Vol. IX, No. 23 More Than 56 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, November 20, 1970

What would a traditional Thanksgiving Day be without a turkey, frozen
or otherwise? "Not much," say these two youngsters as they test the weight
of this big 22-pound bird in the Balboa supermarket. Struggling with the
main Thanksgiving course are: Jennifer Peel whose father, Joe B. Peel,
is with the U.S. Embassy, and Michael Townsend, son of Ellis E. Town-
send, pastor of the First Assemblies of God Church, Ancon. Jennifer and
Michael are both pupils at Balboa Elementary School.

New Minibike


Is Approved
The Panama Canal Personnel
Manual has been amended to re-
strict motor vehicles, more parti-
cularly minibikes, from operating in
certain areas of the Canal Zone.
Gov. W. P. Leber, with the con-
currence of the Civic Councils,
signed the amendment into law on
November 16.
The restriction reflects the in-
creasing popularity of the minibikes
that in some areas have created
safety hazards and nuisances be-
cause of noise and their being
driven on grassy areas.
Under Chapter 737 entitled Em-
ployee Housing, the amended sec-
tion now states in general that motor
vehicles minibikess, etc.) shall not
be operated in areas adjacent to or
in the vicinity of living quarters; on
lawns adjacent to Government
owned or private buildings; or on
public sidewalks or in open or
wooded areas within a townsite.
This does not apply to the lawful
operation of motor vehicles by li-
censed drivers between garages or
parking areas, public streets, and
driveways in areas specially de-
Offenders or their parents could
lose Canal Zone housing privileges.
Certain areas in the Canal Zone
have been set aside for riding mini-
bikes; these areas are posted and
clearly marked and future sites are



Is Announced
This year's interdenominational
Thanksgiving Day observance on
the Pacific side of the Canal Zone
will be held at the Balboa High
School Auditorium at 10 a.m.,
Thursday, November 26.
Clergymen representing the faiths
on the Isthmus will offer prayers and
read from Scripture and the com-
bined choirs of St. Joseph's Church
will lead the singing of familiar
Gov. W. P. Leber will read the
President's proclamation.
The Thanksgiving observance
program also includes special music
composed and arranged by Peter
Stephenson which will be presented
by instrumentalists from both the
military and civilian communities.
(Continued on p. 4)

Rent on Canal housing for U.S.
citizens will be increased effective
January 10, Gov. W. P. Leber an-
nounced at last week's executive
session of the U.S. Civic Councils at
Balboa Heights.
The new schedule of rates is on
a sliding scale with satisfactory
quarters raised 8 percent and the
marginal units 4 percent. The units
classified as unsatisfactory will not
be changed and a few units, such
as the newest apartments at Gorgas,
will be unchanged because they
were figured at the new rates.
New schedules will be available
for reference at Housing Offices
after November 30.
Governor Leber mentioned stu-

Health Insurance Rates

Going Down in January

More than 95 percent of Govern-
ment employees on the Isthmus will
reap substantial savings from the
sharply reduced new 1971 health
insurance premium rates under the
Canal Zone Benefit Plan. The new
rates will result in an annual savings
of $44.72 for a self and family en-
rollment and $17.16 for a self only
A number of changes will be
made in the four health benefit
plans in which most Canal organi-
zation employees are enrolled. Re-

Ronald L. Seeley Named

Selective Service Chief

Ronald L. Seeley, Chief, Em-
ployee-Management Relations Staff,
Personnel Bureau, has been ap-
pointed State Director of Selective
Service in the Canal Zone, and
Richard D. Morgan, Assistant Super-
visor, Marketing Branch, Supply
Division, has been named deputy,
according to an announcement by
the Director of Selective Service,
Washington, D.C.
Seeley has been deputy since
April of this year and succeeds
Bruce G. Sanders, Jr., who has re-
signed in anticipation of his retire-
ment from the Canal organization
early next year after more than 35
years' service, all with the Customs
Division. Sanders has served the
Selective Service System in the
Canal Zone for more than 16 years.
Seeley, who joined the Canal's
Personnel Bureau in 1957, was born
on the Isthmus. He began his Canal
career as a personnel assistant and
has held several positions within the
Personnel Bureau. In May of 1968,
he was appointed a member of the
Canal Zone Board of Appeals by
the Secretary of the Army. The
Board of Appeals meets periodically
to consider classification of appeals
from employees of all Canal Zone
Morgan came to the Canal orga-
nization in August 1965 from Eu-
rope where he had served with the
U.S. Army in Germany and Italy.
He began his Canal service as a posi-
tion classification specialist in the
Personnel Bureau, transferring to

