Vol. VI, No. 11 More Than 50 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, September 1, 1967

Governor's Labor Day Message
"On this 73d Labor Day employees of the Panama Canal
have every right to celebrate and to be proud of their
contributions to labor's vital role in the affairs and futures
of nations.
"Here, particularly, the combination of widely varied
skills into a true teamwork operation upholds the tradition
established by the courageous builders of the Canal.
"Serving the expanding needs of world commerce is a
challenge that, together, I am confident we can continue
to meet."


Balboa High Cafeteria

To Be Ready Next Fall

The Division of Schools has
announced plans for a cafeteria which
will provide hot lunches for the 1,500
or more boys and girls who attend
Balboa High School, will be in oper-
ation by the beginning of the 1968-69
school term.
The project will give Balboa High
School students a cafeteria and a
dining area where students can eat
their lunches as well as vending ma-
chines for sandwiches and cold food.
The work on transforming the base-
ment of the school into a cafeteria will
include construction of a kitchen,
installation of flooring and accoustical
ceilings, kitchen and dining area
equipment, and an air conditioning
and ventilation system.
The new cafeteria dining room
will be divided into sections and will
be large enough to accommodate
approximately 530 teachers and stu-
dents at a time. In order to take care
of all students, three lunch periods
will be scheduled.
Lunchroom facilities long have
been needed at Balboa High School.
At present, students eat lunch at
the Balboa Service Center, the Bal-
boa Teen Club, and various other
lunchrooms in the general area.
Work on the new lunchroom cafe-

teria will be done on contract and the
facilities should begin operation by
the time the school term begins
next fall.

Big Power Unit at Miraflores

"Down" for Inspection, Overhaul

The first annual inspection of the
22,000-kilowatt steam electric tur-
bine generator installed last year by
the Panama Canal at Miraflores was
drawing to a close this week.
In addition to the regular em-
ployees, many of whom worked over-
time on the project, Joseph Helber,
a representative of Westinghouse,
Inc., was present to oversee the
inspection and direct the overhaul.
The work on the various parts of
the big steam generating plant, which
began the first part of August, in-
cluded disassembly of various parts,

The Cicero "waterbabies," whose ages range from 4 years to 8, execute a joint plunge into the Los Rios swimming
pool. Mark Brian Cicero, 4, at right, who will attend nursery school at Fort Clayton this school year, was a mem-
ber of the preschool swim class and is the proud wearer of a "B" badge for swimming proficiency. He is
described as a "fish" and, since the Los Rios swimming pool opened in July, has spent as much time as he can
in the pool, often playing at the bottom of the pool. His brothers, James Carlton, 5, second from right, and Craig
Stephen, 7, second from left, also are "B" badge holders. The boys' oldest brother, Lawrence Joseph, 8, left, has
an "S" badge as an advanced swimmer. James will be in the first grade, Craig in the second grade and Lawrence
in the third grade at the Los Rios Elementary School. The boys are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph L. Cicero
of Quarters 6592-A, Corozal, and grandsons of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph J. Cicero of 6596-B, Corozal. Their father is
with the Panama Canal Maintenance Division and their grandfather is a lock guard. Three of the boys are ball

Will Assure

CFC's Goal
"Just 'check off' what you gave last
year. If you do, the Panama Canal
will achieve its goal in the 1967
Combined Federal Campaign."
This is the idea-and the symbol-
for this year's CFC appeal.
It's a check-mark, one of the oldest
and simplest of signs to identify or
indicate, yet it's as modern as the jet
set and possibly
the most widely
used symbol in
the world today.
In this year's
CFC campaign,
it will identify
the wearer as
one who has given his "fair share."
The attractive gold-color, plain
check-mark, measuring /4 inch along
the longer side and approximately
% inch on the shorter side, may be
worn as a tie tac, lapel button or just
a plain pin.
No matter how this check-mark is
used, it means that the wearer is a
member of the exclusive Fair Share
Club and has pledged to give his
"fair share" to this year's CFC drive
which benefits both the Canal Zone
United Fund and the International
Service Agencies.
The beauty of this year's Fair
Share emblem is lasting. The check-
mark with the golden glow may be
worn proudly during the CFC cam-
paign and long after as an object of
costume jewelry.
A listing of "Check-Mark Club"
members will be published in the
SPILLWAY during the campaign.


