United Fund Gets Rights

To "Man OF La Mancha"

The Canal Zone United Fund has
obtained the rights to produce the
award-winning musical "Man Of
La Mancha," it was announced
today by Paul Runnestrand, Execu-
tive Director of the United Fund.
This. is the first time that a cur-
rent running Broadway musical hit
will be presented by the United
Fund. Runnestrand also announced
the naming of Bruce Quinn as di-
rector and producer of the New
York Drama Critic Award musical.
"Man Of La Mancha" is based
on a portion of Spanish author
Miguel de Cervantes' life inter-
woven with his literary masterpiece
"Don Quixote." In the musical ver-
sion, written by Dale Wasserman,
Cervantes is imprisoned during the
Spanish Inquisition, and defends
his principles before the prisoners
who attempt to possess his worldly
goods. It is in "Man Of La Man-
cha" that the actor in the dual role
of Cervantes/Quixote sings "The
Impossible Dream," a song which
is considered one of the most stir-
ring statements of poetry ever
written expressing man's purpose
and ultimate objectives in life. The
music for "Man Of La Mancha" is
composed by Mitch Leigh with
lyrics by Joe Darion.
The cast for "La Mancha" will
be the smallest cast ever assembled
for a United Fund production. Only
22 roles are available: six females
and 16 males. In addition to the
dual role of Cervantes/Quixote,
other major roles are those of
Man servant/Sancho Panza; Al-
donza/Dulcinea, the Governor,
Duke, Antonia, Padre, the House-
keeper, and Dr. Sans6n Carrasco.
Tryout dates will be set for early
June to offer vacationing students
an opportunity to participate in the
production. Production dates are set
for early August.
"Man Of La Mancha" will be

Retiring Soon?

Canal Retirees

Provide Advice
Where to live following retire-
ment is a question that looms large
with Canal employees as they
approach the time when they must
leave the Canal Zone. Other deci-
sions that must be made include
such things as whether to buy or
rent a house, what type housing
-apartment, mobile home, or
house-and what to do with spare
In an effort to find out how others
have coped with these problems,
the Personnel Bureau mailed ques-
tionaires to 1,750 former employees.
Some of the 790 answers that came
in from all over the United States
and several foreign countries should
be helpful to others now facing
these decisions. Their suggestions
and comments are included in a
story that appears on pages 3 and 4.

The Dredging Division's new der-
rick barge U.S. Goliath was chris-
tened last week by Mrs. Julian S.
Hearne, wife of the Chief of the
Dredging Division, in a ceremony
held at the dock in Gamboa.
A bottle of champagne was
smashed over the prow of the barge
by Mrs. Hearne in the presence of
Gov. W. P. Leber, her husband,
officials from the Dredging Division
and various other units and bureaus.
The new barge, which replaces
the smaller derrick barge No. 157,
was built in Manitowoc, Wis., by
the Bay Shipbuilding Corp. to Pan-
ama Canal specifications at a total
cost of $665,000. It was towed from

By Emily J. Price

Graham Greene has written a
comic novel Travels with My Aunt
which is sure to be compared with
"Auntie Maine." The quiet-living
young hero is pulled from his placid
existence by his energetic and
thoroughly "lmod" aunt. It's a sur-
prising sort of book and reactions
will be mixed.
The year 1941 was a memorable
year, mostly bad memories. But
there was one happy and glorious
thing to remember, the lanky center-
fielder of the New York Yankees
stepping up to the plate in 56 con-
secutive games and making 91 safe
hits, 15 of them home runs, and
leading his team to the pennant and
the world championship. The whole
story is told by Al Silverman in
Joe DiMaggio; the Golden Year
Mary, Queen of Scots by Antonia
Fraser is a sympathetic and warmly
human biography of one of the
most controversial women in his-
tory. There has not been a full
biograplhy of Mary Stuart since 1905
and this book takes into account
the research into the 16th century
done in the last 50 years. This is
a fascinating book about a woman
whose charm captivated even her
During the Depression, M. F. K.
Fisher wrote a happy sort of book
about eating with no money called
"How To Cook A Wolf." Mrs.

