Although dry season water de-
mands are still high, Pacific side
water reservoirs are now being filled

Decrease in the use of water has
resulted in a corresponding decrease
in electrical energy needed to pump
water to the filtration plant and the
water reservoirs.
Meanwhile heavy Canal ship
traffic plus electrical energy peak
loads as high as 83,000 kilowatts,
which require continued use of the
Gatun Hydroelectric Plant, have
caused a steady drop of approxima-
tely .05 of a foot a day in the level

Site clearing for this project
started January 22 and the first fill

32 fill-hauling days. The maximum
estimated fill placed in one day was
10,000 cubic yards. The daily aver-
age was 6,030 cubic yards.
This earth-moving accomplish-
ment was described as a tribute to
the fine planning, organization, and
supervisory effort on the part of the
contractor and his equipment oper-
ators. Close coordination by mem-
bers of the Construction and Dredg-

also was necessary to install spill-

I feel as though I'm the only one
in the city that isn't armed. Nightly
we hear guns and mortars booming

Da Nang East a few days ago and
they drew sniper fire. I think the
surveymen were less concerned
about the incident than I.

Cooke said he got his pedicab
operator working on a steady basis
with the assistance of sandwiches,
cigarettes, and a bottle of New
Year's liquor. Only when it rains
does he have to pay more than 14
cents a ride.

A 12-year-old shoeshine boy who
came to his office to shine about 20
pairs of shoes a day was not only
more avaricious than the pedicab
driver, he also was less loyal.
Cooke said the boy earned 490
piasters a day with piasters at 118 to
a dollar, while a good carpenter or
electrician earns not more than 20
or 25 piasters a day. Despite his high
earnings and steady job, the shoe-
shine boy was caught by a sentry
one day trying to sneak into a U.S.
enlisted men's billet with a plastic
charge. He was taken into custody
and kept for a few days. That was
the end of his shoeshine activity
around the office.
Cooke left the Isthmus with his
family at the end of 1962 after
7 years as Panama Canal Designing
Engineer. Before coming to the
Zone he had been Chief of the Engi-
neering Division with the Corps of
Engineers in Huntington, W. Va.
District. He is a graduate of West
Virginia University and during
World War II served with the Army
Corps of Engineers. He was separ-
ated from active service in 1946
with the rank of lieutenant colonel.

Physical Fitness Meets

Scheduled for April 1

The 10-, 11-, and 12-year old
pupils who scored highest in the
recent annual physical fitness tests in
the Canal Zone U.S. elementary
schools will be invited to take part
in twin physical fitness meets to be
held Friday, April 1, in Coco Solo
and Balboa stadiums.
About 4,500 pupils completed the
tests. The 7-item American Associa-
tion for Health, Physical Education,
and Recreation test has been given
annually in the U.S. Schools since
Each year on the average, the
Canal Zone students scored higher
and higher until the Canal Zone
average was at the 70th percentile
for the test norms. Last year, how-
ever, sample testing was carried out
in the United States and new norms
were published recently which are
much higher.
At a recent press conference at
National Education Association head-
quarters in Washington, D.C.,
AAHPER officials reported that
youngsters in the sample survey last
year performed better on every test
item than their older brothers and
sisters had in a similar survey during
the 1957-58 school year. They also
showed significant improvement in
comparison with British youngsters
tested in 1960.
Under the new norms, the average
12-year-old boy is expected to do
3 pull-ups instead of 2; 50 sit-ups

