Tugmaster Training


Program Progressing


Two young men, a U.S. citizen
and a Panamanian, have been issued
licenses as Third Mate following
completion of the first phase of the
Panama Canal's 5-year tugmaster in-
service training program.
Earl H. Holder, of Panama, and
James P. Young, of Balboa, were
selected as Navigation Division in-
service trainees in August 1968, and
are the first to receive Third Mate
licenses under this program.
As a part of the training program,
Holder and Young worked on deck
and in the pilot houses of Panama
Canal tugs under the supervision of
experienced tugmasters. They also
attended classes at the Apprentice
School in the Personnel Bureau
Training Center in Balboa.
Tugmaster trainees take related
technical courses and have on-the-
job training assignments in keeping
with their background qualifications
and past experience. They are given
appropriate level license examina-
tions when technical knowledge and
required skills have been acquired.
The related technical course work
for the tugmaster program includes
such subjects as industrial mathe-
matics, principles of measurements,
and physics, a series of appropriate
courses in electricity, rigging trade
theory, steelship blueprint reading,
advanced chart navigation, piloting
and seamanship, docking proce-
dures, hydraulic control mecha-
nisms, mechanical drawing, firefight-
ing, first aid, and industrial hazards.
Holder and Young are presently
assigned as masters of the small tug
Chame assisting in dredging opera-
tions in Cristobal. Holder has many


CRISTOBAL

SCHEDULE

REVISED
The sailing schedule of the SS
Cristobal is being revised for the
remained of the calendar year to
allow for the orderly receipt and
loading of continued heavy cargo
commitments and the usual heavy
seasonal shipments.
The revised schedule covering the
period from September 18 to the
end of the year is shown on page 4.


PANAMA TOURIST
INSTITUTE STARTS
NEW PUBLICATION
The Panama Tourist Institute has
launched a new publication, PAN-
AMA TOURIST INFORMATION, which
gives the latest developments in the
Nation's growing tourist industry.
The monthly publication is print-
ed in both Spanish and English edi-
tions and is edited by members of
the staff of IPAT, the Panama Gov-
ernment Tourist Institute.
TOURIST INFORMATION is distrib-
uted to embassies, consulates, travel
agencies, airlines, all Panama Gov-
ernment offices, the Panama Canal
Information Office, and the offices
of IPAT in the United States.


years of experience as a Panama
Canal launch operator and Young
has previous experience on tugs in
the U.S. Navy.
Other in-service trainees are Wil-
liam R. Boggs and Jack Core, of
the Dredging Division; and Beverly
G. Allen, Norman P. Dixon, and
Robert N. Moolchan, of the Naviga-
tion Division. Boggs joined the pro-
gram in 1968 and the others in 1969.

Minibike F


Is Creating
The increased popularity of mini-
bikes has created a safety hazard
and, to a good many people, a
nuisance in several Canal Zone
townsites.
Recognizing this problem, the
Governor, with the cooperation of
the Civic Councils, has established
numerous areas within the town-
sites for riding minibikes. These
areas are being posted with signs
which state:
"Operation of minibikes author-
ized in this area between 9 a.m. and
6 p.m. Ride carefully for your safety
and that of others. Reckless driving
is a punishable offense. Operation
of motorcycles of more than 125 cc.
or 5 hp. is prohibited in this area."
The minibikes cannot be ridden in
the streets unless they and the oper-
ators are licensed. For this reason,
children are now frequently seen
riding across lawns and open areas.
This has resulted in unsightly tracks
and trails. The water that stands in
the gouged-out hollows may pose a
health problem as well. Moreover,
it poses a threat to the safety of
pedestrians, both adults and small

Problems
children who play on sidewalks and
in the yards. The noise that the ma-
chines generate is another factor
that causes them to be a nuisance
to other people.
The Canal administration has re-
ceived numerous formal complaints
from residents asking that steps be
taken to alleviate the problem. With
this in mind, a housing regulation
is being drawn up that will restrict
the use of minibikes around living
quarters and on public sidewalks
and other areas. Their use is ex-
pected to be limited to the estab-
lished sites that are marked with
signs permitting the riding between
9 a.m. and 6 p.m. The vehicles that
are unlicensed will have to be
pushed by hand to those sites or
transported by other means.
Occupants of Canal Zone quar-
ters will be expected to observe the
regulation and see that none of the
members of their household oper-
ates the machines except in the
authorized areas. In cases of viola-
tions, parents of the offenders will

in first class operating condition. The "Cascadas," which
was built in 1913, had been used almost continuously
on the Cut widening work for the past 5 years while
receiving only minor repairs.


