"The excellent performance of
your organization in response to
our request for assistance to con-
tain and collect the oil spill result-
ing from the collision of the MV
Nopal Sea and our barge Chilibre,
was only possible through the efforts
of the men who were assigned to
direct the oil recovery operation in
the field.
"Along the above lines we wish
to give special recognition to Mr.
J. A. Feely, Oil Pollution Control
Inspector, Terminals Division, for
his dedicated and outstanding par-
ticipation in the operation in refer-
"Our appreciation is also ex-
tended to all members of your
organization who directly or in-
directly contributed to this sucess-
ful operation and particularly, to
those on the attached list."

Proclaims March

Red Cross Month
President Richard M. Nixon has
proclaimed March as Red Cross
Month and in a memorandum has
asked that the Federal Government
and its employees give their fullest
support to this organization, which
stands constantly ready to be of
service wherever it is needed.
In his memorandum, the Presi-
dent stated:
"Red Cross Month is a time for
every American to reflect upon the
vital role the Red Cross and its
volunteers play to alleviate suffering
and to meet a vast spectrum of
human needs in our society.
Through the Red Cross, we donate

Voting Assistance

Booklet Available

For U.S. Citizens
Copies of Voting Assistance
Guide, a booklet which provides
valuable voting information for
each state, have been distributed
to all bureaus, divisions, and inde-
pendent units and to the main Canal
Zone Library-Museum and branch
Copies are also being provided
to business, fraternal, and employee
organizations in the Canal Zone.
The Voting Assistance Guide
contains absentee registration and
voting rules for every State and
U.S. Territory, general information
on voting, Congressional District
maps, a county seat and Zip Code
directory, primary election dates,
and essential registration and voting
Applications for absentee ballots
may be obtained by U.S.-citizen
employees at Building 449-X, Por-
tobello Street, Ancon (telephone
52-3229). The applications will be
mailed upon request. Persons with
questions concerning voting may
call the same number for assistance.

Through the years, the Type-17's
were renovated, repainted and
modernized as long it was econom-
ical to do so. Eventually, however,
investment in this type of unkeep
reached the point of diminishing
returns and gradually they were
ordered demolished. The Plank
Street houses being torn down will
make room for 14 of the 48 con-
temporary masonry quarters for
which a contract will be let in June.
The balance of the new quarters
will be constructed in other U.S.
community townsites on both sides
of the Isthmus.
Announcement that approval had
been obtained for the construction
of the new housing units was made
by Gov. David S. Parker last Sep-
The large housing construction
project represents an acceleration of
the Canal's program to replace 100
substandard U.S. quarters. Last
year, 10 new two-story, masonry
housing units were completed and
assigned to families on both sides
of the Isthmus. Six of the new du-
plex apartments were constructed
on La Boca Road and four were
built on Third Street, Margarita.
Ten additional duplexes of this
type were contracted for last May,
two of which were built in Mar-
garita. Four will be built on La
Boca Road and four on Hospital
Road in Corozal.
The housing shortage was par-
tially alleviated last year when 24
masonry units, eight bachelor and
16-family quarters, were turned
over to the Panama Canal by the
Federal Aviation Administration,
which considered them surplus to
current needs.

Dredging Div.

Helps to Ease

Fuel Shortage
The Dredging Division has
changed its work schedule so that
day shift employees may take the
train to Camboa. The measure was
taken to minimize the impact of
the fuel crisis.
The working hours during the
day shift have been changed from
the former schedule of 7 a.m. to
3:30 p.m. with a %2 hour for lunch
to 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., with no
lunch hour. This new work sched-
ule allows employees to commute
to and from work on the Panama
Railroad, which the) were unable
to do under the previous schedule.
Eliminating the V/ hour for lunch
means that the employees must eat
on the job or during the normal
coffee break. The change in hours
was discussed with employee repre-
sentatives before it was imple-
mented. The major objective of the
new program is to allow the em-
ployees to use the mass transit
means of going to and from work as
a way of cutting back on the demand
for gas. And, with the spiraling cost
of gas, the commuter system can
save Dredging Division employees
gas expense money.
So far, the new hours and the
use of rail transportation appear to
be popular with the employees,
particularly among Panama City
residents. Walter W. Fade, Chief
of the Division, estimated that
approximately 50 percent of the day
shift workers living in Panama City
are now using the train instead of

ness managers of these agencies.
To combat this, training sessions
in the detection and handling of
counterfeit currency have been ar-
ranged by the General Manager of
the Panama Canal Supply Divi-
sion and the Canal organization's
Treasurer. Treasurer Cecil Kovel
recently attended an intensive
course with the U.S. Secret Service
in Washington. lie will conduct a
series of sessions on the subject at
sales locations in the Canal Zone,
including military posts.
It is a duty of money handlers to
use reasonable care to detect coun-
terfeit money and report question-
able money to their supervisors.
When a counterfeit is detected, the
Police are required to confiscate it
without compensation to the person
who presents it.
These procedures may cause
customer delays at sales and cashier
locations. Customers are requested
to bear with the situation and co-
operate in the investigation of
questionable currency.

