PARKING EXPANSION READIED

NEAR ADDITION TO GORGAS


In an immediate effort to relieve
the extreme parking problem existing
in the Gorgas Hospital area, a 31-
space parking area is now under con-
struction and will be finished in
approximately 2 weeks. It will be
located across the street from the
new Gorgas annex and the Ancon
Dental Clinic.
Until the new annex is opened
early next year, the area will be used
by patients and visitors.
When the new annex is completed,
approximately 90 additional parking
spaces will become available. At that
time the new 31-car lot will be re-
designated for staff parking and
dental clinic patients.
In addition, when the new annex
opens the majority of the reserved
parking spaces now inside the hos-


pital area alongside the existing
buildings will be converted to patient
parking.

Governor Fleming.
Mr. Ignatius, who assumed the
post on February 24, succeeds
Stephen Ailes, who was appointed
by the President as Secretary of
the Army.


15 IN EXPANDED PROGRAM

ARE PANAMANIAN WORKERS


Eighteen Panama Canal appren-
tices were graduated yesterday to
full journeyman status in a cere-
mony at the Training Center, Balboa.
They represented the first large
group taken into the apprentice pro-
gram after its scope was enlarged
in 1960 following President Eisen-
hower's directive to employ at least
25 Panamanians in apprenticeships
each year. As a result of the White
House order the number of Pana-
manians has increased notably, and
at the same time the total number
of U.S.-citizen apprentices also has
risen.
Fifteen of the graduates this year
are Panamanians, and three are
Americans. Only 13 Panamanians
were on hand for the ceremonies,
however, because 2 are presently in
Germany on scholarships to learn
vocational education methods. On
their return they will teach the
skilled crafts to their fellow-country-
men in Panama City vocational night
schools, in addition to their regular
journeyman work for the Panama
Canal.
Lieutenant Governor Parker issued
the diplomas in the presence of many
other officials. In addition to Colonel
Parker, the directors of the Per-
sonnel, Marine, Engineering and
Construction, and Transportation
and Terminals Bureaus participated.
Chiefs of six divisions from which
apprentices were graduated took
part, and industrial training commit-
teemen and others attended.
In the mayor address of the cere-
mony, Colonel Parker, noted that
although there have been Panama-
nian apprentices in the Panama
Canal program throughout most of
its 58 years, this was the largest
number to be graduated at one time.
He revealed that the number of
Panamanian apprentices now has
risen to more than 80, a record, and
that at the same time the number
of U.S.-citizen apprentices has in-

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


July 17, 1964


Mrs. Chester E. Briggs, wife of the Acting Marine Director, recently let
loose with a mighty swing with a bottle of champagne (it was really
colored water) to launch the U.S. Tarpon at Gamboa Launch Landing. The
Industrial and Dredging Divisions worked on the boat, which is 40 feet by
11 feet. It will be used to transport general cargo from the Harbormaster's
Office, Cristobal, to ships. On the inaugural voyage to Gatun were James
Hagan, Acting Harbormaster, and his wife, Mr. George Kemp, and Mr. and
Mrs. Burton Davis. Captain Briggs is at right.


Japanese Judo Expert, 80, Stops




Here While on Tour of the World


Mr. Sumiyuki Kotani, representing
the Japanese Government in connec-
tion with the International Olympic
Committee activities for the forth-
coming Olympic Games to be held
in Tokyo the end of this year, was
a recent visitor to the Isthmus.
A "Kudan" (9th degree Black
Belt) in Judo playing, Mr. Kotani is
internationally famous in Judo. At
the present time, there are four
"Kudans" in the world. This Judo
rank is far above the average, since
it is awarded mostly after the com-
petitive years (which cease at about
35 years of age). It is usually award-
ed for love of the sport and applica-
tion of its concept, and attention
to it.
Mr. Kotani is more than 80 years
old, he still plays Judo.
His visit to the Isthmus was for
coordination in connection with