Musical Comedy

On CZC Stage

March 30-April 2

"Bells Are Ringing," the sunnily
optimistic musical comedy in which
Judy Holliday starred for 27 months
in New York, is to be presented at
the Canal Zone College Auditorium
from March 30 to April 2. Vicki
Lawrence will be featured in the
role that Miss Holliday created, that
of a telephone-answering service
operator who can't stop spreading
kindness everywhere.
This heroine is no mere Polly-
anna-ish "Glad-Girl." In fact, she
has plenty of troubles in the plot
that was put together, along with
the show's lyrics, by Betty Comden
and Adolph Green.
However, her irresistible impulses
to do favors for her answering-serv-
ice customers soon brings her to the
rescue of her Plaza-O client when
he gets into a jam, so that she does
see him-without revealing that she
is the "mom" on whom he has come
to depend via the telephone, so that
he doesn't see her as she really is,
but only under an alias.
The show's songs, juke-box favor-
ites ever since "Bells Are Ringing"
first began its 27-mohth run on
Broadway in 1956, have effervescent

Green and melodies by Jule Styne,
Composer of scores for such other
stage hits as "High Button Shoes,"
"Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," and

the owner of the answering-service,
and Morris Maduro as a betting
The songs are under the musical
direction of Dr. Robert Kennedy,

Knowing Harmful and Poisonous

Tropical Plants Can Save Grief

With dry season on the Isthmus,
many Canal Zone and Panama res-
idents have gotten the back-to-nature
feeling of enjoyment through nature
and taken to the roads leading to the
beaches and interior of Panama.
During this time of picnics, trips,
and just plain exploring the country-
side, it is extremely important that
one be able to identify poisonous
plants. Although not abundant
throughout the area, there are several
plants one should at least recognize
as harmful or poisonous.
The best advice is not to touch
plants one does not recognize as
being safe. Always avoid plants that
have milky juice or sap. Never-but
never-eat any raw fruit found on
the ground, as it may carry a disease
or be poisonous.
Dumb Cane Common
Common in the Isthmian lowlands
and wet ground is dumb cane, known
in Panama as oto de lagarto. The
plant is about 3 feet high, has dark
green leaves, grows erect with stems
that may be as thick as a man's arm.
Portions of the root may grow on a
level with the ground. When its
stems or leaves are broken, the milky
sap that pours out causes severe
blistering and inflammation of the
skin. When cut, the plant gives off
an offensive skunk-like odor.
Found along the ocean beaches,
where it often forms dense thickets,
is the manchineel, better known as
the manzanillo tree, a small tree with
pale brown smooth bark and very
small green flowers and shiny green
leaves. This inviting shade tree, on
the beach, is a spreading, open-
branched tree that bears a fruit
resembling a small green apple. But
don't sit under this "apple tree" and
don't roast marshmallows or hot dogs
over a manzanillo wood fire! The

New Lifesaving

Classes Offered
New lifesaving classes will be
offered at the Balboa Pool starting
Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Classes will
last 1% hours. To qualify for either
the senior or junior course, appli-
cants must pass a preliminary swim-
ming test.
Age requirement for senior life-
saving is at least 16 years old or a
junior in high school; for junior,
12 years old or in the 7th grade.
There will be approximately 17
hours of instruction with a final
written examination for the senior
Competitive workouts have been
resumed at the pool and are being
held Mondays, Wednesday, and
Friday from 4 to 5 p.m. There will
be a swim meet at Coco Solo Pool

milky sap from this tree causes
blistering and severe inflammation
of the skin and smoke from the
burning wood may injure the eyes.
The cashew tree, or marafi6n,
found throughout Panama, is a rather
small tree with stiff, yellow-green
leaves and loose clusters of pink
flowers. Though the fruit, which is
a beautiful red or yellow, is sweet
and juicy when ripe, the kidney-
shaped nut, grey-green in color, is
poisonous until all the caustic oil is
expelled by roasting. The roasting
must be done outside-never in an
Common in the low and middle
altitudes of Panama is the stinging
spurge, a plant 3 to 5 feet high,
called nettles, or ortiga, in Panama.
It is found on the Pacific slope of the
Continental Divide, particularly in
dry regions along the beaches. The
plant is thickly covered with stiff
hairs which sting severely and cause
pain and inflammation, and may
even cause a high fever if contact
is severe. It has white flowers and
a milky sap.

