PANAMA CONTRACTORS INVITED TO BID ON ALL PROJECTS



$6,500,000 IN NEW CONSTRUCTION PLANNED



BY PANAMA CANAL FOR FISCAL YEAR 1965


Colonel Robert J. Kamish, retiring chairman of the Canal Zone Cancer Committee, was presented a certificate by
Governor Fleming for his "faithful and loyal service."



Draft Increase to 38.5 Feet


Means a Bonus for Big Ships


Deep-draft, wide-beamed ships
are getting another bonus from the
Panama Canal.
The cargo carrying potentialities of
the big super cargo ships is being
increased by about a thousands tons
by an increase in the permissible
tropical fresh water draft to 38.5 feet,
the highest in Canal history.
Capt. Mortimer J. Prince, Panama
Canal Marine Director, has advised
that qualified ships of this draft are
being permitted to transit now that
the rains have brought the level of
Gatun Lake to more than 86 feet.
The first ship to transit under the
new draft allowance was the bulk
carrier Nini which arrived in Balboa
July 20 from Peru with a cargo of
iron ore. The Nini, a 746-foot giant
with a 100.6-foot beam is a regular
Panama Canal customer which carries
U.S. coal to Japan and Peruvian iron
ore to Baltimore.
Until now, the maximum draft
allowed for the big ships using the
Canal during the rainy season when
the lake level is high, was 38 feet
tropical fresh water. This was 1l% feet
more than would have been allowed
in 1956 and 6 inches more than was
set in 1963 during the months that
Gatun Lake reached its normal level
of 86 or more feet.
The draft allowance of 38 feet
tropical fresh water was established
in 1963 following a series of Canal
improvements and experimental tran-
sits of larger ships with drafts
of more than 37 feet.
Several factors contributed to the
success of the experimental transit
of deeper draft ships. One of the


most important was the development
of a method of ejecting deeply laden
vessels from the lower chambers of
certain of the Panama Canal locks.
Other factors were the alterations
made to the lock machinery openings
which permitted the increase of the
level of Miraflores Lake by 6 inches,
the removal of material from the
batters at the south end of Pedro


1964 Worldwide

Bridge Tourney

Begins July 30

The 1964 Department of State-
USIA Worldwide Bridge Tourna-
ment will begin Thursday, July 30, at
7:30 p.m. in the Fort Clayton
Service Club.
This is the first year the tourna-
ment, which is cosponsored by the
USARSO and USAFSO Special Serv-
ices, is officially open to Panama
Canal employees, as well as U.S.
military personnel and civilian em-
ployees of the military departments.
Members of the families of those
eligible are also invited to enter the
competition.
Entry forms may be secured at any
military service club and must be
returned together with an entry fee
of 51.50 per person no later than
July 24, 1964. Checks may be made
payable to the State-USIA Recreation
Association.
For further information, contact
Mrs. Britta Dunn, Tournament Di-
rector, at Albrook 7218.


Miguel Locks, extensive maintenance
dredging and the operation of the
new gas turbine auxiliary power
generators which helped to conserve
water in Gatun Lake.
Any increase in the permissible
draft of the big ships using the Canal
means an increase in cargo carrying
capacity to the tune of from 150 to
180 tons an inch. The increase adds
nothing to the tolls the ship pays.
Since draft limitations rise in direct
relation to the height of Gatun Lake,
the maximum draft of heavy laden
super cargo ships may be restricted
during the dry season months to 37
or even 36 feet.
During the past dry season, limita-
tions on the maximum draft were
imposed only between March 10 and
July 2 when the level of the lake had
dropped well below the high of 87.07
feet reported November 24 when the
dry season began. The low point was
83.73 feet by April 23 when the
rainy season began.