Reproduction Branch to Microfilm Records


Of Engineering and Architectural Branches


Hundreds of thousands of Panama
Canal engineering and architectural
drawings ranging from plans for a
tool shed built in 1906 in Culebra
to the complete set of drawings for
the new Gorgas Hospital annex,
soon will be placed on microfilm.
The extensive 5-year project to
copy on microfilm all the engineering
drawings kept since the United States
took over construction and operation
of the Canal, will be started late in
September when a 105-millimeter
microfilm camera and enlarger is
installed.
It will be located in the basement
of the Balboa Heights Administra-
tion Building in the Reproduction
Branch of the Administrative Serv-
ices Division and operated under the
supervision of Cleveland Soper,
Chief of the Reproduction Branch.
Ernest P. Taubes, president of the
Photo Devices, Inc. of Rochester,
N.Y., manufacturer of the big micro-
film camera, came to the Canal Zone
last week to help personally with the
installation of the delicate equip-
ment.
At present, many of the architec-
tural and engineering drawings are
stored in the blueprint vault on the
third floor of the Administration
Building. Many thousands more are
located in the attic. Some are so
brittle and yellow with age that
engineers and others interested in
the old records, have been having
difficulty examining them without
destroying the paper on which they
are printed.
When "operation microfilm" is
completed, it is expected that the
drawings, reduced from an average
38 by 42 inch size to a 4 by 5

What's Wrong

With Editors?

Here's a List
(EDITORn's NOTE: This, of course,
does not apply to the SPILLWAY
Editor, who is a relatively con-
tented man. However, we thought
our readers would enjoy the article.)
We give up.
If we print jokes, people say we're
silly; if we don't our readers say
we're dull.
If we print original matter, they
say we lack variety; if we "lift"
articles from other publications, they
say we're too lazy to write.
If we stay on the job in the office,
we ought to be out hustling news.
If we're out hustling news, we're not
attending to business or answering
the phone.
If we use copy as is, we lack
education; if we change the copy,
we're spoiling a "hot" story.
If we select certain articles over
others, we're too critical; if we don't
we're asleep.
If we're seen scanning newspapers
or magazines on the job, we've got
too much manpower; if we don't
read other publications we're not up
on the news.
If we publish a pinup, the women
complain; if we don't the men
complain.
If we print more civilian news, the
military complains; if we print more
military news, the civilians complain.
If we misspell a name, the person
and his regiment of friends complain.
If we spell 99,999 names right, no
one comments.
Like as not, someone will say we
stole this item from another publica-
tion.
They're right-we did.


Judo, as a sport, has over 2 million
players worldwide. It is Mr. Kotani's
mission to interest the various coun-
tries of the world to intercede with
the International Olympic Com-
mittee to reinstate judo in all Olym-
pic Games, since there are many
more judo players over the world
than there are, for instance, yachts-
men, rowers, and participants in
several other sports.
Mr. Kutani was accompanied on
his tour by Mr. Teizo Kawamura, a
7th-dan in Judo, and assistant profes-
sor of Education at Tokyo Univer-
sity, who is assisting Mr. Kutani in
his mission.

Calendar Uses

A Subject of

Local Interest
An illustration of particular interest
to employees of the Panama Canal
organization is the panel at left in
the U.S. Army "A Heritage of Serv-
ice" 1964 calendar. It salutes the
conquest of yellow fever as the great
achievement for which Maj. Walter
Reed of the U.S. Army Medical
Corps is most remembered.
The text appearing with the illus-
tration states: "This dedicated man
and three other medical officers con-
ducted 116 experiments on the island
of Cuba in 1900 to prove that the
common mosquito was the carrier of
the deadly disease. This historic
breakthrough led to the ultimate
control of yellow fever and its banish-
ment as a major cause of death in
the world." William Crawford
Gorgas, later Colonel Gorgas of Pan-
ama Canal construction days fame,
already was on sanitation and
clean-up duties in Cuba when the
Reed Commission was appointed.
The methods and techniques
developed in Cuba were brought to
the Isthmus of Panama by Colonel
Gorgas and applied and developed
further here, transforming it from
a pestilential area into a healthful
tropical region. The'entire calendar
stresses the Army's heritage of peace-
time service, reflecting outstanding
non-military achievements by this
branch of the service and its officers
and men.
It was prepared in cooperation
with the Department of the Army
by the General Electric Missile and
Space Division at the Valley Forge
Space Technology Center in Penn-
sylvania. (Reprint rights granted are

