THE PANAMA CANAL





Spillway


Gift of the Panama Canal useum


Vol. VI, No. 9 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, August 18, 1967


CHRISTMAS??!!

Red Cross

Volunteers

Start Early
A number of volunteers of the
Canal Zone Red Cross Chapter are
working on one of their most ambiti-
ous Christmas projects of 1967. That
is the production of 300 cloth "Ditty
Bags" which will be filled with a
variety of small gifts and shipped to
American Red Cross field directors in
South Vietnam for them to distribute
to U.S. servicemen and servicewomen
stationed there during the holiday
season.
The Canal Zone Chapter is one of
nearly 1,400 American Red Cross
chapters in the program "Red Cross
Shop Early-Vietnam 1967." Nation-
ally, the goal is to make and fill at
least 525,000 gift bags.
Cooperating with the Red Cross
in making and filling the bags are the
Elbert S. Waid Post No. 2, American
Legion, and the Post Auxiliary; the
Officers Wives Club, NCO Wives
Club, and Latin American Students'
Wives Club of Fort Gulick; the
Quarry Heights NCO Wives Club;
NCO Wives Club of Fort Davis;
and the Balboa Woman's Club.
Mrs. Arnold Hannberg, president
of Elbert S. Waid Post's Auxiliary,
has been baking cakes to sell at the
unit's weekly bingo and using the pro-
ceeds to buy gifts to fill the ditty bags.
The program was launched because
of the obvious need for this service,
according to Mrs. F. A. Hicks, ARC
chairman of Volunteers of the Pacific
area. A similar one last year was
received with enthusiasm by service-
men in Vietnam. "The hundreds of
letters of thanks, from men in

Some Insecticides

On "Prohibited" List
Persons planning to have pest
exterminators at work in their quar-
ters are urged to make certain that
the exterminator employed is prop-
erly licensed.
This may be checked easily by call-
ing Balboa 2463 on the Pacific side
or Cristobal 2576 on the Atlantic side.
Licensing of pest exterminators is
required by Canal Zone regulations
and includes provisions assuring that
insecticides used are approved types,
applied in the proper concentrations,
and used properly.

Manuel Barahona, machinist, surveys the main dredge pump impeller (which creates pump suction) of the Suction
Dredge U.S. "Mindi," which has been chucked into the giant lathe at the Industrial Division's Balboa Shops. The
lathe is one of five built for the U.S. Navy. Edward J. Friedrich, chief foreman of the Balboa Shops, is at center
behind the lathe.


Huge Lathe Ready for Giant Jobs


A huge lathe in the Industrial Di-
vision's Balboa Shops (which also is
a Naval Industrial Reserve Shipyard)
is one of five such lathes built for
the U.S. Navy by Niles-Bement Co.
of Philadelphia. The custom-built
lathe was purchased by PanCanal in
1917 for $39,126.08.
Today, it is estimated it would cost

The Certificate of Citizenship
Assistance Office located in Room 105
in the basement of Building 5534
(the old Diablo Heights Elementary
School) on Hains Street, Diablo,
will be closed temporarily effective
August 21 to permit alterations.
Information and assistance in pre-
paring application forms for certifi-
cates of citizenship may be obtained
by calling Mrs. Lois Thomas, 2-4202.
Her office will be located temporarily

Monday through Friday.


Musical Groups Will Entertain

On Cristobal "College Specials"


Two well-known musical groups
will make going back to school a
little less painful for Canal Zone stu-
dents returning to their studies in the
United States on the SS Cristobal's
"college specials" scheduled for
August 24 and September 4.
Tito Mouynes and his conjunto, a
four-piece combo of university stu-
dents who delighted college students
last year, will again offer music for
the dancing and listening pleasure of
returning collegeans on the August 24
"college special."
Mouyn6s, who plays the organ, is
a Canal Zone College graduate. Other
members of the combo who are stu-
dents of the University of Panama,
are Jos6 A. Riba, Carlos A. Rodgers,
and Joaquin Franco. After providing
Latin rhythms aboard the Cristobal,
the Tito Mouyn6s conjunto is sched-


uled to appear on television programs
in New Orleans.
The Herald Trio, a group of four
talented University of Tennessee stu-
dents currently appearing with the
Fred Waring Troupe, will provide
musical entertainment on the Sep-
tember 4 "college special" sailing of
the SS Cristobal. The Herald Trio,
which has delighted Canal Zone
audiences on several occasions, is
made up of Don Logan, Richard Car-
penter (son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard
Carpenter of Margarita), Dennis Roy,
and Lynn Williams.
In addition to the musical enter-
tainment, there will be other activi-
ties such as ping-pong, shuffleboard,
golf putting, record-playing sessions,
and bridge tournaments to assure the
young collegeans an enjoyable voy-
age before they get down to the

$800,000 to replace this elephant-size
machine tool. It would take from 3
to 4 years of procurement, manufac-
turing, delivery, and erection time
before a machine of such size could
be put into operation.

