Civic Councils Told

Of Tight '69 Budget

According to word received from
Washington, all budgets for fiscal
year 1969 will be tight. However, it
is not known as yet what will be
approved in the Panama Canal's fiscal
year 1969 program, which starts in
July, Cov. W. P. Leber told the
U.S. Civic Council executive session
at the May meeting.
Governor Leber said the Panama
Canal organization has been getting
ready, the past few weeks, for the
annual visit of the Budget and
Finance Committee of the Panama
Canal's Board of Directors, who will
be coming to the Canal Zone to go
over the budget for fiscal year 1970.
By fall, he said, the Canal authori-
ties will have definite clear instruc-
tions on how much money to expect
in the budgets for fiscal years 1969
and 1970. The situation in the United
States has everyone in the Govern-
ment thoroughly occupied and the
Canal Zone, though thousands of
miles from Washington, has to tighten
its belt when the United States does,
he pointed out.
At the executive session of April 15,
copies of tentative specifications for
a leash law were distributed to each
Council for discussion within the
separate communities.
In a general discussion, John
Knick, first vice president, Pacific
Civic Council, brought out the fact
that apparently dogs have the prob-
lems instead of people. He and Dr.
Teodoro Arias of the Ancon-Balboa
Heights, Pacific Civic Council, em-
phasized that people who had hunt-
ing dogs usually had more than two
and that hunters want to protect
their dogs. Instances of dogs being
provoked were reported, together
with cases of penned-in dogs set free
during their owners' absences from
Mrs. Darleen Ashby, president of
the Pacific Civic Council, suggested
changing the name from "leash law"
to "pet control."
Governor Leber suggested a sum-
marization of all the points on the
subject, as gathered at the commu-
nity discussions, and then a referen-
dum vote.
Kenneth Fugleberg, treasurer of
the Gatun Civic Council, on the sub-
ject of rescheduling Panama Rail-
road train departure, pointed out
that he is not referring to a special
train. The request, he emphasized,
is that the 10 p.m. train leave /2 hour
later, at least on weekends.
Before taking up new business at
this meeting, Governor Leber sug-
gested discontinuance, as in previous
years, of Civic Council executive ses-
sions during the summer months
because many employees are on
leave. The next executive session will
be held in September, with special
meetings to be called should any
matters of importance arise that
require discussion.
The executive committee for
Youth-Family-Community Relations
is to hold a briefing on June 20 at
1:30 p.m. in the board room of the
Administration Building. Officers of
the Civic Councils and leaders of
other organizations in the civilian and
military communities of the Canal
Zone will be invited, said Governor
Leber. Since January. he said, this
committee has taken up many of the
problems concerning youths such as
reading material at the Panama Canal
Service Centers, films, health educa-

tion, drug and alcohol abuse, and
professional counseling services.
New business to come before the
executive sessions included a request
for better equipped retail sections at
the Canal Zone gas stations; the
building of garbage container walls
in U.S. communities, similar to those
in Canal Zone Latin American com-
munities; charge accounts available
once more in the Panama Canal
Retail stores; control of sandflies and
mosquitoes in the Diablo swamp
area, and a night drop box for books
at the Canal Zone Library.
The problem of drugs and teen-
agers was the subject of an animated
discussion. Dr. Arias pointed out that
LSD has no smell and no taste and
may be easily slipped into a cup of
tea or coffee. The drug comes in
powder or liquid form. The powder
is light blue, said Dr. Arias, while the
liquid is colorless.
Governor Leber observed that the
matter is of grave concern and is
being taken up by the Youth-Family-
Community Relations committee. He
reported that a film on LSD is being

15 Awarded

Checks for

and checks totaling $520 were pre-
sented to 15 Panama Canal employees
this week at ceremonies on both
sides of the Isthmus.
Gov. W. P. Leber presented the
awards to Pacific side employees and
Capt. Axton T. Jones, Transporta-
tion and Terminals Director, repre-
senting the Governor, gave them to
Atlantic siders. The suggestions rep-
resented estimated total tangible
benefits of $5,000 to the Panama
Canal organization.

