More Than 60 Years of Service to World Commerce

The Panama Canal Spillway

Friday, August 15, 1975

Vol. XIV, No. 7

Absorbed in her work, Sea Explorer Kim Briggs takes a measurement
on canvas as part of the finishing touches on the aft cabin of the 53-foot
schooner "Chief Aptakisic." She is one of a group of Sea Explorers
working to transform the weather worn boat into a shipshape vessel
worthy of representing the Canal Zone community in the Windjammer
Parade that will be part of the Bicentennial celebration in the United
States next year. Everything needed for the refurbishing job, except
the labor, is paid for by donations made by contributors who pay $17.76
to become members of the Windjammer Club.

Rehabilitation Program

For Alcoholics Working

The Canal Zone's Alcoholic Re-
habilitation Program is working,
according to a study made by Jack
H. Tinnin, a clinical social worker
and member of the rehabilitation
Tinnin's study of the first 26
male Panama Canal employees to
enter the program uncovered an
unusual success story: 21 of the 26
remained sober for a year; 15 of
those 21 did not take a drink for
another 6 months, and 9 still have
not had a drink after 3 years or
And those figures only tell of
the initial period of treatment.
Many of the men who "fell off the
wagon" later reentered the pro-
gram with more success.

Program staff of the Canal Zone
Mental Health Center defines alco-

holism as the loss of control of
one's life through the abuse of
alcohol. An alcoholic is a person
who has job, health, family and
community living problems that
are directly related to his drink-
The program benefits both the
employee and the Company. Most
participants are experienced work-
ers with above-average perform-
ance levels. So, as they save their
jobs and retirement benefits, the
Company conserves seasoned and
skilled manpower.
The staff first helps the em-
ployee stop drinking, then sup-
ports him as he tries to change
his lifestyle so he does not feel
the need to drink.
No one is forced to enter the
program against his will, although
his employing agency may offer
him a choice between treatment
and disciplinary action. The deci-
sion is the employee's.
Treatment begins with a 10-day
stay in the health center and con-
tinues through an outpatient phase
that lasts a year or more.
A participant cannot be helped
unless he fulfills his part of the
treatment contract by working to-
ward his own rehabilitation.
Antabuse, a drug which pro-
duces nausea and other unpleasant
symptoms when combined with
alcohol, is prescribed for most par-
ticipants. If health center records
show that one has missed his Ant-
abuse treatment, the staff meets
with him to discuss his commit-
ment. The employee either renews
his treatment contract or ter-
minates his participation in the
Therapy groups play an im-
portant part in the outpatient
phase of treatment by providing a
forum where the participant can
discuss his goals, successes and
failures with people in similar si-
tuations. The group challenges the
alcoholic to change his life-style
and supports him in his rehabilita-
tion efforts by keeping the self-

Underway at

C.Z. College
Registration for fall semester
classes at the Canal Zone College
has been continuing during the
summer session, and the period of
August 18-25 will be devoted
completely to fall semester enroll-
ment, according to an announce-
ment made by Dr. Glen E. Mur-
phy, Dean. Students who are in-
terested in matriculating for fall
semester courses can do so daily,
Monday through Friday, during
regular office hours. Classes for the
fall term will begin August 26.
A broad selection of course offer-
ings has been planned in each de-
partment of the Canal Zone Col-
lege, and many class sections have
been scheduled from 4:40 to 9:30
p.m. to accommodate employed per-
sons who wish to pursue college
courses on a part-time basis. Class
schedules and enrollment forms
can be secured from the adminis-
trative office of the college, Room
209. Counselors are on duty to
approve admission of new stu-
dents and to advise students.
A schedule change fee of $2 is
being charged this semester for
making schedule changes once the
registration process has been com-
pleted. From August 26 through
the late registration period, a late
registration fee of $5 for full-time
students and $2 for part-time stu-
dents will also be charged.
Students interested in enrolling
should do so as soon as possible
to be assured of the class schedule
they wish to select.

A Reminder to Divers
Divers are reminded that in case
of diving emergencies where a re-
compression chamber is required
they should contact the Canal
Zone Police (Balboa 52-7862 or
52-3345 and Cristobal 43-2111).
The patient should then be
transported immediately to the
nearest recompression chamber.
Chambers are located on the At-
lantic side on Salvage Barge U.S.
208, docked at the Salvage Depot
and Diving School next to the
Catun Yacht Club. On the Pacific
side the chamber is located on the
Canal end of Building 1, Balboa
Industrial Area, next to Drydock
No. 1.

