The Panama Canal Spillway

Vol. XIII, No. 30

Friday, January 24, 1975

Hold your hat! That's what Col. A. L. Romaneski, Engineering and Con-
struction Director, should have done when he was aboard the drillboat
"Thor" during recent resumption of blasting in Gaillard Cut. The vibration
did relieve Colonel Romaneski of his hard hat, not to the extent shown in
the photo, on which another helmet was super imposed. If you have sharp
eyes, you can see part of his helmet extending from the right of his shoulder.

Woman Named to Marine

Traffic Control Staff

On February 16, Heidi W. Jones
will start learning how ships are
moved through the Canal.
At the end of the usual 2- ear
training period, Ms. Jones will ibe
the Canal organization's first female
marine traffic controller.
Of the job she will be taking on,
she says, "Monotonous it will not
be-that's for sure." She regards the
marine traffic controllers' job as the
very heart of Canal operations-
"The Canal depends on themm" she
During her first 6 months as a
marine traffic controller assistant,
Ms. Jones will spend a good deal of
time outside the MTC offices, being
oriented and trained in the opera-
tions of the admeasurers, harbor
pilots, harbormasters, signal stations,
marine bunkering stations, steve-
dores, tugs, locks, and other related
This training will alternate with
weeks spent on orientation watches
at the MTC offices with a scheduler,
transit controller, operations clerk,
ETA estimated time of arrival)
clerk, recording and information
clerk, and particularly, the terminal
controller. After satisfactorily com-
pleting this phase of her training,
she will be assigned duty as a ter-
minal controller under supervision.
Ms. Jones was working as a clerk-
typist in the MTC offices when, half-
seriously, one of her coworkers sug-
gested that she take the Marine
Traffic Controller Assistant Exam-
ination. The idea stuck with her,
and a few days later she did just
that. To the surprise of not a few
people, she was one of four who
obtained an eligible rating on the
exam and was selected for her new
One of the more unusual aspects
of the situation is that although the
nature of her work will change dras-
tically, in her new position Ms.
ones will still Ie working for the
same supervisor, P. M. Trim, Jr.,
Chief, Marine Traffic Control. When
the day arrives, she will simply pick
up and move from a desk at (the

rear of the office to one nearer the
big MTC board.
She says she thought long and
hard before accepting the position
because it involves shift work and
she wants to be able to spend as
much time as possible with her
daughters Stephanie , 6, and Ashley,
almost 2. But the realization that
nurses and other working vwomlen
are able to do it when required en-
couraged her to accept the chal-

Relief Is Near

For Annoying

Phone Delays
Relief is on the way to correct the
irritating delay in receiving dial
tone which one frequently en-
counters when making a telephone
call from a Balboa telephone
Installation of additional sv'itch-
ing equipment in the Balboa Tele-
phone Central Office to alleviate
this condition will begin in February'
and is expected to be completed Iby
the end of April.
During March 1972, the Com-
munications Branch of the Electri-
cal Division, performed a telephone
traffic study which indicated that
the rate of calls processed by the
Balboa Central Office would exceed
its design limits by 1975. Additional
equipment was immediately ordered
and scheduled to be placed in serv-
ice by March 1974. Because of
manufacturing delays, however, the
final shipment of this equipment
has just arrived.
Shortly after the Balboa Central
Office was placed into service an
average of 107,000 calls were being
processed daily during the busy
season. This average rate now has
increased to 126,000 calls, exceed-
ing the design limits of the equip-
ment. Traffic during some days ac-
tually exceeds 145,000 calls, ap-
proximately 75 percent of which
occur between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
This dramatic increase can be at-
tributed to several factors: growth
of the Panama telephone system, the
increase in number of Company-
Covernment administrative lines
and heavier usage of the telephone
to conserve energy.
Dial-tone delay occurs when
more people are simultaneously at-
tempting to originate telephone calls
than the Central Office is designed
to handle. When this peak condition
exists, a person picking up the tele-

