Valve Bearing
Ofe Bra e
One of the problems that has
plagued engineers since the construc-
tion of the Panama Canal may be
solved if an experiment presently
being carried out by Panama Canal
locks forces and engineers proves
The problem involves the fre-
quency of overhaul of the rising
stem valves which control the flow
of water into and through the center
and side wall culverts of the Panama
Canal Locks.
The weakest point in these vital
valves has been the metal rollers and
guides on which the valves move up
and down. The valves are opened
and closed at least once during each
lockage and the corrosion of the
rollers has been the determining
factor in the length of time between
locks overhauls.
About a year and a half ago, engi-
neers installed, as an experiment, a

Engineers Week
Displays Readied
The Canal Zone Library will offer
an interesting display of books and
pamphlets during National Engineers
Week February 20-26 which should
prove to be of particular interest to
professional and prospective engi-
neers. The display will consist of
posters provided by the Canal Zone
National Engineers Committee and
special books and pamphlets.
Featured will be the book, The
World of Engineering, by Prof. J. H.
Whinnery, Dean of Engineering of
the University of California in
Berkley. A National Engineers Week

Retail Stores

TO Close Feb. 22
All retail stores will be closed all
day February 22, Washington's
To avoid the closing of units for
3 consecutive days, beside those
stores which normally operate on
Monday, the supermarket sections
of Balboa, Coco Solo, and Rainbow
City Retail Stores will open regular
hours Monday, February 21.
The Diablo Heights Superette and
Gatun Convenience Section will be
open regular hours on February 22.

The steady drop in the level of
Catun Lake caused by heavy water
consumption demands on the Pacific
side, record electric power loads in
the Canal Zone and steady high
volume of ship traffic already is a
matter of concern to Panama Canal
engineers this dry season.
Effective February 25, vessels
transition the Canal will be limited to
a draft of 38 feet.
Although the level of Catun Lake
still is slightly higher than it was at
the same time last year, it has been
falling since January at an average
rate of .05 of a foot a day. This is
somewhat higher than the average
of .03 of a foot which is the predic-
tion made on the basis of past records
by the Hydrographic Branch.

Not only has water consumption
increased by 3 million gallons per
day-peak electric power loads in the
Canal Zone have reached all time
highs. In order to meet the power
peaks, the Panama Canal must oper-
ate every powerplant at its maximum
Capacity. Conservation measures
must be adopted.
Irrigation or lawn watering in res-
idential areas on the Pacific side has
been ordered restricted to hand
watering. Canal Zone residents also
have been asked to help conserve
electric power. This can be done by
turning off lights when not needed,
keeping air conditioners adjusted to
the minimum for comfort, and by
using clotheslines instead of the elec-
tric clothes dryer,

O, ft S Of gTOUR . *
Canal Zone residents in the Gamboa area rubbed their eyes one Sunday
morning recently when a snappy blue convertible drove up the Canal. The
amphibious vehicle is a German made convertible owned by U.S. Air Force
Brig. Gen. William A. Tope, who assumed his duties here recently as
Director of Plans Directorate at the U.S. Southern Command at Quarry
Heights. So far as could be learned, the automobile that travels by sea as
well as by land is the only one of its kind on the Isthmus.

William A. (Lonnie) Van Siclen, Jr., right, Chief, Panama Canal Locks
Division, received the Canal's top honors on retirement from Gov. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr.

was a pilot.
He worked during school vacations
and completed apprenticeship as ma-

Action has been suspended on a
newly-proposed schedule of home
delivery milk charges which, if
adopted, would increase the price for
some users of the delivery service.
The decision was announced last
week at the U.S. Civic Council
executive session.
Members of the Civic Councils at
a previous session objected strongly
to the increase on the grounds that
it would penalize those who pur-
chased larger quantities. They were
informed by Cov. Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., that the new schedule will
not be adopted until further study
is made of the effect of the proposed
No final decision has yet been
made, but the tariff will probably be
modified so that customers ordering
larger quantities will be given the
advantage of a reduction in the cost
per quart delivered, it was noted.
Cost Estimate Asked
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt stated that
a cost estimate is being requested for
construction of a protective fence
along the drainage ditch in Diablo,
a matter mentioned at the previous
meeting by Capt. Howard Buehler,
president of the Pacific Civic Council.

