THE PANAMA CANAL

ICJ ENDS HEARINGS ON "HUMAN RIGHTS;"



U.S. POINTS AIRED AT PRESS CONFERENCE


Panama Canal traffic hit another
peak during the week of March 8 to
14 when a total of 284 oceangoing
ships passed through the Canal,
bringing the daily transit average
to 40.4 ships, the highest in the
history of the waterway. The pre-
vious record week fell the third week
in January this year when there
were 256 oceangoing ships in a
7-day period.
Last week, the busiest in the
history of the Canal, included a
record making traffic day, during
which the number of oceangoing
vessels handled in a 24-hour period
rose to 47 ships, the all-time daily
record.
Ships using the Canal during the
record week included the San Juan
Pioneer, one of the biggest vessels
to use the Panama Canal and 48
other ships which were given clear-
Cut transit handling. Of these 22
required transit during the daylight
hours.
The daily average of ship traffic
during the first 15 days of the month
of March rose to 36.3 ships as com-
pared to the former record of 35.3
ships established in the 29-day
month of February 1964.
The heavy traffic arriving at the
Panama Canal during recent weeks
follows a fairly well established
pattern set over the years. The pat-
tern indicates that a traffic surge can
be expected at the Panama Canal
during the months of January, March
and May. These months have
always been peak traffic months in


Canal records. The record set during
the month of February, however,
did not follow previous trends.
The year of 1964 started off with
a traffic jam of 1,055 vessels of more
than 300 Panama Canal net tons
transiting the Canal during the
31-day period. This was a record
for the number of oceangoing ships
to use the Canal in 1 month. This
total exceeded the previous record
set in March 1963 by 25 ships. The
traffic in January also included a
record-breaking super tanker-ore
carrier, the 835-foot San Juan Pros-
pector, sister ship of the San Juan
Pioneer. This giant came southbound
in ballast on January 22.
February brought a total of 1,024
oceangoing ships and a record daily
average of 35.3 ships. It brought
kudos also for the employees who


handled the traffic and brought the
average time spent by all ships in
Canal waters down to 13.7 hours
during the first 8 months of the
fiscal year 1964. The average time
for all ships in Canal waters from
one entrance to the other in 1962
and 1963 was more than 15 hours.
With traffic at a record peak both
from the standpoint of the number
of and size of ships, there were few
delays and only one bonafide hold-
over. Some overtime was authorized
for the locks crews at Gatun in order
to handle the peak traffic. Work is
in progress on the Atlantic locks for
the installation of 60-cycle power in
the locomotive tracks to be used by
the Panama Canal's new towing loco-
motives. Twelve of the new "mules"
already are in use on the east lane
of Gatun.


Colorful Kiddie Train at Summit

Will Provide Rides for Children
More fun for the small fry is on tap at Summit Gardens.
A colorful Kiddie Train to provide rides for the children and more
leisure time for the parents is being added to the weekend attractions
of the park this Saturday.
The five-coach "Toonerville-Trolley," pulled by a gas-driven cargo
mule, will circle the gardens at regular intervals offering free rides to
the children.
Bolted to flat-bed trailers of the type used to move cargo and baggage
at piers, the gaily decorated coaches can accommodate between 40
and 50 children.
Equipment for the Kiddie Train is being supplied by the Terminals
Division, panel decorations and signs by the Community Services
Division. The Information Office is coordinating the project.


U.S. Counsel Stresses


Three Major Points


(The following information was obtained at a press conference
held by Joseph Califano, Jr., General Counsel, Department of
the Army, the U.S. legal representative at the hearings of the
International Commission of Jurists.)


The United States placed the
blame for the January rioting in th,
Canal Zone primarily on lack o:
action by the Panamanian Govern
ment, as 10 days of testimony endec
last Friday before a multina
tional committee of lawyers probing
charges that human rights of Pan
amanian citizens were violated
during the disturbances.'
The American delegation to hear
ings in Panama City also alleged thai
extremist groups as well as irrespon.
sible newspaper, radio, and TV
reporting in Panama contributed tc
the violent incidents upon which the
Panamanian Bar Association base
its charges.
In a press conference, U.S. lega
representative Joseph Califano, Jr.
General Counsel, Department of the
Army, said a report from the three
members of the International Com-
mission of Jurists is expected within
2 months. Two of the ICJ members
are returning to Geneva and the
third will go there later after a
vacation.
The testimony required about 100
hours, Califano said. It will fill more
than 800 pages when transcribed
from the 50 tapes on which it was
recorded.
He said the United States is con-
vinced that "criminal and extremist
elements took control of the situa-
tion no later than 2 hours after the
anti-U.S. rioting started the night
of January 9."
The U.S. case stated that the
Panamanian Government took no
effective action to control or halt the
rioting or looting for 3 days following
the outbreak of the riots in the late
afternoon of January 9. The jurists
repeatedly asked Panamanian repre-
sentatives for information on the
arrest of looters and about the steps
taken to halt the rioting.
The second point stressed by the
United States in assessing blame
was that inflammatory broadcasts by
Panamanian radio and TV stations
served to further incite the rioters
and spread violence. "This continued
even after the Panamanian Govern-
ment officially took over the radio
and TV stations," Califano said.
Extremists were the third ele-
ment that acted as a goad to the
mobs, he said. He pointed out that
on January 11 Deputy Secretary of
Defense Cyrus Vance and U.S.
Assistant Secretary of State Thomas
Mann told Panama Foreign Minister
Galileo Solis, that the United States
would furnish a list of 10 known
agitators, some of whom were Com-
munists; and that control could be
more readily established if these
persons were taken into custody by
the Panamanian authorities. "The


