Travel Rule

A liberalization of educational
travel approved recently by Gov-
ernor Fleming will benefit some
parents of students attending col-
lege in the United States. For some
time, parents have been permitted
one educational travel round trip
free for a student while he is in col-
lege. But the parents could not
request educational travel south-
bound unless it was the remaining
half of a round trip started from
the Isthmus.
Under the new regulations, par-
ents may request educational travel
southbound if this becomes the final
trip for the student. In other words,
the student only gets a 1-way ticket
if it is issued southbound.
This new rule affects parents who
have taken children northbound,
using home leave or student rates on
the SS Cristobal. Under the prior
system, if these students left college
later and did not qualify for return
transportation under home leave, no
free southbound ticket could be
issued unless the northbound educa-
tion privilege had been used. Under
the new regulation, a ticket for
southbound only transportation can
be issued with the understanding it
is the final trip.
Another travel change approved
by the Governor concerns free trans-
portation of a vehicle every 4 years.
Previously such free transportation
for a vehicle had to be requested
before the travel took place and had
to be incidental to travel.
Under the new regulation, free
transportation of a vehicle to the
Isthmus may be made at any time
within a specified period, providing
only that it was incidental to travel
and that authorization is obtained
before the vehicle is shipped. In the
case of persons on home leave, the
normal period will be 1 year fol-
lowing return to the Isthmus as the
time within which the vehicle may
be shipped free.
For persons recruited for 2-year
periods, shipment of the vehicle may
take place within 1 year and for
those recruited for 1 year, shipment
of the vehicle must take place within
6 months of recruitment. For those
employees authorized free shipment
of vehicle to the United States on
termination of services, the vehicle
owned by the employee on date of
termination may be shipped free for
a period of 2 years from date of

S 1

A cattle-killing 142-pound black jaguar met his end after killing about 10
head of cattle at Las Mercedes finca of Dr. Paul H. Dowell, manager of the
Panama Canal's Mindi Dairy Farm. The jaguar, the seventh killed in the
same locality, was shot by Dr. Dowell's "head cowboy," Felix De Gracia.
The last steer this particular jaguar killed weighed almost 700 pounds, and
the jaguar had been the object of a determined hunt for about 5 months.
The animal measured 6' 4" from the tip of its tail to the tip of its nose.
De Gracia was elated when he finally shot the jaguar, for he had been sitting
up in a tree many a night, hoping the beast would come into sight. The
jaguar was brought to Dr. Dowell's home in Coco Solo, where some 300
people gathered after word spread via the gravepine.

Veteran Health Bureau

Employee Is Honored

Cecil G. DeMercado, who began
his Panama Canal service with the
Health Bureau as a driver half a cen-
tury ago, when the ambulance was a
team of mules hitched to a "wagon
ambulance," received his 50-year
service certificate from Canal Zone
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., in a
ceremony in the Medical Library at
Coco Solo Hospital.
Everyone who could get off duty
was present, and some made special
trips to attend the ceremony. Mrs.
DeMercado was there to see her hus-
band honored. She wore an orchid
corsage presented her by the Panama
Canal organization. Present, too, was
the DeMercados' little 4-year-old
daughter, Dalys. She also wore an
orchid corsage from the Panama
Col. Roosevelt Cafarelli, Director
of the Panama Canal's Health Bu-
reau, briefly sketched DeMercado's
service history.
Governor Fleming congratulated
the guest of honor on his service
record and then present him a
50-year service certificate, an Emi-
nently Satisfactory Extended Service
Award, and an Outstanding Perform-
ance Rating with a check for $200
and a key to the locks. The check,
however, was handed by Governor
Fleming to Mrs. DeMercado with
the suggestion that her husband
endorse it for her.

good performance from them was
outstanding. . His conduct has
been above reproach and he has
always been willing to go out of his
way to accommodate both patients
and his coworkers. His willingness to
accept any duty assigned has been
noteworthy. His devotion to duty
and loyalty to Colon and Coco Solo
Hospital has been proven by his
many years of faithful service."
DeMercado was born January 1,

