THE PANAMA CANAL




Spillwa,


Vol. III, No. 12 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, September 11, 1964


Superior Awards Go


To All Workers In


Transportation Unit
For the first time under the Incentive Awards Program, a
Panama Canal unit won the distinction of having all its em-
ployees awarded superior service awards.
The eight employees of the Transportation Branch of the
Panama Canal were visited by Governor Fleming.
He explained that it was best for him to come to make the
awards there rather than close the shop for all the employees
to come to the ceremony in the Board Room in the Administra-
tion Building at Balboa Heights.
Those receiving certificates signed by the Governor and
checks for $150 went to George Vieto, Chief of the Transporta-
tion Section; Fred E. Wells, Beatrice E. Lee, George G. Graff-
man, Lloyd W. Peterson, Marie Herblin, Mercedes T. Palo-
meras and W. Richard Shapiro.
Earlier the same day, Mrs. Marie G. Haky of the Balboa
Retail Store and Mrs. Wilma Hyatt of the Cold Storage Ware-
house received superior service awards and checks for $150
each from Governor Fleming. A similar award was made to
Joseph L. H. Demers, Assistant Director of the Transportation
and Terminals Bureau, who is presently on leave.

The Lucky Number: Eight

FISHING RECORD SET

ON ANAYANSI TRIP


Four leaf clovers, rabbit's feet, and
horseshoes can not compete with the
luck of the party aboard the launch
"Anayansi" on its Marlin-Sailfish
Tournament trip, August 22-25.
The lucky party of eight, Lucille
Flenniken, Dredging Division; Aril-
lo Kourany, Central Employment Of-
fice; Esther Niskanen, Comptroller's
Office; and Ed Niskanen, Dora Ung,
Comptroller's Office, and Bernard
Ung, Jim Wainio, Terminals Divi-
sion, Cristobal, and Kelly Wainio,
Health Bureau, Cristobal, wasted no
time in catching 86 fish and setting
a new record on the four day trip.
"One day we were catching dol-
phin so fast that we didn't even
have time to net them, we just flipped


them into the boat," said Esther Nis-
kanen, who landed the largest sport
fish on the trip, a 41 lb. bull dol-
phin.
The only persons aboard the
launch who had ever been deep sea
fishing before were the Niskanens,
but Jim Wainio and Arillo Kourany
were not to be outdone by Ed Nis-
kanen's 97 pound sailfish catch, and
both preceded to land sailfish weigh-
ing over 100 Ibs.
The official statistics of the trip
were: 64 dolphin, 6 bonito, 6 rain-
bow runner, 4 wahoo, 3 sailfish,
1 black jack, 1 mackerel, and 1 tuna,
which, according to William Gordon,
pilot of the "Anayansi," is a record
for total amount of fish ever caught
aboard the "Anayansi."


Teen Club Rebuilding

Is Under Consideration


The Balboa Teen Club has closed
and plans are underway for a com-
plete renovation and rejuvenation
IF,-and it's a big IF,-the commu-
nity and the teenagers of Balboa
High and Diablo Junior High show
renewed support for a teen club.
An attendance goal of at least 100
parents and teen age boys and girls
of Balboa High and Diablo Junior
High has been set for an emergency
meeting to be held September 15 at
the Balboa High School Activities
Building.
If the attendance support at that


time shows the community is active-
ly interested in the reopening of a
new Balboa Teen Club, plans for
the future of the club will be dis-
cussed. Tentative plans, contingent
on community support, are for reor-
ganization of the Teen Club itself
and remodeling of the present build-
ing.
All parents of teenagers in the Ca-
nal Zone U.S. communities on the
Pacific side of the Isthmus, and the
teenagers themselves, are asked to
attend the September 15 meeting,
which will open at 8 p.m.


MORE ANNIVERSARY BOOKS
NOW AT RETAIL OUTLETS
In answer to popular demand, an additional 464 Panama
Canal 50th Anniversary books and 1,000 more anniversary me-
dallions have been placed on sale in the Canal Zone.
The 50th Anniversary Books, "The Story of a Great Con-
quest," are available at the Panama Canal service centers in
Balboa, Diablo Heights, Margarita and Coco Solo, and at the
Tivoli Guest House, Balboa Heights Cafeteria, and the Balboa
Retail Store. The anniversary medallions are available at the
same locations.


