THE PANAMA CANAL Gift of the Panama Canal Museum

L Ship Captains Respond

0o To Questionnaire on

SPanama Canal Service

"After 40 years at sea, I still consider the Pan-
ama Canal the most efficient maritime service
in the world," said the master of the City of
Philadelphia, a British cargo vessel which was
one of the Canal's 1,002 commercial customers
last month.
The comment was among hundreds received
by the Chief of the Navigation Division in re-
sponse to a questionnaire by the Panama Canal
to ship captains transiting the Canal during Aug-
ust. They were asked for suggestions for im-
provement of service.
The answers now being received do not all
sing peans of praise for the operators of the
world's most famous waterway. There are com-
plaints as well as bouquets from the salty sea-
farers who, in all cases but one, answered ques-
tions regarding Canal facilities.
Adverse comments concerned communica-
tion problems, need for improvements in harbor
lights, anchorage facilities on the Atlantic side,
and delays in transit caused by heavy traffic.
There were some remarks about occasional
short tempers on the part of the ship's crew
and the Panama Canal personnel when contact
was made at the end of a long hard day.
This was not taken seriously and "usually
disappears after a good meal," said one French
sea captain who had his countrymen's philoso-
phical approach to problems caused by differ-
ences in language, politics, and customs.
The questionnaire covered such subjects as
navigational aids, communications, boarding fa-

cilities, suggestions for improved bunkering and
cargo handling, and general transit conditions.
Of the 1,000 or more questionnaires issued
during the month several hundred have been
returned so far. Others are received daily.
Some of the ship masters complained about
the amount of paper work necessary. Others
said that a master's life would be a lot simpler
if other ports were half as efficient.
One master complained that the pilot failed
to listen when he tried to explain his ship's
handling peculiarities and that he had had his
ship's side dented at the locks. Another said
that pilots were courteous, good humored at all
times, and a pleasure to have on board.
One suggested that the Panama Canal
"mules" be painted an international orange or
some bright color so that they would not blend
with the background and make it difficult to
tell if they were moving up to the vessel. An-
other suggested changes in scheduling with bet-
ter advance notice to the ship's master.
The most pleased Panama Canal customer
said that he would give first prize to the Pan-
ama Canal and that transits were always speedy
and efficient. He was impressed by the lack of
"rigamarole" and the smooth handling of ships.
All in all, he said, the Panama Canal was a
dream come true.
The most down-to-earth suggestion was made
by the ship captain who summed the whole
problem. "I believe," he said, "that the transit
from ocean to ocean would be faster if the Canal
could be developed at sea level."

Approach, Exit Ramps

Are Slated for Bridge

Secondary approach and exit
ramps, connecting Amador Road
with the Thatcher Ferry Bridge, will
be built by contract during the next
few months at an approximate cost
of $100,000. Bids for the work are
now being solicited and are schedul-
ed to be opened September 30 at
Balboa Heights.
The project will include the wid-
ening of a section of Amador Road,
relocation of water mains, demolition
of a cottage on Amador Road filling
of a part of the tidal flat of Panama
Bay, construction of guardrails, fenc-
ing and street lighting.
When the work is completed, traf-

fic will be able to enter the Thatcher
Ferry Bridge approach from a north-
ern ramp leading from Amador Road
and continue across bridge to the
west bank. Eastbound traffic com-
ing across the bridge may leave the
bridge approach at this point and
join Amador Road through the exit
or southern ramp.
In order to make room for the
southern or exit ramp, it will be
necessary to demolish a house on
Amador Road. The northern ap-
proach ramp will be located between
two houses on this road. The con-
tractor will have 7 months to com-
plete the work.

This is an expression, as most of the
world knows by now, is reserved for
a curious foursome named The Beat-
les. And this fan is one of many
who whooped and oooohed at the
Balboa Theater, where a film on
The Beatles was shown last Saturday.

