Contributions

To CFC Climb

To 84% Goal
With only 8 days gone and 18
days to go, the Panama Canal or-
ganization achieved 84.4 percent of
its Combined Federal Campaign
goal early this week.
Reports show that Staff Units
became the third Panama Canal
unit to top its assigned goal with
contributions of $8,161 or 102 per-
cent.
The Supply and Community
Service Bureau, first Panama Canal
bureau over the top in this year's
drive, continued its climb with
139.6 percent of its goal reported
as of press time. The Personnel
Bureau, second over the top, stood
at 107.8 percent of its goal.
Still climbing were Financial Vice
President, 87.9 percent; Engineer-
ing and Construction, 88.1 percent;
Transportation and Terminals, 81
percent; Health, 60 percent; Civil
Affairs, 46.9 percent; and Marine
87.3 percent.
Reports of nonPanama Canal
agency contributions to the Com-
bined Federal Campaign were
beginning to come in. The Federal
Highway System had topped its
goal with 176.6 percent; Southern
Command had reached 59.5 per-
cent of its goal; and Navy had
achieved 31.3 percent.
According to Campaign head-
quarters, all contributions totaled
$212,103. This represented 55.1
percent of the overall goal of
$384,600 to be raised for the 1976
Canal Zone Combined Federal
Campaign.


Stores to Close

In R.P. Saturday

For Holiday
A crowd of more than 100,000
persons is expected to converge on
the New Panama Gymnasium off
Via Espafia near the Rem6n Race-
track tomorrow morning for a pro-
gram to observe the seventh anni-
versary of the Revolutionary Gov-
ernment.
Tomorrow has been designated
a national holiday in the Republic
of Panama.
Observances are being held this
morning at Independence Plaza,
formerly Cathedral Plaza, about
two blocks from the Presidential
Palace and it is expected that such
main roads as Avenida Central and
Avenida A will be clogged with
participants throughout most of the
day.
In addition to the program to-
morrow morning, there will be an
inaugural session of the commu-
nity representatives at noon and a
number of community celebrations
in the afternoon in virtually every
part of Panama City.
Stores will be closed in Panama
tomorrow. Canal Zone residents
are asked to cooperate in relieving
the severe traffic control problem
by avoiding the congested areas
whenever possible.
To facilitate traffic flow, the
C-15 Friendship Road (between
the Curundu Gas Station and Altos
del Chase) will remain open from
5:50 a.m. today until 8 p.m. on
Monday.


Miraflores Generator


Getting Overhauled


The Panama Canal power sys-
tem is presently operating in an
unusual manner and will continue
to do so until mid-January 1976.
Until then, Canal Zone residents
will continue to have their morn-
ing coffee heated every day as in
the past, though not in the most
economic way.
The power used in the Canal
Zone is supplied from many
sources, depending upon the sea-
son, the weather, availability of
generators and dispatching eco-
nomics. Power may flow to the con-
sumer from the hydroelectric gen-
erators at Madden Dam and Gatun
Dam; the gas turbine at Mount
Hope; the steam turbines and gas
turbines at Miraflores; the gas tur-


Above, No. 4 steam generator is
dismantled for maintenance after
rotor, which normally is seated atop
this bed of curved, permanent
blades, is repaired in the United
States. Left to right are: Sam
Medlin, machinist; Alfred Boyd,
helper; Ricardo Sandoval, top, ma-
chinist apprentice; and Nick Bau-
tin, machinist. At right, close-up
photo shows the damaged shroud,
or rim of the spindle on No. 4
steam turbine at Miraflores Power-
plant. Two rows of blades were
damaged as a result of the shroud
parting, requiring the entire 10-ton
spindle to be sent to the factory in
the United States for reblading.


Youths May Apply

For Vacancies at

Maritime Academy
Gov. H. R. Parfitt can nominate
10 candidates, to be selected by
competitive examination, for ap-
pointment to the July 1976 class in
the U.S. Merchant Marine Acad-
emy.
There are two vacancies for the
class of 1980, entering in July
1976.
To be eligible for nomination
by the Governor, an applicant must
be the son of a U.S.-citizen res-
ident of the Canal Zone or the son
of a U.S.-citizen employee of the
United States Government or of the
Panama Canal and residing in the
Republic of Panama. Sons of mil-
itary personnel are eligible.
Interested applicants should sub-
mit completed applications to their
high school principal's office by
Friday, November 7. The Com-
mittee on Appointments will meet
at 8:30 a.m., November 20, in the
Governor's Board Room to review
files. Candidates should report at
9:15 a.m. for their interviews.
Those interested should contact
their high school counselors for
applications and full details.

