THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal museum


Vol. VIII, No. 36 More Than 55 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, February 20, 1970

The old and the new. The tug
"Alhajuela," above, is being put up
for sale after serving the Canal or-
ganization since 1936. The tug
"Trinidad II," right, was delivered
new to the Canal in 1968.

Old Tug

Goes Up

For Sale

Bids for the purchase of the Pan-
ama Canal Dredging Division tug
Alhajuela, which was built by the
former Mechanical Division in Bal-
boa in 1936, are being advertised
and will be opened publicly
March 20 by the Panama Canal
Division of Storehouses in Balboa.
One of the oldest tugs still in the
Panama Canal fleet, the Alhajuela
cost $301,715 to build in 1936. The
Arraijan, also built by the Mechani-
cal Division in 1936, was re-engined
and rebuilt in 1965 and is now in
service in Balboa with the Naviga-
tion Division. The Gatun, built in
Balboa by the Mechanical Division
in 1938, is still in service with the
Dredging Division.
The Alhajuela is of steel riveted
construction and has 750 horse-
power provided by two Price Rath-
bun diesel engines. She is 110 feet
long and has a cruising speed of
10 knots. Shortly after being com-
missioned in 1936, she was put into
service in Cristobal harbor.
The Alhajuela was transferred to
the Dredging Division in 1968 and
has been used to assist in the Cut
widening work. She is the first tug
to be sold by the Panama Canal
since 1965 when the Trinidad I was
put up for bids.
Tugs presently in service include
the Cardenas, San Pablo, and Cule-
bra all built in 1944 and serving
with the Dredging Division in Gam-
boa. Each has 1,000 horsepower
and a bollard pull of 30,000 pounds.
Bollard pull is the measure of pull-
ing force capable of being exerted
by the tug on another vessel.
The Canal's only seagoing salvage
tug is the Taboga, which worked
with Aids to Navigation when she
was placed in service in 1947. She
was converted for towing use in
1959 and is now with the Dredging
Thee new tugs were built for the
Canal in 1961 by the Diamond
Manufacturing Co. of Savannah, Ga.
They are the John F. Wallace, John
F. Stevens, and the George W.
Goethals. All were named after the
three successive chief engineers
associated with the construction of
the Canal.
These tugs, distributed one each
to Balboa, Cristobal, and Camboa.

in New York harbor and are noted

With Civic Councils

Gov. Leber Discusses

Youth Drug Problem

The problem of drug abuse by
Canal Zone youth was discussed by
Gov. W. P. Leber, Tuesday, during
the regular monthly executive ses-
sion of the U.S. Civic Councils.
"The marihuana and drug prob-
lem is increasing in the Canal Zone
and will continue to increase un-
less every parent and resident joins
in combating this problem," Gov-
ernor Leber told members of the
civic councils.
Governor Leber referred to a
recent Carnival parade incident in
Panama when 21 U.S. citizens were
arrested by the Panama National
Guard on marihuana charges. He re-
minded the council members that
many of those who were arrested
are dependents of Panama Canal
employees and that the majority of
them are students in the Canal Zone
Full coverage was given to this
incident by the Panama news media
and the coverage, for the most part,
was factual. The Panama authori-
ties, he pointed out, were very
lenient in permitting the parents to
pay fines instead of serving time.
They were also considerate in not
releasing to the press the names of
those involved.
lie pointed out that if those who
had been involved were required
to serve an appreciable part of their
sentence the result would have
been suspension from school for
excessive absence and many would
have been put behind at least 1
semester or 1 year. Two of those
arrested were charged with using
and dispensing marihuana and the
remainder for associating with
marihuana users. Both offenses are
violations of Panama's laws.
Governor Leber said the Execu-
tive Committee on Youth, Family,
and Community Relations has had
the marihuana and drug problem
under consideration for some time
and, at the recommendation of this
committee, he has established a
Drug Abuse Board, which already

has reviewed a number of cases and
taken appropriate action. The mil-
itary in the Canal Zone is co-
operating and taking similar action,
he said.
The Governor announced that in
order to assist in solving the prob-
lem the assistance of the youth of
the community is being enlisted
through the establishment of a
Youth Council made up of young
people in the Canal Zone schools
and a cross section of Canal Zone
communities who would have direct
access to the Governor's office.
(Continued on p. 4)

