Vol. III, No. 36 50 Years of Service . To World Commerce Friday, February 26, 1965

The climax of the Carnival
festivities comes on Tuesday
(March 2) when a caravan of
elaborate floats and pretty girls
rides through a sea of confetti and
This year the Carnival parade
will enter the Canal Zone at
Fourth of July Avenue where it
intersects with Avenue A. It pro-
ceeds along Fourth of July and
Kennedy Avenues to Frangipani
Street, where it renters Panama
to terminate at the National
In the parade will be floats rep-
resenting military components in
the Canal Zone and the Canal
organization. The Pacific Side
PanCanal float, symbolizing the
waterway's service to world com-
merce, features an artistic globe
topped by a crown-shaped throne
on which the Pacific Side Queen,
Nancy Morency, will ride in lofty
splendor. Members of her court
will be on the deck of the float,
two seated on surging porpoises
and the other two on special
benches set in a rolling surf of
paper mache.
Three floats will represent the
military forces in the Canal Zone.
The Navy theme is "Let's Pull
Together"; the Army float will
depict a general Carnival theme
with scenes of Old Panama; and
the Air Force float symbolizes
"Hemispheric Solidarity."


Go Into High

Gear Tonight
A busy schedule awaits the Pacific
Side Carnival Queen and members of
the Canal Zone Carnival Committee
during the next few days.
The traditional pre-Lenten festivi-
ties get into high gear starting tonight,
when the Pacific side Carnival group,
Queen Nancy I and her court, will
travel to the Atlantic side for the
coronation of the Atlantic Side Queen,
Nina Chappell, as Nina I.
Saturday the Pacific Side Carnival
Committee, the Queen and her court
will gather at the Tivoli Guest House,
then join the Panama Carnival Queen
and her retinue for an audience with
President Marco A. Robles at 11:30
a.m. Following the presidential visit
and a toast to King Momo, the car-
avan will proceed to the Municipal
Palace, where Panama's Queen,
Orieta I, will be presented the key
to the city.
Coronation Saturday
Saturday afternoon the Carnival
party will parade in cars and trucks
through the streets of Panama. That
evening the Canal Zone group will
again gather at the Tivoli Guest
House and board a bus for a round
of visits to popular "toldos" and
finally to the Panama Hilton Hotel
for the coronation of Queen Orieta I
of Panama.
Sunday morning the C.Z. Carnival
group again will join the Panama
committee members in a caravan that
will tour the streets of Panama and
pay visits to the Panama Golf Club
and other organizations participating
in this year's Carnival festivities.
Dance Honors Queen
That afternoon there will be a
parade in which men will wear "mon-
tuno" costumes and the girls will be
attired in the traditional "pollera."
The day's merrymaking ends at the

level, on the left as you drive in, leads into the parking upper or lower ramps, via Culebra Road and Herrick
area for patients and visitors. The upper level, on the Road. All roads, traffic, and parking in the area of the
right side of the entrance, leads to the main entrance older buildings are unchanged. The parking lot across
to the building and the emergency entrance. Although Gorgas Road from the new building, shown at right,
there will be no public parking on this level, patients or is reserved for hospital staff personnel.

Key Gorgas Activities Moving;

New Annex Already "In Business"

The long-anticipated opening time
for the beautiful new eight-story
Gorgas Hospital Annex is finally here!
Without fanfare or ceremony, key
activities of the hospital began their
move into the new building earlier
this week and by this morning several
were operating in their new location.
The major part of the move-most
of the clinics, the pharmacy, operat-
ing suite, the business office, and
patients on the surgical wards-will
be made over this weekend. Thus, the
majority of activities which involve
the public, either as patients or as
visitors, will be open for business
Monday morning, March 1, in the
new building.
A detailed schedule in adjoining
columns summarizes the timing of
each move and the date the activity
will open in the new building.
From the viewpoint of the public,
one of the most significant impacts

