Golden Poro-Poros Give Hint


Dry Seasor
Christmas is coming-but who
who cares? Everyone knows that
is falls on December 25th.
The favorite indoor or out-
door sport for Isthmians
these days is trying to guess
when the dry season will
start, or whether it has start-
ed.
Old timers can list a number
of sure signs. They range from
the blooming of the poro-poro
flowers to the drying of the table
salt. Some even bank on the
appearance of fuzzy-wuzzy cater-
pillars with curly red chest hairs.
Semi-official experts say that
the dry season starts shortly af-
ter the levels of Gatun and Mad-
den Lakes begin to drop and the
northeast trade winds begin to


1 May Be
blow. Sea temperatures in the
Pacific Ocean off Balboa drop,
too.
A sure sign used to be the
movement to the south of the
Intertropical Convergence Zone,
known. familiarly as the ITC
Recently the old ITC has been
discredited by younger and more
computer minded weather ex-
perts.
But not even the Panama
Canal Hydrographic Office can
deny that the weather so far
this December has been un-
.usually dry.
Dith the exception of a hit
and miss storm last Sunday which
brought nearly two inches of rain
to Pedro Miguel and an inch a
half to Las Cascadas, there has


In Town
been no rain to speak of at any
of the Canal Zone weather sta.
tions since December 5.
The level of Gatun Lake hag
dropped from 87.06 to 86.49 feet
and Madden Lake has gone front
249.92 to 249.54 feet.
The poro-poro flowers are
blooming. The salt is getting
dry. The skies are blue and
no doubt the caterpillers are
out-but where are the trade
winds?
From past records, however,
the annual period of three months
or more of dry weather usually
begins during the last two weeks
in December and ends early in
May.
As for the weathermen-they
still carry umbrellas. f


DREDGING DIVISION EMPLOYEES are sending heartwarming greet-
ings to the thousands of seafarers far from home who will transit the
Canal during the holiday season. It's visible from a far as ships
approach Gamboa from Gaillard Cut.



Greeting Glowing

r lT- I. I_____ nil iV-' LII U.r14,


The Panama Canal Dredging
Division's Christmas greeting once
again is twinkling against the tro-
pical sky.
The same scene of a stylized
poinsettia is used again this year,
but with some additions. The
* theme of the display of red,
green, and yellow lights is "Peace
and Good Will" and once again
this year the Christmas greeting
is hung from the auxiliary hook
of the crane Hercules.
The Dredging Division's Christ-
mas greeting faces south, greet-
ing northbound ships as they
leave Gaillard Cut. It can be
seen by land-based people from
Balboa Bridge, and also is visible
from the highway as one ap-
proaches Gamboa.
The Christmas greeting is de-
signed primarily to warm the
hearts of seafaring men who are
away from their homes and
friends at Christmas-time. Sym-
bolically, extends the hand of
the Dredging Division and the
Panama Canal in a gesture of
peace and good will.


They Work That

We Can Spend
Like the postal people who put
in all sorts of odd hours at this
time of the year so that the rest
of us can get our first-class mail
and packages promptly, the mem-
bers of the Payroll and Machine
Accounting Branch are having
some out-of-the-ordinary duty
hours.
They will not be at home writ-
ing last. minute Christmas cards
on Sunday, December 22. Instead
they'll be at their desks, proces-
sing pay matters that will result
in an accommodation for many
employees.

mentioned in letters written by
the youngsters in Panama. Gifts
were delivered Tuesday.
One child from each of the 52
Zone classroom went along in
buses to present the gifts per-
sonally and chat with the Panama
pupils. One skilled Canal father
had made a doll bed, several
mothers had sewed doll clothes
and little girls had taken several
stitches to outfit store-bought
dolls.
Mrs. Rosario Arias de Galirdo,
who originated the Child-to-Child
idea, was on hand for the presen-
tation.
Mrs. David S. Parker, wife of
the Lieutenant Governor, headed
the group in charge at the Peru
School, and Mrs. David Markun,
chairman of the PCWWG special
projects committee, handled arran-
gements at the El Salvador
School.


