50 Years of Service . To World Commerce

. Retirements Picture

"-'Sparks Program for

6L Long-Range Staffing

Panama President Marco A. Robles (right, foreground) smilingly shakes hands with Canal Zone Gov. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr., as cameras whirr and click. The occasion was inauguration of an addition to the facilities at
the Divisa Agricultural School. Governor Fleming, in a brief talk in Spanish, presented 30 calves from Mindi
Dairy to the Divisa school.

He's in a position where he gets
squawks. But the squawking doesn't
bother Dr. Irving J. Strumpf, Chief,
Obstetrical and Gynecology Service
at Gorgas Hospital. Not one bit. He
just quotes more statistics.
Dr. Strumpf, who is retiring after
15 years' Panama Canal service,
proudly presents his charts which
show that in the past 12V2 years and
approximately 13,000 deliveries, the
Canal Zone maternal mortality rate
is less than half the maternal mor-
tality rate in the United States. The
Canal Zone infant mortality rate also
is one-half or one-third below that
in the States.
Another major area of his interest
has been the work of the Canal Zone
Cancer Committee and the Cancer
Detection Clinic that is to be set up
at Gorgas Hospital. Dr. Strumpf
stresses the importance of early de-
tection and the probabilities of a
resultant complete cure or arrest of
the cancer as a result of periodic
Dr. Strumpf, who was born in
Congers, N.Y., was graduated from
the Columbia University College of
Pharmacy, cum laude, with a Ph. G.

degree in 1922. He received his
bachelor of science degree at New
York University in 1925 and was a
member of Phi Beta Kappa. In 1928
he received his M.D. at New York
University Bellevue Hospital Med-
ical College and interned for 2 years
at Bellevue Hospital.
From 1931-32, he was resident
gynecologist at Bellevue Hospital
and then was resident in obstetrics
for a year at Margaret Hague Mater-
nity Hospital, Jersey City, N.J. The
next 2 years he was an instructor at
Bellevue Hospital and in 1934 re-
ceived his certification as a specialist
from the American Board of Obste-
trics and Gynecology.
Dr. Strumpf was in private prac-
tice in Jacksonville, Fla., until May
1942 when he volunteered for active
duty and served with the U.S. Army
until January 1946. He reverted to
inactive status with the rank of
colonel. For the terminal portion of
his army service, he was gynecology
consultant at Lawson General Hos-

There's a wrong way to do it and
a write way to do it.
In an effort to improve the quality
of handwriting of the average per-
son, the Canal Zone Schools Divi-
sion has adopted a new penmanship
program for the coming school year.
Aimed primarily at the elementary
schools, part of the program deals
with a specific ball point pen for use
by Canal Zone students this year in
grades 4, 5, and 6.
The pen, Scripto-Memo-Fine-
T180-Blue, initially will be supplied
by the Schools Division. Replace-
ments may be purchased at the
Canal Zone Service Centers and
military exchanges.

"Opportunities for advancement
excellent, particularly on upper
echelon levels."
That could well be the sign hung
out by the Panama Canal organiza-
tion, which faces retirement attrition
of approximately 2,600 of 4,500
skilled and professional U.S. wage
base employees during the next 15
And experience has shown that
almost twice as many attritional
vacancies will occur through other
causes-resignation, removals, separ-
ation-transfers, deaths, and disability
retirement-as through retirement.
A recent study shows that 894
PanCanal employees in U.S. wage
base positions will be eligible to
retire voluntarily within 5 years,
another 955 in 6 to 10 years, and
761 more in 11 to 15 years, for a
grand total of 2,610 over the next
15 years.
There currently are 4,529 em-
ployees in U.S. wage base positions.
The expected attrition amounts to
approximately 85 percent of pres-
ent manual supervisory personnel,
approximately 80 percent of power
branch personnel, almost the same
figure for administrative (NM-11
and above) personnel and nearly 70
percent of floating equipment per-
Concern over long-range staffing
for continued efficient operation of
the Canal was expressed by the
Board of Directors, which directed
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., to
prepare a plan for alleviating the
anticipated critical staffing shortages.
The Board has approved a plan
submitted by the Governor which
includes basic methods of meeting
the needs. Among these are a large-
scale, wide-spectrum management,
professional, and clerical trainee
program and a significant expan-

