Quarantine Time

For Dogs, Cats

Will Be Reduced
The period during which cats and
dogs entering the Canal Zone shall
be held in quarantine under offi-
cial veterinary observation will be
reduced from 120 days to 30 days,
effective May 30.
The new regulation was published
in the April 30 issue of the United
States Federal Register.
The regulation states that every
dog or cat brought into the Canal
Zone from off the Isthmus shall be
immunized upon arrival with an
approved anti-rabies vaccine by a
veterinarian of the Health Bureau.
Such immunization shall be per-
formed regardless of previous vacci-
Snation against rabies and shall
precede the discharge of the animal
from quarantine by not less than
30 days.
In the event that circumstances do
not warrant the immunization of a
dog or cat that is less than 4 months
of age at the time of its arrival in
the Canal Zone, the requirement
may be waived at the discretion of
the Health Bureau veterinarian.
The reduction in the time that
dogs and cats brought into the Canal
Zone from off the Isthmus must be
held in quarantine follows by a few
months the discovery of rabies in a
domestic cat in Balboa which had

LST in a Hurry
What's the record time for a
trip through the Canal from one
side to the other and back?
On March 6 the Walworth
County (LST) left Rodman Naval
Station at 6:10 p.m., arriving at
Cristobal early the following
morning. Six hours later, at 10:30
a.m., she left Cristobal and re-
turned to Rodman, docking early
that evening- for a record-
breaking round-trip time of 25
hours and 20 minutes.
Earlier, the U.S.S. Lowry had
held the mark of 32 hours. The
Lowry's trip was from the Atlantic
to the Pacific and back again.

Pilot Collector-Author Provides

Unique Library Maritime Display

Capt. John F. Campbell, a Panama
Canal pilot on the Atlantic side and
a well-known collector of nautical
books, has provided the Canal Zone
Library-Museum with a unique dis-

his entire collection, includes rare
steel, engravings of ships and nautical
scenes; charts, tables, and maps;
17th, 18th, and 19th century records

tude of various celestial bodies),
antique quadrants, and a nocturnal
(used to find the time of night by
the pole star); manuals, and early
editions of the works of Nathaniel
Bowditch and Edmund March
Blunt, famous seafarers and nautical
Featured in the display is a special
edition of Captain Campbell's own
book, History and Bibliography of
The New American Practical Navi-
gator and The American Coast Pilot,
which describes the lives and famous
works of Bowditch and Blunt.
Captain Campbell's book was pub-

lished recently by the Peabody Mu-

George Lord, Federal Payroll

Alan Wells, vs. Population?

.L "P % 1, 4"1 ^.3

Top guns of the day at the recent
Canal Zone Junior Sectional Rifle
Match were George Lord of La Boca
and Alan Wells of Balboa.
These two shot the same high
score, with Lord beating Wells
through the application of National
Rifle Association tie-breaking rules.
The match, highlight of Isthmian
junior shooting activities, was fired
at the Balboa Gun Club range. It
is sponsored annually by Lodge
No. 1414, B.P.O. Elks, of Balboa,
and conducted by officers and mem-
bers of the Balboa Gun Club as a
community service.
A total of 42 junior shooters com-
peted for the Isthmian Junior Rifle
Championship this year. Both indi-
vidual and team matches were fired.
Scores were forwarded to the Na-
tional Rifle Association to be used in
rating the junior shooters here against
those from all the States of the
Union where junior sectional cham-
pionships also are conducted, to
determine the national junior cham-
pionship of the United States.


A former Canal employee, William
H. Bussey, has been appointed an
associate of Harza Engineering Co.,
Chicago, a consulting engineering
firm specializing in river control,
hydroelectric, and related projects.
Bussey was employed by the Canal
from 1941 to 1948 as soils technician
for the Special Engineering Division.