Page 2

Fisher's taste is decidedly more ex-
pensive now but her gay wiay with
words remains. With Bold Knife
and Fork is a witty, highly personal
and informative book which will
please everyone who likes to cook.
The Shivering Sands by Victoria
Holt is a good Gothic novel, a Imys-
terv story in a period setting. This
has an appropriately mysterious
locale, Roman ruins on the English
coast and the characters, especially
the heroine, are very clear cut and
appealing. The spooky adventures
are well done.

From Poland to Panama

Via U.S., Points South

Service in the armed forces of
three nations is quite a record for
any man. But for Max Nissenbaum,
a security guard at Miraflores
Locks, recollection of serving under
three flags brings back fondc mem-
ories of his youth.
The former immigrant from
Poland, and now U.S. citizen, has
been employed at the locks since
1965 shortly after his retirement
from the U.S. Air Force where he
served 22 years. He also had mil-
itary service with the Polish in-
fantry and the Ecuadorean cavalry.
Born in Janow, Poland, one of
four children, Nissenbaum was in
his teens when the family decided
to emigrate to the United States.
Before he could leave with his fam-
ily, however, he was conscripted
into the Polish Army. He served as
an infantry soldier at various posts
in the Danzig area until his military
commitment was completed and
then set out to join his family.
He left from the Port of Cher-
bourg, France, on a British ship
bound for Argentina, a little off
course but he figured it was a step
closer to his destination. When he
arrived in Buenos Aires, he went to
work as a painter almost immedia-
tely as the money his mother had
sent him was about all gone. Since
he spoke only Polish, this added to
his problems. So he decided to go
to night school and learn Spanish.
This he did and now speaks it
fluently, besides English and Cer-
While reading the newspapers
one day in 1924 he noticed that
several newspapers were sponsoring
a walking expedition to the United
States and were looking for four
volunteers. Nissenbaum and three
Argentines were soon on their way
treking through the pampas of Ar-
gentina and over mountains in Chile
and Peru. When they reached
Ecuador 2 years later, the adven-
turous spirit of the pedestrians had
waned somewhat. They decided to
give up the walking expedition and
went their separate ways.
Young Nissenbaum went imme-
diately to the nearest U.S. Con-
sulate to apply for a United States
visa. When he was told it would
take from 2 to 3 years to obtain the
visa, he enlisted in the Ecuadorean
cavalry for a year and was assigned
as a mounted police in Guayaquil.
When the year was up, he signed
up as a seaman on a sailboat bound
for Colombia stopping at Tumaco
and then Buenaventura. Here, en-
couraged by his experience as a sea-
man, he got himself a job as a crew
member on a British ship bound for
New York. Here at last, he was
permitted to enter the country and
was reunited with his family.
In 1942, he was drafted into lthe
U.S. Air Force and after receiving
basic training at Scott AFB in
Illinois, he was transferred to Kelly
Field in Texas, where he attended
control tower operators school.
Then he was transferred to Sioux
Falls, S. Dak., and it was there in
1943 that he became a U.S. citizen.
During his Air Force career, Nis-
senbaum served in the South Pa-
cific, Hawaii, Korea, and Okinawa.
From 1953 to 1957, he was chief
air traffic control instructor at the
USAF School for Latin America.
In May 1963, he returned to the
Isthmus as a bilingual control tower
operator with Detachment 5.
Nissenbaum, who retired as a
master sergeant, received the fol-
lowing decorations: World War II
Victory Medal, American Campaign
Medal, Philippine Liberation Rib-
bon with 3 service stars, Korean
Service Medal with 1 Bronze serv-
ice star, United Nations Service

Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign
Medal, National Defense Service
Medal, Air Force Longevity Service
Award Ribbon with 4 Oak Leaf
Clusters, Cood Conduct Medal with
1 Silver Loop, and Republic of
Korea Unit Citation.

