Going Into

2d Phase
Locks overhaul, now in progress
at Catun Locks, was to move into
the second phase this weekend with
the east lane being flooded to permit
the floating crane Hercules to enter
and replace miter gates Nos. 13 and
14 on which overhaul has been com-
According to tentative schedules,
the work of hanging the two gates
was to start today and be completed
Saturday. The Hercules then will
move out of the east lane and all over-
haul walk will be suspended Sunday
to permit use of that lane for smaller
ships needing no more than four
locomotives. Relay lockages will
continue in the west lane.
Present plans call for return of the
Hercules to the east lane Monday
and Tuesday when miter gates Nos.
5 and 6 will be removed and set on
keel blocks within the locks chambers
for overhaul. The east lane then will
be unwatered and other work in the
three east lane chambers continued.
Phase two is scheduled to con-
tinue until about February 22 when
the east lane again will be flooded
and the two locks gates replaced.
Overhaul work will then begin in
the west lane, when the process of
removing two locks gates for over-
haul and the unwatering of the
entire lane for other repair work will
be repeated. Before overhaul is com-
pleted late in April, eight of the 36
gates, four in the east lane and four
in the west lane of Gatun Locks, will
have been removed and repaired.
The vehicular crossing at Gatun
Locks will be closed to traffic Mon-
day and Tuesday, February 5 and 6,
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., to permit the
Hercules to enter the east lane and
remove two miter gates.
The crossing will not be closed
until 8 a.m. on Monday and Tues-
day so that early morning traffic will
be able to cross before official office
hours begin. The crossing will be
back in service before office closing
time in the afternoon so that there
will be as little inconvenience as
possible the afternoons of both days.

The "Blue Pacific," one of the largest and most modern tuna fishing boats
under the U.S. flag, snuggles alongside Pier 18 in Balboa with its sister ship,
the "Jeanette C" close to starboard,

Tuna Fishing Secret: You Need

More Than Sophisticated Gear

It takes a fish to find the fish. So
say the captain and crew of the
Blue Pacific, one of the newest and
best equipped tuna fishing boats
under the U.S. flag.
It's no fish story, they claim. But
despite all their sophisticated equip-
ment, they often hunt for tuna with
the help of porpoise, the personality
kids of the deep seas.
Capt. Roger Soares, youthful
owner and master of the Blue Pacific,
says that schools of tuna are known
to follow the porpoise because the
porpoise dive down several fathoms
and scare smaller bait fish up to the
So when the lookout on the tuna
boat spots birds and porpoise, mem-
bers of the crew take off in the small
outboard motorboats carried aboard
the vessel. The noise of the outboard

motor somehow attracts the porpoise
and they follow the small craft back
to the mother ship. The tuna swim
along behind and presto-right into
the big purse seine net.
After securing the catch, the fisher-
men let their pals-the porpoise-go
free and haul the tuna into the big
freezing tanks.
The 178-foot Blue Pacific, which
can carry 1,000 tons of tuna in her
16 fish wells, and her sister ship, the
Jeanette C, were the largest of the
fleet of U.S. tuna boats docked in
Balboa last week. The Blue Pacific
had returned here from Puerto Rico
after delivering a cargo of tuna. The
Jeanette C came in from San Diego
and is so new she is still to try her
Both boats were built the past year

550 More Get


Beth Boynton Darden, 12-year-
old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis
B. Darden of Balboa, received the
1,000th Certificate of U.S. Citizen-
ship issued in the Canal Zone by
United States immigration officials.
Examiners Andrew J. Carmichael,
Jr., William T. Jarmon, and Harold
J. Neubauer of the U.S. Immigration
and Naturalization Service, New
Orleans, conducted more than 550
citizenship hearings from January 22
to February 2 bringing the number
of citizenship certificates issued well
over the 1,000 mark since the first
certificate presented outside the
United States was issued here
December 9, 1966.
Certificate of Citizenship are
issued in the Canal Zone by the Im-
migration and Naturalization Service
of the Department of Justice under
authority of a law signed by the
President in November 1966.
Appointments for the hearings in
the Canal Zone are set up in New
Orleans. The date for the next hear-
ings here has not been set, this
depending on the number of applica-
tions made by Isthmian residents,
civilian, and military who wish to
obtain Certificates of Citizenship for
themselves or dependents. When a
sufficient number of applications
have been submitted and processed
by the New Orleans Office of the
U.S. Immigration and Naturalization
Service, the new hearings date will
be announced by Bruce G. Sanders,
Jr., Chief, Customs Division, and
administrator of the Canal Zone Cer-