The giant engine lathe, designed
to handle any project with an up to
120-inch swing, is powered by
several electric motors. The main
drive is a 50 horsepower motor.
A 4-horsepower motor is on the tail
stock of the lathe.
Two generators, 150 kw. each,
provide power to run the motors.
Primarily, the five lathes made for
the U.S. Navy were developed to turn
the main propulsion pistons of the
U.S.S. Mississippi class battleship
and for turning extremely long and
large diameter propellor shafts for
ships of the Navy. Here on the Canal,
the lathe is used to produce special
parts and to machine parts, mostly for
tail shaft work and other projects for
the Dredging Division.
The four of these lathes are located
in key U.S. shipyards and in Pearl
Harbor.


$589,800 Low


Bid on Work


At Gorgas

An apparent low bid of $589,800
was submitted by Dillon Construc-
tion, Inc., on a project designed to
modernize the facilities of Section A
of Gorgas Hospital and bring them
up to a par with those of the new
hospital annex.
Two other contractors also bid on
the project. They were Abright Elec-
tric Construction Co., Inc., with a
total base bid of $824,646, and Diaz
& Guardia with a base bid of
$635,000. Bids were opened at
Balboa Heights.
Section A, now housing general
medical wards, will be converted into
four new wards with private rooms
and baths for from one to three
patients each. There will be two in-
tensive care units, doctors' offices
and examination rooms ifi addition
to a number of other architectural
changes. The entire building will be
air conditioned by an automatic air
conditioning and ventilating system.
The work is to be completed in
about a year and a half. It is the first
major renovation at the Gorgas Hos-
pital complex since addition of the
modern eight story Gorgas Hospital
annex completed in 1964.

serious business of studying. There
also will be prizes for the winners in
competitive games donated by the
Water Transportation Division and
the Panama Railroad.
In general, behavior of the hun-
dreds of Canal Zone youngsters re-
turning to their studies in the United
States via the SS Cristobal is good,
but misconduct by a small minority
has pointed up the need for a re-
minder that parents can be held
responsible for the actions of their
dependents.
A few students in the 16-22-year
age group have taken advantage of
the absence of parental supervision.
Boisterous and other improper con-
duct has inconvenienced fellow pas-
sengers and some incidents have
created safety hazards. A few have
resulted in malicious damage requir-
ing costly repairs.
Musical entertainment and orga-
nized activities have been planned to
ensure the most enjoyable cruise
possible for Canal Zone students re-
turning to their studies in the United
States on "college specials" scheduled
for August 24 and September 4.
Parents are advised, however, that
their children are expected to con-
duct themselves in a manner that will
allow all passengers to have a safe
and pleasant voyage. Passengers or
responsible parents can be held liable
for any property damage resulting
from misbehavior aboard the ship.

Savings Bonds Campaign another 89
PanCanal employees signed up
through Payroll Deduction Plan for
new subscriptions, additional bonds,

The biweekly PRD savings repre-
sented by the 387 employees' deduc-
tions total $9,222 and the face value

The projected face value for 1 year
for the additional purchases made
during the first 4 weeks of the cam-

Progress of the campaign is re-
ported steady, an excellent indication
of continued employee interest and
the effective counseling of the bonds
representatives.

ROTC Program.


Gorgas Hospital nurses honored a
group of 16 Pink Girls at tea in
appreciation of their volunteer work
at Gorgas Hospital during the
summer vacation.
The Pink (or Pinky) Girls, also
known as Civil Defense Nurses
Aides, are teenage girls who do vol-
unteer work at the hospital during
the summer months. After taking a
Red Cross First Aid and Home
Nursing Training Course, the girls
are assigned to perform duties in
different areas of the hospital, such
as sterile supplies, the diet kitchen,
medical wards, and women's surgical
ward. They make beds, give baths,
prepare food trays, run errands, take
patients to X-ray, and perform many
other tasks which free the nurses and
attendants for other use of their more
specialized skills in the hospital.
On the Pacific side, the Pink Girls
are sponsored by the Balboa Lions
Club, which furnishes the girls the
bright pink uniforms and white
aprons they wear, their pins, and
refreshments during their training
period. The American Legion Auxil-
iary sponsors the Pink Girls Program
on the Atlantic side.
In addition to providing service to
the community, the Pink Girl Pro-


