A Green Carpet
A green carpet was rolled out for
Clifford L. Green, by the Supply and

the retail operation of that unit.
Standing on a bright green carpet
loaned for the occasion by the
Supply Division, Green received
special recognition for his many
years of service when Gov. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr., presented him a
50-year service certificate and an
eminently satisfactory extended serv-
ice award. He also got a check for
$500 and a key to the Panama Canal
The ceremony took place in the
office of the General Manager of the
Supply Division in the presence of
Mrs. Green, officials of the Supply
and Community Service Bureau and
scores of fellow workers.
L. A. Ferguson, Supply and Com-
munity Service Director and Green's
Bureau boss, introduced him to the

Planning Staff

Engineer Cited

An unusual honor went last week
to Gerard J. Welch, industrial engi-
neer on the Panama Canal Executive
Planning Staff.
He was notified by the Board of
Trustees of the National Institute of
Public Affairs that he had been cer-
tified as a Fellow in the National
Institute of Public Affairs.
The certification of this selection
was officially forwarded through the
Civil Service Commission to Gov.
Robert J. Fleming, Jr., who awarded
the recognition to Welch in an
informal ceremony in the Board
Room of the Administration Building
at Balboa Heights.
Also present were Mrs. Welch,
who accompanied her husband to
Chicago for the school year 1964-65,
and a number of fellow employees
of the Executive Planning Staff.
As one of the 40 candidates from
the entire Government service to be
selected for a Career Education
Award sponsored by the Civil Serv-
ice Commission and financed by
the Ford Foundation, Welch was
accepted in 1964 by the University
of Chicago for a year's graduate
The Career Education Awards pro-
gram for public service executives,
employees of the Federal, State,
and municipal government agencies,
started in 1963. Welch was recom-
mended in 1964 by the Canal organi-
zation for the Governor's nomina-
tion. The study is intended to help
advance careers of able young ad-
ministrators, and improve public
service by aiding the development

Let's Be S'Pacific
The Pacific Ocean went into
the Atlantic and then back into
the Pacific.
If that sound like a massive
movement of water-or as if we'd
flipped-read on.
THIS Pacific Ocean is a
Swedish motorship 500 feet long
and with a beam of 66 feet.
A new ship which made its
first transit Pacific to Atlantic in
August, it transited again Atlantic
to Pacific this week.
Like we said . .



Canal Zone Governor Robert J.
Fleming, Jr., has extended congratu-
lations to the Republic of Panama on
the 62d Anniversary of the nation's
independence and urged residents of
the Canal Zone to participate in the
observance of the November 3d
The people of Panama have played
a vital part in the operation and
maintenance of the Panama Canal.
"The people of the United States and
the Canal Zone are in basic agree-
ment with the people of Panama on
the aspiration for a life that offers
more opportunity for economic
advancement, widening horizons of
social achievement and continuing
freedom under a Democratic govern-
ment," Governor Fleming stated.
The Governor said that Novem-
ber 3 is a day for all to appreciate the
history of Panama and to salute the
Republic on the commemoration of
its birth.

Nov. 4 Parade Route

Avenue. There will be a brief
ceremony, including a flag salute, at

Blood Provides Body's

Cells with "Supplies"

Blood is something we think about
hardly at all-until it's needed. Then
it can become a matter of life and
death. A program to identify blood
types is being developed in the Latin
American communities of the Canal
Zone, sponsored by the Latin Amer-
ican Civic Councils in cooperation
with the Gorgas Blood Bank. It will
put on file hundreds of blood types.
A central office, manned by volun-
teers, will be able to tell the Blood
Bank where to locate possible donors,
and in the case of rare types of blood,
quick access to this information is
This is one of a series of articles
on the purpose of giving blood, its
chemistry, characteristics, and use.

