New Overhaul System Cutting Lock Lane Outage

Gate Leaves
In Drydock

For Repairs

An unusual operation and a new
procedure were carried out at Mira-
flores Locks this week. For the first
time in the half-century history of
the Panama Canal, the miter gate
leaves at Miraflores Locks were
unhinged, lifted out by the floating
crane Hercules and taken to the
Balboa drydock for overhaul in a
horizontal position.
Under the new procedure, the east
lane by the control house in Mira-
flores Locks was out of service for
3 days this week and again will be
out of service for about 2 weeks.
During the past overhauls, the
lock gates were repaired inside the
lock chamber, and the Canal traffic
lane involved was out of service a
period of 19 days to 7 weeks.
Actually, the present overhaul of
the Miraflores Locks gates is a test
of a procedure developed especially
for this type of work. The grand scale
plan went into effect Monday with
the lifting of the big lock gates from
their pintles in the first phase of the
overhaul operation. Each gate leaf
weighs 1,500,000 pounds or 750 tons,
and the huge mass of metal was lifted
by the crane Hercules, which has a
250-ton lifting capacity.
No magic was involved. The gate
leaves have watertight compart-
ments and are so buoyant that the
deadweight in water to be lifted by
the 250-ton crane is only about 211
tons. The Hercules lifted the miter
gate leaves off their pintles and then
each leaf was moved to the lower
chamber where the leaf was floated
on its face.

3d Driest


On Record
The past month went down on the
records as the third driest December,
so far as Gatun Lake basin runoff is
concerned. And early January was
following the same dry trend in spite
of local rains along the Pacific side
of the Isthmus.
Rainfall totals ranged as much as
13 inches under average for Dcccm-
ber at Portobelo, more than 10 inches
. below average for Cristobal and at
Candelaria, near the northeast tip of
Madden Lake, and nearly 10 inches
under average at Gatun. The Can-
delaria total was an all-time low, so
far as official records are concerned.
Gamboa had the second driest
December on record (82 years) with
total rainfall 5.40 inches under
Accustomed to being "needled"
about dry season rains, Chief Hydro-
grapher T. C. Henter noted that the
rainfalls of January 2 and 4 were
strictly local events on the Pacific
side. Neither was part of any general
weather system bringing any runoff
into the Gatun basin. And thus
neither helped generate a single kilo-
watt of electricity or helped transit
a single ship.
Cristobal's mere 2.03 inches of
rain in December was the third
driest total for the month in 94
years. Gatun's 2.56 was fourth driest
on record.

The Panama Canal crane Hercules lifts miter gate leaf 112 off its pintle prior to towing it back into the lower chamber and then to the Balboa drydock
for overhaul. This gate leaf is one of the north pair in the east lane by the control house at Miraflores Locks.

The gate leaves were towed by
the Hercules Tuesday morning to the
Balboa c~ydock, where an Industrial
Division force is to replace bearing
plates and clean and paint the
gates. Immediately on reaching the
drydock, chipping work started.
Defects developed in the coffer-
dam, preventing its use as first in-
tended, to have Locks Division
personnel work inside it.
Modification will be made to the
cofferdam before it is put into use.
When successfully used, the lock
lane outage periods will be reduced
to three periods of 24 to 48 hours
for overhaul of two miter gate leaves.
The present overhaul operation
will cost about $390,000 and the
total equipment involved is worth
many millions of dollars.
At the drydock, the work on the
gat(s is being accomplished by about
125 Industrial Division employees.
This work force probably will be
transferred to Pedro Miguel to form
part of the 350 employees expected
to the employed in the periodic over-
haul of Pedro Miguel locks about
February 14.
Gates 112 and 113 of Miraflores
Locks were last overhauled in 1948.

counsels, however, that most of the
difficulty with under-withholding will
disappear in 1965 because the actual
tax rate will drop further while the
14 percent withholding rate will
continue without change.
How does a Panama Canal em-
ployee arrange to have additional
amounts withheld from the pay
checks? Simple. Form W-4, the em-
ployee's withholding exemption cer-
tificate, may be obtained from the
Payroll Branch or from the em-
ployee's timekeeper. If the employee
is claiming exemptions as of now, he
may complete this form to claim
zero exemptions, or fewer than the
number to which he is entitled, for
a bit of an assist when U.S. income
tax return time comes in 1965.

