Dates Are Changed
For Youth Parties
The Canal Zone Youth Council
has changed the dates for the two
parties on the Governor's Island next
month so that the younger group
may enjoy both the party and the
Junior Olympic Swimming Finals
August 8 at Coco Solo Pool.
The first party on the Governor's
Island will be August 1 for the
11-16 age group. The second, for
the 17-24 age group, is to be held
August 8.

Ship Safety


Stepped up
As part of its continuing effort to
provide safe ship access and work-
ing conditions for its employees, the
Marine Bureau has stepped up in-
spection of vessels carrying deck-
loads of cargo. The purpose is to
insure that the areas where deck-
hands must work are safe, and that
there is safe access to board the
ships and to work aboard them.
Many of the maritime nations of
the world have adequate regulations
which provide for the safety of the
crew of a ship with a deck cargo.
But some do not, and occasionally
a ship arrives for transit with a deck
cargo that would challenge the skills
of a Swiss mountain climber to get
around or over the cargo to the
working areas.
Others, particularly lumber ships,
have unprotected spaces in the
cargo that could be death traps to
unwary persons, who might inad-
vertently step in them, especially at

The public is invited to an open
house at the JWB Center on La
Boca Road, Balboa, from 3 to 5
p.m., August 9, in honor of Chap-
lain (Major) and Mrs. Alan M.
Greenspan, who will be leaving the
Isthmus soon.
They will take up residence in
Liberty, N.Y., where Rabbi Green-
span will assume a civilian pulpit.
The JWB Committee of Manage-
ment requests that all friends in
Panama and the Canal Zone take
this opportunity to bid farewell to
Rabbi Greenspan and his wife.

SOMETHING TO CHEER FOR-These lovelies are
members of the College cheerleading team who are now
selling booster tickets to help pay their way to Pheiffer
College in Misenheimar, N.C., where they will attend
a cheerleading clinic from August 9 to 14. The purpose
is to learn new techniques in cheerleading, promote the
school spirit in sports and enter in competition with

M. H. Thatcher To Get

First Gold Medallion

The Governor has approved the granting of the first gold medallion for
Honorary Public Service to Maurice H. Thatcher for more than 60 years
of conspicuous service to both the administration of the Canal and in
assisting all Governors in carrying out their important responsibilities.
This highest recognition by Canal organization was prompted because
of Thatcher's invaluable assistance in securing enactment of the new Cash
Relief bill signed by President Nixon on July 24, 1970.
The bill amends the Canal Zone Code to provide cost-of-living adjust-
ments in cash relief payments to certain former Canal employees. Cash
Relief beneficiaries, therefore, will receive in the future the same cost-of-
living adjustment as received by all U.S. Civic Service retirees. On August 1,
1970, for example, they will receive a 5.6 percent cost-of-living adjustment.
The bill also authorizes the Governor to pay cash relief to the widow of
any former employee who, until time of his death, was receiving Cash
Relief under the Act of July 8, 1937.

New Features Are Added

To Canal Awards Program

Leaders in Government, the Isth-
mian community, civic, labor, and
religious organizations as well as
voluntary organizations will be
asked in October to nominate can-
didates for the Panama Canal Pub-
lic Service Award.
The award, a certificate and either
a gold, silver, or bronze medallion,
was established last fall as part of
the Canal organization's Incentive
Awards Program.
Nominations will be accepted in
December and a public awards cere-
mony will be held in February.
Details of the program were re-
cently announced by the Personnel
The award may be granted to any
Isthmian resident, organizations,
and Government employees for vol-
untary and exceptional contributions
or services made to the Isthmian
community or the Canal organiza-

various colleges in the United States. This will be the
first time that the whole team will attend. Last year
Darleen Woodruff and Janet Hunt attended the clinic
at Pheiffer. Jacque Hunt, captain of the team, is center.
Others clockwise are: Margaret Engelke, Pat Perry,
Marilynn Hare, and Rachel Rice.

