Canal's 50th
Congratulations were received from
hundreds of shipping companies and
shippers from all over the world on
the occasion of the 50th anniversary
of the opening of the Panama Canal.
Addressed to Governor Fleming,
the messages were sent by cable and
radio by some of the Canal's best
customers in the United States and
They included cables from such
well known companies as the East
Asiatic Company of Copenhagen,
Denmark which pointed out that its
ships had used the Canal during the
past 50 years and the Royal Nether-
lands Steamship Company of Amster-
dam, which expressed the hope that
the Panama Canal slogan of the
"Land Divided The World United"
would last infinitely.
The Swedish America Line cabled
its heartiest congratulations from
New York,.gave its sincerest tanks
for the wonderful cooperation'in the
past and hoped for a large measure
of success in the future.
Joseph S. Dantoni, President of
the Standard Fruit and Steamship
Company, old Canal users, sent con-
gratulations and the sincere thanks
for the assistance and cooperation of
the Canal personnel.
Erline Naess, head of the Naess
Group which sends super bulk car-
riers through the Canal, cabled from
New York congratulations and best
wishes and the compliments of his
company on the "forward and pro-
gressive attitude that has existed in
the past," an attitude he hoped
would be continued in the future.
The Chilean Compania Sud Ame-
ricana de Vapores called the Panama
Canal vital to world commerce." The
Blue Funnel Line in Liverpool sa-
luted the Canal's anniversary and
sent "all hands good wishes for the
second fifty."
Messages also were received from

Pay Raise

In Sept. 21


This was the scene in the rotunda of the administration building this past Friday as old timers and dignitari
gathered. The old timers were presented mementoes of the Panama Canal's 50th Anniversary and, after tha
a plaque was unveiled in front of the building.

Memories of the early days of Canal life were no doubt on the lips of these conversationalists, pictured during
the celebration this past weekend. From left, Maurice Thatcher, member of the original Isthmian Canal Commission

A Quick Quiz

On Views of

Cost Control

How's your cost control these days?
Everyone from the President on
down believes in cutting expenses.
The old proverb "Watch the pennies
and the dollars will take care of them-
selves" still holds true. But what are
you doing to control costs in your
own area of responsibility? Are you
up-to-date on business economics?
Check your knowledge with the fol-
lowing simple test reprinted by per-
mission from the U.S. Civil Service
Commission Employee Bulletin.
Do you know how much your daily
paperwork routine costs? Chances
are you don't. And to prove the point,
Remington Rand Systems has devised
a short test of seven questions.
1. How much does it cost to keep
a carbon copy on file for one year?
A. 20 B. 40 C. 63'0
How much does it cost to dictate,
type and mail a business letter?
A. 500 B. $1.25 C. $2
3. If a $20,000 executive spends
3 minutes every hour just waiting for
data, how much is his wasted time
worth each year? A. $250 B. $700
C. $1,000
4. How much does it cost every
year to create and maintain an
ordinary 4-drawer file? A. $105
B. $640 C. $3,110
5. How much cheaper is a hand-
written memo over a typed or dic-
tated one? A. 10% B. 45% C. 60%
6. How many sheets of paper do
most companies keep on file for each
employee on the payroll? A. 240
B. 1,254 C. 2,000
7. What percentage spent on
paperwork is wasted? A. 15% B. 35%
C. 65%
What were your answers? Well,
according to Remington Rand Sys-
tems, unless your office is equipped
with mechanized filing and reference
systems the average supervisor will
find that the correct answers are all
choice "C"!




A tourist visiting Italy reports the
following incident:
After visiting the Cellini silver
factory in Florence, a woman tourist
asked the tour guide, "Does Italy
have silver mines?"
"No, lady," was the reply.
Later, after seeing the 24-carat
gold stamping on the famous Floren-
tine purses, the woman asked, "Does
Italy have any gold mines?"
"No lady," was the answer again.
"Italy doesn't have any gold mines
or any silver mines. Italy is not a rich
country. All we have is spaghetti

