Robert Lessiack and Oliver L.
Riesch, two officials of the Canal's
Office of the Financial Vice Pres-
ident, are ending their long careers
with the organization this month
and departing the Isthmus to make
their retirement homes in the
United States. Prior to their de-
parture they were presented Out-
standing Performance Awards by
Financial Vice President Philip L.
Steers, Jr.
Robert Lessiack, assistant Finan-
cial Vice President of the Panama
Canal since January 1973, joined
the Canal organization in 1947 as
a graduate trainee. A native of
New Jersey, he was graduated from
Bucknell University, Lewisburg,

service with the rank of captain.
Prior to joining the Canal orga-
nization, he was employed as a
junior auditor by a nationally
known public accounting firm.
Upon completion of his graduate
trainee program, he was a cost
and budget accountant and then
became an internal auditor. In
1953, he became a budget analyst
in the Budget Branch and pro-
gressed to the position of chief of
the branch in 1958. Going up the
ladder of promotions, he was
appointed Assistant Comptroller-
Budget and Rates in January 1964.
He leaves the Canal with more
than 32 years of Government serv-
ice to his credit.
He and his wife, Katherine, will
make Kerrville, Tex., one of their
first stops to look around for a re-
tirement home. A daughter, Ms.
Susan Stabler, is a teacher on the

A mile out at sea, Panama Canal
boarding officer Kathleen Moore is
hoisted 100 feet straight up to
board the ladderless oil rig "Santa
Fe Mariner 3." A crane lowered
the "basket"-net attached to a life
raft-to the launch, Ms. Moore
stepped up and hung on for dear
life as winds swung her back and
forth past the rig three times be-
fore bringing the basket to rest on
a heliopad. Ms. Moore is the
Canal's only woman boarding offi-
cer. The "Santa Fe Mariner 3" was
transitting the Canal on her maiden
voyage, which took her from
Tacoma, Wash., to Trinidad.

Dutch consortium considered to be
acceptable from the 11 firms which
responded to requests for proposals
sent out the past August to more
than 100 potential.bidders around
the world.
In accordance with the contract,
Hakodate is to build the 15-cubic
yard non-self propelled diesel elec-
tric power dipper dredge and
deliver it to Canal Zone waters in
16 months following the signing of
the contract.
The basic design will center on
a self contained shovel machine
mounted on a barge hull with
main and auxiliary power supplied.
The new dredge will be about 150
feet long and between 60 and 73
feet in width with a 16-foot draft
and a lifting capacity of 250,000
pounds. It will be capable of ex-
cavating 60 feet below the water
The new dredge will serve as
the Canal's primary dipper dredge,
replacing the obsolete 13-cubic
yard Paraiso, which has played an
important part in all major dredg-
ing activities since the early days
of the Canal through the widening
of Gaillard Cut. In the 1950's, the
Paraiso was loaned to the Corps of
Engineers for use in the construc-
tion of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
It has been out of service for the
past 3 years.
The Cascadas, which is still in
the Canal's active fleet, will be-
come the standby dredge.

Almost everybody has some sort
of hobby. But Xenia Mas de Ver-
gara, supervisory physical therapist
at Gorgas Hospital, is one who
cannot seem to find time. She has
all she can handle, working and
keeping house for her husband and
three small children.
"Mini Mas" as she is fondly
known by her friends and co-
workers, was born in Panama City,
attended school there and was
graduated from high school in
1961. She then went to the United
States and in 1963 received an
associate in arts degree from
Sacred Heart College in Cullman,
Ala. In 1966, she was graduated
from St. Louis University, St.
Louis, Mo., with a bachelor of
science degree in physical therapy.
After graduation she returned to
the Isthmus and was for several
years employed in the Physical
Therapy Department of the Social
Security Hospital in Panama. Five
years ago she joined the staff at
Gorgas Hospital as a physical
therapist and was promoted last
April to the supervisory position
she now holds. She has success-
fully completed two Panama Canal
training courses on supervision,
which she admits have been very
valuable to her in' her work.
Mini remarks that as a therapist
for the past 10 years she has
derived great satisfaction from con-
tributing in some way to the re-
habilitation of patients who have
come to her with serious physical
handicaps, and sometimes, with a
long history of pain and suffering.
Commenting on the training and
qualifications of the physical thera-
pist, she points out that in addi-
tion to professional skills and ex-
perience, the therapist should have
the qualities of compassion, pa-
tience, understanding and initia-
tive. Also, a therapist should en-
deavor to instil in the patient a
sense of security and protection
without showing pity or other signs
of weakness, which in no way help
Commenting further on the prob-
lems. confronting the rehabilitated
patients, she remarked that the
biggest problem is the lack of op-
portunities offered to these indi-
viduals for earning their livelihood.
She is hopeful that Panama will
soon have government sponsored
workshops that will offer work
opportunities to amputees, victims
of polio and strokes, and other
handicapped individuals, so they
can be incorporated into the pro-
ductive community.
Held in high esteem by her co-
workers, one of them, Eligio Oca-
fia, a physical therapist, says of
Mini: "Throughout the years, day
after day, in and out of the hos-
pital, we have learned to know
and esteem Mini as a supervisor,
coworker and as a friend. She has
all the qualities of a model super-

