THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal Museum
THE PANAMA CANAL Friday, April 10, 1

Vol. VIII, No. 43 More Than 55 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, April 10, 1970

1st Public Service Award

Presented by Gov. Leber

Samuel Israel, a 39-year-old
Panamanian, became the first per-
son to receive the Panama Canal
organization's new Honorary Public
Service Award.
The award, the highest the Canal
can give a private citizen, was pre-
sented recently by Gov. W. P. Leber
in the board room of the Adminis-
tration Building in recognition of a
heroic deed in preventing a possible
catastrophe on the Panama Railroad.
A medallion, which accompanies
the public service award, will be
given Israel later.
In addition to the award, Israel
was given a lifetime pass on the
Panama Railroad by Donald R.
Brayton, Manager of the Railroad
Division. Governor Leber then gave
special recognition by authorizing
transfer of the title to the land
lease property, where Israel lives
with his grandparents, to his name
upon the death of his grandparents.
The action for which Israel was
honored occurred January 27 when
he discovered a rock slide on the
Panama Railroad tracks about a
mile north of Pedro Miguel. The
slide contained rocks large enough
to cause a serious railroad accident.
Knowing that the 5 a.m. north-
bound passenger train was due in
Pedro Miguel soon, he left the
tracks, hurried to the road, and
flagged down a bus. Arriving at the
Pedro Miguel Station just as the
train was about to depart, he alerted
the police who in turn notified the
engineer, who delayed the train
until the rocks were removed.
It was judged that, because of
his quick thinking and prompt
action, a possible loss of life and
property was avoided.
Israel is a well known and well
liked member of the Paraiso and
Pedro Miguel communities. Since
1951 when he was graduated from
the former La Boca Vocational
High School, he has made his home
on the land lease property north of
Pedro Miguel where he cares for

The honorary public service award
was added to the Incentive Awards
Program last October when the
program was overhauled and ex-
tended to areas not previously
covered. It consists of a certificate
with the pictures of the President
of the United States and the Gov-
ernor of the Canal Zone and is
accompanied by a bronze, silver, or
gold medal, depending on the grade
of the award.


Efforts Stepped

Up by PanCanal
Additional equipment similar to
that being used in Cristobal harbor
to clean up oil spills, may be pur-
chased in the United States by
the Panama Canal Marine Bureau,
as part of its continuing effort to
keep oil pollution in Canal Zone
waters to a minimum.
Outstanding success has been
reported in Cristobal through the
use of a skimmer pump which
pumps a mixture of oil and water
into an oil-water separator. The
device was developed by John J.
Herring, Assistant to Chief, Navi-
gation Division. Herring expects to
go to the United States during this
month to look over oil spill recovery
equipment and investigate the latest
developments in the nation-wide
effort to fight oil pollution at U.S.
harbors and seashores.
It is expected that when new
equipment is received, another ma-
chine will be placed in operation in
Cristobal and one will be brought
to Balboa. Efforts also are being
made to devise methods of cleaning
up oil spills in the vicinity of Gail-
lard Cut and the Panama Canal
Cristobal was chosen as the site
for the initial oil spill recovery
efforts, since a major part of the
ship bunkering done by the Panama
Canal is carried out in that port.
Recently, an oil spill reporting
service was set up by the Marine
Bureau. Capt. A. L. Gallin, Marine
Director, announced that anyone
seeing oil spillage in Canal Zone
waters, is asked to report it by
calling Balboa 2444 or Cristobal
1686, so that the matter can be in-
vestigated by the Navigation Divi-
sion. In addition to these numbers,
oil spillage can be reported to the
Terminals Division by calling the
Foreman-in-Charge, Oil Handling
Plant at Balboa 1518 or Cristobal

Photo Centerspread
The centerfold of this week's
issue of SPILLWAY, is devoted to a
selection of photographs taken dur-
ing a picnic held by Gov. W. P.
Leber for the Canal Zone Youth
Formed earlier this year to pro-
mote better understanding between
the administration and Canal Zone
youth, the Council includes student
members from junior and senior
high schools, Canal Zone College,
and from apprentice groups.

