Divers Reminded

OF Recompression

Chamber Locations
The safety branch has issued a
reminder to all divers in the area
that recompression chambers are
available on both sides of the Isth-
mus for emergency use.
In case of a diving accident, the
Cristobal or Balboa Police should
be notified immediately and advised
of the details of the accident.
The patient should be taken im-
mediately to the nearest recompres-
sion chamber while first aid is being
administered.
The Atlantic side recompression
chamber is located on Salvage
Barge U.S. 208, docked at the sal-
vage depot and diving school adja-

Middle States Association

To Evaluate BHS Next Week


During the first week in February,
the special visiting committee from
the Secondary Commission of the
Middle States Association will con-
duct the decennial evaluation of
Balboa High School.
This will be the culmination of
months of preparation and planning
by the faculty and staff of the
school.
The first official function for the
committee will be the organizational
dinner on Monday, February 3,
which will also be attended by rep-
resentatives of faculty, students, ad-
ministration and community. This
will be at the Quarry Heights Offi-
cers' Club and will be followed im-
mediately by a report from the Bal-
boa High School committee on
"School and Community to be pre-
sented by Elkin Thompson. Shirley
Hazelden will follow with the com-
mittee report on "Philosophy and
Objectives."
The visiting committee will then
meet to set up the organization and
procedures for February 4, 5 and 6.
Classroom visits, observations, con-
ferences, inspections, reviews of
self-evaluations, and making reports
will consume some 18 hours a day
for the visiting committee.
The 22-member committee will
be headed by Archie Jordan, the
Assistant Superintendent for Per-
sonnel of the Ceasar Rodney School
District in Delaware. Serving as the
assistant chairman will be Maxie
Williams, Superintendent of the
Commonwealth High School in
Puerto Rico. Members of the com-
mittee from New York are Donald
Loughlin and Carol Emery and from
Pennsylvania there are Jane Gulick


and Walter Wronosky. John Schroe-
ber and John Dyck work in Amer-
ican schools in Colombia and Ma-
rian Czaja and Margarita Lancara
in Venezuela. Coming from schools
in Puerto Rico and the Virgin
Islands are Dixie Gillies, Candida
Gerardino, Nora Hillery, and Erma-
lee Grant.
The remainder of the committee
members are from the Canal Zone
schools and include Shirley Makib-
bin, Lawrence Cowley, Warren
Hedler, Charles Renno, Sharon
Shaw, Anne Gegg, DeWitt Myers,
and Janice Whitney.
On Thursday afternoon, the final
day of the evaluation, a brief oral
report will be given to the faculty
and administration. The compre-
hensive written report will be re-
ceived in approximately 4 months.

Woman Named

To Key Post

In Housing
Lyda Lobo, Housing Project Man-
ager, Southern District, has been
promoted to the position of Assist-
ant Housing Manager, Northern
District, and will assume her new
duties on Monday.
Born in Cali, Colombia, Miss
Lobo came to the Isthmus as a
young child with her parents. She
attended the Colegio Internacional
de Maria Inmaculada and received
a scholarship to study her senior
year of high school in the United
States. For the past 3 years, Miss
Lobo has been attending classes at
the University of Panama and will
receive her degree in Communica-
tions from the university in Decem-
ber of this year. As part of her stud-
ies, she attended two sessions with
the Federaci6n Centroamericana de
Agencies de Publicidad, one in Cos-
ta Rica and the other in El Salva-
dor, where the proprietors of ad-
vertising agencies met to discuss
advancements in advertising.
She joined the Panama Canal or-
ganization in October 1964 as a
clerk typist with the Community
Services Division and has been with
the division since that time. Over
the years, she has occupied positions
of increasing responsibility and in
1971 was promoted to Housing
Project Manager, with the respon-
sibility of all U.S. family housing
assignments.
In recognition of the outstanding
performance of her duties, Miss
Lobo was awarded a Quality Step
Increase in 1969, and in 1973 she
received a Special Achievement
Award. She has been an active par-
ticipant in the Supply and Commu-
nity Service Bureau Combined Fed-
eral Campaigns.
Currently, most of her spare time
is devoted to the preparation of her
university thesis, "Advertising in the
Socialist System," and when tine
permits, she enjoys reading, SCUBA
diving and traveling.


