,M" Employees
Five employees of the Panama Depart-
ment of Highways.and Terminals (CAM)
last month completed a 3-week course of
instruction on lubrication given by Philip
Green, Industrial Training Coordinator of
the Canal organization.
Mr. Green, who has given the course a
number of times, developed the idea for
the course and took a leave of absence from
his regular duties with the Canal organiza-
tion in order to provide the instruction in
a concentrated period of time.
Those from CAM who.paiicipated
were Jos6 D. Malo I., Chi0f Engineer of
the Equipment Divisi6n; George Duncan,
Shops Supe viso r CAM in David; Rail
De Le6n, .anhine Shop Supervisor for
CAM in Aguadulce; Cecilio Payne, Jr., and
Rafael Bolivar Ayala, Machine Shop
Supervisors for CAM in Panama City.
The CAM officials were joined in the
course by Roberto C, Beato, a Cuban
refugee and lubrication engineer with Shell
Oil Co. on the Isthmus, and George T.
Fitzgerald, Chief Engineer of the Canal
tug "John F. Wallace," who had been
unable to attend similar earlier courses
because of other assignments.
Carl E. Hall of the Canal's Maintenance
Division participated in the instruction

July REVIEW

Now on Sale
THE PANAMA CANAL REVIEW goes on
sale this weekend throughout the Canal
Zone, with a complete story on the new
Canal Zone Guide Service, the bilingual
"Point of Interest" and "Recreation Site"
signs which have gone up in the Zone, and
the new historical markers now being
erected at selected sites.
Part of the new services described in
the July REVIEW are eight automatic slide
projection machines which are being put
into operation on the Isthmus to tell the
Canal story. The first of the eight machines
was exhibited earlier this week at the
Balboa Heights Administration Building
before being installed at Tocumen Airport.
Another illustrated article in this month's
issue of THE PANAMA CANAL REVIEW
describes the training being received by
employees of the Panama Canal Company
and contractors working for it.
And not the least of the new develop-
ments in the Canal's information services
is the first issue of THE PANAMA CANAL
REVIEW En Espafiol. The July REVIEW
En Espafiol contains 16 pages and is to
be distributed on a complimentary basis
through numerous locations. In August,
THE REVIEW En Espaiiol will have the
full 24 pages of the parent publication and
will be sold for 5 cents a copy through
Panama Canal outlets.


TRAINING
(Continued from p. 1)
program by providing special instruction
on the lubrication of tractors and similar
pieces of heavy equipment. Kenneth
Thompson of the preventive maintenance
section of the Motor Transportation Divi-
sion also assisted in the discussion dealing
with lubrication and maintenance of
passenger cars and trucks.
All of those participating in the instruc-
tion were conducted on a tour of the Motor
Transportation Division maintenance oper-
ations by Mr. Thompson, who explained
the organization of the work and other
activities.
Those participating in the course met
4% hours each day for 15 days, Monday
through Friday, to complete the course.
The instruction started on May 28 and
ended on June 15, when those attending
were presented with participation certifi-
cates by J. Bartley Smith, Electrical Engi-
neer of the Canal organization and Chair-
man of the Industrial Training Committee.
Commenting on his experiences in con-
ducting the special course of instruction,
Mr. Green noted that none of. those par-
ticipating ever were late for the start of
the class at 7:30 a.m. each day, and no
one took time off to observe holidays during
the period. This was considered highly
indicative of the real interest of the
participants.


Savings Bond



You May Have

To Pay Duty


Vacationing Canal Zone residents head-
ing for the United States with a foreign
car were reminded this week that they
may have to pay some customs' duty on
the car.
Zonians returning to the United States
may take $100 worth of foreign purchases
into the country without payment of duty.
Each member of the family is entitled to
the same $100 exemption. Thus, a family
of five may take up to $500 worth of pur-
chases in duty-free. The appraised value
of foreign-made automobiles is chargeable
against the exemption.
Duty on foreign-made cars is charged at
8% percent of the 'appraised value. The
appraised value, generally, is approxi-
mately 50-60 percent of the sale value of
the vehicle. Thus, a new foreign-made car
costing $1,600 would have an appraised
value of approximately $800-$900 and duty
on it would be approximately $68 to $76.50.


