Next Citizenship Hearings

To Open Here Jan. 18

Three examiners of the Immigra-
tion and Naturalization- Service,
U.S. Department of Justice, are
scheduled to hold hearings for Cer-
tificates of Citizenship in the Canal
Zone, January 18-24.
Hearings will be by appointment
only for those whose applications
have been processed by the New
Orleans Office of the Immigration
and Naturalization Service and who
will be notified by mail from New
Orleans as to date, time, and place
of their Canal Zone hearing.
Pacific side hearings will be con-
ducted in Room 105, Building 5534
(the old Diablo Heights Elementary
School), on Hains Street, Diablo.
Atlantic side hearings will be held
in the Cristobal Customs Office.
Certificates of Citizenship are is-
sued in the Canal Zone by the Im-
migration and Naturalization Serv-
ice under authority of PL-89-710
signed by the President in Novem-
ber 1966. About 2,000 certificates
of Citizenship have been issued in
the Canal Zone in the past 4 years.
The January detail will be headed
by Andrew J. Carmichael, Jr., of the
Southeast Regional Office of the Im-
migration and Naturalization Serv-
ice in Richmond, Va. Carmichael
has recently been promoted to the
position of Regional Counsel and
this will probably be his final parti-
cipation in the Canal Zone program.
Harold J. Neubauer and William
Darlington of New Orleans will
complete the team assigned to this
detail. Neubauer has conducted
hearings in the Canal Zone before
and previous to the enactment of
PL-89-710 handled Canal Zone
applicants passing through New
Darlington is a newcomer to the
Canal Zone and replaces William T.
Jarmon of San Antonio, Tex., for
this assignment.
The Customs Division of the Civil
Affairs Bureau is charged with the
action responsibility of coordinating

Locks Overhaul

Will Begin at

Gatun Sunday

The crane Hercules has moved
cranes and other equipment from
the Pacific to the Atlantic side for
the overhaul of the Gatun Locks
culvert valves, which is to begin
Personnel also will be transferred
temporarily from the Pacific side to
help in the overhaul, expected to
take about 3 months to complete.
In addition, some 350 temporary
employees will be assigned to work
at Gatun.
Throughout the overhaul, both
lanes will remain in service, except
for short periods at the start and
finish of each phase when lateral
culvert plugs are to be installed and
removed. The plugs serve as bulk-
heads to isolate the culverts so they
can be pumped out to allow valve
work to be carried out.
The vehicle crossing at the north
end of Gatun Locks will be closed
to traffic from 4 to 6 p.m., Sunday,
June 10, because of the overhaul.

Supply Division Chief

Cited for Achievement

Raymond P. Laverty, General
Manager of the Supply Division,
had two reasons for rejoicing during
this holiday season.
He was one of the fortunate Canal
Zone residents to have parents visit-
ing from the United States. Mr. and
Mrs. Raymond P. Laverty, Sr., of
Massachusetts were present when
their son was presented a Panama
Canal Special Achievement Award
in recognition of superior job per-
Laverty, who has been General
Manager of the Supply Division for
the past 2 years, was presented the
award by L. A. Ferguson, Supply
and Community Service Director.
The award was accompanied by a
check for $350.
The citation noted Laverty's
"leadership and analytical ability
has brought the Supply Division to
a high degree of effectiveness in
fulfilling its mission, while at the
same time he has developed
and implemented substantial cost
reductions and generated savings
much greater than those normally
expected . "
In the past year, Laverty sucess-
fully consolidated three major re-
tail and service center complexes,
including the elimination of five
outlets, achieving annual savings
of approximately $145,000; reduc-

tion of 31 man-years of labor with-
out the use of reduction-in-force;
and overall improvement of service
to the Canal Zone public in the.
communities affected.
Laverty also implemented signif-
icant cost reduction in warehousing,
laundry operations, internal store
reorganizations, and other opera-
tions which provided savings with
no drop in service to the public.
He was cited also for his per-
sonnel management development
programs and the general increase
in overall efficiency and service
levels throughout the Supply Divi-
Laverty came to the Isthmus
from Massachusetts 13 years ago
when he joined the Supply and
Community Service Bureau as a
graduate intern trainee after ob-
taining a master's degree in indus-
trial and personnel management
from Boston University. He also
holds a bachelor's degree from
Notre Dame University.
He has held the positions of As-
sistant Supply Officer, Merchandise
Management Officer, and General
Supply Officer. He also has served
as Assistant Retail Store Superin-
tendent and Assistant General Man-
ager of the Supply Division.
He and his wife, Marilyn, and
their three children live in Ancon.

