Canal Transits Record

Set 3rd Straight Month

The all-time record for the number of oceangoing
ships using the Panama Canal was broken in March for
the third consecutive month.
During the 31-day period, a total of 1,110 ships of
300 Panama Canal net tons or more made the passage
from ocean to ocean. This brought the daily average
up to a record-breaking 35.81 ships and the total for
month to a new high in the history of the Canal.
The month of March was not only a record-breaker
in itself, but it had one of the busiest transit weeks in
the history of the Canal. During the week of March 8
to 16, an average of 40.5 oceangoing ships passed
through the Canal each day. The minimum number in
one day was 33 on Sunday, March 8, and the maximum
and all-time record day was Tuesday, March 10, with
47 ships.
Of the 1,110 vessels making the transit during the
month, 23 were U.S. Government-owned ships and 10
classed as free transits. In addition, there were 74 smaller
ships under 300 Panama Canal net tons not classified
Sas oceangoing.
The total of 1,110 ships in March was 45 more than

"Mindi" Retired, but It's the '07

Model, Not the Big Suction Dredge

A former 5-yard construction-day
dipper dredge, used since 1918 at
Gamboa as a barge repair station,
has been turned over to the Gamboa
Yacht Club by the Dredging Divi-
sion and will end its days as a
workshop for small boat repairs.
The old piece of floating equip-
ment, known in recent years as barge
repair station No. 171, was originally
named the Mindi. It was built for
the Panama Canal at a cost of
$100,000 at the Featherstone Found-
ry & Machine Co. of Chicago in 1906
and brought to the Isthmus in 1907.
It was one of two 5-yard dipper
dredges used in the Atlantic side
Canal channel excavation from Cris-
tobal to Gatun and was especially
useful in removing the coral rock

the number using the Canal in January, the previous
record-breaking month. February was a record month,
too, with a daily average of 35.31 as compared to the
high daily average of 34.03 set in January.
With the heavy March traffic, the daily average of
transits for the first 9 months of the fiscal year was
approximately 33 oceangoing ships each day.
March is usually a peak traffic month for the Panama
Canal. Economists attribute the extra number of ships
to the fact that the European market is trading heavily
with other parts of the world during the early part of
the calendar year and that this trade is naturally reflected
in Panama Canal traffic. Because of the booming
European economy, trade is especially heavy this year.
Predictions have been made, however, that traffic
through the Canal will drop slightly during April with a
possible reduction in the daily average by approximately
one ship.
Most of the vessels using the Canal in March were
average size, with super carriers and tankers less evident
than in other months.

and sandstone common to the
Atlantic side.
In 1918 it was removed from
dredging duty, transformed into a
barge repair station and the name
Mindi given to the big Panama Canal
suction dredge, one of the world's
largest, used since 1943 to keep the
Canal's harbors and channel open
to navigation.
As a barge repair station, the
former dipper dredge was stationed
at Gamboa most of the time but
could be moved from place to place
if necessary to tend Canal scows.
Most of the machinery aboard was
removed at the time of its retire-
ment. The former drill boat Vulcan
has been converted by the Dredging
Division into a barge repair station
to replace No. 171.

