performance ratings, recommends
incentive awards, administers disci-

reasons, the supervisor should be
given the opportunity to assist an
employee in solving his problem.
Should the problem call for an
answer beyond his knowledge, the
supervisor will be happy to obtain
the information an employee needs
or arrange for a visit to the Per-
sonnel Office.
Take advantage of the super-

most cases, employees will find that
the supervisor can be helpful. Give
him a chance to help you.
Employees who seek direct assist-

before seeing their supervisor about
their problems may be asked, "Have
you discussed this question with
your immediate supervisor, if not,
may I call him?"

from a family that was returning to
the States shortly and they told us
about a game played in the British
Isles that consists of digging holes.
Teams are chosen and each team is
given a certain length of time to
dig a hole 6' x 6' x 4'. The teams
are judged on time, how neatly they
pile the overburden removed from
the hole, the square of the excava-
tion, perpendicular altitude of the
sides, and level of the bottom. The
Irish are the perennial winners,
followed closely by the Welsh. We
asked one Irish team captain for
some background information on
the sport. Mainly, we asked him
why they dig these holes. His reply:

The show is sponsored by the Na-
tional League of American Pen
Women, Canal Zone, and Panama
Mrs. Bech, who teaches art at

develop creativity and good design.
Mrs. Bech began her art training
at the Universidad Javeriana in
Bogota, Colombia. She has attended
Canal Zone College and the Chiouni-
nard Art Institute in Los Angeles,
and specialized in modern painting
with Raymond Barrio in Mountain
View, Calif.

J. Deming Granted Ph. D.

John L. Deming, son of Judge
John E. Deming of Balboa Magis-
trates' Court and Mrs. Deming,
was among the 35 University of
Nebraska graduate students to re-
ceive doctor of philosophy degrees
at the Centennial Commencement
held in Pershing Auditorium in
Lincoln, Nebr.
Deming graduated from Balboa
High School in 1961 and received
a bachelor of science and masters
degree in chemical engineering
from the University of Nebraska.
He is presently working for Dupont
in Delaware.
He and his wife, the former Karen
Schmidt of the Canal Zone, have
a son, John, Jr.

It takes only 2 to 3 minutes for
a motorist to cross the Thatcher
Ferry Bridge and a pedestrian can
walk it in 15 to 20 minutes. But
it takes a Maintenance Division
painter 5 years to cross the span.
Every dry season 40 to 50 tem-
porary employees chip and paint
part of the superstructure and ap-
proaches of the bridge which meas-
uires 5,425 feet from abutment to
abutment. When working on the
roadway section of the center span,
the workman are 200 feet above
the ship channel and those who
work on the center of the arch are
365 feet up. Since the opening of
the bridge in 1962, no serious in-
jury has marred this maintenance
program, which costs some $200,000

The Canal organization has on
order two new 45-foot steel hulled
pilot boats which are being built
at Oyster Bay, N.Y. The vessels, to
be named Albacore and Garfish, are
expected to be delivered in Octo-
her or November. The Albacore
will serve in Balboa and the Garifish
in Cristobal. The new boats, which
are of the latest design, will repre-
sent a continuation of a program to
replace the old wooden hulled
boats, some of which have been in
service for more than 20 years.
The steel hulled vessels require far
less maintenance than those with
wooden hulls.

The Cristobal Harbor anchorage
was recently divided into six sepa-
rate areas, each for ships of specific
sizes and drafts. The purpose of
the division, made necessary be-
cause of the general increase in
Canal traffic, is to utilize the an-
chorage as efficiently as possible
while insuring that all vessels have
adequate safe anchorage and ma-
neuvering area. A memo explaining
the areas and including a map of
the anchorage with the areas de-
signated was sent out by Capt.
E. B. Rainier, Chief, Navigation
Division, to all steamship agents
and operators and shipmasters.

Success of Apollo
(Continued from p. 1)
television sets were brought in for
everyone to see the moon walk.
When it was over the audience and
cast joined in singing the national
anthem played by the orchestra.
Those present said it was a moving

36-page edition marking the 55th
anniversary of the opening of the
Canal and the 450th anniversary
of the founding of Panama City.
Much of the issue is devoted to
what the Canal means to various
parts of the world in terms of in-
dustry and commerce. This issue
also will include a fascinating pro-
file of some of the men who con-
tributed greatly to the completion
of the waterway.

If you think the water bottle
takes up too much space in the re-
frigerator and it's a chore to keep
it filled up, don't plan on adopting
one of the Canal's bottles. The
Canal's bottles, better known as
water tanks, such as the two at the
Mount Hope filtration plant, each
hold a million gallons. The Main-
tenance Division uses approxima-
tely 150 gallons of paint on the
interior and exterior of each 55-foot
deep tank every year.
o o
The Maintenance Division has
installed gray, white, and green
vinyl plastic siding on six wooden
cottages, three in Margarita and
three in Los Rios. This is more ex-
pensive than a paint job but no
painting is required and the siding
has done much to improve the ap-
pearance of the buildings. It is
hoped that this siding will provide
a practical solution for exterior
painting problems of the tropics
and will improve the insulating
properties of the exterior walls thus
easing the air-conditioning load.

