More 50th Anniversary

Books Due This Month
A new supply of 6,000 Panama Canal 50th Anniversary
books is scheduled to arrive November 24 to fill mounting
orders at clubhouses and retail stores in the Canal Zone.
The first printing was a complete sellout in English, though
copies in Spanish are available.
For those who are wondering what to give that favorite
uncle or close friend in the States for Christmas, the book,
at $2.75 a copy, might be an attractive answer.
For Christmas customers, a special envelope with holiday
printing on the outside is being designed and will be avail-
able before the end of the month. To mail the book to the
United States costs less than 20 cents by regular mail.
To be sure your copies are available, order now.

Special Presentation Made

To Veteran Retired Employee

One of the oldest retired em-
ployees in the Canal Zone, who
somehow missed out on the 50th
anniversary celebration August 15,
received a prized 50th anniversary
silver medallion and a Panama Canal
anniversary book last week from
Lieutenant Governor Parker.
He is 85-year-old Stephen Burton,
who not only worked nearly 50
years with the Panama Canal and
the Panama Railroad, but is a
second generation Canal employee.
Burton was born on the Isthmus in
1879 shortly before his father started
working on the French Canal. The
family originally came from Jamaica.
The silver medallion given all
former employees who were with the
Canal during the construction period
was presented in the Lieutenant
Governor's office at Balboa Heights.
Burton started his service with the
Panama Railroad in Colon in 1897
as a stevedore on the company's
Colon piers. He was employed later
as a locomotive crane fireman and

operator. During the years, he was
connected with the Dredging Divi-
sion and other Canal units, but most
of his service was with the Panama
Since his retirement in 1941,
Burton has been living in Santa
Cruz with his son-in-law and daugh-
ter, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Wilson.
He has five children and more grand-
children and great-grandchildren
than he can count.
He was accompanied to Balboa
Heights by Julian Hoyt, vice pres-
ident of the Santa Cruz Civic Council.

Low Malaria

Case Record
Continuation of the low malaria
case record established in 1963 is
indicated by the latest report from
the Health Bureau. Health Bureau
reports show 17 cases of malaria so
far this year.
The breakdown of the cases shows
that three cases were non-U.S.
citizen employees of the Panama
Canal. Six malaria cases occurred
among military personnel. The re-
maining eight cases reported were
from sources outside Canal Zone
All victims, which includes depen-
dents or relatives of employees living
in adjacent areas of the Canal Zone,
were bitten by the malaria-carrying
mosquito where control of the mos-
quito breeding sites is negligible and
a problem.
Of the three Panama Canal em-
ployees who contracted malaria, one
was a Rainbow City resident who
overnighted in Puerto Pilon. Another
was bitten at his residence in Vista
Abajo along the Isthmian Highway.
The third employee was fishing on
the Chagres River at night. All three
of these locations are in unsanitated
areas where the anopheles mosquito,
the malaria vector, has many breeding
Individual control measures that
can be taken are the use of repellents
and adequate protective clothing
when in these areas.

Governor Fleming, in his capacity as President of the Canal
Zone United Fund, has announced that the 1964 campaign has
gone well over the top.
Contributions and reports at the time the SPILLWAY went to
press totaled almost $161,000 against a dollar goal set at
$142,500 to benefit the 20 participating agencies of the Canal
Zone United Fund.
Governor Fleming also announced that the Panama Canal
organization had received total contributions and pledges
amounting to $111,700 which is more than 150 percent of its
goal of $73,800.
Fred L. Denton, campaign committee chairman, announced
that Air Force contributions had passed the 117 percent mark
and Southern Command was over the top with more than
106 percent of its goal. U.S. Embassy and Navy were 108 and
103 percent, respectively, of their dollar goals. Miscellaneous
other Government agencies in the Canal Zone had reported
attaining 81 percent of goal.
Army was at 60 percent of goal, but had scheduled some
special activities to boost its total.
Special Gifts and Activities contributions and revenues
amounted to 67 percent of the $31,300 goal.
Special activities remaining are the Palm Bowl Football
Game at Balboa Stadium tonight and the United Fund Telethon
November 20 at the SCN-TV studio at Fort Clayton.


