Applicants who have a good
command of the English language
should file applications under An-
nouncement No. CEO-382 in the
event they wish to be tested in
English. The examination material
in both the English and Spanish
versions is identical, except for lan-
guage. Therefore, applicants may
elect to be tested in either the Eng-
lish or Spanish examination. They
may not participate in both exam-

Draft Allowance

Raised to 39'6

An increase in the level of Gatun
Lake due to favorable runoff and
heavy rains has permitted the addi-
tion of 6 inches to the draft allow-
ance of vessels using the Panama
The maximum draft was raised
from 39 feet to 39 feet 6 inches
effective November 17, according
to Capt. R. 0. Mink, chief of the
Navigation Division.
The last increase of the draft
allowance for vessels transiting the
Canal was September 17 when the
permissible draft was raised from
38 feet 6 inches to 39 feet.
This is the fourth draft increase
since the rainy season began last
May when the draft had been de-
creased to 37 feet 6 inches during
the end of the dry season.
It was raised to 38 feet May 21
and 38 feet 6 inches May 28.



A 5-day all expense paid trip to

Cut Widening Work

Enters Homestretch

The last blast on the multi-
million dollar Panama Canal Cut
widening project was fired at 11:37
a.m., Thursday, November 20,
marking the end of the Oman Con-
struction Co. contract for widening
the 3-mile Bas Obispo-Las Cascadas
Reaches from 300 to 500 feet.
ThIe blast set off 40,000 pounds of
ammonium nitrate slurry in the gen-
eral vicinity of the La Pita Signal
Station. The material broken loose
will be cleared up by the Panama
Canal Dredging Division which is
using both the dredges Cascadas
and Paraiso to remove all material
below the water line.
The entire project is scheduled
for completion in July 1970, or
approximately IVz1 years ahead of
the original contract schedule. The
speed-up in the work was started in
February 1968, following a modifi-
cation of the contract with the
Oman Construction Co.
The modification provided for
the use of an ammonium nitrate
blasting slurry which was more effi-
ciently and less expensively used to
achieve a type of breakage which
could be handled by the Panama
Canal dredges.
While Oman was the prime con-
tractor for' the project, three sub
contractors were employed to ac-
complish the work.
Removal of all Zone I material
located 95 feet above water level
was assigned by Oman to Foster
Construction Co. Drilling of all
Zone II material located below 95
feet to the water line was assigned
to the West Texas Drilling Co. Sup-
plier of explosives for the entire
project was Hercules Trading Co.,
a subsidiary of Hercules Inc.
The Foster firm used a diesel
electric power shovel with a 6-cubic
-ard blicket. one track mounted,
and one tire mounted bucket loaders

dredge "Paraiso" is shown in the background ready to
move in and clear up the blasted material.



Gov. W. P. Leber has called
attention to President Richard M.
Nixon's statement of the Safety
Police for the Federal Government
which is dedicated to the elimina-
tion of human suffering and eco-
nomic waste caused by accidents.
The President's statement shows
that progress has been made and
notes that when Mission Safety-70
was begun in 1965, the disabling
injury frequency rate was 7.7. The
rate for 1968 was 6.9, a 3 percent
improvement over the previous year
and an overall 10.4 percent im-
The Panama Canal's disabling
frequency rate for 1968 was 4.9
percent or 29 percent better than
the Federal Government's rate.
Though progress has been made
and the safety program operating
in all units of the Canal organiza-
tion has proved its worth in avoid-

ployees on temporary Isthmian

regular work station) has been in-
creased from $6 to $8 per day.
Per diemn or cash allowance for
an employee onan assignment of
less than 24 consecutive hours,
which was previously $4, has been

tinental U.S. from $16 to $25 for
employees on home leave; newly
recruited employees; for official

wagons. The material was then
carried to spoil areas and dumped.
Zone II drilling was done by a
barge-mounted drill to bore under-
water holes and two truck mounted

