Capt. Peter Brindley (right) and William C. York look over part of the plans
for the multimillion dollar project for widening of the 3-mile Bas Obispo-Las
Cascadas Reaches of Gaillard Cut. Captain Brindley is project engineer for
the job and York and Thomas G. Toda are assistant project engineers.

Cut Widening Work Started;

Project Engineer,
Capt. Peter Brindley, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers, of the Panama
Canal, will be Project Engineer for
the widening of Gaillard Cut. Captain
Brindley joined the Canal organiza-
tion in June of 1966 and is assigned
to the Engineering and Construction
A June 1960 graduate of the U.S.
Military Academy at West Point, he
received his Masters Degree in Civil
Engineering from Princeton Univer-
sity in 1964. He has previously served
in Hawaii, Thailand, and later in
Korea with the 11th Engineer Com-
bat Battalion, formerly based on the
William C. York, one of two assist-
ant project engineers, was project
engineer for the recent Miraflores
power plant expansion project and
prior to that had been project engi-
neer for installation of the gas tur-
bine generators at Miraflores. He has
7 years of Panama Canal service.
Thomas G. Toda, the other assist-
ant project engineer, has 8 years'

Aids Named
service with PanCanal. He has been
with the Engineering Division, Civil
Engineering Branch for the last 13A
years. Toda worked on the Balboa
bridge project and on designing
sewers for the Fort Clayton School
and the bypass for the Miraflores
water treatment plant.
The cut widening project was
started Tuesday and will take ap-
proximately 42' years to complete.
Widening of the 3-mile Bas Obispo-
Las Cascadas Reaches from 300 to
500 feet is the last and one of the
largest contracts in the cut widening
program, which was begun in 1954.
Oman Construction Co. of Nash-
ville, Tenn., won the contract on a
bid of $7,680,000 for excavation and
disposal of Zone I material above an
elevation of 95 feet plus drilling and
blasting of material above an eleva-
tion of 95 feet plus drilling and blast-
ing of Zone II (below 95 feet) mate-
rial in preparation for removal by
Panama Canal dredges.

"Ax Jones Keeper of the Keyhole for Keys to Panama Canal Locks" says
the legend on a beautifully polished wood plaque that stands behind the
desk of Axton T. Jones, Director of the Panama Canal's Transportation and
Terminals Bureau, in the Terminal Building, Cristobal. Many people have
received the Master Key to the Panama Canal Locks, he explains. But he
is the "Keeper of the Keyhole." For demonstration purposes he used a car
key, which obviously will not open the Panama Canal Locks.

Dry Season,

Rain Records

In Dead Heat
The dry season may be here. It is-
according to all the time-honored
indications such as the trade winds
and the blooming of the poro-poro
trees. But the rainy season continued
full blast right up to December 26.
Nine Canal Zone weather stations
reported rainfall well above average
for the month. A preliminary report
from the Meteorological and Hydro-
graphic Branch shows Chico on the
Chagres River with a total of 26.87
inches, an all-time record for the
month of December and 249 percent
above the average. The former record
of 19.54 was in December 1937.
The station at Ciento on the Gatun
River reported 34.04 inches of rain
or 163 percent above average for the
month of December. The all-tinme
December record was 34.22 inches,
set in 1959.
Even Balboa Heights, with only
5.05 inches of rain, was 2 percent
above the December average and
Madden Dam, with 14.36, was 155
percent above average.
As a result of the heavy rainfall in
the Gatun Lake Basin, several Gatun
Spillway gates were opened for
various periods from December 23 to
December 26, which-according to
the preliminary report-was the last
day rain of any appreciable amount
was recorded in December.
The month ended with both Gatun
and Madden Lakes filled to the brim.
In fact, the whole rainy season,
beginning last year in April, has been
favorable to Canal water supply. By
July 29, Gatun Lake had reached a
level high enough to permit a maxi-
mum tropical fresh water draft
allowance of 39 feet.

