3 New Lawyers

Join Staff of

General Counsel
Three new attorneys have joined
the General Counsel's staff. Two-
Sherry K. Norman and James E.
Ferrara-are literally "new" at-
torneys entering the legal pro-
fession after graduating from law
school a few months ago.
The third is James R. Dunworth,
whose interest in maritime law
and background as a naval officer
bring him naturally to the Canal
Ms. Norman, who was born in
Dover, N.J., holds a bachelor of
arts degree from the University of
Wisconsin and a doctor of laws
degree from Rutgers Law School.
She lives in Gamboa with her
5-year-old son, Francisco.
Although his parents are U.S.
citizens, James E. Ferrara was 16
years old before he lived in the
United States.
He and his two sisters were born
in Medellin, Colombia, where his
father was employed as a ceramic
engineer. When he was 8, the
family moved to Puerto Rico. They
lived there for 9 years before
returning home to Vineland, N.J.
Ferrara received a bachelor of
arts degree from Trinity College,
Hartford, Conn., in 1964 and a
doctor of laws degree from Tulane
University Law School, New
Orleans, in 1975.
Before and after 4 years of serv-
ice in the U.S. Army which in-
cluded a 20-month tour in Viet-
nam, Ferrara worked as an in-
terpreter under contract with the
State Department traveling out of
Washington, D.C. He traveled to
Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico and to
many of the United States-to
wherever the State Department
needed a Spanish translator in a
While at Tulane he met Olga
Elena Chanis of Panama City, who
was majoring in music history at
Tulane's Newcomb College. They
came to Panama to be married
during summer vacation between
their junior and senior years at
Ferrara and his wife live in Pan-
ama City. Mrs. Ferrara's sister,
Sandra, a professor of art at the
University of Panama, is married
to Dr. Paul Bonds of Gorgas
Ferrara's interests range from
outdoor sports, such as fishing and
tennis, to indoor hobbies like music
and stamp collecting.

Examining Office. After completing
a short application form, applicants
will be scheduled by the Central
Examining Office to take a pre-
liminary screening examination in
the near future. Those who pass
this screening examination will
then be scheduled for the final
When the apprentice vacancies
are advertised in the SPILLWAY
early next year, only those em-
ployees who took and passed the
examinations given by the Central
Examining Office will be eligible
for consideration. No special or
non-competitive tests will be sched-
uled this year, so interested em-
ployees are urged to apply now
for the examinations given by the
Central Examining Office.
Employees selected for ap-
prenticeships will enter 1 of more
than 34 different crafts taught at
the Industrial Training Staff's Ap-
prentice School. The school offers
programs of instruction which are
on a level with those offered by
top educational institutions in re-
lated areas. Shop and laboratory
facilities are excellent. In addi-
tion, a coordinated program be-
tween the Industrial Training Staff
and the Canal Zone College will
provide apprentices the opportunity
to obtain a 2-year associate college
degree in technology.

Ship Transits,

Tolls Are Down

From Last Year
The number of oceangoing
vessels transiting the Panama Canal
decreased again last month.
The daily average transit figures
for oceangoing commercial vessels
for the 5-month period ending No-
vember 30, 1975, are 33.7, down
from 37.3 for the same period of
the prior year. In terms of num-
ber of transits, this decrease reflects
the loss of 517 transits. Toll reve-
nues are down approximately
$3,500,000 for this period.
The loss of 517 transits is com-
posed of a decrease of 568 vessels
of under 80' beam, an increase of
54 vessels from 80' to 100' beam
and a decrease of 3 vessels in the
over 100' beam class. This loss in
mix of vessels would indicate that
the opening of the Suez Canal has
had to date minimum impact on
the Panama Canal. The decline in
transits at this time is principally
attributed to the world economic
These statistics and the de-
clining tolls that result indicate
that the present austerity measures
will continue for the foreseeable

