THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal Museun:


Vol. III, No. 2 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Thursday, July 2, 1964


These girls washed cars to earn money for the Kennedy Memorial Library
Fund. Gov. Robert J. Fleming, Jr., receives a check for $20 from Patricia
Hannigan, president of Balboa Senior Girl Scout Troop No. 27, and a list
of the 19 members who participated. The project was thought up by the
girls themselves who spent one evening at the home of Troop Adviser
Mrs. Elmer B. Orr designing posters advertising the 1-day car wash service.
In order to earn the $20, they worked one Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. polishing off a number of dirty automobiles belonging to local residents.
All customers were reported satisfied. Left to right are Regina Gaspari,
Sharon Botzenmayer, Governor Fleming, Miss Hannigan, and Lois Meyer.

Nearly $14,000 Sent to Survivors

Of 4 Servicemen Killed in January

Nearly $14,000 representing pub-
lic contributions is being sent to the
United States this week to be dis-
tributed among the surviving mem-
bers of the families of the four U.S.
servicemen who gave their lives in
the performance of their duties
during the disorders in January.
The donations were received from
hundreds of U.S. employees, Canal
Zone residents, and other interested
Distribution of the fund to the
survivors is being made on the basis
of need, with consideration given to
the number of dependents, especially
minor children.
Four-ninths, or approximately
$6,150, is going to the family of Sgt.
Gerald A. Aubin, who is survived by
a widow and three minor children
living in Millbury, Mass.
Three-ninths, or approximately
$4,500, is being given to the widow
and two small children of Staff Sgt.
Luis Jim6nez-Cruz. This family, now
living in Seattle, Wash., will receive
the fund in monthly installments
over a 2-year period from a Wash-
ington bank.
One-ninth or about $1,500 is being
sent to the parents of Michael D.
Rowland whose father and mother

live in Anaheim, Calif. The same
amount is going to the mother of
David J. Haupt, living in Los
Angeles, Calif.
The costs associated with the col-
lection and distribution of the funds
are being assumed by the Balboa
Branch of the Chase Manhattan
Bank. The committee has expressed
its appreciation for the fine response
from the many contributors.
The fund was started in January
by a group made up of members of
civic, veterans,' religious, and fra-
ternal groups in the Canal Zone. It
was headed by George A. Black,
chairman; John H. Terry, secretary;
and Edward G. Coyle, treasurer.
Cash contributions ranging from
$1 to $100 began pouring in imme-
diately. Last week the total amount
of the fund to be used to benefit
the families of the four deceased
servicemen stood at $13,842.
In a memorandum announcing the
creation of the fund, members of the
committee said "there is no com-
pensation we can offer for the services
of the men involved. However, as a
gesture of our lasting gratitude to
all of them, we can contribute to a
fund that will benefit the families of
those who have made the supreme
sacrifice in this tragic affair."

More Hornblower Novels? Visiting

Author Says It's "Very Unlikely"

To be in a profession more than
40 years is not too unusual, but to
be a success nearly all that time is
Such is the case of a recent Canal
visitor, C. S. Forrester, author of the
world-renowned series of Captain
Horatio Hornblower sea novels. For-
rester was on the Isthmus (he has
been here several times before)
while the ship on which he was a
passenger transited the Canal.
Born 65 years ago in Cairo, Egypt
(the son of an English army officer),
Forrester now lives in Berkley, Calif.,
with his wife, also a native of Eng-
land. Their two sons, both physicists
in California, now are American
Forrester makes a trip to England
annually for talks with his agent.
He was returning from just such a
trip last week.
A former newsman, poet, and
copywriter, Forrester began to make
a name for himself at the age of 20.
By the time he was 22 he was
"moderately successful." It was his
11-novel series of Captain Horatio
Hornblower, gentleman-soldier in
Her Majesty's Royal Navy during
the Napoleonic Era, that brought
him fame. He has written other
novels, novelettes, and short stories.

His interest in seafaring life came
about through extensive reading for
enjoyment, rather than considerable
personal experience in sailing. He
did, however, make a junket through
the backwaters of Germany, France,
and England in a dinghy.
A chipper, delightful gentleman
with a slight British accent, Forrester
revealed his philosophy about
writing. He finds it most advisable to
"work a thing out thoroughly before
writing it." He strives for characters
who are observant and sensitive. An
English reviewer once said, com-
menting on a book on marionettes by
Forrester: "Whilst novelists may
often be accused of making puppets
of their characters, Forrester succeeds
in making characters of his puppets."
Asked if there would be any more
Hornblower books, he replied "very
unlikely. He's (Hornblower) run out
of the time in his life." The real
reason, Forrester disclosed, is that he
would like to try something new. He
now is working on this new idea
but would not reveal the nature of
the work. He is, however, finishing
a book called The Hornblower Com-
panion, which should be released
late this year. Forrester won the
James Tait Black Memorial prize
for literature for his Hornblower

Student Assistants On The Job

In the Budget and Rates Division, .t ,
Marian Cheseldine, an accountant --
major in her sophomore year at Canal
Zone College, and winner of the
Federal Government Accountants'
Association Scholarship, is one of
three student assistants. She is
shown here as she prepares to
arrange budget estimates.

