Vol. VII, No. 17 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, October 11, 1968


Tops Its

CFC Goal

The Personnel Bureau is the sec-
ond Canal unit to reach and go over
the 100 percent goal in the Panama
Canal organization's 1969 Combined
Federal Campaign.
As of press time, contributions from
all Canal units totaled $136,981.49-
85.4 percent of goal.
The Supply and Community Serv-
ices Bureau, which went way over the
top with 161 percent of its goal the
first day, now has received contribu-
tions amounting to $32,844.75 or 171
percent of its goal.
The Community Services Division
has set an outstanding example in
this year's Combined Federal Cam-
paign. Every employee of the Hous-
ing Branch and the Grounds Branch
has contributed to the campaign to
attain 100 percent participation for
this division's 827 employees, as well
as 209 percent of the dollar goal
assigned to the division.
Other bureaus coming on strong
are Engineering and Construction
with contributions of $26,529.01 or
92.8 percent of goal followed closely
by Staff Units who have reached
91.8 percent of goal; Marine, 74.1
percent; Civil Affairs, 68.8 percent;
Health, 67.3 percent; Comptroller,
64.8 percent; and Transportation and
Terminals with 45.9 percent with
several units of MTD reporting 100
percent participation.
Contributors are asked to give
their "fair share" in the knowledge
that they are helping 21 agencies of
the United Fund and four organiza-
tions of the International Service
Give and give generously for these
worthy causes.

Walter R. Malone, master, floating
crane of the Panama Canal's Dredg-
ing Division will be honored at a
retirement party Saturday, Octo-
ber 26, at the Gamboa Golf and
Country Club. He is retiring from
Canal service after 35 years with

Xmas Gift


Time Near
With Christmas gift mailing time
just around the corner, the Canal
Zone Postal Division has issued a
memorandum concerning Bona Fide
Gift parcels from the Canal Zone to
the United States.
Canal Zone residents planning to
send bona fide gifts to the United
States under the U.S. Customs regula-
tions, which permiit such gifts up to
$10 in value to enter free of duty,
are reminded that they must mark
each package "Bona Fide Gift-Not
Exceeding $10."
But gifts up to $10 in value do
not have to be sent separately, if
such gifts are for several persons and
addressed to one consignee.
U.S. Customs regulations permit
the placing of gifts for several in-
dividuals in one parcel and address-
ing the parcel to one consignee pro-
vided that each parcel enclosed in
the larger parcel is separately wrap-
ped with the name and address of
the intended recipient and endorsed
"Bona Fide Gift-Not Exceeding
$10." The larger parcel will be en-
dorsed on the address side with the
number of Bona Fide Gifts enclosed,
each not exceeding $10. For example:
"3 Bona Fide Gifts Enclosed, Value
of Each Not Exceeding $10."
It is the responsibility of the sender
to properly mark "gift parcels."

No Swimming

Ban Lifted
Contamination of Chagres River
and Canal Zone waters has now been
reduced to the point where swim-
ming and water skiing can be re-
sumed, James P. MacLaren, Chief
of the Health Bureau's Division of
Sanitation has announced. The "no
swimming" signs have been removed
from the Gamboa area by Sanitation
Division personnel, he said.
Surveillance by bacteriological
examination of various points in the
Chagres and the Canal will continue
on a weekly basis.

Health Bureau Reports

On Isthmian Sniffles

The Canal Zone Health Bureau
reports a marked increase in cases of
acute upper respiratory disease on
both sides of the Isthmus during the
past 2 weeks.
The number of individuals report-
ing to the general outpatient clinics
at both Gorgas and Coco Solo Hos-
pitals has increased as a result. The
disease which is equally prevalent
among children and adults, produces
symptoms similar to that of any acute
viral upper respiratory infection.
There is a sudden onset of head-
ache and fever with marked chilli-
ness, loss of appetite and generalized
aching, particularly in the back and
legs. An accompanying cough causes
some burning and pain beneath the
breast bone.
Health officials emphasized that

An illustrated lecture on Morocco
will be presented by Mrs. Florence

Caribbean College Club meeting on
October 15, at 7:30 p.m., at the Cris-
tobal Woman's Club in Margarita.
Mrs. Mallet is a former resident of
Balboa and a past member of the
Diablo Camera Club.
The colored slides in illustration
of Mrs. Mallet's lecture were taken
on her recent trip to Morocco.
All members and guests are wel-
come to attend.

