Week Program

Is Announced Will Be Implemented

"Engineering-a better tomor-
row through technology," will be
the theme for this annual observ-
ance of Engineers' week to be held
February 20 to 26.
Sponsored by the Canal Zone
Society of Professional Engineers,
this year's program stresses the engi-
neering profession need to focus
positive attention in the merits of
applied technology to meet the ur-
gent problems of the day and create
a better tomorrow.
In a proclamation signed recently,
Canal Zone Gov. David S. Parker
designated the week as National
Engineers' Week in the Canal Zone.
The same proclamation sets aside
February 26 as Engineers' and
Architects' Day.
Participating in the observation
of this year's events also are the
Panama Section of the American
Society of Civil Engineers, the
Canal Zone Post of the Society of
American Military Engineers, and
the Canal Zone Architects.
A number of special events have
been scheduled for Engineers' Week

Engineering students from Bal-
boa High School and from Cristobal
High School will compete in the
popular Science TV Quiz program

A new type of photo identifica-
tion card has been devised to replace
the Identification-Purchase Card
currently being used by Canal orga-
nization employees.
The streamlined identification pur-
chase authority cards will replace
the current Form 3002 issued an-
nually to U.S. citizens, Form 3003
issued monthly to non-U.S.-citizen
residents of the Canal Zone, and the
"Job Site" portion of Form 3004
issued annually to non-U.S. citizens
residing in the Republic of Panama.
The medical portion of Form 3004,
now issued annually to dependents
of non-U.S.-citizen employees res-
iding in the Republic of Panama,
will be continued. The new card
also will replace the photo badges
now issued to employees working
in specific vital installations.
The new cards will be color-
coded to designate whether the
holder is eligible to purchase in the
Panama Canal organization retail
stores or is limited to "job site" and
medical authorization only. Color
coding also will be used to identify
the vital installation (Locks, Ter-

Higher Production

Costs Nudge Milk

Prices Upward
Due to higher production costs,
retail prices for reconstituted milk
will increase from 210 to 240 a
quart and from 400 to 450 a half
gallon container, effective March 1.
Prices for other reconstituted
milks, buttermilk, chocolate, straw-
berry, skim, and eggnog will be in-
creased proportionately. The stu-
dent price for half pint reconstituted
milk will remain unchanged at 50.
One of the major causes for this
price increase is the fact that pur-
chase costs for raw materials have
steadily increased and they are now
double the level they were only 1
year ago.
The last price increase for recon-
stituted white milk was in January

Hope) in which the employee regu-
larly works. Employees' dependents,

eligible to purchase in Canal retail
stores, will be issued cards.
Applications for the photo iden-
tificacion card-purchase authority

day, February 17, to all permanent
employees of the Canal organiza-
tion. After these forms are filled out
by the employees, they will be
reviewed by the head of the divi-
sion or his representative who will
certify the employment status and
roll and gang number of the em-
ployee and the vital installation

Young Heart Victim

Gets Needed Help

By Ann West, Women's Editor
Southern Command News
Rina Raquel Ruiz is a lovely,
10-year-old brown-eyed little girl
from Colon with a happy smile, a
lilt in her voice, and an infinite
capacity for enjoying life and look-
ing forward to a bright future.
A few months ago this future was
neither bright nor assured. Rina was
suffering from cardio-vascular differ-
ence and rheumatic fever, and to
stay alive needed an operation which
could be performed only in the
United States.
The problems of getting medical
aid for Rina seemed insurmountable.
Not only would there be the sur-
geon's fee, but money was needed
for medicine, hospitalization, and
transportation to and from the
Determined To Help
John H. Harris of Margarita,
a Terminals Division employee,

heard of Rina's illness and became
interested in her case. He was deter-
mined to do anything possible for
the girl, but he needed help.
Through many letters and tele-
phone calls to various medical cen-
ters in the United States, Harris
finally located Dr. Denton A. Cooley
of the Houston Medical Center who
offered to perform the operation free
of charge. This generosity on the
part of Dr. Cooley brought the
reality of an operation much closer.
Remaining would be the expenses
of getting Rina there, and her care
during the operation.
Appeals Is Made
Harris made an appeal on behalf
of Rina to various organizations and
private individuals both in the Canal
Zone and the Republic of Panama.
The response was overwhelming.
Within 1 month, enough money had
been donated to send the child to
Houston and assure her being able

lantic side will begin at 3:30 p.m.
starting on Bolivar Avenue at the
Hotel Washington. The parade will
continue along all Bolivar Avenue
and then onto Central Avenue end-
ing at Second Street, giving all em-
ployees on the Atlantic side an
opportunity to see the spectacle.

