In addition to the office at Balboa,
temporary offices will be opened
at Gamboa and on the Atlantic side.

9-Month Cargo

Record Is Set

By PanCanal
The amount of cargo moving
through the Panama Canal during
the first 9 months of Fiscal Year 1970
amounted to a record 87,765,276
long tons, according to official
figures released- by the Panama
Canal this week.
The cargo came to nearly 8 million
more than the 79,789,362 long tons
which was moved through the Canal
during the same period in Fiscal
Year 1969.
Of the 87,765,276 long tons re-
ported this fiscal year, 84,226,250
long tons was carried aboard com-
mercial oceangoing ships. A total of
3,365,077 was aboard U.S. Govern-
ment-owned ships and the re
mainder of 173,949 was aboard
ships classified as free transits.
The big increase was in commer-
cial cargo while U.S. Government
shipped cargo was down more than
2 million long tons from the total
of 5,660,210 during the first 9
months of Fiscal Year 1969.
The official report confirmed un-
official statistics compiled earlier
that 11,085 oceangoing ships had

erages will range from 0 on some
items to 20 percent on others, with
an overall average increase of 15
percent over existing rates.
All room discounts for a stay of
14 or more days will be cut to 10

placed third last year. It came in
with a time of 6 hours, 43 minutes,
and 9 seconds.
Taking third place in the race was
Non Illegitimus Carborundum, a
Pacific side boat sponsored by the
USAF Tropic Survival School. It
came in just 8 minutes after
Predator. Green Machine, sponsored
by the Balboa Union Church,
second place winner in last year's
race, came in fourth with a time of
7 hours, 1 minute, and 24 seconds.
Thirteen boats competed for
awards in the 2V2-day event in which
"patch" boats also participated.
Patch boats do not compete for
awards but qualify their Explorer
Scout crew members to wear the
Cayuco Race patch on their uni-
forms. Four cayucos were disquali-
fied during the race which started
at the Cristobal Yacht Club and fin-
ished at the Rodman Naval Station.
Following the race, an awards
ceremony was held at the Rodman
Baseball Stadium and a trophy was
presented to the first place winner.
Pennants were presented to the
crews of the first, second, third, and
fourth place cayucos. Crewmen of
Destiny were presented medals and
crew members of all participating
boats including "patch" boats were
given race emblems.
The Hard Luck Award, a paddle
with a hole in it, was presented to
"patch" boat Biloxi and the Lead
Anchor Award went to Erebus,
the last place award boat.
The crew of Destiny included
Richard Bock, R. Hull, Mark Kre-
dell, and Joe Cronan. Robert Bloe-
mer, William Deaton, Peter Swain,
and Gregory Goguen crewed on

the crew of Non Illegitimus Carbo-
rundum were Charles McLain, Mike
Coman, Kenneth McIlvaine, and

Clarence George, who is shown with a number of patterns he has made,
holds a pattern for a headache ball. The headache ball will be made in
cast iron and will weigh approximately 200-pounds. It will be used as a
counterweight for the hook and cable leading from a crane.

PC Pattern Maker Keeps

On Move at Work, School

Mini, midi, or maxi-neither the
latest fashions nor the newest in
materials arouse the interest of this
pattern maker. Clarence George, the
Canal's only pattern maker, selects
the finest woods available such as
mahogany and cedar to make his
A highly skilled craftsman,
George graduated as a ship joiner
from the Panama Canal's Appren-
ticeship program in 1965. As a ship
joiner, his duties include ship dock-
ing, preparing of the drydock to
receive ships, undocking ships and
repair of damages on ships such as
temporary repairs which will enable
a ship to sail to its home port for
permanent repairs. George also
works on all the fine woodwork on
ships, such as making cabinets
steering wheels, furniture, and any
other woodwork above the hull
of the ship.
As a pattern maker, he replaces
all the patterns that need replacing
in the Panama Canal organization.
He constructs patterns for ma-
chines, rudders, bushings, and ma-
chine parts in general. He copies
from old ones and others he makes
from blueprints.
Pattern making, which was at
one time a trade by itself, was dis-
continued in the Canal Zone about
1950 and all the pattern makers
who were working in the pattern
shop left the Isthmus. Old patterns,
however, still have to be renewed.
Many of the patterns being used
date back 30 and 40 years and a
number of them made in the 1920's
are still in use.
Patterns are needed for fabricat-
ing a specific metal part either for
repairing one that is in use or for
making new parts for improvements
on machines.
George, who taught himself the
highly skilled trade, classified as
the highest in the woodworking
group, did it by looking at other

