C.Z. Is Asked

To Save Energy

During Holidays
As a visible demonstration of its
continuing energy conservation pro-
gram, the Canal organization will
limit outdoor lighted displays dur-
ing the holiday season.
The three locations selected for
outdoor lighted displays are Balboa
High School, Cristobal High School,
and the Gamboa-Santa Cruz Retail
The widely separated sites were
chosen to enable residents of both
sides of the Isthmus and passengers
on transiting ships to enjoy a token
display of Christmas glitter while
conserving as much energy as
All Isthmian residents are urged
to forego outdoor lighted displays
this year, and to limit their indoor
displays to the period December 22
through December 29.

Improvement in labor-management relations is dis- ings at Balboa Heights with bureau directors and labor
cussed by Gov. David S. Parker during a recent meet- liaison officers representing the various bureaus.

I anr-Manarnpnt Aime Car Display Are

Outlined by Governor

Continued improvement of labor-
management relations within the
Canal organization was the theme
of a recent meeting held at Balboa
Heights by Gov. David S. Parker
with bureau directors and labor
liaison officers.
The meeting was called by Gov-
ernor Parker to discuss the status
of the Canal's labor-management
matters and to provide a forum to
reaffirm his support for an active
and imaginative program.
One of the key goals in the
Canal's labor-management program
is the establishment of intra-man-
agement communications to insure
that all levels of supervision are
informed. In this regard, the Gov-
ernor expressed his support of the
newsletter communications media
currently practiced in some bu-
reaus and urged other bureaus to
take the same approach where
Some of the other goals men-
tioned included: establishing and
insuring a continuing dialogue with
authorized union officials to be
aware of potential problem areas
before they become sources of con-
flict; insuring consistency in per-
sonnel practices; and developing
planned approaches to labor-man-
agement relations which will estab-
lish goals against which progress
can be measured.

Employees Get

30-Year Pins
A total of 117 employees of the
Canal organization on the Atlantic
side were presented 30-year pins
at a recent ceremony held at the
Rainbow City Auditorium.
William A. Sullivan, Chief, Em-
ployee Services Branch, Personnel
Bureau, opened the ceremony and
introduced Lt. Gov. Richard L.
Hunt and bureau directors attend-
ing the ceremony. Lieutenant Gov-
ernor Hunt presented the pins to
the employees.
Leading the Canal bureaus in the
number of 30-year-length-of-serv-
ice employees was the Marine Bu-
reau with 33 employees. The Sup-
ply and Community Service Bureau
was a close number two with 30
employees and the Transportation
and Terminals Bureau was third
with 26 employees. The Engineer-
ing and Construction Bureau had
13; Civil Affairs, 9, and the Health
Bureau, 6.

The Governor also discussed the
importance of prior consultation
with unions on all appropriate sub-
jects and clarified the role of the
labor liaison officers in achieving
Company-Government goals. It was
pointed out that all grievances
should be resolved at the lowest
possible supervisory level.
Those attending the meeting
were: D. A. Dertien, Marine Direc-
tor; A. L. Gallin, Chief, Transit
Operations Division; J. C. Dyer,
Marine Bureau Labor Relations
Officer; C. J. Browne, Acting En-
gineering and Construction Direc-
tor; J. M. Watson, Engineering and

Lawyer Is Appointed

To Canal's EEO Staff

Gloria E. Inniss will bring a
unique combination of training and
experience to the position of Equal
Employment Opportunity Special-
ist when she joins the staff of the
Special Assistant to the Governor
for EEO on Monday.
Born in Rio Piedras, P.R., Mrs.
Inniss received a bachelor of arts
degree from the University of
Puerto Rico in 1964.
She had intended to do social
work when she finished college but
because her parents wanted her to
be a lawyer, she entered the Uni-
versity of Puerto Rico School of
A law school program of pro-
viding free legal services to the poor
brought the realization that her
legal training coupled with her in-
terest in social work would make
her even better prepared to help
those unable to help themselves.
She found out just how true this
was when, after receiving her law
degree in 1968, she moved to New
York City.
In her first job with the Com-
munity Action for Legal Services,
she provided legal advice to the
poor Black, Puerto Rican and Jew-
ish population of one of New York's
ghetto areas, the Williamsburgh
Section of Brooklyn.
Of her work during this period,
Mrs. Inniss is most proud of the
part she played in organizing the
successful rent strikes against ab-
sentee landlords which received so
much publicity in the late 1960s.
In the next few years, she

