of the U.S. Civic Councils.
Recently, the architects' drawing
of the new building was inspected
by Col. A. L. Romaneski, Director
of the Engineering and Construction
Bureau; R. P. Laverty, General
Manager of the Supply Division;
R. K. Erbe, Supply and Community
Service Director; and the Panama
Canal architects who designed it.
The new cafeteria will be a
modern one-story masonry cafeteria
type building that will serve as a
central cafeteria and production
kitchen. It will have a food service
line for the rush hours and a short
order section to supplement the
main service line.
Demolition of the old building is
expected to start early next fiscal
year and present food services will
be moved to Diablo Service Center
while the new building is under
construction. The new cafeteria is
expected to be completed about
January 1975.
The Balboa Theater and swim-
ming pool will remain in their pre-
sent location. The Diablo Service
Center will be phased out although
the building will remain and will
house other facilities.

knowledge," Governor Parker invites all residents of the Canal Zone to
join "in paying tribute to those men who, with skilled hands and minds
trained in the science of engineering, have become the pioneers of today

The Flying Scotsman, one of the world's famous trains is returning home
to Scotland aboard the "California Star" which is traveling north through
Miraflores Locks. The train, which made a tour of the United States during
the past year, is being carried as deck cargo in between the bridge and
the containers. Although it is small as train engines go these days, the
Flying Scotsman still holds the speed record it set in the 1920's between
London and Edinburgh, Scotland. Her flying days are over, however.
When at home it is housed in a museum.

Forty-nine states and 31 nations
are represented in the student body
of Canal Zone College this term.
This was among the data revealed
in a statistical report on college en-
rollment released recently by the
school's registrar, Norman B. Al-
tenberg.
During the fall semester, a total
of 1,396 students were enrolled. Of
this figure, 478 were attending on
a full-time basis and 918 were en-
rolled on a part-time basis or taking
less than 12 semester credits. In-
terestingly, the "Noah's Ark" prin-
ciple seems to apply to enrollment
figures of the college with 402
single females and 413 single males
in attendance. In the fall semester,
646 of the students were newly en-
rolled in the college, reflecting the
rapid turn-over of students in the
Canal Zone College because of
the transfer of many families from
the area each year.
Average 16 Credits
The full-time students were en-
rolled for an average of 16 semester
credits while the part-time students
were enrolled for an average of
5 credits per student. All students
were enrolled for a grand total of
11,970 semester credits. Of the
total enrollment, 226 were attend-
ing on the military tuition assistance
plan, 56 on the Panama Canal Com-
pany tuition refund plan, and 24
teachers from the Division of
Schools were enrolled on the teacher
tuition waiver policy providing free
tuition. There were 35 veterans
attending under benefits from the
GI Bill, and 32 full-time students
were attending on scholarships.
Of the 13 programs of instruction
offered at the Canal Zone College,
the largest number of students are
following a business administration
major, with 232 students in this
area. The behavioral science pro-
gram claims the next highest num-
ber of students, and the medical
technology program has increased
rapidly during the last few years
with 90 students now in this major
field. A total of 32 students are en-
rolled in the 1 year certificate pro-


gram in secretarial administration
which was introduced only last
year.
BHS Biggest Source
Balboa High School remains the
largest feeder school of the Canal
Zone College, and 443 of the stu-
dents of last fall semester had grad-
uated from that secondary school.
Cristobal High School provided 75
of the fall semester students, and
Rainbow City and Paraiso High
Schools were in third and fourth
places as secondary schools where
the college students had studied.
Of the secondary schools in the
Republic of Panama, the largest
number in attendance had graduated
from the PanAmerican Institute,
with other secondary school grad-
uates attending in this order: Insti-
tuto Justo Arosemena, Colegio Ma-
ria Inmaculada, Colegio Las Es-
clavas, Colegio La Salle, Colegio
Javier, and Colegio San Vicente.
49 States Represented
When an analysis was made of
the high schools of graduation of
the Canal Zone College students,
49 of the 50 states were repre-
sented, with Delaware being the
only state not providing a member
of the student body. The largest
state group of 47 students came
from California, with 46 from New
York, and 44 from Texas. In addi-
tion, 11 of the students came from
Puerto Rico, 1 from the District of
Columbia, and 1 from the Virgin
Islands. As an index to the inter-
national character of the college,
students had graduated from high
schools in 29 foreign countries, in-
cluding Brazil, Canada, Chile, Peo-
ples Republic of China, Colombia,
Costa Rica, Cuba, Denmark, Do-
minican Republic, Ecuador, Eng-
land, France, West Germany, East
Germany, Haiti, Honduras, Iran,
Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Nether-
lands, Nicaragua, Peru, Philippines,
Poland, Senegal Republic, South
Korea, Spain, and Switzerland.
As with many community col-
leges, the age range spread from 16
to 69 years of age, with the most
"popular" age being 18. The en-
rollment figures were also tabulated
to show citizenship of the students,
and 1,093 were U.S. citizens and
266 were Panamanian citizens. Of
the remaining group, students at-
tending were citizens of Canada,
Chile, Peoples Republic of China,
Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, England,
France, West Germany, Guatemala,
Honduras, Iran, Jamaica, Mexico,
Nicaragua, Peru, South Korea, and
Venezuela.

