has had a distinguished military
career since he was graduated in
1944 from the U.S. Military Acad-

Shortly after he was commis-

1946 to 1948, he was assigned to
the U.S. Army Military Govern-

Committee in recognition of his
40 years of dedicated efforts to
community activities.
He believed if you lived in a
community, liked the community,
then you supported the community
which is why he devoted much of
his time to being the organizer of
so many community events. Not
only Fourth of July celebrations
but community chest drives and
other activities.
He was cochairman of the Fourth
of July celebration for the first time
in 1933 and continued in that posi-

Lightning Kills More People Than Tornadoes, Floods

These Safety Hints
May Help You Avoid
Injury or Death

Lightning kills more people in
the United States than tornadoes,
floods, or hurricanes.
But according to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin-
istration (NOAA), a Commerce
Department agency, many people
do not know the few simple safety
rules which could save their lives
during an electrical storm.
Lightning usually kills just one
person at a time-attracting less
attention than do the more spec-
tacular hurricanes, tornadoes, and
floods, which may kill hundreds of
people in a single episode.
Nevertheless, during the 34-year
period that ended January 1, 1974,
lightning was responsible for the
deaths of about 7,000 Americans,
or 55 percent more than were
killed by tornadoes and at least
41 percent more than were killed
by hurricanes and floods combined.
NOAA's National Weather Serv-
ice and Environmental Data Serv-
ice, after documenting years of
lightning case histories, have drawn
up a list of safety rules for avoid-
ing death or injury from lightning.
The first is simply to learn to
recognize the signs of an on-
coming thunderstorm-the carrier
of lightning. Watch for the tower-

ing thunderheadd" clouds, distant
rumbles of thunder, and occasional
flashes of lightning which will in-
dicate an approaching storm. Also
listen to radio and television for
National Weather Service fore-
casts and warnings. There is
usually ample time to find shelter.
When a thunderstorm threatens,
all lightning experts agree that the
most important single thing you
can do is to get inside a home or
large building, or inside an all-
metal (not a convertible) vehicle.
An enclosed truck or car is an
excellent lightning shelter. If
struck, it will allow the current to
be discharged harmlessly into the
Inside a home, avoid using the
telephone, except for emergencies.
If outside, with no time to reach
a safe building or an automobile,
follow these rules:
* Do not stand underneath a
natural lightning rod such as a tall,
isolated tree in an open area.
* Avoid projecting above the
surrounding landscape, as you
would do if you were standing on
a hilltop, in an open field, on the
beach, or fishing from a small
* Get out of and away from
open water. (If you are swimming,
lightning current from a nearby
stroke can flow through the water
to you.)
* Get away from tractors and
other metal farm equipment.
* Get off of and away from
motorcycles, scooters, golf carts
and bicycles. Put down golf clubs.

* Stay away from wire fences,
clotheslines, metal pipes, rails and
other metallic paths which could
carry lightning to you from some
distance away.
* Avoid standing in small iso-
lated sheds or other small struc-
tures in open areas.
+ In a forest, seek shelter in a
low area under a thick growth of
small trees. In open areas, go to a
low place such as a ravine or
* If you are hopelessly isolated
in a level field or prairie and you
feel your hair stand on end-in-
dicating lightning is about to
strike-drop to your knees and
bend forward putting your hands
on your knees. In this position, if
lightning strikes near you, the
chances of it using your body as
a conductor are minimized. In
the past, some authorities have
recommended lying flat in this sit-
uation, to get as low as possible.
But the International Commission
on Atmospheric Electricity of the
World Meteorological Organization
disapproved this practice. It recom-
mends kneeling, instead, so that a
low profile is maintained while at
the same time keeping as small an
area of the body in contact with
the ground as possible. The Com-
mission also discourages lying in a
ditch or hollow where surface
water or saturated soil is likely to
be a better conductor of electricity
than the surrounding area.
* Groups of persons in exposed
situations, such as hikers or moun-
tain climbers, should spread out-

staying several yards apart-so that
if lightning strikes nearby, the
smallest number will be affected.
Many people apparently "killed"
by lightning can be revived if
quick action is taken. When a
group is affected, the apparently
dead should be treated first; those
unconscious but breathing will
probably recover spontaneously.
First aid should be rendered to
those not breathing within 4 to 6
minutes or less to prevent irrevoca-
ble damage to the brain, says the
American Red Cross. Mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation should be ad-
ministered once every 5 seconds
to adults and once every 3 seconds

to infants and small children, until
medical help arrives.
If the victim is not breathing
and has no pulse, cardio-pulmonary
resuscitation is necessary. This is
a combination of mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation and external cardiac
compression. It should be admin-
istered by persons with proper
training. The technique can be
learned from local Red Cross or
Heart Association chapters in 1-day
Medical attention also should be
given to victims who appear only
temporarily stunned or otherwise
unhurt, since there may be hidden

