Vol. IX, No. 17 More Than 56 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, October 9, 1970



Malaria has declined dramatically
in the Canal Zone this year with
only 46 cases reported from Jan-
uary through September. This com-
pares to a total of 124 cases reported
for the same period last year. Of
the 46 cases reported, 9 were Canal
Zone employees, compared to 29 for
the same period in 1969.
Thirty of this year's 46 cases in-
volved people whose homes are out-
side the Canal Zone while 84 of the
1969 cases were in this category.
The largest activity for the pre-
vention of malaria in the Canal Zone
is performed by the Division of
Sanitation labor gangs which clean
the drainage ditches surrounding
Canal Zone townsites and facilities
to prevent the breeding of mos-
quitoes. They also apply larvicides
daily to bodies of water which
cannot be drained, filled, or other-
wise eliminated.
The mosquito exterminator is a
keyman in this operation because
it is his responsibility to survey areas
each day for bodies of water which
need larviciding. He checks for mos-
quitoes in his entire district each
week, an important function when
daily rains continue to provide new
breeding sources for mosquitoes.
The Canal Zone control activities
continue to include surveillance of
land licensees in jungle areas by
taking blood samples every 3 months
to check for malaria and to make
sure that treatment is available when

Canal Duties

End for Tug

Gulf Raider
The Gulf Raider, a sturdy 2,200
hp. tug that has been doing a man
sized job in the harbors of Balboa
and Cristobal since February 1968,
will return to her home port of New
Orleans in mid-October.
The tug is being relieved of duty
in Panama Canal waters following
the arrival here of the Chester Hard-
ing, one of three new tugs being
constructed for the Panama Canal
at Slidell, La., by the Southern
Shipbuilding Co. The other two are
due in November and December.
While the Gulf Raider was char-
tered from the Gulf Mississippi
Corp. of New Orleans in 1968 to
help move heavy ship traffic in Cris-
tobal Harbor and the Atlantic side
Canal area, she was soon moved to
Balboa. The little craft has been
used for all types of work, including
the towing of the disabled passenger
ships Tahiti and the Fairsea which
became completely disabled follow-
ing fires in the engineroom.
The tug has been operated on an
8-hour a day schedule in conjunc-
tion with the regular Panama Canal
Navigation Division tugs. She was
built in 1967 by Baker Barge Co. of
Louisiana and is owned by Hunter
& Petre of New Orleans.
The Gulf Raider will return to
New Orleans under the command of
Capt. Junius Chauvin and will re-
join a fleet of 21 tugs working off
the gulf coast for the Gulf Missis-
sippi Corp. (See photo on p. 4.)

Frederick S. Brown, Jr., who was recently awarded the Eagle Scout badge
at a ceremony held at the American Legion, uses the candle symbolizing
scouting to light the 12 candles representing the 12 Scout laws and three
points of the Scout oath. Frederick, 16, is a junior at Balboa High School
and a member of Troop No. 3, Balboa, which is sponsored by the American
Legion. For his Eagle Scout project, he cleaned up vacant lots in the city
of Grecley, Colo., in the beautifying and environmental cleanup campaign
in that area. He also was a member of the Order of the Arrow in Boy Scouts
in Greeley. His father is a teacher at Balboa High School.

Panama Retirement Plan

Incentives Explained

The Republic of Panama is offer-
ing incentives to persons interested
in retiring in the Republic of Pan-
ama. A recent cabinet decree pro-
posed by the Panama Institute of
Tourism and approved by Provi-
sional President Demetrio B. Lakas
and members of the cabinet applies
to all foreigners who are retired or
pensioned by Governments, interna-
tional agencies, private companies,
or persons who have retired from
private activities.
Retirees wishing to establish res-
idence in Panama will be issued a
special "retiree-tourist" visa author-
izing indefinite residence in the
country. A normal tourist visa is
valid for 30 days and is renewable
up to 90 days only. No deposit or
fee of any kind will be required to
obtain the retiree-tourist visa.
Other incentives established by
the decree are a once-a-year exemp-

tion for importing into the country,
duty-free, one motor vehicle for
personal use, and a one-time exemp-
tion from payment of duties on up
to $5,000 worth of household goods
or other articles for personal use.
Exemption from inheritance taxes
will be granted also.
Once the retiree-tourist visa is
granted, the retiree must certify
annually before the Panama Insti-
tute of Tourism that his income con-
tinues to be the same or has in-
creased in relation to the amount
originally stated in the application
to IPAT. If the income has de-
creased, IPAT will notify the Min-
istry of Government and Justice
which can cancel the respective visa
if it finds that it merits doing so.
If the sources of income have
changed or have been replaced by
others of equal or greater value, the

