Teta, Ferrell Are Named

To Head 'Camelot' Cast

Bob Teta and Josie Ferrell will
play the lead roles of King Arthur
and Queen Guinevere in the United
Way summer production of "Cam-
elot," according to director Ed
Carwithen and coproducers Bruce
Quinn and Ken Pittman. Teta is
familiar to Canal Zone theatre-
goers, both for his acting and di-
recting in the productions of Surf-
side and Ancon Little Theaters.
Miss Ferrell played the role of one
of Tevye's daughters in "Fiddler
on the Roof" last summer.
The Alan Jay Lerner and Fred-
erick Loewe play, based on T. H.
White's book The Once and Future
King, recreated the enchanting
world of King Arthur, with a story
that weaves two themes: Arthur's
dream of a peaceable world where
might serves right, and the ill-fated
romance between Queen Guine-
vere and the young Lancelot.
Other roles in the musical in-
clude Sir Lancelot, the French
knight who wins Guinevere's heart,
John Simmons; King Pellinore, an
aging king who leaves his search
for the Questing Beast to join
Arthur's Roundtable, John Mayles;
Mordred, Arthur's illegitimate son

Postal Service

To Close Out

Curundu Branch

The Canal Zone Postal Service
has been forced to initiate positive
cost saving actions to reduce severe
operational deficits. One of these
actions, the result of an extensive
survey, is the closing of Curundu
Post Office.
At the close of business June 30,
all financial operations at Curundu
will be discontinued. These in-
clude the sale of stamps, money
orders, and the acceptance of ar-
ticles for mailing. To lessen the
impact on affected patrons, Cu-
rundu will continue to operate as
a mail delivery unit until August 1.
This means that all incoming mail
will be distributed the same as is.
presently being done until Au-
gust 1.
Patrons are urged to make
prompt arrangements to obtain a
new box at another post office.
Boxes are available at Albrook
AFB and Fort Clayton Post Offi-
ces. As a convenience, patrons may
retain their present Curundu box
at no charge during July, in addi-
tion to their new box. This will
insure as little delay as possible in
the receipt of mail during the tran-
sition period.
Change of address kits are avail-
able for advising mailers of the
new post office address. After Au-
gust 1, all mail will be forwarded
to the new address.
The existing street letter boxes
located at Curundu and Curundu
Heights will continue to be serv-

Summer Charter Flights

Running to Near Capacity

The ninth of 16 northbound
flights took off for Miami Monday
morning carrying 165 passengers
and bringing to 1,434 the number
of Canal employees and their de-
pendents who have used the char-
ter flights so far this year for the
annual exodus of summer travelers.
The chartered jetliners began
flying on May 19 with eight flights
leaving Tocumen between June 2
and June 16 for Miami, and one,
on June 10, for New Orleans.
There will be 13 southbound
flights this year-12 out of Miami
and one from New Orleans. The
first southbound flight is scheduled
for June 26.
For the first time this year, two
flights left Tocumen simultane-
ously, on June 6, carrying 385
teachers and families with school-
Three flights have experienced
minor delays due to late arrival of
equipment at Tocumen. None of
the delays exceeded 2 hours.
Passenger loads thus far this year
have exceeded 95 percent per
flight, indicating to transportation
personnel that the season-end fig-
ures may reach 1974's record-
breaking 99.2 percent, highest in
the 5-year history of the charter
Chartered flights leave Tocumen
at 8:45 a.m., local time, for Miami;
and at 7:30 a.m., local time for
New Orleans. Flights arrive in

Miami at 12:15 p.m. and in New
Orleans at 10:45 a.m. The return
flights leave Miami at 7:30 p.m.,
and arrive at Tocumen at 9 p.m.
The southbound flight out of New
Orleans departs at 5:30 p.m. and
arrives at Tocumen at 8:45 p.m.
Personnel of the Administrative
Services Division's Transportation
Branch and the Motor Transporta-
tion Division coordinate their ef-
forts in making the charter flights
a high spot in the vacationer's trip.
In years past, passengers have
been extravagant in their praise of
both the personnel and services
from the initial contact with reser-
vation clerks to the busdrivers who
get them to the airport on time.

P.C. Electrical Rates

Will Be Increased

Beginning Next Month
Panama Canal electrical rates for
employees will be increased ap-
proximately 15 percent, effective
with the July meter readings.
The effects of this increase will
not be apparent to the consumer
until he receives his pay statement
of September 8.
Canal electric rates are based on
comparability with the Tennessee
Valley Authority. When the TVA
rates go up as a reflection of
higher fuel costs, Panama Canal
rates must follow.