In an effort to improve service
to customers, the Motor Transpor-
tation Division has put into opera-
tion an automatic tread builder
used in recapping tires. The new
equipment will minimize delays in
this service.
Another new procedure at the
Tire Shop stipulates that MTD will
no longer guarantee cost free re-
placement recaps for recap failures.
An adjustment system has been
implemented to charge for the re-
tread material that has worn off the
tire between the time the tire was
recapped by MTD and the time
the tire failure occurred. There
will be a charge for the retread
but credit will be given for the
tread remaining on the tire. To
determine how much retread is
left on the tire, it is measured at
the Tire Shop and a percentage is
calculated to determine the amount
the customer will be credited for a
replacement retread.
Recapping failures are not neces-
sarily the fault of the workman-
ship. Many other factors may cause
recap failures; one of which is the
condition of material used in re-
In order to reduce delays in
service to Atlantic side customers
who have tires recapped at the
Ancon Tire Shop through the Cris-
tobal garage, an appointment sys-
tem has been set up by which the
Cristobal garage will call the An-
con garage for an appointment.
The customer will be advised when
to deliver the tires and when to
return for them.
For all other customers, recap-
ping at the Ancon garage will con-
tinue to be by appointment.
Scheduled jobs will be ready for
pick up by 3:30 p.m. the day they
are promised. Delivery and pick
up is the responsibility of the cus-
tomer. The foreman of the Tire
Shop will determine if the casing
furnished by the customer is safe
for recapping.
Retread tires are sometimes avail-
able for purchase. The customer is
charged the cost of the retread
plus $2 for the casing in sizes
G78 x 15 and H78 x 15, when these
are available.