Dick Bjorneby Serving

5th Term on Council

Richard J. Bjorneby, first vice
president of the Coco Solo-France
Field Civic Council, is a man of ver-
satile talents who finds nothing more
fascinating than people. And appar-
ently the attraction is mutual as his
record in the Civic Council shows.
Bjorneby has been president two
terms and vice president three terms.
Bjorneby came to the Canal 10
years ago from Bremerton, Wash.,
where he graduated from Olympic
College. He also attended the Uni-
versity of Washington at Seattle.
Prior to becoming an admeasurer,
he was a rigger and a diver, two
jobs that he considers among the
most interesting in the organization.
Bjorneby and his family, com-
posed of the former Patricia Leach,
a local girl born at the old Colon
Hospital, and their five children are
a close knit unit that enjoys doing
things together, especially traveling.
In 1966, they motored to the United
States by car, staying at motels and
hotels along the way. Two years
later they made the trip in a pick-up
truck with a camper and camped
along the way. They have traveled
extensively in the United States and
Canada. Mrs. Bjorneby's father,
John Leach, retired from Canal serv-
ice in 1962 with 42 years of service.
Mrs. Leach was a speech therapist
for the School Division for 7 years.
She is presently a recreation assist-
ant at Fort Davis.
As an admeasurer Bjorneby has
boarded more than 8,000 ships so
it is most fitting that he is a collector
of pictures of ships. He has more
than 2,000, all signed by their cap-
tains. Among his collection are pic-
tures of old passenger ships no
longer sailing the seas, such as the
Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth and
the United States. Bjorneby also
collects coins and stamps and has a
moderate collection of old bottles.
But as a collector, his real forte is
his collection of beer cans and

Rina Raquel Ruiz de 10 afios de
edad, es una graciosa nifiita de ojos
chocolates con una sonrisa feliz, que
canta alegremente y tiene una capa-
cidad infinita para gozar de la vida
y en espera de un future brillante.
Hace pocos meses este future no
era ni brillante ni seguro. Rina, que
reside en la ciudad de Col6n, estaba
sufriendo de una diferencia cardio-
vascular y fiebre reumitica, y para
seguir viviendo necesitaba una ope-
raci6n que s61o podia hacerse en los
Estados Unidos.
Los problems para conseguir
ayuda m6dica para Rina parecian
insuperables. Alli habria no s61o los
honorarios del cirujano, sino que se
necesitaba dinero para medicines,
hospitalizaci6n y transport hacia y
dcsde los Estados Unidos.
John H. Harris, de Margarita,
Zona del Canal, Ayudante del Co-
mandante de Seguridad de la Divi-
si6n de Terminales, Ramo de Segu-
ridad, en Crist6bal, supo de la en-
fermedad de Rina y se interest en
su caso. Estaba determinado para
hacer todo lo possible por la nifia,
pero necesitaba ayuda.
Por medio de muchas cartas y Ila-
madas telef6nicas a various centros
en los Estados Unidos, Harris loca-
liz6 finalmente al Dr. Denton A.
Cooley del Centro Medico de Hous-
ton, quien se ofreci6 a llevar a cabo
la operaci6n gratuitamente. Esta ge-
ncrosidad de parte del Dr. Cooley
hizo que la operaci6n se acercara
mAs a la realidad. Lo que faltaban
eran los gastos para llevar a Rina

Harris hizo un Ilamado a nombre
de Rina a varias organizaciones y
personas en particular tanto en la
Rep6blica de Panama como en la
Zona del Canal. La respuesta fue

abrumadora. En el t6rmino de 1
mes, se habia recibido dinero sufi-
ciente para enviar a la nifia a Hous-
ton y asegurarse que pudiera espe-
rar un future brillante. Rina estaba
en camino.
La operaci6n tuvo un 6xito com-
pleto y Rina regres6 a Panama es-
perando vivir la vida feliz y active
de cualquier otra nifia de su edad,
lo que no habia podido hacer a tra-
vys de 4 afios de enfermedad.

