return to the Isthmus after 32 years.
The young man passing through the
Isthmus was one of Butler's three
sons and he had been instructed to
take pictures-lots of pictures.
Butler, who was born in Bas Obispo
and whose father was a Canal digger
way back in 1908, had a great time
reminiscing about childhood experi-
ences with many of his old school
buddies who are still here. Many have
already retired and left the Isthmus.
After graduating from high school
in 1930, Butler went to work as a
file clerk in the Engineering Division.
In 1932 he left for college and re-
turned to visit his family once-in
1935. It was at this time that he met
aboard ship a charming young lady
who had been to Peru studying Inca
culture. She later became Mrs. Butler

JULY DAILY AVERAGE 42


Ship Traffic Up,


May Go Higher


With a daily average of 42 ocean-,
going ships during the month of July,
more ships are being put through the
Panama Canal these days than at any
other time in the history of the
waterway.
The record breaking traffic of
April, May, and June, not only con-
tinued on into July but increased an
additional 6 percent and ended the
31-day period with a total of 1,302
blue water ships, the highest single-
month total ever recorded.
Information received by Canal
authorities from local shipping agents
indicates that there is a possibility of
an increase of about 10 percent in
shipping during coming months over
the number of vessels handled last
year at the same time.
Despite the record level of traffic,
transits are being handled in an
efficient and timely manner.
Canal employees who are directly
connected with the transit operation
were congratulated recently by
C. Fernie & Co., Inc., in a letter
which Capt. Donald A. Dertien,
USN, Marine Director, thought sum-
med up the feelings of the shipping
industry as a whole.
"We wish at this time to congratu-
late youen and the employees of your
division for the excellent manner in
which they are handling vessels at
the Panama Canal under such pres-
sure and with the equipment avail-
able," R. W. Owen, manager of the
Fernie Co. said in a letter to Captain
Dertien.


The Marine Director passed the
commendation along with one of his
own to the chiefs of the Locks and
Navigation Divisions:
"Please convey my thanks and
appreciation for the untiring efforts
of those people in your organization
who have made possible the transit-
ing of the sustained heavy traffic in
a safe and efficient manner."
Despite heavy traffic, there was no
danger of a water shortage in Gatun
Lake this year, since the level of this
important body of water has been at
the maximum seasonal operating level
of 86.5 feet for the past few months.
Because of this, large ships using
the Panama Canal have been granted
a maximum tropical fresh water draft
allowance of 39 feet 6 inches. This
allowance went into effect June 27
and accounts in part for the large
number of super ships included in
the 1,302 vessels using the Canal
in July.

ama Canal electric current who thinks
his electric bill is too high, and can-
not understand why the bill varies
so much from month to month? If
you are, the following may help you
to realize why this happens.
The electric current you use is
metered by an electric watt-hour
meter. A watt-hour meter is essen-
tially an electric motor with a mech-
anism for recording the number of
revolutions that are made by the
motor. The speed of the motor is
determined by the amount of elec-
tric current that is being used.
Like any other instrument that has
moving parts, friction will tend to
increase, and in time, slow down the
moving parts, so that the meter will
run slow. The Electrical Division
tests and adjusts these watt-hour
meters before they are installed and
again after each 3 years of use. When
tested, almost all meters are found
to be operating up to 1 percent slow
with a few of them operating up to
4 percent slow.
On extremely rare occasions meters
have been reported to be giving
erratic readings. Investigations show
that such meters have been damaged
by external forces, such as lightning,
and have either stopped or are
operating intermittently.

charges for the electric current used
during the month of January 1966.
Many people mistakenly think that
the charge shown on the deduction
slip covers the previous month, and
are unhappy when they are unable
to reconcile the charge to the fact
that they were, for instance, on leave
during the past month.
For about a year, a number has
been printed on the same line as the
electric current deduction: For exam-
ple EL CUR 4.
This 4 signifies the fourth month,
April, the bill for which was actually
deducted on the deduction slip for
pay period No. 25, covering May 21-
June 3, 1967, and for which pay was
received on June 12, 13, or 14, 1967.
The reading of each electric meter
for residences of employees is nor-
mally scheduled for the same date
each month. However, meters are not
read on Saturdays, Sundays, or holi-
days, with the result that the reading
is taken either before or after the
established date.
Therefore, the electric bill may be
for as few as 27 days or for as many
as 34 days. This means that where a
person has an average 30-day month
bill of $30, the variation in reading
period can produce a bill of from

First Manito

Festival at Ocu

On Aug. 12, 13

The first Manito Festival, an exhi-
bit of the crafts, costumes, and tradi-
tions of the people of Ocu, will take
place August 12 and 13.
"Manito" ("little brother") is what
the peasants of the Ocu area call each
other. In that region of the Province
of Herrera, the people live and dress
almost as they did during Panama's
Spanish colonial era.
Main event of the festival will be
the Coronation of the Peasant Queen.
The simple, exuberant beauty of the
women of Ocu is recognized through-
out Panama.
There is a centennial tamarind tree
at Ocu. Duels took place in its shade
during colonial times. An old-style
sabre duel under the tamarind tree
will be a feature of the festival
program.
There also will be a peasant wed-
ding with the same ceremonials and
the same type of dress worn in the
Ocu area for the last 4 centuries.
During the evenings of the festival,
there will be singing and dancing
contests to the typical tunes of the
people of Ocu.
There is an inn at Ocu, the San
Sebastisin, remodeled and under new,
efficient management, with moderate
prices. Reservations may be made by
telegraph.


