Vol. VI, No. 46 vore Than u i eari s ofu erv

Gov. Leber Bids Farewell

To 72 Retiring Employees

People are the key to any organi-
zation-and the Panama Canal hates
to see its trained personnel go, Gov.
W. P. Leber told a group of 40 or
more of the 72 employees who
retired from Canal service at the
end of April.
In a ceremony Monday afternoon
in the Board Room of the Administra-
tion Building at Balboa Heights,
Governor Leber thanked the veteran
employees for their years of service
and told them that it was due to them
and other devoted employees of their
type that the Panama Canal was able
to operate at top efficiency at a time
when the number and size of ships
were increasing every day.
Remarking that nearly every ele-
ment of the Canal organization was
represented, the Governor said he
noticed that several retiring em-
ployees were teachers from the Divi-
sion of Schools. But he added, nearly
every employee has been a teacher
at one time or another, helping
younger people to learn their jobs
and helping other employees to take
their places.
Wherever you go after retirement,
he said, you will find that the Panama
Canal has a reputation as a fine orga-
nization and is doing a good job-
not only for the United States but for
the world. This should be a source of
satisfaction to all of-you for you haye
been responsible for this reputation.
Governor Leber then handed out
the retirement certificates, congra-
tulated each employee, who also re-
ceived the congratulation of the
director of the bureau in which he

Milton Canham, who has just retired as electrical engineer in the Engineering
Division, built this trailer in which he and his family will live on their way
to the United States. The trailer is equipped with all modern comforts,
including radio and television. Waving from the trailer door is Mrs. Hermine
Canham. In the family car are Canham and daughter Mabel, who will help
with the driving.

Trailer, Goes North

Engineer Milton W. Canham is
the type of man who builds things
to his taste when he doesn't find
something that suits him.
So he himself built the trailer

Canham has just retired as Elec-
trical Engineer in the Panama Canal
Engineering Division.
Motoring to the United States is
an old story for the Canham family.
This will be their third trip by land
from the Isthmus to the States.
The family made its first trip in
1962 in a new Ford Thames. That
was a real experience, Canham re-
calls, because many bridges were
missing along the way and the rivers
had to be forded. He was helped on
the wheel by his son, Milton, Jr. Also
along were his wife, Hermine, who
was born in Cristobal, and their
youngest daughter, Mabel. The Can-
hams' eldest daughter, Cora, is
married and is living in El Paso, Tex.
It took the Canhams 3 weeks that
time to get to Kentucky, where Cora
then resided. They later toured the
United States before returning to
Their second trip by car to the
States was in 1966. This time the
family rode in a Rambler station
wagon. On that trip were Mrs. Can-
ham, daughter Mabel, Susan En-
gelke, daughter of Canal Zone Police
Lt. Robert Engelke, and the Can-
hams' canine pet, Princess. This sec-
ond adventure extended into Europe.
The Canhams drove to New York,
embarked aboard the SS France and
disembarked in Le Havre, France.
There they took to the road again

and covered 18,000 miles, driving as
far as Yugoslavia.

New Traffic Mark

Is Set for April

With a daily average of 42.6 ocean-
going ships, April traffic through the
Panama Canal hit a new monthly
level. During the 30-day period there
were a total of 1,277 vessels of 300
Panama Canal net tons or more.
This high traffic average was
reached despite the fact that the
Canal operation was curtailed by
locks overhaul in process at Gatun
Locks for most of the month and by
dredging operations necessary in
Gaillard Cut due to the Canal channel
widening project.
The total number of ships put
through the Canal in April was the
highest in history for a 30-day period
and although there were no daily
records, there were 4 days with more
than 50 oceangoing ships transiting
in a 24-hour period.
At the end of the month, the Ma-
rine Traffic Control reported that the
number of ships ready and awaiting
transit following the Gatun overhaul
and the delay caused by dredging in
the Cut, had been reduced to 16,
traffic was expected to be current by

