The Panama Canal Spillway

Vol. XIV, No. 18 Friday, October 31, 1975

On Panama's Independence Day

Governor Parfitt Sends

Zone's Congratulations

Canal Zone Gov. H. R. Parfitt
opened the Canal Zone's observa-
tion of the 72d anniversary of the
independence of the Republic of
Panama this morning by extending
congratulations on behalf of Canal
Zone residents to their neighbors
and friends in Panama.
In a personal letter, the Gov-
ernor sent his cordial congratula-
tions and best wishes to President
of Panama Demetrio B. Lakas for
the happiness and welfare of the
President and his countrymen on
the anniversary of the Nation's
Canal Zone residents will begin
the holiday weekend with a full
day of binational sports activities
on Saturday, November 1.
Swimmers from Panama and the
Canal Zone will compete in the
Isthmian Novice Swim Meet be-
ginning at the Balboa Swimming
Pool at 9 a.m.
The Paraiso High School Ath-
letic Field will be the scene of a
soccer game at 10 a.m. with the
Paraiso team playing a team from
Colegio Javier.

Liberal Leave Policy
Announced for Nov. 4
In recognition of Panamanian
culture and the contribution of
Panamanian employees to the
Canal organization, Gov. H. R.
Parfitt has announced a liberal
leave policy for November 4, Pan-
ama's Flag Day.
Employees whose services can
be spared on that day may be
excused from their regular work
activities with the usual charge to
annual leave.

Deadline Today

For Registration

Of Dogs, Cats
Canal Zone pet owners who have
not registered their dogs and cats
yet should do so before the close
of business today.
By November 1, all pets should

cense tags. The annual vaccina-
tion process includes inoculation
against rabies in addition to a new
tag. All Canal Zone residents who
own, keep or have custody of a
dog or a cat that is 4 months old
or older must have it innoculated
against rabies.
Dogs are vaccinated every 3
years but must have a new li-
cense every year. Cats are vac-
cinated every year and must have
a new license tag every year also.
The vaccination, license and tag
cost $5 for Canal employees and
for pet owners living on military
Pet owners may take their dogs
and cats to the Corozal Animal
Clinic without an appointment
from 8 a.m. to 12 noon today.
Those who prefer the afternoon
must make an appointment by call-
ing 52-3457. Atlantic siders should
call Cristobal 1912 to make ap-
pointment at the Mindi Animal

Most readers probably have no-
ticed a gradual change in the ap-
pearance of SPILLWAY, particularly
this issue.
Under a new policy, some photos
are now being used in both Eng-
lish and Spanish sections and an
increasing number of articles are
appearing in both portions.
Beginning next week, the Eng-
lish and Spanish will be almost
exactly the same, including photos,
articles and layout. An exception
will be television schedules for
channels 2 and 4, which will be
printed in the Spanish section
while the SCN-TV channel 8 and
the Panama Canal movie schedules
will be run in the English section,
as in the past.
The change in the SPILLWAY
format, which is being carried out
on a trial basis, is intended to cut
costs. In addition, on several oc-
casions, Civic Council members
have recommended that the SPILL-


Goes Over

Its CFC Goal
Contributions to the Combined
Federal Campaign continued a
steady climb through the 21st day
of the annual drive.
During the past week, the Office
of the Financial Vice President,
became the seventh Panama Canal
bureau to exceed its goal and the
remaining two bureaus, Health
and Transportation and Terminals,
had passed the 98 percent mark.
Reports from non-Panama Canal
agency contributions showed that
Southern Command has gone over
the top with 101.2 percent. Stand-
ings of the six other outside agen-
cies were: Federal Highway Ad-
ministration, 176.6 percent; Navy,
89.7 per cent; Air Force, 72.7 per-
cent; Smithsonian Institute, 51.8
percent; District Courts, 41.7 per-
cent; and Army 34.5 percent.
A total of $319,367 had been
.contributed as of press time by
civilian and military personnel of
all Federal agencies on the Isth-
mus. This represented 83 percent
of the overall 1976 campaign goal
of $384,600.

