Vol. XIV, No. 33

Aboard the Panama Canal tug "Chester Harding," Mrs. Kathryne Hard-
ing Deeble holds the wheel to show off the inscribed bracelet she
received in October 1970 when she was invited to New Orleans to
christen the new tug in the name of her father. Brig. Gen. Chester
Harding served as the second Governor of the Canal Zone from Jan-
uary 1917 to February 1921. It was Mrs. Deeble's first trip to the
Isthmus since she left as a young bride 55 years ago. She was
accompanied by her son, William.

2d Governor's Daughter

Recalls Zone of 1907

Kathryne Harding Deeble re-
turned to the Canal Zone last
week-69 years after her first trip
to the Isthmus.
As a 9-year-old school girl, she
first accompanied her parents to
the Canal Zone of construction
days when her father Maj. Chester
Harding was assigned as chief of
dredging and marine operations
of the Atlantic Division.
Her memories of those days are
vivid today: She attended Gatun
School and describes it as "a little
country school with all of the
classes in one room."
Most days her diary read:
"went to school a.m., went to
school p.m.; played with Mary."
She sang "The Little Town of
Bethlehem" in a school play.
The center of social life was
the top floor of the old Isthmian
Canal Commission building and
she recalls the entertainment one
night was a man who painted pic-
tures with his toes.
In 1913, Major Harding re-
turned to the States, but was back
in the Zone a year later as assist-
ant to the Governor and then En-
gineer of Maintenance. Kathryne
remained in boarding school.
She returned in 1916 just a few
months before her father, then
Brigadier General Harding, was
appointed the second governor of
the Canal Zone, replacing General
Now in the Governor's Man-
sion, she lived the life of a proper
young lady circa 1917-being
poled up the Chagres in cayucos
for picnics, sailing to Taboga,
taking riding lessons and, in the
evenings, attending balls and
dances and parties.
The ball she remembers best-

given for the Prince of Wales-
scandalized Isthmian society. Each
guest was sent a pass to the
Tivoli Hotel to insure that only
the elite of Panama and the Canal
Zone appeared before the Prince.
He danced the first dance with
the daughter of the British Am-
bassador, the second dance with

'Sick' Workers

Urged to Return

To Their Jobs
All Canal employees participat-
ing in an illegal "sickout" that
began earlier this week were urged
to return to their jobs by Gov.
H. R. Parfitt, who expressed his
deepest concern for their actions.
As of press time, approximately
700 key employees reported sick,
sharply cutting the transit capacity
of the Canal and impairing other
vital functions within the Canal
Zone. Governor Parfitt was par-
ticularly concerned with the high
absenteeism among teachers, which
resulted in the closing of all U.S.
schools in the Canal Zone.
Governor Parfitt had a number
of meetings with labor leaders and
urged them to prevail on those
participating in the sickout to re-
turn to their jobs.
The sickout was attributed to
opposition to personnel and wage
proposals now being considered,
such as raising the Canal Zone
wage base cutoff from NM-4 to
NM-6 and MG-10.
The Governor took note of the
fact that local labor leaders had
met with officials in Washington
to discuss the proposals and had
found many of them sympathetic
to their views. He added that any
illegal action being taken by those
employees not reporting for work
could have a negative effect by
alienating officials in Washington
who have shown a willingness to
support Canal workers.
Earlier this month, an appeal was
made by Representative Leonor K.
Sullivan, Chairman of the Com-
mittee on Merchant Marine and
Fisheries, U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives. Referring to the wage
base cutoff and freeze, she said,
"I am against such a proposal and
I think your representatives who
have been here in Washington,
along with the work that I and
some other members of Congress
have been doing have a very good

Detective Sgt. Richard H. Kinsey
was appointed to his present posi-
tion within the Balboa Detective
Office. Kinsey, with the division
since 1960, was a detective II
within the same office.
Sgt. Donald L. Nungester was
appointed to the detective II posi-
tion vacated by Kinsey. Nungester
joined the division upon separa-
tion from the military service
in 1964.
Two police officers were pro-
moted and have assumed new
responsibilities. Rodman Under-
hill, Jr., with 15 years as a patrol-
man in Cristobal, was promoted to
sergeant and Donald R. Rudy, Jr.,
was promoted from the uniform
ranks to detective.