The highest award will be the
Panama Canal Public Service Award
-Third Degree, in the form of a
certificate and a gold medallion. The
award will be presented by the
Canal Zone Governor and will rec-
ognize not more than three persons
or organizations for .their outstand-
ing contributions or services during
the past year.
The second highest award, a cer-
tificate and a silver medallion, will
be given annually by the Lieutenant
Governor to not more than six per-
sons or organizations for outstanding
A courageous or heroic act by an
Isthmian resident is automatically
considered appropriate for this level
of award and is not considered in
the limitation of the number of
awards which is authorized.
The third highest award is the
First Degree. It will include a cer-
tificate and bronze medallion. This
award is also presented annually but
by bureau directors or equivalent
management officials recognizing up
to 12 individuals or organizations
for their outstanding contributions
or services during the year.
Nominations will be reviewed by
the vice chairman of the Incentive
Awards Committee. Categories for
the three degrees are:
1. Those acts or services having
Isthmian-wide impact or impact on
the Canal organizations.
2. Acts or services benefiting bu-
reaus or staff units; heroic acts; acts
or services having a sectional im-
pact, i.e., Pacific or Atlantic districts.
3. Includes benefits to the Canal
divisions, and for acts or services
having sectional community impact,
i.e., impact on a townsite, a specific
military installation, etc.
Among the criteria for the award
is exemplary service in an advisory
capacity to an official or quasi-
official of the Canal organization or
community program, voluntary or-
ganization, project, and committee;
direct assistance to the organization
by actions or useful ideas in elimi-
nating or minimizing problems and
contributing to the betterment of
the Isthmian community.

Joseph McHugh,


Chief, Retires
Joseph B. McHugh who has been
with the Procurement Division of
the Panama Canal, first in New York
and recently in New Orleans, for the
past 20 years, will retire today. He
has been Chief of the Procurement
Division since 1958.
On the eve of his retirement,
McHugh received a special achieve-
ment award for superior job per-
formance presented in the New
Orleans Procurement Division by
L. A. Ferguson, Supply and Com-
munity Service Director for the Pan-
ama Canal.
The award, accompanied by a
check for $350, was made in re-
cognition of his consistently superior
job performance since his appoint-
ment to the position in 1958.
A native of New Haven, Conn.,
McHugh joined the New York office
of the Canal organization in 1950
as a procurement agent. He was pro-
moted to supervising agent in 1954
and to his present position in 1958.
He was transferred to New Orleans
when the Panama Canal office was
moved there from New York.
He plans to make his future home
in Florida.

Letter Writing

The Canal Zone Chapter of the
American Red Cross is reminding
U.S. citizens to continue their efforts
in the massive letter writing cam-
paign to the Government of North
Vietnam demanding that it honor its
pledge to adhere to the Geneva
Convention in the treatment of U.S.
war prisoners.
According to the American Red
Cross News Service, the last two
campaigns and other Unted States
efforts have been so effective that
three times as much mail has been
received from U.S. prisoners in
North Vietnam as in the previous
5 years; approximately 320 Amer-
icans have been identified as pris-
oners of the North Vietnamese as
compared with scarcely 100 a year
ago; and Hanoi has indicated pris-
oners may write and receive one
letter a month and that families may
send relief parcels once every other
The campaign is designed to get
every American to sit down and
write Hanoi a letter asking the
Government to honor its Geneva
Convention commitment. The let-
ters, which take 30 cents in postage
per 3 ounce from the Canal Zone,
should be addressed directly to the
President of the Democratic Repub-
lic of Vietnam, Hanoi, North Viet-

The Continental Singers and or-
chestra, the world touring musical
group from Southern California, will
return to the Canal Zone next month
as a part of their 1970 tour.
They will appear Friday, Au-
gust 7, at 8:30 p.m., in the Balboa
Theater; Saturday, August 8, at
7:30 p.m., in the Cristobal High
School Auditorium; and Sunday,
August 9, at 8:15 p.m. in the Cu-
rundu Junior High School Cafeto-
rium. Admission to these perform-
ances will be free.
The touring organization is made
up of 24 singers and instrumental-
ists selected by audition from all
across the United States. The major-
ity of these young people (ages 17
to 24) are professional musicians or
are majoring in some area of music
in various colleges and universities
around the country. Since 1965 the
Continental Singers have been tour-
ing western Europe, the Orient, the
Caribbean countries, and parts of
South America, as well as through-
out the United States.
They have performed on many
television shows at local television
stations around the country and
were the regular music for a TV
series entitled, "The World of