Please Don't

Get a Bang Out

Of This Story

"Similar to an exploding grenade,"
was the term used in a recent Army
warning on the hazards of mishand-
ing pressurized aerosol containers.
Recently, the warning continued,
there has been an increased number
of accidents from the misuse of the
containers. These containers, when
exploding, hurl metal or glass frag-
ments over great distances.
During insurance company tests,
full cans were tossed into a bonfire.
Several ruptured instantly and shot
like rockets for 300 feet. A pickup
truck, 150 feet from the blaze, re-
ceived two direct hits, both of which
pierced the tailgate.
Over a billion units were used last
year. These units were made of glass,
plastic-lined glass, or metal and
contained many of the substances
used daily in the home (paints,
cleaning agents, insecticides, shaving
cream, whipped cream, hair spray,
etc. ).
Since these items are found in
every home and barracks, the Army
has urged that the following pre-
cautions be followed:
^ Do not puncture the can, as
internal pressure can result in serious
harm.
Do not throw a discarded can


to an incinerator or open fire, as the
remaining gases or solvent may
explode.
,' Read all warning messages on
the container to determine if the mix-
ture is inflammable.
h Do not store in sunlight or in
temperatures over 100' F. as in some
types of aerosols the internal pressure
will rise to dangerous levels and
might explode.
Use in a well ventilated area, as
prolonged inhalation may be harmful.
,' Keep aerosol containers away
from children.


The acceptance of the reply is
directly proportional to the thickness
of the correspondence package.

SOROPTIMIST

INSTALLATION
Installation of officers of the
Soroptimist Club of Colon was held
at the Fort Davis Officers' Club
recently. Dr. Evelyn Barraza of the
E.E.N.T. Service, Coco Solo Hos-
pital, was installed as the new pres-
ident replacing outgoing president,
Louise Griffon, secretary to the
Superintendent of Coco Solo Hos-
pital. Other officers installed were:
Mercedes Ferro, vice president;
Frances May, corresponding secre-
tary: Elena Ambrose, recording sec-
retary; Mercedes Maurer, treasurer;
Louise Griffon, board member; Co-
lombia Luque, board member; Hilda
Baas, alternate. The installing officer
was Mrs. Ruth Morris, teacher in the
Canal Zone schools.


with other users of the generators.
The answer: "We don't need the
wood bases."
lie then submitted this suggestion:
"Eliminate the wood bases in specifi-
cation for XYZ generators. They no
longer serve any useful purpose."
Study proved him right, and wood
bases costing only $15 each were
eliminated from a purchase order for
16,750 generator sets. Total savings:
$251,205.
Obviously, everybody cannot come
up with a quarter-of-a-million-dollar
idea, but everyone can contribute in
his own way and within his own
capabilities to reducing Government
costs. How?
1. By challenging each operating
practice with which you are familiar.
Is the entire process necessary? Can
it be cut off at the roots? Can it be
streamlined?
2. By ferreting out waste where-
ever you find it. What is being done


wrong that causes waste of man-
"power, of supplies and materials, of
machinery and equipment, of space?
How can such waste be avoided?
3. By detecting duplication of
tasks. Can similar tasks being per-
formed here or elsewhere be elim-
inated or combined?
In short, look for opportunities for
reducing costs in the operations you
observe around you-where you are
the expert. Don't be reluctant to
propose a savings of only $100. If
one-half of the Federal work force
can propose a good solid adoptable
idea for saving $100, the total would
be over $100 million.
We are always glad, of course, to
get a quarter-million-dollar idea-if
you have one. But we're mighty
happy about the small "daily bread"
type of suggestion that results in
practical, down-to-earth cash savings.


Scout Camping

Sessions Over

In Canal Zone
Another summer of camping fun
for Canal Zone Boy Scouts has been
completed and the equipment stored
awav until next year.
One hundred and ninety-three
scouts-approximately 75 percent of
the registered scouts present in the
Canal Zone-attended the 1964
camps. Supervising the program were
27 volunteer leaders and 25 staff
members.
One night during each of the two
camp sessions was set aside for
visitors, and 198 parents and friends
of scouting came to the camp and
watched the scouts in action.
Many advancements were earned
this year. In addition to the First
and Second Class tests which were
passed, instruction and subsequent
testing on 14 merit badges earned
the scouts a total of 204 merit badges,
6 Scout lifeguard awards, and 70
1-mile swim awards.
In the Second Class test, which
has 11 requirements, 111 were
executed while in the First Class test
with its 10 requirements 108 require-
ments were completed.
These awards will be presented at
September Courts of Honor.
Scouts who are newly arrived in
the Zone who are interested in con-
tinuing their activities should con-
tact W. Y. Compton, Scout Executive,

