THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal Museum

Vol. VI, No. 21 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Thursday, November 9, 1967

An underwater inspection of the Cris-
tobal breakwater to check on causes
of its gradual settling. Above is A. P.
(Tony) Mann, Chief, Civil Engineer-
ing Branch, and at left, Robert H.
Stewart, supervisory geologist. Large
coral growths, some estimated to be
30 to 40 years old, were found on
many of the concrete blocks used to
build up the breakwater. These re-
vealed that the blocks are not being
broken up or displaced by wave
action. Sediments around the base of
the breakwater indicate that the mate-
rials are being built up by wave action
and currents, rather than being eroded
away. The diver-engineer and diver-
geologist go underwater only to
observe or investigate and do not per-
form salvage or underwater construc-
tion, which is performed by Pan-
Canal's professional divers.

Requests for information on pricing
policy were made during the recent
U.S. Civic Council Executive Session.
The subject was raised by Mrs.
Doris Sanders, president of the Cris-
tobal-Margarita-Brazos Heights Civic
Council, who noted that the price of
gasoline was going up. Mrs. Sanders
asked for an explanation of the in-
crease and wanted to know if gas
sales subsidize other types of mer-
Gov. W. P. Leber, presiding over
the meeting, replied that prices are
not always related directly to cost.
Marketing phases of the Canal orga-
nization are intended to show neither
a profit nor a loss, the Governor
pointed out. "We should be breaking
even but we are not doing it." There-
fore, marketing areas operating in the
red must be offset by prices of other
goods or services.
In the case of gasoline, he continued,
purchase contracts are awarded to the
lowest bidder. The cost of petroleum
on the world market has increased
recently, partially due to the Middle
East situation, and may not yet
have hit its peak, Governor Leber
Capt. Howard Buehler, president'
of the Pacific Civic Council, con-
tinuing the discussion of prices, said
the cost of groceries in the United
States appears to be lower than in
the Canal Zone. The Governor re-
ported that two separate "market
basket" surveys taken in the Canal

Zone indicated that the typical food
shopper paid less for his groceries
than his counterpart in the United
States. Merchandising is a complex
operation that is being studied con-
stantly for improvement, he added.
It was suggested by Mrs. Darlene
Ashby, first vice president of the
Pacific Civic Council, and by Richard
Bjorneby, second vice president of
the Coco Solo Civic Council, that the
Company develop a breakdown of
merchandising operations for review
by the Council. The Governor said
something of this type could be
looked into.
School hours was another key issue
discussed at the session.
Governor Leber asked the Civic
Council officers for opinions on a
suggested change in hours for ele-
mentary schools which could be
initiated before next semester if so
desired by the public. The suggested
changes resulted from a study by the
Division of Schools which found that:
Students are tired during the long
afternoon session having lunch hour
from 11 a.m. to noon; buses are un-

Veterans Day

Meaning Now

Much Broader
A Veterans Day message from Gov.
W. P. Leber:
"Veterans Day is a time to recog-
nize the men and women who, over
the years, have served in the Armed
Forces of the United States. They
number in the millions. They belong
to different periods in our Nation's
history and represent a cross-section
of our citizenry.
"But they have shared a common
task: that of helping to preserve the
fundamental rights of man and the
dignity of the individual. Many gave
their lives for these cherished ideals
and more are continuing to do so
"The responsibility of safeguard-
ing freedom has been thrust upon us
anew. Our men and women are again
answering the call. When the present
conflict will be resolved no one can
say with certainty.
"The significance of November 11
is therefore no longer limited to the
commemoration of the 1918 signing
of the Armistice ending World War I
as it once was. Veterans Day, as we
now know it, carries with it a broader
meaning, a salute to all those who
are wearing and have worn the
uniform of our country."




