U.S. Civic Councils Discuss

Finances With Governor

Impending increases in food
prices, Canal tolls, and the current
financial squeeze were the main
topics discussed at the January ex-
ecutive session of the U.S. Civic
Councils presided over by Gov.
W. P. Leber.
There will be no change in food
prices and the New Orleans price
policy will prevail until more data
is available by the Board of Direc-
tors, the Governor told the members
of the Civic Councils. He added
that the Board has directed a survey
to compare Canal Zone prices with
those in other areas. Governor Leber
explained that during their recent
visit to the Canal Zone, members of
the Board ate lunch at the Balboa
Service Center and found the
prices low. The Governor, however,
pointed out to them the condition
of the building, the noise, dust, and
lack of air conditioning in compari-
son to this type of facility in the
United States.
The Board of Directors will be
looking into the overall cost of
living, including clothing, enter-
tainment, transportation, and other
items and then see how Panama
Canal employee expenses compare
with those of other Government em-
ployees, the Governor said. He noted
that Panama Canal food prices are
higher than those of the military in
the Canal Zone and on the average
are slightly higher than in the
United States.
The real problem has been the
skyrocketing of wages in the past
4 years, said the Governor, noting
difficulties concessionaries in the
Canal Zone are having as a result
of the Fair Labor Standards Act
which provides employees a mini-
mum hourly wage of $1.60.
Richard Bjorneby, president of
the Coco Solo Civic Council, men-
tioned that tolls have never been
increased on the Canal and if this
cannot be done there are other
means of increasing revenues, such
as surcharges and changing rules on
measurement. Capt. W. A. Rein-
heimer, first vice president of the
Cristobal-Margarita-Brazos Heights
Civic Council, noted that tolls on
the Suez Canal are higher and they
have been increased five times. Gov-
ernor Leber stated that an increase
in tolls would bring added problems
to shipping firms and could cause
loss of traffic. The Governor stated,
however, that tolls will eventually
increase, in all probability.
Governor Leber alerted the Civic
Council that home delivery of milk
is in jeopardy due to lack of funds
for replacement trucks. Currently,
one truck each is assigned to the
Pacific community, the Atlantic side,
and Gamboa. All are in poor condi-
tion and the delivery of milk may
be discontinued in Gamboa, first.
A quart vending machine is located
in the Gamboa superette for dis-
pensing milk when the Gamboa
store is closed.
The Governor assured council
representatives that milk will con-
tinue to be supplied but that Pan-
ama suppliers will deliver it to the
Canal Zone as pasteurized milk in
packages instead of raw milk in
bulk. Mrs. Reinheimer questioned
the reports that a great quantity of
milk in Panama does not meet
standards to which the Governor
answered that Panama Canal has i
never accepted milk not meeting the
proper standards of sanitation. She

asked if, in case of a milk shortage
here, we could count on the Cris-
tobal to bring milk. The Governor
replied that this policy would not
be changed.
Mrs. Barbara Scott of the Gatun
Civic Council asked if the visitors'
pavilion at Gatun Locks is to be
closed because of the financial cut-
back. The Governor answered that
it is possible and that the Panama
Canal Information Office is working
out details. He said it will be opened
for group visits. He noted the popu-
larity of the visitors facilities at both
Gatun and Miraflores, adding that
140,000 persons visited Miraflores
Locks last year.
Captain Reinheimer referred to
the possible cut in issues of the
REVIEW saying it is a good magazine
and suggested that it might be sold
instead of given free. The Governor
said that he hoped it could be
Dr. Teodoro Arias, president of
the Pacific Council, said that he had
been to the Ocu Fair and the Pan-
ama Canal exhibits were missed.
The Governor explained that be-
cause of the cutback, the Panama
Canal and the military have decided
to divide their participation in the
regional fairs in Panama. In answer
to the question of Canal participa-
tion in the carnival in Panama, the
Governor said the Canal will have
a float.

1st Swimmer

Pays Visit to
When Wendell Greene reviews
highlights of his life, he immediately
recalls being one of the first men to
swim the Panama Canal. The fact
that he later became the first treas-
urer of the Panama Canal comes to
mind next.
Visiting the Isthmus this past
week, Greene toured some of the
Canal Zone offices where he spent
part of his 41 years of service with
the Canal organization, looked over
the Canal he swam, visited Panama
City which he found greatly
changed since his last visit here in
1958, and chatted with old friends
and former coworkers.

