PanCanal Spanish

Instructor Wins

Literary Award

The highest literary award in the
Republic of Panama has been won
by Carlos Garcia de Paredes, senior
Spanish instructor in the Personnel
Bureau's Employee Utilization and
Development Staff.
For his play "Celeste por la Ma-
fiana" (Celeste in the Morning), he
receives a $1,000 cash prize, a gold
medal and a certificate. As an addi-
tional part of the award, the Panama-
nian Government will publish the
play, which won over 14 other
The work was entered October 29,
last day of the literary competition
held each year in the Republic. The
amiable Spanish instructor entered
the play under the pseudonym
"Lazaro" and revealed his identity
only when the distinguished group
of judges announced the winners.
Two other categories this year were
poetry and novel.
A 3-act play, the winning presen-
tation is based on a classic Spanish
short story. Set in modern Panama,
the theme deals with problems of
the poor and underprivileged.

NIGHTS OF DEC. 22, 23, 24

Pageantry To Tell

Story of Christmas

Three nights of Christmas entertainment are planned beginning Decem-
ber 22. Balboa Union Church will stage a special portrayal of the story
of Christmas with choirs, soloists, a narrator and biblical characters. The
outdoor pageant begins at 7 p.m. December 22, at the foot of the
Administration Building steps in Balboa.
Another Christmas show, scheduled to run for three nights, begins imme-

diately after the church presentation
on December 22. The next two
nights it will begin at 7:30 and run
to about 10 o'clock. A nativity scene,
complemented by a choral group, is
the centerpiece. A second highlight
is the organ music of Lucho Azci-
rraga. The third part of the program
is a Christmas music group. For
variety in the Yuletide program the
three units will alternate during
each performance at the Goethals
Monument area.
The church pageant is directed by
Donald Lohse and has the active
participation of the Armed Forces,
civilian community, and residents of
the Republic of Panama. The three
night show, organized by the Pan-
ama Canal Information Office, is
being supported by the Armed
Forces and the civilian community.
The church presentation will offer
the audience an opportunity to join
in the singing of traditional carols as
the story of Christmas unfolds.
In the event of rain, the church
pageant will be presented the follow-
ing evening at 7 o'clock.
The cast of the Church pageant
includes Mrs. William De La Mater,
Mary; John D. Byerley, Joseph;
Capt. Ernest Dean, Gabriel; Sgt.
George R. McClain, Inkeeper;

New Regulation.

Requires Use

Of Seat Belts
A new revision in safety regula-
tions requires that the drivers and
all occupants riding' in other than
the cargo bodies of automotive
vehicles of the Panama Canal orga-
nization wear properly adjusted seat
belts at all times while the vehicles
are in motion. In the past, use of
seat belts was requested, but not
Using agencies have been directed
to arrange for prompt installation of
the seat belts. Upon installation, a
notice or notices are to be posted in
each vehicle affected by the regula-
tion, plainly visible to the driver and
to each occupant, warning that the
wearing of properly adjusted seat
belts is mandatory while the vehicles
are in motion.
Violations could result in dis-
ciplinary action as in the case of
violation of any safety regulation.



The dotted line shows the above-water extent of this slide on the east bank of the Panama Canal about 1% miles
south of the Chagres River in the Gaillard Cut section. The Dredge Paraiso has completed clearing the Canal
prism, which involved removing about 12,000 cubic yards of earth from the channel. An estimated 150,000
cubic yards of earth and rock was in motion. No delays to transits resulted. The abnormally long dry season this
year caused unusually severe shrinkage cracking of soil surfaces at some points, particularly in localities where old
slides had previously created weakened soil masses. With the rapid and intensive onset of the rainy season, these
old slide areas were more than usually vulnerable to deep intrusion of surface water and further failure. There
have been several such slides, none of major continuing concern to Canal officials, with the coming dry season
expected to curb slide action.


