Day Care Challenge Met

By CZ. Community Action _

Speedy response by the entire
Canal Zone community has resulted
in the successful establishment of
day care centers on both sides of
the Isthmus to meet increased needs
resulting from the local application
of the U.S. minimum wage to
domestic employees.
Officials of the Executive Planning
Staff, Health Bureau, Division of
Schools, Fire Division, Civic Coun-
cils and churches provided joint
support needed to define what the
requirements were and how they

"Police Week"

To Be Observed

Here May 12-18
"Police Week" will be observed
in the Canal Zone during the week
of May 12 to 18, with May 15 de-
signated as "Peace Officers' Mem-
orial Day."
"Peace Officers' Memorial Day"
and "Police Week" came about as
a result of a Presidential Proclama-
tion from President John F. Ken-
nedy in 1963, who designated
May 15 of each year as "Peace
Officers' Memorial Day" and the
calendar week during which May 15
occurs as "Police Week."
Open House in both the Balboa
and Cristobal District Police sta-
tions will be on May 15, from 8
a.m. to 4 p.m. and the public is
invited to inspect police facilities
and view the displays on hand.
An officer from the Canal Zone
Police will be interviewed on the
SCN "iQue Pasa?" Show to be
aired on Wednesday evening,
May 15, at 9 p.m.
This year the Canal Zone Police
have attempted to reach the adult
public by taking the extra effort to
have an article, which was written
by a Criminology Professor from
Florida State University, repro-
duced in pamphlet form. The article
was originally published in the FBI
Law Enforcement Bulletin and has
been reproduced with their per-
mission. The pamphlet will be
available free to the public at the
Balboa and Cristobal Police stations
and various checkout counters,
library counters, etc., throughout
the Canal Zone.
Arrangements for group tours of
the Balboa and Cristobal Police
stations may be made by contact-
ing Sgt. James A. Carlin at Balboa
52-7975 or Sgt. Willard J. French
at Cristobal 43-2111.
Personnel of the Canal Zone
Police will be visiting elementary
schools throughout the Canal Zone
during "Police Week" and will have
speaking teams who will also give
out special Police Week coloring
books and pencils to children in
the lower grades.

Personnel Section Moves
Effective today, the Adverse and
Disciplinary Actions Section of the
Personnel Bureau, will be located
on the third floor of the District
Court Building in Ancon. The tele-
phone numbers remain 52-3224,
52-3449 and 52-7795. This section
was formerly located at Building
366, Ancon.

could be met. Canal Zone residents
assisted by providing essential in-
formation such as how many fam-
ilies would need child care facilities
to permit parents to continue work-
ing after May 1, when the new wage
law took effect. Several residents
decided to set up centers them-
A continuing program is being
carried out to respond to changing
needs and to see that the day care
centers will continue to operate on
a 12-month basis. The program is
being coordinated by Mrs. Theresa
F. Moore, Chairman of the Wom-
en's Advisory Council, who is being
assisted by Mrs. Norma Miller. Mrs.
Moore may be reached by calling
84-3959 or 52-6596 and Mrs. Miller,
at 52-5268.
A workshop will be held from 9
a.m. to 12 noon May 18 at the
Panama Canal Training Center on
Corozo Street for all employees of
child day care centers and nursery
schools. Conducting the workshop
will be Mrs. Shirley Makibbin, Su-
pervisor of Instruction, U.S. Ele-
mentary Schools, who is an expert
in early childhood development.
Persons who wish to establish
centers or nurseries may obtain ap-
plications from the Office of the
Executive Secretary, rooms 205-207
Administration Building, Balboa
Heights. Guidelines, special require-
ments and other information also
are available at this office.