The Canal Zone Civilian Per-
sonnel Policy Coordinating Board
has announced the elimination of
the requirement that employees pass
the Federal Service Entrance Exam-
ination (FSEE) for promotion, re-
assignment, transfer, reinstatement,
or other in service placement into
occupations for which the test is
now required.
The FSEE may still be used as a
ranking device for in service place-
ment actions, but not as a barrier
to placement.
Merit promotion plans which re-
quire passing of the FSEE for pro-
motion into certain occupations will
be revised accordingly.
This policy change is being made
by all Canal Zone Federal agencies
no later than November 1. However.
agencies have been authorized to
discontinue use of the FSEE as a
hurdle for in service placement. The
Canal organization's date of imple-
mentation of the policy change was
October 5.
There is no change in policy for
competitive appointments into occu-
pations requiring the FSEE: Thus,
an applicant seeking Federal em-
ployment for the first time, or one
who otherwise does not have em-
ployment status, must still pass the

Canal Zone residents are being
given a pat on the back by Panama
Canal officials for their cooperation
during the recent water shortage.
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau records show that residents
used 40 percent less water during
the critical period than normally
used for the same days. Officials
said the reduction was due to vol-
untary cooperation.
The reduction in' water pressure
last Sunday and part of Monday was
necessitated by an oil spill in Gail-
lard Cut near the Paraiso raw water
intake line which feeds the main
pumping station.
The Paraiso plant was shut down
when the spill was discovered early

"Golden Isthmus"

To Be Shown at

Balboa Theater
"The Golden Isthmus," a 50-min-
ute technicolor film, produced and
narrated by David Howarth, author
of the book by the same name, will
be shown at the Balboa Theater,
October 21 and 22 at 5 p.m. The
show will be preceded by a short
color cartoon.
While gathering material for his
book, Howarth traveled widely in
the jungles of Darien, camped on
the deserted site of the Scottish
colony, explored the ruins of Spanish
settlements and lived with the Cuna
Indians, the people who guided Bal-
boa across the Isthmus. This film
covers his visits to these areas where
standing on historic sites, he narrates
the history of the Isthluus from the
time of Balboa to the present day by
day operation of the Panama Canal.
The show, which is presented
by the Panama Canal Information
Office, is open to the public. There
is no admission charge.

7,000 Signatures

On VFW Petition

More than 7,000 Canal Zone em-
ployees have signed petitions as part
of a nation-wide Veterans of Foreign
Wars drive asking for better treat-
ment of United States prisoners of
war held by the Viet Cong and
North Vietnamese.
Commander John Haner of the
VFW Post 3822, Curundu, ex-
pressed gratitude to the persons who
signed the petitions. Post 3822 is
the unit that headed the Canal Zone
drive. Some 2 million signatures
were sought by the VFW in the

Little Theatre

Names Cast for

Water Comedy

The Cristobal Little Theatre
announces that its next production
You Know I Can't Hear You When
The Water's Running was cast fol-
lowing two evenings in one of its
most responsive tryouts in the
Theatre's history.
While the production calls only
for a cast of five to portray the
various characters in the four one
acts, a cast of 13 was selected-an
actor to portray each character-
because of the enthusiastic turnout.
Both veteran actors and new faces
have been selected to fill the roles
in the mature comedy written by
Robert Anderson.
Named to play the four characters
of the first one act, "The Shock of
Recognition," are veteran-actors
Surse Pierpoint, cast as the brash
producer Herb Miller; Trevor Si-
mons as the waning, over-eager
actor Jack Pawling; Ada Favorite as
the Bennington girl; and Bill Meti-
vier as the quiet, intellectual play-
wright Jack Barnstable.
The Theatre's president Ron Nel-
son is teamed with Esther Bell for
the first time since their memorable
performance in The Owl And The
Pussycat as the attractive middle
aged couple in The Footsteps of
Doves. They are supported by new-
comers Carl Nugent as the salesman
and theatre major Barbara Percusse
as Jill.
Susie Adema remembered by
local theatergoers as Eliza Doolittle
in the United Fund's 1967 hit My
Fair Lady stars as Edith Berringer
in "I'll Be Home For Christmas."
Appearing opposite Mrs. Adema is
newcomer Roger Kovach as Chuck
Berringer. Their daughter, Clarice,
will be portrayed by Dale McGowen
also making her first appearance for
the Cristobal Little Theatre.
The charming elderly couple in the
fourth act, "I'm Herbert," will be
played by the husband-wife team of
Jim and Fannie Dandridge. Fannie
just scored a success in the Little
Theatre's recent musical Once Upon
A Mattress.
Water is being directed by Bruce
Quinn who has produced or directed
a series of the Isthmian theater hits.
Water opens at the France Field
playhouse November 13 for a two
weekend run.

