THE PANAMA CANAL Giftofthe Panam, Canal Museum

Vol. V, No. 46 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, May 5, 1967




Due to the retirement of both the
postmaster and the assistant post-
master in Balboa, a shift in top Canal
Zone postal personnel has been
announced by the Division of Posts.
Ralph E. Shuey, who has been
Balboa postmaster since 1962, is re-
tiring May 9 and will be succeeded
by David C. Rose, postmaster in
At the same time the Postal Divi-
sion announced that William Halvosa,
assistant postmaster in Cristobal, has
been appointed postmaster in Cris-
tobal to succeed Rose.
Carroll E. Kocher, assistant post-
master in Balboa since 1965, is re-
tiring May 17. No replacements have
been announced for the two assistant
postmaster positions.
Both Shuey and Kocher have con-
tinuous service with the Canal Zone
Postal Division dating back to 1930.
Shuey was born in Kansas and Kocher
in Kentucky, but both came to the
Isthmus with their parents and
attended Canal Zone schools. Both
have served in various post offices in
the Canal Zone and both were postal
inspectors before taking over their
positions in the Balboa Post Office.
Rose was born in Ancon, attended
Canal Zone schools, and has been
with the Postal Division since 1936.
He served with the U.S. Navy from
1944 to 1946, was reemployed by the
Postal Division, and was general
foreman of the former Mail Handling
Unit in Ancon at the time he was
appointed to the position of Post-
master in Cristobal.
Halvosa also was born in the Canal
Zone and is a second generation Pan-
ama Canal employee. He was em-
ployed by the Postal Division in 1938
after 2 years in Canal Zone College
and served with the U.S. Navy from
1944 to 1946. He was foreman of
the former Mail Handling Unit when
he was made assistant postmaster in
Cristobal in 1964.

Hospital Week Observance Set

May 7-13 for "Cities of Care"

May 7-13 is Hospital Week, spon-
sored by the American Hospital Asso-
ciation, of which our hospitals are
member institutions.
It is a good time to reflect upon
the Canal Zone hospitals: Gorgas,
Coco Solo, Corozal, and Palo Seco.
Canal Zone hospitals today vir-
tually represent cities within them-
selves, employing many people with
diverse backgrounds and occupations,
making available the most sophisti-
cated equipment that modem medical
technology can provide.
Our hospitals are really "Cities of
Care" . staffed 24 hours a day,
7 days a week, to protect and restore
health in much the same manner that
the police and fire department work
around the clock to protect lives and
property. Hospitalization is costly, but
when life and health are at stake, the
only economical hospital care is the
best hospital care.
Among the most significant statistics
to indicate the quality of medical care
are the newborn and maternal death
The newborn (neonatal) death rate
is the number of babies who die
within the first months of life per
1,000 live births. The maternal death
rate is the number of mothers who

die during or as a result of child-
birth per 10,000 live births.
In the United States in 1963 (last
figures available) the death rate for
newborns was 15.79 per 1,000 live
births. In the Canal Zone in 1966 it
was only 13.53.
The maternal mortality rate in the
Canal Zone in 1966 was zero; in '63
in the United States of America it was
3.6 per 10,000 live births.
"Our hospitals are dynamic and
flexible, responding to changing
health needs of the community," says
Col. Harry D. Offutt, Jr., M.D.,
Acting Health Director of the Canal
Zone. "Hospital Week provides an
opportunity to learn more about the
hospital services available."
Approximately one out of every
seven persons visits a hospital for
treatment each year.
Approximately 400 volunteers work
regularly in Canal Zone hospitals,
both teenagers and adults, giving
about 3,000 hours a month of service.
The second week of May was
selected as Hospital Week because it
is the week of Florence Nightengale's
birthday (May 12). During the year
you might be one of the 10-12,000
who will need hospitalization in the
Zone. Hospital Week brings the atten-
tion of all to these institutions.


