24-Hour Outage

Locks Overhaul

Will Get Test I t

The first Panama Canal locks over-
haul using the 24-hour locks outage
concept will be tried out on an
experimental basis at Miraflores
Locks in January.
The procedure, which eventually
is expected to bring the time that
the locks lane is actually out of
service to 24 hours, will involve the

Mere "Thanks" Inadequate
For UF Appeal Response
"Considering that $175,000 has been contributed to the Canal Zone
United Fund in a drive where the dollar goal was $142,500, a mere
'thanks' is obviously inadequate," Governor Fleming, President of the
United Fund, said this week.
"With most of the agencies going well over the top, the flood of
contributions proved that the fine response has been community-wide,
among both our U.S. and our non-U.S. citizens.
"I certainly acknowledge that the officials, keymen, and every strata
of volunteer worker in the United Fund have done a fine job. But I want
to express gratitude particularly to those basically responsible for the
great success of this 1964 campaign-to those who gave so generously

The Pied Piper has nothing on Neil Branstetter, retiring Supervisor of Music in the Canal Zone Division of Schools,
who fascinates a classroom full of second graders with a lively rendition of "Pop Goes the Weasel." Branstetter
made this final call on the pupils of Alice Clark and Peggy Aiker at Los Rios shortly before his retirement.

For Music Supervisor...

Neil V. Branstetter, Supervisor of
Music in the Canal Zone Schools and
coordinator of the program of music
instruction in the entire Canal Zone
school system, retired from Canal
service yesterday after completing 27
years and 2 months with the Zone
He was honored at a retirement
party by the Canal Zone Division of
Schools last Saturday evening, when
a host of friends gathered at the
Tivoli Guest House Ballroom. A high-
light was music by members of all
the College and Community Chorus
groups he had ever conducted in the
years he was on the Isthmus, and as
a climax he was asked to conduct
once again.
Branstetter came to the Canal
Zone from Coffeyville, Kans., in Sep-
tember 1937 to become the first full-
time secondary music teacher in the
Zone schools. He taught music in
Balboa High School for 14 years and
organized choruses, orchestras, and

held until his retirement. In addition
to his many duties, he began Saturday
classes in instrumental music for
elementary grades and taught private
instrumental lessons from 1937 to
From the beginning, Branstetter
was interested in developing and
building a music program in the
Canal Zone schools, grades 1 through
Junior College, an ambition he saw
come true.
Branstetter entered into and sup-
ported civic and professional activi-
ties in the Canal Zone and in the
Republic of Panama.
He conducted the College and
Community Chorus in the Canal
Zone for 22 years. During this

Swan Song

period he did all the major oratorios.
He gave performances in the Uni-
versity of Panama and the Panama
National Theater. One of the per-
formances he especially likes to recall
is The Messiah which he gave in 1941
in the Old Cathedral in Old Panama.
Branstetter is a charter member of
the Panama Symphony. He is affil-
iated with the Balboa Union Church
and has directed its choir at various

morning by PAA to join Mrs. Bran-

beside Eastman, was his wife. This
was her first visit to her husband's
place of employment.
Captain Prince noted that Eastman
started working for the Panama Canal
Supply Division October 21, 1914,
at 17 years of age. "He didn't stay
with them long and I can't blame
him . they were only paying 10

Governor Fleming commended
Eastman for 50 years of loyal service
"always doing a man's job" and pre-
sented him a 50-year service award.
Next came presentation of an Emi-

Award, and presentation of a key to

Governor Fleming announced he
had still one more presentation to
make, a check for $500, representing
$10 for every year of Eastman's Canal

From Panama's

First Lady ...
Panama's First Lady, Mrs. Petita
SaA de Robles, has sent a personal
letter of thanks to Frank Hirt of the
Canal Zone Postal Service who took
up a collection among his fellow
postal workers in Gamboa for the
benefit of the Panamanian families
left homeless and practically destitute
as a consequence of a disastrous fire
in Panama City last October.
"It is with great pleasure that
I convey to you my deepest thanks
for the donation of $62 that you per-
sonally delivered on behalf of the
Canal Zone Postal Service as a con-
tribution for the victims of the Ancon
Avenue fire disaster," Mrs. Robles
The October fire destroyed a city
block in Panama City's crowded
Chorrillo district.