Youth." The group has made six
longplay record albums on the
Word and Light labels entitled,
"Soul," "Livel," "In Concert,"
"There's More To Life," "Life Is
A Symphony," "Sing A Happy
Song," and "Sing A Song Along,"

The Continental Singers are di-
rected by Byron Spradlin, com-
poser, accomplished pianist, guitar-
ist, and French horn player. Trained
in the University of California, he
was chosen to represent, the Uni-
versity in the Education Abroad
program in Tokyo, Japan. He also
qualified for the coveted title of
"All-American" at the NCAA Na-
tional Track Meet in the Steeple-
Chase event.
This popular group may be re-
membered for their outstanding and
well-received performances while in
the Canal Zone and Panama City

The National Safety Council
Award of Merit was presented to the

month in recognition of its note-
worthy safety performance during

The Atlantic Art Set will give an

"Little Gallery" August 1-15, fea-
turing the work of June Boyland,

Ship Safety
(Continued from p. 1)

When a vessel arrives at the
anchorage with deck cargo, the
boarding officer reports to the Port
Captain's office whether it has ade-
quate catwalks or other safe access
to working areas. If not, an assistant
port captain, accompanied by the
Marine Bureau safety representa-
tive, boards the vessel, night or day,
and makes a first hand inspection to
determine the measures necessary
for safety and whether the vessel is
safe to transit at night. The ship
awaits transit as necessary until
these measures are carried out. In
particularly serious cases, the vessel
is denied transit until the cargo is
The Panama Canal requirements
for safety of personnel when deck
cargo is carried correspond in gen-
eral to U.S. Coast Guard regulations
and to those of the British Ministry
of Transport.
The Marine Director recently sent
shipping agents a reminder of the
standing safety regulations concern-
ing deck cargo and cautioned that
failure to comply with the require-
ments may subject vessels to delay
in transit until unsafe conditions are

An unpleasant task done with a
smile seems to take less time.

Arguing is the most difficult form
of conversation, for you are required
to know your own mind.

Lt. Gov. R. S. Hartline presented
the National Safety Council award
to Capt. A. L. Gallin, Marine Di-
rector, during a special ceremony in
the board room of the Balboa Port
Captain's Office. He noted that, ac-
cording to records, this was the first
time that the Marine Bureau had
earned such an award.
The award was earned through a
52 percent reduction in disabling in-
juries and an 84 percent reduction
of severity accidents. The Lieu-
tenant Governor congratulated the
members of the bureau and said that
so far this year, the safety record
was better than for the first 6
months of last year.
The commendation to the Office
of the Port Captain in Balboa was
made by Captain Gallin to Capt.
Andrew Stohrer, Balboa Port Cap-
tain. The commendation to the In-
dustrial Division was presented to
Carl O. Riggs, Jr., Chief of the In-
dustrial Division.
Both units marked the completion
of 1 million man hours of work with-
out a lost time injury. This was the
first time that the employees of
either of these branches had accu-
mulated such a safety record.


Lewis B. Moore

Selected for

NYC Project

Lewis B. Moore, who was retired
from the Panama Canal in 1953 as
Supply and Community Service Di-
rector, is one of 15 engineers se-
lected by Parsons & Co. of Los
Angeles to design a sewage treat-
ment plant for the city of New York,
according to news received by
friends on the Isthmus. The plant is
to be built on the site of the former
Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Moore, a member of a prominent
Isthmian family, is a well-known
engineer and has been involved
with a number of engineering pro-
jects in the Far East, Korea, Central
America, and Colombia since he left
the Panama Canal.
His first position after retirement
was with the Korean Government
on the reconstruction of South
Korea. He then spent several years
working in Southeast Asian coun-
tries. Recently, he and his wife, the
former Evelyn Rigby, have been
living in Claremont, Calif.
Moore was born in Chicago but
came to the Isthmus with his family
as a small boy.
He attended the Canal Zone
schools and was employed by the-
Canal organization in 1916. He held
various positions in the Municipal
Engineering Division, the Executive
Planning Staff, and the Supply Di-
vision. He was Supply and Com-
munity Service Director from 1950
until his retirement.

