Vol. XIII, No. 46

Total $236.9 Million



Payments to Panama


Rise Again in 1974


Gross payments to Panama from
the Canal Zone set a new high of
$236.9 million during the past
calendar year and showed a 26.4
percent increase from the previous
year.
The increase is reflected mostly
in the purchases of goods in Pan-
ama by private organizations oper-
ating in the Canal Zone, which
amounted to $8.9 million in 1973
and rose to $40 million in 1974.
This includes purchases of petro-
leum that went from $2.4 million
in 1973 to $33.5 million in 1974,
according to official figures issued
by the Panama Controllers Office.
The increase in payments also
takes a 7.2 percent increase in
wages and salaries paid to Pan-
amanians living in Panama but em-
ployed in the Canal Zone by
United States agencies, contractors,
and private organizations such as
shipping agencies, clubs, churches,
oil companies, banks and employee
associations.
Other significant increases inr
gross payments to Panama are the
results of disability and relief pay-
ments and retirement checks to
Panamanians by the Panama Canal
organization and other U.S. Gov-
ernment agencies, which increased
from $9.8 million in 1973 to $12
million in 1974.


Engineers Meet

To End Today

At C.Z. College
The Panama Section of the Ins-
titute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) is conducting a
2-day seminar on "Engineering
Economics."
The. seminar, which is being
held at Canal Zone College, began

this afternoon.
This joint effort coordinated by
the Panama Section of the IEEE
with the Westinghouse Electric
Corp. is designed for electrical en-
gineers working in the design or
operation of power systems.
The seminar is part of IEEE's
continuing education program to
introduce advanced technology to
engineers and craftsmen working
in this field.
The course is being presented in
English by IEEE members experi-
enced in this engineering field.
Instructors are Everette E.
Chartier, P.E., Senior Engineer,
Arizona Public Service Co.; Rich-

Death Benefit Assn. to Meet
The Panama Canal Employees'
Death Benefit Association will hold
a meeting of the board of direc-
tors and the general membership
at 9:30 a.m., May 18, at the main
office, Building 424-A (Ancon
Laundry Annex), Ancon.


Also included are direct pur-
chases in Panama by United States
Government agencies, contractors'
purchases in Panama of goods and
services for Canal Zone projects
and expenditures made in Panama
by residents of the Canal Zone, all
accounting for increases in income
flow to the Republic of Panama
from the Canal Zone.
The total figure 'includes the
Panama Canal annuity paid to Pan-
ama by the United States which
was increased from $2 million to
$2.3 million in 1974 because it is
linked to the official price of gold
which was increased due to the
devaluation of the U.S. dollar.
Following is a breakdown of
payments:

$90,026 $96,518
"There are a great many people
9,800 12,067 in high places attentive to your
needs and interests," the Honor-
28,608 36,426 able Victor V. Veysey, Assistant
21,656 28,553 Secretary of the Army (Civil
6,952 7,893 Works), told a gathering of U.S.
and Latin American civic council
8,970 40,084 members last week.
2,470 33,504 Veysey was in the Canal Zone
6,500 6,500 for the second time since Secretary
of the Army Howard H. Callaway
8,955 9,238 assigned him certain Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
39,036 40,331 oversight responsibilities in March.
$185,395 $234,584 He opened the meeting by tell-
$2,095 $2,328 ing council members that "we need
187,490 $236,912 to know your thinking, your sug-
gestions and your best ideas about
the operation of the Canal."