*Pan American Day, Week to Mark

74th Birthday of O.A.S. Proclaimed
Tracing the beginnings of hemispheric cooperation and understanding
to their origin on the Isthmus of Panama nearly 140 years ago, Governor
Fleming has proclaimed April 14 as Pan American Day and the week of
April 12-18 as Pan American Week.
The proclamation declares the sincere desire of the people of the Canal
Zone to help further inter-American solidarity and strengthen the bonds
of friendship among all nations of the hemisphere.
Text of the proclamation follows:
Whereas the Organization of American States will observe its 74th
birthday on April 14, 1964; and
Whereas the cornerstone of hemispheric cooperation and understanding
was laid on the Isthmus of Panama in 1826 when the first inter-American
conference was held under the inspired leadership of Sim6n Bolivar; and
Whereas all persons dedicated to the operation and protection of the
Panama Canal for the benefit of hemispheric and world commerce share
the ideals and aspirations of the citizens of the American Republics for
social and economic progress through mutual cooperation; and
Whereas it is the sincere desire of the people of the Canal Zone to help
further inter-American solidarity and strengthen the bonds of friendship
among all nations of this hemisphere;
Now Therefore, I, ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr., Governor of the Canal Zone,
do hereby proclaim Tuesday, April 14, 1964, as Pan American Day and
the week from April 12, 1964, to April 18, 1964, as Pan American Week.
In the interest of inter-American friendship and solidarity I urge all residents
and interested organizations to participate in this observance as testimony
to the historical ties which unite the people of the Canal Zone with the
peoples of all the Americas.
In Testimony Whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused
the seal of the Canal Zone to be affixed at Balboa Heights, Canal
Zone, this 20th day of March, 1964.
(Signed) ROBERT J. FLEMING, Jr.,
By the Governor:
Executive Secretary.

Two Veteran Terminals Division Employees Retiring

Presented Gold Keys to Locks by Governor Fleming

Two Panama Canal employees who
retired at the end of March with more
than 40 years service were presented
gold keys to the Panama Canal Locks
by Governor Fleming during a retire-
ment ceremony held in the Board
Room at Balboa Heights last week.
They were Lloyd E. Brathwaite,
a Terminals Division messenger, who
had 40 years and 3 months service
with the Canal and Lionel E.
Minerve, leader stevedore in the Ter-
minals Division, with 41 years and
7 months of service.
Governor Fleming congratulated
the men and women who were
retiring. He told them that the

U.S. Government was proud of the
way they had done their jobs and
was grateful for their faithful service.
Retirement certificates were pres-
ented to the employees listed below,
vith their positions at time of retire-
ment and years of Canal service:

Lloyd E. Brathwaite, Messenger, Ter-
minals Division, Atlantic Side; 40
years, 3 months, 18 days.
Walter W. Carlson, Lead Foreman
(Barge Maintenance), Dredging
Division, Pacific Side; 16 years,
11 months 22 days.
Capt. Carl W. Cetti Pilot, Naviga-
tion Division, Atlantic Side; 24
years, 9 months, 13 days.

No Signs Posted on Skin Diving,

Water Skiing, but There Are Rules

sufficiently to avoid creating a
dangerous wake or wash."
The section pertaining to water
skiing says:
"When towing a person on water
skis or an aquaplane, or similar
device, a motorboat or any other
vessel shall, in addition to the oper-
ator, carry an observer at least 12
years of age, so placed in the motor-
boat or other vessel as to be able to
keep the operator fully informed of
all conditions potentially hazardous
to the person towed or any other
property or person in the vicinity.
The observer shall be alert and shall
keep the operator fully informed of
all hazards. The operator shall devote
his full attention to operating the
motorboat or other vessel in a safe

Ban on During Darkness
"No person shall operate a motor-
boat or other vessel on the waters
of the Canal Zone towing a person
or persons on water skiis, or aqua-
plane or similar device, nor shall any
person engage in water skiing, aqua-
planing or other similar activity
between the hours from sunset to
"No person shall operate water
skis, an aquaplane, or similar device
in such manner as to endanger the
life, limb or property of any person."

There's no sign that says "No re-
creational skin diving in the waters
of the Canal proper." But it is right
there in the "Rules and Regulations
Governing Navigation of The Pan-
ama Canal and Adjacent Waters."
There are rules governing water
skiing, too, which involve more than
donning water skis and taking off
over the waves.
The section that refers to recrea-
tional skin diving says:
"Recreational skin diving in waters
of the Canal proper; including Gail-
lard Cut and the channel through
Gatun and Miraflores Lakes and in
the waters of all ship's anchorages,
harbors, piers, and docks is prohi-
bited unless authorized in writing by
the respective Port Captain. Author-
ization shall not be given for skin
diving at night.

