Vol. V, No. 34 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, February 10, 1967

January 31, 1967
Dear Governor Fleming:
I accept your resignation as Governor of the Canal Zone, effective
as of your retirement from active duty with the Army, with reluctance
tempered by gratitude for the job you have done.
Your service as Governor has been longer than that of any other
Governor since General Goethals, the builder of the Canal. During your
administration, the Canal operation has advanced in efficiency and
accomplishment, moving an ever-increasing number of ships expeditiously
and safely and setting new records in service to world commerce. The
fact that these records have been established despite critical events and
fundamental changes bears witness to your achievements over the past
five years, and provides a fitting climax to forty-two years of distinguished
service to our country.
I speak for all Americans in expressing my gratitude for your accom-
plishments. May health, success and happiness follow you in your


Honorable Robert J. Fleming, Jr.
Governor of the Canal Zone

PC Meets Safety Goal

The Panama Canal organization
already has reached President John-
son's "Safety-70" accident reduction
goal-3 years ahead of the target year.
Accident figures for calendar year
1966 show a 21 percent reduction
from 1965 and a 33 percent improve-
ment since 1963. This exceeds Pres-
ident Johnson's goal of a 30 percent
improvement by 1970 (1963 is the
base year).
The disabling injuries report for
1966 also shows a 53 percent acci-
dent cost reduction compared with

Many things made the improve-
ment possible, according to Warren
H. Smith, chief, Safety Branch.
Better supervision, greatly in-
creased safety and job training, safety
orientation of new employees, and
effective safety committees were
credited by him as playing impor-
tant roles in the success of the
He pointed out, however, that
there's still room for improvement in
some bureaus and units, as not all of
them showed improvement in 1966.

Scheduled for return to the Canal
Zone as Governor is Brig. Gen.
Walter P. Leber, who served as lieu-
tenant governor June 1961 to April
1963. His nomination for the chief
executive position was announced

eral Leber has been serving as direc-
tor of civil works in the office of the

Traffic through the Panama Canal
in January reached a new monthly
high for this fiscal year as 1,116
oceangoing ships transited during the
31-day period. The total brought the
daily average to 36 ships.
The month's traffic was surpassed
only during March 1966 and March
1965, two 31-day months when there
were 1,117 and 1,119 oceangoing
transits, respectively.
During January two ships took
advantage of the 40-foot tropical
fresh water draft permitted by the
Panama Canal to certain deep draft
vessels. They were the 739-foot San
Juan Merchant, northbound Jan-
uary 4, and the 800-foot Essi Gina,
southbound January 13.
Six others transited with a draft
of 39 feet or more. They were the
San Martin Maru, La Estancia, the
Shozen Maru, the Atherstone, Dimi-

Lost "Wealth"
"The wealth of an organization is
its people. Today, with your retire-
ment, the Panama Canal organiza-
tion is losing some of its wealth,"
said Acting Governor of the Canal
Zone H. R. Parfitt in his talk at the
January retirement ceremony, held
in the Board Room of the Adminis-
tration Building, Balboa Heights.
He added that he recognized that
many of those retiring had been
working many years and he voiced
appreciation of the efforts of all
connected with the Canal enterprise.
"The well wishes and thanks of the
administration and the United States
Government go with you," said
Acting Governor Parfitt.
Retirement certificates were re-
ceived by 34 Panama Canal em-
ployees. Fifteen of these employees
had more than 30 years' U.S. Govern-
ment service.
A special round of applause was
given John A. Madison, General
Foreman, Locks Operations, dean in
point of service at the January retire-
ment ceremony. His service of more
than 4 decades all had been with the
Panama Canal organization and, in
recognition, he was presented by
Acting Governor Parfitt a Master

tri, and the Yakumosan Maru. All
were carrying heavy bulk cargoes.
As recently as February 3 another
super ship made her maiden transit.
She was the Japan Oak, a 734-foot
giant with a 104-foot beam which
arrived with a cargo of 51,236 long
tons of coal from Norfolk for Japan.
The Japan Oak is the sister ship of
the San Martin Maru, which transited
the Canal twice in January at a draft
of more than 39 feet.
Although ship traffic was at a
record high and rising stem valve
overhaul called for single culvert
operation at Miraflores Locks, ships
spent only 13.6 hours average time
in Canal Zone waters, or slightly
under the 13.8-hour average set
during calendar year 1966.
Because the level of Gatun Lake
is remaining above 86.5 feet, the
current 40-foot draft allowance will
be continued until February 15, at
which time the maximum tropical
fresh water draft allowance will be
lowered to 39 feet, 6 inches.

