Panama Canal

To Participate

In Chorrera Fair
The Panama Canal Company
pavilion at the annual Agricultural,
Commercial, Industrial and Folk-
loric Fair at La Chorrera will house
mounted photographs and transpar-
encies of many of the ships that
have transmitted the Canal during its
60 years of operation.
The photographic display will be
on exhibit during the entire period
of the fair which will be held in
La Chorrera from February 26 to
March 3.
The exhibit will be sent to La
Chorrera in response to a formal in-
vitation for the Canal Zone to take
part in the fair which was extended
to Gov. David S. Parker by the pr-
ganizing committee.
Another highlight of the fair will
be the lively music of Lucho AzcA-
rraga who will play his famous
organ each day. A combo from the
776th U.S. Air Force Band will also
entertain fairgoers.
All Canal Zone residents are in-
vited to attend the fair and view

Save Time, Money

With Proper Use

Of Appliances

Your electric clothes washer, along
with your automatic dryer, are the
greatest labor - saving household
servants you have ... and they work
for just pennies a day. Here are a
few hints for the most economical
use of your washer and dryer:
. Wash full loads. This will save
you time, hot water and electricity.
* Do not over-wash or over-dry.
This only wastes time and elec-
* Use lowest water temperature
that will give desired results. Warm
or cold water is perfectly satisfac-
tory for rinsing. In fact, cold rinse
is best for permanent press, wash-
and-wear or any synthetic fabrics.
This also reduces electric consump-
tion of the water heater.
. Measure detergents. Too much
or too little can produce poor re-
* Lint traps should be cleaned
frequently. A clogged lint trap or
filter vent will reduce the unit's effi-
* Providing a vent from the dryer
to the outside will exhaust heat and
moisture, saving on air-conditioning
* If the appliance fails to operate,
refer first to your instruction book-
let. The problem may be a simple
one and save you a service call.

or treated with 2 to 4 drops per
quart of a 4-6 percent chlorine
bleach solution at least 30 minutes
before drinking. Halizone sold at
the retail store may also be used.
Contaminated water is unsafe for
swimming. Ice and ice cream should
be avoided but foods that have
been heated and served while hot
generally are safe. Milk must be
boiled to be safe. Leafy vegetables
are unsafe unless they have been
treated with a chlorine solution.
Fruits peeled by the individual just
before eating are usually safe, but
care should be taken that the out-
side of the peel does not come in
contact with the portion that is to
be eaten.
Typhoid vaccination is recom-
mended by the Public Health Serv-
ice only for persons who will visit

Know Your

Mrs. Norma B. Miller, of Diablo,
was recently elected secretary of
the Pacific Civic Council after
having been appointed to fill a va-
cancy on the council during the
second half of 1974.
Mrs. Miller is a registered nurse
who attended Wesley Junior Col-
lege in Dover, Del., and graduated
from the Lucy Webb Hayes
School of Nursing at Sibley Hos-
pital in Washington, D.C. She came
to the Canal Zone in 1965 with the
fonner Penny Catron (now Mrs.
J. E. Lotterhos, of Jackson, Miss.),
a nursing school classmate who had
lived in the Canal Zone. She worked
only a year and a half, however,
before marrying James R. Miller, a
traffic policeman, and settling down
to life as a housewife.
Mrs. Miller says she misses
nursing very much, but plans not
to return to work until Jimmy, 7,
and Eddie, 5, are grown or part-
time or day work becomes avail-
She characterizes herself as "a
real stay-at-homer" who "thor-
oughly believes in the mother
caring for the family and doing the
cooking and all housework."
Besides making nearly all of her
own clothes-she taught herself to
sew-and gardening, Mrs. Miller
enjoys relaxing in the "radio room"
and listening to her husband, a ham
radio operator, make contacts
throughout the world.
She also likes swimming, water
skiing, and horseback riding, and is
interested in art projects. In 1973,
she made large plywood models of
Winnie the Poo and his friends
which were displayed in the Gorgas
Hospital pediatric section during
that Christmas season.
Mrs. Miller taught in the nursery
program at Balboa Union Church
last year. She also helped organize
child day care centers when the
new minimum wage law took effect
in May 1974.
Mrs. Miller is well-traveled. She
was born in Pasadena, Calif., and
graduated from high school in
Easton, Md. Between 1949 and
1957, her father was employed by
Standard Oil, and the family alter-
nated 2 years in Japan with 1 year
in Maplewood, N.J. Mrs. Miller
says she thoroughly enjoyed grow-
ing up in Japan, with lots of ice
skating, riding and swimming. She
once challenged Mount Fuji, but a
typhoon forced her party to turn
back after completing three-fourths
of the climb.

