Canal Can Now Deduct



Union Dues From Pay


Gift of the Panama Canal Museuma



.' *.' ." -


Labor unions in the United
I States have achieved one of
their longtime goals: to have
federal agencies cooperate on
deduction of union dues from
the pay of members who
specifically request it.
j Some Canal Zone labor unions
have also been petitioning for
this step. Now it has been
taken, and will go into effect
early in the New Year under
provisions laid out by the Civil
Service Commission, and mo-
A dified to fit local conditions.
For some years, it had been
thought special l legislation
would be necessary. But the
late President K en n ed y re-
quested the CSC to develop re-
gulations permitting allotments
for the collection of such dues
by the government if re-
quested and the transfer of


Parkers To Go

S To Penonome

SFor Annual Fair

Lt. Gov. David S. Parker
and Mrs. Parker are traveling
today to Penonome, in the
central Province of Code to
take part in the annual fair
held in this busy town.
The President -of P an a m a
and Mrs. Roberto F. Chiari
were to be on hand to open
the fairat10 a.m.
As it did last year, the Pan-
ama Canal organization is par-
ticipating with displays and
films. The burr:tos Mancha
and Gato from Summit Gar-
dens are also making a repeat
performance at the fair.
The Penonome fair will open
today, Friday; December .13
and continue through Decem-
ber 15. Large: crowds of fair-
goers are expected from the
Canal Zone and Panama since
fair weather is forecast (with
fingers crossed) due to the tra-
ditional ending of the rainy.
season by mid-December.
The Pafiama Canal organ;za-
.,. tion will have six shadow box
displays and one Selectrovision
machines in the panama Ca-
nal exhibition area. A Panama
Canal film. will be shown with
Spanish dialogue, as well as
other films of general interest.
Mancha and Gato will be
available for burro rides for the
;: young fairgoers.
A dog show is planned as one
S the new features of the Peno-
nome fair and residents of .the
Canal Zone as well as Panama
are invited to enter dogs.


dues to employee organizations.
So with the first pay checks
received for the first full pay
period beginning after January
1, deductions for union dues
can be made along with those
for rent, utilities, insurance
and other items. Unions will
pay a 2-cent service charge
for each deduction.
Not all of the 38 unions
formally recognized by the Ca-
nal organization will be af-
fected. A score or more have
not taken up the plan, prefer-
ring to have members pay dues
direct to the r own treasurers.
Nor can the deductions be


made for every member of
every union. Each employee
who elects to pay dues in this
fashion must be within the so
called "unit of recognition"
formally recognized by the Ca-
nal.
Authorization forms should
be signed by member emplo-
yees, certified by the union and
returned to the Personnel Di-
rector by December 15.
Once given, authorizations
can be revoked at stated inter-
vals.
Authorization f o r m s have
been distributed to interested
unions.


MOMMIES STILL BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS: Mrs. Valley
Hutchings, center, insurance clerk, and Mrs. Jackie Gilbert, dis-
ability relief assistant, both of the Personnel Bureau Employee
Services Branch, were among the kiddies who called upon Santa
Claus at the Balboa Retail Store annex last Saturday. Both were
given chewing gum, as were all Santa's visitors, and Mrs. Hutch-
ings holds the box of balloons from which each child received
one. Santa will be at the Balboa Retail Store Annex again to-
morrow from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. He also is
due at Coco Solo tomorrow from 1 to 4 p.m. After that and until
Christmas Eve he will visit several other Christmas parties and
celebrations in Panama and the Canal Zone.


Mamma Can't Jingle Gold Coin Bangles


C a n a Zone residents are.
being reminded that there are
certain restrictions and prohi-
bit:ons' on the importation into
the United States of gold coins,
whether they are part of a
collection or attached to bra-
celets or other jewelry.
According to a letter receiv-
ed by the Canal Zone Customs
from the Bureau of Customs in
New Orleans, persons should,
in accordance with the U.S.


gold regulations, requisition
import license from the Office
of Domestic Gold and Silver-
Operations of the Treasury in
Washington, D.C., before at-
tempting to take gold coins into
the United States.
Unless the importer is in pos-
session of an import license
issued by office, the coins may
be held by Customs at the port
of entry.


