Vol. 1, No. 21 Weekly Publication of the Panama Canal Friday, November 9, 1962


Moving Day Soon

For 202 Families

On Pacific Side
Moving vans will soon be pulling up to
202 new homes with the furniture and
household effects of as many Canal
employees and their families.
First to roll will be initial tenants for the
100-unit Pedro Miguel housing. They'll
begin moving next week into the 2-bed-
room, 3-bedroom, and 4-bedroom quarters
which have been completed to date.
On Thursday, the first units of the 102
3-bedroom, 2-story duplexes in Corozal
and Los Rios were put up for grabs.
Arrangements were made for one sample
unit (unfurnished) to be open last night
and tonight (Friday) for inspection. Hours
are 7:15 a.m. to 8 p.m.
These quarters will be assigned on
November 13. They are described as Type
357, which is similar to Type 336 in
La Boca. They have a full bath with tub
and overhead shower upstairs, a powder-
room downstairs and a maid's bath and
shower near the kitchen.
The Pedro Miguel homes also have tubs
with overhead shower.
Both Pedro Miguel and the Los Rios and
Corozal quarters have modem sinks with
a single-handle mixing faucet for hot and
cold water.
All have glass-and-aluminum louvres
and tile floors.
A variety of decorative colors have been
used for interior and exterior painting in
both communities.
Next step will be the housewarmings as
tenants from all over the Pacific side begin
getting acquainted with new neighbors.
Some landscaping can be done now. But
with such a short growing period before
the dry-season sets in, most tenants are not
expected to take to personal digging and
planting until next spring.

NEW HOURS AT GATUN-In response
to a Gatun Civic Council request, new
hours go into effect November 18 at the
Retail Store. They will be Tuesday, Wed-
nesday, Thursday, and Friday, 8:30 to
12:30 and 2 to 5; Saturdays, 9 to 4. New
Gatun gasoline station hours will be 9 to
12:30 and 2 to 5, Monday through Satur-
day; Sundays and holidays, noon to 5.
Closed Christmas and New Year's Day.


HOLLEn THAnHS ALL


WHO PU
"On behalf of United Fund officials and
recipients I want to thank every keyman
and every person who contributed money
or effort to meeting our quota," Canal
chairman John D. Hollen said as THE
SPILLWAY went to press.
Though the Canal quota was met
10 days before the closing date, many
expected donations had not been received.
Mr. Hollen predicted the Canal quota
would be exceeded by several thousand
dollars by today.
Keyman Thomas J. Burbine, working as
co-chairman, Terminals Division, Atlantic
side, under Atlantic Area representative
Capt. Axton Jones, was singled out as
typical of those who brought good results
for the Fund by making personal contacts.
His guard unit of the Terminals Division
contributed 100 percent to either the
$25-up or $5-up Club.
Mr. Burbine thought the $25-up and
$5-up Club idea "helped quite a bit" with
solicitation. He felt himself lucky to get
good contributions and gave much credit


AN EMPLOYEE who joined the Canal
only 11 months ago, Tom Burbine, security
commander for the Terminals Division on
the Atlantic side, knew he would like it
here because he had served in the Army at
Fort Gulick from 1952 to 1956. A native
of Wakefield, Mass., he was recruited from
Concord, N.H., now lives at Coco Solo
with Mrs. Burbine and their two sons, 13
and 5 years of age.


IT UF OVER
to the men who worked with him, espe-
cially Charles Lucas, Felix Jeanmarie,
and Julian Maxwell-all non-U.S. citizen
employees.
Transportation and Terminals contrib-
uted more than 150 percent of its goal by
the time the quota was met. Civil Affairs
Bureau contributed 105 percent. Each
keyman did an equally good job, according
to keyman Leo Farlow. Personnel Bureau
marked 100 percent participation netting
113 percent of goal.
As the overall UF drive moved toward
the finish line, three events were to come,
the Albrook Teen Club Play, "Finders,
Creepers," tonight (Friday); the First
United Fund Ball, November 12, from
8 p.m. until midnight at Hangar 3, Albrook
AFB, with entertainer Paul Anka and a
visiting orchestra giving an hours entertain-
ment. Jerry Ward will play for dancing.
Ladies $2, gentlemen $3; and the Palm
Bowl Game on November 21, the night
before Thanksgiving.


