Big Savings Seen

In "Excess" Buying

Potential annual savings of tens of
thousands of dollars, and rejuvena-
tion of the Panama Canal Industrial
Division shops where more than a
million dollars worth of machinery is
in great need of replacement, are
foreseen as direct results of an
arrangement whereby the Panama
Canal organization can obtain on a
priority basis excess property off-the-
shelf from U.S. Defense Supply
Agency sources.
The Panama Canal's Industrial
Division Shipyard is the only U.S.-
Government owned ship-repair facil-
ity in the Western Hemisphere south
of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and is
an integral part of the U.S. Navy
logistic support in the Central and
South American areas.
Official correspondence between
the Canal Zone and Washington
pointed out the serious problem the
Panama Canal organization faced
with the urgent need for moderniza-
tion of obsolete and worn-out ma-
chine tools and equipment at the
Mount Hope Industrial Division.
Most of these replacements, it was

pointed out, could be obtained
advantageously from stocks excess
to the Department of Defense.
The major part of the Industrial
Division's shipyard machinery has
been in continuous use from 20 to
40 years, and in recent years had
become so costly to maintain that
a large scale replacement program
was needed. However, in recent
years the capital program for the
Industrial Division was limited due
to shortage of funds. Replacement of
machine tools and equipment was
confined to those units deemed no
longer reparable.
Already received under the new
program have been a lathe and mill-
ing machine for Mount Hope. These
units, if purchased new, would cost
$75,000. They were obtained for
approximately $4,500 delivered to
the Canal Zone. This cost also in-
cluded rehabilitation of the tools to
place them in a reconditioned, new
condition. This was accomplished in
cooperation with the Defense In-

Sternless Ship? It Looked

More Like a Floating Pier

With only a few feet to spare on
each side, the 104-foot beam fore-
body of the Torrey Canyon, a huge
supertanker, squeezed through the
Panama Canal locks recently on its
way from Japan to Newport News,
The dead hulk, one of the few of
its size to be brought through the
Panama Canal, started its trip north-
bound at 6 a.m. guided by three
Panama Canal tugs and completed
the passage 12 hours later.
Panama Canal officials reported
that the job was done smoothly and
efficiently despite the difficulties of
keeping the big hulk under control
in such ticklish spots as the locks
and Gaillard Cut.
The Torrey Canyon, whose stern
was removed in a Japanese shipyard,
arrived in Balboa after the long
journey across the Pacific in tow of

.2.8"l.d* :r.i~i1'

the Dutch sea-going tug Jacob Van
Heemkerck. Panama Canal tugs took
over to help bring the strange craft
to dock.
Following the transit through the
Canal, the Jacob Van Heemkerck
took over again at Cristobal and the
Torrey Canyon was towed out of
Cristobal harbor about 6:30 p.m.
The Torrey Canyon and her sister
ship, the Lake Palourde, are owned
by the National Bulk Carriers. They
were jumboized in Japanese ship-
yards and had their sterns with their
main engines removed. They will be
converted in Newport News into
tankers approximately 855 feet in
The Lake Palourde is due to arrive
in Balboa October 1 in tow of the
Dutch tug Gronigen. Similar proce-
dures will be used to take the craft
through the Canal.

She's a few days early, but she wanted to be first in line to deliver her personal contribution to the 1966 Canal
Zone Area Combined Federal Campaign. The campaign will open September 27 and end November 6.

The Combined Federal Campaign:

What Your Role Means to Others

If you live in the Canal Zone,
someone will hand you an envelope
4 days from now.
Inside will be two forms. On both,
at the right, there is a United Fund
symbol; at the left, the symbol
of the International Service Agen-
cies. Together they form the 1966
Canal Zone Area Combined Federal
Campaign. And that means once-a-
year giving instead of the two cam-
paigns held in past years.
Twenty-five agencies that need
help are counting on your envelope-
and others-to carry on a community
What you do with the forms-one
is for making a cash contribution,
one in case you want to use payroll
deduction-may mean the difference

perate solitude or being led surely

limited, place in society.

