New Container Service

Four representatives of the Trio
Alliance, a consortium of British,
German, and Japanese shipowners
formed to promote container service
between Europe and the Far East,
conferred last week with Panama
Canal officials on details of the new
service that will bring 950-foot con-
tainer ships through the Canal at
the end of this year.
Headed by Albrecht Otte, of
Hapag Lloyd, the delegation in-

new ships will have a service speed
of 26 knots and a container capacity
of between 1,850 to 2,200 con-
tainers. Service will start in Decem-
ber 1971 with the Kamrakura Maru
of the NYK Line. By the end of

North Continent of Europe, Eng-
land, and the Far East. Each ship
will pass through the Canal between
5 and 6 times per year.
The new vessels will be the larg-
est to transit the Panama Canal. Up
to now the record has been held by
the former German passenger liner
Bremen that measured 936.8 feet
overall and had a beam of 101.9 feet.
The three Ben Line container ships
will be 947.04 feet in length. The
five Overseas Container Line ships
will be 950 feet in length; the four
Hapag Lloyd container ships will
be about 943 feet in length; the
three NYK ships will be 855 feet in
length; and the two Mitsui-OSK
ships will be 855 and 883 feet in
length. All ships will have beams
in excess of 105 feet.
It has been estimated that two of
these giants will pass through the
Canal each week when all the new
vessels are in service.

Up to 20 Minutes

Phone Cutover Will Mean

Short Break in Service

Telephone subscribers whose lines
work out of the Balboa Heights and
Pedro Miguel telephone exchanges
will be without telephone service
briefly late August 20 when the cut-
over is made to the new Balboa cen-
tral exchange.
The cutover will begin at about
midnight and service will be pro-
vided to all customers as soon as
possible. The interruption is ex-
pected to last up to 20 minutes. Tele-
phone officials ask subscribers linked
to the new exchange to make only
calls that are absolutely necessary
during the first several days after
the cutover.
Immediately after the cutover

period, Gamboa and Atlantic side
customers will be able to call among
their own exchanges but are asked
to make as few calls as possible into
the new Balboa exchange and the
Republic of Panama. Workmen will
concentrate on restoring service first
to hospitals, police, fire departments,
Marine Traffic Control, the locks,
and all business and commercial
lines. Next, service will be restored
to residential lines. Repair crews
will be working to restore service to
all subscribers as quickly as possible.
Subscribers whose telephones do
not work Saturday morning should
report their trouble from another
telephone to repair service, 113, or
go to the new Balboa telephone
office, Building 69, where a clerk
will be on duty from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Balboa and Pedro Miguel sub-
scribers will know that cutover has
occurred by a melodious dial tone
instead of the present raspy tone
In no instance, after the cutover
is made, should old Balboa and Pe-
dro Miguel numbers be used for
dialing. They will not work and a
busy tone will be received. Callers
should refer to the new telephone
directory for dialing instructions and
the new numbers. Distribution of
the new directories began August 6.
Temporary number service will be
established to serve Panama City
and Colon for about :30 days after
cutover to help subscribers in these
areas to get numbers in the new
Balboa central office only. A tele-
phone operator will provide the new
number if the old number is known
but will give no other information.
To get this service, Panama sub-
scribers should call 62-6566 and
Colon customers should call 47-3600.

Beach Party Tonight

The end of vacation get-together
for young adults will be a beach
dance sponsored by the unified

itary, and young adults between the
ages of 17 and 24 are invited. Ad-

waste, because memorizing is made
more valuable than thinking.

Children's Play 4 PC Pilots Receive

Will CloseOut Unlimited Licenses

This Weekend

Heading south through Gatun Locks is the "Thomas E. Cuffe" a new
LASH ship which made her first transit of the Canal recently. The 820-foot
vessel was named after the founder of the Pacific Far East Line which plans
five more LASH vessels that will soon join the company fleet.

The last two performances of
"Richard Harding Bush or Rococo
Coco Bean," a play written espe-
cially for children, will be given
1 p.m. tomorrow in the Paraiso
Theater and 1 p.m., Sunday, in the
Ancon Theatre Guild.
Admission is $0.25 for children
and $0.50 for adults.
The play is sponsored by the
Canal Zone Youth Council and fea-
tures a 15-member cast of Canal
Zone high school and college stu-
dents which has been touring the
Isthmus, giving performances at
various townsites.
The fantasy takes place in the
17th century "in the royal gardens
of the royal palace of the royal
Kingdom of Twitchenberg." It stars
Paul Willenborg as the villain Inigo
Snurl and Steve Jolmson as Richard
Harding Bush.