Wendell Greene, right, the Panama Canal's first treasurer, and John R.
deGrummond, the present Panama Canal treasurer, discuss the merits of
weighing money on this old French Canal company scale found in the base-
ment of the Treasury Office. Greene was visiting the Canal Zone this week
on his first visit since 1958 when he attended the Roosevelt Centennial
celebration here.

Robert M. Schweitz

New Data

Div. Chief
Robert M. Schweitz, assistant
chief of the Data Processing Divi-
sion of the Office of the Comptroller
since August of last year, has been
appointed the Canal's Assistant
Comptroller-Data Processing. He
succeeds Howard E. Turner who is
retiring from Canal service.

Robert M. Schweitz

of Canal

Greene said that he had been
given credit for being the first man
to swim the Panama Canal, although
he shared the honor with John R.
Bingamnan, another early Canal em-
ployee, who left the Isthmus in 1916.
Permission to try the stunt was
given Greene and Bingaman by Col.
George W. Goethals August 18,
1914, just 3 days after the Canal
was opened to traffic.
The Goethals letter, still in
Greene's possession, said they had
permission to swim through the
Canal but that they could not inter-
fere with the operation of the Canal
"The general use of the locks by
swimmers cannot be permitted as
this practice would be a detriment
to the service and the action in this
case does not establish a precedent,"
Coethals said.
The two men started their swim
August 22, 1914, and since they had
to work during the week, continued
their swim on weekends. They com-
pleted the stunt October 18 in a
total of 26 hours and 34 minutes of
swimming time.
Both Greene and Bingaman later
received a master key to the Pan-
ama Canal from Gov. Robert J.
Fleming, Jr. in the grade of "honor-
ary vessel."
Greene, a hearty man in his mid-
(le seventies, is one of the genuine
Panama Canal "oldtimers." He
came to the Isthmus with his father
and mother in 1907. His father,
W. L. Greene, was employed in the
Pacific Division and later became
an employee of the Panama Canal
Young Greene got his first job
x ith the Canal in 1909 at the age of
14 as a messenger and continued on
the Panama Canal payroll until
1919, when he went to the Unitedc

Captain Roscoe

Closes Out

Canal Career

Capt. Kenneth S. Roscoe, senior
assistant port captain at Cristobal,
has retired with 26 years and 11
months of Canal service. He and
his wife, Hlelen, plan to make their
] home in Sarasota, Fla. They will
leave the Isthmus on the Feb-
ruary 18 sailing of the Cristohal.
A native of Ashland, Mass., Cap-
tain Hoscoe attended the Massachu-
setts Maritime Academy. He had
completed 14 years of service with
the American Hawaiian Co. and had
transited the Canal many times on
board a number of different ships
before he came to the Canal Zone
as a pilot-in-training in January
I 1945.
During his service with the Canal
he served briefly as second mate on
the SS Panama, as a tugboat master
I and Canal pilot. In 1958, he began
relieving as assistant port captain
I and in 1962 was permanently ap-
pointed to that position at Cristobal.
He served temporarily as port cap-
tain at Cristobal in 1969 and 1970.
At time of his retirement he was
senior assistant port captain.
The Roscoes have six children and
nine grandchildren. Three of their
children still live in the Canal Zone.

Being poor is no sin, but what
good is it?

Good fortune favors the prepared.

People living in Panama and the
Canal Zone who enjoy water sports
are easily susceptible to a condition
which causes severe itching and
pain in the ears.
This condition is known medic-
ally as otitis externa and is more
commonly called "Swimmer's Ear."
Although much rarer in the United
States and other nontropical coun-
tries, it is a common and persistent
cause of ear problems in this area.
Fortunately, this condition is almost
completely preventible by under-
standing and following certain sim-
ple-basic principles.