If you have reason to believe a
skin rash or internal disorder is the
result of contact with, or ingestion
of, substance from a harmful or
poisonous plant or tree, telephone
2-2600, the Poison Center, located
at Gorgas Hospital. There you'll
be able to get expert advice by
telephone on emergency measures
to be taken until you can see a

Cow-itch, or pica-pica, as it is
called in Panama, is the most com-
mon plant in this area. It is a low,
woody vine or a bush, especially
plentiful during dry season in the
lowlands. Hard pods on this bush
are covered with stiff hairs or bristles
that separate easily and are often
carried with the wind. They pene-
trate the skin and cause intense
Hedge Tree Hazard
A tree commonly found in low-
lands of the entire Caribbean region,
where it is often planted for hedges
or fence posts, bears "nuts" that are
poisonous. The physic nut, contain-
ing 2 or 3 large oily seeds, known
as pifi6n or coquillo, is violently pur-
gative. The bush or small tree has
small greenish-yellow flowers.
The olivo tree's sap is considered
very poisonous in Mexico and El
Salvador, but not so in Panama. The
tree may be large or small and may
be recognized by two small projec-
tions at the base of the leaf, and a
capsule-like fruit that it bears. It is
called fiipe in Panama.
Beware of a medium-sized tree

April 7 open to all students of Canal that grows abundantly in the low-

Zone U.S. elementary schools.

lands of tropical America, the

trumpet tree. It has a smooth trunk,
nearly white in color, and a few
branches near the top with stiff
leaves that are green on top and
white on the underside. The branches
are hollow and inhabited by swarms
of small ants that bite painfully when
the leaf or branch is touched.
Sap Irritant
A beautiful shade tree found grow-
ing at low altitudes is the sandbox
tree. The milky sap of this tree causes
severe irritation to the skin and the
woody fruits are dangerous to handle
because, when dry, they explode
scattering seeds violently in many
directions. These seeds are poison-
ous. The fruit is about the size of
a small muskmelon or pumpkin. The
trunk of the sandbox tree is covered
with short, sharp spines. The tree is
known as jabillo or javillo.
Whenever possible, wild plants
should be checked with the natives.
They usually know which plants are
safe and which are poisonous. Make
your outing a happy one. Don't touch
plants you do not recognize as safe.

Arsenic and Old Lace, a 3 act
murder mystery comedy which had
been previously scheduled earlier in
March, will be presented March 26

The nursing profession has come a long way since
Dorothea Dix-who was training nurses for the War
Department during the first months of the Civil War-
listed these requirements:
"No woman under 30 years need apply to serve in
the Government hospitals. All nurses are required to be
very plain-looking women. Their dresses must be
brown or black, with no bows, no curls, no jewelry, and
no hoop skirts."
A typical answer was:
"I am in possession of one of your circulars, and will
comply with all your requirements. I am plain-looking
enough to suit you and old enough. I have no near
relatives in the war, no lover there. I have never had
a husband and I am not looking for one. Will you
take me?"
Today, this profession boasts women (and men)
highly skilled, well educated, who are continuously
playing greater roles in the field of medicine. As scien-
tists uncover more secrets of nature and devise better
techniques, nurses similarly are expected to enlarge
on their knowledge.
The field of education has contributed heavily to
medicine by establishing outstanding schools of nursing
which at present number more than 1,100 in the United
States. They offer programs accredited by the National
League for Nursing and provide nursing educations in
2, 3, 4, and sometimes 5 years.
Completion of the 4 and 5 year programs provide for
bachelor degrees and RN's (registered nurses). Those
who successfully complete the 2 and 3 year programs
receive diplomas and associate degrees, respectively,
plus RN's.
The two oldest U.S. schools of nursing are those at
the Bellevue Hospital in New York City and the Mas-

