More Than 63 Years of Service to World Commerce

The Panama Canal Spillway

Vol. XVI, No. 23 Friday, January 27, 1978

After 39 Years E&C Deputy Director Off to Orient

Carl J. Browne, deputy director,
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau since 1965, is winding up his
Canal career of more than 39 years
and retiring at the end of the
month. He and his wife, the former
Blanche Adler, will make their
home in Columbia, S.C., after an
extended tour of the Orient.
As Deputy Director of the Engi-
neering and Construction Bureau
for the past 12 years, Browne has
provided continuity in bureau oper-
ations as he has introduced each
new bureau director, who is a mil-
itary officer assigned for a 3-year
tour of duty, to the myriad of func-
tions and complex interrelationships
involved in the Canal enterprise.,
Born in Avon, N.Y., Browne was
graduated in 1938 from Cornell
University as a civil engineer. -He
later attended Cornell Graduate
School of Public Administration.
Hle successfully completed the U.S.
Civil Service Commission's Execu-
live Seminar, "Federal Program
Management" at Kings Point, N.Y.
in 1966, and the Brookings Institu-
tion's "Federal Program and Man-
agement Executives Conference" in

Williamsburg, Va., in February
Immediately following gradua-
tion in 1938 he joined the Panama
Canal, beginning his distinguished

Carl J. Browne

career as a student engineer. A year
later, he went to work on the
various phases of construction in the
field, advancing to project manager

which involved supervision of both
construction and maintenance of
field construction projects ranging
from housing to oil handling facili-
ties. Going up the ladder of promo-
tions, Browne has held the position
of Assistant to Construction Quar-
termaster, Junior Engineer, Assist-
ant Building Engineer (Building
Division); Chief, Southern District,
Maintenance Division; and Mainte-
nance Engineer, prior to his present
Browne was on active military
duty from 1942 to 1946.
As Deputy Director of the bu-
reau, he has had the responsibility
of coordinating projects between
the Panama Canal and the Repub-
lic of Panama and his expertise and
technical advice in the utilities field
have contributed significantly to
better relations between the United
States and Panama.
In recognition of his superior
service to the Canal organization,
he 'has been the recipient of eight
Outstanding Performance Awards.
In 1960, he was presented a Master
Key to the Locks in the grade of
(Continued on p. 4)

Senator Jacob Javits (R-New York)
told a group of civic council and
labor representatives that the pos-
sibility of losing 70 percent of the
Canal organization's United States
workforce if the new treaties with
Panama are ratified is a risk the
Senate may have to take.
The Senator's statement was in
response to a comment made by a
Canal Zone resident that in a re-
cent polling, 70 percent of the
U.S.-citizen Canal employees in-
dicated they would leave the Isth-
mus if the treaties are passed.
Senators Javits and Paul Sarbanes
(D-Maryland) met with community
members in a private home in the
Canal Zone during their visit here
last week as part of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee dele-
Also on the Isthmus were Com-
mittee Chairman John Sparkman
(D-Alabama), and Senators Frank
Church (D-Idaho), Claiborne Pell
(DI-Rhode Island), Clifford Case
(R-New Jersey), and Charles Percy
(R-Illinois), here to gather informa-
tion before the committee's final
hearings on the Treaty resolution.
'Community members voiced con-
cern to the two Senators about the
protection of human rights in the
Canal Zone with the handing over
of jurisdictional control to the
Republic of Panama at the .end of
the 3-year transition period pro-
vided for in the treaties.
Senator Javits responded to that
issue by saying; "My own judgment
is that there is very little likelihood
of abuse of human rights which we
will be unable to redress as long
as our physical presence is so omni-
present here, and it will be until
the year 2000."
Both Senators stressed to -the
group that very few of those pre-
sently employed with the Canal or-
ganization will still be of working
age 23 years from now when Pan-
ama would assume control if rati-
fication takes place. Sarbanes told
the community representatives,
"The fact is the Canal is not going
.to be turned over to Panama in any
meaningful sense of that term until,
the end of the century."