Palm Bowl

Grid Game

All indications are that tomorrow
night's Palm Bowl will be one of the
best games seen in many a year. Game
time is 7:30 p.m. in Balboa Stadium.
As a result of last Thursday's game
between CZC and CHS at Tiger
Stadium, BHS fell into second place
in the Interscholastic standings.
Accordingly, Coach Stewart Brown
will select and coach the All-Star
team. Since the record between CHS
and BHS has been so close, it is ex-
pected that the All-Star team will
have about equal representation from
both schools.
For the past 2 years, the Palm Bowl
has ended in a tie. Last year CZC was
tied by the All-Zone team coached
by Doug Litton of CHS.
Mr. Music from the Gold Coast,
Edward Carwithen, has arranged an
interesting half-time show entitled
"Drill Extravaganza." The combined
bands of Balboa High School and
Cristobal High School under the di-
rection of Bert Thompson and Carwi-
then, will provide'an excellent musical
The Palm Bowl will not be tele-
vised, so come out to "the old ball
park" and enjoy a night of fun and
entertainment while helping to fill
the tills for the United Fund. Accord-
ing to ticket sales managers Joe Wood
and Burt Mead, the stadium ticket
office will open for business on game
night at 6 p.m.

Questions Raised on Pric

Governor Urges Participation

In Ceremonies on Veterans Day

President Lyndon B. Johnson has
issued a proclamation which details
the significance of Veterans Day,
November 11, and urges all citizens,
particularly young people, to par-
ticipate in ceremonies marking this
solemn day.
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber, call-
ing attention to the President's pro-
clamation, pointed out that appro-
priate observances will be held in the
Canal Zone. Governor Leber expressed
the wish that as many Canal Zone
residents as possible attend these
The text of the President's procla-
"We Americans hold freedom as
our birthright. We cherish it as the
basic condition of our national life.
"But we are deeply mindful of its
"Our freedom was won in the
agony of conflict. Two centuries later,
we enjoy its blessings only because
men have been willing to risk their
lives to preserve it.
"Again today, in a complex and
bitter war, America's sons must fight
in freedom's defense. None before
them have fought more bravely, or
with greater devotion to America's
cause, than those who serve us now
in Vietnam.
"We can never repay in full the
debt we owe to the veterans of this
Nation's wars.
"Yet we can show our appreciation
of their service and sacrifice. Through
the G.I. Bill of Rights, we endeavor
to ease the serviceman's return to
civilian life. As a result of the Vet-
erans' Act of 1967, men in uniform
today can receive benefits comparable
to those granted their brothers-in-
arms of past conflicts.
"For almost three decades, it has
been a proud American tradition to
observe each year a special day of
gratitude to all of America's veterans.
"To this end the Congress has de-
signated the eleventh of November as
a legal holiday to be known as Vet-

erans Day, and has dedicated it to
the cause of world peace (Act of
May 13, 1938, 52 Stat. 351, as
amended (5 U.S.C. 6103)).
DON B. JOHNSON, President of the
United States of America, urge the
people of this Nation to join in com-
memorating Saturday, November 11,
1967, as Veterans Day with suitable
"I direct the appropriate officials of
the Government to arrange for the
display of the flag of the United States
on all public buildings on that day;
and I request the officials of Federal,
State, and local governments, and
civic and patriotic organizations to
give their enthusiastic leadership and
support to appropriate public cere-
monies throughout the Nation.
"I urge all citizens, and especially
students and young people, to take
part in these ceremonies. Let us de-
monstrate to all the world our devo-
tion to the principles of freedom for
which so many have served in the
past, and pledge our full support of
those who today carry on the battle
to insure that freedom shall survive."

The "Wahoo II" and "Drum," new aluminum launches, are the second and third of seven new utility launches the
Panama Canal Marine Bureau is placing in operation in gradual replacement of wood utility launches. The first
was the "Growler," which has been in service for approximately a year in Cristobal Harbor. Two additional
launches of the same basic configuration as the "Wahoo II," "Growler," and "Drum" are to be delivered prior
to the end of the year. Contracts for the last two launches are expected to be awarded sometime in January
1968, with August delivery scheduled. The "Wahoo II" and "Drum," were built by Camcraft, of Crown Point, La.,
are 42 feet long, have 11-foot beam, and are diesel powered. The "Growler" is 42 feet long and was built by
Sewart Seacraft, of Berwick, La.

