More Mules Part of Canal

Capacity Increase Study

A substantial increase in the num-
ber of locks towing locomotives is
one of the most important steps to
be taken toward achieving the
ultimate capacity of the Panama
The proposal that more ships could
be handled through the locks by the
addition of more mules has been
made by the Locks Improvement
Panel, headed by Truman H.
Hoenke, Chief of the Locks Divi-
sion, to the Working Committee of
the Canal Improvement studies
appointed by Gov. W. P. Leber.
Between 1959 and 1965 the Pan-
ama Canal acquired 57 new, faster
and more powerful towing loco-
motives to replace the old gray mules
that had been in service since 1914.
While the new locomotives have
been one of the important factors in
making feasible the number of ships
now being sent through the Canal
during a 24-hour period, even more
will be necessary to handle the traffic
build-up expected in the years to
The idea is that the Locks Division
could make full use of the system of
relay lockages if two crews of loco-
motives were available in each lane
of Gatun and Miraflores and addi-
tional locomotives provided to assist
arriving vessels to tie up and to
provide additional back-up replace-
ments for repairs and maintenance.
Relay lockages, now in operation
on a limited basis, have been found
necessary when a set of locks is put
on one-lane service, as it is at present
at Gatun during overhaul. Relay
lockages is a system which puts to
work two sets of mules on the same
lane, permitting two or more ships
to be locked through at the same
time in separate chambers. It is
effective only at Miraflores and
Gatun, where each lane has two or
more lock chambers. Pedro Miguel
has only one.
During normal transits, a ship or
a pair of ships traveling in tandem,
is locked through all chambers before
another ship enters for transit.
A reduction in the frequency and
duration of locks and culvert over-
haul is another idea under study.
With modifications being installed
as the locks are unwatered for re-
pairs, procedures are being pro-

vided to the point where, in the
future, it may be unnecessary to have
any one lock lane out of service for
more than 4 days because of an
emergency or overhaul.
Some other ideas for lock im-
provements considered by the panel
are: decrease in the time taken to
empty or fill the locks chambers;
modification of the towing and re-
turn track system on the locks; im-
proved methods of handling ships'
lines; improvement in safety factors
for ships at the locks-such as
augmenting the fendering system at
the approach and wing walls; im-
provement of locks control systems;
and installation of automatic lubrica-
tion systems for vital locks machinery.
Improvements at the locks have
been part of a continuing program
ever since the Canal opened to serv-
ice in accordance with the Panama
Canal's objective of providing satis-
factory service to Canal users. Now
because of the increase in traffic level,
improvements are more important
than ever. Ability to handle an in-
creasing number of ships has been
achieved not only through the use
of the new mules but by improve-
ment of overhaul techniques and
operating procedures.
The Locks Improvement Panel is
one of five under the direction of
the Working Committee headed by
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt. Others are
studying vessel limitations, water
supply and power, tests and proce-
dures, and navigation improvements.

Retiring Balboa

Port Captain

Receives Award
Capt. Richard C. Sergeant, who is
retiring this month as Port Captain
in Balboa, is a second generation
Panama Canal employee and a classic
example of "local boy makes good."
His father, the late W. R. Sergeant,
was with the former Panama Canal
Commissary Division at Mount Hope.
Captain Sergeant was born in Colon
Hospital and spent his boyhood on
the Atlantic side.
He attended Canal Zone schools,

Automation Feature of Powerful

New Tugs Being Built for Canal

Automation will be one of the main
features of the two powerful new
tugs now being built for the Panama
Canal by the Southern Shipbuilding
Co. of Slidell, La.
Both vessels are being equipped
with remote engine control equip-
ment which will permit handling
starting, stopping, and control of
pumps from the bridge. They will be
the first such craft to join the Panama
Canal floating equipment fleet.
The first new tug, being named
the Trinidad II, will be delivered
in May and the second, to be named
after the late former Gov. Julian L.
Schley, will arrive in August. They
will be put to work in Cristobal as
part of the Navigation Division fleet
helping to move heavy ship traffic at
the Atlantic entrance to the Canal
and at Gatun Locks.
Installation of the remote control
equipment is a first for the Southern
Shipbuilding Co. as well as for the
Canal. It is being provided by the
National Marine Service of St. Louis,
which has automated 30 or more
towboats and tugs operating in the
Mississippi River and in East Coast
ports. Similar equipment will be

