Raymond Laverty Named

Supply Division Chief

Raymond P. Laverty, Jr., who has
held the position of Assistant General
Manager of the Panama Canal's Sup-
ply Division since January 1967, has
been appointed General Manager of
the Supply Division. He succeeds
John F. Manning, the Supply Divi-
sion's General Manager who retired
from Canal service last month.
Laverty, who was born in Brock-
ton, Mass., came to the Supply and

mediately after he obtained his
master's degree in Industrial and
Personnel Management from Boston

bachelor's degree from the Univer-
sity of Notre Dame.
He has progressed rapidly from his
initial status of graduate intern
trainee up through the positions of

CZC Theatre

Comedy Opens

March 26
"How To Succeed In Business
Without Really Trying," scheduled to
open at the Canal Zone College
Theatre March 26 for a 4-night
run, is a brilliant musical comedy in
which everything works out. Its
satire, humor, book, music, lyrics,
cast, staging, choreography, setting,
and general gaiety of spirit combine
in a smooth, fast pattern of expert
Satires on American big business
are far from new, but this show makes
the subject seem fresh. The book cap-
tures the mood of sharply satirical
fun and maintains it to the end, with-
out lapsing into moments of romantic
sentimentality. And it is hilarious
with remarkable consistency in its
dialogue, situations, and general
attitude toward the business world.
Jay Zeock has the role of J. Pierre-
pont Finch, played by Robert Morse
in the original New York cast. Bill
Oberreit will be seen as J. B. Biggley,
the role taken by Rudy Vallee on the
New York stage.
The New York show ran 31/2 years,
to March 6, 1965 for a total of 1,418
performances. A measure of the
show's success is that its movie rights
brought one of the biggest prices ever
known-$2 million.

It's Rating

Month for


This is "rating month" for all em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organi-
zation. Purpose of the Annual Per-
formance Rating Plan is to provide a
method to evaluate the work per-
formance of employees in order to
recognize their merits and contribu-
tion to efficiency and economy.
It also is felt that it helps improve
employee performance by: Strength-
ening supervisor-employee relation-
ships; identifying work standards and
requirements; informing employees
of these standards and requirements;
recognizing commendatory and out-
standing performance; recognizing
and correcting work deficiencies; pro-
viding a guide to personnel actions.
Supervisors are required to discuss
with and notify employees of their
ratings. There are three ratings:
"Outstanding," "Satisfactory," and
"Unsatisfactory." If you are rated
"Satisfactory," your supervisor must
notify you orally or in writing.
Written justification is required for
"Outstanding" and "Unsatisfactory."
Criteria are:
A. Quality of Performance:
(1) Thoroughness; acceptabil-
ity and adequacy of results.
(2) Dependability; accuracy
of work.
(3) Orderliness and neatness
of work.
(4) Technical skill with which

the Canal organization ever since,

work here."
Lovell was presented a Certificate

service; a Master Key to the Canal
Locks; a Certificate of Eminently
Satisfactory Extended Service and a
check for $500.
In a brief talk, Lovell expressed
his appreciation for the honors he'd
Lieutenant Governor Hartline ex-
pressed congratulations and thanks to
all the employees retiring from the

sad and unhappy to lose this group
from the Canal family. When we
look at the skills we're losing, we're
even sadder."
With the retirees' service repre-
senting nearly 2,000 man-years' ex-

two had between 45. and 50 years
experience; three had between 40
and 45 years; seven had between 35
and 40 years, and 23 had between
30 and 35 years experience.
The bureau chiefs of the retiring
employees were present and each

tirement certificate.

There is more to his job than meets
the eye.
Dr. Paul Iarry Dowell, who was
born in Colon, has been a veteri-
narian at Mindi since 1916, long
before Mindi was phased out as a
dairy and the buildings transferred
from the Supply Division to the
Health Bureau for use as an animal
quarantine station and hospital.
In a normal day he treats 20 to 30
dogs, a number of cats, has a horse
or two as patients, and performs sur-
gery. One day recently, there were a
half dozen dogs staying at Mindi in
quarantine and a dozen or so more
clogs in hospital for treatment. One
cat was in the feline section as a
quarantine case.
Cats as well as dogs must be quar-
antined for 30 days when entering
the Canal Zone from off the Isthmus
to prevent the introduction of rabies.