Prisoners Receive

School Certificates

There were no caps and gowns.
The seven graduates wore plain
white uniforms. With a stenciled
number over thte left breast pocket.
But the pride of achievement was
there just the same. The inmates of
the Canal Zone Penitentiary were
gathered to receive their certificates
after completing the sixth grade level
in a study course administered by the
Schools Division.
There was even a valedictorian.
The articulate young man, serving
time for burglary, thanked police and
school division officials for affording
him and his fellow inmates an oppor-
tunity for self-improvement, to better
equip them for the day when they
rejoin society. For some, it will be
only a few months, for others, a little
longer. One member of the class is
a lifer.
Instituted in 1963, the educational
program follows the same curriculum
as the Canal Zone Latin American
schools. Illiterate inmates are urged
to attend classes until they reach the
sixth grade level.
Ellis L. Fawcett, supervisor of in-
struction, Latin American Schools,
has been the supervisor of the pro-
gran since its inception. Classes are
taught in Spanish by George Hamil-
ton, Wilfredo Layne, and Javier
Diaz. A total of 18 fourth-grade cer-
tificates and 13 sixth-grade certifi-
cates have been awarded since the
school was established.
Presentation of certificates at last
week's commencement exercises was
made by Dr. Charles L. Latimer,
deputy superintendent of schools, and

one of the graduates. The chorus

Robert Hilton Hughes, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Hilton F. Hughes of La
Boca and a member of the graduating
class of Balboa High School, has been
accepted for appointment to the U.S.

Church and has taken part in the
annual cayuco race. He is a member
of the High School Varsity football

the Lettermen's Club.

"Cheers, Dears," says Martha as she tries to. get the party rolling. Martha
is acted by Donald Pierpoint in the Cristobal Little Theatre play "Who's
Afraid of Virginia Woolf" opening tonight at 8 p.m. in the France Field
Theatre for a 3-night run. Others in the picture are Douglas Maduro as
George; Tom Sherman as Nick; and Lydia Santiago as Honey.

Steps to Safety

In the Kitchen

According to information supplied
by the National Safety Council, more
accidents occur in the kitchen than
in any other room of the house. On
the bright side no room offers more
opportunity to do something about
guarding family safety.
Thirteen is the homemakers lucky
number; there are 13 ways that every
homemaker can use to guard the
kitchen safety of her family and
Pots and Pans. Because pot handles
sticking out from the stove are easily
knocked over, be sure tc- keep pot
handles turned inward. Keep pot
holders handy, too: a kitchen towel
will protect your hand from heat, but
a towel corner may touch the flame
or element. If a grease fire starts in
a pan, smother it with a metal cover
or pour generous amounts of salt or
baking soda over the fire.
Electrical Equipment. Frayed cords
and worn plugs are a major cause of
kitchen fires, so check yours periodi-
cally. Have safety guards installed on
unused outlets. Make sure you don't
overload your circuits, for electrical
fires are among the hardest to put
out. (If the lights dim when you turn
on an appliance, your circuits are
probably overloaded.)
The Oven. Modern gas and elec-
tric ovens light without matches, but
if your oven does require a match,

Three Gorgas Hospital physicians were recently pro-
moted from major to the grade of lieutenant colonel,
U.S. Army, in ceremonies held at the hospital. The new
lieutenant colonels are shown with Col. H. Haskell
Ziperman, left, Health Director, and Col. L. M. Jackson,

right, Director of Gorgas Hospital. Left to right are:
Colonel Ziperman; Lt. Col. E. R. Olson, ophthalmologist;
Lt. Col. K. R. Holloman, Chief, Laboratory Service;
Lt. Col. B. T. Po., Chief, Anesthesiology Service; and
Colonel Jackson.

