Citizenship Day To Have

Special Significance

Citizenship Day, September 17,
and Constitution Week, Septem-
ber 17 through 23, will have special
significance in the Canal Zone with
officials from the U.S. Department
of Justice on hand to conduct cit-
izenship hearings and issue cer-
The hearings, held annually since
1966, will be conducted by Andrew
J. Carmichael, Jr., and Harold J.
Neubauer of the U.S. Immigration
Service, from September 15 through
26. Applicants will be notified by
mail from New Orleans as to the
date, time, and place of their hear-
ings, which are held by appoint-
ment only.
The Canal Zone program is ad-
ministered by the Customs Division
of the Civil Affairs Bureau and
Mrs. Lois K. Thomas is available
from 7 a.m. to noon and from 1
p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through
Friday to assist applicants. Mrs.
Thomas' telephone number is
Balboa 4202.
On the Atlantic side of the Isth-
mus, hearings will be held in the
Cristobal Customs Office and on
the Pacific side in Room 105, Build-
ing 5534 (the old Diablo heights
Elementary School) adjacent to the
tennis court on Hains St. These

will be announced at the school.
Students interested in seeing the
film should see their counselors.

Citizenship Day

andi Constitution

The Presidential proclamation
emphasizes that the Constitution is
very much alive today and is not
simply a document in a museum.
It states in part:
"The Constitution of the United
States is often viewed as a revered
document drawn in a far-off time
by a group of exceedingly wise men
we call the Founding Fathers. It
is much more than that. The Cons-
titution is a living set of principles,
created during a hot Philadelphia
summer in 1787 by men who were
often passionate in their convictions
and always jealous of the basic
rights which had been secured by
the American Revolution. Th;s
Constitution is not a museum piece,
but something as strong and as
proud and as passionately alive
today as were the men who created
it almost 200 years ago.
"As the foundation of ou" national
life, the Constitutiou demands more
than reverence. It demands the kind
of active concern we show to any-
thing we deeply care for. It de-
mands our attention, our under-
standing of its character and of its
fundamental place in our lives. This
view of the Constitiiion will not
allow us to pay honor to the idea
unless we pay attention to the
reality. It calls upon a citizen to not
only be able to demand his rights,
but also to know what they are.
"United States citizenship, then,
is also demanding. But the demands
are more than matched by the bene-
fits. Each citizen can help himself,
his fellow citizens, and his Nation
if he takes some time out of his life
to read and talk an'l think about
the Constitution."
The U.S. Congress, by a joint
resolution on February 29. 1952,

No Employee Cuts

Seen for PanCanal
No reductions in force are ex-
pected for the Panama Canal or-
ganization in complying with a Pres-
idential directive to lower personnel
President Nixon recently asked
for reduced spending by $3.5 billion
and said "the dollar reduction will
be accompanied by a further lower-
ing of the personnel ceilings . .
The U.S. Budget Bureau direc-
tor, in carrying out the President's
directive, has issued June 1970
force ceilings for the Panama Canal
similar to the actual employee force
of the past June.
Total employment for the Pan-
auna Canal organization in June
1969, excluding student assistants
and military, was 15,733. The June
1970 ceiling will be 15,744. Full
time employment in permanent posi-
tions the past June was 14,730 and
the employment ceiling in this
category for next June will be
The Canal organization, however,
is expected to meet its rising work-
load in fiscal year 1970 with vir-
tually no increase in manpower.
Employee increases in areas such
as the Canal Zone schools, which
must he staffed in line with current
student load, will be offset by allow-
rng position vacancies in some lower
priority areas to remain unfilled.