Federal employment over the years
has had its ups and downs-in rela-
tion to the Nation's population.
When George Washington became
President, back in 1789, the 350
civilian employees on the Federal
payroll amounted to one for every
11,430 Americans. From then through
World War II the ratio decreased.
By the time the civil service system
was established in 1883, there was
one Government worker for every
400 Americans; in 1923; one for
every 215; and at the all-time peak
in Federal employment in World
War II, one for every 36.
The trend since then, however,
has been reversed, except for a brief
rise in the Korean War. The increase
in Federal employment today lags
behind population growth. Now
there is one Federal worker for every
76 Americans.

A A. Albright, Electrical Supervisor,
Gatun Locks, who has been working
on his college degree for 24 years
received a B.A. degree from Florida
State University last month. Albright,
who will retire next year, plans to
get a master's degree and begin a
career in teaching.
Born in New Haven, Conn.,r
Albright came to the Isthmus in 1934
to work as a foreman electrician on

The Bells of Bicetre is probably
S the most unusual book ever written
by George Simenon, who heretofore
has been celebrated for his psycho-
logical novels, suspense, and mystery
stories. This book is entirely con-
templative in mood. It is based on
the reflections of a famous Paris
newspaper publisher as he recovers
in a hospital from the shattering
effects of a paralyzing stroke.
Simenon's style is as smooth as ever,
but his plot and his technique are
probably more mature than in any
of his novels, some of which have
been translated into as many as 18
The Fair is Robert Nathan's latest,
gracefully told story with its setting
in Arthurian England. The Saxons
have defeated King Arthur and are
burning, killing, and pillaging in an
ever widening range across southern
England. As a beautiful young
princess and her cousin are going
west to seek refuge, they become
enchanted with stories of a fair,
where wondrous beasts-a unicorn,
a wyvern, and other fantastic crea-
tures-may be seen. Robert Nathan
has written a charming story, full of
Fantasy and innocence. Its subtle
overtones will interest the older
reader and also will provide wonder
enough for the young.
Every person who has ever been
to a baseball game will be fascinated
by Stan Musial subtitled "The Man's"
own story as told by Bob Broeg. In
this book Musial, who is probably
the most universally loved and
respected baseball star of our era,

tells about his long career-of the
tough early days in the minor leagues
and of his spectacular rise to fame
in the majors. Bob Broeg has been
sports editor for the St. Louis Post-
Dispatch for many years and has
always been among Musial's greatest
In The Memoirs of Zeus, Maurice
Druon serves as intermediary for the

reminiscences. This story is remark-
ably modern despite the 2,000 years
which have passed since its hero's
heyday. His comments on life,
science and morals in the 20th Cen-
tury are apropos and witty. Maurice
Druon has written many historical
novels and tales, including The Iron
King and The Lily and the Lion.
Frame-Up by Andrew Garve, is, in
the words of Rex Stout, "a Simon-
pure detective story." Since Stout is
an expert in the who-dun-it field, his
word is good enough for most of us.
Frame-Up is about a small, elderly,
and elegant artist whose death is the
beginning of a puzzling and exciting
story. Readers will surely wish to
pursue this mystery to the end.

The Smithsonian Institution, 118
years old this year, doesn't rest on
past laurels alone to draw almost 15
million visitors a year. In addition to
history and art, the museum has kept
up with the times in specialized fields.
Currently, the Smithsonian is carry-
ing out tropical disease studies on
Barro Colorado Island in Gatun Lake
here in the Canal Zone.

Ship Repaii

Foreign vessels which have visited
he Industrial Division ship repair
facility at Mount Hope recently have
included the Norwegian freighter
M.V. Breimn, the Swedish tanker M.S.
Sylvania, and the two Vietnamese
MSF's (Mine Sweeper Fleet) Nhut-
Tao and Chin-Linh.
The Breim was having a damaged
propeller replaced.
The Sylvania was having the
damaged bow section temporarily
reinforced and sealed off from its
mid-section to enable her to proceed
to a European shipyard for per-
manent repairs. The Sylvania ran
aground against the Cristobal break-
water early in the morning of
March 21.
The MSF's were undergoing mis-
cellaneous voyage repairs preparatory
to transiting the Canal.

