Firemen Are Guardians


Of C.Z. Life, Property


Annual reports are notoriously
dull reading. Not so, the "Annual
Report for the Fire Division for
Fiscal Year 1974."
In cold, tabulated statistics, it
reveals a dramatic story that makes
one wonder if anywhere else a
smaller group of men is doing a
bigger job than the officers and
men of the Panama Canal organi-
zation's Fire Division.
In FY 74, 148 men responded to
1,603 calls to the 10 fire stations
spread across the Isthmus.
Most were fire alarms. The
causes of the 844 fires the men ex-
tinguished are a second revelation:
205 from discarded cigarettes and
matches, 64 from unattended
stoves, 13 from incendiarism, 2
from smokingin bed, and a fright-
ening 51 from children playing
with matches.
Immediate professional response
of the highly trained and motivated
Fire Division personnel succeeded
in preventing the loss of a single
life from fire. Fire loss to property
valued at $30,347,150 actually
amounted to only $134,595.
The Fire Department keeps
watch over the Canal Zone com-
munity in many ways far removed
from firefighting. During the year,
they answered 610 other emer-
gency calls that took them to the
aid of victims of heart, diabetic
and epileptic attacks, convulsions,
injuries, attempted suicides, and
even a woman in childbirth.
And they also expended at least
300 manhours on 149 false alarms.
Chief K. T. Daly and a district
fire commander on each side of the
Isthmus are charged with the re-
sponsibility of fire protection and
firefighting in Canal Zone commu-
nities, including military areas, ships
and floating equipment in Canal
waters, brush, ammunition and
chemical storage areas and much
more.
Fighting more than two fires a
day while responding to every
known emergency would seem a
full-time job for any 148 men. But
they do more. The Fire Division
personnel engaged in a fire preven-
tion program of 370 demonstrations,
lectures, film showings and displays
for employees, students and the
public.
An even more intensive program
during Fire Prevention Week in-
cluded a poster and essay contest
that earned the winning Canal Zone
school students honorary fire mar-
shal certificates.
The sheer weight of numbers in
the annual report overwhelms those
unfamiliar with the division's activi-
ties. It conducted 4,052 fire inspec-
tions of Company-Government facil-
ities, 4,989 fire inspections of living

Library to Repeat
3 Films of the Sea
Due to the overwhelming re-
sponse of the community and lim-
ited seating facilities at the JWB,
the films Sharks, The Sea and
Whales featuring Jacques Cousteau
will be shown again at the USO-
JWB at 7:30 p.m., December 16.
This will be the final showing in
the 1974 Film Program sponsored
by the Canal Zone Library until the
program is resumed next year. Ad-
mission is free and all are invited
to attend.


quarters, and 279 school fire drills.
The name firefighter from the
chief to the newest trainee takes on
new meaning when the diversity of
their mission is told. These men do
fight fires. They also teach. They
prevent fires. They save lives. They
give life. They are the ever-watch-
ful guardians of the population of
the Canal Zone.

Shriners to Hold Parade
The Abou Saad Shriners will have
a parade in Balboa starting at 9:30
a.m. Saturday, December 7. The
Parade, which will feature clowns
and the motorized unit, will begin
from La Boca, proceed to Stevens
Circle and end at Balboa Elemen-
tary School.

ernment employees and remove the

The result has been 14 automatic
cost-of-living pay adjustments since
January 1, 1963; with a 15th in-
crease to be effective on January 1,
1975.
Next month's 7.4 percent adjust-
ment is the third in 12 months, and
brings to 20.6 percent the cumu-
lative increase received by annuit-
ants since January 1, 1974.
Translated into dollars and cents,
this means that for every $100
retirees received prior to January 1,
1963, they will be receiving
$213.83 after January 1, 1975.

Santa Claus will be paying visits
to both sides of the Isthmus this

from 1 p.m., December 14, at the
Coco Solo Theater.


Microfilm Unit chief George Bell enters the Printing Plant annex which
also houses a warehouse and addressing unit.