Tailgating Is

Major Cause

Of Accidents
A major cause of automobile acci-
dents in the Canal Zone is what
motorists call "tailgating," or fol-
lowing too closely to another auto,
according to the Police Division.
The solution is a simple one, but
not often heeded by many local
drivers. Frequently a driver in a
following car does not allow him-
self sufficient distance between his
auto and the one he is behind.
A sudden stop or turn invariably re-
sults in a collision.
A good rule to follow is to allow
at least one car length (20 feet) of
space between your car and the car
ahead for each 10 miles an hour.

Public inspection of six of the
new family apartments built on the
third floor of the former section C
of Gorgas Hospital will be held
tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and the same hours again Monday.
The six apartments to be open for
inspection represent each of the six
floor plans available among the 39
apartments recently completed at
Visitors are requested to use the
newly constructed open parking
area at the south end of the build-
ing. Part of this area will be reserved
later for occupants of the building.
The new apartments are adver-
tised on the quarters vacancy bul-
letin published February 25 and
will be assigned on a service credit
basis to the senior applicant whose
requests are on file as of 1 p.m.,
March :3.

"Mom won't let me have a dog,"
complained the little boy to his
friend. "What should I do?"
"Tell her you want a baby
brother," advised his friend. "You'll
get your clog real fast."

Voices of Experience Give

Views on Retirement Living

A warm climate, part-time work,
and other Panama Canal people in
the area seem to be the ideal con-
ditions for the happiness of most
Canal retirees, according to the
answers received on a questionnaire
sent out recently by the Personnel
In an effort to gain information
that may be of help to future re-
tirees, the Retirement Counselor of
the Personnel Bureau mailed ques-
tionnaires to 1,750 former em-
ployees. Answers came in from 790
people living all over the United
States and in several foreign coun-
One of the main questions con-
cerned the choice of a place to live
following retirement. "Choose an
area with a climate similar to that
of the Canal Zone," was the recom-
mendation of 84 percent of those
answering the questionnaire. Most
felt that adjusting to a cold winter
was very difficult and suggested
places in the south and southwestern
parts of the United States with
Florida and southern California as
the favorite spots.
The problems of shoveling snow,
coping with winter driving condi-
tions, the expense of heating a
house, or buying heavy clothing
were listed among the disadvantages
of living where the winters are cold
and long.
There were a few, however, who
did not go along with the advocates
of a warm climate. One very active
retiree wrote, "Go north, go to work
outside, forget about being from a
tropical climate. The change will
do you a world of good."
Another said that it seemed to
him that the people he visited in
North Carolina were in better health
and more alert than those in Florida.
Others who settled in New Mexico
said, "We have found that the cold
weather does not affect us adversely
in the least. We like the changing
seasons." While yet another said,
"I don't like cold weather but find
the health giving effects are so
pronounced that retired people
should try to get a few months of
freezing weather every year."
For the most part, however, long
time tropic dwellers seek a climate
similar to what they are used to and
quite a large number of those who
settle in colder places relocate in
southern Florida, Arizona, or Cal-
Those answering the question-

Mr. and Mrs. Edmund R. MacVittie, of Ancon, tour Sun City, Ariz., where
they plan to live following retirement. The MacVitties agree with the Canal
retirees, who in answer, to a recent questionnaire sent out by the Personnel
Bureau, recommended that employees visit and learn all about the areas
where they plan to retire. MacVittie is chief of the Architectural Branch
of the Engineering Division.

naire had mixed feelings on whether
to rent or buy a house or apartment
but the vast majority agreed that
"if you plan to buy a house, rent
for at least 6 months to determine
whether or not you like the area."
Others suggested using vacations
before retirement to visit a number
of areas and learn as much as possi-
ble about them before choosing a
retirement site.
Many emphasized the expense of
moving if you change your mind
concerning the initial choice and
also the problem of disposing of a
house if you have already bought
one. The importance of checking on
local taxes before making a final
decision was mentioned and one
person said that the choice of a
town should not be determined by
where one's children live because,

Cristobal High School. La Rue was formerly stationed in the Canal Zone.
His wife, Susan and three sons live in Houston, Tex. Larry is planning
to return to his studies at the University of Houston upon completion of
his tour of duty in September of this year.