don't turn on the gas until the flame is
there. Make sure the room is well
Matches. Use safety matches, and
store them out of children's reach.
Knives. Store sharp knives in a
high wall rack, beyond the reach of
children. Wash and dry them one by
one, turning the sharp edge away
from your hand, lest you get a
pointed reminder of the mistake.
When cutting, always cut away from
you. For peeling, buy an inexpensive
little gadget -rather than using a
sharp knife.
Dishes. Dinnerware of melamine
is the safest kind. Being virtually
unbreakable, it presents almost no
hazard of sharp-edged broken pieces
in the dishpan or on the floor. It will
withstand the hottest dishwasher
water without damage (caution: other
types of plastics may not). And since
it won't crack, chip or craze (from
tiny cracks in the glaze) there's no
possibility of unsanitary soap or food
particles collecting in it.
Cleaning Fluids. Did you know
that even non-flammable cleaning
fluids are risky? They often give off
poisonous fumes. No matter which
type of fluid you use, be sure the
room is well ventilated. When using
acids or caustics wear rubber gloves,
a protective apron, and goggles if
splashing is possible.
Cupboard Doors. Close them im-
mediately after use. An open cup-
board door is too often the doorway
to a lump on the head.
Towels. Hang them away from the
range to avoid fire. Use them as little
as possible; the most sanitary way to
dry dishes is to let the water
Fire Extinguisher. Keep a fire ex-
tinguisher far enough from the range
so that you'll never have to brave
flames to reach it. Be sure the ex-
tinguisher is the type that puts out
fat fires as well as the ordinary kind.
Your best bet for the kitchen is a port-
able dry chemical fire extinguisher.
Spillage. When water, food, or
grease spills onto the floor, wipe it
up immediately instead of "in a mo-
ment." You probably won't slip on it,
knowing it's there, but someone else
who enters the kitchen may not see it.
Nails and Hooks. When putting
these up, place them where passerby
can't be caught on them. If possible,
hang hooks high enough to avoid
children; your waist level may he
their eye level.
Stools. It lasts a lifetime, cost little

Nearly 100 years of U.S. Government service is represented by these three
employees who retired recently from the Engineering and Construction
Bureau. They are, left to right: Harry E. Pearl, Chief of the Surveys Branch
with 34 years; Charles Humber, General Engineering Estimator with 35
years; and Milton W. Canham, Electrical Engineering Technician, with
25 years. They are examining checks for $50 each given by fellow employees
at a joint retirement party in the Administration Building.

L. W. Chambers retiring Safety Representative of the Marine Bureau, gets
a black palm walking stick from R. J. Danielson, Superintendent of Atlantic
Locks during a farewell luncheon at the Tivoli Guest House. Chambers,
who has service with the Canal dating back to 1942, also received a superior
service award with a check for $150 from his boss Capt. D. A. Dertien, USN,
Marine Director; and a ship's clock from his fellow workers in the Marine
Bureau. From left to right are Truman H. Hoenke, Chief of the Locks Divi-
sion; Danielson, Chambers, Captain Dertien; Capt. A. L. Gallin, USN, Chief
of the Navigation Division; Walter A. Dryja, Assistant Marine Director;

travelled to the Old World via New
York. They bought a Hillman in
England, shipped it to Dunkirk,
France, and toured the continent,

Canham estimates that this third
jaunt to the United States-which
incidentally is starting on his birth-
day-will take 6 weeks. This time
there won't be any rivers to ford
and the family will be driving in
real comfort.
The trailer house built by Can-
ham to his taste has all the comforts
of a de luxe home. He figures it cost
him $7.000.
Built for six, the trailer is equip-
ped with a double bunk, a collap-
sible dining table with seats that turn
into a bed for three, air conditioning,
bathroom, gas range, electric re-
frigerator, electrical outlets, closets,
cabinets, a 75-gallon water tank for
washing, a 20-gallon tank of drink-
ing water, curtains, skylights-every-
Power for the 23-foot trailer is
provided by two batteries which are
charged by a special generator
hooked to the 1967 Dodge Monaco

The aluminum used for the body
of the trailer was purchased at Hoja-
lateria PanamA, S.A. The equipment
and parts were ordered from the
The Canhams will spend several
days in Costa Rica, where there are
trailer parks. In Nicaragua and El
Salvador they will make arrange-

ments to spend the night parked next
to a service station.
"I never spend the night parked
on the shoulders of the highway,"
Canham says.
There are trailer parks also in
Guatemala and Mexico.
Incidentally, Canham is carrying
insurance coverage for the portion
of the trip through Central America
and a separate policy for Mexico and
the United States.
Relieving him at the wheel this
time will be daughter Mabel, who
was born in Ancon and enrolled in
the Canal Zone College after grad-
uation last year from Balboa High
School. His other children, Mil-
ton, Jr., at present stationed at Jack-
sonville AFB, Ark., and Cora, also
are graduates of Balboa High School.
The Canhams' destination is El
Paso, Tex., where Cora and eight of
their grandchildren reside. They will
drive there by way of Jacksonville,
Chicago, Ill., and Albuquerque,
N. Mex., where Canham's brother,
John, resides.
Canham came to Panama in 1929
after graduation from the Haugan
Electrical School in Chicago. From
1929 until 1950 he was electrical
superintendent at the air depots in
France Field, Curundu, and Fort
Kobbe. Retired by the Army in 1950,
he joined the Canal organization.
He lived for 14 years in Arraijan,
R. of P., where he owned a house.
He built a radio broadcasting station
in Colon which he operated for
several years.
The Canhams aren't saying good-
bye to the Isthnnus. They want to
return and settle here where they
have many friends.

