Vol. VIII, No. 2 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, June 27, 1969


Independence Day


Plans Progressing


Plans are being completed for
the 1969 Independence Day cele-
brations on.both sides of the Isth-
mus. The committees in charge of
preparations have been at work
coordinating activities to be pre-
sented to the public with the assist-
ance of the local military com-
ponents and veterans organizations.
On the Atlantic side, scheduled
events will be held at Coco Solo
in the area of the Cristobal Junior-
Senior High School. Events will in-
clude a parade, games, ceremonies
at which the main speaker will be
Acting Canal Zone Gov. R. S. Hart-
line, and special demonstrations in-
cluding skydiving and underwater



Mosquitoes


Are Fewer


This Year
The influx of Aedes taeniorhyn-
chus mosquitoes-the black and
white bandy legged pest mosquitoes
that can fly as far as 25 miles from
the brackish waters where they
breed-will not be as troublesome
this year as in the past, according
to the Sanitation Division.
The invasion of the mosquitoes
occurs soon after the first heavy
seasonal rains and is especially
serious on the Atlantic side. The
Canal Zone Health Bureau experts
point out that they are not a disease
vector but a local pest, especially
when they come in large numbers.
Northern Sanitation Area office'
personnel, using light traps 4 night;
per week, reported a record catch
in April 1963 of more than 23,000
mosquitoes in 1 week. Normally,
the average 4 nights a week catch is
about 100 mosquitoes but this year
the catch has been far below normal.
In the past 3 years, the invasion w
hardly noticeable on mosquito
indices charted by the Division of
Sanitation. The peak of the invasion
occurred in June of last year.
Typical breeding places for th;s
pest mosquito, a cousin of the N(
Jersey saltmarsh mosquito, are t!
low lying coastal areas, where
natural drainage outlets have been
blocked during the dry season by
shifting beach sands. At the begin
ning of the rainy season, the areas
fill with water made brackish by
the high tides. Here millions of mos-
quito eggs, laid in the low areas
several months previously, are
hatched.
Control by ground or air of these
breeding areas, which are prac-
tically inaccessible, is considered
impractical because of excessive
costs. From these breeding places,
the pests find their way to the
homesites.
Insecticidal fogging by the Divi-
sion of Sanitation, which th:s year
was begun in all townsites in May,
reduces the mosquito population by
causing the fog to drift in, under,
and around the houses.
Normally, the invasion dissipates
in about 2 or 3 weeks but may con-
tinue for as long as 3 months, gen
erally in April, May, and June. The
annual invasion of these marsh mos-
quitoes usually coincides with the
renewed activity of the malaria
carrying Anopheles mosquito.

diving with SCUBA gear. Chair-
man for the committee on the Gold
Coast is John W. Urey, president of
the Margarita Recreation Associa-
tion. A fireworks display scheduled
for 7:30 p.m. at Coco Solo will be
cosponsored by the association and
Atlantic side veterans groups.
At Balboa, Chairman John R.
Haner has announced plans for a
parade, a free variety show, free
movies for the children and other
events. The Veterans of Foreign
Wars Post No. 3822 is the sponsor
for this year's Fourth of July pro-
gram at Balboa. The fireworks dis-
play will be fired starting at 8 p.m.
from atop Sosa Hill. If the fireworks
are canceled because of rain, they
will be held the next clear night
following the Fourth of July.
There will be partial transits of
Gaillard Cut aboard the launch
Las Cruces all day. Tickets will be
required for each passenger on all
trips, and may be obtained on a
first-come, first-served basis at the
Information Desk of the Adminis-
tration Building at Balboa Heights
starting July 1. Tickets are free and
each trip will be limited to 150
passengers.

Radar is great for ocean lin-
ers, but for the small boat
skipper, nothing beats a pair
of alert eyes. Boatmen should
keep constantly on the look-
out for other boats, sand
bars, floating debris and other
potential hazards. Defensive
piloting is-the best course to
follow for a day of fun on the
water.

