'Minorities' Constitute Majority


The history of black people par-
allels the history of the Panama
Canal in many respects and Black
History Month, which is being ob-
served this month, provides an op-
portunity to recognize the contribu-
tions made by blacks to the water-
way and to Isthmian life.
The Canal organization has al-
ways been a major employer of
minorities and, in fact, the majority
of employees are members of what
are usually called "minority" groups.
In addition to blacks, they include
American Indians, orientals, and
persons with Spanish surnames.
From the construction period to the
present day, a workforce of con-
scientious men and women of varied
ethnic backgrounds and ancestry
have made it a model of efficiency.
Approximately 50,000 West In-
dians took part in the digging of the
Canal. Some had come earlier to
work on the French Canal effort
and more than 30,000 contract
workers were brought to the Isth-
mus by the Isthmian Canal Com-
mission. Two-thirds of this group
were recruited in Barbados, approxi-
mately 10 percent of the popula-
tion. They were unskilled men,
mostly agricultural workers who had
never done construction work. Many
had never seen a railroad. Few
knew what explosives were. But the
drilling in Gaillard Cut and the
firing of locomotives were all done
by West Indians. The bulk of the
building work on the Canal also
was done by West Indian carpen-
ters, masons and painters.
Many of these men also had
come from Trinidad, Curacao,
St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Vincent,
Grenada and Guadeloupe. Several
thousand came from Jamaica, where
at first the authorities on the island
refused to allow recruiting. A tax


of 1 pound sterling per man was
imposed on any who wished to
leave for the Isthmus. To pay the
tax and the passage was beyond the
reach of the average laborer. Those
who did come here from Jamaica
were mostly artisans and not the
"pick and shovel" laborer. Between
4,000 and 5,000 of these men were
employed during the busiest years
of the project.
Most of the West Indians, how-
ever, were employed as mechanics
helpers, as workers on the wharves
and docks, as waiters and servants
in hotels, in general work in hos-
pitals and offices and in domestic
services.
Gave History a Legend
Citing the contributions of these
employees, Joseph Bishop, secretary
of the Isthmian Canal Commission,
wrote in his book The Panama


Highlighting activities for Black
History Month are three events
prepared by the Office of Equal
Employment Opportunity and
the Canal Zone College. The
first of these is the presentation
tonight and tomorrow of the play
in Spanish, La Muerte de Alfre-
do Gris, with an all black cast.
The time is 7:30 p.m. and the
place is the Canal Zone College
Auditorium.
A panel discussion on ethno
analysis by Dr. Henry Braddock
and Dr. Kenneth Lake will be
held at 7 p.m., February 15, at
the same auditorium, and on
February 16 and 17, at 12 noon,
a film, Black Woman, parts 1
and 2, will be shown at Room 10
in the Administration Building.
A discussion of the film led by
Robert Hewitt will follow the
showing.


Gateway, . . ."Hundreds of West
Indians lost their lives during the
10 years of the hazardous construc-
tion work while they gave to his-
tory a legend of loyalty, industry,
courage and cooperation with the
United States whose scientific
knowledge, engineering skill, eco-
nomic resources and extraordinary
organizing abilities proved adequate
to the task of bringing into reality
a dream of several centuries."
Their contributions to the Canal
organization, to Isthmian culture
and their numerous achievements
in all walks of life here and abroad
are a record of which blacks and
whites alike can be justly proud.
Special tribute was paid to these
workers when the U.S. Government
issued a 10-cent postage stamp on
August 15, 1951, commemorating
West Indian labor during the con-
struction years. It was the first time
the United States Government had
dedicated a stamp to a foreign
group.


When their work contracts were
completed, many returned to their
homes on the islands. Others pre-
ferred to stay. Because they lacked
training and special skills, they
were hired as clerks, messengers,
laborers and filled the bulk of un-
skilled jobs.
Educational Facilities
The West Indians urged their
children to take advantage of the
advanced educational facilities of-
fered by the Canal Zone Govern-
ment to meet the needs and in-
terests of these students. They at-
tended junior and senior high
schools, the occupational high
schools, and La Boca Normal
School. Some later went to colleges
in the United States.
Through the years, these children
and grandchildren of the West
Indian workers became employees
of the Panama Canal. Hundreds of
young men have received training
in the Canal's Apprenticeship Pro-
(Continued on p. 3)


Recognition of Contributions

OF Blacks First Began in 1926


A time for observing the in-
fluence and contributions of blacks
to American and world history was
launched by Dr. Carter Godwin
Woodson, Director of the Associa-
tion for the Study of Negro Life
and History (subsequently, the As-
sociation for the Study of Afro-
American Life and History), in
February 1926.