A full house of 550 men, a cross
section of leaders in government,
business, education, and other fields
are expected to attend the sixth
annual Canal Zone Governor's
Prayer Breakfast to be held at the
cafetorium of the Curundu Junior
High School February 24 at 7:50
The following program has been
announced by the committee in
charge of arrangements:
William Y. Boyd II, president of
Boyd Bros. Steamship Co., Panama,
will deliver the Invocation. Panama
Canal Comptroller Philip L. Steers,
Jr., will introduce the guests and
preside over the breakfast. After
breakfast is served, Edmund J. E.
Ward, general manager, Xerox of
Panama, will give the greeting on
behalf of the Panama prayer groups.
He will be followed by Capt. John
A. Duncan, U.S. Navy, Deputy Di-
rector Operations, U.S. Southern
Command, who will read the Bible
lesson from the Old Testament in
English. Gabriel Hernindez M.,
former Panamanian diplomat, will

New Gorgas Apartments

To Be Unveiled Feb. 28

Six of the new family apartments
built on the third floor of the former
section C of Gorgas Hospital will
be open for public inspection Satur-
day, February 28, from 9 a.m. to
5 p.m., it has been announced by
the Community Services Division.
The six apartments representing
each of the six floor plans available
among the 39 new two-bedroom
apartments, will be open to public

converted Gorgas Hospital section
will be advertised on the quarters
vacancy bulletin published Feb-
ruary 25 and will be assigned on
a service credit basis to the senior
applicant whose requests are on file
as of 1 p.m., March 3.

Deadline Nears

For Inspection

Of C.Z. Autos
Friday, February 27, is the last
day for automobile inspections and
the Motor Transportation Division
urges car owners to bring their cars
in now and avoid the last minute
Since approximately 22 percent
of vehicles inspected are rejected,
vehicle owners should have the in-
spection accomplished early enough
to allow sufficient time for necessary
repairs to be made and the vehicle
passed before the deadline.
Residents of the Canal Zone must
have their cars inspected every year
before the end of February. In-
spection hours at the MTD garage
are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

The new Gorgas Hospital apart-
ments were constructed by the E. O.
Hauke Construction Co., of Colon
at a cost of $548,675. Although there
are six different floor plans, each
has a living and dining room area,
two bedrooms and one bath, and
modern kitchen.
Unlike the Gorgas Hospital apart-
ments built 6 years ago, the new
apartments will not have built-in
air conditioning but facilities are
provided for its installation.

ing applications for the newly-
created position of Youth Activi-
ties Advisor. The job requires a per-

Darwin and the Beagle by Alan
Moorehead is a remarkable book
about a remarkable voyage, the
round-the-world journey of H.M.S.
Beagle from 1831 to 1836. Charles
Darwin, aged 23, was aboard as
naturalist and Robert Fitz-Roy, also
23, was captain, two bright but.
hitherto not startling young men.
The results of their journey changed
the ideas of mankind. This is a
brilliant book with wonderful

American Night, which had been

The book is a well done bad trip.
A satire in the form of a novel is
hard to do. One that sustains the
reader's interest and is a good story,
satire aside, is Roman Go Home! hV
Adam Fergusson. Set in Roman
Britain in the 50th century A.D.
the story concerns the Roman
legions withdrawing from Britain as
the empire crumbles, and the sad
love affair between a young Roman
officer and a Celtic princess. The
parallels with the world of today
are very obvious.
Bernadette Devlin, at 22 the
youngest Member of Parliament
since William Pitt, has written The
Price of My Soul to explain her
commitment to "fight for justice"
and "get something done." She is
refreshingly forthright and does not
claim to be "objectively accurate"
in this absorbing personal and poli-
tical testament.
Lovers of New York City will
read with appreciation The Great
Port by James Morris. The author
is an Englishman, commissioned by
the Port of New York Authority to
portray the city as a harbor, entered
by wharves, over bridges, through
tunnels, by air. This he does very
fully, conveying the majesty and
monstruosity, the ugly and the
beautiful, much of the history and
a very strong sense of the exhilara-
tion of New York.

he said trying to be brave.
The handsome boy with the

About 4 years ago, a Canal Zone
family, who prefers to remain
anonymous, was on its way to
spend a short vacation at Cerro Pun-
ta. As they passed through Bambito,
they were attracted by a small boy
carrying a good sized package on
his head. He waved his little hand
so vigorously and he smiled so
brightly they stopped the car and
a better look at the child revealed
that he was crosseyed. One eye was
so affected that the pupil was conm-
pletely hidden impairing his vision
so badly that he stumbled over his
little feet as he went along. They

gave him some candy and went cin
their way. After several more en
counters with the little lad, they
decided to try do something about
his eyes.
Through Father Maurice Roach,
the Catholic priest who attends to
the religious needs of the people in
that area, they contacted the boy's
mother. Although the family was
large and obviously very poor, the
mother was reluctant to be sepa-
rated from her boy. Father Roach
convinced her that it was for the
boy's good and she finally agreed
that a doctor could see him.
The Canal Zone couple discussed
the case with Dr. Melvin L. Ottis
of Gorgas Hospital who went to
Bambito on his day off. He examined
the boy and decided that his crossed

