43 Get Suggestion Awards

Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., presented 43 beneficial sug-
gestion awards last week to Panama
Canal employees who had submitted
ideas that would result in savings.
The top award of $90 was received
by Concepci6n Barrios of the Com-
munity Services Division. He sug-
gested a proceed; re for the entry of
grass cutting machines into tank farm
fire walls which is estimated to result
in a savings of $1,450 per year.
Four employees were presented
awards of $60 each. Stanley R. Field
of the Motor Transportation Division
suggested a procedure to reduce
maintenance work on forklift power
unit governors. Margaret E. Orvis of
the Construction Division proposed
a simplified form for reporting work
complete on contract payments,
which is expected to result in an
estimated savings of $1,000 per year.
Ethel W. Brown of the Marine Bu-
reau and Joan C. Fitzgerald, formerly
with the Marine Bureau, received
$60 each for a joint suggestion for
utilization of unskilled personnel for
relamping specific areas in the locks
to effect a savings of $2,000 per year.
A $50 check was presented to
Ernest C. Van Horn for a suggestion
of installation of a protective device
on the load side of towing locomo-
tive rectifiers to reduce rectifier
Robert S. Goldson of the Comp-
troller's Officer received a $30 check
for a suggestion for replacement of
uninked stamp pads with inked stamp
pads to effect a material savings of
$400 per year.
Four $25 awards were presented
to R. A. McClean of the Navigation
Division, Stanley R. Field of the
Motor Transportation Division, Wil-
liam H. Henderson of the Locks Divi-
sion, and Robert D. Konnagan of the
Health Bureau. McLean suggested
installation of portable lighting

arrestors on auxiliary bridges of tran-
siting vessels to eliminate a safety
hazard. Field's suggestion was a pro-
cedure for the installation of canopies
on forklift trucks. Henderson sug-
gested a modification to locks center-
wall locomotive cranes to improve
crane availability and Konnagan sub-
mitted two proposals for the develop-
ment of personnel compensation
schedules which will simplify the
preparation and submission of oper-
ating budgets.
Three awards for $20 went to Paul
J. Coleman of the Comptroller's
Office for his suggestion of a sim-
plified system for the release of em-
ployees' shipments by the Balboa
customs office; to Margaret E. Orvis
of the Construction Division who
recommended a revision to contract
file cards which will eliminate two
log books; and to Enrique A. Brown
of Coco Solo Hospital who suggested
that instruction sheets regarding the
reporting of fires in the hospitals be
posted in English and in Spanish.

"The automobile, to American
youth, is a symbol of social status,
independence and maturity," the
Automotive Safety Foundation points
out. The disproportionately high
ratio of accidents among teenage
drivers, however, is one of our major
safety problems today.
A practical solution to this problem
is the high school driver education
program. According to the Automo-
tive Safety Foundation, Washington,
D.C., high school driver education
offers the greatest promise for cor-
recting and preventing dangerous
faults. Young drivers who complete
qualified driver education courses
have substantially better driving
records than those lacking such
Since 1948, approximately 3,126
high school students have completed
the driver education program in the
Canal Zone. The first class had only
8 students. The enlarged program
now can accommodate more than
300 students during the school year.
Driver education during the school
year on the Pacific side is taught by
George W. Case and Carrol Ander-

son; Charles T. Reeves is the Atlantic
side instructor.
Approximately 120 students -are
involved in the summer driver edu-
cation program currently underway
at the Balboa and Cristobal High
Schools. These students are learning
the important rules of the road and
safety procedures for safe driving in
this 30-session course being taught
by Ralph Farnsworth on the Pacific
side and Charles T. Reeves on the
Atlantic side.
Case said that any student who
passes the driver education course
becomes eligible to obtain his driver's
license at age 17; 18 is the normal
age. In order to be eligible for driver
education training, high school fresh-
men, sophomores, or juniors must be
at least 17 years old on the day the
course begins.
In the classroom, students learn
sportsmanlike driving techniques
from AAA driver education books.
They also learn to use depth percep-
tion and night vision machines, and
are shown the latest films on driving
safety. Under the Home-School
Cooperative System, parents have the
responsibility of giving their children
actual driving training, and about
99 percent of all cars marked "L"
(learner) are part of the course.
Although teenagers in the United
States are involved in numerous
traffic accidents, the number of teen-
agers involved in such accidents in
the Zone is comparatively small.
"Due to the driver education pro-
gram conducted by the high schools,"
says Chief E. S. Shipley, of the Canal
Zone Police Division, "we feel that
this has been both advantageous to
the student drivers and to public
safety in general."

