Capt. Sergeant

Named Balboa

Port Captain
Capt. Richard S. Sergeant has been
appointed Port Captain, Balboa, and
member, Board of Local Inspectors,
Capt. M. J. Prince, USN, Marine
Bureau Director, has announced.
Captain Sergeant fills the vacancy
left by the retirement last December
of Capt. Elmer G. Abbott, the first
civilian to be appointed Port Cap-
tain, Balboa, in the history of the
Canal, who now is in St. Petersburg,
Until Captain Sergeant's appoint-
ment, Capt. C. E. Briggs, Jr., USN,
Chief, Navigation Division had also
acted as Port Captain, Balboa. Now
he will concentrate on wearing but
one hat, as Navigation Division
The life story of the new Port
Captain, Balboa, is that of a "local
boy makes good." He was born in
the Canal Zone. His father, W. R.
Sergeant, was with the Panama
Canal Commissary Division.
He was graduated from Cristobal
High School and attended and was
graduated from New York State Mer-
chant Marine Academy with a third
mate's license. Then he went to sea
for several years until he received his
master's license.
Captain Sergeant's goal was to be
a Panama Canal Pilot, and at that
time an aspiring pilot started as a
dock foreman-pilot material. He
worked up as towboat master and
then became a Panama Canal pilot,
a position he held for 20 years. Then
came the promotion to Assistant and
Senior Assistant Port Captain and
now Port Captain, Balboa.
Captain Sergeant is married and
the father of two daughters, Carol,
who is married, and Kaye, a student
at Lake Forest College where she is
majoring in accounting. At present
she is a summer student assistant in
the Panama Comptroller's Office.

What's GoingWHERE?

"The Gatun Locks is just going through the Gatun Locks!" an excited
voice shouted into the telephone.
Then the caller calmed down and added, "and the Gatun Locks already
has gone through Miraflores Locks and Pedro Miguel Locks."
The whole thing came into proper perspective when it was learned that
the reference was to the SS Gatun Locks, a Panama-flag tanker of 13,025
gross tons that transited north in ballast. The vessel measured 560 by
74 feet and was en route from Tacoma, Wash., to Aruba. There, according
to her local agents, Panama Transport Co., she may load for Jacksonville
and then go on to Europe.
"Where did the name come from?" was a question asked frequently
as the vessel went through the Canal. Well, fcr one thing, the company
that owns the ship is known as Gatun Naviera Panamefia.
The SS Gatun Locks previously transited the Panama Canal south in
May 1964.

Notice to All Dogs, Cats:

It's Registration Time Again

Now is the time for all Canal Zone
dogs and cats to be registered. Regis-
tration requires proof of inocula-
tion against rabies. Moreover, every
person in the Canal Zone who owns,
keeps, or has custody of a dog or cat
that is 4 months of age or older must
have it inoculated against rabies.
Summed up, it means that people
who reside on the Pacific side of the
Isthmus have 10 more days, and
those on the Atlantic side have but
2 more days during which vaccina-
tions will be performed. By the last
day of July, each and every cat and
dog in the Zone is expected to be
wearing one of the shiny new tri-
angular 1965 license tags.
Dogs are vaccinated every 3 years,
but must have a new license each
year. Any dog registered since April 1
of this year, and whose rabies vacci-
nation certificate has at least 6
months until expiration, need not be
registered until next year. Dog
owners must present the most recent
rabies vaccination with the applica-
tion for a new license.
Cats must be vaccinated each year

Castles Going

To White House

Education Confab
Francis A. Castles, Superintendent
of the Canal Zone Division of
Schools, will leave Sunday for Wash-
ington, D.C., to attend the White
House Conference on Education
July 20-21.
More than 500 leading educators,
Government officials, and representa-
tives of business and labor are
expected to attend.
The conference will be opened by
President Lyndon B. Johnson. Vice-
president Humphrey will speak the
second day.

and special tags are issued them.
Rabies vaccination for licensing is
given free of charge, but the fee for
the license and tag is $2 for either
dog or cat. The vaccination fee for
dogs and cats whose owners reside
on military reservations is $2, and the
license tags are issued free of charge
at the military pass offices.
Vaccinations may be obtained at
the Corozal Animal Clinic on the
Pacific side, and at. the Northern
Area Sanitation Office on the Atlan-
tic side. Vaccinations are given only
on prior appointment by telephoning
Balboa 2883 or Cristobal 2576.
The hours for rabies vaccination
at Corozal are from 11 a.m. to 12
noon Mondays, Wednesdays and
Friday, and Monday through Friday
from 1 to 5 p.m.
Vaccinations are performed on the
Atlantic side on Mondays only
between 9 and 10 a.m.