About Alcohol ...
Dangerous Misconceptions

* Alcohol is a stimulant. Just the
opposite-it's a depressant. The tem-
porary "lift" is caused by the depress-
ant acting to loosen mental controls.
But the "life of the party" will soon
slow down, perhaps pass out cold, if
he keeps on drinking.

S. And from the Red Cross

Appreciation for the contributions
of money, food, and clothing received
for the victims of the recent fire in
Panama from residents of the Canal
Zone has been expressed by the Canal
Zone Chapter of the American Red
A recent check for $97.83, repre-
senting cash contributions from a
number of Canal Zone organizations
and groups has been presented by

the Canal Zone Chapter to Mrs. Mag-
dalena Conte de Duque, Secretary
General of the Panama Red Cross.
Those who contributed to this fund
included the cargo clerks and
checkers, Pier 18 Terminals Division,
$30.50; Canal Zone Bus Service, Inc.,
$25; Industrial Division in Balboa,
$12; Motor Transportation, $20.33;

Six Cristobal High School gridders
won berths on the 1964 All-Zone
football team, with two of them-
quarterback Orin Clement and end
Jack Blair-unanimous selections.
Also a unanimous selection was
Bob Boatwright, Canal Zone College
end, who was joined by 3 other CZC
players on the select 11.
Joe Coffin, SDAC tackle, who also
won one of the coveted All-Zone team
spots, set several records in his selec-
tion. He is the first player to be
selected from three teams: CHS in
'61-'62; CZC in '62-'63 and '63-'64,
and SDAC this year. He also is the
first player to be selected four times.
Also repeat All-Zoners are Boat-
wright, Clement, and Ed Wilder,
CZC tackle. Wilder was a '62-'63
and '63-'64 selection, Boatwright was

previously chosen in '62-'63, and
Clement is a repeater from last season.
Although size of All-Zone players
is not recorded, Clement could well
have earned the distinction of being
the smallest player ever selected
2 years in a row. Coach Doug Litton
of CHS said of his star quarterback,
"If he eats heavy and works light,
he could reach 130 pounds this year."
Larry Horlne, Supervisor of Phys-
ical Education and Athletics for U.S.
Schools, reported the selection com-
mittee of coaches had to ballot a
second time to break ties for the
selections for guard and center

English suspense tale by Julian

Speak Not Evil, by Edwin Lanham,
is a novel about the townspeople of
a Connecticut tidal village whose pre-

Col. Roosevelt Cafarelli, Canal Zone Health Bureau Director, right, by
Col. Ellis E. Pickering, Engineering and Construction Bureau Director, in
a brief ceremony marking the completion of the multimillion-dollar building.
Construction of the highest building in the Canal Zone was begun in 1961
and its completion will result in a revamping of the hospital plant. Final
inspection was made early in November and the building accepted by the
Panama Canal from the Robert R. Prann Contracting Co. of San Juan, P.R.
Plans are being made to have the annex in operation early in 1965.

Zitzmann was Mrs. Frederick Brown,
president of the Balboa Woman's
Due to the combined efforts of the

In addition to the Balboa Women's
Club, among other groups that play
"Santa" are the NCO and Officer's
Wives Clubs from Albrook, Fort
Amador, Fort Clayton, Howard, Fort

Locks Overhaul
(Continued from p. 1)
This procedure is being developed
for routine overhaul of gates and
chamber installations in order to
reduce the time that the lane is ac-
tually out of service to the minimum,
with a goal set at 24 hours.
The first overhaul of this type is
being carried out at Miraflores, since
this is the only set of locks in which
the necessary modifications have been
made to permit the use of the
caissons. These modifications were
installed during regular locks over-
haul in 1963 and consist of quoin
cofferdam seats or finished concrete
surfaces against which rubber seals
of moveable cofferdams fit snugly.
Using this procedure, the locks
chambers will not be drained for as
long as 20 years, except in emergency
repair situations.
The 24-hour locks outage concept
is part of the long-range plans to
increase the capacity of the Panama
Canal by reducing the time that any
lock lane is out of operation because
of overhaul.
The Industrial Division, working
with the Locks Division forces on
the Miraflores overhaul, is expected
to hire approximately 125 temporary