Football and

To Highlight
Football season opens officially in
the Canal Zone with the big annual
senior Jamboree to be held at Coco
Solo Stadium, Friday, September 18.
Festivities will get underway at
6:25 p.m. when the teams assemble
on the field, standing on the s'de-
lines as the Jamboree queens repre-
senting the competing teams, Canal
Zone College, Balboa High School,
and Cristobal High School, and the
cheerleaders arrive at the stadium.
Following the parade of colors by
the Cristobal High School ROTC
color guard, the national anthem
will be played by the band. The
team captains will then escort each

Cristobal High School senior,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth
Daly of La Boca, Canal Zone Col-
lege second semester freshman.
Three quarters of football will be
played with the teams of Cristobal
High and Balboa High beginning
the contest at 7 p.m.
The Cristobal High School girls
drill team will perform during the
15-minute intermission following
the first quarter.
Canal Zone College and Cristobal
High School will compete in the
second quarter and, during the in-
termission after this game, the Cris-
tobal High School ROTC drill team
will entertain the audience with its
skills of precision.
The last quarter will be played
by Balboa High School and Canal
Zone College.
The team that wins the most
quarters will be declared Jamboree
champion. Should two teams tie for
the lead, the winner will be the
team that scored the most points
against the other team that is tied
for first place. A trophy will be
awarded to the winning team.
The Jamboree was started 20
years ago by former coach Luke
Palunbo, one year after tackle foot-
ball was initiated on the Isthmus.
Cristobal High School has won six
of the contests, Balboa High School
has won four times, Canal Zone

School Night Scouting


Program Being Planned


Plans are being readied for the
Canal Zone's 2d annual School
Night for Scouting, which is sched-
uled for 7 p.m., September 21, in

learn about the scouting movement
and to register with the units of
their choice as future members. It's
also a night when adults can find out
about scouting and join up as
advisors.

While the minibikes are usually
powered by motors of less than 125
cc., they can be driven at speeds
dangerous to the safety of the riders
as well as pedestrians. For this
reason, Canal Zone safety officials
recommend a series of precautions.
Within the designated sites, mini-
bike riders should follow the flow
of traffic, and at a safe distance.
Bikes are to be parked out of the
flow of traffic. Riders should keep
both hands on the handlebars, wear
helmet with eyeshield or goggles
and avoid cutting off other drivers.
And, as with driving any vehicle,
courtesy pays.

EL CANAL DE PANAMA





Spillway


Vol. IX, No. 13 Mds de 56 AIos al Scrvicio del Comercio Mundial Viernes 11 de Septiembre de 1970



Establecen Areas Para ~


Operar Minimotonetas ,


La popularidad en aumento de las
minimotonetas ha creado un peligro
a la seguridad y una molestia para
muchisimas personas de ]a Zona del
Canal.
Reconociendo este problema, el
Gobernador, con la cooperaci6n de
los Consejos Civicos y la Policia de
la Zona del Canal, ha establecido
numerosas Areas, dentro de los po-
blados, donde puedan operarse las
minimotonetas. Estas Areas estAn
marcadas con letreros que dicen:
"Se permit operar minimotone-
tas en esta Area entire las 9 a.m. y
las 6 p.m. Operelas con cuidado por
su propia seguridad y la de otros.
El manejo desordenado es una falta
punible. En esta Area esta prohibido
operar motocicletas de mas de
125 cc. o de mAs de 5 caballos de
fuerza".
Las minimotonetas no pueden ser
montadas en las calls a menos que
tanto ellas como los que las operan
tengan licencia. Es por esta raz6n
que con frecuencia se ven nifios en
minimotonetas corriendo sobre el
cesped de las residencias y en Areas
abiertas. Esto ha resultado en zan-
jas y senderos de feo aspect. El
agua que se queda en los huecos de
las zanjas puede constituir una ame-
naza para la salubridad. Por otra
part, constitute una amenaza para
la seguridad de los peatones, tanto
para los adults como para los nifios
pequefios que juegan en las aceras
y en los patios. El ruido que dichos
vehiculos general es otro factor que
causa molestia a otras personas.
La administraci6n del Canal ha
recibido numerosas quejas formales
de parte de los residents que soli-
citan que se tomen las medidas del
caso para aliviar el problema. Como
resultado de esto, se estA preparan-
do un reglamento de la vivienda que
restringira el uso de minimotonetas
alrededor de las residencias y en las
aceras plblicas lo mismo que en
otras Areas. Se espera que su uso
sea limitado a los lugares estableci-
dos que estAn marcados con letre-
ros permitiendo que se monten
entire 9 a.m. y 6 p.m. Los vehiculos
que no tienen licencia tendran que
ser empujados a mano a aquellos