YI" to Sponsor

4th Power Lift
The Armed Services YMCA of
Balboa is sponsoring its fourth annual
"Power Lift" weight lifting tourna-
ment May 10.
This tournament is open to mem-
bers of the U.S. Armed Services and
the regular Balboa YMCA lifters. The
tournament will consist of first and
second prizes for the "Bench Press,"
the "Squat Lift," and the "Dead
Lift." Also there will be a trophy for
the best overall champion of the
meet. The points and scoring will be
determined with the use of the
"Bob Hoffman formula" which will
equalize the weight difference of the
different lifters according to their
weights, and the weights they lift.
The contest will be held in the
Armed Services YMCA Gym in Bal-
boa 7 p.m., with the weigh-ins to
start at 4 p.m.
All of those interested may pick
up entry blanks at the "Y" front desks
and the public is urged to attend.
There is no admission charge.

Due to circumstances beyond their
control, members of Social "19" of
Gorgas Hospital announce the can-
cellation of Las Vegas Nite which
had been scheduled for May 4 at the
Jardin Las Vegas in Chilibre.

DID YOU KNOW . American
males are probably reducing their
life expectancy by as much as 5
years through lack of regular exer-
cise, estimates a Harvard University
nutritionist. The 68.5-year life ex-
pectancy of American males ranks
them 37th among men surveyed inl
other civilized countries. The reason
given for the longer life expectancy
of European males was their more
exercise-oriented habits. (From The
Gorgas Hospital Bulletin.)

mary consideration involved in Girl

El Canal Impone

Una Nueva Marca

Con un trafico promedio diario de
42.6 naves de alto bordo durante
abril, el Canal de PanamA implant
una nueva marca mensual.
Durante el period de 30 dias,
transitaron la via interoceAnica 1.277
barcos de 300 o mas toneladas netas
del Canal de PanamA.
Este alto promedio de transitos se
obtuvo a pesar del hecho de que la
operaci6n del Canal fue obstaculi-
zada por el reacondicionamiento de
las Esclusas de Catun, que se efec-
tu6 durante la mayor part del mes,
y por las operaciones de dragado que
fue necesario hacer en el Corte Cail-
lard, en relaci6n con el proyecto de
ampliaci6n del Corte.
El n6imero total de naves que
transitaron el Canal durante el mes
de abril fue el mAs alto de la historic
del Canal, durante cualquier period
de 30 dias, y a pesar de que no se
impuso ningun record de 1 dia, hubo
4 dias en que transitaron el Canal
mis de 50 buques de alto bordo en
un period de 24 horas.
Al final del mes, el Control de Tri-
fico Maritino inform que el nimero
de naves que esperaban para transi-
tar, luego del reacondicionamiento de
Catuin y la demora causada por el
dragado en el Corte, habia sido redu-
cido a 16. Se esperaba que el trifico
se normalizara para el dia viernes.

Canham se Jubila y

Se Lleva su "Casa"


