New System in Use.for Scheduling,


Control of Increasing Ship Traffic


For the first time in the 50-year
history of the Panama Canal, a new
system is being used to schedule and
control the ever-increasing ship
traffic.
As part of the continuing effort to
increase the capacity of the Canal
and bring its operation more in line
with modern methods, the scheduling
and transit control of vessels using
the Canal have been centralized in
the Balboa office of the Marine
Traffic Control section of the Naviga-
tion Division.
The scheduling of ships for dock
services, of deckhands and pilotage
requirement for transit, and deter-
mining and reporting readiness for
transit will be the responsibility of
the Terminal Marine Traffic Con-
trollers. Thus there will be a Ter-
manal marine train control season
at Cristobal, and a merged Terminal
and Transit Control Section centered
at Balboa.
Since early Monday morning, every
ship arriving for transit at either
Balboa or Cristobal has been fitted
into a traffic pattern put together 24
hours in advance by one of five men
called "schedulers" who make their
headquarters on the third floor of
the Balboa Terminal Building.

CRTgO Mark
The Essi Gina, first to break a
Panama Canal transit record as a
direct result of the draft increase
bonus announced last July, now has
broken her own record set in an
August 9 northbound transit. The
Essi Gina transmitted northbound No-
vember 28 with 52,540 long tons of
iron ore to establish a new record.
The previous record was set by the
Essi Gina when she transited August 9
with 51,843 long tons of iron ore.
The draft increase bonus, an-
nounced last July by Capt. Mortimer
J. Prince, USN, Panama Canal Ma-
rine Bureau Director, increased the
cargo carrying potentialities of the
big super cargo ships through in-
crease in the permissible tropical
fresh water draft allowed during the
rainy season when the lake level is
high.
The increase in cargo carrying
capacity due to increase in the per-
missible draft of the big ships using
the Canal adds nothing to the tolls
the ships pay.


outer anchorage and Gamboa. The
Cristobal office scheduled traffic from
the Cristobal breakwater to Gamboa.
The system required innumerable
conferences between the traffic con-
trollers in the Atlantic and Pacific
terminals, but scheduling and control
had become increasingly more diffi-
cult as the number of Canal cus-
tomers began to arrive on an average
of 34 a day.
Even when it became apparent
that centralized traffic control and


scheduling was the answer, the im-
plementation of the new system was
delayed until installation of new high
frequency voice radio communication
equipment.
Installed by the Motorola Co., the
equipment provides a two-way voice
radio system operating in the 150
megacycle frequency band, linking
the Marine Traffic controllers in
Balboa with pilots aboard ships any-
where in the Canal. Another similar

The schedulers, working around
the clock on 8-hour shifts, have cen-
tralized in the Balboa terminal a job
which recently has been giving the
Marine Traffic Control people a large
headache.
Previously the hard-working Ma-
rine Traffic Controllers in Balboa and
Cristobal scheduled for transit only
as far as Gamboa those ships arriving
in their respective ports. In other
words, the Balboa office handled
transit traffic between the Balboa

'Twas St. Andrew's Day and the Scots got together for the annual meeting of the clans and a bit of Scotland on
the Isthmixs, as they have for the past 3 years. The Scots, those of Scottish descent and guests gathered at the
Albrook Officers' Club for this year's observance. Singing a song of Scotland to the accompaniment of Lucho Azcit-
rraga are, from left: James Stark, Edmund R. MacVittie, Duncan Laird, Sr., and Duncan Laird, Jr. Forty olans
were represented by the 160 Scots and guests who attended. A highlight of the evening was the "piping in" of
the Haggis, 25 pounds of this ceremonial food, imported from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Most drivers feel that they know
.
how to handle the familiar emergency
situations that might arise. But when
suddenly faced with a situation re-
quiring quick action some find they
don't quite know as much as they
thought they did.
Here are some emergency situa-
tions. What would you do in each
case? .
1. Your right wheels drop off onto
a soft shoulder.
2. A tire blows out.
3. Your brakes fail.
4. Your lights suddenly black out
on a dark night.
5. You see an oncoming vehicle
approaching in your lane.
When emergencies such as these
occur there's no time for looking in
a handbook or digging out some set
of instructions. You must know what
to do and do it immediately.
To see what experts say to do in
these situations turn to page 4.

Students Need

Departure Cards
All college students resident in the
Canal Zone who plan to depart the
Isthmus at the end of the Christmas
holiday are reminded by the Panama
Canal Customs Office that they are
required to have departure cards in
their possession before they may
board a plane at Tocumen Airport.
These cards are easy to obtain, but
without them there's no embarking.
The departure cards are issued to
dependents of Canal employees by
the Customs officials at the Customs
office in the Terminal Building,
Balboa, in the Administration Build-
ing, Cristobal, or at the Transporta-
tion Branch office at the Balboa Rail-
road Station. All that is needed to
obtain the card is proof that the
student is a dependent of a Canal
Zone employee.
Dependents of military personnel
in the Canal Zone may obtain the
departure cards from the appropriate
authority of each military command.
Students are urged to obtain the
departure cards prior to proceeding
to the airport, as they will not be
permitted to embark an outgoing
aircraft without the departure card.

