Civic Councils Briefed

On New Hospital Rates

An increase in rates for services
in Canal Zone hospitals, a discussion
of care of the senile in the Canal
Zone and contraband control were
among the subjects discussed at the
U.S. Civic Council's first executive
session, with Gov. W. P. Leber after
the summer recess.
The new rates, which go into
effect January 1, will help offset the
costs of salary increases, generally
higher maintenance and operating
expenses and improved equipment
and services. The major areas where
these rate changes will occur include
outpatient clinic consultations, room
and board and specialized services
and surgery.
Some rates were increased last
January, primarily on inpatient serv-
ices, where they resulted in a
weighted average increase of 11 per-
cent, the Governor explained. Out-
patient services were adjusted for
such items as X-rays, plaster casts,
and radioisotope treatments. Gov-
ernor Leber pointed out, however,
that consultation rates in the Canal
Zone have not been increased for
the last 7 years.
A table, distributed to the Civic
Council representatives, showed the
projected biweekly premium pay-
ments scheduled for 1969 for the
Mutual of Omaha plan, together with
existing rates for other plans.
A brochure being published by
the Civil Service Commission, and
to be distributed to. U.S. citizens in
December will explain any changes
in benefits and premiums scheduled
for 1969 for all the Health plans
participating under the Federal Em-
ployees Health Benefits Act. In a

discussion on contraband control,
Dr. Teodoro Arias of the Ancon-
Balboa Heights Civic Council pointed
out that the present Panama Canal
authorization card does not carry a
photograph of the person to whom
it is issued, and therefore the cashier
has no way of knowing whether the
actual card owner is the person
making the purchase.
Governor Leber said the sugges-
tion of a check of privilege cards at
the doors of the Retail Stores and
Service Centers has been discussed.
Work is continuing on the problem,
he said.
Mrs. Darleen Ashby of the Pacific
Civic Council presented a letter per-
taining to a suggestion for establish-
ment of a senile ward at Gorgas
Hospital. Corozal Hospital, she said,
no longer takes care of senile patients.
Care of the senile is a real prob-
lem, Governor Leber said, but
pointed out there is no authority, no
facilities and no money for this type
of operation.
Even if the Canal Zone had a
building for a home for the senile,
as proposed by Dr. Arias, this would
be only part of the solution, for per-
sonnel would be needed to staff the
home, Governor Leber said.
Mrs. Doris Sanders of the Cris-
tobal-Margarita-Brazos Heights Civic
Council suggested installation in the
Canal Zone of a washateria or laun-
dromat as a particularly helpful serv-
ice for newly arrived families.
Several other Civic Council repre-
sentatives favored such a service and
Governor Leber said the suggestion
would be looked into.

Richard J. Bjorneby of the Coco
Solo Civic Council requested that
Panama Canal employees be given
more information on how to com-
plete claims for travel allowances.
Robert MacFarland of the Cristo-
bal-Margarita-Brazos Heights Civic
Council suggested the Claims Branch
enumerates just what is covered in
a travel claims check and that a
brochure on basic allowances for
travel be included in the travel
packet for employees going on leave.
Governor Leber said a brochure
could be helpful for reference.
Mrs. Beverly Baker of the Coco
Solo Civic Council reported that at
the last meeting of this council, a
delegation from Cristobal High
School was present to give the stu-
dents' views against the closed lunch
hours. The psychology of the closed
lunch hour is difficult for the students
to accept, she reported and noted
that the students' views were well
presented. The Civic Council is
assisting the students in continuing
to get their views to the school
Governor Leber praised the fine
way the matter is being handled and
told the Civic Council it is doing a
real service in showing the students
how to present their case. The Bal-
boa High School cafeteria won't be
in service until the first of next year,
he said, "but already we're hearing
about it." "The school is there to
serve, not dictate," Governor Leber
added. "If the parents show me they
feel a need for an open school lunch
period, we'll look into the pros and

