New Cargo

Record Set:

55,214 Tons

Cargo records were broken again
last week by the combination bulk
Scenic which transited south through
the Panama Canal February 15 with
55,214 long tons of coal-nearly 200
tons more than the previous record
of 55,027 long tons carried through
on the Melodic November 28, 1966.
The Scenic, a Liberian flag giant,
789 feet long and with a beam of
104 feet, first broke the Canal cargo
record in October 1966 when she
brought 53,443 long tons of coal from
Newport News to Japan. Operated by
the Triton Shipping Co., she is re-
presented at the Canal by Panama
It was possible to load the record
cargo aboard the Scenic because of
the extra draft allowance of 40 feet
given to certain large ships since
January 1. The ship transited with a
draft slightly less than 40 feet and
probably was the last vessel to be
permitted to pass through the Canal
this dry season with a draft of more
than 39 feet 6 inches.
Because of the continued drop in
the level of Gatun Lake, the draft
allowance was reduced to 39 feet 6
inches February 15 and will be re-
duced again as the lake level falls.
The Marine Director has expressed
the hope, however, that it will be
possible to hold the draft allowance
to a minimum of 38 feet this year.
So far, if appears that this goal will
be possible. By February 20, the level
of the lake had dropped to 86.40 feet
which was nearly a foot higher than
at the same time last year.
Maintenance of a higher lake level
is being made possible by the curtail-
ment of water use for power gene-
ration at the Gatun Hydroelectric
Station thus holding the fall in the
lake level to an average of .02 of a
foot per day instead of .04 foot as in
previous dry seasons.

Governor Leber

Speaks Saturday

At ROA Dinner
Gov. Walter P. Leber will speak
at a dinner sponsored by the Reserve
Officers Association at the Fort Ama-
dor Officers' Club at 6:30 p.m. Satur-
day. Some 500 persons are expected
to attend.
The address by the new governor
will highlight a dinner-dance, a key
event in observance of National De-
fense Week February 17-25 in the
Canal Zone.
Col. John E. Deming, USAR (Ret.),
president of the Canal Zone Reserve
Officers Association, described the
objetctive of National Defense Week
as "seeking a broader understanding
on the part of all citizens of the need
for such defense forces as will insure
the survival of our nation and the pre-
servation of our liberties. At this par-
ticular time in history, our Armed
Forces, regular and reserve, need and
merit the wholehearted support of all
freedom loving people."
Other organizations sponsoring the
week are the American Legion, Vet-
erans, of Foreign Wars, National
Sojourners, Shriners, National Trans-
portation Association, Knights of Co-
lumbus, Canal Zone Police Associa-
tion, Lions Club, and Benevolent
and Protective Order of Elks, as well
as active military personnel.

Panama Canal towing locomotives ease the huge British flag motor vessel "P-acific Bridge" through Miraflores
Locks on her maiden transit of the Canal. The big bulk carrier, with a summer deadweight of 79,308 long tons
and a depth of 65.9 feet, has the largest cargo-carrying capacity of any ship to use the Canal. Although her length
of 810 feet and beam of 105.7 feet do not match dimensions of several other vessels, her summer draft of 47 feet
10 and % inches, is a record for the Canal. Agents Fenton & Co., said the ship is the first of two being built in
Japan. She is en route to Venezuela for iron ore. She made the Canal transit in ballast with her draft at about
32 feet.

Some Are

Not long ago a ship passed through
the Canal carrying 4,314 pounds of
Tiger wrestling shoes. Another ship's
cargo included 24,000 pounds of
spare parts for rabbit scooters.
The clerks who process data from
the freighters carrying cargoes of the
world through the Panama Canal
weren't fazed.
While the layman might have
visions of tigers in the ring-or even
in the tank-helping rabbit friends
equip their scooters with spare parts,
the clerks reasoned that "Tiger" is a
trade name for a shoe made in Japan
and rabbit scooter a type of motor
bike-also made in Japan.
This sort of thing happens all the
time. Lists of cargo commodities also
have been known to include such
things as 35,000 pounds of flying
things, or 2,168 pounds of pet slip-
pers. The flying things turned out
to be toys or kites and the pet slip-
pers are animal-decorated shoes for
Some other items which have had
Panama Canal clerks scratching their
heads are 10 tons of jiffy pots on
their way from Oslo to Seattle; sev-
eral tons of hot air and 4,500 pounds
of Man from Uncle electric "gitars"
from Japan, probablyy from the.west-
ern part) en route to New York.
One vessel had a shipment of ice
cubes from Germany to the U.S.
west coast (under refrigeration, of
course). The clerks said this was one
of several such shipments. Another
had something called soyabean
deodorizer and 6,608 guillotines,
believed to be an English trade name
for a paper or metal cutting machine.
One of the larger commodities was
one live rhinoceros being shipped as
deck cargo from South Africa to a
zoo in California. Reason given for
carrying him as deck cargo-"Only
way to handle a rhinoceros."
None of the people in charge of
commodity listings has been able to
explain one captain's daughter from
New Zealand to Kingston or a case
of bronze state from Copenhagen to
Los Angeles. The names of some of
the items possibly lose something in
the translation, such as the cargo of
30,000 pounds of bed top crowns
with aluminum spots which might be
red top crowns for beer bottles. They
were on their way to Malaysa-what-
ever they were.