New Schools

Up For Bids

This Month
Canal Zone school improvements
which will provide classrooms for
1,100 more students, will be started
this year and should be ready for use
by the fall term of 1969.
They include the construction of
an elementary school at Fort Kobbe
and the addition of a classroom build-
ing to the existing Curundu Junior
High School complex.
Bids on the new Fort Kobbe school
are to be opened at Balboa Heights
on or about February 15. Bids on the
other school project are scheduled for
opening on or about February 26.
Similar to the new elementary
school which opened last year at Fort
Gulick, the Fort Kobbe elementary
school will be a one-story masonry
structure with built-up roof. It will
house 19 regular classrooms, two
kindergarten rooms and two special
purpose rooms.
Plans also include a covered play
shelter, covered passages and a court
for special school and community
activities. It will accommodate ap-
proximately 650 pupils and will be
air conditioned throughout.
The air-conditioned classroom
building addition td the Curundu
Junior High School has been de-
signed to increase the school's
capacity by about 450 students. The
one-story building will have eight
regular classrooms, two science lab-
oratories, a vocal and an instrumental
room and private practice rooms. The
work also includes the conversion of
a room in existing Building A into a
home economics classroom, construc-
tion of a chilled water plant building
and covered passageways.


February 2, 1968


Skull Session: Capt. Irving Hay, a senior Panama Canal Pilot, far right, giving one of a series of lectures with
a group of apprentice Canal pilots. The lectures are in conjunction with the on-the-job training program and are
planned to give a more comprehensive understanding of the technicalities of ship handling in Canal Zone waters.
From left are Capt. Robert G. Dionisopoulos, Capt. J. A. Long, Capt. Maarten P. Mooldijk, Capt. Thomas W.
Wright, Capt. Thomas W. McGraw, and Capt. Earl C. Shrader. Captain Hay, who had been an outstanding
Panama Canal pilot since 1945, died Wednesday. He had retired 2 months ago, but-had been retained on full
active service.


She Missed a "Hello Darling" to G. B. Shaw

"My memories of Panama would
fill a book and I have only one regret
-that I wish I had said 'hello darling'
to George Bernard Shaw when he
tried to flirt with me from the deck
of his ship passing through Gatun
Locks. I'm sure his reply would have
gone down in history," writes Mrs.
Hallie Connally Turberville, a Canal
Zone oldtimer who is now living in
Milton, N.C.
Instead she blushed, turned to the
lockmaster and said something like
"vain old fool"-and that was the

end of the opportunity of a lifetime.
Mrs. Turberville was referring to
an incident before World War II
when the famous Irish playwright
made one of his trips through the
Canal aboard a transiting vessel.
Her observation was part of a
letter written to John F. Manning,
General Manager of the Panama
Canal Supply Division, thanking him
for the annual Panama Canal calen-
dar. The calendars are sent to many
Canal oldtimers, most of whom

