THE PANAMA CANAL

Gift of the Panama Canal Museum


Vol. III, No. 38 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, March 12, 1965



Pedro Misuel Locks Goes Back


On 2-Lane Schedule Monday. i


Both lanes at Pedro Miguel Locks
will be opened to traffic at 7 a.m.
Monday, March 15, and will remain
open until March 18 to clear any
backlog of traffic which may have
developed.
Opening of the two lanes will fol-
low completion by the Maintenance
Division of repairs to the floor of the
west lane of Pedro Miguel Locks and
termination of the regularly sched-
uled overhaul carried on in the west
lane by the Locks Division.
Delays to shipping have occurred
during recent weeks while the west
lane of Pedro Miguel remained out
of operation and while traffic through
the Panama Canal rose to a daily
average of 35.1 ships.
The surge of ships arriving at the
Canal for transit had been predicted
soon after the dock strike at most
east coast U.S. ports came to an end.
By keeping both lanes open for a
few days before regular overhaul
starts in the Pedro Miguel east lane,


all ships waiting for transit will be
accommodated.
According to present plans, the
east lane will be taken out of service
March 18 at 6 p.m. and overhaul in
that lane started. The work is sched-
uled for completion within 4 weeks,
with Pedro Miguel to be back in full
operation by mid-April.
During the first week in March,
108 ships of more than 300 Panama
Canal net tons moved northbound
and 132 ships of the same size made
the transit south. Of these vessels,
46-almost 1 out of 5-required clear
Cut through all or part of the Gaillard
Cut due to their size, hazardous cargo,
or poor handling characteristics.
Meanwhile, in view of the con-
tinued fall of the Gatun Lake level
during the present dry season, vessels
arriving at the Canal for transit will
be limited to a maximum tropical
fresh water draft of 37 feet effective
March 22.
According to a memorandum issued


PanCanal and Military

Going to David Fair!


The Panama Canal organization
and the United States Southern Com-
mand will be represented at the San
Jos6 Fair in David, March 18 to 22.
Governor Fleming, other PanCanal
officials, and all Canal Zone residents
have been invited to attend the fair.
Frank A. Baldwin, Panama Canal
Information Officer, has stated that
details have been completed for the
Canal Zone representation in this
commercial and cultural event.
The Panama Canal will bring to
David the mobile display known as
the "Kontiki," featuring photographs
and slides that portray the construc-
tion of the Canal and activities and
points of interest of the interoceanic
waterway. The Panama Canal display
also will include a selectrovision
apparatus, which will provide further


visual information on points of inter-
est of the Big Ditch.
Frank AzcArraga will present a
program of gay music at the Panama
Canal booth. One of the best military
bands in the Canal Zone also will go
to the David Fair.
Military paratroopers will make
spectacular jumps and will come
down in the vicinity of the fair
grounds.
Another attraction at the Panama
Canal booth will be a zoological ex-
hibit, which will include interesting
examples of native Panama fauna.
The burritos, Mancha and Gato of
Summit Gardens will provide free
rides for children who weigh less
than 70 pounds.
During the fair, visitors will be
presented interesting literature on the
construction, maintenance and oper-
ation of the Panama Canal.


by Capt. C. E. Briggs, Jr., Chief of
the Navigation Division, it has been
predicted that the Gatun Lake level
from March 22 to April 2 will be
dropping 84 feet 6 inches to 84 feet.
The level of the lake was reported at
84.91 feet at 7 a.m. March 8.


You Can


Help Save


A Million
You can help save a million! Gal-
lons of water, that is. About 3 million
gallons of water are used each day in
Pacific side communities for irriga-
tion or lawn watering. Much of
this is wasted by excessive water-
ing or improper placement of lawn
sprinklers.
This waste is overtaxing water sys-
tem distribution facilities. It also is
increasing the strain on electrical
power demands for pumping water
during the current critical electrical
power shortage.
Only by judicious use of irrigation
water can an adequate supply of
water be assured for drinking and
sanitary purposes and a reserve supply
for fire fighting needs.
Here are ways you can help:
1. Don't over-water lawns and
shrubs.
2. Don't water between 10 a.m.
and 2 p.m.
3. Turn off sprinklers before
retiring at night.
4. Hand water areas difficult to
sprinkle-where much of
the irrigation water might
flow into a drain or into
a street.
5. Don't use water indiscrimi-
nately.
Only your cooperation will assure
an adequate supply of good potable
water during this dry season high
demand period.