Robert L. Jones is a railroad
man. A special railroad man to
passengers of the Panama Rail-
According to his job description,
he is the conductor who is in
charge of his train and the safety
of the passengers, and who must
take care of the accounts and
bookkeeping for his run.
According to travelers, he is the
"host" who greets and treats trav-
elers, especially regular commuters,
as his personal guests.
Before coming to the tropics,
Bob did his railroading along the
400 miles of rail from Fairbanks
to Seward that made up the
Alaskan Railroad.
His wife, Marcia, says she and
their young son spent 10 years
"running after him" from outpost
to outpost living out in the
"boonies" once in a log cabin and
once in a little lean-to that some
stevedores had put up.
Ready for a change of scene,
Bob applied for a job on the PRR
after seeing an ad in a Civil Serv-
ice flyer. For 2 years he did not
hear a word. Then one day he
rushed home to tell Marcia the
Panama Railroad had accepted him

and they had to be in the Canal
Zone in 3 weeks.
Even though they had to wait
for the ice to break before they
could begin the drive to New
Orleans, they made it and arrived
in the Canal Zone in April 1962.
The Joneses liked the rugged
life of the Alaska of 25 years ago.
They like the easier life of the
Canal Zone today. And they are
looking forward to living "like the
Astors" after retirement spending
winters on their 20-acre grapefruit
ranch in Mission, Tex., and their
summers in their mountain home
in Risk Canyon, Colo.
"Snowflake," as he was imme-
diately nicknamed by his co-
workers when he arrived from
Alaska, was born in Lincoln, Nebr.,
and grew up in a small town about
45 minutes out of the city.
As soon as he finished high
school, he joined the Navy and at
the age of 17 was a Navy radar
man in the South Pacific.
His family teases him about the
World War II trophy he brought
home: a trophy for playing on the
winning basketball team that flew
around the Pacific Islands as part
of the Navy's recreation program.

Hospital scheduled to go into effect, July 2, when shifts from the west to the east side of the hospital.

Drivers Urged To Exercise Care as

Traffic Pattern at Gorgas Changes

Patients and visitors at Gorgas
Hospital are asked to have patience
with the changed traffic pattern at
the hospital when the construction
work on the seismic rehabilitation
shifts from the east to the west
side of the building on July 2.
The construction is scheduled for
completion in April 1977, and is
being performed by Bildon, Ltd.
Two 6-story concrete pylons-one
on the east and one on the west
side of the hospital-are being built
to strengthen the building against
During this second phase of the
construction work, the main en-
trance at the west side of the hos-
pital will be temporarily closed and
a temporary bus stop and shelter
will be constructed at the foot of
the entrance ramp. The entrance
to the hospital at the basement

parking area will be used as the
main entrance. Temporarily ve-
hicular traffic will enter the base-
ment area from Corgas Road, as
it now does, and will have two
exits to choose from instead of only
one as at present. Drivers will be
able to circle left and exit to
Gorgas Road or turn right at the
east side of the building and leave
by way of Culebra Road to Herrick
Road. Directional signs will guide
patients and visitors to the tem-
porary main entrance and to the
emergency entrance via the detour.
The Gorgas Road entrance to
the emergency room will be closed
to traffic and all emergency ve-
hicles will enter and exit the emer-
gency room area via Culebra Road.
It is expected that the tem-
porary closure of the main en-
trance to the hospital, and of the

Corgas Road entrance to the emer-
gency room, will exist for 6 months.
To minimize the effect of the
tight parking situation during the
construction work, patients and
visitors are asked to lend their co-
operation in the following ways:
-When possible, have someone
drive you to the hospital and drop
you off or take a taxi.
-If you cannot have someone
drop you off at the hospital, keep
in mind that you will probably
have to park at a greater distance
from the hospital than usual. Try
to leave earlier when going to the
hospital, allowing yourself more
time to find a parking space and
to walk to the hospital.
-Drive and walk with extra
-Keep on the lookout for con-
struction workers and equipment.

