The Panama Railroad remained Top-

hearing on Panama Canal affairs.
Gov. John S. Seybold continued his testimony, and
his defense of the policy of closing the railroad.
Committee chairman Edward A. Garmatz (D-Md.) in-
dicated Seybold would be questioned further on the rail-
road in Washington later, as would Armed Forces wit-
nesses.
The hearings, scheduled to. end yesterday, were
stretched into today to hear further testimony from Sey-
bold. The local hearing ended at.12:50 p.m.
During a two-hour quizzing on the railroad today,
Seybold revealed that' not one member of his staff hod

dealt mainly with the proposed
building of a new trans-Isth-

ment of the Panama railroad.
Summing up the proposals
Rigby said:
'There is an alternative to
building a new highway and that
is to utilize the present B o y d-
Rooievelt Highway. There are
several factors which moat be
given careful consideration before
such a plan should be adopted.

The Governor was questioned
at length concerning the pro-
posal to build a new highway on
the Isthmus. He said that al-
though "dollar-wise" it might
not be advisable to build it,
there were many intangibles in-
volved which would far-out-
weigh monetary considerations.
He pointed out that the "defense
angle" could not be evaluated,
and that was one of the intan-
gibles.
Rep. William S- Milliard (R-
CsJ> then asked the Governor:-
"Your recommendation to a-
bandon the Railroad was pretty
much on a dollar-cents basis,
and I think the recommendation
to build a highwav should be
figured on a comparable basis.
The Governor replied that
"dollar-wise" H wss better to

Highway. '

tien asked: "Then don't we
come back to the fact that s-
sMe from the Intsng'bles the
principal reason for construct-
ing s new highway is for de-
fense?*'
Garmatz asked the Governor
whether the Canal was not

by the railroad, by using com-
missary trucks.

Tumulty pointed out that the
committee was not concerned

"We cannot just consider pure-

The question of the Canal's
right to use the Panama high-
way was then discussed and
clarified for the.benefit of the
congressmen.
Earlier, Francis E. Dora (R-
H.Y.) asked the Governor wheth-

road could be pushed, "sold as

baked goods across the isthmus
for the convenience of the con-
sumers. "There's no question

with the congressmen.
"I think we should offer oar
services to the Armed Forces.
They know what we are, they
know the rates, they are able
to judge for themselves the
brat way of handling their
transportation."
Pursuing the question of the
Armed Forces as customers, Dorn
asked:
"Let us suppose the committee
decides the railroad should be
kept. Could you then go to the
Armed Forces, the steamship
people and other commercial
ventures and attempt to sell the
railroad to them, have them use
it rather than trucks, and in
competition with the other
trucking concern?"
"I don't know about the lat-
ter," the Oovernor replied. "I
feel it is our mission to assist
the policy of the government of
the United States.
"Her know If we enter very
active competition we wlH re-
ceive considerable criticism."
Dorn asked whether "active
competition" would mean proper
rates, which in turn must be
charged to the services, to
steamship owners as well as to
merchants in Panama.
Don't you agree," Dorn ask-
ed, "that would assist in getting
back normal business for the
railroad?"
Gov. John S. Seybold reacted briskly yesterday to railroaders' allegations that th
Panama Railroad's misfortunes were due to mismanagement, and even a conspiracy
to close the line.
The allegations were made in the mor ing session, by railroad unions' witness
Robert C. Daniel. Seybold, first afternoon witness, got to dealing with them before get-
ting on with reading his prepared statement.
This statement is carried on the back page.
"There is an indication of belief that the Panama Canal Company has deliber-
ately adopted a shameful, evil, vicious, diabo lical program to abandon the railroad and
force the conversion through on a basis of stubborn pride or mistaken zeal, he said.
"Nothing could be more in error. The Company, sines 1082, has taken seriously
ig and direction-of Congress to carry on its stewardship in most
mi arid economical manner."
"I request your committee use! Tumulty st this point assured
all of its powers to bring before Seybold: "I have not made_up my
us any evidence of malfeasance"
the Governor said, snd added
that he wanted to assure the com-
mittee there was nothing, in his
knowledge, in any way, which con-
noted bad faith or anything else,
concerning the railroad question.
Testifying that he "wants this
clesred up," Seybold told the com-
mittee that if there were any
questions this committee may
have, any questions which have
gone before, and if my informa-
tion is wrong, I would like the rec-
ord to thus show," Seybold said.
Chairman Garmatz said that
the Governor's request left him
no alternative but to ssk each
member if there were any par-
ticular questions.
"It is my usderstssding," Sey-
bold said, "that the sctlea of
management in Ita move to a-
bandon the railroad was ques-
tioned and there were laslnua-
thms that management did It in
a matter of fraud, or for some
other purpose."
Gsrmatz told the Governor that
they will handle this in the same
manner aa they did other witnes-
ses. "The meetings hsve been o-
pen, snd I think we've been fair
in running them." ._. v
Rep. T7 James Tumulty (D-N.
J ) led off the questioning with:
"As I understand it, earlier tes-
timony wss, ss I heard it. that
there was, or seemed to be e sys-
tematic, deliberate effort to run
the railroad in such a fashion u
to justify the new highwsy.