Silver Jubilee Is Plan

For Father John Ken

The Reverend John Kennedy,
C.M., Superior Pastor of St. Mary's
Mission, said in a recent sermon
that of the 12 Apostles, Peter was
chosen to be the head of the church
because he was "an ordinary human
being" and "just a regular guy."
Father Kennedy might have been
speaking of himself and why he was
chosen to be a Catholic priest.
The popular priest was born in
Albany, N.Y., one of four children
in what he describes as an ordinary
family, not a "bunch of Holy Joes."
One brother, Michael, is Direc-
tor of a Vincentian Minor Seminary
in Pennsylvania, and the other,
Thomas, is a Christian Brother in
Ethiopia. Of his only sister, Mar-
garet, he said, "She was the only
one of us who had the courage to
get married."
Father Kennedy attended public
schools and the Christian Brothers
Academy (high school) in Albany,
and then worked for 3 years for
the New York State Department of
Labor as a clerk in the Unemploy-
ment Insurance Division.
In September 1940, he entered
the Vincentian Seminary in Phila-
delphia, and was ordained in
May 1949.
The same summer he arrived in
Panama and, except for 6 months
in Costa Rica learning Spanish and
2 years of sick leave in the United
States, his 25 years as a priest have
been devoted to serving the people
of the Canal Zone, Panama City
and the interior of the Republic.
His assignments have been to the
missions in Concepci6n, Bocas del
Toro, and Puerto Armuelles where
he worked with and taught the
natives of the mountain regions and
along the coastlines, the Indians
and the workers on the banana
In 1961, the Archbishop of Pan-
ama called on him to organize and

Care, Approval
When you decide to add a patio
or an extra room to your quarters,
you probably never give a thought
to the fact that the free architec-
tural or engineering plan for. the
work is one of the biggest bargains
offered to occupants of Panama
Canal quarters.
But as with most bargains, there
. is a catch.
The free service is provided on
a time-available basis by the pro-
fessional architects and engineers
who draw the plans.
Last year, the average plan took
46 working days from the date of
request to completion.

gineering Division, has some advice

Chief of Admeasurement

Retires After 34 Years

Measuremient, tolls, ballast, cargo,
transits-were a part of the ship talk
vocabulary that Eugene E. Ilam-
lin, Jr., learned as a very young
child when his father was adthneas-
urer at Balboa.
They later becanc the essence
of his Canal career and the many
years of service in the Panama
Canal admeasurenment office, seeing
to it that all ships transiting were
carefully measured and tolls prop-
erly charged. Director of Admeas-
urement since 1962, Hlamlin has re-
tired with more than 34 years of
Government service to his credit,
most of it with Admnasurement.
Member of a well-known Canal
Zone family, IIamlin's grand-father
was a construction-day worker and
later his father and his mother were
Canal employees. There has been a
member of his father's or his
mother's family working for the
Canal organization for the past 70
years. He is the last to go.
Born in Ancon, Hamlin attended
Canal Zone schools and was grad-
uated from Balboa High School. He
has the distinction of being the very
first Canal Zone youth to receive
an appointment from West Point
right after graduating from high
school. However, he did not go to
West Point. After 1 year at Canal
Zone College, he went to Carnegie
Institute of Technology where he
received a bachelor of science
degree in mechanical engineering.
Hlamnlin is fluent in Spanish and
gives credit to Balboa High School
for this training.
His first job with the Canal was
as a student engineer in the Special
Engineering Division from 1939 to
1944. From 1944 to 1919, he was
employed as a mechanical engineer
in the Public Works Department,
U.S. Naval Station, Balboa. In late
1949, he returned to the Canal and

Eugene E. Hamlin, Jr.

