The construction work being
done to reinforce Gorgas Hospital
against the effects of an earthquake
will mean increased difficulty in
parking and frequent changes in
the traffic pattern. It will take an
estimated year and a half to com-
plete work on the project, which
includes construction of two seismic

ing to the sixth floor, one on the
side facing St. Luke's Cathedral

opposite side near the main en-

There will be fewer parking
spaces available alongside the hos-
pital, and a part of the parking lot
on Culebra Road will he closed to
public parking and used as the
contractor's work area.
To minimize the effect of the
tight parking situation, patients
and visitors are asked to lend their
cooperation in the following ways:
-When possible, have someone
drive you to the hospital or take
a taxi. This will leave parking
space for someone else who may
need it more than you do.
-If you cannot have someone
drop you off at the hospital, keep
in mind that you will probably have
to park at a greater distance from
the hospital than usual. Try to
leave earlier when going to the
hospital, allowing yourself more
time not only to find a parking
space but also to walk to the
Everyone using the hospital
facilities or passing through the

retired this week following a Canal
career of almost 43 years, all of
which has been with the same

service to the community, where

all areas of endeavor, he was
presented by Gov. Harold R. Par-
fitt a Distinguished Service Award
and a Master Key Certificate, on
the day of his retirement.
His wife, the former Mary Brad-
ney of Ancon, retired on the same
day from her position as Adminis-
trative Assistant, Office of the
Director, Health Bureau.
Member of a well-known family
in the Canal Zone, Egolf was born
in Reading, Pa. He was 2 years
old, and so was the Panama Canal,
when he came to the Isthmus in
August 1916, when his father was
employed as a lock operator on
the Canal. He attended Canal
Zone schools and his first job was
as doorman at the old Catun
Theater, earning 50 cents a night.
Upon the completion of his
studies at Canal Zone College, he
went to work full time in 1934 as
a clerk in the Supply Division in
Cristobal. Through the years, he
was progressively promoted to posi-
tions of increasing responsibility;
from principal clerk in 1941, he
went up the ladder to Assistant
District Quartennaster, Housing
Manager in 1950, Assistant Chief
of the Housing Division and Man-

and members of the U.S.-Latin

educators be invited to speak to
Canal Zone residents.
fie said he had recently attended
a 1-week seminar on the subject
of Canal treaty negotiations spon-
sored by the University of Okla-
honma and found the Panamanian
speakers so impressive that he
came away with a much different
and more mature opinion and un-
derstanidng of both the subject
and the viewpoint of the Pan-
ananian citizens.

Loaded at Port Elizabeth, N.J.,
the new crane arrived at Balboa
Dock 14 as deck cargo aboard
the U.S. Lines vessel American

cluding the chassis, cab and boom
assemblies and weight distributing
floats, weighing approximately 50
tons, were unloaded by the Dredg-

residents are very pleased. He
added that the off-street parking
facilities seem to be going up one
a day and everyone is happy with
the progress and speed.
Thomas A. Warm, 2d VP, Coco
Solo-France Field Civic Council,
complained that the standard of
living of Canal Zone residents is
lowered evervtime there is a re-
duction in services. He felt that if
it costs more to put ships through
the Canal, then the ships should
pay higher tolls instead of the em-
ployees subsidizing the ships.
The Lieutenant Covernor ob-
served that the current austerity
program is directed toward an
equitable sharing of cost reduc-
tions by all facets of the operation
with as little impact on the indi-
vidual as possible.

Fish Story

The "fish story" three recent
visitors to the Isthmus are telling
is true, and they carried 100
pounds of Marlin fillets from the
Canal Zone to Fort Worth, Tex.,
as proof.
Joe and Dennis Stanford, broth-
ers of Bill Stanford of the Indus-
trial Division, and a friend, Dick
McNuff, flew to the Canal Zone
for some deep-sea fishing.
Along with Bill, his son, Ed,
and Dr. Randy Robertson, they
got underway on the famed sport
fisherman Caimdn II, and in spite
of warnings that the "big ones"
were not striking, the six-man party
returned with the kind of haul
States' fishermen only dream of:
two marlins that weighed in at
468 and 324 pounds, five sailfish
weighing more than 100 pounds
each, and many dolphin, tuna,
amberjack and mackerel. A catch
that added up to 1,500 pounds of
fine fillets.
Even in Texas, where every-
thing is "so big," this fish store ,
just has to be one of the biggest.

