Lay Plans for

Fair at Bocas

Representatives of the Panama
Canal, U.S. Southern Command, and
U.S. Information Service have begun
preparations for participation in the
colorful Bocas del Toro Fair, sched-
uled this year for September 14-17.
Each United States component
will have its own pavilion and exhibit
at the fair which will be visited by
top ranking officials, or their repre-
sentatives, from the Canal Zone, U.S.
Southern Command. and the Repub-
lic of Panama.
One of the first highlights of the
fair will be a band concert given in
the center of Bocas del Toro at 7
p.m., September 13 by the U.S. Air
Force Southern Command Band.
After U.S. pavilions and exhibits are
readied the following day, the next
big event will be the coronation of
the fair queen in the Bocas Theater
followed by a parade through town
to her majesty's headquarters in the
fair grounds where a dance will be
Sky divers from the Pan American
Sport Parachute Club will get things
started at 9 a.m., September 15, with
one of its daring exhibitions. At 9:15
a.m., President Marco A. Robles or
his representative, Canal Zone Gov.
W. P. Leber and Gen. Robert W.
Porter, Jr., Commander in Chief of
the Southern Command, or his Rep-
resentative, are expected to arrive.
(Continued on p. 4)

The Canal Zone Gem and Mineral
Society was awarded a first place
blue ribbon and Best In Division
plaque for its display of faceted
stones, cabochons and jewelry at the
1967 National Gem and Mineral
Show and Combined Conventions of
American and Eastern Federations in
Washington, D.C.
The show, hosted by the Miner-
alogical Society of the District of
Columbia, Inc., and the Gem and
Lapidary Society of Washington,
D.C., Inc., was held at the Washing-
ton Hilton Hotel.

ROTC Units

Schools Title

Both Balboa and Cristobal High

Corps units have been designated
"Honor Schools" by Headquarters,

This rating, which is based on an
annual formal inspection, is the high-
est designation that any high school
ROTC unit can attain.
The cadet battalions were cited for
the exceptionally high standards at-
tained and the outstanding results
achieved in all of this past school
year's activities and, in particular, for
the overall rating received during the
annual formal inspection.
This marks the 19th consecutive
year that the Canal Zone ROTC has

A member of the society, Miss
Lydia Czapek, of the Panama
Canal Engineering Division, also was
awarded a first place blue ribbon and
plaque for Best In Division for her
thumbnail mineral exhibit. (A thumb-
nail is a specimen which fits into a
1 inch cube.) A delegate to the East-
ern Federation Convention, Miss
Czapek arranged the Canal Zone
exhibit which was sent to the United
States and set up the display at the
Washington show which was the
biggest ever held by the Eastern

For only the second time in the
history of the Panama Canal, the
draft allowance for large ships of cer-
tain classes has been increased to 40
feet. A notice to shipping agents from
the Chief of the Navigation Division
increased the maximum draft allow-
ance of 39 feet 6 inches (set June 27,
1967) by 6 inches, effective August 2.
Ship operators planning to utilize
the 40-foot draft, however, must
obtain advance permission from the
Chief of the Navigation Division,
since the ships must meet certain
design and handling specifications.
The 40-foot draft is allowed on an
individual basis to vessels which have
successfully transited at 39 feet or
The 40-foot draft allowance refers
to tropical fresh water-which means
that the ships permitted to take ad-
vantage of this new figure must have
a draft of no more than 40 feet when
they enter the fresh water of Gatun
Lake. Their tropical salt water draft
is about 1 foot less.
Addition of 6 inches to the per-
missible draft allowance will permit
an increase in cargoes and revenues
for the super ships that use the Pan-
ama Canal. For some big ships, this
may mean they may carry up to
1,100 more long tons of cargo each
The present draft bonus was made
possible, as it was earlier this year,
because of the high level of Gatun
Lake, which continues slightly over
86.50 feet despite heavy Canal traffic
and use of the Gatun hydroelectric
power station to supply increasing

5,921 electric power demands.