May 15.
No physical examination will be

By Emily J. Pric

Ranches and Ranch Life in Amer-
ica by Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., is
a magnificent book illustrating with
wonderful pictures the story of
ranching. The text is concise and
to the point, letting the photographs
absorb the reader. Cowboys rodeos,
cattle ranches, horse ranches, all
are covered and also sheep, hogs,
goats, and even mules. Photographs
identify every important livestock
breed in the country, giving its
background and origin. Famous
race horse farms are included and

Harriette Arnow's new novel The

in an affluent Detroit suburb. It

Angell, Pearl, and Little God by
Winston Graham is, in spite of the
unattractive title, a very good novel,
probably the author's best so far.
The characters are Wilfred Angell,
a stout, well-to-do but stingy, col-
lector of art who marries Pearl, a
pretty, but not too bright shop-
girl. Little God (short for Godfrey
Brown) is a tough, scrappy little

Balboa Theater

To Show Film

On Christianity

"For Pete's Sake," a film on the
day to day questions and answers
about Christianity today, will be
shown at the Canal Zone theaters
beginning with a premier showing
at the Balboa Theater, Saturday,
April 11.
The comedy-drama, produced by
World Wide Pictures and starring
Robert Sampson and Pippa Scott, is
sponsored locally by the Pacific
Religious Workers Association. Pro-
duced in wide screen and color, the
film tells the story of Pete Harper,
his wife and son who got more than
they bargained for from listening to
a sermon by Billy Graham.
"For Pete's Sake," is a love story,
a comedy, and a life-sized look at
the ups and downs of the faith of
a 20th century man as he meets the
challenges of Christian commit-
ment in day to day living. Mile high
Denver is the setting, with the
magnificent backdrop of the Rockies.
Robert Sampson also starred in
"World Wide's "The Restless Ones,"
which is still playing to capacity
audiences throughout the world.
Pippa Scott is well known for her
appearances on Broadway and tele-
vision shows. Al Freeman, Jr., who
was seen in Golden Boy recently,
and John Milford, who appears in
"Get Smart," "Perry Mason," and
other well-known TV shows, have
supporting roles in this beautiful
story of men and women moved by
the message of Christianity.

To boys, boys become men at 15.
To fathers, boys become men at
To girls, boys become men at 18.
To the draft board, boys become
men at 19.
To politicians, boys become men
at 21.
To mothers, boys become men at
To wives, boys remain boys.

check for $300 for his part in assum-
ing control of the tug "Hugh Rod-
man" at a time of emergency when
the tug's master was incapacitated
and human life was in danger were
presented to Keith E. Lippincott,
senior chief engineer aboard the
"Rodman" by Capt. A. L. Gallin,
Marine Director. The letter com-
mended Lippincott on his compe-
tent and appropriate action which

Annual Flower Festival

Being Held in Boquete

The Panama Canal organization,
the U.S. Armed Forces in the Canal
Zone, and the U.S. Information
Service are participating in the
festival of flowers being held in the
picturesque town of Boquete in the
highlands of Chiriqui Province.
The Canal exhibit consists mainly
of a photographic display of the
various operations of the Panama
Canal and points of interests in
the Canal Zone such as Summit
The well-known U.S. Air Force
Band from the U.S. Armed Forces
Southern Command is giving con-
certs in the main plaza of the town
of Boquete.
The USIS display includes a
mobile unit showing films of the
United States space programs.

Orchid Society

To Hold Exhibit

The Canal Zone Orchid Society
will hold an exhibit of native and
hybrid varieties of orchids at the
Jewish Welfare Board Sunday, from
2 to 8 p.m. Orchid arrangements
also will be on display. Corsages of
orchids will be given to the ladies
attending the exhibit as long as the
supply lasts.
The public is invited and admis-
sion is free.

