Response To Appeal

Helps Reduce Load

Does it do any good to turn off
lights when they're not being used?
Definitely, says J. Bartley Smith,
electrical engineer of the Panama
Canal's Electrical Division.
Cooperation of Panama Canal em-
ployees and military personnel in the
current power conservation program
has resulted, so far this year, in about
a 3-percent saving, or an estimated
2,000 kilowatts of peakload saved. In
other words, without this power
saving cooperation, the peakload
would have gone up that many kilo-
The peakload in the Canal Zone
now is approaching 73,000 kilowatts
in the middle of the day. The power
load has been gradually and steadily
creeping up since approximately
1959, when the turn-of-the-century
25-cycle system was converted to a
modern 60-cycle system. With the

John F. Kennedy
Film Benefit Set
For Wednesday
"John F. Kennedy: Years of Light-
ening, Day of Drums," a film hailed
in major world capitals as "the best
documentary ever made," will be
premiered in Panama City at a benefit
performance for the Ciudad del Nifio
under the auspices of the American
The showing will be at the Bella
Vista Theater at 8:30 p.m. Wednes-
day, March 10. Tickets are being
distributed by members of the Amer-
ican Society. They also may be ob-
tained by calling Joseph O'Connell,
committee chairman for the function,
at 3-0140 (Panama) during working
The full-length documentary film
tells the story of the 2 years and 10
months of John F. Kennedy's sud-
denly terminated service as President
of the United States. It was produced
by George Stephens, Jr. The Spanish
version was narrated by Ricardo
Montalban but the original voice of
President Kennedy, one of the great
attractions of the film, is translated
by means of subtitles.
Arrangements for the Panama
premier of the film were made by
the American Society with Paramount
International, S.A., distributors of
the film in the Republic of Panama.

From 10 to 2
It's Up to You
For the remainder of the dry
season, especially, it would be most
helpful if residents would concen-
trate on reducing power demands
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is the
peak demand period.
Housewives can help by sched-
uling operation of washing ma-
chines, dryers, vacuum cleaners,
and other household appliances,
when possible, either before or
after the 10 a.m.-2 p.m. period.
"From 10 to 2 it's up to you." And
YOU can assist greatly

installation of standard comfort and
convenience electrical appliances,
and especially with increased instal-
lation of air conditioners in homes
and public buildings, the power load
increase has been from 10 to 12
percent a year.
The present voluntary conservation
program sponsored by the Electrical
Division, with the cooperation of all
divisions and bureaus in the Panama
Canal organization and the military
services, is aimed at paring electrical
power use to a minimum. It is hoped
that the power consumers' coopera-
tion will continue until relief is avail-
able, early in 1966, when the new
generating unit at the Miraflores
Power Station will be ready.
Until then, the voluntary conserva-
tion program will continue. Suggested
measures are: Turn off all entry and
hallway lights; turn off all room lights
during lunch periods and when
closing for the day; turn off all room-
type air conditioners during lunch
period and at closing time; and
survey work space, to be sure areas
not being used are not lighted.

Checking in after shore leave in Panama are a group of University of the
Seven Seas students. Miss Kathy Hughes, a second year student, does the
checking and seems to be enjoying her work.

"Floating University"

Makes Stop at Isthmus

Some college students far inland
are all at sea. But not the 90 or more
who arrived at Balboa recently aboard
the Europe-Canada liner Seven Seas.
The young men and women were
on their way from the U.S. west
coast to Europe as part of the Uni-
versity of the Seven Seas program
which offers an education under the
most pleasant circumstances. And
they all had their feet on the ground-
or on the deck as the case might be.
With the whole world as their
campus, the Seven Seas University
students attend classes while the ship
is at sea and make field trips while
the ship is in port.
They spent several hours on the
Isthmus seeing the sights on the
Pacific side and then made an on-the-
spot investigation of the working of
the Panama Canal while the vessel
made its northbound transit.

classes are conducted daily in such
liberal arts subjects as languages,
literature, archaeology, music, world
history, geography, and some science.
There also are courses in swimming,
dancing, and fencing.
The semester started February 3
in San Diego, Calif., and will con-
tinue until June. Students will leave
the ship in England, tour France,
Spain, and central Europe and part
of Russia. They will return home by
various routes. Last semester, the
Seven Seas took students on a 110-
day cruise around the world starting
at New York and touching at the
Mediterranean ports, Suez, and the
Far East. It ended in San Francisco.
The unusual education plan was
dreamed up by a group of business-

attracted wide attention.