It was brought out that the slopes
in that area, bordering the Army
antenna field, are overgrown with
weeds in which there are a number
of snakes and the water in the ditch
is 5 to 6 feet deep, creating hazards
to children playing in the region.
Colonel Parfitt said a protective fence
will be built if the cost is not exces-
sive. The Lieutenant Governor also
discussed the possibility of having the
weeds trimmed regularly.
In answer to a question raised
earlier by Capt. Buebler regarding
the possibility of local schools receiv-
ing Federal aid in the form of
lunches, Colonel Parfitt explained
this program is not applicable in the
Canal Zone unless specific legisla-
tion were passed. The matching fund
and surplus food programs are based
on need and the passage of legisla-
tion for such a program based on
poverty and need in the Canal Zone
would be impossible, he said.

The anticipated success of this pro-

She pointed out that each year's
order of service is designed by an
individual or committee in a different
country. The 1966 service, based on
the international theme: "You Are
My Witnesses" (Isaiah 43:10), was
prepared by women of the World
Day of Prayer Committee of Scot-

idea that ordinary church members
can change the world by their daily
actions," Mrs. Ficzeri said. "It also
reflects the ancient traditions of the

World Day of Prayer Feb. 25;

Governor Urges Participation

Cov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., has urged Canal Zone residents to join the
people of 125 nations in observing World Day of Prayer on February 25.
In proclaiming February 25 as World Day of Prayer in the Canal Zone,
the Governor called attention to the fact that for 75 years Christians in all
corners of the earth have observed the day, seeking divine guidance and
wisdom and courage to meet and solve the problems of our time.
Churchwomen throughout the Canal Zone are making preparations for
the observance of the day. The service is planned for the first Friday in
Lent, February 25, at 9:30 a.m. in the Fort Clayton Chapel.
The theme for 1966 as planned by United Church Women of Scotland
will be "Ye Are My Witness." Mrs. Charles W. Adair, Jr., wife of the
U.S. Ambassador to Panama, has accepted the invitation to bring the
World Day of Prayer Meditation.
The day officially begins on a small Pacific Island and follows the sunrise
around the globe. Governor Fleming urged Canal Zone residents "to
observe this day by attending church services wherever possible, or pausing
for a minute of prayer at noon, to ask Cod to give us the wisdom and
courage to meet and solve the problems of our time."

When does a pedestrian have the right
of way?-A pedestrian has the right
of way at a marked crosswalk and
at an unmarked crosswalk at the
end of a block. However, this does
not relieve the motorist from the
responsibility of using care for the
safety of pedestrians at other loca-
tions, nor may a pedestrian sud-
denly enter the path of a vehicle
which is so close that*it would be
hazardous for the driver to yield.
What is a highway?-A highway is
any street, roadway, or other
place open to the public for
vehicular traffic, and includes road
shoulders and sidewalks adjacent
to roadways.

Crew Taking Professional Interest in Scientists' Work.

The newest vessel in the Scripps
Institution of Oceanography fleet
was clocked in Balboa recently on her
way from Boston, Mass., to the U.S.
west coast. She was the 208-foot
Thomas Washington, which was con-
structed in Boston by the U.S. Navy
and converted into a scientific ship
in 1965.
Now a ship-shape floating labora-
tory, the Thomas Washington has
spent the past 2 months in the Atlan-
tic and the Caribbean while scientists
aboard made a study of the profile
of the ocean floor. A similar study
will be made of the ocean bottom off

the west coast of Central America
near Cocos Island before the ship
proceeds to her home port of San
The 12 scientists and students
aboard were headed by Dr. Manuel
Bass, a Scripps Institution geophy-
sicist. The studies are being made in
water as deep as 1,500 to 2,000
fathoms and use is being made of
seismic shocks produced by under-
water explosions and by coring
ocean floor material with special
coring equipment carried aboard the
Thomas Washington.