Medio Siglo de Servicios al PanCanal

Tienen su Recompensa Para Eastman

"Aqui tienen esto . ." dijo el Gobernador de la Zona del Canal, Robert J. Fleming, Jr., al entregarle a Mrs. Letha
Eastman un cheque por $500, librado a favor de su esposo, Byron D. Eastman (izquierda) quien lleva medio siglo
de trabajar para el Canal de PanamA. Byron operator de teletipo en Miraflores, sostiene en sus manos el certificado
de 50 afios de servicios y el del Premio por Servicios Prolongados y Eminentemente Satisfactorios que le fue otor-
gado por el Gobernador Fleming junto con una Llave Maestra de las Esclusas. A la derecha aparece el Capitin
Mortimer J. Prince, Armada de Estados Unidos, y Director de Marina. Los esposos Eastman viven en Paraiso.

Las operaciones de las Esclusas de
Miraflores se suspendieron breve-
mente un dia de la semana pasada.
Todos los empleados se reunieron en
el Edificio de Control, para honrar
a uno de sus compafieros en sencilla
ceremonia. Se trataba de Byron D.
Eastman, native de Barbados, el em-
pleado mAs antiguo de la Divisi6n
de Esclusas y que ha estado al ser-
vicio del Canal de PanamA durante
los 61timos 50 afios.
Fue dia de jdibilo en el Edificio de
Control de Miraflores. Alli estaban el
Gobernador de la Zona del Canal,
Robert J. Fleming, Jr.; el Capitin
Mortimer J. Prince, USN, Director
de Marina; y Edward A. Doolan,
Director de Personal. W. A. Van
Siclen, Jefe de la Divisi6n de Esclusas
y otros altos funcionarios de esa divi-
si6n. Luciendo orgullosa desde un
asiento al lado de su esposo, la Sra.
Eastman efectuaba su primera visit
a las esclusas.
El CapitAn Prince describi6 c6mo
el Sr. Eastman comenz6 a trabajar

en la Divisi6n de Abastos del Canal
de PanamA el 21 de octubre de 1914,
a los 17 afios. Agreg6: "No lo culpo
por haber permanecido poco tiempo
con ellos, ya que en aquel tiempo
solo pagaban 10 centavos por hora."
DespuBs Eastman trabaj6 en la Divi-
si6n de MecAnica hasta el 7 de di-
ciembre de 1916, cuando fue trans-
ferido a la Divisi6n de Esclusas en
la que se encuentra trabajando desde
entonces, hace ya 48 afios. "Cuenta
con un historical sin macula y una
hoja de servicios eminentemente sa-
tisfactoria, por su devoci6n al trabajo
y su eficiencia en el desempefio de
sus funciones," aiiadi6 el CapitAn
Prince. "Nos enorgullece, Sr. East-
man, el tenerlo con nosotros."
El Gobernador Fleming alab6 a
Eastman por sus 50 afios de consa-
graci6n al trabajo haciendao siempre
una labor de hombre" y le entreg6
el diploma de 50 afios de servicios,
junto con la Llave de las Esclusas y
otro mis por sus magnificos servicios.
El Gobernador Fleming anunci6

que tenia algo mAs que darle y era
un cheque por $500, 10 por cada
afio de servicio prestados al Canal
por Eastman, que le fue entregado
junto con otra Llave de las Esclusas,
a la Sra. Eastman.
La ceremony termin6 con breves
palabras de W. A. Van Siclen, Jr.,
Jefe de la Divisi6n de Esclusas.
El Sr. Eastman naci6 en Christ
Church, Barbados, el 21 de mayo de
1897. Lleg6 al Istmo el 5 de marzo
de 1913 y su servicio fue esporAdico
hasta el 7 de diciembre de 1916,
cuando entr6 a trabajar como arte-
sano en la Divisi6n de Esclusas. Ha
estado en las Esclusas de Miraflores
desde 1936 y en 1959 fue promovido
a su present posici6n de operator
de teletipo. Le toca recibir y despa-
char informaci6n, colocar tal infor-
maci6n en tableros para ser usada por
los maestros de esclusas, operadores
de control y supervisors de opera-
clones en el desempefio de sus tareas
relacionadas con el transito de las
naves por las esclusas.




