Vol. XII, No. 40

Ship Anchor, Chain

Recovered From Bay

The Dredging Division's crane
boat Atlas went on a sea plowing
expedition early this month.
The special project, one of the
biggest tackled by the Atlas and
the Dredging Division recently, in-
volved locating and salvaging more
than 1,100 feet of 57 tons of steel
anchor chain which was attached
to an 11-ton anchor.
The anchor and chain had been
accidentally lost in Panama Bay
earlier this month from the Hapag
Lloyd container ship Hamburg
Express as the vessel was moving
out to sea following the southbound
transit of the Canal. The steel chain
and anchor settled down 4 feet into
the muck of the bay. Finding it
meant that the Atlas would have
to tow a grappling hook in a zigzag
course over the approximate route
taken by the container ship.
With two divers from Tridant
Marine of New York aboard, the
Atlas was prepared for the search
March 12 and 13. The actual sea
plowing operation began March 14
and for the next 2 days, the
grappling hook located almost
everything except anchor chains. At
4 p.m., March 16, they reported
the anchor chain had been spotted.
Recovery of the chain and anchor
was completed with the crane on
the Atlas picking up the chain in
13 lengths of 90 feet each. The
anchor came up last.
The equipment was brought into
port aboard the Atlas and is to be
shipped out on the next Hapag
Lloyd ship for delivery to the
Hamburg Express.
The urgent need to recover the
anchor and chain was not due to
the cost of the equipment but the
difficulty in replacing it. The ship-
ping company said it would take
6 months to manufacture a new
chain and anchor which would fit
the specifications set by the insur-
ance company for this type of ship.
The Dredging Division operation
was carried out under the supervi-
sion of Capt. Clarence Teller,
former Dredging Division employee
now in training as a Panama Canal
John Witt, of the Dredging Divi-
sion, was chief of the crane opera-

21st Cayuco Race

Is Scheduled for

Next Weekend
The 21st Ocean-to-Ocean Cayuco
Race will be held April 5, 6 and 7,
according to the sponsoring Canal
Zone Council Boy Scouts of Amer-
Spectators are expected from
both sides of the Isthmus for this
annual competition, which is con-
sidered to be one of the most color-
ful Scouting events of the year.
Cayuco crews have been prac-
ticing and preparing their boats
weeks in advance for the grueling
race. The contestants will be made
up of Explorers aged 14 to 18
years who are members of posts
and ships in the Canal Zone Coun-
cil. Also, for the second time
in the history of the race, there will
be female crews competing and un-
official predictions say they may
place high in the finish.
This year's race will begin at 4
p.m., Friday, April 5, at the Cris-
tobal Yacht Club and will end at
Rodman on April 7.
A significant rule change was
noted in this year's race route. Ca-
yuco crews are instructed to go left
of Buoy 71, keeping the buoy and
island on their right, announced
Chief Umpire Pat Beall. Beall also
revealed that epoxy paint will be
allowed on the cayuco hulls for the
first-time, but the rule against fiber-
glass remains.
Coordinator for this year's race
is Capt. John D. Mallard, Com-
manding Officer, U.S. Naval Sup-
port Activity, C.Z.

Gov. Proclaims

Today Vietnam

Veterans Day

Gov. David S. Parker has pro-
claimed March 29 as Vietnam Vet-
erans Day in the Canal Zone. The
text of his proclamation follows:
"WHEREAS the President of the
United States has called on all U.S.
citizens to join for one day in recog-
nizing the debt owed to the men
and women who served their coun-
try faithfully and courageously
during the Vietnam conflict; and
"WHEREAS in the future, all
veterans will be honored on the
traditional Veterans Day in the
fall; and
"WHEREAS scores of young
people from the Canal Zone an-
swered their nation's call during its
longest conflict in history, when
more than two and one-half million
served in Vietnam; and
"WHEREAS the personal sacri-
fices made by these people, many of
whom will never return home, must
not be forgotten;
S. PARKER, Governor of the Canal
Zone, do hereby proclaim Friday,
March 29, 1974, as Vietnam Vet-
erans Day and call upon the entire
Canal Zone community to give
deserved recognition to the men and
women who served their country in
support of the noblest of ideals.

