18th Cayuco
Explorer Post 21 swept first and
third places Sunday in the 18th

the Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts

Winner of the grueling race, which
began at Cristobal Friday and fin-
ished at Rodman Sunday, was Non

tiny, of Post 1 sponsored by the

another Post 21 cayuco, was third
with a time of 6:23.51.
Capt. Robert J. Norman, Chief,
Navigation Division, and race coor-
dinator, presented the trophy to the
winning crew at a ceremony at Rod-
man following the end of the race.
He also crowned the queen of the
race, Lynn Myers, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. DeWitt Myers, of La Boca.
Gold, silver, and bronze medals
went to crcwmembers of the first,
second, and third cayucos, respec-
tively, and race patches went to the
crewmembers of all 18 cayucos that
finished the race, which included
those that participated but did not
compete for the trophy.
The Lead Anchor Award, pre-
sented to the slowest award boat to
finish the race, went this year to the
Blue Juicer, of Ship 8, Rodman
Naval Base, and the Hard Luck
Award went to Ship 17, sponsored
by the Logistic Support Services,

session presided over by Gov. David
S. Parker.
Governor Parker, who was meet-
ing the Civic Council officers for
the first time since his return to the
Isthmus as Governor of the Canal
Zone, told the community leaders
that he considered these meetings
very important and that he intended
to keep the channels of communica-
tion between his office and the
councilmen open. He stressed that
it will not be a one-way street.
In noting with regret the closing
of the Tivoli Guest House, Gover-
nor Parker said that while nothing
definite had been decided, plans

program was the most important
item on the agenda. The Governor
stated that the revolt of youth' is

that while the Canal Zone has not
received the full impact of the
movement, it is important to provide
outlets for youthful energy to avoid
undesirable behavior.
He added that when he arrived
here he was pleased to find that a
system has been set up to work with
the youth of the community and

Irvin II. Lesser, instructor in the
Business Administration Depart-
ment of the Canal Zone College, has
been appointed to the International

This appointment represents a
uniquel and distinctive honor for
both Lesser and the Canal Zone
Duties delegated to this particun-
lar committee are "to discover and
keep a record of recurring commu-
niiUation problems confronting teach-
ers, students, and businessmen whose
lives are influenced by the society
and culture of the continental
United States but whose native lan-
guages are other than American
English." This committee is con-
sidered an extremely important one
in the work of the American Busi-
ness Communication Association.
The chairman of this committee is
expected to be in the Canal Zone
and Panama during the summer
months to confer with Lesser in
order to advance the study under-
taken by this organization.
Lesser was active in this associa-
tion for a number of years while
teaching as a faculty member of
the University of Miami. He also
attended their annual national con-
vention last December in Atlanta,
Ga. Lesser teaches typewriting,
shorthand, office machines, and
business communication at the Ca-

interest in writing, and he has sev-
eral articles written on topics related

Some Date Back to 1904

Papers by the Millions Kept

At PC Agency Records Center

"Keeping track of some 75 million
pieces of paper is just a routine task
for us," George Geflfen, supervisor
of the Agency Records Center, com-
mented as he surveyed shelf after
shelf of cardboard boxes filled with
records dating back to 1904.
The center is an important part of
the Administrative Services Divi-
sion's records management program.
One of the important goals of this
program is to provide efficient, but
economical, storage of so-called non-
current records until their legal or
operational life has ended.
More than 28,000 cubic feet of
Canal organization records are stored
on steel shelving in cardboard car-
tons which are carefully labeled and
indexed for quick reference. Located
in Building 42-D on Diablo Road,
the center occasionally encounters
termites, bookworms, and mold; but,
in general, records remain in good
condition. Records maintained in the
center date back to Canal construc-
tion days with the exception of the
central files created during the con-
struction of the Canal which were
transferred to the National Archives
and Records Service in Washington,
Noncurrent files used to be kept
in filing cabinets in field offices but
in 1954 a storage area was set up in
a warehouse-type building in the
Balboa Industrial area under the di-
rection of David F. Mead. The
building had storage space for about
6,000 cubic feet of records but as
custodians of records in the different
Canal units learned of the savings in
office space and filing cabinets pos-
sible through using the center, old)
records were dispatched and soon
the center needed more space.
Now 17 years after its establish-
mnent, the center is housed in a fire-
proof warehouse with almost 30,000
cubic feet of storage space. It is
equipped with open metal shelving
especially designed for use with
"record center cartons" which pro-
vide for efficient storage of either
letter size or legal size papers.
The papers stored in the boxes
would fill 4,667, four-drawer file
cabinets or if laid end-to-end the
paper would almost encircle the
Almost every unit of the Canal or-
ganization uses the center but the