.







Branch went back to their task of processing the pile of enrollment cards that poured in since the first of the
month when non-U.S. citizen employees in the Panama Canal organization, now insured under the Group Insur-
ance Board Program, began to apply to include their eligible dependents on their policies. From left: Ruth
Torres, Jackie Gilbert, and Janet Stanford. A similar plan for U.S. citizens will go into effect on January 15, 1965.


New Safety

Publication

Available
A 1964 revised edition of the Pa-
nama Canal organization safety reg-
ulations is now available from the
Safety Branch. Those holding co-
pies of the 1959 edition are asked
to discard them and apply through
their local safety representative for
copies of the new edition.
A number of significant changes
have been made in the 1964 edition.
In particular, there are changes in
the requirements of the First Aid
program, the reporting of property
damage, and the requirements for
earning the Annual Safety Trophy
that is presented by the Canal Zone
Governor.
Copies of the new edition of safety
regulations will be furnished auto-
matically to Panama Canal bureau
directors, heads of independent units,
and division chiefs. It is the respon-
sibility of operating bureau safety
representatives to make certain every
supervisor in the bureau is provided
with a copy.

HORSE SHOW
AT FT. KOBBE
Showmanship and skill, topped off
by a parade, will be the program
tomorrow as Isthmian riding clubs
combine to stage the Fort Kobbe
Riding Club Horse Show, starting
at 10 a.m. at Fort Kobbe.
Competition for awards in riding
skills will divided into several age
groups. A show will feature novelty
events designed to furnish thrills for
the audience. Admission is 25 cents
per person, or $1 a carload. Horse
Show Queen Barbara Malinowski of
the Kobbe club will lead a mounted
parade, attended by princesses from
other riding clubs, to kick off the
show.


WATER SUPPLY


INCREASE SET


The capacity of the Miraflores Fil-
tration Plant, which furnishes pota-
ble water for the entire Pacific side
of the Isthmus, is about to be in-
creased by nearly 25 percent.
Work now in progress at the Pa-
raiso raw water pumping station will
increase the flow of raw water to
the filtration plant as part of a plan
to raise ultimate capacity of Mira-
flores from 36 million gallons to
44,600,000 gallons a day.
The Albright Electric Construc-
tion Company, making a low bid of
$77,275, has been awarded the con-
tract for the installation of a com-
plete and coordinated system of re-
mote supervisory control and tele-
metering equipment in the Paraiso
station.


When installation is completed in
9 months, the entire intake system
of Miraflores filtration plant will be
on automatic control. The pumping
equipment at the Gamboa raw wa-
ter intake station has been on auto-
matic control for some years.
With the new remote control sys-
tem, the Paraiso station's capacity to
deliver raw water will be increased
from 25,000 gallons to 35,000 gal-
lons per minute.
The Miraflores Filtration Plant
serves all communities from Gamboa
south including Panama City and
its suburbs. At present it produces
filtered water for the Pacific side at
an average rate of 32 million gallons
a day and has a developed capacity
of 36 million gallons a day.


Well, Feature That!

People are the same thing to an editor that dough is to
a baker.
Without people for raw material, there would be no
stories worth reading. Even the greatest event is important
only because it affects people.
And unusual people make unusual stories. What people
do that is unusual, then, and why they do it, makes good
reading.
The how of a man's hobby, or the what in his background
may seem old hat to those who know him. But to others,
it's news.
Those "others" around here are Spillway readers. They
want to know all about the chap who collects 8th century
jade, or the woman who prefers repairing the family car to
attending an afternoon tea.
If you know someone who would make a good feature,
or some unusual happening tucked away in your neighbor-
hood, let us know.