ican Penwomen, Canal Zone and
Panama Branch, will hold a juried

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


February 16, 1973


Chief Engineer Motor Vessels license and congratulatory handshake is
presented by Capt. Robert J. Norman, Marine Director, left, to Richard J.
Dillon of Diablo Heights. Dillon and Canute Cockburn of Colon recently
completed 4 years of training that resulted in their receiving the licenses.



2 PC Journeymen Earn


Chief Engineer Licenses


Two PanCanal journeymen, one
from each side of the Isthmus, re-
cently completed 4 years of study
and training to become qualified
towboat chief engineers.
The two are Richard J. Dillon, of
Diablo Heights, who first completed
a 4-year machinist apprenticeship
program, and Canute Cockburn, of
Colon, who served his apprentice
training as an electrician.
Cockburn became the first Pan-
amanian to receive his license as a
towboat chief engineer and will
serve at the Atlantic unit of the
Navigation Division under R. F.
Huldquist, Port Engineer in Cris-
tobal. Dillon will work on the Pa-
cific side under George T. Fitz-
gerald, Balboa Port Engineer.
Following their apprenticeship,
the two men began their engineer-
ing program as trainees, serving in
this capacity for 1 year. After that
came 1 year each as third, second
and first assistant engineer before
taking examinations that qualified
them as chief engineers. Although
some classroom work was included,
most of their preparation came
from on-the-job experience, working
under a licensed chief engineer. At
the end of each year, they had to
pass stiff examinations before they
could continue on to the next phase
of their training.
The chief engineer licenses quali-


British Residents

OF Panama Reminded

To Register for '73
All British residents in Panama
are reminded to register their names
and addresses with the Consular
Section of the Embassy (or, for res-
idents on the Atlantic side, with the
British Consulate in Colon) and to
re-register at the beginning of each
year.
Any persons who have not yet
registered for 1973 are asked to do
so not later than February 28.
Evidence of identification and Brit-
ish passport, if held, should be
produced when registering.
The offices of the Consular Sec-
tion of the Embassy are on the 5th
floor of the Chase Manhattan Bank
Building opposite the El Panama
Hotel. Office hours are from 8 a.m.
to 1 p.m. and from 2:30 p.m. to
4:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays.
The Consulate in Colon is on 9th
and Front Street, Edificio El Rey,
Office No. 9 and is open from 8:30
a.m. to 12 noon and from 1:30 p.m.
to 4:30 p.m., Mondays to Fridays.


fies Dillon and Cockburn to stand
watches on shore bases or aboard
towboats and to make running re-
pairs and perform other specialized
maintenance work. The entire fleet
of Atlantic side tugs have full moni-
toring safety watch and control sys-
tems that electronically scan the key
functions of the main engines, gen-
erator sets and auxiliaries. When a
problem develops with the engine
or other area that the captain is un-
able to handle, an engineer is called
in to find the problem and resolve it.
On the Pacific side, two of the
tugs do not yet have the monitoring
system aboard. On these vessels, a
chief engineer is always part of the
crew when it leaves port. The bal-
ance of the Pacific fleet, which is
equipped with the new system, is
serviced by engineers who are based
ashore.

Ser alg6n dia una conocida escritora
es uno de los ideales de Johanna de

de hace poco mis de 8 afios. Luego

riodismo y Relaciones Psiblicas del
mismo centro de studios. "Creo
que ese es un buen camino para lo-

si6n de Abastos trabaj6 por 9 meses

ro s6lo a ser una buena escritora",
manifiesta. "La gente del campo y
los trabajadores humildes serian las
fuentes de mis escritos", afiade,
"pues tienen un profundo sentido
human, y su permanent contact
con la naturaleza y el ambiente, los

su propio medio". Afirma sentirse
especialmente impresionada de las
cosas y las gentes sencillas. Johanna,
quien es casada con el Arq. Luis A.