Check of Quarters

Exteriors Part of

Cleanup Drive
In connection with a general clean-
up campaign throughout the Canal
organization, the Housing Branch is
currently conducting an inspection of
quarters exteriors for general appear-
ance. Among items to be reported:
(a) Unauthorized installations or
additions to quarters.
(b) Unauthorized or non-standard
fence and lattice enclosures.
(c) Abandoned or inoperative auto-
mobiles, including those not cur-
rently licensed.
(d) Cluttered and poorly kept
garages in basement areas which may
present an unsightly appearance.
(e) Air conditioners without ade-
quate drains resulting in damage to
quarters or mildew on exterior walls
resulting from the "splash back."
(f) Shrubbery growing against
Occupants are requested to volun-
teer their cooperation in this cleanup,
which will benefit all concerned. The
Housing Manager, Cristobal, tele-
phone 3-2148, or Housing Manager
Balboa, telephone 2-2121, will be
pleased to receive reports of volun-
tary cleanup activity by occupants
and will contact as many as possible
of those who have a condition which
requires correction.
Occupants with air conditioners
which have caused unsightly mildew
and damp areas on building walls
will be required to correct the drain-
age to prevent backsplash and to
scrub down the wall area which has
been affected.

Ships Transiting

At 40-Foot Draft

The super bulk ore carrier San
Juan Merchant, with a cargo of
45,508 long tons of iron ore bound
from Peru to Italy, passed north
through the Canal Wednesday with
her draft at a record 40 feet. She is
738 feet long with a beam of 100.4
She was the first ship to be per-
mitted to use the tropical fresh water
draft of 40 feet since the publication
of a memorandum from the Chief of
the Navigation Division December 23
allowing deep draft transits on an
individual basis to vessels which have
successfully transited at 39 feet
6 inches.
The 800-foot long, 101.7-foot beam
bulk carrier Essi Gina is scheduled to
come south through the Canal Satur-
day as the second ship to use the
waterway with a 40-foot tropical
fresh water draft. She is carrying a
cargo of coal from Norfolk to Japan.
According to the memorandum
issued by Capt. D. A. Dertien, Navi-
gation Division Chief, trial transits
at a maximum tropical fresh water
draft of 40 feet will be authorized
only during the short period that the
Gatun Lake level remains above
87 feet.
Due to the beginning of the dry
season and lower run-off, the level

Governor Lauds

Role Played by

78 Retirees
Retirement certificates were pres-
ented by Governor Fleming to more
than 50 of the 78 Canal employees
who retired during November and
December, during a retirement cere-
mony in the Tivoli Guest House
Roosevelt Room. The retirees' service
totaled 2,259 years.
Listing the improvements being
made in the Canal service during the
past few years, Governor Fleming
congratulated the retiring employees
for the part they had played in the
efficient operation of the waterway.
"Whatever problems I have had,
none of them ever concerned the
manner in which the employees run
the Panama Canal. This is the most
efficient example of Government
operation in existence," he said.
With each certificate, Governor
Fleming added a brief personal
message. Special congratulations
went to the two senior employees
who had completed more than 50
years with the Canal. They were
Adrington R. Morrison, Marine Traf-
fic Clerk in the Cristobal Port Cap-
tain's Office, with 51 years, 3 months,
and 17 days, and Dawson G. Jolley,
Accounts Maintenance Clerk in the
Maintenance Division with 50 years,
3 months, and 24 days service.

will not remain this high for long.
Because of the high level of the
Gatun Lake in recent months, ships
transiting the Canal have been
allowed a tropical fresh water draft
allowance of 39 feet 6 inches since
November 10. This was a half foot
more than the maximum allowance
of 39 feet in effect since July 29,
when heavy rains brought the level
of Gatun Lake up to over 86 feet.
Experimental transits to deter-
mine the feasibility of transiting large
beam vessels at deep drafts while
Gatun Lake level is over 87 feet
were initiated in January 1966 when
authorizations were granted to owners
and operators of large bulk carriers
and tankers to transit at 39 feet
6 inches those vessels which had
previously transited the Canal at
39 feet.