1. He avoids trying to get his
vehicle back on the road with a quick
wrench of the steering wheel. He
remains calm, takes his foot from the
accelerator, applies the brake lightly,
and continues to roll straight ahead
On the shoulder until the speed is
well reduced. Then when he can do
so safely he slowly pulls back onto
the paved portion of the roadway,
turning the wheels sharply as he
does so.
2. He remains calm, holds the
steering wheel firmly, keeps the
vehicle in his traffic lane and slows
down by using engine compression
and by making intermittent applica-
tions of the brakes. There are times
when it's necessary to accelerate
slightly to gain control immediately
following a blowout. After the vehicle
is under control the expert pulls to
the right, well off the travelled
portion of the highway, and stops.
3. He pulls on his hand brake and
shifts down to let the engine com-
pression slow the vehicle. In a city,
scuffing the right tires against the
curb may help to slow a vehicle
without brakes. Actually, the hand
brake is a holding brake and really

Pagilla 3


Diciembre 11, 1964


El Dr. Gale, dice el articulo, ha
estado "coleccionando" desde que era
un muchacho en Ashland, Oreg6n.
Dijo que comenz6 con una variedad
de culebras, pero cuando comenza-
ron a movers libremente por la casa,
so madre 10 hizo cambiar a pijaros.

Desde este comienzo prosigui6
laasta conseguir su doctorado en me-
dicina veterinarian en la Universidad
del Estado de Washington y uno en
salubridad pilblica de la Universidad
de Tulane en Nueva Orleans. El prac-
tic6 esto privadamente en Los Ange-
les y Cavina, sirvi6 como consultor
en el Parque Zool6gico Griffith y en
1959 se convirti6 en veterinario del
condado de Los Angeles. Vino a la
Zona del Canal en 1960. Su raz6n
para partir, dijo al periodista, fue
torque en Balboa podia especiali-
zarse solamente en animals centro-
americanos, 10 cual era limitado.

Ahora, dice 61, "estoy en posici6n
de combiner mi vocaci6n con mi pa-
satiempo. Y cualquiera que pueda
hacer eso es un hombre con suerte."


Una larga entrevista con el Dr.
Nathan B. Cale, antiguo veterinario
con la Divisi6n de Medicina Vete-
rinaria del Canal de PanamA, quien
renunci6 su posici6n para convertirse
en el nuevo subdirector del Gran Zoo-
16gico de Los Angeles, ha sido publi-
cada en el diario Los Angeles Times.
Al explicar la fauna ex6tica que
se le ha unido desde que 11eg6 a Los
Angeles, el Dr. Gale dijo al periodista
o
di nTC ta 1 ."como una colec-
Aparentemente se encuentra casi
en el mismo ambience que cuan o es-
taba en la Zona del Canal, ya que
una fotografia con el articulo lo
muestra con dos eachorros de ocelote.
Cuando residia aqui, un eachorro de
ocelote se encontraba por lo general
entre sus animals dombsticos.
Parindose ante una variedad de
culebras venenosas de coral en el
Gran Zool6gico de Los Angeles, se-
fial6 que "usted puede encontrar
cosas como Astas debajo de su casa
despubs de una fuerte lluvia. [Y sin
que le cueste nada!"


Los miembros del Friendship Club
se reunieron, recientemente, para ce-
lebrar el segundo aniversario del Club
de Empleados Federales no estado-
unidenses y para rendir tribute a uno
de sus miembros.
Frank V. Burke fue honrado por
su destacada labor en favor de sus
compaileros de trabajo. Sus muchas
actuaciones destacadas como traba-
jador social y su espiritu de amistad
le hicieron acreedor del primer lugar
en el Cuadro de Honor del club.
Entre las realizaciones de Burke
estin el arreglo de paseo en lancha
y giras educativas en la Zona del
Canal y el arreglo de conferences
por prominentes cindadanos y profe-
sionales. Burke es uno de los funda-
dores del Club de Ayuda Mutua de
Paraiso que auspici6 la instalaci6n de
una placa en Paraiso honrando a los
panameiios que ofrendaron sus vidas
en los campos de batalla de Corea.
Tambi6n es responsible de mu-


chas actividades humanitarian duran-
te 6pocas de desastres. Burke es
tambi6n el fundador de la primer
biblioteca escolar en Chilibre.
El Sr. Peter Chen actu6 como
Maestro de Ceremonias durante el
program. La invocaci6n y la ben-
dici6n fueron impartidas por el Rev.
Aurelio A. Dawkin. El orador invi-
tado en la ceremonial fue C&spedes
Burke, Director de la Escuela de
Comercio Pan-Ecletic. La Srta. Luisa
Jones hizo la presentaci6n del miem-
bro distinguido.
Prominentes lideres de la comuni-
dad asistieron al program de ani-
versario del Friendship Club. Los
prop6sitos y objetivos del club son
fomenter la amistad entre todos los
empleados, crear un mejor entendi-
miento de democracy a trav6s de
conferences e instrucciones ofrecidas
por lideres prominentes de la comu-
nidad y prestar ayuda cuando se
necesita.