Both scientists and'a crew of 25
officers and men under the command
of Capt. Terry Hansen apparently

man torn between the ministry and
the medical training he formerly
found so rewarding. The resolution
of his dilemma and the unfolding of
the characters involved in his deci-
sion are smoothly accomplished by
this veteran writer.
Lancelot Hogben wrote Mathemat-
ics for the Millions some years ago
to acquaint the layman with the mys-
teries of mathematics. He is now
doing the same thing with language
and linguistics in his new book
The Mother Tongue. Professor Hog-
ben is a distinguished British scholar
but his fascinating dissection of the
relation of English to ancient tongues
and to six Teutonic and six Romance
languages really will not help you
to read a French menu or order a
German car. It will surprise and
delight you by displaying the mys-
tery of words and their shades of
ineaning and pronunciation. For all
its learning, this is not a stuffy book
and includes a good deal of humor
along with the scholarship.
A new book by Len Deighton, The
Billion Dollar Brain, will please
those who liked The Ipcress File. The
tough, insubordinate spy-hero is a
sort of anti-James Bond who fumbles
his way among clues and gunmen
and arrives at his solutions by a
happy mischance. This story jumps
from place to place-London to
Leningrad to San Antonio to Riga.
The villains change into heroes and
vice versa. All ip all it is a good
workout for espionage buffs.

Fort Gulicl< Youth Is Awarded



A Ship-Shape Floating Laboratory


By Emily J. Price
Truman Capote's In Cold Blood
is a careful analysis of a real-life
murder. The author, well-known for
lais avant-garde style and his depic-
tion of a highly sophisticated, city-
based society, has in this book
turned to the western plains of
Kansas and the study of a brutal and
senseless crime. Whether or not he
laas achieved his purpose of estab-
lishing a new art form, the non-
Ection novel," he has produced a
thorough job of objective reporting.
After 6 years of intensive study of
the town, the people involved and
the murderers, Capote has written a
memorable and disturbing book, one
that will echo in the reader s mind
long after reading.
The House Divides, by Paul I.
Wellman, is a colorful addition to the
Mainstream of America series. Cen-
tering on the towering character of
Andrew Jackson, the book covers the
period from the end of the War of
1812 to the onset of the Civil War.
Other great figures are Henry Clay'
Daniel Webster and the young
Abraham Lincoln. The author is well
known for his many novels of the
early West and Southwest and in this
readable history he uses his vast
knowledge to tell the story of west-
ward expansion. Readers with the
urge to read something "improving"
will find in this book a pleasant way
to learn about the early history of
the United States.
There is a Season is Faith Bal-
dwin's 62d novel. It describes 7 deci-
sive days in the life of a young clergy-

Marie Ceer, Nancy Huldtquist and
Alberta Wilder. Entering on the anus
of Capt. Axton Jones, official rep-
resentative of the Canal Zone, and
Carl Ender, Queen Esther will take
the throne and receive her crown
from Queen Nina.
Flanked by six apprentices, the
Court Jester, William Hollowell, will
perform for the queen and her sub-
jects and read the royal proclaina-
tion heralding the Carnival season
of February 19 to 22 when Queen
Esther and carnival merrymaking
will reign supreme.
Lucho Azebrraga will play for the
dancing of the queen and her royal
su jects'

also was extended on this valve.
Recently, when lock overhaul
began at Gatun, the experimental
valve was examined and was found
to be almost without wear although
it had operated the equivalent of
2 years. It would appear that this
bearing system might be operated as
long 10 to 15 years without replace-
H'hile the east lane was unwatered
and undergoing overhaul, five more
of the experimental phenolic laminate
tracks were installed in the east lane
culverts. They will remain in opera-
tion until the next overhaul when
they will be examined. Phenolic
laminate tracks will be installed in
six valves at Miraflores Locks dunng
lock overhaul in 1967. If their opera-
tion remains as successful as it has
up to now, it is expected that a
similar system will be placed even-
tually in all the rising em valve
bearing slots of all the s.
At present the Panama Canal has
more than a half million dollars
worth of bronze rollers which keep
the rising stem valves operating-
Each rising stem valve ndes against
two roller trains. There are 56 valves
at Gatun Locks, 36 at Miraflores and
24 at Pedro Miguel for a total of 116.
On the basis of present experience,
the life of the roller train averages
about 5 years at Miraflores and Catun
Locks and as long as 7 at Pedro
Miguel Locks where they are affected
by fresh water only and corrosion
is reduced.