Para la Leche

Debido a los mAs altos costs de
producci6n, los precious al por menor
de la leche reconstituida aumen-
tarAn de 210 a 240 el cuarto y de
400 a 450 el envase de medio gal6n,
a partir del 19 de marzo.
Los precious para otras leches re-
constituidas, suero de manteca, cho-
colate, fresa, desnatada y ponche
seran aumentados proporcionalmen-
te. El precio para estudiantes para la
media pinta de leche reconstituida
seguirA sin cambiar a 50.
Una de las principals causes
para este aumento de precious es el
hecho de que los costs de compra
para los materials crudos han
aumentado constantemente y son

La Srta. Ambar del Carmen Moreno
CArdenas es ayudante estudiantil en
el Ramo de Ingenieria Civil de la
Division de Ingenieria. Presta servi-
cios en las oficinas principles de la
division, en el tercer piso del Edifi-
cio de Administraci6n de Balboa
Heights. EstA encantada con el am-
biente que existe en ese departa-
mento y dice que se Ilev6 una muy
agradable sorpresa al ver cuantos
panamefios trabajan alli y el gran
ambiente de compafierismo que rei-
na en todo moment. "De moment,
lo que hago es tratar de ser itil en
todo lo que pueda. Ayudo en la
confecci6n de grAficas, en la pre-
paraci6n de informes sobre los dife-
rentes trabajos que lleva a cabo el
ramo de ingenieria civil, tanto en
las esclusas como en otras Areas del
Canal, y trato de familiarizarme con
todas las facetas del trabajo que eje-
cuta el ramo". La Srta. Moreno CAr-
denas naci6 en la ciudad de Panama,
hija del matrimonio formado por el
Ing. David Moreno, Jefe del Depar-
tamento de Planifcaci6n del Insti-
tuto de Acueductos y Alcantarilla-
dos Nacionales (IDAAN), y de la
Sra. Panchita de Moreno, muy cono-
cida publicista que presta servicios
en la Estrella de Panama. Ambar
estA sumamente orgullosa de sus
padres. Dice que su papA es un hom-
bre de muy buen caricter y suma-
mente meticuloso y responsible en
su trabajo. Algo que le llama la
atenci6n es que, a pesar de ser in-
geniero, tambidn se dedica a escri-
bir pAginas literarias sobre temas
del agro panameiio. De su madre se
expresa en terminos muy elogiosos.
Dice que le admiral ver a su madre
hablar de multiples y diferentes
temas de la vida modern, relacio-
cionarse con personas de todas las
classes sociales y de muy diferentes
profesiones y sobre todo, ver c6mo
describe sobre los diferentes temas
que tiene que tocar en su profesi6n
de periodista. Dice: "La carrera del

un espectAculo lujosisimo con el
que oficialmente se da inicio a

Con la llegada de la Reina al
Palacio Municipal, donde se le
dan las Ilaves de la ciudad y su
visit al Palacio Presidencial, co-
mienza el festival de 4 dias. Son
4 dias de bailes en las calls y
toda clase de diversiones.
Febrero 13-Domingo de Carnaval.
Tradicionalmente se tienen tam-

periodista es sumamente interesante,
lena de magnificas experiencias,
donde se encuentra algo nuevo cada
dia, pero para dedicarse a ella hay
que tener el don de saber expre-
sarse, ya sea oralmente como por
escrito, y por eso es que yo creo
que no la adoptaria como profe-
si6n". La Srta. Moreno CArdenas
hizo sus studios en el acreditado
colegio de las Esclavas del Sagrado
Coraz6n de Jesus situado en el Area
de Punta Paitilla. Actualmente se
prepare para ingresar a su quinto
aiio de Ingenieria Civil en la Uni-
versidad Santa Maria La Antigua.
No tiene planes definitivos sobre sus
studios de postgrado, pero si cree
que tomar un curso de programa-
ci6n de computadoras para encon-
trar sistemas que faciliten la labor
de la ingenieria civil. Dice que si
se le present la oportunidad de

poder estudiar en el extranjero, le
gustaria especializarse en Ingenieria
Hidriulica. Aficionada a las activi-
dades al aire libre, a Ambar le en-
canta la nataci6n, el volibol, el tenis
y paseos al interior de la Repiblica.
"Y tengo bastantes motives", comen-
ta, "pues mi padre es de la Villa de
Los Santos y mi mama de la ciudad
de Chitr6". Tambi6n es aficionada a
la lectura, especialmente sobre psi-
cologia y le encanta la m6sica, sin
que tenga una preferencia en parti-
cular. Dice que el Canal de Pana-
ma, como obra de ingenieria, es algo
incredible y, como ruta para el comer-
cio mundial, quizAs lo mis valioso
que ha hecho el hombre para mejo-
rar su estandar de vida en los ilti-
mos mil aiios. Su mayor deseo es
terminar su carrera y luego poder
former un hogar y seguir practicando
su profesi6n.

