Big Ships Volume

Heavy as Transits

Reach New Peaks

New 3-day and 4-day transit
records were listed for the Panama
Canal this week and big ship transits
were running at a record rate.
A total of 134 ships transited Octo-
ber 16-18 for a 3-day average of
44.7 and the 4-day total through
Tuesday was 174 ships for a 43.5
average. Both were new peaks.
With a daily transits average of
35.8 by early this week, October was
making a bid to become one of the
heaviest traffic volume months in the
Canal's history. Among these ships
were an all-time high number of

Non-U.S. Citizen

Life Insurance

Benefit Expanded
Expanded insurance benefits for
employees enrolled in the non-U.S.
citizen life insurance program, have
been announced by the Group
Insurance Board of the Canal Zone.
Effective November 1, employees
who have been enrolled in this pro-
gram for 4 consecutive years and
who retire after November 1, 1965
will be eligible for 25 percent of
their base plan life insurance benefits
without further premium payment
on the date they are retired under
the U.S. civil service retirement
Those classified as non-appro-
priated fund employees (such as
Army and Air Force Post Exchange
Service employees) who are enrolled
in the insurance program and who
meet the criteria under the U.S.
Civil Service Retirement Act, will be
eligible upon determination by the
Group Insurance Board.
Employees enrolled on or after
November 1 will be eligible for the
expanded benefits after 5 consecu-
tive years' enrollment under the life
insurance program.
Previously, insurance benefits
stopped for non-U.S. citizen em-
ployees when they were retired.
They were continued only for those
retiring on full disability. Those
retirees who are presently on waiver
of premium for total disability will
continue benefits as at present.

large ships and ships requiring
special handling.
Through October 18, there had
been 168 clear cut transits this
month-and if the same ratio con-
tinues the rest of the month the
total will be around 285. This would
compare with a total of only 177
clear cuts in the entire month of
October 1964 and a previous all-time
high of 225 clear cuts in May 1965.
Behind this heavy transits volume
pattern was a backlog to which 4
consecutive days of fog delays con-
tributed heavily, delaying transits as
much as 14 hours and 25 minutes.
On the third of the 4 consecutive
days of fog delays, average time in
Canal was at 40.7 highest on record.
More than 180 ships spent more
than 24 hours in Canal Zone waters
in September because of one-lane
operation at Miraflores Locks. With
the fog problem helping complicate
problems, more than 200 spent more
than 24 hours in Canal waters during
the first 14 days of October.
When a ship's transit has to be
postponed or interrupted due to fog,
in addition to the weather delay, all
ships behind it on the transit sched-
ule also are affected and Marine
Traffic Control must figure out the
most efficient way to "rebuild" the
transits pattern.
Miraflores Locks was returned to
full two-lane operation last weekend
after completion of overhaul work
which started September 5.
The southbound transits backlog
was cleared away Monday and
northbound transits were back to
normal Tuesday.

Effect of Holidays

On Store Hours Minor
There will be no change in retail
store hours because of holidays on
November 3 (Panama Independence
Day), November 11 (Veterans Day),
or November 25 (Thanksgiving)
The Margarita Retail Store and
Gamboa Retail Store Supermarket,
normally closed on Wednesdays,
will be open regular hours on
Wednesday, November 24.

Missing Manatee Sighted

In Lake Near Frijoles

Found: and gone again . one
stray manatee.
One day recently several men
were returning from the Atlantic to
the Pacific side of the Isthmus on
the noon train, practically dozing, as
the vistas were nothing more than
the customary train-window sights.
As the train passed a small lake
along the Canal northwest of Frijo-
les, one of the men exclaimed, "Say!
Isn't that a manatee?"
"Yes, it is!" commented a pas-
senger behind him, "but what in
tarnation is it doing in there?"
The rhetorical question came from
a man well qualified to voice it:
James P. MacLaren, Chief, Division
of Sanitation. It was he who was in
charge of bringing manatees from
Changuinola, Bocas del Toro, for
a mosquito control experiment on
the Chagres River near Camboa.
Five of them wandered away when

a fence across the manatee lagoon
broke in July 1964.
The five are believed to still be
roaming the Canal and Chagres
River areas and it was mere coinci-
dence that MacLaren was on the
train when the truant manatee was
sighted. Robert S. Bowen, of the
Internal Audit Branch of the Office
of the Comptroller was the first one
to see the big manatee surface and
go down with a decided flip of his
big tail as the train sped by the
small lake.
It's virtually certain that the
manatee seen is one of the imported
guests, for months of search had
failed to' discover any manatees in
Isthmus waters near the Canal.
Hence the importation.
There still are five adult manatees
and one baby manatee munching
away on aquatic growth in the
manatee lagoon.