PM Locks


Repairs to the floor of the west lane
of Pedro Miguel locks should be
completed by March 15 if work con-
tinues at the present pace, according
to the Maintenance Division.
Completion of the special project
is expected to coincide with comple-
tion of the regularly scheduled over-
haul which is being carried on in the
west lane by Locks Division forces.
The repair involves the replace-
ment of approximately 11,000 square
feet of concrete slab which was found
buckled when the water in the west
lane locks chamber was being drained
in preparation for overhaul. In addi-
tion to placing of concrete slabs on
the locks floor, repairs are being made
to the lateral culverts. Inspection of
the centerwall culverts and overhaul
was made last week. They have been
returned to operation.
Following completion of the work
in the west lane of Pedro Miguel,
overhaul work will start on the east
lane. This project is scheduled for.
completion within 4 weeks, with
Pedro Miguel to be back in full
operation by mid-April.
Locks Division overhaul forces
will return to Miraflores locks after
work is completed at Pedro Miguel.
At this time it is expected that modifi-
cations will be completed on the
newly designed lock repair cofferdam
and the miter gates being overhauled
in Balboa drydock can be reinstalled.

Meet Herman: A Mule Without Gears, Lines

Herman is a mule.
But even though he lives within
braving distance of Catun Locks, he
has nothing to do with the Panama
Canal or the Panama Canal mules.
In fact, if Herman could talk, he
would speak Spanish. And if his
loyalty were questioned, it probably
would be given to the U.S. Army.
Herman has been prejudiced ever
since last November, when he joined
the U.S. Army as the official Army
mascot at the local version of the
Army-Navy football game. And he
has a letter of commendation from the
Commander of the U.S. Army Forces
Southern Command to prove it.
He also has some battle scars
acquired last year when he got in-
volved with U.S. Army maneuvers on
the Atlantic side. Reports are, how-
ever, that he acquitted himself with
little honor and fled from the scene
of action.
Herman is owned-or at least comes
under the protection of-James C.
Cross, a former Indiana farm boy
who knows mules pretty well.

Cross, now manager of the Gatun
Retail Store, acquired Herman about
:3 years ago in Pifia, an Atlantic side
village where he lived with his
Peruvian father and Panamanian
mother. IIe was a young mule at the
time and responded readily to train-
ing and the soft life provided at the
Catun Riding Stables.
Cross savs that in spite of language
difficulties, he has learned to be a
better than average saddle and pack
animal and is expert with a cart.
When hitched to a home-made
sulky, Herman steps out smartly and
can maintain a running trot for
several miles. When saddled, he
prances, flaps his ears and shows off
several gaits.
Herman really comes into his own
when he goes on the long camping
and exploration trips which are tht
weekend and vacation hobby of the
Cross family. Mr. and Mrs. Cross
have taken their horses on trips
through much of the Gatun Lake
area and traveled as far as El Valle
and Santiago. On these jaunts, they
take Herman as a pack mule. When

The cowboy hat worn by James Cross seems to make Herman feel more
at home on the range.

