Ship Data Bank
Tells All About

Transiting Ships
Every ship that has used the
Panama Canal since July 1, 1972
has been assigned a special num-
ber which is kept in a prominent
place in the vessel's radio room
and is used in all communication
with the Canal.
This number identifies the ship
to a computer system called Ship
Data Bank which goes into opera-
tion next month.
Processed daily on computers,
the bank provides Canal personnel
with the timely information neces-
sary to carry out its varied func-
tions. It also accumulates a mass
of data for selective analysis of
information on every ship using
the waterway permanently stored
in the computer's memory banks.
Nucleus of the system is the Ship
Master File which is divided into
information on ship characteristics
and ship activity.
Ship characteristics information
includes such items as description
of the ship, identification and gen-
eral data, dimensions, capacity and
tonnage, operating characteristics,
Panama Canal port and transit re-
quirements, and an extra section
for remarks on any exceptional ship
handling characteristics.
The activity section includes one
"computer record" for each transit
or port call the ship makes. Each
record has space for recording cus-
toms and quarantine data, transit
time, lockage intervals, pilot's eva-
luation of the ship, tolls and other
charges, cargo statistics and even
the origin, destination and weight
of every item of cargo carried.
Automatic determination of the
Panama Canal transit requirements
is another feature of the new sys-
tem. Based on the ship's size, sum-
mer displacement and bridge loca-
tion, the computer determines the
number of pilots, towing locomo-

PC Rushes 75,000 Ibs. of Onions

To Relieve Shortage in Panama

A rush shipment of onions, pur-
chased in New Orleans and trans-
ported to the Isthmus by the Pan-
ama Canal organization aboard the
SS Cristobal, will help to relieve a
current shortage of the product on
the Panama market caused by the
recent drought.
Acting on a call from the U.S.
Ambassador to Panama for the Min-
istry of Agriculture requesting that
the Canal organization sell up to
100,000 pounds of onions to the
Panama Government, Supply Divi-
sion personnel relayed the request
by phone to New Orleans. That

Mt. Hope Turnaround

To Eliminate Hazard
To eliminate the potentially
hazardous situation of buses and
vehicles backing into traffic to turn-
around, a one-way turnaround is
being built at the northeast corner
of the Bolivar Highway-Wilson
Street intersection at Mount Hope.
In addition to the turnaround,
parking for six vehicles is being
created in this area.
These improvements will pro-
vide a U-shaped driveway for
buses and other vehicles to turn-
around by performing the com-
plete maneuver in a forward one-
way direction only.
In addition to the improvements
at Mount Hope, other Atlantic side
traffic changes include the installa-
tion of a yield sign at the north-
west corner of the intersection of
McEwen Street and Runway Road,
Coco Solo, giving the right-of-way
to vehicles on Runway Road. Also
the curb located northeast of Build-
ing 1303, Cristobal, is to be painted
yellow to prohibit parking near the
intersection of Fifth and Columbus

quantity represents a 2 to 3 months
supply for Canal Zone retail stores.
The Procurement Division in
New Orleans canvassed all sup-
pliers in the area but were able to
purchase only 63,000 pounds. They
were rushed to the piers just in
time to be loaded aboard the Cris-
tobal, which sailed for the Canal
Zone on September 15 and arrived
at Cristobal on Tuesday, Septem-
ber 19.
Another 12,000 pounds of onions
were added to the shipment from
stock on hand in the Canal Zone
for a total of 75,000 pounds. The
onions were turned over to the
Ministry of Agriculture on Tuesday

A goal of $325,044 has been set
by the 1973 Combined Federal

campaign conducted by the U.S.
Government agencies on the Isth-

ternational Service Agencies. This

The Canal Zone United Fund
has requested from the Combined
Federal Campaign a total of

1.64 Inches of Rain

Fell in 34 Minutes
In case anyone had any doubts
that the long dry spell had been
broken, the rainstorm that caught
lunch hour travelers Tuesday di-
spelled them.
As Panama Canal employees re-
turned to work shortly before 1
p.m., Tuesday, a storm swept over
the mountains from the Atlantic
side of the Isthmus and dumped
1.64 inches of rain on Balboa in
34 minutes.
According to the weatherman,
this was no record for a September
rain at Balboa Heights. There were
heavier half hour and hour rains
in 1920 and 1968. But it was good
enough for those who arrived with
wet feet and soaked clothing.
In addition to the rain there
were maximum gusts of wind meas-
ured at 27 miles per hour and blind-
ing flashes of lightning. The storm
swept out to sea in about an hour.


