Vol. XIV, No. 37

Friday, April 23, 1976

E. C. Keeney Succeeds

Kovel as New Treasurer

Cecil Kovel, who began his
career as a meat cutter in the
Commissary Division 30 years ago
and worked his way up to the
position of Panama Canal Treas-
urer, has retired. Succeeding him
is Earl C. Keeney, also a longtime
employee of the Canal organiza-
tion who served as Assistant Treas-
urer for almost 5 years.
Kovel and his wife, Edna, left
last Saturday for Sarasota, Fla.,
where they will make their retire-
ment home. Mrs. Kovel was with
the Graphic Branch for 17 years
and retired last month with more
than 26 years of Canal service.
The Canal's new Treasurer was
boin at Grandville, Mich., and
attended schools there and the
Cedar Lake Academy at Cedar
Lake, Mich. He studied organ with
the instructor at Michigan State
University at East Lansing and
completed additional studies at
Boston University, Boston, Mass.
Keeney was employed for 7 years
as a fingerprint expert with the
Michigan State Police at East
Lansing and after serving with
the Navy from 1944 to 1948, he
went to work for the Panama
Canal as an accounting clerk in
the Accounting Division. Next, he
worked briefly in the Claims
Branch and in 1950 transferred to
the Treasurer's Office, where he
has served under five different
treasurers. He worked as a vault
clerk, collector, teller, assistant to
the treasurer and in 1971 was
promoted to Assistant Treasurer.
Keeney is a member of the
chapter of the Cathedral of St.
Luke and served as organist from
1948 until early this year. He
also was active in the former com-
munity chorus and other musical
activities. He is a charter member
and a past dean of the Isthmian
chapter of the American Guild of
Organists and belongs to the Audu-
bon Society and the Camera Club.
One of his favorite pastimes is
gardening around his quarters in
As the Canal's treasurer, Keeney
will serve also as treasurer of the
Canal Zone Chapter of the Amer-
ican Red Cross, the Heart Asso-
ciation and Cancer Committee.
He and his wife, Ida, who is
from Boyne City, Mich., have three
children: Brian and Janet, who
attend Michigan Technological
University at Houghton, Mich.,
and Ronald, who is employed as
an auditor in the General Audit
Division of the Office of the
Financial Vice President.

Earl C. Keeney

Stepping into Keeney's former
position as Assistant Treasurer is
Robert Q. Won, who has been
with the Canal organization since
October 1971, when he was em-
ployed with the Supply Division
as a retail store assistant manager.
Born in Canton, China, Won
was taken to the United States by
his parents when he was about
1 year old. He has spent most of
his life in New York City, where
he attended schools, including

New Law Grants Bicentennial Observance

Vote to U.S. * I . I ,L

Citizens Here
U.S. citizens residing in the
Canal Zone who have lived in the
United States but no longer main-
tain official residence there may
now vote in Federal elections
under the Overseas Citizens Voting
Rights Act of 1975 signed into law
this year by President Ford.
Persons in this category who
have a valid U.S. passport or Card
of Identity and Registration issued
under the authority of the Sec-
retary of State may vote by ab-
sentee ballot in the State in which
they were last domiciled imme-
diately prior to their departure
from the United States. An in-
dividual need not have a home
address in or intend to return to
that State in order to vote there.
He must comply, however, with
that State's other registration and
voting requirements, such as meet-
ing voting deadlines.
J. Winter D. Collins, the Pan-
ama Canal voting officer, will pro-
vide information on dates of elec-
tions, registration, state deadlines
for receiving absentee ballot appli-
cations and the marking of the
absentee ballot.
He will also mail a Federal Post
Card Application for Absentee
Ballot to persons who call 52-3229
and leave their name and address.
Collins' office is located in Build-
ing 449-X, Ancon.