La Boca Printing Plant Annex

Helps to Streamline Operations


If everything continues to oper-
ate as efficiently as it began, the
4,835 square foot annex built onto
the rear of the Printing Plant at
La Boca will mean a better chance
for unstuck envelopes, streamlined
addressing operations and bigger
and better microfilm services.
The concrete, air-conditioned
annex is divided into three areas
housing a warehouse, addressing
unit and microfilm unit-all activi-
ties of the Administrative Services
Division.
The 84' x 35' warehouse is used
to store paper and envelopes. It
can hold approximately 3 million
sheets of paper and eliminates the
time and manpower previously ex-
pended picking up paper from
Section B twice a week.
All of the paper in current use


for the 100 million units the plant
prints a year previously was stacked
in aisles and work areas until it was
needed. The warehouse eliminates
this clutter thus adding to the safety
of operations.
General foreman John G. Bing,
in charge of printing operations,
says that another important advan-
tage of the warehouse is the air-
condition treatment of paper stocks
that will reduce wastage when pass-
ing through the presses.
Bindery foreman Cirilo Alexan-
der is in charge of the address-
ograph unit-the second operation
in the new building. It is a related
function of a printing plant and, in
fact, was a part of the plant when
it was located at Mount Hope.

Admin. Services

Chief to Retire
Harold L. Anderson, fondly
known as "Andy," is retiring from
his position as Chief of the Admin-
istrative Services Division, the offi-
ce he has occupied since March of
1970. At the end of this month,
Anderson closes a Federal Govern-
ment career of more than 37 vears-
a total of 31 years is Panama Canal
service.
A member of the Governor's
Staff, and head of the service orga-
nization of the Panama Canal, An-
derson has for the past 5 years
been responsible for a number of
branches and units including Gen-
eral Services, Graphic, Transporta-
tion, Records Management, Agency
Records and the Canal's Printing
Plant.
A native of Springfield, Mo., An-
derson came to the Panama Canal
in 1940, employed in the Corre-
spondence Bureau of the former
Executive Department. During this
time, in addition to his regular
duties, he was relief secretary to
Gov. J. C. Mehaffey and Gov. F. K.
Newcomber. He was previously em-
ployed in the Adjutant General's
Office and the Office of the Chief
of Field Artillery in Washington,
D.C.
Anderson's Panama Canal service
was interrupted from 1943 to 1946,
when he served in the U.S. Navy
in the 7th Amphibious Force in the
Pacific. Upon his return to the
Canal organization, he was em-
ployed as an administrative assist-
ant in the Executive Secretary's
Office, where he remained until
1950, when he transferred to the
Administrative Branch as Chief of
General Services. He was promoted
to Assistant Chief of the Admin-
istrative Services Division in 1965.
During his many years with the
Administrative Services Division,
Anderson has been a part of numer-
ous changes and expansion activi-
ties occurring in the division. The
Agency Records Center, with its
unit were previously located in the
Agency Records Center. Having the

Master's Degree Earned


By Teacher, Mother of 6


An Atlantic side woman who
is the mother of six recently re-
ceived her Master of Htunan Rela-
tions degree from the University of
Oklahoma following an intensive
course of study while holding down
a full time job.
Mrs. Patricia L. Bjorneby of
Coco Solo was one of a group of
Canal Zone residents who com-
pleted their studies locally under
the university's Advanced Programs.
A graduation ceremony, the uni-
versity's first on the Isthmus, was
held earlier in the year for those
who had completed or nearly fin-
ished their master's work. Mrs.
Bjorneby was one of those honored
at the ceremony but it was not un-
til last month that she received her
diploma through the mails, enclosed
in a bright leather folder.
Wife of Richard J. Bjornebv, who
is employed in the Navigation Di-
vision and active in a U.S. Civic
Council, Mrs. Bjorneby holds a
bachelor's degree in speech therapy
from Florida State University and


Police officer James P. Barnes,
better known as "Pinky," will retire
December 28 after 26 years of
Government service. Pinky is well
known in the community for his
contributions to the youth baseball
leagues. During the past 15 years
he has managed teams in all of the
leagues. He has always stressed the
importance of good sportsmanship
and teamwork, in the hope of
teaching his boys something more
than just the winning of ball games.
Pinky and his family will leave the
Isthmus January 3 to make their
new home on a farm just outside
of Dallas, Tex. A retirement party
for Pinky is being held at the Bal-
boa Elks Club at 8 p.m., Decem-
ber 13. Tickets may be obtained by
calling 52-7862.


