Grand total


sweeping the entire Cut bottom,
using the Mindi and other dredging
The work of dredging in this area
was made feasible by modification
of the Mindi pump to provide a
higher discharge pressure, and the
progress in widening of the Cut,
which permits the big dredge to
remain in position without interfer-
ing with ship traffic.
A shore dump to handle dredged
material is being constructed at a
site near Empire on the west bank
of the Canal at a cost of $113,850.
The dike will be approximately 2,500
feet long and the area enclosed by
the dike will be large enough to
contain approximately 3 million
cubic yards of spoil material.
A submerged pipeline must be
used in the Cut bottom in places
where it is necessary to transfer mate-
rial by pumping from one side of
the Cut to the other without inter-
fering with ship traffic. Even with
all these provisions, the 300-foot
unwidened section of the Cut is still
inaccessible to the Mindi, and must
be dredged by other means until its
widening is completed.
In prior years, the dipper dredges
Paraiso and Cascadas were used
almost exclusively in Cut dredging
work because of the nature of the
material to be dredged, and their
ability to work in the narrow reaches.
Since 1963, however, suction
dredging has been accomplished
using both the cutterhead dredge
Mindi and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers hopper dredge Harding,
Measurements have shown that by
this method a great deal of the silt
or shoaling material on the Cut
bottom can be removed for a longer
period with more economy and
Suction dredging will complement
and improve the efficiency of dipper
dredging by removal of a large
quantity of fine material which
dippers cannot handle efficiently.
Dipper dredges still will be necessary

Truman H. Hoenke, who has been
Superintendent of the Pacific Branch
of the Panama Canal Locks Division
since 1951, has been named Chief of
the Locks Division to succeed
William A. Van Siclen, Jr., who is
retiring in April.
The announcement was made by
Capt. M. J. Prince, USN, Marine
Director. Hoenke will be acting chief
of the Locks Division following the
departure of Van Siclen April 13. His
appointment as Chief will become
effective May 1.
A native of Flint, Mich., Hoenke
studied engineering at the Univer-
sity of Michigan at Ann Arbor where
he received both his bachelor's and
master's degrees in civil engineering.
Shortly after he obtained his
master's degree, he came to the Canal
Zone as a student engineer in the
former Office Engineering Division
at Balboa Heights. He later worked
as a structural designer and a struc-
tural engineer before being trans-
ferred to the Pacific Locks in 1948
as an engineer.
He was made assistant superinten-
dent of the Pacific Branch of the
Locks Division in 1950 and super-
intendent, succeeding Fred W.
Bradley, in 1951.
Hoenke has been given two
superior service awards, one in 1958
and the other in 1963 in recognition
of his exemplary job performance in
directing overhaul on the Pacific
Locks. He has acted as Chief of the
Locks Division on several occasions.
The Hoenke family is an active
one. Mrs. Hoenke is employed as
administrative assistant in the Canal
Zone Police Division Headquarters
in the Civil Affairs Building.
Their daughter, Mrs. Diane Bauer,
who has a master's degree in zoo-
logy, lives with her husband in Ken-
newick, Wash. Both are scientists on
the staff of Battelle, N.W., a research
company connected with the Atomic
Energy Commission.
They have a son, Roger, who is a
freshman this year in the University
of Michigan, where he is studying
science engineering.



Set New

While Gatun Locks were being
operated on a one-lane basis for the
first 21 days of the month of Feb-
ruary, new transit records for single
lane operation were set.
A record total of 44 oceangoing
ships were locked through Gatun on
February 15 and again on Feb-
ruary 18. A 4-day average of 42.25
ships was established between Feb-
ruary 15 and 18. A 5-day average of
41.6 ships was set between Feb-
ruary 15 and 19 and a 6-day average
of 40.5 ships between February 15
and 20. The daily transit average for
the Canal for the month of February
was 34.3 ships.
Two lane operation was resumed
February 22 following the comple-
tion of the second phase of the over-
haul of the west lane of Gatun Locks.
The third and final phase of Gatun
overhaul, calling for repairs and
maintenance of the cylindrical valves
in the centerwall culvert, was started
February 23. This phase, which per-
mits two lane operation, is scheduled
for completion in about 3 weeks.
Overhaul work and other activities
.relating to lock maintenance will be
shifted back to the Pacific side at
the end of the overhaul at Gatun and
will continue until mid-April.
This work includes the overhaul
of miter gate 112 at Miraflores Locks,
testing the 6-day lock lane outage
plan, and visual inspection of the lock
chamber floors and culverts of each
of the lanes at Pedro Miguel. This
will be done to determine if any
change has occurred since repairs
were completed there in 1965 and
involves the unwatering of the two
lock chambers.
Meanwhile, with the Gatun Lake
level dropping at an average rate of
.05 of a foot a day due to the annual
dry season conditions, an order im-
posing further draft limitations for
ships arriving for transit was issued
by the Chief of the Navigation Divi-
The new order, effective March 11,
limits ships' draft to a maximum of
37 feet tropical fresh water until
further notice.