Chagres Welcome Sight

After Mississippi Mud

Five of the seven Panama Canal
Explorer Scouts who, with their
adviser, George Folger, traveled
down the Mississippi River to New
Orleans by canoe, traveled back to
their Isthmian homes on the SS Cris-
tobal, enjoying the luxury of showers
and good meals.
The 1,570-mile trip down the Mis-
sissippi River was made in three
fiberglass canoes, two purchased for
the Explorer Scouts by the American
Legion here.
That's really how the whole idea
of the trip started. The American
Legion Post donated two of the boats
and then a check was made on ship-
ping expense. The canoes were pur-
chased from a Minnesota company
and someone jokingly remarked, after
looking at the shipping cost figure,
"Why don't you boys take the
boats down the Mississippi to New
George Folger, transmission lines-
man for the Panama Canal organiza-
tion, offered to act as adviser to the
Canal Zone Explorer Scouts on the
trip. He is still in the United States,
attending an Elks' convention.
Those who returned on the SS Cris-
tobal are Wayne Folger, Ron Farns-
worth, Ed Mulroy, Monty Trim, and
Fred Fox. Bob Daniel remained in
the States to attend school, and
Mario Calleja is spending the school
vacation in the States.

Warm welcomes were given the

Family Prayer

To Be Stressed
Some of the leading clergymen in
the Canal Zone, including Bishop
R. Heber Gooden, the Reverend
C. David Zollars, Rabbi Nathan Wit-
kin, the Reverend W. H. Beeby, and
Father Harold Skidmore, met with
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., this week
to obtain his support and to discuss
means of encouraging families in the
custom of family prayer.
The slogan being adopted for the
family prayer campaign is "The
family that prays together stays
Some families are setting aside a
regular time when the whole family
is present-at breakfast, supper, or at
any other time-for special devotions.
Others read a few verses from the
Bible or some devotional book, fol-
lowed by a brief prayer praising God,
thanking him for his goodness, or
praying on behalf of family, friends,
and country.

Sidewalk Surfing a New Challenge on Local Scene

At the outset, only manufacturers
of skateboards were particularly in-
terested in how good sales were. In-
creasing popularity of sidewalk sur-
fing, however, has made the subject
a matter of concern also to parents,
safety officials, police, and doctors.
There has been an increasing num-
ber of skateboarders, including some
adults, barreling down sidewalks,
driveways, and streets. There have
been a number of fractures and other
injuries recently in the Canal Zone
due to accidents while skateboarding.
In several cases, children have either
jumped or fallen off skateboards and

the skateboards have continued on,
under cars and into traffic lanes.
The National Safety Council and
safety officials here believe the skate-
board fad can be handled safely if
some basic safety rules are observed:
Skateboards should not be used on
public streets or driveways that in-
cline into streets, but only on des-
ignated areas such as playgrounds
and noncongested sidewalks (where
not prohibited). The surface should
be free of large bumps and cracks
that could cause spills.
A sidewalk surfer's shoes should
have nonslip soles like those on

The beginner should be aware of
the speed potential and the hazard
of falling and should not try maneu-
vers beyond his skill.
A surfer should always emphasize
control, not speed, and should follow
the dictum: "See and be seen."
The board should be examined
periodically for mechanical defects.
A child who is unwilling, or not
old enough, to apply these rules
should not be permitted to use skate-
For the benefit of the uninitiated,
a skateboard or sidewalk surfer is a
tapered wooden board about 2 feet
long and 5 inches wide, with roller

skate wheels attached to the bottom.
The object is to stay on the board for
a zooming ride. If you're good
enough, you may weave in, out, and
around obstacles on a slalom run-all
of which looks like great fun but is
causing doctors considerable worry.
A youngster balancing precariously
on the board may reach speeds up to
30 miles per hour! Since the board
has neither a steering mechanism
(you tilt to steer) nor brakes, a rider
must be highly skilled to control it.
If you loose balance, there's nothing
to grab; the board shoots out from
under you. If you want to stop,
there's only one way-by jumping off,

which can cause severe injuries at
high speeds.
Warren H. Smith, Panama Canal
Safety Branch Chief, reports that a
rash of skateboard accidents has
shown up. A west coast naval hos-
pital reported an average of one
skateboarding admitted every day
with fractures-90 percent of them
to the ankle or wrist. Collisions with
cars and people also are a hazard.
At least two insurance companies
have issued warnings to their auto-
mobile policyholders to keep a sharp
alert for skateboarders as a "new
traffic menace."

(EDITOR's NOTE: This is the
first of two articles summarizing
an article by Robert H. Stewart,
Panama Canal geologist, pre-
pared for inclusion in the Ency-
clopedia of Earth Sciences, pub-
lished in New York City.)

