Two Fire Stations Go To Panama;

Commission To Run Eight Others

Fourth in a series of reports on
the work of the binational subcom-
mittees preparing for the implemen-
tation of the Canal treaties.
On October 1, the Balboa and
Coco Solito fire stations, two of the
ten stations in the Canal Zone
Fire Division, will be transferred to
Panama. According to Fire Protec-
tion Subcommittee co-chairman
Mike Gordon, the stations at Coro-
zal, Pedro Miguel, Gamboa, Rod-
man, Howard, Mount Hope, Gatun
and Fort Sherman will remain with
the Canal Commission. Mount Hope
will continue to be the main station
on the Atlantic side of the Isthmus,
and Corozal will become the main
station for the Pacific.
Co-chairing the subcommittee
with Gordon is Col. Guillermo
LeBlanc, Inspector General of the
Republic. of Panama Bomberos.
Gordon says the cooperation among
those serving on the subcommittee
is a continuation of the traditional
excellent and apolitical coordination
that has always existed between the
Bomberos and the Canal Zone Fire
Panama intends to offer the best
possible fire protection from the two

stations, Gordon said, and has ex-
pressed the intention of equipping
them with new firefighting vehicles.
He added that the training of the
Panamanian firemen is of the high-
est caliber and the dedication which
they bring to their work is well-
Gordon stated that everything
possible is being done to minimize
the number of employees who will
be negatively affected by the
transfer of Balboa and Coco Solito
stations. One of the Balboa com-
panies will be transferred to Coro-
zal, while the other and the com-
pany at Coco Solito will gradually
be reduced in number by attrition,
retirements and, only as a last resort,
A United States-Panama system
of primary and secondary responsi-
bility in responding to calls on the
basis of geographic location will
begin after treaty implementation,
Gordon said. Whichever of the two
firefighting forces, the Bomberos or
the Commission firemen, is closest
to the site of a fire or emergency
will respond generally first, with the
other serving as backup.

Chief of Veterinary Medicine 36 Years,

Bob Matheney Closes Out Canal Career

Dr. Robert G. Matheney, Chief,
Division of Veterinary Medicine,
today winds up his professional
career of 36 years with the Canal
Zone Health Bureau.
Born in Philadelphia, he was
6 months old when his mother
brought him to the Isthmus in the
summer of 1919 to join his father
who had come earlier to work in the
old Mechanical Division. She held
him tightly to her, still shaken, as
she disembarked after 10 days out
of New York aboard the Panama
Railroad Steamship Line's Allianca,
following one of the stormiest
voyages the ship had ever experi-
enced. All of the passengers were
seasick or terrified by the rough seas
and later Jessica Matheney, who
only a few days earlier had left the
comforts of her Vermont home, con-
fessed to her husband that she never
thought they would make it to the
The Matheneys occupied quar-
ters on the beach at Colon and later
moved to the Pacific side. Despite
her initial disenchantment, her tradi-
tional New England resolve pre-
vailed and Jessica Matheney adapted
to her new environment and the
Canal Zone was a happy home until
her husband retired in 1949 and
they moved to St. Petersburg, Fla.
Dr. Matheney attended Canal
Zone schools and after graduating
from Balboa High School, went to
Texas A&M University, where in
1943 he earned the degree, doctor
of veterinary medicine. In 1958, he
obtained a post-doctoral master's
degree magna cum laude in Public
Health from the Graduate School of
the University of Michigan at Ann
One of the few remaining em-
ployees of the Panama Canal to have
worked in the Republic of Panama,
Dr. Matheney began his career in
1943 as a veterinary intern in the
Colon Health Office. The following
year he was promoted to veterinary
medical. officer and in 1946 was
transferred in the same capacity to
the Panama Health Office, located
at that time on the second floor of
the old Panama Railroad Station.
Dr. Matheney was appointed to
his present position in the Health
Director's Office in 1952 and for the
past 26 years has been responsible
for all veterinary medical activities
on the Isthmus, including veterinary
hospitals,, quarantine stations, a
diagnostic and research laboratory,
and a large variety of public health
programs that still require his atten-
tion in the Republic.
In 1958 he attained speciality cer-
tification as a Diplomate, American
Board of Veterinary Public Health.
He is a member of a number of pro-
fessional organizations, including

