Vol. VIII, No. 19 More Than 55 Years of Service to World Commerce Friday, October 24, 1969


r ...

J .' A,&iel , ,
The "Acadia Forest," the world's first lighter-aboard-ship or LASH vessel,
passes through Miraflores Locks on her delivery transit from Japan, where
she was built, to New Orleans where she will be taken over by Norwegian
owners. Although she is carrying general cargo in containers on her first
trip through the Canal, she will be equipped with 73 lighter barges which
will carry International Paper Co. products from U.S. Gulf Ports to North-
ern Europe and general cargo on the return trip. The lighters are to be
built in New Orleans and installed there. The "Acadia Forest," which
measures 860 feet in length and 107 feet in the beam, will not be a regular
Canal customer. It is expected, however, that other LASH vessels being
built by Prudential Lines and Lykes Bros. may use the Canal in the future.

Governor Leber Honors

50-Year Employees

More than 200 years with the
Panama Canal were represented in
the joint achievement of four Canal
employees who were honored by
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber at a
50-Year Service Awards ceremony
Family and friends of the honored
employees attended the ceremony
held in the Rotunda of the Ad-
ministration Building at Balboa
Governor Leber presented Cyril
D. Atherley, Eric C. McDonald,
Gaspar Garcia de Paredes, and
Mike G. Budd each with an Emi-
nently Satisfactory Extended Serv-
ice Award, a Key to the Locks and
a check for $500 in recognition of
50 years exemplary service to the
Panama Canal.
The Governor remarked that the
Canal was only 5 years old when
these men came to work for the
waterway in 1919.
"Not many organizations in the
world have employees with work
records of such a long length of
time," the Governor remarked.
He said that the four employees
are seeing things done today which
were not dreamed of when they
came to work for the Canal. "Many
improvements have taken place on
the Canal and you have been part
of the overall picture as you have
been doing your work," the Gov-
ernor told the employees.
Cyril Atherley, supervisory clerk-
typist, Marine Bureau, who came
to the Isthmus from Barbados in
1907, recalls that during his early
days on the Canal, ships used to tie

up in the harbor. Rodman did not
exist and that area was a swamp.
There was no ferry and the only
way to cross the Canal was over
the locks. Commenting on the
Thatcher Ferry Bridge as the most
important change to occur during
his time, Atherley said he remem-
bers a suspension bridge across the
Canal and an old wooden bridge
at Empire that he used as a boy.
Atherley, who has been a resident
of the Canal Zone for 60 years,
was first employed in May 1919 as
a messenger in the Correspondence
Bureau at Balboa Heights. He also
worked as a messenger in the
Mechanical Division before trans-
ferring to the Marine Division as an
office helper. He has worked in the
clerical field in the Marine Bureau
since that time being promoted to
supervisory clerk-typist in 1959.
He recalls that a most memorable
experience in his Canal career was
delivering mail to HMS Renown
when the Prince of Wales came
through the Canal in the early
McDonald, accounting clerk in
the Accounting Division, was born
in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and came
to the Isthmus when he was a child.
His first job on the Canal was as a
messenger at $20 a month in the
Supply Division at Cristobal. Dur-
ing his long career on the Canal,
with never a break in service, he
has held a number of jobs including
office helper, clerk, general account-
ing clerk and accounts maintenance
clerk in the Corozal Cold Storage

$8 Million In Improvements

Could Up Traffic by 27%

The capacity of the Panama
Canal could be increased to an
average of 51 ships a day or 18,600
a year if improvements costing
approximately $8 million are made,
according to conclusions reached
during the Canal Improvements
Studies started 2 years ago by
Canal Zone Gov. W. P. Leber. This
would be about 27 percent more
than the 14,600 oceangoing ships
put through the Canal during fiscal
year 1969.
The total 'could be increased to
26,800 ships a year if improvements
costing about $92 million are made.
The modest short range program

would consist of relatively minor
and low cost projects for which a
definite need exists and which have
economic benefit. This would in-
clude modernization of the marine
traffic control system; provision for
transiting Gaillard Cut during fog
periods; the installation of lateral
culvert bulkheads at Miraflores
Locks like those already in use at
Pedro Miguel Locks; and several
other minor improvements which
would speed up operations around
the locks.
The more expensive long range
program would consist of projects
required in the future to handle

