Draft Allowance

Will Remain at

39-Foot Level
The draft allowance for vessels
using the Panama Canal will remain
at the current 39-foot level for the
next few months unless there is an
unusual period of dry weather
which would lower the level of
Gatun Lake, said Capt. A. L. Gallin,
marine director.
A notice to shippers issued by the
marine director predicted that draft
allowance given ships would be
raised to at least 39.6 feet later in
the present rainy season.
During 1971, including the Jan-
uary-May dry season, the draft
allowance is not expected to be
less than 37.6 feet, the notice said.
This is on the assumption that the
rainfall in Gatun and Madden Lake
Basins will be adequate, that traffic
will continue at the current high
level, and that water conservation
measures will be used in connection
with transit operations.
"It is hoped," he said, "that
this advance information will assist
deep-draft vessel operators in their
planning. Notices will be issued by
the Chief of the Navigation Divi-
sion, of changes in draft restrictions
within a minimum of 2 weeks prior
to the effective date for reduced
draft allowances."
The cargo carrying potentialities
of the big bulk carriers using the
Canal has been increased this year
by the Panama Canal's policy of
keeping maximum draft allowance
as deep as possible. This year, it
did not drop below 38.6 feet
because of the unusual amount of
dry season rain and good water

Prevent Drownings,
Over 60 percent of the drownings
each year result when people who
have no intention of getting wet
fall into the water from docks, boats,
bridges, shores, or pool decks, fre-
quently only a few feet from safety,
the American Red Cross reports.
A majority of the remaining 40
percent drowned while swimming
or playing in the water, again many
of them almost within reaching
distance of safety.
"Most drownings result because

Follow These Tips
people violate or ignore good water
safety practices," states Robert M.
Oswald, national director, Red Cross
Safety Programs.
Statistics reveal that drownings
around the home-pools, bathtubs,
wells, cisterns, and cesspools-claim
over 700 lives each year.
Three chief causes of home pool
drownings are temporary lack of
qualified adult supervision; absence
of, or inadequate safeguards such

This past week she has been

efforts for the earthquake victims of
This is not as simple as it sounds,
although she is glib in her descrip-
tion of the maneuvers necessary for
connecting two people in the Unit-
ed States with a ham raido opera-
tor in Peru. It also involves an
around-the-clock monitoring of the
international ham radio traffic. In
this work this week, she was assisted
by Joseph W. Winn, Jr., another
local ham.
Mrs. Johnstone said that she got
involved in the Peru disaster almost
immediately after she heard of the
earthquake on May 31. It is cus-
tomary for hams to keep a special
watch after any disaster, she said.
In this case she contacted a ham
in Lima who has been relaying
messages to other places in Peru.
She in turn has been sending on
messages from relief centers in the
United States and checking the posi-
tion of the U.S.S. Guam, a U.S.
Navy amphibious assault ship which
transited the Canal earlier this week
en route to Chimbote with food.

This is not the first major disaster
in which Mrs. Johnstone has been

Grass United Methodist Church of
Evansville, Ind., has arrived with his
family on the Isthmus to serve as

pastor of the Gatun Union Church.

Church in Massachusetts, minister
in Glacier National Park, youth
minister at East Bridgewater, Mass.,
pastor of Nashville (Ind.) Methodist
Church, and pastor of Mitchell

Public Service Award for the work
she did last year during hurricane

She also gets involved in a lot
of personal problems such as the
location of a husband who may be
somewhere on the Isthmus, or the
relaying of news of deaths of per-
sons in the United States who have
families here or in South America.
Most of her work has been con-

time to chat with her daughter and
mother in the United States and
with dozens of ham radio friends
who meet her by way of the radio

them by way of post cards as well
as radio. Some even drop in when
they are passing through the Canal
to get an "eye ball," ham jargon
meaning to look around.
In fact, Mrs. Johnstone said the
hams speak a language all their
own which no one can learn except
by repetition. It has nothing to do
with the 2-hour oral and written
examination necessary at Quarry
Heights before a license to operate
is issued.
There are about 150 licensed
hams in the Canal Zone at present
and most of them have special auto-
mobile license plates which carry
their call letters. These are also
issued by Mrs. Johnstone.
Mrs. Johnstone said she deplored
the fact that the good work being
done by the hams of the world was
seldom recognized while friends and
neighbors are quick to complain
when they come in loud and clear
on their neighborhood radio, TV
sets, or other electrical equipment.
The Johnstones themselves had
an interference problem when a
next door neighbor's ham radio mes-
sages began coming out of the
electric organ.
The music teacher, who was giv-
ing a lesson at the time, began to
get a wild light in his eye and only
regained his composure when the
trouble was located.