served as a recreation specialist at
Margarita Elementary School while
taking courses at the University of
Oklahoma.
The university's Advanced Pro-
grams combines attendance at in-
tensive seminar sessions with inde-
pendent study and research. Stu-
dents registering for a course re-
ceive outlines and books 4 to 6
weeks in advance of the start of
class. A professor from the main
campus at Norman, Okla., comes
to the Isthmus, usually on the Pa-
cific side, and conducts classes for
1 week, from 2:30 to 9:30 p.m.
Because she could take only two
or three courses on the Atlantic
side, Mrs. Bjorneby commuted by
car to the Pacific side to attend
class, usually taking one course a
month. The Atlantic siders would
divide the driving duties among the
entire group so no one person would
have to do it all the time.
Mrs. Bjorneby, who is the former
Patricia Leach of Colon, says it
took her approximately 2 years of
work to earn sufficient credits for
her degree but she considers it well
worth the effort. Her family, and
it's a big one, helped out consider-
ably when she was studying.
Her children are: Mrs. Jan Mis-
nik of Buffalo, N.Y.; Michael, a stu-
dent at Canal Zone College; Kari,
attending school in Spokane, Wash.;
John, a student at Cristobal High
School; Marc, a first grader at Coco
Solo Elementary School and Kristi,
who is in kindergarten at Coco Solo.
Others who recently completed
their work for graduate degrees
under the University of Oklahoma's
local program included several
Canal employees: Ray R. Dymond,
Police Division; Frances T. Envart,
Personnel Bureau; Sharon K. Keller,
Office of the Youth Advisor; Betty
Annis, Schools Division; Enrique
Marquez and Jos6 Meyer, Main-
tenance Division.
Dependents of Panama Canal
employees, in addition to Mrs. Bjor-
neby, were Nellie M. Goffeney,
Sally McLaren and Tillie McTag-
gart.
Carwash Is Scheduled
The Ancon Assembly No. 3, Order
of Rainbow for Girls, will have a
carwash from 8 a.m. to 12 noon
tomorrow at the Chase Manhattan
Bank parking lot in Balboa. Pro-
ceeds will be used to support the
group's charity projects.


Vital Statistics

Office Is Moved to

Gorgas Hospital
The public is reminded that the
Vital Statistics Office, for certificates
of birth or death that occurred in
the Canal Zone, has been moved
from the Administration Building,
Balboa Heights, to the first floor of
Building 237 (old Administration
Building) at Gorgas Hospital.
Hours are 7:15 a.m. to 12 noon
and 1 to 4:15 p.m. The telephone
number of the Vital Statistics Office
is 52-7131.


Pen Women Plan

Xmas Boutique

Members of the National League
of American Pen Women, Canal
Zone and Panama Branch, will hold
their annual Christmas Boutique on
the ground floor of the Civil Affairs
Building, Gaillard Highway, from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m., December 7.
There will be a large assortment
of art in all media to select from,
handicraft items, dried pressed
flower arrangements, wall hang-
ings, stocking stuffers and Christ-
mas decorations.
The public is invited to shop early
for best selection.


As a result of a recent influx of
counterfeit U.S. currency into the
Canal Zone, residents and employ-
ees are being cautioned to be on
the alert for bogus bills.
Persons who handle cash in their
daily work, particularly, are asked
to be on the lookout for the coun-
terfeit money. As Christmas ap-
proaches, greater sums of cash than
usual will change hands. Anyone
receiving what they believe is a
counterfeit bill, should call Canal
Zone Police immediately and should
do their best to remember the
source of the money.
The bad bills that have turned
up in the Canal Zone during the