Can Change Health Plans

During "Open Season"

Panama Canal organization em-
ployees will have a chance to
change their health benefit plans
during an "open season" Novem-
ber 10-28.
During this period, persons eli-
gible to participate in the various
health plans may either become a
member or change from one plan
to another. This will be the time
also to change categories within one
program-individual to family, from
family to individual or both.
Brochures describing each health
plan have been revised and include
the increased rate changes. The
new pamphlets are printed on
white paper to distinguish them
from the existing blue brochures
which become obsolete after
January 1, 1970.
Before November 10, the Em-
ployee Services Branch, Personnel
Bureau, will have distributed to
each eligible employee an "Open

Deadline Nears

For Dog, Cat

Pet owners are reminded that
every dog and cat in the Canal Zone
communities must be registered and
wearing a new 1970 license tag by
the end of this month.
Canal Zone regulations require
that a dog or cat that is 4 months
old or older must be innoculated
against rabies. Dogs are vaccinated
every 3 years, but must have a new
license every year. Cats must be
innoculated every year and licensed
every year.
(Dogs do not have to accompany
their owners if only licenses are
One week from the deadline,
only 810 of approximately 2,500
dogs and about 160 cat of the pos-
sible 400 cat population have been
registered on the Pacific side. In
the Atlantic area, only half of the
dogs and about 60 of the 200 cats
there have been registered.
Pacific side dogs and cats not
currently vaccinated should be
taken to the Corozal Animal Clinic
during the morning hours for inno-
culations and registration. No
appointment is necessary from 8
a.m. to noon. An appointment,

well as the brochure for the Canal
Zone Benefit Plan. Members of
employee organizations which
sponsor health benefit plans (i.e.
AFGE) will receive brochures of
the organization's plan through the
mail direct from the Civil Service
Any eligible employee who does
not receive the appropriate bro-
chures and the instructions pamph-
let by November 10, should call
the Employee Services Branch,
telephone 2-2126 or 2-2661. Any
employee who is interested in an
AFGE plan brochure will be able
to obtain a copy on request from
the above mentioned branch.
An employee who wants to
change his enrollment, or who
wants to enroll, must complete a
Health Benefits Registration Form
(Standard Form 2809). The com-
pleted form must be received by
the Employee Services Branch no
later than November 28. These
forms are available at the Em-

increased traffic and to provide
more water for lockages. This pro-
gram is keyed to various levels of
traffic rather than exact years so
that it can be tailored to fit the
needs caused by changes in the rate
of growth.
Primarily, this program would
consist of the purchase of additional
locomotives and tugboats; the pro-
vision for additional lockage water
by deepening Gaillard Cut and
some channels in Gatun Lake, plus
pumping sea water when necessary;
alterations in the locks control sys-
tem and facilities to speed up lock-
ages: and the widening of the re-
strictive sea level channels.
This study was a joint effort by
Panama Canal personnel and A. T.
Kearney & Co. of Chicago, a con-
sultant firm in the transportation
This report noted that in the past
15 years about $70 million in capital
funds have been spent for a num-
ber of Canal improvements. These
included the widening of Caillard
Cut from 300 to 500 feet and the
lighting of the locks and the Canal
banks in restricted channels to
make possible round-the-clock tran-
sits. The conversion of the elec-
trical power system from 25 to 60
cycle current and the replacement
of cables, motors and locomotives
on the locks were also among the
improvements. During this period,
locks overhaul methods were re-
vised so that the time of lane outage
was reduced from about a month
to 4 davs.
The purpose of this current study
was to determine the scope of im-
provements which would best
develop the ultimate capacity of
the Panama Canal at the lowest