Birds Are


Canal Zone residents are advised
by the Health Bureau that pigeons
and other birds in large numbers
are carriers of diseases and should
not be encouraged, by feeding, to
gather in crowded Canal Zone
The increase in the number of
birds has caused defacing of build-
ings, air conditioners, and other
places where the birds roost. A num-
ber of residents have complained
about the problem of cleaning up
these areas.
Histoplasmosis, a systemic fun-
gus disease of man, may be con-
tracted by persons cleaning up accu-
mulations of pigeon manure which
is a suitable medium for develop-
ment of the airborne spores. Cryp-
tococcosis, another fungus infec-
tion, has been found associated with
pigeon manure and encephalitus is
transmitted from birds to man by
mosquitoes. Toxoplasmosis, a proto-
zoal disease of man and other ani-
mals is frequently found in pigeons.
To reduce the pigeon population
it will be necessary for the Divi-
sion of Sanitation to eliminate
pigeons at various locations. Al-
though trapping is the recom-
mended control measure, other
practical means also will be used
to eliminate or remove the birds
without creating a safety or per-
sonnel problem, especially on two-
story dwellings. The understanding
and assistance of the residents in
townsites where bird control is
necessary will be appreciated.

eyes could be corrected by an
Dr. Ottis explained the opera-
tion to the boy's mother. Then he
told the boy how he would go to
sleep and wake up with his eyes
corrected. "But you must not cry,"
he told the boy who nodded and
said he understood.
The Canal Zone couple made all
necessary arrangements and the boy
was admitted to Gorgas Hospital
January 13 and had surgery shortly
after. Anel was a model patient,
according to hospital personnel,
and he tried ever so hard not to
cry as he had promised the doctor.
Anel stayed with his Canal Zone
friends during the recuperation and
shared a bedroom with the son
who was about his age. Anel's eyes
are perfectly normal and he is
seeing things as they are and not
the distorted view he had before.
He went to the movies for the first
time in his life and he saw tele-
vision and he looked at objects as
though seeing them for the very
first time. He was amazed by such
spectacles as the Thatcher Ferry
Bridge, the lights on the Canal and
the wonders of Panama City.
Anel was perfectly at home with
his Canal Zone benefactors and
only the heat seemed to bother the
mountain boy, who is now looking
forward to going to school in Bam-
bito, "now that his eyes don't hurt."

after a member of the Isthmian
Canal Commission, were added to
the fleet in 1966 and 1967, respec-

of the U.S. Navy YTB 760 class
harbor tug and the result of coor-
dinated study of Panama Canal
needs by the Navigation Division
and the Industrial Division.
The tugs were built by the South-

All Age Groups

Can Learn From

Model of Canal
An interesting way for children
as well as adults to learn about
the operation of the Panama Canal
is by visiting the topographic model
of the Canal now on display at the
Civil Affairs Building from 9 a.m.
to 7 p.m., Monday through Satur-
The model, which was a part of
the Canal Zone exhibit at San An-
tonio's Hemisfair '68 and was on
display at the International Trade
Mart Building in New Orleans, is
designed to explain the complete
operation of putting ships through
the waterway from ocean to ocean.
It is equipped with lights, has
tiny ships in the Canal, and includes
scale models of the Thatcher Ferry
Bridge and the townsites along the
route. A Panama Canal guide is on
hand to answer questions and there
is a taped commentary in Spanish
and in English. The exhibit is open
to the public free of charge.