Storehouse Inventory
Sections B and I, Balboa, and
Section X, Cristobal, will be closed
for inventory all day Tuesday, Feb-
ruary 15, and again for recount on
Tuesday, March 1.


The observance continued as a
week-long event for the next 49
years, coming each year about the
second week in February in order
to include both February 12 and
14, the birth dates of Abraham
Lincoln and journalist Frederick
Douglass, respectively.
Then in 1976, during the 50th
black history observance and the
Bicentennial of the United States,
the celebration of black history was
extended for the entire month of
February.
Black History Month also calls
increased attention to insuring
equal opportunities for blacks.


The unusually dry weather that
prevailed across the Isthmus during
the past rainy season continued
through December and January, es-
tablishing new lows for water in-
flows into Gatun Lake for both
months.
Accumulated rainfall at the 19
stations across the Isthmus during
December was only 1.94 inches, 77
percent below the average Decem-
ber accumulation of 8.26 inches. In
January, the rainfall totalled 1.47
inches, 60 percent below the average
of 3.69 inches normally recorded
during that month.
The water inflow to Gatun Lake
during December was 4,140 million
cubic feet (mcf), far below the pre-
vious record low of 5,781 set in
December 1918 and was 82 per-
cent less than the average for that
month.
The January inflow of 1,132 mcf
shattered the previous January mark
of 1,284 that was set in 1975 and
amounted to only a fraction of the
63-year January average of 6,980
mcf. The level of inflows into the
lake is a reflection of the quantity
of rainfall in the basin during the
previous month.
Weather experts with the Mete-
orological and Hydrographic Branch
explain that the dry statistics for
December and January can be ex-
pected to continue now that dry
season has settled in. They point


out that the reason for the record
breaking figures for December and
January is that the current dry
season arrived a full month earlier
than usual. December is normally
considered a rainy month but the
past December was entered into
the dry season column and the
January figures for rainfall and in-
flow resembled those normal for
February.

For most people, getting stuck
with an "additional duty as as-

couple of hours as part of a team
collating a 100-page report.
But not so for Joan Corliss who
seems to get all of the "fun" addi-
tional duties. She is the Terminal
Division's budget analyst who man-

while writing a monthly newsletter,
organizing activities for CFC fund

redecorated around the area, and
last year doing publicity for the
Panama Canal portion of the Gold-

Her first decorating job was the
Transportation and Terminals Bu-

was a big success. So when her boss
was talking (to someone else) about
the need to redecorate the eight-

There has been a lot of talk lately
about "sugarless" chewing gum. It is
holler to chew this than regular

If you must chew gum, the Amer-

better to chew the sugarless pro-
ducts rather than those that con-
tain sugar. A number of research
studies, the AIA says, point out
that some of the sugarless sweeten-
ing agents-including mannitol, sor-
bitol and xylitol-do not contribute
significantly to dental decay when
they are used in gums and other
confections as replacements for
sugar.
On the other hand, foods and
beverages that contain excessive
amounts of sugar invite tooth decay.
How does the decay process
work? It begins with bacterial

she made plans and notes. During

sugary foods or beverages, the bac-

With frequent and repeated expo-

acids wear down the tooth enamel
and eventually cause decay.
In order to control this decay pro-

When she graduated from Balboa
High School she thought she de-
served an extended vacation. But
her mother had other ideas and a
month later, Joan wept to work. as
a clerk in the Payroll Branch. Not
one to flit around, she spent 22
years working in the various divi-

the Financial Vice President and, in
1973, was an accounting assistant in

he was to be superintendent of the

Blood Donors Admitted


To C.Z. Gallon Club


Health Bureau officials recently
inducted 32 persons into the Gallon
Club for donating a gallon of blood
to the Canal Zone blood banks.
Dr. Albert L. Gore, Health Di-
rector, touched on the humanitarian
aspect of the program and thanked
the donors for doing "something
that not everyone especially wants
to do." He pointed out that there
is an average of 16,000 blood
transfusions in the Canal Zone each
year, pointing up the need for con-
tinuous donations. It must be a con-
tinuous thing, he explained, because
blood that is donated begins to
deteriorate after 21 days if it is
not used.
All inductees received certificates