Car Inspected?
If you hurry you may not have to
wait long to get your car inspected.
The Motor Transportation Divi-
sion reports that annual inspections
are moving slowly and urges motor-
ists not to wait until the February 28
deadline approaches to have their
cars inspected.
Inspection stations at Ancon and
Cristobal are open Monday through
Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
As of January 27, only 4,458 cars
had been inspected.


An experiment now being con-
ducted at the Miraflores Generating
Station could result in saving money
in the cost of fuel used to generate
electricity by the Canal organiza-
tion.
Though it is still to early to say
how successful the program will be,
those working on the project are
hopeful that the outcome will have
a favorable impact on the cost of
power.
Basically, the experiment involves
the use of relatively cheap residual
fuel oil, syrupy black bunker C, in
place of distillate fuel diesel in one
of the two 10-megawatt gas tur-
bines. At present prices, bunker C
costs about $3 per barrel less than
diesel, a difference that takes on
great significance taking into ac-
count that each turbine uses several
hundred barrels of fuel a day.
Any savings would be reduced
slightly by additional expenses re-
lated to increased operating and
maintenance cost in the burning of
residual fuel in the combustion
turbines.
The experiment at Miraflores,
which went into effect earlier this
month, is the first of this type in
Central America. It is being done in
other parts of the world to some
degree and it may become more
common due to the impact of rising
fuel costs on the economics of elec-
trical energy production.
An attempt to burn residual fuel
in gas turbines was made by the
Electrical Division's Power Branch
in the early 1960s but it was shelved,
partly because instruments needed
to make it work had not yet been
fully developed. Also, 10 years ago
the cost of fuel was not an issue.
Before the bunker C can be used
in the gas turbine, it must be treated
to prevent damaging the turbine
blades. A highly sensitive machine,
not available at the time of the ex-
periment in the 1960s, analyzes
traces of metallic elements in the
bunker C which can cause corrosion



.1 2


deposits on the turbine blades at
the extremely high operating tem-
peratures they are subjected to.
The" machine being leased from
the manufacturer is a Baird-Atomic
fuel analysis spectrometer, which
requires only 45 seconds to give a
readout in terms of parts per million
of corrosive elements.
Treatment of the fuel includes the
injection of an additive, magnesium,
to inhibit the corrosive character-
istics of vanadium, one of the un-
wanted elements.
Two other corrosive elements,
potassium and sodium, are removed
by mixing the fuel with water and
later separating them in centrifugal
separators.
A factory representative came to
the Isthmus for 8 days from the
Baird-Atomic office in Bedford,
Mass., to install the spectrometer
and to teach Canal personnel its
operation and maintenance.
From time to time the turbine
will be shutdown and the blades
and other parts examined for signs
of corrosion and other damage.
The findings will be included in
an evaluation report to be prepared
by Power Branch personnel who
will oversee the results of the ex-
periment. They are Kurt F. Men-
zel, Jr., project engineer, and en-
gineering technicians Ralph Hen-
derson, Les Rinehart, Hugo Adams,
and Charles Vowell.
This group also was responsible
for getting the experiment into op-
eration. After the initial work was
finished, the experiment was turned
over to the operating personnel, who
will carry out the next phase.
Sharing much of the operational
responsibilities are shift foremen
Paul Kramer, John Sholund, Al
Wanner, Ray Larson, Bill Pierson
and Bob Holland. Norman Ander-
son is Superintendent of the Power
Branch, Southern District, and has
worked with the gas turbines since
1963. His long experience is vital to
the project.


Installation for treatment of residual fuel is checked by machinists Robert
Thrift and Clark Bristol, who installed the equipment at the Miraflores
Generating Station.