the Canal Zone Veterinary Medical
Association, of which he is a founder
and past president; the Medical
Association of the Isthmian Canal
Zone; the American Veterinary Med-
ical Association; the Royal Society
of Health; the Association' of Mil-
itary Surgeons of the United States;
the Association of State and Ter-
ritorial Veterinarians and the Con-
ference of Public Health Vet-
Mrs. Matheney, who is from Wis-
consin and a graduate of Marquette
University, was employed at Gorgas
Hospital prior to their marriage.
A charming hostess and a member
of several civic and social groups in
the Canal Zone, Evelyn Matheney
has been most active as a painter

and member of the National League
of American Pen Women.
The Matheneys will remain on
the Isthmus for a few weeks, he to
attend to personal affairs and to
enjoy some dry season fishing in the
Perlas Islands while Evelyn closes
out her local activities.
When the Matheneys depart, they
will leave a host of friends. They
plan to go to the States and look
around for a place to retire, probably
in Florida or Arizona. Wherever
they settle, both plan to indulge
their favorite pastimes. As a Pan-
ama Canal history buff, he plans to
continue researching this subject in,
greater depth and perhaps do some
writing on his experiences here. As

Atlantic Area Breaks Own Christmas Bird Count Record

Paul Scharf jots down sightings of fellow birdwatcher Mabel Deshayes
during the National Audubon Society's 79th Annual Christmas Bird Count.
Scharf, a major assigned to the U.S. Southern Command, and Deshayes,
a visitor from Houston, were stationed on Gamboa's Pipeline Road, an
area rich in varieties of bird, plant and animal life.

The results of the 79th Audubon
Annual Christmas Bird Count are
being tallied, and it looks as though
Atlantic side birders may have done
it again.
Last year they set a world record
for sighting 344 different species
within a 15-mile diameter count
circle on the Atlantic side. This year
they topped that figure by 12,
making a grand total of 356 species.
The Canal Zone is divided into
three circles for the census. The
central count, made in the area in-
cluding the Gamboa Pipeline Road
and Barro Colorado Island, totaled
285 species; and on the Pacific side,
birders spotted 328 species. Both
counts will also probably exceed any
made elsewhere in the world.
But local birders still have plenty
of incentive to keep on counting. It
is estimated that there are about
544 different species of birds that
can be found on the Isthmus. Among
the rarer birds sighted this year was
the Rufous-vented Ground-cuckoo,
a bird half again the size of a domes-
tic chicken that was spotted by an
amateur birder on Pipeline Road.
Several experienced birders saw
another rare bird, the Sunbittern,
found exclusively along certain
streams in the Pipeline area.
The Christmas counts, sponsored

by the National Audubon Society,
involve more than 30,000 people in
North and Central America and
throughout the Caribbean. Their
goal is to identify as many different
species as possible, and in some
cases count the number of birds,
during a 24-hour period in late
December. The results are published
yearly in a two-inch thick volume.
Nathan Gale, chairman of the
Panama Audubon Society's scientific
committee and compiler of the
Canal Zone census, says that about
25 local birders participated. In
addition there was a group from
Canada, a lieutenant colonel from
New York, a student from Dart-
mouth University, a biochemist from
Stanford University Medical Center,
and the wife of a well-known ar-
chitect from Houston. All had heard
or read about the prolific environ-
ment of Panama and wrote Dr. Gale
volunteering to take part in this
year's count.
Mabel Deshayes of Houston was
here for the fourth time. In the
course of her avid bird watching
she has come to know the Canal
Zone and Panama like the back of
her hand and marvels at the ac-
cessibility residents here have to a
vast array of bird, plant and animal
life. She commented that in a few

