Traffic through the Panama Canal
continued on a high level during the
month of February with all records,
both daily and monthly, being
broken during the 29-day period.
A total of 1,024 oceangoing ships
made the Canal transit during the
month, establishing a record daily
average of 35.3 ships.
Of this total 20 were U.S. Govern-
ment-owned vessels and 7 were
classed as free transits.
Although there were 29 days in
February this year, the traffic record
for February was broken by the end
of the 28th day.
The list of Canal customers during
February included the super tanker
National Defender which went
through the Canal February 27 with
46,860 long tons of bunker fuel oil

from Los Angeles to New York. The
U.S.-flag National Defender is 810
feet long and has a beam of 104.2
During the month there also were
121 other ships large enough to rate
daylight handling through Gaillard
Cut and 176 more given clear-Cut
preference. Four, including the
National Defender, had a length of
more than 751 feet and six had
beams of 102 feet or more. The aver-
age time spent by all ships in Canal
waters was 13.7 hours.
February was the second consecu-
tive record-breaking month. During
January 1,055 vessels of more than
300 Panama Canal net tons transited
the Canal. This exceeded the pre-
vious monthly record set in March
1963 by 25 oceangoing ships.

Versatile New Industrial Division

Official No Stranger to Isthmus

Swampchopper, Spud Duck and
Jumbo are not characters out of a
Walt Disney cartoon. They are
highly efficient and practical vehicles
used by the U.S. Army in difficult
They also are the brain children
of a versatile U.S. Navy reserve com-
mander who has served with the U.S.
Merchant Marine, the U.S. Navy
and the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers and who arrived on the Isthmus
recently to take over his new duties
as assistant chief of the Panama
Canal Industrial Division.
. Julius Grigore started his career
as an apprentice tool designer in the
Ford Motor Co. in Detroit. He is

Health Bureau

Hackers To Hold

Tourney Sunday

Divots will fly and Summit Golf
Course will undergo surgery Sunday
when the "Health Bureau Hackers"
begin to chop during their annual
Health Bureau Golf Tournament.
The golfing, which begins at 1
p.m., will match golfers and non-
golfers in a scotch-twosome tourna-
ment of 9 holes. During the tourna-
ment refreshments will be available
on the course. An even larger crowd
than last year's turnout of 70 is
expected to slice up the green turf
in quest of many prizes. Among the
prizes are 25 ceramic creations by
Mrs. Rita Berger and Mrs. Anne
The climax to a day of frustration
(to many people chasing a little
white ball around a field is no sport)
will be a dinner served in the dining
area of the club. The "Come and

gineering from the University of
Detroit, and a license as a profes-
sional mechanical engineer from the
State of Vermont.
As a man who can't resist a chal-
lenge, Grigore developed many of
his ideas when necessity became the
mother of invention. The Swamp-
chopper is an amphibious vehicle
equipped with a grass cutting arm
for chopping swamp grass. It was
developed for use in the marsh areas
of the Great Lakes. The Spud Duck
is another amphibian used for sub-
soil exploration in water up to 18
feet in depth. The Jumbo is classed
as the most mobile highwayable
truck in the U.S. Army Supply
Grigore also is the author of a
number of articles published on con-
struction and transportation equip-
ment, including one appearing in
the November-December issue of
the Military Engineer on a new type
of channel maintenance survey
barge called the Dragon, designed
and built for the Army Engineer
District in Detroit.
The method to drag channel
bottoms as described in this article
is similar to that now being used by
the Panama Canal Dredging Divi-
sion on an experimental basis to
drag the channel bottom of Gaillard
Cut for high spots.
With service in the Merchant
Marine, U.S. Navy and Army,
Grigore is no stranger to the Isthmus.
He came through the Canal on
various occasions as an engineer
officer on U.S. merchant marine
vessels and visited the Isthmus in
1957 as an observer of Operation
Caribex, a joint U.S. and Latin
American Armed Forces maneuver.
He was a planning and design
officer in the U.S. Navy from 1951
to 1954; U.S. Army Ordnance Project
Engineer, Amphibious Trucks, from
1954 to 1957; and from 1957 to the
time he came to the Isthmus, he was
in Detroit as chief of the Army
Plant Branch.

