Shipping Industry

Changes Studied

Significant developments which
may affect the operations and plans
of the Panama Canal are occurring
in the shipping industry throughout
the world, the chairman of the Vessel
Limitations Panel of the current
Canal improvement studies found
following a fact-gathering trip around
the world.
This panel, headed by Hugh A.
Norris, Panama Canal Economist, is
one of five panels appointed by Cov.
W. P. Leber in September to make
Canal improvement studies on ways
to achieve ultimate Canal capacity.
In bulk carriers, two events are
taking place which should reduce the
number of new ships being built to
use the Panama Canal at its maxi-
mum limit. The first is the recent
change in the load line convention
which generally will allow bulk
carriers to carry about 10 percent
more cargo by increasing their
drafts. Under certain conditions, the
largest ships now using the Canal
will find it more economical to use
alternate routes.
The second change is the develop-
ment of two new families of bulk
carriers which will be too large to
transit the Canal. The first are the
bulk/oil carriers of 90,000 to
100,000 deadweight tons which can
haul coal from Hampton Roads to
Japan around Africa and backhaul
crude oil from the Middle East to
Europe or the United States.
Another type being planned is an
ore/bulk/oil carrier of 125,000 to
140,000 deadweight tons that will
leave Hampton Roads with the maxi-
mum load of coal and stop by Brazil,
Liberia, or Nigeria and top off with
iron ore, then proceed to Japan
around Africa. These ships can back-
haul Middle East oil or iron ore from
Australia to Europe.
Another change is the growing use
of container ships for general cargo.
One container ship can replace from
three to six conventional cargo ships,
depending on length of the route,
and spend only 10 percent of its time
in port, compared to 50 percent for
a conventional cargo ship.
The container ships now being
designed in England for delivery in
1969 will be relatively large ships
of 20,000 to 23,000 deadweight
tons, with beams of 100 to 105 feet
and a capacity of 1,200 containers.
Draft will be no problem as they
will draw only 35 feet of water.

',-- *I'v

The next generation of container
ships, some 15 years off, will
probably exceed the limits of the
Canal as they will have beams of
120 feet and drafts of 41 to 42 feet.
The panel feels that in the next
few years there will be increasing
pressure to reduce time that ships
spend in Canal waters since speed is
essential to the container operator.
Although evaluation has not been
completed on the data collected
during the visit to more than 75
shipping companies, research orga-
nizations, shipyards, trade associa-
tions, and Government agencies
around the world, the panel has some
bases for planning. Through the
contacts made, the Canal can keep
abreast of developments which will
affect Canal operation in the future.

Anchors Aweigh!

And Bill Bailey

Heads for Home
When a man works with ships all
day, and when his home is a sailboat,
eventually he'll haul in the anchor
and set sail for new horizons. That's
exactly what William R. Bailey, a
Panama Canal Marine Traffic Con-
troller, did. He resigned his Canal
position and with a merry wave to
landlubber well-wishers set his course
for California.
For the past 2 years, Bailey has
lived aboard his cruising auxiliary
sailboat, cutter rig, Contigo. He
purchased the vessel 5 years ago and
rebuilt it completely. The 30-foot
vessel, with light green hull, was
docked at the Pedro Miguel Boat
Then came the urge to travel. He
resigned as a Marine Traffic Con-
troller after 10 years' Canal service
that started as a signalman, and
acquired a crew member, Sp5 Jerry
E. Lucky. The latter had just re-
ceived an honorable discharge from
the U.S. Army, after serving at Fort
Skipper Bailey's course will take
him to San Diego, Calif., where he
plans to continue living on the Con-
tigo while attending the Electronic
Technical Institute, where he will
major as an electronics engineer.
Crew member Lucky's plans are a
bit indefinite, but he plans to remain

presented them the certificates, proof of U.S. citizenship. Beth had the distinction of being the recipient of
the 1,000th Certificate of U.S. Citizenship issued here. The first such certificate granted outside the United States,
was issued in the Canal Zone in December 1966. Examiners from the Immigration and Naturalization Service
at New Orleans, Andrew J. Carmichael, Jr. (seated), William T. Jarmon, and Harold J. Neubauer, at right,
have conducted the Canal Zone hearings and had issued 1,200 Certificates of U.S. Citizenship at the close of
the hearings last week.