El Ingeniero Milton W. Canham
es un hombre que cuando no encuen-
tra algo de su gusto lo construye
a su gusto.
Canham, quien sc jubila como in-
geniero electric de la Divisi6n de
Ingenieria del Canal de Panami, co-
menzart mariana junto con su familiar
una aventura terrestre mis hacia los
Estados Unidos en su casa remolque
construida por l1 a su gusto. Verda-
deramente se necesita un gran espi-
ritu para viajar tanto, cualidad que
le sobra a Canham, que completari
con este su tercer viaje terrestre a
los Estados Unidos.
Primer Viaje por Tierra a EE. UU.
Su primer viaje lo hizo en 1962
en un Ford Thames de ese afio. Esta
fue una gran experiencia, dice, por-
que en ese tiempo faltaban muchos
puentes y tuvo que cruzar muchos
rios. Sin embargo tuvo la ayuda en
el tim6n de su hijo Milton, Jr., y la
compafifa de su esposa Hermine,
nacida en Crist6bal, y de su hija mis
pequefia Mabel. Su hija mayor, Cora,
estA casada y vive en El Paso, Texas.
Su primer viaje le tom6 3 semanas
hasta Ilegar a Kentucky, donde resi-
dia en ese entonces su hija mayor.
De alli continue su viaje alrededor
de los Estados Unidos y regres6 a
Segundo Viaje por Tierra a EE. UU.
En 1966 complete su segundo
viaje terrestre a los Estados Unidos.
Esta vez fue en una camioneta Ram-
bler y tuvo la compaflia de su esposa,
de su hija Mabel, de Susan Engelke,
hija del Teniente Robert Engelke, de
la Policia de Balboa, y de su adora-
da compafiera canina llamada Prin-
cess. Esta segunda aventura terrestre
se extendi6 hasta Europa. Llegados
a Nueva York, se embarcaron en el
France y desembarparon en el Puer-
to de El Havre, Francia. Hicieron
entonces 18.000 millas de recorrido
en autom6vil por todo Europa, inclu-
yendo hasta Yugoeslavia.
Esta, fue sin embargo su segunda
experiencia por Europa. En 1958
habia viajado a Europa, via Nueva
York, junto con su esposa, su hijo
Milton y su hija Mabel. Llegaron a
Inglaterra donde compraron un Hill-
man que embarcaron para Dunquer-
que, Francia, e hicieron un recorrido
por Europa y visitaron a Cora
Becker, su hija mayor, en Alemania,
cuyo esposo estaba acantonado alli.

Tercer Viaje par Tierra a EE. UU.
Su tercer viaje terrestre a los Es-
tados Unidos que inicia mariana dia
de su cumpleafios, segfn sus calculos
le tomarnl 6 semanas. No tendrAl en
esta oportunidad que cruzar rios y
lo pasarA mis c6modo. Su casa re-
molque tirada por un Dodge M6naco
1967 tiene todas las comodidades de
una casa de lujo. Calcula su cost en
unos $7.000. Tiene una capacidad
para seis personas, e incluye un ca-
marote; la mesa del comedor es ple-
gable y los asientos pueden conver-
tirse en cama para tres personas en
la noche; el remolque tiene aire acon-
dicionado, baino, estufa de gas, refri-
geradora electrica, various toma co-
rriente, armarios, gabinetes, un tan-
que de 75 galones de agua que pro-
porciona el agua para el bafio y el
lavamanos, un tanque de 20 galones
de agua potable, cortinas, tragaluces,
etc. El remolque tiene una longitud
de 23 pies. La electricidad la obtiene
por medio de dos baterias y un gene-
rador que combine con el motor de
su auto.
Us6 Materiales Locales
Cabe anotar que el aluminio que
us6 Canham en la construcci6n de
este remolque lo compr6 en la Hoja-
lateria PanamA, S.A. El equipo y
piezas restantes lo obtuvo de los
Estados Unidos.
Todo lo Tiene Planeado
Este viaje lo aprovechara para
pasar varies dias en Costa Rica, donde
hay un lugar especial para estacionar
remolques; en Nicaragua, donde se-
g6n ha sabido no existed lugar es-
pecial para estacionar remolques no
dudarl en pedir permiso para pasar
la noche al lado de una estaci6n de
gasoline. Lo mismo harA en El Sal-
vador. "Jamis paso la noche estacio-
nado en los hombros de la carretera",
explica Canham.

