THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal Museum


Vol. IV, No. 15 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, October 1, 1965

50-Year Award

Presented to

A. R. Morrison

Adrington R. Morrison, known to
his friends as "Skinny," is not a big
man but, during the years, he has
made up in ability and stamina what
he might have lacked in muscle and
During the 50 years he has been
employed by the Canal organization,
mostly as a clerk in the Cristobal
Marine Traffic Control Office, there
have been times when he has had
to use diplomacy and tact as well.
In recognition of his years of serv-
ice and a job well done, Morrison
was presented a 50-year' service
award and an Eminently Satisfactory
Extended Service Award with a $500
check by Canal Zone Governor
Robert J. Fleming, Jr., at the Port
Captain's Office in Cristobal.
Others present at the ceremony
honoring the veteran employee were
Capt. Mortimer J. Prince, USN,
Marine Director; Edward A. Doolan,
Personnel Director; Capt. Ernest B.
Rainier, Cristobal Port Captain;
Mr. E. E. Hamlin, Jr., Director of
Admeasurement and Captain Ken-
neth S. Roscoe, Assistant Port Cap-
tain; and a large group of fellow
In presenting the awards, Gov-
ernor Fleming remarked that like
many early employees, Morrison's
first job was as a "boy" earning 10
cents an hour. "But," the Governor
said, "he has been doing a man's job
during all these years. The Canal
organization is proud and grateful
to have him as one of its employees."
Morrison was born in Jamaica and
came to the Isthmus in 1905 when
his father was employed by the Isth-
mian Canal Commission on Canal
His first job as a "boy" was with
the Panama Railroad Cattle Industry
in 1915. His career with the Marine
Bureau started in 1920, when he was
hired as a messenger in the Cris-
tobal Port Captain's Office. Since
then he has been an office helper,
clerk, and teletypist. His present
position is marine traffic clerk.
Morrison recalled the early days
when there was no radio telephone
communication with ships arriving
at Cristobal and when messages to
and from arriving vessels had to be
received by signal. He said that
although he worked long shifts and
sometimes 7 days a week, the traffic
in pre-war days was not so heavy
and ships were not accepted for
transit after 3 p.m.
The war years were filled with
excitement and hard work, with ships
sometimes arriving the worse for
wear following enemy action in the
Atlantic. The day the United States
entered the war, Cristobal harbor
was full of Japanese ships, he re-
membered. The day the war ended,
it was full of British vessels.
Fellow employees say that Morri-
son was one of the few men who
could handle the grievances of the
rough and sometimes unruly deck-
His superiors testify that he has
been industrious, capable, accurate,
and reliable. In October 1962, he
received a superior service award for
sustained exemplary performance.
He does not plan to retire for
another year. But when he does, he
thinks he will do a little traveling.
All these years of watching the ships
go in and out of Cristobal Harbor
have given him itchy feet.


A new amendment to the Civil
Service Retirement Act approved by
President Johnson, in September,
provides for increased civil serv-
ice retirement annuities to persons
already retired and to employees
who retire on or before Novem-
ber 30, with annuities which com-
mence on or before December 1.
Annuities of employees who retire
within this period are increased by
6.1 percent effective December 1.
These employees also are entitled to
2 percent increase payable under
1962 legislation.

Locks Work

Ahead of
Locks floor and lateral culvert re-
pairs and exploratory drilling at
Miraflores Locks was ahead of
schedule this week as Canal Locks
forces opened the west lane to traffic
and unwatered the east lane.
The overhaul of the west lane was
completed Saturday and Miraflores
Locks was placed on a two-lane oper-
ation for Sunday and Monday only.
The work being done in the east
lane was started Tuesday and will
consist of drilling of the locks floor
and repairs and reinforcement of the
lateral culvert sections to prevent
occurrence of the type of failure that
occurred at Pedro Miguel Locks
earlier this year.
No serious defects were discovered
in the west lane and if conditions are
found to be similar in the east lane,
the overhaul should be completed by
October 16.
The two-lane operation during
Sunday and Monday permitted Canal
forces to clear the backlog of traffic
which was higher than predicted.