sitios o transportados por otros
medios.
Se espera que los ocupantes de
residencias en la Zona del Canal
hagan cumplir estos reglamentos
dentro de las areas que ocupan. En
caso de violaciones, los padres de
los infractores corrernn el riesgo de
perder sus privilegios de residencia
en la Zona del Canal.
Antes de su adopci6n, un proyec-
to de los nuevos reglamentos sera
presentado a los representantes de
los Consejos Civicos, quienes ten-
drAn tiempo de estudiarlo y expre-
sar sus puntos de vista en las sesio-
nes ejecutivas de septiembre de los
Consejos Civicos, que serAn las pri-
meras reunions de esa clase que
tendran lugar desde que comenz6
el intervalo de verano.
A pesar que las minimotonetas
por lo comuin son accionadas por
motors de menos de 125 cc., si pue-
den ser operadas a velocidades pe-
ligrosas para sus conductores y tam-
bien para los peatones. Por esta ra-
zon, los funcionarios de seguridad
de la Zona del Canal recomiendan
una series de precauciones.
Dentro de los sitios sefialados,
los conductores de motonetas debe-
ran seguir la direcci6n del trafico y
guardar la distancia debida. Las bi-
cicletas deberin ser estacionadas le-
jos del flujo del trifico. Los conduc-
tores deberin sostener el manubrio
con ambas manos, deberan portar
casco protector con visera trans-
parente o anteojos de seguridad
y en todo moment deberan evitar
cruzar a los demis conductores.
Y deberin recorder que, al igual
que cuando se conduce cualquier
vehiculo, la cortesia siempre paga.


Cierres por Inventario
La Secci6n D (en Gamboa) per-
manecerA cerrada debido a inven-
tario todo el dia martes 15 de sep-
tiembre, y nuevamente para recuen-
to el jueves 19 de octubre. Las en-
tregas de urgencia serAn hechas ini-
camente cuando sean solicitadas por
jefes dedivisi6n. Todas las ventas
serAn prohibidas durante ambos
cierres.

A mi me parece que es una gran
ciudad, formidable y en ciertos as-
pectos, dura. Pero los que desean
verdaderamente alcanzar un objeti-

por conseguirlo, encuentran siem-

El President Nixon Obsequio




Un Boligrafo a C. Parkinson


Uno de los beneficiaries de com-
pensaci6n en efectivo que mas se
alegr6 con la aprobaci6n de la ley
que beneficia a las viudas de dichos
viejos empleados del Canal de Pana-
mA fue Constantino Parkinson.
Parkinson, casi no necesita pre-
sentaci6n, pues hace cerca de 1 afio
nos referimos a 61 en el SPILLWAY
como uno de los ciudadanos que en
el sector AtlAntico se active mis en
beneficio de la comunidad, a pesar
de que le falta una piema y part
del pie izquierdo, debido a un acci-
dente de ferrocarril.
Parkinson se alegr6 tanto con la
firma de la ley, que le escribi6 al
President de los Estados Unidos,
Richard M. Nixon, solicitAndole le
enviara una de las plumas con que
habia firmado la ley. La carta de
Parkinson parece que lleg6 algo tar-
de y no le pudieron enviar una de
las plumas usadas por el Presidente.
En su lugar le enviaron un bonito
boligrafo de metal amarillo que tie-
ne grabada la firma del Presidente
Nixon. Parkinson se la ensefia a todo
el mundo y esta sumamente orgu-
lloso de poseerla.
Parkinson trabaj6 con la empre-
sa del Canal durante mas de 40
afios. Cuando los dias de la cons-
trucci6n, trabajaba con el Ferroca-
rril de Panama como guardafrenos,
que fue cuando sufri6 el accident.
Luego desempefi6 diferentes traba-
jos v finalmente, desde 1917 a 1957,
fue guardia en los Muelles de Cris-
t6bal.


A los 76 aiios, tiene la mente su-
mamente despierta, es fanAtico de
la TV y recuerda muy bien loS pri-
meros dias de su nifiez, que la pas6
en uno de los lugares mIs bellos de
la Bahia Limon, Playa de Flor, lu-
gar donde naci6. Ese lugar se llama
ahora Fuerte Sherman y por alli se
pasa cuando uno va a visitar las rui-
nas del Fuerte San Lorenzo, en la
desembocadura del Rio Chagres.


El tiempo libre ya no es un pro-
blema. Gracias a los modernos mB-
todos de transport, uno lo usa todo
viajando hacia y desde el trabajo.

