Cana ICapacity

Tests Cut Time

In Zone Waters

I One of the Panama Canal's two
lock-entrance caissons is in dry-
dock in Balboa for .overhaul, a
job requiring several weeks.
The overhaul is primarily for
replacement of wood sections
providing the seal and set cush-
ions which bear against the lock
entrances when. the caisson is
sunk into place. This caisson is
one acquired at the time of the
opening of the Canal. It weighs
nearly 1,600 tons, is 65 feet high,
113 feet 10 inches wide, and 36
feet. across at its maximum
moulded breadth.
The cisson has approximately

850 tons of concrete and iron bal-
last for stability and floats at
a draft of 34 feet, which: can be
increased to .61 feet by flooding
when it is in place on the deepest
lock sills.
This caisson normally is sta-
tioned- along the southwest wing
Wall at Gatun Locks. The other
caisson, acquired in 1941, is moor-
ed in Miraflores Lake.
For the wood replacement part
of the overhaul in progress.
basra locus, or Angelique wood
(dicorynia paraensis) is used.
This wood, from neighboring La-
tin American countries, has been

Safety Representative Knew

S-His Job A Life
W. F. Russon, safety represent-
ative of the Transportation and
Terminals Bureau, of the At-
lantic Terminals area, practiced
in off-duty hours what he prech-
es during duty hours and saved
a life.
His good deed came to light
when SP-5 George. T. Workman
of Headquarters Company, the
-U. S: Army-School of'the Amer-
icas, Fort Gulick, wrote a letter
to the Chief of the Panama Can-
al Safety Branch and expressed
sincere appreciation and thanks
for Mr. Russon's quick action
that resulted in saving Mrs.
-Workman's life. -
The background circumstances
in the France Field Community
were quite ordinary. SP-5 Work-
man went bowling with the Mon-
day Night League of Fort Gulick,
as is his custom. Mrs. Workman

Was Saved
started defrosting the refrigerat-
or. Mr. Russon, who also re-
sides at France Field, was visit-
ing a neighbor.
Suddenly fumes began to pour
out from the rear of the refri-
gerator. Mrs. Workman tried to
get behind the refrigerator to
pull the plug, but was unable
to move the heavy refrigerator.
She tried not to panic and called
to a neighbor for help. The lat-
ter also was unable to move the
refrigerator, noted the plug was
wedged in, and called down to
Mr. Russon that help was iequir-
Together the" men pulled the
refrigerator away-to get at the
plug, and Mr. Russon heard Mrs.
Workman say "I can't breathe,"
. as she stood in the doorway
"watching the operation.
He helped her to a chair and
noted -that her pulse was faint.
He began to administer artificial
respiration and after a few min-
utes she began to gasp for
breath but could not move or
talk. The neighbor, meanwhile,
called for an ambulance and had
notified SP-5 Workman.
The story has a happy ending.
"Since then, my wife has fully
recovered," says the letter from
SP-5 Workman, who adds '"we
are both most grateful that Mr.
Russon was available at, the
critical time and appreciative of
his quick thinking and skill,
without which we might not have
been so lucky."

SThe first day out on the Pan-
ama Canal launch Corbina last
weekend proved to be the start
of one of the most successful
-trips yet made by the launch
in this year's Marlin and Sail-
fish Tournament.
Charles Norris of Supply and
Community Service Bureau land-
ed a 97-pound sailfish on that
first day, thus becoming the.
leadoff man in a fishing trip
which produced nine sailfish
from a total of 17 strikes.
Fred Mohl of the Fire Division
and. George Babinecz of the Ma-
rine Bureau teamed up on a
"doubleheader" the second day
out. Neither had ever caught a
sail before, then both had strikes

In developing plans for 'future
Canal needs, it is planned to test
the capacity of Gatun Locks for
selected modes of operation.
The planned tests are includ-
ing, to the extent that equipment,
personnel and shipping are avail-
able, double-culvert operation in
both lanes, relay lockage opera-
tions, and other culvert operating
'conditions that may occur in
future years when it is neces-
sary to take a culvert out of
service for overhaul of normally
submerged valves and their im-
bedded parts. The relayilockage
operations are being tested for
the first tihce with two sets of
locomotives 4in- one lane and a
third set in another lane, this

Canal Zone Governor Robert
J. Fleming, Jr., plans to observe
the tests Thursday. Last week
Canal Zone Lieut. Governor David
S. Parker witnessed Canal Ca-
pacity Tests. .
Analysis of the tests may take
several months, Acting Marine
Director Dryja, stated. He is
coordinator of the tests and is in
charge of liaison and prepara-
tion of the final report.