Helping to unload part of the shipment of 75,000 pounds of onions from
a Panama Railroad freight car into a waiting truck for delivery to Panama
are Gustavo R. GonzAlez, left, director general of marketing in the Panama
Ministry of Agriculture, and Bart J. Elich, Panama Canal merchandising
manager. GonzAlez accepted the onions on behalf of the Ministry.

The idea of a once-a-year, one-
time solicitation among Federal
employees and members of the
Armed Forces, has been welcomed
and endorsed by employees and
service personnel in the past. As a

" PanCanal Transit

Glomar IV, an off-shore drilling
rig, passed through the Canal Mon-
day, September 18 for the first time
en route from Aberdeen, Scotland,
to Korea by way of Honolulu. Al-
though the Glomar IV is classified
as a self-propelled off-shore drill
rig, she was making the long trip
nearly all the way around the
world in tow of the tug Channel
The Glomar IV is part of a fleet
of drill rigs that have passed

She is owned by the Global Ma-

Artist E. J. Read Captured Spirit of Canal Construction

A collection of oils and water
colors by noted artist E. J. Read,
who came to the Canal Zone during
the last days of the construction
period is currently on display at the
Canal Zone Library Museum.
When Read arrived on the Isth-
mus at the beginning of 1913 the
success of the Panama Canal was
no longer in doubt. There was still
a great deal of activity in "making
the dirt fly" and the Canal was
near enough to completion to have
attained distinctive form and char-
acter. It was the right time for an
artist to record his impressions.
Culebra, perched precariously on
the west bank of Culebra Cut, was
headquarters for Colonel Goethals,
Chief Engineer. It afforded some
of the most impressive views of the
operations. Drill rigs, steam shovels,
relays of dirt trains, and hundreds

of laborers were constantly in ac-
tion in the Cut. No wonder Read
was drawn to this area first.
From Culebra, Read carried his
easel to various vantage points.
With his "East India Helmet" to
protect him from the dry season
sun, he painted the views of the
Cut from north and south, from
the heights and from the bottom of
the Cut. He returned a year later
to paint in the same area but now
there was water in the Cut and
dredges and barges were coping
with landslides. The paintings
done a year apart offer an interest-
ing contrast.
Read also was attracted by other
local scenes, not only of the Canal
works but of things typical of Pan-
ama at that time. The latter helped
to establish the atmosphere of the
time. Fourteen of Read's Isthmian

watercolors were reproduced as
color illustrations in Willis J.
Abbot's "Panama and the Canal in
Picture and Prose" (1913).
Elmer Joseph Read (1862-1939)
was born in Howard, N.Y., and
spent his childhood in Methodist
country parsonages. He graduated
from the College of Fine Arts,
Syracuse University in 1886 and
then traveled and studied in Eu-
rope. On his return he was direc-
tor of the art department at Penn-
sylvania State Normal College at
Millersville. Later, he went to
Syracuse as professor of free-hand
drawing and sketching.
In the fall of 1895, he estab-
lished a studio on 23d Street, New
York City. There he did portrait
painting and illustrating for mag-
azines and books. His Panama
paintings were exhibited at the

Arlington galleries in New York.
From 1914 to 1926 he maintained
a studio in Rutherford, N.J. Illness
subsequently forced his retirement.
During his later years he painted
in the Bahamas where there was
much to attract a watercolorist, as
well as blue seas to offer a chal-
lenge to the skill of the maker of
color block prints.
His last work, 6 months before
he died, was to design for his alma
mater a memorial plaque in honor
of a good friend and well-loved

Mrs. Ora L. Claxton, reference li-
brarian, is shown with part of a
display of 28 original works of art

BHS Graduate

Earns Masters
Walter G. Brown, Jr., a graduate
of Balboa High School class of
1961, was recently awarded a mas-
ter's degree in economics from the
University of Florida, in Gains-
ville. His master's thesis was on the
Panama Canal and its impact upon
the Republic of Panama. Brown
came to the Isthmus before writing
his thesis to obtain first hand in-
After graduating from the Uni-
versity of Florida, Brown entered
the U.S. Air Force and took flight
training at Craig, AFB, Ala. After
graduation as a pilot, he remained
at Craig as an instructor pilot.
Upon discharge from the Air Force
with the rank of captain, Brown re-
sumed his studies at the university.
Brown's father, a third genera-
tion Canal employee, retired from
Canal service in the Industrial Di-
vision in 1970. Both the father and
the grandfather of the senior
Walter G. Brown were construc-
tion day employees.
Walter Jr. has recently taken a
position with Maas Brothers in
Tampa, Fla.