A 91-year-old "oldtimer" who
still refers to his 8 years spent in
the Canal Zone as the "best years
of my life" wrote a nostalgic letter
recently to acknowledge the receipt
of the Panama Canal courtesy cal-
endar sent to him by J. Winter
Collins, the Canal's retirement
In retrospect, J. W. Tannehill,
of Brea, Calif., recalled early days
on the Canal, where he said he had
arrived in January 1906 and was
assigned to the Post Office in
Ancon, working under a postmaster
who was really a carpenter. Tanne-
hill remarked that Post Office help
was hard to come by in those days
and noted that a man who was
station agent and postmaster had
died of fellow fever the week be-
fore he had arrived.

Laura Gregg is shown as Mrs. Levi
in Cristobal High School's produc-
tion of "The Matchmaker." This
famous comedy by Thornton Wilder
will be presented in the CHS Audi-
torium, February 21 and 22. Cur-
tain time is 8 p.m.

Stars of the Canal Zone College's upcoming production
of "Cabaret" relax on the set during a lull in a rehearsal
schedule which includes practicing of dance routines,
musical numbers and lines. Standing is Charles
Brannan who portrays the Emcee, the role portrayed
by Joel Grey in the popular film version. Seated, left
to right, are: George Kent (Herr Schultz), Sandy Fobes
(the incomparable Sally Bowles), Tom Mitchell (Clifford
Bradshaw), Estrella Rosenburg (Fraulein Kost) and

He was later sent to Matachin, a
station on the old Panama Railroad
line near Corgona, where he said he
found mail that was a week old.
Recalling the hardships in the area,
Tannehill said there was no place
to eat, he had to meet eight trains
a day, and that there was no drink-
ing water "except for the R.P.
overflow." There were no utilities
in the building he occupied the first
2 months he was there and the
river served as his bathing facility.
He recalled that in July of that
year, he was put in charge of the
Post Office in Ancon, located in an
old building left by the French.
And later, because he had studied
Spanish, he was assigned to take
charge of the Post Office in the
Canal building on the square be-
cause they needed someone who
could speak Spanish. He recalled it
as an easy job with no Sunday work.
He made a round trip to New York
when the person who handled the
New York mail became ill. When
he returned, he was assigned to the
Ancon Post Office in the new build-
ing and stayed there until 1914,
when he returned to Nebraska,
where his father and mother had
died and left him a farm.-He said
he sold the farm and went to Calif-
ornia in 1930 and has lived there
Tannehill credits himself as one
of the 25 oldtimers who had raised
enough money to put the bill
through Congress that gave special
construction day annuity that he
said Theodore Roosevelt had pro-
mised to employees who had
worked 2 years or more.
Ending his letter in a pensive
mood, Tannehill wonders how
many of those 25 oldtimers are still
alive and hopes that he will be
around to receive next year's cal-

Alexis Lopez (Ernst Ludwig). The spectacular musical
with costumes of the 1930's and a combined innovative
arena and proscenium set design runs March 7-15.
Barbara Byers is in charge of the show's creative
choreography with Dr. Victor Herr in charge of music.
Bruce Quinn is directing and is assisted by student di-
rector Wisia Kaliszczak. Reservation may be made after
February 24 by calling the college at 52-3107 during
duty hours. Price of admission is $2.50.

Marine Electrical Shop

Keeps Boats on the Go

When a Panama Canal boat de-
velops electrical problems, it's the
19 troubleshooters of the Marine
Electrical Shop who are called on
to locate and repair the damage.
At their shop in the Industrial
Division Area at Mount Hope, they
also do routine maintenance on the
electrical systems of these boats,
sometimes work on the electrical