Pilots Say

'Get Well'

In 12 Ways

"Nadamo se da ce vase zadrza-
vanje u bolnici biti kratho i mi
vam zelimo brzo ozdravlejenje i
sretan povratak u vasu dormovinu"
and "Perastika" and "We wish you
a speedy recovery" are three of
the greetings on the Panama Canal
Pilots Association's get-well cards.
The cover of the card is a re-
production of a painting of the ship
World Spirit entering Gatun Locks.
Inside, the card carries the
words "The Panama Canal Pilots
Association is concerned with the
welfare of all men of the sea" on
one side and get-well wishes in
12 languages on the other.
In addition to sending cards to
hospitalized seamen, members of
the association's hospital commit-
tee and their wives attempt to
brighten the lonely stay of stran-
gers in Canal Zone hospitals on
both sides of the Isthmus.
They have visited and provided
services to 425 seamen and pas-
sengers from 49 countries who
have been patients at Gorgas or
Coco Solo Hospital.
Their dedication has earned
them letters of appreciation from
consular officials, shipmasters and
individuals-even one from the
Mexican Symphony Orchestra.
To their collection of letters of
thanks, the pilots association last
week added a letter from Gov.
H. R. Parfitt in which he wrote
that the hospital committee's ac-
tivities "are most commendable and
reflect great credit on your asso-
A member of the association,
Capt. C. O. Barrett, designed and

ANSWER: There has never been a proven case of breast cancer arising
from an area of injury.
However, because the breast is in an exposed position, it is subject
to frequent injury. It is protected from most blows because the delicate
breast structure is surrounded by fat and a tough substance called fibrous
tissue. Protection also comes from the skin which covers the whole
Occasionally there may be bleeding beneath the skin, which can cause
a discoloration or even a mass. This can be very frightening . . . but it
is not cancer.
There is no connection between the development of breast cancer and
injuries to the breast or even frequent manipulation as sometimes
happens in love-making.
The breast is also subject to inflaimations, irritations or infections.
Sometimes an abscess requiring surgical treatment may form. None of
these has any relation to breast cancer.

Railroad To Cut

4 Weekend Trains

From Schedule

Two Saturday night trains and
two Sunday night trains will be
discontinued on July 5 and 6.
A decline in the number of pas-
sengers using the weekend freight
trains contributed to the Railroad
Division's decision to conserve
energy by discontinuing the four
round-trip runs.
Train No. 41 that departs Dia-
blo at 7:45 p.m. and train No. 42
that departs Mount Hope at 8 p.m.
will be taken off the Panama Rail-
road's weekend schedule.
The last freight train run on
Saturday and Sunday evenings will
be on June 29.
The trains will operate as sched-
uled Monday through Friday.

Swim Meet To Be Held

At Balboa Pool SaFe Boarding Teams

Mrs. Margaret "Jo" Jones, a
pioneer of the Special Education
Program in the Canal Zone who
retired in 1971 and retired a sec-
ond time last month, was recently
selected "Teacher of the Year" of
the public and private schools in
Pinellas County, Fla.
According to a feature story
about Mrs. Jones in a Florida
newspaper, she was to be pre-
sented a special award by U.S.
Senator Richard Stone.
Known as the "mother superior"
of Special Education in the Canal
Zone, Mrs. Jones was instrumental
in starting classes for the "special"
children, the handicapped, re-
tarded, emotionally disturbed and
those with learning disabilities.
She has been teaching for the past
3 \ears at the Morning Star School,
a school for special children at
Pinellas Park, near St. Petersburg.
Though she retired at the end of
the school year, she asked to be
placed on a voluntary status in
order to work with her students on
a part-time basis.
A teacher who had taught in
Florida for several years, Mrs.
Jones came to the Isthmus in 1956
to visit her daughter, Mrs. Frank
Sullivan. She liked the Canal Zone
so much she decided to stay and
joined the Division of Schools. Her
first assignment was at the old Mar-
garita Elementary School for a
few months and then at the Fort
Kobbe Elementary School. She was
selected for training in special edu-
cation and went to Columbia Uni-
versity where she earned a mas-
ter's degree. Returning to the
Canal Zone, Mrs. Jones was the
first to teach handicapped children
when the classes were held in a
little suite of rooms at Gorgas Hos-
pital. Classes were later moved to
a specially equipped room at the
Balboa Elementary School and
then to Fort Clayton, where she
taught from 1966 to 1971, when
she retired. Each summer for 7
years, Mrs. Jones continued grad-
uate studies in special education.
Prior to her departure from the
Canal Zone, she was presented a
Panama Canal Outstanding Per-
formance Award for her excep-
tional services to the handicapped
children of the Canal Zone.
In the feature story, she is re-
cognized for doing much more
than just being the sensitive kind
of teacher that the children need
by giving her time after school,
and motivating the children to
achieve in the widest categories.
She always made sure they had a
birthday cake, often baking it her-