Effort Cuts

Mishap Rate
The Canal organization's safety
efforts during 1965, first year of
"Mission Safety-70," paid off with a
14.3 percent reduction in accident
frequency rate compared with 1963,
the base year for computing im-
This reduction was widespread,
being obtained in 20 of the 25 major
units and the frequency rate was
below the Federal agency average as
it has been for many years.
These and many other major
advances were reported to President
Johnson recently by Acting Gov.
H. R. Parfitt in a summary report
of the 1965 "Mission Safety-70"
developments. President Johnson
launched the "Mission Safety-70" in
1965 with as its objective a 30 per-
cent reduction in accidents' and
associated costs for the Federal
service by 1970.
Among the other specific accom-
plishments listed by Colonel Parfitt
were: 255 supervisors completed and
received awards for accident-free
supervision during 1965; the awards
represented 807 accident-free years
of work by whole operating units;
195 drivers completed and received
awards for a total of 987 accident-
free years of driving;
the Supply and Community Service
Bureau worked for a period of more
than 1 million accident-free hours
during 1965 for which it received an
Award of Merit from the National
Safety Council;
217 operating units received awards
for accident-free operations in 1965;
425 employees received awards for
completion in 1965 of 20 accident-
free years of work each;
59 employees received awards for
completion in 1965 of 30 accident-
free years of work each;
74 workers completed the American
Red Cross 12-hour Standard First
Aid Course with 62 of these em-
ployees going on to complete the
16-hour Advanced Course and 18
completing an additional 18-hour
Instructor-Trainer course;
all individual schools in the schools
system were awarded the National
Safety Council School Honor Roll
Award in 1965 for outstanding safety
achievements for the 10th consecu-

tive year; in addition, the Schools
Division itself was awarded the Na-
tional Safety Council Annual Award
for Outstanding safety achievements
in the entire schools system;
the Civil Affairs Bureau earned the
Governor-President's Annual Safety
Trophy for 1965 for achieving the
greatest percentage of improvement
in its 1965 accident frequency rate
over its own previous 3-year rate.
During the first quarter of 1966,
there was a 19 percent reduction in
the number of disabling injuries and
a 46 percent drop in resulting costs
as compared with the corresponding
period in 1965.
Under the heading of actions taken
during the first year to improve even
further the safety standards, Colonel
Parfitt noted that industrial, off-the-
job and motor vehicle safety training
and first aid training were provided
for a total of 5,354 man training
hours. Many man training house of
safety instruction were provided to
workers by their supervisors as
weekly tailgate or toolbox safety
In addition, 266 safety films and
lectures were given to employee and
dependent audiences totaling 14,235

By Eleanor Burnham

My Brother, Ernest Hemingway
is an admiring biography by Leices-
ter Hemingway, written shortly after
Ernest Hemingway's suicide. In his
effort to present an accurate account
of his famous brother's life, Hem-
ingway frere has provided almost
a blow-by-blow account-somewhat
like an outline. This form may give
the reader an even clearer picture
than the author intended-Ernest
Hemingway shows up as a strong
personality-so powerfully motivated
toward development of his talent
that every other person is incidental
to his great drive. He drained his
four wives, his friends, his casual
acquaintances, and his children in
using them toward his one overriding
passion. When he realized that he
was ill both physically and men-
tally, suicide was a natural thing.
He no longer cared to live when he
could not write. All Hemingway
admirers should read this book. It
gives a picture of Hemingway that
is not always pretty, but which ex-
plains his great talent to a consider-
able degree.

book about Hemingway is that of
A. E. Hotchner entitled Papa Hem-
ingway. There has been considerable
criticism of Hotchner's use of per-
sonal information in writing the
book and a great deal of discussion
of Mary Hemingway's libel suit
against him for invasion of privacy.
Indeed, the facts included about the
mental and physical disintegration
of such a man as Hemingway make
depressing reading but also describe
in detail a formerly glossed-over
facet of his life. To evaluate
Hemingway as a writer and as an
individual, all sides of his story are
necessary. Both of these books-My
Brother, Ernest Hemingway and
Papa Hemingway-are available in
Canal Zone Libraries. My Brother,
Ernest Hemingway since its publica-
tion in 1962, while Papa Hemingway
was received early this month.

Roger Caras call his book Danger-
ous to Man and subtitles it as Wild
Animals-A Definite Study of Their
Reported Dangers to Man. In it
Caras explodes what he calls "old
husbands' tales" about animals that
are believed to be dangerous but
usually are not, and writes of bees,
wasps, and some beautiful and
innocent-looking shellfish, which are.
Caras is obviously well traveled,
observing, and a tireless and meticul-
ous collector of photographs showing
the animals which he describes so
vividly. Anyone who is planning a
trek in the jungle should read this
book to better evaluate the do's and
don't of dealing with animal life.