of the new building is the additional
badly needed parking which will be
available on the ground level (first
floor). Almost all of the 90 new park-
ing spaces will be reserved for clinic
patients and visitors.
Other highlights of the new struc-
ture are the large new emergency
suite, an extensive X-ray department,
six modern surgical operating rooms,
a well-designed and functional lab-
oratory, and four floors of attractive
private and semiprivate patient rooms.
Each room has its own sink and
toilet and is completely equipped
with handsome new hospital furni-
ture. Attractive new draperies will be
installed during the next month. The
main floor clinics and waiting rooms
will unfortunately present a some-
what spartan appearance until the
balance of the new furniture, drap-
eries, and equipment are installed
during the next 2 months.

Here are details on planning for
the moves in several key patient

Pregnancy Patients
The labor/delivery suite will move
from its present location in Section
"0" to the new building (eighth
floor) during the morning of Mon-
day, March 1. Patients going into
labor between 8 a.m. and noon should
call 2-6338 before leaving home so
as to be directed to the proper loca-
tion of the labor suite. In the after-
noon, labor patients should go to the
new building.

Patient Visiting
With the exception of obstetrical
patients, all surgical-type patients
will move into the new building Sun-
day, February 28. This must be a
careful, time-consuming procedure
and will likely require most of the
daylight hours. For this reason, the
public is requested to forgo visiting
during the normal afternoon visiting
hours. The move will be completed in
time for evening visiting hours. The
new location of each patient can be
obtained at the information office,
located just inside the main door
(second floor) of the new building.
Obstetrical patients will move to
the eighth floor of the new building
prior to afternoon visiting hours
Monday, March 1. Visitors can obtain
a patient's room assignment at the
nursing desk on the eighth floor.

Newborn Nursery
The Newborn Nursery will be in
its new location on the eighth floor of
the new building in time for after-
noon visiting hours on Monday,
March 1.

The Canal Zone College Club will
meet at the Fort Amador Officers'
Open Mess at 3:30 p.m. Monday,

Zone schools psychologist, will be the

27 Awards


Four Superior Service awards, each
accompanied by a check for $150, a
gold watch for the best suggestion
submitted in 1964, and 22 benefi-
cial suggestion awards that totaled
$1,075 were presented Canal em-
ployees by Governor Fleming last
week during an awards ceremony in
the Board Room, Administration
Building, Balboa Heights.
The award for the best suggestion
of the year was presented Richard D.
Peacock, English Publications Editor
of the Panama Canal Information
The Superior Service awards were
received by Canal Zone Police In-
spector Fred E. Perra, Patricia M.
Flores of the Industrial Division, Vic-
toria C. de Rojas of the Tivoli Guest
House, and Barbara Berkowitz of the
New Orleans Office of the Canal
The certificate presented Captain
Perra with the $150 check said that
"during the past year he outstand-
ingly accomplished the additional
duties of developing training pro-
grams and supervising the procure-
ment of necessary equipment and
supplies under an exparided budget
for the augmented Police Division."
Patricia Flores was cited for exem-
plary service to the Panama Canal in
her capacity of clerk-stenographer.
Her proficiency in the preparation
and processing of personnel docu-
ments has expedited the administra-
tive work in the Industrial Division,
said her certificate.
Victoria C. de Rojas was com-
mended for her outstanding perform-
ance the past 8 years as telephone
operator, front desk clerk, kitchen
cashier, storeroom clerk, and agent
cashier in the Tivoli Guest House.