e Foreign Minister said these persons
e would be picked up if we gave them
f the list. We did," said Califano, "but
- the next day 6 of the 10 on that list
i were leading the funeral procession
- for Panamanians who died in the
g riots and some of them were
- holding flags in that march."
1 The jurists viewed three movie
films on the march of the Panama-
- nian students to Balboa High School
t and on the widespread violence that
- followed. About 150 photographs
and dozens of documents were
) introduced by the U.S. representa-
e tives. The United States also played
I a tape recording in which a Panama
radio station was heard passionately
1 urging the people to continue the
, riots. The Panamanian representa-
e tives also submitted a large number
3 of photographs, documents and
- printed material. Twenty-five wit-
a nesses testified, 15 for Panama, and
s 10 for the United States. The pro-
a ceedings were conducted along less
Formal lines than those generally
observed in courts.
U.S. attorneys gathering evidence
interviewed hundreds of military
I personnel involved and scores of
Canal Zone police who were on duty
during the riots.
On the ICJ panel were Dr. Navroz
Vakil of India, a trial lawyer; Profes-
sor Gustaf Petren of Sweden, a
judge; and Professor A. N. Belin-
fante of The Netherlands, a trial
lawyer and professor at the Univer-
sity of Amsterdam.
The Commission has published
nine major reports: Hungary (3),
Tibet, South Africa, Liberia, Tunisia,
the Berlin Wall, and Cuba. These
have been described as models of
thoroughness.



"Arctic Tower"


To House Radar


For Air Traffic
The new "Arctic Tower" dome
atop one of the hills near Gamboa
represents the beginnings of greater
control of aircraft that will arrive
and depart airfields on the Isthmus
of Panama.
Scheduled for commissioning some-
time this fall, this facility will house
long-range radar equipment that
"paints" a detailed picture of air
traffic in a 360-degree circle ranging
many miles out from the dome. This
flight data will be relayed to radar

Final tests before shipment to the Panama Canal are shown being given in
Japan to this 14-ton capacity locomotive crane on the test track at the
Misubishi Shoji Kaisha works. The test track, with incline, is the one used
to test the Canal's new towing locomotives. This crane arrived at the
Canal early in March.


First of 3 New


Locks Locomotive


Cranes Is Tested

The first of three locomotive cranes ordered from Japan for use on the
Panama Canal locks was undergoing tests this week on a special track set
up at Gatun for testing the new towing locomotives.
The crane arrived early this month aboard the SS Pioneer Mill and was
unloaded on the east wall of Gatun Locks. Assembly of the crane was
started immediately afterwards.
The new crane can be operated on the same type of track as the new
towing locomotives and, when placed in use, will be located permanently
on the Gatun Locks center wall.
After the tests have been completed successfully, the manufacture of two
other similar cranes to be used at Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Locks will
proceed. At present they are scheduled for delivery in January and
August 1965.
The three locomotive cranes are part of an order for 59 towing locomo-
tives being constructed by Mitsubishi Shoji Kaisha, Ltd. in Japan for the
Panama Canal. The first of their type to be purchased by the Canal, they
will be used for maintenance and overhaul work on the locks.
Meanwhile it was announced that three more towing locomotives are
to arrive from Japan next week. Already 12 are in operation in Gatun.

For Education

On Bike Riding
It's a long time since Christmas,
but those bicycles and their riders
continue to pose a problem in the
Panama Canal communities. Com-
plaints specifically deal with the
riding of bicycles on sidewalks and
the carrying of passengers on
bicycles.
Regulations on highways, vehicles
and vehicular traffic in the Canal
Zone provide that "whenever any
person is riding a bicycle upon a
sidewalk, such person shall yield the
right-of-way to any pedestrian and
shall give audible signal, by voice
or otherwise, before overtaking and
passing such pedestrians." The same
regulations provide that "no bicycle
shall be used to carry more persons
at one time than the number for
which it is designed and equipped."
Any violation of these regulations
is made a crime or public offense
and an offender can be prosecuted
if 7 years of age or over. Another
Regulation provides that the parents
or guardians of juveniles violating
these regulations may be similarly
prosecuted if they "authorize or
knowingly permit any such child or
ward to violate any of the provisions
of the bicycle regulations."
Parents of the children in each
Panama Canal housing community
are urged to educate their children
in bicycle safety and in observance
of the bicycle regulations.


CRASH HELMETS
Attention motor scooter and motor-
bike riders! Crash helmets are now
on sale in the retail store sporting
goods sections. With the rainy season
coming up, and the slippery roads
that come with it, the Safety Branch
warns, a crash helmet to protect a
head in case of a spill is a good
investment. A "better to be safe than
sorry" investment.