Student assistant in the Electrical-
Mechanical Branch of the Engineer-
ing Division is Ralph Edmondson.
He is shown here revising "as built"
drawings of the Fuel Oil Treatment
Plant of the Miraflores Powerplant.
Ralph is going into his senior year
at Clemson University, where he is
majoring in electrical engineering.

Working as student assistant in the
Payroll and Machine Accounting
Branch of the Accounting Division
is Mary Morris, a pre-med major in
her second year at Canal Zone Col-
lege. She is shown here listing, on
a 407 I.B.M. accounting machine,
Canal Zone money orders paid in
the United States.

Gene Frauenheim, one of two stu-
dent assistants in the Meteorological
and Hydrographic Branch of the
Electrical Division, takes a reading
on a micro-barograph. Gene, an
accountant major, has completed 2
years at Canal Zone College and
will attend the University of North
Carolina next year.

Forrester's batting average is
1.000: he has had 40 books published
and not a single one turned down.
With a smile he added that he turned
one down himself after finishing it
because he "didn't like it."
Among Forrester's books which
have been the basis for movies are
The African Queen, Single-Handed,
and Payment Deferred (the picture
in which Charles Laughton made
his film debut).

"The General," Forrester feels,
"was the most skillful book I've
"Eating" ink almost as fast as food
(Forrester claims to be the fastest
eater in the British Isles), the former
medical student sets on paper about
1,000 words a day. He can put
together a regular size novel in 3 to
4 months.
In addition to writing fiction, For-
rester occasionally acts as a foreign

correspondent for the London Times.
Forrester was asked about the
U.S.S. Biddle, a U.S. Navy guided
missile destroyer, which may, in the
future, be manned by a multi-nation
crew under the NATO organization.
"I don't see any reason why it
shouldn't work," he said. "A man
is a sailor first. Whether he is an
American or an Englishman comes
second." He feels that language
difficulties "can be overcome."

Julio 2, 1964



Un afamado novelist visit nues-
tro medio la pasada semana. No era
la primera vez que C. S. Forrester,
autor de las muy populares aventu-
ras del Capitdn Horacio Hornblower
venia al Istmo, donde ya ha estado
anteriormente varias veces.
Nacido en El Cairo, Egipto, el
Sr. Forrester, hijo de un official del
ej6rcito ingl6s, reside actualmente
con su esposa-tambi6n inglesa-en
Berkley, California. Tienen dos hijos,
de nacionalidad estadounidense am-
bos, y ambos son fisicos de profesi6n.
El novelist ingl6s realize un viaje
annual a Inglaterra para celebrar en-
trevistas con sus editors. Al pasar
por aqui la semana pasada, venia
de regreso de su patria.
Forrester-quien se inici6 en las
letras cuando solo contaba 20 afios
de edad, tiene en la actualidad 65.
Ha escrito much: novelas, cuentos,
cr6nicas de viaje; pero lo que le trajo



El ex campe6n gallo del Istmo,
Luis Patifio, se impuso el domingo
por la noche al jamaicano Killer Salo-
mon por decision uninime en 10
asaltos, en el encuentro disputado en
el tinglado del Gimnasio Nacional.
Los fanAticos que acudieron a pre-
senciar este combat, vieron un nuevo
tinglado con cuatro cuerdas, el pri-
mero en la America Latina de esta
clase, y que se estA usando en algu-
nos Estados de los Estados Unidos
para evitar que los boxeadores se den
golpes en la cabeza contra las cuer-
das al ser derribados. La cuerda del
medio, en los tinglados de res cuer-
das, fue la causante de la muerte del
ex campe6n mundial de peso pluma
Davey Moore, cuando perdi6 el ti-
tulo a manos del cubano Sugar
En la pelea del domingo no se
registraron caidas, pero Salomon su-
fri6 una herida en el labio superior
en el quinto asalto.
Es muy probable que Patifio se
mida el 26 de este mes al colombiano
Speedy Valiente en el Estadio Olim-
pico de PanamA, en uno de los corn-
bates estelares de esa noche. En el
otro se presentarian el colombiano
Antonio "Mochila" Herrera y el local
Julio "Chicha Fuerte" Ruiz.

sentar al Gobernador Robert J. Flem-
ing, Jr., quien llevarA la palabra en
el solemne acto.
Despues de escucharse algunas se-
lecciones musicales, ejecutadas por
la banda del Ej6rcito y los Pancanet-
tes, el Venerable Edwin C. Webster,

El despliegue pirot4cnico se ini-
ciara a las 7:30 de la noche en las
inmediaciones del Club Breakers. En
caso de inclemencia del tiempo, se
realizaria la siguiente noche propicia,
a la misma hora.