Panama is interesting from a geo-
logical point of view because it i's
part of one of the two narrow necks
of land which connect continental
land masses. It lies at the south-
eastern end of the large land body
called Central America and com-
pletes the land bridge between North
and South America.
The only other comparable area
is the strip of land at the north end
of the Red Sea which connects Asia
and Africa.
Several geologic studies have been
made of Panama in connection with
the study of possible sea-level canal
routes. The Republic of Panama also
is attempting to make a natural
resources study to determine what
mineral resources are available in the
country and the best way to develop
The geologic history of the Isthmus
of Panama begins in Pretertiary time.
The exact period is unknown. The
Pretertiary rocks (at least 75 million
years old) are thought to have been
formed in the middle or early Cre-
taceous time (75 to 140 million years
ago), if not earlier.
The Isthmus of Panama, during
the period from middle to upper
Cretaceous times, appears to have
been part of a land mass which was
above water. Intensive volcanism
occurred in eastern Panama in the
late middle Eocene. In late middle
to upper Eocene time, the Bayano-

Chucunaqui-Tuira Ceosyncline and
the Bolivar Ceosyncline began to
form and the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans joined. The islands of Preter-
tiary rocks which were remnants of
the earlier land mass remained above
The Oligocene period was ushered
in by an outburst of volcanic activity
that continued into lower Miocene
times. At this time the land mass of
Panama apparently was connected to
the land mass of North America, as
indicated by a new find of lower
Miocene vertebrate fossils on the
banks of the Panama Canal.
Panama was still separated from
South America by the deep Bolivar
Geosyncline to the east through
which the Atlantic and Pacific marine
fauna intermixed; at the same time
the vertebrates in South America
were effectively prevented from
entering Panama.
By late Pliocene time, structional
activity raised the entire isthmus
above sea level where it has remained
until the present. This made it pos-
sible for the vertebrates from both
continents to mingle.
In the Pleistocene, at the time of
the great ice age, when the north
continents were covered with gla-
ciers, the flora and fauna were driven
south by the harsh climate and the
sea level in Panama was as much as
150 feet lower than at present.
As the ice melted at the end of
the Pleistocene age, the sea level on
both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts
rose at an equal rate. This marks the
last rise in sea level. There is some
slight evidence that the sea level may
have been as much as 5 feet higher
on the Atlantic coast than at present.



On the Isthmus

By Donald Robinson

Some Like It Hot (Part III)

We may wonder why we hear of Iowa farmers suffering heat stroke
frequently) and we hear little about heat injury among Ninth Parallelers.
"Acclimatization" spells the difference.
When one arrives in a hot climate the body goes to work during the first
several weeks to change to meet the needs. In Iowa in spring, hot and cold
alternate, so our farmer does not acclimatize so easily, hence his heat injury.

In passing I might say, we do accli-
matize to heat, but we do not to cold.
I guess Eskimos are Eskimos because
all the weaklings have been frozen-off.


In heat the fluid content of our
blood and cells becomes relatively
greater and the salt we lose in perspi-
ration becomes relatively less.
This makes possible our heat loss
more efficiently without "so much"
strain on our circulation.
Except in extreme situations we
acclimatized Ninth Parallelers do not
need to take salt tablets. Some indi-
viduals do need to salt food liberally,
after hard work or play. This is per-
fectly all right.
Wear clothing loose to promote air
flow; covering to protect from solar
Fat people are much more suscep-
tible to heat injury than thin. Purdue
University found that individuals 25
percent overweight (or more) were
10 times as susceptible.
Patients with heart trouble or other
circulatory difficulties, of course, are
more affected by heat. Our exchange
of heat to and from our environment
depends on blood circulation, dila-
tion or constriction of skin blood
vessels, evaporation of sweat. Any-
thing hindering this process makes
one more heat injury prone.
Here are some rules:
1. Allow yourself to become accli-
matized each time you return to the
tropics before you attempt heavy
physical activity.
2. Keep your weight down.
3. Dress properly to keep off solar
heat and promote air flow about
your body.
4. Shield yourself at home and at
work from sources of heat: motors,
stoves, electrical devices.
5. Drink lots of water . "hard
liquor" dehydrates one (nct you, of
course). Seriously, alcohol is a severe
6. Salt your food liberally if you

perspire freely. Only if you drink
over 2 gallons of fluid in any day
should you add salt to the water you
drink. Each quart of water drunk
over 2 gallons should have one level
teaspoon of salt in it.
7. Counsel your out-of-tropic
visitors to observe heat safety rules.
So much for a sketch of heat . .
I haven't discussed air conditioning
or comfort. Should I?

monarch will appear on the Balboa
High School Activities Building stage

The extensive forests covering
nearly 45 percent of the total land
area of Honduras are a potential
source of wealth. Mahogany, Spanish
cedar, and pine are commercially the
most important.

Nineteen graduates of the Panama
Canal Apprentice Program were
honored last week at a public grad-
uation ceremony in the Balboa High
School auditorium. Canal officials
and parents, families and friends of
the graduates attended.
In the main address, Col. Ellis E.
Pickering, Engineering and Con-
struction Director, noted the impor-
tance of skilled craftsmanship in the
modern world and stressed the dig-
nity and pride that fully trained
craftsmen should fell in their careers.
He noted that of the many appren-
ticeship programs with which he is
familiar, the Canal program is the
full equal of the best.
Colonel Pickering was introduced
by Edward A. Doolan, Personnel
Director. J. B. Smith, Electrical En-
gineer, who is chairman of the Indus-
trial Training Committee, was master
of ceremonies. Other honor guests
included Capt. Mortimer J. Prince,
USN, Marine Director; Norman E.
Demers, Acting Transportation and