Leash Law Urged To Control Pets

A request for a leash law to con-
trol pets, particularly dogs, drew
considerable discussion at the year's
first U.S. Civic Council Executive
The matter was brought up by
Dr. Teodoro Arias, representing
Ancon-Balboa Heights, who read a
written request for a leash law to
protect the public from nuisances
and health and safety hazards
created by some pets. Dr. Arias said
there have been numerous cases of
Canal Zone persons being bitten by
dogs recently, twice resulting in
children being maimed.
In instances where a dog which
bites someone is not located, the
victim must undergo an extremely
painful series of treatments to
prevent rabies, Dr. Arias pointed out.
Also, he noted, pets permitted to
roam frequently return with ticks
and other insects. A leash law
would require Canal Zone residents
to keep their pets on leashes when
leaving their masters' residences.
Gov. W. P. Leber, presiding over
the session, said he personally favor
control of pets, but stressed that
there should be no such restriction
without the full support of the

majority of the people. It would be
unenforceable and useless to pass
such a law otherwise, he added.
More specific facts are needed
before calling for a vote or any other
means of determining the public's
reaction. Feelings can run high con-
cerning leash laws, Governor Leber
stated, and for that reason accurate
information should be gathered
before any action is taken.
The Governor opened the meet-
ing by discussing recent visits by
officials from Washington and by
members of the Canal organization's
Board of Directors. Some of them
were taken to Gatun Locks to see
the work being carried on as part of
the locks overhaul project. Governor
Leber said he encourages such visits
to the Canal so that those who come
can be briefed on Canal operations.
Most of the visitors have been highly
complimentary of the work being
done here, the Governor said.
Mrs. Darleen Ashby, president of
the Pacific Civic Council, asked for
the passage of a regulation requiring
motorcyclists to wear helmets. Dr.
Arias pointed out chances of serious
injuries to cyclists involved in acci-
dents are minimized by the use of
helmets. The Republic of Panama
is considering passing a law to make
the helmets mandatory and might
enact such a law if Canal Zone
authorities also do so, according to
Dr. Arias.
A shortage of parking places in
numerous locations in the Canal Zone
was mentioned by Civic Council offi-
cers and representatives. Dr. Arias
said some of the parking spaces at

suggested that removal of a few

complex would provide a few more

Mrs. Doris Saunders, president
of the Cristobal-Margarita-Brazos
Heights Civic Council, said re-
arrangements of some parking spaces
at the Margarita Service Center
would reduce some of the driving
required getting around the parking
lot. Mrs. Saunders asked that the
30-minute parking spaces be moved
nearer the train area at the Mount
Hope train station.

Tuesday Nights

The Canal Zone Observatory,
located near Miraflores Locks, which
is opened to the public each year by
the Canal Zone Schools Division, will
be open to the public from 7 to 9
p.m. each Sunday and Tuesday for
the remainder of the dry season.
The winter constellations are now
visible in all their brilliance in the
clear skies characteristic of this time
of year. Low in the west after sunset
the planet Mars shines with a steady
reddish glow. Higher in the western
sky the large planet Saturn with its
famous rings may be seen. Later in
the evening, rising in the east, the
largest planet, Jupiter, with its four
moons is visible.
Constellations now visible in the
evening include Orion, Gemini, Canis
Major, and Auriga, which are among
the most beautiful of the constella-
tions. Some of the bright stars are
Sirius, Canopus, Capella, Betelgeuse,
Rigel, and Procyon.

Journey Through a Haunted Land
is an account of today's West and
East Germany by a young Israeli
journalist, Amos Elon. Dispassionate
and reflective, he describes Cologne,
Munich, Dresden, and both Berlins,
the politics of Bonn, the new indus-
trialists, and the universities. There
also is a careful appraisal of the work
of West Germany's new writers.
Rather somber in tone, this is a fas-

Victoria Lincoln has written several
best-selling novels, but her new book,
A Private Disgrace, is not a novel. It
is a retelling of a famous crime and
trial, the Lizzie Borden case. Miss
Lincoln is a native of Fall River,
Mass. As a child she lived just up the
street from the Bordens and knew
Lizzie personally. Familiar with the
setting, the townspeople, the local
gossip, the author gives a definitive
answer to the perenially fascinating
question, "Did she or didn't she?"

from the old French Canal into the
prism of the new canal at the north
end of the Gatun lock site and made
a cut through the old line of the Pan-

biography, Wiv a Little Bit of Luck.
Nearly 50 years of stage experience,
from music halls to Shakespeare, were

great enjoyment the experiences of

from Gracie Fields to the Beatles have
been his friends and the worlds of
the stage in England and America

A suspension bridge over Culebra

bridge to be constructed across the

compressed air and water mains over
the Cut.

"Let's see, now. Do I have everything?" Skipper William R. Bailey mused as he sat on the deck of his cruising
auxiliary sailboat, "Contigo," surrounded by provisions as he thumbed through a mail order catalog just before he
sailed for new horizons.

