Annual Meeting To Buv 1976 Plates

Ephraim S. Wright, left, and Thomas A. Warm clasp hands in a gesture
that symbolizes the feelings and actions of all those who helped Wright
up the long and winding road he followed from destitution on the steps
of the Cristobal Personnel Office to haven at the Atlantic Home.

Aged Navy Retiree Gets

Aid from Good Samaritan

If you were looking for a Good
Samaritan, would you think of
trying the Cristobal Personnel
Someone did. And with out-
standing success.
One day last November, an un-
identified person took 91-year-old
Ephraim S. Wright to the per-
sonnel office and disappeared.
Personnel Staffing Specialist
Thomas A. Warm interviewed
Wright and found he had a peck
of troubles. He had lost all of his
identification and therefore could
not claim the modest check due
him as a retired civilian employee

6 U.S.-University


To Speak in Panama
Representatives from six univer-
sities in the United States will be
in Panama on Wednesday and
Thursday, February 4 and 5, to
speak to high school and junior
college guidance personnel, stu-
dents and parents.
The universities will host a
luncheon at the Holiday Inn in
Panama City for the guidance per-
sonnel at 12:30 p.m., Wednesday.
Students and parents are in-
vited to go to the hotel for inter-

of the U.S. Navy. He had no
known relatives in Panama or his
native Jamaica. He was nearly
blind and deaf, lame and ap-
parently undernourished.
Going beyond the call of duty,.
Warm decided to help him.
Even though Wright had not
worked for the Canal organization
since 1920, Arsenio Morales of the
Agency Records Center quickly
located his old personnel file and
sent it by train to Cristobal.
The file provided enough mate-
rial, including fingerprints, to en-
able Jamaican Consul Oscar Savage
to issue Wright a certificate of
nationality, which would serve as
official identification. Maj. Ralph
C. Stone, Commander of the Cris-
tobal Police District, provided a
free photo for the identification.
And then the U.S. Embassy for-
warded Wright's retirement check
to the Cristobal Personnel Office.
Warm meanwhile had enlisted
the aid of Carlos Hyams, a retired
Panama Canal employee.
Wright granted power of attor-
ney to Hyams, who took Wright's
check and, keeping a careful ac-
counting, began to take care of
his obligations and expenses.
The Jamaican Consul suggested
that Wright move to the Atlantic
Iome, a private home for the aged
in Colon. This seemed a good idea
to everyone except Wright, whom
no amount of explanation could
convince that the Atlantic Home
was not "the poor house."
Nevertheless, his benefactors ob-
tained an application for the home
and began a "sales" campaign.
Dr. Ernest Bynoe of the Cris-
tobal Personnel Office gave Wright
a free medical examination. Jack

The Panama Canal Company
Board of Directors is in Balboa
Heights this week for its annual
session on the Isthmus. The Board
normally convenes for three other
formal meetings during the year.
Headed by Chairman Victor V.
Veysey, the Board planned a full
round of activities that will in-
clude visits to key physical in-
stallations on both sides of the
Of primary importance to the
Board of Directors at this time is
the Canal's financial situation
which has resulted in large meas-
ure from a sharp decline in ship
traffic. The Board is making a
thorough review of the situation,
discussing corrective measures taken
to date and exploring other means
to achieve a reversal in the trend.
In addition to the usual Board
and Finance Committee members,
the newly-formed Policy and Plan-
ning Committee composed of four
Board members will meet for the
first time in the Canal Zone. The
primary mission of this committee
is the development of the long-
range policy of the Company. It
is expected that this group's work
will cover all areas of the Canal or-
ganization, studying existing policy
and recommending such measures
as are necessary to meet changes
in economic and other conditions.
Veysey visited selected work-
sites and the Board attended the
Governor's Prayer Breakfast yester-
day at Curundu Junior High School
Other members of the Board
attending the meeting are: Gov.
H. R. Parfitt, chairman; Thaddeus
R. Beal; A. Gray Boylston; Britton
Gordon; Frank Jorgensen; William
F. Price; William D. Rogers,
Assistant Secretary of State for
Inter-American Affairs; Mrs. Mar-
jorie B. Shanard; Webster B. Todd;
and Einar Viren.

