Thatcher Ferry Bridge

Accident Rate Drops

Frequent users of the Thatcher
Ferry Bridge during the past few
years have noticed several modifica-
tions to the posted signs and the
roadway itself. What they may not
know is that since those changes
were made there have been fewer
accidents despite an increase in
From August 1973, when the
work was completed, to August
1974, there was a reduction of 18.1
percent in the accident rate on the
bridge and the approaches over
the previous 12-month period. Dur-
ing the sane time, traffic using the
bridge increased by 33 percent.
Perhaps more important, there
have been fewer serious accidents.
In 1972, there were three fatalities;
in 1973, there was one; and in
1974, there was none.
The Engineering Division began
designing the improvements early
in 1972, and the Maintenance and
Electrical divisions and a local con-
tractor did the work.
As the project was carried out,
overhead signs were installed to
direct slow-moving traffic to the
right lane and traffic traveling be-

School Hour

Changes Now

Being Studied
The question of a straight-through
day for some elementary schools on
an experimental basis will be dis-
cussed January 14 by the Governor's
Advisory Committee on Education
(GACOE). Later a public meeting
will be held on the matter.
The straight-through lay for the
elementary schools has been a topic
of local interest for a number of
years. During the past winter's fuel
crisis many suggestions on how to
save fuel were received by the Su-
perintendent of Schools' Office and
several persons suggested eliminat-
ing busing elementary children
home at noon.
A regular at-school lunch period
could not easily be provided for all
children because the elementary
schools do not have dining areas,
kitchens, cafeterias, refrigeration, or
drink-dispensing facilities, or any
plans for these facilities. In view of
this, it was suggested that the I
hour and 15-minute lunch period be
shortened and an earlier dismissal
time in the afternoon be permitted.
The plan of the straight-through l
day schedule is 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
with no change in instructional time
for students nor the amount of time
that teachers are on duty. A short
snack period in the classroom for
the children to eat would be
included in the schedule.
The Division of Schools, with the
concurrence of CACOE, decided to
have selected elementary schools in
a specific area pilot a straight-
through day for a limited period of
time, provided there is sufficient in-
terest and agreement among the
parents, teachers and children and
transportation could be provided
without adverse effects upon the
remainder of the schools.
The principals and teachers were
surveyed for interest and transporta-
tion representatives were contacted
to determine if transportation could
le provided for the 8 a.m. to 1:30
(Continued on p. 4)

tween 30 and 40 miles per hour to
the left lane. Directional overhead
signs were installed on the east bank
indicating the proper lane for access
to the Fort Amnador off-ramp, Aveni-
da de los Poetas and Fourth of July
Avenue. Thirty-three signs deter-
mined to be superfluous were re-
On the roadway itself, raised
pavement markers were installed to
delineate the lanes, a left-turn lane
was constructed at the intersection
of Farfan Road, and the entrance to
the overlook area on the west bank
of the Canal was modified.

Gov. Parker

To Open 1975

UW Auto Show
Gov. David S. Parker will open
the annual United Way Auto Show
on Thursday, January 16, at the Bal-
boa Skating Rink on Diablo Road.
The show will continue through
Sunday, January 19.
Automobile agencies in Panama
will display their latest models in-
cluding a number of economy cars.
In addition, Panama boat agencies
will have their latest model crafts
on exhibit.
The auto show will be open from
5 to 10 p.m. on Thursday and Fri-
(lay and from 2:30 to 10 p.m. on
Saturday and Sunday.
There is ample outside space
available for agencies in Panama
that wish to exhibit farm equipment
or other kind of equipment that re-
quires a large outdoor area.
Anyone interested in displaying
automobiles, boats and equipment
may call Rogelio Quintero, tele-
phone 23-0139, or R. W. Chesson,
52-6227, cochairmen for the event.
Residents of Panama and the
Canal Zone are invited to attend
the display.


Are Made in

Two cost- of - living increases,
granted July 1, 1974, and January 1,
1975, for Federal retirees will be
reduced bv 1/10 of 1 percent each
because of a reduction in the pre-
viously reported Consumer Price
Index by the Bureau of Labor Sta-
The Civil Service Commission an-
nounced the cost-of-living increase
which became effective July 1,
1974, will be reduced from the pre-
viously announced 6.4 percent to
6.3 percent, and the increase which
became effective January 1, 1975,
will be reduced from 7.4 percent to
7.3 percent.
Recovery of the small overpay-
ments, about $1 per month in most
cases, to annuitants resulting from
the July 1, 1974, increase will be
waived for the period of July 1,
1974, through December 31, 1974.
Further overpayments resulting from
the July increase but made for the
months of January, February and
March 1975 will occur because of
tinw needed to make changes in
computer programs. These overpay-
ments will be recovered through
small reductions in checks delivered
May 1. A complete explanation will
lte sent to each annuitant as soon as
Civil service annuity increases are
tied to the Consumer Price Index
published by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics. The July 1, 1974, annuity
increase was based on the April
1974 CPI report and the January 1
increase was based on the October
1974 report.
On December 6, 1974, the Bu-
reau of Labor Statistics discovered
and announced that an error had
been made in the April CPI report
and the error thus hifluenced each
subsequent CPI report.

