Strong armed Enrique Ulett, a
linehandler at Miraflores Locks,
received a cash award and a hand-
some trophy for winning the annual
line throwing contest held recently
at Gatun Locks.
Lt. Gov. Richard L. Hunt pre-
sented Ulett with the trophy and
Capt. Robert D. Valentine pre-
sented the cash prize on behalf of
the Panama Canal Pilots Asso-
Second place in the contest went
to Esteban Caiiizales, Pedro Mi-
guel Locks boatman, and third
place was won by last year's
winner, Evaristo Mina, a line-
handler employed at Pedro Miguel
Locks. Lawrence Barca, Jr., Chief
of the Locks Division, presented
trophies and cash prizes to the
second and third place winners.
Judges for the contest were J. T.
Styles, Operations Supervisor, Ga-
tun Locks; D. Kiley, Operations
Supervisor, Miraflores Locks; and
A. O'Donnell, Operations Super-
visor, Pedro Miguel Locks. Serving
as line judge was J. M. Barnes,
Facilities Maintenance General
Foreman, Gatun Locks.
Open to all linehandlers, boat-
men and helpers regularly em-
ployed with the Locks Division,
the annual event provides an op-
portunity for good natured com-
petition between employees of the
three sets of locks. It also points
up the importance of the skills

used by these men in the overall
job of moving ships through the
Canal quickly and efficiently.
The winner of the contest is se-
lected on the basis of points ac-
cumulated in three separate events
designed to judge competitors'
ability in throwing a weighted
125-foot V4 inch manila heaving
line for horizontal distance, height
and accuracy. The winner of each
segment of the contest gets 3
points, the runner up gets 2 and
the third place finisher gets 1 point.

Recent Retiree Makes

Long Awaited Cruise

Newly-retired Canal employee
John Boswell shoved off from Cris-
tobal last week for a long awaited
cruise to the United States in a
42-foot trimaran he devoted more
than 4 years to build.
Boswell, who closed out a 34-
year career in January as main-
tenance general foreman at Mira-
flores Locks, will return to the
Isthmus not long after reaching
the United States. His wife pre-
sently works in the Motor Trans-
portation Division and when she
retires they plan to sail their
Manureva II (flying bird in Tahi-
tian) up the Intercoastal Waterway
in the United States.
A well experienced sailor, Bos-
well departed Panama with an
Ecuadorian couple, who also have
spent considerable time on blue
water, heading for Duck Key,
about 90 miles south of Miami.
They have scheduled stops at San
Andres and Providencia Islands
and at Cozumel, Mexico.

The three hulls of the Manu-
reva II are constructed of poly-
propylene cloth sandwiching a
foam core, re-enforced at highest
stress areas with fiberglass. The
interior of the hulls, floor and
sides, are carpeted; ceilings are of
acoustic tile; and decks are finished
in plywood. The cabin house is
finished with mahogany masonite
formica. The vessel also features
two double bunks and two singles,
a shower with a tile floor and a
pressure water system. It has a
:35 hp diesel engine and carries
585 square feet of sail.
Previously, Boswell had owned
several monohulled vessels, one a
40-foot yawl. He spent 4% years
to complete the "new" boat, work-
ing weekends and after hours.
Boswell estimates that he did 80
percent of the work on the vessel,
which was launched in August
1973. Since then, the Boswells
have made a number of short
cruises to the Perlas Islands and
other areas close to home.