Eager Be iters

But No Drumst

The first project- undertaken
by Panama Physical Education
Teacher Pedro Guerrere G., at
the La Palma Junior High School
in Darien Province, is organiza-
tion of a Bugle and Drum Corps.
The greater part of the -necessary
instruments have been acquired
but prospective drummers lack
two drums.
The Panama Canal Women's
Welfare Group heard of this
need of the Darien school and,
in keeping with its objective of
helping people help themselves,
is issuing an appeal for a con-
tribution of drums.
Anyone having drums and
wishing to contribute them to
the La Palma Junior High School
Bugle and Drum Corps is asked
to telephone Mrs. Elmer G. Ab-
bott, Balboa 1585, president of
the Panama Canal Women's Wel-
fare Group.

O.E., Historian Without an
Armchair is a memoir -by Otto
Eisenschiml a well-known and
provocative historian of the
Civil War. Among the delights
in this narrative are Dr. Ei-
senschilml's accounts of the
unusual methods which he em-
ploys in solving historical mys-
teries. In one case, he tells how
a -lock of John Wilkes Booth's
hair helped him to unravel the
confusion surrounding Booth's
death. The book, chatty in style
and personal in presentation,
will be absorbing reading for
anyone who is interested in
solving historical puzzlers.

a lifetime has given penetrating
and candid attention to our
society and its institutions and
has admired its greatness and
has re-examined its strength.
This collection presents Walter
Lippmann as one of the great
political thinkers of the West.

.Eltanal de Panama Satisfactorias Pruebas De

S PILLWAY Capacidad Reducen Las

Realizan TraveNsa Partial Horas En Aguas Del Canal

Del Canal El Dia De Jamaica
* IIlIII s...

Las pruebas sobre capacidad
del Canal que comprenden obser-
vaciones sobre diversos m6todos
de operaci6n que antes no habian
sido probados se perfilan en for-
ma satisfactoria durante la pri-
mera semana el period de prue-
.ba fijado del 28 de julio al 17
de agosto.
Durante la primera semana de
esas pruebas algunas naves fue-
ron retrasadas en sus travesias
por cortas horas, pero la mayo-
ria se benefici6 y como resulta-
do de ello se obtuvo un promedio
de 13.9 horas en aguas del Ca-
nal comparadas con las 14.6 ho-
ras que, por t6rmino medio, de-
moraron en estas aguas los
barcos durante los 3 iltimos
meses del afio fiscal de 1963.
Durante julio de este afio el pro-
medio fue de catorce horas y el
dia 3 de agosto se rebaj6 --ese
dia- a 10.4
En la segunda semana de las
pruebas, debido al reducido
trAnsito registrado, fue necesario
demorar a algunas naves para
contar con n6mero suficiente pa-
ra las horas de prueba fijadas
de 3 de'la tarde a 11 de la no-
El Canal de PanamA siempre
ha prestado atenci6n preferen-
te a lo relative a su capacidad
de trAnsito de naves, declare el
Director de Marina interino, Wal-
ter A. Dryja. Los cAlculos he-
chos hasta el present estaban
basados en las habilidad de las
"mulas" entonces en servicio.
Para calcular la capacidad de
las esclusas hubo que presumir-
se una operaci6n de relevo en
las dos vias sin contar con, una
experiencia veridica de tal ope-
raci6n simultAnea en ambas