Wrapped in plastic for protection from the elements, an unusual cargo of
trolley cars transits the Canal aboard the "Goldstone," bound for Portland,
Oreg. Built in 1920 by the J. G. Brill Co. of Philadelphia, Pa., the cars
were first used in Portugal and recently purchased for use by the City of
Portland. Earlier, the City of Yakima, Wash., purchased some sister cars
for use in the city's bicentennial celebration.

Electrical Division Works

On Xmas Day Emergency

A contingent of Panama Canal
Electrical Division personnel worked
through Christmas to locate and re-
pair electrical cable damage that
left residents of Fort Sherman with
only a minimal emergency power
At about 10 a.m. on Decem-
ber 24, a relay tripped at Gatun
Hlydroelectric Station, alerting per-
sonnel on duty that there was
trouble along the 6.9 kilovolt cable
supplying power to Fort Sherman.
The Mount Hope Field Office im-
mediately dispatched maintenance
crews to locate the damage.
The cable runs through swampy
terrain, which meant it would be
difficult and time-consuming to find
and eliminate the problem. So
other Electrical Division employees

Zone Residents

Help to Reduce

Use of Energy
If the amount of energy con-
seruied in employee housing during
the first quarter of fiscal year 1974
is a portent of things to come, Canal
Zone residents will do more than
their share in achieving President
Ford's goal: to hold energy con-
sumption to a level 15 percent below
the amount consumed in fiscal year
In the months July through Octo-
ber 1974, employees used 5,521
tewer megawatt hours of electricity
than in the same period in 197:3 for
a 13.2 percent reduction.
Dr. Horace C. Loftin, the Canal
organization's Energy Conservation
Coordinator, has come up with a
list of ideas that will help residents
of Canal Zonet townsites to meet or
surpass the President's goal.
Beginning next weCk, the SPILL-
w.ay will publish these easy-to-do
energy sa\lrs for users of refrigera-
tors, freezer, electric ranges, dish-
\\aslhrs, sw'ater heaters, and washers
and (dr\ ers.

helped personnel of the U.S. Army
Facilities Engineer connect a 400-
kilowatt emergency generator lo-
cated at Battery Pratt to the main
system. This ensured that residents
would at least have light and re-
frigeration for Christmas Eve.
By late afternoon the trouble was
known to lie in one 3,800-foot sec-
tion of cable, along the road to Fort
Sherman, but the exact location was
still unknown. Those Electrical Di-
vision personnel involved would
have to report for work at 7 a.m.
on Christmas Day.
Work continued on Christmas
until nightfall without results. One
bright spot in the day was the hot
turkey dinner the Army provided
those working in the field.
The day after Christmas found
the men hard at work again. They
located the trouble spot, repaired
the damage, and were ready to re-
store power when they discovered
that another section of the cable
had been damaged. That damage
was located behind the Tarponl
Clul, near the Gatun spillway.
BRepairs were completed by 7:30
that night, and full power was re-
stored to the Fort Sherman area.
)ue to the outstanding coopera-
tion between Electrical Divisiio
employees and U.S. Army personnel
throughout the period of crisis, the
task was accomplished promptly\ and
with a minimum of inconvenience
to Fort Sherman residents.

A 21-year-old bachelor arrived
in Panama in 1907 to help build the
Panama Canal.
Sixty-seven years later, Thomas
J. Ebdon-now the patriarch of a
large and well-known Canal Zone
family-returned to the Isthmus for
a holiday reunion.
Almost forgotten were the 24
ears that had. passed since 1950
when, with 4:31: years of service, he
retired with the longest period of
continuous service of any Canal
employee to that date.

