Vol. V, No. 1 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, June 24, 1966



Post office employees at the Balboa Heights Post Office were neck deep in mail bags early this week when a
bumper shipment of mail arrived in the Canal Zone from the United States over the weekend. Five ships, three
from New York, one from Miami and the SS "Cristobal" from New Orleans brought a total of 3,307 sacks of mail
for Canal Zone residents. Although this was no record, it was an unusually large shipment for this time of the
year. Balboa Heights received 377 sacks out of the shipment. Leaning over the stack of mail is James Harrell,
Supervisor at Balboa Heights. Talmadge Greer, right, and Carl Farquharson, below, are about to start work.

Naval Architect

Views Canal, Cut

A man who spends much of his
time studying the methods and pro-
blems of handling ships in restricted
waters made a survey of the Panama
Canal last week in connection with
the problem of getting the increasing
number of superships through the
restricted waters of Gaillard Cut.
He was Charles G. Moody, a naval
architect and hydrodynamics' spe-
cialist who is on the staff of the U.S.
Navy's David Taylor Model Basin
located near Washington, D.C.
Although this was his first actual
visit to the Panama Canal, Moody is
no stranger to the operation problems
of the waterway. In 1964 he pub-
lished a report for the Panama Canal
organization titled "The Handling of
Ships through a Widened and Asym-
metrically deepened section of Gail-
lard Cut."
In it he discussed not only the
handling of ships in the Paraiso and
Cucaracha reaches of Gaillard Cut
but mentioned the recommendation
he made in 1958 that a tugboat used
astern of a supership moving through
these narrow waters is much more
useful than one ahead of the ship.
This suggestion was put into general
practice by the Panama Canal and
has been in use since 1959. It has
been standard procedure in the Cut
since April 1965.
During his visit to the Canal Zone
this past week, Moody took part in
an open conference in the Marine
Director's Office at Balboa Heights.

By Eleanor Burnham

Famous Tales of the Fantastic,
edited by Herbert Van Thal, is a col-
lection of stories by famous British
and American authors. From such
an old stand-by as Rappaccini's
Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne,
Van Thal progresses to Romain Gary's
Comrade Pigeon and to Ray Brad-
bury's science fiction, Invisible Boy.
Weird pen and ink sketches add to
the eerie quality of the talcs.
Rescue Mission by John Ball. Hur-
ricane warnings over a tiny Carib-
bean Island forced two planes to land
there. One was easily flown to safety.
The second, a Constellation, was
tied down in a sheltered place to
ride out the storm. The plane would
have stayed there had it not been
that a last chance effort had to be
made in order to perform a rescue
mission. This makes an exciting tale,
written by an authentic pilot, hero
of many rescue missions himself.
Gerald Carson explains his new
book The Polite Americans as "a
wide-angle view of our more or less
good manners over 300 years" and
traces American manners and cus-
toms from Colonial society to the
present-or, from severity to freedom.
Along the way he talks about dress,
literature, "The Cycle of the Beard,"
dueling, the American girl and the
telephone. There are many illustra-
tive anecdotes which help to make
this book lively reading.
The New People by Edith Iglauer
tells of the first steps of the Hudson
Bay Eskimos toward the advanced
civilization of our modern world.
Miss Iglauer, a professional writer,
has made four trips into the Canadian
Arctic to assist the "new people" in
learning to build a modern life for
themselves, and to write about it. The
acceptance of this American woman
into the developing Eskimo society
is indicated in the name which they
gave her on her last visit. They
called her "Oneekatualeeotae" or
"The Woman Who Tells the Story."
American Painting in the 20th
Century is Henry Geldzahler's reac-
tion to the traditions and innovations

Nearly all of them are in the Metro-

Cuna Carvings

On Display in

A collection of Cuna wood carvings
and other artifacts is on display in
the Library-Museum in the Civil
Affairs Building.
The collection is on loan from
Capt. Kit S. Kapp who spent nearly
15 years in charter-boat operation in
local or nearby waters. The last 5
years is his yacht, Fairwinds, have
been devoted largely to the study
of Cuna culture under the auspices
of the Explorers' Club. The display
contains human effigies of all sizes
which represent spirits and spirit-
healers, animal and bird carvings-all
of which form an extensive collection
of waod carvings known as uchus.
Captain Kapp is a native of Cin-
cinnati. He was in the llth Airborne
from 1944 to 1946 and spent 1 year
in the army of occupation in Japan.
Although Captain Kapp has worked
with Cuna artifacts for some time
this is the first time that he has ever
shown his collection.
The collection went on display last
week and will be up for about
2 months.

Common Sense,


For Safe Boating
"When you go boating, take along
a good supply of courtesy and com-
mon sense," says the Committee
for National Safe Boating Week,
July 3-9.
The committee reminds skippers
that being considerate of other boat-
men will result in more fun for
Steer clear of sailboats, rowboats
and larger craft-even though you
may have the "right of way."
Don't buzz docks, swimmers or
other boats.
Watch your wake. It can cause
serious damage to other boats and
their passengers.
Be alert-especially when cruising
in strange waters, near shore and in
crowded areas.
Learn and follow the "nautical
rules of the road."