THE CHRISTMAS DELUGE of packages and mail from the four
corners of the earth is flooding all available space in the Canal
Zone postoffices. And no sooner are the heaped high bags of
mail sorted and delivered to the addressees than another pile of
mail arrives and the cycle starts over again. Vincent Lombroia

Santa's helpers.

Malaria Down On Zone;



New Record Possible


Only five cases of malaria
have been reported among Ca-
nal employees so far this year.
If the trend continues at the
present rate, a new record is
in the making.
The best rate per one thou-
sand employees since 1906 was
6 cases per thousand employees
in 1956.
The following year, ho-
wever, a budget cut reduc-
ed personnel in the Sanita-
tion Division, and with re-
sultant dilution of anti-ma-
laria measures, the rate
rose sharply to 5.8 The pre-
sent rate is .4 cases per
one thousand employees.
Health authorities point out
that approximately 50 square
miles of the Zone, including the
15 townsites, are under the dai-
ly control of the Sanitation Divi-
sion. The maintenance of over
300 miles of drainage ditches
and the process of larviciding


are used locally to combat the
mosquito ,which thrives in the
Isthmian climate.
There are four types of ma-
laria: Plasmodium vivax, Plas-
modium ovale, Plasmodiuna
falciparum and Plasmodiumi
malariae. The two most com-
mon of the four are vivax and
falciparum, as far as the Canal
Zone is concerned.
Case studies show that
the vivax form is charac-
terized by a fever which
rises and falls every other
day. The falciparum has a
more irregular fever pat-
tern.
The vivax form is by far the
more common in the Zone.
Since 1960 vivax cases have
totaled 46 and falciparum have
numbered 15. All figures are
for Canal employees only.
So far this year only four
vivax cases and one falciparum
case have been reported.


Rabies Shots


Urged For Cats

All residents of -the Canal
Zone have been urged by the
Health Bureau to have their
pet cats innoculated against
rabies. The same action should
be taken for any dogs four
months old and older who have
not had rabies shots or whose
shots are not up to date. Shots
are strongly recommended for
puppies which have attained
the proper age since the licens-
ing period.
Rabies shots are recommend-
ed because of the recent case
of cat rabies in the Gavilan
area. Rabies in cats had not
been found previously on the
Canal Zone.
This followed a case of a
rabid dog which died last July,
the first such case since 1910.
Seven persons who were bit-
ten or scratched by the rabid
cat are undergoing treatment
at Gorgas Hospital.
Anyone bitten by any animal
should seek medical treatment
promptly. And the animal res-
ponsible should be captured,
and confined by Canal vetera-
narians. The police will assist.
Stray does and cats should
be reported to police.


Visitors Welcome To Join Tour Groups



On Launch Trips Through Gaillard Cut


Isthmians who are expecting
guests to visit them here during
the holidays or later can
often arrange for their visitors to
get a close-up look at what a
recent newsman visitor called
"the greatest show on earth" -
the Panama Canal.
Educational trips to inspect part
of the waterway channel are fre-
quertly booked for large groups
by the Canal Zone Guide Service.
The trips go through Gaillard Cut
and afford a view of the new
widening project.
But often the launches Las
Cruces and Reina Manuelita are
not filled to capacity. In such
cases, individual visitors may
be booked to go along on an
accommodation basis.
Interested persons should tele-
phone the Canal Zone Guide Ser-
vice Balboa 1492 or Panama
2-1660 and leave their own
telephone numbers, along with
their names.
If openings arise, they will
be notified they can take the
launch trip.
The same accommodation ser-
vice is available the year round for