will get 8.1 percent in addition to
their regular annuities if they retire
by November 30. They'll get only
2 percent more if they retire during
December, 1 percent additional next
year and nothing extra after that.
The average employee will have
to work at least 2 years at a higher
salary to offset the 7.1 percent loss
in his annuity if he fails to retire
before November 30.
The bill also provided either a flat
$10 a month or 15 percent, which-
ever is smaller, for widows of pre-'48
The survivor annuity of each

qualified survivor of an employee
who retires on or before Novem-
ber 30 is increased by the same per-
centage as the employee's, namely
6 1 percent and 2 percent.
The survivor annuity payable to
the child or children of an employee
who dies in service at any time in
the future is increased by 6.1 per-
cent. A widow's annuity is not in-
creased if the employee dies in serv-
ice after November 30. The reason
for the difference is that a widow's
annuity is based on the employee's
high-5 average salary and therefore
reflects cost-of-living increase in

salary whereas children's annuities
are in fixed amounts which do not
reflect salary increases.
A reemployed retiree, whose salary
is being reduced by the amount of
his retirement annuity must take an
additional reduction in salary equal
to the increase in his annuity result-
ing from the new amendment. The
new monthly rate to be used for
determining the reduction in salary
can be computed by increasing the
old monthly rate by 6.1 percent and
rounding to the nearest dollar, or
11.1 percent if retirement was on an

The military agencies, just as the Panama Canal organization, are going
all out in this year's Canal Zone Area Combined Federal Campaign.
Together they are shooting for a total of $49,385.
The Air Force, Navy, and Southern Command have all accepted formal
campaign goals. While Army regulations do not permit Army commands
to accept campaign goals, the Federal Fund-Raising Coordinating Com-
mittee has set $31,000 as the amount they hope will be raised by the Army.
The word is that Army fund raisers, with payroll authorization for
uniformed personnel, will be aiming to top this "fair share."
Following are the goals for Federal agencies in the Canal Zone:
Panama Canal organization $114,890
U.S. Army -------------------------- 31,000

U.S. Navy 4,700

Kings Point Means Alma Mater to Many

Merchant Marine Academy Graduates Here

Balboa and Cristobal High School,
graduates who meet the physical and
educational requirements and are
interested in seafaring may consider
making a bid to prepare for this
career at the U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy at Kings Point, N.Y.
Entrance requirements to the U.S.
Merchant Marine Academy are sim-
ilar to those of the other Federal
academies. Application is made by
requesting nomination by a Senator
or a Representative. Each State is
allowed a quota for the entering year.
In the Canal Zone, 10 candidates
may be nominated by the Governor.
Two candidates and an alternate are
appointed each year. It is expected
that a class of 300 will be admitted
to the U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy this year.

Accredited College
Dedicated in September 1943, the
U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is
one of the five Federal academies.
Like its counterparts, it is an
accredited, 4-year degree-granting

college that trains selected young
men to become officers in the U.S.
Merchant Marine.
Though the primary aim of Kings
Point is to prepare young men for
leadership 'at sea, maritime careers
are not limited to actual operation
of ships. Kings Pointers may become
port captains, marine superinten-
dents, or advance to executive posi-
tions in the shipping industry.

On Transiting Ships
U.S. Merchant Marine Academy-
trained men are much in evidence
on ships transiting the Panama
Canal, sailing commercial vessels in
and out of every port in the world.
The master of the ship, the chief
engineer, or the pilot taking the
ship through the canal may be an
Academy alumnus.
Twenty-five Panama Canal pilots
are Kings Pointers. Approximately
22 others hold responsible positions
in the Canal organization; in the
Executive Planning Staff, Industrial,
Navigation or Community Services

AFROTC Cadet Ralph K. Frangioni, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph K.
Frangioni, Balboa, is presented the Commandant's "Can-Do" Award of
the Field Training Unit at The Citadel, S.C. A former Balboa High School
student, Cadet Frangioni is a member of the business administration
class '66, and a member of the varsity baseball team, the Cadet Chapel
Choir, the Citadel Museum Committee, and Alpha Phi Omega Fraternity.
He also is on the Dean's list for high scholastic standing. There are 191
cadets in the unit at The Citadel.

New Classes Starting

At Cristobal YMCA

The Cristobal Armed Services
YMCA Informal Education Program
will begin a new term Monday,
October 4. Three levels of conversa-
tional Spanish, five levels of English
and two levels of shorthand will be
included in the curriculum.

Classes will meet at the Cristobal
YMCA building located on Bolivar
Avenue, Cristobal. The Spanish and
shorthand classes will meet Monday
and Thursday evenings from 7 to
9 p.m. English classes will meet
Tuesday and Friday evenings from
7 to 9 p.m.