Zone College may register in the
office of the college any time through
August 25. At the time of registration
they should arrange to have their

Coco Solo, if they reside on the
Atlantic side.
These forms may be secured
between August 1 and August 8 on
the Atlantic side and between
August 1 and August 14 on the Pa-
cific side. Parents should be prepared
to present birth certificates for kinder-
garten and first grade applicants and
proof of citizenship for all applicants
if U.S. citizenship is claimed.
Monthly tuition rates for the
1967-68 school year will be as fol-
lows: Kindergarten, $19; elementary
grades 1-6, $45; secondary grades
7-12, $59; semester rate for Canal
Zone College, $293. A 10 percent
discount from these tuition charges
will be allowed, effective with the
coming school year, for families
having three or more full-time stu-
dents attending the Canal Zone
schools. Tuition charges for part-time
students will not be subject to the
discount.
Sponsorship cards for all students
whose parents are employed by U.S.
Government agencies other than the

en various talleres de mecAnica. Su tiempo libre lo ocupa
en la nataci6n y con much raz6n ya que le queda cerca la

A mediados de 1964 se empez6 a ver
una persona mAs en el Edificio de
Administraci6n de Balboa Heights.
No era empleado del Canal pero iba
a servir a muchos empleados como
encargado de la secci6n de lustrar
zapatos situada en la plant baja del
Edificio de Administraci6n. Se llama
Eduardo Dino Wilsen, quien naci6
en Paraiso el 15 de diciembre de
1944 e hizo sus studios primaries y
secundarios en esta misma comunidad
de la Zona del Canal. Wilsen explica
su trabajo: "Fui el primero en co-
menzar a prestar este servicio en el
Edificio de Administraci6n al conce-
d6rseme permiso para ello. Brindo al
pfiblico el mejor trabajo possible en el
lustre de zapatos y en la pintura de
zapatos y carteras de mujer". Wilsen
es ademAs un deportista consagrado
y se desempefia en forma satisfactoria
tanto en el beisbol como en el soft-
ball. En beisbol es integrante de la
novena Tigres de Paraiso a carzo de
la receptoria. En 1965 recibi6 un
trofeo en las competencias de pista
y campo celebradas en el Esta-
dio Olimpico al ganar los 200 metros
pianos. Termina diciendo: "la vida
tiene sus altas y bajas pero me
mantengo en la lucha".

Resguardo Para los


Ventiladores de Mesa

Los ventiladores de mesa emplea-
dos en los climas cdlidos para refres-
car el ambient y que se encuientran
en una gran variedad de tamaiios,
pueden caesar graces lesiones en los
dedos si inadvertidamente entran estos
en contact con las aspas por entire
los huecos que tienen los resguardos
de alambre con que generalmente
vienen ellos equipados.
Para solucionar este problema se
cuenta ahora con un resguardo deo
tejido de nilon y que puede ser colo-
cado sore el resguardo metdlico.

Estos resguardos son muy fdciles de
colocar, no reduce la eficiencia del
ventilador y son de hajo costo. Se su- ,
ministran en tamaios que van desde
los 20 cm. (8") hasta los 86 cm. (34").
Son producidos por la American All-
safe Co. y se les conoce con el nombre
de Allsafe Fan Guards.

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


LY Mi Cuenta de Luz?


LEs usted uno de los consumidores
de electricidad del Canal de Panam6A
que creen que su cuenta es dema-
siado alta y no puede entender por
qu6 varia tanto, de mes a mes? Si
es usted uno de ellos lo que sigue le
puede ayudar a entender lo que pasa.
La corriente el6ctrica es verificada
por un medidor el6ctrico. El medidor
esencialmente es un motor el6ctrico
con un mecanismo para registrar el
nfimero de revoluciones que da el
motor. La velocidad del motor es
detenrminada por la cantidad de co-
rriente que se usa. Como cualquier
otro instrument que tiene parties
movibles, la fricci6n tiende a crecer,
y con el tiempo, retarda las parties
m6viles, de manera que el medidor
andarn despacio. La Divisi6n de Elec-
tricidad prueba y ajusta los medido-
res antes de que sean instalados y
luego. a los 3 aiios de uso. Cuando
se les prueba, casi todos los medido-
res trabajan con hasta 1 por ciento
de retardo. Algunos pocos trabajan
hasta con un 4 por ciento de retardo.
S61o en muy raras ocasiones se ha
encontrado medidores que den lec-
turas erraticas. Las investigaciones
muestran que tales medidores han
sido dafiados por fuerzas extrafias,
tales como rayos y se han parado, u
operan intermitentemente.
La deducci6n por corriente elec-
trica que aparece en su Aviso de
Deducciones Miscelineas, es por la
corriente usada en los 2 meses ante-
riores. Por ejemplo, el Aviso de De-
ducci6n que usted recibi6 el 21, 22
6 23 de marzo de 1966, muestra los
cargos por corriente el6ctrica usada
durante el mes de enero de 1966.
Muchos creen err6neamente, que el