Leash Law

Was Effective

On January 17
Canal Zone residents are re-
minded of the "leash law," the re-
cent amendment to Canal Zone
regulations that went into effect
January 17, prohibiting dogs or wild
animals kept as pets to run at large.
An animal is at large when it is
not directly under voice or signal
command of a competent person;
on a leash held by a person ccom-
petent of managing the animal;
effectively confined; or under other
effective restraint.
Regulations now in effect perlnit
untagged dogs and cats over 4
mouths old to he seized and im-
pounded, and require that female
dogs and cats he confined in the
owner's or custodian's quarters or
in a supervised kennel while in heat.
The penalty for violations of the
law is a fine of not more than $100
or imprisonment for not more than
30 days, or both.
Canal Zone residents are urged
to read the full text of the amend-
ments published the past Decem-
her 15.
The cost of annual registration of
domestic animals will he increased
from $2 to $5 to recover the cost of
enforcing the new amendments.

Do Dishes Once a Day

And Save Electricity
Your electric dishwasher is one of
your biggest work savers and time
savers. It can be a cost saver, too.
Run your dishwasher only once
a day. Stack dishes from breakfast,
lunch and dinner until you have a
full load. This not only saves elec-
tricity, water and money, but time
as well.
Measure detergent carefully. Too
much or too little can reduce your
dishwasher's efficiency and can
cause poor results.
If the appliance fails to operate,
refer first to your instruction book-
let. The problem may be a simple
one and save you a service call.

I All Employees

1 For CFC Help

-l . Employees of the Canal organiza-
.ion and other Federal agencies on
the Isthmus were commended for
their generosity by Gov. David S.
! , u Parker recently in the 1975 Com-
li ned Federal Campaign final re-
Slort.
Addressed to bureau directors,
I '- heads of independent units and bu-
reau CFC chair persons, the report
referred to area reports of the cam-
paign which "confinn, statistically
. the generosity of Company-Govern-
ment employees and those employ-
t ees of other Federal agencies on tie
Isthmus." Governor Parker noted
-the close correlation between the
average gift and per capital gift,
which was approximately on a one
to one basis and a "key indicator to
the success of the campaign in the
Company-CGovernment."
The report stated that 97.7 per-
cent of Canal employees contri-
eeds will go to provide scholarships to buted to the campaign and 94.6 per-

Personal Mark Can Help


Find Your Stolen Goods


During the month of January,
26 bicycles were reported stolen, ac-
cording to the Canal Zone Police Di-
vision. Many times, when personal
property is reported stolen, the
owner is unable to remember the
brand name or serial number of the
article stolen. In an effort to aid in
the possible recovery of stolen prop-
erty, the Canal Zone Police list the
following suggestions:
a. Engrave or mark all valuable
possessions with a unique identify-
ing mark, such as a social security
or IP number.
b. Make a record of items marked
and place the list in a secure place,
possibly with other valuable per-
sonal papers. The detailed record
should include the brand name of
the item, the serial number, the
model number, the date of purchase
and the cost of the item.
Many of the new wheeled vehi-
cles for children do not carry a serial
number. Most retail outlets supply
the same brand name bicycles in the
same styles and colors. When a
child's bicycle is stolen, often times
it is hard to locate any identifiable
difference between two bicycles.
The use of reflective tape is a good
safety measure, and also a good
means of identifying a particular bi-
cycle as the tape is difficult to re-
move without damaging the paint
or scratching the metal of the frame.
The above steps will help the
police should the bicycle be stolen.
However, a strong lock and chain


will help prevent the theft when a
bicycle is left unattended at schools,
swimming pools, or in the carports.
The marking of electrical tools,
appliances, radios, television sets,
cameras and other personal items is
also recommended.


