from two 11,000-kilowatt gas
turbine generating units now
being installed at Miraflores

by supplemental oil burners
when waste, heat from the two

The generator is scheduled, for
installation by March 1965.
The two units now being

A conductor on the Panama Railroad since
June 1932, Clarence B. Mcllvaine will make
his last runs March 8, and has his retirement
plans all made. He joined the Canal organiza-
tion July 1, 1930, spent 3 months in commissary
work, then switched to the Railroad Division,
spending 11/2-years as a collector before taking
his long-time job.
Upon retirement, he'll heid for Austin,
Texas. He and his wife, Anna Grace, drove
there last spring and bought a home. Reports
of the rugged roads between here and Austin,
held no fears for them. The only trouble they
had was a tire valve replacement.
Mr. Mcllvaine has nd idea how'many miles-
he's traveled on duty, but does recall that for
a four-year stretch during World War II, al-
though on a "main line" run, he never went
beyond Gamboa.
He and his wife live in Diablo Heights.
They have a son and two daughters, all marri-
ed, and 12 grandchildren. A 30-year Elks Lodge
member, Mcllvaine enjoys fishing and hunting,
carries an expert rating with a pistol, is a rock
and mineral hound and a collector of muzzle-
loading rifles. He has a .44 caliber Remington
cap,.and ball pistol probably 'carried in the
Civil War. The first ,muzzle-loader he bought
cost him $2. They're now selling for around $100.

Lock Master Oliver Hendrickson, who has been
with the Canal since 1945 and the Pacific Locks since
1946, is pictured in the center wall culvert of Mi.
raflores Locks inspecting one of the cylindrical
-Valves after it was cleaned, new rubber seals instal.-
led, and a protective coating applied to it.

A machinist by trade, Hendrickson was one of
several locks employees sent to the United States
in 1961 to make a study of hydraulics at the Vickers'
& Co. factory in Detroit, Mich. The locks employees
were assigned to the study in connection with
hydraulics systems built for Vickers which are being
used on. the new Canal towing locomotives.

A native of Michigan, he first was employed as
:a i.achinist with the former Mechanical Division in
Cristobal. He and his family live at. 630-A, Balboa

SUnder the heading "Gente en
Ih Noticia" in the Spanish section
you will find pictures of three
other men employed on the Mira-
flores Locks overhaul job and
a fourth man who recently retired
elsewhere in the Spanish section
there is a picture and story about
after spending many years
around Madden Dami and lake.

The picture might indicate that
Antonio Castro was trying to look
like a World War I soldier during
a poison gas attack. Actually, the
mask he's wearing as he crawls
from below one of the huge
-rlindrical valves in the locks is

fumes which emanate from a
protective coating applied to
certain parts of the machinery.
(And that valve, incidentally, is
securely blocked in place.)
George William Rowe is one of
a number of workmen employed.
in applying a protective coating
to valves and other sections of
the lock mechanisms. And L. A. -
de Los Rios isn't trying to climb
the wall of the center wall
culvert, but is just scraping off a
few of the millions of mussels
which make the wall their home
until knocked loose and removed
during overhauls.

As for Anselmo Jimenez, his
knowledge of Madden Dam and
its environs has been a valuable
asset to the Meteorological and
Hydrographic Branch of the Ca-
nal organization for most of the
33 years nad-9 month he's been.
employed. He worked on the dam
construction, then helped build
flood warning and rainfall
stations in the watershed, and
recently assisted in construction
of the new telemetering stations.-
He was honored by fellow Met
and Hyd workers with a farewell
retirement party at Madden Dam
on January 25.

1.-Uno de. los riesgos principa-
pales al hacer trabajos de
excavaci6n es la presencia
de cables el6ctricos o tu-
berias subterr-neas.
2.-Si esas tuberias o cables
son quebrados, se puede in-
terrumpir el servicio y pro-
ducir demoras que son cos-
Stosas, tambidn se puede
producer ]a electrocu:aci4n
de los operarios quie hacen
-]a excavaci6n.
3.-Antes de iniciar la excava-
cidn en un lugar que ofrez-
ca dudas. se debe consulter
con el Ingeniero de la FA-
brica o con el Jefe de la
secci6n respective.
4.-Cuando excaven zanias de
mis de 1.20 m. de profun-
didad, se debe uti:izar una
escalera para bajar o salir
de la zanja. La escalera
debe sobresalir de la super-
ficie del suelo por lo me-
nos 1 m.
5.-La tierra amontonada en la
parte superior de' la zanja
debe estar por lo menos a
45 cm. del borde de 6sta,

para evitar que caiga otra
vez en'la zanja.
6.-Los trabajos de excavaci6n
en lugares-adyacentes a las
zapatas de las columns o
cimientos de una pared de-
ben ser realizados por per-
sonas con experiencia en
esta clase de trabajos y que
tengan un comp!leo conoci-
miento del terreno.
7.-Siempre que hagan trabajos
de excavaci6n en lugares
donde la tierra es muy
suelta y se levanta jnucho
polvo, los operarios deben
user anteojos y respirado-
res contra el polvo.
8.-Siempre que se hagan tra-
bajos de excavaci4n se de-
ben poner barreras para
evitar que alguna persona
caiga en su interior. En la
noche se debe poorer una
,linterna roja colocada sobre
la barrera.
9.-Cuando los operarios que
realizan excavaciones ten-
gan que transporter mate-
riales Asperos y con bordes
cortantes deben usar guan-