Questionnaire Boxes

Installed at Coco Solo
Deposit boxes for patient eval-
nation questionnaires are now
located in three convenient loca-
tions at Coco Solo Hospital: the
General Practice Clinic, Specialty
Clinic and Pharmacy.
Patients are encouraged to com-
plete a questionnaire and drop it
in one of the boxes.
The questionnaire, which is also
available at Gorgas Hospital, is
designed to allow patients to tell
hospital personnel what they think
of the treatment they received.
It asks such questions as the
name of the clinic attended,
whether the patient had an ap-
pointment, was seen promptly and,
if not, if an explanation was given
for the delay.
It also asks for a description of
service which the patient gives by
checking answers such as helpful,
disinterested or rude for the recep-
tionist and nurse, and courteous,
understanding, indifferent, hurried,
etc. for the physician.
There is space provided for the
patient's general impression of the

ror Job Letters
Atlantic side employees are re-
minded that it takes at least 4
days to process a "job letter" and
should bear this in mind when
requesting such a document.
A "job letter" verifying a per-
son's employment with the Canal
organization is required for loans
and other business transactions in
the Republic of Panama.
Records of all Canal employees
are kept on the Pacific side of the
Isthmus and it takes a minimum of
4 workdays for the request to be
mailed to, Ancon, processed, and
the "job letter" to be received at
the Cristobal Personnel Office.
Only in a case of a bona fide
emergency can a "job letter" be
obtained in 1 day.

Bob Webb will show "Darien
Adventure," a slide presentation
of his motorcycle trip to Colom-
bia, when the Diablo Camera Club
meets Thursday evening, August 7,
at the Panama Canal Training
The main topic for discussion
will be the August field trip to
the interior of Panama.
The club makes a monthly field
trip to stimulate good photog-
raphy among its members and

were necessary to provide a con-
tract, tariffs, procedures for in-
stallation, port operation, rigging
and movement of the crane, as
well as, operator and maintenance
support. Studies were made also
on dock capabilities by Engineer-
ing and Construction Bureau en-
gineers and U.S. Lines engineer-
ing consultants.
The P & H crane will handle
the loading and unloading of 20-
foot and 40-foot containers aboard
Lancer class and similar U.S. Lines
container vessels. Two U.S. Lines
vessels are expected to be arriving
at Balboa regularly each week,
one from the east coast and the
other from the west coast, making
approximately 96 visits to the
Canal each year. The Canal tran-
sits are part of the company's Tri-
Continental Container Service, a

15,000 mile thruway to three con-
tinents linking Europe, the East
and West coasts, the U.S., Hawaii,
Guam and the Far East.
Crane operators, crane mainten-
ance and other services connected
with the crane will be provided by
the Panama Canal organization
for U.S. Line's account. The P &
H also will be used for the load-
ing and unloading of break bulk
cargo, not in competition with
U.S. Lines containers.
The giant crane, a mobile boom
type axle driven crane on pneu-
matic tires, is 150 feet high and
has a capacity of 30 tons. A unique
feature of the crane is the fact
that the control cab sits on a spe-
cial boom about 40 feet above the
dock, giving the operator a better
view of the loading and unloading