Two of the big ones meet at Pedro Miguel Locks.

Levels of Lakes Still Low; Dry Season Near

Accounting Post
James H. Selby, less formally
known as "Jim," is looking forward
to golf, fishing and just taking life
easy when he retires this month from
his position as Chief of the Plant
Accounting Branch of the Panama
Canal's Accounting Division.
Mr. and Mrs. Selby will sail
October 31 from Cristobal on the
SS Cristobal and plan to go to
Phoenix, Ariz.
Selby was born in Gulfport, Miss.,
and worked in Gulfport as book-
keeper and cashier until 1929 when
he accepted a position with the
Standard Fruit Co. in La Ceiba,
Spanish Honduras.
Standard brought Jim to the Isth-
mus in 1930, and he has been here
ever since. From 1930 to 1934, he
was paymaster, bookkeeper and gen-
eral accountant for Standard Fruit
at Cristobal.
In July 1934 he accepted a posi-
tion as clerk with the Receiving and
Forwarding Agency, now the Ter-
minals Division of the Panama
Canal. He was promoted to account-
ing clerk and then transferred as an
accountant in the Accounting Func-
tion, Operation and Maintenance
Appropriation of the Panama Canal.
He was promoted in 1950 to
administrative assistant, Department
of Finance, now the Office of the
Comptroller, and then came another
promotion to governmental account-
ant in the Accounting Division,
followed by promotion to his present
He lived on the Atlantic side of
the Isthmus, in Cristobal, until 1947
and has been on the Pacific side the
past 18 years.
Mr. and Mrs. Selby are the parents
of three children, all in the United
States. One daughter is married and
has three children of her own.
A dinner-dance at the Quarry
Heights Officers' Club is scheduled
Saturday as a retirement party for
Selby. Music for the evening will
be by Lucho Azcirraga.

Despite some increase in rainfall
during September and early October,
the level of Gatun Lake hovered
around the 84.50-foot mark-approxi-
mately 2 feet below its level this
time last year and nearly 3 feet
below maximum.
The level of Madden Lake stood
at 232 feet, more than 11 feet below
the level reported in October last
year. The maximum level for
Madden Lake, which should be
reached by the end of the rainy
season in December, is 252 feet.
Rainfall increased slightly during
September and October but precipi-
tation has not been heavy enough
over the watershed area to greatly
affect the runoff into the Gatun Lake
According to the September re-
port of the Panama Canal Chief
Hydrographer, total runoff from the
Gatun Lake basin was 12 percent
below average and September was
the 12th consecutive month with
below normal runoff.
The accumulated total runoff from
the Gatun Lake basin since Decem-
ber 1964, through September 1965,
amounted to 2,016,552 acre-feet, or
27 percent below normal and the
second lowest 10-month period since
the formation of Gatun Lake in 1914.
Following an unusually prolonged
dry season, Gatun Lake dropped to

a low of 82.22 feet in July and has
been slow to recover, even after
rainy season started again. Rains
have been light and moderate in.the
vital Gatun Lake basin even though
they have been heavy in other parts
of the Isthmus.
With lockages averaging a high of
31.4 a day, water used for Canal
navigation totaled 135,743 acre-feet
during September.
Even though the rise in lake eleva-
tion during September was slight,
Marine Bureau ruled that effective
October 11, it was sufficient to
raise the draft limitation on vessels
arriving at the Canal for transit from
36 feet 6 inches to 37 feet until
further notice.

Tots Left in Cars

May Not Just 'Sit'

A near-miss the other day in a
retail store parking lot has prompted
a word of warning to shopping
The incident involved a toddler
who was left in the car by his mother
and who somehow opened a car door
and got out. Exploring this interest-
ing new world, he darted out
between two parked cars and into a
traffic lane, where he was almost hit
by a car leaving the parking lot.
Fortunately the car was going
forward, rather than backing out of
a parking space, in which case the
driver might not have seen the child
at all.
Which leads to this reminder to
mothers not to leave toddlers un-
attended in parked cars.