Asked whether he would be
willing to support an amendment
suggested by Senator Robert Dole
(R-Kansas) that the transition
period be extended to the year
1990, Javits replied that he would
"not make any pledges of any kind
or character about supporting
amendments" and said he was there
to get the employee's point of view
and to express his own to them.
The Senator pointed out to one
community member concerned over
the human rights issue that there
already are U.S. citizens living
under Panamanian jurisdiction in
the Republic and that the relation-
ship seems to be working out. The
resident responded that apparently
the Treaty negotiators had some
fears that it wouldn't work as well
with the U.S. citizens in the Canal
Zone since they included in the
Treaty a provision' of diplomatic
immunity for top level Canal
Commission VIPs.
One Latin American council rep-
resentative who was present told
the Senators that neither the Treaty
nor its implementing legislation
properly addresses the needs of the
Canal employee. He told them,
"You need to amend the fuzzy lan-
guage [in the Treaty] that takes
care of the employees because you
need employees to operate this
A labor representative pointed
out that the proposed early retire-
ment legislation required by Ar-
ticle X of the Treaty is "not very
much more liberal than what is
now on the books." He encouraged
the Senators to offer inducements
that would make it worthwhile for
employees to stay.
Javits replied that he realized
after his visit here a year ago that
a "principal problem" resulting
from passage of the Treaty would
be "the people who work here."
He said he wrote in a report on
his last visit that "We may find
we have a Canal but nobody to
operate it."
Senator Javits said that if the
Senate decides to ratify the treaties
it will not be because they are the

United Way To Stage 'Sound of Music' in August

The popular Broadway musical
The Sound of Music has heen
chosen by the Canal Zone United
Way for presentation this summer.
The Rodgers and Hammerstein
classic will be directed by Bruce
Quinn and coproduced with tlhe
Theatre Guild.
The Sound of Music is the story
of the Von Trapp family, who es-
caped from their native Austria at
the beginning of the Nazi occupa-
tion in the late 1930's. The musical
centers on Maria, a young pos-
tulant who leaves the convent to
become governess to the seven

children of widower Von Trapp.
From this relationship blossoms a
story of love and courage.
The show was a popular success
on Broadway, with Mary Martin
portraying Maria Von Trapp, and
the film version won an Academy
Award for actress-singer Julie
Andrews in the same role.
Casting for the local production
will begin in June, with a proposed
15-night run during the month of
August. Plans are to present The
Sound of Music in both English
and Spanish, necessitating two

casts. There will be opportunities
for youngsters and adults alike to
participate in major singing and
acting roles.
This is the 15th consecutive
year that the United Way has pre-
sented a major play to the Canal
Zone community. In addition to
coproducing My Fair Lady and
Applause! with the Theatre Guild,
the United Way has done Okla-
homa!, The King and I, The Music
Man, West Side Story, Show Boat,
Oliver!, 1776, Fiddler on the Roof,
Camelot, The Wizard of Oz, Man
of La Mancha, and Maine.

Gov. H. R. Parfitt shows actor John Wayne the "before" and "after"
pictures of the Canal and the' Canal Zone in the latest edition of the
PANAMA CANAL REVIEw. Work came to a halt for a few minutes at the
Administration Building as employees tried to get a glimpse of The Duke
as he arrived to visit with the Governor.

of the observance, the SPILLWAY, in
cooperation with the Panama Canal
Zone Dental Society, begins a series
of articles on facts you should know
about dental health.
The dentist has told us that our
13-year-old son has gum disease.
How can this develop in someone
so young?
Gum disease accounts for the
greatest amount of tooth loss in
adults, but it also affects children.
According to recent U.S. Depart-
ment of Health, Education and
Welfare statistics, approximately
68 percent of the Nation's youth
have some visible form of periodon-
tal or gum disease-generally of a
mild type.
Unfortunately, unless preventive
measures are taken, the disease
progresses over a long period of
time with little or no pain, de-
stroying the gums, bone and other
structures that support the teeth.
Often a large percentage of peri-