Dr. Charles Mayo was the son
of the founder of the famed Mayo
Clinic. He wrote his startlingly
candid autobiography Mayo: The
Story of My Family and My Career
shortly before his death in an auto-
mobile accident in 1968.
The book is about his family and
friends, and about his work. He
expresses his opinions, both pro-
fessional and personal, very frankly.
This is an engrossing book to read
even if you have to skip some of
the medical details.
The Waysiders by Dr. R. M. N.
Crosby is about the 10 to 15 per-
cent of all children entering first
grade who have "dyslexia" or
neurological disorders that inhibit
their ability to read. This book,
written in non-technical language,
is an effort to inform parents and
those concerned with education
about dyslexia and to stimulate
investigation of the problem.
Most of the books about De
Gaulle have focused on only one
side of this amazing man's career.
A new biography, De Gaulle by
Aidan Crawley covers the man, the
myth, the hero, and the politician.
Illustrations add to the interest.
An extraordinary first novel is
The Dorp by Frieda Arkin. The
setting is a town, Kuyper's Dorp, in
upstate New York and more than
a score of the townspeople are the
characters. An entrancing picture
of the rural community emerges
from the pages of this readable
Quicksand by Mvrick Land is a
different sort of suspense story.
A writer named Donlev has com-
pleted a cover story for a news
magazine about a congressman who
takes bribes. Before Donlev can
check his story completely it is

scheduled for publication. Then
all his sources disappear and he
realizes that he has fallen for a
frame-up and faces a suit for
slander or worse.
Death of a Dude by Rex Stout
is the latest adventure of Nero
Wolfe, who not only leaves his
house, cook, and orchids, but ac-
tually flies to Montana to join
Archie Goodwin on a lavish dude
ranch. Here they defy sheriffs and
outlaws to solve a murder by rifle
"As parents our need is to be
nededed; as teenagers their need is
not to need us. The conflict is
real; to let go when we want to
hold on requires generosity and
love-and skill." In his new book
Between Parent and Teenager Dr.
IIaim Ginnott aims to help parents
attain and use this skill. The humor
and common sense of his sugges-
tions will be welcome to parents
seeking peaceful coexistence.
The Man in the Yellow Raft is
a collection of eight short stories
by C. S. Forester, author of the
well-known IIornblower stories.
This collection is about the men
and ships of the U.S. Navy during
World War II, and one of the
stories, a very funny one, is titled
"December 6th" and is about the
Canal Zone.
As a star reporter and feature
writer for the Hearst newspapers,
Adela Rogers St. John worked
under the direct supervision of
\illiam Randolph Hearst. She
covered most of the really big
stories of the thirties, the Lind-
bergh Kidnapping Trial, the Hue)
Long assassination, the romance of
King Edward VIII and Mrs. Simp-
son. The Honeycomb is the author's
autobiography of those years and
is in itself a blockbuster of a story.

Ramel Masters, retiring soon
from the Sanitation Division where
he has worked as an inspector for
several years, was awarded a 30-
Year Safety Award recently. The
award is rather significant since
during the time he has been on the
Isthmus he has taught driving to
well over 600 adults, mostly
women, and he says he hasn't seen
a wreck yet. This apparently means
he must drive back and forth to
work with his eyes closed, a note-
worthy achievement in itself.

"Ding" Stitch, Gorgas Hospital
librarian, doubled as a "bird in a
gilded cage" last week when the
elevator she was riding in the old
hospital administration building
stalled on the second floor due to
a power failure. The latticed slid-
ing door wouldn't open, and it took
quite a bit of banging on the walls
and shaking the door before some-
one noticed Ding's predicament and
proceeded to rescue her. The moral
of this story is, when stuck in an
elevator with a sliding door, just
act naturally, and wave at every-
one that goes by, with a big smile
on your face. That way people will
become curious about what you're
smiling at, and help will be more
readily available.