sachusetts General Hospital, both of which were estab-
lished in 1873. The next to be set up in 1884 at the
Philadelphia General Hospital.
The caps of more than 100 registered nurses at
Gorgas Hospital reflect the cross section of nursing
schools from which they have been graduated. Miss
E. Madeleine Shaw, Director of the Nursing Services,
received her training at Massachusetts General Hospital,
affiliated with Harvard University.
No two schools of nursing have the same type caps,
although they can be similar. The supervisor of a newly-
established school of nursing may, for example, design
a cap similar to that which she received from her alma
mater, with minor modifications.
Of special importance to the crew members and
passengers of ships from many nations that pass through
the Canal is the fact that at least 10 different languages
are spoken by different members of the nursing staff
at Gorgas Hospital. These include English, Spanish,
French, Polish, Lithuanian, Italian, German, Serbian,
Hungarian, and Persian.
Any registered nurses interested in working full time
on a rotating shift basis at Gorgas Hospital should
contact the Personnel Bureau at Ancon. Also, any young
people contemplating studying nursing for careers and
who would like assistance in deciding which schools
to apply to or other information may call Miss Shaw.
And for those interested in nursing as a military
career, the Walter Reed Army Institute of Nursing has
a program under which students attend a college or
university of their choice for 2 years and take the
2-year balance of their training at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center. At graduation they receive a 2d lieu-
tenant's commission in the Army. Graduates are
obligated to spend 3 years in the Army.

Captain in Cristobal in the presence of Mrs. Carlisle. A native of Texas, Captain Carlisle has 20 years of experience
at sea. He had been on Lykes Brothers Steamship Co. vessels since 1950. He was chief mate for a number of
years before being employed by the Panama Canal in 1964 as a pilot trainee. He is assigned to Cristobal.

Administrative Services Units

Relocated for Better Access

It was moving day Monday in the
Administrative Services Division offi-
ces on the second floor of the Admin-
istration Building, Balboa Heights.
Some moved but a few feet. Others
went up the hall and across the
corridor. The purpose? To place all
public services in one area in line
with President Johnson's directive on
making public services more accessi-
ble to the public.
The move, or moves, has the effect
of localizing three major public-
contact functions of the Administra-
tive Services Division in one general
area. These are the Selective Service
Office, Visa Office, and Immigration
and Purchase Authority Unit, now
located in an area more accessible
and more suitable to meet the needs
of the public.
Mrs. Mildred Cook, the Panama
Canal's new selective service clerk,
is now approximately where Mrs.
Fannie Sosa's desk was formerly
Mrs. Sosa of the Immigration and

Purchase Authority Unit has moved
to the former location of the Panama
Canal's visa office. Mrs. Sosa is a
notary public and handles police
clearances. As an additional service,
Mrs. Sosa will issue departure cards
as well as "Advance Authorization to
Enter the Canal Zone," thus central-
izing in one location the issuance of
entry and departure cards.
Louis Poletti, visa officer, has
moved to what formerly was the
Panama Canal translators' office.
The translators, William O'Sulli-
van, Marcia Ortega, and Aramis
Defort, have moved up the hall and
across the corridor next to the office
of the Chief, Administrative Services
Gerard K. Schear, budget and per-
sonnel officer of the Administrative
Services Division has moved across
the corridor.
Jim Howell, property clerk who
acts as cashier for the Division,
moved to the second floor from the
Administration Building basement
to a more accessible and convenient
location and to coordinate his office
with that of the budget and personnel
A small waiting room now is
located between the budget officer's
office and that of the selective service

studied at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn,
In 1930 he became a student
recorder and a short time later was
a junior meteorological observer. He
is one of the original "ridge run-
ners" who covered 1,300 square
miles of jungle on foot, from station
to station, collecting hydrological
data. A promotion to junior engineer
was followed by the position of
assistant chief hydrographer for
some 12 years.
His latest hobby is surfing, but he
has never given up his first love of
exploring old Spanish cobblestone
trails on the Isthmus, which runs a
close second to hunting. He has
made several preliminary trips to the
Darien and Colombia in connection
with Canal studies.
Jim Million, the new chief hydro-
grapher, was born in Gatun, son of
George Million who was construc-
tion foreman on the Gatun Locks
construction project. Jim attended
Balboa and Ancon schools to the
6th grade and then went to school
in Cincinnati through the 8th grade.