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


Daile D. Keigley, second from left, Supervisory Staff left: Mrs. Arthur J. O'Leary, Keigley, Arthur J. O'Leary,
Accountant (Chief, Reports and Analysis), of the deputy comptroller of the Panama Canal, Mrs. Keigley,
Accounting Division, who is retiring from Canal service Miguel Corc6, Mrs. Robert Lessiack, and Donald
with more than 31 years service, is honored by his Bowen. The Keigleys, who will depart from the Isthmus
coworkers in the Comptroller's Office at a luncheon early in July, will make their retirement home in St.
in the Roosevelt Room at the Tivoli Guest House. From Petersburg, Fla.


Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber
spoke on the Canal's attitude toward
a new system of tonnage measure-
ment at the International Con-
ference on Tonnage Measurement
which was held recently in London.
Governor Leber attended the con-
ference as an observer for the Canal
organization.
He pointed out that the Canal
would try to use any universal ton-
nage measurement system agreed
on and accepted, in the desire to
serve the international community
as it has done for the past 55 years,
but much would depend on the par-
ticular system chosen by the Con-
ference.
In response to a question, the
Governor said that toll rates might
have to be adjusted to ensure an
adequate revenue and to comply
with pertinent codes, laws, and
treaties. It would not be a simple
matter to work out a means of
arriving at the same toll for similar
types of ships and it might prove
necessary to introduce differential
tolls according to the types of ships
and the commodities carried.
The present system is a simple
one with the rates charged being
72 cents in ballast and 90 cents if
laden (without regard to amount or
type of cargo). The Governor ex-
pressed doubt that the Canal orga-

ARMY ASSOCIATION
TO MEET TOMORROW
The Isthmian chapter of the
Association of the U.S. Army is to
have its annual meeting tomorrow
night beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the
Fort Amador Officers' Open Mess.
Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m.
The business meeting will be
devoted to the annual election of
officers and the consideration of a
proposed amendment to the bylaws
which would increase the number
of members on the Board of Gov-
ernors from seven to nine.
Guest speaker for the evening
will be Maj. Hugh M. Fisher, pro-
fessor of Military Science at the
Canal Zone Schools. Music for the
meeting will be provided by the
79th Army Band.
Transportation for Atlantic side
personnel will be provided on the
Panama Railroad train leaving
Mount Hope at 4:54 p.m. and
leaving Balboa Heights for the re-
turn trip at 10:04 p.m. Tickets are
available from Bill Young and Jim
Brigman of the Canal organization
and at Quarry Heights, Fort Ama-
dor, Fort Kobbe, Fort Clayton, and
on the Atlantic side.


nization would favor a complex sys-
tem of computing toll rates since
this would undoubtedly arouse
criticism and complaints of dis-
crimination from Canal users. He
emphasized that the Canal does not
at this time propose any change in
toll rates.
Governor Leber, in giving back-
ground information on the Canal,
said that a detailed study on how
to develop the Canal's optimum
practical capacity is in the final
stages. He mentioned that some
tentative conclusions can already
be drawn, for example, that two
sets of towing locomotives will
eventually be needed in each lane
at Gatun and Miraflores Locks as
well as a sufficient and dependable
water supply for anticipated higher
volumes of traffic.
He told the delegates that these
and other improvements will per-
mit the passage of an estimated
24,000 to 25,000 ships a year com-
pared to a little less than 15,000
during fiscal year 1968.


POST OFFICE BULK
RATES TO INCREASE
Third-class bulk postage rates
will be increased at Canal Zone post
offices beginning July 1, according
to David C. Rose, Director of Posts.
The minimum per piece postage
rate for mailing of third-class bulk
mail by authorized nonprofit orga-
nizations, is increased from 1.4 to
1.6 cents per piece and for other
mailers the increase is from 3.6 to
3.8 cents per piece.

STORES TO BE CLOSED
INDEPENDENCE DAY
All Canal Zone stores will be
closed Friday, July 4, in observance
of Independence Day. However,
the service centers at Diablo
Heights, Margarita, and Gatun will
be open for their usual hours during
the holiday.