More Than 60 Years of Service to World Commerce


PC Career
most of his life on the Atlantic
side of the Isthmus. A second gen-
eration resident of the Canal Zone,
he attended Canal Zone schools
and after graduating from Cris-
tobal High School he went to
Texas University at Austin.
A dedicated railroad man since
he was first employed in 1939 as
a clerk in the Cristobal Yard Office,
Brayton has been the "life and
breath" of the Panama Railroad.
Accordingly, in the Presidential
Award he was cited for his "dy-
namic leadership as manager of
the Panama Railroad, in moving
the railroad from a condition of
financial and operational crisis to
a safe, successful and reliable
means of transportation," Brayton
also was presented an Outstanding
Performance Award in recognition
of his work in putting the railroad
on a sound operating and financial
basis while improving the line's
safety standards.
Brayton served as train collector,
station agent, conductor, yard.
master, supervisory railroad trans-
portation specialist and acting
manager before he was named
manager in 1962.
In addition to his tireless efforts
directed toward the welfare of the
railroad over the many years,
Brayton also has taken an active
interest in his community. He was
instrumental in the reorganization
of the Boy Scouts on the Atlantic
side and taught catechism to stu-
dents at Cristobal Junior-Senior
High School for several years. He
was on the Cristobal-Margarita
Civic Council, active in the Twi-
light Baseball League, on the
board of directors of the Canal
Zone Chapter of the American
Red Cross, the United Way, the
Canal Zone Credit Union and the
Brazos Brook Golf Club.
Brayton and his wife, Gladys,
whom he says deserves "all the
credit" for his achievements be-
cause she was raising the children
while he was "railroading," will
be coming back to the Isthmus to
visit their many friends and son,
Rodman, who is with the Police
Division. They will be seeing their
son, Jack, who is in the Army and
soon to be stationed temporarily
at Fort Ord, Calif.

Gorgas Eye Clinic

Changes System of

Making Appointments
The Gorgas Hospital Eye Clinic
has rearranged its method of
making appointments to see an
ophthalmologist to provide better
service and reduce waiting times
for appointments.
Anyone referred to the Eye
Clinic or needing an appointment
to see an ophthalmologist should
call the ENT Clinic at 7:30 a.m.
Appointments will be made for
2 weeks from the date of the call.
If no more appointments are avail-
able for 2 weeks from the date of
the call, the caller will be re-
quested to call again at 7:30 a.m.
on the following workday. The
telephone number to use for ap-
pointments is 52-3871.
No change is being made in the
manner of making appointments to
see an optometrist.

As the oldest of the seven Lau
sisters, Nory naturally was a "little
mother" to the younger siblings as
they were growing up in Colon.
She helped her mother to feed,
bathe, amuse and otherwise take
care of her sisters and in the pro-
cess was often accused by them as
being "bossy." They were a happy
close-knit family of girls despite
the usual sister arguments and
petty quarrels. Today, the Lau
girls are grown but they still go to
Nory for advise and guidance in
some matters.
Marisol, the youngest, is 12, and
Arlene and Georgiana (who was
named for George Washington be-
cause she was born on his birth-
day) are in high school, Flora and
Fulvia work in Colon, Anayansi is
married and living in Germany
with her husband, a U.S. Army
captain, and Nory, who became
Mrs. Fred Sapp 4 years ago, is
secretary to the General Manager,
Terminals Division at Cristobal.

CZC Announces

Registration for

Summer Classes
The 1976 smnmer session class
schedule has been distributed by
Canal Zone College and the regis-
tration period for summer classes
will be held during the period of
June 7-18. Classes for the summer
term will begin on June 21 and
end on August 13.
The fall semester class schedule
is now being duplicated and will
be ready for distribution soon.
Registration for the fall semester
will be conducted during the pe-
riod of June 28-August 13, and
the fall semester of the college will
begin on Monday, August 16. An
early semester plan has been ap-
proved for the Canal Zone Col-
lege this year so the first semester
final examinations will end before
the Christmas holidays. This was
done to accommodate an increas-
ing number of the students who
complete degree requirements and
are ready to transfer to United
States colleges and universities at
mid-year. Most United States insti-
tutions of higher education now
begin their winter quarter or
winter semester in the first week
of January.
Prospective students interested
in enrolling in either the summer
session or the fall semester should
confer with the Registrar, Norman
Altenberg, or one of the College
Counselors, Margaret Gately or
David Baglien, concerning admis-
sions and registration procedures.
Copies of the summer schedule
can be requested by mail by call-
ing the college office, 52-:3304,
52-7509, or 52-3107.

Employees of the Transportation and Terminals Bureau, Southern
District, are shown wiithi Burneau Director Charles R. Clark, center standl-

ing nurse understood "Nory" when
her birth was registered at the
hospital, received her early school-
ing-from kindergarten to fourth
grade-at the Colegio Paulino and
then transferred to St. Mary's
Academy, where she completed
high school. She attended Canal
Zone College 2 semesters, study-
ing secretarial courses.
Her Panama Canal career began
about 10 years ago when she was
employed as a student assistant at
the Supply and Procurement Unit
oi Coco Solo Hospital. At the end
of the program, she went to work
as a trainee (clerk steno) with the
Terminals Division in the Check-
ing Section and then moved to the
Property Section of the same divi-
s!on. Next she was promoted to
clerk stenographer and then to the
secretarial position she has held
the past 1W years.
Her duties include the handling
of incoming and outgoing corre-
spondence involving operations
on the piers, cargo, and with
the steamship agents representing

