Though mindful of austerity, employees at Miraflores were
not satisfied to permit so important a milestone as the Bi-
centennial to go by without a display of their own at the
locks. At the suggestion of Art O'Donnel, operations super-
visor at Miraflores, they gathered some scrap materials, put

their skills to work and came up with this Bicentennial
greeting for passing ships and visitors to the locks. Above
left: The artist, Alfredo Isaac, an employee of the paint shop,
puts finishing touches on the sign. Above: The sign, made
up of four pieces of scrap celotex, is carefully moved through

the arch of the control house. Above right: A member of
the Canal Protection Division and Locks employees watch as
the Bicentennial sign is put in place on the side of the

Bicentennial motifs by Locks personnel also.

Rates for Electricity

And Telephones Will

Be Increased in July
Current Tennessee Valley Au-
thority residential electric power
schedules indicate Panama Canal
employee power rates are lagging
by approximately 11 percent. Ac-
cordingly, on the basis of our com-
pairability policy, an increase of
approximately 11 percent in our
rates is required.
Also, the Panama Canal res-
idential telephone rate will be in-
creased from $5.65 to $7 per
month to cover higher operating
expenses. There will be no in-
crease in the monthly charge for
telephone extensions.
The new employee electric
power and telephone rates will
become effective in July 1976.
Panama Canal power and tele-
phone rates are applicable to Pan-
ama Canal employees and reli-
gious, welfare, fraternal, and civic
organizations entitled to employee
rates. Changes in the Panama
Canal employee power rates also
affect Department of Defense civ-
ilians living on military bases.

It's love at first sight for this baby ocelot that was born and bottle fed

Their timing was perfect. The

terrariums were ready for sale just

Meanwhile Dr. Gale had sent

Yolanda de Ucr6s, secretary to
the Chief of the Radiology Service
at Gorgas Hospital, also known as
the "lady who gives the castor
oil," has, directly or indirectly,
dealt with just about every patient
with a medical problem admitted
to the hospital since 1959. Her
bright smile and cheerful manner
often have eased the anxiety of
patients scheduled for X-ray or
other examinations administered by
the X-ray Department of the
Born in Ocu, Yolanda, along
with her family, soon left the little
rural community known as the
most picturesque of Panama's in-
terior towns. She attended school
in Panama, was graduated from
the Pan American Institute and
studied business administration at
the University of Panama.
She came to work for the Canal
organization in 1954; her first job-
receptionist in the Surgical Service
at Gorgas. She was employed also
in the Obstetrics and Gynecology
Clinic prior to joining the Radio-
logy Service. In addition to her
day-to-day secretarial duties, Yo-
landa oversees the clerical per-
sonnel in the X-ray Department.
She is responsible, too, for appoint-
ments made in that department for
such services and examinations as
fluoroscopic procedures, upper gas-
trointestinal series, and other
physical examinations that have

earned her the distinction of
"castor oil lady."
The very nature of her work has
given Yolanda the opportunity to
meet and serve people of many
nations who must go to Gorgas
Hospital for medical services. Ill
or injured persons taken off tran-
siting ships, or others flown in
from distant places in South
America are among the many
patients she must deal with. And
she admits that at times it is a
real challenge to give instructions
to a sick person who does not
speak English or Spanish. A smat-
tering of German, French and
Italian have seen her through some
rather difficult situations in dealing
with patients.
The X-ray Department is a con-
stant hub of activity as it carries
on its work with patients and
doctors in all the health centers
in the Canal Zone. Overseas com-
munications are part of the work-
a-day business also. There is cor-
respondence with multiple medical
centers and doctors, often request-
ing the delivery of X-rays of pa-
tients who have been assigned to
new stations in the continental
U.S.A., or other areas. Hers is a
busy day filled with a multitude
of duties and obligations and since
the subject is people, there is never
a dull moment. And she loves it.
Yolanda's husband is Oscar
Ucr6s, a well-known lawyer in

Panama. Anyone in Panama over Yolanda and her husband have

American Bicentennial Emblem
/2'�e ,o1O

The American Revolution Bi-
centennial symbol is derived
from the stars, stripes, and
colors of the United States flag.
The symbol takes the form of
an American 5-pointed star in
white, surrounded by continu-
ous red, white, and blue stripes
which form a second star. This
double star is symbolic of
the two centuries which have
passed since the American
These colorful stripes also
evoke a feeling of festivity and

suggest the furied bunting tra-
ditionally used in times of cel-
ebration throughout the nation.
The symbol is contemporary
in design in keeping with the
forward-looking goals of the
Bicentennial celebration: "to
forge a new national commit-
ment, a new spirit for '76, a
spirit which will unite the na-
tion in purpose and dedication
to the advancement of human
welfare as it moves into its
third century."