C.Z. Phone Prefix

To Be Changed

On Pacific Side
Effective at midnight February 28,
the prefix 80 will be used, instead of
the present prefix 94, in dialing Pan-
ama Canal-Pacific side telephone
numbers from U.S. military tele-
phones in the Canal Zone.
The .change is being made to
relieve the load on telephone plant
equipment and to provide better
access by military suscribers to Pan-
Canal-Pacific side telephones.
There will be no change in the
numbers now used to dial PanCanal-
Atlantic side numbers or Republic of
Panama numbers.

A 7-week summer session will be
conducted in the Latin American
schools from Monday, February 27,
through Friday, April 21, exclusive of
the week of March 20-24.

Red Cross Has Earned

Admiration "Hard Way"

Citing the American Red Cross as
an organization that has "earned our
admiration and appreciation the hard
way-through work," President Lyn-
don B. Johnson has urged civilian
employees of the Federal Govern-
ment and members of the Armed
Forces to support that organization.
In a memorandum from The White
House, the President said:
"The American Red Cross has im-
portant responsibilities. The greatest
of these is to express in practical
terms our concern for our neighbors
when they are beset by the upheavals
of war and disaster. This is the mis-
sion assigned to the Red Cross in its
Congressional Charter. This is the
mission it has accomplished superbly
for more than 85 years at home and
abroad. The organization has earned
our admiration and appreciation the
hard way-through hard work.
"Today men and women of the
Red Cross are serving our men in
Vietnam in the jungles, in the hamlets,
in the military hospitals and in re-
creation units behind the lines. Other
staff members and thousands of vol-
unteers are helping with the problems
and emergencies of American service-
men and their families in this coun-
try and at many overseas military
"Each year the Red Cross mobilizes
its resources to extend emergency re-
lief and recovery aid to the victims of
some 300 major disasters, while
through the Red Cross chapters as-
sistance is given to those who suffer
in thousands of smaller catastrophes.
The unusually serious disasters of the
past 2 years, the increasing require-
ments of the essential Blood Program

and the continuing need of Americans
for first aid and water safety train-

ing-all add up to a difficult and costly
job for the Red Cross.
"Overseas and within the Federal
establishment in this country the Red
Cross participates in the Combined
Federal Campaign but about half of
3,350 Red Cross chapters conduct
independent March Campaigns. All
Chapters use the month of March for
educational campaigns to inform the

sometimes even during the week
when the tide is high. Thousands of
residents of Panama and the Canal
Zone take advantage of the pleasant
tree-lined beach and the clubhouse
which is operated by Victor G. Taft

The first volume of a projected 3-
volume biography, George Washing-
ton: the Forge of Experience, 1732-
1775, by James Thomas Flexner, is
best described in the author's own
words. "When I undertook this bio-
graphy of Washington . I tried
to empty my mind of every precon-
ception that existed about his charac-
ter and career. I tried to start my
study as if I had never before heard
the name of Washington. I did not
even asume that he had been good
and great.
"My labors have persuaded me that
he became one of the noblest and
greatest men who ever lived. But
he was not born that way. He did
not spring from the head of Jove
already armored with wisdom and
"He perfected himself gradually
through the exercise of his own will
and skill. This volume presents the
experiences from which George
Washington learned, and tries to
show, by his actions and his written
thoughts, how he reacted to each
stage of his long apprenticeship up to
the moment when, formed by the
years into a great leader, the Ameri-
can hero unsheathed the revolutionary

Mrs. Axton T. Jones, wife of the Panama Canal Transportation and Terminals director, accepts a gift of a beauti-
ful mola from Cuna Chief Iguaitippelle of Tigre Island, San Bias. Center is Gilbert Sollas, administrative assistant
to Captain Jones. Chief Iguaitippelle and members of his tribe are shown aboard a Panama Railroad car.. The
gift was in appreciation of a train ride, the first for the Cunas, arranged by Captain Jones.

