Work Is on

Work is progressing on schedule
along a 3-mile stretch of Thatcher
Highway between Bruja Road and
the top of Boy Scout Hill where a
series of improvements are being
The project, begun in April 1972,
is scheduled to be completed in
June by the Foster Construction
Co. (Panama) S.A., which entered
a bid of $719,342. Gov. David S.
Parker turned the first shovel of
earth and officially inaugurated the
Work consists of widening 2
miles of road from 18 to a minimum
of 20 feet and 1 mile of road, up
Boy Scout Hill, from 22 to 33 feet,
providing a climbing lane for slower
moving traffic on the up-grade of
the hill. Other work in the contract
includes extension and replacement
of culverts, improvement of drain-
age ditches, laying asphaltic con-
crete over the entire roadway
within the project limits, providing
of 6-foot wide shoulders with bi-
tuminous surface treatment on both
sides of the road and breaking out
and replacing deteriorated pave-
ment throughout. The VelAsquez
River Bridge also is being widened
from 20 to 27 feet.
Constructed in 1931, Thatcher
Highway is the final link in the
Interamerican Highway between
Alaska and the Panama Canal. At
present, it handles about 8,000 ve-
hicles a day and this number is ex-
pected to double by 1980. It is
used principally by commuters
between Panama City and interior
provinces, truckers and vacationists
headed for the beaches and other
interior recreational attractions.
While this work is being carried
out, motorists are being inconveni-
enced temporarily by slowdowns in
the flow of traffic. But when it is
completed, the highway will pro-
vide a better and safer passage
through the area.
The Thatcher Highway project
is one of a series of road improve-
ments being carried out to alleviate
traffic bottlenecks within the Canal
Zone. First to be completed was
the series of improvements to Bal-
boa Road between Stevens Circle
and Amador Road, including the
widening of Balboa Road, realign-
ment of Barnebey Street and Pear-
son Street plus a new traffic signal
A second project, begun the past
September, takes in work at the
complex of intersections in Ancon
including Roosevelt Avenue, Gail-
lard Highway, Kennedy Avenue,
Frangipani Street, Chepo Street
and National Avenue. The improve-
ments will include a new traffic
signal system, a new parking area
with access on to M Street in Pan-
ama and the widening of and addi-
tional lanes within or approaching
the intersection area on Kennedy
Avenue, Gaillard Highway and
Avenida L. F. Clement.

Poultry Prices

Going Up in


Patrons of Panama Canal super-
markets and cafeterias can expect
to see substantial price increases for
poultry products, partly as a result
of bad weather conditions that have
curtailed the availability of feed
and the supply of poultry in the
United States.
Food prices in general have been
rising at a rapid pace in the United
States. The Bureau of Labor Sta-
tistics recently reported that gro-
cery price increases in January con-
stituted the greatest monthly jump
since the bureau began keeping
separate figures orn grocery prices
in 1952.
Meat prices have been affected
considerably and consumers will
note some rather extreme price in-
creases for poultry products par-
ticularly. Representatives of the
poultry industry report that they do
not anticipate any drop in the prices
before midyear.

A highly qualified expert in com-
bating smuggling and abuse of nar-
cotics has arrived on the Isthmus to
initiate new antidrug programs and
to upgrade existing ones within
Canal Zone agencies.
Steven B. Cummings, a U.S. Cus-
toms agent, was brought to the
Canal Zone in conjunction with the
overall United States effort through-
out the world to stem the flow and
use of narcotics. He will serve as
principal staff adviser to the Gov-
ernor and to the Civil Affairs Di-
rector in all areas of drug abuse and
traffic control.
Cummings is expected to improve
the effectiveness of a growing num-
ber of contacts between officials of
the Canal Zone, United States Em-
bassy, Republic of Panama and
United States based agencies who
are committed to combating the
flow of drugs in international trade.
He is meeting with members of
the Police and Customs Divisions for
a series of discussions which cover
narcotics identification, search and'
seizure and surveillance techniques.
A native of Minnesota, Cummings
comes to the Canal Zone from the
Customs Office in Los Angeles,
Calif., where for 7 years he was a
special agent devoting most of his
time to fighting the trafficking of
narcotics via aircraft. Cummings
holds a bachelor's degree in crimi-
nology from Long Beach College.

Residents Urged

To Use Caution

With Wild Pets
Canal Zone Health officials wish
to advise all residents to use ex-
treme caution in handling unusual
or exotic housepets.
Canal Zone residents have made
pets of such animals as marmosets,
margays, coatimundis, sloths, kin-
kajous and many other varieties.
One disease, rabies, had not been
detected in wild animal species on
the Isthmus, except for bats, until
recently when it was traced to a
squirrel purchased in San Blas by
an Atlantic side resident. Two days
after appearing ill, the squirrel bit
the owner on the finger and died
the next day. Tests performed on
the animal's brain revealed that it
had died of rabies. The owner is
currently being treated with anti-
rabies vaccine.
Another case of rabies recently
was traced to a pet ocelot. The
animal died in Nicaragua and its
brain was sent to the Division of
Veterinary Medicine here in the
Canal Zone for laboratory con-
Disease controls that can be used
with domestic animals, such as vac-
cination, stray animal collection
and licensing, cannot be applied to
wild species.
Owners of any pets, whether
they be common domestic animals,
such as dogs and cats, or wild
species, should contact the Divi-
sion of Veterinary Medicine if their
pets die, become ill, aggressive,
bite or scratch.

Don't Need Arrow

To Make Left Turn

If Light is Green
Motorists are advised that at in-
tersections having green arrows for
left turns, they are allowed to turn
left with a regular green light, if
the way is clear, without waiting
for the green arrow.
Canal Zone Police point out as
examples the intersections of Bal-
boa Road with La Boca Road, Bal-
boa Road with Amador Road and
Fourth of July Avenue and Gorgas
Road. Unnecessary delays result at
these locations when drivers wait
for the green arrow instead of
making a legal left turn with the
regular green light when the way
is clear.