Required for

Small Boats
Owners of small boats operating in
Canal Zone waters are being re-
minded by the Navigation Division
that their craft must pass annual in-
spection and have a valid certificate
of inspection aboard.
This is not just a whim of the
Panama Canal authorities. They feel
that boatowners owe it to themselves
as well as to their passengers and to
the owners of other boats plying
Canal Zone waters that the Canal
Zone rules and regulations for small
vessels be obeyed.
For the sake of safety, section 1358
of the Canal Zone Code specifies that
small boats of not more than 65 feet
in length and propelled by machinery
must be registered, certificated, and
numbered-and the numbers dis-
played in a conspicuous place.
Such boats are subject to an annual
inspection which includes a check of
the number of life preservers, fire-
fighting apparatus, safety devices,
such as a whistle and lights, an
anchor, adequate lines, and a life
ring buoy and boat hooks.
Inspections to see that the small
boats operating in Canal Zone waters
meet these safety requirements are
made on both sides of the Isthmus.
According to the Canal Zone Code,
those found to be operating boats
without a valid registration and cer-
tificate of inspection on board are
subject to fines of not more than $100.

On the Isthmus

By Donald Robinson

Crippled Children

Corgas Hospital provides a service
S- "I that apparently is under-used. Fancy
SSt .any of our clinics out looking for
-r-' \ -patients!
SiI However, each Monday afternoon
S. at 1 p.m. the Children's Orthopedic
SClinic meets. "It has room for more
S______ -- patients," Dr. Keith A. Walker, Chief
I. _- E *-"- '" of Orthopedics at Gorgas Hospitals
Stold me.
A*i I-_ I "We will see children who have
S. club feet, curvature of the spine, old
S... -- uncorrected polio deformity," Dr.
Walker said. "Any child with muscle
or skeleton difficulties."
I obtained this information when
I went to Dr. Walker's clinic as a
patient myself. (Not the children's
clinic to be sure!) I was impressed

"Big as a house?" It is-A home on wheels in which Mr. and Mrs. D. N. Boostrom of Gamboa traveled over the
Inter-American Highway. Eight-year-old Kristina (Tina) Boostrom is shown above, just about to ready for a spin
about the Panama countryside.

Motor Home New on Local Scene

Planning a trip over the Inter-
American Highway?
The formula evolved by Mr. and
Mrs. D. N. Boostrom of Gamboa, who
have traveled the highway north and
south, calls for "a modicum of intel-
ligence, a soupcon of adventure, valid
passports, a great deal of informa-
tion-as much as one can get-and
an American Automobile Association
catalog of travel information."
Their most recent trip was in their
new Motor Home, a 4-ton home on
wheels that sleeps six, in which they
traveled from Brown City, Mich.,
80 miles north of Detroit, down
through the States and over the Inter-
American Highway to the Canal

New on Scene
The Motor Home is new on the
local scene. On the exterior it looks
like a close relative to a bus, and
along the route would-be passengers
would hail it and try to come aboard.
Inside there are comfortable seats,
a dinette, stove, refrigerator, sink,
cabinets, sleeping accommodations,
bathroom with shower, and closets.
Mr. and Mrs. Boostrom crossed the
border into Mexico at Laredo, Tex.
From Mexico City to Puebla they
chose the new divided highway
rather than an older paved road. This
new highway, they said, is patrolled
constantly by a fleet of green Mexican
Tourist Department pick-up trucks,
manned by English-speaking me-
chanics, ready to help stranded
And this patrol is alert. The Boos-
troms stopped to take pictures of
Popocatepetl and were changing film
when a Mexican Tourist Department
truck pulled up, ready to help, if help
was needed.