continued to pace the other bureaus,
with $30,981.50 or 161 percent of
goal raised. This bureau had 150 per-
cent of goal on the first day of the
campaign-the second straight year
it has topped goal on the first day.
Other bureaus coming on strong
as of Tuesday were Personnel with
84.2 percent of goal, Engineering
and Construction with 55.4 percent,
and Marine with 43.5.
CFC officials expressed enthusiasm
over the positive general response so
early in the drive, and predicted
even greater tallies as the campaign
moves ahead.
Other unit returns were Comptrol-
ler, 30.8 percent; Civil Affairs, 16.4;
Health, 14.8; Staff units, 13.7; and
Transportation and Terminals, 6.8.
PanCanal's overall goal is $160,350,
of which 48.3 percent was raised as
of Tuesday, with nearly a month left
of campaigning.
As in the previous year's drive,
contributors are urged to "check off"
their fair share and become members
of the Fair Share Club. Members
will be entitled to wear the distin-
tive checkmark, now on order, iden-
tifying them as not only having con-
tributed but to an extent generously
commensurate with their annual
The identifying pin is gold colored,
and may be worn proudly during the
CFC campaign and long after as an
object of costume jewelry. Measuring
% inch along the longer side and
about % inch on the shorter, the pin
can be worn as a tie tac, lapel button
or just a plain pin.
Give generously this year, and

Inventory Closings
The Stationery, Athletic, and
Service Center supplies sections
located at Section "B" Balboa will
be closed for inventory Tuesday,
October 15, and again Friday,
November 1, for recount.
To protect their needs during the
closing periods, all units should ob-
tain sufficient operating supplies prior
to the closing dates.

Tyrone M. Pettiford, held by his father, R. T. Pettiford, who is with the
Tropic Test Center, knows something important happened. And to prove
it there's the Certificate of Citizenship in Dad's right hand. At right is
Mrs. Pettiford. Tyrone was one of some 300 persons issued Certificates of
Citizenship after hearings conducted recently at the Diablo Heights Ele-
mentary School. Andrew J. Carmichael, Jr., and William T. Jarmon of the
U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service conducted the hearings.

New Address Robert Silverstein

To Speed up Is Given Farewell

Tipei veries

,.. ,, V JL.A.-
A beneficial suggestion by an em-
S ployee of the Panama Canal's Water
STransportation Division office results
Sin a new, simplified address for ship-
ments of packages and personal
elects of Canal Zone personnel from
New Orleans to the Canal Zone on
the SS Cristobal.
The address now to be used, to
facilitate handling, is:
(Employee's name)
Water Transportation Division
Panama Canal Company
4400 Dauphine Street
New Orleans, La. 70140
ate of This address also will ensure de-
rt for
who livery of mail and telegrams. Mes-
ate of sages via military radio will con-
tinue to be addressed: "Pancanalco
New Orleans."
The former address, with the in-
dividual's name, was in care of U.S.
Naval Support Activity, New Or-
leans. Cargo handling personnel then
had to telephone the Army or the
Water Transportation Division office
in New Orleans in order to identify
the packages. That procedure often
resulted in delay in loading of the
items, which sometimes missed a
.2 voyage completely.
The benefits to be derived from
adoption of this address change sug-
gestion are intangible, but will serve
primarily to reduce frustration and
delay in forwarding of employees'
lin personal shipments via the Cristobal.

spected by others, he must have

New Members
Persons interested in educational
self-improvement and the develop-
ment of their speaking skills are
invited to be guests of the Isthmian
Toastmasters Club which meets in
the Roosevelt Room of the Tivoli
Guest House on the first and third
Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.
Toastmasters is more than a club.
It is an education as it provides an
opportunity for people to meet and
benefit from an exchange of ideas.
When people talk together honestly
and intensely, problems are solved
and mental blocks disintegrate.
Toastmasters offers this opportunity
in an atmosphere of conviviality.
The club also offers a challenge
and opportunity to speakers with
varied speaking experience.

