E&C Project of the Month

Traditional programs will be
conducted on both sides of the Isth-
mus May 1, which has been pro-
claimed Law Day in the Canal Zone
by Gov. David S. Parker.
Ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m.
in the U.S. district courtroom at
Ancon and Magistrate's court in
Principal speakers will be Cen.
W. B. Rosson, Commander in Chief,
U.S. Southern Command, on the
Pacific side, and attorney E. J.
Berger on the Atlantic side. The
Presidential proclamation will be
read in Ancon by Henry Newell,
president of the Canal Zone Bar
Association, and in Cristobal by
attorney Samuel T. Frankel.
Governor Parker's proclamation
will be read by J. Patrick Conley,
Executive Secretary of the Canal
Zone, at the Pacific side ceremony
and by John H. Diaz, clerk of the
magistrate's court, on the Atlantic
side. Introductory remarks will be
made by U.S. District Judge Guthrie
F. Crowe in Ancon and by Magis-

periodically drained and sterilized.

Water and Laboratories Branch Tests

New Water Purification Procedure

A procedure that could upgrade
the already high quality drinking
water produced in the Canal Zone
is being tested by the Water and
Laboratories Branch of the Main-
tenance Division.
The tests, designated the Project
of the Month for the Engineering
and Construction Bureau, are highly
technical processes being carried
out on all the water supplied by the
Mount Hope Filtration Plant to
Atlantic side communities in the
Canal Zone and the City of Colon.
About 25 percent of the water proc-
essed at the Miraflores Filtration
Plant for distribution to Panama
City and the Pacific side of the
Canal Zone is included in the tests.
If, after considerable testing and
evaluation, the new procedure re-
sults in substantial improvements
in water quality, it will be installed
throughout the entire Panama Canal
water system.
Past test procedures and quality
standards used in the Canal Zone
comply with U.S. Public Health
Service laws related to water used
in interstate commerce. But con-
cepts in water treatment are chang-
ing through advancing technology.
Recently, the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) recom-
mended a specified level of chlorine
to insure against chance contamina-
tion and to kill harmful bacteria and
other types of undesirable orga-
nisms. Though not a binding regula-
tion, this recommendation is the
focal point of the studies being
made by the Water and Labora-
tories Branch.
As a result, the water being
tested is receiving a larger quantity
of chlorine than before. And, where
the additional chlorine is being
used, another ingredient previously
used-ammonia-is being withheld.
Should the new procedure be
applied to the entire system, an

outlay of some $500,000 will be re-
quired for new chlorine feeding
equipment and other apparatus.
Since the testing began several
months ago, consumers whose water
is receiving increased chlorine may
have noticed a slight change in the
taste and odor. Those most likely
to detect the difference live nearest
to the filtration plants. Part of the
testing now being conducted is di-
rected at combating the odor and
difference in taste.
Aside from the chlorine factor,
traditional steps in purification of
water in the Canal Zone, including
the use of chemicals, remain the
same as before the testing began.
First, raw water is carried into
the filtration plants from intakes on
Gatun Lake behind Fort Gulick, on
the Atlantic side, and at Paraiso
and Gamboa on the Pacific side.
From the intake, it is aerated, a
process used to remove dissolved
gases, such as carbon dioxide and
hydrogen sulfide, to replenish the
oxygen supply and to remove odors
due to decomposition of micro-
scopic organisms. The water is
sprayed into the air and then
allowed to flow by gravity to the
next stage of treatment.

Continuous laboratory testing is
required at the Miraflores Filtra-
tion Plant. Paul F. Noran, super-
intendent, Miraflores Filter Plant,
pours sample of water for testing.