One of the best-known words of
the sea is "pilot." This word dates
back to the early Greeks. The Dutch
also used the word, but they derived
it from the word "peilen," meaning to
sound, and lout-a sounding lead.
The British called a pilot the "lodys-
man," meaning a leadsman.

officers and 213 crew. While the
vessel is being repaired, the ship's
crew will have an opportunity to
observe, for training purposes, the
progress of the work.
In addition to general overhaul and
repairs, the Antioquia will undergo

Locks Div. Men Rewarded

For Locomotive Ideas

Twenty-two engineers and crafts-
men employed by the Panama Canal
Locks Division have been given offi-
cial recognition and appreciation for
their contribution to a group effort
to improve the operation and main-
tenance of the Panama Canal's new
towing locomotives. They also were
presented checks for $50 each with
a Panama Canal Suggestion Award
The award was made to the em-
ployees at Miraflores Locks by Gov.



Is the meter which measures the
electricity consumed in your res-
idence enclosed in a room or is access
to it blocked in some other way?
If it is, it is one of approximately
150 such meters installed in Canal
Zone residences. With this number,
it is small wonder that when the
monthly meter readings are being
taken, the meter reader is unable to
make readings in many residences
because some of you are not at home.
At present, when this occurs the
meter man returns to your home re-
peatedly until he finds someone to
let him in to make the readings.
Sometimes this requires several trips.
Occasionally, even an early evening
trip by the district wireman is neces-
sary before someone is found at home
who can give access to the meter.
This procedure is time-consuming
and costly.
Effective with the July meter read-
ing, follow-up visits will be made less
frequently. Instead, if no one is at
home your current consumption will
be estimated for the month. It will
be estimated in the following month
also if the meter reader cannot get
access to the meter during the regular
reading period.
However, no later than the third
month, arrangements will be made
for access to the meter, the meter
will be read, and the bill adjusted to
correct any errors which have been
made in previous estimates. This
means that the meter will be read at
least four times a year.
If you have added equipment, or
if other changes have occurred which
affect the amount of electricity being
consumed, your bill will be automa-
tically corrected at those times.

The citation accompanying the
award stated that "their individual
and collective original ideas, both
major and minor, have resulted in
obtaining sooner more reliable and
better performing locomotives for
service at all the locks. Their com-
bined suggestions produced con-
siderable savings in the towing loco-
motive replacement project."
The program for the replacement
of the old Panama Canal towing loco-
motives was started in 1959. The
contract for their construction was
awarded in May 1960 to the Mitsu-
bishi Shoji Kaisha, Ltd. of Tokyo.
The locomotives specially designed
to speed up the handling of the
rapidly increasing flow of shipping
through the Canal, were all delivered
by the end of 1965.
Those receiving the special awards
were John F. Paterson, Assistant
Chief of the Locks Division, Teddy

Golden Frogs

Displayed in

Golden State
Panama's famous golden frogs
were seen by some 55,000 people
who attended the Calaveras County
Fair Jumping Frog Jubilee. The frogs
now have been accepted at the
Steinhart Aquarium in San Fran-
cisco, the foremost aquarium in Cali-
fornia, for display.
The Panama Canal Information
Office, which took charge of coor-
dinating the project of shipping the
frogs to California, has received a
letter from Vrle T. Minto, Mayor of
Frogtown, stating: "The Board of
Directors, the management and the
staff of the International Frog Jump
sincerely wish to offer thanks for
your cooperation and help in securing
the golden frogs for display at the

Aunque esta ha sido su primera

mentario en el Corte desde abril
de 1965.

Durante su visit a la Zona del
Canal la semana pasada, Moody par-
ticip6 en una conferencia en la Ofi-
cina del Director de Marina, en

bras en el Corte Gaillard; disefio de
las Curvas en el Corte Gaillard en
el nuevo proyecto de ensanche del
corte; efectos del fondo asimntrico

Cleveland A. Small es Subjefe Ofici-
nista, encargado del Cuarto de Dep6-

con el Canal de PanamA, continua-
mente desde 1938. Naci6 en la po-
blaci6n de Paraiso, en la Zona del