BROWSinG


COLLECTIon


By Eleanor Burnham


Children and Others by James
Could Cozzens is a collection of sto-
ries which provide fine examples of
the author's versatility and style.
This group is divided into five sec-
tions. "Child's Play" and "Away at
School" tell of times of childhood.
One section deals with the Civil
War; the stories in "Love and Kiss-
es" deal with the world of fastidious
people who dislike facing the harsh
side of life and "Eyes to See" is a
long-ago recollection of the funeral
of a man's mother. This is a Book-
of-the Month Club selection.
New mysteries include Two Men
in Twenty, one of Maurice Procter's
most exciting who-dun-its to date.
Our old friend Inspector Martineau
pursues a safe-cracking mob who
have been upsetting his provincial
bailiwick. My Name is Death is a
Harper Novel of suspense by Leslie
Egan in which a wild wife is mur-
dered before her unhappy husband
can get a divorce. This puts our
hero in an awkward spot from which
his attorney has some trouble extri-
cating him.
The President's Lady, sub-titled
"An intimate biography of Mrs. Lyn-
don B. Johnson" is written in an in-
formal style by Washington news-
paperwoman Marie Smith. There
are numerous photographs which
provide a pleasing insight into the
life of a capable and conscientious
wife, mother, and First Lady.
The Fields of Noon is made up of
autobiographical essays by Sheila


Burnford, author of an earlier inter-
national best-seller, An Incredible
Journey. Mrs. Burnford writes with
a warm enthusiasm of such simple
delights as long walks in Scotland,
"guddling" for trout in an English
stream and of her recollections of a
slow, subtle Canadian spring. Her
love of animals is evident through-
out the book and the final essay
about the last days of a beloved old
bull terrier is a beautiful epitaph to
a friend. Mrs. Burnford was born
in Scotland and now lives in Onta-
rio, Canada.
Kingdom of Illusion by Edward
R. F. Sheehan is a satirical novel of
American involvement in the Mid-
dle East. Sheehan is a New Eng-
lander who has spent several years
as press officer at U.S. Embassies in
Cairo and Beirut. He apparently
knows this part of the world well
-and has used his material effec-
tively to produce an entertaining
novel.
Path of Dalliance is a satiric novel
following the career of a rather or-
dinary young man whose entry into
one of Britain's most respectable
church schools leads him to acquaint-
anceship with members of the Es-
tablishment, undercover intelligence
agents and university professors.
This is really a comedy of manners
with a little bit of everything else
thrown in. Its author is the son of
the well-known British novelist Eve-
lyn Waugh.


WHEREAS fires, most of which
could have been prevented, caused
the loss of approximately 12,000 hu-
man lives and destroyed over a bil-
lion dollars worth of property in
1963; and
WHEREAS this shameful waste
of human and material resources de-
mands immediate community action
to reduce this scourge to an irre-
ducible minimum; and
WHEREAS far too many fires are
caused solely by the carelessness and
apathy of individual citizens:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, LYN-
DON B. JOHNSON, President of the
United States of America, do hereby
designate the week beginning Octo-
ber 4, 1964, as Fire Prevention Week.
I urge State and local govern-
ments, the American National Red
Cross, the Chamber of Commerce of
the United States, and business, la-
bor, and farm organizations, as well
as schools, civic groups, and public-
information agencies to observe Fire
Prevention Week, to develop and
employ effective means for dissemi-
nating fire safety information and
recommendations to all citizens
throughout the year, and promptly
to undertake other effective commu-
nity actions designed to eliminate
the causes of preventable fires. I also
call upon all citizens to understand
and personally support the fire pre-
vention and control efforts of their
respective community fire depart-
ments.
Appropriate Federal agencies will
assist in this effort to reduce the into-
lerable waste caused by preventable
fires.

Details on Housing

In Census Supplement

The 263,836 inhabitants of Pa- apartment houses and 54.7 percent
nama City (1960 Census) live in or 32,437 are rooming houses.