$13,500 in Fund

For Families of

Dead Servicemen

More than $13,500 has been con-
tributed by residents of the Canal
Zone, both civilians and members
of the U.S. Armed Forces, to a fund
which will be used to benefit the
families of the four U.S. servicemen
who gave their lives in performance
of their duty during the recent
Panama disorders.
The Servicemen's Survivors Fund,
sponsored by members of civic, reli-
gious and fraternal groups in the
Canal Zone, was started in January.
Almost immediately contributions
ranging from $1 to $100 began pour-
ing in. Most of the funds have been
contributed by individuals living
in the Canal Zone, although a
number of sizable checks have been
received from various organizations
and private companies.
When the fund is closed within
the next few days, the money will
be paid to the survivors on the basis
of need, according to the committee
in charge headed by George A.
Black. John I-I. Terry has been acting
as secretary and Edward G. Coyle
as treasurer.

Francis A. Castles, acting super-
intendent of the CanalZone Division
of Schools since November 1963,
has been promoted to Superinten-
dent of Schools effective Sunday,
March 15. He had held the position

wife and daughter.

Architecture Trends

In Latin America

Traced by Author

Art in Latin American Architec-
ture by Paul F. Damaz, with a
preface by Oscar Niemeyer, is a
beautiful and stimulating book
which can be of interest to the lay-
man as well as to the professional
artist or architect. The book is
organized into two sections.
Part I includes a survey of Latin
America, ranging from the sources
of its culture to the daring use which
Latin American architects have made
in combining native arts with
designing and building.
Part II describes examples with
photographs of construction in
which murals, sculpture, stained
glass, tiles, and mosaics have been
used as an integral part of famous
Latin American buildings. Business
and government structures, churches,
private houses, and theaters are
included in these accounts.
This is a major publication for
architects and artists who are con-
cerned with a return to the integra-
tion of their talents and the applica-
tion of them as practiced in Latin

By the simple act of lifting the

S&CS Bureau Wins

Governor's Safety

Trophy Third Time
The Canal Zone Governor's
Annual Safety Trophy for the calen-
dar year 1963 again has been earned
by the Panama Canal Supply and
Community Service Bureau. This is
the third year the bureau has re-
ceived this award. The Governor's
Safety Trophy was received by the
Supply and Community Service
Bureau in 1959 and then consecu-
tively in 1962 and 1963.
No date has been set as yet for
the formal presentation ceremony.
L. A. Ferguson, Supply and Com-
munity Service Bureau Director, dis-
cussing accident prevention in his
bureau stated:
"In our operations, accident pre-
vention and efficiency are one. . .
The familiar slogan 'Safety is No
Accident' is a reality in the Supply
and Community Service Bureau.
Safety to us is an 'all hands' effort.
"We have found that planning
safety into each job and then han-
dling the whole as an operational
problem with built-in safety pre-
cautions has made accident preven-
tion more a matter of foresight than
hindsight with very beneficial results
to our employees and to our

