Ships Through Canal
I ^^iif^^^^^^^^^^Bri^^^^^^^^B. ^^H^^Bf^^^R &^---Pi ^ fl^^^Ff^^^^^^^^U

More ships are transiting the Pan-
ama Canal now than at any time in
its history and they are moving
through faster.
This was emphasized by Capt.
M. J. Prince, Panama Canal Marine
Director, in a memorandum com-
paring Canal performance statistics
for calendar years 1966 and 1965.
While oceangoing ships of 300
Panama Canal net tons or more in-
creased by 1.5 ships a day, time
spent in Canal Zone water decreased
by 1.8 hours.
At the same time, figures showed

Service center and retail store
closings are scheduled for January 31
and February 1 and 2.
On the Pacific side, the Balboa
Service Center merchandise section
will be closed until approximately
noon Wednesday, February 1. The
Balboa Housewares Store will be
closed all day Thursday, February 2.
On the Atlantic side, the Coco Solo
Supermarket will remain closed until
2:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 1.
The Coco Solo Gasoline Station
merchandise section will be closed
Tuesday, January 31, from 2:30
through 5:45 p.m. Sales of gasoline
and sundry items ordinarily sold in
the gasoline lanes will be continued,
however, until the normal closing
hour of 5:45 p.m.

that transits by vessels of 80-foot
beam and over increased by 12 per-
cent. Most significant was the 400
percent increase in ships of 104-foot
beam and over. In 1966, an average
of more than one of these giants
passed through the Canal each week.
In 1965, there was only a little more
than one a month.
While the Canal was busy with an
average of 35.1 ships a day, it was
found possible to increase the draft
allowance on certain big ships from
39.5 to 40 feet tropical fresh water.
This will remain in effect until about
mid-February so long as the level
of Gatun Lake is above 86.6 feet
and the Canal channel has a depth
of 45 feet.
The minimum draft allowance
expected this year is 38 feet tropical
fresh water provided there is a
normal dry season.
Success of the speed-up operation
can be attributed mainly to the re-
markable teamwork and the effi-
ciency of the Panama Canal em-
ployees whose business it is to put
ships through the Panama Canal,
Captain Prince said.
Credit for the continued improve-
ment in the drafts at which ocean-
going ships are being handled also
can be given to the Dredging Divi-
sion which recently completed
dredging the 300-foot section of
Gaillard Cut with the Canal's huge

Prayer Breakfast Speakers


January 27, 1967


By Emily J. Price

Jan de Hartog's new novel, The
Captain, is of events during World
War II and concerns a young Dutch-
man who captains a ship on the
Murmansk run. New and uncertain in
his heavy responsibility, the captain
has to struggle with his revulsion
against war and bloodshed. This is
an interesting study in psychology
set against an authentic background
of shipboard life in wartime.
Maurice Robbins, former presi-
dent of the Massachusetts Archaeo-
logical Society, has written The
Amateur Archaeologist's Handbook
as a guide for enthusiastic diggers.
The topics treated are: how to know
where to look, how to excavate a
site, what you will find, dating arti-
facts, mapping and photographing,
and how to restore your finds. Many
photographs, drawings, and chrono-
logical tables add to the utility of this
clearly written handbook.
"For hundreds of years the Hima-
layas have exercised their fascination
on the world." Thus Michel Peissel
begins his book Tiger for Breakfast
which tells about his visit to the
remote and little known country of
Nepal and its remarkable capital,
Kathmandu. Here the author met an
adventurous and colorful character
Boris Lissanevitch, Russian exile,
tiger hunter and the man respon-
sible for opening up the mountainous
kingdom to air travellers from the
outside world. The book abounds in
exotic adventures from hunting tigers
with elephants to the recent moun-
taineering attacks on Mount Everest.
It is a perfect book for armchair
Cissy is a biography of Eleanor
M. "Cissy" Patterson, member of the
Patterson newspaper clan, and owner
of the Washington Times-Herald
from 1930 to 1948. An intense and
volatile person, Mrs. Patterson was
a strange combination of wealthy
social leader with a taste for luxury
and hard-driving newspaperwoman.
Her feuds, aired in The Times-
Herald, were famous, ranging from
FDR to Drew Pearson, her ex-son-