installed in all other tugs constructed
for the Panama Canal in the future.
While remote control equipment
will result in changes in the duties
of the engineers assigned to the tug
fleet, it will not have any effect, at
present, on the size of the work
force. Engineers assigned to these
tugs will no longer spend their duty
hours aboard the craft. They will
be on duty, instead, in a special Port
Engineer's Office to be set up initially
in Cristobal. This engineer will be
on duty to service not only automatic
tugs but other Navigation Division
floating equipment.
So that Panama Canal personnel
will have first hand knowledge of the
new remote control equipment
before the tugs are delivered to the
Canal, four Canal technicians will go
to Slidell to observe the installation
of the equipment. They are A. A.
Rankin, the Marine Bureau's Float-
ing Equipment Inspector; R. E.
Walker, Senior Master, Towboat,
Cristobal; R. F. Huldtquist, Senior
Chief Engineer, Towboat, assigned
to the Port Captain's Office, Cris-
tobal; and George A. Dimick, marine

How Provisions of Hatch Act Affect YOU

Registering and voting is a privi-
lege that should be exercised by all
U.S. citizens. The Hatch Act guaran-
tees to Federal employees the right
to do so free from any interference,
persuasion, or official domination.
Pointing out that employees of the
Federal Government occupy posi-
tions of public trust and should be
responsive to community interest, the
U.S. Civil Service Commission has
prepared a summary of permitted
and prohibited activities.
The basic law states:
"It shall be unlawful for any per-
son employed in the executive branch
of the Federal Government, or any
agency or department thereof, to use
his official authority or influence for
the purpose of interfering with an
election of affecting the result thereof.
No officer or employee in the exe-
cutive branch of the Federal Govern-
ment, or any agency or department
thereof, shall take any active part in
political management or in political
campaigns. All such persons shall
retain the right to vote as they may

choose and to express their opinions
on all political subjects and can-
didates. * *" (Section 9(a), Act of
August 2, 1939, as amended.)

Registration. It is not only per-
missible but an obligation on all
citizens, including Federal em-
ployees, to register and vote.
Voting. The language of the law
specifically provides that all Federal
employees have the right to vote as
they choose.
Expression of opinions. Federal
employees have the right to express
political opinions, but they may not
take an active part in political man-
agement or in political campaigns.
Attendance at political rallies, con-
ventions, etc. Federal employees may
attend political rallies and conven-
tions to which the general public is
Nominating petitions. Federal em-
ployees are permitted to sign nomi-
nating petitions in support of
individuals whom they wish to

see become candidates for office.
Contributions. It is lawful for
Federal employees to make voluntary
contributions to a regularly consti-
tuted political organization, provided
such contribution is not made in a
Federal building or to some other
Federal employee.
Political pictures. It is lawful for
Federal employees to display polit-
ical pictures in their homes if they
so desire.
Badges, buttons, and stickers. It
is lawful for Federal employees to
wear political badges or buttons or
to display political stickers on their
private automobiles.
Constitutional amendments, refer-
endums, etc. Section 18 (5 U.S.C.,
118n) states an exception relating to
elections not specifically identified
with National or State issues or
political parties. It reads as follows:
Nothing in the second sentence of
section 9(a) or in the second sentence
of section 12(a) of this Act shall be
construed to prevent or prohibit any

Adelaide and Lois Wilson are
both active in the field of flower

for Your Church they demonstrate
with prose and picture that flowers

Henry Legler, a former advertising
executive, has become known as one
of America's leading authorities on
retirement. His book How To Make
the Rest of Your Life the Best of
Your Life gives a practical plan for
learning how not to retire from life
when you retire from work. In it
are described ways to find the inter-
ests and activities that suit you best,
ways to keep your health, good
temper, and independence, and also
to supplement your income. Case
histories provide variety.
The story of a noted sculptor,
William Zorach, is contained in his
autobiography, Art Is My Life.
Brought to the United States as a
small boy from Lithuania, Zorach
grew up in Cleveland. In 1930 he
had his first exhibition of sculpture
in New York and when he died in
1966 his work was in more than 80
museums and galleries. This is a
very personal story of a gentle and
kindly man who was totally devoted
to art.

