2 Fishermen Are Rescued

By Dredging
Panama Canal Dredging Divi-
sion personnel braved rough seas
to rescue two fishermen who were
stranded last week at an island in
the Caribbean where their boat
had grounded and was in danger
of breaking up.
Rescued were M. R. Lerstang
and C. R. Kinkle, taken from the
53-foot Miss Cassie, a U.S. flag
vessel out of Texas that was bound

Discuss Plans for

Women's Year
At the suggestion of Bruce
Quinn, Special Assistant to the
Governor-President for Equal Op-
portunity, women leaders of Pan-
ama and the Canal Zone met in
the Conference Room in the Ad-
ministration Building the past
week to exchange ideas and ex-
periences and to report on their
respective plans for the observance
of International Women's Year
Gov. Harold R. Parfitt welcomed
the women and spoke briefly on
the Federal Women's Program in
the government.
Among those present represent-
ing women's groups in Panama
were Berta de Moscote, coordi-
nator of the National Committee
named by the Panama Government
for the observance of International
Women's Year; Emilia Valdemar
of the Federation of Catholic
Women; Mary O'Donnell de Rosas,
president of the National Femi-

president of Federally Employed
Women; Teddy Morris of the Isth-
mian University Club and the In-
teramierican Women's Club; and
Terry Appin, president of the In-
ternational Soroptimist Club.
Mrs. Moscote spoke on the con-

when it ran aground at Serranilla
Bank. The two were picked up by
Dredging Division personnel using
a cutter and were transported to
Cristobal Sunday aboard the crane-
boat Atlas.
The episode began 8 days ago
when the Miami Coast Guard con-
tacted the USAFSO Rescue Co-
ordination Center to report the
Miss Cassie aground. The Air
Force informed the Canal organi-
zation and dispatched a C-130 to
the scene. The aircraft dropped
an MA-1 survival kit containing
life rafts but the current swept
them away before the men aboard
the fishing boat could get to them.
The Atlas was in the area on a
semiannual maintenance trip to
lighthouses the Dredging Division
maintains at Quita Suenio, Ron-
cador and Serrana Bank at the
time. Capt. Clarence H. Teller,
master of the Atlas, dispatched a
motor cutter to Serranilla Bank to
carry out the rescue mission.
Aboard the cutter were Capt.
W. D. Boone and crewmen Mike
Garth, Eulalio Manuel and Nor-
berto Jeffers. Friday at about 6
a.m., they launched the cutter and
after reaching Serranilla Bank and
locating the grounded fishing boat,
had to contend with a rough surf
and 10-foot swells prior to trans-
fening Lerstang and Kinkle to the
cutter. They returned to tile Atla.

Success of the mission was at-

The Miss Cassie effort was tlhe
second rescue mission carried out

San Andres Island for treatment

The summer of 1975 promises
to be a fun-filled one for Canal
Zone children, age 6 to teenagers,
as the Division of Schools Phys-
ical Education Department pre-
pares for the Summer Recreation
Program scheduled for June 23
to August 8.
In an effort to keep idle hands
occupied and teach youngsters a
variety of team, individual and
lifetime sports, the Division of
Schools opened the various play-
shelters, gymnasiums and swim-
ming pools, for supervised games
and recreation on June 4. This
portion of the program will con-
tinue through June 20. The regular
summer program begins June 23
and continues through August 8.
Registration for the formal phase
of the summer recreation program
will be held June 17 and 18 at
Ancon, Balboa, Diablo Heights,
Los Rios and Gamboa in the Pa-
cific area and Gatun, Margarita
and Cristobal in the Atlantic area.
The Diablo gymnasium will be
closed for repairs; all activities
formerly scheduled there will be
held at the Diablo Heights play-
All units will field boys basket-
ball teams in the various A, B, C,
D and E leagues, league participa-
tion being determined by individ-
ual's age, height and weight. Boys
and girls volleyball will be played
at all units, with competition being
conducted in individual and co-
educational teams. Both activities
are available for students 10 years
old through graduating seniors.
Archery will be conducted at all
gymnasiums for children 10 years
of age to high school seniors.
Shooting distances and number of
arrows will be determined by age

