At right: This $843,950 weather-
proof steam boiler was manufactured
and is being erected by the Foster
Wheeling Co. of Livingston. N.J.,

Lira-Loaded Lad
A Canal employee going on
vacation in Europe thought he
might save a little foreign ex-
change by buying Italian lira here.
He entered a Hindu bazaar in
Colon which also does money ex-
change. An American tourist was
standing there.
The Canal Zoner asked the pro-
prietor if he had any Italian lira
for sale, and was asked how many
he needed.
"About half a million," he
replied-and the tourists' eyes
Actually, with the lira at 625 to
an American dollar, it is not such
a large sum of money. But "half
a million" sounds large in any

March Transits

Set New Record
A new traffic record was chalked up by the Panama Canal in March despite
the fact that Pedro Miguel Locks was on 1-lane operation.
At the close of business March 31, a total of 1,120 ships of more than 300
Panama Canal net tons had passed from sea to sea and the daily traffic
average had reached a record 36.1 ships.
This bumper crop of oceangoing ships was accommodated by the Panama
Canal on a 24-hour a day schedule.

many with the assistance of a tug.
The previous single month "clear cut"
record was 203 ships in May 1964.
The surge of shipping arriving at
the Canal for transit in March was
caused partly by the end of the east
coast stevedore strike and partly by
the seasonal increase in world ship-
ping which makes nearly every March
a big traffic month for the Panama
Although the strike caused a de-
crease in transits during the month of
February, an average of 30.14 ships
a day passed through the waterway
during the 28 days of the month. This
was somewhat under the 33.9 in
December 1964 and the 33.6 in
November 1964. The previous high
daily average of 35.8 was set in
March 1964.
Offsetting the record transits pic-
ture, however, were some sobering
financial facts:
The dock strike in the United
States cost the Panama Canal about
$1 million in lost tolls. There is no
way to recover this "lost million."

April 9, 1965

EDITOn's NOTE: Following is part of
a statement on the role of exercise in
fitness by a joint committee of the
American Medical Association and the
American Association for Health,
Physical Education, and Recreation,
endorsed by the Health Bureau and
Canal Zone Schools Division.

As far as can be determined at the
present time, the comparison of the
life histories of those who maintain a
relatively higher degree of fitness
through the nature of their work or
through other activities seems to in-
dicate that they suffer less degenera-
tive disease and probably live longer
than those who follow a sedentary
Obesity, muscle atrophy, cardio-
vascular inefficiency, joint stiffness,
and impairment of various metabolic
functions are possible effects of pro-

longed inactivity. Sudden cessation
of work activity in older individuals,
as sometimes happens on retirement,
often seems to lead to rapid physical
degeneration if no substitute activity
is provided.
Regular exercise is not considered
to help retard the onset or further
progress of diabetes, for example,
and man's most common threat to
There is no longer any doubt but
that the level of physical activity
does play a major role in weight
control. Maintaining a good caloric
balance between dietary intake and
energy output requires a sound
approach to both food consumption
and exercise.
There is some evidence to suggest
that exercise has a beneficial effect on
metabolic functions that combat obe-
sity, in addition to burning calories.
The high mortality rate associated
with being overweight suggests
that obesity contributes to organic
The relation of physical activity to
mental health should not be over-
looked; from this standpoint, the
ability to be engrossed in play is
basic. Pleasurable exercise relieves
tension and encourages habits of con-
tinued activity. In fact, muscular
effort is probably one of the best
antidotes for emotional stress.