Isthmian residents who have nev-
er been through the Cut, or who
wish a repeat trip.
No charges are made for in-
dividuals who join the launch
trips under these conditions. But
such persons are responsible for
their own vehicle or train trans-
portation to and from the dock
from which they leave, and the
point where passengers debark.
Most trips start at the Pedro
Miguel Boat Landirg. a short
distance from the Pedro Miguel
Railroad Station. They end at
Gamboa, near the railroad sta-
tion there. Both points are on a
main highway along which com-
mon carrier buses ply about every
15 minutes. Trains run on publish-
ed schedules.
Local individuals making the
trips with their guests usually
drive to Pedro Miguel, park their
cars, and catch a bus or Panama
Railroad train at Gamboa for the
15-minute return trip to the park-
ing lot.
The launch Las Cruces carries
200 persons, the Reina Manuelita,
30. These craft sometimes fill up
nearly to capacity during holiday


periods. But there are sufficient
seats for all passengers. There is
protection from the sun. Both
launches have drinking water and
sanitary facilities.
On both, a member of the
Guide Service explains the
landmarks in Gaillard Cut and
progress of the current cut-
widening work. The trip
takes about an hour.
Now and again large groups
book a land tour of the Canal
Zone and it is occasionally pos-
sible to fill individual avcant
seats on the buses which usually
transport them from the Civil Af-
fairs Building on Gaillard High-
way and return them to the same
point after a trip to Summit Gar-
dens and its menagerie, and a
stop at Miraflores Locks.
At Miraflores, a Canal film is
shown at the theater near the
observation s t a n d whenever
enough people collect. And a
guide is on duty every day from
9 a.m. until 5 p.m. to explain
lockages and answer questions
about ships and the waterway.
Individual visitors and small
groups in cars are welcome with-


out advance notice. Large groups
in buses are asked to notify the
Guide Service of time.
At Gatun a similar service
Is offered. It centers around
a brand new observation
stand near the lock walls.
Pacific siders themselves often
take guests on a Panama Rail-
roal trip which affords many
views of the channel. Stopping
at Gatun, they observe ships mov-
ing through the three-step locks.
then proceed to Cristobal and
Colon (by bus, train, or taxi).
This gives visitors the expe-
rience of riding on the first trans-
continental railroad. For the re-
turn Trans-Isthmian trip, there
is a choice of the railroad or a
Panama bus line.
Atlantic siders sometimes take
visitors on the sightseeing traim
trip in reverse. But vehicle trans-
port also is required to reach
Miraflores, which is not the case
at Gatun.
Most of the Gaillard Cut tripe
are booked well in advance for
groups of school children from
the Canal Zone or Panama, or for
community clubs or church
groups on educational tours.,

Third Oral Dose

Due Right Now

For Polio Safety
Now is the time for the third
(booster) dose of oral polio vac-
cine for all those who have not
had it. Oral polio vaccine is taken
by mouth on a sugar cube and
to date this is the most painless
immunization that has been devis-
ed for the protection of the in-
dividual and those with whom he
is associated.
Paralytic poliomyelitis is -still
not completely obliterated and it
will not be until our population is
immunized.
So far in 1963 there have been
370 cases of poliomyelitis report-
ed to the U. S. Department of
Health Education and Welfare.
The latest weekly report from
this Department listed six new
cases which occurred in Florida,
Texas, Georgia, Alabama, and Mi-
chigan.
Oral polio vaccine is available
through your local Community
Health Center. Check with the
Public Health nurse or call the
Division of Preventive Medicine
and Quarantine (Balboa 4295) if
you have any questions.
Give yourself and your family a
safe and healthy Christmas by
being sure that all are protected
from paralytic polio regardless
of whether you spend Christmas
in the United States or on the
Isthmus.

'Honor Awards


Made At First


ROTC Reviews

The ROTC units of Balboa
and Cristobal High Schools held
separate reviews Wednesday,
the first of the year for each
of the schools, at which several
awards were given to outstand-
ing cadets and an outstanding
company.
At the BHS review the
outstanding indi v idu a I
award for the first six-
weeks period went to Cadet
Pvt. Miguel Osborne, and
the outstanding NCO award
for the -same per iood to
Cadet Sgt. Vaighn Taylor.
Pvt. Richard Hoyle and
Cadet Sgt. John Colacicco re-
ceived the outstanding indivi-
dual award and the outstanding
NCO award, respectively, for
the second six-weeks period.
The reviewing officer, Lt.
Col. W. W. Woodside, executive
officer of the 193rd Infantry
Brigade, presented Cadet Capt.
Michael Bruce, Balboa Bat-
talion Commander, the Army
and Navy Legion of Valor
Award, which annually goes to
the most outstanding M-2 cadet
in the brigade.
The Cristobal High School
review was held in honor
of Paul Beck, CHS princi-
pal, and Carl Maedl, as-
sistant principal.
Awards included the presen-
tation of the outstanding M-1