Gloria Inniss

worked for other New York City
social action agencies; first as an
organizer for storefront community
services and later for the New York
City Addiction Services Agency
where she worked with drug ad-
dicts, participated in encounter
groups and conducted special
classes in drug education.
Mrs. Inniss married a U.S. Army,
officer in 1971 just before he left
for an assignment in the Canal
Her first job here was a tem-
porary one as a Social Studies In-
structor at the Army Education
Center where she taught the His-
tory of American Government to
military personnel.
After 6 months, she joined the
Army's Drug and Alcohol Rehabili-

Is Issued by

Following is the text of the
Thanksgiving Day proclamation
issued by President Gerald R. Ford.
"America and the world have
changed enormously since the first
Thanksgiving 353 years ago. From
a tiny coastal enclave on an un-
tamed continent, we have grown
into the mightiest, freest Nation in
human history. A civilization whose
farthest reach was once the earth's
uncharted seas has now plumbed
the secrets of outer space.
"But the fundamental meaning
of Thanksgiving still remains the
same. It is a time when the differ-
ences of a diverse people are for-
gotten and all Americans join in
giving thanks to God for the bless-
ings we share-the blessings of
freedom, opportunity and abun-
dance that make America so unique.
"This year, in the midst of plenty,
we still face serious problems and
massive challenges. In giving thanks
for the many things we hold dear,
let us also pray for the courage, re-
sourcefulness and sense of purpose
we will need to continue America's
saga of progress, and to be worthy
heirs of the Pilgrim spirit. May we,
too, find the strength and vision to
leave behind us a better world, and
an example that will inspire future
generations to new achievements.
"Now, therefore, I, Gerald R.
Ford, President of the United States
of America, in accordance with
Section 6103 of Title 5 of the United
States Code, do hereby proclaim
Thursday, November 28. 1974, as
a Day of National Thanksgiving.
"I call upon all Americans to
gather together in homes and places
of worship on this date, to join in
offering gratitude for the countless
blessings our people enjoy, and to
share with the elderly and the un-
fortunate this special day that
brings us all closer together."

A migratory waterfowl banding
program initiated here in February
1974 has a four-fold purpose: to de-
termine the flyways used by the
birds on their return to Canada, the
population distribution in Central
and South America, the percentage
harvested by hunters, and to con-
firm the natural mortality rate.
Only 1 in 10 of the bands are
now returned. But those few have
revealed such interesting facts as:
the life span of a bird is less than
2 years; one Herring Gull lived for
36 years.
You can help in the program. If
you find a banded bird, remove the
aluminum leg band and return it
to the address stamped on the band.
You can keep the band if you
prefer, but send a postcard to the
same address with the message:
"The following band number (copy
eight-digit number from band) was
recovered in Panama on (date
found)." If you put your return
address on the card, the banding
headquarters will send you a cer-
tificate of appreciation.

Atlantic Side to Get

New Pay Telephones
The Communications Branch will
begin an Atlantic side project on
Monday to replace the present
manual - type public telephones,
which use operator assistance, with
new automatic dial equipment.
The automatic coin telephones
will use the semipost pay method
which requires that the user deposit
coins after the party called answers.
The new coin telephone will have
the following instructions prom-
inently displayed:
Do Not Deposit Coins Before
1. Have dime or 2 nickels ready.
2. Listen for dial tone.
3. Dial number desired.
4. When party answers quickly de-
posit coins.
Calls for special services such as
directory assistance "114" and re-
pair and paging operator "113" are
free and do not require depositing
coins when the operator answers.

Leaking Water Pipe?

Here's What To Do

Would you know what to do if
you discovered water leaking from
a pipe in your home?
Gov. David S. Parker had that
experience when a pipe broke in
his residence at 11 p.m. one night.
Fortunately, he was able to lo-
cate and close a valve in the supply
line before the water caused any
The Maintenance Division Plumb-
ing Shop suggests that you prepare
yourself in advance with the knowl-
edge and equipment you would
need to cope with an emergency
until you could call a plumber.
The first thing to do is locate the
main water cut-off valve to the
building where you live. It is gen-
erally in a vertical run of pipe

where the main water supply line
enters the building.
The valve will be one of two
types. A gate valve which can be
identified by the shaft sticking out
of the valve with a wheel on the
end of the shaft. Or a stop cock
valve which has a square piece of
metal sticking out of it.
A gate valve is closed by turning
the wheel clockwise until the valve
is tight.
A wrench is needed to turn a
stop cock valve. It should be
turned 90 degrees so that the line
inscribed on the square plug is per-
pendicular to the pipe run.
In some cases, the main water
cut-off valve to a building may be
located inside a carport, storeroom
or patio which has been constructed
by one of the building occupants. If
this is the case in your building,
arrange with your neighbor to have
access to the closed area when the
owner is away.
In addition to the main water
cut-off valve, there are auxiliary
valves installed beneath each
plumbing fixture, except bathtubs,
in vour apartment. Locate these
auxiliary valves so that if a leak
develops in the piping below a fix-
ture, you can stop the flow 6f water
by closing the auxiliary valve.
As soon as you have done all that
you can do, call the plumber for
permanent repairs.
During normal working hours,
7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday
through Friday, plumbing repairs
should be requested by calling the
Housing Branch. On the Pacific
side, the number is 52-3384. On
the Atlantic side, call 43-2148.
After hours, emergency plumbing
work can be requested by dialing
the operator on 113.