3d Swim-a-Thon

Is Scheduled

For March 8

The Club Internacional de Nata-
ci6n (CIN) will hold its Third An-
nual Swim-a-Thon on March 8.
The annual event is a test of
endurance swimming. Competitors
will attempt toswim non-stop for
2 hours or 200 pool lengths which-
ever they complete first.
Those who complete the event
will have swum just a fraction less
than 3 miles.
The Swim-a-Thon is held each
year to collect funds, to publicize
the International Swimming Hall of
Fame; to endow a Swimming and
Water Safety Library; to support
Olympic Travel Funds; and to pro-
vide travel funds for CIN swimmers
so they can maintain their amateur
status and still compete in Central
and South American Swim Meets
and in United States National Trials.
Individual contributions may be
made in two ways. Prior to the
Swim-a-Thon, individuals will be
asked to sponsor a swimmer by
pledging to donate a specific amount
of money for each length their
swimmer completes. The pledge can
be for any amount from a penny a
length to a dollar a length and up.
Pledges may be paid after the Swim-
a-Thon is over and figures tallied.
But it is easier and less complicated
if individuals show their confidence
in their swimmer and make an ad-
vance donation.
Donations will be accepted from
organized groups who will receive
certificates of appreciation for sup-
port they give to the drive.

ama Canal installations on the At-

Their most recent high-priority
project has been the overhaul of
the electrical system of the Pan-
ama Canal tugboat San Pablo while
it was drydocked at Mount Hope.
Shop personnel have also been
overhauling the generators and the
crane control wiring of the dredge
At the same time, they have been
doing the electrical work on the
Bobo II, the second work launch to
be built by the Canal organization
since 1965. The U.S. Piranha was
launched last August.
An innovation on the Bobo II,
which was designed and is being
built by the Industrial Division, is
that its deckhouse will be hinged
to permit easy removal of the en-
gine for repair without the deck-
house having to be removed en-
Among the landlocked motors the
Marine Electrical Shop services are
those at the Cold Storage Plant, the
Cristobal Junior-Senior High School
and Atlantic side retail stores. About

may be called on to assist when any
of the giant generators is over-
The only electrical motor work
that isn't done at the Mount Hope

El Ferrocarril de Panama'

Aumenta su Popularidad

El 28 de enero de 1975 pas6 de-
sapercibido para muchos, pero esa
fecha marcaba el aniversario de un
acontecimiento hist6rico en el Ist-
mo: el viaje interoceanico del pri-
mer tren por el Istmo de PanamA.
A pesar de que el viaje realizado,
de apenas 50 millas, era relativa-
mente infimo comparado con otros
ferrocarriles transoceAnicos que ope-
ran en el mundo, es de notar el he-
cho de que la travesia ocurri6 1 afio
antes de que se tendiera el primer
riel al oeste del Mississippi y 14
afios antes de que los ferrocarriles
de los Estados Unidos comenzaran
a viajar de costa a costa.
El Ferrocarril de Panama se inau-

carril", con la apertura de la linea

Ferrocarril de PanamA esta mis po-

do los tiempos en que era el dnico
medio de transport entire el sector
AtlAntico y el Pacifico. En aquellos
tiempos, el ferrocarril tenia enorme
demand. En 1913 registry una mar-
ca muy dificil de superar: transpor-
t6 2.916.657 pasajoros y 2.026.852
toneladas de carga, para alcanzar
el mayor volume de transport por
milla en todo el mundo.
El afio pasado, el Ferrocarril
transport 864.114 pasajeros y
230.914 toneladas, de un extreme a
otro del Istmo, cantidades significa-
tivamente superiores a los 829.114
pasajeros y 212.188 toneladas de
carga que emplearon este servicio
el afio anterior.
El primer tren, una locomotora
y nueve coaches, parti6 de Aspin-
wall (Col6n) a las 8:30 a.m. y lleg6
a la ciudad de PanamA a las 3:30
p.m., despu6s de detenerse en 26 es-
taciones a lo largo de la ruta. Hoy,
el ferrocarril brinda ocho viajes en
ambas direcciones al dia a los pasa-
jeros, incluso un tren de carga noc-
turno al que se adiciona un vag6n

de pasajeros y cruza el Istmo en
hora y media, deteni6ndose en siete
o nueve estaciones durante el viaje.

