Highway Changing

Nations' Economy

In the jungle that extends between
Panama and Colombia an army of
engineers and topographers is trying
to bridge the Darien Gap, the major
obstacle to the termination of the
Panamerican Highway. When this
study of exploration and localization
is concluded, and construction work
proceeds on this section, which still
will take some years, the Americas
will be connected and Latin America
will be linked by a modern highway
of some 15,000 kilometers, from the
United States-Mexico boundary to
Argentina. The capitals of all the
countries of Central and South
America then will be truly united.
The idea of uniting the Americas
began with the dream of a railroad
in 1880, but this idea was abandoned
in favor of a highway whose con-
struction was started in 1930. During
the next decade notable progress was
made. The Second World War stimu-
lated interest in this highway, and at
the present time only a section of
some 700 kilometers is unfinished.
Now the highway is not considered
as a single avenue of communication,
but as the nucleus of a vast network
of 45,000 kilometers of highways
that form the Panamerican highway
The Latin American fanners, prob-
ably, are the ones who have bene-
fited most through use of this great
highway system.
Where the Panamerican Highway
is the principal transportation artery,
tributary roads connect formerly
almost inaccessible farm regions with
the highway. New improvements
have been introduced in these areas
and new centers of population have

been established, the access roads
benefiting the farmers by enabling
them to expand their markets and
obtain better prices for harvests. New
farm industries also have been devel-
oped and contribute materially to
obtaining foreign exchange.
In Mexico, for example, the citrus
industry owes its prosperity to the
Panamerican Highway, since most of
the citrus fruits are grown along this
highway to Monterrey. In Guate-
mala, areas that formerly were com-
pletely isolated are being opened. In
the high altitudes along the high-
way, wheat is becoming a com-
mercial commodity, transported to
market by trucks. In the eastern sec-
tion of the highway, near El Salva-
dor, coffee and sugarcane are cul-
tivated extensively.
In the past 5 years, Panama also
has developed its citrus industry in
the Boquete area, where a road con-
nected with the Panamerican High-
way permits shipment of the fruit to
Panama City for sale in the Canal
Zone, or for export to the Far East
and to Europe.
Honduras, whose principal market
is the densely populated Republic
of El Salvador, had suffered for years
the lack of communications and the
country's fruits and vegetables were
transported to the border on mule-
back. Today trucks transport the
produce from Honduras to El Salva-
dor over the highway.
Nicaragua recently started an
extensive irrigation project along the
Panamerican Highway, for the grow-
ing of bananas for export and rice
for domestic consumption.

And Levels of Lakes Are ST1

The rainy season officially came
to the Isthmus the first days of May,
but not enough rain has fallen to
date to raise the lake levels any
where near the levels last year at
this time. So long as the lakes stay
low, the draft limitations are low.
In view of the continued fall of
the Gatun Lake level, the maximum
tropical fresh water draft restriction
that went into effect May 27 has
been revised to a still lower draft.
Effective July 5, vessels arriving at
the Panama Canal for transit will be

limited to a maximum tropical fresh
water draft of 35 feet, Capt. C. E.
Briggs, Jr., USN, Chief of the Canal's
Navigation Division, has announced.
He pointed out that it is predicted
that the Gatun Lake level during
this period will be dropping from 82
feet 6 inches to 82 feet.
Gatun Lake level on July 5 last
year was 86.08 feet and Madden
Lake was at 227.45 on July 5, 1964.
Madden Lake right now is at the
218.07 foot level.

Draft ... In W ater, a Breeze,

Or Maybe Suds from a Tap?

What's draft to you? To some it's
beer from a tap instead of a bottle or
can. It also may be a sketch, or an
outline of a drawing, a written order
for payment of money, a method of
recruiting soldiers, a stream of cold
air, or several other things.
To merchant shippers and the
Panama Canal draft is the depth of
a ship's keel below the surface of
the water.
Just as there are different kinds of
vessels to carry different kinds of
cargo, or combinations of cargo, ships
carrying this cargo require different
ship characteristics.
The Panama Canal is more inter-
ested in the draft of a vessel for
depth of water purposes than it is
for freeboardd" (the distance from
the water line to the deck) purposes
because the depth of the Canal varies
with the season of the year. When
lake level conditions permit, 39 feet
is the maximum allowable draft in
fresh water at the deepest point of
the vessel's submergence. This draft
is allowed ships which have transited
successfully at 38 feet 6 inches, and
whose hull conformation permits
passage through the locks at this
draft. These ships are usually 700 to
850 feet in length with beams of 97
to 102 feet.
One of the most important phases

Lake was 81.78, recorded the first
part of July 1957. Lake levels were
established in 1912 at Gatun Lake,
but the Gatun Lake waters didn't go
above the 80-foot level until July
The Panama Canal's hydrographer
notes that Gatun and Madden Lakes
were at a high level last year by the
1st of July, but heavy rains in 1964
had started about May 22. "Those
rains put a lot of water into the
lakes," he said, "and that's what
we're hoping for this year."

of the Navigation Division's work is
making sure that ships transiting the
Panama Canal are safely loaded
according to rules and regulations of
the Panama Canal, and making sure
they are not over their draft allow-
ance. Vessels with excess draft are
required to correct this, usually by
pumping out water, sometimes by
unloading or shifting cargo or fuel.

but particularly for those who oper-
ate boats less than 26 feet in length,
so often moved by trailer to the point
of use. Safety as well as courtesy is
one of the major themes of the film,

Five Rules for Fun Afloat

During Safe Boating Week-and
all through the year-Canal Zone
pleasure boaters are urged to remem-
ber five rules for more fun afloat,
according to John E. Ridge, Jr., pres-
ident of the Gorgona Island Club and
display chairman of this year's Safe
Boating Week Committee. The five
rules are:
Don't overload. Know and observe
the weight capacity of your boat.
Watch the weather. When a storm
approaches, head for shore imme-
Keep alert. Watch for rocks, logs,
snags, floating debris, other boats,
and swimmers.
Don't stand up in a small boat. If
you must, move slowly, keep low.