Next, the chlorine is added via
chlorinators to the incoming raw
water for disinfectant purposes to
kill bacteria that are present.
Lump aluminum sulphate, com-
monly known as alum, is added as
the water passes into baffled mixing
basins, flowing in a zig-zag pattern
over and under a series of parti-
tions. The alum serves as a coagu-
lant and can form gelatinous par-

More than 40 years of U.S. Gov-
ernment service, all of it with the
Panama Canal telephone system,
has been completed by Howard S.
Engelke, Chief of the Communica-
tions Branch, who retired from

For his work in coordinating and
planning for the successful cutover
to the new Balboa Central Office
and his highly successful manage-
ment of the Communications Branch
reorganization, Engelke received an
Outstanding Performance Award in
1971, and a Special Achievement

to his retirement, he was given a
certificate of appreciation for years
of devotion and dedication to his
work and his community.
Presented by his boss, Col. A. L.
Romaneski, Engineering and Con-
struction Director, the citation ac-
companing the award also gave
him a commendation for his many
years of active community service
as an official and team manager and
as an original planner and organizer
of Little League baseball in the
Canal Zone.
A member of a large and well-
known Canal Zone family, Engelke
is the son of a former Canal em-
ployee and was born in Ancon, now
Gorgas Hospital. He attended the
Canal Zone schools and took a
4-year apprenticeship as a switch-
man in the telephone department.
He began his work in the Commu-
nications Branch in 1937 as a tele-
phone installer, was promoted to
wire chief in Balboa in 1945 and to
general foreman of the telephone
system in the Southern District in
1951. He has been Chief of the
Communications Branch since 1955.

Fines Imposed 25th Anniversary

Of Stamp Club
For Trespassing To Be Observed

In Canal Stores

The Canal Zone Customs Divi-
sion has reported an increase re-
cently in the number of unauthor-
ized persons arrested for trespass-
ing in Panama Canal retail stores.
In many cases the unauthorized per-
sons were in the stores with friends
or relatives who have full Canal
Zone purchase authority but who
did not know or claimed to be un-
aware that the stores were posted
against trespassing.
Fines of up to $50 have been
levied against the unauthorized per-
sons and administrative actions such
as warning letters, cancellation of
purchase authority, or suspensions
from work without pay, have been
taken against the employees or de-
pendents permitting the unauthor-
ized persons to accompany them
into the stores.
Panama Canal Company retail
stores are clearly posted at each en-
trance with "No Trespassing" signs
warning unauthorized persons that
they may not enter under penalty
of law. Unauthorized persons in-
clude employees holding "jobsite"
cards only.
The fact that patrons are not re-
quired to show their purchase
authority cards at the entrance to
the stores does not relieve un-
authorized persons from being sub-
ject to arrest after apprehension by
Canal Zone Government Contra-
band Inspectors who work both in-
side and outside the stores.

Art Work Available
Could your office or shop use
some brightening up? There is a
large untapped resource of art work
available to you, on loan, at no cost.
The art students at Balboa, Cris-
tobal, Curundu, Paraiso, and Rain-
bow City Junior-Senior High schools
will be honored to have their works
displayed in the various Panama
Canal Company-Canal Zone Gov-
ernment offices. Call the school
principal who will put you in con-
tact with the person with whom
arrangements can be made.

The 25th Anniversary of the
Caribbean Stamp Club of the Canal
Zone will be celebrated at the
May 1 meeting..Present will be some
of the early founding members such
as Hugh Cassibry, past president,
and Grover D. Luce, current treas-
urer. Earliest members of the club
also include such professionals as
Carlos Patterson, founder of the
Sociedad Filatalica y NumismAtica
de Panama.
In connection with the anniver-
sary celebration, a special get-to-
gether will be made welcoming
Richard Salz, president of the Canal
Zone Study Group, who will be
visiting the Isthmus between May 5
and 6.
The Caribbean Stamp Club re-
cently became Chapter 2 of the
Canal Zone Study Group, as an
affiliated unit.
Details of the visit by Salz will
be announced at the May 1 meet-
ing. The club meets every first and
third Tuesday, 7:30 p.m., in the
auditorium of the Jewish Welfare
Board-USO building, La Boca
Road, Balboa, C.Z.
There was no meeting, April 17,
due to the Jewish Passover holi-
day, when the JWB-USO build-
ing was closed.
Auction nights are usually on the
first Tuesday of the month.

