Canal Zone Youth Answer

Call of R.P. Flood Victims

Hundreds of Canal Zone young
people, assisted by adults, answered
the call Saturday to help collect
items from Canal Zone homes for
distribution to victims of the recent
floods in western Panama.
The program was a Canal Zone
Youth Council project which started
at about 9 a.m. and finished after 6
p.m. that same day. Virtually every
street in every townsite of the Canal
Zone was canvassed for food, cloth-
ing, and other items vitally needed
by the residents of the flood stricken
areas of Bocas del Toro and Chiriqui
A total of eight truckloads of
goods was collected, sorted and
packed into 74 boxes which were
labeled in Spanish and loaded on
Panama National Guard trucks.
From the Canal Zone, the trucks
went to awaiting planes which
rushed the needed items to the flood
areas. Of the total, five truckloads
were collected on the Pacific side
and three on the Atlantic side.
Three full truckloads of food were
Pacific side collections included
300 dresses, 200 blouses, 300 pairs
of assorted shoes, 100 complete
suits, 100 pairs of drapes, 72
women's sweaters, 300 men's shirts,
100 pairs of socks, six boxes of baby
clothing, blankets, baby food, fur-
niture, dishes and towels plus many
other items.
A partial list of Atlantic side col-
lections included two large crates of
shoes, 20 boxes of men's clothing,
15 boxes of women's clothing, 15
boxes of children's clothes, two
boxes of baby clothes, and 20 boxes
of food.

approximately 6 percent retroactive
to December 28, 1969.
The increases, totaling about $2.5
million for the year, will affect some
1,800 U.S. citizens and 2,650 non-
U.S.-citizen employees.
These increases are an admin-
istrative application of the Federal

Service Awards

Presented to

458 Employees
A group of Panama Canal em-
ployees representing 14,270 years
of service, perhaps the largest
number of years of service repre-
sented by any organization in the
U.S. Government, will be honored
this morning at an awards cere-
mony held at the Balboa Theater.
Canal Zone Gov. W. P: Leber
will present 40-Year Length-of-
Service Awards to 53 Canal em-
ployees and 30-Year Length-of-
Service Awards to 405 employees
from both sides of the Isthmus. This
will be the largest group in the
Canal's history to be honored at an
annual service award ceremony.
Bureau directors will present pins
to the employees.
William A. Sullivan, Chief of the
Employee Services Branch, was to
make the opening remarks and in-
troduce the Bureau directors and
Governor Leber at the 10 a.m.

"Night of the Iguana" Scene

The curtain went up last night on the first performance
of "The Night of the Iguana" which opened at the
Theatre Guild for a run of 8 nights. This scene of the
adult play shows T. Lawrence Shannon, the troubled,
defrocked minister, played by Don Lohse, in apparent
agony after being tied up to stop him from swimming
to China. Also shown, from left, are Maxine (Charlotte
Wiedel) who operates the small Mexican seacoast inn

where the action takes place; Pedro (Phil Fuqua) and
Pancho (Dave Furlong), the beachboys, and Hannah
(Catherine Jestice), the New England spinster who has
devoted her entire life to her old poet grandfather,
Nonno, and her paintings. H. Loring White is directing

scheduled for tonight, tomorrow, and April 28, 29, and

cently enacted by Congress to in-
crease the general schedule and
postal schedule employees in the
United States.
In addition to the non-manual and
postal categories, the increases will
affect Canal pilots, schoolteachers in
the Special Latin American School
Group, executive positions, Power
Branch supervisory employees and
certain designations in the Fee Rate
Group. They will be reflected in
the paychecks of May 11 and the
retroactive portion for the period
from December 28 through April 18
will be paid at a later date, which
will be announced shortly.
The Civil Service Commission
has announced that shortage cate-
gory employees covered by special
salary rates will receive the same
pay increase as employees covered
by the regular schedules, including
increases on the same retroactive
basis. In the Canal organization,
this includes the special rate range
schedules for engineers, geologists,
nurses, medical officers, account-
ants, psychologists, veterinarians,
and industrial hygienists, and cer-
tain physical scientists.
The pay increases will apply for
the period of service involved for
any individuals in the above cate-
gories who retired between Decem-
ber 27, 1969, and April 15, 1970,
the date of enactment. Pay increases
will be granted also for the purpose
of settlement of accounts to cover
service rendered during the retro-
active period by an employee who
died during this period.
Employees in those steps of grade
NM-1 and 2 who received substan-
tial increases in February J970
under application of the Fair Labor
Standards Act minimum wage of
$1.45 will not receive increases
under this adjustment for the period
following February 1.