Terminals Director, and Theodore
W. Krzys, Labor Representative on
the Industrial Training Committee,
and chiefs of the divisions from
which apprentices were being grad-
Sabas Domingo, graduating elec-
trician of the Electrical Division,
spoke for his graduating class. He
expressed the gratitude of the class
to their trainers in the shops and the
Apprentice School, and voiced the
group's sense of loss at the recent
death of Apprentice School Instructor
James G. Murray.
Thirteen of the young men were
graduated on the day of the cere-
mony. The other six who received
congratulations had completed their
training during the 12 months since
the previous annual graduation cere-

Tribute Paid to Late Instructor;

Opportunity, Responsibility Are Cited

Tribute was paid to the memory
of the late James G. Murray, Panama
Canal Apprentice School instructor,
by a spokesman for the 1965 class
of graduating apprentices, at cere-
monies held in the Balboa High
School auditorium.
Sabas Domingo, graduating elec-
trician, voiced the personal sense of
loss felt by all apprentices at the
death of Mr. Murray June 15, and
outlined a plan evolved among the
graduates by which Mr. Murray's
dedicated efforts at assisting appren-
tices in their studies both in and out
of class could be continued through
the graduates themselves.
Declaring it an honor to have the
privilege of expressing a few words
in the name of his fellow graduates,
Domingo said:
"We feel very grateful to the Pan-
ama Canal Company for giving us
the opportunity of becoming men
with a trade and a future. We are
proud of having gone through one
of the best apprentice programs of
the world, and we all will try to
maintain the traditional high stand-
ards of the Panama Canal Apprentice
Program. We all are glad to com-
plete our apprenticeship and we all
look forward to continuing with the
Company as journeymen.
"We want to thank all the crafts-
men, foremen, and supervisors in the
different shops for their invaluable
help and we are grateful to the in-
structors of the Apprentice School,
the office personnel and other mem-
bers of the Training Center.
"I would like to express, in behalf
of all the apprentices, past and
present, our deep sorrow at the loss
of our late instructor, Mr. James
CG. Murray, whom we all held in
high esteem.

Sabas Domingo

"Mr. Murray was a wonderful per-
son, a dedicated teacher, and a good
friend of all the apprentices. He
never made any distinction of color
or nationality among the students, for
which we Panamanian apprentices all
feel especially grateful.
"It was his policy to spend many
off-duty hours helping students who
were faltering in their school work.
"Mr. Murray's helping hand may
be stilled, but in the hearts and minds
of his pupils and peers there has been
a continued desire to carry on this
policy of guidance.
"We, as recipients of Mr. Murray's
kindness, would like to see this help-
ing hand extended into the future.
Therefore, the present graduating
class would like to initiate a program
that would help apprentices along
through the difficulties of their
"We now know that most of the
troubles they encounter come not
from their inability to learn the
things they must learn, but because
they won't accept discipline and
advice from older people.
"But we are younger, and we hope
that by bringing OUR influence, also,
to bear upon the new apprentices,
that we can not only show our

appreciation for the efforts of Mr.
Murray, but at the same time we will
be able to save both the new appren-
tices and the Canal a considerable
amount of trouble.
"We, as journeymen, cannot repay
Mr. Murray personally for his extra
help; this would be impossible, but
we can do these things to help.the
underclassmen. We feel that this
would be the most fitting monument
to Mr. Murray that we can offer.
"In conclusion, I would like to
state that we all realize the great
responsibility we have, not only
toward the Company, but toward all
the nations around the world that in
one way or another depend on the
efficiency of the Panama Canal.
Because of this we all have the deter-
mination to work hard, to do our
best, to continue to learn and develop
each day, so we will be able to im-
prove our efficiency and the efficiency
of the Canal for the benefit of world
shipping, the Panama Canal organi-
zation, the United States, and the
Republic of Panama."

For Their Efforts

"I wish you would tell the Pink
Girls how much they meant to us
patients in Ward C," said a letter
from a Coco Solo Hospital patient
sent to the superintendent's office.
Fifty-seven Cristobal High School
girls enrolled during the school vaca-
tion in the 1965 Pink Girl program at
Coco Solo Hospital, sponsored by
Elbert S. Waid Unit No. 2, American
Legion Auxiliary, on the Atlantic side
of the Isthmus.
The program of hospital training
for the high school girls is divided
into two sessions of 6 weeks each.
They are known as Pink Girls
because of the cheery cherry-pink
uniforms they wear.
The complete letter from Mrs.
J. W. Coffin, of Ward C, follows:
"I wish you would tell the Pink
Girls how much they meant to us
patients in Ward C.
"Their pretty faces . cute uni-
forms . cheery good mornings
did so much to brighten up the
"I saw one Pink Girl stand and
very patiently feed one of the very
old patients.
"I know this last 3 weeks went so
much faster while they were here."

