Veteran Executive

To Head C.Z. Scouts

William J. (Jack) Hays, the new
Scout Executive of the Canal Zone
Council, arrived on the Isthmus this
week after ending 14 years of service
as assistant Scout Executive of
Region 6 of the Blue Ridge Council,
Boy Scouts of America, Greenville,
During the 14 years he worked as
administrator of the camping program
for scouts in eight South Carolina
counties, he had been associated with
more than 50,000 boys. Many scouts
who worked with Hays are now
doctors, ministers, and outstanding
business men.
Hays is a veteran of World War II
and served in the European Theater
from 1942 to 1945 with the rank of
first lieutenant. He was awarded the
Distinguished Flying Cross, the

Aug. 5 Checks

To Show Raises

For Employees
Pay increases adding up to some
$4.5 million annually will take effect
July 14 and will show up in the pay-
checks issued August 5 to more than
11,000 Panama Canal employees.
Most wage categories will receive
the pay increases, which will go to
7,400 non-U.S.-citizen employees
and 3,600 U.S.-citizen employees.
The increase for non-manual and
postal employees is the second phase
of a three-phase pay package enacted
by Congress last fall. The first phase
increase, last October, for non-
manual and postal employees, aver-
aged 4.5 percent and 6 percent,
respectively. The third phase in-
crease is scheduled for July 1969.
Police, firemen, and teachers re-
ceive a retroactive increase to Octo-
ber 8, 1967, that averages 7 percent,
plus the July 1968 second phase
increase of about 10 percent, the
amount varying according to grade.
Wage rates for Manual Category
employees and related wage board
employees will be increased as a
result of the scheduled annual
reviews and will average about 4 per-
cent. Benefiting from this pay raise
are apprentices, class 4 learners, and
railroad group employees.

Red Cross Volunteers
To Meet Wednesday
A meeting of all Red Cross volun-
teers serving Gorgas Hospital will be
held Wednesday, July 17, at 1 p.m.,
in the Red Cross Recreation Lounge,
Building C, Gorgas Hospital.

Wrap Garbage

For Disposal
All household garbage should be
wrapped before disposal in garbage
cans, Acting Supply and Community
Service Director R. K. Erbe reminds
Canal Zone householders.
Wrapping garbage makes disposal
more convenient for the householder,
makes garbage easier to handle,
saves space, and cuts down on de-
terioration of equipment.
Paper bags from the retail stores
make good garbage containers. Other
excellent garbage containers are tin
cans and empty milk cartons.

He said he became acutely aware
of the valuable lessons learned in
scouting while a B-24 pilot. On his
34th bombing mission from his base
in Italy with the 15th Air Force his
plane received a direct hit. Hays and
his crew bailed out over the Alps.
For 5 days he survived the rough
mountain terrain relying primarily on
his training received as a Boy Scout
in Mansfield, Ga. He later was cap-
tured by the Germans and spent
6 months in a prisoner of war camp,
living mostly on cabbage soup.
Upon his return to Mansfield, Ga.,
he found the Boy Scout troop to
which he belonged was no longer
active. The Mansfield Lions Club
undertook the task of reactivating the
troop and asked Hays to be scout-
master. The work was so rewarding,
he decided to follow scouting as a
He attended the University of
Georgia and is a member of Hiram
Lodge No. 68, AF & AM.
Mrs. Hays taught in Hanna High
and Lakeside schools during most of
the 14 years her husband was with
the South Carolina Boy Scouts.
They have three children: Bill, a
graduate of the University of Georgia
and now working on his master's
degree; Harriet, a recent graduate of
Hanna High School where she was
a first honor student, and who plans
to enter Canal Zone College, and

New Personnel PC Improvements Panel

Board Chief Makes Recommendations

Arrives in Zone
The Canal Zone Civilian Personnel
Policy Coordinating Board has an-
nounced the appointment of Henry
W. Finn as Executive Officer.
Finn, who arrived in the Canal
Zone Monday, replaces Stuart L.
Reed who retired last March. Finn
comes to his new position from the
U.S. Army Harry Diamond Labora-
tories in Washington, D.C., where he
was serving as Chief, Employment
and Services Branch.
Finn is not new to the Canal Zone,
having worked for local military
Civilian Personnel Offices from 1956
to 1961. His last assignment in this
area was at Albrook AFB where he
was Chief, Employee Training.
During that period of time, he was
also an instructor in the Florida State
University Canal Zone Program.
Finn holds a bachelor of science
degree from Boston College and a
master of arts degree from Michigan
State University.
Finn was accompanied to the
Isthmus by his wife, Barbara, and
a daughter, Patricia.

