It's Rating Month


This is "rating month" for all em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organ-
ization. Purpose of the Annual Per-
formance Rating Plan is to provide
a method to evaluate the work per-
formance of employees in order to
recognize their merits and contribu-
tion to efficiency and economy.
It also is felt that it helps improve
employee performance by: Strength-
ening supervisor-employee relation-
ships; identifying work standards and
requirements; informing employees
of these standards and requirements;
recognizing commendatory and out-
standing performance; recognizing
and correcting work deficiencies; pro-
viding a guide to personnel actions.
Supervisors are required to discuss
with and notify employees of their
ratings. There are 3 ratings: "Out-
standing," "Satisfactory," and "Un-
satisfactory." If you are rated "Satis-
factory," your supervisor must notify
you orally or in writing. Written
justification is required for "Out-
standing" and "Unsatisfactory."
Criteria are:
A. Quality of Performance
(1) Thoroughness; acceptability
and adequacy of results.
(2) Dependability; accuracy of

The boss carved a batea for her, and the Governor presented a Superior
Service award to Miss Annie F. McDade, who is retiring from Panama Canal
service. The batea, proudly exhibited by Miss McDade, was hand-carved
by John D. Hollen, Chief, Executive Planning Staff, and bears the seal
of the Canal Zone, Isthmus of Panama.

Executive Planning Chief's

Girl Friday Leaving Sunday

Miss Annie F. McDade, Girl Friday
to the Panama Canal's Chief of the
Executive Planning Staff, has retired
after over 27 years' service with the
Canal organization and will sail
Sunday, March 13, on the SS Cris-
tobal to make her home in the United
Miss McDade, who was honored at
a number of gatherings prior to her
departure from the Canal Zone, was
presented a beautiful batea carved by
her boss, John D. Hollen, Chief,
Executive Planning Staff, and re-
ceived a Superior Service Award
from Canal Zone Gov. Robert J.
Fleming, Jr.
The citation of the award, which
was accompanied by a check for
$150, read: "Official recognition and
commendation is tendered to Annie
F. McDade for devoted service as
secretary to the Chief, Executive
Planning Staff. Her absolute depend-
ability, her perfection in secretarial
accomplishments and her capability
in coordinating work with others
have enhanced the effectiveness of
the Executive Planning Staff and the
Office of the Governor."
Miss McDade was born in Cam-
den, N.J., and came to the Isthmus
as a child. Her father, G. F. McDade,
was shipwright leadingman in the
Mechanical Division.
She was graduated from Balboa
High School, and from 1926 to 1928

was employed in the Chemical War-
fare Service Office, Quarry Heights.
On January 29, 1929, she came to
work in the Panama Canal's Corres-
pondence Bureau, then headed by
Eugene Lombard.
Miss McDade resigned in 1939
and went to Europe, where she spent
4 months. On her return to the
United States, she accepted a posi-
tion as clerk-stenographer in the
Department of Labor, Washington,
D.C. From there she went to work in
a secretarial position for private
She was reemployed by the Pan-
ama Canal organization in October
1948 in the Plans Section, the pre-
decessor of the Executive Planning
Staff which came into being in 1953.
In 1955 she received a promotion to
secretary (stenography) and she re-
ceived a Superior Service Award
April 10, 1964.
Miss McDade plans to make her
home in Ardmore, Pa., with her
younger sister, Mrs. Mary Hughes.
While on the Isthmus she enjoyed
traveling throughout the Republic of
Panama and holidays, weekends and
vacations usually found her, map in
hand, ready to take off for some
interesting corner of the Republic.
How about going from the heat of
Panama to the more than slightly
cooler clime of Pennsylvania? "I like
cold weather," Miss McDade asserts.

This is a view of the stern of the Panamanian flag tanker SS Texaco Ohio,
docked at the Mount Hope shipyard. While the ship was en route to the
Canal Zone, the propeller nut dropped off. When the vessel was backed
down for anchoring at Cristobal, the 53,400-pound, 21-foot diameter
propeller fell back against the rudder. The Mount Hope shipyard has
become known virtually all over the world for this type of repair, since
drydocking of the vessel is unnecessary. Repairs are made possible without
drydocking by ballasting the vessel down by the bow, this action elevating
the stern to a height that prevents water from entering the stern tube.