SEnrollment Hits 8,837

In All U.S. Schools

Enrollment in the U.S. schools
in the Canal Zone reached a total
of 8,837 boys and girls between
the grades of kindergarten through
12th grade in senior high school,
according to figures released by the
Division of Schools Monday. Class-
es started Thursday, September 10.
An additional 474 had enrolled as
full-time students in the Canal Zone
College and 407 others were en-
rolled in classes on a part-time basis.
The new Fort Davis Elementary
School, which opened this fall, re-
ported an enrollment of 306 pupils
from kindergarten through grade 6.
Further enrollments are expected
within the next few weeks if the
pattern set in previous schools years
is followed. The Division of Schools

expects that from 250 to 300 more
students will arrive for registration
by the end of the month.
Usually, the peak enrollment is
reached by February.
On the Pacific side 6,693 students
were enrolled in all schools with a
majority of 3,320 in grades from 1
through 6. High schools grades
from 9 through 12 reported 1,795
students; junior high school 896 and
kindergarten 611.
Schools on the Atlantic side have
1,191 pupils in the elementary
grades, 256 in junior high school
and 474 in senior high school. There
are 205 others in kindergarten.
Special education classes account
for 71 students on the Pacific side
and 18 on the Atlantic side.



Anyone who thought there was an
unusual amount of rainfall on the
Isthmus in August was all wet. The
rain just appeared to be heavier
along the coasts, says the Panama
Canal Chief Hydrographer in his
monthly report. The August rain-
fall averaged close to normal, the
air temperature was 0.2 degree be-

low normal and the humidity was
only 0.8 percent above normal.
To go back to the Chief Hydro-
grapher's report, Gatun registered
almost precisely one-half the rainfall
recorded at Cristobal. Rainfall at
Gamboa, Madden Dam and Empire
were subnormal, while Balboa and
Cristobal were showered with more
than their normal amounts for Aug-


ust. The overall average for nine
stations was 11.45 inches, 0.13 inch
below normal, and ranged from a
low of 7.39 inches at Empire to a
high of 18.80 inches at Cristobal.
The highest temperature of 93 de-
grees was recorded at Gatun on Aug-
ust 29 and the lowest, 69 degrees,
at Madden Dam on August 27. The
average air temperature of 79.9 de-

agrees was 0.2 degree below normal
and the relative humidity of 87.3
percent was 0.8 percent above nor-
The total runoff from Gatun Lake
Basin was 543,226 acre-feet, 6 per-
cent above normal. The 203,282
acre-feet runoff from the area above
Madden Dam was only 1 percent
above normal and constituted 37

percent of the runoff from the entire
Fourteen seismic disturbances
were recorded on the Balboa Heights
seismographs during August. Of
these, only two were determined to
be within 300 miles of the Meteor-
logical and Hydrographic Branch
station. None were of sufficient in-
tensity to be felt locally.

Cork Newspapers Note

Isthmian Celebration

The 50th anniversary of the formal opening of the Panama
Canal was celebrated in Ireland, at the Crosshaven, County Cork
home of Henry J. Grieser who had had a day declared in his
honor when he retired from Panama Canal service in 1949.

In a letter to Canal Zone Governor
Fleming, Mr. Grieser acknowledges
receipt of the Panama Canal 50th
Anniversary book and says it will
"always bring back memories of the
happy times to Mrs. Grieser and my-
self during our association with the
people of the Canal Zone."
He says the Panama Canal's 50th
anniversary was celebrated with a
party at their home. American
friends in Ireland were among the
guests, and they were shown Mr.
Grieser's comprehensive collection of
material in his Panama Canal award
and trophy room.
His collection includes a framed
map of the Canal Zone and Panama
and photographs of all the Canal
Zone Governors starting with Gov-
ernor Goethals, photographs of Col-
onel W. C. Gorgas, Engineer John
Stevens and many others who made
the Canal possible, and a photograph
of Canal Zone Governor Newcomer
presenting Mr. Grieser his retire-
ment certificate on April 24, 1949
at a big public gathering on a day
designated "Coach and Mrs. Henry
Grieser Honor Day."
Henry J. Grieser's first Panama
Canal employment was in 1917 as a
physical training instructor in the
Department of Education.
During World War II he was gen-
erally in charge of recreational fa-
cilities for the troops.



