Respect for Truth Is Essential

New Librarian-Curator Believes

Beverly C. Williams

A woman who sees the library as
a "haven of ideas and culture
where one has access to both
current and historical information"
has been appointed Librarian-
Curator of the Canal Zone Library-
Beverly C. Williams will fill the
vacancy left by the retirement of
Emily J. Price. Her first job with
the Canal Zone Library was 26
years ago as a Library Assistant,
and she has worked her way up
through the ranks from Librariana,
Reference Librarian, and the Chief
of Reader Services to her new
Born and raised in the Canal
Zone, Mrs. Williams has a master
of arts from Syracuse University
and a master of library service from
Columbia University. She is married
to Charles J. Williams, a locomotive
engineer retired from the Panama

Asked what quality she thinks is
necessary to be a good librarian,
Mrs. Williams answered that it is a
respect for truth, particularly in
reference work. She believes a per-
son must not be satisfied with what
she thinks is the answer to a ques-
tion, but must research deeply,
balance the information uncovered,
and then make a decision as to
what is correct or true.
She was involved in just that
kind of research in trying to assist
author Kenneth R. Andrews with a
problem encountered while prepar-
ing his edition of The Last Voyage
of Drake and Hawkins.
The writer needed to find a loca-
tion in Panama where a particular
skirmish between the English and
Spanish fleet took place and wrote
to the Canal Zone Library asking
for help. After poring over old maps
of Panama for many hours, Mrs.
Williams realized that the problem
was a confusion of two names that
sounded alike but were actually
different places, Capira and Capi-
rilla. With that information and a
description of the location from
Sir Francis Drake's log, she was
able to pinpoint the exact spot at
the junction of two rivers where the
fight took place.
The author apparently appre-
ciated Mrs. Williams efforts, as she
is given credit in the preface to his
She says integrity is also required
of a librarian, particularly in de-
ciding which books should be added
to the library's collection. One's
personal tastes or feelings should
not rule, she says, in evaluating the
merits of a book.
In her new position Mrs. Williams
will be responsible for the smooth
operation of the entire Library-
Museum, a challenging way to
begin the new year.

Science Project Brings Newsy Note From Nicaragua

Mrs. Dale Conway's fifth graders
at Coco Solo Elementary School
have been at it again, launching
bottles at sea and reaping the
It all began with the school
year 1975-76 when students in
Mrs. Conway's class were learning
about ocean currents and she ex-
plained that one way scientists
study the flow of the sea is by the
dropping of bottles (bottle post) at
known positions and noting the
position of recovery. Like the stu-
dents in that first class, this year's
class yvas eager to test its new
knowledge of the bottle drift.
On September 29, Capt. Bob
Jensen, Master of the SS Cristobal,
gladly accepted 18 bottles and
agreed to have them tossed into
the ocean while the vessel was
enroute to New Orleans.
The first bottle to be heard from
was found off the coast of Nicara-
gua by Walis Juluas who lives in
the Moravia Mission at Bluefields.
It was Mike King's bottle and be

the bottle at 7 a.m. on October 28
as he was walking along the beach

24 miles from his hometown, Tas-
bapounie. In a letter laboriously

written in English, he told Mike
that he has five children, is build-
ing a new house, and had recently
acquired a passport, sending along
the number of it. He sent also a
well worn snapshot of the family
and asked Mike to send him one
of himself.

The students were so excited, to
hear that one of their bottles had
actually been found that they de-
cided to do something nice for the
finder. They collected all of their
old comic books and held a sale
and made about $10. Then they
wrote letters to him, sending their

best wishes and a check as a con-.
tribution to the new house.
Naturally, the rest of the bottle
launchers are anxiously watching
the mail box, hopeful to hear that
their bottles have been spotted.
Lucky Mike is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. Hiram King of Coco Solo.

