To Open at

Fort Gulick
Expected to be completed for the
fall school term opening is a
new elementary school now under
construction at Fort Gulick.
The H-shaped, 1 .story masonry
structure with metal deck, rigid in-
sulation and built-up roof, will have
19 regular classrooms and 2 kinder-
garten rooms. The school, to have a
capacity for approximately 630
pupils, will be completely air-condi-
tioned by means of a chilled water
The chillers, condensers, pumps,
and vibration insolators required to
cool the water are housed in a
separate building from the main
structure while the three air handling
units are located in three isolated
rooms within the main building.
Adjacent to the main building and
connected by a covered passage is an
85 by 51 foot playshelter. The front
of the building has a covered area for
bus loading and discharging pupils.
A 32-car parking area is in front of
the school.
Attractive glazed brick animal de-

new school a look as modern as

A 39-Year Career

Godrick J. Williams, who retired
June 30 after 39 years of Canal serv-
ice, was too young to help build the
Canal but he did work on the build-
ing of Madden Dam and Thatcher
Highways in the early thirties.
Born in Empire, in 1908, Williams

Dr. Ernest Bynoe

Joins C.Z. Staff/

To Head Section
Ernest F. Bynoe, M.D., one of the
Republic of Panama's leading local
health officers has joined the staff of
the Canal Zone Preventive Medicine
Division as Chief of the School
Health Section.
He comes to the Health Bureau
from dual positions. He served as
Health Officer, Province of Colon, and
Medical Director, Amador Guerrero
Born and reared in Colon, Ernest
Bynoe was graduated from the Na-
tional Institute and obtained his
M.D. from Howard University,
Washington, D.C. He also holds a
master's degree in public health from
Yale University.
Active in many medical projects,
Dr. Bynoe became City Health Offi-
cer for Colon in August 1954. Even-
tually this position enlarged to
Provincial Health Officer. During the
year prior to joining the Panama
Canal he reorganized the school
health service for the City of Colon.
Coupled with his public health and
medical administration, Dr. Bynoe
has remained active with clinical
medicine. He has engaged in private
practice and attended patients clini-
cally while Medical Director at
Amador Guerrero Hospital.
His administrative and clinical
abilities fit him uniquely into the
Canal Zone school health program
where both aspects of medicine come
into play. Dr. Bynoe's program in
the schools includes physical exam-
inations, health counseling, and
supervision of seven school health

Panama Canal's Dredging Division
in 1927. After about a year he trans-
ferred to the Motor Transportation
Division in the same capacity and
remained there for 111/2 years. In
1939, he went to work for the Special
Engineers of the Third Locks Project
as a motorcycle messenger. A year
later he transferred to the Adminis-
tration Building where he remained
until his retirement as a messenger-
courier in the Communications and
Records Branch.
As a youngster Williams was a
tinkerer and amateur repairman. In
his early teens he worked as a helper
mechanic in several Panama garages
and continued repairing radios and
refrigerators. During his garage days
Williams became quite expert in
repairing automobile ignitions and
many Canal officials in the 1920's
would call him to start their cars
when they had ignition problems.
He also drove taxis and recalls that
many tourists came to Panama in
those days (1924-26). Shortly after

Mack F. Bailey, Chief Supervisory
Sanitation Inspector, Southern Sani-
tation Area, Ancon, who searched in
vain for a mosquito that could be
named for him, has retired after more
than 35 years of continuous service
with the Panama Canal Health
In recognition of his efforts to
carry out the sanitation program
organized by Col. William C. Gorgas
in 1904, during early construction
days, Bailey was doubly honored by
the Canal organization on his
He was presented the Master Key
to the Locks Award naming him
"Governor's Fogger" by Canal Zone
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., in a
ceremony held in the Governor's
office. In a second ceremony, at the
office of the Health Bureau Director,
he received a Superior Performance
Award and a check for $150 from
the Health Bureau Director, Col."
Roosevelt Cafarelli.
Bailey recalls that he had only
20 cents in his pocket when he
arrived on the Isthmus to visit his
aunt and uncle who were living here.
Almost immediately he decided to
stay and started to look for work.
His first job was doing construction
work at Albrook Field which was
being built at that time.
It was a long walk through mud
and muck from the Balboa Railroad
Station to where the Albrook Officers
Club stands today. He worked for
3 days at $6 a day and had enough.
After being turned down 6 con-
secutive days at the Health Division,
where he had gone to look for work,
he was hired as a student sanitation
inspector in April 1931 and remained
with the Health Bureau ever since.
His first salary was a cool $60 a
month. It was soon raised to $80, and
then to $150. Bailey moved up the
ladder of promotions and was made
one of the 14 sanitation inspectors
with the Division of Sanitation. In
1955, when sanitation of Panama and
Colon returned to Panamanian super-
vision, he was one of seven sanitation
inspectors retained by the Division.
One of Gorgas' most important
tools in fighting mosquitos was the
concrete drainage ditches constructed
in and around townsites. The ditches
were mopped with oil, oil was
sprayed and set afire to destroy mos-
quito breeding places, marshes were
saturated with the liquid and myriad
other techniques devised to eliminate