He attended Benson Polytechnic in
Portland, Oreg., and then Oregon
State College.
In 1941 he returned to the Isth-
mus. He worked at Madden Dam
as an engineering aid, was promoted
to engineer, and then was named
assistant chief hydrographer in
August 1964.
His hobby is boating, but rival
hobbies are Boy Scouting, fishing,
and baseball.
He has two grown children, but
a younger son of 13 has kept his
interest channeled in the Little
League and then the Teenage
League. He worked 10 years with
the Little League, and has been a
worker and supporter of the Teen-
age League 6 years. His jobs have
ranged through those of manager,
assistant manager, and coach.

Ancient Tradition

To Be Introduced

At St. Luke's
Sunday, March 20, -the Episcopal
Churchwomen of Saint Luke's Cathe-
dral will introduce an ancient tradi-
tion into the present day practices
of the church.
The Fourth Sunday in Lent, Mid-
Lent Sunday, is often termed
"Mothering Sunday" (from the
Epistle to be read, Galatians 4:21-31)
and "Refreshment Sunday" (from the
Gospel for the day, St. John 6:1-14).
Recognition of these terms has a two-
fold purpose-to honor the family
and to refresh for the last 20 days of
Lent-and has from ancient times
lightened, for a day, the rigors of the
40 days of fasting and prayer that
comprise Lent.
Following the 9:15 a.m. Family
Service, the traditional "Simnel
Cake" will be served in the Cathedral
Center. Following the 11 a.m. serv-
ice, it will be served in Bishop Morris
Hall. "Simnel" is a corruption of the
Latin word "simial," the finest wheat
flour. The cake is rich with butter,
flour, sugar, candied orange peel,
currants, and eggs. In medieval
times, this cake was featured on the
menu on Mid-Lent Sunday. Mrs.
F. R. Rozzelle, parish hostess, and
her committee will prepare the cakes
from an authentic recipe. Each lady
attending will receive a copy of the

Water Use Cut

Draft limitations for ships arriving
for transit have been reduced four
times since February 25 when they
were lowered from 38 feet 6 inches
to 38 feet, tropical fresh water. The
most recent limitation, to become
effective March 22, sets the maxi-
mum draft at 36 feet 6 inches.

Air Conditioner

Tablet Treatment

Can Void Warranty
Panama Canal Supply Division
personnel have been informed by a
local air conditioner representative
that it has come to his attention that
some owners of air conditioners are
placing HTH tablets in their air con-
ditioners to prevent formation of
algae in the base pan.
These tablets contain 70 percent
active ingredient calcium hypo-
chlorite, a strong oxidizing agent,
which will gradually deteriorate all
parts that it comes in contact with,
except glass, enamel, plastic, china,
and porcelain.
The representative advised, in
view of this, that all parts found
damaged by the oxidizing agent will
not be replaced free of charge,
under factory warranty. The full
value of the part or parts replaced,
plus labor charge, will be payable
by the owner of the unit repaired.
The practice of using these tablets
in any air conditioner is contrary to
the requirement that adequate care
be taken of the air conditioner in
order for the warranty to be honored.
Use of these tablets could lead to
the refusal by any manufacturer to
replace parts so damaged.
The tablets apparently are being
used in lieu of proper cleaning
of the air conditioners, which is

and Mrs. M. B. Huff, and Miss
R. Yvonne Crane, daughter of Mr.

tion is to travel to those parts of
the world he has not yet visited and
to revisit favorite areas in Europe
and the Orient.