Warning: Your Automobile Insurance

May Not Bv Good in Central America


Motorists who are planning
to drive to Costa Rica or other
Central American countries
during the holidays or the dry
season are counselled to check
their automobile liability insur-
ance to make sure it applies
there.
One Canal employee who
made a recent trip did not do
so. He had a traffic accident
and made the unhappy disco-
very that he was not covered
by insurance.
Many policies sold on the
Canal Zone contain the follow-
ing paragraph, or something
similar:
"This insurance applies
only to accidents which oc-
cur during the policy period
within the United States of
-America, its territories or
po sessions, or Canada, Re-
public of Panama and -the
Canal Zone."
Motorists who expect to drive
beyond the Panama border
should check with their insur-
ance companies, or better,
.with the local agents of the
latter.
For a small extra premium.
a special endorsement can be


attached to policies extending
coverage to Central America
(which for this purpose in-
cludes Mexico).
Endorsements can be arrang-
ed for 30, 60 or 90 days, de-
pending on the motor'd's trav-
el plans.

COIN EXHIBIT
The First National Bank in
Chicago Heights, Ill. recently
announced a public exhibit from
Panama including coins,
stamps, pictures, maps and
costume dolls. Mrs. Paul Otis
developed the exhibit after re-
ceiving information from the
Inter-American Woman's Club
of Panama. Some of the items
exhibited were more than (400
years old.


Bulldog Swimmers



Win Initial Meets


Balboa High School's swim-
ming team, under the direc-
tion of Don Connors, has
splashed its way to two re-
sounding wins in the first two
swim meets of the four-meet
season.
In the first, held at Coco
Solo, the BHS girls triumphed
67-25, while Balboa's boys ac-
cumulated 71 points to 22 for
Canal Zone College and 2 for
Cristobal High School. The
highlight of the meet was a
new interscholastic record, set
by Roark Summerford of Bal-
boa High School. Roark won
the 100 yard breaststroke in
1:20.8, break'hg his own re-
cord of 1:21.1 set in 1961 at
this same pool. Balboa swept
seven events by taking first,
second and third.
Extra practice paid off for
all the swimmers in the second


Passengers Shed

Shoes, Jewelry

Ahoard Cristohal

Paging Goody Two-Shoes, who
is minus two shoes?
If a little girl missing some
shoes since a recent voyage on
the SS Cristobal will call, or
have her Mummy call, the
Water Transportation Division
(3-1674) the officials there will
be most happy to return the
so-far unclaimed shoes.
The shoes, which would fit a
little girl of about 6 years and
another child a bit older, are
part of the contents of an
unclaimed piece of luggage. A
nice :piece of luggage, too. It
is a round, tan, hat box type
of travel case which contains,
besides the shoes, two swim-
ming suits, one a blue-flowered
suit, and beach wear.
The Water Transportation
Division also has on hand sev-
eral other items that were left
by their owners on board the
vessel. A men's jewelry box
that contains Masonic jewelry
remains unclaimed. This case
also holds a rather valuable
diamond pin, and it is hoped
the owner will identify and
claim his property as soon as
possible.
Two men's rings and a boy's
ring also are at the Water
Transr -tation Division office,
awaiting their owners.