C.Z. Policeman Named

To Law Review Staff

Police Sgt. Blance C. Iverson of
the Canal Zone Police Division, who
completed his first year of Law
School at Louisiana State University
in the top 10 percent of his class,
has been invited to become a mem-
ber of the Louisiana Law Review.
The invitation was accompanied by
the congratulations of the Louisiana
Law Review editorial board on
Sergeant Iverson's outstanding per-
formance as a first-year student.
The Louisiana Law Review is an
annual publication containing articles
written by leading legal educators on
topics of interest in developments
and transitions of the law.
The comments and case notes are
written by law school students invited
to join the law review because of out-
standing academic performance dur-
ing the first 2 semesters. Invitation
to write in the Law Review is limited

to the top 10 percent of each class
and is considered one of the highest
honors a law student can obtain.

Relay and merry-go-round lock-
ages, faster filling and spilling times
and possible additional tugs and tow-
ing locomotives are a few of the
recommendations of the Tests and
Procedures Panel of the current Canal
improvement studies on ways to
achieve maximum Canal capacity.
The relay lockage procedure puts
to work two sets of towing locomo-
tives in the same lane and permits
two or more ships to be locked
through at the same time in separate
chambers. Merry-go-round lockages
use one set of locomotives to take a
vessel through the locks.
The Tests and Procedures Panel,
under Walter A. Dryja, Assistant
Marine Director, is one of five panels
established to develop information for
the Working Committee of the Canal
Improvement Program, headed by
Lt. Gov. H. R. Parfitt. Other mem-
bers of the committee include John
D. Hollen, Chief of the Executive
Planning Staff; Capt. Donald A.
Dertien, USN, Marine Director; Col.
James A. Betts, Engineering and
Construction Director; and Philip L.
Steers, Jr., Comptroller.
To devise procedures for helping
develop and determine the estimated
capacity of the Canal, tests were con-
ducted by the panel at Pedro Miguel
and Miraflores Locks to establish the
maximum capacity. The tests in-
cluded time studies of regular, relay
and merry-go-round lockages, relays
in the lower level at Miraflores, Mira-
flores Lake crossing times, paired
lockages in which the centerwall
culvert was used to fill both lanes
simultaneously and festooned lines,
slack lines which can act as temporary
fenders. Each of these tests was
studied in detail to evaluate the effect
on Canal capacity.
During the test periods, specific
requirements were established to
simulate capacity conditions. Each
vessel transiting the locks under study
was timed from arrival to release of
the locomotives at the other end.
At Miraflores and Pedro Miguel,
vessels were also timed across Mira-
flores Lake to determine the effect
of the lake on maximum capacity.
The timing was done by recorders
on the locks walls and in the control

house, using synchronized electric
clocks. Each transit was separated
into individual elements including the
time for locomotives to secure the
vessel, moving into and out of the
locks, moving between levels, filling
or spilling chambers, and locomotive
return times.
Average times were developed for
each element for seven beam ranges
and tandems. For vessels of 90-foot
beam and greater, the times were
calculated separately for ballast and
laden conditions. Generally, the times
increased as the size of the vessels
increased except for water handling
times which remained constant for all
size vessels in respective chambers.
The times derived during the tests
have been submitted to A. T. Kear-
ney, the consultant firm skilled in
systems analysis and responsible for
a computer similation technique state-
ment on Canal capacity,
Other factors which must be con-
sidered in statements of capacity are
reduction in lane and culvert outage
times, interactions between vessels,
fog, improvements in water han-
dling times, modernization of lock
systems and modifications of lockage

The Malayan pineapple industry
reached new records in 1966. Total
exports of canned pineapple for the
last 2 years reached an all-time high,
with exports of 3.04 million cases in
1965 and 3.21 million cases in 1966.
Malaysia thus ranks as second largest
exporting country in the world; in
terms of Malaysian exports, this is the
sixth largest export commodity, the
export value for 1966 being more
than $50 million. The two largest
customers in 1966 were the United
Kingdom, which bought 38 percent
of the exports and the United States,
with 19 percent.

attractive red-haired nurse whose first
assignment outside of the United
States was Panama. She says Kuala

populated areas is reportedly not too
difficult over roads built and main-
tained by the British.
After leaving the Isthmus July 12,
she will return home to Philadelphia
for a holiday and then will proceed
to Malaya via Spain, Africa, and
Hong Kong. She will take an orienta-