Muy pocas personas pueden de-
cir que no tienen pasatiempo al-
guno para sus horas de descanso.
Una de ellas es la Sra. Xenia Mas
de Vergara, supervisor de la Sec-
cion de Fisioterapia del Hospital
Gorgas. Dice que s6lo tiene dos
aficiones y esas le Ilevan todo su
tiempo: su trabajo y cuidar de su
esposo y de sus hijos. Casada con
el Dr. Luis E. Vergara, Director
del Hospital Psiquiatrico Nacional
y Director Nacional de Salud Men-
tal del Ministerio de Salud de la
Repiiblica de PanamA, reside en la
Urbanizaci6n Pribanco de la ciu-
dad de PanamA con sus tres niiios:
Carmen Gisela, de 8 afios; Irma
Cecilia, de 6 y Luis Emesto, Jr.,
de apenas 3 afios. Las dos prime-
ras cursan studios en el Colegio
International de Maria Inmacu-
"Mini" Mas, como la conocen
sus amistades y compafieros de
trabajo naci6 en la capital y en
1961 se gradu6 de bachiller en le-
tras en el antiguo Liceo de Sefio-
ritas, hoy Colegio Jos6 A. Rem6n
Cantera. En 1963 obtuvo un grado
universitario en letras en el Sacred
Heart College, en Cullman, Alaba-
ma. Tres afios despuds obtuvo su
licenciatura en Fisioterapia en la
Universidad de St. Louis, en St.
Louis, Missouri.
Pertenece a la Asociaci6n Ame-
ricana de Fisioterapia.
A su regreso a la patria, prest6
servicio durante various afios en el
Departamento de 'Fisioterapia de
la Caja de Seguro Social de Pana-
ma. Despues ingres6 al servicio del
Canal de PanamA, en el Hospital
Gorgas, donde ya lleva 5 afios.
Desde un principio trabaj6 como
Terapista Fisica en el mismo de-
partamento, hasta abril de 1975,
cuando fue ascendida a supervi-
Durante su empleo con el Canal
de PanamA ha aprobado el Curso
de Introducci6n a la Supervisi6n
y otro, Ilamado El Supervisor y el
Comportamiento Humano. "Mini"
dice que fue una gran idea de sus
superiores el que ella tomara esos
cursos pues le han servido much
para cumplir mejor con su trabajo.
Mini dice: "En mis 10 afios
como terapista fisica he tenido
grandes satisfacciones al poder con-
tribuir en algo a rehabilitar pa-
cientes que han llegado con gran-
des impedimentos fisicos y una
larga historic de padecimientos".
Y sigue comentando: "El terapeuta
fisico debe afiadir a sus conoci-
mientos profesionales una buena
dosis de compasi6n, paciencia,
comprensi6n e iniciativa. Debe in-
fundir en sus pacientes la sensa-
ci6n de seguridad y apoyo, sin
implicar histima y debilidad, que
en nada ayudarian a la rehabilita-
ci6n del individuo".
Se refiere tambidn a que quizais
el problema mas grande que en-
frentan los pacientes rehabilitados,
pero que tienen alguna secuela de
su inal es la falta de oportunida-
des que le ofrece la sociedad para
procurarse la subsistencia. Dice
Mini: "OjalA llegue pronto el dia
en que en PanamA tengamos 'ta-
lleres protegidos' que brinden opor-
tunidades de empleo a amputados,
a pacientes con secuela de polio,
a victims de accidents cerebro-
vascularcs y a otros muchos para
que dichas personas, dentro de sus
limitaciones puedan incorporarse a
la comunidad productive".

Taller de Llantas Frstn a spda Bodas de Plata
SFsta de Desped ida

lace Cambios
Con el prop6sito de mejorar el
servicio a los clients, la Divisi6n
de Transporte a Motor ha puesto a
operar una maquina "Orbitread"
para reencauchar llantas. Este nue-
vo y modern equipo debera re-
ducir a un minimo las demoras en
este servicio.
Otro procedimiento nuevo en el
Taller de Llantas es que la Divi-
si6n de Transporte a Motor no
garantizar mAs un reencauche
gratis for fallas en el mismo.
Se cobrarA por el material de
reencauche, desde cuando la Ilanta
fue reencauchada hasta cuando fa-
116 la misma. Se le cobrarA al clien-
te por el reencauche, pero se le
darA cr6dito por el reencauche que
aun queda en la Ilanta. Para deter-
minar cuinto reencauche queda en
la Ilanta, 6sta sera media en el
Taller de Llantas y se calcularA un
porcentaje para determinar la can-
tidad que se cobrarA al client por
el reencauche de reemplazo.
Las fallas en reencauche no son
fallas en la hechura necesariamen-
te. Hay muchos factors que pue-
den causar fallas, uno de los cuales
es la condici6n del material usado
en el reencauche.
Con el fin de reducir las demo-
ras en el servicio, para los clients
del sector AtlAntico que ordenan
reencauchar sus llantas en el Ta-
ller de Llantas de Anc6n por me-
dio de los Talleres de Crist6bal,
dichos talleres han establecido un
sistema de citas. Los clients serAn
notificados sobre cuando deberin
entregar las llantas y cuando debe-
rAn regresar por ellas.
Para todos los demAs clients, el
reencauche en los Talleres de An-
c6n seguirA siendo per medio de
citas. Los trabajos programados es-
tarAn listos para ser recogidos a las
3:30 p.m. del dia que se prometi6.
El client tendrA la responsabilidad
de Ilevar la Ilanta y de recogerla.
El capataz del Taller de Llantas
determinara si la Ilanta que entre-
ga el client puede reencaucharse
con la debida seguridad.
A veces hay llantas reencaucha-
das a la venta. Al client se le
cobrarA por el reencauche mis $2
por la Ilanta vieja en los tamafios
G78 x 15 y H78 x 15, cuando haya.
Para hacer citas de reencauche
se deberA Ilamar al 52-7705.