Employees of the U.S. Govern-
ment are required to maintain cer-
tain standards of conduct prescribed
by Executive Order 11222 issued
May 8, 1965. Regulations governing
the conduct of employees of the
Canal Zone Government-Panama
Canal Company were issued pur-
suant to Executive Order 11222 on
March 31, 1966. These regulations
were entitled, "Employee Responsi-
bilities and Conduct" and were dis-
tributed to all employees in booklet
form. The regulations require that
employees be reminded of these
regulations every year.
The regulations prescribe standards
of employee conduct and responsi-
bility and require that certain em-
ployees submit statements concerning
employment and financial interest.
The regulations also set forth actions
which are prohibited for employees
of the Government-Company. These
restrictions prohibit an employee
from any action which might result
or appear to result in using public
office for private gain; giving any
person preferential treatment; in]-

It is impossible to pour the wisdom
of the old into the energy of the
young. But we must keep trying.

The greatest value of life depends
on what is left after death.

These regulations require some
management officials to submit state-
cents of employment and financial
interests to ensure that employees
:lo not become involved in a conflict
:of interest situation. During the past
year, minor changes in the regula-
tions were made. One of the changes
Seduced the number of employees
required to submit statements of em-
ploynent and financial irlterest. The
regulations were also changed to
limit the filing requirement to once
a year, whereas in the past, em-
ployees were required to submit
iuch statements as many as four
times a year. There are now only 44
employees in the C(overnment-Com-
pany organization required to sub-
miit such statements. Each employee
required to submit such a statement
receives appropriate forms and spe-
cific instructions on how to meet the
filing requirements from the Per-
sonnel Director.
Another rIecet clhangec in the reg-
ulations amended the provision re-
garding the giving of gifts. Tllis
provision Ihas now been relaxed to
permit the giving of gifts of a

Memorial Day Address

Honors Fallen Heroes

Cordon M. Frick, deputy per-
sonnel director (operations) of the
Personnel Bureau, was keynote
speaker at the Pacific side Memorial
Day ceremony May 30, held in Fort
Clayton Auditorium due to inclement
Frick began his eulogy of fallen
American veterans with an excerpt
from John Donne's poem on man's
involvement with the death of others,
and showed how it is still pertinent
"Those we honor today were in-
volved in mankind," Frick said.
"They were committed to its preser-
vation, to its freedom, its dignity . .
They knew that when freedom dies
in one place, it is diminished through-
out the world. That when there is a
trampling on human dignity in one
spot, human dignity suffers every-
where. They saw it happen in Poland,
Latvia, and in Nazi Germany. They
saw the results in Russia, North
Korea, and Cuba. They have seen it
in Vietnam."
Frick made special mention of
youth in his speech, since war is
essentially a young man's business.
"As the soldier is young," he said,
"so he fights for the young. He fights
for their future . that their lives
may be better than his." He gives
the ultimate sacrifice-his life-Frick
But honor can be a shallow cup
for the dead, Frick warned, if
Memorial Day is no more than nicely
turned phrases and strewing flowers
on graves of fallen countrymen. "If
we forget their involvement in man-
kind, if we refuse to take up their

Zone Blood Banks

Serve Many Needs

The banking of blood was begun
on the Isthmus of Panama at Gorgas
Hospital in 1954 and the next year
the blood bank on the Atlantic side
of the Isthmus was opened at Coco
Solo Hospital.
Since then, these two units have
between them collected approximate-
ly 27,000 units of blood of which
21,000 units have been used either
as whole blood or packed red cells.
Whenever needed, blood from one
bank has been furnished to the other
in order to assure complete avail-
ability of all blood types in each
bank at all times.
Because there is always a need
for converting a certain number of
units of blood to its various deriva-
tives, this was done by the Blood
Bank at Corgas Hospital. Some
of these derivatives include fresh
plasma, aged plasma, and washed
red blood cells. Where blood was
not used either for transfusion pur-
poses or as packed red blood cells
or as derivatives of blood, it became
outdated. This outdated blood is used
in the laboratory for making media
in bacteriology.
More than 99 percent of the blood
donated and its derivatives have been
employed in the Canal Zone at Gor-
gas and Coco Solo Hospitals. When-
ever necessary, units of blood and
some blood derivatives have been

sent on air evacuation flights to
various South and Central American
countries as well as by helicopter to
ships at sea.
Although the Republic of Panama
has its own blood banking facilities,
they occasionally run short of a par-
ticular type. When this occurs, and
upon request of an authorized
physician, blood from Canal Zone
banks is provided.

