Ernest W Zelnick


To Retire in April


Ernest W. Zelnick, who has been
Chief of the Engineering Division of
the Panama Canal Company for the
past 10 years and an engineer with
the Engineering and Construction
Bureau since 1939, is retiring from
service in April.
A native of Chicago, Zelnick was
graduated from the University of
Illinois Engineering School with a
degree in civil engineering. He
worked for the Illinois Water
Service Co. and Tennessee Valley
Authority in Tennessee before
coming to the Isthmus in 1.39 to
help build the Third Locks. He
decided to stay here and settle
down in the Canal Zone after meet-
ing and marrying Ruth Wright, a
local girl.
His only break in Canal service
came between 1942 and 1944 when
he served with the U.S. Army Engi-
neers in Wilmington. N.C.
After World War II, he returned
to the Isthmus as an engineer in
the Engineering Division and 4
years later was transferred to the
Maintenance Division. He was as-
signed to the Water and Labora-
tories Branch when the consolida-
tion of all water functions was made
in 1950.
The following year, he was made
chief of the branch and during the
11 years he held this job took an
active part in the expansion of the
Canal Zone water supply, with ex-
acting attention to the purity of the
water and its uninterrupted distribu-
tion to the Canal Zone communities
and the cities of Panama and Colon.
After 1 year as chief of the South-
ern District of the Maintenance Di-
vision, he took the post of Assistant
Designing Engineer and in 1964
succeeded Frank Lerchen as Chief
of the Engineering Division.
Zelnick has been active in civic
and community affairs during his
years of residence in the Canal Zone.
At present, he is president of the
Canal Zone Chapter of the Amer-
ican Red Cross.
Mr. and Mrs. Zelnick plan to live
in Hendersonville, N.C., where they
have purchased a home. Their

350 Students First Phase of Locks


To Fill Jobs Overhaul Comoleted


As Assistants

Approximately 350 student assist-
ant positions will be available with
the Canal organization for tem-
porary employment from May 27
through August 24. Both United
States and Panamanian citizens are
eligible.
Academic achievement and work
experience of each applicant will
be reviewed by employing divi-
sions. Applicants may indicate their
choices of four general occupational
groupings: technical, office and ad-
ministrative, manual, and sales and
service. But applications will be
reviewed for not more than two
occupational groupings within each
applicant's choices.
To ensure anonymity and impar-
tiality in selection, applications will
be referred by an identification num-
ber only rather than by name.
Those eligible are dependents of
residents of the Canal Zone or
Republic of Panama who, at the
time of application, are enrolled as
full-time seniors in any Canal Zone
or United States high school and will
graduate at the end of the 1973-74
school year; full-time students in a
junior college in the Canal Zone or
the United States; or full-time un-
dergraduate students in an ac-
credited college in the United States

Civic Councils Briefed


On Insurance, Housing


Health insurance programs and
the housing comparability study
were among the topics discussed at
the executive session of the U.S.
Civic Councils with Gov. David S.
Parker last week. Others present at
the meeting were Lt. Gov. Charles
I. McGinnis and William De La
Mater, Aide to the Governor and
Civic Council Staff Officer.
Lieutenant Governor McGinnis
welcomed the new members of the
councils and introduced William
Sullivan, Chief of Employee Serv-
ices Branch, who briefly discussed
insurance premiums and then in-
troduced Solomon Papperman, As-
sociate Director for Policy in the
Civil Service Commission's Bureau
of Retirement, Insurance and Occu-
pational Health.
Hospital Costs
Papperman stated that hospital
costs in the Canal Zone were not
yet as high as those in the United
States and that increases in in-
surance rates were the result of
rapidly rising health care and hos-
pital costs plus some abuses in use
of medical facilities. He also dis-
cussed some of the merits of the
various plans available to Panama
Canal Company-Canal Zone Gov-
ernment employees during employ-
ment and retirement.
A status report on the housing
comparability study was then pre-
sented by Fred Denton, Chief of
the Rates and Analysis Branch of
the Office of the Comptroller. Den-
ton explained that a comparability