Tonight's Big Noise in Balboa



Is By Folks Who "Give a Hoot"


People will bang their feet on the
floor and scream at Balboa Theater
tonight at 7 o'clock in a weird Amer-
ican ritual called a "Hootnany."
The performers, who admit to
lunacy, will encourage the audience
to join in the screaming and stomp-
ing at this "Hootnany Musical" where
dancing and singing will be provided
by an indescribable combination of
musicians.
A "Hootnany," correctly spelled
H-o-o-t-e-n-a-n-n-y but in this case
slightly off in keeping with the per-
formers zany style, is a peculiar
American innovation. People who
like to sing agonizing songs to make
other people happy, who like to
sing brand-new songs about the good
old days and who like to sing simple,
next-to-the-heart type songs, get
together and do it. Other people
come and listen.
Not unlike tribal devotees, they
swav in their seats and hum. The
singers lift their heads to the sky and
sometimes wave their arms, stomp,
and make other motions. People yell.
Then, in near-reverent respect to a
song about some scoundrel who is to
be hanged, and deserves no less, they
fall into grave silence.

There are other sophisticated man-

The air is rent with the sound of the
well-plucked guitar and the fallen
hero. In the jubilant moments, every-
one sings loudly, if not so well, and
the audience is swept along into a
din that is magnificent to the ears of
the genuine folk music buff.
In the spotlight tonight are the
Lancers, Frank Pretto and his con-

called Los Cuatro Locos for the sake
of a program listing.
The Lancers have pierced the
tough hide of fame with an LP
record of original numbers. They are

by lead guitarist Bob Taylor. Ralph
Smith and Ed Idol can't be beat as

Surveys reveal that 10 out of 10
persons enjoy this sort of frivolity.
Those with hair to let down quite
often do. Those with whom nature
has dealt cruelly may wear a Beatle
wig and let it down. There is no
appreciable difference in the feeling
of unbounded joy.
For a dose of musical ecstasy in
fast tempo, this homegrown show
promises an evening of good cheer

He Retires After


45 Years, and 117


Canal Transits
Capt. Albert Hocken, Commo-
dore of the combined fleets of the
New Zealand Shipping Co. and
Federal Steam Navigation Co., is
retiring after completing his 117th
transit of the Panama Canal.
On July 21, the Commodore, who
joined the New Zealand Shipping Co.
in 1919 as a cadet aboard the old
Devon, completed his last transit
aboard the Ruahine, the ship he pre-
sently commands.
Commodore Hocken completed his
apprenticeship aboard the cadet ship,
Essex, and after gaining his second
mate's certificate, joined the Armagh
as fourth officer in October 1923. He
was serving aboard the Armagh when
she was grounded in the Mersey and
broke in two.
In 1937, Hocken was promoted to
chief officer and served in this
capacity aboard various ships. Since
1942 he has been in command of
several ships including one of the first
Sam ships, the Samkey.
At the height of the U-boat cam-
paign of WW II, Captain Hocken
was in command of the Tekoa, part
of a North Atlantic convoy of which
12 ships were sunk. The Tekoa,
although in danger of attack, stood
by for 4 hours to pick up 146 sur-
vivors from 2 ships sunk nearby.
Since the war, the captain has
commanded the Otaki and various
cadet training ships before receiving
his present and last command, the
Ruahine.


JUNE RAINFALL

ABOVE NORMAL
Rainfall in the Canal Zone during
June was above normal except over
the Pacific side. The overall average
for nine stations reporting was 13.73
inches, 2.74 inches above normal,
according to the monthly report of
the Meteorological and Hydrographic
Branch.
The average air temperature of
79.6 degrees was 0.8 degrees below
normal and the average relative
humidity of 86.8 percent was 0.3
percent above normal. The highest
temperature of 93 degrees was
recorded at Gatun on the 12th and
the lowest of 68 degrees at Madden
Dam on the 16th.
Average sea water temperature at
Balboa docks of 82.2 degrees was
0.3 degrees below normal and varied
from a minimum of 80 degrees to a
maximum of 85 degrees.
Prevailing surface winds varied
between north and south, the report
said, and velocities were slightly
below normal at all stations.
The total runoff from Catun Lake
Basin of 584,345 acre-feet was 54
percent above normal and was the
third highest June runoff since 1914.
Accumulated total runoff from Gatun
Lake Basin since the first of the year
amounted to 1,209,137 acre-feet
which is 5 percent above the 51-year
average.
There were 30 earthquake disturb-
ances recorded on the Balboa Heights
seismographs during June, the report
said. Nine were within 300 miles of
the station but none were of sufficient
intensity to be felt locally.