Battle at Best is another in a series
of books about combat by Brigadier
General S. L. A. Marshall, author of
Pork Chop Hill. This latest book
covers eight critical actions of World
War II and the Korean War. In the
words of Major General J. F. C.
Fuller, who wrote the foreword for
Battle at Best, "this book not only
makes exciting reading . but fills
a gap in historiography." He is cer-
tain that "no one who reads it will
lay it down without feeling that he
himself has been in the combat line."
Diagrams and sketches by Garver
Miller clarify for the layman General
Marshall's excellent analyses of the
battles described.
Wind from the Carolinas, by
Robert Wilder, is a long and absorb-
ing historical novel. The family
around which the story is built is
fictional but the historical aspects
are true. The sad fate of the Loyalist
families who fled the U.S. south-
eastern coast after the Revolutionary
War results in a story full of suf-
fering, disillusion and adventure.
Wilder's novels include such best
sellers as Written on the Wind, The
Sun is nmy Shadow, and The Wine
of Youth.
The Big Roundabout, by Darwin
Teilhet, is a suspense story of indus-
trial espionage in the rocket industry.
The hero, who is completely inno-
cent, if a bit naive, gets himself
involved in the frightening and cut-
throat world of industrial spying.
This is a thriller which will appeal
not only to mystery fans but to any
reader who enjoys well-plotted and
original novels.
Henry of Navarre, sub-titled The
King Who Dared, is a fascinating
biography of the famous gallant,
Henry IV of France, by Hesketh
Pearson. In his preface to the book,
Pearson says: "the character of
Henry IV appealed to me at the age
of 12 when I came across him in the
stirring pages of Dumas and Stanley
Weyman." The personality of this
remarkable ruler, as was the case
with Pearson, has continued to
intrigue many historians and casual


readers throughout the four centuries
since his birth. Pearson's style is
sympathetic, witty and thoroughly
readable. This is one of the best
biographies of the year.
The Little Girls is an interesting
and smoothly written novel by
Elizabeth Bowen, a noted literary
stylist. In this story, the author brings
together, after nearly half a century,
three women who shared secrets as
schoolgirls. This is a leisurely tale
which may not interest readers of
fast-paced thrillers. The calm and
serenity of the slowly developing
plot surely will appeal to those who
have the time to enjoy this kind of
story.
The Brass Key is an Inner Sanctum
mystery by Francis Swann. The key
in the title provides the clue which
unlocks the long-hidden secret of a
25-year-old murder. Swann's name
is well known in the literary and
entertainment field. Following his
graduation as a professional engineer
he directed a musical comedy, acted
in summer stock, and has written
plays, opera, reviews, and innumer-
able short stories. This is his first
mystery novel.



AD-CONSCIOUS AGE
A Minnesota pedestrian charged
with jaywalking because he had
ignored a "Don't Walk" sign, came
up with an excuse that should pro-
duce howls of laughter along Madi-
son Avenue. He said that he thought
the sign was an advertisement for a
taxicab company.



WHO DID IT?
In Beeston, England, magistrates
threw a careless driving case out of
court because the drivers of the two
vehicles involved gave such confused
stories that responsibility for the acci-
dent could not be determined. The
vehicles were a police car and a fire
engine.

President of American Merchant Marine Institute


Challenges View That Panama Canal Is "Less Vital"


(The following article is re-
printed through courtesy of the
Shipping Digest, in which it
originally appeared.)

Weighing American-flag shipping
problems before a luncheon meeting
of the Naval Academy Association
of New York, Ralph E. Casey, pres-
ident of the American Merchant Ma-
rine Institute, declared he had heard
numerous statements implying that
the Panama Canal was less vital from
the standpoint of national security
than in the past.
He said it was astonishing that
such statements had gone unchal-
lenged.
"From a layman's point of view,"
the speaker continued, "it would
strike me as extremely dangerous to
accept these statements without
very careful study and evaluation at
the highest levels.
"The fact that we now have a two-
ocean Navy surely does not auto-
matically rule out the possibility that
a major outbreak on one side of the
world, or even a naval disaster such
as Pearl Harbor, may call for rapid
movement of reinforcements between
oceans. In fact, flexibility of naval
operations as between the Atlantic

and Pacific Oceans would seem significant a demonstration it had
essential, in any event." been.


"Crucially Important"
To American commercial shipping,
Casey asserted, the maintenance of
uninterrupted transit facilities at the
Canal Zone is crucially important.
He noted that, according to a recent
tabulation, 25 percent of all voyages
by U.S.-flag merchant ships involve
use of the Canal.
"Any facility which plays as large
a part as this in the operation and
hence the survival of an industry
which Congress has declared essen-
tial to national defense," he said, "can
hardly be written off as a defense
non-essential."
The merchant marine spokesman
asserted that, under only one condi-
tion could it be argued that the
Canal had lost its importance to our
security. This was if it were conceded
at the same time that the Navy and
the merchant marine were likewise
to be relegated to the status of a
convenience rather than a necessity.