1970 Census

To Begin in

C.Z. April 15

The 1970 census will begin on
April 15 in the Canal Zone. On that
day census enumerators will start
visiting Canal Zone households. It
is expected that it will take 2 to 3
weeks to enumerate all households.
The enumerators will seek the
answers to a series of questions on
each household. In addition, they
will ask a series of questions per-
taining to each person in the house-
Canal Zone residents are asked to
cooperate with the census enumera-
tors so the enumeration can be com-
pleted as quickly and accurately as

The flower festival began April 2
and will continue until April 12. It
is a highlight of the year in Boquete
where the climate, at an altitude of
approximately 3,000 feet, lends it-
self to the cultivation of all types
of flowers, both tropical and semi-
In addition to the display of
flowers, which are shown in bloom
in the various gardens, there is a
flower show and a national horti-
culture products competition.
Since various fruits, such as Bo-
quete oranges and strawberries are
nationally known products of this
region, there are preserves of both
tropical and cold climate fruits on
sale. The fair is held mainly, how-
ever, to promote the sale of flowers
of this region and make them better
known to other parts of Panama.
Boquete is reached by a good
road from David and there are ade-
quate accommodations for visitors.
There are three hotels and several
excellent small inns.

Councils Invited To Present

Suggestions to Budget Group

Gov. W. P. Leber has suggested
that U.S. Civic Councils join forces
and give a presentation on housing
and other pertinent matters to a
Panama Canal budget committee
which will convene here in May.
The Budget and Finance Com-
mittee of the Panama Canal Board
of Directors will study the 1971
fiscal year budget during the latter
part of next month.
The Governor's recommendation,
made during last week's executive
session of the U.S. Civic Councils,
was prompted during a discussion
of fire safety measures in Panama
Canal housing.
Following several months of
study, it was determined that the
installation of steel stair escapes on
two-story frame quarters would be
extremely expensive and also would
reduce the security against burglars.
For these reasons, fire escapes
would not be feasible. Sprinkler
systems have been installed in multi-
family buildings over stairways and
have proved adequate, officials said.
The Canal organization will pro-
vide additional sprinkler systems for
frame duplexes similar to those in
multifamily quarters.
Dr. Teodoro Arias, first vice
president of the Pacific Civic Coun-
cil, stated that fire extinguishers
located in the buildings could not
be used for grease or electrical fires
and that they gave a "false sense of
security." The Governor said the
fire extinguisher situation would be

The Canal Zone Selective Service
Office, 2d floor of the Diablo
Heights Service Center, will be
closed to the public all day each
Tuesday beginning April 14.
The one day closing has been
authorized by Selective Service offi-
cials in Washington as a means for
offices in the United States and
abroad to handle the backlog of
work caused by the recent changes
in the draft law.

Citizenship Hearings

Will Begin Monday

William T. Jarmon, of the U.S.
Immigration and Naturalization
Service, will hold citizenship hear-
ings in the Canal Zone April 13
through April 24.
Approximately 160 citizenship
certificates are expected to be issued
during Jarmon's 2-week visit to the
Isthmus. Jarmon will meet with
applicants who have been notified
by the New Orleans office con-
cerning the time and place of their
As in past years, Atlantic side
hearings will be conducted in the
Cristobal Customs office at the Ter-
minals Building. Pacific side hear-
ings will be conducted at the Canal
Zone Emergency Operations Center
at Sosa Hill and Roosevelt Avenue.
Adequate parking facilities will be
available across the street and a
large sign will be displayed to mark
the center during the hearings.
B. G. Sanders, Jr., Chief, Cus-
toms Division, stated that Pacific
side residents received letters from
New Orleans stating the place for
hearings will be Building 5534, the
Old Diablo Heights Elementary

School, where hearings were held
in the past. Sanders said that the
location was changed after the
notification letters were sent and
emphasized that all Pacific side
applicants having appointments
should go to the operations center
and not to Building 5534 as the
letters state.

Final Baseball Tryouts
To Be Held Tomorrow
The Canal Zone American Legion
Baseball League will hold final try-
outs at 9 a.m. tomorrow, at the
Balboa Railroad Station Fields.
Boys born between August 1,
1951, and July 31, 1955, and who
are attending or have graduated
from U.S. Canal Zone Schools are
eligible to compete.
Those players who played last
year and who are eligible to play
this year are requested to come out
and register.
For additional information, call
R. S. Brogie, Balboa 3121, or J. A.
Brigman, Balboa 4252.

