Salvage Experts Study

PanCanal Capabilities

A study of the Panama Canal
salvage capabilities is being made-at
the request of the Panama Canal or-
ganization-by two salvage experts
from the United States, one of them
a former Panama Canal master diver
and salvage master.
Making the on-the-spot survey are
William Badders, formerly head of
the Industrial Division diving and
salvage operation, and Capt. Bruce
McCloskey, U.S. Navy Reserve, a
consultant to the Navy Supervisor of
Panama Canal readiness to effec-
tively handle marine accidents is
under constant review. The purpose
of its present study is to determine
the best utilization of Panama Canal
resources in various emergencies
which might arise; types of modern
equipment which should be acquired,
and the kinds of training best suited
for personnel for whom salvage and
control of oil spillage are secondary
Conferences have been held during
the past 2 weeks with representatives

Civic Council

Members Told

Of Rent Hike
A U.S. housing rental increase of
12 percent, the first in 3 years, will
go into effect in July, it was
announced by Gov. W. P. Leber at
the U.S. Civic Council executive
session held in the Board Room at
the Administration Building.
Governor Leber also presented
the members a draft of "Tentative
Specification for a Leash Law" in the
Canal Zone.
If the Canal organization covered
all costs and brought maintenance up
to the level it should be, the rental
increase would have zoomed about
40 percent, the Governor said. He
pointed out that this was too much
of an increase for one step. By cut-
ting back on some items, a 17 per-
cent increase was arrived at. This also
was deemed too high for one jump.
The announced 12 percent increase
is designed to cover wage increases
which, since 1966, brought technical
skilled Panama Canal workers a 12
percent increase and gave unskilled
labor a 54 percent increase. In con-
tract work, he said, the minimum
wage went up 28 percent, from $1.25
to $1.60.
Mrs. Doris Sanders, president,
Cristobal Margarita Brazos Heights
Civic Council, asked what percentage
of the rent goes toward maintenance.
Governor Leber answered that in
1968 it is about 60 percent.
Mrs. Sanders then queried whether,
with a rental increase, a larger per-
centage of the money will go into
"Yes," said Governor Leber, "but
not up to the level you'd like to see
and I'd like to see."
Governor Leber noted that each
member at this executive session had
a copy of the "Tentative Specifica-
tions for a Leash Law" and said he
would appreciate having suggestions
brought to the next meeting, prefer-
ably after discussion with the indi-
vidual Civic Councils.
Under the proposal, it would be
unlawful to allow a dog to run at
large within any townsite. A dog

of nearly every operating unit and
division in the Canal organization.
Special emphasis has been given the
traffic growth in both volume and
size of vessels, and the unavoidable
increases in the potentials for colli-
sions, stranding, fire, and explosion.
Both men are highly qualified in
their fields and both have had con-
siderable experience in Navy and
civilian salvage operations.
Badders, who now lives in Anna-
polis, Md., was retired from the U.S.
Navy as a master diver in 1940 after
more than 20 years of service. He
joined the Canal organization imme-
diately afterwards and in addition to
taking charge of the Panama Canal
salvage facilities, established the
Panama Canal Diving School and de-
signed and set up its curriculum.
At the time of his retirement in
1963, a total of 112 divers held grad-
uation certificates from the diving
school in addition to a number of
others from Central American coun-
tries. Badders also conducted numer-
ous marine salvage jobs and super-
vised diving operations as part of the
Industrial Division salvage capabili-
Captain McCloskey has more than
35 years experience in naval and
marine operations including marine
construction, repair, and deep sea
salvage. He served with the Navy
during World War II and later took
part in the clearance of harbors in
the Philippine Islands.
During the Korean War he was
Salvage Officer, Commander, Naval
Forces, Philippines and at one time
was Assistant Supervisor of Salvage.