"Needs" Related
But no one, he said, "has yet, to
my knowledge, said that we no
longer need a Navy, or a merchant
marine. So long as we need seapower,
we must have the Canal."
Casey cited the view of the
Secretary of Defense that passenger
ships were no longer a military
necessity, since troops would in the
future be moved by air. However,
he pointed out, only a few months
later, when the Cuban missile crisis
broke, every passenger ship owner
was called upon by the defense
authorities to hold his ships ready for
Government requisition at a mo-
ment's notice. "And this was only to
lift troops across less than 100 miles
of water!"
With reference to "Operation Big
Lift," designed to demonstrate the
superiority of airlifting troops, Casey
said he had been to Washington to
learn exactly how successful and


Air Equipment Seaborne
He said that it must be realized
that the equipment for the airborne
troops had been transported by sea
and placed in position over a space
of more than a year, that the planes
to carry them had been pre-posi-
tioned in Texas, and that the best
landing facilities in Germany had
been selected for the operation.
Under actual conditions of war,
all this would be very different, not to
mention the fact that all continuing
supply must be by ships and that
vast quantities of aircraft fuel must
be transported by tanker for every
such lift.
As a final point, he noted that,
"even though cost may mean little
in war," it is significant that it costs
$995 to move a ton of cargo from
California to Maine by air, as against
$31 by ship.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


March 20, 1964


People in the Spotlight

An ambition to drive over the Alcan Highway is to be
satisfied by Arthur T. Cotton, Balboa postmaster, when
he retires from Panama Canal service next August. He's
planned that trip a long time and now waits for the day
when he can claim he's motored "from Alaska to
Panama."
He will complete 39 years' service with the Canal
organization, and all that service has been with the
Postal Department. He started work in the Canal Zone i
postal service on May 28, 1924. On August 25, 1925
he resigned to return to school. He came back to the
postal service July 7, 1926 and has been there ever
since.
Arthur Cotton was born in Beachmont, Mass. He was
in his early teens when he came to the Canal Zone with \
his parents in December 1923. His father was with the
Cold Storage Plant of the Commissary Division at
Mount Hope, and young Arthur attended Cristobal
High School. His schooling was completed in Boston,
Mass.
In the postal service he moved up the ladder from ,
assistant postmaster at Cristobal to postmaster at Ancon,
January 1947 to October 1949. In 1949 he was promoted
to postmaster at Balboa, a position he has held up to
retirement. Last year he received an outstanding After retiring and leaving the Panama Canal, Mr. and

Eldridge N. Burton, assistant postmaster at the Balboa
Post Office, departs from the tradition for a postman.
He doesn't take a walk in his spare time-he goes
swimming! Besides swimming most every day, he is
learning the intricacies of square dancing in a class he
and his wife have joined.
Mr. Burton, who was born in Monroe, Ga., attended
schools in White Plains, Ga., and probably gave little
thought of the Canal Zone as a place of abode until
his brother was assigned to an Army post here.
Eldridge Burton's first Panama Canal employment was
with the District Quartermaster during the building
of the Madden Dam Road. He then transferred to a
clerk's job in the Municipal Engineering Division and
2 months later accepted a job as a railroad mail clerk.
His work entailed three trips a day between the Atlantic
and Pacific sides of the Isthmus, putting mail off along
the way for a railway mail service was in operation
at the time. The railway mail clerks were assigned a
bachelor room at each side of the Isthmus and as pay
received $80 a month.
For 1 year he worked as a clerk at the Ancon post
office and then was assigned to the Cristobal post office
until about 1933, when he was transferred to the Fort
Davis post office. Shortly after World War II was Mr. Burton returned to Ancon post office as assistant

THE PANAMA CANAL





SPILLWAY


Viemer 20 de Marzo de 1964


Juristas Terminan Labor en Panama


UU. Expone sus Puntos de Vista


La Comisi6n Internacional de Juristas aparece aqui en la Casa de Hu6spedes Tivoli. De izquierda a derecha,
Di6genes Arosemena y Eduardo Vald6s, dos de los abogados que representaron a PanamA; los juristas A. N.
Belinfante, de Holanda, Navroz Vakil, de la India y Gustaf Petren, de Suecia; Joseph Califano, Jr., Asesor
Juridico del Departamento del Ej6rcito de los Estados Unidos; Carl E. Davis (de espaldas) Director de la
Oficina de Informaci6n de los Estados Unidos en PanamA y Sterling J. Cottrell, representante del Departa-
mento de Estado de los Estados Unidos.