Travel Rule

Is Changed
U.S.-citizen employees entitled to
home-leave travel at Government ex-
pense now may be authorized travel
to an alternate location within the 50
States, the District of Columbia, or to
a U.S. Territory or Possession, or to
the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico,
regardless of their official U.S. home-
leave address.
This change is based on a recent
revision of Government travel regula-
tions, resulting from a ruling by the
Comptroller General of the United
However, any additional expense
involved in travel between the
Canal Zone and the alternate des-
tination in excess to that which
would have been allowed between
the Canal Zone and the official
home-leave residence must be
absorbed by the employee.
Formerly, in order to receive home-
leave benefits, employees had to re-
turn to a location within the 50 States
or the Territory or Possession in
which their official home-leave res-
idence was located. With the excep-
tion of transit travel, those employed
within the 50. States could not be
granted travel to a Territory or
Possession and employees from a Ter-
ritory or Possession could not be
granted home-leave travel to the
50 States.
In applying the new regulation, the
Canal organization policy of using the
SS Cristobal between the Isthmus
and the United States still is in effect.
For example: an employee who wishes
to go to Hawaii or Alaska will have
to travel to the United States on the
SS Cristobal.

Dog Mascot

Jumps Ship

... Literally
A small brown and white dog which
possibly was looking for a fire plug
on the center wall of Miraflores Locks
took a brief shore excursion one eve-
ning recently when the Norwegian
vessel Enduro was coming southbound
through the locks.
The ship was tied up briefly await-
ing transit. The level of the ship's
deck being even with the top of the
lock wall, it was only a short leap for
the ship's mascot to get ashore.
After that, the Locks Security
guard, the PanCanal pilot aboard the
Enduro, and the ship's steward all got
into the act. The steward was given
permission to come ashore to rescue
the wanderer.
By the time the steward had
retrieved the dog, the vessel had
moved into the next chamber and it
was necessary to put up a gangway
to get man and dog back aboard.
The pooch returned to the ship
without much protest. After all, the
Enduro has been his home for 9 years.

Watch the other guy!

novel of solid substance. It is the
story of two boys both sons of devout
Jewish fathers. The difference in the

friendship of the boys is brilliantly
and absorbingly told. Here is one

33 Enrolled

As Pink Girls

At Coco Solo

The 1967 Pink Girl (Civil Defense
Volunteer) program at Coco Solo
Hospital had 33 volunteers enrolled
during the 1967 school vacation. Since
this was too large a number of volun-
teer nurses aides for one program, the
students were placed in two groups.
The first group of 22 Pink Girls
participated in the program from
June 12 through July 22. The second
group began training July 17 and
completed work August 18.
The Pink Girls, who did hospital
volunteer work as Civil Defense
Nurses aides, were assigned to various
hospital areas in order to gain experi-
ence in many phases of the medical
In the group were identical twins,
Donna and Daryn Barger. After the
girls had worked in the hospital 6
weeks, people with whom they came
in contact still could not tell them
apart-except for the name tags they
During the course of training, a
field trip was held to Corozal Hos-
pital. The graduation ceremony will
be held after school opens.
The Coco Solo Hospital Pink Girls'
group is sponsored by the American
Legion Auxiliary, Elbert S. Waid
Unit No. 2, under the leadership of
the president, Mrs. Marion Hannberg
of Fort Gulick, and the chairman of
the program, Mrs. Louise Griffon.
Hospital training, which is a val-
iable part of the program, is given
through cooperation of Canal Zone
Health Bureau personnel. School
liaison is provided by teachers in Cris-
tobal High School and Mrs. Betty
Sutton, training nurse, Coco Solo
Hospital, was in charge of the training
at Coco Solo Hospital.