Student Detour

Around Parking

Area Established
Due to a congestion problem
created by school children walking
through the parking lot of the Balboa
Retail Store, school authorities have
closed the gym gate leading to the
parking lot and directed the flow of
student traffic through the tennis
court to the walk leading to the
Canal Zone Police are directing
the students to the Prado and their
return to school via the same route.
Canal Zone Vehicle Regulations
require that when sidewalks are
available pedestrians are prohibited
from walking on the roadway.
It is hoped that these safety
measures taken jointly by the school
authorities and the Canal Zone
Police-with the cooperation of the
students-will solve a long-standing
problem of students and motorists in
the parking area.

PanCanal Record Good, but ...



President Johnson opened another
front in his war on waste a year ago
and named it "Mission Safety-70."
The objective of this program is a
30 percent reduction in accidents and
associated costs for the Federal
Service by 1970.
This war on "the waste of human
resources, productive skills and
money" is both humanitarian and
practical. It was needed in view of
the more than 300,000 disabling work
injuries with a loss of more than
181, million man-work-days by Fed-
eral employees during the past 7
years. More than 1,200 employees
were killed during this period and it
has been estimated that the accidents
cost $1' billion.
Further, during the past 10 years,
the number of disabling work injuries
suffered by Federal employees each
year remained almost constant. By
contrast, during this same decade,
the number of work injuries and
deaths in private industry declined

PanCanal Rate Lower

For years the Canal organization's
injury rate has been consistently
below that of the Federal Govern-
ment and, except for 1963 and 1964,
it has been below that of private
In his statement of safety policy
for the Federal service, the President
said: "Further improvements in the
safety records of individual agen-
cies . must be attained." This,
therefore, applies to the Canal organ-
ization despite its good safety record.
The Canal organization's injury
rate for 1965 was 5.85 disabling
injuries per million hours of work.
Last year's accident rate was 16.9
percent under that of 1964. To attain
the goal laid down by the President,
then, this figure must be lowered to
4.79 by 1970. It is not an unrealistic
goal; three times in the past 10 years

the Canal organization attained rates
lower than 4.79.
The job of safety might be com-
pared with the gardener who pre-
vents weeds from choking out the
desired crops. It's a never-ending
repetition of tasks performed last
year and the year before.

Continuing Program
Indoctrination, orientation, train-
ing, and refresher courses must be
given on a continuing basis. The
Canal organization's work force is
fluid and its safety program must be
dynamic to keep pace. Much addi-
tional safety training was provided
here in 1965 and it undoubtedly paid


By Eleanor Burnham

Brazilian Cookery, Traditional and
Modern, is the result of a happy com-
bination of the journalistic skill of
its author, Margarette de Andrade,
delightful illustrations by Brazilian
artist H6ctor Bernab6 (known as
Caryb6) and wonderful-sounding
recipes. The book is written in lucid
English which makes each recipe
sound so easy that even part-time
cooks will be inspired to try them.
The book was presented to the Canal
Zone Library-Museum by the Brazi-
lian Embassy in Panama.
In L.B.J.'s Inner Circle, Charles
Roberts presents a carefully detailed
picture of the men who serve the
president as advisers, assistants and
confidants, but who because of the
demands of office must remain behind
the scenes. A diagram of the first
floor, west wing of the White House
orients the reader as to the locale
of their activities, while first-hand
accounts of these men of the inner
circle show them at work. This is an

cff by bringing last year's accident
rate below the previous year's level.
But it's an "all hands" job that
requires the participation of every-
one. And, with everyone doing his
part, PanCanal officials agree the
Canal organization can attain the
goal set in the Mission Safety-70
The President has directed that
the head of each executive depart-
ment and agency report by May 1,
in connection with the Mission
Safety-70 program:
Actions taken; specific accomplish-
ments; areas of weakness which still
need strengthening; and agency
plans for 1966.

