Postal Workers

To See Raises in

July 29 Checks
Canal Zone Postal Group em-
ployees received salary increases
ranging from $8 to $642 per year,
effective July 7. The average in-
crease was $250 a year.
One hundred two full-time em-
ployees and twenty-two part-time
employees will receive the monetary
increase in their July 29 paychecks.
The increase is the result of the
adoption of a new United States
Postal Service (USPS) evaluation
and pay plan for the employees of
the Canal Zone Postal Group.
Traditionally, Postal Group pay
rates had been tied to those of the
United States Post Office Depart-
ment which was replaced by the
USPS. The local adoption of the
USPS pay and evaluation plan con-
tinues the Postal Group's relation-
ship to the postal system in the
United States.

Copper sulphate in crystal form is applied manually to Oil and Debris Branch which is in charge of weed
vegetation by an employee of the Dredging Division's control in Canal waters.

Dredging Div. Helps Gatun Villagers

By Clearing Away Aquatic Weeds

Weeds, those unwanted plants
that have plagued man since he first
attempted to cultivate the soil, also
are a nuisance in the Panama Canal.
Aquatic weeds became a problem
soon after the opening of the water-
way and their significance in affect-
ing navigation has increased with
the years. Uncontrolled, they are a
serious threat to navigation. Getting
rid of them is expensive and time
To prevent the drastic con-
sequences of uncontrolled weeds,
the Oil and Debris Branch of the
Dredging Division employs a crew
of 40 men who are constantly spray-
ing and applying tons of chemicals
to the vegetation that could choke
the Canal and threaten numerous
isolated villages around Gatun Lake.
Controlling weeds also eliminates
breeding areas of disease-carrying
insects and other pests.
Villagers Are Assisted
At the request of the villagers in
the Gatun Lake area, Dredging Di-
vision crews have been treating
aquatic weeds in that area twice a
year for the past 4 years. A recent
5-day mission took them to Escobal,
located on the Panama-Canal Zone
border about 9 miles from Gatun,
which served as a base of opera-
tions. From there, the crews treated
weeds along the villages of Lagar-
terita, La Arenosa, Ciricito, Vino
Tinto and Cuipo. A total of 20,000
pounds of copper sulphate was
applied to the vegetation by the
broadcast method, that is, it was
spread manually on the weeds by
men in pangas.
Killing off weeds in these areas
is imperative to the villagers who
must utilize water to transport their
supplies and to take their children
back and forth to school in small
boats. Weeds also constitute a dan-
gerous annoyance to swimmers who
may easily become entangled in
Groups of Aquatic Weeds
Aquatic weeds in the Canal Zone
can be divided into four major
groups: Hydrilla is a submerged
plant rooting at the bottom that
may grow in water depths of more
than 30 feet. Water lettuce, a free
floating plant that resembles the
edible plant, is most common in the

Chagres River and areas east and
west of the Canal channel. Because
of its shape, water lettuce serves as
a haven for mosquitoes. The most
significant weed throughout Canal
waters, especially in the Chagres
River, is the floating water hyacinth,
the pretty, bright green, shiny
leaved plant bearing, white, blue,
or violet flowers. The hyacinth,
whose reproductive capacity is
great, becomes a stubborn invader
when left unchecked. Various types
of ferns found floating on water or
growing in mud also are a nuisance.
The propagation and growth of
these weeds have increased greatly
in recent years. This is evident in
the tremendous increase in the
amount of chemicals used to con-
trol them, which has risen from
80,000 pounds in 1964 to 450,000
pounds in 1974.

