Is the New Baby M anatee,...,,,_

A He-atee or a She-atee?.

He thought he saw a mermaid.
Then he thought he saw a baby
Upon closer inspection, however,
Division of Sanitation Foreman Jos6
Morales realized that what he had
seen was a mama(?) manatee-and
the first known offspring of the
originally purchased manatees.
The manatees are located in a
lagoon on the Chagres River above
Gamboa. There now are six mer-
maids ('er, manatees) in the 7-acre
lagoon. These whale-shaped mam-
mals are being checked by the Health
Bureau to see how efficient they are
at removal of aquatic vegetation and
the source of the Mansonia mosquito
at Gamboa. The happy mother, one
of three females, was one of the two
manatees brought from Changuinola,
Bocas del Toro, December 11, 1964.
The event, which occurred some
time last month, caught Acting
Health Director Col. Harry Offutt by
surprise, but he recovered quickly to

follow the only course of action
available-he got out the cigars.
Colonel Offutt then asked the Divi-
sion of Veterinary Medicine to deter-
mine the weight and the sex for
appropriate naming ceremonies. He
then notified John P. Smith, Jr.,

Center Will Resume

Regular Clinic Hours
Beginning Monday, July 12, the
Margarita Community Health Center
will resume its regular clinic hours
of 1 to 5 p.m. The clinic has been on
an 8 a.m. to 12 noon shift due to a
lack of personnel.
The clinic also announced that it
has obtained some measles vaccine.
Anyone seeking such a vaccine for
children between the ages of 15
months and 6 years can get addi-
tional information by calling the
Margarita clinic at 3-3172.

Giant Digger Dwarfs

Kind That Dug Canal

Dwarfing a workman standing
alongside, below is the 250-ton dipper
of the world's largest power shovel at
work- on a strip coal mine in western
Kentucky. The dipper is more than 8
times as large as the largest shovel
used in excavation of the Panama
Canal and it is estimated that it will
remove 44 million yards of over-
burden annually, said to be more than
twice the peak year production of 77
Bucyrus-Erie shovels used in digging
the Canal.
Also made by Bucyrus-Erie, this
behemoth towers as high as a 20-story
building and weighs 18Vz million
pounds-making it the largest mobile
land machine in the world.
It has the weight equivalent of
6,000 average family automobiles, is
90 feet higher than the Statue of
Liberty, 45 feet higher than Niagara
Falls-and just as high as the deck
of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The machine moves on eight
crawler treads, each more than 8 feet

high. Assembly of the machine at
the mine site took place over a 10-
month period and more than 300
railroad cars were necessary to trans-
port components.
Officials of the coal firm, Peabody
Coal Co., plan to operate the shovel
24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
weather permitting. The machine is
equipped with powerful floodlights
for night operations.
A single operator, working in an
air-conditioned cab more than five
stories above ground level, reaches
his perch via an elevator. His control
panel consists of two hand levers and
two foots pedals. He can accelerate
each 250-ton load from a dead stop
to 25 miles per hour in just 8 seconds,
and decelerate from top speed to stop
in 4 seconds through a 400-foot arc.
The lip of the dipper alone weighs
20 tons and is made from a 16-foot-
wide casting, largest ever poured in
the history of the Bucyrus-Erie

former Chief, Division of Sanitation,
and Assistant to the Health Director,
that he had become a grandfather.
Smith, now retired at Johns Islands,
S.C., originated the manatee procure-
ment program for a mosquito control
Control of aquatic growth isn't
solely for esthetic purposes. Man-
sonia mosquitos thrive on the roots
of one type of growth. Large masses
of another type float out and get in
locks operating valves and could be
sucked into the water intakes of
transiting ships and clog condensers.
Health Bureau officials pointed out
that the manatees are protected by
Canal Zone Code and a $100 fine
may be levied on anyone trying to
harm or destroy the manatees.
The manatee is said to be the
origin of many mermaid legends.