Another blood group family with
which most people are acquainted is
the Rh group. The Rh factor, like
the other blood group factors, is an
antigen (a chemical substance in the
blood) and is one of many related
ahtigens which have been identified
in the Rh family. The Rh factor was
discovered in 1940 by Drs. Land-
steiner, and Wiener and was named
Rh because of its similarity to a sub-
stance found in the red blood cells
of Rhesus monkeys. An individual is
Rh positive if the red cells contain
this antigen and negative if they
do not.
If a mother is Rh negative and
her baby is Rh positive, a -situation
of maternal-infant incompatibility
exists which could result in the
baby having Rh problems (hemo-
lytic disorder of the newborn). There
is a potentially hazardous Rh rela-
tionship between mother and baby
in approximately 13 percent of all
marriages in the United States. Most
of these do not result in illness.
When illness occurs it does not hold
the dread prognosis it did a few
years ago, thanks to new methods of
exchange blood transfusions.

Buying Bonds?

Social Security

Number Needed

Special card notices have been or
are being mailed to all U.S.-citizen
employees who are named as owners
on U.S. Savings Bonds purchased by
payroll deduction. The notice advises
that U.S. Treasury regulations re-
quire that for the first-named indi-
vidual on the bond-the owner-the
furnishing of their U.S. social secu-
rity account number is mandatory;
it is optional with respect to the
name of the co-owner or beneficiary.
To comply with the mandatory
requirement, the employee may, of
course, amend the bond authoriza-
tion to reverse the positions of
the names in the bond inscription
causing the present co-owner to
become the first-named owner, and
Announcement of this requirement
was first made to all bond subscribers
in March, advising them, where
necessary, to obtain U.S. social secu-
rity account numbers for U.S.-
citizen dependent adults or minors.
Failure of the subscriber to return
the portion of the notice, in a reason-
able time, which provides for fur-
nishing the U.S. social security
account numbers, to the Treasurer,
Panama Canal Company, will make
it necessary to cancel the individual
payroll deduction authorization and
bond issues under it.

Rosy Economic Look

Reported for Canada
Canada's economic outlook for
the near future: good.
A 9 percent increase in the dollar
value of Canada's gross national
product shows up in the present
Federal budget. The outlook for the
near future is so encouraging that
personal income taxes might be
reduced 10 percent.
Canada, long a U.S. trade area,
appeals to Stateside exporters of
capital goods primarily in the accel-
erated depreciation provision for
new machines and equipment. En-
acted in 1963, it has been extended
through 1966.

Jules Pascin's Caribbean Sketch-
book is a collection of more than 100
drawings from one of two sketch-
books produced by the artist
between 1915 and 1920. It includes
landscapes, drawings of people, and
animal sketches of the Caribbean
area and reveals the delightful flavor
of Pascin's work. There is an excel-
lent introduction by John Palmer
Leeper which tells of Pascin's life,
of the legend which he built around
it, and of his death in 1930. This
book will charm all its readers, espe-
cially those who know the Caribbean
well. They will see familiar scenes
in "Ferry Landing," "Schooner,"
"Road Repairs," and "Fruit Stand."

William Small is not as fortunate as many . he is handicapped. But he felt that there are those less fortunate
than himself, so he saved money from his allowance to give to the Combined Federal Campaign. The $5 he is
giving PanCanal Personnel Director E. A. Doolan is designated for use by Aid to the Handicapped, a CFC agency
that helped Bill for 6 years. Post-operative complications left Bill with paralysis. The agency stepped in to
provide physical therapy, braces and medication. Though he no longer receives the aid, thanks to improvement,
Bill hasn't forgotten it. Looking on proudly is his father, Stanley Small of Gamboa, a seaman with the Dredging
Division. Doolan accepted the donation n behalf of Lieutenant Governor H. R. Parfitt, chairman of the Combined
Federal Campaign Coordinating Committee.

Deer crossing signs are plentiful,

Street and crosses the road to eat
the feed put out by residents who
live on the other side.

