Clarence Payne Assumes

New Youth Advisor Post

Canal Zone Youth Advisor Clar-
ence C. Payne has assumed his du-
ties with the newly created post as
principal advisor to the Governor
in matters pertaining to the welfare
of young people.
He is available for consultation

uals and can be reached through the
office of the deputy executive sec-
retary at Balboa 4420.
A prime objective of the youth
advisor is to marshal the efforts of

Pay Increases

Are Approved

By Governor
The Governor has approved the
pay increases previously announced
for policemen, firemen, and teachers
in the Canal Zone Government,
averaging 13 percent for each
The new rates will appear in the
paychecks received the week begin-
ning July 20 of regular, full-time
employees. The retroactive pay back
to July 13, 1969, for police and fire
personnel, and to September 7,
1969, for teachers may also be paid
at the same time. The offices in-
volved in making the calculations
have been working overtime to try
to make this possible. A definite
announcement will be made about
this in the next issue of the SPILL-
To be eligible for the retroactive
portion of the increases, employees
must be on the rolls on the date of
enactment. This means that indi-
viduals who terminated or retired
before the President signed the bill
are not covered by the retroactive
provision. Some employees who
transferred from these groups to the
Manual, Non-Manual, and other
wage categories also will not be
eligible for the retroactive pay.
Advance copies of the pay sched-
ules have been released to the divi-
sions affected. Copies also have been
provided to representatives of in-
terested labor unions.

mony. Seated behind him are Canal officials and repre- ceremony at the Balboa Training Center. It was the
sentatives of the U.S. Army Southern Command who largest graduating class in the history of the program.

In Talk by Governor

Graduating Apprentices Urged

To Continue With Learning

A total of 60 apprentices, the
greatest number in the 64-year his-
tory of the Canal's apprentice pro-
gram, received their graduation cer-
tificates during ceremonies held last
week at the Balboa Training Center.
Of the total, 41 are Canal em-
ployees and 19 are employed by
the U.S. Army Southern Command.
Wives, parents, and Canal offi-
cials were among the approximately
150 persons who were on hand to
witness the ceremony at which Out-
standing Service Awards were pre-
sented to 13 graduates, 10 repre-
senting the Canal organization and
three Army apprentices.
A highlight of the graduation cer-
emony was an address by Gov.
W. P. Leber who traced the long
history of the Apprentice Program
and spelled out its impact on the
operation of the Canal and on the
lives of the graduates.

Spring Mosquito Influx

Hasn't Materialized-Yet

Isthmian mosquito watchers may
have noticed that the hordes of pest
mosquitoes that frequently invade
this area during the spring months
have not turned up-yet.
The black and white bandy
legged Aedes taeniorhynchus, also
known as the 25-mile mosquito, nor-
mally visit the Isthmus in swarms
soon after the first heavy seasonal
rains. They are especially trouble-
some on the Atlantic side. The peak
periods are usually in April, May,
and June but they dissipate in 2 to
3 weeks.
The Canal's Sanitation Division
reports the mosquitoes have not
shown up so far this year in any
great numbers. Using light traps
4 nights per week, Northern Sanita-
tion Area office personnel recorded
a record catch of 23,000 mosquitoes
in 1 week in 1963. Normally, the
average is about 100 mosquitoes but
this year the total catch has been far
below normal. Checks of several
individual houses at night after dusk

have revealed only a few of the
The Health Bureau points out
that these mosquitoes are not a
disease vector but a local pest, par-
ticularly when they come in large
numbers. Insecticidal fogging dur-
ing the rainy season by the Division
of Sanitation, which began May 25
in all townsites, will reduce the mos-
quito population. The use of out-
side aerosols obtainable at the retail
stores is recommended for use in
patios at night. But if the mos-
quitoes are in great numbers, it is
adviseable to retire to inside of the
house after dusk during the invasion
The annual invasion of the pest
mosquitoes also coincides with the
renewed activity of the malaria car-
rying Anopheles mosquito. Protec-
tive clothing and effective repellents
are advised for those who partici-
pate in outdoor activities, par-
ticularly hunters, fishermen and
campers, who should use mosquito
netting when spending nights out-