Lonesome Geose Must Find Mate

...Or It Soon Will Be Too Late

A zoologist who is seeking a
mate for the world's rarest living
creature, a subspecies of the giant
Galapagos tortoise, will describe
his research on these "Gargantuans
of the Galap4gos" in a lecture
sponsored by the Isthmian Scien-
tific Society, Monday, June 21.
Dr. Craig MacFarland, director
of the Charles Darwin Research
Station, will report on his quest
for a female Pinta land turtle who
can be mated with "Lonesome
George," perhaps the only living
survivor of his race.
George was discovered in 1971
plodding across Pinta Island in
search of companionship. A Smith-
sonian scientist observed that
George was so lonely that he had
adopted a pet rock roughly the
size and shape of a tortoise.
Pinta Island lies in the Gala-
pagos Archipelago, remote islands
of Ecuador, which lie 600 miles
west of South America. Dr. Mac-
Farland and his wife have spent
the past 8 years in the Galapagos
studying the ecology and behavior
of the giant land tortoise and the
green sea turtle, both endangered
George must breed with his own
kind to assure perpetuation of the
Pinta population, or race, 1 of 11
known surviving subspecies of the
giant tortoise. Dr. MacFarland says
George, now thought to be be-

tween 40 and 60 years of age,
will become sterile if he does not
have an opportunity to mate. For
this reason, George was shifted to
the research center on Santa Cruz
Island where he resides with two
females of other races of tortoise.
Most of George's ancestors were
slaughtered by 19th century
whalers, buccaneers and fur sealers
who are estimated to have des-
troyed upwards of 300,000 giant
tortoises. Those who survived were
no match in competing for the
vegetation with goats which had
been introduced. Wardens re-
cently eliminated 37,000 goats in
the islands.
Dr. MacFarland has appealed
to zoos around the world to find
a female of the Pinta subspecies
for George. He is convinced that
the race can be preserved if a
mate is located and the pair is
repatriated to its home island.
Dr. MacFarland's illustrated lec-
ture, which is entitled "Unique
Reptiles of the Galapagos Islands:
Their Ecology and Conservation
Plight," will be presented at the
Albrook Officers' Club. There will
be a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. fol-
lowed by supper and Dr. Mac-
Farland's lecture. Price of the
meal: $4 for members and guests
and $4.50 for non-members. Re-
servations may be placed with
Wayne Samuels at 52-5375 or
Jerry Huggins at 52-3952.

Proud Father of 12 Sees Another

Offspring Earn Medical Degree

Sebastian H. Laremont, a long-
time employee of the Panama
Canal currently working as a cus-
todian at the Industrial Training
Center at Balboa Heights, has
cause to be especially proud these
days. His greatest desire, as he
expressed it a few months ago in
an interview for SPILLWVAY'S
"People in the News," was to see
Benjamin, his number three son,
obtain his degree in medicine.
The wish was realized recently
when Benjamin Laremont was
granted his medical degree at the
graduation ceremony held May 30
at Meharry Medical College in
Nashville, Tenn. Dr. Benjamin
Laremont is the second medical
doctor in the family of 12 chil-
dren, of whom 7 now are profes-
sionals or on their way to be-
coming professionals. His older
brother, Dr. Sebastian II. Lare-
mront, is the director of the San

Miguelito Clinic in Panama. His
sister, Mary Ann, will obtain her
medical degree from the Univer-
sity of Guadalajara, Mexico, next
The new Dr. Laremont attended

from Lincoln College and a bach-
elor of science degree from Sterling
College, Sterling, Kans. lie is going

Aumentaran Tarifas

De los Tel fonos

Y la Electricidad
Las tarifas actuales de energia
clictrica residential prescritas por
la Autoridad del Valle de Tennes-
s:cc indican que las tasas de ener-
gia que se cobran a empleados
del Canal de Panama son inferio-
ro'; a 6sas en aproximadamente un
I1 por ciento. Por tanto, en base
a la political de comparabilidad, es
nccesario aumentar la tarifa local
en un 11 por ciento aproximada-
Igualmente, la tarifa residential
de tel6fonos del Canal de Panama
sera aumentada de $5.65 a $7 por
mes para contrarrestar aumentos
en los gastos de operaci6n. No
habra' aumento en el cargo men-
sual que se hace por extensions
de tel6fono.
Las nuevas tarifas de energia
el6ctrica y de tel6fonos para los
empleados entrarAn en vigencia en
julio de 1976. Las tarifas de elec-
tricidad y tel6fono del Canal de
Panama son aplicables a emplea-
dos del Canal de Panama y orga-
nismos civicos, religiosos, fraterna-
les, y de beneficencia que tienen
derccho a tarifas para empleados.