PCC, IRHE Sign New

Mutual Benefit Contract

The Canal organization and Pan-
ama's National Institute of Hy-
draulic Resources and Electrifica-
tion (IRHE) have signed another
in a series of agreements of mutual
benefit in meeting their changing
requirements for electrical power.
This agreement extends through
1976 the suspension of a 25-year
contract under which the Canal
purchases 30 megawatts of elec-
tricity from IRHE. Signed in May
1969, the contract was suspended
in 1972 for a period of 3 years at
the request of IRHE. It was sched-
uled to be resumed in September
of 1975 with the anticipated open-
ing of the new 150-megawatt
Bayano generating station. Be-
cause of construction delays, the
Bayano plant will not be operating
as scheduled.
The extended moratorium of the

David A. Hope

David A. Hope

Named Atlantic

Personnel Chief
David A. Hope has been named
Chief of the Cristobal Personnel
Office and will head up Personnel
Bureau activities relating to Canal
employees serving on the Atlantic
side of the Isthmus.
Hope has been with the Per-
sonnel Bureau for 9 years, 8 of
which have been in the Cristobal
Office. Prior to being promoted
to his present position, supervisory
personnel management specialist
(Chief of the Cristobal Personnel
Office), he was a position classifica-
tion specialist.
A native of Birmingham, Ala.,
he came to the Canal Zone as a
child and attended local schools,
including Balboa High School, from
which he was graduated. Hope
holds a bachelor of science degree
in business administration from
New Mexico State University.
Before attending New Mexico
State, Hope served 3 years in the
U.S. Army and was employed for
2 years as a Canal Zone Police
He and his wife, Marjorie, have
two boys, Edward, 15, and Daniel,
13. After hours, Hope enjoys hunt-
ing and fishing plus outside ac-
tivities his sons participate in, such
as motorcycling, Little League
football and baseball and trap and
skeet shooting.

agreement will allow IRHE to use
its electrical power generating cap-
ability to meet the increasing
power requirements of its growing
population. The Canal Zone, which
has been consuming less and less
power since fiscal year 1973,
through energy conservation meas-
ures, can meet its current elec-
trical power needs without pur-
chasing this power from Panama.
Other factors considered in ex-
tending the moratorium of the
agreement are the increased avail-
ability of water for cheap hydro-
electrical power generation be-
cause of fewer ships transiting the
Canal and the present channel
deepening project.
This extension of the suspension
of the contract will also reduce
dollars spent by the Canal orga-
nization on electrical power at a
time when current economics de-
mand cutbacks in spending. This
will help to offset, in part, the in-
creased electrical generation costs
experienced in recent years due to
soaring fuel prices. Approximately
two-thirds of all Panama Canal
electrical generation is through
thermal power that requires fuel.
Despite the suspension of the
25-year contract, however, the
Panama Canal Company and IRHE
continue to provide mutual assist-
ance through an Interconnection
Agreement dating back to March
1964. At that time, the Canal or-
ganization built a transmission line
from Miraflores generating station
to the Caceres substation in Pan-
ama to join the two systems. Since
then, there have been other elec-
trical power lines interconnecting
the IRHE system with the Panama
Canal system. Through the Inter-
connection Agreement, the Canal
and IRHE sell each other surplus
energy and lend each other
assistance in times of emergency.

People in the News

One of the most valuable em-
ployees of the Balboa Housewares
Store is Lloyd George Gallimore,
Jr., head of the stereo equipment
sales section. Although he has
worked for Panama Canal and the
Supply Division only since Jan-
uary 1974, in that short time he
has become known as an expert
on electronic equipment to whom
customers go for advice.
Gallimore was born and at-
tended elementary school in Al-
mirante, Bocas del Toro Province.
After 3 years at Colegio Felix Oli-
vares C. in David, Chiriqui Prov-
ince, he went on to Colegio Jos6
Guardia Vega in Colon. During
his 3 years there, he followed a
commercial curriculum, graduating
with honors in bookkeeping, office
practice and mathematics.
Before coming to work for the
Canal, Gallimore worked 7 years
in accounting and public relations
with the Chiriqui Land Co. and
1 year with Corrugados de Pa-
From childhood, Gallimore has
had a liking for music. He studied
piano at the Conservatorio Nacio-
nal de PanamA for 2 years. During
his years at Colegio F6lix Oliva-
res, he played the clarinet in the
school band, and while a student
at Colegio Jos6 Guardia Vega he
played the accordion in a "con-
junto tipico."
One of his fondest memories
concerns the time when, recently
graduated from high school, he
returned to Bocas del Toro and,
with some friends, formed a mu-
sical group that practiced at Ist-
mito beach. When the orchestra
hired for a party given by the
Anglican Church of Almirante
failed to show up, Gallimore and
his friends were given the chance
to play. They were a hit-and the
now internationally famous mu-
sical group Los Beachers was born.
Gallimore says Bobby Walker,
manager of the Bocas Division of
the Chiriqui Land Co., gave them
$1,700 toward the purchase of
new instruments to help them on
their way.
Since then, Gallimore has de-
veloped many interests, but first
among them are music and work-
ing with electronic sound equip-
ment-on the job and off.


