The Board of Directors of the
Panama Canal Company has voted
to seek an increase in Canal tolls.
Citing the anticipated increase in
the cost of operations of the Canal
after entry into force of the Panama-
Canal treaties on October 1, 1979,
the Board said that a study had
been conducted to evaluate the
adequacy of tolls to cover the costs
of operation of the Canal over a
three-year period starting with fiscal
year 1980.
Conclusions of the study were-
.. In fiscal years 1980, 1981, and
19"82, revenues will be insufficient to
cover the costs of operation of the
Panama Canal and related facilities,
S. . To recover over a three-year
period the full amount of these rev-
enue deficiencies would require in-
creasing toll rates by 21.8 percent as
of October 1,
S. . An increase in the rates of
tolls of up to 25 percent would have
only a negligible effect on cargo
shipped through the Canal.and on
the amount of additional revenues
derived from the rate increase,
S. . An increase in the rates of
tolls in the amounts recommended
would not have a significant impact
on the quality of the human en-
vironment within the meaning of
the National Environmental Policy
Act of 1969.
Increases called for in the pro-
posal would bring the rate per Pan-
ama Canal ton (equivalent to 100

cubic feet of revenue cargo or pas-
senger capacity) from $1.29 to
$1.57. Ships in ballast would pay
at the rate of $1.25 a Panama Canal
ton instead of the former $1.03.
The tolls for vessels such as war-
ships and hospital ships, which pay
on a displacement ton, would be
increased from the present 72 cents
to 88 cents.
The study was based on current
law (which requires interest pay-
ments to the U.S. Treasury) as
modified by the Panama Canal
Treaty of 1977.
After considering the study, the
Board voted and passed a resolu-
tion to announce the increase in
rates, subject to the approval of
the President of the United States.
It is noted that differing ver-
sions of Treaty implementation leg-
islation now under consideration by
Congress would impose differing
definitions of costs. Depending on
the form of the legislation which
would supersede current law, the
required level of toils could be dif-
ferent from those mentioned above.
The proposal must now be pub-
lished in the Federal Register, invit-
ing all interested parties to submit
comments or arguments at public
After the hearings, the proposal
must again be reviewed and, if ap-
propriate, revised before submis-
sion to the President, who must
approve the increase before it is

press release on Saturday, March 24,
following a meeting of a delegation
from the House Merchant Marine
and Fisheries Subcommittee with
Panamanian President Aristides
Royo and Panama Canal Authority
Director General Gabriel Lewis
Members of the U.S. Merchant
Marine and Fisheries Committee
Congressional delegation met with
President Aristides Royo and of-
ficials of the Panama Canal Au-
thority today and have clarified
several issues which have been of
concern to committee members
during consideration of Panama
Canal Treaty enabling legislation.
"I am very pleased that we have
arrived at agreement in our under-
standing of a number of key issues
which we felt ought to be resolved
before proceeding with our legisla-
tion. We are pleased that President
Royo and Ambassador Gabriel Lewis
Galindo have been willing to sit
down with us in a spirit of
genuine cooperation and arrive at
an understanding which will be of
benefit to both our nations," Con-

gressman David Bowen (D-Miss.),
chairman of the delegation, stated
"President Royo and Ambassador
Lewis yesterday confirmed that the
Republic of Panama will not collect
retroactive taxes or other charges
or impose sanctions on U.S. busi-
nesses or organizations operating
in the Canal Zone for their ac-
tivities prior to October 1, 1979.
Also, Canal toll rates, which are
established by the United States,
need not be set at levels designed
to produce revenues to cover the

or abandoned buildings, such as

to us that it was not a treaty obliga-
tion to upgrade these facilities,"
Bowen explained. "On the other
hand," he noted, "the active facil-
ities which will be turned over to
Panama will be in a fully oper-
ational and maintained condition."

Three members of the Gorgas Hospital laboratory staff They are, from left, Dora Austin, supervisor, Norma
have been trained to operate and maintain the hos- Cohen and Esther Guardia. The instrument can give
pital's new computerized blood chemical analyzer, a test result in less than seven minutes.