Return to C.Z.
Two Balboa High School students
have returned to the Canal Zone
after traveling to Lansing, Mich., to
compete for the $11,800 Alumni Dis-
tinguished Scholarship last month.
Four Balboa Hifgh School students
had been invited to Michigan State
University to compete, but only Ken
Burchfiel and Miss Mary Floyd made
the trip. The former is the son of
M. Sgt. and Mrs. Robert Starkey of
Toward AFB and the latter is a
daughter of CW4 and Mrs. Colum-
bus Floyd of Fort Clayton.
Miss Darcy Porter, daughter of Dr.
and Mrs. James Porter of Chicago,
Ill., and Mike Senzer, son of Dr. and
Mrs. David Senzer of Camboa were
the two who also had been invited to
Miss Floyd and Burchfiel, during
their stay at Michigan State, con-
ferred with distinguished members
of the Michigan State faculty in their
field of academic interest, met many
honor students, visited libraries, mu-
seums, art centers, laboratories, and
various classrooms.

hospital and quarantine station, Dr.
Dowell spends a good part of his
time examining animals aboard ships.
He also vaccinates animals and in-
spects approved food sources located
on the Atlantic side, such as dairies
and milk pasteurizing plants.
As part of the program conducted
jointly by Panama and the Canal
Zone to keep foot and mouth disease
from being introduced onto the Isth-
mus, Dr. Dowell physically exam-
ines all susceptible animals arriving
aboard vessels in the Canal Zone that
originate from infected countries and
which intend to transit the Canal.
Non-susceptible animals permitted
to be discharged at Canal Zone ports,
also are examined physically, and are
disinfected before entry is permitted.
Items associated with them aboard
the vessel, such as bedding, feed, and
the crate in which they arrive, are
put back aboard and sent on with
the vessel.
The animal quarantine station-
hospital was built in 1966, after

pen outside which could accommo-
date a score of more horses.
The buildings include an office for
Dr. Dowell and the hospital clerk,
Claude Cumberbatch, an admitting
and examination room, an operating
room, pharmacy, and storage room,
in addition to a ward for sick animals
and others for those in quarantine.
The operating room and examina-
tion rooms are air conditioned. The
animal quarters, under a roof, are
high and dry and screened as a pro-
tection against bats.
The hospital is operated by the
Health Bureau's Division of Veteri-
nary Medicine. Fees for professional
and other services are the same as
those charged at Corozal.

llenry Charles Gornell Valencia, es traductor interpreted
en la Oficina del Traductor Oficial, en el Edificio de
Administraci6n en Balboa Heights. Tiene poco tiempo
de trabajar con el Canal de PanamA, pero es persona
sunnamente culta y domina el alemin. Naci6 en Nueva
York y a los 6 meses de nacido vino a Panami. Su padre
Carlos Cornell Zachrisson (q.e.p.d.) era Gerente General
de la ESSO en Centro Amdrica y por ello, desde nifio
tuvo que viajar much. Su madre, dofia Ana Elida Va-
lencia de Gornell, pertenece a muy conocida familiar
panameia, lo mismo que su abuela paterna. Cornell hizo
su escuela primaria en la Escuela Americana de Tegu-
cigalpa, Honduras. La secundaria la curs6 en la Acade-
mia Militar de Riverside, en Gainesville, Georgia. Estu-
di6 quimica y biologia en la Universidad de Miami. En
ese tiempo, al igual que muchos estudiantes, se busc6 un
trabajo extra, como cajero en un supermercado. "Por lo
menos, daba para los cigarrillos", dice Henry. Al gra-
duarse, hizo trabajo de investigaci6n en bacteriologia y
serologia en el Centro de Investigaciones de la Univer-
sidad de Miami. Fue entonces cuando recibi6 la invita-
ci6n del Presidente de los Estados Unidos para alistarse
en el Ej6rcito, donde ingres6 con el rango de Subtenien-
te. Su servicio military lo prest6 en el Hospital de Fuerte
Gordon, en Georgia, como tecn6logo midico en el labo-
ratorio. Al terminal el servicio, vino a PanamA como re
presentante de ventas de Charles Pfizer, Inc. En ese
tiempo conoci6 casi toda la Repiblica, pues tenia que
viajar much. "La region de las tierras altas de Chiriqui
es un paraiso terrenal", dice Henry. Para ese tiempo
recibi6 una beca para estudiar aleman, en Frankfurt,
Alemania. Al regresar, entr6 al servicio del Canal de Pa-
nama. Henry pertenece al Club Uni6n y al Club de Golf
de Panami. Descendiente de una familiar de artists por
el lado de su abuela paterna, le gusta la pintura y actual-
mente practice la ebanisteria, como preparaci6n para
dedicarse a la escultura.