WAY be the same in English and
Spanish. This view also was ex-
pressed by Peter J. Pestillo in his
1974 report to the Deputy Under
Secretary of the Army which dealt
with personnel policies of the Pan-
ama Canal organization.
A drawback of the change,
however, will be a decrease in the
number of subjects covered in
each issue. As a result, heavy em-
phasis will be placed on using
articles and photos of general in-
terest. Many items which in the
past would have been published in
the SPILLWAY will now be re-
leased to the news media in Pan-

Special Prices on Plants
Each week from November 2
through 29, six different varieties
of plants will be sold at special
prices at Summit Gardens, Diablo
Heights and Mount Hope.

Fearsome cutting head of dredge "Mindi" is inspected by workman.

Help Kiddies Enjoy Canal To Ga
A ^ f I I Elf

A Sbae Halloween
Today is Halloween and most
Canal Zone youngsters will be out
"trick or treating" this evening.
The Pacific Civic Council recom-
mends that each Canal Zone res-
ident help prevent injury to small
children and annoyance to himself
by following these three sugges-
Allow their children to "trick or
treat" only between 5:30 and
7 p.m.
Distribute treats to children of
elementary school age only.
Do not distribute treat to any-
one after 7 p.m. and tell "trick
or treaters" that that part of the
Halloween celebration is over.
Extra police surveillance is
planned for tonight and residents
should report acts of vandalism or
other abuses by calling the Balboa
Police Station, 52-7862.

By Selective
A program of "selective dredg-
ing" now underway in Gaillard
Cut and Gatun Lake will result in
the deepening of the Canal 1 foot
by next March.
This will be the first part of a
three-phase project to lower the
navigable bottom of the Canal by
a total of 3 feet by 1979, from the
current PLD (Precise Level Datum)
40 to PLD 37. The deepening
work, being carried out by the
Dredging Division, will achieve
both immediate and long-range
Beginning with the next dry
season, the lower Canal bottom
will allow the Canal organization
to use the extra' foot of water to
generate relatively cheap hydro-
electric power instead of the ex-
pensive gas-turbine electricity nor-
mally generated to meet dry season
power needs.
Predictions of ever-increasing
fuel prices make the sizeable eco-
nomic benefits of particular impor-
tance in view of austerity measures
which the Canal organization must
implement. It is estimated that
generation of this additional hydro-
electric power will save the Pan-
ama Canal Company $319,000 in
fuel bills next year.
The level of Canal ship traffic
has slumped in recent months due
to various changed conditions in-
cluding the worldwide recession
and the opening of the Suez Canal.
But in future years, traffic is ex-
pected to climb again to new
heights that will press the Canal
capacity to its limits. Deepening
will provide more water for lock-
ages to increase the waterway's
capacity. Moreover, the slackening
in traffic provides an ideal time to
carry out dredging operations,
lessening delays and navigational
problems to transiting ships.
Approximately 2 million cubic
yards of material must be removed
to lower the navigable bottom



from PLD 40 to PLD 37, and an
additional 2 million cubic yards
of spoil are removed per year just
to maintain the current bottom ele-
vation where ships pass. These
maintenance quantities will in-
crease as time passes because of
erosion caused by the trend to
larger vessels and the increased
siltation resulting from the growth
of agricultural and urban develop-
ment on the lake watershed.
The additional foot will also aid
the Meteorological and Hydro-
graphic Branch by providing a
measure of flexibility in the com-
plex job of effectively managing
the Canal Zone water resources
with one eye on flood control and
the other on assuring sufficient
water for ship transits.
The dredging will be handled
by the U.S. Mindi, a 28-inch dia-
meter pipeline suction dredge cap-
able of moving 1,200 cubic yards
of earth per hour, and the U.S.
Cascadas, which has a 13-cubic
yard power shovel-type bucket
which can move 500 cubic yards
per hour. The clamshell dredge
Goliath will also help as will the
drillboat Thor the latter for blast-
ing rocky bottoms so they can be
dug by the dipper or clamshell
dredges. Areas to be dredged in-
clude Paraiso, Cucaracha, Culebra,
Las Cascadas, and Bas Obispo
Reaches; Chagres River crossing;
Gamboa Reach; Mamei Curve;
San Pablo Reach; Tavernilla and
Bohio Reaches. The material taken
from the waterway will be dumped
in designated spoil areas in Gatun
All dredging schedules are being
closely coordinated with Marine
Traffic Control to minimize inter-
ference with transiting vessels.
To take full advantage of the
economic benefits of using hydro-
electric power generation, the lake
level will go down during the dry