Panama Items Shown

Items from Panama and other
Central American countries were dis-
played recently in the Pioneer
Museum in Boulder, Colo.
Mrs. Thomas B. Newbury arranged
the display from articles collected by
her on a motor trip to the Canal in
the summer of 1963.
Representing Panama in the show-
case were handmade appliques by
the San Bias Indians.

Vol. III, No. 5 50 Ahos de Servicios . Para el Comercio Mundial Viernes 24 de Julio de 1964


INVITADOS CONTRATISTAS PANAMENOS A SOMETER OFERTAS



EL PANCANAL INVERTIRA $6,500,000 EN 1965



EN NUEVAS OBRAS PARA EL EJERCICIO FISCAL


Contratistas panamefios tendrnn
oportunidad de someter propuestas
sobre contratos avaluados en mais de
$6,500,000 que serin abiertos a lici-
taci6n por la organizaci6n del Canal
de PanamA para el afio fiscal 1965;
se trata de nuevas edificaciones y
proyectos de ingenieria.
Las obras contempladas entrafian
contratos que fluctian desde various
miles de d6lares a mAs de $500,000.
El contrato mas valioso lo sera la
instalaci6n del sistema de aire acon-
dicionado en la Escuela Intermedia
y Secundaria de Crist6bal en Coco
Solo.
Entre otros proyectos para el afio
fiscal figuran una cafeteria para la
Escuela Secundaria de Balboa, mejo-
ras al Hospital de Coco Solo y una
piscina para Margarita.


Centavo a Centavo

Se Hacen Millones
Algunas veces los empleados no
entregan sus sugestiones para redu-
cir los gastos porque "los ahorros son
insignificantes."
En algunos casos estos ahorros
modestos pueden significar impor-
tantes reducciones en los costs. Les
ofrecemos un ejemplo donde se prest6
la atenci6n debida a un articulo de
poco costo que produjo una sugesti6n
de gran reducci6n en el costo:
Las especificaciones pedian ciertos
generadores que serian montados en
bases especiales de madera. "jPor
qu las bases de madera?" pregunt6
un empleado consciente de los costs,
quien rehus6 seguir atado a la cos-
tumbre y la tradici6n. Comprob6 con
otros que manipulaban generadores.
La respuesta fue: "No necesitamos
bases de madera."
Entonces entreg6 su sugesti6n:
"Eliminar las bases de madera en la
especificaci6n para los generadores
XYZ. Ya no son tiless"
Los studios probaron que estaba
en lo correct, y las bases de madera
que costaban solamente $15 cada
una fueron eliminadas de la orden
de compra para 16,750 generadores.
El total de ahorros: $251,205.


Tres proyectos por un total aproxi-
mado de un mill6n de d6lares se
pondrin a licitaci6n en conexi6n con
la construcci6n de la Escuela Inter-
media de Curundi. Estos incluyen la
construcci6n de la cafeteria, los bafios
y las graderias; la instalaci6n de pisos
y equipo de laboratories, talleres,
biblioteca y gimnasio para el nuevo
plantel.
Se han solicitado propuestas para
la instalaci6n del aire acondicionado
e instalaciones el4ctricas en los edi-
ficios escolares; los pliegos serin
abicrtos a fines de julio o principios
de agosto.
Entre los proyectos de como
$250,000 o mAs para el present ejer-
cicio fiscal, figuran la instalaci6n de
aire acondicionado en la Escuela Se-


cundaria de Paraiso; instalaciones de plant de Balboa y pintura en algunos

Durante el aiio fiscal de 1964
se realizaron obras por mAs de
$7,500,000 en contratos adjudica-
dos por la organizaci6n del Canal
principalmente a firmas locales.
Gran proporci6n de los fondos
dedicados a construcciones fueron
a dar a la firma de Diaz & Guardia,
que construy6 viviendas para em-
pleados en Pedro Miguel por valor
de casi un mill6n de d6lares; 12 aulas
por valor de $256,000 en la Escuela
Secundaria de Balboa y los edificios