vessels calling at the Canal.
Though the nature of her work
may seem routine, the endless va-
riety of activities in pier operations
and the conglomeration of goods
moving through the area make
her job she says, "something to
look forward to each day."
Nory enjoys tennis and swim-
ming but her favorite pastime is
dancing. When the seven girls
were all at home, at least one was
taking ballet lessons and it was big
sister Nory who took her to the
class. At 18, she decided to take
classes herself. And since then she
has participated in ballet perform-
ances and has continued to attend
classes now conducted by Ileana
de Sola at the Cristobal YMCA,
mainly, she says, for exercise.
She also is fond of flying with
her husband, Fred, a stevedoring
operations foreman at the Ter-
minals Division, who owns a share
in an airplane. They have made
trips to Santiago, David, Costa
Rica, Portobelo and to the San
Bias Islands.

"Bell Telephone Hour" 1962

Brigantine MS "Explorer" becomes the first participant in the Bi-
centennial's Operation Sail '76 to transit the Panama Canal. The 186-
footer made the transit just hours before the schooner "Chief Aptakisic,"
the Canal Zone's representative in Operation Sail '76.

Brigantine Transits Canal

En Route to Bicentennial

The brigantine MS Explorer,
recently became the first of several
,,i,,. ships to transit the Panama
Canal en route to Bermuda to par-
ticipate in the United States Bi-
centennial's Operation Sail '76.
Just hours later the schooner Chief
Aptakisic, the Canal Zone's repre-
sentative in Operation Sail '76,
made the northbound transit.
As the State of Washington's
official flag ship for the Bicenten-
nial celebrations, the 186-foot
Explorer has had a proud role in
American history, especially on the
west coast of the United States.
Built in 1904 on the east coast for
the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Sur-
vey Department, she went around
the "Horn" in 1905 and berthed
in Lake Union, Seattle, where her
history began. Explorer charted the
waters of Puget Sound; surveyed
the coast of Alaska, the Bering
Sea, the Hawaiian Islands and the
Mariana Islands, until 1937, when
she was decommissioned. Explorer
also served in both World wars.
Built to operate in the Bering
Sea, Explorer has an icebreaker
hull and because of her hull con-
struction, she weathered the years
and outlived other vessels of her
own era. Over the years, after her
(o\ ernment service ended, she
\was torn down and stripped to a
In 1963, she was purchased by
I)r. (:layton Janecky, who is the
master of Explorer, and in 1968
\\as donated to the MS Explorer
Maritime Sailing Foundation which,
through private funding and cit-
izen participation, was in charge
of the restoration project. From
1968 to 1974, people from all parts
of the country joined Dr. Janecky
in the reconstruction effort. Naval
architects, marine engineers, ship-
wrights, boat builders, old era sail-
ing captains and seamen, diesel
engineers and marine electricians,
all volunteered their skills and
services to solve the many prob-
lems in restoring Explorer to a
turn of the century sailing vessel.
On October 29, 1975, the re-
stored Explorer left her homeport,
Tacoma, Wash., and began her

departure from Puget Sound, on
her way to the east coast and the
Bicentennial celebrations. Stopping
off at ports along the way, the
vessel was opened to tours and
visited by hundreds of schoolchil-
dren and townspeople. At Neah
Bay, on the northern most tip of
the Olympic Peninsula, the Makah
Indian tribe arranged moorage for
the vessel and entertained the cap-
tain and crew of 20, including
three women. On December 21,
Explorer left Neah Bay for San
Francisco but extremely heavy
s;cas, high southeast winds and sleet
caused her to turn back to the bay
three times. Finally, with the help
of the Coast Guard, she was off
and on her way. She left San
Diego March 19 and stopped in
Costa Rica before arriving at the
A number of other sailing ships
are expected to arrive at the Canal
on their wvay to Bermuda to par-
ticipate in Operation Sail '76.
Among these are the brigantines
Eswmeralda from Chile and Nippon
from Japan, Perseus and Prince
Louis, schooners from California
and Topaz, a gaff schooner from
New Zealand.