Cuna Group Gets

1st Train Ride,

Look at Canal

The first train ride and the first look
at the Panama Canal were enjoyed
recently by a group of Cuna Indians
who participated in Atlantic side
carnival festivities.
The Indians were invited by the
Colon Carnival Junta to perform in
the dances, parades and other func-
tions of carnival, which this year was
entitled "Carnival of the Molas."
Headed by Chief Iguaitippelle of
Isla Tigre, the more than three dozen
visitors from San Blas contributed
much to the success of all the carnival
programs in which they participated.
While the Cunas were in Colon,
Panama Canal Transportation and
Terminals Director Capt. Axton T.
Jones received word that they had
never been aboard a train and that
they had never seen the Canal. Cap-
tain Jones went to work and this
situation was altered immediately.
Through Donald R. Brayton, man-
ager of the Railroad Division, Captain
Jones arranged for the Indians to ride
the Panama Railroad from Colon to
Gatun, where they were taken on a
conducted tour of the locks by mem-
bers of the Guide Service. The tour
included a trip to the control tower
and a full briefing on the operations
of the locks and other points of
As a gesture of appreciation and
good will, Chief Iguaitippelle pre-
sented, on behalf of his people, a
beautiful mola, to Mrs. Jones.

Russell Garcia, second from right, composer and conductor of Hollywood, Calif., is owner and captain of the
41-foot trimaran that is visiting the Isthmus in the course of a round-the-world cruise. At right is his wife, Gina.
At left are Deputy County Counsel of Los Angeles Ronald Schneider and Mrs. Schneider.

The grandson of an early Califor-
nia settler who walked across the
Isthmus in 1840-some 40 years be-
fore even mapping work was begun
by the French on the Panama Canal
project, has followed in his grand-
father's footsteps, but only in direc-
tion of travel-from the Atlantic to
the Pacific coast.
Today's traveler is Russell Garcia,
composer and conductor of Holly-
wood, Calif., who is owner and cap-
tain of the trimaran Dawn Breaker,
here for about a month before contin-
uing on a round-the-world trip.
Also traveling on board the Dawn
Breaker are the captain's wife, Gina;
Ronald and Lois Schneider and son,
Stephen, 13, of Los Angeles, and
Paul Slaughter of Hollywood, stage
and TV actor and radio announcer.
For Garcia, the Canal transit was
a special thrill, for he had heard tales
of the walk across the Isthmus by his
grandfather, Joseph Garcia, who was
a small boy when he made the trip
with his father. The Garcias were
early day settlers in California, and
young Joseph Garcia and his father
had come to the Isthmus by boat
from Boston.
After walking to the Pacific side,
they boarded a vessel to San Francis-
co. Young Joseph was left behind in
California when his father returned
to pick up the child's mother and her
sister. They departed on a boat sched-
uled to go around the Horn, but no
trace has ever been found of boat or

members of the Baha'i World Faith
and the trimaran's name recalls the
early days of this faith, when 40,000
early followers were tortured and
killed in the Near East. Those martyrs
are known as "Dawn Breakers."
The Dawn Breaker was built in
Florida and, to board it, the Califor-
nia travelers motored cross-country
with a trailer load of boat supplies
and food. After a delay due to Hur-
ricane Alma, they started just after
Christmas, sailing from Fort Lauder-
When off Long Island, in the Ba-
hamas, their steering went out com-
pletely. But the trouble was found to
be the steering cable, which had come
unscrewed. With this corrected, on
they sailed.
Everyone takes turns on the helm
and watches, and the two women do
the cooking. Each night a consulta-
tion is held "to clear the air" and
any problems, annoyances or irrita-
tions encountered during the day are
dealt with by the group.
Garcia has worked as composer
and conductor with Universal Pic-
tures and MGM. He was doing the
TV show "Laredo" at the time he
left Hollywood for this trip. He
worked on "The Virginian" and
"Wild, Wild West." He did the score
for "The Pad," a recent Universal
film, and also did the score for MGM's
"The Time Machine." He and his
wife plan to be in Haifa for a Baha'i
pilgrimage in 1969.
Schneider is a doctor-at-law and
Deputy County Counsel of Los
Angeles, specializing in trial work.
He and his wife and son plan to
spend some time in Australia and