In Colon, if you ask for Everett
E. Dudley you'll probably find that
nobody knows him. But if you ask
for "Bepo" Dudley you'll be told
right away that he's a great saxo-
phonist, that he's highly esteemed
for his winning personality and
concern for others, and that he
works in Crisfobal at the Panama
Canal Terminals Division.
Bepo Dudley has worked for
the Canal for more than 48 years-
since July 1927, when he was hired
by the old Mechanical Division
(now the Industrial Division) as an
office boy. During his 34 years
there, he served as motorcycle
messenger, office helper, time-
keeper and accounting clerk. In
1961 he transferred to the Ter-
minals Division, where he is now
an accounts maintenance clerk. He
received outstanding performance
awards in 1959 and 1974.
Born in Panama, Bepo spent his
childhood and youth in the old
town of La Boca, in the Canal
Zone. His wife, Luisa Carlota,
graduated from the Escuela Pro-
fesional in Panama City and later
specialized in dressmaking and
cake decoration. A Buddhist, she
recently represented Panama at
international Buddhist congresses
in Los Angeles, Calif., and Hono-
lulu, Hawaii.
The Dudleys have three sons
and a daughter.
A graduate of the Escuela de
Artes y Oficios Melchor Lasso de
la Vega, where he studied account-
ing, their son Evans is a ward
clerk at Gorgas Hospital. Their
daughter Yvonne also studied ac-
counting, at the Instituto T6cnico
de Contabilidad.
Emilio, a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Panama in public ad-
ministration, works for the U.S.
Army in Corozal as supervisor of
the Quality Audit Section of the
Finance and Accounting Office.
And Eduardo has a doctorate in
economics and law from the Sor-
bonne in Paris and presently holds
a high position in the Panamanian
Ministry of Planning and Economic
Bepo Dudley is very proud of
his children, because all of them
worked hard to become what they
are, especially Eduardo, who went
to Paris immediately upon gradua-
tion from Panama's National In-
stitute and made many sacrifices
through his 12 long years of study
there. He says Eduardo first ob-
tained a degree in the French lan-
guage, in order to pursue his other
Bepo says he has everything to
make a man happy: a wonderful
wife, four children who couldn't
be better, a good job, and an
exciting pastime that fills his free
hours-playing the saxophone as
only he can.

Santa Cruz Center Offers

Wide Range of Classes
The Santa Cruz Multipurpose
Social Welfare Center announces
registration for a number of classes
open to all Panama Canal em-
ployees and military personnel and
their dependents.
Classes will be given in wood-
working and upholstery, cake
decorating, dressmaking, tailoring,
typing and shorthand, English,
Spanish and other fields. Those
interested may register in the base-
ment of the old Santa Cruz Ele-
mentary School in Gamboa or call
56-6514 or 56-6866.

The Office of Equal Employment
Opportunity of the Panama Canal
organization will present a film and
discussion on the problems and
role of the Black woman, as an
activity commemorating Black His-
tory Month.
The program will be presented
at the Canal Zone College audi-
torium at 6:30 p.m., February 4.
The public is invited.

Library-Museum Has

Historical Exhibit
"Early Life on the Isthmus,"
featuring several aspects of life in
Canal construction days, is cur-
rently on display at the Canal Zone
Library-Museum. A selected bi-
bliography guides persons inter-
ested in learning more to books
about those times.
Included in the exhibit are rocks
taken from Gaillard Cut before it
was filled with water; a doll
wearing typical workclothes of
the construction era; commissary
coupon books; a commissary and
quarters privilege card which was
good for only 1 day; Doulton "Blue
Willow" dishes; and programs from
various social events of the era.
The display, which is open to
the public from 7:15 a.m. to 9 p.m.
each weekday and from 9:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays, will
continue until April.

The program will begin with a
showing of the film "The Black
Woman," which features prominent
Black women including Lena
Horne, Roberta Flack, and Nikki
Giovanni. The film points to prob-
lems of Black women today, their
identity changes in their traditional
roles and the emergence of their
social, cultural and political values.
The discussion, however, deals
with problems of special interest
to every woman, not only Black
A panel discussion will follow
the film presentation. Moderator
will be Dr. Ana Mora Wakeland,
Federal Women's Program Coor-
dinator for the Canal organization.
Panel members will be: Maria
Brown, clerk, Terminals Division,
and member of the Women's Ad-
visory Council to the Governor;
Penny Brown, EEO Officer, 193d
Infantry Brigade, Canal Zone; Pat
Lindley, attorney, Office of the
General Counsel; Joyce Peterson,
professor, Extension Division of
Florida State University, who is
on the Isthmus as an exchange
professor. (Ms. Peterson is cur-
rently teaching the course "His-
tory of Women in the U.S." during
the spring semester at the univer-
sity); Rita Sosa, teacher, Balboa

