24-Hour Outage Concept


To Start at

The first overhaul of miter gates
under the 24-hour lock lane outage
concept will start Monday at Mira-
flores Locks. The gate leaves will be
unhinged, lifted out by the floating
crane Hercules, and taken to the
Balboa drydock for overhaul.
Cofferdams will be placed in the
chamber so that the work may be
accomplished without unwatering
and completely taking the lane out
of service.
Approximately 350 extra em-
ployees will be required by the In-
dustrial Division and Locks Division
for the job.
The work starting Monday will be
on gates 112 and 113, the north pair
in the east lane by the control house
at Miraflores Locks.
Except for the time required for
lifting out and replacing the miter
gates, the east lane will be limited
to vessels of 70-foot beam until about
February 6.
The east lane will be out of service
for three short periods of approxi-
mately 24 to 48 hours during which
relay lockages will be handled in the
west lane, if necessary. These are

(c d ~44I e


scheduled Monday and again on
January 21 and February 4.
After completion of the work at
Miraflores Locks, the periodic over-
haul of Pedro Miguel Locks will
begin February 14, with a comple-
tion date of April 17. These dates
still are tentative.
From February 14 through March
6, the west lane is to be taken out of
service, after which the east lane
will be taken out of service until
March 27, when overhaul of the cen-
ter-wall culvert will begin. During
single lane operation, two culverts
will be in use from February 14 to
March 27.

7 Canal Employees Get

Presidential Citations

Seven Panama Canal employees
each received a Presidential Citation
for Economy Achievement during an
awards ceremony held in the Board
Room of the Administration Building,
Balboa Heights. This award, pres-
ented for the first time, is part of a

Cristobal Branch

Personnel Office

To Open Monday
More convenient personnel serv-
ices for Panama Canal employees on
the Atlantic side of the Isthmus will
result from establishment of a Cris-
tobal Branch Office of the Personnel
Bureau Monday. It will be located
in the Cristobal Administration
Atlantic siders are extended an
invitation to visit and become
acquainted with the employees and
services of the branch, of which
Marion R. Bell will be supervisor.
Telephone numbers will be 3-1288
and 3-1289 for the Employment and
Placement Section; 3-2462 and
3-2739 for the Wage and Classifica-
tion Section; 3-1579 for the per-
sonnel officer and retirement clerk;
3-2118 for the debt counselor, and
3-1229 for the induction clerk.
The new office is a branch of the
Operations Division of the Per-
sonnel Bureau, under Gordon M.
Frick, Deputy Personnel Director.
Proximity to field offices on the
Atlantic side is expected to eliminate
much of the travel time which has
been necessary in the past in han-
dling of some personnel matters.

U.S. Government-wide program to
mark the 10th year of the Fed-
eral Employees' Incentive Awards
The award is honorary and is in
the form of a distinctive Presidential
Citation bearing the Great Seal of
the United States, President John-
son's signature and the signature of
Canal Zone Governor Robert J.
Fleming. The citation reads: "In
special recognition of an outstanding
contribution to greater economy and
improvement in Government opera-
tions during the 10th anniversary

Three Panama Canal pilots, Cap-
tains Robin L. Erixon, Irving G. Hay,
and W. A. Heinheimer received the
Presidential citation for a joint sug-
gestion for an hydraulic assist method
of floating vessels out of the lock
The other four employees who
received these citations were: James
A. Brooks, whose suggestion con-
cerned the use of assigned personnel
in checking freight at the Cristobal
piers; John M. Klasovsky, who sug-
gested an alternate solution to the
design for the locks' miter gate valve
interlock system; Richard D. Pea-
cock, who suggested converting the
Panama Canal Review from a month-
ly to a quarterly publication; and
Joseph M. Watson, who suggested
reproduction of repetitive typing by
using a verifax offset adapter.

Fort Davis Students Part

Of Weather Report Network

"This is the Fort Davis School and
I have an overnight reading of 0.10
of an inch of rain," reports a child's
voice over the telephone to the Cris-
tobal Hydrographic Office.
The report comes from the Fort
Davis weather station, located at the
Fort Davis Elementary School. For
the past month, Panama Canal
Meteorologist Manuel Smith at the
Cristobal Hydrographic Office has
been greeted each morning by 6th
graders Dianna Berrara or Wes Fue
with a report of local precipitation.
Three times during the school day
reports are forwarded to the Cristobal
office and these reports are included
in the daily report to the Balboa
The rain gage was obtained as a
loan from the Panama Canal organ-

ization as a practical application for
the study of a science unit. U.S.
Air Force Meteorologist Sgt. John
Holly volunteered his assistance,
demonstrated various weather instru-
ments, and explained the importance
of the weather bureau and weather

The class was impressed with the
importance of accurate rainfall meas-
urement, as the reserve water for dry
season operation of the Canal is
determined by the amount of precipi-
tation, especially during the month
of November.
Acquisition of additional weather
instruments is expected to expand
the operation of the Fort Davis Ele-
mentary School weather station over
the dry season.