Softball Benefit

Series Open at

Mt. Hope Feb.15

Isthmians will have their first
opportunity next week to witness
the unique brand of softball played
by "The King and His Court."
Eddie Feigner, the "King" will
field his team at Mount Hope Sta-
dium at 7 p.m., February 15, in the
first of three games the world-famed
foursome will play in the Canal
Zone. The second and third games
will be played at 7:30 p.m., Feb-
ruary 16 and 17 at Balboa Stadium.
The "King" and his three team-
mates will be challenging the best
local nine-man softball teams that
Canal Zone organizations have been
able to put together.
According to Feigner, who orga-
nized "The King and His Court" in
1946, in the 1,392 no hit-no run
games the team has played in 27
countries, he has struck out 90,000
batters, 16,101 while pitching blind-
folded.
Tickets for the games are being
sold for $2 for adults and $1 for
students. Proceeds from all the
games will go to the Canal Zone
United Way.

Discharge Papers Needed
For Personnel Files
Panama Canal employees who
claim service in any of the Armed
Forces must have copies of their
discharge papers (DD 214) included

Ex-service personnel presently
employed in the Canal organization
are urged to bring a DD 214 for
each period of service to the Per-
sonnel Office (Personnel Records-
Administrative Branch) for verifica-
tion.
Early verification of claimed mil-
itary service is particularly impor-
tant to employees making plans to
retire.

gram and gone on to become highly
skilled craftsmen and journeymen.
A large percentage of the electri-
cians, plumbers, mechanics, welders
and other journeymen employed by
the Canal are graduates of the Ap-
prenticeship Program. Recently a
number of young women joined the
program and are currently serving
as apprentices in the trade of their
choice.
Advanced Through Promotions
Employees of West Indian origin
have advanced through promotions
in practically all areas of the Canal
organization. Some are holding su-
pervisory positions in the Fire and
Supply Divisions, while others serve
as control house operators, super-
visory accounting technicians and
one recently was appointed branch
chief.
The Canal's personnel roles also
include a number of U.S. blacks,
among them are engineers, educa-
tors, lawyers, doctors and nurses,
police and a judge.
In recent years, greater job op-
portunities have been extended to
employees of West Indian origin
and employees of other minority
groups. An Equal Employment Op-
portunity officer was appointed in
January 1974 whose major duties
and responsibilities include advising
and assisting both management and
employees on matters pertaining to
civil rights and equal employment
opportunity in Federal Service.
To assure even greater training
opportunities for personnel in the
clerical and manual positions, the
Canal organization has established
an Upward Mobility Program
whereby training will be offered to
these employees under the Office
Services Intern Program and Learn-
ership Program.

reached a peak of activity and thousands of workers were transported to the site each day in labor
trains like this.

La historic del pueblo negro en
muchos aspects va de la mano con
la historic del Canal de PanamA
y el Mes de la Historia Negra que
se estA conmemorando actualmente,
proporciona la oportunidad de dar
reconocimiento a la contribuci6n
hecha por los negros tanto a la
via interoceAnica como a la vida
istmefia.
La organizaci6n del Canal siem-
pre ha sido empleador principal de
minorias y, es mAs, la mayoria de
sus empleados forman part de lo
que usualmente se denominan gru-
pos "minoritarios". AdemAs de ne-
gros, estos grupos incluyen indios
americanos, orientales y personas
con nombres espafioles. Desde la
6poca de la construcci6n del canal
hasta el present, la fuerza trabaja-
dora de hombres y mujeres con-
cienzudos de diversas ascendencias
6tnicas ha hecho de la empresa
canalera un modelo de eficiencia.
Aproximadamente 50,000 antilla-
nos participaron en los trabajos de
la via oceanica. Algunos habian ve-
nido aqui primero para trabajar en
la obra del canal frances y luego,
mis de 30,000 empleados contrata-
dos fueron traidos al Istmo por la
Comisi6n del Canal Istmefo. Dos
terceras parties de este grupo fueron
reclutados en Barbados, represen-
tando aproximadamente 10 por
ciento de la poblaci6n de esa area.
Se trataba de hombres en su ma-
yor parte sin otra habilidad que la
agriculture, que nunca habian tra-
bajado en obras de construcci6n.
Muchos de ellos nunca habian visto
un ferrocarril y muy pocos sabian
lo que era un explosive. No ohs-
tante, las perforaciones en el Corte
Gaillard y el encendido de las loco-
motoras, todos fueron hechos por
los antillanos. Y, la mayor parte del
trabajo en el Canal tambi6n fue
efectuado por carpinteros, albafiiles
y pintores antillanos.
Muchos de estos hombres tam-
bien habian venido de Trinidad,
Curagao, St. Kitts, Santa Lucia.
St. Vicente, Grenada y Guadalupe.
Varios millares vinieron de Jamaica,
donde al principio las autoridades