Destination: California, in 3 or 4 Months

(Continued from p. 1)
on the west coast of the United
The voyage from the Isthmus of
Panama to California will take about
3 to 4 months, for they are scheduling
stops wherever possible all along the
The Contigo carries a full comple-
ment of sails, but weather conditions
this time of year may prevent sails
being used to great extent, especially
for a voyage up coast.
Bailey is a ham radio operator and
has amateur radio equipment aboard.
Throughout the voyage, he hopes to
maintain radio contact with fellow
radio hams in the Canal Zone and
Stateside, as well as any who may
contact him at KZ5RU in the course
of the journey.
The Contigo is well stocked with
items that may be difficult to obtain
on the voyage, and also carries a
good supply of fuel and water, Bailey
said. There's an electric deep freeze
that runs off the engine, and a cer-
tain amount of frozen food is stocked.
"I'm keeping my fingers crossed
that the deep freeze will keep run-
ning," he said. "But, in case of a
failure and as security, we have
plenty of canned food on board."
The vessel is air conditioned on
board for shoreside current. Air con-
ditioning, the skipper pointed out, is
not a luxury but a necessity-to keep
things dry.
Bailey was born in Colon, attended
Canal Zone schools in Cristobal and
Balboa, and was graduated from

Balboa High School in 1954. His
father, William C. Bailey, recently
retired from the Canal Zone Postal
Division. His mother, Mrs. Ellen
Johnson, is a member of the office
staff at the Los Rios Elementary

How did he happen to choose a
boat for a home? It all came about
naturally. "I was raised around boats
all my life. I had several friends who
lived on boats, and above all it's less
expensive than paying rent on land,"
he said.

Skipper William R. Bailey of the "Contigo" charts the course his 30-foot

animal had apparently crawled under

Ky., and was raised to Master Mason
and is a member of Olympia Lodge
in Chicago. He was Potentate of
Chicago's Medinah Temple in 1956
and has served as an international
officer of the Shrine for 10 years. He
received one of the highest honors
of Masonry when he was Coroneted
a 33 A.A.S.R. Mason, Northern

Director, Marine Bureau, president of the Canal Zone Society of Professional
Engineers, and at left, Maj. Peter Brindley, project engineer for the Canal
widening project, who is chairman for the Engineers' Week activities. Citing
the Panama Canal as "long recognized as one of the modern engineering
wonders of the world," and an achievement representative of the contribu-
tions made by engineers' practical applications of scientific knowledge,
Governor Leber's proclamation invites all residents of the Canal Zone
particularly to join in "paying tribute to those men who . have become
the pioneers of today and whose creative efforts, past and present, are
evident in all phases of our modern life."


Cooperation Is Key to Success

Plans have been announced to put

Vaus, who quit crime to work with
youth in New York's slums, is the
founder of Youth Development, Inc.
(YDI), which operates from behind
a boarded-up store front on Second
Avenue. He is far from the popular
conception of a "youth worker" for
he'd been in plenty of trouble
As a young man, he was expelled
from the Bible Institute of Los
Angeles for stealing. He was asked
to leave college. He was sentenced
to the county jail for armed robbery
in Beverly Hills. In World War II,
as an Army captain, he was court-
martialed for helping himself to
Government property, and was sen-
tenced to 5 years in Federal prison.
He was later exonerated and restored
to active duty.
In the Army he became an elec-
tronics expert and after the war set
up shop as a freelance wiretapper in
Los Angeles. In November 1949,
when he was about to deliver to the
Mickey Cohen crime syndicate a
device to intercept and delay tele-
typed results of horse races-to
enable bookmakers in St. Louis to
place bets on the winners-he heard
Billy Graham preach. His wife had
persuaded him to attend a crusade
Billy Graham was conducting.
Vaus' first act was to admit he
had been stealing equipment from
the telephone company, from a radio
station, and from other firms for
which he'd worked. He set out to
make restitution of more than
For the next 10 years he was an
itinerant evangelist, and then began
work with the teenage delinquents in

ment, Inc., was born.