A wide range of subjects from
budget deficits to schools to hous-
ing were discussed when Gov.
Harold R. Parfitt met in executive
session with representatives of U.S.
Civic Councils on May 29 and
Latin American Civic Councils on
June 2.
In his opening statement to both
councils, the Governor said that
before his arrival in the Canal
Zone he had been aware of the
concern and anxiety many res-
idents felt about treaty negotia-
For that reason, he had indi-
cated to his superiors and to the
State Department how important
he felt it was that employees be
kept informed as fully as possible
on the subject.
Ambassador-at-Large Ellsworth
Bunker's letter had been, he felt,
a step in the right direction and,
in a more recent letter, the Am-
bassador wrote that the concerns
of Canal Zone residents remain
uppermost in his mind and that he
looks forward to talking to the
councils again when he returns to
the Isthmus.
Governor Parfitt assured coun-
cil members he would continue to
seek information as it develops.
Turning to the severe financial
problems that faced him when he
anrived, he spoke of his "sad
task" of monitoring a severely tight
budget and pledged to try to pro-
tect the employees.

"The fact is," he concluded,
"we are up against very difficult
times but although the picture is
one of austerity for some tune to
come, I will do everything possible
to tighten the budget in a way
that will have the least impact on
employees' jobs and benefits."
Responding to a question from
Clarence C. Gordon, president of
the Santa Cruz Civic Council on
the status of the Ad Hoc Com-
mittee on Housing, Governor Par-
fitt said that both housing and
schools are high priority matters
he will turn to as soon as possible.
At both council meetings the
subjects of schools was discussed
extensively. William L. De La
Mater, Civic Council Staff Officer,
announced that there will be a
joint U.S.-Latin American Civic
Council meeting on July 21 at
which time David A. Speir Jr.,
Superintendent of Schools, will dis-
cuss a study made by the Gov-
ernor's Advisory Council on Edu-
cation. Many facets of the school
program including the single ses-
sion day and vocational training
will be covered.
Gordon also brought up a num-
ber of housing policies of concern
to his constituents from Santa Cruz
such as the prohibition against
bachelors applying for family quar-
ters when they marry and the re-
quirement that employees in the
worker training program vacate
their parents' quarters when they
reach age 21.
The Governor said these matters
will be considered in the overall
housing study.
The Gamboa commuter bus, bus
fares in the Pedro Miguel and Pa-
raiso townsites, and bus scheduling
to and from Gamboa-Santa Cruz

Governor Parfitt indicated he
was aware of the problem. An
audit is being made of the entire
operation and recommendations on
the busing problem will be made

Fred Ryan, Jr., first vice pres-
ident, Catun Civic Council, asked
for further consideration of the
granting of administrative leave to
Atlantic side residents who are
referred to Gorgas Hospital for
treatment not available at Coco
Solo Hospital. He based his re-
quest on the fact that round-trip
travel time, waiting time, and ex-
amination and treatment often

The need for fulltime security
guards at Coco Solo Hospital and
Gorgas Hospital was brought up
by Ryan and by Hank Thompson,
president of the Gamlboa Civic
Council. The governorr replied that
the entire subject of security is
under review.

Breast Cancer Health Quiz

QUESTION: What is the connection between cysts and breast cancer?

ANSWER: Many women, with large lumps which develop rather
quickly, become extremely worried. They are completely reassured when
the masses are found to have fluid which can be quickly and simply
removed with a needle.
This condition is a fairly common one, and calls for frequent observa-
tion. There is a difference of opinion among the experts as to whether
these large cysts in fact represent a higher risk of cancer development.
The increased risk, if any, is certainly of a low order or it would be
common knowledge to the authorities. Fortunately, these large cysts tend
to disappear after the menopause and the woman involved breathes a
deep sigh of relief.
It is important to realize that this condition of large cysts is not what
is usually called fibrocysticc disease," a label too frequently used to
describe the lumpy texture of most normal breasts. This term refers to
a vague, poorly defined entity which is probably not at all related to
the development of breast cancer. It should probably not be used by
physicians nearly as often as it is, for it only serves to frighten many
women whose breasts are completely normal.