"There seemed to be a plan that rod the recordi you *_ have the
^t railroad was run to sucn a \___ nini
fashion that it would not make a
profit.
mind as to anything yet, Govern
lar.'*
Seybold said he Just wasted
to clarify, "eace aad for all"
thatt hen was no fraud or mal-
feasance on the part of manage-
ment. He said the implication
that the Psasms Canal Co. had
deliberately adopted a shameful,
vicious program to abandon the
railroad was wrong.
"Nothing could be more in er-
ror," the Governor added.
He said that the Company-Gov-
ernment found they could save
money by abandoning the raU-
road. However, if Congress "de-
sires us to continue," we will, and
we will do a good job. I'm proud
of the job we are doing, but it's
not economical," he stated.
Rep. John F. Allen. Jr. (R-Cal.)
interjected at this point to say he
the "highest integrity and high
ability'' and that be placed com-
plete reliance on any statement of
tact the Governor made.
Allen said it was unfortunate
that several times during the
hearings statements concerning
"criminal negligence" were ban-
died about rather loosely.
"This puts everyone under sus-
picion," he said. "I personally re-
gret any indication that the Gov-
ernor's integrity wss being ques-
tioned."
Dorn told the committee then
that he believes all of this arose
because of a statement he made
during the earlier session.
"That statement was warrant-

Net Canal Income
For Fiscal 19S5: f
$511,134
Testimony by oov. Seybold
before the House Subcommittee)
included a "few facts" about
Canal Co. operations for fiscal
year 1065.
Seybold said:
The company closed out th
year with a net Income of $681,-
134. A small deficit had been
budgeted, but the continued
high level of traffic by com-
mercial vessels snd added econ-
omies accounted for the fsvor-
able result. Tolls from commer-
cial vessels were the highest oa
record. *
"However, the transit of .S.
government vessels dropped
sharply to %\,2Vt3M, which was
S2-V million less than in 1954.
This decrease, together with in-
creases In operating expenses as
a result of new fringe bneflts
granted to employes by law. sfl-
counted for most of the drop of
about 036 million in net Income i
as compared to 1954.
"During this same period,
when Canal traffic hss reached
an all time record high, our to-
tal employe force has decree sad
from about 19.300 on July 1.
1961 to about 14.17 currently, a
decrease of ove ft%.
"Our experience during the
first four months of the oanssai
flscs- year indicates a cont
high level of commercial traffic
We estimate that the Company
win again show a small net in-
come this year. The new treaty
has of course not yet influenced
our fiscal status, as It will to
the near future."

Tne blueprint would permit
Reuther to cross all industrial,
political and geographic lines. He
could move into any industry, in
sny part of the country. He could
csmpaign politically, he could set
up lobbies in Washington and the
state espitis. He could crest*
eublic relations divisions and
roadcast radio and television
propaganda. He could issue news-
papers and magazines. He could
noid conventions.
Reuther s "new CIO" would, in
effect, sidestep the new national
AFL-CIO headquarters. And It
would be heavily financed.
In the closing minutes of the
CIO convention last Friday,
Reuther announced that be alreaay
had 84.000,000 committed to his
"organizational crusades." This
saoney, he disclosed, will come
from the old CIO unions.
This document, which Reuther

minimum of $1,000,000 a year
from Juat the old CIO unions

money was contributed beyond
them dues paymenU.
The Department would take In
whatever old AFL unions decided
to join. But the department chiefs
were to be Walter Reuther and
James Carey, the old CIO offi
cars.
The department's leaders would
have the right to bring up mem-
ber unions on charges and expel
them from the industrial division.
Finnaly, the department leaden
would not actually have to clear
witn the national AFL-CIO head
quarters. They could set up reg
lonal offices even in those areas
where the AFL-CIO. had perm-
anent headquartera of iu own. It
could launch industrial union
drives anywhere which means
it could go after all workera in
a single Plant or industry, from
stenographers to Janitors, from
skilled machlnisU to errand boys.
When Meany presented the plan,
an uproar shook the Hotel sutler
conference room. Many of the old
AFL leaders charged the Reuther
proposal would establish s second
government inside the new outfit.
To quiet the revolt and move on
to the business of merging the AFL
and CIO, Meany appointed a three-
man committee to meet with
Reuther. On it are the Teamsters'
Dave Beck, the Bricklayers' Harry
Bates and the Railway Clerks'
George Harrisen.
There is doubt now that tne
Reuther action plan can be aide-
tracked. Thla means that Reuther
will have the right to set up his
network if he can get the
money.