CANAL WOMEN AID
MANY PROJECTS
Since the Panama Canal Women's Wel-
fare Group was founded last summer, it
has aided a number of projects in Panama
and visited several institutions where poor
or sick people are being assisted.
Projects have ranged from delivering
150 pounds of fish caught by sportsmen to
Matias HernAndez Hospital to distribution
of almost 12,000 books (both English and
Spanish) to libraries in Panama. Some 400
also were donated to Panama Viejo School.
Clothing has been collected and de-
livered to the blind group which meets
weekly under Salvation Army auspices,
and to the elderly men and women at the
Asilo Bolivar.
The Canal Women's Welfare Group also
made a personal visit to Matias Hernmndez
Hospital.
NEW CIRCULATING LIBRARIES have
been opened along the Canal bank. The
one at the Gatun Launch Landing is open
from 10 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Monday
through Fridays. The library in the Harbor-
master's Office, Balboa, is open 1 to 3 p.m.
Monday through Fridays.


Don't Forget United Fund Ball, Albrook, Monday, November 12









Nurse Gives Facts-


Terminals Men Give


26 Pints of Blood

An out-of-balance situation has been
apparent in the health picture presented by
the Canal's big Terminals Division. But a
persuasive Canal nurse and some dock-
workers who believed what she said are
on the way toward correcting it.
Though its employees-and especially
their dependents-consume a higher-than-
average amount of blood for transfusions,
the Terminals Division rate for donations
had been running far under that of Canal
units more generous in this respect.
A reason was sought. Questioning of the
dockworkers indicated an outright fear of
blood-letting to serve medical ends.
Some stevedores believed they would
themselves die if they made such a sacrifice.
One man even refused for 3 days to donate
blood for his seriously ill son.
A Panamanian nurse from the Employee
Services Branch went to both Cristobal
and Balboa to speak to groups of men.
She was accompanied by a truck that
would take volunteer donors straight to
Gorgas or Coco Solo Hospital.
By explaining a medical fact here, telling
a story there, she brought home to the
longshoremen how a well-stocked blood
bank might save their lives or those of
their wives or children. She explained how
the act of giving blood leaves no ill effects.
Of the 16 men who heard her speak in
Balboa, 11 climbed into the truck. At
Gorgas Hospital they were able to donate
10 pints of blood. Back on the job, they
told fellow employees the experience
wasn't so bad.
From an audience of 140 men in Cris-
tobal, 20 volunteered of whom 16 were
found able to donate.
As a result of the nurse's visits to the
piers, the 26 pints received from the 31
non-U.S.-citizen dockworkers boosted the
Terminals Division standing in the blood
bank.
Cristobal volunteers were Leonard
Brown, Harris T. Philips, Alejandrino Iba-
rra, Roberto P. Olonia, Gladwyn Edwards,
Jos6 Manuel, Horacio Quintero, Jos6 Gon-
zAlez, Salom6n Melgar, Segundo R. De-
mera, Inocencio Marciaga, Sotero Salazar,
Miguel Salazar, DAmaso Velez, Rathburn
Hall, Enrique Banda, Juan Cantule, Isidro
Arauz, Juan Sevillano G., and Luciano
Martinez V.
From Balboa the following stepped up:
Enrique Peodomiro, Euclides Mayorga,
Joseph E. Ramsey, William A. Watson,
Asiselo A. Zambrano, Claude T. Swaby,
Carlisle Clark, Vicente Echeverria, George
Atkinson, Carlos Diaz, and Antione Dudley.


.** RAIN DISCOURAGED visitors last
week. Only 1,427 were welcomed by Canal
Guides, including 762 at Miraflores, 72 at
Gatun, 218 who took land tours, 330
aboard Las Cruces and 45 aboard the
Reina Manuelita I.

November 26 at Balboa Heights. The
project calls for construction of a perma-
nent type dormitory, a shower-dressing
building, and a compressor building in
addition to alterations to existing frame
Building 1033, to convert it into an audi-
torium, and frame Building 1078-X to
convert it into a gymnasium.
An athletic field, roads, walks, parking
areas, and outside utilities are to be
provided. Work is to start at once, with a
completion date of September 1963. Class-
rooms will serve 400 students and the
dormitory will house 40.


Engineer Ricardo Mendez

To Study In France

Ricardo E. Mendez, an Architectural
Engineer (University of Illinois, 1948), of
the Specification and Estimates Branch,
of the Panama Canal Engineering and
Construction Bureau, Balboa Heights,
left for Paris, France, November 4,
accompanied by his wife.
Mr. M6ndez has been granted a 7-month
scholarship by the French Government to
study new techniques in prestressed
concrete.
"My trip was made possible thanks to
the direct intervention of Governor
Fleming," Mr. M6ndcz said prior to leaving
the Isthmus. The Governor arranged for
him to receive his regular pay throughout
the 7 months, partly as leave pay and partly
as active duty pay.

Enfermera Explica y Donan JA MUDARSE

Su Sangre Obreros Portuarios TOCAN!