Junior weathermen Dianna Berrara and Wes Fue are shown above reading
the rain gage at the Fort Davis weather station, located at the Fort Davis
Elementary School.

John O'Hara's The Horse Knows
the Way is the fourth collection of
short stories he has written in 4 years.
(He announced that this will be his
last, for a while, at least.) It is a
measure of his popularity that his
collections regularly appear on the
bestseller list, an unusual phenom-
enon for the form. In Horse we find
the same nimble imagination and
vigorous writing that we expect, and
it will provide pleasurable reading.
Life With Picasso-Francoise Gilot,
who for nearly 10 years shared her
life with the leading artist of modern
times, throws new light on his
aesthetic philosophy, his views on
other great artists, and certain aspects
of his singular personality unrevealed
until now. Included in this extra-
ordinary memoir are other great
names in arts and letters-such as
Matisse, Braque, Gertrude Stein,
Gide-people who moved through
Picasso's atelier and his life.
In The New Meaning of Treason,
Rebecca West has revised and en-
larged her 1947 classic work on
traitors and defectors of World
War II, The Meaning of Treason, to
include some of the notorious spy
and subversion cases of the 1950's
and 1960's. Not only does the author
give us superb reporting but also
perceptive political and social com-
ment. A fascinating and compelling
"must," even for those who have read
the earlier book.
Napoleon and Josephine; the bi-
ography of a marriage, by Frances
Mossiker. It is the marriage of two
magnificent persons that is most
absorbingly treated here-not the
story of two illustrious figures in the

The population of Nicaragua, esti-
mated at 1,600,000, is about three-
quarters rural. At least 80 percent of
the population depend on farming
occupations for a livelihood. Raising
coffee, cotton, and cattle are the
leading occupations.

tapestry of history. At the beginning
of their marriage Napoleon was in-
sanely in love, Josephine, merely
amused and cool. Yet, 11 years later
there was a complete turn-about. The
drama that unfolds as the author re-
creates their turbulent life together
makes fascinating reading.
The Hands of Cant6, by Tom Lea.
The setting of this short novel is in
the untamed Mexico and Southwest
of 400 years ago, soon after the
appearance of the Spanish conquis-
tadors. It concerns the Spanish in-
troduction of horses in the new world
and centers around Don Vito Cantiu,
whose iron and gifted hands have
created a vast livestock hacienda.
Complications arise when it is learned
that some of his valuable animals
have been discovered in the hands
of the savages. Cantui's countermoves
pluge the reader into an exciting
story. The author's drawings and
decorations, the appropriate type and
the general design of the book add
to the pleasure of reading it.
The Rest of the Robots, by Isaac
Asimov. A collection of short science
fiction stories-all about robots and

award, each accompanied by a check
for $150.
Mrs. Sawyer was commended for
superior service to the Panama Canal
organization in her capacity of cler-
ical assistant. The certificate awarded
her said: "Since the inception of the
Water Transportation Division, she
has consistently demonstrated out-
standing interest in improving the
efficiency of this unit. Her cheerful
assumption of responsibilities has
freed her supervisor from routine
tasks to devote additional time to
critical areas."
Leigh C. Paulson was commended
for superior service to the Panama
Canal organization as Supervisory
General Supply Officer. "During the
past three years," said his certificate,
"he has demonstrated a high order of
administrative ability and exceptional
talent for promoting efficiency in the
Mount Hope warehouse. His utiliza-
tion of mechanical aids, advantage-
ous placing of inventory stocks, and
better development of force has
resulted in greater efficiency and
lower handling costs."
Thirty beneficial suggestion awards
were presented the following em-
Albert D. Jones, whose suggestion
eliminated a safety hazard in the
Grounds Maintenance Branch; Win-
ters A. Hope, whose suggestion for
overnight parking of certain Engi-
neering Division trucks at Gamboa
is estimated to save some $420 a year;
Russell E. Oberholtzer, who sug-
gested issuance of name tags to Canal
Zone police; Clois C. Duffie, who
suggested an improved method for
cleaning air-conditioning units in
the Administration Building; Vivian
Smith, who suggested improved cash
register procedures at Rainbow City
Service Center;
Harry E. Pearl, suggested that
Grounds Maintenance employees
wear distinctive clothing to identify
them as Canal employees; Eusebio
Ortiz, that headlights of emergency
vehicles be used when on emergency
daytime runs; Henry A. Thousand,
an improvement in messenger service;
Ethel W. Brown and Joan C. Fitz-