New Computer Analyzes Blood Samples In Minutes

The Gorgas Hospital Laboratory
has installed a sophisticated new
instrument to automatically analyze
blood serum and other body fluids.
The chemistry supervisor and two
special chemists at Gorgas Hos-
pital have completed a weeklong
training session in Wilmington, Del.,
on the operation and maintenanceof
the new computerized blood chem-
ical analyzer.
The Automatic Clinical Analyzer
(ACA) performs rapid and accurate
chemical analyses that were formerly
done manually. The instrument rep-
resents an investment of about $130,000
and gives the laboratory the added
capacity to respond to a growing
need for quick and accurate diag-
nostic tests.
Chemical analyses represent the
largest single group of clinical tests
performed in the laboratory. A test
result can be obtained from the
instrument in less than seven min-
utes, making it extremely beneficial

in emergency cases. This utility of
the ACA for both routine and emer-
gency use makes it a valuable asset
to the laboratory. The improved ac-
curacy of tests on the instrument
nearly eliminates the possibility of
human error.
The instrument has a basic capac-
ity of performing 29 separate diag-
nostic tests and is presently pro-
grammed to perform the tests most
commonly used at Gorgas Hospital.
Other tests are expected to be added

to the instrument in the future. The
tests performed on the ACA range
from a simple analysis of glucose
level in the blood to more sophis-
ticated analyses such as those used
in cases of suspected liver disease.

Canal Zone College Raises The Roof

Bohio building means hauling...


and braiding piles of palm fronds.

The Canal Zone College had a
ground breaking ceremony for an
addition to its facilities on Feb-
ruary 23. Now, just a month later,
the Student Senate is planning the
dedication of the new "building"
-a 24-foot by 14-foot bohio.
Occupying a prime location with
a breath-taking view of the bridge
and the Canal, the bohio sits on a
hillside behind the College library.
It will provide students and teachers

with a fresh air alternative to the
College lounges as a place for re-
laxing between classes or doing some
last-minute brushing up.
The bohio was built by a Gam-
boa-based construction company and
was paid for by the Student Senate.
But the driving force behind the
project was College sophomore Clea
It was Clea who got the ball roll-
ing at the College and then con-

tacted the Engineering Division con-
cerning maps and diagrams for the
proposed structure. She stood in
line at Section I and B to buy wood
and nails. And she-buttonholed every-
one from employees of the Main-
tenance and Electrical divisions and
the Grounds Management Branch
to a colonel at the 193d Infantry
Brigade to help with such unusual
tasks as delivering palm fronds from
Gamboa for the bohio roof and

400-pound benches that are now
embedded in the concrete floor.
They responded above and beyond
the call of duty, and Clea credits
them with a big part in the success
of the undertaking.
While the Student Senate has
voted to affix a plaque to the struc-
ture naming it The Canal Zone
College Bohio, they emphasize that
it is a facility open for use by the
community. Its breezy location, along

with the fact that it will sport a
barbecue pit and electrical outlets,
makes it a prime spot for a picnic
or private party.
A dedication ceremony and a
community cookout to inaugurate
the new bohio is set for Friday,
April 20. From 4 to 8 p.m. hotdogs,
hamburgers and soft drinks will be
for sale and sports activities are
being planned. Live music is sched-
uled from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Olga Osorno, left, and Natalia Mashburn dance the "tamborito" for fellow
students, teachers and parents gathered for the St. Mary's School second
annual Latin American Day celebration. Eighth graders studying Latin
American history planned the special day to introduce seventh graders
to the customs and culture of 16 Latin American countries or locations,
such as Panama and the San Bias Islands. Under the guidance of their
teacher Toni Williams-Sanchez, the students presented typical music and
dancing and designed and constructed booths,where they served native
foods which they had prepared and passed out small souvenirs of
each country represented.

Shutterbugs May Join Diablo Camera Club

Isthmian shutterbugs, experienced
and amateurs alike, and others in-
terested in photography, are invited
to participate in the instructional
programs and activities of the Dia-
blo Camera Club.
Meetings are regularly held on
the first and third Thursday of
each month, at room 3, Panama
Canal Training Center.
Color and black and white prints
as well as color slide work are
covered extensively. Competition is
encouraged and monthly as well
as annual slide contests are held.
Photographic exhibits are held reg-
ularly and one has been on dis-
play this week at the Canal Zone

The club offers variety in its pro-
grams. Guest speakers who spe-
cialize in some phase of photogra-
phy are often featured at meetings.
There are travelogues and slide pro-
grams, the popular photography
field trips and periodically photog-
raphy courses for beginners are offered
free of charge.
John Victor Brown is the current
president of the Camera Club;
Dr. Alan A. Lawrence is vice pres-
ident; and Irene Gauger is color
slide competition chairman. The
club is open to anyone and guests
are welcome to the meetings and
invited to join in the programs.