NUEVA MARCA DE TRANSITOS ESTABLECIDA:


284 EN UNA SEMANA 0 40.4 NAVES POR DIA

Una nueva marca en travesias del Canal de PanamA qued6 establecida durante la semana
comprendida entire el 8 y el 14 de marzo, cuando 284 naves de alto bordo cruzaron la via inter-
ocednica, lo que arroja un promedio diario de 40.4, el mis alto en la historic del Canal. La
marca ahora superada fue establecida en la tercera semana de enero de este afio cuando cruza-
ron el Canal 256 naves de alto calado. Pero la semana pasada constituy6 la de mayor movimiento
maritime, inclusive un dia durante el cual se alcanz6 la cifra mayor de trAnsito para un period
de 24 horas, cuando pasaron por el Canal 47 barcosl


Entre los barcos que pasaron por
el Canal en esa hist6rica semana es-
tuvo el San Juan Pioneer, uno de los
mas grandes de los que cruzan por
el Canal, asi como 48 otras naves
de alto bordo que merecieron prio-
ridad en el trAnsito; de entire esos 22
requirieron pase diurno del Canal.
El promedio diario de trAnsitos
durante los primeros 15 dias de
marzo mont6 a 36.3 naves, compa-
rado con el anterior record de 35.3
establecido en el mes de febrero de
Seste afio, que solo contaba con 29
dias.
El incremento en travesias durante
recientes semanas se ajusta a una
norma bien definida con el correr de
los afios, la cual denota que durante
los meses de enero, marzo y mayo
puede esperarse un aumento en trAn-
sitos del Canal, ya que siempre se
produce esa situaci6n en esos meses.
Cabe la salvedad de que las marcas
registradas en febrero pasado no se


ajustaban a ninguna norma anterior.
El afio actual se inici6 con una
aglomeraci6n de 1,055 naves de mis
de 300 toneladas netas (m6todo
Canal de PanamA), que cruzaron la
via en un period de 31 dias. Eso
constituy6 una nueva marca para el
nimero de naves de alto bordo en un
mes, ya que superaba la anterior
en 25 barcos.
Las travesias de enero incluyeron
igualmente un super carguero de
minerales, el San Juan Prospector,
de 835 pies de eslora, que marc6
nuevo record, junto con el barco
gemelo San Juan Pioneer, gigan-
tesca nave que pas6 en lastre el 22
de enero.
En febrero cruzaron el Canal
1,024 naves, fijAndose una nueva
marca de 35.3 buques por dia. El
period en que las naves estuvieron
en aguas del Canal baj6 a un pro-
medio de 13.7 horas para los prime-
ros 8 meses del afio fiscal 1964,


mereciendo elogios todo el perso-
nal encargado del manejo de esas
travesias.
El promedio anterior en que las
naves permanecian en aguas del
Canal durante 1962 y 1963 era
mayor de 15 horas.
A pesar de que el trAnsito mari-
timo alcanz6 cifras maximas, tanto
en el n6mero de unidades cuanto
en el tamaino de las mismas, no se
produjeron demoras, except las
justificables.
A fin de que atendiesen el inusi-
tado trabajo se autoriz6 sobretiempo
para el personal de las Esclusas de
Gat6n durante el period mAs algido.
Los trabajos para instalar energia
de 60 ciclos en las lines f6rreas de
las esclusas del AtlAntico para las
nuevas "mulas" sigue adelantando.
Doce de esas "mulas" ya estAn pres-
tando servicio en el muro Este de
Gatiin.


Califano Celebra


Rueda de Prensa


Estados Unidos atribuy6 primor-
dialmente a la falta de acci6n del
Gobierno panamefio los disturbios de
enero en la Zona del Canal al con-
cluir el viernes pasado 10 dias de
testimonio rendido ante una Comi-
si6n de juristas internacionales que
investiga los cargos de que los dere-
chos humans de ciudadanos pana-
mefios fueron violados durante esos
acontecimientos.
Los representantes norteamerica-
nos en las indagaciones levadas a
cabo en Panama tambi6n alegaron
que grupos extremists asi como la
irresponsabilidad de algunos diaries,
emisoras y televisoras de PanamA
contribuyeron a los violentos inci-
dentes sobre los cuales el Colegio
de Abogados de PanamA fund sus
cargos.
Durante conferencia de prensa, el
representante legal de los Estados
Unidos, Joseph Califano, Jr., Asesor
Juridico del Departamento del Ej6r-
cito, dijo que para dentro de 2 meses
se espera el informed de los tres
miembros de la Comisi6n Interna-
cional de Juristas. Dos de los miem-
bros de la comisi6n regresan a
Ginebra y el tercero regresarA
despues de unas vacaciones.
Las declaraciones de los testigos
se prolongaron por espacio de unas
100 horas, segln dijo Califano,
y la transcripci6n de las 50 cintas
magnetof6nicas ocuparA mAs de 800
piginas. Afiadi6 Califano que Es-
tados Unidos estA convencido de
que elemento extremist y criminal
se apoder6 de la situaci6n por lo
menos 2 horas despues de iniciarse
los motines en la noche del 9 de
enero.
Estados Unidos manifest en su
alegato que el Gobierno pana-
mefio no adopt medidas efectivas
para controlar o detener los tumultos
y saqueos durante 3 dias despu6s
de que se produjeron los disturbios
al atardecer del 9 de enero. Los
juristas pidieron repetidamente a los
representantes panamefios que die-
sen informaci6n sobre el arrest de
los saqueadores y sobre las medidas
tomadas para poner coto a los
tumultos.
El segundo punto aducido por los
Estados Unidos en apoyo de su im-
pugnaci6n de culpabilidad fue que
radiodifusiones inflamatorias de las
emisoras y televisoras panamefias
sirvieron para incitar mAs a los
amotinados y propagar la violencia.