A sternless tanker named the Torrey Canyon is shown entering Balboa Harbor after a long journey from Japan

Hundreds of Canal Employees

Will Remember Hurricane "Betsy"

Hurricane Betsy ran amok thou-
sands of miles from the Canal Zone-
but several hundred present or
former Panama Canal employees
felt the storm's effect. Most of the
203 passengers who arrived from
New Orleans on the SS Cristobal
had been in the hurricane area, as
had the 128 crew members of the
vessel, and each had been affected
in some way.
Arthur Wynne, accounting officer
in the New Orleans office, who had
lived and worked in the Canal Zone
for some 25 years, was one of those
in the stricken city who lost every-
thing. He and his wife raced ahead
of the rising waters with only the
clothes they were wearing, and with
Mrs. Wynne shoeless. They finally
took refuge in the home of the
SS Cristobal's purser, Robert Hill.
Mrs. Philip J. Steers, Jr., wife of
the Panama Canal Comptroller, and
their 2-year-old daughter, Marian,
also were unexpected guests at the.
Hill home. Mrs. Steers and Marian
were to have been guests of Mr. and
Mrs. Wynne until sailing time.
The Wynnes had resided in a
pretty area, between two levees-
until Betsy paid New Orleans a des-
tructive visit, pushing floodwaters
ahead of her. The house reportedly
was still under water, and in a
sealed-off area early this week.
The residence, in Chalmette,
St. Bernard's parish, was rented from
Orlando (Dick) Sena, employment
placement and relations specialist of
the Panama Canal's Personnel Bu-
reau, when Mr. and Mrs. Sena and
three children came to the Canal
Zone to reside.
Dick Sena planned to go to New
Orleans this week to see how much
damage had been done. He had

occupied the brick veneer house only
a year before renting to the Wynnes
and coming to the Isthmus. The
area is where the poisonous water
snakes, mad dogs, and rodents were
The Thursday night of the storm,
Mr. and Mrs. Wynne were at home,
watching the sweep of the hurricane
and thankful they weren't out in it.
Suddenly they felt water about their
ankles. They dashed out, ahead of
the sweep of rising water, and
walked 7 miles before a shelter was
found. The shelter was temporary
indeed. They were removed from
the second story, spent a brief time
on board the SS Cristobal, and then
went to the Hills. They are reported
to have lost everything. Furnishings,
clothes, TV, and a new car. Lost,
too, was a car belonging to William
E. LeBrun of the Panama Canal's
Internal Security Office that had
been in the care of the Wynnes.
A number of the Cristobal's crew
members lost their homes and house-
hold possessions, but hardest hit was
one of the stewards, who lost two of
his children.
At least one of the ship's officers
was among those who took refuge
for a while at the U.S. Army base
in the pier area. In that area alone,
it is estimated some 6,500 people
were massed.
One of the important factors was
the tremendous help individuals
were given by other individuals,
said one of the ship's officers. Orga-
nized help was unable to reach many
areas, but people of all races, colors
and creeds pitched in to lend helping
Many of the members of staffs at
the New Orleans hotels were trapped

Winner of Scholarship

Has Her Course Charted

"I have wanted to be a nurse since
grade school and was surprised and
proud to receive the first scholarship
awarded by the American Legion
Auxiliary for outstanding service in
the Pink Girl program.
"My ambition? I have a great
desire to specialize in surgery and
travel on a hospital mercy ship
throughout Central America," said
Jane Ann Faris, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Ernest E. Faris of Margarita,
when queried about the scholarship
and her plans for the future.
Jane Ann, a graduate of Cristobal
High School in the Class of 1965,
was presented the $200 nursing
career scholarship of American
Legion Auxiliary Elbert S. Waid
Unit by Mrs. Louise Griffon, chair-
man. She plans to attend Charity
Hospital School of Nursing in New
Orleans and, on completion of the
3-year course, will work for her
Bachelor of Science in Nursing
She was born in the Canal Zone
and attended Canal Zone schools.
She was initiated into the Nurses'
Aide Club when a freshman at Cris-
tobal High School and that summer
was a Pink Girl for the first time.
When she was a sophomore, she was
a member of the initiation committee
and as a Cristobal High School

junior was historian and publicity
chairman of the Pink Girls' Club.
Jane Ann was elected president of
the Pink Girls during her senior year
at Cristobal High and during her
term of office the club was chartered
nationally with the National League
of Nursing. The name was changed
to the Future Nurses of America
Club and a record high of 72 new
members was initiated.
Summing up her experiences as a
Pink Girl, Jane Ann said "You meet
people from all over the world. The
patients' ages range from 1 to 90,
and there is no feeling so wonderful
as that of helping someone who turns
to you for assistance."

