Vol. IV, No. 22 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, November 19, 1965


Let for


A contract for construction of a
new $600,000 harbor tug has been
awarded by the Panama Canal to the
Southern Shipbuilding Corp. of
Slidell, La.
The new tug, to be delivered in
June 1966, will be the first of several
replacement tugs to be purchased by
the Panama Canal in the next few
years to handle ships for the Naviga-
tion Division in the terminal harbors
and replace old and outmoded
floating equipment.
The first will replace the tug
Gatun built in 1937 in the former
Mechanical Division in Balboa and
which is now in service in Balboa.
The second tug will be ordered next
year for delivery in 1967.
A modified version of the highly
successful U.S. Navy YTB 760 class
harbor tug, the new craft is the result
of a coordinated study of Panama
Canal needs by the Navigation Divi-
sion and the Industrial Division
under the direction of the Marine
It will be 109 feet in overall length
with a beam of 29 feet and a fully
loaded displacement of 536 long
tons. Although powered by a 2,000
horsepower engine, this tug will have
greater pulling power than the
Canal's 2,400 horsepower tugs
because of the new type of under-
water hull design.
The name selected for this latest
addition to the fleet is Hugh Rodman,
in honor of the Canal's first Marine
Superintendent. It will be the first
tug built for the Panama Canal since
1961, when the three 2,400 horse-
power tugs were delivered by the
Diamond Manufacturing Co. of
Savannah, Ga.
These tugs, named after the three
successive chief engineers associated
with the construction of the Canal,
are the George W. Goethals, the John
F. Wallace and the John F. Stevens.

Two venerable Canal Zone cot-
tages built in 1917 will go up in
smoke-literally-as the climax of a
firefighting training program started
this week by the Canal Zone Fire
Division. The tests include use of
various types of water fog and foam,
methods of opening a structure to
fight fires and to effect ventilation.
A special demonstration under the
direction of Fire Chief W. G. Dolan
will be held November 29 with
members of the Panama Fire Depart-
ment and visiting firemen from Latin
American countries being invited to
observe and take part. Final destruc-
tion of the houses by controlled
burning will take place shortly
before Christnias. The two cottages,
located off Balboa Road on Edwards
Place, are being demolished to make
room for new construction.

Floating Scientific

Lab Transits Canal
The Atlantis II, one of the world's best equipped and most versatile deep-
sea laboratories, passed through the Canal last week on the last lap of a
50,000 mile scientific mission which is taking her around the world.
Loaded with scientific specimens from the sea around us, the $4 million
research vessel, owned and operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institution, was on her way home to Massachusetts after taking part in the

International Indian Ocean Expedi-
tion and the Cooperative Kuroshic
Investigations (a current similar to
the Atlantic Gulf Stream) in coopera-
tion with Japanese Oceanographers.
It was the first time a Woods Hole
ship had circumnavigated the globe
and the first trip through the Canal
for the Atlantis II.
When she arrived in Balboa, there
were 8 scientists aboard headed by
Chief Scientist Arthur R. Miller, and
a crew of 31 officers and men. Most
of the scientists were staying on
board for the trip back to Woods
Hole. They expected to arrive in
plenty of time for Thanksgiving.
Capt. Emerson H. Miller, master
of the air conditioned floating labora-
tory, expressed deep interest in the
work being done aboard the ship
although he was quick to point out

the Atlantis II is marked on the chart

of the vessel.

In addition to several laboratories
fitted with outlets for special utilities
such as fresh water, sea water, elec-
tricity, oxygen, and other gases, the
ship has several controlled tempera-
ture aquaria which permit the scien-
tific party to keep alive various
species of marine life. A bulbous
underwater observation chamber
located at the bow is equipped with
six viewing ports through which
scientists may observe fish and other
marine life while under way.

and answers

May I make a right turn against a
red traffic light?-Yes, but you must
first come to a full stop, and you
must not interfere with the move-
ment of other traffic in the inter-
section. You must yield the right
of way to vehicular and pedestrian
traffic in the intersection.

Is there any special law regarding
passing schoolbuses?-Yes. When a
schoolbus is stopped on the high-
way for the purpose of picking up
or discharging passengers, and is
flashing two red lights, you must
stop at least 10 feet from the bus,
regardless of the direction you are
traveling. You must remain stop-
ped until the bus moves on, or
until a policeman or crossing
guard, or the bus driver signals to
you to proceed, or the flashing red
lights are no longer activated.

It's a "Glittering Canal",

. . We're Just Used to It

"Glittering Canal" is the descrip-
tion given the Panama Canal by
Gilbert Love, who writes for the
Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) Press.
Leonard M. Ruppel of Balboa,
who received the clipping of the
article from the States, brought it to
the SPILLWAY and remarked that
people who see the Canal every day
of their lives often have to see the
magnitude of the engineering marvel
through the eyes of visitors.