under a system of laws and inde-
pendent courts that protects indi-
vidual freedom and makes possible
a free society.
"This year the theme for LAW
DAY is 'Help Your Courts-Assure
Justice.' Of the three separate but
equal branches of our government,
this year we concentrate on the role
of the judicial branch-our courts.
The courts do not make laws; that
is the function of legislative bodies.
Nor do they initiate law enforce-
ment; that power belongs to the
executive branch. Rather, our courts
exist to interpret the laws, to apply
them fairly to all citizens, to resolve
disputes in an orderly fashion, to
protect the spirit of the U.S. Con-
stitution, and to serve as guardians
of individual rights and liberty.
S. Parker, Governor of the Canal
Zone, do hereby proclaim Tues-
day, May 1, 1973, LAW DAY
throughout the Canal Zone. It is
my hope that all Canal Zone res-
idents will recognize the tremend-
ous responsibility we have to one
another to preserve our legacy of
freedom and justice-a respon-
sibility to obey the law, to support
the agencies of law enforcement
and the courts, and to join in efforts
to utilize the resources of law to
improve the quality of life for all.
In particular, I call upon the Canal
Zone community to join in the ob-
servance of LAW DAY through
appropriate ceremonies, programs
and educational activities."

tides or "floc" that absorb impuri-
ties. Powdered, black carbon also
is added to remove tastes and odors
that may still be in the water.
The liquid travels to sedimenta-
tion basins next where paddles or
flocculators gently agitate the water
and bring the small floe into con-
tact with each other to form heavier
particles that are easily visible to
the naked eye. As they grow, they
settle to the bottom of the basins.
Periodically, the basins are drained,
cleaned and sterilized to control
algae growth before being placed
back into service.
After this, the water enters closed
conduits to the filters where fine,
remaining impurities can be re-
moved. Entering the filter beds, the
water passes through 30 inches of
graded Chame sand, which re-
moves remaining foreign matter
and discharges the water into a well
beneath the plant. This water, fin-
ally, is potable and can be used for
human consumption, but to pro-
vide a margin of safety, chlorine is
added during the period it remains
in reservoirs and distribution lines.
Sodium silico fluoride is added to
all water leaving the plant as a den-
tal aid, to eliminate or reduce dental

Gente en la Noticia

La segunda experiencia de Jacque-
line Weeks dentro del Programa de
Ayudantes Estudiantiles de las Es-
cuelas Latinoamericanas, ha sido
tan agradable e instructive como la
primera, hace 1 aiio, en que labor
para la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento.
En esta oportunidad, la simpitica
Jacqueline trabaja para el Ramo de
la Vivienda en Crist6bal, de cuyos
empleados tiene la mejor opinion.
"Son muv alegres, y sobre todo
muy atentos", sefiala al referirse a
sus compafieros de trabajo. En el
Ramo de la Vivienda hace "de todo
un poco", aunque la mayor parte
del tiempo lo dedica a cooperar en
el process de censos de los residen-
tes de la Zona del Canal. Graduada
de secundaria en el Colegio Abel
Bravo de Col6n, Jacqueline ingre-
s6 en 1971 a la Escuela de Servi-
cio Social de la Facultad de Admi-
nistraci6n Piblica y Comercio de
la Universidad de Panama, pero
un afio mis tarde se decidi6 por
la carrera diplomAtica. Reconoce
una relative vocaci6n por el servi-
cio social, pero siente predilecci6n
por la diplomacia, ramo en donde
espera destacar algin dia y reprc-
sentar a Panama en algun pais im-
portante. Mientras estuvo en el Abel
Bravo particip6 en el grupo de
Acci6n Cat6lica del plantel, cola-
borando con la Iglesia de la Vir-
gen del Carmen, en diversas acti-
vidades con fines ben6ficos. Tam-
bi6n fue miembro del Club de Es-
pafiol del colegio, representando a
su sal6n en la directive y colabo-
rando en actividades como la Se-
mana del Idioma y la edici6n del
folleto del Departamento de Es-
paiiol, con el prop6sito de promo-
ver el mejor uso del idioma. Como
dirigente del Club de Espailol le
toc6 visitar varias veces la sede de
la Academia Panamefia de la Len-
gua, y conocer mas a fondo sobre
la organizaci6n de la Academia de