5 Sister Ships To Follow Balboa YMCA

New LASH Vessel Makes Offers Course
S- , W, ,I In Sewing

first Iransit ot Waterway

The Thomas E. Cuffe, one of the
new LASH (Lighter Aboard Ship)
ships, made her maiden voyage
through the Panama Canal recently
on her way from New Orleans to
San Francisco.
The $60 million vessel has a
typical LASH design, a length of
820 feet and a beam of 100 feet.
Named after the founder of the Pa-
cific Far East Line, the Thomas E.
Cuffe will inaugurate the line's U.S.
west coast to Orient LASH service
in commemoration of the 25th an-
niversary of the foundation of the
company. Five more LASH vessels
will go through the Canal to join the
company fleet soon.
4 PC Pilots
Because of her size, the Panama
Canal put four pilots aboard. The
transit was made smoothly without
incident and pilots reported the
vessel easy to navigate primarily be-
cause the bridge was well forward.
This was not the first ship of this
type to go through the Canal and
certainly not the last. The LASH
vessels were designed with the Pan-
ama Canal passage in mind. Two
others were the 850-foot Arcadia
Forest and her sister ship, the At-
lantic Forest. They were built in
Japan and registered in Norway.
The Thomas E. Cuffe is one of
the few U.S. registered LASH ships.
The first was the LASH Italia which
entered the Prudential Grace Line
European service last January. Like
the Thomas E. ( i,,i . it was built at
Avondale Shipyards Inc., in Avon-
dale, La. She was followed by four
sister ships all from the same yard-


the LASH Tiirkiye, LASH EspaFia,
LASH Hellas, and LASH Portugal.
18 Year's Research
The LASH system is the result of
an 18-year research effort by Jerome
L. Goldman, president of Friede &
Goldman, Inc., marine architects
from New Orleans. The purpose of
his study was to design more pro-
ductive cargo liners by reducing in-
port time to a minimum. With this
system the LASH ships do not neces-
sarily have to dock, since they can
have their lighters delivered by tug
while at anchor in the stream.
Most LASH vessels are distinc-
tive with the bridge and deck crew
quarters in the forward part of the
ship while the engineroom and en-
gineer's quarters are in the after part
of the ship. Heavy crane rails run
from near the forecastle to the end
of the specially rigged stern. These
carry the special container crane and
the heavy LASH crane.
One tug can handle several light-
ers that are 61 feet in length, 31 feet
in beam and have a maximum draft
of 8 feet, a bale capacity of 19,500
cubic feet, and a deadweight capac-
ity of 375 long tons.
Fast Load-Unload
Experts say that the loading is
interesting since the vessels will call
at a number of ports on regular serv-
ice and is a first-on-last-off system
that must be carefully planned. The
load-unload cycle takes 15 minutes,
which means four lighters, or 1,468
tons of cargo, per hour.
The San Francisco based Pacific
Far East Line, which uses the blue
and gold colors of the University of
California and the stack insignia of
the California bear, was founded in
1946 by Thomas E. Cuffe to provide
trans-Pacific U.S. flag service.
Initially, PFEL's five vessels were
purchased to supplement the char-
tered fleet. Within 4 years, the com-
pany was operating some 50 vessels.
The company decided in 1967 to
embark on a multimillion-dollar
program to expand its trans-Pacific
fleet by adding six LASH vessels.
In addition, the line is acquiring two
new van ships and has purchased
two passenger liners and two

The Environmental Protection
Agency now monitors levels of trit-
ium, the radioactive form of hydro-
gen, in water throughout the United
States and in Central America and
both major oceans.
EPA's new Tritium Surveillance
System collects and analyzes for
tritium content samples of water
obtained at 116 locations in the
Canal Zone, 50 States, the District
of Columbia, and the islands of
Guam in the Pacific, and Puerto
Rico in the Atlantic.
Surface water from streams and
lakes and drinking water from taps
is being sampled once every 3
months, chiefly with the assistance
of state or local health agencies.
Samples of rain and other precip-
itation are being obtained monthly.
Analysis of data obtained through
the Tritium Surveillance System will
provide the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency with an information
basis for evaluating the significance
of future changes in environmental
tritium levels. EPA radiation author-
ities point out, however, that present
environmental tritium levels, includ-
ing levels of tritium in water in the
vicinity of nuclear power generating
plants, result in an estimated radia-
tion dose, to persons consuming this
water, of only a small fraction of
the radiation protection maximum
recommended by the former Fed-
eral Radiation Council.
Water containing tritium, if con-
sumed, is distributed throughout
the body. While this distributive
process dilutes the radioactive sub-
stance, it also exposes more tissue