Oops! Our Fluff
The $149 listed in THE SPILLWAY
of May 1 as the lowest monthly wage
for Canal Zone workers was not
correct. The lowest pay for workers
on a wage base related to the local
economy is $121.33.
There are only 19 persons, all new
workers, employed at this lowest
wage. This is out of a total of more
than 9,500 workers who are paid on
the formula related to the Panama-
nian economy. The minimum for
these new workers will be increased
to $138 a month on July 1.
Of the 274 workers in the lowest
grade, 202 earn $131 a month now
and the July increase will raise that
figure to $149 a month. It was this
$149 that was unintentionally listed
as the lowest wage.

Book on Metals,

Welding Them

In Second Edition
Metals and How to Weld Them
is the second edition of a highly
respected book by T. B. Jefferson,
publisher of Welding Engineer
Publications and editor of the Weld-
ing Encyclopedia. Gorham Woods,
a distinguished metallurgist, col-
laborated with Jefferson in the
preparation of this material. The
purpose of this book is to equip the
average reader with a practical
knowledge of the structure and
properties of metals and how to
adapt these metals to welding. The
book should be useful to a variety
of people including students, welders,
and engineers. The technical explana-
tions and descriptions are written in
clear, concise language and are
supplemented by illustrations,
diagrams, and tables.

Group Health Plan

Coverage Broader

Completion of negotiations for
expanded coverage under the Non-
U.S. citizen Group Health Plan has
been announced by the Group
Insurance Board.
Under the new terms, dependent
children are covered to age 21. This
provision is now effective and retro-
active to March 17. Also, the defini-
tion of a dependent child has been
broadened to include foster children.
No dependent child, foster or
other, need be registered. Existence
of the relationship may have to be
proved, however, at the time of a
In the case of a foster child, the
foster parent should be prepared to
prove a normal parent-child relation-
ship with a valid expectation that the
child will be reared by the foster
parent to adulthood.
These provisions for expanded
coverage were in negotiation with the
underwriter, Mutual of Omaha, when
additional benefits were announced
early in April for persons covered
under the U.S. citizen Health
Benefits Plan.

into the act. Rudy Burda, Sr., studies
German while his sons, Rudy, Jr.,
are on full-time assignments. Mrs.
Audrey Kline, enrolled in the invest-

night with her son, Kenneth, and her
daughter, Leslie, a part-time student
taking English composition and
world civilization. Whenever Beverly
and Robert Bowman finish their full-
time assignments, they can watch
mom, Mrs. Audrew Bowman, at her
shorthand homework.
Indirectly the Robert Schultz
family has four members enrolled in
CZC. Robert Schultz, Sr., takes
English composition in a part-time
capacity. His son, Robert, Jr., is a
full-time student. A married daugh-
ter,, Mrs. Charlotte George, is a
member of the office machines class.
So that they can get together nights
and play four-handed homework,
Mrs. George's husband, Daniel,
leaves the cards at home and brings

Captain Campbell's book, which
he spent about 3 years producing, is
being reviewed throughout the world
by leading nautical journals. In addi-

The 30 days provided in the new
regulations will give a short observa-
tion period and time for antibody
response to the vaccine injected upon
the animal's arrival.
It is understood that Panama also
will reduce the quarantine period
of cats and dogs entering the
Republic from off the Isthmus to
30 days effective May 30.
Rabies, a disease virtually unknown
in Panama for more than 50 years,
became a problem for public health
authorities both in Panama and the
Canal Zone in 1959, when it was
found that the local bat population
had become infected.
A survey to determine the extent
to which rabies had infected local
bats and the development of meas-
ures through which the disease can
be controlled was started by the
Canal Zone Health Bureau.
Rabies was first discovered in
Panama in 1907 among dogs. There
were several human cases the follow-
ing year and evidence that cattle
also died from the disease. After a
rigid program of control, rabies had
apparently disappeared from the
Isthmus by 1910, and except for the
death of an Air Corps officer exposed
in Nicaragua, who died at Gorgas
Hospital in 1943, no cases of animal
or human rabies were reported until
A rigid program of vaccination
against rabies and licensing of dogs
has been in effect in the Canal Zone
for the past 10 years.