Before the chemical treatment was used, elodea, or aquatic grass, covered
about half the Chagres River at this point. This photograph was taken
looking south on the Chagres River, toward the Gamboa Pump Station.


It All May Have Started

In a Goldfish Bowl...


The battle the Panama Canal's
Dredging Division is waging against
elodea, the aquatic grass with a
melodious name and undesirable
propagating propensity, probably had
its start down here in someone's
fishbowl years ago.
The flat leaf blades of the aquatic
grass, growing from thick interlacing
roots are the same that sell for
about 25 cents a foot for use in gold-
fish bowls. And by that yardstick,
Chief Julian S. Hearne of the Dredg-
ing Division points out, there's about
a billion dollars' worth of fishbowl
grass in the Canal's waterways.
Totally unappreciated, too, for what
may be scenic background for gold-
fish is viewed with undisguised loath-


ing by everyone connected with ships
and shipping, and especially fisher-
men.
The Dredging Division has tried
various strategies in the battle with
clogging, choking elodea, but now is
finally making headway in the grass
war, and has before and after photo-
graphs to prove it.
Coordinating with chemists in the
Panama Canal's Water and Labora-
tories Branch, the Dredging Division
is using copper sulphate which goes
to the very roots of the plants, killing
them. After being treated, the grass
clumps break loose and drift about
and the next problem is to keep these

After 3 months, a photograph was taken from the same site, looking toward
the Gamboa Pump Station, showing little trace of the aquatic grass that had
been so profuse here before treatment.


This is "rating month" for all em-
ployees of the Panama Canal organ-
ization. Purpose of the Annual Per-
formance Rating Plan is to provide
a method to evaluate the work per-
formance of employees in order to
recognize their merits and contribu-
tion to efficiency and economy.
It also is felt that it helps improve
employee performance by: Strength-
ening supervisor-employee relation-
ships; identifying work standards and
requirements; informing employees
of these standards and requirements;
recognizing commendatory and out-
standing performance; recognizing
and correcting work deficiencies; pro-
viding a guide to personnel actions.
Supervisors are required to discuss
with and notify employees of their
ratings. There are 3 ratings: "Out-
standing," "Satisfactory," and "Un-
satisfactory." If you are rated "Satis-
factory," your supervisor must notify
you orally or in writing. Written
justification is required for "Out-
standing" and "Unsatisfactory."
In performance evaluation, the fol-
lowing criteria are specified (except
that the last point in each group is
used only in rating of supervisors):
Quality of performance: Thorough-


ness; acceptability and adequacy of
results; dependability and accuracy;
orderliness and neatness; technical
skill with which important proce-
dures, instruments, or machines are
employed in performing duties;
original suggestions or contributions
to improvement in work methods;
effectiveness in getting good work
done in a unit.
Productiveness: Amount of work
done; industry, application of time,
interest, and energy to duties; plan-
ning work to utilize best time and
resources; speed, promptness in com-
pleting assignments; effectiveness in
securing adequate output from a unit.
Qualifications shown on job:
Knowledge of duties and related
work; ability to learn and profit by
observation and experience; special
education and training for position;
judgment, sense of proportion, com-
mon sense; initiative and resourceful-
ness, ability to improve; cooperative-
ness, ability to work with and for
others; effectiveness in developing
and training employees.
For a rating of outstanding, an
employee must rate outstanding in
each of the points. For a rating of
satisfactory, the employee must rate


satisfactory or better in each cate-
gory. For a rating of unsatisfactory,
the employee must rate unsatisfac-
tory in one or more categories.
Employees' records will be avail-
able for inspection by employees in
the Personnel Records-Administra-
tive Branch, Personnel Bureau, after
April 15.
Employees have a right of appeal.
A copy of the Personnel Manual is
available in every unit and may be
referred to for full details concerning
the performance rating plan.