"A significant number of appren-
tices and graduates of the Canal
Apprentice Program have played an
important role in the construction
and operation of our famous water-
way during the period since 1906,
the year the Canal Apprenticeship
program was started."
By completing their apprentice-
ship, the Governor noted, the grad-
uates "have successfully achieved a
blending of theory and skill devel-
opment that has earned for you the,
right to step forward and accept the
title of craft-journeyman in your
The Governor noted that there
are 300 persons enrolled in the
Apprentice Program, the largest en-
rollment in its history. Of this figure
the Canal has 240 apprentices and
the military agencies have 60. There
are 200 Panamanian citizens and
100 U.S. citizens enrolled in the
The Governor pointed out to the
graduates that they will have to con-
tinue to add to their knowledge they
had already gained.
"While we today compliment you,
we must as a matter of reality add
that you are not finished with learn-
ing. The problem of updating and
keeping current on the rapid tech-
nological advancement in your craft
will require that you continue your
development through self-study
during your journeyman years."
The closing remarks were deliv-
ered by Truman H. Hoenke, Chief,
Locks Division.

it was-a beautiful passenger liner."
She is Miss Maria Kerley and the

where she is majoring in education.
Alter a 2-year preparatory course at
Gulf Park College, Maria plans to
enroll in the University of Mississip-

Charley the burro is the property
of E. V. Smith, a plumber with the
Maintenance Division in Cristobal,
who recently drove to Dallas, Tex.,
on vacation with his wife, Angela.
On the way back to Panama, they
stopped to visit a friend in Somoto,
Nicaragua, and while there Smith
bought the 50-pound burro at the
bargain price of $5.
Mrs. Smith flew back to Panama
while Smith remained behind to
make the arrangements for resuming
his journey with the burro in the
back seat of his small auto. But
before leaving Nicaragua, Smith
went to the Ministry of Agriculture
in Managua to obtain a health cer-
tificate so he could take Charley
across the border. Two days later,
he was on his way south with
Charley in the back enjoying the
Charley's daily diet during the
trip consisted of milk, fed to him
from a soft drink bottle, plus grass
and animal feed carried in the back
of the car. At night, when Smith
stopped to stay at a motel, Charley
would be placed in a nearby stable
or tied up outside. Smith reported
that the trip was surprisingly free
from difficulties.
When they reached the border of
Panama, officials instructed him to
go to David so that a veterinarian
could give Charlie an anthrax injec-
tion. From David, they headed to
Smith's home at Sabanitas, outside
Colon, where Mr. and Mrs. Smith
live with three dogs.

Here's How

To Deal With

Fire in Car

What would you do if the family
car caught fire?
A fire extinguisher should be
available for ready use along with
other emergency equipment.
Is yours handy and do you know
how to use it?
The recommended extinguisher is
a 2,2-lb. or larger size dry chemical
or CO2 type.
Do not rely on "beer" can size fire
Never attempt to fight a fire
around the gasoline tank . it's
just too dangerous.
In case of an engine fire:
(a) Turn off the ignition and get
everyone out of the car. Have some-
one call the Fire Department (Dial
119). A car fire can get out of control
(b) Raise the hood carefully and
protect hands and face from sudden
(c) Stand back and aim short
bursts of extinguisher at base of
flame. Try not to use up the ex-
tinguisher in case fire starts up
In case of an upholstery fire:
(a) Water is the best extinguisher
in this case. Be sure to use enough
to completely put out the fire. If
water is not available, sand, or dirt
can be used. Dry chemical or carbon
dioxide extinguishers may not put
out an upholstery fire.
(b) Remove the smouldering part
(usually the seat) if possible. Be par-
ticularly careful of upholstery fires
since they can smolder unnoticed
and burst into flames several hours
The surest way to avoid a car
fire is by getting fuel and electrical
troubles fixed at once. Also be par-
ticularly careful when smoking.
Ordinarily, if someone is injured
in an automobile accident he should
be moved no more than is necessary
until medical help arrives. However,
if gasoline is leaking, get everyone
away from the car as fast as possible.
Unseen gasoline vapors spread and
can flash into dangerous fires. AND

"Nada de viajar en el asiento de adelante", parece decir
E. V. Smith a Charley, el burrito de 50 libras que Smith