Church Auxiliary Plans
Tasting Bee Luncheon

The Woman's Auxiliary of Mar-
garita Union Church will hold its
annual Tasting Bee Luncheon
Wednesday, April 29, from 11 a.m.
to 1 p.m.
The luncheon will feature favor-
ite recipes by the church women
and booklets containing the recipes
will be on sale that day.
Tickets for the luncheon, 81.25,
may be purchased in advance or at
the door. Cochairmen for the lunch-
eon are Mrs. Ira Wiggins and Mrs.
R. J. Bradley.

patterns and supplementing th's
knowledge of observation with the
principles of pattern making taught
in books.
As the Canal's sole pattern maker,
George selects the wood and ma-
chines it to desired sizes. He then
puts it together in a fashion taking
into consideration that the element
of time should not change its prop-
erties, such as shrinkage, warpage,
etc., and that it should not lose its
shape or dimensions. He also takes
into account any shrinkage in the
metal once it is cooled. Any type
of fastener is kept at a minimum
as time and use would cause it to
become loose.
After the pattern is finished, it
is highly polished to permit easy
extraction of the pattern from the
moulding sand.
The actual making of a part from
a pattern requires placing the pat-
tern on the bottom of a board, then
putting flasks (frames that hold
moulding sand) on the board and
over the pattern and covering it
with damp moulding sand which is
compressed carefully. After cutting
gashes and holes for gas escape, the
moulder masterfully removes the
pattern from the sand, leaving an
imprint which is the exact shape
and size as the pattern. The result-
ing part is a true replica in metal of
the pattern.
George, who was presented a
Panama Canal Outstanding Per-
formance Award in 1968, joined the
apprenticeship program in 1960 as
an apprentice carpenter, was pro-
moted after 2 months to apprentice
joiner and then to apprentice ship
joiner. Previously he had graduated
from the Arts and Crafts Institute as
a master builder and Instituto Ist-
mefio in Panama where he majored
in science.
Very often a 24-hour day isn't
quite long enough for George who
gets up at 3 a.m. each day. He takes
the 4:50 a.m. train across the Isth-
mus arriving at the Industrial Divi-
sion's Woodworking Shop with a
few minutes to spare before begin-
ning work at 7 a.m. When he com-
pletes an 8-hour day at the shop,
he returns to Panama City on the
5 o'clock train and heads for the
University of Panama where he
has been attending evening classes
for the past 6 years studying archi-
tecture. His architectural studies
often find him at the drawing board
at 2 a.m.
George and his wife, Shirley, who
is a nurse at Gorgas Hospital, and
their two children, Anibal and
Uganda, live on Calle Estudiante
in Panama City.

Maj. Loren Johnson

Despedida Planned

Members of MUSICA, the Canal
Zone College Music Club will
sponsor a concert and despedida,
April 23, for Maj. Loren Johnson,
Director, U.S. Air Forces Southern
Command Band, and longtime
friend of music and musicians at
Canal Zone College.
Major Johnson arrived in the
Canal Zone in February 1966 and
assumed command of the USAFSO
Band at that time. He also made
available the services of himself and
his men in numerous concerts and
guest appearances at the college
during his tenure here. One of the
most successful activities sponsored
by the college involving Major
Johnson was an all day instrumental
music workshop and clinic held in
the spring of 1968. Major Johnson
and his outstanding bandsmen
made available their musical ex-
pertise to over 200 young musicians
from Canal Zone schools in small
sessions during the day and con-
cluded the workshop with a concert
of outstanding major works for
In appreciation of these and other
services to the college and the com-
munity, MUSICA cordially invites
the public to the farewell college
concert and reception for Major
Johnson on April 23, at 10:40 a.m.
A student of famed professional
trumpeter Don Jacoby, Major John-
son has been interested in music
since he began attending public
school in his hometown of Huron,
S. Dak. He earned a bachelor of
arts and later a master's degree in
music at South Dakota State Col-
lege, graduating in June 1959.
While at college he was assistant
band director and instructor in
brass for the college band. He also
led his own college dance band
and played in the community or-
chestra at Brookings, S. Dak. After
entering the U.S. Air Force he
played principal trumpet with the
Riverside California Symphony Or-
chestra during off duty hours.
Major Johnson is married to the