Owners of Pets

Have To Comply

With Leash Law

Canal Zone Police have reported
a recent rise in the number of
complaints concerning pets running
free during the morning and even-
ing hours. As a result, the assistant
poundmaster's working hours have
been adjusted to permit around
the clock enforcement of the Canal
Zone leash law.
More than 800 animals have
been impounded since the law be-
came effective January 17, 1975.
Pet owners are asked to review the
regulation, part of which is printed
below, and are reminded that cats
and dogs 4 months old or older
must be registered annually and
vaccinated against rabies. Dogs
are vaccinated every 3 years but
must have a new license every
year; cats are vaccinated every
year and must have a new license
tag every year also.
� 157.8 Control of animals; sei-
zure and impoundment.
(a) It is unlawful for any owner
or custodian to allow a dog or
wild animal kept as a pet to run
at large in the Canal Zone. An
animal is deemed to be running
at large when it is not under posi-
tive control. For the purposes of
the regulation, a dog or wild ani-
mal kept as a pet is under posi-
tive control only when it is:
(1) Directly under command of
a competent person by voice or
other signal; or
(2) On a leash of suitable
strength held by a person compe-
tently managing the animal; or
(3) Effectively confined in a
house, fenced area, cage, closed
vehicle, shipping container, or
otherwise; or
(4) Under other effective re-
(b) Female dogs and cats shall
be confined in the owner's or cus-
todian's quarters or in a supervised
kennel while in heat.
(c) The poundmaster or assistant
poundmaster shall cause to be
seized and impounded all dogs,
cats, or wild animals kept as pets
that are:
(1) Untagged (if dogs or cats)
that appear to be over four months
(2) Obviously abandoned;
(3) In such a poor state of
health as to be a menace to public
safety; or
(4) Not under positive control as
required by this section.

Here Are Tips

On How To Get

News Into Print

Following are some guidelines
to be used by club publicity chair-
men and others who, from time to
time, are interested in having ar-
ticles or photos published in the
SPILLWAY and other publications
on the Isthmus.
Following the guidelines does not
guarantee that the articles will be
printed but will greatly improve
the chances of their being pub-
lished. The pressure of deadlines
does not allow editors sufficient
time to devote to researching in-
formation on non-essential items
that should be provided by the
persons submitting the articles.
1. Get the facts by answering as
many of these questions as possible:
Who? What? Where? When? Why?
How? How much?
2. Use white paper, 81" x 11",
if possible. Write on one side of
the page.
3. If possible, use a typewriter.
4. Always double space.
5. Begin your story about one
fourth the way down the first page.
(Editor needs room for headline
and printing instructions.)
6. Write short paragraphs.
7. Always get names; use first
and last names; spell them cor-
rectly. Use formal titles.
8. Write important facts first.
9. Keep it in good taste.
10. Include your name.
11. Meet the deadline.
12. Submit black and white
photos only.
13. Use both upper and lower
case letters; do not use all capitals.

Government Employees Reminded

OF Responsibilities, Conduct

Employees of the U.S. Govern-
ment are reminded that they are
required to maintain certain stand-
ards of conduct prescribed by
Executive Order 11222 issued in
1965. Regulations governing the
conduct of employees of the Pan-
ama Canal organization, which are
entitled "Employee Responsibili-
ties and Conduct," are published
in Title 35 of the Code of Federal
Regulations, Chapter I, Subpart
B, Part 255.
The regulations prescribe stand-
ards of employee conduct and re-
sponsibility and set forth actions
which are prohibited for employ-
ees of the Company-Government.
These restrictions prohibit an
employee from any action which
might result or appear to result in
using public office for private gain;
giving any person preferential
treatment; impeding Government
efficiency or economy; losing com-
plete independence or impartiality;
making a Government decision
outside official channels; or ad-
versely affecting the confidence of
the public in the Government.

The regulations cover such sub-
jects as gifts, entertainment, and
favors; outside employment and
other activity; financial interests;
use of Government property; mis-
use of information; indebtedness;
gambling; betting and lotteries;
general conduct prejudicial to the
Government; publication of ar-
ticles and public statements; and
participation in Panamanian poli-
tical activities. Also listed in the
regulations are miscellaneous sta-
tutory provisions which govern the
conduct of Government employees
and the ethical and other conduct
and responsibilities of special Gov-
ernment employees.
The regulations also require
some management officials to sub-
mit statements of employment and
financial interests to ensure that
employees do not become involved
in a conflict of interest situation.
Each employee required to submit
such a statement receives from the
Personnel Director forms and spe-
cific instructions on how to meet
the filing requirements.