was employed in admeasurement.
He was promoted to Chief Ad-
measurer in 1960 and 2 years later
was appointed Director of Admeas-
urement. In this capacity, has been
the Canal's tonnage expert and
overseen the duties of approxima-
tely 30 admeasurers.
Hamlin attended various inter-
national tonnage meetings on behalf
of the Canal organization which led
to the development of international
convention for tonnage measure-
ment of vessels. Admeasurement
also has played an important role
in the development of the Ship
Data Bank.
Hamlin is a member of Pi Tau
Sigma, the Mechanical Engineering
Ionor Fraternity, and Delta Up-
silon the social fraternity. He has
been on the board of management
of the Cristobal YMCA and served
for many years on the Selective
Service Board and was chairman of
Local Board No. 2. He has been
an active member of the Gold Coast
Orchid society , the Abou Saad
Shrine and other Masonic orders,
and an officer of the Brazos Brooks
Country Club. An avid collectors of
coins and stamps, Hamlin helped
to reorganize the Cristobal Coin
Club in 1962.
Hamlin's wife, Kathryne, teaches
first grade at Fort Gulick Elemen-
tary School. The Hamlins plan to
make their retirement home in
Carthage, N.C.

Mrs. Charles I. McGinnis, wife of the Acting Canal Zone
Governor, shows the fourth-grade class of Diablo Ele-

Church Mission School, Rio Tikan Tiki." Mrs. McGinnis
gave a talk to the class and showed slides of the trip
she made by cayuco up the Bayano River and Diablo
River to visit Cuna and Choco Indian villages. Mrs.

Flags fly from this very special boxcar bolster in celebration of the com-
pletion of a 7-year project that saved the Panama Canal organization
money that would have been spent ordering custom-made bolsters from
the United States. In 1966, the Canal organization purchased second-hand
boxcars and each of the bolsters necessary to support and distribute the
freight-car body had to be widened to fit the width between the rails of
the Panama Railroad. Employees of the Railroad Division Car Repair Shop,
in Balboa, widened 268 bolsters. Because each car requires two bolsters, the
railroad has acquired 134 steel boxcars since the beginning of the project.

Child Care Deductible

Under Income Tax Law

(The following article appeared
in the December 7, 1973, issue of
the SPILLWAY. In view of the rising
costs of child care due to the local
application of the minimum wage
law, the Women's Advsiory Council
has requested that it be reprinted
for the convenience of working
mothers residing in the Canal Zone.)
Almost every expense, except the
cost of a chauffeur, qualifies as a
child care deduction for tax pur-
pose under the Revenue Act of
1971. This act, which deals with
the expenses incurred in caring for
dependent children, relatives, or
spouses, makes important changes
in the old rules and makes it pos-
sible for both married and single
people to save large sums on their
income tax.
With income tax filing time ap-
proaching, taxpayers should check
with their tax experts to make sure
they are well informed on all of
the changes resulting from the new
The new Act, which went into

-7'-. *

A. W. Romaneski, Mrs. Barth Bohn, and Miss Margo
M. Callaghan accompanied her on the trip which was
organized by Dr. and Mrs. Lyle Armstrong who own
the Darien Compound at Chepo. Mrs. Armstrong was
the guide for the trip. Mrs. Francis Garavanta, who

effect in 1972, allows a dependent
care deduction of up to $4,800 per
year for household expenses neces-
sary for a person to be able to
accept employment.
In the case of dependent chil-
dren, this can include away-from-
home expenses such as the cost of
a nursery for preschoolers, as well
as the salary of a maid or baby-
sitter. An amount not to exceed
$200 a month is allowed for one
child, $300 for two children, and
$400 for three or more. The deduc-
tion for household expenses plus
nursery school or other away-from-
home child care cannot exceed a
total of $400 a month. An employee
is eligible to deduct this full amount
if total adjusted gross income is not
more than $18,000 per year. The
deduction is phased out by $1 for
every $2 that adjusted gross in-
come exceeds $18,000. Once ad-
justed gross income hits $27,600,
there's no deduction.
This deduction applies also to
expenses incurred for the care at
home of spouse or other depend-
ents, who are incapable of caring
for themselves.
Married people must file a joint
return and both, unless disabled,
must work to qualify for the deduc-
Formerly, only married couples
were subject to the limitation on
income but the new act specifies
that all taxpayers, including widows,
widowers, and the divorced are
limited to $18,000 if they are to
receive the entire deduction. In the
case of married people, their com-
bined adjusted gross incomes must
not exceed $18,000.
This deduction is classified as
"personal" and cannot be claimed
if the taxpayer takes the standard
deduction. The Revenue Service
provides Special Form 2441 to use
in figuring the deduction or one
can file a separate statement.
Since it is up to the individual to
prove he is entitled to the deduc-
tion, an employee must keep ade-
quate records. This is the only way
to make sure of being able to take
advantage of this saving in taxes.
Employees having children under
15 years old or paying someone to
care for disabled spouses or rela-
tives in their homes can realize sub-
stantial benefits from looking into
all the rules concerning declaring
these deductions on their 1973
income tax return.

