She suggested the council meet
with the Personnel Director and Di-
rector of Equal Employment Oppor-
tunity or their representatives on a
quarterly basis.
The Council is to serve as a
listening post for problems that are
unique and common to women and
also to act in an advisory capacity
to and for women of the Canal or-
ganization. Women serving on the
council should be vitally interested
in upgrading the role of women in
Government and community life.

Severely crippled and deformed
for 2 years, a 13-year-old girl from
the village of San Cristobal, a 12-
hour jaunt by truck, cayuco and foot
from Colon, is today an attractive
teenager with only a slight limp,
thanks to the treatment she received
from the medical and surgical per-
sonnel at Gorgas Hospital.
As the result of an old machete
wound that became infected, she
was able to hobble about only with
great difficulty, her knee doubled
at all times. Walking was a painful
ordeal and the deformity a dis-
heartening affliction for the young
girl. Doctors at Gorgas performed
two major operations on her left
knee. The first one straightened out
the knee and the second one fused
the thigh bone to the leg bone. She
was in a cast for several months.
Last month she was released from
all treatment, her leg straight and
painless. She walks with ease, the
hint of a limp the only remaining
trace of her former deformity.
Unusual Cases
The young girl from San Cris-
tobal is one of the 67 unusual cases
treated at Gorgas Hospital last year
under the Professional Education
Program. Patients are selected on
the basis of the teaching value and
unusual conditions involved in each
case. This program makes it pos-
sible for many non-U.S. citizens,
who require hospital treatment but
who cannot afford the full costs of
hospitalization, to be provided nec-
essary care free of charge, or at re-
duced rates. These patients receive
the same level of medical care as
those paying for hospitalization. Of
the 67 new cases in 1972, a total of
58 were treated on the "no pay"
basis. Special rates were established
for the others and one patient paid
$2,000 for treatment. Medical costs
for the girl from San Cristobal
amounted to more than $14,000.
The Professional Education Pro-
gram last year provided medical
services valued at more than

Plans for the new Balboa Service
Center, the proposed renovation to
the Gatun Service Center and pro-
jects for improving traffic and park-
ing problems in the Canal Zone
were among the topics discussed
last week by Gov. David S. Parker
at the executive session of the U.S.
Civic Councils.
Also present were Lt. Gov.
Charles I. McGinnis; William De
La Mater, Aide to the Governor
and Civic Council Staff Officer;
Col. A. L. Romaneski, Engineering
and Construction Director; R. K.
Erbe, Supply and Community Serv-
ice Director; R. P. Laverty, Gen-
eral Manager, Supply Division;
C. L. Latimer, Jr., Deputy Super-

intendent of the Division of Schools;
Robert J. Saarinen, Superintendent,
Food Service Branch, Supply Divi-
sion; and Ronald L. Seeley, Chief,
Labor-Management Relations Staff,
Personnel Bureau.
After welcoming new members,
Governor Parker introduced Colo-
nel Romaneski who displayed an
architect's drawing of the new Bal-
boa Service Center pointing out that
a ramp for the use of the handi-
capped was one of the features in-
cluded for the convenience of cus-
Limitation on Funds
Erbe pointed out that the build-
ing had been designed to be as
attractive as possible within the
limitations of the location and the
funds available for its construction.
The building is expected to be com-
pleted about December 1974. Erbe
explained that moving of all serv-
ices from the present building
should be completed about May 21,
1973. The barber and beauty shops
are being relocated above the dental
clinic building 722, Balboa. The
tailor and dressmaking shops have
already been moved to the Diablo
Service Center, which is being ex-
panded to handle extra business
generated by closing the Balboa
Service Center.
Douglas Schmidt, president of
the Pacific Civic Council, asked
about the possibility of a banquet
room. Erbe explained that local
clubs have expanded their facilities
since the Tivoli was demolished
and that a banquet room at the
Service Center is no longer needed.
When questioned about what
happened to the plans for a service
center to be located on Sosa Hill,
Governor Parker said that it was not
a convenient location for the type
of facility that was needed. As to
the problem of parking for the new
restaurant, the Governor said that
a study had determined that ade-
quate parking is available in the
Balboa area.
Gatun Service Center
Colonel Romaneski also presented
a drawing of plans for the Catun
Service Center which will have a
superette, a small restaurant, a
76-seat mini theater for 16mm.
films, a one chair barber shop, a
3,000 volume library, a post office,
and new toilet facilities. It is ex-
pected to be completed in May
Plans for increasing the number
of parking spaces at the Adminis-
tration Building, which include re-
locating the weather station and in-
creasing the number of spaces for
small cars, were also presented by
Romaneski. A study shows that
there are now 302 spaces available
and plans are to add 25 more.
He also discussed the new Pier
Street extension, and planned im-
provements to the signal at Gamboa
Bridge, the entrances to Fort Clay-
ton and Fort Kobbe, and new safety
features for the Thatcher Ferry