HS Equivalency

Tests Offered

An opportunity for anyone who
has not completed high school to
take the General Educational De-
velopment (GED) tests will again
be provided by the Canal Zone Col-
lege. Passing of the five GED tests

equivalency certificate, or, if not for
a certificate, for entry into many col-
leges and universities of the United
States.
Testing will be held on February
27, 28, March 1 and 3. The tests will
commence at 6:30 p.m. on February
27, 28 and March 3, and at 8 a.m.
on March 1. One test is given during
each of the evening periods and two
are given on Saturday.
One may register for these tests
at the Canal Zone College office,
Monday through Thursday, from
7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is a
registration fee of $7.50. For addi-
tional information, call 52-3304 or

The Panama Canal, like a com-
mercial enterprise, is subject to fluc-
tuations in business activity, par-
ticularly those related to interna-
tional trade. And the present reces-
sion is no exception.
But, thanks to a few critical fac-
tors, the Canal does possess a "re-
cession-resistent" characteristic that
can cushion the slumps and layoffs,
according to economist Donald (.
Schmidt of the Executive Planning
Stalf.

Since the end of World War II,
there have been a number of re-
cessions of various degrees of inten-
sity and duration. Their impact on
Canal operations has been well doc-
umented and tends to fall into a pat-
tern. The current recession is more
widespread and of longer duration
than usual but in Schmidt's opinion
it is not significantly different in its
effects from its predecessors.
The typical recession is accom-
panied by a sharp decline in cargo
movement through the Canal with
a far more moderate falloff in tran-
sits and little or no decline in Pan-
ama Canal net tons, which are the
basic unit of measurement for tolls.
The effect of a recession on Canal
revenue depends on the degree of
the slump and the duration.
The recession of 1963 provides a
good example of a recession's effects.
In 1963, cargo moving through the

Omission Corrected

Postal Division failed to mention
that these stamps, 1-cent, 10-cent
and 25-cent ordinary stamps are of
the current permanent series and are
being issued in coil form for use in
stamp vending machines. They will
be placed on sale February 14 at the
Balboa Post Office.
The new stamp vending machines
will be placed in operation at the
Ba'boa and Cristobal post offices on
February 18.

Aquarists to Meet
The Canal Zone Aquarium Soci-
ety's monthly meeting will take
place on February 3 at 7:30 p.m. at
the Panama Canal Training Center.
Dr. Phillip V. Akers will present a
program, "Recognition of Salt Water
Fish," a slide presentation with an
optional quiz.
Newly elected officers will be
presented. They are: president Rob-
ert Daisey, vice president Richard
Frank, secretary Barbara Frank,
treasurer John McLelland, publicist
Sue Martin, storekeeper Russell
Isaac. Phone 87-5244 for more in-
formation.


Canal dropped by 7.8 percent from
the previous year, transit declined
by only 1.2 percent while Panama
Canal net tons and tolls decreased
approximately 1.5 percent in that
year. During the brief recession of
fiscal 1972, tolls actually rose while
cargo and transits dropped off.
Why does cargo movement de-
cline faster than transits? First,
many Canal transits continue on
schedule regularly even if they are
more lightly laden. The second rea-
son is the still competition in the
tramp cargo trade, which serves to
apportion available cargo among the
bidders for its haulage. Another fac-
tor is the trend toward larger ships
evidenced here since the 1950s.
Though fewer ships may transit,
they are larger and pay higher tolls.
Aside from 1963, the only year that
showed a decline in Canal commer-
cial tolls since World War II was
1951, when they dropped 2.3 per-
cent.
For the first 6 months of fiscal
1975, tolls, Panama Canal tonnage
and cargo were all up from the year
before while transits dipped slightly.
Tolls revenue was $71.4 million, up
from $59.3 million, cargo tonnage
was up from 72.5 million long tons
in 1974 to 73.6 million for the first


