T he Panama Canal S pill way
Vol. XVI, No. 50 Friday, August 4, 1978

The honored guest last month at the Balboa High School reunion of
classes 1950-55 held on the Isthmus was Harold "Zip" Zierten, left, who
met Gov. H. R. Parfitt during his stay. Zierten, now retired and living
in Florida, was at one time a teacher, boy's guidance counselor, and
assistant principal of BHS during the years 1929 to 1959. He was
accompanied to the well-attended reunion by his wife Emma.

- New Vehicle and Boat Display Area

A new site in the Balboa In-
dustrial Area replaces Morgan's
Gardens as the Canal.Zone Ve-
hicle and Boat Display Area. The
site is located just off Pier Street
across from Building 78 (Compa-
gia Petrolera Chevron and the Pan-
ama Canal Furniture Pool), in the
old "Pub" area.
Beginning tomorrow, vehicles or
boats may no longer be displayed
at Morgan's Gardens. Regulations
governing use of the area will be
posted as follows:
Use of this area is restricted to
owners of private vehicles and
boats in operating condition, with
current Canal Zone registration
and license plate, or Republic of
Panama 10 prefix license plate,
with the corresponding inspection
sticker. -
Use of area for display of ve-
hicles and boats is at owner's own

risk. The Panama Canal Company-
Canal Zone Government assumes
no liability for damage, loss or
theft of property displayed in this
Seller's name, phone number
and the date and time the vehicle
or boat was placed in the area
must be displayed on a poster
attached in the inside of the ve-
hicle or boat. The poster shall not
exceed 2 square feet in area, and
may contain other sales informa-
tion. No other posters or signs
shall be displayed.
Vehicles may be displayed for
a period not to exceed 7 consecu-
tive days at any time. Any ve-
hicle remaining beyond a 7-day
period will be considered as aban-
doned and will be impounded by
the Canal Zone Police. Unauthor-

Ronald Bruce Hirschl, a sopho-
more pre-med student at the Uni-
versity of Michigan, has received
a $2,000 grant from the Univer-
sity's medical school to do neuro-
logical research.
Last summer, Hirschl served as
a voluntary research assistant to
Dr. Earl R. Feringa of the Neurol-
ogy staff at the University of Mich-
igan Medical Center doing neuro-
logical research in rat spinal cord
regeneration. The grant he has re-
ceived will allow him to continue
independent research in this .area
to find out if the spinal cord regen-
erates itself and, if so, how this
is accomplished. The practical ap-
plication of this would be of great
benefit to accident victims with
spinal injuries,
Hirschl, a 1976 graduate from
Balboa High School, was president
of the National Honor Society,

G(ft of the Panama Canal Museum

Message from the Governor
Several weeks ago I wrote a memorandum to the senior manage-
ment opicials of the Canal organization about the heavy backlog
of ships and the increase in their waiting time in Canal Zone waters.
I described the situation as the greatest operational challenge in
recent years. I did so not in any sense of criticism, but rather in
the interest of highlighting the seriousness of the problem and
mobilizing the total resources of the Canal organization toward its
resolution. I was well aware of the tremendous egorts of the entire
Marine Bureau, particularly our pilots, lock crews, linehandlers, tug
and launch crews, and marine tragic control personnel, all of whom
were working extended shifts in order to cope with the situation.
They needed and deserved a word of encouragement and all the
assistance that could be provided.
The response to the challenge can only be described as magnifi-
cent. As of several days ago, the backlog was reduced to normal
and average Canal Zone waters time. was restored to our high
standard. Once again the employee force had displayed the talent,
resourcefulness and epiciency for which the Panama Canal is well
known. This is the kind of performance world shipping has come
to expect and has enjoyed since the Canal was opened.
The backlog of ships began to develop in March of this year,
increasing in numbers and reaching a peak early in July. Many
factors contributed to this but the basic root cause was the. singifi-
cant increase in shipping through the Canal. This fiscal year
throsigh February the daily average of oceangoing ships was 32.8.
In stark contrast the average since March has been 36.9, an in-
crease of over 4 ships per day. Even more significant has been the
increase in the average size of ships which is reflected by the
Panama Canal net tonnage moving through the Canal. These
statistics are: average daily through February-388,488; and since
March a daily average of 464,634, an increase of over 75,000 tons
per day.
Such a sharp increase in workload (about 20 percent) was certain
to cause temporary problems. Indeed, if sustained we may con-
time to have periodic problems until additional resources are
obtained to meet the workload. Eforts are already underway in
this regard. Some long lead-time procurement items, such as loco-
motives, were placed on order over a year ago. Pilots and others
in critical skill areas are and will continue to be recruited in
increasing numbers. The timely allocation of resources to match
workload will continue to be a matter for priority attention of
management to insure epiciency and economy of Canal operations.
There should remain only the pleasant task of complimentine
those who accomplished this remarkable feat. Unfortunately, there
are those who choose to criticize irresponsibly without knowing
or asking about the facts. Unfounded and unsupported charges of
slow-downs and sabotage have been levied against .the very people
in the Canal to whom everyone owes a great debt of gratitude
I ask that you not be disheartened. I know and appreciate w at
you have done and are doing. No words or headlines can take awan
your accomplishments. Only you can do that. I am confident that
your tremendous pride in the record of Canal performance, a
record that you amassed, will continue to motivate you and insure
the continued efficiency of the waterway.
Finally. I went to extend a speciaEand sincere thanks to all those
who are carrying the heaviest burden in the movement of ships
through the Canal. I am cognizant of and appreciative of the heavu
workload and the wilFneness of those in the Canal to give that
extra effort which is the difference between mediocrity and ex-
cellence. The cooperation of all during this period of pressure and
tension is particularly heartwarming.