Move in on

'36 Reunion
When members of the Balboa High
School class of 1936 decided to have
a class reunion recently, they didn't
count on a mob scene. But everyone
got into the act and more than 60 who
had graduated from Balboa High in
the gay 30's and their spouses
attended a cocktail buffet supper
party in the Roosevelt Room of the
Tivoli Guest House.
The party was organized by
William Violette and Mrs. Virginia
Preston Wood, both of Balboa. It was
attended by not only Balboa alumni
who live in the Canal Zone, but a
number from the United States who
were visiting the Isthmus and several
who make their home in Panama.

drive the turbines' generator, was
cleaned and checked under the direc-
tion of Eugene Tis of Foster Wheeler
Co. of Livingston, N.J., the company
that installed it.
The steam turbine generating unit
was constructed and installed by
Westinghouse Electric Corp. of New
Orleans under a contract with the
Panama Canal. It works in conjunc-
tion with one of the two 10,000-

kilowatt gas turbines manufactured
in 1963 by Westinghouse at an
approximate cost of $1,500,000 each.
The first overhaul for the generator
and boiler units was scheduled for
the rainy season months while the
Gatun Hydroelectric station is in full
operation and the shutdown of the
Miraflores generator would not result
in overload of the Panama Canal
electrical power generating system.

Power Squadron

Announces New

Piloting Course

Nothing exceeds the pride of a
man for his new boat. The skipper
stands at the pier, admiring every
smooth, curving inch of hull, the
gleaming fittings, the neat lines.
Naturally he is anxious to pile his
family aboard and take them for that
exhilarating spin in the new boat.
However, there are many things every
skipper should know, especially new-
comers to the sport of boating, before
leaving the dock for the first time.
Such things include the equipment
required by law, common sense
equipment, anchoring, and a number
of other topics, all of which are taught
in the free piloting class offered by
units of the U.S. Power Squadrons.
Registration for the free course to
be conducted by the Canal Zone
Pacific Squadron, a unit of the U.S.
Power Squadrons, will begin at 7
p.m., Tuesday, September 5, at the
Panama Canal Training Center,
Corozo Street, Balboa Heights.
The piloting course, open to adult
men and women, runs for a period
of 13 weeks, 1 night a week. Owner-
ship of a boat is not necessary in order
to attend. This is an opportunity for
skippers and would-be skippers to
learn safe, happy boating through the
efforts of this organization dedicated
to safe boating through education.

A minimum coffee crop of 1.5
million bags is expected in El Salva-
lor for the upcoming coffee crop.

A. Dertein, USN, right.

Retiring Commodore's Score:

107 Transits of Panama Canal

Commodore Hamish N. Lawson,
master of the New Zealand Shipping
Co. vessel Rangitoto, received an
honorary Panama Canal pilot's license
and became an honorary member of
the Canal Zone Pilot's Association in
recent ceremonies.
Commodore Lawson, who has
made 107 transits of the Panama
Canal aboard vessels of the New Zea-
land Shipping Co., Ltd., a member
of the P & 0 group, will retire at the
end of the Rangitoto's present voyage
in September of this year. He has held
command for 20 years, and has had
a colorful career at sea since he
joined the New Zealand Shipping
Co. in 1926.
His first command was the ill-fated
Leicester, which was abandoned in
a hurricane in the North Atlantic in
September 1948. At the height of
the hurricane, Commodore Lawson
was washed overboard from the
bridge by a gigantic sea and was
carried back aboard by a second wave
which deposited him on the boat
deck, some 30 feet aft of the bridge.
When the ship was abandoned,
Commodore Lawson was the last man
to leave. After spending half an hour
in the sea, he was picked up by the
U.S.S. Tropero. The Leicester was
eventually salvaged and, at his own
request, Commodore Lawson resumed
The retiring master was in com-
mand of the Rakaia in October 1957,
when she sustained a major engine
breakdown in mid-Atlantic, with bad
weather preventing repair by ship's
engineers. In experiments of notable
resourcefulness, sails were rigged of
canvas awnings and hatch tarpaulins

to steady the ship's movements and
allow repair work.
Born in London in 1907, Com-
modore Lawson came to the New
Zealand Shipping Co. as a fourth offi-
cer from the Commonwealth &
Dominion Line. He was appointed to
command in 1948, after serving in
the Royal Naval Reserve throughout
World War II. He retired from the
Reserve with the rank of captain
in 1962.
Commodore Lawson is married and
lives at Curlew Crag, Crossthwaite,
Kendal, Westmorland.

asked an amateur located in another
community to relay a message to an
amateur he could not reach. This
began a hobby which is widely known
for its great accomplishments in pro-
viding emergency communications.
Radio amateurs have contributed
substantially to the development of

signals from the aurora and meteors.