Little TV Squashed
While Democratic leaders have
been castigating the Eisenhower
administration about playing up to
big business, the Dems in turn
have token a runout powder on
protecting one of the most impor-
tant small business groups In the
nation smaller TV stations.
This nation was built on the
principle that any country editor
could set up a printing presa in
any town of his choosing snd pub-
lish a newspaper at his own risk.
Today, the an principle does
not apply to one of the great mod-
ern mediums of communication-
television.
And a few davs ago the big-
busmem-minded Federal Commu-
nications Commission alapped
down the country-editor type TV
stations. The little UHF stations
had had a chance to compete
wlh the gianU of the industry
until two weeks sgo when the
FCC slapped them down with the
"deintermixture" decision per-
mitting potent VHF sUtions to be
opened In areas hiherto re-
served for small UHF stations,
thereby putting them out of busi-
ness.

stations, and will limit future
telecasting to a relatively few big
sutione.
Freedom To Adventos
Effect of the decision was Ml
unlike having the government tell
the little suburban newspapers that
flourish on Long Island to move
over because the powerful New
York Timea and Herald Tribune
would be given special concessions
in that area.
FCC's decision not only affected
freedom of communicationsmod-
ern version for freedom of press-
but freedom of business to adver-
tise. For TV stations owned by
the major networks brought in

last year. This meana that expen-
sive TV advertising has so pre-
empted the major stations thai

And the ability to advertise to

cision acrossofficiallyw ere

lawyer for the bell Telephone in-
terests in Ohio; Commissioner
John Doerfer, friend of Senator
McCarthy' to Wisconsin; Com-
missioner R.L. Lee, another pal of

There also, Block said, "ought

It was on the grounds of state
policy that the board Monday put

er by ordering that Georgia and

"The old saving Is you never

"My high school class is really
getting to know Spanish."
Another sspect Craig finds pleas-
ing is the earnestness with which
his instruction squad works to put
its lessons across. No written
Spanish has been shown the young-
er ones, as phonetic presentation
is much more effective on a pri-
mary level. This involves the draw-

purposes ef the Canal enterprise,
I believe that the ellees tiene
should be en e user basis under
seme apprepriate farmula.
He felt 'inappropriate and ob-
jectionable" a section of proposed
legislation under which the Re-
Criic of Panama would be hilled
the cost of providing schools
in the Canal Zone for citizens of
Panama.
It can be confidently antic-
ipated that the Republic ef Pa-
name would refuse responsibility
or such casts, and they would
he right, in my opinion.
"The adverse effects of any ac-
tion based on the theory that such
school costs should be borne by
Psnsma would be far greater, to
my opinion, than any fiscal gain
to the Company-Government.
"The attendance te Canal Zone
schools of Panamanian students
on the limited basis that prevails
has been of outstanding benefit to
Canal Zone Republic of Panama
good relations for many years.
Regarding the proposal that on-
ly those portions of general cor-
rate espeases directly allocated
the actual transit aeration be
covered by tolls. Seybold said:
"The supporting activities to'
volved are characterized by the
bin itself as being necessary to
sccomplish the major objective
of the Panama Canal Company.
If they are necessary, then they
must be operated whether or not
they are self-supporting.
"If leases result because ef an
arbitrary atiessment ef certain
general expenses ever and a-
heve direct costs, then, still
hearinfl in mind that the activl-
ty is necessary te the Cenal e-
peratien and therefore cannot
be discentmued, here is cer-
tainly reason te ejuostlen the
merits of a proposal that the
feneral taxpayers, rather than
the Cenal users, should pay
such necessary costs,
"It Is understood that those
sponsoring the proposed legisla-
tion now recommend that the bin
be amended so as not to require
tost facilities engaged exclusively
in providing goods and services
for employes be self-supporting.
t
If this section of the bin were
to receive favorable consideration
at all. the Canal administrative
certainly concurs that the employe
service activities should be ex-
captad, in order not to impose sn
impossible burden on the employ-
"Presumably the exception
would be directed at such activi-
ties as the commissaries, the com-
munity service centers, housing.
etc. These activities should be
described as these predominately
engaged in providing goods aad
services for employes, and not as
being so engaged exclusively.
"The commissaries and other
activities do not serve employes
exclusively since there are other
customers in the Canal Zone who
have purchase privileges but who
are not Government employes.
"It is clear, however, that
the prapesed exclusion ef em-
playe service activities would
Phong! the extra burden the
bill would shift from tells te the
feneral taxpsyers.

to the burning building to make
sure no persons were trapped.
No one was injured and the
fire was under control in just

The admiralty spokesman said
the fire was "confined to an old
section of the admiralty which has
being dismantled and was to be
re-built. The fire just hastens the
process of dismantling a bit.''
He said the building was lSth