Blood provides the cells of the
body with some of the supplies
necessary to get their individual jobs
done. Each cell requires oxygen.
Blood carries this oxygen from the
lungs to the cells. At the same time,
the breakdown products of the cells,
comparable to waste products of
combustion in a home heating sys-
tem, are discharged to be taken from
the cells to the organs of elimination,

including the skin, lungs, kidneys,
and liver.
Many of the tissues of the body
are regulated in activity by hor-
mones. In this day and age, there is
increasing awareness by the public
of the function of hormones. The
pituitary gland is the master gland
which puts out hormones which
regulate other glands. For example,
it secretes a hormone which controls
the speed with which the thyroid
gland works.
The blood transports this thyroid-
regulating hormone from the pitui-
tary to the thyroid. As you can see,
blood makes up the transportation
system without which the many com-
plex structures of our body could
not exist.
To perform these functions, blood
is pumped by the heart through the
body in a complex system of arteries,
veins, and capillaries. We are told
that this network totals some 100,000
miles. We don't know how this was
measured, but accept it as coming
from good authority. It is believable,
though, when you pause to realize
that 5,000 capillaries laid side by
side would span only 1 inch.

one of the children, as six skate-
boards turned to ashes.

"...the Precious Capacity

To Live with Purpose"

President Lyndon B. Johnson calls upon all Americans to consider
the aims and goals of education, a process that "endows men not only
with the ability to make a living, but with the precious capacity to
live with purpose."
In a proclamation marking American Education Week, Novem-
ber 7-13, the President said that our hopes for the future rest "in our
schools and colleges." He said that education holds "our highest
aspirations for our children, for our country and for the world.
It brings benefits without limits. It is the richest legacy this generation
can bequeath to the next; upon it depends fulfillment for our Nation
and for every American citizen."
Because of this, the President said, benefits of educational system
must flow freely and abundantly to all citizens. He urged a striving
toward this goal so that the needs of the Nation for education can
be fulfilled.
To further the purpose of this week, the President urges all parents
to acquaint themselves with both the problems and the promise of
their schools. And he urges each community to study the needs of
its schools and to use "all the resources at its command" to make
equal educational opportunity a "reality for all Americans."

R.S.V.P. Murder is the latest of
40 mystery novels by Mignon G.
Eberhart. This one has all the fam-
iliar ingredients-a wealthy and aris-
tocratic family with numerous skele-
tons in the closet, beautiful girls,
handsome young men, and wise de-
tectives. Even the weather matches
the moods of the various suspects
and adds a sense of suspense to the
story. In addition to all this, the
book is skillfully written and well
plotted and will provide good read-
ing for a spare evening.
In The Bloody Battle for Suri-
bachi, Richard Wheeler gives a first-
hand account of the struggle for
Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima-and
thus recreates in vivid detail one of
the most stirring episodes in the his-
tory of the U.S. Marines. Wheeler,
who was a corporal in the famous
3d Platoon, now is a freelance writer.

Kennedy, by Theodore C. Soren-
son, a former special assistant to the
President, has been so much in the
news that there is little that need
be said about it except that copies of
the book now are available to bor-
rowers in the Canal Zone Library.
It is a well-written, apparently
factual, and extremely well-docu-
mented account which probably will
be included among the best contem-
prtrary accounts of a fascinating
period in the history of the United


aire. All this adds up to a good who-

Lockridge has written independently

Halloween can mean more fun than ever both for Canal Zone youngsters like these at one of last year's parties
and for needy children in many parts of the world through UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund. Coins
collected on Halloween night go to buy food, medicine, and clothing so that other boys and girls can have
happier lives too. At 4:30 p.m. today representative children from participating organizations will appear on
SCN television, with a singing group from St. Mary's Mission School. Units taking part in the project this year
include the Margarita Union Church, a youth group in Gatun, the Cathedral of St. Luke, the Jewish Welfare
Board, St. Mary's Mission School, the Balboa Union Church, the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force.


Job opportunities today are higher
and will continue to climb for the
well-trained men and women who
stay ahead of competition, men from
seven different fields told members
of the Cristobal High School senior
class "Workshop for Career Develop-
ment and Planning."
Speakers at the workshop program
were invited by the Cristobal High
School Guidance Counselors after a
survey of vocational choices of the
class of 1966.
Paul L. Beck, principal of Cris-
tobal High School, stressed that the
speakers were well qualified in their
vocational fields and, in some cases,
had not feared change of "switching