Two Steamship Lines

Mark Anniversaries

Two steamship companies which
have, perhaps, the closest connections
with Panama and the Panama Canal
of any of the shipping lines now using
the waterway, this year and next are
celebrating their 125th anniversaries.
They are the Royal Mail Lines,
which received its royal charter Sep-
tember 26, 1839-75 years before the
Panama Canal was completed-and
the Pacific Steam Navigation Co., its
subsidiary, which was chartered
February 17, 1840, only 3 years after
the young Victoria became Queen of
The Royal Mail Line was organized
as the Royal Mail Steam Packet Co.
to transport mail to and from England
and the West Indies, North and
South America and other overseas
Formation of the original company
is credited almost wholly to the
initiative and foresight of James
MacQueen, who was born at Craw-
ford, Lanarkshire, Scotland, in 1778
and who probably had no idea that
ships of his company eventually
would be traveling to South America
through a canal constructed through
the Isthmus of Panama.
The Pacific Steam was organized
by a U.S. citizen named William
Wheelwright, who obtained a British
Royal charter to send ships into
service between England and South
Before the Canal was built, pas-
sengers destined for the west coast
of Central and South America were
taken to Colon aboard Royal Mail
ships and transported across the
Isthmus by Chagres River boats and
pack mule and later by the Panama
Old records show that the land-
river-mule back arrangement cost the
customers about $18 and took 4 days
and nights without meals and other
incidental expenses.
The passengers then boarded the
PSNC ships on the Pacific side, where
the company had established a base

for workshops, houses, drydocks, and
hospitals on Morro Island, near
Both the PSNC and the Royal Mail
Co. subscribed capital to the Panama

RP Engineers

Will Visit

Water Plant
The actual process of water purifi-
cation from the time the raw water
enters the intake pipes until it is
pumped into the water mains and
leaves the customer's faucet will be
reviewed by a group of 10 Panama-
nian graduate civil and sanitary en-
gineers at the Miraflores Filtration
Plant early in December.
The engineers are to make a 2-day
visit to the Canal Zone water purifi-
cation facilities on the Pacific side as
part of a refresher course in the
operation of water treatment plants
given at the University of Panama
from November 23 to December 4.
Members of the Miraflores plant
staff, under the direction of Robert
J. Risberg, Chief of the Water and
Laboratories Branch, will lecture and
escort the visiting engineers on a
step-by-step inspection of the entire
water purification process.
The engineers are making the
study in connection with a plan for
the control and supply of potable
water in a number of rural communi-
ties in the Republic of Panama.
The course at the university will
be under the direction of Prof. Delfin
Galves, Dr. Francisco Alciaturi of
the World Health Organization, and
Guillermo Varas, consultant for the
Panama Health organization.

Store Section

Moved, Other

Moves Studied

The Balboa Retail Store is taking
on a trimmer look these days, with
one change already effected and
another under study. As of Novem-
ber 4, the candy and tobacco section
at the front of the store was closed
and items from this section were
moved close to the register of the
6-item express line near the side exit
A study now is being made of the
pastry sections at the Balboa and the
Margarita Retail Stores. The pastry
section in each of these two shopping
centers is due to be closed, and the
study involves which pastry items can
be readily packaged to be carried on
the self-service shelves.
A decisive factor in the decision to
close the pastry sections in the Balboa
Retail Store and the Margarita Retail
Store is the proximity, in each case,
to a facility that is open longer hours.
Elimination of duplication of a
service also represents a decided
The employees in the sections that
are being closed will be absorbed in
other jobs as vacancies occur.

