Unusual Research Ships

To Transit Waterway

Two unusual research ships will
transit the Canal this month and
next en route to a site near the
Galapagos Islands, to participate in
an ocean floor research project with
Oregon State University.
Operated by the Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution of Woods
Hole, Mass., the vessels are the
245-foot research ship Knorr and
the 105-foot Lulu, which serves as
mother ship to the deep diving re-
search vehicle Alvin.
The Knorr has a complement of
9 officers, 16 crewmembers and
24 scientists. The Lulu, a catamaran
tender for the Alvin, carries a crew
of 11 and a 15-member scientific
team. Both vessels were built by
the U.S. Navy.
In 1974, the Knorr participated
in the French-American Mid-Ocean
Undersea Study in the Mid-Atlantic
Ridge south of the Azores. In 1973,
the vessel was on a 9-month voyage
from the Arctic Circle to the fringes
of Antarctica in the Geo-Chemical
Ocean Section Study, which sought
information on how the ocean mixes
over long periods of time. Last year
the Knorr served as a floating lab-
oratory and conducted surveys of
the Cayman Trough, an ocean
trench four times deeper than the
Grand Canyon, preceding a num-
Ler of dives by Alvin, which gave
science the first documented series

Income Tax Assistor

To Visit C.Z. in Feb.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Serv-
ice will provide special assistance
again this year to taxpayers living
in the Canal Zone and Panama.
Edmund Kulsick, a tax assistor,
will come to the Isthmus to meet
with U.S. citizens who need help
with their tax returns.
He will meet with Atlantic side
residents from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
February 11, in Room 108, Admin-
istration Building, Cristobal.
On the Pacific side, he will be
available for consultations from
7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., February 17,
and from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, Feb-
ruary 18, in Room 15-A, Adminis-
tration Building, Balboa Heights.
A tax assistor will return to the
Isthmus on April 12 and 13 for
further consultations. The time and
location will be announced later.

Community Property

Tax Law Is Changed
Beginning in tax year 1977,
U.S.-citizen Government employees
living and employed in the Canal
Zone may no longer attribute one
half of their salary to a nonresident
alien spouse thereby paying U.S.
income tax on only one-half of
their income.
This change is written into the
1976 Tax Reform Act which further
says that only income derived from
joint property may be treated as
community income allowing an
even (50/50) split between husband
and wife.
Employees whose withholding tax
will now be insufficient to cover
their 1977 tax should discuss with
their payroll clerk the advisability
of increasing the amount of their
deduction by completing a new

cf rock specimens from the deep
layer of the ocean crust. The sci-
entists also recorded the after shocks
just after the first and largest earth-
quake in Guatemala.
About 15 dives will be made by
the Alvin between February 8 and
March 25 on the Galapagos Rift,
an ocean crust spreading about 200
miles northeast of the Galapagos
Islands, in an area where the ocean
is ahnost 2 miles deep.
Scientists will explore for the first
time hot springs at the bottom of
the Pacific to learn how metal-rich
sediments are formed. The findings
also are expected to help scientists
understand the history of seawater
and the transfer of heat from the
earth's interior into the oceans.
A pilot and two scientists will be
housed in a 6-foot pressure sphere
at the front of the Alvin during the
dives, which may last as long as
8 hours. The scientists will be able
to photograph what they see and
an outside claw can be used to
gather rock and sediment samples.
They also will be able to measure
the temperatures and chemical
properties of the hot waters and
collect water samples.
The Alvin participated in one
unique salvage operation and was
itself the object of another. In 1966,
when the United States H-bomb
was lost off Palomares, Spain, the
Alvin was pressed into service and
manned by the Woods Hole team,
found the weapon not once but
twice as the bomb was lost during
the first recovery operations and
the Alvin found it again.
In 1968, the Alvin was lost dur-
ing an operation from the Lulu, off
Cape Cod. Later found and rebuilt,
the research vessel has participated
in a number of dives in various
scientific projects.