President Stresses

Role of Individual

In Fire Prevention
The "tragic waste of human and
material resources" caused by fire is
avoidable, President Lyndon B.
Johnson said, and he urged support
for the effort of fire departments and
other agencies in a proclamation
declaring Fire Prevention Week.
A special effort is urged for the
week beginning October 3 to in-
tensify activities that will prevent
fires. "Community fire prevention
programs, effectively conducted,
have contributed substantially to
local and national development by
reducing sharply the number of
destructive fires," the President
"Further progress can be made if
every individual recognizes his re-
sponsibility for eliminating fire
hazards and for participating in
community fire prevention programs
and related activities," he continued
in the proclamation.
The President called on the Na-
tional Red Cross, business, labor and
farm organizations, as well as
schools, civic groups, and public in-
formation agencies to observe the
week, to provide safety information
and to enlist the active participation
of all citizens in preventing fires by
year-round alertness.

Hydrofoil Operating

In Baltimore Harbor
There's something new in one of
our oldest cities.
A hydrofoil now is being used
commercially for tours of the Balti-
more harbor. Where does it go?-
among other places, to Forts
McHenry and Carroll.
The daily excursions, a highlight
for tourists, offer a good look at the
harbor and its activity, and also of
several pages in the history of the
United States.

How Far to Bethlehem? by Nora
Lofts, is a retelling of the timeless
story of Mary and Joseph, the birth
of Christ and the successful journey
of the three wise men. This is a
beautifully written account by one of
England's most successful novelists.
Bruce Catton's Never Call Retreat
is the final volume of his Centennial
History of the Civil War, a project
which he started in 1955. Never Call
Retreat covers the war from Fred-
ericksburg on to the death of Lin-
coln and the end of the war. This is
a fine piece of writing and a sub-
stantial contribution to books on the
period. Civil War buffs can't afford
to miss it.
Hive of Glass is a suspense novel
by P. M. Hubbard, a some-time con-
tributor to Punch and author of
several mystery novels. This one is
the story of an antique-glass col-
lector whose mania leads him and
the story to a chilling climax. Punch
reports this story as "quiet but ab-
sorbing until its violent ending. . .

I Most attractively written." Readers
will surely agree.
The Man With the Golden Gun
is the last James Bond novel that the
late Ian Fleming wrote. It was com-
pleted shortly before his death in
August 1964, and is the 13th in the
James Bond series. In this last
thriller, Bond returns to head-
quarters after a loss of memory,
having been brainwashed by Soviet
captors. This one is a real thriller.
In The Memoirs of an Amnesiac,
Oscar Levant, raconteur, musician,
and actor tells about his Tin Pan
Alley, "Information Please," and
Hollywood days. His sardonic wit
may startle and annoy readers-but
it will not bore them. Peppered
throughout are recollections of the
famous and infamous people he has
known. As Levant writes of his life
over four decades, the recent past
comes alive with anecdotes of Harpo
Marx, Toscanini, Aldous Huxley, Al
Jolson, and Leonard Bernstein. This
book offers the reader an unusual
and unforgettable experience.

It's Always Christmas -

At the Coates' House 4,I

It's Christmas all year 'round at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis L.
Coate of Catun. No matter what
month the calendar may say, there's
always a Christmas tree being trim-
med or Christmas stockings being
decorated, or a new Christmas dec-
oration being designed.
Curtis Coate, an electrician by
trade, is a Panama Canal control
house operator. He's also an artist,
as is Mrs. Coate. And they work
together to create things of beauty.
One of the unusual items they
completed just prior to leaving for a
States vacation was a Christmas tree,
which will be seen at the Cristobal
Woman's Club bazaar. This Christ-
mas tree was formed of soft white
cotton, shirred with gold cord.
Instead of tinsel and colored lights
and glittering decorations, this spe-
cial Christmas tree-as befits a tree-
is filled with birds.
Purple, red, yellow, black, orange,
and deep blue birds. Birds with con-
trasting wings trimmed with beads
and sequins and with sequin eyes.
Here and there on the tree are airy
butterflies and roses made of satiny
Each little bird, alone, took an
hour and a half to fashion.
Another Christmas tree is dec-
orated with tight coils of colored
crepe paper twists, glued into place.
Macaroni is the ingredient used to
fashion a most elegant-appearing
Christmas tree. "We just glued
macaroni onto a styrofoam cone and
sprayed it all with color and glitter,"
the Coates say matter-of-factly.
Original ideas were used on the
Christmas stockings they fashioned
of felt in gay colors. One particularly
charming stocking had a little train
with lifesaver-sort of wheels running
up the stocking's length on a rickrack
Their handicraft is not confined
entirely to Christmas items. Look in