Gov. David S. Parker chats with Solomon Papperman, Associate Director
for Policy in the Civil Service Commission's Bureau of Retirement, Insur-
ance and Occupational Health. Papperman met with both U.S. and Latin
American Civic Councils during his recent visit to the Isthmus.

CZ. Health Insurance Plan

Is One of Best Anywhere

U.S. Government employees in
the Canal Zone have one of the best
collective health insurance plans in
existence, according to Solomon
Papperman, Associate Director for
Policy in the Civil Service Com-
mission's Bureau of Retirement, In-
surance and Occupational Health.
Papperman spoke on health in-
surance and hospital costs at recent
executive sessions of the U.S.
and Latin American Civic Councils
while visiting the Canal Zone from
Washington, D.C.
Pointing out that 18,000 Federal
employees of the Canal Zone are
protected by the group insurance
plan, Papperman added that there
are approximately 40 plans, several
of which are available to employees
on the Isthmus. He stated that in-
creases in insurance rates were the

result of spiraling inflation, rapidly
rising health care and hospital costs
and abuses in the use of medical
Papperman told council members
that the U.S. Congress approved a
law last year increasing the par-
ticipation of the Government in the
payment of premiums so that the
Government's share is now 50 per-
cent and will increase to 60 percent
next year. This has slowed down
the increase in the employees' share
of the premiums.
He explained that the practice of
paying a deposit prior to entering
the hospital, sometimes as much as
1 week's cost, is common practice
in the United States. This charge is
met by insurance.
One important aspect of the
group health insurance he took note
of is the right of retired employees
to continue enjoying the benefits of
the health insurance plan for life,
so long as they remain members.
Retirees cannot rejoin the plan, he
added, if they drop it after retiring.
As to health care in the Canal
Zone, Papperman commended Gor-
gas Hospital and said he considers
it one of the best Government health
centers he has seen in his many
years of work in this field.

Ways To Reduce

Gas Consumption

In an effort to reduce fuel con-
sumption in official motor vehicles
by 20 percent due to the current
energy crisis, operators of all motor
vehicles are requested to observe
the following driving techniques
suggested by Maurice L. McCul-
lough, Superintendent of the Motor
Transportation Division:
a. Travel at reduced speeds
whenever possible. Fuel consump-
tion increases as speed increases.
b. Avoid sudden bursts of speed
and pumping the accelerator pedal
while the vehicle is not in motion.
c. Avoid sudden stops; plan
d. Do not idle engine except in
e. Use routes with a minimum
number of traffic signals and stop
f. Eliminate unnecessary weight;
remove excess tires, chains, tools,
etc. from the trunk and storage
g. Minimize air resistance by
removing any unnecessary acces-
h. Refuel vehicle in the morning.
i. Avoid overfilling the fuel tank
to allow for fuel expansion.
j. Use the air-conditioner spar-
k. Maintain tire pressures at tire
manufacturer's recommended levels
to reduce rolling resistance.

B. Rosson, Commander-in-Chief,
U.S. Southern Command, and Hon-
orary President of the Canal Zone

in life but also an obligation of the
new Eagles to give back to the
Scouting program, through leader-
ship and assistance to younger
Scouts, the knowledge that had
been given them by the program.

Eagles and their parents on their
newly won achievement. Eagle rank
was awarded to Dave Dailer of
Troop 18, Coco Solo; George Fryer
of Troop 8, Fort Gulick; brothers

trict. William Arthur, Vice Pres-
ident of the International Scouts of

Master Key to the Locks and Distinguished Service Award are presented

Charles I. McGinnis. Center is Mrs. O'Neal, who also received a Master
Key to the Locks. The presentation was made during a retirement party.

