Student Assistants

To Report Next Week

Canal Zone To Honor

U.S. War Dead Monday

- Some 375 young people will re-
port next week for work at various
Canal organization units to par-
ticipate in the annual student assist-
ant program which formally begins
May 30 and will continue through
September 2.
Other U.S. Government agencies
in the Canal Zone also are planning
similar programs during this period.
For the students, it will be an
opportunity to earn a salary, to
learn the workings of the Canal
organization and, for some, a
chance to gain practical experience
in the field they have chosen as
their profession or vocation.
The Personnel Bureau received
approximately 850 applications for
the 375 positions.
Divided into categories, the pro-
gram this year includes 223 office
jobs, 76 manual, 44 technical and
14 for sales and service. As to bu-
reaus and units, the Engineering
and Construction leads with 68
jobs to be filled. Next comes Sup-
ply and Community Service with
58; Office of the Comptroller, 54;
Marine, 50; Health, 36; Transpor-
tation and Terminals, 34; Person-
nel, 25; Civil Affairs, 14; Admin-
istrative Services and the Executive
Planning Staff, 6 each; Information
Office, 3; Safety Branch, 2; and the
Office of the General Counsel, 1.
Eligible were United States and
Panamanian citizens who are dep-
endents of residents of the Canal
Zone or the Republic of Panama,
who at the time of application were
enrolled as full-time seniors in any
Canal Zone or United States high
school who will e graduated at
the end of the 1971-72 school
year; full-time students in a junior
college in the Canal Zone or the
United States; or full-time under-


Claims Under

The Canal Zone Government
was advised this week, in response
to an inquiry concerning the status
of the women's tropical differential
claims, that the matter is still under
consideration in the office of the
Comptroller General. An official
there stated that a decision could
be expected in the near future.
More than 600 administrative
claims, filed by U.S. citizen,
women employees of the two Pan-
ama Canal agencies, are awaiting
the ruling from Washington. When
approval is received, payment can
be made promptly inasmuch as
calculation of the amounts due has
already been completed by the
Payroll Branch.
About 200 employees of the
Canal Zone Government have al-
ready received an award of retro-
active differential pay. Those
claimants recovered the differential
through a suit in the U.S. Court of
Claims after the Justice Depart-
ment agreed to enter judgments
without trial of the action on the
merits. Approximately 100 other
such claims against the Panama
Canal Company are on file in the
U.S. District Court in Washington.

graduate students in an accredited
college in the United States who
will not receive a bachelor or an
equivalent degree in 1972.
During their summer employ-
ment, the student assistants earn
$1.60 an hour if they are high
school graduates and $1.75 if they
are college students.
Those from both sides of the
Isthmus will receive an orientation
at the Balboa High School Audi-
torium June 16 followed by a tour.
Gov. David S. Parker will deliver
a welcoming address. Panama
Canal Information Officer Frank A.
Baldwin will brief the student
assistants on the operation of the
Canal and David Niedzialek, head
of the Personnel Bureau's Cristobal
Office, will outline employment
opportunities with the Panama
Canal. Later, the Information Office
will conduct the tour, which will
take in a visit to the Canal model
in the Civil Affairs Building, Mira-
flores Locks and a partial transit
of Gaillard Cut aboard the launch
Las Cruces.

Retirees To Get

An Increase in

Their Annuities
Retired Federal employees and
those who retire before July 1 will
receive an increase of at least 4.7
percent in their annuities as a re-
sult of a recent rise in the con-
sumer price index.
Cost of living adjustments in
pensions of Federal retirees are
based on increases in the index
which, according to preliminary
figures received from Washington,
recently went up at least 3.7 per-
An increase of 3 percent or more
that holds for 3 consecutive months
results in an increase in pensions.
An additional 1 percent is added to
the highest percentage reached
during the 3 months to arrive at
the total annuitv increase.

Annual Boquete Flower Festival

Will Be Held June 16-20

The annual Flower Festival at
Boquete, Chiriqui Province, will be
held the week of June 16-20.
The Flower Festival was for-
merly held during dry season but
was changed because there are more
flowers in bloom and more flower-
ing trees at this time of year.
The Boquete flower show is the
only one held in the country. In
addition to numerous floral displays
and arrangements at the fair
grounds, the residents of Boquete
have beautiful flower gardens and
compete for prizes given for the
most ornamental gardens.
The festival is held at the fair
grounds near the Caldera River
that flows through town. Small
rivelets have been made through-
out the fairgrounds, adding to the
beauty of the area.

