Activities Galore

Planned for "4th"

Plans for the Independence Day
celebrations on the Atlantic and
Pacific sides of the Isthmus are near-
ing completion and this year promises
a variety of activities to make it a
successful July 4th observance.
There will be parades, ceremonies,
parachute jumps, free movies, kiddie
rides, and dazzling displays of fire-
On the Atlantic side, the speaker
will be Col. James J. Mahan, who
soon will assume command of the
Atlantic Area Installation Command,
succeeding Col. William L. Hum-
phrey. Colonel Humphrey will serve
as Grand Marshal of the July 4th
Parade at Coco Solo.
At Balboa, invited dignitaries in-
cluding Canal Zone Gov. W. P.
Leber, USSOUTHCOM Commander
in Chief Gen. Robert W. Porter, Jr.,
U.S. Ambassador Charles W. Adair,
Jr., and Panama Protocol Director
Camilo Levy Salcedo will review the
parade from a special stand near the
Goethals Monument area. No cere-
monies are planned at Balboa.
The Atlantic side parade will begin
at 10:30 a.m. at Coco Solo. It will


Laws of U.S.

Are Changed

Changes in U.S. immigration laws
taking effect July 1 will increase the
time required to process and issue
U.S. immigration visas for aliens
born in the Western Hemisphere.
The changes do not affect persons
applying for tourist visas.
Effective July 1, a U.S. citizen
must file an immigration visa petition
as sponsor in behalf of each alien
immediate relative for whom entry to
the United States as a resident is
desired. The term "immediate rela-
tive" includes only spouses, parents,
and children under 21 years of age,
including adopted children who have
been in the legal custody of their
U.S.-citizen parents for 2 years or
more subsequent to their adoption.
No other dependent relatives qualify
as "immediate relatives." Only after
"immediate relative" status has been
verified can action be taken to issue
the visa.
"Immediate relative" visa appli-
cants should apply to the appropriate
Visa Office more tlan 2 months in
advance of their planned travel date
to allow sufficient time for the pro-
cessing of visa petitions by the Im-
migration and Naturalization Service
and for completion of all other docu-
inentation. Residents of the Canal
Zone should apply for visas at Room
249, Administration Building, Balboa
Heights. Residents of the Republic
of Panama should apply at the

start from the Coco Solo Post Office
parking lot and go up Fulton Road to
Severin Avenue, left onto Calhoun
Road, down Gushing Road to Sperry
Road, to Holland Road and then
down Johnston Avenue, terminating
at the Coco Solo Elementary School.
Units from the Army, Navy, School
of the Americas, 8th Special Forces,
the Panama Bomberos Corps, and
National Guard will participate, plus
various civic organizations, veterans
associations and several of the area's
horse riding clubs. An added attrac-
tion in the parade will be the new
Little League Football Queen and
the league's cheerleaders, all of
whom are pre-teenage youngsters.
Martial music will be provided by

Safe Boating Week

To Begin June 30

Gov. W. P. Leber has announced
that the week beginning June 30 will
be observed as Safe Boating Week
in the Canal Zone following a proc-
lamation by President Lyndon B.
Governor Leber noted that boat-
ing is a popular activity in the Canal
Zone and urged all boating enthu-
siasts in Zone waters to place heavier
emphasis on safety and courtesy. He
stressed that responsibility is the key
to the enjoyment of safe boating. All
regulations and safety measures
should be followed, the Governor
said, to keep the "pleasure" in
pleasure boating.
The President's proclamation said
in part:
"Each year more and more Amer-
icans go boating in their leisure
hours. If we are to prevent the need-
less loss of life and property, this
increasing traffic on our waterways
must be accompanied by greater
awareness of safe boating practices.
"The principal agent of boating
accidents last year was a careless
operator. The most common errors
were overloading or improper load-
ing of small boats-mistakes easily
avoided by the boatowner who
understands his boat, its machinery,
and its operation.
"An aggressive and comprehensive
program of safety education-sup-
ported, where necessary, by law en-
forcement-can reduce the rate of
boating accidents, and make boating
what it should be: a purely pleasant
"Recognizing the need for em-

phasis on boating safety, the Con-
gress of the United States, by a joint
resolution approved June 4, 1958
(72 Stat. 179), has requested the
President to proclaim annually the
week which includes July 4 as
National Safe Boating Week:
DON B. JOHNSON, President of
the United States of America, do
hereby designate the week beginning
June 30, 1968, as National Safe
Boating Week."