CHS Graduate

Receives High

Service Award
Dr. Patricia Rickels, English pro-
fessor at the University of South
West Louisiana at Lafayette, La.,
was recently named "Humanitarian
of the Year" and presented the
Martin Luther King, Jr., memorial
award by the Lafayette Council on
Human Relations, in recognition of
her outstanding service during the
past year to the cause of human
relations.
A board member of the State
Council on Human Relations with
whom she has worked for the past
16 years, Dr. Rickels is a 1944 grad-
uate of Cristobal High School and
attended Canal Zone College where
she was a charter member of the
National Honor Society. She was
graduated from the University of
Washington at Seattle and later re-
ceived her master's degree and doc-
torate in English from Louisiana
State University at Baton Rouge.
She also has done post doctoral
work in black art and black litera-
ture at Southern University at
Baton Rouge and also teaches these
subjects. Several years ago, Dr.
Rickels taught a summer session at
the Canal Zone Branch of LSU.
Dr. Rickels is the daughter of
Mrs. Charlotte Kennedy, well-
known American Red Cross volun-
teer of the Canal Zone Chapter and
first aid chairman of the chapter.
Her brother, Edward M. Kennedy,
is chief of the Industrial Division.
Dr. Rickels' husband, Dr. Milton
Rickels, also is a professor of Eng-
lish at LSU.


Earning the Annual Sanitation Award for the second
consecutive year calls for a celebration, and Dr. Bed-
ford H. Berrey, Health Director, right, and Dr. William
R. Bunge, Director of the Coco Solo Hospital, second
from left, join employees of the Coco Solo Hospital
Dietary Department for the festivities. All Canal orga-
nization food establishments compete for the award
which is presented to the one that undergoes 12
monthly sanitation inspections without a recorded


past months were in varied denom-
inations, from $5 to $50.
Many of the more recent coun-
terfeit $50 bills being circulated on
the Isthmus have a very important
obvious flaw in the face of them.
The small letters (face plate letter)
in the upper left hand corner and
the lower right hand are different.
They should always be the same.
That is, if one of the letters is "a"
the other should be "a." There is
no exception to this rule. The letters
can be a, b, c or d, no other.
Genuine U.S. bills are printed on
a high-quality grade of paper made
exclusively for this purpose and the
reproduction of illustrations and
figures is sharper than on imitations.
An effective way to determine if a
suspect bill is counterfeit is to fold
it in half down the center and place
it next to the other half of a genuine
bill that also has been folded.
On the genuine bills, the por-
traits are clear and sharp while
those on the counterfeit are not.
The points of the seals on good bills
are sharp and well defined while
those on the bogus money are dull
and broken off. Also, the serial
numbers on counterfeit money fre-
quently are uneven.
There is a distinct difference be-
tween the feel of even high-quality
counterfeit money when it is han-
dled and a legitimate bill. Anyone
who handles a bill that feels differ-
ent to the touch should examine it
closely and compare it with other
bills known to be genuine.

materials for employees and the
general public; and the major
change in the Transportation Branch
was the conversion of the SS Cris-
tobal to a freighter and subsequent
establishment of the charter flights.
Anderson has worked for all the
Executive Secretaries of the Canal
Zone: C. A. McIlvaine, Frank Wang,
.E. C. Lombard, Paul Runnestrand
and J. Patrick Conley. It was during
the Lombard era that he became
acquainted with Mary Maguire, who
was then secretary to the Executive
Secretary and it was Lombard him-
self who played cupid after his
secretary had rebuffed Anderson's
attentions. Eventually Anderson and
Miss Maguire, were married.
Both Andersons have worked
closely with Gov. David S. Parker
during his three tours of duty on
the Isthmus; in the early 1950s
when he was military assistant to
Gov. J. S. Seybold, in the 1960s,
when he was Lieutenant Governor,
and during his present tour.
Mrs. Anderson, secretary to Ex-
ecutive Secretary J. Patrick Conley,
was born and reared in the Canal
Zone. She was graduated from Bal-
boa High School and Canal Zone
College and first was employed in
the Schools Division. Later she was
secretary to Governor Seybold and
Gov. W. E. Potter.
In addition to his official duties,
Anderson has taken an active part
in community affairs. For many
years he has been active in the
Canal Zone United Way Campaign
and the Combined Federal Cam-
paign and recently completed his
10th year as chairman of the Pro-
motion and Publicity Committee of
the organizations. He served for
many years in the Canal Zone
Chapter of the American Red Cross
and is a member of its board of
directors as well as a member of
the board of directors of the Heart
Association. He served for 19 years
as Jury Commissioner for the U.S.
District Court and is a 30-year
member of Post 1 of the American
Legion.
An amateur astronomer, Ander-
son has enjoyed studying the stars
in the Isthmian skies, going so far
as to grind his own telescope mirror.
He has been an avid rockhound and
enjoyed fishing.
The Andersons, who will denart
the Isthmus on the SS Cristobal on
January 3, plan to make their retire-
ment home in Springfield, Mo.