as she put it, "They move around
too much."
Most people recommend living in
a city under 50,000 population
which has adequate medical facil-
ities and a reliable public transpor-
tation system. Increased age and
disability may prevent one from
being able to continue driving a
car. Also pointed out was the im-
portance of selecting a town where
it is safe to go out at night. Several
mentioned the number of towns
and large metropolitan areas where
it is no longer considered safe to
venture out after dark.
Discussing house buying, people
warned of high pressure salesmen
pointing out that "long residence in
the Canal Zone tends to make
people vulnerable to high pressure
sales practices."
The choice of a house or apart-
ment is generally influenced by the
state of the retiree's health, his
hobbies, and special interests. Sonhi
1'sted the advantages of owning a
home as long as one is able to do
the yard and maintenance work.
Mobile home owners who an-
swered the questionnaire reported
they had found this an economical
and satisfactory answer to their
housing problem, and suggested
that others nearing retirement might
want to check into this as a possi-
Get involved in the life of the
community wherever you decide to
live \was a theme that ran through
many of the replies to the question-
naires. Part-time or full-time work,
hobbies, charity work, and clubs
were recommended. One added,
"Don't sneer at Senior Citizen clubs.
They can be a lot of fun."
Others felt a part-time job not
only gave them an interest but the
extra money was a welcome supple-
ment to retirement pay. A number
of employees have gone into full-
time jobs and find working, some-
times at a completely different type
of job from their Canal Zone work,

February 27, 1970

On his way up the side of a Norwegian freighter to measure her for pay-
ment of tolls is Gilbert Smith, PanCanal's first Panamanian admeasurer.

Panamanian Is Trained

As PanCanal
Success is the name of the game
for a group of young Panamanians
employed in the Marine Bureau who
are moving up in their professions.
Gilbert Smith, for example, is
the first Panamanian to be trained
to take over as a Panama Canal ad-
measurer. He has been an ad-
measurer assistant for the past 2
years and, like other young trainees,
has been instructed in acting also
as boarding officer and inspector.
The job of admeasurer requires a
variety of skills including climbing
up a ship's often unsteady Jacob's
ladder to board the vessel for meas-
urement purposes. It requires a
variety of skills plus a knowledge
of mathematics.
A 1952 graduate of Balboa High
School, Smith took engineering and
business courses in Canal Zone Col-
lege and began working with the
Canal in 1963 as a wage and classi-
fication analyst in the Personnel
Bureau. He later transferred to the
Marine Bureau as an admeasurer
trainee and recently was promoted
to admeasurer assistant.
One other young Panamanian
who is now classified as admeasurer
aide is Roy McLenan. Three cooper-
ative education trainees, who will
join the office when they complete
their studies, are Gabriel Branca,
Benito Almengor, and Jos6 Melgar.
McLenan was born in Costa Rica
and attended school in Colon. He
is a graduate of the University of
Panama and went to Franklin and
Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa.

Judge Deming
(Continued from p. 1)
Before leaving the Isthmus,
Judge Deming said he had enjoyed
his years of residence in the Canal
Zone and wished to express his
gratitude for the cooperation he had
received from the public, the Canal
Zone police, his fellow workers and
the press.
Judge Deming will be succeeded
in June by Col. John Baker, upon
his retirement from the U.S. Army.
During the time between the
departure from the Canal Zone of
Judge Deming and the arrival of
Baker, Carl A. Widell, who has
acted as relief magistrate in the
Canal Zone, will be temporary
Magistrate in Balboa.

He joined the admeasurer's office in
Cristobal in 1968 and became an
admeasurer aide in July 1969.
Melgar is a graduate of the Pa-
raiso High School in the Canal Zone
and the University of Panama. He
was employed in Panama before
joining the Panama Canal in 1968.
Branca attended the Instituto
Justo Arosemena in Panama and is
now a student in the University of
Panama. He also spent a year as a
student assistant with the Canal
Zone Guide Service. When he grad-
uates from the university, he hopes
to become a permanent member of
the admeasurement staff.
Almengor is in the Cristobal office
of admeasurement. He was born in
Chiriqui Province, was graduated
from St. Benedict's College in At-
chinson, Kans., with a bachelor of
science degree in biology and
chemistry. He joined the Canal or-
ganization in December 1969 as a
cooperative education trainee.

