Zone Sets 18-Month

Malaria-Free Record

There has not been a case of
malaria in the Canal Zone since
August 1973, and with each ma-
laria-free month that passes a new
chapter is written in Canal Zone
The current figure of 18 months
without a case of malaria was un-
dreamed of when Dr. William
Crawford Gorgas, the Canal's first
Sanitation Officer, initiated a mos-
quito control program on the
Isthmus in 1906.
James P. MacLaren, the present
chief of the Health Bureau's Divi-
sion of Sanitation, attributes the

Governor's Review

Has Been Postponed
The departure review for Canal
Zone Gov. David S. Parker, which
U.S. Southern Command had sched-
uled for today at Albrook Army Air
Field, has been postponed as Gov-
ernor Parker left for Washington
this Wednesday for official dis-
cussions and medical consultations.

Completion of the recent chamber
work in connection with the miter
gate overhaul at Pedro Miguel
Locks within the Four-Day Over-
haul Concept required many men
to perform many essential jobs at
the same time. In the photograph
above, as workmen ascend from
the bottom of the chamber to the
top of the lock wall, they install
and then aline the new miter gate
hollow quoin plates which are the
seals between the gate and the
wall. Before the replacement work
began, an improved blasting tech-
nique was used to remove the worn
plates which helped make it pos-
sible to complete the overhaul
within the scheduled time frame.
In the photograph at right, work-
men on the chamber floor dewater
lateral culverts so inspectors can
determine structural soundness and
the degree of repair required.

New Economist Named

To Executive Planning

Edgar E. Rojas recently became
the first Panamanian to fill the posi-
tion as an economist on the Execu-
tive Planning Staff of the Canal
"It's an honor," says Rojas, to
be chosen as the first Panamanian
to hold the position. "I will try to
do the job the best I can."
Rojas holds a master's degree in
economics from the State Univer-
sity of New York at Buffalo, where
he also obtained his bachelor's de-
gree in 1971. When he returned to
the Isthmus about 6 weeks ago
after an absence of more than 5
years, he had completed 2 years of
study toward his doctorate.
Shortly after returning, he saw
the announcement of an opening
for an economist on the Executive

Planning Staff and submitted his
application. This is his first work-
ing experience as a professional
Rojas, a native of Panama City,
attended primary and secondary
school at the Colegio Javier, grad-
uating in 1966. Shortly thereafter
he traveled to Washington, D.C.,
to study English at the Interna-
tional Center for Language Study.
Eight months later, he entered
the School of Economics of the
State University of New York.
While at Buffalo, he served as
president of the Foreign Students'
Association, which had a member-
ship of about a thousand students.
As such, he coordinated activities
of the foreign students' clubs at

current record-shattering statistics
to the Division's labor gangs who
clean and maintain more than 500
miles of drainage around townsites
each year as well as a continual
program for finding mosquito sour-
ces by larvae hunters.
Doctor Bedford H. Berrey, the
Canal Zone Government Health
Director, shares MacLaren's pride
in the accomplishment of the mos-
quito control endeavor. Dr. Berrey
always refers to the employees of
the Sanitation Division as the "un-
sung heroes" of the Health Bureau
team. Without their assistance the
area would be a less pleasant place
to live and work.
The 18-month malaria-free figure
includes Canal employees living in
the Zone as well as. those who live
in the Republic of Panama but re-
ceive treatment at Canal Zone med-
ical facilities.
The longest malaria-free period
previously recorded was 2 months.
This occurred twice during 1973-
June-July and November-Decem-
ber. Month long periods without
malaria have been recorded in the
Canal Zone three times before: in
March and September 1971, and
October 1970.
During the past 12 years, the
highest number of malaria cases
recorded in a given year was 141
in 1969. The lowest was 11 in 1973.
The ratio has been one case for
each 1,000 employees with an aver-
age workforce of 15,500.
In 1906, at the height of the
Canal construction period, the ad-
mission rate for malaria was 821
cases per 1,000 employees and the
total workforce was about 26,500.
Gorgas is credited with having
reduced the incidence of malaria
to 30 cases per 1,000 employees
before he left the area in 1914.
From 1914 to 1960, the annual
malaria rate has fluctuated between
30 and 6 cases per 1,000 employees.
Dr. Gorgas organized his control
endeavors into districts, one for
each of the original 24 Canal Zone
townsites, with a sanitary inspector
in charge. The sanitary inspector
was provided a force of 20 to 100
laborers, with assistants and fore-
men as necessary, depending upon
the area, to eliminate mosquito
sources. Techniques for the clean-
ing and maintenance of drainages
were developed. Solutions of larvi-
cides and screening techniques were
used and in the early days, laborers
were paid 10 cents an hour for
catching mosquitoes by hand in
sleeping quarters. Later, more effi-
cient mosquito traps were de-
The methods and techniques de-
veloped by Dr. Gorgas for mosquito
control have continued since Canal
construction days. Today, Mac-
Laren, with his inspectors, super-
vises the cleaning of drainage
ditches surrounding 15 Canal Zone
townsites and Canal facilities. Em-
ployees of the division make daily
inspections and apply approved
larvicides to bodies of water which
cannot be drained, filled or other-
wise eliminated. Maintenance and
control of the environment is a
continuing activity in the Canal
Zone with the control of ground
sources of mosquitos given priority
in 50 square miles of sanitated areas
around townsites. Sanitation coun-