Chief Traffic Controller

Closes Out Long PC Career

Rufus C. O'Neal, who has been
the Panama Canal's Chief Marine
Traffic Controller since 1965, re-
tired from service this month after
38 years of U.S. Government serv-
ice. Thirty-one years of his life has
been with the Panama Canal orga-
nization, most of it with the Marine
Traffic Control office.
A native of Manchester, Ca.,
O'Neal came to the Isthmus with
the U.S. Army and joined the Pan-
ama Canal in 1939 as a clerk. He
was employed as a Marine Dis-
patcher in 1943 and with the ex-
ception of 3 years with the U.S.
Army in World War II, has been
with the Marine Bureau ever since.
He started in the lowest profes-
sional grade of the Marine Traffic
Control section and progressed to
the highest. During that time he
became a key figure in the con-
tinuing studies that were made to
increase Canal capacity and was
one of those who worked with con-
sultants in preparing for implemen-
tation of the modernized Marine
Traffic Control System which will
go into operation in 1975.
Since 1965, when O'Neal took
over the job as Chief Marine Traffic
Controller, Panama Canal transits
have increase from 12,203 ocean-
going ships a year to 14,238. More
important, he has seen the number
of large vessels increase from 849
vessels of 80-foot beam or more
in 1965 to 3,205 in 1973. During
the same period cargo carried
through the Canal increased from
78,922,931 to 127,561,733 long
Credit for his leadership and ex-
pertise in the exacting field of
moving an increasing number of
vessels through the Canal, was given
by Lt. Gov. Charles I. McGinnis
who presented O'Neal with the
Panama Canal Distinguished Serv-
ice Award at a retirement party.
In a commendation, Cov. David
S. Parker said O'Neal had been re-
sponsible for the "motivation, train-
ing, dedication, expertise and loy-
alty of the small group of men in
the Marine Traffic Control unit and
by his inexhaustible energy and on-
tiring example had been a Rock of

series of Ten Iistoric Organ Re-
citals. lie will play selections by
Ross Lee Finney and Jean Langlais

in the Balboa Union Church Sanc-
tuary. The public is invited.

Gibraltar not only in maintaining
but enhancing the image of the Pan-
ama Canal Company and the United
States Government in the eyes of
international shipping and world
O'Neal was officially recognized
with Outstanding Performance Rat-
ings in 1963, 1968, 1972 and 1973.
For his distinguished performance,
Governor Parker also awarded him
with a Quality Step Increase in
March 1972.
During his many years of res-
idence on the Isthmus, O'Neal has
been active in civic, community and
fraternal affairs. He is a former pres-
ident of the Atlantic Chapter of the
Reserve Officers Association, former
chairman of the Church Council of
the Margarita Union Church, former
president of the Union Churches of
the Canal Zone, a founder and first
president of the American Federa-
tion of Government Employees,
Local 1559 and a member of the
American Legion.
Mr. and Mrs. O'Neal are leaving
the Isthmus tomorrow to make their
home in Titusville, Fla. Their three
daughters are living in the United

A bright red Dempster Dump-
ster stationed in the parking lot at
The Cap in Balboa has caused some
to scratch their head in wonder.
The Balboa High School Ecology
Club is responsible for providing
the container at that location to
collect paper and paper products
that can be recycled. This is part of
the Ecology Club's continuing
efforts to aid the community with
its conservation programs.
The container may be used by
the general public for depositing
newspapers, magazines, cardboard
boxes and other dry paper products
only. These materials will then be
offered to a local firm for commer-
cial recycling if the initial response
from the public is favorable.
The Ecology Club will appreciate
all donations of recyclable paper
products in support of this experi-
mental environmental control proj-
ect. Residents who clean up the
storeroom and wonder what to do
with those old Christmas boxes that
were never used and those maga-
zines and newspapers should see
"Red" at The Gap parking lot.

Foster Home Program

Needs More Volunteers

The success of the Foster Home
Program in the Canal Zone was
recognized recently when the pro-
gram's committee was presented a
merit certificate and silver medal-
lion at the Canal organization's
annual Public Service Awards Cere-
mony in the Rotunda of the Admin-
istration Building in Balboa Heights.
But despite the success the pro-
gram has achieved so far, the Foster
Home Committee still needs more
homes to accommodate youngsters
on both sides of the Isthmus.
The Foster Home Program has
been serving the entire Canal Zone
community since 1970 and the
Foster Home Committee has no-
thing but praise for both the foster
parents and the professional coun-
selors who have volunteered their
homes and services to needy chil-
dren. Thanks to them, this award
was made possible.
A roster of temporary homes and
foster parents is maintained con-
tinuously by the committee. These
homes are volunteered from the
community and potential parents
are interviewed to determine suit-
The aim of the program is to pro-