minutes time one can leave home
and be "wading in a tropical
jungle stream," a stark contrast to
the sprawling concrete world of
Her husband, J. R. Deshayes, is
a member of the firm of Pierce,
Goodwin and Alexander Architects
which collaborated on the designing
of Houston International Airport.
He has served as president of the
Houston chapter of the Audubon
Society, which he helped to or-
ganize. Deshayes often accom-
panies his wife on bird watching
jaunts that have taken them to
Mexico, Nova Scotia, Alaska, the
Aleutian Islands, Gambell on the
St. Lawrence Islands, and of course,
Bird watching, says Mrs. Des-
hayes, is their idea of a perfect vaca-
tion. "It is a tremendous relaxation
and generally a good feeling to be
exposed to nature in all its forms and
Alone on this trip, she joined up
with a local birder for the Pacific
side count. The two were at their
stations on Plantation Road, about
a mile beyond Summit Gardens,
before dawn in order to catch the
nocturnal birds. "Daybreak in the
Canal Zone," she says, "is like an

explosion. You need ten pairs of
eyes to see all the birds."
Birders are usually equipped with
a pair of binoculars and a notebook
or tape recorder with which to keep
track of their sightings. Experienced
birders can recognize different
species by their profiles or calls, but
amateurs and pros alike rely on
Ridgely's Birds of Panama as the
best guidebook available for iden-
tifying local birds. The tape recorder
can serve a dual purpose in that a
bird's call can be taped and then
played back to lure the bird into
the open for more thorough observa-
Mrs. Deshayes sees the country
of Panama as having tremendous
potential to attract tours of bird
watchers and others who are in-
terested in the rich ecology. Already,
she says, serious birders come here
for the express purpose of seeing
the rare Quetzal, a bird found in the
highlands of Chiriqui province.

Dr. Gale agrees, adding that the
protection and preservation of the
forests is the key to any future
tourism of this kind.
There is no better indicator that
environmental changes are taking
place than changes in the numbers
and species of birds found in a given
area. As a result, the information
accumulated on Christmas counts
has been submitted to the State
Department by Dr. Gale and used
in the preparation of the Final En-
vironmental Impact Statement for
the New Panama Canal Treaties
published in December 1977.
The Christmas counts have proved
invaluable to biologists who have
used the information in choosing
project sites. Also scientists from the
United States have come here to
examine migratory birds that may
carry diseases fatal to livestock. With
this type of data they are able to
anticipate and vaccinate against an
outbreak of the disease.

Conteo Navideno de Aves

Sector Atlantico Supera su Propia Marca en Conteo de Aves

Paul Scharf anota el numero y especie de las aves que vista su compafiera
Mabel Deshayes durante el 799 Conteo Anual Navidefio de PAjaros de la
Sociedad Audubon. Scharf, mayor, miembro del Comando Sur de los Esta-
dos Unidos y Deshayes, que vive en Houston, se situaron en la Carretera
SPipeline de Gamboa, un Area rica en variedad de aves, plants y animals.

Los resultados verificados del
Conteo Anual Navidefio de PAjaros
N� 79 de la Sociedad Audubon se-
fialan al sector Atlantico como cam-
peones nuevamente.
El afio pasado establecieron una
marca mundial por haber avistado
344 species diferentes dentro del
Area Atlantica circular de conteo de
15 millas de diametro. Este afio su-
peraron esa cifra con un gran total
de 356 species.
La Zona del Canal esta dividida
en tires circulos para efectos del
censo. El conteo central realizado en
el Area que incluye la Carretera
Pipeline de Gamboa y la Isla de
Barro Colorado alcanz6 a identifi-
car 285 species. En el sector Paci-
fico 328 species fueron vistas.
Ambos conteos serian superiores a
cualquier otro hecho en cualquier
otra parte del mundo.
Los contadores locales todavia
tienen esperanzas de aumentar su
conteo. Se estima que hay alrededor
de 544 species diferentes de pAja-
ros 'que se pueden encontrar en el
Istmo. Entre los pajaros raros vistos
este afio esta el Cuco de Tierra Cu-
lirrojizo, mas grande que una galli-
na, avistado por un observador afi-
cionado en la Carretera Pipeline.
Varios observadores veterans vie-
ron el Bitor de Sol, especie de garza,
el cual se ve exclusivamente en
ciertos arroyos del Area Pipeline.
En los conteos de Navidad, patro-
cinados por la Sociedad Audubon,
participan mas de 30,000 personas
en America del Norte, Central y el
Caribe. Su meta es identificar tantas