former Lynette Risch of Brookings,
S. Dak. They have two sons and a
The U.S. Air Force's USAFSO
Concert Band is no stranger to
Latin America. This widely traveled
group of 45 musicians has performed
in almost every country from Gua-
temala to Argentina, including a
concert in conjunction with Pres-
ident Johnson's visit to El Salvador.
In their role as the U.S. Air Forces
Southern Command "Ambassadors
of Music," they may be found at
various times playing for such
events as the Feria de las Flores in
San Jose, Costa Rica, the U.S. Am-
bassador's Fourth of July celebra-
tion in Quito, Ecuador, the Colom-
bian Air Force days in Bogota, or a
provincial fair in the Azuero Penin-
sula of Panama.
Certainly the USAFSO concert
band is a witness to the idea that
music is the international language.
Bringing its music to thousands of
people every year, the band is
rewarded with the enthusiasm and
spontaneous good will of their
audiences who understand the joy
of music and appreciate the pro-
fessional skill of the USAFSO

en el Ferrocarril de Panama. Naci-
do en la ciudad de David, Zelaya
no tiene reparos en declarar que los
fnicos studios escolares que hizo
fueron los de primaria. Todo lo
demis lo ha aprendido en la dura
escuela de la vida. Actualmente
reside en su casa propia en la Urba-
nizaci6n La Gloria, una de las mejo-
res secciones residenciales de la ciu-
dad de Panama. El 29 de julio de
1944, contrajo matrimonio con la
en ese entonces distinguida seiiorita
chiricana Carmen Lassonde. De esa
uni6n nacieron tres hijos, dos varo-
nes y una mujer, la mayor, Deisy
I. Zelaya de Rubio; los otros son
Luis A. Zelaya, Jr., y Jaime Luis
Zelaya. Zelaya opera actualmente
locomotoras diesel-el6ctricas en los
trenes de pasajeros y de carga y en
los patios del Ferrocarril de Pana-
m6. Pero su asociaci6n con las
locomiotoras de ferrocarril data de
muchos afios atrAs, desde cuando
trabajaba con la Chiriqui Land Co.
en Puerto Armuelles. En las planta-

de ferrocarril durante 20 afios, y

Clarence George Efectua

Labor muy Especializada

Clarence George es el 6nico car-
pintero modelador, fabricante de
patrons que trabaja en el Canal de
Panama. En un tiempo, hasta alre-
dedores de 1950, hubo un taller
para la fabricaci6n de patrons aqui.
Pero hoy dia, s61o George es el que
se encarga de efectuar esta tarea
sumamente especializada. En su tra-
bajo, s6lo utiliza las mis finas made-
ras que se puedan encontrar, tales
como la caoba y el cedro.
Artesano sumamente h6bil, George
se gradu6 como ebanista niutico en
el Program de Aprendices del
Canal de PanamA en 1965. Como
tal, sus deberes incluyen el preparar
el dique seco para recibir los barcos,
efectuar la operaci6n inversa y
hacer reparaciones temporales que
permitan a los barcos navegar hasta
sus puertos de registro para que se
les hagan reparaciones permanentes.
George hace ademAs toda clase de
trabajos de carpinteria fina de a
bordo, como la confecci6n de gabi-
netes, ruedas de tim6n, muebles y
todas clase de trabajos de carpinte-
ria necesarios en una nave.
Como carpintero modelador se
encarga de reemplazar todos los
patrons de fundici6n que necesitan
ser reemplazados, dentro de toda
la organizaci6n del Canal de Pana-
mi. Construye patrons para fundir
timones, bujes, y piezas de maqui-
naria en general. Unos patrons los
copia de los viejos, mientras que
otros los fabric utilizando pianos.
Muchos de los patrons en exis-
tencia y todavia en uso, datan desde
30 y 40 afios atrAs y algunos son
de 1920.
George es autodidacta en esta
profesi6n sumamente especializada
que es clasificada como la de mis
categoria entire las del grupo de car-
pinteria. Aprendi6 observando los
patrons y complementando el
conocimiento adquirido de esta ma-
nera, con los principios que estudi6
en libros que tratan sobre la confec-
ci6n de patrons para la fundici6n.
Los patrons son necesarios en la
fabricaci6n de piezas de metal,
necesarias para la reparaci6n de
maquinaria o fabricaci6n de
otras piezas, que significant mejoras
en dichas maquinarias.