December 17, 1965

In a simple ceremony in the Office of the Cristobal Personnel Branch, five
dozen white canes were presented to officers of the Club of the Blind of
Colon. Jos6 A. Colina, Retirement Clerk, made the presentation to George
Mclvy, Samuel Duncan, and Alejandro Perez, president, vice president, and
secretary, respectively, of the club. This project was made possible through
funds provided by the Balboa Women's Welfare Group, and arrangements
by the Cristobal Personnel Branch, co-sponsor of the Club of the Blind of
Colon, which has approximately 60 members ranging in age from 9 to 83
years. From left are: William Zemites, Chief of Employment and Placement
Section, Cristobal, Miss Rosa Campbell, guide, Duncan, McIvy, Perez,

Panama University

Group on Tour;

E&C Playing Host

The Panama Canal Engineering
and Construction Bureau was spon-
sor of a tour today for approximately
30 students of the Architectural
School of Panama University.
The tour began at 8 a.m. with an
orientation in the Architectural Sec-
tion at the Administration Building
given by Edmund R. MacVittie,
Chief of the Architectural Branch,
and Architect Julio Cordovez.
After the orientation, the group
visited Canal Zone College and the
college dormitory to see different
architectural principles and devices
used in those structures. Then they
went to Gorgas Hospital where they
were shown drawings and specifica-
tions of the Gorgas Hospital annex.
Later, the students visited the new
Curundu Junior High School and
the Los Rios slide, where they saw
the damage that had been done and
were told how it was to be repaired.
They also visited the Paraiso gym.
At noon they boarded the launch
Las Cruces at Pedro Miguel for a
round trip through the Cut. Box
lunches and cokes were served aboard
the launch.

They plan to cripple the oil refi-

Red stronghold in the Western
Hemisphere. This book provides a
good exciting story with local color.

Gestionan Pelea Entre Carlos

"Morocho" Hernandez y Laguna

Existe la posibilidad de que se
celebre el sAbado 15 de enero un
encuentro entire el campe6n mundial
de boxeo del peso welter junior,
Carlos "Morocho" HernAndez, y el
ex campe6n ligero del mundo, Ismael
Laguna, en el Estadio Olimpico de
La pelea seria a 10 asaltos dentro
del limited de ]a divist6n ligera, para
que no corra peligro la corona del
venezolano Hernandez, quien no
arriesgarA su titulo de las 140 libras
en este encuentro. El limited del peso
ligero es de 135 libras.
Se ha elevado una consult a la
Asociaci6n Mundial de Boxeo sobre
esta pelea, por intermedio del Dr.
Elias C6rdova, Jr., Presidente de la

Comisi6n de Boxeo Profesional de
PanamA, y Vicepresidente de la
HernAndez siempre ha estado en
pos de una pelea por el titulo mun-
dial del peso ligero, pero como no
ha podido conseguir esa oportuni-
dad, tuvo que escalar la division
superior y arrebat6 la corona al
norteamericano Eddie Perkins.
Laguna estA clasificado por la
AMB como tercer retador del peso
ligero, mientras que la revista The
Ring lo clasifica como el primer con-
tendor de la corona que ahora ostenta
nuevamente el puertorriquefio Carlos
Ortiz, quien venci6 a Laguna el 13
de noviembre iltimo en San Juan,
Puerto Rico.

Tenga Mucho Cuidado al Usar

Como Adorno Semilla Venenosa

Hace poco tiempo una dama llev6
al Centro de Venenos del Hospital
Gorgas unos collares confeccionados
con semillas de un rojo-naranja y de
punta negra, Ilamada semilla Jequi-
rity, y conocida con los nombres de
"pepita del rosario", "pepita del
amor", "mienie-mienie", y conocida
como "ojos de cangrejo", en las
Estas atractivas, duras, brillantes
y decorativas semillitas se usan en
los paises tropicales y subtropicales,
especialmente en las Antillas y en
la India, para hacer joyas de fanta-
sia, rosarios, y otros artefactos de
carActer decorative. Tambien se han
hecho imprescindibles a las florists
y decoradoras que las usan para
hacer arreglos florales.
La brillante semilla contiene una
substancia sumamente venenosa lla-
mada abrin, que al ingerirse o al
ponerse en contact con heridas
abiertas o lesiones superficiales, hasta
en dosis pequefias, result fatal. Una
sola pepita, bien mascada, puede
costar la vida a un ser human; pero
si este se tragase la semilla no se
envenenaria pues su corteza no lo
La semilla en forma de frijol que
lleva el nombre de Jequirity, o Abrus
Precatorius tuvo su origen en la