DeMolay Week

To Be Observed
The week of March 17 through
23 is DeMolay Week, when each
day of the week will be dedicated
to one of the cardinal virtues of
DeMolay, which are reverence,
filial love, patriotism, courtesy,
cleanness, fidelity and comradeship.
The Order of DeMolay was
founded by Frank S. Land in Kansas
City, Mo., in 1919 and is an inter-
national youth organization for
young men whose purpose is the
building of better citizens. Activi-
ties range from community service
projects to social affairs and athlet-
ics. The Order of DeMolay also
impresses responsibility and self-
reliance on young men through a
dramatic and solemn ritual. Each
DeMolay chapter is sponsored by
a recognized group of Masons to
provide dependable leadership.
DeMolay is not affiliated with the
Masonic institution, nor is it a
junior Masonic organization.
DeMolay provides a wholesome
occupation for a young man's spare
time, worthwhile associates, the
best of environment, and an inter-
esting and complete program of
all-round youth development. Any
boy between the ages of 13 and
21 who believes in Cod, is of good
character and reputation, and peti-
tions a DeMolay chapter is eligible
for membership. The Pacific Chap-
ter encourages any interested per-
sons to call Paul Londynsky at
52-2473 or Richard Slolk, 52-7203,
or write to the Pacific Chapter,

Canal Zone firemen followed by
the Canal Zone police found every-
thing under control-the fire out
and damage at a minimum. There
was nothing more to be done but
turn olf the electric current and
overhaul the premises.
Firemen reported that the blaze
was caused by a shorted electric
air-conditioner plug in the living
room. From the appearance of the
scorched wall, burned curtains, and
charred furniture, the fire could
have been extensive with smoke and
water damage to the house and
household effects.
Lt. R. E. Hamor of the Mount
Hope Fire Station personally com-
mended Mrs. Pritham for her action.
Mrs. Pritham, a prime example
of an unflappable Down Easter, is
the mother of the Canal Zone school
physician on the Atlantic side.

laciones internacionales. Sobre la

dada al studio y a los paseos de
playa que cualquier otra cosa, Cora
perteneci6 hace algunos aios al
Cine Club de La Salle, que promo-
via la exhibici6n de peliculas de
fondo y su discusi6n. Sus aficiones
incluyen el baile, la m6sica de toda
clase, principalmente la instrumen-
tal. Antes de su actual experiencia

dico cardi6logo en PanamA por
breve tiempo. Mientras trabajaba

La Sra. Pritham, quien reside en
Greenville Junction, Maine, esta
visitando a su hijo en la Zona del
Canal y lo mejor que pudo pasar
es que ella estuviera cuidando la
casa ese dia.
Se encontraba en el jardin cuan-
do not6 que salian llamas y humo
de la sala de la casa. Corri6 aden-
tro e hizo todas las cosas debidas.
Primero llam6 al "0' a la operaria
de telefonos, porque no sabia el
nimero de los bombers.
Despues de informal el incendio,
llen6 una palangana de agua en el
fregador de la cocina y proccdi6 a
extinguir las llamas por su cuenta.
Dos carrots bomba de Mount
Hope respondieron a la alarma, pero
cuando los bombers de la Zona
del Canal Ilegaron, seguidos de
unidades de la policia, encontraron
que todo estaba bajo control, el in-
cendio apagado y los dafios redu-
cidos al minimo. No hubo otra cosa
que hacer que cortar la corriente
el6ctrica y arreglar el lugar.
Los bombers informaron que el
incendio fue causado por el toma-
corriente en corto circuit de un
acondicionador de aire y que estaba
instalado en la sala. Seg6n como se
vcian la pared, las cortinas y los
muebles, todos chamuscados, el
incendio pudo haber sido grande y
haber causado grandes dafios, de-
bido al humo y al agua, tanto en
la misma casa come en los articulos
que estaban dentro de ella.
El Teniente R. E. Hamor, de la
Estaci6n de Bomberos de Mount