Simone Pascalet, de 6 afios, y Cris-

Ilos todavia encendidos.
En su comunicado, el Jefe Daly
exhorta a los residents a que no
lancen cigarrillos encendidos por las
ventanas de los trenes o de los auto-
m6viles, sino que usen los ceniceros
provistos para apagar y botar los ci-
garrillos. Tambibn solicita que se
mantengan los f6sforos lejos del
alcance de los nifios.
Se recomienda a las personas que
se internal en Areas donde hay mu-
cha hierba a que usen el mAximo
cuidado para evitar incendios y se
llama la atenci6n sobre un articulo
del C6digo de la Zona del Canal
que dice asi: "Cualquiera persona
que de intent o por negligencia

follaje, en cualquier terreno, sera
multada por no mis de $100 o en-
carcelada por un mAximo de 30 dias,

Recomendaciones

A los Navegantes
Aunque algunos paises y gobier-
nos locales tienen disposiciones que
regulan el uso de chalecos salvavi-
das, ello, en tbrminos generals, re-
sulta algo sujeto a discreci6n del
aficionado al mar.
El Departamento de Transporte
de los Estados Unidos y la Guardia
Costera de los Estados Unidos for-
mulan una series de recomendacio-
nes en su manual "Skipper's Course"
(Manual para Capitanes).
Aunque el uso de chalecos salva-
vidas depend de la apreciaci6n per-
sonal, se recomienda que los niiios
siempre eleven chalecos salvavidas
al permanecer en la embarcaci6n.
Los niiios suelen ser inquietos y les
encanta inclinarse sobre la borda del
bote para ver las aguas. TambiBn
deben colocarse chalecos salvavidas
todas las personas, nifios o adults,
que no sepan nadar, asi como cual-
quier persona impedida fisicamente.
Cuando se crea que puede haber
mal tiempo, aunque el mar est6
claro v en calma todavia, conviene
Ilevar los chalecos salvavidas pues-
tos. Asimismo, cuando se navega en
aguas picadas o de much trifico.
Los marines profesionales, guarda-
costas v todo lobo de mar, saben
ponerse cl chaleco en un santiam6n
v todos los que navegan deben
aprender a hacerlo rnpidamente.
Todos a bordo deben asegurarse de
que los salvavidas estin listos para
pon6rselos enseguida. Antes de zar-
par, deben ponerse las correas y
mantenerlas puestas mientras estin
en el mar, por si se present la nece-
sidad de colocarse los chalecos.
La aplicaci6n de las medidas re-
comendadas podria evitar dificiles
situaciones, v ain salvar vidas.

Como Primer Maquinista De Visitas al


Dos artesanos calificados del
Canal de PanamA, terminaron re-
cientemente 4 afios de studio y
adiestramiento y se convirtieron en
primeros maquinistas de remolcador
certificados.
Son ellos Canute Cockburn, de la
ciudad de Col6n, quien hizo su
adiestramiento de aprendiz como
electricista, y Richard J. Dillon, de
Diablo Heights, quien hizo su apren-
dizaje como mecinico tornero.
Cockburn se convirti6 en el pri-
mer panamefio que recibe la licen-
cia de primer maquinista de remol-
cador y prestara servicios en la uni-
dad del AtlAntico de la Divisi6n de
Navegaci6n.
Luego de terminar su aprendizaje,
los dos hombres comenzaron su pro-
grama como maquinistas en adies-
tramiento y prestaron servicios en
esta capacidad durante 1 afio. Des-
puos, sirvieron durante 1 afio como
tercer, segundo y primer ayudante
de maquinista, en los 3 afios conse-
cutivos, antes de presentarse a exa-
menes para recibir la licencia de
primer maquinista. A pesar de que
se incluy6 algo de teoria, la mayor
parte de su experiencia provino de

las 6rdenes de un primer maquinis-
ta con licencia. Al final de cada afio,
tenian que pasar severos examenes.
La licencia de primer maquinista
califica a Cockburn y a Dillon para
cumplir turns en tierra. o a bordo
de remolcadores y efectuar repara-
ciones estando la embarcaci6n en
operaci6n y otros trabajos especiali-
zados de mantenimiento. Todos los
remolcadores de la flotilla del sector
AtlAntico poseen sistemas completes
de vigilancia de seguridad y de con-
trol, que cubren electr6nicamente
todas las funciones claves de la ma-
quinaria principal, los generadores
y motors auxiliares.