59,345 dwellings, according to a new
supplement issued by the Panama-
nian Bureau of the Census and Stat-
istics. The Bureau is headed by Lui-
sa E. Quesada. Based on data col-
lected during the December 1960
census, figures indicate that there
are 4.4 people per dwelling in Pa-
nama City.
There are 63,833 private dwell-
ings of which 93 percent or 59,345
are occupied and 4.6 percent unoc-
cupied (1,519 are not properly dwell-
ings but are used as such).
Of the 59,345 dwellings, 22.1
percent or 13,116 are separate cot-
tages; and 23.2 percent or 13,792


An interesting insight into Pana-
manian economics can be obtained
from the fact that 22.4 percent of
the dwellings are owned by their
occupants (13,271), another 74.9 per-
cent (44,494) are rental and 2.7 per-
cent (1,580) are listed as "otherwise".
Of Panama City dwellings, 44.7
percent (26,548) are built of con-
crete, clay blocks, or stone; 32,296
(54.4 percent) of wood, 0.1 percent
(46) of adobe and 163 are made of
reeds and straw.
Another fact is that in 71 percent
of those dwellings there are radios,
41.3 percent have refrigerators, 86.2
percent have electric lights, and 86.8
percent can boast a stove.

ZONE'S "LEFT BANK"


IS AT THE TIVOLI


: ',, *i \ ?

A Corner

Showplace

For Art

Budding artists in the Canal Zone
and Panama are no less fortunate
than those of Paris' famed Left Bank.
They too have an art corner in which
to exhibit their works, the Tivoli's
own, "Little Gallery."
Ideally situated on the first floor
of the Tivoli Guest House, "The
Little Gallery" is seldom devoid of
artwork, and always open to the pub-
lic. The Canal Zone and Panama
Branch of the National League of
American Penwomen, whose present
project is the sponsorship of art
shows, now has use of the gallery.
The club, whose members are
semi-professional artists, writers and
musicians, tries to keep art work on
display there the year around. Club
members contribute the paintings,
but occasionally the works of non-
members are exhibited under spon-
sorship of the club. The artists fix
their own prices and when paint-
ings are sold, the club receives a
commission.
An exhibit opened August 1 and
features the art work of members
and the watercolor paintings of non-
member Dean Kennedy of La Joya,
Calif. The one man show of club
member Doris Harned, opened Sep-
tember 6.


BALLET

SET FOR


PANAMA 4

Nina Novak of the Ballet Russe de
Montecarlo will appear in two per-
formances of classical ballet on Tues-
day, September 22 and Wednes- -
day 23, at the Rio Theater in Panama
City, Rogelio Sinan, national direc-
tor of culture in Panama, has an-
nounced.
The internationally famous danc-
er and her company were invited to -
Panama by the Ministry of Educa-
tion. The first performance will be
attended by Panama President Ro-
berto F. Chiari and Mrs. Chiari, and
President-Elect and Mrs. Marco A.
Robles. Lea
The programs will be different
each night.
Reservations may be made by tel-
ephoning Mrs. Ali or Mr. Ferguson
at the Offee of the National Direc-
tion of Culture, Panama 2-5493.



DID YOU KNOW ?
Thousands lost their lives in the
American Civil War from 1861 to
1865, but how many of these dead
fell at Fort Sumter, the opening battle
of the war?
The answer is one. Under the terms
of surrender, Major Anderson, com-
manding the U.S. troops at Fort
Sumter in April 1861, was allowed
to fire a salute to the U.S. flag. On
Sunday, April 14, a gun firing the
50th round exploded and killed Pvt.
Daniel Hough. Five others were
wounded. These six men were the
first Civil War casualties.

the presidential cup team of 1964 of
the international club "Los Guara-
cheros" of Colon by a score of 112-96
in the first of a 2-game series held
in the 10th Infantry gymnasium.
The game was held at the special
invitation of Capt. Raleigh B. Wash-
ington, sent to Francisco Villamil,
founder of the Colon Club.


IF IT FLOATS,



REGISTER IT!


Everything-or nearly everything-
that floats in Canal waters should be
registered with the Port Captains.
Small non-propelled craft such as
cayucas, rowboats and small sailboats
are not exempt although their own-
ers do not have to register them an-
nually nor have them examined.
In order to help keep the records
up to date in the Port Captains' of-
fices on both sides of the Isthmus,
small-boat owners are being asked to
check their registrations.
If the registration was made be-
fore January 1, 1962, owners should
furnish the Port Captains' Offices in
Balboa or Cristobal the following in-
formation: Type and name of craft,
dimensions, name of owner, owner's

ed or if there has been a change of
ownership, the present owner is ask-
ed to go to the Port Captain's office
to obtain a registration certificate.
There is a registration fee of $1.
In accordance with the Rules and
Regulations Governing Navigation in
the Canal Zone Waters, all craft us-
ing Canal Zone waters shall be reg-
istered and assigned a number that
must be displayed in a conspicious
place on the boat.
Small boats with motors must un-
dergo annual inspection and registra-
tion.