'The Innocent Dreamers by
Alice Tisdale Hobart is a com-
pelling story of interracial mar-
riage, with the rise of Red
China as the dramatic back
drop. Mrs. Hobart has been a
successful novelist for many
years. Her best known novel
with an earlier but similar
background is Oil for the Lamps
of China.
The Fifth Planet by Fred and
Geoffrey Hoyle is a science fic-
tion tale about a newly dis-
covered planet believed to be
very much like Earth. There
is a harrowing race between
the Communists and the leaders
of the West to explore it. The
time is 2087 A.D. It's exciting
and not too unbelievable even
for those of us who are more
earthbound in our approach to
reading.
The Age of Napoleon by J. D.
Herold and the editors of
Horizon is a beautiful pictorial
v olume of 400 illustrations
which trace the course of Napo-
leon's life. There is a brief text
which provides the continuity.
This is a distinguished book
and is of value for students as
well as for the casual reader.
The Richmond Raid by UJohn
Brick is a novel about one of
the most dramatic episodes of
the Civil War the abortive
Kilpatrick Cavalry raid on
Richmond in 1864. Brick is well
known as the author of Jubilee.
Bo und for Diplomacy, by
Valentine Lawford is an ac-
count of the early years of a
young man during his training
for the life of a 20th century
diplomat. The account includes
Lawford's youthful reactions
and experiences when staying
with a variety of European
families at several foreign univ-
ersities and at Cambridge.
When he at last was admitted


to the British Foreign Office,
many of the positions for which
he had prepared himself were
occupied by brilliant and some-
times eccentric specialists who
entertained varying reactions
to the rising crises of the pre-
World War II era. Lawford
had a distinguished career, has
now retired and is living in the
United States. He has published
articles in the Atlantic Monthly
and in Vogue.

Blood Banks Are True



Community Enterprise


Many surgical procedures
that can save lives depend for
their success on the use of
human blood. Need can vary
from as little as one pint to as
much as 40 or more in severe
cases. Regardless of the quanti-
ty, when blood is needed, the
need is urgent right now!
At Gorgas Hospital, for ex-
ample ,one expectant mother
required 33 points of blood be-
fore she was out of danger and
safely delivered her child.
Blood needs in the Canal Zone
amount to about 2,500 pints in
the average year. Where does
all of it come from?
The blood banks at Gorgas
and Coco Solo hospitals are
truly a community enterprise.
All blood needed for patients at
the hospitals is provided free,
having been donated by civilian
and military residents of the
Zone.
Our two blood banks are
among 50 which have been ac-
credited by the American As-
sociation of Blood Banks, indi-
cating that they are maintain-
ing or surpassing specified
standards of patient safety and

How To Keep

Christmas Tree

Fire Safe
For a natural tree pick a
fresh looking, firm needled
tree, no bigger than you need.
Saw off the butt at an angle
an inch or more above the
original cut.
Stand the tree in water until
it is brought into the house,
and keep it in water until it
leaves the house. It will keep
fresh much longer. Check the
water level daily; the tree will
absorb large quantities while it
is indoors.
Support the tree firmly. Don't
locate it where, upright or
fallen, it might block escape
in case of fire. Under the tree
is no place to operate elec-
trical, fueled or mechanical
toys; it may lead to an upset
tree and possibly fire.1


procedures. In the Canal Zone,
not only the cost of providing
blood is saved, even cost of
processing the blood is absorb-
ed by the hospitals. As a result,
insurance rates are lower than
if a charge were required.
In recognition of the com-
munity spirit exemplified by
the blood donor-blood bank sys-
tem, today's Spillway inaugu-
rates a new feature: a listing
of Panama Canal organization
employees who have unselfishly
given of their time and them-
selves. The blood banks needs
your constant support. Please
don't hesitate to give, either on
a regular basis of your own
choosing, or when called upon
in an emergency.
If every eligible person gave
a pint of blood just once a year
the supply would be 10 times
the need. Put another way, if
every eligible person a -eed to
give when called upon, each
would be called only once every
10 years. A healthy person,
from age 18 to 61, can safely
give a pint of blood every 75
to 90 days.
The "Blood Bank Honor Roll"
such as the one found here will
be published periodically listing
recent Panama Canal employee
donors. It is not a complete
listing, as some donors prefer
that their names not be publish-
ed. W