His "Red, White and Blue" swim-
ming troupe gave swimming exhibi-
tions that won wide acclaim, and
swimming stars he trained went on
to take Olympic honors. His star
pupil was Alan Ford, who set a
world's record for the 100-yard free
style. Olympic swimmers he train-
ed were Alma Mann, who starred in
the 1924 Olympics; Adelaide Lam-
bert, the 1928 Olympics, and Jose-
phine McKim, the 1928 and the 1932
Mr. Grieser also took an early in-
terest in the aquatic treatment of
polio and arthritis and in teaching
swimming to the blind.
He retired from Panama Canal
service in 1949 after 32 years' serv-
ice. For 5 years afterward he was
swimming adviser in Ann Arbor,
Mich., and then went to Ireland to
Mr. Grieser's letter to Governor
Fleming was accompanied by clip-
pings from Cork newspapers cover-

Six Who Ran by M. E. Chaber is
a new Milo March adventure tale.
According to The New Yorker, Cha-
ber in this latest mystery shows once
more that his hero, Milo March is
"shrewd, solitary, a hard drinker,
and splendidly male-knows how,
and Milo never gives up." His ad-
mirers will enjoy Milo's latest suc-
The title of Strangers on a Bridge
by James B. Donovan refers to the
exchange in 1962 on Berlin's Glie-
nicker Bridge of the former Russian
master spy Col. Rudolf Ivanovich
Abel for Francis Gary Powers the
U.S. U-2 pilot. Donovan, who
was appointed to defend Colonel
Abel, also negotiated the exchange.
This is the true account of perhaps
the greatest spy story of our genera-
tion. Donovan's use of verbatim re-
ports and of diaries and other notes
results in fascinating reading.
This Rough Magic is a novel by
Mary Stewart, author of The Moon-
Spinners. The scene of this one is
Corfu, believed to have been the
magic island which Shakespeare de-
scribed in The Tempest. True-to-
form actors and other bright lights
of the theatrical world abound in
this novel and there is plenty of
drama, violence and romance.
Loyalty is My Honour by Ewan
Butler is a novel which dramatizes
the life of the son of a Junker officer
Udo von Effling. The story is told

by an English friend of the family
and traces the life of the boy through
World War I, the shocking days
when he became a rising follower of
Hitler and his survival to become
an industrialist and politician. But-
ler was in Berlin at the beginning of
World War II and met several of
the supporting figures in this book
-including Heydrich, Hitler and
Goring. His most recent book was
Amateur Agent.
The Clouded Sky is an intriguing
novel by John Iggulden who is con-
sidered by many critics as "the most
compelling of Australian writers."
This is a many-faceted novel written
in the first person-a device which
allows Iggulden's leading character,
Ritchie Harrington, to give a per-
sonal account of his obsession-glid-
ing in his sail plane, Virago. The
description of his sensations as his
plane rose and soared high above the
earth in this exhilarating and dan-
gerous sport is powerful, explicit
and poetic. This is an interesting
and worthwhile novel by a good
new writer.
Mark of Murder, a new mystery
by Dell Shannon features his fam-
ous detective Lt. Luis Mendoza of
the Los Angeles Police Department
(Homicide) and his confr6res. This
is exciting in the Dell Shannon fash-
ion and will surely please his ad-

Henry J. Grieser of Crosshaven, County Cork, Ireland, looks through the
official Panama Canal 50th Anniversary book sent him by Canal Zone
Governor Fleming. Mr. Grieser was presented his retirement certificate
April 24, 1949 by Governor Newcomer on a day designated "Coach and
Mrs. Henry Grieser Honor Day."

Ever see a boat skeleton? Well, here's the framework of the Panama Canal launch "Lark" under construction