The Canal Zone's newest yacht club has a flag which is displayed by Mrs.
Loraine Smith, wife of Commodore G. H. Smith and Charles Gordon, dock-
master of the new Coco Solo Yacht Club. It is a white flag with a lone
green palm or "Coco Solo." Below, some of the yachts already tied up at
the new Yacht Club. In the foreground is Commodore Smith's "M'Lady."

Atlantic Side Mariners

Building New Yacht Club

A do-it-yourself yacht club is in
sight for Coco Solo.
A yacht club that has space for
22 small boats and seven moorings
is no small undertaking even with
all the help that the residents the
Atlantic side Canal Zone communi-
ties can muster. Everything-includ-
ing time-is being borrowed, liber-
ated, or donated.
The site of the project is the for-
mer Navy submarine base, on Man-
zanillo Bay, on the northern side of
Coco Solo.

an, director of Coco Solo Iospital; Lee Wong, phar-
macist at Coco Solo; and Col. Robert W. Green, Canal
Zone Health Director. Agee has been employed by the
Health Bureau as a pharmacist since 1951 and has been
chief pharmacist at Coco Solo since 1961.

Although the Atlantic side yachts-
men and their families have been
working less than a year, the 22
slips and moorings are completed.
The work is being done on the old
Navy building which will house a
clubroom for members and an office
for the club officers. Eventually
there will be repair facilities for
small boats.
What the 28 members of the new
yacht club need to do now is to
build a pier and complete the break-
water which gives their small boats
some protection from heavy swells
that come into the area from Limon
Bay at certain times of the year.
Already there are some 600 truck-
loads of material in the breakwater
which eventually will be about 100
feet long. In the deep channel, once
used by the U.S. Navy as a deperm-
ing station for submarines, there are
75 pinewood piles driven into the
slip to form a mooring area for
small boats. The piledriver was bor-
rowed too-on a sort of lend-lease
The decision to build a new yacht
club on the Atlantic side was made
when the present yacht club at Cris-
tobal began to get crowded. Also it
was out of the way for the yachting
families who live in Margarita and
Coco Solo.
The new club is a family organi-
zation-wives as well as husbands
can hold office and be equal part-

Otorgan Maximo Honor

A Maurice H. Thatcher
El Gobernador ha aprobado otorgar el primer medall6n de
oro por Servicios Piblicos Honorarios al Honorable Maurice
H. Thatcher, por mis de 60 afios de conspicuous servicios tanto
sirviendo en la administraci6n del Canal como ayudando a
todos los Gobernadores a cumplir con sus importantes res-
ponsabilidades. Este reconocimiento, el mis alto de la organi-
zaci6n del Canal, se debe a la inapreciable ayuda que ha
brindado el Sr. Thatcher en la promulgaci6n de la nueva ley
de Compensaci6n en Efectivo firm el Presidente Richard M.
Nixon el 24 de julio de 1970.
La ley enmienda el C6digo de la Zona del Canal con el fin
de proporcionar ajustes por alza en el costo de la vida en los
pagos de compensaci6n en efectivo a ciertos antiguos emplea-
dos de la Compafiia-Gobierno. Los beneficiaries de Compen-
saci6n en Efectivo recibiran por lo tanto, en el future, los
mismos ajustes por alza en el costo de la vida que reciban
todos los jubilados del Servicio Civil de los Estados Unidos.
El 10 de agosto de 1970, por ejemplo, recibirin un ajuste de
5.6 por ciento por alza en el costo de la vida. La ley autoriza
tambi6n al Gobernador a pagar compensaci6n en efectivo a
la viuda de cualquier ex empleado que, hasta la hora de su
muerte, recibia Compensaci6n en Efectivo de acuerdo con el
Decreto del 8 de julio de 1937.
Con la aprobaci6n de otorgar el primer medall6n de oro al
Sr. Thatcher, se le ha dado al nuevo Premio por Servicio
Piblico el impetu y prestigio que merece.