Office of the Comptroller, the Per-
sonnel Bureau, and the Health Bu-
reau are the largest users of the fa-
Each office that transfers records
to the center receives a copy of a
shelf list on which the office's rec-
ords are identified and located by
shelf number. Referral to the list
gives the exact location. Shelf lists
are amended as necessary when dis-
posals occur.
When a records disposal job is
scheduled at the center, a report of
the disposition is sent to the original
custodian of the records. Even
though destruction is authorized in
a records control schedule, no rec-
ord at the center is disposed of with-
out first getting the signed approval
of the custodian of this report.
Once destruction has been author-
ized, the records are taken to a dis-
posal area and burned except for
X-rays and IBM cards which are
turned over to Section I for sale.
Firms buy the X-rays and reclaim
the silver from them.
The disposal of out-dated records
is a necessity and destruction dates
are carefully adhered to as other-
wvise the warehouse, though contain-
ing 30,000 cubic feet of space,
would soon be bulging at the seams

as more files constantly are being
routed to the center.
Most records are destroyed at the
end of a specified retention period
but some are microfilmed before
destruction and the filmed copies
In 1970, the employees of the
center filled 13,635 reference re-
quests and had 28,594 records on
hand at the end of the year. The
center has school files all the way
back to construction days and a big
part of their work is answering re-
quests for individual school records
to check information or for tran-
In checking old files, Geffen said
he had been very much impressed
with the quality of typing in the old
days. He also pointed out the beau-
tiful handwriting on many of the old
records dating back to the time when
they were kept by hand.
Besides maintaining records, the
center stores and makes distribution
of most agency publications includ-
ing regulatory and information cir-
culars, booklets, manuals, and the
Canal Zone Code.
Among the many distribution lists
for which address plates are main-
tained, the Philatelic list, the SPII.L-

YMCA Quarters

Are Dedicated

Civilian, diplomatic, military, and
religious leaders all gathered April 2
for dedication and ribbon cutting
ceremonies opening new living
quarters for the headquarters staff
of the Balboa Armed Services
The white, two-story duplex
building on La Boca road, Balboa,
will be the new home of Mr. and
Mrs. Elmer McClelland, "Y" direc-
tor, and Mr. and Mrs. Sid Little,
associate director, and the Littles'
two teenage children, Denise, 18,
and Mike, 13.
Construction of the building was
begun last June by builder E. 0.
Hauke. It was designed by Panama
Canal architect E. R. MacVittie
and .engineer Ruby Quintero, also
of the Engineering and Construc-
tion Bureau.
Carl J. Browne, bureau deputy

director, acted as master of cere-
monies during the commemoration
and noted that the new structure
replaced the original YMCA quar-
ters (built in the 1920's) which was
subject to attack by termites and
required constant and costly main-
tenance work.
Two years ago the Committee of
Management of the Balboa "Y"
decided that new housing was nec-
essary. Browne and Arthur J.
O'Leary, deputy comptroller, made
a proposal to Judge Guthrie F.
Crowe of the U.S. District Court,
Canal Zone, who also is chairman
of the YMCA Board of Manage-
ment. Judge Crowe approved the
plans and a committee to head the
project was named.

next few weeks including the pres-
entation of the rock music opera
"Jesus Christ Superstar." This is be-
ing presented during Holy Week at
the Curundu Cafetorium and later
in the Margarita Gymnasium. Also
on the agenda is a marathon dance
April 10 and 17 at the Cap, the air-
conditioned youth center in Balboa.
Payne said he hoped to get the
support of the adult members of
the communities on both sides of
the Isthmus and it was suggested
by Dr. Teodoro Arias, president of
the Pacific Civic Council, that the
dance be given TV coverage. It was
suggested that more publicity be
given the dance and the rules for
taking part.
In answer to a question made by
Douglas Schmidt, 2d vice president
of the Pacific Civic Council, Gover-
nor Parker said that he was sure the
fee on automobile license plates in
the Canal Zone would be increased
next year. He said he did not know
how much but was certain it would
be more in line with license plate
fees in the United States.
Schmidt questioned the reason for
this increase, saying that the roads
in the Canal Zone are at a "horse
and buggy" stage. The Governor
pointed out that all costs are rising
and the unusually low rate for li-
cense plates is not justified.