Debris Control Section
Why such a great increase in
weeds? One reason noted is the ex-
pansion of boating activities in
Canal waters. Unknowingly, pleas-
ure boaters stimulate growth of
water vegetation when they go
through a weed patch, cutting the
vegetation that sinks into the water
and reproduces.
How are weeds controlled? In
the old days, arsenic was used. But
arsenic killed everything. Today,
the Debris Control Section, under
the command of biologist C6sar Von
Chong, controls weeds manually,
mechanically and chemically or
by using a combination of these
In the manual method, weeds are
pulled out by hand or when found
floating, they are picked up with

First Man Is Appointed

To Women's Council

William H. M. Brunner has been
appointed to the Women's Advisory
Council to the Governor. He is the
council's first male member.
Brunner, an engineer assigned to
the Engineering and Construction
Bureau, will replace his wife, San-
dra, a member of the original coun-
cil, who has resigned.
Also appointed was Mrs. Marcia
G. Semans, who will represent mil-
itary dependents on the council.
Mrs. Semans, an instructor of Eng-
lish at Balboa High School, is the
wife of Maj. Michael Semans,
The council, an important chan-
nel of communication between the
women and the top management of
the Canal organization, represents
a cross-section of the work force
with a membership composed of
U.S. and non-U.S. citizens, residents
of the Atlantic and Pacific commu-
nities and, now, men and women.
In a letter advising Brunner of
his appointment, Bruce Quinn, Spe-
cial Assistant to the Governor-Pres-
ident for Equal Opportunity, wrote,
"I know your efforts will be dedi-
cated to serving and improving the
role of women in Government and

in society, and to fairly represent
the views of an enlightened society."
In another development in the
expanding Equal Opportunity Pro-
gram, Thomas J. Ender, Supervi-
sory Procurement Agent, Procure-
ment Division, Supply and Commu-
nity Service Bureau, and Joseph C.
Quintas, Transportation Officer, Wa-
ter Transportation Division, Trans-
portation and Terminals Bureau,
have been named EEO Counselors
for the Panama Canal Company's
New Orleans Office.

Modern Charge

Account System

To Be Installed
The Panama Canal organization
will put a modern, automated
charge account system into effect on
October 1.
Under the new system, Panama
Canal employees will continue to
use their Unlimited Purchase Au-
thority IP cards to make charge pur-
chases. They are not required to
complete charge applications which
are being mailed to other cus-
The new applications are in-
tended for non-Panama Canal in-
dividuals and organizations who
currently hold retail store and
storehouse charge account cards, or
who pay charges for rent, utilities
and telephone.
When these completed applica-
tions are returned, existing records
will be updated and non-Panama
Canal individuals and organizations
will be assigned a customer number
and issued a new credit card. -
If employees of the Panama Canal
organization receive a charge appli-
cation blank, they should return it
in the envelope provided explaining
that they are employed by Panama
Canal. However, active duty mil-
itary personnel assigned to the Pan-
ama Canal organization who receive
an application blank should com-
plete and return it.
Details about the new charge sys-
tem will be published in the SPILL-
WAY in September.

Maryann Duffy and Willie Nowotny, Straight Scene teen counselors, ex-
pand their school year program to include the Schools Division summer
recreation program. A group of young students gathered at the Ancon
Elementary School to see a movie and graphic demonstrations of the
dangers of smoking. Squeezing a cotton-filled plastic bottle with a cigarette
in the top, Willie simulates inhaling a cigarette, and a look at the cotton
shows what remains on the lungs after smoking one cigarette.