Preliminary data on the survey
to check and adjust overhead light-
ing levels in all Panama Canal
Company-Canal Zone Government
buildings (excluding residences) in-
dicates that there is still room for
more energy savings.
The survey program, being car-
ried out on instructions given by
Lt. Gov. Richard L. Hunt, follows
the Federal Energy Administra-
tion directives which specify that
energy consumed for lighting shall
be reduced by removing nonessen-
tial lamps and fixtures and by ap-
plying nonuniform lighting stand-
ards to existing lighting systems.
They also include guidelines for
illumination at work stations (at a
desk, for example), in work areas
(the area around desks) and non-
working areas, such as hallways.
Under the new guidelines, rec-
ommended overhead lighting levels
during normal working hours are
approximately: 50 footcandles at
work stations, 30 footcandles in
work areas, and 10 footcandles (in
no case, less than 1 footcandle) in
nonworking areas. A "footcandle"
is a standard unit used to.measure
the amount of available light in a
given area.
To date, the Electrical Division
has taken action to reduce illumi-
nation levels in certain areas by
removing nonessential lights. In
performing a survey, priority has
been given to school facilities now
that they are closed for summer
vacation. Also, a considerable num-
ber of other Company-Government
buildings have been visited to date.
The information gathered is sent

Implementation of the directive
which brought about the survey
will produce noteworthy tangible
benefits in the form of reduced
energy consumption. Engineer
Francisco SiA of the Electrical Di-
vision, who reviews the data ob-
tained, points out that, since re-
moval of two tubes in each light-
ing fixture would save about $3.75
a year, carrying this out in each
of the 80 fixtures in the main offi-
ces of the Electrical Division alone
would produce an estimated annual
savings of $300.

Waterway Is 61

Years Old Today
Today marks 61 years since the
Panama Canal began serving inter-
national commerce.
The Canal officially was inaugu-
rated August 15,' 1914, when the
vessel Ancon, the old cement car-
rier of Canal construction days,
made her first official transit of the
waterway. Aboard were a number
of personages of the day, including
Dr. Belisario Porras, the President
of the Republic of Panama.
As a matter of curiosity, Col.
George Goethals, the man who di-
rected and was most responsible
for the successful completion of
the Canal, was not aboard. Prep-
ared for any possible emergency.
Colonel Goethals followed the epic
transit from land; first from the
Atlantic gateway, where the transit
began, then from Gatun Locks, to
Pedro Miguel and Miraflores, fol-
lowing the transit through Culebra
Cut, as Gaillard Cut was known
at that time.
Happily, there were no prob-
lems during that first transit, and
since then more than 400,000 ves-
sels from all the world's nations
have carried in their holds a mul-
titude of goods, destined for the
far covers of the globe.
The myriad cargoes that have
gone through the Canal, in addi-
tion to the major commodities,
have ranged from small boats
aboard ships and drydocks that
have had to be put on their sides
to fit through the lock chambers,
to animals for the zoos of the
world. Merchant vessels of almost
every nation, battleships and car-
riers and the hospital ship HOPE,
which has taken medical help to
many parts of the world, have
been part of the passing parade of
ships transiting the waterway.
From the beginning, improve-
ments have been made continu-
ously to upgrade its effectiveness.
Gaillard Cut has been widened
from 300 feet to 500 feet, the
channel has been deepened per-
mitting a minimum draft of 38
feet. Lighting has been installed
along both sides of Gaillard Cut
and at the entrances of the Canal
permitting ships to transit 24 hours
a day, every day of the year.

Parents Play Big Part

In Health Team EFForts

The success of the Canal Zone
School Health Program requires
the joint efforts of the school
health team and the students'
parents. .
A school health nurse with the
support of the school physician,
school dentist and, if required,
specialists from Canal Zone hos-
pitals make up the school health
The program includes care for
injuries or illness that occur at
school, consultation with parents
and teachers about students' health
problems, health screening pro-
grams and health education.
Care at school is limited to rest
for a minor illness and first aid for
a small accident but parents are
informed by phone of medical
problems so that care may be ar-
ranged with the family physician.

cannot be located, the child will
be sent to the hospital for emer-
gency care. There is no charge for
ambulance service to Gorgas or
Coco Solo Hospital.
While the school health staff
coordinates its efforts toward
health maintenance with the stu-
dent, parents and family doctors,
parents can assist by-
. .keeping children at home
if they show signs of illness,
. . . calling the school if the
student must be home for more
than a few days,
S . . having a doctor write a
note if a child is unable to take
part in sports or physical educa-
tion because of an injury or illness
stating what the student is unable
to do and how long the disability
will last, and
. . . notifying the school nurse
or one of the counselors if a child
must take medication during school
hours. The nurse should be given
the name of the medicine and
times when it should be taken so
it can be kept in the school clinic
and taken there.
The school nurse is always will-