Septiembre 15-Independencia de los paises centroamericanos: Guatemala,
El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua y Costa Rica (1821). Se celebra con
actos patri6ticos y desfiles militares en cada uno de esos paises.
Septiembre 16-Se conmemora en esta fecha el "Grito de Dolores", el
primer movimiento popular independentista de M6xico, encabezado por
el Cura Miguel Hidalgo, en el pueblo de Dolores. Los indios lo siguieron
y estuvo a punto de tomar la capital, pero fue derrotado y fusilado en
1811. En ese aiio, los insurgents, con Ray6n al frente formaron una junta
de Gobierno en Zitacuaro; al afio siguiente, derrotados estos, se empez6 a
destacar otro cura como jefe de los insurgentes: el Cura Morelos, que
form un Congreso que dict6 la Constituci6n Politica de Apatzingan,
pero tambi6n fue vencido y ejecutado en 1815. No fue sino hasta 1821
cuando el General Iturbide, por medio del Plan de Iguala, logr6 cimen-
tar la independencia de M6xico. Luego, Iturbide se proclam6 emperador,
fue derrocado y cuando intent regresar, muri6 fusilado.
Septiembre 18-20-Tiene lugar la Feria Regional de Bocas del Toro.
Septiembre 23-27-Vig6simo Segundo Festival de la Mejorana en GuararB,
pintoresca poblaci6n situada a unas 174 millas al suroeste de la ciudad
de PanamA. El Festival de la Mejorana fue iniciado gracias a los esfuer-
zos de dos grande cultores del folklore panamefio, el Dr. Manuel Fer-
nando Zirate (q.e.p.d.) y su esposa la Profesora Dora P6rez de Zirate,
quien sigue dAndole el impulse que su esposo le dio en vida. Este fes-
tival es una magnifica manera de contemplar los vestidos, los bailes y las
costumbres del interior de PanamA. Tambi6n es el festival en que se apre-
cian los cantos verdaderamente tipicos de la Regi6n de Azuero, que es
donde naci6 el folklore de PanamA.
Septiembre 29-Fiesta de San Miguel Arcingel, patrono de San Miguel en
las Islas de las Perlas. En este dia, en el afio de 1513, desde un picacho
de las montaiias del Darien, Vasco Nifiez de Balboa vio a la distancia
las azules aguas del Oc6ano Pacifico, que 1l llam6 "La Mar del Sur".
Habia descubierto el oceano mis grande del mundo.

Una nueva figure que se vera por
los lados del Edificio de la Capita-
nia del Puerto de Balboa, para ser
mas precisos, en la Oficina de los
Arqueadores, es la de la Sra. Matil-
de P6rez de Guardia. La Sra. de
Guardia es nacida en Col6n de pa-
dre espafiol y madre panamefia. Su
esposo es Rafael R. Guardia T.,
nacido en Col6n pero de familiar de
estirpe penonomefia y trabaja con
Combustibles de PanamA, S.A.

En este mundo es raro encontrar
la combinaci6n de algo que dure
muchisimos afios y una persona que
guste de conservar ese articulo du-
rante todos los afios que dure. Ge-
neralmente, los humans nos abu-
rrimos e inventamos una excusa para
deshacernos del durable articulo.
Pero Ernest Ronald Johnston, ca-
marero en la Casa de Hubspedes
Tivoli constitute una de esas raras
excepciones. En 1929, cuando con-
taba s61o 15 afios de edad, compr6
una maquina de afeitar. Era el tiem-
po en que comenzaban a llegar las
primeras maquinas de afeitar Gil-
lette que se conocieron en PanamA.
Dice Johnston que desde entonces
usa esa misma miquina de afeitar,
porque ha probado otras nuevas y
no afeitan como la que compr6
cuando todavia era nifio en una
tienda de un chino en la ciudad de
PanamA, hace 41 afios.

Hace poco hablAbamos en el
SPILLWAY del caso de dos hermanas,
empleadas de la Divisi6n de Escue-
las, que se casaron con dos herma-
nos. Ahora les hablaremos de un
caso curioso tambi6n pero algo di-
ferente de dos empleados del Canal
de PanamA. Se llaman Robert H.
Stewart y Joanne L. Stewart. Ambos
son ingenieros, se han especializado


en geologia y son esposos. Tambien
trabajan en el mismo lugar: en el
tercer piso del Edificio de Adminis-
traci6n en la Divisi6n de Ingenie-
ria, aunque generalmente, especial-
mente en estos dias de grandes
aguaceros pasan gran parte. de su
tiempo en las riberas del Corte Gail-
lard del Canal de Panama, vigilando
posibles movimientos de tierra en
esa area.


