Mark Birthdays Today

Today is a historic day for the
Isthmus. It marks the 55th anniver-
sary of the opening of the Panama
Canal and is the 450th birthday of
the founding of Panama City.
Appropriate observances are
being held in the Canal Zone and
in Panama to mark the occasion.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will
be held 11 a.m. today to mark the
official opening of the topographic
model of the Panama Canal which
has been installed in the Civil
Affairs Building. The model is
equipped with lights, has tiny ships
in the waterway and includes scale
models of the Thatcher Ferry
Bridge and the townsites along the

Antonio's Hemisfair '68 and at the
International Trade Mart Building
in New Orleans. It was brought to
the Canal Zone and re-assembled
for display in the Civil Affairs
Building. Present at the ribbon cut-
ting will be Canal Zone Gov. W. P.
Leber, the Mayor of Panama City
Eli6cer Alvarado S., and numerous

dignitaries visiting Panama for the
observances in Panama City.
Governor Leber will offer a toast
at his residence later in.the day in
observance of the joint anniversary.
Later this afternoon, the Governor
will be the main speaker at a wreath
laying ceremony at the monument

C.Z. Youth To Study

Selective Service

Fourteen young people named
to the new Canal Zone Advisory
Committee on Selective Service,
whose mission is to study the Selec-
tive Service System, met recently
in the Governor's Board Room
where they received their appoint-
ment certificates from Gov. W. P.
Speaking briefly to the group,

Ivisory Committee W. P. Leber at right and H. I. Perantie, director of
Canal Zone Gov. Selective Service for the Canal Zone, on the left.

Governor Leber cited the need for
such a committee and thanked the
members for accepting the respon-
sibility of serving in the program,
aimed at giving youth a voice in
the draft system.
An orientation was conducted by
H. I. Perantie, Director of Selective
Service for the Canal Zone. Re-
minding the group of the impor-
tance of their assignment, Perantie
noted that the youth advisory com-
mittee is a new approach in Amer-
ican Government. To be meaning-
ful, he said, the committee's work
should be directed toward matters
of policy or broad application,
taking into account interests of the
Nation as a whole.
The committee is composed of
2 women and 12 men, most of
whom are students or apprentices.
Members will have an opportunity
to study all aspects of the Selec-
tive Service System to determine
changes that should be considered.
They will seek answers to the ques-
tion: what's wrong, if anything,
and what to do about it. The com-
mittee's work will be directed
mainly toward questions of general
policy but no special guidelines
have been established for its oper-
The committee will be similar to

increased exposure to disease caus-
ing bacteria. These factors make
it necessary to constantly monitor
the entire hospital environment.
This careful monitoring falls
within the realm of the Infection
Committee which is responsible for
investigation, control, and preven-
tion of infection within the hospital.
In 1958, the American Hospital
Association recommended that all
hospitals should form Infection
Committees. At that time, the hos-
pitals in the Canal Zone were al-
ready years ahead for Gorgas was
a pioneer in the control of hospital
acquired infections and the hos-
pitals here have continued to pro-
gress in this area.
It was through the work of the
Infection Committee that a joint
discovery by both Coco Solo and
Gorgas Hospitals resulted in finding
bacterial contaminatonin na hand
and skin lotion widely used in all
hospitals. Rapid reporting by the
Health Bureau prevented a poten-
tial nation-wide problem in the
United States.
For fiscal year 1969, the Infec-
tion Committee of Gorgas Hospital
reported an overall hospital ac-
quired infection rate of 3.1 percent.
This compares well with hospitals
of similar size within the 'United
States which report a rate of from
14 to 37 percent. Statistics on sur-
gical infections, which are included
in these overall figures, show the
same favorable percentages for the
local hospitals. These figures prove
that an experienced staff and con-
stant surveillance are the keys to
the prevention of hospital acquired
Tremendous strides have been
made in the field of medicine in
recent years and there are now anti-
biotics for the treatment of many
infections. However, some of these
medicines are capable of destroy-
ing the body's natural resistance to
other infections for which there are
no known treatments. Therefore, the
methods of control must continue
to improve. In anticipation of future
needs, Gorgas Hospital recently
appointed a fulltime surveillance
officer who has the responsibility
of working together with all de-
partnents and individuals in bac-
terial environmental control.
The nature of the medical care
institution of necessity brings to-
gether the infected and susceptible.
The protection of both depends on
the effective administration of
clinical skills and the control of the
hospital environment.