at hard core or habitual offenders,

Governor Leber Honors

18 Retiring Employees

Eighteen Panama Canal em-
ployees, whose Canal service to-
taled to more than 500 years, re-
tired during the month of August.
Those still on the Isthmus attended
a retirement ceremony in the Board
Room of the Administration Build-
ing and were presented retirement
certificates by Canal Zone Gov.
W. P. Leber.
Speaking briefly to the retirees,
Governor Leber thanked them for
their many years of service to the
Canal organization. He remarked
on the recent observance of the
55th anniversary of the Panama
Canal and the remarkable record
it has maintained during those many
years. He mentioned also the open-
ing of the display of the Canal
model which shows the operation
of the waterway. The Governor
noted that the engineers who de-
signed the Canal did a great job
but those who have made it a
success are the employees who for
55 years have made it possible to
put more and more ships through
the Canal.
John Lawrence, a clerk in the
Maintenance Division on the At-
lantic side, with almost 52 years
of Canal service, held top position
in the number of years.
The next highest service record
was held by Christopher N. Lewis,
machine operator in the Industrial
Division, with more than 38 years
of Canal service.
Those who retired from Panama
Canal service, their places of em-
ployment and the positions they
held are as follows:
Jorge E. Aguas, Shift Engineer
(Mechanical), Electrical Division,
Pacific side: 11 years, 8 months.
Jorge C. Caiiizales, Carpenter,
Maintenance Division, Pacific
side: 31 years, 8 months, 18 days.

L. Siders at the Canal Zone Col-

book is in its third printing and has
been widely adopted throughout

Siders also prepared the manu-

of Mathematics Principles, which
he is teaching this semester.

What's in a Name?
Names can be misleading. The
town of Accident, Md., proves the
point. Just how the town came by
its name is not clear, but it's cer-
tainly clear that it has not been
living up to he name lately. For
5 consecutive years the town has
received an award for not having
a single fatal traffic accident.

nificant changes have taken place
in recent years in mathematics cur-
ricula and in the nature and content
of all mathematics courses. This
text is intended to provide students
with a sound and solid foundation
upon which additional instruction
in mathematics may be built."
Siders is beginning his second
year as a faculty member of the
college's Business Administration
Department. Prior to coming to the
Canal Zone, he taught for 8 years
at Merrit College in Oakland, Calif.,
where he specialized in the teaching
of accounting, economics, business,
and general mathematics. He also
taught for 2 years in Frick Junior
High School in Oakland.
In addition to mathematics, Siders
teaches accounting, economics, man-
agement and banking, and credit
principles. He brings practical expe-
rience to his classes having worked
as a cost and general ledger ac-
countant, regional manager for a
gas and electric company, a comp-
troller, sales manager, corporate
secretary and treasurer. A number
of his articles on small business, and
financial and shop management
have appeared in technical journals.
Siders holds a bachelor of science
degree in business administration
from Simpson College, Indianola,
Iowa, and a master of arts in eco-
nomics from Stanford University in
California. He also holds a lifethne

Dr. Clyde Keeler's new book on
the Cuna Indians of San Bias is
called Cuna Indian Art; the Cul-

Bias Islanders. All phases of Cuna
art are described in the authorita-

some in color, show the making
and the use of various objects. The
San Bias "mola" is discussed in de-

derived from Dr. Keeler's 18 years
of study and collection of Cuna

Two air conditioners, each weigh-
ing more than 100 pounds, fell from
second story windows in Canal Zone
quarters recently. A 100-pound air
conditioner, falling from a height of
30 feet, hits the ground with an
impact of 3,000 foot-pounds and
the possibility of causing serious
bodily injury or death is great. In
these incidents, no one was injured
but the residents of the quarters
suffered unnecessary property loss
and inconvenience plus risking
costly legal liability for injury or
To help prevent such accidents,
occupants of quarters should follow
these rules:
1. Apply to the Housing Branch
Manager for clearance before in-
stalling air conditioners. You will be
sent a copy of instructions appli-
cable to vour particular kind of
2. Follow exactly the instructions
provided by the manufacturer. Do
not attempt short cuts.
3. If you hire someone to do the
work, make sure he is qualified to
S do the job correctly.
4. Provide sufficient supports to
compensate for the stress placed on
the air conditioner when it pro-
trudes from either side of a window
or wall opening.
5. Use grade "A" lumber or metal
supports of appropriate size to
fasten the unit to the window frame
or building structure.
6. Nails, bolts, nuts, and screws
must be of sufficient size and com-
position to attach firmly to a per-
manent part of the building. A min-
imum of two thirds of fastening
devices should go into the per-
manent member and all should be
nailed, screwed, or bolted tightly.
7. Defective window sills and
masonarv openings should be re-
paired before beginning the in-
stallation. Rotten or termite-ridden
sills and crumbly masonary will not
hold an air conditioner for long.
8. Make a periodic inspection of
each machine. A good time to do
this is during the required main-
tenance. Test leg and brace sup-
ports. Loose nails should be re-
moved and renailed at new loca-
tions. All screws should be tight-
ened, and worn or rusted metal
fasteners should be replaced. Lock-
type washers should be used to
prevent loosening by continued