El Lunes
Los empleados calificados y de
categories relacionadas de la orga-
nizaci6n del Canal de PanamA reci-
birAn cheques mis jugosos el pr6xi-
mo lunes 24 de febrero. Este dia de
pago serin incluidos en los cheques
respectivos el aumento retroactive
cuyo pago fue autorizado en no-
viembre pasado por la Oficina de
Administraci&n y Presupuesto.
El pago retroactive que se harA
efectivo en los cheques del pr6ximo
lunes se refiere a los tres periods
de pago comprendidos entire el 13
de octubre y el 23 de noviembre de
1974. Alrededor de 3.600 emplea-
dos recibiran aumento por $329.000.
Una vez se cumplan los pagos
anunciados, la Contaduria General
del Canal habra un program de
pagos previamente elaborado para
la cancelaci6n de los aumentos pen-
dientes en la organizaci6n del Canal.
Los empleados de las divisions
de Policia y de Bomberos recibieron
sus aumentos retroactivos, corres-
pondientes a 10 periods de pago,
el 30 de diciembre, en tanto que los
educadores obtuvieron sus aumen-

Cuarenta afios de servicio con una
empresa sugieren responsabilidad y
eficiencia. Kenneth Alfonso Brown
ha cumplido 49 aiios de trabajar
para la empresa del Canal, todos
con la misma unidad-la Divisi6n
de Mantenimiento-y ello revela a
las claras la calidad de empleado
que ha sido Brown. MAs a6n si se
toma en cuenta que Brown fue en
sus mocedades un apasionado por
la m6sica y un excelente deportista,
dedicando prActicamente todo su
tiempo libre a ambas aficiones. El
SPILLWAY descubri6 a Brown a tra-
v6s del "Noticiero" de la Divisi6n
de Mantenimiento, 6rgano de di-
vulgaci6n de esa unidad del Canal
que sali6 hace poco a la luz p6blica.
Brown se inici6 como ayudante de
pintor con el Canal el 10 de abril
de 1926, casi 16 aiios despu6s de
haber Ilegado al Istmo. Habia naci-
do en Barbados el 17 de diciembre
de 1910 y viaj6 al Istmo el 11 de
abril de 1911 con su madre, para
reunirse con su padre, quien tra-
bajaba en la construcci6n del Canal.
Recuerda que su padre, quien se
jubil6 del Canal y reside en Pana-
ma, trabaj6 en la pavimentaci6n del
tramo de la Avenida Central com-
prendido entire Santa Ana y Calido-
nia. Cuando se incorpor6 al Canal
Kenneth Brown, Mantenimiento
pertenecia a la antigua Divisi6n de
Construcci6n del Ejurcito, que es-
taba localizada entire las calls Ba-
yano y Chagres. "El Area esta-
ba completamente desolada", dice
Brown al recorder aquellos tiempos.
"Entonces dos burros halaban la
enonne maquina de cortar hierba".
Brown vio su unidad transformada
en Division de Edificaciones y des-
pues su fusi6n con la Divisi6n Mu-
nicipal, para constituir lo que es
hoy la Divisi6n de Mantenimiento.
Durante la II Guerra Mundial,
Brown, comenz6 a sacar provecho
a sus habilidades con el contrabajo.
Sabore6 como miembro de varies
conjuntos musicales, entire ellos el
que dirigia Lucho Azcirraga, los
aplausos del piblico. Toc6 en cen-
tros nocturnos de moda en ese tiem-
po, como lo eran el Kelly Ritz y el
Happy Land, y acompaii6 a Lucho
Azcirraga, que a la saz6n tocaba el
piano, a presentaciones en David y
en otros lugares del Istmo. "Era una
vida muy intense", dice. En el cam-
po deportivo destac6 como recep-
tor en beisbol, tocAndole alternar
con el papA de Rod Carew, quien
ahora reside en los EE. UU. Ade-
mis de jugar dirigi6 equipos mas-
culinos y femeninos de softbol y
baloncesto. A l1 cabe el honor de
haber organizado el primer conjun-
to femenino de bola suave del Ist-

mo, en La Boca, en 1928. El equipo
tenia que jugar con otras novenas
integradas por varones, ya que no
habia otros equipos femeninos. "En
softbol, indica, logr6 que mis equi-
pos acumularan cuatro trofeos".
Hoy dia conserve su afici6n por el
beisbol. En su opinion, PanamA ha
dado grandes peloteros, "pero el
mejor ha sido Andres Alonso", quien
jug6 pelota professional. "Se crecia
ante los mejores", afiade. Se jacta de
tener 29 nietos, desde el 1� afio
hasta los 20 afios. La mayor de sus
nietas, Shirley Guerrero, mide 6 pies

Se cuenta que el fil6sofo estoico
Epicteto, que vivi6 entire el afio 50
y el 125 o 130 d. J.C., era objeto
de una cruel tortura por parte de
su duenio, quien le retorcia brutal-
mente una pierna con un instru-
mento de torture. "Vas a romperla",
dijo sonriendo Epicteto a su amo.
Finalmente, al cumplirse su predic-
ci6n, se content solo con afiadir:
"No te lo habia dicho?" Parte de su
filosofia fue recogida por Flavio
Arriano. Entre otras cosas, Epic-
teto sostenia que "el impasible sera
feliz, sera libre, serA todopoderoso,
seri perfecto.