The October 17 issue of the
SPILLWAY carried a photo caption
concerning Capt. Relleke V. Mans
which contained incorrect infor-
mation. The caption should have
stated: Capt. Relleke V. Mans, who
recently completed the required
19-month pilot-in-training program,
displays the Unlimited Panama
Canal Pilots License presented to
him at a ceremony held at the
Cristobal Port Captain's office. Be-
fore coming to the Canal, Captain
Mans, his wife, Bonnie, and their
two children made their home in
Bremerton, Wash. Captain Mans
began his maritime career in 1950
as an ordinary seaman and worked
his way through the ranks, obtain-
ing his Master's license. Before
coming to the Canal Zone, Cap-
tain Mans sailed with SeaLand as
chief mate.

The 1976 safety inspections of
privately owned motor vehicles li-
censed in the Canal Zone will start
January 5 in the Panama Canal
Company's Motor Transportation
Division garages at Ancon and
Initially, the inspections will be
performed during the period 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m., Monday through Fri-
day. The inspection hours are es-
tablished to enable owners who
work regular office hours and
others who work on a shift basis
to have their cars inspected out-
side of the normal work period.
To pass inspection the vehicle
must be in such safe operating con-
dition as not to endanger the driver
or other occupant or any person
upon the highway. The inspection
covers brakes, lighting system,
windows, windshields and wind-
shield wipers, turn indicators,
horns, wheel alinement, steering
gear, exhaust system, tires, and
other parts of the car which affect
safety. When the vehicle passes
inspection, an inspection sticker
will be placed on the windshield
and an inspection certificate will
be issued. The latter must be
carried in the vehicle at all times.
Cost for the inspection, includ-
ing sticker and certificate, is $1.
Vehicle registration must be pre-
sented at time of inspection. Canal
Zone Vehicle Regulations require
that all privately owned motor ve-
hicles, including motorcycles, trail-
ers and semitrailers (including boat
trailers) registered in the Canal
Zone be inspected each year dur-
ing the months of January and
Owners are urged strongly to
have their vehicles inspected early
to avoid a last-minute rush.

Chief, Division of Public Health. The exhibit of arts
and crafts was an added attraction of a program
planned to demonstrate how many nutritious, tasty
dishes can result when a few basic foods are com-
bined with an abundance of ingenuity and know-how.
Using recipes created by the center's cooking in-
structor, Mrs. Carmen Franklin, with the cooperation
of program director Sylvia Patterson, students and
parents prepared main dishes, muffins, deserts and

even a refreshing drink-all from oats and cornmeal.
The Pedro Miguel Nursery donated a portion of the
food it had received from CARITAS (Catholic Char-
ities of Panama) and, in return, was given the recipes
so it can make better use of future CARITAS con-
tributions. From left are Mrs. Franklin, Dr. Kredel,