Having a large family is cause
for great satisfaction but it also
means a life full of work and
privations to support it.
To be the father of 12 children
of whom 6 have become profes-
sionals and 2 more are on the
way to becoming professionals,
is quite an achievement, and one
that involves heavy expenses. And
when that same head of the family
is a janitor, the achievement takes
on even greater meaning.
Well, that is precisely what has
been done by Sebastian H. Lare-
mont, a janitor in the Community
Services Division who is currently
working at the Industrial Training
Center in Balboa Heights.
Laremont, who has more than
37 years of Federal service, came
to work for the Canal organiza-
tion in 1946 and since then has
spent all but 2 years working for
that division.
He was born in Martinique,
French Antilles. In 1913, shortly
after his birth, his family brought
him to Panama. Here he com-
pleted elementary and secondary
school and later taught for a while
at the St. Vincent de Paul School.
He was married in 1935 and
with the invaluable aid of his wife,
Ambrozine, he began the most
important work of his life: giving
their children a religious upbring-
ing in a home where one can sense
the love between parents and
These days, Laremont is espe-
cially proud because on May 3 his
son Benjamin, the third child, will
graduate as a doctor of medicine,
specializing in family medicine,
from the Meharry School of Med-
icine in Nashville, Tenn. But that
is not the first such satisfaction he
has known. Looking over the list
of his children's accomplishments,
one can see how hard he has
worked and the many rewards he
and his wife have received during
their life together.
Their eldest son, Dr. Sebastian
H. Laremont, Jr., is the director
of the San Miguelito Clinic. Claire,
now married, has a master's degree
in history and teaches high school
in Silver Creek, N.Y. Mary Ann
will obtain her degree in medicine
from the University of Guadala-
jara, Mexico, next year.
Alice is assistant manager of

There is no time for a trip to the hospital if a man is splashed with a
corrosive substance or acid while unloading or bunkering a ship. So the

Jones, Jr., a Terminals Division stevedore, turns the water on full force
to demonstrate how the eyewash works.

Accountant from the University of

Marie and Yvonne are married to

Michael, 18, is in the eleventh
grade at the Colegio Rem6n Can-

tituto de T6cnicas Especializadas.

Laremont has no university
degree but he reads extensively
and is extremely well-informed. At
present, his greatest desire is to

degree in medicine. His children

on Sunday afternoons those who
are hospitalized.

Surgery, Loving Care

Save 8/2-Foot Boa's Life

Ironsides has been discharged
from the hospital. Just 21 days
after Dr. Dann Beckley performed
emergency surgery to sew his
mutilated body back together, and
save his life.
In the same 21 days, Dawn
Gerrity became a heroine to the
second grade class she teaches at
the Fort Kobbe Elementary School,
and Ironsides became a class
mascot in absentia.
One sunny afternoon, Ironsides
was just a snake in the grass,
curled up in a hole and napping
after his bimonthly meal.
A few minutes later men held
him by his tail while their com-
panions slashed at him with ma-
chetes and battered him with
Jack Duval, a high voltage elec-
trician foreman with the Elec-
trical Division, was working in the
Madden Dam area that day. He
arrived on the scene in time to
stop the beating.
He put the nearly dead boa
constrictor in a basket and carried
it to Dawn Gerrity, a neighbor he
knew was a snake fancier.
Then action. A call to the vet-
erinarian to stand by, a dash to
the car, a quick trip to the Small
Animal Clinic at Corozal, and Iron-
sides was on the operating table.
With Miss Gerrity holding his
head, an SPCA volunteer his
middle and a veterinarian aide
his tail, Dr. Beckley did a quick,
probing examination.

Cristobal Little Theatre
Is Presenting 'Cinderella'
The story of "Cinderella" is
being presented at the Cristobal
Little Theatre at 7:30 p.m., to-
night and tomorrow. For reserva-
tions call 89-4066 after 6 p.m. and
43-1916 during the day.
"Cinderella" is a production
which can provide an evening of
entertainment for young and old,
The Cristobal Little Theatre is
located in France Field. It's the
first building on the right after
turning off Randolph Road, at the