You cannot become really success-
ful in anything until you become big
enough to blame yourself for your
own mistakes and reverses.

Avoid high-speed turns. Think
ahead; slow down before changing
Remember. Safe boating is fun
during Safe Boating Week, July 4
through 10-and all the time!

Draft? What Kind?
(Continued from p. 1)

parallel lines orrn the side of every
oceangoing vessel, serves as the basic
loading guide for the ship, showing
the depth into the water thatfit-can
be loaded'.
There are' several kinds of draft,
depending on water and weather
conditions. Summer draft (indicated
on the Plimsoll line by the letter S)-
from the center line of the Plimsoll
mark to the bottom of the hull of
a ship-is used as the reference draft
for all other: conditions. It is also
called full load draft or maximum
draft at summer conditions.
Tropical Z6ne draft is an addi-
tional allowance added to summer
draft for ships sailing in tropical
waters. Fresh water allowance is the
amount a ship will sink in going from
salt water to fresh water. Going from
salt water to fresh water increases
the draft approximately one-fourth
inch per foot of draft. The lesser
density of fresh water permits the
ship to sink deeper in the water.
Tropical fresh water allowance is
the maximum draft for vessels sail-
ing in tropical zones in fresh water,
as is the case of a ship in the Panama
Canal. Because the ship must pass
through fresh tropical water at the
Canal, the safe loading line at the
top of the Plimsoll mark is the one
which draws the most attention from
Canal Zone officials. The ship can
be loaded to the top of this line,
provided the Plimsoll load line draft
does not exceed the maximum allow-
able Panama Canal draft.
Before: a large ship makes its first
transit through the Panama Canal, a
diagram of a cross-section of its hull
at its widest and deepest part is
super-imposed. on: a diagram, to the
same scale, of the most restrictive
lockssection. By sliding the diagram
up or down, a maximum safe allow-
able draft for passage through the
locks is calculated.
Draft is important to owners of
large ships since the increase of per-
missible draft means an increase in
the loading factor of up to 180 tons
,per inch. A foot of draft is worth
about $10,000 in earnings to a. ship

operator on each voyage.

La Carretera Panamericana es Esencial

Para el Desarrollo Agricola de Latinoamerica

En la jungla que se extiende entire
PanamA y Colombia, un ej6rcito de
ingenieros y top6grafos trata de "des-
tapar" el Ilamado Tap6n del Darien,
el mayor obstaculo que se opone a
la terminaci6n de la Carretera Pana-
mericana. Cuando este studio de
exploraci6n y localizaci6n quede con-
cluido y se proceda a la construcci'6n
de este tramo, lo cual todavia llevara
algunos afios, las Americas estarAn
conectadas y Latinoam6rica quedara
ligada por una modern carretera de
unos 15.000 kil6metros, desde la
frontera de Estados Unidos con
M6xico hasta Argentina, quedando
realmente unidas todas las capitals
del Continente Americano.
La idea de unir las Americas em-
pez6 con el suefio de un ferrocarril
en 1880, pero despu6s fue abando-
nado, pensindose mejor en una ca-

de una vasta red de 45.000 kil6me-
tros de carreteras que forman el Sis-
tema de Carreteras Panamericano.
Probablemente, quienes mAs se
han beneficiado con este gran siste-
ma de carreteras son los agricultores
En done la Carretera Panameri-
cana es la principal arteria de los
transportes, se han construido cami-
nos que como afluentes desembocan
en ella, conectandola con regions
agricolas que hasta hace poco eran
inaccesibles. No s6lo se han intro-
ducido nuevos cultivos en esas Areas
y establecido nuevos centros de po-
blaci6n, sino que los caminos de
acceso hacen possible a los agricul-
tores expandir sus mercados y mejo-
rar los precious de sus cosechas.
A menudo el resultado ya ha sido el
desarrollo de nuevas industries agri-
colas que contribuyen materialmente

estAn abriendose nuevas Areas antes
completamente aisladas. En las zonas
altas cercanas a la carretera, el trigo
se esti convirtiendo en cosecha co-
mercial, cuyo transport al mercado
se hace por medio de camiones; sobre
la secci6n oriental de la carretera,
cercana a El Salvador, el cafe y la
caria de azuicar se cultivan extensa-
En los iltimos 5 afios tambien
PanamA ha desarrollado su industrial
citrica cerca de Boquete, donde un
camino conectado con la Carretera
Panamericana, permit la salida de
la fruta hacia la ciudad de Panami,
para su venta a la Zona del Canal,
o para ser exportada al Lejano Orien-
te y a Europa.
Honduras, cuyo principal mercado
es la densamente poblada naci6n de
El Salvador, habia sufrido durante
afios por falta de comunicaciones,