New Postal Card

Will Be Issued
A 4-cent ordinary postal card will
be placed on sale at the Cristobal
Post Office August 12.
The stamp imprinted on the 4-cent
card will be green, having as its main
subject a Panama Canal lock, with
a transiting ship. Also shown are a
control house, light standard, and
towing locomotive. The card will be
of white stock and will be manufac-
tured by the Bureau of Printing and
Engraving, Washington, D.C.
Collectors desiring first-day can-
cellations may submit orders to the
Philatelic Agency, Balboa Heights,

Anna gets a point across to the King of Siam, in the scene above, caught by
the camera during a rehearsal of the musical play "The King and I." The
role of Anna Leonowens, the English widow who went to Siam in the 1860's
to act as governess to the King's large brood, is played by Angela Bomford,
of Panama City. Mrs. Bomford has appeared in many Theatre Guild
presentations. Adolfo Arias, Panama diplomat and socialite, enacts the role
of the King of Siam. "The King and I" will open July 27 for an 11-day run.
The presentation is a United Fund activity.

Pacific Civic Council

To Meet Wednesday
The July meeting of the Pacific
Civic Council will be held Wednes-
day, July 14, at 7:30 p.m., in the
Balboa High School ROTC Building.
Ways and means of fund raising
will be discussed during the evening's
business session.

Citizenship Certificates

Bill in Congress Again

A Panama Canal bill to provide for
issuance of certificates of U.S. cit-
izenship in the Canal Zone again has
been introduced in Congress. The
bill has passed the House of Repre-
sentatives twice in earlier sessions but
has never received Senate approval.
Certificates of U.S. citizenship now
are issued only in U.S. regional offices
and district offices of the U.S. Immi-
gration and Naturalization Office.
The New Orleans office is an espe-
cially busy place because that city
is the U.S. port of the Panama
Canal's SS Cristobal, and many
people like to get business out of the
way at the start of home leave vaca-
Hearings are conducted in private,
and it is well to request an appoint-
ment prior to leaving the Isthmus.
For a child born in the Canal Zone
and claiming U.S. citizenship through
the father or both parents, the appli-
cant must supply a birth certificate,
a marriage certificate of the parents,
and, if the applicant's parent or
parents became citizens at birth, the
birth certificate of the parent or
The same basic requirements for
documentation apply to children
born in Panama of U.S. citizen
parents, when the U.S. citizen parent
is employed by the U.S. Government
at the time of the child's birth.
In the case of a child born on
foreign soil, with one U.S. citizen
parent and the other of another cit-

izenship, 10 years' residence in the
United States prior to the child's
birth is a requirement.
Any document in a foreign lan-
guage must be accompanied by an
English translation, the latter con-
taining a certification from the trans-
lator of his competency as a trans-
lator and the accuracy of his transla-
A photostatic copy of original
documents should accompany the
original with the application, if the
sender wishes the original documents
Issuance or making application
for a certificate of U.S. citizenship is
a completely voluntary procedure
but the document is useful in proving
citizenship in lieu of having to dis-
play a birth certificate and the
various supporting documents other-
wise required.
Persons planning to go to the
United States should mail com-
pleted Form N-600, the application
for certificate of U.S. citizenship, to
the appropriate office in the United
States together with documents and
three 2- by 2-inch photographs taken
within 30 days of the date of the
application. Originals of documents
must be in the possession of the
applicant at the time of the interview.
Canal Zone residents who have
filed applications at New Orleans
report they have received utmost
cooperation, with applications from
the Zone apparently being labeled
"special" and given priority.

Willard E. Percy, Assistant Industrial Training Coordinator, is one of only
a few Panama Canal employees to receive quality in-grade increases. Percy,
right, received his award recently from P. T. Green, Industrial Training
Coordinator, for "substantially exceeding the normal requirements of his
position" and for showing "superior knowledge, technical experience, com-
petence and skill in engineering-technical-craft areas." A veteran of more
than 34 years of PanCanal service, Percy also was cited for his effective
teaching on the apprentice, journeyman, and engineering levels.

No Federal Discrimination-L.B.J.

President Johnson recently asked
heads of Federal agencies to com-
municate the following Presidential
statement to all Federal employees
and "to take all appropriate meas-
ures to assure full compliance with
the spirit of the law that governs and
guards us all." The President's state-

I want to make one thing un-
mistakably and indelibly clear to
every department, every agency,
every office and every employee of
the Government of the United States.