What's Right with our Young
People is the result of research
among 400 teenagers and young
adults by Grace Nier Fletcher who
believes that only too rarely does the
"right" side of youth get a chance
to speak. Some of the carefully
evolved questions which she asked of
a group of young people were: "Each
generation has to find itself. Why is
this generation doing it with vio-
lence?" "What does it mean to be an
American?" and "If you were a
parent today how would you treat
your child?" Mrs. Fletcher believes
that the answers which she received
can make an important contribution
to our knowledge and understanding
of the young.

One of the sleek racing yachts passing through the Canal recently was the
73-foot sloop rigged Kialoa II, an aluminum hulled racing yacht from
California on its way to the Atlantic yacht races. The Kialoa, owned by
John B. Kilroy of California, was built in 1964. It is completely air con-
ditioned, has accommodations below for 11 passengers, and is powered by
an auxiliary diesel engine. The yacht had the owner's son and a crew of
seven aboard.

A Leadership Workshop for Vol-
unteers was organized recently by
the Social Service Staff, Personnel
Bureau, at Santa Cru2. Training of
volunteers is part of the Community
Organization program in the Latin
American Communities.
The workshop for volunteers was
sponsored by the Santa Cruz Social
Welfare Council. This civic organiza-
tion is interested in cooperating in
the solving of community problems.
The main objective of this course for
volunteers is to train people who are
interested in participating in social
welfare services in the communities
such as: summer recreation programs,
child nurseries, libraries, health cen-
ters, etc.
The leadership workshop for vol-
unteers was characterized by the
method used, which was that of
stimulating the volunteers to take an
active part in the development of
their activities.
Mrs. Georgina C. de Young,
Edward F. Leyba, and Miss Clara 0.
Wattley from the Social Service Staff,
lectured on topics such as the re-
sponsibilities of the volunteer, leader-
ship, and personality development.
The group also was interested in the
arts and crafts projects that were
demonstrated by Mrs. Jean Karch, of
the Schools Division, and Mrs. Odilia
de Martiz, of Rufo Garay High
School in Colon.
During the last session the partici-
pants were divided into small groups
in which an evaluation of the work-
shop was made. The participants
reached the conclusions that ade-
quate planning contributes to the
success of a community project;
training is very important for the
volunteer not only because he needs
special skills, but because he must
have an understanding of people
with whom he is going to work, and
he should accept supervision from
the persons in charge of the program
in which he is working as a volunteer.

Weight Training

Article by BHS

Coach Published
An article by Balboa High School
Coach Stewart J. Brown, describing
the Balboa High School Weight
Training Program appears in the
March issue of Scholastic Coach, a
periodical of national scope on the
coaching profession.
In his 2-page article, accompanied
by several pictures demonstrating
weight training, Coach Brown dispels
some of the beliefs held by anti-
weight training persons. He asserts
that weight training should no longer
be considered dangerous, because of
improved equipment, better coach-
ing, new techniques, and more ade-
quate diet of the participants in the
sport. He cites safety as the vital
factor in the controlled weight train-
ing program at Balboa High School.
At the end of the article, Coach
Brown includes a complete workout
schedule of the Balboa High School
Weight Training Program.

Lost City Found?

New Explorations

Yield Evidence
Having already swum the Panama
Canal (in 1962) and trekked through
250 miles of Darien jungle later,
Albert H. Oshiver, a Government
oceanographer, went dashing out to
prove that a city lost more than 400
years ago had been rediscovered.
The city was believed to be near
the western mouth of the Atrato
River, what is now northern Colom-
bia, near the Panama border.
The city in question is Santa Maria
La Antigua, the first "capital" estab-
lished by the Spanish conquistadores
about 1510, then abandoned, and
consequently lost to the jungle, when
Pedrarias, a new Spanish governor,
moved the colony and established
Old Panama in 1519.
Oshiver claims that the site dis-
covered 12 years ago by King
Leopold III of Belgium was that lost
city of Santa Maria La Antigua.
Exploring the area where King
Leopold had excavated, Oshiver
found several pieces of pottery and
some intact building brick. "Some
were glazed," he said; "They had to
be Spanish. The Indians didn't have
such things."
Oshiver also found signs of a river
bed near the site, but they were too
difficult to trace through the jungle.
So he went by a roundabout route
and found what he was looking for-
signs of the river mouth, which
confirmed the evidence.
Oshiver plans to send a report of
his discovery to King Leopold. The
pieces of pottery and brick will go
to the University Museum in
Philadelphia, where he lives.