A highlight of the show was pres-
entation of a brooch made of gold
and gemstones from the 50 States to
the First Lady. The magnificent
piece of jewelry presented to Mrs.
Johnson, who is the first First Lady
to wear it, was designed and made
by Markowitz of New York. The
brooch is on display at the Smith-
sonian Institution except when being
worn by a President's wife.
Besides the many displays of
jewelry, gemstones, and lapidary arts,
there were lectures on such subjects
as the nomenclature of minerals,
carving gemstones, photographing
minerals, conservation and collection
sites, and casting in precious metals.
Special features of the convention
and shows were interesting favors
such as small sets of books, lecterns,
(Continued on p. 4)

The only other time that the
maximum draft had been authorized
was between December 23, 1966,
and February 14, 1967, during the
early part of the last dry season, when
Gatun Lake level was above 86.5
A number of big ships took ad-
vantage of the extra draft, including
the bulk ore carrier San Juan Mer-
chant, with a record cargo of 45,508
long tons of iron ore bound from
Peru to Italy. This was the first ship
to use the tropical fresh water draft
of 40 feet since permission had been
granted by the Chief of Navigation.

The ship made the transit January 4,
12 days after the draft allowance was
The second was the 800-foot long
bulk carrier Essi Gina, which came
south with a cargo of coal from
Norfolk to Japan.
A gradual increase in the draft per-
mitted certain ships using the Canal
was started early in 1964 when the
Marine Bureau announced a program
of improvements which permitted an
increase to maximum draft allowance
of 37 feet tropical fresh water when-
ever Gatun Lake level was above 85

Recent trends have been more toward mini skirts than this type of "turn of
the century attire." Coffee breakers at the cafeteria of the Administration
Building, Balboa Heights, were understandably a bit surprised by this change
of pace the other day. The Ascot ladies had just made several stops to help
publicize "My Fair Lady," the Canal Zone United Fund's 1967 production
which begins August 18 and continues through August 27. Reservations may
be made by calling Balboa 1772 from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday
through Saturday. From left, Linda Woodruff, Virginia Keller, and Martha

Shepherds of the Night is a new
novel by the brilliant Brazilian author
Jorge Amado. It is set in Amado's
native state of Bahai and is a tale of
the raffish folk that inhabit a tropical
port. Sad and funny by turns, the
book captures the vibrant life of
Brazil and the writer's skill creates
memorable characters.
Theodore V. Olsen belongs to the
new school of writers of Western
novels. No longer is the author of
Westerns content to have his char-
acters shoot it out in the main street
of a cowtown, he must now show the
effect of violence and lawlessness on
the characters he creates. A good
example is Olsen's new novel, Bitter
Grass, which tells about a Civil War
veteran who builds up wealth and
prominence in the West and then is
destroyed through the misuse of his
power. The novel is based on the life
of an actual pioneer cattleman in
In Great Lakes Country, Russell
McKee relates the history of the five
Great Lakes from the earliest nomads
who came more than 13,000 years
ago to the present days of the St.

lavishly illustrated volume are the
historic figures of Cartier and La
Salle, Wolfe and Montcalm, and the
nameless but important throngs of
Indians, voyageurs, fur traders, and
loggers who contributed to the story
of the lakes. Most interesting is the
account of the ships which have plied
the lakes, from the early French ones
that explored the wilderness to the
warships of Oliver Hazard Perry, and
including the pleasure-boats from
Detroit and Chicago and the great
grain-carrying freighters of today.
My Boy John That Went to Sea is
an exciting short novel about whaling
in Antarctica. The captain of the
Petral, one of the whale ships, has

taken along his young son John on
the boy's first voyage. Longing for a
chance at a music career, John at first
hates the rough sea life. Then as he
comes to know the crew and the
hazards they encounter, he achieves
a new maturity about his father and
his own ideals.
A mystery story with good char-
acterizations is Kage Booton's Run-
away Home! A gay young teenager's
friendship with an unscrupulous pop
singer gravely concerns her father.
His efforts to discourage the friend-
ship and to maintain his daughter's
trust and affection make an interesting
story with an unusual and true-to-life

Girls' Nation


Win High Offices

Carol Conyne and Judy Ober-
holtzer, Canal Zone representatives
to 1967 Girls' Nation, won high
offices at the session held July 30 to
August 5.
Carol was named Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff and Judy was
appointed Secretary of the Navy.
Held at the American University
in Washington, D.C., the program
provides delegates from all over the
United States an opportunity for in-
tensive study of our national political
institutions through creation of a
model Government. Delegates fill
positions corresponding to those in
the actual U.S. Government system.
Each pays a visit to her famous coun-
terpart in the Nation's capital.
Girls' Nation, sponsored by the
American Legion Auxiliary, is a
sequel to Girls' States, held earlier in
the year throughout the United
States and in the Canal Zone.

