A brand new Panma Canal towing locomotive is swung aboard the SS
Pioneer Ming in preparation for its long journey to the Panama Canal from
Japan. The second is shown on a lighter waiting to be loaded. These are
two of the new towing locomotives being manufactured in Japan to replace
the veteran "mules," some of which have been in use on the Panama Canal
locks since the Canal was opened to traffic in 1914.



Three new Panama Canal towing
locomotives arrived at Gatun Locks
in January and three more are due
for delivery during February. Two
of them were unloaded January 12
from the SS Pioneer Ming and a
third arrived aboard the SS Pioneer
Moon January 29 from Japan. All
were in operation on Gatun Locks
5 days after arrival.
These locomotives are the first of
the 53 ordered by the Panama Canal
last May following acceptance of the
first 6 test machines which have
been in operation at Gatun Locks
for the past year and a half.
The other production locomotives
being manufactured by Mitsubishi
Shoji Kaisha, Ltd. will arrive at the
Canal at regular intervals until all
Panama Canal locks are equipped.
Three locomotive cranes, for use on
the centerwall of each of the locks,
also are included in the order.
Some changes in the production
locomotives have been ordered by
Sthe Panama Canal as the result of
mechanical difficulties which devel-
oped during the testing of the
original six test "mules."
During tests, the locomotives have
proved satisfactory from the point
of view of greater power and the
variation of operating speeds. These
important characteristics are result-
ing in speedier and more efficient
handling of the growing Canal
As the new engines arrive, Canal
locks operating crews are being
trained in both maintenance and
operation on an interchange basis,
with groups of Pacific locks per-
sonnel being sent to the Atlantic side
for on-the-job instruction. Later
these men will operate the machines
assigned to the Pacific locks.
Tests also are being made at
Gatun in the use of a walkie-talkie
type of radio communication between
pilots on ships passing through the
locks, the operators of the towing
locomotives and the locksmasters on
the locks walls.
Preserit plans call for the installa-
tion of a permanent radio receiving
set in the new locomotives through
which the towing locomotive oper-

issued portable two-way radio sets
with which they will be able to com-
municate with each other and issue
instructions to the towing locomotive

Car Inspections

Lagging; Deadline

Is February 28

Has your car been inspected and
does it bear a 1964 inspection
sticker? If not, you have just about
20 days to take care of the motor
vehicle inspection requirements.
Owners of private vehicles regis-
tered in the Canal Zone must have
their vehicles inspected, and the auto
inspection sticker affixed, by Friday
evening, February 28. No vehicles
will be inspected on February 29.
Motor vehicle inspection in the
Canal Zone has been lagging a bit
behind last year. The Motor Trans-
portation Division reports that 2,050
motor vehicles have been inspected
so far this year, compared to
approximately 2,600 motor vehicles
inspected in 1963.
The Motor Transportation Divi-
sion garages in Cristobal and Ancon
are open continuously from 8 a.m.
through 5 p.m., including lunch
hour, during the work week, Monday
through Friday, to inspect the many
motor vehicles that must carry the
1964 inspection sticker by 5 p.m.
February 28. After that date motor.
vehicles minus the 1964 inspection
stickers will not be permitted to
operate in the Canal Zone.

Former Lieutenant Governor Add His

Plaudits to Commendation for Police

"The Canal Zone police deserve
the highest praise, and I hope the
people of the United States even-
tually will hear of their perform-
ance," said Brig. Gen. W. P. Leber,
Division Engineer, U.S. Army Engi-
neer Division, Ohio River, former
Canal Zone lieutenant governor, in
a letter received here.
Even before he received the first-
hand reports he now has, General
Leber said he was sure the Canal
Zone police had performed their
duties in an outstanding manner.
"I based my opinion on their un-
usually fine performance under my

direction at the time of the Thatcher
Ferry Bridge dedication on Octo-
ber 12, 1962. I saw enough of them
to know they had the devotion,
training and 'guts' to stand up to
the most difficult situation," he
"I know that in the challenging
days ahead we can count on the
'loyalty, restraint, forebearance and
dedication' of the employees of the
Panama Canal. I am proud to say
that I am a former employee," stated
General Leber, "and if I can be of
any assistance at any time do not
hesitate to call."