Realizing that makeup does not always produce beauty, the Canal Zone
College boys who participated in last week's water show tried, nevertheless,
to match the girls. Here they go through a dance prior to a race. Photos of
the girls in the show also were taken, but they made such a big splash
(literally and actually) that the pictures didn't turn out well. Fine crowds
witness the show in Balboa and Coco Solo. The Aquadettes were under the
direction of Miss Patricia Lehman of the college.

Hit Show "Oklahoma!"

To Be Presented Here

Oklahoma!, the spectacular Rod-
gers and Hammerstein hit, will be
presented on the Isthmus in August
for the benefit of the Canal Zone
United Fund.
Bruce Quinn has been named di-
rector of this project by United Fund
Campaign Chairman Fred Denton.
Quinn is well know locally as the
prime mover behind last year's
successful Theatre Guild presenta-
tion of another Rodgers and Ham-
merstein all time hit, South Pacific.
Quinn has designed numerous stage
settings for local theater productions
including The Pirate, Romeo and
Juliet, Mrs. McThing, The Tender
Trap, and, of course, South Pacific.
He recently completed the set design
for the next Theatre Guild produc-
tion, A School for Scandal. Quinn is

This is the show that first brought
together the team of Richard Rod-
gers and Oscar Hammerstein II, who
subsequently wrote such other great
hits as Carousel, The King and I, The
Sound of Music, and South Pacific.
Oklahoma! is a romantic tale of the
prairies in the early years of this cen-
tury, when cowboys were first
beginning to be supplanted by
farmers. Oklahoma! tells the sunny
tale of the courtship of two pretty
farm girls by their cowboy swains,
despite the rivalry of two other men,
an itinerant peddler and a sour-
tempered hired hand.
Tryouts for Oklahoma! are sched-
uled for June. Specific dates will be
announced soon.

"MamA, corrije mi tarea y yo
corrijo la tuya." Esa frase pareciera
absurda, pero no lo sera tanto. Al
menos en lo que concierne a padres
e hijos que cursen studios en la
Universidad de la Zona del Canal,
de los cuales hay ya 14 casos matri-
culados para el segundo semestre.
Que tipo de curso siguen los
padres? De los 20 cursos que se
ofrecen, los favorites parecen ser:
Composici6n Inglesa, Estenografia,
Espafiol, Civilizaci6n Universal e
Algunos toman cursos en el ma-
nejo de hotels y restoranes; otros en
escribir y vender cr6nicas, otros en
disefios para interiors.
Quiere usted saber qui6nes son
los padres que comparten con sus
hijos los afanes acad6micos y las
areas correspondientes? Pues . .
La Sra. Ana Eder aprende francs
y concurre a la Universidad de la
Zona del Canal con su hija, Anita.
La Sra. Bertha Wellington estudia
inversions y su hijo Don tambi6n

ocurre con la Sra. Larue Keys quien
estudia Mecanografia, Civilizaci6n
Universal y Castellano. Su hijo Chris
acude igualmente al colegio CZC.
A veces toda la familiar se ha dado
al studio como: Rudy Burda (ale-