Big Surge

In Traffic

Heavy oceangoing traffic kept the
Panama Canal Marine Traffic Con-
trol men hopping during the first
week of this month when the 7-day
daily average of ships being put
through the Canal rose to a high
of 45.
Oceangoing arrivals in Canal
waters totaled 114 for October 4
and 5.
The surge of shipping was attri-
buted to the large number of vessels
leaving or by-passing United States
east coast and Gulf ports the last part
of September to avoid the threatened
longshoremen's strike called for
September 30.
As a result, southbound traffic was
somewhat heavier than that moving
northbound. During the first 8 days,
there were 206 ships going south and
160 transiting north.
Traffic was considered current by
the Marine Traffic Control by
Wednesday when the backlog caused
by the heavy shipping surge was
eliminated. On October 7 and 8, 99
ships were transited through the

Pen Women Elect

this is a mild, self-limiting disease AA
which normally lasts 3 to 5 days and I/rs. / eiSSner

which reaches its peak intensity on
the second day. Only an occasional
case has required hospitalization.
To avoid becoming ill, persons of
all ages are advised to avoid ex-
haustion, eat moderately and keep
away from crowded areas. If early
symptoms develop, pamper yourself
by additional rest, take aspirin as
needed and force liquids. If there is
unusually high fever or a persistent
and painful cough, it may be neces-
sary to consult a physician. Elderly
persons should seek advice from a
physician as early as possible after
the start of the symptoms.
Though the symptoms are similar
to those of the flu or a severe case
of the grippe, no confinnation has
yet been received as to whether this
is an ordinary adenovirus upper res-
piratory infection or the flu. Serum
from acutely ill patients have been
sent to the Middle America Research
Unit to establish the diagnosis.

Sami Savitt lias wrritten and illus-
trated a book for horse lovers.
America's Horses shows 22 breeds
and types which are most familiar
in America. Full-color illustrations
and black and white drawings show
characteristic action and settings for
Quarter Hlorses, Arabians, Palomi-
nios, and many more. Tlhe text gives
the history of each and description
of particular qualities and desirable
coonformation. The result is a hand-
Sinoe and instructive guide book to
the Ilorse famIily.
Sleepers Can Kill by Simon Jay is a
satisfying little yarn about five com-
munist espionage agents living un-
obtrusively in New Zealand. A British
counter-espionage agent, trying to
protect the secrecy of a new weapon,
finds that sleepers can, indeed, kill.

which accompanied discovery of the
oil fields, and is full of the togili,
tenacious men who were part of the
history. Authentic and unusual back-
ground adds interest to this adven-
ture story.
The Five-Day Course in Thinking
by Edward de Bono is good fun for
those who enjoy puzzles and mental
twisters. The author argues that
thinking is a skill and can be devel-
oped and improved, if one knows
how. Ilis book works toward this end
by presenting a series of problems to
be solved by thinking or by trial and
error. It's very useful as long as one
doesn't cheat and look at the answers

Canal's Newest 1

Arrives This We(

The Panama Canal's newest tug-
boat, the Julian L. Schley, the first to
be named after a former Canal Zone
Governor since General Goethals was
so honored in 1961, arrived in Cris-
tobal this week from New Orleans,
where an impressive christening
ceremony took place.
The tugboats in the Panama Canal's
present fleet are named after places
in and around the Canal Zone, with
the exception of three-Goethals,
Wallace, and Stevens. A few months
ago a system was set up to name new
tugboats after Canal Zone Governors.

NEW CANAL PILOT-Capt. John H. Dickman, left, receives his unlimited
pilot's license from Capt. Donald A. Dertien, USN, Director of the Panama
Canal's Marine Bureau. Captain Dickman was born in Gloucester, Mass.
He received a bachelor of Marine Science degree from the Maine Maritime
Academy, Castine, Maine. He attended the University of Hawaii in Hono-
lulu in 1955 and then entered the New Mexico Institute of Mining and
Technology, where he was graduated in 1959 with a bachelor of science
in Geophysics. He also attended the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at
La Jolla, Calif. He worked with various steamship companies and was on
a voyage to Vietnam when he was accepted for Canal pilot-in-training
in January 1967.

We won't go into the whys and

it quite thoroughly on page 246 of
his book on Behavioral Psychology,
"The Id and The Ego-And How
To Tell the Latter from The Former."
Oddly enough, this was Dr. Gestault's
last book prior to his death from a
fractured skull. It seems he was or.

