THE PANAMA CANAL Gift the Panama CanalMuseum


Vol. IV, No. 32 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, January 28, 1966

Flash! Back tC
Once again asbestos proved its
effectiveness as a fire-resistant mate-
rial when it was used during a test
to determine the ability of a poly-
ethylene boom to contain burning oil
on the water surface. The test was
conducted by the Panama Canal
Marine Bureau Locks Division in the
presence of Canal Zone and Repub-
lic of Panama fire officials, and a
visiting fire department official of
Costa Rica.
* The test showed the floating polye-
thylene boom is effective in contain-
ing spilled oil on the water surface
but, as constructed, proved ineffec-
tive in containing an oil fire for more
than a few minutes.
The boom, described as a pipe
with a fin on it, was 6-inch diameter
foamed polyethylene, 100 feet long,
with 9-foot lengths of the boom
secured 1 foot apart to a continuous
sheet plastic strip or fin. For the test
one section was covered with asbes-
tos cloth, another with aluminum
foil, a third was covered with alu-
minum paint, the remainder tested in
"as is" condition. The asbestos cover-
ing of the boom proved to be the
only effective measure of the four.
Canal Zone Fire Division per-
sonnel and equipment were at the
site to ignite the fire, apply and dis-
sipate the foam, and extinguished the
fire when the boom failed to contain
the burning oil.
Present from Panama were: Col.
Luis C. Endara, First Chief of the
Panama Fire Department; Lt. Col.
Ernesto Arosemena, second chief;
and Lt. Col. Gilberto M. AlemIn,
third chief. Commandant Guillermo
Solano of the San Jose, Costa Rica,
fire department, also was a guest at
the test site.

Big Street

Dance Set

For Feb. 9
With the race for Pacific Side
Queen of the Canal Zone Carnival
a top question this week, the stage
is set for a street dance at the last
vote count Wednesday, February 9.
At the vote count Thursday night,
an ever growing number of followers
watched as officials counted the
votes. Many danced as the music of
the 79th Army Band Murga filled
the air at Stevens Circle.
The last vote count will be the
most exciting, with the parking lot
at Balboa Retail Store roped off for
the event.
There will be music of a conjunto
in addition to the 79th Army Band
Murga. Hot dogs will be sold, along
with sodas and other refreshments.
For the most original costume, a
special prize has been set aside. The
couple attending the gay dance in
the most original costumes will be
furnished a reserved table for six at
the Panama Hilton Hotel on the last,
big night of carnival and the prize in-
cludes refreshments for the evening.
The Carnival Committee, with
Scotty Robison as Street Dance
Chairman, and Dr. Teddy Arias as
co-chairman, emphasized that origi-
nality is the important factor.
All of the Carnival Queen candi-
dates will be at the dance, and one
will be named queen after the count.
This special event is designed to
bring greater public participation to
the Carnival season.

charm, color, and nostalgia which
make the book rewarding reading.
A Flight of Birds is a novel quite
different from earlier works of fiction
by veteran writer Cecil Roberts. The

birds in the story are a gre

rigar, a swallow, a parrot, a pelican,
a bluebird, and a robin. Each forms
a part of the recurring pattern built
around the novel's human characters,
the owners of the birds. Six different
locales are used-the native habitat
of the birds in each particular story.
This story is involved but entertain-

dents; and for adults returning to
college for degrees or for special
courses. It is designed to help the
student to understand and adjust to
the changes and trends in his subject