Not long out of college, he met
the pioneer woman flyer, Ruth
Elder, when she visited the Isth-

but separated not too long after-
Womack then took off for the
South Pole with the first Byrd ex-
pedition on which he said he did
everything from shovel coal to
drive the doggies. Next came a
year with a lion farm in California
where he rode herd on some 176
African beasts and gave lectures on
the subject to visiting tourists.
When Womack returned to the
Isthmus, he took an active part in
the foundation of the famous beer
gardens on the Pacific side. He
built Panama City's El Rancho and
lived upstairs with his second wife
and family. After selling the Ran-
cho to the Milwaukee Brewery in
1936, he returned to California.
In 1940, Womack took a job with
the Panama Canal Dredging Divi-
sion managing the mess facilities
for the floating equipment. In 1944,
he shifted to hyacinth control and
became knows as the "hyacinth
man." He remained here until 1953
when he resigned and returned to
the West Coast. Recently he had
been living in Oregon at 1390
Loper Avenue, Prineville. 97754.

En la Pequeiia Galeria Hay

Una Exposici6n Hist6rica

En la Pequefia Galeria del Edi-
ficio de Asuntos Civiles de Anc6n,
se estAn exhibiendo los cuadros de
Elmer Joseph Read, uno de los pin-
tores que con mas realismo capt6
la grandiosidad de las obras, cuan-
do se acercaba a su trrmino la epo-
peya de la Construcci6n del Canal
de PanamA.
Quizas el artist E. J. Read no
lo calcul6, pero indudablemente
que lleg6 en el moment mAs opor-
tuno al Istmo de PanamA para plas-
mar en pintura los excepcionales
cuadros que constituyen fiel testi-
monio de una Apoca en que el hom-
bre culminaba esa gran maravilla
del mundo que es el Canal de
Read lleg6 al Istmo a principios
de 1913 cuando no habia duda al-
guna de que el Canal de PanamA
seria un Axito. Pero su arribo fue lo
suficientemente oportuno como
para reproducir en el lienzo y para
la posteridad la fase final de la cons-
trucci6n de la via interoceanica.
Al Ilegar Read en 1903, el po-
blado de Culebra, peligrosamente
situado a la orilla del Corte del
mismo nombre, era el cuartel prin-
cipal del Coronel Goethals, Inge-
niero jefe de la obra.
Desde el poblado de Culebra se
apreciaban impresionantes vistas y

la intense actividad del equipo de
perforaci6n, palas a vapor, los
enormes trenes de vagones de vol-
quete y centenares de obreros, que
fueron plasmados por Read en sus
artisticas pinturas.
De Culebra, Read llev6 su caba-
Ilete de pintor a lugares estrategi-
cos. Con un casco tropical para
protegerse del inclemente sol, Read
pint6 vistas del Corte desde el
norte y desde el sur, desde lo alto y
desde el fondo de las excavaciones.
Al regresar, un afio mis tarde, para
pintar la misma Area, el panorama
habia cambiado considerablemen-
te. Habia agua en el Corte y las
dragas y barcazas luchaban contra
los frecuentes derrumbes de ese
Otros paisajes del PanamA de
ayer atrajeron a Read, cuyas acua-
relas a color fueron reproducidas
en el libro de Willis J. Abbot,
PanamA y el Canal en Ilustracio-
nes y Prosa (1913).
Elmer Joseph Read (1862-1939)
naci6 en Howard, Nueva York, y
pas6 su infancia en rectorias rura-
les de a lesia Metodista. Se gra-
du6 en la Escuela de Bellas Artes
en la Universidad de Syracuse en
1886 y luego viai6 y estudi6 en
Europa. A su regreso fue nombra-
do director del Departamento de
Arte de la Universidad Normal del
Estado de Pennsylvania, en Millers-
vile. Luego se traslad6 a Syracuse
como professor de dibujo a pulso y
En 1895 estableci6 un studio
en la calle 23 de la ciudad de
Nueva York, done se dedic6 a
pintar retratos e ilustraciones para
revistas y libros.
Las pinturas de Read sobre Pa-
namA fueron exhibidas en las Ga-
lerias Arlington en Nueva York.
De 1914 a 1916 mantuvo un estu-
dio en Rutherford, Nueva Jersey.
Luego debi6 jubilarse por enfer-
medad. En los afios siguientes pin-
t6 en las Bahamas, cuyas atraccio-
nes fueron excelente element de
inspiraci6n para Read.
Su iltima obra, terminada 6 me-
ses antes de morir, fue el disefio
de una placa conmemorativa en
honor de un buen amigo y muy
apreciado professor.