Bottle feeding Pablo and Paco, twin male ocelots born at Summit Zoo last
month are Mrs. Nathan B. Gale and Mrs. David S. Parker. The two young
kittens, rarely born in captivity, are believed to be the first born at Summit.

New Summit Zoo Kittens

Are Both Bottle Babies

The feline population at Summit
Zoo was increased by two recently
when one of the adult female oce-
lots gave birth to twin male kittens.
Under normal conditions their
mother, anticipating their birth,
would have hidden away in a hol-
low tree or rocky cave to await
their birth and although zoo per-
sonnel provided a den for her, she
elected not to use it. Dr. Nathan
B. Gale, who provides technical
assistance for the zoo, pointed out
that since this was her first litter

Arts, Crafts Fair

To Be Held Saturday

The Gamboa Women's Club will
sponsor a holiday arts and crafts
fair from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.,
tomorrow in the Women's Club.
Besides many booths featuring
various types of handicrafted ar-
ticles suitable for gifts, there will
be homebaked goods and plants for
sale. Every hour there will be dif-
ferent demonstrations given on rug
making, quilting, macrame and
assorted crafts. An exhibit of easy-
to-do holiday ideas also will be
featured. There will be no admis-
sion charge.

and because another female and
the kittens' father also occupied the
cage, it was not unusual to have to
remove the kittens for their own
safety. This was accomplished
within a few hours of their birth
after zoo personnel saw the mother
nervously drop one of the newborn
Pablo and Paco, as they have
been named, weighed 350 gms and
240 gms when Dr. Gale took them
to his home to bottle-raise them.
For the first week, they were fed
on demand at roughly 3-hour in-
tervals around the clock. At 2 weeks
of age, their special milk formula
was fortified with vitamins and
minerals and they were fed every
4 hours.
They began getting strained meat
in their formula at 4 weeks and
at 6 weeks began passing up the
bottle as too slow and eating semi-
solid meat and milk mixture from
a bowl. Gradually, more substan-
tial meals, including chicken wings
and other delicacies, will be added
in ensuing weeks until the young-
sters become completely indepen-
As they outgrow their quarters
at the Gale's residence, they will be
returned to Summit Zoo. But ac-
cording to Dr. Gale, they will not
be able to go back with their par-
ents since their father, who will
not recognize them as his progeny,
will be likely to kill them.
These, and the other species of
Central and South American spotted
cats, margays and jaguars, are con-
sidered "endangered species" by
the U.S. Department of Interior
and commercial trade in them or
their skins is vigorously prohibited.
Authorities, who are concerned for
the future of many of the world's
animals, prohibit their entry into
the United States except for repro-
ductive or scientific purposes.