still have a soft spot in their hearts
for the Isthmus, get a severe case of
nostalgia each year when they get
their Panama Canal calendars. Usu-
ally they write the Supply Division
and tell the manager about it.
"The yearly PanCanal Christmas
calendar brings back memories of the
good old days, some bad, some good,
but all a treasure chest of the best
part of our lives. Our hearts and
memories are still down there at
Home," writes E. J. Scrueger of
Brownsville, Tex.
A. L. Fessler, now employed by
the Auto Crane Co. of Tulsa, Okla.,
said that this year's calendar reached
him November 14, 61 years from the
date he started working for the Isth-
mian Canal Commission. Since retire-
ment from the Canal in 1942, he
worked for the Cabot Co. in Tulsa,
retiring in 1967. He said he is still
working, "since it is more pleasant
than day dreaming in a rocking
The calendar "brings back many
happy memories of my associations in
the Canal Zone, said George C. Gade,
formerly of Gorgas Hospital, who is
living in Levittown, Pa. "The pic-
ture of the Melodic shows extensive
improvements in a program begun
several years ago."
"Nice to hear from our old home
grounds. We lived there a long time
and still miss it," said Dr. and Mrs.
H. K. Tuttle, of California. Dr. Tuttle
was formerly Chief of the Gorgas
Hospital Surgical Service.
"The calendar recalls memories of
some of the early construction days
along the old PRR line, especially
Empire, my first assignment," said
L. Oliver of Marion, Ill. "My family
and I were assigned quarters on the
hill where small rock chattered down
on our roof each evening-shooting
time in the Cut."
Also heard from this year was Mrs.
Ann W. De La Mater, mother of
William De La Mater of the Execu-
tive Planning Staff. From Greenville,
N.C., she wrote that the calendar was
of great interest since there were not
many retired employees in that area
and so it was good to have contact
in other ways.
This year the calendar had a pic-
ture of the super bulk carrier Melo-
dic in Miraflores Locks. The accom-
panying letter described the ship and
told of Canal improvements and
increased traffic.

Los Rios Youth

Wins Top Honors

On Rifle Range

Dana Ferry has been awarded
the Distinguished Expert Rifleman
Award for 22 caliber rifle on the 50-
foot course, the highest award given
by National Rifle Association for this
course of fire.
Dana, who is only 14 years of age,
started shooting with the Junior Di-
vision of the Balboa Gun Club in
January 1966 when he was only 12
years old. By May 1966 he had won
the Expert Rifleman Award and
since that time has been working
toward the Distinguished Expert
To qualify for Distinguished Ex-
pert it is necessary to shoot ten 5-bull
targets in each of four positions-
prone, sitting, kneeling, and stand-
ing. The difficult part is that each
bull of the 5-bull targets must have
a minimum score in two shots as
follows: Prone and sitting-18; kneel-
ing and standing-16.
If the score of any one of the
5-bulls is less, the entire target is
disqualified. All targets must be
witnessed by a member of the NRA
and then sent to NRA for verification.
Dana lives in Los Rios and his
father is the head of the Sheetmetal
Shop of the Pacific District of the
Maintenance Division. Dana is cur-
rently working for the Distinguished
Expert Award on the 50-yard course.

Selective Service:

Student Deferments
(A number of questions are being
asked about student deferments under
the new draft law and related regula-
tions. The following explanations have
been provided by the Canal Zone Selec-
tive Service Headquarters in the form of
answers to the most frequent queries.)
Q. Will a student-registrant be
drafted in mid-course if he fails to
progress satisfactorily under the
established definition (question 3.)?
A. A student-registrant satisfac-
torily pursuing a full-time course may
be ordered for induction if he fails to
meet the established progress require-
ments for a degree; however, in such
case, he will be temporarily deferred
in Class I-S(C) until the end of his
academic year, or until he ceases to
pursue such course satisfactorily, or
until he reaches age 24, whichever
occurs first.

Hello dere . .
Bob Best is a new face around the
Balboa Post Office these days ..
We understand that Tony Suescunr
has a real wild pad over on the At-

am I?) . Did you know that the
tallest peak in Latin America is

That's all for this week. Contribu-
tions for the column are appreciated
and should be sent to "It's No
Secret," Box M, Balboa Heights,
Canal Zone. We would like to hear
of events and incidents of interest,
and other tidbits. So, until next week,
remember the old saying: "Every-
body talks about the weather, but
nobody does anything about it!"