College Board

Dates March 5,

May 7, July 9

Canal Zone and Panama residents
who plan to attend Canal Zone Col-
lege next fall should take the College
Entrance Examination Board Scho-
lastic Aptitude Test March 5, May 7,
or July 9. The test is required of all
full-time students and all part-time
students who take more than six
semester credits.
The test is also required of appli-
cants to most colleges and universi-
ties in the United States.
Because of the time required for
correction and evaluation of the
tests, and because of the fact that
many people will be away from the
Canal Zone during the summer
months, it is recommended that the
test be taken on March 5 by college
applicants who have not previously
taken it. The test has been given
twice previously this year, on Decem-
ber 5 and January 8.
The tests will be given at Balboa
High School on the Pacific side and
at Cristobal High School in Coco
Solo on the Atlantic side. Descrip-
tive materials and application blanks
are available from the offices in both
high schools and from Canal Zone
College, and may be obtained by
writing, telephoning, or coming to
the school. Applications are sent
directly to the College Entrance
Examination Board, Box 592, Prince-
ton, N.J., 08540. The cost of the
test is $4.50.
The normal deadline for applica-
tion for the tests is 1 month 'before
the test date, so applications for the
March 5 test should be in Princeton
by February 5. Test applications will
be accepted until February 19 in

Es possible que los trabajos de re-

de la valvula experimental, se efec-

occidental durante el period de
3 semanas en que dicha via estarA

A pesar de que las Esclusas de

mas 3 semanas, el transito a trav6s
del Canal ha seguido un ritmo efi-
ciente y libre de obstaculos, tar-
dando los barcos un promedio de s6lo
13 horas en aguas del Canal.
Este promedio es impresionante
si se tiene en cuenta que ademas de

De acuerdo con las estadisticas y
la opinion de Robert J. Huntoon, de
91 afios, pocas personas mueren des-
pu6s de los 90, porque la mayoria
ha muerto much antes de cumplir
esa edad.
La Repiiblica de PanamA iba para
su segundo afio cuando Huntoon y
otros 11 plomeros abordaron un
vapor en Nueva York y vinieron a
trabajar con la Comisi6n Istmica del
Canal, en 1905. En esos dias se pro-
gresaba poco en la excavaci6n. Se
estaba tratando de convertir el Istmo
en un lugar adecuado para vivir y
trabajar. A pesar de que se habia
logrado much en cuanto a sanea-
miento, a los 6 meses todos sus cole-
gas habian muerto de fiebre amarilla,
malaria y otras enfermedades. El
tambi6n tuvo fiebre amarilla pero fue
de los pocos afortunados que sobre-
Huntoon naci6 en Chitteden, Ver-
mont, en 1875, de una familiar cono-
cida por su longevidad. Uno de sus
abuelos lleg6 a los 113 afios y una tia
a los 102.
Una de sus abuelas era espiritista
muy conocida. Tenia un hotel donde
se congregaban mediums que Ilega-
ban desde lugares tan lejanos como
Londres y Paris. Fue durante una de
esas reuniones de espiritistas donde
uno de los mediums ingleses se enca-
rifi6 con uno de los hijitos de la duefia
del hotel y el nifio fue enviado a
estudiar a Inglaterra.
El joven regres6 al final de su edu-
caci6n y vestido al estilo ingles, lle-
vaba siempre un sombrero de copa
que constituia blanco perfect para
los niiios del pequeflo pueblo de
Nueva Inglaterra, que siempre le
estaban lanzando piedras. Su nombre
era John Eddy, quien en 1886 fue
C6nsul General de Estados Unidos
en PanamA. Muri6 de fiebre amarilla
y esta enterrado en Mount Hope.
El espiritu de aventura de Hun-
toon fue encendido por las historias
de PanamA que contaba su tio John.
Despu6s de haber peleado en la
Guerra Hispanoamericana, Huntoon
estaba listo para ir a Panami.
Durante sus primeros 3 afios en el
Istmo, Huntoon trabaj6 para el De-
partamento de Construcci6n. Luego
fue trasladado al Departamento de
Salubridad donde permaneci6 hasta
1914. Asignado al viejo Hospital
Col6n, trabaj6 en todos los hospita-
les, incluso el lazareto y el sanatorio
de Taboga. Los hospitals eran luga-
res sumamente ocupados en esos
dias y 61 no solo hacia trabajo de
Ayud6 a embalsamar cuerpos que
se iban a enviar a los Estados Unidos,