places. Location of many of the
first Gorgas drainage ditches is
well-known to Mack Bailey.
He was one of the sanitation in-
spectors proficient in the use of an
engineer Y-level. This is an instru-

digging and establishing effective
Although leveling for drainages
has been discontinued by the Divi-
sion of Sanitation, Bailey laid out
and made profiles of many of the
drainages so vital for mosquito
control and malaria eradication.
Mack Bailey has put away the
Y-level which he found at the sanita-
tion office in Ancon, in 1931. He
didn't find a new species of mosquito
but enjoyed looking for one. "It has
been a pleasant 35 years," says Mack,
"and the only unpleasantness is the
packing and leaving."
Mr. and Mrs. Bailey and their
20-year-old daughter Louise Ann
(Honey) will be staying at the Tivoli
Guest House for a short time before
departing for Alabama.

Canal Sets

Record in

Fiscal 1966
Panama Canal traffic for the fiscal
year that closed June 30 reached a
new high with oceangoing transits
totaling 12,600 ships. This was 397
more big customers of over 300
Panama Canal net tons than used the
waterway last year.
The increase in commercial traffic
in 1966 was not as significant as the
increase in the size of the merchant
ships using the Canal and the in-
crease in the number of U.S.-Govern-
ment ships being sent through the
waterway because of the Vietnam
build up.
The total Panama Canal net ton-
nage for the big merchantmen
transiting during the year came to
79,027,000 tons as compared to
74,850,000 net tons during the pre-
vious fiscal year. In addition there
was a total of 3,980,000 net tons of
U.S. Government owned shipping.
This represents 590 as compared with
only 284 oceangoing U.S.-Govern-
ment vessels during the previous
fiscal year.
In addition to the big ships, the
Panama Canal handled during the
past fiscal year 543 small commercial
ships and 136 small U.S. Government
owned craft.
Final figures for the amount of
commercial freight carried through
the Canal during the year have not
been completed, but it was estimated
that the total would be about
81,500,000 long tons or 5 million tons
more than last year's 76,500,000.

underlying each development. In the

The Canal Zone summer recrea-
tion program is off and running in
the U.S. communities.
Enrollments from registration show
that this will be a banner year.
A unique feature is that late registra-
tions will be accepted anytime during
the summer. If you missed the boat
before, go to your nearest gym or
pool and jump on.
Approximately 1,100 students rang-
ing from ages 5 through 18 have
signed up for the program in the
gymnasiums. Most of the activities
for which these children have regis-
tered meet 4 days a week. The Junior
Basketball program for boys leads the
list in numbers.
In the Junior Basketball League,
the participants are grouped by age,
height, and weight classification
charts into five different leagues. In
the E League for the smallest young-
sters, the basket heights are lowered
and the rules are modified. Most of
the boys in this classification are in
third or fourth grade.
More than 1,100 persons are en-
rolled in the swimming classes at the
Balboa, Curundu, Margarita, Coco
Solo, and Gatun Swimming Pools.
Except for the competitive swimming
teams, these classes meet two or three
times a week. Balboa Pool heads the
list with about 500 in classes. During
some periods in the day, there are as
many as 75 pupils receiving instruc-
tion in this pool at one time.

