Vol. X, No. 39


UF Audit Ordered

As Runnestrands

Prepare to Leave
Departing from a prepared speech
at a JWB ceremony honoring the
retiring Executive Secretary of the
Panama Canal organization, Gov.
David S. Parker announced that an
early audit has been ordered of
United Fund accounts.
Inasmuch as Mr. Runnestrand
served as Executive Director of the
United Fund Campaign, the Gov-
ernor's announcement on this par-
ticular occasion gave rise to specula-
tion as to whether the Runnestrands'
departure might be delayed pend-
ing completion of the audit.
Combined Federal Campaign re-
ceipts for 1972 were $230,908.86,
which, as the Governor said, "is not
to be sneezed at."
Efforts to reach other officers of
the United Fund have been unsuc-
cessful. Robert S. Jeffrey, who
served as secretary in the campaign,
was reported to be "holed up"
working on a special project and
completely unavailable for com-
ment. Another key officer, UF comp-
troller Arthur J. O'Leary, was re-
ported to be on an "official" trip to
the United States, including stops in
Chicago, Miami Beach, Hollywood
and Las Vegas.
There was no opportunity to ques-
tion Governor Parker at the JWB
ceremony and he left early next
morning on a fishing trip. Spokes-
man Patrick Conley would say only
that the Governor was expected
back "soon" and that no one else
was qualified or authorized to
elaborate on the matter.
A query to the Information Office
brought an evasive answer: "This
year's fair at David promises to be
the biggest and best yet and we are
all looking forward to it."

The distaff side of the Marine
Bureau conducted a survey to de-
termine the "Best Dressed Man of
the Year" in the Canal Zone.
By an overwhelming majority,
the vote went to retiring Executive
Secretary Paul M. Runnerstrand,
whose natty, mod clothes were con-
sidered really "in."

Panama Elements Demonstrate

In Front of Admin. Building


Among the highest honors awarded Paul Runnestrand, retiring Executive
Secretary of the Panama Canal, was this certificate which was presented
by Rabbi Nathan Witkin proclaiming him an "Honorary Jew." In present-
ing the award, Witkin said: "Now you are entitled to a Bar-Mitzvah!"

PMR Boat Flaw

Stands Pat (Up)
Urgent calls to top Panama Canal
officials considered experts in sea-
faring matters went out yesterday
in an effort to ease the plight of a
boat owner who feared himself
bilked in the purchase of a defec-
tive craft.
J. Patrick Conley, a resident of
Cascadas Road, Balboa Heights,
called a hurried meeting with the
Marine Director, the Transporta-
tion and Terminals Director, the
Chief of the Industrial Division and
the Chief of Navigation to discuss
the problem.
Conley's boat, which he pur-
chased in good faith from depart-
ing Executive Secretary Paul M.
Runnestrand without even testing
it, refuses to run.
The craft was delivered to the
Conley home only last night by
Runnestrand himself, who towed it
up the hill about 7:30 p.m., after
the Conley family had retired for
the night-and after Conley's check
had cleared the bank.

Although the Graphic Branch had no photographer available to record it
on film, the noisy demonstration staged in front of the Administration Build-
ing in Balboa Heights as Executiv- Secretary Paul M. Runnestrand departed

Baldwin Assigned

Runnestrand House
The housing manager today con-
firmed that House 153 in Balboa
Heights, conveniently located near
the Quarry Heights Officers' Club,
has been assigned to Panama Canal
Information Officer Frank A. Bald-
Most of the furniture in the house,
now being vacated by Paul M. Run-
nestrand, also was acquired by
Baldwin-all at bargain prices.
Baldwin has denied that the favor-
able prices were granted in ex-
change for publicity received by the
Runnestrands during the past few
years. He also denied he intends to
sell it to the Flea Market Street-at
a profit.