skid strips on the floor at Gorgas
Hospital; Egbert Willies, elimination

Robert L. Snyder

Appointed Zone

Postal Inspector

Robert L. Snyder has been named
Postal Inspector of the Canal Zone
Postal Service. He succeeds Carroll E.
Kocher who was recently appointed
Assistant Postmaster, Balboa.
Snyder, who came to the Panama
Canal organization in 1941 from
Canton, Ohio, where he worked in
the post office, began his career with
the Postal Division at the Ancon
Post Office. Through the years he
has held various positions with the
Postal Division-all on the Pacific
side of the Isthmus.
The Snyders, who live in Balboa
Heights, have three sons; Richard
who attends Hardin-Simmons Uni-
versity, Abilene, Tex., William, a
student at Canal Zone College, and
Ted, who is in junior high school.
Kocher came to the Isthmus in
1919 with his parents. He attended
Canal Zone schools and went to work
as a railway mail clerk in 1931.
Kocher, who will complete 34 years'
service with the Panama Canal on
January 5, 1965-all of it with the.
Postal Division-has served at most
of the branch post offices on both
sides of the Isthmus.
Kocher's wife, Carol, is a teacher
in Special Education Division of the
Canal Zone Schools. Son Mike works
in the Accounting Division. A daugh-
ter, Patricia, attends Otterbein Col-
lege in Westerville, Ohio, and Beth,
7, is a student at the Balboa Elemen-
tary School.

For Farm, Little

League Seasons

The Pacific Little League will
inaugurate its 15th baseball season
Monday. Opening ceremonies, start-
ing at 4:15 p.m., will include a
parade of all teams of the league,
raising of the colors to the national
anthem, and Governor Fleming, after
accepting a review of all the teams,
will throw the first pitch of the 1965
The opening game will feature the
1964 league champion Police, man-
aged by J. P. Barnes and Mack
Boblett versus the runner-up Elks
1414, managed by Tom Spencer and
Irish Ireland.
The League's Umpire-in-chief,
Eddie May, has announced the fol-
lowing roster of umpires for this
year: Bud Horter, Fred Mohl, Mary
Chadwick, Ed Richmond, Tom Han-
nigan, Bill Fulleton, Don Wilcox,
Paul Quackenbush, and Leon
The Pacific Farm League will open
its 12th baseball season Monday at
the Farm League Baseball Park. The
opening game will see the 1964
league champions, Seymour Juniors,
managed by Ed Malin and Frank
Malavasic, meeting the runner-up
Gibraltar Juniors, managed by Bud
Risberg and Bud Harris.
Opening ceremonies, starting at
4:15 p.m., will include a review of
all the teams by Lieutenant Governor
Parker, who will then throw the first
pitch of the 1965 season.
Players, managers, coaches, and
directors of the league wish to thank
all the sponsors for their continuing
financial and moral support.

(Continued from p. 1)
During the times that east or west
lanes are out of service at Pedro
Miguel, lockage capacity will be
reduced to about 40 lockages, or 44
oceangoing vessels per day. As many
as 48 ships have transited the Canal
in a 24-hour period.
It is expected that lockage capac-
ity will be adequate to meet daily
requirements on all except peak days
during all phases of the overhaul.
To expedite shipping, hold delays
to a minimum, and transit the maxi-
mum number of vessels, special
measures will be taken:
Tug service will be available with-
out charge to vessels not ordinarily
requiring tugs when only a single
lock lane is available due to overhaul
of the lane out of service.
All locks will be manned and
scheduled to deliver the maximum
number of vessels possible that can
be processed through the locks
undergoing overhaul.
Superships and others which re-
quire clearcut daylight transit will be
scheduled so as to cause the least
reduction in lockage capacity.
Should significant holdover of
vessels develop during any phase of
the overhaul, the backlog will be
cleared up before the next phase is
To provide the best possible serv-
ice to shipping and hold delays to
a minimum, cooperation of ship oper-
ators has been asked to keep Panama
Canal officials advised of the correct
expected arrival time of their vessels
and have their ships arrive in con-
dition ready for transit with respect
to draft, list, and trim.
To the extent found necessary,
vessels failing to give the required
advance notice of arrival time and
not having made accurate corrections
may be passed over in transit sched-
ules in favor of those which arrive
according to notice.