Plans Observance

With the observance of Fire Pre-
vention Week in the Canal Zone
from October 6 through October 12,
the Panama Canal Fire Division has
organized a fire prevention program
emphasizing the importance of fire
prevention and precautions which
should be taken to keep fire hazards
at a minimum.
The special feature for Fire Pre-
vention Week in the Canal Zone will
stress "Good Housekeeping-On The
The weeklong program includes
skits on fire safety in the elementary
schools, poster contests in the various
schools, display of winning posters
in public buildings, schools and in-
dustrial areas, and a fire prevention
display in the Balboa Theater lobby
and Margarita Service Center.
Fire Prevention Week will open
on both sides of the Isthmus with
parades of fire apparatus by the Fire
Division. The Panama bombers will

participate in the parade with their
firefighting apparatus and band. The
U.S. Air Force crash firefighting
apparatus also will take part in the
parade which starts at the Goethals

the Atlantic side, the same activity
will take place with the Colon bom-
beros participating in the parade

invited to visit fire stations and fire
prevention lectures and demonstra-
tions will be made available by the
Fire Division on request.

There are only 82 shopping days
left until Christmas, in case you
hadn't noticed, Mom. . In fact,
the big day is drawing near so rapidly
that we have already started com-
piling our lists and from the looks
of them, some of our readers are
really looking forward to that visit
from Santa. For example, Dick Wil-
liams wants a nice 150 percent United
Fund participation award to hang on
the back of Jim MacLaren's car
(showoff!) and Jack Gregory wants
that degree he's been working on at
Florida State University.
Herschell Dempsey wants that nice
little fann in Alabama, with a quiet
stream where he can get in some
fishing, while Hubert Jordan wants
better luck on his fishing trips so he
can enjoy some of those good eating
.fish he knows are in the Panama area
(Getting tired of blowfish ceviche?).
Ken Underwood wants a round-
trip ticket to Miami so he can go to
another party like the one he went
to last month, and what a party
that was!
But the nicest Xmas letter we've
received was the one that read:
"Dear Santa, I have been a good
boy all year, so please bring me a
big autographed picture of my idol,
TINY TIM. Signed, Elmer Nord-
strom, age 38/2." (And a ho-ho-ho
to you, too).
Now that the VI International
Film Festival has come and gone,
the true story can be told. Although
it was kept secret throughout the
duration of the affair, I found out
that one of the most famous world
personalities of the motion picture
industry was here, and I managed to
arrange to interview him.
I went to the plush downtown
hotel where our mystery friend was
staying and went directly to the fifth
floor as I'd been instructed to do on
the telephone. This was very tiring
because the elevator was out of
order. But I managed. At the top of
the stairs, I was met by a burly body-
guard who closely inspected my
briefcase, and then gave me further
"Look, Mac-youse jest walk down
da hall till you get to da Coke ma-
chine, see. Then, push da button on
da machine dat says "Coca-Cola"
and when da door swings open, go
in and someone will meet'cha get it?"
"Got it," I replied, and started
down the hall. Everything went off
like clockwork. When I stepped in-
side, the door slammed shut behind
me and a voice whispered to me from
a speaker hanging on the wall:
"Iley, mistuh, are youse da guy
what wants to interview Mr. X?"
"That's correct," I said, "What do
I do now?"
"Listen," continued the voice,
which sounded like BB's bouncing
off a tin roof, "da passwoid is 'I loves
da way you wear your hair.' Got
"Got it," I said.
"Good," continued my unseen
proctor. "Now, when youse gets to
da green door ahead of youse, just
rap twice softly and give da pass-
woid to whoever opens da door.
Then, youse'll be shown in to da
Inner Sanction."
"SANCTUM," I corrected.
"You're welcome," said the voice,
and the speaker clicked off. I fol-