Limit on Amount

OF Money Orders

6085 1/p to $300
The limit on Canal Zone postal
money orders will be increased .
from $100 to $300 effective Au-
gust 14. Beginning on that day,
the current card money orders will
be replaced by a check-type money
order form similar to that used by
the United States Postal Service.
The changes will result in a faster
and more efficient issuing of money
orders in Canal Zone post offices.
The current $100 limit on carci
money orders means that patrons
desiring $300 worth of money
orders must, under the present
system, purchase three rizoney
orders and pay the $1.10 fee for
each one. Under the-new system,
patrons who purchase a $300
money order will pay only one fee
of $1.10.
Except for the savings allowed
by the increased limit on money
Orders, fees for Canal Zone money
orders will remain the same. They

Money orders purchased in the
Canal Zone will be valid in the
United States, its territories and
possessions, in Canada, and in
certain islands in the Caribbean.
A purchaser should tell the money
order clerk where payment is to
be made so that the payee will not
experience delay or difficulty in
cashing the money order.

There so Right Way

To Telephone for Help

In Case of Emergency

A candy factory employee falls
into .a vat of hot chocolate. and.
yells: Fire
After he's saved, one of his res-
eners asks: "Why did you yell
flis reply: Would you have come
if I yelled 'Chocolate'?"
That joke (courtesy of the Smo-
thers Brothers) proves there's an art
t all for heoc ing Ip.
Do you really know how to make
an emergency phone call? A lot of
people clon't-no joke!
In an emergency you obviously
waste precious time fumbling
through a telephone directory. So
. lie prepared by posting these num-
liers near your phone.
Fire division; police division;
local poisozi control center; hospital;
ambulance service; taxi company;
tmd one or more reliable neighbors.
When you make an emergency
phone call, here are five points yott
should cover clearly and quickly:
Tell where it happened. Give the
building number, the name of the
street and, if you live in an apart-
nient, the floor and number of your
Then repeat them. A brief de
scription of the house or apartment
building will also be helpful, es-
Ily at ht
pecia nig .
Tell what has happened. Isyour
. home on fire? Is someone bleeding
badly? Has someone had a heart
attack? Has someone accidentally
swallowed a poison or drug over-
, Tell who you are. That's im-
portant when the emergency isn't
obvious from the outside, especially
if a multifamily dwelling is in-
volved. A neighbor, asked for di-
rections, will be more likely to
recognize your name than your
house number-
Tell what kind of help is needed.
Explain what kind of equipment
you think will be necessary.
A lot to remember? No-it takes
about 10 seconds.
After you cover those important
points, don't hang up immediately.
Give the person you're talking to
a chance to ask questions.
What if it's at night and the
lights won't work?
All you have to do is dial "O" for
"Operator." Just feel for the finger
hole right below the finger-stop,
then pull the dial all the way
around in the usual manner. (Smart
idea: practice with your eyes

tours to the United States and
South America, traveling over
100,000 miles in the interest of
Canal Zone swimming. In the
troupe were the world's fastest
child swimmers.
At least two members of the
Governor's Staff, William De La
Mater and Hugh A. Norris, and
Theodore L. Bailey, manager, Tow-
boat Operations on the Atlantic
side, and others in Canal service
today were stars of the troupe.,
They made headlines in news-
papers of the day and thousands
cheered them wherever they ap-
peared. The troupe was once fea-
tured in a motion picture.
He also organized swimming ac-
tivities among the men and women
of the community and Balboa High
School students had a regular
schedule for their classes at the
Balboa pool. For years colleges
and universities in the United
States were proud to have swim-
mers who had been taught their
first strokes by Mr. Grieser. Among
those who starred at the various
colleges were Alan Ford, who set
a world record for the 100-yd free
style and was the world's fastest
swimmer at that time; Eddie
Wood; Billy Zemer; Henry Brewer-
ton; George Haldeman; and the
"world's fastest swimming twins"
Mack and Jack Walbridge. Among
the Olympic swimmers that he
trained were Alma Mann, who
starred in the 1924 Olympics;
Adelaide Lambert, 1928 Olympics;