M- U-.-1---'

Dear Abby:
I have a terrible problem, my boy
friend is German and adores German
food. So I decided I would cook him
a typical German dinner. I invested
$5 in a German cookbook, and spent
2 days preparing the meal. The big
night came and I proudly served him
the food I had so carefully prepared.
Well, Abby, he ate it-but he sort of
had this pained look on his face the
whole time. I asked him what the
matter was, and he said it was sweet
of me to go to so much trouble, but it
just didn't taste like the real thing.
That was 2 months ago, and Abby,
I haven't seen him since. What shall
I do?
Slave to a German Cookbook.
Don't feel too bad. It's very hard to
prepare German food the right way.
But don't despair; I have a solution
for you. Call your boy friend and
invite him to the German Night
Buffet at the Tivoli Guest House
Monday, February 27. The menu is
sure to win him back-Sauerbraten,
Potato Dumplings, German Style
Sauerkraut, Hot German Potato
Salad, Rye Bread, Rolls, Butter,
Relish Tray, Assorted Pastries, and
I guarantee the food will delight
him, and he'll be forever grateful to
you for telling him about the Buffet
in the first place. By the way, the
Buffet has such convenient seating
hours he won't even grumble about
going out for dinner! Just call
2-2111 for a 5:30, 6:30, or 7:30
seating. The price? Besides the food,
the price will really make him happy;
$1.50 for adults and $1 for children.
So, be a smart girl, and take him
to the Tivoli Guest House German
Night Buffet.
Do you remember your childhood?
Long, lazy Sunday mornings. Sunlight
streaming over a table groaning with
special food that Mother prepared
on that day. Father buried behind
the Sunday papers. You and your
brothers or sisters mildly arguing
over the comic section. Then your
special feeling as you prepare for
church; a feeling mixed with happi-
ness because you can wear your Sun-
day best, and profound peace be-
cause soon you'll be off to church.

Ace-Paul Moser, a teacher at Curun-
du Junior High School, has joined the
Hole in One Club. He scored his ace
on the par 3, 145-yard No. 9 hole at
Rodman. Moser hit a high shot to the
green with a 9 iron. The ball landed
above the hole, took a bite, and rolled
back into the cup. Moser was playing
with a foursome at the time. The
others in the foursome were Jim Wolf,
Sid Kennon, and Jim Hunt.

Young Bowlers

Tourney Planned

About 300 young bowlers from
both sides of the Isthmus are expected
to participate in a junior bowling
tournament at the Balboa Bowling
Alley on March 18, under the
sponsorship of the Isthmian Junior

senior bowlers taking part.
Alden Muller of Howard AFB is
in charge of the tournament. Seven
leagues will be represented, each with
a coach. Trophies will be presented
in the junior and senior divisions.
In the Junior Bowling League of
Balboa there are 12 teams of boys
and girls, 11 to 18 years of age, with
four young bowlers to a team. There
also are six substitutes.
The Balboa Junior Bowling League
started bowling, Saturdays, in Sep-
tember and will conclude 22 weeks
of league bowling the first week
of April.

l Otro Gigantesco Transportador

Establece Record en el Canal

Las locomotoras de remolque del Canal de Panama ayudan a la gigantesca motonave "Pacific Bridge", de bandera
britAnica, a pasar a travys de las Esclusas de Miraflores, en su viaje inaugural a travis del Canal de PanamA. El
tremendo transportador de carga a granel, con un tonelaje de 79.308 toneladas y una profundidad de 65.9 pies,
tiene mis capacidad de carga que cualquier nave que transit por el Canal. A pesar de que su largo de 810 pies
y su manga de 105.7 pies, no son tan grandes como los de otras naves que ya han pasado por el Canal, su
calado de 47 pies 10% de pulgada, es un record en el Canal. Sus agents, Fenton & Cia., anunciaron que es la pri-
mera de dos naves iguales construidas en el Jap6n. Se dirige a Venezuela a cargar mineral de hierro. IHizo su
trAnsito initial en lastre, a pesar de lo cual iba calando unos 32 pies.

