Aid for Pre-Civil Service Workers



Taking a Car

To States?

Check This

Canal Zone residents traveling to
the United States with their auto-
mobiles are reminded that they must
have proof of purchase in the United
States or they will be subject to a
U.S. customs drawback on U.S.
manufactured vehicles.
The average drawback from $1 to
$28 depending on the size and type
of automobile. This is not an
excise tax.
In a memorandum issued by the
Transportation Section, Canal organ-
ization employees who have pur-
chased used cars on the Isthmus are
advised that they must have evi-
dence from the former owners, either
by State registration or by a bill of
lading which exported the car, that
the automobile was brought from the
United States to Panama in the
owner's name.
Foreign made automobiles pur-
chased abroad will be subject to
U.S. customs duty of 63% percent of
the imported value. This quoted tax
is the U.S. customs duty and not
an internal revenue excise tax.
Canal employees who are sending
their automobiles back to the United
States unaccompanied must make
certain that the vehicle and its con-
tents are included in the customs
declaration. Otherwise, duty will be
charged on foreign merchandise
carried in the car even though its
value is within the $100 per person

Many Who Receive Benefits

Are Citizens of Barbados

Nearly $2 million is spent an-
nually by the Panama Canal organ-
ization in monthly cash relief benefits,
home medical care, free medicines,
and monthly food package distribu-
tion to 2,512 former non-U.S.-citizen
employees, who left Canal service
before legislation gave them civil
service retirement benefits.
Of this number, a large percentage
are citizens of Barbados who chose
to remain in Panama or who returned
to their island home.
Monthly cash relief checks now
averaging $47.70 are being sent to
545 former non-citizen employees
who chose to return home at U.S.
Government expense after completing
their Canal employment. Many
checks are sent to Barbados.
The monthly checks being received
by retired employees living on- the
Isthmus, in Barbados, and elsewhere
in the world, will be increased by
$10 to bring the maximum to $65
a month as soon as legislation,
pending in Congress is passed.
In addition, former employees
living in Panama receive assistance
from U.S. military forces stationed
in the area, Canal Zone church groups
and the American Red Cross, CARE
and civic organizations. Efforts also
are being made to pass legislation
which will give relief benefits to the
widows of former employees.
More than 8,000 superannuated
non-citizen employees have received

Purchase Privilege

Abuse Is Penalized

Twenty-two employees were evicted
from Canal Zone quarters during the
past year because of involvement of
themselves or their families in viola-
tions of regulations governing Pan-
ama Canal purchase privileges,
according to the annual report of the
Executive Secretary.
These employees and their families
automatically lost their Canal Zone
purchase privileges when they were
moved out of Canal Zone housing.
The Office of the Executive
Secretary reviews all reports of mis-
use of the purchase privilege. Strong

disciplinary actions are taken depend-
ing upon the circumstances involved.
Other actions on purchase privilege
violation cases during the year in-
cluded the discharge from the service
of one employee. Five employees
were suspended from work without
pay, and 79 were reprimanded and
warned. In addition, 8 employees had
their purchase privileges canceled, 13
dependents of employees were barred
from future entry into the retail stores
and service centers, and 43 reports
of violations were referred to other
agencies for appropriate action
against the employee.

One week from today, the Panama Canal 50th Anniversary
book goes on sale. Orders have been pouring in at retail stores
and service centers. The books are now being distributed to the
stores and books to fill advance orders are being set aside. The
remainder will go on sale over the counter. To reserve a copy,
or copies, give your name to the clerk in any retail store or
service center. Your copies then will be set aside and you may
pick them up August 14 or any day after that. Be sure to let the
clerk know whether you want English or Spanish language
books. There are 6,500 English and 3,500 Spanish copies for
sale at $2.75 each. A similar book, priced commercially, would
cost $4.95, or more. The volume has 128 pages in two colors
and black and the dust jacket that folds over it is in full color.