Solo Ninos


Pastillas Hoy
Hoy, es Dia de Brujas (Hallo-
ween), y muchos de los j6venes
de la Zona del Canal estardn
"trick or treating" (expresi6n que
usan los nifios para indicarle a la
persona que o da pastillas o po-
drA ser objeto de alguna travesu-
ra), en la tarde de esta fecha.
El Consejo Civico del sector
Pacifico recomienda que cada re-
sidente de la Zona del Canal ayu-
de para evitar accidents a los ni-
fios y con ello se evite molestias
a si mismo siguiendo las siguientes
Permita a los nifios salir a reco-
ger pastillas y otras golosinas sola-
mente entire las 5:30 p.m. y 7 p.m.
Distribuya golosinas unicamente
a los ninos de edad primaria.
No distribuya golosinas a los ni-
fios despu6s de las 7 p.m. Digale
a los niios que Ileguen despu6s de
esa hora que la celebraci6n del Dia
de Brujas ha tenninado.
Se le ha notificado a la Policia
de la Zona del Canal para que
est6 alerta. Cualquier acto de van-
dalismo que ocurra esta noche de-
berA ser notificado por los resi-
dentes a la policia. Las victims
de abuses o de actos de vandalis-
mo deberAn llamar a la Policia de
Balboa al tel6fono 52-7862.

Este cambio en el format del
SPILLWAY, que se esta poniendo a
prueba, se estA haciendo con la
idea de recortar gastos. Ademas,
en varias ocasiones miembros de
los Consejos Civicos han recomen-
dado que el SPILLWAY sea lo mis-
mo en ingl6s que en espanol. Lo
mismo fue expresado por Peter J.
Pestillo en el informed que rindi6
en 1974 al Subsecretario Adjunto
del Ejircito, y que tenia que ver
con normas de personal de la em-
presa del Canal de Panama.
Sin embargo, una desventaja en
el cambio sera que aparecerin
menos articulos en cada edici6n.
Como resultado, se hara 6nfasis
en el uso de articulos y fotogra-
fias de interns general. Muchos
articulos y fotografias que en el
pasado eran publicados en el
SPILLWAY ahora serAn enviados a
los medios de informaci6n en Pa-

Un empleado de la Divisi6n de Dragado inspecciona la cuchilla de la
draga "Mindi". El mecanismo penetra al fondo del Canal y pulveriza
dep6sitos que luego son succionados y arrojados por las tuberias de la
"Mindi" a gran distancia, en la tarea de mantener la adecuada profun-
didad en las aguas del Canal.

El Canal Tendra

Mayor Profundidad

Un program selectiveo de dra-
gado" en el Corte Gaillard y el
Lago Gatin, que permitira adicio-
nar 1 pie de profundidad al Canal
el pr6ximo mes de marzo estA ac-
tualmente en ejecuci6n.
Esta es la primera etapa de un
proyecto de tres fases orientado a
incrementar la profundidad nave-
gable del Canal por un total de
3 pies para 1979. El Dato Preciso
de Nivelaci6n (PLD) de 40 ac-
tualmente, pasarA a ser de 37. Los
trabajos desarrollados por la Di-
visi6n de Dragado deberAn alcan-
zar objetivos tanto innediatos como
a largo plazo.
A partir de la pr6xima tempo-
rada seca, la profundidad adicio-
nal del Canal permitira a la em-
presa del Canal emplear el pie
adicional de agua para general
energia hidroelectrica, much mAs
barata que la electricidad produ-
cida por las costosas turbines de
gas que normalmente abastecen las
necesidades energ6ticas durante la
temporada seca.
Los pron6sticos de crecientes
alzas en los precious del combus-
tible tornan los beneficios econ6-
micos de particular importancia en
virtud de las medidas de austeri-
dad que debe implementar la em-
presa del Canal. Se calcula que
esta energia hidroelectrica adicio-
nal ahorrari a la empresa del
Canal de PanamA $319,000 en
concept de combustible el anio
El volume del trAnsito de bar-
cos por el Canal ha descendido en
los l6timos meses debido a las di-
versas circunstancias que se han
producido en el mundo, y que in-
cluyen la recesi6n mundial y la
apertura del Canal de Suez. Pero
en los pr6ximos afios se espera que
el trafico de barcos suba nueva-
mente a niveles tales que presio-
naran contra la capacidad mAxima
de la via acuAtica. La operaci6n
de incrementar la profundidad
permitirin contar con mAs agua
utilizable en las esclusas, que in-

