OUT AT THE Ga;llard Cut 'front" in Nonemiber more than 300.000
cubic yardss of earth "ere moved in the speeded-up five-and-a-half-
million-dollar Canal "iidiiing project. At the ji'b heree Contractor
Mlerritt-Chapmnan and Scott has gathered a cro"d of some 220 non-
Ui. S. citizens ho draw a pa' roll of $75.400 a month, a Canal engineer
reported. "-Ve ha\e a lot of fi "a\ aing out here. but it's confined to
the red flags warning g of blasting operations. We know "hen our
e\plusions are coming.'
Elsex here the explosions "ere not so calculable. E en Canal "old-
tinmeis" confessed "for once" that thie had ,ne er knoi nl a month like it
before. November on the Isthmus ended lea ing mnans a \ ioutnd to
heal. some of them personal phIsical injuries, others international
otlunds to United States-Panama relations.
\ hen Independence WVeek activities began in celebration of Pan-
ama's 56th anni'ersars as an independent Republic. the folks fronm
the Balboa Fire Station. at Pan.ima's request. took the big Canal Zone
ladder truck o\er to the capital cit 's municipal building and made
flagsaff repairs so that the Panamnian i Hag could be raised by the
President in formal ceremonies illnaugurating the No ember 3 biithda\
program. On Children's Da\ the Canal Zone was host to 72S Pan-
anianian school children and 40 teachers for a cross-countrs train ride
and \isit to Catun Locks.
\\lien the celebiatiion ended. Independence Dat demonstrators.
unrestrained in Panama. had caused agitation at the Canal Zine border.
reiulting in monetary% costs which at last count exceeded $120.000 to
the Com!pan ,-Go ernnmet. This figure did not include similar costs
to the military\ ser ice.s the U1. S. Embassy or the United States In-
iormationt Ser ice. Amid it all. 47 Canal Zone policemen and firemen
and tone Railroad employ ee had been injured.
A thankful people took solace in the fact that the responsibility to
the community which h the\ senre as first and foremiust in the minds
of the Canal Zone police and firemen.
Still pertinent at the month's end "ere the remarks of "Kansas City
Star" Columnist Bill Vaughn in commenting on ine s dispatches from
Panamna:
"Current difficulties in the Panama Canal Zone briig out the U. S.
infantry\ %%ith bayonets 'bristling' and re\i\es the old question of
e\actl\ hoo one bristles a ba onet.
". \ welcome sound in the Canal Zone ill be the order from the
commanding officer: 'By the numbers! Ba\ onets! Uinbristle!' "

Traditionally, in a custom handed
down in Mr. Coffin's family, no cooking
is done on Christmas Day so that there
is time for visiting and enjoying visits.
On Christmas Eve all go to Mass, except
the littlest ones. Then, after everyone
has gone upstairs to bed, the little gate
at the foot of the stairs is closed. On
Christmas morning, Mr. Coffin is 'the
first to go downstairs. He turns on the
tree lights and the children file down-
stairs, in reversed order of their ages,

\\ITH THIS ISSI.E of THE RE IE\1, its staff says a regretful
goodll e to Earl A. Dyer, Sipcrirntendent of the Pan.iain
Canal's Printing Plant at Mouniit Hope. As of today\ he

bisiiies behind him.

January. lie and his \ ife sailed No\n ib,-r 20 on a
trciigliter for Caulifornia and their new home.
Throughout the life of THE REVIEw, Mr. Dyer's long
experience lias bec-n invaluable in solving the manii tech-
nical problem that arose .alonh the way. He helped to
select tle paper on ,i.\ hici it is printed the type ini which
it is set, the colors which are now used. Sometimes. in an
emergency, he even helped to _,et its type.
His backgrouiind was especially helpful several months
ago during the change from the long narrow form in
which this monthly publication was started to the
shorter, wider foin mat in \\ liih it now appears.
Born in \1aslinigton, D. C., he served an apprentice-
ship as a printer there. He had worked for over three
years with the Go\ ernment Printing Office in the capital
when lie first came to the Canal Zone as a monotype op-
erator in 1926. After two \ears at Mount Hope, he re-
turned to WV.asiniit,-in but he still felt an urge for the
tropics and in 19-41 was back again \ ithi the Panama
Canal's Printing Plant.
In mid-1953, he became foreman of the Monotype
Section, two years later he was promoted to what is
kniownr as "Group Chief," and in December, 1956, was
made Superintendent.

possessor of a Company-Government 40-\ ear service
award and carries a card showing 13 consecuti e \ears
as a safe dri\er.
He was born in Gatun on November 25, 1896. son of
Jamaican parents who came to the Isthmus during
French Canal construction days. From his first ob as
water bo\ with the Canal organization, he \worked up
to delivery boy, then a Commissary Di\ ision dri\v r. and
for many years the Canal Zone Chief Quartermastier's
driver. Some 15 years ago he was assigned tle care and
driving of the Governor's car in the Cristobal area.
His passengers have included many Very Important
Persons. When Queen Elizab.-th and Prince Philip isit-