In Practical Mosaics Hans Ungar
gives us a history of the mosaic art,
tells of the recent revival of interest
in mosaics, and encourages the
beginner to try the art for himself.
Ungar's account contains step-by-
step instructions with accompanying
notes, diagrams of the required tools,
and includes chapters on design and
execution. He even throws in some
beautiful examples of the mosaic art
which will provide the inspiration.
Ungar is a well-known graphic de-
signer and mosaicist-and obviously
an excellent teacher as well.

Anyone Can Grow Roses is the
fourth edition of a standard hand-
book on rose culture by Cynthia
Westcott. The Plant Doctor, as she
is called, is a well-known plant
pathologist, but her avocation and
greatest enthusiasm has always been
growing roses. This book provides
American Rose Society ratings and
color classes, lists chemicals and
pesticides, and includes the author's
latest findings in her continuing love
affair with the rose. The growing
number of Isthmian rose enthusiasts
should take a look at this book.

1914 SS Ancon" Passengers Return


Capt: Charles M. Elder, USN,
retired, and Mrs. Elder, who had the
distinction of being with the
300 invited dignitaries aboard the
SS Ancon on the first transit of the
Panama Canal on August 15, 1914,
were back again 52 years later to
see if any changes had been made.
This time they transited aboard the
R.M.S. Caronia.
"The major changes I've found
from the first time I saw it," said
Captain Elder, "include water in
Gaillard Cut and commentators
aboard the ships. But, somehow," he
sighed, "it isn't as thrilling as it was
on the old Ancon . ."
Captain Elder was first assigned
to Panama Canal duty the latter part
of 1913, when World War I was
imminent. He was sent with a special
force of five C-boats to defend the
"The funny part of that was," he
recalled, "when we got here we
found the Canal we were supposed
to defend hadn't been completed

Mrs. Elder joined her husband in
the Canal Zone and they resided for
a time in the old Colon Hospital,
which later was destroyed.
The ships were docked at the
Mechanical Division docks of the old
French Canal at Gatun. While the
vessels were being overhauled there,
Captain Elder took advantage of the
opportunity to travel to the Pacific
side of the Isthmus to view the
tremendous work project under way
in Gaillard Cut. -
Vividly he described his first view
of the immense gully, crowded with
bustling work gangs of men engaged
in digging by hand and with steam
shovels. Giant trainloads of dirt and
rock were hauled out every hour.
"I saw the majesty and grandeur of
Nature, and apparent insurmount-
able difficulties, slowly but surely
giving way to the determination of
stubborn men," he said.
During his visit, he recalled, "we
were approached by a very pleasant
U.S. Army Colonel, who was most
helpful in answering our questions.
Then he told us, if we cared to see
the entire excavation project, he
would make his motor-driven rail car

Vernon L. Clontz, whose middle name should be "Lucky," holds the
welder's type safety hat that probably saved his life. He is an ironworker,
welder, at Pedro Miguel Locks. While those locks were unwatered for
inspection, work was underway on straightening of a mitre gate skirt by
use of a 50-ton hydraulic jack and double extra heavy pipe strut, which
pushed against the opposite skirt of the gate and was supported on wood
blocking. The steel % inch angle inside the bent skirt cracked and released
the load. The jacking assembly flew out of position and a 1" x 6" x 6" steel
shim struck the welder's type safety hat worn by Clontz, over his left
forehead. Clontz suffered a six-stitch cut over his left eye. Damage to his
safety hat is graphically shown in the photograph.

Health Bureau Employee Honored

1897, in Kingston, Jamaica. He
arrived on the Isthmus in May 1906.
He began his half century of em-
ployment with the Health Bureau in
January 1916, but never drove one
of the mule-drawn "wagon ambu-
lances," whose horns were blown
when struck by the driver's foot.
That first year he drove a Model T
touring car for transportation of the
Health Officer. In 1917 the hospital
received a Model T Ford ambulance
and he was an ambulance driver at
night and the Health Officer's
chauffeur during the day. Later, the
job of driving for the Health Officer
was discontinued and he became a
"full time" ambulance chauffeur.

until 1954, when it was turned over
to the Republic of Panama. In the
Colon Hospital, he recalls, there
were wood stoves, but modern elec-
tric stoves were used in the New
Colon Hospital.
For many years the chauffeurs had
only a white cap to distinguish
them. It was only in later years, he
says, that the white coats and pants
uniform was adopted.
DeMercado, whose present posi-
tion is Medical Aid (Ambulance) was
retired effective December 30, 1965,
and was immediately reemployed for
a period of 6 months. He also has
held the positions of Motor Vehicle
Dispatcher and Chauffeur.
He has four children, three of

The original hospital was known them adults and living away from

by the Panama Canal organization ceremony.