Flag Required
"When recreational skin diving
activities are under way in any
waters of the Canal Zone, a flag
with a hoist or height of not less
than 12 inches and a fly or length
of not less than 18 inches, with a
red background and a 32-inch diago-
nal white stripe from the upper
corner of the staff end of the flag to
the lower corner of the outside end
of the flag, shall be displayed from

ties are under way shall reduce speed

gathered to do honor to a messenger
last week. The honor guest was
Ethelridge Daniels, who this month
will complete half a century of
Canal service. Sharing the limelight
with him was his wife, Mrs. Carlotta
H. I. Perantie, Chief of the Admin-
istrative Services Division, as master
of ceremonies, greeted the distin-
guished guests and friends of "Dan"
who were present to honor one of
the grand old men of the Canal
organization. In his 50 years, all spent
with the same branch of service.
Ethelridge Daniels has been a top-
notch employee who has done an
outstanding job on all assignments,
said Mr. Perantie. He noted that for
many years Ethelridge Daniels was
stationed at the Governor's station
for messengers and that he had per-
sonally known every Governor the
Canal has had, as well as other high
officials, together with a host of
friends throughout the building.
Canal Zone Governor Fleming
Presented the honor guest a 50-year
service award and expressed the
"deep and heartfelt gratitude" of

the Canal organization. A "Master
Key to the Locks" was also presented
to Daniels, and another to his wife.
A Superior Service Award, to-
gether with a check for $150, was
presented Ethelridge Daniels by
Perantie for "continued fine assist-
ance in effecting improvements in
operations of the mail room, with
particular reference to training of
new messengers and to the sched-
uling and routing of mail deliveries
for maximum efficiency."
The guest of honor spoke briefly,
and Mrs. Daniels also briefly re-
marked on the deep meaning the
event had for the couple.
Ethelridge Daniels was born in
Barbados, and arrived on the Isth-
mus February 2, 1913. He worked
as a janitor in the old Adminstration
Building in Ancon from April 1,
1914, to August 19, 1918, when he
transferred to the Administration
Building at Balboa Heights. Most
of his service was as a messenger,
but at retirement he is a supervisor
in the mail and files unit of the
Administrative Services Division.
A year ago, on March 31, he
was presented an Outstanding Per-
formance Rating.
Mr. and Mrs. Daniels reside in
Pedro Miguel. They had seven chil-
dren, and four still reside with them.

Retired, but Not Retiring Yet;

Dr. Moody Will Complete CZC Year

Dr. Dorothy B. Moody, dean of
women and head of the English
Department at the Canal Zone Col-
lege, who has been a member of the
faculty since the founding of the
College, received her retirement cer-
tificate at the ceremony March 31
but will continue in her position at
the College to the end of the present
school year. Her Canal service totals
30 years, 6 months, and 6 days. Of
the six original faculty members,
only Dr. Moody is still on the college
Dr. Moody was born in Lenexa,
Kans., and was educated in the
schools there. From high school she
enrolled at the University of Kansas,
where she received a bachelor of
arts degree in 1922. She received
her master's degree at Yale Univer-
sity in 1927 and in 1931 began her
work at Yale for a doctor's degree,
which she received in 1938.
While she was doing graduate
work at Yale she saw a circular from
the proposed Canal Zone Junior Col-
lege asking for applications. She
applied and after what seemed like
a long time, she says, she was noti-
fied she had been appointed to the
faculty to teach English and speech.
With the exception of 1 year, when
she took leave of absence to com-
plete work for her doctorate, Dr.
Moody has been on the College Staff.
Prior to coming to the Canal Zone,
Dr. Moody taught English and
speech at Shawnee Mission High
School, from 1922 to 1923; was an
instructor in English at the Univer-
sity of Kansas, 1923-26, and 1927-31;
and taught at the State Teachers
College of Central Missouri in War-
rensburg, Mo., in the summer of
Dr. Moody arrived on the Isthmus
in 1933. In the earlier years there
were more extra curricular activities
under Dr. Moody's supervision than
she has time for today. For 6 or 7
years she sponsored the college
dramatics. She has also, at one time
or another, been responsible for the
publication of the yearbook, the
Conquistador, and the college maga-
zine, the Tropical Collegiate.
Dr. Moody has been a lecturer on
religious, academic and social service
topics, and she has been a book
reviewer. She was recipient of first
prize in a short story contest of the
Kansas Authors Club in 1923 and