BHS, CHS Are Notified

Of New Accreditation

Balboa High School and Cris-
tobal Junior-Senior High School
have been notified of their con-
tinuance as accredited members of
the Middle States Association of
Colleges and Secondary Schools.
This mark of distinction will ex-
tend for another 10 years the
accreditation the two schools have
enjoyed since the late 1920's. In
addition, Curundu Junior High
School has been accepted as an
accredited member of the Middle
States Association. It is only in re-

EEO Program

Gets Approval
A plan of action for calendar
year 1976 that was drawn up by
the Panama Canal Office of Equal
Opportunity has received the ap-
proval of Gov. H. R. Parfitt and
the U.S. Civil Service Commission.
Included are a number of specific
actions designed to improve the
overall effectiveness of the EEO
program. Among them are those
that would:
-augment the EEO staff with an
additional investigator and secre-
tary to process investigations under
time requirements established by
the commission;
-promote 10 females to posi-
tions at NM-9 and above to rec-
tify the absence of women in su-
pervisory level positions;
-place minority member on U.S.
recruitment teams to help meet
recruitment goals;
-establish an upward mobility
program for non-U.S. citizens, U.S.
minorities and females;
-conduct a skills utilization
-establish career counseling
-conduct periodic review of se-
lections and promotions;
-expose managers to upward
mobility and career counseling
training by establishing training
courses for managers;
-continue incorporating basic
EEO training in employment de-
velopment courses.
The report that details the ac-
tion plan also discusses advances
made during the past year. Be-
cause 1975 was International
Women's Year, special emphasis
was given to the accomplishments
of women.
Among them were the establish-
ment of a full-time position of
Federal Women's Program Coor-
dinator: the designation of Wom-
en's Week in the Canal Zone: and
the opening of new occupational
fields to women. The Canal orga-
nization employed its first female
marine traffic controller assistant
and police officer. By the end of
1975, four women were serving
on the Canal Zone Police force.
Five females were employed in the
apprentice program and the first
female boarding officer was em-
ployed. A woman was named as-
sistant to the Marine Director and
a female attorney was named as
an EEO investigator.

Lake View Plans Tourney
The Lake View Golf Club will
sponsor an 18-hole, medal play
invitational open tournament from
February 12 through February 15.
The tournament, open to all golfers,
will have four flights with prizes
going to three winners in each
flight. The entrance fee is $4.
For more information, call 52-

cent years, according to Super-
intendent of Schools David A.
Speir, that junior high schools
have undergone evaluation and it
is significant that Curundu earned
this recognition on its first try.
In February of 1975, teams of
professional educators visited each
of the three schools to study,
observe, and ask questions. The
written reports of these visits were
reviewed in every detail by the
Commission on Secondary Schools
of the Association to determine
whether or not to grant accredita-
One basis for the decision con-
cerns how well a school is judged
to accomplish its aims and ob-
jectives. The self-evaluation re-
quired prior to the visit serves as
the basis for the committee to
make commendations and recom-
mendations in this regard. The
second part of the evaluative pro-
cess is the determination by the
commission that the school meets
the required standards in philos-
ophy and objectives, curriculum,
educational media, guidance, health
services, student activities, physi-
cal facilities, and staff.
The next evaluation will be in
1985. Continued accreditation is
dependent on the schools demon-
strating substantial development in
all areas. Periodic reports which
must show progress being made in
accomplishing the recommenda-
tions of the visiting committee are
submitted to the commission.


Is Scheduled

For Feb. 21-22
More than 1,000 scouters, chil-
dren and adults, from the Canal
Zone and the Republic of Panama
are expected to participate in the
Scout-O-Rama to be held Feb-
ruary 21 and 22 at Balboa Stadium.
Members of the Canal Zone
Council, Boy Scouts of America,
have begun selling $1 tickets to the
2-day affair, which will begin with
a parade at 1:30 p.m., February 21,
in Balboa. Scouting units from the
Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts of
America, the International Boy
Scouts and Panama are preparing
booths with displays, demonstra-
tions and games to compete for
ribbons to be presented to units
with the best booths. Refreshments
will be on sale.
Following the parade, the Scout-
O-Rama will be officially inaugu-
rated at 3 p.m., when all booths
will be open and the Pinewood
Derby runoff will be staged for
Cub Scouts who have carved their
own derby entries. A separate area
in the stadium will be set aside
for Explorer posts participating in
the Scout-O-Rama.
One of the highlights of the pro-
gram will be a pageant entitled
"Festival U.S.A.," in commemora-
tion of the Nation's bicentennial.
This 2-hour show, beginning at
7 p.m., February 21, will trace the
history of the United States and
will feature music provided by a
combination Army and Air Force
band. It will be followed by a
fireworks display at 9 p.m.