Cristobal Physician

Aids Disabled Sailor

"In the best tradition of the sea,"
Dr. James E. Keeton of Jackson,
Miss., ship's surgeon on the Panama
Canal's SS Cristobal, answered a U.S.
Coast Guard call for medical help and
attended a disabled crewman from
the tug Captain Wes shortly after the
SS Cristobal entered the southwest
pass of the Mississippi River recently
en route to New Orleans.
The crewman, Edward Adams,
believed to have suffered a heart
attack, had been transferred from
the tug Captain Wes to the Coast
Guard cutter Point Verde.
The cutter, en route to Venice, La.,
came alongside the SS Cristobal and
Dr. Keeton went on board. He ren-
dered emergency treatment and con-
firmed that a heart attack had
A U.S. Public Health Service doc-
tor, flown from New Orleans to the
cutter, concurred in Dr. Keeton's
diagnosis. When the cutter arrived at
Venice, the patient was transferred
to shore and hospitalized. His con-
dition was reported as improved
prior to reaching shore.
The Point Verde returned Dr.
Keeton to the SS Cristobal off Venice,
La., and the latter vessel proceeded
up river to New Orleans.
The U.S. Coast Guard, New
Orleans, sent the following radio
message to the SS Cristobal: "Your

willing cooperation and the services
rendered by Dr. James E. Keeton to
Edward Adams in tug Captain Wes
*medico is greatly appreciated."
("Medico is a term applied to all
incidents involving medical services
to vessels.)
The Chief of the Panama Canal's
Water Transportation Division also
commended the Cristobal's Master,
Capt. C. L. Foley and Dr. Keeton
for their prompt and efficient hand-
ling of an emergency.

Capacidad del Canal

Cruces de esclusa en relevo y del
tipo "merry-go-round", tiempos mis
cortos para llenar y vaciar las esclusas
y possible adici6n de nuevos remol-
cadores y locomotoras de remolque,
son algunas de las recomendaciones
del Grupo de Pruebas y Procedi-
mientos, uno de los que efectuian los
actuales studios de mejoras al Canal,
con el fin de que el Canal alcance
su mAxima capacidad.
El procedimiento de relevos pone
a trabajar dos equipos de locomotoras
de remolque en la misma via y per-
mite a dos o mAs naves cruzar las
esclusas al mismo tiempo en cinaras
separadas. El procedimiento "merry-
go-round" usa un equipo de locomo-
toras de remolque para llevar una
nave a trav6s de las esclusas.
El Grupo de Pruebas y Procedi-
mientos, bajo la direcci6n del Sub-
director de Marina Walter A. Dryja,
es uno de cinco grupos dedicados a
desarrollar informaci6n para el Co-
mitf de Trabajo del Programa de
Mejoras al Canal, presidido por el
Vicegobernador H. R. Parfitt. Los
otros miembros del comity son John
D. Hollen, Jefe de la Oficina de Pla-
nificaci6n; el CapitAn Donald A.
Dertien, de la Armada de Estados
Unidos, Director de Marina; el Coro-
nel James A. Betts, Director de Inge-
nieria y Construcci6n, y el Contralor
del Canal de PanamA Philip L.
Steers, Jr.
Para establecer procedimientos
que ayuden a desarrollar y determi-
nar la capacidad calculada del Canal,
el grupo llev6 a cabo pruebas en las
Esclusas de Pedro Miguel y de Mira-
flores, para establecer la capacidad
mAxima del Canal. Las pruebas in-
cluyeron studios sobre el tiempo
que duran los cruces de esclusas re-
gulares, en relevo y en "merry-go-
round"; la duraci6n de los relevos en
el nivel inferior de Miraflores y del
cruce del Lago Miraflores; cruces
de esclusa apareados en los cuales la
aleantarilla central se usa para llenar
ambas vias simultineamente, y fes-
tones o cuerdas flojas que pueden
actuar como amortiguadores transito-
rios. Cada una de estas pruebas fue
estudiada detalladamente con el fin
de evaluar su efecto sobre la capa-
cidad del Canal.
Durante los periods de prueba,
se establecieron requisitos especifi-

cos para similar condiciones de capa-
cidad. Cada nave que transitaba las
esclusas en studio, era cronometrada
desde su llegada hasta que la soltaban
las locomotoras en el extreme opues-
to. En Miraflores y Pedro Miguel se
cronometraba a las naves en su cruce
del Lago Miraflores para determinar
el efeoto del lago sobre la capacidad
Se cronometraba por medio de re-
gistradores en las paredes de las es-
clusas y en la torre de control, que
usaban relojes el6ctricos sincroniza-
dos. Cada trAnsito se separaba en los
elements individuals, que incluyen
el tiempo que necesitan las locomo-
toras para asegurar la nave, entrada
y salida de las esclusas, el paso entire
los niveles, el Ilenado y vaciado de
las camaras y el tiempo de retorno
de las locomotoras.
Se consigui6 el tiempo promedio
para cada element en siete catego-
rias de buques de diferente manga y
tambi6n de cruces de esclusa en tan-
dem. En el caso de naves de 90 pies
de manga o mas, los tiempos fueron
calculados separadamente para cuan-
do cruzan cargados o en lastre. Ge-
neralmente, los tiempos aumentan en
proporci6n al aumento en el tamafio
de las naves, except el tiempo de
manejo del agua, que permanece
constant para naves de cualquier
tamafio en las respectivas camaras.
Los tiempos obtenidos durante las
pruebas han sido sometidos a A. T.
Kearney, firma consultora especiali-
zada en anAlisis de sistemas y res-
ponsable por un informed de tccnicas
de simulaci6n de computador sobre
la capacidad del Canal.