The Federal service must never be
either the active or passive ally of

Material intended for publica-
tion in THE SPILLWAY should be
received in the Panama Canal
Press Office not later than Monday
afternoon of the week of publica-
tion. Urgent material can be re-
ceived and processed for use the
same week as late as noon Tues-
day. Mail material to PANAMA
Heights, C.Z.

any who flout the Constitution of the
United States.
Regional custom, local tradition,
personal prejudice or predilection are
no excuse, no justification, no defense
in this regard.
Where there is an office or an
officer of this Government, there must
be equal treatment, equal respect,
equal service-and equal support-for
all American citizens, regardless of
race, or sex, or region, or religion.
Public service is a public trust.
I would call upon every Federal
civilian employee to remember that
he bears a high and solemn trust to
the constitution under which he
serves. If all about him-neighbors,
friends, fellow townsmen, even fam-
ily-falter or fail in respect for the
constitutional rights of others, the
public servant in the service of his
country has a duty to protect, defend
and uphold those rights by work and
The Federal service asks no con-
formity-no uniformity of thought
and no unanimity of vote. But where
constitutional rights are concerned,
the country can ask no more-and
accept no less-than uncompromising
devotion to the Constitution itself.

C.Z. Life in "Good Old Days"

... ... .........

.- ^^^ n

"Those were the good old days!"
It is seldom that the yesterdays
are remembered in cold logic. More
often, time puts a glow on the pleas-
ant peaks. And the bygone valleys of
distress are filled with a wistful haze
that gives us memories that are at
least worthwhile, if not perfect,
reflections of history.
It is refreshing, then, to read an
account of the good old days that
lumps the good with bad and fur-
nishes an accurate glimpse of the
early days in the Canal Zone.
Eugene R. Owens, of Media, Pa.,
remembers when he was a boy
on the Isthmus. He didn't furnish an
exact date, and the Canal Record
editor printed the reminiscence as
Mr. Owens submitted it. For those
who are partial to electricity and
other creature comforts, the good
thing about the "good old days" is
that they are long past. But for a

quick look at a slice of life awhile
back, here's how Mr. Owens remem-
bers it:
"The quaint(?) old French houses
built on stilts on the hillside-the
sound of the rain on the tin roof.
The screened-in porches where we
spent evenings, before the advent of
the clubhouse (YMCA).
Coal Cook Stoves
"The shower stall with its cold
water shower. The coal cook stove,
on which meals were cooked by
wood that was supplied by the Quar-
termaster. The ice box that was kept
supplied by the same benevolent
Q.M. with ice. I say benevolent Q.M.,
because while he was supposed to
send us a bill for the ice, he for some
reason never got around to doing it.
"The oil lamps and candles we
went to bed by, before they got
around to supplying that new source
of light, electricity.

Queen Anne I, the first sovereign
to represent Balboa in the Panama
Carnival, is leaving the Isthmus soon
to make her home in Fort Lauder-
dale, Fla. For years she's worked
incognito as Anne E. Williams, time,
leave and payroll clerk of the Payroll
Branch, Office of the Panama Canal
Miss Williams, who has retired
after 45 years, 4 months, and 17 days'
U.S. Government service, was born
in Philadelphia, Pa.
Her father, Charles F. Williams,
came to the Isthmus in May 1915
and brought his family with him.
He retired in 1939 as Chief Planner
and Estimator of the old Mechanical
Division, and with his wife has
remained on the Isthmus.
Miss Williams started her Panama
Canal service in March 1920, as an
employee in the Property Division
office at the then handsome salary of
$75 a month.
She went to the United States in
1926 and worked for a year in the
U.S. Army Quartermaster Depot,
Philadelphia, Pa., as a clerk-typist.
In May 1927 she returned to the
Canal Zone and employment in the
Accounting Division.
Miss Williams recalls that as the
Canal Zone Queen she rode in the
Carnival parade on a float that had
a marine theme. Her escort was
Neptune and her attendants were
mermaids. All the costumes had been
designed by Miss Williams' mother.