and Josephine McKim, 1924, 1928
and 1932 Olympics.
Mr. Grieser also took an interest
in the aquatic treatment of polio
and arthritis and in teaching swim-
ming to the blind.
In addition to the many recogni-
tions he received in the Canal
Zone and neighboring countries,
Mr. Grieser was featured in News-
week Magazine and other publica-
tions in the United States and, in
1946, was awarded the Gold
Medal of Merit by the Republic
of Panama for 25 years of coopera-
tion and goodwill in the field of
After he retired, Mr. Grieser
moved to Ann Arbor, Mich. where
he was a swimming advisor for
several years. Later he went to live
in Ireland where he died a few
years ago.
Today's recipients of the Grieser
Award may not know its history;
being aware of the notable feats
and heritage behind the award will
give it more meaning. Others may
be inspired.

Foi- the benefit .of Srn.LwAY
readers who may not know about
Henry J. Crieser and the Grieser
Award to the outstanding swimmer
of the year, Mr. Grieser was the
swimming and diving coach in the
Canal Zone who trained some of
the outstanding aquatic stars of
two generations. He gave the Canal
Zone a new dimension of fame by
devoting more than 30 years of his
life to teaching children in the
Canal Zone and Panama to swim
expertly, sending many of them to
the Olympics and to other inter-
national competitions.
He was a native of Steinway,
N.Y. and came to the Canal Zone
in 1917, employed as a physical
training instructor in the Depart-
ment of Education and soon after
became nationally known as the
Canal Zone's famous swimming
- coach. Through the years, his con-
tributions to the happiness and
well-being of both children and
adults of his time so greatly en-
deared him to the community that
when he retired on, April 24,
1949, he was given the highest
tribute ever received by a retiring
employee. For the first time, the
Governor presented a retirement
certificate at a public gathering
and that day was designated
"Coach and Mrs. Grieser Honor
Shortly after Mr. Grieser arrived
on the Isthmus, he organized the
Red, White and Blue Troupe
which later went on exhibition

Seven sections of the course in
developmental speed reading will
}>e offered by the Canal Zone Col-
lege during the coming fall se-
mester. *
The course (College Reading:
ED 140) was initiated in 1971 in
response to requests by students
for a program to help build voca-
hulary, and improve reading and
study skilb. Since then, an in-
creasing number of students, both
civilian and military, U.S. and non-
U.S., youth and adult have success-
fully completed this class. The ba-
sic assumption of College Reading
is that all college-level students
can make significant gains in their
vocabulary, speed and accuracy of
reading, retention of what is read'
concentration, and communication
and study skills. ED 140 is par-
ticularly designed for- those who
must get the most from their
reading in the least time-
Five sections of College Reading
are scheduled to begin August 14
or 15, the beginning dates for the
full semester: ED 140 A and B are
scheduled to meet three times per
week for 50-minute sessions each;
section C is scheduled to meet
for two 2-hour sessions per week
during a 12-week period, and sec-
tions D and F will meet twice per

Q. When waiting at an intersec-
tion to make a left turn, such as the
Balboa Road-La Boca Road inter-
section next to the Chase Bank,
do I have to wait for a green
A. You do not have to wait for
a green arrow. The arrow is to
allow left turn traffic during peak
traffic hours. A right turn on red
is permitted on a circular red
signal, but not on a red arrow.
Q. Who has the right of way at
an intersection where the traffic
signals are all flashing red?
A. All vehicles must come to a
complete stop on a flashing red

signal. After stopping, and the in-
tersection is clear, a vehicle may
proceed with caution through the
intersection. No one has the right
of way until he stops.
Q. If a vehicle is in the right
hand lane of a divided highway,
and arrows are painted indicating
a right turn,.can the vehicle con-
tinue through the intersection, or
drive left into the left lane?
A. Once a vehicle is in a lane
with arrows painted on the high-
way, it must obey the direction of
the arrows and turn either right or
left. Failure to do so may result in
an accident when changing lanes.

recreation program

After school is out, it isn't long before children begin to voice the old,
familiar complaint that "there's nothing to do." But those participating
in the Division of Schools' summer recreation program have had a host
of activities to help beat the ho-hums. Archery, handcrafts, basketball
and chess are just a few of the many games and activities being pursued
by Canal Zone youngsters at gynmstsiums and playshelters on both sides
of the Isthmus. A staff of coaches, recreation assistants, and student
assistants are on the job to help kids learn the basics. There is still one
week of fun left and it's never too late to join. You can register at the
gymnasium or playshelter nearest your home.