Of Vehicles

Under Way
Annual inspection of privately-
owned motor vehicles licensed in
the Canal Zone is under way at
the Motor Transportation Division
garages in Ancon and Cristobal.
Hours for inspection are continu-
ous from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., including
the lunch hour, every day of the
regular workweek, Monday through
Friday. These hours were established
in order to permit owners who work
regular office hours, and others who
work on a shift basis, to have their
cars inspected outside the normal
work periods.
Owners of private vehicles regis-
tered in the Canal Zone are reminded
that they must have in their posses-
sion a copy of their vehicle registra-
tion for 1965 when they bring their
cars for inspection.
The inspection will include brakes,
lighting system, windows and wind-
shields, turn indicators, horns, aline-
ment of wheels, tires, and other
operating parts of the car which
affect safety. After the vehicle passes
inspection, the owner will receive an
inspection sticker which will cost
75 cents.
Although car owners have until
the end of February to get their cars
inspected, they are urged to come
early and avoid the last minute rush.

A conscience is that which no's
what's wrong.

He who laughs last often has a
tooth missing.

One of the toughest tasks in life
is making easy payments.

De Esclusas


Por primera vez en medio siglo de
operaciones se puso en practice esta
semana en las Esclusas de Miraflores
un nuevo sistema para reacondicio-
namiento. Consisti6 en desgoznar las
compuertas, levantarlas mediante el
uso de la gr6a flotante Hdrcules y
transportarlas al dique seco de Bal-
boa, donde descansan en forma hori-
zontal para ser limpiadas y revisadas.
Bajo el nuevo procedimiento, la
hilera Este contigua a la caseta de
control de las Esclusas de Miraflores,
estuvo fuera de servicio durante 3
dias esta semana y lo estarA de nuevo
por cerca de 2 semanas.
Conforme al m6todo anteriormente
usado cada hilera permanecia fuera
de uso durante 7 semanas como
mAximo y 19 dias como minimo.
El procedimiento ahora empleado
se realize en via experimental. La
fase primordial se inici6 el lunes al
levantarse las compuertas de sus goz-
nes. Cada compuerta pesa 1,500,000
libras o 750 toneladas. La graa flo-
tante Hercules, que las alz6 puede
levantar un peso de 250 toneladas.
No hubo necesidad de ninguna
arte de magia ya que las pesadas y
monumentales compuertas son tan
boyantes que el peso muerto en el
agua se reduce a unas 211 toneladas.
La gria Hdrcules las levant por
turno y cada hoja fue transportada
a la cimara inferior, donde se la
coloc6 horizontalmente para que flo-
tase. Entonces la gria Hercules las
remolc6, el martes en la mariana,
hasta el dique seco de Balboa, donde

en 94 afios. Cayeron 2.03 pulgadas.
Eso a pesar de chubascos ocasionales
en el litoral del Pacifico. El mes de
enero se perfila en los mismos linea-
mientos generals.
El total de la caida de lluvias fluc-
tu6 entire 13 pulgadas bajo lo normal
para diciembre en Portobelo, hasta
mis de 10 pulgadas bajo el promedio
normal en Crist6bal y en la Cande-
laria, pr6xima al extreme Noreste del
Lago Madden. En Gatin se regis-
traron casi 10 pulgadas bajo el pro-
medio. El total en la Candelaria es
el mis bajo registrado en esa locali-
dad. Las 2.56 pulgadas que cayeron

tiempo en que queden en desuso las
hileras de esclusas a solo tres perio-

de las compuertas.
Los trabajos de reacondiciona-

Un antiguo "ferry" del Canal de
Panama esthi sirviendo actualmente
para darle nuevo impulse a la isla
chilena de Chiloe, gracias a la Alianza
para el Progreso.
Chiloe, aislada de la masa conti-
nental, requeria un eslab6n que la rest del pais a fin de poder
poner en ejecuci6n el plan de desarro-
1lo del gobierno chileno. El reci6n
inaugurado servicio del "ferry," ahora
rebautizado Alonso de Ercilla, Ilena
ese cometido.
El antiguo Presidente Porras sirvi6
en aguas del Canal hasta ser adqui-
rido por la Misi6n de Operaci6n de
Estados Unidos en Chile en mayo de

regionales y una gran muchedumbre
se congreg6 para presenciar el viaje
inaugural entire Pargua y Chacao. El
"ferry" transportarA products agri-
colas a los mercados de consume en
el Area sur de Chile. ContribuirA
tambi6n al desarrollo del turismo,
pues la isla cuenta con gran atractivo.
El Director de la Misi6n Econ6-
mica de Estados Unidos, John Robin-

Nuevo Servicio de

La Linea Japonesa

La Linea Japonesa ha anunciado
que reanudarA su ruta commercial a la
costa pacifica de Latinoamdrica. Em-
pezando con la motonave Kohoh

mensualmente, tanto para mercaderia
seca cuanto para la que require re-
frigeraci6n. Se aceptarAn embarques
para Crist6bal, Cartagena, Santa