Se ha Ahorrado Bastante Agua

Mas se Debe Seguir Ahorrando

La cooperaci6n de los empleados
del Canal de PanamA y del personal
military ha dado por resultado un
ahcrro en el gasto de agua.
En febrero, la Divisi6n de Mante-
nimiento del Canal de PanamA hizo
un pedido para que no se regara con
mangueras los prados de las Areas
residenciales del sector Pacifico.
A pesar de que las demands de
la estaci6n seca todavia son altas, los
tanques del sector Pacifico se llenan
hasta el mAximo durante la noche,
para hacer frente a las demands del
dia, cuando son altaas.
La disminuci6n en el consumo de
agua ha resultado en una disminuci6n
correspondiente en el uso de la ener-
gia electrica que se necesita para
bombear el agua hacia la plant de
filtraci6n y hacia los tanques de dis-
Mientras tanto, el fuerte trAnsito
de naves por el Canal y las grandes
cargas de electricidad que han Ilega-
do a 83.000 kilovatios, lo cual re-
quiere el uso de la Hidroel6ctrica de
Gat6n, han causado una caida con-
tinuada de .05 de pie al dia en el
nivel del Lago Gatuin.
Desde el 25 de febrero, el calado
de los barcos que transitan el Canal
ha sido reducido cuatro veces, de
38 pies 6 pulgadas, a 38 pies, en agua
dulce tropical. La iltima limitaci6n,

que serA efectiva el 22 de marzo,
implanta un calado mAximo de
36 pies 6 pulgadas.

cripciones para este simpitico con-
curso, el 89 Espectaculo Anual de

abril a las 4 p.m. en el Estadio de
Balboa, ain estAn abiertas. Hasta
el moment se ha inscrito una gran
cantidad de animals tanto de la
Republica de PanamA como de la
Zona del Canal. Todos los formula-
rios de inscripci6n deben estar en
manos del tesorero de la Sociedad
Protectora de Animales para el dia

Las Herramientas Golpean Fuerte
La ley fisica relacionada con el efecto de la fuerza de gravedad
sobre los cuerpos en la caida libre, fue descubierta y estudiada por
el cdlebre cientifico Newton, cuando en uno de sus ratos de descanso
bajo un manzano observ6 la caida de una manzana. En este caso
la caida de la fruta no caus6 ning6n dafio sino, por el contrario,
sirvi6 para atraer la curiosidad de una persona que estaba interesada
en saber algo mas acerca de los misterios de la naturaleza. El des-
cubrimiento de tal fen6meno fisico llev6 al conocimiento de los
factors que regulan la velocidad y la fuerza con que los cuerpos
caen en el espacio. La velocidad del cuerpo que cae va aumentando
cada vez mAs a media que cae, o sea que podemos decir que a
mayor tiempo de caida mayor es la velocidad. La fuerza con que el
objeto que cae se estrella contra la superficie que este debajo, varia
proporcionalmente de acuerdo con el peso del objeto y con la
vlocidad con que este golpee la superficie.
Cualquier persona que haya tenido la oportunidad de recibir sobre
su cabeza la caida de una piedra o herramienta, sabe que tratAndose
de un accident no se demora uno a pensar en las leyes fisicas ni
a calcular la velocidad y la fuerza del golpe antes de dar un gran
grito de dolor.
Los golpes en la cabeza son bastante dolorosos y por lo general
traen series consecuencias cuando alcanzan a producer la conmoci6n
del cerebro.
En la industrial, una de las causes mis comunes de golpes en la
cabeza son las herramientas que se dejan abandonadas en sitios
donde pueden caerse, despu6s de haber terminado un trabajo de
reparaci6n o de ajuste. La caida de las herramientas no solamente
pone en peligro la integridad de los compaiieros de trabajo, sino los
equipos que se encuentren debajo. Ademis, las herramientas se dete-
rioran con los golpes. Para evitar estos accidents es necesario cuidar
de colocar las herramientas en sitios de donde no puedan caerse.