Silver City. A Beckett le encanta la

interesantes de los peri6dicos de

Responsabilidad Comun

Cuando se habla de producci6n el personal de una empresa inmediata-
mente entiende que esta es parte de su responsabilidad. Generalmente no
hay que hacer referencias especificas para que esta responsabilidad sea
asumida y todos la tomen como propia. Los principios que operan para
que todos piensen de esta manera no han sido claramente definidos, pero
por pocos conocimientos que una persona tenga, en forma, podriamos
decir, casi "instintiva", sabe que sin producci6n ninguna empresa puede
sobrevivir y que en consecuencia su salario y el bienestar de su familiar
dependent de aqu6lla.
Lamentableinente no siempre la responsabilidad se generaliza en la
misma magnitude cuando se entra en el terreno de la Prevenci6n de Acci-
dentes. Aqui, en muchos casos, la responsabilidad se pasa al "vecino" o
superior inmediato, sin llegar a darse cuenta los que asi proceden del error
tan lamentable que estAn cometiendo.
La relaci6n que existe entire producci6n y seguridad es tan estrecha que
no pueden desvincularse en ningsn moment. Es probable que en algunas
circunstancias haya una aparente separaci6n entire ambas, pero esto serA
inmicamente ilusorio; tarde o temprano si los principios de seguridad no se
observan los accidents se harAn presents y su incidencia sobre la
producci6n no dejarA de hacerse sentir.
UC6mo afectarA esto a los trabajadores y a la empresa en general? Los
resultados no pueden predecirse ya que dependerAn de diversas circuns-
tancias tales como: importancia de la empresa, numero de trabajadores,
cantidad de producci6n, recursos auxiliares que posee la empresa, etc.,
pero cualesquiera que Astas sean, el efecto no tardarA en hacerse sentir,
aimn cuando varied el porcentaje del mismo.
Es responsabilidad primordial de la gerencia tener establecidos prin-
cipios tales que no dejen lugar a dudas sobre la importancia que la segu-
ridad tiene en el desarrollo general de la misma, pero estos principios no
deberAn solamente esbozarse y constituir una teoria, sino que deberan
ser una realidad de cada dia.
Cuando los trabajadores tengan la convicci6n de que la gerencia pone
en prActica lo que predica, aun los mas reacios no podrAn sustraerse al
influjo de esta political y gradualmente irAn haci6ndose mAs responsables,
no s6lo por su propia seguridad, sino tambi6n por la de los que los rodean.
Y esto se extenderA mis allA de las paredes del lugar del trabajo, ya que
estA comprobado que cuando la idea de seguridad empieza a arraigarse
en una persona, lo acompafia durante las 24 horas del dia.

Notas Breves

del Canal

Un automovilista s6lo tarda 3 mi-
nutos en cruzar el Puente Thatcher
Ferry, mientras que un peat6n
puede cruzarlo en 15 6 20 minutes.
Pero a un pintor de la Division de
Mantenimiento le toma unos 5 aiios
para ir de un lado a otro de la es-
tructura. En la estaci6n seca, unos
40 6 50 empleados temporales des-
cascarillan y pintan parte de la su-
perestructura y de los access del
puente que mide 5.425 pies de es-
tribo a estribo. Cuando trabajan en
la secci6n de la carretera en el tra-
mo central, los trabajadores estAn
a 200 pies sobre el cauce del Canal,
mientras que los que trabajan en el
centro del arco se encuentran a 365
pies de altura. Desde que se inau-
gur6 el puente en 1962, ninguna
lesi6n seria ha obstaculizado el pro-
grama de mantenimiento, que cues-
ta unos $200.000 al ailo.

berain ser entregadas en octubre y
noviembre. La Albacore servira en
Balboa, mientras que la Garfish en
Crist6bal. Las nuevas lanchas, que
son de disenfio muy avanzado, re-
presentan la continuaci6n del pro-
grama destinado a reemplazar las
viejas embarcaciones de casco de

El anclaje de la Bahia de Cris-
tobal fue recientemente dividido en
seis areas separadas, cada una para
naves de tamailos y calados especi-
ficos. El prop6sito de la division,
hecho necesario debido al aumento
general en el trAfico por el Canal,
es utilizar el anclaje lo mans eficien-
temente possible, a la vez que ga-
r.ntizar a las naves anclaje seguro
y suficiente Area de maniobras. Un
memorAndum explicativo de las
Areas con un mapa del anclaje
done aparecen las diferentes Areas
fue enviado por el CapitAn E. B.
Rainier, Jefe de la Divisi6n de Na-
vegaci6n, a todos los agents y ope-
radores de naves, lo mismo que a
los capitanes de barcos.

Si usted cree que las botellas de
agua ocupan demasiado espacio en
la refrigeradora y es un problema
mantenerlas llenas, no haga planes
para adoptar una de las que usa el
Canal de PanamA. Las botellas de
agua del Canal de PanamA, mejor
conocidas como tanques de agua,
comno los dos que existen en la plan-
ta purificadora de agua de Mount
Hope, contiene cada uno 1 mill6n
de galones.

La Division de Mantenimiento ha
forrado con vinil plAstico, gris,
blanco y verde, el exterior de seis
casas de madera, tres en Margarita
y tres en Los Rios. Este material es
mas caro que la pintura, pero no
sera necesario pintar mAs las casas
y su apariencia ha mejorado much.
Se espera que este nuevo material
proporcione una soluci6n prActica a
los problems que provienen de la
pintura exterior en el tr6pico, ade-
mAs de que mejorarA las propieda-
des aislantes de las paredes exterio-
res, aliviando la carga de los acon-
dicionadores de aire.