creased to more than 45. With the
exception of one year, 1952, this is
the largest number of Americans to
have been in the program since
early in World War II.
In his address, Colonel Parker
emphasized that all craftsmen, par-
ticularly new journeymen, must not
only do today's job efficiently, but
they must also continue to learn and
to improve their skills so that they
will be able to do the more compli-
cated jobs of tomorrow. In this day
of swiftly developing new materials,
tools, and methods, all craftsmen-
and all other employees as well, must
keep growing in order to keep up,
he said.
The Lieutenant Governor paid


organization who had assisted the
apprentices in completing their
training and winning journeyman
status. He mentioned the teachers
of the apprentice school who pro-
vided the classroom training, and the
veteran, highly skilled journeymen
in the shops who coached and en-
couraged the apprentices and helped
them learn the skills of their trades.
Brief remarks also were made
by Personnel Director Edward A.
Doolan; Electrical Engineer J. Bar-
tley Smith, chairman of the Indus-
trial Training Committee; Industrial
Training Coordinator Philip T.
Green; and by Rugico Rocha, grad-
uating boilermaker apprentice with
the Industrial Division, who spoke


tribute to the many men in the for the graduating class.

CORONEL PARKER ENTREGA DIPLOMAS



EN LA GRADUACION DE 18 APRENDICES


Dieciocho aprendices del Canal de Panama se gra-
duaron ayer de jornaleros en una ceremonia levada
a cabo en el Centro de Capacitaci6n de la Direcci6n
de Personal en Balboa.
Representan el grupo mAs numeroso desde que el
program de aprendizaje fue ampliado en 1960 por
orden del Presidente Eisenhower, con el objeto de
emplear por lo menos 25 panamefios en el aprendi-
zaje cada afio. Como resultado de la orden de la Casa
Blanca el nimero de panamefios ha aumentado con-
siderablemente, y al mismo tiempo ha aumentado el
nilmero de aprendices estadounidenses.
Quince de los graduados de este afio son pana-
mefios y tres norteamericanos. Solamente 13 pana-
mefios estuvieron presents en las ceremonies, sin
embargo, debido a que dos se encuentran actual-
mente becados en Alemania para aprender los m6to-
dos de la educaci6n vocational. A su regreso ense-
fiarin a sus paisanos las habilidades del oficio en las
escuelas nocturnas vocacionales de PanamA, ademas
de un trabajo regular como jornaleros para el Canal
de Panama.
El Vicegobernador David S. Parker entreg6 los


diplomas en presencia de muchos otros funcionarios.
Ademas del Coronel Parker participaron los jefes de
las direcciones de Personal, Marina, Ingenieria y
Construcci6n, y Transportes v Terminales. Otros fun-
cionarios fueron los jefes de seis divisions de las
cuales se graduaron los aprendices, ademAs de miem-
bros del Comit6 de Adiestramiento Industrial y otros.
En el principal discurso de la ceremonia, el Coronel
Parker observe que aunque han habido aprendices
panameiios en el program del Canal de Panama
durante la mayor parte de sus 58 afios, este era el
mayor grupo que se graduaba en un afio. Revel6 que
el nimero de aprendices panameiios ha aumentado
ahora a mas de 80, lo que constitute un record, y que
al mismo tiempo el nimero de aprendices estado-
unidenses ha aumentado a mAs de 45. Con la excep-
ci6n de 1952, este es el mayor nmimero de norteameri-
canos que ha estado en el program desde principios
de la II Guerra Mundial.
En su discurso el Coronel Parker recalc6 que todos
los artesanos, particularmente los nuevos jornaleros,
no solo deben hacer el trabajo de hoy, eficientemente,
sino que tambidn deben continuar aprendiendo para