He saw that Ironside's gashes
were so deep they almost cut
through his body. His head was
battered, his back broken, his
holding fangs destroyed, massive
bruises covered the length of his
8V2-foot long body, and dirt from
the heavy tree branches the men
had used as clubs was ground
into the wounds.
Before surgery could begin,
there was a lot of cleaning and
scrubbing inside and out, and the
body cavities were flushed out
with a saline solution.
Then slowly and skillfully, Dr.
Beckley began the risky job of
putting Ironsides together again.
Using a local anesthesia to
numb each area of the body as
he reached it, he closed the in-
side muscle areas first, sewed the
inside layers of flesh together next,
and then the outside scales.
During the 3-week recuperation
period, Ironsides was a model
patient and required little daily
care. Each day local anesthesia
was applied so his wounds could
be cleansed. Dr. Beckley knew
he had eaten shortly before he
was attacked and that snakes eat
only every 2 or 3 weeks so he
wasn't concerned that Ironsides
declined the mouse offered him at
meal time.
Over at the Fort Kobbe Ele-
mentary School, the second graders
provided the long distance tender
loving care to supplement Dr.
Beckley's skills. They said daily
prayers for Ironside's recovery,
drew Valentines and get-well cards
for him, and wrote notes to Miss
Gerrity thanking her "for being
nice to the snake."
By the end of 2 weeks, Dr.
Beckley knew that Ironsides would
recover completely when he began
to show the signs of restlessness
all patients show as soon as they
feel well enough to go home.
And at the end of the third
week, Mi;ss Gerrity was told she
could pick up her ward and re-
turn him to his jungle home.
Today, once again, Ironsides is
a happy snake in the grass.

SFi60 Employees Retire

-From Canal in February


Members of the Canal Zone Board of Appeals have
been in session I_-re for the past 2 weeks to hear
classification appeal cases of Federal employees of
Canal Zone agencies. The Board of Appeals is com-
posed of two members representing management,
two members representing labor, and a chairman
whose regular position is that of Chief of the Classi-

Governor's Daughter
(Continued from p. 1)
the Governor's daughter, Kathryne,
and every other dance with a
"blonde"-blonde takes on special
connotations said the way Mrs.
Deeble says it-that no one recog-
nized. It turned out that she was
not only the prettiest girl at the
ball, she was the only uninvited
girl at the ball-a gatecrasher who
turned out to be a young com-
missary cashier. The story of the
shopgirl who captured the Prince's
fancy for one evening was well
publicized in the local papers at
the time.
Kathryne married a young Army
officer in the Governor's Mansion
on April 14, 1920 and returned to
the States with him.
Today, Mrs. Deeble lives in
Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
In spite of a life of excitement
that began when she was only 9,
she says her biggest thrill was an
unexpected call she received 6
years ago inviting her to come to
New Orleans to christen a new
Panama Canal tug which was to
be named for her father. She still
wears the bracelet with a charm
engraved with an outline of the
tug "Harding" and the date Octo-
ber 12, 1970.
Mrs. Deeble's son, William, ac-
companied her on her vacation.
A highlight of her visit to the
Isthmus was a reunion in El Valle
with Mrs. Cecilia Espinosa de
Arias. Mrs. Deeble was maid of
honor at Mrs. Arias' wedding 55
years ago.

Vol. XIV, No. 33

Piden Regresar Coronel Albert L. Gore

A bordo del remolcador "Chester Harding" del Canal de Panama, la
Sra. Kathryne Harding Deeble toma la rueda del tim6n para mostrar
el brazalete que recibi6 en octubre de 1970 cuando fue invitada a
Nueva Orleans para bautizar el nuevo remolcador con el nombre de su
padre. El General de Brigada Chester Harding sirvi6 como segundo
Gobernador de la Zona del Canal de enero de 1917 a febrero de 1921.
Este ha sido el primer viaje de la Sra. Deeble al Istmo desde que parti6
recien casada hace 55 afios. Vino acompafiada por su hijo William.