the door was opened by a fellow
who looked like a mutation of King
Kong and Godzilla.
"Yeah," snarled the doorman,
"Whaddaya want?"
"I loves da way youse wear your
hair," I answered solemnly.
"Look, mac," he bellowed, "flat-
tery will get you nowhere. Now
whaddaya want?"
"I want to see Mr. X," I said.
"I've got an appointment to inter-
view him."
"Well, c'mon in," he muttered,
and stepped aside so I could enter
the room, then led me to a little guy
seated behind a huge desk in the
middle of the room.
I was flabbergasted. I was at a
loss for words, Finally, I gasped:
"You're Mr. X?"
"So, who was you expecting?
Betty Grable, maybe?", squeaked
Irving Poshnesky. Irving Poshnesky,
the greatest actor in the world. The
marvelous thespian who had played
some of the most difficult roles ever
dreamed up for motion pictures. And
here I was in the same room with
him. I saw now why they had kept
his presence such a closely-guarded
secret. This was the man who had
played The Bridge'in "BRIDGE ON
THE RIVER KWAI;" the caboose,
in "THE TRAIN;" the overcoat, in
THE COLD," and a myriad of other
equally trying roles.
"But, but-Mr. Poshnesky, what
are you doing here, so far away from
Hollywood?", I stammered, still
somewhat shocked.
"My friend," he said, "I am pre-
paring for my greatest role, and I am
here to gather background material
on the subject so that I may reach a
new zenith in the forthcoming pro-
duction which will be my last prior
to retiring from the screen."
"And, may I ask, what this role
is going to be?", I questioned.
"I, Irving Z. Poshnesky, the great-
est living character actor in the entire
world and the moon, according to
Ranger IV," he said, drawing him-
self up to his full 4 feet 5 inches in
height and with madness dancing in
his eyes, "am going to play BAL-
BOA. . ."
"Why, that ought to be terrific,"
I said. "You mean, the famous
Spanish explorer, don't you?"
"NO", he roared hysterically,
"I mean THE TOWN . ."
You know, I got out of there so
fast, I think I pushed the Grape
Soda button by mistake on the way

Hle aqui una de las jugadas emocionantes que realizan
estos futures grandes del baloncesto en los partidos de
la Liga Juvenil de Baloncesto de Santa Cruz, cuya pri-
mera vuelta acaba de finalizar con la rotunda victoria
del Deportivo Transportes Chilibre. En la foto, Chris-
topher Cox y otro compafiero suyo que apenas se puede
vcr, del Deportivo Webster, tratan de evitar que Leslie
Ilaughton, uno de los mayores anotadores del torneo.

El Deportivo French, que habia
conquistado la primera vuelta del
torneo infantil de baloncesto de San-
ta Cruz, se anex6 la segunda vuelta
y con ella el campeonato de la Liga
Infantil de Baloncesto de la comu-
nidad de Santa Cruz.
Al French le correspondi6 tam-
bi6n obtener el honor de contar en
susi filas a los dos mayors anotado-
res del torneo, Alberto Hoyte, quien
col6 nada menos que 334 puntos,
seguido por su compafiero de equipo
Arturo Pinnock con 270 puntos,
quien fue su mas cercano rival du-
rante el torneo.

del Deportivo Bircenas, enceste una bonita canasta.
Esperan impacientes el desenlace de la jugada Rogelio
Green (9) y Rogelio RomAn (12) del Barcenas y otro
jugador no identificado. La segunda vuelta se inici6 el
martes 19 del present mes y promete ser mis intere-
sante todavia. El otro equipo participate es el Depor-
tivo Nightingale, que en la primera vuelta termin6 em-
patado en la segunda posici6n con el Deportivo Barcenas.

En segundo lugar qued6 el De-
portivo Walter, equipo que habia
quedado en el s6tano en ]a primera
vuelta, pero que en la segunda, ins-
pirado por la recia defense de Er-
nesto Malcolm y los seguros ences-
tes de Vicente Welsh, de su capitin
de equipo Pedro Cooper, y Jorge
McFarlane, se convirti6 en el dolor
de cabeza de los demAs equipos y
logr6 siete victorias contra solamen-
te cinco derrotas.
Otro equipo que demostr6 bastan-
te adelanto fue el Deportivo Brath-
waite, que se adjudic6 el tercer lugar
y que cont6 con los punteros Enri-
que Amantine y Angel Cedefio. Fi-
nalmente, el Deportivo McFarlane,
que a pesar de ocupar el s6tano en
la liga se mantuvo siempre en la
dispute y siempre luch6 por obtener
la victoria. Roberto Sealey, Emilio
Amantine y Angel Bowen del De-
portivo MacFarlane integraron la
n6mina de los 10 mejores anotado-
res de la liga, que fue todo un 6xito
deportivo gracias al interns de todos

sus jugadores y al respaldo que siem-
pre ha sabido dar la comunidad en-
tera al Profesor Joseph French, orga-
nizador de la misma.