Latin American and U.S. schools for
both students and personnel em-
ployed in the schools and will work
closely with the school nurses to-
ward expanding the existing school
health program.
Aware of the particular problems
of adolescence, Dr. Cheville plans
to have open hours at Cristobal and
Balboa High Schools on certain days
when any student can go in and
talk with him confidentially. Along
with his other duties, he will serve
as a counselor, working closely with
other agencies in cases involving
mental or emotional problems.
Dr. Cheville plans to work actively
with health educators in the Schools
Division in programs concerning
drug use and abuse, venereal dis-
ease, skin problems, family living,
and other aspects of education for
healthful living.
In the elementary schools, partic-
ular emphasis will be given to dis-
covering physical and mental prob-
lems as early as possible after a child
has entered school. This will in-
clude physical examinations, screen-
ing for visual and hearing problems,
tuberculin skin tests, chest X-rays,
and a general program of preventive
The school doctor also will work
with the Police Division and the
Safety Branch toward improving the
school environment as far as safety
is concerned. The elimination of
playground or classroom hazards
and making sure school crossings are
safe will be a part of this program.
As in the past, the school physician
will coordinate medical support for
contact sports.
Dr. Cheville recently arrived in
the Canal Zone from the San Fran-
cisco Bay area where he was em-
ployed as medical director with the
Office of Economic Opportunity
working with Mexican-Americans.
Prior to that, he interned at Gor-
gas Hospital from June 1961 to
June 1962 and was employed as a

Foster Home

Care Service

Being Formed
Foster home care is vitally needed
in the Canal Zone for some children
and adolescents whose parents have
had tragedies, suffered prolonged
illnesses, or find themselves tem-
porarily unable to cope satisfactorily
with their children.
At these times it is important
to have temporary care for the
children by a family who can pro-
vide physical comfort, affection,
emotional security, patience, and
understanding of growing children
and adolescents.
A voluntary foster home care serv-
ice for children and young adults is
being formed in the Canal Zone and
it is seeking potential voluntary
foster care homes in all the Canal
Zone communities.
If vou are interested in being
considered as a "Foster Home" in
the Canal Zone and you live on the
Atlantic side, write to: "Foster
Home" Box 5096, Cristobal, C.Z.
If you live on the Pacific side,
write to "Foster Home" Box 1948,
Balboa, C.Z.

Canal Zone Girl Scouts are invit-
ing Boy Scouts of corresponding age

Affairs Building at 8 a.m., by bus
and travel to Gamboa, where they
will take the Las Cruces to the
island. Special arrangements have
been made for Atlantic side scouts
who wish to attend. Everyone will
bring a picnic lunch and iced drinks
will be on sale.
Chris Pederson and his rock band,
the "Crystal Stream," will play for
the day. There will be swimming
supervised by lifeguards, volley
ball, and other sports.

lood Bank

in recognizing the vital role of the
voluntary blood donor in medical
Both local blood banks are mem-
bers of the American Association
of Blood Banks which proposed ob-
servance of the month as part of a
broad program to promote volun-
tary blood donations and to prevent
seasonal shortage.
President Nixon's proclamation
says, in part: "Among the noblest
acts of personal generosity is. the
gift of one's blood for the benefit
of another. It is a contribution to
health and life for which there is
no substitute.
"The voluntary blood donor sys-
tem developed by the American Red
Cross and the American Association
of Blood Banks provides modem
methods for safe and simple dona-
tions of blood. Contributions of the
vohtntary blood donor should be
recognized and encouraged to as-
sure that our nation's growing need
is safely met.
"To this end, the Congress by
Senate Joint Resolution 223 has re-
ouested the President to issue a
proclamation designating the month
of January 1971 as National Blood
Donor Month.
"Now, therefore, I, Richard
Nixon, President of the United
States of America, do hereby pro-
claim the month of January 1971
as National Blood Donor Month. I
call upon the public media, the
blood-banking and medical and
health facilities of our country, and
the public at large to pay special
tribute and honor during that month
to the voluntary donor and to en-
courage, by all appropriate means,
increasing numbers of people to be
voluntary blood donors."

