Maintenance dredging being carried out at the north end of Empire Reach in Gaillard Cut by the dredge "Mindi,"
which is dredging for the first time in this region, at approximately station 1840. The vessel is removing some
10,000 cubic yards of rock and silt from the bottom each day. This material is being spilled in the new spoil area
(upper right of photo). Completed last month ahead of schedule, the dike provides an area for the Dredging
Division to spoil approximately 3 million cubic yards of dredged material.

Rainy Season

Starting Date

3d Earliest
It may have washed out some
planned outings, but the early start
of rainy season this year received a
warm welcome from many. Among
these were Panama Canal officials,
shippers and ship agents, to whom
the Gatun Lake level is a matter of
concern for transits at maximum
allowable ship drafts.
It was the third earliest start for
a rainy season since the Canal
opened. The official starting date
was April 15. Earliest ever was the
April 3 date listed for 1960, and the
second earliest was way back in 1919.
Since the past dry season began
December 25, the April 15 ending
date meant a dry season of only 111
days, compared with an average of
135 days.
Rains over the past weekend
weren't as heavy as many may have
thought, with the heaviest recorded
1.95 inches at Pedro Miguel. Earlier,
April 18-19, Cristobal had 3.59
inches and Gatun 2.08 inches.
Unless there are continued sub-
stantial rains, the maximum draft
allowance is scheduled to be reduced
May 12 from 36 feet 6 inches to
36 feet, but on the basis of pre-
liminary reports, the past month
appears to be due to go down in the
books as the sixth highest April on
record for Gaton Lake basin runoff.

Guinea's National Corps de Ballet,

sador of the continent. For its faithful
representation of negro folklore, the
corps is under auspices of the
National Ministry of Education of
the Republic of Guinea and is under

Ministry of Education and the
National Cultural Organization.

Nata Church



One of the most interesting old
churches in Panama is in Nata, Cocle
Province, whose construction was
begun May 20, 1522. The pulpit, of
mahogany, was carved by the Indians
under instruction from the Spaniards.

in use on the American continent, is
known to historians as the Basilica
de Santiago Ap6stol and was declared
a national historical monument in
Among the treasures that still
remain in the church is a silver
pelican that dates back to 1752. The

ment and the remainder of the year
is kept under lock and key in the
sacristy of the church. (Photographs

This Is No Job for Amateurs

It was something like threading a
needle on a gigantic scale.
Replacing the 700-ton miter gate
at Miraflores Locks was a ticklish job
even for the experienced operators of
the floating crane Hercules.
Since it is capable of handling
only 250 long tons, the Hercules
could not lift the whole weight of
the miter gate. About 500 tons of it,
however, was supported by the water
in the locks. The crane did have to
support 220 tons, or close to a

capacity load, when it swung the
gate and gently placed it on the gate
hinges or pintles.
This was the first time that the
Dredging Division had replaced a
lock gate at Miraflores Locks
although the job had been done a
couple of times during experimental
overhauls at Gatun.
Each time, however, the operation
has been directed by Herbert Tabert,
master of the Hercules and veteran
employee of the Dredging Division

who has been working with the big
crane for at least 20 years.
Like a conductor directing a sym-
phony orchestra, Tabert shows crane
operator Walter Malone what he
wants done by means of hand signals.
Meanwhile Andrew Gagliano, engi-
neer on the Hercules, works closely
with Malone to see that everything
is in top notch working order. It
takes about 18 other employees to
assist Malone and Gagliano, when
the "Big hook" is used on a job
like this.

In No One Hears But Him Taylor
Caldwell has written another book
about John Godfrey, a mysterious
lawyer who has built a sanctuary to
which the hopeless and bereaved
may go in search of faith. In this
book one visitor is a minister who
no longer believes in God, one a man
whose wife is dying of cancer, and
a third is a young policeman whose
future appears dark. For each
troubled person there is understand-
ing and the discovery of the real
source of happiness.
Coffin Corner, by Dell Shannon, is
a new detective story about Lt. Luis
Mendoza of the Los Angeles Police
Department. As the story begins, the
department is suffering from un-
accustomed inactivity, but this is
dispelled when everything starts to
happen at once. Corpses appear in
most unexpected places and a mad
tea party causes Mendoza to lose
some of his usually suave manner.
But he recovers in time to solve this

The Pulse of Danger, by Jon
Cleary, describes the adventures of
a group of scientists on a botanical

expedition caught in the high
Himalayas by the advance of the Red
Chinese. In the struggle to escape
to India the party is plagued by the
presence of a captive Chinese general
who is carrying important papers.
The atmosphere and challenge of
the great mountains, the relentless
pursuit of the Reds, the animosities
within the party itself all add to the
suspense. Jon Cleary knows the
Himalayas and knows about moun-
tain climbing. He has produced an
exciting adventure novel.

J. W. Hare, Funcionario de Servicios Especiales, entrega a Clinton Parris,
director del equipo Mutual of Omaha, el trofeo de campe6n de la Liga
Femenina de Softball del Athlntico, que fuera donado por Abadia &
Cia., S.A. El conjunto conquist6 el titulo de campe6n con 20 victorias y
solamente 4 derrotas. Parris tambien recibi6 un trofeo como el director mais
destacado de la liga por segundo afio consecutive, y ha manifestado que su
equipo estA dispuesto a jugar contra cualquier conjunto del Istmo en una
series amistosa. Otro de los tantos trofeos ganados por el equipo fue el de
Jugadora mas Valiosa, que conquist6 la Srta. Dolores Cox, quien tambi6n
se acredit6 otros tres trofeos.

Bella muestra del arte colonial es el puilpito de la Iglesia de Nata. Esta
iglesia, la mis antigua todavia en uso, de la Tierra Firme americana, a la
que muchos historiadores le dan el titulo de basilica de Santiago Ap6stol,
fue empezada a construir el dia de la fundaci6n de la ciudad de NatA de
los Caballeros, el 20 de mayo de 1522. El puilpito, de pura madera de caoba,
fue tallado por artifices indios a quienes los espafioles ensefiaron su arte.
Era parte de las enormes riquezas que poseia la iglesia, que en su epoca de
esplendor fue presa codiciada por pirates y corsarios, que nunca llegaron
a atacarla. De los tesoros que un dia guard, nada mis quedan una campa-
nilla de plata, unos ramos de plata y un pelicano de plata, que es usado
el Jueves Santo, para guardar el Santisimo Sacramento. La Basilica de Natai
fue declarada monument hist6rico national, por Ley 61, de 1908.

Integrantes del equipo Mutual of Omaha posan alegres con los various trofeos que conquistaron en la Liga Feme-
nina de Softball del Atlantico. Los trofeos fueron entregados en ceremonia llevada a cabo el 22 de abril en el
Estadio de Mount Hope. Este equipo conquist6 por segundo aiio consecutive el titulo de campe6n, para ser
considerado el conjunto mAs poderoso en el Istmo. De izquierda a derecha, arrodilladas, estan Claudia Davis,
M6nica Bailey, Herminia Brown, Arvis Brady y Marcelina Campo. Parados: el director Clinton Parris, Claudia
Beckford, Elida Clinton, Valeria Lindo, Phyllis Cornwall, Judith Aulder, Loretta Husband, Diana Niles y el coach
Reno Patrick.