Nuevamente estamos aqui con
ustedes, quien sabe si para que se
rian un rato o para que nos insulten,
pero haremos todo lo possible para
que esto iltimo no suceda.

l toy, 4 de octubre se celebra la
fiesta de San Francisco de Asis, por
lo lque a todos los que se Ilaman asi
los felicitamos por ser el dia de su
Santo. Pero tambien hoy se celebra
la fiesta de los santos Petronilo,
Eusebio, Marcos, Cayo y Aurea. Asi
que tambiAn felicitamos a los que se
llaman asi.

Julian HIoyte, el popular vicepre-
sidente del Consejo Civico de Santa
Cruz y dinAimico inspector del Dis-
trito de Bomberos de Balboa, es un
hombree de nuchas actividades. Pero
entire sus aficiones no esta la del
canto. Recientemente, hubo un acto
de reconocimiiento en la Escuela Se-
cundaria de Paraiso en honor de una
querida educadora y un gran can-
tante local, Juan Hoyte, reforz6 al
coro de la Escuela Secundaria. Pero
sucede que al cronista el primer
nobre que se e vino a la mente
fue el de su hennano.JuliAn. Este
protest enseguida, diciendo que una
de las pocas habilidades que no po-
see es la de cantante. Que esa habi-
lidad es la de su hermano Juan
Hoyte. Nosotros cumplimos, aclaran-
do las cosas.

En las horas de merienda (Coffee
Break), en el Edificio de Adminis-
traci6n de Balboa Heights, la Cafe-
teria es centro de gran actividad so-
cial. Pero a las 9:30 a.m. y a las 2:30
p.m. una de las mesas donde se
reune la mayor cantidad del perso-
nal de la Divisi6n de Ingenieria es
aquella donde estA Victor L6pez, el
popular Nato L6pez, que todos los
dias trae un chiste nuevo de su co-
lecci6n. Dicen los asiduos de esa
mesa que los mejores chistes del Nato
son los que tienen sabor interiorano,
pues 61 sabe darles el acento que
s6lo un chitreano de pura cepa como
61 puede impartirles.

es un madrigal, pero nosotros cree-
mos que el siguiente es quizais el mis

Prince Albert (Principe Alberto)
Eastman, es un personaje pintoresco
que anda frecuentemnente por los
lados del Correo de Crist6bal. Tiene
nmis de 80 aflos y trabaj6 durante
mucho tiempo con la Divisi6n de
Terminales en el sector Athlntico.
Todavia trabaja como verificador de
carga con la Linea Italiana de Nave-
gaci6n en Crist6bal. Pero el episo-
dio cumbre de su vida le sucedi6 el
dia en que llegaba a Panama, duran-
te los dias de la construcci6n. Venia
procedente de la Cuayana Britzlnica,
su tierra natal. A] atracar al muelle
la nave en que Ilegaba, le llam6 la
atenci6n una gran banda military
cuyos instruments bien pulidos bri-
Ilaban al sol y que llenaba de aires
marciales toda la amplitud de los
muelles. Eastman se preguntaba
qui6n seria el personaje a quien es-
taban recibiendo. Pero cual no seria
su sorpresa al Ilegar al muelle, cuan-
do lleg6 un comit6 de recepci6n A
darle la bienvenida! La musica era
en su honor, pues se habia regado
la noticia de que el Principe Alber-
to, un reyezuelo africano, habia lle-
gado a PanamA a trabajar en la cons-
trucci6n de las Esclusas de Cat6n.

Por los lados del Atlantico, espe-
cificamente en la Represa de Gatfn,
se encuentra en estos dias Walter
E. Clarke, capataz de mantenimiento
de predios en el sector de Gatin,
quien se ha ganado el titulo que le
han dado sus amistades de "El Ene-
migo Nimero 1 de las Arrieras".

Y tambien por los lados del Athln-
tico, en las Esclusas de Gatin, se
puede ver la corpulenta figure de
Rupert Beckford, vicepresidente del
Consejo Civico de Rainbow City.
EstA en labores especiales en el tur-
no de 12 de la noche a 8 a.m. Pero
las malas lenguas dicen que su prin-
cipal trabajo es matar a las chitras
que quieren chuparle la sangre que
le sobra.