Civil Service Praises

Canal's 1974 EEO Plan

The U.S. Civil Service Commis-
sion has commended the Canal or-
ganization for designing a viable
Equal Employment Opportunity
Plan for CY 1974.
In a letter to J. Patrick Conley,
Executive Secretary of the Canal
Zone and Director of Equal Em-
ployment Opportunity, Alfred P.
Squerrini, Acting Director of the
Commission's Office of Federal
Equal Employment Opportunity
commented, "We recognize that...
the plan package which (was) sub-
mitted to us in November 1973
makes for a considerably improved
plan over last year's plan and we
commend you on your efforts to
design a viable 1974 plan."
Gov. David S. Parker has given
major impetus to fulfilling the
Canal organization's requirements
over the past year under the Equal
Employment Opportunity Act of
1972. To this end he has appointed:
Bruce A. Quinn to serve as Equal
Opportunity Officer of the Canal
organization; Mrs. Theresa F.
Moore to serve as Coordinator of
the Federal Women's Program, a
Women's Advisory Council; and
Jos6 Corc6 as the Coordinator of
the Spanish Speaking Program.
During the past few months
several major issues pertaining to
equality of treatment among Com-
pany-Government employees have
been resolved through modification
of Company-Government policies
and regulations. These include: the
extension of the authority to pur-
chase in Panama Canal retail stores
to family members of U.S.-citizen
employees of the Canal agencies
without regard to dependency; the
granting of medical services at em-
ployee rates for the families of all
permanent U.S. and non-U.S.-cit-
izen employees of the Company-
Government; a revision to the Sec-
retary of the Army's regulations,
which eliminated the "reason for
being in the area" test for eligibility
to receive the differential pay, re-
sulting in the extension of the
differential to approximately 100
more U.S.-citizen employees, pri-
marily female employees; and, the
granting of tuition free schooling
from kindergarten through grade 12
for the children of all full time,
U.S.-citizen employees (civilian) of

"I'm not Catholic but I have to say
he made us happy every time he
came into the office. He is the most
loving man."
A Panamanian lady recalls how
good he was to her mother, a mem-
ber of the Seventh Day Adventists,
when she was sick in the hospital.
And when someone was needed
to make up a foursome for a golf
game with the visiting celebrity,
Joe DiMaggio, Father Kennedy was
Tomorrow night, the parishioners
of St. Mary's Mission will join with
his sister, a niece, a nephew and a
cousin from the United States, and
Father Kennedy's friends from all
over the Isthmus of Panama to
honor him with a Silver Jubilee
Dinner celebrating the 25th anni-
versary of his ordination.
When Father Kennedy told his
father he was going to enter the
seminary, his father said: "John,
since the day you were born, I've
prayed every day of my life that
you would be a priest."
The people of the Isthmus of
Panama have been the beneficiaries
of those prayers.