interesting and informative book by
a specialist. Roberts has been News-
week's reporter on the President
since 1954.
The Maias, a novel by Eca de
Queoirz, presents the tragedy of the
heir to a noble but declining Lisbon
family. This is a social chronicle-but
on a large scale, an epic which im-
plies in the story of one man the fall
of a society. This book and the other
works of Eca de Queiroz are unusual
in that only after years of neglect
have they been rediscovered and
translated in the United States. This
writer now has been acclaimed as
one of the "greats" among 19th cen-
tury novelists. As a Portuguese writer
he is called the major novelist of a
minor language.
The Season to be Deadly is a
Crime Club selection by Richard
Hardwick in which a disgruntled
encyclopedia salesman yields to
a hitherto unsuspected weakness
toward theft and becomes the prime
suspect in a murder case.
Mrs. Jack, by Louise Hall Tharp,
is a biography of a beautiful 19th
century art collector and iconoclast-
Isabella Stewart Gardner. Mrs. Jack
was an art lover all her life. She
always knew the most interesting
people and did the most bizarre
things-from keeping lions in the
basement of her luxurious home to
receiving her guests perched on the
branches of a potted mimosa tree.
In addition to her talents and eccen-
tricities, she appears to have been a
warm and responsive person-a fact
made clear by Mrs. Tharp in this
finely written biography.
Best Sports Stories, 1965 Edition,
was edited by long-time sports enthu-
siasts Irving T. Marsh and Edward
Ehre and is as it purports to be,
"a panorama of the 1964 sports
world." This is a fine combination of
action reporting and personal pro-
files and covers just about every im-
portant sports event of 1964. Stories
include "The Dodgers' Troubled
Giant," by William Leggett; "Sweet
Sioux," by Red Smith, and "The
Longest Day of Sugar Ray," by Dave
Anderson. This book contains so
many stories by big-name sports
writers that it is almost a Who's Who
of writers in the sport's world.

that cut-out page of the magazine
you are reading, this may give you
a clue.

kinds of land, sea, and air transpor-
tation vehicles-from the bicycle to
the sleek jetliner, including pictures
of horses, camels, and dog-pulled
The scrapbook also has a dedica-
tion at the front, which reads, "To

For Flu Advised

(And It's Free)

The Pan American Sanitary Bureau
reports that an increased number of
influenza (flu) cases have been re-
ported in parts of Georgia and Mas-
sachusetts. Col. Roosevelt Cafarelli,
Health Director, stresses the need for
influenza immunizations for persons
planning trips to these areas.
The Health Director also reminds
Panama Canal employees remaining
on the Isthmus that the influenza
season here occurs in April and May.
Persons who have not been immu-
nized since 1963 should receive two
injections at 2-month intervals. For
other persons who have been immu-
nized in 1964 and 1965 a single injec-
tion is all that is required for pro-
Protection against influenza is
especially important for persons over
45 years of age and those persons
suffering from chronic heart or lung
disease. Pregnant women are also
quite susceptible to influenza and
should consult their obstetricians
about immunizations.
Panama Canal employees and
dependents may secure influenza
immunizations, free of charge, at all

Although suction dredging of
Gaillard Cut throughout its entire
length and width is expected to re-
quire several more years, it has been
possible for the Marine Bureau to
increase permissible ship draft by a
minimum of 1 foot and often 18
inches at the same lake levels.
Immediately following the work of
the dredge Harding last spring,
shoaling in the narrow portion of the
Cut was reduced by 75 percent on
the centerline and 26 percent overall.
Since the Mindi dredged the west
bank from Pedro Miguel to Con-
tractors Hill, not one shoal affecting
ships' draft has occurred in that 2.5
mile section. Additionally, the annual
budget for maintenance dredging of
the Canal has been reduced by
approximately one half million dol-
lars, through improved dredging
methods such as this.