Alternate Capt. Harvey Wells, who is also the navigator of the "Blue Pacific,"
studies the log book during a free moment while the ship is in port. Some
of the complicated communication equipment used on the tuna boat is seen
on and above the desk. Wells has a 5 percent share in the "Blue Pacific."

Tuna Fishing

by the Tacoma Boat Building Co.,
at Tacoma, Washington, at a cost of
$1% million each. Both are privately
owned, but the owners have con-
tracted to sell their catch to the Van
Camp Co., which has processing
plants in Puerto Rico and San Diego.
The two sleek vessels look more
like yachts than fishing boats, with
spanking white engine rooms and
freshly painted decks. Most cabins
are air conditioned and the galleys are
a housewife's dream. The ships carry
120,000 gallons of diesel fuel, enough
for a 2-month fishing cruise, and
34,000 gallons of fresh water. There
are no salt water showers nor other
such hardships for the crews on these
Captain Soares has acquired his
tuna fishing know-how through long
family association with the business.
His father, Joe Soares, now retired
and living in San Diego, was the
owner of several tuna fishing boats.
He financed his son Roger and at
present is financing another boat for
his son Steve. This boat, now being
built at the Mortinac Boat Works in
Seattle, will be slightly smaller than
the Blue Pacific.
The Blue Pacific and the Jeanette C
are two of four sister tuna seiner
vessels constructed by Tacoma Boat.
The third of the series is the Bold
Venture, which was launched in Jan-
uary and the fourth, the City of
Panama, went into the water shortly

Sea Level Canal

Support Division

Phaseout Begun

Inability to obtain additional funds
will affect a number of employees of
the Sea Level Canal Support Divi-
sion. A phaseout is now in progress,
initial action having taken place
January 27.
Work on Route 17 (Panama) has
been discontinued; geology, meteor-
ology and hydrology operations are
still in progress at Route 25 in
Approximately 60 civilian positions
on the rolls of the Sea Level Canal
Support Division will be abolished,
involving 130 personnel actions.
Forty-eight employees already have
received notices. Subsequent notices
will be sent out to employees in the
division as the phaseout progresses.
Approximately 80 employees in-
volved in personnel actions will re-
turn to their former positions in Pan-
ama Canal units, held prior to their
assignments in the Sea Level Canal
Support Division.
Of the 20 employees who were
given local career or career-condi-
tioned appointments, seven already
have been assigned to current vacan-
cies in the Canal organization. The
remaining 13 employees will be
given every assistance possible in
locating employment in the organi-

ployed on Term or Temporary
appointments and designated to be
phased out also will be given every

(Continued from p. 1)
Support and cooperation of pa-
tients, it is felt, will reduce problem
areas to a minimum, improving
patient service and making maximum
effective use of hospital facilities
from the standpoints of space, effec-
tiveness and economy, as well as
employee utilization.
Non emergency patients who
arrive at a hospital, it is felt, could
reasonably expect to experience some
inconvenience, depending on the
amount of time doctors have left
between appointments. This varies
with each patient. Every doctor's time
in the Outpatient Clinic is normally
reserved for the entire day.
Size of the problem is highlighted
by the fact that in the past fiscal year
more than 237,000 Outpatient Clinic
patients received attention on the
Pacific side of the Isthmus and
another 114,000-plus on the Atlantic
Certain patients must be seen first,
especially emergencies. These neces-
sary interruptions cannot be avoided.
Too, certain types of non-emergency
cases by their very nature warrant
priority over relatively minor ail-
Further details on plans for the
all-appointment system for Gorgas
Hospital and how it can be made
most effective will be outlined in
future issues of the SPILLWAY.

