Locks Overhaul Work Resumed

CHAMBiERS IN THE EAST LANE of Miraflores Locks were
drained lakt weekend, 'nd the temporarily delayed overhaul work
was resumed, with workers swarming through the empty lock
climbers. In the photo above, Roy Stockham, Chief of the Locks
Division look own into the vast cavern of one of the empty
chambers, surveying a scene which may not be repeated soon if
efforts to establish the "24-hour outage" plan are successful. Some
of the work being done on the present overhaul is designed to be
utilized in the new overhaul plan. In the picture at right, workmen

Ship Traffic Hits

Five-Year Low

The number of oceangoing
commercial ships using the Pan-
ama Canal during the month of
January dropped to 769, the
lowest it has been in nearly
five years. It was the lowest
level of traffic since Sept. 1958.
The decline in traffic during
January was the direct result of
the dock strike which tied up
hundreds of ships at United
States East Coast an d Gulf
ports for several weeks. The de-
cline was reflected mainly in
the number of ships travelling
southbound through the Canal.
Tolls and cargo figures show-
ed a corresponding slump, with
tolls on commercial vessels to-
talling $3,872,855, and tonnage

Monday morning to catch some of the many fish trapped in the declining water supply in the low-