En EE. UU. se Habla de la Amistad

De Exploradores Cunas y Locales

Los Exploradores de las Islas de

y la amistad que se ha establecido
entire los dos grupos, fueron el tema
de un articulo de 4 paginas que apa-
reci6 recientemente en "Boys' Life",
revista escultista que tiene una cir-
culaci6n de casi mill6n y medio de
El articulo, titulado "Aventura

actividades escultistas en uni6n de
sus colegas de la raza Cuna, miem-
bros de la primera tropa que se
fund en dichas islas. A la cabeza
de los 16 Exploradores de la Zona
del Canal estaba James A. Hattrick,
jefe de la Tropa 31 y president del
Comit6 de Relaciones Internaciona-
les del Consejo.
Los muchachos de la Tropa 44
de San Bias y los de la Zona del
Canal se divieron en patrullas de
manera que cada patrulla tuvicra,
por lo menos dos inuchachos de la
Zona del Canal que hablaran in-
gl6s. Si cl lider de la patrulla per-
tenecia a una tropa, el ayudante
debia ser de la otra tropa.
Juntos levantaron campamentos,
nadaron, cocinaron, practicaron pri-
meros auxilios y otras habilidades
escultistas, contribuyendo asi a la
buena voluntad international. An-

Durante su visit a la Zona del

cieron una visit de cortesia al Vice-
gobernador Charles I. McGinnis,
quien era entonces president del
consejo. Tambien obsequialon al
Vicegobernador una paiioleta hecha

"Lucero", sobre el cuerpo del excelente vacuno, mientras su celoso cui-
52-2300 dador, Dionisio Portocarrero (Nicho), la sostiene por uno de los cuernos.

Muchos empleados del Canal se
dedican, fuera de sus horas de tra-
bajo, a actividades artisticas, a prac-
ticar la carpinteria, la mecinica y
hasta a explotar la agriculture.
Marcela de la Guardia, oficinista
supervisor de clasificaciones de la
Direcci6n de Personal, escogi6 de-
dicarse a la ganaderia de leche, ac-
tividad que recientemente le pro-
porcion6 una satisfacci6n sentimen-
tal, pues uno de sus ejemplares gan6
premio en su categoria durante la
reci6n finalizada Feria de La Cho-
"Lucero" es el nombre de la fina
vaca Holstein de propiedad de la
Srta. de la Guardia y de su hermano
Jos6 A. de la Guardia, que mereci6
la distinci6n de Campeona de Le-
che v el Primer Premio de Ganado
de Leche Nacional, en el tradicio-
nal event annual de La Chorrera.
Marcela compr6 a "Lucero" hace
cerca de 8 afios, cuando era una
ternera. La adquiri6 de un hermano
suyo, que a su vez la habia com-
prado a una prestigiosa hacienda
de ganado de raza en Panama. Para
entonces la ternera estaba en Chitr4
y era alimentada con mamadera.
Antes de pasar a la finca "El Arado",
de propiedad de Marcela, "Lucero"
ya habia ganado un premio como
la mejor ternera de leche en la Feria
de Azuero, uno de los events de
esta naturaleza de mayor calidad
El premio ganado por "Lucero"
en la Feria de La 'Chorrera, es
pues, su segunda distinci6n de esa
naturaleza en las dos competencias
on que ha participado.
"Lucero", segun explica su pro-
pietaria, produce un promedio de
10 a 18 litros diaries de leche, de-
pendiendo la cantidad de la esta-
ci6n, del past y del estado fisico
del animal.
Afirma Marcela que otra vaca
del hato de 39 ejemplares que man-
tiene en asocio con su hermano
Jose, tiene un promedio de rendi-
miento mAs alto que "Lucero", pero
no pudo llevarla a concursar. El
nombre de esta vaca es "La Negra".
Los hermanos de la Guardia ven-
den la leche product del ordefio
de la maiiana a la empresa Indus-
trias LActeas y la que se produce
en la tarde se entrega a la Central
de Lecherias.
Los animals, todos de la raza
IIolstein-famosa por su alta pro-
ducci6n de leche-son atendidos en
la finca "El Arado", por un celoso
cuidador, de nombre Dionisio Por-
tocarrero y conocido familiarmente
como Nicho.
Todos los animals son muy man-

sos, explica Marcela, "quizAs debi-
do a que desde pequefios se les
daba el alimento con la mano". A6n
hoy dia, el cuidador suele alimen-
tar personalmente a las vacas
Un detalle interesante del hato
de ganado de la finca "El Arado"
es que las vacas atienden al ser lla-
madas por su nombre. Y cuando se
pronuncia el nombre de "Lucero",