Collector's item: Mrs. M. Wayne Foscue with 1915 PanCanal calendar plate.

Old PanCanal .
l Civil Service

Finds Way Home
A hobbyist's find is a 50-year-old
Panama Canal calendar plate found
thousands of miles from the Canal
Zone by Mr. and Mrs. M. Wayne
Foscue of 918-A, La Boca, while
browsing in an antique shop in
North Carolina.
Mrs. Foscue said she and her
husband stopped at a large antique
shop near Greensboro, N.C., and
were looking over the huge collec-
tion there when her husband spied
the plate. This particular calendar
plate apparently was a Christmas gift
in the year when the Panama Canal
was opened.
The center of the plate shows the
Panama Canal area. Two crossed
U.S. flags are at the top, and lettering
at the bottom says "Compliments
of Peter Meyer, Milford, Ill." Border-
ing the Canal topography map is
the calendar for 1915. The plate has
a gold border, but no signature or
manufacturer's mark.
Mrs. Foscue, who is a teacher at
the Diablo Elementary School, does
not especially specialize in her
antique collecting. Wayne Foscue,
an electrical engineer with the Pan-
ama Canal organization, collects
moustache cups in particular.
They have written to Milford, Ill.,
and are awaiting an answer with
more information on the half-century
old plate that has traveled from
Illinois to North Carolina to the
Canal Zone.

Ship Loss Total

At Postwar Peak
Deep-sea ship losses through sink-
ing, stranding and fire last year were
the highest since World War II,
according to a survey by Lloyd's
Register of Shipping.
The annual survey revealed that
254 ships of 496,805 gross tons were
lost, compared with 249 vessels of
481,098 tons in 1962. Greek owners
were the greatest losers, with casual-
ties amounting to 22 ships of 89,273
tons, including the cruise liner
Lakonia which sank after a fire.
Other serious losses were the
Marine Sulphur Queen, Hai Zaing,
Brittany, and the Tritonica.

Week Observance

Starts Jan. 10

National Civil Service Week will
be observed January 10 to 16. It will
mark the 82d anniversary of the
signing of the Civil Service Act on
January 16, 1883, by President
Chester A. Arthur.
At first the number of Government
jobs placed under the merit system
was small, but as the advantages of
making Government jobs competitive
and filling them on the basis of
ability rather than influence became
obvious, more and more jobs were
placed under the merit system. Now
the vast majority of Federal jobs are
under the competitive civil service.
Nearly half of the Federal work
force is employed in direct support
of air, ground, and sea forces.
Almost a quarter of them are respon-
sible for delivering the mail. Another
7 percent serve veterans and their
dependents and operate the world's
largest network of modern hospitals.
Members of the Federal career
service engage in some of the world's
most exciting and important work.
They plumb the depths of the ocean,
explore the reaches of space. They
are finding cures for deadly diseases,
developing new ways to grow better
crops. They control air traffic to
assure safety of our airways, and
conduct our relations with new and
old nations around the globe.

The principal rivers in Colombia
are the Magdalena, flowing into the
Caribbean Sea, the Cauca, the
Caqueta (a tributary of the Amazon),
the Meta, and Putumayo.

Safety Program

Reaches 4,000 in

Elementary Grades
Approximately 4,000 elementary
school children have been given tips
on safety by Sgt. Walter A. Alves
during a safety lecture program
conducted by the Canal Zone Police
Bicycle safety classes for young-
sters have been conducted for several
years. This year's talks covered such
subjects as playing in the streets and
around parked cars; crossing streets;
hazards of running instead of walk-
ing; looking both directions .before
crossing streets; safe bicycle riding
points including illegal riding on
sidewalks; riding at night without
lights; proper use of hand signals;
unsafe and illegal practices of hold-
ing onto motor vehicles while riding
bicycles and other vehicles, and
unsafe coasting on streets in wagons,
on scooters, and on skates.
The program was reported to have
been well received by school officials
as well as by students and schools

The first "safety" helmet was probably merely a cap of
stout "boiled" leather, worn by the warriors of the
small nations emerging from tribalism in the troubled
dawn of history. Since civilization flowered in what is now
the Middle East, these early helmets were intended
to be as much protection against the powerful rays
of the sun as against the somewhat less
deadly copper and bronze weapons
of those days.

A modern safety helmet will protect
scooterists against the possibility of
sunstroke on those long dry season trips. And
helmets can now be made cool in summer,
or warm in winter, for true wearing comfort.