Red Cross Adopts New Method

For Recruitment of Volunteers

The Canal Zone Chapter of the
American Red Cross conducted a Red
Cross basic training course at the
Panama Canal Training Center re-
cently. Fifteen of the 86 volunteers
receiving the training were from the
Atlantic side and 37 were recruited
from Paraiso High School.
All volunteers serve in Gorgas Hos-
pital, Coco Solo Hospital, Albrook
Dispensary, and at Howard Air Force
Base. A recognition ceremony will be
held and special awards will be given
to the volunteers in late March.
To meet the ever-growing needs of
the communities that have grown and
changed, the American National Red
Cross has adopted new methods
geared to an era of change. So, too,
the Office of Volunteers has had to
keep pace and do what needs to be
done in the best possible way.
This group of volunteers is part of
the new plan adopted by the Canal
Zone Chapter of the American Red
Cross that calls for recruiting volun-
teers to do whatever specific jobs
need to be done, rather than recruit-
ing for membership in one of the
supporting services. Under the new
plan, men, women, and young people
are recruited to assist with nursing
care or casework, to be receptionists
or typists, to drive, to assist with
hospital recreation, etc.
The recent basic training consisted
of 6 hours' training in three sessions.
Mrs. D. J. Paolucci served as leader
for each session. During the first
session, "Introduction to The Red
Cross," L. Vaughn Snoderly, director
of operations, American Red Cross,
Caribbean Area, discussed the his-
tory, basic concepts and organization
of the Red Cross. Judge Guthrie F.
Crowe, chairman, Canal Zone Chap-
ter, American Red Cross, gave the
introduction to the local chapter per-
sonnel and program. A film, "Symbol
of Humanity," was shown.
During the second session, "The
Meaning of Volunteer Service," Mrs.
Arthur Chassaignac, chairman, Office
of Volunteers (Atlantic office), spoke
on "Volunteers' Work in Organiza-
tions." Mrs. A. T. Logan, volunteer,
spoke on "What Is an Organization?"
Mrs. T. F. Harrigan and Mrs. J. T.
DeCamp, volunteers, spoke on rela-
tionships and responsibilities. Class

exercise was discussed by volunteer
Mrs. W. F. Robinson, and Mrs. W. B.
Carlton, Jr., also a volunteer, spoke
on "Values of Volunteering."
In the third session, "Working
With Other People" was discussed by
Ellis L. Fawcett, Supervisor of In-
struction, Latin American Schools.
The new plan adopted by the Canal
Zone Chapter in December 1964,
besides providing basic training for
volunteers, also provides for whatever
job skills training is needed for the
specific duties the volunteer is to per-
form, with additional training as new
duties or greater responsibilities are
All new volunteers will wear the
same uniform, all will receive the
same basic course certificate, and all
will have the same designation-"Red

Cross Volunteer." Volunteers will not
be recruited under the old categories
such as Gray Lady, arts and skills,
social welfare aide, staff aide or Vol-
unteer nurse's aide. However, volun-
teers who in the past have trained for
those duties will continue to serve in
those services.
Updating the Office of Volunteers
will provide a greater variety of serv-
ices without being concerned as to
whether they fit into this or that
category. Volunteers can be utilized
where they are needed and qualified
to serve without being concerned
about the job fitting into one service
or another. Responsibility for the
program in a particular setting is
vested in one person (a unit chair-
man ) instead of being divided among
several supporting service chairmen.

A spokesman for the T. & T. rep-
resentatives noted that as many of

stad, manager, as stating that his team

Some Highway Signs

Regulate, Some Warn
Highway signs, in accordance with
accepted standards, come under two
Regulatory signs are those signs
which give notice of regulations
which are punishable as an infrac-
tion, violation, or misdemeanor. These
signs use black letters on a white
background. A speed limit sign is a
sample of this type.
Warning signs are signs used to
call attention to conditions that are
potentially hazardous. These signs
use black letters on a yellow back-
ground. A 30 m.p.h. sign used in

does not make it mandatory.