Nurse, Mrs. Marcia Garcia, a social worker, and

John, Maggie Janssen Plan Long

Post-Retirement Junket in States

When the Cristobal heads out to
sea on December 18, it will carry
John and Maggie Janssen on the
first leg of a post-retirement junket
that will take them to visit family,
friends and possible retirement
sites before they finally decide to
settle down again.
They have in mind the kind of
footloose adventure that many em-
ployees dream of but few embark
on. Those who know them will say
that in their many years of asso-
ciation with the Panama Canal
they have earned it.
Arwin John Janssen, as he is
formally known, has been the
Manpower Officer in the Financial
Planning Division of the Office of
the Financial Vice President since
1963. He is retiring this month
with 34 years of Government
A native of Benson, Ill., John
received a bachelor of science de-
gree from Bradley University,
Peoria, I11., in 1938 and a master
of science degree in industrial
education from the same institution
in 1951.
He taught high school industrial
arts in Missouri until 1941, when
ie enlisted in the Naval Reserve.
In 1942 he was commissioned an
ensign E-V(C) and reported for
duty with the 15th Naval District
in the Canal Zone, where he
served in the Inshore Patrol Pacific
Section Base until 1944.
When he was reassigned to Mare
Island, Calif., he was accom-
panied by his wife, the former
Margaret Whelan. During their
2 years in San Francisco their
children Arwin John, Jr., and
Patricia were born.
John was separated from active
duty in 1946 with the rank of
lieutenant, and soon afterwards
was back on the Isthmus as super-
visory teacher of industrial arts in
Canal Zone schools, a position he
held until 1951.
After 4 years as a training officer
for the U.S. Naval Supply Facility
at Rodman and 7 years as a man-

agement analyst with the U.S.
Army at Fort Amador, John
assumed his present position with
Panama Canal.
Margaret M. Janssen's associa-
tion with Panama Canal has even
deeper roots. Her father, Fenton
Whelan, arrived on the Isthmus in
1909 to help build the Canal and
stayed to help keep it running.
But among Maggie's treasures are
his Roosevelt Medal and memen-
tos of his service as a volunteer
Born at Gorgas Hospital, Maggie
attended Canal Zone schools,
graduating from Balboa High
School and entering Canal Zone
College in 1941 as a member of
the second class to graduate from
the fledgling institution.
She went to work in 1943 with

the Supply and Community Serv-
ices Division. Since 1948, she has
been with the Office of the Finan-
cial Vice President, where she is
a clerk-stenographer in the Budget
Throughout their years here, the
Janssens have taken an active
role in community organizations.
Maggie is a member of the Cath-
olic Daughters of America, the
Isthmian College Club, and the
Altar Rosary Society of Sacred
Heart Chapel, Ancon, of which
she is a past president.
As an officer in the Naval Re-
serve, John was promoted to lieu-
tenant commander in 1946 and to
commander in 1955. He par-
ticipated in training units until his
retirement in 1968, serving for 2

Composite Company 15-2.
A charter member in the re-
organization of the Reserve Officers
Association in the Canal Zone after
World War II, John served as De-
partment President in 1953-54 and
in March of this year received its
"Man of the Year" award in recog-
nition of his significant contribu-
tions to the objectives of the asso-
ciation and his leadership in com-
munity activities, particularly those
dealing with youth.
During his association with the
Canal Zone school system, John's
knowledge of the sea led him to
become involved with the Sea Ex-
plorers. For years he was assistant
chairman and more recently be-
came chairman of the adult com-
mittee for Sea Explorer Ship No. 8.
In this role, he received the Pres-
ident's Award for an Honor Unit
from the Boy Scouts of America.
In addition to keeping a 40-foot
motorboat and a 30-foot ketch in
operating condition, Ship No. 8
also had the concrete-hulled two-
masted sailing ship Chief Aptakisic,
which it turned over to Canal
Zone Project Windjammer '76. The
ship is currently being readied to
participate in Bicentennial events
in the United States. John is a
member of the board of directors
of Project Windjammer '76.
John is a long-time member of
the American Legion and of Lodge

James R. Dunworth was born in
East St. Louis, Ill., where he at-
tended St. Patrick's Elementary

School before entering the U.S.
Merchant Marine Academy, Kings
Point, N.Y., in 1954.
From 1958 to 1963, he served
in the U.S. Navy. He was sta-
tioned in Japan when he married
his wife, Yaeko.
After separation from the Navy,
he was employed by several steam-
ship companies on the West Coast
before entering Hastings College
of Law, San Francisco. He re-
ceived his degree in 1973 and was
in private practice in San Fran-
cisco for a year.

