Is Issued-

A regulation on the use of
seatbelts in official Panama Ca-
nal vehicles has been issued by
Acting Governor David S. Par-
ker.-The usefulness of seatbelts
can be attested to by Captain
Roy H. Rice (SPILLWAY, May
31, 1963), who was possibly
saved from death in an auto ac-
cident because he had fastened
his seatbelt.
Text of the regulation issued
this month is as follows:
-"Seatbelts can help protect
employees from death or crit-
ical injury. An immense amount
of scientific research, including
actual vehicle crashes under
controlled conditions, proves
that the automotive seatbelt,
when worn snugly fitted across
the hips to restrain the upward
as well as forward motion of
the human body' in automobile
collisions, is the most effective
single item of protective equip-
ment presently available to
reduce' the toll of traffic inju-
ries and deaths.
"In view of the proven protec-
tion afforded by seat belts, it
is required that complete sets
of seat belts be installed in
-Canal Zone, Government/Pan-
ama Canal Company sedans
and station wagons.
"Drivers and passengers are
urged to wear the seat belts at
all times, particularly when
traveling on the Trans-Isthmian
Highway, Pan American High-
way, Tocumen Road. Gamboa

Air Mail Overprint

For Zone Envelopes

An interesting air mail enve-
lope went on sale at Balboa
Post Office last Saturday for
the first time and soon will

lope, which will be offered to
Canal Zone postal customers

ready for distribution, is a re-
vamped, obsolete 3-cent enve-
lope, about 4 by 9/ inches,

Safe Boating


Will Begin Sunday

WHEREAS recreational boating is playing an increasingly im-
portant part in the lives of millions of Americans who look to it
as. a means of maintaining physical vigor and mental alertness;
WHEREAS the resulting increased use of our waterways has
caused a corresponding increase in safety problems; and
WHEREAS this healthful outdoor activity can be enhanced
and loss of life and property reduced by adherence to safe boat-
ing principles; and
WHEREAS the Congress of the United States, in recognition
of the importance of such boating practices, by a joint resolution,
approved June 4, 1948 (72 Stat. 179), has requested the President
to proclaim annually the week that includes the Fourth of July
as National Safe Boating Week:
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, do hereby designate
the week beginning June 30, 1963, as National Safe Boating Week.
In pursuance of the objectives of this Proclamation, I urge
all persons, organizations, and Government agencies interested
in recreational boating and safety afloat to publicize and observe
National Safe Boating Week.
I also invite the Governors of the States, the Commonwealth
of Puerto Rico, and other areas subject to the jurisdiction of the
United States to join in this observance.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and
caused the' Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
DONE at the City of Washington this twenty-sixth day of
February in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and,sixty-three,
and of the Independence of the United States of "America the one
hundred and eighty-seventh.

Summer Reading

Real boating enthusiasts are
safe boating enthusiasts so
they may have many more
years of boating. They're inter-
ested in statistics that can't be
compiled from accidents that
haven't happened.
It's on these bases that the
Canal Zone Pacific Power
Squadron is joining in observ-
ance of and calling attention to
National Safe Boating Week,
June 30 July 6.
The Canal Zone squadron
includes' members all across
the Isthmus and since being
chartered September 12, 1949,
has joined with other units and
the thousands of members of
the United States Power Squa-
drons in stressing educational,
navigation, and safety in pro-
grams and classes.
More than 160 were enrolled
in its last class. Benefits of the
Isthmian squadron's efforts ex-
tend far beyond its membership
to many others of the hundreds
of pleasure boat owners and
crews. The power squadron's
classes have included Spanish-
speaking students working on
a buddy system by which a
classmate translates, as class-
work and practical experience
training are in progress.
There was a drop in reported
power boat accidents last year,
but of equal importance are
these figures: Of 529 persons
who perished in the water in
the United States in such
mishaps, 441 had no lifesaving
device. Of the 166 in peril with
lifesaving equipment. 98 were

