Community Eouse for Soldiers and Sailors.

The National Catholic War Council has begun the erection of a
community house for soldiers and sailors of the United States, on
Balboa road, diagonally opposite the present location of the Army
and Navy Y. M. C. A. in the old Balboa restaurant. The building
will b? of concrete, two stories in height, with a length of 100 feet and
a depth of 57 feet.

The first floor will contain a lobby, billiard room, reading and writ-
ing room, and classrooms, in addition to the office and quarters for
the three women who are to have charge of the house. The second
floor will have a dance hall 84 feet by 31 feet, with balconies front
and rear. In front of the building will be a portico, 11 feet wide by
68 feet long, with 8 circular columns 2 feet in diameter and 20 feet
high, extending to the roof. A broad flight of steps extending across
the front will lead from the ground level to the portico.



April Weather Probabilities.

The following weather conditions may be expected at the Canal entrances during
the month of April, 1920. These predictions are based on the weather records at
Cristobal and Balboa Heights for the last 12 and 14 years, respectively:

]]'iuds — April marks the end of the dry season and some change toward rainy
season conditions may be expected the latter part of the month. There will be a
general decrease in wind movement. At the Atlantic entrance northerly winds will
prevail with an average hourly velocity of about 13 miles. On the Pacific Coast



498



THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



the prevailing direction will be from the northwest with an average hourly velocity
of about 9 miles. A maximum velocity greater than 30 or 35 miles an hour is not
likely to occur on either coast.

Rain — Light to moderate showers may be expected occasionally at both Canal
entrances. The monthly average rainfall at Cristobal is 4.35 inches, and at Balboa
Heights, 3.09 inches. About 16 days with rain (0.01 inch or more) may be expected
on the Atlantic Coast and 9 on tha Pacific Coist.

Fogs — No fogs are likely to occur at either Canal entrance. Occasional fogs may
be expected over the Gaillard Cut section of the Canal, but these will probably be
light and be dissipated before 8.30 a. m.

Temperature — The monthly mean temperature will average about 81 degrees
Fahrenheit on both coasts, but the daily range will be much greater on the Pacific
side. On the Atlantic side, 90 degrees Fahrenheit is the highest and 72 degrees
Fahrenheit the lowest that may be expected, but a maximum of 97 degrees and a
minimum of 64 degrees may possibly occur on the Pacific Coast.

Relative humidity — The relative humidity will average about 80 per cent on the
Atlantic side and about 78 per cent on the Pacific side, but the daily range is much
greater on the Pacific side.

Storms — No general storms are likely, except an occasional "Norther" may occur
during the month. The "Norther" of April 3-6, 1915, was the most severe storm
since the American occupation. A maximum wind velocity of 46 miles an hour from
the north was recorded, the highest wind velocity on record for the Atlantic side.
However, this was a storm of unusual intensity. Intensified northeast trades fre-
quently cause rough seas and a heavy swell outside the breakwater at Colon. Smooth
and moderate seas may be expected on the Pacific side.

Tides — Tidal fluctuations on the Atlantic side are too small to affect navigation
Balboa tide predictions for April are given below:

The tides are placed in the order of their occurrence: the times of high and low tides are shown on
the upper lines. The figures in boldfaced type are hours and elevations between noon and midnight;
ante meridian figures are given in the ordinary lightfaced type. The time is Cosmopolitan btandarcl
for the meridian 75° W. . „*:_„

The elevations of the water are shown on the second line for each day; a comparison ot consecutive
heights will indicate whether it is high or low water. Heights are reckoned from mean low watei
springs which is 8.3 below mean sea level and is the datum of soundings on the Coast and ( .eodetic
Survey'charts for this region. The depth of water may accordingly be estimated by adding the taDU-
lar height of the tide to the soundings, unless a minus (-) sign is before the height, in which case it
is to be subtracted. The annual inequality or variation in the mean sea level is included, in tne
predictions.

Postal and Cable Addresses of The Panama Canal.

The postal address is, M "The Panama Canal, Balboa Heights, Canal Zone," or "The Panama
Canal, Washington, D. C." . ,, . ,