The Office of the Financial Vice
President has announced the fol-
lowing information recently cir-
culated by the Treasury Depart-
ment on the issuance of two new
series of U.S. savings bonds and
several other changes in the savings
bond program.
Of particular interest to the Canal
employee is the fact that the sale
of Series E bonds will terminate
December 31, 1979, and that Series
E and H bonds have dates beyond
which they will no longer earn
Effective January 2, 1980, new
EE and HH bonds will replace the
E and H bonds that are being
sold at banks and other savings
institutions until the end of the
year. Payroll sales of E bonds will
be converted to the new series EE
bonds in the period from January 2
to June 30, 1980.
Holders of E and H bonds should
be aware of the following changes
affecting these bonds:
Bonds purchased between 1941
and April 1952 will not be extended
again when they fall due between
1981 and April 1992, after bearing
interest for 40 years;
Series E bonds and savings notes
purchased after April 1952 will re-
ceive a further 10-year extension.

$18.75 will no longer be available);

$50 face value. Other denomina-
tions will be $75, $100, $200, $500,

C.Z. Boat Information

To Be Given to Panama

To Prepare for Treaty

Information on boats registered
in the Canal Zone will be given to
Panama as part of the planning

and operated in the Republic of
Panama after October 1, 1979.
Since boats without valid inspec-
tions are not considered to be cur-
rently registered, only information
on boats that have a current inspec-
tion will be provided.
Boat owners whose boats do not
have a current inspection are no-
tified that they should have their
boats inspected by April 20.

La Junta de Directores de la
Compafiia del Canal de Panama ha
acordado solicitar un aumento de
los peajes del Canal.
Citando el aumento anticipado
en el costo operacional del Canal
despu6s de la entrada en vigencia
de los tratados del Canal de Pana-
ma el 10 de octubre de 1979, la
Junta dijo que se habia hecho un
studio con el prop6sito de evaluar
la suficiencia de los peajes para
cubrir los costs de operaci6n del
Canal durante un period de tres
afios a partir del aiio fiscal 1980.
Las conclusions de studio
. . . Durante los afos fiscales
1980, 1981, y 1982, los ingresos se-
rAn insuficientes para cubrir los
costs de operaci6n del Canal de
PanamA e instalaciones afines,
S. . Para recobrar la cantidad
total de estas deficiencies en el in-
greso durante un period de tres
afios, sera necesario aumentar los
peajes un 21.8 por ciento efectivo
el 1� de octubre.
S. .Un aumento en los peajes
de hasta 25 por ciento s6lo tendria un
efecto insignificant en cuanto a la
cantidad de carga eriviada a trav6s
del Canal de Panama y en la canti-
dad de ingresos adicionales deriva-
dos del aumento de los peajes.
. . Un aumento en los peajes
en las cantidades recomendadas no
tendria un efecto mayor en la cali-
dad del factor human dentro de
lo estipulado en la Ley de Politica
Ambiental Nacional de 1969.
La propuesta aumentaria el peaje

Nueva Computadora Analiza Sangre en Minutos

El Laboratorio del Hospital Gor-
gas recientemente install un nuevo
y complejo instrument que sera
usado para analizar automatica-
mente el suero sanguineo asi como
tambi6n otros fluidos del cuerpo.
La supervisor de quimica y dos
quimicas especiales del Hospital Gor-
gas fueron adiestradas durante una
semana en Wilmington, Delaware,
en la operaci6n y mantenimiento
del nuevo analizador del compues-
to quimico de la sangre que fun-
ciona con computadora.
El Analizador Clinico AutomAti-
co (ACA) ejecuta rapida y exacta-
mente los andlisis quimicos que an-
teriormente eran efectuados ma-
nualmente. Este instrument repre-
senta una inversi6n de aproxima-
damente $130,000 e incrementa la
capacidad del laboratorio para res-
ponder a la creciente necesidad de
obtener diagn6sticos ripidos y exactos.
El analisis del compuesto quimi-
co es el analisis clinic que con
mis frecuencia se realize en el la-
boratorio. El resultado del examen