monthly cash relief checks ranging
from $25 to $55, depending on the
amount of service, since 1937 when
the cash relief law was passed.
Since,October 1958, all non-citizen
employees have been eligible for and
have received the benefits of the Civil
Service Retirement Act. Annuities
received by former employees retiring
since that date are estimated to
average over $1,000 annually. Future
annuities for non-citizens retiring
from service probably will average
in excess of $1,400 to $1,700 annually
because of higher wages.
In most cases these annuities will
average more than the former em-
ployees could earn annually if they
were employed full time in the
Republic of Panama at the minimum
wage of 45 cents an hour.
All employees who were on con-
tract and who did not take out Pan-
amanian residence certificates, were
offered a free trip home after Canal
employment. Those who returned
are receiving their monthly cash
relief checks just as those who chose
to remain in Panama.
A home medical care program for
former non-citizen employees on the
Isthmus was instituted in 1960 which
now provides for the services of 2
doctors and 5 nurses. All medicines
as well as proprietary drugs, replace-
ment prosthetic devices and eye-
glasses are free. The budget for this
program during the past fiscal year
of 1964 was $79,000, all furnished
by the Panama Canal.
A group health insurance plan was
developed in 1961 for the cash
relief beneficiaries.
At a charge of $3.35 a month, the
cash relief members get free clinics,
semi-private hospital room and board
for as long as necessary, and ambu-
lance service as needed. They are
allowed without charge all drugs,
medicines, anesthesia, bandages,
blood transfusions, free surgical oper-
ations, and a $100 death benefit, with
a double indemnity provision of
$200 for accidental death.
Since the eligible annuitants now
have an average age of 73 years, the
group plan in which they are enrolled
has few counterparts anywhere else
in the world.
In 1962 arrangements were made,
with the consent of the Republic of
Panama, to distribute CARE food
allotments by the Panama Canal.
Food packages containing basic
foodstuffs to supplement and im-
prove the diet of the elderly retirees,
are distributed each month to 4,248
former employees, their widows,
injury cases, and others.
The packages are given out to
both disability relief recipients and
to civil service retirees whose
annuities are less than $75 a month
because of their relatively short
service on the retirement plan.
The actual cash value of the
food plus the cost of distribution,
amounted to $350,000 during fiscal
year 1964, of which $25,000 came
from the Panama Canal budget.

She Really T

Out of Those

"I couldn't believe it; it was the
first time I had ever seen one,"
laughed Mary Livingston, an account-
ing technician, and the luckiest of
six women in the Sailfish and Marlin
Tournament on July 19.
Mrs. Livingston, and a party that
included Hugh Cassibry, Chita Cas-
sihry, Bertha Frensley, Thora Maho-
ney, Lois Harrison, Audra Dougan,
and John Dougan, were fishing off
the coast of Calera Island when she
hooked her first sailfish. It was 10:55
a.m. By noon, she had boated three,
the largest of which tipped the Pifias
Bay scales at 105 pounds.
"I guess I just happened to be in
the right place at the right time,"
Mary shrugged, when asked if she
could explain the catch, but she
wasn't the only lucky "fisherwoman"
aboard the Anayansi. Before the day
was over, Chita Cassibry, of the
Comptroller's Office, hooked another
sailfish, and Mrs. Lois Harrison
caught a 38 pound Amberjack.
However, John Dougan of Mar-
garita, one of the two men aboard,
was not to be completely out-done by
the "weaker sex," and also boated a
sailfish to add to the day's catches.
The score at the end of the day:
Ladies 5, Gentlemen 1.
Aboard the Corbina that day,
catches were not quite as plentiful,
but the six man party, Bill Goldfein,
Leslie Wood, Neil Doherty, Joseph
Vandergrift, William Hele, and Irl
Sanders, hooked four sailfish before