ernor Parker stated that Canal traffic
had recovered considerably in the
past 2 months and that the Canal
would end the fiscal year with a net
He emphasized, however, that
the Canal earnings this year would
not be sufficient to finance all the
major capital projects planned, and
that the Canal organization had
already eliminated some. But the
organization still faces a need for
replacements as well as necessary
improvements, power increase and
rehabilitation of housing. He offered
to make a complete explanation of
the manner in which the Canal
organization put together a financial
statement at a future civic council
Governor Parker told the council
members that the Canal is making
a strong effort to keep prices under
control, especially food costs and
rents. He explained that review of
the cost of living in the Canal Zone
is being considered, since more out-
siders feel that prices and rents are
too low in the Canal Zone.
In reference to a request made
by Dr. Arias for the preservation
of the Tivoli Guest House or the
leasing of the facility to a contrac-
tor, Governor Parker pointed out
that he had, during the time that
he was Lieutenant Governor, done
everything in his power to keep the
guest house running. He attributed
the closing in part to the lack of
patronage by the Canal Zone resi-
Captain Reinheimer then said
that the idea of constructing private
homes in the Canal Zone is being
discouraged because the'Canal or-
ganization is offering only sites that
would permit the construction of
mediocre type housing. He said most
employees interested in this con-
struction would like to have an
attractive site with an adequate
amount of land. Governor Parker
said that he would study the matter.
Other subjects discussed at the
meeting included: the licensing or
registration of bicycles in the Canal
Zone as a protection against loss;
the possibility of opening Miraflores
Bridge during Holy Week; the elim-
ination of a mini-bikes site near
Croton street in Balboa; a change
in post office regulations that would
permit acceptance of personal
checks; the possibility of running an
evening train later than the regular
10 p.m. service; the problem of
contraband in the Canal Zone retail
stores and a review of the pet con-
trol regulations.
At the end of the meeting Gov-
ernor Parker announced that Am-
bassador Robert Anderson had told
him that if and when treaty nego-
tiations resume with the Panama
Government, representatives from
the Canal Zone will be able to dis-
cuss matters with the U.S. nego-
tiating team.

Fervorosamente Observa

Panama los Dias Santos

IMafiana Viernes Santo, es el dia
nias sagrado para los cristianos de
todo el nmiindo.
En PanamAi, tanto en la capital
como en todo el interior de la Repi-
blica, cierran todos los estableci-
mientos piblicos y privados, espe-
cialmente los de diversion. Los
panameiios todos participan en los
actos con que la Iglesia Cat6lica, la
de la mayoria de la poblaci6n, con-
memora la muerte del Divino Maes-
tro en la Cruz.
En la ciudad de PanamA, las pro-
cesiones del Viernes Santo mais con-
curridas salen de la Iglesia de Santa
Ana y de la Iglesia de Cristo Rey.
En la de Santa Ana participan todos
los personajes de la Pasi6n del Se-
nior. Algunos en estatuas, como La
Dolorosa y el Santo Sepulcro. Pero
tambi6n muchos de los personajes,
como los soldados romanos, la Ver6-
nica y la Magdalena, son represen-
tados en vivo por caballeros y sefio-
ritas de la parroquia que se visten
La de Cristo Rey tiene como pun-
to principal los site pass de la
Pasi6n, desde la Oraci6n en el
Huerto, que inicia la procesi6n,
hasta la imagen de la Dolorosa qut
es el anda que cierra el cortejo.
Los siete pasos de la Iglesia de
Cristo Rey son muy artisticos y fue-
ron hechos en Espafia.
Ambas procesiones atraen a miles
y miles de files que acompafian el
cortejo con un profundo recogimien-
to. En las aceras, guardando impre-
sionante silencio, otros miles de
personas observan el curso de la
procesi6n y se puede observer que
muchas de ellas rezan devotamente.
Muchos miles de residents de la
ciudad de PanamA se dirigen en
estos dias a las poblaciones del inte-
rior, donde se unen a sus familiares
en la conmemoraci6n de los dias
La procesi6n del Santo Sepulcro
de la Villa de Los Santos, a unas