Suggestions For

Happy Vacation
number one on the list of things
you should do before you leave on
When you notify the dispatcher
(52-7862 on the Pacific side and
43-2111 on the Atlantic side) that
you are leaving, he will send a
police officer to check doors and
windows for any deficiency that
might tempt a burglar.
You should give the dispatcher
the date of your departure and re-
turn so a regular check can be
made of your quarters, and the
name, address and phone number
of a responsible person the police
can call in case of an emergency.
It will help if that person has a
key to your quarters.
The Police Division also advises
that you:
. . . Leave a light on outside
your front and back door.
... Stop delivery of newspapers.
. . . Ask neighbors to call the
police immediately if they see any-
thing suspicious in or around your

Gulick School

Does Litter Bit

To Clean C.Z.
Jack Milligan's sixth grade at
Fort Gulick Elementary School is
doing its "litter bit" to help keep
the Canal Zone clean. At the same
time, its members are doing some
research of interest to Dr. Horace
Loftin, Secretary of the Environ-
mental Quality Committee.
After a photo of the class and
the "mini-mountain" of litter they
had collected on Bolivar Highway
between Margarita and Fort Davis
appeared in the SPILLWAY with
word that the students planned to
repeat their performance, Dr. Lof-
tin wrote to them.
"Your study is very interesting,"
he said, "so please be sure to let
me know the results on how much
trash is discarded in a given period
of time. I am sure this will be
useful to us here in the Environ-
mental Control Office."
About a week later, the class
sent Dr. Loftin its first report.
Describing their methodology,
the students said: "We had groups
of six go out for an hour each day.
We cleaned up a little over a 1/2
mile of road. The trash you saw in
the picture was from that area.
Last Friday, 2 weeks later, we
went back and picked up the trash
that had built up in that time."
This time, they found 40 beer
cans, 50 soda cans, 14 beer bottles,
2 Coke bottles, 19 cigarette pack-
ages, 7 candy wrappers, 64 paper
cups, 1 pear nectar can, 1 peanut
can, 3 milk cartons and 2 match-
They went on to outline an am-
bitious program. "We are planning
to take a picture of all the trash
that we've picked up," they said,
"and try to find out how much
will accumualte in a year's period
of time. Then we are going to form
it into slides and show it to other
people in the Canal Zone and tell
them what we have done and ask
them what they have done to
Having concluded that "littering
is not doing any good for the
country," the students closed their
letter with a statement of purpose
that makes a plea to all of us:
"We . . . hope to encourage
people to stop and think before
they throw litter to the ground
and we hope people will dispose
of their trash properly."

Hank Thompson, of Gamboa,
requested a status report on the
Civic Council questions regarding
possible military exchange privi-
leges for Panama Canal employees.
William Dunn, first vice president,
Pacific Civic Council, said an offi-
cial reply had been received from
the U.S. Southern Command, his
committee had studied it thor-
oughly, and had prepared a reso-
lution to be presented at the next
Pacific Civic Council meeting. Dur-
ing the ensuing discussion, it was
pointed out that if total PX privi-
leges were granted Canal Zone
residents it would of necessity re-
quire major changes in the present
Panama Canal retail sales system.
Hank Thompson asked if an an-
swer regarding the loss of Car-
denas housing had been received.
Governor Parfitt said he did not
want to relinquish any housing but
no ruling had been made yet.
The Governor agreed to look
into a number of other items
brought up by council members.
These included, a request by Hank
Thompson for a price reduction in
gasoline for Gamboa residents and
concern expressed by Gary Hud-
son, first vice president, Coco Solo-
France Field Civic Council, about
a keep-out sign posted by the mil-
itary warning of unexploded ord-
nance in the Fort Randolph area.
Hudson said since the military is
still issuing passes permitting res-
idents to use the area for diving,
any live explosives in the area
should be removed. The Governor
said a formal request for clarifica-
tion would be sent to military
Cleveland Roberts, first vice
president, Pedro Miguel Civic
Council, suggested that all employ-
ees of the PCC-CZG and their de-
pendents should be allowed to eat
in any PCC facility, specifically the
new Balboa Service Center.
Clarence Gordon recommended
that two or three lines in banks on
payday be reserved for employ-
ees cashing checks. Presently, he
said, personnel making large busi-