self. She took pupils home if they
missed the bus, held swimming
parties for them and did innumer-
able other things for the children.
Her granddaughter, Nan Sul-
livan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Sullivan of Diablo Heights,
apparently has inherited grand-
mother's concern for the special
children and has worked with the
Special Education children for the
past two summers. Mrs. Sullivan
is administrative assistant for the
Federal Highway Administration
in Ancon. Frank Sullivan is a
postal supervisor with the Postal

Make Recomendations

It is a rare ship that transits the
Panama Canal with properly rigged
boarding ladders.
That is one of the conclusions
reached during Safe Boarding
Week, a program designed to give
increased emphasis to the Canal's
year-round effort to promote safe
boarding and debarking standards
for all transiting vessels.
Injuries sustained by Canal
pilots and others whose jobs re-
quire them to board ships prompted
the Marine Bureau to undertake
the ambitious educational program.
The cooperation of the Panama
Canal Pilots Association, represen-
tatives of Isthmus-based steamship
agencies and others helped insure
its success.
Safe Boarding Week was the
idea of Capt. Robert D. Valentine,
president of the pilot's association
and a board member of the Inter-
national Maritime Pilots' Associa-
tion. During a week of planning,
Captain Valentine conducted sem-
inars on both sides of the Isthmus
for the men who would make up
the inspection teams.
Eight hours a day for 5 days,
Board-With-Safety teams com-
posed of a Panama Canal pilot',
Assistant Port Captain, admeasurer,
safety officer, training and safety
bosun for Canal deckhands and a
shipping agency representative
inanned a Panama Canal launch at
both the Atlantic and Pacific ter-
minals of the Canal.

The teams inspected the board-
ing facilities of 114 ships-47 in
Balboa and 67 at Cristobal-against
a check list made up from. inter-
national and Panama Canal stand-
The check list was broken down
into four main categories: general
condition of boarding facilities;
pilot's ladder; pilot hoist; and
accommodation .ladder.
Only four vessels complied with
all of the safe boarding require-
ments set up for ships transiting
the Panama Canal.
Deficiencies on the remaining
110 ships reached staggering pro-
portions. As many as 89 percent
did not have boat spars properly
rigged on accommodation ladders
and 85 percent did not carry a life
ring with line and water light
The teams concluded that lack
of supervision was the chief cause
of deficiencies since the majority
of ships had proper equipment
aboard which was either impro-
perly rigged or not in use at all.
Cooperative crewmen played an
important role in the educational
program by correcting deficiencies
as they were pointed out by the
inspection teams.
A study of the teams' findings is
expected to lead to the following
. . . That the operators of un-
usually high-sided ships such as
car carriers and container ships be
encouraged to fit their ships with
lower-deck, side-port boarding fa-
cilities in lieu of excessively long
accommodation ladders;
S. . That all vessels which have
ladders more than 30 feet long
and on which it would be un-
practical to provide lower-deck
side ports, utilize a pilot ladder-
accommodation ladder combination
because pilot hoists are neither safe
nor fast enough to accommodate
handling of the numerous Canal
seamen necessary for transits of
the Panama Canal; and
S. . That accommodation ladders
for all new ships be designed and
constructed for placement on the
flat hull side of the ship, leading
The enthusiastic response and
cooperation of those involved in
this year's Safe Boarding Week
has encouraged the Panama Canal
Marine Bureau to begin plans for
an annual program to maintain an
awareness of the need for safe
boarding facilities.