(Continued from p. 3)
a stimulating experience. One man,
who retired due to disability, said,
"If you can't continue with physical
work, find something mental but
keep busy." Other advice was that
those who wish to work full-time
should settle in an industrial rather
than a retirement area.
Some retirees have turned their
hobbies into full-time jobs. One
who painted as a hobby now oper-
ates an art gallery and another who
grew orchids, is teaching a course
on the subject.
The retired employees were asked
if they felt that a retirement coun-
seling program would have helped
them. Sixty-seven percent felt that
it would have helped; 26 percent
that it would not have; and 7 per-
cent were undecided.
There are a number of employees
who chose to live in the Republic
of Panama and an often expressed
wish included in the remarks on
the questionnaires was for an area
either in or adjacent to the Canal
Zone set up as a retirement area
for Canal retirees. Many have chil-
dren and relatives working in the
Canal Zone and would like to be
near them.

The Goliath has a crane with a
lifting capacity of 100 tons and uses
a clam shell bucket with an 8 cubic
yard capacity. It also can operate a
pile driver with its diesel electric
power plant. It has an all welded
steel hull with a length of 105 feet
and a beam of 50 feet. It will be
used to load and unload ships as
well as a clamshell dredge, for pile
driving and work on the harbor
The old derrick barge, which the
new barge replaces, was built in
1928 by the former Mechanical
Division of the Panama Canal.

All men make fools of themselves
at one time or another.
Unfortunately, that one time or
another comes up too frequently.
But, then, what can you expect
from men?

Max Nissenbaum Sirvi6 en

Los Ejercitos de Tres Paises

f 4

Cruzando sobre una de las compuertas de las Esclusas de Miraflores aparece
Max Nissenbaum, el guardia de seguridad de las esclusas, que sirvi6 en
los ej6rcitos de tres naciones.

Servir en los ejrcitos de tres na-
ciones es algo que recuerda con
much carifio un inmigrante judio
de Polonia, que hoy en dia es guar-
dia de seguridad en las Esclusas de
Es Max Nissenbaum, quien labo-
ra en las esclusas desde junio de
1965, poco despu6s de haberse ju-
bilado en la Fuerza A6rea de los
Estados Unidos, al cabo de 22 afios
de servicio.
Nissenbaum sirvi6 en el ej6rcito
polaco, en el de Ecuador y en la
Fuerza A6rea de los Estados Uni-
Nacido en Janow, Polonia, y uno
de una familiar de cuatro hijos, es-
taba en sus afios de adolescent
cuando su familiar decidi6 emigrar
a los Estados Unidos. Max estaba
listo para aconpaniarla cuando la
suerte cambi6 sus planes, ya que fue
reclutado por el ejercito polaco. Sir-
vi6 como soldado de infanteria en
various campamentos en el Area de
Danzig hasta que cumpli6 con los
requisites militares un afio despu6s.
Para entonces los otros miem-
bros de su familiar se habian radi-
cado en Estados Unidos y decidi6
unirse a ellos. Con una buena
suma de dinero que le envi6 su
madre y much ambici6n, parti6

de Polonia hacia Cherbourg en
Francia, en donde logr6 pasaje
en un navio britfnico que iba para
la Argentina, un sitio algo alejado
de su destiny, pero que lo tendria
mAs cerca de los Estados Unidos.
Cuando arrib6 a Buenos Aires,
sus fondos se habian agotado, pero
pronto consigui6 un empleo como
pintor. Como s61o hablaba polaco.
lo cual le causaba problems, puso
remedio a la situaci6n asistiendo a
una escuela nocturna de espafiol,
idioma que hoy habla con soltura,
ademais del ingles y el aleman.
Max se mantenia siempre al dia
leyendo los avisos en los peri6dicos
y un dia, en 1924, se dio cuenta de
que various peri6dicos estaban aus-
piciando una expedici6n a pie hacia
los Estados Unidos y solicitaban
cuatro j6venes voluntarios. Max fue
uno de los seleccionados. Los otros
eran argentinos.
Cuando el grupo lleg6 al Ecua-
dor 2 afios mais tarde, despues de
caminar a trav6s de Argentina, Chile
y Per'i, su espiritu aventurero habia
decaido much. Decidieron aban-
donar la expedici6n y pronto se