Amateurs To Box

For United Way

A full card of top flight amateur
talent from military and civilian
communities of the Canal Zone
and Panama will compete in ama-
teur boxing matches on August 14
at the Curundu Junior High School
Cafetoriun. The matches will get
underway promptly at 7 p.m.
The program will be sponsored
by the Canal Zone USO-Jewish
Community Armed Forces Center
for the benefit of the Canal Zone
United Way.
Invitations to participate have
gone out to amateur boxers of the
U.S. military in the Canal Zone,
amateur boxing clubs in the Re-
public of Panama and the Balboa
Boxing Club which trains daily
at the Balboa YMCA.
Three members of the Balboa
Boxing Club will be making their
amateur debuts. They are Kirk
Kunkel, a 13-year-old, 95-pound
southpaw slugger, Ezra Hensley
who will compete in the junior
welterweight class, and Eduardo
Starrett, a welterweight.
Other Balboa Club entries are
former Paraiso High School stu-
dent Emilio Amantine, who will
box in the light middleweight
class. Amantine has won four of
his five bouts in Panama City by
Bantamweight Francisco P6rez,
known in local amateur boxing
circles as "El Cisco Kid," has won
his last three outings in the Pan-
ama rings.
The veteran of the Balboa team
is Antonio Santana, a feather-
weight who has fought over 30
amateur bouts. His last win was
on June 28 when he decisioned
Eduardo Williams, featherweight
champion of Club Siglo XX in
Admission will be $3 for ring-
side seats; general admission will
be $2 for adults and $1 for chil-
dren under 12.
Proceeds will go to the Canal
Zone United Way.

They Rocked and Rocked

... Around the Clock

There was nary a murmur of
complaint from their elders when
14 teenagers decided to rock
around the clock in the Fellowship
Hall of the Church of the Nazarene
in Ancon. Quite the contrary.
Under the sponsorship of Mrs.
Lois Sprague, the Nazarene Young
People's Society resolved to defy
the sleep-inducing properties of
the rocking chair as their contri-
bution to the denomination's world-
wide campaign to raise funds for
a new mission in Bogota, Colom-
The idea of holding a "rocka-
thon" to raise money for the mis-
sion originated with Lois and
Richard Sprague, one of four
couples who work regularly with
the church's teenagers. They had
seen a similar project produce good
results at the church they attended
in Lynn, Mass., before the U.S.
Air Force transferred Sergeant
Sprague to Howard AFB 5 months
With this inspiration, youth
groupl members set out 3 weeks in
advance to collect signatures for
pledges ranging from 1 to 50 cents
for each hour of rocking. The pro-

gram gained more volunteers and
further support through an ap-
pearance on SCN-TV's "dQu6 Pa-
sa?" by Mrs. Dee Birchard, who,
with her doctor husband Carl,
acts as coordinator of the youth
group activities.
So, armed with puzzles, radios,
cards for solitaire, Monopoly, and
books the volunteers, aged 11 to
16, took up their posts around
an ample table in the Fellowship
Hall at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 25,
determined to rock their way to
During the day, there was abun-
dant activity in the hall, as the
ladies of the church supplied
sandwiches, hotdogs, hamburgers,
pizzas, soft drinks, coffee and
doughnuts-anything easy to eat
or drink while rocking-and did
what they could to keep things
The youngest member of the
church community to take part in
the rockathon was 7-week-old Bob-
by George, who spent the first
night alternately being rocked and
sleeping peacefully in a nearby
crib while his mother, Mrs. Carol

George, helped keep other activi-
ties going.
Not surprisingly, there were a
few cases of motion sickness that
called for taking Dramamine, but
the show went on.
At the 24-hour mark, Mrs.
Sprague counted off nine tireless
rockers and figured that the $885
mark had been passed. Four of
those still at it had saved up their
hourly 5-minute breaks in order
to shower and refresh themselves
for the day ahead.
Some of the teens had com-
mitted themselves in advance to a
48-hour rock, and Mrs. Sprague
assessed their chances, voting those
who were maintaining a steady
rhythm and keeping busy at soli-
taire, games or reading the ones
most likely to succeed. The read-
ing, incidentally, was designed to
bring in additional money, as one
church member had offered a do-
nation of $3 for each book about
the church's missionary activities
that was read during the rocka-
There were additional incentives.
One church member had pledged
a donation of $25 to the project in
the name of the winner, Pastor
Mert Winkle had offered $10 to the
winner, and Mrs. Birchard had
offered $10 to anyone who made it
to the 48-hour mark.
During the second day, the
rockers found their numbers whit-
tled away further, as some opted

