Council was held at the Train-
ing Center. After much discus-
sion and debate by the mem-
bers present, a motion was

Voting on this question will
be held Tuesday, October 1.

Had A Cold For 6 Months.?

'Taint So; Better See Your Doc'

Mrs. Eleanor D. Burnham
Canal Zone Library
With Murder in Mind by Jan
Roffman is a who-dun-it about
a man who had committed a
murder and who apparently
was going to enjoy the profits
of his crime. His gradual undo-
ing makes a tale which is full
of suspense and excitement.
This is a Crime Club Selection.
The scene is laid in England.
Rich Uncle by Carlton Keith
is a murder mystery with Jeff
Green as the investigator. His
early identification of the mur-
der victim leads him into a
complicated trail of deception
and crime e. He manages to
come through with gusto at the
Cat's Cradle by Kurt Von-
negut is a highly original sci-
ence-fiction extravaganza dis-
tinguished in that its style is
odd and that it's a satire. The
adventures of a writer in search
of material about an A-bomb
scientist plunges this would-be
biographer into the Caribbean
area and into a wildly specta-
cular climax. It's far-fetched
but funny.
The Little General by Mar-
garet MacKay is the story of
Genera 1l Quince of Quince's
World War II British Raiders
after his retirement, and of his
daughter Laura who acts as
chief-of-staff for his household.
The General re-lives his past by
writing his memoirs and bat-
tling with other memoir-writing
heroes, while Laura tries to
work out an independent life for
herself. This is a readable book
and will be popular.
The Speculators by Joh n
Gerstine is a novel of Wall
Street. George Morgenstern had
plodded along for twenty years
as a brokerage firm representa-
tive when at last the big break
comes. His part in a Florida
real estate deal soon makes him
an important person and a big
name in Wall Street circles.
This story is interesting and
will hold the attention of any-
one who reads it.
Interesting books in a more
serious vein.
C hi n a Only Yesterday by
Emily ,Hahn is a history of
China from the Opium Wars to
the establishment of Mao's Red
Republie. This book is one of

the Mainstream of the Modern
World Series. Miss Hahn is the
author of China to Me, which
was a best seller during World
War II. She lived in the East
for many years before her mar-
riage to an Englishman with
whom she now has settled in
Motivation and Productivity
by Saul W. Gellerman is an
important book for anyone who
directs the work of others. It
presents in non-technical lan-
guage the highlights in motiva-
tion research and development
since the 30's. The first part of
the book covers work environ-
ment; the second considers
motivation frorr the individual
point of view- and the third
part shows how information
thus acquired can be of assis-
tance to managers. Dr. Geller-
man is Manager of Personnel
Research, IBM World Trade
Corporation, and is a member of
the American Psychological As-
Missiles and the revolution in
warfare by Nels August Parson,
Jr., represents an extensive re-
vision and up-dating of his
earlier book, Guided Missiles in,
Peace and War. Colonel Parson'
begins this volume with an
overview of the revolution in
warfare caused by missiles and
nuclear weapons. He includes
an account of the historical
background of missiles, from
those of the ancient Chinese to
the present, and adds a clas-
sification of them as to their
use. There is a lucid presenta-
tion of how missiles are pro-
pelled and guided.
My Life; the memoirs of
Claude Bowers is a fascinating
account of the author's personal
relations with friends in high
places including Senator La
Follette, Al Smith, Col. Edward
M. House and Mrs. Eleanor
Roosevelt. Mr. Bowers was a
notable historian, newspaper-
man, scholar, d i p 1 o m a t and
political jack of all trades.
Among his books are the (by
now) classic Jefferson and Ha-
milton and The Tragic Era. His
daughter Patricia Bo wer
added a postscript to his last
book (this autobiography) com-
posed of extracts from her
father's diary. Mr. Bowers died
before he completed the last

cannot be ruled out until you
"Doctor. I've had this cold for
six month!"
This statement often is heard in
the clinics. But what do people
really mean when they say they've
had a "cold" for six months?
Probably they mean they have a
secondary infection that followed
the cold, because the minute a
cold virus attacks, the body starts
to fight the infection and an im-
munity is developed that lasts

about six months.
If you still feel like you have
a cold six months after it began,
you owe yourself a complete
check up. Certain diseases are
triggered by the common 'cold
and if you are unfortunate enough
to have this happen to you, you
must get the basic -disease cured.
While there are comparatively
few people who develop ,a serious
illness from a cold, the possibility
make sure.

the team that has scored the

most points during its three
quarters. If a tie exists, the
winner will be the team that
has given up the fewest
number of points. In last

September 27, 1963

DAVID E. YERKES, who will take over his
new duties as Chief of the Architectural Branch
of the Panama Canal next week, probably is the
only man in the Canal organization who has
made an inspection of every Panama Canal
quarters building in the Canal Zone.
This unique task, which makes Mr. Yerkes
an undisputed authority on Panama Canal hous-
ing, was completed between 1952 and 1955 when
he was a member pf the former Plant Inventory
and Appraisal Staff headed by John D. Hollen,
now Chief of the Executive Planning Staff. The
inspection of all existing quarters was part of
the evaluation of housing needs and resulted in
the construction of hundreds of new houses on
both sides of the Isthmus.
Later, as Assistant Chief of the Architectural
Branch, Mr. Yerkes had a hand in the design
of most of the new houses. Outside of his re-
gular architectural duties with the Canal orga-
nization, he also has designed or helped to design
a number of other buildings in the Canal Zone.
Mr. Yerkes was born in Hil. City, Kansas,
and attended Washburn University in Topeka
and Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan-
sas. He worked for a while in Albany, New York,
where he met his wife, Peggy, and came to the
Canal Zone in 1940 as a member of the Architec-
tural Staff. With the exception of the three years
on the Plant Inventory and Aprraisal Staff, he
has been with that unit ever since. He has been
Assistant Chief since 1956.
Mr. and Mrs. Yerkes live in Diablo Heights
in one of the quarters he designed. They have
two sons, John W., who is a graduate of Stanford