June 19, 1970

Washington, D.C., Police Chief Jerry Wilson receives a swagger stick from
Carlos Williams, wage and classification specialist for the Personnel Bureau.
The swagger stick was sent to Chief Wilson by Canal Zone Police Chief
Gaddis Wall in appreciation for courtesy extended during the past few
years. Williams, whose job is to classify Police Division positions, was given
a tour of the Metropolitan Police facilities and briefed on organizational
structure and responsibilities.

Prevent Drownings

as fences and rescue equipment,
and the inability of victims to float
or swim. The home pool drowning
rate is highest among children under
4, the safety director said; there-
fore home pool owners should take
regular precautions around the pool
site and make the area "kidproof."
Oswald stressed that one way to
make sure children can't accident-
ally fall into the pool is to erect a
fence of sufficient height around the
facility, keeping the gate locked at
times when there is no supervision
available for swimmers.
The shallow and deep ends of
the pool should be clearly marked
with buoy lines. Breakable items
such as glasses and bottles should
not be allowed around the pool
area. And pool rules should pro-
hibit running or "horseplay" near
the pool edge.
"No matter how many safety
measures are taken," said Oswald,
"the best way to help insure
that accidents don't claim lives is
through training. Someone in the
family should know how to give
artificial respiration. Youngsters
should be taught to float and swim
at an early age, and simultaneously
they should be made to understand
their limitations."

Longtime Resident

To Retire in Florida
More than of a millionships
have passed through the Panama
Canal since Hermanus A. Kleefkens,
supervisory marine traffic controller
in Cristobal, started working as a
controller in the Cristobal Port
Captain's Office.
And as a marine traffic controller,
he has had a hand in scheduling
most of them for transit.
Kleefkens, who is retiring from
Canal service this month and will
leave the Canal Zone for Florida
on July 16, has spent most of his
life in the Canal Zone.
Although he was born in Hobo-
ken, N.J., he came to.the Isthmus
with his family at the age of 2. His
father, Herman Kleefkens, Sr., was
a chief tugboat engineer with the
Canal. The family lived in Paraiso,
and Gamboa but spent most of their
time in Cristobal.
Kleefkens, Jr., attended the Canal
Zone schools, worked on summer
jobs in high school, and was em-
ployed as a clerk in the Marine Di-
vision in 1936. He became a marine
traffic controller in 1944 and has
been supervisory marine traffic con-
troller since 1958.

Mules Don't Run on Mush

A young British sailor making
his first transit through the Pan-
ama Canal aboard the SS Cape
Rodney on June 12 had been
saving scraps of bread for weeks.
By the time the ship reached
the Canal the lad had about a
3-foot high pile and hauled it to
the main deck where he pro-
ceeded to collect buckets full of
water to mix with the bread.
An older "salt" who had a
keen interest in the proceedings
turned to the Canal pilot and
exclaimed with a humorous
gleam in his eyes as the vessel
reached the first locks, "you

didn't tell me they changed to
mechanical mules," making sure
the young sailor heard him.
The older man earlier had
told the boy that the Panama
Canal "mules" loved bread
mixed with water and that he
should start collecting bread.
When the merchant ship
reached Gatun Locks the light
dawned. The mules, the boy
learned, were not the four legged

y Nugent "Tutu" Joseph, jugador de beisbol en sus afios mozos, ambos em-
pleados de la Secci6n de Manejo de Carga de la Divisi6n de Terminales en
Crist6bal, comentan la gran acogida que tuvo entire sus compaileros de
trabajo la idea de patrocinar un equipo de la Liga Interna de Baloncesto
del Colegio Abel Bravo de la ciudad de Col6n. El equipo se Ilamara
Terminals Division.