Harrowing Descent
The harrowing descent to Arriaga
Las Cruces to join Highway 200 or
the Ruta Coastal they found is one
of the more "unfun" stretches for
those who are timorous, but the time
it takes in minutes is short. Approxi-
mately 170 miles of good road
stretches from Arriaga to the Gua-
temalan border.
Leaving Mexico is a simple pro-
cedure, but the Guatemalan customs
officials, although extremely cour-
teous take a long time with border
formalities. Moreover there is a
charge for the vehicle and each per-
son in the vehicle and the license
plate is covered with a Guatemalan
"Tourist" plate. The vehicle also is
thoroughly sprayed inside and out.
The coastal road from the border
to Esquintla and thence to Guate-
mala City is wide and good. But they
mistakenly decided on the more
adventurous route 14 through Anti-
gua. This road, they said, may have
been paved at one time; but now is
no more than a trail, winding through
small villages, through riverbeds, and
hugging the sides of the mountain.
In the rainy season this road becomes
impassable, and even in the dry
season there are so few places where
it is possible to pass another vehicle
that the trip becomes a fearsome
Hazards Varied
They rejoined the Inter-American
Highway at La Union in El Salvador.
All this road is paved and in most
sections very good, "but one must be
ever wary of stretches of poor surface,
cattle, pedestrians, dogs, chickens,
pigs, burros and, at times, extremely
narrow roads."
The highway in Nicaragua is excel-
lent, except for one 28-mile stretch
of rough washboard gravel between
Nandaime and Rivas.
The longest unpaved gravel sec-
tion of the Inter-American Highway
is the 135 miles through Costa Rica
to the Panama border with many
"desvios" or detours, and small slides
and stones. Mr. and Mrs. Boostrom
said many sections of this road are
in poor condition and caution was
the watchword, for the driver has to

Charlie Nall, a Mobile, Ala., city
detective, says he was proceeding in
his boat through Chalacoohee Bay
when a mullet leaped from the water
and smacked him right between the
eyes. He exhibited a black eye as

be alert for traffic from the opposite
direction. To break the monotony of
bouncing on bad roads, the traveler
goes over 43 bridges.
Worst Section
The worst section of the Inter-
American Highway in Panama, they
said, is the unpaved 79-mile section
between Guabala and Santiago,
where the surface of crushed stone
and river boulders does no good to
motor vehicle, or passengers.
The motorist coming into Panama,
as in Nicaragua, must have a pass-
port. To encourage tourism, Guate-
mala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and
Honduras issue tourist cards. In
Panama the tourist cards are only for
air and ship travelers. Passports, with
visas for all countries to be visited,
will facilitate border crossings.
The Boostroms found the bouncing
and jouncing over bad roads was
made bearable by reducing the air
pressure in the tires and trying to
maintain a 30-to-40 mile an hour
speed although rocks and ruts make
this difficult.
Water Available
For the traveling homemaker, Mrs.
Boostrom suggests stocking a small
supply of canned foods and bottled
beverages. Aqua pura-fresh water-
may be purchased from soft drink
vendors in towns all through Central
America, and she said they also pur-
chased bread and fruits during their
Further tips to prospective Inter-
American Highway travelers? Mr.
and Mrs. Boostrom remind travelers
that Mexico requires Mexican car
insurance, which should be obtained
before leaving home. Border stations
for customs, immigration, and police
clearance close 2 to 3 hours for lunch
and are closed Sundays, holidays, and
for fiestas. Persons who wish to cross
during those times must pay an extra
fee. Read and reread the AAA catalog
of travel information and, they advise,
do not drive at night.

Material intended for publica-
tion in THE SPILLWAY should be
received in the Panama Canal
Press Office not later than Monday
afternoon of the week of publica-
tion. Urgent material can be re-
ceived and processed for use the
same week as late as noon Tues-
day. Mail material to PANAMA

by the quality of care I saw patients

When I asked Dr. Walker if there
were any orthopedic conditions pecu-

But he stated and emphasized his
willingness to treat more patients in
the Children's Orthopedic Clinic.
One of the youngest physicians to