Desde Hoy Feria

En San Vicente,

De Rainbow City
La Parroquia de San Vicente de
Pal1 en Rainbow City, celebrarA
su Feria Anual de Caridad los dias
17, 18 y 19 de abril en los terrenos
de la iglesia, desde las 7 p.m. hasta
las 11 p.m.
Habra atracciones especiales que
incluirAn tiro de centavos, estanque
de peces, dardos, tiro al blanco,
pecera y muchas otras atracciones
para la familiar.
Habra comida y bebida disponi-
Se espera que una gran cantidad
de personas acuda a la feria y que
los padres de familiar lleven a sus
pequefios hijos, ya que estos se
divertiran much con las atracciones
que alli habra.

Lee, escucha, piensa y . forma
tu opinion.

En su calidad de inico confec-
cionador de patrons del Canal,
George escoge la madera y la corta
al tamaiio que desea. Luego com-
pone el patr6n, tomando en cuenta
que con el tiempo no se vaya a enco-
ger, torcer o pierda la forma o sus
dimensions. TambiBn tiene que
tomar en cuenta que el metal se
encoge al enfriarse. Todo tipo de
aseguradores se mantiene al minimo,
pues se aflojarian con el tiempo y
el uso.
Luego que es terminado el patr6n,
se le da gran pulimento para que se
le pueda sacar fAcilmente de la
arena de moldeo.
Para hacer el molde de una pieza,
se entierra el patr6n en la arena de
moldeo (una arena especial que
tiene un 10 6 15 por ciento de
arcilla y una cantidad de aglome-
rantes) de modo que deje en ella
su huella, se apisona bien la arena
y se extrae cuidadosamente el pa-
tr6n, cuidando de que el molde
tenga suficientes respiraderos como
para sacar todo el aire de su inte-
rior cuando se vierta el metal. La
pieza que result es una replica
exacta en metal del molde.
George, quien recibi6 un Premio
por Desempefio Sobresaliente en el
trabajo en 1968, entr6 al Programa
de Aprendices en 1960 como apren-
diz carpintero; despues de 2 meses
fue ascendido a aprendiz ebanista,
y luego a aprendiz ebanista nAutico.
Anteriormente se habia graduado de
constructor en la Escuela de Artes
y Oficios "Melchor Lasso de la
Vega" y de bachiller en ciencias en
el Institute Istmefio, ambos en la
ciudad de Panama.
Muy frecuentemente, las 24 horas
del dia no le alcanzan a George,
quien se levanta a las 3 a.m. Toma
el tren de las 4:50 a.m. para ir a
trabajar en la Divisi6n Industrial,
al lado opuesto del Istmo. Llega al
Taller de Trabajos en Madera pocos
minutes antes de empezar a traba-
jar a las 7 a.m. Al final de sus 8
horas de trabajo en el taller, toma
el tren de las 5 p.m. para regresar
a la ciudad de PanamA y dirigirse
a la Universidad de PanamA, donde
asiste a classes en la Facultad de
Arquitectura desde hace 6 afios. Sus
studios de arquitectura, en muchas
ocasiones, lo mantienen pegado a la
mesa de trabajo hasta las 2 a.m.
George, su esposa Shirley, enfer-
mera en el Hospital Gorgas, y sus
dos hijos, Anibal y Uganda, resident
en la Calle del Estudiante de la
ciudad de Panama.

auto nuevo alguien viene y se lo

y confiada" ciudad de Panama,

Un Relato que fue

Demasiado Livido
Joan Hadley, instructor de la
Cruz Roja en Crabbs Cross, Ingla-
terra, fue asignada para ofrecer un
curso de Primeros Auxilios en el
Institute de Mujeres. Quiso empe-
zar con una descripci6n de un acci-
dente que por poco terminal con el
curso ese mismo dia.
Segin una de las alumnas, "una
sefiora se puso verde y sali6 preci-
pitadamente de la sala. Como media
docena con el semblante livido die-
ron sus excusas y dejaron la sala
Como consecuencia, la Sra.
Hadley ha decidido revisar sus con-
ferencias y prescindir de los deta-
lies mis sombrios. "Despuis de
todo", dice ella "los accidents
nunca son bonitos . ."