La Cruz Koja Ua Consejos

A los que Van a Veranear

Estando la estaci6n seca en su apo-
geo, muchas personas toman la ca-
rretera para dirigirse a las playas o
a las tierras altas del Interior.
La Cruz Roja Americana ha dado
a la publicidad algunos puntos que
uno debe poner en practice para estar
seguro en la carretera.
Primero: Antes de emprender via-
ie, aseg6rese de que su auto est6
bien, que sus frenos, luces, luces di-
reccionales, limpiadores de parabrisas,
tubo de escape y mecanismo de di-
recci6n estin trabajando debidamen-
te. Asegurese de que todas las llan-
tas, incluso la de repuesto, esten en
buenas condiciones.
Segundo: Mantenga libre de obs-
trucciones el espacio frente al vidrio
de la ventana de atris, de manera que
el conductor tenga una vision com-
pleta tanto para atris como para los
lados y hacia adelante. Empaque las
cosas dentro del auto de manera que
los ob etos no se conviertan en pro-
yectilcs peligrosos en caso de una
detencidn subita o de una colisi6n.
Tercero: Lleve consigo un buen
botiquin de prilmcros auxilios y algu-
nas luces de bengala, seiales intermi-
tentes u otra clase de aparatos para
advertir peligro.
Cuarto: Use los cinturones dte se-
guridad siempre.
Quinto: Descanse alrededor de
cada 2 horas, para mantcncrse sicm-
pre alerta.
Sexto: Deje espacio suficiente para
los movimientos impredecibles de los
demas conductores. Maneje a la de-
S6ptimo: Inspeccione las llantas,
por si acaso lian sufrido cortadas u
otros dafios, lucgo de viajar por ca-
minos rocosos o llcnos de beaches,
antes de volver a las velocidades de
la carretera.

Diga Donde Esti y Cuando
Regresarai una Persona Ausente
"Puede conseguirscle en la oficina
del Sr. PIrecz, en la Extensi6n 104
"Estarn fuera del edificio hasta al-
rededor de las 3 de la tarde".
"dPodria conseguirselo y decirle
,lue lo Ilamec, senor?"

Octavo: Tenga cuidado al usar
ventanas automaticas. Puede causarle
dafio a los nifios.
Noveno: No tome antes de mane-
jar; no maneje despues de haber to-
D6cimo: Observe los limits de ve-
locidad y obedezca las sefiales y
marcas que haya en la carretera.
Cuando encuentre mal tiempo, con-
duzca mas despacio y con mayor se-
guridad. Permanezca en su lado de-
recho, cuando maneje por la carre-
tera. Si hay una double linea en el
centro, el cruzarla para pasar otro
auto es peligroso e illegal.

mnuy active y se encuentra muy a
gusto con su trabajo. Pero es un me-
can6grafo tan rapido que de otros
departamentos le estAn poniendo el
ojo y ya le han llegado ofertas. La
contestaci6n del espigado Langshaw
es que esti muy a gusto con sus cuen-
tas por cobrar.