For the first time since it was
formed in July of 1974, the Gov-
ernor's Advisory Committee on Edu-
cation has scheduled public meet-
ings. There will be two such meet-
ings in February; one at Howard
AFB Theater on Tuesday, February
4, and the other at the Fort Davis
Elementary School on Wednesday,
February 5. Both meetings will
begin at 7 p.m.
After studying the teacher and
parent surveys on the proposed
straight-through elementary school
day at their January 14 and 28 meet-


half of this year and Panama Canal
net tonnage went from 67.4 million
to 68.1 million. Oceangoing transits
dropped from 7,073, or 38.4 per day
to 6,865, or 37.3 per day, largely
due to ship size.
In viewing the revenue figure,
however, one must take into con-
sideration the fact that this year's
tolls figure includes a 20 percent
increase which went into effect in
July 1974.
As to the present recession, can
things get worse than they are now?
They certainly can, but the consen-
sus is that they are not likely to get
much worse than they are right now,
according to Schmidt. What is the
outlook for Canal revenue this
year? The current fiscal year's tolls
revenue forecast was estimated at
$146.6 million, up from $121.3
million last year. To date, the fore-
cast remains virtually on target,
taking into consideration some non-
recession related and probably short
term weaknesses that are devel-
oping.
The Panama Canal pattern may
be viewed with cautious optimism
by employees. In any economic en-
tity, there are ups and downs but
the effects here of declines through
the years have been relatively mild.


ings, the committee decided to hold
the meetings with the parents along
the lines of a hearing.
Invited to attend the meetings are
parents of children in Cocoli, How-
ard, and Kobbe schools on the
fourth, and Davis and Gulick schools
on the fifth of February.
A presentation of the proposal
will be made followed by an allotted
time for parents favoring and op-
posing it to present their views.
There will be an opportunity to ask
the committee questions about the
proposal.

Ya esttl en vias de soluci6n el
problema de la irritante demora en
lograr el tono, al hacer llamadas en
Balboa, fen6meno que se present
con bastante frecuencia. En febre-
ro se iniciarl la instalaci6n de equi-
po telefOnico en la Central de Tel6-
fonos de Balboa, a fin de aliviar esta
situaci6n: Se espera (ue est6 list
para fines de abril.
En marzo de 1972, el Ramo de
Comunicaciones de la Divisi6n de
Electricidad de la empresa del
Canal de Panami llev6 a cabo un
studio sobre el volume de llama-
das, cl cual indic6 que el nrunero
de Ilamadas procesadas por la Cen-
tral de Balboa excederia en 1975 la
capacidad contemplada en el diseiio
del sistema. Inmediatamente se or-
den6 equipo adicional y se progra-
m6 ]a instalaci6n en marzo de 1974.


Sin embargo, debido a demoras en
la fabricaci6n, el embarque ultimo
del equipo no pudo ser entregado
sino hasta hace poco.
Despu6s de haber sido inaugura-
da la Central de Balboa, 6sta aten-
dia un promedio de 107,000 llama-
das diarias durante la 6poca de mis
movimiento. Este promedio ha
aumentado ahora a 126,000 llama-
das, excedienlo los limits del sis-
tema. Aproximadamente un 75 por
ciento de esas llamadas se efectbian
entire las 9 a.m. y 4 p.m.
El aumento tan dramatic se
atribuve a varies factors: la expan-
si6n del sistema de tel6fonos de Pa-
nama, el aumento en el nulmero de
lines administrativas de la empresa
del Canal v el incremento en la uti-
lizaci6n del tel6fono para conservar
combustible.
Las demoras en el tono ocurren
cuando el numero de personas (tue
tratan de efectuar Ilamadas simul-
tAneamente es mayor quc las que
puede tender la Central. Cuando
sc produce esta sitiacion, la line de
la persona que levanta el auricular
para hacer una llamada pasa a un
patron de espera, hasta que el exce-
so de Ilamadas pendientes ha) a sido
eliminado.
Para aliviar el sistema sobrecar-
gado hasta que el nuevo equipo sea
instalado, cl Ramo de Comunicacio-
ncs sugiere:
1. Cuando se encuentre con una
demora en el tono, cuelgue despu6s
de 10 segundos y espere unos minu-
tos antes de volver a tratar. El nil-
mero de Ilamadas esta en su miixi-
mo esporaidicamento y las demoras
son, por lo regular, de corta dura-
cidn. El mantener la line abierta
s6lo sirve para sobrecargar a6n mis
el sistema, en perjuicio de los demais
usuarios.
2. Antes do iniciar una Ilamada
telef6nica, verifique el ncimero con-
sultando cl Dircctorio de 1975. Si
marca raipidamnente reduce el tiem-
po que penranecec l etquipo sobre-