the Supply Division in May 1969.
Both appointments became effec-
tive November 1.

cent legislation increased the Gov-
ernment's share of the cost of pre-
miums under the Federal' Em-
ployees Health Benefits program and
made it possible to reduce premium
costs for the majority of enrolled
employees, starting in January 1971.
The new rates per pay period
under the Canal Zone Benefit Plan,
which are possible because the U.S.
Government is paying a matching
amount to the insurance company,
are as follows: self only, $2.34, and
self and family, $5.82. The existing
rates under this plan are: self only
$3, and self and family, $7.54.
Most employees enrolled under
Blue Cross, Aetna, and AFGE plans
also will benefit from the increased
Government contribution.
Following is a brief summary of
the changes that will occur in the
four plans.
(Mutual of Omaha)
Changes in benefits:
Major Hospital and Surgical Ex-
pense Benefits: The maximum pay-
able for any one period of confine-
ment is increased for $20,000 to
Outpatient Expense Benefits: Ben-
efits for accidental injury, for diag-
nostic procedures for sickness, and
for physical therapy for accidental
injury and sickness, are each in-
creased from $75 to $150.
Changes in Rates: Biweekly pay-
roll deductions will be decreased
from $3 to $2.34 for a self only
enrollment and from $7.54 to $5.82
for a self and family enrollment.

Changes in benefits:
High and Low Options
Basic Surgical-Medical Benefits:
Benefits will be payable for rabies
shots without regard to the 72-hour
limitation on emergency treatment.
Benefits will be payable for in-
hospital medical care rendered con-
currently by different doctors when
the Carrier determines that such
care is required due to the medical
complexity of the patient's condi-

dies of rentals by the General Ac-
counting Office and by the military
services and the survey of Main-
tenance Division operations made
by Booz, Allen & Hamilton. He
pointed out that these studies have
not produced anything which would
change the present policy of basing
rents on housing costs. The in-
creased costs of operation and main-
tenance of housing must be recov-
ered in higher rents.
The major factor in the cost spiral
is wages. The Governor said that
since July 1968, when the present
rents were set, the average wage
paid to employees has risen 17 per-
cent for U.S. citizens and 25 per-
cent for non-U.S. citizens. Labor
costs represent well over 50 percent
of the overall cost of operation and
maintenance of quarters. Other
housing costs, such as prices of ma-
terials, also have gone up.
There will be a comparable in-
crease in the rentals for housing in
the Latin American communities
but the method of application will
be slightly different.
Dr. Russell Annis asked if there
is any hope for new housing. The
Governor said that he had no author-
ization at this time to go ahead with
any new houses, but plans are being
made to make sites available for em-
ployees who wish to provide a home
at their own expense. Dr. Annis
asked if it would be include bache-
lors, and the Governor said that this
could be worked out.
The Governor discussed a Youth
Council request that a gathering
place for those who are 18 or older
be established where beer can be
served. He said there was a possi-
bility of fixing up old railroad cars
for this purpose, setting them on
dead end tracks where a platform
can be made for outdoor dancing.
The work of renovating and paint-
ing will be done by the young
people who will be responsible also
for operating them and keeping
them fit places for young people to
congregate. The police and health

Auto License

Plates To Go

On Sale Jan. 4
Canal Zone license plates for
1971 will go on sale January 4 and
continue through February 26. This
is a change from previous years
when the plates were issued De-
cember 1 through December 31.
Applications will be distributed
during the last week in December.
As in past years, a drawing will be
held for numbers 21 through 999
on January 15. Persons wishing to

cluded in the low drawing can pur-
chase their license plates beginning
with number 1,000 on January 4,
on a first come, first served basis.
Vehicle inspection also will be
conducted during the months of
January and February and it is sug-

their license plates prior to having
their vehicles inspected.