Clinton Street


Is Progressing

Work is progressing rapidly on
the realinement of Clinton Street
which is one part of the first phase
in the present Canal Zone traffic
improvement program.
The realinement of the street
where it passes between the Bal-

Balboa Stadium involves moving
the street to the north. This will
increase the capacity of the hold-
ing lane for vehicles turning left
from Roosevelt Avenue onto Bal-
boa Road, and will improve the
movement of vehicles turning be-
tween Roosevelt Avenue and Clin-
ton Street.
When the realinement work is
completed, the parking areas on
both sides of the street will be

holic drinking fresh in his mind.
A participant's family is also part
of the program. The team talks to
the husband or wife when an em-
ployee is admitted, and some
spouses continue with counseling
Family members often are in-
volved in important treatment deci-
sions as when the discontinuance
of Antabuse is under consideration.
Once in treatment and back on
the job, the participant is expected
to produce like any other worker.
The staff emphasizes to employee
and supervisor alike that the pro-
gram is designed not to protect
alcoholics from the consequences
of irresponsible behavior but to
enable them to stop drinking and
cope with life.
The Alcoholic Rehabilitation
Program deals with a different
kind of alcoholic from the one
who usually participates in Alco-
holics Anonymous. The AA mem-
ber is more self-motivated. He
knows he has a drinking problem,
while the employee referred to the
Alcoholic Rehabilitation Program
frequently does not believe he is
an alcoholic.
The program staff collaborates
with Alcoholics Anonymous, the
Gorgas Psychiatric Clinic, military
agencies and others who treat or
deal with alcoholics.
Participants in the program are
encouraged to become involved
with AA, and AA groups hold
meetings for inpatients.

The skewered dumpster above shows what happened when someone
threw an old iron rail in the trash container. To prevent such costly
damage to trash collection equipment, Grounds Maintenance officials
are making an urgent plea to the general public to refrain from throwing
large metal objects in the trash bins. Trash containers are for the
disposal of paper, flattened cardboard boxes, and other "dry" trash that
will not cut or otherwise damage the equipment used to collect it. Old
air-conditioners, refrigerators, washers and other large items which res-
idents want to get rid off should be placed at curb side or beside the
trash container where they will be picked up by a special trash truck.

para verificar y ajustar los niveles
de iluminaci6n direct en todos los
edificios de la Compania del Canal
de Panama y del Gobierno de la
Zona del Canal (con exclusion de
las residencias), indican que toda-
via existe margen para hacer ma-
yores reducciones en el consume
de energia.
El studio, que fue llevado a
cabo por instrucciones del Vice-
gobernador Richard L. Hunt, obe-
dece a 6rdenes de la Administra-
ci6n Federal de Energia, en las
que se especifica que debe redu-
cirse el consume de energia, en lo
que se refiere a iluminaci6n, qui-
tando lAmparas que no sean esen-

1 pie-bujia), en las Areas donde no

$3.75 al afio, si se hace esa ope-
raci6n en cada una de las 80 lam-

El Canal Cumple Hoy 61 Anos

El Canal de PanamA cumple el
dia de hoy 61 afios de haber ini-
ciado sus operaciones al servicio
del comercio y la navegaci6n del
Calificado como una de las ma-
ravillas de la ingenieria modern,
el Canal de PanamA ha sido mejo-
rado enormemente desde el 15 de
agosto de 1914, cuando el vapor
Ancdn, antiguo carguero de ce-
mento de los dias de la construc-
ci6n, hizo el primer trAnsito official
por la via interoceAnica, Ilevando
a bordo a numerosas personalida-
des, al frente de las cuales se en-
contraba el Presidente de la Rep6i-
blica de PanamA, Dr. Belisario
Como una curiosidad, se puede
hacer notar que el hombre que
habia dirigido y llevado a feliz
t6rmino la construcci6n del Canal

de Panama, via intermaritima de
transcendental importancia, no es-
taba a bordo del Anc6n. Listo para
dirigir las operaciones en caso de
cualquier emergencia imprevista,
el Coronel Goethals sigui6 desde
tierra la lenta march del barco;
primero en la entrada del Atlan-
tico, donde se inici6 el hist6rico
trAnsito, despu6s en las Esclusas
de Gat6n, luego en Pedro Miguel
y Miraflores y a lo largo del es-
trecho Corte de Culebra, como se
llamaba entonces al Corte Gail-
Pero el trinsito se hizo sin nin-
gun contratiempo y detrAs del
Anc6n han seguido mAs de 400,000
barcos de todas las naciones del
mundo que han Ilevado en sus bo-
degas articulos de toda clase, des-
tinados a puertos de todos los