How Come, Indeed!
A note which is signed, rather pointedly,
"The Original SPILLWAY Staff," in the July
issue of the mimeographed "Spillway"
issued for the past several years by the
Gatun Civic Council asks: "How come . .
the Public Information Office saw fit to
'lift' our name?" referring, of course, to
this publication.
Far be it from us to deny 'lifting" good
editorial ideas, whenever and wherever we
may find them. Editors of the best journals
do likewise and we are no exception. Our
first issue did have a "Recipe of the Week,"
a feature sometimes carried in the Gatun
Spillway. But we deny "lifting" the name
of this publication from the Gatun Civic
Council newssheet.
To paraphrase Genesis (see, we acknowl-
edge "lifting" our editorial approach), "In
the beginning the Panama Canal Informa-
tion Office created THE SPILLWAY and
published it."
The original SPILLWAY was issued in
October 1957. And we understand that the
Gatun Civil Council Spillway made its first
appearance under that name in January
1960, after having previously been called
the Gatun Civic Council News.
Seriously, we believe both publications
can operate under identical names without
detracting from the value of either. In
fact, we believe one complements the
other. We are fully aware of the valuable
service which the Gatun Spillwall has
provided to that community-and only
hope that this SPILLWAY can render as
great a service to the entire Canal Zone
community.


JULY 6, 1962


Program Opens
You will be given an opportunity this
month to buy U.S. Savings Bonds through
payroll deductions. All employees of the
Company/Government are eligible to par-
ticipate in the program, D. J. Paolucci,
Savings Bond Officer, has announced.
Approximately 3,755 Company/Govern-
ment employees presently are enrolled in
the program, investing more than $106,000
per month in bonds which earn 3% percent
interest, compounded semi-annually, when
held to maturity.
Each employee will receive detailed
information about the program and how
to enroll for payroll deduction purchases
of the bonds.


$400 Contributed to

Pan ma Red Cross
1 June fund-raising campaign of L
Crui Roja Panameia, the Panama Rei
Cross organization, was given a hefty boost
when the Canal Zone turned in nearly
$400 for sales of tickets to the premier
showing of "Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone."
The tickets were sold to Canal Zone
residents under the leadership of Mrs.
W. P. Leber, wife of the Lieutenant Gov-
ernor of the Canal Zone. Mrs. Leber is a
member of the Panama Gray Ladies and
volunteered to handle the sale and distribu-
tion of the tickets in the Canal Zone.
Purchasers included Gov. and Mrs. Robert
J. Fleming, Jr.
The premier, which officially opened the
1962 fund-raising campaign of the Panama
Red Cross, was held May 30 in the Central
Theater in Panama City.
In addition to her efforts on behalf of
the Panama Red Cross fund drive, Mrs.
Leber each month accompanies a membe-
of the Panama Red Cross on a visit to t:
residents of Bique, a fishing village ne..
Arraijan, where they distribute clothing,
household supplies, food and other items
donated for the purpose by residents of
the Canal Zone.
The fund-raising campaign will be closed
with a concert in the Bella Vista Salon of
the El Panama Hilton Hotel at 8:30 p.m.,
Sunday, July 8. It will star the German
cellist Ludwig Hoelscher, who will be
accompanied on the piano by Friedrich W.
Schnurr. Tickets for the concert are on sale
at Morrison's on Fourth of July Avenue,
at the FMlix B. Maduro stores on Central
Avenue and Tivoli Avenues, and at the
Panama Cultural Library.
The end of the fund-raising campaign
will not mark the end of the needs of La
Cruz Roja Nacional de PanamA, however.
The organization constantly is in need of
contributions which can be used to relieve
the needs of victims of natural disasters and
poverty. Anyone desiring to contribute for
such purposes can do so by contracting the
office of La Cruz Roja Nacional de Panama
at its office at 11-50 Calle 13, Panama City.