vide temporary shelter to young
adults and children who need as-
sistance in times of emergency, fam-
ily strife or with problems of ad-
justment. Administrative assistance,
professional guidance and counsel-
ing is offered in a supervisory
Placement of children is done on
a voluntary basis with the consent
of the natural parent, who main-
tains financial responsibility for the
personal and medical needs of the
In the past, the duration of tem-
porary care has varied from a few
days to several months. About 45
young people have received the
professional attention of the Foster
Home Committee, which is chaired
by Mrs. Ray Dymond.
The office of the Foster Iome
Program is located in the Pedro
Miguel School building, with a part-
time secretary available from 8 to
11 a.m. daily. The help and par-
ticipation of the community can
continue to make the program a
success. Anyone having the space
and the interest is asked to call
52-7792 for additional information.

Mrs. Eunice Olive Richard, a
knowledgeable bundle of energy
who served the Information Office
as a writer-editorial assistant since
1952, will put away her pad and
pencil today and retire after more
than 25 years with the Canal

formation Office, Mrs. Richard has
chronicled a broad range of Canal

accidents, record breaking transits,
Civic Councils, crimes, obituaries,
Scouts, schools, distinguished visi-
tors and sports-these and many
more have been part of her beat.

Enthusiasm, a keen news sense
and general alertness are three vital
qualities that have made her serv-
ices invaluable to the Information
Office and to members of the news
media who dealt with her.
Fellow workers paid tribute to

party held in the Union Club. In-
formation Officer Frank A. Baldwin
thanked her for her many years of
excellent service and presented her
with an Outstanding Service Award.

young child with her parents who
were associated with the Panama
American. Her father, Chester O.
Olive, was business manager and

enterprise until it was sold in the
late 1930's.
Mrs. Richard attended Canal
Zone schools and later was grad-
uated from Syracuse University with
a bachelor of arts degree in liberal
arts. Returning to the Isthmus, she

and then made their home at Las
Cumbres, Panama, where Mrs.
Richard lived until the death of her
husband. She has been a resident of
the Canal Zone since 1962.
Prior to her employment with the

Elogia Solomon Papperman El Supermercado

Seguro Colectivo del Canal De Balboa Tendr
l tr^, ,I fl

Como uno de los mejores planes
de seguro colectivo que tienen los
empleados del Gobierno de los Es-
tados Unidos, calific6 Solomon Pap-
perman, de la Comisi6n de Servicio
Civil de los EE. UU., el seguro de
salubridad de los empleados del
Canal de Panama.
Hablando en la primera Sesi6n
Ejecutiva este aio del Consejo Ci-
vico Latinoamericano, Papperman,
quien es Director Asociado sobre
Normas y Direcci6n de Jubilaci6n,
Seguro y Salud Ocupacional, dijo
que unos 18.000 empleados Fede-
rales en la empresa del Canal estAn
protegidos por el plan de seguro
colectivo de salubridad. Dijo que
hay aproximadamente 40 planes de
seguro, algunos de ellos disponibles
para los empleados en el Istmo.
Abordando uno de los aspects
mis importantes, el relative a las
primas, Papperman explic6 clara-
mente que ha sido estrictamente ne-
cesario elevarlas. Subray6 que esta
media ha sido necesaria, a causa
de dos factors: la sostenida spiral
inflacionaria que hay en todo el
r1n11d:) y al excesivo uso de los ser-
vicios incluidos dentro del plan.
El Congress de los Estados Uni-
dos aprob6 el afio pasado una ley
aumentando la participaci6n del
Gobierno en el pago de las primas.
Esa media contribuy6 a hacer
menos oneroso al asegurado, el in-
cremento aprobado en las primas
por la Comisi6n de Servicio Civil.
Dijo que la participaci6n del Go-
bierno es de 50 por ciento ahora, y
que aumnntar' al 60 por ciento el
proximo anfo.
Refiri'ndose a los efectos de la
inflaci6n mundial, Papperman dijo