Miraflores es una palabra bastan-
te familiar para los de habla his-
pana. Manuel Pando FernAndez Pi-
nedo, Marqu6s de Miraflores, fue
gran historiador espafiol, nacido en
Madrid en 1792 y muerto en 1872.
Miraflores se llama un municipio del
Estado de BoyacA en Colombia que
cuenta con 12.500 habitantes. Un
cerro de la Cordillera Oriental de
Colombia, de 2.800 metros de altu-
ra, se llama Cerro de Miraflores.
Una de las mas famosas cartujas de
EspaTia, cerca de la ciudad de Bur-
gos, es la Cartuja de Miraflores, fun-
dada en el Siglo XV por Juan II,
conserve su sepulcro y el de su es-
posa Isabel de Portugal. Un barrio
residential de Lima, Peri, famoso
por sus parques.y paseos se llama
asi y alli se encuentra el Palacio
Presidential del Perin, que por esa
raz6n se llama Palacio de Miraflores.
En Caracas, Venezuela, el Palacio
de Miraflores es la Casa Presiden-
cial.


Aqui en PanamA, ademAs de las
famosas Esclusas de Miraflores del
Canal de PanamA, existe tambi6n la
barriada de Miraflores que tambien
se conoce con el nombre de barria-
da del Maestro y est, a la vera de
la Via Bolivar, en la ciudad de
PanamA.


Carl O. Riggs, Jr. (a la derecha), Jefe de la Divisi6n Industrial, felicita a
Leonicio Santamaria, al entregarle un certificado que lo acredita como
miembro del "Club de la Tortuga" y un casco protector especial que lo
identifica como miembro del mencionado club. Santamaria, resident en
Escobal, a orillas del Lago Gat6n, trabajaba al lado de un barco, el 29 de
enero de cste anio, cuando el viento hizo que una escalera de aluminio de
17 libras de peso le cayera sobre la cabeza. Si no hubiera tenido su casco
protector puesto, Santamaria hubiera sufrido una seria lesi6n.

it v 9. i1 Las Escaleras Deben

Usarse Debidamente


"1QOu pasd con la red doe sguridad?"


Hay una vieja tonadilla espaiola,
popular en toda Latinoamerica y
Espafia, que dice: "Para subir al
cielo se necesita de una escalera
grande y otra chiquita".
La escalera es quizAs uno de los
instruments mas antiguos y mas
usados por el hombre dentro y fue-
ra del trabajo. fNos hemos detenido
a pensar en la cantidad de riesgos
que corremos cada vez que ejecuta-
mos la simple y rutinaria tarea de
subir y bajar por una escalera?
Si no queremos utilizar la esca-
lera tde subir al cielo, acord6monos
de usar como so debe a la "chiqui-
ta", o sea la del trabajo diario, la
cual-en verdad-no pede ser ni de-
inasiado chiquita, ni demasiado
grande, sino del tamaiio adecuado
para la tarea que estemos desempe-


fiando, si es que no queremos aca-
bar prematuramente en el cielo, en
el hospital, o ser victims de una
molesta magulladura o, por lo me-
nos, de un susto.
Subiremos fAcilmente por la es-
calera grande de la vida si nos acor-
damos de tres simples reglas cuan-
do subamos o bajemos por la de
trabajo: Dar el frente a la escalera;
cualquiera otra posici6n queda re-
servada para los acrobatas y paya-
sos de los circos. Tener las manos
libres para agarrarse a los escalones,
regla observada hasta por los acr6-
batas mas audaces. Usar una bolsa
para las herramientas, lo cual nos
dari mayor libertad de movimiento,
nos ahorrari' subidas y bajadas ini-
tiles v evitarbi que se nos caigan los
tiles de trabajo.

Wilfred M. Smith, quien presta servicios en el Taller de Carpinteria de la
Division Industrial en Mount Hope, muestra el casco protector especial que
de ahora en adelante lo identificarA como miembro del exclusive "Club de
la Tortuga". Smith se encontraba el 4 de marzo de 1970 trabajando en el
cuarto de maquinas del remolcador "Rodman" del Canal de PanamA, cuan-
do le cay6 un conduct de aire en la cabeza. Smith tenia puesto su casco
protector en esos moments lo que evit6 que sufriera una lesi6n seria. El
Jefe de la Divisi6n Industrial, Carl O. Riggs, Jr., le entreg6 el certificado
que lo nombra en propiedad miembro del "Club de la Tortuga".