in-law. This story of a cyclonic and
fascinating person includes a lively
account of the newspaper world in
a colorful era.
Mexico provides the setting for
Suzanne Blanc's new mystery The
Rose Window. A young American
tourist sits beside a beautiful girl on
a bus and then finds himself ear-
marked for murder. The tracking
down of a band of terrorists and the
solution of a century-old puzzle are
efficiently done by Inspector Menen-
des, a canny but enigmatic sleuth.
This is good fare for mystery addicts.
Terry Carr has edited a collection
of short stories titled Science Fiction
for People Who Hate Science Fic-
tion. Included are stories by authors
famous in the science fiction field,
Arthur C. Clarke, Heinlein, Brad-
bury, Shiras, Fredric Brown, and
others. There are familiar patterns
in some of the stories, the last couple
left in a devastated world, the time
machine, the space traveler returned
from Mars, but each is told in a new
and imaginative way. This well-
balanced collection should make
converts of science fiction haters.

of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service,
will be in the City of Panama from
January 30 to February 3 and in the
Canal Zone from February 6 to
March 14 to assist persons having
Federal income tax problems.
In Panama City, Hughes may be
contacted at the Consular Section of
the United States Embassy. Interested

Incentive Awards

Records are Set

Panama Canal employees set new
records in fiscal year 1966 in extra
contributions to the economy, effi-
ciency, and effectiveness of the Canal
organization through participation in
the Incentive Awards Program. About
166 suggestions were adopted, for
which some $7,000 was awarded
against tangible benefits to the Canal
organization estimated at $176,050.
The dollar benefit increase from
adopted suggestions was 221 percent.
Cost-cutting suggestions by em-
ployees covered by the U.S. Civil
Service Commission rose to an all-
time high during fiscal year 1966
and produced economies in U.S.
* Government operations valued at
more than $123 million, the Civil
Service Commission has announced.
During fiscal year 1966, the Pan-
ama Canal Incentive Awards Com-
mittee, consisting of the Comptroller
and bureau directors appointed by
the Governor for the administration
of the program, received 657 sugges-
tions and 304 honorary award recom-
mendation's from within the agency
for a total of 931 contributions. The
166 suggestions adopted represent
25 percent of the total received.
The highest individual suggestion
award was received by Martin S.
Sawyer of the Panama Canal's Navi-
gation Division. Hle was presented a
check for $500 for his suggestion for
utilization of former launch radio
equipment in Canal jitneys, resulting
in an annual savings of some $9,800.

The suggestions adopted in fiscal
year 1966 also included savings of
$100,000 arising from a group sug-
gestion of some 22 employees in the
Locks Division, who presented a
series of ideas for debugging and
improving performance of the new
locks towing locomotives.
Tangible benefits related to hon-
orary awards came to some $2.9
million dollars as compared to
$700,000 in fiscal year 1965. This
unusually high savings derives prin-
cipally from a new locks overhaul
lane outage plan submitted by Wil-
liam A. Van Siclen, Jr., former chief,
Locks Division, who now is retired.
The plan is expected to save some
$2,625,000 that would otherwise be
spent in preparing Catun and Pedro
Miguel Locks for the 24-hour lock
lane outage concept. A Distinguished
Service Award of $300 was presented
the Locks Division Chief for his dis-
tinguished work in developing the
new technique.
Panama Canal awards for superior
accomplishment went to 307 em-
ployees, with a cash total dollar value
of $2,715,000 in measurable benefits.
The average Panama Canal cash
award was $203.
U.S. (overnment-wide, 80,513 su-
perior accomplishment awards were
presented employees. The value
of eivasurable benefits totaled
$158,027,335 and the average cash
award was $146,