any room in the Coate house, and
articles will be seen that were made
by Mr. and Mrs. Coate. Hanging on
the wall in the living room is a
beautiful bird of paradise. Curtis
Coate fashioned the wall hanging,
using crushed glass in colors where
an artist would use paints. Another
wall hanging is a beautiful Madonna
worked in felt. "I made the pattern
from a picture in a magazine," he
He also is a student of old tradi-
tional Panama and pre-Colombian
design and frequents the Panama
museum for new ideas using age-old
Mrs. Coate mentioned, one day,
that she would like a small cabinet
that she could move into the closet
with materials when she finished
using them. Her husband fashioned
the movable cabinet in jig-time, and
decorated either end with pre-
Colombian art. "He even decorated
a carrying box for a pet cat," Mrs.
Coate recalls, smilingly.
When in the States they frequent
antique shops. They collect old
prints, old bottles-anything that is
old and beautiful, and useful. An
ancient dolls' trunk holds Mrs.
Coate's sewing materials, and an
ancient clock in their living room
stands on an equally ancient dolls'
chest of drawers.

Material intended for publica-
tion in THE SPILLW AY should be
received in the Panama Canal
Press Office not later than Monday
afternoon of the week of publica-
tion. Only urgent material can be
received and processed for use the
same week as late as noon Tues-
day. Mail material to PANAM
Heights, C.Z.

Unusual designs intrigue Mr. and Mrs. Curtis L. Coate of Gatun, in whose home it's always Christmas. Mrs. Coate
holds an unusual star-shaped decoration that employs colored yarn, while her husband displays an "Ojo de
Dios" that he fashioned following a Mexican design. On the table is a Christmas tree they both worked on,
with felt birds, butterflies and satin flowers used instead of the usual tinsel and colored ornaments.

Immunized for Influenza ?

Don't Delay It
The U.S. Public Health Service
expects an increased number of in-
fluenza cases during the winter of
1965-66 in the United States, Col.
Roosevelt Cafarelli, Health Director,
has announced.
He reiterated his previous recom-
mendations for vaccination of certain
groups of individuals who experience
a higher mortality from epidemic
influenza. These include:
1. Persons who suffer from
chronic diseases including dis-

Too Long
eases of the heart and circulatory
systems and the lungs.
2. Those persons in older age
groups. This recommendation is
based on the fact that in three
successive recent epidemics
there has been a moderate in-
crease in the influenza death
rate among people over 45 and
a marked increase in those over
65 years of age.
3. Pregnant women.
At Colonel Cafarelli's direction,
an Isthmian wide influenza immu-
nization program was conducted
during May 1965. Medical teams
visited the locks, ports, and other
work sites immunizing all employees
who wished immunization.
He now recommends that persons
planning a fall or winter vacation in
the United States and who have not
been immunized since 1963 should
receive two injections at 2 month in-
tervals. The second injection should
be received on or before mid-
December. For persons who received
a booster shot last year one injection
is sufficient.

ing on the Isthmus should receive
SI one or two injections of influenza

paration for the influenza season

Influenza injections are given free

Community Relations. This places
the Balboa High School Chapter
among the 176 top high school and
college chapters in the Nation.
Selections were made from the
more than 3,000 chapters chartered

project last year was operated several service projects, including

around a study of the Panama Canal
organization, with special stress
being given to the Civil Affairs
Bureau. Chiefs from the different
divisions of the Civil Affairs Bureau
were guest speakers at regular club

gram of beginning typewriting stu-
dents and a typewriting contest for
outstanding beginning typists chosen
from 11 different classes in Balboa
High School. Club members reported
their project in the form of a
mimeographed illustrated bulletin
highlighting the events of each club
meeting. This handbook was sub-
mitted as part of the application for
the national contest of club projects.
Chapter members were assisted by
the chairman of their Advisory Coim-
mittee, Dr. D. J. Paolucci, Deputy
Personnel Director (Staff); L. B.