New Parking

Area Opens
A 31-space parking area is now
open across the street from the new
Gorgas annex and the Ancon Dental
Clinic. The parking expansion was
readied in an immediate effort to re-
lieve the extreme parking problem
in the Gorgas Hospital area.
When the new annex is complet-
ed, early next year, approximately 90
additional parking spaces will be-
come available. At that time the
new 31-car parking area will be re-
designated for staff parking and den-
tal clinic patients. Until that time,
the 31-car area will be used by pa-
tients and visitors.
Completion of the- new annex,
however, will open the majority of
the reserved parking spaces now in-
side the hospital area alongside the
existing buildings for use as parking
areas by patients.

DESCUIDO Y APATIA SON CAUSA

DE MUCHAS CONFLAGRACIONES
El descuido y el no escuchar las precauciones de seguridad
contribuyen a muchos incendios innecesarios, sefial6 el Gober-
nador Robert J. Fleming, Jr. al rendir tribute a los bombers
de la Zona del Canal por su excelente record.
El Gobernador llam6 la atenci6n a todos los residents so-
bre la proclamaci6n del Presidente Lyndon B. Johnson, desig-
nando la semana que comienza el 4 de octubre de 1964, como
la Semana de Prevenci6n de Incendios.
La proclamaci6n Presidencial:
CONSIDERANDO que los incendios, la mayoria de los
cuales pudieron evitarse, causaron la p6rdida de aproximada-
mente 12,000 vidas humans y destruyeron mis de un bill6n
de d6lares en propiedades en 1963; y
CONSIDERANDO que este desperdicio de recursos ma-
teriales v humans demand una acci6n inmediata de la comu-
nidad para reducir este flagelo a tn minimo irreducible; y
CONSIDERANDO que muchos incendios son causados so-
lamente por el descuido v la apatia de individuos:
Por tanto, yo, Lyndon B. Johnson, Presidente de los Esta-
dos Unidos de Amirica, design la semana que comienza el 4
de octubre de 1964, como la Semana de Prevenci6n de Incendios.
Solicito a los gobiernos estatales y locales, la Cruz Roja Na-
cional Americana, la CAmara de Comercio de los Estados Unidos
y a las organizaciones comerciales, obreras y agricolas, lo mismo
que a las escuelas, grupos civicos y agencies de informaci6n pi-
blica observer la Semana de Prevenci6n de Incendios, desarro-
llar y emplear medios efectivos para diseminar informaci6n y
recomendaciones sobre seguridad contra incendio a todos los
ciudadanos durante todo el afio, y llevar a cabo prontamente
otras medidas comunales efectivas destinadas a eliminar las cau-
sas de incendios evitables. Tambi6n exhorto a todos los ciu-
dadanos a entender y ayudar personalmente en la prevenci6n
de incendios y controlar los esfuerzos de los cuerpos de bom-
beros de sus respectivas comunidades.
Las agencies Federales apropiadas ayudardn en este es-
fuerzo para reducir el gasto intolerable causado por incendios
evitables.

El servicio de guardacostas de
Estados Unidos ha puesto en opera-
ci6n el primer faro at6mico del
mundo.
Un generador de is6topo funciona
en el faro de Baltimore en la bahia
de Chesapeake, Estado de Maryland,
en reemplazo del generador de estilo
conventional que venia dando ener-
gia al fanal de luz alli erigido en 1908.
Antes de instalar el novisimo gene-
rador atomico, 6ste fue sometido a
intensas pruebas en el campo de
Pruebas y Desarrollo de Curtus Bay,
Maryland.
La unidad fue ideada por la Comi-
si6n de Energia At6mica y cons-
truida por la Compafiia Martin.