New System To Protect


Homeseek rs Announeed


In order to protect employees
who have a genuine interest
when they apply for quarters
in the Canal Zone, the Housing
Branch has announced a re-
vision in the quarters assign-
ment procedure to become ef-
fective January 1, 1964.
The new procedure will make
an employee ineligible to apply
for quarters for two weeks if
he declines a quarters assign-
ment. A stiffer penalty of in-
eligibility for 30 days will be
imposed on employees declin-
ing an acceptance of a quar-
ters assignment.
The Housing Branch explain-
ed that the present procedure
of advertising and assignment
of quarters was set up to give


all eligible employees an equal
opportunity to apply for quar-
ters. It was anticipated that
employees an equal opportuni-
ty to apply for quarters. It was
anticipated that employees
would be definitely interested
in the quarters when making
an application and would ac-
cept the assignment when it
was tendered.
The practice of some em-
ployees of applying for quar-
ters and then declining assign-
ment, or accepting and sub-
sequently declining, often works
to the disadvantage of other
applicants who have a genuine
interest, the Housing Branch
said.


Atlantic Locks


Cheer Crewmen


Aboard Ships

"Through these gates pass the
finest people-our fritnds."
This is the sentiment ex-
pressed on the Christmas cards
being presented this year by
the hospitable members of the
Atlantic Locks Employees As-
sociation to the officers and
crews of the ships passing
through the Panama Caial.
Christmas cards to the crews
of the ships using the Canal.
is a long-standing tradition with
the Gatun Locks employees.
They are presented to a mem-
ber of the crew of each ship
as it passes through Gatun
Locks during the two weeks
proceeding Christmas.
They were designed again
this year by Carl W. Reynolds,
leader machinist at Gatun, who
is an amateur photographer in
his spare time. They were
printed in Panama and pur-
chased with funds furnished by
the Atlantic Locks Employees
Association.
In addition to Christmas
cards, the Atlantic Locks per-
sonnel usually decorate the
locks area with lights and ban-
ner on the control tower with
holiday greetings. A permanent
feature is a huge Christmas
tree planted several years ago
near the locks wall. It is de-
corated with lights the week
before Christmas.
Christmas lights and holiday
greetings also are being put up
again this year on the control
towers at Miraflores and Pedre
Miguel Locks.

Employee Gives Ideas


On Excise Tax Laws


A Canal .employee not long re-
turned drom -home-leaves State-
side has some tips for co-work-
ers which may save them some
money in excise taxes, if they
decide to buy a new car while
traveling in the States.
The Spillway takes no respon-
sibility for interpretation of do-
mestic tax laws but is glad to
pass along this "fellow-employee's
comments and suggestions based
on his -own experiences and re-
search.
Incidentally, he says he
learned the hard way, and is
now out several hundred dol-
lars he could have saved had
he known when he bought his
car what the regulations are.
Two points, he says, are to
be borne in mind:
(1) In order for the manufac--
turer's sale of an automotive
vehicle to -quality for exemption
from manufacturer's excise tax
on the basis of exportation, cer-
tain pre-requisites must be met.
One of these is that the vehicle
must be sold by the manufacturer
for export, after receipt by him
of notice that it is intended for
export In this connection, it is

the manufacturer's sale to the
dealer rather than the dealer's
sale to his customer that is
controlling.
(2) Internal Revenue Service
regulations specifically state that
the -export exemption is not ap-
plicable in cases where sales of
taxable articles are made from a
dealer's regular stock, even
though actually exported.
The Canal employee says fur-
ther that where a manufacturer
sells an automobile on which the
excise has been paid, and such
auotmol5ile is subsequently ex-
ported, or re-sold for export, the
manufacturer may file a claim
for refund or credit of the
amount -of the tax involved, af-
ter acceptable proof is available
that the vehicle has actually been
exported prior to use in the
United States, provided, in ac-
cordance with Section 6416 (g)
of the Internal Revenue Code,
the manufacturer had notice,
prior to or at the time of his
sale of the automobile, of the
purchaser's intent to export or
re-sell for export.
As an alternative, the ex-
porter may secure the refund
pursuant to the provisions of
Section 6416 (e) of the code,
if the person who paid much
tax to the government waives
'his claim "to the amount.
The employee further explains
that'if 'the automobile is purchas-
ed from a -dealer who presuma-
'bly paid the 'tax to the manufac-
turer, and if there is no indica.
tion -that the manufacturer :had
knowledge at the time it sold
the vehicle to 'the dealer that it
was being purchased for resale
'for export, 'that tax is properly
due 'on the manufacturer's sale
of the automobile, even though
the evidence indicates the retail
purchaser did not use the vehicle
prior to -exportation.
The requirement o'f the code
and regulations that the article
be identified as being sold by
the 'manufacturer 'for :export, or
"for -re-sale 'for export, 'has not
,been, Ifulfilled, 'therefore !there
can be no refund of the excise