Burnham, Supervisory Employee
Development Officer of the Per-
sonnel Bureau, and B. I. Everson,
Civil Affairs Bureau Director. Offi-
cers for the school year were Della

vice president; Jane Sumner, corres-
ponding secretary; Patsy Albritton,
recording secretary; and Susan Trim,
treasurer. Frank South served as the
handbook editor; Henry Garner,
testing program chairman; Mary
Miller, contest chairman; and Jerry
Hunt, chairman of the annual ban-
quet committee. Mrs. Katherine
Murphy, business teacher at Balboa
High School, was club sponsor.


Unit Foreman

Is Honored.

Ray Caldwell, foreman, Build-
ings and Public Works, Maintenance
Division, of the Panama Canal's En-
gineering and Construction Bureau,
has been presented an Outstanding
Performance Award for exemplary
service to the Panama Canal.
Caldwell soon will complete 30
years of distinguished Government
service, 25 of which will have been
with the Panama Canal. Prior to
joining the Canal organization, he
worked on construction of Madden
Dam and on Norris and Pickwick
Dams for the Tennessee Valley
Authority. He joined the Canal or-
ganization in May 1940 as a prin-
cipal foreman, construction and
maintenance, and rose through the
positions of general foreman and
chief foreman to his present position.
The certificate of commendation
presented him, together with a check
for $200, said: "He has established
an enviable record in field super-
vision of both construction and main-
tenance projects by his careful plan-
ning, organizing and management.
He required and received from co-
workers their very best efforts. His
unselfish devotion and dedication to
his work, to his coworkers, and to
his Government have been amply
demonstrated and documented.
"As an executive supervisor during
the past 10 years of a group of
approximately 400 employees, his
record and personal code is not one
of individual recognition, but rather
recognition for a coordinated team
During the 1963 locks overhaul
his force was practically doubled in
order to prepare the miter gate seats
for implementation of the 24-hour
outage concept.
He personally supervised con-
struction of the Curundu Junior High
School building complex and spent
untold hours outside the regular
workweek and on nonwork days,
particularly in the planning and
evaluating phases, to assure that the
school would be completed in the
minimum amount of time and at a
minimum cost.
In the civic field, Caldwell has
served as a member of the Selective
Service Board for years and has
taken an active interest in commu-
nity affairs.

Penwomen Planning

Oct. 2 Art Festival
The Panama and Canal Zone
Branch of the National League of
American Penwomen invites the
public to an Art Festival to be held
in the Little Gallery of the Tivoli
Guest House October 2. It is to be
an all day showing of what local
Penwomen have been producing
Art lovers who recall the outdoor
show on Steven's Circle in February
will remember the many beautiful
exhibits on display at that time.
Since then several new names have
been added to the roster of artists
belonging to the local branch of Pen-
women. Many of these talented
women are not only conscientious
homemakers, they also hold down
responsible full-time jobs.
Many of the artists will be on hand
to greet friends and to display their
work. Artists wishing to sell their
work will set their own prices. The

of battered New Orleans to boil all

failure at the Sewerage and Water
Board water purification plant put
the chlorinator out of commission.
Passengers who had waited out
the storm in outlying areas reported
seeing house trailers twisted, turned,
and jammed like lumber stacks on
Airline Highway. Windows were
torn from the Oschner Foundation
Hospital, and in Jefferson Parish
hardly a building was untouched,
they said. Large advertising signs
dangled menacingly and noisily over
most of the streets and highways of
the commercial section.
The SS Cristobal had docked in
New Orleans early Thursday morn-
ing. The storm started about 9 p.m.
that night. The Cristobal has only a
few dents as a souvenir of Betsy, but
other vessels near the mouth of the
Mississippi River didn't fare as well.
"Any ship that didn't get hit should
count itself lucky," said one of the
Cristobal's top level officers. One
shipping company reportedly lost
eight vessels during Betsy's rampage.