Jack M. Ruoff to Head

PC Petroleum Services

(Co. David S. Parker has ap-
proved the appointment of Jack M.
Ruoff to the position of Manager,
Marine Bunkering Division in the
Transportation and Terminals Bu-
The new division is the fifth
within Transportation and Termi-
nals. The other four are Terminals,
Water Transportation, Motor Trans-
portation, and the Panama Railroad.
The Marine Bunkering Division
was activated September 8, 1974,
as one of the Panama Canal Com-
pany's line divisions, due primarily
to the importance of the hunkering
function to the Canal's basic mis-
sion, and volume of business han.-
dled at the local ports. With the
growing importance of oil manage-
ment throughout the world, the
local tank farms and distribution
systems handle volumes which make
it the largest marine bunkering serv-
ice in the western hemisphere and
third largest in the world.
Ruoff leaves the Terminals Divi-

Here Are Hints

On How to Cut

Electric Bills

It's possible to save energy and
money through the wise use of
electric ranges.
S. . Cook fresh vegetables and
fruits in tightly covered containers
in a minilnum of water, and reduce
the heat as soon as the steaming
point is reached.
S. .Choose the utensil to fit the
unit needed. A 6-inch pan on an
8-inch unit wastes heat.
.. Use simmer surface unit con-
trol for melting shortening, butter
or chocolate and for reheating foods
or keeping food warm.
S.. Turn switch off before remov-
ing food from surface unit (or oven).
... Use "high" only to bring foods
to steaming, then switch to lowest
heat needed to complete cooking.
S. . If your range has a thermo-
statically controlled surface unit,
use it to save time and make every
pot and pan automatic.
S. . Many recipes are also avail-
able for a complete "one pot" meal
that can be cooked on just one sur-
face unit. This is a very economical
method because during most of the
cooking time the unit is on Simmer
or off.

The Matchmaker

To Be Presented

At CHS in Feb.

The Matchmaker, a warm-hearted
comedy by Thornton Wilder, is in
rehearsal at Cristobal High School
and will be presented February 20.
21 and 22.

Laura (regg (Mrs. Levi), Richard
Creene (Iorace Vandergelder),
1)awn Starrett (Mrs. Mollov) and
Lance Iublp (Cornelius Hackel), in
the main roles.
If any one basic theme is charac-
teristic of the farce, it is that miioiies

all evil, lbut also of pretty mnucl

Silhouetted against the sky are workmen reroofing the
Administration Building at Balboa Heights, one of a
number of structures in the Canal Zone that are being
rcroofed. Employees of the H. I. Homa construction
firm, the workmen are removing the tiles, carefully
stacking them on the roof and replacing the roofing
felt, applying asphalt and making any necessary repairs.

Three stamps honoring Canal
construction officials, a green 1-cent
ordinary postage stamp, an orange
10-cent ordinary postage stamp and
a green 25-cent ordinary postage
stamp will be placed on sale at the
Balboa Post Office on February 14.
The 1-cent stamp was first issued
in 1928 and has as its main subject
Cen. \. C. Gorgas, Chief Sanita-
tion Officer of the Isthmian Canal
Commission in the construction era.
The 10-cent stanp first issued in
19,32 depicts a head and shoulder
portrait of Gen. H-. F. Hodges, who
served on the Isthmian Canal Com-
mission as the Chief Engineer from
1907 to 1914, in charge of design-
ing the Canal locks.
The 25-cent stamp, first placed
on sale in 1948, has a portrait of
Gen. J. F. Wallace, who served
as the first Chief Engineer of the
Panama Canal from 1904 to 1905.
Collectors desiring first-day can-
cellations of the stamps should send
requests to the Philatelic Agency,
Balboa, C.Z. Requests will be ac-
cepted through February 14. Re-
quests must include addressed en-
velopes (covers) together with re-
mittance. Each cover should be
pencil-marked in the upper right
corner to show the number of
stamps to be affixed. First-Day
Covers are regarded as first-class
mail, so a minimum of 10 cents is
required for each cover. Envelopes
submitted should be of ordinary
letter size, be properly addressed,
including Zip Code, contain an en-
closure of postal card weight and
have the flap either turned in or
sealed. The envelope containing
covers should be endorsed "First-
Day Covers." Personal checks and
postage stamps will not be accepted
as remittance. Requests for unusual
arrangements and place numbers
cannot lie granted.
Local collectors must present