tistical clerk in the office of the
Panama Canal Marine Director, is
getting expert at shaking the
Governor's hand while she gar-
ners checks and citations for em-
ployee suggestion awards.
During the four years she has
worked with the Canal organiza-
tion, Mrs. Brown has made so
many suggestions that she has
lost count. But she thinks that,
so far, she has received seven
cash awards.
None of them have been big
policy-changing ideas, she says
modestly. Just little things she
has noticed needed doing to help
oil the operating machinery of a
big organization like the Panama
Canal. In one instance it was the
construction of a shelter over the
door of the loading platform of
the Administration Building to
protect employees and merchan-
dise during heavy rainstorms.
Another was the provision of a
slot in the door to the office of
the cable clerk so that messages
could be left after working hours.
Mrs. Brown is the wife of Wil-
liam Brown, a former Canal em-
ployee and presently a cartogra-

University and who now holds the impressive
title of Research Engineer, Space Environment
,Simulation Laboratory of the Aero-Space Divi-
sion of the Boeing Company in Seattle, Washing-
ton; and David, who will graduate next year
from Kansas State University.

pher with the Inter-American
Geodetic Surveys. She came to
the Canal Zone as a bride ten
years ago from Charleston, West
Virginia, and got a job shortly
after as a legal officer in the U. S.
Navy's 15th Naval District.
She joined the Canal organiza-
tion four years ago and was with

. J. D. TATE, Chief Foreman Electrical and
Navigational Aids, scans the board in his Aids
to Navigation office in Gamboa where, at a
glance, he can ascertain the status of the 2,100
navigational aids used in the Canal operation.

Buoys, for instance, are on a general periodic
overhaul schedule every 18 months if in salt
water and every 5 years if in fresh water. The
board shows exactly when such overhaul last
took place.

There are 82 acetylene gas-operated buoys;
10 gas-operated outlying stations; 2 electric-
operated outlying station; 93 battery-operated
aids; 1,511 electric-operated aids fed from shore
current; 402 unlighted markers of which 226 mark
small boat channels in Gatun Lake. The colors,
shapes, lights and other characteristics all have
a meaning for mariners.

Two light stations, at Toro Point and Isla
Grande, bear brass plates "1893 France." They
were built by a private syndicate that had a
franchise from the Colombian -Government to
operate lighthouses in the area that was then
under the Province of Colombia. Both light-
houses and the original equipment are still being
used. These lighthouses were converted to elec-
tricity about 1919. One other lighthouse, at Cape
Mala, is operated by electricity. All the others
are gas-powered.

Mr. Tate recalls that these lights were out
during World War II, but the Canal itself didn't
turn of. the lights. Instead, all white lights were
converted to blue, and copper screen about the
red helped subdue those lights.
Mr. Tate was born in South Carolina. He has
30 years' unbroken service with the Panama Ca-
nal and 2V2 years of U. S. Navy service. He has
worked with the Electrical and Lighthouse Divi-
sions and in the merger of the latter with the
Dredging Division came to Gamboa.
Many a person has turned for a second look
when Mr. Tate goes driving past in his 1931

the Electrical Division and the
Contract and Inspection Division
before joining the Marine Direc-
tor's Staff. During her first year
with the Marine Director, she
was presented with an outstand-
ing performance award for ex-
cellence in the performance of
her duties.

Model A Ford. His hobby is duck hunting and
he is a member of a hunting club in Pacora,
Republic of Panama, and finds a car such as
this one is necessary to get to the duck marshes.
Apparently he is not alone in liking the Model
A Ford, for this year he was able to purchase
five new nylon tires for the car.
Mr. and Mrs. Tate have resided on both
sides of the Isthmus, but now make their home
in Gamboa. Mrs. Tate is with the Motion Picture
Service at Quarry Heights. Their daughter,
Louise, is married and resides in Monterrey,
Mexico. Their son, David, is finishing his Mas-
ter's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Geor-
gia TedhI

Cuidese de Descu idos!

Un acto inseguro puede ser consecuencia de un defect fisico o
mental, de la falta de aptitud de una persona hacia su trabajo, de
un entrenamiento deficiente, de falta de discipline, de un lugar de
trabajo deseado y, en ciertos casos, de una mala supervision.
Los actos inseguros provienen:
1) De no emplear los dispositivos y el equipo de seguridad.
2) De hacer las cosas sin autorizaci6n.
3) De ignorar las reglas de seguridad y los mdtodos de trabajo.
4) De descuidar la limpieza en los lugares de trabajo.
5) De operar una miquina sin asear.
6) De obstruir los pasillos con piezas sueltas.
Pueden ser consecuencia de una mala supervision, tales como no
tener colocadas las guards correspondientes en las miquinas, o del
mal estado de la maquinaria. Para eliminar las condiciones inseguras
debemos informar al jefe inmediato, de cualquier cosa. que se yea en
mal estado, pero... si es algo que puede usted corregir de inme.