Big Bob Baker, 213V lbs., of

Final Iryoub
For Teenage Loop
Saturday Morning
The finl tryouU for boys _
from 13 through 15 years of age youngster.
will be held at the Fastllch
League park adjacent to the
Pacific Little League park on
Oalllard Highway commencing
at 9:00 a.m. next Saturday.
Last Saturday 94 boys came
out for the tryoutg. The Manag-
ing Personnel of the league be-
lieve there may be others who
want to try for a berth on one
of the teams, but who were not
able for one reason or another
to attend last week's tryouts.
For this reason these boys will
have a second opportunity Sat-
urday. Thia, however, will be the
final chance for this year.
Application forms will be a-
vailabl* at the league park for
those boys who do not already
ha th form.
It is not .often in boxing that a
substituting fighter meets the ap-
proval of fans before the bout is
held, but according to talk in
boxing circles today, such seems
to be the case in the Isidro Mar-
tinez-Pedro Tesis clash to be held
at the Colon Arena Sunday night.
Federico Plummer, who .was
originally aigaed to meet Mart-
nex, fractured a finger during a
workout last week and ia una-
ble to fulfill hat engagement.
Promoter Nicanor Desman,
who is sponsoring Sunday s pro-
gram, contracted Tesis in Plum-
mer's stead and the consensus
of opinion is that Tesis is a
better matched opponent than
Plummer.
Both principals, live in Colon
and they have been taking great
care that one does not work out
at the Arena in the other's pres-
ence. Pedro goes through his pac-
es in the very early afternoon
while Isidro' gym work, begins
at 4-
The Martinez supporters still
insist that Isidro defeated Pedro
the last time they met early this
year, in Tesis' first defense of
the featherweight title he then
held. Tesis wss swarded a high-
ly disputed split decision.
Both hoys are now full-fledged
135-pounders. Tesis' feather crown
was declared vacant by the Pa-
nama Boxing Commission recent-
ly, because he failed to defend It
within the stipulated aix month
period. The Colon Commission
does not recognize the Panama
ruling.

For some years now, racing people hare been talking about
the million-dollar horse, Just as major league baseball ofliciais
hare been awaiting the $600,000 player.
That the diamond ever will achieve that figure in the sale
of a reincarnation of Babe Ruth, Walter Johnson or Christy
Mathewson now appears quite doubtful.
That the turf will see the realization of its dream of a $1
million thoroughbred is fairly certain. That sum, and perhaps
even considerably more, will be realized when and if the late
William Woodward Jr's. Nashua, 3-year-ola champion o 1955,
goes on the clock. .
There bare been greater racers than Nashua, beaten by
Swaps In the Kentucky Derby, has shown himself to be. But
the colt, with a two-year record oi Id firsts In 20 starts and total
winnings of $945,415, embodlts the most intriguing possibilities
In American thoroughbred circles.
For the buyer with lush funds and high-racing amibtions,
there would be the possibility of Nashua's going on o spectacuar
achievements in the handicap division.
For the horse breeder, the proposition of retiring the colt
and speculating on hit get, as well as tremendous fees for his
services in stud, would be tremendously attractive. Nashua cer-
tainly would command the equal of the $10,994 fee which is
charged- for the services of Royal Charger.
John Ludewig and officials of the Central Hanorer Bank
and Trust Co. of New York, executors and trustees of the Wood-
ward estate. Insist that no decision yet has been made about the
disposition of the Belalr Stud and its big farm at Bowie, Md.
However, ocae students of the situation believe early sale
of these propertits to be Inevitable. When the Woodward boys,
William 3rd now 11, and James, only 7, become of age they may
lack interest In the turf.
Those who are familiar with tax gimmicks point out that
whereas other parts of the Woodward estate, reported to be worth
$10 million in al-, are subject to the usual heavy inheritance im-
posts, the sale o the stable would offer the financial attractions
of capital gains. a
$700,000 TOPS THUS FAR
If Nashua M offered for public bidding. In his high status
as a champion-and winner of $831,4 as a 3-year-old. a situa-
tion without precedent on the American turf, tracing to the
Woodward shooting tragedy at Oyster Bay, L. I-, on Oct. $0, wlU
PTbo hlguest price yet paid for a thoroughbred now stands
at soraethlnr close to $700.000. That sum waa reported paw
for Nasrullari by a syndicate headed by Bull Hancock some years
back, and recently for Tulyar, Imported from Ireland by a group
of which Wvodward was a member. __
The Irian National 8tud paid $700,000 to the Aga Khan for
Tulyv and kept him for two years.
Before the Nasrullah and Tulyar deals the record sum paid
for a bone was $$00,000, realized by Louis B. Mayer In 1948 when