Handicapped Program in develop-
ing and evaluating the Company-
Government program for handi-
capped individuals.
T'he Coordinator for the Em-

of the Personnel Bureau's Special
Placement Unit. Other commit-
tee members include: Dr. Andries
de Boer, Chief, Industrial Health
Branch; Marjorie Foster, Staffing
Clerk, Central Examining Office;
Seymour Greenidge, Guard, Canal
Protection Division; Wallace Jo-
busch, Chief, Architectural Branch;
Phillip M. Koncir, Contraband

Division of Schools.
At this meeting the Coordinator
briefed the committee on the FY
1977 Affirmative Action Plan sub-
mitted by the Company-Govern-

Commission. The plan contains
several action items that should
be completed during the fiscal year
and which will serve to improve

In 1922, Zemer transferred to
the Tivoli Hotel and worked there
5 years as assistant manager and,
on several occasions, as acting
These were the years when the
Tivoli was the tourist center of the
Isthmus with 1,000 to 1,500 visitors
a day. Zemer began the famous
buffet lunches with salads of
mounds of native fruit which re-
mained a Tivoli favorite almost to
the day it was torn down. He also
is credited with another Tivoli
special: sherbet made from papa-
yas and Taboga Island pineapples.
The manager was on leave when
the Prince of Wales came to visit
and Zemer was in charge of prep-
arations for the Prince's afternoon
reception given by the British
Minister to Panama and for a ball
the same night. They were the
social events of the year.
In 1927 he was promoted again
when he transferred to the District
Quartermaster of Balboa Heights
where he was the Panama Canal
real estate agent until 1953 when
he was appointed Safety Inspector
for the Community Services Bu-
reau, a position he held until he

According to Panama Canal
records, Emmett Zemer retired al-
most 20 years ago. But the truth
is, he has never retired. He is the
longtime Canal Zone representa-
tive for Hamms Beer, and for the
past 6 years has represented
Wilson Harrell & Co., a world-
wide military brokerage firm, in
the Canal Zone where his "terri-
tory" consists of the Panama Canal
Company, U.S. Army Commissary,
Army-Air Force, Navy and Marine
Corps exchanges.
A recent tribute to "Our Man in
Panama" in the Wilson Harrell
house organ credits Zemer with
increasing sales each year by 20
percent since he joined the firm.

Square Dance News
The Revivers Quadrille Group
has completed plans for an ex-
tended Visitors Night, to be held
at Kelvin's Place, 16th Street, Rio
Abajo, Panama City, commencing
at 9 p.m., Friday, July 2.
Music will be furnished by Pro-
fessor Eric Garcia and his Progres-
sive Five.
All Quadrille dancers are invited.

Recently Mr. Smith delivered to
Curundu Junior High School a
generous quantity of past years'
National Geographic Magazines.
These volumes not only aug-
mented the present numbers in the
school's library, they also filled the
gaps that resulted by lost or
strayed past issues.
Mr. Smith graciously took it
upon himself to telephone his offer

of magazines and then to provide
his own transportation to deliver
them but before he could be
thanked, he vanished, a thoughtful
but unthanked man.
Mr. Smith (first name unknown),
will you kindly telephone Curundu
Junior High School, identify your-
self, and permit the principal to
thank you for your generosity.