Scout Camp

Some 440 Boy Scouts and adult
leaders, representing 53 patrols and
20 troops from both sides of the
Isthmus turned out the past week-
end for the Canal Zone Bov Scout
Council's 1970 fall Camporee.
The semiannual camporee pro-
vides local Scouts with an oppor-
tunity to demonstrate their Scout-
ing skills and it means plenty of fun
and fellowship, camping outdoors,
sleeping in tents and cooking their
own meals. Each unit was judged
by adult leaders on its preselected
demonstration and other categories
of activities covering the weekend
outing. The competition, however,
was against a standard with each
patrol scoring as high as possible
rather than against each other.
The Camporee's busy program
began at 4:30 p.m., Friday, when
units arrived at Camp Chagres, lo-
cated near Madden Dam, and went
to their assigned campsites where
they set up camp. This was followed
by dinner and though Scouts were
permitted to bring a sack lunch for
Friday evening, it was strictly a
matter of cooking for themselves at
the campsite for the remainder of
the Camporee.
The big day was Saturday which
started with "rise and shine" at 6:30
a.m., followed by the flag raising
and breakfast. At 9 a.m., the Scouts
began preparing their demonstra-
tions which each patrol was ex-
pected to take part in. Sunday was
taken up with flag raising, breakfast,
church services, field sports, and
breaking camp in preparation for
the departure.
The choice of demonstration sub-
jects was broad and covered such
items as knots, map reading, com-
pass, knife and axe skills, tracking,
cooking, first aid, fire building, lash-
ing, shelters, jungle survival tech-
niques, and eatable plants, to men-
tion only a few. The demonstrations
were judged on the basis of original-
ity, audience participation, methods
of presentation and degree of diffi-
In addition to the demonstrations,
Scouts were judged on the basis of
three separate inspections made of
individual campsites. The first in-
spection, conducted on arrival, dealt
with packs, patrol equipment and
personal equipment. The second,

Lorenzo Alvarado R. and Sall R.
Caballero, launch operator and sea-
man respectively, aboard the Pan-

(Continued from p. 1)
authorities will exercise surveillance
to insure that proper standards of
sanitation and conduct are main-
tained. Plans are to set up the first
in Balboa and others will follow if
the project proves successful. Ernest
Reinhold suggested the first one be
set up on the Atlantic side. The
Governor said it might be worked
out to try the project on both sides
of the Isthmus simultaneously.
The Governor also announced a
change in the method of supplying
fresh milk to Canal employees. The
fresh milk now being sold in retail
stores is purchased in raw bulk from
Panama dairies and is pasteurized
and packaged at Mount Hope.
This contract for bulk milk will
expire soon, and the suppliers will
furnish pasteurized milk in pack-
ages, as they now supply the Army.
The Canal's supply will be in a dis-
tinctively marked container.
Governor Leber assured every-
one that the milk will continue to
be of Grade A quality equal in every
way to the milk now on sale. It will
come solely from farms which are
regularly inspected and approved
by Canal veterinarians, who also
will be present during the process-