Vital Aviation Steps

Taken 20 Years Ago

In recognition of one of the most
significant and important agreements
ever concluded on the subject of
international civil aviation, President
Johnson has proclaimed December as
"United States International Aviation
Month." The Council of the Inter-
national Civil Aviation Organization
(ICAO) also is planning an official
celebration and requesting participa-
tion by all 106 member nations.
Twenty years ago, in the closing
days of World War II, a handful of
far-sighted men met in Chicago to
develop a plan which would guar-
antee freedom of the air to all nations
wishing to engage in international
civil aviation after the war. The result
was the "Chicago Convention."
Among the achievements of the
A permanent international act of
great importance-the Convention on
International Civil Aviation-was
concluded. Although lacking the con-
troversial economic articles, it pro-
vided a complete modernization of
the basic treaty governing the inter-

national control and utilization of
the air.

The constitution was provided for
the International Civil Aviation
Organization. Some 106 States are
now members of the ICAO. Aims and
objectives of the organization as
defined in the convention "are to
develop the principles and techniques
of international air navigation and
to foster the planning and develop-
ment of international air transport."
While its authority is limited to the
technical field, ICAO also studies and
recommends actions on problems in
the economic area.

An interim agreement for many
phases of civil aviation, the Interna-
tional Air Services Transit Agree-
ment, was concluded. Signatories
agree to exchange the privileges of
peaceful transit and non-traffic land-
ing. Some 65 nations, including the
United States, are parties to this
agreement. A worldwide common
basis was established for the tech-
nical and operational aspects of inter-
national civil aviation.

Green Medicine, by Margaret B.
Kreig, is an absorbing account of
botanical investigations around the
globe, many of which are as exciting
as mystery stories. They include the
discovery that ornamental periwinkle
can be used in the preparation of a
drug which may be effective in child-
hood leukemia; the story of the dis-
covery of the use of cortisone for
arthritis; the development of useful
drugs from vegetable arrow poisons,
and many other breakthroughs. Mrs.
Kreig, a former fashion model and
ex lady marine, spent years in re-
searching and writing Green Medi-
cine. She has been able to re-create
the excitement of the scientists
themselves in writing their stories.

followed this success by many dis-

Bazar de Beneficencia

El dia 19 de Noviembre

El jueves 19 de noviembre se lle-
vara a efecto, en el Centro de Bene-
ficencia Hebrea de Balboa, el tercer
Bazar Navidefio de Caridad, auspi-
ciado por el Club de Damas de Bal-
boa (Balboa Women's Club). El
p6blico en general queda invitado a
esta feria que se realizara de 10 de
la mafiana a 7 de la noche.
El bazar navidefio fue iniciado en
1961 con el fin de recabar fondos
para los crecientes proyectos de bene-
ficencia p6blica que realize el Balboa
Women's Club. El primer paso fue
la recolecci6n de objetos y artefac-
tos, de lo que se encomend6 al grupo
de Artesania y Arte de la organiza-
ci6n. Esos objetos fueron luego
vendidos en el bazar.
Helen Harrell, quien preside el

bazar este afio, ha laborado incansa-
blemente, contribuyendo tiempo e
iniciativas. Igual cosa han hecho do-
cenas de damas que trabajan en su
hogar y en conjunto para elaborar
muchos de los articulos que serAn
expuestos a la venta.
Entre los articulos figure uri man-
tel de Navidad, hecho por Rose Jones
de encajes, decorado con cuentas y
abalorios. Dora Hanson ensefi6 a sus
compafieras a hacer sombreros y
mufiecas. Mildred Genis y Florence
McConnell ayudaron en todo con en-
tusiasmo. Lee Oltenburg, Coryne
Anderson y Anna Kiernan trabaja-
ron en nuevos proyectos no acome-
tidos anteriormente. Otras tambi6n
laboraron con singular empefio.