142 Employees'

Service Totals

Over 4,500 Years
An appreciation of service cere-
mony in honor of 142 Panama Canal
employees with 30- and 40-year
length of service records, respectively,
for a total of 4,520 years' Canal
service, was held at the Tivoli Guest
Acting Gov. H. R. Parfitt, the
principal speaker, thanked the em-
ployees for their contribution to the
Panama Canal organization and said
"we look to you, with 30 and 40
years' service, to provide leadership
and guidance for those coming
behind you."
Upon reaching this particular mile-
stone, he said he hoped each em-
ployee entertained three sentiments:
Pride in belonging to a tremendous
organization that represents expertise
and efficiency through 53 years of
operation; knowledge that the job
each one is doing is important, for
the Panama Canal employees repre-
sent a wide diversity of skills and
trades, each important in the opera-
tion; and third, pride in the way each
one does his work, with the knowl-
edge of doing a job well.
Acting Governor Parfitt presented
each employee his service certificate

By Emily J. Price
Marva Hasselblad, a young Amer-
ican nurse, tells about her life at a
hospital in Vietnam in Lucky-lucky.
Written in a simple and unsensa-
tional way, the book presents a very
close look at the people of a little
coastal town in South Vietnam. The
facts of their difficult and poverty-
stricken lives are not glossed over, but
one remembers chiefly their patience
and unfailing gentle courtesy. This
is an appealing and memorable book.
A World Elsewhere is a novel by
a young Englishman, John Bowen. It
concerns a British cabinet member
who resigns his office and goes to
Greece to write a book. As he writes
his version of an ancient Greek
legend, the parallel experience of his
own political life becomes apparent.
When his party calls him to return,
he finds illumination from the classic
past. The author cleverly interweaves
the old story and the new-and
peoples both with vivid characters.
G. Alison Raymond's book Half
the World's People is about women.
It is a clear and sympathetic state-
ment of the status of women in a
changing world and maintains that

A rescue and restoration operation by the Fort Clayton Officers' Wives' Club resulted in the hanging of the plaque
above in Gorgas Hospital's New Annex, in honor of the hospital's Directors of Nursing. The plaque was viewed
in its new location by Mrs. Edward E. Betts (second from left), president of the Fort Clayton Officers' Wives'
Club; Mrs. Arthur Peak (far left), vice president of the club; William Gaudy. assistant director, Gorgas Hospital;
and Mrs. John Knick (right), assistant director of nurses at Gorgas. The plaque, dated 1896-1946, originally was
hung in the waiting room in the old section of Gorgas Hospital. When hospital activities were moved to the New
Annex, the plaque, old and dim, was slated for discard. Mrs. Helen Weiss, R.N., a member of the Fort Clayton
Officers' Wives' Club, brought the matter of the plaque to the club members' attention. The restoration work
was accomplished by this organization, new backing was added, and the names of the eight Directors of Nursing
at Gorgas, since the hospital opened, inscribed. The inscription on the plaque is "In honor of Mary Eugenie Hibbard,
nurse, patriot, gentlewoman, humanitarian, friend. She rendered outstanding service to the development of better
health in the tropics."