mejorar sus habilidades, para que sean capaces de
desempefiar los mas complicados trabajos del future.
En esta 6poca de rApido desarrollo de nuevos mate-
riales, herramientas y m6todos, todos los artesanos-y
todos los otros empleados, deben continuar su
desarrollo para mantenerse al mismo paso, dijo l.
El Vicegobernador rindi6 tribute a los muchos
hombres en la organizaci6n que han ayudado a los
aprendices a terminar su adiestramiento y obtener su
clasificaci6n de jornaleros. Mencion6 a los maestros
de la escuela de aprendizaje que impartieron las
classes en los salones y a los veterans jornaleros en
los talleres que entrenaron a los aprendices y los alen-
taron en el aprendizaje de sus respectivas profesiones.
Breves observaciones fueron hechas por el Direc-
tor de Personal, Edward A. Doolan; el Ingeniero
Elctrico, J. Bartley Smith, president del Comit6 de
Adiestramiento Industrial; el Coordinador de Adieg-

Si es asi, por favor, no lo haga.
A la Biblioteca-Museo de la

muchas veces es dificil de obtener

La Verdad es que

Es una Lata .
(NOTA: La cr6nica que sigue
es obvio que no es aplicable al
caso del Director del SPILLWAY
pero gustarA al lector.)
iNi modo de complacerlos a todos!
Si publicamos chistes, dicen que
somos necios; si no o hacemos, dicen
que somos aburridos.
Si aparece material original, alegan
que falta variedad; si reproducciones,
que nos consume la pereza.
Si nos quedamos en la redaccidn,
nos critical que deberiamos andar a
la saga de noticias; si salimos, afirman
que nunca pisamos la redaccion.
Si corregimos las cr6nicas que nos
envian, las hemos echado a perder;
si les damos publicidad tal cual nos
llegan, carecemos de buen criteria y
no sabemos escribir.
Si damos preferencia a una noticia
sobre otras, nuestro buen juicio
queda en tela de duda. Si revisamos
la prensa local y extranjera en la
redaccidn, somos unos vagos y ocio-
sos; si no lo hacemos, no nos entera-
mos de nada de lo que pasa afuera.
Si publicamos grdfica de chicas
atractivas, moldstanse nuestras lec-
toras; si no, son nuestros lectores
quienes se enfurecen.
Si nuestras noticias son puramente
de actos civiles, los militares se que-
jan; si damos cabida a las militares,
los civiles fruncen el cefio.
Si cometemos un error de orto-
grafia, somos ignorantes o despre-
ocupados.
Todo error nos es enrostrado acre-
mente; los aciertos pasan desatendi-
dos. De fijo que alguien dird que adn
esta crdnica la pirateamos de otra
publicacidn. (En esto iltimo tienen
razdn.)

Una ilustraci6n de interns parti-

nizaci6n del Canal de Panama, es la
limina, a la izquierda, que aparece
en el calendario de 1964 del Ejdrcito
de los EE. UU., "Tradici6n de un
Servicio." Este rinde honors a la
conquista de la fiebre amarilla como
el gran acontecimiento por el cual es
bien recordado el Mayor Walter
Reed, del Cuerpo M6dico del EjBr-
cito de los EE. UU.
El texto que aparece con la ilus-
traci6n expresa: "Este hombre con-
sagrado y otros tres funcionarios me-
dicos llevaron a cabo 116 experimen-
tos en la Isla de Cuba en 1900 para
probar que el mosquito com6n era
el transmisor de la fatal enfermedad.
Esta hist6rica acci6n culmin6 con el
control de la fiebre amarilla y su
eliminaci6n como una causa princi-
pal de muerte en el mundo." William
Crawford Gorgas, mas tarde el fa-
moso Coronel Gorgas de los dias de
la construcci6n del Canal de Pana-
mA, estaba ya en labores de sanidad
y limpieza en Cuba cuando fue
nombrada la Comisi6n Reed.
Los metodos y tecnica desarrolla-
dos en Cuba fueron traidos al Istmo
de Panama por el Coronel Gorgas y
aplicados y desarrollados en forma
mAs amplia aqui, transformando isto
de un Area pestilente a una region
tropical saludable. El calendario

Ej6rcito en su servicio en tiempos de
paz, indicando las realizaciones des-
tacadas no militares por esta rama
del servicio y sus oficiales y hombres.

La mortandad del mal llamado
sexo fuerte, despuds de los 50, per-

nivel a que llegara hace un decenio.
Esto se atribuye al lento process para