Feel Impact

Of Viet Nam

Impact of the Viet Nam conflict
on Canal Zone youths of draft age is
reflected in local Selective Service
Board figures, which show a sharp
increase in the number of Canal
Zone registrants who have gone on
active duty in the Armed Forces
during the past 12 months.
During 1966, a total of 153 Zone
registrants were inducted, enlisted, or
commissioned, according to 1-. I.
Perantie, local Director of Selective
This compared with figures of 73
for 1965 and 76 in 1964.
At the close of 1966, the total
number of Zone registrants classified
in Class I-C as members of the
Armed Forces currently on active
duty was 570, or 19 percent of the
total of 2,921 registrants who have
been registered locally since the 1951
draft law became effective.
This compares with a U.S. national
average of 7.5 percent covering
registrants of all States who are cur-
rently on active duty.
In other major classifications, the
Canal Zone listing shows 11.7 percent
of its registrants deferred in Class
II-S as college students, compared to
a national average of 4.7. This is
attributed to the fact that a larger
percentage of Canal Zone youths
attend college.
The Zone has only 5.3 percent in
Class IV-F (not qualified for service),
compared to a national average of
7.6 percent.
There are but 4.5 percent in Class
III-A (deferred as fathers, or hard-
ships cases), vs. a States national
average of 11.1 percent.



Visit C.Z.
Thomas A. Booth, Grand Master
of Masons for the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts, and George R. Dew-
hurst, Grand Marshal, accompanied
by their wives, arrived this week on
an official visit to the Canal Zone
Masonic Lodges which are under the
jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of
Booth is the third ranking Mason
in the world and gives precedence
in rank only to the Grand Master of
England and the Grand Master of
Ireland. These distinguished guests
were received at Tocumen Airport
by Norman B. Davison, District
Grand Master of the Canal Zone,
and other prominent Masons.
During their stay here the Fiftieth
Anniversary of the District Grand
Lodge of the Canal Zone will be
celebrated. Also present for this
event are Past District Grand Mas-
ters Clarence L. Johnston now of
Hendersonville, N.C., George P.
Fullman, now of Moscow, Idaho,
and Howard W. Osborn of Balboa
and their wives. Past District Grand
Master, James E. Jacob, now of
Columbus, Miss., was unable to
make the trip.
In addition to formal calls on
officials of the Panama Canal Com-
pany and allied organizations, the
officers of the Grand Lodge will
make official visits to the Masonic
Lodges of the Canal Zone and will
be received on Sunday by the Grand
Lodge of the Republic of Panama.
Official visits are being made this
week to Isthmian and Darien Lodges
which are observing their Fiftieth
Anniversaries, and to the other Canal
Zone Lodges which hold their char-

section under inventory.



Are Cautioned
Skateboarding, a popular fad that
can be great fun if done properly, has
become a nuisance in some Canal
Zone communities.
Sidewalk surfing on skate wheels,
has become a matter of concern to
parents, safety officials, drivers, and
police. Recently it has brought about
complaints from residents in the flats
area where children are darting down
sidewalks, driveways, and streets.
This can be dangerous to the
skateboarders and is a menace to
drivers. It is recommended that there
be skating only on designated areas
such as playgrounds and non-con-
gested sidewalks (where not prohib-
Skating should be done on a sur-
face that is free of large bumps and
cracks that can cause serious spills.
Beginners should be aware of speed
potential and the hazard of falling
and should not try to maneuver
beyond their skill. The skateboarder
should always have control.
Canal Zone Police Chief E. S.
Shipley requests that children, and
any grownups who go in for the sport,
abide by the safety rules. He cau-

being executed on a new form,
No. 6325, which should be filled out
by the occupant of quarters.
These forms are sent out with

Safety Course

Being Offered

To Cyclists
Due to the increase in the sporting
and travel appeal of motorcycle and
motor scooters in the past few years
and the number of serious accidents
involving two-wheeled vehicles, the
Isthmiarr Motorcycle Association will
conduct a safety instruction course
for cyclists in the Canal Zone.
The two-wheel vehicle operator
orientation course consists of two
3-hour sessions to be given at the
Training Center and adjacent parking
area on February 4 and 11, begin-
ning at 8:30 a.m.
The safety course includes such
subjects as: public opinion and the
cyclist; use of safety equipment and
wearing apparel; cycle nomenclature
and preventative maintenance; basic
riding techniques; group riding tech-
niques; precision riding techniques;
and cross-country touring. Also, as
part of the instruction course, a Canal
Zone policeman will be on hand to
discuss Canal Zone regulations gov-
erning two-wheel vehicles.
The Isthmian Motorcycle Associa-
tion calls on parents of motorcycle
and motor scooter enthusiasts to urge
their sons to take advantage of this
safety instruction course.
For more information on the
course, persons interested may call
W. R. Bailey 4-193 (Pedro Miguel)
or T. Sgt. Richard Tinsley, Albrook