WAC Recruitment

Facilities Available
Young women interested in join-
ing enlisted or officer ranks of the
Women's Army Corps now have
recruitment facilities available in the
Canal Zone.
Recent arrival of three WAC com-
missioned officers in U.S. Army
Forces Southern Command makes
possible the formation of a selection
board necessary for the acceptance
of new personnel in the corps.
The following qualifications are
required of applicants for the enlisted
ranks: Be between the ages of 18

Captain Sergeant

(Continued from p. 1)

worked at summer jobs with the
Canal and was graduated from Cris-
tobal High School in 1929. He
attended New York State Maritime
College and went to sea in 1936 with
the Luckenbach, C.B. Mallory and
Argonaut Lines out of New York
and earned his master's license in
His goal was to become a Panama
Canal pilot, but in those days an
aspiring pilot usually started out in
other jobs. He was dock foreman in
Cristobal in 1939, was promoted to
second mate aboard the Panama
Canal tug Favorite in 1941; to master
of the tug Gorgona in Balboa in 1943,
and became pilot-in-training in 1944.
He became a full-fledged pilot in
1946 and held that position until
1962, when he was promoted to
Assistant Port Captain in Balboa.
He became Captain of the Port in
1965, succeeding Capt. Elmer G.
Abbott, who had been the first
civilian to be appointed Port Cap-
tain in Balboa. Before that, the job
always had been filled by a U.S.
Navy officer.
During the time that he has been
boss of the Balboa Port, Captain Ser-
geant has acted as Navigation Divi-
sion Chief and Marine Director and
made significant contributions in
solving the problems of getting more
and bigger ships through the Canal.
He was one of those commended
recently by Gov. W. P. Leber for
their roles in clearing the Panama
Canal channel after the Shozan Maru
grounded in Gaillard Cut. His per-
formance was cited as "outstanding
in conning the large unwieldy vessel
through the remainder of the Cut to
safe moorings at Gamboa."
Another commendation came before
his retirement in the form of an out-
standing performance award and a
check for $200 presented by Lt. Gov.
H. R. Parfitt at a farewell luncheon
at the Albrook Officers' Club.
The citation stated that this was
"official recognition and commenda-
tion for an outstanding record of per-
fonnance achieved during his many
years of exemplary service for the
Panama Canal and Canal Zone

Draft Allowance

Goes to 371/2 Feet

Effective April 11

For the first time in nearly 2 years,
the Panama Canal has reduced its
draft allowances for ships using the
Canal to a maximum tropical fresh
water draft of 37 feet 6 inches.
According to a notice sent out by
Capt. A. L. Gallin, Chief of the
Navigation Division, the new draft
allowance will become effective
April 11 in view of the latest Gatun
Lake level predictions.
The level of Gatun Lake stood
at 85.18 feet as of 8 a.m., Monday,
and has been falling at an average of
.023 foot a day due to extreme dry
season conditions and heavy Canal
When the lake is at the rainy
season high level of 86.5 or more
feet, the Canal is able to permit big
ships of certain types to pass through
the waterway with drafts as deep as
40 feet tropical fresh water. This
is reduced to 39 feet and lower as
the lake level drops below 86.5 feet.
Last year, 38.5 feet tropical fresh
water was the minimum draft allow-
ance for the whole season.
The record high dry season draft
in 1967 was made possible by cur-
tailment of water use for power
generation at Gatun Hydroelectric
Station and extensive maintenance
dredging of Gaillard Cut during 1966
plus the fact that the run-off from
the Gatun Lake watershed area was
high for the dry season.