study of Canal Zone quarters was
made by Hector Maldonado, a
Puerto Rican engineer and a former
Federal Housing Administration
employee, using housing in Maya-
guez, P.R., as part of the study.
Denton reported that the study
takes into consideration the age of
quarters, location, square footage,
number of bathrooms, garbage and
trash collection and improvements.
Comparability Study
Governor Parker explained that
a comparability study was recom-
mended by the Office of Manage-
ment and Budget for establishing
rents on Canal Zone quarters and
he emphasized that the study is still
being staffed and that it must be
presented to the Board of Directors.
The Civic Councils will be kept in-
formed at all times of the status of
the study.
Lieutenant Governor McGinnis
stated that as part of the energy con-
servation program improvements to
public transportation schedules to
make railroad and buses more at-
tractive would be implemented on
a trial basis if recommended by the
Councils. Proposed changes in Pan-
ama Railroad schedules were given
to the Councils for their considera-
tion, and the Councils were re-
quested to submit recommendations
on possible improved or new bus
routes.
The question of vocational train-
ing in the U.S. schools in the Canal
Zone was introduced by Mrs. Betty

The first phase of the Gatun
Locks overhaul has been completed
and work is moving ahead steadily
on the balance of the project, which
is expected to be concluded in the
middle of next month.
The east lane was taken out of
service March 3 for the construction
of lateral culvert bulkhead slots,

Air Force Band








To Give Concert
Col. Leslie E. . Romaneskins, comman-
der of the 24th Composite Group,
will present the 776th Air Force
Band in concert at 3 p.m., March 24,
at the Howard Theater. All military
members, civilian employees and
their dependents are invited.
Included in this free family en-
tertainment feature will be the
SouthCom Singers and the Aul worbas-
sadirs Dance Band.
The 90-minute program under
the direction of Capt. Nevin L.
Lantr. Leslie, band commander, will in-
clude marches, Broadway show
music, pop-rock songs, Dixieland,
country and western favorites, big
band sounds and patriotic selec-
tions.


which was finished on schedule
March 15, and for other work which
kept the lane out of service for
another week. Following the rehing-
ing of overhauled miter gates, today
the east lane will be placed back
into operation.
To reduce a backlog of ships ex-
pected to reach 60 today, both lanes
will be working today and tomor-
row. For a 48-hr period, the west
lane will operate with relay lock-
ages while the east lane operates
normally. The backlog will be cut
to approximately 30 if operations
continue to run smoothly. At the
conclusion of this period Sunday
morning, locomotives and other
equipment will be moved to the
east lane for relay lockages while
the west lane is out of service. Con-
struction of the bulkhead slots will
then begin in the west lane and
should be completed by April 6.
This work will be followed by the
rehinging of overhauled gates in
the west lane, scheduled for com-
pletion April 13, after which this
lane will be returned to service.
Total cost of the overhaul work
is estimated at $2,100,000 plus
$360,000 for the lateral culvert
bulkhead installation and $317,000
in major maintenance projects per-
formed during the lane outages.
Prior to the lane outages, con-
siderable work was required for the
overhaul of four miter gates at Bal-
boa, where they were towed follow-
ing removal from the locks in No-
vember. Corrosion was removed,

Electrical Power

Consumption Dips

In C.Z. Townsites
After the first full month of the
POWER Contest, results show that
there have been substantial savings
in the amount of electrical power
consumed.
For the month of February 1974,
the 406 contestants reduced their
power consumption nearly 13 per-
cent from the November 1973 base
and 12 percent from the January
1974 figure. The community show-
ing the greatest reduction was Dia-
blo Heights where contestants re-
duced their power consumption by
20.7 percent, followed closely by
both Santa Cruz and Gatun, each
with a 19.2 percent reduction.
By comparison with the base
figure for November 1973, the total
amount of electrical power saved
by the contestants alone was 130,260
kWh, which is equal to a savings
of 370 barrels of oil.
Several contestants have shown
drastic reductions which, if con-
tinued, will undoubtedly place them
amcng the prize winners in the
POWER Contest.
A random selection of the meter
readings for the community as a
whole shows that most households
are making an effort to conserve
electricity. Oil boycott or not, this
reduction in consumption will still
he of great importance in view of
the marked increases in fuel costs
for power generation.

