Locks Concrete

Work Under Way

At Pedro Miguel

Pouring of concrete to replace por-
tions of the slabs found to have
buckled in the floor of the west
chamber of Pedro Miguel Locks was
started early this week by Main-
tenance Division crews working on
a 24-hour-basis. At the same time, the
work of removing broken concrete
from the floor of the locks was
Inspection of the centerwall cul-
verts also was started this week. These
culverts, located between the east and
west chambers at Pedro Miguel, were
unwatered over the weekend and for
the next week or two regular main-

holding 20,000 alphabetic characters,
each. The card reader is capable of
reading 400 cards a minute and capa-

The printer will print between 600
and 900 lines a minute. Seven mag-
netic tape units can pass tape at a
rate of 3,600 inches a minute. The
console and the central processing
unit control the other 12 units, govern

MacVittie Named New Chief

Of Architectural Section

Promotion of Edmund R. Mac-
Vittie, architect in the Panama Canal
Engineering Division, to the position
of Chief of the Architectural Section
to succeed David A. Yerkes, who has
retired, has been announced by Col.
Ellis E. Pickering, Engineering and
Construction Director.
A graduate of Cornell University
with a degree in architectural engi-
neering, MacVittie has been an em-
ployee of the Canal organization since
1938. During that time he has held
a number of positions from student
engineer in the former Officer Engi-
neer Division to the Superintendent
of the Northern District of the former
Building Division. He has been in the
Architectural Section since 1957.
When he first arrived in the Canal

During World War II, he was on
duty with the U.S. Army Engineers
in the Canal Zone with the rank of
colonel and was connected with the
construction of wartime installations
on the Isthmus and in Central
In addition to his regular duties,
he attended the Command and Gen-
eral Staff College at Fort Leaven-
worth in 1943 and the Industrial War
College in Washington, D.C., in 1952.
At the end of his war service, he
received the Award of the Legion
of Merit.
Active in civic affairs during the
many years he has lived on the Isth-
mus, MacVittie has served as pres-
ident of the Cristobal-Colon Rotary
Club, has been an official of the Canal

But for the Panama Canal organ-
ization they are to start work process-
ing data associated with inventory
Before they start their data pro-
cessing tasks, every one of thousands
of circuits are being tested by two
Malayan site engineers who came to
the Isthmus from the States to set up
the system and make certain it
operates properly.
Site engineers Richard Kwok and
David Woo are both natives of
Singapore. Both attended English
schools there and both were grad-
uated in electrical engineering from
the Singapore Polytechnic College.
Besides English, Richard Kwok
speaks Malay; the Chinese national
language, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
David Woo also speaks Mandarin and
Cantonese, as well as Shanghainese.
They were working as electronic
data program equipment engineers
in the Singapore National Cash Reg-
ister offices when a data processing
system was programed for Singapore.
Eleven months of intensive schooling
is required to qualify a man to
maintain this equipment, and the
Singapore firm sent them to the Inter-
national Computer School in London
for training. Then came a spot of
trouble with Indonesia, and data pro-
cessing for Singapore was postponed.
The two site engineers were trans-
ferred from London to Dayton, Ohio,

President Seeks

Major Reforms in

Present Programs

President Johnson recently told his
Cabinet that "building the Great
Society will require a major effort on
the part of every Federal agency."
The President called for agency
action in formulating imaginative
new ideas and programs and in "car-
rying out hard-hitting, tough-minded
reforms in existing programs."
Emphasizing that the program will
require a substantial investment, the
President said the Nation "cannot
afford to waste a single dollar of our
resources on outmoded programs"
and that the Government "must get
the most out of every dollar of scarce
budget resources, reforming old
programs and using the savings for
the new programs of the Great
"We simply cannot afford to keep
on doing the same thing year after
year merely because that's the way
we did it in the past," he said. "In
particular, we cannot afford to spend
scarce budget dollars-to meet needs
that no longer exist; to alleviate
hardships that have long since been
overcome; or to subsidize services
that can be provided adequately at
full cost.
"I will continue to insist, as I have
in the past, on increased productivity
and greater efficiency," he declared.
"Each of you must take a cold, hard
look at your existing programs.
I expect each of you to be as bold
and imaginative in reforming on-
going programs as in proposing new
ones. I think there are many cases
where boldness in reform will pay

On the Isthmus

By Donald Robinson

A question has been asked about
the fluoridation of our water: Is it
safe, and particularly is it safe for
children to receive in addition topical
By the way . .the SPILLWAY
welcomes questions, at least those to
do with "Your Health in Panama."
I went to talk with Lewis E. Fon-
taine, D.D.S., who since 1951 has
been Chief, Dental Service, Gorgas
Dr. Fontaine received both his
bachelor and dental degrees from the
University of Pittsburgh. He is past
president of the Canal Zone Dental
Society, and has offices in Ancon.
"To answer your questions," Dr.
Fontaine said, "I think the fluorida-
tion practices in the Canal Zone are
safe. After exhaustive studies the
American Dental Association has rec-
ommended 0.7 to 0.9 parts per
million, fluorine, for water at our
"In the Canal Zone we use 0.7
ppm, the lower limits recommended.
"Among many interesting studies
one in Grand Rapids comes to my
mind," he said.
"Was that a study of safety or of
caries prevention?" I asked.