Funds Coming


Fast To Buy


Kennedy Wreath

Contributions for the wreath
which Panamanian employees
of the Panama Canal propose
to place upon the grave of the
late President of the United
States, John Fitzgerald Kenne-
dy, continued to pour in during
the present week.
Employees contributions need
not be large, as what appears
most desirable to the commit-
tee in charge is that as many,
if not all, of the Panamanians
working in the Canal Zone
contribute something to this
tribute to be paid posthumous-
ly to the great American Chief
Executive who found his death
in a tragic way in Dallas,
Texas.
The fund sponsors ask that
those wishing to participate
make contributions directly to a
the Chase Manhattan Bank,
Balboa Branch. Please insert
the amount in an envelope and
address it "Credit to Recono-
cimiento al Merito J. F. K."
and either mail it or take it
personally to the bank.
The amount collected will be
used in the wreath, and what-
ever is left over will be ex-
pended in acquiring two plaques,
one to be placed somewhere
in Panama City and the other
in the Canal Zone, in memory
of the late President Kennedy.

Vm m a I" Ven a A nes


El ambiente quedarA embalsa-

de Balboa, desde el lunes tem-
prano con el penetrante aroma de
pinos que impregnarAn en la bri-
sa centenares de arbolitos de Na-
vidad que serAn puestos a la ven-
ta ese dia.
Simultineamente con Balboa,
los pinos y abetos que decoran
la alegria navidefia, irAn a la

En el almac6n de Paraiso se

vidad desde las 8:30 de la ma-
fiana, asi como en los de Gatdn
y Rainbow City. Apesar de que
estos dos iltimos no abren los
lunes, venderan inicamente Ar-

nes por la tarde, pero pondra a

y ofrece las explicaciones necesa-
rias. La excursion Ileva como
una hora.
Ocasionalmente grupos grandes
concertan una excursion terres-
tre de la Zona del Canal la cual
se inicia en el edificio de Asun-
tos Civiles, en la carretera Gail-
lard, donde terminal despu6s de
visitar los jardines de Summit y
las Esclusas de Miraflores. No es
raro que se encuentren una o dos
vacantes para otras personas que
aspiran a realizar esa excursion.
Cuando el caso lo amerita, se
exhibe una documental sobre el
Canal en la tarima de visitantes,
de Miraflores. Alli siempre hay
un Guia de 9 a 5 del dia, de suer-
te que grupos pequefos o visitan-
tes ocasionales, siempre hallan
quien les ofrezca explicaciones so-

se propongan hacer excursions
por su propia cuenta, no deja de
ser mejor que d6n aviso tambi6n
al Servicio de Guias.
En Gatdn hay un servicio simi-

ferrocarril transcontinental (1855)
de Am6rica. Para el viaje de
vuelta se puede escojer entire el
ferrocarril y un omnibus o taxi.


Evite que su arbolito


Sea causal de incencio *
Escoja un arbol de navidad que no sea mis grande de lo
que usted necesita mientras mas grande es el arbol, mayor
es el peligro.
Serruche el tronco del arbol a un angulo como una pulga-
da mas arriba del corte original; p6ngalo en agua y observe
el nivel diariamente; aseg6relo y acufelo bien y mantengalo le-
jos de objetos que despidan calor y de las puertas.
Los juguetes el6ctricos, de combustible o mecanicos no de.
ben armarse debajo del irbol; esto puede provocar que se cal-
ga el drbol y se incendie.
No use soluciones quimicas para proteger un arbol natu-
ral de las llamas; ninguno es completamente efectivo.
Mantenga el arbol en la casa el menor tiempo possible; si-
quelo apenas pase del Dia de Navidad.
Utilice solamente luces aprobadas por los Laboratorios Un-
derwriters.
Verifique que eno haya alambres desgastados, conexiones
flojas o enchufes rotos.
AsegOrese de que los fusibles de los circuitos el6ctricos no
son de mas de 15 amperios.
Apague las luces antes de salir de la casa o de acostarse.
Use adornos a prueba de fuego.
No use velas o llamas al descubierto en el irbol o en su
cercania.
No enchufe demasiados alambres a un mismo tomacorriente.
No deje que se acumulen los envoltorios; saquelos y b6te-
los en la basura.
No permit que se fume cerca del arbol, los adornos o en-
voltorios. Tenga siempre ceniceros seguros a mano.
Vigile a los nifios que juegan cerca del arbol y mantenga
los f6sforos, encendedores y velas fuera de su alcance.
Planee con anticipaci6n lo que debe hacer en caso de in-
cendio; saque a todo el mundo fuera de la casa si ocurriera
un fuego y no se le ocurra combatir el fuego used mismo,
marque el tel6fono 119 en la Zona del Canal 6 03 en Panama
y deje que los experts lo hagan.

