Draft Increase Possible Result



A draft bonus which may
permit the big super cargo
ships to carry thousands of
collars more cargo through the
Panama Canal, is now'.-being
worked out by the Marine
Division on a trial basis.
The p 1 an for increasing.
permissible draft on -the big
(anal customers would advance
the present maximum fresh
water draft of 36.5 feet to as
much as 38 feet for certain
snips during the period of the
year when the level of Gatun
Lake is 86 feet or more- above
sea level.
During the past few months
when the level of the lake aas
been at it, maximum, a number
of the big tankers and ore
carriers have been permitted
to make the:canal transit with
drafts as high as 37 feet.
Among thesQe vessels have

been the Ore Saturn and Ore
Meridian. both en route frnt.
Chile to Baltimore with iron
ore; the. Montecello Victory,
and the super tanker National
-Defender. the second largest
tanker to use the. ;anal.,
Depending on the way in
which che ships .,perform as
they go through the Canal the
type of construction and other
factors, the draft probably will"
be increased for tuture trips.
so long as the level of the take
remains at- 86 feet or more.
At present it is slightly higher
than 87 feet.
The increase in draft means
an increase in the amount of
cargo wnich the ship can carry
through the Canal. Depending
on the *ype of ship. this may
mean an increase of from 150
to 180 tons per inch.

Tinkering With Regulators

No Job For Amateurs

'Maine Maritime Academy cadets 'who' visited the Isthmus
aboard the State of 'Maine, the former Carvna ship, Ancon, were
among the thousands of Javier Fair-goers who stopped by the Pa-
nama Canal exhibit, where Canal Zone Guides Leila Leon and
'Sandra Wallace 'have been on duty this week. The State of Maine
Band participated in the Fair on opening night and the Neptones
Combo from the vessel played in the Canal exhibit. The Fair,
which started last Saturday, continues each evening through Sun-

STiinering with compressed gas
regulators is no job for a do-
it-yourself amateur. The re-
gulator shown here was taken
apart by a customer of the
Aceti-Oxygeno, S. A., gas plant.
When pressure was applied to
the regulator, flammable ma-
terial used by the ''repairman"
ignited, fire shot out the rear
of the regulator with great
force, and the hose was blown
off and blown apart.
That no one was injured was
mere good 'fortune.

Never lubricate valves, re-

Swim Sessions

Now Underway

Competitive swimming, ses-
sions now are being held. from
4 to 5 p.m. on Teusdays and
Thursday at the Balboa Swim-

holding green swimming pool
cards eligible to attend.
Idea of the workouts is that
it's easier to keep in shape
lian it is to get into shape.
It is not necessary to be an
expert swimmer to participate.
The 1963 swimming calendar
is shaping up, with the first
tig event to be the annual

Three-Team League

Seeks I

A three-team softball league
has been organized at the Canal
Zone Penitentiary at Gamboa,
under the revitalized Recrea-
tional Program for Inmates, di-
rected by Captain W. H. Mun-
yon, Warden. The league is su-
pervised by Lt. C. S. Smith and
Sgt. R E. Masters.
An All Star team has been sel-
ected to play teams from the
Canal Zone community and mi-
litary service units. Any team
inquiries are welcome, but
thtre is one stipulation-all Ca-
nal Zone Penitentiary games
are played at home.

tome Games

The three softball teams in the
league are the Commercials, the
Rebels and the Hawks.
In the first round of play. the
Commercials took two out of
three from the Rebels and the
Hawks to give them the big
jump toward the first place
In the final game of the first
round with the second place tro-
phy as lure, or perhaps a de-
termined bid to stay out of the
cellar, the Rebels played a firm
defense to stave off the last in-
ning surge of the almost dead
but still fluttering Hawks team.

With runners on second and
third and one out, a Hawk play-
er sent a hot drive close to the
bag at third hope rose quick-
ly as it appeared a sure double,
but conversation can be heard
as to how the fat but quick Cap-
tain of the Rebels made a back-
hand stab that resulted in a
double play putting both the
hope and the Hawks in the cel-
lar. The final score: Rebels 8,
Hawks 6.
The next rounds of play are
now under way with the Co-
mercials taking on the Rebels.

los egresados de Colegios o Universidades, que tuviesen
boletines 'o publicaciones de sus "Alma Mater",.se las

de consulta a los estudiantes que deseen escoger in Co-
legio o Universidad donde proseguir sus studios. *
Los boletines, folletos u otras publicaciones serin ex-
hibidas en el sal6n central de lecture para que quienes
lo deseen puedan examinarlas.
Se ruega a aquellas personas que deseen donar tales
publicaciones enviarlas a la Iiblioteca o dejarlas' aUi
cuando la visiten.

La Curvatura

de Un Puente

Hace algunas semanas el
SPILLWAY se refiri6 al puen-
te de Gamboa, calificandolo de
"sinuoso", debido a su cuxva
de 6 grades que provoca 5
vueltas distintas. La cr6nica no
seial6 conclusions, pero si al-
gunas opinions de veterans
Un amable lector, cuyo nom-
bre nos reservamos a solicitud
expresa suya, nos facility co-
pia de tesis sostenida por el
antiguo ingeniero del Canal,
R. C. Sheldon, en la Universi-
dad. de Ohio Northern en 1933,
a sabei':
El present puente a traves de
un brazo del Rio Chagres, en
el lago de Gamboa, fue el pri-
mero edificado "al seco", cru-
zando uinicamente el cio. Con-
siste en una armaz6n de 200
pies, conectada con 13 vigas de
80 pies. Una caracteristica
peculiar a este puente es su
alineamiento curvado. Esa cur-
vatura fue necesaria para lle-
gar a las cimicntos de las ba-
ses. Se hizo necesario constrtr
(esos cimicntos) sobre el ri
en sistema de enreiajl".