As November and election time
draw near, it's interesting to see
how many different bumper stickers
people are putting on their cars.
We've seen old cars with new
stickers, new cars with old stickers,
cars without stickers, stickers without
cars, and so on. But the strangest
one around is the car that belongs to
either the most liberal around or
the most indecisive person op the
Isthmus. The car has three bumper
stickers on it-all different. And that's
kind of rough when you only have
one vote.
And speaking of voting, Janet
Winford, wife of policeman Bobby
Winford, has done a great job with
her group of housewives and'college

about absentee voting to the Canal

the sleeves halfway up his arms. Bob
had on a jacket that reached down
to his knees, since he is of slender

they were working on the bridge of
the ship they both took off their
jackets-and you can guess the rest.
The last we saw of them, they were
still trying to track each other down
so they could go home-with their
own jackets.

In Floral Work
The 24th annual flower arrange-

October 21. A series of eight classes
will be taught by Mrs. Pat Morgan
in the auditorium of the "Y", cul-
minating in the annual Christmas
flower show December 9.
Classes will include a historical
background; basic principles of de-
sign and color harmony; cut flowers
in design; fruits and vegetables in
design; the use of dried and exotic
materials; and special Christmas
arrangements. One of the sessions
will be devoted to Japanese flower
Registration for this course will
be accepted at the Service Desk
during the week prior to October 21
in order to avoid confusion at the
opening session. No registration fee
is required. Since the Balboa YMCA

4 years to examining and evaluating
approximately 16,000 dust covered
glassplate negatives dating as far
back as 1885 (taken by French
photographers with the French Canal
Co.) and up to 1940 when paper
negatives came into existence.
Working on his own time and
without compensation, Bouche dug
through dust of more than 80 years
to produce a comprehensive, compact
and well-indexed photographic his-
tory of the Canal construction period
with special emphasis on the engi-
neering aspects of the feat. His care-
ful research and dedicated investiga-
tion of the Canal's collection of
earliest photographic records has
netted an album of 2,233 positive
plates representative of the Panama
Canal construction day history.
Since many of the glassplates show
the very beginning of Canal engi-
neering projects now under water
and no longer visible, these are a
living testimonial of the progress of
the building of the locks, dams, and
other construction works. Of inter-
est also, are the many photos of the
early ships which transited the Canal.
Besides Canal history, Bouche is
interested in Isthmian geology and
archaeology and is an active rock-
hound and bottle collector.

Siga Estos Consejos al

Trabajar con las Manos

Para hacer las cosas bien, no basta
con esmerarse.
Para hacer bien cualquier trabajo,
hay que usar las herramientas y me-
dios adecuados para cada ocasi6n. Si
va a pintar, usted usa una brocha,
un rodillo o una pistol rociadora.
Cuando se trata de cortar inetales,
se usa una sierra especial para cortar
metales; si se trata de cortar una pie-
dra, se usa una sierra de cantero, y
si se trata de cortar irboles, se usa
una sierra de talar. A nadie se le
ocurrira utilizar un simple serrucho
de carpintero para cualquiera de es-
tas labores. No s61o quedaria mal el
trabajo, sino que so romperia el se-
rrucho en cuesti6n de minutes y la
persona estaria expuesta a un acci-
Con las labores de limpieza suce-
de exactamente lo mismo. La segu-
ridad exige que se utilicen implemen-
tos de limpieza de acuerdo con lo que
se limpia y, sobre todo, que se use
el cepillo mas convenient para el
caso. Asi se hace bien el trabajo y,
sobre todo, se protegen las manos.
Muchos acostumbran recoger ba-
sura, virutas o aserrin con las manos,
exponiendose a que se les clave una
astilla en la piel. Dicen esas perso-

nas que ello no tiene importancia,
pero la verdad es que una pequena
astillita puede causar una gran infec-
ci6n. Esas infecciones han sucedido
y en muchos casos ha habido que
amputar la mano. Y, ide qu6 sirve
un trabajador manco?
Cuando estc en la fabrica o en el
taller, prottjase siempre las manos
y, por favor, si tiene que limpiar algo,
no lo haga con las manos desnudas.
Si tiene que limpiar piezas de una
maquinaria, no se le ocurra usar un
trapo, pues si por cualquier motivo
la maiquina empieza a,funcionar el
trapo podria enredarse en la misma
y ousted podria hasta prerder un dedo
o perder la mano entera.
Por eso, cualquiera que sea el tra-
bajo, piense primero en la manera
de hacerlo bien y luego, protejase
utilizando los medios quo le permi-
tan Iacerlo con seguridad.
Si va a limpiar, use un cepillo
Proteja sus mlanos, porquc sus
manos son indispensables y no se
pueden reemplazar.