9 el aumento en su tempo de espera en aguas del Canal. Describe la situa~
cidn camo el mayor reto que se nos habia presentedo en las operaciones
de anos recrentes, no a mantra de critical, sino con el afin de poner de
relieve la seriedacl del problema y movilizar todos los recursos con que
cuenta la organizacidn del _Canal para resolverlo. Tenia conciencia del
tremendo esfuerzo que le correspondia a la Direccidn de Marina en pleno,
particularmente a nuestros prdcticos, alas cuadrillas de las esclusas, pasa-
cables, cuadrillas de remolcadores y lanchas y controladores de trcifico
maritime, quienes en su totalidacl se encontraban trabajando turns pro-
longados para hacerle frente a la situacidn. Necesitaban y se merecian una
palabra de aliento, ademds de toda la ayuda que pudiera prestirseles.
La respuesta que dieron a este reto sdlo puecle calificarse cle magnifica.
Hace varios dias que el mimero de naves en espera disminuyd a su nor-
malidad y su tempo en aguas de la Zona del Canal coloid a ser el cle.
nuestras normas de alta calidad. Una vez mds la fuerza laboral desplegd
el talento, ingenio y eficiencia que caracterizan al Canal de Panamd. Es la
calidad que la navegacida mundial ha llegado a esperar del Canal desde
ne fuera abierto.
En el mes de marzo de este ailo comenzd a clesarrollarse un aumento
en el m2mero de naves en espera, que alcanzd su mdximo en los primeros
dias de julio. Muchos factors contribuyeron a este aumento, aunque su
causa fundamental estriba en un significativo aumento de los trdnsitos
por el Canal. Durante este ailo fiscal hasta febrero, el promedio diario de
barcos de alta mar fue de 32.8. Un notable contrast surgid desde el mes
de marzo con un promedio de 36.9, lo que representd on aumento de
4 naves por dia. De mayor importancia atin ha sido el aumento en el
tamailo promedio de. las naves que atradesaron el Canal, reflejado en
toneladas netas del Canal de Panamd. Estas estadisticas sefialan on pro-
medio diario hasta febrero de 388,488; y un promedio diario desde
marzo de 464,634, lo que represent un aumento de mds de 75,000
toneladas por dia.
Era indudable que un aumento tan pronunciado (de alrededor de 20 por
riento) en el trabajo crearia dificultades transitorias. En effect, de man-
tenerse esta situacidn, puede que surfan dificultades periddicas hasta que
puedan movilizarse los recursos adicionales para atenderla, y ya se estin
hacienda esfuerzos en este sentido. Cierto equipo cuya adquisicida debe
hacerse con sufficient anticipacida, tal como las locomotoras, fue pedido
hace mis de on affo. Se estd contratando un mayor mimero de prdcticos
y glemds trabajadores especializados para las dreas mds critical, y se con-
tinuardn contratando. La administracidn atenderd con prelacida la asig-
nacidn oportuna de recursos para cumplir con el column de trabajo, y
garantizar la eficiencia y economia de las operaciones del Canal.
Sdlo restaria la agradable farea de felicitar a quienes llevaron a cabo
tan extraordinary proeza. Desafortunadamente, hay quienes optan por
critical irresponsablemente sin. concern o investigar los hechos. Se han
hecho cargo infundados e injustificados de trabajo a desgano y sabotage,
contra el mismo personal del Canal al que todos. debemos una gran grati-
thd. Les rhegb AB desolatorse. Conozco if aprecio su labor y la que
prosigues hdiendo. Los logros que han obtenido no pueden deshacerse
con palabras ni titulares. Sdlo ustedes tiened la facultad de hacerlo. Conflo
en que el enorme orgullo que wenten por los altos niveles de trabajo del
Canal, niceles que ustedes han alcanzado, continuard estimuldndoles y
garantizando la eficiencia continue de la via maritime.
Finalmente, mi especial y sincere agradecimiento a todo el personal qtie
Ileva la mds pesada carga de hacer pasar los barcos por el Canal. Reconoz-
co y agradezco la ardua tarea y disposicidn de quienes dedican al Canal
ese esfuerzo adicional que marca la diferencia entre la mediocridad y la
excelencia. La cooperacidn de todos durante este period de presiones U
tensions ha sido particularmente alentadora,