Fue amor a primera vista entire cl pequefio tigrillo que naci6 y fue ali-

A principios de mayo, los alum-

Junior 18, 1976

Yolanda de Ucr6s, tambidn co-
nocida como la "sefiora del accite
de castor", cs secretaria del Jefe
de Radiologia del Hospital Gorgas
y desde 1959, direct o indirecta-
mente, ha tratado con casi todos
los pacientes que se han recluido
en cl hospital en busca de aten-
ci6n mddica. Su sonrisa y sus mo-
dales con frecuencia han mitigado
la preocupaci6n de pacientes en-
viados a tomarse radiografias o a
someterse a algunos de los exa-
menes que brinda el Departamen-
to de Radiografia del hospital.
Yolanda naci6 en Ocu y junto
con su familiar abandon dicha
pequeiia comunidad rural, una de
las mAs pintorescas del interior de
la Rep6blica. Se educ6 en la ciu-
dad de Panami, graduAndose del
Institute Panamericano y estudi6
administraci6n de negocios en la
Universidad de Panami.
Comenz6 a trabajar en la em-
presa del Canal en 1954; su pri-
mer trabajo fue el de recepcionis-
ta en el Departamento de Cirugia
del Gorgas. Tambidn trabaj6 en el
Consultorio de Obstetricia y Gine-
cologia del mismo hospital antes
de trabajar en Radiologia. Ademais
de sus tareas de secretaria, Yolan-
da supervise el personal de oficina
del Departamento de Radiografia.
Tambidn tiene a su cargo concer-
tar citas para los servicios y exai-
menes que se brindan en el de-
partamento, tales como los de fluo-
roscopia, series gastrointestinales y
otros exAmenes fisicos que le han
ganado el mote de "sefiora del
aceite de castor".

La naturaleza misma del traba-
jo de Yolanda le brinda la opor-
tunidad de conocer y servir a
gentes de muchas naciones que
Ilegan al Hospital Gorgas en bus-
ca de atenci6n medica. Frecuente-
mente tiene que tratar con tripu-
lantes o pasajeros enfermos o acci-
dentados de los barcos que tran-
sitan por el Canal o procedentes
de lugares distantes de Sur Am&-
rica. Ella admite que a veces es
todo un reto tratar de dar expli-
caciones a un enfermo que no en-
tiende ni ingl6s ni espafiol. Sus
nociones de aleman, francs e ita-
liano la han sacado de apuros en
muchas ocasiones.
El Departamento de Radiogra-
fia es una colmena de actividades,
todas relacionadas con pacientes
y medicos de todos los centros de
salud de la Zona del Canal. Las
comunicaciones de larga distancia
son un acontecer diario. Miltiples
centros medicos y doctors del ex-
terior con frecuencia solicitan la
entrega de radiografias de pacien-
tes que se han ido del Istmo para
trabajar en los Estados Unidos u
otros paises. La multitud de tra-
bajos y obligaciones la mantienen
ocupada todo el dia, y ya que
trata constantemente con el pibli-
co, no hay un moment de aburri-
miento. Y le fascina.
El esposo de Yolanda es Oscar
Ucr6s, abogado muy conocido de
PanamA. Cualquier persona en
PanamA que tenga mis de 40 afios
recordara a las tias de Oscar, "las
sefioritas Marina," quienes funda-

ron la primera escuela para nifias
en PanamA, un plantel muy selec-
to que permitia a varones asistir
al primer grado. Las nifias que
asistieron a dicha escuela hoy dia
pueden ser reconocidas por su ca-
ligrafia. Es bonita, clara y uni-
Yolanda y su esposo tienen tres
hijos, Victor de 16, Erick de 14
y Ren6 de 12. Son entusiastas del

judo y recientemente Ilenaron de
orgullo a sus padres al ganar me-
dallas de oro, plata y bronce en
un campeonato. Los muchachos se
educan en la escuela de La Salle
en PanamA.
Los pasatiempos favorites de
Yolanda son viajar y coleccionar
libros de cocina. Ha visitado Euro-
pa en varias ocasiones y recomien-
da el tren como la mejor manera



en la


lolanda de Ucr6s

de viajar por el Viejo Mundo.
Tambi6n ha visitado Turquia,
Grecia, el norte de Africa, todo
Centro America, la mayor parte
de Sur AmBrica, los Estados Uni-
dos y CanadA. Cada 2 aios ella
y su esposo viajan a los Estados
Unidos y el itinerario siempre in-
cluye una visit a uno de sus
lugares favoritos-Nueva York o
Las Vegas.