By the Governor of the Canal Zone
Wednesday, May first, is desig-
nated the eleventh annual LAW DAY
U.S.A. by joint resolution of the
Congress of the United States and
by Presidential proclamation.
The objectives of Law Day estab-
lished by Congress are to set aside
a special day of celebration by the
American people in appreciation of
their liberties and for the reaffirma-
tion of their loyalty to the United
States of America; of their rededica-
tion to the ideals of equality and
justice under law in their relations

with each other as well as with other
nations; and for the cultivation of
that respect for law that is so vital
to the democratic way of life.
These purposes hold special mean-

The Three Suitors is a first novel,
written by a young Welshman,
Richard Jones. It's the story of
an elderly woman, hampered by
approaching old age and by lack of
cash, who tries to publish her late
husband's diaries and papers. One
by one the three suitors, possible
buyers, come, and the complicated
family relationships, the dark secrets
of the diaries, all are revealed in a
story of conflict and comedy. This
is a very readable and enjoyable
Agatha Christie has a surprise for
her readers in her new book, Endless
Night. Very different from her usual
crime stories about Hercule Poirot
and Miss Marple, this one concerns
an impoverished young man, a rich
heiress, and a remarkable house with
a curse on it. All the subtlety and
skill of a master story-teller make
this an exciting mystery.
Presidential primaries are a factor
influencing the nomination of pres-
idential candidates. James W. Davis
has written Springboard to the White

idential primary election votes for
1912 to 1964, both Democratic and
Republican, are included. It's an
interesting book which may clarify

Phil Green

Closes Out

Long Career

Philip T. Green, chief of the In-
dustrial Training Staff, will retire
tomorrow after 31 years with the
Canal organization. He will be
honored at a farewell party being
given by the Canal Zone Central
Labor Union-Metal Trades Coun-
cil, 6 p.m., May 4, at the American
Legion Club in Fort Amador.
Green, a native of Kalamazoo,
Mich., has spent his entire Canal
career in the Apprentice Program.
He has headed the program since
1937. This highly successful pro-
gram, conducted under his direction,
has provided for the Canal a rich
source of well-trained men to fill
positions of electricians, machinists,
telephone installers, boilermakers,
sheet metal workers, carpenters,
plumbers, ship fitters, powerhouse
operators, and many other key trades.
He holds a bachelor of science in
electrical engineering from the Uni-
versity of Cincinnatti and has a mas-
ters degree in engineering. Green
was first employed in the Schools
Division as an instructor for appren-
tice-learners and many craftsmen,
craft-leaders and other key craft-
supervisory men now employed in
the Canal Zone craft groups studied
under him.
The CLU-MTC is compiling a
book of all the men who were grad-
uated from Green's apprentice pro-
gram. A snapshot, if possible, and a
short up-to-date history of the indi-
vidual has been requested. Forns
asking for this data have been failed
to those who have attended the
Apprentice School. The book will be
presented to Green at the retirement
Those who wish to be included in
the apprentice book and who have
not received forms may contact Jim
O'Donnel at 2-4566 or Ed Womble,
2-4487. Tickets for the party may
also be obtained from these men,
and from representatives in every
Canal activity employing craftsmen.


The last few chores are cleaned up by Philip T. Green, chief of the Industrial
Training Staff, before his retirement tomorrow. Green has been with the
Canal organization for 31 years, all of this time with the Apprentice Program.

Mrs. Della Noonan, who was retired this month from her position as Chi
of the Administrative Section of the Panama Canal Supply Division, gets
farewell kiss from her boss L. A. Ferguson, Director of the Supply ai
Community Service Bureau. An interested spectator is her husband Jose]
E. Noonan, General Manager of Norton, Lilly & Co. in Cristobal. M
Noonan completed 38 years of service with the Panama Canal, making h
senior in point of service in her division. She was the guest of honor at
retirement party given by her fellow workers at her office and several oth
parties during the week.