American on Everest is the official
account of the ascent of the world's
most challenging mountain peak
written by James Ramsey Ullman as
official historian of the expedition.
Ullman went with the men as far as
Nepal and was in almost daily con-
tact with them by radio during the
ascent. Thus the author was able to
describe with accuracy the emotional
and physical reactions of the men
during their ordeal. In many cases
he even used their own words. Ullman
was uniquely prepared to write this
book since he is an experienced
climber as well as one of the world's
best known writers on mountaineer-
ing. This vivid and exciting story
gives the reader a feeling of sym-
pathetic understanding which almost
approaches participation. The book
undoubtedly will be one of the
classics of mountain climbing.
Death of a Fox is a Crime Club
selection by Jan Roffman. The action
takes place in an odd double house
in England and the leading character
is Joanna, the young housekeeper.
When she deduces that in addition
to her gruff employer there is a third
but unseen occupant of the house
things start to happen. This is a
better-than-average who-dun-it.
Peru by Ceollrey H. S. Bushnell is
a revised edition of the author's
earlier work and includes the many
new and important discoveries made
in ancient Peruvian cultures during
the past several years. This book
provides a outline of Peruvian
archaeology from the time of the
earliest primitive hunters to the con-
quest of Pizarro. It thus places the
famous world of the Incas in interest-
ing perspective. The book includes
many excellent photographs, maps,

The Ski-Lark, a 30 by 40 foot houseboat which can accommodate 20 persons was designed and built by 8
Canal employees and their families. It is anchored in Gatun Lake.

They Built a Nautical Funhouse;

Now Those Weekends Float By

Here's a new idea in family fun:
a houseboat built for 20!
The Ski-Lark, a 30 feet by 40 feet
double decker houseboat, is a "do-it-
yourself" dream come true. It was
designed and built by eight Canal
employees and their families over a
period of nearly 2 years for skiing,
swimming, and just plain outdoor
Started August 1962 and launched
June 1964, the Ski-Lark is a result
of 1 year and 11 months of night,
Saturday, Sunday, and holiday work.
It is a complete home on the water
with a galley, sleeping quarters for
20 persons, bathroom facilities, a sun
deck, lightplant, a refrigerator and(
a stove.
The eight crew members, in a
combined physical and financial
effort, constructed the houseboat at
Pier 1, Coco Solo. Because of safe
boating regulations, they had to
obtain special permission for the
project from the Marine Bureau.
Originally, the Ski-Lark was to be a
pontoon or single decker flat-
bottomed boat. But with the addition
of so many facilities and conven-
iences, a crane was employed at Coco
Solo to lower it into the water. With
the aid of the tugboat, Alaiuela, the
Ski-Lark transited Catun Locks
June 27 and is now anchored on
Catun Lake between Navy Island
and the west bank of the Canal.
Its builders claim the Ski-Lark is
the perfect innovation for week-end
fun and relaxation. They add that
although it took a good deal of
money, time and labor, their water-
borne house is worth everything they
put into it. Crew members are:
Capt. John Urey, Industrial Divi-

sion; chief engineer Fred Huldtquist, Industrial Division; head chef Doug
Port Captain, Cristobal; first mate Smith, Locks Division; entertainment
Herb Peterson, Industrial Division; director Ralph Dugas, Maintenance
first assistant engineer Bud Huldt- Division; and director of public
quist, Port Captain, Cristobal; direc- relations for the Ski-Lark, Dennis
tor of maintenance Vince Ridge, Gilbert, Industrial Division.