acting Navigation Chief since
August, when the former chief, Capt.
Eli Ring, USN, left the Isthmus.
A native of Minneapolis, Minn.,
Captain Briggs joined the U.S. Navy
in 1930 and was promoted to the
grade of warren officer in 1941. He
received his commission in 1942.
During World War II, he served
aboard an LST at the Normandy
landings and later was in the Pacific
theater aboard the aircraft carrier
Yorktown when it was sunk at
He served as an executive officer
aboard the destroyer mine sweeper
USS Endicott off Korea, attended
General Line School in Monterey,
Calif., and the Armed Forces Staff
College at Norfolk, Va.
From 1957 to 1959 he was com-
mander of the Fleet Training Group
at Subic Bay, Philippines, and from
1959 to 1962 was an instructor on the
staff of the Naval War College in
Newport, R.I.
He holds the U.S. Navy Silver
Star, the Bronze Star, the Navy Com-
mendation Medal and the Purple

Zone at the end of the school term
in June. He also has a stepson who
is a lieutenant junior grade in the
U.S. Navy stationed at Pearl Harbor.

PanCanal, Red Cross Cooperate in CARE Food Package Distribution

More than 2,500 food packages
containing approximately 25 pounds
of food each were distributed Friday
on both sides of the Isthmus by
CARE through a cooperative effort
with the Panama Canal.
Similar food packages are to be
distributed Tuesday morning to
nearly 150 other aged men and
women on the Atlantic and Pacific

sides of the Canal Zone by members
of the Canal Zone Chapter of the
American Red Cross.
The distribution is part of the
regular monthly program carried out
by CARE and the Canal Zone Red
Cross. All packages had the usual
supply of cooking oil, corn meal and
flour. Most of them also included 4%
pounds of dried milk despite the fact

that during the disturbances last
week CARE lost 30 tons of food
supplies in the fire which destroyed
the former Cristobal commissary
According to CARE and Red Cross
officials, 99 percent of the men and
women who are on the regular list
for food packages live in the Repu-
blic of Panama and 60 percent are
Panamanian citizens. All on the
CARE list are former employees of
the Canal who are disability relief
recipients. Most of those on the Red
Cross list are widows or aged depen-
dents of former employees who are
not eligible for disability relief
In addition to the monthly CARE
packages distributed by the Red
Cross, other parcels containing such
staples as powdered milk, bread,
dried fish, sugar, tea, soap, oatmeal
and soup are given out each month
to indigent Isthmian residents on

both sides of the Isthmus by the
Canal Zone Red Cross.

Guests? Please

Notify Housing
Anyone residing in Panama Canal
housing who has a guest or guests
as of February 3, residing tempo-
rarily in the Canal Zone, is asked to
notify the Panama Canal Housing
Manager in the district, in writing,
as soon as possible.
The Housing Manager must have
information on names of the persons,
their citizenship, size of families, and
business or Government connections.
Occupants are requested to comply
with this even though they may have
previously given such information.

Hospitals' Blood Banks Again Prove Value;

Community Response Both Willing, Speedy

The Canal Zone blood banks
proved their value-again-at the
time of the recent disturbances. Com-
munity response was noteworthy and
rapid and the latest list of Blood
Bank Honor Roll members published
here does not even include the names
of 40 volunteers who responded to
a rush call on January 10.
Mrs. Dorothy Hadstate of the
Gorgas Hospital blood bank made
three telephone calls on that date
and within a matter of minutes there
were 40 volunteers ready to give
Response to an appeal for blood
also was very good on the Atlantic
side. One donor even arrived at Coco
Solo Hospital to give blood while
a disturbance was in progress near
the hospital.
In the press of activity there was
not time to get the names of the
donors who responded to the Gorgas
appeal on January 10, but their con-
tribution, like all others, was deeply
appreciated by the hospital, the
community-and the recipients.