to the caller that you are there
(preferably on the first, never more
than the third, ring of the phone) to
be of service. Or do you give the
caller the impression that you are
annoyed by the interruption, by the
insistent clarior for attention which
he has caused by dialing your num-
ber, say "Just a minute," in a bored-
sounding voice, and send the phone
crashing loudly to your desk?
If the party he wants is your boss
and he is not available, how do you
handle that situation? Are you so
rude as to ask him to call back? If he
offers to do this, it is a gesture on
his part which you may graciously
accept, but you should never request
it! Offer to call him back yourself,
when the party is available, to save
your supervisor the inconvenience
and annoyance of "sweating out"
busy signals or the possibility that
now, the calling party is not available
to speak.
Do You Offer Help?
If the party calling seems to give
the impression (and he will, if you
listen carefully to his voice) that
he cannot wait to be called back at
some later time, how much trouble
do you take to satisfy his needs
yourself? Do you offer to do any-
thing for him, do you suggest
someone else for him to speak to?
If he decides to leave a message, he
has every right to put his confidence
in you to faithfully deliver that
message promptly and accurately so
that the action he requires is taken
in a proper and timely manner.
Surely, you don't send him away
frustrated and unsatisfied-not liking
you, or your agency
In the Canal organization, though
many employees, and the people in
and out of the organization with
whom they do business are bilingual
many more are not. Perhaps it doesn't
occur to you that a person who
learned English through the medium
of a textbook in a Spanish-speaking
country might not be able to under-
stand your smooth, Southern drawl,
Midwestern twang, New England
"A's." Since you don't know who is
on the other end of the phone, speak
as clearly and distinctly as you pos-
sibly can-and slow down a bit, too,
so that the name of your office and
your own doesn't become one long,
uninterrupted, unintelligible jumble
of alphabet soup which would be
impossible to sort out. If Spanish is
your native language, remember that

to many Americans who learned
Spanish by textbook, Castilian Span-
ish is the only Spanish there is.
About That Accent . .
They don't compare the existence
of a Panamanian accent to their own
regional accents of English from the
United States. Just as an American
accent might be hard to understand
when that American is trying to
speak Spanish, the Spanish accent
on the English language is sometimes
difficult for Americans to under-
stand-particularly on the telephone.
So slow down, speak distinctly,
clean it up!
Busy signals and wrong numbers
are two things which all of us have
to contend with day-by-day. But, if
you have obtained two wrong
numbers before finally reaching the

Careless Parking

Can Be Expensive

...and Dangerous

Do you park your car properly
when it's on an incline? If not, you
could be the cause of property
damage, personal injury-even death
-and your negligence cbuld be
A Canal Zone traffic regulation
states: "No person driving or in
charge of a motor vehicle shall per-
mit it to stand unattended without
first stopping the engine, locking the
ignition, removing the key, and
effectively setting the brake thereon
and, when standing upon any grade,
turning the front wheels to the curb
or side of the highway." Failure to
do so is a violation of the traffic
An accident resulting from a car
drifting away because the driver has
not taken the precaution of turning
the wheels sharply toward the curb
can be costly and serious. When
damage to property or person is
caused by this negligence the driver
will have to go to court, for a judge
to determine what penalty is to be
paid, depending on the circum-
stances. A jail sentence also could

the driver may be fined, $5 for the
first offense and $10 on a second

office you wished in the first place,
do you take out your wrath on the
person who answers that phone?
Why should you be angry at him?
You shouldn't, and you aren't, but
you're angry at something and have
to "take it out" on someone. Self
control is a good thing to develop if
you find yourself doing this.
Suppose you're answering one of
the wrong numbers that the person
dialed. Do you make the caller feel
as though he committed a Federal
offense, or deliberately interrupted
what you were doing to anger you?
Chances are, he'll apologize for the
inconvenience he has caused you.
Courteously accept his apology, don't
just hang up on him. You wouldn't
slam the door in someone's face if
they came to your house by mistake
would you? Yet, that's what you can
do on the phone, since the telephone
instrument is the only "door" at the

Easy on Those Ears
How do you terminate a conversa-
tion on the phone? Do you say
"goodbye" pleasantly at the comple-
tion of your business and gently
replace the instrument in its cradle, W
or do you just say things like "all
righty," "good, then," "O.K." and
slam the receiver into its cradle-
nearly breaking the eardrum of the
poor unsuspecting guy on the other
end who couldn't anticipate this
injury and insult you were going to
do him?
The Panama Canal organization is
an organization representative of the
United States of America. It has
business dealings with individuals
and business enterprises on an inter-
national scope. Can you honestly say
that you are doing everything you
can to favorably impress every
person and agency that attempts to
do business with your organization?
If you can't, then remember, the very
next time the telephone rings in your
office, that you aren't just saying
"Supply Division, Miss Jones speak-
ing, may I help you?"-you are
saying "I am The Panama Canal."