Each student using the Balboa
Heights Railroad Station during lunch
period is expected to deposit all lunch
wrappings in the containers provided,
and make certain the area is clean,
before returning to school.

Littering of the Railroad Station,
and willful destruction of Government
property in this area, unless stopped
immediately, will result in the Rail-
road Station being put off limits to
the students at noon.

The Community Services Division
has been in the process of replacing
old fixtures and improving the appear-
ance of the Balboa Heights Railroad
Station restrooms, which are used
by the general public, tourists, and
students during the lunch period.

Shortly after a new paper towel
dispenser was installed and the rest-
room walls repaired with fresh con-
crete, the paper towel holder was
torn from the wall and the new
concrete was gouged out. This was
the third paper towel holder installed
this year. Moreover, the doors to the
toilet booths, painted to cover filthy
language and pictures, again have
been defaced with obscenities.

To Stage Comedy


A comedy about the taming of a
carefree bohemian who has sniffed at
making a living on the world's terms
will be the next attraction at the Cris-
tobal Little Theater in France Field.
It is A Thousand Clowns, a major
Broadwav hit for over a year after its
opening in the spring of 1962. The
play opens March 26 and runs March
27, 28, and April 2, 3, and 4. Curtain
time is 8 p.m.

Surse Pierpoint (Murray Burns)
will be starred in the role of a tele-
vision writer who has thrown up his
well-paying job because of his con-
viction that life should be enjoyed
and not just endured.

Twelve-year-old John Carlysle, of
Margarita, has the role of Murray
Burns' nephew, Nick Burns, whose
presence in the home of the carefree
Murray is of great concern to the
Child Welfare Board and sets the
pace for the action-packed comedy.
The show also features Mary Berto-
vitch in the role of Dr. Markowitz,
a child psychologist with the Welfare
Board, and Bob Carton as the TV
personality, Chippy the Chipmunk.

Mike Burns, from the Information
Office at Fort Gulick, makes his first
appearance with the Cristobal Little
Theater as Albert Amundsen, also
from the Child Welfare Bureau. Bert
Berger adds another laurel to his
many appearances with the Cristobal
Theater group in the role of Arnold
Burns, brother of Murray Burns, who
has succeeded in the business world
as an impressario and is content with
"playing the game according to the
rules."

Trevor Simons is director. Jim Ken-
nard, from the Special Forces Group
at Fort Gulick, has designed and
constructed the two scenes. Jean
Judge, Pat Balis, Tim McCoy, Archie
Holton, John McNatt, Betty Powell,
Peg Valentine, and a host of others
are crewmembers.

Grace Williams is accepting reser-
vations at Cristobal 3-1916.

~~a~~


Mrs. June Greaves, secretary at the Rainbow City Junior-Senior High School
and wife of Alfonso Greaves, professor of mathematics at this school, pauses
to read the inscription on the monument that honors the Panama Canal
construction period West Indians.


1952 Marker Replaced

By Monument, Plaque


Panama Canal construction period
West Indian workers "who moved the
earth to unite the world" are honored
by a bronze plaque set into a 7-foot-
high monument erected in front of
the Rainbow City Junior-Senior High
School to replace a former less per-
manent marker erected by the Rain-
bow City High School students in
1952.
Wording of the former painted
sign, which was fading, now is
inscribed on the bronze plaque, 36
inches by 24 inches. The plaque is
set into the white cement monument,
which has clear beads added to give
a reflector effect and marble-like
glow.


The wording on the plaque is as
follows:
"In appreciation for the construc-
tion period West Indians who moved
the earth to unite the world-1904-
1914.
"We the descendants of those West
Indians proudly dedicate this plaque
to their memory. We are grateful to
our forebears for this glorious tradi-
tion which is our rich heritage. We
pledge our best efforts to uphold this
tradition and to strive intelligently
for a better way of life.
"Erected September 1952 by the
Rainbow City Occupational High
School students."


All That Grass from a Goldfish Bowl?