pitchforks and loaded on to pangas
and taken to dump areas along the
Mechanically, they are removed
by a Sourman Cableway, a per-
manently installed machine in the
Chagres River, about 1,000 meters
above the Gamboa Bridge on the
east bank of the Chagres River. The
machine works like a crane with a
bucket on a cable, scooping up
weeds from the water and dump-
ing them on land to decompose.
The Grounds Maintenance Branch,
which now uses this material for
mulching, is currently conducting
experiments to ascertain its value to
improve the condition of the soil.
A manual-mechanical method of
weed control employs a cable boat
with a winch. The boat is moved
from area to area and weeds are
collected by booming them around
the boat or close to it, where men
with pitchforks fill the basket man-
ually, and the winchman operating
the winch dumps the debris on land.
After several years of trials, it
was determined that two chemicals,
2-4D herbicide and copper sulphate,
are the most successful controllers.
The 2-4D herbicide is most effec-
tive for the control of water hya-
cinths and water lettuce. This is
applied to the weed plots in liquid
form 2 to 4 pounds per acre, by a
sprayer who stands in a panga and
uses a John Beam pump. One or
two crews are kept busy spraying
5 days a week during dry season
when weed population is at its peak
because light stimulates growth.
Also there is no rain to wash off the
Copper sulphate, which proved
to be the most effective on hydrilla,
is applied in crystal form. Dissemin-
ated on the water area, it dissolves
and sinks onto the submerged
weeds, killing them on contact.
At problem areas such as the
Chagres River, Mandinga River,
and Carabali River, on the west
bank of the Canal, weeds are con-
trolled by placing booms at the
areas where the rivers feed into the
Canal. The booms act as barriers
but heavy tropical rains often wash
the vegetation over the booms and
into the Canal. Crews are kept busy
at these strategic areas, clearing
away debris that is washed down
from the rivers.
It is estimated that without the
unceasing efforts of these men,
armed with pitchforks and sprayers,
the Panama Canal would be closed
to navigation in from 3 to 5 years.

"Top Brass"

A "Top Brass" Program is the
latest innovation in the Personnel
Bureau's efforts to bring the newest
theories in management develop-
ment to all managerial levels.

Taking advantage of the gather-
ing of the Canal organization's top
executives at the Governor's weekly
staff meeting, Stanley J. Wiechert,
Chief of Training and Management
Development, discusses the latest
human behavioral studies, motiva-
tional research, and communication
The Middle Management Pro-
gram is expected to be an important
part of the discussions since a better
understanding of what their em-
ployees are learning will allow top
supervisors to provide the necessary
bridge from the classroom to the
office or shop that will assist sub-
ordinate managers to better utilize
newly acquired knowledge and
The "Top Brass" program also
will assist top management per-

Local Engineers

Twelve engineers of the Panama
Canal's Engineering and Construe-
tion Bureau were among the group
of Isthmnian engineers who recently
attended a seminar on power plan-
ning and power systems relaying
held at the Training Center.
The seminars were sponsored by
the Panama Section of the Institute
of Electrical and Electronic Engi-
neers in conjunction with IRHE, the
Institute of Hydraulic Resources
and Electrification, and the Panama
Canal organization.
Dr. A. Mayer Sasson and Dr. Jor-
ge F. Dopazo of the American Elec-
tric Power Service Corp. of New
York City and Mario Conzzilez, sen-
ior engineer of the Florida Power &
Light Co. conducted the seminar,
designed to present U.S. technology
to engineers in foreign countries.

"A 'Fiddler on the Roof,' sounds crazy, no?"
It may sound crazy, but "Fiddler on the Roof," a story of the
people of Anatevka is more charming and real than crazy. The
play centers around an engaging dairyman named Tevye, his
wife, Golde, and his five daughters.
It is also the poignant story of the trials, tribulations and the
final tragedy that befalls Anatevka in the prerevolution period
of early 20th century Russia.

The 11th United Way production began a second decade
of summer theatre excellence last night when "Fiddler on
the Roof" played to a sellout audience at the Balboa High
School Auditorium. Directed by Bruce Quinn, this warm and
funny musical will be presented to the public through August 3.
The box office is open daily from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. Reserva-
tions may be made by calling 52-5576 or 52-6576. Curtain time
is 8 p.m. nightly.


A chastized Tevye explains to an angry Golde that he is late because his
horse has been invited to the blacksmith for the Sabbath.
Tevye, muy atribulado, explica a la furiosa Golde que llego tarde porque
el hcrrero invited a su caballo a la celebraci6n del Sdbado.