Useful Rules to Help You

Do an Outstanding Job

It takes some of us many years
-some a lifetime- to learn that most
useful rules on doing a better job
are so deceptively simple as to escape
We often tend to wave aside the
simplest things as lacking in deep
and profound significance.
Anyone who takes the time to heed
the following very simple suggestions,
however, should have 10 fewer
obstacles before him in pursuit of
success on the job. These tips may
be hard to follow, but they are easy
to understand:
1. Do one thing at a time. Remem-
ber, no man can do more. Two things
at a time or three things at a time
are less than one thing at a time.
Here mathematics stands confounded,
for here always-more is less.
2. Know the problem. Much time
is skillfully wasted by people trying
to find the answer when they really
don't understand the problem. Be
sure you have a clear (and agreed
upon) description of the problem first.
3. Learn to listen. Some people
seem to go through their entire lives
without hearing anything but the
sound of their own voices. No one
has a monopoly on good ideas, so
listen! Open your ears before you
open your mouth-it may open your
4. Learn to ask questions. Do
you approach problems with a pre-
conceived notion of the answer? This
may be quite satisfying to the ego,
but seldom to solution of the problem
at hand. Make a point to ask questions
if only to double check your position.
5. Distinguish sense from nonsense.
A writer has expounded brilliantly on
the "inexorable and ineluctable right-
ness of wrongness," and so great is
his magic, you half-believe him. You
know the kind. Away from his mag-
netic presence, however, you begin
to wonder if he half-believes it. If it
takes a 5-page memo to explain or
justify 25 words of text, take a
second look.
6. Accept change as inevitable.
Heraclitus said that "no man can
step in the same river twice." Not
only does the river change, but the
man himself changes as well. Every
iob is subject to change. Beware of
the pat solution. A rule good enough

10 years ago-or even 1 year ago-
may not be good enough today.
7. Admit your mistakes. It is a
great temptation to rationalize our
mistakes into a towering edifice built
on a foundation of words. No matter
how glittering the fabrication, there
is the inevitable risk that someone
else will see through it. Build on a
foundation of reality-or you will
not be building at all.
8. Be simple. Studies show that
big, complicated words cloud com-
munication. Five- or six-syllable
words depress readers and may not
communicate, but serve only to in-
flate the writer's ego. Use words as
if you were charged 5 cents for every
one. Look what less than 1,000

"Isn't that the fellow we delivered
a blowtorch to this morning?"

words, properly used, can say-The
Lord's Prayer, 23d Psalm, Preamble
to the Constitution, Gettysburg
Address, and the Boy Scout Oath.
9. Be calm. Sensible and sound
opinions are seldom reached in a
frenzy. Judgment and maturity are
more likely to thrive in a contem-
plative atmosphere than a hurricane.
Once you depart from calmness, you
risk confusion and chaos.
10. Smile. Effective workers are
usually serious, but the best try not
to show it too much. One of the com-
monest failures of many employees
is loss of perspective. After arduously
scaling the molehill, we plant our
success flag triumphantly at its crest,
proclaiming it to be greater than

Mount Everest. We can take our-
selves too seriously.

U.S. Marshal

Day is Noted

In CZ Court

A proclamation by the President
of the United States of America,
read in the U.S. District Courts in
the Canal Zone, this week proclaims
Thursday, September 24, as "United
States Marshal Day." Federal courts,
Federal department agencies, bar
associations and other civic groups,
and members of the bar and other
interested individuals are called upon
to provide public recognition for
the 175 years of devoted public
service performed by U.S. marshals
and their staffs. The man who wears
the U.S. marshal's star in Canal Zone
is Clayburne A. McLelland.
President Lyndon B. Johnson, in
a talk to the U.S. marshals, pointed
out that the Marshal's Service and
the U.S. Presidency are sharing a
common anniversary. The Judiciary
Act of 1789 provided for the ap-
pointment of U.S. marshals for each
of the 13 newly created Federal ju-
dicial districts.
"We still have only one President.
But where President Washington
nominated 13 United States .Mar-
shals, Presidents today nominate 91
of the 92 Marshals. The first task

Over half a century of Panama Canal service by Frank O. Eastmond (left), accounting clerk in the Payroll and
Machine Accounting Branch, was recognized with the presentation to him of a 50-year service award and an
Eminently Satisfactory Extended Service Award, accompanied by a check for $500. The presentations were made
by Canal Zone Governor Fleming and Panama Canal Comptroller Philip L. Steers, Jr., (right) as Mrs. Eastmond
proudly looked on.