Pacific Pet Show

To Feature Many

Events April 2
"You can't wash or brush a gold-
fish, or a snake, when you have them
for pets," the small boy observed. But
all other pets are being groomed
these days in readiness for the Eighth
Annual SPCA (Pacific Area) Pet Show
to be held Saturday, April 2, at the
Balboa Stadium.
The show will start at 4 p.m. and,
as in the past, judging will go on
simultaneously. Thirteen events are
planned, plus the ever-popular cos-
tume parade for pets.
There will be classes for pure bred
dog breed, both male and female;
pure bred puppy breed, under 1 year,
male as well as female; mixed breed
dog, over 1 year, male and female;
mixed breed puppy, under 1 year,
male and female; pure bred cat
breed, over 1 year; pure bred kitten
breed, under 1 year; mixed breed
cat, over 1 year; and mixed breed

Of Columnist
Kathi Hirt, Canal Zone Carnival
Queen of 1966, made such a hit
during the recent carnival festivities
that she was the subject of a column
written by Anita McAndrews in the
Panama Tribune.
"Kathi was a real Miss America,
backed up by American music and
surrounded by a comparsa that
bubbled and sparkled like the best
of California wines," said Mrs.
The ability of the Canal Zone
Queen to dance Panamanian dances
and speak fluent Spanish was em-
"Kathi is bilingual; she delights in
the cumbia and the tamborito and
does them as she performs the in-
tricate movements of a drum major-
ette or the twist.
"Queen Kathi's manners equaled
her beauty. She visited at our table
and chattered fluently in Spanish with
our Panamanian companions. She had
time to greet everyone. I noticed that
she smiled even when people were
not looking at her and that is one
way to tell a real flesh and blood

El President Johnson abri6 otro

el derroche y lo llam6 "Misi6n Seguri-

al Servicio Federal, para 1970.
Esta guerra "contra el desperdicio
de recursos humans, habilidades
productivas y dinero", es prActica a

en vista de los 300.000 accidents de
trabajo, que durante los l1timos 7
afios han causado la perdida de mAs
de 18"' millones de dias de trabajo
de los empleados federales. MAs de
1.200 murieron debido a ello durante
ese period y se calcula que dichos
accidents costaron $1.500 millones.
Ademrs, durante los Altimos 10

En su declaraci6n de political de

el President dijo: "Deben obtenerse
mayores mejoras en las marcas de

organizaci6n del Canal, a pesar de
su buena marca de seguridad.
La rata de lesiones de la organiza-
ci6n del Canal durante 1965, fue de
5.85 lesiones que causaron incapaci-
dad, por cada mill6n de horas de
trabajo. La rata de accidents del afio
pasado fue 16.9 por ciento mas baja
que la de 1964. Por lo tanto, para
alcanzar la meta fijada por el Pre-
sidente, esta cantidad deberA haber
bajado para 1970, a 4.79. No es una
meta inalcanzable; tres veces durante
los Ailtimos 10 afios, el Canal alcanz6

de Panama, durante el mes de febre-
ro, fue de 34.3 barcos de 300 o mas
toneladas netas del Canal de Panama.
El 22 de febrero se reinici6 la ope-
raci6n a base de dos vias, al comple-
tarse la segunda fase del reacondi-
cionamiento, en la via occidental de
las Esclusas de Gatin.
La tercera y 61tima fase del reacon-
dicionamiento en Gatin, que com-

prende la reparaci6n y manteni-
miento de las vilvulas cilindricas en
la alcantarilla de la pared central,
comenz6 el 23 de febrero. Esta fase,
que permit la operaci6n de las dos
vias, se espera que termine dentro
de 3 semanas.
El trabajo de reacondicionamiento
y oras actividades de mantenimiento
de las esclusas, seran trasladados al
sector Pacifico al final del reacondi-
cionamiento en Gat6n, y continuarA
hasta mediados de abril.
Este trabajo incluira el reacondi-
cionamiento de la compuerta 112 en
las Esclusas de Miraflores y la ins-
pecci6n de los pisos de las camaras
de las esclusas, en Pedro Miguel.
Esto se harA para determinar si ha
habido alguin cambio desde las repa-
raciones que se hicieron alli en 1965.
Ello necesitara el que se saque el
agua de las cimaras.
Mientras tanto, con el nivel del
Lago Gatdn bajando a una rata pro-
medio de .05 de pie al dia, debido
a las condiciones de la estaci6n seca
annual, el Jefe de la Divisi6n de Nave-
(Continua en la pdgina 4)