James A. Loulan Regresa

Despues de Casi 60 Anos

Las aguas del Chagres, seguin
reza la leyenda, surtieron su efecto
en James A. Loulan, Jr., quien re-
gres6 al Istmo despues de 60 alios,
para visitar los lugares donde pas6
su juventud.
Hijo de James A. Loulan, Sr., uno
de los constructores del Canal, lleg6
al Istmo en uni6n de su familiar y
asisti6 aqui a la escuela. Se gradu6
de secundaria en 1914, cuando la
Escuela Secundaria estaba en An-
c6n. Parti6 de PanamA en agosto de
ese afio, a bordo del vapor Panamd,
el dia despu6s que el Ancdn hiciera
el primer trinsito por el reci6n
abierto Canal.
Teniendo su residencia en pue-
blos de la construcci6n, el padre
de Loulan era superintendent de
construcci6n en el primer distrito
de la Divisi6n del Pacifico. Estaba
a cargo de las canteras y del dique
seco en el sector Pacifico y fue su
division la que prepare las bases
del Edificio de Administraci6n de
Balboa Heights.
Ademis de su padre, Loulan tuvo
un tio que trabaj6 en la excavaci6n
del nuevo Canal. Era Frank L.
Loulan, operario de pala a vapor
que lleg6 al Istmo en 1905.
Despu6s que parti6 de PanamA,
Loulan se mud6 a Nueva York,
asisti6 a la universidad y luego fue
empleado por la Goodyear Tire &
Rubber Co., como jefe del depar-
tamento de desarrollo en Akron,
Ohio. Ya esta jubilado.
Junto con su esposa, que nunca
habia visitado Panama, Loulan hizo
una gira por PanamA v la Zona del
Canal y visit el Edificio de Admi-
nistraci6n. Tambi6n conoci6 al hijo

Howard S. Engelke, Jefe del
Ramo de Comunicaciones (foto en
la secci6n inglesa), ha cumplido mds
de 40 afios de servicio al Canal de
PanamA y todos los ha trabajado
con el sistema telef6nico del Canal.
Durante los afios.que han pasado,
desde que comenz6 con el Canal de
PanamA en calidad de aprendiz en
1932, Engelke ha visto crecer el sis-
tema de comunicaciones a la par
con las crecientes necesidades de la

Proyecto del Mes-Mejorar el Agua Potable

Aparte del factor cloro, los pasos
tradicionales de la purificaci6n del
agua en la Zona del Canal, incluso
el uso de elements quimicos, per-
manecen los mismos que antes de
que comenzaran las pruebas.
Primero, el agua sin tratar es
Ilevada a las plants purificadoras
desde las tomas en el Lago Gat6n,
detrAs de Fuerte Gulick, en el sec-
tor AtlAntico, y en Paraiso y Gam-
boa, en el sector Pacifico. De alli
se somete a aeraci6n, process que
sirve para disolver los gases que
Ileva el agua, tales como di6xido
de carbon y sulfuro de hidr6geno,
para aumentarle la cantidad de
oxigeno y quitarle los olores debi-
dos a la descomposici6n de orga-
nismos inicrosc6picos. El agua es
rociada en el aire y luego se la deja
fluir por gravedad hacia la siguien-
te etapa del tratamiento.
A continuaci6n, se afiade el clo-
ro por medio de aparatos especia-
les al agua cruda que va entrando,

(Viene de la pdgina 1)
con el fin de matar las bacteria
que se encuentren dentro de ella.
A media que el agua va pasan-
do a los tanques de mezcla y de-
flexi6n, se le afiaden terrones de
sulfato de aluminio, conocido co-
munmente como alumbre. En di-
chos tanques el agua fluye en zig
zag, por arriba y por debajo de una
series de tabiques. El alumbre sirve
como coagulante y forma particu-
las gelatinosas, o "copos" que ab-
sorben las impurezas. Tambien se
afiade carb6n vegetal active en
polvo con el fin de remover sabo-
res y olores extrafios que puedan
estar todavia en el agua.
El liquid viaja luego a los tan-
ques de sedimentaci6n, done es
agitado suavemente por paletas o
"floculadores", con lo que los pe-
quefios copos de alumbre se juntan
y forman particular mAs pesadas,
fAcilmente visible a simple vista.
A media que crecen van asentAn-
dose en el fondo de los tanques.