after 44 hours of continuous rock-
ing to use their accumulated 5-
minute breaks to take "15-minute
naps" that extended into the in-
definite future.
Mrs. Sprague's prediction of the
day before proved accurate, as a
triumphant Curtis Mase hit the
48-hour mark and friends Eliza-
beth Roth and Terry Haggerty
chalked up 48V2 hours each, then
agreed to call it quits because

neither wanted to outdo the other.
At an awards presentation dur-
ing church services last Sunday,
Elizabeth and Terry jointly re-
ceived the winner's trophy and all
were recognized for their part in
the immensely successful rocka-
thon which, far surpassing its
stated goal, added $1,400 to the
Ancon Church of the Nazarene's
contribution for the new Bogota
medical mission.

First 24 hours completed!

Breast Cancer Health Quiz
QUESTION: Why Is Breast Self-Examination So Important?

ANSWER: The oldest, by far the most common, and probably the
most effective method for earlier breast cancer detection is B.S.E.-breast
This procedure is simplest to follow, the least expensive, the most
readily available. It improves in value with regular repetition. It can be
used profitably at any age, in any climate, and in any location.
Many women, however, have never had the inclination or the courage
to examine their own breasts. They seem to be turned off by the
irregularities and the variations in consistency they find.
Some women complain that they develop anxieties when they feel
their breasts because they suspect they have lumps.
A woman needs to be aware that a breast is not a jelly-like mass, but
that it does and should contain various structures, some of which are
felt as nodules or thickenings or small lumps. After a complete profes-
sional examination she should be reassured that her breasts are normal,
with all the little irregularities.
Every woman's breast is different from all others. Each breast varies
in texture from year to year, and often during a single month. It is true
that an intelligent woman's fingers are an excellent method of breast
examination because every woman can become aware of her own breast
makeup and can readily detect a change, often a very tiny variation.

sombrias para ellos. Los peces pica-
ban esporidicamente y esta situa-
ci6n se mantuvo por semanas.
Pero en el Istmo, las cosas cam-
biaron radicalmente para el trio.
Acompafiados por Ed, el hijo de

suerte en los mares panamefios.
El resultado fue que el trio

delfines, atunes, peces sierra y
otras variedades comestibles. Muy
satisfechos de su aventura, los
orgullosos pescadores se deshicie-

objetos para hacer espacio a su
preciosa carga.

Cancer en las Mamas

Otra de las interrogantes que se hacen con frecuencia muchas
personas es si el empleo de hormones despues de la menopausia
puede ser causa de cAncer. A continuaci6n ofrecemos algunas
consideraciones al respect:
Hay controversial en torno al efecto de las hormones durante
la menopausia. Algunos consideran firmemente convencidos que
estas hormones tienen el efecto de proteger las mamas. Segin
estos, hay una menor proporci6n de cancer en las mamas entire
quienes reciben tratamiento con hormones despues de la meno-
pausia. Algunos facultativos estAn plenamente convencidos,
por otra parte, de que esta clase de medicamento es peligrosa
y no debe ser administrado.
Quiz.s lo mejor sea utilizar hormones lnicamente cuando
son recetadas por su midico, pero aseg6rese de recibir un
examen en las mamas a intervalos regulars.

Mahana Haran Homenaje

A un Empleado del Canal

Jerry Winkle (izquierda) recibe un pedazo de pastel de manos de Kim-
berly Stone, mientras ambos participan activamente en la marat6n de
mecedoras organizada por j6venes de la Iglesia del Nazareno, de Anc6n,
para recoger fondos para ayudar a la construcci6n de la nueva misi6n
de BogotA. Winkle y Kimberly se mecieron por mis de 24 horas conti-
nuas. Los j6venes lograron recoger $1,400.