ayud6 en operaciones y autopsias.
Adquiri6 tanta experiencia en estos
trabajos que pudo salvarle la vida a
un marino. En 1911, rumbo a Nueva
York a bordo de un barco de la
Panama Line, oper6 de apendicitis a
un marinero del barco que de otra
manera hubiera muerto. La cocina
sirvi6 de sal6n de operaciones y luego
todos los detalles fueron publicados
por el New York Times.
Huntoon no era de los que se que-
daban ociosos en sus horas de des-
canso. Durante la 6poca de los fran-
ceses el matadero quedaba en la
playa, muy cerca del Hospital Col6n.
Los desperdicios de la matanza eran
arrojados al mar, pero ciertos resi-
duos eventualmente aparecian en la
playa. Huntoon recogi6 enormes can-
tidades de dientes de animals en la
playa y pronto los "Dientes de Toro
de PanamA" se hicieron populares en
los Estados Unidos como cabeza de
alfires de sombrero y tambi6n como
dijes en las leontinas de los caballe-
ros. Vendi6ndolos a $1 cada uno, o a
tres por $2, pronto hizo una pequefia
fortune que invirti6 en la compra de
Bonos de la Libertad. En realidad,
fue el empleado de la Zona del Canal
que compr6 mas bonos durante la
I Guerra Mundial y como premio,
fue el primer civil que vol6 a travis
del Istmo.
En 1916, Huntoon se compr6 un
"Italia", considerado el segundo
autom6vil que lleg6 a PanamA. Pag6
por 61 con bonos del Gobierno y
todavia lo conserve. Fue uno de los
primeros empleados en llevarse con-
sigo su autom6vil a los Estados Uni-
dos para las vacaciones. La familiar
Huntoon era envidiada por muchos
cuando desembarcaban y partisan en
su "Italia".
En 1921, Huntoon dej6 la Zona
del Canal y regres6 a Estados Uni-
dos. Regres6 al Canal de PanamA
en 1923 y trabaj6 para la antigua
Division de Construcciones, luego
convertida en la present Divisi6n
de Abastos, donde trabaj6 hasta su
jubilaci6n, en 1937.
Al present, vive solo en una casa
de campo de tres pisos y de 16 cuar-
tos, en Rutland, Vermont. Se cocina

Para Combatir un Incendio

Nada Mejor que el Asbesto

Una vez mas el asbesto demostr6
su efectividad como material a prue-
ba de fuego, durante una prueba
para determinar la habilidad de una
pieza de polietileno para contener
aceite hirviendo en la superficie del
agua. La prueba fue efectuada por
la Division de Esclusas, de la Direc-
ci6n de Marina del Canal de PanamA,
en presencia de funcionarios de los
Cuerpos de Bomberos de PanamA y
la Zona del Canal y de un official de
los bombers de Costa Rica.
La prueba demostr6 que una pieza
de polietileno que flote en el agua, es
efectiva en contener aceite encen-
dido que haya sido derramado en la
superficie del agua, pero, de la ma-
nera como fue construida, s6lo por
unos cuantos minutes.
La pieza de polietileno, descrita
como una tuberia con una aleta, era
de ese material y de 6 pulgadas de
diametro, de 100 pies de largo, en
piezas de 9 pies de largo, fijadas con
separaci6n de 1 pie, a una lamina o
aleta continue de plastico. Para la
prueba, una secci6n fue cubierta con
material de asbesto, otra con papel
de aluminio, una tercera con pintura
de aluminio, de'ando el resto asi
como estaban. La cubierta de asbesto
prob6 ser la unica efectiva.

Personal de la Divisi6n de Bombe-
ros de la Zona del Canal estuvo
present para encargarse de todas
las pruebas y para apagar el incen-
dio, cuando la pieza de polietileno
demostr6 ser inefectiva para conte-
ner el aceite encendido.
Los invitados de PanamA fueron:
el Coronel Luis C. Endara, Primer
Comandante del Cuerpo de Bombe-
ros de PanamA; Teniente Coronel Er-
nesto Arosemena, Segundo Coman-
dante, y el Teniente Coronel Gilberto
M. AlemAn, Tercer Comandante.
Tambien present en el sitio de la
prueba como invitado, estuvo el
Comandante Guillermo Solano, de

esa fase final de la revision, ambas

podran 'llenar con las alcantarillas