Rainy Season Expected

To Begin Within Week

The rainy season is expected to
begin during the last week of
April, according to the Meteoro-
logical and Hydrographic Branch
experts who state that we have
already entered the 3-week long
transitional period.
A number of light showers have
been reported at various locations
across the Isthmus and a few
heavy downpours have been noted.
But this does not mean that rainy
season is here.
Since 1972, Met and Hyd fore-
casters have relied on a number
of parameters as a firmer means
of determining the changes in
seasons. Some of these are ob-
vious, such as the rise in the eleva-
tion of Gatun Lake and the amount
of daily rainfall. The precipitation
is measured over the 20 telemeter-
ing rain gages at various locations
across the Isthmus. The weather-
men look for a daily average rain-
fall of more than .3 inch as one
indicator of the coming of rainy
Another parameter is the hourly
average wind speed, which usually
falls to less than 11 miles per hour
during rainy season. Sea breezes
that come from the south for
periods totaling at least 3 hours a
day are another indication.
Other parameters taken into con-
sideration include: the Pacific sea
temperature, particularly when it
rises above 800F; increase in
moisture content in the air below
12,000 feet altitude; and the ap-
proach of the Inter Tropical Con-
vergence Zone to within 100 miles
of the Isthmus, as determined by
satellite photos.
These factors, taken into con-

sideration as a group rather than
individually, give the weathermen
a reasonably accurate indication of
changes in the season.
Newcomers to the area who find
the current heat oppressive will be
happy to know that April is nor-
mally the warmest month and the
time when the highest individual
temperatures of the year are
recorded. The cooling showers that
can be expected next month
should be a welcome change for

ment agencies on the Isthmus.
Appointments made under this
year's program will be limited to

Gi' of the Panama Canal Mluseum

More Than 60 Years of Service to World Commerce


April 23, 1976

People in the News

Most suggestions generate savings in time or money. A rare suggestion
produces increased revenues. For a suggestion that does increase the
Panama Canal organization's yearly revenues, Peter W. Foster received
a Suggestion Award Certificate and a check for $1,040-the second
highest monetary award made in the past 10 years. Foster suggested
that commercial telephone companies be charged for the use of the
Panama Canal's telephone system as a part of their network for inter-
national toll services. When it was adopted, the Canal company's
revenues were increased by $67,860 yearly. Foster, a communications
specialist with the Electrical Division, also qualifies for the Presidential
Recognition Award.

Former C.Z. Teacher Gives

Ala. Town New Piano

The Dothan, Ala., Opera House
has a new $13,000 concert grand
piano, thanks to the generosity of
Sue Core Odom, who with her
late husband, Dr. John D. Odom,
was a resident of the Canal Zone
for more than 30 years.
According to a feature story in
a recent edition of the Dothan
Eagle, the piano was formally
dedicated as the Sue Odom Piano
at a ceremony preceding a concert
by famed pianist Leonidas Lipo-
vetsky. Mrs. Odom was presented
to the audience that evening and
was enthusiastically applauded as
she went out onto the stage
dressed in a Panamanian pollera.
After she commented on the po-
llera, she explained how she came
to the decision to donate the
piano, saying that she had been
saving up to buy a new car when
she heard about the fund drive to
acquire the piano. "I thought of
the joy, happiness and inspiration
the piano would bring thousands
and thousands of people even into
the next century," Mrs. Odom
At the ceremony, Dothan's
Mayor Jimmy Grant commended
Mrs. Odom, remarking, "I think
you're just one of the most graci-
ous ladies I have ever known.
Thank God we have people like
In addition to the grand piano,
Mrs. Odom has donated many
outstanding gifts to the commu-
nity. Among these are 85 acres of
land to The Haven, the Christian
Rehabilitation Center, and the in-
tensive care coronary unit to the
Southeastern Alabama General
Mrs. Odom taught school in the
Canal Zone for more than 30 years.
She also was a frequent lecturer
on Isthlmian history and folklore
and during World War II con-
ducted tours for servicemen. She
also wrote a daily column in a
Panama paper for many years.
Known professionally as Sue,
Core, she has written 18 books
and has donated the proceeds

from several of these publications
to organizations such as the Heart
Fund, Cancer Clinic fund, Gladio-
lus Garden Club and Dothan's
Boy's Club. Among her best
known books are "Children of the
Cruces Trail," "Kris Kringle at
the Crossroads," "Panama for
Young Folks," "Christmas on the
Isthmus," "The Burial of the Fish,"
and "Panama Yesterday and
Prior to her departure from the
Isthmus in 1952, she was pre-
sented the Order of Balboa by the
Panama Government.