Amos Milwood Brings Gold Medals

Back From Central American Games

Amos Milwood, recreation assist-
tant at Howard Elementary School,
was the recipient of three gold
medals at the Central American
Games held November 25 through
December 3 at the Flor Blanca
Stadium, San Salvador, El Salvador.
Milwood participated in four
events, three individual and one as
a member of the mile relay team.
The first gold medal was for his
performance in the 400-meter hur-
dles, running the distance in 55 sec-
onds; the second was for winning
the 110-meter hurdles event in
14.7 seconds, setting a new Central
American Games record held by
another Panamanian, Ricardo Wor-

rell, since 1973; and the third gold
medal was for his performance as
a member of the mile relay team.
Milwood, 28, a graduate of the
National Institute, graduated from
Panama University where he ma-
jored in physical education. He won
gold, silver and bronze medals in
the 1973 Bolivarian Games in Pan-
ama and is preparing to participate
in the 13th Central American and

Medellin, Colombia in July.

In an effort to improve the quality
and performance of Government,
President Carter recently directed
a memorandum to heads of depart-
ments asking them to bring to his
attention outstanding contributions
by civilian and military Federal
employees, particularly in the area
of energy conservation.
The President indicated that to
show the importance he attaches to
encouraging Federal employees to
develop and propose innovative
ideas, he would recognize the major
contributions himself.
President Carter will send per-
sonal letters of congratulations to
employees who submit ideas to the
Suggestion Awards Program which
result in first-year benefits of $5,000
or more. Each letter will be accom-
panied by an appropriate plaque and
certificate. He also will recognize
energy-saving actions that are espe-
cially significant and deserve addi-
tional recognition. The best sugges-
tions will be considered for Pres-
idential Management Improvement
Awards, to be presented at the
White House.
Calling attention to the Pres-
ident's campaign, the Lieutenant
Governor, chairman of the Canal's
Incentive Awards Program, notes
that this program differs from the
Presidential Cost Reduction Cam-
paign conducted in 1975-76, in that
it involves the President on a con-
tinuing basis in incentive awards
programs for civilian and military
personnel. The Lieutenant Governor
points out President Carter's em-
phasis on the importance of having
Federal personnel at all levels par-
ticipate in helping improve and
restructure Government. He also
notes that President Carter has

said that he doesn't feel Govern-
ment employees ". ..are recognized
often enough" and "The absence of
adequate recognition is something
that I hope can be alleviated."
In the memorandum to heads of
bureaus and independent units, the
Lieutenant Governor urged man-
agerial and supervisory personnel to
actively encourage employees to
submit ideas and to give full sup-
port to this special effort.
The need for improvement has
been established, the lines of com-
munication are open, and official
recognition and financial reward are
.awaiting. Now it's up to the em-
ployees to take the time and effort
to submit ideas.

Community Is Lifeblood of CZ. Donor Program

January is National Blood Donor
Month, and in calling attention to
the event President Jimmy Carter
noted that "We cannot meet our
needs in this area by donations only
during the month of January.
Throughout the year we must be
conscious that these needs exist and
respond to them generously and
with compassion."
This is especially true here in the
Canal Zone, where the only avail-
able supply of blood is on a day-to-
day basis from community mem-
bers. There are no support facilities
from which the blood banks
at Gorgas and Coco Solo hospitals
can borrow blood in case of an
The bank at Gorgas Hospital
uses an average of 150 units, or
pints, per month, but in an emer-
gency situation one person may re-
quire 30 or even 50 units of blood.
About 75 percent of the blood
collected comes from U.S. military
personnel, particularly from the
Army. Only enough blood is drawn
each week to replace what was used
the week before, since the blood
expires after 21 days and must
be thrown away. Blood bank
employees keep a careful watch on
the inventory, and last month the
expiration rate was a mere
2 percent.
Except in instantes ht-r, %hole
)i I. .. j '/ f (;t