For sports, Miss Williams chose
tennis and golf.
And her hobby? Collecting friends,
says one of her friends. It was that
friend, and not Miss Williams, who

many needy folks she's helped to
get an education or to whom she's
lent a helping hand when one was
-most needed.
Besides her parents, Miss Williams

Some Like It Hot (Part II)

Think of heat as coming to us from
three sources: The sun, industrial
processes, and the human (other
animals) body. Heat is a byproduct
of energy release.
For each square centimeter of us,
I am told, the tropical sun shines 1.5
calories per minute. In Philadelphia
or San Francisco for comparison, in
January it contributes only 0.5
Industrial processes, whether they
be an electric typewriter or a blast
furnace, give off heat as a result of

Heat Injury
energy expense. But basically, we,
ourselves, produce the heat . .
and lose it . that is most im-
portant to us.
Our body energy comes from the
food we eat. Like all other processes
in this world, body movement,
muscle movement, thinking, breath-
ing, all metabolic processes, involve
heat generation. The human, a warm
blooded animal, possesses regulatory
mechanisms to maintain a near uni-
form temperature.
Heat moves to and from our bodies
by radiation, convection, conduction,
and evaporation. The direction of
flow and how our body must react
to keep its steady temperature
depends on just how hot, or cold, the
surroundings are. When either

extreme prevails, the body may fail
and the victim freezes to death or
suffers heat injury, depending upon
the situation.
How you and I respond to heat
rests on our general health, our age,
our food and water intake, and on
the all-important acclimatization. To
which latter subject we will return.
Heat injury includes sunburn,
rashes, exhaustion, cramps, and
stroke. I will brush past the first two
as obvious to all.
Heat exhaustion and cramps are
more common than stroke, for-
tunately. The patient is pale and
moist . these are the signs you
should look for. Put this person in
the shade or a cool place and give
him water with some salt in it:
A teaspoon full of salt to a quart of
water. He should recover quickly.
Heat stroke is the killer! The
patient is perhaps unconscious, but
you will recognize the injury by the
hot, dry, red skin. Cool this man off
at once. Pack the victim in ice if
available or ice cold water. If all you
have on hand is your own sweat, use
it. Call a physician at once. This
man's heat regulatory mechanism
has given up and his temperature is
no longer 98.6. He's going to roast
himself if someone or something
doesn't halt his temperature rise.

28 S&CS Employees Earn

"Outstanding" Citations

Twenty-eight employees of the
Supply and Community Service Bu-
reau have been selected by their
supervisors and their fellow em-
ployees for doing outstanding work.

merit alone. It is this group of em-
ployees and those others who serve
loyally and competently who are the
backbone of this Bureau. The em-
ployees who were recognized receive
no more pay, but do their job more
efficiently and faster, and thereby
more economically. They are in
grades below NM-4 and M-11.

New Postal Card
(Continued from p. 1)
Canal Zone. Remittance to cover
cost must be included with each
order. Orders should plainly indicate
the full name and address for each
post card.
Personal checks and postage
stamps will not be accepted. Re-

Pretty girls were part of the Independence Day parade that drew a crowd of hundreds of persons Monday at
Balboa. This convertible carrying three queens is passing the reviewing stand, where officials from the Panama
Canal, Republic of Panama, and military components saw one of the longest and most colorful parades ever to
march smartly through the Canal Zone. Three Air Force planes flew over the ceremonies in salute and at noon,
there was a 50-gun salute. Skydiving and a horse show preceded the parade and patriotic exercises. Speaker was
Lt. Gov. Harold R. Parfitt. Free trips on the "Las Cruces" rounded out the day.

"The Berlin Wall" by French
journalist Pierre Calante is the story
of the East Berliners who "have
voted with their feet" by fleeing to
the West. Galante describes this
book as "the story of . the little
people of the divided city." The
names of some of those who escaped
have been disguised for the protec-
tion of those left behind in East
Berlin-otherwise Galante assures us
that these accounts are true. Because
of the recent renewed trouble over
access routes to Berlin, this book is
particularly timely.
Ada 'Arris is at it again-this time
Paul Gallico presents her in "Mrs.
'Arris Goes to Parliament." Her
admirers will thoroughly enjoy the
picture of a charlady who inadvert-
ently becomes a member of Parlia-
ment. Gallico carries off this comic
but disastrous situation with masterly
"Winston Churchill: An Intimate
Portrait" by Violet Bonham-Carter
will fascinate historians, Churchill
admirers, and those who enjoy a good
biography. Lady Bonham-Carter
begins her account with her first
meeting with Churchill in 1906 and
concentrates on the next 10 years.
The spirit of this portrait of Chur-
chill in his early public life is
revealed in Lady Bonham-Carter's
comment-that when she met him
she "recognized the light of genius."
Mystery, suspense, and ESP (extra-
sensory perception) make a mixture
to intrigue even the most sophisti-