Signed, sealed and delivered is testimony to the fact that Capt. Christian
J. Gundersen was an outstanding employee whose life was one of con-
tribution, dedication, accomplishment and service, both to the Panama
Canal Company and to the Isthmian community. For these achievements
Gov. H. R. Parfitt, right, presents Gundersen, who retired early this
month, with the Panama Canal Company's Distinguished Service Award.
At center is Gundersen's wife, Phyllis.

Captain Gundersen Cited

For Distinguished Service

As if to prove that Capt. Chris-
tian J. Gundersen is the exact
opposite of Hagar the Horrible,
the cartoon character for whom
he was nicknamed, a letter recom-
mending him for the Distinguished
Service Award characterizes him
as a "man who comes readily to
the aid of those in need without
being asked and . . . gives un-


'Si I~

Using models of a ship and tow-
boat, Panama Canal pilot Capt.
Robert L. McAuslin, right, fore-
ground, demonstrates the use of
tugs in ship assistance for one of
a series of training films for pilots
being produced by the Graphic
Branch for the Marine Bureau. At
rear are, from left: James E. Pat-
tison, chief of the Audiovisual Sec-
tion; George Bell, acting chief of
the Television Section; and camera-
man Alberto Acevedo. Subjects on
which training films have been
made include locks locomotives,
Canal radar navigation and ship
data cards. At left, the television
monitor gives a preview of the final

reservedly of himself and his
assistance in times of need to help
his fellowman."
Awarded at the close of an em-
ployee's career, the Panama Canal
Company's Distinguished Service
Award recognizes an employee's
performance on the job and con-
tributions to his community.
The Company's -highest award
was presented to Captain Gunder-
sen by Gov. H. R. Parfitt. The
certificate lists among his accom-
plishments the rewriting and up-
dating of the Pilot's Handbook,
the organization of the Pilot Train-
ing and Administrative Unit, the
development of a scheduling sys-
tem to regularize pilots' working
conditions, and his assistance in
the establishment of the Marine
Traffic Control System.
The certificate also cites the
captain as an outstanding employee
whose life has been one of con-
tribution, dedication, accomplish-
ment and service, both to the
Canal and to the community.
Captain Gundersen retired early
this month after more than 31
years of Federal service, 22 with
the Panama Canal.
Born in Norway, he went to live
in the United States at the age of
10 and considers New York City
his hometown.
He began his Canal career as a
pilot, first on the Atlantic side and
then on the Pacific.
In 1966, he was named Assistant
Port Captain, Balboa, and, after
setting up the Pilot Administration
and Training Unit, was named
chief of the unit.
At the time of his retirement,
he was Deputy Chief of the Tran-
sit Operations Division.
Captain Gundersen and his wife,
Phyllis, are making their retire-
ment home in El Valle at the end
of a street now identified with one
of his retirement gifts-a signpost
reading "Hagar's Alley," topped
with a Viking helmet.

Church Needs Color Slides
The Women's Auxiliary of the
Balboa Union Church is looking
for colored picture slides (hori-
zontal view) of Panama to review
for the 1977 calendar. Interested
persons may take their slides to
the church office before the Feb-
ruary 6 deadline. Those selected
will not be returned. For informa-
tion, call 52-2295.

proval of the Reverend Sylvanus

of directors of the Atlantic Home,
and Savage, chairman of admis-

Each morning, Hyams took
Wright to the home, where he

donned clean clothes and enjoyed
a warm bath, three nutritious
meals and companionship before
Hyams came to take him home for
the night.
After several weeks of this,
Wright at last agreed to stay.
When Ephraim Wright was

taken so much trouble, smiled and
said, "It's just another service of

Presidida por Victor V. Veysey,
la Directiva tiene programado un
calendario lleno de actividades,
que incluyen visits a instalacio-

parte de una gran disminuci6n en
el trafico de naves por la via in-
teroceAnica. La Directiva estA le-

medidas correctivas que se han
tomado hasta la fecha y explorando
otros medios para conseguir que
revierta esa tendencia.
AdemnAs de la reunion normal
del Comit de Presupuesto y Fi-
nanzas, el reci6n formado Comit6
de Political y Planeamiento, com-
puesto de cuatro miembros de la
Directiva, se reunira por primera
vez en el Istmo. La principal mi-
si6n de este comity es el estableci-
miento de la political a largo plazo
de la Compafia. Se espera que el
trabajo de este grupo cubra todas
las areas de la empresa del Canal,
estudiando la political existente y
recomendando las medidas que
scan necesarias para poder enfren-
tar los cambios en la economic y
en otras condiciones.
Los miembros de la Directiva se