Teacher's Art

Work on Exhibit
Mosaics and paintings in oil and
the new "plastic" paints highlight the
art work by Miss Jane Ellis, Balboa

on exhibit at the JWB Armed Forces
Service Center, La Boca, Balboa.
The paintings include still life, por-

as the contr versial abstract and
"op" art.

Pratt Institute and Syracuse Univer-
sity. She holds bachelor of fine arts
and master's degrees from the latter

Eda J. LeShan's How to Survive
Parenthood is a book of encourage-
ment for parents to be themselves
and let their children do the same.
Mrs. LeShan covers the age span
from infancy to adolescence and
throws in a bit of advice on marriage,
the working mother, and father's
place in the family. Her light touch
and readable style fail to divert the
reader from the good commonsense
which she stows away in this book.
Some chapters worth taking a look
at are "The Gulity Parent and How
He Grew," "We All Wanted Babies,
But Did We Want Children?" and
"Who's Not a Working Mother?"
Vincent de Callatay's Atlas of the
Moon will fascinate would-be moon-
travelers as well as those who prefer
to be earthbound rocking-chair
spectators, since in this beautiful

technical information to satisfy the

lent photographs which will clear up
many questions for the uninitiated.
Callatay's book receives added lustre
with the inclusion of a preface by
Sir Bernard Lovell of England's
Jodrell Bank.

Madam Ambassador is coming to town in the musical treat "Call Me Madam," a Theatre Guild production slated
to open Friday, November 12, at the Ancon Playhouse. The title role of U.S. Ambassador Sally Adams is played

Whether or not one agrees with him,
almost everyone will concede that
Sartre writes with force and with
conviction. Some of the chapters in-

According to the ad for The Treas-
ury of Dogs, anyone who has ever
liked a dog has to have this book-or
at least he should read it and marvel
at the discerning portraits of almost
every recognized breed. In the
accompanying text, Arthur Frederick
Jones and John Rendel have given a
brief history of man's friend from
earliest times; and in the section on
breeds, Walter Chandoha has pro-
vided more than 150 pages of
photographs-many in full color.
These dog portraits are so good that
it's hard to believe that the dogs
were not consciously hamming it up
with the photographer. Dog lovers
can't afford to miss this book.

Una nueva marca para un period,
de 3 dias y otra para un period de
4 dias fueron impuestas por el Canal
de PanamA, durante esta semana,
mientras que los trAnsitos de los bar-
cos implantaban una nueva marca.
Del 16 al 18 de octubre, un pe-
riodo de 3 dias, transitaron el Canal
134 barcos, a una rata de 44.7 bar-
cos por dia. El total de barcos del
16 al 19, period de 4 dias, fue de
174, para un promedio diario de 43.5
barcos por dia.
Con los transitos a 35.8 barcos por
dia, desde principios de esta semana,
, octubre estaba amenazando con con-
vertirse en uno de los meses de mals
trAifico en la historic del Canal. Entre
las naves que transitaron tambidn se

y al manejo especial que hubo que
Hasta el 18 de octubre, habia ha-
bido durante el mnes, 168 trAnsitos
de paso libre y, si continue a la rata
present durante el resto del mes, el
total llegarA a unos 285. Ello seria
superior a los 177 transitos de paso
libre de octubre de 1964 y el n6mero
maximo que haya habido en la his-
toria del Canal, que fue de 225
barcos de paso libre, en mayo de
Ademis de este tremendo volu-
men de trAnsitos, hubo otra clase de

demoras debidas a la niebla en la
ruta del Canal, lo que hizo que los
barcos duraran hasta 14 horas 25
minutes atravesando la via. En el
tercero, de 4 dias consecutivos de
demoras por la niebla, el promedio
de horas que pasaron los barcos en
aguas del Canal fue de 40.7, la
marca mas alta registrada.
Debido a la operaci6n de una sola
cAimara en las Esclusas de Miraflores,
mas de 180 barcos pasaron en aguas
del Canal mais de 24 horas. Con la
complicaci6n de la niebla, en los
primeros 14 dias de octubre, fueron
mins de 200 los barcos que pasaron
mals de 24 horas en aguas canaleras.
Al ser retrasado el transit de un
barco debido a la niebla, todos los
deremas barcos son afectados en el ho-
rario de su transito y el Control de
Trafico Maritimo debe buscar la
manera mas eficiente de reorganizar
los transitos.

reparaciones integrales que comen-
zaron el 5 de septiembre.
Ya para el lunes todos los trinsitos
atrasados se habian cumplido a tra-
ves del Canal, rumbo al sur; los
transitos hacia el norte eran norma-
les el pasado martes.

