Cut Widening Job To Be Speeded Up

Shipping companies whose vessels
use the Panama Canal will get a
bonus as the result of a modification
of the Cut widening contract.
Completion of the Cut widening
project originally was expected to
require about 4% years. It now is
expected to finished in December
1969 instead of May 1971-which
would mean a wider Cut to better
serve shipping 17 months earlier.
There'll also be a substantial bene-
fit to the Canal organization through
lower costs for explosive materials
and drilling expense.
The Cut widening job, for widen-
ing from 300 to 500 feet the 3-mile
Bas Obispo-Las Cascadas Reaches of
Gaillard Cut, is the last and one of
the largest contracts in the long-
range Cut widening program, which
was started in 1959. The final project
now is approximately 32 percent
(Length of the entire Cut is 8.3
The contract was awarded in

Navigation Aids

Chief Retires,

Returns to Job
Jesse DeWitt Tate, who retired
January 31 as Chief Foreman Elec-
trical Navigational Aids of the Pan-
ama Canal's Dredging Division after
341/2 years' Canal service, was back
on the job the following day.
There was no retirement ceremony
in January, so he will receive his
retirement certificate in the ceremony
this month.
A special ceremony in his honor
was held, however, in the office of
Col. James A. Betts, Director of the
Panama Canal's Engineering and
Construction Bureau. In the presence
of the bureau's division chiefs, Colo-
nel Betts congratulated Tate and
presented him a Panama Canal
Superior Service Award in recogni-
tion of superior performance during
his many years of Canal service.
The award was accompanied by a
check for $150 and Colonel Betts,
quoting a former Canal Zone Gov-
ernor, suggested Tate endorse it and
present it to Mrs. Tate.
Tate, a native of Greenville
County, S.C., has 34V2 years' un-
broken service with the Panama
Canal and 2% years' U.S. Navy serv-
ice. He worked with the Electrical
and Lighthouse Divisions and, in the
merger of the two, went to Gamboa.
His hobby is duck hunting and he
is a member of a hunting club in

Retirement Counseling

Study Is Completed
Robert Van Wagner, former Chief
of the Employees Services Branch of
the Personnel Bureau, returned to the
United States aboard the SS Cristobal
this week after completing a special
study on retirement counseling for
the Panama Canal organization.
Van Wagner, who retired from his
position with the Personnel Bureau
in 1963, was rehired for this special
project and spent about a month in
the Canal Zone.
Since his retirement, he makes his
home in Hendersonville, N.C. On
his trip to the Isthmus, he was accom-
panied by Mrs. Van Wagner.

November 1966 to Oman Construc-
tion Co. of Nashville, Tenn. Work
started in January 1967. Original
contract cost was $7,680,000 on the
schedule for excavation and disposal
of Zone I material above an eleva-
tion of 95 feet plus drilling and blast-
ing of Zone II (below 95 feet) mate-
rial in preparation for removal by
Panama Canal dredges.
The modification just approved
will add approximately $832,000 to
the contract cost for additional work,
but the net cost to PanCanal will
amount to only about $300,000.
Lower explosives and drilling costs
partly offset the contract change by
approximately $520,000.
The savings to PanCanal on ex-
plosive materials will result from
modification of the contract to permit
use of slurry, an ammonium nitrate
blasting agent, instead of that speci-
fied earlier (60 percent ammonium
In addition, drilled holes will all
be 5-inch diameter instead of 3-, 4-,
and 5-inch, as originally specified.

CZC Dean To Attend

Boston Convention
Dr. Donald W. Skinner, dean of
Canal Zone College, will take part
in the 48th annual convention of the
American Association of Junior Col-
leges February 26 to March 1 at the
Sheraton-Boston Hotel, Boston Mass.
He will be among some 1,500 col-
lege administrators and faculty mem-
bers attending the meeting.
The association represents a major-
ity of the country's 2-year colleges.
It will consider issues and problems
in higher education related to junior
college development. Among topics
to be considered are those dealing
with faculty development, facilities
planning, Federal aid to education,
new curriculums, and response of the
junior college to new social needs.
John Macy, chairman of the U.S.
Civil Service Commission, will be
among the major speakers.