By Emily J. Price

One of history's great love sto-
ries is marvelously retold by Jack
Russell in Nelson and the Hamil-
tons. At the height of the affair,
Emma was 40 and fat, Nelson tiny
and crippled, Sir Williaim increas-
ingly beset by the infirmities ofr
age. The book relates all the gos-
sip and scandal, but the author is
sympathetic toward the people in-
volved and the genuine tragedy at
the end is treated with compassion.
Theodor Rosebury, the author of
Life On Man, is a prominent bacte-
riologist and he does not go along
with the modern miania for clean-
liness. Pointing out that many of
our ingrained beliefs are pretty
foolish, he has written an out-
rageous and very funny book. It
won't make dinner-table conversa-
tion, but it may revise some think-
Sheila Burnford's first book "The
Incredible Journev" was a delight-
ful book about domestic animals
traveling through a Canadian wil-
clerness. Now her third book With-
out Reserve is about her own
travels to the lake-strewn forests
west of Hudson Bay. Here she has
come to know trappers, nomadic
wild rice harvesters, and Indians of
the Cree and Ojiba tri bes who
live on "reserves" in this remote
area. Along with Susan Ross, the
illustrator of this book, Mrs. Burn-
ford has journeyed up rivers and
across prairies with the simple
purpose of observing and learning.
She conveys the results to the
reader with skill and charm.

depend on his diligence.

Stella Tremblay, in the lead female role of Catherine, and Lonny Johnston,
as Morris Townson, rehearse "The Heiress," to be presented Decem,

School's first return to heavy drama since its production of "Antigone" in
1966. "The Heiress" is a tragic love story with an unusual ending. Curtain

"The Heiress" To Open

Dec. 4 for 3-day Run

The Balboa High School Drama
Club will present its first heavy
drama since 1966 in a 3-day run of
"The Heiress" December 4-6 in the
school auditorium. Curtain time is
8 p.m.
"The Heiress" is a tragic love
story with an unusual ending and
requires skilled acting and an expert
sense of timing, according to Drama
Club directors.
Plays such as "The Heiress" do
not depend on comedy or mystery
or fast action, but on a tense build-
up of the interplay between per-
sonalities. What happens depends
not on what the characters do as
much as on what they are'.
Stella Tremblay plays the lead
role of Catherine. She has been
acting in starring roles all through
junior high and high school and on
the Theatre Guild stage. Miss Trem-
blay acted in the "Miracle Worker,"
"Dino," and "Midsummer Night's
The two male leads are played
by Richard Hollis as Dr. Slooper,
and Lonny Johnston as Morris. Both

slash, puncture, burn, choke, maim,
and even kill a child. A cuddly
teddy hear may have eye prongs
that when removed convert into
miniature bayonets; cap pistols have
exploded, blinding kindergarten
cowboys, and small darts have been
removed from youngsters' lungs
when inhaled rather than blown
through a blow-gun device.
Parents are urged to select toys
with extreme care and keep in mind
the age and capabilities of the child.
They should check the construction
of the item, and in mechanical toys,.
the cog wheels, gears, and chains
that can pinch a child's fingers un-
less they are well covered. Sharp
metal corners and edges also may
cause injuries.

The Supply Division anticipates
that in the near future, customers
will be able to purchase the current
issues of their favorite magazines.
There has been some difficulty in
obtaining current issues of popular
magazines and the Division has been
working closely with local distri-
butors to correct this problem.