Vital Labor Para el Canal

Es el Control de Malezas

Las malezas, esa vegetaci6n que
ha preocupado al hombre desde
que intent por primera vez culti-
var la tierra, es tambi6n una moles-
tia en el Canal de Panama.
La vegetaci6n acu;itica surgi6
como un problema desde que se
abri6 la via acuAtica y el peligro de
que ella afecte la navegaci6n por el
Canal ha aumentado con el correr
de los anos. Dejar que prolifere se-
ria fatal para la navegaci6n. Lo
contrario es uma tarea sumamente
costosa y dificil de cumplir.
Para evitar las consecuencias per-
judiciales del crecimiento incontro-
lado de las malezas, el Ramo con-
tra la Contaminaci6n por Petr6leo y
Desechos de la Divisi6n de Draga-
do cuenta con un personal de 40
empleados que constantemente rie-
gan y aplican toneladas de agents
La incontrolada vegetaci6n acua-
tica no s6lo afectaria el Canal, sino
que causaria perjuicios a las nume-
rosas comunidades distantes unas de
otras, que hay en los alrededores
del Lago Gat6n. Esas comunidades
son habitadas en su gran mayoria
por agricultores panameiios. El
control de las malezas acuAticas
tambi6n impide la proliferaci6n de
insects transmisores de enfermeda-
des y de otras plagas.
A solicitud de los residents del
Area del Lago Gatlin, cuadrillas de
la Division de Dragado han estado
tratando con agents quimicos las
plagas acuAticas dos veces al afio en
los iltimos 4 afios. En misi6n de
5 dias de duraci6n, recientemente
una cuadrilla se estacion6 en Esco-
bal, para tratar la vegetaci6n acui-
tica pr6xima a las comunidades de
Lagarterita, La Arenosa, Ciricito
Vino Tinto y Cuipo. MAs de 20.000
libras de sulfato de cobre fueron
regadas en esa operaci6n por hom-
bres que operaban en botes.
La eliminaci6n de las malezas
acuAticas constitute aspect vital
para los residents de esas comuni-
dades, quienes deben navegar por
las aguas del Lago Gatin para traer
sus alimentos y para transportar a

gunos nuevos pasos de merengue,
antes de su viaje a Santo Domingo,
que estA programado para el mier-
coles 24 de julio.
Liliana es hija de Ricardo Brin,
Gerente de la Shell en Panam y vla
Sra. Maria Isabel Icaza de Brin.
Vivi6 un afio en Inglaterra, mientras
su papa trabajaba para la Shell en
Londres. Durante su permanencia
en Europa, cuando apenas contaba
10 afios de edad, aprovech6 para co-

sus hijos escolares en pequefias em-
barcaciones. La maleza tambien
constitute un peligro para los bafiis-
tas, que pueden quedar aprisiona-
dos entire la vegetaci6n acuAtica.
La maleza acuAtica existent en
la Zona del Canal puede dividirse
en cuatro classes:
Hydrilla, que es una plant con
raices que se extienden hacia el
fondo y que pueden alcanzar pro-
fundidades hasta de 30 pies.
Nenfifar blanca, plant flotante
libre que se asemeja a la lechuga,
la cual se observa mis en las aguas
del Rio Chagres y en las orillas
oriental y occidental del Canal. De-
bido a su forma, el nenifar sirve
como lugar ideal para la reproduc-
ci6n de los mosquitos.
De las malezas, la mis difundida
en el Canal es el jacinto, una her-
mosa plant de grandes hojas que
da flores blancas, azules o de color
violeta. El jacinto acuatico, cuya
capacidad de reproducci6n es con-
siderable, se convierte en una plaga
tenaz cuando no se le control
Otras classes de plants, princi-
palmente de la familiar de los hele-
chos, que proliferan en el agua o en
pantanos, tambi6n constituyen una
La propagaci6n de estas malezas
acuiticas ha incrementado conside-
rablemente en los iltimos afios. Ello
se refleja en la creciente cantidad de
agents quimicos que ha sido nece-
sario emplear para controlarlas. En
efecto, en 1964 se utilizaron 80.000
libras de sustancias quimicas y para
1974 se calcula que seran necesa-
rias unas 450.000 libras.
Pero, a (qu6 se debe ese aumento
en las malezas que afectan el Canal?
Una de las principles causes es ]a
expansion de las actividades de na-
vegaci6n en aguas del Canal. Sin
darse cuenta, los aficionados a la
navegaci6n y la pesca diseminan la
vegetaci6n y con ello contribuyen
a su proliferaci6n.
Antafio se usaba ars6nico para
controlar las malezas. Pero esta sus-
tancia mata de todo. Hoy dia, la