Early Deadlines

For July 5 Issue
Due to the Independence Day
holiday July 4, there will be a
1 day advance in deadlines for the
July 5 issue of the PANAMA
Material intended for that issue
should be in the Panama Canal
Press Office not later than Friday
afternoon, June 28. Only urgent
material can be received for use
the same week as late as Monday,
July 1.

Pay increases that take effect
July 14 will fatten paychecks by
some $4.5 million annually for more
than 11,000 Panama Canal em-
ployees. Most wage categories are
affected, covering 7,400 non-U.S.
citizen and 3,600 U.S.-citizen em-
The increase for non-manual and
postal employees is the second phase
of a three-phase pay package en-
acted by Congress the past fall. The
July increase for postal employees is
a flat 5 percent while the increase
for non-manual employees will range
from about 3 percent in the first six
grades to 7.5 percent in the highest
grades, averaging about 5 percent
over the entire schedule.
The first phase increase, last Octo-
ber, for non-manual and postal em-
ployees, averaged 4.5 percent and
6 percent, respectively. The third
phase increase for July 1969 will
match the increases of this July.
Increases for police, firemen,
teachers, postal, and non-manual em-
ployees stem from local administra-
tive application of pay legislation
enacted for comparable positions in
Federal agencies in the United States.
Canal pilots, executive, and staff posi-
tions, hospital chiefs of services,
Power Branch supervisory employees
and Latin American schoolteachers
will receive related administrative
Police, firemen, and teachers bene-
fit in July and also receive a re-
troactive increase to the past Octo-
ber 8. The retroactive increase
averages 7 percent and the July 1968
second phase increase is about 10
percent. Some grades will receive
more or less than this amount.
The wage rates for Manual Cate-
gory employees and related wage
board employees will be increased as
a result of the scheduled annual
reviews. Averaging about 4 percent,
this pay raise will also benefit appren-
tices, class 4, learners, and Railroad
Group employees.
Employees in the lowest steps of
grade NM-1 and those in the Manual
Category in the first six pay levels

and some learner classes will not
receive increases in July because of
the increases granted to them in
February 1968 when the Fair Labor
Standards Act $1.15 minimum wage
increase was applied.
Those not receiving increases in
July include also student aids and
student assistants, medical interns,
and residents. Two other groups not
receiving July raises are floating
equipment group employees and the
non-supervisory employees in the
Power Branch Group who receive
pay adjustments following the dates
of their regularly scheduled annual
reviews in March and August.
It has not yet been determined in
what paychecks the raises'will be

Gets Commendation

A letter of commendation has been
presented to A. R. Sealy, Panama-

speedy response to a Panama Canal
pilot's request for assistance, pre-

serious accident.
The incident occurred early in June
when the freighter Pacific Defender
experienced a steering gear failure
leaving Pedro Miguel Locks north-
According to the letter of com-
mendation from Capt. A. L. Gallin,
Chief of the Navigation Division,
"upon loss of steering control, the
pilot took steps to stop the vessel
and her stern was thrust toward the
west bank and was in imminent
danger of grounding.

"Bury Me Dead"


By Emily J. Price
Love and Work by Reynolds Price
is a new novel by an outstanding
Southern author. It is a sensitive
study of a man undergoing a period
of grief and change in his life follow-
ing the death of his mother. The
book is interesting also as a new
phase in the development of a fine
writing talent.
The Horsemen by Joseph Kessel
has been the top best-seller in France
since it was published there. Now
brilliantly translated into English, it
is a story of present-day Afghanistan,
a landlocked monarchy of mountains
and vast steppes, whose tribal
patterns of life have not changed in
hundreds of years. An aging chieftain
and his proud and violent son are the
principal characters in this monu-
mental novel about a strange and
barbaric yet very human people.
Rex Stout is back with a new Nero
Wolfe mystery, The Father Hunt.
Nero is almost stymied by this one
when he seeks to unravel a 20-year-
old crime. However his brains, forti-
fied by gourmet meals and the whiff
of orchids, finally solve the puzzle.