Is Named To Honor

Fraternity at FSU To Perform Concert Here


Kenneth L. Underwood, a Canal
Zone police officer assigned to the
Balboa district, has been elected to
the Beta Gamma Sigma Fraternity
at Florida State University in Tal-
lahassee, Fla.
Officer Underwood was away
from the Isthmus on a year's leave
of absence for study purposes, dur-
ing which time he received a bach-
elor of science degree in business
administration and worked toward
a master's degree majoring in man-
agement.
Beta Gamma Sigma is the na-
tional society which recognizes ex-
cellence in academic achievement
in the action-oriented schools ac-
credited by the American Assembly
of Collegiate Schools of Business.
Election to membership in Beta
Gamma Sigma is the highest scho-
lastic honor that a student in busi-
ness administration can win. To be
eligible for membership, students
must rank in the upper 10 percent
of their senior class or rank in the
upper 20 percent of those receiving
master's degrees.


The Laurentian Singers, an elite
choral group of St. Lawrence Uni-
versity of Canton, N.Y., will present
a concert at the Balboa High School
Auditorium at 8 p.m., March 26, as
a feature of their concert tour of
Central and South America.
The choral group, under the di-
rection of Dr. Robert H. Jones, has
traveled widely in the United States
and Canada, where they were the
first choir ever to sing in Canada's
House of Parliament. They also
have appeared at the White House
and in 1972 made a 3-week Euro-
pean concert tour of seven coun-
tries which included performances
in London's Royal College of Music
and the famed Chartres Cathedral
in France.
They also have performed at col-
leges, high schools, hospitals, con-
ventions, service clubs, alumni
gatherings and on national televi-
sion broadcasts. Their repertoire
includes classical music, American
spirituals, popular music and South
American folk songs.


Recent visitor Frederick Banan, a graduate of Canal Zone College Class of
1935, the first class to graduate after the college was opened in 1933,
explains to his wife, Betty, some of the many changes he has found in the
Canal Zone since he left several years ago. Banan and his wife have a son,
Roger, who recently completed military service in the Navy.

Former Canal Zone Women


Featured in Florida Paper


The Sarasota Journal recently ran
a feature story about a group of
former Canal Zone women who
were honored at a luncheon hosted
by the New Sarasotans Club. Sev-
eral pictures of the event accom-
pany the story.
What made the luncheon meet-
ing newsworthy were the uncon-
ventional fashions worn by the
ladies who came attired in "polle-
ras," "montunos," and San Bias cos-
tumes, complete with the jewelry
and adornments that complement
these native costumes of Panama.
In addition to the wearing apparel
which was described in detail, there
was a display of jewelry, artifacts,
musical instruments and other Pan-
amanian objects that the former
Canal Zone residents had acquired
while living on the Isthmus. Covers
of Panama Canal Reviews were
used as wall decor and replicas of
thatched Indian huts were table
decorations.
According to the feature story,
the program had been planned by
the club's president, Mrs. George
Roth. Her husband retired from the
Police Division in 1970.
The story noted that among those
present was 99-year-old Mrs. Edith
Eppley who came to the Canal Zone
in 1910 and spent 30 years here. She
is quoted as saying that "it was a
rugged life, but a happy one with
close friendships formed through
sharing the same hardships."
Among the other guests men-
tioned are Della Noonan, who was
born in the Canal Zone in 1912 and
recalled that her father was in
charge of hiring laborers to build
the Canal;
Mrs. Michael Green and Mrs.
Robert Hammetter, who modeled
molass" worn by the Cuna Indian
women;
Mrs. Harry Cain, who spoke on
the churches in the Canal Zone in

Coco Solo Hospital

Needs Cooperation

To Improve Service
Coco Solo Hospital is attempting
to provide quicker service to pa-
tients using the General Outpatient
Clinic. To accomplish this will re-
quire increased usage of the appoint-
ment system.
The Director of Coco Solo Hos-
Spital is requesting Atlantic side res-
idents eligible for treatment at the
General Outpatient Clinic to tele-
phone for an appointment. The
number to call is 43-2655.
Of equal importance is the can-
cellation of appointments. If a per-
son is unable to keep an appoint-
ment he should call the same num-
ber to cancel the appointment.
More emphasis is being placed
on the appointment system to help
the staff provide quicker service for
people who are eligible for treat-
ment at Coco Solo Hospital.