El Canal de Panama

Traera mas "Mulas"

Un aumento substantial en el nA-
mero de locomotoras de remolque de
las esclusas es uno de los mas im-
portantes pasos que se darAn con el
fin de alcanzar la mAxima capacidad
del Canal de Panama.
La propuesta de que mAs naves
pueden ser transitadas por las esclu-
sas con la adici6n de mas "mulas",
ha sido hecha por el Grupo de Mejo-
ras a las Esclusas, presidido por
Truman H. Hoenke, Jefe de la Divi-
si6n de Esclusas, al Comit6 de Tra-
bajo de los Estudios de Mejoras al
Canal, nombrado por el Gobernador
W. P. Leber. (Foto en la secci6n
Entre 1959 y 1965, el Canal de
PanamA adquiri6 57 locomotoras
nuevas, mas rapidas y poderosas, en
reemplazo de las viejas que habian
estado en servicio desde 1914. Al
paso que las nuevas "mulas" han
constituido important factor en el
ni'mero de barcos que se hace tran-
sitar actualmente por el Canal en un
period de 24 horas, todavia mis
seran necesarias para manejar el
aumento de trAfico que se espera
durante los pr6ximos afios.

recibirse y procesarse esa misma se-
mana, a mis tardar, el lunes al

porcionan locomotoras adicionales
para ayudar a las embarcaciones que
llegan a amarrarse a la pared central,
y se proporciona, ademis, reemplazos
para las locomotoras que estin siendo
acondicionadas o reparadas.
Los pasajes de esclusa en relevos,
que se utilizan actualmente en base
limitada, se hacen necesarios cuando
una de las vias de las esclusas es
puesta fuera de servicio, como suce-
de actualmente en Gatiln durante el
reacondicionamiento. Los pasajes de
esclusa en relevos son un sistema con
el cual trabajan dos juegos de mules
en la misma via, permitiendo que
dos o mis naves sean transitadas por
las esclusas al mismo tiempo, en ci-
maras separadas. Da resultado .s6lo
en Miraflores y Gat(n, donde cada
via tiene dos o mis cimaras. Pedro
Miguel s6lo tiene una.
Normalmente, una nave, o dos
naves en tandem, pasan a travis de
todas las cimaras antes de que otra
nave sea admitida dentro de las
Reducir la frecuencia y duraci6n
del reacondicionamiento de las es-
clusas y las alcantarillas es otra idea
que se estudia. Con las modificacio-
nes que se les hacen, cuando las es-
clusas son secadas para las repara-
ciones, se estA estableciendo un pro-
cedimiento que en el future, llegarA
a un punto en que no serA necesario
poner fuera de servicio ninguna de
las vias de las esclusas por mas de
4 dias debido a un reacondiciona-
miento de emergencia.
Algunas de las otras ideas de me-
joras a las esclusas que estudia el
grupo son: disminuci6n del tiempo
necesario para llenar o vaciar las
canaras de las esclusas; modificaci6n
del sistema de rieles para los remol-
ques y al regreso; mejoras al mitodo
de manejar los cables; mejoras en
los factors de seguridad para los

El Capitan Sergeant Cierra

Brillante Hoja de Servicios

El Capitan Richard C. Sergeant,
que se jubila este mes como CapitAn
del Puerto de Balboa, es un emplea-
do del Canal de Panama de la segun-
da generaci6n y un ejemplo clAsico
de un "muchacho local que triunfa".
(Foto en la secci6n inglesa.)
Su padre, el finado W. R. Sergeant,
trabaj6 en la antigua Divisi6n de
Comisariatos del Canal de PanamA
en Mount Hope. El Capitan Sergeant
naci6 en el Hospital Col6n y pas6
su nifiez en el sector AtlAntico.
Asisti6 a las escuelas de la Zona
del Canal, trabaj6 en empleos de
verano y se gradu6 en la Escuela Se-
cundaria de Crist6bal en 1929. Asis-
ti6 al Colegio Maritimo del Estado
de Nueva York y se hizo a la mar en
1936 con las lines Luckenbach,
C. B. Mallory y Argonaut y obtuvo
su licencia de capitan en 1939.
Su meta era ilegar a ser prActico
del Canal de Panami, pero en aque-
llos dias un aspirante a prActico ge-
neralmente comenzaba con otros tra-
bajos. Fue capataz de muelles en
Crist6bal en 1939, fue ascendido a
segundo official a bordo del remolca-
dor Favorite del Canal de PanamA
en 1941; a capitin del remolcador
Gorgona en Balboa en 1943, y en
1944 lleg6 a scr aprendiz de prActico
del Canal. En 1046 se convirti6 en
prictici del Canal on todo el sentido