A gasoline station in Osaka, Japan,
is offering its customers tea and hot
baths while their cars are serviced
and washed. The purpose is to help
drivers relax and make them less

sale by the Zone police for the 26th
annual Canal Zone Police Ball
March 20 at the Fort Amador Offi-
cers' Open Mess. The tickets were
designed by Police Officer James L.
Dunn, ball chairman.

If you've ever been bothered
because you couldn't see any rela-
tionship between "mayday," the in-
ternational distress signal for ships
and planes, and "May Day," that
spring festival with the dance around
the maypole, you'll be relieved to
know that there isn't any connection
at all. Actually, "mayday" is simply
an Anglicized version of the French
m'aidez, which means "help me," and
it was adopted for radio SOS com-
munications because it's brief, clear,
unmistakable and can be pronounced
in most languages.

By Eleanor Burnham

The Peregrine Falcon is a nature
novel by Robert Murphy on the
order of Sally Carrigar's A Day on
Beetle Rock. The story follows the
life cycle of one of the greatest birds
of prey from her birth in the Cana-
dian wilds through her migratory
journey to the south. Although this
novel appears to be scientifically
accurate, it is told from the point of
view of the falcon herself. This
unusual approach provides a treat
to everyone-but especially to all
genuine nature lovers.
Castle Corer, by the late Joyce
Cary, is one of the author's early
novels which is now published in
the United States for the first time.
This panoramic novel introduces the
two Corner brothers-one as master
of an inherited Irish family estate,
a man of responsibility and good
will, and the other, foot-loose and
unstable. Mr. Cary's concern with
the effect of the character of these
two men on the people with whom
they come in contact gives a back-
ward glance into the development of
a fine writer. Mr. Cary's death in
1957 was a loss to the world of
Angelique in Love is the fifth in
a series of romantic adventure novels
by Sergeanne Golon. This one
is about the seventeenth century
French heroine aboard a pirate ship
bound for the New World. This is a
good picture of 17th century life
with plenty of action and excite-
ment. Historical novel fans will
be intrigued by it.
The Graveyard Rolls is a who-
dun-it by Maurice Procter about a
millionaire axe-murder victim. He
was found near his plush sage-green
SRolls-Royce by Chief Inspector Mar-
tineau, who, according to the New
York Times, is one of fiction's best
policemen. This novel lives up to
expectations. All mystery fans surely
should read it.
A Fine Madness, by Elliott Baker,
is an unusual novel composed of a
combination of funny situations and
serious ideas. The hero of the story
is Samson Shillitoe, who is an aging,

wrathful poet who seeks to maintain
his independence in a world which
he believes is trying to reduce him
to anonymity. This is Mr. Baker's
first published work.
Right Hand Opposite by Martin
Stern, a novel about the aircraft
industry, pictures the tension and
excitement in the life of a gifted
engineer who heads his company.
Because of this man's unique talents,
his precarious health causes a busi-
ness crisis. The author worked for
several years in the aircraft industry
and is particularly qualified to write
this story.

During the current year at least
55 major fairs will be held through-
out the world; 37 are scheduled in
Europe, 7 in America, 6 in Africa,
and 5 in Asia.

Gorgas Technician

Taking Special

Course in States

Louis E. Sprauve, a young Pan-
amanian laboratory technician at
Gorgas Hospital, left last week for
Walter Reed General Hospital in
Washington, D.C., to take an exten-
sive 6-month special training course
to study Papaniculeau Staining and
Identification technique.
The technique, commonly called
Pap tests, is useful in determining
early cancer.
Sprauve is the second technician
at Gorgas to be sent to the United
States for this type of training.
When he returns, it is expected he
will be used to support the Cancer
Detection Clinic which is to be
opened later this year under auspices
of the Canal Zone Cancer Com-
The Cancer Committee is furnish-
ing funds for the special training
course being taken by Sprauve and
probably will finance the training of
other Canal Zone Health Bureau
personnel in administration and other
details of the operation of a cancer
detection clinic.
Sprauve was born in Gatun 23
years ago. His father is an employee
of the Canal organization and he
was educated in the Canal Zone
schools. Before joining the staff of
Gorgas Hospital Laboratory, he
studied 2 years in the Canal Zone
Junior College. He is married and
has one child.