Horacio Hornblower, personaje no-
velesco que se agit6 en la Era
Forrester confiesa que sus conoci-
mientos sobre asuntos maritimos pro-
vienen mAs de la lectura que de expe-
riencia personal. Pero en realidad la
experiencia marina de Forrester no
es menguada, ya que ha viajado ex-
tensamente por vericuetos navega-
bles de Alemania, Francia e Ingla-

Tambien el Transito Maritimo

Esta Sujeto a Reglamentacion

Los peligros del trAnsito estin
siempre cerca de uno, aun en el mar.
Los duefios de pequefias lanchas
pueden pensar que pueden "librarse
de todo 6sto" cuando abordan sus
embarcaciones de recreo y parten
hacia el mar.
Pero esto no es asi.
Los botes estAn sujetos a las leyes
del trAnsito tal como lo estAn los
autom6viles-y como las leyes de
trAnsito automovilisticas, aquellas
que regulan el trAnsito maritime
varian de acuerdo con la localidad.
Cuando un duefio de lancha nave-
ga en aguas de la Zona del Canal,
debe obedecer las reglas que estin
contenidas en las "Reglas y Regla-
mentaciones que Regulan la Nave-
gaci6n del Canal de PanamA y Aguas
Adyacentes" establecidas en el C6-
digo de la Zona del Canal. Cuando
opera mis allA de las aguas fuera
de las lines limitrofes, llamadas
normalmente alta mar, serA regulado
por las Reglas Internacionales.
El Canal de PanamA tiene sus pro-
pias reglas y un duefio de bote pe-
quefo que proyecte navegar dentro
de la Zona del Canal, deberA apren-
derlas o de lo contrario quedar en
una situaci6n confusa similar a la que
aparece en la foto publicada en la
secci6n inglesa.
Las reglamentaciones del Canal de
PanamA advierten que, primero que
todo, cualquier media que se tome
debe ser positive, con suficiente
tiempo, y teniendo en cuenta el de-
bido cumplimiento de buena mari-
Los que operan lanchas a motor
deben tener en mente que los hidro-
aviones, en el acto de acuatizar o
despegar, o cuando operan bajo con-
diciones de tiempo adversas, pueden
estar impedidos de cambiar la acci6n
que intentaban, a ultimo moment.
Se advierte a los operarios mantener
despejada el Area de tales embarca-
ciones cuando aquellos estdn manio-
Las reglas del Canal de PanamA

prohiben usar las vias del Canal para
navios que zarpan; pero tales navios
pueden operar en las vias de entrada
de las radas y en el Lago Gatdn al
norte de Gamboa, siempre y cuando
no interfieran con demoras o pongan
en peligro a los navios grandes que
usan tales vias.
Por lo general un navio que zarpa
y un bote a motor (que significa
cualquier navio de 65 pies o menos
de eslora impulsado por maquinaria)
deben mantenerse fuera de la via de
un barco grande, que es cualquier
navio, que no sea bote a motor, im-
pulsado por maquinaria. Un bote a
motor debe ponerse fuera de la via
de un velero. Y todos los botes pe-
quefios deben mantenerse fuera de
la via de los navios grandes que
navegan en cualquier direcci6n a lo
largo del Canal. No deberan cruzar
por la proa de tales navios y deben
despejar la via hasta que el barco
en el centro del Canal haya pasado.
"Los remolcadores y botes a motor
deberAn, hasta donde sea possible,
mantenerse bien sobre ese lado del
Canal, que es su estribor cuando los
grandes navios estAn pasando."
Existen reglas especiales para
pasar a equipo flotante del Canal de
PanamA o navios bajo reparaci6n y
para la operaci6n de pequefias em-
barcaciones en las Esclusas del Canal
de PanamA. El operario de embar-
caci6n pequefia que desee transitar
por el Canal debera hacer los arreglos
con el Controlador de Trifico Mari-
timo. Por lo general los botes pequc-
fios transitan por las esclusas junto
con un navio grande.
AdemAs del tipo normal de bote a
motor que, de acuerdo con las reglas
internacionales, viene en cuatro cla-
ses, el Canal de PanamA tiene una
quinta clase de bote a motor. Este
es el cayuco impulsado por motor
hasta de 65 pies de eslora que es
usado para llevar provisions a las
islas en el Lago Gatun y tambien
opera en el Lago Madden y hasta
en el Rio Chagres.