i ente en la Noticia

Desde el 30 de Enero hasta el 5 de Febrero de 1976

Si en la ciudad de Col6n alguien
pregunta por Everett E. Dudley,
lo mAs probable es que contesten
que nadie lo conoce. Pero si se
pregunta por "Bepo" Dudley, en-
seguida le dirin que es un gran
saxofonista, que es muy apreciado
por su don de gentes y su espi-
ritu servicial y que trabaja en la
Division de Terminales del Canal
de Panama, en Crist6bal.
Bepo Dudley ha prestado ser-
vicios al Canal durante mis de
48 ainos, desde el 19 de julio de
1927, cuando ingres6 a la antigua
Division de MecAnica, hoy Divi-
si6n Industrial, como auxiliar de
oficina. Durante los 34 afios que
permaneci6 alli, fue mensajero en
motocicleta, ayudante de oficina,
apuntador de tiempo y oficinista
de contabilidad. En 1961 fue tras-
ladado a la Divisi6n de Termina-
les, donde actualmente desempefia
las funciones de oficinista encar-
gado de cuentas corrientes. En
1959 y en 1974 recibi6 premios
por su comportamiento en el
Naci6 en PanamA, pero su nifiez
y juventud las pas6 en el viejo
poblado de La Boca, en la Zona
del Canal. Es casado con la Sra.
Luisa Carlota de Dudley, graduada
en la Escuela Profesional de la
ciudad de PanamA y que despu6s
se especializ6 en alta costura y en
decoraci6n de pasteleria. Se active
much en el movimiento budista
de PanamA y recientemente repre-
sent6 al pais en convenciones in-
ternacionales del budismo, que
tuvieron lugar en Los Angeles,
California y en Honolulu, Hawai.
Tienen cuatro hijos. Evans, gra-
duado de t6cnico en contabilidad
en la Escuela de Artes y Oficios
Melchor Lasso de la Vega y que
trabaja como oficinista de sala en
el Hospital Gorgas; Yvonne, gra-
duada en el Instituto Tncnlco de
Contabilidad; el Lie. Emilio Dud-
ley, graduado en Administraci6n
Piblica en la Universidad de Pa-
namai y quien es supervisor de la
Secci6n de Auditoria del Ejdrcito
en Corozal y, finalmente, el Dr.
Eduardo Dudley, graduado en
Economia y Leyes con especializa-
ci6n en Economia de Finanzas en
la Universidad La Sorbona de
Paris y quien actualmente desem-
peiia una alta posici6n en el
Ministerio de Planificaci6n y Eco-
nomia Politica de la Republica de
Bepo Dudley estA muy orgulloso
de sus hijos, porque todos ellos
lucharon much para llegar a ser
lo que son, especialmente Eduardo,
quien apenas se gradu6 de secun-
daria en el Instituto Nacional de
PanamA, viaj6 a Paris donde estu-
di6 mediante grades sacrificios,
durante 12 aiios. Dice que el pri-
mer titulo que Eduardo obtuvo
fue en francs, para poder conti-
nuar estudiando sus otras carreras.
Bepo dice que tiene todas las
cosas que hacen feliz a un hom-
bre: Una magnifica esposa, cuatro
hijos que no pueden ser mejores,
un buen trabajo y una afici6n que
le Ileva todo su tiempo libre y lo
Ilcna de emoci6n: tocar el saxof6n
como solamente l6 sabe hacerlo.

Una base para tomar la deci-
si6n se refiere a lo bien que se
juzgue que la escuela cumple con
sus fines y objetivos. La auto-
evaluaci6n debe sefialar que la
escuela cumple con sus fines y
objetivos. La autoevaluaci6n que
se require antes de la visit le
sirve de base al comit6 para hacer
las comendaciones y recomenda-
clones al respect. La segunda
parte del pruceso de evaluaci6n
consiste en la determinaci6n por
la Comisi6n de que la escuela
cumple con los estAndares reque-
ridos en filosofia y objetivos, plan
de studios, medios educativos,
guia, servicios de salubridad, acti-
vidades estudiantiles, instalaciones
fisicas y personal.
La pr6xima evaluaci6n tendrA
lugar en 1985 y el que continue
la acreditaci6n dependera de que
las escuelas demuestren un ade-
lanto substantial en todas las
areas. Informes peri6dicos deberAn
demostrar que se hacen progress
en el cumplimiento de las reco-
mendaciones que el comit6 visi-
tante someti6 ante la comisi6n.
