The Panama Canal Spillway
Vol. XIV, No. 48 Friday, July 9, 1976

Both Panama City and Colon were represented at the Fourth of July
Bicentennial parade in Balboa as Bombero bands from both terminal
cities helped to celebrate the event. Rain failed to dampen the enthu-
siasm of the occasion and the parade was one of the largest and most
colorful in Canal Zone history. It is estimated that more than 10,000
spectators turned out to watch the marching units file by.

Rendering a rifle salute, the Balboa High School
Junior ROTC Drill Team passes the reviewing stand
during the Bicentennial parade. Among the dig-
nitaries on the stand are, center, Canal Zone Gov.
and Mrs. H. R. Parfitt. At their left are Ambassador
and Mrs. William J. Jorden and at their right are
Lt. Gen. D. P. McAuliffe, Commander in Chief,

U.S. Southern Command, and his daughter Kathy.
The parade was the first event in a day full of activi-
ties that included a community picnic, a Canal Zone-
wide bell ringing tribute to the Nation and a spec-
tacular fireworks display that rain postponed until
Monday night.

Rainbow City High School Features U.S. History

From 1776 to Space-Age in Bicentennial Display

A highlight of the Canal Zone's
Bicentennial Week was the Amer-
ican Independence Day Program
at Rainbow City High School.
More than 100 students in grades
8 through 12 participated in the
program which was sponsored by
the 12th grade class.
A colorful imaginative display
on the corridor walls covered the
entire spectrum of American his-
tory from the Revolutionary War
to the flight to the moon.
The eighth grade class put on a
play about Abraham Lincoln's first
case as a young lawyer. Anna Es-
cobar, a 12th grade student gave
a talk in Spanish entitled "A Salute
to the United States of America"
and Clara Willies, a 12 grader,
recited the poem "America."
With posters, photographs and
narratives, the ninth grade class
focused its attention on famous
Black Americans while the 12th
grade technical training class re-
created a moon-landing complete
with spacemen and spaceships.
Two versions of the original

A member of the highly trained
scientific brain trust assuring that
we continue to enjoy the sweetest-
tasting, purest and healthiest water
in the world is Dr. Franklin H.
A professional chemist who
teaches international business at
university level as an avocation and
collects old money as a hobby,
Dr. Morris fulfilled yet another of
his pursuits when this past May
he completed requirements for the
master's degree in business admin-
istration at the University of Okla-
homa, Canal Zone Branch.
Dr. Morris has been employed
with the Canal organization since
March 1972, as a chemist at the
Water Quality Control Labora-
tory at the Miraflores Filtration
Plant. Basically, his duties consist
in the analysis of water samples
to check for different levels of
nutrients in the water, a process
which may involve as many as 40
He is currently participating in
a 2-month marine chemist training
course which will prepare him to
detect such dangers as flammable
vapors and monitor fires to deter-
mine levels of carbon monoxide in
working areas aboard vessels and
at other locations along the Canal
to insure the safety of workers at
these sites.
A native of Colon, Dr. Morris
was graduated from Colegio San
Jos6 (La Salle) in Colon, with the
highest academic grade in his class.
He earned a bachelor of science
degree in chemistry in 1964 from
Fairleigh Dickinson University,
Madison, N.J., and his doctorate

in chemistry in 1969 from State
University of New York at Stony
Brook, N.Y. He completed his high
school education on a scholarship
and attended college with a full
scholarship from the Cordell Hull
Foundation. Throughout his entire
university career he was on the
dean's list and a member of the
honor's program.
Prior to joining the Canal, Dr.
Morris was employed as a quality
control manager with the Schering
Corp. at the Colon Free Zone. He
was a professor of chemistry from
August 1970 to November 1972 at
the University of Panama and is
currently teaching at the Univer-
sity of Santa Maria La Antigua's
School of Business. Among his sub-
jects are basic finance, budget and
planning, operation research, qual-
ity control, international business
and other courses related to the
field of business.
He is in the process of collect-
ing material and researching in-
formation on international business
for a book he plans to write on
that subject, hopefully, next year.
Several of his articles in the field
of chemistry have been published.
With an immense capacity for
intellectual development and a
spontaneous interest in the world
around him, he is never at a loss
for something to do. In addition
to his duties at the Laboratory
and at the university, he has an
avid interest in the latest develop-
ments in medicine, engineering,
art and other subjects. When asked
which of his experiences gives him
greatest satisfaction, he replied
that teaching is for him the most

Filtration Plant.

rewarding but for economic reasons
he must pursue that profession as
an avocation and not as his life's
Somehow, he finds time also to
devote to his hobbies of collecting
stamps and coins, a hobby he
shares with his wife, the former
Nora VAsquez, of Venezuela, who
this past March was graduated
from the University of Panama

where she majored in Public Rela-
tions. He is especially proud of his
"fairly good" collection of U.S.
paper currency dating back to the
19th century.
Before obtaining his doctor of
philosophy degree, Dr. Morris trav-
eled extensively in Europe, visiting
most of the countries on the Con-
tinent. He also has visited several
Latin American countries and finds

traveling a good way to learn
about people's culture, language
and way of life.
Seemingly, "busy as a bee" with
his varied work activities, Dr.
Morris, nevertheless, finds time to
enjoy his young children, Tatiana
Elizabeth, Jahaira Erika and
Franklin H., Jr. The Morris family
lives in the El Carmen section of
Panama City.