adivser had arranged for mail stops
at Davenport and Quincy, Ill., and
Memphis through Elks lodges.
The entire party agreed that the
Mississippi is mischievous. One
minute the water would be smooth
as glass, and the next it would be
swirling and whirling and the little
canoes would be doing a dance.
When they finally made the shore,
the boys recalled, many times it
would be about half an hour before
they got over the feeling of rolling.
The party had one mishap-at Han-
nibal, Mo. The canoe that George
Folger and Ron Farnsworth were
paddling tipped and dumped into the
water. They were lucky, though,
because they lost only a stove and
a roll of film. The other trouble was
wind and rain.
"Castaways," the party was called

in a Halls, Tenn., paper when wind
and rain drove them ashore at Hales
Point, interrupting their trip from
La Crosse, Wis., to New Orleans.
But, amazingly, they encountered
only 2 days of rain on the 26-day trip.
The Mississippi River, still high
after a record flood, caused the Ex-
plorers a few sleepless nights because
a lot of sandbars were still under high
water, preventing camping out.
The boys and their adviser traveled
by plane from the Isthmus to Miami,
where they rented a station wagon
and drove to La Crosse, Wis., where
the canoes were waiting for them.
They left La Crosse June 10. The
three canoes carried the eight persons
and each boat was equipped with a
4-horsepower motor to insure the
necessary 60 miles a day to reach
New Orleans in time to board the
SS Cristobal for the Canal Zone and

Vol. IV, No. 4 50 Ahos de Servicios . Para el Comercio Mundial Viernes 16 de Julio de 1965

Richard S. Sergeant, el Nuevo

El Jefe de Tropa George Folger, a la derecha, y siete Exploradores del Puesto N9 3 de Balboa, parten en una de
las etapas de su viaje de 1.570 millas por el Rio Mississippi desde La Crosse hacia Nueva Orleans. Ron Farns-
worth esta sentado en la primera canoa. En la segunda canoa, de izquierda a derecha, Mario Calleja, Fred Fox
y Monty Trim. Bob Daniel, Ed Mulroy y Wayne Folger estAn en la tercera canoa.



Cinco de los siete muchachos Ex-
ploradores de la Zona del Canal que
con su consejero, George Folger, na-
vegaron rio abajo, por el Mississippi,
en canoa, regresaron al Istmo en el
vapor Cristdbal, gozando en este
viaje de todas las comodidades que
no tuvieron durante su odisea por el
gran rio norteamericano.
El viaje de 1.570 millas por el
Mississippi, lo hicieron en canoas de
"fiberglass," regalo a los Explorado-
res de parte de la unidad local de la
Legi6n Americana.
He aqui c6mo naci6 la idea del
viaje. El puesto de la Legi6n Ameri-
cana regal dos de las canoas y un
cheque para cubrir los gastos del
transport. Las canoas fueron com-
pradas en una firma de Minnesota.
Alguien, viendo el elevado costo del
transport, dijo en son de broma:
"dPor qu6 ustedes mismos, mucha-
chos, no llevan las canoas, por el
Mississippi hasta Nueva Orleans?"
George Folger, encargado de li-
neas de transmisi6n de la organiza-
ci6n del Canal de PanamA, se ofre-
ci6 como consejero de los Explora-
dores de la Zona del Canal, durante
el viaje. El todavia esta en los Esta-
dos Unidos en una convenci6n de
los Elks.
Los que regresaron a bordo del
Cristdbal fueron Wayne Folger, Ron
Farnsworth, Ed Mulroy, Monty Trim
y Fred Fox. Bob Daniel se qued6 en
los Estados Unidos para seguir sus
studios y Mario Calleja esti allia
pasando sus vacaciones de verano.
Los que regresaron dicen que el
Mississippi es fangoso de verdad.
Varias veces tuvieron que racionar
el agua, pues no habia muchos luga-

res, a lo largo del rio, en donde con-
seguir agua potable. Algunas veces
recorrieron hasta 150 millas, sin tener
nada mAs que el caldo lodoso, viscoso
y turbulento que los rodeaba.
Los exploradores zoneitas tuvieron
cAlida acogida en todas parties. Su
consejero habia arreglado, a traves
de los Elks, paradas para recoger el
correo, en Davenport y en Quincy,
Estado de Illinois, y en Memphis,
Estado de Tennessee.
Todos los del grupo dijeron que el
Mississippi es traicionero. El agua,
que un segundo antes estaba tan tersa
como un espejo, al siguiente, era una
ininterrumpida sucesi6n de remoli-

nos que lanzaban las canoas en un
fantasmag6rico baile.
Cuando al fin lograban atracar,
dicen los muchachos, muchas veces
tardaban hasta media hora en perder
la sensaci6n del bamboleo.
El grupo tuvo un accident en
Hannibal, Missouri, cuando la canoa
de George Folger y Ron Farnsworth
se volc6. Fue una suerte que s6lo
perdieran una estufa y un rollo de
pelicula. Otro problema fue la lluvia
y el viento.
"NAufragos," fue el calificativo que
le dio al grupo un peri6dico de Halls,
Tennessee, cuando la lluvia y el

Perros y Gatos Deben Registrarse

En la Zona del Canal en Este Mes

Ya es hora de que todos los perros
y gatos en la Zona del Canal sean
registrados. El registro require
prueba de vacuna contra la hidrofo-
bia. Ademis, cada persona en la Zona
del Canal que tenga, guard o cus-
todie un perro o gato de 4 meses de
edad o mayor, debe vacunarlo contra
la hidrofobia.
Resumiendo, esto significa que la
gente que reside en el sector Paci-
fico del Istmo tiene 10 dias mis, y
aquellos en el sector AtlAntico tienen
2 dias mis durante los cuales se
pondrAn las vacunas. Para el 61timo
dia de julio, todos los perros y gatos
en la Zona deben estar llevando una
de las nuevas y brillantes plaquitas
triangulares de 1965.