Herman Watson, tesorero y gerente de la Cooperativa Federal de Credito
de Crist6bal (de pie), observa el audito que efect6an los auditors del
Bur6 de Cooperativas Federales de Cr6dito, Paul Atkins, a la derecha, y

dijo que podria tomar de 2 a 3 anios
adquirir una visa para entrar a los
Estados Unidos.
Como una alternative ingres6
a la clballeria del Ej6rcito del
Ecuador, en donde estuvo du-
rante todo un afio. Aunque no
tenia experiencia como jinete,
pronto estuvo como policia mon-
tado en Guayaquil, lo cual le
gust6 bastante.
Pero su ambici6n era llegar a
Estados Unidos y cuando recibi6
su baja de la caballeria, se enrol6
como marinero en un buque de vela
que iba para Colombia. Despu6s de
varias semanas en mar tranquilo, el
barco lleg6 a Tumaco y luego a
Animado por la experiencia ga-
nada en su "prolongado" viaje, Max
no perdi6 tiempo en enrolarse como
miembro de la tripulaci6n a bordo
de un vapor britinico que iba para
Nueva York. Alli se le concedi6 el
ptrmiso necesario para entrar al
pais y unirse a su familiar.
Los militares volvieron a lla-
marlo en 1942 cuando Max fue
reclutado en la Aviaci6n del EjBr-
cito de Estados Unidos. Despues
de terminar un adiestramiento bi-
sico en la Base de la Fuerza A6rea
en Scott, Illinois, fue enviado a
Kelly Field en Texas, para asis-
tir a la escuela de operarios de
torres de control. MAs tarde fue
trasladado a Sioux Falls, Dakota
del Sur, y fue all en 1943 cuan-
do se convirti6 en ciudadano de
los Estados Unidos.
Durante sus afios en la Fuerza
Area estuvo en el Pacifico Sur,
Hawai, Corea y Okinawa. De 1953
a 1957 estuvo por primera vez en
Panama como instructor jefe en el
control de tr6fico a6reo en la Es-
cuela de la Fuerza A6rea de los
Estados Unidos para la Am6rica
Latina. En mayo de 1963 volvi6 al
Istmo como operario bilingiie de
torre de control con el Destaca-
mento 5.

porcionarnos fotografias de cuando
estuvo en la caballeria del Ecuador,
pero nos inform que perdi6 todos
sus papeles cuando viaj6 a Colom-

ocasiones, recibiendo la Medalla de
la Victoria de la II Guerra Mundial,
la Medalla de Campafia America-

dalla Coreana de Servicio con una
estrella de servicio de bronce, la
Medalla de Servicio de las Nacio-

Cinta de Servicio de Longevidad
de la Fuerza A6rea con 4 Ramos de
Hojas de Roble, la Medalla de Bue-

los Estados Unidos.

Hay que Mantener

La Distancia Entre

Los Automoviles
Una de las causes principles de
accidents automovilisticos en la
Zona del Canal es aquella de que
los automovilistas siguen muy de
cerca a los otros autolmvilcs, de
acuerdo con la Division de Policia.
La soluci6n es muy simple, pero
no es observada por mnuchos con-
ductores locales. A menudo un
conductor en un auto que sigue no
guard suficiente distancia entire su
aulomn6vil y el que estti delante.
Una parada o una vuelta repentina
resiltan invariablemente en una
Una buena regla a seguir es per-
initir por lo menos el largo de un
auto (20 pies) de espacio entire su