10:50-This Is The Life

Continuously improving medical
techniques are relieving women of
much of the anxiety associated with
cancer, which remains an imposing
challenge to science.
Partial freedom from preoccupa-
tion is based on the accomplishment
of one man, Dr. George N. Papani-
colau. More than 30 years ago he
developed a highly efficient method
of detecting cancer of the cervix-the
second d most common killer of women.
The pap smear test, as it is now called,
is used in hospitals throughout the
world and is administered routinely
when women undergo annual check-
aier, ups at Canal Zone hospitals.
ring The test is fast, simple, painless
the and inexpensive; elaborate equipment
ver- is not required though well trained
tion personnel is. Its tremendous value lies
e. in the fact that the pap smear test
can detect cancer of the cervix while
there is a 100 percent chance of cure.
Physicians rate the efficiency of
the pap test at about 98 percent. This
coupled with the knowledge that it
takes approximately 5 years for cancer
of the cervix to develop means that a
woman who receives a pap smear test
each year has almost no chance of the
disease going undetected.
The Panama Canal Health Bureau
officials and the Canal Zone Cancer
Committee, which lend their support
to the detection program, urge all
adult women to have annual pap
smear tests. Dr. Alvin Sholk, chief of
the Obstetrics-Gynecology Depart-
6 ment at Gorgas Hospital, suggests
that women do it the month of their
birthday. It's easier to remember that
way and the resultant work load is
distributed through the year.
Women eligible for treatment at
Canal Zone hospitals can make
arrangements by calling the Obste-
trics-Gynecology Department at Gor-
gas or Coco Solo Hospital. Military
dependents can have the same exam-
ination performed at the places where
they normally receive medical treat-
Class slides on which the pap
smears are made go directly to the
laboratory at Gorgas Hospital where
they are studied under microscopes
by cyto-technologists. These screeners
are graduates of approved schools of
cytology, a branch of biology con-
cerned with the study of cells.


16 Vehicles Being Offered for Bids

Sixteen Canal Zone-owned motor
vehicles are being offered for bids
which should be received in the office
of the Chief, Division of Storehouses,
Balboa, before 9:30 a.m., Novem-
ber 17.
The vehicles include six 2-door
sedans that were police cars; nine
4-door sedans (one air conditioned),
and a station wagon.
One 2-door sedan and one 4-door
sedan may be seen at the Cristobal
Storehouse. All the others are at the
Excess Disposal Unit, Building 42,
Balboa, where J. R. Doran, manager,
should be contacted. Those interested
may inspect the vehicles, on the
Pacific and the Atlantic sides of the
Isthmus, any working day Monday
through Friday from 7 to 11 a.m. and
from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Sealed bids may be submitted,

each accompanied by a bid deposit
of 25 percent of the total amount bid.
The deposit may be in the form of
cash, a postal or express money order
payable in dollars, a certified check,
a manager's or cashier's check pay-
able in United States dollars on a
recognized bank in the Republic of
Panama, the Canal Zone, or the
United States, acceptable to the Pan-
ama Canal organization.
Checks should be made payable to
the Panama Canal Company. The
envelope should have the bid invita-
tion number: S-67-634 on the front
and the address: Chief, Division of
Storehouses, Drawer BB, Balboa,
Bids may be entered by all per-
sons with Canal Zone privileges and
by business firms in Panama.

The Canal Zone Cancer Committee
hopes to send another technologist to
the United States for training so the
slide screening can be speeded up.
The screeners examine the shape,
size, and staining qualities of the cells'
nucleus and cytoplasm. The vast
majority of smears show no abnor-
malities and are designated as Class
1. Those that appear to have some
type of abnormality are examined
further by Dr. L. R. Kieger, chief of
Laboratory Services at Gorgas Hos-
pital, or by his assistant, Dr. Ken-
neth R. Holloman, both of whom are
In cases of mild but benign abnor-
malities, listed as Class 2, the women
are notified and asked to return for
reexamination every 3 to 6 months.
They are not prodded with sub-

sequent reminders from the hospital,
however. If a pap smear shows a sus-
picion of a malignancy, a biopsy is
taken and a plan of treatment is
formulated should the suspicion be
The number of detected, curable
cancer cases has increased propor-
tionately with the rise in the number
of pap smears taken since the detec-
tion work began at Gorgas Hospital
in 1956. Last year, 8,000 slides were
screened and the lives of 23 women
saved as a result. This year's slide
total will be more than 12,000.
Canal Zone physicians implore
every woman to make an appoint-
ment for a pap smear test if it has
been a year since the last one.
This is too important to procrasti-
nate to a "more convenient" time.