Frank O. Eastmond, accounting
clerk in the Panama Canal Payroll
and Machine Accounting Branch,
who was first employed as a clerk
in the Schools Division on Septem-
ber 25, 1911, was presented a 50-
year service award and an Eminent-
ly Satisfactory Extended Service
Award by Canal Zone Governor
Fleming, and Philip L. Steers, Jr.,
Panama Canal Comptroller, at the
Payroll Branch Office, Ancon.
Eastmond, who was born in St. Mi-
chael, Barbados, on July 9, 1896,
came to the Isthmus with his parents.
His father, John W. Eastmond, was
a Canal Zone policeman who retir-
ed from the police force at the age
of 70.
"In 1911 they were still studying
the electrical system to be used to
operate the locks; over 16-million
cubic yards was excavated from Cu-

lebra Cut with 24-million to go; a
slide on the railroad buried over one
mile of track; President Taft issued
an order against bull fighting, dog
fighting, and cock fighting in the
Canal Zone; rice was selling for 30
a pound and pork for 180 in the
commissary; and an employee with
identification number 47461 wrote a
letter to the Director of Posts re-
questing a raise beyond his $25 a
month. That employee was Frank
Eastmond," said Comptroller Phi-
lip L. Steers, Jr., in his brief talk.
'Eastmond's work is very satisfactory
and he is worth more than he re-
ceives at present,' said a notation by
Crede Calhoun-and Eastmond got
his raise."
Canal Zone Governor Fleming
congratulated Eastmond on his many
years' service in the Panama Canal
organization. With the 50-year serv-

Canals in America

Were Vital Part of

Early Commerce

Man-made waterways fascinated
SAmericans long before 1914 and the
construction of the Panama Canal.
As early as 1754 George Washington,
then in his early twenties, tried his
hand at canal construction. He fos-
tered a system of river and canal nav-
igation along the Potomac Valley,
he Canal and it was largely through his efforts
g Officer that the Potomac Company was or-
on at the ganized in 1785 to carry out his plan.
In 1802 the Potomac Company ca-
nals were substantially completed,
but though the canals and locks of
the company were considered a great
engineering accomplishment, the im-
R provements to the Potomac River
.' channel were inadequate. In 1828,
| therefore, the success of the Erie
Canal and anxiety to enjoy a larger
share of trade with the West prompt-
ed the organization of the Chesa-
peake & Ohio Canal Co. Promoters
J in Maryland, Virginia, and the Dis-
trict of Columbia then planned a ca-
nal some 360 miles long to connect
Georgetown on the Potomac with
Pittsburgh on the Ohio.

Construction was formally begun
July 4, 1828. In 1831 water was
admitted into the first completed di-
vision and navigation on the water-
way was begun as the other divisions
were completed. Later, however,
due to increased costs and difficulties,
the section of canal which was to ex-
tend beyond Cumberland was aban-
doned. In 1850, when the last divi-
sion, to Cumberland, was finished,
canal boats carrlinn conal flnur

,mll u i L I,
grains, and lumber were plentiful on
t' C"hersjaaeak & Ohio Canal In

1924, however, loss of traffic caused

ETED its abandonment.
The Chesapeake & Ohio Canal,
V I C E 184.5 miles long on completion, is
L no longer a useful waterway for com-
ice certificate and the Eminently Sa- mercial traffic. It was purchased by
tisfactory Extended Service Award, the Federal Government in 1938
Eastmond was presented a check for and now occupies a narrow right-of-
$500 and a key to the locks.. That
is, the check for $500 was made out
to Eastmond but Governor Fleming, A rt
with a smile, handed it to Mrs. East- t S
mond together with her own key to

the locks.
Eastmond, deeply moved, express-
ed his appreciation for the honor
shown him on this occasion.
Panama Canal organization offi-
cials present at the ceremony, other
than Governor Fleming and Comp-
troller Steers, included Edward A.
Doolan, Director of the Personnel
Bureau; Arthur J. O'Leary, Deputy
Comptroller; Malcolmn A. Johnston,
Jr., chief of the Payroll and Machine
Accounting Branch; and Russel J.
Jones, chief accountant.
Eastmond was employed as a mes-
senger in the Sanitation Department
in late 1911 when his boss was Col.
W. C. Gorgas; and in the past half-
century served as clerk, messenger,
salesman, laborer, office helper, and
control clerk. He has been with the
Payroll Branch since 1950.
Mr. and Mrs. Eastmond, who re-
side in Gamboa, are the parents of
six children: Gwendoline E. Shirley,
wife of the Venerable Lemuel B.
Shirley of Panama City; Frank O.
Eastmond, employed by a steamship
agency here; Elsie F., Rosaline E.,
and Ervin M. Eastmond, who reside
and work in New York City; and
Leon I. Eastmond, who works in
Panama. All were born here and
attended school at La Boca.
Eastmond's hobby, which he still
pursues, is swimming. He first learn-
ed to swim in Barbados.