Dr. Matheney Gets

Outstanding Award
Dr. Bob Matheney got an
outstanding award for efficient
veterinary services in treating
Paul Runnestrand's horse. The
horse died after the award was

Authorities on both sides of the
line had comments on the news that
Paul M. Runnestrand, Executive
Secretary of the Canal organization,
is to leave the Isthmus after many
long years of service.
Leading figures in Panama, head-
ed by Lie. Carlos Garay, director of
U.S. relations at Panama's foreign
ministry, formed a committee. It
was not immediately clear whether
the purpose of the group was to
honor Runnestrand or merely to
warn his successor that they in-
tended to stand firm on all issues.
Other members of the committee
are Foreign Minister Juan Antonio
Tack, U.N. Representative Aquilino
Boyd, Minister of Government and
Justice Juan Materno Vizquez and
"Tato" Rodriguez, who sells lot-
tery on J Street. Sources close to
Government circles speculated that
the lottery vendor was representing
the director of that government
agency, who has criticized Runnes-
trand for not buying enough lottery
and therefore not contributing to
Panama's charitable institutions.
Chairman Carlos Garay said of
Runnestrand's departure: "I sin-
cerely hope that during his retire-
ment, Mr. Runnestrand will have
time to reflect on the vicissitudes of
the relationship between our two
countries and in so doing will come
to the realization that although all
men are created equal it often
comes to pass that an individual, a
nation'or a people will rise above
all others and emerge as a world
leader, as this humble servant has
managed to do, but was always too
modest to admit."
When asked to comment on Run-
nestrand's retirement, Foreign Min-
ister Tack sang three verses of the
Panama National Anthem, 'then re-
cited an obscure Chinese proverb
which, roughly translated says:
"The year of the rat will bring hap-
piness to some and sadness to others,
for the moon is made of cheese,
but the spirit of the revolution is
to forge ahead for the good of
the people."
Gov. David S. Parker bemoaned
the fact that now someone else

was captured by the nimble pen of cartoonist Silvera, complete with plac-
cards and banners asserting Panama's position. Does Paul indeed know
something we don't know?

would have to be trained to do the
PRC minutes. "I probably won't
even be able to read his hand-
writing," he said.
Les Ferguson received the news
of the Runnestrands' departure quite
sadly and indicated that he expected
a slump in business-particularly in
the mens wear department. "Paul
has been singled out as one of the
best dressers in the community and
he's one of our top customers
-and Betty always spent a sizeable
amount on art materials."
Consulting his slide rule, E&C
Director Chuck McGinnis quickly
calculated the amount of Runne-
strand's retirement check and said
that he too was looking forward to
the day when he could say adi6s to
the IDAAN and the IRHE.
Civil Affairs director Emo Ever-
son puffed pensively on his pipe
and said he would issue a statement
next Tuesday at the staff meeting.
EPS Chief Don Dertien was dis-
consolate. "First Merrill, now Paul-
they're leaving me all alone" he
ISO Chief Bob Walker expressed
regret that Paul hadn't stayed with
the Canal long enough to complete
the security check on him. "Now
we'll have to start all over with a
new executive secretary," he said.
Comptroller Phil Steers and Per-
sonnel Director Ed Doolan engaged
in a lengthy discussion over Runne-
strand's replacement. Steers favored
downgrading the position to an
NM-9 and filling it with a recent
college graduate. "We would save
the company 100 thou in the next
4 years," he argued. Doolan cited
several Civil Service regulations
that would make this impractical,
pointing out that this also would re-
quire downgrading Bob Jeffrey and
Bill Wigg and perhaps even Mary
Anderson and Margaret King, all
of whom would be well justified in
filing grievances.
General Counsel Dwight McKab-
ney defended Mr. Doolan's position,
pointing out that lengthy litigation
was sure to result and in the long
rnm it would cost the Company
more money than it would save.
Marine Director Bob Mink and
T&T Director Ax Jones both re-
ported that they had been contacted
by Pat Conley for advice on how to
repair a boat he had just acquired
from Runnestrand. (See story on
this page).
Health Director Bob Green urged
Runnestrand to stop by Gorgas for
one last free checkup before leav-
ing. He assured him that as a par-
ting gesture, he would make ar-
rangements so that there would be
no lengthy wait in the outpatient
Warren Smith, Safety Branch
chief expressed the hope that now
that he is retiring and joining the
geritol set, Runnestrand would quit
riding scooters and engaging in
other potentially dangerous activ-
ities for a man of his years.
Al Baldwin announced that in
appreciation for the bargain prices
he got on the furniture, he would
absorb the cost of this special issue
of the SPILLWAY.