Individual and

Environmental Factors
Advanced age, in itself, is not a
contraindication to exercise, but ac-
tually an indication for it. Precluding

accidents, a healthy person of any
age will do himself no permanent
harm by suitable physical activity.
Evidence as to the effect of exercise
on digestion indicates that physical
exertion does not necessarily interfere
with the digestive process.
Vigorous outdoor exercise under
conditions of high temperature (over
80) and high humidity (80-100 per-
cent) should be limited to short pe-
riods of about 1 hour with rest inter-
vals and planned intake of small
amounts of fluid. If such conditions of
climate can be anticipated, extra salt
mav be added to food at mealtimes.
No harm to normal menstrual func-
tion has been shown to result from
vigorous exercise. In fact, exercise
can be beneficial in relieving certain
types of menstrual pain which are
common in young women. Whether
exercise is continued as usual should
depend on the individual's menstrual
experience and reaction to physical

Newly promoted Fire Capt. Kenneth T. Daly (center) has his shiny new
captain's badge pinned on by Mrs. Daly in a brief ceremony in the Mount
Hope Fire Station. At left is Capt. J. A. Taber, Cristobal District Fire Com-
mander. Captain Daly, who now is Station Commander at the Mount Hope
Fire Station, has been with the Panama Canal Fire Division since 1942. All
his service has been in the Cristobal district. (Additional pictures in
Spanish section.)


Now it's Fire Lt. Matthew J. Wilder, who is promoted from the rank of
sergeant. Frances D. Jones, Administrative Assistant, Fire Division, is shown
pinning on his new badge. Lieutenant Wilder, who is stationed in the Balboa
Fire District, has been with the Panama Canal's Fire Division since
May 1951.

The New York Times reports that the Guild of Lady Drivers in London
has issued an indignant protest aimed at long-haired young male operators
whose bad driving habits reflect on women when they are not recognized
as men. The Times does not say whether the ladies want the youths to
reform or get a haircut.

Four of the five PanCanal employees who completed 45 units of the Spanish course taught under the Employee
Development Program exchange handshakes after they were presented certificates of completion at a ceremony in
the conference room of the Administration Building recently. The two at left are Earl Dailey, of the Electrical Divi-
sion, and Nelson Wise, of the Engineering and Construction Bureau. Shaking hands at right are George Lowe,
of the Locks Division, and John Fischer, of the Port Captain's Office. Center is Mrs. Frances Arnold, instructor for
the class. Not in the photo was Mrs. Hedwig Chavez, of the Port Captain's Office, who also completed the 45 units.

16 PanCanal Employ

Join Retirement List

Sixteen Panama Canal employees
retiring last month were honored at
a ceremony held in the Board Room
of the Administration Building,
Balboa Heights.
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr.,
touched on the fact that he had had
many problems in the past 3 years,
but never had to worry about the
operation of the Panama Canal. The
reason the Canal operates so well is
the skill, and the devotion, of the
people connected with all phases of
the Canal operation, he pointed out.
"In bidding you goodby," said Gov-
ernor Fleming, "on behalf of all my
fellow Americans, I thank you."
The most Canal service, of the four
men present, was held by Leo J.
Eberenz, supervisory storekeeper in
the Locks Division, who retired after
33 years, 10 months, 7 days with the
Canal organization. He was born in
Fort Thomas, Ky., and came to the
Isthmus with his family in 1908 when
only 5 years of age. He was a grad-
uate of Cristobal High School in the
class of 1923 and worked for the
Canal during school vacations before
starting full-time employment. He
was with the Locks Division since
1934. Mr. and Mrs. Eberenz will visit
the United States in July, but will
return to the Isthmus. Mrs. Eberenz
is employed as a nurse with the
Health Bureau and plans to continue
working for a while.
Next in length of service was
William L. Bingham, Chief, Power
Plant (Hydro), of the Electrical Di-
vision, whose service of more than 23
years has all been with the same divi-
sion. He was born in Camden, N.J.,
but when he and Mrs. Bingham leave
the Isthmus at the end of May their
destination will be Sun Valley, Calif.
Julio Correa and Otilio Obando,
stevedores with the Terminals Divi-
sion, were the other two retiring em-
ployees present. Correa's 23-plus
years of service were all with the
Terminals Division. He was born in
Cartagena, Colombia. He plans to
live in Colon. Obando also was born
in Colombia. He plans to reside in
Panama City.