successful physicians in Pan-
ama if success at maintaining
a schedule has anything to do
with it. In addition to her re-
gular hours on duty at the hos-
pital, she keeps up with her
medical studies and does a
competent job of being a house-
wife and the mother of two
small children.
A medical intern with plans
to take a residency in pedia-
trics, Dr. Dodd isn't exactly
hindered when she takes care
of her own small son and
daughter. She checks them over
with professional skill but for
their regular medical check-
ups she takes 'them to a local
pediatrician. It's medical
ethics.
The daughter (of :Mr. and
Mrs. Rafael 'Oberto A., former-
ly of La Pintada, Dr. Dodd
studied at the Panama National
Institute and 'went 'on to the
University of Panama on a go-
vernment 'scholarship. In the
medical school graduation class
of -1962, she was one of four
women.
She is not 'the only doctor in
her family, howevere r. Her
brother, Dr. Rafael Oberto, Jr.,
is now practicing .at the Social
Security Hospital and the
Health Clinic in Pueblo Nuevo.
Dr. Dodd met her husband
in Panama when he came in
1957 with the U.S. Navy. After
completing his tour of duty, he
returned to Washington, D.C.,
and studied accounting. He is
a native of Maryland.
Dr. Dodd hopes that when
she completes her training, she
will be able to set up a clinic
-possibly in the house she and
her husband will build some-
day tin Panama.

In San Jose Cartago Clear


What was once the cleanest.
city in this part of the hemis-
phere; is no- more. San. Jose,. Cos-
ta Rica, inundated with volcanic
ash from erupting volcano- Irazu-
some 50 kilometers to, the east,
has been having- a tortuous.
climate of daily -'rainfall" of
gray- ash that infiltrates into
everything;
Yet the City of Cartago,
much- closer to the- volcano,
remains clean.
This report, from returning va-
cationers, confirms- press associa-

Doors of hotels and- business-

Machinery, cash- registers,
typewriters, teletype mach-
ines, and office. equipment
generally is undergoing, wear-
ing friction caused by the-
abrasive dust of the volcanic
ash. All, will require consi-
derable maintenance,
In houses, hotel rooms, and
offices, the dust seepsin-through-
all: crevices, not sealed. In res-
taurants, it is necessary to--wipe
off all. tablets, and chairs., before-
being seated. The ash,, which is.
gray when dry; turns a; deep-
black when moistened- or wet;
and; has the consistency of wet
sand.
Roofs of buildings are- swept
to remove the- weight;, the dust,
is collected by: hand scooping it
and placing, it' in, buckets. In- the
streets, men. constantly, brush, it

When- the, winds blow from-
the northwest, San Jose citizens
awaken to find a- gigantic black-
cloud overhanging- the city- in, a-
direct life from; the volcano,- -
looking, much like the- streamer
of an airplane- contrail; The-

PEOPLE IN THE SPOTLIGHT
WHILE THE PACIFIC SIDE SLEEPS, uniformed Canal Zone police make their inspections, taking note
of anything unusual in the streets, or around public buildings or housing areas. If requested, they keep
a special eye on the quarters of families who are away on vacation. While police claim no intuition
as to when a burglar might be coming by, these extra checks have often saved loss of householders'
property, or been instrumental in its return. Many times they also result in the arrest of the offender.

POLICEMAN PAUL. V. O'DON-
NELL takes a night look-see to
learn what may be going on bey-
ond these casement doors. In his
:: -- -- .. 12 years with the Canal Zone
police he has had some dramatic
experiences and some surprises.
But what "scared the wits out
of me one midnight" was the
unexpected sight of a big spider
monkey in a second floor office
during a routine check. He has
also suffered some foot injuries
on the job, but nothing : per-
manent. O'Donnell left Junior
College to sign up with the po-
lice. Earlier he had handled mil-
itary-transport loading while in


the Air Force. He is a widower
living in Balboa, has a daughter,
6, and a son, 3. Besides playing
with the kids, he enjoys fishing
for corbina, and a bit a hunting
for deer, pig and coneio. The
game is forewarned to move fast
when O'Donnell is near. for he
qualifies as an expert shot, with
both rifle and pistol. Sometime he
shoots with local gun clubs.