A ESCRITOR
Clois C. Duffie, el genial ingeniero de
refrigeraci6n que ticne la obligaci6n de
mantener las dependencias del Edificio de
Administraci6n, frias como el Polo Norte,
ha resultado ser, por paradoja, un fogoso
escritor. Lo decimos porque acaba de
vender un articulo a una revista norte-
americana de categoria.
"Caramba. .. .Yo no sabia que paga-
ban por eso," fue lo primero que coment6
Duffie cuando vio el cheque que le habian
enviado por el trabajo. "Siempre lo habia
hecho gratis."
El articulo, que es la historic de un viaje
de ida y vuelta a Guatemala realizado por
Duffle en motocicleta, aparecera en la edi-
ci6n de julio de la revista Cycle World

ingeniero de lubricaci6n, que trabaja con
la Shell Oil Co., en el Istmo, se uni6 a los
miembros de la CAM en el curso y George
T. Fitzgerald, ingeniero jefe del remol-
cador del Canal, "John F. Wallace," quien
no habia podido tomar ninguno de los
cursos anteriores, form parte tambi6n del
grupo que se entrenaba.
Carl E. Hall, perteneciente a la Divi-
si6n de Mantenimiento del Canal, parti-
cip6 en el program de instrucci6n, dando
classes especiales sobre lubricaci6n de
tractores y equipo pesado. Kenneth
Thompson, de la secci6n de mantenimiento
preventive de la Divisi6n de Transportes,
tambi6n form parte del cuerpo de ins-
'ructores, en lo que respect a la lubrica-
i6n y el mantenimiento de vehiculos de
-pasajeros y camiones.
Todos los participants tuvieron la opor-
tunidad de recorrer las dependencias de la
Division de Transporte y ver los sistemas
de mantenimiento, guiados por el senior
Thompson quien les explic6 la forma en
que esa division trabaja y otras actividades.
Para completar el curso, los participan-
tes recibieron instrucci6n 4% horas diarias,
durante 15 dias, de lunes a viernes. Las
classes comcnzaron el dia 28 de mayo y
terminaron el 15 de junio, cuando los con-
currentes recibieron sus certificados de
participaci6n, de manos de J. Bartley
Smith, Ingeniero Electricista de la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal y Presidente del Comit6
de Entrenamiento Industrial.
Comentando sobre sus experiencias en
la direcci6n de los cursos, el senior Green
hizo notar que ni uno solo de los partici-
pantes lleg6 tarde a las classes que comen-
zaban a las 7:30 de la maiiana todos los
dias. Ninguno de ellos se tom6 tampoco
un solo dia libre durante los cursos, lo cual
indica el alto grado de interns que los
participants mostraron en los cursos.

eQueR ue primero, la

gallina o el huevo?
La clasica pregunta: "(qu fue primero,
la gallina o el huevo? . ." parecia ser
el 16gico titulo de una aclaraci6n hecha
en este mismo n6mero por la Redacci6n
en Ingles, como consecuencia de una glosa
aparecida en la publicaci6n tocaya de
THE SPILLWAY, que edita mimeografiada
la Junta Civica de Gatdn. Dicha glosa
sefialaba que THE SPILLWAY que pu-
blicamos le habia plagiado el nombre.
El "Spillway" (que en espafiol significa
"vertedero") de Gatin, apareci6 por pri-
mera vez en enero de 1960-despuBs de
haber sido llamado, por much tiempo,
"Noticias de la Junta Civica de Gajin"-y
tal como lo explican los colegas en ingl6s,
el original THE SPILLWAY que precedi6
al que ustedes leen en estos moments,
apareci6 por primera vez, en forma expe-
rimental, en octubre de 1957. Falta de
fondos decret6 su silencio.
Como se ve, a pesar de que THE SPILL-
WAY toma con much gusto algunas ideas
editoriales de su colega y tocayo de Gatin,
no le ha copiado en verdad, el nombre. Por
el contrario, ha sido una feliz coincidencia
lo ocurrido y por supuesto, ambas publi-
caciones seguirin apareciendo con el
mismo nombre y cooperando entire si-como
lo han hecho siempre-para el beneficio
de la comunidad.