The ear canal is like a dark, warm
cavity. When water gets in and
remains, it's continued presence
causes maceration and swelling of
the lining of the canal, preventing
proper drainage of this cavity. The
combination which then develops,
consisting of moisture, skin debris
and the heat of the normal body
temperature, produces a condition
which is extremely favorable for the
growth of bacteria and fungi in this
cavity. Once this is allowed to
occur, "Swimmer's Ear" will de-
velop, associated with the symptoms
of severe itching and pain.
Prevention of this condition is
both easy and very safe. A dry,
slightly acidic canal will never be-
come infected. This is the basis for
the prevention of "Swimmer's Ear."
Immediately following swimming
or wetting the ears in the shower or
bath, acidified alcohol car drops
should be placed in each ear canal.
The water will disolve in the alco-
hol and then evaporate. This will
leave a drv, slightly acidified, asep-
tic, clean skin to line the ear canals
and prevent the conditions necessary-
for "Swimmer's Ear," to develop.
This method is extremely safe and
can be used in any ear. It will pre-
vent much ear suffering if used
routinely immediately after swim-
ming or bathing.
To prevent "Swimmer's Ear,"
acidified alcohol ear drops have
been made available in all the phar-
macies in the Canal Zone, both mil-
itary or civilian. Prescriptions for
this have been preparedtl and may
ble obtained, generally without wait-
ing, from the ENT Clinics in the
Canal Zone, or from a nurse at any
of the Community Health Centers.

To Start Canal

Work on Mon.

The Latin American Student
Assistant Program of the Canal or-
ganization, which begins February 8
and continues through May 15, will
give local students an opportunity
to gain experience in their partic-
ular fields of interest as well as pro-
vide vacation time employment.
Fifty-nine of the students selected
this year are from the University of
Panama and the University of Santa
Maria La Antigua, and 195 are from
high schools in the Canal Zone and
the Republic of Panama.
All participating in the vacation
employment program are full-time
students attending the universities or
graduating seniors from the high
schools on both sides of the Isthmus.
Gov. W. P. Leber will welcome
the students at the Balboa High
School Auditorium, February 11, at
9 a.m. Following his talk, a com-
prehensive orientation on the Canal
organization will be conducted by
Frank A. Baldwin, Panama Canal
Information Officer.
Representatives of the Personnel
Bureau will explain employment
opportunities for Latin American
students and the Canal Zone Merit
System eligibility procedures.
Following the program in the
auditorium, students will be taken
on an all-day tour by a representa-
tive of the Panama Canal Informa-
tion Office. Visits to selected Pacific
side installations, the Canal model
in the Civil Affairs Building, Mira-
flores Locks, and a partial transit of
Gaillard Cut will be included in the
Pacific side student assistants, who
have already taken this tour and
who do not wish to repeat it, may
return directly to their units upon
completion of the orientation.

receive their retirement certificates.
Governor Leber said the retirees,
who had devoted a great deal of
their lives to the Canal organization,
had more than 1,400 years of serv-
ice to their credit.
"It is interesting to note," he said
"that some of the retiring employees
were born in Panama or the Canal
Zone and have spent most of their
lives living and working on the
Others, he said, were born in
various parts of the West Indies and
the United States and one employee
had been born as far away as Ire-
"It is fitting," he said, "that there
should be such a diversity of origin
among our employees since they
work in an organization that deals
with ships of all nations carrying
crews from many nations and cargo
from all over the world.
"Not only does the Panama Ca-
nal appreciate and thank xyou for
your many years of service with this
operation, Governor Leber added,
but many people from all over the
world who are saving money and
time on transportation of goods
thank xyou also."
Among the retiring employees,
Governor Leber noted there was
one with more than 52 years of serv-
ice. Ile is Miguel Jimncez, a boat-
oman in the Pacific Locks.
Those with more than 40 years of
service were Peter Alexis, Division
of Storehouses; William 13. Davis,
Locks Division; Anderson C. Dow,
Dredging Division; William A.
Howard, Facilities Engineering Di-
vision; Samuel A. IIoyte, Mental
Health Center; Edward L. Inniss,

flores Filter Plant, clerk tracer in
the Office of Engineers, clerk in the
Bureau of Statistics, supervisory
rollkeeper, administrative assistant
and assistant chief in the Payroll
Bureau and systems accountant in
the Office of the Comptroller.

essing Division and promoted to
chief of the division in 1965. Since
that time Turner has been responsi-