Las Piscinas Constituyen

Un Peligro Para los Nihos

Mis del 60 por ciento de las
muertes por inmersi6n que ocurren
durante el afio se deben a que per-
sonas que no tienen la menor in-
tenci6n de mojarse caen al agua de
muelles, botes, puentes y de la ori-
lla del mar o de una piscina, a solo
pocos pies de la salvaci6n, dice un
informed de la Cruz Roja Americana.
La mayoria del 40 por ciento res-
tante se ahog6 mientras nadaba o
jugaba en el agua y tambi6n mu-
chos de ellos a pocos pies de dis-
tancia de un lugar seguro.
"La mayoria de las muertes por
inmersi6n se deben a que las per-
sonas violan o ignoran las reglas de
seguridad en el agua" ha declarado
Robert M. Oswald, director nacio-
nal de los Programas de Seguridad
de la Cruz Roja.
Las estadisticas revelan que las
muertes de esta clase en las cer-
canias del hogar-tinas de bafio,
piscinas, pozos, cisternas y tanques
s6pticos-privan de la vida a unas
700 personas al afio.
Las tres principles causes de
muertes en las piscinas hogarefias
son: falta temporal de vigilancia
adecuada de parte de los adults;
ausencia de, o inadecuadas salva-
guardas, tales como verjas y equipo
de rescate, y el que las victims no
supieran nadar ni flotar. Estas
muertes causan la mayoria de las
muertes de los nifios de menos de
4 afios, declar6 el director de segu-
ridad; por lo tanto los que tengan
piscinas en sus casas deben tomar
las precauciones regulars alrede-
dor del lugar donde esta la piscina

A Inscribirse

En el Derby de

Los Carritos
El Derby de Carritos de Cajones
de la Zona del Canal de 1970 esta
sefialado para el 18 de julio, y el
ganador de este afio recibirA un
Bono de Ahorro de EE. UU. de
$500 de la Chevrolet, un bonito
trofeo y un viaje con todos los gas-
tos pagados a Akron, Ohio, para
competir en el 339 Grand Prix Ame-
ricano de Carritos de Cajones en
Derby Downs.
En la internacionalmente famosa
carrera, el campe6n de la Zona del
Canal competirA contra muchachos
de todo el mundo por un total de
$30.000 en becas que sernn conce-
didas por la Chevrolet, patrocina-
dor national, a los que ocupen las
nueve primeras posiciones.
En la carrera en Akron, la Che-
vrolet donarA una beca universita-
ria de $7.500 para el ganador y
otros $22.500 en becas divididas
entire los ocho finalists.
Para mayor informaci6n, los mu-
chachos interesados deberAn llamar
a Fuerte Clayton 2202 6 6292 y a la
Oficina de Servicios Especiales de
la organizaci6n del Canal, Balboa

y convertir el Area en una "a prueba
de nifios".
Oswald sefial6 que una manera
de mantener la piscina segura para
los niios es levantar una cerca alre-
dedor de ella y mantenerla tran-
cada cuando no puede haber una
adecuada vigilancia en ella.
Las parties profundas y las de
poco fondo deberAn estar claramen-
te marcadas con una linea de boyas.
No deberA permitirse en el Area al-
rededor de la piscina articulos que
se puedan quebrar tales como vasos
y botellas. Tambi6n deberA prohi-
birse correr o hacer payasadas cerca
de la orilla de la piscina.
"No importa cuAntas medidas de
seguridad se adopten", dijo Oswald,
'"a mejor manera de disminuir los
accidents consiste en la educaci6n.
Alguien en la familiar debe saber dar
respiraci6n artificial. Debe ensefiar-
se a los nifios a nadar y a flotar
desde temprano y simultAneamente
se les deberA hacer comprender sus
Puesto que la mayoria de las
muertes por inmersi6n suceden a
pocos pies de la seguridad, frecuen-
temente es possible que una persona
que no sepa nadar, o una que no
sepa nadar bien, pueda salvar a
otra persona sin tener que nadar,
declar6 el funcionario de la Cruz