Radio Free Europe: Tool To Expose

Iron Curtain "News" Distortions

Eighty million people in Eastern
Europe live under communism. For
them, the Iron Curtain is a con-
tinuing, menacing presence. But they
have a source of encouragement
which they turn to every day. It is
Radio Free Europe.
For 13 years, Radio Free Europe
has broadcast to Communist-con-
trolled Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hun-
gary, Rumania, and Bulgaria. It has
firmly established itself as the free
world's most influential network
broadcasting to these captive nations.
A non-profit American organiza-
tion, RFE is often confused with the
Voice of America, a U.S. Govern-
ment agency. RFE, however, is
non-governmental. Private American
citizens manage and supervise RFE.
All RFE programs are written and
broadcast by exiles from the net-
work's target countries, in the
languages of these countries.
Radio Free Europe exists to help
the people behind the Iron Curtain
resist the tyranny of communism and
maintain their historic ties with the
One of the most precious com-
modities in Eastern Europe is true
information. This cannot be obtained

from the Communist press and radio.
RFE breaks the Communist mo-
nopoly on information with objective
newscasts and commentaries. It
exposes the economic mismanage-
ment, the lies and distortions, the
brutality and human waste that are
products of communism. RFE is the
free press in exile for the people of
the Soviet European satellites.
With its broadcasts of religious
services, folk music, drama, and other
programs, RFE nourishes the cultural
and national aspirations of its lis-
teners. Much of the material it pro-
grams is expressly forbidden in these
The dictators of Eastern Europe
regularly heap abuse on RFE and
try to discourage listening to it. (They
themselves listen to RFE.) RFE
welcomes their attacks as a con-
vincing proof of its effectiveness.
Since it depends entirely on public
contributions, Radio Free Europe
needs the support of the American
people to continue its important work.
A contribution to RFE is one
way to assure that you are taking a
personal hand in RFE's fight against

A Savage Place, by Frank G.
Slaughter, is a novel about what
happened to a brilliant young
surgeon who returned to his home
town in upstate New York as a staff
surgeon of the town's new hospital.
The behavior of New Salem's most
prominent family complicates his job
and appears to threaten the prin-
ciples in which he believes. The
author is a doctor-turned-writer who
puts some of his own experience
into this novel. The story has in-
trigue, romance and excitement and
should please Dr. Slaughter's many
Quest of the Bogeyman is still
another in the long succession of
thrillers by Frances and Richard
Lockridge. This one is about a beau-
tiful young girl who, while her
wealthy foster father is lying ill in
a hospital, meets a phony who pre-
tends to be her real father. All kinds
of things happen in this who-dun-it,
as in the other Lockridge tales, but
there is a gimmick in this one that
gives it a special quick. This book
is for mystery lovers who like
glamourous scenes, beguiling crooks,
pretty young girls and a complicated
plot. It is exciting and will be useful
in taking one's mind off his current
Paris in the Terror, June 1793-
July 1797, by Stanley Loomis, is part
history, part biography, and partly