the Canal organization and school-
ing at the Canal Zone College at
sponsored rates.
Quinn, who now administers the
EEO program in the Company-
Government since his appointment
as Equal Opportunity Officer this
year, has distributed the action plan
to managers of the Canal organiza-
tion. Highlights of the plan include:
-Increasing the number of min-
orities and female candidates for
senior level positions (NM-13-15)
and in supergrade and equivalent
positions. This action includes re-
viewing short and long range retire-
ment forecasts for counseling min-
orities and females for possible
upward movement into filling these
-Considering converting a repre-
sentative number of clerical, profes-
sional and technical positions to a
part-time base, especially in light
of the application of the minimum
wage to cover domestics .
-Revision Panama Canal Per-
sonnel Manual Chapter 713, "Equal
Employment Opportunity." The
revision of the chapter has been
drafted and submitted to the Gov-
ernor-President for approval.
-Initiating a course in human
relations for managers. (Preliminary
discussions have been held with
representatives of the Personnel
Bureau and Air Force personnel to
prepare an outline to implement
the course in the Company-Gov-
ernment in the near future. An
introductory course in EEO. "EEO
and the Supervisor," has been given
to approximately 400 supervisors as
of the end of April 1974. The course
will be offered on the Atlantic side
beginning this month.
-Providing that each bureau
nominate a qualified female can-
didate for each course offered under
the Management Development Pro-
gram offered by the Personnel
-Taking active measures to re-
cruit members of minority groups
when recruiting from the United
States. The Equal Opportunity Of-
fice will monitor future recruitment
efforts undertaken by bureaus and
independent staff units to ensure
compliance with this mandate.
Future EEO Action Plans will be
prepared with the assistance of bu-
reaus and independent staff units.
The plan normally is submitted to
the Commission by November. It
is planned to submit a proposed
draft of the Company-Government
1975 action plan to bureaus and
independent staff units by Septem-
ber 1974 for comment.

El Padre Kennedy Celebra

25 Anos de Sacerdocio

Miles de personas, especialmente
j6venes, de la ciudad de PanamA y
de muchas parties de la Repdblica,
reciben en sus casas con los brazos
abiertos a un sacerdote nacido en
Albany, Nueva York, pero que se
siente tan panamefio como los in-
dios de las montafias de Chiriqui y
de las margenes del Rio Cricamola,
con los que trabaj6 durante various
ainos. Es el Padre John Kennedy.
El aprecio que los panamefios
sienten por el Padre Kennedy se lo
ha ganado durante 17 afios en los
que ha ejercido su apostolado, tanto
en la ciudad de PanamA, como en
la Provincia de Chiriqui y en la de
Bocas del Toro. Cumpliendo con su
misi6n apost6lica, ha viajado por la
Republica en autom6vil, en avi6n,
lancha, tren, cayuco, a caballo y
ha llegado a muchos lugares a pie.
El Padre Kennedy hizo sus estu-
dios primaries en una escuela pi-
blica y los secundarios en la Aca-
demia de los Hermanos Cristianos
de su ciudad natal. Labor durante
3 aios en el Departamento de Tra-
bajo del Estado de Nueva York
como oficinista en la Divisi6n de
Seguro de Desempleo. Durante
todo ese tiempo ayud6 a misa.
Un dia, el pArroco le dijo: "John,
yo creo que debes ser saccrdote".
El joven Kennedy estuvo de acuer-
do y empez6 a estudiar latin para
prepararse para el seminario.
Decidi6 ingresar a la Orden de
los Vicentinos, porque la vida de
San Vicente de Pa6l le habia im-
presionado de tal manera desde
que la ley6 cuando niiio, que cuan-
do se confirm escogi6 ese como su
segundo nombre.
En mayo de 1949 fue ordenado
sacerdote y en octubre de ese afio,
Ilegaba a PanamA. "Dos meses des-
pues fui enviado a Costa Rica para
que aprendiera a hablar en cristia-
no", dice el Padre Kennedy.
En mayo de 1950 fue asignado
como ayudante del Padre Eduardo
G6mez, con quien inici6 la Parro-
quia de La Concepci6n, en Chiri-
qui. La parroquia era sumamente
amplia y abarcaba desde Alanje y
Boquer6n hasta las cumbres de la
sierra en Ia frontera con Costa Rica
y las alturas de Cerro Punta.
Dice el Padre Kennedy que des-