Call Housing Office
For Repairs to Ranges
Occupants of quarters who may
require repairs to company fur-
nished electric ranges after Octo-
ber 12 are requested to call their
respective district Housing office-
52-3384 (Pacific), 43-2148 (Atlan-
tic)-rather than the Electrical Di-
vision field offices.
This procedural change is being
made as a part of the overall main-
tenance controls program being ad-
ministered by the Housing Branch.

bines and diesel generators on
board the power barge Weber at

powered generator installed in the
power barge Sturgis moored near
Catun Locks; and from IRHE,
Panama's National Institute of Hy-

tion.
Least Expensive Way
The least expensive way to pro-
duce power is to use lake water
for hydroelectric generation. Gatun
and Madden lakes are almost full
at present and are being put to
use for this purpose. The next
cheapest method is to use another
form of water-steam turbine gen-
eration. The costliest method is to
use gas turbine generation. Under
normal conditions, the everyday
operation of the power system will
require the use of all methods of
generation, or some lesser combi-
nation thereof, depending up6n the
season and the lake levels.
The unusual situation presently
existing in the Canal's power sys-
tem began in June 1974 when an
abnormal vibration was noted dur-
ing routine operation of the No. 4
steam turbine at Miraflores. The
turbine was shut down immedia-
tely and opened for inspection. The
trouble was traced to portions of
two shrouds, or keepers, which
hold the blades in place on the
turbine. They had failed at the
normal operating speed of 3,600
rpm and the flying pieces had dam-
aged the last two rows of blades.
Reduced Capacity
Rather than shut down the en-
tire unit until new blades could be
manufactured, the Industrial Divi-
sion removed the two damaged
rows of blades and the unit was
put back into operation at reduced
capacity to handle dry season
power loads.
Later, in August of this year,
the No. 4 unit was shut down and
the rotor was flown by USAF cargo
aircraft, for repairs at the mann-

THE PANAMA CANAL SPILLWAY


Shuttling Judge Serves


Benches Coast-to-Coast


There is a lot in the news these
days about shuttle diplomacy but
few people know about the Canal's
shuttling judges.
The Canal Zone has two magis-
trate judges. Judge Darrell F.
Brown sits on the bench on the
Atlantic side of the Isthmus and
Judge John Baker on the Pacific
side. In instances of extended ill-
ness, prolonged business trips or
lengthy vacations, relief magistrates
may be assigned to sit in the sub-
division of the absent judge.
Otherwise, there is a proviso in
the Canal Zone Code which stipu-
lates that when either judge is not
available, the other may assume
his duties.
This is why the local judges
might someday find themselves in
the Guinness Book of Records as
the only judges in the world who
have presided over court on the
Pacific coast in the morning, taken
a transcontinental train trip, and
conducted court on the Atlantic
coast in the afternoon.
Presently performing this dual
role is Judge Darrell F. Brown,
who lives in Margarita and travels
by the Panama Railroad or drives
his own car across the Isthmus to
be ready for court in Balboa at
8:30 on Monday, Tuesday, and
Friday and then returns to Cris-
tobal in time to begin the after-
noon session there at about 1:30
p.m.
He stays in Cristobal all day
Wednesday and in Balboa all day
Thursday as these are trial days.
The workload can vary from as
few as 5 to as many as 25 cases
a day and the afternoon session
has, on occasion, continued as late
as 8 p.m.
Brown pointed out that he is
able to serve efficiently on both
sides of the Isthmus because of
the outstanding work of the clerks
who assume many nonjudicial and
administrative responsibilities in
the absence of the judges. He said
they deserve a great deal of the
credit for making it possible to
prevent backlogs of cases and to
avoid sacrificing any principles of
law and justice which include the
right to be brought to trial with-
out unnecessary delay and the
right to bail after arrest. Brown
further states that coordination and
cooperation by Canal Zone law
enforcement authorities facilitates
the effective implementation of the
split schedules.
The judges have found they can
handle many nonsensitive admin-
istrative matters by telephone and
may use the train to send needed
material back and forth across Ihe
Isthmus.
Brown added that he prefers to
commute by train because the
travel time can be utilized to pre-
pare for cases and accomplish other
paperwork.
Since, in addition to double
work during this period, a judge
is on call 24 hours a day, it is not
considered practical for a person
to handle both jobs for more than
1 month. A judge can handle the
work efficiently for short periods
but when continued longer, it can
become physically and mentally
exhausting.
The implementation of the split
court schedule system has proved
successful over the year and has
resulted in economic savings by
avoiding the necessity for employ-
ment and transportation of a relief
judge, which would be a substan-
tial expense.
Despite the continuous commut-
ing, Brown said that he has never
been confused about which court