Progress Report: Cut Widening

Although work on the contract for
widening of Bas Obispo-Las Cascadas
reaches of the Panama Canal has been
under way for little more than 3
months, approximately 400,000 cubic
yards of Zone I material (above eleva-
tion 95) has been removed.
Drilling for Zone II work (below
elevation 95), in separate linear feet
drill holes, has amounted to more
than a mile of drilling, and more
than 33,000 pounds of explosives have
been used in Zone II blasting.
The Zone I work finished to date
represents approximately 11Vz percent
of the total job.
All figures are on progress to

May 1. The first blasting was done
January 24 and digging started 2 days
When all the work is completed,
the last 3.1 miles of Gaillard Cut will
have been widened to 500 feet and
the number of special transit sched-
ules will be reduced from a current
figure of approximately 23 percent to
no more than 3 percent of total traffic.
The prime contractor, Oman Con-
struction Co., Inc., of Nashville,
Tenn., has employed three subcon-
tractors to accomplish the work.
Removal of all Zone I material
has been assigned to Foster Construc-
tion Co. Drilling of all Zone II mate-

rial has been assigned to the West
Texas Drilling Co. Supplier of ex-
plosives for the entire project is Her-
cules Trading Co., a subsidiary of
Hercules, Inc.
Progress on Zone I work has been
good due to a 10-hour day, 6-day
week work schedule and, until last
week, favorable dry season working
The Foster firm is using an electric
power shovel with a 6-cubic-yard
bucket and two track-mounted bucket
loaders to load material into a fleet
of rock wagons. The material then is
carried to spoil areas and dumped.
With Zone II drilling just begun,
a barge-mounted drill is being used
to drill underwater holes (photo in
Spanish section) and two truck-
mounted drills are used for drilling
holes from land.
Several types of blasting agents
have been used by Hercules. They
include 60 percent ammonia gelatin,
nitro-carbo-nitrates, and slurry. The
slurry is now undergoing field tests to
determine if it will produce breakage
comparable to the specified 6.0 per-
cent ammonia gelatin.
A central mixing truck blends
\.riious ingredients to make the liquid
slurry, which then may be pumped
into the holes through a rubber hose.
In holes filled with water, or ones
badly fractured, a plastic bag is used
around the slurry to contain- the ex-
plosive. A special loading machine for
making slurry "sausages" has been
developed in the field. (Photo in
Spanish section.)
The Zone II drilling footage is only
about three-tenths of 1 percent of the

PanCanal "launching tower?"-It looks a bit like it, but it's not part of a
space ship launching pad. It's actually a "first time" technique utilized by
Industrial Division forces for installation of bronze liner segments on the
propellor shaft for the tug "Wallace." Liner segments are heated to expand
diameter of the bore. Then, using special slings and clamps, the crane raises
the shaft by the propellor flange and drops it through the expanded bore.
Each liner segment has a stepped end to assure tight overlapping joints and
a final continuous water-tight surface. The platform construction design was
evolved by C. W. Field, Acting Assistant Division Chief and Foreman of
the Metalworking Shop. The procedure assured accurate repair enabling
tug overhaul work to proceed about 4 or 5 weeks earlier than if the job had
been sent to a U.S. shipyard.

Pop art has been called an instant
art form for an instant society. Mario
Amaya, in his book Pop Art . and
After, prefers to call it the New Super
Realism. He traces the beginning of
pop art to England in the early 1950's
and its development there and in the
United States. Then follow descrip-
tions of various pop artists and the
styles and media they use. The many
full-page illustrations are a valuable
part of the book. Looking at them
and dipping into Amaya's clear text
will give the reader a good idea of
what the pop artist is trying to say.

Jon Cleary in The High Commis-
sioner has written a suspense story
with an intricate plot and strongly
individual characters. A rough-hewn
police sergeant from Sydney is sent
to London to arrest a high commis-
sioner for murder. The commissioner
is presiding at an international meet-
ing which brings in all sorts of sinister
types. The friendship that develops
between the layman and his quarry
complicates things still more.
The Language of Life is an intro-
duction to the science of genetics
by Nobel-prizewinner George W.
Beadle and his wife, Muriel, whose
book of a few years ago called "These
Ruins Are Inhabited" told about the
year the Beadles spent at Oxford Uni-
versity. The theory behind their new
book is "that if George could explain
genetics in terms simple enough for
Muriel to grasp, anybody could
understand it." What they have
produced is a lucid account of a fas-
cinating science, together with the
pageant of people and ideas which
have made its history. Drawings and
well chosen examples and analogies
insure the reader's comprehension.
Lawrence S. Ritter has written a
book about baseball in an unusual
way. He traveled around the country
with a tape recorder and talked to
20 former big league ballplayers
about the famous players they knew

and the games they played in. In his
book The Glory of Their Times, he
has done little editing of the tapes,
except to eliminate his own questions.
Here is an eyewitness account of
Merkle's "bonehead" play which cost
the Giants the pennant in 1908, what
his players really thought about John
J. McGraw, how Lefty O'Doul
started professional baseball in Japan,
how Ty Cobb stole home. The book
is a nostalgic feast for baseball lovers.
Mary Kelly's new book, Dead
Corse, is a good suspense story. The
plot is a classic detective puzzler
involving blackmail and murder. The
characters are complex and well
realized. A surprising factor is the
interesting and unique background
of Great Britain's mammoth steel

career, you can be justly proud,"
Governor Leber said. "You have
worked for an organization that has