On Quarters Maintenance

Minor Do-It-Yourself Projects Can

Reduce Nuisance Type Problems

Personnel of the Housing Branch
and Maintenance Division are
anxious to help householders elim-
inate nuisance type maintenance
Cooperation along this line can
have substantial benefits. Reducing
such maintenance calls leaves more
time and money for essential and
desirable work, and the householder
is more likely to greet maintenance
personnel with a smile instead of a
A few of the things householders
can do to make the maintenance job
easier, and life simple for both main-
tenance personnel and the house-
Door Locks
Cylinder type locks have two
common enemies. The first enemy is
the oil can. When a lock begins to
work a little stiffly for any reason the
first solution that comes to mind is
to oil it. Though this treatment seems
at first to solve the problem it in
reality will usually complicate the
problem by catching dust and dirt
and creating a gummy mess that will
eventually freeze the lock. The pre-
ferred treatment is to blow a little
fine graphite into the lock. This dry
lubricant will have a lasting effect
and will not "freeze" the lock. Gra-
phite is available in convenient
plastic containers at the Retail Stores.
The second enemy of locks is the
conscientious housekeeper who likes
to have her brass all shined. Brass
polish is usually composed of a
chemical which attacks and dissolves
the surface films of the brass and an
abrasive which when rubbed removes
the softened or dissolved film and
shines the exposed clean metal.
When this combination gets into
crevices or the key slot of a lock,
however, it is impossible to rub it
away and it quickly makes the lock
One common reason for doors-
and locks-not working properly is
that the hinges have been sprung.
The most common reason for this is the
convenient but destructive practice
of placing a stick or wedge between
the door and door frame at the hinge
end of the door to hold it open. Such
wedges provide a very large leverage
and the slightest pressure on the knob
by someone who doesn't know about
the wedge is enough to spring the
hinges out of shape. Thereafter the
door will not operate properly until
the hinges are replaced.
A common problem encountered is
the broken screw in the aluminum
windows where screens or parts have
been removed to facilitate cleaning
and then too much force has been
applied in replacing the screw. The
small aluminum screws can be easily
ruptured by someone anxious to
make a tight fit, and care must be
taken merely to secure the screw
snugly without breaking it.
Another window problem is the
window operator. The gears that
drive the jalousies or awning type
windows are held in place by the
cover plate. When the screws hold-
ing the cover plate become loose for
anv reason, the gears do not mesh
properly. If the screws become loose
enough the gears will jam and if the
handle is forced the whole operator
must be replaced. If an operator
begins to work with difficulty the
householder may check to make sure
that the little cover plate is not loose.
If he is unable to secure the plate and
obtain smooth operation he should
notify the maintenance man.
Dripping Faucets
Perhaps the most common problem
and one of the most annoying to the

householder is the dripping faucet.
This problem is unusually severe in
the Canal Zone because of several
reasons. First, is the fact that the
water pressures are necessarily high
in many areas because" of the hilly
terrain and the need to carry water
to the high areas. These high pres-
sures make the slightest leak much
more severe by forcing a high velo-
city stream through the opening. The
high velocity stream tends to cut a
larger passageway and thus the leak
grows rapidly.
A second contributing factor is the
fact that the water is at a consider-
ably higher temperature than gen-
erally encountered in the United
States and this allows it to go faster
through smaller holes because of its
reduced viscosity and also permits
it to cut grooves more readily by
a complicated mechanism called
A third factor is the fact that many
people have maids who have not
been properly indoctrinated on how
to shut off a faucet. A faucet which
has been almost shut off may show
just a tiny slow drip coming out of
the end of the faucet but at the
washer where the water is coming
through there is a small but high
velocity torrent busily enlarging its
passageway. On the other hand if
the faucet is turned off much tighter
than necessary each time the washer
soon becomes compressed and loses
its resiliency and the first time its
turned down on a bit of rust or grit
it too will begin to leak. The proper
way, then, to turn off a faucet is just
hard enough so that no drip occurs.
Of course, in a faucet which has
already been damaged this is
practically impossible.
Stopped Fixtures
A very common maintenance
problem which the householder can
help to minimize is the stopped drain.
There are many causes of stopped
drains, of course, and there are even
some which are not the householder's
fault. Among those which the house-
holder contributes to either directly
or by inadequate instruction of his
servant are:
1. Pouring grease down kitchen
2. Removing the strainer from the
kitchen sink when it is clogged with
waste material so that the dish water
can drain faster, thus inevitably
allowing solid matter including
silverware and dish cloths to go down
the drain and cause a stoppage.
3. Flushing waste food such as
rice, coffee grounds, etc., down the
Emergency Calls
When the householder has an
emergency situation which cannot
wait its regular turn in the mainte-
nance process he can help hold cost
down by differentiating between the
type of emergency which can wait
for regular hours maintenance and
one that has to be cared for imme-
diately. Obviously, if there is a
broken water pipe spraying the living
room, that is a real "hurry up" emer-
gency. On the other hand, a lavatory
in the maid's toilet that became
stopped up Friday night could wait
until Monday morning, especially if
the maid doesn't live in or work on

The supervisor was annoyed by
the amount of noise from a class-
room. He entered. Seeing one boy
taller than the others and talking a
great deal, he hauled him out to
another room and stood him in a
corner. "Now you stay there until I
tell you can go back to your room,"
he ordered.
About 15 minutes later a small
head peered around the door and a
small voice asked, "Please, Sir, may
we have our teacher back now?"