his watch made him aware tha
was 1:30 p.m.
Asked if he notices any di:
ences in the courts, he said
while the courts essentially o
ate the same, the main differ
apparent is that in the court

many visitors and spectators w
on the Pacific side, the people

William E. LeBrun, Jr.

Wins NMSC Honor
William E. LeBrun, Jr. a senior
at Balboa High School, has been
named Commended student in the
Merit Program by the National
Merit Scholarship Corp. (NMSC),
according to Principal Clyde A.
Willman.
LeBrun is among the 35,000
Commended students named na-
tionwide on the basis of their high
performance on the 1974 Pre-
liminary Scholastic Aptitude Test-
National Merit Scholarship Qualify-
ing Test (PSAT-NMSQT). Com-
mended students represent less
than 2 percent of those who are
expected to graduate from high
school in 1976. Although Com-
mended students ranked high on
the PSAT-NMSQT, they do not
continue in the Merit Scholarship
competition because their scores
were just below those of the
15,000 semifinalists announced ear-
lier.
Edward C. Smith, president of
NMSC, said "The high standing
of Commended students in the
Merit Program shows their great
promise, and their attainment in
this nationwide competition de-
serves public recognition. Com-
mended students should be en-
couraged to continue their educa-
tion. Both these students and our
Nation will benefit from their fur-
ther educational and personal de-
velopment."

in the event the primary delegate
cannot attend because of shift
assignment or rotation, or if he is
a candidate for the position to be

reblading and balancing, the unit
will be flown back to the Canal
Zone so that No. 4 can be put
back into operation in late Novem-

Power Branch personnel, taking
advantage of this interval, are
busily engaged in an " extensive
overhauling, upgrading and modifi-

and turbine generator. One of the
most unusual facets of the over-

be the cleaning of the boiler with

Accepting Bids

For U.S. Careta
The Excess Disposal Unit of the
Division of Storehouses is accept-
ing bid proposals for the sale of
the Panama Canal launch U.S.
Careta, moored at the Dredging
Division at Gamboa.
The 10-year old Careta is 41
feet 11 inches in length with a
beam of 13 feet 11 inches and a
draft of 4 feet 2 inches.
Powered by two General Motor
256 horsepower diesel engines, the
wooden hulled Careta has a cruis-
ing speed of 8.48 knots and a maxi-
mum speed of 9.95 knots. She has
a cruising range of 780 miles, with
fuel oil capacity of 800 gallons and
fresh water capacity of 400 gal-
lons.
She has a capacity for 14 pas-
sengers with sleeping accommoda-
tions for 6 passengers and 2 crew
members.

additional information or inspec-
tion the launch may contact the
Manager, Excess Disposal Unit,

specialized controls will allow more
efficient operation at a significantly
reduced level of fuel consumption.
Meantime, all-out hydroelectric
generation, full operation of steam
unit No. 3 at Miraflores and vari-
ous combinations of gas turbines
are filling the power gap left by
No. 4. The use of gas turbines is
extremely costly and not even the
full use of the hydroelectric plants
can offset the greater gas turbine
costs.
The No. 3 steam boiler at Mira-
flores, now operating in full sup-
port of the power system, also is
ailing, requiring chemical cleaning
and replacement of some 190
boiler tubes. This work is sched-
uled to take place immediately
after the No. 4 unit is returned to
service.
Should an emergency occur that
necessitates the shutdown of No. 3
while No. 4 is out of service, Canal
Zone residents can expect load
shedding measures to be taken
during peak loads.
Barring unforeseen circumstances,
the power system will be back to
normal, with both No. 4 and No. 3
working at full capacity, by mid-
January 1976.