This program was set into motion
through the perseverance and efforts
of the Marine Bureau Director, Capt.
M. J. Prince, USN; Walter A. Dryja,
Assistant to Marine Director, and
Julius Grigore, Jr., Acting Chief,
Industrial Division.

Proud Industrial Division em-
ployees were among those watching
as Cecil Marie Bailey, wife of Ken-
neth L. Bailey, General Foreman
Boatbuilder, smashed a bottle of
Chagres -water on the bow of the
new Navigation Division launch and
christened her U.S. Lark.
The ceremony was held at the
Gamboa Launch Landing. Capt.
Mortimer J. Prince, USN, Marine
Director, Capt. Howard R. Johnson,
Acting Port Captain, Balboa, other
members of the Marine Bureau and
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau, and guests attended.
Burton E. Davis, Acting Chief,
Industrial Division, Master of Cer-
emonies, after greeting the guests,
gave a short history on the ancient
custom of christening ships. In
expressing appreciation to the Pan-
ama Canal boatbuilders, he said,
"Industrial Division boatbuilders
compare with the world's better
craftsmen in this trade." "By the
same token," he said, "for rugged-
ness of construction and integrity of
purpose, Panama Canal launches are
unique and have been among the
finest ever built for the purpose
Captain Prince congratulated the
Industrial Division boatbuilders for
their skill in boatbuilding and for the
magnificent job done in the construc-
tion of the Lark and said, "she will
be recognized as the culmination of
wooden boatbuilding at the Panama
The Lark, one of 60 wooden
launches built by the Panama Canal
Industrial Division since 1914-and
the last wooden launch to be built
by this organization-was con-
structed under the direction of Ken-
neth Bailey, master boatbuilder, at
the Gamboa Launch Repair Facility,

which is part of the Panama Canal
Industrial Division.
Seventeen wooden launches con-
structed before 1950 are still giving
excellent service on the Panama
Canal. One of these was constructed
in 1932. However, for economy
reasons, these launches will be re-
placed in the next 5 years by craft
made of fiberglass and aluminum
because of the high cost of main-
taining older wooden launches.
The U.S. Lark and her sister
launches built in recent years will be
serving the Panama Canal for the
next 20 years-possibly for the
remaining life of the locks canal.
Built from stem to stern by Indus-
trial Division employees, the 21-ton
U.S. Lark is 50 feet long with a beam
of 10.6 feet and a molded depth of
6.6 feet. The Lark is powered by a
Caterpillar Diesel 180 horsepower
turbocharged four cylinder engine
which gives her a normal operating
speed of 11 knots. She can carry 40
She was designed by Burton E.
Davis and is similar, except in power
plant, to the U.S. Dove, which was
launched in 1962. '
At the end of the launching cer-
emony the U.S. Lark was turned
over to Captain Johnson, who in
accepting her, expressed pride and
gratitude to those who constructed
her. The Lark will join the fleet of
small floating equipment required by
the Navigation Division to carry on
pilot, deckhand, and ship to shore
passenger service. She will be
stationed in Balboa.

lator Rolando Linares gave a resume

en casa cuando de repente se dieron
cuenta que esta se les inundaba.
Corrieron hacia afuera, huyendo del
agua que rapidamente subia y cami-
naron 7 millas antes de encontrar
refugio. Este refugio fue solamente
temporal, ya que tuvieron que salir
de 6l, pasando al Crist6bal donde
estuvieron alojados por corto tiempo
antes de trasladarse a la casa de la

perdieron todo lo que tenian. Sus
muebles, today la ropa, la television,

dente Lyndon B. Johnson, y solicit
apoyo para los esfuerzos de los cuer-
pos de bombers y otras agencies en
una proclamaci6n declarando la
Semana de Prevenci6n de Incendios.
Un esfuerzo especial es solicitado
para la semana que comienza el 3 de
octubre para intensificar las activida-
des que evitarAn incendios. "Los pro-
gramas comunales de prevenci6n de
incendios, bien dirigidos, han contri-
buido substancialmente al desarrollo
local y national al reducir pronta-
mente el numero de incendios des-
tructivos", declar6 el Presidente.