J6venes Colectaron $1,400

En Marathon de Mecedoras

Los adolescents que pertene-
cen a la Iglesia del Nazareno de
Anc6n decidieron cooperar en la
campafia mundial que Ileva a cabo
dicha iglesia, para la construcci6n
de una nueva misi6n en BogotA,
Colombia, con . . . juna marat6n
de mecedoras!
Todos los feligreses de la igle-
sia estuvieron de acuerdo con la
original idea y bajo el patrocinio
de ]a Sra. Lois Sprague, la Socie-
dad Juvenil de la Iglesia del Naza-
reno decidi6 desafiar las propieda-
des soporiferas de la mecedora con
este fin grandemente altruista.
La idea en realidad la tuvieron
Lois y Richard Sprague, una de
las cuatro parejas que regularmente
trabajan con los adolescents de la
iglesia. Habian Ilevado a cabo un
proyecto similar para recaudar fon-
dos, con muy buenos resultados,
en la iglesia a que asistian en
Lynn, Massachusetts antes de que
la Fuerza Aerea de los Estados
Unidos trasladara hace 5 meses al
Sgto. Sprague a la Base de
Inspirados por los esposos
Sprague, los jovencitos se decidie-
ron durante las 3 semanas ante-
riores a la marat6n, a coleccionar
firmas en que se comprometian
pagar desde 1 hasta 50 centavos
por cada hora en que se mecieran.
El program consigui6 mAs volun-
tarios y mayor apoyo gracias a una
propaganda por television. Fue en-
tonces que el Dr. Carl Birchard
y su esposa se dedicaron a coor-
dinar las actividades de los j6ve-
A las 10 a.m. del jueves 24 de
julio, armados de toda clase de im-
plementos que les impidieran dor-
mirse mientras se mecian, los vo-
luntarios, colocados alrededor de
una gran mesa en el Sal6n de la
Amistad, empezaron a mecerse
decididos a recolectar $1,000.
Durante el dia, habia much
actividad, pues las damas de la
iglesia estaban alli ofreciendo em-
paredados y refrescos a los que
se mecian.
El miembro mas joven de la
comunidad que tom6 parte en la
marat6n fue Bobby George, de 7
meses, quien pas6 la primera no-
che siendo mecido y dormido en
su cuna, mientras su madre, la
Sra. Carol George ayudaba en
otras actividades.
Hubo algunos casos de mareo,
que se curaron con Dramamina,
pero la competencia no se detuvo.
Al Ilegar a las 24 horas, la Sra.
de Sprague cont6 nueve incansa-

bles competidores en sus mecedo-
ras y calcul6 que se habia pasado
la marca de los $885. Cuatro de
los que quedaban en la competen-
cia habia guardado sus 5 minutes
de descanso de cada hora, con el
fin de poderse dar un bafio y
refrescarse para el nuevo dia.
Algunos de los adolescents se
habian propuesto durar 48 horas
y la Sra. Sprague consider que
los que mantenian un ritmo parejo
y jugaban solitario eran los que
mis probabilidades tenian. La lec-
tura traia dinero adicional, pues
una persona habia prometido $3
por cada libro sobre actividades
misionales que se leyera durante
la competencia.
Durante el segundo dia, el nm-
mero de concursantes disminuy6,
pues various optaron por mecerse
44 horas seguidas, para dormir 15

esa entidad, integrada por descen-
dientes de los obreros que vinie-
ron a colaborar en la construcci6n

cargo que ha ocupado por 5 afios
consecutivos, hasta el present.

Modestin tendrA lugar mariana
sAbado 2 de agosto, en el Jardin
Costa de Oro de la ciudad de Co-
16n y la misica para la ocasi6n
estara a cargo de la orquesta de'
maestro Willie Moro.
Modestin tiene un total de 15
afios de servicios con el Canal de
Panama, que inici6 como pasaca-
bles en las Esclusas de Gatfin. En
1963 fue trasladado a la cancha de
boliche de Balboa por poco tiem-

dia de detenci6n en la .Estaci6n
de Policia de Crist6bal. Desde
entonces, presta servicios como
guardia en la Divisi6n de Protec-
ci6n al Canal.
El padre de Modestin, Joseph
M. Modestin, lleg6 al Istmo en
octubre de 1907, contratado para
trabajar en la construcci6n de la
via interoceAnica. Trabaj6 como
lubricador, fogonero de gr6a a
vapor y capataz de una cuadrilla
de obreros. Dej6 nueve hijos, siete
varones y dos mujeres, todos los