Soldadura y Corte

Con Oxi-Acetileno

El especialista en el arte de cortar
y soldar, tiene la responsabilidad de
protegerse, proteger a su ayudante y
tambi6n a sus compafieros de trabajo
a6n cuando 6stos 61timos ejecuten
trabajos distintos. La experiencia nos
ha demostrado que aquellas personas
que se encuentran en las inmediacio-
nes donde se ejecuten trabajos de
soldadura el6ctrica estan mas expues-
tos a sufrir accidents que los mismos
Ademis de 6sto, debemos tener
muy present el riesgo de incendio
debido a que el resultado de soldar
y cortar de una manera descuidada
ha costado muchisimo dinero en per-
didas, y lo mas lamentable, vidas
Por supuesto que los soldadores
* han tenido su bautismo de fuego.
Esto se debe a que puede ocurrirsele
a un inexperto la idea err6nea de
que un poco de oxigeno es bueno
para la salud y por esa raz6n abren
la vilvula del cilindro y asi permiten
el escape del oxigeno por unos minu-
tos antes de empezar a trabajar.
Pero puede suceder que al prender

el soplete, una chispa caiga sobre un
material combustible y el soldador
perezca tragicamente abrazado por
las llamas alimentadas por la atm6s-
fera cargada del oxigeno escapado
del cilindro.
De manera pues que esta muy
claro que no podemos sustituir oxi-
geno por el aire natural para pro-
ducir ventilaci6n artificial. Si es de
much necesidad, la ventilaci6n arti-
ficial se puede producer mediante el
sistema de succi6n de aire hacia el
interior de tanques o buques, etc.
Por medio de pruebas muy senci-
Ilas se podra determinar la presen-
cia del gas carb6n mon6xido o si
existe una deficiencia de oxigeno.
Pero la emanaci6n de ciertos vapores
y gases son tambien muy dificiles de
No hay absolutamente ni raz6n ni
16gica para que se corra el riesgo de
cortar o soldar en Areas cerradas que
no tengan la ventilaci6n apropiada.
Recuerden que el oxigeno por si solo
no arde pero si contribute a mante-
ner la combustion.

Lupfer, una bien conocida ex resi-
dente de la Zona del Canal, cuyas
obras fueron puestas en exhibici6n
recientemente por el Museo Con-
memorativo Charles W. Bowers, en
Santa Ana, California.
De acuerdo con el folleto distri-
buido por el museo para anunciar la
exposici6n, la colecci6n de cuadros
de paisajes de PanamA se estaba ex-
hibiendo actualmente con la espe-
ranza, en una pequeiia media, de
que ayudaria a las relaciones entire

Lupfer, ex Subsecretario Ejecutivo
del Canal de Panama, vino al Istmo
poco despu6s de la terminaci6n del
Canal para ayudar a organizer la
Biblioteca del Canal de Panama.
Ella conoci6 a su future esposo en
la Zona del Canal y despu6s de su

La Sra. Lupfer pint6 no solamente
en PanamA sino en Colombia, Costa
Rica, Guatemala y M6xico, y su tra-
bajo ha sido exhibido en Nueva York
y otros importantes centros artisticos.
Los Lupfers salieron del Istmo en
1948, cuando 61 se jubil6, y desde
entonces han residido cerca de Los
Angeles, California.



La famosa obra musical Oklahoma,
de Rodgers y Hammerstein, sera pre-
sentada en el Istmo durante el mes de
agosto a beneficio del Fondo Unido
de la Zona del Canal.
Bruce Quinn ha sido nombrado
director del proyecto por el presi-
dente de la campafia del Fondo
Unido, Fred Denton. Quinn es bien
conocido localmente como el princi-
pal gestor de la presentaci6n hecha
el afio pasado por el Theatre Guild
de otro 6xito de todos los tiempos
de Rodgers y Hammerstein, South
Pacific. Quinn ha disefiado numero-
sos escenarios para producciones tea-
trales locales, tales como El Pirata,
Romeo y Julieta, Mrs. McThing, The
Tender Trap, y, por supuesto, South
Pacific. El termin6 recientemente el
disefio del scenario para la pr6xima
producci6n del Theatre Guild,
A School for Scandal. Quinn estA
empleado como Especialista en T6c-
nicas de Personal y Relaciones Em-
pleado-Patronal con la Direcci6n de
Personal del Canal de Panama.
Oklahoma es uno de los espec-
ticulos musicales mis populares en la
historic teatral. Se present durante
5 afos consecutivos en Broadway, lo
mas prolongado para una comedia
musical en ese tiempo, y no supe-
rado durante 13 afios, hasta que
My Fair Lady super la marca de
Oklahoma en 1961.
Este es el especticulo que fue
montado primero por Richard Rod-
gers y Oscar Hammerstein II, quienes
escribieron despuks otros grandes
exitos musicales como Carrousel, El
Rey y Yo, The Sound of Music, y
South Pacific.
Oklahoma es una historic roman-
tica de las praderas en los primeros
afios de este siglo, cuando los vaque-
ros comenzaron a ser suplantados
por los agricultores. Oklahoma cuen-
ta la alegre historic de dos bonitas
muchachas del campo a quienes
hacen la corte sus enamorados vaque-
ros, a pesar de la competencia de
otros dos hombres, un vendedor
ambulante y un obrero de mal genio.
Los ensayos para Oklahoma estan
sefialados para el mes de junior. Las