Algunos de los primeros cl6rigos
en la Zona del Canal, incluyendo al
Obispo R. Heber Gooden, el Reve-
rendo C. David Zollars, el Rabino
Nathan Witkin, el Reverendo W. H.
Beeby y el Padre Harold Skidmore,
se reunieron esta semana con el Go-
bernador Robert J. Fleming, Jr., para
obtener su apoyo y para discutir los
medios de alentar a las families en
la costumbre de orar unidas.
El lema que ha sido adoptado para
la campafia de la oraci6n en familiar
es "La familiar que reza unida, per-
manece unida."
Algunas families estin separando

tiempo regular cuando toda la fami-
lia esta presente-en el desayuno, la
cena o en cualquier otro tiempo para
devociones especiales. Otras leen al-
gunos versos de la Biblia o alg6n
libro de oraciones, seguido por una
breve plegaria alabando a Dios, agra-
deciendole por sus bondades, o re-
zando por la familiar, amigos y el pais.
Los cl6rigos tendrAn gusto en de-
mostrar a las families c6mo comenzar
las oraciones en familiar. Habri infa-
sis especial en la oraci6n en familiar
en la Zona del Canal y PanamA du-
rante la semana que comienza el
19 de agosto.

Los perros son vacunados cada 3
aimos, pero deben tener una nueva
licencia cada afio. Cualquier perro
registrado desde el 19 de abril de
este ailo, y aquellos cuyos certificados
de vacuna contra la hidrofobia ten-
gan por lo menos 6 meses hasta su
expiraci6n, no necesitan ser registra-
dos sino hasta el pr6ximo ailo. Los
duefios de los canes deben presentar
la vacuna mins reciente contra la hi-
drofobia con la solicitud para una
nueva licencia.
Los gatos deben ser vacunados
cada afio y se les expide plaquitas
Las vacunas para las licencias son
gratuitas, pero el pago para la licen-
cia y placa es de $2 para perros y
gatos. El pago de la vacuna para
perros y gatos cuyos duefios resident
en reservaciones militares, es de $2,
y las plaquitas son expedidas gratis
en las oficinas militares de pases.
Las vacunas pueden obtenerse en
la Clinica para Animales de Corozal
en el sector Pacifico, y en la Oficina
de Sanidad del Area Norte en el sec-
tor Atlintico. Las vacunas se propor-
cionan solamente mediante citas pre-
vias llamando por telkfono a Balboa
2883 o Crist6bal 2576.

<;Que es Io que pasa?
"Las Esclusas de Gat'mn estin pasando ahora mismo por las Esclusas
de Gat6n," dijo una voz exaltada por el tel6fono.
Luego el que llamaba se calm6 y agreg6, "y las Esclusas de Gatun ban
pasado ya por las Esclusas de Miraflores y las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel."
Todo esto se aclar6 cuando se supo que la llamada se referia al barco
Gatun Locks (Esclusas de Gat6n), un tanquero de bandera panamefia
de 13.025 toneladas brutas que transit hacia el norte en lastre. El navio
de 560 por 74 pies estaba de paso procedente de Tacoma, Washing-
ton, hacia Aruba. Alli, de acuerdo con su agent local, Panama Trans-
port Co., el barco puede ser cargado para Jacksonville y luego proseguir
hacia Europa.
"1,De d6nde vino el nombre?" fue la pregunta hecha frecuentemente
cuando el navio cruz6 el Canal. Bueno, por lo menos, la compafiia que
es propietaria del barco es conocida como Gatin Naviera Panamefia.
El Gatun Locks transit previamente el Canal de PanamA rumbo al
sur en mayo de 1964.

Ismael Laguna Cruzara Pufios con el



Locche Manfana

El campe6n mundial del peso ligero, el panamefio Ismael Laguna, se pre-
sentarA por primera vez en la Argentina, mafiana por la noche, cuando se mida
en el Luna Park de Buenos Aires con el campe6n ligero argentino Nicolino
La pelea ha sido pactada a 10 asaltos sobre el limited de la division de las
135 libras y el titulo mundial del boxcador panamefio no estarA en juego en
esta ocasi6n.
Laguna conquist6 el titulo mundial venciendo por decision en 15 asaltos
al puertorriquefio Carlos Ortiz en la noche del 10 de abril de este afio en el