Cascadas Hill, also a part of the con-
tract modification, will insure a better
safety factor against a possible future
earth slide.
A 5-foot deepening of the part of
the Cut currently being widened also
is included in the modification for
that portion of the work performed
subsequent to the modification.
The change to slurry explosive in-
cludes an important increase in safety
factor. The slurry is less sensitive than
the 60 percent ammonium gelatin.

It is made up of several chemical
components, each non-explosive by
itself. The chemicals then are mixed
on the job site and either pumped
into the drill holes as a liquid (which
later solidifies) or made into pre-
packaged material-similar to sau-
sages-and dropped into the drill
The slurry is not affected by stand-
ing water and cannot be prematurely
detonated by a blasting cap or

Continued Cutback on Power Use Urged

Continued cooperation-by all
users-in electric power conservation
is asked by Col. James A. Betts,
Engineering and Construction Direc-
Recent efforts of shop and office
supervisors, as well as quarters occu-
pants, throughout Panama Canal and
military areas in the Canal Zone have
been effective in keeping the midday
peak load on the electric power sys-
tem within bounds.
Continuing dry weather, however,
reduced water inflow into Gatun
Lake to a record low in January. This
makes it imperative that water con-
servation policies continue to be
observed stringently, including the
continued shutdown of the Gatun
Hydroelectric Station.
With the Gatun generating station
out of service, capacity of the other
generation stations is sufficient to
carry the entire system load only
when the normal peak load is re-
duced. Users' efforts to restrict their
electric power use in the 10 to 2
daytime period have been a great
help in accomplishing this, officials
say, and are greatly appreciated.

The rest of the dry season promises
to be very dry, and, from all present
indications it may be a long one. It
is therefore requested that present
voluntary power-use restrictions be
continued in view of the non-opera-
tion of Gatun Hydroelectric Station
until sometime after the rainy season
sets in.
All Canal Zone residents can assist
materially in reducing the critical
peak load by operating large electric
appliances prior to 10 in the morning
and after 2 in the afternoon. If elec-

he accomplished in early morning or
late afternoon hours, the midday
peak will be reduced.
Curtailing use of air conditioners
during the middle of the day also will
be helpful in keeping down the peak
Icad. All forms of reducing load are
useful, however. Turning off of un-
necessary light and avoidance of the
use of small electrical appliances
during the peak period contribute
to the conservation of electric power,
too, and this practice is encouraged.
The alternate to voluntary load
reduction is arbitrary "load-shed-
ding," by which large sections of a
community would have to be com-
pletely disconnected from the power
system for 1 hour or 2 at a time
during critical periods.
The Electrical Division has such
a plan, but with continued voluntary
power-usage reductions, particularly
during the peak-load hours, it should
not be necessary to put this plan into
effect unless there is an unforseen
emergency shut-down of one of the
larger generating units.

Ruling Benefits

Canal Retirees
According to a recent U.S. Con-
troller General decision, Panama
Canal employees who retire volun-
tarily will be released from their
home leave transportation agreement
if they have served 1 full year after
returning to duty. These retirees will
now receive full repatriation trans-
portation benefits.
Formerly, only employees who
retired at age 62 were released from
transportation agreements after 1
year' service without transportation