Canal Receptionist

Helps Panama's Poor

Mrs. CAndida Bernal Carteret, a
receptionist in the office of the Gen-
eral Manager of the Supply Division,
saw one of her dreams come true
when she presented a handcraft ex-
hibit in the recent Chorrera Fair
which won third prize in the com-
mercial division.
It all began in the Philippines
where she accompanied her husband,
Thurman W. Carteret, of the Air
Force, on a tour of duty. She could
not work there, but she learned the
native handcrafts with the thought
in mind of helping Panama's poor
when she returned. And this Mrs.
Carteret achieved this dry season,
devoting all her spare time to visiting
the capital city's poor sections and
teaching the residents all she knows
about handcrafts.

Law Day


In Zone

(Continued from p. 1)

United States are fighting in distant
lands to preserve freedom. At the
same time, Americans are working in
the United States to strengthen free-
dom and justice and to improve the
quality of life and opportunity for
all Americans.
S The 1968 Law Day theme-Only
a lawful society can build a better
society-reminds us that we must
place our faith in the orderly proc-
esses of law, the courts and our rep-
resentative form of Government if
ief the resources of the United States are
a to be marshaled for the achievement
nd of lasting social progress. The words
ph of the theme also stand for the con-
er cept that crime, violence, and dis-
a order are the enemies of freedom,
ler justice and a better society.
On Law Day 1968 it is appropriate
that we make an acknowledgment of
our duty as citizens and recognize
our responsibilities to uphold the law,
the agencies of law enforcement, and
the courts in the performance of their
obligations. It is also proper that-we
he teach young Americans the enduring
ng values of a society founded on a tra-
iol edition of responsible freedom secured
m- by the orderly processes of law.
t- Leber, Governor of the Canal Zone,
r- do hereby designate Wednesday,
er May 1, 1968, as LAW DAY U.S.A.
Is, throughout the Canal Zone, and call
ne upon the entire Canal Zone commu-
he nity to join with the schools, churches,
or the judiciary, members of the legal
profession, and law enforcement of-
go ficials in the proper observances of
ng the day.
'e- have hereunto set my hand and
s, caused the seal of the Canal Zone
to be affixed at Balboa Heights this
Eighth day of April, in the year
nineteen hundred and sixty-eight.

Gerald L. Neal, Senior Conductor, Panama Railroad, was accompanied by
his wife, Mrs. Marie H. Neal, right, principal of the Balboa Elementary
School, when he made his last round trip on the railroad in his official
capacity. Neal will retire April 29 after almost 35 years' U.S. Government
service. He began work with the Panama Railroad August 1933 as a yard
clerk in Cristobal. He was a learner-conductor under the Apprentice-Learner
program which began July 1, 1936. In 1939, he was promoted to conductor.
IIe resigned from Panama Railroad service in 1943 to enter the U.S. Navy
and served with the Navy until November 1945. He was rehired by the
Panama Railroad in 1946 and continued working for the Railroad until his
retirement. Mr. and Mrs. Neal plan to remain on the Isthmus for the present.

It would be unlawful to allow a

to operate a kennel.
Other pets such as goldfish, birds,
and monkeys, are not affected,
Governor Leber said.
Under new business, R. E. Hol-
land, second vice president of the
Coco Solo Civic Council, asked for
more information concerning the
temporary detour at Randolph Road
and said the Coco Solo Council
would like to know the determine
factor that governed the repair job.
He suggested more effective warning
lights or blinkers on the site of the
road work.
Richard L. Johnston, president of
the Gatun Civic Council, was con-
cerned with the rapidity with which
a blaze spread in a residence in
Gatun last summer and suggested in-
stallation of eyebolts and ropes in
quarters that have no fire escape.
He also asked if there is any
chance of a change in Panama Rail-
road schedules so that the train that
now leaves Panama at 10 p.m. would
be held until 11 or 11:30 p.m., at
least on weekends. The earlier depar-
ture time means that Atlantic side
residents are unable to travel by
train to see any of the plays, or even
a film on the Pacific side, he pointed
Johnston also reported that service
has improved at the Margarita Serv-
ice Center.
Governor Leber, at the opening
of the session, spoke briefly on his
recent trip to Washington, D.C., for
budget hearings.
"Everyone I talked with and went
before had high regard for the work
being done by the Panama Canal
and the Canal Zone Government,"
he said. "I encountered no criticism."
Dr. Arias said there's now only
about a 12-day backlog of pap