Rayos Matan Mas Que las Tormentas e Inundaciones

Reglas de Seguridad
Que le Ayudardn
A Evitar Accidentes

Los rayos causan mis muertes
en los Estados Unidos que los tor-
nados, inundaciones y huracanes.
Sin embargo, conforme a la Ad-
ministraci6n Nacional Oceanica y
Atmosferica (NOAA), una depen-
dencia del Departamento de Co-
mercio, muchas personas no cono-
cen los simples reglamentos que
podrian salvar sus vidas durante
una tormenta el6ctrica.
El rayo mata a una sola persona
a la vez por lo que atrae menos la
atenci6n que los huracanes, torna-
dos, e inundaciones que son mAs
espectaculares y matan a cientos
de personas de un s6lo golpe.
No obstante, durante el period
de 34 afios que termin6 el 19 de
enero de 1974, los rayos mataron
cerca de 7,000 norteamericanos, o
sea, 55 por ciento mis de los que
murieron a causa de tornados y
por lo menos 41 por ciento mis
del n6mero combinado de muer-
tes ocasionadas por huracanes e
Despu6s de documentary por
afios casos sobre descargas el6c-
tricas, el Servicio Nacional del
Tiempo y el Servicio de Datos
Ambientales de la NOAA han pre-
parado una list de reglamentos
de seguridad para evitar muertes
o perjuicios ocasionados por rayos.
Lo primero es simplemente re-
conocer las sefias de una torment
que estA por venir-las que traen

los rayos. Est6 al tanto de los
clmulos de nubes, el retumbar
distant del trueno, y el destello
occasional del relAmpago lo que in-
dica que se aproxima una tormen-
ta. Tambi6n escuche los pron6s-
ticos y avisos que da el Servicio
Nacional del Tiempo a trav6s de
la radio y television. Normalmen-
te siempre hay tiempo para buscar
Cuando existe amenaza de una
tormenta, los experts concuerdan
en que lo mis important que hay
que hacer es ampararse en una
casa o edificio grande, o en un
vehiculo todo de metal (no con-
vertible). Un auto o cami6n ce-
rrado es un excelente protector.
Si el rayo cae alli, la corriente se
descargara en la tierra.
Dcntro de una casa, evite usar
el tel6fono except en caso de
Si esta a la intemperie y no tie-
ne tiempo para buscar un edificio
o autom6vil, at6ngase a las si-
guientes reglas:
* No se coloque bajo un para-
rrayo natural como un irbol alto
y aislado en una zona abierta.
* Evite proyectarse sobre el te-
rreno que le rodea, como es el
caso si se parara en un cerro, en
un campo abierto, o en la playa,
o estuviera pescando en un bote
* Salga del agua y al6jese. (Si
esti nadando una descarga el6c-
trica que haya caido cerca puede
fluir por el agua hasta usted.)
* Aldjese de tractores y todo
equipo agricola de metal.
* Al6jese de motocicletas, carros
de golf, y bicicletas. Suclte los
palos de golf.
* A16jese de cercas de alambre,
tendederos, tuberias de metal, rie-

les o cualquier otro objeto meti-
lico que pueda conducir el rayo
hasta usted.
+ Evite colocarse en refugios
pequefios aislados o cualquier otra
estructura pequefia en Areas abier-
* En un bosque, busque refugio
en un lugar bajo, debajo del fo-
Ilaje tupido de arboles pequenos.
En Areas abiertas, busque un lugar
bajo, como un barranco o un valle.
* Si estA aislado totalmente en
un campo o pradera plana y sien-
te que el cabello se le para de
punta-lo que indica que el rayo
esta a punto de caer-tirese al
suelo sobre las rodillas y d6blese
poniendo las manos sobre las rodi-
llas. En esta posici6n, si el rayo
cae cerca de usted, se minimizan
las probabilidades de que su cuer-
po sea conductor de electricidad.
(En el pasado, algunas autoridades
recomendaban acostarse en el sue-
lo para estar lo mAs abajo possible.
Sin embargo, la Comisi6n Interna-
cional sobre Electricidad Atmos-
f6rica de la Organizaci6n Mundial
de Metereologia ya no aprueba
dicha prActica. En su lugar, reco-
mienda que se arrodille para man-
tener un perfil bajo y que a la vez
s6lo una pequefia part del cuerpo
est6 en contact con el suelo. La
Comisi6n tambi6n aconseja que no
se acueste en una zanja o hueco
donde el agua de la superficie o
el suelo saturado de aceite puedan
servir como conductores de elec-
* Grupos de personas que es-
t6n expuestas al aire libre como
integrantes de caminatas, o alpi-
nistas deben separarse varies me-
tros de manera que si cae un rayo
el menor nimero de personas se
vean afectadas.