Rainy Season Not Earliest,

But it Was a Little Early

The rainy season, which started i of December 1966 started Gatun and

officially April 27, was not the earliest
on record, nor could it even tie for
third place. But it is one of relatively
few to start before May 1. There have
been only 13 of these since 1914.
Earliest ever was the April 3 date
listed for 1960 and second earliest
was back in 1919. Last year the rains
came April 15 which made 1966 the
third earliest start for a rainy season
since the Canal opened.
The dry season this year followed
the previous years' pattern fairly
closely. Last year dry season began
officially December 25 and ended
April 15. This year it began Decem-
ber 26 and started to end around
April 15 when rains began to fall on
the Pacific side. The wet weather
dried up beyond Pedro Miguel and
little or no rain was reported from
the Atlantic side until April 27.
Exact starting and ending dates for
the dry and rainy seasons are far from
solid. Hydrographic Office personnel
concede that it's hard to pinpoint one
day as starting or ending day since
there is often a 2 or 3 week period,
as there was this year, when the wet
season is just around the corner. This
year stiff northerly winds kept the
intertropical convergence zone hover-
ing off the Pacific coast.
In addition to general rains over
most of the Isthmus, another sure
sign that the rains have begun is the
increase of the Gatun Lake drainage
basin in-flow which halts the con-
tinuous dry season drop of Gatun and
Madden Lakes and starts them creep-
ing upward.
This years' reversal started April 28
with a rise of Gatun Lake from 85.24
feet to 85.33 feet in a.24-hour period.
During the same period Madden Lake
rose from 224.84 feet to 225.28 feet.
Heavy rains during the latter part

Airmail Postage Up for Some Areas

There's an increase in airmail post-
age from the Canal Zone to Europe
and Mediterranean Africa and an in-
crease in surface mail rates to all other
countries except Panama and the
United States.
The new rates reflect a similar in-
crease put into effect May 1 in the
United States.
Airmail rates from the Canal Zone
to Mediterranean Africa and all coun-
tries in Europe except U.S.S.R. were
increased from 20 cents to 25 cents
a half ounce.
Surface mail rates on letters and
letter packages to all countries except
United States and Panama were in-
creased from 11 to 13 cents for the
first ounce and from 7 to 8 cents for

cards have been increased from 7 to
8 cents.
Rates on books and sheet music to
countries of the Postal Union of the
Americas has gone up from 2 to 3
cents for the first 2 ounces. To all
other countries including Spain and
Spanish possessions rates went from
3 to 4 cents.
Other printed matter to all coun-
tries now costs 6 cents instead of 5
cents for the first 2 ounces and sam-
ples of merchandise went up from 5
to 6 cents. Each additional 2 ounces
will cost 4 cents and the minimum
charge is 13 cents instead of 12 cents.

Madden Lakes at a maximum eleva-
tion at the beginning of the 1967 dry
season. This increased elevation bene-
fited the lake levels throughout the
dry season and with water conserva-
tion measures at the locks and cur-
tailed use of Gatun Hydroelectric
plant, Gatun Lake remained nearly a
foot above the level it normally would
have been at the termination of the
recent dry season.
The maximum draft allowance for
large ships using the Canal did not
go below 381V feet during the recent
dry season. This was 21/ feet more
than it was at the end of the dry
season last year.
In view of the rise in the level of
Gatun Lake and the latest Gatun Lake
level predictions, draft allowance was
increased to 39 feet effective a week
ago today, according to a notice to
shippers issued by the Chief of the
Navigation Division.