smears, thanks to the assistance of
the Canal Zone Cancer Committee.
Holland questioned the efficiency
of a "red card system" being used
for some quarters on the Atlantic
side. Under this system, a house-
holder desiring some type of main-
tenance work at his quarters places
a red card in his window and a fore-
man, touring the housing areas in a
truck, presumably checks on the
work to be done.
John Knick, second vice president,
Pacific Civic Council, spoke of the
advantages of the Boy Scout Camp
at Madden Lake as an overnight
family camping facility.
Governor Leber said improve-
ments need to be made at the camp,
principally in connection with the
water supply, prior to making the
camp's facilities available.
Announcement was made that the
Livability Program will be con-
tinued as long as there is a general
demand for the types of improve-
ments which have been made under
that program.

La prontitud del Canal de Panama
en manejar efectivamente los acci-

Durante las 2 filtimas semanas se
han celebrado conferencias con re-
presentantes de casi todas las unida-

la empresa del Canal. Se ha dado
especial enfasis al crecimiento del

en el tamafio de los barcos, y a los
inevitable aumentos en potencia de
las colisiones, encalladuras, incendios
y explosions.

Una de las interesantes historians

panamefo Emesto J. Castillero R. en
su libro Leyendas e Historias de Pa-

la Dama, Un Romance de Morgan
en PanamA La Vieja.
Nos dice que el 28 de enero de
1671 Morgan atac6 a la ciudad de

De todos estos prisioneros algunos

Gotas de Historia
Noviembre 23, 1537-Por decreto
real emitido en Valladolid se otor-
g6 el titulo de ciudad a Nombre
de Dios.

Un dia despues de haber quedado
el pueblo a voluntad de los pirates,
Morgan decidi6 visitar a todos los pri-
sioneros para elegir aquellos por los
que podria conseguir mas altos res-
eates. Todos los cautivos fueron en-
cerrados en el temple de La Merced,
que habia escapado del incendio y
servia comon cartel general de la pi-
rateria. Estaba Morgan en la tarea
de seleccionar a los personajes cuan-
do repar6 en una hermosa dama que
per su esplendorosa belleza hizo sen-
tirlo timido y confuso.
Morgan entabl6 un dialogo con ella
prcguntandole quien era, si estaba
casada, si era rica, d6nde so encon-
traba su esposo y d6nde estaba ella
al ser capturada. A lo que ella le res-
pondi( ser una espafiola nacida en
PanamA, estar casada, ser esposa de
un espailol que estaba en cl Peri,
ser rica hasta quc 6l cntri a la ciudad
y que ella se encontraba n ''Taboga,
cuando fue capturada.
Morgan fue solicito, carifioso, edu-
cado y obsequioso con la dama, po-
niendo en ello toda su astucia con el
fin de conseguir su amor. MAs todo
fue en vano, pues todos los halagos
de nada le valieron. Morgan mont6
en c6lera entonces, porque mientras