Estadio Olimpico de PanamA y luego derrot6 por nocaut t6cnico en 8 asaltos al
campe6n ligero de M6xico, Ra6l Soriano en la noche del 19 de junio, tambidn
en el Estadio Olimpico, en una pelea que estaba sefialada a 10 asaltos, tambi6n
sin exponer la corona.
AdemAs de sus peleas en PanamA, Laguna ha peleado en Venezuela,
Colombia, Francia, Brasil, Estados Unidos, Mexico y ahora en Argentina.
Indudablemente que el campe6n ligero del mundo es favorite para impo-
nerse al argentino Locche, debido a su mayor experiencia, mejor boxco, asi
como tambi6n mayor alcance y estatura que su pequefio rival.

terciarias (de unos 75 millones de
afios) se cree que se formaron a prin-
cipios o mediados del tiempo cre-
ticeo (hace unos 140 o 75 millones
de ailos), si no antes.
Parece que ya a mediados o finales
de los tiempos creticeos, el Istmo de
PanamA era parte de una masa te-
rrAquea, que emergia sobre las
aguas. A finales del medio Eoceno,
ocurri6 intense actividad volcAnica
en la parte oriental de PanamA.
A mediados o finales del Eoceno, los
pliegues c6ncavos Bayano-Chucuna-
que-Tuira y Bolivar se empezaron a
former y se unieron los oc6anos
AtlAntico y Pacifico. Las islas de
rocas preterciarias, que eran rema-
nentes de porciones de tierras
anteriores, permanecieron sobre las
El period Oligoceno fue prece-
dido por erupciones de actividad vol-
cAnica que continue hasta principios
del Mioceno. En ese tiempo la masa
de tierra de PanamA estaba conec-
tada con Norte America, pues asi lo
parece demostrar el nuevo encuentro
de f6siles de vertebrados en las orillas
del Canal de PanamA.

A la Memoria de J. G. Murray se

Rindio Tribulto en una Ceremonia

Se rindi6 tribute a la memorial de
James G. Murray, instructor de la
Escuela de Aprendices del Canal de
PanamA, en las ceremonies de gra-
duaci6n de la clase de 1965. Lo hizo
el vocero de los graduandos, en la
ceremonia que se efectu6 en el Audi-
torio de la Escuela Superior de
Sabas Domingo, electricista gra-
duando, hizo present el dolor de
todos sus compaileros por la muerte,
el dia 15 de junior, del Sr. Murray y
deline6 el plan desarrollado por los
graduandos, para que ellos mismos
pudieran proseguir los esfuerzos que
el Sr. Murray hizo, tanto en clase
como fuera de ella, para ayudarlos
en sus studios.
Declarando un honor el privilegio
de hablar a nombre de sus compa-
fieros, Domingo dijo:
"Nos sentimos sumamente agrade-
cidos de la Compania del Canal de
PanamA, por habernos dado la opor-
tunidad de convertirnos en hombres
con una profesi6n y un future. Nos
sentimos orgullosos de haber tenido
uno de los mejores programs de
aprendizaje en el mundo, y todos
trataremos de mantener en alto el
prestigio del Programa de Aprendi-
zaje del Canal de PanamA. Estamos
orgullosos de haber completado
nuestro aprendizaje y todos desea-
mos continuar con la Compafiia como
"Queremos agradecer a todos los
artesanos, capataces y jefes de los
diferentes talleres, por su valiosisima
ayuda, lo mismo que a los instructo-
res de la Escuela de Aprendizaje, el
personal de oficina y a los demis
miembros del Centro de Entrena-
"Quisiera expresar, a nombre de
todos los aprendices, pasados y pre-
sentes, nuestro mis sincere pesar por
la muerte de nuestro instructor,
James G. Murray, a quien todos te-
niamos en alta estimaci6n.
"El Sr. Murray era una persona
maravillosa, maestro consagrado y
gran amigo de todos los aprendices.
Nunca tuvo diferencias entire los es-
tudiantes, debido al color o naciona-
lidad, por lo cual nosotros los apren-
dices panamefios nos sentimos espe-
cialmente agradecidos.
"Era su costumbre pasar muchas
de sus horas libres ayudando a los
estudiantes que estaban fallando en
su trabajo escolar.
"La mano generosa del Sr. Murray
podrA haberse paralizado, pero en
las mentes y en los corazones de sus
alumnos estA present el deseo de
continuar sus ideas de instrucci6n.
"Nosotros, que sabiamos de la
bondad del Sr. Murray, deseariamos
que su ayuda se extendiera hacia el
future. Por ello, la present gradua-