A diferencia de Langshaw, que se
conserve en linea, Cleveland A. Pig-
gott, del mismo departamento, es un
hombre corpulento al cual, en apa-
riencia, no le important much las
calories. Sus compaiieros lo estiman
much. Pero done Cleveland se hace

Muchos de los empleados del Canal
de Panamri utilizan los servicios de
unos hombres, a quienes quizais, nun-
ca conoceran por sus nombres. Son
los conductors de taxis que se esta-
cionan en las cercanias del Almacen
de Balboa. Aqui los nombres de algu-
nos: Carlos Charleston, quien ha tra-
baiado en ese oficio durante unos 50
afios; Antonio Jones, con mais de 15
de ser conductor de taxi en la Zona
del Canal, y Vicente Gugliotti. Este
iltimo vino a PanamA en 1910. De
1912 a 1916 fue conductor de carro-
zas ffinebres, de aquellas tiradas por
caballos en la Zona del Canal. En
1916, se alist6 en el ejdrcito y fue a
pelear a Europa. Regres6 en 1921 y
sigui6 conduciendo carrozas ffine-
bres hasta 1922, cuando empez6 a
conducir un taxi. Desde entonces, ya
hace unos 47 anios, ha estado haci6n-
dolo. Tiene un Chevrolet viejito, pero
todavia sirve.

Gwendolyn Gelate es una de las
atentas cajeras del Centro de Servi-
cios de Balboa. La Sra. Gelate tiene
mas de 15 anios de prestar servicios
con el Canal de PanamA y se la cono-
ce por su caricter alegre y por tener
siempre un chiste en los labios, aun-
que haya much calor. Y la verdad
es que en el Centro de Servicios de
Balboa hace bastante calor.

Hablando del calor, la Srta. Ivy
DaCosta, tambien camera y de mu-
chos afios de servicio con cl Canal de
Panami, dice que el calor tiene sus
ventajas y es que no hay que preocu-
parse much de la dieta. La verdad es
que la Srta. DaCosta siempre tiene
la sonrisa en los labios para tender
a los clients . a pesar del calor.

Y ya que andamos rondando por
los predios del Centro de Servicios
de Balboa, se habran preguntado us-
tedes qui6nes serAn las personas que
hacen esos bellos pasteles de cum-
pleailos que adornan la mesa de tan-
tas fiestas infantiles y de otras que
no son tan infantiles?

Pues, les diremos que todos los
dulces y today la pasteleria que se
vende en el Centro de Servicios de
Balboa proviene de la Planta de
Mount Hope, con la excepci6n, pre-
cisamente, de los pasteles de cum-
pleafios. Esos son hechos por tres
artists de la pasteleria. Son la Srta.
Estela Mitchell, y las sefioras Elena
Barton y Olga Ashby. Pero muy pocas
veces las venrn en el mostrador. Ellas
cstain en su reino escondido, creando
mtis obras de arte de la pasteleria.

Y ya que hablamos de personas
que sirven a todo el mundo, sin que
la mayoria del public se dli cuenta
de quitnes son, les diremos que today
la cantidad de trabajo de escritorio
que se necesita para cque los aficio-
nados al cine de los teatros del Canal
de Panamai vean sus peliculas prefe-
rida:;, corre a cargo de la Sra. Lena
Rhoden, secretaria de William B.
Mallory, Jele del Servicio de Pelicu-
las de la empresa del Canal. Hlay
otros 1mis, que se encargan de lcevar
las pcliculas a los cines y otros que
son los que las proycctan, pero eso
lo iremos diciendo mais adelante. Si,
so neecsitan muchas cosas para que
usted pueda ver una pelicula.

Brillante Comedia
"C6mo Tener Exito en los Nego-
cios sin Esforzarse", que se estrenara
en el Teatro de la Universidad de la
Zona del Canal el 26 de marzo para
una temporada de 4 noches, es una
brillante comedia musical en la que
hay de todo: sAtira, humor, libreto,
mimsica, elenco, decorados, escena y
un ambient general de regocijo, que
se combinan en un gran espectAculo.
Las sAtiras acerca de los hombres
de negocios de Estados Unidos son
algo viejo, pero esta comedia las hace
parecer nuevas. El libreto capta la
diversion satirica en gran forma y la
mantiene hasta el final, sin caer en
moments de sentimentalismo ro-
mintico. Es muy alegre y, a la vez,
de una consistencia sobresaliente
Stanto en el diAlogo como en las situa-
ciones que present y en su actitud
hacia el mundo de los negocios.
Los papeles principles serAn inte-
pretados por Jay Zeock y Bill Ober-
reit. El papel de 6ste uiltimo, J. B.
Biggley, lo interpret Rudy Vallee en
Nueva York.
Para reservaciones, deberA llamar-
se al Teatro de la Universidad de la