de la palabra y se mantuvo alli hasta
1962 cuando fue ascendido a Ayu-
dante del Capitin del Puerto de
En 1965 sucedi6 en la Capitania
del Puerto de Balboa al Capitin
Elmer G. Abbott, quien habia sido
el primer civil en ocupar el puesto
de Capitan del Puerto de Balboa.
Anteriormente ese puesto lo ocupaba
solamente un official de la Armada
de los Estados Unidos.
Durante el tiempo que estuvo a
cargo del Puerto de Balboa, el Capi-
tin Sergeant actu6 como Jefe de la
Division de Navegaci6n y de la Di-
recci6n de Marina e hizo valiosas
contribuciones para resolver los pro-
blemas del trAnsito de barcos mis
grandes a trav6s del Canal.
Fue uno de los que recibieron el
elogio del Gobernador Leber por
haber despejado el cauce del Canal
de PanamA despu6s que el Shozan
Maru encallara en el Corte Gaillard.
Su labor fue catalogada como "sobre-
saliente al conducir esta nave grande
y dificil de manejar a trav6s del resto
del Corte a un amaradero seguro en
Antes de su jubilaci6n recibi6 otro
elogio cuando el Vicegobernador
II. R. Parfitt le entreg6 un premio

Representantes del Grupo de Circulo Familiar de Pedro Miguel entregaron un cheque para el Comit6 Latinoame-
ricano de Becas, que actualmente mantiene a tres estudiantes en la Universidad de PanamA y siete en la Universi-
dad de la Zona del Canal. La tesorera del grupo, Sra. Adica de Moore entreg6 el cheque a Frank A. Castles,
Superintendent de Escuelas de la Zona del Canal en su despacho en el Edificio de Asuntos Civiles. Aparecen, de

Sera Reducido el Calado

A los Barcos en el Canal

Por primera vez, en casi 2
afios, el Canal de Panama ha
reducido el calado autorizado
a los barcos que usan el Canal,
a un mAximo en agua dulce
tropical de 37 pies 6 pulgadas.
De acuerdo con un aviso en-
viado por el Capitan A. L.
Gallin, Jefe de la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n, el nuevo calado
sera efectivo el 11 de abril, con-
siderando las filtimas predic-
ciones sobre el nivel del Lago
El nivel del Lago Gatuln per-
manecia en 85.18 pies a las 8
a.m. del lunes y ha continuado
descendiendo un promedio de
.023 de pie al dia, debido a las
condiciones extremes de esta-
ci6n seca que existen y al
fuerte trAfico por el Canal de
Cuando el lago alcanza su
altura propia de estaci6n llu-
viosa, de 86.5 pies o mas, el
Canal puede permitir a las
naves grandes, de cierto tipo,
transitar por la via interoceA-
nica calando hasta 40 pies en
agua dulce tropical.
Ese calado se reduce a 39
pies y todavia mas, a media
que el nivel del lago baja de-

bajo del nivel de los 86.5 pies.
El afio pasado, el calado mi-
nimo que se permiti6 en agua
dulce tropical en toda la esta-
ci6n seca, fue de 38.5 pies.
Este alto calado de la esta-
ci6n seca de 1967, que estable-
ci6 marca, fue possible debido
a la reducci6n en el uso del

agua para general energia el6c-
trica en la Estaci6n Hidroeldc-
trica de Gati6n y al dragado ex-
tensivo de mantenimiento que
se hizo en el Corte Gaillard
durante 1966, ademAs de que
la precipitaci6n en la Cuenca
del Lago Gatln fue sumamente
alta durante la estaci6n seca.