Esta Llovienco Mucho Aca,

Pero en el Lago Gatun, No

Solo faltan 6 u 8 semanas para que
se inicie la estaci6n seca y todavia
el nivel del Lago Gatun sigue siendo
motivo de preocupaci6n para los in-
genieros del Canal de Panama.
A pesar de que ha habido algo
mans de lluvia durante septiembre y
principios de octubre, el nivel del
Lago Gatun oscil6 alrededcr de los
84.50 pies, aproximadamente 2 pies
bajo el nivel que alcanz6 el afio pasa-
do para este tiempo y cerca de 3 pies
bajo su nivel maximo.
El nivel del Lago Madden per-
manece en 232 pies, mas de 11 pies
bajo el nivel que alcanz6 en octubre
del ano pasado. El Lago Madden
deberia alcanzar su mAximo nivel a
fines de la estaci6n lluviosa, en
diciembre: 252 pies.

La lluvia aument6 algo durante
septiembre y octubre, pero la preci-
pitaci6n no ha sido lo suficiente sobre
el Area del lago, como para afectar
mayormente la cantidad de agua en
la hoya del Lago Gatfin.
De acuerdo con el informed de sep-
tiembre, enviado por el Jefe Hidr6-
grafo del Canal de Panama, la can-
tidad de agua proveniente de la hoya
del Lago Gatun, fue 12 por ciento
menos de lo normal y septiembre fue
el duod6cimo mes consecutive en
que la cantidad estuvo bajo lo
El total acumulado de agua en la
hoya del Lago Catun, de diciembre
de 1964 a septiembre de 1965, fue

Esclusas de Pedro Miguel. Tiene 4
ainos de trabajar con ia organizaci6n
del Canal de PanamA. Naci6 en la
ciudad de PanamA, hace ya alg6n
tiempo, a pesar de que se ve joven
todavia. Hizo su escuela primaria en
la Escuela Manuel Jos6 Hurtado y la
secundaria, en el Artes y Oficios y el
Institute Nacional, en la ciudad de
PanamA. Pero desde hace ya alg6n
tiempo, vive en La Polvareda, Dis-
trito de ArraijAn, en donde tiene su
casita propia y una finquita de 5
hectAreas, en la que cultiva "su cual-
quier cosita". Casado con la Sra.
Ana Maria Barria de Campos desde
hace 20 afios, tienen cinco nifios, el
mayor Isael A. de 13 afios, que estA
en el Colegio Richard Neumar, y la
menor Gisela, de afio y medio, que
es la reina de la casa. Nos dice que
su mayor afici6n es la "monteria"
(caceria), y que le gusta much mAs
de noche, pues hay much mas emo-
ci6n, a pesar de que es muy peli-
grosa debido a la "verrugosa", ser-
piente muy venenosa que abunda en
PanamA. Su caceria mAs pesada fue
con un gato solo,'que hasta le mat6
un magnifico perro de caceria. Cuan-
do ve que vamos a terminar la entre-
vista nos dice: "Quiero que publique
que estoy muy agradecido de la beca
que el Canal de PanamA me conce-
di6 para aprender ingl6s, en la Aso-
ciaci6n Panamefio Norteamericana,
y la estoy aprovechando".

deseo, ahora mismo, es comprar su casita propia en Pedregal, donde reside.
Se ocupa en hacer nudos en las sogas que usan los pasacables, cuando
amarran los barcos en las esclusas. Pero nos dice que 61 tiene que hacer
eso porque hace algunos afios sufri6 un accident, y por eso le han asignado
trabajos mAs suaves. Durante 7 afios trabaj6 a bordo de barcos de la ESSO
y nos cuenta de sus viajes a puertos de Estados Unidos, Mexico, Centro y
Sur America. Tambidn se conoce perfectamente las islas del Caribe. Trabaja