CZC Spring Semester

Dean's List Announced

Students who have been in-
cluded on the Dean's Honor List
for the Spring semester have been
announced by Dr. Glen E. Mur-
phy, Dean of Canal Zone College.
To merit this academic honor,
students had to be enrolled on a
full-time basis and must have com-
pleted the semester with an over-
all 3.0 or B average.
In announcing the honor list of
students, Dean Murphy also em-
phasized that more students are
achieving this honor than in pre-
vious years. He attributed this to
the early admissions and early
graduation policies of Balboa and
Cristobal high schools, whereby
more of the academically talented
students are enrolling in the Canal
Zone College, as well as to the
increasing number of adult stu-
dents who attend on a full-time
basis and who pursue their studies
with serious purposes.
The following students com-
pleted the semester with 4.0 or
straight A averages: Sonja M.
Akins, Madelon L. Brown, Betty
Burs, Marshall Couch, Doris J.
Gallegos, Barbaree Johnson, Sharon
E. Kirkby, Monica E. Kupfer, Kim

Questions and Answers

Q. What is Deposit Service?
A. Deposit service is a period of
creditable Federal civilian service
during which no Civil Service Reti-
rement deductions were withheld
from the employee's salary. Exam-
ples of such service include most
temporary appointments not in ex-
cess of 1 year and most indefinite
appointments. Your personnel office
can help you identify deposit
Q. Must an employee pay for
creditable deposit service in order
to receive retirement credit for the
A. No, payment of the deposit
is optional with the employee and
failure to make the deposit will not
deprive the employee of credit for
the service in the computation of
his annuity benefit.
Q. Why make a deposit?
A. By making a deposit, the em-
ployee will receive the maximum

Model Hours Change
Effective June 24, the hours at
the topographical model of the
Panama Canal at the Civil Affairs
Building will be changed. The
new hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
Tuesday through Saturdays. The
model will be closed on Sundays
and Mondays.

annuity benefit payable by law.
Failure to make a deposit will re-
sult in the yearly annuity benefit
being reduced by an amount equal
to one-tenth of the amount of de-
posit, plus interest due at time of
retirement. For example, if a re-
tiring employee has an unpaid de-
posit which amounts to $500, the
yearly reduction in his or her an-
nuity will be one-tenth of $500, or
$50. Since annuity payments are
made on a monthly basis, the reduc-
tion on a monthly basis would be
approximately $4.
Consequently, by paying a $500
deposit, the employee would in-
crease his (or her) annuity benefit
by approximately $4 per month. At
approximately $4 per month in in-
creased annuity benefits, it would
take the employee approximately
125 months (or 10 years 1 month)
to recover the investment of $500 in
the form of increased annuity bene-
fits. In addition, a married employee
retiring under identical circumstan-
ces, who elects to provide full sur-
vivor annuity benefits for his (or
her) spouse would, by completing
payment of $200 deposit, not only
increase his benefit by approxi=
mately $4 per month, but would
also increase the survivor annuity
benefit payable by approximately
$2 per month.

SPCA Seeking

Volunteer Help
The volunteers who joined forces
to reactivate the SPCA facility at
Corozal need help.
During the hours the facility is
open-1 to 4 p.m., Monday through
Friday-the volunteers feed, groom,
walk and provide other care neces-
sary to keep the homeless animals
in tiptop shape.
The SPCA volunteers remind
you that an adopted pet brings to
your home the only love you can
buy for the price of a license tag.
If you would like to donate time
or to get information about adopt-
ing an animal, call 52-6396 any
weekday between 1 and 4 p.m.
Before adoption, the SPCA per-
sonnel will assure that the animal
has required shots.
Because the personnel of the
Small Animal Clinic are busy all
day and many hours of the night
providing routine and emergency
care to the ever-increasing num-
ber of pets in the Canal Zone, they
are unable to answer queries about
or show the SrPCA animals when
that facility is closed.