Sound Planning

Makes Retirement

Living Easier
A successful, happy retirement
doesn't just happen. It takes plan-
ning. At retirement your income
will probably be reduced and your
spending pattern will need to adjust
to your changed income. So there
will be at least three important
decisions to be made:
1. How will vou spend your
2. Where will you live?
3. What type housing will you
Retirement can mean many
things: Opportunity to stop work,
cut down on activities, and rest;
time to travel, develop a hobby, or
start a second career.
Sound planning will make the
transition to retirement living easier
and help to avoid costly mistakes. If
you plan to retire within the next
few years, a new booklet from the
U.S. Department of Agriculture can
help you make some of these deci-
sions and plans. Among the topics
are suggestions on setting up a
realistic and flexible budget, esti-
mating expenses and financial re-
sources, and where and how to live
on your income. Copies of "A Guide
To Budgeting For The Retired
Couple" (G-194) are available for
10 cents from the Superintendent
of Documents, U.S. Government
Printing Office. Washington, D.C.
Additional information may he
obtained from the retirement coun-
selor's office in the Training Center
on Corozo Street. Telephone Bal-
boa 3229.

Aedes Aegypti
A recent survey of townsites Ihas
confirmed that the Canal Zone is
free of the Aedes Aegypti, yellow

The survey included the Pacific

The intensive survey was car-
ried out by a team of 10 inspectors
and two environmental health
technicians, David Laracuente and
William Hill of the Sanitation Di-
The eradication of this specie of
mosquito, which normally prefers
to live close to people, can be
credited to the daily operations of
the Division of Sanitation mosquito
exterminators, and their military
counterparts. They visit townsites
daily to eliminate sources of all
types of mosquitoes that breed in
bodies of water and containers
such as cans, jars and bottles. An-
other factor in the success of the
campaign has been the coopera-
tion of residents in all townsites.
A joint Canal Zone-Republic of
Panama campaign during 1949
and 1950 eliminated the mosquito
throughout both regions. S:nce that
time, the Health Bureau has been
reporting annually to the Panamer-
ican Health Organization that con-
tinued surveillance reveals no in-
dication of the mosquito.
Although the Aedes Aegypti era-
dication campaign in the Americas
was initiated 26 years ago, progress
has been slow and reinfestation has
occurred in a number of countries
that earlier had been declared free
of the mosquito, Dr. Garcia told
the Health Director. The continued
presence of the mosquito repre-
sents a hazard in the Americas be-
cause the Aedes Aegypti is known
to transmit at least six viruses, in-
cluding yellow fever.

having outlived the other four. He
married his fifth wife when he was
107 years old.
Perhaps the most famous fact
about Thrash, who lived in a cabin
in the forest of Chickamauga Na-

came too feeble to walk to the
post office for his annuity check,
he sent his son, age 90, to get it.

annuity for more than 44 years.
All retired under the disability
provisions of the Law.

Panamericana". Dice que lo prime-
ro que uno tiene que hacer es co-
nocer su pais y las bellezas que
contiene y despubs pensar en salir
a recorrer el mundo. Quiere mu-
cho a su ciudad natal, Col6n. Dice
que la gente de alli es muy unida,
alegre y hospitalaria. En Col6n,
cuando uno visit una familiar, ge-
neralmente no brindan tragos, sino
comida, y lo hacen sentir a uno
como en su casa. En cuanto a la
alegria, hay que ir a Col6n un sA-
bado por la noche. Hay bailes por

de Col6n, como el 20-30, el Club
NAutico Caribe, los Rotarios, s6lo
por mencionar algunos", dice con-
vencida, "son de los mAs activos
que hay en toda la Repiblica".
Dice que le encanta la tendencia
de los colonenses de ir creando
nuevas ciudades sat6lites, como
CativA, Sabanitas, Puerto Pil6n y
Rio Rita que dentro de unos pocos
afios convertirAn a Col6n en una
verdadera metr6poli del Caribe.

De la Fiebre Amarilla

David Laracuente, a la izquierda, Tdenico de Salubri-
dad Ambiental de la Oficina de Sanidad de Anc6n, y
William Hill, T6cnico de Salubridad Ambiental de la
Oficina de Sanidad de Mount Hope, inspeccionan un
florero y flores artificiales que contienen agua, en el
Cementerio de Mount Hope, para averiguar la pre-
sencia de mosquitos Aedes Aegypti, portadores poten-

ciales de fiebre amarilla. Dicho cementerio fue parte
de un studio extensive que efectuaron en la Zona del
Canal various consultores de la Organizaci6n Paname-
ricana de la Salud, quienes se encuentran tratando de
confirmar la presencia o la eliminaci6n de ese mos-
quito en los passes de Centro y Sur America. El studio
comprob6 que aqui no hay dichos insects.

