Mow Gatun

Lake Again
The Panama Canal Dredging Divi-
sion has launched a continuing chan-
nel clearing operation for the benefit
of more than 250 Panama residents
of the Gatun Lake towns of Pueblo
Nuevo, Calabazito, Mendoza, and
El Alto del Jobo.
The Panama farmers in these areas,
most of them rice growers, had an
ever-present problem of waterways
clogged by swiftly propagating
elodea, or common aquarium grass,
and appealed to the Canal Zone
authorities for help. The waterways
are their only "roads" to their market
in Colon.
Last October 10,000 pounds of
copper sulphate in crystal form was
used to clear the water passages.
In June the weeds again were
clogging the lake's waterways and
the villagers, mindful of the assist-
ance given them when they previ-
ously asked Canal Zone Governor,
Robert J. Fleming, Jr., for help, once
again appealed to Governor Fleming
for assistance.
This time 9,000 pounds of copper
sulphate were used by 10 Dredging
Division employees, working 3 days
in the lake regions. The four mayors
of the respective lake towns were
given a briefing on necessary pre-
cautions that had to be taken and
villagers were warned against per-
mitting castle to drink the lake water,
against swimming, or use of the water
for human consumption until the
waters were declared safe.
A Panama Canal chemist from the
Water and Laboratories Branch has
been testing the waters, as was done
a year ago, and will give the "all
safe" signal.
The Panama Canal Dredging Divi-
sion will make a continuous check on
weeds in the Gatun waterways from
now on, and weed clearance action
will be taken as required.

PC Employees

Bypassed by

Malaria Cases
Although no malaria cases have
been reported among Canal em-
ployees in 1965, 12 cases involving
non-employees have been reported
to the Health Bureau this year. Nine
of these occurred in June-some
within the Canal Zone. The last case
involving a Canal employee was in
Two Boy Scouts, on a hiking trip
along the Caribbean coast, were
sleeping on a beach at night when
they were bitten. Cases involving
three military enlisted men, two from
the Fort Sherman area and one from
Fort Clayton, were reported. Two
instances of the disease were dis-
covered in Vera Cruz, beyond
Howard AFB, one case the 4-year-
old son of a Canal employee. The
remaining two cases came from the
Villa CAceres and Arias Paredes areas
in Panama City.
Within the Canal Zone measures
are taken to eliminate mosquito
breeding by maintaining clean drains,
larviciding water bodies which can-
not be drained, and by applying res-
idual insecticides at land licensee
sites in accordance with the World
Health program of malaria eradica-

RP Firemen

Use Day Off

For Study

Ten volunteer firefighters from the
District of Chorrera, Republic of
Panama, have been coming to the
Canal Zone every Sunday since
June 20 to take a course of training
in basic specialized Canal Zone fire-
fighting methods and the use of fire
equipment. The firefighters in Cho-
rrera are volunteers and because
these are all working men, the classes
were scheduled for Sundays and each
lasts 4 hours.
The last class will be held Sunday,
July 25, and graduation will take
place August 1.
Only one corporal and one sergeant
are in the Chorrera Bomberos' class.
The remainder are lieutenants and
In terms of equipment and pro-
cedure, the training program is
tailored to the special needs of the
Chorrera District.
Canal Zone Fire Chief W. C.
Dolan and Mario Lasso S., comman-
der of the Chorrera District, coor-
dinated the course, which is given at
the Fire Division Training Grounds.
Those attending from the Cho-
rrera District are:
Captains Virgilio Alvendas and
Gilberto L6pez; First Lieutenants
Humberto A. Mazzola and Luis
Carlos Villa Noel; Second Lieu-
tenants Alfredo Minutto, Ricardo
Gibbs, Manuel Barrios and Luis
Lasso; Sgt. Andr6s Reyes; and Cpl.
Edwin Zamora.

Transit Time

At Record

Low in June
A memo from the boss is the
reason for those pleased smiles at
the Panama Canal's Locks Division
and at the Navigation Division.
The boss is Capt. M. J. Prince,
USN, Director of the Canal's Marine
Bureau, and the memo he sent was
of commendation and congratulation
to the personnel of these divisions
for their important help in the
achievement of a new high in effi-
cient transiting of ships through the
Panama Canal.
During the month of June 1965
a new record was established for
transiting vessels from deep water
to deep water. The Canal Zone
Waters Time of 12.1 hours is the
lowest attained since records were
In the average Canal Zone Waters
Time of only 12.1 hours, 32.5 ships
per day were transited. Even more
significant, transit time lock to lock
averaged 6.9 hours for the month.