Sponsored annually by the Na-
tional Education Association, the
American Legion, the National
Congress of Parents and Teachers,
and the U.S. Office of Education,
American Education Week annually
attracts more than 30 million
parents to schools.
American Education Week will
be observed throughout the United
States and in the Canal Zone, dur-
ing the week of November 9-15.
The week provides a special oppor-
tunity to recognize the tremendous
contribution which has been, and
is still being made to our national
welfare by our system of universal
public education.
Demands are being made . .
Students want education relevant
to their present I;ves and future
Teachers want an educational
system that allows them to make
the best use of their abilities and
Citizens, particularly parents,
want their schools to provide stu-
dents with education that will allow
them to function with comfort in
the society.
Businessmen want a supply of
workers who will require a mini-
mum of specialized training for
their job.

Gem Show Set
The annual show of the Canal
Zone Gem and Mineral Society will
be held Saturday and Sunday at
the Balboa Clubhouse from 9 a.m.
to 7 p.m.
The show, which is free, is de-
signed to acquaint the public with
the many different areas of lapidary
and associated hobbies. All res-
idents of the Canal Zone and the
Republic of Panama are invited to
see demonstrations of gem cutting,
the making of twisted wire jewelry
and the operation of a modern
Society members will be on hand
to answer questions and welcome
visitors. Among the exhibits will be
tumbled stones, hand polished
cabochons (stones cut in convex
forms), jewelry, and rock tables.

These demands are not easily
met, but they are not incompatible.
They reflect one common goal: that
America's schools be responsive to
those they affect.
Since everyone today is affected
by the quality of education, it is
appropriate that the theme of
American Education Week this year
be "Better Education: Your Job."

Open House Set

At C.Z. College

Prospective Canal Zone College
students and their parents can learn
more about it November 12 dur-
ing an open house at the college
featuring a panel discussion on
various aspects of the school.
The open house will be part of
the observance of American Educa-
tion Week in the Canal Zone school
The panel discussion, to be held
at 7 p.m. in Room 204, will be fol-
lowed by a question and answer
period. Panel members will be de-
partment chairmen, counselors, and
faculty members describing the
various programs of instruction and
student activities.
Student guides will be available
to conduct tours of the college cam-
pus following the discussion. Re-
freslunents will be served.
Now becoming a regular part of
student orientation, the open house
event was initiated last year during
American Education Week and is
being repeated again as an oppor-
tunity for explaining the curricula
and facilities of the college to
prospective students and the public.
The general public is invited and
classroom visitors will be welcome
during all class periods.

Tops 1970

CFC Goal
The Panama Canal organization
has swung past its assigned Com-
bined Federal Campaign goal by
reaching 110.2 percent of its goal.
According to official figures, the
entire Canal organization with
seven bureaus and staff units passed
the 100 percent mark as the annual
campaign went into the final half
of the drive for funds.
The Supply and Comnmunity
Service Bureau, which was the first
bureau to go over the top, reached
its goal on tle first day of the drive
for the 4th consecutive year. The
second bureau to meet the 100 per-
cent mark was the Marine Bureau
which met its goal the first week.
Other bureaus that have gone
over the top are the Office of the
Comptroller, Personnel, Transpor-
tation and Terminals, Engineering
and Construction, Civil Allairs, and
the Staff Units. All were over 100
percent. Only one Panama Canal
bureau has yet to meet its full goal
but it was well on its way with
nearly 90 percent.
Coming into tle last week, the en-
tire Canal Zone area, including
military and other agencies, had
reached $271,330 or 84.9 percent
of the overall campaign goal. The
campaign ends officially October 31.

cost. The study considered adding
equipment, increasing water sup-
ply, and bettering existing facilities.
An elaborate computer model
and simulation of the Canal opera-
tion was developed to determine the
number of ships which could he
transited under various modes of
operation and to evaluate the effect
of proposed improvements. No
attempt was made to forecast or
set a time schedule on thle probable
growth of traffic.
To arrive at figures for tile annual
capacity of the Canal at various
stages of improvements, it was
necessary to define the standard of
service the Canal expects to pro-
vide. This is measured by the num-
ber of hours a ship spends in Canal
Zone waters from the time it is
ready to begin transit until it leaves.
At present this averages 16 to 17
hours, which is considered satisfac-
tory for normal periods of the year
as traffic increases.
This is not the first study of
Canal improvements to increase
capacity. Most of the previous stu-
dies, however, were aimed pri-
marily at major changes such as a
sea level canal or a new locks sys-
tem to handle very large ships. In
these studies, relatively little em-
phasis was placed on the results
to be achieved by specific projects