latest work at the Galleries of the
Panama Institute of Art, Plaza Urra-
ca, Panama City, beginning next
Wednesday, September 23.
Formal opening of the art exhibit
will be at 8 o'clock p.m. with the

amanian painter has held solo exhi-
bitions of her work in famous gal-
leries of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo
and Cabo Frio, in Brazil as well as

way consisting of 5,253 acres bought
by the Chesapeake & Ohio Co. be-
tween 1828 and 1850. The George-
town division of the canal, extending
22.1 miles between Georgetown, D.C.
and Seneca, Md., is a part of the
National Capital Parks administered
by the National Park Service of the
Department of the Interior. It is a
colorful tourist attraction for vaca-
tioners who find it ideally suited for
nature study.
At all seasons of the year the ca-
nal towpath serves as an easy access
to this outdoor laboratory. Park
naturalists, and historians frequently
conduct guided trips there. Many
species of birds and wildflowers are
abundant along the canal and the
stone in its structure and bedrock
exposed by construction tell fasci-
nating stories of earth history in the
Canoeing, boating hiking, fishing,
picnicking, and ice skating are
among the recreational facilities en-
joyed along the old canal. During
the summer, special conducted tours,
via an old-time mule-drawn barge,
are also available.

Vol. III, No. 13 50 Aios de Servicios . Para el Comercio Mundial Viernes 18 de Septiembre de 1964

Capitanes de Barcos Usuarios

Del Canal Hacen Comentarios

Sobre Facilidades y Servicios

"Despu6s de 40 afios en el mar, todavia consider al Canal de Panama el
servicio maritime mas eficiente del mundo", dijo el capitan del City of Phila-
delphia, un carguero britAnico que fue uno de los 1,002 clients comerciales del
Canal el mes pasado.
El comentario estaba entire los cientos recibidos por el Jefe de la Divisi6n
de Navegaci6n en respuesta a un cuestionario expedido por el Canal de Panama
a los capitanes de barcos que transitaron por el Canal durante el mes del Cin-
cuentenario. Se solicit a los capitanes hacer sugerencias para mejorar el servicio.

Las respuestas que se estAn reci-
biendo no son todas favorables para
los que operan la mis famosa via
acuitica del mundo. Se han regis-
trado quejas lo mismo que alaban-
zas de parte de los curtidos marine-
ros quienes, en todos los casos, con
una excepci6n, contestaron las pre-
guntas relacionadas con las instala-
ciones del Canal, en perfect ingl6s.
Los comentarios adversos se rela-
cionaban con problems de comuni-
caciones, necesidad de mejoramiento
de alumbrado portuario, facilidades
de anclaje en el sector AtlAntico y
demoras en el transito causado por
el inmenso trAfico.
Hubo algunas observaciones sobre
ocasionales brotes de temperament
de parte de la tripulaci6n de un bar-
co y el personal del Canal de Pana-
ma al final de una dura jornada.
Este estado de cosas no fue toma-
do seriamente y "desaparecio por lo
general despues de una buena comi-
da", dijo un capitfn frances quien
filos6ficamente insinu6 que los pro-
blemas eran causados por la diferen-
cia en el idioma, political y aduanas.
El cuestionario cubria tales temas
como sefiales para la navegaci6n, co-
municaciones, facilidades de aborda-
je, sugerencias para el mejoramiento
del manejo de avituallamiento y de
abastecimiento de combustible, y
condiciones generals de transito y
manejo de la carga.
De mil cuestionarios expedidos se