suction dredge Mindi. It was the first
time that the Mindi had been used
in the Cut to remove deposited mate-
rial down to original project depth.
During the 3 months that the
Mindi was operating in the channel,
the Marine Traffic Control section of
the Navigation Division did an amaz-
ing job of scheduling the heavy Canal
traffic so that there was minimum
delay to ship movements and no
interference with the operation of
the dredge.
Since the Cut was completely
blocked to ships when the Mindi
worked from 12 midnight until 8
a.m. 7 days a week, maintenance of
these smooth transit schedules took
some juggling on the part of the
marine traffic controllers, whose work
is complicated even at normal times.
Pilots and the employees of the
Panama Canal locks also came in for
their share of the praise for the im-
proved speed in putting ships through
the locks. Teamwork and increased
knowledge of how to handle the big
customers through the narrow locks
and the tight spots in the Canal were
listed as contributing factors.
Plans have been made this year to
keep the level of Gatun Lake from
dropping too rapidly through the dry
season by drastic curtailment of the
operation of the Gatun Hydroelec-
tric station. At present the lake is
being lowered approximately .01 to
.02 foot a day instead of the previous
.03 or .04 of a foot.
Predictions by the Hydrographic
Branch are that the lake will drop
from the 87 feet level, at which it
stood January 14, to only 85 feet by
April 30, instead of the 82 feet pre-
dicted for this day in previous years.
All this is good news to the ship-
ping companies whose ships are Pan-
ama Canal customers, since deeper
drafts and faster transits mean in-
creased profits.

Los Patinadores

Deben Observar

Los Reglamentos
El deported de los patines puede
ser sumamente agradable si se prac-
tica apropiadamnente, pero se ha con-
vertido en un problema en ciertas
comunidades de la Zova del Canal.
Patinar en las aceras es algo que
se ha convertido en motivo de pre-
ocupaci6n para los padres, los fun-
cionarios de seguridad, los conduc-
tores y la policia.
Recientemente, ha habido quejas
de parte de los residents de ciertas
secciones de Balboa, en el sentido
de que los nifios se lanzan en patines,
a toda velocidad, por aceras, entra-
das para coaches y calls. Ello puede
ser peligroso para los patinadores y
constitute una amenaza para los con-
ductores. Por lo tanto, se recomienda
que este deported sea practicado -'ni-
camente en las areas designadas,
tales como campos de juego y ]as
aceras no congestionadas, donde ello
no est6 prohibido.
Se debe patinar sobre superficies
que no tengan asperezas ni rajaduras
que puedan causar series caidas. Los
principiantes deberAn comprender el
peligro que entrafian las caidas a
gran velocidad y evitar maniobras
superiores a su habilidad. Los pati-
nes deberAn siempre tener algi'n
El Jefe de la Policia de la Zona
del Canal E. S. Shipley, solicita que
los nifios y adults que gusten de
este deported, cumplan con las reglas
de seguridad. Tambifn solicita a los
conductores que tengan cuidado con
las personas que patinan.

Alumnos de la Escuela Primaria de Rainbow City presentaron un baile
antillano durante el Festival de Musica del 14 del corriente en el Estadio
de Paraiso. El Profesor GermAn Castillo dirigi6 a este grupo en el festival.