To Be Formed

The organization of a home find-
ing committee to encourage different
community groups to work together
in the recruitment of foster homes
for children in the Canal Zone will
be discussed in meetings to be held
on both sides of the Isthmus No-
vember 24 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
One will be held in the Cafe-
torium of the Curundu Junior High
School and the other in the Audito-
rium of the Cristobal Junior-Senior
High School.
Presidents of the various civic or-
ganizations in the Canal Zone and
the professional members of the
Foster Care Service have been in-
The meeting was announced by
Mrs. Georgina C. de Young, Chief
of the Social Services Staff of the
Personnel Bureau and a member of
the subcommittee on Foster Home
She stressed the fact that foster
home recruitment requires the
efforts of the many civic organiza-
tions in the Canal Zone that have
demonstrated an interest in the
social problems of their communi-
Foster parents, couples who take
care of children who must be placed
away from their homes for various
reasons, can do a great deal for a
child through patience and under-
It has been found, Mrs. Young
said, that often foster children also
require the help of doctors, nurses,
social workers, school counselors,
and psychiatrists. These professional
workers who form a Foster Care
Service are known as counselors.
They not only evaluate potential
foster homes but will be available
to help foster parents.
Since good teamwork between
the foster parents and the counselors
is necessary to make the program a
success, Mrs. Young said that foster
parents should not hesitate to call
the counselors on any problem they
have in relation to school, health,
special needs, or problems of rela-
tions with natural parents.

Remember when you could walk
into a five and ten-cent store and
buy something for a dime?

ing and packaging operation at the
plant. The change is expected to be
made about March 1. Prices will
remain unchanged.
The Supply Division processing
plant will continue to produce re-
constituted milk and other products
just as they do now. These are all
wholesome products, nutritionally
equal to the fresh milk equivalents
and considerably less expensive.
Chocolate reconstituted milk is al-
ready available and the Mount
Hope plant is experimenting with
other flavors.
Another item brought up by the
Governor was the changes in the
system of charging for hospital in-
patient care of employees and their
dependents. These changes are
caused for the most part by a
change in the health insurance pro-
gram for non-U.S. citizens. They
will become effective January 1.
All charges for inpatient care will
be at the Group A rate, without
reference to the actual wages of
the employee. A single rate will
apply to beds in wards, semiprivate
rooms and private rooms without
bath, but not to private rooms with
bath. The single rate will be $25 per
day as compared to the present
$23.50 in wards and $26 and $28
in rooms. The rate for private rooms
with bath will be $29 per day.
There was considerable discussion
of the minibike problem and Cap-
tain Reinheimer played a tape he
had made in his living room in Mar-
garita demonstrating the noise level
caused by the use of the meadow
near his home. He also pointed out
that the ruts caused by minibikes
were becoming breeding places for
mosquitoes. Mrs'. Reinheinier men-
tioned that the birds had deserted
the area because of the noise and
this had increased the insect prob-
Dr. Annis suggested the elimina-
tion of Halloween "trick or treat"
in the Canal Zone noting that hordes
of teenagers and older youths were
becoming a nuisance and making it
unsafe for the younger children.
Mrs. Darleen Ashby, suggested
having parties and, Mrs. Barbara
Scott, suggested UNICEF collec-
tions be made in the afternoon.
Reinhold said there is a shortage
of doctors at Coco Solo Hospital.
The Governor said that additional
full-time doctors are being recruited,
and additional part-time doctors had
been hired to work the 12 to 4 a.m.
shift and that doctors are being
brought over from Gorgas Hospital
to assist in special cases.
Captain Reinheimer stated that
he thinks the SPILLWAY could be
more interesting. Governor Leber
said that he is always happy to have
suggestions concerning the SPILL-
REVIEW. Mrs. Ashby suggested that
the SPILLWAY be distributed by
being put in the mail boxes of the
employees. She said that many
wives do not see it because their
husbands do not bring it home from
the office.
Richard Bjorneby, pointed out
that 551 people were present at the
Coco Solo Theater for the showing
of The Golden Isthmus which was
presented recently by the Panama
Canal Information Office. He cited
this as evidence of the support At-
lantic side residents give to activi-
ties and suggested they be included
in more such activities.