Civic Council Session

(Continued from p. 1)

Meetings will be held in the next
2 weeks.
Governor Leber said he was open
to suggestions and that attempts
would be made to encourage such
activities as scouting and sports, and
the setting up of youth centers ir
various communities. He announced
that he had decided to establish a
new position of a youth advisor to
the Governor, who will be an adult
devoting full time to youth activity
He said the Panama Canal author-
ities are seeking out sources of ma-
rihuana and hard drugs and are en-
deavoring to stop the flow of traffic
but he emphasized that in the final
analysis officials must rely on the
parents and members of the com-
munity to share the responsibility.
Parents must control their own
families and cannot rely solely on
police and other agencies to do this.
His primary interest, he said, is in
the youth of the community.
The civic councils told the Gov-
ernor they were aware of the seri-
ous problem and one member sug-
gested that a center be set up where
young people could go for advice
and therapy. Also suggested was an
increase in TV and radio publicity
on the drug problem.
The budget-dictated restructur-
ing of Atlantic side medical facili-
ties was also discussed at the meet-
ing, and it was noted that this sub-
ject would be discussed further at
a meeting called by the Atlantic

side civic councils for February 18
which the Governor would attend.
During the meeting there was a
discussion of the future of the Bal-
boa Teen Club which recently was
closed. Mrs. Darleen Ashby, pres-
ident of the Pacific Civic Council,
suggested community help of the
type given the military teen clubs
by military organizations.
In answer to a question from
Floyd Holland, president of the
Gamboa Civic Council, Governor
Leber said that at present there is
no project on foot for the construc-
tion of employee housing in any
part of the Canal Zone.
This was followed by a discus-
sion of trailer camps, house boats,
and construction of houses on lands
provided by lease from the Canal
Zone Government. The Governor
pointed out that no employee would
be allowed to own land in the Canal
Zone but that he could obtain a
license to lease.
Some other subjects discussed
were the types of movies being
provided in the Canal Zone theaters,
and the need for more dentists in
the Canal Zone, especially ortho-
dontists, and the revision of laws
requiring a license to operate a
motorcycle either on or off the
streets in the Canal Zone.

Anelito Vio Cine por Primera Vez oc 0 1t eP1 e

Luego de Intervenci6n Quirurgica I .

Perfectamente adaptado al ambiente de la Zona del Canal, Anelito no
muestra ya ning6n defecto en la vista y ejecuta normalmente todos los
juegos a que se dedican los nifios de su edad.

-jD6nde esta el alambre? Pre-
guntaba llorando un simpitico nifii-
to de unos 7 anfos a una senlora en
la Secci6n de Cirugia del Hospital
Corgas, hace unas cuantas semanas.
-iCuAil I....l.... Pregunt6 a su
vez la sefiora a la que iba dirigida
la pregunta.
La respuesta fue: "Ese alambre
que ustedes llaman tel6fono, por-
que quiero conversar con los amle-
ricanos amigos mios quie me tra-
jeron aca".
El nifio, muy blien parecido v lde
marcados rasgos de la raza india
guaymi, se llama Anel Caballero y
vive con su madre v varies hclrma-
nos en Bambito, aldea situada a
mas de 8.000 pies de altura en el
camino que va de Hato Volcan a
Cerro Punta, en las tierras altas de
Chiriqui. Esta a mis de 300 inillas
al occidente de la ciudad de Pa-
jC6mo fue que Anelito Caballc-
ro lleg6 a la Secci6n de Cirugia del
Hospital Corgas? Y c6mo fue que
se inici6 esa relaci6n entire un pe-
quefio de las montaias chiricanas
con una familiar de residents de la
Zona a los que 61 Ilama sencilla-
mente "mis amigos camericanos"?
Harat unos 4 ailos, una familiar
de ]a Zona del Canal (que ha exigi-
do permanecer en cl anoninalto) se
dirigia a Cerro Punta a tomar lunas
cortas vacaciones. Cuando pasaban
por Bambito, les llanim la atenci6n
in nifiito que cargal)a u1n paquete
en la cabeza y que los salud6 cari-
fiosamente con la mano. Detuvie-
ron el autom6vil v al observarlo
imas detenidamente, notaron que
tcnia un estrabisino pronunciado en
ambos ojos, uno de los cuales tenia
la pupila completamente oculta, de
manera que el nifio, al caminar,
tropezaba con sus propios pies.
La criatura se los gan6 con su
alegria y simpatia innatas. Fnue
desde ese momennto lque el niio los
empez6 a Ilamar "mis amigos aine-
Le regalaron unos diilces y si-
guieron su camino. El matrimonio
qued6 sumainente impresionado por
la sinmpatia personal tde Anelito, su
natural alegria y por el tremenldo
defect que sufria.
Desde entonces el nifin los espe-
raba en la carretera N los salulabal
con carifio. Ellos le dalban dulccs.
El matrimtonio decide ()que algo
podia hacerse por el niio. Por in-
termedio del Padre Maurice Roach,