Pronto Tendra el Canal

Novisimos Remolcadores

La automatizaci6n sera una de las
principles caracteristicas de dos
nuevos y poderosos remolcadores que
construye actualmente para el Canal
de PanamA la Southern Shipbuilding
Co., de Slidell, Louisiana.
Ambas embarcaciones estin sien-
do dotadas de equipo de maquina-
ria a control remote, lo que permi-
tirA arrancar y detener las miquinas
desde el puente de mando, lo mismo
que operar las bombas. Serin las pri-
meras embarcaciones de su clase en
la flota de equipo flotante del Canal
de PanamA.
El primero de los nuevos remolca-
dores, que se IlamarA Trinidad II,
sera entregado en mayo y el segundo,
que llevarA el nombre del ex Cober-
nador de la Zona del Canal Julian L.
Schley, ya fallecido, llegarA en agos-
to. Seran destinados al Puerto de
Crist6bal como parte de la flotilla de
remolcadores de la Divisi6n de Na-
vegaci6n que ayudan a mover el
fuerte trAfico de barcos en la entrada
del Canal en el AtlAntico y en las
Esclusas de Gatin.
La instalaci6n del equipo de con-
trol remote es tambi6n la primera
operaci6n de esa clase que efectra
la Southern Shipbuilding Co. Ha
sido suministrado por la National
Marine Service, de St. Louis, que ha
automatizado mis de 30 remolcado-
res que actualmente operan en el Rio
Mississippi y en puertos de la Costa

Atlintica de Estados Unidos. Equipo
similar sern instalado en todos los
otros remolcadores que se constru-
yan en el future para el Canal de
A pesar de que el equipo de con-
trol remote provocarA el cambio en
los deberes de los maquinistas asig-
nados a la flotilla de remolcadores,
no tendrA al present ningln efecto
sobre el nmimero de unidades en el
personal. Los maquinistas destinados
a esos remolcadores no pasarAn sus
horas de trabajo a bordo de las em-
barcaciones. SerAn destinados, en
cambio, a una Oficina del Maquinista
del Puerto, que sera instalada inicial-
mente en Crist6bal. El maquinista
estarA en servicio no s61o para traba-
jar en los remolcadores automatiza-
dos sino en el resto del equipo flo-
tante de la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n.
Con el fin de que el personal del
Canal de PanamA tenga un conoci-
miento director del nuevo equipo de
control remote, antes de que los re-
molcadores scan entregados al Canal,
cuatro tecnicos del Canal viajarin a
Slidell a observer la instalaci6n del
equipo. Son ellos A. A. Rankin, Ins-
pector de Equipo Flotante de la Di-
reccion de Marina; R. E. Walker,
Capitan de Remolcador de Primera
Categoria, en Crist6bal; R. F. Huldt-
quist, Maquinista Jefe de Remolca-

nes de la apacible tranquilidad pa-
triarcal en que se agitan sus escasos
moradores, mezcla de la raza aut6c-
tona y la europea.
Como todo pueblo colonial, cons-
taba de tres elements esenciales:
una plazuela, la iglesia y el cura.
El santo var6n, de avanzada edad,
cabellos blancos, paso lento y sotana
raida, se preocupaba tanto de la vida
spiritual como de la material de sus
feligreses. En su concept, el pan
intangible de la oraci6n es tan nece-
sario para el alma, como lo es el
alimento efectivo que exige el cuer-
po para endurecer el miisculo e im-
primir actividad al organismo.
El santo var6n buscaba con afin
la formula que le permitiera combi-
nar el precepto sagrado de "dar al
C6sar lo que es del Cesar y a Dios
lo que es de Dios", en tal forma que,
el rebafio encomendado a su direc-
ci6n religiosa, alcanzara la salvaci6n
eterna al mismo tiempo que lograra
cierto bienestar terrenal.
La fe, en esos tiempos, ardia como
limpara inextinguible en los cora-
zones, de suerte que el sacramento
de la penitencia se practicaba con
fervor. Y un dia, el buen cura, se
dijo: "Si el sacramento limpia las
conciencias, tambidn debe utilizarse
para mejorar las condiciones impera-
tivas de los fieles". Pens6 que si los
Padrenuestros y las Avemarias, las
misas y los rosarios, impuestos como