The "Klaraborg," 100-year-old converted North Sea freighter passes through
Miraflores Locks en route to Balboa where she later took on fuel and
supplies. The ship is on a round the world voyage and is manned by an
international crew of five; three Swedes, an Irishman, and an Englishman.

Century-Old Schooner

Circling Globe Via PC

Five young adventurers, three
Swedes, an Irishman, and an Eng-
lishman, recently transited the
Canal on a round-the-world voyage
aboard the 100-year-old sailing ship
The ship recently took on fuel,
water, and stores at Pier 18.
Considered by the crew to be the
oldest sailing vessel still roaming
the high seas, the Klaraborg's hull is
made of Swedish pine and oak and
was built in Vanersborg, Sweden,
in 1860. Inside, the wood is Swedish
The ship is 80 feet long and has
a 20-foot beam, plus a tremendous
bowsprit of 36 feet. She was rigged
in the days before tracks and
winches, and all line work was done
by block and tackle. Having 2,400
square feet of sail and two masts,
the Klaraborg is technically a ketch
but has been converted into a
schooner. The engine, seldom used,
is 33 years old, an antique diesel
which is started with compressed
The Klaraborg was used as a
coastal coal carrier until 1965 when
two enterprising and adventurous
young Swedes, Ove Linner, 26, and
Igmar Janum, 25, bought her and
spent $24,000 converting her into
a schooner.
Ove has been at sea since he was
17. He was a 2d engineer aboard
a Swedish freighter prior to buying
the Klaraborg. Igmar is a year
younger than Ove and before taking
a copartnership in the ship worked
as a mens' hairdresser.
The Klaraborg, its two owners,
and an additional crew of three
Swedes set sail on their world
voyage from Gothenborg, Sweden,
in early 1967. In early 1968, they
arrived in Trinidad via stops in
Spain, England, and the Canary
Islands. Having spent all their
savings during the year's voyage to
Trinidad, Ove and Igmar unsuccess-
fully tried to charter the vessel. And
to make things worse, the three
Swedish crewmen departed in Tri-
nidad, leaving only Ove and Igmar.
Ove went ashore to work as an
engineer aboard a Swedish freighter.
while Igmar stayed aboard to care
for the ship.
Fortunately, while working on
the freighter Ove met Haze Richard-
son, manager and part owner of a
resort hotel on the island of Petit
St. Vincent. Asked by Richardson
to charter the Klaraborg to his
hotel's guests, Ove accepted after
consulting with Igmar, and began
6 months of steady work in January
of this year.
While running the charter service
for the hotel, the two partners
picked up three new crew members:
Mike McNeela, an Irishman who

had been working on a charter
yacht in the West Indies; Gina
Turner, a beautiful blonde from
England who came aboard as cook
and who is also a freelance writer;
and Claes Olson, a Swedish friend
who met them in the Grenadine
Having acquired enough money
by early July to continue their
journey, the Klaraborg set sail for
Panama. She arrived in Cristobal
July 28 and transited the Canal the
next day.
The ship left Panama a few days
ago for the next phase of the voyage
which will take them to Hawaii via
Acapulco and San Francisco. Ac-
cording to Ove, from Hawaii, they
will probably set sail for either the
South Pacific or the Orient.