Reciben muy Alta Condecoracion

Los Seniores Runnestrand y Doolan

La Medalla por Servicio Civil
Sobresaliente, una de las condecora-
ciones mAs altas que otorga el De-
partamento del Ej6rcito de los Esta-
dos Unidos a los civiles, ha sido con-
cedida por el Secretario Interino del
Ej6rcito David E. McGiffert a Paul
M. Runnestrand, Secretario Ejecuti-
vo del Gobierno de la Zona del
Canal, y a Edward A. Doolan, Di-
rector de Personal del Canal de
Las dos medallas y las menciones
que las acompanian, fueron algunos
de los reconocimientos p6blicos a
empleados de la organizaci6n del
Canal que efectu6 el Gobernador
Robert J. Fleming, Jr., la semana
pasada, antes de partir para los
Estados Unidos.
Ambos funcionarios del Canal fue-
ron citados por sus extraordinarios
servicios a la organizaci6n y su apoyo
consagrado y conciente a los pro-
gramas del Gobierno de Estados Uni-
dos que, dijo el Secretario del Ej6r-
cito, han contribuido significativa-
mente a las relaciones de Estados
Unidos con PanamA, conforme a las
mis altas normas propias de los
servidores p6blicos.
Runnestrand ha estado con la or-
ganizaci6n del Canal desde 1941
cuando ingres6 como abogado adjun-
to en la Oficina de Asesoramiento
Juridico. Fue ascendido en 1948 a
Ayudante del Asesor Juridico. En
1953 fue trasladado a la Oficina del

Cierres por Inventario

En Balboa y Coco Solo

los 86.6 pies y el cauce del Canal
tenga una profundidad de 45 pies.
El xito en aumentar la rapidez
de los trAnsitos se debe principal-
mente, dijo el CapitAn Prince, al no-
table espiritu de equipo y a la efi-
ciencia de los empleados cuya res-
ponsabilidad es manejar las naves que
transitan el Canal.
Credito por el continue aumento
en los calados de las naves que tran-
sitan debe darse tambi6n a la Divi-
si6n de Dragas, que recientemente
finalize el dragado en la secci6n de
300 pies de ancho del Corte Gail-
lard, donde se us6 la gigantesca
draga de succi6n Mindi. Fue esta la
primera vez que se us6 la Mindi
para remover los sedimentos y dejar
el Corte con su profundidad original.
Durante los 3 meses que la Mindi
oper6 en el cauce del Canal, la sec-
ci6n de Control de TrAfico Maritimo,
de la Divisi6n de Navegaci6n, rea-
liz6 un trabajo asombroso en la pro-
gramaci6n del fuerte trAfico por el
Canal, de manera que hubiera un
minimo de demora en el movimiento
de los barcos y no hubiera interfe-
rencia con la operaci6n de ]a draga.
Al quedar el Corte completamente
cerrado para los barcos durante la
operaci6n de la draga, desde la me-
dianoche a las 8 a.m., 7 dias a la se-

mana, el mantener fluidos los progra-
mas de transitos, hizo mias dificil el
trabajo de los controladores de trAfico
maritime, tarea de por si complicada.
Los prctico y los empleados de
las esclusas del Canal de PanamA,
tambi4n tienen su parte de merito en
la mayor rapidez con que pasan
ahora los barcos por las esclusas.
Como otra de las causes, se dijo que
ha influido much el trabajo de equi-
po y el mayor conocimiento de c6mo
nianejar las grandes naves a trav6s
de las esclusas y en los lugares peli-
grosos del Canal.
Este afio, se estAn haciendo planes
para evitar la caida demasiado rApida
del nivel del Lago Gatuin, por medio
de una drAstica reducci6n en el uso
de la Hidroel6ctrica de Gatin. Al
present, el lago baia alrededor de
.01 6 .02 de pie al dia, en lugar de
.03 6 .04 de pie que era lo anterior.
Las predicciones del Ramo de Hi-
drografia son de que el lago bajarA
de los 87 pies en que se encontraba
el 14 de enero, a s6lo 85 pies, para
el 30 de abril, en lugar de los 82
pies en que se encontraba ese dia
durante afios anteriores.
Todas estas son buenas noticias
para las compaiiias de navegaci6n
cuyos barcos usan el Canal de Pana-
ma, ya que calados mas profundos
y trAnsitos mas rApidos significant
mayores ganancias.