Now, About

Quite often, PanCanal employees
returning from leave become some-
what annoyed upon seeing a payroll
V deduction for the use of electricity in
their quarters during their absence.
This is impossible, they say. The
meter must be wrong. That much
electricity couldn't have possibly
been used during my leave of
These same employees, however,
don't seem to realize that the payroll
deduction they received was not for
the month or so that they were gone
but for the previous month, and they
soon realize this when there's a con-
siderably lower payroll deduction on
their next paycheck.
Here's how the electric meter
Russell A. Weade, Jr. system works:
Each month 4 meter readers of
the Electrical Division read approxi-
mately 6,900 watt-hour meters,
i which usually are located outside of
M o vi es each employee's quarters.
Tues.-The Spy With My Face Each set of quarters has a separate
Wed.-NO SHOW set of meters, and each meter has
Thurs.-Of Human Bondage
Fri.-Carry On Regardless its own distinct number. The meter
reader reads the figures on the meter
and records his findings on a sheet
in his meter book.
Each meter sheet has on it the
S M matinee meter number of the apartment or
Special M matinee house, the occupant's name, his I.P.

user finds a payroll deduction on his

For example, the amount of elec-
tricity used in an employee's home
in the month of April will be read
during the first week of May. After
the meters have been read and
checked by the meter clerk, this April
reading will be sent to the Payrolls
Branch, where a payroll deduction
will be made for the pay period of
May 23 through June 5. The user,
however, will not receive his pay
check for this period until the week
of June 13.
The user, then, actually is paying
in June for the electricity he used
back in April.
Harvey Smith. Acting Chief of the
Electrical Works Branch, noted that
the watt-hour meter is simply an
electric motor whose speed is deter-
mined by the amount of current that
passes through it. The meter, how-
ever, is the most accurate of any
commercially used measuring device.
Meters are checked for accuracy
once every 3 years, Smith said. This
is standard procedure, and at this
time they are adjusted for one-half
of 1 percent accuracy if they are not
already within this tight range. Any
inact uracy ill the meter, which may
he caused by dirt or bad hearings
which tend to slow the meter down,
is always an advantage to the user.

Church To Honor

Organist Sunday

The First Baptist Church will have
a special service Sunday, August 1,
in recognition of the church organist.
Mrs. Fred Watts will leave the Isth-
mus after 19 years as church organist
for the Baptist congregation. As far
as it is known, this is the longest
term of a church organist on the
Mrs. Watts, familiarily known as
Louise, has served as church organist
for the entire period of the present
pastorate of the Reverend William
H. Beeby. Her first service at the
organ 19 years ago coincided with
the first service of Rev. Beeby when
called as pastor of the church. She
has continually been at the console
for the entire time, except for a brief
period when she lived in Texas,
returning then to resume her music
post with the Baptist church.
Mrs. Watts is a graduate of the
Julliard School of Music, New York,
N.Y. Before coming to the Canal
Zone, she was for 8 years the organist
of the largest pipe organ in Pitts-
burgh, Pa. During this time she was
the organ accompanist and continuity
writer for the radio program of
Edwin McCue, gospel singer on a
nationwide NBC network broadcast.
During the years she has par-
ticipated in the dedication of a new
organ, new chimes, and the expan-
sion of the morning service into two
services, requiring organ work at
four services and one rehearsal each
week. Organ and piano pupils have
held their recitals at the church under
the teaching of Mrs. Watts. Two to
four series of special revival meetings
each year and two to four cantatas
and choir concerts each year have
increased the many hours of church
service at the console.
Mr. and' Mrs. Watts are to leave
the Isthmus in a few days. Mr. Watts
is being transferred by FAA for
operations in New Mexico. One of
their two daughters, Bernice, a senior
in Balboa High School, will accom-
pany them. The other daughter,
Mrs. Pat Biogi, is living in Philadel-
phia with her husband and their boy
and girl.
She will be honored at all services
of the church Sunday, especially at
the 7:30 p.m. service.