2 months. He commended him on
his intimate knowledge of the retail
store operations and his excellent
customer relations. Despite 50 years
of listening to customer's com-
plaints, Green, he said, had remained
courteous and well-liked.
One of the things particularly re-
membered about him, Ferguson said,
was the speed with which he could
remove coupons from commissary
books. In the days when commissary
books were legal tender in the Canal
retail stores, Green could take care
of more customers than anyone else
mainly because of the manner in
which he flipped the commissary
book into the air and extracted the
right amount of coupons to the
penny. He never failed. At least no
one ever discovered an error.
Governor Fleming congratulated
him on his long service and then
presented the service certificate and
service award. The check for $500
was handed by the Governor to
Mrs. Green.
Green was born in Kingston,
Jamaica, but came to the Isthmus as
a child. He was employed in 1915
as a "boy" in the former Commissary
Division. He was promoted to a
salesman in 1920 and has been work-
ing continuously with the Supply
Division ever since.
In addition to his present job, he
has worked as a salesman, foreman,
assistant store manager, manager,
and leader laborer, all in retail stores
on the Atlantic side. During the last
war, lie was manager of the former
Coco Solito Commissary.
Mr. and Mrs. Green live in Rain-
how City. He plans to retire in
June 1966.

Division, spoke on the "The Cul-
tivated Man" or "how to stay ahead
of competition" in the business world
today. Grigore emphasized the "im-
portance of immediate initiation of
a lifelong, self improvement program
which i's not necessarily institute-
connected." He said this is achieved
by intense reading of non-fiction and
of the biographies and works of great
men and their deeds; through asso-
ciation with people of high ideals,
and by perpetual hard work and self-

He'll Manage Better
"The Cultivated Man" will be
subject to many of the same human
errors and failings common to all of
us, but he will be exposed to less of
them and to those that encompass
him, he will know how to logically
manage them better than most,"
said Grigore.
Dr. Patrick D. Tisdale of Coco
Hospital spoke on "Opportunities in
the Medical Field" and stated that
one who pursues a career in medicine
should like to work with people and
be interested in the functions of the
human body. Dr. Tisdale told the
class that anyone thinking of be-
coming a doctor should be willing to
study the rest of his life. He pointed
out careers in other branches of
medicine, such as nurses, technicians,
and public health workers and said
there is a need for male nurses and
female doctors.

Expansion Means Jobs
Arthur Sumner, Pan American
Airways manager in Colon, pointed
out the tremendous potential for new
jobs in the airline industry. Sumner
said, "job opportunities are higher
today and are likely to stay that way
in the foreseeable future." The
expanding field of air travel, which
will be doubled by 1970, has created
many jobs: sales engineers, air cargo
managers, research analysts, auto-
mation engineers and economists,
pointed out Sumner.
Dr. Horace Loftin, Florida State
University, declared that in science
one thing evident from the start is
that one never stops learning. He
said that a real scientist is always
glad when a new day begins and
sorry when the day is ended. "You
are either a good scientist or not a
scientist," said Dr. Loftin.
Capt. Dan Smith, Special Forces,
U.S. Army, spoke on the Special
Forces aspect of the Army, illus-
trating his lecture with slides show-
ing the many types of work the Spe-
cial Forces are called upon to do in

Be High

assisting others with their technical
knowledge and skills.
Robert Risberg, Chief, Water and
Laboratories Branch, speaking on
"Professional Engineers," defined an
engineer as a person educated in
mathematics and the physical scien-
ces; as a creator of new methods and
new products. He told the seniors
that there are now a half million
engineers in the United States and
as technology becomes more com-
plex, more engineers will be needed.
He emphasized the importance of
scores made on college entrance tests
before entering this field. He said
that one half of the students entering
engineering courses drop out before
completing them.
L. B. Burham, Chief, Employee
Utilization and Development Staff,
discussed "Office Type Work and
How To Get Hired." "Statistics say
that more people are going to be in
office type work than in any other
kind of business. The office force
remains as the core of any business
and there are now between 18 and
20 million employed in office type
jobs in the United States" said
Burnham, "and more are being
created. Skills required for office
type work are not only valuable in
getting jobs, but are valuable skills
in any activity in which you find
yourself," he pointed out.