Brayton y Lee Recil

Distinci6n Presidenc

Donald R. Brayton, quien fue
Gerente de la Divisi6n de Ferro-
carril y actualmente es Subdirector
de Transporte y Terminales junto
con Frank A. Lee, Jefe de la Divi-
si6n de Electricidad, han recibido
reconocimiento de parte del Presi-
dente de los Estados Unidos, de-
bido a sus excepcionales contribu-
ciones en el campo de las mejoras
El Gobernador H. R. Parfitt en-
treg6 el Premio Presidencial por
Mejoras Administrativas a Brayton
y el Certificado Presidencial por
Mejoras Administrativas a Lee, la
semana pasada, en el curso de una
ceremonia a la que asistieron los
miembros del Comit6 de Presu-
puesto y Finanzas de la Junta Di-
rectiva del Canal de Panama.
Brayton es el primer miembro
de la empresa del Canal de Pana-
ma que recibe la codiciada placa
por sus logros individuals.
Para Brayton, quien dice "amo
al Ferrocarril de PanamA de la
manera como s61o puede quererlo
un 'viejo ferrocarrilero'," tiene un
significado muy especial el que se
le cite por su "dinamico liderazgo
como Gerente del Ferrocarril de
Panama, mediante el cual sac6 al
ferrocarril de una condici6n de cri-
sis financiera y operational y lo
convirti6 en un medio de transpor-
te seguro, exitoso y confiable".
Lee recibi6 un certificado por
sus logros en la conservaci6n de
energia, reducci6n en los costs y
administraci6n de personal.
Cada afio, el Premio Presidencial
por Mejoras Administrativas hace
reconocimiento a individuos, equi-
pos y entidades cuyos logros du-
rante el afio han mejorado mas la
efectividad de operaci6n dentro del
Gobierno Federal o cuyas ideas
han reducido substancialmente los
costs al Gobierno.
En una carta personal a Bray-
ton, el Presidente Ford expresa su
agradecimiento y sus m6s calidas
Dice asi: "Sus contribuciones so-
bresalientes al cambiar la fisono-
mia de la Divisi6n de Ferrocarril
de la Compafiia del Canal de Pa-
nama, no s61o han producido sig-
nificativos ahorros en el costo, sino
que han proporcionado a PanamA
el lnico medio de transport ma-
sivo para personas y mercancias a
trav6s del Istmo.
El President alab6 a Brayton
por sus esfuerzos, que "han esta-
blecido un ejemplo sobresaliente
para todos los empleados Federa-

viaja rumbo al Pacifico Sur, donde estarA estacionado
para servir como estaci6n rastreadora auxiliar de la
pr6xima misi6n espacial Apollo-Soyuz. Dos buques

Son raros los buques que
transitan por el Canal de
Panama y que cuentan con
escalas de abordaje debida-
mente aparejadas.
Esta es una de las conclu-
siones a que se lleg6 duran-
te la Semana del Abordaje
Seguro, program destinado
a darle mayor 6nfasis a los
permanentes esfuerzos que
se hacen en el Canal para
implantar normas seguras de
abordaje y desembarco.
Lesiones sufridas por prac-
ticos y otro personal del Ca-
nal, cuyas tareas exigen que
aborden los barcos, hicieron
que la Direcci6n de Marina
emprendiera este ambicioso
program educativo. La co-
operaci6n de la Asociaci6n
de Pricticos del Canal de
Panama, de los representan-
tes de empresas navieras ins-
taladas en el Istmo y otros,
ayudaron a garantizar el
6xito del program.

Llega Nave


De la NASA
El buque de la Armada de los
Estados Unidos Vanguard, nave
rastreadora operada por civiles y
perteneciente al Comando Militar
de Transport, llegara a la Esta-
ci6n Naval Auxiliar maiiana. La
nave se dirige hacia el Pacifico
Sur, donde servirA como rastrea-
dora auxiliar de la pr6xima misi6n
espacial Apollo-Soyuz.
El U.S.S. Vanguard, al comando
del CapitAn Harry Anderson, tiene
una tripulaci6n de 86 marines del
Servicio Civil y es operado por la
Armada para la Administraci6n Na-
cional de AeronAutica y el Espacio
(NASA). La nave Ileva a bordo a
72 cientificos y t6cnicos. Perma-
necera en Rodman hasta el lunes
y se admitiran visitantes de 9 a 11
a.m. y de 1 a 3 p.m.
El Vanguard servirA como auxi-
liar en el vuelo espacial conjunto
de Estados Unidos y la Uni6n So-
vi6tica que se iniciara el 15 de
julio, 2 dias despu6s que el Van-
guard se coloque en la posici6n
que le 'ha sido asignada, a 1.400
millas de la costa de Australia.
El Vanguard desempefiard exac-
tamente el mismo papel que de-
sempefiaran las estaciones rastrea-
doras de tierra, que estaran situa-
das en toda la superficie del globo,
rastreando a las naves espaciales
Apollo y Soyuz, cuando pasen en-
cima de 61. Dos buques rusos, ha-
rAn la misma tarea, uno estacio-
nado cerca del CanadA y otro fue-
ra de la costa de Chile.