ALTHOUGH I use s five step
delivery, I don't recommend ft
for everybody.
The four-step delivery is the
one used by most bowlers and
taught in standard instruction. It
is die one for any beginner.
The four-step delivery allows
body momentum to help power
the ball.
It is most conducive to the de-
velopment of proper timing and
coordination for the majority.
The first step is with the right
foot.
The ball Is pushed straight
away from the body and allowed
to atari falling to the aide. The
first step should not he a long one
since its primary Job is to get
your body in motion toward the
foul line.
The second step with the left
foot is slightly longer. The ball
passes the knees and begins to
swing to the rear.
The ball reaches the height of
the backswlng on the third step
with the right foot. The left hand
is extended forward for balance.
The ball should not rise above
shoulder level on the backswlng.
The fourth step, on the left foot,
brings you up to the foul line in s
graceful glide. It Is the longest
step In the delivery. As you
slide to the foul Une and release
the ball, follow through with
your arm.
The three-step delivery stsrts

like now to outline again the fac-
tual data and our conclusions
concerning the Panama Railroad
and concerning the use of high-
way transportation. The figures I
shall present reflect current in-
formation and estimates, which in
some cases differ from those

Cov John S. Seybold yesterday afternoon completed reading hit pre pared statement on the Panama Railroad.
sT Thia statement, drawn up earlier did not include specific rebuttal of the controversial contentions advanced during the morning session by
railroad union spokesman Robert C. Daniel. j ; ^ ^ '
Seybold's reaction to Daniel's assertions came in question and anew er exchanges with the congressmen. These exchanges are reported on
Page 1.
Seybold, who identified himself
U a retired major general, plung-
ed straight into the question ol a-
handoning the railroad.
* "The proposal of the Panama
Canal Company that the railroad
be discontinued and that we use
motor vehicles on the highways
for our transisthmian transporta
tion needs, is of concern to tni
Congress in general and especial-
h to this committee, he saia.
XI wih to assure the commit-
tee that this step was not pro-
posed without full study and care-
ful consideration by the board of
directors and mangement of tne
before presenting further de-
t*ili>d data on the subject, i
52,7 to review briefly the itua-
on up to now. ...
In 1954 the House committee
on Appropriations directed that a
tadv be made of the possibility
of converting to highway trans-
portation. This directive was
prompted by a then pending budg-
et Hem for additionalI box car*
which of course would ai o>t be
needed if we were to disconti-
nue the railroad. ^^

board of directors of the Pana-

v. m familiar with toe

he said.
"During fiscal year 1KB the
railroad operated at a loss of
170,208. During the first four
months of the current fiscal year
to date, it is operating at a loss
of about $28,000 a month. Is to
estimated that the railroad will
show a fiscal year loss of aboul
$344,000 in 1856.
"And please bear in mind these
are direct operating losses, with-
out calling upon the railroad to
contribute anything to general o-
verhead or other general corpor-
ate charges.
"It can also be shown that
commercial rates now In effect
re considered the maximum
which can bo chargedcertain-
ly tho maximum which can be
set competitively with Panama-
nian trucking companiesa n d
are believed to bo the* which
produce the maximum return in
this %r f activity.
"An increase in rates would be
passed on to other divisions of
the Company's activity which in
turn would affect general costs to
individuals and others.
"If we could raise the Railroad
by its own bootstraps aa it were,
these same losses must then be
incorporated into our general ac-
counts and through this means
distributed again to other activi-
ties.
"Either way, the overall Com-
pany acitivity suffers from this
une c o n o m i c transportation of
Company supplies and personnel.
"Prior to 1842 the railroad en-
joyed a complete monopoly on the
48-mile haul across the Isthmus,
Seybold continued.
But since the opening of the
trans-isthmian highway in 1942,
the traffic and revenues of the
railroad have declined steadily,
"Tho total operating income
ef tho railroad has d.clinod 78
par cant since tho highway was
COmpletteKI.
"Our freight traffic in 1955 was
only 'about half the volume car-
ried during the prewar years of
IMS to 1938.
"The railroad freight volume
has declined 48 per cent since
1949. The railroad freight tonnage
during the last two fiscal years
was the lowest since the United
States assumed control of the
railroad in 1904.
"In fiscal year 1955 the tonnage
was 16 per cent lower than 1954.
And the freight volume for the
first 4 months of the current fis-
cal year is 37 per' cent lower than
the corresponding period in fiscal
year 1955.
"There Is nothing whatever in
the pictur for Hi More to in-
dicate any -improvement In
this downward trend.
"On the contrary, there is rea-
son to anticipate even greater
competition from the rapidly de-
veloping trucking business in the
Republic of Panama.
TioT' is it considered desirable
to compete for this commercial
trade which affects the Republic's
economy.
"It is desirable to foster this
S" pe of commercial operations for
e Republicthe type of opera-
tions that they generate t h e m-
selves and require no outside as-
sisUnce for development. It is
undesirable to draw assets or
means from this country for ren-
dering their own services that
they can well do themselves," he
said.
"As a result of a further com-
mitment to Panama, the sales of
goods and services in the Canal
Zone to our non-U.S.-citizen em-
ployes who reside in the Republic
of Panama will be discontinued