La sangre es algo en lo que
nunca pensamos . hasta que
tenemos necesidad de ella. Y en-
tonces puede convertirse en asun-
to de vida o muerte. Un program
para identificar los tipos de san-
gre se estd desarrollando en las
corn nidades latinoamericanas de
la Zona del Canal, patrocinado
por los Consejos Civicos Latino-
americanos, en cooperacitn con
el Banco de Sangre del Hospital
Gorgas. Se clasificardn centena-
res de tipos de sangre. Una ofici-
na central, operada por volunta-
rios, hard possible que el Banco
de Sangre sepa donde localizar a
los posibles donantes, ya que en
casos de tipos raros de sangre, es
vital el rdpido access a esta infor-
Para que se entienda el prop6-
sito de donar sangre, su composi-
cidn qulmica, caracteristicas y
uso, la siguiente informaci6n ha
sido suministrada para una series
de articulos en el SPILL-WAY.

La sangre prove alas c61ulas del
cuerpo de algunos de los suministros
necesarios para poder realizar su tra-
bajo individual. Todas las celulas ne-
cesitan oxigeno. La sangre lleva este
oxigeno de los pulmones a las celu-
las. Al mismo tiempo, los products
de descomposici6n de las celulas,

comparable a los gases de escape de
la combustion, en un sistema de ca-
lefacci6n domestic, son descargados
de las c61ulas y llevados por la san-
gre, a los 6rganos de eliminaci6n,
que incluyen la piel, los pulmones,
los rifiones y el higado.
Muchos de los tejidos del cuerpo
son regulados por hormones en sus
actividades. En esta Apoca, el pfblico
se da cuenta cada vez mAs de la fun-
ci6n de las hormones. La glandula
pituitaria es la glbndula principal
que envia las honnonas a regular
otras glandulas. Por ejemplo, secret
una hormona que control la veloci-
dad con que trabaja la glAndula
La sangre transport esta hormo-
na reguladora de la tiroides, desde
la pituitaria hasta esa glandula.
Como pueden ver, la sangre consti-
tuye el sistema de transport sin
el cual muchas estructuras complejas
de nuestro cuerpo dejarian de existir.
Para cumplir estas funciones, la
sangre es bombeada por el coraz6n
a travbs del cuerpo, por medio de un
complejo sistema de arteries, venas
y vasos capilares. Se calcula que esta
v Ista rev es tic n1a on00;un uuuuu--s

midiendose cada equipo cuatro veces
en cada mitad. Los dias de juego
serin los lunes, mi6rcoles y viernes,
con doubles juegos los viernes.
La Liga Femenina de Softball del
Athintico esta abierta para todas las
muchachas de la Zona del Canal,
Repdblica de Panama, y tambi6n de
las Fuerzas Armadas.
Aunque ha estado operando du-
rante 3 afios solamente, esta liga
esta considerada en ambos lados del
Istmo como la mejor.
Los directors de la liga que fue-
ron elegidos para la pr6xima tempo-
rada son: Victor H. Archbold, presi-
dente; Fausto Andrade, primer vice-
presidente; Claudia Davis, segunda
vicepresidenta; Arvis Brady, secre-
taria; y Elizabeth Collins, tesorera.
Todas las personas que deseen di-
rigir equipos y jugadoras que quic-
ran participar en esta liga, pueden
ponerse en contact con las siguien-
tes personas: V. H. Archbold, tel6-
fono Crist6bal 3-2441; R. Escalona,
3-2917; E. Russell, 38-7-3805; y
C. Parris, 3-1380.
La liga estti integrada por cuatro
equipos de la pasada temporada,
pero en la pr6xima habrA seis.
Los otros patrocinadores de equi-
pos son la Destiladora Nacional, S.A.,
el Sr. Dany Fong, de Col6n, y la
Cerveceria Nacional.