Questions, Answers

About Retirement
Question: May an employee make
deposits to the retirement fund in
addition to the regular 7 percent
deduction from pay?
Answer: Yes. Such deposits, com-
monly known as voluntary contri-
butions, are made for the express
purpose of increasing the annuity
at the time of retirement. These
contributions must be made in mul-
tiples of $25 (i.e., $25, $50, $125,
$200, etc.) and the total may not
exceed 10 percent of the total basic
civilian pay received since Au-
gust 1, 1920.
Q.: Is the privilege of making
voluntary contributions open to all
employees?
A.: It is open to any employee
who is a member of the retirement
system, provided he does not owe
any, deposit or redeposit covering
prior service.
Q.: Is there any limitation on the
amount of the basic annuity an em-
ployee may earn?
A.: Yes. The maximum basic an-
nuity generally cannot be more than
80 percent of the "high-3" average
pay. If the amount of the annuity
indicated by the initial computation
exceeds this 80 percent figure, the
basic annuity must be reduced to
80 percent of the "high-3" average
pay. There is, however, one excep-
tion to this general rule. Any
amount in excess of the 80 percent
which is due to crediting unused
sick leave is payable.

(Continued from p. 1)


unit right in the plant eliminates
the job of hauling printed material
to the Records Center for ad-
dressing.
John M. Purvis, Superinten-
dent of the Printing Plant, antici-
pates that work orders will move
out much faster when the bugs have
Ieen worked out of the new pro-
cedures. Already, one job was in
the hands of the requester 7 days
ahead of schedule.
While the addressing unit and
warehouse increase efficiency and
decrease expenses, it is the micro-
film unit that brings a bit of drama
to the new building.
Relocated from a small room in
the Balboa Railroad Station, the Mi-
crofilm Unit occupies 1,450 square
feet of space in the annex. As func-
tional and efficient as it is, it never-
theless reminds one of a movie set.
To enter the dark room, you step
into a ceiling-high black cylinder, a
handle is pushed, the cylinder
revolves and you step out into total
blackness.
In fact, it is so unusual that it is
the first thing George Bell, who is in
charge of the unit, shows a visitor
before he explains the work that
he does and how microfilm services
have been improved and increased
in the new building.
The additional space available
for the microfilm operations also

tions for the Engineering Division,

Bicycle Safety
The Office of the Safety Director
oilers the following safety tips
when shopping for a new bike:
* If you're buying a bicycle for
a child, choose one to fit the child's
size today, not one he or she will
"grow into" later.
* A bicycle should suit the
rider's ability and kind of riding.
* In addition to the required re-
flectors, tape retro-reflective trin to
the fenders, handlebars, chain-
guards, and wheel sidewalls to make
it recognizable in the dark as a
bicycle.
* Attach headlight and taillight.
* Check hand and foot brakes
for fast, easy stops without insta-
bility or jamming.
* Avoid slippery plastic pedals.
Look instead for rubber-treaded
pedals, or metal pedals with ser-
rated rattrap edges or with firmly
attached toeclips.
* Don't buy a bicycle with sharp
points and edges, especially along
fenders, or with protruding bolts
that could scrape or tear clothing.
* Don't buy a bicycle with gear
controls (or other protruding attach-
ments) mounted on the top tube of
a man's bicycle.

