Gatun Locks Overhaul

Closes Out This Week

The periodic overhaul of the
Gatun Locks culvert valves is being
brought to a close this. week and
the Atlantic side locks system will
return to normal operation Sunday,
April 4.
The third and final phase of the
overhaul work was started the sec-
ond week in March and consisted of
the repair and overhaul of the 16
rising stem valves and the 60 cy-
lindrical valves in the centerwall
culverts plus other repair work as
found necessary.
During the time that the Gatuni
Locks have been undergoing over-
haul, both lanes have been in oper-
ation except for short periods at the
beginning and end of each phase
when main culvert bulkheads and
lateral culvert plugs were installed
or removed. The plugs act as bulk-
heads which isolate the culverts so
that they can be pumped out to
permit work on the valves.
The first phase of the Gatun Locks
overhaul, the removal and repair of
the 20 rising stem valves in the east
wall culvert, was begun in January.
The second phase, involving the
west wall culvert valves, was fin-
ished early in March.
During the overhaul, worn parts
on the valves were removed and all
rubber seals replaced. Deteriora-'
tion that occurred since the most
recent overhaul at Gatun in 1966
was checked closely.
Because of the decrease in lock-
age capacity during overhaul, relay
lockages were conducted when nec-
essary to prevent the development
of an excessive backlog of shipping.
When valves are being over-
hauled, culverts are taken out of
service, resulting in more time re-
quired to fill and spill lock cham-
Three towing locomotives were
transferred from the Pacific side to

Army Museum

Needs "Then and

Now" Pictures
Photographs taken on Army posts
in the Canal Zone during the World
War II era are wanted for the "Then
and Now" display at the USARSO
Museum at Fort Amador. The idea
is to take a new photo from the same
angle as the old one and then dis-
play the two side by side.
"This display will give a graphic,
dramatic emphasis to the changes
that have taken place within the
Canal Zone over the years, USARSO
historian William L. Lewis ex-
plained. He added, "There must be
hundreds of veterans who have
photographs taken here before, dur-
ing, and after the World War II
A general view of a post, indi-
viduals standing in front of barracks
or other buildings, and snapshots
taken on maneuvers are typical of
the type wanted by the museum.
Lewis guarantees that all photo-
graphs will be returned to owners
in their original condition as soon as
copies are made.
Anyone having photographs which
they would like to see used are urged
to call Lewis at Fort Amador at

handle the relay lockages and to
provide an additional margin of
safety against delays due to loco-
motive repairs and maintenance.
Approximately 350 temporary em-
ployees were assigned to the over-
haul work in addition to a number
of permanent employees who were
transferred from the Pacific Locks
and Industrial Division.
The next lock overhaul scheduled
for the Panama Canal is at Mira-
flores Locks and is tentatively sched-
uled to start in January 1972. An
inspection of equipment in the cul-
verts will be made by Panama Canal
engineers and locks personnel late
this April to determine whether the
lock overhaul can be deferred until

Like it or not, Federal Income Taxes are due April 15, reminds pretty
Miss Darlene Daly of La Boca. Canal Zone taxpayers and other persons
living outside the United States are given a 2-month extension until June 15
to pay what's due the Government, but if you take that option you will owe
an extra 1 percent interest for the 2 months. Perhaps taxes wouldn't be so
difficult to pay if the.forms all had a reminder from Darlene.

"Charley's Aunt"

To Be Presented

By BHS Group
The Balboa High School Drama
Club will present Charley's Aunt, a
19th Century slapstick comedy,
April 21, 22, and 23 at the high
school auditorium. Curtain time is
8 p.m.
Set in England in the 1890's,
Charley's Aunt has been considered
by some critics as one of the funniest
comedies in the English language.
Having no real message, its subtle
humor is for amusement. Charley's
Aunt is about two Oxford students
who want to ask their girls over for
tea. Lacking a chaperone, they per-
suade a fellow student to imper-
sonate Charley's aunt. What hap-
pens during the tea party has to be
seen to be believed.
Tickets are available at the box
office the nights of the play or from
any member of the Drama Club.

Unused knowledge is merely in-
Man is not a book.

Capt. Robert K. Stanley, who joined
the Marine Bureau as a pilot-in-
training in 1969, received his un-
limited pilot's license last week and
became a full fledged Panama Canal
pilot. A native of Richwood, W. Va.,
he is a graduate of the U.S. Mer-
chant Marine Academy at Kings
Point, N.Y., and was employed with
Lykes Bros. Steamship Co. from
1958 to 1969. He and his wife, Julie,
lived in Houston, Tex., prior to
coming to the Canal Zone.

has been set for May 23; and the
March of Voluntary Sacrifice, the
last week in May.
The National Federation of Cath-
olic Women of Panama, is a branch
of the World Union of Catholic
Women's Organizations which is
supported by FAO, the United Na-
tions Food and Agriculture Organi-
zation. The federation is promoting
the campaign against hunger among
the people of Panama, asking that
they be aware of the situation and
to make efforts to eliminate all kinds
of hunger; hunger for food, for cul-
tore, and hunger for religion.
Several committees are already
working hard to create a national
conscience on the campaign, pre-
paring for the March of Voluntary
Sacrifice when the public can make
a donation. The donation will be
sent in a special envelope and

Shown are members of the Pacific Minor League all
stars who recently traveled to Chitre to play two games
against the Little Leaguers sponsored by the Panama
National Guard. The home team won both games but
the visitors from the Canal Zone were presented a

trophy and they invited the Chitre lads to another
doubleheader in the Canal Zone, which will be played
this weekend at the league park near the Balboa Rail-
road Station. The first game gets under way at 3 p.m.,
tomorrow, and the second one at 9 a.m., Sunday.

The barges were built in New Orleans by Avondale
Shipbuilding Co., and are part of the Industrial Divi-
sion's overall salvage plan for the Panama Canal. The
plan was inaugurated in 1968 following the sinking of
the super bulk carrier "Shozan Maru" in the middle of
Gaillard Cut. The 55,000-deadweight-ton ship was
refloated in 3 days.

will face the all-star Atlantic Side

gratos. Fue un hombre que s6lo vi-
via para su trabajo, al extreme que
dio la vida por l61". Troncoso gusta
much del deported y entire los que
practice se encuentran el boliche,
el f6tbol, el baloncesto y el tenis.

juntos musicals. "No pertenezco a

Las MVujeres


De acuerdo con un studio realiza-
do por la compafiia Goodyear Tire
& Rubber, las mujeres que condu-
cen autom6viles hacen durar las
Ilantas much mAs que los hom-
bres. Las mujeres pueden manejar
alrededor de 16.000 kms. mAs que
los hombres con la misma llanta.
Se ha demostrado que las mujeres
pueden manejar unos 45.000 kms.
antes que tengan que cambiar las
llantas. Los hombres deben canm-
biarlas al llegar a los 32.000 y en
algunos casos no pueden pasar los
20.000 kms.


Todos estamos familiarizados con
una cantidad de letreros que llaman
nuestra atenci6n sobre los animals
que cruzan las calls, las carrete-
ras, etc. En Suiza acaba de apare-
cer uno completamente nuevo, pre-
viniendo a los conductores sobre el
peligro que constituyen las ranas
que se cruzan en las carreteras. En
ciertas 6pocas del afio, cuando el
tiempo esti muy h6medo, las ranas
son un serio peligro para los con-
ductores en ese pals.