He 'Sees'

In Unique Ways

Lorenzo Tapia, a Spanish major at
the University of California in Los
Angeles and native of California,
spends- his summers traveling alone.
He does it for fun, as do the many
other tourists he meets. Unlike them,
however, Lorenzo does not collect
visual images of the countries he
visits, but gathers impressions through
his other senses. He has been blind
since his second birthday.
Lorenzo, who has visited Europe,
parts of North Africa, and the Carib-
bean islands in the past 2 years, is
spending this summer traveling
through Central America. Being han-
dicapped by blindness does not keep
him from thoroughly enjoying his
vacation trips though.

You May Save

A Life by

Reading This

When seconds count-give artificial
respiration. Knowing how to do this
may save a life.
The American National Red Cross
furnished these procedures:
If there is foreign matter visible
in the mouth, wipe it out quickly with
your fingers or a cloth wrapped
around your fingers.
1. Tilt the head back so the chin
is pointing upward. Pull or push the
jaw into a jutting out position. These
maneuvers should relieve obstruction
of the airway by moving the base
of the tongue away from the back
of the throat.
2. Open your mouth wide and
place it tightly over the victim's
mouth. At the same time, pinch the
victim's nostrils shut or close the
nostrils with your cheek, or close the
victim's mouth and place your mouth
over the nose. Blow into the victim's
mouth or nose. Air may be blown
through the victim's teeth even
though they may be clenched. The
first blowing efforts should determine
whether or not obstruction exists.
3. Remove your mouth, turn your
head to the side, and listen for the
return rush of air that indicates air
exchange. Repeat the blowing effort.
For an adult, blow vigorously at the
rate of 12 breaths per minute.
4. If you are not getting air
exchange, quickly turn the victim on
his side and strike several sharp
blows between the shoulder blades
to dislodge foreign matter. Again,
sweep your fingers through the
victim's mouth to remove foreign
You must give artificial respiration
in the first several minutes after
breathing stops. Resuscitators will do
this job automatically, but start
imouth-to-mouth resuscitation while
the resuscitator is being set up and

Cuando entire vida o muerte sean segundos los que cuentan, aplique
la respiraci6n artificial a la victim. Una vida puede defender en saber
la forma de hacerlo.
La Cruz Roja Nacional Americana indica los procedimientos a
Si en la boca de la victim hay alg6n element extrafio, quiteselo sin
pirdida de tiempo ya sea con los dedos o con un trapo colocado alrededor
de los dedos.
1. Incline la cabeza de la victim hacia atris de manera que el ment6n
quede hacia arriba. Coloque la quijada en posici6n saliente. Estas pre-
cauciones podrian eliminar obstrucci6n alguna al es6fago con el aleja-
miento de la lengua de la victim de la parte trasera de la garganta.
2. Abra bien su propia boca y col6quela hermeticamente sobre la
boca de la victim. Al mismo tiempo, oprima las ventanillas de la nariz
de la victim o bien ci&rrelas con su carrillo. Tambidn puede tapar la
boca de la victim y colocar su boca sobre la nariz. Sople la boca o nariz
de la victim. Se puede soplar aire a trav6s de los dientes de la victim
por cerrados que esten. Su primer intent en soplar aire determinarA
si existe o no obstrucci6n alguna.
3. Separe su boca de la boca de la victim, double su cabeza de lado
y escuche el sonido de la penetraci6n del aire que le indique intercambio
interno de ese aire. Repita los soplos de parte suya. En el caso de un
adulto, sople en&rgicamente a raz6n de 12 soplos por minute.
4. Si no se escucha un intercambio de aire en la victim, n6tese la
posici6n de su cabeza y de la quijada. Si ain despues de eso no se escucha
intercambio de aire en la victim, volteela lo antes possible sobre su
costado y apliquele various golpes fuertes en el omoplato o espaldillas para
eliminar cualquier substancia extrafia. De nuevo pase sus dedos por
dentro de la boca de la victim para sacar cualquier element obstructor.
Debe dar a la victim respiraci6n artificial en los primeros minutes
despu6s de que haya dejado de respirar. Los aparatos resucitadores hacen
6sto automAticamente, pero comience la resucitaci6n bucal mientras se
install y se pone a prueba el aparato resucitador.