Although he started his career as
a clerk in the Postal Division, he
switched to the Pay Office in 1929
and was made Paymaster in 1945.
He recalls that the Panama Canal
employees were paid in cash in those
days and that sometimes there were
several million dollars stashed away
in the Administration Building in
Balboa Heights, the site of the main
Pay Office.
He was made Panama Canal
Treasurer in 1948 and was retired
after 41 years of service in 1952.
No man to let the world pass
him by, Greene and his wife
Mildred, a former Canal Zone li-
brarian, made their home in Hen-
dersonville, N.C. There he started
working as an accountant for several
firms and in addition, became an
income tax consultant for more
than 100 clients. He opened up his
own accounting and tax office in
1956 and contiuned in this work
until last year.
Both he and his wife take an
active part in the social and com-
munity life of Hendersonville. He
is a member of the Rotary Club, the

Grupo Internacional

El de los Jubilados

Un grupo international que ha
servido a una operaci6n internacio-
nal que beneficia a todo el mundo,
es la forma en que el Gobemador
W. P. Leber calific6 a los 62 em-

El Gobemador Leber dijo que los
jubilados, que han dedicado gran
parte de sus vidas a la organizaci6n
del Canal, tenian mis de 1.400 aiios

Es interesante destacar, dijo, que
algunos de los empleados que se ju-
bilan nacieron en PanamA y en la
Zona del Canal, y han pasado la
mayor parte de sus vidas viviendo y
trabajando en el Istmo.

Dijo que otros nacieron en varias
parties de las Antillas y en los Esta-
dos Unidos y un empleado habia
nacido en un lugar tan lejano como

tal diversidad de origen entire nues-
tros empleados, ya que laboran en

ciones y cargamento de todo el

te aprecia y les agradece por sus
muchos arios de servicio con esta
operaci6n", agreg6 el Gobernador
Leber, "sino que much gente en

tiempo y dinero en el transport de
mercancia, lo agradece tambien".

Ninia Chirica

Con Exito ei
Una niflita de las altas montafias
de Chiriqui podri Ilevar una vida
normal, gracias a ia operaci6n que
le hizo el Dr. Theodore R. Yost, del
Hospital Gorgas, y a los buenos ofi-
cios de una familiar de residents de
la Zona del Canal, que desean per-
manecer en el anonimato.
La nifia se llama Magalis Mendo-
za y reside con su madre, Alicia
Mendoza, en la poblaci6n de Bam-
bito, Volcan. Naci6 con el defecto
conocido como "labio leporino", o
sea que el labio superior lo tenia
partido. Ese defecto le impedia ha-
blar correctamente.
Hoy, todos esos problems son
historic del pasado y Magalis es una
lindisima chiquilla de 41/ afios, de
unos tremendous ojazos negros, su-
mamente conversadora y que Ileva
una vida completamente normal.
Todo comenz6 en septiembre del
aiio pasado, cuando el Padre Roach,
parroco de Hato Volcin, poblaci6n
situada a mas de 300 millas al occi-
dente de PanamA y a mAs de 6.000
pies de altura, le habl6 del caso a la
familiar a que nos referimos anterior-
mente y que posee una residencia
de veraneo en esos lugares. Ense-
guida se interesaron y fueron con el
padre a visitar la casa de la Sra.
Mendoza. Quedaron muy impresio-
nados al ver la niiiita y el Padre
Roach convenci6 a la madre de que
debia dejar que operaran a su hija,
que ya tenia 4 afios y se escondia al
ver que Ilegaba cualquiera persona
de visit.
Se la trajo una vez para examenes
preliminares y luego a principios de
noviembre, vino en avi6n a la Zona
del Canal. "A mi me encant6 el
avi6n", dice sonriendo, "pero no
pude gozar el viaje porque el Padre
Kennedy, que era quien me traia,
me dio un caramelo y enseguida me
qued6 dormida. Al ratito me des-
pertaron diciendome que estaba en
Tocumen. Ni cuenta que me di de
nada". Dice que la pr6xima vez que
vuele no se va a quedar dormida y
gozara su viaje.
El Dr. Yost, la oper6 pocos dias
despu6s. Para el Dia de Acci6n de
Gracias, 26 de noviembre, la niiia
se habia recuperado tan bien que
fue Ilevada a su casa en Bambito.
Cuando la madre la vio no podia
dar cr6dito a sus ojos. Apenas si
reconocia a la niiia debido al tre-

mendo cambio que habia tenido. Ya
podia hablar perfectamente y tenia
perfectas sus facciones. Se le dijo
que en enero tenia que regresar al
Hospital Gorgas, para que la exami-
naran, cosa a la que la madre acce-
di6 muy content.