The Case of the Stepdaughter's Secret is the latest Perry
Mason story by Earle Stanley Gardner. The plot is presented in
Mr. Gardner's usual skillful fashion. Also, as usual, there is an
exciting denouement with an authentic court room scene. How-
ever, the stepdaughter's secret has an unusual twist that helps
to make this book one of Mr. Gardner's most effective mysteries.
The Doughboys, the Story of' the AEF, 1917 1918 by Law-
rence Stallings is an interesting piece of writing. As a veteran
of both World Wars, Mr. Stallings is able to. give authentic flavor
to his narrative with dozens of individual anecdotes which make
the story very real. The book describes each'of the main battles
in which Americans participated in World War I but with parti-
cular emphasis on the Battle of the Marne and of Belleau Wood.
The author collaborated with Maxwell Anderson in the famous
war play, "What Price Glory."
After the Fine Weather by Michael Gilbert is an excellent
story by a distinguished writer of mysteries and whodunits. In
the words of another famous detective story writer this latest
book of Mr. Gilbert is- "one of the all-time best of the world-
affairs-suspense-adventure novels." The setting is in the Tyrol
and has a diplomatic society flavor.
Murder a la Mode by Patricia Moyes, according to one of her
admirers, contains all the magnificent apparatus of a simon-
pure detective story. The plot develops in the nerve-wracking
city room of a famous fashion magazine just before the latest
news from Paris is about to break. Miss Moyes herself worked
for three years on a fashion magazine and so knows many of the
intriguing details of the business -world of high fashion.
The Shoes of the Fisherman by Morris L. West is a religious
novel and a most unusual one. It is particularly timely because
of the recent election qf Pope Paul VI by the College of Cardinals
in Rome. In Mr. West's novel, he places the reader in the Vatican
and in a similar situation with the, exception that the Cardinals
elect as Pope a middle-aged Ukrainian who has spent long and
tortuous years in a Red prison. The many problems which the
new Pope must meet include dealing with people within the
Vatican and in Rome, the U. S., Russia and other nations. The
attitude is entirely compassionate. The book is distinguished by
its subject as well as by its writing.

One Year Ago

This Week
The most severe thunderstorm
of the year through June, a
24-hour rainfall, hit the Paci-
fic side, producing 2.54 inches
of rain. Little damage was
reported, despite the 21-mile
an hoir wind. The record
rainfall for the same period
was a 4.49 inch shower on
August 28, 1944.
Students from the School of
Diplomacy, University of Pan-
ama, got a first hand view of
the Panama Canal operation
when they visited Miraflores
Locks. Sixty students, ac-
companied by Dr. Julio Lina-

A "Parent's Lament

Always we hear the plaintive cry of the teenagers:
The answer is: GO HOME!
Hang the storm windows, paint the woodwork. Rake
the leaves. Mow the lawn. Shovel the walk. Wash the
car. Learn to cook. Scrub some floors. Repair the sink.
Build a boat. Get a job.
Help the minister, priest or rabbi, the Red Cross,
Salvation Army. Visit the sick. Assist the poor. Study
your lessons. And then when you are through-and not
too tired-read a book.
Your parents do not owe you entertainment. Your
village does not owe you recreation facilities. The world
does NOT owe you a living. You owe the world someth-
ing. You owe it your time and energy and your talents
so that no one will be at war, or in poverty, or sick, or
lonely again.
In plain, simple Words: GROW UP; quit being a cry-
baby; get out of your dream world; develop a backbone,
not a wishbone; and start acting like a man or a woman.
I'm a parent. I'm tired of nursing, protecting, help-
ing, appealing, begging, excusing, tolerating, denying
myself needed comforts for your every whim and fancy,
just because your selfish ego instead of common sense
dominates your personality, and thinking, and requests.

Con frecuencia se escuchan estos lamentos de labios de
nuestra juventud modern, liena de ENUIE, falta de direc-
trices, rumbos y metas.
Se aburren y fastidian y andan como a la deriva y con
desgano. Pululan por las r6as al encuentro de otros igual-
mente sumidos en el hondo desencanto que produce el ocio.
La holgazaneria en nada salisface y si desorienta y aburre
hasta la irritaci6n.
Por eso a veces pensamos que acaso resultase mejor
buscar a nuestro derredor para encontrar fuentes de inte-
r6s, algo que ocupe nuestras energies y sea un reto a flues-
tra ansiedad creative.
Aqui mismo, en la casa, por ejemplo, hay un c6mulo
de quehaceres provechosos y entretenidos. Veamos... el
gozne de la puerta. tiene un chirrido que clama por la ac-
ci6n del aceite; la cerradura no ajusta bien y podemos pro-
bar a repararla; la ventana no cierra; .las aldabas requie-
ren atenci6n; una manita de pintura daria mas luz al cuar-
to; hay una gotera facil de reparar...
Afuera?... Precisa cortar el c6sped, lavar el carro,
reparar la cerca, podar las plants.
,Se es muier? Tantas prendas precisan surcir; el arte
culinario es realmente fascinante; el trabajo social pide
nuevas manos; el Hospital del Nifio acogeria nuestra ayu-
da; los enfermos, los pobres, los ciegos, los huerfanitos re-
claman un poco de nuestra atenci6n y carifio.
Y luego .. hay tanto que leer, que aprender! iC6mo
aburirse en un mundo asi? Tanto por hacer! Tanto que
El don de la juventud nos fue dado para utilizarlo: ora
en el propio provecho, ora en el del pr6jimo. Seria un cri-
men desperdiciar nuestras energies, nuestro talent, cuando
tantas cosas lo reclaman.
"No hay nada que hacer, qu6 aburrimiento" es solo
para los imbeciles, los tontos y quienes no merecen ese don
divino de la juventud que Dios nos diera para aprovecharlo
en algo 6til. Recordemos que mariana ya no seremos
j6venes... !