New Stamps

Go on Sale

March 15

A 10-cent (yellow) and 25-cent
(green) airmail and 6-cent (blue-
green) ordinary postage stamps will
be placed on sale at Balboa Post
Office March 15.
The multicolor airmail stamps,
approximately 0.84" x 1.44" in size
and issued in sheets of 50, except for
denominations and colors, will be the
same as the present permanent air-
mail series which incorporate the
Seal of the Canal Zone Government
on the left and a jet plane on the
right of the stamp. There's a slip-
stream to the rear of the plane; and
with "Canal Zone" across the top
and "Air Mail Postage" and the value
across the bottom of the stamps. The
seal will be in black and white and
the plane, printing, and denomination
will be in black.
The 6-cent ordinary postage stamp,
approximately 0.87" x 0.75" in size
and issued in sheets of 100, will be
printed in blue-green and will have
as its main subject the Goethals
Memorial, Balboa.
Stamp collectors desiring first day
cancellations of the stamps may send
addressed envelopes to the Philatelic
Agency, Balboa, C.Z,. with money
order remittance to cover the cost
of the stamps affixed.
Postage stamps and personal
checks will not be accepted. Enve-
lopes submitted should be of ordinary
letter size and should be properly
addressed. An enclosure of medium
weight should be placed in each
envelope and the flap either turned
in or sealed. An outside envelope
must not be sent for the return of
first day covers.
Each cover should be pencil
marked in the upper right-hand
corer to show the number of stamps
and denominations to be affixed,
therefore, no letter of instruction need
to be sent. The envelope to the
agency should be endorsed "First
Day Covers." Requests for unusual
arrangements and plate numbers
cannot be granted.
Requests for mint stamps must not
be included with orders for first day
covers, but sent separately to the

An award for excellence won while he was employed at the Norfolk (Virginia)
Naval Shipyard is presented Billy P. Gooch, boilermaker in the Industrial
Division at Mount Hope by Capt. Donald A. Dertien, USN, Marine Director.
The letter of commendation from Rear Admiral J. Brown, USN, is in
recognition of the work on two U.S. Navy ships done recently in Norfolk.
It was accompanied by a check for $200. Gooch, a native of Pensacola,
Fla., joined the Canal organization in June 1967. During the 20 years he
has worked in and with the U.S. Navy in the boilermaker field and as a
supervisor, he has received several letters of commendation.

Pilots Get


Capt. Paul L. Skrable, newest Pan-
ama Canal pilot, looks justifiably
proud as he shows two pilots-in-
training his unlimited Panama Canal
pilot's license, earned after complet-
ing 17 months of pilot's training.
Capt. William T. Boyland received
his license to pilot ships up 526 feet
in length after 7 months of training,
and Capt. Ray V. Hall, got his for
ships up to 225 feet after 4 months
of training.
The licenses were given in the
Cristobal Port Captain's office with
Capt. D. A. Dertien, USN, Marine
Director; Capt. Alvin L. Gallin, USN,
Navigation Director; and Capt.
Ernest B. Rainier, Cristobal Port Cap-
tain, making the presentations.
Captain Skrable, a native of Iowa,
is a veteran of the Korean War and
served in the U.S. merchant marine
from 1953 to 1966, mostly Lykes
Lines out of Texas.
Captain Boyland was a resident of
Maryland and was employed by the
Military Sea Transport Service before
coming to the Canal. Captain Hall
is from West Virginia and worked
for 20 years with Lykes Lines before
joining the Canal organization. He
also holds a first class Houston Ship
Canal pilot's license.

By Emily J. Price
Seymour Epstein's novel Caught
in That Music is exceptionally good.
It's the story of Jonas Gould, aged
22, in the New York of 1941. With
the shadow of war coming close,
Jonas faces the changes in his family,
his friends, and in himself. The
whole cast of characters is vivid and
absorbing and Jonas himself is the
most appealing hero of recent fiction.
Truth can be stranger than fiction,
as English author Richard Ollard
proves in The Escape of Charles II.
After his disastrous defeat by Crom-
well at the Battle of Worcester, there
was a reward of 1,000 for Charles'
capture. Six weeks later, with his
drunken "aide," he arrived in France
while Cromwell's men were still
searching the English coast. This
good escape story tells about those
6 weeks.
One of the greatest of all Indian
battles is recreated by Western writer
Dee Brown in Action at Beecher
Island. The story of the 9-day siege
of Forsyth's Scouts by Plains Indians
at Beecher Island in September 1868
is based upon reports, diaries, letters,
and accounts of participants, both
Scouts and Indians. Here are excite-
ment and history for Western fans.
Alexandra Roudybush's new mys-
tery is named Death of a Moral
Person, a translation of personnele
morale," the French term for "cor-
poration." All sorts of chicanery and
upsets occur in this story when an
American tycoon decides to manu-
facture disposable clothes in Paris.