penitencia, place al Sefior, no menos
grato le seria que vista se tradujera en
trabajos provechosos, ya que "tra-
bajar es orar".
Desde entonces, a los fieles que
acudian al confesionario a desgranar
en voz lenta y contrita sus pecados,
el senior Cura, luego de confortarlos
con sencillos consejos, les imponia,
como desagravio de sus faltas, la
obligaci6n de sembrar un nlmero
de naranjos en consonancia con la
suma y la gravedad de las culpas
En torno del villorrio patriarcal
se descuajaron los montes; lentamen-
te crecieron los arbustos, propiedad
de cada pecador y abundaron las
Con el girar de los afios, Campana,
que se halla al borde de la carretera
national y sus naranjos robustos y
lozanos, cargados de frutos de oro,
han intensificado su valor hasta el
extreme de convertirlos en demos-
traci6n alentadora de los beneficios
que la agriculture ofrece.
Asi, gracias al buen cura de avan-
zada edad, cabellos blancos, paso
lento y sotana raida, que en 6pocas
remotas fue pastor de esas almas
transparentes de fe, los pecados, re-
dimidos a trav6s del tribunal de la
confesi6n y fertilizados por las ben-
diciones perdonadoras de sus manos
marfilinas, han florecido en azahares
de riquezas.

El Guardaespaldas del Trabajador

dQui6n no ha oido hablar de los guardaespaldas? Algunos politicos y
hombres que desempefian posiciones importantes no dan un paso sin star
protegidos por ellos. En general, todo el que corre un riesgo de perder la
vida u opera en un ambiente hostile o que ofrece algun peligro, busca la
protecci6n que ofrecen los guardaespaldas. Precisamente esa es su misi6n:
El obrero tambidn cuenta con un guardaespaldas. Se trata del resguardo
que le ha sido colocado a la maquina que opera; aqu6l se encuentra alli con
el explicit prop6sito de protegerlo contra un accident y posiblemente hasta
de salvarle la vida. Como se ve la misi6n es la misma. El trabajador desarrolla
una actividad que implica correr algunos riesgos y el resguardo lo protege.
No obstante el obvio beneficio que ofrecen los resguardos, los jefes de
seguridad de la mayoria de las plants encuentran muchas dificultades para
hacerselo comprender a los trabaiadores. Muchos de ellos creen, err6nea-
mente, que han sido colocados alli con el inico fin de proteger, no al traba-
jador, sino a la mAquina y algunos subrepticiamente llegan hasta a eliminarlo
de la miquina o herramienta con que trabajan.
Es convenient que todos los trabajadores estin firmemente convencidos
de que la gerencia y los fabricantes de maquinarias colocan los resguardos con
la intenci6n expresa de evitarles accidents a ellos, los trabajadores, y que
para su propia conveniencia lo mAs inteligente que pueden hacer es mantener
los resguardos en su puesto.

barcos dentro de las esclusas-tales
como ampliar el sistema de defenses
en las paredes central y laterales;
mejoras en los sistemas de control
de las esclusas; e instalaci6n de sis-
temas automaticos de lubricaci6n en
la maquinaria vital de las esclusas.
Las mejoras a las esclusas han sido
part de un program permanent
desde que el Canal empez6 a pres-
tar servicios, de acuerdo con el obje-
tivo del Canal de PanamA, de prestar
el mejor servicio possible a sus usua-
rios. Actualmente, debido al aumento
del trafico, las mejoras son mas im-
portantes que nunca. La habilidad de
manejar un siempre creciente nu-
mero de naves ha sido lograda, no
s6lo por medio del uso de nuevas
"mulas", sino por medio del mejora-
miento de las tecnicas de reacondi-
cionamiento y de los procedimientos
de operaci6n.
El Grupo de Mejoras a las Esclu-
sas es uno de cinco que estAn bajo
la direcci6n del Grupo de Trabajo,
presidido por el Vicegobernador
H. R. Parfitt. Otros estin estudiando
las limitaciones de los barcos, el
suministro de agua y la energia,
pruebas y procedimientos y mejoras
a la navegaci6n.