Se Active el Programa de

Orientacidn en R. City

Como parte de las actividades
celebradas en la Escuela Secunda-
ria de Rainbow City, bajo la coor-
dinaci6n de la jefa del Programa
de Orientaci6n, Profesora Beryl
Jordan, se dictaron recientemente
dos interesantes conferencias a los
estudiantes de ese establecimiento
Una de las charlas vers6 sobre
"El Buen Comportamiento dentro
y fuera de la Escuela". Fue dicta-
da por Alexis Errol, en la actuali-
dad official correctional de la Peni-
tenciaria de Gamboa.
Alexis dijo a los j6venes estu-
diantes que escucharon su diserta-
ci6n, que el irrespeto a las leyes y
ordenanzas escolares puede indu-
cir al estudiante a llevar dicha ac-
titud negative ante la sociedad, con
las funestas consecuencias que ello
Al prevenir a los estudiantes
contra la prActica de incumplir las
disposiciones y reglamentos de sus
respectivos planteles, Alexis sub-
ray6 el peligro de que en la socie-
dad los j6venes cometan faltas gra-
ves, Ilegando adn hasta a los peores
Dijo que si una persona que de-
linque es aprehendida por la ley,
Ilega generalmente a ser analizada
por un psic6logo, un soci6logo, un
psiquiatra y un crimin6logo, y ex-
plic6 el papel que desempefiaria
cada professional en la future orien-
taci6n del sujeto.
El orador puntualiz6 que la vida
es un process continue y que, en

de las comunidades de Paraiso y
Pedro Miguel, que declamarin
poesias escogidas, mientras que el
conjunto de baile de cuadrillas de
la comunidad de Santa Cruz ofre-
cera algunos do sus mejores bailes.
Se invita a los residents de to-
das las comunidades latinoameri-
canas a esta noche de cultural y
muy en particular a los residents
de Santa Cruz, pues, aparte del
gocc spiritual que sentiran, apren-
deran a conocerse y relacionarse
mis estrechamente entire si.

consecuencia, los j6venes debian
realizar un esfuerzo tratando de
comportarse en mejor forma. Una
conduct antisocial, acot6, podria
perpetuarse en el individuo consti-
tuy6ndose en un obstaculo para el
progress que todos anhelan ante
la sociedad.
Con 30 afios al servicio del De-
partamento de Policia de la Zona
del Canal, el conferenciante pre-
sent6 con claridad los peligros a
que se aboca el estudiante que
hace de la transgresi6n a las dispo-
siciones escolares y de las leyes que
rigen la sociedad, una parte inte-
gral de su conduct.
Alexis es en la actualidad estu-
diante de la Universidad de Flori-
da, Extensi6n de la Zona del Canal,
en donde realize studios sobre
Criminologia y Correcci6n.
Hace 2 afios, tratando de profun-
dizar sus conocimientos sobre la
material, Alexis visit la Peniten-
ciaria de Sing Sing, en Nueva
York; la instituci6n correctional de
Chino, California; la prisi6n de
San Quintin; la Facultad de Co-
rreccidn para J6venes Delincuen-
tes de Monterrey; la conocida Pri-
siAn de Soledad, y otras mAs. Ade-
mAs realize un curso de verano en
la Universidad de California,
La otra charla fue dictada por
la Srta. Joycelyn Dixon, maestra
de la Isla de Jamaica, quien estuvo
de visit en PanamA recientemente.
La Srta. Dixon explic6 a los es-
tudiantes interesantes aspects so-
bre Jamaica, incluyendo nociones
sobre sus simbolos patriots, ahon-
dando sobre el sistema escolar vi-
gente en la isla.
Dijo la maestra Dixon que la en-
scfianza en su pais se basa en el
idioma ingl6s, sefialando ademis
diferencias en el sistema de pro-
mociones y en otros aspects.
Explic6, profundizando sobre las
promociones, que estas son en Ja-
maica much mis selectivas, de-
bi6ndose aprobar previamente una
series de exAmenes para ascender
de un grado a otro y de un nivel a
otro. Observ6, asimismo, que el sis-
tema rige igualmente en la escuela
primaria que en la secundaria.