(Continued from p. 1)
clumps corralled to prevent their
settling in a new area.
As an answer to this problem, work
is now concentrated in the back areas,
letting the front fringe hold the mass
which rots and eventually sinks.
So far, approximately 200 acres
have been treated, and in most cases
only one application of the chemical
was required to clear the once-
clogged waters. Where the root
masses are exceptionally thick, a
second application is sometimes nec-
essary. After properly applied treat-
ment, a waterway will be clear of
grass for about a year. The aquatic
grass may return spottily, but after
two or three applications will even-
tually all rot and sink.
The Dredging Division has devised
a mechanical method employing a
hopper and eductor with a jet stream
of water that can jet out a copper
sulphate mixture at the rate of 3,000
pounds an hour. The jet stream is so
swift that the copper sulphate is still
in undissolved crystal form when it
hits the aquatic grass roots. When
these roots are thus seeded with
copper sulphate crystals, the treat-
ment may be needed only about once
a year, should the grass ever reappear.
Heretofore a 30-foot 6-ton rake was
used in cleaning up the aquatic grass
masses. This was a fairly costly oper-
ation and is no longer the preferred
method, since some of the grass gets
away, and it may continue to spread.


Aquatic grass control work has
been in progress on the lower Chagres
River above the Gamboa Bridge area,
in the Dump 4/2 area, at Laguna,
and as far as Gatun in one direction
and Pedro Miguel in the other.
Dredging Division Chief Hearne
pointed out that complete eradication
of aquatic grass may not be possible
in an area such as Gatun Lake, which
is an extensive area to keep under
control, but the use of chemicals will
keep the aquatic grass enough under
control so it will not become a menace
to navigation. In smaller areas, and
in ponds, for instance, the control is
usually effective.
Even after a waterway is cleared
of aquatic grass, watch must be main-
tained and action taken immediately
because there is no guarantee against
recurrence of the pest. Wherever re-
creational and commercial boats go,
the aquatic grass is likely to be spread
by propellor or rudder.
But in the past 10 months the
Dredging Division has really been
making definite headway in the Battle
Against Aquatic Grass.

GUIDED MISSILE
Out in San Francisco a truck
driver's estranged wife refused to
open the door so he smashed his
pickup truck four times into the side
of the house, finally landing in the
kitchen. Police booked him for inves-
tigation of assault with a deadly
weapon-the truck.

Water, but Discretely
(Continued from p. 1)
The idea of saving water on the
Canal Zone may seem ridiculous-
when we can look in almost any
direction and see a bountiful supply.
Many people don't realize how much
power it takes to supply this water
to residences and also that the capac-
ities of the water mains and storage
tanks do have a limit. Basically, our
water supply is ample (in the lakes),
but when there's a fire, it's what
comes out of the local hydrant that
counts.
Remember, water running down a
sewer is completely wasted.
Each dry season we are faced with
the prospect of brown lawns and
wilted shrubs. Grass rarely dies on
the Isthmus, however, from lack of
water. And selective watering of
shrubs and flowers will keep them
alive until the rainy season starts
again. Please cooperate!

For LA Student Aids


SS Hope Benefit

Spaghetti Dinner

Planned March 20
Ancon Assembly No. 3, Order of
Rainbow for Girls, will give a spa-
ghetti dinner on March 20 at the
Ancon Masonic Temple for the bene-
fit of the hospital ship SS Hope.
Dinner will be served from 5 to
8 p.m.
The idea of raising money for the
SS Hope was suggested to the Rain-
bow Girls by Worthy Advisor Janice
Wilson, who is a member of the
Future Nurses of America at Balboa
High School and who had been im-
pressed by the work of the hospital
ship depicted in a film presented for
the Future Nurses.
Rainbow Girls are selling tickets
for the benefit spaghetti dinner, and
tickets also will be on sale at the door
March 20. Tickets for children are
50 cents; adults, $1.
The SS Hope is one of the four
international voluntary agencies shar-
ing in funds of the Federal Service
Joint Crusade, an appeal which runs
through April 2.