Dermatology Clinic Moved
The Dermatology Clinic at
Gorgas Hospital has been moved
from its old location in the Medical
Clinic, Section B, Building 253.
Patients with dermatology ap-
pointments now should go to the
new location, which is at the Out-
patient Clinic, Main Building,
Building 254.

Ren6 Van Hoorde, Assistant
Chief of the Electrical Division,
and his family are well known in
Panama City, but are equally pro-
minent in the Canal Zone, where
his father, brother and sister are
also employed.
Ren6's father, Guillermo Van
Hoorde, is construction inspector
for the Construction Division. His
older brother, Guillermo, Jr., an
industrial engineer, is Chief of the
Programs Evaluation Staff of the
Planning Division, and his sister,
Annette Van Horde de Aroseme-
na, is supervisor at the Gorgas
Hospital Blood Bank.
Rene joined the Electrical Divi-
sion in 1971 as an electrical engi-
neer, a position he held until Octo-
ber 1974 when he was promoted
to his present post. As assistant
division chief, Ren6 says he has
lived the petroleum crisis which
has had a tremendous impact on
the electrical operation. "Now we
have to think much more about
the best utilization of hydroelec-
tric energy to keep down the
costs," he says, adding, "We also
have to try to use the most in-
expensive sources of energy, such-
as water vapor." Ren6 notes the
importance of maintaining a close
working relationship with the Pan-
amanian Institute of Hydraulic Re-
sources and Electrification (IRHE)
with whom the Canal exchanges
energy during critical times.
Born in Panama City, Rene was
graduated from La Salle School
in 1963 and attended the Missouri
State University at Columbia, from
which he was graduated magna
cum laude in 1967 as an electrical
engineer. He obtained his master's
degree in industrial engineering
2 years later. Returning to Pan-
ama, he served as production man-
ager at Cemento PanamA for 2
years, after which he was hired
by the Canal organization.
Van Hoorde is vice president of
the Canal Zone Society of Profes-
sional Engineers and is a member
of the Union Club in Panama.
During his free time he plays
tennis and enjoys traveling by car
with his family throughout the
Republic. He has chosen Sori, a
little village in the Province of
PanamA, as his favorite spot be-
cause of its climate and peaceful
He lives in La Alameda in Pan-
ama City with his wife, the former
Lupe Ycaza, and two children:
Ren6, Jr., 7, a student at La Salle
School, and Annette Marie, 3.

Upon his promotion to District Fire Commander, Northern District,
Capt. C. O. Flores receives his new badge from Fire Chief Frank
Berry. Flores, who lhas been captain of the Balboa Station since July
1975, joined the Fire I)ivision in 1951. Ten years later he transferred
to the Customs IDivision where lie worked until 1971 when he returned
to the Fire Division as a sergeant. lie was promoted to lieutenant in
1973 and to senior lieutenant in 1975.

Parents Warned


Risky to Kids
A sharp rise in broken bones,
chipped teeth, cuts and bruises and
other injuries are the aftermath of
youngsters using skateboards, the
latest new toy that has become
popular in the Canal Zone.
Parents are urged to warn their
children of the hazards involved
in skateboarding both to the pub-
lic and to the user of the skate-
board. They are considered so
dangerous that some states have
banned their sale.
Youngsters using skateboards
should not use them on main
thoroughfares or other congested
areas. They should not hitch rides
on the back of cars and trucks.
Coasting down dangerous inclines
or out of driveways into the street
are hazardous practices. So are
skateboarding at night and ex-
cessive speeds.
Leaving skateboards lying around
on sidewalks, walkways and stairs
are not only a nuisance but also
dangerous to people who use these
Youngsters using skateboards
are urged to avoid these danger-
ous practices and to consider the
rights of others. The use of com-
mon sense will contribute to en-
suring well-being for the skater,
his family and the community in