Mrs. Wick: A Woman of Two V

Mrs. Robert C. Wick
prepares for surgery
There is a vast difference between
the tense, subdued world of the
operating room and the world of
the matted gym where grunting,
kimonoed figures attack each other
in feigned brutality. Yet there is a
great similarity-dedication and the
skill that comes with thorough
Mrs. Robert C. Wick (Marie)
Operating Room Nurse at the Coco
Solo Hospital is adept in both
worlds. This petite, skilled nurse,
when off duty, metamorphoses into
a serious athlete who holds a Black
Belt in Judo.
Marie's judo career started in
1964 when her husband, Robert
Wick, who was Program Director
at the Balboa YMCA, persuaded her
to enroll in the Judo Class. As
Marie says, "He literally took me to
the mat by the hand." Bob's interest
and enthusiasm for the sport-al-

though he does not participate in
judo himself because of duty sched-
ules-encouraged Marie through the
early training.
She first enrolled in the Canal
Zone Judo Club at the Balboa
YMCA in May, but after only 1
month went on leave. With leave
over, Marie was back at the gym
practicing. Despite a newly acquired
zeal however, a second interruption
to classes came when her instructor
found out that Marie was 4 months
In 1965 a daughter, Caroline, was
born. Five weeks later, Mrs. Wick
was back in class. During this time
her husband's attention and help
encouraged her to continue. By the
end of 1965, she had graduated
from a beginners White Belt to the
more advanced Green Belt.
The art of judo demands balance,
attention, and precise coordination.
It is more than just throwing an
opponent on the mat-or being
thrown, depending on one's luck.
There is the difficult mastery of the
complicated KATA, or Prearranged
Exercises and Techniques. Among
these are: Throwing and Sacrifice,
Naga-no-kata; Defense-Attack, Ju-
no-kata; and Mat Techniques, Kata-
me-no-taka. Additionally one must
learn a variety of throws (Tachi-
waza), chokes (Shimewaza), arm
locks (Kensetsuwaza), and hold
downs (Osaekomiwaza). To make it
more difficult, the exercises and
techniques must be learned by their
Japanese names.
Advancement in judo comes
through study and hard physical
work. For Marie the months from
May 1966 to May 1967 were de-
voted to learning and mastering the
Sankyu, Nikyu, and Ikkyu degrees
of the Brown Belt. All these degrees
precede the Black Belt.
In early 1968 Bob was transferred
to Cristobal and the Wicks moved

to Brazos Heights. Shortly after-
wards Marie was stricken with men-
ingitis and taken to Coco Solo Hos-
pital. Her husband was advised of
the seriousness of her illness and
warned that she might not recover.
Marie is sure that her physical
conditioning, tenacity, and the will
to win, learned in judo class, helped
her recovery.
To this day she firmly believes
that her judo experience was a
dominant factor in her eventual safe
release from the hospital. But her
recovery and later recuperation were
a long process. She was not able to
return to the judo mat for almost
a year.
When the Wicks moved to the
Atlantic side there was no judo pro-
gram. Bob and Marie initiated the
program through the Cristobal
YMCA and members of this pro-
gram later formed the Atlantic Isth-
mian Judo Association with Marion
Green, president.
Finally, in May 1970, Marie was
ready for her Black Belt examina-
tion. It was in two parts-a written
exam and practical judo demonstra-
tions. Marie was tested by the
holder of a 5th degree Black Belt of
Japan and Mike Smith, a 3d degree
Black Belt and a member of the
Canal Zone Judo Club.
The written exam took Marie
3 hours to complete and she then
had to demonstrate over 100 throws,
chokes, arm locks, and other tech-
niques. With the successful comple-
tion of this rigorous test, she was
awarded the Shodan or 1st degree
Black Belt (there are three degrees
for women and six degrees for men)
and her rank was registered at Ko-
dokan "Home of Judo" Japan by the
Canal Zone Judo Club, member
club of the Judo Black Belt Asso-
ciation or Shufu Judo Yudanshaki.
Mrs. Wicks drive and proficiency
impressed Robert U. Schultz, pres-
ident of the Canal Zone Judo Club,