Looks as if Frank Azcirraga's feet
got so hot while he was at the
console of the Hammond organ at
Summit Gardens that he had to take
his shoes off to let the steam escape.
Actually, he'd just gotten a pebble
in a shoe while taking a break.

The Canal Zone Poison Informa-
tion Center is on the alert 24 hours
a day, continuously manned by a
physician, for every day is poison
control day in the Zone. The spot-
light is on the work of the Poison
Information Center this month espe-
cially, though, for the third week in
March is designated by Pres-
idential Proclamation "National
Poison Control Week."
The Canal Zone Poison Informa-
tion Center, founded in 1959, is
maintained by Dr. Daniel Hirschl,
chief of the Pediatric Service at
Gorgas Hospital, and his staff. But
the center is not limited to the
Pediatric Service, nor to Gorgas
Hospital. It is for the entire com-
munity, and the Canal Zone Poison
Information Center frequently an-
swers calls for assistance from the
Republic of Panama.
Since 1959, the Poison Informa-
tion Center has received more than
750 calls. Not all these calls have



U .oc~

been from physicians. A call from
any source concerning poison is given
immediate attention. In the event
a call reveals a potential poisoning,
the staff at the center goes into
action. The physician on duty calls
the hospital emergency room with
an alert for the arrival of the patient.
The emergency room physician is
told what the suspect poison is and
is informed about the treatment
recommended by the Poison Infor-
mation Center.
The Poison Information Center
has a vast store of information on
materials, natural or manufactured,
that may be poison sources. The
center physician also is able to
advise on what signs and symptoms
can be expected.
When a call is made to the Poison
Information Center the doctor re-
quires information concerning the
age of the individual suspected of
being poisoned, and what and how
much of a potential or known poison
has been taken.
Many calls also come to the center
regarding the breathing of noxious
fumes and mists, and about the
effect of certain materials when
these come in contact with a person's
Inquiries also come concerning
various products. In the case of trade
name products, the physician at the
center can tell the questioner what
chemicals or poisons are contained
in the products.
In the case of a suspected poison-
ing, get the patient to the nearest
hospital emergency room. For an
ambulance call: Pacific side-Balboa
1211; Atlantic side-Cristobal 1211.
The container of the substance taken
should be brought along with the

Session Held

On Filing Claims

This is the month when selected
personnel of the Canal organization
plus representatives of employee
civic and labor organizations may
learn the correct procedure in filing
Seminars and workshops on
March 13 and 20 will deal with
travel and transportation claims.
A seminar held on March 6 dealt
with safety and injury compensation.
Held at the' Balboa Theatre, the
sessions start at 8:45 a.m. and end
at 2:50 p.m., to enable Atlantic
siders to attend within normal
working hours.
H. D. Raymond, chief,. Claims
Branch, of the-Office of the Comp-
troller, is in charge of the seminars.
He is being assisted by W. H. Smith,
chief, Safety Section, and George
Vieto, chief, Transportation Branch.
Instructional material is distrib-
uted at each meeting.
The seminars meet the need of
employees to correct a general lack
of knowledge of the governing laws
and regulations in the processing
and adjudicating of employee travel
vouchers and personal claims.
Those attending are permitted to
submit questions in advance for
review by a working committee, with
answers prepared for incorporation
in the seminar material.

If we gave a safety award for the
"most successful fire-preventer," Burt
Wilkinson of New York City would
win it hands down. Wilkinson works
as a tester in a match factory where
he lights an average of 3,000 mat-
ches per day. In 20 years-and that's
5 million matches-he's never even
burned his fingers.