Four Monday morning briefing
sessions for the Latin American Stu-
dent Aids on the responsibilities and
activities of various units of the Canal
organization are scheduled from
March 15 through April 26, at the
Balboa High School Activities Build-
ing auditorium.
Each briefing session will be from
7:15 a.m. to 9:45 a.m., and will
cover two Panama Canal Bureaus.
The schedule of briefing sessions:
Monday, March 15, "The Employee
and His Job/Marine Bureau;" Mon-

TAX: ON '65 BASIS
Effective with the pay period end-
ing today, Panama Canal employees
subject to Panama income tax will
have withholding tax taken from their
pay at the new 1965 tax basis. Thus
the next paychecks received will
reflect the new tax withholding rate.
Panama law requires that anyone
who has not filed a certificate listing
dependents and other personal data
be treated as a single person with
withholding tax taken at the highest
rate. Between 3,000 and 4,000 em-
ployees have not filed this declaration.
Their deductions will reflect this.


Trailerites Vanguard


Of Larger Caravan Due


A long long trail a-winding.
Trailer people have more fun than
most people by being explorers in a
day when there are few who still
explore.
Several families in trailers arrived
in Panama recently after navigating
the long long trail from the United
States through Central America.
Like others who have arrived in
Panama by way of the Interamerican
Highway, the visitors said that trailer
travel probably is the best way to
make friends and meet people. It is
also the best way to see the country.
Parked in what has become the
unofficial trailer reservation near the
Jos6 Rem6n Racetrack in Panama,
the trailer owners happily compared
notes, sampled native food and made
plans for their return trip to the
United States.
Two of the families, who met for


the first time recently in Mexico and
came to Panama together, said that
they found they were almost neigh-
bors in Indiana. They were Mr. and
Mrs. L. M. Stephens of Logansport
and Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Doty of
South Bend. The Stephens have
ventured as far north as the Yukon.
This was their first visit to Panama
although they had been in Central
America before.
Others in the group were Bill
Jewell of Boulder, Colo., and Mr.
and Mrs. Robert Rynders of Geneva,
N.Y. The Ryners are the owners of
a custom built bus which tows a
jeep on the long trips. The jeep is
used for city travel or short explora-
tion jaunts.
This trailer traveler group was the
vanguard of a caravan of 148 trailers
expected to visit Panama later in
March.

"Yes we have no bananas." Visitors from the United States who arrived here after traveling through Central
America in trailers get samples from a stalk of Panama bananas, one of the first things they purchased upon
their arrival on the Isthmus. Bill Jewell, of Boulder, Colo., is starting to pass out bananas to Mr. and Mrs. L. M.
Stephens and Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Doty, of Indiana.

The students from the Atlantic side
will board the 5 a.m. train the day
of each briefing session, and will
arrive in Balboa at approximately
6:20 a.m. The morning session will
begin at 7:15 a.m. and end at 9:45

a.m. train back to Cristobal, and will
arrive in Colon at approximately
11:30 a.m.
The Pacific side students will be
returned to their work sites by bus,
except for those students who work
in the Administration Building, who
will be expected to walk to their jobs.

Gana Terreno la Campana Para


Erradicar la Yerba Subacuatica


La present batalla que la Divi-
si6n de Dragas del Canal de Panama
viene realizando para combatir la
propagaci6n de la vegetaci6n acua-
tica, probablemente tuvo su origen
en el musgo que se vende para adorno
del fondo de las peceras caseras.
Esa circunstancia ha salido a luz
al descubrirse la similitud que guar-
dan ambas vegetaciones. El jefe de la
Division de Dragas, JuliAn S. Hearne
sefiala que si la hierbita para las pece-
ras caseras se vendiese a 25 centavos
el pie, la que entorpece el Canal
podria valorarse como en mil millo-
nes de d6lares . ademas de que
ya deja de ser adorno para conver-
tirse en serio problema para a nave-
gaci6n y auin para los pescadores.
La Division de Dragas ha probado
varias estratagemas para combatir esa
vegetaci6n subacuitica, hasta que al
fin parece que se hubiera encontrado
el m6todo adecuado, segin se des-
prende de fotografias recientes.
Con la ayuda de quimicos del
Ramo de Acueductos v Laboratorio
se estA empleando sulfato de cobre
que afecta hasta las mismas raices
de las plants, destruyvndolas. Cuan-
do esto sucede los racimos se des-
prenden y flotan, lo que crea un
problema adicional que es el de reco-
gerlos para que no vayan a arraigarse
en otros sitios.
El trabajo actualmente se concen-
tra en las areas posteriores a fin de
que la hilera del frente sirva como
ret6n; de esta suerte los mazos de