As his family and friends gathered
around him, he remembered ant
talked about the important days in
his life:
. . . his first sight of land as the

docked at Old Pier in Colon;
. . . the pride he felt standing
alongside General Coethals on the
gate at Catun as the SS Ancon lx--
gan her first trip through the Pan-
ama Canal;
S. . the exhilaration of being a
passenger on the Ancon as she made
the return trip from Balboa to Cris-
lie showed his family a very old
photograph taken during one of
President Teddy Roosevelt's visits
to the Canal Zone, and pointed out
13-\ear-old Emma Ashton, later to
become his wife, as she gazed up
at the President standing on a loco-
motive operated bY her father, Wil-
liam Ashton.
Emma and Tom had three sons,
two of whom went to work for and
retired from the Canal organization.

lighting that permits round-the-
clock Canal operations, and the
ever-increasing size of the transit-
ing ships.
Looking over what he called "an

Ha Disminuido el Volumen

De Accidents en el Puente

Quienes han usado con frecuencia
el Puente Thatcher en los illtimos
ainos habrin observado various cam-
bios en las sefiales ubicadas en la
carretera y en la propia via. Pero
lo que quizAis no sepan es que a
media que se han introducido es-
tas modificaciones se han ido produ-
ciendo menos accidents, a pesar del
creciente transito de vehiculos.
Desde agosto de 1973, cuando
fueron concluidos los cambios en
las sefiales y en la carretera, hasta
el mes de agosto de 1974, se pro-
dujo un promedio de 18.1 por ciento
menos accidents de trAnsito en
la carretera a alturas del puente,
que en el period correspondiente
del anio anterior. Durante el mismo
tiempo, el trinsito en el puente
aument6 en 33 por ciento.
QuizAis lo ms important es que
se han registrado accidents menos

Durante Navidad

Empleados de Electriciad

relevo se present a la Planta Hi-
drocl6ctrica de Gatin, para comuni-
car al personal de servicio que habia
problems en el cable de 6.9 kilo-
voltios que abastece de energia
electrica a Fuerte Sherman. La Ofi-
cina de Mount Hope envi6 de in-
mediato a cuadrillas de manteni-
miento para buscar el da(io.
El cable corre a lo largo de terrc-
no pantanoso, lo cual indujo a pen-
sar que la tarea costaria much tiem-
po. Entonces otros empleados de la
Division de Electricidad se sumaron
a personal d Instalaciones de In-
genieria del Ej6rcito, para conectar
n generacdor de emergencia de 400
kilovatios al sistema principal. Ello

Si lat cantidad de energia ahorrada
por los mllpleados en sus hogares
(huralite el primer trimestre del aio
fiscal 1974 ces ln presagio para lo
que habri de ocurrir en el futuro,
cntonces los residents de la Zona
del Canal harlin much masl de lo
(qu les correspond, seg6n la meta
fijada por el Pr esidente (erald Ford:
lleduicir el consuno tde energia en
15 por eiento bajo la cantidad con-
sumida en el an o fiscal 1973.
Eln los mess de julio a octubre de
1974, los empleados consumieron
5,521 megawatts de electricidad
menos (qcie el mismo period del aino
pasado, para lograr una baja del
13.2 por ciento.
1l Dr. Horace C. Loftin, Coordi-
nador de Ahorro de Energia en la
empresa del Canal, ha concebido
una cantidad de ideas quie avudarln
a los residents de comunidades de
la Zona del Canal a superar la meta
establecida por el Presidente.
A partir de esta semana el SPILL-
wv.\ publicaira estas recomendacio-
nes para ahorrar energia mediante el
uso mais rational de refrigeradoras-
congeladores, artefactos el6ctricos,
secadoras de plata, calentadores de
agua y lavadoras-secadoras.
Para comenzar, h6 aqui algunos
consejos sore el uso mas adecuado
de la refrigeradora-congelador:
-Disminuva en lo possible el tiem-
po en qie "la puerta permanezca
abierta. Ello reducirA el tiemlpo de
funcionamiento del compressor, lo
(que redundanr en ahorro de energia.
-No vuelva a congelar alimentos
descongelados. En caso de emergen-
cia, los alimentos pueden volverse a
congelar si aim estan fines \v ailn
hav eristales de hielo; no obstante,
estos alimentos deben consumirse
tan pronto como sea posille.
-Los alimentos que se venden
congelados estin debidamente em-
pacados. Los alimentos para ser con-
gelados en casa deben estar envuel-

tos en material a prucea de hume-
clad, para protege su contcenido.
-l'He\ise los empaques flexilb.l
para cicrne herm6tico que hay alre-
dedor de la puerta ocasionalmente
para asegurarse (i-e estAn sirviendo
su prioposito.
-DI)cscongelc regularmentec de
manera que no se acumiule hielo. El
exceso de hielo aumenta el tiempo
de funcionamicnto del refrigerator,
con gasto excesivo de electricidad.
-Cocine en cantidad double o tri-
ple y congele el sobrante, para ser-
virlo posteriormente. Esto no s6lo
significa ahon-o de electricidad, sino
que es d1e gran utilidad cuando ne-
cesita una comida rApida.