I Councils


During the 1 hour meeting both
U.S. and Latin American council
members spoke of the problems
they considered of immediate im-
portance. Integrated schools and
housing were uppermost in the
minds of the speakers. Veysey said
there is a deep concern about the
housing issue.
Mason Flint, president, Gatun
Civic Council, made a strong state-
ment about the possible deteriora-
tion of the quality of education for
U.S. citizens if a one school con-
cept is adopted for all Canal Zone
residents.
Veysey said that as the father of
four children, he knows how im-
portant quality schooling is to both
students and parents and assured
the group that there was no plan to
downgrade the quality of schools.
"On the contrary," he added, "I see
every indication that everything is
being done to improve the quality
of your schools."
Thomas Warm, Coco Solo-France
Field Civic Council, said in his
opinion most of the stress which
U.S. and Latin American residents
of the Canal Zone feel can be at-
tributed to uncertainties caused by
lack of information on treaty nego-
tiations. Veysey said he could sym-
pathize with this problem, but he
felt sure that Governor Parfitt
would see that as much informa-
tion as possible about the negotia-
tions would be made public. Ru-
mors, he said, must not be accepted
as fact by Zone residents.
He said the operation and ad-
ministration of the Canal and the
Canal Zone should be in the best
tradition of American Government
and American managerial ability
and must be operated in a manner
that will withstand the spotlight of
international scrutiny.
Michael P. Gordon, Diablo rep-
resentative, expressed the view of
many of the council members at-
tending the meeting when he told
Veysey, "We (the U.S. and Latin
American citizens) can speak with
one voice. We can solve our prob-
lems if we work together not only
in these matters discussed today
but in our most important job of
putting ships through the Panama
Canal."


he had served as a teacher, ele-
mentary principal, college instruc-
tor, and in 1966 he was the Direc-
tor of a Title III ESEA, Federal
Project at Seward, Nebr. In 1962
Dr. Holmgrain was selected as the
first administrative intern from the
University of Nebraska and in-
terned with the Bellevue Public
Schools, Bellevue, Nebr.
He taught social studies for 2
years at Balboa High School prior
to his selection for the position of
Supervisor of Instruction which he
has held for the last 4 years.

Book on Energy

Gives Hints on

Conservation
Are you positive you have heard
or read every word that could pos-
sibly be said or written about
energy?
Well, you have not.
Dr. Horace Loftin, Chief of the
Canal Company's Energy Con-
servation Program, has received a
booklet "Citizen Action Guide to
Energy Conservation" that every-
one should read. It not only con-
tains new information but it is in-
teresting and easy to understand.
Subjects range from "Energy
and Its Impact on the American
Family" to "What Is Energy-
A Glossary of Commonly Used
Terms."
If you would like your own
copy of this useful booklet, call
Dr. Loftin at 52-7961. He has 40
copies which he will mail to the
first 40 people who call.


April was a very good month for
Army Sfc. Larry N. Cox. Follow-
ing him to his new assignment as
Chief, Bio Medical Maintenance
Repair Section, Gorgas Hospital,
were the Army Commendation
Medal he is wearing, and a cita-
tion recognizing his meritorious
service while a faculty member of
the USA Medical Equipment and
Optical School, Academy of Health
Sciences, Denver, Colo., from De-
cember 1970 to December 1974.
Soon after Dr. J. W. Ransone, Di-
rector, Gorgas Hospital, had pinned
the medal on Cox, a letter reached
the Iealth Bureau from the USA
Military Personnel Center advising
that the score Cox had received in
his 1974 Military Occupational
Score evaluation test equaled the
highest score made by any other
soldier tested in his field during
the 1974 testing period.

Cancer Detection
In a volunteer effort to assist
Canal Zone women in the early
detection of breast cancer, nurses
of Gorgas Hospital are prepared to
teach self-examination to those de-
siring such instruction.
The most effective way to com-
bat breast cancer is early detec-
tion. Every woman from teenage
on should maintain her own per-
sonal breast examination program.
To help Canal Zone women set up
programs and to teach them how
to examine themselves, nurses at
Gorgas Hospital will conduct a
series of Self Breast Examination
Clinics.
They will be held in the Gyn-
ecology Clinic at times that are
convenient for the majority of
women. The first clinic will be
held at 9 a.m., Saturday, May 24.
To assure effective instruction,
each session will be limited to 30
participants.
Those who wish to be included
may call 52-3920 from 8 a.m. to 4
p.m., Monday through Friday, for
an appointment.