Crippled From Polio
Among the 38 special interest
cases treated in the Gorgas Ortho-
pedic Service last year is another
young girl, this one from La Cho-
rrera. She was crippled from polio-
myelitis which she had when she
was an infant and had never walked.
Several months ago, multiple bone
stablizing and tendon transfers were
performed to her lower extremities.
Following these procedures and an

extensive physical therapy program,
she was able to walk with crutches
and braces. Another operation was
performed to stablize a joint in her
right hip and she is now walking.
Another child from the same area
will be living a normal life because
of the treatment she has received
from the Professional Education
Program. Due to the dislocation of
her left knee since she was 19
months old, the child had to walk
with a homemade crutch as her left
leg was 42 inches shorter than her
right leg. In this completely un-
stable condition, the child plodded

Bridge. The number of signs on the

Increased School Year
Dr. Latimer presented a proposal
to increase the school year by 3 days
for pupils and 5 days for teachers
beginning with the 1973-74 session.
He said this would increase the
quality of education available to
children in the Canal Zone. A num-
ber of members of the Civic Coun-
cil brought up problems they fore-
saw in this, including the scheduling
difficulties this would cause for
people going on vacation and home
leave to the United States. Governor
Parker said that the plan would be
studied carefully.
Mrs. Esther Bell, president of
Cristobal, Margarita, Brazos Heights
Civic Council, expressed concern
over the problems of 10-speed bi-
cycles which are producing a safety
hazard and suggested that bicycle
paths are needed in dangerous
areas. The Governor said extensive
ones could not be developed at this
time, but he would look into the
Capt. John Meeker, vice president
of the Cristobal, Margarita, Brazos
Heights Civic Council, said that
there should be more stringent tests
for ambulance drivers to require
them to be able to lift adults and
carry them down two flights of
stairs. The Governor said that work
has started to change Canal Zone
regulations to require more frequent
physical examinations for the drivers
and to change the examination
Cutting of Palms
Hank Thompson, president of
the Gamboa Civic Council, said he
was concerned about the cutting of
the 30- to 40-year-old palms in front
of the Port Captain's Office in Bal-
boa. The Governor said he regretted
this and had agreed only after
thorough study because it was
essential to alleviate traffic conges-
tion in that area.
Several Civic Council members

REVIEW and said that they would
like to see it issued quarterly again.
Governor Parker expressed pleasure
that Council members are as ap-
proving of the REVIEW as he is. He
agreed to have the matter inves-
tigated to see if budgetary limita-
tions can be overcome.
When questioned about the re-
cent burning of Sosa Hill, Governor
Parker expressed regret and ex-
plained that on February 20, a grass
fire was started accidentally by
windblown sparks from a concrete
incinerator behind Balboa Elec-
trical Substation. A strong wind
spread the fire over the entire Sosa
Hill area, and it was necessary for
firemen to backfire the top of the
hill to prevent damage to facilities.
Damage to the seedings which had
been planted on the hill will not be
known until the rainy season begins.
The Governor added that the incin-
erator will not be used again and
will be demolished in the near

Gorgas Teaching Cases
(Continued from p. 1)

to school each day though her limits
of walking were about two to three
blocks and that was with great
difficulty. Treatment by Gorgas
physicians consisted of arresting the
growth of the normal leg, fusing the
dislocated left knee in a functional
position and lengthening the short
leg so that she can walk without a
pronounced limp.
Arthritis Victim
An unusual case of special inter-
est is that of a 28-year-old woman
who was totally bedridden for 8
years due to rheumatorid arthritis
that involved practically every joint
in her body. Today she is standing
and taking a few steps as the result
of treatment she has been receiving
at Gorgas Hospital as a teaching
case for the past 4 or 5 years. By
replacing major joints with artificial
ones, Gorgas doctors hope to permit
her to take care of her basic needs
and possibly even to perform some
activities which could help her make
a living. Her case so far has cost
$10,000, all free to her.
A 21-year-old man with a club
foot deformity since birth walked
out of Gorgas Hospital recently. He
walked normally with both feet on
the floor with only a small lift in his
right shoe to compensate for his
shorter right foot. He is one of
several who were treated as valu-
able teaching cases of this deformity
last year. His case cost almost
Non-Orthopedic Cases
In addition to the orthopedic
cases, nine patients received treat-
ment as unique medical teaching
cases for such diseases as anemia,
chonic glomerulonephritis, lympha-
denopathy and leishmaniasis. Five
patients were treated as teaching
cases in the Pediatric Service and
four unusual ailments of eye, nose
and throat were treated in the Eye,
Nose and Throat Service.
One of the three patients who re-
ceived treatment in the Surgical
Service recently through the teach-
ing program is a young man from
San Bias with cancer of the thyroid
gland. A major operation was per-
formed to remove the gland. The
young man has returned to his home
with a good chance for cure and a
new lease on life. All the necessary
follow-up examinations and treat-
ment will be provided at no expense
to him.