"Esto continue afn despu6s de
que el Gobierno panamefio control
oficialmente las estaciones de radio
y television," dijo Califano.
El abogado norteamericano cit6
como tercer factor de incitaci6n a
los elements extremists. Sefial6
que el 11 de enero el Secretario
Auxiliar de Defensa, Cyrus Vance,
y el Ayudante Secretario de Estado,
Thomas Mann, manifestaron al Mi-
nistro de Relaciones Exteriores de
Panama, Galileo Solis, que los Esta-
dos Unidos proporcionaria una lista
de 10 agitadores conocidos, algunos
de los cuales eran comunistas; y que
la situaci6n podria ser dominada
mAs fAcilmente si esas personas fue-
sen mantenidas bajo custodia por
las autoridades panamenas.
"El Ministro de Relaciones Exte-
riores dijo que esas personas serian
detenidas si nosotros suministrAba-
mos la lista. Asi lo hicimos," dijo
Califano, "pero al dia siguiente, 6
de los 10 que aparecian en la lista
encabezaban la procesi6n finebre
de los panamefios muertos en los
motines y algunos de ellos portaban
banderas en esa marcha"
Los juristas vieron tres peliculas
cinematogrificas sobre la march de
los estudiantes panamefios a la Es-
cuela Secundaria de Balboa y la de-
senfrenada violencia que la sigui6.
Los representantes de los Estados
Unidos aportaron unas 150 fotogra-
fias y ddcenas de documents. Esta-
dos Unidos tambien present una
cinta magnetof6nica en la cual una
emisora de radio de PanamA instaba
apasionadamente al pueblo a con-
tinuar amotinado. Los representan-
tes de PanamA tambien presentaron
numerosas fotografias, documenta-
ci6n y material impreso.
Veinticinco testigos declararon, 15
por Panama, y 10 por los Estados
Unidos. Los expedientes se tomaron
en una forma menos formal que
aquellos tomados generalmente en
los tribunales.
Los abogados norteamericanos,
recogiendo pruebas, entrevistaron a
cientos de miembros del personal
military implicado y numerosos poli-
cias de la Zona del Canal que esta-
ban de servicio durante los tumultos.
La comisi6n ha publicado nueve
informes principles: sobre Hungria
(3), Tibet, SurAfrica, Liberia, Tinez,
el Muro de Berlin y Cuba. Todos
son models en su especie.


LOCOMOTORA-GRUA JAPONESA

FUE SOMETIDA A PRUEBAS


La primera de tres grias de loco-
motora ordenadas al Jap6n para el
uso de las esclusas del Canal de
PanamA, estaba probAndose en una
via f6rrea especial colocada en
Gat6n para probar las nuevas loco-
motoras de remolque o "mulas."
La gr6a lleg6 a principios de este
mes a bordo del SS Pioneer Mill y
fue descargada en el muro oriental
de las Esclusas de Gat6n. Inmedia-
tamente despues se procedi6 al
montage de la gr6a.
La nueva gr6a puede ser operada
en el mismo tipo de via que usan
las nuevas "mulas" y, cuando este
colocada para usarse, estarA perma-
nentemente en el muro central de
las Esclusas de Cat6n.
Despues que terminen con 6xito


las pruebas aludidas, se procedera
a la construcci6n de otras dos gruas
similares para ser usadas en las Es-
clusas de Miraflores y Pedro Miguel.
Estas deberAn ser entregadas en
enero y agosto de 1965.
Las tres gr6as de locomotora son
parte de una orden para 59 loco-
motoras de remolque que estAn
siendo construidas para el Canal de
PanamA por la Mitsubishi Shoji
Kaisha, Ltd. Las primeras de su tipo
en ser compradas por el Canal, las
grias serAn usadas para el tra-
bajo de mantenimiento, limpieza y
reacondicionamiento en las esclusas.
Se anunci6 mientras tanto que tres
"mulas" mAs deben Ilegar del Jap6n
la pr6xima semana. Actualmente hay

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


CON MITSUNORI SEKI PELEARIA LAGUNA EN MAYO
Y'. El pr6ximo rival del sensacional pugilista colonense Ismael Laguna puede ser el
Sjapones Mitsunori Seki, seguin gestiones que adelanta el empresario Jorge E. Panay en
'. uni6n del conocido hombre de negocios Carlos Eleta AlmarAn.
.' 'Seki fue el filtimo rival del campe6n mundial de peso pluma Ultiminio "Sugar"
*. Ramos en Tokio, en un encuentro en el cual Ramos triunf6 por nocaut t6cnico conser-
vando su corona.
La traida de Seki al Istmo costarA unos $7,000 seguin las informaciones dadas a un
redactor del SPILLWAY por el empresario Panay.
La pelea, de celebrarse, tendria lugar en el Estadio Olimpico de la ciudad de
PanamA en el mes de mayo pr6ximo.