mis de 300 toneladas netas del Canal
de PanamA habian pasado de oc6ano
a oc6ano y el promedio diario de

36.1 barcos.
Este crecido n6mero de barcos de
alto calado fue acomodado por el
Canal de PanamA en un itinerario de
24 horas al dia.

de una cimara del sector Pacifico fue
cerrada durante la primera parte del

36.1 POR DIA

"El credito es todo de ustedes."
Es el criteria que prevalece en la
Division de Navegaci6n al igual
que en la de Esclusas con res-
pecto a los empleados encargados
de Imanejo del alto volume de
trdnsitos registrados el mes pasado.
El encomio del Capitdn M. J.
Prince, jefe de la Direcci6n de
Marina, dice:
"Esta hazaha fuie possible gracias
a que ustedes establecieron un
nuevo hito en la ejecucidn de sus
funciones, de lo cual pueden sen-
tirse justamente orgullosos. Lo
logrado por ustedes da nuevo bri-
llo a la reputaci6n universal del
Canal de Panamd como la empresa
mds eficiente de su tipo en el
"Quiero felicitar a cada uno de
vosotros por su valiosa contribu-
ci6n a este impresionante record."

1,084 fueron barcos mercantes,'28 de
propiedad del Gobierno de los Esta-
dos Unidos y 8 fueron clasificados
como de libre trAnsito.
Hubo tambien marca de 209 bar-
cos de un tamaiio y tipo que hizo
necesario enviarlos a travis del Corte
Gaillard con preferencia de "paso
libre," muchos de.ellos con la ayuda
de un remolcador. La marca anterior
de un solo mes para "paso libre" fue
de 203 barcos en mayo de 1964.
La oleada de barcos llegando al
Canal para transitar en el mes de
marzo fue causada en parte al ter-
minar la huelga de estibadores de la
costa oriental y en parte por el incre-
mento en la navegaci6n mundial que
convierte casi cada marzo un gran
mes de trAfico para el Canal de
Aunque la huelga caus6 un des-
censo en trAnsitos durante el mes de
febrero, un promedio de 30.14 bar-
cos pasaron diariamente a travis de
la via acuitica durante los 28 dias
del mes. Esto es un poco por debajo
de los 33.9 en diciembre de 1964 y
los 33.6 en noviembre del mismo afio.
El promedio diario anterior mAs alto
de 35.8 fue impuesto en marzo de
En contrast con el panorama de
marcas de trAnsito, sin embargo, hubo
la siguiente situaci6n financiera:
La huelga portuaria en los Estados
Unidos cost al Canal de PanamA
alrededor de $1 mill6n en peajes per-
didos. No hay manera de recuperar
este "mill6n perdido."
El cost de las reparaciones del
piso de una de las cAmaras de las
Esclusas de Pedro Miguel, un gasto
no previsto, llegara a mis de medio
mill6n de d61lares.
El cost de mantenimiento de la
ruta del Canal tambi6n esti sobre
los estimados presupuestados, con
una cantidad de factors que no fue-
ron previstos y que contribuyeron al
sobregiro. Entre estos estaba la remo-
ci6n de un derrumbe al norte de las
Esclusas de Pedro Miguel en el Corte
Gaillard, un dragado acelerado debi-
do a la irregular estaci6n seca y el
alquiler de una draga para el dra-
gado de mantenimiento en la secci6n
de 300 pies del Corte Gaillard.
Estos estuvieron entire los princi-
pales costs imprevistos e incontro-
lables que se espera lleguen a mAs
de $3 millones, reduciendo en igual
suma los fondos disponibles para

L C on Dos Campeones: Una CoronaL RETRDOR

dRetendrd la corona?