imas solicitaba los favores de la dama
menos mostraba ella un gesto de
flaqueza, ni ain ante las amenazas
de torment; por el contrario, con
altivez le contestaba a Morgan: "Mi
vida estA en vuestras manes, pero
antes de conseguir lo que pretend6is,
habr6is de matamne porque ningln
tomnento me harA caer voluntaria-
mente en vuestros brazos".
Morgan, ofendido en su orgullo, la
mand6 a encerrar en un calabozo,
despojindola de todo su ropaje y
demtAs prendas. Iban por cl camino
de Cruces de regreso hacia los bar-
cos pirates cuando la dama Ie revel6
el escondite de un tesoro de su pro-
piedad a un religioso para quc pagara
su rescate, pero este, traidoramente
utilize el tesoro cn rescatar a otras
personas. Al enterarse Morgan del
hecho, bizo poner en libertad a la
virtuosa (dama y en su lugar enccrr6
al religioso para que pagara su
Aios despucs, en un banquet ante
la Reina de Inglaterra, una de las
damas prcgunt6 a Morgan si alguna
vez habia sido derrotado. "Si", dijo
Morgan con la mirada perdida en el
espacio, "una vez, en Panam . .
por una hermosa dama".

El Club Social 19 del Hospital

a cabo el 4 de mayo una "Noche en

de la organizaci6n han cxpresado su
gratitude a todos aquellos que pensa-
ron participar en el paseo "Penonomc
A Co-Go", el 24 de marzo, pero que
no se pudo efectuar.

John Keats, en uno de los versos
mAs inspirados de la lirica inglesa
compete el incredible error de atribuir
a Cort6s el descubrimiento del Paci-
"O como el valeroso Cortes
cuando con ojos de aguila
Fij6 su vista en el Pacifico-
y todos sus hombres
Se miraron unos a otros con
tremendo asombro-
Silenciosos, en lo alto de un
pico en Darien".
Se ha dicho con verdad y humo-
rismo que Balboa es mAs conocido
en las aulas universitarias de los pue-
blos ingleses por este error de Keats,
que por su inmortal descubrimiento
del Mar del Sur.

Exhibicion de la Sra. C. B. Carteret

Obtiene Premio en La Chorrera

Sra. CAndida B. Carteret
La Sra. Candida Bernal Carteret,
recepcionista en la oficina del Gerente
General de la Divisi6n de Abastos,
vio coronado uno de sus ideales al
presentar en la Feria de La Chorrera
una exhibici6n de manualidades y
obtener el Tercer Premio Comercial.
Todo comenz6 en las Filipinas
cuando tuvo que acompafiar a su es-
poso, Thurman W. Carteret, de la
Fuerza A6rea, quien fue asignado a
esa Area. Alli no pudo trabajar pero
aprovech6 su tiempo en aprender
manualidades con el fin de poder
ayudar a la gente humilde a su re-
greso a PanamA. Y esta idea ha cris-
talizado este verano cuando la Sra.
Carteret usa todo su tiempo libre y
visit los barrios humildes de Panama
con el objeto de ensefiar a sus habi-
tantes todo lo que sabe de manuali-
dades e inculcarles el sentido del
trabajo y del ahorro.
Los materials los proporcionan
ella y su esposo y les hace ver a los
muchachos, de escuela secundaria en
su mayoria, que alrededor nuestro
hay muchas cosas que parecen in-
significantes, come platillos, botellas
vacias, Arboles, langostas, cangrejos,
zapatos usados, etc., pero que sirven
para hacer bonitos adornos para sus
casas. Mas la ensefianza no llega
hasta aqui. Toda esta gente necesita
apoyo para seguir adelante y que sus
trabajos sean valorados en toda su
extension. Por eso la VIII Feria de
La Chorrera fue una magnifica opor-

tunidad para que el public viera de
cerca el halagador camnpo que se abre
a la gente humilde.
El plan de la Sra. Carteret es ex-
tenso y ya tiene en mente la adquisi-
ci6n de un local, que se Ilamaria
Modas y Regales "Gysell Ann", para
vender lo producido por los j6venes
y nifios humildes de PanamiA.
Entre los bonitos articulos se en-
cuentran floreros, canastas, muniecas,
bohios, etc. En la Feria de La Cho-
rrera estuvo incluso en exposici6n el