Ted Henter Named

Chief Hydrographer

For most of us the weather is a
topic for small talk, but not so
for Theodore C. Henter, recently
appointed Chief Hydrographer of
the Panama Canal. He succeeds
W. H. Esslinger, who retired after
more than 44 years of service with
the Canal organization.
Weather expert Henter has had
34 years experience keeping tabs on
weather conditions such as tem-
peratures, wind velocities, sunshine,
and rain . all important factors
in the operation of the Panama Canal.
Henter was born in Gorgona in
1910. His father came to the Isthmus
in 1904 and was one of the Canal
builders. Ted was graduated from
Cristobal High School. In 1926, while
still a student, he went to work at the
Lighthouse Division in Gatun, now
known as the Aids to Navigation
Section of the Dredging Division. To
fill in the time after working hours
he took extension courses and later
attended the University of Colorado
at Boulder, Colo.
In 1930, making a firm commit-
ment to his profession, he became
a student recorder, and a short time
later, junior meteorological observer.
Henter is one of the original "ridge
runners" who covered 1,300 square
miles of jungle on foot, going from
station to station, to collect hydro-
logical data. At times, this meant a
3-day hike with a pack on his back,
trudging along a jungle trail to find
out how much water there was and
how much could be expected. Going
up the weatherman's ladder, Henter
was made junior engineer followed
by the position of assistant to the
Chief Hydrographer for more than
12 years.
As Chief Hydrographer, Theodore
Henter is responsible for recom-
mending lake level controls of
Madden and Gatun Lakes to the En-
gineering and Construction Director.
He is responsible for analysis of water
usage, its supply and storage, most
necessary factors in Canal operations.
He is also in charge of the Seismo-
logical observatory at Balboa Heights,
an important link in the worldwide
network of seismological stations.
Ted Henter is an outing-minded
jungle-junketeer who, when he isn't


minding the weather, is out exploring
the old Spanish cobblestone trails
on the Isthmus. He has crossed the
Continental Divide in at least five
different places, from the Pacific to
the Atlantic, in search of Spanish
trails. He and his son, Theodore, Jr.,
13, also explore old caves, and have
found several Indian burial pots. The
best specimens he has donated to the
Panama Museum.
Henter has other hobbies that keep
him out in the open and close to
nature hunting and water skiing. He
also explored Canal waters until a

New Club

To Install

The Cervantes Library Club will
hold a meeting at the Paraiso Junior-
Senior High School study hall Satur-
day, August 8, to install officers. The
recently organized library club of the
Paraiso school community is a branch
of the Canal Zone Library system.
The Library Club is formed of
students of the Paraiso Junior-Senior
High School who also serve as assist-
ant librarians without pay. At the
end of the year, those who serve in
this capacity will receive Certificates
of Recognition.
The library group adopted the
name Cervantes to honor the world
famous Spanish author of Don
Among the plans of the club is a
visit to the Canal Zone Main Library,
as well as to the Biblioteca Nacional
of Panama and the Panama University
Mrs. Anna de Ferrero, librarian,
also teaches the science to those
interested. She dedicates 1 hour a
week to this purpose, and her lessons
are given after school hours.
Some of the club members may
intend to go into the library work
after graduation, it was stated.

Panama's own, Lucho Azcarraga,
and his conjunto, arrived in Long-
view, Tex., for a brief visit en route
to the World's Fair in New York,
where he will play an engagement in

While in Longview visiting his
sisters, Lucho and his conjunto played
at a benefit dance at the Elks' Club,
the entire proceeds of which went to