Zona del Canal-Area del Pacifico
(Promedio do Galones de Agua al Dia)
Semana pasada 11.193.400
Semana anterior 11.369.400
Semana pasada
hace 1 afio 12.545.700

que las consultas mddicas, igual que
los servicios m6dicos y hospitalarios
van en aumento.
Papperman dijo que en los Es-
tados Unidos, igual que en el Istmo,
el beneficiario paga un dep6sito y,
en algunos cases, la semana ade-
lantada. Ambos gastos le son luego
devueltos por el Seguro.
Un aspect important sefialado
por Papperman, quien permaneci6
en el Istmo por various dias, es el
derecho que tienen los jubilados de
continuar disfrutando de los bene-
ficios de los planes de seguro, siem-
pre y cuando se mantengan afiliados
a ellos. No pueden, en cambio, in-
corporarse nuevamente a un plan
de seguro, los jubilados que hayan
dispuesto retirarse de o1.
Para los prop6sitos de recibir
atenci6n m6dica, Papperman reco-
mend6 al Hospital Gorgas y dijo
quo lo consider uno de los mejores
centros de salubridad que e1 ha
visto en los muchos arios que tiene
de experiencia en este campo.
A la sesidn asisticron los nuc-
vos miembros: Alfonso Charles y
Robert Urquhart, de Rainbow City;
Alfonso Alexis, de Paraiso, y Noel
Hawkins y Christopher Cox, de

dio una cordial bienvenida.

si6n de Dragado, sali6 a principios
de este mes a rastrear el mar.
Este proyecto especial, una de las
tareas mas grandes emprendidas por
la Division de Dragado y el Atlas
en los iiltimos meses, consisti6 en
localizar y rescatar del fondo del
mar mAs de 1.100 pies de cadena
de ancla de acero, con un peso de
57 toneladas, que estaba unida a
un ancla tambi6n de acero, de 11
toneladas de peso.

hia de PanamA, a principios de este
mes, por el furgonero Hamburg

asentaron en 4 pies de la lama del
fondo de la bahia. Para encontrarla,

Por agradable coincidencia, la Srta.
Celia Yvonne Duncan trabaja hoy
como avudante estudiantil, en la
misma dependencia del Canal en
donde hace 20 aiios labor su ma-
dre, la Sra. Germaine de Duncan.
Para B. J. Elich, Gerente General
dcl Ramo de Administraci6n de
Mercancias de la Divisi6n de Abas-
tos, quien fue jefe de la Sra. Ger-
maine de Duncan, es como si esta
fuera nuevamente su subalterna,
pues Celia es la imagen de su madre
cuando estaba joven. Graduada de
bachiller en letras en el Instituto
Justo Arosemena de Panami el aiio
pasado, Celly-como la llaman cari-
fiosamente sus familiares y amista-
des intimas-planea lograr en el fu-
turo un doctorado en francs. Pro-
yecta ingresar el pr6ximo aiDo lectivo
a la Universidad de Panama o a la
Zona del Canal, a estudiar el fran-
c6s, para obtener su titulo de profe-
sora. Cumplida esta etapa, piensa
lograr su doctorado en Paris, Fran-
cia. Explica Celia que la lectura de
revistas en francs le hicieron nacer
la vocaci6n por ese idioma, y el in-
teres por conocer la Ciudad Luz.
Celia es una muchacha estudiosa, y
mu, aficionada a todo lo que con-
tribuya a enriquecer su bagage cul-
tural, pero no por eso abandon las
actividades festival. Fue durante
los pasados Carnavales de la Salsa,
candidate a Reina de la "Fanaticada
de los Fabulosos Festivals", y .aun-
que no gan6, pues ocup6 el segundo
lugar, se divirti6 como la que mAs.
De esa experiencia guard gratos
recuerdos de las manifestaciones de
simpatias de que fue objeto y de las
amistades que hizo. Aficionada a
conocer a la gente, Celia tuvo otra
oportunidad similar cuando fue
Debutante de la Iglesia San Cris-
t6bal de Parque Lefevre, barrio
de la ciudad de PanamA en donde
reside con sus padres. Entre los pa-
satiempos predilectos, Celia men-
ciona los deportes-jug6 baloncesto,
voleybol y compiti6 en events de
pista y campo-la misica ("soul" y
clisica), y la lectura. Recuerda con
satisfacci6n la ocasi6n en que gan6

recogidas en la propia fuente . . ."
Tambien opina el editor de los

de hacer esos studios mas funda-
mentados y verdaderos".