Jim Riley's ERA

A Fantastic 0.62

Balboa High School's Jim Riley,
a senior, is expected to get the start-
ing call Monday night against Canal
Zone College to close out the 1964
interscholastic season.
Riley, an almost certain choice for
the All-Zone team and Pitcher of
the Year honors, has compiled an
impressive record in 3 years on the
mound with the Bulldogs. Jim has
an overall won-lost record of 11-3
with 91 1/3 innings pitched. The
three losses came in his sophomore
year when he had a 1-3 record. He
has notched 134 strikeouts and has
allowed only 43 walks.
In 3 years he has allowed 37 hits
and only 16 runs, half of them
earned, for a fantastic 0.62 earned
run average. As if that weren't
enough, the 6 foot 1 inch lefty
closed out last season with a 1-0 no-
hitter against CZJC. He then opened
the current season with a 6-0 no-
hitter over the Schools Division AC.
In his next outing he was one strike
away from his third consecutive
no-hitter when a single to center
snapped the string.
One of the best hurlers the Canal
Zone has seen in a long time, Jim
could go far in the world of baseball.

"Lane" Guidance

For Bundle Boys

To Help Spot Cars

Directing bundle boys from the
Balboa Retail Store to the parking
lot will be easier as the result of an
employee suggestion just approved.
Large numbers will be used to
identify the lanes in the parking lot
to better direct bundle boys to the
proper car.
This is expected to eliminate some
confusion currently existing when
the lady of the house says, "Put the
bundles in the red Ford in the park-
ing lot" or something equally vague.
The new system will permit the
customer to say, "I am parked in
Lane No. whatever-it-is" as a pri-
mary direction before adding the

Los Ciclistas A6n

Son un Problema

En Aceras y Calles

Los ciclistas contiiian siendo un
Sproblema para los peatones en las
comunidades de la Zona del Canal.
Son numcrosas as l qucjas que se
reciben sobre el particular, en espe-
cial con relaci6n al transito de bici-
cletas por las aceras y al hecho de
que con frecuencia se llevan pasa-
jeros sobre las bicicletas.
Los reglamcntos quce rigen sobre
el tninsito vehicular en la Zona del
Canal establccn qlue "cuando al-
guna persona monte una bicicleta
sobre una acera, esa persona debe
de ceder el derecho de via a todo
pcat6n y dar social audible, oral o
de otra manera, antes de pasarse o
empareiarse con tales peatones."
Tambien estatuyen que "no se debe
transporter sobre una bicicleta mayor
nuimcro de personas que aquel para
el cual fue diseiiada y equipada."
Toda violaci6n de estos reglamen-
tos constitute una transgresi6n y
ofensa pilblica y el transgresor puede
ser procesado si tiene 7 afios de edad
o mims..
El reglamento tambi6n establece
que los padres o tutores de menores
que violent el mismo quedan sujetos
a procesamicnto si "autorizan o,
sabicndolo, permiten a los nifos bajo
su tutelage violar cualquiera de las
provisions sobre bicicletas."
Se pide a los padres de menores
residents en la Zona del Canal que
no escatimen esfuerzo en estimular
en ellos la observancia de los regla-
mentos sobre bicicletas.

En el ailo 46 A. de C. Julio Cisar
con la cooperaci6n del astr6nomo
egipcio Sosigenes, puso coto a la
confusion prevaleciente en la medi-
ci6n del tiempo, fijando el aiio solar
de 365 dias y un cuarto de dia,
conforme al sistema egipcio.