Enfermeras y Auxiliares Realizan

Gran Labor en el Hosp. Gorgas

A fr
9' K..
. - 1. . . ^

Carlos Ward le toma la presi6n a uno de los pacientes, mientras Gerardo
Reyes, otro ayudante de enfermeria hace las correspondientes anotaciones
en la cuadricula.

"Recuerdo que pricticamente
desde que eran las 6 p.m., me la pa-
saba esperando que fueran las 11
p.m. Alrededor de esa hora, legaba
un ayudante de enfermeria y me
daba un masaje en la espalda con
una crema especial. Con ello me
sentia mejor y podia conciliar el
suefno". Ese fue el comentario de
un paciente que estuvo reciente-
mente en la Sala 5 de Cirugia del
Hospital Gorgas.
Otro resumi6 sus impresiones asi:
"En la madrugada, cuando no podia
dormir, la sola aparici6n de una de
las enfermeras era un t6nico para
mi y me hacia olvidar las molestias
por las que estaba pasando. El nom-
bre de 'Angeles Blancos' que les ha
puesto el pueblo panamefio les cae
requetebien. La sonrisa que Ilevan
en los labios en todo moment y la
delicadeza con que brindan sus cui-
dados hacen el contmuo milagro de
aliviar los sufrimientos".

La Sala 5 de Cirugia del Gorgas
es una sala tipica de ese hospital,
al igual que del Hospital Coco Solo
y su personal de enfermeria labor
con la misma consagraci6n, devo-
ci6n y eficiencia con que lo hacen
todos los demas profesionales de la
enfermeria que laboran en las dife-
rentes casas de salud de la Zona del
En el hospital, la autoridad mrxi-
ma es el medico. El ordena las me-
dicinas, el tratamiento, la dieta y
todo lo que se refiere a la cura del
paciente. Las enfermeras, los "An-
geles Blancos", se encargan de cum-
plir con esas 6rdenes, con la cola-
boraci6n de los ayudantes de enfer-
meria. Estos ultimos y las enferme-
ras son los que mantienen una mis
intima comunicaci6n con los pacien-
tes durante las 24 horas del dia.
Ellos, mas que nadie, son los que
dejan un recuerdo imborrable en los

que van al hospital en busca de
En cada turno de trabajo prestan
servicios de dos a cuatro enferme-
ras, de dos a seis ayudantes de en-
fermeria y various auxiliares. Estos
iltimos se encargan principalmente
de que la sala est6 inmaculadamen-
te limpia.
Las enfermeras son todas gra-
duadas de la Escuela de Enferme-
ria de PanamA y de universidades
de Puerto Rico y de Estados Uni-
dos. Todas han sido registradas
como enfermeras en los Estados
Unidos y continuamente estan per-
feccionindose mediante cursos de
adiestramiento, que son dirigidos
por la Jefa de Enfermeras del Hos-
pital Corgas, Srta. Helen L. Brooks.
Estos cursos son dictados por profe-
sionales de la enfermeria que mu-
chas veces vienen de los Estados
La Sra. Dominga Ceballos de
Watson, panamena, es una de las
enfermeras que prestan servicios en
la Sala 5 del Gorgas. Se gradu6 en
la Escuela de Enfermeria de Pana-
mi en 1967 y desde entonces ha
prestado servicios en el Hospital del
Nifio de PanamA, en el Hospital
Amador Guerrero de Col6n, en el
Hempstead General Hospital de
Nueva York y, desde 1972, presta
servicios en el Gorgas. Primero tra-
baj6 en pediatria y desde octubre
de 1974 pertenece al personal de la
Sala 5.
La Sra. de Watson dice: "La ca-
rrera de la enfermera es muy boni-
ta para quien tiene esa vocacion.
Me esfuerzo en tratar a cada uno
de mis pacientes de tal manera que
todos se convenzan de lo importan-
tes que son para mi. Es conmovedor
ver el agradecimiento que nos de-
muestran al despedirse".
La mayoria de los que no estin
familiarizados con los hospitals no
tienen idea de la preparaci6n que
tienen los ayudantes de enfermeria.
Uno de ellos es Gerardo Reyes, pa-
namefio, nacido en la ciudad de
Santiago de Veraguas y que cuenta
con 29 anos de servicio, todos en el
Hospital Gorgas. Explica que el tra-