The following angles on safety for
anglers have been given by the Amer-
ican Red Cross:
"Fishing can lead to a wide variety
of accidents if the right safety pre-
cautions are not taken," A. B. Mur-
phy, national director of Red Cross
Safety Services, said.
"Of the 6,800 persons who drowned
last year, about 4,200 were people
who did not intend to be in the water.
Some of these were fishermen who
fell into the water from piers, shores,
and boats."
To help prevent drownings and
other accidents among amateur fisher-
men, Murphy offered these safety
If you're going to fish safely, you
should know how to swim, know basic
first aid, and include a first aid kit in
your gear.
Listen to the weather forecast so
you can dress correctly.
Take along some needlenose pliers,
wire cutters and a pocket knife, and
stow these as well as all fishing tackle,
lines, and hooks in a covered con-
tainer when they are not in use.
Leave word with someone where
you plan to fish and approximately
when you will return. It is an even
better plan to take along a friend.
If you are fishing in waters where
there are swimmers, skin and scuba
divers, or water skiers, be alert to
them as well as to other fishermen
who may be casting near you.
Do not go barefoot. Broken glass,
nails, or other debris can injure your
feet, or you might step on a fish and

cut your foot on its fins. In densely
wooded areas wear some type of
thick-soled boots. If you are fishing
from a boat, do not wear fishing boots
or waders.
If you are wading, do it cautiously
to avoid step-offs into deep water.
Extracting the hook from a fish's
mouth can be dangerous since several
varieties of firsh have teeth that can
lacerate a hand or fingers severely.
Should a hook snag you, cut it from
the line, bandage a dressing around
the injured area, and get to a doctor.
In snake-infested country, watch
where you step, where you place
your hands, and where you sit. Wear
high boots because over half of all
bites are below mid-calf.
Don't anchor a boat in a channel
or tie up to a buoy, for these are
traffic lanes and must be kept clear
at all times.
When fishing in a small boat, re-
main seated while casting and cast
overhead, not sideann. Arid be sure
to carry along a life preserver for
every passenger aboard.

Panama City Will Mark

Key Anniversary Tuesday

(Photos in Spanish Section)

Four hundred and forty-eight years
ago-August 15, 1519-a new site was
founded on the coast of the Pacific
Ocean which was to serve as a base
for future expeditions by the Span-
iards in their conquest of the New
Because of its location, the tiny
fishing village became the center of
commercial activity. Soon it was
capital of Tierra Firme and the seat
of the Government and the Church.
Panama grew and prospered from
the maritime traffic which criss-
crossed its three roads on muleback.
The three roads led to the city. One,
on the west, led to what is today
La Boca. Another, on the northwest,
went to Nata. On the northeast, the
old stone highway connected Old
Panama with Portobelo. The treasures
of South America destined for Spain
and the commerce of the mother
country to her colonies were carried
across the Isthmus.
The Church flourished and Pan-
ama also became the center of educa-
tion and culture. A population of
some 12,000 lived in European ele-
gance in attractive wooden houses.
A magnificent cathedral, several beau-
tiful churches and eigth convents

were in the city. Warehouses were
filled with merchandise. There were
a good hospital, a public market, and
a slave market.
This was Old Panama, the first
city on the American continent, which
through her powerful mother coun-
try, became the most civilized,
vigorous, and grand of the entire
American continent.
This was Old Panama when she
was seized by Henry Morgan in 1671.

feet. This maximum draft allowance
was increased to 38 feet toward the
end of the year and to 39 feet in
1965. It was increased to a maximum
of 39 feet 6 inches in January 1966
on an experimental basis. Maximum
draft for the Panama Canal will not
exceed 40 feet.
The Panama Canal at present has
one of the deepest permissible vessel
drafts in the world. The maximum at
the Suez Canal is 38 feet and the
St. Lawrence Seaway Authority and
the U.S. St. Lawrence Seaway De-
velopment Corp. recently announced
the maximum permissible vessel draft
for Seaway transit had been increased
to 25 feet 9 inches.




The flag of Jamaica is held proudly by T. H. Saunders, 79, former resident of
Jamaica, who retired from the Panama Canal Building Division 20 years ago.
Giving him a wifely smile is Mrs. Saunders. The couple were members of
a group of some 75 retired West Indian employees who boarded the Panama
Canal sightseeing launch "Las Cruces" Monday morning for a partial transit
of the Canal to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the independence of
Jamaica, Tobago, and Trinidad. They also were taken on a tour of Miraflores
Locks as guests of the Employee Services Branch of the Panama Canal
Personnel Bureau.