ONE OF THE NEWER MEMBERS
of Balboa District's finest, Police.
man Michael P. Gordon makes a
night inspection patrol of quart-
ers in the La Boca Area. He is
on his rounds in the police cruis-
er now parked alongside the
house with its top-light in the
foreground. Born in New York,
he graduated from Seabreeze
High School in Daytona Beach,
Florida, and served in the Ma-
rines for four years. His tours of
duty included Europe and Ft.
Amador, where he was assigned
as a lifeguard before his dis-
charge 16 months ago. A month
before that, he and his Florida-
born wife welcomed twin boys,
Patrick and Christopher, at Gor-
gas Hospital. He finds police work
so interesting that he is studying
a correspondence course in the
science of criminal investigation.
That and the twins leave him
few odd moments, but he likes
to fish and play golf when he
can.

THIRTEEN IS NOT an unlucky number for H. G. "Tom" Crogan
shown receiving his 13th employee suggestion award from Gover-
nor Robert J. Fleming, Jr. Crogan, a locomotive engineer in Bal-
boa, has submitted 72 suggestions, has had 13 adopted and has
nine pending. Each of his 13 awards was accompanied by a
check, the largest for $35. He has been in the Canal Zone for
only two years, but has been a railroad engineer for 13 years.
Before coming to the Zone, Crogan had experience in the restau-
rant business and in running an office equipment organization in
West Virginia and Maryland. He has four children, all by a
previous marriage. The eldest, a daughter, is married and has
three children. A son is preparing to enter the clergy, and two
younger sons are in school in the States. He and his wife, Addie,
live in Balboa. Special hobbies which consume free time are
bowling, swimming and plenty of walking. And, obviously, sug-
gesting. And as The Spillway goes to press, there's a strong pre-
diction engineer Crogan may accept his 14th award next Monday.


TRANSIT SPOTLIGHTED
The: Panama Canal was in the
spotlight recently in the Evans-
ville Courier of Evansville, Ind.
The women's editor on the
Courier, Ginger Eades, took a
cruise aboard the S. S. Santa
Maria to Guayaquil, Ecuador.
The article covers the entire
transit of her ship through the
Canal and includes a four-
column picture of the Santa
Maria passing through Mira-
flores Locka.


REV. FERRIS NOMINEE
The Rev. Raymond Tuttle
Ferris, former dean of the
Cathedral of St. Luke in Ancon,
has been nominated for bishop
coadjutor of the Episcopal Dio-
cese of Central New York.
From 1942 to 1944 Rev. Ferris
was general missionary in the
Zone. He was dean of the Cathe-
dral of St. Luke in Ancon from
1944-1954.


Briefing



Room Set



AtAdmin

Room No. 10 in the basement
of the Administration Building
has undergone remodeling and
is now available for use as a
modern briefing room, equip-
ped with various types of audio-
visual aids.
Among other innovations,
the room now has a built-in
speaker's rostrum, with con-
trols for lighting and opera-
tion of audio-visual equip-
ment.
Other permanent facilities ad-
ded to the room are: a 16-mm
movie projector (equipped for
sound) and two 35mm slide pro-
jectors, set up for rear projec-
tion; blackboards, bulletin boards
and easels, and other briefing
aids. There is a seating arran-
gement for 40 people.
Apart from what may be found
in the Briefing Room, other aids
for briefings may be obtained
from the Graphic Branch of the
Administrative Services Division.
Among these are slides, including
art work and illustrations, in
black and white or color;' auto-
matic projection -equipment, with
or without sound (Selectrovision);
movie equipment; over head pro-
jectors; tape recorders and other
sound reproduction equipment.
Last week several demonstra-
tions were given covering the
facilities of the Briefing Room
and the Graphic Branch.
The Briefing Room is intend-
ed for use primarily in brief
ings, generally those involving
the use. of movies or slide
projeciton equipment. When
available, it also may be used
for official meetings, as well
as semi-official meetings by
public-service organizations.
Reservations for the Briefing
Room may be made through the
secretary to the Panama Canal
Information Officer, telephone
2-1880.