Fundado en 1959, cl Centro de
Informaci6n Sobre Venenos de la
Zona del Canal es operado por el
Dr. Daniel IIirschl, jefe del Servicio
de Pediatria del Hospital Corgas y
su personal subalterno. Pero no estA
limitado a la pediatria ni al Hospital
Corgas, ya que los servicios de ese
centro se exticndcn a today la colec-
tividad y, con frecuencia, se atien-
den solicitudes de ayuda prove-
nientes de la Repiiblica de PanamA.
Desde 1959 el centro ha recibido
mais de 750 llamadas. No todas pro-
vienen de m6dicos, pero no importa
de d6nde ni de qui6n procedan, todo
asunto relacionado con envenena-
mintos es atendido de inmnediato.
Si el caso concierne un envenena-
miento, el personal del centro entra
en acci6n. El medico de turno llama
lala sala de emergencia del hospital
para alertarlo sobre el arribo del
paciente, advirti6ndosele al medico
de esa sala de emergencia que se

Louis E. Sprauve, joven tecnico
de laboratorio, quien presta servi-
cios en el Hospital Gorgas, sali6 la
semana pasada para el Hospital
Walter Reed, de Washington, D.C.,
donde tomara un curso intensive es-
pecial de 6 meses sobre tecnica para
determinar el cAncer en sus inicios,
conocido como medio de identifica-

El joven panameno Sprauve es el

a los Estados Unidos para este tipo
de adiestramiento. Cuando regrese,
se utilizarAn sus servicios en la Cli-

sera inaugurada este afio bajo los
auspicios del Comit6 del CAncer de
la Zona del Canal.
Es ese comitA el que esta cos-

operaci6n de la clinic de detenci6n
del cAncer.
Sprauve naci6 en Gatuin hace 23

Cruzaron el Canal

Los trAnsitos por el Canal de
PanamA continuaron en un alto nivel
durante el pasado mes de febrero,
habiAndose establecido nuevas mar-
cas, tanto en el numero cotidiano
de cruces cuanto en los correspon-
dientes a un period de 29 dias.
Un total de 1,024 naves de alto
bordo cruzaron el Canal durante
ese mes, lo que arroja un promedio
diario de 35.3 naves.
De ese total, 20 eran naves per-
tenecientes al Gobierno de los Es-
tados Unidos y 3 realizaron trAnsitos
El record para febrero fue batido
en el 28" dia del mes y no se debe,
pues, al afio bisiesto.
Entre los usuarios del Canal en
febrero figure el super buque-cis-
tena National Defender, que lo
cruz6 el 27 de febrero con 46,860
toneladas largas de combustible, pro-
cedente de Los Angeles v destinado
a Nueva York. El National Defender
mide 810 pies de eslora y 104.2
pies de manga.
Durante el mes llegaron tambien
121 naves lo suficientemente grandes
como para ameritar un cruce diurno
por el Corte Gaillard, v 176 mAs a
las que se otorg6 prioridad.
Cuatro, incluvendo el National
Defender, median mAs de 751 pies
de eslora y 6 tenian manga de 102
pies o mas.
El promedio dc tiempo empleado
en aguas del Canal fue de 13.7
Febrero fue el segundo mes con-
secutivo en que se establecieron
nuevas marcas de trinsitos por el
Canal de Panama. Durante enero
1,055 naves-de mis de 300 tonela-
das del Canal de Panaml-transita-
ron por dicho Canal. Esa cifra
excedi6 en 25 la marca registrada
en marzo de 1963.



Los aficionados al cine reconoce-
rian como apelativos de personajes
de Walt Disney los nombres de
Swampchopper, Spud Duck y Jumbo
v quizAs desconociesen que se trata
de excelentes vehiculos militares
empleados por el Ejrcito de los
Estados Unidos para transitar sobre
terrenos accidentados.
Esos vehiculos fueron ideados por
un versatil Comandante de la Re-
serva Naval de EE. UU. (que tam-
bien tiene larga experiencia en la
marina mercante v el cuerpo de inge-
nieria del Ejercito) y quien lleg6 al
Istmo recientemente, para asumir las