Un studio reciente, echo en
los poblados de la Zona del Canal
ha confirmado que dicha area estA
libre del Acdes Aegypti, el mos-
quito portador de le fiebre ama-
Dicho studio incluy6, en el
area del Pacifico, a Camboa, Pa-
raiso, Pedro Miguel, la Divisi6n In-
dustrial de Balboa y la Base Naval
de Rodman, mientras que en el
sector Atlantico se hizo la investi-
gaci6n en Coco Solo, Rainbow
City, Gat6n, la Divisi6n Industrial
de Mount Hope y Crist6bal.
El Dr. Egherto Carcia, consul-
tor de la Organizaci6n Panamcri-
cana de la Salud sobre la erradica-
ci6n del Aedes Aegypti en la Ani6-
rica Latina, inform al Director de
Salubridad, Dr. Robert W. Green,
que no se encontraron mosquitos
Aedes Aegypti en la Zona del
Dicho studio intensive fue lle-
vado a cabo por un equipo de 10
inspectors y dos tecnicos de salu-
bridad ambiental, David Lara-
cuente y William Hill, de la Divi-
si6n de Sanidad.
La eliminaci6n de esta especie
de mosquitos, que prefieren vivir
cerca del hombre, debe ser acre-
ditada a la tarea diaria de los ex-
tenninadores de mosquitos de la

Se Publican Mas Reglas

Division de Sanidad y a sus con-
trapartes de las Areas militares,
que visitan diariamente los pobla-
dos con el fin de eliminar toda po-
sible fuente de todo tipo de mos-
quitos que se reproducen en em-
balses de agua y en recipients
tales como latas, frascos y botellas.
Otro factor decisive en el 6xito de
dicha campafia ha sido la coope-
raci6n de los residents de todos
los poblados.
Una campafia conjunta de la
Rep6blica de PanamA y la Zona
del Canal, durante 1949 y 1950,
elimin6 el mosquito en ambas re-
giones. Desde entonces, la Direc-
ci6n de Salubridad ha informado
todos los afios a la Organizaci6n
Panamericana de la Salud que una
continue vigilancia de la Zona del
Canal ha dado por resultado que
no hay indicaciones de la existen-
cia del mosquito en esta Area.
A pesar de que la erradicaci6n
del Aedes Aegypti en el Continen-
te Americano se inici6 hace 26
aiios, el progress de la campaiia
ha sido lento v, seg6n inform el
Dr. Garcia al Director de Salubri-
dad, varies paises que anteriormen-
te habian sido liberados de dicho
mosquito han vuelto a infestarse
con 6l.
La presencia continuada de di-
cho mosquito represent un peli-
gro en el Continente Americano,

Actualmente, existen 36 perso-

mais de 100 afios de edad, que reci-

bilaciones del Servicio Civil de
Una mujer, de 108 afios, es la de
mnis edad del grupo y se jubil6 en
1934 de la Administraci6n de Ve-
teranos. Los demas son: un hom-
bre de 106 afios. una mujer de
104, dos mujeres y cuatro hom-
bres de 102 afios, tres mujeres y
ocho hombres de 101 afios y tres
mujeres y 13 hombres de 100 afios.
El mais viejo de todos los pen-
sionados fue Mark Thrash, de Chi-
ckamauga, Georgia, quien tenia
casi 123 afios cuando muri6 en
1943. Thrash habia nacido el dia
de Navidad de 1820. Ya tenia 99
afios cuando se puso en vigor el
Sistema de Jubilaciones del Servi-
cio Civil. Trabaj6 durante 28 afios
como obrero en el Parque Militar
National de Chickamauga-Chatta-
nooga y se jubil6 a los 101 alios, en

Thrash fue el padre de 27'hijos.
Cuando muri6, vivia con su quinta
esposa, habiendo sobrevivido a las
otras cuatro. Se cas6 por quinta
vez cuando tenia 107 afios.
QuizAs lo mas interesante de
toda la vida de Thrash es que
cuando ya no podia caminar hasta
la Oficina de Correos del Parque
Military Nacional de Chickamauga,
mandaba a su hijo de 90 afios a
que le buscara el cheque.

Desde que nacemos adquirimos ciertos hAbitos que se perpetuian durante
nuestra vida. Uno de estos habitos es el que se refiere a lo ordenados o desor-
denados que somos. La necesidad de orden y limpieza existe no solo en
nuestra vida privada sino en el trabajo y en nuestra vida de relaci6n, por lo
tanto el habito que adquiramos sobre este particular se dejara sentir en
todos los Atmbitos de nuestra actuaci6n.
El ser ordenados y limpios nos deparara no solo satisfacciones personales
y nos ganarA el respeto de nuestros semejantes sino que sera un aspect muy
important en la preservaci6n de nuestra integridad fisica. La persona des-
cuidada estt constantemente expuesta a tener accidents. Sabemos que uno
de los pilares bAsicos de la prevenci6n de accidents es el Orden y Limpieza
y quien debilite sus cimientos correr- el riesgo de que este pilar se le caiga
A muchos trabajadores les parece exagerado el esfuerzo que hacen las
compaiiias por iantener los lugares de trabajo limpios y ordenados, pero
si se pusieran a analizar las posilles conscciencias que un tropezon debido
a un objeto que se dej6 tirado puede tender tanto para ellos como para sus
tamilias, tendrian un cuidado muy especial no s6lo en arrojar cosas sino en
levantar las aue se eneuentran caidas.