by Joseph Stein. Lyrics are by
Sheldon Harnick and music by
Jerry Bock. The original produc-
tion was produced by Harold Prince
with choreography and direction
by Jerome Robbins. Bruce Quinn,
who has produced 10 United Way
and United Fund productions, will
again be in charge of production
of this year's United Way spec-
tacular. Lt. Col. Kenneth Pitman of
USARSO will coproduce "Fiddler"
with Quinn.
The show calls for a cast of
approximately 50 characters, res-
idents of Anatevka, a small village
in Russia, on the eve of the Russian
revolutionary period in 1905. It is
the story of a humble dairyman,
Tevye, his wife, and five daughters,
and the battle of man against man,
man against his environment, and
the battle of man against himself.
It is the story of the survival of
faith even under the most adverse
conditions.
The score of "Fiddler" is punc-
tuated with one of the best overall
musical scores of all times. Songs
include: "If I Were A Rich Man,"
"Sunrise, Sunset," "To Life L'Chai-
imn," "Miracles Of Miracles," and
"Do You Love Me?"
"Fiddler" will be presented in
conjunction with the Canal Zone
College as a musical comedy work-
shop and students at home for the
summer holidays and others may
earn two college credits enrolling
in the college workshop.

IO eOserve


Anniversary

This Sunday will mark the 50th
anniversary of the consecration of
the Cathedral of St. Luke, Ancon.
The public is invited to attend
the Golden Anniversary Service at
6 p.m. Choirs from the Cathedral
and other churches in the diocese
will assist. Gov. David S. Parker
will extend greetings on behalf of
the community, Bishop Lemuel B.
Shirley will preach, and Dean
Edwin C. Webster will officiate.
The Lessons will be read by Wil-
liam Y. Boyd and Gen. William B.
Rosson. A reception will follow in
Bishop Gooden Center, the rotunda
behind the Cathedral.
A small frame church, the Chapel
of St. Luke the Beloved Physician,
had been built on the site in 1908
with the encouragement of Col.
W. C. Gorgas, member of the first
church committee and lay reader.
During construction days and the
years of World War I, this building
served the needs of the hospital
and the community. Soon after the
war the Canal Zone was recognized
as a separate Missionary District of
the Episcopal Church and its first
bishop appointed, the Right Rev-
erend James Craik Morris. The con-
gregation had by then outgrown its
home. On the same site, in 1922,
the corner-stone was laid for the
present Cathedral of St. Luke. It
was to be the center of the Church's
work in the Canal Zone and the
adjacent areas of Panama.
After World War II, Bishop
Gooden, consecrated in 1945, saw
added to his jurisdiction first West-
ern Panama, then Costa Rica and
Nicaragua, then Colombia. Saint
Luke's became the Cathedral for
congregations under five nation's
flags. As work in these areas de-
veloped they became separate dio-
ceses with their own bishops. By
1964, diocesan boundaries were
more manageable, encompassing
Panama and the Canal Zone.
In 1972, Bishop Gooden was suc-
ceeded by the Right Reverend
Lemuel B. Shirley. Today the con-
gregation is multinational. The flags
of the United States and Panama
stand beside the banner of the Epis-
copal Church. There, too, is the
flag of Great Britain, a symbol of
its missionary heritage in the area
and of the churchmen from many
branches of the Anglican Commu-
nity who have found here a spiritual
home.

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Marzo 22, 1974


Gente en la Noticia


Faustino de la Cruz es un emplea-
do muy apreciado por compafieros
y superiores en la unidad de Man-
tenimiento del Hospital Gorgas, en
donde se desempeiia como encar-
gado de limpieza desde el 15 de
febrero de 1966. Comenz6 a tra-
bajar con el Canal precisamente el
dia de su cumpleaiios. El distintivo
que hoy identifica a los encargados
de la limpieza, se debe a su imagi-
naci6n. En efecto, Faustino com-
piti6 junto a otros compafieros en
el concurso para escoger el distin-
tivo de los encargados de la lim-
pieza, y su disefio fue escogido por
un jurado de cinco miembros. Su
creaci6n tiene el sentido y los colo-
res adecuados para identificar a los
encargados de la limpieza, comenta
uno de sus superiores. Consiste en
un cuadro verde, dentro del cual
hay cuatro flechas que forman un
circulo, y que llevan la identifica-
ci6n de los empleados encargados
de la limpieza en el Gorgas. Un
circulo verde mas pequefio, rodea-
do por las flechas, tiene la inscrip-
cion: "Zona del Canal de Panama".
De la Cruz explica el disefio, sefia-
lando que las flechas representan
la caracteristica permanent de la
tarea de limpieza, y que el blanco
significa pureza. El verde es el cla-
sico color de los hospitals, y el
circulo sirve s61o para colocar la
inscripci6n. El distintivo es usado
por los encargados de limpieza des-
de el pasado lunes 11 de marzo.
Faustino se siente muy orgulloso de
que su disefio, product de sus in-
quietudes por el dibujo desde que
era muy pequeiio, haya sido esco-
gido como el mejor. Nacido en San
Carlos, Provincia de CoclM, De la
Cruz hizo su primaria en su pueblo
natal. Posteriormente estudi6 elec-
tricidad por breve tiempo en el Ins
tituto TomAs Gabriel Duque, y los
conocimientos que adquiri6 le han