La sangre de Leonard Brown, Harris T.
Philips, Alejandrino Ibarra, Roberto P.
Olonia, Gladwyn Edwards, Jos6 Manuel,
Horacio Quintero, Jos6 GonzAlez, Salom6n
Melgar, Segundo R. Demera, Inocencio
Marciaga, Sotero Salazar, Miguel Salazar,
DAmaso V61ez, Rathburn Hall, Enrique
Banda, Juan Cantule, Isidro ArAuz, Juan
Sevillano y Luciano Martinez V., todos de
la Division de Terminales de Crist6bal han
enriquecido el Banco de Sangre haciendo
subir las menguadas donaciones de esa
Division.
Por su parte, Enrique Peodomiro, Eucli-
des Mayorga, Joseph E. Ramsey, William
A. Watson, Asiselo A. Zambrano, Claude
T. Swaby, Carlisle Clark, Vicente Echeve-
rria, George Atkinson, Carlos Diaz y An-
tione Dudley, de la misma Divisi6n,
Balboa, respondieron al llamado, donando
10 pintas de su sangre en el Hospital
Gorgas, regresando a su trabajo tranquilos
y sonrientes, con la satisfacci6n de haber
cumplido su humanitarian misi6n.
La acci6n de los trabajadores portuarios
citados obedeci6 a requerimiento hecho
por una enfermera panamefia del Servicio
de Empleados, quien visit los muelles de
Crist6bal y de Balboa para exponer clara-
mente la necesidad de las donaciones y el
hecho de que ellas no causan ningin mal
efecto, ni decaimiento fisico alguno.
Las contribuciones de la Divisi6n de
Terminales al Banco de Sangre estaban
muy a la zaga de las de otras dependencias,
pues prevalecia, aparentemente, un criterio
confuso y hasta alarmista que tendia a limi-
tarlas, hasta el extreme que un padre ate-
rrado se resisti6 por 3 largos dias, a donar
sangre para su propio hijo.

MARCIA C. COLLINS, estudiante del
sexto grado de la Escuela de Diablo
Heights, hija de J. Winter D. Collins, de
la Oficina Central de Empleo y su sefiora
Margaret W. Collins, de la Divisi6n de
Escuelas, gan6 el primer premio en el
concurso sobre Crist6bal Col6n auspiciado
por el Club Interamericano de Mujeres.
El premio de $10 y un libro preciosa-
mente ilustrado, donado por la esposa del
Embajador Joseph S. Farland, le fueron
entregados en ceremonia durante la
reunion regular del IAWC celebrada el
jueves 25 de octubre.
UNA AGRADABLE SORPRESA se re-
gistr6 durante el program en celebraci6n
del 599 aniversario de la independencia de
PanamA preparado por el Club de Conver-
saci6n y Cultura de Balboa cuando un con-
junto del Colegio La Salle hizo irrupci6n
en el acto, asi como ocho j6venes disfra-
zados de la Escuela RepDblica de China.


EN EL VALLE DEL HINDUS, al
occidente de PaquistAn, se construirAn ocho
canales que cubririn un total de mis de
400 millas. El movimiento de tierra mon-
tari a 350 millones de yards cibicas.
Esa cifra so compare con los 271 y pico
millones de yards c6bicas de tierra y roca
excavados para construir el Canal de
PanamA y los 345 millones adicionales
extraidos desde 1914.


Muy pronto ya los camiones de mudanza,
cargados de muebles y enseres, invadirAn
la nueva barriada de Pedro Miguel, donde
200 nuevos hogares de empleados del
Canal aguardan a las families que irAn a
ocuparlos.
Primero vendrAn, la semana entrante, los
inquilinos de las 100 unidades familiares
que se alojaran en hogares de 2, 3 y hasta
4 recamaras. Ya el jueves los primeros
duplex de 2 y 3 recamaras de Corozal y
Los Rios estaran disponibles. (Se han hecho
arreglos para que una de las unidades, sin
amueblar, quede abierta para la inspec-
ci6n, desde anoche y hoy viemes en la
noche entire 7:15 y 8 p.m. Estas unidades
serAn asignadas el 13 de los corrientes.
Pertenecen al tipo 357, similar al tipo 336
de La Boca.)
AdemAs de las recamaras cuentan esas
duplex con un bafio de tina y regadera en
el piso superior, un servicio abajo y baiio
para la criada en la plant baja, contiguo
a la cocina. Las unidades de Pedro Miguel
tambien cuentan con bafio de tina y rega-
dera-y al igual que las de Corozal y
Los Rios-lavaderos de acero inoxidable
con un grifo para agua fria o caliente.
Las ventanas son de las llamadas Holly-
wood, de vidrio y aluminio, y los pisos
de mosaicos. La pintura empleada es
decorative y duradera.
Ahora solo falta que los felices inquili-
nos siembren sus gramas y jardines y bauti-
cen con alegres reuniones sus nuevos
hogares.