Scouts to Collect

Items For Christmas
The Explorers and Boy Scouts of
the Canal Zone, in conjunction with
the Salvation Army, are planning to
help less fortunate people to have a
better Christmas.
The Scouts will distribute collec-
tion bags door-to-door tomorrow
and Sunday so the public may do-
nate food, clothing and toys. The
following weekend, the Scouts will
return to collect the bags and any
contributions they contain to aid the
underprivileged.
Residents who wish to make dona-
tions but will not be at home may
leave their bags with neighbors. For
more information, call Ron Tyson
at 52-6512 or 52-6711.

Los Bomberos de la Z


Los informes anuales son con fre-
cuencia aburridos. No asi el pre-
parado por la Divisi6n de Bombe-
ros para el Afio Fiscal 1974.
Las frias cifras estadisticas reve-
lan una dramAtica historic que in-
duce a dudar sobre la posibilidad
de que alguna entidad tan reducida
en su numero como la Divisi6n de
Bomberos de la Empresa del Canal,
pueda realizar labor de tal magni-
tud e importancia.
El afio fiscal 1974 los 140 miem-
bros de la Divisi6n de Bomberos
respondieron a 1.603 llamadas rea-
lizadas a las 10 estaciones de bom-
beros distribuidas en ambos secto-
res del Istmo.
En su mayoria las llamadas eran
a causa de incendios. Los 844 fue-
gos extinguidos son otra revelaci6n
de la Ardua tarea cumplida por los
bombers. 205 de estos incendios
fueron provocados por cigarrillos y
f6sforos lanzados, 64 por descuidos
en las estufas, 13 por incendiaris-
mo, 2 por personas que fumaban en
la cama y, asombroso, 51 por peque-
ios que jugaban con f6sforos.
La acci6n inmediata del perso-
nal de la Divisi6n de Bomberos im-

Pensiones de

Los Jubilados

Se Han Doblado
Un incremento de mas del 100
por ciento en el salario mensual
despucs de 12 aiios es algo reserva-
do para mny pocas personas, pero
esto es precisamente lo que esta
ocurriendo a los empleados Fede-
rales que se jubilaron antes del 19
de enero de" 1963.
Una ley aprobada en octubre de
1962 estaba orientada a mantener
el powder adquisitivo de los emplea-
dos jubilados del Gobierno de los
Estados Unidos y a eliminar las in-
certidumbres econ6micas que pesan
sobre quienes depcnden de un in-
greso fijo.
Como resultado de ello ha sido
necesario aplicar 14 ajustes en el
cost de la vida a partir del 10 de
enero de 1963, y un 159 anmento
deberi cntrar cn vigor el pr6ximo
1' de enero de 1975.
El ajuste del 7.4 por ciento es el
tercero en 12 meses y eleva al 20.6
por ciento el aumento acumulativo
recibido por los pensionados desde
enero de 1974.
Traducido a d6lares y centavos,
esto significa que por cada $100
recibidos por los jubilados antes de
enero de 1963, estarin recibiendo
$213.86 despu6s del 1" de enero
de 1975.

Mayra I. Calder6n, atenta recepcio-

sus sugerencias no significaron aho-
rros econ6micos computables a la
dcpendencia en donde labor, pero
en cambio contribuyeron a simplifi-
car y a mejorar las funciones en su
irea de trabajo. En ambos casos re-
cibi6 el reconocimiento, mediante
certificado y carta del Comite de
Premios por Incentivo. La tercera
sugerencia si represent ahorros
significativos y ello le mereci6 un
reconocimiento en dinero efectivo.
Opina que el Programa de Premios
por Incentivo es bueno, pues pro-
mueve las buenas ideas. "Es agra-
dable saber que una idea de uno le
ha sido aceptada", afiade a conti-
nuaci6n. Estas no han sido las pri-
meras sugerencias hechas por May-
ra, en su afan de mejorar las cosas
en su lugar de trabajo. Sin embargo,
en las ocasiones anteriores sus ini-
ciativas se han producido verbal-
mente y algunas han sido aplicadas,