Tres Poblaciones Chiricanas

Que Tienen un Enorme Futuro

Hay tres pueblos en cl oriented chi-
ricano que constituyen una gran re-
serva agricola y ganadera para today
la Repliblica y que son bafiados por
el mismo rio.
Esta trilogia de pueblos esti cons-
tituida por San F6lix, Remedios y Las
Lajas, todos baniados por las cauda-
losas aguas del Rio San F6lix.
Quizfis cl mis important de los
tres es Remedios, gran centro comer-
cial y ganadero, desde los dias de
Colombia. Remedios fue ademais du-
rante much tiempo base de la firm
de los Hermanos Piza, financieros y
fundadores de la industrial ganadera
en esa irea, que en un tiempo finan-
ciaron tambitn "bucerias" de perlas
en las costas de Chiriqui.
Uno de los temples mis famosos
cs cl de Nuestra Seiora de Los Re-
mnedios, cuya image es muy vene-
rada por los residents del lugar que
Ic atribuyen muchos milagros. Es

una bella image de la Virgen Maria
que data de los tiempos de la colo-
nia. Remedios es la cabecera del Dis-
trito de Remedios y donde se asienta
una de las haciendas de ganado mAs
famosas de la Repfiblica, la de los
Hermanos Motta, conocida en todo
el pais como el Rancho Motta, done
se han criado numerosos grande
campeones de came vacuna, recono-
cidos tanto en ferias nacionales conmo
San F6lix, lugar por done bajan
los indios de la sierra es otro centro
commercial important. Es ademais
centro agricola y ganadero. Pero la
principal caracteristica de San F6lix
es cl clima, ya que estai asentado en
las estribaciones de la gran Serrania
del Tabasari.
Parte de ]a importancia de San
Felix se ha perdido, debido a tque
la cabecera del Distrito fue estable-
cida en Las Lajas. Pero, esta ultima

poblaci6n, situada unos 8 kil6metros
al sur de San Felix, ademAs de su
riqueza agricola y pecuaria, posee
unas playas que con much raz6n
son consideradas como las mejores
de la Rep6iblica de PanamA. Ya hay
various consorcios financiers intere-
sados en la construcci6n de hotels
de lujo en esas playas, para lo cual
se estt planeando, como primer paso,
la construction de vias de access
apropiadas a esa region que puede
convertirse en un emporio commercial
de la naci6n.

Gotas de Historia

greso el informed de la Comisi6n

Asi se Usa la Sangre

En la Zone del Canal

El Banco de Sangre comenzo en
1954 en el Hospital Gorgas.
En 1955 fue abierto el banco de
sangre en cl sector AtlAntico, en el
Hospital de Coco Solo. Desde en-
tonces, estas dos unidades han reci-
bido 27.000 unidades de sangre, de
las cuales unas 21.000 unidades se
han usado. Siempre que ha sido nece-
sario, la sangre de uno de los bancos
ha sido suministrada al otro, con el
fin de asegurar que siempre haya
sangre de todos los tipos, en cual-
quicra de Ins bancos, en cualquier
Debido a eque siempre es necesario
convertir cierto numero de unidades
de sangre en cualquiera de sus dife-
rentes derivados, se ha destinado el
Banco de Sangre del Hospital Gorgas
para esta clase de trabajo. Algunos
de estos derivados son: plasma fresco,
plasma preservado y c6lulas rojas
lavadas. La sangre, al no ser usada
en transfusions. o como cdlulas rojas
empacadas o como derivados de la
sangre, se convierte en sangre expi-