Today, folks, IT'S No SECRET
takes you into the dark damp of the
Darien jungles, to the sun and fun
of San Blas, and then we return
to the Zone for a few more chuckles.
We offer the snake haters a few tips
and the compulsive gourmet cook
some inside information.
Down in the Darien, as the song
goes, things go on. Creepy crawlies
and snakes abound, but according
to one herpetologist, a man's chance
of being bitten by a poisonous viper
in Panama is no greater than that
of being struck by lightning. We
hesitate telling that to all the people
who have been bitten by poisonous
snakes and haven't been struck by
lightning. We were struck by light-
ning just a minute ago and there-
fore, according to logic, will, in fact,
get bitten by a viper tomorrow or
the next day. This column may not
appear next week.
Anyway, one good way of avoid-
ing snakes while out in the bushes
is to make a lot of noise to give the
snakes a chance to get our of your
For example, as you approach
snake country yell out "hey snakes,
look out. Here come 'de judge."
This is an age-old method that
never fails. And remember, never
pick up a snake to kill a stick.
With that bit of snake lore out
of the way, let us now move to
At first we suspected that ocean-
ographers dealing with the study
of how hard a shark bites would be
the worse for wear. But like most
modern scientists, they can devise
means to get out of the "real" exper-
iments. We remember when Ronald
Coleman, as Walter Reed, allowed
one of his volunteer soldiers to be
bitten by a yellow fever mosquito.
Although the man died, it was a
real experiment. But back to sharks.
Researchers at the Lerner Marine
Laboratory in Bimini tried 175 tests
using a soft metal tube buried in
some shark bait. The highest force
applied by a single tooth of an
8'2-foot dusky shark was 132

pounds. Considering the very small
size of the contact surface of the
tooth, this works out to more than
20 metric tons per square inch.
0 a .
Back down in the Darien, the
reptile most frequently found on
the table, and on the floor, is the
iguana, not the snake. Snakes are
hunted for their skins, not for their
meat, although according to our
snake doctor friend, the meat is
quite tasty.
Dried iguana eggs can be a treat
at a picnic, as can a martini, but not
for the same reason. Among certain
Cuna Indians, women and young
boys are not permitted to eat the
eggs, even if they are at a picnic.
They are saved for more serious
stuff, such as the vitality of the men.

For the gourmet cook or the
hungry hunter, here's a recipe for
iguana stew. We hope it makes you
sick because it's illegal to kill igua-
nas in Panama. But anyway, first
get an iguana (of course) dismember
it (ugh!)-the way to do this is so
disgusting we can't go into it-and
stick it in a pot'with heated coconut
oil. Brown lightly, dropping in hot
pepper and garlic. In another pot
of brine, boil the eggs for half an
hour in the shell (good grief) with
a chili pepper. Drain and add them,
shells and all, to the meat, along
with the diced iguana liver, its heart
and the yellow eggs. Cook until the
broth has all but disappeared. Pour
the remaining broth on rice and
beans, topping with the stewed
meat. Throw out and eat the pot.

The gaiety of pre-Castro Cuba
came to the surface last week when
crew members of the Cuban mer-
chant ship Guisa did an impromptu
dance on deck to the tune of "El
Manicero" (The Peanut Vendor).
The music was wafting across Gail-
lard Cut from the launch Las Cruces
where Lucho Azeirraga was play-
ing for a group of visiting digni-
taries on an official tour.

Native Handiwork

The Fast Pitch teams of the Pa-
cific Softball League, Atlas, man-
aged by Charles Giavelli and Roy
Hammac, managed by Lou Hooper,
will hold a joint tryout practice
session Wednesday, December 3,
at the League Park in Balboa. All
interested players in addition to
those already notified are urged to
attend. These two teams will play
in a joint six-team military-civilian
league with teams from Albrook

one of the largest contracts in the
long-range plan to widen the
8.3-mile Cut. The program was ac-
tually started in 1954 when a
$3,391,000 contract was awarded
to the Tecon Corp. of Dallas, Tex.,
for the removal of some 2 million
cubic yards from Contractor's Hill.
The entire Cut widening work
has cost the Panama Canal organi-
zation approximately $50 million
since 1954, and is considered one
of the major improvements to the
waterway. In addition to removing
the navigation hazards in the vital
Gaillard Cut area, the final com-
pletion of the work in July will
permit two-way traffic through the
Cut for nearly all types of ships.