Radio Amateurs

Take Part in

Field Day Event

Members of the Canal Zone Ama-
teur Radio Association participated in
the Annual Field Day event by
setting up an amateur radio station
recently on Boy -Scout Island at
Fort Amador and operating under
emergency conditions for 24 hours.
Field Day is an annual test for
clubs and groups of ham operators
to demonstrate their ability to set up
and operate an amateur radio station
with portable equipment and an-
tennas, using emergency power. It is
highly competitive with each group
attempting to make as may 2-way
radio contacts as possible during the
24-hour period.
The Canal Zone Amateur Radio
Association station used three trans-
mitters, and made some 500 two-
way radio contacts during the events.
Contacts were made with other sta-
tions in almost every State in the
United States, including Alaska and

Former C.Z. Teacher

Is Big Hit in U.S.

"Joshua Tull will go to any length
to put a little bit more into his teach-
ing-even go so far as South America,"
the San Diego Evening Tribune said
in a recent feature article about a
former Canal Zone schoolteacher who
is now teaching sixth graders in the
Euclid Elementary School in San
Diego, Calif.
Tull made the trip to South Amer-
ica last summer to see the countries
first hand so he could tell his young
pupils about his experiences. He also
stopped in Panama to see his parents
Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Nathaniel Tull
who live in Colon.
The article said that because of
his bilingual background in Panama
Tull was successful in teaching
Spanish to the children in San Diego.
He used to be a singer and he passes
that knowledge along to the students
in a preschool choral program.
He also is president of the South-
east Community Theater and a board
member of the Southeast YMCA.
He is a member of the Y's Men, a
service club within the YMCA.
Mrs. Ima Newberry, principal of
Euclid school had high praise for
Tull. She said he was such an out-
standing, dedicated teacher she
couldn't say enough about him. The
Euclid PTA had given Tull and
honorary life membership in appre-
ciation for his efforts in and out of
the classroom.
Tull was born in Colon and was
educated in the Canal Zone schools.
He was graduated from the former
La Boca Normal School in 1948 and
taught elementary grades in the
former Red Tank elementary school
for 2 years.
He went to the United States in
1951 to continue his education and
obtained a degree from Boston State
College. He also studied at Middle-
burg College in Vermont and at
Harvard University.
He went to San Diego in 1957

(Continued from p. 1)
this time, he went to work for the
Canal organization.
Williams' talents are not limited to
mechanics and electronics. He is also
an amateur photographer and is a
local stringer for the National Broad-
casting Co. He has also sold his
movies to Newsweek Magazine, the
Columbia Broadcasting System and
the National Broadcasting Co.
Williams is the father of seven
children-4 boys and 3 girls-and has
12 grandchildren. The Williams
family lives in Paraiso and is plan-
ning to go to Los Angeles where a
daughter and son live. Godrick
Williams' retirement plans include
taking it easy for a while and then,
perhaps, he will get a job doing what
he likes most of all-repairing radios
and television sets.

because he had heard quite a bit
about the fine schools there, he said.
He liked the weather also. He taught
at the Logan School and Kennedy
School before starting at Euclid.
Tull's father is a retired employee
of the Panama Canal organization.

Corozal Patients Need

More Outside Contacts

Social workers and Corozal Hos-
pital staff members, under the leader-
ship of Hospital Director Renata M.
Schaeffer, M.D., have been working
with the Canal Zone Social Service
staff to increase patients' contacts in
the community.
Miss Clara 0. Wattley, community
organizer on the Social Service staff,
and Robert L. Siedle, social worker
at Corozal Hospital, met recently
with community leaders of the Pedro
Miguel-Paraiso areas to discuss re-
habilitation plans. Meetings in these
communities with patients and their
families are to be scheduled for the
Most of the chronic patients have
been in the hospital almost 20 years.
Some could leave if they had places
to go, but many have lost track of
family members.
These patients build their lives
inside the hospital where most have
few visitors and seldom go out on
pass. To some, the hospital is more
secure than the outside world so they
must be helped to build bridges to
this world outside and become a part
of it once more.
They have to be helped also to
find new relationships in their fam-
ilies and in the community. It is

necessary in some cases to find
missing family members or friends.
Families afraid to have patients back
with them should be taught to accept
the patient and to realize that mental
illness can be cured. This is all part
of the rehabilitation program.
Already a few jobs outside the
hospital have been made available
and Corozal patients have taken them
as stepping stones to a life in the
community. The lack of jobs in this
area is a problem but this is part of
returning to the community.
Patients returning to their families
will be placed on convalescent leave
and will be able to return to the hos-
pital at any time their condition
makes it necessary. Those requiring
medication will continue to receive
it from the hospital.
Family members and friends of
chronic patients are encouraged to
call Corozal Hospital, Balboa 3293
or Balboa 2719, for an appointment
with a social worker to discuss the
rehabilitation program.
Visitors are encouraged at Corozal
and visiting hours are open. Week-
ends and hours after 3 p.m., on week-
days are usually the best times to visit
because most chronic patients work
during the day.