jamais termina de prActicas efectua-
das el afio pasado y el afio anterior.
Debe inculcarse sobre una ba-
se continue, con adoctrinamientos,
orientaciones, adiestramiento y cursos
de refresco. La fuerza laboral del
Canal de PanamA es fluida y su pro-
grama de seguridad deberA ser dini-
mico para marchar al frente. Gran
cantidad de adiestramiento adicional
de seguridad se dio aqui en 1965, e
indudablemente dio resultados al
bajar la rata de accidents del aino
pasado debajo del nivel del afio
Pero es un trabajo "de todo el
mundo" que require la participaci6n
de todos. Y si cada uno hace su parte,
los funcionarios del Canal de Pana-
mi estin de acuerdo en que la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal puede, alcanzar
la meta impuesta en el program de
la Misi6n Seguridad-70.
El President ha ordenado que los
jefes de cada departamento ejecutivo
y de cada agencia, informen, para el
19 de mayo, en relaci6n con el pro-
grama de la Misi6n Seguridad-70:
La acci6n que se ha tomado;
Logros especificos;
Areas de debilidad que necesitan
ser mAs fortalecidas a6n; y
Planes de la agencia para 1966.

Equipo pesado de la firm constructora de Foster (Panama) Ltd. es trasla-
dado a un sitio cerca de Emperador en la orilla occidental del Canal donde
se construye un dique de tierra. DeberA ser terminado para el 10 de marzo.
El dique tendrA aproximadamente 2.500 pies de largo.

Dragado en Gran Escala

Hacen en Corte Gaillard

Entre los metodos que estAn siendo
usados par el Canal de PanamA, para
resolver el problema de mayores cala-
dos en los barcos cuando el nivel del
lago estA bajo y para mejorar las
condiciones del fondo durante todas
las 6pocas del afio, estAn el dragado
de succi6n para darle al Corte Gai-
llard la profundidad del proyecto ori-
ginal de 45 pies y la construcci6n de
un dique para crear un vaciadero en
una de las orillas del Corte.
El 19 de marzo, la draga de suc-
ci6n Mindi empezara a trabajar en el
limited de la secci6n angosta del Corte
Gaillard, a base de 24 horas diarias,
para limpiar el fondo del Corte de
una acumulaci6n de cieno de 50 afios.
SerA parte de un program de largo
alcance que limpiara el fondo de todo
el Corte, usando la Mindi y otro
equipo de dragado.
Para poder hacer este trabajo se
modific6 la bomba de la Mindi, para
obtener mayor presi6n en la descarga,
lo cual aunado al progress en la
ampliaci6n del Corte, ha hecho posi-
ble la operaci6n de la draga sin inter-
ferir con el trAfico de los barcos.
EstA siendo construido un vacia-
dero en la orilla, cerca de Empire,
sobre la margen occidental del Canal,
a un cost de $113.850. El dique
tendra aproximadamente 2.500 pies
de largo y el Area que se creara,
podrA contener unos 3.000.000 de
yards c6bicas de material dese-
Una tuberia sumergida deberA
usarse en el fondo del Corte, en los
lugares donde sea necesario trans-
ferir material por bombeo, de un
lado al otro del Corte, sin interferir
con el trafico de barcos. Ain con
todas estas medidas, la secci6n de
300 pies de ancho del Corte sigue
siendo inaccesible para la Mindi, y
deberA ser dragada por otros medios,
hasta que la ampliaci6n del Corte
sea terminada.
En afios anteriores, las dragas de
cuchara Paraiso y Cascadas fueron
usadas, casi exclusivamente, en el
dragado del Corte, por la naturaleza
del material a excavarse, y por su
habilidad de trabajar en las secciones
Sin embargo, desde 1963, se ha
efectuado dragado de succi6n, usan-
do tanto la draga de cabezal cortador,
Mindi, como la draga de tolvas del
Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ej6rcito de
Estados Unidos Harding. Las medi-

ciones han mostrado que con este
m6todo se puede remover del fondo
del Corte una gran cantidad de cieno,
durante mayor tiempo, mAs econ6-
mica y rApidamente.
El dragado de succi6n complemen-
tara y mejorarA la eficiencia del dra-
gado por cuchara removiendo una
gran cantidad de material fino que
las dragas de cuchara no pueden
manejar eficientemente. Las dragas
de cuchara tambien seran usadas
para limpiar los derrumbes que con-
tienen roca dura y en las Areas hasta
las cuales no podrAn llegar las dragas
de succi6n.
A pesar de que el dragado del
Corte a todo su largo y ancho, tomarA
algunos afios mAs, ello ha permitido
a la Direcci6n de Marina aumentar el
calado permisible a los barcos en un
minimo de 1 pie y frecuentemente,
hasta 18 pulgadas, con el mismo
nivel en el lago.
Inmediatamente despu6s del tra-
bajo de la Harding, la primavera
pasada, el cieno del fondo en la part
estrecha del Corte fue reducido en un
75 por ciento en el centro del Canal
y un 26 por ciento en toda el Area
del fondo. Desde que la Mindi drag6
la orilla occidental, desde Pedro
Miguel hasta el Cerro del Contra-
tista, no ha habido disminuci6n en la
profundidad que afecte el calado de
los barcos, en esa Area de 2.5 millas
de largo. Ademas de ello, el presu-
puesto annual para el dragado de man-
tenimiento del Canal se ha reducido
aproximadamente en medio mill6n
de d6lares, por medio de metodos
mejorados de mantenimiento, como