chance to the patient and to the
The excellent staff is a prime fac-
tor in the successful operation of
the Blood Bank. As a donor, you
would probably meet Miss Eneida
Siu, the talented medical techno-
logist who is in charge of the Blood
Bank. She is directly responsible
for the many tests and records that
keep the Blood Bank humming.
Ricardo Vallarino, the laboratory
supervisory technologist, is avail-
able for consultation on unusual
problems and is there to assist at
critical times. He also makes sure
techniques, supplies, and reagents
are current.
Dr. Henry M. Bowers, Jr., a man
both dedicated and encyclopedic in
knowledge, is the assistant chief of
the Laboratory Service and is the
pathologist professionally respon-
sible for the Blood Bank.
Conscientious work is a second
important factor in the successful
operation of the Blood Bank. Many
donors and visitors are aware of
the detailed questionnaire, the
blood tests, the blood pressure
measurement, the careful armr prep-
aration, the meticulous attention to
technique, and, of course, the 15-
minute wait after donating blood.
Many of these things are done for
the safety and welfare of the donor
as well as for the recipient.
However, few people see what
happens next. There is further blood
testing to determine the blood type
and Rh factor. The odds are high
that any given donor has either
Type A, Rh posit;\'e, or Type 0,
Rh positive blood, and that the pa-
tient is the same. But odds are not
good enough, and the blood must
be carefully identified.
Another sample is tested for

Dr. Forbes Whiteside, a curator

The units of blood themselves
must be placed within a refrigerator
where the temperature is carefully
regulated and kept close to freez-
ing. Detailed and accurate records
of every test that is run and every
step of the test must he made, as
well as records kept of people who
gave blood, those who received it,
and any suspected reaction.
Records are a third key factor.
Three vears ago the inspector left
several forms recommended for cer-
tain records. This year he brought
a new, improved form-longer and
more detailed. The tests didn't
change, but the paper work did!
The fourth important factor in
the successful operation of the
Blood Bank is the willingness to
keep moving ahead technologically,
the willingness to utilize new tech-
niques. Mentioned above are the
tests for "irregular antibodies." The
technique that had been used
missed an antibody occasionally-
how occasional is one out of 17,000?
The most recent technique has cut
the ratio down to on0e ;n 34,000.
Is it worth it? The answer is
obvious. In the past 8 years there
has been no case of mismatched

All U.S. elementary schools in the Canal Zone will participate in the School
Night for Scouting, Monday, September 22 at 7 p.m. Children and parents
are invited to visit the school nearest their home where they will have an
opportunity to speak with unit leaders, see scouting displays, and register
with the unit of their choice. This also will be a good time for parents or
other adults to volunteer their services. Shown here are Canal Zone Boy
Scouts demonstrating the proper technique for setting up a water source.

de 1968 al 16 de julio de 1969, un
total de 2.582.590 horas-hombre,

Faltando unos 10 dias para com-

octubre de 1967 al 27 de marzo
de 1968.
Para conmemorar la nueva marca,
de 2.582.590 horas-hombre sin
lesi6n causante de incapacidad,
Lester A. Ferguson, Director de
Abastos y Servicios Comunales, en-
treg6 una placa de honor por segu-
ridad a Norman V. Davison, super-