Enrique Marquez Named Chief

Atlantic Maintenance Branch

Enrique Marquez, Chief, Plan-
ning, Budget and Engineering Sec-
tion, Maintenance Division, has
been promoted to Chief, Atlantic
Maintenance Branch.
Born in Panama City, he re-
ceived his primary and secondary
education at La Salle College in
Panama. In 1966, he was graduated
from Catholic University, Wash-
ington, D.C., with a bachelor's
degree in mechanical engineering
and the following year earned a
master's degree in mechanical engi-
neering from the same university.
Mairquez also holds a master's de-
gree in business administration
which he earned in 1974 through
the Oklahoma University graduate
school program at Fort Clayton.
Mirquez joined the Canal orga-
nization in August 1967, when he
was employed as a mechanical en-
gineer in the office of the Chief,
Maintenance Division. He was pro-
moted in 1974 to the position he
held prior to his recent appoint-
He is a member and the current
secretary-treasurer of the Canal
Zone Society of Professional Engi-
neers and a member of the Panama
Society of Engineers and Archi-
tects. Following in the footsteps of
his father, well-known businessman
Clarence Marquez, who for many
years has been one of the most
active members and directors of the
Panama Lions Club, he too is a di-

rector of the Panama Lions and
takes pride in his participation in
the organization's many activities.
His mother, the former Maria
(Nena) Pascual, in the past has been
active in a number of welfare orga-
nizations in Panama and is now
dedicated to Panama Garden Club
Mirquez is married to the former
Millie Dominguez of Panama, a
passenger rate assistant in the Pan-
ama Canal Transportation Branch.
Mr. and Mrs. Mairquez and their
three children, Eileen, 6; Enri-
que, Jr., 5; and Gustavo Adolfo, 1;

handled at the Terminal buildings
in Balboa and Cristobal.
The move by approximately 75
persons included those working di-
rectly in the Marine Traffic Control
operation, the office of the Chief,
Transit Operations Division and his
immediate staff, the Pilot Rotation
and Timekeeping Unit and em-
ployees involved in related work.
Considerable planning went into
the move to insure a smooth tran-
sition. The necessary telephone
switchovers were made in advance
and radio communication systems
had been installed and checked out
prior to the move.
The actual transfer was made
between midnight and 8 a.m., Jan-
uary 10, a period of relatively light
ship traffic.
As had been previously sched-
uled, the Marine Traffic Control
operations will remain in the
manual mode for the present with
a gradual transition to the new
computer assisted mode.
The new center is located on a
hill overlooking the Canal, the
Thatcher Ferry Bridge and the
approach to the Balboa pier area.
It is fully air-conditioned and has
an independent power supply using
batteries and diesel engines en- continued operation during
any electrical failure.
Local representatives of shipping
companies toured the new center
in November and December and
were given a preview of future
plans. Canal officials who briefed
them included Gerard J. Welch,
contracting officer's representative;
Capt. A. L. Gallin, then Deputy
Marine Director; and James C.
Foster, project engineer for the new

y were transferred to the new center
iptain's Building in Balboa.

Now Is Best Time

For Car Inspection
The best time to have your car
inspected is right now. The early
birds who rushed over as soon as
inspections began are taken care of
and the wait-until-the-last-minute
crowd is just getting around to
thinking about the deadline date.
So the line during this mid-way
period is not only short but often
there is no line at all.
Privately-owned motor vehicles
licensed in the Canal Zone can be
inspected Mondays through Fridays
from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Feb-
ruary 28 at the Motor Transporta-
tion Division garages in Ancon and
Cost for the inspection, includ-
ing windshield sticker and a certifi-
cate, is $1. A vehicle registration
must be presented at the time of
Privately-owned motor vehicles
include motorcycles, trailers, semi-
trailers and boat trailers.

Liberal Leave Policy

In Effect for Carnival
Gov. H. R. Parfitt has announced
that liberal leave will be granted
during the Panama Carnival to
allow employees of the Canal orga-
nization to take part in the fes-
This is a continuation of the
Governor's policy, announced last
year, to recognize Panamanian cul-
ture and the contribution of Pan-
ama and Panamanian employees of
the Canal organization by permit-
ting as many employees as possible
to stay away from work so they may
celebrate their national holidays.
Employees whose services can be
spared during the Carnival period
may be excused from their regular
work activities with the usual charge
to leave.

N.Y., and lived there until he was
5 when his father, also a photog-
rapher, moved the family to Cal-

which he still runs, while also ac-
tuating as a special effects con-
sultant on major motion pictures.