NEW PROGRAM

at


ZONE SCHOOLS


A NEW PHYSICAL THERAPY service, designed to .,aiskt cliil-
dren with physical handicaps has just been introduced
into the Canal Zone schools with the arrival hclre oit lMi.
Shirley Francis, who has had 12 year's experience \\ork-
ing with crippled children.
Iiiaui,.iratio.ii of the new program marks the first time
that physiotherapy has been incorporated into the
schools themselves. Heretofore children w lho needed
such treatment were cared for at Gorgas Hcspit.l.
Now, at her headquarters at the Balboa EIenment.ir
School, Miss Francis is giving special care to childri-en
with neuro-ImusUl.Lar disorders, such as those from polio
or cerebral palsy, which require long-term treatment.
The children range in age from pre-school toits of t\wo
years up to junior high school students of 15. ThI-ir trea.t-
ments vary according to their needs. Some ar,: till %,ui k-
ing for head and sitting balance and learning tu, cratwl.
\\ ilh otlhiers are able to do more specific milsl e-strenl -
thening exercises, practice better walking b, -l re full
length mirror, or ride the bicycle exerciser.
The new program is coordinated through the Special
Ed cl-Liation Branch, with medical referrals throi.hl C;. r::is
Hospital and the Physical Therapy Departmlent tll:re.
No child is accepted without a doctor's prescription for
physical therapy.
Miss Francis, a Registered Physical Therapist. ciomies
to the Canal Zone from the Mh.,dv State Schoo-l for
Cerebral Palsied Children at Galveston, Tex.. \v.lire
she was Director of Rehabilitation, clinical super \ is or
for physical therapy students from the three tr.ilninig
schools in Texas, and guest lecturer at the UIiei.rsit\ o(
Texas Medical Branch.
Along with the introduction of the new pl\sical
therapy program came the inauguration of a s:l ie-s of
clinics. The first of these was held in Novermbeir at tlie
Balboa school.
The consultants were: Dr. Daniel Hirschl, pedli.atl ic .n
Dr. Ben L. Hull and Dr. R. F. L,:gg. orthopedists .J.
Shea, who is Gorgas Hospital's specialist in m.ikiitr; mdl
fitting braces; and Dr. Howard Pritham, school pl sic ian.
\\'irkinig with them were members of tli, speciall
Education staff, including James Wolf, coordiii.,it.r \iiss
Frlaicis: Dr. Mary M1iiroI clinical psychologist. Mrs.
Jean Karch, occtlipatioinial therapist. Miss Marilin Fl iin.
sp.etl, correctionist; and Miss Thelma Godwin. a teaciter
for the school's special classes.
The clinics open with a case history of each child to
be presented during that particular session-abouit s,-.een
are to be examined at each clinic. After a case liistor\
is presented, taking in the diagnosis of each chiild's par-
ticul.ar trouble, his previous illnesses, the therialp lie hias
received and like subjects, brief summaries are present t cd
by the others attending the clinic. Dr. Hirseil and one

tlh total of $11.3 mnlli-,n in improve-

which utilized the inter-oceanic water-

forecast for 1970, but also % ith ,ligramns
rl:e iewinl the Company's financial op-
erations.
For the eighth consecutive year, the
report shows, new records were estab-
lished in the number of transits, the
volume of cargo and the amount of
tolls,
Thl capital expenditure of $11.3
million cuiriparid to $7.7 million for
fiscal year 1958, went into channel im-
provements, including extensive widen-
ing and lighting projects, and the con-
tinued cone-i sion of the power system
and the locks electrical equipment to
60-cycle current.
whilel e gross tolls for the year, amount-
ing to $- 4.5 million, were at a new high
as compared with the previous record
of $42.S nillinl for the pilccdiniJI fiscal
yea.. opr r.at i expenses rose sharply.
Tlhi iiLcri.se was due primarily to
the full-year effect of wage increases

increased wages and retirement con-
tributions resulting from the Canal Zone
Wage and Enimp) inei-it Practices Act
(Ptblic Law 85-550), passed by Con-

increasing operating costs for the Com-
pany's current ,:,iitributiii.n to the re-
tirement fund, required payment by the
Company of $4.7 million into the Civil
Service Retirement Fund. This $4.7
million covered Company payments for
retirement, based on the prior years'
earnings of the non-U. S. citizen em-
ployees.
Meeting its requirement of being
self-supporting, plus refunding to the
United States Treasury the net cost of
civil government in the Canal Zone and
interest on the net direct investment,
the Company closed its 1959 fiscal
year with a net operating revenue of
$2,983,532, a slight increase over the
$2.7 million realized in fiscal year 1958.
Payroll and related costs, which total-
ed $41 million, accounted for nearly
half of the Company's expenses. A
quarter of last year's total expenses of
$84 million included the net cost of the
Canal Zone Government and a portion
of the annuity paid by the United States
to the Republic of Panama, together
with payments to the United States
Treasury to cover the interest on the
net investment of the U. S. Govern-
ment in the Panama Canal and depre-
ciation on depreciable assets valued at
$354 million. Other expenses include
the cost of commodities sold and ma-
rial purchased.
The net revenue does not reflect de-
preciation or amortization on certain
fixed assets such as the excavation of
the Canal channel and other similar
items valued at about $280 million and
classified by law as "non-depreciable."
The total equity of the United States
Government in the Panama Canal Com-
pany, as of June 30, amounted to
$459,712,896.
The recorded equity, which repre-
sents the unrecovered portion of the
gross one and a half billion dollars
which has been invested in the Canal
Zone operation, increased by $18.5
million during the fiscal year 1959.
Additions to the net direct invest-
ment included property transfers from
other Federal agencies, primarily the
Coco Solo townsite; plant reactivations;
and appropriations of $20 million for
the construction of a high level bridge
across the Canal at Balboa, as directed
by Congress.
Reductions included a further trans-
fer to the Republic of Panama of Com-
pany properties valued at $4.7 million.
This transfer was provided under the
1955 Treaty.
The fi!iain..I! S*.t.. _n-r!it have been
examined by the General Auditor of
the Company and are subject to audit
by the General Accounting Office which
reports its F, i.li c dii.tl t: to Congress.