Power blackouts are by no
means a thing of the past, but
lately there has not been an ex-
planation of the phenomenon to
equal one that appeared in the
PANAMA CANAL RECORD 50 years
ago. "An interruption to service on
the 44,000-volt transmission line
of the Panama Canal, which oc-
curred during the month of March,
was traced to a sloth," the item
begins. Apparently not content
with having sabotaged the No. 2
line, the animal was discovered
on a tower 10 hours later prepar-
ing to climb out on one of the
charged wires of the No. 1 line.
He was a hardy one, "still very
much alive, although burned and
singed in several places by the
flash-over." The writer notes that
the incident may explain several
previous interruptions for which no
explanation was ever found.
Another offender that month
was an acrobatic porcupine, dis-
covered by a lineman on a tower
and in contact with a dead line.
On being discovered, the porcu-
pine ran out on the line "in an
upright position as if on level
ground." And thereafter, in the
phrase of the writer, "some time
was required to dislodge it and
bring it down."
*a *
Looking through old issues of
the PANAMA CANAL RECORD, one
comes across any number of items
that could be filed under the head-
ing "How Times Have Changed!"
Not the least striking of these
related to Canal traffic. The RECORD
reported 50 years ago that 398
commercial vessels transited the
Canal in March 1925. That was
an average of 12.84 transits daily.
For the first 9 months of fiscal
year 1925, the RECORD reported
3,551 commercial transits.
The most recent figures com-
piled by the Canal organization
provide a dramatic contrast. In
March of this year 1,217 ocean-
going commercial vessels transited
the Canal for a daily average of
39.3 commercial transits. The fig-
ures for the fiscal year through
March show 10,168 transits of
oceangoing commercial vessels.

A far cry from the recent front-
page SPILLWAY headline "Zone


Sets 18-Month Malaria-Free Rec-
ord" is a routine item on vital
statistics that appeared in a May
1925 issue of the RECORD. It re-
ported 59 cases of malaria in the
preceding month, of which one
proved fatal. Two cases were re-
ported from Panama City, none
from Colon, 17 from Canal Zone
sanitated areas, and 40 from out-
side sanitated areas. Seven of the
victims were Panama Canal em-
ployees, 20 were nonemployees,
and 32 were Army and Navy per-
sonnel. The leading causes of
death that month were tuberculosis
and pneumonia.

Tax Rebate Checks

Arrive on Isthmus
Some of the 4 million tax rebate
checks put in the mail by the In-
ternal Revenue Service late last
week started arriving on the Isth-
mus over the weekend.
Postal officials estimate that Sat-
urday's airmail delivery brought
rebates to approximately 500 Canal
employees.
The checks are coming in daily
at a rate of about 10 to 15 a day.

Local Smithsonian Staff Biologist

Honored by California University


Dr. Jeffrey B. Graham, a staff
biologist at the Smithsonian Tro-
pical Research Institute (STRI), has
been honored as the most dis-
tinguished alumni for 1975 by the
College of Sciences and Alumni
Association of San Diego State
University.
Dr. Graham was graduated from
San Diego State in 1964 and re-
ceived his masters degree there in
1967. He completed his doctorate
in 1970 at the University of Cal-
ifornia's Scripps Institution of
Oceanography, La Jolla.
Dr. Graham has received inter-
terational recognition for his re-
search on the physiological ecology
of marine vertebrates. His studies
include the temperature and re-
spiratory physiology of intertidal
fishes and sea snakes, adaptations

Questions; Answers
,-' n.. -


Jn Retirement
Q.: Do voluntary contributions
earn interest?
A.: Yes. The amounts deposited
earn interest at 3 percent com-
pounded annually. While no inter-
est is earned after an employee's
membership in the retirement sys-
tem terminates, interest does con-
tinue for a former employee who is
eligible for deferred retirement
(which means he is eligible for an
annuity at age 62, based on an
earlier separation from the service).
Provided that the employee eligible
for deferred annuity does not with-
draw his voluntary contributions,
interest continues until the begin-
ning date of annuity, or until date
of death, whichever is earlier. The
contributions, plus interest, consti-
tute the voluntary contribution
account.
Q.: How are voluntary contribu-
tions made?
A.: They are made directly to
the Civil Service Commission. An
employee who wishes to make vol-
untary contributions files applica-
tion on Standard Form 2804 with
the Commission, and the Commis-
sion issues the necessary instruc-
tions for making these contribu-
tions.


for aerial vision in fishes, and heat
exchange and blood-gas relation-
ships in tunas. He is currently in-
vestigating the diverse air breath-
ing adaptations found in some of
the local fresh and salt water
fishes.
Graham began his association
with STRI in 1968 while a grad-
uate student. From 1970 to 1972
he was a visiting post doctoral fel-
low at the Institute and since 1972
has been a member of its perma-
nent research staff. Dr. Graham
lives in Panama City with his wife,
Rosemarie, and their two children
Jeffrey, Jr. and Wendy.