Everything You Wanted To Know About Voting

The right to vote-an American's
most precious legacy-was a Bi-
centennial gift from the President
to United States-citizen civilians
living overseas.
And Canal Zone residents who
could not vote previously because
they did not own a home or prop-
erty in the United States have
shown their appreciation by mail-
ing requests for absentee ballots
in record numbers.
The precedent for American cit-
izens to vote by absentee process
originated during World War II.
When it was realized that no
method existed for men and wom-
en in uniform to vote, President
Franklin D. Roosevelt called for
The Congress and the States
enacted legislation enabling mem-
bers of the military forces to vote
This year, a new law extended

that right to U.S.-citizen civilians
living overseas, including the Canal
U.S. citizen Canal Zone residents
may vote in Federal elections in
the last State in which they resided
in the United States.
Government employees and their
dependents may vote without any
special documentation. Other civ-
ilian U.S. citizens residing in the
Canal Zone must hold a valid U.S.
passport or Card of Identity and
Registration issued under the
authority of the Secretary of State
in order to vote under the new
Although voters need not own a
home, have a home address or
even have definite intent to re-
turn to the State where they last
lived in order to vote there, they
must comply with that State's
absentee voting procedures.

Safety spanning the years 1776 to 1976 is the theme of the posters to
be displayed at the Electrical Division. Nyda Mir6, a clerk-steno, at the
division gives everyone a look before the Bicentennial posters get nailed
to the wall.

Dr. Randal Robertson Takes Over

Practice at Balboa Dental Clinic

Dr. Randal C. Robertson, who
has been with the Gorgas Dental
Clinic for the past 2 years, has
taken over the dental practice of
Dr. Luis Arsuaga, who has re-
turned to Puerto Rico to go into
private practice.
Born in Titusville, Pa., Dr.
Robertson attended Pennsylvania
State University and the University
of Pittsburgh. Following gradua-
tion in 1970, he came to the Isth-
mus, where he was assigned to the
U.S. Army Dental Corps at Fort
Clayton, remaining there for 3

Dr. Robertson is practicing in
Balboa at the same location oc-
cupied by Dr. Arsuaga and has
retained the same staff and same
telephone number, 52-6269.
Dr. Robertson and his wife, the
former Camille Robins, also of
Titusville, have a young son, Mat-
thew Eric. Mrs. Robertson was an
operating nurse at Gorgas Hospital
for 5 years.
A member of the American Den-
tal Association, Dr. Robertson is
president-elect of the Canal Zone
Dental Society.

Since most States have different
registration and voting require-
ments, it is important that voters
study the section concerning the
State in which they intend to vote.
Each State details informa-

important, correct addresses for
requesting ballots and for mailing

point certain problem areas.
They report that many FPCAs
cannot be processed because they
are illegible, improperly filled out,
or have some other deficiency that
makes them impossible to process.
The result: the absent voter does
not receive a ballot.
To make sure you do it right the

call him at 52-3229, he will mail
the post card to you.
On the Atlantic side FPCAs are

pleted and timely mailed FPCA
is an essential first step in exer-
cising the right to vote.

El derecho a votar-el legado
mins preciado de los Estados Uni-
dos-fue el regalo del Bicentenario
de parte del Presidente de los Es-
tados Unidos a los ciudadanos ci-
viles que viven en ultramar.
Y los residents de la Zona del
Canal que anteriormente no podian
votar debido a que no poseian
casa o propiedad en los Estados
Unidos demostraron su agradeci-
miento solicitando sus balotas por
correo en nmneros sin precedcn'c
El process de votar en ausencia
tuvo su origen durante la II Guerra
Cuando se hizo evidence que no
habia manera alguna mediante la
cual hombres y mujeres de las
fuerzas uniformadas pudieran vo-
tar, el Presidente Franklin D.
Roosevelt tom6 los pasos necesa-
El Congress y los Estados Uni-
dos formularon las legislaci6n que
permitia a miembros de las fuer-
zas militares votar en ausencia.
Este afio, la nueva ley extiende

dicho derecho a ciudadanos nor-
teamericanos civiles que resident
en ultramar incluyendo la Zona
del Canal.
Los residents norteamericanos
de la Zona del Canal pueden vo-
tar en las elecciones Federales del
Estado en que mas recientemente
vivieron en los Estados Unidos.
Los empleados del gobierno y
sus dependientes pueden ejercer el
voto sin ninguna documentaci6n
especial. Los ciudadanos norte-
americanos civiles residents de la
Zona del Canal que no son em-
pleados deben tener un pasaporte
norteamericano vigente o una tar-
jeta de identidad o de registro ex-
pedida por la Secretaria de Estado
para poder votar bajo la nueva ley.

con los requisitos de registro y