vegetaci6n desprendida tropiezan con
ese ret6n v se hunden.
Hasta el present se ha empleado
este sistema en cerca de 200 acres
v en la mavoria de los casos ha bas-
tado una sola aplicaci6n del sulfato
de cobre para limpiar el Area. Donde
la vegetaci6n es muy tupida, se aplica
generalmente un segundo tratamiento.
Los efectos del tratamiento duran
alrededor de un anio. La vegetaci6n
acuAtica, aun cuando reaparece espo-
radicamente, cede totalmente des-
pues de dos o tres aplicaciones del
sulfato de cobre.
La Division de Dragas utiliza un
novedoso sistema para esparcir la
soluci6n quimica, utilizando un heli-
coptero desde el cual es diseminada
a la rata de 3,000 libras por hora.
Anteriormente se habia utilizado
un rastrillo de 6 toneladas y 30 pies
de largo para arrancar esa recalci-
trante vegetaci6n.
Aunque el Sr. Hearne consider
Ique la erradicaci6n total no es posi-
ble en areas tales como el Lago GatHn,
demasiado extensa para mantenerla
bajo control, el uso de la soluci6n
si serA eficaz al punto de que ya esa
vegetaci6n no constituya una ame-
naza a la navegaci6n. En areas mas
pequenas el control si es absolute.
Pero aun despu6s de haberse sanea-
do un Area, debe mantenerse bajo
vigilancia constant para que no re-
aparezca. Otra forma insospechada
para la diseminaci6n de la vegetaci6n
acuAtica, son las h6lices de los botes
de recreo.

"Este no es Trabajo



De Plomeria" Dijo el



Plomero al Puerco Espin

Eso de que lo llamen a uno para Las espinas lucen blancas en su
enfrentarse, de buenas a primeras, extremidad, obscureci6ndose al des-
a un animal espinoso y hostile no esta gender para lucir amarillas junto al
contemplado en ningin manual de lomo.
plomeria y maldita la gracia que le iY el puerco espin? Esta bien,
causa a uno. gracias.


El plomero habia sido llamado
para que revisara de d6nde proce-
dia el mal olor que los alumnos de la
Escuela Primaria de Anc6n percibian
al aproximarse a la fuente de agua
del gimnasio.
Pero-al abrir el gabinete, qued6
cara a cara con un cimulo de espinas
dorsales de un flamante y agrio
puerco espin.
Ante la espinosa situaci6n, no hubo
mas remedio que ponerse en contact
con el jefe de predios, Roy Sharp,
quien siendo puntiagudo, podria
mejor encararse al problema de las
agudas puntas del feo bicho.
Como Sharp tambi6n significa in-
genioso, waste dio pruebas de su pers-
picacia agarrando al animalejo por la
cola, que pendia mansamente, pues
el puerco espin, con infulas de aves-
truz, ocultaba la cabeza creyendo con
ello esconder el cuerpo bajo su
erizado alambrado de pias.
Eso, empero, no ha resuelto todo
el problema pues Mr. Sharp tiene
ahora en casa un huesped inh6spito
y huranio que rehusa toda alimenta-
ci6n vegetal, except las naranjas que
si avivan su gula.

Drake se Publico

En Revista Militar
Un articulo titulado "Metamorfo-
sis del Drake," escrito por Julius
Grigore, Jr., Subjefe de la Divisi6n
Industrial de la Direcci6n de Marina
de Mount Hope, aparece en el nilme-
ro correspondiente a los meses de