Laucator LOouncil

Plans have been made by the
Isthmnus of Panama chapter of Phi
Delta Kappa to send a delegate
and an alternate to the coming
biennial council.
Roger Moffitt, a fifth grade teach-
er in Diablo Elementary School,
has been selected as the chapter
delegate, and Dr. Charles L.
Latimer, Deputy Superintendent of
Schools of the Canal Zone, will
attend as an alternate representing
the local field chapter of Phi Delta
Kappa, the international fraternity
of leaders in education, at its 35th
Biennial Council and Second In-
ternational Conference on Educa-
tional Issues at Louisville, Ky., Oc-
tober 16-19. Phi Delta Kappa has
461 chapters in the United States,
Canada, and four other countries,
with a current active membership
of more than 100,000 educators.
For the first time, women will
play an active part in the biennial
council. Phi Delta Kappa changed
its males-only policy in February
1974, and to date has initiated
more than 7,000 women educators.
A council feature will be exam-
ination of three education issues
judged crucial by the Phi Delta
Kappa membership. They involve
control (how much power teacher
organization, administrators, boards
of education, and government
bodies should exercise); secondary
education reform (whether the
schools should develop a variety of
alternative routes to adulthood for
adolescents); and independence
versus social responsibility as goals
of education.
On the business agenda is elec-
tion and installation of interna-
tional officers. Howard M. Soule of
Phoenix, Ariz., will turn over the
top office in Phi Delta Kappa to
president elect Dr. Bill L. Turney,
of Euless, Tex.
Dr. Turney formerly taught on
the faculty of Balboa High School
and as a part-time instructor at
the Canal Zone College. He re-
turned to the Canal Zone in Octo-
ber 1973, to participate in the in-
stallation of the Isthmus of Pan-
ama field chapter.


The Soroptimist Foundations of
the Soroptimist Federation of the
Americas, Inc. have announced
their identifying project, Youth Cit-
izenship Awards for 1976.
Seventeen $1,000 awards, one
to each winner within the 15 re-
gions and two affiliated areas of
the Soroptimist Federation of the
Americas, Inc., will be awarded.
In addition, a $1,500 finalist award
will go to one of the 17 winners
making a total of $2,500 to the
finalist.
Last year more than 2,000 schools
in the federation participated in
the 12th annual Youth Citizenship
Awards Program; and close to 600
clubs submitted entries, including
the clubs in the affiliated area of
Central America.
The program's important contri-
bution toward good citizenship is
recognized by the Freedoms Foun-
dation. For 9 consecutive years it
has been awarded the George
Washington Honor Medal. In the
United States, the National Asso-
ciation of Secondary School Prin-
cipals has placed the program on
its approved list of national con-
tests and activities.
The Soroptimist Youth Citizen-
ship Awards are not scholarships
but are "Awards of Merit." Each

La forma menos costosa para
general corriente el6ctrica es usar
agua del lago para producer ener-
gia hidroeldctrica. Los lagos de
Catin y Madden estan easi llenos
a la fecha y estin siendo aprove-
chados con tal prop6sito.
El segundo sistema mas barato
es el empleo de otra forma de ge-
nerar vapor de agua en turbines.
El m6todo mas costoso es utilizar
generadores a gas en turbines. Bajo


condiciones normales, el funciona-
miento diario del sistema de ge-
neracion de electricidad requerir,
el uso de todos los metodos de ge-
neraci6n, o alguna combinaci6n de
varies, dependiendo de la tempo-
rada y de los niveles del lago.
La situaci6n fuera de lo normal
que actualmente afronta el sistema
.de generaci6n de electricidad del
Canal comenz6 en junior de 1974,
cuando se registry una vibraci6n
normal en la turbina a vapor
N9 4 en Miraflores, mientras se
efectuaban trabajos de rutina. La
turbina fue paralizada inmediata-
mente y abierta para ser sometida
a una inspecei6n. Se estableci6 que
el problema estaba localizado en
dos anillos, o seguros, que mantie-
nen las cuchillas en su lugar en las
turbines. Habian fallado a la velo-
cidad normal de operaci6n de 3,600
revoluciones por minute y las pie-
zas saltaron danando las dos uilti-
mas filas de cuchillas.
Antes de cerrar completamente
la plant hasta que se pudieran ad-
quirir nuevas cuchillas, la Divisi6n
Industrial elimin6 las dos filas de
cuchillas dafiadas y la unidad fue
puesta a funcionar nuevamente a
capacidad limitada, a fin de copar
las necesidades de la temporada
seca.
Posteriormente, en agosto de
este alio, la unidad N9 4 fue para-
lizada y su rotor fue transportado
en un avi6n de carga de la Fuerza
Area de los Estados Unidos al
Centro de Reparaciones en Hous-
ton Texas. Una vez se coloquen y
balanceen las nuevas cuchillas del
rotor, este serA transportado de
vuelta a la Zona del Canal, a fin de
que pueda ser puesto a funcionar
nuevamente a fines de noviembre.
Personal del Ramo de Cenera-
ci6n de Electricidad, con el pro-
p6sito de aprovechar el intervalo,
estin empefiados en una labor ex-
tensiva de reacondicionamiento, re-
paracion y ajuste de la caldera
N9 4 y del generador de turbina.
Uno de los aspects mais raros del
reacondicionamiento y area suple-
mentaria sert la limpieza de la