Las listas de los cargamentos
transportados a bordo de esas na-
ves tienen aspects muy curiosos.
Han pasado naves pequefias a bor-
do de barcos; han transitado pla-
taformas perforadoras de petr6leo
en alta mar; han pasado por el
Canal diques secos de tremendo
ancho, que han tenido que ser co-
locados de costado para poder pa-
sar por las esclusas del Canal.
Tambien han transitado buques in-
teresantes. Desde acorazados y por-
taaviones, hasta buques hospitals
como el HOPE, que ha levado a
muchas parties del mundo aten-

PanamA se ha distinguido por ser
una via intermaritima de gran efi-
ciencia. Casi desde su inicio se

Al cumplir hoy sus 61 afios de constant servicio, el Canal de PanamA
continue conservando el 6ptimo nivel de eficiencia con que inici6 opera-
ciones, gracias al competent y consagrado personal con que cuenta. La

Una Llaga Puede Ser Peligrosa

Una laga que cicatriza muy len-
tamente puede ser exactamente eso
y, consecuentmntente, no represen-
tar ningun peligro para el indivi-
duo que la padece. Pero si la per-
sona habia estado por alg6n tiem-
po en la selva, entonces podria
ser una ulcera tropical, del tipo
conocido como leishmaniasis, en-
fermedad peligrosa transmitida a
los humans por la picada de una
mosca selvAtica.

rrido Panamai-Taboga-Panamia.

Cazadores, exploradores y per-
sonal military son victims con al-
guna frecuencia de esta clase de
afecciones, debido a que suelen
visitar regularmente zonas selvAti-
cas. Tambi6n son susceptibles a pi-
cadas de las moscas que transmni-
ten la leishmaniasis, personas que
sc hallen en las proximidades de
estas areas por la noche.
Algunas medidas que protegen
considerablemente contra los ries-
gos de ser picado por la mosca
transmisora de la leishmaniasis in-
clu\en usar ropas que cubran el
cuerpo, los brazos y las piernas;
aplicarse repelente contra insects
en Ia piel que se encuentre ex-
puesta y dormir protegido por una
ialla o mosquitero.
Aunque la mosca puede encon-
trarsc en cualquier zona selvAitica,

Ernesto Malcolm, joven prome-
sa del baloncesto panamefio que
se gradu6 el afio pasado de la
Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso,
abandonara pr6ximamente el Ist-
ino, para disfrutar de merecida
beca que se le ha otorgado para
realizar studios superiores en la
Universidad Briar Cliff, de Iowa.
Estudiaral ingenieria el6ctrica y
El joven Malcolm trabaj6 hasta
la semana pasada con la Secci6n
de Despacho de Correos. El ailo
pasado trabaj6 como ayudante es-
tudiantil con el Almac6n de Ven-
tas al Detal de Balboa. Reside
con sus padres en Rio Abajo, ciu-
dad de Panama.
Ernesto es hijo de una lumina-
ria del deported panamenio, Philip
Malcolm, jubilado del Canal de
PanamA que en sus afios mozos
destac6 en pista y campo y en
beisbol. Malcolm padre trabaja en
las oficinas del Sindicato Nacional
de Marinos. La madre de Ernesto,
Emely, es antigua empleada del
Canal de Panama y trabaja actual-
mente en el Almac6n de Ventas
al Detal de Gamboa.
A diferencia de su padre, que
destac6 principalmente como co-
rredor y como beisbolista, Ernesto
ha logrado desarrollar excepcio-
nales facultades en baloncesto.
"Me inicii en ligas organizadas
de baloncesto cuando apenas tenia
12 afios de edad", sefiala Ernesto,
quien saca muy buen provecho de
los 6 pies 4 pulgadas que tiene de
estatura. "Desearia Ilegar hasta
los 6 pies 6 pulgadas", sefiala al
hacer referencia a su tamafio.
Recuerda el joven atleta, de 19
afios de edad, que la primera liga
organizada en que particip6 tuvo
lugar en Gamboa y fue organizada
por JosC French, ex instructor de
educaci6n fisica y actividades re-
creativas en la Zona del Canal,
actualmente jubilado.
Estelar de Paraiso
Alentado por French, por Jos6
Ampudia y Cecilio Williams, entire
otros, Malcolm continue activin-
dose en el baloncesto y cultivando
pericia en este deported. Sus pro-
gresos lo Ilevaron a integrar la se-
lecci6n mayor de baloncesto de la
Escuela Secundaria de Paraiso que
ha ganado el Campeonato Interco-
legial de Baloncesto de la Zona
del Canal en los iltimos 3 afios.
En 2 de los 3 afios en que re-
present6 a Paraiso en torneos in-
tercolegiales fue seleccionado en
el equipo de estrellas de la liga
y la Divisi6n de Escuelas le otorg6