Work Is Started

On Admin. Bldg.

Windows, Doors
Work has been started on the re-
placement of windows and doors
located on the inner court side of
the Balboa Heights Administration
According to R. J. Risberg, Chief
of the Construction Division, the
project, which is one of a series of
improvements planned for the 56-
year-old Administration Building,
is being done under contract by
Carruth International Inc. at a
cost of $53,490.
Both the windows and the doors
being installed are of heavy plate
glass fitted into aluminum frames.
The lower foot and a half of the
windows are constructed so that
they can be opened inwards. The
doors are adjusted so that they will
shut automatically.
Replacement of the windows on
the three floors of the inner court
of the building has been part of a
long range plan since rain started
to leak through the nm;liogany
frames which were installed in 1914.

Canal Zone Scout Sees

Launch of Apollo 13

Eagle Scout Gregory F. Gillis,
whose main interest is aeronautical
engineering, had a ringside seat at
the launching of Apollo 13. When
the gigantic rocket blasted off for
the moon, he was seated, along with
about 155 other Explorer Scouts
from all over the United States,
only two bleachers away from Vice
President Spiro Agnew and his
party, in an area ordinarily reserved
for official visitors.
Gregory, who was selected by
the Canal Zone Council of the Boys
Scouts of America to represent the
Canal Zone at the launching, had
more than an ordinary interest in
the launching and the exploration of
space. He has received an appoint-
ment to the U.S. Air Force Academy
and will be leaving for Colorado
Springs shortly after his graduation
from Balboa High School in May.
For the Apollo 13 launching, the
National Aeronautical Space Ad-
ministration invited Explorer Scouts
from all the states of the United
States and the Canal Zone. For the
Apollo 12 blast-off, Girl Scouts
were invited.
In addition to witnessing the
launching, the boys were given a
tour of the Cape Kennedy area and
were taken for a visit to the space
museum. All the boys were spon-
sored by families in the Orlando
area. Gregory's family took him for
a visit to Gatorland, a wildlife
Born in Denver, Colo., Gregory
has spent the last 3 years in the
Canal Zone where his father, C.M.
Sgt. George F. Gillis is stationed
at Howard AFB.
He is a past lodge chief of the
Order of the Golden Arrow and
helped organize the Order of the
Golden Arrow dance team in the
Canal Zone. He was one of the 40

April 24, 1970

Capt. Thomas Gove and his wife, Cecelia, stand by the one-engined plane
which they both have learned how to fly. Both received their pilot's licenses
from the Sawyer School of Aviation of Phoenix, Ariz., and both are mem-
bers of the Canal Zone Civil Air Club operating at France Field. The plane
is owned by the club.

Pilot, Wife Make Team

As Aviators, Radio Hams

Capt. and Mrs. Thomas Gove of
Margarita believe in togetherness.
They are partners in about every-
thing they do. Both are licensed
ham radio operators; both have
licenses to pilot small planes and
both are sailboat buffs.
When they are not doing these
things together, Captain Gove pilots
ships through the Canal and his
wife Cecelia interests herself in
community activities.
She is the founder and charter
member of the first chapter of the
women's singing group Sweet
Adelines to be established outside
of the United States and Canada.
She founded the local chapter in
1961 and at present it has a mem-
bership of 45 women.
Members of the group have sung
on various occasions at functions
on the Isthmus and they have ap-
peared before the President of Pan-
ama. They can always be found
singing at Easter and Christmas
parties. Mrs. Gove is a member of
the group known as the Pan Canet-
tes which won the regional Sweet
Adelines championship at Clear-
water, Fla., in 1966. She is also a
member of the Little Theatre and
Cristobal Women's Club.
In recognition of her community
work, she received in 1962 a certi-
ficate of merit and appreciation
from the Colon branch of the
Soroptomists of America. The certi-
ficate honored her as an Isthmian
Woman of distinction who con-
tributed her time and talents toward
the enrichment of community life
in the Isthmus of Panama.
Flying small planes is a recent
hobby taken up by the Goves. They
began taking flying lessons from the
Sawyer School of Aviation of
Phoenix, Ariz., in September 1969.
She received her license as a pilot
November 8, 4 days after Captain
Gove received his license.
The Goves do not have their own
plane. They belong to the Canal
Zone Civil Air Club in Old France
Field, an organization which has 60
members. The club has two planes,
a Cessna 150 and a Cessna 172,
both single engine planes, which are
rented to members. Members take
flights to Paitilla, Tocumen, Santa
Clara, Santiago, David, and other
places on the Isthmus.
The flying hobby proved to be
a little more expensive than ex-
pected, so Captain and Mrs. Cove,
have given up sailing and sold the
sailboat they had on Gatun Lake.