Colon Fire

Corps Honors

Gov. Fleming
Canal Zone Governor Robert J.
Fleming, Jr., was awarded the highest
decoration of the Colon Fire Corps
at a reception that climaxed the cele-
bration of the Colon firefighters'
68th anniversary.
Col. Jos6 Dominador Bazin, Pan-
ama's Minister of Government and
Justice, who is First Commander of
the Colon Fire Corps, as personal
representative of the President of
the Republic of Panama, Marco A.
Robles, made the formal presenta-
tion of the Gold Honor and Merit
Medal in the Grade of Grand Cross
to Governor Fleming.
Colonel Bazan expressed his

Although official PanCanal and Navy photographers snapped away at a rapid rate during the recent visit of four
Japanese destroyers, the visitors reversed the process as they left the Canal. Highly photogenic Kanoko Schear,
Japanese-born wife of Gerard K. Schear, Administrative Services Division, provided familiar scenery for the seamen
as they headed toward the east coast of South America on their present goodwill tour.

Four days a week Henry S. Olton crowds himself into what may be the
smallest office in the Administration Building to microfilm more than 300,000
units of the Health Bureau's vital statistics.

The key to good mental health is the ability to handle
hostile feelings. There are gross forms that we see in
others and ought to be able to see in our own families.
Sometimes we are a little dishonest. Too often one
spouse or the other is actually deceitful. We violate
agreements. We run out on each other. We let each
other down.
We fail to be helpful at times when the other partner
is under great stress and just a little support would make
a lot of difference. We refuse to carry our part of the
load, which is a necessary part of the sharing in marriage
and having children.
What does it profit man if he is a genius in business
but a failure as a father because he has made his wife
carry all the parental load?
We neglect each other and feel no concern. We are
disagreeable. We nag or deflate. Hostility can be
expressed in thoughtlessness, inconsiderateness, selfish-
ness, and excessive demanding. A favorite of some
spouses is feeling sorry for themselves. One can be too
busy to do things for the other. Some wives are so busy
saving the community that their own families go to

It's a wonder Henry S. Olton
doesn't suffer from claustrophobia.
It's a wonder because 4 days a week
he sits in what may be the smallest
room in the Administration Building
and microfilms vital statistics records
for the Health Bureau.
The microfilming of the death and
birth certificates and the index cards
that accompany these files began
July 1 in what used to be a closet,
located next to Health Bureau offices
on the second floor. The project will
take approximately 60 days.
And Olton doesn't have any small
task in front of him: He must micro-
film 70,000 birth certificates, 55,000
death certificates, 100,000 birth index
cards and 80,000 death index cards.
The index cards contain reference to
a large portion of the certificate file
that was transferred to Panama

Some husbands spend too much time in activities their
wives cannct share. Though spouses cannot-and should
not-share everything they do, they can share much
more than is shared in most families, where even hobbies
often take them in different directions.
The interest our children develop depend upon the
consistency or the inconsistency of our attitudes toward
them and our investment in them-the time, energy, care,
thought, and, of course, love that we give them. They
identify with us automatically. In addition to looking
like us, they may even walk like us.
They incorporate our ideas without any awareness of
doing so. They also copy us consciously. When they see
us do something, they may try to do it just as we do.
Through these two processes we are responsible for
inculcating, or not inculcating, the traits I have named:
sincerity, honesty, integrity. As we patterned ourselves
after our parents, our children will pattern themselves
after us.
(William C. Menninger, reported in Menninger
Quarterly, extract from Journal of Occupa-
tional Medicine, March 1965.)

The typical Federal career em-

with at least 30 years service was
male, married, 65 years old, and en-
titled to an annuity of $402 a month
based on an average of about 38
years of Federal service.

