Week From Today

Fishing Boat

Is Refloated

The 142-foot tuna fishing boat
Southern Sea, which sank Christmas
eve and blocked the entrance to the
Balboa drydock off Pier 8, was re-
floated after more than 6 weeks of
effort on the part of the Panama
Canal and a team of salvage experts
from the Murphy Pacific Marine
Salvage Co. of New York.
The Panama Canal floating crane
Hercules entered the picture twice
and the Murphy Pacific Co. used an
unique underwater spray gun to
force polyurethane foam into the
flooded compartments.
The 400-ton fishing boat proved
more troublesome than some of the
larger vessels handled by the Pan-
ama Canal. Before she floated again,
the assistance and equipment of the
Salvage Depot of the Industrial Divi-
sion, the Dredging Division and the
Maintenance Division were used. The
salvage company team, headed by
Capt. Nelson R. Hiller, salvage
master included four divers and four
diver tenders, two chemists special-
izing in foam, and several other em-
ployees hired locally. The operation
cost more than $120,000.
Salvage work on the tuna boat
actually began early in January when
Captain Hiller brought in his men
and equipment and started with the
foam injection. Four divers and the

Folkloric Group
To Perform at
Old Panama Ruins
The Conjunto Tipico de Agua-
dulce, a folkloric group performing
typical dances of Panama, will be
presented at the ruins of Old Pan-
ama at 10:30 a.m., Saturday. The
folklore show is sponsored by the
Panama Tourist Bureau and the
National Lottery of Panama.
The conjunto, which made its
debut in February 1967, has become
very popular in the Interior and in
Panama City, where it has appeared
on television, at the National Theater
and the National Stadium. The group
has been awarded recognition and
was named the "Folkloric Institution
of the Year."

four diver tenders worked in relay
teams in this phase. The idea was
to provide bouyancy of 100 tons so
that the vessel could be righted under
water to an even keel and thus permit
divers to fit hatches on the 12 big
fish wells making them water tight.
The procedure failed on the initial

On Gorgas Hospital Outpatient System Change

Gorgas Hospital's Outpatient
Clinic will go on an all-appointment
basis March 11 and Health Bureau
officials are convinced both better
patient service and better use of hos-
pital facilities and personnel will
result-with cooperation.
To make the cooperation as fully
effective as possible, and mutually
beneficial, several guidelines have
been provided by the Health Bureau
on a question and answer basis:
Q.-If a doctor has given you an
appointment for a return visit, must
you call in?
A.-No. On your last visit your
doctor told you that you should
return on a specific date. You were
given an appointment slip which
confirmed the date.

The performance is free and the Q.-Should you call in to obtain
public is invited. There will be reports of laboratory tests or X-rays?
ample parking space. A.-Not unless suggested by the

physician. If the report from the
laboratory turns up something new
and unexpected, you will be called.
If you do not hear from the hospital,
you can rest assured that the tests
were as expected by your physician.
Q.-Will there be delays in your
being seen when you have an
A.-Normally, delays will not
occur. On occasion, delays occur
because your doctor has been called
to treat an emergency, or to care for
other priority patients, such as
prisoners, persons injured at work,
seamen on ships transiting the Canal,
and emergencies on ships in local
waters. When these things occur,
patients' patience is requested, for
the circumstances are beyond control
of hospital personnel.
Q.-What should you do if your
appointment is delayed?

A.-Ask why it is being delayed.
If there is a delay, you should know
the reason for it-and the hospital
wants you to know. Please ask the
clinic clerk.
Q.-Can you go directly to a
A.-Normally, no! Although care
under all medical specialties is avail-
able to you, you must be seen by
one of the physicians in the Out-
patient Clinic before being referred
to a specialist. Only those cases which
require such referral will be handled
in this manner. The physicians will
decide which cases merit referral.
Please do not call the specialists
directly, because they will not see
you unless you have a consultation
request from one of the Outpatient
Clinic doctors.