El bergantin MS "Explorer" es el primer participate en la Operaci6n
Vela '16 del Bicentenario que transit el Canal de Panami. El bergantin
de 57 metros, hizo el trinsito pocas horas antes de que lo hiciera la
goleta "Chief Aptakisic", que represent a la Zona del Canal en
Operaci6n Vela '76.

Bergantin Cruza el Canal

En Viaje al Bicentenario

El bergantin MS Explorer es el
primero de various barcos de vela
que transitarin el Canal de Pana-
ma en direcci6n a las Bermudas
para participar en la Operaci6n
Vela '76 del Bicentenario. Apenas
unas horas despu6s que transitara
el MS Explorer, la goleta Chief
Aptakisic, que representara a la
Zona del Canal en la Operaci6n
Vela '76, hizo el trAnsito en direc-
ci6n al norte.
Como barco official del Estado
de Washington para la celebra-
ci6n del Bicentenario, el Explorer,
de 57 metros, ha tenido un papel
active en la historic americana,
especialmente en la costa oeste de
los Estados Unidos. Fue construido
en 1904 en la costa este para el
Departamento de Estudios de Cos-
ta y Geodesia de los Estados Uni-
dos. Le dio la vuelta al Cabo en
1905 y atrac6 en el Lago Uni6n,
Seattle, donde se inici6 su histo-
ria. El Explorer naveg6 las aguas
de Puget Sound; inspeccion6 la
costa de Alaska, el Mar Bering,
las Islas de Hawai y las Marianas
hasta 1937 cuando fue retirado de
servicio. El Explorer tambi6n sir-
vi6 en ambas guerras mundiales.
Construido para navegar en el
Mar Bering, el Explorer tiene un
casco rompehielo y debido a dicho
tipo de construcci6n ha podido re-
sistir los ainos y sobrcvivir a otros
hlarcos de su 6poca. Al transcurrir
los ailos, luego de haber terminado
su servicio con el Gobierno, fue
demolido y reducido a barcaza.
En 1963 fue comprado por el
Dr. Clayton Janecky, su actual ca-
pitin, quien en 1968 lo don6 a la
Fundaci6n Maritima MS Explorer,
la cual, con fondos privados y la
participaci6n de ciudadanos, em-
prendid el proyecto de restaura-
ci6n. De 1968 a 1974, personas de
todas parties del pais se unieron al
Dr. Janecky en la reconstrucci6n.
Arquitectos navales, ingenieros de
marina, constructors de buques,
capitanes, mariners de la vieja
escuela, e ingenieros de diesel y
electricistas marines, todos volun-
tariamente ofrecieron sus servicios
y conocimientos para resolver los
muchos problems que surgieron
en la restauraci6n del Explorer y
para convertirlo en un bergantin
como los de principios de siglo.
El 29 de octubre de 1975, el

Explorer, ya restaurado, zarp6 del
puerto de Tacoma, Washington, e
inici6 su viaje desde Puget Sound
a la costa este de los Estados Uni-
dos, a fin de participar en las cele-
braciones del Bicentenario. Hizo
escala en varies puertos donde
cientos de nifios de escuela y gente
de los pueblos lo visitaron. En la
Eahia Neah, en la parte mAs sep-
tentrional de la Peninsula Olimpi-
ca, la tribu indigena Makah hizo
los arreglos para su amarraje y
festej6 al capitAn y a su tripula-
ci6n de 20, que include 3 muje-
res. El 21 de diciembre, el Ex-
plorer abandon la Bahia en direc-
ci6n a San Francisco, pero debido
el mar bravo, vientos del sureste
y cellisca, tuvo que regresar tres
veces. Finalmente, con la ayuda
del Servicio de Guardacostas, zar-
p6 sin problems. Parti6 de San
Diego el 19 de marzo y par6 en
Costa Rica antes de llegar al
Se espera que Ileguen al Canal
otros navios de vela que incluyen
los bergantines Esmeralda de Chile
y Nippon del Jap6n, Perseus y
Prince Louis, goletas de California,
y Topaz, una goleta de vela can-
greja de Nueva Zelandia.