160 mills al suroeste de la ciudad
de Panama es una de las inas es-
plendorosas y tiene como punto
principal el paso del Santo Sepulcro,
que constitute casi una obra maes-
tra de orfebreria, tal es la profusion
(de luces y de adornos de plata y
oro que contiene.
En todas las poblaciones del In-
terior se Ileva a cabo, el Viernes
Santo, la Procesi6n del Silencio.
mientras que el SAbado Santo, las
mujeres de los pueblos, con velas
en la mano, acompafian una estatua
de la Dolorosa, en lo que se llama
la Procesi6n de la Soledad de la
Virgen. Esta ultima procesi6n ad-
quiere un matiz impresionante en
los pueblos mAs apartados, pues
segiin la tradici6n, los hombres
deben encerrarse dentro de las casas
mientras dure, dejando solas a las
mujeres, que acompafian a la sagra-
da imagen en su recorrido por las
calls de la poblaci6n.
QuizAs el acto de mayor categoria
que se Ileva a cabo el Viernes Santo
en el Interior es la representaci6n
de la Pasi6n en vivo que efect6ian
los habitantes de Pes6, centro agri-
cola, ganadero e industrial de la
Provincia de Herrera, situado a unas
165 milas al suroeste de oa ciudad
de Panamai y al que se Ilega por
una magnifica carretera.
La representaci6n de la Pasi6n
de Cristo es perfect y cubre todos
los aspects de las ultimas horas de
la vida terrenal del Salvador del
Mundo. En dicha representaci6n
toman parte principal los alumnos
de las escuelas del lugar, pero parti-
cipan, de una manera u otra, todos

liche de Balboa. Desde hace 29 anios
trabaja con el Canal de PanamA, ha-
biendo iniciado su servicio en 1941,
cuando vino al Istmo contratado por
el Canal. El primer trabajo que se
le asign6 en la organizaci6n fue con
la Division de Electricidad en Cris-
t6bal. Alli permaneci6 durante 10
ainos. Luego fue trasladado a la Sec-
ci6n I en Balboa. Dice que entonces
decidi6 ir a El Salvador. Regres6 al
t6rmino de 1 aiio y fue a trabajar al
Clubhouse de Diablo. Luego fue
trasladado a la Cancha de Boliche
de Balboa, donde ha permanecido
desde entonces. De su trabajo, dice
que le encanta, pues tiene oportuni-
dad de tratar con personas de muy
diferente clase, desde estudiantes de
la universidad y de escuelas secun-
darias, hasta ejecutivos de la empre-
sa del Canal. "Me va muy bien con
todos. No tengo problems con mis
jefes, ni con mis compaiieros de tra-
bajo y much menos con los clien-
tes", dice sonriendo y la Srta. Ivy