Industrial Division

Gets "Well Done"

Letter From Agent

The Industrial Division recently
received a "well done" letter from
David W. Owen, operations man-
ager of C. Fernie & Co. Inc. for
some repair work to a ship client.
Personnel of the inside machine
shop at Mount Hope were primarily
involved in the work. The letter
says in part:
"As you will no doubt recall, on
the above mentioned date, the Stolt
Albatross landed several engine and
pump parts to be machined . . and
airfreighted to the U.S. Gulf for
redelivery to the vessel. . . . the
work was completed in time for us
to airfreight all the parts to the
U.S. Gulf as per our principals'
"We are pleased to confirm that
the master informed us that all the
parts had been perfectly repaired
and received by them in good order
and he asked us to convey to you
on behalf of himself and his prin-
cipals, his sincere thanks for the
excellent cooperation and work
"We would also like at this time
to express our thanks and request
you kindly to convey this message
to the gentlemen involved."

. Merrill Whitman

Closes PC Career

W. Merrill Whitman who as Sec-
retary of the Panama Canal Com-
pany and Assistant to the Governor
has for the past 20 years been in
charge of Canal affairs in the United
States, retired recently after serving
the Canal organization for 32 years.
A native of Nebraska, Whitman
began his Canal career in 1940 as
an associate attorney in the Office
of the General Counsel. He re-
ceived his law degree "cum laude"
in 1935 from Nebraska's University
College of Law and also at-
tended Northwestern University

Girl Scouting

Will Mark 60

Girl Scouting will observe its
60th anniversary during Girl Scout
Week, March 12 through March 18.
The youth movement was started
by Juliette Gordon Low of Savan-
nah, Ga., March 12, 1912, as . .
"something for the girls of Savan-
nah, all America, and all the world."
A group of 18 girls made up that
first troop of girl scouts "Dedicated
to the purpose of inspiring girls
with the highest ideals of character,
conduct, patriotism, and service that
they may become happy and re-
sourceful citizens."
Since that time, approximately 32
million girls, men and women, at
one time or another, have been
members of Girl Scouts of the USA.
Today, a membership of approxi-
mately 4 million reflects all racial,
economic and cultural backgrounds.
Their byword is action, social ac-
tion, interaction, ecological action,
and community action-all stem-
ming from the inner awareness and
growth of the individual members.
Girl Scouting is a positive force
for good and an important part of
the American scene.

1972 Cayuco Race Dates

Announced: March 24-26

This year's Explorer Ocean-to-
Ocean Cayuco Race will be held
March 24, 25 and 26, it has been
announced by the Canal Zone
Council, Boy Scouts of America,
which sponsors the event.
Explorer posts on both sides of
the Isthmus already are preparing
for the 19th annual race, which at-
tracts hundreds of spectators from
the Canal Zone and the Republic
of Panama. Besides putting finish-
ing touches on their dugout canoes,
four-member crews have been whip-
ping themselves into shape for the
grueling, 42-mile paddle from the
Cristobal Yacht Club to Pier 1 at
Rodman Naval Station.
Many of the boats that partici-
pated in the 1971 event are ex-
pected to be back again this year
to compete for the handsome trophy
that goes to the winning cayuco
and the medals which will be
awarded to crew members placing
first, second, third and fourth.
Explorer Post 21, sponsored by
the Balboa Union Church, plans to
enter a total of six cayucos again
this year, including Non Illegitimus
Carborundum and Bejuco, which
took first and third place, respec-
tively, in last year's race. Post 1 of
Margarita, whose boat Destiny took
second place last year, will compete
again this year.
Explorers not competing for the
trophy will participate as patch
crews and dozens of adults will take
part in the race from aboard escort
and committee boats.
Serving as race coordinator this
year will be Capt. Robert J. Nor-
man, Chief of the Canal's Naviga-
tion Division.
The race is divided into three
legs, one for each day of the race.
Maj. Gen. George L. Mabry, Jr.,
Commander, U.S. Armed Forces,
Southern Command and 1971 pres-
ident of the Canal Zone Council,
Boy Scouts of America, will fire the
starting gun 4:05 p.m., March 24,
at the Cristobal Yacht Club Pier 1.