preference, tell the clinic clerk and,
if possible, she will give you an
appointment either at the preferred
time or as close to it as possible,
depending on the number of vacant
When you cannot keep an appoint-
When something comes up and
you know that you will be unable
to keep your scheduled appointment,
please call 2-6454 or 2-6369 and let
the clinic clerk know. Failure to
cancel an appointment, so that it may
be used by someone else, may
deprive someone else of earlier med-
ical care. For cancellations, if pos-
sible, call at least 24 hours in advance,
regardless of whether it is a first visit
or a return visit.
In keeping your appointment you
should try to arrive approximately
10 to 20 minutes in advance of the
scheduled time so that the clinic
clerk knows you are waiting and
can get your record out.
If you are late for your appoint-
ment and have not notified the clinic
clerk in advance, you may not be
seen except for a true emergency
or after considerable delay. It is
obviously unfair to penalize others
who have arrived on time by delay-
ing their appointments so that you
can have yours-late.
Clinic hours are between 8 a.m.
and 5 p.m. Appointments are made
between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday
through Fridays so that other cases
may be seen by 5 p.m. Monday and
the day following a holiday are non-
appointment days. On those days
patients are seen in the order in
which they arrive, except for emer-
gencies. It should be emphasized
again that true emergencies are seen
at any time.
Any weekday after 5 p.m. or on
holidays or weekends, only emer-
gency treatment is available. You
will be seen by a doctor in all cases
and any drugs given will be sufficient
only to last until the next regular
work day. Those coming in with
minor illnesses that might have
waited until the following day may
have to wait until those requiring
true "emergency" assistance, or
those more seriously ill, have been
cared for.

The International Circle of Friends
will act as sponsor of the Dale Car-
negie Course in the Canal Zone, it
has been announced by Louis de
Armas, president of the organization.

Civic Council
(Continued from p. 1)
Mrs. Saunders said she was in-
formed that no items in the com-
missary should be priced above the
Fair Trade prices but that sometimes
they are. She asked if there is any
more efficient way to correct or to
prevent posting these incorrect prices
other than to have the purchaser
point out the discrepancy. Mrs.
Saunders stated that Canal Zone res-
idents are penalized by not being
able to profit from sales specials
offered in U.S. stores but not in the
commissaries. The Governor ex-
plained that the prices here are not
taken from the special sale prices
but from the National Food chain
Mrs. Majel Reinheimer, 1st vice
president of the Cristobal-Margarita-
Brazos Heights Civic Council, dis-
cussed community beautification at
the Cristobal pier, which she said
is much more attractive than the
typical waterfront. This situation is
deteriorating now, however, she
said, because some of the palms are
being removed to make room for
containers of private companies
operating in the area. She asked the
beauty of the area be restored and
Mrs. Ashby asked if the designated
reserved parking spaces at the en-
trance to the Balboa Commissary
could be shifted further away, nearer
to Balboa Stadium, so that retail
store patrons could use those nearer
to the commissary building.
Governor Leber announced the
results of the polling of communi-
ties on the choice of retail store
hours. Voting was light in most
areas, with a total of 1,539 ballots
cast. Approximately 65 percent
favored the proposed change with
Paraiso-Pedro Miguel being the only
community opposing the new hours.
The Governor reported that an
investigation following a request for
a set of steps at the end of Fourth
Street in Margarita revealed the steps
are justified. The work, suggested by
Mrs. Reinheimer, 1st vice president
of the Cristobal-Margarita-Brazos
Heights Civic Council, will be done
before the start of rainy season.
In reply to an earlier request for
greater availability of a doctor at
Gamboa, which shares its physician
with the penitentiary, the Governor
stated the Health Director has
arranged for a physician from Pan-
ama to cover the Gamboa Peniten-
tiary. The change should be effective
by mid-February.
Governor Leber gave a list of
seventh period courses offered at
Canal Zone high schools with insuf-
ficient response to warrant holding
the classes, for which 10 were needed
to sign up. The courses at Balboa
High School were wood shop, sec-
ond semester German, marine biol-
ogy, a capella choir, and commer-
cial Spanish. At Cristobal High
School, there was one course, art.

Classes in the course will be
scheduled at the Jewish Welfare
Board headquarters in Balboa. Those
interested in taking the classes may

Sobre Velocidad

El "Highway Research Board" de
los Estados Unidos, da algunos datos
muy interesantes respect a la velo-
cidad en los vehiculos. Por ejemplo:
mientras mis largo es el viaje, mis
alta es la velocidad promedio; las
mujeres y los hombres divorciados y
las mujeres solteras, conducen mAs
ripido que las mujeres y los hombres
casados; las personas que manejan un
auto prestado conducen a mayor velo-
cidad que los que operan su propio
vehiculo; mientras mAs alto sea el
promedio de kil6metros conducidos
durante el ailo, mis alto es el prome-
dio de velocidad; la velocidad prome-
dio de los omnibuses, vehiculos de pa-
sajerns y camiones sigue ese mismo
orden; los automobiles nuevos son
conducidos a mAs velocidad que los
viejos; los conductores de automoviles
cars manejan mas rapido que los de
autom6viles baratos.