Marina Gana el Premio del

Consejo Nal. de Seguridad

El Certificado de M6rito del Con-
sejo Nacional de Seguridad fue otor-
gado este mes a la Direcci6n de
Marina del Canal de PanamA en re-
conocimiento a su notable desem-
pefio en lo que se refiere a seguri-
dad, durante el afio 1969.
El Vicegobernador R. S. Hartline
entreg6 el certificado del Consejo
Nacional de Seguridad al Capitin
A. L. Gallin, Director de Marina,
durante una ceremonia especial que
tuvo lugar en el sal6n de reuniones
de la Capitania del Puerto de Bal-

El premio fue otorgado debido a
una disminuci6n del 52 por ciento
en accidents causantes de incapa-
cidad y a un 84 por ciento de reduc-
ci6n en la severidad de los mismos.
La nota de encomio a la Capita-
nia del Puerto de Balboa fue entre-
gada por el Capitin Gallin al Capi-
tin del Puerto de Balboa, Andrew
Stohrer. La de la Divisi6n Industrial
fue entregada a Carl O. Riggs, Jr.,
Jefe de la Divisi6n Industrial.
Ambas unidades lograron com-
pletar 1 mill6n de horas hombre de
trabajo sin lesiones causantes de
p6rdida de tiempo.

mend6 para este premio, debido a que, durante 10 afios
y bajo condiciones de sumo peligro, los hombres a su
cuidado ejecutaron sus labores sin tener un solo acci-
dente causante de incapacidad. La cerenionia tuvo
lugar en la oficina del Jefe de la Divisi6n de Navega-
ci6n en Balboa. Otros contramaestres de Crist6bal reci-
bieron tambi6n premios, cuya fotografia publicaremos.

Se Busca M s Seguridad en

Trabajo de los Pasabarcos

Como parte de su esfuerzo con-
tinuado por proporcionar acceso se-
guro a los barcos y condiciones de
trabajo sin peligro para sus emplea-
dos, la Direcci6n de Marina ha pues-
to en prictica una inspecci6n mis
several de las naves que transportan
carga sobre cubierta. El prop6sito
de esta inspecci6n es garantizar que
las Areas donde deben trabajar los
pasabarcos sean seguras, y que exis-
ta un acceso seguro para abordar las
naves lo mismo que seguridad en las
condiciones de trabajo a bordo.
Muchas de las naciones maritimas
tienen reglamentos adecuados que
miran por la seguridad de la tripu-
laci6n de las naves que llevan carga
sobre cubierta. Pero algunas no los
tienen y ocasionalmente se presen-
tan, solicitando trinsito, naves con
carga sobre cubierta sumamente mal
Otros barcos, especialmente los
madereros, tienen espacios no pro-
tegidos en la carga, que pueden con-
vertirse en trampas mortales para
los incautos, que inadvertidamente
puedan llegar a ellos, especialmente
de noche.
Cuando una embarcaci6n llega
con carga sobre cubierta al anclaje,
el funcionario de abordaje informa
a la Capitania de Puerto si tiene pa-
sarelas adecuadas u otra clase de
acceso seguro a las Areas de trabajo.
Si no existen, un ayudante del capi-
tin del puerto, acompafiado por un
representante de seguridad de la
Direcci6n de Marina, aborda la
nave, ya sea de dia o de noche, y
verifica una inspecci6n de primera
mano para determinar las medidas
necesarias de seguridad y para de-
cidir si la nave es lo suficientemente
segura como para transitar de noche.
Si es necesario, se hace a la nave es-
perar hasta que todas las medidas
de seguridad hayan sido puestas en
practice. En los casos particular-
mente series, se niega el trinsito a
la embarcaci6n hasta que la carga
sea nuevamente estibada.
Los requisitos de seguridad que

el Canal de PanamA exige para su
personal, cuando se transport carga
sobre cubierta, correspondent en ge-
neral a los reglamentos de la Guar-
dia de Costa de Estados Unidos y a
los del Ministerio de Transporte de
Gran Bretafia.
El Director de Marina reciente-
mente envi6 a los agents navieros
un recordatorio sobre los reglamen-
tos de seguridad vigentes, en lo que
respect a carga sobre cubierta, y
les advirti6 que cualquier falla en
cumplir con dichos requisitos puede
demorar el trinsito de las naves has-
ta que las condiciones inseguras sean