Cricketers Proud

Of Both Records,

Long Tradition

Cricket anyone?
Isthmians who follow the fortunes
of the various local baseball and
basketball teams, golf stars, and foot-
ball heroes, may not know that there
is another group of ardent sportsmen
on the Isthmus who are dedicated to
the ancient and venerable English
game of cricket.
These sportsmen, most of whom
put in 5 full days' work during the
week for the Panama Canal, can be
found almost any Sunday during the
dry season playing a professional ver-
sion of the game that made the
playing fields of Eton famous.
Following the strict rules of cricket,
the games begin about 12:30 p.m.
and stop promptly at 6 p.m. The
players are members of the Isthmian
Cricket League, composed of 6 clubs
or teams of 11 men each-3 from the
Atlantic side and 3 from the Pacific.
Right now the teams with the top
scores for the season are the Kent CC
from the Pacific side and the Excel-
sior CC from the Atlantic.
Members of the local cricket clubs
are quick to challenge any person
who might insinuate that cricket is
a sissy game. It not only is fast and
exciting, but at times can be down-
right dangerous, they say.
Most of the Isthmian cricket
players are sons and grandsons of
the Canal employees who came here
from the West Indies during con-
struction days and who learned the
fine points of the game from the
English colonists.
Often the local teams are joined by
guest players who have learned the
game in England or who are visitors
here from British commonwealth
countries. Occasionally they meet a
visiting team from a British ship. The
Isthmian cricket players usually give
the challengers a run for their money
and at times a good trouncing.

Men and women of the Canal
organization who retired last month,
whose combined service totals over
seven centuries, received the con-
gratulations of Cov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., Lt. Gov. David S. Parker,
and Panama Canal bureau directors
who attended the February retire-
ment ceremony in the Board Room
of the Administration Building,
Balboa Heights.
Two of those who retired in Feb-
ruare had more than 40 years' Canal
service and Governor Fleming, as is
his custom, presented each a key to
the locks. William Ifill, stockman in

the Supply Division on the Atlantic
side, senior in servcie, had been with
the Canal organization 42 years, 1
month, 14 days. Ivanhoe C. Tovaris,
leader bell captain at the Tivoli Guest
House, was second with 40 years, 5
months, 12 days' service.
Alejandro Ramboa, chauffeur, of
the Motor Transportation Division on
the Pacific side, received congratula-
tions on his retirement from Governor
Fleming and from Lieutenant Gov-
ernor Parker, for he had been
chauffeur for both. In answer to a
query by Governor Fleming, Ramboa,
said he had started work with the
Panama Canal organization as a "boy"
at 5 cents an hour.
Governor Fleming related the story
of the promotion of boys "A" to boys
"B" with an increase in pay to 7 cents
an hour, back in 1909-10, and the
subsequent review and retraction of
the pay increase, which could only
be given with the approval of Colonel
Goethals and the chief of the division.
"Did you get your raise back?" asked
Governor Fleming. Ramboa happily
answered in the affirmative.

ruary, with their positions, places of

La carga maxima en la Zona del

Torneo de Softball

En Gamboa el Dia 20
La compania de aviaci6n Avianca
patrocinarA el 159 Torneo Anual de
Softball por Invitaci6n de Gamboa,
el cual se IlevarA a cabo el 20 de
marzo de 1965.
Este torneo de todo un dia tendra
como participants a los mejores
equipos de la Liga de Softball del
Pacifico, de la Liga de Softball del
*AtlAntico y de las distintas ramas
Avianca donara los trofeos a los
equipos que finalicen en los tres pri-
meros puestos, lo mismo que 17 tro-
feos individuals para los miembros
del equipo ganador. El Consejo Ci-
vico de Gamboa suministrara nueva-
mente los refrescos y comida, a pre-
cios m6dicos, para jugadores, sus
familiares y fanAticos.

talaci6n de nuevos aparatos el6ctri-
cos, especialmente de aire acondi-
cionado, en residencias y edificios
p6blicos, el aumento de carga ha sido
de un 10 a un 12 por ciento cada afio.
El present program de conserva-
ci6n voluntaria de energia, patroci-
nado por la Divisi6n de Electricidad,
con la cooperaci6n de todas las direc-
ciones y divisions del Canal de Pa-
namA y los servicios militares, esta
dirigido a conseguir un uso minimo
de electricidad. Se espera que la
cooperaci6n de los consumidores con-
tinuarA hasta principios de 1966,
cuando la nueva unidad generadora
que se estA instalando en la Planta de
Miraflores est6 lista.
Hasta entonces continuarA el pre-
sente program de conservaci6n
Las medidas que se sugieren son
las siguientes: Apague las luces de
entradas y corredores; apague las
luces de los cuartos a la hora del
almuerzo y a la salida del trabajo;
apague las unidades de aire acondi-
cionado en todos los cuartos durante
el almuerzo y al terminar el trabajo;
por fin, inspeccione todas las Areas
donde usted trabaja, a fin de que no
haya luces encendidas en lugares que
no se esten usando.