Un Veterinario Colonense

Con Trabajo Interesante

El Dr. Paul Harry Dowell, quien
naci6 en Col6n, ha sido veterina-
rio en Mindi desde 1946, much
antes de que Mindi dejara de existir
como lecheria y que los edificios fue-
ran trasladados de la Divisi6n de
Abastos a la Direcci6n de Salubridad
para ser usados como estaci6n de cua-
rentena animal y hospital. (Foto en
la secci6n inglesa.)
En un dia corriente trata de 20 a
30 perros, algunos gatos, tiene uno
o dos caballos como pacientes y hace
una operaci6n. Recientemente habia
media docena de perros en Mindi
que estaban en cuarentena y una
docena o mAs de perros en el hospital
para recibir tratamiento. Un gato es-
taba en la secci6n felina como un
caso de cuarentena. Los gatos lo
mismo que los perros, deben estar en
cuarentena por 30 dias cuando en-
tran a la Zona del Canal procedentes
del exterior para prevenir la intro-
ducci6n de hidrofobia. La Repiblica
de PanamA tiene reglamentaciones
AdemAs de esos deberes en el hos-
pital y la estaci6n de cuarentena, el
Dr. Dowell pasa buena parte de su
tiempo examinando animals a bordo
de barcos. Tambien vacuna animals
e inspecciona fuentes de alimentos
aprobados situadas en el sector AtlAn-
tico, tales como lecherias y plants
pasteurizadoras de leche.
Como parte del program dirigido
conjuntamente por PanamA y la Zona
del Canal para evitar que la fiebre
aftosa entire al Istmo, el Dr. Dowell
examine a todos los animals suscep-
tibles que llegan a la Zona del Canal
a bordo de barcos que proceden de
paises infectados y que intentan tran-
sitar el Canal. Los animals no sus-
ceptibles a los que se permit bajar
en los puertos de la Zona del Canal,
tambicn son examinados fisicamente,
y son desinfectados antes de que se
permita su entrada. Articulos asocia-
dos con ellos a bordo del barco, tales
como lecho, alimentos y la canasta
en que Ilegaron, son puestos de vuel-
ta a bordo y enviados con el barco.
La cuarentena y hospital de ani-
males fue construido en 1966, des-
pu6s que la Lecheria Mindi fue ce-
rrada, para proporcionar amplios ser-
vicios medicos y quirimrgicos ademais
de las instalaciones de cuarentena
animal para la comunidad del Atlan-

Lecheria Mindi, el hospital y cua-
rentena tiene facilidades para ence-
rrar animals perdidos o sin licencia,
lo mismo que perros y gatos de los
que se sospecha tengan hidrofobia
que hayan mordido a una persona
y deben ser observados durante 10
dias. Tiene espacio para 45 anima-
les pequefios y establos para dos ca-
ballos ademis de un corral afuera
para acomodar unos cuantos caballos
Los edificios incluyen una oficina
para el Dr. Dowell y el oficinista del
hospital Claude Cumberbatch, un
cuarto de admisi6n y examen, un
cuarto de operaci6n, fannacia y de-
p6sito, ademAs de una sala para ani-
males enfermos y otras para aquellos
en cuarentena. El lugar donde viven
los animals esti bajo techo, pero
estA alto y seco, y rodeado de mallas
como una protecci6n contra murcie-
El hospital es operado por la Divi-
si6n de Medicina Veterinaria de la
Direcci6n de Salubridad. Los hono-
rarios para servicios profesionales y
de otra indole son los mismos que
se cobran en el sector Pacifico en