Dar Solo las Gracias

Seria Muy Inadecuado
"Si se toma en consideraci6n que se aportaron $175,000 hacia
el Fondo Unido de la Zona del Canal, cuando la meta que se habia
fijado alcanzaba a $142,500, pareciera que dar meramente las
"gracias" result obviamente inadecuado," coment6 la semana
pasada el Gobernador Robert J. Fleming, Jr., Presidente del
Fondo Unido.
"Vista que la mayoria de las dependencias sobrepasaron las
cuantias que de ellas eran esperadas, la avalanche de contribucio-
nes denota que se ha respondido en un Ambito comunal, tanto entire
los ciudadanos estadounidenses cuanto en los que no lo son.
"Reconozco definitivamente que los funcionarios y represen-
tantes, asi como los voluntarios que aportaron su esfuerzo a la
campafia del Fondo Unido, han realizado una gran labor. Pero
deseo particularmente extender mi reconocimiento a quienes son
basicamente responsables por el gran 6xito de la campaiia de
1964-aquellos que donaron tan generosamente al Fondo Unido
de la Zona del Canal."
Mientras que los jefes de varias dependencias de la Zona del
Canal felicitaban a sus empleados, el Gobernador Fleming sonreia
complacido de ver que la organizaci6n del Canal de PanamA habia
superado su meta con 154 por ciento, habiendo contribuido con
$114,000 cuando se le habia asignado una meta de $73,800.

La primera limpieza y reacondi-
cionamiento de esclusas del Canal
de PanamA usando el plan de 24
horas para dar paso por las esclusas,
se harA como experiment en las
Esclusas de Miraflores durante el mes
de enero.
El procedimiento por medio del
cual se espera que las vias de las
esclusas est6n fuera de servicio sola-
mente durante 24 horas, consistirA en
levantar de sus pernos dos de las
compuertas de la via del este y lle-
varlas al Dique Seco de Balboa para
su limpieza y reacondicionamiento.
Las compuertas serAn levantadas
por la gr6a flotante HIrcules de 250
toneladas, despu6s de lo cual serAn
colocadas- en posici6n horizontal y
remolcadas hasta Balboa. Las pesadas
compuertas estAn seccionadas y son
tan flotantes que no existe difi-
cultad alguna para removerlas de las
Las compuertas seran colocadas en

Calida Despedida

Dan a Branstetter
Neil V. Branstetter, director de
misica de las escuelas de la Zona del
Canal y coordinator del program
de ensefianza musical en todo el sis-
tema escolar zoneita, se jubil6 des-
pu6s de 27 afios y 2 meses de servicio.
Con tal motivo un grupo de amigos
le agasaj6 el sAbado en la noche con
una fiesta de despedida en la Casa
de HuBspedes Tivoli.
La nota culminante del acto con-
sisti6 en el presentado por miembros
de coros colegiales y de las comu-
nidades que Branstetter habia diri-
gido durante sus afios de servicio en
el Istmo.
El homenajeado lleg6 aqui proce-
dente de Coffeyville, Kansas, en sep-
tiembre de 1937 para asumir las atri-
buciones de maestro de misica en
las escuelas de la Zona. Durante 14
afios ensefi6 m6sica en la Escuela
Secundaria de Balboa, organizando
coros musicales, orquestas y bandas
como parte del program corriente de
los planteles.
En 1951 fue ascendido a director
de m6sica, cargo que ocup6 hasta el
moment de su jubilaci6n.
De 1937 a 1963 inici6 classes de
m6sica instrumental para grades ele-
mentales y dio classes privadas de lo
AdemAs de lo apuntado Branstetter
actu6 en la Universidad de PanamA y
en el Teatro Nacional de PanamA.

de la Sinf6nica de PanamA.