Durante el mes de enero se han
reportado 26 bicicletas robadas a la
Division de Policia de la Zona del

do se informa sobre el robo de un
articulo el denunciante no recuerda
la marca o el nfimero de series del
articulo hurtado. La Policia de la
Zona del Canal hace las siguientes
recomendaciones, para facilitar la
possible recuperaci6n de articulos
robados:
-Marque o grabe todos los ar-
ticulos valiosos con un n6mero o se-
rial apropiados que permit su facil
identificaci6n. Marque el ndmero de
seguro social o de la tarjeta de iden-
tificaci6n.
-Haga una lista de los articulos
y col6quela en lugar seguro, posi-
blemente con otros papeles persona-
les de valor. La lista debe incluir la
marca del articulo, el n6mero de
series, la fecha de compra y su precio.

De Melodaires
Una carta de reconocimiento por
su excelente presentaci6n durante el
servicio en memorial de Martin Lu-
ther King, Jr., efectuado el pasado
12 de enero en el Teatro de Fuerte
Clayton ante una numerosa concu-
rrencia, ha enviado el Coronel Rob-
ert A. McDade, Director de Activi-
dades Comunales y de Personal del
Ej6rcito, en Fuerte Amador, al Sub-
gerente de los Cleff Melodaires,
Stanley Hall.
McDade destaca el esfuerzo com-
binado y el aporte personal de los
miembros del coro, factors que
"contribuyeron enormemente al 6xi-
to de este proyecto sobre Objetivos
Humanos desarrollado por la 193ma.
Brigada de Infanteria, para fomen-
tar la armonia racial y cultural entire
las comunidades de la Repiblica de
Panama y la Zona del Canal, asi
como para rendir tribute a un esti-
mado ciudadano Americano y del
mundo".
El Coronel McDade hace referen-
cia a los elogios que escuch6 de los
presents en el acto en honor a Lu-
ther King, en torno a las interpreta-
clones hechas por el coro de los
"Cleff Melodaires". Especial men-
ci6n hace de la interpretaci6n de
"Steal Away", que serA recordado
como uno de los aspectss sobresa-
lientes de esta tan especial ocasi6n".
"Estoy orgulloso y sumamente
complacido de agradecer a los Cleff
Melodaires a nombre del comando
por tan sobresaliente contribuci6n y
servicio .. ." dice.

Al Istmo Dos

Clubes de EE.UU.
Una agrupaci6n de residents pa-
namefos de la Costa Oeste de los
Estados Unidos ha anunciado que
harA una excursion al Istmo, a fin de
participar en las pr6ximas festivida-
des del Carnaval, que este afio se
efectuarin del 8 al 11 de febrero.
El Club Urraca, que se suma asi
a otra agrupaci6n de panameios re-
sidentes en los Estados Unidos-el
Club Pabsco-que viajarA a Panamai
en ocasi6n de los carnavales, sera
encabezado por la Reina, Srta. Shar-
lene Mosley.
En virtud de que este ano los Car-
navales no tienen el auspicio official
por haber anunciado el Gobierno
una series de medidas de austeridad,
entire las que figure la abstenci6n de
destinar recursos para financial acti-
vidades de las fiestas de Momo,
"Los Ejecutivos" de Col6n han he-
cho los arreglos para celebrar los
Carnavales con los visitantes.
"Los Ejecutivos" adelantan los
preparativos para que la Srta. Mos-
ley reine durante las festividades del
Carnaval, conjuntamente con los in-
tegrantes del Club Pabsco y el Club
Urraca.
El event principal serai un baile
de gala en honor a la Srta. Mosley,
durante el cual sera coronada como
la Reina Pabsco-UrracA. El festival
tendra lugar el sibado de Carnaval,
a partir de las 9 p.m. en el Club
NAutico Caribe, y serti amenizado
por la Orquesta de Willie Moro.
La excursion del club de residen-
tes de la Costa Oeste de los Estados
Unidos, el cual tiene su sede en Los
Angeles, California, ha sido alenta-
da por el Club Pabsco, que todos los
anos recientes ha estado organizan-
do excursions a PanamA durante los
Carnavales.
La iniciativa del Club Pabsco ha
dado como resultado un creciente