Se Trajo un Burrito de

Nicaragua Para su Casa

"Viajes con Charley", un libro re-
lacionado con los viajes de un hom-
bre con su perro, ayud6 a ganar el
Premio Nobel de literature a John
Steinbeck. La version de la Zona
del Canal de los viajes con Charley
es algo diferente y aunque pueda
que no gane ningun prenio, es bas-
tante interesante.
El Charley en este caso es un bu-
rro de 2 meses de edad que viaj6
desde Nicaragua hasta Panama en
el asiento trasero del sedan Volks-
wagen de su dueno.
Charley el burro, es propiedad de
E. V. Smith, un plomero de la Di-
visi6n de Mantenimiento en Crist6-
bal, quien recientemente manej6
hasta Dallas, Texas, en uso de vaca-
ciones, con su esposa Angela. En su
viaje de regreso a PanamA, se detu-
vieron para visitar a un amigo en
Somoto, Nicaragua, y mientras es-
taban alli Smith compr6 el burro de
50 libras al precio barato de $5.
La Sra. de Smith regres6 a Pa-
nam! por via area mientras Smith
se quedaba atras para hacer los arre-
glos de reanudaci6n de su jornada
con el burro en el asiento trasero de
su pequefio autom6vil. Pero antes
de salir de Nicaragua, Smith fue al
Ministerio de Agricultura en Mana-

compr6 en Nicaragua y trajo a Panama en el asiento
trasero de su Volkswagen.

La dieta diaria de Charley du-
rante el viaje consisti6 de leche, que
se le daba por medio de una botella
de soda, ademas de hierba y pienso
que Ilevaba en la parte de atras del
auto. Por la noche, cuando Smith se
detenia para dormir en un motel,
Charley era llevado a un establo
cercano o amarrado afuera. Smith
inform que el viaje fue sorpren-
dentemente libre de dificultades.
Cuando Ilegaron a la frontera de
PanamA, los funcionarios le dieron
instrucciones de ir a David para que
el veterinario pudiera darle a Char-
lie una inyecci6n contra el Antrax.
Desde David se dirigieron a la casa
de Smith en Sabanitas, en las afue-
ras de Col6n, en donde los esposos

Charley parece estar gozando de
su nueva residencia en PanamA, de
acuerdo con lo que informa Smith,
quien est, contemplando conseguir
una burra para que le haga compa-

No Han Aparecido Todavia

Las Plagas de Mosquitos

Los que observan a los mosquitos
en el Istmo se habran dado cuenta
de que los enjambres de molestos
mosquitos que frecuentemente in-
vaden esta Area durante los meses
de primavera, no han aparecido
El Aedes taeniorhynchus el zam-
bo negro y blanco, tambi6n conoci-
do como el mosquito de 25 millas,
visit normalmente el Istno en en-
jambres poco despubs de las prime-
ras lluvias fuertes de la temporada.
Son especialmente fastidiosos en el
sector AtlAntico. Los periods Algi-
dos son por lo general en abril,
mayo y junior, pero se dispersan en
2 6 3 semanas.
La Division de Sanidad del Canal
inform que los mosquitos no se
han presentado hasta ahora este afio
en ninguin gran numero. Usando
trampas de luz 4 noches a la sema-
na, el personal de la Oficina de Sa-
nidad del Area Norte registry una
noarca de 23.000 mosquitos atrapa-
dos en 1 semana en 1963. Normal-
rncnte, el promedio es de alrededor
de 1010 mrosquitos, pcro este afio el
total atrapad Iha estado muy por
dchajo de 1o normal. Revisions en
varias easas individuals durante la

noche han revelado que hay pocos
de estos insects.
La Direcci6n de Salubridad se-
fiala que estos mosquitos no son
portadores de enfermedades, pero si
una gran molestia, particularmente
cuando vienen en grandes cantida-
des. La niebla insecticide durante la
estaci6n lluviosa, que la Divisi6n de
Sanidad empez6 a esparcir el 25 de
mayo en todas las comunidades, re-
ducira la poblaci6n de los mosqui-
tos. El uso de aerosoles externos
que se pueden obtener en los alma-
cenes, es recomendado para el uso
en los patios por la noche. Pero si
los mosquitos estin en grandes can-
tidades, es aconsejable meters den-
tro de la casa despu6s del anoche-
cer durante el period de invasion.
La invasion annual de la plaga de
mosquitos coincide tambien con la
renovada actividad del mosquito
transmisor de la malaria el Anofeles.
Ropa protectora y repelentes efecti-
vos son aconsejables para aquellos
que participan en actividades al aire
libre, particularmente los cazado-
res, pescadores y los que acampan,
quienes deben usar mosquiteros
cuando pasan la noche al aire libre.

La Sra. Violette Rhaburn, presi-
denta del Consejo Civico de Santa
Cruz, lo mismo que los demas miem-
bros de esa organizaci6n y personas
activas de la comunidad se encuen-
tran organizando y dando los l6ti-
mos toques a la preparaci6n del gran
baile de gala annual de la comunidad
de Santa Cruz, que tendra lugar el
sibado 29 de agosto, de 9 p.m. a las
5 a.m.