Hiia del 2� Gobernador

Recuerda la Zona de 1907

Kathryne Harding Deeble re-
gres6 a la Zona del Canal la se-
mana pasada, 69 afios despues de
haber venido al Istmo por primera
Siendo a6n una escolar de 9
afios de edad, vino con sus padres
a la Zona del Canal de los dias
de la construcci6n, cuando su pa-
dre, el Mayor Chester Harding,
fue puesto a cargo de las opera-
ciones marinas y de dragado en
la Divisi6n del AtlAntico.
Todavia recuerda vividamente
esos dias: Asisti6 a la Escuela de
Gat6n antes de que fuera termi-
Su padre le regal un diario y
en la mayoria de los dias se lee:
"fui a la escuela por la maiiana,
y por la tarde, jugue con Mary".
El centro de la vida social es-
taba en el piso superior del viejo
edificio de la Comisi6n del Canal
Istmico y recuerda que la atrac-
ci6n de una noche consisti6 en un
hombre que pintaba con los dedos
de los pies.
En 1913, el Mayor Harding re-
gres6 a los Estados Unidos. Re-
gres6 a la Zona del Canal 1 afio
despu6s, para ser ayudante del
Gobernador y luego Ingeniero de
Mantenimiento, pero Kathryne se
qued6 internal en una escuela.
Regres6 en 1916, unos pocos
meses antes de que su padre,
ahora General de Brigada Hard-
ing, fue nombrado segundo gober-
nador de la Zona del Canal, en
reemplazo del General Goethals.
Esta vez en la Mansi6n del
Gobemador, llev6 la vida propia
de una damita de 1917, subiendo
el Rio Chagres en cayucos impul-
sados por palanqueros para me-
riendas al aire libre, yendo a Ta-
boga y asistiendo a bailes y fiestas.
El baile que mejor recuerda,
en honor del Principe de Gales,
escandaliz6 a la sociedad del Ist-
mo. A cada invitado se le envi6
un pase que debia presentar a la

entrada para ser admitido, con el
fin de que s61o la flor y nata de
Panama y la Zona del Canal se
presentara ante el principle. El

El Gobernador sefial6 que los
lideres sindicales locales se ha-

Washington para discutir estas

Tener una familiar numerosa es
motive de gran satisfacci6n pero
tambi6n significa toda una vida de
trabajo y de privaciones para
poder sostenerla.
Ser padre de 12 hijos, lograr
que 6 de ellos sean profesionales
y 2 est6n en process de llegar a
serlo, es algo sumamente merito-
rio y exige fuertes erogaciones.
Pero si el jefe de esa familiar no
es mis que un humilde trabajador,
aseador para ser mis precisos, la
empresa se convierte en algo ad-
Pues, eso es precisamente lo
que ha hecho un empleado del
Canal de Panama, Sebastian H.
Laremont, aseador en la Divisi6n
de Servicios Comunales y que ac-
tualmente presta servicios en la
Escuela de Adiestramiento Indus-
trial de Balboa.
Laremont lleva mas de 37 aiios
al servicio del Gobierno de los
Estados Unidos. Desde el 25 de
octubre de 1946 ha trabajado para
el Canal de PanamA. De esos 30
afios, s6lo dos los pas6 fuera de
la Division donde estA empleado

Martinica, Antillas Franceses. En

tro en la Escuela San Vicente de.
Pail. El 16 de enero de 1935
contrajo matrimonio con la Sra.
Ambrozine S. de Laremont y, con
la valiosisima ayuda de ella co-
menz6 la tarea mis important de
su vida: criar y educar a sus hijos
en un hogar que se distingue por
su religiosidad y por el cariiio que
se profesan entire padres y her-
En estos dias, Laremont estf
muy orgulloso porque el 30 de
mayo su hijo Benjamin recibirA su
titulo de Doctor en Medicina, con
especializaci6n en medicine fami-
liar, en la Escuela de Medicina
Meharry, en Nashville, Tennessee.
Pero no es esa la primera satis-
facci6n de esa indole que ha te-
nido en su vida. Con s61o enu-
merar los logros de sus hijos, se
puede ver lo duro que ha traba-
jado y las innumerables satisfac-
ciones que 61 y su esposa han
recibido a lo largo de su vida
matrimonial. El mayor de sus hi-

Dr. Beckley, el dia en que Ironsides fue dado de alta
en la clinic, Euribiades "Chiriqui" Araya, auxiliar
de veterinaria y Dawn Gerrity, "aficionada a las cule-
bras" que llev6 la boa, toda golpeada y mutilada a la
clinic, en busca de la ayuda que le salv6 la vida.