sion of the current apprenticeship
The program calls for an expen-
diture of some $500,000 annually
and construction of an addition to
the Personnel Bureau's Training
Center has been authorized.
Analysis and a summary of the
staffing problem and programs are
contained in a Personnel Bureau
report on personnel administration
and statistics for fiscal year 1965,
issued recently.
Among other items in the report
are notes that virtually all employees
of the Canal organization received
salary and wage increases during the
fiscal year in 6 different wage adjust-
ments and the fact that administra-
tion of the salary and wage program
by the Personnel Bureau now
involves 17 different pay systems.
During the year, the bureau also
developed for submission two im-
portant items of legislation. One
would amend the Cash Relief Act
of 1937 to increase payments to
non-U.S. beneficiaries by $10 a
month to a maximum of $65 per
month and make provision for pay-
ments to widows of disability relief
Cash relief payments were made
to more than 2,800 former em-
ployees in fiscal year 1965. Since
October 1958 non-U.S. citizen re-
tirees have come under the Civil
Service Retirement Act. More than
10,500 now are covered.
The other would allow the U.S.
Government to participate as an em-
ployer in a group health insurance
program for non-U.S. citizen em-
ployees and retirees of the U.S. Gov-
ernment agencies in the Canal Zone.
This would allow matching contribu-
tions toward premium payments.

Accident Cost Reduced,

But Not by All Units

While the Panama Canal organiza-
tion's total accident cost per em-
ployee was reduced from $13.27 in
fiscal year 1964 to $12.70 in fiscal
year 1965, the improvement wasn't
an across-the-board proposition and
"evaluated" costs actually increased.
Actual costs were reduced from
$6.23 to $5.33. Evaluated costs went
up from $7.04 to $7.37.
Actual costs are funds spent during
a fiscal year on medical treatment,
hospitalization, leave, and injury
compensation payments.
Evaluated costs are those which
are estimated to be required to be
paid in fiscal year 1966 and in future
years for serious injuries and for fatal
accidents in fiscal year 1965. These
payments include continuing medical
treatment, disability payments, and
pensions to widows and children.
The Panama Canal Safety Branch

has furnished a table to all units so
they may know what contribution
their units made-or did not make-in
lowering the accident rate, painful
injuries, and costs.
Two PanCanal bureaus and staff
and administrative units had lower
per employee accident costs in fiscal
year 1965 than the previous year,
with reductions ranging as high as
60 percent. Four bureaus had in-
creased costs, one of them nearly
double the figure for the previous
While Panama Canal safety reg-
ulations declare safety a "group
effort" requiring the cooperation of
all, specific responsibilities are placed
on supervisors to insure that em-
ployees know and comply with safety
regulations and safe practices and

School Health Service

Previously, I mentioned a few
generalities about starting school.
More specifically, I want to note
some of the health services available.
Before the 2,500 children who
enter kindergarten and first grade
tramp off to Canal Zone schools each
year, we hold a physical examination
Not more than half of the eager
young faces show up for this exam-
ination. But speaking generally of
such programs held elsewhere, this
figure measures acceptably.
The school health program does
not end with the round-up: it begins.
Throughout the entire school life of
your child the school nurse and
physician will be available to help
and counsel you.
I asked Dr. Edward Kimm, our
new school health physician, what
his program consisted of.
"All of us," he answered, "the
teacher, the nurse, I, will observe
the children. If needed, a child will
receive first aid for minor injuries.
But, of course, we want the program
to go far beyond this. A school health
program is designed to prevent illness
and correct defects."
He continued, "Each child will be
skin tested for tuberculosis; be given
a vision test and a hearing test at
proper times in his school life. We
also examine children at proper
intervals or for special reasons such
as athletic participation.
"Among the most important parts
of any school health program are
the observations of the parents and
teachers of the child's behavior and
apparent health. All questions about
health should be referred to the

official publication of the Panama
Canal, Balboa Heights, C.Z. News
articles and pictures contained in it are
made available to all interested news
media for whatever use they may wish
to make of them and may be reprinted
without official clearance.

nurse or the doctor. And any findings
or information nurses and the doctor
discover are relayed to the parent.
If the child needs referral to a
clinical physician or dentist, we will
recommend this."
I thanked Dr. Kimm, who received
his medical degree from Ohio State
University. He and his wife and four
children have lived in the Canal Zone
since last year, while he completed
his internship at Gorgas Hospital.
Together with the eight nurses in-
volved in the school health program,
Dr. Kimm will not only strive to per-
form routine functions but will also
be available for special health prob-
lems as they arise among the school-
children. His phone number is
2-2732. He also may be reached
through the school nurse.