de limpieza en el dique seco de
Balboa. Esto tomarA unas 3 semanas,
despu6s de lo cual serAn devueltas a
Miraflores y colocadas en sus pernos.
Mientras las compuertas permanez-
can en el dique seco, encofrados es-
peciales seran colocados en los nichos
del aforador y puestos contra la pared
de las esclusas. Los obreros podrAn
reparar el montaje de los pernos y
recuadros de apoyo en la pared de
las esclusas detrAs de estos encofra-
dos mientras la via est6 en uso. Los
encofrados construidos para este fin
por la Divisi6n Industrial sobresalen
8 pies hacia la cdmara de esclusas y
son protegidos por defenses especia-
les. Mientras la limpieza se efect6a,
el uso de la camara de esclusas serA
limitado a barcos de menos de 70 pies
de manga.
Este procedimiento ha sido des-
arrollado para la limpieza rutinaria
de las compuertas y las instalaciones
de las cAmaras con el objeto de redu-
cir al minimo el tiempo que la via
estara fuera de servicio, con una meta
fijada en 24 horas.
La primer limpieza de este tipo
se llevarA a cabo en Mirafloresporque
este es el inico juego de esclusas en
el cual las modificaciones necesarias
se han hecho para permitir el uso de
los encofrados. Estas modificaciones
fueron instaladas durante la limpieza
regular de 1963 y consistent en asien-
tos de los cimientos o superficies de
concrete recabado contra los cuales
se han ajustado de forma exacta aisla-
dores de caucho de cimientos movi-
bles. Usando este procedimiento, las
camaras de las esclusas no serAn va-
ciadas por un period de 20 aiios,
con excepci6n de reparaciones de
urgencia que se presented.
El plan de 24 horas para dar paso
por las esclusas es parte de planes
de largo alcance para aumentar la
capacidad del Canal de PanamA redu-
ciendo el tiempo que cualquier via
de las esclusas pueda star fuera de
operaci6n debido a la limpieza.
Se espera que la Divisi6n Indus-
trial, que trabaja con la Divisi6n de
Esclusas en la limpieza y reacondi-
cionamiento de Miraflores, emplee
aproximadamente 125 empleados

Uno de los vapores mis moderos
e interesantes de la Flota Mercante
Alemana, la motonave de refrigera-
ci6n Polarlicht, ha sido entregada por
los astilleros Blohm und Voss (Ham-
burgo) a la empresa naviera Ham-
burg-Siidamerikanische Dampfschiff-
fahrtsgesellschaft (Hamburg-Siid).
La nueva embarcaci6n, que tiene
4,858 toneladas de registro bruto y
una velocidad de servicio de 22 nudos
-la mAs alta entire los barcos mer-
cantes alemanes-es calificada por los
experts, a causa de su gran auto-
matizaci6n, de "un salto gigantesco en
la via hacia la future automatizaci6n
total de los mandos."
El Polarlicht estA dotado de insta-
laciones de mAquinas, refrigeraci6n
y mantenimiento del motor principal
completamente automAticos. El me-
canismo automAtico funciona electr6-
nicamente, desde el puente, haciendo
possible las maniobras de la mAquina
principal, cuya potencia llega a los
10,800 caballos.
Un registro de comandos indica
cada una de las 6rdenes que se trans-
miten desde el puente. Luego una
instalaci6n de supervision de funcio-
namiento marca por medio de "mi-
quinas escritoras de diario" los datos

mAs importantes de la march y con-
trola permanentemente, ademas, las
desviaciones de los valores limits.
En caso de surgir perturbaciones, el
mecanismo automatico indica su
gnero y procedencia.
Todos los mecanismos automAticos
y electr6nicos funcionan en un mismo
puesto de direcci6n, desde el cual
se conduce la nave. Las ocho bode-
gas frigorificas del Polarlicht pueden
atemperarse por separado, segin lo
exijan las mercancias transportadas;
una reguladora electr6nica mantiene
el nivel de temperature constant en
las bodegas, con una exactitud de un
d&cimo de grado.
La amplia automatizaci6n a bordo
de la motonave incrementa conside-
rablemente su rentabilidad, favore-
ciendo asi a la naviera. De acuerdo
con datos suministrados por la Ham-
burg-Siid, se puede, gracias a las
nuevas instalaciones, reducir el per-
sonal, al tiempo que se aligera el tra-
bajo a bordo y aumenta la seguridad
del funcionamiento. La tripulaci6n
del Polarlicht consta solo de 17 hom-
bres, es decir, 6 menos de los que
require una nave semejante sin la
automatizaci6n introducida.