odontal problems in later life can
be traced to neglect or improper

The problem begins with dental
plaque, which is the sticky, color-
less substance that forms constantly
on everyone's.teeth. The bacteria in
plaque utilizes the sugars you eat
to produce harmful acids that attack
the teeth and cause caries. But this
same substance also irritates the
gums, making them tender and
likely to bleed. If plaque is not
removed daily by careful brushing
and flossing, it will thicken into a
deposit called calculus. As the cal-
culus accumulates, the gums slowly
detach from the teeth leaving deep
pockets where bacteria and debris
Eventually, if left untreated, the
tissues and bones around the teeth
are destroyed, and healthy teeth
loosen and are lost.
There generally are two stages of
periodontal disease: gingivitis or
inflamed gums and periodontitis
which involves the bones sup-
porting the teeth.
The best method of prevention is
regular brushing and flossing, reg-
ular visits to your family dentist
and proper nutrition.

World Famous Medical Researcher Gives Lecture on Cancer at Gorgas Hospital

Dr. Albert B. Sabin, Distinguished
Research Professor of Biomedicine
of the Medical University of South
Carolina, was on the Isthmus last
week as a guest of the Panamanian
Society of Infectious Diseases.
Sabin, who is world reknowned for
his development of the oral polio
vaccine, is the author of over 300
papers on such subjects as virus
diseases of the nervous system, en-
cephalitis, dengue, sandflea fever,
and viruses and cancer.
Addressing medical personnel of
Gorgas Hospital at a special session
arranged by the Society, Sabin said
this was his second visit to the
(:anal Zone. He was sent here for
"rest and recuperation" in 1946
while serving as a colonel in the
Armed Forces after World War II,
but said he found Gorgas Hos-
pital records so fascinating that he
spent his time here researching
The 72-year-old scientist spoke
to the group about immunologic
research on cancer, a field of study
that he has dedicated great amounts
of time to. The thrust of his lec-
ture was that human cancer is not
caused by viruses, an issue of great
debate in the medical world. He
said that 15 years of research have
shown that human cancer cells are
not foreign cells but are normal
cells that contain substances not
usually present in the cell except
at the time of fetal development.
What this means, said Sabin, is
that a human cannot be immunized
against cancer, as he can be for
viral diseases such as polio, since it
would be a case of immunizing
against his own cells.
Sabin said that the discovery of
substances in cancer cells that are
normally present only during the
development of the fetus is an im-
portant factor in detecting the
beginning of a cancer and/or its
recurrence. A method developed
for measuring these substances in
circulating blood can confirm a
diagnosis of cancer, he explained,
or show after treatment whether
the cancer has returned.

In an interview after the lec-
ture, Sabin commented, "Although
there is still so much to learn about
the nature of human cancer and its
control, a diagnosis of cancer
should not be regarded as a death
sentence. A considerable proportion
of the population has a much
higher chance of having life ex-
tended by the methods that are
now available."
Sabin, who admits to working
"sometimes more than 12 hours a

day," responded vigorously when
asked about the emphasis being put
once again in the United States on
making sure children are im-
munized against polio. He said,
"The problem in the United States
is not polio, it's measles."
The doctor explained that while
98 percent of the population is now
immune to polio, only about 65
percent is immune to the red meas-
les, also a dangerous viral disease.
This is due to the fact, he said, that

there was a mass immunization pro-
gram in the United States at one
time against polio, resulting over
the years in the contagious polio
paralytic virus being virtually re-
placed by the also contagious polio
vaccine virus. The end result has
been a population "vaccinating"
one another.
Sabin puts the blame for the
measles situation in the United
States on health authorities, who he
feels should make measles vaccine

as available as polio vaccine was
in the 1950's. Unlike polio, which
can also be transmitted by animals,
measles is only found in human
beings and could be wiped out by
mass immunization in the same way
smallpox has been.
After his stay in Panama, where
he addressed numerous medical
groups, Sabin travelled on to South
America, accompanied by his wife,
where he will continue his lecture


The man whose development of oral polio vaccine has provided millions
of children around the world with longer and more effective immunity
against that dread disease is seen at Miraflores Locks with a few of the

beneficiaries of his research. Dr. Albert Bruce Sabin poses with pre-
kindergartners from Fort Clayton during his visit to the Isthmus as a
guest of the Panamanian Society of Infectious Diseases.