niero MIilitar.
El Drake, uno de los camiones
anfibios mis grades del mundo, es
el sucesor del "duck" de la II Guerra
Mundial y del Superduck de despues
de la guerra de Corea.
El articulo de Grigore da informa-
ciones t6cnicas sobre el vehiculo y
describe su uso en sondeos e inves-
tigaciones de subsuelo en proyectos
de ingenieria civil. Estos proyectos
estan asociados con la construcci6n
de bahias para pequefios botes, rom-
peolas, control de inundaciones y
mantenimiento de rios y puertos.
Comandante en la Reserva Naval
de los Estados Unidos, Grigore fue
anteriormente jefe de plant, Distri-
to de Ingenieros del Ej6rcito, en
Detroit, Michigan. Official graduado
de la Marina Mercante, sirvi6 en la

tamento de Artilleria del Ejlrcito

LAS ESCLUSAS

EN "AV GUIDE"
Una fotografia a colors de las Es-
clusas de Miraflores captada por la
noche fue publicada en la cubierta
reciente de AV Guide, una revista
dedicada a peliculas educativas y a
material audio-visual.
La fotografia, que es la tercera
cubierta de cuatro colors de una
nueva series, trata sobre la contribu-
ci6n musical al Canal de Panama con
motive de su Cincuentenario. En este
caso es un Album de discos de Art
Records Inc.
El disco destaca a Lucho AzcA-
rraga en el 6rgano y su conjunto to-
cando miisica de los Estados Unidos
y Panama. El disco esta acompafiado
por un libro de 8 pAginas con mapas,
fotografias y un resume hist6rico.

El macizo de los Andes cruza a
Nicaragua, sembrando su territorio
con picos volcinicos que llegan a
3,000 y 5,000 pies. Algunos de estos
volcanoes dan muestras de actividad
de cuando en cuando. Unas tres cuar-
tas parties del pais estin sobre la ver-
tiente del Atlantico de las montafias
y una cuarta parte del lado Pacifico.
El lado Pacifico es el mas important.
A lli esta la capital, Managua, cerca
de la mitad de su poblaci6n y la
mayor parte de su agriculture.

aumentando la carga de energia
electrica para el bombeo de agua
durante la actual escasez de energia
electrica.
Solamente con el uso sensato de
agua para regar puede asegurarse un
adecuado abastecimiento de agua
para beber y finalidades sanitarias y
una reserve para combatir incendios.
HA aqui las maneras de ayudar:
1. No se riegue demasiado el
cesped y las matas.
2. No riegue entire las 10 a.m. y
2 p.m.
3. Cierre los irrigadores antes de
irse a dormir.
4. Riegue a mano las Areas difi-
ciles de irrigar-donde
gran parte del agua irri-
gada puede correr hacia
los drenajes y hacia la
calle.
5. No use demasiada agua.
Solamente su cooperaci6n asegu-
rarA un adecuado abastecimiento de
buena agua potable durante esta
estaci6n seca.
La idea de ahorrar agua en la Zona
del Canal pareciera ridicula-!uando
podemos mirar en cualquier direc-
ci6n y ver un copioso abastecimiento,
Mucha gentc no so da cuenta de
cuinta energia es necesaria para su-
plir esta agu a las casas y tambhi6n
que las capacidades de las tuberias
maestras de agua y los tanques de al-


macenamiento tienen un limited. BA-
sicamente, nuestro abastecimiento de
agua es amplio (en los lagos), pero
cuando hay un incendio, lo que sale
de una toma de agua es lo que cuenta.
Recuerde que el agua que corre
hacia la alcantarilla se desperdicia.
Durante cada estaci6n seca nos en-
frentamos a cespedes resecos y plan-
tas marchitas. La hierba raras veces
muere en el Istmo, sin embargo, por
la falta de agua. Y el riego selective
de arbustos y flores los mantendrA
vivos hasta que la estaci6n lluviosa
comience otra vez.
iPor favor, cooper!