$2 Millones da PanCanal en Ayuda Anual

El Canal de PanamA desembolsa anualmente aproximada-
mente $2 millones en pagos y beneficios extendidos a antiguos
empleados no estadounidenses de la organizaci6n que dejaron
de servirla antes de la vigencia de leyes que les conceden los
privilegios de la jubilaci6n. La cantidad indicada estA com-
prendida en asistencia en dinero, atenci6n m6dica, medica-
mentos y viveres que se distribuyen mensualmente a las 2,512
personas que se hallan en las circunstancias antedichas. De ese
grupo un alto porcentaje es de barbadienses que escogieron
continuar en PanamA o que ya regresaron a sus lares natives.
Los 545 ex empleados que optaron por retornar a sus islas
nativas al terminarse su trabajo con la organizaci6n, fueron
repatriados a expenses del Gobierno de Estados Unidos y reci-
ben mensualmente cheques por $47.70 (cantidad promedio).
Muchos de esos cheques correspondent a ex empleados en
La cuantia que reciben mensualmente empleados retirados
que contin6an viviendo en el Istmo, en Barbados y en otros
sitios, serA aumentada en $10 mensuales hasta la suma que no
exceda los $65 al mes. La legislaci6n correspondiente cursa
actualmente en el Congreso de Estados Unidos.
Los antiguos empleados del Canal domiciliados en PanamA
reciben adicionalmente ayuda de parte de las fuerzas armadas
de Estados Unidos acantonadas en el Area, de grupos religiosos
y civicos, de la Cruz Roja Americana y de la CARE. A mAs de
todo ello se contemplan medidas legislativas encaminadas a
concederle ayuda a las viudas de esos ex empleados.
MAs de 8,000 de esos ex empleados no estadounidenses inha-
bilitados, han venido recibiendo ayuda financiera en cheques
que fluctian entire los $25 y los $55 mensuales, dependiendo
la cuantia de los afios de servicios prestados. Esa ayuda se



viene otorgando desde 1937 cuando el Congreso la autoriz6.
Desde octubre de 1958 los ex empleados no estadounidenses
han sido incorporados a la Ley de Jubilaci6n del Servicio
Civil. Las anualidades concedidas a ex empleados que se
jubilaron desde esa 6poca, alcanzan un promedio de mAs de
$1,000. En el future se calcula que el promedio fluctuarA entire
los $1,400 y los $1,700 anuales. Ello se debe al aumento
salarial de los 61timos 3 afios.
En la mayoria de los casos las anualidades por jubilaci6n
serAn superiores a la cantidad que el ex empleado devengaria,
si trabajase en la Rep6blica de Panama ganando el salario
minimo de 45 centavos por hora.
A los empleados que fueron contratados para trabajar y que
no obtuvieron su residencia en PanamA, se les sufrag6 el pasaje
de retorno al terminar sus servicios al Canal. Todos los repatria-
dos contindan recibiendo sus cheques mensuales de ayuda al
igual que los que optaron por domiciliarse en PanamA.
En 1960 se implant un program de visits m6dicas al hogar
para beneficio de los ex empleados radicados en el Istmo.
Actualmente prestan ese servicio dos mdilicos y cinco. enfer-
meras. Tanto los medicamentos cuanto cosas asi como ojos de
vidrio y otros enseres prost6ticos son facilitados gratuitamente.
El presupuesto para este program en el pasado afio fiscal de

1964 mont6 a $79,000, cubiertos integramente por la
organizaci6n del Canal.
En 1961 se install un plan de seguro colectivo de salud
para los beneficiaries, encabezado por un comite designado
por el Director del Personal, Edward A. Doolan, y represen-
tantes de los beneficiaries.
Por la m6dica suma de $3.35 al mes los beneficiaries tienen
derecho a clinic gratis, cuarto semi-privado en el hospital y
alimentaci6n, asi como servicio de ambulancia. Se les dan
gratis las medicines, anestesia, vendajes, transfusions de
sangre, gastos de cirugia y la suma de $100 en caso de muerte,
cantidad que es duplicada en caso de muerte por accident.
El plan colectivo no tiene paralelo en el mundo si se con-
sidera que los beneficiaries tienen una edad promedio de 73
afios. El plan estA calculado a ahorrarles los dispendiosos
gastos m6dicos que podrian sobrevenirles a esa avanzada edad.
En 1962 se hicieron arreglos para la eficiente distribuci6n
de paquetes de viveres regalados por la CARE a trav6s de las
facilidades de la organizaci6n del Canal de PanamA. Los arre-
glos fueron cordados entire el Embajador de Estados Unidos en
PanamA, el Gobemador de la Zona del Canal, grupos religiosos,
de la Zona del Canal y de la CARE, con el asentimiento de la
Repdblica de PanamA.
Paquetes de viveres son entregados cada mes a 4,248 ex em-
pleados de edad avanzada, sus viudas u otros sobrevivientes.
Los viveres son donados a los beneficiaries por incapacidad
fisica y a los jubilados con menos de $75 mensuales (personas
que solo trabajaron por tiempo relativamente corto).
El valor de los viveres, sumado al cost de distribuci6n,
lleg6 a $350,000 en el afio fiscal de 1964; de esa suma $25,000
provinieron del presupuesto del Canal de Panama.