Medio Siglo

de Servicios

han recibido centenares de vuelta;
diariamente llegan muchas contesta-
ciones mis.
Algunos de los Capitanes se que-
jan del cimulo de papeles requeri-
dos. Otros manifiestan que su tarea
se facilitaria enormemente si en otros
puertos hubiera eficiencia similar.
Un Capitan se dolia de que el
prActico desoy6 sus explicaciones so-
bre las peculiaridades de su nave
y vio con malos ojos que abollasen
el casco en las esclusas. Otro dijo
que los practices eran muy corteses,
de magnifico buen humor y era un
placer tenerlos abordo.
Un Capitan sugiri6 que las "mu-
las" del Canal fuesen pintadas de
"anaranjado international" o alg6n
color chill6n para que fuese mis
fAcil determinar su rumbo, sin peli-
gro de que se confundiesen con el
paisaje y se perdiesen de vista. Otro
sugiri6 cambios en los itinerarios y
mejores facilidades de informaci6n
anticipada a los capitanes de naves.
El client mis entusiasta dijo que
61 otorgaria el primer premio al Ca-
nal de Panama en cada caso y que
el transito se realize aqui con la
mayor celeridad y eficiencia. Se ma-
nifiesta igualmente bien impresiona-
do con la falta de formalidades ex-
cesivas y la forma expedita como se
ejecuta el trinsito de barcos por las
esclusas. Tomando todo en consi-
deraci6n dijo que "el Canal de Pa-
nama era un suefio que se habia
hecho realidad".

La sugerencia mAs definitive fue
la del CapitAn que declar6 "Creo
que el trnnsito de una nave de oc6a-
no a oc6ano seria much mas rApi-
do y seguro si el Canal pudiese
hacerse a nivel del mar".

La seiiorita Della Sayles fue la ga-
nadora del concurso para Reina de
la Banda de la Escuela Secundaria
de Rainbow City, cuyo iltimo escru-
tinio se celebro el viernes 11 de este
mes en el gimnasio del plantel. La
sefiorita Sayles serd coronada el mes
prdximo en el gimnasio de la escuela.
Ella recibio un total de 15,684 votos
y fue seguida por Vilda Howell con

Las vias acuAticas construidas por el hombre fascinaron a los norte-
americanos much antes de 1914, y la construcci6n de la "Gran Zanja" en
PanamA. Ya para 1754 George Washington, entonces en sus veintitantos
afios, hizo el esfuerzo de construir un canal local. Foment6 un sistema de
navegaci6n fluvial y de canal a lo largo del Valle Potomac, y fue conside-
rablemente debido a sus esfuerzos que la Compaiia Potomac se organize
en 1785 para Ilevar adelante su plan.

Los canales de la Compafiia Poto-
mac quedaron terminados en 1802,
pero aunque se realize una gran
obra de ingenieria en los canales y
esclusas de la compafiia, las mejoras
al canal del Rio Potomac resultaron
inadecuadas. Por lo tanto, en 1828,
el 6xito del Canal de Erie y el an-
helo de participar en el comercio en
mayor escala con el occidente, hicie-
ron former la organizaci6n de la Che-
sapeake and Ohio Canal Company.
Los promotores en Maryland, Virgi-
nia, y el Distrito de Columbia pla-
nearon entonces un canal de unas
360 millas de extension para unir a

Georgetown en el Potomac con
Pittsburgh en Ohio.
La construcci6n se inici6 for-
malmente el 4 de julio de 1828. El
agua fue admitida en 1831 en la
primera division terminada y la na-
vegaci6n en la via acuAtica se inici6
cuando las otras divisions quedaron
terminadas. MAs tarde, sin embargo,
debido al aumento de costs y difi-
cultades, la secci6n del canal que
iba a extenderse mAs alli de Cum-
berland, fue abandonada. En 1850,
cuando la Altima division hasta Cum-
berland fue terminada, abundaron
las embarcaciones canaleras llevan-

do carb6n, harina, granos y madera
por el Canal de Chesapeake y Ohio.
En 1924, sin embargo, la p6rdida de
trifico caus6 su abandon.
El Canal de Chesapeake y Ohio,
de 184.5 millas de extension al com-
pletarse, no es ltil ya para el trifi-
co maritime commercial. Fue com-
prado por el Gobierno Federal en
1938 y ocupa ahora un pequefio de-
recho de servidumbre que consiste
en 5,253 acres comprados por la
Compania del Canal de Chesapeake
y Ohio entire 1828 y 1850. La divi-
si6n del canal en Georgetown, que
se extiende 22.1 millas entire George-
town, D.C. y Seneca, Maryland, es
una parte de los Parques Nacionales
de la Capital administrados por el
Servicio de Parques Nacionales del
Departamento de lo Interior. Es
una gran atracci6n turistica para los
que estin de vacaciones quienes en-
cuentran el lugar adecuado para el
studio de la naturaleza.