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Joe Watson Termina el 28


Brillante Hoja de Servicio


El primer memorandum que se
puso en el cartapacio de los archi-
vos de la Direcci6n de Personal
sobre un joven llamado Joseph M.
Watson, de 20 afios, en junior de
1940 servia para cambiar su status
de temporal a permanent como ofi-
cinista general, con un sueldo de
$131.25.
Treinta y cuatro afios despu6s,
otro memorandum fechado en ju-
nio de 1974, recomienda al mismo
Joseph M. Watson, que ha llegado
a ser Funcionario Jefe de Personal
de la Direcci6n de Ingenieria y
Construcci6n, para que se le otor-
gue por quinta vez el premio por
desempefio sobresaliente en el tra-
bajo y un aumento por calidad
superior de trabajo.
Joe Watson, quien se prepare a
jubilarse este mes, tiene sumo orgu-
1lo en sefialar que todas las cartas
de encomio, de agradecimiento o
de recomendaci6n para un premio
que se le han escrito, mencionan su
trabajo con las personas, pues su
principal interns es ]a gente, ya sea
dentro o fuera del trabajo.
Una de las cartas resume las nu-
merosas citaciones que se le han
hecho con una brillante frase: "Su
caracteristica sobresaliente consis-


Empleado de Sanidad

Participa en Marat6n

Del Dia de la Madre
Francisco Elias Torres, empleado
de la Divisi6n de Sanidad del Canal,
sera uno de los competidores que
estarAn el pr6ximo domingo 8 de
diciembre en el Punto de Partida,
frente al Edificio Avesa en la Via
Espafia, para participar en el Mara-
t6n de Veteranos que se ha organi-
zado para esa fecha en honor a las
madres panamefias.
Torres, quien se desempefiacomo
exterminador de mosquitos, es un
veteran competitor en carreras de
aliento. Sus mejores afios como fon-
dista, recuerda, fueron en los tiem-
pos en que Faustino L6pez, preci-
samente el organizador del mara-
t6n del domingo, destacaba en el
atletismo panameio.
Para esta nueva aventura, Torres
se ha preparado con especial esme-
ro. Todas las madrugadas practice,
alternando su centro de prActicas
entire el Paseo de la Avenida Balboa
y la playa de FarfAn. "Estoy con-
fiado en que llegar6 primero a la
meta en esta ocasi6n", terminal
diciendo.


te en que reconoce, comprende y
se da cuenta de que trata con per-
sonas, con emociones y con el com-
portamiento human, no simple-
mente con pedazos de papel".
La lista de "deberes adicionales"
de Watson parece igual a la des-
cripci6n de empleo de cualquier
empleado. Durante este tiempo,
ha sido Consejero de Igualdad de
Oportunidades de Empleo, Funcio-
nario de Guardia Ayudante en el
Centro de Comando del Goberna-
dor, Miembro del Crupo en el Co-
mit6 Asesor sobre Quejas, Exami-
nador de Audiencias, Notario Pi-
blico y miembro de la Directiva de
los Seguros Colectivos.
Es una prueba evidence de que
mientras mLs cosas lleva a cabo una
persona, mis tiempo puede encon-
trar para Ilevar a cabo otros pro-
yectos.
Su preocupaci6n por las perso-
nas para las cuales y con las que
trabaj6 se ha manifestado tambien
en sus actividades fuera del tra-
bajo.
Durante 9 afios, fue tesorero de
la Asociaci6n de Educaci6n Espe-
cial de la Zona del Canal; en dos
ocasiones, de 1966 a 1968 y de
1972 a 1973, fue president del
Comit6 Administrativo de la Junta
Hebrea de Beneficencia y durante
10 afios, fue miembro de ese co-
mit6.
Ha sido miembro de la directive
de la Cruz Roja Americana y su
jefe de relaciones pdblicas, miem-
bro de la Legi6n Americana y de
la Orden de Masoneria.
Durante muchos afios ha traba-
jado en las producciones teatrales
que todos los afios se ofrecen a be-
neficio de la Campafia Federal
Combinada. Trabaj6 tras bastido-
res, en la taquilla y fue gerente
commercial de las obras "Hombre de
La Mancha", "Oliver!", "Mame",
"Festival" y "Un Violinista en el
Tejado".
Watson es president de la Co-
operativa de CrBdito de la Zona
del Canal, durante 6 afios fue
miembro de su junta directive y
durante mis de 20 afios, miembro
del comit6 de cr6ditos.
En 1972, el Gobernador David
S. Parker reconoci6 los sobresa-
lientes servicios prestados a la co-
munidad del Istmo por Watson, al
otorgarle el medall6n de bronce de
Premio por Servicios PiAblicos.