Registration forms are available
at the information counter. For

Julius Grigore, Jr., Acting Chief,
Industrial Division, who has had a
notable career as a designer and
developer of several modern amphi-
bious vehicles, and established a
record of business success. In 1961,
the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
recognized his progress with the
presentation of the award for "Out-
standing Business Achievement."
Kings Pointer Jerry W. Mitchell,
an attorney in the Office of General
Counsel and specialist in Admiralty
Law, is a 1946 graduate.
One in Research
Although not directly connected
with the Panama Canal organization,
Kings Pointer Dr. Ronald B. Mac-
Kenzie, until recently a MARU
epidemiologist, received the highest
award in the history of MARU.
Dr. MacKenzie participated in the
dramatic battle against hemorrhagic
fever, a highly lethal disease in
Bolivia, and in 1964 received the
"Order of the Condor of the Andes,"
one of Bolivia's highest decorations.
Dr. MacKenzie now is doing research
on the arbo viruses in the Rockefeller
Foundation at Yale University.
Another Kings Pointer, Eliot See,
the civilian astronaut who played an
important part in the back-up crew
for the 7-day Gemini flight recently,
is a 1949 graduate of the U.S. Mer-
chant Marine Academy. See, the
master of the liner United States, and
the President of the Calmar Steam-
ship Corp.-all U.S. Merchant Ma-
rine Academy graduates-were hon-
ored together this past summer with
"Outstanding Alumni Awards."
These are only a few of the Kings
Pointers who have gained pro-
minence aided by their Academy

on at least three different ships on
the world's trade routes. Approxi-
mately 750 cadets are in residence
while 250 are at sea at any one time.
For their third and fourth years, the
cadets return to their classrooms at
Kings Point.
Atomic engineering for marine
propulsion is taught at the Merchant
Marine Academy. A complete replica
of the N/S Savannah, the first com-
mercial atomic ship, is in operation
there and all engineering officers
assigned to the N/S Savannah are
trained at Kings Point.

Port is "Laboratory"
The Merchant Marine Academy
occupies 65 acres on the north shore
of Long Island, N.Y. Most of the
buildings were built from a single
master plan, making Kings Point one
of the most beautiful campuses in-
the Nation. Besides the conventional
classrooms at Kings Point, location
of the Academy provides it with the
vast Port of New York as a labor-
atory. And the "seven seas" also
serve as "classrooms" for the cadets.
Cadets admitted to the U.S. Mer-
chant Marine Academy are obligated
to serve as licensed officers in the
U.S. Merchant Marine for a period
of 3 years on graduation. Graduates
also are eligible for a Naval Reserve
Students desiring further informa-
tion on the U.S. Merchant Marine
Academy may contact Capt. J. J.
Bonanno, telephone 2-4693 or other
members of the Merchant Marine
Academy alumni. Captain Bonanno
is president of the Academy alumni
group on the Isthmus.

Atlantic Side Streets

Named First, in 1907

Way back in 1907 a resolution by
the municipality of Cristobal pro-
vided for the naming and numbering
of streets in that town. But records
show it wasn't until 1917 that action
was taken on the designation of
streets and roads in the Pacific side
of the Canal Zone in order to facil-
itate locating houses-which was
rather confusing at that time.
It was suggested at that time that
names descriptive of the streets or
localities be adopted and streets got
names like "Sleepy Hollow," "Cot-
tage Court," "Tivoli Road," and
Balboa Road."
The only roads named for indi-
viduals were a group of streets on
Balboa flats that were named for



Capt. Mortmer J. Prince, USN,
Marine Director, and Chairman of
the Committee on Appontments, has
announced that Canal Zone Gov-
ernor Robert J.. Fleming, Jr., can
nominate candidates this year to be
selected by competitive examination
for appointment to the following
U.S. Military Academy-1 Vacancy
Six nominations may be made for
this vacancy. To be eligible for
nomination by the Governor of the
Canal Zone, the nominee must be
between 17 and 22 years of age, son
of a U.S. citizen civilian residing in
the Canal Zone, or of a U.S. citizen
civilian officer or employee of the
United States Government or the
Panama Canal Company residing in
the Republic of Panama.
U.S. Merchant Marine Academy-2
Ten candidates will be nominated.
To be eligible for nomination by the
Governor of the Canal Zone, the
applicant must be the son of a U.S.
citizen resident of the Canal Zone,
or the son of a U.S. citizen employee
of the U.S. Government or Panama
Canal Company residing in the
Republic of Panama.
The Governor of the Canal Zone
has no authority to make nomina-
tions for appointment to the Coast
Guard Academy. Interested persons
are admitted on their own applica-
tion to the Secretary of the Treasury.
There are no vacancies at the U.S.
Air Force Academy or the U.S. Naval
Academy in 1966.
Students interested in applying for
nomination should contact their
counselors for further information.