Dr. Walker when he received his

Match Head Rocketry

Is Dangerous Pastime

In California recently, a teenage boy
was tappingmatch heads into a2-foot-
long metal pipe in the living room
while his friend held the "rocket."
Suddenly, the rocket-stuffed with the
heads from approximately 20 boxes
of matches-exploded, probably from
the friction. The blast blew out
windows, started a fire, and hurled
both boys a distance of 10 feet. One
was severely injured. The other died
on the way to the hospital. A hole
was blown in his chest.
It can happen here-and did re-
cently, though fortunately not with
such serious consequences. A Diablo
Heights teenager had a similar home-
made rocket go off while he was
tapping match heads into a metal
container. He suffered only face
burns but the screw driver he was
using to poke the match heads into
the container was blown through the
ceiling of his bedroom.
Match heads when ignited in a
confined container of any sort have
tremendous explosive force-far more
than the average child or teenager
can imagine. Each year, many young-
sters are maimed, blinded, or killed
by such explosions.
Aniateur rocketry is extremely
dangerous and many more youngsters
are experimenting with it in back
yards, empty lots and even in their
homes, than is generally realized by
parents. The president of the Rocket-
dyne Corp., which builds engines for
many ballistic missiles, commented,

"I wouldn't even let my staff of
trained specialists try the things some
of these kids are doing with rockets."
The Virginia Beach, Va., father of
a teenager named Jonathan, who was
killed while experimenting with a
match head rocket said after the
tragic accident, "Why didn't I warn
Jonathan? Why didn't I sit down and
explain to him how the tiniest such
explosion can't be controlled-and
that anyone who tried such an experi-
ment, even a trained scientist, would
be risking his life?"

high noon, to ask God to give us the
wisdom and courage to meet and
solve the problems of our time.

Joint Crusade

Provides Funds

For 4 Agencies

The Federal Service Joint Crusade
to raise funds for four international
voluntary agencies is under way
throughout the Canal Zone. All U.S.
Government agencies in the Canal
Zone will participate in the fund
raising drive, which will run through
April 2.
The international voluntary agen-
cies for which funds are to be raised
are: CARE, Radio Free Europe, the
American-Korean Foundation, and
Project Hope. These international
voluntary agencies are private, non-
profit organizations depending on the
public's generous support to help
others gain freedom from disease,
poverty, starvation, and oppression.
CARE, through its many aid pro-
grams, fights starvation, poverty,
disease, and illiteracy.
Radio Free Europe is a free press
in exile for 80 million captive people
in the Soviet satellite countries of
Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia,
Rumania, and Bulgaria.
The American-Korean Foundation
is giving South Koreans the foothold
they need to become self-sufficient
members of the free world com-
Project Hope's medical ship fights
disease and suffering in all its ports
of call.
On-the-job solicitation for this
year's campaign will be conducted by

ama Canal organization, and other
U.S. Government agencies in the

Employees' Views Sought

In Federal Salary Study

The views of individual U.S. Gov-
ernment civilian employees and uni-
formed personnel are invited by the
new Presidential panel which is
studying Federal salary rates.
The panel, set up by President
Lvndon B. Johnson 2 weeks ago, is
headed by Marion B. Folsom, former
Health, Education, and Welfare De-
partment Secretary during the Eisen-
hower days. Distinguished public
members and officers of the executive
branch are panel members.
An unusual step was taken by the
panel at its first meeting when it
approved a directive to all Federal
agency heads, asking them to post
notices on agency bulletin boards,
both in Washington and the field,
soliciting individual Federal employee
opinion on the salary issue.
The President's Special Panel on
Federal Salaries will receive and con-
sider any views on Federal salaries
which interested personnel transmit
in writing. No communication or
supporting material will be returned,
and none will be considered if re-
ceived after March 12. Letters should
be addressed:

Federal Salaries

The panel has an April 1 deadline
to complete its salary study and rec-
ommend to the President whether
there should be new raises for uni-
formed personnel and for postal and
classified civilian employees.
As part of its study, the panel
also will consult with Federal em-

ployee organizations-as distinct from
President Johnson's budget message
touched on the matter of Government
pay and he announced at that time
that he was appointing a special panel
to make a prompt review of the
present situation.
He said: "Federal pay raises in the
past 3 years have moved us much
nearer to realizing the principle that
civilian pay rates should be compara-
ble to those in private enterprise for
the same levels of work and that
changes in pay and allowances of
members of the uniformed forces
should keep pace with advances in
the general economy."