Bank Honor Roll are in the adjoining

Bids Opened For Fort Davis School

Construction, Powerline Project

E. O. Hauke Construction Co. of
Colon and W. A. Rogers of Balboa
submitted low offers on two major
Canal organization projects on
which bids were opened last week
at Balboa Heights.
The Hauke firm was low with a
bid of $394,000 for construction of
a new nine-classroom air conditioned
elementary school at Fort Davis.
Rogers made a low offer of
$129,242 on a project calling for the
installation of additional powerlines
to Fort Gulick.
Bids on the school project also
were submitted by Alcan Interna-
tional Inc. and Dillon Construction
The Fort Davis school will be
similar to the one built in 1963 at
Diablo as an annex to the present
Junior High School. It will be situ-
ated off Greeley Road in Fort Davis
and will accommodate approximately
450 students.
In addition to nine regular class-
rooms, the masonry one-story build-
ing will house one special education

room, a kindergarten room, a library,
a multipurpose room for school plays
and audio visual education, and
teachers' rooms. A playshed similar
to that built at the Balboa Elemen-
tar), School will adjoin the new
Work on the new school will be
started soon and should be com-
pleted by the time the school term
opens in September 1965.
The work at Fort Gulick consists
of furnishing and installing two
power cables from the Mount Hope
substation to the Fort Gulick sub-
station, and the installation of two
units of switchgear at the Mount
Hope substation. The project should
take 8 months to complete.

This week's commissary bulletin
inadvertently had an incorrect listing
of motion pictures to be shown at
Margarita. The listing as published
on page 2 of this week's SPILLWAY
is correct.

Cristobal Tigers

bow City, the CHS Alumni, and
three times were victorious against
the three other interschool com-
petitors, Balboa High School, Canal
Zone College and the Athletic Club.

act of faith and repentance-and a
commitment to service."
A small group of Christian women
met 78 years ago, offering their

clude not only repatriation travel but
recruitment travel formerly handled by
our Washington office, home leave
travel, educational travel, and the trans-
portation of privately-owned motor
In June of 1959 the Passenger De-
partment of the Panama Line was
consolidated with the Branch.
In the last 2 years new employee
benefits added considerably to the
Branch's workload.
One regulation provides for the grant-
ing of one round-trip at Government
expense to students attending colleges
or universities in the United States.
The other authorizes the shipping of
privately owned motor vehicles to or
from the United States on recruit-
ment, repatriation, and under certain
conditions on return from home leave.
Arrangements are in the process of
being made to add the customs inspec-
tion on the Isthmus of employees'
household goods and personal effects to
their other duties.
The Transportation Branch makes
arrangements for all modes of trans-
portation in addition to sea trans-
portation-air, train, buses, and when
required they take care of arrangements
for ill persons to assure ambulances,
stretchers wheelchairs, or whatever is
required for the patient.

On Canal Widening Project

The widening project along Gaillard
Cut was the highlight of a 2-page article
in the November issue of the Excavating
Engineer, a monthly magazine in South
Milwaukee, Wis. The article explained
the purpose of the work and was com-
plete with pictures of tractors along the
Cut, a ship transiting Miraflores Locks,
yearly maintenance work at the same
locks, and a shot of the Thatcher Ferry

The Panama Canal was among film
sequences shown at Lima (Ohio) Senior
High School recently by world traveler-
lecturer Thayer Soule, according to the
Lima News.

A superior service award was received by Mrs. Joan O. Bensel of the New Orleans office
of the Panama Canal in a recent ceremony in New Orleans. The presentation was made by
R. O. Theriault, assistant director of the Panama Canal Supply and Community Service
Bureau. At left is Joseph B. McHugh, procurement officer in the Panama Canal New Orleans
office and at far right is Thomas Ender, chief, Food Branch, of the same office.

War-Blinded London Tourist Sought
Sound Picture Of Canal He Once Saw

From John Martin of London, a war-
blinded British veteran, came an un-
usual response after a transit of the
waterway and a unique request-for a
"sound picture." Martin wrote in part:
"My wife and I had the great pleasure
of passing through the Panama Canal
earlier this year, and it was my inten-
tion to make a tape recording of the
fascinating commentary you people
gave the passengers through the ship's
public address system. Unfortunately
my portable tape recorder broke down,
and there was no time to get it repaired.
"I try to send as many interesting
tapes as I can to other blind people in
all parts of the world, because I know
how much these sound pictures mean
to them.
"Could you possibly help me out by
sending me a dual track tape at 1%,
I.P.S., so that I can pass it on to all my
blind tape pals!"
"Naturally you could not send me a
full commentary-such as we were lucky
enough to hear-but I wonder if you
could send me a shortened version
giving us all the essential facts, figures
and the history of the Canal?
"I first passed through in 1918 when
I had perfect eyesight, and I still regard
the Panama Canal as one of the Seven
Wonders of the Moder World."
A special tape recording of "A Trip
Through the Panama Canal" has been
prepared and sent to Martin for his

enjoyment, and for distribution to other
blind persons.
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., gave the
introduction to the commentary, and
the general narration was done by
Frederic J. Berest of the Canal Zone
Guide Service.