Captain Norman will serve as offi-
cial starter of the second leg, which

Lighthouse Landing the next morn-
ing. And Gov. David S. Parker will
fire the starting gun 12:05 p.m.,
Sunday, for the final leg, from in-
side Miraflores Locks.
Participating boats will be locked
down through Pedro Miguel and
Miraflores Locks but will not be
locked up through the Gatun Locks
because of possible turbulence in-
side the lock chambers. Strict
safety regulations will be enforced
throughout the race.
The winning trophy, medals, and
patches will be presented at the
awards ceremony which is sched-
uled to begin at 3 p.m., Sunday, at
the baseball stadium, Rodman
Naval Station.

Too Much Engine Ist UF Toui

Can Cause Boat

Safety Hazard
An overengined small boat can
be a dangerous boat. This is a con-
dition often found in homemade
small boats.
Commercially made small boats
carry a manufacturer's plate that
advises on the maximum horsepower
outboard motor to be used. Fre-
quently, the "do-it-yourselfer" is
not sure what size outboard motor
to mount on his boat but he wants
speed. Thinking that horsepower is
the key to speed, he overengines his
boat. While more horsepower means
more speed, it also means more
weight, and this is where many a
small boater has come to grief.
A small boat, that is excessively
down by the stern because of too
heavy an engine, can be swamped
by a following wave and sink in
seconds. If in doubt about the size
outboard engine to put in your boat,
talk it over with some knowledge-
able boating friends before hand.

Ivy are confined to reprimands and sus-
pensions for 30 calendar days or less.
In Fiscal Year 1971, absenteeism

sumamente interesante y tengo que
ser sumamente precise en todo lo
que hago, pues me toca tratar con
lo mis sagrado que el hombre pue-
de tener en su vida, su trabajo. Ade-
mis, el mio es un trabajo donde se
practican, como en muy pocos otros,
las relaciones humans. Trato con
muchisimas personas y de ese trato
uno siempre sale ganando en ricas
experiencias. Todos mis compaileros
de trabajo son magnificas personas
y en nuestra unidad existe siempre
el mAs grande espiritu de compaiie-
rismo". A Reid le encanta jugar te-
nis y tambidn al ajedrez. Ha viaja-
do much per el Interior y los luga-

res que mis le han impresionado
son Chitr6, por sus magnificos ha-
bitantes; Boquete, per su clima pa-
radisiaco, y David, per ser toda una
gran ciudad con much actividad
commercial y per su ambiente cultu-
ral. Su mayor deseo consiste en ter-
minar sus studios universitarios y
alcanzar su grade de maestria en

Existen dos caminos a tomar para estar un noventa por ciento libre de

Un camino
Pasarse la vida en una casa a prue-
ba de peligros - una que est6 per-
fectamente protegida contra los ra-
yos, terremotos, inundaciones e in-
cendios. Mantenerse muy cerca del
suelo para evitar caerse. No confiar
en nadie sino en uno mismo y con-
fiar en uno mismo muy poco. No
usar gas, carb6n y otras sustancias
que puedan general gas. Usar sini-
camente luz natural. No tener esca-
leras, ni bafieras ni usar jab6n.
Si se puede hacer todo esto y
mantenerse en su sano juicio las
posibilidades de tener una vida sin
accidents se acercan al 90%, pero
es probable que se muera alrededor
de los 30 afios por comer en exceso,
por falta de sol y aire fresco, falta
de ejercicio y en general por estar
aburrido de la vida.
dCudl de los dos caminos premiere

El otro camino
Vivir una vida complete y Ilena
de satisfacciones haciendo las cosas
que se quiere tales como volar, na-
dar, andar a caballo, manejar, cazar,
pescar, escalar montafias y hasta
lavar ventanas en los edificios altos,
pero haci6ndolas cuidadosamente y
tomando las precauciones necesa-
rias para evitar accidents.
Habra que evitar los peligros que
no pueden modificarse, no importa
cuanto se conozca de seguridad, ta-
les como manejar un autom6vil con
Ilantas muy gastadas a velocidades
muy altas.
Si se establece un program de
vida teniendo en cuenta las reglas de
seguridad las veinticuatro horas del
dia las posibilidades de vivir una
vida larga y feliz son muchas.