gram stimulates the girls' interest in
nursing. Many nurses aides have gone
on to nurses training after high school
graduation.
The program was originally intro-
duced at Caribbean Girls State and
went into effect in 1956. For many
years the Pink Girl Program was
guided by Mrs. Charlotte Kennedy,
wife of a Lions Club member. At the
end of the training program the
Pinkies and their families are invited
to a Special Awards program at the
Tivoli Guest House at which each
Pinky receives a Citizenship Award
from the Lions Club in recognition of
the work she has done.


Psychedelic Lollipops

On Teen Club Scene
The Psychedelic Lollipops will
make their first appearance at the
New Balboa Teen Club dance tonight
from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m.
Dress will be sportswear. Members
are admitted free. A nominal fee is
charged non-members.
The club is open during the sum-
mer months each Monday and
Wednesday from 7 to 10 p.m.


Harold Brenner, Jr., of Coco Solo, machinist of the Industrial Division, is
thanking his lucky star and the safety spectacles he was wearing that he still
has a left eye. When Brenner was driving a keeper key into a shaft with a
lead hammer, a piece of the hammer chipped off and struck, dead center,
the left lens of his safety spectacles. The lens was shattered and pierced but
the piece of lead was stopped, saving Brenner the loss of an eye. Brenner
is to be made a member of the Wise Owl Club of America, the National
Society for the Prevention of Blindness, Inc.

every military rank, testified to its
popularity," Mrs. Hicks said.
The bags, green in color, will be
made of cotton material sturdy
enough to withstand the tropical heat
of Vietnam and remain serviceable
for their owners' personal effects
after the original contents are used.
An additional 250 bags will be
made to be sent to American National
Red Cross headquarters to be filled
with comfort articles and distributed
in hospitals all year 'round.
"Each bag we fill will contain a
card identifying the chapter and the
name of the cooperating agency,"
Mrs. Hicks said. They are being filled
with little gifts such as ballpoint pens,
stationery, paperback books, plastic
soap cases, toothbrush holders,
cigarette cases, nail clippers, combs,
pocket games, cigarette lighters, etc.
After last year's gift distribution
in Vietnam one serviceman wrote,
"I want to extend my appreciation
for your efforts and particularly for


the thoughts behind the gifts. It is
important that you realize we think
of your interest and your personal
participation."

A Panama La Verde

Hay otros paises donde parece que
todo queda dicho con anotar que su
color es verde. En PanamA, esta pa-
labra result pobre, inexpresiva, de-
bil. Hay que repetir sin cansarse:
verde, verde, verde, verde. .
Nunca crei que un mismo color
pudiera descomponerse en tantas gra-
daciones. Veo el verde amarillento y
charolado de las hojas de los plAta-
nos; el verde oscuro y nietAlico de
otros Arboles y arbustos. Hay verde
de 6xido, verde luminoso de piedra
preciosa, verde suave de mar ador-
mecido, verde dorado, como debi6
ser el de ondinas y sirenas.
Unas flores rojas, enonnes, como
estrellas incandescentes, abren sus
puntas en el misterio de las profun-
didades verdes. fQuien podria de-
cirme su nombre? . .
Loros y monos hacen estremecerse
las ramas de los Arboles, siguiendo
con saltos invisibles la lenta march
del buque a trav6s de los bosques.
iOh, PanamA La Verde! . .