Campe6n al Bate de Panama Labora

En Division de Dragado del Canal

No es lo mismo empuiiar un bate
en un juego de beisbol, que empu-
fiar una Have de tuberia para hacer
un ajuste en una maquina perfora-
dora, pero Reginald Grenald, ayu-
dante operario de sonda de granalla
en la Secci6n de Perforaci6n de la
Divisi6n de Dragado en Gamboa,
sabe hacer ambas cosas y muy bien.
Grenald, un bocatorefio nacido
hace 40 aiaos en Almirante, se en-
cuentra laborando con la organiza-
ci6n del Canal de PanamA desde el
12 de agosto de 1971. Su empleo
es solamente por 1 afio, pero su
jefe inmediato Dick Wharry, super-
intendente de la Secci6n de Perfo-
raci6n, espera que Grenald se que-
de trabajando en forma permanent
en la secci6n, ya que es un magni-
fico empleado y se ha ganado la
simpatia de jefes y compafieros de
de trabajo por su dedicaci6n y
Pero lo mAs notable de Grenald
fuera de su trabajo, es que es un
pelotero professional de renombre en
PanamA y acaba de conquistar el
campeonato de bate del iltimo cam-
peonato, jugando con los campeo-
nes Guardia Nacional. Precisamente
fue Grenald el que dispar6 el hit
de oro que impuls6 las 2 carreras
del triunfo, con las cuales Guardia
Nacional venci6 a los Gigantes del
Bari por 6 carreras a 4, en lo que
fue el iltimo juego de la series final
para decidir el campeonato de beis-
bol professional de PanamA 1971-72.
Por su gran actuaci6n fue seleccio-
nado el jugador mAs valioso de la
Y su jefe Wharry dice que
Grenald nunca ha interferido el
trabajo en la Divisi6n de Dragado
con el beisbol, ni el beisbol con el
trabajo. "Es un buen empleado y
me gustaria tenerlo mis tiempo en
mi secci6n", dijo. "Su trabajo es
temporal, pero se merece que lo
designed en forma permanente,
termin6 diciendo.
Grenald es ayudante de maqui-
nista de perforaci6n y ha estado
hacienda trabajos en las Esclusas de
Miraflores, en las dos riberas del
Canal y en todos los lugares en don-
de sea necesario hacer perforaciones.
Dice que si tiene suerte le darAn
una extension en su trabajo, que
ahora es temporal por 1 afio. Le
gusta lo que estA haciendo, y le va
muy bien tanto con sus jefes como
con sus compafieros de trabajo.
Ultimamente ha estado viajando
para jugar beisbol professional ya sea
en M6xico o CanadA, pero mani-
fiesta que este afio se quedara en
PanamA pues seguirA laborando con
la Division de Dragado.
Grenald labor anteriormente con
la antigua "Mechanical Division"
en Crist6bal de 1948 a 1950, coma
ayudante mecAnico.
Comenz6 a jugar al beisbol afi-
cionado en Col6n, en donde estuvo
residiendo desde pequefio y repre-
sent6 a esa provincia en el Campeo-
nato Nacional de Beisbol que se
celebr6 en Las Tablas en 1950. Al
afio siguiente fue al Campeonato
National celebrado en Chitr6, pero
en esa ocasi6n vistiendo el uniform
de Bocas del Toro, por ser native
de alli.
En este filtimo torneo national
qued6 como segundo entire los mejo-
res bateadores, ya que el uiltimo dia
de la competencia no pudo conectar
de incogible y se lo gan6 Pedro
"Pepe" Osorio del equipo de
Pero su actuaci6n le vali6 el in-
greso en la selecci6n national que
fu6 a la Serie Mundial de Beisbol
Amateur que se celebr6 en 1951
en Mexico, en donde result cam-
pe6n de bate con un promedio
superior a los .500.
Un buscador de talent de la
organizaci6n de los Piratas de Pitts-
burgh, Ilamado Howie Haak, lo via
actuando en MAxico y lo firm6 para

que jugara con un club suoursal de
los Piratas. Fue asignado al equipo
Mexicali, de clase C con el cual jug6
en la temporada de 1952, despu6s
de haber recihido su bautismo como
professional en PanamA con el equi-
po Spur Cola en la temporada de

No saldri mAs al exterior a jugar,
porque quiere seguir trabajando con
la organizaci6n del Canal.