Floyd Holland, president of the
Gamboa Civic Council, said the
apparent fire hazards and the diffi-
culty in protection against fires
within dwellings could be a help in
getting new housing. Governor
Leber then suggested that the Civic
Councils make a joint presentation
to the Budget committee.
Atlantic side residents who have
difficulty in getting paychecks
cashed may get some relief. The
Governor said plans were underway
to improve the check cashing cap-
abilities at Margarita. He said large
amounts of cash were not kept on
hand because of robbery possibili-
ties but that the situation would
get better.
Capt. Frederick Hoppe, president
of the Cristobal-Margarita-Brazos
Heights Civic Council, said At-
lantic residents have asked that a
bank be encouraged to open a
branch in the Cristobal area of the
Canal Zone. The Governor said such
a move may not be possible.
Areas for Canal Zone motor-
cyclists to race are being sought
throughout the Canal Zone, Gov-
ernor Leber told council members.
Luke Palumbo, second vice presi-
dent of the Coco Solo Civic Coun-
cil, asked that the racetrack behind
Pier 16 in Cristobal be used for the
cyclists. The Governor said various
areas were being studied for possible
use by motorcycle drivers and said
another likely area was behind the
Civil Affairs Building in Ancon.
Cyclists have used the hilly area
on the west side of the Canal across
from Miraflores Locks but have
been chased away by Canal Zone
police, said Douglas C. Schmidt,
second vice president of the Pacific
Civic Council. He asked whether
this site, where the cyclists also
teach other persons to ride the
machines, would be acceptable.
Assistant chief of the Executive
Planning Staff, F. R. Johnson, said
Canal Zone police had the matter of
sites under advisement and a study
was being made for a motorcycle
range north of Fort Clayton.
If teenagers under 17 cannot
attend adult rated movies, why
should they have to pay adult rates
once they reach 12, asked Schmidt.
He said the question was put to him
by a Canal Zone family who
asked that it be brought up at the
executive session.
Governor Leber, in answer to a
question by Dr. Byron Efthimiadis,
representative of the Ancon-Balboa
Heights, Pacific Civic Council, said
X-rated movies would not be shown
at Panama Canal theaters. Such
films, restricted to persons 21 years
old and over, are available in Pan-
ama City, said the Governor, adding
that he has not had any requests to
bring them into the Canal Zone.
Dr. Efthimiadis emphasized that he
was not asking that they be shown,
but was merely asking whether or
not they could be.
Captain Hoppe presented a pro-
posal from the Cristobal-Margarita-
Brazos Heights Civic Council that
a non-profit corporation entitled the
Coco Solo Hospital Board be
assigned as agent or concessionaire
to operate the Coco Solo Hospital
which is scheduled to be renovated
and restructured. The board would
assume the responsibility for pro-
viding medical services, including
selection and training of personnel,
maintenance, establishing rates, and
receiving and dispursing of funds
subject to audits by the Panama
Canal comptroller. The proposal

also called for a subsidy from the
Canal organization.
Governor Leber said he hoped
that something could be worked
out, including a subsidy. He ex-
plained, however, that such a plan
had far reaching aspects and there
were many problems to be solved
before such a plan could be put
into effect.
Other subjects discussed included:
increasing the use of shipboard
containers to bring goods, such as
furniture, into the Isthmus to re-
duce damage and pilferage; pro-
v:ding courtesy awards for service
personnel; U.S. voting rights for
Canal Zone residents; oil pollution;
counselors for problem juveniles;
shortage of potable water, and
putting adult supervisors on certain
elementary schoolbuses.

a pesar de que su familiar y todos
sus hermanos usan el apellido Caza-
b6n. De ello pueden dar testimonio
los miles de amigos que la familiar
Cazab6n tiene en PanamA.
Felipe tuvo una magnifica actua-