Estudiante de Paraiso Cuenta Sobre

Su Experiencia en Concejo Infantil

Una niia sobresaliente "con cua-
lidades de dirigente", segiln lo cx-
presa el Profesor Audlev Webster,
Director de la Escuela Primaria de
Paraiso, represent a] sector Paci-
fico de la Zona del Canal, en el
gobierno municipal infantil del Dia
dcl Nifio en la ciudad de Panama.
"Me senti muii halagada de ha-
ber sido clecta entire los nifios de mi
escuela", dice Tamara Henry, la
alumna sobresaliente a quien co-
rrespondi6 la suerte este ailo de re-
presentar al sector Pacifico de la
Zona del Canal. Y ain mAs placen-
tero result para Tamara el mo-
mento en que los pequefios con-
cejales la escogieron para ocupar
la Vicepresidencia del Concejo
Municipal Infantil.
La presidencia del Concejo es
ejercida por el Alcalde del Distrito,
en consecucncia el segundo rango
en jerarquia corresponde al cargo
de vicepresidente de esa cAmara.
En visit hecha por el SPILLWAY
]ala Escuela Primaria de Paraiso,
se sorprendi6 a Tamara justamente
dando sus impresiones sobre la ex-
celente experiencia, limitada s61o a
los mejores alumnos de los sextos
grades de las escuelas piblicas de
la ciudad de Panama.
El Director de la Escuela descri-
be a Tamara como "la alumna mas
capacitada de los tres sextos grades
del plantel, para recibir la alta dis-
tinci6n de former parte del gobier-
no municipal del Dia del Nifio".
Explica Webster que en la elecci6n
se tomaron en cuenta las califica-
ciones, personalidad, capacidad de
adaptarse a una nueva situaci6n y
otros factors. Advierte que otros
alumnos de los sextos grades tienen
similar promedio al de Tamara,
pero 6sta los aventaj6 en las demis
cualidades que se tomaron en con-
Dice Webster que esta es la se-
gunda ocasi6n que la Escuela Pri-
maria de Paraiso tiene representan-
te en el gobierno infantil. El afio
pasado el honor recay6 en el joven
IvAn Lowe.
"Al principio senti temor, pero al
conocer a los demAs nifios me fa-
miliarice rApidamente con ellos",
afirma Tamara. "Al segundo dia el
grupo se llevaba como si sus inte-
grantes fueran viejos amigos".
Los 62 alumnos que representa-
ban igual n6mero de escuelas dentro
del Distrito de PanamA y el sector
Pacifico de la Zona del Canal, fue-
ron sometidos a un period de
adiestramiento sobre todos los as-
pectos del gobierno municipal, fase
que estuvo a cargo del Secretario
General del Concejo, Andres Urefia
En reuri6n celebrada el dia 14
de octubre fueron electos por sor-
teo los 19 concejales infantiles, a
raz6n de uno por cada corregimien-
to del Distrito de PanamA. Los res-
tantes alumnos, entire ellos Tamara,
quedaban como elegibles para la
posterior selecci6n de los funciona-
rios municipals, tarea que corres-
ponderia a los pequefios concejales.
El 20 de octubre, en sesi6n ex-
traordinaria convocada para ese
prop6sito especifico, tuvo lugar la
elecci6n de los dignatarios munici-
pales. Correspondi6 a la nifia Lucila
Cercefio, de la Escuela John F.
Kennedy, la distinci6n de ser esco-
gida alcaldesa por los concejales
infantiles y enseguida a la pequefia
representante de la Escuela Prima-
ria de Paraiso, el honor de ser nom-
brada vicepresidenta. Hay que ano-
tar que, de confonnidad con el
nuevo regimen municipal de Pa-
nama, el Alcalde preside el Con-
cejo, y en su ausencia desempefia
tal funci6n el vicepresidente.
Al ser electa, Tamara pidi6 la
palabra y agradeci6 la distinci6n de
que fue objeto. Luego se sent en
la posici6n que le correspondia
dentro de la mesa directive, y co-
menz6 a desempenar sus funciones.
Como vicepresidenta, le correspon-
di6 a Tamara juramentar a la al-

Orgullosa, Tamara muestra el che-
que de $25 que recibi6 como dieta
durante la sesi6n ordinaria del Con-
cejo infantil. Del cuello le pende
un collar que le fue regalado por
la CAmara Edilicia.

Sesi6n Formal
Finalmente lleg6 el dia esperado.
Era la sesi6n ordinaria del Concejo
Municipal Infantil del Dia del Nifo,
muy concurrida por educadores, fa-
miliares de los pequefios y psiblico
en general, y que este afio fue trans-
mitida por radio a todo el pais.
En la sesi6n, Tamara no present
proyecto alguno, pero tuvo una in-
tervenci6n en favor de un proyecto
presentado por un concejal infantil
para que se dotara de servicios ade-
cuados a la Escuela Belisario Po-
rras. "Me manifesto de acuerdo con
el proyecto, porque las aguas su-
cias o desechos pueden ser fuente
de enfermedades para los niiios de
esa escuela", explica.
La moci6n, como otras igualmen-
te importantes, fueron aprobadas
por el Concejo infantil. Estos pro-
yectos pasaron a ser considerados,
segin el trimite de rigor, por el
pleno del Concejo y deben ser apro-
bados en otras dos sesiones para
que sean leyes del Distrito. El Se-
cretario Urefia Escobar afirma que
muchos de los proyectos aprobados
por los concejos infantiles se han
constituido en leyes del Distrito.
Uno de los proyectos presenta-
dos por el Concejo infantil es el que