Sweet Adelines
Rummage Sale
Crossroads Chapter, Sweet Ade-
lines, Inc., will sponsor a Rummage
Sale on November 24 at St. Mary's
Episcopal Church, Rainbow City.
The sale will begin at 8 a.m. and

Hogares Substitutos

La gente siempre se interest por
los nifios. Muchas personas no saben
que los niiios son colocados en ho-
gares substitutes y no tienen idea de
lo que es un hogar substitute. No
obstante, la gente por lo general se
interest en conocer el funcionamien-
to de los hogares substitutes.
El reclutamiento de personas que
puedan ofrecer hogares substitutes
require los esfuerzos de muchas or-
ganizaciones civicas de la Zona del
Canal que han demostrado interns
en los problems sociales de sus co-
munidades. Un Comit6 de Consecu-
ci6n de Hogares Substitutos que re-
presente a las comunidades en sus
diferentes grupos religiosos, racia-
les, sociales y civicos podrA alentar
a otros grupos de las diferentes co-
munidades a laborar conjuntamente
en el reclutamiento de hogares para
los nifios que necesiten este servicio.
El Subcomit6 de Necesidades de
Hogares Substitutos ha enviado una
invitaci6n a los Presidentes de las
organizaciones civicas de la Zona
del Canal para que asistan a una
reuni6n en el Cafetorium de la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Curundiu y en

el auditorio de la Escuela Secunda-
ria de Crist6bal el martes 24 de no-
viembre, de 7:30 a 9 p.m. El objeto
de esta reuni6n es former un Comi-
t6 de Consecuci6n de Hogares
Los padres substitutes son pare-
jas que cuidan a los nifios que por
diferentes razones tienen que ser
alejados de sus hogares. Los nifios
pueden necesitar un hogar substi-
tuto durante 1 6 2 semanas, debido
a que la madre est6 enferma o pue-
de necesitarlo de 1 a 6 meses debi-
do a otros problems familiares. Un
hogar substitute debe proporcionar
comodidad fisica razonable a los
nifios. Los padres substitutes deben
tener paciencia, comprensi6n y ge-
nerosidad de espiritu.
La experiencia ha demostrado
que buenos padres substitutes pue-
den a menudo hacer un gran bien al
niflo. Tambi6n se ha demostrado,
sin embargo, que algunas veces un

solo de los padres substitutes sino

Mauricio Dogue Continua

Triunfando en New York

Hace 3 afios, llegaba a New York
a estudiar arte un joven colonense:
Mauricio Dogu6.
Lleg6 a Nueva York en 1968, con
una sola obsesi6n: lograr escalar la
fama por medio de la microescultu-
ra en tiza. Y lo ha logrado. Ya ha
aparecido su nombre, no s61o en el
Boletin del Museo de Brooklyn, sino
en los peri6dicos neoyorquinos THE
NEWS. Podemos decir que Mauricio
ha triunfado y un panamefio mas ha
puesto en alto el nombre de la pa-
tria, esta vez en una rama artistic
a la que muy pocos se han dedicado.
El Boletin del Museo de Brooklyn
dice que Mauricio Dogue, a los 22
afios de edad, logr6 ser uno de los
10 artists de la gran ciudad de los
rascacielos que presentaron una ex-
posici6n llamada Multi Media 70.
"Mauricio present tres exposicio-
nes extraordinarias, dice el Boletin,
'Campeones de la Humanidad,' com-
puesta de microesculturas en tiza de
los grandes lideres del mundo, entire
ellos Martin Luther King, John F.
Kennedy, Nehri y Abraham Lin-
coln; 'Comunidad'-escultura abs-
tracta en tiza, y 'Tomillo,' composi-
ci6n abstract en metal y tiza".
El joven Dogu6 comenz6 sus mi-
croesculturas cuando todavia estaba
en secundaria en el Colegio Abel
Bravo, de su ciudad natal. Su afici6n
le vali6 una suspension de una se-
mana en la escuela, pero un afio

La Administraci6n Federal de
Drogas y Alimentos, ha prohibido el
uso de tetracloruro de carbon en

Las investigaciones llevadas a cabo
entire 1968 y fecha reciente, han de-
mostrado que los efectos t6xicos del
tetracloruro de carbon estin mis
alli de las precauciones que pudie-
ran sugerirse para su uso seguro.