Public Invited


To 'The Messiah'


On Studve ruise In Balboa Sunday


Traveling is a favorite pas-
time of teachers during the
summer vacation. An ingenious
teacher-inducement program is
one conceived by the Hilton
Tours organization: it offers
transferable college credit
courses on a cruise.
The courses aboard ship were
offered by instructors from one
of the California State colleges.
The trip begins on the West
Coast, goes through the Pan-
ama Canal, and on to Europe.
The courses take only from one
to three hours per day aboard
ship.
Such shipboard college credit
courses have a two-fold appeal.
First, the additional experience
enables teachers to obtain sala-
ry increases. It encourages
teachers to take the vacation
they wanted and still go to
school, as they might have done
at a university.
Second, their travel expenses
become deductible from their
income taxes as expenditures
for professional advancement.
If the study-cruise is success-
ful this year, it is expected to
lead even greater opportunities
next year. In addition to the
Europe tour, the organization
is offering optional credit cour-
ses to Japan and around the
world.

LIVING CONDITIONS

nal Zone resident, recently gave

"ALGUIEN QUIERE TELEFONEAR?", pareciera pre3untar la esposa del Vice-Gobernador, dofia Betty de
Parker cuando en compaina de la seiora Lila de Strumpf acudi6 a distribuir juguetes a los rifios en la
Guarderia Infantil de la Cruz Roja de Panama. Los aguinaldos fueron coleccionados por las Damas del
Canal de Panama y donados a las criaturitas durante alegre fiestecita de Pascuas que alli se les ofreci6,


Revisaran Procedimiento


Para


Obtener


Viviendas


Para protecci6n de quienes verdaderamente tuvieren interns en obtener aloja-
miento en la Zona del Canal, la Oficina de la Vivienda ha anunciado una revision de su
procedimiento para la adjudicaci6n de las mismas que entrarA a regir el primero de ene-
ro venidero.
Los nuevos reglamentos descalificarAn por 2 semanas a aquellos empleados que
habiendo solicitado acomodo, rehusen el que se les asigna.
Para quienes acepten inicialmente el acomodo ofrecido y lo decline despu6s de
aceptado, la pena sera mas several: 30 dias de descalificaci6n.
La Oficina de la Vivienda explic6 que el procedimiento actual de anunciar la dis-
ponibilidad de viviendas fue establecido con miras a ofrecer a todos los empleados por
parejo igual oportunidad de solicitarlas. Se pens6 que los empleados que pedian alo-
jamiento tenian un interns definitive en obtenerlo y, por lo tanto, lo aceptarian una
una vez les fuese asignado.
La prActica de pedir alojamiento y despu6s rehusarlo cuando le es asignado, o la
de aceptarlo primero para rehusarlo despu6s, perjudica tambi6n a quienes si estin
animados de un genuine deseo de encontrar vivienda en la Zona del Canal.

ESTOS


NO DESCANSAN!


Lo mismo que los empleados
de correo que tienen una inmen-
sidad de trabajo en esta epoca

podamos recibir pronto las car-
tas y los paquetes, los miembros

tan trabaiando mas que de ordi-

Ellos no podrAn estar en sus

No se pag6 compensaci6n de

tampoco cumplia pagar compen-

PAZ Y BUENA


VOLUNTAD DA


Division de Dragas
La Division de Dragas del Ca-
nal de Panama nuevamente ha
colocado un saludo de Navidad
que parpadea bajo el cielo tro-
pical.
Este afio se ha empleado igual
disefio de poinsettia que el pasa-
do afio, pero con algunas modifi-
caciones. Con vividos colors ro-
jo, verde y amarillo las luceci-
llas transmiten el mensaje de
"Paz y Buena Voluntad", desde
su percha en la gria flotante
H6rcules.
El mensaje navidefio de la Di-
visi6n de Dragas da cara al Sur,
para que pueda ser vislumbrado
per las naves que navegan rum-
bo al Norte al acercarse estas
al Corte Gaillard. De tierra se
puede divisar el letrero desde el
puente de Gamboa y la carrete-
ra que conduce a esa pobla-
cion.
Este saludo de Navidad tiene
por fin primordial el alegrar a
los bravos mariners que estAn
ausentes de- sus lares en la 6po-
ca navidefia. Simb6licamente es
un abrazo que la Divisi6n de
Dragas y el Canal de Panama
ofrece- en gesto, de paz y buena
voluntal


su hirsute forma los ciempids pe-
ludos... S61o faltan los vientos,
que no soplan...!
En recientes afios la dpoca ve-
raniega. -de unos 3 meses de
duraci6n- se ha iniciado en la
iltima quincena de diciembre,
terminando a principios de ma-
yo.
Precaviidos, los. pronosticado-
res del tiempo lucen aan sus pa-
raguas al brazo,... por si aca!