destina becas para los pequefios es-
cogidos para integrar el Concejo
Municipal Infantil del Dia del Niiio.
Similar proyecto fue aprobado el
aio pasado.
De concretarse la beca, Tamara
desea continuar estudiando en el
Institute Fermin Naudeau de la
ciudad de PanamA. "He oido que
los que salen de esa escuela pue-
den obtener trabajo fAcilmente y
tambi6n que a ella solo asisten
alumnos escogidos", dice.
Tamara piensa que es muy tem-
prano para decidirse por una pro-
fesi6n. Pero cree que le gustaria
ser pediatra o, tal vez, ginec6loga.
Como parte de las actividades
programadas para los integrantes
del Concejo Municipal Infantil, Ta-
mara particip6 en una excursion a
las Esclusas de Miraflores y un pa-
seo por el Canal a bordo de la lan-
cha Las Cruces; en visits al Club
de Golf, que serA transformado en
un gran parque, la Guarderia In-
fantil de El Marafi6n y la Cerve-
ceria Nacional.
En el Club de Golf se les ofreci6
un especticulo jocoso, en que un
grupo de nifios parodiaron a los Ti-
tanes del Ring. En la Guarderia de
El Marafi6n les mostraron su fun-
cionamiento y les sirvieron golosi-
nas y refrescos, atenciones estas que
se repitieron durante la visit hecha
a la Cerveceria Nacional.
Sobre el paseo por el Canal, Ta-
mara dice que, aunque ella ya lo
conocia, disfrut6 much con sus
compafieros. Los pequefios, explica
Tamara, hacian muchas preguntas
sobre el funcionamiento del Canal,
al guia que los atendi6. "Vimos una
pelicula, luego nos llevaron a Gam-
boa a tomar la lancha y de alli fui-
mos hasta Pedro Miguel".
Orgullosos Padres
Los padres de Tamara son Ricar-
do Arnulfo Henry, bombero en la
Zona del Canal desde 1956, y la
Sra. Noemi Priscilla de Henry. Ta-
mara tiene dos hermanos: Ricar-
do, Jr. y Raquel, que cursan el
cuarto y el octavo grado en Pa-
raiso. "Todos son muy buenos alum-
nos", dice uno de los profesores de
Ricardo A. Henry sinti6 un espe-
cial orgullo al saber de la elecci6n
de su hija menor para representar
a su Escuela en el gobierno muni-
cipal infantil. "Fue una inmensa
satisfacci6n", atina a decir, "por
dos razones: por ser mi hija y por
reafirmar ello el 6xito que ha al-
canzado en los studioss.

clusi6n de que era compatible con
su interns en el trabajo social, y
m;is ain, contribuia a perfeccio-
narla, en su prop6sito de ayudar a
aquellos que requirieran asistencia.
Tuvo oportunidad de comprobar
lo correct de esta apreciaci6n al
trasladarse a la ciudad de Nueva
York en 1968, despu6s de recibir
su titulo de derecho.
En su primera experiencia en el
Departamento de Actividades Co-
munales para Servicios Legales pro-
porcion6 asesoria legal a la pobla-
ci6n humilde integrada por negros,
portorriquefios y judios en una de
las barriadas pobres, la Secci6n de
Williamsburgh, en Brooklyn.
Posteriormente trabaj6 con va-
rias agencies de acci6n social en
Nueva York. Alli labor primero en
la organizaci6n de servicios a la
comunidad y despues para la Agen-
cia de Ayuda a los Adictos, donde
le toc6 trabajar directamentc con
drogadictos, particip6 en reuniones
de grupos y dirigi6 classes especia-
les de educaci6n sobre drogas.
Su primer empleo aqui fue de
caricter temporal, como instructo-
ra de studios sociales en el Centro
de Educaci6n del Ej6rcito.
Despubs de 6 meses, se incorpo-
r6 al Programa de Rehabilitaci6n

Tiene la impresi6n de que en
su nuevo cargo como Ayudante
del Funcionario de Oportunidades
Iguales de Empleo, su caracteris-
tica de ser "de la raza negra y de
habla espafiola" le facilitard el trato
confidential con las minorias.
Aunque es de piel blanca, ella
sostiene que el color de la piel
tiene poco que ver con la raza de
la persona. For ello se incluye den-
tro de la raza negra.
Agrega que, en virtud de haber
sido ella victim de discriminaci6n
sabe perfectamente que esta prActi-
ca existe, a inque en algunos casos
se realize en forma disfrazada. Co-
rresponde a una persona con espe-
cial sensatez y sensibilidad con res-
pecto a los problems de otros, pre-
cisar cuando se ejerce la discrimi-
naci6n. Confia en ser ella la per-
sona son tales cualidades.
La principal funci6n de la Espe-
cialista de la Oficina de Oportuni-
dades Iguales de Empleo es inves-
tigar las quejas de discriminaci6n
que se presentan a esa dependencia.