Ham radio has brought them in
contact with hundred of friends all
over the world. The Goves confess
that they would have more com-
munication in Latin American
countries if they spoke better
Spanish. They have found, however,
that many people in this part of
the world speak English. On several
occasions, they have made contacts
to obtain medicines which have
been requested for emergencies.
A few of the other activities the
Goves have shared include member-
ship of the Coco Solo-France Field
Civic Council, Carnival Junta Com-
mittee, and Holy Family Church
Carnival Committee.
The Goves have three sons: Steve,
24, studying at the University of
Washington, in Seattle; Gregory,
23, Chief Warrant Officer and heli-
copter pilot in the Army on his
second tour of duty in Vietnam;
and Michael, 18, who is in the
Marine Corps.




Being Held
The observance of Passover, the
Festival of Freedom, began in the

Pay Raise
(Continued from p. 1)
Hospital interns and residents,
although not covered by the Fed-
eral pay increase, have been author-
ized an administrative increase by
the Governor within the maximum
stipends allowed by the Civil Serv-
ice Commission to be effective
prospectively in July.
Police, firemen, and teachers are
not covered by this increase but are
expected to be granted increases in
the near future as a result of pay
increase legislation that is pending
for District of Columbia police,
firemen, and teachers.
This increase also does not apply
to blue-collar workers, whose pay
is reviewed and adjusted annually.
Manual Category employees will
receive pay increases in July and
the wage rates of the several Wage
Board Groups are adjusted on
various dates in accord with their
annual review schedules.

Gente en la Noticia

Enrique Van Kwartel es subjefe en la oficina del Patio
de Ferrocarril en Balboa. Entr6 al servicio del Canal
de PanamA el 21 de diciembre de 1964 y siempre carga
consigo su emblema de 5 aiios de servicio. Van Kwartel
reside en el Barrio de La Exposici6n en la ciudad de
Panamf, pero naci6 en la ciudad de Col6n hace 45
aiios. En la ciudad Atlantica curs6 sus studios pri-
marios y secundarios. Estudi6 en el Colegio San Jos4
de La Salle y recuerda que durante toda la primaria y
el primer afio de secundaria fue compafiero del actual
President de la Junta de Gobierno de la Rep6blica de
Panami, Ing. Demetrio B. Lakas. "Cuando ibamos para
segundo afio de bachillerato, Jimmy, como le llamA-
bamos los compafieros, viaj6 a Estados Unidos a termi-
nar su educaci6n," dice Van Kwartel. Van Kwartel
hizo 4 semestres de comercio superior en la Universidad i
Nacional de PanamA, pero debido a multiples razones, .
no ha podido continuar esos studios. El 21 de diciem-
bre de 1956, contrajo matrimonio con la que hoy dia es
Sra. Aura Cano de Van Kwartel. Tienen dos hijitas:
Ileana, de 10 afios, que cursa el segundo grado, y
Roxana, de 7 afios, que esta en primer grado;
ambas asisten a la Escuela Republica de Chile. Van
Kwartel y los suyos cumplen sus deberes religiosos en
la Iglesia de San Juan Bosco. "Me gusta por su gran-
diosidad e imponencia," dice Van Kwartel. Antes de
venir a trabajar al Canal de Panama, Van Kwartel
ayud6 durante muchos afios a su padre en la Farmacia
Americana de la ciudad de Col6n, propiedad de la
familiar. "En la familiar hay cinco farmac6uticos," dice
Van Kwartel, "pero mi hermano Mario, que esti en
el Poder Judicial de PanamA, y yo nos hemos dedicado
a otra cosa." Tambidn se dedic6 durante various anos al
comercio en la ciudad de PanamA hasta que decidi6
entrar a la familiar del Canal. Le encanta ir a Playa
Coronado, donde la familiar posee una casa de veraneo.
Su mayor deseo es darle la vuelta al mundo en un '
barco de pasajeros y se encuentra sumamente compla-
cido con su trabajo en el Canal de Panama. "La estabi-
lidad en el trabajo es algo de gran valor y eso es lo que
aqui tenemos. En el Canal de PanamA, si uno cumple
bien con su trabajo, no tiene que preocuparse de nada
mas," son sus observaciones finales.