"Through his courtesy, we had a
closeup view of the entire Cut pro-
ject. When we returned, the Colonel
had gone, so we didn't get to thank
him properly for his hospitality. But
I did find out his name," Captain
Elder chuckles at the memory.
"It was George W. Goethals!"
His rail car trip had taken Captain
Elder through Gaillard Cut on the
tracks that covered the entire bottom
of that portion of the Panama Canal.
Witty and charming, with eyes
that twinkle, the Elders recalled
vividly and in detail many incidents
associated with their stay in Panama.
After they left the Isthmus, Cap-
tain Elder was reassigned to the sab-
marine base at New London, Conn.
After a long tour in the South China
Seas, Captain Elder returned to New
London and spent the remainder of
his active duty career in submarine
work in that location. He retired in
1946, and Captain and Mrs. Elder
moved to Portsmouth, N.H., where
they now reside. Their next destina-
tions, on departing from the Isthmus
on the Caronia, are New York sand
then their Portsmouth home.

Shortages and "Specials"

Sales Draw Complaints

Complaints of shortages of certain
items at the Coco Solo retail store
and the manner in which "specials"
are sold were heard Monday at the
regular monthly U.S. Civic Council
Executive Session.
Mrs. Beverly Baker of Coco Solo
said such items as napkins, matches,
and cookies are frequently not avail-
able at the retail store, particularly
during weekends. She added that
food advertised as weekend special
is sold out in a matter of hours.
Capt. Howard Buehler, president
of the Pacific Civic Council, said the
specials are bought up mostly by
persons with freezers who, for
example, buy as many as 12 frozen
pies. It was suggested that the sale
of the specials be limited to two per
person as a means of allowing more
people opportunity to take advantage
of the sales.
Mrs. Baker complained also that
frequently certain fresh vegetables
are not placed on shelves until late
in the morning, thereby preventing
customers from completing their
food shopping earlier in the day. And
sometimes bread that has been frozen
and thawed is sold as fresh, she said.
In reply to a request by Mrs.
Josephine Ridge, vice president of
the Coco Solo Civic Council, and
other Atlantic side members, it was
announced the Coco Solo commis-
sary would be closed Tuesdays
instead of Mondays to do away with
the closing on 2 consecutive days.
Colonel Parfitt announced that
effective June 12, the price of all
Panama Railroad commuter rates
will be increased by $1 a week. The
new rates for commuter tickets are
$7.25 first class and $4.75 second
class for commercial tickets and $6
first class and $4 second class for
employee tickets. Regular fares do
not change.
Effective July 1, there will be a
rate increase for dental work by
district dentists and by the Health
Bureau. This set of rates will apply
to employees who earn $3,075 per
year ($1.48 per hour) or more. Those
earning less than this will pay 60

Surfing Contest

The Canal Zone Surf Club is plan-
ning a 2-day surfing contest at Rio
Mar Beach in the Republic of Pan-
ama. Only surfers in the Republic or
the Canal Zone will be eligible to
compete. Post No. 1 of the American
Legion will provide trophies.
The contest will be held on a
weekend soon to be announced.
Details will be available shortly.