and he recommended her for a
"Scholarship on Merit" to attend the
training camp of the U.S. Judo Asso-
ciation at Washington, D.C. In
August 1970, she attended the camp
run by the U.S. Gold Medal Olym-
pic winners, for 10 days.
Here her proficiency paid off
again. Of five women attending
the camp Marie was the only one
to be awarded the Shodan from the
U.S. Judo Association.
It is difficult to believe that this
ebullient, professional nurse has
such lethal abilities-she's shy about
these accomplishments. Marie says
of all this. "I love Judo. It's a way
of life." She says also that age
makes no difference; a woman of
18, 38, 48, or 58 can accomplish
adequate skills in Judo.
Marie is always mindful of her
profession. She graduated from
nursing school at the Presbyterian
Hospital at Philadelphia, Pa., and

At the present time she is teach-
ing judo at night in the Cristobal

Kadets, 6 to 12 years; Teens, 13 to

Marie's enthusiasm has taken hold
of her two young sons. Andy, age

already been in judo.
When asked what was her proud-

shouting, 'Mom, I won a promotion

the Gamboa raw water intake which
could supply only % of the potable
water demand.
Cleanup operations began at mid-

daylight Monday until the oil had
been removed from the area. Booms
were used to sweep the oil south
and water was spilled through
Pedro Miguel Locks to induce a
southerly current.
The cut was essentially clear of
oil at 6 a.m., Monday, with only
mop-up operations necessary. A sec-

culverts of Pedro Miguel completed
the clean up.

Christmas Mailing Tips

Offered by Postal Division

There are 76 days until Christmas.
This may seem a long time to the
kids counting the days until the
arrival of Santa Claus but it is not
too early to start thinking about the
wrapping and mailing of Christmas
The Director of Posts reminds res-
idents of the Canal Zone of sugges-
tions which will aid in the delivery
of their letters, Christmas cards, and
a. The use of correct addresses
including house numbers, apartment
numbers, and ZIP Codes on all mail-
ings to insure accuracy in distribu-
tion and delivery.
b. The use of First-Class postage
on Christmas cards. Even though
the single piece rate for Third-Class
is the same as the First-Class rate,
there are advantages in sending
cards weighing more than 1 ounce
by First Class.
c. The use of insurance, registry,
certified mail, special delivery, and
special handling for protection and
d. Enclosing a slip of paper in
each parcel listing the contents and
name and address of mailer and
addressee, in case outside wrapper
is detached.
e. All articles should be packed
in boxes of wood, metal, solid fiber-
board or strong double face cor-
rugated fiberboard. All fiberboard
boxes should be securely wrapped
in heavy paper which strengthens
the package. The box should be
well tied with strong cord. Sufficient
cushioning material should be used
to prevent rattling of articles in the
package. Boxes are apt to be crushed
unless tightly filled. A pasteboard
shoebox is not an acceptable con-
tainer. Customs declarations com-
pleted by the sender are required
on parcels.
f. Addresses must be legible and
complete and should be typewritten
or in pen and ink. APO, FPO, or
ZIP Code must be shown on all
g. Parcels accepted for mailing
cannot exceed 70 pounds in weight
and must not exceed 100 inches in
length and girth.
h. Persons who plan to send Bona
Fide Gifts to the United States
under the U.S. Customs regulation
which permits such gifts up to $10
in value to enter free of duty are
reminded that they must mark each
package, "Bona Fide Gift-Not
Exceeding $10."
i. U.S. Customs regulations per-