blood or Rh negative blood is re-
quired, the blood banks are not
concerned today with collecting
rare blood types. The old theories
of the universal donor are once
again in use by virtue of the fact
that plasma can be extracted from
the two most common types of
blood, A positive and 0 positive,
and the packed cells that remain
can be given to almost anyone with-
out danger of a transfusion reaction.
Donors cannot request that their
blood be used on a specific patient
except in a case where a person
donates his blood beforehand to be
used during his own surgery.
To qualify as a donor, a person
must be generally in good health,
be between the ages of 17 and 66,
weigh more than 110 pounds, never
have had hepatitis, and not have
given blood within the last 8 weeks.
The blood banks at Gorgas and Coco
Solo hospitals are open- from 7 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. every workday and
24 hours a day in an emergency.
In gathering information for the
story, this reporter volunteered to
give a pint of blood, and here is a
first-hand report of the experience:
First, a finger is pricked and a
drop of blood is taken for a hemo-
globin count, to assure that the"
donor is- not anemic.
Next, the donor fills out a form,
giving his name and place of em-
n ~ ;; ,1ii ..: *,,! ** 0;

ployment and a short medical his-
tory that indicates whether he has
had any recent illnesses or is cur-
rently taking any medication that
would preclude his giving blood.
That taken care of, the donor
relaxes on a comfortable recliner in
the blood bank while a laboratory
technician takes his blood pressure
and temperature. Afterward, the
donor is asked to squeeze on a rub-
ber ball so that the technician can
find a good vein from which to
draw the blood. When he does, the
area is scrubbed several times and
the needle is inserted, the only mo-
ment of discomfort. A tube carries
the fresh blood into a sterile bag
that holds 1 pint of blood and can
be immediately refrigerated.
It takes only about 5 minutes for
the blood to be drawn, and then
the donor is offered a beverage,
while resting for another 10 min-
utes, from a choice of orange juice,
ginger ale, apple juice or bourbon.
If he gives blood at lunch or dinner-
time, the donor gets a ticket for a
free meal in the hospital cafeteria.
The whole procedure takes about
half an hour and is almost pain free.
And in the words of our President.
"A donation of blood is an unequal-
ed expression of concern for one's
fellow man and a source of deepest
satisfaction to both donor and

Of all of Santa's helpers in the Canal Zone during Christmas season, few
were more cheerful and helpful than the sales-clerks in the Balboa Retail
Store's Card 'N Candle Shop. Betsy Weeks, standing, and Sara P. ChAvez,
managed the dual job of selling wrappings and ribbons, cards and
candles while lifting the spirits of weary last minute shoppers right up
until the shop closed Christmas Eve. Avelina Hinds, the third member
of the merry trio, was working another shift when this photograph
was taken.

versidad de Columbia. Esta casada
con Charles J. Williams, maquinista
de locomotora, jubilado del Ferro-
carril de PanamA, y tienen dos hijos,
Patrick y Paul.
Cuando se le pregunt6 que cua-
lidad piensa ella que es necesaria

para ser una buena bibliotecaria, la
Sra. Williams respondi6 que es el
respeto a la verdad, particularmente
en el trabajo de referencia. Ella opi-
na que una persona no debe queda.
satisfecha con lo que ella piensa es
la respuesta a una pregunta, pero
deberA efectuar investigaciones mas
a fondo, pesar la informaci6n descu-
b)ierta, y luego tomar una decision
sobre lo que es correct o veridico.
Ella estuvo involucrada justamen-
te en una investigaci6n de esta na-
turaleza al tratar de ayudar al autor
Kenneth R. Andrews con un pro-
blema con que se vio enfrentado
cuando preparaba su obra The Last
Voyage of Drake and Hawkins (El
Ultimo Viaje de Drake y Hawkins).
El autor precisaba localizar el
sitio en Panama donde tuvo lugar
un encuentro entire las armadas in-
glesas y espafiolas, y escribi6 a la
Biblioteca de la Zona del Canal so-
licitando su ayuda. Despubs de es-
tudiar escrupulosamente los anti-
guos mapas de Panama durante
muchas horas, la Sra. Williams se
dio cuenta.que el problema era uno
de confusion entire dos nombres que
tenian el mismo sonido pero eran
actualmente lugares diferentes-Ca-
pira y Capirilla. Con esa informa-
ci6n y una descripci6n de la ubica-
ci6n tomada del diario de Sir Fran-
cis Drake, pudo sefialar el punto
exact done desembocan dos rios
y donde ocurri6 la lucha.
El autor aparentemente agrade-
ci6 los esfuerzos de la Sra. Williams,
y le concedi6 reconocimiento en su
Ella dice que la integridad es
tambi6n requerida de una bibliote-
caria, particularmente cuando tiene
que decidir qu6 libros deberin ser
anadidos a la colecci6n de la bi-
blioteca. Los gustos o sentimientos
de uno no deberAn influir, dice ella,
cuando se eval6an los meritos de
'in libro.
En su nueva posici6n, la Sra.
Williams sera responsible por la
operaci6n de toda la Biblioteca-
Museo, un verdadero reto para ini-
ciar el nuevo afio.