SE AHOGA EUROPA
La cosecha de vino de 1963 en
Alemania alcanzd un volume mu-
cho mayor de lo que se habia espe-
rado. Seg6n cdlculos recientes el
52 por ciento estd a6n en las bode-
gas y una parte serd mezclada con
la de 1964, de mejor calidad.
La de 1964 serd la nueva cosecha
del siglo. No es sdlo en Alemania
done se perfila una buena cose-
cha, sino tambien en los demds pai-
ses europeos desde Francia hasta
Hungria. Francia ha recolectado
unos 61 millones de hectolitros.
Italia cuenta con pasar de los 60
millones. Segin sus informes, Es-
paiia recolectd 24 millones. Portu-
gal consigue un record con 13
millones de hectolitros. Yugoesla-
via tambidn bate su record con una
destacada cosecha de 4 millones de
hectolitros y una calidad media
muy acceptable. Tambidn los infor-
mes de Hungria son optimistas: ha
sobrepasado los 5 millones con una
calidad igualmente buena. Europa,
pues, "se ahoga" en vino, hasta el
punto de que este aiio hard una
competencia much mayor que en
el pasado.

ADMONITION A QUIENES HACEN


MAL USO DE ESTACION DE TREN

Todo estudiante que estu utilizan- ristasv estudiantes durante la hora
do la Estaci6n del Ferrocarril de Bal- de almuerzo.


boa Ieights durante la hora desti-
nada al almuerzo, debe depositar las
envolturas y los desperdicios en los
tinacos, y cerciorarse de que el Area
est& limpia, antes de regresar a la
escuela.
A menos que cese inmediatamente
el arrojar basura en la Estaci6n del
Ferrocarril, y la destrucci6n de la pro-
piedad del Gobierno en esta Area, se
prohibira terminantemente a los es-
tudiantes la entrada al lugar.
La Direcci6n de Abastos y Servi-
cios Comunales ha estado reempla-
zando las viejas instalaciones sanita-
rias e incrementando la buena apa-
riencia de los servicios de la Estaci6n
de Balboa Heights, servicios que son
usados por el piblico en general, tu-


Poco despu6s que un nuevo pro-
veedor de papel sanitario fue insta-
lado, v las paredes de los servicios
reparadas con cemento, el proveedor
de papel fue arrancado de la pared,
y el cemento nuevo resquebrajado.
Mas asin, las puertas de los servicios,
que fueron pintadas para ocultar un
bajo vocabulario y dibujos alusivos,
han sido cubiertas nuevamente con
obscenidades.
A los residents de las comunida-
des del Pacifico, se les pide que co-
operen con esta campafia de aseo, y
que prevengan a sus hijos e hijas
acerca de la violaci6n de la ley de la
Zona del Canal que prohibe la

Lucas Patifio, quien trabaja en la actualidad en la seccidn de Ingenieria Civil,
de la Direccidn de Ingenieria y Construccidn, y es estudiante del tercer afo
de la Facultad de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Panamd, encuentra su
trabajo mnuy a gusto y acomodado a su preparacidn. Se siente entire sus com-
paileros de trabajo como entire viejos conocidos. Opina que el program de
Ayudantes Estudiantiles vale la pena, ya que ayuda en la preparacidn para
un future trabajo, y permit poner en prdctica los conocimientos adquiridos
en la Universidad. Le parece que la organizaci6n del Canal es bastante com-
pleja, pero estd muy bien compaginada, cosa que la hace mds sencilla. Se ha
dado cuenta de la importancia de su secci6n dentro del mantenimiento del
Canal, ya que abarca todo lo relacionado con la Ingenieria Civil, exceptuando
las obras del Ejercito. Le agradaria trabajar nuevamente, de ser possible en
una posicidn de mayor responsabilidad.

Para los moradores de las ciuda-
des terminales en la Zona del Canal

ferio occidental. Visitada por primer
vez por Caspar de Espinosa, en 1520,

pafa contra el inddmito guerrero
Urraca. Sin embargo no fue sino hasta
el 20 de mayo lde 1522 cuando el
Gobernador Pedrarias DAvila la
fundd" oficialmente.
A fin de prcservar la cultural hispA-
nica y propalar la religion cat6lica, el
Rev Carlos V de Espana escogi6 a
mediados del siglo XVI a 100 Caba-
lleros Notorios entire families de la
mais rancia Nobleza para que se radi-
casen en NatA. De alli proviene el
nombre: NatA de los Caballeros.
En la hora present NatA es la sede
de una gran industrial establecida por
la compafiia Nestl6, que ademAs de
products lacteos, comprende el em-


paque de tomate, jugos de frutas y