percent of the published scale for
essential dental work.
Current and new scales for some
of the more common dental proce-
dures are: Amalgam filling, from a
present range of $2.50 to $6 to a
new range of $2.50 to $9; gold filling,
$7 to $25, to $10 to $45; gold crown,
$12 to $35, to $15 -to $45; oral
prophylaxis from $3 to $5, to $3 to
$8; extraction, $4 to $5; dentures
$50 to $75, to $60 to $90; X-ray,
single film, $1 to $2.
Information also was given on
liberalized student travel regulations
and a travel change approved for
free transportation of a vehicle to
the Isthmus every 4 years (see story
on Page 1).
A representative of the Motor
Transportation Division met with
members of the Gatun and Mar-
garita Civic Councils to discuss a
shopper bus service, members were
told. The Civic Councils said they
would be satisfied with 1 round trip
(Gatun, Margarita-Coco Solo Retail
Store) each Tuesday and Friday.
The Canal Zone-based Atlantic
Bus Co. has agreed to furnish a bus
on this route and schedule on a trial
basis for 3 or 4 weeks at a fare price
of 30 cents 1 way. If this proposal
is approved by all the residents of
the communities, arrangements will
be made for starting the service on
a trial basis.
In answers to questions asked
previously, it was announced that:
An advisory panel of teenagers will
be selected to work with supervisors
and buyers of clothing sold at Canal
Zone retail stores. The panel will be
similar to those in college towns in
the United States. This action was
taken in reply to a Girls State mem-
ber who asked the April 5 executive
session if buyers could pay more
attention to the tastes of high school
The 15 m.p.h. speed limit on
Gamboa Bridge will not be raised
to 20 as requested. The limit was
established because more speed
would cause more maintenance of
the driving surface and the admin-
istration cannot justify the added
expense of maintenance of the road-
way necessary if the speed limit is

ducer of "Music Man," was the di-
rector of the recently presented

Role of Law Enforcement

Stressed for Police Week

The role of law enforcement in
safeguarding the rights and freedoms
guaranteed by the Constitution, and
in protecting the lives and property
of citizens, will be recognized during
Police Week, which Canal Zone
Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., has
designated May 15-21, pursuant to
a standing presidential proclamation.
Governor Fleming pointed out
that it is important that Canal Zone
residents know and understand the
problems, duties, and responsibili-
ties of their police department.
Cooperating with them in maintain-
ing law and order is the obligation
of every resident, he said.
Police work every day throughout
the year to guard the rights and
liberties of all citizens, and during
police week this dedication and the
courageous deeds of policemen
everywhere should be acknowledged
by gratitude, the Governor said.
The task of law enforcement is a
constant responsibility, and police
work to improve efficiency and
develop new techniques to carry out

their work, the Governor added.
The Governor called upon all
patriotic, civic, and educational
organizations to observe police week
with appropriate recognition of the
dedicated service of police in pre-
serving the rights and security of all
Canal Zone residents.

work will be shown, covering train-
ing, traffic, detective, and uniformed
forces of the Canal Zone Police

Health, Education, and Welfare.)
There's a way to buy bonds for
education which has a special tax
advantage. Under this plan, bonds
are purchased in the child's name,
as owner, either alone or with a
parent as a beneficiary. (A coowner
cannot be used under this tax fea-
These bonds become an outright
gift from parent to child. The income
tax liability can usually be shifted to
the child by filing a Federal tax
return in his name at the end of the
first year of bond purchases, listing
the increase in bond value as income
to the child. This initial return estab-
lishes the intent and no further
returns need be filed as long as the
child's annual income is less than
$600; and no tax will be due if the
bond interest, plus other income,
amounts to less than $900 ($600 per-
sonal exemption plus $300 standard
Assuming that the child never
exceeds this $900 income tax figure
in any year, the total interest accruals
on his bonds will be tax free when
he cashes them for his education.
It is important that a copy of the first
income tax return filed in the child's
name be kept, as it will be needed
when the bonds are cashed for his
college education.

El Coronel Roosevelt Cafarelli,
Director de Salubridad del Canal de
PanamA, resefi6 el historical de servi-
cio de DeMercado.
El Gobernador Fleming felicit6 al
invitado de honor por su hoja de ser-
vicios y luego le entreg6 un certifi-
cado de 50 afios de servicio, un Pre-
mio por Servicios Eminentemente
Satisfactorios y Prolongados, una
Clasificaci6n por Desempefio Sobre-
saliente, con un cheque por $200 y
la llave maestra de las esclusas. El
cheque sin embargo, fue entregado
por el Gobernador Fleming a la
Sra. DeMercado, con la sugerencia
de que su esposo se lo endosara a
La citaci6n dice "Durante todo el
tiempo del empleo del Sr. DeMer-
cado, ha cumplido con sus deberes
de manera excepcionalmente satis-
factoria. Su habilidad para llevarse
bien con sus subordinados y para