de un principio le impresion6 la
bondad de la gente y que hasta
en los pueblos mAs apartados de la
montafia habia una escuela. "Las
maestras de esas escuelitas eran mis
principles colaboradoras en cate-
quizar a los nifios y en prepararlos
para la primera comuni6n" dice re-
cordando esos 4 afios que pas6 en
el Distrito de Bugaba y agrega: "la
abnegaci6n de esas maestras es algo
que siempre admirar6". Se sinti6
sumamente impresionado al oficiar
su primera Semana Santa. Le toc6
hacerlo en Alanje, donde palp6 la
fe del panamefio ante la imagen del
milagroso Cristo que se venera en
ese lugar. Recuerda que Ilegaban
muchos que, debido a su pobreza,
traian s6lo un par de huevos o una
gallina, para pagar una manda.
Durante los 4 aios que perma-
neci6 en la Parroquia de La Con-
cepci6n, fue professor de religion en
el Primer Ciclo Secundario de esa
ciudad. Los j6venes estudiantes lo
recibieron con carifio. Dice el Padre
Kennedy: "Primero me toc6 bauti-
zar a muchos de los hijos de esos
j6venes y fltimamente me ha to-
cado casar a various de sus hijos.
Esos j6venes del Primer Ciclo de
La Concepci6n fueron personas de
las mis valiosas que he conocido".
En mayo de 1953, fue trasladado
a Bocas del Toro. AdemAs de ofi-
ciar en la cabecera de la Provincia
y ensefiar religion en el Colegio de
las Hermanas Capuchinas, tenia que
tender los caserios situados en la
costa de la Gran Laguna de Chiri-
qui y los de las mArgenes del Rio

Cuando usted se decide a afiadir-
le un patio o un cuarto extra a su
residencia, es probable que jams
se ponga a pensar en el hecho de
que los pianos de arquitectura y de
ingenieria para dicho trabajo es una
de las mayores gangas que se ofre-
cen a los que ocupan residencias del
Canal de PanamA.
Pero, como en todas las gangas,
siempre hay algo mAs.
Este servicio gratis se ofrece, de
acuerdo con el tiempo disponible
que tengan los arquitectos e inge-
nieros profesionales encargados de
hacer los pianos.
El afio pasado, el piano prome-
dio tom6 46 dias de trabajo, desde
el moment en que se hizo la soli-
citud hasta su terminaci6n.
R. J. Risberg, Jefe de la Divisi6n
de Ingenieria, tiene algunos conse-
jos para acortar este period de
S.. Escoja uno de los muchos y
populares disefios de modificacio-
nes que hay disponibles y adjuntelo
a la solicitud de construcci6n, cuan-
do la present en la Oficina de la
Vivienda, o
. . . Localice una residencia en
la que se haya terminado un traba-
jo semejante al que usted desea que
se haga e incluya dicha informaci6n
en su solicitud. Tambi6n es muy
buena idea solicitar al ocupante del
edificio en cuesti6n el cost del pro-
yecto, de manera que used est6
seguro de que desea gastar esa can-
tidad de dinero antes de presentar
su solicitud de construcci6n, o
S. . Contrate un arquitecto o in-
geniero que le haga los plans ori-
ginales y pres6ntelos junto con su

persona que usted contrate deberi
estar en la lista de los arquitectos e

En el procesamiento de cada so-

Rodney Carew NaciO en

Un Tren del Ferrocarril

El Ferrocarril de Panama, mun-
dialnente conocido por ser el pri-
mer ferrocarril transcontinental, re-
clama otro m6rito para su justificada