En esta column vamos a men-

enormemente en la producci6n del

dos que prestan servicios en el
Ramo de Artes GrAficas del Canal

Norman B. Davison, Superintendente del Ramo de
Mercadeo de la Direcci6n de Abastos y Servicios Co-
munales, muestra la placa de honor por seguridad que
le fue entregada por Lester A. Ferguson, Director de
Abastos y Servicios Comunales (cuarto de la izquierda,
primera fila), debido a que el Ramo de Mercadeo acu-
mul6 la cantidad record de 2.582.590 horas-hombre sin
lesi6n causante de incapacidad. La ceremonia de entre-
ga tuvo lugar en el teatro de Balboa ante Paul B.
Ficzeri, Jefe Interino del Ramo de Seguridad, altos fun-
cionarios de la Direcci6n y los gerentes de las diferen-
tes unidades del Ramo de Mercadeo. De izquierda a

derecha, primer fila: Jose R. Maravilla, funcionario
de seguridad de la Direcci6n de Abastos y Servicios
Comunales; Raymond P. Laverty, Gerente General de
la Division de Abastos; Norman B. Davison, Lester A.

Otro de los muchachos del Ramo
de Artes GrAficas que cooper en
gran manera con el SPILLWAY es
Fitzgerald Barnes. Es el hombre
que se encarga de los revelados de
fotografia y siempre atiende muy
bien a los que solicitan sus servi-
cios. Muestra de lo much que lo
aprecian sus compafieros son los
diferentes nombres con que lo lla-
man. Unos le dicen "Baldy", otros
lo llaman "Barney", pero nosotros
preferimos llamarlo "Happy", pues
siempre esta con la sonrisa en los
labios, hasta en los moments en
que la cosa se pone color de hor-

Recientemente cometimos un
error al referiros a los ganadores
del concurso de declamaci6n que
tuvo lugar en Paraiso el 22 de agos-
to. El error consisti6 en que omiti-
mos inadvertidamente mencionar el
nombre de la ganadora del tercer
premio de declamaci6n en prima-
ria. Fue la nifia Loretta Grandison,
que fue muy aplaudida por el gran
sentimiento que le dio a su decla-
maci6n. Aprovechamos esta ocasi6n
para felicitar a sus orgullosos
padres Maurice Grandison y Sra.
Luisa de Grandison.

Y ya que hablamos de errors,
en la iltima COCTELERA dijimos
que Jose Maria Castillo, capataz de
los trabajadores que estan dando
los iltimos toques a las nuevas ins-
talaciones sanitarias del Edificio de
Administraci6n en Balboa Heights,
habia dicho que el trabajo termina-
ria a mediados de mes. Bueno, nos
declar6 que eso no es correct, pues
se espera que se terminen a fines
de mes. Aunque la verdad es que
ya falta muy poco. Y el trabajo que
estin haciendo los muchachos es
de primera.

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
que lleg6 la Policia de la Zona del
Canal que complete el rescate.
L6pez narra la experiencia como
lo mis natural y s61o se le nota la
satisfacci6n del deber cumplido.
Manuel Fernando L6pez naci6
en la poblaci6n de Chilibre hace
27 afios. Alli hizo sus studios pri-
marios en la Escuela Tomris Arias
pasando luego a la secundaria en
el Colegio Jos6 Dolores Moscote,
donde s61o pudo Ilegar hasta el
29 afio. "Eramos various hermanos
y yo tuve que empezar a trabajar
para ayudar a la familiar dice para
explicar su decision de dejar los es-
tudios. Afiade "desde entonces tra-
bajo con el Canal de Panaml, aun-
que en la Planta de Abastos Mari-
timos de La Boca empec6 a trabajar
s61o desde el 22 de junior de 1968".
A pesar del corto tiempo que
Ileva de trabajar alli. goza del apre-
cio de sus jefes y de sus compaiie-
ros. L6pez siente enomne agradeci-
miento por su seilora Ang61lica Bo-
nilla de quien dice que ha consti-
tuido su mayor ayuda durante los
afios en que ha vivido con ella.
Tienen cuatro hijos, dos hombres y
dos mujercitas, que van de los 2
a los 7 afios.
Se siente sumamnente satisfecho
de su trabajo con el Canal de Pana-
mia, pues dice que gracias a 61 tiene
su casita propia en Chilibre. Ha-
blando de sus planes para el future
dice que quiere estudiar ingl6s para
desempefiarse mejor en el trabajo y
darle a sus hijos la educaci6n que
61 no pudo conseguir.

La firmeza del carActer no se de-
muestra con los arrebatos violentos,
sino con la paciencia, la tenacidad,
y la consistencia de las convicciones.