crementarA la capacidad de la via
intermaritima. MAs axin, la dismi-
nuci6n en el trifico ofrece las con-
diciones ideales para ejecutar las
operaciones de dragado disminu-
yendo las demoras y otros proble-
mas de navegaci6n de los barcos
que cruzan el Canal.
Aproximadamente 2 millones de
yards cfbicas de material serA
extraido del fondo del Canal, para
aumentar la profundidad de la via
acuatica del actual PLD de 40
hasta PLD 37. Este volume de
material que se excavarA es adi-
cional a los 2 millones de yards
cibicas excavadas todos los afios
para mantener la actual profundi-
dad del Canal por el trayecto que
siguen las embarcaciones. Estos
volumenes aumentarAn a media
que transcurra el tiempo, en vir-
tud del efecto de la erosi6n cau-
sada por la tendencia al uso de
las grandes embarcaciones y las
sedimentaciones resultantes del in-
cremento operado en el desarrollo
agricola y urbanistico en los alre-
dedores del lago.
El pie adicional de profundidad
permitira al Ramo de Hidrologia
y Meteorologia un grado de flexi-
bilidad en la compleja tarea de
mantener un control de los recur-
sos de agua en la Zona del Canal,
poniendo un ojo en el control de
la precipitaci6n pluvial y el otro
en asegurar el suficiente abasteci-
miento de agua para el trfnsito
de los barcos.
La labor de dragado serA reali-
zada por las dragas Mindli, Casca-
das y Goliath, y la barcaza de tala-
dros Thor. La Mindi es una draga
a succi6n provista de una extensa
tuberia de 28 pulgadas de dimne-
tro. Esta draga tiene capacidad
para extraer 1,200 yards c6bicas
de tierra por hora. La Cascadas
es una draga de cuchar6n que tie-
ne una pala con capacidad para
13 yards clibicas de tierra, lo que
le permit extraer 500 yards cti-
bicas de material del fondo por

Julio Alberto Cisneros E., ayudan-
te-tarifa de pasajeros, en la Oficina
del Ramo de Transporte de la Di-
visi6n de Servicio Administrativo
de la empresa del Canal de Pana-
mA. Alli se desempefia en la pre-
paraci6n de los viajes de los em-
pleados norteamericanos que via-
jan a los Estados Unidos. "Debo
tener un amplio conocimiento de
las tarifas de transport por tie-
rra, mar y aire", afirma. Depen-
diendo del viaje que desea hacer
el interesado, hay que tener cono-
cimiento de las tarifas areas, tari-
fas promocionales y de las tarifas
mis econ6micas y ventajosas para
el empleado, explica. "Ademas es
necesario tener un conocimiento de
las regulaciones Federales que de-
terminan los beneficios de los em-
pleados y quidnes tienen el dere-
cho a este tipo de beneficio". Con
frecuencia tiene que viajar al sec-
tor AtlAntico, en donde suele aten-
der a los empleados norteamerica-
nos que viajarAn a los Estados Uni-
dos. "Las experiencias adquiridas
en la Pan Am en Tocumen me han
servido de mucho, subraya Cisne-
ros. Nacido en Anc6n, Cisneros
hizo sus studios secundarios en el
Colegio San Vicente de Pa1l en la
ciudad de PanamA. Posteriormen-
te, hizo various afios de studios en
la Escuela de Comercio de la Uni-