Paraiso, Pedro Miguel
Quarters Maintenance
Effective Tuesday, July 1, all
maintenance calls for repairs to
quarters in Paraiso and Pedro Mi-
guel will be received by the Hous-
ing Field Office, telephone 4-194,
during regular business hours.
There has been no change in the
after hour emergency numbers. It
is suggested that this be clipped out
and placed in resident telephone
directories.

News Briefs


Modernization and air condi-
tioning of the Balboa Retail Store,
which is about 50 percent com-
pleted, is already contributing to
the comfort of both employees and
customers and is keeping mer-
chandise fresher. New fluorescent
lighting and re-arrangement of mer-
chandise on the second floor
enhance the appearance of the store
and make it easier for shoppers to
find what they are looking for. The
front porch of the store is now in
the process of being enclosed and
will provide additional space for
merchandise.

The Canal organization's annual
apprentice graduation ceremony
will be held July 3 in the Balboa
Training Center where 26 Canal
employees and 11 Army employees
will receive their certificates. Acting
Gov. R. S. Hartline will deliver the
main address. The ceremony will
mark the successful completion of
4 years of intensive training, elevat-
ing the graduates to full journey-
man status in their respective skilled
crafts.

Two new tennis courts are under
construction, one in Balboa and the
other in Gatun. The work is pro-
gressing steadily and the Gatun
court, at Schoolhouse Road near
the fire station, is expected to be
completed by the end of July. The


ENGINEERING DIV.

ASKS RETURN OF

All TRACINGS
Paper or linen tracings that may
inadvertently get rolled up with
prints and forwarded from the
Engineering Division at Balboa
Heights to outside offices should be
returned promptly to the Engineer-
ing Division Vault Clerk, Room
343, Balboa Heights for storage in
the vault.
The Engineering Division has
emphasized that these are original
tracings and the only ones that can
be used to make prints. If they
should be misplaced or lost, new
tracings must be made, which is
time consuming and costly.
If the original tracings are found
with a roll of prints, a call should
be made to the Vault Clerk 2-1812
and the tracings should be returned
to the Engineering Division as soon
as possible.


Local Radio Hams


To Hold Field Day


Local amateur radio operators
will participate in what has been
called "a picnic 5,000 miles wide"
when they compete this weekend
in Field Day, the closing exercise
of Amateur Radio Week.
Field Day combines the fun of a
camp out and the excitement of a
contest with serious preparation for
emergencies. During a 27-hour
period from 2 p.m. Saturday to 5
p.m. Sunday, the hams will set up
and operate their radio equipment
from parks and beaches, hilltops
and forests without using commer-
cial electric power. They will follow
the same procedures that they do
when a flood, tornado, hurricane,
or other disaster cuts the lines.
Richard Wilt, president of the
Crossroads Amateur Radio Club,
Cristobal, has announced that
KZ5PA-KZ5 will set up two com-
plete stations at the old retail store
in Margarita at 2 p.m. and operate


them continuously until 5 p.m.
Sunday. All equipment, including
lighting, will be run with power
from gasoline-driven electric gen-
erators just as it would be should
local power fail in an actual emer-
gency.
Other local radio clubs and in-
dividuals also will participate,
competing against units of the
same size for the highest number of
radio contacts with other Field Day
stations. The test has been con-
ducted annually since 1933 (except
during World War II) by the Amer-
ican Relay League, the amateur's
society for the United States and
Canada.
Participating in the Field Day
will be radio operators from Nova
Scotia to Hawaii, the Yukon to
Puerto Rico, who as a result of
exercises such as this, will be able
to set up their gear quickly and effi-
ciently wherever necessary.


Balboa court, located on Roosevelt
Avenue in front of Balboa High
School, is scheduled to be finished
about the end of October.

Alterations and additions to the
bleachers at the Balboa Stadium
have been completed. Improve-
ments consist in extending the seat-
ing capacity of the existing stands
and the construction of one entire
new stand. The stadium entrances
also have been improved and a few
additional parking spaces provided
adjacent to the stadium.