Los residents de la Zona del
Canal ahora pueden evitar la
molestia y el desorden que im-
plican las ventas de patio en
sus propias casas. El sAbado 26

su local para que se celebre alli
un "Mercado de Pulgas" comu-
nal de 9 a.m. a 3 p.m.
Los interesados en vender
algo, pueden alquilar una mesa

que tengan para la venta.
"The Bridge" no cobrara por-
centaje alguno sobre las ventas
pero cobrara a los clients ma-
yores de 12 afios de edad una
suma de admisi6n de 10 cen-
Las ganancias serAn utiliza-
das por los j6venes de la Zona

ta una piedra predilecta o dul-
ces hechos en casa-puede va-

Simbolo del Bicentenario de E.U. J
s" 7 .I1

El simbolo del Bicentenario
de la Revoluci6n Americana se
deriva de las estrellas, franjas
y colors de la bandera de los
Estados Unidos.
El simbolo tiene la forma de
una estrella de 5 puntas en
blanco rodeada de franjas con-
tinuas en rojo, blanco y azul
que forman una segunda estre-
Ila. La double estrella simboliza
los 2 siglos que han transcu-
rrido desde la Revoluci6n Ame-
Las franjas de color tambi6n

evocan un sentimiento de fes-
tividad y sugieren las colgadu-
ras tricolores que se usan tra-
dicionalmente en tiempos de
fiesta por todo el pais.
El simbolo es contemporineo
en su disefio y se atiene a las
ambiciosas metas de la cele-
braci6n del bicentenario: "for-
jar una nueva obligaci6n nacio-
nal, un nuevo espiritu para el
'76, espiritu que una al pais a
media que avanza hacia el
tercer siglo en prop6sito y de-
dicaci6n por el mejoramiento
del bienestar humano.

Sin una Companiera en el Mundo

Pobre Jorse se Vuelve Infecundo

Un zo6logo que anda en busca
de una compafiera para la cria-
tura mis rara del mundo, una sub-
especie de la tortuga gigante de"
Los GalApagos, describe en una
charla auspiciada por la Sociedad
Cientifica Istmefia el lunes, 21 de
junio, los pormenores de su inves-
tigaci6n sobre dichas "Gargantias
dc Los GalApagos".
El Dr. Craig MacFarland, di-
rector de la Estaci6n de Investiga-
ciones Charles Darwin, disertar,
sobre la bHisqueda de una tortuga
hembra de Pinta que pueda apa-
rearse con el "solitario Jorge", tal
vez. el inico sobreviviente de su
Jorge fue descubierto en 1971
en la Isla Pinta cuando buscaba
afanosamente una compafiera. Un
cientifico Smithsoniano observ6
que Jorge se sentia tan solitario
que adopt a una piedra de aproxi-
madamente el tamafio y forma de
una tortuga.
La Isla Pinta se encuentra en el
Archipidlago de Los GalApagos, en
el Ecuador, a unas 600 millas al
oe:;te de Sur America. El Dr. Mac-
Farland y su esposa han permane-
cido en Los Galapagos los flltimos
8 aios estudiando la ecologia y
comportamiento de la tortuga gi-
pante de tierra y la tortuga verde
de mar, ambas species en peligro
de extinci6n.
Jorge debe aparearse con las de
su propia raza a fin de asegurar
la perpetuaci6n de su raza, o sea,
la poblaci6n Pinta, una de las 11
subspecies sobrevivientes que se
conocen de la tortuga gigante.

El Dr. MacFarland manifiesta
que Jorge, de 40 a 60 aios de
edad, se volverA est6ril si no con-
sigue compafiera. Por esta raz6n,
Jorge fue enviado al centro de in-
vestigaci6n de la Isla de Santa
Cruz donde reside con dos hem-
bras de ot*as razas de tortugas.
La mayoria de los antepasados
de Jorge fueron exterminados por
pescadores de ballenas, bucaneros
y vendedores de pieles y se calcu-
la que destruyeron mAs de 300,000
tortugas gigantes. Las que sobre-
vivieron no fueron capaces de com-
petir por la vegetaci6n con las ca-
bras que luego fueron introduci-
das. Recientemente los guards
eliminaron 37,000 cabras en las
El Dr. MacFarland ha hecho un
llamamiento a los zool6gicos de
todo el mundo para que se busque
una Pinta hembra para Jorge. Tie-
ne ]a convicci6n de que se podri
preservar la raza si se localiza una
compafiera para Jorge y se envian
a la isla original.
La conferencia ilustrada del Dr.
MacFarland que tiene como titulo
"Reptiles Raros de las Islas Gala-
pagos: Su Ecologia y Conserva-
ci6n", se llevarA a cabo en el Club
de Oficiales de Albrook. Habra
una hora de cocteles a las 6 p.m.
seguida de una cena y la diserta-
ci6n del Dr. MacFarland. El pre-
cio de la cena es de $4 para miem-
bros e invitados y $4.50 para los
