. I ubljTonnage

SOf, Years Ago

There was an awflIot of coal in
B lbtal a-the.-ogtierfly, .
It arrived from Notfolk, Va.,
aboard t iperrrien, the Nini
f Fs d'-'Charles E. itson, 'which 1
between them carried 95,076 long

The two ships followed each other
south through the Canal. Both were
docked at the Balboa piers overnight
to take on bunkers for the long
voyage to Japan.
Their cargoes consisted of the high
grade type of metallurgical coking
coal mined in Virginia and West
Virginia, regarded by the Japanese
as the most desirable coking:coal for
use in steel manufacture.
The Nini, which broke the coal
cargo record in 1962, was carrying
45,812 tons on this trip. The Charles
E. Wilson had a cargo of 49,264 long
tons. Both make regular trips through
the Canal with coal for Japan and
usually return by way of Peru with
iron ore for U.S. and European ports.
The 746-foot Nini and the 761-foot
Charles E. Wilson are only two of
many superships traveling through
the Canal with coal cargoes. During
the month of December these big
ships carried i ':ff"if' l,,rg tons of
coal and coke,,to the steel mills of
Japan. Tis fIght the year's total
amount ol moving through the
Canal mainly Japan, to 6,562,000
S--" tons. *
This amlnt, hog- as it'was, did
not equa-l:le sr-i~ord '-r in 1962 when
the year's total came to 6,893,000.
Coal shipments through the Canal
have increased from around 3 million
(Continued on p. 4)

Balboa harbor seems full of ships as the supercarrier Nini, foreground, takes up most of Balboa Pier 18 and the
equally large Charles E. Wilson, assisted by three Panama Canal tugs, moves in to Pier 15.

No Barber,

But Lots

Of Talking
The red and white pole at the top
of Sosa Hill doesn't mean that a
barber has retreated to that location.
It isn't even a pole. It's part of the
radio gear complex in this area.
The tower supports antennas for
Marine Traffic Control, the Canal
Zone Police and Fire Divisions, and
the Dredging Division.
A dish reflector is to be added
during the dry season to the collec-
tion on Sosa Hill, and another such
reflector will be on top of the
Administration Building. Facing one
another, these dish-type reflectors
will eliminate the need of a tele-
phone line between the Administra-
tion Building and Sosa Hill. Which
will be a help, because lightning
storms in the past often resulted in
an "out of order" report on the line
to Sosa Hill.
Another type of tower at Mount
Pelado, just outside Gamboa, is a
relay station for microwave for the
Panama Canal Dredging Division,
Railroad Division, and Police and
Fire Divisions.
All six of the Panama Railroad
locomotives have had radio gear in-
stalled, with sending and receiving
sets on each locomotive for two-way
communication with the Railroad
Division office in Cristobal.
The top of hill towers are un-
manned stations, and all the equip-
ment in each station is locked in an
air-conditioned room.
The Sosa Hill tower was installed
by the Panama Canal organization.
It was designed by Gibbs & Hill, and
was supplied by Motorola.


Trip Booked
For oldtimers taking part in a pro-
gram sponsored by the Isthmian
Historical Society February 6 it will
be a reminiscing trip aboard Las
Cruces. "Towns Along the Line" will
be the subject and representatives
from the sites of old towns that have
disappeared will be present.
The trip and meeting are open to
members of the society, their fam-
ilies, and prospective members.
All who are interested may call
Balboa 3497 or 2590. Buses will
leave the Civil Affairs Building at
9 a.m. to take the people to the boat.

Nearly 150 rivers and streams of
considerable size cross El Salvador
and flow into the Pacific, but none of
these is navigable. The Lempa, the
largest river in the west of Central
America, is 162 miles long. There are
several lakes noted for their beauty.

Dr. Harry Eno, who fought "yellowjack" with Gorgas and has been practicing medicine on the Isthmus since
1905, receives a silver 50th anniversary medallion and a Panama Canal 50th anniversary book from Axton T. Jones,
Transportation and Terminals Director, right. With Dr. Eno are his wife and Perry Francey, dean of the local
steamship agents and an old friend of Dr. and Mrs. Eno. Dr. Eno was on vacation in the United States during
the Canal's 50th anniversary observance in August.

applications must reach Princeton by

The scholarships are awarded on
the basis of financial need and aca-

graduated from secondary schools
in Panama, in the Canal Zone, in
the United States, or elsewhere, but
must submit a transcript showing
satisfactory completion of a college
preparatory program, and must be
in the top quarter of their graduating
classes, or, if already in college, must
have been in the top quarter of their
class during the preceding semester.
Since English is the language of
instruction in the Canal Zone College
and is the language of the scholarship
tests, all applicants for scholarships
or for full-time admission must be
proficient in English.
Of the 10 scholarships, 3 are
awarded to Canal Zone residents of

idents who are not U.S. citizens, and
4 to residents of Panama without
regard to citizenship. Since students
awarded the scholarships continue to
hold them as long as they carry a full
schedule of 15 credits or more and
have no semester mark below "C,"
it is not yet known how many of the
10 scholarships will be open next fall.
Persons who have previously taken
the College Board tests need not be
retested but must have their test
record sent from Princeton unless
the record is already on file at Canal
Zone College.
While not required for the scholar-
ship applications, the College Board
Achievement Tests (which are ad-
ministered the afternoon of March 6)
are advised for guidance purposes.
Especially recommended for students
who apply from a school where
English is not the language of in-
struction are the English achieve-
ment test and the writing sample.
The cost of the Scholastic aptitude
tests is $4.50, and for three achieve-
ment tests is $6.75, which (in check
or money order) must accompany
the application to Princeton, N.J.
Persons who miss the February 6
application deadline may apply until
February 20 by payment of a $2.50
late processing penalty.
Further information regarding the
Panama Canal tuition scholarship
application or regarding admission to
Canal Zone College may be obtained
by telephoning Dr. Glen Murphy,
assistant dean, Balboa 2380.