Underway in both Atlantic and
Pacific side communities is a pro-
gram to improve lighting along
streets and in parking areas. The
present contract provides for lights
along Bolivar Highway between
Mount Hope Railroad Station and
the Margarita crossing and at
various intersections in Margarita.
On the Pacific side, street lights are
being installed along D'ablo Road
from the roller rink to the Walker
Avenue crossing and at the inter-
section of Gaillard Highway and
Paraiso Road. Light poles have been
placed in most of these areas and
will be connected as soon as addi-
tional materials are received by
the contractor.

Numerous miscellaneous road
and highway improvements are
being accomplished by contract in
various sections of the Canal Zone.
In the Atlantic area, a passing lane
is being provided in the Bolivar
Highway Gate 3 entrance to Fort
Davis. On the Pacific side, a bus
stop and passing lane is being pro-
vided at the Gaillard Highway-
Spillway Road intersection in Mira-
flores. Passing lanes will be con-
structed at the Gaillard Highway
entrance to Albrook AFB and at
the Corozo Street-Roosevelt Ave-
nue intersection at Balboa Heights.
In addition, Palo Seco Road in the
vicinity of the Balboa Gun Club
will be widened. The work at Mira-
flores is nearly completed while the
lane at Albrook started last week.
The remainder of the work will be
completed next year.
S a 0 o
The Marine Bureau has launched
a new fog forecasting system which
will permit the dispatching of ships
according to forecast conditions.
Statistical data based on the corre-
lation of climatological information,
such as dew point depression, wind
speed aand direction, air and water
temperature, with the formation
and dissipation of fog will serve to
counteract the problem of fogbound
ships in Gaillard Cut. From time
to time, pilots have been faced with
the problem of fogbound vessels in
the Cut where visibility is usually
restricted to a few 100 feet. The
pilot must either back out of the
Cut, continue the transit by relying
on his experience and familiarity
with the area, or drop anchor. As
a result of the new fog forecasting
system, pilots will not have to make
the choice.

The 117-year-old Panama Rail-
road, the oldest transcontinental
railroad, will soon be one of the
smoothest riding. This will be the
result of the acquisition of a highly
sophisticated combination tie tam-
per and track liner which is part
of an effort to retie and reballast
the entire main track. The machine
is capable of tamping and lining
some 1,300 feet of track per hour.
Railroad officials believe that in less
than a year, the tamper will have
brought the road bed to its main-
tenance peak.

The student assistants had a trip
through the Gaillard Cut Friday
and they really enjoyed it. Half of
them had to be awakened to get
back on the buses when the launch
docked at Pedro Miguel.
Among the more energetic stu-
dents in the group were Denise
Rahn, Chris and Marti Adams,
Leslie Padgett, and Beth Gaudy.
In fact, Leslie started talking when
she boarded the launch, and kept
right on yakking all through lunch-
2 hours later.

Mosquitoes

(Continued from p. 1)
For this reason Canal Zone health
authorities warn residents of the
area to be on guard against all mos-
quitoes. For mosquito protection, it
is advised to restrict activities and
entertainment to facilities within
screened buildings after sundown.
Aerosols are available at retail stores
for residents who may have mos-
quitoes in houses or in carports.
Protective clothing and effective
repellents are advised for those who
participate in outdoor activities,
especially hunters, fishermen, and
campers, who should use mosquito
netting for overnighting outdoors.