Los accidents


no ocurren por si solos


iSON CAUSADOS!




Los Accidentes

Siempre que sucede un acciderte-ya sea que un hombre pierde
la vida, o una mujer rompe un plato-alguien se preguntarA iC6mo
ocurri6?
La respuesta deberia ser siempre la misma: no ocurri6, sino que
alguien, uno o various, lo causaron.
Los accidents no ocurren por si solos, siempre son causados; y
la casa casi siempre es motivada por la falta de una o mAs per-
sonas en el desempefio de sus tareas.
Supongamos que Ud. se cae en las escaleras de su propia casa,
rompidndose una pierna. Ese hecho no fud inmotivado. No habla
ningun pequefio duende esperAndolo para tenderle una trampa.
Algo le hizo caer y ese algo fud el resultado de la acci6n de una
persona o de alguien que no actu6, cuando debiera haberlo hecho.
Las probabilidades hacen suponer que la caida se debi6 a su
propia culpa.. Posiblemente Ud. estaba apurado y baj6 las escaleras
mis rApido de lo convenient para su propia seguridad; posiblemente
tenia unas copas demAs, o tal vez, Ud. estaba tratando de llevar
O una carga demasiado pesada, que le hizo perder el equilibrio. Qui-
zAs su vista no es buena y Ud. no se ha preocupado por ver a un
oculista.
Pero tambidn podria ser que alguien hubiera hecho algo para causar
el accident. Tal vez el Benjamin de la familiar dej6 sus patines en
la escalera; podrA ser que la alfombra estuviera rota, o el pasama-
nos en malas condiciones y nadie se ocup6 de arreglarlo. Tambien
es possible que la luz fuese pobre y Ud. no se preocup6 en reemplazar
la lamparita por otra mAs potente; o, a lo mejor toda la escalera se
vino abajo, simplemente porque estaba mal construida y nadie se
preocup6 de revisarla.
Si Ud. al caerse se rompe una pierna en su propia escalera, ello
puede ser el resultado de una combinaci6n de todas estas cosas.
Posiblemente Ud. estaba apurado y debido a ello, no observ6 los
patines que estaban alli tirados, y cuando se agarr6 del pasamanos
roto, 6ste cedi6 y no o1 pado sostener.

ZPATILL S BE
LA CENICIENTA
For alli anda una nifiita, que,
como la Cenicienta de la leyenda,
perdi6 sus zapatillas. Solo que
]a de ahora parece que las dej6
olvidadas abordo del vapor Cris-
t6bal y la Divisi6n de Transporte
Maritimo (telefono 3-1674) estaria
feliz de poder devolv&rselas.
Los zapatitos parecen ser los
de una nenita de como 6 afos
de edad y forman parte de pie-
zas de equipaje olvidadas o no
reclamadas; fueron halladas den-
tro de un maletin del tipo em-
pleado para llevar sombreros, co-
lor carmelo que, ademAs de las
zapatillas, contiene 2 trusas de
bafio, una azul floreada.
La Division de Transporte Ma-
ritimo tiene tambidn otros articu-
los dejados abordo del Crist6bal,
inclusive un maletin de prendas
de hombre, un prendedor de dia-
mante, dos sortijas de hombre
y una de muchacho. Se espera
que los respectivos duefios pasen
a reclamar esos articulos.