El Senador Jacob Javits (R-Nue-
va York) dijo a un grupo de repre-
sentantes de los consejos civicos y
de los sindicatos laborales que la
posibilidad de perder el 70 por
ciento de las mano de obra esta-
dounidense que trabaja en la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal, si los nuevos
tratados con Panama son ratificados,
es un riesgo que el Senado tendrA
que correr.
La declaraci6n del Senador fue
en contestaci6n a un comentario
hecho por un resident de la Zona
del Canal de que en una encuesta
reciente, el 70 por ciento de los em-
pleados estadounidenses del Canal
indic6 que se iria del Istmo si los
M= tratados son aprobados.
Durante su visit aqui la semana

inquietudes sobre la protecci6n de

diccional de la Zona del Canal pase
a la Republica de PanamA al cabo

erii- cuales estariamos en capacidad de
ruc- remediar mientras nuestra presencia

sobre hechos que used deberia

que nuestro hijo de 13 aiios tiene

adults, pero tambien afecta a los
nifios. Seg6n las iltimas 'estadisticas
del Departamento de Sanidad, Edu-
caci6n y Bienestar Social de los Es-
tados Unidos, aproximadamente el
68 por ciento de la juventud de la
Naci6n muestra sefias visible de
enfermedad period6ntica o de las
encias-generalmente de tipo leve.
Desafortunadamente, a menos
que se tomen medidas preventivas,
la enfermedad progress sobre largo
period de tiempo con poco o nin-
gmin dolor, destruyendo las encias,
el huesp y otras estructuras que so-
portan los dientes. Con frecuencia
un mayor porcentaje de los proble-
mas period6nticos que se presentan
mais tarde en la vida, pueden atri-
buirse a negligencia o a higiene

oral inadecuada durante la nifiez.
El problema comnienza con la pla-
ca bacteriana que es una substancia
pegajosa e incolora que se encuen-
tra en la boca de todas las personas.
Poco despubs de habe ringerido co-
midas o bebidas azucaradas, las bac-
terias de la placa comienzan a pro-
ducir Acidos daiiinos que atacan el
esmalte de los dientes. La.frecuente
y repetida exposici6n a substancias
azucaradas hace que estos Acidos
desgasten el esmalte, eventualmen-
te produciendo las caries. Pero esta
misma substancia tambien causa
irritaci6n de las encias, haciendolas
sensibles hasta el punto de sangrar.
Si la placa no es removida a diario
mediante la limpieza cuidadosa con
cepillo de dientes y con hilo dental,
se pondrA espesa hasta convertirse
en un dep6sito llamado cAlculo den-
tal. A media que se acumula el
cAlculo, las encias lentamente se
van separando de los dientes, de-
jando bolsas profundas donde se
acumula la bacteria.
Eventualmente, si no se recibe
tratamiento, los tejidos y los huesos
alrededor de los dientes son des-
truidos, y los dientes saludables se
aflojan y se caen.
Generalmente hay dos etapas de
enfermedad period6ntica: gingivitis
o encias inflamadas y periodontitis,
irritaci6n de la raiz dental.
La mejor media de prevention
es: cepillarse los dientes regular-
mente y limpiarlos con hilo dental,
hacer visits regulars al dentist y
observer una dieta adecuada.

Investigador Midico de Fama Mundial da Plitica Sobre Cincer en el Hospital Gorgas