particularly the Commissaries,
will be greatly curtailed with a
resulting substantial daclino in

that will need to bo carried a-
cress the lithmu *," Seybold
stated.
"There will be very little if a
ny compensating offset of freight
carried by the railroad for the
establishments in Panama that
will supplant the former Canal
Zone supply units.
"It is estimated that during fis-
cal year 1958, after giving full ef
feet to the treaty, the railroad
will transport only 81,000 otns of
freight.
"This compares with 157,000
tons, in 1955, 264,000 tons in 1953,
and 319,000 tops during the pre-
war years. The, sanie picture ex-
ists with reference to passenger
traffic.
Seybold here presented a tabula-
tion of annual railroad traffic
since 1935.
Then he said:
"In addition to the declining
traffic and revenues, the heavy
capital expenditures that will be
reuired to continue the operation
of the railroad as a common car-
rier, because of the poor condi-
tion of the present rolling stock,
to an important consideration in
appraising the problem."
"Much of the rolling stock is
antiuated and extremely costly
to keep in minimum operating
condition.
"Most of the freight rolling
stock is fully depreciated, so that
the total annual depreciation oh
the 406 pieces of freight rolling
stock now in use is only $2,000.
"The average age of the 43
eeces of passenger rolling stock
39 years, with an annual depre-
ciation of about $5000.
"A capital expenditure aggre-
gating about $1,400,000 ever the
next six-year period is estimat-
ed to be necessary if the rail-
road Is to be maintained in o-
perating condition aa a common
carrier.
"This estimate gives effect to
the replacement of passenger
and freight house terminal facili-
ties in the Canal Zone that would
be reuired because of the new
treaty commitment to withdraw
such operations from Panama Ci-
ty and Colon
Here Seybold inserted a break-
down of the aix-year capital ex-
penditure program, which includ-
ed replacements for 6
and two locomotives.
He then turned to discuss the
cost of company-government traf-
fic on the railroad. Another table
he aubmitted showed a steadily
decreasing volume of freight and
passengers was being carried at
an ever increasing cost.
"The fiscal and operating pic-
ture of the railroad that has been
presented we believe dictates
that conversion to highway trans-
portation can be made with re-
sulting increased efficiency and
less cost to the Company, Sey-
bold continued. .
"Motor transportation hi
several advantages which apoly
particularly where, as In the
cae ef fh Panama Railroad,
there is relatively short haul
with a relatively small amount
of freight and passengers.
"The flexibility of door-to-door
delivery by trucking is obvious. It
eliminates the restricted delivery
areas to which a railroad must
adhere due to its fixed roadbed,
and eliminates delays and ex-
pense due to rehandling and
transfer of merchandise.
"The rapid and direct delivery
service offered by trucking re-
quires much less equipment and
expense than a railroad on a
short haul of this type.
"Furthermore, the railroad re-
quired trucks to make deliveries
to areas not served by spur
tracks of the railroad, which nec-
essitate rehandling of merchan-
"The Panama Canal Company
has had considerable experience
in the handling of freight and
passengers by motor vehicles a-
corss the Isthmus.
"In its day-to day operations
the Company has been forced
more and more to the use of mo-
tor vehicles to solve many of'Its
transportation problems. And, of
the railroad at each terminal,"
said the governor.
"Considerable aavings have ac-
crued to the Company through
the centralisation of supply
and the reduction of inventories
in the field. Maximum savings
require tho use of meter vehi-
cles which can rush emergency
supplies as ndd and are not
restricted to a fixed schedule.
"The consolidation of bakery
and cold storage facilities was
feasible only through the use of
motor vehicles.
"Bakery products delivered by
truck are now on commissary
shelves throughout the Canal Zone
within two hours after they are
baked in Mount Hope. Frozen
foods are being transported more
satisfactorily by truck!
"As previously stated it is es-
timated that, after giving full ef-
fect to the new treaty, the offi-
cial Company-Government traffic
now carried by the railroad would
decrease to only 30,000 tons of of-
ficial freight and 107,000 official
passengers.
Seybold moved on to list the
$463,000 worth of motor vehicles
it was estimated the Canal would
need with th shutting down of the
railroad.
These were eight 15-passenger
sedan coaches, five passenger bus-
es, 30 semi-trailers, 10 truck-trail-
ers, and 10 dollies.
The expenditure, he said, had
already been provided for In the
Canal's 1956 budget, but would not
be incurred till the railroad ques-
tion was resolved.
"Turning now to the operating
cost of highway transportation as
contrasted to railroad, we use our
current motor vehicle costs for
trans-isthmian traffic as a guide,"
railroad freight would be, is less
he continued.
"At the present time our cost
of carrying official Company Gov-
ernment friegbt across the Isth-
mus by highway is $2.70 s ton.
This figure is higher than we would
need to use for our comparison
because our current trucking from
which It is derived consiste main-
ly of refrigerated comm i s s s r y
goods.
"General or dry cargo, which is
what almost all of the converted
railroad freight would be, is less
expensive to truck, snd would re-
duce the present sversge of $3.70
a ton.
"However, using the high or
conservative $2.70 a ton rate, the
30,000 tons of railroad freight
would cost $81,000'to h aul by
truck.
__"In addition, the cost of trucking
the terminal freight that is now
carried by the railroad, principal-
ly from piers to warehouses, Is
estimated at $30,000.
"The cost of carrying official
passengers by modern, ssfe vehic-
les of the Company Government
averages $0.82 a passenger. Thus,
the 107,000 passneegrs that would
be carried by motor vehicle in-
stead of railroad-would cost the
Company-Government $87,740.
"The total cost of highway trans-
portation of the freight and pas-
sengers that otherwise would be
carried by the railroad is there-
fore $198.740. As previously sub-
mitted, the railroad cost for the
same amount of freight and pas-
sengers wss $826,000.
The savings by converting
use of the existing Boyd-Roosevelt
fore $627,288 aanaaily.
"These highway transportat 10 n
results I have given sre based on
use of the existing Boyd-Roosevelt
highway. No interest on depreci-
ation cost on the highway invest-
ment is included, of course, be-
cause the highway belongs to the
Republic of Panama and we have
a treaty right to us It.
"The United States does maintain
that highway, however, at an an-
nual cost of about $174,000. This
maintenance might increase 10
per cent to $191,400 because of
increased use after the railroad is
discontinued.
"The maintenance cost of the
Boyd-Roosevelt highway is borne
by the Armed Forces, not the
Canal agencies, but even if half of
it were assessed against the Com-
pany's highway transport a t i o n
costs the annual ssvings over the
railroad would be $531,560.
"And If the entire cost were as-
sessed, which of course it should
not be since the road would also