Se Esperan las Lluvias

Para el Fin de Mes

Se espera que la estaci6n llu-
viosa comience durante la iltima
semana de abril de acuerdo con
los experts del Ramo de Meteoro-
logia e Hidrografia, quienes dicen
que ya nos encontramos en un pe-
riodo de transici6n de alrededor
de 3 semanas de duraci6n.
Desde 1972, los pronosticadores
del Ramo de Meteorologia e Hi-
drografia se han basado en una
cantidad de factors como medios
mis seguros para determinar los
cambios de estaci6n. Algunos son
obvious, como el alza en el nivel
del Lago Gatin y la cantidad de
precipitaci6n pluvial diaria. La
precipitaci6n pluvial se mide por
nedio de 20 pluvi6metros a con-
trol remote que se encuentran en
diferentes localidades. Los pronos-
ticadores quedan a la espera de
una precipitaci6n pluvial diaria
promedio de .3 de pulgada como
una de las indicaciones de la lle-
gada de la estaci6n Iluviosa.
Otro indicio es el promedio de
la velocidad del viento por hora,
que por lo general baja a menos
de 11 millas por hora durante la
estaci6n iluviosa. Vientos del mar,
procedentes del sur durante pe-
riodos de por lo menos 3 horas
en total al dia, son otra serial.
Otros factors que se toman en
consideraci6n incluyen: la tempe-
ratura del agua en el Pacifico,
particularmente cuando pasa de
los 800F; aumento en la hume-
dad del aire por debajo de una
altura de 12,000 pies y el acerca-
miento de la Zona de Convergen-
cia Intertropical a menos de 100
mills del Istmo, lo que se deter-
mina por medio de las fotos del
satelite meteorol6gico.
Estos indices, tomados en con-
sideraci6n como grupo, mis bien
que individualmente, suministran

una indicaci6n razonablemente
exacta de los cambios de estaci6n.
Los que han llegado reciente-
mente y encuentran que el calor
que hay en estos dias es muy fuer-
te, se alegrarin de saber que, nor-
malmente, abril es el mes mis
caliente del afio y es cuando se
registran las temperatures indivi-
duales mis altas. RecibirAn con
much gusto los refrescantes agua-
ceros del mes entrante.

sonas hasta en el pr6ximo siglo",
dijo la Sra. Odom.
En la ceremonia, el Alcalde de
Dothan Jimmy Grant alab6 a la
Sra. Odom diciendo: "Creo que
usted es una de las damas mais
gentiles que jamAs he conocido.
Gracias a Dios que hay personas
como usted".