Presidents, such as Roosevelt, Taft,
Wilson, and Washington.
In 1920, a plan for naming res-
idential streets in Ancon, Balboa
Heights and Balboa was approved.
The plan gave names of many old
Canal settlements and neighboring
localities to streets.
It gave the names of President
Roosevelt and Senator Morgan (who
was chairman of a Canal Committee
in the early days) to two important
streets at that time, and provided for
naming streets in Balboa in honor
of Panama Canal employees who had
lost their lives in the military and
naval services during World War I.
This explains such names as Barneby,
Holden, Pyle, Dohrman, Plank,
Clinton, Carr, Pearson, and Pendle-
ton, all Canal employees who died
in service.
In 1940 when Canal Zone towns
were being enlarged and new towns
established, it was decided to name
streets in the towns after members
of the Isthmian Canal Commission.
Thus, in Diablo you will find Walker
Avenue, Sibert Street, Shontz, and
Rousseau Streets.
Streets in other areas are named
after local trees, birds, fruit, flowers,
and shrubs. Old towns of the con-
struction era are commemorated by
streets such as Empire, Gorgona,
Las Cascadas, and Tavernilla.

Red Cross

All Red Cross volunteers of the
Gorgas Hospital Unit are invited to

Portrait of a Dead Heiress is the
most recent suspense novel by well-
known Inner Sanctum Mystery
writer Thomas B. Dewey, whose
famous Chicago sleuth, Mac, is con-
sidered by a famous mystery author-
ity to be "one of fiction's best private
detectives." Fans and aficionados
who read this book will probably
agree with this evaluation.
In "Surprise! Surprise!" Agatha
Christie presents a collection of
mystery stories with unexpected end-
ings. In each of them she leads the
reader gently down the garden path,
planting clues right and left while
she diverts his attention elsewhere.
And each conclusion comes as a sur-
prise, as logical as it is unexpected.
Favorite sleuth Hercule Poirot
appears in several of the stories and
in every one of them the reader can
match wits with one of the most
ingenious plot creators writing today.

Alert Steward

On Cristobal

Foils Hurricane
Hurricane Betsy almost had an
effect on a Canal Zone wedding
reception, but was foiled by the chief
steward on the SS Cristobal.
The wedding reception was for
Mrs. Esther K. Bond and Lloyd E.
Stevens, who were married by the
Reverend E. C. Webster at St. Mar-
garet's Episcopal Church in Mar-
garita on Saturday, September 18 at
noon. Following the ceremony, the
bride and bridegroom planned to
receive their friends on board the
SS Cristobal, prior to the vessel's
departure for New Orleans.
The wedding cake was to have
been baked by a firm in New Orleans
and delivered to the vessel on Sep-
tember 13, 4 days after hurricane
Betsy hit that gulf port. Frank Buck,
chief steward on the SS Cristobal,
received a telephone call from the
bakery on sailing day advising him
that the bakery was "under water"
and no wedding cake was available.
To save the situation, the chief
steward contacted his wife, who
made a hasty purchase of a miniature
bride and bridegroom and got them
to her husband before sailing time.
The SS Cristobal bakery did the rest,
and a traditional wedding cake was
a highlight of the wedding reception.
Lloyd Stevens is employed by the
Panama Canal Power Branch and
Mrs. Stevens works for the U.S.
Army at Corozal. On their return to
the Isthmus, they will reside on
Hospital Road in Corozal.

A benefit series of three games
played between the Armed Forces
All Stars and the Cyrca Basketball

must substantiate their qualifying
test performance in a second exam-
ination, submit recommendations by
their school, and fulfill routine
requirements. All merit scholars for
1966 will be selected from the
finalist group.
Each merit scholarship is a 4-year
award covering the undergraduate
college years. The winner's stipend
is tailored to his need, up to a maxi-
mum of $6,000 for the 4 years in
most cases. For the student already
financially able to attend the college
of his choice, the award is $400 for
the 4 years. Winners choose their
own colleges and courses of study.
More than 11,000 students won
Merit Scholarships in the first decade
of the program, which was founded
in 1955 with grants from the Ford
Foundation and the Carnegie Corp.
of New York. About $42 million in
financial assistance to merit scholars
and their colleges has been expended
or committed through the program
thus far.
High school grades, creative
accomplishments, leadership qual-
ities, extracurricular activities, and
school citizenship of the students are
evaluated, along with the test scores,
in selecting merit scholars.