$435,860.

"1 want to turn now to the dis-
cussion of tne construction and

"However, as you know, the

"Only about 23 mues of highway
are needed to connect exi s 11 a g
roads. The roadbed of the Panama
Railroad across Oatun Lake wouia
be used.
The cost of construction is esti-
mated at $9,000,000. Maintena nee
costs would not be excessive.
'The proposed hignwsy in the
Canal Zone Is not urged because
of obsolescence of the Boyd-Roose-

of economic facors, a It h ugh
these factors bear upon the mat-

"It is urged principally because

traffic or cresto pedestrian haz-
ards.
The new highway would have
easy grades, few curves snd good,
drainage, features which re d u c e
driving time, fuel consumption,
and hazards.
"The advantages of the new
highway In the Canal Zone would
to some degree reduce the operat-
ing costs of vehicles in comparison
with use of the Boyd-Roosevelt
Highway.
"The reduction would be reflect-
ed in the saving of fuel and oil
consumption, and in less wesr snd
tear on the vehicles generally,
including brakes snd tires.
"In addition, the limited-access
feature of the new road would al-
low higher average speeds .with-
out frequent starts and stops and
would be advantageous In terms
of time, efficiency, and safety."
"Direct deliveries could be
made to the various townsltes be-
tween the terminal cities without
sny rehandling or transfer of mer-
chandise.
"Shipments unloaded at s termi-
nal pier could be trucked and del-
ivered to the consuming agency

other location in the Canal Zone

The construct!*. fthe pro-
posed highway would result in.
tare strategic and separately op-
erated arteries across the Isth-
mua, either of which could be
used exclusively for sn emergen-
cy period should the ether faU.
"The engineering aspects of the
Eroposed Canal Zone highway
sve 1>een carefully studied. The
study is technical and detailed and
I propose merely to touch on its
coverage and conclusions.
"The present railroad right-of-
way between Gamboa and the
Gatun-Ft Davis area makes an
Ideal location for a two-lane high-
way, with easy curves and grades.
No other practicable alignment e-
xists across Gatun Lake becaase
of excessive costs. ,
Traffic studies assure us that
a two-lane road will satisfactori-
ly accommodate present traffic
and an requirements in the fore-
seeaUe future. A four-lane high-
way cannot be Justified by traf-
fic requirements and it w o u l d
cost an estimated $24,888,888 in-
stead ef the $8,808,888 estimated
for a two-lane road.
"The present fill has been in
piece for over forty years snd In
general both the fill and the found-
ation have reached a condition of
ultimate consolidation. The live
loading to which the till is and
has been subjected by the rail-
road is greater than the loading
that would be imposed if the fill
were used for highway purposes.
"Recent stories or rumors that
this fill will fail are not factual "
"The estimate of $9,000,000 for
construction of the proposed two-
lane highway includes all related
costs of drainage, relocation of
power transmission towers and
lines, replacement of the telephone
lines by a micro-wave sy s t e m.
guard rails, traffic signals snd
signs, bridge modifications, and so
forth.
"Maintenance on the prop sed
new highway Is expected to be
normal, and to run about $46,000
a year. Depreciation fa estimated
at $153,300 annually. Interest on
the capital investment of the U-
oited States is estimated at $144,-
300 annually."
Seybold submitted a table show-
ing the estimated annual saving
by using the Boyd-Roosevelt high-
waa Instead of the railroad at
$435,860 yearly, any by using s
new Canal Zone highway instead
of the railroad at $303,280.
"Even on a conservative basis,
snd Without taking into account
the economic savings to the Arm-
ed Forces, much less the Canal
Zone civilians, in using the short-
er, better Canal Zone highway, the
tabulation shows thatt he Compa-
ny-Government annual savings by
using the Canal Zone hig h w a y
would be only $132,600 less than
by using the Boyd-Roosevelt high-
way."
"The non-economic advantages
of the highway wholly within the
Zone are clearly worth this small
difference, In my opinion.'*
'Conspiracyr Cry Irks Governor