Fivoli Fopic4

The other day I happened to over-
hear an interesting conversation, and
would like to pass it on to you. It
went like this:
"Real Mexican food in Panama?
The real thing, with tacos and chili
sauce and all the rest? I don't
believe it.
"Si, senior. There is genuine Mexi-
can food here-and its delicioso!"
"Aw, c'mon. It can't be that good.
Bet its too bland or something. Only
place you get good Mexican food is
in Mexico."
"No, Sefior. It's the real thing,
prepared just as in Mexico. Some
Mejicanos went and tried it, and
even they couldn't tell the difference.
It's perfect, exquisite. They had
Tacos, Enchiladas, Chili con Carne
with Rice, Frijoles Fritos, Cole
Slaw estilo Mejicano, Micha Rolls,
Relish Tray, Assorted P.astries, and
"Don't stop now. Tell me where
I can find all this."
"At the Tivoli Guest House, Sefior,
on Monday, February 13. You call
2-2111 for reservations at one of the
seatings. They have three of them-
at 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30 p.m. You
see, as well as preparing Mexican
food even better than in Mexico, they
treat their customers right by offer-
ing convenient seating hours. Ah,
I almost forgot. The precio! Only
$1.50 for adults and $1 for nifios.
And not only that-you can buy a
Frozen Daiquiri before dinner for
just 25 pesos-excuse me, cents. Hey,
Senior! Where are you going?"
"To the Tivoli, of course. To make
my reservations for the Mexican
Night Buffet!
Sunday should be the most peace-
ful day of the week. A day when
one should relax from the week's ten-
sions, go to church, read the Sunday
papers, and enjoy a quiet, leisurely

Orville Findley Rush, Imperial
Potentate of the Shrine of the World,
and other Shrine officials, were
scheduled to visit points of interest
on the Isthmus today.
Arriving at Cristobal aboard the
Grace liner Santa Paula, the group
was to travel by special train to
Camboa for a partial transit of the
Canal aboard the Panama Canal
launch Las Cruces and visit Mira-
flores Locks.
Besides being Imperial Potentate,
Rush is chairman of the board of
directors of 19 Shrine Hospitals for
Crippled Children and 3 Burns Insti-
tutes serving the young. These facil-
ities are dedicated to providing free
medical aid to children.

at 15 he was named editor of the
city's only newspaper, the Bessemer

Heroine Janet Lynn Kinsey, 11, Junior Girl Scout of Troop 53, Balboa,
proudly holds the recognition certificate she was awarded for her quick
thinking and action in saving the life of Mark Fiori, age 6, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Dante Fiori of Curundu. The award was presented her by Mrs. Dan E.
Straight (left), outgoing president of Canal Zone Girl Scout Council, Inc.,
at the annual meeting. Janet, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Kinsey of
Balboa, had gone swimming with the Fiori family at Fort Kobbe beach.
Mark, who was trying to swim, lost his balance. His sister, Victoria, 8,
grabbed him but was not strong enough to hold Mark against the force of
the waves. Her calls for help brought Janet, who got Mark out of the water
and safely onto the beach. The delegates of the Council voted, at the annual
meeting, to make application to the Girl Scouts of the United States of
America for a Life Saving Award for Janet.

Balboa Port Captain R. C. Sergeant presents Emley M. Henter a Quality

Entre los Jubilad
"La riqueza de una empresa la
constituyen las personas que trabajan
en ella. Hoy, con su jubilaci6n, el
Canal de Panama pierde algo de sus
riquezas", dijo el Gobernador Inte-
rino de la Zona del Canal H. R. Par-
fitt, en sus palabras a los que se jubi-
laron en enero, durante una ceremo-
nia que tuvo lugar en el Sal6n de
Conferencias del Edificio de Admi-

que reconocia que muchos de los que
se jubilaban habian trabajado muchos
afios y express su agradecimiento por
los esfuerzos de todos los relaciona-
dos con la empresa del Canal.
"Los mejores deseos y el agrade-
cimiento de la administraci6n y del
Gobierno de los Estados Unidos irAn
con ustedes", dijo el Gobernador
Interino Parfitt.
Treinta y cuatro empleados del
Canal de Panama recibieron sus cer-
tificados de jubilaci6n. Quince de
esos empleados tenian mAs de 30
afios de servicios al Gobierno de
Estados Unidos.
A media que cada empleado era
llamado, iba recibiendo su certificado
de manos del Gobernador Interino,
quien les dirigia a cada uno un men-
saje personal de agradecimiento.
Igual cosa hizo cada uno de los Jefes