February 3, 1964

Preparation of travel orders for eligible persons going to the United States or other countries
is one of the many complex duties of Passenger Rate Assistants in the Travel Branch. The
most direct routes, the least expensive, the quickest and those requiring least per diem are
sought. In addition an attempt is made to provide the traveler with adequate opportunities
for getting food and rest. Rate Assistants also try to help Canal employees plan the best
connections for "indirect travel" beyond their official point of destination.

Marie Herblin gained her first experience in
Federal travel techniques during World
War U when, as a Navy employee here, she
worked first on inductions for new em-
ployees, then evacuation of dependents,
and later the processing of the first women
workers recruited as a group for this area.
In 1952 she came with the Canal in per-
sonnel work, and in 1959 transferred to
the duties now handled by the Travel
Branch. Her designation is now Passenger
Rate Assistant, and she finds that her work
continues to present daily challenges. Mrs.
Herblin is married to James D. Herblin of
the Accounting Division. Their home is in
Los Rios. While they enjoy a swim now
and then, she finds that reading-almost
everything-and playing records-classical
and semi-classical fill up most of her
leisure time.


I. I ,


Forsaking a ship-deck at sea for a desk-
top at the Balboa Heights office of the
Travel Branch was not too much of a
change in duties for the newest Passenger
Rate Assistant who is W. Richard Shapiro.
As Assistant Purser and Relieving Chief
Purser aboard the SS Cristobal, and pre-
viously aboard other passenger liners, he
has been dealing with routes and fares for
16 years. Before joining Water Transporta-
tion in April 1962 he had worked out of
New Orleans aboard Alcoa, Delta, and
Luckenbach ships. Born in Honduras
where his father was a fruit company em-
ployee, Shapiro grew up bilingual, went
to school in the tropics, Texas and
Louisiana. He had a time-honored reason
for leaving the sea-a shipboard romance
that led to the altar last year. His bride
was a Canal Zone girl, Katherine Melanson.
They live in Balboa.

The Wapshot Scandal by John
Cheever is a second novel about the
famous Wasphot family of St. Botolphs.
This one, however, is a 20th Century
tale replete with tax collectors, well-
meaning upperclass ladies, a scientist of
towering intellect and an aging gentle-
man. Glenway Westcott, well-known
fellow author says that this is "a delect-
able and in-a-way glorious piece of
Take Heed of Loving Me, a biogra-
phical novel by Elizabeth Gray Vining,
presents the remarkable story of the
love of John Donne, poet, preacher
(and some said libertine) for a beautiful
young English girl. Many famous per-
sons appear in the pages of this story-
among them Elizabeth I, Essex, Raleigh
and Ben Jonson. This is a delightful
book and should be read by everyone.
People vs. Withes and Malone is a
group of Inner Sanctum mystery novel-
ettes by Stuart Palmer and Craig Rice.
This is a real treat in the detective story
field, with Withers and Malone, two of
the brightest stars in mystery fiction-
working together. There also is an
introduction written by Ellery Queen,
in which he reports engagingly on the
two authors, Stuart Palmer and Craig
Rice. All this makes excellent fare for
whodunit fans.
Apollo at Go by Jeff Sutton is a novel
which tells a realistic story of three
men's flight into space. This is a starkly
drawn picture of the details and drama
of a flight to the moon and the problems
of lunar landing and takeoff. The reason
for the venture is supplied succinctly
and understandably by an 8-year-old
boy. When asked why these men
wanted to go to the moon, he replied,
"Because it's there, that's what Dad
says." The author is an ex-newspaper-
man and an ex-Marine. He is currently
an editorial consultant in the aerospace
field in San Diego.
The Cincinnati Kid is a novel about

a rambling-gambling river man who
ruled the stud-poker circuit. The story
is told with a skill which results in a
tension-tight climax. For those who find
this type of fiction interesting, this tale
will be a spellbinder.
Minority Report by Elmer Rice is an
important and highly readable Ameri-
can biography. Mr. Rice's life has been
one of wide-ranging interests. Whether
he is telling of the sights and sounds of
his turn-of-the-century big city child-
hood, the technicalities of stage setting,
the story of his own marriages, or his
political credo, he presents them with
insight and objectivity. Indeed, he
appears to be an uncompromisingly
serious man-honest and objective. As a
playwright he has many resounding
hits to his credit, including the famous
Street Scene and the Adding Machine.