dad de $22.800.000, durante el pri-

Hay constancia que durante los siglos 18 y 19 se hicieron pocas trans-
fusiones de sangre con buenos resultados. Durante la Guerra Civil en los
Estados Unidos se trat6 de llevar a cabo dos transfusions de sangre.
Un soldado de infanteria, de Illinois, muri6 durante la prueba, pero un
soldado de artilleria del Estado de Massachusetts fue salvado.
Al principio del siglo 20, el Dr. Karl Landsteiner descubri6 que al mezclar
las c6lulas rojas en el suero de varias personas, cuatro grupos de sangre
se podian definir: 0, A, B, y AB. Estos grupos, incluyeron la primera
familiar de grupos de sangre y continian siendo el grupo principal. En los
Estados Unidos, aproximadamente 45 por ciento de la poblaci6n tiene
sangre tipo 0, 40 por ciento tipo A, 10 por ciento tipo B y 5 por ciento
tipo AB. En la actualidad, ademAs del grupo inicial de tipos de sangre,
existen otros 10 sistemas de tipaje que comprenden mis de 50 grupos
diferentes de sangre.

I de 12 personas
1 de 29 personas

Factor Rh
Negative (-)
1 de 15 personas
1 de 16 personas
1 de 67 personas
1 de 167 personas

Otro grupo de sangre conocido por la mayoria de las personas es el
grupo Rh. El factor Rh, igual a otros grupos de factors, es un antigeno
(una substancia quimica en la sangre) y es uno de los muchos antigenos
relacionados que han sido identificados en la familiar Rh. El factor Rh se
descubri6 en 1940 por los doctors Landsteiner y Wiener, y se le llam6
Rh por su similaridad a una substancia encontrada en las c61lulas rojas de
los monos Rhesus. El factor Rh es positive cuando las c6lulas rojas
contienen este antigeno y negative cuando no lo contienen.
Si el factor Rh de la madre es negative y su beb6 tiene el factor Rh
positive, existe una incompatibilidad entire la madre y el infante, que
puede resultar en problems de factor Rh en el nifio (des6rdenes hemo-
liticos en el reci6n nacido). En el 13 por ciento de los matrimonios en los
Estados Unidos existen problems de incompatibilidad del factor Rh entire
padres e hijos. La mayoria de estos casos no desarrollan enfermedad.
Y cuando hay problems estos no Ilevan en si el pron6stico tan temido que
solian llevar hace various afios, gracias a los nuevos m6todos de transfusions
de sangre.

Las Limas y su Empleo Correcto
Las limas son herramientas de much utilidad en los talleres de
mecanica y, en algunos de ellos son indispensables para poder realizar
el trabajo. Su eficiencia y duraci6n dependent del trato que se les d6
y de la forma como se empleen. Una lima puede perder su filo y
hacerse inservible en poco tiempo si se le deja impregnar de grasa
o aceite o si se le deja oxidar.
El acero empleado para su fabricaci6n es muy duro y resistente,
pero tambi6n es templado a alto grado, lo cual le da las caracteristicas
necesarias para alcanzar el fin que se persigue y a la vez la hace
inadecuada para darle otro uso diferente al original. Por esta raz6n
no se permit utilizar limas desgastadas o rotas para confeccionar
palancas, punzones o cualquier otro tipo de herramienta improvisada.
Al obrar en contra de este principio se expone a sufrir una lesi6n por
rotura de la lima, que al ser sometida a flexi6n o a golpes puede
romperse ficilmente y lanzar los pedazos disparados como proyectiles
de alta velocidad.
Siempre debc usarse en ]a lima un mango adecuadamente
La aplicaci6n de tiza sobre la superficie cortante de la lima ayuda
a evitar el entrapamiento y la phrdida de corte y deslizamiento
Las limas no deben ser nunca golpeadas.
Debe seleccionarse el tamafio y forma adecuados de lima para el
Nunca se debe usar una lima para hacer palanca.
Para seguridad, sastenga la lima adecuadamente con el pulgar
No se deben utilizar las limas viejas para hacer punzones, cinceles
u otras herramientas.
Las limas cortas son mas seguras si se guardian en un lugar
Las limas deben mantenerse limpias con una carda para limas
o con un raspador metalico.
Las limas deben ser mantenidas libres de aceite y de grasa.