In his book World-Famous Trials,
Charles Franklin has assembled a
series of 22 trials among the most
noted in history. They begin with
the famous trial of Socrates and end
with the recent ones of Lord Haw-
Haw and the Rosenbergs. Many
took place against the background of
stirring events and some involved
the fate of nations, such as the trials
of Joan of Arc, of Mary Stuart, and
of her grandson Charles I of Eng-
land and the famous Dreyfus Case.
Clearly written, with many direct
quotations from actual testimony,
this book casts light on some strange
interpretations of justice.
Memoirs of a Banknote is written
by J. Paco d'Arcos, Portugal's lead-
ing literary figure. It tells the story
of a 500-Escudo note and of those
through whose hands it passes, in-
cluding a woman who is on her way
to the gas chamber, a happy bigamist
about to acquire another wife, and
a counterfeiter who uses the note
for a model. This is a delightfully
written short novel.

A visit to his old stamping grounds in Cristobal was made recently by John

Community Leaders Briefed

On Canal Zone Youth Matters

Canal Zone community leaders,
representatives of every phase of
community life, were given an
orientation briefing and heard sub-
committee reports at the meeting
with the Governor's Executive Com-
mittee for Youth-Family-Community
Relations held in the Board Room of
the Administration Building, Balboa
Gov. W. P. Leber commended
the members of the group who, he
said, are giving their time and work-
ing for the benefit of the community,
and particularly the youth of the
community. He invited all sugges-
tions, ideas, recommendations, and

Balboa Union Church Pastor Rev.
Clarence C. Payne, chairman of the
Executive Committee, who presided,
described the 13-member Governor's
Executive Committee as a "Citizens'
Advisory Board." This is not an action
group, but an intensive study group,
a fact-finding force, which will take
problem areas and study them in
depth. Policy-recommendations will
then be offered to the Governor.
E. F. McClelland, executive di-
rector of the Balboa YMCA, chair-
man of the Subcommittee on Porno-
graphic Literature, reported that the
responsibility of this subcommittee
was defined as relating to the censor-
ship of paper back books and maga-
zines presently on display and for
sale to the general public in the
Canal Zone. Complaints had been
lodged individually and by members
of the Civic Council to the Governor
with a request for action and the
Governor referred the problem to the
Youth, Family, and Community Rela-
tions Executive Committee, request-
ing advice and recommendations.
The subcommittee recognized that
control of some sort is practiced of
necessity because of the great mass
of material published each year. After
of material published each year. The
consensus of this committee was
against literary censorship as infring-
ing upon the rights of the individual
as stated in Article 1 of the Bill of
Rights of the U.S. Constitution, but
recommended the selection process
be strengthened.
Mrs. Beverly Baker, president,
U.S. Civic Council of Coco Solo,
chairman of the Subcommittee on
Movie Entertainment, reported that
the members studied the methods by
which films are obtained and the
problems involved in trying to pro-
vide 300 or more films a year that
will satisfy the varying tastes and age
groups of the Zone's movie going
public. A major concern of the sub-
committee, she said, was that so
many children and young people
consistently attend "adult" films.
"We are all aware that films have
changed in the frankness and realism
with which they portray life," she
said. "Much of this realism reflects
in our changing attitudes and more
realistic view of life, and much of it
represents an attempt by movie
makers to capitalize on shock value
to lure the crowds."
Dr. Mary V. Graham, Chief, Com-
munity Health Branch, Division of
Preventive Medicine, chairman of the
Subcommittee on Drug Abuse, stated
that her subcommittee had studied
police statistics and had discussed the
drug abuse problem with legal