summers of 1933 and 1934 he worked

He was graduated from the Uni-

In 1936 he was a towing locomotive

he was appointed Superintendent

In 1963, he was promoted to Chief,

Camboa Civic Council President
Charles S. Howe stated that numer-
ous items previously sold at the
luncheonette are no longer carriec1
there despite requests by many cus-
tomers. Howe said he would gather
more information on this and on
complaints of poor service at .the
commissary and luncheonette.
Gamboa's vice president, Robert
E. Lee, asked why some houses in
Santa Cruz that were scheduled for
demolition are now being repainted.
Colonel Parfitt pointed out that there
are not sufficient funds to replace
some older buildings that were to
have been torn down, therefore exist-
ing structures had to be renovated.
Captain Buebler said there has
been unofficial talk concerning pos-
sible future increases in rent and
electricity rates. The Governor said
that based on conditions now he
could see no raises in these items.
The power situation is critical, how~
ever, and if an emergency power-
plant should have to be purchased,
this could cause a possible rate
increase, he added.

Mrs. Darlene Ashby, 1st vice pres-

stated that the number of break-ins
had risen sharply at Los Rios and
asked that something be done. The
Governor instructed John D. Hollen,
Chief of the Executive Planning

Mrs. Ashby asked also that action
be taken regarding the number of
school children who walk five anel

Five old-timers with construction day service paid a call on Canal Zone Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., last week when
they visited the Governor at his office at Balboa Heights. The visitors, four of whom drove to the Isthmus through
Central America, complimented Governor Fleming on the appearance of the Canal Zone. They, in turn, were com-
plimented for the part they took in the construction of the Canal. The Governor remarked that only recently it
became necessary to make some changes and repairs to some of the Canal's original machinery but that most of
it still was working efHciently after more than 50 years of operation. "This is remarkable," he said, "especially in
view of the fact that the size of ships and the amount of traffic had increased to near maximum capacity of the
Canal." Left to right are: Will R. McCann, Hopewell, Va.; Mrs. George McCullough, George McCullough'
Birmingham, Ala.; R. H. Sartor, St. Michaels, Md.; Mrs. Grace Rigney, Mexico City; Mrs. Virginia McCann,
daughter-in-law of Will McCann, who lives in Rochester, N.Y., and Governor Fleming.

C6sar Martinez es Ayudante Estudiantil en la Escuela Primaria de Pedro
Miguel. Tiene 21 a50s de edad, naci6 en Puerto Armuelles, Provincia de
Chiriqui y en la actualidad reside en la Finca La Ceiba, de la Chiriqui

Fblix Olivares C., de la ciudad de David y su mayor deseo es hacer studios
de Professor de Geograffa e Historia en los Cursos de Extensi6n Universi-
taria que funcionan en la capital de la Provincia de ChiriquL Se interest
en el program de ayudantes estudiantiles en el mes de noviembre, cuando
en um6n de otros alumnos y professors de su colegio, hicieron una gira por
el Canal de PanamA. Lo que mis le gusta es leer en sus horas desocupadas.
Sus revistas favorites son Life y Selecciones. La mdsica panamena le agrada
mucho y tambi6n la m6sica clAsica. Su autor favorite es Verdi y el intir-
prete que mis admire, Carusso. Las ciudades que mis le gustaria concern
son Los Angeles y Nueva York. El moment que mis le agrada de su trabajo
es cuando se encuentra, como en la fotograffa, ensefiando a los niiios c6mo
desarrollar "una mente sana en un cuerpo sano". Pero sobretodo, es un
ferViente enamorado de la tierra chiricana que lo vio nacer. A pregunta
nuestra, nos dice que su poblaci6n favorite es, por supuesto, Puerto Armue-
Iles, donde nacib, pero que le encanta Boquete, por lo fdrtil de sus tierras
y lo agradable de su clima. Nos cuenta que ha visitado las plantaciones de
Citricos de Chiriqui y dice que se ha quedado asombrado de lo que puede
el hombre, cuando se dedica a trabajar. "No conocia el lugar donde yo
habia estado anteriormente, Ilamado Rovira". "Es uno de los lugares mis
bellows que conozco".