Empresas Navieras

Observan Aniversario

Dos empress navieras vinculadas
a Panama y al Canal de Panama por
muchisimos afios, observaran este
afio y el entrante su 1259 aniversario.
Se trata de la Mala Real (Royal Mail
Line), establecida el 26 de septiem-
bre de 1839, 75 aios antes de la aper-
tura del Canal de Panama, y la
Pacific Steam Navigation Co., subsi-
diaria suya, autorizada el 17 de
febrero de 1840.
La Mala Real inglesa (Royal Mail
Steam Packet Co.) fue organizada
para el transport de correo de y
hacia Inglaterra, las Antillas, Norte
y Sur America y otras Areas de ultra-
mar. Se atribuye a James McQueen,
native de Crawford, Lanarkshire,
Escocia, la fundaci6n de la empresa.
La Pacific Steam fue organizada
por el estadounidense William
Wheelwright, quien obtuvo la san-
ci6n Real Inglesa para el servicio

Antes de la apertura del Canal,
los pasajeros con destino a la costa
occidental de America Central y del
Sur llegaban a Col6n a bordo de
naves de la Mala Real inglesa y cru-
zaban el Istmo por el Rio Chagres y
a lomo de mula (hasta establecerse
el Ferrocarril de PanamA).
El viaje transistmico por tierra-rio
y a lomo de mula costaba unos $18
V llevaba 4 dias y sus noches; eso
no incluia el costo de alimentos y
otros gastos incidentales.
El viajero abordaba el barco de la
Pacific Steam en el Pacifico, donde
esa empresa habia instalado talleres,

Tanto la PSNC como la Mala Real

de PanamA a mediados del siglo XIX.
El trAnsito de pasajeros aument6
considerablemente al empezar a fun-
cionar el ferrocarril, pero no tarda-
ron en surgir desacuerdos entire las
parties en relaci6n con la distribuci6n
del dinero de los pasajes de y hacia
Europa por el ferrocarril. Como tar-
dase en llegar a un arreglo, la PSNC

Algunas unidades de la flota de la
PSNC y de la Mala Real sucumbie-
ron en la pasada guerra, pero al ter-
minar las hostilidades, la flota fue
reconstruida. La mayoria de los 32
barcos que actualmente usan el Canal
son de carga y pasajeros, construidos
en la post-guerra y muy veloces. El

rida secci6n va a ser cerrada, en
cada uno de esos almacenes. El
studio es para determinar cuAles
articulos de pasteleria pueden ser
fAcilmente empacados y Ulevados a
las secciones de autoservicio.
Factor decisive en la decision de
cerrar la secci6n de reposteria, en
los almacenes de Balboa y Margarita,
es su proximidad, en cada caso, a
dependencias que permanecen abier-
tas much tiempo. La eliminaci6n
de duplicidad de servicio es una
economic decisive.
Los empleados de las secciones
que van a ser cerradas, serAn insta-
lados en otros trabajos, a media que
las vacantes se vayan produciendo.



El president del organismo, Profesor Juan Hoyte centroo) es felicitado por
Clifton L6pez, el Secretario-Tesorero, mientras que Joshua Mitchell se
muestra muy vocal. La elecci6n se efectu6 el 31 de octubre.

El Lobo Marino

Es Todo un Lobo
Los capitanes que comandan los
barcos que pasan por el Canal no
podrian ser clasificados necesaria-
mente como lobos de mar-por lo
menos no muchos de ellos. Pero a la
mayoria le gusta una mujer bonita
y algunos hasta pueden estar en la
categoria de "mirones de mucha-
chas," especialmente despues de
varias semanas en el mar.
Por ejemplo, el capitAn de un re-
ciente client del Canal, al pedirsele
que sugiriera mejoras del actual ser-
vicio del Canal, recomend6 la cons-
trucci6n de mAs lugares de observa-
ci6n para el pdblico, como el que
estA en las Esclusas de Miraflores.
"Entonces podriamos mirar a las
muchachas cuando pasamos," recalc6.