de dicha isla se negaron a permitir
el reclutamiento, gravindosele con
1 libra esterlina a toda persona que
deseara partir para el Istmo. Este
impuesto, sumado al pasaje, sobre-
pasaba las posibilidades econ6micas
del obrero promedio. De modo que
de Jamaica vinieron en su mayoria
artesanos y no obreros de "pico y
pala". Entre 4,000 y 5,000 de estos
hombres fueron empleados como
artesanos durante los afios de acti-
vidad mis intense del proyecto.
La mayor parte de los antillanos,
sin embargo, fueron empleados
como ayudantes de mecAnicos, obre-
ros de muelles, meseros, sirvientes
de hoteles, trabajadores generals
en los hospitals y oficinas y em-
pleados dom6sticos.
Legaron una Leyenda a la Historia
Encomiando la contribuci6n de
estos empleados, Joseph Bishop, Se-
cretario de la Comisi6n Istmefia del
Canal, escribi6 en su libro "The
Panama Gateway"... "Centenares
de antillanos perdieron sus vidas
durante los 10 afios de peligroso

Vol. XV, No. 26 Viernes 11 de Febrero de 1977


La sequoia poco usual que preva-
leci6 en el Istmo durante la tempo-
rada lluviosa continue durante di-
ciembre y enero, estableci6ndose
durante ambos meses nuevos regis-
tros minimos de influjo al Lago
Catuin.
La acumulaci6n pluvial en las
19 estaciones del Istmo durante di-
ciembre fue de s6lo 1.94 pulgadas,
77 por ciento menos que el prome-
dio de 8.26 de acumulaci6n para
diciembre. En enero, el total de
precipitaci6n pluvial fue de 1.47
pulgadas, 60 por ciento menos que
el promedio de 3.69 pulgadas que
normalmente se registra durante ese
mes.
El influjo al Lago Gatiln durante
el mes de diciembre fue de 4,140
millones de pies cribicos (mpc), que
es much menos que el registro mi-
nimo previo de 5,781 establecido en
diciembre de 1928 y 82 por ciento
menos que el promedio usual para
ese mes.
El influjo de 1,132 para enero
rompi6 la marca previa de 1,284
mpc registrada en enero de 1975 y
represent s6lo una fracci6n del
promedio de 6,980 mpc para enero
en 63 afios. El nivel de influjo re-
fleja la cantidad de precipitaci6n en
la cuenca del lago durante el mes
anterior.
Los experts en meteorologia que
trabajan con el Ramo Meteorol6gi-
co e HidrogrAfico, explican que pue-
de esperarse que las estadisticas de
sequoia para diciembre y enero se
prolonguen ya que ahora si esta


quedarse. En vista de que carecian
de adiestramiento y habilidades es-
peciales, fueron empleados como
oficinistas, mensajeros y obreros lle-
nando asi la mayoria de los puestos
para los que no se requeria habi-
lidad especial.
Facilidades Educativas
Los antillanos exhortaron a sus
hijos a que aprovecharan las moder-
nas facilidades de educaci6n que
ofrecia la Zona del Canal para sa-
tisfacer las necesidades e interests
de estos estudiantes. Se educaron
en primero y segundo ciclos, en es-
cuelas vocacionales y en la Normal
de La Boca. MAs tarde algunos in-
gresaron a universidades en los
Estados Unidos.
Al transcurrir los afios, estos hi-
jos y nietos de obreros antillanos
pasaron a ser empleados del Canal
de Panama. Centenares de hombres
j6venes han sido adiestrados en el
Program de Aprendizaje del Canal,
perfeccionandose hasta llegar a con-
vertirse en artesanos altamente es-