On Post Office

Boxes Not Toys

Post office boxes with combination
locks are not as invincible as one
might think, warned Canal Zone Post
Office officials this week.
Recently, cases have been reported
of unaccompanied children loitering
in Canal Zone post offices twirling
combination locks until they hit upon
a sequence that opens them. Any one
of a number of things may happen
to the mail inside after this occurs.
Post office personnel warn parents
to keep children away from post
office boxes which are not their own.
And all members of the family
should be sure that the lock on their
own post office box is secure after
they pick up the mail.

El Canal Permite

40 Pies de Calado

Por segunda vez en toda la historic
del Canal de PanamA, a ciertas naves
grandes de cierto tipo se les ha
aumentado el calado a 40 pies.
Los agents navieros han recibido
un aviso del Jefe de la Division de
Navegaci6n del Canal de Panama en
que se les notifica que el calado de
39 pies 6 pulgadas autorizado desde
el 27 de junior de 1967, ha sido
aumentado en 6 pulgadas, a partir
del 2 de agosto.
Sin embargo, los armadores que
piensen aprovechar el calado de 40
pies, deben obtener por adelantado
cl penniso del Jefe de la Division de
Navegaci6n, ya que las naves debe-
ran ajustarse a ciertas especificacio-
nes de disefio y de manejo. El calado
de 40 pies se permit, en base indi-
vidual, a naves que anteriomnnente
hayan transitado el Canal calando 39
pies o mas.
Los 40 pies serAn de calado en
agua dulce tropical, lo que quicre
decir que las naves a las (que se les
permitira aprovecharse de esta ven-
taja no debcrAi. calar mis de 40 pies
cuando entren en las aguas del Lago
Catfn. El calado en agua salad tro-
pical de estas naves es sin embargo
de 1 pie menos.
Una adici6n de 6 pulgadas en el
calado, permnnitiira a las super naves

aumentar sus cargamentos y sus uti-
lidades, cuando utilicen el Canal de
PanamA. Para algunos de los bareos
grandes ello significa que podran car-
gar hasta 1.100 toneladas largas mAs
en cada transito.
El present calado ha side permi-
tido, de la misma manera que a prin-
cipios de este afio, debido al alto nivel
del Lago GatUin, que continia algo
mas arriba de los 86.5 pies, a pesar
del intense trAfico por el Canal y cl
uso de la plant hidroel6ctrica de
Catufn que se hace necesario debido
a las necesidades ciecientes de ener-
gia el6ctrica.
La 6nica vez en que se autoriz6
antes el calado de 40 pies fue entree
el 23 de diciembre de 1966 y el 14
de febrero de 1937, durante el prin-
cipio de la 1ultima estaci6n seca,

Mucho Cuidado
Con los Ninfos

Y los Apartados
Los apartados postales con cerra-
dura de combinaci6n no son tan in-
vencibles como uno podria pensar,
fue la advertencia que hicieron esta
semana los funcionarios del Correo
de la Zona del Canal.
Recientemente, se ha dado el caso
de nifios que sin star acompafiados
de sus padres, se dedican en las ofi-
cinas de correos de la Zona del Canal
a darle vueltas a las combinaciones de
los apartados hasta que dan con una
secuencia que las abre. Despu6s que
la combinaci6n es abierta, muchas
cosas pueden sucederle a la corres-
pondencia que se encuentre dentro
del apartado.
El personal de correos advierte a
los padres de familiar que deben man-
tener a sus nifios alejados de los apar-
tados postales que no sean los pro-
pios. Y todos los miembros de la
familiar deben asegurarse que el apar-
tado quede debidamente cerrado lue-
go que se recoja la correspondencia.

anal. en el Centro de Bienestar Social de
Petit Santa Cruz, los miercoles y viernes
de 4:30 a 6:30 p.m.

Los prop6sitos del club pueden
cumplirse s6lo gracias a la valiosa
cooperacion que voluntariamente
brindan los instructors, graduados
todos del curso que brinda el Escua-
drdn de Instrucci6n NAutica de la
Zona del Canal y poseedores del Cer-
tificado de Practicaje y Manejo de
Embarcaciones Menores, que dicho

escuadr6n otorga luego de pasar sa-
tisfactoriamente un examen escrito.
Entre los instructors que brin-
dan sus servicios desinteresados a
tan meritoria causa, estAn Gilbert
Card, Partrick N. Jamieson, el Capi-
tan Julio Newball y el CapitAn Wil-
liam H. Gordon, quien cuenta con
muchos afios de navegaci6n por el
Canal y por los dos litorales de la

civilizaci6n para difundir su luz a
regions desconocidas, y en la otra

bella ciudad que en un tiempo fue
el centre del progress y del campc

Dentro de su seno, la religion sos-

Sus operaciones militares produje-
ron constant movimiento de varia-

blancos, mulatos y negros, armados
de mosquetes y arcabuces.
De esa bella ciudad, que pereci6

majestuosas que, envueltas en mis-
terioso silencio, no son mAs que el
eco de pasadas glorias y grandezas.