"Open Season" Near

On Group Life Insurance

Plan For Non-Citizens

An "Open Season" will be declared
from March 1 to April 1 for the Group
Life Insurance Plan for non-U.S.-citizen
employees of U.S. Federal agencies on
the Zone. Employees who have not sub-
scribed may do so then without a
medical examination.
This is the plan on which it was re-
cently announced the premium has
been reduced from 27% cents to 25
cents per pay period for each $1,000
of coverage.
The good record of this life insurance
coverage is responsible for the reduction
in premium.
Initially the Group Life Insurance
Plan for non-U.S.-citizen employees was
set at the 27% cents per $1,000 figure
under the contract with United of

P.C. Employees Eligible for Special Awards

Marking Incentive Program's 10th Year

Employees of the Panama Canal are
eligible for special national awards that
will be presented next November 30
in Washington, D.C., to a number of
Federal workers who have made
notable contributions toward increas-
ing efficiency and economy in U.S.
Government operations.
The awards will mark a decade of
progress under the Government Incen-
tive Awards Act, according to Civil

Caution Urged In Grass

Areas During Dry Season

Attention of Canal Zone residents
again has been called to the danger
existing during the dry season from
grass and brush fires and the need for
caution when entering grass areas.
During the dry season last year there
were 219 grass fires, the majority
of which were caused by discarded
cigarettes and matches.
These statistics provided by Chief
W. G. Dolan of the Canal Zone Fire
Division demonstrate vividly the direct
relation between careless smoking
habits and the origin of grass fires.
The Chief urges local residents enter-
ing, grass areas to exercise the greatest
possible care to prevent the occurrence
of fires and calls attention to the
1. Never toss a match or cigarette
carelessly away. If you are at home, or
in a car use an ashtray. Do not throw
cigars or cigarettes out of train windows.
Be sure that your smoking materials are
out before you dispose of them.
2. Provision of section 1115, title 6,
Canal Zone Code:
"Whoever willfully or negligently
sets on fire, or causes or procures to be
set on fire, grass or shrubbery on any
lands, shall be fined not more than $100
or imprisoned in jail not more than
30 days, or both. 76A Stat. 451."

Burned Lakonia Once

Transited Canal Regularly

A one-time regular Canal customer
came to a fiery and watery end when
the Greek passenger liner Lakonia sank
recently in the eastern Atlantic on a
cruise between the United Kingdom
and the Canary Islands.
As the Johan van Oldenbarnevelt, the
Lakonia passed through the Canal
every 88 days on a round-the-world run
started in 1959 when she was taken off
the Holland to Indonesia service. The
ship also made two trips through the
Canal in 1950 with cargo from the Far
Canal pilot Capt. Frank Kerley recalls
having handled the then-Dutch vessel
of which he has several photographs.

Tax Refunds Can Become

Savings Bond Nest Eggs

Taxpayers receiving income tax re-
funds this year can again turn them into
nest eggs by taking the refund in U.S.
Savings bonds.
The Treasury Department offers tax-
payers the option of receiving their tax
refunds in risk-free, interest-paying
bonds. All that is necessary is to check
the right box on the return and the rest
is automatic.
U.S. Series H Savings Bonds may
be obtained in exchange for Series
E Bonds when current income is
desired, a good item to remember when
retirement time comes.