puede obtenerse del instrument en
menos de siete minutes, lo cual re-
presenta una gran ventaja en casos
de emergencia. La utilidad del ACA
en casos rutinarios asi como en los
de emergencia, es prueba de que
ha sido una adquisici6n valiosa para
el laboratorio. La mayor exactitud
en los examenes, por medio de este
instrument, practicamente elimina
la posibilidad del error human.
El instrument tiene una capaci-
dad basica para realizar 29 pruebas

diagn6sticas, y actualmente esta pro-
gramado para efectuar los exame-
nes que son mas comunmente em-
pleados en el Hospital Gorgas. Se
espera afiadir otros exAmenes al ins-
trumento en el future. Los exAme-
nes Ilevados a cabo dentro del al-
cance del ACA, incluyen desde un
simple andlisis del nivel de glucosa
en la sangre hasta los analisis mas
complicados como los que se em-
plean en casos donde se sospecha
que hay afecci6n hepAtica.

I La Universidad de la Zona Construye Bohio


- 4 k !-

La construcci6n del bohio significa transportar . . .


y entrelazar un mont6n de pencas.

El 23 de febrero, la Universidad
de la Zona del Canal tuvo una
ceremonia de inicio de construc-
ci6n de una adici6n a sus instala-
ciones. Ahora, s6lo un mes mis
tarde, el Senado Estudiantil esta
programando la inauguraci6n del
nuevo "edificio"-un bohio pana-
mefio de 24 pies de largo por 14
pies de ancho.
Ocupando un lugar ideal con una
vista panoramica grandiosa del puente
y del Canal, el bohio esti ubicado
en una ladera del cerro detras de la

biblioteca de la Universidad. Este
bohio brindarA a los estudiantes
y maestros otro lugar, ademis de
los salones de la Universidad, para
descansar entire classes o para re-
pasar asignaturas a iltimo moment.
El bohio fue construido por una
compafiia de construcci6n en Gam-
boa y pagado por el Senado Estu-
diantil. Pero la persona que propul-
s6 este proyecto fue Clea Efthi-
miadis, estudiante de segundo aio
en la Universidad.
Fue Clea la que inici6 el movi-

miento pro-bohio en la Universi-
dad y la que consigui6 de la Divi-
si6n de Ingenieria mapas y diagra-"
mas para la propuesta estructura.
Form6 fila en las Secciones I y B
para comprar madera y clavos. Con
su insistencia, convenci6 a todos,
desde empleados de las Divisiones
de Mantenimiento, de Electricidad
y del Ramo de Mantenimiento de
Predios hasta un coronel de la Bri-
gada 193 de Infanteria para que
ayudaran con las tareas poco usua-
les del transport de pencas desde

Gamboa para el techo del bohio y
de bancas de 400 libras que ahora
estan fijadas en el piso de concrete.
Estos sefiores respondieron a su su-
plica y Clea les atribuye gran parte
del 6xito obtenido.

El Senado Estudiantil ha decidi-
do colocar una placa en la estruc-
tura llamandola El Bohio de la Uni-
versidad de la Zona del Canal y
afirma que la instalaci6n esta a la
disposici6n de la comunidad. Su
ubicaci6n al aire libre, su instala-

ci6n para barbacoa y los tomaco-
rrientes lo hace un lugar apropiado
para picnic o fiesta privada.

Una ceremonia de dedicaci6n y
una comida al aire libre para inau-
gurar el nuevo bohio han Sido fija-
das para el viernes 20 de abril.
De 4 a 8 p.m. habra venta de
"perros calientes", hamburguesas y
refrescos, y tambien actividades de-
portivas. Tambi6n habra m6sica
desde las 8 p.m. hasta la media-

rizar a los estudiantes del septimo grado con las costumbres y cultural de
16 paises o ubicaciones latinoamericanos, tales como Panama y las Islas
de San Bias. Con la guia de su maestra Toni Williams SAnchez, los estu-
diantes interpretaron musica y bailes tipicos y diseilaron y construyeron
quioscos, donde sirvieron plates tipicos preparados por ellos y
distribuyeron recordatorios de los paises representados.