El 26 de enero, la familiar protec-
tora de la nilia la traia do nuevo al
Gorgas. Esta vez se encontraron con
un problema: la ninia, cada vez que
veia a algin hombre extrafno, creia
que era un mdclico y que la iban a
operar otra vez, quedando presa
del pAnico. Pero, al 6inico hombre
en que confiaba, aunque parezca
incredible, era en el Dr. Yost. Cuan-
do se le tom6 la foto que acompaiia
este articulo, hubo que prepararla
para que le tuviera confianza al
El Dr. Yost qued6 asombrado
ante el poder de recuperaci6n de la
nifiita, pues no ha necesitado de ul-
terior tratamiento y estA perfecta-
mente bien. -La nifia por su parte
estai muy content y quiere much
a todos los que la tratan. Pero no
quiere quedarse en la Zona del
Canal. Su explicaci6n: "Esto es muy
bonito. Aqui hay muchas personas
buenas y todo lo demAs, pero hace
much calor y por eso Bambito me
gusta mAs".

Pareciendo sonreir a la vida nuevamente, Magalis Mendoza monta un velo-
cipedo de uno de sus muchos amiguitos de la Zona del Canal. Ya no quedan
seiias del defecto en los labios con que naci6.



Los que viven aqui en Panama
y se dedican a los deportes acuAti-
cos facilmente son susceptible a
una condici6n que causa several pi-
caz6n y dolor en los oidos. En me-
dicina, esta condici6n se conoce
como otitis externa y mAs comuin-
mente como "oido de nadador".
Aunque es much mAs rara en los
Estados Unidos y otros paises no
tropicales, aqui es causa comin y
persistent de problems en los
oidos. Por suerte, esta condici6n se
puede evitar, casi por complete,
comprendiendo y observando cier-
tos principios bisicos simple.
El canal del oido es como una
cavidad, oscura y caliente. Cuando
le entra agua y alli permanece, pro-
duce ablandamiento e hinchaz6n de
Ia piel que cubre el canal auditivo,
impidiendo que el area se seque de-
bidamente. La combinaci6n que asi
se produce, consistent en hume-
dad, desechos de piel y el calor de
la temperature normal del cuerpo,
produce una condici6n extremada-
mente favorable al crecimiento de
bacteria y hongos en dicha cavi-
clad. Una vez que se permit esa
condici6n, se desarrolla el "oido de
nadador", junto con los sintomas do
fuertes dolores y picaz6n.
Esta condici6n se evita fAcil y se-
guramente. Un canal auditivo seco
y en un medio ligeramente Acido
jams se infectarA. Esto es bAsico
para la prevenci6n del "oido de
Inmediatamente despues de na-
i dar o de mojarse los oidos en iat
ducha o en la tina, deben colocarse
gotas de alcohol acidificado en cada
1uno tie los canales auditivos. El
agua se disolvenri en cl alcohol v
luego se evaporari. Esto dejar;i limn-
pia, seca y en un medio ligeramente
aicido la piel que cubre las paredes
del canal auditivo y evitara las con-
diciones bajo las c alCs se desarro-
hla el "oido de nadador". Este m6-
todo es extremadamentc seguro y
puede usarse en cualquiera de los
Soidos. Este simple procedimiento
evitanr muchos sufrimientos en los
oidos si se usa te riutina, inmnedia-
tamente despues del bafno o de na-
dlar. Ha sido anmpliamente probado

Un servicio religioso especial de-
dicado a todos los graduados de
1971 en las Escuelas Latinoameri-
cans de la Zona del Canal y de las
escuelas secundarias en la Repibli-
ca de Panama celebrara la Iglesia
del Evangelio Unido el domingo 7