Con la sola excepci6n de las pa-
cientes de obstetricia, todos los pa-
cientes de cirugia seran Ilevados al

brero. Esta es una operaci6n delicada,

zaci6n de los pacientes en el escritorio

No hace much un adolescent en California golpeaba con un tubo de
metal de 2 pies de largo sobre la cabeza de unos f6sforos en la sala de su
casa, mientras que su amiguito sostenia el "cohete." Sfibitamente el cohete
-repleto de cabezas de f6sforos-explot6, debido quizas a la fricci6n.
La explosion vo16 las ventanas, prendi6 un fuego y lanz6 ambos
chicos a unos 10 pies de distancia. El uno result gravemente herido;
el otro muri6 via al hospital con un foramen abierto sobre el pecho.

El peligro de tales aconteceres estA
latente; pueden producirse en cual-
quier sitio, aun aqui.
Recientemente un adolescent en
Diablo Heights sufri6 una experien-
cia similar. Un cohete o petardo, de
manufacture casera, estall6 mientras
61 introducia cabezas de f6sforos en
el recipient metAlico. Sufri6 quema-
duras en la faz y el destornillador
que empleaba le salt6 de las manos
y horad6 un hueco en el cielo raso de
su cuarto.

Las cabezas de f6sforo-cuando se
encienden dentro de un espacio cons-
trefiido-obtiene una fuerza explosive
tremebunda. Mucho superior a la
que es dable imaginarse.

Todos los afios se registran casos
de adolescents y nifos que quedan
mancos, lisiados o ciegos por explo-
siones de esa naturaleza . y
algunos hasta pierden la vida.
El lanzamiento de cohetes al espa-
cio que tanto ha despertado la curio-
sidad juvenile, es a todas luces peli-
grosisimo. Muchos j6venes ensayan
la hechura de sus propios cohetes
caseros y en ello arriesgan temera-
riamente el pellejo y la vida.

El president de la Rocketdyne
Corp., firma que fabric motors para
proyectiles dirigidos, tiene esto que
decir: "Ni a mi personal de especia-
listas en balistica permitiria realizar
las cosas que esos nifios acometen."

El infortunado padre de Virginia
Beach, Virginia, que perdi6 a su hijo
Jonathan en esta forma, se lamen-
taba: "Por qu6 le permit juegos tan
peligrosos. He debido advertirle el
peligro a que se exponia."

se narran en esta cr6nica. La pequefia Tina Boostrom, de 8 afios, aparece junto al vehiculo.

"Un poco de inteligencia, una mi-
gajita de espiritu aventurero, y pasa-
portes y visas vAlidas, mucha infor-
maci6n y una guia de viajes de la
Asociaci6n Americana de Automovi-
listas" son los ingredients mas acon-
sejables para quienes proyectan una
gira a traves de la Carretera Intera-
mericana, seg6n los esposos D. N.
Boostrom, de Gamboa, quienes ban
recorrido el trayecto en ambas direc-
ciones-Norte y Sur.
En su mis reciente excursion, los
Boostroms viajaron en una casa sobre
ruedas, de 4 toneladas de peso y con
acomodo para seis personas, saliendo
de Brown City, Michigan, poblaci6n
que dista 80 millas al norte de Detroit.
Viajaron por various Estados antes de
cubrir la Carretera Interamericana
hasta el Istmo.
La Casa M6vil es nueva en el esce-
nario local. Vista desde fuera pare-
ce un 6mnibus, al punto que la gente
le hace sefiales para que se detenga y
abordarla. Por dentro ofrece c6modos
asientos, comedorcito, estufa, refrige-
radora, lavadero, gabinetes de cocina
y literas, bano de ducha y armarios
empotrados en la pared.
El matrimonio Boostrom cruz6 la
frontera mexicana en Laredo, Tejas.
Las primeras 2 millas estan bordea-
das de flores, pero de alli en adelante
se reduce a double via estrecha pero
bien pavimentada, que asciende del
bajoplano polvoriento hasta el Monte
Candela. Al aproximarse a Monterrey,
la carretera se torna de nuevo en
boulevard de cuatro canchas. Repen-
tinamente se encuentran various cami-
nos, pero sin las sefiales indicativas
de la Carretera 40, que es la que hay
que tomar para seguir a Saltillo.
Del Distrito Federal a Puebla hay
una nueva carretera dividida en el
centro, bajo patrullaje constant de
una flota de carros verdes del Depar-
tamento de Turismo de M6xico, con

