow-
ance. The greater draft results from
the fender holding a ship away from
the wall about 6 inches, thus in-
creasing the draft at which the
underwater portion of the ship's
hull touches the inclined portion of
the lock walls at the bottom of the
chamber.


Atlantic Side

Inventories
The Margarita Service Center
Merchandise Section will be closed
all day Saturday, January 31, for
formal inventory. The Cristobal
Pier Snack Bar Merchandise Sec-
tion will be closed at 4 p.m. and
the Atlantic Luncheonette Mer-
chandise Section will be closed at
1 p.m. the same day.

a popular young group, will pro-
vide all types of dance music for
those attending and the dignitaries
from the Canal Zone and Panama
who have been invited to the ball.
Four door prizes will be given

The day may have been overcast
last week, but in the Executive Plan-
ning Staff offices at Balboa Heights
everyone was scrambling for their
sunglasses, when the Torrid Trio
walked in Charles MacArthur
wearing a fuchsia pink shirt, Sandy
Hinkle wearing an avocado green
shirt, and Gary Dunsmoor in a
mustard yellow shirt. And would
you believe that they didn't clash??
It's surprising how many of the
men haven't minded going to Gra-
phic Branch these days since stu-
dent assistant Teresa Rodriguez
started working there last week.

Word has been received that
Rick Shapiro is back to his old
tricks of looking like Jack Nicklaus
on the Summit golf course.

about the problem he was having
with his memory. He said that he
was having trouble keeping things
in mind for more than a few sec-

because it wasn't normal.
"Well," we. asked, anxious to

HOUSEHOLD HINTS: If you
have a weight problem and have
tried jogging to no avail, try skip-
ping-skipping, breakfast; skipping
lunch, and skipping dinner.
An easy way to remove grass
stains from children's playclothes
is to saturate the stains in vinegar
and then rub until they disappear.
Then wash in the regular manner.
If you get sleepy after lunch, try
washing out your eyes with luke-
warm water. It's a real mid-day
pickup.
If you wrap cheese in a soft cloth
dampened in vinegar it will keep
the cheese extra fresh when you
place it in an airtight container.

2 Rabid Bats

Are Found in
Balboa Area
The discovery of two rabid bats
found recently in the Balboa area
has prompted a warning from the
Health Bureau's Division of Vet-
erinary Medicine.
Results of laboratory examina-
tion of three bats found in the Bal-
boa area showed that two of the
bats, one found in front of quarters
on Akee Street, and the other under
a house on Carr Street, were rabid.
Both bats were of the Artibeus spe-
cies. Findings of these laboratory
tests indicate that there may be an
outbreak of rabies going through
this particular bat species and pos-
sibly others.
More bats may be found flying
around quarters during dry season
in their search for water. Breeding
usually takes place at this time of
year which means that transmission
of infection is more likely, also.
Bats found on the ground should
not be handled, and parents are
urged to instruct their children
against picking up or touching these
animals. Anyone finding a bat flop-
ping on the ground is urged to be
very careful in capturing it. The
bat may be delivered to the Vet-
erinary Public Health Laboratory
at Corozal, or the Laboratory (Bal-
boa 4263) may be called to report
the presence of dead or dying bats
in the area.
While the presence of rabies in
bats has been known on the Isthmus
since 1959, transmission of the
disease to man has not occurred in
this area.

OCU FAIR TO OPEN
(Continued from p. 1)
Photo displays representing the
local Army, Navy, and Air Force
components will be provided by the
U.S. Southern Command. A con-
cert by the 776th U.S. Air Force
Band is scheduled and other enter-
tainment includes exhibitions of
skydiving and a kiddie jump tower
which will give children a simulated
parachute jump.
USIS will provide free movies
each night, including the Apollo 11
moon landing film, and will pre-
sent a display explaining USIS
operations and responsibilities in
Panama.
Ocu is only a 4-hour drive from
Panama City and Canal Zone res-
idents are encouraged to visit the
town during this colorful celebra-
tion.

The swimming competition will
include the 50-meter freestyle, 50-
meter breaststroke, 100-meter free-
style, 200-meter freestyle, 150-meter
medley relay, and 1 meter diving.

Scouts of America, will be open to

LITTLE THEATRE

ON FAMILY NIGHTS
Friday and Saturday, January 16
and 17, will be family nights at the
Cristobal Little Theatre in France
Field.
Two films that will delight chil-
dren and adults alike will be shown
beginning at 8 p.m. both nights.
Taken from the collection of Lou
Fattorosi, a teacher in the Cristobal
Junior-Senior High School, the films
will include a Charlie Chaplin
classic and a W. C. Fields finm. The
Chaplin film is scheduled for Friday
and the Fields movie for Saturday.
The charge will lbe 1 for adults
and 50 cents for children.