Muchas personas que al parecer
han sido "matadas" por un rayo
pueden revivirse si se toman
los pasos necesarios rApidamente.
Cuando un grupo se ve afectado,
los que estAn aparentemente muer-
tos deben ser tratados primero; los
que estAn inconcientes pero que
respiran probablemente se recupe-
rarAn espontAneamente.
De acuerdo con la Cruz Roja,
se debe dar primeros auxilios a los
que no estin respirando dentro de
los 4 6 6 minutes para prevenir
el dafio irrevocable al cerebro. Se
debe administrar respiraci6n de
boca a boca una vez cada 5 se-
gundos a adults y una vez cada
3 segundos a infants y niiios

pequefios hasta que llegue la ayu-
da m6dica.
Si la victim no estA respirando
y no tiene pulso, es necesario uti-
lizar la resucitaci6n cardio-pulmo-
nar. Esta es una combinaci6n de
respiraci6n de boca a boca y com-
presi6n cardiac externa. Debe ser
administrada por personas adies-
tradas en esa tecnica. Los capitu-
los locales de la Cruz Roja y la
Asociaci6n Cardiaca ensefian esta
t6cnica en un s61o dia.
Tambi6n debe darsele atenci6n
midica a las victims que apa-
rezcan aturdidas temporalmente o
que no hayan sufrido dafio puesto

Robert L. Jones es un veteran
ferroviario y persona muy especial
para los pasajeros del Ferrocarril
de Panami.
Seg6in la descripci6n de su tra-
bajo, es el revisor encargado del
tren y de la seguridad de los via-
jeros y ademAs debe Ilevar los li-
bros de contabilidad de sus turnos.
Para los pasajeros, 6l es el "anfi-
tri6n" que saluda y trata a los pa-
sajeros, especialmente a los viaje-
ros regulars, como si fueran sus
invitados personales.
Antes de vivir en el tr6pico, Bob
trabaj6 en el Ferrocarril de Alaska,
cuyo recorrido es de 400 mills
entire Fairbanks y Seward.
Su esposa, Marcia, dice que du-
rante 10 afios ella y su pequefio
hijo se la pasaron "corriendo tras
de 'l", de estaci6n en estaci6n,
viviendo en lugares rcmotos; en
una ocasi6n en una cabafia r6stica
y, en otra, en una choza que cons-
truyeron unos estibadores.
Ansioso por cambiar de pano-
rama, Bob hizo una solicitud de
empleo en el Ferrocarril de Pana-
mi al ver anunciada una vacant
en una publicaci6n del Servicio
Civil. Por espacio de 2 afios no
recibi6 noticia alguna, pero un dia
lleg6 a casa y le dijo a Marcia que
el Ferrocarril de PanamA lo habia
aceptado y tenian que estar en

la Zona del Canal en 3 semanas.
A pesar de que tuvieron que es-
perar a que sc derriticra el hielo
antes de conducir hasta Nueva
Orleans, Ilegaron a la Zona del
Canal en abril de 1962. A los
Jones les gustaba la vida ruda del
Alaska de hace 25 afios; hoy dia
les gusta la vida mlis c6moda y
pausada de la Zona del Canal.
Esperan con gran anticipaci6n la
jubilaci6n para "vivir como los
Astor" en el rancho de su propie-
dad en Mission, Texas, done tie-
nen 4,000 metros cuadrados sem-
brados de toronjas, y durante el
verano, en la casa que poseen en
Risk Canyon, Colorado.
"Snowflake" (copo de nieve)
como le apodaron sus compafieros
tan pronto lleg6 de Alaska, naci6
en Lincoln, Nebraska, y creci6 en
un pueblo a unos 45 minutes de
la ciudad.
Al terminal la escuela secunda-
ria, ingres6 a la Armada y a los 17
afios era operator de radar en el
Pacifico Sur.
Su familiar siempre lo estA mo-
lestando por el trofeo que gan6
en la II Guerra Mundial-por jugar
en el equipo vencedor de balon-
cesto que recorri6 las islas del
Pacifico como parte del program
de recreaci6n para la Armada.