Ironsides (se pronuncia "Airon-
saids" en espafiol), ha sido dado
de alta en el hospital. S61o han
pasado 21 dias desde que el Dr.
Dann Beckley le hizo una opera-
ci6n para coser su cuerpo todo
mutilado y salvarle la vida.
Durante esos mismos 21 dias,
Dawn Garrity se convirti6 en una
heroina para sus alumnos del se-
gundo grado de la Escuela Pri-
maria de Fuerte Kobbe, y Iron-
sides pas6 a ser "en ausencia" la
mascot de la clase.
Una tarde de sol, Ironsides era
s6lo una culebra que se habia
enroscado en un agujero, medio
cubierto por la hierba, donde
echaba su suefiito despuds de su
comida de cada 2 semanas.
Pocos minutes despues, unos
hombres la agarraron por la cola,
mientras otros la macheteaban y
le daban de palos.
Jack Duval, capataz electricista
de alto voltage con la Divisi6n de
Electricidad trabajaba en el Area
de la Represa Madden ese dia.
Lleg6 a tiempo para detener el
Coloc6. la casi muerta boa cons-
trictor en una canasta y la llevo
a done Dawn Gerrity, una veci-
na "aficionada a las culebras".
Enseguida ella entr6 en action.
Llam6 al veterinario para quo
estuviera preparado, corri6 al
autom6vil, hizo un rApido viaje
hasta la Clinica de Pequefios Ani-
males en Corozal y Ironsides
qued6 lista para operar.
MIientras ]a Srta. Gerrity le sos-
tenia la cabeza, una voluntaria
de la Sociedad Protectora de Ani-
males sostenia la parte central y

La historic de "La Cenicienta"
esta siendo presentada en el Tea-
trito de Crist6bal, a las 7:30 p.m.,
hoy y mafiana. Para reservaciones
se debe lamar al 89-4066, des-
piis de las 6 p.m. y al 43-1916
durante el dia.
"La Cenicienta" es una produc-
cion que proporciona una noche
de entretenimiento para j6venes y
adults por igual.
El Teatrito de Crist6bal estA
situado en France Field. Es el
primer edificio a la derecha des-
pins de salir de la Carretera Ran-
dolph en el lugar donde esta la

un auxiliar de veterinaria la cola.
el Dr. Beckley le hizo un rApido
Vio que las cortadas que tenia
Ironsides eran tan profundas que
casi le atravesaban el cuerpo. La
cabeza estaba aplastada, el lomo
partido, los dientes destruidos, a
todo lo largo del cuerpo de 8Vz
pies de largo habia grandes ma-
gulladuras y el polvo de las pe-
sadas ramas de Arboles que los
hombres habian usado como palos
se habia enterrado en las heridas.
Antes de que comenzara la ope-
raci6n, habia que limpiar much,
por dentro y por fuera y las ca-
vidades del cuerpo fueron lim-
piadas a presi6n con una soluci6n
Entonces, lenta y diestramente,
el Dr. Beckley comenzo el trabajo
de remendar a Ironsides.
Usando anestesia local, para in-
sensibilizar cada Area del cuerpo
a media que Ilegaba, cerr6 pri-
mero las Areas musculares, des-
puds las diferentes capas de car-
ne y finalmente, la piel exterior.
Durante el period de recupe-
raci6n de 3 semanas, Ironsides fue
model de pacientes y necesit6
poco cuidado. Todos los dias se
le aplicaba anestesia local para
lavarle las heridas. El Dr. Beckley
sabia que habia comido antes de
ser atacada y que las culebras
come s6lo cada 2 6 3 semanas,
asi que no se preocup6 cuando
Ironsides despreciaba el rat6n que
se le ofrecia en la hora de comida.
En la Escuela Primaria de Fuer-
te Kobbe, los alumnos de segundo
grado proporcionaban carifiosa
atenci6n a larga distancia com-
plementando la destreza del Dr.
Beckley. Rezaban todos los dias
por la mejoria de Ironsides, dibu-
jaron tarjetas deseAndole que se
mejorara y le escribieron notas a
la Srta. Gerrity, dAndole las gra-
cias "por haber sido amable con
la boa". Al final de 2 semanas,
el Dr. Beckley se convenci6 de
que Ironsides se recuperaria com-
pletamente, pues comenz6 a dar
las muestras de inquietud de to-
dos los pacientes cuando se sien-
ten 1o suficientemente bien como
para irse a casa.
Al final de la tercera semana,
sc le dijo a la Srta. Gerrity que
ya podia recoger a su paciente y
regresarla a su hogar en la sclva.
Hoy, Ironsides es una boa feliz
en libertad.