authorities, mental health officials
and school authorities and had had
extensive interviews with teenagers.
She noted two classes of drug
users, the hard core, whose number
in the community is small, and the
group that is experimenting and is
large. The committee, she said, dis-
cussed and recognized the ease of
drug acquisition in this area and is
continuing its fact-finding research.
As part of the educational program,
Dr. Graham reported on the show-
ing of the film on LSD.
Subcommittee on Health Educa-
tion Chairman Dr. L. E. Horine,
supervisor, Physical Education and
Athletics, U.S. Schools, reported this
subcommittee was assigned the task
of making a responsible determination
of the adequacy of health education
in the Canal Zone. Health education
was defined as a broad but important
responsibility of the community em-
bracing educational promotion for
such concerns as drug abuse, alcohol,
smoking, nutrition, family planning,
and illegitimacy. Such educational
promotion is channeled to adults and
youth alike through schools, hos-
pitals, health clinics, churches, social
organizations, mass-media, literature,
medical health foundations, and other
structures of community life.
Paul M. Runnestrand, Panama
Canal Executive Secretary, chairman
of the Subcommittee on Alcohol Use
By Minors, reported that prior to the
appointment of this subcommittee,
Dr. Graham's Subcommittee on
Drug Abuse had run into the problem
of alcohol because of indications in
many cases of a correlation between
marihuana experimentation and pre-
vious heavy drinking by the young
people involved. He pointed out that
the task of the Subcommittee on
Alcohol Use will include study to
determine the nature and scope of
the problem, a survey of the avail-
ability to minors of alcoholic bever-
ages and beer and the need for
further administrative controls, and
an evaluation of present legal controls
and suggestion of additional controls
if needed.
He said the Subcommittee is aware
of the need to include direct con-
sultation with representative young
people of the community so that their
participation and contribution will be
reflected in the efforts to achieve
reasonable and realistic conclusions
and recommendations.
Governor Leber, bringing the
meeting to a close, suggested hold-
ing a session with the young people
of the community in the near future
for discussion of community problems
and programs.

Ham Field Day

Is Busy One

At Margarita
Approximately 2,100 contacts
throughout the United States and
other parts of the world were made
during the emergency field day oper-
ation recently held by the Crossroads
Amateur Radio Club, at the old Mar-
garita Retail Store.
The purpose was to set up amateur
radio equipment under simulated
emergency conditions such as would
be necessary during disaster periods.
Approximately 100 visitors were
present to view the activities.
Seven licensed operators partici-
pated, but three of them had to work
at their regular jobs sometime during
the 27-hour period. Potential "hams"
assisted in setting up the equipment
and served as loggers. Two trans-
mitters with tri-band antennas and
emergency generators were used.
This annual contest is sponsored
by the American Radio Relay
League, Inc., of Newington, Conn.,
and is considered a training exercise

Ha sido asignado a la Divisi6n de
Ingenieria del Ej6rcito de los
EE. UU. en Huntsville, Alabama,
pero estarA acantonado en la Divi-
si6n de Ingenieria del Ej6rcito de los
EE. UU. en Nueva Inglaterra con
cuartel general en Waltham, Massa-
El Coronel Beatty, quien tambien
actu6 como Oficial Militar de Enlace
para la organizaci6n del Canal, vino
a la Zona del Canal el afio pasado
procedente de las Instalaciones de
Pruebas Mississippi del Cuerpo de
Ingenieros del Ejircito de los
EE. UU. cerca de Nueva Orleans.
Fue Ingeniero del Area a cargo de
la construcci6n de la instalaci6n de
$150 millones diseiiada para levar a
cabo las pruebas de la primera y
segunda etapa del lanzamiento a la
luna del Apolo.
Naci6 en M6xico, Missouri, asisti6
a la Universidad de Missouri y se

gradu6 en la Academia Militar de
EE. UU. en West Point en 1946.
Recibi6 su grado de maestria en in-
genieria en 1950 en la Universidad
de Iowa.
De 1960 a 1964 sirvi6 en el Dis-
trito de Ingenieria de Honolulu
como Ingeniero Ayudante del Area
y mis tarde como Segundo Ingeniero
de Distrito.