Eugene Askew

To Be Honored

On Retirement

A retirement party for Mr. and
Mrs. Eugene I. Askew will be held
at the Albrook Officers' Club, Satur-
day, December 13, from 6 to 12
p.m. Music will be by Crist6bal
Mufioz and his combo. There will
be an open bar, buffet, dancing, and
Askew, who is an admneasurer
with the Canal organization, first
came to the Isthmus in 1931 while
serving with the U.S. Army. He
was on detached duty with the
Board of Health Laboratory until
1933 when he accepted a position
with the United Fruit Co. in Hon-
Hle returned to the Isthmus in
1934. and worked at the Gorgas
Memorial Laboratory in Panama.
Later in the year, he joined the staff
of Gorgas Hospital as an X-ray
technician. He transferred to the
Quarantine Division in 1948 where
he remained until July 1954, when
he became an admeasurer.
Following retirement, the Askews
will live in St. Petersburg, Fla.,
where they are building a home.
Those wishing to make reservations
for the retirement party should call
Bill Violette, Balboa 2637, or Verne
Christoph, Cristobal 1693. Tickets
will be $6.50 each of $13 a couple.

ing injuries to employees and finan-
cial loss to them and to their fam-
ilies, Governor Leber notes that still
more can be done. "I urge you to
lend to the safety program that
additional degree of personal in-
terest, attention, and support vital
to its further improvement," the
Governor said.

"Who's got the charge plate?"

Gatun School

Youngsters Top

Swimming List
A recent survey of the U.S. ele-
mentary schools of the Canal Zone
has revealed that over one-third of
the students of grades 1 to 6 have
earned their "B" badges in swim-
The privileges and advantages of
possession of a Beginners "B"
badge include:
1. Pride and confidence inherent
in the overcoming of the un-
2. Self-esteem acquired through
the knowledge of their profi-
ciency in the water.
3. Self-confidence through sever-
ance of parental apron strings.
4. A sound foundation on which to
build future aquatic skills.
5. Safe carefree participation in
aquatic recreation and fitness
Gatun Elementary School had
the highest percentage of swimmers
with 60 percent of its students
owning "B" badges. A direct corela-
tion to percentage of student swim-
mers and grade was apparent as
the following statistics depict:
1st grade 12%, 2d grade 17%,
3d grade 30%, 4th grade 43%, 5th
grade 52%, and 6th grade 62%.
Elementary school children cur-
rently participating in Beginners
Courses at the seven U.S. pools
total 451.
Beginners courses are offered
periodically throughout the year
with registration for the next ses-
sions slated for early January.
The Panama Canal Schools Divi-
sion sponsors classes at all American
Red Cross levels from Beginners
through Water Safety and Life-
saving Instructors.

Escuela de Baile

Habra en Paraiso

En Enero de 1970
Los residents de las comunida-
des de Paraiso, Pedro Miguel y
Gamboa en la Zona del Canal po-
dran usar pronto los servicios de
una escuela de baile. La escuela
estara situada en el Paraiso Lodge
Hall y se abriri en enero de 1970.
Se han planeado las classes en
form permanent y los estudian-
tes serin ascendidos acad6mica-
mente al pr6ximo nivel alto al final
de cada unidad de adiestramiento.
Las classes consistirnan inicialmente
en ejercicios para fortalecer y poner
flexibles las piernas y los musculos
del pie, y para hacer del cuerpo
delgado y flexible. Al adelantar los
estudiantes aprenderin ballet, jazz,
bailes moderns y originales.
Las cases seran dirigidlas por
Fay Ferguson, bien conocida en la
Zona del Canal y en PanamA tanto
como profesora de baile como di-
rectora y core6grafa de muchos es-
pectAculos. Hermelinda Fuentes, de
Pedro Miguel, es la primer balle-
rina de este grupo professional.
La Sra. Ferguson es miembro de
la Asociaci6n Nacional de Profeso-
res de Baile y de Artistas Aliados de
Los Angeles, California. En su ca-
pacidad ella puede recomendar a
los estudiantes sobresalientes para
que asistan a seminaries y studios
avanzados en los Estados Unidos.
Las classes se dividirnin en tres
grupos de edades: de 6 a 9 afios,
10 a 13 ailos y j6venes desde 14 en
aclelante. Estudiantes de ambos
sexos seran aceptados.
La matricula para todos los gru-
pos tendri lugar en el Lodge Hall
el 4, 11 y 18 de diciembre de 5:30
a 6:30 p.m. Todos los estudiantes
deberin matricularse en esas fe-
chas; no habrA nuevas matriculas
despues de haberse iniciado las
Las classes comenzarin el jueves
8 de enero de 1970 y la hora serA
dada al moment de matricularse.