Emmette Bryant, actualmente el mayor anotador del quintet Blue Demons
de la Universidad de De Paul, con un promedio de 18.3 puntos por juego,
aparece colocAndose un artefacto de cuero en su lesionado tobillo izquierdo
antes de entrar en acci6n en el Torneo Nacional por Invitaci6n que se
S celebra en el Madison Square Garden de Nueva York. Bryant, que jug6
en Panama con el equipo Marlboro de la Liga Provincial de Baloncesto de
Panama, en la temporada de 1959, estableci6 entonces dos marcas que
a6n no han sido superadas, la de 58 puntos anotados en un solo partido y
de 345 puntos con los cuales gan6 el campeonato de anotaci6n.



Patino Demostrara el Domingo 29

Que el es miuy Gallo para Beto
El campe6n peso gallo del Istmo, Luis Patifio, defender su corona el
domingo 29 de este mes en el Gimnasio Nacional, cuando se mida con el
recio fajador local Camilo Valdespino (Camy Beto) en combat a 12 asaltos
en el Gimnasio Nacional de la ciudad de Panama.
Patifio conquist6 el titulo national el domingo 19 de septiembre al veneer
por decision dividida precisamente a Beto, cuando la corona estaba vacant
y ambos habian Ilegado a las finales despues de una series de eliminaciones
ordenadas por la Comisi6n de Boxeo de PanamA. El titulo habia quedado
vacant al dejarlo Ismael Laguna por no poder hacer el peso mAximo de
la division, 118 libras.
El campe6n gallo estarA no solo defendiendo su corona, sino tambi6n
el derecho de participar en el Campeonato Latinoamericano de la division,
que tendra lugar en mayo pr6ximo en Montevideo, Uruguay, para selec-
cionar al future rival del campe6n mundial de la division, el brasilefio
Eder Jofre.
La pelea anterior entire Patifio y Beto result sensational, sufriendo
Patifio la Anica caida del encuentro en el und6cimo asalto, pero reppni6n-
* dose y poniendo en malas condiciones a Beto en el mismo asalto.



SE LE AMARGA LA VIDA A SUGAR

ANTE EL ESPECTRO DE I. LAGUNA


Tal como vaticinara el SPILLWAY
en su edici6n del 22 de noviembre
pasado, a raiz del triunfo dcl trom-
padachin panamefio sobre el nige-
riano Rafiu King, el titular del peso
pluma, Ultiminio Ramos, ultimada-
mente (como dicen en M6xico), se
vale de todos los medios para evadir
tropezarse con Ismael Laguna dentro
de las cuerdas del ring.
Ramos no quiere saber de nada
que huela a Laguna y se le estanca
el coraz6n cada vez que oye hablar
del colonense. Se diria, en verdad,
que Laguna le esti amargando el
az6car a Sugar Ramos.
En pos de "paquetes," el cubiche


viaja desesperadamente de un extre-
mo al otro del mapa, buscando
d6nde ponerse a salvo de que se le
humedczcan sus lauros en una
Laguna.
En este caso hasta pierde vigencia
el dicho popular de "por plata baila
el mono" pues ni las jugosas ofertas
que se le ban hecho a Ramos logran
sobreponerse a su timidez hasta el
moment de escribir nosotros estas
lines.
Ojal el lejano susurro del bille-
taje logre seducir al campe6n al
punto de arriesgarse a perder su
corona en Panama.


En Ecuador Darat

La Revancha a

Ernesto Miranda

La nueva sensaci6n del pugilismo
panamefio, el peso mosca Eugenio
Hurtado, hara su primera salida al
exterior del pais cuando viaje a
Guayaquil, Ecuador, para enfren-
tarsc al argentino Ernesto Miranda
el pr6ximo 10 de abril.
Ilurtado, que el domingo 61timo
derrot6 al argentino Pascual P6rez,
conceder, el desquite a Miranda,
actualmente segundo retador a la
corona mundial del peso mosca, a
quien venci6 por puntos en Panama
recientemente.


iA PUNO SE ABRE PASO HURTADO

DENTRO DE LA CLASIFICACION!


Eugenio Hurtado, uno de los prin-
cipales contendores al titulo national
del peso mosca, sera recomendado
para ser incluido en las clasificacio-
nes mundiales de la Asociaci6n Mun-
dial de Boxco despues de su triunfo
del domingo por la noche sobre el
ex campe6n mundial de la division,
el argentino Pascual Pdrez, quien
abandon el combat al finalizar el
quinto asalto del encuentro progra-
mado a 10 vueltas que se celebr6
en el Gimnasio Nacional.
El Dr. Elias M. C6rdova Jr., Pre-
sidente de la Comisi6n de Boxeo de
Panama v miembro del Comit6 de


Clasificaciones de la AMB declar6
esa noche que recomendaria a Hur-
tado para un puesto en las clasifica-
ciones, ya que habia demostrado
merecimientos para ello con sus
triunfos sobre el argentino Ernesto
Miranda, primer retador a la corona
mundial del peso mosca, y luego
sobre P6rez.
En su corta, pero brillante carrera
professional, Hurtado solamente ha
perdido un encuentro, y ha sido
frente al campe6n panameio del
peso mosca, Pedro Carvajal, quien
se encuentra actualmente haciendo
campafia boxistica en M6xico.