Noblesse oblige, y fiel a su palabra el campe6n mundial de los pesos ligeros subird mafiana
al tinglado del Estadio Olimpico de Panama para poner en juego su corona frente al aspirante
panamefio, Ismael Laguna.
Carlos Ortiz se manifiesta mis seguro de si que nunca antes; mAs confiado en la contun-
dencia de sus pufios y en sus ilimitados recursos pugilisticos para salir avante en su dificil
compromise contra un contrincante del cartel del idolo de la aficion panamefia.
"Entrari al ring como un monarca y saldrA de 61 como todo un rey," dicen con serenidad
sus apoderados.
Por su parte el retador da la sensaci6n de la mas ecuinime seguridad en que el cetro de las
135 libras quedard en PanamA cuando finalice el pleito a 15 asaltos fijado para mafiana.
Laguna se ha entrenado concienzudamente y esta en lo que podria llamarse el apogeo de
sus condiciones fisicas.
EstA pegando mAs recio que nunca, sin que por ello haya sufrido en nada su rapidez y agili-
dad. Verlo entrenar era salir convencido de su invencibilidad. Verlo desempefiarse en el cuadri-
lAtero es siempre algo que reafirma a la afici6n en su entusiasmo por el arte del pugilato.
Comedido, caballeroso, reservado, Ismael Laguna no desciende a los desplantes alabancio-
sos ni a la jactancia pueril. Lo que tiene que probar es labor que encomienda a sus pufios, a su
mirada certera, al constant bombardeo de golpes que sabe colocar donde mayor dafio puedan
ocasionar a su rival.
El encuentro de mafiana, es pues, el de dos campeones. Y el de dos caballeros del tinglado.
El uno es el monarca indiscutible de la categoria. El otro tiene la categoria de los monarcas.
Por eso se enfrentarAn dos paladines asiduos de la gloria. Dos gladiadores siempre triun-
fantes. Porque tanto el uno cuanto el otro triunfan cada vez que suben al cuadrilAtero, ganen o
pierdan el compromise. Triunfan porque dan lo mejor de si. Triunfan por su virtuosismo.
La afici6n local tendrA, pues, mafiana la oportunidad de admirar, como queda dicho, a dos
campeones, frente a frente, enfrascados ambos en una lucha sin cuartel; limpia pero implacable;
ruda y definitive.
EstAn en juego nada menos que un cetro y dos reputaciones.

John J. Cusick Abandona la Division de Transporte Maritimo

John J. Cusick, jefe de la Divisi6n agent general de la organizaci6n
de Transporte Maritimo del Canal de canalera en Puerto Principe, Haiti, y
PanamA ha dimitido su cargo para habia estado en el despacho de Cris-
aceptar otro en Houston, Texas. t6bal desde 1961.
Cusick sirvi6 anteriormente como Nativo de Brighton, Massachusetts,


Una corrida de toros a beneficio de la Ciudad del Nifio, obra en la
cual estA empefiada la Primera Dama de la Rep6blica de Panama, Dofia
Petita SaA de Robles, se llevarA a cabo el domingo pr6ximo en la Plaza
de Toros "La Macarena" en San Francisco de la Caleta.
En esta corrida actuary el mundialmente famoso matador espafiol
Luis Miguel Dominguin, quien aunque retirado de los ruedos, ha
ofrecido sus servicios gratuitamente para cooperar con la obra bendfica.
Cinco toros de la famosa hacienda mexicana "Coaxamalucan" han sido
traidos al Istmo para ser lidiados en la corrida del domingo. Todos los
residents de la Zona del Canal quedan invitados para asistir a esta monu-
mental corrida de toros, en la cual veran en acci6n al mis famoso
matador espafiol de los 6ltimos tiempos.
La Ciudad del Nifio serA construida en la poblaci6n de La Chorrera
con el objeto de brindar a nifios huerfanos y desamparados, entire las
edades de 6 y 10 afios, un modo de vida que reemplace la vida de hogar
que un nifio en esas condiciones podria disfrutar en condiciones normales.
Entre otras actividades del Patronato Pro Ciudad del Nifio, se anuncia
la future presentaci6n, tambien en la Plaza "La Macarena," del famoso
artist mexicano Mario Moreno "Cantinflas," en una corrida bufa.