Tea Is Planned

For Benefit of

Hogar Atlantico
The annual benefit tea to support
Ilogar Atlintico of Colon will be
held from 3 to 5 p.m., tomorrow,
at the home of Mrs. Raphael
deBoyrie, Roosevelt Avenue be-
tween 7th and 8th streets in Colon.
The annual tea is one function
that has become a social must on
the Atlantic side as well as one of
the main sources of income to main-
tain the home for the nearly 30 res-
idents there. In 1964, Sir Edgar
Vaughn, former British ambassador
in Panama, prompted by the plight
of destitute individuals, enlisted
the support of interested local
ministers and religious workers to
provide services to folks of West
Indian origin remaining from the
Canal construction days. As the
generation of "original canalers" is
passing, the home is taking in
others who have no place to live
or source of income.
The governments of Jamaica,
Barbados as well as the Republic
of Panama contribute toward the
operation of the home which is
owned and operated by the At-
lantic Religious Workers Associa-
There is no admission fee for
the tea, but donations are grate-
fully accepted at the door.
Those unable to attend the tea
but wishing to make a contribution
to Hlogar Atlantico may do so by
mailing a check or money order to

tobal, C.Z.

Curundu Bottle Club

To Hold Bottle Sale
The Curundu Junior Iligh School
Bottle Club will hold a bottle sale
from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., tomorrow,

Bottle Club members will he
selling the rare "man" and "dog"
bottles from the Canal Zone. The
sale will also feature many of the
following types of bottles: inks,
medicines, perfumes, old sodas,
beers, miniatures and many differ-
ent types of liquor bottles.

shortly before his retirement in
June 1972, and Community Serv-
ice:s Division personnel completed
the task.
Living up to its subtitle, "A Do
It Yourself Tour of Fifty Interest-
ing Plants," the pamphlet identifies
selected plants by number (corre-
sponding numbers appear on the
plants themselves) and provides a
map showing their locations. The
tour begins at the main office and
proceeds toward the Lily Pond,
since the heaviest concentration of
plants is in this area.
As the introduction to the pam-
phlet says, "Summit Gardens in a
Nutshell" was written "to provide
a much needed guide for the aver-
age person interested in Summit
and its collection of tropical plants
from various parts of the world."
It gives the scientific and popular
names of each plant, together with
its place of origin and information
about its unusual characteristics,
uses, manner of growth and pro-
pagation, and flowering.
It says, for example, that Agave
sisalana, the "sisal" plant, produces
a single flower 25 to 30 feet high
which develops bulbs rather than
seeds-and then the plant dies. The
reader also learns that fibers from
the leaves of this cactus-like plant
are used commercially to manufac-
ture twine, cord and rope, and
locally they are used to make the
familiar chAcara shoulder bag and
other items.
Summit Gardens were estab-
lished in 1923 to introduce, propa-
gate and disseminate ornamentals
and other desirable plants for this
area. Since then, more than 15,000
species have been introduced, many
thousands of which have flourished
and added their beauty or products
to this part of the world.
Besides providing plants and
shrubs to landscape Canal Zone
communities, the gardens attract
more than 70,000 visitors annually.
Several inviting picnic areas have
been created, with tables, barbecue
pits and a playground for children.
Canal Zone organizations can
reserve an area for a group picnic
on weekends or holidays by writing
the Chief, Community Services Di-
vision, Drawer S, Balboa Heights,
at least 7 days in advance. Other-
wise, the picnic sites are available
on a "first come, first served" basis.
The next time you visit Summit
Gardens to picnic or to enjoy the
zoo and the beauty of the gardens
themselves, you can add to your
pleasure by taking yourself on a
tour with a copy of "Summit Gar-
dens in a Nutshell," available for
,10 cents at the gardens and at the
nursery sales' outlets at Mount Hope
and Diablo Heights.