AUMENTO DEL CALADO A 38.5 PIES



ENTRANA GANANCIA PARA ARMADORES


Tanto las naves de alto calado
cuanto las de ancha manga se bene-
ficiarAn con recientes medidas adop-
tadas por el Canal de Panama. Los
supercargueros se benefician como en
1,000 toneladas de carga potential
gracias a que el calado permisible
ha sido incrementado a 38.5 pies en
aguas frescas tropicales, el calado
mas alto permitido hasta ahora.
El Director de Marina, Capitan
Mortimer J. Prince, dispuso que
naves de esas condiciones scan admi-
tidas ahora que las luvias han cle-
vado a mAs de 86 pies el nivel del
Lago Gatfn, nivel que sera mante-
nido sin dificultad durante la Apoca
lluviosa.
El primer barco en valerse de
esto lo fue el carguero Nini, que
arrib6 el 20 de julio a Balboa proce-
dente del Peri. Esa nave de 746
pies de eslora y 100.6 de manga
transport mineral del Peri a Balti-
more y vuelve con carbon de Estados
Unidos para el Jap6n.


Hasta alora solo se habia dado
admisi6n a supercargueros do hasta
38 pies de calado en agua fresca
tropical y eso durante la estaci6n
lluviosa. Ello representaba pie y me-
dio mas de lo permisible en 1956 y
1 pie mas que en 1963, cuando el
Lago GatUn alcanzaba un nivel de
86 pies o mas.
El calado de 38 pies en aguas
tropicales se estableci6 en 1963, des-
pues de una series de mejoras en el
Canal y de pruebas con barcos de
mas de 37 pies de calado.
Entre los factors que han hecho
possible el alza en el calado permi-
sible figure el novedoso sistema de
expeler a las naves muy cargadas
de las esclusas inferiores del Canal
con el Ilamado impetu hidrAulico.
Otros factors importantes fueron
las alteraciones hechas en las mAqui-
nas de las esclusas que permiten ele-
var en 6 pulgadas el nivel del Lago
Miraflores; el sostenido dragado y


los nuevos generadores de turbines
de gas que contribuyen a ahorrar
aguas del Lago Catu'n.
Todo aumento en el calado per-
misible conlleva otro en la poten-
cialidad de carga que puede trans-
portar una nave, calculAndose ello
en 150 a 180 toneladas por pulgada.
Ese beneficio adicional no acarrea
ninglin aumento en el peaje.
Como las limitaciones en el calado
dependent del nivel del Lago Gatun,
en la estaci6n scca tienen que redu-
cirse a 37 y atin a 36 pies. Durante
la temporada pasada la restricci6n
en el calado se implant ilnicamente
del 10 de marzo al 2 de julio. El nivel
mAs bajo lleg6 a 83.73 pies el 23
de abril.
Todavia hay 326 barcos de alto
bordo que no pueden transitar el
Canal con su carga total y otros
80 que exceden la manga mAxima
permisible de 107 pies.