Pleasing Letter

Received by 10
The polite style of the PANAMA
CANAL REVIEW appealed so much
to a recent subscriber that she wrote
the Information Office about it.
Mrs. Lucy C. Powell, who
worked as a secretary in the con-
struction-day town of Empire more
than 60 years ago, wrote: "I have
been reading your May REVIEW and
one( unusual thing I've noticed and
liked is that when a story is com-
pleted on another page, you write,
'please turn to page--'. I think,
I have never before noticed in any
magazine the word 'please' and this
is one reason I'm subscribing."
Mrs. Powell, who holds the Roose-
velt Medal for her service from 1908
to 1910, lives in Chevy Chase, Md.,
but has been visiting in the Canal
Zone and Panama for the past

jHacia D6nde Vamos?

Pocas son las personas que durante los 6ltimos dias del afio no se detienen
a pensar sobre lo logrado en el afio que acaba de terminar y en hacer planes
para el future. Pero la mayoria de las veces los planes que se formula no
se ajustan much a la realidad. En verdad, lo que hacemos es poner de
manifesto las cosas que nos gustaria hacer o lograr, sin detenemos a pensar
en lo que debemos hacer para que esos deseos se transformed en cosas
dPor qu6 sucede 6sto? D6nde estA la fall? Como series humans que
somos tenemos una tendencia a desear lo mejor y en la formulaci6n de
planes olvidamos el lado prActico. La mayoria de las veces olvidamos el
planeamiento previo que se necesita para que las cosas salgan bien. Pero
tambi6n esto puede ser utilizado como excusa, para que al no lograr lo
deseado podamos decir, "yo lo queria, pero tuve mala suerte, no result
como lo deseaba". jQu6 sencillo es echarle la culpa a la suerte!
Pero seamos realistas. Al formular nuestros planes para 1971, pregunti-
monos concretamente hacia d6nde vamos. Cuando planiemos el Programa
de Seguridad para este anio, no nos limitemos a lo que nos gustaria alcanzar,
al porcentaje en que quisi6ramos disminuir los indices de accidents, a los
premios que quisieramos que nuestro departamento ganara por la reducci6n
en los accidents. Pensemos en todo esto, si, pero antes que nada pensemos
en lo que tendremos que hacer para que estos suenios sean realidad. Los
esfuerzos que habrin de hacerse, la cooperaci6n que necesitaremos, tanto
de los trabajadores como de la gerencia, los sinsabores que tendremos que
sufrir si los resultados no estAn en proporci6n con los esfuerzos realizados,
los materials que necesitaremos para instruir mejor a los trabajadores, y,
por sobre todo, cuAnto estamos dispuestos a poner de nosotros mismos para
tener 6xito.
Hecho esto trabajemos intensamente y con conciencia y lograremos lo
que nos hemos propuesto. Y lo lograremos porque hemos puesto lo mejor
de nosotros mismos y no s6lo habremos deseado algo sino que habremos
hecho el esfuerzo para lograrlo, y sabemos que todo esfuerzo tiene siempre
su just recompensa.
dHacia d6nde vamos en 1971? Hacia lo que nos hemos propuesto lograr.

