Colonel Parker has been serving as
Canal Zone Lieutenant Governor
since April 8, 1963. He came here
from a 2-year tour of duty with the
Defense Intelligence Agency, Wash-
ington, D.C. No stranger to the
Isthmus, he had been military
assistant to the Governor of the Canal
Zone from 1952 to 1954.
A graduate of the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point in 1940, the
Lieutenant Governor served on the
staffs of both Adm. Chester Nimitz

After leaving the Isthmus in 1954,
he served as deputy district engineer
of the Portland, Oreg., Engineer Dis-
trict, and attended the Army War

nearly 3 years he was then Chief of
the Strategic Studies Group, Office
of the Chief of Engineers, in Wash-

commanding officer of the 36th
Engineer Combat Group in Korea.

face mail arriving in the Canal Zone
from New York aboard the Grace
Liner Santa Magdalena will be
worked by all Canal Zone Post Offices

the Postal Division.
A large quantity of the shipment
is for the Canal Zone and probably
includes the U.S. income tax forms
which local residents have been
expecting the past week.
The shipment is one of the largest
to be received from the United States
since Christmas and represents an
accumulation of surface mail delayed
in New York by the shipping strike.
It is the first surface mail to arrive
from New York since the strike

She studied at the University
Medical School in Vienna and in
Erlangen, Germany, and received her
M.D. degree at the University

1963 was chief of service at this
Dr. Schaeffer was director of

It happened like this: The winner,
Steve Parker, son of the Lieutenant
Governor of the Canal Zone, Col.
David S. Parker, is to get an all
expense 1-week trip to Washington,
D.C., where his tape recorded speech
on the "Challenge of Citizenship,"
will compete with speeches of

Coincidentally, John Jenkins, the
VFW National Commander, came to
the Canal Zone with a party of
dignitaries and called on the Lieu-
tenant Governor, where he met
Steve's speech was played before

Gen. (Retired) James D. Hittle. Also
present was Canal Zone Department
Commander Miller.


Another low record for malaria
incidence was established during
1964, with only three cases of malaria
occurring in three non-U.S. civilian
employees. The previous record was
in 1963, with 0.4 cases per thousand
employees, which was reduced to 0.2
cases per thousand in 1964.
A total of 18 malaria cases were
reported in 1964 compared to 21 in
1963, the Canal Zone Health Bureau
Director reports. The additional
cases were others from the military
services or non-U.S. civilians receiv-
ing treatment at Canal Zone facilities.
It is of interest to note a similar
report found in the Canal Zone
Record Volume 1, page 157, from
Col. William Crawford Gorgas, Chief
Sanitary Officer, who in his 1907
health report for December to the
Acting Chairman, Isthmian Canal
Commission, Culebra, C.Z., said:
"There has been a marked decrease
in malaria during the year. Consider-
ing the deaths caused by disease
among our laboring force, I find that
last December, with a force of
29,000 men, we had 13 deaths from
"malaria; this December with a force
of 45,000 men we had 6 deaths from
The rate was 821 cases per thou-
sand employees in 1906 and 424
cases per thousand in 1907.

New Assistant Director

Assumes Duties at Gorgas

Col. William T. Gaudy, the new
assistant director at Gorgas Hospital,
has had 22 years' active Federal serv-
ice and is as at home in German or
French as in English.
Colonel Gaudy, who came to the
Canal Zone from Walson Army Hos-
pital, Fort Dix, where he was execu-
tive officer, received the Legion of
Merit for "exceptionally meritorious
conduct" before he left Fort Dix.
The award was presented by Maj.
Gen. Charles E. Beauchamp, Fort
Dix commanding general.
The citation commends Colonel
Gaudy for distinguishing himself
while serving in positions of respon-
sibility from July 1953 to November
During this period he "demon-
strated exceptional ability as a
planner, organizer, and medical ad-

ministrator. His professional com-
petence, technical knowledge, re-
sourcefulness, and foresight were
clearly reflected in marked improve-
ments in the organizational structures
and operational efficiency of the
installations in which he served."
Colonel Gaudy, who was born in
New York City, is a 1930 graduate
of Fordham University with a degree
in pharmacy. He entered the U.S.
Army in 1942. During his Army
career he served as executive officer,
Armed Forces Institute of Pathology,
Washington, D.C., Chief of Supply
and Fiscal Branch, Medical Division,
Headquarters U.S. Army, Europe,
and as executive officer, 98th General
Hospital, Munich, Germany.
He is married, and the father of
one daughter, Bethe, who is com-
pleting the school year in the States.