phone to make a call will have his
line placed in a holding pattern un-
til the backlog of excess attempted
calls has been cleared.
SHere are some hints to help re-
lieve the overloaded system until
the new equipment is installed:
1. When a dial-tone delay is en-
countered, hang-up after 10 seconds
and wait a few minutes before
trying again. Traffic lwaks are spo-
radic and normally short in dura-
tion. Holding the line merely in-
creases the duration of the overload.
2. Before initiating a call make
sure you know the number. Check
the new 1975 Telephone Directory
to be sure. Dialing promptly will
Iinimiie the time that you occupy
the overloaded er quiment.
3. When possible, avoid the
hours between 9 a.m. and 4 pln.

All the old tiles, which are no longer available on the
market, then are put back into place. The work was
purposely scheduled for the dry season, the best time
of the year despite stiff breezes. Persons in the area of
the Administration Building are cautioned to keep away
from the eaves of the building during the repairs as a
safety precaution. (See other photo in Spanish section.)

Heidi Jones Sera la 1I

Controladora de Trafic

El pr6ximo 16 de febrero, Heidi
W. Jones comenzara a conocer a
fondo c6mo se mueven los barcos
de un extreme a otro del Canal.
Al thrmino del period regular de
adiestramiento de 2 afios, la serena
y delicada Heidi se convertirfi en la
primera mujer que Ilega a ocupar
el cargo de controladora de trifico
maritime en la empresa del Canal.
Heidi, quien describe su nacio-
nalidad como "Chirigringa", pues
su madre es chiricana y su padre
es norteamericano, estA plenamente
satisfecha de sus primeros conoci-
mientos de lo que serAn sus futuras
funciones. "Mon6tono no seri; de

La Division de Abasto Maritimo
fue creada el 8 de septiembre de
1974, como una de las dependencias
especializadas de la Companiia del
Canal de PanamrA, debido a la im-
portancia del abastecimiento de
combustible para que el Canal cum-
pla su misi6n, y al volume de com-
bustible que suministran los puer-
tos locales.

S alcanzan en todo el mundo los com-

A E. Dudley

Al Jubilarse

Eugene Dudley, antiguo emplea-
do de la Divisi6n de Almacenes, fue
objeto de merecido reconocimiento
a su labor con esa dependencia.
Dudley, quien trabajaba para el
Departamento de Excedentes y
Chatarra, se acogi6 a la jubilaci6n
el 21 de diciembre, luego de cum-
plir mis de 32 afios de servicio con
la organizaci6n del Canal. El 23 de
diciembre, en ocasi6n de celebrarse
la fiesta annual de Navidad, el Jefe
de la Divisi6n de Almacenes, J. H.
Simson, entreg6 a Dudley una carta
de reconocimiento.
Dudley no s6lo destac6 en su tra-
bajo. Su colaboraci6n en asuntos de
interns de la comunidad y en acti-
vidades deportivas, ha sido valio-
sa. En sus mocedades particip6 en
competencias de fltbol, pista y
campo, levantamiento de pesas, lu-
cha, baloncesto y softbol. Fue
miembro prominente del famoso
equipo "Mercurio" de pista y cam-
po, integrado en La Boca hace
muchos afios.
En competencias de pista y cam-
po logr6 ganar el campeonato en
una ocasi6n en salto con garrocha,
al establecer una marca de 12 pies
6 pulgadas.
Por muchos aieos Dudley ha ser-
vido como bomber voluntario en
la Compaflia B del Cuerpo de Bom-
beros de PanamA.
Sus aptitudes en el arte del canto
v su vocaci6n religiosa lo llevaron
a cantar como solista para la Igle-
sia Evangelista.
Dudley es casado y padre de cua-
tro varones y una mujer. Ahora
como jubilado piensa en dedicar
mis tiempo a su familiar y a las
actividades religiosas.

se exige trabajo de turn y desea
pasar el mayor tiempo possible con
sius hijas Stephanie, de 6 arios, y
Ashley, de casi 2. Pero el pensar
que las enfermeras y otras nmujeres

a decidirse por aceptar el reto.
La mayoria de los comentarios

su decision, dice Heidi, si bien al-
gunos sin una idea precisa de la

diendo afirman que "ese no) es un