Despu6s de eso jug6 en Visalia,
Hutchinson, Williamsport, Lincoln,
Columbus, Binghamton en los Esta-
dos Unidos, Tigres de M6xico, Villa
Hermosa, Puerto Mexico y Sabina,
en M6xico, y con los Cardenales de
Granville en la Liga de Canada. Su
Altima salida la hizo el aio pasado
para jugar con el Sabina en la Liga
Mexicana triple A.
Grenald es uno de cuatro pelo-
teros activos que tienen 20 o mAs
aios de servicio con la Liga Profe-
sional de Beisbol de Panama. Los
otros son Ferando Alberto "Mama-
vila" Osorio con 24, George "Bob-
by" Prescott 21 y Stanley Arthurs 20.
Ha jugado con las novenas Spur
Cola, Cerveza Balboa, Chiriqui-
Bocas, Marlboro, Santa Clara, Pana-
lit, Rambler v Guardia Nacional.
Estuvo con seis ganadores de cam-
peonato y con 8 sotaneros.
Este afio gan6 su primer campeo-
nato de bate en el beisbol profesio-
nal panamefio con .417 al conectar
25 incogibles en 60 turnos, con 8
doubles y un cuadrangular, ademis
de impulsar 13 carreras.
En las 20 temporadas que ha ju-
gado en PanamA, Grenald tiene

promedio de .254 con 475 incogi-
bles en 1.875 turnos en 563 juegos.
De esos incogibles 317 fueron de
una base, 90 doubles, 25 triples, que
es la mayor cantidad registrada por
jugador alguno en la historic de la
liga, 43 cuadrangulares y 260 carre-
ras empujadas.
Se ha desempefiado en la initial,
segunda base, tercera base y en los
jardines en 19 temporadas, mientras
que en la reci6n pasada campafia
jug6 solamente en la primera base.
Su promedio en la defense fue de
.960 en los 19 afios anteriores, y de
.982 en la 6ltima temporada que
jug6 inicamente como inicialista.
Grenald es tambien el lider de por
vida en la liga professional con 280
ponches recibidos. Este afio, sin em-
bargo, lo poncharon s61o cinco veces.
En la iltima temporada encabez6
la liga en doubles con 8, en batazos
de extrabase con 9, en total de bases
con 36 y en promedio de bate con
.417. Solamente se qued6 sin conec-
tar de hit el 9 de enero de 1972,
frente al lanzador Rend Paredes, del
Malboro, bateando libremente en

Los mencionados doctors infor-

Recomiendan no usar la sal y, en
su lugar, utilizar sirope de ipeca-

que se ha convertido en algo muy
com6n pues al usarlo no se produ-

De acuerdo con dichos m6dicos,

En Escobal ha

Surgido Brote

De Malaria
Un brote de malaria ha ocurrido
en el pueblo de Escobal en las ribe-
ras del Lago Gat6n. Funcionarios
del Ministerio de Salud de Panama
han torado medidas de urgencia

pican por lo general del anochecer
a la madrugada. Se aconseja a las
personas que frecuentan las Areas
remotas del Lago Gat6n o el Rio
Chagres, usar repelentes de insec-
tos, ropa protectora y dormir bajo
mosquiteros durante la noche.
Las medidas para la erradicaci6n
de la malaria en la Zona del Canal
continalan diariamente a cargo de la
Division de Sanidad y de unidades
militares en aproximadamente 100
millas cuadradas de Areas saneadas
que rodean las comunidades de la
Zona e instalaciones del Canal.
Limpieza de zanjas y uso de lar-
vaticidas se efect6an para controlar
los criaderos de mosquitos. La Di-
visi6n de Sanidad tambien aplica
insecticides residuales en el interior
de las casas donde hay criaderos de
mosquitos y examine a los residen-
tes debido a la malaria. Si se en-
cuentran casos, se les atiende en los
hospitals de la Zona.