Ambas rutas seran servidas por
naves de la Linea Japonesa que hacen

No sabemos cual sea el record en
devoluciones de llaveros con emble-
mas del Club de Leones pero cual-
quiera que fuere tendria un con-
tendor en la Zona del Canal.
En 1963 el CapitAn John W.
O'Daniel, Jr., prActico del Canal de
PanamA, guiaba un barco noruego
por la rada de Crist6bal, cuando su
llavero se desprendi6 en el obscure-
cido puente de comando, sin que 61
se percatase de ello.
Solo 4 semanas mAs tarde, cuando
el perdido llavero le fue devuelto
desde Noruega, vino el Capitan
O'Daniel a darse cuenta de d6nde lo
habia perdido.
La tinica identificaci6n del llavero
era el emblema del Club de Leones
de Balboa (O'Daniel reside ahora
en Coco Solo).
La venta de esos llaveros consti-
tuye la 6nica actividad desplegada
por el leonismo de Balboa y Coco
Solo para recabar fondos. Un llavero
es enviado por correo a cada dueno
de placa de carro.
Entre las actividades de benefi-
cencia que realize el leonismo, la
principal concierne a la ceguera

Asi es como actuia la espuma de alta expansion para extinguir, sofocandolos, fuegos en liquidos inflamables. La
demostraci6n se llev6 a cabo en la amplia plancha de concrete de Miraflores, donde los bombers de la Zona del
Canal habian regado aceite que luego fue incendiado. La demostraci6n puso en evidencia que la espuma de
alta expansion es muy efectiva ya que cubre un Area muy amplia y se genera en enormes cantidades.

El Jefe de la Divisi6n de Bomberos del Canal de PanamA, W. G. Dolan,
a la izquierda, explica al Vicegobernador de la Zona del Canal, David S.
Parker el m6todo para usar espuma de alia expansion en incendios de liquidos
inflamables. Al fondo estan los generadores de la espuma y los recipients
que contienen la espuma concentrada, la cual va a usar el Sargento Reynolds,
a la derecha. Esta espuma concentrada puede dilatarse 1,000 a 1 en con-
traste con la espuma concentrada regular que tiene una expansion de 10 a 1.
La espuma de alta expansion puede ser producida en grandes cantidades
para cubrir enormes Areas.

Diecinueve afios de actividades
ajustan este mes los "Guaracheros de
Col6n," club social y deportivo que
mientras por un lado conquista el co-
diciado trofeo de baloncesto, anual-
mente obsequiado por el Presidente
de la Rep6blica de PanamA, por el
otro monta una animada comparsa
que durante los carnavales da la
nota de la alegria momesca.
Pero ni el deported (en que han
ganado 8 de los 16 torneos por la
Copa Presidencial) ni las activida-
des sociales, son suficientes para el
desbordante entusiasmo de los "Gua-
racheros" colonenses quieries todavia
hallan tiempo libre para acometer
programs de beneficencia p6blica;
entire ellas la visit annual a Col6n de
los All-Star de la Armada de Estados
Unidos para competir en el ClAsico
"Trofeo Pfizer" y el "Trofeo Con-
suelo" Buenaventura Paolillo, para
beneficio de las classes necesitadas;
asi como el clAsico de baloncesto
"Fondo Unido," versus las Estrellas
del PAF en el Fuerte Clayton, tam-
bien para fines caritativos.
El torneo de baloncesto por la
"Copa Presidencial," fue instaurado
en 1949 por el entonces Presidente
de PanamA, Dr. Arnulfo Arias, a soli-
citud de la Maestra Lucia Mendoza,
y desde entonces ha venido celebrAn-
dose en PanamA afio con afo.

Inspecci6n Anual en

La Zona del Canal
La revista annual de vehiculos par-
ticulares con licencia en la Zona del
Canal se esta llevando a cabo en los
garajes de la Divisi6n de Transporte
a Motor en Anc6n y Crist6bal.
Las horas de revista son continues
desde las 8 a.m. hasta las 5 p.m.
incluyendo la hora de almuerzo,
todos los dias de trabajo regular, de
lunes a viernes. Estas horas fueron
establecidas para permitir a los pro-
pietarios que trabajan en horas regu-
lares de oficina, y a los otros que
trabajan por turn, revisar sus auto-
m6viles fuera de las horas normales
de trabajo.
Se recuerda a los duefios de ve-
hiculos particulares registrados en la
Zona del Canal que deben tener en
su poder una copia del registro de
su vehiculo para 1965 cuando lleven
a revisar el autom6vil.
La revista incluira frenos, sistema
de alumbrado, ventanas y parabrisas,
luces direccionales, bocinas, alinea-
ci6n de ruedas, Ilantas, y otras parties
de operaci6n del autom6vil que afec-
ten la seguridad. Despues que el
vehiculo pase la revision, el duefio
recibira una etiqueta de revisado que
costara 75 centavos.
Aunque los duefios de autom6viles
tendrAn hasta el fin de febrero para
revisar sus vehiculos, se les solicita
hacerlo temprano para evitar apuros
de ultima hora.