mit the placing of gifts for several
individuals in one parcel and ad-
dressing the parcel to one consignee
provided that:
Each parcel enclosed in the larger
parcel is separately wrapped with
the name and address of the in-
tended recipient and endorsed
"Bona Fide Gift-Not Exceeding
The large parcel will be endorsed
on the address side as to the num-
ber of Bona Fide Gifts enclosed,
each not exceeding $10.
j. Prohibited articles. In addition
to articles nonnaly prohibited in the
mail, matches of all kinds, and
lighter fluid may not be mailed to
overseas military addresses. Ciga-
rettes, other tobacco products,
coffee, and various other items are
prohibited in parcels addressed to
some military post offices (check
with your Postmaster).
The following Christmas mailing
dates for mail originating in the
Canal Zone should be followed:
Surface mail-Overseas (including
APO's) now to November 1; United
States, November 1 to November 26.
Airmail Overseas (including
APO's) December 1 to Decem-
ber 10; United States, December 8

con csta decision.
Este cambio estA siendo hecho
por todas las agencies Federales de
la Zona del Canal, a mAs tardar, a
partir del 19 de noviembre de 1970.
Sin embargo, se ha autorizado a las
agencies a descontinuar el uso del
FSEE como obsticulo para ascender
a alguien, a partir del 19 de octubre
de 1970. La fecha en que la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal ha puesto en
vigor dicho cambio en las normas de
ascensos y traslados fue el 5 de
octubre de 1970.
No hay cambio en las normas para
los nombramientos por oposici6n en
puestos que requieren el FSEE. Por
lo tanto, un interesado en busca de
un puesto Federal por primera vez
u otra persona que no est6 empleada
al present, debe aprobar el FSEE
antes de ser colocado en el registro
de quienes son elegibles para ocu-
paciones que requieren ese examen.
Este cambio, anunciado por la
Junta de Personal de la Zona del

cientemente por la Comisi6n del

todos los envios con el fin de garan-
tizar una distribuci6n y entrega co-
b. El uso del correo de Primera
Clase para las tarjetas de Navidad.
A pesar de que la tarifa de una sola
pieza para Tercera Clase es la mis-
ma que la de Primera Clase, tiene
sus ventajas enviar por Primera Cla-
se las tarjetas que pesen mas de 1
c. El uso de seguro, registro, co-
rrio certificado, entrega especial y
manejo especial para protecci6n y
d. Incluir en cada encomienda
una list del contenido y direcci6n
del que envia el paquete y del des-
tinatario, en caso de que se caiga la
cubierta exterior.
e. Todos los articulos deberan es-
tar empacados en cajas de madera,
dte metal, de plancha de fibra s6lida
o de fuerte plancha double corrugada
de fibra. Todas las cajas de tabla de
fibra deberan star bien envueltas
en papel grueso lo cual da mas con-
sistencia al paquete. Las cajas debe-
ran estar bien atadas con cordel fuer-
te. Debera colocarse suficiente ma-
terial acolchonador para evitar que
los articulos esten sueltos dentro del
paquete. Las cajas, a no ser que
esten bien apretadas por dentro,
pueden quedar aplastadas. Una ca-
jeta de cart6n para zapatos no cons-
tituye un recipient acceptable. En
las encomiendas se require que el

que los envia llene una declaraci6n
de aduana.
f. Las direcciones deberin ser le-
gibles y completes y estar escritas a
miquina o con tinta. En toda clase
de correo deberi ponerse las claves

El Gulf Raider se Retira

Despues de Gran Servicio

El Gulf Raider, un poderoso re-
molcador de 2.200 caballos de fucr-
za que ha estado hacienda una gi-
gantesca labor en las bahias de Bal-
boa y Crist6bal desde febrero de
1968, regresarA a su puerto de re-
gistro, Nueva Orleans, a mediados
de octubre.

En el Gorgas

Estan Dando

Unas Charlas
Una series de charlas prenatales se
estAn ofreciendo en el Hospital Gor-
gas y continuarin hasta el 29 de oc-
tubre. Estas charlas tienen lugar en
la nueva Secci6n O, en el tercer piso,
sal6n de conferencias N9 3, a las
7:30 p.m.
Las charlas son: 15 de octubre,
Cuidado Personal Durante el Em-
barazo; 22 de octubre, Dolores de
Parto y Nacimiento (incluyendo un
recorrido con guia por la sala); y el
29 de octubre, Preparaci6n para el
Bebi (incluyendo preparaci6n de
formula y bafio del beb6.)
Tanto las esposas como los espo-
sos estAn invitados.