En mayo de 1974 recibi6 un cer-
tificado y el correspondiente pre-
mio en efectivo de la empresa del
Canal por desempefio sobresalien-

adquiri6 en la Cerveceria Nacio-
nal de Panama donde trabai6 des-
de Mayo de 1964 hasta Abril de

Hay que Estar

Preparado Para

Las Contingencias
Es una premisa aceptada que la
nejor forma de prepararse para
una emergencia es a travys de una
emergencia. Pero, equ6 pasaria si
por una falla del plan se pusicra
en peligro la vida de los trabaja-
dores y la propiedad de la empre-
sa? La respuesta puede ser orga-
nizar simulacros de emergencia
para demostrar la efectividad de
los planes.
Antes de que se produzca una
emergencia, es convenient saber
que el personal estA adecuadamen-
te adiestrado y que el plan es co-
rrecto. Suele ocurrir que despuls
de un caso de emergencia, muchos
de los protagonists ilesos, o al
menos salvados de la muerte, lance
la expresi6n "si hubieramos estado
preparados . . ."
Es responsabilidad de todos los
miembros de una empresa, velar
porque se tomen todas las medi-
das conducentes a lograr un 6pti-
no de segiridad frente a cual-
q(uier contingencia. Las hay desde
incendios y explosions, amcnazas
de bombas, terremotos, contamina-
cion con materials radiactivos,
hasta inundaciones, accidents ae-

Exhibici6n de Karate

Hav Manana en YMCA

"Cuando se habla de karate, lo
primero que uno piensa es en una
persona rompiendo una tabla o un
ladrillo", dice Adolfo Ennever, ins-
tructor de karate del YMCA de
Balboa. "En realidad es much
mns que esto", agrega Ennever. El
karate es y siempre ha sido, un
m6todo de defense propia; nunca
como tecnica de agresi6n. Para el
estudiante de karate, es una forma
de discipline mental y fisica.
Para el expert karateca, el con-
trol propio es tan important como
el aprendizaje de las t6cnicas. El
karateca jams usa lo que ha
aprendido contra alguien, al me-
nos que sea su uiltimo recurso.

Un 'Relleno'
Lo que usted esta leyendo es lo
que se conoce en la terminologia
periodistica como "relleno". Y esta
precisamente en este lugar, porque
aqui habia un "hueco" que debia
ser rellenado.
Seguramente ousted no disfrutarA
esto, pues no es mas que espacio
relleno con literature. Pero nos he-
mos visto obligados a apelar a este
metodo, pues la mayoria de los
lectores se niegan a ofrecemos ma-
terial interesante para ser ofreci-
do a los lectores. En consecuencia,
el personal de redacci6n no sabe
de qu6 escribir o, peor aun, de qu6
no escribir.
dPor qu6 no se decide a colabo-
rar ofreciendo material de interns?
iPor qu6 no le describe a esta re-
dacci6n diciendo qu6 le gustaria
leer, o qu6 le agradaria saber? En-
tonces, estos "rellenos" sin sentido
no ocuparian espacios como este,
ni su precioso tiempo.

Algunos Consejos

Sore Jubilaciones

He aqui algimas interrogantes
que suelen hacerse los empleados,
generalmente cuando est~n on vias
de acogerse a la jubdlaci6n, y las
respectivas respuestas:
8Cu~ndo debo comenzar a pro-
gramar mi jubilaci6n?
Debido a la gran variedad y na-
turaleza de las cosas qlue deben
ser consideradas al programar la
jubilaci6n, no hay una norma ge-
neral que so pueda aplicar al res-
pecto a todos los individuos. Como
regla sostenida por muchos exper-
tos en el campo de las prejubila-
ciones, ]a planificaci6n de este im-
portante paso debe comenzar por
lo menos 5 afios antes de qune sea
eligible para la jubilaci6n.
8Qu6 aspects deberia tomar on
consideraci~n al planificar mi jubi-
Entre otras cosas, deberia con-
siderar los recursos potenciales do
ingresos despu~s de jubilarse; cuA-
les ser~n sus necesidades financie-
r~as despu~s de jubilarse; d6nde