Nuevas marcas de carga fueron im-
puestas la semana pasada, cuando
transit rumbo al sur, el transportador
combinado de minerales y aceite
Scenic, llevando por el Canal de
PanamA, el 15 de febrero, 55.214
toneladas largas de carb6n, casi 200
toneladas mAs que la marca anterior
de 55.027 toneladas largas, transpor-
tadas por el Melodic el 28 de noviem-
bre de 1966.
El Scenic, gigante de bandera
liberiana, de 789 pies de largo y de
104 pies de manga, impuso marca en
cuanto a carga por primera vez en
el Canal, en octubre de 1966 cuando
transport6 53.443 toneladas largas de
carb6n en ruta de Newport News al
Jap6n. Operado por la Triton Ship-
ping Co., el barco es representado en
el Canal por Panama Agencies.
Fue possible que el Scenic transpor-
tara esa inmensa cantidad de carga,
debido al calado extra de 40 pies que
se le permit a ciertas naves, desde el
19 de enero. La nave transit calando
un poco menos de 40 pies y fue, pro-
bablemente, el iltimo barco al que
se le permit transitar el Canal en la
present estaci6n seca con un calado
mayor de 39 pies 6 pulgadas. '

Debido a la baja continue en el
nivel del Lago Gat6n, el calado ha
sido rebajado a 39 pies 6 pulgadas,
a partir del 15 de febrero y a media
que el nivel siga bajando, seguir-A
siendo reducido.
El Director de Marina ha expresado
la esperanza, sin embargo, de que sea
possible mantener el calado mAximo
a un minimo de 38 pies este afio.
Hasta ahora, ello parece possible. Para
el 20 de febrero, el nivel del lago
habia bajado a 86.40 pies, lo cual es

Cargamentos Rarisimos

Transitan por el Canal

No hace much pas6 un barco por
el Canal de PanamA, llevando a bor-
do 4.314 libras de zapatos de lucha-
dores marca "Tigre". La carga de
otra nave incluia 24.000 libras de
piezas de repuesto para motonetas
Los oficinistas que procesan los
informes de los cargueros que pasan
por la via interoceAnica llevando los
cargamentos de todo el mundo, se
pusieron a pensar.
El que no conoce puede tener vi-
siones de tigres enredados en tremen-
da lucha dentro del cuadrilAtero y
amistosos conejos en busca de repues-
tos para sus motonetas, pero los
oficinistas del Canal comprendieron
que los zapatos eran marca "Tigre"
y las piezas eran para motonetas mar-
ca "Conejo", ambos products fabri-
cados en Jap6n.
Cosas asi pasan todos los dias. Las
listas de carga tambi6n han incluido
articulos tales como 35.000 libras de
objetos voladores, o 2.168 libras de
zapatillas de mascotas. Los objetos
voladores resultaron ser juguetes o
cometas y las zapatillas estaban de-
coradas con animalitos y eran para
Otros articulos que han tenido a los
oficinistas del Canal de PanamA ras-
cAndose la cabeza, fueron 10 tonela-
das de calderas jiffy procedentes de
Oslo, con destino a Seattle; varias
toneladas de aire caliente y 4.500 to-
neladas de guitarras electricas del
Hombre de CIPOL, fabricadas en
Jap6n, en ruta hacia Nueva York.
Una nave Ilevaba un cargamento
de cubitos de hielo de Alemania con
destino a la Costa Occidental de Es-
tados Unidos (Por supuesto que iban
en compartimientos refrigerados). Los
oficinistas dijeron que era uno de va-
rios embarques. Otro barco llevaba
algo llamado desodorantes de frijol de
soya y 6.608 libras de guillotinas,
que se cree sea la marca de fAbrica

de una fabrica inglesa de mAquinas
para cortar papel o metal.
Uno de los articulos mis grandes
fue un rinoceronte vivo, que se envi6
como carga de sobre cubierta, desde
Africa del Sur a un Zool6gico de
California. La raz6n que se di6 para
Ilevarlo sobre cubierta fue que "era
la inica manera de poder tratar a un
Ninguna de las personas a cargo
del manejo de las listas de products
ha podido explicar qu6 era "la hija
de un capitin", enviada desde Nueva
Zelandia a Kingston, o el caso de "un
estado de bronce" enviado de Copen-
hague a Los Angeles.
Los nombres de algunos products
pueden perder algo con la traducci6n,
como pas6 con las 30.000 libras de
coronas de cubiertas de camas con
manchas de aluminio, que podrian
ser platillos para tapar botellas de la
cerveza Red Top. Sea lo que fueren,
iban con destino a Malasia.

Este alto nivel del lago ha sido