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. To qualify for a II-S defer-
ment, must a registrant enter col-
lege in the first class commencing
after graduation from high school?
A. The answer is no; however,
under present conditions a registrant
19 years or older will be highly vul-
nerable to the draft unless he has
grounds for deferment or is found not
qualified for military service.
Q. What is the maximum penalty
that can be assessed for violation
of the Selective Service law?
A. The maximum penalty that can
be assessed for any one violation of
the Military Selective Service Act of
1967 is imprisonment of no more than
5 years or a fine of not more than
$10,000, or both such fine and im-

Thirty or more artists from the
Canal Zone and Panama are expected
to take part in the annual outdoor art
show at Stevens Circle Saturday. The
show is being sponsored by the Na-
tional League of American Pen-
women, Canal Zone and Panama
Branch, and is open to all interested
artists whether or not they are res-
idents of the Isthmus.
Because of the success of last
year's show and the large number of
entries, part of the Prado as well as
all of Stevens Circle is being reserved
for exhibits. Spaces are being allowed
on a first come, first served basis.
There is a registration fee of $1 for
all non-members exhibiting.

Magazine Discusses

6 Fairs of Azuero

A well-documented magazine con-
taining information on the six Azuero
fairs held since 1962 has been pub-
lished by newsmen Pantale6n Hen-
riquez Bernal and Jorge E. Ruiz.
It tells the story of the fairs from
the first Gran Feria de Azuero held
in Monagrillo in 1962 to the Sexta
Feria which took place in La Villa
de Los Santos in 1966. The beginning
of these fairs in Los Santos from 1944
to 1947 also is noted.
The S6ptima Feria de Azuero
(Seventh Fair of Azuero) will be held
from April 2 to April 6 and, as in
previous years, the Panama Canal
organization and other U.S. agencies
on the Isthmus will participate in
the fair.

A heat record to end all heat
records, would probably have to
occur to fry an egg on the pavement
according to researchers for The
Asphalt Institute. In a year-long
study of temperature variations in
thick asphalt pavement, the highest
surface temperature recorded was
1420 when the air temperature was
93. It takes at least 3000 to start
eggs cooking, say the researchers.

Mobile X-Ray

Unit To Be in

Pedro Miguel

S The new Health Bureau Mobile
X-ray Unit put in operation recently
as a part of the tuberculosis control
program will be in Pedro Miguel at
the Little League Baseball Park
Monday and Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. to
3:30 p.m.
Any adult who has not had a chest
X-ray in the past 6 months should
take advantage of this service and
visit the unit while it is in his
neighborhood. The X-rays are made
free of charge.
All residents in the area may be
X-rayed. This service also is avail-
able to persons working in private
homes, taxi drivers, and others in the
area who request it.
Children under 15 years of age
will not be X-rayed. Dependents
under 21 years of age must have
written permission or be accom-
panied by a parent or guardian.
Employees are being X-rayed on
the worksite at Pedro Miguel Locks,
Miraflores Locks, the Water Purifi-
cation Plant, and the Power Plant.
Employees working in these areas
should be X-rayed when the Mobile
X-ray Unit is at their place of em-
ployment. Persons living in Pedro
Miguel who work for the Supply and
Community Service Bureau will be
X-rayed later when the unit is at
their work site.
Chest X-rays taken by the Mobile
Unit detect not only tuberculosis and
other pulmonary (lung) disease but
certain types of heart disease. Early
treatment of disease shortens the
period of illness and in many cases
prevents lost time from the job.