Orlando de Jesis Barrios ha teni-
do en estos dias plenos motives para
sentirse orgulloso y satisfecho de un
acto de profundo sentido human
que lo condujo cl 17 de septiembre
de 1974, a salvar la vida a un recien
nacido.
Barrios recibih cl Certificado de
Premio por Servicios Especiales, un
cheque por $300 y la medalla de
oro y el certificado respective que
otorga el Conscjo Interamericano
de Seguridad por actos de esta na-
turaleza. Por afiadidura, el Capitin
Donald Dertien, Director de Mari-
na, comiiinic6 al Comandante del
Cuerpo de Bomberos de Col6n, Co-
ronel Thomas J. Butler, del premio
a que se habia hecho merecedor Ba-
rrios, quien atribuy6 su procza a las
ensefianzas que recibi6 por 5 afios
como bomlbero voluntario en Col6n.
El incident que motive los pre-
mios que acaba de recibir Barrios
ocurriO en la noche del 17 de sep-
tiemlre, cuando una jovcn de 13
afios de edad vecina de Barrios se
acerco a so casa a pedirle (que la
ayudara a llegar al Centro de Salud
de Sabanitas, pues estaba pr6xima
a dar a luz.


Barrios, quicn reside en Catun-
cillo, a orillas de la Transistmica,
con su esposa y un hijo, no lo penso
dos veces, y rApidamente se prepare
para acompaniar a la joven. Camin6
con 6sta hasta la Transistmica, en
el sector conocido como Curva de
la Muerte, pero faltando escasos
minutes para las 12 p.m., se percat6
de que el nacimiento del bebe se
produciria cn pocos minutes.
Al aire libre Barrios prepare a la
joven para cl alumbramiento. El
bhcb naci6, pero al instant dcj( de
Ilorar y no sc percibia respiraci6n,
mientras (que so cuerpecito parecia
perder vida. "Entonccs rccord6 las
classes de respiraci6n artificial que
aprendi como bombero voluntario
por 5 afios", explic6 Barrios.
Al comprobar que el reci6n naci-
do respiraba por su propia cuenta,
Barrios decildi dejar de aplicarle
respiraci6n artificial, y permaneci6 a
orillas de la carretera con el pe(ue--
no en los brazos, hasta que pas6 un
automovil y su conductor accedi6
a llevarlos a Sabanitas.
En esta filtima etapa de su odi-


sea colabor6 un estudiante de la
Universidad de Panama, recuerda
Barrios, quien tiene frases de reco-
nocimiento por esta ayuda.
En Sabanitas, tanto el beb6 como
la madre fueron declarados en buen
cstado, regresando entonces Barrios
a su casa, avanzada la madrugada,
para prepararse y volver al trabajo.
Asi lo hizo, y a la hora en punto se
hallaba cumpliendo con sus debe-
res para con la empresa del Canal.
Al recibir ahora los premios a que
sc hizo merecedor por su espont;i-
neo gesto de solidaridad humana,
Barrios volviO a revivir la satisfac-
ci6n que tuvo en aquella ocasi6n
al saler que habia conthibuido a
salvar la vida de un beb6.
El Certificado por Actos Especia-
les le fue entregado por el Capitin
Donald Dertien, Director de Mari-
na, y el cheque por el Superinten-
d(ntc del Ramo del Atlintico de la
Division de Esclusas, R. J. Daniel-
sen. Por su parte Jos1 R. Maravilla,
Director de Seguridad le comunic6
que el Consejo Interamericano de
Seguridad aprob6 concederle la
Medalla de Oro v un Certificado.