bajo que ejecuta es de una gran
responsabilidad y que el ayudante
de enfermeria debe prepararse para
cumplir con sus deberes, pero antes
que todo, necesita vocaci6n. "De-
bemos tratar igual a todos los pa-
cientes y hacer todo lo possible por-
que se recuperen' prontamente",
dice Reyes.
Cuenta que para llegar a ser ayu-
dante de enfermeria hay que tomar
un curso dividido en dos parties.
Primero, el adiestramiento basico,
que dura de 6 meses a 1 afio, en el
que se prepare a la persona en ta-
reas tales como el baiio del paciente,
el conocimiento y el uso de los dife-
rentes utensilios de limpieza, el uso
del term6metro y las precauciones
que se deben tomar para evitar el
contagio. La segunda parte del cur-

so include teoria y practice: Ana-
tomia, relaciones humans, aten-
ci6n de pacientes que han sido so-
metidos a cirugia, funciones vitales
del cuerpo human, c6mo tomar la
presi6n de la sangre, c6mo hacer la
prueba de la orina y otros aspects
de la atenci6n de los pacientes.
Interpretando el sentir de todo
ayudante de enfermeria, Reyes re-

El6giase el Desempenio

De Selecci6n de Beisbol

Cuando una embarcaci6n del
Canal de Panama sufre desperfectos
electricos son Ilamados a resolver el
problema los 19 investigadores de
esta clase de dafios que tienen su
centro de operaciones en el Taller
de Electricidad de Marina.
En el taller, localizado en el sec-
tor de Mount Hope reservado para
la Division Industrial, los electricis-
tas suelen efectuar trabajos rutina-
rios de mantenimiento de los siste-
mas electricos de las embarcaciones
del Canal y en algunas ocasiones en
los equipos electricos de barcos co-
merciales. Tambi6n prestan scrvicio
a todos los motors electricos de las
instalaciones del Canal en el sector
Atlhntico del Istmo.
El proyecto de alta prioridad mis
reciente desarrollado por el perso-
nal del taller de Mount Hope ha
sido el acondicionamiento de los ge-
neradores y del alambrado el6ctrico
de la draga Goliath.
Al mismo tiempo, tambicn han
estado empefiados en la ejecuci6n
de trabajos el6ctricos en la Bobo II,
la segunda lancha para uso del
Canal construida por la empresa del
Canal desde 1965. Se trata de la
U.S. Piranha, que fue botada en
agosto del afio pasado.
Un ainnovaci6n ha sido introdu-
cida en la Bobo II, que fue disefia-
da y es construida por la Divisi6n
Industrial. La cabina consistirh de
varias secciones, de manera que
pueda sacarse ficilmente la maqui-
na para ser reparada, sin tener que
sacar totalmente la cabina.
Entre los motors que atiende en
tierra fire el Taller de Electrici-

dad de Marina figuran el frigorifico
y los equipos el6ctricos de los alma-
cenes de la Escuela Secundaria de
Crist6bal y de los demAs almacenes
del sector Atlantico. El mayor equi-
po que atiende personal del taller
de Mount Hope es la Planta Hidro-
elhctrica de Gatin. Los empleados
pueden ser llamados a cooperar con

personal de la plant, cuando el ge-
nerador esti siendo reacondicio-
El 6nico tipo de trabajo para mo-
tores eldctricos que no es realizado
en los talleres de Mount Hope es el
embobinado, para lo cual los moto-
res son enviados al Taller de Embo-
binado de Balboa.


Everett James "Ed" Schumacher, del Taller de Electricidad de la Direc-
ci6n de Marina utiliza un hidr6metro para medir el potential electrolitico
de una de varias baterias de embarcaciones que estAn siendo recargadas.