cia y otros paises. "Fue una gran
experiencia", dice al referirse a
aquel viaje. Tambi6n conoce Costa
Rica y Puerto Rico.
Entre los pasatiempos suyos, Li-
liana menciona la misica y el baile,
el esqui acuitico y la ballesteria.

ta Maria gan6 en una ocasi6n una

Ramo de Control contra la Contaminaci6n por Petr6- en el Rio Chagres.

Secci6n de Control de Desechos, a
cargo del bi6logo Cesar Von Chong,
ejerce este control por m6todos ma-
nuales, mecanicos y quimicos, o.
bien empleando una combinaci6n
de algunos de esos m6todos.
En el metodo manual, las male-
zas son extraidas con la mano o
usando trinchantes y son echadas
en pangas, en donde se Ilevan hasta
las Areas especiales para desechos.
MecAnicamente, se usa un siste-
ma de Cable especial (Sourman), el
cual esti conectado a un motor.
EstA instalado en el Rio Chagres,
aproximadamente a 1.000 metros
rio arriba, del Puente de Gamboa,
en la orilla occidental del rio. La
miquina trabaja como una grua con
una rastra operada por el cable, que
recoge la maleza del agua y la de-
posita en tierra firme. El Ramo de
Mantenimiento de Predios usa la
maleza para regarla sobre predios
en un experiment que dirige para
establecer su utilidad como abono.
Un m6todo combinado manual y
mecanico emplea un bote de ca-

bles, con un cabrestante. El bote se
mueve de un lugar a otro y las ma-
lezas son recogidas manualmente o
usando trinchantes, luego de ser
arrastradas hasta la embarcaci6n.
Usando el cabrestante, se deposit
la maleza en tierra firme.
Despues de various afios de expe-
rimentos, se ha establecido que los
mis efectivos agents quimicos son
el herbicida 2-4D y el sulfato de
cobre. El 2-4D es mes efectivo para
el control del jacinto acuAtico y el
nendfar. Se aplica en forma liquid
a esta clase de vegetaci6n, a raz6n
de 4 libras por acre. Durante la es-
taci6n seca, uno o dos empleados
irrigan constantemente 5 dias a la
semana, ya que en esta 6poca la pro-
liferaci6n de las malezas se encuen-
tra en su punto mis alto, pues la
luz contribute a su desarrollo. Se
aprovecha esta 6poca en virtud de
que la incidencia de lluvias que di-
luyen el efecto de los agents qui-
micos es minima.
El sulfato de cobre, que ha pro-
bado ser mas efectivo en el trata-

miento de la Hydrilla, se aplica en
su forma cristalina. Al diseminarse
en el agua, se disuelve y ataca la
maleza sumergida, destruy6ndola al
En las Areas problema, tales como
los rios Chagres, Mandinga y Ca-
rabali, en la orilla occidental del
Canal, la maleza es controlada colo-
cando retenes en los puntos en don-
de los rios desembocan en la via
interoceAnica. Los retenes actian
como barreras, pero las intensas llu-
vias tropicales a menudo permiten
el paso de la maleza al Canal. Cua-
drillas se mantienen constantemen-
te ocupadas en estos puntos estrat6-
gicos, limpiando los desechos que
son arrastrados hasta el cauce de la
via acuatica.
Se calcula que sin el esfuerzo sos-
tenido de este equipo human y
mecanico, el Canal de PanamA ten-
dria que ser cerrado a la navegaci6n
y que se requeririan entonces de
3 a 5 afios para que vuelva a cum-
plir su papel de servir al mundo.