Former PC Tugboat Bell

Rings for Mental Health

A bell that was once affixed to one
of the first tugboats to transit the
Panama Canal rang in the festivities
advertising the Bell Ringers Ball atop
Florida's Brevard County Mental
Health Association float in a parade
The historical brass bell denoted
most appropriately the Mental Health
Association's slogan, "Ring the Bell
for Mental Health." This same bell
ding-donged its way through the
Canal in early 1914 as the lock crews
were drilled in preparation for the
opening day.
The bell, owned by Mrs. Leah
Conley, wife of the late Richard
Conley, former Panama Railroad
engineer, who came to the Canal
organization in 1906, and retired in
1936, has a mysterious as well as a
historical background.
The bell has been "lifted"-stolen,

A camel is just a horse designed
by a committee!

Experience: What you imagine you
have until you get more.

restolen and stolen again, and finally
returned to the Conley home, where
it is hoped that it will remain.
The "wandering" bell, about 12
inches high and 10 inches in diam-
eter, brings back many nostalgic
memories to the oldsters of Titusville,
Fla., who recall hearing the bell rung
to announce an emergency, or to call
the children home.

Material intended for publication in

"Mainly safety, but also of effec-
tiveness," Dr. Fontaine answered.
"In Grand Rapids, 822 high school
children, where 1.0 ppm fluorine has
been in the water for the past 17
years, were compared with that num-
ber of high school children in Mary-
land, where the fluorine content has
been 0 or less than 0.2 ppm. There
was no more tooth mottling or opacity
in the Michigan group and a lot less
tooth trouble."
Another comparison made between
18-19-year-olds in Rockford, Ill., with
only 0.1 ppm fluorine in the water
and Aurora, Ill., with 1.2 ppm flu-
orine occurring naturally, showed the
same results. No ill effects, but 50-60
percent less cavities in Aurora.
In the Canal Zone, I learned, only
children with excessively carious
teeth receive additional topical (on
the teeth) application of stanus flu-
oride. For such patients treatment is
recommended at 6 month intervals.
The dental hygienist applies the
material, then for 1 hour afterward
the patient avoids washing out his
mouth. Formerly sodium fluoride was
used in a three treatment cycle. One
application of stanus fluoride does
the trick.
We've had our water fluoridated
since 1956; and all the dentists and
physicians I know are glad we have it.

Max Conover, quien se jubil6 del
servicio del Canal de Panama el mes
pasado, era capataz general en la Di-
visi6n de Mantenimiento. Su servicio
con el Canal es de 42 afios, 4 meses,
todos en el sector Pacifico.
Fred Baumbach, capataz general,
tuvo tambi6n a su cargo las instala-
ciones del taller de pintura durante
various afios. Su servicio data desde
julio de 1934. De 1934 a 1941 estuvo
en el sector AtlAntico del Istmo y
luego fue trasladado a la Divisi6n de
Mantenimiento en el Pacifico.

Esclusas en las instalaciones de la via
occidental en Pedro Miguel, mien-
tras la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento
trabaja las 24 horas en la reparaci6n
del piso y alcantarilla. El trabajo de
reparaci6n en esta via deberA estar
terminado dentro de 3 o 4 semanas.
Se espera alguna demora en el tra-
fico con la remoci6n del servicio de la
alcantarilla del muro central, ya que
cada paso por las esclusas demorara
aproximadamente 15 minutes. El
volume de transito actualmente, sin
embargo, es mAs bajo que lo acos-
tumbrado debido a la reciente huelga
portuaria del AtlAntico y la Costa del
Acero reforzado y m6todos mejo-
rados de construcci6n se estan usando
en la reparaci6n y reconstrucci6n de
las dafadas alcantarillas laterales. El
trabajo de reparaci6n de emergen-
cia, que puede costar por lo menos
$200,000, prolongarA la limpieza
regular durante varias semanas.
La limpieza de la via oriental de
Pedro Miguel comenzarA alrededor
del 15 de marzo, alrededor de 3 sema-
nas despues de lo sefialado. Esta parte
del proyecto debera terminarse en 4
semanas y se espera que pondrA nue-
vamente en complete operaci6n a las
esclusas a mediados de abril.
Se cree que el dafio es similar al
ocurrido en 1958 en la cAmara orien-
tal de Pedro Miguel cuando 8,000
pies cuadrados de las planchas del
piso se rajaron y tuvieron que ser
removidas y reemplazadas.