El Dr. Albert B. Sabin, distingui-
do Profesor e Investigador de Bio-
medicina de la Universidad de Me-
dicina de Carolina del Sur, visit el
Istmo la semana pasada como hu6s-
ped de la Sociedad Panamefia de
Enfermedades Infecciosas. Sabin,
mundialmente conocido por su de-
sarrollo de la vacuna oral contra la
polio, es el author de-mais de 300 es-
tudios en temas tales como enfer-
medades infecciosas del sistemn ner-
vioso, encefalitis, dengue, fiebre
transmitida por la chitra, y los virus
v el cancer.
Dirigi6ndose al personal m6dico
del Hospital Gorgas durante una
sesi6n especial organizada por la
Sociedad, Sabin dijo que 6sta era
su segunda visit. a la Zona del
Canal. Fue enviado aqui para des-
canso y recuperaci6n en 1946 can-
do prestaba servicio como coronel
en las Fuerzas Armadas despuos de
la II Guerra Mundial, y dijo que
encontr6 los archives del Hospital
Gorgas tan fascinantes que pas6
todo su tiempo aqui investigfindolos.
,El cientifico de 72 afios de edad
hab16 al grupo sore la investiga-
ci6n inmunol6gica del cAncer, un
campo de studio al cual ha dedi-
cado largo tiempo. La culminaci6n
de su conferencia fue cuando dijo
que el cAncer en los himanos no
es causado por los virus, un proble-
ma de gran debate en el mundo de
la medicine. Dijo que sus 15 anios
de investigaci6n habian demostrado
que las cAlulas del cAncer en el hu-
mano no son c6lulas extrafias sino
c6lulas normales que contienen
substancias que usualmente no es-
tAn presents en la c6lula salvo du-
rante el period de desarrollo del
feto. Lo que esto significa, dice
Sabin, es que un ser hlumano no
puede ser inmunizado contra el
cAncer, como lo puede ser contra
las enfermedades infecciosas tales
como polio, ya que seria un caso de
inmunizaci6n contra sus propias
Sabin dijo que el descubrimiento
de substancias en las cAlulas del
cancer que normalmente estAn pre-
sentes s6lo durante el period de
desarrollo del feto; es un factor im-
portante para detector el comienzo
de un cAncer o su reaparici6n. Un
metodo que fue desarrollado para
medir estas substancias en la sangre

cuando circula puede confirmar el
diagnostico del cAncef, cxplic6, o
demostrar despubs del tratamiento
si el cancer ha reaparecido.
En una entrevista despu6s de la
confcrencia, Sabin coment6, "Aun-
que todavia hay much por apron-
der sore la naturaleza del cAncer
humnano y su control, un diagnosti-
co del cAncer no debe considerarse
como una sentencia de mueite. Una
proporci6n considerable dej la po-
blaci6n tiene mayor oportunidad de
que le prolonguen la vida mediante
la aplicaci6n de los m6todos que
hay disponibles hoy dia".

El Dr. Sabin, que admite que ha
trabajado "algunas veces hasta mris
de 12 horas al dia", responded vigo-
rosamente cuando le preguntaron
sore el 6nfasis que en los Estados
Unidos han puesto una vez mas de
asegurar que los niflos sean inmu-
nizados contra la polio. Dijo, "El
prolblema en los Estados Unidos no
es la polio, sino el sarampi6n".
El doctor pas6 a explicar que
mientras el 98 por ciento de la po-
blaci6n ahora es inmune a la polio,
s6lo un 65 por ciento tiene inmu-
nidad contra la rubeola, tambi6n
una enfermedad contagiosa y peli-

grosa. Esto se debe al hecho, dijo,
de que en un tiempo hubo un pro-
grana do inmunizaci6n en masa en
los Estados Unidos contra la polio,
y durante el transcurso de los afos
el contagioso virus paralitico de la
polio fue reemplazado virtualmente
por el tambi6n contagioso virus de
la vacuna contra la polio. El resul-
tado final ha sido una poblaci6n
vacunAndose mutuamente.
El Dr. Sabin dice que la culpa
de la situaci6n del sarampi6n en los
Estados Unidos es de las autorida-
des de salubridad, que 61 piensa
deberian de tener la vacuna contra

el sarampi6n disponible como lo fue
la vacuna contra la polio en la dc-
cada del 50. A diferencia de la
polio, que tambien puede ser trans-
mitida por animals, el sarampi6n
s6lo es encontrado en series huma-
nos y podria ser eliminado median-
te la inmunizaci6n en masa de la
misma manera que se hizo con la
Despues de su estadia en Pana-
mA, donde habl6 a numerosos gru-
pos medicos, Sabin viaj6 a Sur
AmBrica, acompafiado de su espo-
sa, donde continuarA su gira pre-
sentando conferencias.