Too many breaths before diving
underwater can cause a blackout
and possible drowning, warns the
American Red Cross.
Children and adults who like to
compete to see how long they can
stay under water should keep this
in mind.
Deep breathing can cause hyper-
ventilation, the term used to de-
scribe the condition created by an
excessive rate and depth of respira-
tion leading to abnormal loss of
carbon dioxide in the blood.
When a swimmer hyperventilates,
he increases his breath-holding time
by blowing off carbon dioxide in his
blood. When the carbon dioxide
content is lowered, bodily functions
are altered and mental confusion
can result.
If a person attempts to swim
underwater for a long period after
hyperventilating, a considerable
amount of time may elapse before
the carbon dioxide level, which has
been reduced by the deep breathing,
will provide a strong stimulus to
resume breathing. The oxygen level
in the body may also be lowered to
a point where the swimmer will lose
consciousness before he feels the
urge to breathe.
When a blackout occurs after
hyperventilation, the swimmer will
drown unless there is someone
around to assist him to the surface.

swer to the question of mini, midi,

to possible harmful effects, includ-
ing genetic damage, if consumed in
excessive amounts.
In selecting geographical loca-
tions at which water samples are
obtained, consideration was given to
regional environmental monitoring
needs which might arise either from
existing nuclear plant operations or
from nuclear plants under construc-
tion or planned through 1975.

Richard Burgoon

Hurls No-Hitter

In Pro League
A Balboa High School graduate
who is now playing professional
baseball with the Bradenton, Fla.,
Pirates of the Florida Gulf Coast
league recently pitched a no-hit
game, the first no-hitter of the
league's 1971 season.
Richard Burgeon, Jr., son of Mr.
and Mrs. Richard 0. Burgoon, Sr.,
of Balboa, hurled his no-hitter as
the Pirates blanked the Indians, 2-0.
The big right-hander struck out nine
and issued 10 walks. He threw
mostly fast balls, according to a re-
port in the SARASOTA (Fla.) HEUALD-
TmIBUNE. He stranded nine and his
victory snapped a seven-game win-
ning streak for the Indians.
Burgoon signed a contract to play
with the Pittsburgh Pirates farm
team after finishing high school this
spring. When the baseball season
ends, he will attend Manatee Junior
College in Bradenton on a baseball
college scholarship provided by the
Pittsburgh Pirates. He also received
a cash bonus to play on the farm

Amy Joyce Saldaiia es ayudante es-
tudiantil al servicio de la Oficina de
Servicios Sociales de la Direcci6n
de Personal. Dice que alli le toca
efectuar trabajo general de oficina.
"Es dificil de comprender lo intere-
sante que es trabajar en una oficina
como esa. Todo lo que se hace alli
tiene que ver con el mejoramiento
de las comunidades y de las fami-
lias de este sector. Por la misma
esencia del trabajo que alli se reali-
za, consider que es vital para las
comunidades y de gran impact para
las families de la Zona del Canal",
dice cuando se le pide que comente
acerca de la secci6n del Canal de
Panama donde presta servicios y ter-
mina diciendo: "Todos los que tra-
bajan alli son magnificas personas y
consider que fue una suerte para
mi haber sido asignada a dicha ofi-
cina". La Srta. Saldafia naci6 en la
ciudad de PanamA hace unos 20
afios. Su educaci6n primaria la cur-
s6 en la Escuela Rep6blica de Fran-
cia. Dice: "Funcionaba por las tar-
des en el edificio donde se encuentra
la Escuela Repbblica de Chile, pero
ahora han creado la Escuela Rep-i-
blica de Chile NQ 1 y la N. 2, que
funciona por la tarde, por lo que la
Repiblica de Francia desapareci6".
Agrega, como rememorando los fe-
lices dias de su nifiez: "No s6 cual
escuela Ileva ahora el nombre de
aquella donde hice mis primeros es-
tudios". La secundaria la curs6 en
la Escuela Profesional Isabel He-
rrera Obaldia. Y nuevamente habla
con much entusiasmo y carifio de
su escuela, calificindola como "el
mejor plantel secundario official de
la ciudad". En el pr6ximo otofio in-
gresarA al segundo aiio de Adminis-
traci6n de Negocios en el North-
wood Institute en Dallas, Texas.
Piensa, cuando obtenga su licencia-
tura, obtener su grado de maestria,
con especializaci6n en Administra-
ci6n de Personal. En su colegio per-
tenece a la Hermandad Tau Delta