Botes de Remos de Fibra de

Vidrio Tienen los Pasacables

Ocho de las tripulaciones de los
botes de pasacables de la Divisi6n de
Esclusas, estan llevando a cabo sus
labores en estos dias en nuevos y
veloces botes de remo de fibra de
vidrio construidos por la Divisi6n
Industrial del Canal de Panaman en
Gamboa, como reemplazos de los
viejos botes de madera.
Seis de los nuevos botes de remos
estin ahora en servicio en las Esclu-
sas del Pacifico y dos estAn trabajando
en las Esclusas de Gatin.
Todos fueron construidos, con al-
gunas modificaciones, de acuerdo con
el disefio del XRBF-1, el bote de
remos original de fibra de vidrio ter-
minado en la Divisi6n Industrial en

La decision de construir botes de
remos de fibra de vidri'o para reem-
plazar a los botes de madera usados
por los pasacables en las esclusas,
fue tomada a principios de 1965 por
el Director de Marina. Se estim6 que

Un Empleado del Canal de Panama

Obtuvo su Diploma de Periodista

La noche del viernes 18 de febrero
de 1966, en el Campus de la Univer-
sidad Nacional de PanamA, Erasmo
G6mez, marinero de la Oficina del
Maestre de Rada del Puerto de
Balboa, veia realizarse uno de los
mis caros anhelos de su vida, al reci-
bir su titulo de Licenciado en Filo-
sofia y Letras, con especializaci6n en
Erasmo G6mez es el empleado ti-
pico del Canal de PanamA con ansias
de superaci6n. Naci6 en el popular
barrio de El Chorrillo, en la ciudad
de PanamA, el 25 de noviembre de
1923. En ese barrio se cri6, hizo sus
studios primaries en la vieja Escuela
Repuiblica de El Salvador y la secun-
daria en la Escuela de Artes y Oficios
Melchor Lasso de la Vega.
Luego empez6 la dura lucha por
la vida y prest6 servicios en la Mari-
na Mercante de los Estados Unidos
durante 10 afios. En esos afios tuvo
la oportunidad de visitar casi todos
los continents y de cruzar varias
veces el Canal de Suez. Resume su
impresi6n sobre ese canal diciendo:

"Cuando se entra al Canal de Suez,
desde el Mar Rojo y nada mis que
se ven costas rocosas y cuando se
entra al canal y no se ve mis que
arena, a lo largo del recorrido, se
siente uno como deprimido, ante el
cuadro de naturaleza muerta que se
tiene ante la vista. Por el contrario,
el verdor de la tierra panamefia re-
fresca el espiritu de los viajeros que
cruzan el Canal de PanamA".
Erasmo G6mez es casado con la
Sra. Mercedes Vehisquez de G6mez
y tienen site hijos. La mayor, Fanny,
de 21 afios, estudia para maestra en
Los Angeles, California, done se
graduarA este afio. La menor es Mari-
na Alba, de 8 afios, y estA actualmen-
te en tercer grado de la escuela
El Sr. G6mez, desde que alcanz6
su mayoria de edad se active sienm-
pre en beneficio de la comunidad
donde vivia. Nos cuenta que en 1956
fue uno de los organizadores del Co-
mite Permanente Pro Mejoras del
Barrio del Chorrillo. Este fue un
grupo de 40 hombres del barrio que
se preocuparon por conseguir antes
que todo, una modern escuela de
$300.000 para ese barrio; la cons-
trucci6n de calls de concrete, y ser-
vicio de 24 horas en el dispensario
de El Chorrillo. Llegaron hasta a
publicar un peri6dico mensual con
noticias de ese sector en cuya redac-
ci6n el Sr. G6mez particip6 activa-
Aficionado a todos los deportes,
fue Secretario-Tesorero de la Comi-
si6n de Boxeo Aficionado de PanamA,
en 1959.
Su mayor afici6n es escribir para
la prensa local y su mayor deseo es
tener a su cargo una column diaria
en la cual hacer un periodismo posi-
tivo de altura, para orientar la opi-
ni6n ptiblica en beneficio del pais.