a collection of descriptive notes of
Paris during the latter days of the
French Revolution. Some of the most
famous and infamous personalities of
the period become familiar and life-
like as they appear in this excitingly
written book. Loomis is a specialist
on France of the 18th century and
has spent many years delving into
source material. His best known book
of 18th century France is Du Barry,
published in 1959.
Pilgrim at Sea, by Par Lagerkvist,
is the last novel in a tetralogy which
started with Barabbas. The theme of
the four novels is man's search for
God. Par Lagerkvist is one of
Sweden's famous writers whose
longest preoccupation has been the
struggle of humanity with good and
evil. The author has won many
honors, including the Nobel Prize
for Literature in 1951.
Convention is a political novel by
Fletcher Knebel and Charles W.
Bailey II. The story is a fictional
account of "the 30th Republican
National Convention." Everything
appears to be set for the long-time
favorite to walk away with the
nomination. Then he utters one apt
but politically naive phrase. This
puts an end to his hopes for calm
progress toward what almost every-
one had considered a foregone
conclusion. This story is exciting,
well-done and timely.

1,110 Barcos en el Mes

La marca de todos los tiempos para
la cantidad de barcos de alto calado
que usan el Canal de Panama, fue
superada en marzo por el tercer mes
Durante el period de 31 dias, un
total de 1,110 barcos de 300 o mas
toneladas netas del Canal de Pana-
ma hicieron el transito de oc6ano a
oc6ano. Esto aument6 el promedio
diario a la marca record de 35.81
barcos y el total para un mes a un
.nuevo maximo en la historic del
El mes de marzo no solamente
constituy6 un record, sino que tuvo
una de las semanas mas ocupadas en
transito en la historic del Canal. Du-
rante la semana del 8 al 16 de marzo,
un promedio de 40.5 barcos de alto
calado pasaron diariamente por el
Canal. La cantidad minima en un dia
fue de 33 el domingo 8 de marzo, y
el maximo, que constituy6 una marca
de todos los tiempos se registry el
martes 10 de marzo con 47 barcos.
De los 1,110 navios que hicieron
el transit durante el mes, 23 fueron
barcos de propiedad del Gobierno de
los Estados Unidos y 10 clasificados
como de libre transito. Ademas hubo
74 barcos mAs pequefos por debajo
de las 300 toneladas netas del Canal
de Panama no clasificados como de
alto calado.
El total de 1,110 barcos en marzo
result en 45 sobre el n6mero regis-
trado en el Canal durante el mes de

enero, cuando se implant la marca
anterior. Febrero constituy6 un
record tambi6n, con un promedio
diario de de 35.31, comparado con
el alto promedio diario de 34.03
registrado en enero.
Con el intense trafico de marzo, el
promedio diario de trinsitos para los
primeros 9 meses del afio fiscal fue
aproximadamente de 33 barcos de
alto calado.
El mes de marzo result .por lo
general el que registra el mayor tra-
fico para el Canal de Panama. Los
economists atribuyen la cantidad
extra de barcos en el hecho de que
el mercado europeo esta comerciando
en grandes cantidades con otras
parties del mundo durante la primera
parte del afio calendario y que este
comercio se refleja naturalmente en
el trlfico del Canal de Panama.
Debido al aumento de la economic
europea, el comercio es especialmente
enorme este afio.
Se han hecho predicciones, sin
embargo, que el trafico a trav6s del
Canal disminuira ligeramente du-
rante abril con una possible re-
ducci6n en el promedio diario de
aproximadamente un barco.
La mayoria de los navios que usa-
ron el Canal en marzo fueron del
tamafio promedio, notandose menos
los super cargueros y tanqueros que
en otros meses. El tamaiio de los
barcos en el Canal se reflej6 en el
promedio de la cantidad de peajes,
que descendi6 de'$5,219 en febrero
a $5,093 en marzo.

El tabaco es eficaz en combatir
pardsitos intestinales. Tal revel6 un
labriego de Rodesia del Sur quien
observe que sus ovejas gustaban de
desperdicios de hojas de tabaco. Se
las dio de comer, en residues de las
hojas del tabaco o ramitas, y not6
que con eso lograba destruir pardsi-
tos en los intestines de las ovejas.