Trece Utiles Consejos

Para las Amas de Casa

Seg6n informaci6n suministrada
por el Consejo Nacional de Seguri-
dad, en la cocina ocurren mis acci-
dentes que en cualquier otro cuarto
de la casa. Pero si lo vemos en sentido
optimista no existed ningun cuarto
que ofrezea mis oportunidades de
hacer algo para salvaguardar la
seguridad de la familiar que la cocina.
Trece es el nmmero de suerte de
las amas de casa; existen 13 medios
que el ama de casa puede usar en la
cocina para mantener la seguridad de
su familiar y la suya propia.
Ollas y Sartenes. Debido a que fi-
cilmente podriamos golpear las aga-
rraderas de una olla, que sobresalen
de la estufa, est6 siempre segura de
colocarlas hacia dentro. Tenga tam-
bi6n siempre a mane portaollas; una
toalla de cocina protegerA sus manes
del calor, pero una punta de la toalla
puede tocar la flama. Si se prende la
sartin, apAguela con una tapadera de
metal o chele cantidades moderadas
de sal o bicarbonato de soda.
Equipo Elctrico. Cordones pela-
dos y enchufes rotos son la causa
principal de los incendios en las coci-
nas; por eso, reviselos peri6dicamen-
te. Coloque cajas de seguridad a los
tomacorrientes de poco uso. Esti se-
gura de que no sobrecarga sus cir-
cuitos, porque los incendios el6ctri-
cos son los mIs dificiles de apagar.
(Si las luces se debilitan cuando se
prende un aparato, eso significa que
sus circuitos estan probablemente
El Homo. Los hornos modernos de
gas y electricidad se prenden sin f6s-
foros, pero si su hprno require un
f6sforo, no abra el gas hasta que la
flama este alli. Esti segura de que el
cuarto est6 bien ventilado.
F6sforos. Use f6sforos de seguri-
dad, y guirdelos fuera del alcance
de los nifios.
Cuchillos. Guarde los cuchillos afi-
lados en un estate bien alto fuera
del alcance de los nifios. Livelos y
sdquelos uno por uno, desviando
siempre de su mano el lade afilado
para que no tenga un aviso puntiagu-
do de. su error. Al cortar, hAgalo
hacia afuera. Para pelar, compare un
dispositivo barato antes que usar un
cuchillo afilado.
Plates. Las vajillas de melamina
son las mis seguras. Siendo virtual-
mente irrompibles, no presentan casi
ningun peligro de piezas rotas con
puntas afiladas en el fregador o en el
piso. Resiste el agua mis calicnte de
un lavaplatos (cuidado: otras classes
de plisticos tal vez no). Y ya que
no se quiebra, astilla o estria (peque-
fias quebraduras en la superficie) no
hay posibilidades de que recoja
particular de alimentos o de jab6n.
Fluidos Limpiadores. 8Sabia usted
que hasta los fluids limpiadores in-
flamables ofrecen riesgos? A menudo
despiden vapores venenosos. No im-
porta la clase de fluido que use, cer-
ci6rese de que el cuarto estA bien
ventilado. Al usar icidos o ciusticos
utilice guantes de caucho, un delantal
protector, y anteojos para el caso de
Puertas de Alacena. Cidrrelas in-
mediatamente despui s de usar la ala-
cena. Una puerta abierta en Ia alace-
na es a menudo el camino para un
chich6n en la cabeza.
Toallas. Cuelguelas fuera de su
alcance para evitar incendios. Uselas


";Rdpido! consigueme un corcho, unos
trapos, un hmpiador. .. icualquier

lo menos possible; la manera mis sani-
taria de secar plates es dejar que el
agua se evapore.
Extintor de Incendios. Mantenga
un extintor de incendio bastante lejos
de la cocina, de manera que nunca
tenga que enfrentarse a las llamas
para alcanzarlo. Aseg6irese de que el
extintor es de la clase que apaga in-
cendios de grasas lo mismo que in-
cendios ordinarios. Lo mejor para su
cocina es un extintor de incendios
portatil de products quinicos secos.
Derramamientos. Cuando agua,
alimentos o grasa caen al suelo, lim-
pielos inmediatamente, y no lo deje
para mis tarde. Usted probablemen-
te no resbalarA sobre ellos, porque
lo sabe, pero otra persona que entire
a la cocina podr. no saberlo.
Clavos y Ganchos. Al ponerlos, hA-
galo de manera que nadie que pase
per alli, pueda engancharse. Si pue-
de, coloque los ganchos lo mis alto
possible para evitar que los nifios los
toquen; la cintura suya puede estar
a la altura del ojo de sus niios.
Banquillos. Duran una eternidad y
cuestan poco. Un banquillo puede
salvarla de una caida estrepitosa. Al
subir evite ese estir6n extra. Mueva
el banquillo de nuevo. De esa manera,
su subida no le costart un dolor en
el cuello o en cualquier otra part
del cuerpo.