Una joven esposa estaba lista para
ingresar al Movimiento de Libera-
ci6n de la Mujer-pero su esposo le
dijo que no podia.

El remolcador podrA dejar su tra-
bajo en aguas del Canal de Panama,
debido a que para entonces legara
aqui el Chester Harding, uno de tres
nuevos remolcadores que estan sien-
do construidos para el Canal en
Slidell, Louisiana, por la Southern
Shipbuilding Co. Los otros dos Ile-
garin en noviembre y diciembre.
A pesar de que el Gulf Raider fue
fletado a la Gulf Mississippi Corp.,
de Nueva Orleans, en 1968, con el
fin principal de que ayudara a aten-
der el gran trafico de naves en la
Bahia de Crist6bal y el Area del
AtlAntico del Canal, pronto hubo
que trasladarlo para Balboa. La re-
lativamente pequefia embarcaci6n
ha sido usada para toda clase de
trabajos, incluso el remolque de dos
buques de pasajeros averiados, el
Tahiti y el Fairsea, que habian que-
dado completamente fuera de servi-
cio debido a incendios en sus cuartos
de mAquinas.
El remolcador ha sido operado a
base de un horario de 8 horas dia-
rias de trabajo junto con los remol-
cadores regulars de la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n del Canal de PanamA.
Fue construido en 1967 por Baker
Barge Co., de Louisiana, y es pro-
piedad de Hunter & Petre, de Nueva
El Gulf Raider regresara a Nueva
Orleans bajo el mando del Capitan
Junius Chauvin y se reunirA con una
flota de 21 remolcadores que traba-
jan a lo largo de la Costa del Golfo
para la Gulf Mississippi Corp.

La malaria ha disminuido dramA-
ticamente en la Zona del Canal este
afio con s6lo 46 casos comunicados
desde el mes de enero hasta sep-
tiembre. Para el mismo period el
afio pasado fueron comunicados 124
casos. De los 46 casos comunicados,
9 fueron de empleados de la Zona
del Canal, mientras que en el mis-
mo period en 1969 hubo 29.
Treinta de los 46 casos de este
afio comprendian a personas cuyas
casas estan fuera de la Zona del
Canal mientras que 84 de los casos
en 1969 estaban en esta categoria.
La mayor actividad para la pre-
venci6n de la malaria en la Zona
del Canal es llevada a cabo por las
cuadrillas de obreros de la Divi-
si6n de Sanidad que limpia las zan-
jas de desagiie alrededor de los po-
blados e instalaciones de la Zona
del Canal para prevenir la cria de
mosquitos. Tambien aplican diaria-
mente insecticides contra larvas a
las extensions de agua que no pue-
den sacarse, rellenarse o de otra
manera eliminarse.

Suciedad e Inseguridad
La suciedad no solamente es fea-
tambi6n es insegura. Allen H. Seed,
Jr., de la Keep America Beautiful,
Inc., EE. UU., dice que la suciedad
desparramada en la tierra es much
mAs que una ofensa para la vista;
es el "f6sforo" que enciende miles
de incendios en los hogares cada
afo, a un costo para propietarios y
agents de seguros calculado en
$140 millones en p6rdidas por in-
cendios. Ademis, la suciedad acu-
mulada es un peligro para las carre-
teras, la nataci6n y la navegaci6n
Dentro del hogar, la basura da
origen a uno de cada cuatro incen-
dios. En las carreteras causa incon-
tables accidents. Solamente en el
Estado de Connecticut, en un perio-
do de 3 aiios, se registraron 621 ac-
cidcntcs causados por vehiculos que
se volcaron al tratar de evitar obje-
tos desparramados en la carretera.
En Los Angeles, California, la
situaci6n se ha puesto tan mala que
ha habido que valerse de helic6p-
teros y cimaras de television para
mantener las carreteras libres de
desperdicios y basuras peligrosas.
Los helic6pteros mantienen estrecha
vigilancia y despachan equipos de
emergencia para limpiar las carre-
teras cada vez que es necesario.