Appearing with them will be four
of their students in the pre-teen age
group who will dance the fads so
popular with the young of -today.
The Howard brothers, Terry and
Tracy, will be partnered by Jean
Smith and Jackie Parker from the
Atlantic side.
Another act will be the Gran
Dary, magician, who will demon-
strate his skill in making things
appear and disappear. Ed Webb, a
skillful pantominist and Dave Con-
stable, well-known commentator also
will be on the program. Dave Con-
stable will be the master of cer-
emonies. Five talented young men,
George Turner, Glenn Miller, Donny
Adams, David McDowell, and Dave
Larrison who call themselves the
Tempests will delight their friends
and fans by playing several of their
latest numbers. This combo has com-
bined talents and efforts into devel-
oping what is now considered the
tops in exceptional style and rhythm.
The Tempests will play at the
New Balboa Teen Club for their
weekly dance this evening (Octo-

annuity commencing on or before
October 1, 1956. The new rate is
effective December 1, 1965. The
additional reduction in salary is
effective from that date or the date
of reemployment, whichever is later.
An employee who is retiring must
be separated or his pay must cease
on or about December 30 to receive
the 2 percent increase in his annuity
under the 1962 adjustment provision.
The new amendment does not
change this provision.
Annuities which commence be-
tween January 1 and December 31
of this year are increased by 2 per-
cent, and separation or final pay on
December 30 will support the award
of an annuity commencing Decem-
ber 31 and the employee will receive
a full month's credit. If the em-
ployee is separated under conditions
which require his annuity to begin
on January 1, 1966, he will be
entitled to the 1 percent rather than
the 2 percent increase.

Gente en la Noticia

Daniel Guerrero N., aseador en el Bar Two Oceans de la Casa de flHuspedes Tivoli, es un hombre humilde y de
poco hablar, pero siempre consagrado a su trabajo. Aqui lo vemos en plena labor de dejar inmaculadas todas
las dependencias interiores del bar. El brillo de los diferentes utensilios es la mejor prueba de lo concienzudo
que es Daniel Guerrero al desempefiar sus labores. Naci6 en la ciudad de Panamfi y curs6 su escuela primaria
en Sim6n Bolivar. Nunca se ha casado y cumple con sus servicios religiosos en la Iglesia Luterana del Redentor,
en Balboa. Desde muy joven entr6 al servicio del Canal de Panama y se encuentra sumamente satisfecho. Nos
dice que el trato que le dan sus superiores es inmejorable y que el moment en que mis satisfecho se ha sen-
tido, fue cuando recibi6 su certificado de 20 afios de servicios con la organizaci6n del Canal. "Sobre todo, me
senti satisfecho de haber hecho bien mi trabajo durante todos esos afios", termin6 dici6ndonos.

Ignatius C. Inglis, camarero en la Casa de Huespedes Tivoli, desde hace
25 afios, es el prototipo de la profesi6n que ha abrazado. Siempre amable
y atento a complacer el menor gusto de los clients que a diario llenan la
Cafeteria, aqui lo sorprendimos Ilevando dos sabrosos pasteles de coco.
Naci6 en Santa Lucia, Indias Occidentales y alli curs6 studios hasta ter-
minar su secundaria. En 1931 llegaba a tierras istmeiias y hasta 1940 se
dedic6 a ser camarero professional independiente. Ese afio entr6 a la Casa
de Hu6spedes Tivoli y desde entonces ha permanecido alli. Tiene dos
hijos: Gloria, de 18 afics y Antonio, de 16. Este ultimo, estudia Refrigera-
ci6n y Acondicionamiento de Aire, en el Instituto TomAs Alva Edison.
Hablamos de sus diversiones y nos dice que le gusta much el cine, la nata-
ci6n y echar sus paseitos al interior en su autom6vil. De los clients que le
ha tocado tender, recuerda a Lana Turner, CUsar Romero y al gran pia-
nista Arthur Rubinstein. Dos veces sirvi6 a la Reina Isabel de Inglaterra
y al Duque de Edimburgo. "Pero la propina mis grande me la dio Fulgen-
cio Batista", nos dice medio en secret. Le pregunta'mos que cuAnto fue,
pero nos contest: "eso es secret professional .