Aumentos de sueldo que serin efectivos a partir del
14 de julio abultarAn las n6minas de pago en unos
$4.5 millones anuales para mas de 11.000 empleados
del Canal de PanamA. La mayor parte de las categories
de salaries por hora es beneficiada, cubriendo a 7.400
que no son ciudadanos estadounidenses y a 3.600
empleados estadounidenses.
El aumento para los empleados no manuales y pos-
tales es la segunda fase de un paquete de tres fases
promulgado por el Congreso en el otofio pasado. El
aumento de julio para los empleados postales es de
un 5 por ciento exacto mientras que el aumento para
los empleados no manuales fluctuarA entire 3 por ciento
en los primeros seis grades a 7.5 por ciento en los
grades mAs altos, dando un promedio de 5 por ciento
en el program complete.
La primera fase del aumento, en octubre pasado,
para los empleados no manuales y postales, tuvo un
promedio de 4.5 por ciento y 6 por ciento, respectiva-
mente. La tercera fase del aumento para julio de 1969
equipararA los aumentos de este julio.
Los aumentos para policies, bombers, maestros y
empleados postales y no manuals provienen de la
aplicaci6n local administrative de la ley de pago
promulgada para posiciones comparable en agencies
Federales en los Estados Unidos. PrActicos del Canal,
posiciones ejecutivas y de personal, jefes de servicios
de hospital, empleados subjefes del Ramo de Energia
Electrica y maestros de Escuelas Latinoamericanas
recibiran aumentos administrativos similares.
Los policies, bombers y maestros beneficiados en

julio, tambien reciben un aumento rctroactivo al pasado
8 de octubre. El promedio de aumentos retroactivos es
de 7 por ciento y el aumento de la segunda fase de
julio de 1968 es de alrededor del 10 por ciento. Algunos
grades recibirAn mis o menos esta cantidad.
Las tarifas de salaries para los empleados de Cate-
goria Manual y de los empleados en categories simila-
res serAn aumentadas como resultado de la revision
annual aprobada. Dando un promedio de alrededor del
4 por ciento, este aumento de sueldo tambien benefi-
ciara a los aprendices, principiantes de clase 4 y
empleados del Grupo de Ferrocarril.
Empleados en los escalones mAs bajos del grado
NM-1 y aquellos en la Categoria Manual en los prime-
ros seis niveles, y aumentadas classes de principiantes,
no recibirAn aumentos en julio debido a los aumentos
concedidos a ellos en febrero de 1968 cuando se aplic6
el aumento de salario minimo de $1.15 de la Ley de
PrActicas Laborales Equitativas.
Entre los que no reciben aumentos en 'julio estAn
tambiin auxiliaries estudiantiles, ayudantes estudianti-
les, m6dicos internos y residents. Otros dos grupos
que no reciben aumentos en julio son los empleados
del grupo de equipo flotante y los empleados que no
son subjefes en el Grupo del Ramo de Energia El1c-
trica quienes reciben ajustes de salario despues de las
fechas de sus revisiones anuales regulars en marzo y
No se ha determinado todavia en cuales cheques
de pago vendrAn los aumentos.

Carta de Encomio Para Operario

De Lanchas que Evit6 Accidente

Aubrey R. Scaley, operario de lan-
chas en la Division de Navegaci6n,
recibi6 una carta de encomio al aten-
der rapidamente una solicited de
ayuda que le hiciera un practice del
Canal de Panama y evitar asi un
probable desenlace fatal en aguas del
El incident ocurri6 a principios
de junior cuando el carguero Pacific
Defender tuvo un desperfecto en el
mecanismo de direcci6n cuando de-
jaba las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel
rumbo al norte.
La carta de encomio, que el Capi-
tan A. L. Gallin, Jefe de la Divisi6n
de Navegaci6n, dirigi6 a Aubrey R.
Sealey describe el incident y la va-
liosa intervenci6n de este iltimo de
la siguiente manera: "al perder el
control de la direcci6n, el prictico
del Canal tom6 las medidas para de-