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


El Hist6rico Arco Chato


Y la Historia del Canal


Original del Gran Historiador
Don Ernesto Castillero R.
Cuando el Almirante John G.
Walker vino a PanamA en 1899 al
frente de un grupo de t6cnicos, lo
hizo por autorizaci6n del Congreso
de los Estados Unidos que lo faculty
"para determinar la ruta mias practi-
cable a trav6s del Istmo americano
para un canal maritime entire el
Oc6ano Atlantico y el Pacifico". Eran
miembros de esa comisi6n que se
llam6 Istmica, personas de gran auto-
ridad en el campo de las ciencias y
habian sido seleccionadas por el Pre-
sidente MacKinley, a saber: Samuel
Pasco (ex Senador por Florida); Te-
niente Coronel Oswald H. Ernest;
Coronel Peter C. Haines; George S.
Morrison; y los Profesores Lewis M.
Haupt, William H. Burr, Alfred
Noble y Emory R. Johnson.
Bajo la direcci6n del Almirante
Walker, de reconocida reputaci6n
cientifica, se dispusieron los mencio-
nados personajes a hacer un studio
de las rutas accesibles a la construc-
ci6n de los dos Oc6anos, como que-
ria el Congreso: la de Nicaragua y la
de PanamA.
Por ese entonces el Canal de Pana-
mA estaba empezado ya. Los france-
ses habian invertido en 61 casi mil
millones de francos y la tercera parte
de la obra se habia ejecutado. La
Compaflia Francesa, en quiebra irre-
parable, pedia por su concesi6n, sus
trabajos, los pianos, los studios y la
maquinaria que tenia en el Istmo,
$109.141.500 (545.707.500 francos),
o sea la mitad de lo invertido por ella
en la sola excavacion.
El Almirante Walker y sus com-
pafieros hicieron una inspecci6n cui-
dadosa de la magna obra, estudiaron
los pianos y estimaron el valor real
de lo ejecutado.
En su anhelo por conocer hasta en
sus minimos detalles el teatro de ope-
raciones del canal, visitaron, como
era natural, la ciudad y sus alrede-
dores.
Las majestuosas ruinas de los her-
mosos edificios que el coloniaje dej6
en nuestra urbe, atrajeron su atenci6n
y fueron motivo de su observaci6n
minuciosa. El Colegio de los Jesuitas
frente a la Iglesia de San Jos6, el Con-
vento de las Monjas donde se em-
plaza hoy el Palacio Nacional, el
Convento de San Francisco que ocu-
pa en el present el Instituto Boli-
var (ruinas desaparecidas ya), y el
Templo de Santo Domingo, una frac-
ci6n del cual muestra todavia la sun-
tuosidad de su arquitectura. De todas
estas ruinas, la que mayormente atra-
jo la atenci6n de los cientificos ame-
ricanos fue la iltima. Tras su fachada
several admiraron ellos y todavia se
puede contemplar, el hermoso arco


chato que sostenia antailo el coro del
templo.
Aquella construcci6n extrafia, he-
cha de argamasa y ladrillos, levan-
tada como por un milagro a todo lo
ancho de la nave central del templo,
que ha soportado en su desnudez
ristica la intemperie de tantos siglos
sin sufrir desgaste ni deterioro, asom-
br6, mAs que admir6 a los cientificos
de ]a Comisi6n Istmica americana.
Cuenta la tradici6n que el arco
chato que hoy conocemos es el
tercer ensayo que su autor ejecut6
en el mismo lugar. Los dos primeros
se derrumbaron, quiza por defecto
de t6cnica, o por deficiente prepara-
ci6n de la argamasa, cediendo a la
gravedad. Al hacer el tercero, el terco
arquitecto, convencido de la perfec-
ci6n de su obra, se acost6 sobre 61
y orden6 quitar los andamios para
que, si se derrumbaba conmo los pri-
meros, sus escombros lo sepultasen
en castigo de su fracaso. Pero el arco
no s6lo no cedi6, sino que se man-
tuvo, y adn se le ve desafiando al
tiempo destructor y a las leyes de
la gravedad.
El Almirante Walker no ocult6 su
sorpresa ante aquel monument, y
aprendi6 la elocuente y muda lecci6n
que le ensefi6 el arco chato. Su
intuici6n le hizo ver por su medio
que en ninguna parte de la Am6rica,
como en Panams, el canal gozaria de
mayores garantias contra los temblo-
res de tierra. dQu6 prueba mejor
habia de la estabilidad de las capas
terrestres que ese arco, que en su
rectitud, estaba revelando la seguri-
dad future de la gran via?


Un Control

De Estatica

La electricidad estdtica acumulada
en el cuerpo y que puede ser de gran
peligro en ciertos sitios, puede ser
descargada por medio de las nuevas
tiras conductoras puestas en el mer-
cado por la General Scientific Equip-
ment Co. Las tiras, hechas de butilo
conductor, con alta resistencia a la
abrasion, eliminan la acumulaci6n de
estdtica en el cuerpo del usuario.
Este dispositivo, Ilamado conduct
Strap, evita los posibles peligros e
incomodidades causadas por las gran-
des cargas de estdtica generadas en
el cuerpo al caminar sobre alfombras
gruesas, particularmente en climas
frios y secos. Ademds de su uso indus-
trial, este product puede ser em-
pleado por personal de hotels, res-
taurantes, teatros y hospitals o don-
dequiera que existan problems de
estdtica.