A 1 semana de la fecha final, so-
lamente 700 de unos 2.500 perros
y 135 gatos de una possible pobla-
ci6n de 400 gatos, han sido regis-
trados en el sector Pacifico. En el

y 30 dias de circel, de acuerdo
con las Reglamentaciones de la

El Gobernador hizo notar que el

Canal tenia s6lo 5 afios cuando
estos hombres vinieron a trabajar
para ]a via interoceAnica en 1919.
"No son muchas las organizaciones
en el mundo que tienen empleados
con estas marcas de trabajo durante
tanto tiempo", recalc6 el Goberna-
dor. Diio que los cuatro empleados

El padre de Don Alfredo era
Don Benigno Andri6n, quien fue
el primer alcalde de la ciudad de
Col6n de tiempos de la Repiblica;

en el movimiento separatist de
1903 y que todavia vive, Srta.
Aminta Mel6ndez.

Don Alfredo reside desde hace
muchos afios en la ciudad de Pana-
nmi pero siempre atiende con mu-
cha cordialidad a todos los paisa-
nos colonenses que frecuentemente
lo visitan, a cuyas 6rdenes se en-
cuentra en todo moment.

Rompe Marca la Matricula

De Universiclad de Florida

La matricula de la extension de
la Universidad del Estado de Flo-
rida en la Zona del Canal para la
sesi6n de otofio termin6 el 3 de
octubre, rompiendo un nuevo "rec-
ord" que sobrepas6 en un 8% por
ciento la matricula anterior de la
sesi6n de primavera de 1969. La
matricula actual tambicn excede la
de hace 1 afio, para la misma fecha,
en un 30 por ciento.
Los funcionarios de la Univer-
sidad nos infornan que el incre-
mento de los estudiantes se debe
tanto a que la Universidad ha sido
acreditada para otorgar el titulo de
bachiller despues de 4 aios de es-
tudio, como al enfasis creciente que
el ejercito y los components civi-
les de la comunidad zoneita le estin
dando a la educaci6n universitaria
de los empleados. Ademas, el au-
mento de la matricula le ha permi-
tido a la extension ofrecer un nl-
mero y una variedad mayor de cur-
sos, que Ilenen las necesidades de

Deben Conservar Limpias

Las Residencias de Aqui


Explicando que s61o una peque-
fia minoria de residents de la Zona
del Canal es la culpable, la Divi-
si6n de Servicios Comunales estA
lanzando una campaila de limpieza
general, concentrAndose en garajes
abiertos, patios y bajos desaseados.
La mayoria de las personas que
habitan en viviendas de la empresa
del Canal de PanamA mantienen sus
residencias inmaculadas. El pro-
yecto, destinado a convertir las co-
munidades de la Zona del Canal en
models de limpieza, se concentra-
rA especialmente en aquellas per-
sonas que mantienen autos desman-
telados en Areas residenciales, que
parece que no pueden almacenar
las cosas debidamente y otras, que
son simplemente desordenadas.
(Las plants bajas a que se hace
referencia son aquellas que no tie-
nen paredes.)
El personal de los ramos de la
Vivienda y de Mantenimiento de
Predios tiene 6rdenes de observer
todo eso y de informarlo a la Divi-
si6n de Servicios Comunales. Las
personas culpables pueden esperar
una carta o hasta clue se les llame
la atenci6n.
A menos que d6n pasos condu-
centes a limpiar las areas repug-
nantes, las personas que resident en
viviendas del Canal podrAn hasta
ser sacadas de sus residencias.
De acuerdo con los Reglamentos
de la Vivienda, existed suficiente ra-
z6n para sacar a una persona de su

cia o si es descuidada al botar la