more, and thus away from their

ta mis reciente, el Embajador
Bunker afirm6 que aun permane-
cen latentes en su mente las pre-
ocupaciones de los residents de
la Zona del Canal y que proyecta
reunirse con los consejos cuando
regrese al Istmo.
El Gobernador Parfitt dio segu-
ridades a los miembros de los Con-
sejos Civicos de que continuara re-
cabando informaci6n a media que
progresen las negociaciones.
Abordando los agudos proble-
mas financieros que encontr6 en el
Canal al llegar al Istmo, cit6 su

de estricta austeridad en el pre-

atravesamos moments muy difi-
ciles pero, si bien el cuadro de-
manda austeridad por un tiempo
considerable, hare todo lo possible
para ajustar el presupuesto de ma-
nera que tenga el menor impact
possible en la estabilidad de los
empleados y en sus beneficios".
Respondiendo a una pregunta
de Clarence G. Gordon, presiden-
te del Consejo Civico de Santa
Cruz, sobre el estado del trabajo
encomendado al Comit6 Ad Hoc
sobre Vivienda, el Gobernador Par-
fitt dijo que tanto los problems
educativos como el de la vivienda

En ambas sesiones los asuntos
relacionados con las escuelas fue-

anunci6 que habra una sesi6n con-
junta de los Consejos Civicos Es-

La Division de Dragado

Rescata Dos
Empleados de la Divisi6n de
Dragado del Canal de Panama se
enfrentaron a mar brava, para res-
catar a dos pescadores que queda-
ron desamparados al encallarse en
un arrecife del Caribe la embarca-
ci6n en que navegaban y que que-
d6 en peligro de partirse.
Fueron rescatados M. R. Ler-
stang y G. H. Kinkle, quienes fue-
ron sacados del Miss Cassie, de 53
pies de largo, de bandera norte-
americana, registrado en Texas,
que se dirigia hacia la Costa Occi-
dental de Estados Unidos via el
Canal de PanamA, cuando encall6

en el Banco de Serranilla. Los dos
fueron recogidos en un cuter a
motor por empleados de la Divi-
si6n de Dragado y luego Ilevados
al Puerto de Crist6bal a bordo del
barco grfla Atlas.
El episodio comenz6 hace 8 dias,
cuando la Guardia Costanera de
Miami se comunic6 con el Centro

Fuerza A6rea del Comando Sur
de los Estados Unidos, para infor-
mar que el Miss Cassie habia en-
callado. La Fuerza A6rea inform

dente. El avi6n dej6 caer un equi-
po de supervivencia MA-1 que
contiene balsas salvavidas, pero la
corriente so lo llev6 antes de que
los nAufragos pudieran alcanzarlo.
El Atlas se encontraba en el
area, en el curso de su viaje semi-
anual de mantenimiento a los faros
que la Divisi6n de Dragado man-
tiene en los bancos Quita Suefio,
Serrana y Roncador, cuando se re-
cibi6 el pedido de auxilio. El Ca-
pitAn Clarence H. Teller, capitAn
del Atlas, despach6 un cuter a
motor al banco Serranilla, para lle-
var a cabo la misi6n de rescate.
A bordo del c6ter iban el Capi-
tAn W. D. Boone y los tripulantes
Mike Garth, Eulalio Manuel y
Norberto Jeffers. El viernes, alre-
dedor de las 6 a.m. fue lanzado al
agua el cuter y cuando Ilegaron al
banco Serranilla y divisaron la em-
barcaci6n encallada, tuvieron que
luchar con olas de 10 pies de alto
y una fuerte reventaz6n, antes de
trasladar a bordo de la lancha a
Lerstang y a Kinkle. A las 11 a.m.,
estaban de regreso en el Atlas con
sus dos pasajeros.