received endless treatment, both at
Gorgas Hospital and at Warm

a checkup, carried out twice a year.
Rogelio isn't too concerned about

Only 800 Miles

Of Pan American

Route Unpaved

Less than 800 miles of the 29,000-
mile Pan American Highway system
is "impassable" and the entire route
is paved in four countries, the Secre-
tariat of the Pan American Highway
Congress of the Pan-American Con-
gress (PAU) has announced in Wash-
The all-paved roads are about
6,700 miles through Mexico, 425
miles through El Salvador, 150 miles
through Honduras, and 884 miles
through Venezuela, the report said.
A summary of changes since 1963
shows that 20,800 miles are paved,
660 miles are rated all-weather, 875
miles are rated dry weather roads,
and 790 miles are impassable, accord-
ing to a table prepared by a PAU
technical unit on tourism.
The "impassable" sections are ap-
proximately 185 miles in Panama,
380 miles in Colombia, and 240 miles
in Bolivia.
(A number of motorists, including
many individual trailers and some
trailer caravans, have been making
the trip from the States to the Isth-
mus and return for several years over
the "impassable" stretches, however.)
The Brazil section has 2,740 miles
of paved highway, 1,040 miles of all-
weather road, and 875 miles of dry
weather road, the report said. Argen-
tina ranks third, behind Mexico and
Brazil, in paved mileage, with nearly
2,500 miles of paved road on the
Pan-American route, according to
the report.

El Estudio de los Accidentes

La investigaci6n de un accident se transform mnuy a menudo en un
formulario, que luego de scr llenado en forma rutinaria es firmado por el
supervisor, archivado en el departamento de seguridad y dejado alli hasta
que Ilega el moment de hacer el infonne mensual o annual, el cual general-
mente consiste en un conglomerado de nimeros, pero no se ha hecho ning6n
esfuerzo por encontrar la causa del accident.
Un trabajador recibe salpicaduras de iacido en un brazo y el inotivo dado
es "violaci6n de una regla de seguridad" (la regla esta en el manual de segu-
ridad que se encuentra sobre el escritorio del supervisor) y la acci6n preven-
tiva es "instruir al trabajador" (jpor que tan tarde?). No se hace ninguna
tentative para saber: 8por qu6 el trabajador no conocia el peligro potential
del material? ,ad6nde fall el entrenamiento? 8era este un trabajador nuevo
que recibi6 entrenamiento de uno antiguo que disimulaba los habitos malos?
dcuAndo se trat6 este tipo de accident en una reunion de seguridad? son
las reuniones de seguridad uinicamente una alteraci6n de la rutina diaria?
8son las reunions tan aburridas que se reduce a palabras y numerous sin
mayor significado, perldindose el mensaje de aquillas? es el supervisor
nuevo y necesita ayuda para venderr" los principios de seguridad? aque es lo
que el departamento de seguridad le ha dado a este supervisor para ayudarlo
a presentar la seguridad a los trabajadores?
La investigaci6n de un accident debe ser algo mas que una description
casual de los hechos. Una buena investigaci6n pucde frecuentemente descu-
brir practices inadecuadas comn) asi tambien procediinientos y equipos defi-
cientes y en muchos casos que tanto los supervisors colo los capataces
necesitan entrenamiento en "colo" hacer la investigaci6n de un accident.
Ellos deben ver la necesidad de una evaluaci6n critical, ain en los accidents
Cuando llega el moment de hacer un resume o anAilisis dc los accidents
el resultado puede ser un con unto de n'nimeros sin mayor significado.
El objetivo de un analisis o resume de accidents debera ser el de sefialar
las areas que necesitan mais atencin o studios adicionales.
El anilisis deber:a ayudar a elaborar una tabla de causes, como asi tamnbibn
una tabla de departamentos y de los equipos y procediinientos utilizados.
Si se ha hecho una evaluacl6n minuciosa el anilisis de los accidents ayudanli
a descubrir ]as causes bAsicas de los nmismos, como asi tamibidn a deteriminar
los departamentos que necesitan nmas atenci6n.
Si la evaluaci6n de los accidents no es minuciosa el resultado a lienudo
serAi nicamente la acumulacion de papeles en los archives.

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
Otras de sus aficiones, al igual que
otros muchos j6venes que estin por
entrar al tercer afio de secundaria
(estudia en el Colegio La Salle), son
la cria de peces tropicales, acerca de
los cuales conoce bastante, y la numis-
mitica. Es el miembro mas joven de
la Sociedad NumismAtica del Istmo
y tiene ya casi un juego complete de
monedas panamefias. Las monedas de
PanamA y de los Estados Unidos son
su especialidad. Tambi6n goza con la
nataci6n, especialmente en la Isla de
Taboga en uni6n de su familiar. Sus
dos hermanas, Gloria, de 16 afios, e
Irma, de 12 afios, comparten su inte-
r6s en la cria de peces tropicales.
Afectado por el polio cuando tenia

bido continue tratamiento, tanto en
el Hospital Gorgas como en la Geor-
gia Warm Springs Foundation, donde
ha sido operado una vez, y pronto
ira nuevamente alli para el reconoci-