(Continued from p. 1)

Application forms, information and
assistance in the preparation of the
forms may be obtained from Mrs.
Lois Thomas in the Customs Division
office in the Terminal Building,
Balboa. Her telephone number is
Balboa 4202 and her office hours are
7 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
Atlantic side residents who wish
to file applications for future oitizen-
ship hearings may obtain application
forms from the Cristobal Customs
office. Completed applications may
be submitted to the Cristobal Cus-
toms office or may be mailed to the
Chief of the Customs Division,
Box 2018, Balboa, C.Z.
Completed applications, support-
ing documents, photographs, and a
$5 fee in the form of a Canal Zone
postal money order are submitted to
the local Certificate of Citizenship
Assistance Office. From here they
are forwarded to the New Orleans
office of U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization for processing. When
the number of applications warrants
the return of the examiners to the
Isthmus, a date for new hearings
will be set.

Manipulaci6n Correcta de Sacos

Con much frecuencia los trabaja-
dores se ven precisados a cargar ob-
jetos pesados, ya sea para trasladar-
los de un lugar a otro o para levan-
tarlos del piso y colocarlos en un
nivel mas alto. A veces son cajas,
otras tambores y en muchas ocasio-
nes se trata de sacos, ya que una
gran cantidad de products se enva-.
san en esta forma.
Una de cuatro lesiones de trabajo
son causadas manipulando materia-
les. La cifra nos indica claramente
que la operaci6n, por simple que pa-
rezca, ofrece sus riesgos y que si no
se ejecuta debidamente puede oca-
sionar lesiones leves y tambikn acci-
dentes muy series. Las manos, los
pies y la column vertebral son las
parties del cuerpo mis expuestas en
el process de manipulaci6n de una
No olvidemos el dicho popular de
"mais vale mafia que fuerza". No cabe
duda de que con habilidad y des-

treza podemos lograr mejores resul-
tados. Aquellos que creen que con
la fuerza bruta y olvidando la segu-
ridad, acaban mAs pronto y obtienen
mayores beneficios, con frecuencia
descubren que lo lnmico que logran
es una lesi6n tras la otra.
En el caso. especifico de la mani-
pulaci6n de sacos, el riesgo a los pies
y las manos se reduce notablemente
ya que el saco no tiene contornos
agudos y generalmente envuelve ma-
terial blando. La column vertebral
es la mAs expuesta y tambien hay el
peligro de que al colocar varies sacos,
unos sobre otros, si no quedan bien
puestos, puedan caer sobre el traba-
iador con consecuencias funestas.
Para levantar un saco double las

En el Hospital Gorgas Solo Atenderan...

(Viqne de la pdgina 1)
brinden los beneficiary a ellos
Durante cierto nfmnero de afios, los
pacientes del dispensario eran trata-
dos a media que iban llegando.
Luego, a pedido de los representan-
tes de los Consejos Civicos, el siste-
ma fue cambiado al de citas con el
fin de que los pacientes pudieran ser
vistos y atendidos dentro de un pe-
riodo razonable de tiempo, de acuer-
do con la naturaleza de atenci6n
En realidad, el sistema de citas ha
continuado en efecto, pero un nime-
ro creciente de excepciones-cuyo
actual nunero se aproxima a la mitad
de los pacientes del Dispensario-ha
convertido el problema en algo serio.
Se consider que una complete
cooperaci6n en el sistema de citas
reducira el tiempo de espera a no
mas de 1 hora.
La causa mayor de que las esperas
se hayan alargado hasta varias horas,
es que los casos que llegan sin cita
se presentan todos alrededor de las
8 a.m. y la 1 p.m. y no en base
El nuevo sistema no afectarA las
clinics especializadas pues todas
ellas trabajan con el sistema de citas.
Los casos de emergencia seguiran
siendo atendidos a media que se
presented las emergencies.
Se consider que la cooperaci6n y
ayuda de los pacientes reducirA los