member and past chairman of the
board of trustees of Redeemer
Lutheran Church, Balboa.
Even a brief resume of John
and Maggie's contributions to the
Isthmian community makes it ap-
parent that they will be sorely
missed when they embark on their
open-ended retirement trip.
Steadfastly refusing to let them-
selves be pinned down as to where
they will eventually settle, they
say they will spend Christmas with
Maggie's sister and brother-in-law
Catherine and Ed Filo in Dothan,
Ala., where there is a sizable com-
munity of Panama Canal retirees,
and then go on to look things over
in Florida.
For late January and early Feb-
ruary they have a definite engage-
ment at Langley AFB, Va.-with
the stork. Daughter Patricia, wife
of Air Force Capt. Gene Beck, is
expecting an addition to her fam-
ily of two children, Sean and Lara.
Plans also call for a visit to John's
family in Illinois and a possible
trip to San Francisco to see their
son, Army Capt. Arwin J. Jan-
ssen, Jr., wife Joanne and grand-
children Carrie and John Robert.
And July 4 will be a day for
memories. The Janssens plan to be
on hand in New York, where John
received his commission during
World War II, to see the Chief
Aptakisic and other vessels in

Camaras Salvavidas
Estan Disponibles
Se recuerda a los buzos que de-
ben averiguar la localizaci6n de
las CAmaras de Descompresi6n de
la Zona del Canal para futuras
operaciones de emergencia.
La cAmara del sector AtlAntico
esta situada en la Barcaza de Sal-
vamento U.S. 208, estacionada en
el Dep6sito de Salvamento y Es-
cuela de Buceria, contigua al Club
de Yates de Gatin. La camara del
sector Pacifico estA situada en el
Complejo de la Divisi6n Industrial
al lado del Dique Seco N� 1.
Para activar las cAmaras se debe
notificar a la Policia de Balboa o
de Crist6bal inmediatamente y
transportar al paciente a la cAmara
mAs cercana. Se pueden conseguir
cartelones en los que se indica la
localizaci6n e instrucciones para
el uso de las cAmaras con s61o

Bajan Transitos

Y Peajes en

Cinco Meses
El n6mero de naves de alto
bordo que transitan por el Canal
de PanamA disminuy6 nuevamente
el mes pasado.
Las cifras de trAnsitos promedio
de buques comerciales de gran ca-
lado para el period de 5 meses
que termin6 el 30 de noviembre
de 1975 son de 33.7, cantidad in-
ferior a la de 37.3 que se tuvo en
el mismo period del afio anterior.
Si lo ponemos en nimero de trAn-
sitos, esta disminuci6n refleja la
p6rdida de 517 trAnsitos. Durante
este period, las entradas por pea-
jes disminuyeron aproximadamente
en $3,500,000.
La p6rdida de 517 trAnsitos, se
descompone asi: una disminuci6n
de 568 barcos de un ancho de
menos de 80 pies, un aumento de
54 barcos de un ancho entire 80 y
100 pies y una disminuci6n de
3 naves de la clase de mis de 100
pies de manga. Esta perdida en
toda clase de barcos indicaria que
la apertura del Canal de Suez,
hasta la fecha, ha tenido un im-
pacto minimo en el Canal de
Panama. La declinaci6n en los
trAnsitos que tiene lugar se atri-
buye principalmente a la situaci6n
econ6mica mundial.
Estas estadisticas y la disminu-
ci6n en los peajes que resultan de
ellas indican que las actuales me-
didas de austeridad continuarin
durante el future previsible.