Realiza Magnifica Labor

Bibliotecaria de Paraiso

Una interesante series de charlas
sobre el funcionamiento de la biblio-
teca concluy6 la semana pasada en
la Biblioteca de Paraiso.
Anualmente, a principios del afio
escolar, la Sra. Ana B. de Forero, bi-
bliotecaria de Paraiso, dicta una series
de interesantisimas charlas a los es-
tudiantes que ingresan al s6ptimo
grado de la escuela secundaria del
lugar, para que se familiaricen con las
normas que rigen el funcionamiento
de una biblioteca. El uso del catA-
logo, la explicaci6n de los numeros y
letras colocados en el lomo de los
libros, los pr6stamos de libros, las
devoluciones, la discipline y la hi-
giene son temas que les explica
Las charlas se inician con un reco-
rrido por las diferentes secciones de la
biblioteca, desde la secci6n de nove-
las hasta concluir con la numeraci6n
de los "900", nimnero que correspon-
de a libros de geografia, historic y
viajes. Luego sigue explicando el sig-
nificado de las letras "R" y "B". La
primera significa Referencias, es
decir, que los libros con esa letra en
el lomo no pueden ser sacados de la
biblioteca y son para uso exclusive
de consult dentro de la misma. Son
las enciclopedias, los atlas, los alma-
naques mundiales y similares. La
letra "B" significa Biografias, que
dan todos los datos biograficos sobre
escritores o personajes importantes
en el mundo. Estos si se pueden pres-
tar. En la biblioteca tanbi6n existed
otro material llamado archivo verti-
cal (AV), que se presta y que incluye
recortes de revistas, mapas, panfletos,
retratos, hojas sueltas.
La Sra. de Forero hace 6nfasis en
la importancia del uso del catAlogo,
list que contiene en fichas los titulos,
autores y materials de todos los libros

que se encuentran en la biblioteca.
Al usar el fichero, el estudiante puede
encontrar fAcilmente un libro y no
pierde tiempo. Los prestamos son
con plazos de 7 dias y 3 semanas,
segdn lo indique la fecha marcada en
el bolsillo del libro. Esta fecha sirve
para recorder al lector cuAndo debe
devolver cualquier material prestado,
y que despums de esta fecha debe
pagar 4 centavos diaries por un mate-
rial de 7 dias y 2 centavos diaries de
multa por uno de 3 semanas de plazo
hasta su devoluci6n.
Finalmente la Sra. de Forero hace
algunas consideraciones sobre la dis-
ciplina que debe reinar en la biblio-
teca, sobre la higiene que tambi6n
debe observarse en la biblioteca y
aprovecha la oportunidad para ex-
hortar a los estudiantes que no estAn
inscritos a que lleven un formulario
a sus padres, para proceder a su
Las charlas de la Sra. de Forero
han contribuido a fomentar el interns
de los alumnos en la biblioteca. El
aumento en el n6mero de lectores,
que conocen perfectamente la opera-
ci6n de la biblioteca, es clara indica-
ci6n de la efectividad del esfuerzo
de la Sra. de Forero.

El argument de la obra, de par

mayor vida al proyectarse en sombra

Compilase Historia de la

Administraci6n Johnson

Una narraci6n de los principles
events y problems, decisions y
logros habidos en las agencies del
Canal de Panama, durante los afios
de la administraci6n del Presidente
Lyndon B. Johnson, estA siendo pre-
parada en la Zona del Canal, aten-
diendo solicitud del Presidente. Na-
rraciones similares estAn siendo prc-
paradas por todos los demis depar-
tamentos y agencies del Gobierno de
Estados Unidos. Todo el material
estara bien documentado.
La decision de solicitar tales na-
rraciones fue tomada por el Presi-
dente luego de que numerosos his-
toriadores y estudiosos de la political
dijeron a la Casa Blanca que, al exa-
minar los archives y al tratar de eva-
luar los logros de otras administra-
ciones, se encontraban perdidos en
una masa de papeles y tenian dificul-
tades en correlacionar y poner en
forma consecutive algunos cambios
en las normas. El nuevo Proyecto de
Historias Departamentales constitui-
ra un esfuerzo mayor a fin de que
los historiadores del future puedan
examiner y evaluar la historic de cada
departamento y agencia durante los
afios de Johnson.
El Gobernador W. P. Leber ha
asignado al Secretario Ejecutivo Paul
M. Runnestrand a supervisor este
proyecto en las agencies del Canal.