"Progresos posteriores pueden al-
canzarse si cada persona reconoce su
responsabilidad en la eliminaci6n de
peligros de incendio y por la partici-
paci6n en los programs comunales
de prevenci6n de incendios y activi-
dades relacionadas", continue di-
ciendo en la proclamaci6n.
El President exhort a la Cruz
Roja Nacional, a organizaciones co-
merciales, obreras y agricolas, lo
mismo que a las escuelas, grupos ci-
vicos y agencies de informaci6n p6-

narr6 brevemente la historic de la
vieia tradici6n de bautizar los barcos.
Expres6 gran afecto a los construe-
tores de botes del Canal de PanamA,
y dijo: "Los constructores de botes
de la Divisi6n Industrial se pueden
comparar con los mejores del mundo.
Refirikndome a lo mismo", dijo, "los
botes construidos en la Zona del
Canal de PanamA son 6nicos y muy
bien construidos para el fin conque
se han hecho".
El CapitAn Prince felicit6 a los
constructores de botes de la Divisi6n
Industrial por su destreza en cons-
trucciones de botes y por el trabajo
del Lark diciendo: "Este barco senr
reconocido como la culminaci6n en
la construcci6n de botes de madera
en el Canal de PanamA".
Lark, una de 60 lanchas de made-
ra construidas y lanzadas al agua
por la Divisi6n Industrial del Canal
de PanamA desde 1914-y la Altima
construcci6n de madera construida y
arrojada al agua por esta organiza-
ci6n-fue construida ba o la direc-
ci6n de Kenneth L. Bailey, maestro
en construcci6n de botes en el Taller
de Lanchas de Gamboa, que forma
parte de la Divisi6n Industrial.
Sesenta lanchas de madera fueron
construidas antes de 1950 y auin si-
guen prestando un excelente servicio
al Canal de PanamA. Una de estas
fue construida en 1932. Sin embargo,
por razones econ6micas, estas lan-
chas seran reemplazadas en los
pr6ximos 5 ailos, por lanchas hechas
de fibra de vidrio y aluminio, ya
que el mantenimiento de las lanchas
de madera es sumamente costoso.
El U.S. Lark y sus lanchas herma-
nas han sido construidas reciente-
mente y servirin al Canal de Pana-
mA durante los pr6ximos 20 anos,
posiblemente lo que le queda de vida
al Canal de esclusas.
Construida totalmente por los em-
pleados de la Divisi6n Industrial, la
Lark, de 21 toneladas, mide 50 pies
de largo con una manga de 10.6 pies
y una profundidad de 6.6 pies. La
Lark tiene un motor Diesel de 180
caballos de fuerza con 4 cilindros,
que le da una velocidad normal de
11 nudos. Puede Ilevar 40 pasajeros.
Al final de la ceremonia la U.S.

Volvi6 a hacer 6nfasis en la impor-
tancia de la vacuna para ciertos
grupos que mostraron una alta inci-
dencia de mortalidad durante las
epidemias de influenza.
Estos son:
1. Las personas que sufren
de enfermedades cr6nicas del
sistema circulatorio, del cora-
z6n o de los pulmones.
2. Las personas de edad
avanzada. En tres epidemias
anteriores se comprob6 un au-
mento moderado de mortalidad
en los individuos de mAs de 45
anos de edad y un aumento
marcado en las personas de mAs
de 65 afios de edad.
3. Las mujeres encinta.
En mayo de 1965, bajo la direc-
ci6n del Coronel Cafarelli, equipos
medicos visitaron varias Areas de tra-
bajo, en una campafia de immuniza-
ci6n en contra de la influenza. Los
empleados que deseaban vacunarse
recibieron la vacuna.
Se recomienda a todas las perso-
nas que piensan viajar a los Estados
Unidos durante el otoiio o invierno,
y que se vacunaron en 1963, se
vuelvan a vacunar ahora y de nuevo
dentro de 2 meses. La segunda va-
cuna durante la primera mitad del
mes de diciembre. Las personas que
recibieron un refuerzo de la vacuna
el aiio pasado s6lo necesitan vacu-
narse una vez mas.
Las personas que permanezcan en
Panama deben vacunarse una o dos
veces mas al principio de 1966.
Las vacunas en contra de la in-
fluenza no cuestan nada. Estas vacu-
nas se suministran en los Centros de
Salubridad de la Zona del Canal en
Balboa, Coco Solo, Gatun, Marga-
rita, Paraiso y Rainbow City.