Since the days of Coronel Gorgas,
the reduction and maintenance of a
low incidence of malaria continues
to depend on intensive ground con-
trol of mosquito breeding and the
continual surveillance of Canal Zone
inhabitants for immediate treatment
of infected individuals.
Although malaria cases have been
reduced, there has been no reduction
in the mosquito populations, as
shown by mosquito indices charted
by the Canal Zone Division of Sanita-
tion. Invasions of Anopheles, the
malaria vectors, occur periodically
from uncontrolled areas.
During the rainy season, daily
checks must be made by sanitation
personnel for mosquito breeding in a
wide variety of water bodies retained
in earthen cavities or containers.
Approximately 50 square miles of
area around Canal Zone townsites
and installations are checked regu-
larly, as well as drainages maintained
around perimeters.
Malaria incidence may be low, but
surveillance must be continued to
retain that low incidence, the Health
Director reports. Outdoor activities
at night should be confined to con-
trolled areas, or within screened
quarters when invasions of mosqui-
toes occur in townsites, he advises.
Otherwise, he said, protective cloth-
ing, repellents, and mosquito netting
must be considered, depending upon
the activity.
The three cases of malaria in em-
ployees during 1964 were contracted
in uncontrolled areas. One employee,
the report shows, was fishing at night
on the Chagres River.

Cooperation Asked
During Bridge Work
Maintenance work on Thatcher
Ferry Bridge, under way in the
dry season, occasionally necessitates
closing one traffic lane on the main
span. Signs are posted and traffic
cones indicate the lane that is tem-
porarily out of service.
The motoring public is asked to
cooperate with the Canal's Main-
tenance Division during the dry
season repair work and to drive with
care over Thatcher Ferry Bridge, on
the alert for workmen and traffic

Dick Harrison of Hopkinsville,
Ky., wanted to slow down traffic in
front of his home so he put up a
sign similar to ones used by the State
highway department. It said "Dino-
saur Crossing" and had an illustra-
tion of one of the beasts on it. The
sign produced results. In fact it
brought one motorist to a complete
stop long enough to swipe the sign.

Hoisting Carnival colors was the main business of a band of celebrants in the Canal Zone last week. Carnival
officials and fun seekers from Panama and the Canal Zone made stops at the Tivoli Guest House, where this scene
was recorded, and at Stevens' Circle, Balboa; Fort Amador, Paraiso, and Gamboa. Raising the Carnival flag here
are Ana Cecilia Maruri, Panama's 1963 Carnival Queen, assisted by Frank Hirt, chairman of the Canal Zone
Carnival Committee. Music and dancing filled the agenda at each stop.

"Shrine" Ship Bringing

Top OFFicials of Order

The Imperial Potentate of the
Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles
of the Mystic Shrine for North
America, Imperial Sir O. Carlyle
Brock II, was to arrive at Cristobal
Friday morning aboard the SS Santa
Rosa for a day's visit to the Isthmus.
In fact, the Santa Rosa might be
termed a Shrine ship, for this trip,
for the cruise ship was chartered by
Brock. He will be accompanied by
the Deputy Imperial Potentate, Im-
perial Sir Barney W. Collins, Past
Imperial Sir George E. Stringfellow
and about 240 Shriners and ladies.
The Imperial Potentate was to be
met at dockside by Illustrious Sir
W. Harry Munyon, Potentate of Abou
Saad Temple, accompanied by his
Divan and their ladies.
The official party was scheduled
for a short tour, including a visit to
Miraflores Locks. Luncheon at the

Only 14 Days

Left To Have

Cars Inspected
After today, owners of private
motor vehicles licensed in the Canal
Zone will have only 14 more days in
which to have their cars inspected
before the February 26 deadline.
In 1964 a total of 6,740 privately
owned motor vehicles were inspected
at the Motor Transportation Division
garages in Ancon and Cristobal. This
year about 3,800 have been inspected,
with 43 percent or some 2,900 still
to come in for inspection.
All in all, the response this year
has been better than in 1964,
Motor Transportation Division offi-
cials report.
Hours for inspection, at the Motor
Transportation Division garages in
Ancon and Cristobal, are continuous
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. including the
lunch hour, every day of the regular
workweek, Monday through Friday.
These hours were established in
order to permit owners who work
regular office hours, and others who
work on shift basis, to have their cars
inspected outside the normal work
Owners of private motor vehicles
registered in the Canal Zone must
have in their possession a copy of
the 1965 vehicle registration when
cars are brought in for inspection.
They also are reminded that Mon-
day, February 22, is a holiday and
therefore a non-work day.