El Padre Kennedy Celebra . ..
(Viene de la pdgina 1)

Cricamola, hasta llegar a las tierras
de los indios guaymies al pie de la
cordillera. Se qued6 admirado de
ver cuantos chiricanos vivian en la
laguna. "Decia Misa en los muelles,
en la selva y en cualquier lugar en
que se presentara la ocasi6n", dice
el Padre Kenned)'. Pero lo que mis
le impresion6 fue ver que en
lugares donde no habia iglesia, ni
se habia visto un sacerdote en mu-
cho tiempo, much gente rezaba el
rosario y sentia gran devoci6n por
la Virgen Maria. "Son todas gentes
de bondad innata y siempre me re-
cibian con gran carifio. Les estoy
sumamente agradecido", afiade.
En 1956 se encarg6 de la Parro-
quia de Paraiso, y al afio fue en-
viado nuevamente a Bocas del
Toro, esta vez a trabajar en la
Parroquia de Almirante, que com-
prendia esa poblaci6n, Changuino-
la y todos los pueblos de la line y
las fincas bananeras, hasta Guabito,
en la frontera con Costa Rica. Ade-
mas de sus deberes apost6licos, era
professor en el Colegio de las Madres
Capuchinas de Almirante. Organize
la sociedad Damas de la Caridad
de San Vicente de Pal, quet rea-
liz6 una gran labor de asistencia
social entire los ancianos desampa-
rados que abundant en esa region.
"Jamfis vi cuAnto pueden hacer
unas pocas personas de buena vo-
luntad por el bienestar de muchos,
como lo pude comprobar en Almhni-
rante", dice cl Padre Kennedy. Otra
observaci6n que hace cs que las
plantaciones de banano son "areas
donde se ven muchos chiquillos y
muchos viejos, pero relativanmente
pocos hombres de cdad imcdiana.
Los ume hay, trabajan en las bana-
neras, pero la i;maioria cmigra
hacia Col6n o Panainmi, donde tic-
nen naias oportiunidades de Irabajo.
En t960, regrcsti a Bocas del
Toro, esta vez comio P'irroco y pro-
fesor del Colegio e las Hlermanas
Capucliinas. Nuicvainente, se rcla-
cionO con sus viejos amigos de la
Laguna de Chiriqui y de las miar-

genes del Cricamola. Pero su misi6n
fue corta, pues 1 afio despubs, el
Arzobispo de PanamA lo Ilamaba
para que se encargara del movi-
miento CAritas en Panama y del
"Catholic Relief Service" (Servicio
Cat6lico de Asistencia Social), que
es la rama de ultramar del trabajo
social de los Obispos de Estados
Unidos. Dice: "No s6 por que me
escogieron, pues yo no sabia nada
de asistencia social. Pero con la ayu-
da de las autoridades nacionales,
provinciales, municipales y de los
corregimientos de la Repfiblica de
PanamA, pude Ilevar a cabo mi
misi6n", dice y agrega: "nuevamen-
te, fueron los abnegados maestros
y maestras de los pueblos mis apar-
tados los que se ganaron mi mis
profundo agradecimiento".
En 1967 fue nombrado PArroco
de Puerto Armuelles y Director del
Colegio San Antonio de esa ciudad.
Su responsabilidad eran todas las
fincas bananeras y la costa desde
Puerto Armuelles y alrededores,
hasta Punta Burica. Tal misi6n la
efectuaba en lancha, en cavuco, a
caballo y a pie.