species diferentes como sea posi-
ble, y en algunos casos contar pa-
jaros durante un period continue
de 24 horas a finales de diciembre.
Los resultados se publican anual-
mente en un tomo de dos pulgadas
de espesor.
Nathan Gale, president del co-
mit6 cientifico de la Sociedad
Audubon de Panama y compilador
del censo de la Zona del Canal, in-
forma que cerca de 25 observadores
locales de pajaros participaron a
nivel local. Ademas se encontraba
un grupo de CanadA, un teniente
coronel de Nueva York, un estudian-
te de la Universidad de Dartmouth,
un bioquimico del Centro M6dico
de la Universidad de Stanford, y la
esposa de un conocido arquitecto
de Houston. Todos habian oido o
leido sobre el habitat prolifico que
hay en PanamA y escribieron al
Dr. Gale solicitandole participar
voluntariamente en el conteo de
este afio.
Mabel Deshayes de Houston esta
aqui por cuarta vez. Su gran interns
en las aves del Area le ban llevado
a conocer la Zona del Canal y Pa-
namA como la palma de su mano.
Nota maravillada que los que aqui
resident tienen acceso a un vasto
conjunto de vida animal, vegetal y
de aves. Comenta 'que uno puede
dejar su casa y en unos minutes
estar "vadeando un arroyo selvA-
tico tropical", en contrast director
con el extenso mundo de concrete
de Houston.
Su esposo, J. R. Deshayes, es
miembro de la firm de arquitectos

Pierce, Goodwin y Alexander, la
cial particip6 en el disefio del
Aeropuerto Internacional de Hous-
ton. Ha sido president del capitulo
de Houston de la Sociedad Audu-
bon, el cual ayud6 a organizer.
Deshayes con frecuencia acompafia
a su esposa en sus viajes de obser-
vaci6n de pAjaros y en estas activi-
dades han visitado M6xico, Nueva
Escocia, Alaska, las Islas Aleutianas,
Gambell en las Islas de San Loren-
zo, y por supuesto PanamA.
La Sra. Deshayes dice que ob-
servar pajaros es tener una vaca-
ci6n perfect. "Estar expuesto a la
naturaleza en todas sus formas y
bellezas permit a uno sentirse
content y descansado".
En este viaje hizo pareja con un
observador local para el conteo del
sector Pacifico. Los dos se situaron
en la Carretera Plantation, cerca de
una milla mas allA de los Jardines
Summit, antes del amanecer para
observer los pajaros nocturnes. "El
alba en la Zona del Canal es como
una explosion", dice ella. "Se nece-
sitan diez pares de ojos para ver
todos los pajaros".
Los observadores de pAjaros ge-
neralmente Ilevan consigo binocu-
lares y un cuaderno o una grabadora
para registrar lo avistado. Los
veterans pueden reconocer dife-
rentes species por sus perfiles o sus
trinos, pero tanto profesionales como
aficionados usan Los PAjaros de
PanamA de Ridgely por considerar-
lo el mejor libro disponible para la
identificaci6n de pajaros,locales. La
grabadora tambi6n se puede usar

Afiade que ya hay aqui observado-
res que vienen con el decidido pro-
p6sito de ver el raro pAjaro Quetzal

El Dr. Gale concuerda con esta
opinion y agrega que la protecci6n
y preservaci6n de los bosques es la
clave de cualquier future turistico
de esta clase.
No hay mejor indicador de cam-
bios que ocurren en el ambiente
que los cambios en la vida de los