SPILLWAY DEL CANAL DE PANAMA


Octubre 10, 1975


Comenzo


Revisado


En Panama
Desde el pasado 19 de octubre
se iniciO el period de revisado de
vehiculos en ]a Repuiblica de Pa-
namna. La inspcccion annual se ex-
tenderA hasta el 28 de febrero del
proximo ano.
Segiin informes proporcionados
por el Departamento de Revisado
de la Direcci6n Nacional de Tran-
sito y Transporte Terrestre de Pa-
namla, para cumplir con el requi-
sito del revisado se estA exigiendo
unicamente el ultimo recibo de la
placa y el ccrtificado de inspec-
ci6n de 1975 del vehiculo corres-
pondiente.
La expedici6n de places se ini-
ciart este aio el 19 de diciembre,
en lugar de a principios de afio,
como se ha acostumbrado tradi-
cionalmente. Ello pennitirA un pla-
zo mas razonable para que los in-
teresados puedan retirar las places
de circulaci6n vehicular.
La Tesoreria Municipal de Pa-
nami calcula que este afio distri-
buirA unos 42,300 places particu-
lares; 8,000 comerciales; 400 de
demostraci6n, y 1,800 con el N9
10, correspondiente a ciudadanos
norteamericanos con residencia en
la ciudad de PanamA.
Los requisitos para obtener la
placa son los siguientes:
-Paz y Salvo Municipal.
-Recibo de la placa anterior.
-Comprobante del revisado.
-La lata o placa anterior.
En el caso de empress comer-
ciales, el Municipio de PanamA
esti exigiendo, ademns, el Paz y
Salvo Nacional.
Se ha recomendado a los pro-
pietarios de vehiculos registrados
en el Municipio de Panama que
cumplan con el trAmite de revision
temprano, y eviten las demoras y
aglomeraciones de iltima hora.
Ambos process, de revisado y
expedici6n de places, se estAn lle-
vando a cabo en las instalaciones
del municipio y el trAnsito en

derosos, en condiciones diferentes
y variaciones de la temperature.
Esta es la primera ocasi6n que se
aplica este process de cuidadoso
control en las plants a vapor de
generaci6n de electricidad del
Canal de Panami.
Una vez sean concluidas todas
las reparaciones, la unidad N9 4
funcionarA nuevamente a mAxima
capacidad. La adici6n de contro-
les especializados permitirAn un
funcionamiento mis eficiente a una
rata significativamente mas baja
de consume de combustible.
Mientras que todas las plants
hidroelectricas se hallan fuera de
operaci6n, el funcionamiento de la
unidad a vapor N9 3 en Miraflores
y la combinaci6n de varias plan-
tas de turbines a gas, estAn su-
pliendo la cantidad de energia que
ha dejado de producer la plant
N9 4. El uso de turbines a gas es
extremadamente costoso, y ni amn
el uso a capacidad de las plants
hidroelectricas puede menguar el
alto costo de las plants de tur-
binas a gas.
La caldera de la Planta N9 3 en
Miraflores, que actualmente fun-
ciona supliendo gran parte de la
energia necesaria, necesita la lim-
pieza con agents quimicos y el
reemplazo de unos 190 tubos de la
caldera. Este trabajo deberA reali-
zarse apenas vuelva a ser puesta
en servicio la unidad N� 4.
Una emergencia podria requerir
el cierre de la plant N9 3 mientras
que la N9 4 ailn sigue fuera de
servicio. En tal circunstancia los
residents de la Zona del Canal
deben ajustarse a medidas de aus-
teridad en el consume energ6tico
durante los periods de mayor
consumno.
Una vez se superen las circuns-
tancias previstas, el sistema de goe
neracion de electricidad de la Zona
del Canal, con sus plants N9 3
y N9 4, estart funcionando a ple-
na capacidad a mediados de 1976.