Educacion en Prevention de Accidentes

La convicci6n de que los trabajadores que ban recibido instrucci6n sobre
Prevenci6n de Accidentes en sus afios escolares, tienen menos posibilidades
de sufrir accidents y en consecuencia costarle menos dinero a sus patro-
nos que los que no la han tenido, se estA extendiendo considerablemente
en los medios industriales.
Hace much tiempo que la industrial se ha dado cuenta de que, ademAs
de un interns humanitario, tiene un interns egoista el considerar la seguridad
y bienestar de sus trabajadores. La industrial estA cada vez mis interesada
en lograr que las condiciones de trabajo sean mAs seguras, a un punto tal
que el trabajador ya se siente mas seguro en su lugar de trabajo que en
su propio hogar.
Pero la industrial ha ido un poco mas lejos. El hecho de que el trabajador
sufra un accident en el trabajo o fuera de 61, hace poca diferencia en lo que
a los resultados se refiere; en ambos casos el trabajador estarA ausente de sus
labores, y esta ausencia le costara dinero a la empresa. Como consecuencia
de esto la industrial estA concentrando sus esfuerzos en la seguridad fuera
I del trabajo.
,Qud tiene esto que ver con el interns que la industrial pueda tener en
la instrucci6n dada sobre Prevenci6n de Accidentes en las escuelas?
Las posibilidades son que un nifio o joven que no observe los principios
de seguridad en la escuela, tampoco los observara en el lugar de trabajo.
A menos que un trabajador haya recibido una instrucci6n s6lida en los prin-
cipios de Prevenci6n de Accidentes durante su nifiez, la industrial no tendrA
una buena base para edificar una s6lida conciencia de seguridad.
Por otra parte, si el trabajador tiene conocimientos bAsicos sobre la Pre-
venci6n de Accidentes, si se le ha ensefiado que no es la forma correct si
no es la segura, si se le ha ensefiado a desarrollar un concept elevado de
si mismo, como asi tambini un sentido de responsabilidad para con los demis,
la industrial tendri bases firmes para desarrollar hAbitos y tcenicas de
seguridad especificos.
Pero el interns de la industrial por que se ensefie seguridad en las escuelas
va un poco mis alli de la seguridad de su trabajador. Este no existe como
un ente aislado. Tiene una familiar. Hijos que pueden sufrir accidents y en
consecuencia preocupar al trabajador que disminuirA su rendimiento. El
saber que sus nifios estan aprendiendo la forma segura de afrontar los
riesgos fisicos del diario vivir le darA mAs tranquilidad para trabajar con
seguridad y eficiencia.
Toda industrial interesada en aumentar su productividad y ganancias,
debe estar interesada en los programs de seguridad desarrollados por las
escuelas de su localidad.

Uso Obligatorio

De Cinturones

De Seguridad
El Consejo Nacional de Seguridad
de los Estados Unidos, organizacidn
que jug6 un important papel en la
aprobaci6n de leyes que obligan, a
los fabricantes a colocar cinturones
de seguridad en el asiento delantero
de los autom6viles, probablemente
lleve el asunto aun mds lejos tratando
de conseguir que el uso de los mismos
sea tambi6n obligatorio.
M. R. Darlington, Jr., president
de un comity especial sobre el uso de
cinturones de seguridad, ha decla-
rado que la resistencia de los con-
ductores a usarlos obligard a conside-
rar la posibilidad de apoyar tal ley,
pero al mismo tiempo el comitd tiene
reserves sobre tal recomendaci6n.
En la actualidad 33 Estados norte-
americanos requieren la instalacidn
de cinturones de seguridad en el
asiento delantero de los automdviles
La resistencia del pdblico a usar
los cinturones de seguridad es gran-
de, pero los experts consideran que
el cumplimiento de una ley como
dsta en condiciones adecuadas se
pone en vigencia por si sola.