Being distributed today is a spe-
cial, anniversary issue of THE PAN-
AMA CANAL REVIEW which high-
lights articles concerning the his-
tory of the Canal, the men who
dominated the construction era, the
importance of the Canal to various

noted by Gen. G. R. Mather, Com-
mander in Chief, U.S. Southern
Command, in a letter to Governor
Leber. The letter follows:
"Dear Governor Leber:
"Fifty-five years ago, the cen-
turies-old dream of linking the
Atlantic and Pacific Oceans became
a reality when the Ancon made its
historic transit of the Panama Canal.
Since that time the Canal, construc-
tion of which is surely one of the
world's greatest feats of engineer-
ing, has continued to serve all man-
kind as a funnel for world com-
"From the first days of construc-
tion to the present, the Armed
Forces of the United States have
been closely identified with the
Panama Canal. Today, as on Au-
gust 15, 1914, the primary mission
of the Canal Zone-based military
forces is the defense of the Canal.
These forces provide the umbrella
of security under which the dedi-
cated and skilled members of the
Pan Canal team can assure that the
Canal's operation continues unin-
"It is my privilege to express, on
behalf of the military and civilian
personnel of the U.S. Southern
Command, our sincerest congratula-
tions on the occasion of the 55th
anniversary of the opening of the
Panama Canal. Please accept our
best wishes for its continued suc-
cessful operation.

La hazafia realizada por los astro-

Uno de esos lugares, donde todos

Los pacientes estuvieron cerca de

teresante en que se refiere a las dife-
rencias existentes entire las coopera-
tivas de credito de Alaska y las que
existen en la Zona del Canal, segin
la describieron a Gay Leslie, del
personal de ese diario, dos tesoreros
de cooperatives de cr6dito: la Sra.
Judith Varney, de Fairbanks, Alas-
ka, y Herman Watson, de Rainbow
City, Zona del Canal. Ambos se en-
contraban entonces tomando un
curso para personal de cooperatives
de cr6dito que patrocinado por
CUNA Internacional, se dictaba en
esos dias en el Centro de Estudios
de CUNA que funciona en Madi-
son, Wisconsin.
Las mayores diferencias que en-
contraron entire sus dos cooperati-
vas fueron la del Area que cubre
cada cooperative y la de los fines
para que se utilizan los pr6stamos.
En Crist6bal, los prestamos son
para comprar autos, para educa-
ci6n, para muebles, algunos para
comprar casa y otros, para conso-
lidar deudas.
En Alaska, ademAs de ello, los
pr6stamos sirven para comprar autos
propios para nieve, para financial
cacerias de alce y para comprar
combustible para el inviemo.
Para ir de Barrow a Fairbanks y
a Juneau, en Alaska, se necesitan
4 horas en el mis rapido avi6n a

Alaska es tremendamente extenso,

Camas Modelo

Hay en Suecia

En Suecia, dos hombres de cada
tres y una de cada 25 mujeres duer-
men en camas demasiado cortas
para ellos. Es lo que demostrd una
investigation llevada a cabo por el
Institute de Standards de Suecia,
resultando en la adopci6n de un
sistema de medidas models para
las camas. El nuevo modelo de las
camas es de 2.10 m. de largo, 15
cm. mids que antes.
Los suecos son sumamente altos.
Actualmente, alrededor del 40 por
ciento de los hombres adults mide
rods de 1.79 m. y mds del 3 por
ciento pasa de 1.90 m.

in6til. Ha puesto a miles de esposas

superficie de 553 millas cuadradas
y, para ir de un extreme a otro, en
un ferrocarril que tiene mis de 110
afios de existencia, s61o hay que
recorrer 47 millas.
Otra de las grandes diferencias
que existen entire las Areas que cu-
bren las dos cooperatives es el
clima. Mientras que el clima de la
Zona del Canal es moderado, y s61o
hay dos estaciones, la Iluviosa y la
seca, en Alaska se presentan tre-
mendos extremes: en invierno, la
temperature baja a 63 grades bajo

Cooperativa de Cr6ditos de Crist6-

"Aqui en PanamA, nos quejamos a
veces de que Ilueve much o hace
much calor. Mi opinion personal
es que estamos much mejor que
en otros paises donde en ocasiones
uno se muere de frio y otras, de
much mas calor que el que hace