El Ski-Lark, una casa flotante de 30 por 40 pies que puede acomodar 20 personas fue disefiado
y construido por ocho empleados del Canal y sus families. EstA anclado en el Lago Gatun.

dQue tal una casa flotante? Ademirs
de dar albergue podria ser hasta di-
vertido morar en una. Algo asi como
la iamada Ski-Lark, de 30 x 40 pies
y dos cubiertas.
Fue disefiada y construida por 8
empleados del Canal y sus parientes
en etapas que se prolongaron por
2 afios. La utilizan para el esqui
acuitico, la nataci6n y como lugar de
pasar dias agradables al aire libre.
Iniciada en agosto de 1962, fue
flotada en junio de este afio. Se tra-
baj6 en su construcci6n durante un
afio y 11 meses por la noche, los
sAbados, domingos y feriados.
Tiene todas las comodidades indis-
pensables: cocina, camarotes para
20 personas, bafios, azotea para aso-
learse, plant elkctrica, refrigeradora
y estufa.
Los ocho constructores de naves

combinaron sus fuerzas fisicas y fi-
nancieras para edificar la casa flotan-
te en el Muelle 1 de Coco Solo. En
comformidad con reglamentos de
seguridad maritima, tuvieron que
obtener un permiso especial de la
Direcci6n de Marina para construir
su nave.
Originalmente se pens6 y fue en
hacer una barcaza solamente. Pero
cuando se decidi6 irle agregando
ciertas facilidades convenientes, la
cosa se modific6 . y complic6.
Al punto que al terminarse la cons-
trucci6n hubo que emplearse una
grua para bajarla al agua y tuvo que
ser remolcada por el Alhajuela para
cruzar las esclusas de Gatin el 27
de junior y ser anclada entire la isla
Navy y la orilla occidental del Canal
en el lago Gatan.

Veintid6s empleados fueron desalo-
jados de residencias de la Zona del
Canal durante el pasado alio por estar
envueltos ellos o sus familiares en vio-
laciones de las reglamentaciones que
regulan los privilegios de compra en
el Canal de PanamA, de acuerdo con
el informed annual del Secretario
Estos empleados y sus families
perdieron automAticamente sus pri-
vilegios de compra en la Zona del
Canal cuando dejaron de residir en
la Zona del Canal.
La oficina del Secretario Ejecutivo
revisa todos los informes sobre el mal
uso del privilegio de compra. Se
toman medidas disciplinarias estric-

tas de acuerdo con las circunstancias
Otras medidas tomadas en casos de
violaci6n de privilegio de compra
durante el anio incluyeron el despido
del servicio de un empleado. Cinco
empleados fueron suspendidos del
trabajo sin pago, y setenta y nueve
reprendidos y advertidos. Ademas,
se cancelaron privilegios de compra
a 8 empleados, a 13 dependientes de
empleados se les prohibit entrar a los
almacenes o centros de servicios co-
munales, y 43 informes de violacio-
nes fueron remitidas a otras agencies
para que se tomaran las medidas
apropiadas contra el empleado.