mente dirigi6 un memorandum a
los jefes de departamentos pidi6n-
doles que le presented las contribu-
ciones sobresalientes efectuadas por
los empleados federales civiles y mi-
litares, particularmente en lo refe-
rente a la conservaci6n de energia.
El President indic6 que para de-
mostrar la importancia que 61 ha
puesto en alentar a los empleados
federales a que desarrollen y some-
tan ideas innovadoras, 61 personal-
mente dara reconocimiento a las
contribuciones de mAxima impor-
El President Carter dirigirA car-
tas personales de felicitaci6n a los
empleados que envien ideas al Pro-
grama de Premios por Sugerencias
y que resulten en beneficios de
$5,000 o mAs durante el primer aiio.
Cada carta serA acompaiada por
una placa y un certificado. Tambi6n
darA reconocimiento a las acciones
que resulten en ahorros de energia
que sean especialmente significati-
vos y que merezcan algo adicional.
Las mejores sugerencias serAn con-
sideradas para el Premio Presiden-
cial por Mejoramiento Administra-
tivo, y los premios serAn presenta-
dos en la Casa Blanca.
Con relaci6n a la campafia del
President, el Vicegobernador y
President del Programa de Pre-
mios por Incentivo, hace saber que
este program es distinto al de la
campafia Presidencial para la Re-
ducci6n de Costos que fue Ilevada
a cabo en 1975-76, y el Presidente
estA continuamente involucrado en
los programs de premios por; in-
centivo para el personal civil y mi-
litar. El Vicegobernador observa
que el Presidente Carter consider
muy important que el personal Fe-
deral de todos los niveles participe
en el mejoramiento y la reestructu-
ra del Gobierno. Tambi6n recalca
que el Presidente Carter ha mani-
festado que en su opini6n los em-

pleados del Gobierno . no son
reconocidos con suficiente frecuen-
cia" y "La falta del reconocimiento
adecuado es algo que yo espero
poder remediar".
En el memorAndum a las diver-
sas direcciones y unidades indepen-
dientes, el Vicegobernador insta al
personal administrative y supervi-
sor que alienten a los empleados a
que sometan sus ideas y que den su
apoyo pleno a este esfuerzo es-
La necesidad de mejorar ha sido
establecida, las lines de comunica-
ci6n estan abiertas, y el reconoci-

rio estAn esperando. Ahora le co-
rresponde a los empleados dedicar
el tiempo y el esfuerzo para some-
ter sus ideas.

Comunidad Apoya Programa de Donantes de Sangre

Enero ha sido designado el Mes
Nacional del Donante. RefiriBndose
a la ocasi6n, el Presidente Carter
coment6 que "No es possible satis-
facer nuestras necesidades s6lo con
donaciones durante el mes de ene-
ro. Pero durante el afio, debemos
estar conscientes de la existencia de
estas necesidades y responder a ellas
con generosidad y compasi6n".
Esto es verdad, especialmente aqui
en la Zona del Canal, donde la Ani-
ca fuente de sangre son las dona-
ciones hechas dia tras dia por miem-
bros de la comunidad. No hay una
fuente alterna en que los Bancos de
Sangre de los hospitals Gorgas y
Coco Solo puedan obtener sangre
prestada en caso de emergencia.
El banco del Hospital Gorgas usa
un promedio de 150 unidades, o
pintas, por mes, pero en una situa-
ci6n de emergencia una persona
puede necesitar entire 30 y 50 pin-
tas de sangre. Aproximadamente
75 por ciento de la sangre que se
recibe procede del personal military
estadounidense, particularmente del
Ej6rcito. S6lo sacan suficiente san-
gre cada semana para reponer lo
que se us6 la semana anterior, ya
que la sangre vence despu6s de
21 dias y tiene que ser desechada.
Los empleados del Banco de San-
gre mantienen una vigilancia estric-
ta sobre el inventario, y el mes pa-
sado el promedio de vencimiento
fue de s6lo 2 por ciento.
Excepto en casos cuando toda la
sangre o la sangre tipo Rh negative