Rod Carew, el segundo saquista
panamefio de los Mellizos de Min-
nesotta, naci6 en un tren del Ferro-
carril de Panama cuando hacia tra-
vesia de Gatimn a Col6n el 19 de
octubre de 1945.
El medico que atendi6 al que
seria un gran pelotero fue Rodney
Cline, en cuyo honor se dio el
nombre a Carew.
La informaci6n est, contenida
en una entrevista que public el
peri6dico "The Minneapolis Star",
bajo el titulo "Carew as he was and
the man he is" (El Carew de antes
y el Carew de hoy).
En 1973, afio en que Carew fue
declarado el jugador mais valioso
de la Liga Americana, gan6 su ter-
cer campeonato de bateo en esa
division. Ese afio logr6 un prome-
dio de .350 puntos, conectando 30
dobletes, 11 triples, enpujando 62
carreras y estafindose la aprecia-
ble cantidad de 41 bases.
Carew logr6 ese mismo afio ser
seleccionado como el segundo sa-
quista del equipo de Estrellas de la
Liga Americana, por septimo afio
consecutive, y aument6 su prome-
dio de por vida en las grandes ligas
a .318 puntos, siendo el mais alto
entire los jugadores activos de la
Liga Mayor.
El formidable pelotero comenz6
a jugar beisbol cuando apenas tenia
7 afos de edad. Jugaba entonces
con bolas hechas de espuma de cau-
cho, forradas con gutapercha, y
usaba para batear un palo.
Antes de irse a vivir a Nueva
York con su madre en 1960, se de-
sempefi6 en Pequefias Ligas locales.
Hoy dia, dice el redactor de la
entrevista, Bob Fowler, Carew gana
aproximadamente $95.000 anuales.
Reside con su esposa, Marilynn, y
su pcquefia hija de 6 meses, Cha-
rvssse Britt, en la ciudad de Golden
Valley, en Minneapolis.
Este anio Rodnev Carc'v la ini-
ciado la temporada con suerte, y

Liga, hasta los priimeros dias de la

Hamlin se Retira Luego

De 34 Aiios de Servicio

Arqueo, peajes, lastre, trAnsitos,
carga y otros terminos de la jerga
marina fueron escuchados desde
muy pequefio por Eugene E. Ham-
lin, Jr., cuando su padre era Ar-
queador en Balboa.
Esos mismos t6rminos fueron em-
pleados despu6s casi diariamente
por Hamlin hijo, qui6n pas6 mis
tarde a trabajar con la empresa del
Canal. Hamlin se jubila luego de
completar 34 aiios de servicios, en
su gran mayoria con la Oficina de
Arqueo. Ejercia el cargo de Direc-
tor de Arqueo desde 1962.
El abuelo de Hamlin trabaj6 con
el Canal durante la 6poca de la
construcci6n. Posteriormente tam-
bidn su padre y su madre trabaja-
ron para la empresa del Canal. Du-
rante los 6ltimos 70 afios ha habido
siempre un familiar de su padre o
su madre trabajando para el Canal.
Hamlin naci6 en Anc6n, asisti6
a escuelas de la Zona del Canal y
se gradu6 de la Escuela Secundaria
de Balboa. Mereci6 la distinci6n de
recibir una asignaci6n para estudiar
en West Point, luego de graduarse
de secundaria. Sin embargo, no asis-
ti6 a West Point. Despues de 1 afio
en la Universidad de la Zona del
Canal ingres6 al Instituto Tecnol6-
gico Carnegie, en donde obtuvo la
licenciatura en ciencias con espe-
cializaci6n en ingenieria mecanica.
Hamlin habla muy bien el espafiol,
y da el cr6dito de ello a la Escuela
Secundaria de Balboa.
Su primer empleo con el Canal
fue como estudiante ingeniero con
la Division de Ingenieria Especial,
de 1939 a 1944. Entre 1944 y 1949
fue empleado como ingeniero me-
cAnico en el Departamento de Obras
Plblicas, Base Naval de los Estados
Unidos en Balboa. A fines de 1949
volvi6 a la empresa del Canal, y
fue empleado en la oficina de Ar-
queo. Fue ascendido en 1960 a
Jefe de Arqueo y 2 afios mAs tarde
lo fue a Director de Arqueo. En tal
cargo se convirti6 en una autoridad