Ski-Lark es la perfect soluci6n para
los fines de semana. Alegan que tanto
el tiempo cuanto el dinero empleado
en su construcci6n son una magnifica
La "tripulaci6n" del Ski-Lark la
comprenden: CapitAn John Urey, de
la Division Industrial; Ingeniero Jefe,
Fred Huldtquist, Capitania del Puer-
to, Crist6bal; Primer Oficial, Herb
Peterson, Divisi6n Industrial; Primer
Ingeniero, Bud Huldtquist, Capitania
del Puerto de Crist6bal; Director de
Mantenimiento, Vince Ridge de la
Division Industrial; "chef" Doug
Smith, Divisi6n de las Esclusas; Di-
rector de diversiones, Ralph Dugas,
Division de Mantenimiento y Jefe de
Relaciones Piblicas, Dennis Gilbert,
Division Industrial.

Si ousted es dueio de un bote tle
alto bordo o funcionario de segu-
ridad no puede perderse esta de-
mostraciin ya que en ello podria
irle la vida.
La Oficina de Seguridad auspi-
ciard una denmostracidn de salva-
mento de mar-aire el midrcoles,
12 de agosto a las 9:30 de la ma-
fana. La demostraci6n se llevard
a cabo en el edificio nimero 10,
Area Industrial de Balboa, y es-
tard a cargo del Sargento James
Llewellyn, de la Fuerza Aerea del
Comnando Sur.
Esa demostraciin se hard prin-
cipalmente para provecho de los
funcionarios de seguridad, inspec-
tores, representantes y otros huds-
pedes de la Zona del Canal.
El sargento dernostrard el equi-
po empleado en salvamento de
aire a mar, incluyendo balsas sal-
vavidas, sefiales luminosas y apa-
rejos para la supervivencia, asi
como otros articulos lanzados des-
de un avi6n a sobrevivientes de
desastres maritimos.



Para muchos de nosotros el tiempo
es un tOpico de poca conversaci6n,
pero no para Theodore C. Henter, re-
cientemente nombrado Jefe Hidr6-
grafo del Canal de Panamai, cargo en
el cual reemplaza a W. H. Esslinger,
quien se jubilo despubs de mAs de
44 ailos de servicio con la organiza-
ci6n del Canal.
El expert ineteorologista Henter
tiene una experiencia de 34 afios en
las condiciones atmosf6ricas tales
como temperatures, velocidades del
viento, luz del sol y lluvia, todos estos
factors importantes en la operaci6n
del Canal de PanamA.
Henter naci6 en Corgona en 1910.
Su padre vino al Istmo en 1904 y
fue uno de los constructors del
Canal. Ted se gradu6 en la Escuela
Secundaria de Crist6bal. En 1926,
mientras era estudiante, trabaj6 en la
Division de Faros en Cat6n, cono-
cida ahora como el Ramo de Sefiales
para la Navegaci6n Maritima de la,
Division de Dragas. Para llenar el
tiempo despu6s de las horas de tra-
bajo, tom6 cursos de extension y mas
tarde asisti6 a la Universidad de
Colorado, en Boulder, Colorado.

En 1930 se convirti6 en Estudiante
Registrador y poco despues en Obser-
vador Meteorol6gico.
Como Jefe Hidr6grafo, Henter es
responsible en la recomendaci6n de
controls de nivel de los Lagos
Madden y Catin al Director de In-
genieria y Construcci6n. Es respon-
sable por el anAlisis del uso, abaste-
cimiento de agua, los factors mas
necesarios en las operaciones del
Canal. Tambien tiene a su cargo el
Observatorio Sismol6gico en Balboa
Heights, un eslab6n important en
la cadena mundial de estaciones
Cuando no esta en sus asuntos del
tiempo, a Hunter le gusta ir por la
selva a explorer los viejos caminos
espafioles en el Istmo. Ha cruzado
la Cordillera Continental por lo me-
nos en cinco diferentes lugares, del
Pacifico al Atlantico, en busca de
caminos espafioles. El y su hijo Theo-
dore, Jr., de 13 afios, tambikn explo-
ran viejas cuevas, y han encontrado
various entierros indios. Los mejores
especimenes los ha donado al Museo
de PanamA.

a 10 asaltos.