mover las relaciones entire alumnas

Los Exploradores de Pedro

Miguel Inaugurrann Sede

L - Muy pronto serA inaugurado for-
1by malmente en Pedro Miguel el edi-
/ ficio sede de la Tropa 11 de los Ex-
ploradores Internacionales de la
Zona del Canal.
S Los lideres e integrantes de ese
grupo de j6venes de Pedro Miguel
S han estado trabajando arduamente
S en la renovaci6n interior del edificio
durante las iltimas semanas, contan-
do con la valiosa ayuda de los pa-
dres de familiar. Ya se estAn dando
los 6ltimos toques y para que la co-

munidad entera se d6 cuenta del
trabajo realizado, el president del
comit6 que ha estado a cargo de los
trabajos, Claude Burgess, ha citado
para una reunion, el mi6rcoles 18
de agosto, que se iniciara a las 7:30
p.m., en el mismo edificio de la
Tropa 11. A esa reunion estin invi-
tados, muy especialmente, los pa-
dres de familiar.
Es muy probable que en el curso
de dicha reunion se fije el dia de la
inauguraci6n formal del edificio.

Las voluntarias recientemente honradas en un t6 ofre-
cido por el Servicio de Enfermeria del Hospital Gorgas,
son, de izquierda a derecha: Lisa Makibbin, Peggy Hall,
Betsy Aquin, Judy Evans, Pati MacLaren, Elena P6rez,

semana cuando todos los nuevos
barcos esten en servicio.

SI BIEN es una prActica de
seguridad aceptada el amarrar bien
los cilindros de oxigeno y acetileno,
a fin de evitar que se tambaleen y
caigan, con el peligro de que la vAl-
vula se rompa, sin embargo siempre
ha habido algtina duda sobre lo que
sucederia exactamente al romperse
la vAlvula de un cilindro. Para los
que se hayan hecho esta pregunta
he aqui lo que sucedi6 en una oca-

daria de Balboa

Besen a su Esposa

Y Vivirin Mas
Durante 2 afios se ha estudiado
en Alemania la influencia que tiene
el besar a la esposa a la maifana
antes de ir al trabajo.
Aquellos que no besan a su espo-
sa tienden a star deprimidos, ser
variables y faltos de interns en su
trabajo. El esposo que besa a su se-
iiora comienza su dia de trabajo con
una actitud mAs positive que se re-
fieja en todas sus actividades; serA
mejor conductor hacia el trabajo y
mis querido en la oficina. La venta-
ja mayor es, posiblemente, la exten-
si6n del t-rmino medio de vida en
unos 5 afios. Si en lugar de besar a
su esposa, besan a la esposa del ve-
cino el panorama puede cambiar
completamente. *

Seis cilindros de di6xido de car-
bono, que formaban parte de un
sistema de extinguidores, fueron
movidos para pintar el lugar. Uno
de los pintores estaba poniendo uno
en su lugar cuando not6 que el ci-
lindro estaba perdiendo, en ese mo-
mento lo tenia sobre su hombro e
iba a colocarlo en el suelo cuando
la vAlvula se solt6 y salt6 hacia
atras, golpeando un armario de ace-
ro que habia en el lugar. El cilindro
se transform en un cohete con el
pintor arriba (Nota: no se supo co-
mo se dani el cilindro, pero es pro-
bable qune lo dac quien lo 1IneIjd
previamnente). Rod6 por el piso, gol-
pe6 otro cilindro, lo derrib6, se dio
vuelta, choc6 contra un andamio
he hizo caer al pintor desde una al-
tura de 2m., el que result con frac-
turas multiples en las piernas. Des-
pu6s de girar varias veces el cilin-
dro volvi6 al punto de partida, cho-
cando con la pared, se dio vuelta
atravesando la habitaci6n a lo lar-
go, persiguiendo a un electricista
que estaba adelante, choc6 contra
el extreme de una pared que estaba
a 12m, rompiendo cuatro bloques
de concrete, se dio vuelta otra vez
y rod6 por la abertura de una puer-
ta, persiguiendo aun al electricista.
Finalmente cay6 en un pozo. Se de-
j6 salir el rest de la presi6n mien-
tras el cilindro giraba sin peligro en
el pozo.