The Psychedelic Lollipop Combo
will play for the dancing crowd at
the Balboa Teen Club tonight from
7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Members will be
admitted free. Non-members pay a
nominal fee. Dress will be sports-

al monarca espafiol a tomar tal deci-

Nfiiez de Balboa, fechada el 20 de
enero de 1513, y quien le informaba
que "en esta provincia del Dari6n
hai descobiertas muchas y mui ricas
minas, hai oro en much cantidad:
estan descubiertos veinte rios, i trein-
ta que tienen oro salen de una sierra
que esti fast dos leguas de esta villa,
va su via hacia el mediodia". MAs
adelante dice: "hai dos jornadas desde
este Cacique Davaide fasta estas ricas
minas, la manera como se recoge es
sin ning6n trabajo de dos maneras,
la una es que esperan que crescan
los rios de las quebradas, y desque
pasan las crccientes quedan secos y
queda el oro descobierto de lo que
roba de las barrancas i trae de la
sierra en mui gordos granos: sefialan
los Yndios que son del tamafio de
naranjas" .

Tendra n su Banquete Ruso

Los Alumnos de Crist6bal

Los estudiantes entran al sal6n de
classes conversando en voz baja, pero
en ruso. (Foto en la secci6n inglesa.)
Pero el lugar no es Leningrado, ni
Moscui, ni cualquier otro lugar de
Rusia. Es la Escuela Secundaria de
Crist6bal, donde se dicta el unico
curso de lengua rusa en toda la Zona
del Canal. El professor es James E.
Stearns, quien enseiia en esa escuela.
Probablemente, esta es la 6nica
clase del Istmo cuyo banquet annual
tiene un menui escrito en ruso y con-
tiene plates tales como caviar en
crema agria, ravioles a la siberiana,
polio a la Kiev, ensalada a la Yalta, y
Baclava. La cubierta del menu trae
cada afio una alegre escena rusa.
Durante la noche del banquet, el
sal6n comedor del Breakers Club
parece un sal6n de banquetes ruso,
que es como le gusta celebrar su
banquet annual a los miembros de
la clase.
No s61o hablan ruso los estudian-
tes durante sus classes y come comi-
das rusas tipicas durante su banquet,
sino que tambi6n pueden escribir car-
tas en ruso y ya se estin familiari-
zando con la misica rusa.
El instructor de la clase recomien-
da este curso, tanto para los que van
a ingresar al servicio military como
para las personas que desean conti-
nuar studios superiores en ciencias.
Las classes de idioma ruso de la
Escuela Secundaria de Crist6bal se

dictan luego de las classes regulars
y constituyen un curso optional. El
de este afo es el tercero que se dicta
y el segundo en que se utiliza el
m6todo audio lingual. Doce alumnos
componen la clase.

Revista Sobre las

Ferias de Azuero

En Circulaci6n

Una bien documentada revista que
ofrece informaciones sobre las seis
Ferias de Azuero celebradas desde
1962, ha sido editada por los perio-
distas Pantale6n Henriquez Bernal y
Jorge E. Ruiz.
Se relata alli desde la primera
Gran Feria de Azuero celebrada en
la poblaci6n de Monagrillo en 1962,
hasta la Sexta Feria que tuvo como
sede la Villa de Los Santos.
Tambi6n se destaca la primera jor-
nada de esas ferias, de 1944 a 1947,
cuando se celebraron en Los Santos.
La S6ptima Feria de Azuero se
celebrarA este afio desde el 2 de
abril en la Villa de Los Santos, y
como lo han hecho en afios anterio-
res, participarAn todas las agencies
de los Estados Unidos en la Zona

se apaguen las luces innecesarias y se
evite el uso de pequeilos artefactos
el6ctricos durante las horas critics,
para ayudar a conservar la energia
La alternative a la conservaci6n
voluntaria de energia el6ctrica seria
una repartici6n arbitraria de energia,
con la cual grandes secciones de una
comunidad serian completamente
desconectadas del sistema de energia
durante 1 6 2 horas a la vez, en los
periods critics.
La Division de Electricidad tiene
ya ese plan, pero si se contin6a con
I las reducciones voluntarias en el uso
de la electricidad, particularmente
durante las horas de carga mAxima,
no sera necesario poner en efecto este
plan, a no ser que haya que ccrrar
de emergencia alguna de las grande

espera que ocurra por ahora.

primera compilaci6n de las leyes tri-