El Capitan Kenneth S. Roscoe,
primer ayudante al Capitan del
Puerto en Crist6bal, se ha jubilado
despuBs de 26 aios y 11 meses de
servicio con el Canal. El y su esposa
Helen, planean residir en Sarasota,
Florida. Partirin del Istmo el 18 de
febrero en el Cristdbal.
Nativo de Ashland, Massachusetts,
el Capitan Roscoe asisti6 a la Aca-
clemia Maritima de Massachusetts.
Habia completado 14 afios de ser-
vicio con la American Hawaiian Co.
y habia transitado por el Canal mu-
chas veces a bordo de varies barcos
diferentes antes de venir a la Zona
del Canal como prActico del Canal
(aprendiz) en enero de 1945.
Durante su servicio con el Canal
sirvi6 brevemente como segundo ofi-
cial en el barco Panamnd, como capi-
tAn de remolcador y practice del
Canal. En 1958 comenz6 a relevar
como ayudante al Capitan del Puer-

como muy efectivo y el Dr. Gilbert
Levitt, Jefe de la Clinica de Oidos,
Nariz y Carganta del Hospital Gor-
gas, lo recomienda encarecidamente.
Con el objeto de combatir el
"oido de nadador" todas las farma-
cias de la Zona del Canal, tanto ci-
viles como militares, tienen en exis-
tencia alcohol acidificado. Las rece-
tas para obtenerlo han sido prepa-
radas y pueden obtenerse sin tener
que esperar, en las clinics de oidos,
nariz y garganta de la Zona del
Canal, o con cualquiera de las en-
fermeras de los Centros de Salubri-
dad Comunal. Simplemente, presen-
te esta receta en cualquiera de las
farmacias de la Zona del Canal y
conseguiri el medicamento.
Si ya se sufre de hinchaz6n e in-
famaci6n en el canal auditivo, las
gotas de alcohol podrAn producer
una sensaci6n inc6moda de ardor.
Si tal es el caso, a pesar de que las
gotas no causaran daflo alguno, de-
beria consultarse tn m6dico, por si
acaso se necesita otra medicine o
tratamiento ulterior.

Nadador y Ex Tesorero

Estuvo de Visita Aqui

gm* .6 f
La operaci6n de la maquina automatic para firmar cheques es explicada
por John R. deGrummond, Tesorero del Canal de PanamA a J. Wendell
Greene, el primer Tesorero del Canal de PanamA, quien se jubil6 en 1952.
Greene, quien reside ahora en Carolina del Norte, visit la Tesoreria
durante su reciente estada en la Zona del Canal.

Cuando Wendell Greene repasa
las cosas mis importantes de su
vida, inmediatamente recuerda que
fue uno de los primeros en nadar
el Canal de PanamA. Luego, recuer-
da el hecho de que mas tarde se
convirti6 en el primer tesorero de
la Compainia del Canal de PanamA.
De visit en el Istmo la semana
pasada, Greene recorri6 algunas de
las oficinas de la Zona del Canal en
las que pas6 parte de sus 41 afos
de servicio con la empresa del
Canal, dio un vistazo al Canal por
done habia nadado, visit la ciu-
dad de PanamAi, a la que encontr6
muy cambiada desde su iltima visi-
ta en 1958 y habl6 con viejos ami-
gos y compaileros de trabajo.
Greene dijo que se le habia dado
cr6dito por haber sido el primero
en nadar el Canal de PanamA, a
pesar de que comparti6 ese honor
con otro empleado del Canal, John
R. Bingaman quien parti6 del
Istmo en 1916.
Greene y Bingaman recibieron el
permiso para su aventura nada me-
nos que de parte del Coronel George
W. Goethals, el 18 de agosto de
1914, apenas 3 dias despues que el
Canal fuera abierto al trAfico.
La carta de Goethals, que Greene
todavia guard, dice que tenian per-
miso para nadar el Canal, pero que
no deberian interferir con la opera-
ci6n de las esclusas.
"El uso general de las esclusas
por nadadores no puede permitirse,
pues esta practice iria en detri-
mento del servicio y la acci6n en
este caso no establece precedente,
dijo Goethals.
Los dos hombres empezaron a
nadar el 22 de agosto de 1914 y,
puesto que tenian que trabajar du-
rante la semana, continuaron su
aventura durante los fines de sema-
na. Terminaron el 18 de octubre
en un total de 26 horas y 34 minu-
tos de tiempo en el agua.