Descoll6 Equipo de Paraiso


ATLETAS DE PARAISO
La representaci6n de Paraiso en los Primeros Juegos Nacionales para J6venes Impedidos aparece
en la foto, con los profesores responsables de su preparaci6n y con el Director de la Escuela Secun-
daria de Paraiso, Profesor Dubois Andrews. Son, parados, de izquierda a derecha: George Head-
ley, Leona Headley, Profesor Alcides Bernal, H. Cumberbatch, Profesor Andrews, Profesora
Doris Zambrano, Profesor Audley Webster, Emilio Sainten, Jose Albeo, entrenador Julio C.
Sinclair y Gardel Pomare. Agachados, en el mismo orden: Noel Pilgrim, Rigoberto Griffith,
Guillermo Griffith, Encarnaci6n Albeo y Juan F. Martinez. No aparece en la foto Ricardo Griffin.


Un excelente desempefio tuvieron los atle-
tas que representaron a Paraiso en los Pri-
meros Juegos Deportivos Nacionales para
impedidos fisicos y mentales, organizados
por el Instituto Panamefio de Habilitaci6n
Especial (IPHE). La representaci6n de Pa-
raiso, que se sum6 a la selecci6n de la Pro-
vincia de PanamA en las competencias pro-
vinciales, estuvo integrada por 12 unida-
des, 11 varones y 1 nifia.
La selecci6n de Paraiso, cuyo escaso noi-
mero se debi6 al poco tiempo con que se
cont6 para su preparaci6n, obtuvo 12 pre-
seas, 11 en atletismo y 1 en nataci6n.
Por Paraiso tuvo una sobresaliente ac-
tuaci6n George Headley quien obtuvo me-
dalla de oro en relevo 4 por 100 metros,
de plata en los 75 metros pianos, lanza-
miento de bala y del disco y en salto alto,
y la medalla de bronce en los 100 metros
pianos, para totalizar seis preseas. Su her-
mana Leona gan6 medalla de oro en lanza-
miento del disco y de plata en lanzamiento
de bala.
Emilio Sainten tuvo tambi6n una desta-
cada actuaci6n, al adjudicarse medallas de
oro en las competencias de lanzamiento de
bala y del disco. Pomare Gardel gan6 la
otra medalla de oro lograda por la repre-
sentaci6n de Paraiso, al triunfar en relevo
4 por 100.


Juan F. Martinez logr6 la solitaria meda-
Ila de plata en nataci6n, en la competencia
de 50 metros estilo espalda. Ricardo Griffin
contribuy6 con la causa de la Provincia de
PanamA, al ganar medalla de bronce en
lanzamiento de bala.
"A pesar de las limitaciones fisicas de los
j6venes de Paraiso, su desempeflo puede
considerarse de alta calidad en el nivel en
que se desempeilan", dijo el Profesor Alci-
des Bemal, de Educaci6n Fisica, al comen-
tar su rendimiento. Record que un egre-
sado de Educaci6n Especial en Paraiso lo-
gr6 el anio pasado una beca, como resul-
tado de su excelente desempefio en los
deportes.
Bernal afirma que algunas unidades de
Educaci6n Especial de Paraiso han logrado
descollar tanto en diversas ramas del de-
porte, que han llegado a representar a la
escuela en competencias intercolegiales.
Los atletas de Educaci6n Especial de Pa-
raiso participan en cuanta actividad recrea-
tiva y de deportes organizan los profesores
de los planteles primaries y secundarios. De
alli que logren un 6ptimo desarrollo de sus
facultades fisicas, cualidad que permitieron
lue los representantes de Paraiso lograran
in excelente desempefio en el torneo recien-
te, reservado para j6venes entire los 12 y
17 aiios con 6 meses.