course, a fleet of vehicles must I be used by the military. Panama-
fact that he didn't ssy the com-
pany was 100 percent in manage-
ment. "No organization Is."
Dora remarked it wSs "ad-
mirable" of the Governor to
say that no ene on his staff had
done snythtag wrong. Seybold
said he didn't mean to imply
this.
Dora replied thst they hsd "no
more information than that which
is put before this committee
Rep. William K. Van Pelt de-
clared he hated to see the com-
mute get into the position it wss
presently progressing into.
"I think, we should limit any
statements of fraud whatsoever."
At this point, Garmatz said the
Governor hsd placed him in a
position of asking each Congress-
man to express his views on the
accusation.
Tumulty objected: "Why should
members of Congress be tried
here? There's no accusation.''
Van Pelt added that "we are
here to ascertain certain facts.
1 don't think they should be mis-
construed as pointing the finger
on anyone. I personally have the
highest regard for the Governor
and his subordinates."
Rep. William S. Mailliard de-
clared that it was not their Inten-
tion to spend a few days here snd
"besmirch snyones reputation."
Tumulty said he hadn't con-
strued anything "as besmirching
the reputation of any man.
Dora added that he felt there
was no question at the moment
that any commltteeman had eith-
er privately or publicly discussed
whether anyone is guilty of any-
thing, but he said:
"I still feel, as the charge
go, that they should be looked
uto by qualified persone.'*
The Governor said he hoped
the committee would bring out all
the 'questions referred to in yes-
terday morning's testimony which
he "hadn't seen or known sbout."
At this point the Governor be-
gan to read from his prepared
testimony.
Re drew nickers from the
audience when, referring to the
fact that deUveriag feed by
truck to commissary shelves
has meant etapteyes get fresh-
er vegetable thsn beefre.
"We are very proud of our In-
crease of the quality of produce
placed on our shelves now. I
mean perishables like lettuce, to-
mstoes, etc."
Be said that "try as we could,
we couldn't get our fresh mer-
be maintained In order to service nian commerce, and the general chandiae out on time" (using the
railroads), but when the food wss
taken off the ship and rushed by
truck to the Pacific side the de-
lay was negligible.
Byrne began his questioning
with:
"You have s duty to perform, I
also do. I csme here to be fair
with everyone. The questions I'm
about to ask you sre to clear up
the atmosphere. I think you should
have your day in court."
Byrne referred to the fact that
in 1952 the U.S. Army put spurs
into the railroad in different sec-
tions of the Canal Zone.
Then, all of a sudden, it came
about thst the rsllrosd would be
discontinued. "Does the Army
still use spurs or Army trucks or
other means of conveyance,"
Byrne asked.
The Governor said he was glsd
this question was out. He replied
that the military distribute every-
thing from there by truck.
After pursuing the question a
little further. Byrne then said he
understood that the sum of $90,
000 wss appropriate for the pur-
pose of making s study as to
whether the railroad should be
abandoned.
"Where is that money?" Byrne
asked.
Col. Hugh Arnold, Engineer-
ing aid Construction Director
answered the question by say-.
aag that between $38,888 and
$48,888 had been used for the
engineering studies.
Byrne: Was this study msde by
a private concern*
Arnold: No, by the Panama Ca-
nal engineers.
Byrne: Where is the rest of the
money of the appropriation?
Arnold: I'm not in a position
to say. (The crowd tittered.)
Philip L. Steers, Jr., Comptrol-
ler, explained then that the un-
expended portion was being held in
reserve to be used in s further
study, if necessary, or to be put
into the construction of the high-
way.
A point brought out by the ques-
tioning waa that the railroad each
year transported s great deal of
money for commercial banks
here, without having an armored
car, or any type of insurance a-
gainst robberies or hold-Ip
Garmatz remarked that although
this might seem tike a small
thing he felt H was worthwhile
looking into the matter of getting
a written agreement from -,the
banks releasing' the railroad from
the responsibility In csae money
was lost.