Sabas Domingo

ci6n desearia iniciar un program
que ayudaria a los estudiantes a tra-
ves de las dificultades del aprendi-
"Nosotros sabemos ahora que la
mayor parte de las dificultades que
ellos encuentran se deben, no a su
inhabilidad para aprender las cosas,
sino debido a que no aceptan la dis-
ciplina y los consejos de los mayores.
"Pero nosotros somos mas j6venes,
y esperamos que haciendo que tam-
bi6n nuestra experiencia influya so-
bre ellos, no solo haremos que se vea
nuestro agradecimiento por los es-
fuerzos del Sr. Murray, sino que aho-
rraremos a los nuevos aprendices y
al Canal una gran cantidad de pro-
"Nosotros, como obreros asalaria-
dos, jamAs podremos pagarle al Sr.
Murray por su ayuda extra; ello seria
impossible, pero podemos hacer esto
para ayudar a los que vengan des-
pues de nosotros. Creemos que este
es el mejor monument que podemos
levantar a la memorial del Sr. Murray.
"Para finalizar, desearia declarar
que todos nos damos cuenta de la
gran responsabilidad que tenemos,
no solo para con la Compafiia, sino
para con todas las naciones del
mundo, que de una u otra manera
dependent de la eficiencia del Canal
de PanamA. Por ello, todos estamos
determinados a trabajar duro, lo
mejor possible, para mejorar nuestra
eficiencia y la eficiencia del Canal
para beneficio de la navegaci6n mun-
dial, la organizaci6n del Canal de
Panama, los Estados Unidos y la
Republica de PanamA."

Oido por casualidad: "No fume en
la cama. Las cenizas que caigan en
el suelo pueden ser las suyas."

Todavia PanamA estaba separada,
al este, por la geosinclinaci6n de Bo-
livar, a traves de la cual la fauna
marina del AtlAntico y del Pacifico
se entremezclaba; pero, al mismo
tiempo, los vertebrados de Sur Ame-
rica, no podian entrar a PanamA.
Al final del Plioceno, el Istmo
entero surgi6 sobre el nivel del mar,
permaneciendo alli hasta el present.
Ello hizo possible que los vertebrados
de ambos continents se mezclaran.
En el Pleistoceno, durante la Apoca
de los grandes hielos, cuando el con-
tinente norte estaba cubierto de gla-
ciares, la fauna y la flora fueron em-
pujadas hacia el sur, por la dureza
del clina, y el nivel del mar, estaba
en PanamA unos 150 pies por debajo
del nivel actual.
A media que el hielo se fue derri-
tiendo al final del Pleistoceno, fue
subiendo en proporci6n el nivel del
mar en el AtlAntico y el Pacifico.
Entonces fue cuando sucedi6 el ilti-
mo surgimniento del nivel del mar;
hay cierta, leve evidencia, de que
puede haber estado tanto como 5
pies mis alto, en la costa AtlAntica
de lo que esta ahora.

Julio 16, 1965


El secret de la buena salud mental consiste en la habilidad de saber
dominar los sentimientos hostiles. Existen modalidades burdas que pode-
mos observer en otras personas y que deberiamos poder discernir entire
nuestras propias families. A veces no somos honestos del todo. Con fre-
cuencia ocurre que uno u otro de los esposos es engafioso. Violamos los
acuerdos. Nos desentendemos. No nos ayudamos.
Dejamos de acudirle en moments que el c6nyuge mis necesita del
apoyo del otro, y que por poco respaldo que se le diera la diferencia
seria enorme. Nos negamos a llevar a cabo el papel que nos corresponde
que es parte necesaria en la participaci6n de la vida matrimonial y la
gDe que le vale a un hombre ser un genio en el negocio para fracasar
como padre por haberle obligado a la esposa a sobrellevar por si sola
todo el neso de la responsabilidad paternal?
Nos desentendemos uno del otro sin sentir la menor preocupaci6n.
Somos desagradables. Regafiamos y desestimamos. La hostilidad se
puede expresar mediante la indelicadeza, la inatenci6n, el egoismo, y la
exigencia excesiva. Una actitud favorite de algunos esposos es sentirse
martires. Se puede estar demasiado ocupado para ayudar al otro. Algunas
esposas estAn tan ocupadas dedicAndose a la salvaci6n de la comunidad
que sus propias families se desintegran.
Algunos maridos dedican demasiado tiempo a las actividades en que
sus esposas no pueden participar. Por mils que los esposos no pueden-ni
deben-participar en todo lo que hace el otro, se puede tomar mAs parte
de lo que se suele hacer en la mayoria de las families, en que ain para
sus pasatiempos cada uno toma por su lado.
El interns que desarrollemos en nuestros hijos depend de la consis-
tencia o inconsistencia de nuestras actitudes hacia ellos y la inversi6n
que nosotros hagamos en ellos en terminos de tiempo, energia, dedica-
ci6n, consideraci6n, y, desde luego, carifio brindado. Ellos se identifican
automAticamente con nosotros. AdemAs de parecersenos, hasta caminan
como nosotros.
Ellos incorporan nuestras ideas auin sin darse cuenta de que lo hacen.
Inconscientemente ellos nos copian. Cuando nos ven hacer algo, ellos
tratan de hacer lo mismo que nosotros.
Mediante estos dos procedimientos nos hacemos responsables de incul-
car o no los rasgos apuntados: sinceridad, honestidad, e integridad. Asi
como nosotros nos servimos de nuestros padres como ejemplo, igualmente
nuestros hijos se servirAn de nosotros como sus ejemplos.

del Journal of Occupational Medicine, marzo de 1965.)