los bombers de la Zona del Canal.
"Si se le incendia una cacerola

"Si se le incendia el horno, corte
el calor. Trate de apagar las llamas
cerrando la puerta del horno por unos
moments. Si ello no da resultado,
abra un poquito la puerta del horno
y use un extintor quimico o de di6xi-
do de carbon. A falta de un extintor,
trate de echar sobre las llamas bicar-
bonato de soda (no polvos para
hornear, sal o harina).
"PERO-si el incendio prende ar-
ticulos combustibles cercanos (o ame-
naza con prenderlos) saque a todo
el mundo de la casa, cierre la puerta
de la cocina para evitar que el incen-
dio se propague, salga y lame a los

rola incendiada. No use agua o grasa
para apagar las llamas pues estas

Bueno, amigos, aqui estamos nue-
vamente. Ya no les diremos "si para
conversar o para aburrirlos", porque
sucede que ya nos estamos aburrien-
do de decirles siempre la misma cosa
y ademis, para que ustedes no nos
digan que sonamos como disco

Azael Benavides, de las oficinas de
la Division de Ingenieria en el ter-
cer piso del Edificio de Administra-
ci6n de Balboa Heights, esta toman-
do gran afici6n a la jardineria. Todas
las mafianas se le puede ver obser-
vando atentamente los papos del par-
quecito situado enfrente del Edificio
366 de la Oficina de Personal en
Anc6n. Tan atento permanece en sus
studios de bot-nica que ya ni ve a
la enorme cantidad de autom6viles
de compaineros de trabajo que de-
tienen la march con el fin de reco-

Alfredo Garcia, president del
Circulo de Periodistas de Col6n, y
oficinista en el Dep6sito de Aduana
de la Divisi6n de Terminales en
Crist6bal, anda en estos dias mas
content que "un cholo encorbatado"
porque uno de sus proyectos mis
grandes estA siendo puesto en mar-
cha, despu6s de muchos contratiem-
pos. Dice Garcia que la Casa de la
Cultura de la ciudad de Col6n pron-
to sera una realidad. "El sentido de
conciencia civica que se ha desper-
tado en Col6n, con motivo de la
construcci6n de la Casa de la Cul-
tura es maravilloso", dice Garcia, "el
Arquitecto Jose Manuel Meana harA
los pianos completamente gratis y su
padre, el conocido contratista Ma-
nuel Meana Canal, se encargarA de
la construcci6n y son muchas las per-
sonas que han ofrecido su coopera-
ci6n. Garcia calcula el costo del edi-
ficio en unos $200.000. Cuando uno
ve a "Fello" Garcia no se imagine
que el hombre empuja tanto.

Otra cosa que nos dijo el presi-
dente del Circulo de Periodistas de
Col6n es que los residents de la
Zona del Canal estAn interesadisi-
nos en la Casa de la Cultura, al
extreme que la Asociaci6n de Auto-
movilistas Deportivos del Istmo esta
planeando un Grand Prix a beneficio
de su construcci6n.

Y ya que andamos por los lados
del Dep6sito de Aduanas (Freight
House) de Crist6bal, en esos predios
trabaja Arturo Fareux, cuyo apellido
se pronuncia "Faruk" exactamente
como el del difunto ex Rey de Egip-
to. Por eso sus compafieros le Ilaman
el Rey Faruk. Hacemos constar nue-
vamente que le Ilanan asi porque
su nombre suena como el del monar-
ca cgipcio y no por su corporatura,
pues su ninmero de cintura es por lo
mcnos tres veces menor que el del
Rey Faruk. Ademis, el Rey Faruk
de Terminales de Crist6bal se dis-
tingue por ser hombre jovial y que
siempre atiende a las personas que
solicitan sus servicios con un chiste
en los labios. Arturo es un reputado
arbitro de boxeo en Col6n, y fue
boxeador en su tiempo.