Por alla por 1907 la municipali-
dad de Crist6bal expidi6 una resolu-
ci6n destinada a darle nombre y
niumero a las calls en esa poblaci6n.
Pero los archives demuestran que no
fue sino hasta 1917 cuando se toma-
ron los pasos para designer calles y
caminos en el sector Pacifico de la
Zona del Canal para facilitar la ubi-
caci6n de casas-que estaba un poco(
confusa para entonces.
Se sugiri6 entonces que se adop-
taran nombres descriptivos de las
calls o localidades, y las calls reci-
bieron nombres como "Sleepy Hol-
low", "Cottage Court", "Tivoli
Road" y "Balboa Road".
Los finicos caminos que llevaron
nombres de personas fueron un
grupo de calls en los rellenos de
Balboa, que recibieron nombres de
Presidentes, tales como Roosevelt,
Taft, Wilson y Washington.
En 1920 se aprob6 un plan para
darle nombre a las calls residencia-
les en Anc6n, Balboa Heights y
Balboa. El plan dio nombres de
muchos viejos pueblos y localidades
cercanas del Canal a las calles.
Dio entonces los nombres de Presi-
dente Roosevelt y Senador Morgan
(quien era president de la Comisi6n
del Canal en los primeros dias) a dos
importantes calles, y proporcion6

nombres en Balboa en honor de
empleados del Canal de PanamA que
habian perdido sus vidas en los ser-
vicios militares y navales durante la
I Cuerra Mundial. Esto explica tales
nombres como Barneby, Holden,
Pyle, Dohrman, Plank, Clinton, Carr,
Pearson y Pendleton, todos emplea-
dos del Canal que murieron pres-
tando servicio.
En 1940 cuando los pueblos de la
Zona del Canal estaban siendo en-
sanchados y se establecian nuevos
poblados, se decidi6 nombrar las
calls en los poblados en honor de
miembros de la Comisi6n del Canal
Istmefio. Por eso encontrar't usted en
Diablo la Avenida Walker, Calle
Sibert, Shontz y Rousseau.
Las calls en otras Areas tienen
nombres de Arboles, pajaros, frutas,
flores y arbustos. Los viejos pueblos
de la era de la construcci6n son re-
cordados con calls como Empera-
dor, Gorgona, Las Cascadas y Taver-

La Celanese Corporation of Amer-
ica, de los Estados Unidos, ha hecho
nna cuantiosa inversion para construir
una nueva fdbrica en Colombia para
producer, por intermedio de su sub-
sidiaria, la Celanese Colombiana,

much suerte fue transformado en

He aqui la historic. La Sra. Nelli
Collett rescat6 al tarro en discusi6n
del Atico en una vieja casa de campo
en Iowa, y con sumo cuidado lo trajo
a la Zona del Canal dentro de un

cuenta del pasajero. Y nuestro tarro
de galletitas, sin tapadera, con unas
cuantas rajaduras y necesitando pin-
tura a gritos, fue arreglado-con gu-
tapercha y pintura. Y en lugar de
tener tapadera se llen6 de bellas
Todos admiramos al tarro de galle-
titas vuelto loromotora en la cafete-

Hay un tipo especial de cin-
cel para coda trabajo. Siempre
deber6 seleccionar el m6s co-
rrecto y observer su condici6n.

Use gafas en todo moment. Use una panta-
Ila para evitar lesionar a otros. Siempre que
sea possible, sostenga el cincel con la palma
hacia arriba y mantenga el chafl6n del filo
de piano contra el trabajo. Mantenga la
vista en la herramienta durante el mismo.