Tips Offered

To Conserve

Energy at Home

Among the greatest opportunities
for energy conservation in most
homes is the wise use of lighting.
So change your way of living and
make it a habit to do one, more
or all of these energy savers:
. . . Remove one bulb perma-
nently. Replace it with a burned-
out bulb for safety. Replace half
of the others with bulbs of the next
lower wattage.
S. .Concentrate liglhting in the
reading and working areas of your
home, reduce lighting in other
areas.
S . .Use fluorescent lights for
kitchen, bathroom and yard light-
ing. A single long tube is more
energy-efficient and economical
than two shorter bulbs.
. . . Do not use long-life in-
candescent lamps; they are more
energy-consuming and less efficient
than ordinary bulbs.
S. .Use one large bulb rather
than several smaller ones. One 100
watt incandescent lamp, for exam-
ple, produces more light than two
60-watt lamps.
... Turn off all lights when they
are not needed.
DON'T BE FUELISH.

Las entradas brutas de PanamA,
provenientes de la Zona del Canal,
alcanzaron una nueva marca du-
rante el afio calendario 1974, lle-
gando a $236.900.000 y significa-
ron un aumento del 26.4 por cien-
to sobre el aiio anterior.
El aumento se reflej6 principal-
mente en la compra de bienes en
Panama por parte de organismos
privados que operan dentro de la
Zona del Canal. Dichas compras,
que en 1973 fueron de $8.900.000,
en 1974 subieron a $40.000.000.
En dichas compras estan incluidos
el petr6leo, que subi6 de $2.4 mi-
Hlones en 1973, a $33.5 millones en
1974, de acuerdo con cifras oficia-
les suministradas por la Contralo-
ria de la Repiblica de PanamA.
El aumento en dichas entradas
incluye ademAs un aumento de 7.2
por ciento de aumento de salaries
pagados a panamefios que resident
en PanamA, pero que estan em-
pleados al servicio de agencies del
Gobierno de Estados Unidos, con-
tratistas y organismos privados ta-
les come agencies navieras, clubes,
iglesias, compaiiias petroleras, ban-
cos y asociaciones de empleados
que estan establecidos en la Zona
del Canal.
Otros aumentos de importancia
en las entradas brutas a Panama
provenientes de la Zona del Canal
son el resultado de los pagos por
invalidez, de auxilio y de jubila-
ci6n, hechos a panamefios por la
empresa del Canal de Panama y
otras agencies del Gobierno de los
Estados Unidos, que aumentaron

tifico a los Jardines de Summit tie-
nen su raz6n de ser. La flora pana-
mefia estA ampliamente represen-
tada alli, asi como la de otros pai-
ses del cintur6n tropical.
Ademis, Summit cuenta con un

a la fauna panamefia. Alli hay des-
de las distintas classes de felinos
que pueblan las montaiias paname-
fias-incluyendo jaguars, ocelotes,

riedad de aves, monos y otras es-

Jardines de Summit cuentan con
mis de 15.000 species de plants,
incluyendo la variedad Ixora pan-
canal desarrollada mediante cruces


en los propios Jardines de Summit,
que dieron lugar a un arbusto con
flores de coloraci6n rojo intense.
Plantas de esta variedad adornan
lugares pfiblicos de la Zona y al-
gunos lugares de la ciudad de
PanamA.
Una cantidad de las plants con
que cuenta Summit hoy dia han
sido traidas de sardines botanicos

mente de Miami y de los sardines

Botanicos de Misouri han identifi-
cado aproximadamente el 60 por
ciento de las plants que constitu-
yen la flora panameiia, principal-
mente del tipo ornamental. El re-

cados en faciculos en los que se
agrupan en familiar los distintos
g6neros.

ratos de esparcimiento. Son los Jardines de Summit
que albergan una gran cantidad de plants tropicales


Summit vende muchas de sus
plants reproducidas alli, a resi-
dentes de la Zona del Canal y de
Panama. Eventualmente ha dona-
do plants al municipio y a algunas
asociaciones de jardineria. Una

Tal es el caso, por ejemplo, del

Una pareja de jaguars figure