Unidos, el Ogden, ocupa la mayor parte de la cimara de las Esclusas de Miraflores, en moments en que se
dirigia la nave hacia el sur, en su primer viaje por el Canal de Panama. Construido en los Astilleros de la Arma-

hombres, siendo su armamento de 8 cafiones de 3 pulgadas. El barco, de 13.900 toncladas, puede alcanzar velo-
cidades de 2:3 nudos. Lo grisAcco de la fotografia no es debido a mala exposici6n. La foto fue tomada con bas-
tante oscuridad, a las 6:30 p.m., con exposici6n de 15 segundos y sin tripode. Las luces estaban encendidas,

Herramientas de Borde Cortante
Dentro del grupo de herramientas de mano se cuenta con un buen
numero de herramientas cortantes o que tienen filo, fabricadas espe-
cialmente para trabajar materials blandos comto la madera, plisticos,
caucho y algunos metales. Tales herramientas tienen una grand varie-
dad de formas y de tamailos lo misnmo que infinidad de aplicaciones.
Sin embargo, todas ellas tienen una cosa en comtin, todas ellas tienen
filo y las que estin hechas para cortar pueden cortar, no solo el mate-
rial que se debe trabajar, sino los dedos o las inanos del trabaj:dor,
cuando son empleadas de nianera incorreecta.
La inica forma de lograr utilizar estas herraiientas sin que cause
lesiones es garantizando mantenimiento, aliniacelnaiento y uso
apropiado de todas las herramientas que tengaln bordes afilados.
Adeinas del riesgo de lesi6n a los trabajadores tainbiein se cuenta
con los riesgos de dafio de las herramientas y del material que set
estai trabajando.
Los bordes descubiertos de las herrainientas afiladas tales com0o
guadafias, hacehas, serruchos, navajas y artefactos similares son un
riesgo y pueden ocasionar lesiones graves al scr usadas, al ser alina-
cenadas y al ser transportadas, ya sea eln la maino, en veh ienlos o en
Las herramnientas deben eonservarse 'icen aguzadas y en biienas
condiciones. El dafio causado al border por mala manipulaciOn, por
caidas y por ni a anacenainiento, crean la necesidad de afilarlas con
mayor frecuencia de la nornial y de repararlas. Una herrainienta en
malas condiciones es un riesgo de accident.
* Se recomienda la selecei6n y uso de herramientas de btuena
* Las reparaciones y el imanteliiniento deben ser ejecutados por
personal capacitado.
* El uso correct debe ser garantizado por medio de adiestramiento
y de supervision.
* Los bordes cortantes deben star resguardados y protegidos en
todo nlln0ellto cuand(o no esttin eln uso..
* Para tal fin deben snninisitrarse restquardos o protectors dh e lero,

La pr6xima temporada del beisbol
professional en PanamA se iniciarA el
28 de noviembre en el Estadio Olim-
pico "Juan Dem6stenes Arosemena",
en la ciudad de PanamA.
En este campeonato participan los
mejores peloteros panamefios y de la
Zona del Canal, que militant en equi-
pos del beisbol organizado en los
Estados Unidos y en M6xico.
Entre los peloteros de grande
ligas que se encuentran en el Istmo,
estA Ruthford "Chico" Salmon, de
los Indios de Cleveland.
El campeonato se iniciarai, proba-
! blemente, con tres equipos solamen-
te, Marlboro, Cerveza Balboa y Pa-
nalit, esperandose que en el trans-
curso de la pr6xima semana se hagan
los arreglos necesarios para un
cuarto equipo.
Itubo alguna inseguridad sobre la
celebraciOn del pr6ximo torneo, mo-
tivo por el cual algunos peloteros
panainmeios aceptaron contratos en
otras ligas, tales como Osvaldo Cha-
varria y BRamn Webster en la Liga

De acuerdo con los convenios de
las ligas del Caribe y la Asociaci6n
National de Ligas Menores de Beis-
bol de los Estados Unidos, ningun
pelotero native puede jugar fuera de
su pais sin el permiso de su respec-
tiva liga, y el circuit panamefio ha
ordenado a los peloteros que estan
jugando en otras ligas, que regresen
al Istmno para participar en el cam-
peonato local.
Como en ailos anteriores, los par-
tidos se celebrarin en estadios de
Panalma, Col6n, David, Chitr6, Las
Tablas, Aguadulce y probablemente
en Almirante, Bacas del Toro.
No es mUy seguro que los equipos
imported peloteros este aiio, debido
a que el campeonato pasado no tuvo
exito econ6micamente. Sin embargo,
es possible que el Cerveza Balboa
traiga al pelotero panamefio H6ctor
L6pez, de los Yankees de Nueva