DR, Annuitants'


Problem Eased
Disability Relief beneficiaries and
Civil Service annuitants on the
Atlantic side will not have to go to the
bank anymore to cash their checks.
The Employee Services Branch, of
the Panama Canal Personnel Bureau,
has made this possible through co-
operation of the Chase Manhattan and
First National City Bank branches in
The banks have agreed to send
their personnel to a new cashier's
cage that has been set up in the Per-
sonnel Bureau Office (in the old Cris-
tobal Fire Station). As Disability
Relief beneficiaries get their checks
from the Panama Canal personnel,
after a quick identification of the per-
son and signature, the bank tellers
will cash the checks for the benefi-
If one of the beneficiaries is too
weak to stand in line, he will be
taken to the head of the line and
served. In case that one of them
would like to rest or get his CARE
package before cashing his check, he
will be able to do so, because bank
personnel will stay as long as

Va Tomando Impulso

Trabajo en el Corte

A pesar de que el trabajo de am-
pliaci6n en las rectas de Bas Obispo
y Las Cascadas, del Canal de Panama,
ha estado efectudndose durante unos
3 meses, ya han sido removidas
aproximadamente unas 400,000 yar-
das csibicas de material de la Zona I,
que es la que queda sobre el nivel
de 95 pies.
Al mismo tiempo, se ha estado per-
forando en la Zona II, que queda
haio el nivel de 95 pies. Si se pusie-
ran juntos los agujeros abiertos hasta
ahora, tendrian mas de 1 milla de
largo y en la voladura de los mate-
riales de esa zona se han usado mais
de 33,000 libras de explosives.
El trabajo terminado hasta ahora
en la Zona I represent aproximada-
mente el 111/2 por ciento del trabajo
Todos los n6meros continuaban en
aurnento el 19 de mayo. La primera
explosion tuvo lugar el 24 de enero
y las excavaciones comenzaron 2 dias
Cuando todo el trabajo quede ter-
minado, las 61timas 3.1 millas del
Corte Gaillard habrAn sido ensancha-
das a 500 pies y el numero de tran-
sitos de manejo especial habra sido
reducido de un 23 por ciento que es
el porcentaje actual, a no mas del 3
por ciento del trAfico total.
El principal contratista, Oman
Construction Co., Inc., de Nashville,
Tennessee, ha empleado tres subcon-
tratistas para cumplir con el proyecto.

Ya Tenemos la Epoca

tluviosa en Panama
La estaci6n Iluviosa, que comenzo
oficialmente el 27 de abril, no es la
que comenzo mas temprano, ni si-
quiera podria empatar el tercer lugar.
Pero es una de las pocas que empeza-
ron antes del 19 de mayo. Desde
1914, s6lo ha habido 13 de ellas.
La que comenz6 mais temprano fue
la que empez6 el 3 de abril de 1960,
le sigui6 luego la de 1919. El afio pa-
sado las lluvias empezaron el 15 de
abril por lo que 1966 qued6 en tercer
lugar respect al inicio de las lluvias,
desde que se abri6 el Canal.
La estaci6n seca de este afio se
pareci6 much a ]a del afio pasado.
La del afio pasado empezo6 oficial-
mente cl 25 de diciembre y termin6
el 15 de abril. Este afio empez6 el 26
de diciembre y comenz6 a finalizar
alrededor del 15 de abril cuando co-
menzaron a caer Iluvias en el lado
Pacifico. No flovi6 mis allai de Pedro
Miguel y se registry poca o casi nin-
guna lluvia en el lado Atlantico hasta
el 27 de abril.

La remoci6n de todo el material
de la Zona I ha sido otorgada a Foster
Construction Co. La perforaci6n de
todo el material de la Zona II ha sido
otorgada a la West Texas Drilling Co.
La Hercules Trading Co., subsidiaria
de Hercules, Inc., suministra los ex-
plosivos para todo el proyecto.
El progress en el trabajo en la
Zna I ha sido bueno, debido a que
-e ha establecido el dia de 10 horas
de trabajo, la semana de 6 dias labo-
rables, y a condiciones favorables de
estaci6n seca hasta la semana pasada.

Personal Adopta

Medida a Favor

De Pensionados
Los pensionados por incapacidad
del Canal de Panama ya no tendran
que ir al banco a cambiar sus
Esta media ha sido tomada por
el Ramo de Servicios a los Emplea-
dos de la Direcci6n de Personal y
ha sido possible gracias a la esplen-
dida cooperaci6n de los bancos Chase
Manhattan y First National City, de
la ciudad de Col6n.
Con ella, los beneficiaries de pen-
siones por incapacidad, quo son per-
sonas en su mayoria enfermas y de
edad avanzada, se evitan el tener que
permanecer en fila durante much
tiempo e ir al banco, con todas las
molestias que ello significa.
La Direcci6n de Personal ha esta-
blecido ventanillas de cajeros en la
vieja Bomba de Crist6bal, que es
donde estt la Oficina de Personal, y
los dos bancos envian dos de sus caje-
ros el dia de la entrega de cheques
de pension. Al recibir sus cheques,
luego de una rapida verificaci6n de
]a persona y su firma, reciben su
dinero de manos de los cajeros que
estain al lado.
Si algi'm beneficiario esta muy
d6bil, a 6se s Ile atiende primero.
Ademals, si alguno de ellos desea des-
cansar o buscar su paquete de la
CARE antes de cambiar el cheque,
puede hacerlo, pues los cajeros per-
rnaneceran en las ventanillas dc la
Oficina de Personal durante todo el
tiempo que sea necesario.
En caso de enmergencia, se con-
tanri con los servicios del Dr. E. C.
Bynoe y de dos e'nfermeeras de la