ESTA NOCHE EL ACABOSE



Esta noche a las 7 sera el disloque en el Teatro de Balboa cuando se
celebre el extraflo ritual contemporAneo conocido como "Hootenanny," que
consiste en que actors y piblico se unen en una griteria horrisona, con
pataleo y frenetico palmotear, todo puesto a misica.
El "Hootenanny" es una modalidad tipica de la Era en Estados Unidos.
La gente se congrega en un sitio dado y rompe a cantar que no hay quien
los pare. Las canciones son de todo tipo: plafiideras, alegres, melanc6licas,
saturadas de afioranzas, asemejandose en una sola frase: el infernal bullicio
y algarabia en que se desenvuelven.
Unos-los mAs-acuden al hootenannyy" a desgafiitarse, otros a ensor-
decer, aparentemente pues hay aue ver a que extremes se expone el
timpano en esos aquelarres musicals.
Los espectadores parecen atacados de un frenesi unAnime. Se mecen
en sus asientos, palmoteando y tarareando mientras observan a los can-
tantes en el scenario, dando saltos como cabras y elevando los brazos al
firmamento como en una imprecaci6n estent6rea. La gente grita. De s6bito,
se sume en el silencio, como para meditar sobre la suerte de un perdona-
vidas cualquiera cuyas hazafias celebra la estrofa del moment. Las tripas
de las guitarras suenan como si ain estuviesen adheridas al gato al que
oertenecieron.
Vuelven a levantarse todas las voces atronadoras, apabullantes ....
La cosa es chillar y escandalizar . y divertirse de lo lindo!
OcuparAn el puesto estelar esta noche Los Lanceros, Frank Pretto y su
conjunto y Los Cuatro Locos, grupo que juran y perjuran que son un
arrebato. Lo que puede durarle.
Encabezan el program el guitarrista Bob Taylor, y con 61 Ralph Smith,
Ed Idol y Buddy Morgan. (Ya rayaron un disco LP con sus originalidades
simpAticas.)
Frank Pretto estarf al 6rgano Hammond y Billy Foster golpeara el tambor,
asi como Smith e Idol.
Digase lo que se dijere: quien haya acudido a un hootenannyy" no lo
olvidara jams . y se divertiri toneladas . !

Nueva Area Para

Estacionamiento

Un sitio de estacionamiento para
31 vehiculos estA siendo acondicio-
nado en las inmediaciones del Hos-
pital Gorgas. El nuevo sitio quedara
a traves de la calle, frente al anexo
del hospital y de la clinic dental
de Anc6n. EstarA terminado dentro
de unas 2 semanas.
Hasta tanto quede terminado el

ailo venidero, el Area de estaciona-
miento podrA ser utilizada por pa-
cientes y visitantes que acuden al
Hospital Gorgas.
Cuando se inaugure el anexo, el
sitio de estacionamiento quedarA re-
servado para el uso exclusive del
personal del hospital y pacientes
que acudan a la clinic dental. Para
ese tiempo la mayor parte del Area
de estacionamiento dentro del peri-
metro del hospital y que colinda con
los pabellones actuales, serA desti-
nada a los vehiculos de los pacientes.


CUIDADITO CON ESOS

ROCIADORES AEROSOL

"Igual a una granada" fue la defi-
nici6n ofrecida en reciente adverten-
cia del Ej6rcito sobre los peligros del
manejo descuidado de los rociadores
de aerosol, que ya han sido causa
de algunos accidents.
Los rociadores-cuando estallan-
lanzan fragments de metal o de
vidrio (segin el caso) con gran vio-
lencia y a distancia considerable.
En pruebas realizadas por empre-
sas aseguradoras, se echaron rocia-
dores al fuego. Varios estallaron in-
mediatamente, lanzando fragments
a 300 pies de distancia en todas las
direcciones. Una camioneta que
estaba a 150 pies fue perforada por
dos fragments que atravesaron la
carroceria de metal.
El afio pasado se emplearon mis
de mil millones de rociadores, algunos
hechos de vidrio, otros de plAsticos,
o de metal. Los rociadores contienen
de todo: pinturas, detergentes, insec-
ticidas, espuma para afeitarse, crema
batida, t6nico para el cabello, etc.
En vista del creciente uso domds-
tico dado a esos rociadores, el Ejer-
cito ha expedido las siguientes medi-
das de precauci6n:
No perform la lata rociadora ya
que la elevada presi6n internal pre-
senta serio peligro.
No eche el rociador vacio al
fuego ni al incinerador ya que el re-
manente de gases puede explotar.
Lea las insrucciones que lleva
el envase para saber si el contenido
es inflamable.
b No lo almacene bajo luz solar
o a temperatures en exceso de los 100
grades Fahrenheit, ya que en algunos
tipos de aerosol la presi6n internal
puede elevarse al punto de estallar.
I Utilicese en area bien ventilada,
ya que las emanaciones podrian ser
nocivas.


Los alumnos de los grades 11 y 12 de la Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso, reciben instrucciones de
nataci6n todos los lunes, miercoles y viernes en la Piscina del plantel. Este es un grupo de esos
alumnos, a los cuales imparte sus instrucciones el professor de educaci6n fisica David Salamin.