BS ftCIpitaciones

Los actos precipitados dan como resultado, en muchas oportuni-
dades, accidents. Los mismos podrian haberse evitado si se hubiesen
tomato unos segundos mais de tempo. Es muy com6n observer a la
salida de las faibricas, la precipitaci6n con que los trabajadores aban~
donan la misma al final de la jornada y la ansiedad que se refleja en
sus rostros por alcanzar el vehiculo de transporte que ha de Ilevarlos
de regreso a sus hogares y . que easi pierden.
Igual reacci6n se observe muchas veces en el interior de la plant.
Tal secei6n debe empezar las operations y el encargado de poner
las miiquinas en funcionamiento no ha llegado. De repented, a trav6s
de uno de los pasillos algo ha pasado como un b61ido; 16gicamente,
como la velocidad era tan alta no se ha alcanzado a distinguir qu6
era. Pero si . era el encargado de las miquinas que acababa de
llegar y que sin detenerse a mirar hacia ning6n lado se dmgio al
control de las maiquinas y las puso en funcionamiento.
Indudablemente, ya se habian perdido algunos minutes de trabajo
por su tardanza y no era cuesti6n de perder algunos mais mirando
si alguien estaba peligrosamente cerca de alguna de las miquinas.
Pero si hubo que perder no solo "algunos minutes" cuando se debieron
detener las intiquinas y librar la mano de uno de los trabajadores que
la tenia colocada entre los engranajes de transmission, que para ganar
tempo habia empezado a lubricar.
Casos como este se registrar a diario. Si nos detuvibramos a pensar
qu6 es 10 que realmente se gana en "esos segundos" de diferencia
que existent entre obrar con precipitaci6n a tomarnos un poco cle
tempo y estar seguros que todo esti en orden para poder obrar con
seguridad, es indudable que descubririamos que en lugar de
ganancias, la mayoria de las veces se obtienen pirdidas.
Obremos cuidadosamento y ganaremos tempo'

Luego viafaron a Santiago de

Clifton, antrop610go estadounidense
que hacia studios sobre los indios
Mapuches cle Chile.
Viajando en autobtis y ferrocarrtl,
visitaron todo Sur Ambrica con la
excepd6n de Bolivia y Venezuela.
Solo permanecieron poco tempo en
las grades ciudades, estableci4ndose
en las pequefias comunidades para
observer mais de cerca las verdaderas
cultures natives.

Esta no es la primer vez que
Richard estti en PanamA y la Zona
del Canal. Vivi6 aqui hace algunos
ailos con sus padres, John y Mavis
Biesanz, reconocidos soci610gos y
autores de various libros. John Biesanz
fue Profesor Visitante de Sociologia,
en la Universidad de PanamA, en
1946, por cuenta del Departamento
de Estado de Estaclos Unidos.
En esa ocasi6n y en otros viajes
que hicieron al Istmo, los Biesanz
hicieron studios extensions de los
aspects sociol6gicos de PanamA y
de su pueblo. Como resultado de
estos studios y observaciones, los
Biesanz escribieron el libro "People
of Panama", obra muy conocida,
usacla en Estados Unidos como refe
rencia y sumamente leida en PanamA
y la Zona del Canal.
Karen y Richard estudiaron en la
Universidad de Oakland, en Michi-
gan. Richard ha hecho studios avan-
zados en la Universidad de Roches-
ter, Nueva York, y Karen, en la Unt-
versidad Alfred, tambi6n del Estado
de Nueva York.
Ambos piensan continual sus estu-
dios universitarios en el pr6ximo

de los Biesanz figure visitor Costa