Library Adds

Gold Rush Article

To Panama Data

Availability of "book bait" has
resulted in acquisition of a "most
useful addition" to the Canal Zone
Library-Museum's Panama Collec-
It's a copy of the Pacific Historian
containing an article on the gold
rush to California, during which
thousands followed the route across
the Isthmus of Panama. The volume
came from the University of the
Pacific, Stockton, Calif.
In return, the university's library
will receive a file of back issues of
the weekly SPILLWAY.
Thousands of back issues of the
REVIEW, dating back to 1950, were
made available to the Library-
Museum last year by the Information
Office, for use by the Library in
expanding its exchange program with
other libraries.
Announcements are made to
libraries in the United States and
elsewhere asking for back issues of
periodicals and excess books in ex-
change for REvIEw files. By thi's
method, the library staff can more
fruitfully complete files and at the
same time tell the story of the Pan-
ama Canal to a large audience of
potential readers through the Pan-
Canal publications.
Spanish editions of the REVIEw
were welcomed by the Biblioteca
Nacional de PanamA for a similar
exchange program.

For some fancy but intelligent thinking regarding footwork on the job,
Victor Morris, center, is now a member of the Golden Shoe Club. Morris,
an employee of the Supply Division, Mount Hope Warehouse, recently
received a certificate and pin from John F. Manning (left), Acting Super-
intendent, Retail Store Branch, for his wise practice of wearing safety boots
on the job. He thus suffered only a broken toe when his foot was caught
between a concrete platform and a truck backing up to the platform.
Without safety boots or shoes, a crushed foot probably would have resulted.
T. G. Relihan, Deputy Director, Supply and Community Service Bureau,
looks on, as do Morris' coworkers in the background.

John Le Carr6, who proved his
mastery of the suspense story with
"The Spy Who Came In From the
Cold," has written a second super
novel of espionage called "The
Looking Glass War." This one is
equally absorbing. Completely dif-
ferent from the glamorized type of
secret agent, the spies depicted by
Mr. Le Carr6 are weary, disillusioned
men whose activities, while exciting
to read about, are the realistic oper-
ations of a difficult profession. This
well-written book demonstrates the
author's talent as a serious novelist

framework often causes the reader
to forget it is a work of fiction."
"Day of Trinity," by Lansing
Lamont, tells the whole incredible
story of the 1945 atomic explosion
at Los Alamos-the successful explo-
sion of the atomic bomb. Dr. Ralph
E. Lapp calls this book "an atomic
thriller with all the flourishes of
James Bond-spies, explosions, death,

lished. Now in his early fifties, the
son has written "Life Begins at
Fifty," as he believes that the prob-
lems today, and the opportunities,
too, center around the age of 50, not
40. This book is optimistic, humor-
ous, and eminently practical; its
carefully researched suggestions and
case histories have valuable lessons
for everyone. Retirement income,
plans for travel, health, hobbies, all
are discussed. The author suggests
that life is an adventure and the best
approach is an imaginative, indepen-
dent-minded one. The book stresses
the ages from 50 to 65 because the
author believes that these are the
most pleasurable years of all and the
ones that determine the course of the
years to follow.

Reyes Rolls To

Lead Seagram's

To Cyrca Title
Most' Valuable Player and top
scorer Ram6n Reyes led Seagram's
V.O. to the Cyrca Basketball League
title last week to close out the finest
Cyrca season yet.
Seagram's copped the first half
crown. The second half, however,
resulted in a 3-way tie for first:
Seagram's, Peugeot 404, and Chivas
Regal. In a playoff for the second
half title, Peugeot knocked off
Seagram's and then pounded Chivas
Regal for the right to meet Seagram's
for the league championship.
It was a best-2-out-of-3 series, but
Seagram's needed only 2 games to
dump the Carmen, severely ham-
pered by the loss of Carlos Branden-
burg in a recent auto accident and
Bob Baggott, who left for school in
the States.
Reyes poured in 43 points in the
opening night 91-75 win. On the
second night he was "held" to 32
points, but received scoring support
from Jeff Leon (30 points). Mike
Baranick and Wayne Heskew paced

Reyes needed a wheelbarrow to
take his top scorer, most valuable
player and individual team trophies

realm in 1964, Wally Murdoch and Jane Wilson, both varsity swimmers
for BHS last year, were awarded the Henry J. Grieser Outstanding Swimmer
Awards. The huge trophies, presented annually to the top swimmers in the