Sus studios hasta el Octavo Grado,
los hizo en la escuela de ese lugar.
Luego sigui6 la secundaria en el Ins-
tituto Nacional y en la Escuela de
Artes y Oficios, en la Ciudad de Pa-
namA. Hace 26 afios contrajo matri-
monio con la Sra. Edna I. Small y
Dios bendijo su hogar con seis hijos.
De ellos el mayor es Carrol, de 25
afios, que pertenece a la Fuerza
Area de Estados Unidos y se en-
cuentra prestando servicio en una
base de la Fuerza A6rea, en Colo-
rado, Estados Unidos. David, el mAs
pequefio, s6lo'tiene 6 afios. Le pre-
guntamos cuAl de ellos es el prefe-
rido y contest: "Es una pregunta
sumamente fuerte. Los quiero a todos
por igual, pues todos son mis hijos".
El Sr. Small reside en Pedro Miguel,
Zona del Canal, donde goza del apre-
cio de los vecinos al extreme de que
ya lo han elegido para former parte
del Consejo Civico. Es comisionado
de los muchachos exploradores de
Pedro Miguel. Pertenece a la Iglesia
Episcopal de St. James, en Paraiso;
tambi6n pertenece al Club Elks. Le
gusta much la pesca. Su lugar pre-
dilecto es el Area de Las Islas de las
Perlas. Pero dice que el mejor lugar
para pescar en PanamA, es Punta
Mala. "Ahora, que como el lugar es
peligroso, a mar abierto y con una
ruta dificil, no son muchos los que
se aventuran a ir allA".

Fermin Ignacio Castafiedas es obrero especializado en pulir y refinar los
trabajos que llegan al Taller de Pintura de la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento
en Balboa. Tiene 17 afiios de trabajar con la organizaci6n del Canal de

primaria en la Escuela Manuel J. Hurtado en el Barrio de Santa Ana, en la
Ciudad de PanamA. Luego, pas6 a la Escuela de Artes y Oficios, donde
hizo su secundaria y se gradu6 de mecAnico de refrigeraci6n. Le pregunta-
mos por qu6 no sigui6 esa profesi6n y dice: "Son cosas de la vida. El oficio
de pintor lo aprendi mas bien como pasatiempo. Tuve oportunidades en 61.
Me perfeccion6 y ahora ve usted como me gano la vida. Eso si, yo no gasto
un centavo en reparar la refrigeradora de mi casa. AdemAs, de vez en
cuando me cae un "camaroncito" (trabajo extra) y eso ayuda much a un
hombre que trabaja". Su esposa se llama Rosa M. Pedroza de Castafiedas
y tienen cuatro hijos: Argentina, de 14 afios, alumna del Liceo de Sefioritas,
es la mayor. El mas pequefio, de meses, es Lorenzo Isaias. "Y la familiar

del lugar donde reside y ademAs es la iglesia de su parroquia. Antes de
venir a trabajar con el Canal de PanamA, sirvi6 unos 4 afios con el Ej6rcito
de los Estados Unidos. Le gusta much la lectura, especialmente leer la
revista Life. Toca muy bien la m6sica tipica panamefia en la guitarra.
Conoce casi todo el territorio de PanamA. Nada mAs le falta por conocer la
Provincia de Bocas del Toro. Lo que mis le gust6 de Panama fue la ciudad
de David. De los paises extranjeros, el que mis le gustaria conocer es
Argentina. De su trabajo con el Canal, dice que lo que mas le impresion6
fue cuando le toc6 refinar los muebles del Gobernador William Potter.

Implantan Nueva Reglamentacion

Para la Lectura de Medidores

dSe ha fijado usted si su medidor
de electricidad estA dentro o fuera
de su residencia?
Si estA dentro de su casa, es uno
de los 150 medidores de electri-
cidad, que existen en estas condicio-
nes en residencias de la Zona del
Canal. Con esta cantidad, es un mila-
gro que el dia que toca hacer la lec-
tura mensual, el encargado de este
trabajo pueda hacerlo, ya que algu-
nos de ustedes no estarAn en casa.
Al present, cuando esto ocurre, el
pobre lector de medidoreregresarA
una y otra vez hasta que encuentre
a alguien en casa. A veces tiene que
hacer various viajes. En ocasiones, el
pobre hombre tiene que madrugar,
para poder entrar a la casa y leer
el medidor. Este procedimiento es
costoso y consume much tiempo.
A partir de julio esto no se hara.
Si el lector, no encuentra a nadie en
casa, se harA un cAlculo del consume
de corriente electrica para el mes.
Y si tampoco se puede leer el medi-
dor al mes siguiente durante el pe-
riodo regular de lectura, tambi6n se
calcularA el consume.
Sin embargo, a mis tardar al tercer
mes, se harAn arreglos para llegar al
medidor, y la cuenta serA ajustada
para corregir cualquier error que se
haya podido cometer en cilculos an-
teriores. Esto quiere decir que el me-
didor sera leido por In menos cuatro
veces al afno.
Si usted ha afiadido aparatos, o han

ocurrido otros cambios que afecten la
cantidad de electricidad consumida,
su cuenta serA automAticamente co-
rregida en esas ocasiones.

dan los monos aulladores. Extrafias
criaturas, que prefieren permanecer
en las alturas de las copas de los drbo-
les, desde donde reciben a los extra-
iios con andanadas de frutas y de
palos. Cuando algo los asusta o inco-
moda, dan grandes alaridos que se
escuchan par millas de distancia. Hay
de diferentes classes, pertenecientes a
la familiar de los cebidos.