rA el tiempo libre qlue le qluedani
8136nde poch-6 obtener informa-
ci6n para planificar mi jubilaci6n?
Infom-iaci6n o ayuda en mate-
ria de jubilaci6n so puede obtener
en una variedad do fuentes. En-
tre otras, usted podria verificar
con la oficina de personal sobre los
servicios de pre jubilaci6n quo
estin en capacidad de ofrecer;
agrupaciones locales de jubilados,
sobre los servicios qlue ofrecen; es-
cuelas secundarias y universidades
en su sector sobre los curses quee
ofrecen, y a las bibliotecas loca-
les sobre las publicaciones que
tengan al respect.
Estoy actualmente empleado en
una posici6n cubierta. por el Sis-
tenia de jubilacicin del Servicio
Civil, y presto servicios en el Ej6r-
cito durante la 11 Guerra Mun-
dial. No recibo pensi6n como ju-
bilado del servicio military. jPuedo
recibir cr6dito por el servicio mi-
litar prestado, para los prop6sitos
de jubilarme del servicio civil?
Si usted fue dado de alta en
formna honrosa del servicio mili-
tar (por ejernplo: el Ej6rcito, la
Armada, la Marina, la Fuerza
Ai~rea) recibin'i el reconocimiento
por todo el period qlue dur6 en
servicio active. Cualquier tiempo
perdido (por ejemplo en AWOL,
Confinamiento, etc.) no0 se acre-
ditan para prop6sitos de jubilaci6n.
8Debo hacer un dep6sito para
obtener cr~dito complete por ser-
vicio milit-ar?
No. Se otorga complete recono-
cimiento por servicio military siii

Fiondo de jubilaci6n.
(P s~D~CI~ IU9ffixq;%

8Podria lograr qlue se me acre-
dite el periodo de servicio military
para el seguro social en lugar de
para la jubilaci6n?
No. De conformidad con la ley,
el servicio military prestado antes
de enero de 1957 se acredita al
Sistema de Jubilacihn del Servicio
Civil. Se otorga cr~dito para se~i-
ro social por servicio military pres-
tado antes del 19 de enero de 1957

para ser pensionado por seiv�icio
Si muriera antes de jubilarme,
8podria elegir mi cbnyuge para
que se me acredite el servicio mi-
litar en el plan de jubilaci6n del
servicio civil o en el seguro social?
Si. Con respect al servicio mili-
tar prestado antes del 19 de encro
de 1957, el cbnyuge tiene tal de-
recho. Si elige qlue se acredite el
serv�icio military dentro del seguro
social, el ccinyuge no podri recibir
la pensi6n como sobreviviente de
conformidad con el Sisterna de ju-
bilaci~n del Servicio Civil. Si en
cambio elige emplear el servicio
military para la jubilaci6n del ser-
vicio civil, puede ser clegib~le para
recibir beneficios del se~guro social
si tiene a su bab~er un empleo con
suficiente cobertura. No ob~stante,
no se le dardi crkdito per servicio
military al computarse el monto del
beneficio de seguridad social.
P6ngase en comunicaci6n con el
funcionario administ-rativo de su
oficina para obtener informaci6n
especifica sob~re el reconocimiento
de serviicio en otras dependencias
militares aparte de las cuatro prin-
cipales (Ej~rcito, Armada, Marina
y Fuerza A~rea) o del servicio
ofrecido hasta o despu~s del IQ de
enero de 1957, y al recibo de pen-
sicin por servicio military.
8Podria un empleado enviar co-
pias de su historical de servicio y
de sus salaries a la �Comisi~n de
Servicio Civil para obtener un c6m-
puto est-imado de la pensi6n que
le corresponderA cuando se jubile?
No. La responsabilidad de pro-
porcionar cbmputos anticipados an-
tes de la. separacicin del servicio
corresponde a la oficina de perso-
nal de la agencia. El empleado