He was a resident in hand sur-
gery at Walter Reed General Hos-
pital from 1965 to 1966 and was
assistant chief of Letterman Gen-

American Academy of Orthopedic

De Seguridad en el Agua


El Gobernador W. P. Leber ha
anunciado que la semana que se
inicia el 29 de junio serA la Semana
de Seguridad en el Agua en la Zona
del Canal, de acuerdo con una pro-
clama expedida por el Presidente
Nixon.
El Gobernador seiial6 que el de-
porte de botes es una actividad
popular entire los residents de la
Zona del Canal y exhort6 a los en-
tusiastas de este deported a preocu-
parse much por la seguridad y la
cortesia.
La Zona del Canal tiene la dis-
tinci6n de tener la unidad mis aus-
tral entire las organizaciones de la
Escuadrilla a Motor de los Estados
Unidos con 6nfasis en la seguridad
en los botes, dijo.
La proclama del Presidente dice
en parte:
"En una epoca de oportunidades
sin precedentes para las actividades


durante las horas libres, mis y mis
estadounidenses estAn descubriendo
los beneficios del deported de los
los botes. El siempre creciente tra-
fico en las vias acuAticas ha hecho
que sea imperative que todos los
amantes del deported de los botes
observen las reglas bAsicas de segu-
ridad en el agua.
"El sentido comuin y la cortesia
son dos fundamentos de la seguri-
dad en el agua. Un bote sobrecar-
gado, el no tender las advertencias
sobre el estado del tiempo o arries-
garse innecesariamente, pueden, y
a menudo causan una tragedia. Si
todos tomamos las debidas precau-
ciones, respetamos la capacidad de
la embarcaci6n, y empleamos el
buen juicio, las p6rdidas trAgicas
pueden evitarse.

Importantes Declaraciones


Del Gobernador en Londres


El Gobernador de la Zona del
Canal, W. P. Leber, disert6 sobre
la actitud del Canal respect a un
nuevo sistema de arqueo en la Con-
ferencia Internacional sobre Arqueo
que tuvo lugar recientemente en
Londres. El Gobernador Leber
asisti6 en calidad de observador,
representando al Canal de Panama.
El Gobernador sefial6 que el
Canal tratara de usar cualquier
sistema universal de arqueo en que
se convenga y que sea aceptado, en
su deseo de servir a la comunidad
international, como lo ha hecho
durante los 6ltimos 55 afios, pero
ello dependera grandemente del
sistema particular que escoja la
Conferencia.
En respuesta a una pregunta, el
Gobernador dijo que las tarifas de
peajes podrian ser ajustadas de tal
manera que garantizaran una renta
adecuada y esten de acuerdo con
los c6digos, leyes y tratados perti-
nentes. El desarrollar los medios
para conseguir el mismo peaje para
tipos similares de naves no es un
asunto sencillo y podria hacerse
necesario establecer peajes diferen-
tes, de acuerdo con el tipo de los
barcos y los products que trans-
portan.
El sistema actual es simple. Los
peajes que se cobran en el Canal
son de 72 centavos la tonelada para


las naves en lastre y de 90 centavos
la tonelada para las que llevan carga
(sin tomar en cuenta la cantidad o
tipo de carga). El Gobernador ex-
pres6 dudas de que la organizaci6n
del Canal est6 a favor de un com-
plejo sistema de peajes ya que ello
indudablemente causaria critics y
quejas por discriminaci6n entire
usuarios del Canal. Hizo 6nfasis en
que el Canal no se propone actual-
mente hacer cambio alguno en los
peajes.
El Gobernador Leber, al infor-
mar sobre las activ:dades del Canal,
declare que se encuentra en su
etapa final un studio sobre c6mo
desarrollar hasta el maximo la ca-
pacidad prActica del Canal. Men-
cion6 que ya se pueden sacar algu-
nas conclusions tentativas, como
por ejemplo que, eventualmente, se
necesitarin dos juegos de locomo-
toras de remolque en cada una de
las vias de las Esclusas de Gat6n y
de Miraflores, lo mismo que se re-
querira un abastecimiento de agua
adecuado y seguro para el mayor
volume de trAfico que se espera.
Dijo a los delegados que estas v
otras mejoras permitiran un trAfico
que se calcula en 24.000 a 25.000
naves al aiio, en comparaci6n con el
de un poco menos de 15.000 naves
que hubo durante el afio fiscal de
1968.