Exams Scheduled

For Engineers

The Canal Zone Board of Regis-
tration for Architects and Profes-
sional Engineers has announced
that the dates of the next Fun-
damentals of Engineering (FE) and
Principles and Practice of Engi-
neering (PE) examinations have
been set for Thursday, April 14,
and Friday, April 15.
The examinations are given in
1iEglish only.
Applicants who have been no-
tified that they are eligible for ad-
mission to these examinations
should write the Secretary of the
Board, Box 223, Balboa Heights,
C.Z., not later than February 22,
stating it is their intention to take
the examination.
Normal processing of new appli-
cations takes several weeks. There-
fore, those persons interested in
taking the examinations should
submit their application, which can
be obtained from the Secretary of
the Board at the above address or
by telephoning 52-7927, not later
than February 7, so that process-
ing of the application may be com-
pleted prior to the date of the

Kevin Jenkins

"Blue Grass Special" about a girl
Photography wasn't Kevin's first
love. He really wanted to be a
pilot and worked hard at it from
the time he was 15 trading an hour
of waxing, polishing and fueling
planes for an hour of ground school
and pilot training. He was only
17 when he passed the FAA private
pilot exam.
Just out of high school, Kevin
had word that he was to be drafted
so he enlisted for Army Photogra-
phy School. After 6 months of
training at Fort Monmouth, N.J.,
he was assigned to the 534th Mil-
itary Police Company, Fort Clayton.
His assignments included such
stomach-turning jobs as photograph-
ing the results of traffic accidents,
homicides and investigative work.
A little of that and there's a big
need to get away from it all which
is what Kevin was doing one week-
end at Santa Clara beach when he
met Olga Fernandez who had come
down from Chicago to visit her
Not too much later, Olga and

Red Barn Activities
The Red Barn in Margarita is
open from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. and
from 7 to 10 p.m., Monday through
Thursday, and from 2 to 5:30 p.m.
and 7 to 10:30 p.m., Friday and
Activities include needlepoint
classes offered at 7 p.m., Tuesdays
and macrame classes at 4 p.m.
Monday. A disco dance is planned
for February 18 from 8 p.m. to

Kevin had set a wedding date. Un-
fortunately, it turned out to be the
same week that he was discharged
from the Army and went to work
for the Canal organization. It was
a week to remember ending with
jitters that almost spelled disaster
when first Kevin returned from
photographing the governor to find
his flash was dead and later took
another picture without taking the
lens cover off. But nervous bride-
grooms are forgiven much and it
was just a few years later that Kevin
received an Outstanding Perform-
ance Award for the quality of his
work and a Special Achievement
Award for photographing a major
ship accident.
Olga, who until last year was
office manager at Florida State Uni-
versity, encouraged Kevin to re-
turn to school. He has received an
Associate in Arts Degree from FSU
and is now taking classes at Canal
Zone College for the credits he
needs to return to FSU for a Bach-
elor of Arts degree in business.
Because he works all day, goes to
college four evenings a week and
spends the hours in between with
Kenneth, 6, and Aileen, 2, Kevin
does his studying in the peace and
quiet of the hours from 3:45 to
6:30 a.m. each day.
Ranking right after his work and
education in importance is their
love of traveling and Kevin and
Olga have literally hundreds of pic-
tures of their visits to the western
states in the United States, most
countries of Europe, all of the
countries of Central America and
a small but soon-to-grow number
of countries of South America.

ama to build a canal and had the
courage to stay.
One of those oldtimers was
Walter L. Hersh, 93, who was in-
terviewed for a feature article that
appeared in the St. Petersburg
Hersh, who retired from the
Canal organization in 1945 and now
lives in St. Petersburg, told the
Times reporter about the days when,
fresh out of what was then Penn-
sylvania State College, he booked
passage on a steamer and arrived
on the Isthmus at the age of 26.
He was an electrical engineer but
went to work as a wireman for 65
cents an hour. Within 2 years, he
was earning $400 a month super-
vising the construction of a 44,000
volt transmission line along the
Panama Railroad.
That was when Hersh made out

Una vez mis ha quedado demostrado que las sugerencias no tienen que
ser ni de gran magnitude ni dramiticas para mejorar las condiciones de
trabajo de los empleados del Canal. Ello se hace evidence al haberse
adoptado la sugerencia de Joe J. Duda de reemplazar dos tornillos de
cabeza hueca en una pieza de equipo y la de Donald R. Chaney que
recomend6 la instalaci6n de una luz de seguridad en las escaleras que
conducen al area de operaciones de la caseta de control. La sugerencia
de Duda fue adoptada y la de Chancy dio lugar a que se reactivara una
luz que ya existia para ayudar a identificar a las personas que entran
en la caseta de control. Duda y Chaney, empleados de la Divisi6n de
Esclusas, recibieron Certificados de Premio por Incentivo y cheques por
$50 y $25, respectivamente. En el acto de entrega aparecen de izquierda