Macy, Jr.
Award winners will be selected from

hasta que todas las esclusas queden
enteramente equipadas; tres grias
locomotoras, para uso en el muro
central de las esclusas, est6n inclui-
das entire el equipo ordenado.
Las seis maquinas iniciales sirvie-
ron para observer su funcionamiento
y determinar las mejoras o cambios
que su uso fuese sefialando como
convenientes, habiendose realizado
algunos cambios en el prototipo.
Las pruebas demostraron que las
nuevas "mulas" desarrollan mayor
energia o potencia y tienen la ven-
taja de variaciones de velocidad; es-
tas caracteristicas facilitan el manejo
de las naves en las esclusas y aceleran
su travesia.

sus operadores puedan seguir las
instrucciones dadas por los PrActicos.
Tanto los PrActicos cuanto los
jefes de las esclusas contarAn con
radio-parlantes de dos vias, porta-

mente su valor durante los recientes
disturbios. La comunidad prest6 su
pronto apoyo como se puede apre-
ciar repasando la lista de donantes
que aparece publicada en pAgina 2
de la secci6n inglesa de esta edici6n.
(Vale hacer la salvedad de que no
aparece en esa lista el nombre de
unos 40 donantes espontAneos que
se presentaron el 10 de enero en
moments Algidos.)
La sefiora Dorothy Hadstate, del
Hospital Gorgas, hizo tres llamados
en esa fecha y en cuesti6n de minu-
tos se presentaron los 40 volunta-
rios mencionados arriba.
En la costa atlAntica tambien se
registry similar reacci6n al pedido de
donantes, uno de los cuales estaba
dando su sangre en los precisos mo-
mentos en que se registraban des6r-
denes en las vecindades del Hospital
Coco Solo.
Auin cuando no se apunt6 el nom-

bre de esos 40 donantes en el albo-
roto del moment, el dia 10, su des-
prendimiento merece el reconoci-
miento general de la comunidad,
como el de todos los demas.

Maneje con Seguridad
Manejar es para muchos de noso-
tros, uno de los requisitos necesarios
para desempefiar nuestro trabajo.
Otros manejan por placer o por exi-
gencias de la vida modern.
Las unidades automotrices han
ocasionado mis heridos y muertos
que los causados por todas las gue-
rras ocurridas en el mundo. Este dato
es el resultado de studios estadisti-
cos cuidadosos hechos al respect, y
auin con el descubrimiento de la
bomba at6mica.
Una unidad automotriz es una
ayuda eficaz para, entire otras mu-
chas cosas, transportaci6n de perso-
nas, materials y equipos. Sin em-
bargo una unidad automotriz fuera
de control es extremadamente peli-
grosa y puede acabar con la vida del
chofer o la de otras personas, en
cuesti6n de segundos.
Se hace un llamado a todos uste-
des que tengan que manejar en algu-
na ocasi6n, un autom6vil, cami6n,
etc. ya sea en horas de trabajo o
cuando lo hacen por placer, en el
sentido de tener extreme cuidado
al estar manejando y recuerden siem-
pre estos puntos de importancia:
1. No exceda de los limits de velo-
cidad reglamentarios.
2. Maneje despacio durante la noche
y cuando est6 lloviendo.
3. HAgale un control complete al
vehiculo todo el tiempo.
4. Maneje por su derecha en las
5. No se estacione en las curvas.
6. Sea cort6s siempre.

a los residents de la Zona del Canal debido
al peligro existente durante la estaci6n
seca de los incendios de hierba y maleza y
la necesidad de ser cuidadoso cuando se
entra a las Areas llenas de hierba.
Durante la estaci6n seca del aflo pa-
sado se registraron 219 incendios de
hierba, la mayoria de los cuales fueron
causados por cigarrillos y f6sforos lanzados
Estas estadisticas proporcionadas por el
Jefe W. G. Dolan de la Division de Bom-
beros de la Zona del Canal demuestran
vivamente la relaci6n direct entire los
habitos descuidados del fumador y el
origen de los incendios de hierba.
El Jefe solicita a los residents locales
que entran en Areas Ilenas de hierba que
tengan el mayor cuidado possible para
evitar que ocurran incendios y llama la
atenci6n a lo siguiente:
1. Nunca tire un f6sforo o un cigarrillo
en forma descuidada. Si usted se encuentra

en su casa o en un autom6vil, use un ceni-
cero. No tire cigarros o cigarrillos por las
ventanas del tren. Est6 seguro que est6n
apagados antes de botarlos.
2. Disposici6n de la Secci6n 1115, Titulo
6, C6digo de la Zona del Canal:

temente provoque un incendio, causa o
procura hacer un incendio, en hierba o
arbustos en cualquier terreno, serA multado
con no mis de $100 o encarcelaci6n por no
mas de 30 dias, o ambos. 76A Stat. 451."