de costumbre estaran pr'sesitcs para
atender cualquicra de esos casos.

que presta como el que pide pres-
Pero esto no se aplica a viejos
amigos como Frank A. Castles, Su-
perintendente de la Divisi6n de Es-
cuelas y William J. Nickisher, de la
Division Industrial, que se jubila y
deja la Zona del Canal en junior.
Castles y Nickisher han tenido en
compasia un viejo serrucho durante
19 afios. Castles se lo pidi6 prestado a
Nickisher en 1948 cuando eran veci-
nos en una casa de 12 apartamientos,
en Diablo.
Castles lo usaba para cortar en dos
pedazos el jam6n de Pascua de Resu-
rrecci6n y trabajaba tan eficiente-
mente que nunca mas lo devolvi6 a
su duefio, sino hasta hace poco.
La entrega la hizo en forma de re-
galo a su duefio en la fiesta de jubila-
ci6n de Nickisher.

La cajeta bellamente envuelta, que
contenia el serrucho, llevaba una ins-
cripci6n que decia que durante el
cinpo en que la familiar Castles lo
tuvo, se habia usado para cortar 31
jamones, 2 tableros de mesa, 1 dedo
y 1 madero de 2" x 4".
El mensaje agregaba ademds que
el serrucho tenia muchos aios de field
servicio y le pedia a Nickisher que
fuera bondadoso con 61, porque siem-
pre habia sido tratado como una
querida mascota.

de Electricidad del Canal de Panamai, y el Aprendiz de Electricista, de Cuarto
Afio, Nonnan Watkins, a la derecha, de la Divisi6n de Dragas del Canal,
reciben instrucciones que les imparte el Sr. Philip T. Green, a la izquierda,
Jefe del Personal de Adiestramiento Industrial, de la Direcci6n de Personal,
sobre el uso de un ohmimetro para evitar que se quemen los cojinetes
nuevos de un generador, como parte del curso de adiestramiento. Ambos
aprendices terminaron recientemente el Curso de Mantenimiento de Equipo
Industrial Eldctrico, en el Complejo de la Escuela de Artes y Oficios, situada
en los viejos talleres de la Divisi6n Industrial de Balboa.

por medio de una manguera de cau-

de agua, o demasiado fracturados, la

Ocurri6 Primer

Accidente Aereo
El 24 de abril de 1918 ocurri6 el
primer accident aerco en PanamA.
Dos hidroaviones hacian sus manio-
bras acostumbradas. Poco tiempo des-
pu6s de haber despegado, para llevar
a cabo sus practices cotidianas, la mA-
quina pilotada por el Teniente Evans
se incendi6, y este para salvar la mA-
quina y a su pasajero el Teniente
H. J. France, lanz6 el bidroavi6n
bacia el Lago Gat6n. El pilot Evans
nad6 hasta la orilla, pero el Teniente
France pereci6 ahogado.
Los hidroaviones despegaban desde
el entonces conocido como Campo de
Aterrizaje del Ej&rcito en Coco Walk.
Esos lugares han cambiado de nom-
bre. Desde el 15 de julio de 1918,
a casi 3 meses de la muerte del Te-
niente France, el Campo de Aterri-
zaje fue bautizado con el nombre de
France Field. Por otra parte, Coco
Walk, el Sendero de los Cocos, ha
desaparecido dentro del Area conocida
hoy como Coco Solo.
A prop6sito cabe recorder que la
primcra exbibici6n de una maquina
voladora en funcionamiento realizada
en Pahamm la hizo Clarence A. de
Giers, joven aviador neoyorquino, el
21 de abril de 1912. Esta exhibici6n
atrajo a los terrnnos de Juan Franco,.
a unas 2 millas de la entonces ciudad
de PanamA, a cerca de 3.000 residen-
tes que presenciaron extasiados un es-
pecticulo jams visto hasta entonces.