A veces nos gusta ponernos a
hojear los diccionarios para ver si
encontramos palabras nuevas que
enriquezean nuestro vocabulario.
Pues, buscando en el Pe(uefio La-
roussce de Cincias y Ticnicas en-
contramos la siguiente palabra: "PIE-
ZOELECTRICO, CA. adj. Electr.
Dotado de piezoelectricidad: los me-
jores cristales piezoeldctricos son he-
nmieilricos. Relative a la piezoelec-

tricidad o fundado en ella: micrd-
fono piezoeldctrico. I! Constante pie-
zoelectrica, relaci6n que existe en un
cristal piezoelictrico entire la presi6n
aplicada en sus caras y la diferencia
de potential el'ctrico que dicha pre-
si6n provoca entire las mismas".
Cuando tenninamos de leer las ex-
plicaciones que nos daba el diccio-
nario corrimos a donde los ingenie-
ros Rubelio Quintero y Numan H.
Vasquez, quienes son los inicos que
podian despejarnos la nebulosa in-
telectual que nos dej6 la palabreja.

La siguiente definici6n es de un
senior Herb Sherry; no sabemos qui6n
es, pero dijo una gran verdad: "La
tolerancia es la habilidad que puede
tener uno de sonreir a sus invitados
aun cuando su esposa le est6 dando
una regafiada en p6blico".

El Profesor George V. Richards,
director de la Escuela Secundaria de
Paraiso, tiene uno de los autom6vi-
les mis elegantes de la Zona del
Canal. El otro dia, la esposa de Ellis

Ilosos en estos dias es el Profesor
Jos6 D. Ampudia, quien acaba de re-
gresar de los Estados Unidos, donde
obtuvo su master en educaci6n fisica
en el Springfield College, en Spring-
field, Massachusetts. La tesis de Am-
pudia fue un studio cientifico y
comparative sobre los zapatos de
balompi6 y de beisbol, que sirven
para correr sobre tierra y sobre hier-
ba. La tesis de Ampudia sostiene y
prueba contundentemente que no
hay diferencia alguna entire las dos
classes de calzados. Tan interesante
ha sido el trabajo de Ampudia que
la revista de investigaciones cientifi-
cas Research Quarterly, de Wash-
ington, D.C., se propone publicarla.
Tambien la Universidad de PanamA
se ha interesado en ella, lo mismo
que la Divisi6n de Escuelas de la
Zona del Canal. Los colegas del Pro-
fesor Ampudia dicen que lo notan
mais gordito en estos dias, pero nadie

triunfos alcanzados o porque la co-

Para lograr una jubilaci6n feliz, el
planeamiento financiero es el factor
mAs important. La mayoria de los
problems psicol6gicos de la jubila-
ci6n son el resultado de unas finan-
zas inestables, por lo que cualquiera
que planee jubilarse debe comenzar
a hacer un inventario de su active
El planeamiento financiero puede
tomar la'forma de un aumento en los
ahorros para mayores entradas du-
rante los "afios dorados" o puede
consistir tambien en calcular los
gastos, si la persona que se va a jubi-
lar sabe exactamente cuAles van a
ser sus entradas mensuales.
Al calcular los gastos, hay ciertos
factors que no deben ser pasados
por alto. Pueden eliminarse o ajus-
tarse los gastos en lo que respect a
vacaciones costosas en el extranjero,
primas de seguros de vida, en la edu-
caci6n de la familiar y en el transport
hacia el trabajo.
Los gastos pueden reducirse en
impuestos, articulos para el hogar,
autom6viles nuevos, ropa formal,
fiestas, regalos, contribuciones y
membrecia en diferentes clubes.
El saber estos hechos sobre las
entradas y los gastos darA al que se
va a jubilar una sensaci6n de segu-

Evite Aglomeraciones

Durante Este Tiempo

Un vocero de la Direcci6n de Sa-
lubridad de la Zona del Canal anun-
ci6 que se ha notado un marcado
aumento en una enfermedad del
tracto superior respiratorio durante
las 2 iltimas semanas, en ambos lados
del Istmo. Desde la illtima semana
de septiembre, los casos que se han
presentado en los dispensarios del
Gorgas y de Coco Solo, han aumen-
tado considerablemente. La enferme-
dad se present tanto en los nifios
como en los adults y ha causado
moderado ausentismo en las escuelas.
Los sintomas parecen sefialar la
existencia de una infecci6n causada
por un virus que ataca el tracto su-
perior respiratorio. Aparece con dolor
de cabeza, fiebre y marcados escalo-
frios, p6rdida del apetito y dolor en
todo el cuerpo, particularmente en
la espalda y en las piernas. La tos
que acompalia a la infecci6n causa
algo de ardor y dolor bajo el ester-
n6n. Los sintomas son en general
parecidos a los de un severe caso de
influenza, pero todavia no se tiene
confirmaci6n sobre si es un caso de
infecci6n por virus en el tracto supe-
rior respiratorio o s61o de influenza.

Para evitar contraer la enferme-