El sensacional lanzador zurdo Jim Riley, el mis destacado pelotero de la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa en muchos afios, ha firmado contrato para jugar
con la organizaci6n de los Cardenales de San Luis.
Riley, quien se graduarA este afio, recibi6 una bonificaci6n de $8,500 y
recibira un contrato por $500 mensuales. Ademis se le ofreci6 una bonificaci6n
incentive de $7,500. El serpentinero zurdo ha estado oficialmente en planilla
desde que firm en el mes de abril despu6s de su fantistica actuaci6n en la
series entire las Estrellas Militares y las Estrellas de la Zona del Canal, cuando
ponch6 a 22 bateadores en el juego inicial de la series.
La bonificaci6n de incentive sera en la siguiente forma: si Riley llega a la
double "A," recibiri una bonificaci6n de $1,000; si llega a la triple "A," recibira
$1,500 mis; y si logra ascender a las ligas mayores, recibira $5,000 adicionales.
La 6nica estipulaci6n es que debera permanecer en cada una de estas categories
por lo menos durante 60 dias.

Riley deberA reportarse el 8 de junio a Rockhill, Carolina del Sur, donde
jugarA para el Rockhill en la Liga de Carolina del Oeste, clase "A." El piensa
asistir a la universidad fuera de la temporada de beisbol.

Chase Riddle, un scout del San Luis, firm a Jim despu6s de su actuaci6n
en la series de Estrellas. Debido a las buenas instrucciones del coach Herb
Raybourn, de la Escuela de Balboa, Riley estaba en excelentes formas y con
gran control. Riddle vio a Riley lanzar en la series y le hizo una oferta tenta-
tiva. Despu6s de informar a los Cardenales en los Estados Unidos, Riddle
telefone6 una oferta a los padres de Riley, la cual aceptaron verbalmente.
El contrato fue enviado entonces a la Zona y firmado por Jim.

Riley es el segundo pelotero de la Zona del Canal firmado por los Carde-
nales de San Luis; el otro fue Tom Hughes, tambi6n lanzador.

rinario official, sera reducido de 120
a 30 dias, a partir del 30 de mayo.
La nueva reglamentaci6n fue pu-
blicada en la edici6n del 30 de abril
del Registro Federal de los Estados
La reglamentaci6n establece que
cada perro o gato traido a la Zona
del Canal procedente fuera del Istmo,
debe ser inmunizado a su ilegada con
una vacuna aprobada contra la hidro-
fobia y aplicada por un veterinario
de la Direcci6n de Salubridad. Tal
inmunizaci6n debe ilevarse a cabo
no importa que haya sido vacunado
antes contra la rabia y precederA a
la salida del animal de la cuarentena
en un period no menor de 30 dias.
En el caso de que las circunstan-
cias no garanticen la inmunizaci6n
de un perro o gato menor de 4 meses
de edad al moment de su llegada a
la Zona del Canal, el requisite puede
ser pasado por alto a discreci6n del
veterinario de la Direcci6n de Salu-
La reducci6n en el tiempo que
perros y gatos traidos a la Zona del
Canal procedentes fuera del Istmo,
deben permanecer en cuarentena ha
seguido pocos meses despues del des-
cubrimiento de rabia en un gato
domestico en Balboa el cual no habia
recibido vacunaci6n de ninguna
especie contra la hidrofobia.
Los 30 dias contemplados en la
nueva reglamentaci6n proporcionarA
un breve period y tiempo para
observer la reacci6n a la vacuna
inyectada a la llegada del animal.
Se tiene entendido que Panama
tambien reducira su period de cua-