tricidad puede ser s6olo por 27 dias
o por 34 dias a lo mins. Por lo tanto,
una persona que tiene una cuenta
promedio de $30, la variaci6n en el
period de lectures puede causarle
una cuenta de $27 a $34 sin cambio
en la rata diaria de uso de electri-
cidad.
De todos los articulos de su casa,
los aparatos de acondicionamiento de
aire son los consumidores mas gran-
des de electricidad. Por lo tanto, las
variaciones en la corriente usada por
esos aparatos, cada dia, pueden tener
un efecto notable en su cuenta.
Generalmente, en la estaci6n seca,
cuando hay sol durante todo el dia,
con temperatures mas altas afuera y
brisas de alta velocidad, su aparato
de aire acondicionado trabaja mis
fuertemente en mantener en sus ha-
bitaciones una temperature baja, y
por lo tanto usa mis corriente el6c-
trica que en la estaci6n lluviosa,
cuando hay Iluvia o nubes durante
parte del dia, temperatures exteriores
mas bajas, y brisa de baja o ninguna
velocidad.
La cantidad de corriente electrica
usada por los aparatos de aire acon-
dicionado varia grandemente de
acuerdo con las condiciones en que
operan. Algunos de estos factors son:
a. Tipo de casa concreteo o ma-
dera, bien o pobremente aislada).
b. Localizaci6n del aparato de
aire acondicionado (a la sombra o
bajo el sol).
c. Tamai-o del aparato.
d. Espacio que debe ser refres-
cado.
e. Temperature exterior y hu-
medad relative.
f. Temperature interior y hume-

Neumaticos Mas Seguros

Tendran Modelos del 68


La Oficina Federal de Carreteras
de los Estados Unidos ha recomen-
dado medidas de seguridad para los
nuevos neumAticos de autom6viles,
tanto nacionales como extranjeros.
Estas entrarian en vigor para el 19 de
enero de 1968, y las fAbricas de neu-
maticos tienen hasta el 22 del pr6xi-
mo mes de agosto para hacer reco-
mendaciones que pudieran dar como
resultado la revision de las normas
proyectadas.
La Oficina Federal de Carreteras
fija nonnas de funcionamiento y pro-
cedimientos de prueba para los fa-
bricantes de neumAticos. Especifica

jeros que tomara el automdvil y fuera

neumAticos y aros de los nuevos
autom6viles.
La oficina manifest que los pro-
ductores extranjeros tendran que
adaptarse a las nonrmas, si los neumA-
ticos pertenecen a autom6viles que
se vendan en el mercado norteame-
ricano.
Entre los requisites se encuentra
el de que los nuevos autom6viles sean
equipados con neumalticos que sean
apropiados para el pe.so y carga de
los vehiculos en que son utilizados.
Tambi(n se dispone que, para el caso
de que se reviente un neumAtico,
deben los aros metAlicos sujetar el
neumaitico para permitir que el con-
ductor vaya deteniendo el autom6vil
desde una velocidad de 60 millas por
hora, hasta pararlo.
Los nuevos autom6viles tendrin
una placa permanent colocada en la
puerta del guantero o en otro sitio
igualmente visible, que indique la
media de los neumAticos recomen-
dada por los fabricantes, la presion
del inflado que deben tener para sos-
tener el peso mnAximo del vehiculo
cargado, la capacidad de los asientos
y el peso mnaximo que debe llevar el
autom6vil.
Los neumAticos irAn provistos de
un indicador que permit observer a
simple vista el grado de desgaste del
neumatico hasta la profundidad de
1/i de pulgada.
Tambi6n, los neumaticos llevarin
permanentemente una etiqueta, en
ambas cars, indicando su media, la
maxima presi6n permitida, el maiximo
de peso, el nombre del fabricante o
su identiflcaci6n, la composici6n, y
una indicaci6n de conformidad con
las medidas federales.

De acuerdo con los informes ren-
didos por el Instituto de Ciclismo de
America en la actualidad, en los Es-