tener el barco, y la popa empez6 a
moverse hacia la orilla occidental con
inminente peligro de encallar. El
practice pidi6 la ayuda de la lancha
de Sealey y su rApida acci6n en
llevar su lancha Sailfish del lado es-
tribor a la cuadra de babor de la navo,
coloc6 a la lancha en la posici6n de
prestar mejor servicio. Usando today
la fuerza de sus maquinas, used pudo
detener la popa del barco y evitar
que golpeara contra la orilla occi-
dental del Canal".
Sealey se siente orgulloso de haber
recibido esta carta de encomio, y ma-
nifiesta que es la segunda que recibe,
ya que en 1963, cuando trabajaba
cerca de la Isla de Flamenco, le en-
comendaron la misi6n de buscar a
medianoche a un muchacho explora-
dor enfermo en la Isla de Taboguilla.
"Con el mar un poco picado y sin

Es Proclamada la Semana

De Seguridad en el Agua

El Gobernador W. P. Leber ha
anunciado que la semana que co-
mienza el 30 de junior sera observada
como la Semana de Seguridad en el
Agua en la Zona del Canal, como
resultado de una proclama del Pre-
sidente de Estados Unidos Lyndon
B. Johnson.
El Gobernador Leber sefial6 que
los paseos en botes son actividad
popular en la Zona del Canal y ex-
hort6 a todos los entusiastas que uti-
lizan las aguas de la Zona del Canal,
a preocuparse por la seguridad y cor-
tesia. Hizo hincapin en que la res-
ponsabilidad es la clave para que se
gocen verdadcramente los paseos en
bote. Debe cumplirse con todos los
reglamentos y medidas de seguridad,
dijo el Gobernador, para poder tener
el Placerr" de pasear en bote.
La proclama del Presidente dice
en parte:
"Todos los ainos, nis y mas ciu-
dadanos pasean en bote en sus horas
de descanso. Si queremos evitar in-
necesarias p6rdidas de vidas y pro-
piedades, el creciente trnfico en nucs-
tras vias acuaticas debe ir acompa-
fiado de un mayor cumplimiento de
las medidas de seguridad en el agua.
"El agent principal de los acci-

dentes habidos en botes el ano pasa-
do fue un opcrario descuidado. Los
errors mAis communes fueron sobre-
cargar o cargar mnal los botes peque-
lnos-errores que pueden ser fAcil-
mente evitados por un dueno que
conozca la maquinaria y la operacion
de su bote.
"Un program agresivo y com-
prensivo de educaci6n en cuanto a
la seguridad-apoyado, si es necesa-.
rio, por medio de la ley-puede re-
ducir la proporci6n de accidents y
hacer que los paseos en bote sean
lo que deben ser: una recreaci6on
vcrdaderamente placentera.
"Reconociendo la necesidad de
hacker 6nfasis en la seguridad al prac-
ticar los deportees acuaticos, el Con-
greso de los Estados Unidos, por
medio de resolucidn conjunta apro-
bada el 4 de junior de 1958 (72 Stat.
179), ha solicitado al Presidente que
proclaim anualmente la semana que
include el 4 de julio, como Semana
National de Seguridad en el Agua:
JOHNSON, Presidente de los Esta-
dos Unidos de America, design por
este medio la semana que comienza
el 30 de junior de 1968, como Semana
National de Seguridad en el Agua".

En el trabajo tambi6n sucede que muchas veces dudamos sobre lo
que vemos y corremos riesgos innecesarios. Cuando encontramos la
respuesta ya es demasiado tarde y el accident ha sucedido.

muelles donde atracar, hice llegar mi
lancha hasta la arena para recoger el
enfermo sin que se mojara. Esta fue
la primera vez que visitaba Tabo-
guilla y 6sta fue tambidn una gran
experiencia para mi".
Otra experiencia, de grandes re-
cuerdos, fue la que tuvo una noche
navegando en su lancha con un mar
picado al lado de un barco. El mari-
nero que lo acompafiaba cay6 al mar
y la oscuridad no le permitia avis-
tarlo. De inmediato encendi6 todas
las luces, arroj6 salvavidas al agua y
empez6 a gritar el nombre del mari-
nero. Este contest y asi pudo salvar-