India, pero forma parte de la flora de
todas las regions tropicales y sub-
tropicales del mundo, incluyendo la
Florida, donde se usa como enreda-
dera protectora y con sus semillas se
hacen artefactos decorativos.
Aunque ni en la Zona del Canal,
ni en sus alrededores, crecen enre-
daderas de esta especie, varias per-
sonas las han introducido en forma
de collares, aretes, pulseras, y otros
artefactos decorativos para el hogar.
La mayoria de las personas no
estAn conscientes de los muchos pe-
ligros que la compra de articulos
ex6ticos traen consigo. Segin articu-
lo en edici6n reciente del "Miami
Herald", la Oficina de Aduana de
los Estados Unidos, estim6 que des-
pu6s que a los viajantes se les infor-
m6 de los peligros de la semilla
Jequirity de 15 a 20 articulos por
semana confeccionados con estas
semillas fueron abandonados por los
pasajeros de lines de aviaci6n y
de 30 a 40 articulos por los pasajeros
de lines navieras.
Como es probable que muchos re-
sidentes de la Zona del Canal hagan
giras por el Area del Caribe y por la
America Central, se les recomienda
que tomen precauciones al comprar
articulos confeccionados con esta
venenosa semilla.



Conozca su Licencia
Su Licencia de Conductor es su autorizaci6n y permiso para conducir
un vehiculo motorizado. Este es un privilegio (no un derecho) que la
autoridad le ha otorgado.
Este privilegio le permit compartir la carretera, miles de kil6metros
de ella, con muchos otros ciudadanos que tambi6n han recibido el privilegio
de permitirseles conducir vehiculos.
Es un privilegio que Ie ha sido ccncedido a usted con el entendimiento
y conformidad de que usted honrarA y respetara los derechos de los demAs
en todo momerito y en cualquier condici6n.
Al firmar su licencia de conductor usted firma una promesa, un pacto
de caballero, para poner en prActica t:da su pericia y cortesia. Recuerdelo
Esta es su licencia para la vida o para la muerte . y usted decidirA
con sus acciones detrAs del volar.te para cuAl de estos fines serA. Su propio
destino estA en sus manos.
Ella es una de las posesiones mAs valiosas que usted pueda llegar a
alcanzar. La licencia para conducir le hace possible a usted y a sus series
queridos disfrutar de muchos aspects adicionales de la vida, tales como
mejorar sus conocimientos por medio de viajes, el poder tener amistades
y visitarlas frecuentemente, el gozar con el dominion de un nuevo arte y,
para muchos, la licencia les hace possible desempefiar un cargo que servirA
de fuente de sustento para ellos y sus families.
6Qu6 podremos decir que es su licencia de conductor? Ella es quizAs
uno de los papeles mas valiosos que usted pueda haber alcanzado en su
vida. H6nrela y conservela evitando infracciones.

El final de la jornada lleg6 finalmente para la Locomotora No. 441 cuando fue sometida al soplete en el Patio
de Chatarra de Balboa. La No. 441 fue comprada por el Canal de PanamA en 1930 y retirada en 1962. Fue uti-
lizada como mAquina en el patio del ferrocarril donde movia otro equipo ferroviario dentro y fuera del Area,
y como mAquina de vapor, proporcionando vapor a barcos en el dique seco para hacer funcionar sus montacargas
y equipo elictrico. Cortando la vieja mAquina con su soplete, al frente, estA Osvald E. Duggon, y ayudandolo
estan Modesto Diaz (al centro) y Louis Babb, todos empleados del Patio de Chatarra y Material Excedente.
La No. 441 fue una de las dos locomotoras de combustion de aceite usadas por la Divisi6n Industrial del Canal
de Panama.