La nave taladro U.S. "Thor", aparece en la foto superior en uno de los
tramos del Canal en la ardua tarea de remover materials depositados en
el fondo de la via acuAtica, a fin de mantenerla a profundidad adecuada.
Empleando taladros de distintas classes, el "Thor" perfora roca y tierra
para depositar dinamita que al hacerse explotar permit a las dragas "Min-
di" o "Cascadas" recoger material que podria dificultar el paso de las naves.
El mantenimiento de la via interoccinica a profundidad adecuada es tarea
permanent de la Divisi6n de Dragado del Canal.


Agilizan Servicios Medicos


El Hospital de Coco Solo estia
haciendo esfuerzos por agilizar el
servicio a los pacientes que usan
los servicios de Consulta Externa.
Para lograr esto se requerirai un
incremento en el uso del sistenma
de citas.


I Precauciones Recomendadas I


SEn el Manejo
Las baterias tienen una aplica-
ci6n tan amplia en la vida modern
que es casi impossible que pase un
dia sin que, direct o indirectamen-
te, debamos usarlas. Debido a su
diario uso, y a su potential de cau-
sar incendios o corto circuitos-y
por ende dafios de mayor o menor
grado-conviene conocer su apro-
piado manejo.
De las baterias, las de mayor uso
public son, sin lugar a dudas, las
de plomo-Aicido, o sea aquellas que
emplean los vehiculos de transport
a motor.
Tales artefactos rcquieren las si-
guientes precauciones para evitar su
ignici6n y los consiguientes dafios a
la bacteria o al automivil:
Al examiner los orificios de ven-
ter debe emplearse linterna en lu-
gar de f6sforos, pues estos podrian
original la ignici6n;
No deben manejarse en las proxi-
midades sopletcs u otro equipo de
soldar;
Debe evitarse producer chispas
al conectar los polos de una batcria
con el chasis del auto o con una
herramienta;
Se dcbe tender extreme cuidado
cuando se emplea una bacteria en
buen estado, en un vehiculo, conec-
tlindola por sus terminales a la de
otro auto, para producer la energia
suficiente que lo haga arrancar. Al
retirar los cables debe hacerlo en
la forma debida, es decir sacando
primero el terminal positive de la
bacteria en mal estado, y luego se
hace lo propio con el terminal de
la bacteria que estal en buena condi-
ci6n. Sc sigue igual procedimiento
con los terminales negatives.
Al instalarse o retirarse una ba-
teria deben desconectarse todos los
accesorios del auto, incluyendo lu-
ces, radio, ventiladores, etc. Deben
cerrarse las puertas o bien cerrarse
el interruptor de las luces internal.