Peri6dicamente se saca el agua de
los tanques que se limpian y este-
rilizan para controlar el crecimien-
to de algas dentro de ellos, antes
de ponerlos en servicio.
Despuds de esta operaci6n, el
agua entra por conductos cerrados
a los filtros donde se le quitan las
impurezas que contiene.
Al entrar a los filtros, el agua
pasa a trav6s de 30 pulgadas de
arena de Chame de diferente gro-
sor, con lo que se extraen las par-
ticulas extrafias que todavia le
quedan y cae en un pozo que que-
da debajo de la plant purificadora.
Finalmente, el agua se ha conver-
tido en agua potable y buena para
ser tomada por los humans, pero
para proporcionar margen adicional
de seguridad, se le afiade cloro du-
rante el period en que permanece
en los tanques y en las lines de
A toda el agua que sale de la
plant se le agrega silicon fluoruro
de sodio como protecci6n a la den-
tadura de los residents, pues con
ello se elimina o disminuve la caries
dental entire los niiios. El fluoruro
es agregado por una mAquina espe-
cial, cuando el agua ya purificada
sale de la plant purificadora.
La Planta de Miraflores produce
unos 45 millones de galones al dia,
pero puede producer mas de 50 mi-
llones cuando la demand aumenta
en la estaci6n seca. La de Mount
Hope tiene una producci6n de 15
millones de galones.

Engelke recibi6 el Premio por
Desempefio Sobresaliente en el Tra-
bajo, en 1971, debido a su admira-
ble labor al coordinar y planear el
cambio efectuado con todo 6xito, de
la vieja a la nueva Central Telef6-
nica de Balboa, y por su muy exito-
so manejo de la reorganizaci6n del
Ramo de Comurficaciones. En 1972,
le fue otorgado el Premio por Lo-
gros Especiales. Este mes, antes de
so jubilaci6n, se le entreg6 un cer-
tificado de agradecimiento por sus
afios de consagraci6n al trabajo y
al beneficio de la comunidad.
El certificado, junto con el premio,
le fue entregada por su jefe, el Co-
ronel Albert L. Romaneski, Direc-
tor de Ingenieria y Construcci6n, y
hace menci6n de sus muchos afios
de servicio a la comunidad como
official, director de equipos y uno
de los proyectistas y organizadores
originales de la Pequefia Liga de
Beisbol de la Zona del Canal.
Miembro de una numerosa y
mu), conocida familiar de la Zona
del Canal, Engelke, hijo de un em-
pleado del Canal, naci6 en el viejo
Hospital Anc6n, hoy Hospital Gor-
gas. Asisti6 a escuelas de la Zona
del Canal y tom6 un curso de apren-
dizaje de 4 afios como operario de
centrales en el departamento de te-
16fonos. En 1937, comenz6 a traba-
jar en el Ramo de Comunicaciones
como instalador de telkfonos. Fue
ascendido a jefe de lines en Bal-
boa en 1945 y a capataz general del
sistema telef6nico en el Distrito Sur,
en 1951. Ha sido Jefe del Ramo de
Conunicaciones desde 1955.
Engelke y su esposa piensan de-
far el Istmo a fines de mes, para ir
a establecer su residencia en Ar-
kansas, Estados Unidos de America.
Antes de su partida del Istmo,
los esposos Engelke serAn agasaja-
dos por entidades, families e indi-
viduos que les demostrarAn su agra-
decimiento por su labor a benefi-
cio de la comunidad.