mecAnicos bilingiies listos a prestar
ayuda al viajero en cuanto puedan.
El descenso hacia Arriaga Las Cru-
ces, al encuentro de la Carretera 200,
o Ruta Costanera, mete miedo al
timorato, y ciertamente no es como
para alegrarse; dichosamente es cosa
que lleva pocos minutes. De Arriaga
a la frontera guatemalteca son 170
millas de buena carretera.
Se sale de M6xico sin mayores pro-
blemas pero la aduana de Guate-
mala-todo lo cortes que se quiera-
lleva demasiado tiempo en llenar
todas las formalidades. Como si ello
fuera poco, hay un cobro por el ve-
hiculo y otro cada pasajero. La licen-
cia del carro es cubierta por una lAmi-
na que dice Turista y se fumiga el
vehiculo por dentro y por fuera.
El camino de la frontera a Esquin-
tla v de alli a la ciudad de Guatemala
es bueno y amplio. Desdichada-
mente han preferido la ruta 14 que
pasa por Antigua, que si en Apocas
pasadas estuvo pavimentada, ya no
lo esta, siendo ahora una especie de
trocha que serpea por pequefios po-
blados, y obliga a vadear rios y se
incrusta a la ladera de la montafia.
En la 6poca lluviosa ese sendero es
intransitable y, ain bajo condiciones
6ptimas, se hace dfficil pasar o cru-
zarse con otro vehiculo.
Los Boostrom retornaron a la Ca-
rretera Interamericana en La Uni6n,
El Salvador. Alli el camino esti todo
pavimentado y, generamente, en bue-
nas condiciones, solo que "hay que
pelar el ojo en tramos donde circulan
ganado, peatones, perros, cerdos, ga-
llinas y burros, dejando poco espacio
para pasar."
Las carreteras en Nicaragua son
excelentes, except el tramo que va
de Nandaime a Rivas.
El trecho mas largo sin pavimentar
en today la Carretera Interamericana
es el de 135 millas a trav6s de Costa
Rica hasta la frontera con Panama,

se encuentra en PanamA. Son las 79

Adelanta trabajo en derrumbe: La linea de puntos en esta fotografia muestra (N9 1) el Area de la extension sur
del Derrumbe Cartagena, justamente al norte de las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel, donde estA trabajando la Divisi6n
de Dragas. El Area de la linea de puntos negros en el agua sefiala la antigua base del derrumbe bajo el agua.
La draga Mindi ha estado moviendose hacia adentro, en la direcci6n de la flecha, removiendo esta porci6n del
derrumbe bajo el agua. Cuando la fotografia fue tomada, esta parte del trabajo estaba por terminarse. El material
bajo el agua removido por la Mindi ha sido echado en el vaciadero de desperdicios (N9 2), que aparece en la
parte superior izquierda de la fotografia. Las Areas oscuras en el vaciadero de desperdicios estan formadas en su
mayoria de rocas. Las Areas claras son agua y cieno. El Area sobre el derrumbe (N9 3) en el centro, al frente,
sera removida por una draga mAs grande y se espera que este trabajo quede terminado para principios de marzo.
La porci6n blanca es un camino de construcci6n que seri removido. La carretera que aparece en la fotografia es
una carretera del Ej6rcito en la cima del Cerro Paraiso y no sera removida. Las lines en el Area del derrumbe son
huellas de un tractor usado para emparejar la superficie del Area del derrumbe, para que desaguara mejor.