Bombero que se le

Queman las Patillas

El subjefe del Cuerpo de Bom-
beros Voluntaries de Clayton, Illi-
no:s, queria dejarse crecer una pati-
Ila para estar mAs en carActer du-
rante las fiestas del Centenario de
la comunidad. Siendo soldador no
tard6 much tiempo en que se le
quemaran. Pero 61 no se dio por
vencido, volvi6 a dejarselas crecer.
Con sus patillas crecidas y a
pocos dias de las fiestas volvieron
a quemarsele, esta vez apagando un
fuego en una casa incendiada al ex-
plotar una lata de gasoline. Para
las fiestas del centenario el subjefe
de bombers us6 patillas postizas.

Abril 24, 1970


Frente a su estaci6n de radioaficionados aparecen los mundo. Este es uno de los various pasatiempos que
esposos CapitAn Thomas Gove y Cecelia, haciendo tienen los esposos Gove, activos residents de Margarita
contact con uno de sus colegas en alguna parte del y de toda la comunidad en el sector Atlfntico del Istmo.

Radioaficionados y Pilotos de

Aviaci6n son los Esposos Gove

Decididos partidarios de la nave-
gaci6n en veleros, de pilotar avio-
netas y hablar por su estaci6n de
radioaficionados, son los esposos
Thomas y Cecelia Gove, residents
en Margarita, en el sector Atlintico
del Istmo.
Oriundos de Seattle, Washington,
en donde se conocieron en el campo
de las relaciones piblicas, vinieron
al Istmo en 1958 y desde entonces
han residido aqui.
Thomas es prActico del Canal de
PanamA, en tanto que Cecelia hace
much labor en la comunidad.
Cecelia es integrante del Pequefio
Teatro, del Club Femenino de Cris-
t6bal y es la fundadora del primer
grupo de cantantes "The Sweet
Adelines" fuera de los Estados Uni-
dos y Canada, en agosto de 1961.
"Sweet Adelines" es una organi-
zaci6n dividida en capitulos inter-
nacionales y el grupo local tiene
45 damas. Han cantado en distintos
espectAculos en el Istmo y a6n ante
un President de PanamA. Sus pre-
sentaciones regulars son en la
Navidad y en la primavera en el
Pequefo Teatro de Crist6bal.
Cecelia fund en 1958, el grupo
"The Pan Canettes," que fue cam-
pe6n regional en Clearwater, Flo-
rida, en 1966.
Su labor en la comunidad le ha
hecho obtener el reconocimiento
de la Federaci6n Soroptimista de
las Americas, Club de Col6n, que
le dio un certificado de mArito y
aprecio, honrAndola como una Da-
ma Istmeiia de Distinci6n por su
contribuci6n de tiempo y talent
en beneficio de la vida de la co-
munidad en el Istmo de PanamA.
Ese certificado fue otorgado el 11
de agosto de 1962.
Poseedora de una distinguida per-
sonalidad, la Sra. Gove obtuvo su
licencia como piloto de aviaci6n el
8 de noviembre filtimo, 4 dias des-
pues que su esposo habia obtenido
la suya. En septiembre de 1969,
comenzaron a recibir lecciones de
aviaci6n en la Escuela de Aviaci6n
Sawyer en Phoenix, Arizona.
Los esposos Cove no poseen
avi6n propio, pero son miembros
del Club de AeronAutica Civil de
la Zona del Canal, que opera en
el viejo France Field y que cuenta
con unos 60 miembros. El club
tiene dos aviones, un Cessna 150 y
un Cessna 172, de un solo motor,
los cuales son alquilados por sus
socios. Ellos liacen vuelos a Paitilla,
Tociumnn, Santa Clara, Santiago,
David y otros lngares en el Istmo.
Poseian antes un bote de vela,
con el cual participaron en algunas
regatas que se celebraron en el sec-