rentena para gatos y perros que
entren a la Rep6blica de PanamA
procedentes fuera del Istmo a 30
dias a partir del 30 de mayo.
La hidrofobia, una enfermedad
virtualmente desconocida en Panama
durante mas de 50 afios, se convirti6
en un problema para las autoridades
de salubridad piiblica tanto en
Panama como en la Zona del Canal
en 1959, cuando se encontr6 que los
murci6lagos locales se habian conta-
La Direcci6n de Salubridad de la
Zona del Canal inici6 studios para
determinar la extension a la cual la
rabia habia contagiado a los murcie-
lagos locales y se tomaron medidas
por medio de las cuales la enferme-
dad podia ser controlada.
El studio fue hecho por la Divi-
si6n de Medicina Veterinaria en
cooperaci6n con otras dependencias
de salubridad y agricolas situadas en
la Zona del Canal y en la Rep6blica
de PanamA.
La hidrofobia fue descubierta pri-
mero en Panama entire los perros en
1907. Se registraron various casos hu-
manos al aio siguiente y hay prue-
bas de que el ganado tambien muri6
de la enfermedad. DespuBs de un
program de control rigido, la rabia
habia desaparecido aparentemente
del Istmo para 1910, y con excepci6n
de la muerte de un official del Cuerpo
Aereo expuesto en Nicaragua, quien
falleci6 en el Hospital Gorgas en
1943, no se reportaron casos de rabia
animal o humana hasta 1959.
Un rigido program de vacunaci6n
contra la rabia y la concesi6n de li-
cencias a los perros ha estado en
vigor en la Zona del Canal durante
los 6iltimos 10 afios.

Veteran del Canal no

Esta Perdiendo Tiempo

Un veteran del Canal de Panama
con casi 30 afios de servicio, esta
en pos de una nueva carrera. Arthur
A. Albright, Subjefe de Electricidad
en las Esclusas de Gatin, quien ha
estado trabajando para obtener su
grado universitario durante 24 afios,
recibi6 su grado de Bachiller en
Artes de la Universidad del Estado
de Florida el mes pasado. Albright,
quien se jubilarA el afio pr6ximo,
piensa conseguir su "master" y co-
menzar una carrera de ensefianza.
Albright, quien naci6 en New
Haven, Connecticut, vino al Istmo
en 1934 para trabajar como capataz
electricista en la construcci6n de un
hangar de hidroavi6n de la Armada
en Coco Solo. MAs tarde, en el mismo
afio, fue a trabajar con el Canal de
Panama como operario electricista.
Fue ascendido a Capataz, Operario
de la Caseta de Control, Maestro de

Esclusas, y en 1958 fue ascendido
a Subjefe de Electricidad. Todo su
servicio ha sido con las Esclusas de
Albright comenz6 a tomar cursos
por correspondencia en 1947 en la
Universidad de Chicago. Cuando la
Universidad del Estado de Louisiana
comenz6 a dar classes en el Istmo en
1950, Albright hizo sus studios
alli. MAs tarde, cuando la Universi-
dad del Estado de Florida se hizo
cargo, 61 continue sus studios y le
faltaron solamente 30 horas de asis-
tencia al plantel para completar su
grado de Bachiller en Artes. Albright
asisti6 durante el trimestre de otoiio
a la Universidad del Estado de Flo-
rida en Tallahassee, Florida, en
1962, y en el trimestre primaveral