Un Viejo Buque de Vela

Transit por el Canal

Cinco j6venes aventureros, tres
de ellos suecos, un irland6s y un
ingles, transitaron el Canal recien-
temente en un viaje alrededor del
mundo, a bordo de un buque de
vela construido hace 100 afios, el
El buque tom6 combustible, agua
y provisions en el Muelle 18. Su
tripulaci6n cree que el Klaraborg
es el buque de vela mas viejo que
todavia navega en alta mar. El bu-
que estA hecho de pino y roble de
Suecia y fue construido en 1860
en Vanersborg, Suecia. El madera-
men interno es de cedro sueco.
La nave tiene 80 pies de largo y
una manga de 20 pies, aparte de
un tremendo baupr6s de 36 pies
de largo. Habiendo sido equipada
en los dias en que todavia no habia
rieles y gruias todo el trabajo de
cordeleria fue hecho a base de po-
leas. Con 2.400 pies cuadrados de
velamen y dos mastiles, el Klaraborg
es tecnicamente un queche, pero
fue convertido en una goleta. La
maquina, que es usada muy raras
veces, tiene 33 afios y es un antiguo
motor diesel que comenz6 con aire
El Klaraborg fue usado como
transportador costero de carb6n
hasta 1965, cuando dos j6venes sue-
cos emprendedores y aventureros,
Ove Linner, de 26 ailos, e Igmar
Janum, de 25, lo compraron y gas-
taron $24.000 en convertirlo en
Ove ha estado en el mar desde
que tenia 17 afios. Fue segundo
maquinista a bordo de un carguero
succo antes de colmprar el Klarahorg.
Iglnar, antes de convertirse en due-
io del buque trabajaba como peliu-
quero de hombres.
El Klaraborg, sus dos duefios y
una tripulaci6n adicional de tres
suecos se hicieron a la vela en sui
viaje alrededor del mundo desde
Gothenborg, Succia, a principios de
1967. A principios de 1968 Ilegaron

a Trinidad, despues de haber hecho
escalas en Espafia, Inglaterra y las
Islas Canarias. Habiendo gastado
todos sus ahorros durante el viaje
de un afio hasta Trinidad, Ove e
Igmar trataron sin 6xito, de conse-
guir alguien que les fletara el vele-
ro. Y, para poner las cosas peor,
los tres tripulantes suecos los aban-
donaron en Trinidad, dejAndolos
solos. Ove consigui6 trabajo como
maquinista en un carguero sueco,
mientras que Igmar permaneci6 a
bordo cuidando la embarcaci6n.
Afortunadamente, mientras tra-
bajaba en el carguero Ove conoci6
a Haze Richardson, gerente y co-
propietario de un hotel de lujo en
la isla Petit St. Vincent. Habi6ndole
solicitado Richardson que le alqui-
lara el Klaraborg para que lo utili-
zaran los huespedes de su hotel,
Ove acept6 luego de consultar con
Igmar y comenzaron 6 meses de
trabajo fijo en enero de este afio.
Mientras trabajaban la embarca-
ci6n para el hotel, los dos socios
consiguieron otros tres tripulantes:
Mike McNeela, irland6s que habia
trabajado a bordo de un yate en
las Indias Occidentales; Gina Tur-
ner, una bella rubia inglesa, que
subi6 a bordo en calidad de coci-
nera y que tambi6n es escritora, y
Claes Olson, un amigo sueco al
que encontraron en las Islas Gra-
Para principios de julio habian
conseguido suficiente dinero, asi
que para continuar su viaje, el
Klaraborg se hizo a la vela hacia
PanamA. Lleg6 a Crist6bal el 28
de julio v transit el Canal al dia
La nave parti6 de Panami hace
algunos dias en la siguiente fase de
si viaje que la llcvarA a Hawaii,
por l a vi de Acapulco y San Fran-
cisco. De actuerdo con Ove, de
Ilawaii probablemente pondrAn
proa hacia el Pacifico del Str o
hacia el Oriente, o hacia done los
Ilevcn los vientos del miar.