tor AtlAntico, pero cambiaron ese
pasatiempo por el de la aviaci6n,
"que es algo costoso," confiesan
Thomas v Cecelia.
Gran parte del tiempo libre lo
pasan en la estaci6n de radioaficio-
nados que tienen en su residencia.
Las letras de identificaci6n de
Thomas son KZ5CT, obtenidas en
1963, y las de Cecelia, KZ5SA, re-
cibidas en 1967.
En su estaci6n de radioaficiona-
dos, han hecho comunicaciones con
colegas de todo el mundo y confie-
san que si hablaran un poco ms
de espaiiol, harian mAs comunica-
ciones, con mAs radioaficionados de
los paises latinoamericanos, "aun-
que muchos de ellos hablan ingles
y no tenemos problemss, dice
En muchas ocasiones les ha toca-
do hacer trafico medico, cuando se
necesitan algunas medicines que no
se encuentran en determinada ciu-
Los esposos Gove estAn muy
orgullosos de sus tres hijos, Steve,
de 24 afios, quien estA estudiando
en la Universidad de Washington
en Seattle; Gregory, de 23, quien
es Official Asimilado en el Ej&rcito
y piloto de helic6ptero en su segun-
da visit a Vietnam, y quien despues
de su primer viaje a Vietnam vino
a Fuerte Clayton por 8 meses, des-
de mayo hasta diciembre de 1969,
en el Servicio Gcod6sico Interame-
ricano, regresando a Vietnam en
enero de este afio; y Michael, de
18 afios, quien se encuentra en la
Infanteria de Marina, en donde serA
enviado a la Divisi6n de Manteni-
miento de la Aviaci6n de la Infante-
ria de Marina en Memphis, Tennes-
see. Las fotografias de los tres estin
en sitio preferente en la sala de la
acogedora residencia de los Gove.
Es dificil encontrar a una pareja
de esposos que tengan las mismas
aficiones: botes de vela, estaciones
de radioaficionados y pilotar avio-
netas. Lo finico que Thomas no
hace, es cantar como Cecelia, pero
su labor como prActico del Canal,
le tiene bastante ocupado durante
casi todos los dias de la semana.
Thomas ha servido en la junta
directive del Breakers Club en 1960
y 1961, en el Club de Yates de Cris-
t6bal durante 1966 y con la junta
directive del Club de AeronAutica
Civil de la Zona del Canal en 1970.
Los esposos Gove fueron miem-
bros del Consejo Civico de Coco
Solo-France Field de 1959 a 1962,
de la Junta del Carnaval del Atlin-
tico en 1963 y 1964 y de la Junta
del Carnaval de la Iglesia de la

Sagrada Familia en 1968, 1969 y
Una de las cosas mas placenteras
para Cecelia, en su "vida musical,"
ha sido el tiempo que pas6 con las
j6venes del 89 al 129 grado de la
Academia de Santa Maria en Col6n.
Ella organize en 1963, las "Canto-
ras Marianas" en ese plantel edu-
cativo. El grupo de 38 cantantes
actu6 en un concerto formal en
el Teatro Rex de Col6n, y 4 afios
despues, volvi6 al colegio, para or-
ganizar otro similar que lleg6 a 70
j6venes, pero la noche del concerto
habian 58.
Cuando Cecelia arrib6 al Istmo
en 1958, fue seleccionada secreta-
ria del Consejo Civico de Coco
Solo-France Field; fue president
del Club de Recien Llegadas (New-
comers) en 1959; integrante de la
junta directive del Club Femenino
de Cristobal de 1963 a 1967 y lue-
go en 1970; tambi6n en la junta
directive del Pequefio Teatro de
Crist6bal en 1963, 1964, 1969 y
1970; fue Voluntaria de la Cruz
Roja en 1965 y director de Volun-
tarias durante 1966.
Ha estado muy active en la vida
de la comunidad la Sra. Cecelia
Cove y su esposo estA muy compla-
cido con ello.

Las Puertas

Y Ventanas
Se ha iniciado el trabajo de re-
emplazar las ventanas y puertas si-
tuadas en la secci6n interior del
Edificio de Administraci6n en Bal-
boa Heights.
El proyecto, que es uno de una
series de mejoras planeadas para el
Edificio de Administraci6n construi-
do hace 56 afios, se estA haciendo
bajo contrato por Carruth Interna-
tional Inc. a un costo de $53.490.
Tanto las ventanas como las puer-
tas que se estan instalando son de
lamina gruesa de vidrio, armado en
marcos de aluminio. El pie y medio
inferior de las ventanas estA cons-
truido de tal forma que puedan ser
abiertas hacia adentro. Las puertas
estin ajustadas en tal forma que
pueden cerrarse automaticamente.
El reemplazo de las ventanas en
los tres pisos de la secci6n interior
del edificio ha sido parte de un plan
de largo plazo desde que la lluvia
comenz6 a colarse a trav6s de los
marcos de caoba (uel fueron insta-
lados en 1914.