sacerdote catolico que atiende a los
residents de esas regions, se pu-
sieron en contact con la madre del
nifio. Era una aunilia numerosa y
sumamente polre, pero a la madre
no le agradaba la idea de separarse
de su hijo. "Era una madre suma-
mente amorosa", es el comentario
del matrimonio zoneita y agregan:
"Pero cuando el Padre Roach la
convenci6 de que todo se hacia por
el bien del nifio, accedi6 a que lo
tuera a examiner un medico".
El Dr. Melvin L. Ottis, del Hos-
pital Gorgas, hizo un viaje hasta
Bambito en unos dias que tuvo li-
bres v decidi6 que el mal del nino
podia ser corregido mediante una
intervencion quilrrgica.
Los esposos zoneitas se dedica-
ron a efectuar las diligencias nece-
sarias para lograr la hospitalizaci6n
del nino y que los servicios que se
le prestaran en el hospital fueran
libres de costo, dada la pobreza de
la familiar.
El sibado 10 de enero de 1970,
llegaba el nilio por primer vez a la
ciudad de Panama y era recibido
en el hogar del matrimonio zoneita.
El martes 13 de enero, era inter-
nado en el Hospital Gorgas y al dia
siguiente tenia lugar la escena con
que comenz6 este articulo. Ese dia,
el Dr. Ottis le explic6 que le iban
a curar los ojos, pero que le iban
a dar una medicine para que se
durmiera y no sintiera ning6n dolor.
Pero que cuando despertara no
debia liorar para que no le doliera.
El nifio dijo que estaba bien y
cumpli6 su palabra.
El comentario del personal del
hospital es que es un magnifico pa-
ciente. El 15 de enero fue operado
por el Dr. Ottis y poco despu6s re-
gresaba a la residencia de sus pro-
tectores de la Zona del Canal. Sus
ojos estan perfectamente, ha asis-
tido a numerosos especticulos en
compafia de Bobby, el hijo del
matrimonio, y ha visto cine por
primera vez en su vida. Le han
asombrado la grandiosidad del
Puente Ferry Thatcher, las luces
del Canal de Panamia y la belleza
de la capital de la Repiblica.
Los protectors del nifio no se
cansan de alabar la habilidad pro-
fesional del Dr. Ottis y el cariFio
que en todo moment le ha dedi-
cado a Anelito. Sc ha dedicado a
61 de tal manera que se ha ganado
su absolute confianza.
El nifio se adapt perfectamnente

al ambiente de su hogar en la Zona
del Canal. Su cuarto, el que com-
parte con el hijo de la familiar, esta
en el caracteristico desorden de los
de todos los nifios. "Pero Ileva la
cuenta de todo lo que se le da y
siempre sabe d6nde ha colocado las
cosas, no import que s6lo sea un
pedazo de cordel", dice la sefiora
de la casa. "Como a todos los nifios,
le encanta saltar en la cama y ya
ha tumbado la de Bobby en dos
ocasiones", agrega sonriendo.
Cuando se le pregunta a Anelito
si le gusta su casa de la Zona del
Canal, contest enseguida que si,
pero agrega: "S61o que hace much
calor". Se comprende inmediata-
mente, pues ha pasado toda su vida
a mas de 8.000 pies de altura sobre
el nivel del mar.
A pesar de contar con s61o 7 afios
de edad (61 dice siempre que tie-
ne 8), capta todo lo que se le dice;
ya comprende casi todo lo que se
le dice cn inglhs, y estti sumamente
content porque cuando regrese a
Bambito podrit ir a la escuela y
hacer muchas cosas mas "pues ya
no me molestan los ojos".
A principios de febrero, Anelito
debia regresar a su pueblo. El dia
antes de su regreso, la sefiora que
lo habia tornado bajo su protecci6n
en la Zona del Canal estaba ata-
reada haciendole la maleta v colo-
cando en ella toda la ropa que le
han conseguido. Anelito se le acer-
c6 y le pregunt6 qcu hacia. La se-
flora Ic contest que al dia siguiente
61l deberia regresar a Bambito,
donde su mamni que lo estaba espe-
rando. Bruscamente, el niio sac6
todas las cosas de la naleta, volvi6
a colocarlas en el estate y dijo:
"No me voy. Quiero quedanne un