Reportaje sobre
Panamai en revista

de Venezuela
La revista venezolana "VEA
Y LEA" correspondiente al 26
de septiembre pasado, trae un
Suplemento No. 256, intitulado
PANAMA, Puente del Mundo,
de la autoria del senior Everar-
do Carcano, consistenfe en ocho
plans de texto y material grS-
fico muy bien presentados.
El Suplemento fue hecho con
ocasi6n de "cumplirse 60 afios
de vida independiente de un
pais cuya geografia es obra de
la naturaleza tanto como del
ingenio humano, seg6n reza
un subtitulo estampado sobre
antigua escena del corte de Cu-
lebra (hoy Gaillard).
La interesante cr6nica va
acompaiiada, como queda dicho,
de material grafico que incluye
fotos de la estatua de Vasco
Ndhez de Balboa y del busto
de Fernando Maria, Vizconde
de Lesseps y muchas otras. Se
rinde un tribute en ella a quie-
nes comprometieron su tithni-
co esfuerzo y yasta tecnologia
en la portentosa construcci6n
del Canal interoceanico, dedi-
cando a ello su vida.
GINGER EADES, director
femenil del COURIER, de
Evansville, Indiana, describe
en su diario una cr6nica de
su viaje por el Canal de Pa-
nama abordo del Santa Ma-
ria, en el cual pas6 per aqul
rumb a OGuayaqui Ecuador..


CASSIUS MARCELLUS CLAY, conocido en circulos pugilisticos co.
mo "El Boc6n", lograr lo que sabiamente se habia propuesto: en-
frentarse al campeon mundial de todos los pesos. Es algo asi como
si alguien planease -deliberadamente y hasta el i1timo detalle-
una campaiia publicitaria y spectacular que lo condujese finalmen-
te a encontrarse, cara a cara, con su ejecutor y verdugo.
"El Boc6n", como es p6blico y notorio, ha hecho mil morisque-
tas; ha vociferado en la plaza public, en fiestas, en gimnasios y
estadios, por television, en la pantalla de los noticiarios, en la calle,
en su casa, en una campania tenaz y bordeando con el ridicule que
lo ha mantenido constantemente ante la atenci6n p6blica.
No ha cesado de alabar la propia belleza fisica y vilipe-diar la
apariencia de los otros, buscando hasta por estos medios pocos
usuales, que se hable de 61 y que su nombre sea repetido de boca
en boca.
Z;Quv persigue con todo eso Cassius Marcellus Clay? Pues, sen-
cillamenle, que el 25 de febrero entrante las multitudes se con-
centren en Miami Beach, Florida, y paguen una taquilla de dos
millones de d6lares por ver al ex-presidiario Sonny Liston hacer
una cirugia plastica en la faz de un ilamado Cassius Marcellus Clay
hasta dejarlo convertido en Frankenstein Dracula Cuasimodo, el
espanto de criaturas y nifieras.
Pues no hay que Ilamarse a engaiio, Liston es muy listo y
uno de los mejores pesos completes de todos los tiempos. Ya lo dijo
Joe Louis, el ex-campe6n mundial: "Me alegro de que Liston no
anduviese por alli cuando yo peleaba". Liston es grandote, forni-
do y... brutal! Es un campe6n con todos los pelos, como se solia
decir para dar idea de que no se trataba de ning6n figuron, come
hay tantos, sino de un cabal y definitive matasanos.
El dia de su segunda pelea con Floyd Patterson, alguien pre-
gunto a Liston al encontrarlo en la piscina del Hotel Thunderbird,
en Las Vegas: ",Vas a hacer guantes hoy?".. Listen respondi6
con una sonrisa ir6nica: "Ahora no, 6sta noche a las 7:30." En 2
minutes 10 segundos (inclusive el conteo) del primer asalto ter-
minaba el pleito. Liston habia apenas "hecho guantes" con su
contrincante. Mas que eso: habia "hecho papilla" al ex-campeon
Patterson.
Los espectadores sonreian para si, recordando el preg6n de
un chicuelo que vendia refrescos antes de empezar la pelea. El
chiquillo gritaba: "Refr6squese ahora, antes del ultimo round;.
A quienes se propongan presenciar la massacre en Miami Beach,
les aconsejamos: vayan temprano para que Ileguen antes del ultimo
round y recojan la ultima mueca de dolor en el rostro de "El Be-
c6n", Cassius Marcellus Clay.