Jack Hays Named Scout

Executive in Griffin, Ga.

William J. Hays, who has been
Scout Executive of the Canal Zone
Council, Boy Scouts of America,
since July 1968, will leave the Isth-
mus March 15 to take a new posi-
tion in Griffin, Ga.
He has been named Scout exe-
cutive of the Flint River Council,
which has about three times the
number of Scouts as the Canal Zone
Council. Mrs. Hays, who is a
teacher at Curundu Junior High
School, and a son who attends the
school will depart for the United
States at the end of the school term.
Until a successor is named, Lowell
White, district Scout executive, will
serve as acting Scout executive.
A veteran Scout official, Hays
came to the Isthmus from Green-
ville, S.C., where he served for 14
years as assistant Scout executive
of the Blue Ridge Council.
Hays is a veteran of World

War II and served in the European
Theater from 1942 to 1945 with the
rank of first lieutenant. He was
awarded the Distinguished Flying
Cross, the Purple Heart and Air
Medal with two clusters.

settlement near Bocas del Toro is
today less dependent on others for
his existence. For more than 2 years
he sat by his hut, doing nothing be-
cause he was almost blind, with
glaucoma in one eye and a cataract
on the other. After treatment by
physicians in the Ophthalmology
Service, the man has made dramatic
improvement in regaining some
vision and bringing about his re-
habilitation. He was discharged last
November and according to reports
from his village he is doing fine.
Cost of medical treatment amounted
to more than $3,300.
These are only a few of the cases
treated through the Professional
Education Program last year. At the
end of the year, three inpatient
teaching cases remain at Gorgas
Hospital, 11 patients were dis-
charged in December. Their med-
ical services cost more than $47,000,
most of this sum written off in the
name of humanity.

Health Officials

Advise Caution

To Save Vision
To encourage greater awareness
of the importance of preserving
sight the U.S. Congress requested
and President Richard M. Nixon
proclaimed, the week of March 4,
1973, as "Save Your Vision Week."
In his proclamation President
Nixon states, in part:
"Like many precious possessions,
eyesight is usually taken for granted
until it is lost. Yet the preservation
of vision-one of the life's greatest
blessings-need not be left to
chance. There are steps all of us
can take to keep our eyes healthy
for a lifetime of useful service."
"Simple safety precautions can
substantially reduce the number of
accidents which cause loss of vision.
Potential sources of eye injury in
the home, at work and at school
can be sought out and eliminated."
"However, most blindness in the
United States is the result not of
injury, but of disease. Proper atten-
tion to hygiene, good nutrition, and,
most important, regular professional
eve examinations can minimize the
visual disability. Glaucoma, one of
the most common eye diseases, can
be detected through a simple and
painless test and, if detected early,
can usually be arrested and con-
Health Bureau officials point out
that it is up to each individual to
protect and preserve his vision and
help to protect and preserve the
vision of other members of the
family. To achieve this, there are
some simple precautions that may
be taken:
1. Wear safety glasses-correc-
tion with protection, at work or
play, at home or outside.
2. Have enough light when you
read or work for best vision and
3. Be extra careful when work-
ing with tools.
4. Look away when opening
cans of acid or other strong liquids.
5. Remove all objects that stick
out at eye level in your home.
6. Teach children to be careful
with sticks, stones, arrows, air guns,
7. Choose safe toys for children.
8. Keep ice picks, scissors and
other sharp instruments out of chil-
dren's reach.
9. If something gets in your eye,
see a physician or nurse at once.
10. Have a professional eye ex-
amination regularly.