davia tienen dudas sobre lo que pa-

Ajuste su Cinturon

Y Asegure su Vida
Un studio llevado a cabo por
Cornell Automotive Crash Injury
Research ha indicado que cuando
durante un accident la gente es
arrojada del vehiculo, el riesgo de
una muerte instantAnea aumenta en
un 3.000 por ciento, el riesgo de una
herida grave en un 900 por ciento y
el de cualquier herida en un 400 por
Este studio ha demostrado tam-
bicn que el mis alto porcentaje de
las heridas correspond a aquellos
accidents en que los vehiculos se
vuelcan, el caso mis peligroso, y
en el cual las personas son arroja-
das del vehiculo con mis frecuencia.

Barco LASH Transito . . .
(Viene de la pdgina 1)

de un esfuerzo de 18 afios de inves-
tigaciones por Jerome L. Goldman,
president de Friede & Goldman,
Inc., arquitectos maritimos de Nue-
va Orleans. El prop6sito de su estu-
dio fue el de diseflar transatlanticos
de carga mas productivos reducien-
do el tiempo en puerto al minimo.
Con este sistema los barcos LASH
no tienen necesariamente que atra-
car, ya que pueden hacer que sus
barcazas sean entregadas por remol-
cador mientras estin anclados.
La mayoria de los barcos LASH
se caracterizan por tener el puente
y los camarotes de cubierta para la
tripulaci6n en la parte delantera del
barco, mientras que el cuarto de mA-
quinas y los camarotes de los maqui-
nistas estan situados en la parte de
atrAs del barco. Rieles para grtias
pesadas van desde cerca del castillo
de proa hasta el fin de la especial-
mente aparejada popa. Estos Ilevan
a la gruia especial de furg6n y la
pesada gnia LASH.
Un remolcador puede hacerse
cargo de varias de estas barcazas
que tienen 61 pies de largo y 31
pies de ancho y tienen un calado
miximo de 8 pies, una capacidad
en fardo de 19.500 pies cuibicos, y
una capacidad de peso muerto de
375 toneladas largas.
Los experts dicen que la acci6n
de cargar es interesante, ya que los
navios Ilegarin a various puertos en
servicio regular v es un sistema "del

Premios Anuales de Seguridad fueron entregados re-
cientemente por el Director Interino de Ingenieria y
Constrncci6n a empleados de la Divisi6n Industrial.
Esta es la primera entrega de Premios Anuales de Segu-
ridad a esta division desde su incorporaci6n a la Direc-
ci6n de Ingenieria y Construcci6n. Se entregaron laves
de oro a Efrain A. Spaing, Joseph N. Gill y George R.
Williams, por llevar a cabo trabajos arriesgados durante
30 dias sin lesi6n alguna causante de incapacidad. Otras
entregas de premios de seguridad fueron para supervi-
sores, unidades y para aquellos que completaron el
Curso de Adiestramiento de Seguridad para Superviso-
res. A. L. Gallin, Jefe de la Divisi6n Industrial, complete
oficialmente el Curso de Adiestramiento de Seguridad
y recibi6 su certificado de manos de R. Hauth, Funcio-
nario de Seguridad de la Direcci6n de Ingenieria y

que debe ser planeado cuidadosa-
mente. El ciclo de cargar y descar-
gar toma 15 minutes, que significa
cuatro barcazas, o 1.468 tonelarlas
de carga por hora.
La Pacific Far East Line, con sede
en San Francisco, qne usa los colo-
res azul v oro de la Universidad de
California y el pabell6n insignia de
California, fue fundada en 1946 por
Thomas E. Cuffe para proporcionar
servicio a travys del Pacifico de
Estados Unidos.
Inicialmente, los cinco barcos de
la Linea fueron comprados para su-
plementar la flota fletada. A los
4 aflos, la compaflia estaba operando
tnos 50 barcos.
La compaflia decidi6 en 1967 em-
barcarse en un program multimi-
llonario para extender su flota
transpacifica agregando seis barcos
LASII. Ademas, la linea esti adqui-
riendo dos nuevos barcos furgones v
ha comprado dos transatlanticos de
pasajeros y dos cargueros.