es requerida, los Bancos de Sangre
hoy dia no se preocupan por obte-
ner tipo de sangre poco com6n. Las
viejas teorias del donante universal
estAn una vez mas en uso por vir-
tud del hecho de que el plasma
puede ser extraido de los dos tipos
de sangre mAs comunes, A y 0 po-
sitivo; y las c6lulas compactadas
pueden ser administradas a cual-
quiera sin peligro de que tengan
una reacci6n a causa de la trans-
Los donantes no pueden solicitar
que su sangre sea administrada a
determinado paciente, except en
caso de que una persona dona su
sangre de antemano para ser usada
durante su propia operaci6n.
Para ser donante, una persona
debe estar generalmente en buena
salud, tener entire 17 y 66 afios de
edad, pesar mAs de 110 libras, nun-
ca haber tenido hepatitis, y no ha-
her dado sangre durante las uilti-
mas 8 semanas. Los Bancos de San-
gre de los hospitals Gorgas y Coco
Solo estin abiertos de 7 a.m. a
4:30 p.m. todos los dias laborables,
y las 24 horas del dia en una emer-
Mientras recababa informaci6n
para este articulo, la reporter don6
1 pinta de sangre, y he aqui el
relato personal de su experiencia:
Primero, se pincha un dedo y se
toma una muestra de sangre para
el conteo de la hemoglobina, ase-
gurAndose asi de que el donante no
es anemico.

Despubs, el donante Ilena un for-
mulario, dando su nombre y lugar
de empleo y un breve historical m6-
dico que indique si ha tenido algu-
nas enfermedades recientemente o
si estA actualmente tomando medi-
cinas que impidan que done sangre.
Despubs, el donante descansa en
una c6rrioda silla reclinatoria en el
Banco de Sangre, mientras un tec-
nico de laboratorio toma su presi6n
y su temperature. Luego se le pide
al donante que apriete una bola de
caucho para que el t6cnico pueda
encontrar una buena vena de don-
de sacar la sangre. Cuando la en-
cuentra, limpia el Area varias veces
e introduce la aguja, la Anica mo-
lestia. Por medio de un tubo, la
sangre es llevada a una bolsa esteri-
lizada que tiene capacidad para
1 pinta y puede refrigerarse inme-
S61lo toma unos 5 minutes sacar
la sangre, y luego se ofrece al do-
nante una bebida, ya sea de jugo
de naranja, ginger ale, jugo de man-
zana o whiskey, mientras reposa
otros 10 minutes. Si el donante da
sangre durante la hora de almuerzo,
se le da un tiquete para que coma
gratis en la cafeteria del hospital.
El procedimiento complete toma
aproximadamente media hora y no
duele nada. Y segin las palabras
del Presidente Carter, "Una dona-
ci6n de sangre es una expresi6n de
interns incomparable por nuestros
pr6jimos y motivo de profunda sa-
tisfacci6n tanto para el donante
como para el que la recibe".

De todos los ayudantes de Santa Claus en la Zona del Canal durante las
festividades navidefias, pocos eran tan amables o serviciales que las vende-
doras de la secci6n "Card 'N Candle" en el Almac6n de Venta en Balboa.
Betsy Weeks, de pie, y Sara P. ChAvez vendieron papel de envolver, cintas,
tarjetas y velas. Avelina Hinds, tercer miembro del alegre trio, estaba
trabajando en otro turno cuando se tom6 esta foto.