Egresado de la Academia de la
Marina Mercante de Kings Point,
Julius Grigore, ostenta dos diplomas
de ingenieria mecanica de la Univer-
sidad de Detroit, asi como licencia
professional como ingeniero mecinico
expedida por el Estado de Vermont.
Crigore inici6 su carrera como apren-
diz en el diseio de herramientas en
la Ford Motor Co., en Detroit.
Grigore ha tenido muchas oportu-
nidades de comprobar que en efecto,
como reza el dicho, la necesidad es
madre de la invenci6n.
Baste considerar: el Swamp-
chopper (Corta-Pantanos) es un ve-
hiculo anfibio equipado con un
brazo-guadafia que fue disefiado
para las ireas pantanosas de los
Grandes Lagos. El Spud Duck (Pato-
Azad6n?) es otro vehiculo anfibio
para la exploraci6n del subsuelo su-
mergido hasta bajo 18 pies de agua.
Con respect al Jumbo, se le clasi-
fica como el camidn mas maniobrable
de los empleados por el sistema de
abastecimientos del Ej6rcito de los
Estados Unidos.
Grigore es autor, igualmente, de
numerosas cr6nicas sobre equipo de
construcciOn y de transport, inclu-
sive una aparecida en la edici6ni
correspondiente a novicmbre y di-
ciembre de la rcvista de Ingenieria

La victoria obtenida el martes por la noche en el Palacio de los Deportes de
Paris por el pigil panameiio Ismael Laguna sobre el cubano Angel "Robinson"
Garcia, lo ha colocado en una posici6n envidiable para disputar la corona mun-
dial de peso pluma al campe6n Ultiminio "Sugar" Ramos, de Cuba, que ahora
reside en M6xico.

Laguna se repuso de dos caidas el martes para lograr un triunfo por decision
unAnime sobre Garcia, a quien la revista "The Ring" tiene clasificado como el
primer peso junior welter del mundo, es decir, tres categories por encima de la
division de Laguna, que es el primer peso pluma del mundo tanto en las clasi-
ficaciones de la Asociaci6n Mundial de Boxeo como de la revista "The Ring."

Rodrigo SAnchez, Vicepresidente
Regional para la Am6rica Latina de
la Asociaci6n Mundial de Boxeo, ha
enviado una carta a Emile Bruneau,
President del Comit6 de Campeo-
natos Mundiales de la AMB, recor-
dAndole que en comunicaci6n ante-
rior habia dicho que Ramos tendria
que defender su titulo frente al pri-
mer retador de la division, despu6s
de su defense ante el japon6s Mitsu-
nori Seki, a quien venci6 por nocaut
t6cnico el 19 de marzo en Tokio.
SAnchez busca que Bruneau obli-
gue a Ramos a defender su titulo
frente a Laguna, o de lo contrario
se declare vacant la corona de las
126 libras.

puesto a montar el pleito en el Istmo,
dando una garantia de $40,000 a
Ramos y $10,000 a Laguna. Valdes
hizo un viaje a M6xico hace un par
de meses para conseguir la firma de
Ramos, pero este declar6 que lo haria
despu6s de su pelea con Seki.

El apoderado de Laguna, Isaac
Kresch, declar6 que habia recibido
una oferta del agent de boxeadores
Dewey Fragetta, de Nueva York,
para que el p6gil colonense se mida
con el invicto campe6n pluma mexi-
cano Vicente Saldivar el 19 de mayo
en la Ciudad de M6xico.
Kresch ha contestado la oferta
solicitando $10,000 y tres pasajes de
ida y vuelta, considerando la envi-
diable posici6n en que se encuentra
su pupilo en las clasificaciones mun-
diales de la division.
Parece poco probable que Laguna
pelee en Mexico, debido a la altura
de la ciudad, pues se ha compro-
bado que ello afecta notablemente
al destacado boxeador del Istmo. Su
6nica derrota frente al colombiano
Antonio "Mochila" Herrera se regis-
tr6 en BogotA, Colombia, en donde
la altura afect6 much a Ismael. En
la revancha celebrada en PanamA La-
guna oblig6 a Mochila a tirar la
toalla y darse por vencido.

de la profesora Thelma Osorio, que tom6 parte en la Semana de Educaci6n