Police Chief

Urges Caution

Against Theft
Gaddis Wall, Chief, Police Divi-
sion, is advising all persons to exer-
cise extra measures-to guard against
theft.
Particular attention should be
taken by motorists who frequent
the Venado and Hide-A-Way
beaches. Thefts from vehicles park-
ed in these areas continue to be a
problem. Citizens who park their
cars in these isolated areas are
cautioned not to leave valuables ir,
their cars. Always lock your vehicle
and if you must leave valuables in
it, place them in the locked trunk.
Never leave valuable articles in
plain view of a passing pedestrian.
Last month six vehicles were
broken into and items stolen in the
area of Venado Beach and Hide-
A-Way Beach.
Parents are reminded to caution
their children about bicycle thefts.
Last month alone 19 bicycles were
stolen from the vicinity of the Bal-
boa Service Center. As a preventive
measure against such a theft, chil-
dren should always lock their bi-
cycles when they plan to leave
them parked for any length of time.
A great percentage of crimes
such as these could have been pre-
vented. Simple precautions taken
by citizens often discourages poten-
tial criminals. Any theft is a per-
sonal loss to the owner and puts an
extra burden on the police. The
police are required to spend a great
deal of their time investigating
thefts that could otherwise have
been prevented.
Eight bicycles were found aban-
doned during the Christmas holi-
days. Four of these bicycles have
been returned to the owners, and
four remain unclaimed at the Bal-
boa Police Station.
At present, there are 21 bicycles
at the Balboa Police Station which
have not been claimed by the
owners.
Since December 20, 1969, 19
bicycles have been reported stolen,
5 of which were recovered. Six
juveniles have been arrested by the
police for stealing bicycles during
this period.

bre de Guadalupe de Los Angeles,

De los 92 m6dicos en la Direc-
ci6n de Salubridad de la Zona del
Canal, el 75 por ciento esta apro-
bado por una junta medica o con
licencia de la misma, un promedio
significativamente mAs alto que el
encontrado en cualquier Area gran-
de metropolitan en los Estados
Unidos.
Esta alta proporci6n de indivi-
duos completamente adiestrados en
sus especialidades demuestra c6mo
han sido seleccionados cuidadosa-
mente los medicos con el fin de
proporcionar atenci6n m6dica so-
bresaliente a los residents locales.
Las juntas medicas han sido de-
sarrolladas para dar a los hospitals
y a la profesi6n medica un model
para juzgar la competencia de los
nmidicos en el desempefio de sus
especialidades. Hasta que se for-
maron esas juntas, no habia metodo
para evaluar las capacidades profe-
sionales de los facultativos indivi-
duales. Ahora es possible hacer citas
con el personal de hospital basAn-
dose meramente en la capacidad y
merito professional.
La inica diferencia entire un li-
cenciado por una junta y un medico
aprobado es que el m6dico licencia-
do ha tomado y pasado un examen
escrito u oral, o ambos, confeccio-
nado y presentado a 61 por un jura-
do examinador. El medico aprobado
por la junta, aunque esta igual-
mente adiestrado, por una raz6n u
otra, no ha tomado el examen.
Aqui en la Zona del Canal, donde
un significativo nfimero de m6dicos
no son ciudadanos de EE. UU.,
existen algunos casos en los que a
los facultativos, aunque completa-
mente preparados, no se les permit
tomar los exAmenes apropiados. En
campos en donde no se aplica esto,
sin embargo, los medicos que no son
(l-madanos de EE. UU. que traba-
jan en la Zona del Canal, han sido
licenciados por una junta.
Existen ahora en los Estados
Unidos 17 juntas especiales de cer-
tificaci6n reconocidas y 14 de estas
est'in representadas entire los m6di-
cos de la Direcci6n de Salubridad.

LUBRIDAD



Las unicas que no estAn representa-
das alli son en dermatologia, donde
existe un m6dico aprobado por una
junta que recientemente termin6
con 6xito la primera parte de su
examen; cirugia de neurologia, en
cuya especialidad no hay un medico
en el personal, pero se emplean los
servicios de un consultor en Pana-
ma, quien estA licenciado en esta
area; y cirugia rectal y del colon
que es practicada aqui por m6dicos
generals licenciados como se hace
en ]a mayor parte de los Estados
Unidos.

contrado el medio de lograr que su
mujer se concentre cuando maneja

Es Important

Usar Calzado

Fuera de Casa
Muchos de los que vivimos en el
tr6pico, entusiasmados por nuestro
tibio clima, echamos a un lado los
zapatos y andamos descalzos, sin
caer en cuenta de que nos expone-
mos a contraer muy facilmente la
anquilostomiasis. Un caso serio de
esta clase fue tratado recientemente
en el Hospital Gorgas.
Los anquilostomas son gusanos
redondos cuyos huevos son fecun-
dados fuera del cuerpo human en
suelo huimedo, sombrio, tibio y are-
noso, frecuentemente donde han
sido depositadas materials fecales.
Las larvas se alimentan de materials
organicas e infectan con facilidad
los pies y dedos de personas que
andan descalzas. Estos gusanos no
se quedan en el lugar por donde
entraron a la piel, sino que emi-
gran por todos los sistemas del
cuerpo hacia los intestines, donde
pueden permanecer sin ser descu-
blertos hasta por 5 afios o mas.
Los nifios infectados se ven re-
tardados mental y fisicamente.
Cualquiera persona infectada por
anquilostomas es portadora poten-
cial de la infecci6n, mientras la
tenga, y puede infectar el suelo
durante afios antes de que se le
oncuentre la enfermedad y reciba
tratamiento medico. Cuando en-
cuentran condiciones favorables, las
larvas infecciosas permanecen vivas
en el suelo durante varias semanas
en espera de una victim no pre-
cavida.
La Inejor manera de evitar esta
infecci6n es no andar descalzo fue-
ra de casa y ensefiar a los nifios la
importancia de usar calzado siem-
pre que se sale de la casa.