Glenda Bonamico, la escultural
argentinita ayudante estudiantil en
el Ramo de Seguridad, tiene ahora
un recuerdo de los astronauts de la
Apolo 12 que dice que guardari
toda su vida. Resulta que el pasado
jueves 19 de febrero, cuando sali6
del trabajo fue, como de costumbre
a sus classes en la Universidad Santa
Maria La Antigua, frente al Parque
de La Independencia, en PanamA.
Cuando escuch6 las sirenas de las
motocicletas que precedian la cara-
vana de autos de los astronauts,
baj6 al parque, donde los astronau-
tas colocaban ofrendas florales al
pie de los monumentos a los pr6ce-
res de la Independencia de PanamA.
Tenia a mano un cartapacio de los
que usa en la escuela y un boligrafo
y se detuvo al lado del auto de los
astronauts. Cuando estos regresa-
ban al vehiculo, Brenda le entreg6
el cartapacio y el boligrafo a Alan
L. Bean quien se lo autografi6 y lo
pas6 a Charles Conrad, Jr., Aste a su
vez, lo autografi6 y lo entreg6 a
Richard Gordon, quien tambiin lo
firm y, con una sonrisa, se lo en-
treg6 a Glenda. Tan orgullosa esta
Clenda con su cartapacio autogra-
fiado por los astronauts, que las
malas lenguas dicen que hasta
"cobra" por ensefiarlo.
El sibado 21 de febrero, a las
8 p.m., tuvo lugar en PanamA Viejo
el Homenaje Nacional al gran com-
positor panamefio Ricardo FAbrega,
author de PanamA Viejo y Taboga,
entire otras composiciones conocidas
en el mundo entero. El homenaje
fue patrocinado por el Instituto
Panamefio de Turismo y la Direc-
ci6n Nacional de Cultura. Pero lo
que muchos no saben es que la idea

part6 de un empleado del Canal
de Panami, Gordon E. Thiel, sefia-
lero de la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n,
muy conocido y apreciado en Pana-
mi. La idea fue acogida calurosa-
mente por el IPAT.

Recientemente, para ser mas
exactos, el mi6rcoles de la semana
pasada, vimos a Sylvester D. Cal-
lender, Coordinador de Relaciones
de las Comunidades Latinoamerica-
nas en la Oficina del Gobernador,
entrar a las oficinas de la Agencia
para el Desarrollo Internacional de
los Estados Unidos. Alli consigui6
promesas de ayuda tecnica para la
Cooperativa de Consumo del Local
900. Buenas noticias para los em-
pleados del Canal de PanamA ique
pertenecen a esa cooperative.

"Bill" De La Mater,de la-Oficina
de Planificaci6n y director del equi-
po Abernathy de la Liga de Soft-
bol de Lanzamiento Lento del Pa-
cifico, muy triste en estos dias, a
pesar de tener a su equipo en el
commando, porque esta perdiendo
may buenos jugadores.
Por otra par.te, los pupilos de
"Charlie" McArthur, director del
White Horse, que va en el iltimo
lugar, jurando que ganarin la se-
gunda vuelta y se enfrentarin al
Abernathy en la series final. El mar-
tes 17, los del White Horse explota-
ron dindole una paliza al Schlitz,
por 16 a 3, y demostrando que muy
bien pueden hacer realidad sus de-
seos. Tienen muy buenos bateado-
res, como Jos6 "Cocoy" Tufi6n (que
cada vez que juega tiene que nane-
jar miis de 100 millas, pues reside
en el AtlAntico) y Armando Puente.