Los Cinceles Pueden ser Seguros
Los cinceles, de igual manera que otras herramientas de mano para
cortar metales, son fabricados en diferentes tamafios y formas para
ajustarse a las necesidades de los diferentes trabajos en que deben
ser utilizados. Cuando se emplea el cincel adecuado y en la forma
correct, result ser una herramienta segura, de lo contrario puede
Ilegar a causar lesiones graves.
A continuaci6n incluimos los puntos principles que deben tenerse
en cuenta en el empleo y mantenimiento de los cinceles.
Para el Empleo
* Use siempre gafas de protecci6n al utilizar o al afilar un cincel.
* Sostenga el cincel entire el pulgar y los dedos restantes, c6n la
palma de la mano hacia la cabeza del cincel.
* Nunca golpee el borde afilado de un cincel.
* Proteja a otras personas contra las particular volantes de metal,
por medio de pantallas adecuadas.
* Use tenazas o agarraderas para sostener el cincel cuando 6ste sea
golpeado por un ayudante.
* El material que vaya a ser cortado debe estar firmemente sujetado.
* Un cincel debe encontrarse en sitio seguro al no estar en uso.
* Deben tomarse precauciones especiales, para evitar chispas, al
usar cinceles en presencia de materials inflamables o de polvos
y vapores explosives.
Para el Mantenimiento
* Los cinceles estAn disefiados solamente para cortar metales mis
blandos que los metals empleados en su fabricaci6n.
* Nunca use un cincel con "cabeza de hongo" o uno que no haya
sido adecuadamente templado o afilado.
* Solamente use cinceles cuando se encuentren limpios y en buenas
* Siempre use el centro de la hoja para cortar, no use una punta
o esquina solamente.
* Un cincel siempre debe tener el border de la cabeza ligeramente
redondeado, para evitar que tome la forma de cabeza de hongo.
* No debe usarse un cincel que haya llegado a congelarse, hasta
tanto no haya sido calentado por lo menos a 200C.
* Los cinceles deben ser afilados lentamente en una piedra de esme-
rilar, usando un refrigerant para evitar su recalentamiento.

Trabajando juntos, la Direcci6n
de Salubridad y la Sociedad del
CAncer estAn iniciando un nuevo
servicio a la comunidad: Una Clinica
para la Investigaci6n del CAncer.
Al principio trabajarA solamente
con las mujeres, en la Clinica de Gi-
necologia del Hospital Gorgas. Se
ha escogido a las mujeres para este
program inicial, porque las estadis-
ticas indican, y aqui se ha compro-
bado, que los cAnceres que mis fre-
cuentemente se encuentran, los del
seno y de los 6rganos p61lvicos, son
tambien aquellos que mas fAcilmen-
te se diagnostican temprano. Cuando
son tratados temprano, los pacientes
con canceres uterinos y cervicales,
sobreviven en la gran mayoria de
los casos.
El cancer uterino, que puede ser
detectado por medios tales como
biopsia, curetaje, exAmenes p61lvicos
y diferentes pruebas, podrA ser casi
eliminado como cosa de muerte para
las mujeres, si ellas se examinan fre-
Muchos de estos cnceres en las
mujeres no produce sintomas tem-
pranos. La nueva clinic opera con
mujeres que no tienen sintomas, y
que deben examinarse peri6dicamen-
te. Las mujeres que tienen sintomas
tales como hemorragias irregulares,
descargas o dolores, deberian exami-
narse en las clinics regulars inme-
diatamente sientan tales anormali-
El nuevo servicio, cuyo horario y
numero de tel6fonos seran anuncia-
dos mAs tarde, tambidn tendrA radio-
grafias pulmonares, exAmenes de la
sangre, de la orina, exAmenes fisicos
completes, inclusive el examen de la
pelvis y pruebas varias para la detec-
cion del cAncer.
Cuando todo haya sido organiza-
do, las citas se harin por tel6fono a
la Clinica para la Investigaci6n del
CAncer, cuyo oficinista se encargarA
de poner en march el trabajo de
laboratorio. Apenas esto se haya
terminado, el oficinista concertarA la
cita en la Clinica de Ginecologia.
En vista de que las mu'eres que
pidan este servicio no tendran que-
jas especificas, las citas se concer-
tarin por conveniencia mutua, del
mn'dico y de la paciente, sin inter-
ferir con el servicio a los pacientes
de la Clinica de Ginecologia.
Este servicio sera part del pro-
grama de salubridad pfiblica que

patrocinan conjuntamente la Direc-
ci6n de Salubridad y la Sociedad del
Cancer, a trav6s de los servicios de
ginecologia del Hospital Gorgas. En
el future cercano se oirA hablar mu-
cho de esto, a muchas personas auto-
rizadas. El Dr. Bernard K. Levin y
el Dr. I. J. Strumpf, quien todavia
permanecerA en el Istmo por corto
tiempo, merecen especial mencion.
Ambos han luchado tesoneramente
para conseguir el establecimiento de
la mencionada clinic.