despu6s, su primera exposici6n fue
organizada por el mismo professor
que lo habia suspendido.
En 1968 entr6 a la Escuela de
Arte del Museo de Brooklyn, como
estudiante becado y estudi6 escul-
tura en madera con Tosho Odate. Al
siguiente verano, Dogue ensefi6 en
un taller de arte para nifios en el
Museo y tambi6n ha expuesto sus
obras en varias bibliotecas de Nueva
Sus padres, residents en la ciu-
dad de Col6n, son Felipe Dogu6,
empleado de la Divisi6n Industrial
en Mount Hope, y Sra. Ruby de
Dogue. Un tio, Alberto H. Dogu6,
es oficinista en la Secci6n de N6mi-
nas de la Divisi6n de Terminales en

apreciada por la comunidad, acaba
de ser elegido representante en el

Roland Carter, una cara muy fami-

Canal de Panama que han entrado
a servir la via interoceanica durante
los iltimos 30 afios, es el oficinista v
recepcionista del centro de exame-
nes fisicos que se exigen a los que
ingresan a la familiar del Canal.
Pero su servicio se remonta a 6 afios
antes, pues entr6 cuando apenas con-
taba 18 afios, como mensajero de
esa misma dependencia del Hospi-
tal Gorgas, donde ha prestado ser-
vicios durante mis de 36 afios. Dice
que el centro de examenes fisicos
ha cambiado much de lugar. Re-
cuerda que en una ocasi6n estuvo
donde ahora se encuentra el Peque-
iio Teatro de Anc6n. Tambidn dice
que en su trabajo le ha tocado aten-
der a todos los directors de la Com-
pafnia del Canal y a los ejecutivos
de la via interoceanica. "Todos son
magnificas personas, lo mismo que
los demis empleados", dice con con-
vencimiento. Pero las personas que
conocen a Carter dicen que es su
don de gentes y caballerosidad la
que le hacen ganarse el aprecio de
los que le tratan. Carter naci6 en
la ciudad de Panama. Hizo su es-
cuela primaria en una escuela priva-
da y la secundaria la curs6 por
correspondencia en la American
Schools, de Chicago, pero ya para
entonces habia tenido que salir a

nimeros, el gran impulse que este
torneo ha brindado a la nataci6n en-
tre los j6venes latinoamericanos de
la Zona del Canal. El primer event
de esta clase, celebrado el 11 de no-
viembre de 1957, en la Piscina de
Rainbow City, que era la anica loca-
lidad latinoamericana de la Zona del
Canal que contaba con su piscina
propia, fue ganado por L. Fergus,
joven de esa localidad, quien con un
tiempo de 65 segundos para la prue-
ba de 100 yards, estilo libre, para
j6venes de 14 a 18 afos, se impuso a
los de las demis comunidades latino-
americanas del Atlantico y Pacifico
que participaron en el torneo. El ailo
pasado, en el duodecimo torneo,
otro joven de Rainbow City, R. Ma-
yers, gan6 la prueba con un tiempo
de 54 segundos, 11 segundos menos
que el ganador de la primera prueba.
Durante los afios en que se ha
efectuado, se ha notado que las de-
mas comunidades, al ir contando
con piscinas propias, donde los j6ve-
nes locales podian entrenarse, tam-
bihn fueron imponikndose en los tor-
neos por el Trofeo del Gobernador.
Pedro Miguel se impuso sucesiva-
mente en 1963, 1964 y 1965. Santa
Cruz se impuso en 1966 y Paraiso
en 1967 y 1968. Pero hasta ahora, el
mayor ganador ha sido Rainbow

Se estAn haciendo planes para
que en el future se presented even-
tos especiales con sobresalientes na-
dadores de otros sectors de la Zona
del Canal y de la Repiiblica de Pa-
nama, para darle mis brillo a las
competencias de nataci6n patroci-
nadas por el Congreso. Las compe-
tencias de este afio prometen ser un
complete exito.
Los trofeos y niedallas que se do-
naran durante las competencias de
ese dia, 21 de noviembre, seran do-
nadas por la Mutual de Omaha,
compania de seguros de la ciudad
de PanamA, cuyo gerente general,
Joseph B. Lockman, siempre se ha
interesado por la salud fisica de los
j6venes de las comunidades latino-
americanas de la Zona del Canal.