Volunteers to See
Film on Survival
A training film on survival will be
shown at the next monthly meeting
of the Corgas Hospital unit of the
American Red Cross Volunteers.
The meeting will begin 9:30 a.m.,
Monday, in the conference room on
the second floor of the hospital annex.
The film, "Land Survival, Ethnic
Groups," is being loaned to the Red
Cross by the Tropic Survival School
of the U.S. Air Forces Southern Com-
mand, Albrook Air Force Base. The
1352d Photographic Group of the
Military Airlift Command, USAF,
did the filming, part of which was
taken in Panama. Morgan Smith,
director of the school, and his
instructors wrote the script.
Mrs. Robert F. Corrigan, chairman
of the Gorgas volunteers, announced
that Mrs. Ronald Seeley was
appointed secretary of the unit.


Due to injury must be controlled. Development of shock
in severe injury cases may cause the death of the injured
person or delay medical treatment.

Give first aid for shock in all severe injury cases. Do not
wait for symptoms to appear.

Basic Position for Shock Care

1. Keep body level if head injury, breathing difficulty, or
victim complains of feet in elevated position.
2. Prevent loss of body heat by covering under and over
with blanket. Do not overheat or cause victim to
3. If injury permits and victim is conscious, give sips of
water to allay thirst.

que retuvo la Divisi6n.
Uno de los instruments mAs im-
portantes del Dr. Gorgas en su lucha
contra los mosquitos, fueron las
zanjas de drenaje construidas alre-
dedor de los poblados. Se las regaba
con aceite; se prendia fuego al aceite,
para destruir los criaderos de mos-
quitos; los pantanos eran saturados
con aceite, y se utilizaron innumera-
bles otras t6cnicas para eliminar los
criaderos de mosquitos. Mack Bailey
se conoce de memorial la localizaci6n
de muchas de las primeras zanjas de
drenaje del Dr. Gorgas.
El fue uno de los inspectors que
aprendieron a usar el Nivel Y. Es un
instrument usado para levantar
plans de drenajes de manera que
sean perfectamente efectivos.
A pesar de que esta labor no la
efectia ya la Divisi6n de Sanidad,
Bailey hizo los plans de muchos de
estos drenajes, tan vitales en el
control de los mosquitos y en la
erradicaci6n de la malaria.
Mack ya guard su Nivel Y, que
encontr6 en la oficina de sanidad, en
Anc6n, en 1931. JamAs encontr6 una
nueva especie de mosquito, pero goz6
tratando de encontrarla. "Han sido
35 afios placenteros", dice Mack, "lo
unico que no lo es, es tener que hacer
las maletas y partir. Es mAs fAcil
venir acA que partir".
Los esposos Bailey y su hija Louise
Ann (Honey), de 20 afios de edad,
permanecerAn por corto tiempo en la
Casa de Huespedes Tivoli, antes de
partir para Alabama, donde Mack
Bailey, ve muchas excursions de
caza y de pesca en su future.

El significado de la palabra Gat6n
ha interesado a muchos, especial-
mente porque pareciera ser de origen
indio. Pero las dos acepciones que
tenemos indican que proviene de una
palabra castellana. Unos dicen que la
palabra Gatun viene de "gato", por-
que el rio de ese nombre es de curso
lento y ondulado, al igual que un
gato. Otros dicen que la palabra
Gatdn viene de otra muy castiza:
"gatuneros". Se llama asi a los mal-
hechores que venden care de ganado
robado. Y explican que, cuando se
comenz6 a utilizar la ruta del Cha-
gres para cruzar el Istmo de Panamd,
donde ahora estd la gran represa de
Gatun existia un villorrio indio, donde
los gatuneros vendian care de gana-
do robado. Lo llamaban "Pueblo de
los Gatuneros". Con el tiempo, el
nombre qued6 reducido a "Gatune-
ros". Los franceses recortaron la pala-
bra a Gattln y ast qued6. ,Cudl de
las dos acepciones le gusta a used?
A nosotros nos gusta mrds la segunda.