Ser Honrado Consigo Mismo

SI EL JEFE DE SECGUIDAD no puede ser honrado consigo mismo acerca
de las medidas de prevencion de accidents que trata de imponer, c6mo va
a esperar que sus subordinados las acepten y apliquen en su trabajo diario.
La honradez personal se manifiesta de muchas fonnas. Es la sinceridad
en lo que se hace o se dice. Significa no aceptar ciertas condiciones si
honradamente se piensa que dejan much que desear. La aceptaci6n del
status quo, ya sea por temor a offender a otros, quizas en un escalaf6n su-
perior, o por falta de caracter, no es excusa. Si el supervisor cree sincera-
mente que algo necesita remediarse o cambiarse, debe manifestarlo v tomar
cartas en el asunto. Cuando l6 acepta algo que no le satisface a conciencia,
crlca una base falsa para el desenvolvimiento eficaz de sus actividades.
Hace un trabajo a medias.
El hecho de no aceptar una situaci6n "porque esa no es mi responsabi-
lidad" es una evasiva nada mais. El es responsible de todas maneras, v la
realidad es que si Ilega a ocurrir un accident a casa de esa situaci6n, lo
mas probable es que alguien de arriba lo llame a capitulo y etntonces, de
nada le valdra decir "vo lo sabia, pero crei que no era mi responsabilidad".
Si al pasar junto a iuna miiquiia, cl supervisor nota tqute ino tiee los
resguardos que correspondent, si cs lhor11 ado consigo mismno, IllmarlA al tra-
lbajador y le indicara cuilcs son los quell debe poncr. Si por el contrario, sc
incoge dte hombros v' dice "'a sc loi he dicho mil veces, 6l lo sabl tan bicn
colno yo v si no quiere pr'otcgtrse, allA 'Cl", no es honrado colsifo miismo,
pues el sabe que el trabajador sc( crea una situaci6n de peligro qlue si
deber es hac6rselo very cnxplicarle y convencerlo de (liue ticnc Ique prote-
gerse por su propio bicn.
La verdad es sque el txito del program de Seguridad dpclende' de
quienes tienen que velar por sui c mplimiento. Los jefes de seguridad tielne
que career en el misimo, (n los principios que lo inispiran v rn la formula cn
que se aplica. S61o entonces podran exigirle a los trailhladore's lque sign
siempre los procedimientos de seguridad, por estar conlencidos ((lue es por
su propio bien, no siendo medidas arbitrarias sino el resultado ie la expe-
riencia v de los iltinmos adelantos en prev\enci6n de accidcntes.
Quien cs honrado consigo misiiio lhanl un buien tralbajo de supervising
de la seguridad sin cludir las responsahilidades de sii cargo. (guiaido p(r
esa honradez contribuirit a lat seguridad \ al hicncstar die siu subordinados.
Su honradez lo mantenldri alert contra las irregularidadt s q(juei icn una 11
otra forma pudieran afectar la integridad fisica de sis trabajadores o danios
a la propiedad con pcrdidas para l;i iempresa que lo hIa empleado.
Quien es honrado rccibe siu rccompensa: inla conciencia tranqullila
la satisfacci6n de cumplir con su deber.

hizo inadvertidamente. Habia deja-

Pepe nos dice:

Accion rapida-manejo defensive

que puede ser la causa de accidents y hasta producer la muerte en cualquier
moment de descuido.
Pepe prefiere usar los medios de transport pfblico pero a veces se ve obli-
gado a hacer viajes a grandes distancias en autom6vil.
Recientemente pas6 por una de esas experiencias y nos pidi6 la relataramos
aqui para precaver a otros conductors. Su amigo Alberto Vallejo conducia y
su esposa estaba sentada en el asiento delantero. Pepe iba detras. Eran como las
5 de la mariana y Vallejo habia conducido ya unas dos horas. En ese moment
Pepe not6 que un autom6vil se atravesaba completamente en la carretera a
unos dos kil6metros y zigzagueaba de un lado al otro.
Mientras desaceleraba, Vallejo pens6 que el conductor del autom6vil se
habria quedado dormido y que finalmente despertaria para continuar en una
direcci6n fija. Us6 entonces la bocina para ver si asi lo alertaba. El otro auto-
m6vil sigui6 vacilante hasta que se sali6 de la carretera por el carril de la
izquierda yendo a dar a la secci6n medianera, un poco mis profunda que la
carretera y que no tenia cerca ni sembrados que sirvieran de muro de conten-
ci6n. Al precipitarse por la part mis baja de la medianera, parece que se
despert6 el conductor pues en seguida volvi6 a dirigir el auto hacia el carril
de la izquierda y velozmente desapareci6 en la distancia.
Si Vallejo no hubiera desacelerado tan pronto vio el autom6vil que se le
atravesaba, se hubiera producido un choque. Su actitud defensive hizo que
tomara medidas para proteger su vida y la de los demls ocupantes del auto
y gracias a eso le dio tiempo al conductor del otro vehiculo para que desper-
tara y se quitara de en medio *