Cambio en Trafico Vehicular del Gorgas

Requiere Cuidado por los Conductores

La Direcci6n de Salubridad ins-
ta a los pacientes y visitantes que
tengan paciencia con los cambios
que se produciran el 2 de julio en
el trinsito vehicular del Hospital
Gorgas cuando se trasladen los
trabajos del proyecto de rehabili-
taci6n sismica del lado este al lado
oeste del cdificio.
El proyecto, que se espera con-
cluya en abril de 1977, esta a car-
go de Bildon, Ltd., que estai cons-
truyendo dos pilones de concrete
de 6 pisos de alto en ambos lados
del edificio para reforzarlo contra
los temblores.
Durante la segunda fase del tra-
bajo de construcci6n, la entrada
principal, que esta al lado oeste
del cdificio, quedara cerrada tem-
poralmente y se construirn al pie
de la rampa de entrada una caseta
provisional para parade do buses.
La entrada al Area de estaciona-
miento del sotano serA usada como
entrada principal.

Los vehiculos entrarAn al irea
del s6tano por la Calle Gorgas
como lo hacen en la actualidad
pero tendrAin dos salidas en vez de
la salida imica que ahora tienen.
Los conductors podrAin dar la
vuelta por la izquierda y salir a la
Calle Gorgas o girar a la derecha
por el lado este del edificio y salir
a la Calle Culcbra hacia la Calle
Sc instalariin letreros que sirvan
de guia a'pacientes y visitantes

temporal y la entrada de urgencia
por cl desvio.

rrarA al transito y todos los ve-
hiculos de urgencia entrarin al
irea del cuarto de urgencia y sal-
(tran de alli por la Calle Culebra.
El cierre temporal de la entra-
da principal del hospital y el de la
entrada al cuarto de urgencia por

la Calle Gorgas durarA unos 6
Para minimizar los efectos de las
escasas facilidades de estaciona-
miento mientras duren los trabajos
de construcci6n, se solicita a los
pacientes y visitantes colaborar en
las siguientes maneras:
-Cuando sea possible, solicite a
alguien que lo lleve al hospital.
-Si no tiene quien lo ileve al
hospital, tenga en cuenta que pro-
bablemente tendri que estacionar
a una distancia mayor que la de
costumbre. Trate de salir de su
casa mas temprano cuando vaya al
hospital a fin de tener tiempo su-
ficiente para encontrar un lugar
donde estacionar y caminar hasta
el hospital.
-Conduzca y camine con much
-Est6 alerta a los trabajadores
y equipo de construcci6n.

dente electo luego le dijo al joven
Zemer, "venga a visitarnos si viene
a Washington".
En 1922 Zemer se traslad6 al
Hotel Tivoli y trabaj6 5 aios como
gerente asistente, y en varias oca-
siones como gerente interino.
Eran los dias en que el Tivoli
era el centro turistico del Istmo y
tenia de 1,000 a 1,500 visitantes
diaries. Zemer ide6 el famoso al-
muerzo-ambig6 con ensaladas pre-
paradas con frutas del pais que
continue siendo muy popular casi
hasta el dia que el hotel fue des-
mantelado. Tambi6n se ileva el
cr6dito por un posture especial del
Tivoli: sorbetes de papaya y de
pifias de la Isla de Taboga.
El gerente se encontraba de va-
caciones cuando el Principe de
Gales vino de visit y a Zemer le
toc6 hacer todos los preparativos
para una recepci6n que brind6 el
Ministro BritAnico en la tarde y
para el baile de esa misma noche.

vicios Comunales, posici6n que de-

Zemer dice que siempre ha con-
siderado el Cuatro de Julio el dia

opina que es important que los
j6venes norteamericanos lo reco-
nozcan como el dia especial que
es. Puesto que teme que la gente
haya perdido la noci6n de lo sig-
nificativo que es dicha fecha, se
siente muy complacido de haber

sido invitado a participar en la
celebraci6n del Bicentenario de los
Estados Unidos.
Seg6n los archives del Canal de
Panama, Emmett Zemer se jubil6
hace unos 20 aois. Pero la verdad
es que l6 nunca se ha jubilado.

presentante de la Cerveza Hamms
para la Zona del Canal, y durante
los 61timos 6 afios tiene la repre-
sentaci6n de una empresa mundial
de corretaje military, Wilson Harrell
& Co., para la Zona del Canal en
donde su "territorio" lo integran
la empresa del Canal de PanamA,
los Comisariatos del Ej6rcito, de
la Fuerza Airea, de la Armada y
de la Marina.
Recientemente "Nuestro Hom-
bre en Panami", publicaci6n de la
casa Wilson Harrell, le rindi6 tri-

ventas habia aumentado en un 20