Una figure muy conocida por los
predios del Edificio de Administra-
ci6n es Emilio Antonio Rivera, Jr.,
operario de computadora en la Di-
visi6n de Elaboraci6n de Datos de
la Contraloria del Canal de PanamA.
Rivera comenz6 a laborar con la
organizaci6n del Canal el 18 de abril
de 1955, por lo que cumplira den-
tro de poco 16 aiios de servicio,
todos con la Contraloria. Antes de
venir al Canal, Rivera habia labo-
rado durante 4 meses con la Taba-
calera Istmefia en la ciudad de Pa-
nama, operando miquinas de pro-
cesar tabaco. El trabajo de Rivera
consiste en Ilevar la contabilidad me-
canizada, operando una computa-
dora desde la console de control. El
21 de noviembre de 1964 contrajo
matrimonio con Amalia Howard,
hoy sefiora de Rivera, con la cual
tiene una nifia, Katia Maria, de 2
aiios de edad. Rivera, nacido en la
ciudad de PanamA el 23 de junior de
1933, hizo todos sus studios tanto
primaries como secundarios, en Bal-
boa. Uno de sus pasatiempos es el
de trabajar la mecanica en su pro-
pio autom6vil, aunque estA toman-
do un curso por correspondencia
para la reparaci6n de artefactos el6c-
tricos. Le encanta viajar a Ia bella

Mes del Banco de Sangre

Proclamado por R. Nixon

El Gobernador de la Zona del
Canal, W. P. .Leber, ha Ilamado la
atenci6n sobre la designaci6n hecha
por el Presidente Richard M. Nixon
al mes de Enero como el Mes Na-
cional del Banco de Sangre y soli-
cita a la comunidad de la Zona del
Canal unirse a los bancos de sangre
del Hospital Coco Solo y el Hos-
pital Gorgas como reconocimiento al
papel vital del donante voluntario
de sangre en la atenci6n m6dica.
Los dos bancos de sangre locales
son miembros de la Asociaci6n
Americana de Bancos de Sangre
que propuso la celebraci6n del mes
como parte de un extenso program
para promover las donaciones volun-
tarias de sangre y evitar la tempora-
da de escasez.

Otro Dilema

El laboratorio de Toxicidad de
la Universidad de Chicago, EE.
UU., ha sefialado un nuevo peligro
del DDT: la persona obesa que co-
mienza a perder peso, puede en-
venenarse inadvertidamente porque
los pesticides se acumulan en altas
concentraciones en la grasa humana
sin producer efectos t6xicos aparen-
tes. Si se elimina una cantidad con-
siderable de grasa-a trav6s de una
dieta, o por enfermedad-la canti-
dad del mismo pesticide acumulado
en la sangre, puede subir a niveles

El muchachito que acaba de lle-
gar de la escuela: "Hoy aprendi algo
nuevo del psic6logo de la escuela.
Le llama "azotaina".

Cuando un tipo estA ya casi cura-
do de renegar, es ya casi el tiempo
de hacer otra declaraci6n de rentas.

El transito no seria ni la mitad tan
malo, si otros choferes fueran tan
considerados, de carActer ecuanime
y habiles como usted.

El nuevo president Blenman fue
el vicepresidente en el period an-
terior y luego president interino
cuando Harold Williams se retir6.
Blenman, al tomar posesi6n, de-
clar6 que uno de los principles
objetivos del nuevo consejo civico

juventud local en los nusmerosos
problems del mundo de hoy y
hacer todo lo possible porque todos

part active en los diferentes pro-

los logros mas importantes del Con-

dida colaboraci6n de Saturnin G.

mento a la cooperaci6n de los
miembros de la comunidad, de los

presas de la Repuiblica de PanamA y
de la Administraci6n del Canal.
"Sin esa decidida y valiosa ayuda,
jams hubieramos podido alcanzar
nuestro objetivo de conseguirle a la
comunidad un campo de juegos de
beisbol complete, con todos los re-
quisitos de seguridad, para que
nuestros j6venes puedan divertirse
sanamente practicando los depor-
tes", declar6 el president del Con-
sejo Civico de Rainbow City.
Watson declar6 tambien que debe
hacerse especial menci6n del mag-
nifico trabajo de Dimas Cortes, em-
pleado de las Esclusas de Gatin y
miembro del Consejo Civico, quien
dirigi6 el trabajo de erecci6n de la
valla completamente gratis y cont6
con la entusiasta cooperaci6n de
varies j6venes de la comunidad, que
prestaron sus servicios como alba-
uiles voluntarios.