de Baterias
Debe evitarse general chispas
cuando se usa una lave para reti-
rar un cable de un terminal nega-
tivo de la bacteria, o cuando el ter-
minal positive se pone en contact
accidental con la carroceria;
Y finalmente, debe evitarse fu-
mar cigarrillos en las proximidades
o de manipular artefactos que pue-
dan original chispas cerca de una
bacteria, lo cual produciria el peligro
de que entire en ignici6n.
El mantener la tapa de venteo
debidamente cerrada constitute una
excelente media de precauci6n.
Tales tapas lenan el cometido de
conservar el acido electrolitico (o la
pasta quimica) dentro de la bacteria
y no permitir la entrada de sucie-
dad.
Una tapa mal colocada permit
la salida del Aicido, que puede co-
rroer los terminals y cables, redu-
ciendo la capacidad de la bacteria
de funcionar con su debida poten-
cia. Asimismo, se debe mantener
limpia la superficie de la bacteria,
lo cual se puede hacer lavAndola
periodicamente con una soluci6n de
1V taza de polvo de hornear (bicar-
bonato de soda) cn un balde de
agua o verti6ndole cuidadosamente
un balde de agua tibia.
Despu(s de lavar y raspar cuida-
dosamente los bornes, deben reves-
tirse con grasa para evitar su corro-
sion.
Las medidas preventivas son tan
importantes como el mantener en
excelente estado la bacteria, pues ella
juega un papel de primer orden en
el moviminto de los vehiculos a
motor.


Maneje con cuidado,
detrdis de una pelota
siempre va un nifo.


El Director del Hospital de
Coco Solo solicita a los residents
del sector Atlintico que deseen usar
tales servicios en la Clinica de Con-
sulta Externa, que Ilamen por tel&-
fono para obtener cita. El nimero
de telifono es el 43-2655.
Igualmente important es la can-
celaci6n de las citas, cuando el pa-
ciente no pueda acudir a ella. En
tal caso, la persona interesada de-
bera Ilamar al citado nfmero de
tel6fono para comunicar su imposi-
bilidad de cumplir con la cita.
Se ha dado un interns especial
al sistema de citas en la creencia
de que ello ayudari al personal
medico y auxiliar, a ofrecer un
mAs eficiente y rApido servicio en
el Hospital de Coco Solo.

Este domingo 24 do marzo se
observa el 509 Aniversario de la
Consagraci6n de la Catedral de San
Lucas, en Anc6n. La capilla de San
Lucas fue construida en su actual
ubicacion en 1908, con el apoyo
del Coronel William C. Gorgas,
miembro active de la primera igle-
sia.
Durante la 6poca de la construc-
ci6n v de la I Guerra Mundial, el
edificio sirvi6 las necesidades del
hospital y de la comunidad. Con-
cluida la guerra se reconoci6 la
Zona del Canal como un Distrito
Misional de PanamA y la Zona del
Canal, y so nombr6 como primer
Obispo Episcopal al Reverendo
James Craik Morris.
En el mismo lugar, en 1922, se co-
loc6 la primera piedra de la actual
Catedral de San Lucas. Este fue el
centro de las actividades eclesiAsti-
cas en la Zona del Canal y Areas
pr6ximas de PanamA, bajo la aten-
ci6n del Obispo Morris y su sucesor
el Obispo Beal.
Despues de la II Guerra Mundial
el Obispo Gooden, consagrado en
-1945, observ6 que se afiadia a su
jurisdicci6n a Costa Rica y Nicara-
gua, y mAs tarde a Colombia. La
Catedral de San Lucas fue sede
para las congregaciones de cinco
naciones. Al progresar la labor mi-
sionera en esos paises, se constitu-
veron en Di6cesis separadas, con
sus propios obispos.
En 1972 el Obispo Gooden fue
reemplazado por el Reverendo Le-
muel B. Shirley, que habia servido
por 30 aiios como pastor en Pana-


inm. I oy dia la congregaci6n es nul-
tinacional. Las banderas de los Es-
tados Unidos y PanamA permanecen
al lado del estandarte de la Iglesia
Episcopal. Alli tambi6n se encuen-
tra la bandera de Inglaterra, sim-
bolo del origen de la misi6n y de
los muchos religiosos de distintas
ramas de la Iglesia Anglicana que
encuentran en 6sta su hogar espi-
ritual.
El Gobernador David S. Parker
dara la bienvenida a nombre de la
conmunidad. El Obispo Lemuel B.
Shirley serA el predicador, y el
DeAn Edwin C. Webster oficiara los
servicios. La lectura de las Sagradas
Escrituras estari a cargo de Wil-
liam Y. Boyd, y del General William
B. Rosson. A continuaci6n se ofre-
cera una recepci6n en el Centro
Obispo Gooden (la rotonda situada
detras de la Catedral).
El p6blico estA gentilmente invi-
tado a participar en el Servicio de
las Bodas de Oro, que se iniciarA a