"El equipo universitario de beis-
bol panameno mereci6 quizAs un
segundo lugar en los II Juegos Uni-
versitarios Centroamericanos y del
Caribe", opin6 el entrenador de la
novena, Profesor Jos6 D. Ampudia,
quien se desempefia como professor
de Educaci6n Fisica en la Zona del
Ampudia dijo que el equipo de
Panamai perdi6 dos juegos por ven-
taja minima de una carrera y pudo
ganarle a Cuba en juego que debi6
ir a 15 episodios, pero la suerte le
fue adversa. La selecci6n paname-
fia logr6 concctar 53 imparables en
los 52 episodios en que jug6, pero,
evidentemente su bateo no fue
Especial elogio del director del
conjunto de beisbol de Panamai, asi
como de la prensa mexicana, mere-
ci6 la excelente tarea cumplida por
el lanzador Fanor Castillo, oriundo
de Bocas del Toro, quien lanz6 14/3
episodios frente a Cuba, que apel6
a cuatro lanzadores para poder do-
blegar al equipo panamefio.
Afirm6 Ampudia que la caida de
PanamA contra Cuba se produjo al
formirsele una ampolla en uno de
los dedos de la mano de lanzar a
Castillo, problema que fue aprove-
chado por el poderoso conjunto is-
lenio para embasar dos hombres en
el d6cimo quinto episodio, decre-
tandose la salida de Castillo. El
juego termin6 6-3.
Castillo, que friza en los 25 afios,
fue informado del interns de un
buscador de talents para que in-
gresara en una de las organizacio-
nes de pelota professional de los Es-
tados Unidos, pero no se mostr6

interesado pues se halla empefiado
en obtener su titulo de Pedagogia
en la Universidad de PanamA. Es
maestro en la actualidad.
PanamA le gan6 en M6xico al
equipo local por 5-3, pero perdi6
por la minima diferencia frente a
Venezuela, que fue el subcampe6n
detrAs de Cuba (2-1) y Republica
Dominicana (5-4). A Puerto Rico lo
aventajaba PanamA hasta caer por
anotaci6n final de 6-2, explic6 Am-
pudia. La novena panamefia gan6 1
juego y perdi6 4 quedando empa-
tada con las de M6xico y Republica
Dominicana. Puerto Rico ocup6 el
tercer puesto (3-2).

37 Anos Para el Canal

A 120 afios de distancia, el Ferrocarril de Panama estA
aumentando en popularidad. Muchos lo utilizan en tra-
vesias diarias para ir al trabajo y regresar; otros para
ir y regresar de sus studios y una buena cantidad sen-
cillamente para realizar un paseo en tren con la familiar

terrestre que separaba los oc6anos
AtlAntico y Pacifico.
En 1849, un grupo de inversio-
nistas norteamericanos decidi6 que
el Istmo tenia un gran potential y
comenz6 la construcci6n de un fe-

y salirse asi de la rutina. La foto, tomada cuando el
tren se acerca al t6nel de Miraflores, muestra al fondo
las Esclusas de Pedro Miguel y un gran barco dirigi6n-
dose hacia el sur. Present los dos m6todos de transpor-
te interoceAnico con que cuenta el Canal.

rrocarril. Los problems encontra-
dos durante el period de la cons-
trucci6n, de 1849 a 1855, suminis-
trarian a cualquier escritor material
para today una vida y para escribir
un libro sumamente interesante.

Baste decir que ya se han escrito
muchos libros sobre nuestro ferro-
carril y que aln hoy en dia, los via-
jeros que cruzan el Istmo en tren,
quedan llenos de admiraci6n hacia
los constructores de lines ferreas
de hace mAs de 1 siglo.
Sin embargo, muy pocos son los
que saben que la mayor parte de la
line original del Ferrocarril de Pa-
nama estA sumergida bajo el Lago
Gatin. Desde su primer viaje, el
ferrocarril encontr6 numerosos pro-
blemas, incluso los de indole eco-
n6mica. Pero siempre, el pequefio
ferrocarril ha cobrado nuevos brios
y hoy en dia, a diferencia de otros
ferrocarriles, estA gozando de uno
de sus mejores periods.
Bajo la gerencia de Frederick R.
Call, quien sirvi6 anteriormente con
el Ferrocarril de Pensilvania y que
se uni6 al Ferrocarril de PanamA
en 1960, la line ha continuado me-
jorando sus servicios de pasajeros y
de carga.
Una de las cinco divisions de la
Direcci6n de Transporte y Termi-
nales, la alta direcci6n del Ferroca-
rril de PanamA corresponde al Co-
ronel Charles R. Clark y a Donald
R. Brayton, Director y Subdirector,
respectivamente de Transporte y
Terminales. Este iltimo fue gerente
del Ferrocarril de PanamA.