Annie F. McDade, de Planificacion

Concluye su Servicio con el Canal

La Srta. Annie F. McDade, eficien-
tisima secretaria del Jefe de la Ofi-
cina de Planificaci6n del Canal de
PanamA, se jubil6 despues de mis de
27 afios de servicio y partira el do-
mingo 13 de marzo a bordo del
Cristdbal, para fijar su residencia en
los Estados Unidos. (Foto en la
secci6n inglesa.)
La Srta. McDade, que ha sido
objeto de numerosos agasajos con
motivo de su partida de la Zona del
Canal, recibi6 una bellisima batea,
hecha a mano por su jefe, John D.
Hollen, Jefe de la Oficina de Plani-
ficaci6n, y recibi6 un Premio por Ser-
vicios Sobresalientes, de parte del
Gobernador de la Zona del Canal
Robert J. Fleming, Jr.
La citaci6n del premio, que le fue
entregada junto con un cheque de
$150, dice: "Se le extiende reconoci-
miento y encomio official a Annie F.
McDade por su leal servicio como
secretaria del Jefe de la Oficina de
Planificaci6n. Su absolute confiabili-
dad, su perfecci6n en el desarrollo de
las labores secretariales y su capaci-
dad en coordinar el trabajo con
otros, han realzado la efectividad de
la Oficina de Planificaci6n y la Ofi-
cina del Gobernador".
La Srta. McDade naci6 en Cam-
den, Nueva Jersey, y lleg6 al Istmo
todavia nifia. Su padre, G. F.
McDade, era primer constructor de
barcos en la antigua Divisi6n de

"Pap6 perdi6 el paraguas otra vez".

Se gradu6 en la Escuela Secunda-
ria de Balboa, y de 1926 a 1928 tra-
baj6 en la Oficina de la Guerra Qui-
mica, en Quarry Heights. El 29 de
enero de 1929 empez6 a trabajar con
la Direcci6n de Correspondencia del
Canal de PanamA, dirigida en aquel
entonces por Eugene Lombard.
La Srta. McDade renunci6 en 1939
y viaj6 a Europa, donde permaneci6
4 meses. A su regreso a Estados Uni-
dos, acept6 una posici6n como ofici-
nista esten6grafa en el Departamento
de Trabajo, en Washington, D.C. De
alli fue a trabajar como secretaria en
la industrial privada.
Fue reempleada por el Canal de
Panama en octubre de 1948 en la
Secci6n de Planos, predecesora de
la Oficina de Planificaci6n, que em-
pez6 a existir en 1953. En 1955 fue
ascendida a secretaria esten6grafa y,
el 10 de abril de 1964, recibi6 un
premio por Servicios Sobresalientes.
La Srta. McDade plane residir
en Ardmore, Pensilvania, con su her-
mana menor, Sra. Mary Hughes.
Mientras vivi6 en el Istmo, su
mayor satisfacci6n fue viajar por todo
el pais y, para los dias do fiesta y fines
de semana, por lo general, se la veia,
mapa en mano, lista para salir hacia
algifn rinc6n interesante de PanamA.
A ella no le importa cambiar el
calor de Panami por el clima "bas-
tante mAs fresco" de Pensilvania.
"A mi me gusta el frio", es la expli-
caci6n que da la Srta. McDade.

Accidentes Entre los
Trabajadores Menores
El Departamento de Trabajo del
Estado de Nueva York, complete un
studio de los accidents sufridos por
los trabajadores menores de 18 afios
en los Estados Unidos. El anAlisis de
12.188 accidents en 27 Estados de-
mostr6 que el manejo manual de
materials y equipos, fue el que
caus6 cl mayor nuimero de acci-
dentes. Siguieron las caidas como
la causa segunda. Los sobresfuerzos
fueron tambidn la causa de uii gran
n6mero de accidents.

El Profesor Ruben Dario Carles, distinguido escritor panamefio, historiador y ex Ministro de Educaci6n de Pana-
mA, anuncia la fecha y detalles pertinentes de una excursion que harin a PanamI la Vieja los miembros de la
Sociedad Hist6rica del Istmo, en una reunion que tuvo lugar, recientemente, en el Sal6n Roosevelt de la Casa
de Huespedes Tivoli.