The pap smear screening work done at Gorgas Hospital laboratory requires
highly trained personnel. It is the responsibility of Dr. L. R. Hieger, chief
of Laboratory Services at Gorgas Hospital, and Dr. Kenneth R. Holloman,
assistant chief, who is shown here, to study slides showing suspicions of cell
abnormality. In the background, Mrs. Amelia Bell, a medical technologist,
prepares to view a slide through a microscope.

La Villa de Los Santos y los Piratas

Todos los afios el Virrey del Peru
enviaba buques cargados de tesoros
para reponer las areas del Monarca
espafiol, los cuales tenian que transi-
tar por ]a Bahia de PanamA.
Durante los siglos XVI y XVII, la
mayor parte del litoral Pacifico pana-
mefio se vio asaltado por pirates, fili-
busteros y bucaneros. Estos, entera-
dos de los convoyes que traian el te-
soro real desde el Peril, navegaban
siempre al acecho en las rutas acos-
El Virrey del Peril, al darse cuenta
del peligro, orden6 cambiar la ruta.
El tesoro se conduciria al Puerto de
Cubita, en el rio de La Villa y desde
alli se transportaria en mulas a Pana-
ma, con lo cual engafi6 a los pirates.
El pirata Townley, al verse bur-
lado, resolvi6 atacar las poblaciones
importantes de Centro America y
como el botin no fue lo que espera-
ban, decidi6 entonces, volver al Golfo
de PanamA. El domingo 12 de junior
de 1686 Ileg6 a la Villa de Los Santos
y por ser domingo, el pueblo estaba
reunido escuchando misa; fue asi
como pudo hacer prisionero, s6lo con
cerrar las puertas de la iglesia, a casi

todo el pueblo, con excepci6n de
algunos pobladores.
Al aduefiarse del pueblo, encontr6
Townley parte del tesoro real, el cual
trat6 de transportar a los buques pira-
tas, junto con algunos prisioneros,
pertenecientes a las mejores families,

El Alcalde, decidido a perseguirlos,
form un grupo de voluntarios, con
los que pudo rescatar parte del tesoro
y tomarles prisioneros algunos pirates
los cuales fueron decapitados en
venganza por su crueldad.
La contestaci6n no se hizo esperar.
Al dia siguiente vieron clavadas en
estacas ensangrentadas media docena
de cabezas de los prisioneros santefios.
El Alcalde sigui6 su fuerte perse-
cuci6n, hasta que los pirates llegaron
a los buques y fue entonces cuando
Townley le propuso al Alcalde, el
rescate de los prisioneros a cambio de
10,000 pesos y la care salada de

El Capitin Richard C. Sergeant, Capitan del Puerto de Balboa (al extreme
izquierdo), felicita a Manuel E. Serrano, luego de entregarle a Serrano y a
Pablo Forbes (segundo a la derecha), una carta de encomio por su habilidad
en evitar un accident que hubiera causado dafios o la p6rdida de las lanchas
a su cargo. La carta de encomio se refiere a la pericia demostrada por Serrano
y Forbes, el 9 de octubre de 1967, a las 2 p.m., al retirar sus lanchas del lugar
donde estaban, cuando se dieron cuenta de que el remolcador "John F.
Wallace", que asistia a una nave gigantesca a entrar a las Esclusas de Pedro
Miguel, iba a golpearlas. "Su rApida acci6n de cortar las amarras y" llevar las
lanchas a aguas abiertas evit6 el daflo o la perdida de propiedad valiosa del
Canal de Panami", dice la carta de encomio. Robert K. Adams, Maestre de
Rada de Balboa (segundo desde la izquierda), asiste complacido al acto.