Cuando una nave utiliza tanto la escala del practice como la
escala principal, las dos escalas deben estar lo suficientemente
cerca como para permitir pasar con seguridad. Ademas, la plata-
forma de la base debe estar en forma horizontal y las barras que
separan los escalones deben estar aseguradas.

tico del Canal. Cada equipo

de Seguridad para los Pasa-

Contra Crueldad

A los Animales
Un grupo de esposas de milita-
res ha reactivado la instalacion
para la Prevenci6n de la Crueldad
con los Animales (SPCA), en Co-
Dirigido por la Sra. Nadine Us-
tick, el grupo mantiene dicho es-
tablecimiento abierto de lunes a
viernes y de 1 a 4 p.m.
Los perros, gatos y demAs ani-
malitos que son recogidos por el
perrero son entregados a la clinic
de animalitos de Corozal y si no
son reclamados entonces se los
traslada a la SPCA.
Los animals son mantenidos en
jaulas proporcionadas por la Di-
visi6n de Veterinaria en la clinic
de animals en la esperanza de
que sean adoptados por alguien.
Eventualmente, si nadie los quiere,
se les pone a dormir. La raz6n es
que la SPCA s61o puede tender
una cantidad limitada de animals,
debido al limitado ni'mero de jau-
las de que dispone.

SPCA es el 52-6396, a donde pue-

que trabajan bajo su direcci6n haya sufrido una sola lesi6n causante de

Muchas mujeres se preocupan por la aparici6n repentina de
abultamientos en las mamas. Su preocupaci6n cesa completa-
mente cuando se dan cuenta los abultamientos contienen liquid
que puede extraerse empleando una aguja.
Esta clase de problems es comin y require examenes
regulars. Hay una diferencia de opinion entire los experts
con respect a si estos quistes pueden degenerar en un tumor
El riesgo en aumento, si es que lo hay, es much menor y,
por lo menos, sera del conocimiento de personas autorizadas en
la material. Afortunadamente, estos grandes quistes tienden a
desaparecer despu6s de la menopausia y entonces la mujer
afectada exhalara un suspiro de alivio.
Es important observer que esos grandes quistes no son de
los que se conocen como "enfermedades fibrocisticas", t6rmino
empleado con frecuencia para describir la consistencia abul-
tada de la mayoria de los senos normales. Esa expresi6n des-
cribe una situaci6n vaga, no claramente definida, que proba-
blemente no est6 del todo relacionada con el desarrollo del
cAncer de las mamas. Posiblemente dicho t6rmino no deberia
ser empleado por los facultativos tan a menudo como lo es, ya
que 61 s6lo sirve para asustar a muchas mujeres que poseen
senos completamente normales.

La Feria del Corozo Africano en
Col6n se efectuarA este aflo del 15
al 16 de agosto pr6ximo en un es-
trat6gico sector de la playa de la
Costa Abajo de Col6n, a alturas
de la poblaci6n de Icacal, seg6n
informes suministrados por Cesar
Rafael GonzAlez, president del
Comit6 Organizador de este event.
Dado el excelente lugar escogido
para exhibir las muestras que se
presented se ha augurado un 6xito
sin precedentes a esta actividad
ferial. El Area de la feria queda
pr6ximo a las casas que dan frente
al mar en la poblaci6n de Icacal.
Para ir a Icacal se toma la Ca-

Que se exhorte a los armadores
de barcos con costados extraordi-
nariamente altos, como los trans-
portadores de autom6viles y los
furgoneros, a que doten a sus na-
ves con instalaciones de abordaje
en las cubiertas inferiores para no
tener que utilizar las excesivamen-
te largas escaleras principles;
Que todas las naves que tengan
escalas de mas de 30 pies de lar-
go y en las que no seria prictico
proporcionar entradas en las cu-
biertas inferiores, utilicen una com-
binaci6n de escala de prActico y
escala principal, debido a que los
cabrestantes para prActicos no son
seguros ni lo suficientemente rA-
pidos como para tender a los nu-
merosos marines del Canal que se
necesitan para las naves en tran-
sito por la via interoceAnica, y
Que las escalas principles para
todos los barcos nuevos sean dise-
fiadas y construidas para ser colo-
cadas en el lado plano del casco,
hacia la popa.

con que respondieron todos los que
participaron en la Semana del