La Secci6n de Mercancias del
Centro de Servicios Comunales

La Sra. Lois M. de Garcia, sub-
jefe ayudante de personal en el
Edificio 366 de Anc6n, lleva 3 aimos
de pertenecer a la familiar canalera,
donde se la aprecia muchisimo de-
bido a su gran don de gentes y a
la gran eficiencia con que cumple
sus funciones, entire las que hasta
hace poco se encontr6 la de instruc-
tora de ingl6s para los empleados
de habla hispana. Su gran experien-
cia en este campo, adquirida du-
rante los afios en que fue profesora
del Instituto Panamericano de la
ciudad de PanamA, la convirti6 en
una de las instructors favorites de
*los empleados en adiestramiento
del Canal, quienes con todo carifio
se refieren a ella todavia como "la
Profesora".

Ya que hablamos de instructors
de idiomas del Canal de Panama,
les diremos que la contraparte en
la lengua de Cervantes de la Sra. de
Garcia es Carlos Garcia de Pare-
des, quien es instructor de castella-
no para los empleados que hablan
la lengua de Shakespeare. Lleva ya
various anos de desempefiar esas
funciones y los comentarios que se
escuchan acerca de su labor son
magnificos. Don Carlos, como se le
llama carifiosamente, es deportivo
ciento por ciento, desde la ropa
con que viste hasta el autom6vil
con que Ilega a su oficina en el
Edificio de Administraci6n en Bal-
boa Heights.

Recientemente vimos publicado
en la prensa local un articulo del
periodista deportivo colonense Ar-
nulfo Brunette en el que daba la
lista de los valores deportivos del
afo en la ciudad de Col6n, escogi-
dos por la Asociaci6n de Redacto-
res Deportivos en la ciudad Atlin-
tica. En el baloncesto femenino, el
valor deportivo del afio fue la Srta.
Alba Aciego. Es hija de Antonio
Aciego S., quien desde hace ya
bastante tiempo dirige a los mu-
chachos de la Imprenta del Canal
de Panamai que se encargan de
levantar cl material tipografico del
SPILLWAYV. iFelicitaciones Tony!

Y volviendo por los lados del Edi-
ficio 366 de Anc6n, donde funcio-
nan varias dependencias de la Di-
recci6n de Personal del Canal de
Panama, les diremos que alli tie-
nen la suerte de contar con una
simpAtica joven que toca muy bien
la guitarra, 1o que constitute una
bendici6n para las fiestas que orga-
nizan los integrantes de las dife-
rentes secciones. Ya se podran

Nuevamente hemos visto al es-
pigado Jaime O. Mendoza por los
lados del Edificio de Administra-
ci6n de Balboa Heights. S61o que
el muchacho ahora se ve much
mas serio. Es padre de familiar y
eso significa much. Presta servicio
en la Secci6n de Cuentas Genera-
les (Libros Mayores) de la Conta-
duria del Canal. No sabemos c6mo
hace, pero con todos los traslados
que ha tenido, siempre le ha to-

El Jefe Wall ...
(Viene de la pdgina 1)
recuerda que deben precaver a sus
hijos sobre el robo de bicicletas.
Durante el mes pasado, nada inas,
fueron robadas 19 bicicletas en el
area del Centro de Servicios Co-
inunales de Balboa. Coino media
preventive contra tales robos, los
nifios deben acostumbrarse a dejar
sus bicicletas con candado siempre
que las estacionen.
Un gran porcentaje de estos eri-
menes pudieron evitarse. Las sim-
ples precauciones que tomen los
ciudadanos, con frecuencia desani-
man a los criminals en potencia.
Todo robo es una perdida para el
duefio y trabajo extra para la poli-
cia, que tiene que gastar conside-
rable tiempo investigando robos
que pudieron ser evitados.
"Si la policia y los ciudadanos
cooperan, tales problemaas pueden
ser disminuidos", seioal6 el Jefe
Wall, agregando: "Cuando los ciu-
dadanos ponen en practice medi-
das preventivas, dejan tiempo libre
a la policia para dedicarlo a pro-
blemas mis series sobre el cumpli-
miento de las leyes".
Desde el 20 de diciembre, se ha
informado de 19 robos de bicicle-
tas, 5 de las cuales fueron recupe-
radas. Seis j6venes han sido arres-
tados por rolar bicicletas durante
ese period. En la Policia de Balboa
se encuentran 21 bicicletas que no
han sido reclamadas.