Tivoli Guest House, was to be fol-
lowed by shopping and sightseeing
for the ladies, while the men attended
a Ceremonial at the Ancon Masonic
Residing and sojourning Nobles
and their ladies will have an oppor-
tunity to meet the Imperial Potentate,
who is a distinguished Mason and
Shriner, at the Albrook Officers Open
Mess on Friday evening, February 5.
The social hour will commence at
6:30 p.m., dinner will be served at
7:30 p.m., and dancing will follow.
Brock has announced a budget of
more than $27 million has been
adopted for the Shriners Hospitals
for Crippled Children in 1965. This
figure includes building and equip-
ment expenses as well as the oper-
ating expenses for the 20 Shriners
Hospitals for Crippled Children.
Over 5,000 injured and burned chil-
dren pass through these institutions
annually without regard to race,
color, creed, faith, or nationality.

The problem before Charles K. Cross, Management Technician of the
Panama Canal's Administrative Services Division, was to cut enough pieces
of the cake before him to serve the large gathering of well-wishers on his
retirement day. A few hours later he received from Canal Zone Governor
Fleming, a retirement certificate showing 41 years, 2 months with the Canal
organization, plus a Key to the Locks. At his side is Mrs. Della L. Hancock,
Communications Clerk. Cross, familiarly known as "Jiggs," came to the
Isthmus in 1922 and was a post-graduate student at Balboa High School.
Earlier, he had attended the University of Buffalo, N.Y. His first Canal
employment was as a clerk in the Record Bureau in 1924. His wife, Mrs. Mae
Bell Cross, is a former employee of the Engineering and Construction Bureau.

Febrero 5, 1965



Al aproximarse la fecha esperada por todo Panama
cuando subirAn al tinglado del Estadio Juan Dem6s-
tenes Arosemena el campe6n mundial de los pesos
ligeros, Carlos Ortiz, de Puerto Rico, y el idolo de la
afici6n panamefia, el Tigre Colonense, Ismael Laguna,
sube de grado la expectaci6n imperante en todos los
circulos del deported.
El Rey de los Pesos Ligeros arrib6 al Istmo proce-
dente de Miami, Florida, el martes en la noche, siendo
recibido calurosamente en Tocumen por mas del
miller de fanaticos que le dispensaron acogedora bien-
venida. Su contrincante, Laguna, pas6 a saludar a su
rival del sAbado 13 en el Hotel Internacional, donde se
hospeda el puertorriquefio. Ambos pigiles departieron

Anchos sectors de opinion comentan favorable-
mente el hecho de que el Monarca ligero es el inico
que ha accedido a darle al pugilista local una oportu-
nidad de disputar in cetro mundial, cosa que decli-
naron hacer el campe6n gallo, Eder Jofre, y el destro-
nado rey de los pesos plumas, Ultiminio Ramos.
"El cinturdn mundial se quedard en Panamd,"
afirm6 al conocido comentarista deportivo, Tommy
Cupas, el aspirante a la corona Ismael Laguna en
entrevista exclusive. Estas palabras han colmado de
fe a sus simpatizantes quienes ni por un instant han
dudado que el idolo panamefio logre lucir sobre sus
sienes una corona mundial, tal como lo hiciera el
inolvidable Al Brown.

Las personas que han logrado asistir a los entrena-
mientos del boricua, sin embargo, si han tenido que
admitir que el campe6n es todo un campe6n, en su
destreza, su resistencia, la potencia de sus pufios y
la fortaleza de su coraz6n.
Todo ello ha motivado que las entradas para este
primer encuentro por un campeonato mundial que se
dispute en Panama se vayan agotando en forma ver-
tiginosa al punto que se estA hacienda dificil lograrlas.
Conviene recorder a los fanAticos de la Zona del
Canal que pueden dirigirse a Tom6s A. Cupas, en la
Oficina de Informaci6n del Canal de Panama, oficina

comportarse al comparecer ante un
funcionario examinador, el lunes 19
de los corrientes se realizaron various
ensayos sobre la manera de condu-
cirse durante esas entrevistas.
La primera clase correspondi6 dic-
tarla al Coordinador de Relaciones de
las Comunidades Latinoamericanas,
de la Zona del Canal, Sr. Sylvester
Callender, en el aula de studio de la
Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso, a las
9 de la mariana. El Sr. Callender
atendi6 a los aspirantes a cargos de
oficinista y vendedores, indic6ndoles
la forma c6mo deben de presentarse

Despu6s de recibir a un aspirante

errors en que habia incurrido, ora

de responder a las preguntas que se
le formulaban, el haber fumado o

una impresi6n desfavorable del aspi-
rante al empleo.
En la tarde del mismo dia fue el
Subjefe del Centro de Servicios Co-
munales de Paraiso, Lancelot Llewel-
lyn, quien se encarg6 de adiestrar a
los aspirantes a empleos en la forma