Para el 15 del present se espera
que este concluida la reparaci6n de
la hilera occidental de las Esclusas

Curso de Entrenamiento Basico

Dirigio la Cruz Roja Americana




La Cruz Roja Americana, capitulo
de la Zona del Canal, dirigi6 un curso
de entrenamiento basico sobre la Cruz
Roja, en el Centro de Entrenamiento
del Canal de Panamai, recientemen-
te. Un total de 15 de los 86 volunta-
rios que recibieron entrenamiento
fueron del sector Atlantico, mientras
que 37 fueron reclutados de la Escue-
la Secundaria de Paraiso.
Todos los voluntarios sirven en el
Hospital Gorgas, el Hospital de Coco
Solo, el Dispensario de Albrook, y en
la Base ABrea de Howard. Habri una
ceremonia de reconocimiento, y se
darA a los voluntarios premios espe-
ciales a fines de marzo.
Para conocer las siempre crecientes
necesidades de las comunidades que
han crecido y cambiado, la Cruz Roja
Nacional Americana ha adoptado
nuevos m6todos en relaci6n a una era
de cambio. Asi tambi6n la Oficina de
Voluntarios ha tenido que mantener
el paso y hacer lo que se necesita en
la mejor manera paosible.
Este grupo de voluntarios es parte
de un nuevo plan adoptado por la
Cruz Roja Americana, capitulo de la
Zona del Canal cuyo prop6sito es re-
clutar voluntarios para hacer cuales-
quiera trabajos especificos que se ne-
cesiten en vez de reclutar miembros
en uno de los servicios complemen-
tarios. Bajo el nuevo plan, hombres,
mujeres y j6venes son reclutados para
ayudar con cuidado de crianza o la-
bores caseras; ser recepcionistas o
mecan6grafos; para manejar; para
ayudar en las diversiones en los hos-
pitales, etc.

cett, Director de las Escuelas Latino-
americanas, disert6 sobre "El Trabajo
con Otras Personas."
El nuevo plan adoptado por el ca-
pitulo de la Zona del Canal en di-
ciembre de 1964, ademAs de proveer
el entrenamiento bAsico para los vo-
luntarios, tambien provee el entrena-
miento que es necesario para cual-
quier trabajo de destreza, ya que los
deberes del voluntario son desempe-
fiar con entrenamiento adicional, nue-
vos deberes o mayores responsabili-
Todos los voluntarios usarin el
mismo uniform; todos recibirAn el
mismo certificado del curso bAsico; y
todos seran designados de igual ma-
nera "Voluntarios de la Cruz Roja."
Los voluntarios no seran reclutados
bajo las antiguas categories tales
como Dama Gris, arte y destreza,
ayudante social, ayudante de grupo,
o ayudante voluntario de enfermera.
Sea como fuere, los voluntarios quie-
nes en el pasado han sido entrenados
para estas labores continuarin pres-
tando esos servicios.
Poni6ndose al dia, la Oficina de
Voluntarios proveerA una gran canti-
dad de servicios, desinteresindose
acerca de si ellos encajan en esta u
otra categoria. Los voluntarios pue-
den ser utilizados donde ellos sean
necesitados y calificados para servir,
desentendi6ndose acerca de si el tra-
bajo se ajusta o no de un servicio a
otro. La responsabilidad del progra-
ma en un aspect particular recae
sobre una persona (un president de
unidad), en vez de estar dividida
entire various presidents de servicios