The U.S. Army Commendation Medal was awarded by Canal Zone Gov.
W. P. Leber, left, to Maj. Gene B. Fee, Sr., center, Corps of Engineers,
for outstanding performance of duty as assistant chief, Sea Level Canal
Support Division. Mrs. Fee is at right.

Maj. Fee is Awarded

Army Commendation

Meritorious service by Maj. Gene
B. Fee, Sr., Corps of Engineers, in
connection with the sea level canal
studies in Panama and Colombia,
was recognized in a ceremony in
the Administration Building, Balboa
Heights, when Gov. W. P. Leber
awarded him the U.S. Army
Commendation Ribbon with Medal
Major Fee, who was assigned here
as assistant chief of the Sea Level
Canal Support Division, engaged in
the supervision of the operation of
the field studies in Panama and
Colombia and participated actively
in the management, construction, and
contract phase of the studies.
His supervision of the base camp
construction at Curiche Beach on
Humboldt Bay, Colombia, was par-
ticularly noteworthy in that his
leadership set a high standard for
those who followed him in the later
phases of the studies. He also was
accountable officer for over $1 million
in property and contract administra-
tor for over $1 million in contracts
let by the Panama Canal in behalf
of the Atlantic-Pacific Interoceanic
Canal Study Commission.
Governor Leber, in presenting the
award, expressed regrets at Major
Fee's departure and voiced the hope
that he would return to the Isthmus
upon completion of his tour in Viet-
nam, where Major Fee will be
assigned to the 85th Engineer Con-
struction Battalion.
Major Fee reported to the Canal

Plastic water-filled auto bumpers
are being marketed in California and
Utah. The manufacturer says that
immediate consumer demand for the
bumpers was created by public test-
ing of the device by police agencies.
The bumpers are bolted to the front
and rear frame sections of a vehicle
after the original bumpers have been
removed. The hollow plastic shells
are then filled with water and capped
with a row of pop-out stoppers. In a
front- or rear-end collision, the stop-
pers are forced out by a geyser of
water. The idea is to soften the impact
of the crash.

ful tour with the Gulf District as
resident engineer for the Mogadiscio
Port Construction Project in the
Somali Republic for the Mediterra-
nean Division, Corps of Engineers.
He entered U.S. Army service
upon graduation from Georgia Tech
in 1958 with a degree in mathematics.
He also has a degree in civil engineer-
ing from the University of Missouri.
Major and Mrs. Fee and three
children will be in Birmingham and
Spartanburg on a month's leave prior
to his departure for Vietnam.

John W. Carlisle, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Thornton H. Carlisle of Mar-
garita, who was selected as this year's
winner in the Veterans of Foreign
Wars Voice of Democracy Contest
for the Canal Zone, will leave the
Isthmus today for Washington, D.C.,
on the all-expense trip awarded the
first place winner. He also will have
an opportunity to compete for
$13,500 in VFW scholarships.
John, a sophomore at Cristobal
High School, was selected from 30
Canal Zone finalists. His theme, "The
Deadly Trio," dealt with internal
disorders-riot, crime, and subver-
sion-and their effect on the con-
tinuance of freedom.
The Canal Zone runner-up was
Ellen Roys of Balboa High School;
third place went to Gregg Miller of
Balboa High; and fourth place to
Stanley W. Janasiewicz of Cristobal
High School.
The Voice of Democracy contest,
sponsored by the VFW, is a nation-
wide program for high school stu-
dents. The subject this year was
"Freedom's Challenge." Awards are
presented the four finalists by the

Later the floating crane Hercules
was brought in to provide stability
but efforts to pump out the ship
compartments failed due to the fact
that the machmery spaces had not
been made completely watertight.
The Hercules came in the second
time late in February. The Southern
Sea was brought to the surface and
held stable by the big crane while
the salvage company pumps forced
the water from the flooded machinery

own by the morning of February 24.
It was the first time that the
underwater foam method, which is
patented by the Murphy Pacific Ma-
rine Co., was used in the Canal Zone.
It has been successful in salvage work
on ships sunk off Vietnam and on
U.S. Navy ships in the South China
Sea. About 100 tons of the stuff was
used on the Southern Sea.