Rojas feels that the study of
economics has had a marked effect
on his maturity and his pragmatic
view of life. "Economics," he says,
"is a science of which the average
person ought to have some knowl-

his life and to learn, for example,
that natural resources are limited
and must be exploited rationally."
He says a person should plan his
life rationally and in accordance

No Ha Habido Malaria en 18 Meses

Desde agosto de 1973 no se ha
presentado un s61o caso de malaria
en la Zona del Canal v, con cada
mes que pasa sin que se presented
casos de malaria, sc van escribien-
do nuevos capitulos en la historic
sanitaria de esta Area, vital para el
comercio international.
La marca actual, de 18 meses sin
casos de malaria, fue algo que ja-
mits sofi( la poblaciin actual cn los
tiempos en que el Dr. William
Crawford Gorgas, primer Funcio-
nario de Sanidad del Canal, inici6
en 1906 el program de la lucha
contra los mosquitos.
James P. Macelaren, Jefe actual
de la Divisiin de Sanidad, atribuye
las estadisticas iiiplantadoras de
marcas de hoy a las cuadrillas de
tral)ajadores de la division, que

limpian y manticncn en buen esta-
do cada afo mas de 500 millas de
zanjas de drenaje alrededor de las
poblaciones, a la vez que Ilevan a
cabo un program permanent de
busqueda de criaderos de nmosqui-
tos, labor rcalizada por los cazado-
res de larvas.
El Dr. Bedford H. Berrey, Direc-
tor de Salubridad del Gobierno de
la Zona del Canal, compare la sa-
tisfacci6n de MacLaren por los lo-
gros de la lucha contra los mosqui-
tos. El Dr. Berrey se refiere ade-
mn'is a los empleados de la Divisi6n
de Sanidad como a los heroess an6-
nimos" del equipo de la Dirccci6n
de Salubridad. Sin su ayuda, el Ist-
mo sclria un lu gar muicho mcnos

La marca de 18 meses libres de

malaria incluye a los empleados del
Canal que viven en la Zona, al
igual que los que resident en la Re-

uso mais efectivo de su homo:
Trate de hornear varias cosas al
mismo tiempo. El poner utn pastel
ell el horno al mismo tiempo que
retire un asado, sirve para conser-
var cl calor. Tambi6n trate de pla-
near sus comidas de manera que
piceda acomodar en el horno various
plates a la vez. Llene siempre el
horno a capacidad. Asi ahorrarA
tiempo y electricidad.
Mientras hornee, tenga cerrada
la puerta del horno. Ponga el me-
didor de tiempo para hornear. Con
ello se acordari de la hora en que
debe apagar el horno. Para hornear
mejor y mais ripidamente adquiera
el habito de no estar mirando.
Los alimentos que se pueden po-
ner en el horno no tienen que asar-
sc a la misma temperature exacta-
mente. Una diferencia de 25 gra-
dos produce resultados excelentes.
El calentar a la tempertaura
exacta con anterioridad se reco-
mnienda para comidas que se coci-
nan en menos de 1 hora. Las que
necesitan mcas cocimiento se pue-
den colocar en un horno frio.