There were 482,000 employee

civil service retirement rolls in mid-

Some 83,700 superior performance
awards were given last year through-

because the birth or death occurred
in the Republic.
The Health Bureau is having the
files microfilmed because the records
do not remain well preserved, even in
air conditioning. Also there is the
threat that fire would destroy the
files, the only complete record of
births and deaths in the Canal Zone.
The original files will remain in the
Health Bureau and the microfilm will
be on file in the Treasurer's vault in
the basement of the Administration
The files now being filmed, with
a 16-mm. camera, extend from 1904
to the present. Filming also will be
done on future vital statistics records.
An even more impressive job of
the same nature, the microfilming of
engineering drawings, will begin at
the end of this month. The Graphic
Branch will utilize $20,000 in new
equipment for this project.
The filming will produce a nega-
tive approximately the size of a post-
card for filing. In addition to being
more convenient for copying the
engineering drawings, the microfilm-
ing will save paper and more than
make up for operating costs.
Used in the project will be a new
105-mm. camera and a specialized

official publication of the Panama
Canal, Balboa Heights, C.Z. News
articles contained in it are made avail-
able to all interested news media for
whatever use they may wish to make
of them and may be reprinted without

When you want to take that "little ride" in the afternoon, this is the size car for it. It's a small version of the
famous Model T Ford, remembered with affection just before and during the 1920's as the Tin Lizzy. Owned by
Maj. Walter E. Meeks, of Quarry Heights, the scale model is powered by a lawn mower engine and it attracts
children quicker than a free Donald Duck movie. Pretty Patricia Janssen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Janssen,
of Ancon, agreed that the little convertible was cute, but a little small for more than one adult.

selected for this honor from among
the eligible applicants on the basis
of skills in camping, organization,
public speaking, poise, adaptability,
knowledge of scouting skills, the
community, and their country.
Susan is a junior at Balboa High
School. Jane is a junior in Cristobal
High School.
The girls traveled by plane to
Jacksonville, Fla., where they met
the rest of the girls in their patrol.
They joined the Round-Up special
train in Atlanta, Ga., and in Chicago
were joined by hundreds of other

"Old Faithful." Then they con-
tinued on to Athol, Idaho, where they
changed to buses, to go on to the
Round-Up site.
More than 9,000 senior Girl
Scouts and adults are at the encamp-
mnert At the camp the girls live and
work together, sharing skills and
different cultures. On their return,
they will share their new knowledge
and abilities with the local councils
and troops.
The girls will leave Athol on their
way home on July 28 and will arrive
in Jacksonville July 31. From there
they will return to the Canal Zone.

Quick Thinking

Earns Pilot

For his action in handling an emer-
gency last month while on duty as a
Panama Canal pilot aboard a transit-
ing ship, Capt. W. T. Clute was
awarded a commendation from Capt.
M. J. Prince, Marine Director.
Captain Clute was the pilot on the
SS Charles E. Wilson, a 102-foot
beam, 58,819-ton bulk carrier which
was proceeding southbound toward
Gatun Locks. Up ahead a small
tanker loaded with aviation gasoline
radioed that it had experienced
steering gear failure and needed
immediate tug assistance.
The only tug available at the time,
the Cardenas, was about to come
alongside the Wilson. Without hesita-
tion, Capt. Clute released the Carde-
nas to go to the aid of the helpless
tanker. He then turned the Wilson
into Gatun approach, steadied the
unwieldy vessel and stopped it a safe
distance from the tanker-all without
tug assistance. The maneuver was
accomplished only by skillful and
judicious use of anchors, engine
maneuvers and rudder orders.
Capt. Prince, in a letter to Capt.
Clute, declared that his intelligent
handling of the situation and his
"professional competence as a Pan-
ama Canal pilot . prevented what
could very well have been a disastrous

Victor Lasky's "The Ugly Russian"
is jdst what we've all been waiting
for-a book which provides us with
evidence that our Communist oppo-
site numbers are not always so clever,
shrewd, and all-seeing as we many
times are led to believe-and that
Americans abroad are not always the
obtuse bumblers so often depicted.
Lasky does not pretend that the
situation is not grave and that we
haven't made mistakes, but he does
give us something cheery (as well as
entertaining) to read about.
"Double for the Toff" is the latest
who-dun-it by John Creasy featuring
the elegant and brilliant English
amateur detective known as "the
Toff." This story involves two sepa-
rate crimes, which, it soon becomes
apparent to the Toff, have some con-
nection after all. Aficionados will
enjoy this one.
"Knights and Dragons" is a new
short novel by Elizabeth Spencer
much on the order of her successful
"The Light in The Piazza." This one
is the story of an American woman in
Italy whose marriage has proven to
be a failure. Miss Spencer uses the
same smooth style as in her earlier
"Piazza" but the characters fail to