Este event social, de todos los
afios, sirve como medio para reco-
ger fondos y Ilevar adelante todas
las obras de superaci6n communal
que tiene a su cargo el Consejo Ci-
vico de Santa Cruz. HabrA una can-
tidad de atracciones adicionales a
este baile que seri amenizado por
la popularisima orquesta de Willie
Moro. Pr6ximamente les daremos
mAs detalles sobre este important
acto social, pero desde ya podemos
adelantarles que el vestido para la
ocasi6n sera de rigurosa etiqueta.

En la graduaci6n del ltimo curso
de ingles de la Asociaci6n Paname-
iia Norteamericana, que dicho sea
de paso cambiarA su nombre por el
de Centro Cultural Panameeio Nor-
teamericano (CEPA), various alum-
nos panamenos, algunos de los cua-
les estain relacionados con el per-
sonal del Canal de PanamA, recibie-
ron magnificos premios.

La Srta. Arisa Batista recibi6 una
beca para estudiar en el Madison

Chong recibi6 otra beca para estu-
diar en el Meredith College de Ca-
rolina del Norte. Tambien se dona-
ron pasajes para ir a estudiar en los
Estados Unidos a otros alumnos dis-

Los residents del sector Paci-
fico que sintieron bastante calor el
pasado viernes 3 de julio, estuvie-
ron en lo correct, pues la estaci6n

meteorol6gica de Balboa Heights
register 96 grades Fahrenheit, que
equi\alen a 35.4 grades Centigrados.
Dice Climaco Abadia, del Ramo de
Metcorologia e Hidrografia, que si
en la estaci6n meteorol6gica se re-
gistr6 esa temperature, a pesar de
que alli se mantiene una tempera-
tura ideal, es seguro que en cier-
tos sectors del centro de la ciudad
de Panama, la temperature pas6 de
los 100 grades Fahrenheit (37.6
grades Centigrados). "Hubo mo-
mentos en que tuve deseos de que
hubieran inventado un aparato por-
tltil de acondicionamiento de aire",
declar6 el amigo Abadia.

Esta vez, la COCTELERA se quiere
meter a ensefiar castellano. Es que
muy frecuentemente se escucha a
personas bien educadas decir: "Di-
ciembre es el doceavo mes del afio;
Fulano de Tal estaba en el cator-
ceavo lugar en la fila; mi perro que-
d6 de onceavo en el concurso, etc.".
Ello constitute un tremendo error
en castellano, pues los numerales
terminados en avo son partitivos e
indican parties de quebrados, lo que
es muy diferente a los ordinales, que
se refieren al orden en que esta una
secuencia de cosas. Por lo tanto se
debe decir: "Diciembre es el duo-
dceimo mes del afio; Fulano de Tal
estaba en el dCcimo cuarto lugar y
mi perro qued6 de undecimo en el
concurso". Y hasta aqui la lecci6n.

La Srta. Ivy DaCosfa, eficiente
cajera de la secci6n del restaurant
del Centro de Servicios Comunales
de Balboa, se distingue principal-
mente por la amabilidad que siem-
pre tiene para con todos.

ahora una de las principles escue-
las privadas en la ciudad con una
matricula de mis de 250 nifios.
El prop6sito de la visit del Re-

Aprueban Aumentos
(Viene de la pdgina 1)
13 de julio de 1969 para los poli-
cias y bombers, y al 7 de septiem-
bre de 1969 para los maestros, y es
possible que sea pagada al mismo
tiempo. Las oficinas encargadas de
hacer los cAlculos han estado tra-
bajando sobretiempo tratando de
que ello sea possible. Un anuncio de-
finitivo a este respect se harA en la
pr6xima edici6n del SPILLWAY.
Para ser eligible para la porci6n
retroactive de los aumentos, los em-
pleados deberan haber estado en
planillas en la fecha de la promul-
gaci6n. Ello quiere decir que los in-
dividuos que terminaron su empleo
o se jubilaron antes de que el Pre-
sidente firmara la Ley no estan am-
parados por la provision retroactive.
Algunos empleados que fueron tras-
ladados de estos grupos a las cate-
gorias, Manual, No Manual y otras,
tampoco seran elegibles para el
pago de salaries retroactivos.
Se han entregado copias de las
nuevas tasas de salaries a las divi-
siones afectadas, lo mismo que a
los sindicatos interesados.