obtener buenos resultados fue sobre-
saliente. . Su conduct ha sido
irreprochable y siempre estuvo dis-
puesto a hacer un poco mAs para
ayudar tanto a los pacientes como a
sus compafieros de trabajo. Su devo-
ci6n al deber y su lealtad tanto para
el Hospital Col6n como para el de
Coco Solo, han sido probadas por sus
muchos afios de files servicios".
DeMercado naci6 el 19 de enero
de 1897, en Kingston, Jamaica. Lleg6
al Istmo en mayo de 1906.
Comenz6 su medio siglo de em-
pleo con la Direcci6n de Salubridad
en enero de 1916, pero nunca con-
dujo uno de los "carretones ambu-
lancias", tirados por mulas, y con
bocinas que se operaban con el pie.
Aquel primer afio, manej6 un coche
de turismo Ford Modelo T, para la
transportaci6n del Funcionario de
Salubridad. En 1917, el Hospital re-
cibi6 una ambulancia Ford Modelo T
,y DeMercado se convirti6 en con-
ductor de ambulancia por las noches
y continue con su misi6n de conduc-
tor del Funcionario de Salubridad
durante el dia. Luego, se termin6 el
trabajo de conductor del Funcionario
de Salubridad y qued6 convertido en
conductor de ambulancia de tiempo
El hospital original era conocido
como el "Viejo Hospital Col6n" y
consistia en una estructura de ma-
dera construida sobre el oc6ano. El
"Nuevo Hospital Col6n" surgi6 en
1916, y fue operado por el Canal de
PanamA hasta 1954, cuando fue en-
tregado a la Republica de PanamA.
En el Hospital Col6n, 61 recuerda,
habia estufas de madera, pero en el
Nuevo Hospital Col6n se usaban
modernas estufas electricas.
Durante muchos afios, los conduc-
tores s6lo tenian una gorra blanca
(Continsia en la pdgina 4)

Un jaguar negro, de 142 libras y gran devorador de ganado, encontr6 su
fin despu s de haber dado cuenta de unas 10 reses en la finca Las Mercedes
del Dr. Paul H. Dowell, gerente de la Granja Mindi, del Canal de Panama.
El jaguar, el numero site que se caza en esa localidad, fue tirado por el
"jefe de los vaqueros" del Dr. Dowell, F6lix De Gracia. El 6ltimo novillo
que mat6 este jaguar pesaba casi 700 libras. Durante 5 meses fue objeto
de obstinada caceria que termin6 con su muerte. El animal midi6 6 pies
4 pulgadas de la punta de la cola a la nariz. De Gracia se sinti6 sumamente
satisfecho cuando lo tir6 pues se habia pasado muchas notches arriba de
los irboles con la esperanza de que la bestia se le pusiera a tiro. El jaguar
fue llevado a la casa del Dr. Dowell en Coco Solo, en donde se reunieron
unas 300 personas luego de que la noticia se difundi6 hasta lugares tan
lejanos como Gatan.

"Fue un gran dia para Cecil G. DeMercado, Auxiliar M6dico de Ambulancia del Canal de Panama, cuando fue
felicitado personalmente por el Gobernador de la Zona del Canal, Robert J. Fleming, Jr., por su medio s iglo de
servicios al Canal y se le entreg6 el certificado de 50 afios, el Premio por Servicios Eminentemente Satisfac-
torios y Prolongados, su Clasificaci6n por Desempeflo Sobresaliente y un cheque por $200. Orgullosamente lo
miran su esposa y su hija Dalys.

La Grua HIrcules Verifico

Trabajo de Gran Precision

Fue como ensartar una gigantesca
El volver a colocar en su lugar la
compuerta de 700 toneladas en las
Esclusas de Miraflores fue trabajo de-
licado, a6n para los experimentados
operarios de laagr flotante Hdrcules.
Ya que su capacidad es de s6lo 250
toneladas, la Hdrcules no puede le-
vantar la totalidad de la compuerta.
Sin embargo, unas 500 toneladas de
su peso son sostenidas por el agua
de las esclusas. La gr6a tuvo enton-
ces que levantar 220 toneladas, muy
cerca de su capacidad, cuando iz6 la
compuerta y gentilmente la coloc6
sobre sus goznes.
Esta fue la primera vez que la
Division de Dragas ha colocado una
compuerta en las Esclusas de Mira-
flores, a pesar de que ese trabajo ya
ha sido hecho dos veces en Gatbun

operaci6n ha sido dirigida por Her-
bert Tabert, capitn de la Hercules y
veteran de la Divisi6n de Dragas,
quien ha trabajado en la gr6a durante
los 61timos 20 afios.
Como un director de orquesta sin-
f6nica, Tabert muestra al operario de