come through effectively. Mainly, for
this reason, this new novel doesn't
enhance Miss Taylor's reputation. It
is worth reading, however, for its sen-

try which she obviously loves and for
her flowing narrative and polished
"Challenge for the Pacific" by
Robert Leckie is the first volume of
a proposed series to be edited by
Orville Prescott, and entitled: "The
Crossroads of World History." This
first in the series tells the story of the
battle which Leckie believes proved
to be the turning point in the Pacific
in World War II-the hundred days
during which Americans seized the
offensive from the Japanese at
Guadalcanal. This book is well docu-
mented and has a good index.

President Praises the P

President Johnson recently ex-
pressed his gratification with the
cost-reduction record Federal agen-
cies have made so far this fiscal year
and particularly his satisfaction "with
the response and performance of
many of the civilian agencies."
The President reported to the
Cabinet on March 25 identifiable
savings in excess of $3.3 billion, in-
cluding $2.8 billion saved by the
Defense Department and more than
a half billion dollars from civilian
Federal civilian employment in
the executive branch at the end of
February was at the lowest level
since April 1962-2,447,897-he said.
Moreover, Federal spending for the
first 8 months of the fiscal year
showed the largest drop in a decade
for the comparable period, running
$1.9 billion less than for the same
8 months last year, he noted.
The NASA program continues to
be outstanding, accounting for sav-
ings of over $73 million, or about
67 percent of the total for non-
defense agencies, he said. Post Office
and Agriculture reported about 9
percent savings each, with the re-
maining 15 percent divided among
25 departments and agencies.
Other significant savers the Pres-
ident commended were Atomic
Energy Commission, AID, HEW,
Treasury, Commerce, Interior, Jus-
tice, and TVA. Two small agencies-
NLRB and Federal Home Loan
Bank Board-also have significant
The President asked Defense
Secretary McNamara, whose tech-
niques he praised, to review aspects
of the cost-reduction program with
other Cabinet members.
He referred to Budget Bureau
guidelines that would produce a
common focus for cost-reduction
efforts. These direct department and

Merchandise Manager, Supply Divi-
sion, has issued a memorandum
stating that no flammable or com-
bustible liquids in plastic containers

will be gasoline, which must be
issued in approved safety cans

tities larger than 16 ounces will be
in glass or metal containers with
tight-fitting caps.

El Japon ha Sido la Nacion miiis

Productive en la Construccion

De Barcos Desde el Ano de 1956

El Jap6n ha sido desde 1956 la
naci6n mas productive en navega-
ci6n en el mundo, en t6rminos de
tonelaje de barcos botados al agua
anualmente. En 1964 los construc-
tores japoneses de barcos produjeron
el 40 por ciento del tonelaje total en
el mundo de los nuevos barcos
Los Estados Unidos produjeron
solamente 16 barcos mercantes con
un total de 223.800 toneladas brutas

producci6n. Otra raz6n la constitu-
yen los astilleros japoneses del pre-
sente y del future.
Los astilleros japoneses en la ac-
tualidad son capaces de botar un
tanquero de 50.000 toneladas en 5
meses. Los astilleros de las naciones
de Europa Occidental requieren
aproximadamente 12 meses. En el
actual mundo de enormes navios, los
japoneses prevent aun navios mis
grandes. Y, por lo tanto, estAn pre-
viendo la construcci6n de astilleros
mAs grandes.
Los enormes astilleros que los ja-
poneses producirAn pronto, serAn di-
sefiados para enfrentarse a las de-
mandas de barcos mAs grandes,
especialmente los gigantescos petro-
leros. Uno de los actuales astilleros
es capaz de construir barcos hasta de
160.000 toneladas, seglin se informa.
Los nuevos diques, que podrAn cons-
truir barcos de mAs de 150.000 tone-
ladas, han sido disefiados para redu-
cir los gastos de 10 a 20 por ciento.
Correas transportadoras que rodea-
rAn los diques llevarAn las distintas
piezas de construcci6n a su sitio
La botadura en los nuevos astille-
ros serA diferente. En vez de desli-
zarlos hacia el mar, el dique mismo
serA llenado con agua.