Archives que Datan ce 1904

Estan en Dep6sito Central

"Seguir la pista de unos 75 millo-
nes de pedazos de papel es s6lo una
tarea de rutina para nosotros", co-
mentaba George Ceffen, supervisor
del Dep6sito Central de Documen-
tos al inspeccionar anaquel tras ana-
quel con cajas de cart6n Ilenas de
documents que datan hasta 1904.
El dep6sito es una part impor-
tante del program de administra-
ci6n de archives de la Divisi6n de
Servicios Administrativos. Una de
las metas importantes de este pro-
grama es el de proporcionar el alma-
cenamiento eficiente, pero econ6mi-
co, de los Ilamados archives inacti-
vos hasta que haya finalizado su vi-
gencia legal o utilizaci6n.
Mas de 28.000 pies c6bicos de
los documents de la organizaci6n
del Canal estAn almacenados en
anaqueles de acero en cajetas de
cart6n que son cuidadosamente
rotuladas y puestas en un indice
para rApidas referencias. Situado
en el Edificio 42-D en la Carre-
tera Diablo, el dep6sito tiene
ocasionalmente comejenes, poli-
Ilas y moho; pero, en general, los
documents permanecen en bue-
nas condiciones. Los documents
mantenidos en el dep6sito datan
desde los dias de la construcci6n
del Canal con la excepci6n de los
archives centrales creados duran-
te la construcci6n del Canal que
fucron trasladados al Servicio Na-
cional de Registros y Archivos en
Washington, D.C.
Los archives inactivos se glarda-
ban antes en archivadores en las ofi-
cinas, pero en 1954 se erigi6 un
Area de almacenamiento en un edi-
ficio del tipo de almacen de de-
p6sito en el Area Industrial de Bal-
boa bajo la direcci6n de David F.
Mead. El edificio tenia un espacio
de almaoenamiento de unos 6.000
pies cubicos de archives, pero al
saber los custodios de los archives
en las diferentes unidades del Canal
sobre el possible ahorro en espacio
de oficinas y en los archivadores por
medio del uso del dep6sito, los vie-
jos archives fueron despachados y
pronto el depo6sito necesit6 mas es-
Ahora, 17 afios despues de su
establecimiento, el dep6sito estA
en un almacen a prueba de incen-
dios con casi 30.000 pies cuibicos
de espacio para almacenamiento.
Esta equipado con anaqueleria de
metal abierta, especialmente di-
sefiada para el uso con "cartones
de dep6sito de archives" que pro-
porcionan el almacenamiento efi-
ciente para papeles del tamaiio de
carts o para documents legales.
Los papeles almacenados en las
cajas Ilenarian 4.667 archivadores de
cuatro gavetas o si se colocan en el
suelo punta con punta, le darian casi
la vuelta al mundo.
Casi cada unidad de la organiza-
ci6n del Canal usa el dep6sito, pero

El archivero Arsenio I. Morales saca

Cada oficina que traslada archi-
vos al dep6sito, recibe una copia de
la lista de anaqueles en los cuales
los archives de la oficina estan iden-
tificados y situados por nimero de
anaquel. Un vistazo a la lista da
la ubicaci6n exacta. Las listas de los
anaqueles son enmendadas segin
sea necesario cuando hay que des-
hacerse de archives.
Cuando hay que deshacerse de
archives guardados en el dep6sito,
se envia un informed de lo que se ha
hecho al custodio original de los ar-
chivos. Aun cuando la destrucci6n
sea autorizada en una list para con-
trol de los archives, ning6n docu-
mento en el dep6sito es desechado
sin obtener primero la aprobaci6n
firmada del custodio de este informed.
Una vez que la destrucci6n ha
sido autorizada, los archives son
Ilevados al Area de desechos y
quemados con excepci6n de las
places de rayos X y las tarjetas
IBM que son entregadas a la Sec-
ci6n I para la venta. Hay compa-
iiias que compran las places de

El desecho de archives anticuados
es una necesidad y las fechas de des-
trucci6n son ouimplidas cuidadosa-
mente, pues de lo contrario el alma-
cAn, aunque cuenta con 30.000 pies
cAbicos de espacio, se Ilenaria hasta
el tope, ya que constantemente so
envian mas archives al dep6sito.
La mayoria de los archives son
destruidos al final de un especifico
period de retenci6n, pero algunos
son microfilmados antes de su cdes-
trucci6n y se guardian las copias fil-
En 1970, los empleados del de-
p6sito Ilenaron 13.635 solicitudes
de referencias y tenian 28.594
archives en mano al final del afio.
El dep6sito tiene archives esco-
lares que van desde los dias de la
construcci6n y gran parte de su
trabajo es contestar solicitudes de
informed escolares individuals
para verificar una informnnaci6n o
para copiarla.
Al revisar los viejos archives, Ge-
flen dijo que qued6 muy impresio-
nado con Ia calidad de la mecano-
grafia de antailo. Tambien seimal6
la bella escritura a mano que se ve
en muchos de los viejos archives que
datan del tiempo en que eran hechos
a mano.
AdemAs de mantener los archi-
vos, el dep6sito almacena y hace la
distribuci6n de la mayoria de las
publicaciones de las agencies inclu-
yendo las circulars de reglamento
y de informaci6n, folletos, manuals
y el C6digo de la Zona del Canal.
Entre las muchas listas de dis-
tribuci6n para las cuales se man-
tienen places de direcci6n, las
que tienen mayor circulaci6n son
la list filatelica, el SPILLWAY y el
REVIEw del Canal de PanamA.
Actualinente el dep6sito mantie-
ne una list filat6lica de aproxi-
madamente 15.000 coleccionistas
de estampillas y publicaciones fi-
latflicas en todo el mundo.