problems a un minimo, mejorando
el servicio que se presta a los pa-
cientes y Ilevando al mAximo el uso
efectivo de las instalaciones hospi-
talarias, desde el punto de vista del
espacio, la efectividad y la econo-
mia, ademas de la efectiva utilizaci6n
de los empleados.
Los pacientes que leguen al hos-
pital no en emergencia podrAn espe-
rar tener algin inconvenient, de
acuerdo con el tiempo que los medi-
cos tengan disponible entire citas.
Ello varia con cada paciente. El
tiempo de los m6dicos en el Dispen-
sario esta reservado, normalmente,
para todo el dia.
La magnitude del problema es se-
fialada por el hecho de que durante
el afio fiscal pasado recibieron aten-
ci6n en el Dispensario mAs de
237.000 pacientes, s6lo en el sector
Pacifico, mientras que en el AtlAntico
fueron atendidos mAs de 114.000.
Ciertos pacientes deberAn ser
atendidos primero, especialmente los
de emergencies. Estas interrupcio-
nes necesarias no pueden evitarse.
AdemAs, ciertos tipos de cases, que
no son de emergencia, su misma na-
turaleza les da prioridad sobre otros
menos graves.
Mayores detalles sobre el sistema
totalmente a base de citas para el
Hospital Gorgas y sobre c6mo podra
hacersele efectivo al mAximo seran
publicados en ediciones futuras del

En la Pesca Siempre Hay

Algo Nuevo que Aprender

Los buenos pescadores saben que
para pescar se necesita otro pescado
de sefiuelo.
Fue lo primero que nos dijo el ca-
pitan del Blue Pacific, uno de los me-
jores y mas modernos atuneros
de los Estados Unidos. Su tripulaci6n
estuvo completamente de acuerdo.
No es ning6n cuento de pescado-
res, aseguran ellos. Pues, a pesar del
modernisimo equipo de pesca con
que cuentan, muchas veces se ven
forzados a buscar el atin con la ayu-
da de marsopas, que son las perso-
nalidades de las grandes profundi-
El CapitAn Roger Soares, joven
duefio del Blue Pacific, quien es ade-
mis su capitan, asegura que los ban-
cos de at6n siguen a las marsopas,

donde asustan a los peces mis peque-

fios, haci6ndolos subir a la superficie.
Asi que cuando el vigia del atune-
ro alcanza a ver pAjaros y marsopas,
los miembros de la tripulaci6n salen
en los pequefios botes con motor
fuera de borda del atunero. El ruido
del motor fuera de borda, de alguna
manera, atrae a las marsopas que
siguen a los pequefios botes hasta el
atunero. Los atunes siguen a las mar-
sopas y, quedan dentro de la gran
red que arrastra el atunero.
Luego de asegurarse de su pesca,
los hombres del atunero dejan ir a
sus amigas-las marsopas-y echan el
at6n en los grandes tanques frigo-
El Blue Pacific, de 178 pies de
largo, capaz de cargar 1.000 tonela-
das de atni, y el Jeanette C, su ge-
melo, son los mis grandes de todos
los atuneros estadounidenses que
amarraron en Balboa la semana pa-
sada. El Blue Pacific lleg6 de regreso
de Puerto Rico, a donde habia ido a
descargar atin. El Jeanette C, lleg6
desde San Diego y todavia tiene que
probar suerte.
Ambos atuneros fueron construi-
dos el afio pasado por la Tacoma
Boat Building Co., de Tacoma, Esta-
do de Washington, a un cost de

$1.5 millones cada uno. De propie-
dad privada ambos, han finnado con-
trato para vender lo que pesquen a
la Cia. Van Camp, que posee sus
plants procesadoras en Puerto Rico
y en San Diego, California.
Las dos esbeltas embarcaciones
semejan mas bien yates de lujo que
buques de pesca, con sus blancos
cuartos de maquinas y sus cubiertas
relucientes. La mayoria de los cama-
rotes a bordo tienen aire acondicio-
nado y las cocinas serian el suefio de
un ama de casa. Llevan 120.000 ga-
lones de aceite diesel, lo suficiente
para navegar durante 2 meses, y
34.000 galones de agua potable. Los
bafios son con agua dulce y los tri-
pulantes gozan de comodidades raras
en buques de esa clase.
El CapitAn Soares ha adquirido
una gran experiencia en la pesca del

que se han dedicado su familiar por
El Blue Pacific y el Jeanette C son
dos de cuatro atuneros gemelos que