Empleados de Terminales

Auspician "5" de A. Bravo

Cuando un grupo de estudiantes
del Colegio Abel Bravo de Col6n
se acerc6 recientemente a la Divi-
si6n de Terminales de la Direcci6n
de Transporte y Terminales para
ver si podia patrocinar un equipo
de baloncesto, se le dijo: "Lo senti-
mos muchachos, pero no hay par-
tida official para hacerlo".
Notando la tristeza en los rostros
de los muchachos, W. M. Brown,
Superintendente Ayudante Interino
entonces, pens6, sin embargo, que
no habia nada que impidiera a los
empleados de la Divisi6n patroci-
nar un equipo si asi lo deseaban.
Con las contribuciones organiza-
das por Alfredo Vega, de la Esta-
ci6n de Inspecci6n y ex alumno del
Abel Bravo, y por Nugent Joseph,
los empleados de la Secci6n de Ma-
nejo de Carga pensaron que era

una idea que valia tanto la pena
que se recaud6 lo suficiente para
equipar a una docena de muchachos
con uniforms de baloncesto.
El nuevo equipo, con TERM.
DIV. adornando sus camisetas, fue
bautizado esta semana en el Gim-
nasio Claudia Lowe del Colegio
Abel Bravo y competirA con otros
equipos en la categoria intermedia.
Como atracci6n especial, la Srta.
Sheila Endara, ayudante estudian-
til en la division, fue escogida
como madrina del quinteto.
Se cree que esta es la primera vez
que un grupo de empleados de
cualquier division del Canal de
Panama ha patrocinado un equipo
deportivo de afuera, y se piensa que
la idea puede llevarse a otras divi-

Radioaficionada Presta su Ayuda...

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
ci6n del portahelic6pteros Guam,
de la Armada de EE. UU. que tran-
sit6 por el Canal a principios de la
semana pasada de paso para Chim-
bote con alimentos, suministros mB-
dicos y 17 helic6pteros.
Este no es el primer gran desas-
tre en el cual la Sra. Johnstone ha
estado envuelta por la via del sis-
tema de estaciones de radioaficiona-
dos y probablemente no serA el
iltimo. Recientemente recibi6 un
Premio por Servicio P6blico por el
trabajo que hizo el afio pasado du-
rante el Huracan Camille que azot6
a various Estados del sur.
Tambi6n se ve envuelta en mu-
chos problems personales tales
como el paradero de un esposo que
puede estar en cualquier parte del
Istmo, o difundiendo noticias de
fallecimientos de personas en los
Estados Unidos que tienen fanni-
liares aqui o en la Am6rica del Sur.
La mayor part de su trabajo es
escuchar las cadenas de urgencia,
pero encuentra tiempo para conver-
sar con su hija y su madre en los
Estados Unidos y con docenas de
amigos radioaficionados que la han
conocido a traves del transmisor de
Su esposo, el CapitAn Henry K.
Johnstone, prActico del Canal, tra-
baja con ella en la radio pero limita
la mayor parte de sus operaciones a
conversaciones familiares. El tam-
bi6n construy6 un equipo Heathkit
de 180 vatios con el cual operan.
Con este equipo pueden comu-
nicarse con casi todas parties del
mundo y durante 11 afios han ha-

blado con lugares tan lejanos como
el Jap6n, Alaska y muchos paises
europeos. Han hecho muchas amis-
tades, muchas de las cuales se co-
munican con ellos mediante tarje-
tas postales lo mismo que por la
La Sra. Johnstone dice que el
radioaficionado habla un idioma
propio que nadie puede aprender
except por repetici6n. No tiene
nada que ver con las 2 horas de
examen oral y escrito necesario en
Quarry Heights antes de ser expe-
dida una licencia para operar.
Hay unos 150 radioaficionados li-
cenciados en la Zona del Canal y
la mayoria tiene places especiales
de autom6vil que Ilevan sus letras
de llamada. Estas son expedidas
tambi6n por la Sra. Johnstone.
La Sra. Johnstone dijo que de-
ploraba el hecho de que el exce-
lente trabajo que estan haciendo
los radioaficionados del mundo era
pocas veces reconocido, mientras
los amigos y vecinos no pierden el
tiempo para quejarse cuando en-
tran fuertes y claros en los radios,
receptors de TV u otros equipos
el6ctricos de la vecindad.
Los mismos Johnstone han tenido
problems de interferencia cuando
los mensajes radiales de un vecino
radioaficionado de al lado, comen-
zaron a salir por el 6rgano el6ctrico.
La profesora de musica, que es-
taba dando una lecci6n, comenz6 a
cambiar de color del susto, y s61o
se compuso cuando se localiz6 el
problema y la transmisi6n del ra-
ioaficionado fue suspendida.