Crey6 que habia visto una sirena.
En segunda instancia, pens6 que
habia visto una beb6 sirena.
Cuando se acerc6 un poco mis
para asegurarse, Jos6 Morales, Ca-
pataz en la Divisi6n de Sanidad, se
dio cuenta de que lo que habia visto
era una mamA manati, y el primer
reci6n nacido de los manaties que se
compraron hace poco.
Los manaties estAn ubicados en
una laguna del Rio Chagres, arriba
de Gamboa. Ahora mismo, hay site
de ellos en la laguna de 7 acres de
extension. Estos mamiferos, con
forma que recuerda a las ballenas,
son observados muy de cerca por el
Departamento de Salubridad, para
ver qu6 tan buenos son, en su tarea
de comerse la vegetaci6n acuAtica,
que constitute la fuente del mosquito
Mansonia, que abunda en Gamboa.
La feliz madre, una de las tres hem-

bras, es una de dos manaties, com-
prados en Changuinola, Bocas del
Toro, el 24 de diciembre de 1964.
El feliz event, que sucedi6 algiin
dia del mes pasado, tom6 de sorpresa
al Director Interino de Salubridad,
Coronel Harry Offutt, pero 61, ripi-
damente, hizo lo i6nico que se podia
hacer-repartir los cigarros.
Inmediatamente, el Coronel Offutt
pidi6 a la Divisi6n de Veterinaria que
determinaran el peso y el sexo del
beb6 para la solemn ocasi6n de
ponerle un nombre apropiado. Acon-
tinuaci6n, notific6 a John P. Smith,
Jr., antiguo jefe de la Divisi6n de
Sanidad y Asistente del Director de
Salubridad, que acababa de conver-
tirse en abuelo. Smith, ya jubilado,
reside en Johns Island, Carolina del
Sur, y fue quien origin la buisqueda
de manaties para ser usados en el

program experimental para contro-
lar los mosquitos.
El control de la vegetaci6n acuati-
ca, se Ileva a cabo no s6lo con pro-
p6sitos de est6tica. Los mosquitos del
tipo Mansonia, se desarrollan en las
races de cierto tipo de esa vegeta-
ci6n. Grandes masas de vegetaci6n
acuAtica de otro tipo, flotan y llegan
hasta las esclusas, en donde se meten
por las vilvulas y podrian ser absor-
bidas por los tubos de succi6n de los
barcos y dafiarles los condensadores.
Funcionarios de la Direcci6n de
I Salubridad, sefialaron que los mana-
ties estAn protegidos por las Leyes
de la Zona del Canal, y cualquiera
que trate de hacer daflo o destruir
los manaties, puede ser penado con
$100 de multa.
Estos animals han dado origen a
muchas leyendas sobre sirenas.

El lugar esti un poquito mis arriba de Gamboa, en la orilla este del Rio Chagres y la rastra verifica un trabajo
que tiene much que ver con la salud de los habitantes del Istmo y con la operaci6n del Canal. "En este lugar,"
nos dice el Sr. C. S. Howe, Superintendente del Ramo de Operaciones de la Divisi6n de Dragas, "trabajamos en
estrecha cooperaci6n con la Direcci6n de Salubridad, en el orograma de eliminaci6n de la vegetaci6n que ulti-
mamente se ha convertido en serio problema para la navegaci6n del Canal y tambi6n para la salud de los habi-
tantes, por ser tremendous criaderos de mosquitos." La rastra saca del rio miles de toneladas de vegetaci6n flo-
tante, yerbas acuAticas y trozos de madera, a una enorme pila en donde se seca al sol y luego es eliminada.
A veces la pila de desperdicios del rio alcanza 50 pies de altura. Para aquellos amantes de la estadistica. en
1 afio, la rastra saca del rio 23 millones de plants acuAticas; 240,000 pies cibicos de yerba, y 360 aces de
madera flotante.

rios experiments cientificos, se ha
demostrado que a la progresidn arit-
mitica de las copas de bebidas sigue
una progresi6n geomitrica de par-

bebido. A 100 miligramos (dos a
tres vasos) los peligros se sextuplican.
Con cuatro o cinco vasos de cerveza
los peligros son 25 veces superiores.
Los riesgos son formidable, aun-
que los bebedores por regla general
creen, bajo la influencia de un par de
copas, que su percepci6n y reflejos
han aumentado, cuando en realidad
el fen6meno que tiene lugar es el de