Gano Titulo de Softbol Femenino del


Pacifico la Novena Baby Alemin Jr.


La novena Alfredo Ale-
man Jr., conquist6 el cam-
peonato de la Liga de Soft-
ball Femenina del Pacifico,
al imponerse el jueves pasado
al Coca-Cola con anotaci6n
de 6 carreras por 5 en el
campo de juegos de Santa
Cruz.


El domingo el AlemAn Jr.,
que dirige Jos6 French, se.
impuso al Abernathy por 15
carreras a 2, para terminar la
campafia con una marca de 11
victorias contra una sola de-
rrota. Ese mismo dia el Cen-
tro Deportivo, de Pedro Mi-
guel, derrot6 al Atlas por 8


a 7. Ambos desafios se cele-
braron en Pedro Miguel.
El Gobernador Robert J.
Fleming, Jr., y su esposa
Eleanor Fleming, estuvieron
entire los entusiastas espec-
tadores que presenciaron el
desaffo del jueves.


La novena Alfredo Aleman Jr. fue la ganadora del campeonato de la Liga de Softball Femenina del Pacifico
que finaliz6 el domingo. Al centro aparece el patrocinador del equipo, Alfredo Aleman Jr., mientras que al extre-
mo izquierdo esta el Ing. Roberto L6pez FAbrega y al extreme derecho el anotador de la liga, James Dyar. No
aparece en la fotograffa el Profesor Jose French, director de las campeonas.


EL EX-BOCON CASSIUS X-MARCELLUS CLAY VENDRIA AL ISTMO

Se estin haciendo las gestiones para presentar en PanamA en una exhibici6n al nuevo campe6n mundial de boxeo de los pesos completes, Cassius
X. Clay, seg6n inform el empresario Alfredo P6rez M. el domingo por la noche.
P6rez ha estado en comunicaci6n con Angelo Dundee, de Miami, uno de los representantes del "Poeta" de Louisville, que asombr6 al mundo boxistico
al arrebatar la corona de todos los pesos a Sonny Liston en Miami Beach.
De acuerdo con P6rez, el campe6n mundial llegaria al Istmo el mismo dia de su presentaci6n, la cual tendria lugar en el Estadio Olimpico de la ciudad
de PanamA. Ese mismo dia seria presentado un gran program de boxeo professional, teniendo como base al peso pluma chiricano Carlos Rios y al campe6n
venezolano de la division en un combat a 10 asaltos.
Se ignora todavia si la exhibici6n del campe6n Clay seri inicamente boxistica o si tambi6n demostrara sus dotes de "orador."

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Interesante aspect del certamen de graduaci6n de los nifiitos de edad pre-escolar de Paraiso. Observese que
los chicos de kindergarten lucen orgullosos sus "Cap and gown," mientras aplauden al trio que baila el
tamborito panameiio.


Cupula Artica Para Control de


Transito Aereo por el Radar


La nueva cupula de la "Torre
Artica" sobre uno de los cerros cerca
de Gamboa represent el comienzo
de un vasto control a6reo que legarA
y partira de los campos de aviaci6n
en el Istmo de PanamA.
Esta facilidad, que debe iniciar
operaciones en el otoiio, tendrA un
equipo de radar de largo alcance
que "pintara" un retrato detallado
del trafico a6reo en un circulo de
360 grades alcanzando muchas millas
fuera de la cupula. Este detalle de
vuelos seri retransmitido a las con-
solas del centro de control de tr6fico
de la Agencia Federal de Aviaci6n
en Anc6n.
John Cofer, jefe del centro, infor-
ma que cuando el equipo est6 en ope-
raci6n y el detalle sea disponible
para los bien entrenados controlado-


res, proporcionarA un curso de vuelo
mas precise, asegurando mayores
grades de seguridad de vuelo y un
control mAs ordenado del trafico
aereo en el sector.
Una construcci6n adicional ade-
lanta en France Field y en la Isla
de Taboga. Una torre de 300 pies
que se levanta ahora en France Field
radiara seiiales de navegaci6n de
largo alcance en la banda de radio
de baja frecuencia que guiarA a los
piloos al Istmo desde distancias de
300 a 400 millas.
A mis de ello una ayuda a la nave-
gaci6n de alta frecuencia estA siendo
instalada en France Field para servir
de guia a los pilots hasta una dis-
tancia de como 150 millas. Equipo
similar de alta y baja frecuencia estA
siendo instalado en Taboga.


A pruebas finales fue sometida en el Jap6n esta locomotora-gr6a de 14
toneladas de capacidad, antes de ser embarcada hacia el Canal de PanamA,
para el cual fue especialmente construida en los talleres de la Mitsubishi
Shoji Kaisha. La via f6rrea inclinada donde se realizan las pruebas es
la misma en que se prueban las "mulas" de remolque de las esclusas.
La grsa que aqui aparece arrib6 al Canal a principios del mes.