intendent of Corozal Hospital, mem-
bers-at-large; and Di6genes de la

In addition to election of officers,
the group attended a briefing on
Gorgas Hospital by Charles M. Ewell,
Gorgas Administrative Assistant, and
made a tour of the new annex.

A luncheon, featuring addresses by
Dr. Roderick Esquivel, Panama's
Minister of Labor, Social Welfare,
and Public Health, and Col. Harry
D. Offutt, Jr., Director, Gorgas Hos-
pital, was held at the Tivoli Guest
House. The association's next meet-
ing is scheduled for August 17, ten-
tatively set for Panama's Social
Security Hospital.
The group's first meeting was held
at Panama's Nicolas A. Solano Hos-
pital last month. At that time the
objectives of the organization were
stressed: An attempt to improve
medical care in the Canal Zone and
Panama by cooperation and mutual
understanding between administra-
tors in the Zone and the Republic.

Doris A. Zambrano, salvavidas en las
piscinas de Paraiso y Gamboa, trabaja
para la Divisi6n de Escuelas de la
Zona del Canal. AdemAs, es estu-
diante de tercer afio de la Facultad
de Educaci6n Fisica de la Universi-
dad Nacional de Panami; pertenece
a la Brigada de Salvavidas Volunta-
rios de la Cruz Roja Nacional de
Panama, que presta servicios en la
playa de Santa Clara y la Isla de
Taboga; ensefia nataci6n, y coleccio-
na estampillas. Son las actividades de
esta guapa muchacha, a la que solo
le falta el titulo de Sefiorita Panama,
para completar los rasgos de su per-
sonalidad. Entr6 al servicio de la or-
ganizaci6n del Canal en enero de
1963, a la edad de 20 afios y es muy
apreciada por sus compafieros de
trabajo debido a sus magnificas cua-
lidades. Vive en el Edificio Heurte-
matte y Arias, en la ciudad de Pan'a-
mi y cuando le preguntamos, nos
contest con una sonrisa: "Claro que
me gusta andar con muchachos, pero
no quiero tomar nada en serio. Pri-
mero son mis studios. Despu6s
tomar6 una decision."


8Quien de nosotros no lo ha visto un domingo o un dia de asueto cuando
hemos ido a intimar con la Madre Naturaleza, en los Jardines de Summit?
. . Es Victor Guinsan B., los dias de semana jardinero y los domingos y
dias de fiesta, el "factotum" de ese paradisiaco lugar que el Canal de PanamA
mantiene para solaz de los residents del Istmo de PanamA. Sorprendimos
a Victor cuando regaba las plants alrededor del invernadero que estA a la
entrada de los jardines. Nos dice que la tremenda sequia de este afio, lo
obliga a regar las plants a ciertas horas del dia, para evitar que se arruinen.
Pero cuando Victor se entusiasma es cuando nos habla de su lucha contra
las arrieras. "Ese es el verdadero enemigo que tenemos aqui. Yo las persigo
por todos los medios posibles." "Cuando encuentro un camino de arrieras,
cojo mi tanque de insecticide y no paro hasta encontrar el nido."
"A veces me he internado en la montafia, por various kil6metros, hasta encon-
trar el lugar de donde salen." Victor naci6 en Gorgona, el 23 de marzo de
1905. "Ahora todo estA bajo del agua," nos dice sonriendo. Vive en PanamA.
Dice que tuvo en sus buenos tiempos una sombrereria, pero sC meti6 a
politico y lo perdi6 todo. "Desde entonces, 1939, estoy trabajando con el
Canal de PanamA y estoy muy contento" luego, con su tanque de insecticida
al hombro, sale a matar mAs arrieras.