Sombreros, paraguas, pafiue-
los, el tocado femenino, todo
adquiere un solo color gris que
tambien cubre la piel como
segunda epidermis. Rafagas de
viento alborotan la. polvareda
que se levanta omnipresente y
agobiante, dificultando afin el
respirar.
Las puertas todas permane-
cen cerradas, de espaldas al
viandante y luciendo un letre-
ro que pide "Empuje y, por
favor, cierre despubs de pa-
sar".
La maquinaria, las miquinas
registradoras, las de escribir,
las de teletipo y otro equipo
oficinesco sufre con la friccibn
a que es sometida por el abra-
sivo, polvo 'volcAnico.
Las oficinas, los despachos
pfblicos, los cuartos de hotel,
tienen que ser sellados como
protecci6n contra la ceniza que
por toda rendija se cuela y pe-
netra. Cuando se humedece,,
la ceniza se torna de gris en
obscura y adquiere consisten-
cia como de arena.
Los techos son barridos pa-
ra remover la sobrecarga de
la ceniza que es recogida con
ambas manos y echada en cu-
bos.
Las calls son constantemen-
te barridas, reeogida la ceni-
za en earretillas de mano y
amontonada en las esquinas, en
espera de camiones que se la
lleven.
Matinalmente amanecen los
carros cubiertos con una capa
de coma de un cuarto de pul-
gada de ceniza, utilizindose los
limpiavidrios para removerla;

Mens sana in corpore sano


Por cada gimnasio, campo de
deportes, cancha de golf o de pe.
lota, o parque para hacer ejer-
cicios que se abre, se cierran
irremediablemente las puertas de
numerosas cantinas.
No se trata de una t6sis filos6-
Tica ni menos de mera propagan-
-da, sino de un concept claro y
16gico.
En la edad en que se forja el
S carAeter y se adquieren los hAbi-
tos, coincide tambi6n con la 6po-
ca de desarrollo en la cual las
energies bullen en el cuerpo e
impulsan al individuo a la reali-
zaci6n de cualquier acto que pue-
da ocupar m6sculos y mente. Es
la edad dictil cuando el espiritu
es casi una argamasa, fAcil de im.
presionar en variadas formas al
capricho de quienes se dedica-
en -a esa labor.
Cumple, pues, aprovechar esa
aImpresionabilidad de la juventud
parn guiarla por rumbos prove-


chosos que los conduzcan a la
adopci6n de habitos de vida re-
gularizados y sanos, capaces de
asegurarles mejor salud fisica y
mental.
Si se deja al adolescent a la
deriva, sin guia y sin rumbo, pa-
ra que vague por las calls sin
oficio ni beneficio, se le expone
de hecho, al peligro de caer en
malas compafiias y a adquirir,
costumbres 'en nada ejemplares.
Si en vez de ello, en cambio,
le llevamos de la mano, simb&-
licamente sacari ventaja de las
oportunidades de cultivar su cuer-
po y su mente, por simbiosis, por
asi decirlo.
Ensdiiesele a conocerse a si
mismo, 'como pedia S6crates; su
filosofia y su psiquico, para que
aprenda c6mo dominar cuerpo y
alma y Ilevarlos per senderos
que le garanficen un future de
saiaut rental y de fortateza fisica.
Bella maquinaria es el cuerpo
humane para que se le- d4 el de-


bido use, con igual carifio y de-
dicaci6n que le damos *a un sun-
tuoso coche .deportivo. Y, pare-
jamente, lo es la mente que escu-
drifia los horizontes de la Sabi-
duria y procura penetrar los mis-
terios de la vida,
El hombre tiene ante todo un
deber para consigo mismo: cui-
dar de ese don que Dios le ha
confiado, tdefenrderlo de los em-
bates del vicio, de los estragos
del octo y la incursiones letArgi-
cas de la pereza.
D6mos a la Juventud campo
ancho para el ejercicio de -su
cuerpo, para el empleo de sus
energies, para que aprenda a
conocer su cuerpo y a respetarlo
y cuidar de l...
Abramos .gimnasios que asi co-
moe a batalla -de Waterloo dicen
los ingleses qu -se gan6 en las