un diploma de mnrito. En una
ocasi6n entrenadores de balonces-
to de Panami observaron su de-
sempenio y lo reclutaron junto a
otros compafieros de Paraiso en un
preseleccionado del que se inte-
graria el conjunto juvenile que ha-
bria de representar a PanamA en
el Primer Juvenil de Baloncesto
celebrado hace 2 afios en El TAi-
chira, Venezuela.
A Venezuela
PanamA gan6 invicto el cam-
peonato juvenile celebrado en El
Tachira, frente a otros cuatro
equipos representatives de otros
tantos paises. Malcolm jug6 en
todos los partidos, contribuyendo
notablemente al triunfo panamefio.
Al referirse a esa primera expe-
riencia international, Malcolm se-
fiala que se sinti6 muy orgulloso
de representar a Panami. "Ello me
permiti6, ademas, la oportunidad
de conocer v de alcanzar una
mayor experiencia".
En la Mayor
Posteriormente Malcolm partici-
p6 en una series cuadrangular ce-
lebrada en Panama entire El Sal-
vador, Uruguay, y dos equipos
panameiios, el Ingenio La Victo-
ria-con el que jug6 Malcolm-y
Bayano. El torneo, celebrado para
escoger la selecci6n panamefia que
representaria a PanamA en series
contra Argentina, concluy6 con un
triple empate entire los dos equi-
pos locales y el conjunto uruguayo.

La Ciudad de Panama f r

Hoy cumple 456 afios de fun-
dada la "Muy Noble y Muy Leal
Ciudad de PanamA", titulo que le
dieron los reyes de Espafia. O me-
jor, "La Siempre Verde y Siempre
Alegre Panama", calificativo que
le diera el gran literate espafiol
Vicente Blasco Ibinez.
Cuatrocientos cincuenta y seis
afios han pasado desde aquel dia
de la Asunci6n de la Virgen Maria,
en que el Gobernador de Castilla
del Oro, Don Pedro Arias De Avi-
la fund la ciudad, a poca dis-
tancia de un villorrio de indios
pescadores. En su 6poca de oro de
los tiempos de la Colonia, cobr6
importancia por ser el lugar donde
se guardaban los tesoros del Peru,
antes de enviarlos a Espaina y por-
que era el lugar de intercambio
mais activo que se conocia en toda
la costa americana del Pacifico.
El Panama de Hoy
Hoy, la ciudad de PanamA es,
quizAs el centro bancario mas im-
portante de America Latina. El
lugar done la ciudad se fund
hace mis de 4 siglos, ha sido
transformado en un bello jardin

done los turistas se Ilenan de
admiraci6n al ver la magnitude de
las edificaciones que hicieron los
espanioles en esa lejana 6poca.
Plaza de la Independencia
La foto de la derecha, la ofre-
ce el SPILLWAY como su homenaje
a esta fecha. Muestra un rinc6n
de la Plaza de la Independencia
en los primeros dias de la Repi-
blica. La artistic verja de hierro
que en ese entonces rodeaba el
parque, da una idea del aspect
romantico que tenia entonces ese
sector. El edificio de la izquierda
era el Arzobispado, donde tambidn
funcionaban las oficinas de la Lo-
teria Nacional de Panama y de la
Pacific Steam Navigation Co., o
Cia. Inglesa de Vapores. Al fondo,
la Casa Bancaria de la Familia
Ehrman, que tambi6n era agencia
de la Compania Sudamericana de
Vapores y de la Cia. Transatlan-
tica Francesa. Y rodando por la
calle, pavimentada de adoquines,
se alcanza a ver uno de los coaches
que en aquellos tiempos consti-
tuian el principal medio de loco-
moci6n de los panameiios.

Asi lucia un sector del Parque Catedral, justamente
en la parte que da al edificio que albergaba el
Arzobispado y que hoy es la sede de la Univer-
sidad Santa Maria La Antigua (USMA), hace

68 afios. La foto fue tomada en 1907 poco des-
pu6s de haberse pavimentado esa calle con ado-
quines. Ha cambiado bastante la ciudad, vverdad?