rada. Esta sangre expirada se utiliza
en el laboratorio para convertirla en
imedios para studios de bacteriologia.
Mas del 99 por ciento, de la sangre
donada y sus derivados, ha sido usado
en la Zona del Canal, en los hospita-
les Corgas y Coco Solo.
Siempre que ha sido necesario, se
ha enviado sangre y algunos de sus
derivados en vuelos de emergencia a
varies paises de Sur y Centro Am6-
rica, lo mismo que por helic6ptero a
naves en alta mar. A pesar de que
la Repsiblica de PanamA tiene sus
propios bancos de sangre, algunas
veces necesitan sangre de un tipo
particular. Cuando ello ocurre, y a
solicitud de un m6dico autorizado, se
ha suministrado sangre de los bancos
de la Zona del Canal.

Mdxico y Brasil figuran entire las
naciones que han ofrecido aumentar
sus contribuciones con el propdsito
de ayudar, durante 1968, a los paises
en desarrollo.

Henry A. Gaskin, pintor de r6tulos de la Divisi6n de
Abastos, examine un mural de instrucci6n que 61 pint6
en el Sal6n de Conferencias del Distrito Sur de Sanidad.
La historic que Henry cuenta artisticamente- es simple y
sumamente real, y sera usada en las conferencias que se
le dan peri6dicamente a los que manejan alimentos. Los
grandes cafiones de la derecha, usados en la guerra
ininterrumpida contra los germenes que causan enferme-
dades transmitidas por alimentos, no son otra cosa que
la aplicaci6n del calor, por medio de los diferentes
m6todos de cocimiento, que matan a los microbios, o los

diferentes medios de refrigeraci6n, que retardan el cre-
cimiento de las bacteria. La batalla contra los gCrmenes
no puede ganarse sin las defenses debidas, constituidas

nes de Jefe de la Divisi6n de Medi-

medicine en la Universidad de
Muenster, Alemania Occidental.
Recibi6 un grado de maestria en

(Viene de la pcigina 1)
tos funcionarios patronales la obliga-
ci6n de someter declaraciones de
empleo y de intereses financieros a
manera de asegurar que dichos enm-
pleados no se encuentren implicados
en situacioncs que presented un con-
flicto de intereses. Durante el afio se
han registrado algunos cambios de
menor importancia en dichos regla-
mentos. Uno de los cambios tuvo
como fin reducir el n6mero de em-
pleados que tengan la obligaci6n de
someter declaraciones relacionadas a
su empleo e intereses financieros.
Igualmente se modificaron los regla-
mentos con el prop6sito de limitar
a una vez por anio la presentaci6n de
las mencionadas declaraciones en vez
de cuatro por ano como se venia
hacienda con anterioridad. En la
actualidad solamente se cuenta con
44 empleados en el organismo del
Gobierno y de la Compafia que
tienen la obligaci6n de someter di-
chas declaraciones.
Otro cambio reciente en los regla-
mentos fue la modificaci6n de la dis-
posici6n que contempla la cuesti6n
de dAdivas. La mencionada disposi-
ci6n ha sido liberalizada para permi-
tir la donaci6n de regalos de valor
nominal en ocasiones que se traten
de una boda, enfermedad, o la jubi-
laci6n del empleado. La nueva dis-
posici6n reza asi:
"Un empleado no solicitari a otro
que contribuya hacia una didiva
para un funcionario superior, haga
una donaci6n a manera de dAdiva
para un funcionario superior, o acep-
te un regalo de un empleado que
devengue un sueldo inferior al suyo.
Sin embargo, por el present pArrafo
no se prohibe el obsequio voluntario
de un regalo de valor nominal o una
didiva de poca monta que se haga
en ocasiones que traten de una boda,
enfermedad o jubilaci6n".
El empleado que desee obtener un
ejemplar de los reglamentos que rigen
las "Responsabilidades y Conducta
del Empleado" podri comunicarse

nicamente Ilamando a los nmimeros