ente en la Noticia

La familiar de Rend Van Hoorde,
Ayudante del Jefe del Ramo de
Generaci6n de Energia Elctrica
de la Divisi6n de Electricidad, es
muy conocida en los circulos so-
ciales de la ciudad de PanamA.
Pero quizAs sea mas conocida
en el Canal, pues tanto su padre
como sus hermanos trabajan para
la via interoceanica.
Su padre, Guillermo Van Hoorde,
es inspector de construcciones en
la Division de Construcci6n. Su
hermano mayor, Guillermo Van
Hoorde, Jr., ingeniero industrial,
es Jefe del Grupo de Evaluaci6n
de Programs en la Oficina de Pla-
nificaci6n del Canal y su hermana,
Sra. Annette Van Hoorde de Aro-
semena, es supervisor del Banco
de Sangre del Hospital Gorgas.
Ren6 ingres6 a la empresa del
Canal en 1971, como ingeniero
el6ctrico en la Divisi6n de Elec-
tricidad. Permaneci6 en esa posi-
ci6n hasta el 2 de octubre de
1974, cuando fue ascendido al
puesto que actualmente ocupa. Es
una posici6n muy delicada y con
muchas responsabilidades. Dice
que en su posici6n le ha tocado
vivir la crisis del petr6leo que en
unos cuantos afios ha quintupli-
cado el precio de ese element.
Ello ha tenido un tremendo im-
pacto en las operaciones de nues-
tro ramo. Ahora tenemos que pen-
sar much mas en la mAxima uti-.
lizaci6n de la energia hidroelectri-
ca para abaratar los costs" y
agrega "tambien tratamos de uti-
lizar otras fuentes de energia mls
econ6micas, como el vapor de
agua". Dice tambien que otra de
sus grandes preocupaciones es tra-
bajar lo mAs estrechamente posi-
ble con el Instituto de Recursos Hi-
draulicos y Electrificaci6n (IRHE),
de la Repiblica de Panama.
Nacido en la ciudad de Pana-
ma, se gradu6 de secundaria en
el Colegio La Salle en 1963. Ese
mismo aijo ingres6 en la Univer-
sidad del Estado de Missouri, en
Columbia, donde se gradu6 "mag-
na cum laude" como ingeniero
el6ctrico en 1967. Sigui6 studios
de post grado y en 1969, poseia
dos maestrias una en ingenieria
electrica y otra en ingenieria in-
dustrial. A su regreso a la patria,
fue gerente de producci6n de Ce-
mcnto PanamA durante 2 afios, al
final de los cuales ingres6 al Canal
de PanamA.
El Ing. Van Hoorde es vicepre-
sidente de la Sociedad de Inge-
nieros Profesionales de la Zona
del Canal. Es miembro del Club
Uni6n de la ciudad de PanamA.
Van Hoorde es casado con la
Sra. Lupe Ycaza de Van Hoorde
y tienen dos hijos: Ren6, Jr., de
7 afios, que esti en primer grado
en el Colegio La Salle, y Annette
Marie, de s6lo 3 afios. Residen en
la Urbanizaci6n La Alameda de
la ciudad de PanamA.

Al moment de ser ascendido a Comandante del Distrito Norte de la
Division de Bomberos, el CapitAn G. O. Flores recibe su placa de manos
del Jefe de la Divisi6n Frank Berry. Flores, quien ha sido capitAn en la
Estaci6n de Balboa desde julio de 1975, entr6 a la Divisi6n de Bombe-
ros en 1951. Diez afios despues fue trasladado a la Divisi6n de Aduanas
donde trabaj6 hasta 1971, cuando regres6 a la Divisi6n de Bomberos
como sargento. Fue ascendido a teniente en 1973 y a primer teniente
en el afio de 1975.

Previenen Sobre

El Peligro de

Los Patinetes
Un s6bito aumento en fractures
de huesos, dientes astillados, cor-
tadas y contusiones, ademas de
otras lesiones, ha sido el resultado
de los jovencitos que andan en
patinetes, el mas reciente de los
juguetes que han adquirido popu-
laridad en la Zona del Canal.
Se exhorta a los padres que ad-
viertan a sus hijos sobre los peli-
gros que represent el montar pa-
tinetes, tanto para el piblico como
para los que los usan. Son consi-
derados tan peligrosos que algunos
Estados han prohibido su venta.
Los j6venes que usan patinetes
no deben usarlos en las calls
principles u otras Areas conges-
tionadas. No deben agarrarse de
la parte trasera de autos o camio-
nes. El deslizarse por pendientes
de much declive o de las entra-
das de los garages a la calle es
sumamente peligroso, al igual que
usar dichos patinetes de noche.
El dejar los patinetes en las ace-
ras, entradas de garages o escale-
ras, no s61o es una molestia sino
un verdadero peligro para las per-
sonas que utilizan dichas Areas.
Se exhorta a los j6venes que
juegan en patinetes a que eviten
estas prActicas peligrosas y que
considered el derecho de los de-
mis. El uso del sentido com6n
contribuira al bienestar de ellos
mismos, de su familiar y de la
comunidad en general.