En el Hospital Gorgas

Daran Valiosas Clases

A las Futuras Madres
Debido a muchas peticiones, los
miembros del personal de los servi-
cios de obstetricia y ginecologia del
Hospital Gorgas y de la Divisi6n de
Medicine Preventiva, patrocinarAn
conjuntamente, una series de classes
de instrucci6n para las futuras
mamins. Tambitn se invita a esas
classes a los futures papas.
Se usarAn peliculas y diapositivas
para ilustrar y destacar tales sujetos
comrno la fisiologia del embarazo, cui-
dados medicos y personales durante
el embarazo, el alumbramiento en si
y el cuidado del beb6 reci6n nacido.
Las discusiones serAn dirigidas por
medicos, que estarAn a la orden para
contestar cualquier pregunta.
Las classes tendrAn lugar en la Cli-
nica de Obstetricia y Ginecologia, en
el Anexo del Hospital Gorgas, de
7:30 a 8:30 p.m., los dias martes 8,
15, 22 y 29 de marzo.

La Necesidad de la Repetici6n

El encontrar una forma ficil de tener un program de seguridad
efectivo puede transfonnarse, para algunos, en un problema serio.
Pero esto no debe transformarse en un problema sin soluci6n; aquella
es relativamente sencilla y se encuentra al alcance de quien quiera
utilizarla. La misma consiste en trabajar a fin de que el program
tenga 6xito.

En cualquier curso dictado en escuelas, universidades, fabricas,
etc., siempre se encontrarAn los estudiantes que sobresalen, mientras
que otro grupo tendra dificultades que lo colocaran 61tiino en la clase.
Indudablemente, la mayoria pertenecera a un grupo intermedio. Es
probable que el grupo mins atrasado tenga que repetir el curso ya
que no estarin preparados para tomar el siguiente. Se los retendrni
en la misma clase y el ailo siguiente tendrAn otra oportunidad.

Uno de los principios de la ensefianza estA basado en la repetici6n
y en ejercicios. Hacerlos una y otra vez hasta que todos los hagan
correctamente. Hay personas que tienen una capacidad de asimilaci6n
limitada y requieren cantidades de ejercicios para aprender algo,
mientras otras aprenden con un minimo de esfuerzo. Aquellos que
tienen mis dificultad para similar requeririn repetici6n.

En este aspect, la seguridad es similar a la situaci6n creada en
un aula. Algunos trabajadores aprenden rApida y correctamente los
procedimientos y t6cnicas de seguridad. Con otros, es necesario insis-
tir una y otra vez. Estos son los que no pueden alcanzar el nivel de
seguridad que se espera de ellos y en consecuencia estin "fracasando
en seguridad" a la vez que ponen en peligro la vida de los demnAs
y las suyas propias.

En consecuencia, el instructor de seguridad debera estar muy alerta
a la capacidad de cada uno de los trabajadores para aprender y poner
en prictica las reglas de seguridad.

El poner en practice los conocimientos adquiridos es esencial en
esta material ya que de nada vale la teoria asimilada pero no aplicada.

No se lograrAn altos resultados en seguridad a menos que se ponga
en prActica un program de seguridad con objetivos positivos en
mente. Esto require esfuerzos.

El trabajador tambien tiene un gran trabajo por delante que le
demandara esfuerzos. Hasta que sea capaz de demostrarle al instruc-
tor que no se encuentra entire los siltimos de la clase y que es capaz
de trabajar con seguridad todo el tiempo seguirA recibiendo instruc-
ciones y es probable que los "ejercicios" deba repetirlos una y
otra vez.

La 6nica formnna de eliminar la instrucci6n, que muchas veces result
tediosa, es transformAndose en un trabajador que tiene en mente la
seguridad desde que llega hasta que terminal su trabajo.

Las posibilidades estAn claramente definidas, la elecei6n depend
de cada uno.