En Sheffield, Inglaterra, en pre-
sencia de casi todo el pueblo, el
Ej6rcito de Salvaci6n y las autori-
dades municipales, se celebraba la
botadura al agua de un yate de
acero de 18.5 metros que habia
construido en 5 afios el aficionado
Joe Phillips para dar un viaje alre-
dedor del mundo.
Se rompi6 una botella de ron
contra la proa y la embarcaci6n de
62 toncladas fue botada al agua

La Direcci6n de Salubridad ad-

pAjaros, reunidos en cantidades ex-
traordinarias, son portadores de en-
fermedades y que no debe atra6rse-

Canal, dAndoles comida.
El aumento en la cantidad de
aves ha causado suciedad en edifi-

aves acostumbran reunirse. Various
residents se han quejado acerca
del problema de tener que limpiar
esas Areas.

cada de los mosquitos. La toxoplas-
mosis, enfermedad causada en el
hombre y en otros animals por pro-
tozoarios, se encuentra frecuente-
mente en las palomas.
Para reducir la poblaci6n de pa-
lomas, serA necesario que la Divi-
si6n de Sanidad elimine las palomas
en varias localidades. A pesar de
que la media de control mAs acon-
sejable es usar trampas, tambien se
usaran otros m6todos pricticos para
eliminar o ahuyentar las aves sin
crear problems de seguridad o mo-
lestias a las personas, especialmente
en las residencias de dos pisos. Se
agradecera la compresi6n y ayuda
de los residents de las poblaciones
donde sea necesario controlar la
poblaci6n de aves.

El Canal Pondra en Venta el Remolcador...

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
sido usado en el trabajo de amplia-
ci6n del Corte. Es el primer remol-
cador que vende el Canal de Pana-
mA desde 1965, cuando el Trini-
dad I fue puesto en licitaci6n.
Los remolcadores actualmente en
servicio incluyen el Cirdenas, el
San Pablo y el Culebra, construidos
en 1944 y de servicio con la Divi-
si6n de Dragado en Gamboa. Cada
uno tiene 1.000 caballos de fuerza
y una fuerza de bolardo de 30.000
libras. La fuerza de bolardo es la
media de fuerza de arrastre que
puede ejercer el remolcador sobre
otra embarcaci6n.
El inico remolcador de salvamen-
to en alta mar del Canal, es el
Taboga, que trabaj6 con el Ramo
de Guias a la Navegaci6n cuando
fue puesto en servicio en 1947. Fue
convertido para prestar servicio de
remolque en 1959 y ahora pertene-
ce a la Divisi6n de Dragado.
Tres remolcadores nuevos fueron
construidos para el Canal en 1961
por la Diamond Manufacturing Co.,
de Savannah, Georgia. Son el John
F. Wallace, el John F. Stevens y el
George W. Goethals. Se les bautiz6
en honor de los tres ingenieros aso-
ciados con la construcci6n del Canal.
Estos remolcadores, estacionados
en Balboa, Crist6bal y Camboa,
respectivamente, son similares en di-
sefio a los que se usan en la Bahia
de Nueva York y se destacan por su
habilidad para maniobrar eficiente-
mente en espacios limitados.
Los remolcadores Hugh Rodinan,
bautizado en honor del primer Su-
perintendente de Marina del Canal,

\ el Harry H. Rousseau, bautizado
en honor de un miembro de la Co-
misi6n del Canal Istmico, fueron
afiadidos a la flota en 1966 y 1967,
respectivamente. Son versions mo-
dificadas del remolcador de bahias
de la Armada de Estados Unidos de
la clase YTB 760 y resultado de un
studio efectuado coordinadamente
por la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n y la
Division Industrial sobre las necesi-
dades del Canal de Panama.
Los remolcadores fueron cons-
truidos por la Southern Shipbuild-
ing Corp. y, a pesar de poseer ma-
quinarias de 2.000 caballos de fuer-
za, cada uno posee 70.000 libras de
fuerza de arrastre. El Rodman estl
estacionado en Balboa y el Rousseau
en Crist6bal.
Un sistema de aparatos escucha-
dores de maquinaria es una de las
caracteristicas de los poderosos re-
molcadores nuevos que estin siendo
actualmente recibidos de la South-
ern Shipbuilding Co. Equipados con
un equipo de mando de miquinas
a control remote que permit arran-
car y detener la maquinaria, al igual
que controlar las bombs desde el
puente. Estos remolcadores poseen
una fuerza de bolardo de 80.000
El Julidn L. Schley y el Trini-
dad II fueron entregados en 1968.
Tres mis del mismo tipo deberan
llegar aqui procedentes de la South-
ern Shipbuilding Co. durante el aio