Program del Gorgas . ..
(Viene de la pdgina 1)

solamente uno de los 67 casos extra-
ordinarios de studio que fueron
atendidos en el Hospital Corgas el
afio pasado, dentro del Programa de
Educaci6n Profesional. Los pacien-
tes son seleccionados en base de su
valor educativo y las condiciones
extraordinarias de cada caso. El pro-
grama permit a muchos pacientes
de PanamA, que necesitan trata-
miento hospitalario pero que no
pueden pagar el costo total de hos-
pitalizaci6n, ser atendidos gratis o
a precious reducidos. Dichos pacien-
tes reciben la misma atenci6n m6-
dica que los que pagan. De los 67
casos de 1972, 58 fueron atendidos
gratis. Se establecieron tarifas es-
peciales para los otros y uno de ellos
pag6 $2.000 por su tratamiento. El
costo de la atenci6n m6dica a la jo-
vencita de San Crist6bal fue de mis
de $14.000.
El Program de Educaci6n Pro-
fesional proporcion6 el afio pasado
atenci6n m6dica a un costo de mis
de $162.550. Cada uno de dichos
casos fue atendido con el conoci-
miento y aprobaci6n de las autori-
dades de Salubridad de la Repibli-
ca de PanamA.
Entre los 38 casos de interns es-
pecial atendidos en el Servicio Or-
top6dico del Gorgas, el afio pasado,
se encuentra otra jovencita proce-
dente de La Chorrera. Estaba invA-
lida debido a un ataque de polio-
mielitis que habia tenido cuando
era reci6n nacida y nunca habia ca-
minado. Hace various meses, se le
hicieron various transplants de ten-
dones y multiples estabilizaciones
de huesos en sus extremidades infe-
riores. Despu6s de este process y
de un program extensive de tera-
pia fisica, pudo caminar con mule-
tas y abrazaderas. Se le hizo otra
operaci6n para estabilizar una co-
yuntura en la cadera derecha y
ahora camina perfectamente.
Otra nifia del mismo lugar podrA
l1evar una vida normal gracias al
tratamiento que recibi6 bajo el Pro-
grama de Educaci6n Profesional.
Debido a que se disloc6 Ia rodilla
izquierda cuando tenia 19 meses, la
nifia tenia que caminar con una mu-
leta rristica, puesto que su pierna
izquierda era 4V2 pulgadas m6s cor-
ta que la derecha. Asi tenia que ca-
minar trabajosamente hasta la es-
cuela todos los dias. No podia ca-
minar mAs de 3 cuadras y lo hacia
con gran dificultad. Los m6dicos del
Hospital Gorgas le disminuyeron el
crecimiento de la pierna normal, le

unieron la rodilla izquierda dislo-
cada de manera que pudiera fun-
cionar, le alargaron la otra pierna y
asi pudo caminar casi sin cojear.
Un caso de interns especial es el
de una mujer de 28 afios que estuvo
en cama durante 8 aiios, debido a
una arthritis reumatoide que le afec-
taba prActicamente todo el cuerpo.
Hoy se levanta de la cama y puede
caminar various pasos, debido al tra-
tamiento que ha estado recibiendo
en el Hospital Gorgas como caso de
studio, durante los l6timos 4 6 5
afios. Los m6dicos del Gorgas espe-
ran que Ilegue a poder tender sus
necesidades basicas y posiblemente
Ilegue a efectuar algunas activida-
des para ganarse la vida. Su caso
hasta ahora ha costado $10.000.
Un hombre de 21 afios sali6 ca-
minando recientemente del Hospi-
tal Gorgas, curado de un pie calci-
neo que habia sufrido desde su na-
cimiento. Ahora camina normalmen-
te con los dos pies, teniendo s61o
que usar el zapato derecho un poco
elevado. Es uno de los various casos
de studio de esta deformidad que
fueron atendidos el afio pasado y
cost casi $5.000.
Uno de los tres pacientes que re-
cibieron tratamiento quir6rgico por
medio del program de studios es
un joven de San Bias con cAncer en
la tiroides. Mediante una operaci6n
mayor se le extirp6 la glAndula. El
joven ha regresado a su hogar con
una gran oportunidad de curarse y
de seguir viviendo.
Un hombre de 52 afios, de una
pequefia aldea cerca de Bocas del
Toro, depend much menos de los
demas para poder seguir viviendo.
Durante mas de 2 afios permaneci6
sentado cerca de su cabafia, sin ha-
cer nada debido a que estaba casi
ciego, con glaucoma en un ojo y ca-
tarata en el otro. Despu4s de ser
tratado por los m6dicos del Servi-
cio de Oftalmologia, el hombre ha
mejorado dramAticamente, recobra-
do algo de su vista y hecho possible
su rehabilitaci6n. Fue dado de alta
en noviembre y, de acuerdo con los
informes que se reciben, estA muy
bien. El costo de su atenci6n m6di-
ca fue de mis de $3.300.
Al final del afio, tres casos de es-
tudio de pacientes internos perma-
necian en el Gorgas, mientras que
once fueron dados de alta en di-
ciembre. El costo de su atenci6n
m6dica, de mas de $47.000, en su
mayor parte fue cancelado como un
servicio a la humanidad.