DeMolay Installation

Scheduled for Tonight
Duke Wilson will be installed as
Master Councilor of the Pacific
Chapter Order of DeMolay at an
open installation to be held at the
Scottish Rite Temple at 7:30 p.m.
The Reverend Clarence Payne of
Balboa Union Church will conduct
the installation and David A. Speir,
Supervisor of Secondary Education,
will be the guest speaker.

Describing a Canal transit, the
writer said "The ship was running
slowly along a narrow, curving
waterway with high hills on both
sides. This was outlined, as far as
we could see in either direction, by
thousands of floodlights faced away
from it and illuminating the jungle
growth at the bases of the hills.
"With a red-and-green navigation
light here and there, the illuminated
water path looked like something
created for a World's Fair or a
Disneyland. We were told that the
floodlights were installed a few years
ago as an additional navigation aid
because traffic through the Canal has
become so heavy. But they have
created beauty that kept most of our
passengers on the dark top deck of
the ship for the rest of the evening.
"I found the entire Panama Canal
far more impressive than I had
expected-having thought of it as
something akin to the lock and dam
system on the Ohio River, only
bigger. The relationship is fairly

On the Isthmus

By Donald Robinson I

Air Conditioning and You

Perhaps you remember that several
months ago we talked about "accli-
matization" to heat.
We don't suffer heat exhaustion
or stroke in the tropics because of
acclimatization: a remarkable phy-
siologic set of changes that takes
place within us. Put us in a con-
sistently high "effective" tempera-
ture and leave us there and within
10 days our blood has "thinned," our
sweat has "changed" and our body
temperature remains more stable if
we work.
Acclimatization, incidentally, shows
up almost exclusively during work.
One need not acclimatize to a siesta!
So I got to thinking. I use the
first person pronoun specifically,
now, months later, because-ask
about, read, research-I have yet to
find anyone else who asked the
specific question I did.
Does air conditioning upset accli-
If we spend 8-20 hours in an air
conditioned office and house, are we
more subject to heat injury during
the 4-8 hours we move around out-
side? More subject to injury, that is,
than if we spent 24 hours a day in
non air conditioned environment.
My original postulations, hypothetic
thinking, was "probably." Why not?
I even fancied a "differential" for
working in air conditioned offices.
I envisioned the cheers of the masses
when I announced this. And also my
long cold search in the arctic for
a new job.
So my search began.
I found acclimatization to cold,
virtually unknown 15 years ago, sky-
rocketing in popularity. I found one
can be cold and not shiver. I dis-
covered all sorts of new fangled ways
to measure heat, to discover chemical
changes in the tiny cells of the body
because of heat.
But nowhere did I discover spe-
cifically the effect of air condition-
ing. Where one moves from a hot to
a cold climate; or where experimen-
tally one is put in either temperature
extreme; changes were well docu-
mented. But where one climate
existed outside and one inside and
the individual dove back and forth
between them: what?
Ultimately I did discover a report
of a U.S. Army study done in

First, 4 teams of men spent 6 days
training at a specific task: walking
3-5 miles an hour on a treadmill.
Then they were all placed in an arti-
ficial, hot climate. The effective
temperature of the artificial climate
was above ours here at the ninth
All the body functions were meas-
ured, particularly the temperature
which rises in non-acclimatized per-
sons who do hard work.
Some of the subjects walked one
period of 50 minutes, some one
period of 100 minutes, some two
periods of 50, or 100 minutes, per
day. The test lasted 9 days.
The men who walked 100 minutes
once or twice a day acclimatized
markedly better than the men walk-
ing 50-minute intervals. But all
moved physiologically toward accli-
But then the part which suggested
an answer to my question about air
conditioning. The subjects were
taken out of the hot climate for
periods of 3, 5, and 8 days.
On returning to the hot climate,
everyone on the first day of the re-
exposure demonstrated acclimatiza-
tion equal to that which he had
achieved before he left the hot
So we can conclude that once one
is acclimatized, 3-8 days in a cool
climate will not destroy his acclima-
I must admit this has not answered
specifically whether or not 16 hours
in cool and 8 hours in hot each day
or any other combination of hot and
cool each day causes specifically the
same response in our bodies.
Inferring from the data I see one
possible area which might call for
caution. Our ladies, who either type
in an office or do housework in air
conditioned offices or homes, and
then relax in air conditioned homes;
theirs or someone else's; they might
feel heat stress during those several
hours they ventured forth to shop or,
or . what would ladies venture
forth to?