Titeres de Paris

Se Presentaran

En Balboa Hoy
Si usted deja la rutina diaria y
se olvida de las complicaciones de
la vida, podra entrar en un mundo
de milagros, de magia y de leyen-
das esta noche a las 7 en el Teatro

Los Titeres y Juegos de Som-
bras Anthanor, de Paris, Francia,

Nuevo Contrato Firman

IRHE y el Canal

La empresa del Canal y el
Institute de Recursos Hidraulicos y
Electrificaci6n de Panama (IRHE)
han firmado otro acuerdo de mu-
tuo beneficio para satisfacer sus
necesidades de energia electrica.
Este acuerdo extiende hasta fi-
nes de 1976 la suspension de un
contrato de 25 afios bajo el cual
la Compafiia del Canal compra al
IRHE 30 megavatios de electrici-
dad. Firmado en mayo de 1969,
el contrato fue suspendido en 1972
por un period de 3 arios a peti-
ci6n del IRHE. Se esperaba su
reanudaci6n en septiembre de
1975, anticipando la inauguraci6n
de la nueva estaci6n generadora de
150 megavatios del Bayano. De-
bido a demoras en la construc-
ci6n, la plant del Bayano no
operara seg6n lo programado.
La extension de la moratoria del
acuerdo le permitiri al IRHE el
uso de su capacidad generadora

David A. Hope

para enfrentar la creciente deman-
da de energia en la ciudad. La
Zona del Canal, que ha reducido
el consume de energia desde el
ano fiscal 1973 debido a medidas
de conservaci6n, puede hacerle
frente a sus necesidades actuales
sin comprarle energia a Panama.
Otros factors tomados en cuenta
en la extension de la moratoria
del acuerdo son la cantidad de
agua disponible para la genera-
ci6n a bajo cost de energia hi-
droelectrica, debido al reducido
n6mero de barcos que actualmente
transitan el Canal, y el proyecto
de profundizar la via.
La extension de la suspension
del contrato tambi6n reducirA los
gastos de la compaiiia en energia
electrica durante este tiempo cuan-
do la economic exige ahorro. Esto
aliviarA, en parte, el creciefite cost
por la generaci6n de electricdiad
que se ha visto en los ultimos
afios como resultado del alto cost
del combustible. Aproximadamen-
te dos tercios de la electricidad
generada por la compafiia del
Canal es por fuerza t6rmica, la
cual require combustible.
A pesar de la suspension del con-
trato de 25 aiios, la compafia del
Canal y el IRHE continfian su pro-
grama de asistencia mutual, basada
en el Acuerdo de Interconecci6n de
marzo de 1964. En esta fecha, la
organizaci6n construy6 una linea
de transmisi6n desde la estaci6n
generadora de Miraflores a la sub-
estaci6n de CAceres en Panama
para unir los dos sistemas. Desde
entonces, se ban instalado otras
lines de interconecci6n de ambos
sistemas. Mediante este Acuerdo
de Interconecci6n, ambas institu-
ciones tambien se venden energia
producida en exceso a sus deman-
das y se prestan asistencia en
tiempos de emergencia.

Gente en la Noticia

Uno de los empleados mis apre-
ciados del Almacen de Articulos
para el Hogar de Balboa es Lloyd
George Gallimore, Jr., encargado
del Departamento de Ventas de
Equipo Estereof6nico. Trabaja con
el Canal de Panama y con la Di-
visi6n de Abastos desde el 29 de
enero de 1974.
A pesar del poco tiempo de ser-
vicio con que cuenta, ya se ha
convertido en una de las unida-
des miis valiosas de su departa-
mento, pues es un expert en apa-
ratos electr6nicos, al extrerno de
que los clients Ilegan a solicitar
sus consejos. Gallimore naci6 en
Almirante, Provincia de Bocas del
Toro, donde hizo sus studios pri-
marios. Los 3 primeros afios de
secundaria los curs6 en el Colegio
F6lix Olivares C. de David y los
3 iltimos en el Colegio Jose Guar-
dia Vega, de la ciudad de Col6n,
donde obtuvo el titulo de bachi-
Iler en comercio.
Desde nifio tuvo gran afici6n por
la musica, por lo que curs6 2 afios

que la Iglesia Anglicana de Almi-
rante, habia programado una fies-
ta y la orquesta que habian con-
tratado no se present, por lo que
les dieron la oportunidad de tocar.
Su presentaci6n fue un 6xito ro-
tundo y ese dia naci6 una agru-

cionalmente famosa: "Los Beach-