Cayuco Race

Dates Fixed

A record number of cayucos are
expected to participate in a hotly
contested 1968 ocean-to-ocean cayu-
co race in the Panama Canal April 19,
20, and 21.
Each year this Atlantic 'to Pacific
Ocean race brings out a strong spirit
of competition of the Explorers in the
Canal Zone Council, Boy Scouts of
America. Explorer groups on both
sides of the Isthmus are readying new
cayucos or conditioning and testing
old cayucos that participated in races
other years.
The 50-mile race, one of the out-
standing sports spectacles of the year,
attracts large crowds of spectators to
cheer the crews as they paddle
through the Canal.

"West Side Story"

(Continued from p. 1)

College, and who scored a personal
success as Becket in the drama of
the same name at the Ancon Play-
house, will be the director of "West
Side Story." He was director and
producer of the Canal Zone College's
outstanding success "Bye Bye Birdie"
and now is producer and director of
the College production "Li'l Abner."
The choreographer of "West Side
Story" is Vera Bomford, who pro-
duced and choreographed "Okla-
homa!" She also was choreographer
for "South Pacific," "Little Mary
Sunshine," "The Fantasticks," and
"Bye Bye Birdie," and is doing the
choreography for "Li'l Abner."
Carl Chapman, director of music
at Canal Zone College, will direct
the music for "West Side Story." He
was music director for "Bye Bye
Birdie" and is directing the music
for the new College production,
"Li'l Abner."
"West Side Story" is based on
Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet,"
which has been updated and placed
in a New York setting. The story
deals with gang warfare of native
New Yorkers and Puerto Ricans, and
principally with the conflict between
two gangs known as the Jets and the
Sharks, respectively, counterparts of
Shakespeare's Montagues and Capu-
lets. The play was directed on
Broadway by Jerome Robbins, who
also did the brilliant choreography.
The music is by the famous United
States composer Leonard Bernstein.
The music for the Canal Zone
production will be played by the

Con Pericia y Equipo

Sale a Flote Atunero

La grua flotante "Hrcules" proporciona estabilidad al barco atunero mientras se hace el trabajo de bombeo.

El atunero Southern Sea, de 142
pies, que se habia hundido la vispera
de Navidad y habia obstruido la en-
trada al dique seco del Muelle 8 de
Balboa, fue puesto nuevamente a
flote despues de mis de 6 semanas
de esfuerzos por parte del Canal de
Panama y un equipo de experts en
salvamento de la Cia. Murphy Pacific
Marine Salvage de Nueva York.
La gr6a flotante Hercules del
Canal de PanamA entr6 en acci6n dos
veces y la Cia. Murphy Pacific utiliz6
una magnifica pistola pulverizadora
subacuAtica para introducir por fuer-
za espuma de poliuretano en los com-
partimientos inundados.
El atunero de 400 toneladas dio
mis problems que algunos barcos
mis grandes manejados por el Canal
de Panama. Antes de que fuera
puesto nuevamente a flote, se nece-
sit6 la ayuda y el equipo del Dep6-
sito de Salvamento de la Divisi6n
Industrial, de la Divisi6n de Dragas

y de la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento.
El grupo de la compafiia de salva-
mento, encabezado por el CapitAn
Nelson R. Hiller, director de salva-
mento incluia a cuatro buzos y cua-
tro alijadores, dos quimicos especia-
lizados en espuma y various otros em-
pleados locales. La operaci6n cost
mis de $120.000.
El trabajo de salvamento del atu-
nero realmente comenz6 a principios
de enero cuando el Capitin Hiller
trajo su personal y equipo y empez6
a inyectar espuma. Los cuatro buzos
y los cuatro alijadores trabajaron en
equipos de relevo en esta fase. La
idea era hacer flotar 100 toneladas de
manera que se pudicra enderezar la
nave bajo el agua en iguales calados
lo que permitiria que los buzos arre-
glaran bien las escotillas de los 12
grandes pozos de pescado que se
hacian agua.