vias. Tampoco existe experien-
cia previa en la operaci6n o fun-
cionamiento de una via en relevo
y, al mismo tiempo, teniendo la
otra via de las esclusas en ser-
vicio con un solo juego de "mu-
las". .
Algunas de las pruebas de ca-
pacidad del Canal han demostra-
do que los estimados previous so-
bre su capacidad en m6todos da-
dos de operaci6n quedaron cor-
-tos en algunos casos y se ex-
cedieron en otros. Las pruebas
de capacidad se verifican en Ga-
tun, que estA equipada con sufi-
cientes "mulas" para realizar
operaciones en relevo en la ve-
reda Occidental.y para operacio-
nes usuales en la vereda Orien-
tal. En la preparaci6n de pla-
nes para las necesidades futu--
ras del Canal se proyecta pro-
- bar la capacidad delas esclusas
de Gatin bajo m6todos seleccio-
nados de operaci6n. Las pruebas
que se tienen planeadas inclu-
yen hasta donde se cuente
con el equipo, personal y naves'
disponibles el funcionamiento
double de alcantarillado. en am-
.bas veredas; el transport por
las esclusas en relevo y otras
condiciones de funcionamiento
del alcantarillado que podrian
surgir en aaios futures cuando se
precise colocar fuera de uso una
alcantarilla para reacondicionar
vAlvula normalmente sumersas
y parties a ellas incrustadas.
La operaci6n en relevo por las
esclusas estA siendo sometida a
prueba por primera vez con dos
juegos de "mulas" en una vere-
da y un tercer juego en la otra,
siendo ello possible gracias a las.
nuevas "Mulas" japonesas aho-
ra empleadas.

El anAlisis de las pruebas que
ahora se verifican llevarA va-
ries meses, segun opina el Di-
rector interino de Marina, Sefior
Dryja, quien es coordinator de
las pruebas y esta encaigado de
la preparaci6n del informed final.
R. C. Stockham, jefe de'la Di-
visi6n de Esclusas, esta a car-
go de los calculos del mAximo
te6rico de capacidad de las es-
clusas; las pruebas de capacidad
de las esclusas de Gatufn bajo
diversos m6todos de operaci6n
y evaluar los resultados finales
a fin de calcular la possible ca-
pacidad de las esculsas de Gat'n,
lo que podria servir tambi6n
para un calculo aproximado de
la capacidad de las de Mira-
flores y Pedro Miguel.
El CapitAn d'el Puerto de Cris-
t6bal, Andrew S. Stohrer, pre-
par6 las reglas que rigieron los
m6todos de manejo de naves en
las esclusas y esti encargado
del despacho, de b'arcos por las
esclusas y la asignaci6n de re-
molcadores durante el period
de pruebas.
El jefe del Control de Trafnsi-
to Maritmio, R. C. O'Neal, es-
tf a cargo de los procedimientos
y normas relacionados con el
control de las travesias, el an&a
lisis de control de presuntos
trAnsitos y la preparaci6n de es
timados de disminuci6n, de la
capacidad del Canal :y estimados
de las mejoras a esa capacidad
del Canal si se efectuaran cam-
Para esta semana tiene fijado
el Gobernador Robert J. Fle-
mimg, Jr., ir, personalmente a
observerr las 'pruebas, tal como
lo hiciera el Vicegobernador Da-
vid S. Parker.

El primer aniversario de la Independencia de Jamaica fue
celebrado por los jubilados por incapacidad del Canal de Pana-
ma con un. recorrido parcial por el Corte Gaillard en la lancha
Las Cruces del Canal de Panama.
El viaje fue arreglado por el Ramovde Servicios a Empleados
en cooperaci6n con el Servicio de Guias de 14 Zona del Canal.
Los buses recogieron a los jubilados-en Anc6n y en el Asilo
Desde Anc6n el grupo fue al Auditorio de la Escuela Secun-
daria de Balboa en donde vi6 una pelicula sobre el Canal de
Panama y su construcci6n. Esta peliaula fue bien comentada por
los jubilados. Muchos de ellos comenzaron a recorder los "vie-
S jos tiempos". Despu6s viajaron al desembarcadero de Pedro Mi-
e guel para abordar la lancha Las Cruces, en donde encontraron
cafe, sodas y empanadas esperindolos. Tom6 alg6n tiempo en