In a Dominican Republic town
called Seibo there is a Catholic
Church whose walls are covered with
Arabic tiles. Each one bears the in-
scription: "There is but one Cod,
and Mohamet is his prophet."

saba a su puerto en Massachusetts,
luego de haber tornado parte en la
Expedici6n Internacional al Oc6ano
Indico y en las Investigaciones Co-
operativas de la Corriente Kuroshic
(una corriente similar a la del Golfo
en el AtlAntico), en cooperaci6n con
ocean6grafos japoneses. Es la pri-
mera vez que un barco de la insti-
tuci6n le da la vuelta al globo y
la primera vez que el Atlantis II
transitaba el Canal.
Cuando lleg6 a Balboa, habia
ocho cientificos a bordo, bajo la di-
recci6n de Arthur R. Miller, Cienti-
fico Jefe, con 31 miembros de la
tripulaci6n. La mayor parte de los
cientificos regresan a Woods Hole a
bordo de la nave. Esperan llegar a
casa antes del Dia de Acci6n de
El CapitAn Emerson H. Hiller,
comandante de este laboratorio flo-
tante y con aire acondicionado, estA
sumamente interesado en la labor de
los cientificos, pero hizo notar que
61 es marino nada mAs.
AdemAs de varies laboratories mo-
dernos completes, el barco tiene
varies acuarios de temperature con-
trolada, que permiten conservar
vivas raras species de vida marina.
Una camara de observaci6n, en for-
ma de bulbo, colocada a proa, cuenta
con seis ventanales que permiten a
los cientificos observer peces y
demAs animals marines mientras la
nave se encuentra navegando.
Algo que se guard con orgullo a
bordo es una placa otorgada al barco
por la Armada de Estados Unidos,
en reconocimiento de los servicios
que el Atlantis II prest6 en ]a b6s-
queda del desdichado submarine
Thresher. En ese entonces era el
inico barco cientifico que estaba en
las cercanias y le toc6 hacer trabajo
hidrografico; marc6 ademas las posi-
ciones y tom6 fotografias.
El Atlantis II, la nave n6mero dos
operada por la Instituci6n Oceano-
grafica Woods Hole con este nombre,
fue disefiado, construido y equipado
para prestar el mas eficiente servicio

Peligro Para Lanchas

Y Esquiadores Debido

A Troncos a la Deriva

Resistencia a la Seguridad

Aun cuando es socialmente deseable estar "contra el pecado" hay
muchos pecadores. De la misma forma, los trabajadores tienen la
tendencia a considerar la seguridad como "deseable", pero no siempre
aplicable a ellos mismos. El "no puede sucederme a mi", aun cuando
se expresa muy raramente a menudo se piensa, como si uno tuviera
un Angel guardiAn o su habilidad es tan superior que puede evitar
cualquier riesgo potential. Se dice a menudo que los ex pecadores
son los mejores predicadores y a menudo los individuos mis activos
en la prevenci6n de accidents son los que han sido victims del
El resistir las reglas de seguridad no significa necesariamente una
actitud agresiva o de desafio. El observarlas limita la libertad de
acci6n y toda restricci6n aparentemente implica un insulto a la
individualidad. Generalmente a cada uno le agrada tomar sus propias
decisions, como asimismo tener la sensaci6n de que sabe que es lo
mas seguro para si mismo.
Las acciones individuals se encuentran restringidas de muchas
maneras: "no fumar", tarjetas de tiempo, requerimientos de produc-
ci6n y demands de la sociedad. La no observancia de las reglas de
seguridad no significa necesariamente rebeli6n contra la autoridad,
sino rebeli6n contra la implicaci6n de que uno no es capaz de juzgar
Otra raz6n por la cual los trabajadores resisten o rechazan las
reglas de seguridad es el hecho de que ellas estin relacionadas
con algo que generalmente no produce satisfacci6n inmediata: el
trabajo. Por otra parte, los resultados positives de esta observancia
generalmente no se ven. Se pueden ver los efectos de no observarlas,
pero no los beneficios de hacerlo. El temor a una herida, a menudo
no es tan grande como la anticipaci6n de una recompensa.
gPara qu6 sufrir la incomodidad del equipo de seguridad personal
sin tenet una recompensa inmediata? se dice a menudo. Y despu6s
de todo, 8qu6 se gana con usarlo si con ser cuidadoso es suficiente?
El otro factor que produce una reacci6n negative en los trabaja-
dores es el echo de que los jefes no den el ejemplo. El hecho de
que alg6n superior no use el equipo de protecci6n adecuado donde
sea requerido, Ileva al trabajador a career que 61 tambi6n puede
hacerlo, sin detenerse a pensar de que si aqu6l se esti arriesgando,
61 no tiene por qu6 arriesgarse.
Pese a todas las reflexiones anteriores el trabajador no resisted la
seguridad como tal, de alli la importancia de hacerle entender la
raz6n de ser de 6sta, a fin de que se imponga a la sensaci6n de que
uno no es capaz de juzgar por si mismo.