Muy frecuentemente, los emplea-
dos del Canal de PanamA, cuando
regresan de sus vacaciones, se en-
cuentran con que se les ha hecho
una deducci6n de sueldo por el uso
de electricidad. i Es impossible, dicen,
el medidor debe estar equivocado!
i Es impossible que durante mi ausen-
cia se haya utilizado toda esa electri-
No se dan cuenta estos empleados,
de que la deducci6n no es por el mes
que estuvieron fuera, sino por el mes
anterior, ya que al siguiente period
notan que el descuento por electrici-
dad es much menor.
El sistema del medidor de electri-
cidad trabaja asi:
Cada mes, cuatro lectores de la
Division de Electricidad, leen aproxi-
madamente, 6.900 medidores, que
usualmente estin situados en la parte
de afuera de las residencias de los
Cada unidad de vivienda tiene su
unidad de medidores por separado,
y cada medidor tiene su nimero dis-
tintivo. El lector toma los n6meros
del medidor y los anota en una hoja
de su libro de registro.
Cada hoja de medidor tiene el nd-
mero del apartamiento o casa, el
nombre del que la ocupa, su numero
de identificaci6n, el n6mero de kilo-
vatios-hora usados, la cantidad que
luego es cargada por este uso y sufi-
ciente espacio para hacer las anota-
ciones de un ailo. El lector pone sus
iniciales y ocasionalmente vuelve a
verificar sus lectures en caso de en-
contrar algo fuera de lo normal.
El libro de registro va entonces a
la Division de Electricidad en donde
un oficinista computa la cantidad que
debe ser cargada por los kilovatios-
hora usados. El libro de registro es

La Asociaci6n de Padres de Fami-
lia y Maestros de la Escuela Secun-
daria de Paraiso, llev6 a cabo una
excursion por las nuevas instalacio-
nes del Hospital Gorgas el jueves 22
del corrientc por la noche.
Un total de 34 personas, divididas
en dos grupos, hicieron el recorrido
por el Gorgas, para familiarizarse con
la ubicaci6n de las clinics, ver el
nuevo equipo m6dico y conocer el
por qu6 ciertos metodos m6dicos y
administrativos son usados.
La excursion fue arreglada por el
president de la Asociaci6n de Pa-
dres de Familia y Maestros, Chris E.

ducci6n en su pr6ximo cheque.
Por ejemplo, la cantidad de elec-
tricidad usada en la casa de un em-
pleado, durante el mes de abril, sera
leida durante la primera semana de
mayo. Luego de que los medidores
han sido leidos y verificados por el
oficinista de medidores, esta lectura
del mes de abril es enviada al Ramo
de N6minas, en donde se hara la
deducci6n para el period del 23 de
mayo al 5 de junio. Sin embargo, el

Harvey Smith, Jefe Interino del
Ramo de Trabajos de Electricidad,
indic6 que el medidor de electrici-
dad, no es otra cosa que un motor
el6ctrico, cuya velocidad es determi-
nada por la cantidad de corriente
elictrica que pase por 61. Este es,
sin embargo el mejor de todos los
medidores que se usan comercial-
Smith dijo que cada 3 afios, se
verifica la exactitud de los medido-
res, como procedimiento normal, a
un medio de 1 por ciento, si ya no
estin en ese punto. Cualquier inexac-
titud en el medidor, tiende a benefi-
ciar al consumidor, ya que es causada
por polvo o desgaste en las balineras,
que restan velocidad al medidor.





Leyendo las cifras de un medidor de electricidad residential, esti Alva
Nurse, de la Divisi6n de Electricidad, quien temporalmente ayuda al lector
regular en el lado Pacifico. Cada mes se leen en la Zona del Canal,
aproximadamente 6.900 medidores de electricidad.

Ernest Berger, mecinico de instruments el'ctricos de la Divisi6n de Elec-
tricidad, estA reparando uno de various medidores de electricidad residential.
For lo menos una vez cada 3 afios, se verifican los medidores de electricidad
residential. para ajustarlos en caso de que no est6n trabajando con exactitud.