La mejor epoca de los padres de
familiar es cuando sus hijos son muy
viejos para llorar y muy j6venes
para pedir prestado el auto.

El hombre es el sistema compu-
tador no lineal de mas bajo costo
que es capaz de ser producido en
masa por trabajo no especializado.

Manilal Bhula, Operario de Equi-
po de Oficina en la Contaduria de
la Division de Terminales en el sec-

rueda, habiendo gran expectativa
ante la segura participaci6n de los
favorites Patricio Janson y Claudio
Lopolito en el Aut6dromo PanamA.
En I. anterior clasificaci6n Jan-
son acumul6 buenos puntos en los
events de f6rmulas, pero fall en
el principal, que fue ganado sor-
presivamente por Ralph Harris,
quien labor en la Zona del Canal.
En esa oportunidad los zoneitas
ocuparon los mejores lugares, ya
que Bob Breed-soldado acantona-

La declaraci6n del Presidente de-
muestra que se ha logrado un pro-
greso y destaca que cuando co-
menz6 la Misi6n Seguridad-70 en
1965, el indice de frecuencia de in-
capacidad por lesiones era de 7.7.
El indice para 1968 fue de 6.9, una
mejora del 3 por ciento sobre el
anio anterior y una mejora general
de 10.4 por ciento.
El indice de incapacidad por le-
siones del Canal de Panama para
1968 fue de 4.9 por ciento, o sea
29 por ciento mejor que el indice
del Gobicrno Federal.
Aunque se ha logrado progress
y el program ale seguridad quo
opera en todas las unidades de la
empresa del Canal ha probado ser
eficaz al evitar lesiones a los em-
pleados y p6rdidas econ6micas a
ellos y a sus families, el Goberna-

seco. El material rocoso ha sido roto
de manera que las palas de las dra-
gas Cascadas y Paraiso, de 13 yar-
das cubicas de capacidad, no tengan
problems en excavarlo.
La ampliaci6n de esta secci6n del
Corte Caillard es el ultimo de una
series y uno de los contratos mas
grandes en el program de largo
alcance para ampliar este Corte de
8.3 millas de largo. El program fue
iniciado en 1954, cuando se otorg6
un contrato a la Tecon Corp. de Da-
llas, Texas, para la remoci6n de
unos 2 millones de yards cibicas
de roca del Cerro del Contratista.
La ampliaci6n total del Corte ha
costado a la empresa del Canal de
PanamA aproximadamente $50 mi-
llones, desde 1954, y es considerada
como una de las mAs grandes mc-
joras hechas a la via interoceAnica.
AdemAs de eliminar peligros en la
navegaci6n a trav6s de esa Area
vital del Corte Gaillard, la termi-
naci6n final del trabajo en julio per-
mitirA el trifico de dos vias por el
Corte para casi todos los tipos de
naves que lo atraviesan.

permisible a las embarcaciones que
transitan el Canal tuvo lugar el 17
de septiembre, cuando el calado
maximo permisible fue elevado de
38 pies 6 pulgadas a 39 pies.
Este es el cuarto aumento de ca-
lado que se autoriza desde que co-
menzo6 la estaci6n Iluviosa el pasado
niayo, cuando el calado habia sido
rebajado hasta 37 pies 6 pulgadas a
finales dc la estaci6n seca.
Fue aumnentado a 38 pies el 21
de mayo y a 38 pies 6 pulgadas, el
28 de ese mismo mes.