Septiembre Sera el "Mes

De la Familia Cristiana"

Septiembre ha sido declarado
"Mes de la Familia Cristiana".
El tema de este mes sera "Sin
Familia No Hay Patria".
La organizaci6n de las acti-
vidades del Mes de la Familia
Cristiana correrA a cargo del
Movimiento Familiar Cristiano.
El Movimiento Familiar Cristiano
es una entidad de hombres y mujeres
que se dedican a llevar a los hogares
la ensefianza y la prAtctica de la reli-
gi6n mediante charlas informales en
el seno familiar. En esas charlas el
padre lleva siempre la voz principal.
Se piensa que al reunirse la familiar
para discutir temas de interns, se con-
siguen en primer lugar reuniones dec
familiar mAs frecuentes. Alli los hijos
aprenden a respetar el parecer de los
padres y, al intercambiar opinions
sobre asuntos que no tienen que ser
religiosos necesariamente, aumenta la
unidad de la familiar y todos sus
miembros obtienen mayor seguridad.
El Movimiento Familiar Cristiano
estA convencido de que la familiar es
la base de la sociedad, pues son las
families las que constituyen el nticleo
de los municipios, los cuales a su vez
integran el Gobierno provincial. Las

La pesca chilena de anchovetas al-
canz6 en 1966 la cifra sin precedent
de 1.080.000, lo que supone un
aumento del 156 por ciento con res-
pecto a 1965 (que se consider iun
rnal afio) y del 19 por ciento sore
1964. La producci6n de harina de
pescado correspondiente a los prime-
ros 11 meses de 1966 se elevd a
185.773 toneladas metricas, cantidad
miuy superior a la de todo el aio
1965, que fue de 54.125 toneladas
mdtricas, y a la de todo el aim 1964.
que fue de 146.767.

Provincias component la Naci6n. De
alli, el Movimiento deduce que si las
families estsn bien organizadas, la
Naci6n y la sociedad toda tendrAin que
estar bien organizadas.
AdemAs, el Movimiento Familiar
Cristiano espera lograr algo suma-
mente important para PanamA: que
haya mAs vocaciones sacerdotales.
"Panamai, con miAs de 1 mill6n de
habitantes, apenas cuenta con 100
sacerdotes", dicen los dirigentes del
Movimiento. Cada sacerdote tiene que
prestar servicios espirituales a mas de
10.000 personas, a veces diseninadas
en extensas regions del Interior. Los
dirigentes del Movimiento esperan
conseguir m'ts vocaciones sacerdotales
con las actividades del mes, pues para
lograr mayor n6mero de families cris-
tianas es indispensable contar con
muchos mas sacerdotes.
El Movimiento Familiar Cristiano,
al instar a los padres de familiar a
tomar parte en las actividades del
"Mes de la Familia Cristiana" espera
dar el impuls) initial para conseguir
mejores families, mas y mejores sacer-
dotes y una sociedad stable, firme y

El Perrito

Queria Darse

Su Paseito
Un perrito blanco con chocolate,
que posiblemente buscaba un hidran-
te bien colocado en la pared central
de las Esclusas de Miraflores, se dio
su paseadita en tierra una noche de
6stas, cuando el barco noruego
Enduro transitaba las esclusas hacia
el sur.
La nave estaba amarrada por corto
tiempo en espera de transitar las
esclusas. La cubierta de la nave estaba
a nivel con la pared de la esclusa y la
mascota del barco nada mAs tuvo que
dar un pequefio salto.
A partir de ese ese moment, se pusie-
ron en movimiento el guardian de la
Seguridad de las Esclusas, el practice
del Canal que iba al mando del barco
y el mayordomo de a bordo que
desembarc6 a buscar al animalito.
Para cuando el mayordomo pudo
agarrar al perrito, la nave habia
entrado en la cimara siguiente de la
esclusa y hubo necesidad de poner
una pasarela para que hombre y perro
subieran a bordo.
El perrito subi6 sin muchas pro-
testas. Despu6s de todo, el Enduro
ha sido su hogar durante los piltimos
9 afios.