Juan Hoyte, professor de mlsica

Un sujeto conocido por sus sali-
das ocurrentes, Ilevaba un dia a un
grupo de estudiantes de visit por
un museo. Uno de ellos, al ver una
momia, le pregunt6 al tipo la iden-
tidad de la momia. Este, ni corto ni
perezoso le contest: "Debe ser
alguien que fue atropellado por un
autom6vil". Como todas las momias
tienen un letrero que ;ndica el afio
en que la persona falleci6, le pre-
guntaron al individuo: "AY ese ni-
mero, qu6 significa?" Y el indivi-
duo contest: "Debe ser el nfmero
de la placa del carro que lo atro-
pell6".

resoluci6n conjunta aprobada el 4
de junio de 1958, solicit al Presi-

tacionamiento, tanto en el sector
Atlintico como en el Pacifico, se
encuentra en march. Se estAn po-
niendo luces a lo largo de la Carre-
tera Bolivar, entire la Estaci6n de
Ferrocarril de Mount Hope y el
Cruce de Margarita y en varias in-
tersecciones de Margarita. En el
lado Pacifico, las luces se colocan
a lo largo de la Carretera a Diablo,
desde la pista de patinaje hasta el
cruce de la Avenida Walker, y en
la intersecci6n de la Carretera Gail-
lard y la Calle de Paraiso. Los pos-
tes han sido colocados en la mayo-
ria de estas areas y se les colocari
la luz apenas el contratista reciba
materials adicionales.

Numerosas y diferentes mejoras
a las carreteras de varias secciones
de la Zona del Canal estAn siendo
llevadas a cabo. En el area del
Atlantico, se esta construyendo una
via de paso en la Carretera Bolivar
frente a la, Puerta N9 3 de Fuerte
Davis. En el sector Pacifico, se esta
construyendo una parada de buses
y una via de paso en la intersecci6n
de la Carretera Gaillard y la Carre-
tera del Vertedero, en Miraflores.
Vias de paso seran construidas en
la Carretera Gaillard, en la entrada
a la Base de la Fuerza Aerea de
Albrook, y en la intersecci6n de la
Avenida Roosevelt y la Calle Coro-
zo, en Balboa Heights. Ademnis, se

trabajo en la via de paso en Albrook

entrante.

La Direcci6n de Marina ha ini-


ciado un nuevo sistema de pron6s-
ticos de niebla, con el fin de que
se pueda despachar las naves de
acuerdo con las condiciones pronos-
ticadas. Los datos estadisticos, ba-
sados en la correlaci6n de informa-
ci6n climatol6gica, tal como la de-
presi6n del punto de rocio, la velo-
cidad y la direcci6n del viento, la
temperature del agua y del aire,
junto con la formaci6n y disipaci6n
de ]a niebla, servirAn para contra-
rrestar el problema de la niebla que
envuelve a las naves en el Corte
Gaillard. Algunas veces, los prActi-
cos se encuentran con sus naves en-
vueltas en la niebla en el Corte
donde la visibilidad esta restringida
generalmente a unos cuantos cen-
tenares de pies. El practice se ve
obligado a echar para atrAs hasta
salir del Corte, a seguir adelante
conflando en su experiencia y fa-
miliaridad con el area, o a echar el
ancla. Como resultado del nuevo
sistema de pron6stico de nieblas, los
prActicos no tendran que tomar esas
decisions.

El Ferrocarril de PanamA, que
cuenta con 117 afios de existencia,
y que es el transcontinental mas
antiguo, pronto serA uno de los mAs
saves en el andar. Ello serA resul-
tado de la adquisici6n de una mA-
quina, combinaci6n sumamente
complicada de apisonadora y recu-
bridora de traviesas, que constituirA
s6o1 parte de un esfuerzo para re-
novar las traviesas y el balasto a lo
largo de toda la via principal. Esta
miquina puede apisonar y recubrir
unos 1.300 pies de via por hora. Los
funcionarios del Ferrocartil de Pa-
nama calculan que en menos de un
afio habran puesto la via del ferro-
carril en condiciones 6ptimas.