Espera usted lo inesperado? NNo? Ha conseguido 4 a.m. del domingo el grupo decidi6 traerlo de regreso
usted mis de lo que fue a comprar? Si? Bueno, el a puerto para que un m6dico lo atendiera. Afortuna-
Torneo de Merlin y Pez Vela que se inici6 hace damente se encontraron con la Anayansi a medio
varias semanas, ha proporcionado algunas sorpresas camino hacia Balboa y el hombre fue trasbordado a

a los pescadores y aficionados a la pesca.
Por ejemplo, en la excursion de la Corbina en el
fin de semana del 8 de agosto, hubo ciertas cosas
interesantes. El grupo incluia a Rony Angermuller,
de la Aduana de Crist6bal; Ned Fleckner, de Personal
en Anc6n; Floyd Baker, de la Direcci6n de Marina en
Crist6bal; Earl Baughner, de la Divisi6n de Ferroca-
rril en Balboa; Jerry Detamore, de la Divisi6n de
Servicios Administrativos en Balboa Heights; y
Frank Frauenheim, de Abastos, en Balboa. Los seis
hombres y dos tripulantes salieron a la mar el sAbado
por la mariana para un viaje de 3 dias de pesca en
Bahia de Pifias y regresar.
El primer dia no tuvieron suerte alguna con pez
velas o merlines. Al caer la noche, uno de los hombres
a bordo estaba enfermo. La Corbina ancl6 en Punta
Cocos en el Archipi6lago de las Perlas el sAbado por
la noche con la esperanza de que mejorara. Para las

esa embarcaci6n.
La Corbina dio la vuelta y se dirigi6 nuevamente
a Bahia de Pifias. Y las cosas resultaron bien por un
tiempo. Frank Frauenheim pesc6 un pez vela, el pri-
mero en el viaje. Los otros hombres habian visto
muchos peces, incluyendo delfines, bonitos y atunes,
pero ningun pez vela o merlin.
Todavia estaban tratando de sacar algo cuando se
registry otra interferencia. Alrededor de las 12:30 p.m.
la Corbina recibi6 una llamada de urgencia de la
Viking, otra lancha de pesca, que tenia problems con
su motor. La Viking fue recogida a las 5:30 y llevada
en remolque hasta Bahia de Pifias, llegando las dos
lanchas como a las 8 p.m.
El mar estaba calmado y los hombres quisieron per-
manecer a bordo. por lo que echaron el ancla y se
dispusieron a dormir. LLo consiguieron? iNo!
El domingo a las 3 a.m., la naturaleza se enfureci6.

Una tormenta azot6 la bahia y la Corbina se enfrent6
al viento, mar y oleaje durante el resto de la noche.
Jerry Detamore informa que la Corbina sac6 el ancla
durante varias horas. Era un caso cierto de "INo se
puede ganar!"
Al amanecer, sin embargo, los peces esperaron.
Jerry sac6 dos pez velas, Frank otro y Earl Baughner
dos, lo cual era admirable considerando todos los pro-
blemas que tuvieron. Rony Angermuller, sin embargo,
sac6 de veras un ganador. Pesc6 un merlin negro de
340 libras, el inico merlin sacado hasta esa fecha ya
sea por la Corbina como por la Anayansi en el torneo.
La pesca fue algo excepcional, ya que este era el
primer intent de Rony en la pesca de alta mar. Esa
es la suerte del principiante. El operario de la lancha
Larchan "Robby" Robinson estaba orgulloso tambien
del pescado, y con much raz6n. Era el trig6simo
merlin subido a bordo de su lancha en 6 afios.
El resume del viaje de 3 dias fue: una enfermedad,
una misi6n de rescate, una tormenta, 14 pez velas
sacados, cinco izados, un merlin atrapado. Eso es una
verdadera pesca.

Con-un significativo acto cultural observ6 la Escuela Elemental de Santa Cruz el Cincuentenario
del Canal de PanamA durante el pasado fin de semana. Una select concurrencia se di6 cita en
el auditorio del plantel para ese acto que revisti6 gran solemnidad. La grAfica capt6 una escena
alusiva a la ocasi6n que no require mayor explicaci6n ya que habla por si misma. Alumnos

del plantel aparecen

en el hermoso cuadro aleg6rico que fu6 muy aplaudido.



Tres combates consecutivos por
titulos nacionales de boxeo profesio-
nal habra en el Cimnasio Nacional
en las tres proximas semanas.
El domingo pr6ximo se enfrentarin
por el titulo liviano el campc6n
Esteban Santamaria y el retador
Humberto Trottman.
El campe6n peso mosca national,
Pedro Carvajal, arriesgara su corona
de las 112 libras el domingo 30 del
present frente al colonense Senen
El domingo 6 de septiembre se
medirin por el campeonato de la
division gallo, el titular de las 118 li-
bras, Camilo Valdespino (Cami Beto)
y Adalides Mufioz.
Todos estos encuentros han sido
pactados a 12 asaltos.
Es la primera vez en much tiempo
que tres titulos de boxeo serin dis-
putados en un mismo tinglado en
tres semanas consecutivas.
Todo ello acusa el vivo interns que
tienen los campeones de reafirmar su
condici6n como tales en sus respec-
tivas categories, con lo que sale ga-
nando la afici6n ya que se mantiene

al rojo vivo el entusiasmo.
Los retadores, por su parte, en-
cuentran la oportunidad de mostrar
sus quilates y probarle al piblico,
una vez por todas, si en verdad tienen
madera de campeones.