millas de las Rectas Bas Obispo-Las
Cascadas del Corte Gaillard han te-
nido un buen comienzo.
La dinamitaci6n avanza en la ri-
bera occidental del Canal, exacta-
mente al sur de Gamboa. Grupos de
dinamiteros se preparan para cada
explosion. Cada grupo consiste en un
hombre que mide la profundidad del
agujero, un cebador que junta la cAp-
sula detonante a la mecha y un car-
gador que vierte el nitrato explosive
de amonio en los agujeros. (Fotos en
la secci6n inglesa.)
La gelatina de amoniaco se utiliza
como detonante. Despubs que se ha
perforado los agujeros de 3% pulga-
das de diametro, se tapan con hierba
para evitar que caigan piedras y des-
perdicios en los agujeros.
Cada explosion se coordina por
medio de sefialeros y equipo de radio,
y lanchas proporcionadas por el
Ramo de Topografia permanecen

cerca para verificar cualquier mate-
rial que caiga dentro del cauce del
Canal. Se utiliza tambien una camara
de cine de alta velocidad y un sis-
m6grafo para analizar los efectos

Estimado Gobernador Fleming:
Acepto su renuncia como Gobernador de la Zona del Canal, que sera
efectiva al mismo tiempo que su retire del servicio active en el Ej6rcito,
con renuencia y con gratitud por el trabajo que usted ha cumplido.
Su servicio como Gobernador ha sido mis largo que el de cualquier
otro Gobernador, desde el General Goethals, constructor del Canal.
Durante su administraci6n, la operaci6n del Canal ha progresado en
eficiencia y en logros, haciendo transitar un nu6mero siempre creciente
de naves, expedita y seguramente, y estableciendo nuevas marcas en el
servicio al comercio mundial. El hecho de que se haya establecido estas
marcas a pesar de graves acontecimientos y cambios fundamentals, es la
mejor prueba de sus logros durante los 6ltimos cinco afios, y proporciona
una culminaci6n adecuada a sus cuarenta y dos afios de servicios
distinguidos a nuestro pais.
Hablo a nombre de todos los estadounidenses al expresarle mi gratitude
por sus logros. Que la salud, el exito y la felicidad lo acompafien en su

destino al Jap6n. El Japan Oak es

H A los trabajadores les gusta oir una palabra de estimulo o recibir una
S -. palmadita amistosa en la espalda, en reconocimiento por un trabajo bien
SLes gusta poder opinar . poder expresarse por si mismos, de la misma
formnna que consideran important escuchar a los demAs.
qH"..; Les gusta que se les diga cuando han cometido un error, pero que se les
diga en tal forma que les permit evitar nuevos errors sin tener que sufrir
por ellos.
SCreen que los sentimientos estrictamente personales deben ser aislados
"-del trabajo en si.
Reconocen que la industrial y los negocios modernos son muy complicados,
que es much gente la que compare la responsabilidad del exito de una
organizaci6n modern.
Les gusta ser informados sobre todos los asuntos relacionados con sus
trabajos, tales como cambios de procedimientos y de normas; y cuando es
possible les gusta tener voz en la preparaci6n de los cambios.
EstAn convencidos de que el decirles "Podria usted . ?" los mueve
a hacer los trabajos much me or que el decirles "Vaya y ......" Tambidn
.\"-. mque el decir "gracias" es algo que no s6lo debe oirse sino tambi6n decirse
a con mayor frecuencia de lo que se hace nonrmahnente.
Saben que una sonrisa es algo muy important en las relaciones humans.
Y, a prop6sito, para fruncir el cefio es necesario mover 72 msisculos mientras
que para sonreir solamente se emplean 14.
Y finalmente, saben que el estar verdaderamente interesados en la gente
es de la mayor importancia, es decir, ser cordial, considerado y estar dispuesto
a prestar una ayuda.

pero queda el guerrero piel roja contra el fondo de las palmeras.
